After careful analysis of a reader- 
ship survey last year, a decision 
was reached to change the 
Sewanee News to this format on a 
regular basis. Two December 
issues, including the annual gift 
report, have already been done 
this way. The newsprint tabloid 
enables us to get more information 
to more people for less money. 
With the University 's need to raise 
its level of annual giving substan- 
tially, and with the majority of 
the readership sample concurring, 
the plunge has been taken. 

We hope the water's O.K. Let 
us know. 

It is with a wrench that we 
sever the thirty-year-old tie 
between the Sewanee News and 
the University Press, which has 
produced, we think, much 
elegance over the years. Elegance 
yields to enhanced communi- 

Fourteen Cities Forge 
MDP Asking Chain 

Ayres Giving a Year 

Robert M. Ayres, C'49, chairman 
of the Million Dollar Program, has 
taken a year's leave of absence 
from his work as senior vice- 
president of the Rotan Mosle 
investment banking firm to give 
his time to the Million Dollar 
Program and to world relief pro- 
jects, paying his own expenses. 

This decision points up dra- 
matically that it's a whole new 
ball game for the Million Dollar 
Program. Earlier he had enlisted 
fourteen of his fellow believers 
and they made up a pool of 
$100,000. This will be given to 
the University of the South at the 
rate of one dollar for every two of 
increased giving, beyond the 
1973-74 level. If the $100,000 is 
claimed, the Million Dollar goal 
will have been reached. 

The facts of life for the Uni- 
versity are simple and self-evident. 
Donors have been generous despite 
their own pressures, fund-raising 
has been very good in comparison 
with that of other economy- 
beleaguered private institutions of 
learning, but it has not been good 

Hence. To step up annual 
giving to the fifty-per-cent level of 
increase now estimated as neces- 
sary to balance the operating 
budget without eroding education- 
al goals, the challenge grant has 
been launched and is flying and 

the professional fund-raising staff 
has been substantially strength- 

At the top of the professional 
fund-raising pyramid is William U. 
Whipple, the new vice-president 
for development, a veteran of long 
years of educating stewardship for 
dioceses, churches and other 
causes, an incisive and stimulating 
strategist. Joining him in the 
organizational work are Marcus L. 
Oliver, director of university rela- 
tions, Edwin P. Welteck, director 
for special resources, and John G. 
Bratton, executive director of the 
Associated Alumni. 

The one-to-one asking for gifts, 
the heart of the matter, is being 
done as always by a dedicated 
corps of volunteers. 

"We are not doing anything 
new," Whipple says. "The Million 
Dollar Program is well conceived. 
We are modifying the techniques 
somewhat. Essentially we are con- 
centrating efforts that were prob- 
ably too dilute before. The profes- 
sional staff can't pick up the 
whole world. We are putting most 
of our time into gifts in major 
areas of concentration." 

There are now fourteen areas 
in which volunteers are organizing 
a strong asking chain in the famil- 
iar United Fund or other local 
project pattern— chairman enlisting 
captains, captains recruiting work- 

ers, workers calling on potential 
donors of their choice, saying 
"Sewanee needs us because ... I 
am giving this amount. What do 
you after serious consideration feel 
that you can give?" 

And it's catching on. Organiza 
tional meetings in Dallas, Houston 
New Orleans, Memphis, Atlanta 
Tampa, St. Petersburg, Columbia 
Charleston, Nashville, Chattanooga 
San Antonio, Birmingham and 
Jacksonville have generated elbow 
to-elbow (occasionally raised) fric 
tion that has caught fire. "Give me 
him!" the volunteers respond 
eagerly to the roll call of cards on 
persons assumed to be responsive 
to a request to make a serious gift, 
proportioned to Sewanee's needs 
balanced against his or her own 
resources. Instances have been 
cited where an annual ten-dollar 
"tip" has been upped to a thou- 
sand dollars when the case was 

It is a moving experience to 
the professionals to observe how, 
when the need is presented, Se- 
wanee men and women and their 
associates by adoption swallow 
their personal reticence and trans- 
late their sense of gratitude and 
pride in the institution into the 
hard spadework of personal solici- 
tation and sacrificial giving. ^

The Challenge Grant 
"People who sense and share the 
world's longing for moral leader- 
ship at all levels, and who want to 
participate in its production" are 
invited in a recent widely distribu- 
ted brochure to make a gift to the 
University of the South. The little 
leaflet was issued by fifteen chal- 
lengers headed by Robert M. 
Ayres, C'49, of San Antonio, 
chairman of the Million Dollar 
Program for annual budget-related 

Putting their money firmly 
where their mouth is, the challeng- 
ing fifteen have pooled a pledge of 
$100,000 to add $1.00 to every 
$2.00 of "new money." 

In the paper Mr. Ayres, former 
chairman of the board of regents, 
answers some pertinent questions. 
Such as: "What is Sewanee's 
mission? Why should it exist?" to 
which he responds, "For more 
than a century Sewanee has been 
quietly dedicated to the cultiva- 
tion of independent minds within 
a Christian atmosphere. The world 
needs the Sewanee product as 
never before." 

Tuition Pays Half of Cost 

He points out that the percent- 
age of the operating costs of 
educating a Sewanee student varies 
from about 47 per cent to 52 per 
cent of full tuition and fees, and 
that every reasonable economy 
which would not adversely affect 
the quality of education has been 

"The Million Dollar Program is 
an annual program facilitating 
Sewanee's systematic attack on 
inflation and rising costs by 
increasing the gift income each 
year from its several constituen- 

"Tied to the University's fiscal 
year, it seeks to raise the differ- 
ence between total operating ex- 
penses and the income from 

tuition, fees and endowment. It 
also attacks the capital debt with 
gifts in excess of budget require- 
ments. It asks alumni, parents, and 
other friends— especially Episco- 
palians — to plan what portion of 
their yearly giving they will direct 
to Sewanee." 

Ayres says that the MDP in its 
four years, led first by Dr. Morse 
Kochtitzky, C'42, and then George 
Snellings, has doubled the amount 
of gifts available to the budget. 

The challenge grant was 
launched, he says, because "Sewa- 
nee needs at least $1,000,000 in 
unrestricted gifts each year to 
balance the budget and gradually 
to retire the capital debt. This 
means we must increase the recent 
track record by at least

Robert M. Ayres, C'49 

This drawing is one of a complete set of Associated Alumni 
presidents being done by Jefferson A. McMahan, C'76. They 
will be displayed in the Bishop's Common. 

Robert Moss Ayres, on leave of 
absence from his job as senior 
vice-president of Rotan-Mosle to 
serve as chairman of the Million 
Dollar Program and work for 
world emergency relief, is a trus- 
tee, former chairman of the board 
of regents and a past president of 
the Associated Alumni. 

He was born in San Antonio, 
Texas September 1, 1926. He was 
graduated from the Texas Military 
Institute in 1944 and the Univer- 
sity of the South in 1949 (he was 
a Navy lieutenant .1944-46). He 
did graduate work at Oxford Uni- 
versity in England and the Univer- 
sity of Pennsylvania's Wharton 
School of Finance and Commerce, 
attaining the M.B.A. degree in 

After two years with Kidder, 
Peabody and Company in New 
York and a year with Dittmar and 
Company in San Antonio he 
became president of Russ and 
Company in San Antonio. In 1973 
when Russ and Company joined 
Rotan-Mosle he became senior 
vice-president of the national 
investment banking firm. 

He is a member of the New 
York Stock Exchange and the 
American Stock Exchange, past 
chairman of the Texas Group, 
Investment Bankers Association of 
America, and a past member of its 
national board of governors. He is 
a member and past president of 
the San Antonio Society of Finan- 
cial Analysts and is on the board 

of directors of a number of busi- 
nesses and industries in his city. 

He is a member and past presi- 
dent of the Texas Military Insti- 
tute board of trustees and the 
Bexar County Chapter of the 
American Red Cross, and serves on 
the board of directors of a long 
list of other philanthropic and 
civic organizations. 

Last year he journeyed to 
Africa and Honduras to study 
needs and help directly. "Now," 
he said, "I expect to increase what 

I can do and go wherever these 
concerns take me." 

His wife, the former Patricia 
Ann Shield, is a Wellesley gradu- 
ate. They have two children- 
Robert Atlee and Vera Patricia. 

Watson Seeks 
Deferred Gifts 

In another vital area of fund- 
raising Edward W. Watson, C'30, 
also a Texan and also a World War 

II Navy lieutenant, carried out a 
long-planned working-for-Sewanee 
retirement two years ago. He and 
his wife have built a house at the 
Mountain's edge. 

A Phi Beta Kappa, " Harvard 
LL.B. and long-practicing attorney, 
he is the development office's con- 
sultant on deferred giving. He has 
been concentrating on the Pooled 
Income Fund, and has helped 
draw up five contracts in the past 
couple of months covering invest- 
ments totaling $43,200. The fund 
is paying the life-income benefici- 

aries interest at a rate of 9.4 per 
cent. The principal comes to the 
University upon the death of the 
surviving tenant of each contract. 

He has also assumed the chair- 
manship of the continuation 
committee for Emerald-Hodgson 

His wife, Esther, a musician, 
plays the carillon, waits table at 
the Hospitality Shop, and is in 
general a most gracious infusion 
into life on the Mountain. ^k. 

Alumni Bishops 
to Number 64 

Four men newly elected to the 
episcopate will bring to sixty-four 
the roster of alumni of the Univer- 
sity of the South who have be- 
come bishops. 

G. P. Mellick Belshaw, C'51, 
Suffragan Bishop of New Jersey, 
was a history major who attained 
his Sewanee B.A. in three years, 
attending three summer sessions at 
Bowdoin, Columbia and Harvard. A 
member of Delta Tau Delta, he 
served as head proctor. His prep 
school was St. Paul's in New 
Hampshire, and his S.T.B. and 
S.T.M. are from the General Theo- 
logical Seminary. 

He was vicar of St. Matthew's 
Church, Waimanalo, Oahu, Hawaii 
1954-57, rector of Christ Church 
in Dover, Delaware 1959-65 and 
since then of St. George's Church, 
Rumson, New Jersey. He was a 
fellow and tutor at General for 
two years (1957-1959) and was a 
visiting lecturer there in 1969 and 
1970. He edited two Lenten books 
published by Morehouse-Barlow 
and is the author of a number of 
articles in the Anglican Theological 
Review and the St. Luke's Journal. 

Three years ago he was a 
fellow-in-residence at St. Luke's, 
concentrating on communication 
by the written word, studying vari- 
ous styles and submitting his own 
for criticism by Dr. Charles Harri- 
son, who had taught him twenty 
years before. 

North by South 

Bishop No. 62 is the Rt. Rev. 
Reginald Hollis of Montreal, 
GST'66, who attended the Gradu- 
ate School of Theology for two 
summers, when his wife was en- 
chanted into becoming one of 
Sewanee's most articulate witch- 
watchers (see p. 17). Our Canadian 

contingent points out that Sewa- 
nee's ties with Bishop Hollis's dio- 
cese go way back, when Fulford 
Hall was named after an earlier 
bishop of Montreal. How about it, 

Numbers 63 and 64, still to be 
consecrated, are the Rev. William 
Augustus Jones, GST'62, rector of 
St. John's Church, Johnson City, 
Tennessee, who will become the 
eighth Bishop of Missouri and the 
Rev. William A. Dimmick, T'55, 
who goes to Northern Michigan. 
Dimmick was dean of St. Mary's 
Cathedral in Memphis until a year 
and a half ago, when he became 
rector of Trinity Church in South- 
port, Connecticut. 

Bishop-elect Jones has a daugh- 
ter in the College. ^k. 

Bishop Belshaw 

San Antonio 
Enlists for 

About thirty-five alumni and/or 
friends of the University attended 
an organizational meeting of Mil- 
lion Dollar Program volunteers for 
Sewanee in San Antonio, Texas, 
November 21. Robert M. Ayres, 
Jr., national chairman of the MDP, 
was host, on the top floor of the 
Frost National Bank Building in 
San Antonio. 

William R. Rockwood, lay 
trustee from the Diocese of West 
Texas and area chairman of San 
Antonio, was chairman of the 
meeting. Mr. Ayres gave a "State 
of the Union Message" concerning 
growth and conditions at the 
Academy, College and School of 
Theology. He also spoke of recent 
additions to the faculty and staff 
of the University. He covered de- 
velopment requirements and our 
continuing need to raise one mil- 
lion dollars in unrestricted gifts for 
budgetary purposes. William Whip- 
ple, vice-president for develop- 
ment, outlined the need to visit all 
alumni, parents and friends in the 
San Antonio area asking them to 
make unrestricted annual gifts to 
the Million Dollar Program. 

At this meeting twelve workers 
were listed to begin making calls 
on Sewanee prospects in San An- 
tonio. They were Neil Boldrick, 
Jr., Joe Dawson, Mike Dicus, 
James V. Gillespie, A. E. Harris, 
Julien O. Heppes, Reagan Houston 
IV, Charles H. Randall, Stephen R. 
Sinclair, Lyman Webb, the Rev. 
David Wendel and Jess Womack II.

The annual meeting of the board 
of trustees has been changed from 
its past scheduling immediately 
following Commencement to April 

"The arguments in favor of 
this change are many," says Presid- 
ing Bishop John M. Allin, Chancel- 
lor and chairman of the board. "It 
will relieve a very overloaded 
schedule at Commencement; it will 
enable the trustees to see the 
University in action, visit with

New Degree Program from 
Sewanee-Vanderbilt Coalition 

The School of Theology now 
offers a new degree program in 
conjunction with the Vanderbilt 
University Divinity School. Work 
pursued in the summer both at 
Sewanee and in Nashville will lead 
to the D. Min. (Doctor of Minis- 
try) degree. The Rev. Donald S. 
Armentrout of the Sewanee facul- 
ty is director of the joint effort. 

Work will begin this summer 
and the thirty-seven-year-old Grad- 
uate School of Theology will be 
phased out. Vanderbilt closed out 
its summer program two years ago, 
with its candidates working at Se- 
wanee. The two institutions form 
the Sewanee-Vanderbilt Theologi- 
cal Coalition and the new program 
is one fruit of this collaboration. 

The D. Min. is a second profes- 
sional degree, following the basic 
M. Div. (Master of Divinity), Dr. 
Armentrout explains. The object is 
to give candidates an opportunity 
to pursue the work in the summer, 
since it is difficult for many to do 
so at other times. "I want to stress 
that we also welcome non-degree 
candidates," Professor Armentrout 
says. "Anyone may come who just 
wants to take courses as continu- 
ing education." Some scholarship 
funds for tuition are available. 

Four Theology Degrees 

The D. Min. brings to a total 
of four the degrees in theology 
offered by the University of the 
South. In addition to the Master 
of Divinity awarded graduates of 
the seminary, there is a two-year 
program leading to the M.T.S. 
(Master of Theological Studies). 
This is basically an academic de- 
gree for persons not training for 
the parish ministry. 

The S.T.M. (Master of Sacred 
Theology), toward which summer 
graduate studies have led in the 
past, will continue to be offered 
but it is considered primarily a 
research degree while the new D. 
Min. has a definite professional 
orientation for parish ministry. "It 
reflects the concern of both the 
clergy in the field and theological 
seminaries for continuing educa- 
tion," Armentrout says. It is not 
designed to prepare people for 

teaching at the seminary or college 
level, he explains, as is the Ph.D. 
"Work for the D. Min. will be 
related to the practice of ministry 
—preaching, counseling, worship, 
Biblical exegesis, ethics— that kind 
of thing." 

He quotes a comment by the 
Very Rev. Robert T. Browne, dean 
of St. Michael's Cathedral in Boise, 
Idaho: "We need the discipline of 
a degree program, and at the same 
time I want something that will 
have a payoff for my parishion- 

This summer's session at Se- 
wanee will run from June 25 to 
July 30, following short courses at 

The Rev. Donald Armentrout, 
director of the new program, is 
assistant professor of ecclesiastical 
history at the University of the 
South, having joined the faculty in 
1967. Born in 1939 in Harrison- 
burg, Virginia, he is a graduate of 
Roanoke College in Salem, Vir- 
ginia. His B.D. is from Lutheran 
Seminary in Gettysburg, Pennsyl- 
vania and his Ph.D. from Vander- 
bilt. He was ordained to the 
Lutheran ministry in 1972 in an 
ecumenical service at Otey Episco- 
pal Parish, Sewanee. His wife, the 
former Sue Ellen Gray of Colum- 
bia, South Carolina, also studied 
theology at Vanderbilt. 

Joining him on the first-year 
faculty are Vanderbilt's professor 
of preaching, John Killinger, and 
Henry L. H. Myers, associate pro- 
fessor of pastoral theology at the 
University of the South, both of 
whom will be teaching at Vander- 
bilt; John M. Gessell, Sewanee's 
professor of Christian ethics, Dean 
Walter Harrelson of the Vanderbilt 
Divinity School and Marion Hatch- 
ett, assistant professor of liturgies 
and music at the Sewanee School 
of Theology, all teaching at Se-

A Brief History of the 
Graduate School of Theology 

by Donald S. Armentrout 

Dr. Royden Keith Yerkes came to the Theo- 
logical Department (now the School of Theology) 
of the University of the South in 1935. The dean 
of the Theological Department at the time was 
the Rev. Charles Luke Wells (1922-1938). Dr. 
Yerkes was Quintard Professor of Systematic 
Theology and had a three-fold vision of what he 
wanted to accomplish at Sewanee: "...(1) The 
'theological department' must become a 'School 
of Theology.' (2) The school must have a library 
as soon as possible. (3) It must envisage a 
'Graduate Department'" (Royden Keith Yerkes_, 
"The Beginnings of the Graduate School of the 
University of the South," Historical Magazine of 
the Protestant Episcopal Church, XXIX, No. 4 
(Dec, 1960), p. 319. Much of the information 
relating to the beginnings of the Graduate School 
of Theology will be taken from this article.) 
Yerkes calls the library the "twin sister" of the 
Graduate School since the establishment of a 
substantial theological library was essential to the 
operation of a Graduate School. 

During his first several years at Sewanee Dr. 
Yerkes learned that many alumni priests "....were 
anxious to do some kind of graduate work but 
could not afford to 'take a year off.'" He learned 
that "Some wanted to study for degrees; the 
majority just wanted to study, in order to 
increase their usefulness" (ibid.). In the light of 
this need, Dr. Yerkes moved to establish a 
Graduate School of Theology " afford to 
clergymen an opportunity for post-ordination 
study, in close personal contact with recognized 
leaders of theological knowledge and interpreta- 
tion" (Bulletin of the University of the South: 
The School of Theology, Annual Catalogue, 
1961-1962, p. 38). 

Vice-Chancellor Benjamin F. Finney encour- 
aged Dr. Yerkes in this endeavor and secured 
permission for use of St. Luke's seminary build- 
ings and chapel for a period of five weeks. (Dr. 
Yerkes decided on a five-week session since a 
semester was fifteen weeks and for attending one 
lecture a week a student would receive one unit 
credit. By meeting three times a week during five 
weeks a student could receive one unit credit 
also.) At the time the seminary was not accredit- 
ed and only two members of the faculty had 
graduate degrees. This meant Dr. Yerkes had to 
look beyond the seminary for his faculty. He 
turned to his friends and former colleagues. The 
faculty for that first session were Dr. Yerkes; Dr. 
Charles Wells, dean of the University of the 
South theological school and professor of ecclesi- 
astical history and canon law; Dr. Burton S. 
Easton, professor of Hebrew and Aramaic at the 
University of Pennsylvania; and Dr. James A. 
Montgomery, professor of New Testament inter- 
pretation at General Theological Seminary in New 
York. The two non-Sewanee faculty were given 
"....only transportation to-and-fro for himself and 
his wife, and entertainment during the five weeks 
here" (Yerkes, p. 320). Meanwhile Vice-Chancel- 
lor Finney named Dr. Yerkes "Director." 

Thus it was that the first session of the 
"Summer Graduate School of Theology" was 
held at Sewanee, July 26-August 30, 1937, with 
thirteen students paying $75.00 per person. 
Among those students were Henry I. Louttit, 
later third Bishop of South Florida, and George 
M. Alexander, later ninth dean of the School of 
Theology (1956-1973), and currently Bishop of 
Upper South Carolina. 

By the summer of 1938 Dean Wells had died, 
and Dr. Yerkes invited Dr. Fleming James, profes- 
sor of Old Testament at Berkeley Divinity 
School, to be on the faculty. (In 1940 Dr. James 
became the fifth dean of the School of Theology 
and professor of Old Testament. He held this 
position until 1946.) All four faculty members— 
Yerkes, James, Easton and Montgomery— for the 
summer of 1938 had their Ph.D.s from the 
University of Pennsylvania. In this same year, 
1938, the University Senate endorsed the gradu- 
ate school, and the nanre was changed to "The 
Graduate School of Theology," which was em- 
powered to recommend, students for the S.T.M. 

During the war years of 1942, 1943, 1944, 
and 1945, the Graduate School did not meet. It 
was reopened in 1946. One of the three faculty 
members of that year was Dr. Massey H. Shep- 
herd, assistant professor of church history in the 
Episcopal Theological School, Cambridge, Massa- 
chusetts. Dr. Yerkes served his last year as 
director in 1947. The director from 1948 to 
1951 was Dr. Marshall Bowyer Stewart, professor 
of theology in the Genera] Theological Seminary. 

In 1952 Dr. Shepherd became the director, a 
position he held until the summer of 1970, thus 
serving nineteen years. Under Dr. Shepherd the 
Graduate School reached its highest enrollment. 
Until the summer of 1952 students could work 
on the Bachelor of Divinity degree, as well as the 
S.T.M. , in the Graduate School, but this was 
changed in 1953. "The program leading to the 
degree of Bachelor of Divinity in this school has 
been suspended, and no new applications for 
entrance upon such program will now be ac-

For Allen Tate 

S AT 75 

A bright sun melted Sewanee 
mountain's snow cover and buoy- 
ed the already high spirits of a 
bevy of eminent writers, critics 
and literary scholars gathered over 
the weekend of November 15 to 
celebrate Allen Tate on his seven- 
ty-fifth birthday. 

To give permanence to the 
diamond jubilee of the man who 
was hailed repeatedly as, first, the 
greatest living American poet and 
then increasingly without qualifica 
tion as the greatest living poet, the 
National Endowment for the Arts 
and the University of the South 
sponsored a symposium of papers 
analyzing the varied facets of 
Tate's achievement. 

Simultaneously in London's 
Mermaid Theatre friends across the 
Atlantic also honored the occa- 
sion, with Robert Lowell, I. A. 
Richards, Stephen Spender and 
Roy Fuller reading. 

The Sewanee celebration 
evoked long sparkling tributes by 
at least two of the guests, Doris 
Grumbach in the November 30 
New Republic and Denis Dono- 
ghue in the December 13 London 
Times Literary Supplement. 

Allen Tate himself had been 
enjoined by his physician to limit 
himself to one of the weekend's 
events and that in his wheelchair. 
He entered the Sewanee Inn for his 
birthday banquet without wheel- 
chair and with great head held high, 
and applauded most vigorously the 
little friendly jibes that punctuated 

profound feeling with laughter. 
Poems written for the occasion 
were read at this time and the 
tributes were met by Tate with 
head bowed humbly and eyes close 
to tears. This most articulate of 
twentieth-century gentlemen de- 
clared his gratitude to be inexpres- 

The poems, all carefully craft- 
ed by leading poets of our day, 
1 were read in four instances by the 
poets: Richard Howard, Howard 
Nemerov, William Jay Smith and 
Radcliffe Squires. Poems by Rich- 
ard Wilbur, Richard Eberhart, 
Robert Penn Warren and I. A. 
Richards were read for them in 
their absence. Wilbur's contribu- 
tion was light-hearted and in the 
vein of his book for children, 
Opposites. Warren's was very per- 
sonal and perhaps wholly under- 
stood only by Allen Tate himself. 
Others marked the occasion and 
Tate's work and the poets' joint 

First of the public papers was 
by Denis Donoghue from Univer- 
sity College, Dublin, Ireland, 
"Nuances on a Theme by Allen 
Tate." It explored the connection 
between Tate's poetry and his crit- 
icism. Cleanth Brooks of Yale Uni- 
versity spoke that evening on 
"Allen Tate and the Nature of 
Modernism," dealing with Tate as 
thinker, demonstrating his profun- 
dity and the consistency of his 
developing ideas. 

Saturday morning Louis 
Rubin, Distinguished Professor of 

English at the University of North 
Carolina, presented an exegesis of 
Tate's poem, "Ode to the Confed- 
erate Dead." He called his paper 
"The Serpent in the Mulberry 
Bush Again," with reference to 
one of the last lines of the poem, 
and the fact that this was his third 
grappling with the subtle and com- 
plex work. 

Walter Sullivan of Vanderbilt 
University rounded out the public 
addresses with a discussion of Tate 
as novelist, "The Fathers and the 
Southern Myth." He documented 
his belief that Allen Tate's single 
novel, The Fathers, reiterated the 
same concerns as the poem, "Ode 
to the Confederate Dead," and

by Robert Penn Warren 

Endure friend-parting yet, old soldier, 
Though scarred the heart, and wry: the wild plum, 
Rock-rent, axe-bit, has known with the year bloom, 
And tides, the neap and spring, bear faithfully. 
Much you have done in honor, though wrathfully. 
That, we supposed, was your doom. 

Now you, who once by the grove and shore walked 
With us, your heart unbraced yet unbetrayed, 
Recall: the said and the unsaid, though chaff the said 
And backward blown. We saw above the lake 
The hawk tower, his wings the light take. 
What can ever be fore-said? 

Follow the defiles down. Forget not, 

When journey-bated the nag, rusty the steel, 

The horny clasp of hands that now your hand seal; 

And prayers of friends, ere this, have kept powder dry. 

Rough country of no birds, the tracks sly: 

Thus faith has lived, we feel. 

For Allen Tate 


Bishops, Fellows 
Pleased at St. Luke's 

that Tate's framework of the clas- 
sic Christian tradition gave his 
work a coherence that many of his 
contemporaries, in a fragmented 
modernism, have lacked. 

The papers were uniformly 
described as brilliant. Miss Isabel 
Howell, former Tennessee state 
archivist and later University of 
the South archivist, a lifelong 
friend of the Vanderbilt-launched 
"Fugitives"— for whom Allen Tate 
was an initiating spirit— went so far 
as to say, "While they were talking 
I did not miss the Old Ones— I call 
John Crowe Ransom and Donald 
Davidson the Old Ones. Later I 
wept that they were not here." 

A panel Saturday afternoon, 
"Allen Tate, Man of Letters," led 
by George Core, editor of the 
Sewanee Review, as moderator, 
Howard Nemerov, William Jay 
Smith, Lewis Simpson and Rad- 
cliffe Squires, pulled many of the 
threads together and introduced 
some new ones. 

Tate as editor was lauded, with 
the observation that during the 
brief period of his editorship of 
the Sewanee Review (1944-46) he 
turned the magazine around and 
made it a "channel of literary 

One aspect of Tate as man of 
letters that was touched on again 
and again, in formal presentations 
and in the many informal conver- 
sations that sprang up as old liter- 
ary friends talked through the 
night, was his role in bringing new 
writers and publishers together 
(Howard Nemerov, one of many, 
said that Tate found a publisher 
for his first book of poems), in his 
unfailing appreciation of talent 
and his kindness toward all aspir- 
ing writers* "He kept up a corres- 
pondence with half the writers in 
America," someone said. "It's hard 
to see how he had time for his 
own work." "You'd write a little 
article in some obscure journal and 
get a letter about it from Allen 
Tate in Rome." 

Walter Sullivan recalled that 
when he was nineteen and a soph- 
omore at Vanderbilt, Eleanor Ross 
Taylor took him to see Tate at his 
home, then in Monteagle, saying 
that here was a young man who 
had written a couple of short 

"Oh?" said Tate in a matter- 
of-fact way. "Give him a drink. 
Give him something to eat. Give 
him a bed. Give me his manu- 

Sullivan insisted, "It wasn't 
that I was anyone at all special. 
He was like that to everyone who 
had any notion of being a writer." 

Three bishops and eleven fellows 
have availed themselves of the 
School of Theology's two-week 
residence program, sponsored by 
the St. Luke's Alumni Association, 
since September 1.

Women have been among the most 
popular lecturers this year. In ad- 
dition to Margaret Mead (see page 
15) there was Margaret Chase 
Smith, who spent a week on the 
campus as a Woodrow Wilson 
Senior Fellow and garnered much 
admiration and widespread public 
attention with urbane fronting of 
the issues of the day. 

"On the scholarly side, Eliza- 
beth Sewell, poet-professor from 
England by way of the University 
of North Carolina at Greensboro, 
was the Michael Harrah Wood Lec- 
turer, the first of her sex to 
mount that podium. She wel- 
comed enthusiastically the new 
wave of respect for the non-logical 
side of the brain, and all her cited 
scholarly authorities were women. 

Scheduled from the duPont 
Lecture Fund was the second an- 
nual women's conference, with 
Women and Literature represented 
by novelist Ellen Douglas, literary 
editor Doris Grumbach and poet 
Alice Walker. 

Male achievers were to include 
Dr. Sripati Chandrasekhar, former 
minister of health and family plan- 
ning for India, under the auspices 
of the Association of Episcopal 
Colleges, and liberal Frank Man- 
kiewicz debating "The State of the 
Union— Who's to Blame?" with 
conservative Russell Kirk on the 
Student Forum.

clergymen who have been out of 
school more than five years, for 
whom the program was designed.

I've done a lot of reading and 
getting acquainted." 

He is making a special study of 
marriage and availed himself of a 
unit on marriage for the senior 
class, held while he was here in 
January. "In Ecuador I saw so 
many mixed-up marriages, and I 
wasn't able to help much. You've 
heard about people running away 
to South America— well, there are 
many people there who have done 
just that— then they find that 
they've brought all their problems 
with them." 

Noland of Louisiana, Gray of 
Mississippi and Henton of North- 
west Texas were the Bishops-in- 
Residence so far this year. Bishop 
Noland, as a trustee, used the time 
in part to sound out student atti- 
tudes on the curriculum, quality 
of instruction, etc. "It's a little 
surprising," he said. "I heard noth- 
ing negative."

The resoundingly successful Med- 
iaeval Colloquium of last year will 
be followed April 9-11 with a 
second M.C., with two of the 
world's most renowned scholars in 
their fields as headliners. Professor

Meet Your Regents 

Sewanee propagandists have often been adjured 
to watch a tendency to point out wherein the 
University of the South is the first or the most or 
the only, anything. So we will merely pose a 

How many universities have a chairman of 
their board of regents who is a professional 
management consultant with a Ph.D. in history? 

Sewanee has: Richard Burke Doss, C'50, 
Ph.D. the University of Virginia, president of 
Dulworth and Doss, Consultants. Thinking it's 
time anyone with any interest in Sewanee knew 
something about its governing board and what 
goes on in their hard-wording heads, especially 
now that the new magazine format gives us a bit 
more space, we zeroed in on Dr. Doss with a 
barrage of questions and give you his answers 

"Where I am now is in my office on the top 
(thirty-fourth) floor of the Gulf Building in 
Houston.. There are wide seven-foot-tall windows 
in big rooms brightly decorated to accentuate a 
'sun room' effect. The only desk is for my 
secretary, since informal, living room style aids 
my work with top executives. What I am doing is 
writing thank-you notes to each member of our 
staff for a good year. 

"The personal appointments you ask about 
include a picture of my naval aviator brother in 
the cockpit of an early aircraft in World War II; a ' 
picture of my former boss, Lloyd Bentsen, who is 
now the U.S. Senator from Texas and, as you 
may know, a Presidential possibility; the Alger- 
non Sydney Sullivan Award given me not by 
Sewanee but the University of Virginia while I 
was in graduate school there; a couple of poems 
written by members of my staff when I was with 
CNA Financial in Chicago; a photo of a bank 
president and me during a pheasant-hunting trip 
to Nebraska several years ago (he was my first 
client), and a citation from the Suburban Com- 
munity Chest Council in Chicago, an organization 
103 suburban Community Chests of which I 
ivas president. Oh yes, and there is a diploma 
rom the University of the South prominently 

"My office overlooks the industrial side of 
he city, which is strewn with refineries along a 
vinding ship channel which made Houston

ance we can see the Bay of Galveston and the

Marine Corps which made her even more un- 
happy. My most exciting moment in the Marine 
Corps was receiving the transmission that our 
troops had seized the major air field in Okinawa 
without a shot being fired. When I handed the 
message to the admirals and generals on the 
flagship, they thought I had goofed. They knew I 
didn't like shooting wars. I also sat in a Saipan 
foxhole on Christmas Eve, 1944, and watched the 
Japanese bombers drop tinfoil to foul the control 
mechanisms of our anti-aircraft guns. We were 
clobbered! And later when we occupied Japan, I 
watched thousands of badly burned and maimed 
Japanese people return to the ruins of a city 
flattened by an atomic bomb. 

"I entered Sewanee because there was a man 
named Juhan. He (Bishop Frank A. Juhan) had 
confirmed me, and we got to know him quite 
well because our parish was the end-of-the-line on 
his visitations and he often stayed overnight. I 
got out of the service in August, 1946, and it was 
too late to get admitted anywhere through 
regular channels. The Bishop swung it for me to 
go to Sewanee. I confess that I had wanted to go 
to Dartmouth— a number of us in the service 
together had agreed to go there. Once at Sewanee 
I forgot all about Dartmouth, just as later when I 
went to the University of Virginia for graduate 
work I forgot all about Princeton, my first 
choice. You might say I am a Southerner in spite 
of myself, and I am very glad indeed it worked 
out that way. 

"My original career plans were teaching, com- 
munications and athletic direction. As a matter of 
fact, I was contracted to coach at Sewanee 
Military Academy, but Dr. Govan convinced me 
to pursue graduate education. I had planned to 
do my doctorate at Princeton, but because of the 
late decision to enter graduate school, I sought 
my master's at Virginia. My experience there, 

both educationally and in extracurricular affairs, 
was so exciting that I continued my doctorate 
there. Sewanee and Virginia are a great combina- 
tion of fine Southern sohools, and I tell everyone 
I have attended two of the most beautiful 
universities in the world. 

"During the summers, while attending 
Sewanee and Virginia, I was a counselor and 
ultimately director of a private boys' camp in 
New England. During my last summer of graduate 
school, my research notes for my doctoral disser- 
tation were destroyed by fire, and that led me to 
the insurance business, because I was no longer 
eligible for fellowships and frankly out of money. 
■My Chicago employer generously gave me a 
month off to return to Virginia to take my orals 
and submit my dissertation. 

"After fifteen years of corporate management 
with two Chicago companies, I was selected to 
become president of Lloyd Bentsen's life insur- 
ance company in Houston, an opportunity I 
could not turn down, not just because of the 
presidency, but because of the opportunity to 
work with Senator Bentsen, who in my judgment 
is one of the brightest, most dedicated corporate 
executives with whom I have ever been associ- 
ated. After Lloyd was elected to the Senate 
(following an earlier career as America's youngest 
member of the House as of that time), the 
company was sold and I decided to do my own 
thing, which turned out to be management 

"Why consulting? Because it satisfies my 
interest in teaching and the challenge of business. 

"As for clients, my basic strategy was to 
establish the fact that I was first a professional 
manager and secondarily an insurance executive. 
Hence, I accepted no insurance consulting assign- 
ments in my first two years. Only a liberal arts

/ would contradict all that 
I do in the business world 
if I did not advocate and 
support more effective 
planning for Sewanee. 

major would try such a stunt, but it seems to 
have worked. 

"My clients have included investment bankers, 
a major multiple service transportation company, 
a flowers-by-wire company, several banks and 
bank holding companies, just recently a major 
insurance group, a fast-food company, three 
construction and engineering firms of different 
types, several manufacturing companies, a real 
estate management company, and even America's 
largest tie manufacturing company. 

"My appeal to clients appears to be my broad 
education and my broad management experience. 
About half of my corporate career was in what 
we call general management, that is working as an 
assistant to the chief executive officer and then 
being one; and the other half was running a 
major division of a large corporation throughout 
the United States and Canada. This would be 
called line management experience. 

"Though a doctorate in history hardly estab- 
lishes one's credentials to do the kind of work I 
do, the fact that I completed a broad and 
demanding general education seems to mean a 
great deal to my clients. Certainly the training 
has aided me throughout my, business career, 
because the premium in management is on the 
ability to think and learn and communicate. With 
an adequate brain, one can usually grasp the 
technical nature of a business sufficiently to 
apply sound business principles. The biggest prob- 
lem in top management is developing generalist 
rather than technical capabilities. 

"To broaden the function of our small firm, I 
developed working relationships with other com- 
panies who have resources I could not afford to 
build for myself. The most significant of these 
relationships is with the J. P. Cleaver Company of 
Princeton, on whose board of directors I now sit 
and which I also serve as an officer. This 
company has developed new and sophisticated 
techniques that are changing the consulting busi- 
ness and are consistent with my thinking. So I 
have the back-up of their staff and facilities. The 
company is part educational and part a total 
management resource. 

"The thrust of my work is corporate strategic 
planning. A high percentage of my time is spent 
assisting chief executive officers and their teams 
in developing their abilities to contend with the 
future. Recently, for example, I taught a two-day 
seminar in Saltillo, Mexico, to twenty-four Mexi- 
can executives who had tried to utilize planning 
techniques but found themselves floundering. 
After such a teaching stage, I usually work with 
the team over a period of time to develop a 
formalized system of planning that helps each 
executive use planning as a management tool at 
his desk. 

"I am at work on a book on planning, which 
I hope the publishers will call 'The Art of 
Planning' and in which I have written what 
hopefully will be referred to as 'the Doss Doc- 
trine.' This doctrine says: 'The art of planning is 
anticipation, the science is analysis and assump- 
tion setting.' This means that we take people 
beyond the world of numerical projections into 
the world of concepts, challenging the top man- 
agement team to be creative and innovative and 
to be able to develop strategies to achieve the 
results they seek in the future. 

"Out of hundreds of thousands of dollars of 
billings in the last three and a half years, I have 
failed to collect only six hundred dollars. I have 
never had any client complain, and over one-third 
of our consulting business has been repeat busi- 
ness from the previous years' clients. We feel 
proud of this record. 

"A word about Dulworth, of Dulworth and 
Doss, is in order. Jack Dulworth is a personal 

planner. I am a corporate planner. We work with 
the same kinds of people, that is, senior execu- 
tives in both the profit and non-profit worlds. 
Jack helps people deal more effectively with their 
personal financial and estate problems, whereas I 
help them deal with their corporate problems. 
Though we have not realized our full potential, 
we are both excited about a promising future. 

"Our work is people-oriented. We stress the 
importance of effective utilization of human 
resources in business, and so organization plan- 
ning becomes a major part of almost every 
assignment, and Jack Dulworth's work involves a 
practical concern for the welfare of the human 
beings in a family. 

"As for my family, my wife, who was Nancy 
Feldon, is a Yankee from the Chicago area, who 
was educated at Bradford Junior College and 
Northwestern University. She had experience with 
an advertising agency before joining the staff of 
the Institute of International Education. She has 
shifted her interest more to the world of fine arts 
since coming to Houston and is very active in the 
Docent Program of the Museum of Fine Arts and 
its gem, Bayou Bend. This is the home of a 
former governor of Texas, which is now one of 
the most beautiful and impressive museums of its 
type in the world. Nancy has trained and directed 
this guide and teaching volunteer staff, along with 
Sunday School teaching, United Fund and Junior 
League activities. She and I are both tennis 
players and golfers. 

"Our son, Rick, who . is just fifteen this 
month, is a fine young golfer who consistently 
beats his father and is about to beat his grand- 
father, who has been an outstanding golfer all his 
life. Rick is in public school. 

"Our seventeen-year-old daughter, Tracey, 
attends St. John's School, which is a local day 
prep school, and is also a fine tennis player. Her 
interest is interior design and architecture— that is, 
second to boys. Ginger, who is twelve, attends 
Duchesne Academy, seems headed for a theatrical 
career. She enjoys full participation in prep 
school sports and looks forward to each play and 
musical. She and her young friends sometimes 
give special performances in our home. 

"My civic and philanthropic work involves 
serving on the vestry of St. Martin's in Houston, 
being an officer and director of the Metropolitan 
Houston YMCA (twenty-two YMCA's in the 
greater Houston area), and my work for Sewanee. 
You asked about the Suburban Community Chest 
Council, an organization of 103 Community 
Chests, and it did succeed. They are now fully 
integrated into the Metropolitan Crusade of 
Mercy for Greater Chicago, which was why the 
council was formed in the first place. 

"My professional management 'expertise' has 
not affected my basic thinking about the value of 
the Sewanee education, but it has affected my 
feeling about Sewanee's future. Since I am sup- 
posedly a professional planner, I would contradict 
all that I do in the business world if I did not 
advocate and support more effective planning at 
Sewanee. The work is under way, as you know, 
but there is much to be done. The next step is to 
have a task force of regents state what Sewanee 
should be like at the turn of the century and set 
long-range objectives we should achieve by 1980. 

"There is no doubt we must increase our 
giving. I cannot update the figures, because we 
have not reached that point in planning. I can say 
this. I believe our objective of a million dollars of 
annual unrestricted gifts will soon prove insuf- 
ficient. By the 1980s, I will be surprised if we do 
not need something closer to $2 million to 
achieve operating surpluses, reduce debt, maintain

adequate compensation of our excellent faculty 
and administrative staff, keep up our magnificent 
physical plant and add the new programs the 
future will no doubt demand of us. 

"Just this morning I visited at length with Ed 
Welteck, who has been here in Houston this week 
working on our campaign, and I am greatly 
encouraged, in spite of discouraging economic 
and political circumstances and conditions, that 
people are responding to our call as favorably as 
they are. I am optimistic that under Bill Whip- 
. pie's leadership we will achieve our short-range 
and ultimately long-range objectives in developing 
sufficient financial support to sustain Sewanee. 

"Let me add this note about fund raising. It 
is hard work, yes, but once you get into it, it is 
personally rewarding and gratifying. Many people 
feel that it is unpleasant or unpalatable, and 
often I hear Sewanee men say, 'I'm just not very 
' good at that sort of thing.' No one is until he 
tries, and as I said to the board of trustees, we 
need to concentrate on building teams of askers 
rather than just seeking givers. Dr. Bennett and 
Bill Whipple and volunteers like Bob Ayres and 
George Snellings and Dr. Kochtitzky are doing a 
splendid job in building our cadre of askers. That 
is why I am so optimistic about the future. 

"If we ask, people will give. We have a great 
story to tell. All we need is people to tell it. 
Funds will follow. The regents themselves have 
turned into the Number One team of askers. We 
are concentrating on contacting trustees. My 
assignment included a housewife in Georgia, a 
lawyer in northern Virginia, a real estate execu- 
tive in Florida, a priest in western Arkansas and a 
retired civil servant in North Carolina. I have 
asked each of them to talk a little bit about what 
they think the proper role of a trustee is, and 
without exception they recognized the impor- 
tance of becoming an asker in the fund-raising 

"You've asked me to comment on the 
atmosphere of a regents' meeting. A distinguish- 
ing characteristic of the meetings, as compared 
with other boards on which I have served, is the 
spiritual quality. Traditionally the Chancellor 
opens the meeting with a prayer, or when he 
cannot be present another bishop or priest opens 
for us. We always go to chapel, sometimes a 
special chapel service, and we find Christian 
principles at work in the way we deal with each 
other and with the thorny issues we face. I 
cannot over-emphasize this distinguishing feature 
of our lives together on that board. 

"A second quality of the atmosphere is what 
I like to call 'businesslike.' Though we loosen up 
with a laugh now and then, there is very little 
wasted motion, and a deep sense of urgency 
prevails. It is highly unlikely that we will ever 
achieve all that we would like to achieve in the 
three days we are together three times a year, but 
every man makes his best effort. Each year there 
is usually one special board meeting and usually a 
committee meeting or two, so we give at least 
two work weeks a year and probably more. We 
pay our own way, try to set the pace in 
contributing funds, and spend many hours corres- 
ponding and telephoning. I have never heard any 
regent complain about work, and attendance is 
over ninety per cent. We have a sound organiza- 
tion structure with established procedures to 
follow, but we make a conscious effort not to be 
so businesslike that we do not have time for 
informal exchanges of views. We visit with stu- 
dents and faculty, hear special reports from 
non-regents, and try hard to keep our fingers on 
the pulse of university life. 

"What goes on in a regents' meeting? There 
has been so much in my three years that I cannot 

easily choose an example to describe. Let's take a 
recent one: the hospital issue. Though our formal 
committee and subcommittee structure was well 
enough designed to deal with the hospital matter 
in established channels, we decided to form a 
special ad hoc committee to increase the involve- 
ment of the local community in resolving the 
problem. That approach involved a number of 
non-regents in regent proceedings. That's the best 
kind of approach, I think. Not to regard ourselves 
as some kind of superior policy-makers who 
impose our views on others, but to promote full 
participation, a thorough hashing-over, and ulti- 
mately much sounder decisions. 


From the 1974 regents' report to the trustees 

I think it is fair to concede that we are a 
financially sound corporation. Our balance sheet 
is impressive, though neavy in fixed assets and 
somewhat light in what we would consider 
working capital. We are land-intensive, burdened 
with debt and resulting debt service costs, and we 
have cash flow problems. Hence, a planned effort 
to improve the manner in which we utilize our 
land resources is under intensive study by a 
standing subcommittee of the regents. The most 
effective ways to manage and ultimately eliminate 
our debt are also under constant review— with 
debt reduction a top priority. The treasurer's 
office is doing a fine job in cash flow manage- 
ment, but faces limitations and constraints. 

The solution of these financial problems must 
come from two basic strategies: 

1) Further improvement in operations-earned 
surpluses, if you please, and 

2) Improved annual giving. 

We have made headway in improving opera- 
tions but there is still room for further improve- 
ment. The pressures are great, so I am not 
optimistic for significant short-run, earned sur- 

As others have said and doubtless will say 
again, the best solution to these continuing 
financial problems is to raise the level of annual, 
continuing, unrestricted giving to $1 million or 

This fundamental problem is not just a 
regents' problem or an administrative problem or 
a trustees' problem. It is ours together, and it is 
the problem of our owning dioceses! 

"After a number of special and regular com- 
mittee meetings and general consideration before 
the full board, several of the regents closest to 
the problem felt we were ready for a decision. 
Others felt more information and reflection were 
needed, and so to the outside world we appeared 
to be procrastinating. My view was that the wait 
was well worth it. A special board meeting was 
called in Atlanta. Though the decision was no 
easier, I think we made a better final decision. As 
the regents were polled on the resolution to 
proceed, one said, 'My head says "no," but my 
heart says "yes"— I vote "aye."' Ultimately I 
think the heart votes and the head votes both 
will be judged correct. Certainly the financial 
support we are receiving from the local communi- 
ties says we are launched on a successful if 
somewhat daring venture. 

Meet Your Regents 

// we are to change, we 
should do it by design and 
not by accident. 

"You've asked for more comment on long- 
range planning. Yes, we did circulate question- 
naires to members of the faculty, but also to 
members of the board of trustees, the administra- 
tion, students and regents themselves. In a nut- 
shell, the responses said that there was no great 
desire for significant change in Sewanee. The 
responses did give us a better fix on our priorities 
and confirmed the basic desires of all groups 
polled to enhance the quality of the University in 
many respects. 'More of the same, but better.' 

"As for the function of the board of trustees, 
the board of regents and the administration, let 
me first refer you to the Constitution and 
Ordinances. The charter under which the Univer- 
sity was organized stipulates that the trustees 
shall have the power 'to designate how, by 
whom, and in what way the said university shall 
be governed.' The trustees have the power to 
appoint a president, to make by-laws and ordi- 
nances for the government of the University, to 
appoint professors and other officers and to 
regulate their duties and conduct. The trustees 
also are required to elect a board of regents, 
which is 'vested with all the powers and authority 
granted in the Charter, except such powers as are 
heretofore expressly reserved by the Board of 
Trustees.' Such reserved trustee powers include 
election of the board of regents (so it is not a 
self-perpetuating body), a Chancellor, a Vice- 
Chancellor, and a Chaplain; to approve amend- 
ments to the Charter or Constitution and to 
control lands and buildings. 

"By the way, the Constitution also says it 
should be the duty of the trustees to 'promote 
Church support and student enrollment.' Trustees 
also are responsible for approving, modifying or 
rejecting all plans for the growth and develop- 
ment of the University and are responsible for 
evaluating progress toward established goals. 

"The Constitution says rather simply: 'The 
Board of Regents shall be the administrative and 
executive body of the University.' 

"Briefly then, the board of trustees is the 
governing body of the University, and the board 
of regents acts in behalf of the trustees. The 
concern of both bodies is policy, not daily 
administration or management. Policy is lasting 
decisions on significant issues. We look to the 
administration, or the management team, to 
implement and interpret policy and be held 
accountable for results. Acts of the board of 
regents must ultimately be reviewed and approved 
by the board of trustees. We report to them once 
a year to request ratification of our acts and to 
seek their determination of issues which only 
they can handle. 

"As for the administration, we must start 
with the Vice-Chancellor, who is the chief execu- 
tive officer. The Constitution provides that he 
shall be 'administrative and executive head of the 
University.' He is both the head of an educational 
institution and president of a corporation. His 
duties include responsibility for the discipline of 
students, for municipal government, and for the 
regulation of all persons residing on the domain. 
The Constitution specifies some other administra- 
tive positions but the Vice-Chancellor has con- 
siderable freedom to staff his organization. 

"The Chancellor is chairman of the board of 
trustees and, with the Vice-Chancellor, an ex 
officio member of the board of regents. Bishop 
Girault M. Jones, who was resident in Sewanee 
during most of his term, built the Chancellorship 
into a strong working position, and the present 
Chancellor, in addition to his heavy responsibili- 
ties as Presiding Bishop, has continued close 
communication and active participation with both 

boards. Having the Presiding Bishop as Chancellor 
should add a new dimension to the position and 
give us a great advantage in enlisting more church 
support and more nation-wide interest. 

"To your last question on my views and 
hopes for Sewanee, my answer in capsule is: 
'Good health!' By that I mean sound institutional 
and personal health of the corporate entity and 
its individual constituents. A healthy spiritual 
environment, sound financial condition and fiscal 
integrity, devoted teaching and dedicated learning 
in an atmosphere of academic freedom, a full 
complement of talented students in the Academy, 
School of Theology and College, each of whom 
will be respected as an individual child of God, a 
favorable physical and psychological environment 
free from strife and discord, though not without 
the benefits of honest differences, open ex- 
changes and thoughtful consideration of the views 
of the dissenters, and a viable program of 
extra-curricular activities conducted on a purely 
amateur (non-subsidized) basis. 

"A couple of specifics have crept through in 
some of my previous remarks, such as my 
concern for growth and diversification of pro- 
gram. In the past twenty years, Sewanee has 
grown at an average compound annual rate of 
approximately four per cent, in terms of overall 
student body size. We will have to take specific 
action if this growth is to cease. I question if that 
is wise, - if we are to continue to serve our 
constituency. Pressures on enrollment may 
diminish and dictate a leveling of size, but I 
doubt it. We have such a fine institution that I 
believe people will continue to seek the Sewanee 
experience in increasing numbers. 

"As for diversification of program, I hope we 
remain as pure a liberal arts institution as 
possible, but we already have programs which do 
not satisfy purist definitions of liberal arts. 
Hence, through planning, we need to make policy 
determinations on the breadth and depth of 
academic and academic-related programs. If we 
are to change, we should do it by design and not 
by accident. That is what planning is all about— 
■ the management of change. If we are or are not 
going to grow, we should do it consciously. We 
should establish long-range objectives, goals, and 
seek to achieve them in the best interest of the 
constituency. We should measure our perfor- 
mance against the results we seek, not in com- 
parison with past achievements."

$500,000 Assures New Hospital 

Faced with the hard choice of 
closing Emerald-Hodgson Hospital, 
rebuilding the old structure to 
meet current state requirements, 
or building anew, the regents last 
summer authorized a new building 
if gifts and pledges amounting to 
$250,000 (one-fifth of the esti- 
mated cost) could be secured by 
November 1 from the patient area 
to be served. 

Chaired by the Rev. William A. 
Griffin of the School of Theology 
faculty, a local campaign evoked 
an astonishing outpouring of 
response from all segments of the 
community— faculty, staff, resi- 
dents, businesses, churches. The 
minimum goal was more than 
doubled, with the total standing at 
$505,679 on February 15, and gifts 
still coming in. 

The rest of the necessary funds 
will be borrowed through a bond 
issue with the hospital's earmarked 
endowment as collateral. A site 

across from the Sewanee Inn was 
chosen, and Gresham and Smith of 
Nashville engaged as architects.

Admissions Sfill in 
Holding Pattern 

Full-time college enrollment for 
the second semester is 962, one of 
the two largest second-semester 
student bodies in history. There 
are 198 students in the Academy, 
up one from the first semester, 
and 69 in the School of Theology, 
down one. 

Applications for next year in 
the College are down somewhat 
from last year's record total at this 
time, but ahead of every other 
year. Admissions director Albert 
Gooch sees neither cause for alarm 
nor lessened need for general 
efforts to encourage students to 
apply. He is pleased at the accept- 
ance of a projected third of next 
year's freshman class on the Early 
Decision plan, and declares them a 
group of alert, intelligent and 
interesting people with academic 
records equal to those of last 
year's good crop. 

Turn-Downs Questioned 

During the last year or two the 
college has been both happy and 
unhappy at having to turn away a 
number of well qualified appli- 
cants for lack of space. Happy 
because this is a problem of suc- 
cess. Unhappy because good 

friends were distressed at some of 
the turn-downs. Qualified appli- 
cants had to be denied when 
others considered more qualified 
by the admissions committee also 
applied. "'Qualified' means the 
total person and not simply grade 
point averages or any other single 
criterion," says Dean of the Col- 
lege Stephen E. Puckette, C'49, 
who is also chairman of the admis- 
sions committee. 

"We have always sought the 
students for whom Sewanee can 
do most," Puckette says. "This has 
to be to some extent a subjective 
judgment, and we make it as best 
we can. 

"Some alumni think we do not 
pay enough attention to Sewanee 
'legacies'— alumni offspring and 
grandoffspring. This is a factor 
that we weigh, and as a matter of 
fact 85 per cent of this group of 
applicants were admitted for this 
year while just over 50 per cent of 
all applicants were admitted. 

"I urge understanding from 
our alumni and friends, and^ con- 
tinued efforts to urge all possible 
candidates to apply. This remains 
crucial to the continuing effective- 
ness of the University of the 
South," Puckette exhorts. 


Anthropologist in Bishop's Common 

Margaret Mead 

The ordination of women is bound 
to come, anthropologist Margaret 
Mead said when cornered on this 
hot subject during her visit Oc- 
tober 29 as duPont Lecturer. 
"But," she declared with her char- 
acteristic forthrightness, "the pres- 
ent piece of nonsense is lament- 
able to the Nth degree. It would 
have been nice if they had waited, 
but nobody is willing to wait for 
anything any more." 

Dr. Mead's lecture in Guerry 
Hall, which was packed to rafters 
ringing with laughter and applause, 
was on the "Changing Roles of 
Males and Females." An informal 
question-and-answer session on the 
ordination question was held in 
the Bishop's Common lounge be- 
fore the evening lecture. Professor 
Mary Jo Wheeler-Smith's anthro- 
pology classes were there, joined 
by students from the School of 

The visitor commented on the 
composition of the group as signal- 
ing a change she had noticed in 
recent years in attitudes toward 
anthropology and religion, which 
formerly seemed antipathetic. 

Bringing to bear her research 
on sex roles in varying cultures 
which has occupied much of her 
professional career of nearly fifty 
years, she said women active in 
the current movements for recog- 
nition fall generally into two 
groups, those who want a return 
of autonomy in specifically female 
concerns like 'child-bearing (which 
Dr. Mead asserted had been taken 

over by male obstetricians as soon 
as there was money in it), and 
those who want what men have, 
including the priesthood. 

"In wanting to behave like 
men they are making a number of 
dubious assumptions," she said, 
"including the assumption that 
men have been doing it just fine." 
She said there are ideas behind 
the resistance to women's ordina- 
tion that everyone is dodging. One 
is the idea that women's reproduc- 
tivity is "unclean"— long illustrated 
in the Christian church by the 
practice of "churching" after 
childbirth. Women pushing for 
priesthood are wrong, she believes, 
in ignoring this background and 
regarding priesthood as just an- 
other profession, like law. 

The separation of women and 
their reproductivity from the sa- 
cred has been shared by half the 
human race for at least 50,000 
years, the anthropologist pointed 
out. "The other half thinks it's 
good and makes the grass grow." 
"You can have one position or 
the other, both of which endow 
female reproductivity with differ- 
ent attributes from maleness. Now 
this is a very serious issue. What if 
a priest becomes pregnant? Either 
a . pregnant priest is a priest that 
shares in something noble and 
wonderful or she is a contamina- 
ted polluted human being that you 
mustn't get near anything sacred 
or upset it. There are societies in 
which all you have to' do is to 
take a coconut and break it in 

half, name one for a man, one-half 
after his head and the other half 
after a woman's genitals and he 
drops dead, from this terrible 
bringing together of the horrible- 
ness of femaleness and the sacred- 
ness of his head. Many priests talk 
like this today and there are many 
discussions that have this general 

She suggested that women 
might explore their differences, 
whether based on genes (not 
proven), culture or their central 
experience of child-bearing, to 
make contributions distinctive 
from men "instead of trying to be 
a pale replica or a brawny replica" 
of a man. In the church, this 
might be listening. 

"Women have known through- 
out history that the other person 
is different, and they've had to 
know it because if they consulted 
their own stomachs before they 
fed the baby the baby would be 

Of course men can learn to 
listen, ur. Meaa conceded, "con- 
fessors learn to listen for very 
abbreviated amounts of time when 
they stand in the confessional box. 
Psychiatrists learn to listen for ' 
eight hours a day and come home 
and are unfit to live with. Any- 
thing either sex can do can be 
learned by the other, without any 
doubt. But the capacity to realize 
that another person is different 

and the capacity to listen to that 
other person has been called femi- 
nine intuition. Throughout history 
it has been a feminine attribute. 
We should make the most of it." 

Carter Heyward 

Spokesperson at Sewanee for 
women in the ministry was Ms. 
Carter Heyward, one of the eleven 
women whose ordination at Phila- 
delphia has been in dispute. Here 
at the invitation of a group of 
students in the College and of St. 
Andrew's school, Ms. Heyward 
made a forceful impression with 
her thesis that humanness over- 
rides maleness and femaleness, that 
"Sometimes righteous indignation 
is a higher virtue than patience," 
that "God is saying now," and 
that history shows this is the form 
change takes. "The Holy Spirit has 
a way of bursting in nut, of time," 
sne responded to the question 6t 
why they didn't wait. 

Chaplain Charles E. Kiblinger 
says, "Our college students are 
overwhelmingly conservative on 
this issue, but after they heard Ms. 
Heyward speak a number of them 
told me, 'Before I came here I was 
dead set against it. Now I feel 
differently or at least more 

Sewanee 's Theologians 

The United Press International 
wire service picked up 'from a 
School of Theology statement on 
the ordination hassle the note that 
the Bishops' committee headed by 
Bishop Arthur A. Vogel, C'46, 
"engaged in theological overkill." 

Behind the UPI story was a 
response to Bishop Vogel's Chi- 
cago resolution by four theolo- 
gians of the St. Luke's faculty, 
Dean Urban T. Holmes and Profes- 
sors John M. Gessell, Marion J. 
Hatchett and David H. Fisher. 
"This was done at the request of 
the Virginia Churchman," Dean 
Holmes says. "I was happy to do 
this because I believe it is part of 
the duty of a seminary to hold an 
ongoing dialogue in the life of the 
Church. Bishop Vogel, incidental- 
ly, is my close personal friend." 

These four were chosen be- 
cause they are in the field of 
theology, Hatchett in sacramental 
theology, Holmes in cultural theo- 

logy, Gessell in moral theology 
and Fisher in systematic theology. 
Their separate statements and dis- 
cussions were put together by 
David Fisher. 

Dean Holmes comments on the 
emerging points of view: "The 
Church always has to live in a 
tension between conserving struc- 
tures and listening to the pro- 
phetic voices within it. I would 
prefer that they [the women pres- 
sing for ordination] had waited, 
but what I am dealing with is the 
fact that they did not. And I 
think the Church has to take this 
into account. I am personally in 
favor of the ordination of women 
and I only regret that the situation 
is such that some felt it necessary 
to hit the Church between the 
eyes with a four-by-four. Perhaps 
in the long run history will judge 
them right: that this is what it 
took to get the Church off dead- 


The Rev. John M. Gessell was off 
to another Mountain, Kilimanjaro, 
and thereabouts for his sabbatical 
last semester. Funded in part by a 
University research grant, he trav- 
eled and asked questions in East 
Africa to get a first-hand sense of 
the emerging Third World. "I am 
convinced that this emergence is 
the single most critical event of 
the Twentieth Century, more criti- 
cal in its effects than the invention 
of atomic technology," he told the 
School of Theology students at 
one of their weekly lunches at the 
Bishop's Common. "It will have in 
the long run many unimaginable 
effects." He accompanied a physi- 
cian on leprosy control duty, talk- 
ed to church and government lead- 
ers and our embassy staff in Dar 
es Salaam, visited schools at all 
levels, government agencies and 
slums. "You find out about it 
only by being there," he said.

We had heard that Mrs. Snel-

we couldn't resist writing to ask 
her how she found time to write a

she has the degree, she doesn't

"Togetherness Called Key to Sewa- 
nee Cage Success" was how the 
Chattanooga Times headlined a 
sports-page story by Mike Brown 
January 21. 

"Eddie Krenson is a history 
major. Harry Hoffman is interested 
in oceanography, taking biology 
and chemistry," the feature begins. 
"John Sublett is working 
toward medicine. Tom Piggott and 
Doug Fifner are interested in 
studying law. 

"Peter Lemonds is a musician 
who plays the cello, being one of 
the best in Georgia. 

"These are some of the unself- 
ish, talented, intelligent players on 
a • once-beaten University of the 
South basketball team whose 
school, located on top of a moun- 
tain on a small, beautiful campus, 
does not give athletic scholarships. 
"These Tiger players, hoping 
to receive a bid to the first 
N.C.A.A. Division II Tournament, 
are team players. 'They all get 
along fine,' said coach Mac Petty. 
'Our inter-strength is tremen- 

With four games left to ,-'o, the 
record was 17-4. The four losses 
Were by a combined total of only 
seven points. Besides winning the 
Rose-Hulman Invitational Tourna- 
ment early in the season, the 
Tigers racked up some big wins, 
most notably an 81-68 swamping 
of Athletes in Action. This squad, 
composed of former college stars 
now on the road crusading for 
Christ, competes with many of the 
top-ranked schools in the country 
such as the N.C.A.A. defending 
champions, North Carolina State. 
The seniorless squad is led by 
Captain Harry Hoffman and Co- 
Captain Eddie Krenson, a pair of 
experienced junior forwards. The 
starting five is rounded out by 
junior John Sublett at center and 
junior Peter Lemonds and sopho- 
more Charlie Little as guards. Jun- 
ior Tom Piggott has proved invalu- 
able as a sixth man in being able 
to replace any of the five starters. 
Junior Doug Fifner and sopho- 
more Dickie McCarthy lend valu- 
able depth at both forward and 
guard. A welcome addition has 
been the play of Harry Cash, a 
freshman postman, who has shown 
great potential in his varsity stints. 
The club's .success has inspired 
a quiet confidence and optimism, 
especially buoyed by the possibili- 
ty of a post-season N.C.A.A. play- 
off berth. "Each successive day

list were Tucson, fourth; Northern 
Michigan fifth; Arizona State, Van-

Nelson Puett of Austin, Texas, 
Sewanee sophomore, finished fifth 
in the field of ninety skiers to lead 
his team, with Marshall Cassedy of 
Tallahassee number 14. 


The wrestling team opened its 
1974-75 season in Oxford, Missis-

both matches, beating Ole Miss

Women's Athletics 
After two years of exploratory 
and trial programs, women stu- 
dents have taken hold of several 
programs and are participating in 
them at real varsity level while 
continuing to explore other devel- 
oping sports being introduced on 

The sports that have reached 
varsity level for women this year 

Brad Berg, C76 

are field hockey, volleyball, 
gymnastics and tennis. The gym- 
nastics and tennis teams were just 
starting their competitive seasons 
last month. The tennis team looks 
especially strong this year, winning 
their opening match with Austin 
Peay January 24 by 8 to 1. 

The University has been cho- 
sen to host the first college 
women's state gymnastics meet. 
This is sponsored by the Tennessee 
College Women's Sports Federa- 
tion, which voted this year to 
include gymnastics in the sports it 
sponsors state-wide. There are nine 
colleges in the state with women's 
gymnastic teams. The meet is 
scheduled for March 7-8. 

The synchronized swim team 
will host a clinic and meet Mem- 
phis State University in competi- 
tion the first part of April with an 
A and a B team. The equestrian 
hunt team will compete again in 
the spring horse show to be held 
at the University Equestrian Cen- 

We now have a women's bas- 
ketball team booked to play six 
intercollegiate games this winter 
and which could grow into varsity 
status. In the physical education 
area, the two modern dance 
courses being offered by the new 
instructor, Virginia Blackstock, 
have been received with over- 
whelming enthusiasm. The liturgi- 
cal dance course is unique. Fenc- 
ing and intermediate tennis are 
also new courses receiving enthusi- 
astic participation.

Cross Country 

The cross country team completed 
one of its most successful seasons 
ever, despite the fact that they 
were up against some formidable 

opposition. In dual and triangular 
meet competition their record was 
2 and 1, with a loss to East 
Tennessee State University 
(N.C.A.A. champions in 1973) and 
wins over Vanderbilt and South- 
western. They also competed in 
several invitational meets during 
the course of the regular season 
including the T.I.A.C. (College 
Division, second place finish) and 
finished second in the College 
Ath\etic Conferenre against a 
tough Rose-Hulman team. The 
high point of the season .vas being 
able to take a full team to the 
N.C.A.A. championships in Whea- 
ton, Illinois. This was a first for 

Cross country is coached by 
Dr. Arthur Berryman, Sewanee 
physician. A missionary of run- 
ning, he has offered his services in 
starting the sport up in area high 
schools. "Anyone can run," he 
says, "and this is the least expen- 
sive sport available." 


With a small squad (ten swimmers 
and divers) and half the varsity 
new to competition, the swimminjj 
team has seen better days. As of 
January 28 the dual meet record 
was 1 win and 5 losses. However, 
morale was reported still high with 
the squad working twice as hard 
to make up for half the numbers 
They are looking forward to par- 
ticipating in the conference cham- 
pionships and hope to have three 
members make the cut-off times 
for Division III of the N.C.A.A. 
swimming championships March 
20-22 at Allegheny College in 
Meadville, Pennsylvania. Two of 
the hoped-for three had made it 
February 1. 

The team would like alumni to 
be on the lookout for competitive 
swimmers who are good students 
and will fit into the Sewanee 


Cook's Choice 

by Anne Cook 

Mrs. Cook is the wife of the Sewanee 
Academy's dean of students. A former 
newspaper woman, she works in Academy 
public relations with the University office. 

Four years have passed since the first Master- 
Students' term. Here is a summing up of this 
somewhat unstructured period, from where we 

During the first semester students and faculty 
make suggestions about subjects they would like 
to see offered in the Master-Students' term. If 
enough students are interested in a subject and a 
qualified adult leader is available, it becomes part 
of the curriculum for the two-week period im- 
mediately following Christmas vacation. 

Basic requirements are purposely kept at a 
minimum. A student is asked to spend at least six 
hours a day on his project. It is hoped that two 
hours of this will be physical and two hours, at 
least, mental. No grades are given on Master- 
Students work, but students must keep journals 
of their activities, and teachers' comments on 
each Individual's performance and attitude are a 
part of the record. 

This variety of mini-courses was instituted to 
broaden the school curriculum and expose stu- 
dents to valuable educational experience not 
available during the academic year. Quite often 
these courses have introduced a student to a new 
interest or hobby that can last a lifetime. For 
some seniors and students whose parents live 
abroad, it is off-campus education geared to their 
enrichment or experience in a career field of their 

This year the Academy had excellent reports 
back from the supervisors of these off-campus 
projects. In reading several of the student jour- 
nals, I discovered how totally engrossed these 
students become in describing their special pro- 
jects. Example: Harry Roberts, from Brownsville, 
Texas, arrived each morning at 7:30 a.m. at the 
Gladys Porter Zoo, a zoo dedicated to preserving 
the lives of endangered species. He helped to 
prepare diets for various birds. He cleaned the 
pens of the white rhinos (at one time there were 
fewer than ten of these beasts alive in the world). 
Bits from his journal are on this page. 

But for new students joining the school at 
mid-semester, this period of no regular routine 
can be quite difficult. To be sure, a student can 
profit from some of the courses offered. It can 
be a time for upgrading skills in typing, or speed 
reading. Math tutorials are offered for those 
needing help in that subject. Another excellent 
field of choice would be computer programming 
for beginners— no experience required. However, 
for the uninitiated, the wide spectrum of activity 
going on can be a bewildering experience. 

Possum Trot 

Another outgrowth of the interim term has 
been the conversion of the old boys' day room in 
Quintard into a booth-lined gathering place 
named the Possum Trot Club. It is a drop-in kind 
of room, and several of the girls are operating 

"Mom's," selling popcorn and cokes. The boys 
bring their stereos down for musical entertain- 
ment, and occasionally the group is treated to 
music, live, from the magic guitars of Bill Terry, 
physics instructor, and Jim Scott, chemistry. 
Nancy Russell, a student from New Smyrna 
Beach, Florida, has been a prime mover in the 
success of this endeavor. 

In conclusion, it is my opinion that the 
Master-Students venture into experiential educa- 
tion is a success for those students who are 

mature enough to stand the freedom. For the fl 
who view it as free time for messing around! 
two-week lark and ungraded at that, it's I 
personal loss. The student body as a whJ 
benefits from this Academy program. The divl 
sity of experience from the off-campus specl 
projects, the varied independent study pursued I 
campus, all contribute to and enrich the life I 
the student body. 

And for some of those whose journals reflJ 
that they did very little, there's still next year. I 


Excerpted from the Master-Students' Term jour- 
nal of Harry Roberts, Academy senior, at the 
Gladys Porter Zoo in Brownsville, Texas: 

....Making short trips to the indoor quarters of 
the animals is the way the rounds work. A 
check of almost all animals is made which 
occasionally includes giving medical attention to a 
few. I saw the Duoc Langars, four female 
primates, very rare, not open to the public. These 
four monkeys were being kept for future breed- 
ing potential. They were the most beautifully 
colored of all the animals at the zoo. I had seen 
pictures and read of them, tried to locate them 
on 1/16/75 while walking around the zoo, but 
never realized they were kept out of sight until 
today. It was a privilege to see them. I then was 
able to see four cubs of the feline family at the 
clinic, the zoo hospital. There was a small leopard 
and three others in a separate cage that I can not 
identify. I saw an old wallaby get a shot to aid 
its deteriorating body.... Docent lecture that 

....After Jerry (one of three curators) and I 
had made our rounds we went to the clinic where 
we met with Jim Oosterbuis, the zoo's private 
veterinarian, and prepared to anesthetize a female 
orangutan who has produced four offspring at the 
zoo which have been some of the very first to be 
born in captivity. With the orangutans still in 

their night quarters, a small "mountain on 
island," we put two planks side by side from t 
viewing area surrounding the island onto t 
island itself. Dr. Oosterbuis prepared 7.5 cc. 
Ketamine (approx. 5 milligrams per 1 lb. of bo 
weight) and loaded it into a dart, CO„ -power 
pistol. After the ape was shot we waited abc 
seven minutes, then loaded the now unconscio 
ape into the electric-powered cart and took 
back to the clinic where she was weighed at 1 
and then X-rayed. She was administered two T 
test injections, one in each eyelid, for it is oi 
there that the reaction may be noticed due to I 
absence of hair and the orangutan's common t 
pigment. The X-rays were of her chest area a 
were for tuberculosis scars or infection. Anotl 
injection was administered as a salivation inhi 
tor. Then we quickly reloaded her back into t 
cart and took her back. At this point she \' 
waking up and holding her still was difficult. It 
hard to grasp the strength of one of these a[ 
until you are next to it and can see that even 
small ape such as this has a forearm as long ai 
man's and as thick as a thigh. When we plac 
her back in the cage the other male orangutai 
three small males and one huge 300-lb. mi 
named Ching, who had seriously injured a curat 
at his former zoo, resumed spitting on us as th 
had done when we first arrived. 

The rest of the day was spent in the libra 


Winter sports got off to a late 
;art because of the post-season 
owl game played by the Tiger 
)otball squad, and the team 
cords in wrestling, basketball and 
jccer reflect the lack of those 
ucial extra weeks of practice, 
evertheless, at this writing, the 
ccer team will go on to the state 
urnament, wrestling posted its 
rst win in four years, and 
sketball games are so closely 
ught that the final score isn't 
own until the buzzer sounds the 
me's end. The girls' basketball 
am, in its first season at the 
cademy, is gaining poise and 
jperience with their eleven-game 


The team, ably coached by 
ark Tanksley,' had several 
turning wrestlers, but half were 
:st-year men. Several of these 
wcomers to the sport did 
ceptionally well. Robert Ellis, 
iss Russell and Jim Wayland 
owed an eagerness to learn and a 
rong desire and ability to win. As 
perienced wrestlers, Neal Brown, 

Bill Dyer, Mike Walton, Chip 
Carrier, James Wenzel, Vic Wolf 
and Bill Harrison improved 
tremendously, and their records 
reflect this. The team finished with 
a 2-6-1 record. 


In posting the 5-8 record with 
four more games left in the season, 
the team has been led in scoring by 
Ted Owen. A Sewanee boy, Ted has 
been a standout performer for three 
years on the Varsity. This year he is 
averaging some fifteen points per 
game and helps considerably on the 
offensive backboard. 

The leading rebounder is 
high-leaping John Patton. John, a 
junior, is also a Sewanee native. He 
is pulling down an average of ten 
rebounds per game and blocking 
several shots. His jumping ability 
surpasses all opponents we have 
faced and when he is hot, his shot is 
impossible to block. 

Ernie Sibley, another junior, is 
the play-maker for the Tigers. His 
ball handling and defensive play are 
important factors in the overall 
success of the team. He is probably 



the quickest man on the team and 
is the calming influence whenever 
the going is a little rough. Ernie also 
has tremendous leaping ability and 
ranks high in rebounding. 

Well coached by Tim Turpen, 
the squad has fine ability. Turpen. 
hopes that the team will perform 
well for the remainder of the season 
by playing a more polished style of 


This year's team has dominated 
all of the important statistics in five 
of its games, and in the other four 
has excelled in all but the most 
important one: the final score. The 
main reason that the Academy has 
a 5-3-1 record instead of a 9-0, 
according to their dedicated coach, 
Phil White, is due to the switch 
away from daylight saving time. 
This shortened practice time so as 
to exclude sufficient shooting 

In the opening game against 
CM. A., the Academy controlled 
the ball over 80 per cent of the 
match, but won only a 3-1 victory. 
In the next match against 
high-rated Castle Heights, Academy 
strikers took 20 shots to Castle 
Heights' 12— but lost 1-0. In the 
match against T.M.I., the Academy 
again took 20 shots, but only 
scored twice. Fortunately, rookie 
fullbacks Peyton Cook, David Cook 
and David Bartholomew, all ably 
directed by veteran goalie Terry 
Harris, held T.M.I, scoreless. In the 
second attempt against Heights, the 
Academy was able to get only three 
of its twenty-five shots into the net. 
In contrast, Heights was able to get 
three scores for twelve attempts — all 
picture book shots. 

The Academy's biggest jolt this 
season, however, was their 2-1 loss 
to arch-rival St. Andrew's on Janu- 
ary 28. In that game Sewanee shot 
a school record of forty-four 
shots. The team's inability to 
make more than one shot count 
can be explained partially by the 
excessive tension that replaced the 
overconfidence with which the 
Academy began the game, and 
partially by the sterling defensive 
performance of the St. A. full- 
backs, and a first-rate goalie. 

The Academy, fully recovered 
bv their next same (in which thev 

set a new record of 48 shots) 
humiliated CM. A. with a 6-0 vic- 
tory. The next Saturday, however, 
a tired Academy team, playing its 
fourth game in eight days, itself 
suffered a 3-1 loss to a Ryan 
powerhouse. Yet the Academy 
outshot Ryan 29 to 20. By the 
next Tuesday, the team had rested 
enough to set still another record 
for shots attempted: 49. Of these 
shots, 34 were stopped by T.M.I.'s 
lightning-quick goalie, and seven 
shots were stopped by the huge 
mud-bath in front of the goal- 
inches before they rolled across 
the line. Score: 2-1. Clearly, how- 
ever, the team's unusual ability 
was materializing, and two days 
later, in snow and mud, the Tigers 
got the psychological impetus that 
they needed before they could 
realize their full potential: a 2-0 
shut-out. of St. Andrew's. 

With only two more season 
games remaining (against M.B.A. 
and Webb), the Academy is virtu- 
ally assured of a spot in the 
Tennessee Soccer Coaches' Asso- 
ciation Tournament at Covenant 
College (Lookout Mountain) Feb- 
ruary 20, 21, and 22. Between 
now and then, drills focusing on 
ball control and play-making will 
be largely suspended in favor of 
shooting drills at practice. If the 
result is a fair increase in shooting 
accuracy, and if halfbacks Archie 
Baker, Thomas Arnold, and David 
Suellau keep bringing the ball 
down to our wings, Rob Dower 
and Johnson Hagood, who have 
done a superb job of setting up 
insides Andy Jenkin and James 
Stephens all season— our booters 
just might be the first Academy 
team to win a state tournament. 

Girls' Basketball 

This is the first year for a 
women's TSSAA basketball team 
at the Academy. Coached by Jerry 
White, twenty-two girls signed up 
to play. Losses to date have not 
dimmed the team's spirit or deter- 
mination. Their closest game, with 
Columbia Military Academy, went 
into an overtime, but the Acad- 
emy lost 37-41. The girls' final 
two games are with Marion Coun- 
ty and St. Andrew's— providing for 
more evenly matched competition.

One of the more exciting things that people 
like to do in Sewanee is to go exploring caves. 
There are lots and lots of caves all around the 
side of the mountain, and every weekend groups 
of students go off on little "spelunking" parties. 
They wear stout hiking boots and carry flash- 
lights and pieces of rope and picnic lunches, and 
they usually have a wonderful time poking 
around in the dank recesses of a strange cave. 
Hardly anybody ever gets lost, but sometimes 
they are a bit late getting home and then a search 
party goes out to look for them. Usually the 
Vice-Chancellor leads it because he is the best 
spelunker* in Sewanee and he knows all the caves 
on the mountain like the back of his hand. No 
one has ever been lost for very long after the 
Vice-Chancellor started looking. 

Probably the second-best spelunker in Se- 
wanee is the Vice-Chancellor's granddaughter 
because she always goes with him. She has never 
been lost, except for one time when everybody 
who heard the story agreed that undoubtedly the 
Witch of Shakerag Hollow was to blame for the 
whole affair. 

It started one sunny Saturday morning when 
the Vice-Chancellor's granddaughter announced at 
breakfast that she was going to spend the day 
caving with her friend, Robert, who was a pretty 
good spelunker too. Robert was the youngest son 
of the History Professor and he lived just down 
the street. He and the Vice-Chancellor's grand- 
daughter had been friends for a long time. 

"You must take care not to get lost," warned 
the Vice-Chancellor's wife. She wasn't very fond 
of going into dark, musty old caves herself. 

"Sally won't get lost," mumbled the Vice- 
Chancellor as he dipped into the marmalade jar. 
"She knows the mountain as well as I do." 

The Vice-Chancellor's wife had to admit that 
Sally had never been lost yet but she still felt a 
bit uneasy. 

"1 wish you could go with them," she said to 
her husband. "It would do you good to get away 
from the office for awhile." 

Sally thought that, was a wonderful idea 
because her grandfather was lots of fun when 
they went caving together. 

"You know I can't do that," replied the 
Vice-Chancellor crossly. "I've got piles and piles 
of bills to pay and that means I've got to write a 
lot of letters asking for money. There never 
seems to be enough to make ends meet at this 
university and if we don't get a shower of gold 
from somewhere, we may have to close Se- 

And with that outburst, the outdone V.C. 
plopped down his morning newspaper and left 
the table to go to his office. Sally had never 
heard her grandfather speak like that before and 
it amazed her. Whatever his troubles were, they 
must be big ones! She only wished she could do 
something to help. The thought of closing Sewa- 
nee made her feel perfectly miserable. 

She didn't have time to think about it for 

. long however. Robert came to collect her, and 

they set off with the delicious picnic lunch her 

*This was written during the Vice-Chancellorship 
of Dr. Edward McCrady so that this statement, 
like the rest of the story, has ample documenta- 

grandmother had packed for them. In a very 
short time they were on the edge of the plateau 
and headed down into the jungle-like growth that 
covers the side of the mountain. They passed up 
the first cave they came to because they knew it 
well. It had a wide opening and looked as though 
it would be a good cave to explore, but it wasn't 
very deep at all. 

Suddenly Sally looked up and pointed in 
astonishment to another cave on the slope of 
Rattlesnake Ridge. 

"Look," she cried out. "I've never seen that 
cave before, have you?" 

Robert looked in amazement too. He had 
passed by this same spot many times before but 
had never noticed that cave. 

"Let's go see it," he said, and they quickly 
climbed the 1 hill to look inside the dark opening 
of the mysterious cave. There were a lot of 
boulders strewn around the entrance and Robert 
suggested that a rock slide must have cleared the 
entrance to the cave. 

"Won't your grandfather be excited when he 
sees this!" he exclaimed as they stepped inside 
the yawning cavern. 

"He sure will be excited," agreed Sally. "It 
might even take his mind off all those wretched 
bills. He said at breakfast this morning that they 
may have to close Sewanee." 

"Close what?" asked Robert in astonishment. 
"Close Sewanee!" repeated the Vice-Chancellor's 

With that, there was a sudden rumbling noise, 
and the whole cave rocked around them. The 
entrance to the cave filled up with boulders and 
the two children could see that they were 

"There's been another rock slide," exclaimed 
Robert. "What do we do now?" 

"I guess we had better see if there's a way 
out the back." 

Sometimes a cave will carry on through 
several chambers and eventually lead on to a 
smaller opening higher up the hill. It didn't take 
Sally and Robert long with their carbide lamps to 
find that this was a vain hope. The cave had two 
other chambers, each smaller than the one before 
it. Then it .stopped. 

"I guess we'd better go back to the first 
one," said Sally. "Maybe my grandfather will find 
us." Neither of them liked to admit that since 
the Vice-Chancellor didn't know of the existence 
of the cave, he wouldn't look for them there. 

As they came back into the entrance chanber, 
Robert heard a rattling noise and suddenly jerked 
Sally back. He swung the beam of his flashlight 
around in the dark, looking for the rattlesnake 
which had issued its warning and was now poised 
to strike. Both of them knew that snakes rarely 
enter caves, but here certainly was the sound of 

"There!" cried Sally, pointing to an enormous 
snake coiled in a corner near them. They picked 
up rocks to throw at It, when suddenly the snake 
rattled again, as if to get their attention, and 
spoke to them. 

"Good day, young masters," it hissed polite- 
ly. "What can I do for you today?" 

Robert rubbed his eyes to make sure he 
wasn't dreaming, but Sally was the practical one 
of the two. If the snake offered his help, they 
might as well take it. 

"Can you show us how to get out of here, 
please?" she asked. 

Drawings by the autl 

Marcia Hollis came to Sewanee in the 
summers of 1966 and 1967 from Canada with 
her husband and their three children while he 
was in attendance at the Graduate School of 
Theology. She promptly became Sewanee's 
latest supernaturalist, reporting to the 
children a hitherto unchronicled pantheon 
of its ghosts and witches. 

Other children, and an untotaled number 
of sneaky adults, became privileged to eaves- 
drop when the University of the South Press 
gathered the stories into a book called The 
Witch of Shakerag Hollow. "The Sewanee 
Cave Mystery " is from that collection. 

Mrs. Hollis was born in Montgomery, 
Alabama, and grew up in Montreal. She grad- 
uated from McGill University in 1958. Her 
first book, Down to Earth, was published by 
Seabury Press in March 1972 and became a 
selection of the Christian Herald Family 

Her husband, the Rt. Rev. Reginald Holli 
is bishop of Montreal. 

"Alas, no," sighed the snake sadly. "You 
alone have the magic password or you could not 
be here. All I can do is bring you the treasures of 
the cave." 

"Treasures!" exclaimed Robert and Sally to- 
gether .» "What kind of treasures?" 

"Mostly gold and silver," said the snake. 
"With a few diamonds." 

"Then bring us some of everything," replied 
Sally, forgetting for the moment that it wouldn't 
be any use to them if they couldn't get out. 

The snake obligingly went slithering off into a 
narrow crevice of the cave and after what seemed 
a long time, he came back with a shiny new gold 
piece in his mouth. He dropped it at Sally's feet 
and started off again for more. 

The two children settled down for a long 
wait. They passed the time by eating their lunch 
and timing the snake. It took about fifteen 
minutes for him to get each gold piece, and the 
pile grew very slowly. 

"We should have asked for diamonds," said 
Robert. "They're worth more." 

The next time the snake appeared, they asked 
him to find a nice diamond. Apparently this 
upset his routine or else the diamonds were a lot 
further away, because it took him nearly two 
hours to get it. They had begun to fear that he 
had deserted them when he finally appeared with 
a rattle of his tail and dropped a beautiful 
sparkling diamond at their feet. Sally was so 
delighted that she tossed the snake the last 
remaining piece of the sandwich. 

Meanwhile the day had passed, supper-time 
had come and gone, and even the Vice-Chancellor 
was getting worried about his granddaughter and 
her friend. He and Robert's father set out with a 
few students to look for the missing children. But 
not a trace of Sally and Robert could they find. 

It wasn't like the Vice-Chancellor to give up, 
but by the next morning, he was good and 
worried. Sally knew the mountain as well as he 
did, and if she had got lost, then something 
pretty strange must have taken place. The Vice- 
Chancellor had learned a long time ago that when 
strange things happened around Sewanee, there 
was usually one person who ought to be con- 
sulted. So without saying anything to anybody, 
he left the search party and went off to see the 
Witch of Shakerag Hollow. 

The Witch guessed right away that the two 
children had found her secret treasure cave. She 
didn't remember leaving it open, but she had 
been in a hurry the last time she was there. 

"Get all your men off the mountain," she 
said to the Vice-Chancellor. "I need absolute 
privacy to do my work." And then she got on 
her broom-stick and flew around supervising 
while the Vice-Chancellor hunted up all the 

When she was sure that nobody else was 
around to see what she was doing, the Witch flew 
down and landed at a spot not far from the cave. 
She marched up to a pile of big boulders and 
called out in a ringing tone: OPEN SEWANEE! 
And all of a sudden, there was a great rumbling 
noise and the ground shook and the big boulders 
rolled back to reveal the entrance of a cave. 

Sally and Robert, terrified of another rock 
slide, were amazed to see the cave mouth opening 
wide with the Witch of Shakerag Hollow standing 
in the entrance. 

"Be off with you!" she cried out in a cross 
and crackling voice. "The whole town has been 
out combing the mountainside for you naughty 
children." And she swept them along with her 
broom as if they had been little bits of dust. 
Stumbling out into the daylight, they ran as fast 
as they could up the side of the hill towards 
home. The Witch cackled as she watched them 
go, and when they were finally out of sight, she 
set about protecting her treasure cave. Only Sally, 
whose hearing was especially sharp, heard the 
faint echo of the Witch calling: CLOSE SE- 

Fortunately the children had already pocket- 
ed all their treasures— the gold and silver and 
diamonds— before the Witch came to release 
them. It made a pretty heavy load and they had 
to stop more than once for a rest. 'Sally could 
hardly wait to tell her grandfather about the 
treasure cave. It would solve all his worries about 
keeping the university open. 

The Vice-Chancellor was so glad to see them 
come back ,in one piece that he didn't really hear 
what they said at first. Then he looked sternly at 
his granddaughter and said the money didn't 
belong to her. 

"It belongs to the Witch of Shakerag Hol- 
low," he said, "and it will all have to go back 

That night when the moon was full, the 
Vice-Chancellor took Sally and Robert and all the 
gold and silver ' and diamonds to the edge of 
Shakerag Hollow where the Witch's little cabin 
sits in a circle of strange white light. The 
Vice-Chancellor thanked the Witch for her help as 
he returned the treasure, and then the children 
said they were sorry and explained how much the 
university needed money and that they didn't 
take it for themselves. 

. "I see," said the Witch, thoughtfully rubbing 
one finger along her crooked nose. "Then I think 
I can help." She got out her cookbook and she 
mixed up a spell that she cast over the whole 

"From now on," said the Witch of Shakerag 
Hollow, "anybody who gives money to this 
university will have a year of good luck." 

"What happens when the year is over?" asked 
the Vice-Chancellor's granddaughter. 

"They'll just have to give some more 
money!" said the Witch with a cackle. 

And that is what happened. The Vice-Chan- 
cellor never had to groan over his bills again 
because people were so eager to get their year's 
good luck. Donations of money came pouring 
into the university office and they were able to 
build new libraries and lecture halls and resi- 

People got to know the story of the treasure 
cave too because Robert wasn't very good at 
holding his tongue. Some of them even went out 
to look for it but all it ever got them was sore 
feet and a hoarse throat. The Witch has her cave 
too well protected now. Still they keep on trying 
when they think nobody is around. You can 
sometimes hear them on a clear night, calling 
eerie sound in the moonlight. ^

Informality was the note for At- 
lanta's always well-attended func- 
tion held this year at Swain's 
Charcoal Steak House on Novem- 
ber 8. Athletic director Walter 
Bryant, Jr., C'49, gave his views 
on Sewanee's athletic program and 
predicted that the final results of 
Sewanee's team efforts would be a 
very good showing. Dr. Bennett 
was the main speaker. 

The Carolinas 

A round of North and South 
Carolina annual club activity began 
when Dr. J. Jefferson Bennett, 
Vice-Chancellor, flew to Charlotte 
November 12 to address the Sewa- 
nee Club at a barbecue buffet 
supper and meeting. The next 
evening the Vice-Chancellor spoke 
to the Sewanee Club of the Pee 
Dee in Florence. The gathering 
included more clergy, including 
Bishop Gray Temple, H'61, than 
have been seen recently at a club 
meeting. Presiding at the Florence 
Country Club on November 13 
was Haigh Porter, C'58. 


Dr. Charles Binnicker, C'51, dean 
of students and classics professor, 
spoke to the Sewanee Club of 
Jacksonville on November 14. Joe 
Arnall, A'65, C'69, was elected 
president of the club. At a lunch- 
eon meeting of alumni leaders, 
which was inspired by the Rev. 
Gladstone Rogers, C'24, T'27, and 
called by the new president, the 
Sewanee Club of Jacksonville 
pledged renewed vigor in support 
for Sewanee's most pressing needs. 
Fruition was found in an area 
organization MDP thrust with Joe 
Arnall as chairman. 


Also on November 14, the Sewa- 
nee Club of Houston, with about a 
hundred persons present, met at 
the River Oaks Country Club to 
hear a report from the Mountain 

by Vice-Chancellor Bennett, who 
introduced development vice-presi- 
dent William Whipple. 


First prize for innovative club 
gatherings should go to Birming- 
ham for their lively affair at the 
Botanical Gardens on November 
19. In center focus was Mary Sue 
Cushman, dean of women, who 
spoke about the role of women at 
Sewanee, and then introduced a 
Woman student from each class. A 
jocular question-and-answer session 
followed which proved that the 
women could hold their own 
against the old-line chauvinists. All 
was the inspiration of club presi- 
dent Warren Belser, C'50. 


Annual hallmark of Pensacola's 
gathering each year is the presence 
of lay leadership from area Episco- 
pal parishes. Some seventy-five 
such fellow churchmen, alumni, 
and friends were brought together 
by the club president, Jim Moody, 
C'42, and the Rev. Van Davis, 
C'49, at St. Christopher's Church 
on November 24. Popular speaker 
Dr. W. T. Cocke, C'51, associate 
professor of English, gave an ac- 
count of happenings on the Moun- 
tain and cited Pensacola for its 
consistent and high level of 


Again this year on the Sunday 
before New Year's, Mr. and Mrs. 
Dudley Fort, C'34, were host to 
Sewanee alumni, friends, students, 
prospects and parents. Into the 
lovely setting of the Forts' home 
for this year's tea came some 125 
guests, with admissions director Al 
Gooch being pleased with the large 
number and high quality of pros- 
pective students. Those from the 
Mountain expressed thanks to 
Uncle Dudley and Miss Pearl for 
the privilege of being present and 
for the good which comes to 
Sewanee each year through their 
generosity. New president of the 
Nashville Sewanee Club is Thomas 
Black, C'58. 

Columbia and Coast 

Kirk Finlay, C'58, was host to the 
Sewanee Club of Columbia at his 
handsome contemporary home on 
January 10. Speaker at the large 
but informal gathering was Dr. 
Gilbert F. Gilchrist, C'49. Joel 

(Jody) Smith III, C'67, is new 
president of the Sewanee Club and 
responsible for its vitality and 
reorganization. The theme was the 
same, with equally good attend- 
ance and Dr. Gilchrist speaking, at 
the gathering of the Coastal Caro- 
lina Club at the Blacklock House, 
a magnificent old mansion owned 
by the College of Charleston. 
Wheeler Tillman, C'63, state legis- 
lator from Charleston County, suc- 
ceeds Bobby Hood, C'66, as club 


W. Michaux Nash, C'26, president 
of the Associated Alumni from 
1955 to 1957, was honored for his 
many years of loyal and devoted 
service by the Sewanee Club of 
Dallas at the Royal Coach Inn on 
February 13. A large gathering of 
alumni, friends, and relatives, in- 
cluding his brothers Edward, C'31, 
and Robert, C'27, and his son 
Michaux, Jr., A'52, came from far 
and near for the spirited occasion. 
Representing Sewanee was Mr. 
Nash's friend of many years, Dr. 
Robert S. Lancaster, C'34, who 
brought official greetings from the 
Mountain and read words of praise 
from the Vice-Chancellor. The 
club presented Mr. Nash with a 
snow scene taken from the road 
which begins at the Academy and 
rises and dips all the way to the 
Cross at the end. James Edmond- 
son, A'51, is president of the club. 

Alumni Council 

Nationally syndicated columnist 
Smith Hempstone, Jr., C'50, was 
scheduled to be speaker at the 
Friday evening banquet of the 
Alumni Council weekend, March 
7-8. O. Morgan Hall, C'39, was to 
present the Hall Trophy to the 
outstanding class for participation 
in the alumni fund for the Million 
Dollar Program. 

Workshops planned to prepare 
direction for the new thrust in 
alumni leadership at the regional 
level in MDP was worked out with 
new vice-president for develop- 
ment William Whipple and execu- 
tive director John Bratton in co- 
ODeration with alumni president B. 
Humphreys McGee, A'42, C'49. 
While much discussion and plan- 
ning for a continued class effort 
was anticipated, the alumni leaders 
agreed that the new enthusiasm 
created by area organization would 
be the key to successful alumni 
participation in the Million Dollar 

Board of Governors 

Marshall Walter, A'58, president of 
Sewanee Academy Alumni, has 
called for the Academy board of 
governors to meet in Sewanee on 
April 25-26. The alumni policy 
board meets twice each year, once 
for the annual meeting of Acad- 
emy Alumni and again in a work- 
ing session six months later. 
Theme of the forthcoming meeting 
will be "harnessing alumni sup- 

Alumni Career Counseling— 

Four alumni in the field of medi- 
cine came to the Mountain Feb- 
ruary 27-28 to consult with stu- 
dents about their future careers. 
Present for the informal sessions 
were Dr. William Stoney, C'50, 
heart surgeon from Nashville; Dr. 
Fred Converse, C'45, psychiatrist 
from Maryland; Miss Linda Mayes, 
C'74, student at Vanderbilt in 
Nashville; Dr. Edward Peebles, 
C'49, administrator at Tulane, 
New Orleans. 

Alumni who would like to 
participate in future career coun- 
seling sessions are requested to 
make their willingness known so 
that our students may have the 
benefits of their expertise at a 
future session. 

Alumni Career Counseling— 

Five prominent businessmen, all in 
different fields of commerce and 
manufacturing, came to the Moun- 
tain for a meeting with the Eco- 
nomics Club and combined the 
trip with career counseling. Head- 
ed by Ben Donnell, C'39, Valley 
Minerals Product Company, St. 
Louis, who is chairman of the 
alumni business and professional 
liaison committee, the team of 
counselors included Peterson 
Cavert, C'67, First Mortgage Com- 
pany, Inc., Tuscaloosa-, Paul J. 
Greeley, C'54, Keeler Brothers 
Company, Indianapolis; and Henry 
W. Lodge, C'72, Lodge Manufac- 
turing Company, South Pittsburg. 

Lively St. Luke's Day 

Alumni returning for St. Luke's 
Day last fall, as well as current 
students and faculty, were capti- 
vated by Father Herbert Ryan, 

S.J., the DuBose Lecturer. Father 
Ryan is an associate professor of 
historical theology at Loyola 
Marymount University in Los 
Angeles. An active leader in com- 
munication between the Episcopal 
and Roman Catholic churches, he 
sailed his points on waves of 
laughter as he used his knowledge 
of seven languages to slip into 
assorted dialects.

Dr. Buck Remembered 

January 13, 1975 
My motivation for writing you at this 
time stems from the sorrowful news of 
Dr. Stratton Buck's death, which has 
turned my thoughts of late to my student 
days on the Mountain. I was his first 
French major after he came to Sewanee 
during the early days of World War II, 
and out of it grew a friendship which has 
lasted a lifetime. 

The French department had fallen 
upon evil times in those days. One pro- 
fessor was called by the Navy, the other 
by the Army, and Abbo, of all people, 
was borrowed from the realms of gold to 
staff the French Department until a 
replacement could be found. Not that 
Abbo wasn't just as interesting and well 
versed in French romanticism as in his 
more familiar field, but the department 
needed a permanent and more steadying 
hand. In Dr. Buck the University found 
just the man, and I my mentor and life- 
long friend.

To Walter Bryant, 

Director of Athletics 
I have received a copy of the December 
Sewanee News and read the article on 
Shirley Majors' honor. 

In addition to my congratulations to 
Coach Majors for an honor well-earned 
and well-deserved, as a former director of 
athletics I would have to congratulate 
you on finding and keeping such a person 

But most particularly I would con- 
gratulate the writer of the article, Doug 
Paschall. While I'm sure the subject made 
it easier, the article is written with such 
sensitivity, clarity, and style that I 
couldn't help but be as impressed with 
the writer as with the subject. I have read 
it for the fourth time over three days, and 
I am still impressed and appreciative as I 
was the first time. Finally, what a tribute 
to small college football it turned out to 
be as well as a tribute to his former

Parents and People: 

Hardee Field, the football stadium at the 
University of the South, is the most 
scenic gridiron the Opinionater has seen. 
It is surrounded by trees that rise to form 
a backdrop for the stands and when these 
trees display their autumn colors the view 
across the green {real grass) field of play 
can actually distract the spectator from 
the bruising sport being played. Hardee 
Field is sometimes called "The Fog 
Bowl" but there are always a few week- 
ends each fall when the sun is brilliant 
and the leaves glorious. It is indicative of 
the place reserved for parents at Sewanee 
that the University programmer turns to 
the almanac and chooses beautiful 
weather for the annual "Parents' Week- 
end." The University football team, 
which once had the longest losing streak 
in college athletics, almost always obliges 
by posting a win on Parents' Weekend. 

Moms and Dads also attend classes, 
eat hamburgers on the campus lawn while 
they listen to the sixty-bell carillon and 
end the day sipping refreshments with 
their offspring in a pub that must have 
been designed by some London brewer. 
Climax of the program is a celebration of 
Holy Communion in the gothic Uni- 
versity chape) when a choir of one hun- 
dred voices fills the galleries with 
resonant sound. 

Last weekend, everything at Sewanee 
was just as the planners wanted it to be: 
the foliage was beautiful, the team was 

victorious, the teachers were cordial, the 
parents were jovial, the chaplain pro- 
duced an excellent sermon, and the 
natives were friendly, courteous and kind. 
We bring you this report in the event that 
you have a daughter or son who wants to 
attend our first-rate Episcopal college. In 
our opinion, you will be wise to let them 
enroll, but, all wisdom aside, you will 
really enjoy being elevated to the ranks of 
people who matter by other people who

Dr. Henry Lumpkin, C'36, professor of history at

number of articles for Sandlapper, the magazine

ing reminiscence of his mother, called "The Lady 
and the Moose," in the December 1973 issue. 
During the period (1914-19) when his father was 
rector of St. Matthew's Church in Fairbanks and 
a downriver mission had run out of meat, a 
young moose turned up near the rectory and the 
lady, with her husband off on a fruitless hunting 
trip, shot it. She had never before fired a rifle 
but it seemed indubitably the thing to do, and 
she could not understand the fuss it evoked.

In the New York Times of January 21 an 
editorial by William V. Shannon called "The

have been a member of Congress, the House has 
revealed itself to me as ineffective in its role as a 
coordinate branch of the Federal Government, 
negative in its approach to national tasks, gen- 
erally unresponsive to any but parochial 
economics interests. Its procedures, time- 
consuming and unwieldy, mask anonymous 
centers of irresponsible powers. Its legislation is 
often a travesty of what the national welfare 
requires. '

The 24-Hour 

Much of education has noth- 
ing to do with courses and 
classrooms. After classes 
and after dinner in a Board- 
ing School, students and 
teachers are in studios, labs, 
lounges, athletic activities — 
on and off campus. 
When students attend local 
schools, their fellow stu- 
dents are from the same 
town, and often have simi- 
lar viewpoints. Only in 
Boarding Schools do they 
learn with students from 
often more than 30 states 
and many foreign countries. 
Somehow, sometime, a girl 
or a boy has to leave home to 
find out who she or he is. 
Sometimes college is time 
enough, but not always. The 
time to invest in education is 
when the need is obvious. A 
24-hour school is simply 
more in every way. 
This attractive alternate in 
education is found Only in 
Boarding Schools. It 
might just be your best 
choice — as a student, as a

Chairman of the Million Dollar Program 

An address to the board of trustees, 
April 19, 1975 

There" are two things I want to share with you 
this morning. 

You are probably aware now of my special 
concern for Sewanee and world relief during 
these next twelve months. 

The first six weeks of my new full-time 
vocation have taken me as far as Honduras with 
my world relief work and into several of our 
larger cities in work for Sewanee. 

I would like first to share with you my 
efforts for Sewanee the past ten days and then I 
would like to respond to the many questions that 
have been asked me concerning what led me to 
the commitment I have made. 

These past ten days have been exciting! I told 
my wife Pat the day before I left for Atlanta 
Monday that I was having as much fun asking for 
large gifts for Sewanee as I have had the past 
twenty-five years putting together important deals 
in the investment banking world. The chief 
reason, I believe, for the great joy I have felt has 
been an intense sense of the Lord's presence in 
my work and the blessings He has bestowed upon 
this University through this work. 

Ten days ago just prior to my trip to Atlanta 
and Nashville I visited Houston for the purpose 
of calling on the parents of one of our senior 
students to ask for a major gift. Before I even 
had time to make the request they were busy 
telling me how much the University had meant to 
their son, and that they would like to make a gift 
of $125,000 to Sewanee. This was the major 
challenge gift we had been looking for and the 
beginning of a series of exciting visits in Atlanta 
and Nashville the past several days. In Atlanta 
one Episcopalian gentleman with no Sewanee ties 
is considering a gift of $10,000, while in Nash- 
ville the next day two Episcopalian ladies who 
believe tremendously in what Sewanee stands for 
gave $10,000 each. They had never really been 
solicited before. The same day a banker pledged 
$5,000 from his bank and $1,000 himself. You 
can see why I am finding this work so rewarding. 

The strength the Lord has given me on these 
visits has been unbelievable. The strength He gave 
me when I asked for it when I was considering 
leaving my job for twelve months has been 
followed by more strength day in, day out. 

I would like to share with you now a little of 
how I reached this decision. It is deep-rooted 
within me, and it stemmed from my experience 
as a student at Sewanee. 

In the spring of 1963 when the $10,000,000 
campaign was getting off to a rather slow start 
some twenty of us were called together in 
Chattanooga for a meeting with Cecil Woods, our 
campaign chairman, to discuss the progress of the 
campaign and to help stimulate the work. 

I Prayed for My Banker 

That night before retiring I earnestly prayed 
that I would be guided to make the right 
financial commitment to the University that had 
meant so much to me. Moments later I was so 
startled by a desire to do something very major 
(for me) financially that I picked up the phone 
and called my wife to share my thoughts and 
find reassurance. Her words were, "Bob, do what 
you think you should." The next day I made a 
pledge to Sewanee which represented forty per 
cent of my net worth including my house and 
automobile. Prayer was a new experience for me 
and, as untrusting as I was at that time, I 
remember the next night praying especially for 
my banker that he would provide the funds if I 
could not. 

This was my first major financial commitment 
to my Lord's work. Money meant much to me in 
those days. 

From that moment forward my life was 
different, as I began to know the meaning of 
stewardship. It was the commitment to Sewanee 
that changed it and I am forever grateful for it. 

Some two years ago I had been earnestly 
praying that God would open for me some new 
doors of service for Him. I was asked along with 
twenty-five or thirty other business and profes- 
sional men to a luncheon in San Antonio to hear 
a world-renowned missionary doctor, Dr. Robert 
Hingson. Dr. Hingson was bom in the rural area 
of Alabama, worked his way through medical 
school there and went on to the Mayo Clinic. He 
has been a Johns Hopkins professor and has all 
the greatly desired medical credentials. 

This man was now giving his entire life to his 
Lord by working in the poorest areas of the 
world stamping out disease and suffering in its 
darkest comers through a mass immunization 
technique he had personally developed. With the 
use of the jet gun he had worked out he could 
inoculate as many as 10,000 people in a few 
hours with a small volunteer team of doctors. 

When I left the meeting and started back to 
my office I had a strong urge to return to Dr. 

You Mean So Much 

Hingson As he was preparing to leave I intro- everything seemed to come together. She and I 

duced myself, gave him my card and said that I discussed the fact that the Lord had blessed us 

would like to help him in his work. I returned to generously the past two years. Through a merger

Hingson called me, reminding me of our visit and an otherwise declining stock market. And I had 

my indicated interest in helping him. I confirmed been blessed by a most supporting family 

to him again this interest and he then asked if I 

would accompany him in two weeks on a mercy 

mission to the Republic of Niger at my own 

expense. This is the area of the great drouth 

where thousands have been dying of starvation 

and disease. We took with us urgently needed 

medical equipment and 50,000 doses of measles 

vaccine for the refugee camps where hundreds of 

children were dying nightly from the disease. 

Here in West Central Africa was a country the 

size of Texas and California combined with 4.5 

Now it was my turn again to take another 
step in faith for Him. As big a step as this was 
for me it was no larger than the one I took 
twelve years ago, and what a joy that had 
brought to my life! 

We Have Been Chosen 

This decision was inspired by one Vice- 
Chancellor and the alumnus son of another 
Vice-Chancellor of this institution.

$125,000 Pledge Fans Hope

Mr. and Mrs. John J. Mo 

A lead pledge of $125,000 to the 
Million Dollar Program from Mr. 
and Mrs. John J. Moran of Hous- 
ton has fanned kindling hopes that 
the goal will be reached, against 
the odds of the wettest-blanket 
economy in a quarter of a cen- 

The Million Dollar Program 
objective in the four years it has 
been operating has been to raise 
whatever was necessary to balance 
the operating budget and have 
some left over toward retiring the 
capital debt, which still stands at 
$2,100,000. Next year (see budget 
story below), $980,000 will have 
to be raised to balance and the 
million dollars will have to be 
exceeded substantially to make 
inroads on the debt. 

True to the Sewanee tradition 
of not knuckling under to trends, 
the administration and the regents 
and trustees are determined nei- 
ther to scrape off academic quality 
nor cut down student aid, needed 
more now rather than less, to 
reduce the amount it seeks to 
what would seem a realistic target. 
Since the million-dollar level of 
unrestricted giving has not yet 
been reached, the eye of realism in 
this recession year might be a bit 

But three very different people 
on three different occasions were 
heard to make, independently, the 
observation that Sewanee has 
owed its character — and at times 
its existence— to miracles. The 
three, using strikingly similar 

phraseology, are Vice-Chancellor J. 
Jefferson Bennett, Bishop and for- 
mer Dean of the School of Theo- 
logy George M. Alexander and 
Robert M. Ayres, alumnus, regent 
and chairman of the Million Dollar 

Other Large Gifts 

The Morans' pledge, plus sev- 
eral gifts in a single week of 
$10,000 qualifying for the new 
Chancellor's Society, the steady 
rise of the MDP budget-applicable 
gifts, and above all the spirit mov- 
ing Robert Ayres and being com- 
municated to all of Sewanee's 
constituencies sustains belief that 
the Sewanee miracle is operating 
anew. Realism, take a back seat. 
Determination will prevail. 

The Moran Gift 

Mr. and Mrs. John J. Moran, who 
have pledged $125,000 in unrestric- 
ted funds to lift off the Million 
Dollar Program into the realm of 
the achievable, are the parents of a 
senior in the College, John A. 

"This pledge seems to me one 
of the most important in the 
history of the University of the 

South," Robert Ayres, MDP chair- 
man, says. "In addition to its 
value in itself, it signals the confi- 
dence of those who know best 
what the University has to offer, 
and leads the way for the success 
of our undertaking in these diffi- 
cult times." 

Mr. and Mrs. Moran are resi-' 
dents of Houston, Texas, where 
Mr. Moran is founder, chairman of 
the board and executive officer of 
Hycel, Inc. Mrs. Moran is a direc- 
tor of the Houston Grand Opera 
Association. Mr. Moran is a direc- 
tor of the Houston Symphony 
Society and the Museum of Fine 
Arts, Houston. 

Responding to the outpouring 
of thanks for their generous 
pledge, the Morans said, "The kind 
of education offered in all three 
units of the University of the 
South-the College, School of 
Theology and Academy— the all- 
out regard for each student in a 
Christian environment— must be 
preserved and fortified. Our world 
needs it more than ever. We are 
thankful that we are in a position 
to help." 

Fund Raising Proceeds Apace 

A new giving category, the Chan- Ten of the metropolitan areas 

cellor's Society, has been establish- organized into mini-campaigns for 

ed for benefactors giving $10,000 the Million Dollar Program were 

or more in a single year. A suit- expected to have final reports in 

able token of recognition is now by June 1. Four others— Tampa, 

being devised.

St. Petersburg, Memphis and Chat- 
tanooga—are in work. "This is one 
of the most successful methods 
yet devised for the Million Dollar 
Program," says William Whipple, 
vice-president for development. 
"The dollar figures are not yet 
totaled, but we are so delighted 
with the increased involvement, 
particularly of alumni, that we 
plan to continue year after year 
and expand into other cities." 

For the Million Dollar Program 
* of budget-applicable gifts the fig- 
ure as of May 9 was $647,869. A 
total of $83,659 of the $100,000 
Challenge Grant of one dollar for 
every two of increased giving had 
already been claimed. (Please see 
table above for eight-month totals 
in all categories of giving.)

Regents Elected, Trustees Deliberate 

The announcement to the trustees 
of the $125,000 pledge from Mr. 
and Mrs. John J. Moran of Hous- 
ton (see above) by Robert M. 
Ayres, as well as his reporting of 
new members of the Chancellor's 
Society, contributing $10,000 
each, stimulated the board to a 
sense of involvement and purpose 
to a degree seldom noted before. 

The board met April 17-19, 
for the first time in recent history 
while all three units of the Corpor- 
ation they govern were in session. 
Students assumed responsibility 
for escorting individual trustees, 
and time was reserved for free 
visiting of groups and classes. Trus- 
tees expressed enthusiasm for the 
arrangement and this, too, no 
doubt enhanced their sense of 
enlightened involvement. The earli- 
er meeting time stretched normal 
accommodations, but a number of 
homes were opened for the occa- 
sion and the interchange brought 
about by this was thought to be 
another plus. 

A hundred trustees made the 
trip, heard brief reports from 
administrators of the University 
and studied more detailed written 
reports, heard an address from the 
Chancellor, their chairman, the Rt. 
Rev. John M. Allin, Presiding 
Bishop of the Episcopal Church in 
America; they divided for intensive 
committee work, and elected four 
new regents to the fourteen- 
member board which meets three 
times as often as the trustees and 
acts as its executive arm. They 
also affirmed the membership of 
trustees nominated by the facul- 
ties, student bodies and alumni. 

Four Regents Named 

The bishop-regent elected is 
the Rt. Rev. ■ Christoph Keller of 
Arkansas, GST'57, H'68. Bishop 
Keller had been serving to fill an 
uncompleted term, and so was 
eligible. New clerical regent is the 
Very Rev. W. Thomas Fitzgerald, 
GST'53, rector of the Church of 
the Redeemer in Sarasota, Florida 
and dean of the Sarasota Deanery. 

The two newly elected regents 
are Robert M. Ayres, Jr., C'49, 
H'74, senior vice-president of the 
Rotan Mosle national investment 
banking firm in San Antonio, 
Texas, chairman of the Million 
Dollar Program and former chair- 
man of the board of regents; and 
Thomas S. Tisdale, Jr., C'61, a 
member of the law firm of Young, 
Clement and Rivers in Charleston, 
South Carolina. 

At the opening Evensong in 
All Saints' Chapel, at which the 
Chancellor, Bishop Allin, spoke, 
the University Choir sang in top 
voice. The Chancellor praised 
"Those lovely voi«^trom those

He took the theme of his 
address from the Book of Joshua: 
"What mean ye by these stones?" 
and spoke to the values behind the 
physical manifestations of the Uni- 
versity of the South. "If this is a 
Christian university," he said, "it 
is a place of service. 

"These words are meaningless 
and valueless unless manifested in 
human experience. No one can 
experience the meaning, much less 
the joy of service who has never 
served. And can one serve without 

"The measure of a liberal edu- 
cation is the breadth of service 
one becomes free to engage in as a 
result of the disciplined develop- 
ment of one's faculties. The pur- 
pose is not a leading to idleness, 
but to service, to engagement, to 
sharing, to living." 

A Place of Goodness 

Later in his address Bishop 
Allin affirmed: 

"This is a place of goodness 
And of joy— 

"In spite of periods of depres- 
sion, distraction and distortion, 
this University community has 
never been successful in renoun- 
cing our motto: 'Ecce Quam 
Bonum.' The reason the motto 
endures, yea, prevails, is that this 
is a good and joyful place for 
brothers and sisters to dwell to- 
gether in a university." 

The full address by Bishop 
Allin will be furnished on request 
to this magazine. 

In another innovation, trustees' 
sessions were held in locations at 
the three units of the Corporation, 
to afford wider familiarity in the 
brief time at hand. The first plen- 
ary session, when the board heard 
from the Vice-Chancellor, the 
deans of the College and School of 
Theology and the headmaster of 
the Sewanee Academy, was held in 
Hargrove Auditorium of Hamilton 
Hall at the Academy. 

The Friday night banquet at 
the Sewanee Inn had as speaker 
Dr. John Reishman of the College 
English faculty, who defined fur- 
ther what is meant by a liberal 
arts education. 

"To Move Us to Action" 

The trustees' Saturday morning 
full session marked a return to 
tradition. It was held in Convoca- 
tion Hall, a building begun in 
1886 with the primary purpose of 
affording a meeting place for the 
extraordinarily large board of trus- 
tees, used also as a library from 
1901 to 1965, when the Jessie 
Ball duPont Library assumed that 
function. Convocation Hall, a fa- 
vorite quiet place now for stu- 
dents, houses the Fooshee brows- 
ing collection. It retains the noble 
old windows, cathedral-high ceil- 
ing, old woodwork and the many 
oil portraits of founders and other 
persons notable in the history of 
the University. 

In that eloquent atmosphere 
the trustees heard of the Univer- 
sity's needs from the development 
department, headed by William U. 
Whipple, vice-president. The im- 
portance of a personal contribu- 
tion from every member of the 
University family and governing 

boards and the necessity for active 
recruitment of other gifts was 
brought home to the trustees by 
Mr. Whipple, Vice-Chancellor 
Bennett and Mr. Ayres. 

Bishop George M. Murray of 
the Central Gulf Coast diocese, 
chairman of the trustees' finance 
committee, summed it all up when 
he spoke of the confidence in- 
spired by the Million Dollar Pro- 
gram leadership. "We have to 
reach a goal of $1,025,000 to 
balance the budget. This has never 
been reached before. We are bet- 
ting on two good men, but we are 
betting on them to move us to 

"Proofs of the Pudding," an 
address to the trustees of the 
University made in 1974 by 
Thad Marsh, provost, has

by the University Press at the 
request of the trustees, and is 
now available without charge.

Admissions to the College for this 
fall were closed out May 1, the 
earliest day since Albert Gooch 
has been director of admissions, he 
reports. The total of final applica- 
tions was second only to last 
year's record number. 

The School of Theology has 
set its enrollment limit at seventy- 
five, and Dean Urban T. Holmes 
expects to hit that figure within 
one or two. The Sewanee Acad- 
emy, with the renovation of 
Gorgas Hall making possible an 
increase of thirty girl boarding 
students, is up from last year at 
this time with the picture still 
wide open. Academy admissions 
director Gerald Shields says that 
of ninety-two new students last 
August, seventy-two applied be- 
tween May 15 and August 17. 

College admissions were set for 
270 and they hit that plus a few 
more beyond the expected number 
accepting the University's invita- 
tion to enroll. Tight dormitory 
space was overstrained by the 
phenomenally high pre-registration 
of students planning to return, and 
veteran Selden Hall, considered a 
temporary structure after World 
War II, will have to report for 
duty once again. Fortunately, 
shabby dormitories seem almost as 
"in" for student favor as ragged 
gowns. In addition, all the rooms 
at the Sewanee Inn not already 
converted to dormitory use will 
have to be so used for 1975-76. 

Gooch declares that the quali- 
ty of the new freshman class is as 
high as ever, both in academic 
promise and outside interests. 

Queried as to his reaction to 
this repeated success story amid 
the general doomsday air that 
hovers over private colleges in 
national reporting, Albert Gooch 
says, "I'm pleased, of course. But 
most of the good colleges are 
doing well. Our job is not to do 
well in comparison to other col- 
leges and in comparison to the 
favorable or unfavorable factors 
that affect our work. Our job is to 
do what is expected and necessary 
to keep Sewanee among the good 
college ranks. 

"It is remarkable that we are 
doing so well in spite of tuition 
increases last year and this, adding 
$650 to what it was two years 
ago. Many of these students could 
of course go to a public university 
at a fraction of the cost; and some 
of them could get need-free schol- 
arships at other private colleges. 
But they think Sewanee is worth 
the extra cost. 

"In one way success in enrol- 
ling new students is a mixed bles- 
sing," Albert Gooch says. "We 
have to say no, most regretfully, 
to some mighty fine candidates. 

That is why we have begun to 
offer guaranteed January admis- 
sion to some who just miss in the 

Mr. Gooch and his staff— Paul 
Engsberg, Douglas Seiters . and 
John Allin— are notably hard work- 
ers, and we asked if that was not a 
considerable factor in Sewanee's 
outstanding success. 

"We do work hard," Gooch 
conceded. "I always have in mind 
Robert Kennedy's dictum that 
people sympathize with those who 
try hard, and we try hard. Not to 
sell a bill of goods— just the oppo- 
site—but to introduce prospective 
students to Sewanee and urge 
them to see for themselves. We try 

to get everyone to make at least 
an overnight visit here. We are 
entirely dependent when they 
come on the people who are here, 
the students and the faculty. We 
avoid anything like a sales pitch. 
In fact, we tell each prospective 
student that if he or she has any 
doubts, to go somewhere else. 
Sometimes people think we are 
trying to talk them out of Sewa- 
nee— we are not; we just want 
them to be sure. I believe that 
accounts for our superb and stead- 
ily rising retention rate." 

The admissions director was 
most emphatic in acknowledging 
indebtedness to "the people out 
there in the field, who think of us 

all the time. People like the Rev. 
Henry Perrin, who drove twelve 
hours across Arkansas and Tennes- 
see to bring someone here, who 
signed up on the spot. Or Bob and 
Pat Ayres, who packed up five or 
six candidates onto a plane and 
flew them here. Or James Cate, 
C'47, the Rev. Chester Grey, T'70, 
Brad Whitney, C'70, and Dick 
Simmons, C'50. All of them have 
sent or brought many prospective 
students to the campus. Without 
people like them we'd be nowhere. 
"There is never a time when 
we can relax. There are only fif- 
teen months until 1976's freshman 
class is due."

Bishop's Common Dedication 

Rain dampened participants and 
visitors here for the dedication of 
the Bishop's Common student 
center of the University of the 
South Saturday, May 3, but not 
their spirit of gratitude for the 
handsome building. 

The 57-bell Polk Memorial 
Carillon played an opening concert 
as scheduled. The University Choir 
and Brass Choir, which had 
planned to lead with music a 
procession into the building, per- 
formed instead from the game 
room near the front entrance 
while their audience listened from 
the corridors. 

In the part of the service call- 
ing for the doors of the building 
to be blessed with water, the 
amount allocated was substantially 
reinforced from heaven. Opening 
the doors for their blessing were 
Mrs. Agnes Wilcox, director of the 
Common, and Thomas Gibson, 
assistant director. 

Robert S. Lancaster, professor 
of political science, former dean of 
the College of Arts and Sciences 
of the University and in 1965 
Bishop Frank A. Juhan's successor 
for two years as director of devel- 
opment, spoke of his old friend in 
response to the remark by J. Jef- 
ferson Bennett, vice-chancellor and 
president, that a generation had 
grown up "who knew not the 
Bishop" for whom the Bishop's 
Common is a memorial. That 
name was chosen because an earli- 
er building, the Juhan Gymnasium, 
given by Mrs. Alfred I. duPont 
during her lifetime and Bishop 
Juhan's, already bore his name. 

The main service took place in 
front of two bronze plaques, one 

on each side of the reception area. 
The bas relief of Bishop Juhan on 
one of the plaques was designed 
by Lt. Col. George Olney of 

The other plaque included the 
names of the members of the 
committee for a memorial to 
Bishop Juhan: Robert S. Lancas- 
ter, chairman (Sewanee); Robert 
M. Ayres, San Antonio; Warner B. 
Ballard, Ruleville, Mississippi; J. 
Jefferson Bennett, Sewanee; David 
B. Collins, Atlanta (Dean of St. 
Philip's Cathedral); John P. Guer- 
ry, Chattanooga; Girault M. Jones, 
Sewanee; W. Sperry Lee, Jackson- 
ville, Florida; Edward McCrady, 
Sewanee and Charleston, South 
Carolina; C. Caldwell Marks, Bir- 
mingham, Alabama; Marcus L. 
Oliver, Sewanee; Alfred R. Shands, 
Wilmington, Delaware; William H. 
Terry, Jacksonville, Florida; Niles 
Trammell, Miami, Florida; L. Kem- 
per Williams, New Orleans; G. 
Cecil Woods, Chattanooga; John 
W. Woods, Birmingham, Alabama. 
Taking part in the service of 
dedication were the University's 
chaplains, former Chancellor 
Bishop Girault M. Jones, G. Cecil 
Woods (a member of the commit- 
tee for a memorial to Bishop 
Juhan, who spoke the words of 
presentation), the Rev. Alexander 
D. Juhan, A'34, C'40, of Ponte 
Vedra Beach, Fla., Bishop Juhan's 
son, and donors of various memor- 
ials within the building who pre- 
sented them as the congregation 
processed to the sections involved. 
Bishop Juhan's son-in-law and 
daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Sollace M. 
Freeman, and other members of 
the family participated in the cere- 

monies, which included a special 
recognition of Vera MacKnight 
Spencer Juhan, the Bishop's wife, 
who died in 1973. 

The lounge was given in mem- 
ory of Marion Hamilton Wallace of 
Nashville; the Communication Cen- 
ter was dedicated in memory of 
Cleo and Niles Trammell, A'14, 
C'18, of Miami, Florida, whose 
bequest of $325,000 formed a 
major portion of the funds that 
went into the building; the snack 
shop was given by San Antonio 
friends and family of Frank M. 
Gillespie, C'll, H'63; and the 
music lounge was presented by Mr. 
and Mrs. C. E. Drummond of 

Because of the rain, plans to 
proceed outdoors to the entrance 

to the Tiger Bay entertainment 
and refreshment area were altered 
and the presentation, by John 
Guerry, A'43, C'49, of Chatta- 
nooga for the donor, Ledlie 
Conger, Jr., C'49, of Atlanta, was 
made from within the building. 

Visitors expressed admiration 
of the collegiate Gothic architec- 
ture of the cut sandstone struc- 
ture, in a style similar to that of 
the other main University build- 
ings, and of the contemporary 
decor, designed by Miss Maury 
McGee of Sewanee. Cost of the 
building was $1,300,000. 

The Sewanee Woman's Club 
offered a reception following the 
ceremony to all attending the ded-

Text of Dr. Lancaster's Address: 

This student union is a memorial to Bishop 
Frank Juhan. The Bishop's Common is his 
Common. Since a generation is arising that knew 
not the Bishop and his good works, I have been 
commissioned to speak briefly about my loyal 

Bishop Juhan came to Sewanee as a student 
in 1907 at a time when Sewanee was still 
essentially a family. He distinguished himself as a 
young man of much charm and splendid athletic 
ability. From the time he left Sewanee until his 
death in 1967, he served this University with 
unflagging zeal and 'devoted imagination. As a 
parish priest in Texas and South Carolina he 
worked with all sorts and conditions of men as a 
true shepherd of his flock. In 1924 he was 
consecrated as Bishop of Florida, the youngest 
bishop in the Church. 

It is about his good work for Sewanee, 
however, that I must principally speak. He served 
Sewanee in more different capacities and offices, 
I believe, than any other alumnus. He was 
chaplain and coach at Sewanee Military Academy. 
He was at one time or another trustee, regent, 
Chancellor, director of development, and Consul- 
tant Extraordinary. In some ways he contributed 
more to this Mountain than any other person, 
living or dead. 

It was he who interested Mrs. Jessie Ball 
duPont in this University. It was he who, when 
money was unavailable for raising faculty salaries, 
found it. It was he who as director of develop- 
ment brought to Sewanee the funds for much of 
what you see around you. It was he who led to 
successful conclusion the campaign to match the 
Ford Foundation grant. It was he who found 
time in his busy life to counsel with students, 
support the needy both black and white, provide 
red meat dinners to hungry athletes, and oc- 
casionally preach in Otey or All Saints' Chapel. It 
was to him that people in trouble almost instinc- 
tively turned. 

The Bishop was an old-fashioned churchman. 
He would not have liked the Green Book. He 
wanted men delivered from evil, but he never 
minded the testing of men. He thought that the 
true mission of the Church is the salvation of 
souls through the redeeming mercy of our Lord 
Jesus Christ. Social and political uplift came 
about almost incidentally as a by-product of 
faith. Education he thought to be more a matter 
of building character and setting values than 
imparting information. Whatever contributed to 
the uplifting of the human spirit he supported. 
Whatever was base and ignoble he relentlessly 
opposed. Perhaps he would not have been able to 
articulate the subtle distinction between por- 
nography and art, but the difference between 

good and evil he knew. Like Burke he realii 
well that "in what we improve we are ne 
wholly new; in what we retain we are ne 
wholly obsolete." He had faith in the future i 
reverence for the past. He believed like Chesl 
ton that one should refuse to surrender insti 
tional values "to the arrogant oligarchy of thi 
who merely happened to be walking around.' 
company he was an attentive listener; his < 
address was courteous and urbane. When 
spoke people listened because he had someth 
to say. To him the Lord gave the spirit 

Above all Frank Juhan was devoted to 
God and his church. Not far behind & 
Sewanee. The Bishop was a strong-willed man 
virile man, a generous man, a godly man. Wh 
ever he touched he adorned. Without him 1 
place would not be the same. Before his death 
spoke to me several times of his desire for a n 
student union where barbarism would not 
often intrude, a place which by its beauty 
style might inspire gentility and evoke h

Sewanee Climbing School a First 

The Blazed Trail Climbing School, 
sponsored by the sports equipment 
firm Abercrombie and Fitch, is 
being held at the Sewanee Acad- 
emy June 1 to August 18. James 
H. Scott, Academy chemistry 
instructor and founder of the 
school's outdoor program, is the 
director, and the Academy is pro- 
viding accommodations and lecture 
facilities for those attending the 

There are ten sessions during 
the period, each session lasting 
seven days. There are two levels of 
instruction— Level I and Level II. 
Level I has open enrollment, while 
Level II starts with technical 
climbing from the first day. The 
ratio for both groups is three 
students to one instructor. The 
minimum age is sixteen years, with 
students under twenty-one re- 
quired to have parental consent. 

Instructors in addition to Scott 
are James Banks of Sewanee, who 
will be administrative associate; 
William Terry, Jr., C'71, of Sewa- 
nee; Alan Barnhardt of Charlotte, 
North Carolina; Stephen Jones of 
Asheville, North Carolina; Bill 
Davidson, A'73, of Decherd, Ten- 
nessee; Craig Porter, A'74, of' 
Sewanee; George Westbrook, A'72, 
of Salt Lake City, Utah; Jeff Strat- 
ton, A'76, of Winchester, Tennes- 
see; Mark Tanksley, C'72, of Se- 
wanee; Em Chitty, A'73, C'76, of 
Sewanee; Steve Larson, C'74, of 
Jesup, Georgia; John Henry 
Looney, A'74, C'78, of Sewanee; 
Jim Ridley, A'73, of Chattanooga; 
and Gail Ludwig of Greeley, Colo- 

"Rock Climbers' Paradise" 

A special brochure on the 
school distributed by Abercrombie 
and Fitch says: "Since the Blazed 
Trail Climbing School will be a 
learning experience, we felt that 
an atmosphere which might com- 
bine the academic with the out- 
of-doors would be ideal. We were 
most fortunate to discover Sewa- 
nee, Tennessee, home of the Se- 
wanee Academy and the Univer- 
sity of the South. Sewanee is out 
of the main stream of climbing 
traffic and gives us the chance to 
work intensively with our students 
with minimal distractions from the 
outside world. Close to the Chatta- 
nooga airport (our buses will meet 
students there), it nevertheless is 
in the middle of a rock climbers' 
paradise, the sandstone escarpment 
which rims the Cumberland Pla- 
teau providing miles of safe, solid 
rock, ideal for instructional pur- 
poses. From the campus of the 
Sewanee Academy, many of the 
climbing areas are within a short 
walk; others are just minutes away 
by car. 

"During past academic years, 
the Academy has maintained an 
outstanding program of climbing 
instruction. As a result, there is a 
pool of proven instructional talent 
from which many of our instruc- 
tors have been chosen. Their safe- 
ty standards are the highest and 
they have a complete familiarity 
with the area as well as a unified 
teaching program which has 
achieved demonstrable results." 

Scott Well Qualified 

James Scott, head of the Acad- 
emy's science departments, started 
the immediately popular outdoor 
program at the school in 1970. 
Special projects under its umbrella 
during the interim term attract 
large enrollments. Survival and res- 
cue techniques have been added to 

Scott has been at the Academy 
for twelve years. When he became 

interested in climbing he spent The Very Rev. W. Thomas Fitzger- 
summers at the Colorado Outward aid, T'60, rector of the Church of 
Bound School Teacher's Practicum the Redeemer in Sarasota, Florida 
and made numerous ascents in the and dean of the Sarasota Convoca- 
Snowmass area. For the past three tion, and a newly elected regent of 
summers he has served as a climb- 
ing instructor, supervisor of a staff 

of American guides and rope lead- 
er for a camp based in Zermatt, 

Switzerland. Among his ascents in from Middle Tennessee State Uni- 
the Swiss Alps was the Matterhom versity and an M.A.T. in physics 
in 1972. from the University of the South. 

Jim hails from North Georgia His wife Mamie teaches at the

the University, was baccalaureate 
speaker for the Sewanee Academy 
May 11. Dean Fitzgerald taught 
chemistry at the Academy for the 
three years he was in the semi- 
nary. Justice Joseph W. Henry of 
the Tennessee Supreme Court was 
speaker for the Academy's 107th 
Commencement May 18, at which 
sixty seniors received diplomas. 

For the University baccalaure- 
ate the following week the preach- 
er was the Very Rev. Richard T. 
Lambert, rector of Trinity-by-the- 
Cove Church in Naples, Florida

Torches and Cross 

The School of Theology dedicated 
new processional torches and cross 
February 26 in memory of the 
Very Rev. F. Craighill Brown, 
dean of the seminary from 1949 
to 1953. The Rt. Rev. Duncan M. 
Gray, Jr., Bishop of Mississippi, 
officiated at the dedication. 

Donated by the school's alum- 
ni association, the torches and 
cross were specially cast of rough- 
surfaced aluminum by Rollin 
Tyrell of Lafayette, Louisiana, a 
railroad engineer who does the 

Human Ecology 

Various support services in the 
University and the community 
have merged and enlarged into a 
Human Ecology Project. 

This arose three years ago 
when Dr. Roger Way, University 
Health Officer, expressed his con- 
cern to the Vice-Chancellor for the 
need to broaden mental health 
resources. The V.C. asked a small 
group to form a community-wide 
committee, which made a study 
and recommendations. A counsel- 
ing service was initiated first, with 
the University supplying the origi- 
nal funds to start the project. It is 
now largely funded by the Sewa- 
nee Community Chest. 

A permanent steering commit- 
tee, headed by the Rev. Daryl 
Canfill, assistant chaplain, holds 
open meetings weekly to review 
ongoing services and plan new 
ones. Eight hours of professional 
psychological counseling are pro- 
vided each week, with two coun- 
selors from the Multi-County Men- 
tal Health Center in Tullahoma 
available every Thursday afternoon 
to provide either short- or long- 
term help. Referrals are made 
through the chaplains', deans', or 
health offices. 

Bill Wallace of the Dee Dee 
Wallace Center in Nashville is avail- 
able every other' week for com- 
munity program counseling, train- 
ing in counseling for proctors and 
others in front-line positions and 
for training in communication 
among groups. 

The project also maintains a 
burial society to provide practical 
advice for people who have to 
plan a funeral. A day-care center is 
under study. 

A remarkable feature of the 
Human Ecology Project is its 
cross-fertilization from all seg- 
ments of the community as well as 
the University faculty, administra- 
tion and student body. 

casting as a hobby. The wooden 
shafts were made by another 
hobbyist, Frederick Whitesell, pro- 
fessor of German in the College. 

Craighill Brown graduated 
from the College in 1922 as saluta- 
torian of his class, having earned 
his degree in three years, and 
received his B.D. from Virginia 
Theological Seminary. He went 
from there to China, where he 
taught at St. John's University in 
Shanghai and Central Theological 
School in Nanking. He returned to 
the United States in 1930 and was 
rector of Emmanuel Church in 
Southern Pines, North Carolina, 
for twenty years before becoming 
dean of St. Luke's. 

He helped organize the Sewa- 
nee chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, 
which was established in 1926, 
and was elected to its membership 
while dean of the seminary. He 
was awarded the honorary D.D. by 
Virginia Theological Seminary in 
1950. In 1953 Dean Brown joined 
most of his School of Theology 
faculty in resigning when the Uni- 
versity board of trustees did not 
follow their recommendation to 
revise the ordinances to spell out 
admission without regard to race. 
The revision was made the follow- 
ing year. 

After leaving Sewanee he join- 
ed the faculty of Berkeley Divinity 
School as professor of pastoral 
theology, and retired in 1966. He 
died in 1968. 

Bishop Gray dedicates processional < 
in St. Luke's Chapel 

Following the resoundingly suc- 
cessful incumbencies of two earlier 
Brown Fellows from Oxford, 
Dennis Shaw of Keble College and 
Dorothy Bednarowska of St. 
Anne's, the College Summer 
School this year will have Walford 
Davies, also from St. Anne's, offer- 
ing a course in modern poetry. A 
Welshman himself, he is an author- 
ity on Dylan Thomas. 

Mr. Davies is senior lecturer in 
English and American literature at 
St. Anne's College and a member 
of the Oxford University English 
faculty. He has been dean and 
tutor and director of studies of 
the University of Oxford Graduate 
Summer School. He visited New 
York last year to sit on the selec- 
tion committee of the Institute of 
International Education, which 

selects the American graduates for 
the course. He represented the 
staff of the associated summer 
school programs of the Universities 
of London, Birmingham, Edin- 
burgh and Oxford. 

The Brown Senior Fellowship 
was established by an anonymous 
foundation to fund at Sewanee an 
American modification of the Ox- 
ford tutorial. Allen Tate, the first 
Brown Fellow, recommended that 
Oxford professors be called on. 
Edward McCrady, who as Vice- 
Chancellor was a strong proponent 
of tutorial instruction and was 
instrumental in starting the pro- 
gram, has been a Brown Fellow, as 
has Charles Harrison, professor 
emeritus of English revered by a 
long succession of Sewanee stu- 

Theological Extension 

"A person who's serious about 
Christianity can be as effective, or 
more so, in a lay position than if 
he were ordained," says Dr. 
Charles Winters, professor of theo- 
logy at the University of the 
South's School of Theology. "If 
he's in a position to influence 
people as a layman, ordination 
may remove him from this influ- 

These are some of the people 
for whom the School of The- 
ology's new Theological Extension 
course is being designed. Dr. Win- 
ters, who has begun work on the 
first unit under a $15,000 grant 
from the Episcopal Church Foun- 
dation, says there are many more 
people offering themselves for 
ministry than the bishops can 
accept for ordination and there- 
fore they cannot be recommended 
by the bishop for seminary study. 

But at the same time, he says, 
the only way at present to get 
training for effective service in a 
lay ministry is in the seminary. 
Theological Extension will offer 
the whole three-year School of 
Theology curriculum , in home- 
study texts, tape cassettes of 
actual seminary lectures, and small 
local seminar groups, with a certif- 
icate instead of a degree on com- 
pletion. The first course, an Old 
Testament series, is expected to be 
ready this fall, and subsequent 
courses will be offered as they are 

A group which is very interes- 
ted in Theological Extension is the 
Navajo Indian community in Ari- 
zona, New Mexico and Utah, who 
want to train native ministers to 
serve their people without losing 
the values of their own culture. 

Also, says Dr. Winters, forty of 
the ninety-three Episcopal dioceses 
in the United States have training 
institutes which might use the 

theological extension courses in 
their own training program, or 
parishes might use all or parts of 
the program for adult education 
groups. "We've been thinking 
about a program like this for a 
long time," he said. "What pushed 
it to the front now was the re- 
quest, almost a demand, from the 
church for some seminary to do 

Dr. Winters said the Presbyter- 
ian* Seminary in Guatemala is the 
pioneer in theological extension, 
using it to train native ministers. 

"I know of only one other 
seminary in this country doing this 
type of thing," he said. "That is 
Fuller Theological Seminary in 
Pasadena, California, also Presby- 
terian. But their approach is differ- 
ent, with training centers to which 
people come." The Sewanee semi- 
nary faculty will hold four-day 
training conferences for the leaders 
of the seminars, in the area where 
the people live. Tuition will be 
charged to cover the materials and 
the leader's stipend. 

The same course can be 
studied either at a basic level or an 
advanced level, with the advanced 
branching out into much more 
study and guided reading. Dr. Win- 
ters estimated that, the basic level 
could be completed in about two 
years, assuming about three or 
four hours reading a week, while it 
would take a minimum of four 
years at the advanced level "and 
then you will be only beginning a 
life-long study!" 

The curriculum at the School 
of Theology in Sewanee is con- 
stantly changing as needs for new 
ministerial skills and knowledge 
arise. The students, about half of 
them experienced professional men 
from other fields, participate in 
shaping the course of study. 

Medieval Colloquium II 


Sewanee was a eenter of interna- 
tional medieval studies April 9-12 
when scholars in that field con- 
verged for the second annual 
Medieval Colloquium from thirty- 
four universities and schools in 
England, Scotland, Canada and 
such geographically divergent insti- 
tutions in the United States as the 
Universities of California in Berke- 
ley and Santa Barbara and the 
University of Connecticut. 

Among the other universities 
from which professors came were 
Emory, the University of Georgia, 
Columbia University and.St. Bona- 
venture in New York, Princeton's 
Institute for Advanced Study, 
Davidson, Duke, Ohio State, Van- 
derbilt and the Universities of 
Manchester and Edinburgh. 

The 118 scholars attending 
heard major papers by Denys Hay, 
professor of history and vice-prin- 
cipal at the University of Edin- 
burgh, and Eugene Vinaver, emeri- 
tus professor at the University of 
Manchester and visiting professor 
at the University of Victoria. Both 
are internationally recognized lead- 
ers in their field. The group divi- 
ded for concurrent papers and 
seminars, which included response 
papers. One of the session chair- 
men was Professor W. Brown 
Patterson, C'52, here from David- 
son College. The Rev. William 
McKeachie, C'66, diocesan theolo- 
gian for the Bishop of Toronto, 
was one of the participants, as was 
Dr. Joseph A. Kicklighter, C'67, 
from Woodward Academy. 

Following a precedent from 
last year's initial Colloquium Dr. 
Hay offered a series of three lec- 
tures, outlining the role of intellec- 
tuals in the church and in politics 
in the late Middle Ages. He dealt 
with the influence of ideas and the 
power of circumstances, events 

and vested interests in shaping 
them and in doing so gave perspec- 
tive to many major events of that 

Dr. Vinaver's paper, "Medieval 
Poetry and the Moderns," dis- 
cussed scholars' search for meaning 
in medieval poetry. He said that 

works of that period are not per- 
ceptible as a whole and are mean- 
ingful only in the impressions 
gained from the parts. Dr. Hay 
responded to Dr. Vinaver. 

Organizer and director of the 
Medieval Colloquium is Dr. 
Edward B. King, C'47, assistant 
professor of history in the College. 

Vang ha ii Retires 

Douglas Loughmiller Vaughan, 
treasurer of the University of the 
South since 1949 and a member 
of the University administration 
for forty years, retires June 10. He 
will be succeeded by Harold Dodd, 
now chief accountant. 

Born at Sewanee, the son of 
the late D. L. Vaughan, he is the 
grandson of one of the pioneer 
settlers on the plateau, H. L. Bra- 
zelton, who died in 1947 at the 
age of ninety-nine. He was gradu- 
ated from the Sewanee Military 
Academy in 1930 and after the 
death of his father the next year, 
took a job in the Bank of Sewa- 
nee, supporting his mother, two 
sisters and brother while attending 
college at the University of the 
South. He was a member of Phi 
Delta Theta and won letters in 
tennis and track. 

Following his graduation in 
1935 he was employed in the 
treasurer's office under Telfair 
Hodgson. In 1941 he was made 
business manager, leaying to enter 
the Navy qs a Naval Aviator in 
1942. He was a flight instructor 
based at Memphis Naval Air Sta- 
tion. He served on flight duty in 
the Pacific with the Naval Air 

Transport Command, rising to the 
rank of lieutenant commander. 

Following the war, he returned 
to be made assistant treasurer. In 
1947 he was made manager of the 
University Supply Store, and two 
years later succeeded Telfair Hodg- 
son as the University's treasurer, 

the post he has held ever since. He 
likes to recall that he joined the 
administration when the Univer- 
sity's books were kept by a man 
with an eyeshade on a high stool, 
and worked through the period of 
rather cumbersome data processing 
to the present sophisticated Hew- 
lett-Packard computer. The endow- 
ment he managed went through a 
comparable evolution. 

He was a lecturer in economics 
in the College of Arts and Sciences 

Douglas Vaughan is noted for 
many skills and hobbies. He is 
amateur radio operator W4ERN, a 
tennis player, has flown his own 
planes and is a craftsman of stone- 
masonry and other construction, 
electrical and plumbing work and 
carpentry. He did much of the 
building of his home himself. 

He plans to devote his retire- 
ment years to developing a 
150-acre tract of mountain land he 
owns on the bluff at Monteagle. 
When last seen, he was going that- 
away, exercising his son Ben's 

Dodd Is New Treasurer 

Harold Edwin Dodd, C.P.A., will 
become treasurer of the University 
July 1, succeeding Douglas 
Vaughan, who will retire June 30. 

Dodd has been the University's 
chief accountant since September, 
1972, when he came here from 
the Nashville firm of Touche Ross 
and Company. 

He was born in Nashville in 
1927 and was educated in Nash- 
ville public schools. He attended 
Tulane University for a year and 
transferred to Vanderbilt, where 
he received the B.A. degree in 

As treasurer he will have 
charge of all the University's fiscal 
activities and will be custodian of 
the endowment. 

Harold Dodd is married to the 
former Mildred Derryberry of 
Columbia, Tennessee. They have a 
son and two daughters. 

Prompted by the observation of two or 
three perceptive trustees that a strong 
spiritual life is manifest on this campus, 
and their desire to document the impres- 
sion, we queried the University Chaplain, 
Charles Kiblinger. 

At ease in his large new office, which 
is now being readied to accommodate 
meeting groups, the Chaplain comes on 
slight, young, direct and informed with an 
immense sensitive intelligence. These are 
notes on what he said. 

The Chaplains are busy— from left the Rev. Harry Bainbridge, chaplain of the Sewanee 
Academy; the Rev. Charles B. Kiblinger, University Chaplain; the Rev. Archie Staple- 
ton, rector of Otey Parish; and the Rev. Daryl Canfill, assistant chaplain. With Sister 
June David they form a team for "ministry on the Mountain." 


by Charles B. Kiblinger, C'61 

It is true that every day and 
almost every part of every day 
there is some kind of student 
activity invoked by Christian com- 
mitment. There are prayer groups 
meeting in the dormitories. One 
group jogs in the morning, then 
comes in for Bible study at 6; 00 
A.M. There is a structured Bible 
study Sunday morning following 
breakfast at Gailor, when we dis- 
cuss the scriptures for the service 
for the day. 

A Christian Fellowship group 
of about forty meets every Wed- 
nesday night for Bible discussion 
and prayer. They break into small 
groups sometimes and share exper- 
iences of what Christ has meant in 
their life. They sponsor a number 
of things— campouts, journeys to 
off-campus conferences, and I be- 
lieve they are planning for a fall 
visit of an evangelist musician or 

I would say about a hundred 
students are involved in these stu- 
dent-led activities— over ten per 
cent of the College. This is prob- 
ably part of a general upsurge of 
interest in spiritual life on most 
campuses. It is related "perhaps to 
the Pentecostal movement and the 
development of the Young Life 
movement in the high schools. 
Many of our students come here 
with a strong background of Epis- 
copal Church activity, and they 
carry it on. All these groups are 
initiated and led by students— that 
is very important. The chaplains 

and seminarians do attend and we 
are available as resource people. 

Chapel is Central 

I like to think of the Chapel as 
being ecumenical— ministering to 
the whole student body, only fifty 
per cent of whom are Episcopali- 
ans. The central event in our lives 
together takes place around the 
Communion table every Sunday 
morning. I believe the Chapel must 
remain the center of Christian life 
on the campus— we are one body. 
A third of all our students 
attend chapel regularly, and a hun- 
dred are involved with the Choir. 
A fourth do not attend at all, and 
the rest attend irregularly, once a 
month or so. This compares very 
well with the experience at other 
colleges whose chaplains I have 
talked to. One Episcopal college 
has a regular attendance of only 
fifty to seventy-five out of 1,500; 
and the number is about the same 
for the Episcopal chapel at the 
University of Tennessee among the 
very large percentage of Episco- 
palians in a student body of 
twenty-five to thirty thousand. 

We have daily chapel too, and 
here the attendance varies. The 
most popular is Thursday evening 
at 9:30, when we have an infor- 
mal, spontaneous celebration of 
the Eucharist. Often the students 
bring their own music— guitars— 
and there are spontaneous prayers 
and intercessions. 

When the chapel requirement 
was removed we started having 

fewer students actually in the 
chapel, of course, but the number 
of Communions taken began to 
rise and has continued to rise 
every year. 

There Is a Difference 

But that is by no means the 
whole story. I think the Church 
has no business operating this 
place unless we can offer a legiti- 
mate alternative to secular educa- 
tion. I believe there is a difference. 
I believe we need to act on it 
more and make ourselves known 

We are here because we want 
to preach, teach, learn and live out 
the Christian Gospel. I think that 
means a lot of things. It means the 
kind of atmosphere we provide, 
the kind of community we live in, 
how we live together. It means an 
atmosphere which connotes inti- 
mate relationships, understanding 
and trust between students and 
students, faculty and students, 
administrator— all the way 

The basic thing about liberal 
arts is learning to be aware of how 
you relate to other people, which 
is probably the most basic learning 
of all. If you are really involved in 
Christianity one of the things you 
are doing is developing a keen 
conscience toward the world, be- 
ginning to understand the great 
gaps in human life— division 
between the young and the old, 
between the affluent and the poor, 
the black and the white, the 

skilled and the unskilled, men and 
women. We need also to be aware 
of the great issues and problems of 
human life in our time: issues of 
war and peace, pollution, econom- 
ic conditions, starvation— all that 
brings pain in our world, and we 
must turn our academic and Chris- 
tian insight to them. 

We need to learn what it 
means to be free in Christ, free- 
dom in responsibility. When our 
students come here many of them 
experience freedom for the first 
time. They may apply it in ways 
that will help them grow or in 
ways that will thwart their growth. 
They must learn to live together in 
such a way as to be responsible to 
themselves and their neighbors and 
to God. That is Christian educa- 

We are here to seek the truth, 
the whole truth without fear. We 
are responsible for providing the 
most excellent education we can- 
in our teaching, facilities, curricu- 
lum, program. We must demand 
the best of scholarship, and pro- 
vide students and faculty freedom 
in a way that constricts no one. 
We must not indoctrinate. As 
Christians we should not be afraid 
to explore anything. That is the 
kind of community we ought to 

We have not reached an ideal 
state. I don't suppose we ever will, 
but that should not stop us from 
keeping these objectives. 

—I can tell you one thing. The 
chaplains are very busy. Something 
must be happening. 

Meet Your Regents 

The Rt. Rev. William Evan Sanders, T'45, H'59,

Dr. Morse Kochtitzky, C'42, H'70, Nashville 
physician, was born in St. Louis, Missouri in 
1920 and moved with his family to Blytheville, 
Arkansas and then to Columbus, Mississippi, 
where his father was an automobile dealer. Morse 
graduated from S. D. Lee High School in Colum- 
bus. At Sewanee he majored in chemistry, was 
president of Kappa Alpha and head cheerleader. 
He served as a second lieutenant in the Air Force

The Rev. Van B. Davis, C'49, T'42, rector of St. 
Christopher's Church in Pensacola, Florida, was 
born in Fernandina, Florida in 1924, the middle 
of three sons of a steamship agent. The family 
environment was both religious and musical, and 
young Van was determined to be a priest from an 
early age. He played the bass violin in high 
school— St. Joseph's Academy— and formed a 
combo to play at dances. He has also had a 
continuing interest in sports. 

In the College at Sewanee he was president of 
Sigma Alpha Epsilon and of the Order of Gowns- 
men, a member of ODK and Blue Key. His major 
was English. His college years were interrupted by 
three years' service in the Pacific Theatre as a 
Navy quartermaster. In 1964 he attended St.

completing his six -year term as regent. 

Jeff McMahan, C'76 

Ben Humphreys McGee, A'42, C'49 (he has 
retained his school nickname to the extent that 
when the Vice-Chancellor introduced him by his 
legal name to the Alumni Council he explained, 
"That's Latin for 'Ug'") was born in Greenville, 
Mississippi in 1925. His family lived in Sewanee 
during his early years. His brother Burrell is an 
alumnus of the College, his two sons followed 
him to both the Academy and College and his 
sister Maury (she was the decorator for the 
Bishop's Common) is now resident here. 

Mr. McGee, an economics major in the Col-

Lytle Book Out 

Andrew Lytle 's eagerly awaited 
memoirs, Wake for the Living, will 
be published by Crown on July 4 
with Bicentennial fanfare. In a 
tape recording requested by his 
publisher for promotional pur- 
poses, which he elected to have 
made at Sewanee, he recalled 
among many other things a bit of 
lore from the wellspring of Abbott 
Martin, Sewanee's late idiosyn- 
cratic seer. "Abbo had such a 
strong sense of place that when his 
mother made a train trip before he 
was born he was greatly agitated, 
lest he be born away from home." 
The sampling of the book afforded 
the happy two present at the 
recording, as well as the chapters 
printed earlier in the Sewanee Re- 
view, indicate that friends of Mr. 
Lytle and afficionados of his 
homely perceptions and elegant 
prose will be richly rewarded. 

He is in process of moving 
from Monteagle to a farm he 
bought near Lexington, Kentucky, 
where he has already planted a 
garden and orchard. "I can't live 
in a summer resort," he says. "It's 
not like it was when I had my 
work in Sewanee. —I'm too old to 
do this but I'm doing it anyway." 

Needs Updating 

George Core, Andrew Lytle's suc- 
cessor as editor of the Sewanee 
Review, received a manuscript 
addressed to William Knicker- 
bocker. Mr. Knickerbocker left his 
editorship in 1942. 

Copepods and Hawks 
Dr. Harry Yeatman, professor of 
biology in the College, has been a 
consul tant in a research project of 
Dr. John Couch at the University 
of North Carolina at Chapel Hill 
on the life cycle of a fungus 
parasitic on the larvae of anophe- 
les mosquitoes and, at another 
stage, on Dr. Yeatman's specialty, 
a type of copepod. The project 
gives promise of natural control of 
the mosquito, since the parasite 
kills the larvae but usually not the 
copepods. He has also been in- 
volved in identifying certain cope- 
pods from the Indian River in 
Delaware for Ecological Analysts, 
Inc. of Millsboro, Delaware, as a 
means of measuring pollution, and 
other copepods from the West 
Indies for a professor at the Uni- 
versity of Waterloo in Canada, and 
still others from Puerto Rico and 
Jamaica for a fellow biologist at 
the University of Arizona, Tucson. 
During the past year he has 
published "Two Rediscovered 
Species of Littoral Copepods from 
Barbados Collections" in the Jour- 
nal of the Tennessee Academy of 
Science and "Sharp-Shinned 
Hawks Nesting at Sewanee" in The 
Migrant. The latter paper resulted 

from a discovery by Steve Harris, 
C'76, of San Antonio, Texas. Mar- 
garet Ringland, C'75, Dr. Yeat- 
man's wife, Jean, and son, Clay, 
A'75, also worked on the study. 

Dr. Yeatman has an article, 
"Marine Littoral Copepods from 
Jamaica Crustaceana," to be pub- 
lished shortly in a Netherlands 
scientific journal, and "A New 
Species of Diagoniceps Copepod 
and Redescription of Female Di- 
agoniceps Laevis Willey" just read- 
ied to send off. 


Alice Garland, program director 
and instructor at the University 
Equestrian Center in Sewanee, has 
been listed in the dressage instruc- 
tor directory published by the 
United States Dressage Federation. 
She is the only instructor in Ten- 
nessee listed in this new publica- 
tion, designed "to stimulate more 
widespread instruction throughout 
the United States and to improve 
the level of performance seen in 
our competition." 

Mrs. Garland is an "A" grad- 
uate of the U.S. Pony Club and 
has judged Pony Club rallies and 
combined training events. She also 
holds an AHSA "D" rating as a 
dressage judge, and has studied 
with Michael Handler and Lockie 

"The U.S. Olympic placing in 
dressage has always been poor," 
said Mrs. Garland. "It is consider- 
ed an art as well as a sport and it 
takes many years of schooling to 
qualify as a rider or an instructor. 
The University Equestrian Center 
is one of a very few places in 
Tennessee that offer lower level 
dressage instruction." 

Looking Inward 

Dean Urban T. Holmes of the 
School of Theology thinks the 
current crop of seminarians tends 
to be more reflective, institution- 
ally oriented, and concerned for 
the spiritual life. "They are look- 
ing inward," Dean Holmes says, 
"trying to find out what is going 
on inside themselves. There is a 
spectrum to this kind of response. 
It ranges from wanting some time 
alone to the affirmation of a coun- 
ter-culture. I believe they are all 
more thoughtful than they were a 
few years ago." The dean expres- 
ses regret at what appears to be a 
retreat from social action. "I am 
all for an authentic spiritual life," 
he says, "but I think the authen- 
ticity of the spiritual life can be 
judged by whether it leads into 
the world. I hope this will become 

New Directions 

Dr. Charles Winters, professor of 
dogmatic theology in the School 
of Theology, was on the staff of a 

Andrew Lytle at Supply Store autograph party 

two-week school held in Kansas 
City in January on "New Direc- 
tions for Churches in Small Com- 
munities." Dr. Winters urged the 
participants to help people "to see 
the power of Jesus acting and 
operating within the Body of the 
Church by practicing praise and 
witness." He stressed that back-to- 
earth movements, withdrawal into 
rigid religious forms, engrossment 
in Jesus movements or charismatic 
movements "can all happen in or 
outside the Church but all can be 

Revised Liturgy Conference 

A conference on the Holy Week 
Rites in the revised liturgy of the 
Episcopal Church was held at the 
School of Theology March 6-8. Dr. 
Marion Hatchett, associate profes- 
sor of liturgies and music at the 
School, was chairman. Visiting 
staff were Dr. Leonel L. Mitchell 
and Dr. William G. Storey of 
Notre Dame University. Dr. Mit- 
chell, an Episcopal priest, is assis- 
tant professor in the department 
of theology at Notre Dame, a 
consultant to the Standing Liturgi- 
cal Commission and a member of 
the drafting committee on Chris- 
tian Initiation. Dr. Storey, a 
Roman Catholic layman, is direc- 
tor of the Liturgical Studies Pro- 
gram at Notre Dame and a consul- 
tant to the International 
Committee on English in the 

Participants discussed the the- 
ological presuppositions of the 
rites, practiced them and examined 
methods of educating the laity in 
their use. 

Chaplains Meet 

Fifteen chaplains of Episcopal 
schools and colleges, including 
Sewanee's, met in New Harmony, 
Indiana, for five days in February 
to formulate strategy. Co-directors 
of the symposium were the Rev. 
John Paul Carter and Dr. Arthur 
Ben Chitty, C'35, heads of the 
schools' and colleges' associations 

The art of campus ministry 
was the major area of discussion. 
The group were in agreement that 
the environment on the church- 
related campus is characterized by 
tension between Christian commit- 
ment and secularism, the latter 
described as the "invisible reli- 
gion" of our time. 

Cello Recital 

All Martha McCrory's cello stu- 
dents—five—performed in recital 
April 28 in the Bishop's Common 
Lounge. The cellists were Reginald 
Rucker, C'77, from Greenwood, 
South Carolina; Dean Taylor, 
C'78, from Eufaula, Alabama; 
John Popper, C'76, from Memphis, 
Tennessee; Peter Lemonds, C'76, 
from Atlanta, Georgia; and William 
Patrick, an instructor at Middle 
Tennessee State University. James 
Harris, T'75, was the principal 

Miss McCrory, who is director 
of the Sewanee Summer Music 
Center as well as associate profes- 
sor of music in the College, is 
preparing for a better-than-ever 
summer for the increasingly re- 
nowned SSMC. 


A lively new sound, much admired 
in the age groups qualified for that 
admiration, is being produced by 
Billy DuBose (William Porcher 
DuBose III, C'77, from Chatham, 
New Jersey) and his Sewanee 
Syncopators. Among concerts this 
year was one in Guerry Garth 
sponsored by Sewanee Arts for the 
cystic fibrosis fund, and fore- 
ground music for a reception of 
the regents at Fulford Hall in

poet Peter Fellowes and Nobel 
Laureate economist Wassily Leon- 
tief as a duPont Lecturer were 
only some of the visiting attrac- 
tions at Sewanee during a two- 
week span in April. 

Leontief, who added Russian 
charm to greatness of stature and 
clarified his arcane subject with 
similes drawn largely from auto- 
mobiles ("the economy is a Cadil- 
lac engine on a Volkswagen 
chassis, and when the road is full 
of holes we have to improvise 
devices to keep it from tumbling 
over"), may have offered the most 
significant message given here since 
Toynbee's and Gamow's. His 
Nobel award was in recognition of 
a lifework preparing a mathemat- 
ical model of the economy, now 
handling 1,500 separate variables 
that can be fed into a computer. 
On the invitation of a Senate 
committee, he and colleagues of 
his selection have prepared a bill 
for economic planning which he 
expected to be presented soon. 
Leontief declared Keynesian eco- 
nomics to be too simplistic for the 
nation's requirements. "Its great 
advantage," he said, "is that it is 
very easily explained, even to pres-

Last ROTC Commissioning 

Sewanee's Air Force ROTC unit 
was scheduled this Commencement 
to commission its last nine cadets, 
including its first and only girl, 
Andrea Lang. 

The phase-out was occasioned 
by the Air Force's reduced need 
for officers, Lt. Col. John Jarrell, 
the unit's last commander, says. 
The minimum annual number of 
graduates required to keep a unit 
has been ten, but Col. Jarrell 
points out that this requirement 
has often been waived in the past. 
"Though our numbers have always 
been small, the quality has been 
high— the quality of the Sewanee 
graduate is high— and I believe the 
Air Force recognizes this, or they 
would have closed us out long 
before this." 

Col. Jarrell, C'50, is retiring 
and he and his family will con- 
tinue to live at Sewanee. "This is a 
wonderful place to live," he says. 
Sgt. i Dillard Layne will go to Co- 
lumbus AFB in Mississippi. 

Art on the Road 

Richard Duncan of the College art 
faculty has put together a traveling 
exhibit of student work in print- 
making, including etchings, litho- 
graphs, screen and mixed media. 
Some use photographic techniques 
and some are engravings on plexi- 
glas. The thirty-five prints by 
twenty students were shown at the 
University of Tennessee in Chatta- 
nooga in March, and an exhibit of 
works by their students was shown 
in the Bishop's Common here at 
the same time. 

Duncan is busy arranging simi- 
lar exchanges with other universi- 
ties in the South and Midwest. Dr. 
Edward Carlos is doing a tour of 
student photographic work, and 
this summer the whole department 
will arrange a show including the 
work of both students and faculty 
in all the studio areas of instruc- 
tion—painting, sculpture, print- 
making, photography and drawing, 
and exhibitions of this will be 
promoted beginning in the fall. 

Mr. Duncan, who has partici- 
pated in sixty-five major exhibi- 
tions throughout the country, 
forty-six of them competitive— he 
has won twenty-one awards for 
drawings and prints— says that ex- 
port of student work is rare and 
the traveling program has to break 
new ground. "We are proud of the 
work of our students and want to 
make it known. Exhibiting also 
encourages professionalism among 
them," Duncan says. "We ask the 
colleges with whom we exchange 
to accept one faculty work along 
with the students' and to send us 
their faculty work. This demon- 
strates the quality we believe the 
students are achieving."

Sewanee had a military bias from its earliest days. 
In the second year the college was open— 
1870— students asked to form a drill company, 
and those not entitled to gowns wore uniforms. 
The Grammar School, whose name changed in 
1909 to the Sewanee Military Academy, had 
become a separate department in 1869 with 
General Josiah Gorgas, chief of ordnance of the 
Confederacy, as its head. This Gorgas became 
Vice-Chancellor in 1872 and his son William 
Crawford, '75, became surgeon general of the 
U.S. Army in World War I.

On the early faculty were two other CSA 
generals, Francis Asbury Shoup and Edmund 
Kirby-Smith, both buried in the University ceme- 
tery. Two chancellors were generals— Leonidas 
Polk and Ellison Capers. 

The Air Force was the latest arrival of the 
military services on the Sewanee campus and the 
last to endure. It was preceded by army units in 
the nineteenth century, whose members drilled 
with Enfield rifles furnished by the State of 
Tennessee. In 1893 the college abandoned and 
the preparatory department continued the uni- 
form. In World War I Sewanee sent an ambulance 
unit to France before America's entry, and then 
the Student Army Training Corps was in the 
process of producing officers when the armistice 

World War II found a Naval officer unit on 
the scene, whose 'enrollment of 700 students in 
1943-45 probably prevented total suspension of 
college life. 

The outbreak of the Korean War and the 
urgency of the draft made a military unit 
essential to the maintenance of the college in the 
early 1950s. The Air Force ROTC was begun in 
1951, after successful negotiations by Navy Cap- 
tain Wendell F. Kline. The first commanding 
officer, pictured in stained glass in the narthex of 
the chapel, was Lt. Col. W. Flinn Gilland, and the 
popularity of the unit was shown by the enroll- 
ment: 221 signed up out of a student body of 
432. Robert Mumby was the first senior to win a 
commission as second lieutenant. 

In 1956 the Sewanee unit was assigned its 
own plane and the following year the air strip, 
which had been sod, was paved, again largely 
through the efforts of Navy Captain and pilot 
Wendell Kline. A hangar large enough for six 
planes was dedicated. 

Col. Gilland was the first of a succession of 
imaginative officers to head the corps. The band 
and drill team went to Mardi Gras. The sabre drill 
team appeared on national television. The annual 
parade and award ceremony on Hardee Field 
were a high point of the year, with honorary 
colonels George M. Baker and William W. Lewis 
heading a long list of Sewanee favorites embraced 
by the unit. For several years Lt. Col. Leslie 
McLaurin offered flight instruction at Jackson- 
Myers Field. 

Over the years Sewanee has commissioned 
170 Air Force second lieutenants. Air Force 
prizes were top campus honors, not only during 
the Korean War but until the last days of the 
Vietnam conflict. No anti-Air Force demonstra- 
tions marred the University-military relationships 
during the late sixties when riots became com- 
mon elsewhere. 

When Col. P. A. Johnson, Air Force ROTC 
chief for Sewanee's area, inspected in 1952, he 
said, "Sewanee has done more in turning over 
leadership of the corps to the cadets than any 
other school I have visited." 

Early quarters for Rotcy were in the frame, 
war-surplus building christened Palmetto Hall 
after the residence occupied by the Tuckers 
before they moved to the Tuckaway site. When 
the size of the unit was reduced to approximately 
fifty cadets in the late sixties, the offices were 
moved to lower Carnegie Hall and the building 
translated across the tracks to become the Sewa- 
nee Youth Center. The site was cleared for the 
Burwell Garden which today enhances the beauty 
of Shapard Tower. 

It can truly be said that every commanding 
officer and most military instructors fell in love 
with Sewanee. Col. Sam Whiteside's daughter 

married a Sewanee graduate, and Col. Jose] 
Powell returned from South America to becou 
superintendent of the Emerald-Hodgson Hospiti 
The first Sewanee alumnus to head the corps w 
the one to whose lot it fell to phase it out, I 
Col. John Jarrell, who had played football und 
Coach William C. White. 

With the conversion of SMA to non-milita 
status in 1971 and the departure of the Air Fot 
ROTC in 1975, the campus of the University 
the South was without military life for the fii 
time since the second year of its existence. Ti 
Air Force left with honor, the victim of a ne 
for larger campuses from which to draw i 
enrollees. The "five traditions" comprising tl 
Sewanee character referred to in Reconstructs 
at Sewanee— the military, the Oxonian, the clas 
cal, the Southern, and the Episcopal— ha 
become four.

program in collaboration with another area a

Alumni Council Starts Waves 

Lett to right at the Alumni Council: Martin Tilson, Jr., Brad Whitney, Robert 
Ayres, Reginald Helvenston. 

"Any college president who does 
not talk about money in these 
times is either afraid to or is 
lying," Vice-Chancellor J. Jeffer- 
son Bennett told fifty class and 
club chairmen assembled for the 
annual Alumni Council meeting in 
the Bishop's Common lounge 
March 8. "I don't fall in either 

His talk keynoted the session 
given over by Associated Alumni 
president Humphreys McGee, 
A'42, C'49, to what he termed the 
most important thing at Sewanee 
now— the need to raise a million 
dollars in budget-applicable gifts 
and grants this year to maintain 
the University's academic strength. 

At the Friday night banquet 
the evening before, the group heard 
Smith Hempstone, C'50, H'69, 
Washington Star editorial writer 
and nationally syndicated column- 
ist, call for a renaissance of stan- 
dards and an "extremism of the 
center." Also at the banquet at 
the Sewanee Inn the Hall Trophy 
for improvement in class giving 
was awarded the class of 1973, of 
which Margaret Ford of Dallas is 

In addition to the Vice- 
Chancellor, speaking to the need 
for greatly increased alumni giving 

at the Saturday session were 
William U. Whipple, vice-president 
for development, and Robert M. 
Ayres, C'49, H'74, chairman of 
the Million Dollar Program. Dr. 
Morse Kochtitzky, C'42, H'70, 
former chairman and regent, join- 
ed Marcus L. Oliver, director of 
annual giving, in explaining the 
framework of the MDP organiza- 
tion by cities and "role-playing" 
to illustrate how the drive worked 
in Nashville. 

The group was greatly moved 
by the presentation of Robert 
Ayres, who told of his motivations 
for accepting the chairmanship of 
the Million Dollar Program, devo- 
ting a year out of his business 
career to the work and to world 
relief, and initiating and helping 
fund the $100,000 challenge grant 
to add one dollar for every two of 
increased unrestricted giving (see 
p. 1). 

Unscheduled remarks of Brad 
Whitney, C'70, also evoked a 
warm response. He stressed that 
even a student whose parents pay 
full tuition is still subsidized for 
more than half the amount of his 
Sewanee education. "We ought to 
put that in all our publications, 
including the Sewanee News," 
Whitney said. "The University 

ought to put it on receipts for 
tuition payments. I feel obliged as 
a debt of honor to give the Uni- 
versity $12,000 in my first twenty 
years out. Anything beyond that, 

After stating his conviction 
that the state of the University in 
general is as good as it has ever 
been, Vice-Chancellor Bennett had 
explained the subsidy to which 
Brad Whitnev referred. In his dis- 
cussion of the 1975-76 budget, set 
at $10,212,720, he pointed out 
that $3,671,240 anticipated from 
tuition and fees would be supple- 
mented by endowment earnings, 
"from gifts that have come in the 
past"; and that in order to meet 
the budget voluntary unrestricted 
giving during the year would have 
to be increased to at least a 
million dollars. 

"In that instance we travel in 
faith," Dr. Bennett said. "Confi- 
dent faith. I am convinced that 
the Lord wants us here or we 
would not be here. You can all 
recall several periods in the past 
when the very existence of this 
University was in the balance. In 
every instance miraculous things 
occurred. There are two or three 
such miraculous things going on 
now amongst you. 

"You and I are colleagues in 
the ministry of education," Dr. 
Bennett asserted. "Every Sewanee 
student has something happen to 
him while he is here. It is unparal- 
leled, in my mind. I am not 
talking about survival now, but of 
maintenance of vigor, the assur- 
ance that this wonderful intangible 
thing will continue to happen. We 
all know the devotion of the Se- 
wanee alumnus. In spite of the 
grim reality of the present eco- 
nomic situation, if you ask, other 
people will respond to this place 

Associated Alumni president 
Humphreys McGee concluded the 
day's discussion by pointing out, 
"We have all got together with 
other Sewanee men to reminisce, 
'how great it was.' We're all going 
to have to do more than pay lip 
service. Twenty-five per cent of 
our alumni give to the University. 
Sixty-eight per cent of Vander- 
bilt's alumni give, sixty per cent of 
Dartmouth's, fifty-eight per cent 
of Williams', and even fifty per 
cent of Georgia Tech's. 

"It reminds me of when I first 
got out of college and called 
myself a cotton planter. I wasn't 
over anybody. I wasn't even over 
the mules. I want us to get Sewa- 
nee on up over the mules."

Brad Whitney's timely suggestion 
that all students and their parents 
should be kept fully in mind that 
every student is on scholarship for 
at least as much again as he pays in 
tuition recalls the title of a Vander- 
bilt brochure, "Who Pays the Other 

Two-Thirds?" The answer, for every 
private university, is: contributors. 
Past benefactors built up the endow- 
ment, the income from which sup- 
plements tuition year after year. 
Current contributors of large and 
small gifts to the Million Dollar 
Program make up the rest.

The 24-Hour 

Much of education has noth- 
ing to do with courses and 
classrooms. After classes 
and after dinner in a Board- 
ing School, students and 
teachers are in studios, labs, 
lounges, athletic activities — 
on and off campus. 
When students attend local 
schools, their fellow stu- 
dents are from the same 
town, and often have simi- 
lar viewpoints. Only in 
Boarding Schools do they 
learn with students from 
often more than 30 states 
and many foreign countries. 
Somehow, sometime, a girl 
or a boy has to leave home to 
find out who she or he is. 
Sometimes college is time 
enough, but not always. The 
time to invest in education is 
when the need is obvious. A 
24-hour school is simply 
more in every way. 
This attractive alternate in 
education is found Only in 
Boarding Schools. It 
might just be your best 
choice -asa student, as a

In This Corner, 
Still the Champ 

No school in the Southeastern 
Conference supports the variety of 
sports that Sewanee does— ten in 
men's varsity competition, a wide 
spectrum of club, intramural and 
individual sports, with the athletic 
department and the Ski and Out- 
ing Club at the ready to add 
others when interest is shown. 
Ninety-three per cent of all stu- 
dents participate in some phase of 
the athletic program, with twenty- 
five per cent in varsity play and a 
full sixty per cent in intramurals. 
The gym and indoor tennis courts 
are in continual use from 1:00 to 
10:00 P.M. There are nine full- 
time and four part-time coaches in 
the department of athletics, plus a 
number of student assistants. 

The outdoor program has been 
bolstered with the half-time em- 
ployment of Don Rainey (the 
other half of him supervises the 
audio-visual center in the duPont 
Library). Don scheduled nine 
training sessions and trips in the 
areas of backpacking and canoeing 
in April and May, with a Canadian 
canoe trip in the offing for May 
21 to June 13. 

The no-athletic-scholarship 
policy remains unchallenged, and 
many athletes who could get 
scholarships elsewhere elect to pay 
tuition and play at Sewanee, 
where play is still play. 


The Sewanee basketball team 
accepted its first NCAA playoff 
bid this year, and traveled to 
Memphis to meet Miles College in 
the first round of the regional 

Sewanee's disciplined offense 
and defense led Miles most of the 
way through the first half, leading 
by as much as seven points. But 
toward the end of the half, Miles' 
greater size and strength began to 
wear the Tigers down. At the end 
of the half Miles led by 40-32, 
with the final score showing Miles 
ahead by 80-60. 

In the consolation game, an 
emotionally and physically drained 
Sewanee team met the Transyl- 
vania Pioneers. Transylvania leaped 
to an early lead, but the Tigers 
came back to take a 36-35 lead at 
the half. 

The lead changed hands several 
times in the second half, with 
Transylvania leading by one point, 
67-66, with six seconds left in the 
game. Jim Bivens of Transylvania 
was at the line to shoot two free 
throws, and made only one. With 
three seconds left, Sewanee's 
Eddie Krenson put up a 40-foot 
shot which fell off the front of 
the rim at the buzzer. The final 
score was 68-66. 

On Monday after the tourna- 
ment, it was announced that Eddie 
Krenson was chosen as the Most 
Valuable Player for the College

Athletic Conference. Harry Hoff- 
man was also a first team selection 
for All-Conference. 


Sewanee swimmers broke eight 
school records in the College Ath- 
letic Conference championship 
meet held March 7 and 8. Prin- 
cipia won the meet with 187 
points, Centre finished with 149 
points, while Sewanee had 88. 

Richard Wood qualified for the 
NCAA College III division meet as 
he broke three pool, school and 
conference records. He won the 
200-yard individual medley, the 
100-yard backstroke and the 
200-yard backstroke. 

Wood, Pierre Rogers, Stewart 
Scott and Tom McKenna broke 
the school record in the 400-yard 
medley relay, but still finished 
third out of the three teams com- 

Stewart Scott broke school 
records in the 500-yard freestyle 
and the 200-yard butterfly, but 
only finished fourth and third, 

Coach Ted Bitondo had high 
praise for his hard-working team, 
but voiced disappointment over 
lack of support of the team by the 

Bitondo said one of the draw- 
backs which the team had to face 
was the schedule. Several schools 
cancelled meets becaused of lack 
of funds. He also said it was 
difficult to "get up any steam" 
against the Southeastern Confer- 
ence teams, which make up a large 
part of the Sewanee schedule. 

Second Paddle 

For the first time it has not been 
a runaway first, the canoe team 
placed second in the intercollegiate 
competition on the Nantahala Riv- 
er in North Carolina this spring. 
The University of Tennessee was 
first and Georgia State third. 
Coach and philosophy professor 
Hugh Caldwell and Dean Stephen 
E. Puckette raced again with the 


Sewanee's women gymnastics 
teams, winless in dual competition 
all year, captured the top honor in 
the intermediate class at the Ten- 
nessee Gymnastics Tournament 
held at Sewanee. 

Sewanee girls took four of the 
top six places in the uneven paral- 
lel bars. The Sewanee team won 
first place in the balance beam 
competition and took second in 
the floor exercises. 

Carolyn Powers, a freshman 
from Simsbury, Connecticut, won 
first place in the uneven parallel 
bars and second in vaulting. 

Coach Martha Swasey attribu- 
ted her team's late-blooming to 
the fact that the girls had only 
three weeks of practice before 
engaging in their first dual meet. 

Sandy Sanderlin, a junior from 
Waverly, Tennessee, took second 
in the uneven parallel bars, and 
Cathy Ellis, a junior from Nash- 
ville, took third. Nora Frances 
Stone, a sophomore from Colum- 
bus, Mississippi, took third in the 
balance beam. 

Coach Swasey said the team's 
depth and consistency were large 
factors in the win at the state 


The Sewanee lacrosse team got off 
to a slow start against a very 
experienced team representing the 
Atlanta Club in a game that was 
played in four inches of mud. The 
Atlanta team had a 9-1 lead at the 
half, with Coach Arthur Berryman 
deciding to send in his reserves 
during the second half. 

The foul weather in Atlanta 
reminded some of the type of 
weather often found on the Moun- 
tain, with the game finally being 
called because of lightning. 

In their next game against 
Vanderbilt, the Tigers were on the 
losing end of a 5-4 score. "In all 
the years that I've played and 
coached this sport, this is the first 
game I've ever seen where the 
score was 1-0 at the half," Berry- 
man said. Teams usually score in 
double figures, he said. 

There followed a morale-buil- 
ding 16-3 victory over UT— "We 

needed that," said Dr. Berryman— 
but later losses to Vanderbilt and 
Georgia Tech. A trip north 
brought victory over Ball State 
and losses to Cincinnati University 
and Miami of Ohio. 

Electrified Fencers 

Martha Swasey 's fencing team 
journeyed to Vanderbilt this spring 
for an informal three-way meet 
with Vandy and Middle Tennessee 
State. Our fencers were so uptight 
and so hot in the first round that 
sweat caused them to be shocked 
through their metal vests by the 
electronic device used to record 
touches. Galvanized, they won 
three of their matches in the sec- 
ond round. 

Mrs. Swasey noted that this 
was the first meet she had observ- 
ed where all the competing teams 
were coed, with both sexes under 
a single coach. She was the only 
woman among the three coaches 
and probably for much further 
afield. All the foilspersons resolved 
to meet again. 

Body in Worship 

Another coed team, if "team" is 
the word, is that for liturgical 
dance coached by Virginia Black- 
stock. The group performed in St. 
Luke's Chapel at Sewanee and as a 
consequence were invited to take 
part in a service at St. Peter's 
Church in Rome, Georgia, where 
they were received with great 
warmth. They were also invited to 
give a demonstration as part of the 
Commencement exhibit of the fine 
arts department in the Art Gallery. 
All fine arts majors must take 
some dance, either ballet or mod- 
ern, the school to which the litur- 
gical group with its free movement 
belongs. Mrs. Swasey expresses 
pleasure that the physical educa- 
tion department has this interplay 
with fine arts and religion.

The pace quickens with the arrival of April at 
the Academy. Exhortations to write for the 
literary magazine or to compete for the Andrew 
Lytle Medal keep interested students busy. 
Cameras appear and pictures are snapped to make 
the yearbook or personal scrapbooks more 
memorable. Measurements for tuxedos are taken, 
reminding us that Commencement Weekend is 
not far off. 

Included in April's calendar is a gathering for 
Fathers' Weekend, April 18-20. On the agenda are 
a golf tournament, tennis matches, just plain 
fishing, and hiking on top of the Mountain as 
spring unfolds. 

The following week will feature the Sewanee 
Academy Players in The Winslow Boy, a drama 
by Terrence Rattigan, and the second production 
for the drama group this year. Following on the 
heels of the successful and highly polished fall 
production of Born Yesterday, director Frank 
Thomas has chosen a play which should have a 
familiar setting to players and theater-goers 
alike— a boarding school. 

The marine biology group, headed by biology 
instructor James Banks, is spending a week at 
Florida State Marine Laboratory near Sopchoppy, 
Florida, in mid-April. The group this year in- 
cludes David Lodge, Chuck Russell, Johnson 
Hagood, Harvey Wilson, Miller Puckette and Bill 
Kershner. Studies will include biological chemis- 
try and physical oceanography. Jim Banks will 
direct the group assisted by Bill Terry of the 
physics department. 

Known to the Academy for twelve years as a 
chemistry instructor and for the past four as 
director of our outing program, James Scott is 
climbing a new mountain this summer. (See 
article on p. 7). After being approached by 
members of the old-line sports equipment firm 
Abercrombie and Fitch to direct the Blazed Trail 
Climbing School here, Jim flew to New York to 
talk things over. He quite frankly asked the 
executives, "Why me, a small-town chemistry 
instructor, and why Sewanee?" 

A and F representatives replied that the 
unspoiled location situated outside of the climb- 
ing mainstream was exactly what they had been 
searching for for several years. Sewanee scores 
again, and the Academy looks forward to exten- 
ding Southern hospitality to new friends. 

Results from the statewide high school mathe- 
matics contest for the University of the South 
test center bring cause for rejoicing. The Sewanee 
testing center drew 170 contestants in five 
categories of mathematics. Out of twenty 
Sewanee Academy students taking the test, 
thirteen placed in the top ten of their categories 
for the middle Tennessee region. The number one 
position in the Advanced Topics category was 
won by Miller Puckette, a junior at the Academy 
and son of the dean of the College, Stephen 
Puckette. Miller was invited to participate in the 
Fourth U.S.A. Mathematical Olympiad along with 
about 100 students from all over the nation on 
May 6. 

While out for a Sunday drive, I happened past 
the Stone tablet that marks the way to the 
Sewanee Academy. Sprawled in front of the 
monumental stone, rubbing away at it, was a boy 
so engrossed in his work that he didn't look up. 
He was cleaning off the red paint (put there by 
some prankster last semester) with paint thinner 
he'd borrowed from the art department. Thanks, 
Will Kern!

Of Their Own Design 

The Academy's Rosie brings in the world of fabrics. 

The cut film is treated with a 
solvent which affixes it to the silk 
screen and removes the backing. 
Guidelines are ruled on the pre- 
washed fabric to be printed. 
During printing, these are lined up 
with register marks on the screen 
frame so that each motif will 
interlock with the next. This is 
particularly important when regis- 
tering more than one color. 

These fabrics have been used 
as wall hangings, pillows, skirts, 
tablecloths, shirts and graduation 
dance dresses. And if you don't 
know how to sew, another Interim 
course takes care of that. But 
that's another story. 

"She's Fun." 

Rosie Paschall has headed the 
Academy art department for three 
years, and loves her work and the 

Earth-brown mushrooms on a 
sunny yellow background, or 
bright green parrots in an inter- 
locking design on white— these 
march briskly on original fabrics 
designed by students at the Sewa- 
nee Academy. 

The course in fabric design has 
been offered for two years now to 
interested students during the 
two-week period between semes- 
ters called the Interim, or Master- 
Students term. As far as can be 
determined, fabric design is a 
unique offering on the prep school 

During the annual break from 
the regular academic schedule, stu- 
dents may work exclusively on a 
special project of their own choos- 
ing (some forty projects were pur- 
sued by the school's 190 students 
this year). Art students, for exam- 
ple, can follow a project from 
design through the steps of silk 
screen, tie-dye, batik or fabric 
painting on to the finished pro- 
duct—an original fabric. 

"It is fun watching them 
work" says Rosemary Paschall, 
Academy art instructor. "They be- 
gin by being so shy and uptight 
about making a mistake, and end 
up showing a new-found freedom 
and confidence about what they 
are doing." 

The first step is to learn a bit 
about the history of ornament, 
and color harmonizing. The stu- 
dents then practice repeat patterns 
from simple geometric shapes. 
They study and draw the simple, 
rhythmic lines of live plants and 
decide on colors. The picture se- 
quence accompanying this article 
shows the actual steps as the stu- 
dent works on the fabric.

more well behaved and attentive 
than earlier ones. Never having 
taught before, she came in "cold" 
to clay fights and all sorts of 
things. But she has never lost her 
high expectations of students and 
tends to "nag a lot," to quote her 
own expression. When students 
were queried, one said, "She 
doesn't nag a lot, she encourages. 
She's fun to be around because 
she's so happy." Another student 
says, "Mrs. Paschall has the most 
infectious laugh in the school and 
it's a relief to come to art after all 
the heavy courses." 

Sewanee might never have got 
Rosie at all had it not been for 
the good sense of a young Rhodes 
Scholar. Douglas D. Paschall, a 
1966 graduate of the University of 
the South, was a Rhodes Scholar 
at Christ Church College, Oxford^ 
for three years. There he met and 
married Rosemary Souter, who 
was then doing free-lance commer- 
cial art and window display work. 
He returned to Tennessee to teach 
English, first at the University of 
Tennessee at Chattanooga and now 
in the College at Sewanee. The 
Paschalls have one daughter, 
Rachel, who is four. 

Rosie's artistic sense had been 
awakened many years before 

when, at the age of three, she was 
taken by her parents from England 
to the coast city of Durban, South 
Africa. She stayed nineteen years 
and remembers it as a lush and 
beautiful land. After high school 
she entered Natal College for Ad- 
vanced Technological Education. 
She graduated with a double 
major— one in commercial art, the 
other in fabric design. 

Soap Lost Out 

Her graduating class put on a 
public exhibition of their work, all 
unsigned, and were examined by 
the government as well as their 
teachers. Many firms sent represen- 
tatives to the exhibition and Lever 
Brothers picked the work of Rose- 
mary Souter, not knowing who 
she was. 

"They were surprised that I 
wasn't a man," Rosie says. She 
didn't take the job with Lever 
Brothers but went home instead. 
Upon return to England she 
worked one year for Sanderson's, 
England's largest fabric and wall- 
paper company, for their central 
studio in London, designing wall-

young Nigerian, in adire, a form of

A batik pattern is drawn

her knowledge of art forms in 
Sewanee. Last year she worked 
with a local potter on hand-built 
and hand-thrown pottery and on 
making up glazes, in preparation 
for the new kiln which was pur- 
chased for the Academy art de- 
partment. Rosie hopes to continue 
ceramics work while in England 
summer after next. She has also 
taken a drawing course and ad- 
vanced oil painting from Edward 
Carlos, art professor in the 

Art Is For Everyone 

One can conclude, then, that 
Rosie believes in continuing educa- 
tion in one's own discipline. 
Another strong belief is that there 
lurks some artistic creativity in 
everybody. Some students wander 
into her classes— she teaches five a 
day— with a defeatist attitude. 
Rosie's way of dealing with this is 
to start a new student off with a 
collage, perhaps limiting the choice 
of colors to three. After the col- 
lage, the student is asked to paint 
the same design, but abstractly, or 
to change the size and include a 
pop art effect. 

The student begins to discover 
that he does have artistic ability, 
and he then moves into various 
forms of printing (twelve different 
types are offered). At this point in 
the semester students have 
branched out into various areas of 
interest, such as woodcarving, silk 
screening, batik, ceramics, etc. The 
advanced student is given many 
opportunities to draw in mixed 
media, to paint and sculpt from 
live models. Small wonder that 

from soon after the art room 
doors are opened at 7:30 A.M. 
until they are closed, Rosie is 
seldom alone. 

Like most teachers, Rosie de- 
rives particular satisfaction from 
former students who care to drop 
by for a visit. Some are now 
majoring in art in college and want 
to share their enthusiasm for the 
subject with their former guide in 
the world of art. For such as 
these, the doors are always open.

Good Rackets— Janet Holmes, Bowman Turlington 

At this writing it's too early in 
the season to tell which way the 
ball is going to bounce in the 
spring sports of baseball, tennis 
and golf. The baseball diamond is 
in excellent shape due to the 
efforts of Coach Mark Tanksley, 
and of those unfortunate enough 
to make the work list. The tennis 
team is suffering from the poor 
condition of the courts, but the 
golf team has lost only one match 
out of ten as they take aim on a 
close-to-flawless season. Track is 
staging a comeback at the Acad- 
emy under the able coaching of a 
former track champion, Denis 


The Sewanee Academy base- 
ball team is captained by juniors 
John Patton and Ernie Sibley. The 
two-year lettermen with fellow 
junior two-year letterman Eric 
Baker round out the pitching staff. 

Senior Terry Gunn fills in at 
shortstop, third base, first base or 
center field when Sibley, Patton or 
Baker are doing their pitching 
chores. The team is rounded out 

by first hitter Joey Finley playing 
at third or first base. Steady Chip 
Carrier keeps the pitcher on an 
even keel as catcher for the team. 
Ninth-grader Keith Clay rounds 
out the infield at second base and 
sophomores Bill Harrison, Shawn 
Cogburn, John Barbre and fresh- 
man Mark Gillespy share the out- 
field duties with John Patton. 

The excellent hitting of the 
team is started by Finley, followed 
by Gunn, Patton and clean-up man 
Ernie Sibley. A competitive spirit 
and a strong belief in one anoth- 
er's ability has given the team a 
3-3 record to date in a really 
tough baseball league. The team is 
managed by Pete Hannah, athletic 
director at the Academy. 


Two weeks into the season 
finds the Academy golf team off 
to a winning start. After nine 
matches, all on the road, the 
record stands at nine wins to one 
loss, and Coach Peyton Cook feels 
that the prospects for a highly 

Record Setter — John Patton 

successful season look bright with 
the distinct possibility of surpas- 
sing last year's record of 22-3. 

Returnees from the successful 
team of last year are the heart of 
the 1975 team. Senior Steve Nich- 
ols and juniors Neal Brown, Tom- 
my Ham and John Dixon have 
played exceptionally steady golf 
for so early in the season, with 
senior Paul Galbraith filling in for 
one match. Younger members who 
show promise for the future are 
sophomores Bud Benning and 
John Barbre and freshmen Bill 
Carter and Chris Cook. 

One highlight of the season 
will be the first annual Sequatchie 
Valley Conference golf tournament 
scheduled at the Sewanee Golf 
Club on Saturday, May 3. The 
four top players should do exceed- 
ingly well in that match as well as 
the district tournament on May 


The Sewanee Academy tennis 
teams have become victims of the 
tennis boom. Because of the grow- 
ing popularity of the sport, the 
teams are having difficulty finding 
practice time. The asphalt courts 
at the Academy are too cracked to 
use and the clay courts require 
two days to dry after a rain. 

The girls' team is doing well, 
with two wins and one loss. The 
wins were over Columbia Military 
Academy 7-2 and St. Andrew's 
6-0. The loss was to Tullahoma 

The boys have lost four in a 
row, 4-5 to Tullahoma, 0-9 to 
Putnam County, 4-5 to Castle 
Heights and 4-5 to St. Andrew's. 
Tullahoma and St. Andrew's had 
not posted a regular season win 
since 1973. The last loss to Castle 
Heights was in 1972. 

The season has just begun, and 
Coach Ed England believes his 
team will still be a winner. 


The Academy is fielding a par- 
tial track team with some ten boys 
out this year. Coach Denis Flood, 
a former member of the Tennessee 
NCAA track champions, is coach- 
ing the team. The trackmen are 
competing primarily in the running 
events this season. Senior Bill 
Kershner is competing for his third 
year in the high jump and has high 
hopes in the State District. 

Track team members are Pey- 
ton Cook, Rob Dower, Bill 
Downs, Robert Ellis, Ronnie 
Shaw, Allison Stratton, Clyde Wes- 
trom and Maury Wingo. 



David Camp 

Professor of chemistry in the College 

In this brief rundown I shall give a few highlights 
of the impact on me of questions raised by 
atomic energy and point out some source materi- 
al from which you can learn something about it 
if you wish. 

There is some question as to when the 
nuclear age began. Some of us associate it with 
Marie Curie, the person who first isolated a 
radioactive element. Others say Bequerel discov- 
ered radioactivity. Others say Bequerel was led 
into this work by the discovery of X-rays by 
Roentgen. Others might say Roentgen could not 
have made his discovery if he hadn't had a 
cathode ray tube. That takes us back to William 
Crooks, or the German physicist Heinrich Geiss- 
ler, who is supposed to have made the first 
cathode ray tube. 

Since I can't say when the nuclear age began, 
I will say something about my first knowledge of 
nuclear fission. Nuclear fission was first reported 
by the German physicists Otto Hahn, Strassmann, 
and Meitner in early 1939, just before the 
outbreak of the Second World War. I didn't learn 
about it at that time and it wasn't until nearly a 
year later that William Guy, a teacher of chemis- 
try at William and Mary, came to our class in 
advanced inorganic chemistry very excited. He 
also apparently was late learning about nuclear 
fission, but I remember his telling us about this 
discovery. He illustrated 'with neutron bombard- 
ment of Uranium-235 to give barium, krypton 
and several other neutrons as products of that 
particular fission. He said this was discovered in 
Germany. If enriched uranium (uranium enriched 
in 235) should become available to the Germans 
they would blast the British off the map. 

William Guy had been a loyal subject of His 
Majesty the King, and he was disturbed. That was 
during the period of the phony war. You young 
people probably don't know what the phony war 
was. It was the time between the declaration of 
war by Britain and France against Hitler and the 
Hitler invasion of the Low Countries. A few 
months later the invasion of France began. 
William Guy was more disturbed than ever. He 
pointed out that one of these fissions releases 
energy in the order of a million electron volts. 
The chemical bond has an energy on the order of 
magnitude of one electron volt. Just a few 
pounds would totally destroy the city of London. 

I heard little more about the subject for 
several years. It wasn't until August 6, 1945, that 
the nuclear fission bomb was exploded over 
Hiroshima. Shortly after that, a very elegant and 
concise description of the subject of nuclear 
fission was published in book form. It is com- 
monly known as the "Smythe Report," and the 
title of the book was Atomic Energy for Military 
Purposes. Within a few months following that 
event, more and more news came out about the 
Manhattan Project, which had developed this 

fission bomb. It was begun by a letter from 
Albert Einstein to Franklin Roosevelt, asking that 
the United States begin research leading to the 
development of such a bomb. Einstein was afraid 
that the Nazis were at that time working on a 
bomb and he wanted something to counteract it. 
At the end of the war Einstein was terrified 
about the possible results of what he had set in 
motion. One of Einstein's biographers says that at 
the time of Franklin Roosevelt's death there were 
two letters from Albert Einstein on the Presi- 
dent's desk urging and pleading that the United 
States not drop nuclear weapons on Japanese 
cities. The letters were never read by Roosevelt. 
Truman ignored them; and, I believe, bragged 
about the fact that after the explosion of such a 
bomb he was able to get a good night's sleep. 

Shortly after the end of World War II a group 
of scientists who had worked on the development 
of that bomb started an organization called the 
Federation of American Scientists. I had no part 
in the planning, but I believe I'm classified as a 
charter member; and that is one of the causes 
that I've managed somehow or other to support 
through .the years. It has published what I think 
is the best summary of the impact of nuclear 
energy on our society. It was formerly called the 
Bulletin of Atomic Scientists. It now has Science 
and Public Affairs added to the title. (Incident- 
ally, in the March, 1974, issue the lead article is 
called "Deterrence Gone Mad.") These men in 
1945 were determined that their discovery should 
be used intelligently. Einstein's plea at that time 
was that it is such a terrifying weapon that the 
world must unite on at least this one thing, that 
we are going to control the development of 
nuclear energy. 

One thing he advocated was that the United 
States share its knowledge of this weapon with 
the Soviet Union. Einstein and those who had 
worked on that bomb knew that there was no 
secret, that physicists all over the world knew the 
principle involved. It was merely an engineering 
problem for the Soviet Union or anyone else to 
develop such a weapon. 

Another type of weapon was being developed 
shortly after the war, the hydrogen bomb. The 
energy involved in such a weapon is much greater 
than that of the fission bomb. The hydrogen 
bomb, or the fusion bomb, was first exploded by 
the United States in 1952. The mood of the 
people in this country during that period was 
that we had a secret, that we were just so smart 
that the Soviets couldn't possibly develop such a 
weapon, and that all we had to do was catch 
those spies that were giving the Soviets the 
secrets. In 1953 the Soviet Union exploded a 
similar device. That one factor probably more 
than any other put the American people in a 
mood to accept some of the wild talk of Joe 

From time to time the University Forum 
has brought together faculty speakers from 
different disciplines to address a general 
problem. In light of the continuing time- 
liness of this forum held a year ago, we 
share transcripts of the speeches made to a 
student audience. 

In May of this year Russell Train, H'73, 
Administrator of the Environmental Pro- 
tection Agency, announced that the 
allowable amount of radiation in the atmos- 
phere had been reduced to 25 mr a year.

Associate professor of physics in the College 

There are two methods by which one can 
obtain energy through nuclear reactions. The 
simpler method is the fission reaction in Fig. 1. A 
particle called a neutron hits a nucleus of 
uranium. At first the neutron becomes absorbed 
by the uranium, but it produces an instability 
and eventually the whole thing breaks up, and it 
' breaks up into several different kinds of pieces. 
The two large pieces that you see going off to 
the left and to the right in the diagram are called 
fission fragments. There is another outgoing par- 
ticle, an alpha particle. It has the helium symbol 
next to it. Three neutrons are also produced. It's 
from these particles .that we get the energy in a 
nuclear reaction. These fission fragments are 
unstable. They are radioactive and they will 
decay, and in doing so they will emit various 
kinds of radiation. 

There are three kinds of radiation: alpha, beta 
and gamma. The energy that is associated with 
these radiations— the helium particle and the 
neutrons— is used in a nuclear power plant. We 
started at the top in Fig. 1 with a neutron 
coming in and there are three neutrons coming 
out. Some of these neutrons must hit other heavy 
nuclei and keep the process going. If you have 
too many of them the whole thing is just going 
to keep on expanding and expanding, and it will 
be' a runaway process. On the other hand, if you 
have too few, then the process cannot maintain 

The idea, then, is to institute some sort of 
system in which the number of neutrons, those 
little particles going off and eventually hitting 
another uranium nucleus, is just right. So what 
one does is introduce some more materials, 
complicate the structure, and make a reactor. 

We ordinarily think that the faster something 
travels the more effective it is. It is just the 
opposite in this particular case. The neutrons 
have to be fairly slow before they stand much of 
a chance of interacting with the uranium. Those 
three neutrons at the bottom of Fig. 1 are pretty 
fast, so you have to do something to slow them 
down to make them more effective. There are 
one or two other things to be done here. But you 
must put in some sort of device which will 
control the number and another device which will 
slow them down. 

Nuclear fission was the basic principle behind 
the construction of the atomic bomb. Fusion was 
the principle behind the construction of the 
hydrogen bomb, combining some very light nuclei 
into a larger nucleus to release energy in the same 
way. This is nuclear fusion. It is more compli- 
cated because it requires the simultaneous pres- 
ence of three characteristics for a controlled 
process, and they are all rather hard to achieve. 
There have to be a whole lot of particles 
together, they have to be confined in a small 
space at an extremely high temperature, and for a 
certain period of time. Until this is accomplished 
you cannot have controlled nuclear fusion. This 
has not yet been achieved. We had uncontrolled 
fusion in the hydrogen bomb, but controlled 
fusion has yet to be worked out. 

The timetable that was reported by the 
Atomic Energy Commission to the Congressional 
committee in the fall of 1973 indicated that the 
scientific feasibility of the controlled fusion pro- 
cess could be demonstrated between 1980 and 
1982. A test reactor could be built in the early 
'80s and a demonstration power reactor could 
finally be completed in the mid- '90s, and so 

fusion power, although it will perhaps be a reality 
in the twenty-first century, does not seem to be 
one we should consider for the creation of energy 
within the next generation. 

Since that is the case I won't talk any more 
about fusion power. I'd like to explain a little 
more about the construction of a reactor and 
why people are concerned about some of the 
reactors that are in use. Uranium has to be put in 
aluminum cylinders (Fig. 2). These have to be 
fairly thick and have to be very tight so there is 
no leakage of the uranium. These are shown by 
the dotted lines in the center of the various 
blocks in the diagram. 

The blocks themselves are graphite. I indi- 
cated that you have to slow down the neutrons 
that get out in order to make them more 
effective and graphite is a material which will do 
this. Water will also do the same thing. There are 
two kinds of water that can be used. Water is 
composed of two elements, hydrogen and oxy- 
gen. "Heavy hydrogen" or deuterium, a special 
isotope of hydrogen, makes what is called "heavy 
water," which is very effective in slowing down 
these neutrons. Ordinary water will work too. In 
reactors, then, there are rods containing fuel 
surrounded by some sort of moderator. It could 
be graphite or water. Then there are_control rods 
which can move in and out, that absorb the 
neutrons and control the number of neutrons 
that are actually involved in the reaction. 

Probably the most common kind of reactor is 
one which uses water for the moderator because 
water will also cool the reactor, and in the 
production of these fission products and all the 
radiation, a great deal of heat is generated (Fig. 
3). Water can be circulated through a set of pipes 
that serves as the moderator and also carries away 
the heat. This hot water can then be piped 
through a heat exchanger where it gives its heat 
to some more water. This water then becomes 
steam and can be used to drive a turbine and 
produce electrical power. 

The basic features here look very much the 
same in a fossil fuel reactor. In a fossil fuel 
reactor heated water is converted into steam to 
drive a turbine. The water is heated by burning 
coal or some sort of gas. The difference is in how 
you heat the water to make the steam in a 
nuclear plant. The question is, what problems 
could arise from this? 

The water circulating through the pipes is 
necessary to keep the reactor core cool. Suppose 
there was a break in the pipe where it says 
"water pump" in the diagram. Then the water 
would leak out and the reactor core would get 
very, very hot. There is no danger that you 
would have a nuclear explosion in the sense of a 
bomb, because as water gets drained out the 
moderator that controls the neutrons is removed. 
When that happens the reaction is essentially shut 
off, so there will not be a nuclear explosion. But 
the reactor core will get extremely hot and unless 
you do something within about a minute, it will 
melt and, in the worst of all possible situations, 
will melt through the bottom of the floor. This is 
called a "tunneling-to-China effect." In that case 
there is a strong chance that some of the fission 
fragments in there can escape. Of course this 
would create a great deal of danger not only for 
the people in the plant but for the people in the 
neighboring area. That is one possibility. 

The reactors do have built into them a system 
called the emergency core cooling system. The 
type of accident just described is called a loss-of- 

■ooling accident, and the built-in system is 
jesigned to flood the reactor core immediately 
ivith more water to keep it cool while the break 
n the water line is repaired. Now, how do you 
c now the system will work? You can't just take a 
eactor and smash a pipe in it to see if all this 
fission material is produced. You have to set up 
nathematical models that attempt to describe 
vhat will go on in each of the various stages and 
hen you can predict the behavior of your system 
md its various parts in case of an accident. 

Here is where the controversy comes in. One 
an question whether the models are adequate, in 
making a model and in predicting what is going 
to happen you have to consider the various 
properties of the materials. For example, if the 
;uel rods are exposed to a lot of heat they are 
going to swell, and they might crack. You have 
;o take into account the exact amount by which 
they will swell, the temperature at which they 
will crack, and how much leakage you could 
have. There is some controversy about whether 
the figures which have been used in these models 
are correct. In certain of the figures there has 
been some discrepancy in the results of experi- 
ments performed in the early '60s with others 
performed more recently. This, then, is one area 
where there is currently a great deal of contro- 
versy—over loss-of-cooling accidents and the 
system designed to correct for them. 

Second, even if the reactor is operating 
normally the fission fragments are going to be 
left over. I have said that they are a source of 

; power because they are radioactive and 
decay quite rapidly, but their products are also 
radioactive, and their decay time is much longer. 
We refer to the amount of time over which a 
particular substance would retain most of its 
radioactivity as its half-life. The longer the half- 
iife the longer the period of time the material 
would be dangerous. Some of these fission 
products which are left over will be radioactive 
for months, others for a few hundred years, and 
some on the order of several hundred thousand 
rears. > 

The question is, what do you do with these 
products? They have been stored above the 
ground, but then continual monitoring is neces- 
sary to make sure people don't get near the area 
and that no storm damage, etc., infringes upon 
their security. The question now is, ultimately, 
what are you going to do with them? It has been 
suggested that they be put in salt mines under- 
neath, for example, Kansas and New Mexico. 
These salt mines have been intact and without 
any ground water flow for several hundred 
thousand years. We know this because if there 
lad been any ground water flow in this period it 
would have removed the salt. The mines are 
geologically very stable, they are resistant to 
ompression fractures, they are healed very easily, 
and they can carry away the heat which would 
be generated by these fission products or at least 
absorb it. The problem is, suppose someone tries 
o mine the salt? They had intended to start 
toring them in Kansas, but the salt mines chosen 
were near some other salt mines which were 
oing to be mined, and one of the ways salt is 
oined is by pumping water down to dissolve it. 
fhe governor of Kansas and the people in the 
area objected to this, so they are thinking about 
torage in New Mexico. 

Another alternative is to store the material in 
he polar caps— put it down in Antarctica on top 
J f the glacier there. Since it is giving off heat it 
"ill gradually melt down into the glacier. There 
fe a lot of problems associated with this, 
because eventually it could be pushed out by the 
gradual motion of the glacier and the mechanics 
°f glacier motion are just not well understood. 

Wt have then no generally accepted solution to 
the problems of accident and product disposal. 

A third problem occurs with the development 
of what are called the fast breeder reactors. The 
fuel used in ordinary reactors is Uranium-235, 
and it constitutes about .7% of uranium as it is 
found as an ore. It requires a very expensive 
process, involving a great deal of capital outlay 
(on the order of about a billion dollars for a new 
plant) to enrich it. It is possible to use unen- 
riched uranium but then other complications 
enter, and there is some question about how long 
our uranium supplies would last at the rate at 
which it is projected they would be used. 

There is a type of reactor called a breeder 
reactor in which ordinary uranium, Uranium-238, 
is used as a fuel and Plutonium-239 as a catalyst 
for it. In the reaction more plutonium, the 
catalyst, is produced than was present at the 
start. Essentially uranium is converted to pluto- 
nium, the plutonium supplies energy and more 
plutonium is produced at the same time. This, 
then, would be an excellent source of energy. 

There are some troubles with this, though. 
First, there are three different types of breeder 
reactor which have been proposed and funding 
has gone mostly to what is called a liquid metal 
fast breeder reactor, in which instead of water, 
liquid sodium is used to circulate the heat to the 
heat exchanger. There are other types and there 
is a great deal of controversy about whether or 
not all the funds, or the proportion it has been 
getting, should go to the liquid metal breeder 

The plutonium that is produced in this 
reactor is highly dangerous because it is an alpha 
emitter. Alpha particles can't even penetrate 
human skin, so you'd think they wouldn't be 
very dangerous, but if an alpha emitter comes 
into contact with tissue it can produce a great 
deal of damage. Plutonium is easily dispersed and 
if there were some sort of accident in which a 
sample of plutonium were dispersed into the air, 
became part of an aerosol and were inhaled, then 
it would be extremely dangerous. So any accident 
with a fast breeder reactor using plutonium could 
be extremely dangerous. 

The last problem I'll mention is one of 
security and sabotage hazard. There is a tremen- 
dous amount of controversy about this one at 
present. The question has arisen about what 
would happen if some people were to hijack 
some of this plutonium. Plutonium, which was 
used in the second atomic bomb at Nagasaki, 
could be made into a small nuclear weapon and 
used for blackmail. There is also the possibility 
that someone could go to one of the salt mines 
where the fission fragments have been stored, get 
down with some high explosives, and threaten to 
blow the whole thing up unless some demands 
were met. There has been a good deal of 
controversy about the feasibility of constructing a 
bomb out of plutonium left over from one of 
these reactors or from a breeder reactor, and I 
think the current consensus is that it is possible. 
A rather inefficient weapon could be made 
without a great deal of trouble, although there 
are some people who still disagree with this. 

I would like to summarize by saying that 
these are the main problems associated specif- ■ 
ically with nuclear reactors. There are two sides. 
The Atomic Energy Commission recognizes that 
these problems exist, but they think the solutions 
which have been developed are sufficient to take 
care of them. A sizeable group of people in the 
scientific community disagree with this.

Biological Effects 

H. Malcolm Owen 

Professor of biology in the College 

Even a little over a quarter of a century into 
the atomic age the subject of the biological 
effects of radiation is still an extremely contro- 
versial one. Not only is it controversial, it is very 
complex. The complexity exists because to 
measure the effects of radiation on tissue, bio- 
logical systems, you have to know the properties 
of the isotope, the type of emanations that are 
coming from the nucleus, the energy that is being 
emitted, and you have to know something about 
the type of tissue. 

The effects of radiation on biological systems 
was brought to the attention of man in 1927 by 
H. J. Mueller, who was working at the University 
of Texas using X-rays. Actually any form of 
radiation that produces ionization will have some 
effect on a biological system. The alpha particle 
is the lumbering truck that produces the maxi- 
mum number of ionizations and therefore 
disturbs the balanced, dynamic system that we 
refer to as the cell. Beta is an ionizing particle 
that will only penetrate into a tissue about seven 
millimeters. As Dr. Hart mentioned, a thin piece 
of paper will stop the alpha. It is the alpha that 
is ingested that causes the damage to the organ- 
ism. Gamma is like an X-ray, precisely measured 
like an X-ray. It penetrates the tissue, so that 
external exposure to gamma rays is much more 
hazardous than external exposure to beta rays 
and certainly than to alpha. It is paradoxical that 
the biological effects can be thought of in terms 
of their positive benefits to mankind. Certainly 
the impact of the discovery of nuclear energy has 
had a very positive effect. For example, radioac- 
tive tracers have opened up fields in biochemistry 
and biological sciences that we would never have 
been able to discern under our past systems of 
analysis. The same is true in therapy. Again it is 
paradoxical that we use radiation to cure cancer. 
It has the same effect on a cancerous cell as 
potential damage to a healthy cell. If we can 
focus it on a diseased tissue, we have the 
probability of destroying that tissue or at least 
reducing the effects of the cancer. 

The geneticist is the one who is really 
concerned about the biological effects of radia- 
tion. As Mueller demonstrated in 1927, radiation 
is a mutagenic agent. It can affect the DNA 
molecule, the molecule that carries the code from 
one generation to the next, whether it be at the 
cell within our own bodies, the generations of 
cells or whether it be generations of progeny 
from organisms. 

Mutations must be thought of in two ways. 
One, those mutations which affect the individuals 
themselves. They are somatic mutations. They are 
the mutations that we think of as causing cancer, 
particularly bone cancer or leukemia, or neo-natal 
deaths or even deformities that interrupt the 
developmental systems, that affect only, however, 
the individual and people that are concerned with 
that individual. 

The second type of mutation is a germinal 
mutation, one that affects the gametes, the sex 
cells, the sperm and the egg. These are the ones 
the geneticist looks at, to see what the future 
generations will be if they have a particular 
mutational load. In all cases, emanations from the 
nucleus or from X-rays may transfer their energy 
directly and break chromosomes in cells or they 
may produce a mutation indirectly by ionizing 
other products in the cell, producing free radicals 
which in turn react with the DNA molecules, 
producing a change in that molecule. If that is 
inherited, it is a mutation and the probability is 

that the information stored in that molecule will 
be changed from the normal or existing code. 

The big debate in this subject is whether or 
not there is a threshold. Is there a particular level 
or quantity of radiation to which we can be 
exposed without any probability of damage? This 
is where the present policy of the Atomic Energy 
Commission differs from, I would say, the think- 
ing of the majority of geneticists and biophysi- 
cists. The Atomic Energy Commission is assuming 
at the present time that there- is a particular level 
of radiation that is harmless to man. They have 
set this as 110 milliroentgens a year. When we 
first opened our radioactive isotope laboratory 
here at Sewanee, the allowable dosage was 350 
milliroentgens per year and that was twelve years 
ago, and now we are down to 110 milliroentgens 
per year. Actually many geneticists feel that there 
should be no exposure other than the normal 
background exposure. I do want to reiterate that 
at our present state of knowledge we do not 
recognize any threshold. The mutagenic activity is 
directly proportional to the dose. 

Another factor in biological effects is that 
they are independent of time. For example, it 
takes 450 roentgens' exposure to produce death 
in fifty per cent of a human population exposed 
to whole-body radiation, and this can occur in 
milliseconds or it can occur over a period of sixty 
years. The probability is that fifty per cent of the 
people that get that amount of exposure will die. 
I was reading last week of the commemoration in 
Japan that annually recalls the 6,500 deaths that 
occurred in Hiroshima, and the article said that 
for roughly the twenty-five years since the drop- 
ping of that bomb, one to two hundred deaths 
have occurred every year since then that are 
directly traceable to exposure to radiation. 

£ will continue to look at the negative side of 
the question for the few remaining minutes that I 
have and point out to you what Linus Pauling 
has calculated will be the results if we increase 
our normal background exposure to radiation. 
Added to the possibility of accidents with reac- 
tors is the horrendous thought of further testing 
of atomic weapons and being exposed to fallout. 
He has calculated on a basis of four million 
children born per year that 80,000 have gross 
physical or mental defects attributed to mutated 
genes. He estimates that ten per cent of these 
physical defects result from background radiation. 
If the AEC increases the permissible dose to 170 
milliroentgens per year this would produce 
12,000 children with gross mental or physical 
defects. When asked to examine Pauling's state- 
ments the very eminent human geneticist Zanes 
Crow was uncertain but thought that Pauling was 
wrong by a factor of five, that there would be 
five times as many as Pauling had estimated, if 
we should go to 170 milliroentgens per year. 
There are 12,000 cases of leukemia per year 
this country from all causes, and if we figure 
1,300 of those cases having come from back- 
ground radiation, an additional 170 mr exposure 
per year would produce roughly 15,000 cases of 
leukemia directly attributable to this increased 
radiation. So I think we have a right to be 
concerned about the possibility of additional 
fallout and the possibility of nuclear accidents. 

The primary control of nuclear radiation has 
been relinquished by AEC and given to the states. 
It has been taken out of the hands of the AEC as 
a first regulatory agency and it is essentially now 
a policy-making agency. The incident that hap- 
pened with the Delta flight from New York to 
Atlanta recently is an example of lack of control 

or lack of concern, certainly negligence on the 
part of someone. This has spillovers. We have a 
shipment of one millicurie, a very small amount 
of radioactive material, sitting in the Chattanooga 
airport right now because the Greyhound bus 
line, as the result of that Delta incident, refuses 
to transport radioactive material, so we have to 
drive to Chattanooga to get it instead of picking 
it up in Monteagle. 

The problem is real and I think should be 
handled uniformly by a national agency rather 
than in our state agencies. 


John M. Gessell 

Professor of Christian ethics 

in the School of Theology 

I think that you can tell from the data and 
the information just presented by my three 
colleagues that this subject is bristling with 
ethical issues, I will resist, however, the tempta- 
tion to say that my colleagues have covered them 
because I wish to use my time in my own way. 
But I do want to point out that the material 
which has been presented self-implies a multitude 
of problems requiring sustained ethical reflection. 
Around the first of May, 1974,* the Atomic 
Energy Commission reported from Aiken, South 
Carolina, that a cloud of radioactive tritium gas 
accidentally discharged by the AEC's Savannah 
River plant, "as a result of failure in a process 
line at the production facility," was drifting 
across South Carolina. A spokesman for the AEC 
said that the gas was drifting at an altitude of at 
least 200 feet and would probably dissipate in a 
few days. While the Commission believed that the 
accident would cause no hazard to the public, a 
change in weather conditions could have caused 
"adverse effects of the environment." 

This euphemistic way of describing potential- 
ly serious hazards of ingestion and above-normal 
levels of radiation is typical of AEC's blithe 
approach to its public responsibilities, and its 
disingenuous and less than candid approach to 
public relations. The point is that atomic acci- 
dents, potentially deadly, do happen with an 
ala/ming frequency. 

Once the scientific andT technological prob- 
lems related to the development of nuclear power 
had been solved, ethical questions, which up to 
that point had not been faced, burst like the 
mushroom cloud on the world community. Ethics 
is concerned with the distribution and uses of 
power, and hence includes political considera- 
tions. The nuclear achievement of the United 
States went a quantum jump in available power. 
This created an immediate instability in world 

The McMahan Act of 1946, which established 
the AEC, created a ten-year U.S. atomic energy 
monopoly by forbidding exchange of informa- 
tion, even with our allies. When Russia entered 
the nuclear club the polarity between East and 
West was complete. Other European nations 
became second-rate powers. We have been trying 
to deal with this instability in the international 
field ever since. SALT and the "third summit," 
both indecisive events, are but the latest 

Then there is the question of the distribution 
of nuclear power for non-military purposes, 
especially in relation to the needs of under- 
developed nations. The United States so far has 

been about as imperialistic in its development 
programs as it has- been in its military posture. 
Development on U.S. terms is not much desired 
in the Third World, as Dom Helder Camara, a 
Roman Catholic bishop in Brazil, has been trying 
to tell us in such books as The Church and 
Colonialism: The Betrayal of the Third World. 

Theodore Taylor, a consulting physicist, has 
expressed great concern that isotopes may fall 
into the hands of private individuals or groups, 
thVough carelessness in existing control systems^ 
and be used by them to make atomic bombs for 
idiosyncratic purposes. 

These are some of the immediate questions 
raised by ethical reflection on the uses of nuclear 
power. By and large they remain almost unman- 
ageable. We do not always have sufficient data, 
nor sufficient experience with this new thing. I 
would like to single out three areas which 
demand sustained and serious attention as a result 
of the development of nuclear power. One, 
problems related to the environment and the 
quality of life; fit's, problems related to nuclear 
weapons and the power of national states; and 
three, problems related to the internal politics of 
the United States. 

1. Problems in the ecological area are be- 
coming familiar to all Americans— problems about 
the rising background radiation and permissible 
safe levels for human beings, problems about 
atmospheric pollution from the testing of nuclear 
weapons, as exemplified in the current contro- 
versy between Australia and France, problems 
about the impact of nuclear power plants, and 
problems about the inevitable accidents related to 
the storage and disposal of waste materials. It is 
likely that both the Department of Defense and 
the Atomic Energy Commission are far too 
optimistic and have set inadequate standards for 
safeguarding life. It is a principle of ethics that 
where there is doubt, especially concerning 
human safety, the conservative course must pre- 
vail. It is not permissible to endanger inadver- 
tently the lives of, other human beings. I think- 
that this principle is obvious and can be spelled 
out concerning problems related to the quality of 
the human environment. 

We might, however, focus on a related issue. 
Many people look to the development of nuclear 
energy as a future solution to the shortfall of 
present capacity for energy production. Nuclear 
power plants are often seen as the magic answer 
to the energy dilemma. While this may be true, it 
is far from proven. But the question I raise is 
this: Additional future energy production for 
whom? It is likely that the cost of future energy 
production will be borne heavily by the American 
taxpayer. It is also likely that the tax burden will 
fall more heavily on the poor. It is further likely 
that the major users of future energy production 
will be heavy industry, petro-chemical and metals. 
Is it an inequitable use of national resources to 
subsidize the energy costs of industry when 
twenty million Americans go to bed hungry? 

2. I turn now to the uses of nuclear weapon- 
ry as instruments of international relations. Here 
we enter a sphere that is very treacherous indeed. 
I must confess at once that I have no great 
expertise here, but I can point to some issues 
that require serious, sustained attention. There is 
a lot of illusory thinking going on. Americans for 
too long have ignored the deadly problem of 
nuclear weapons systems, and there has been very 
little ethical reflection on the nature, the politics, 
and the consequences of nuclear warfare. It is 
possible that many Americans have clung to the 
complacent belief that the serious moral dilemma 
related to the employment of nuclear weapons 
can easily be resolved, and that in any case 
political and military success may be used as its 
moral justification. It is almost impossible for 



Americans to realize that the justice of the cause 
would not cancel the moral horror of nuclear 

The reality situation is that one of the 
problems faced by Americans is that they are 
members of a country which has the power and 
the responsibility to prevent a nuclear monopoly 
by any one nation, and to maintain a power 
stability between the nations of the world. As 
Americans, we face the nuclear dilemma and the 
nuclear illusion. The illusion is that the develop- 
ment of greater and greater nuclear weapons 
systems will make us safe. The dilemma is 
demonstrated by the fact that nuclear armaments 
do not, in fact, protect. This has been ably 
demonstrated by Richard Barnet in his book The 
Economy of Death. The protective function of 
the State and its defenses are in greater jeopardy 
today than in 1947, following the passage of the 
National Security Act. 

What about moral action in the nuclear 
context? It is instructive to note the varieties in 
nuclear strategy over the years. Early on there 
was massive deterrence, the "counter-force doc- 
trine" based on the assumption that the West 
would use nuclear weapons first, use them before 
the other side had any weapons at all, or before 
the other side could use theirs: the principle of 
preemption. Next, we had the doctrine of 
"damage limitation," in which our practical and 
strategic defenses would be so arranged that an 
enemy's first strike would do limited damage and 
our ability to retaliate would be relatively unim- 
paired. This was to scare any enemy out of his 
wits and make him think twice before under- 
taking an offensive action. Currently, out of 
SALT, there is emerging a third doctrine, 
"assured destruction," whose partisans are en- 
gaged in a fierce debate with the "damage 
limitation" people. The debate is as mean and 
complicated as any theological argument. The 
"assured destruction" advocates base then- 
strategy on the assumption of the absolute 
necessity for a stable international system. This 
can be achieved only if potential opposing centers 
of power are able to reassure one another of their 
benign intentions. This debate has been brilliantly 
summarized by John Newhouse in his book Cold 
Dawn: Story of SALT. Briefly, the concept of 
"assured destruction" asserts that defending a 
country's population centers with rings of ballis- 
tic missiles is immoral because it diminishes an 
adversary's ability to destroy the defended cities 
in a second retaliatory strike. This undermines his 
confidence and tempts him in a crisis to strike 
first. Paradoxically, stability, a truly divine goal 
in the nuclear age, thus becomes linked to 
secured second-strike offenses on both sides, that 
is, to assured destruction. This is an abstract 
debate, but it is geared toward the practicalities 
of stability and reassurance, and was reflected in 
the recently concluded "third summit." 

In addition to the strategy of reassurance, 
there are proposals for developing the technique 
of unilateral initiative. To be effective in inducing 
the enemy to reciprocate in kind, a unilateral act 

should be disadvantageous to the side making it, 
yet not cripplingly so, and should be clearly 
perceived by the enemy as reducing his external 
threat. Unilateral initiatives are kinds of inter- 
national diplomatic signals directed toward 
making the world a safer place in which to live. 
This position has been ably defended by Erich 

Finally, John C. Bennett has suggested three 
•urgent moral considerations in the nuclear con- 
text. One, it is not possible to justify the use of 
megaton bombs for massive attacks on the 
centers of population of another country, no 
matter what the provocation. Two, we must take 
more seriously than we have so far the effect ol 
large-scale nuclear war on the quality of life in 
the surviving community. Three, the effect of the 
continued and uncontrolled arms race on out 
society is corrupting and dehumanizing, in other 
words, undermines the very principles upon 
which our own society rests. 

3. I turn now to consider the relationship 
between nuclear power and American domestic 
politics. One of the effects of the aggrandizement 
of American power has been to create the 
imperial presidency. Especially in the Nixon 
administration, we have seen the rapid develop- 
ment of the fortress president, fixed at the center 
of American power, remote from his constituents, 
inaccessible and shrouded in secrecy. The connec- 
tions between American nuclear primacy and the 
fortress presidency are not direct, but domestic 
policy is often framed by analogy with foreign 
policy. It cannot have escaped the attention ol 
the President and his advisers, since it has not 
escaped mine, that the power of the presidency is 
calculated in the firepower of nuclear weaponry 
controlled solely by presidential discretion. I 
believe that the Nixon administration was the 
first in American history to use consciously the 
armed might of the nation to attempt to secure 
the power of the President himself. I believe that 
the presidency should be disarmed lest it become 
that institution in American government most 
dangerous to American citizens. American presi- 
dential politics has already made the lives ol 
Americans more vulnerable to attack by external 
enemies, and threatens to do the same at home. 

One has only to recall the attempts of the 
Nixon administration to dismantle American 
Constitutional institutions. One has only to recall 
the massive arrests during the May Day peace 
demonstration in 1970. Though illegal on the 
face of it, the administration said it would do it 
again under similar circumstances. One has only 
to recall the campus murders at Kent State and 
Jackson State. And one has only to reflect on the 
eerie silence which suddenly descended on 
America after 1968, the silencing of criticism and 
dissent, and the growing power of a nationwide 
surveillance network. 

And so the great moral dilemmas of our time 
are related to the fact that the advent of nucleai 
power has made our world less safe in which to 
live and bring up our children, and has brought 
our ' country to the threshold of repression at

Associated Alumni Trustees 

In an exceptionally close election, 
the Rev. Robert Eugene Ratelle, 
T'47, rector of St. James' Church, 
Jackson, Mississippi, and a former 
trustee from the diocese of Louisi- 
ana, edged out the Rev. Lee Arch- 
er Belford, professor and ecumeni- 
cal relations leader in the diocese 
of New York, as clerical alumnus 

Two lay trustees, Frederick 
Reese Freyer, Jr., C'51, of Atlanta 
and Allan Carlisle King, C'51, of 
Houston were elected in other 
very close races. 

With so many Sewanee alumni 
having voted for the other candi- 
dates, the Alumni Council has 
expressed the hope that the bish- 
ops, chairmen of the nominating 
committees and current trustees 
will take note that this confidence 
was expressed in such large meas- 
ure in the two other close lay 
contenders: John Alden Bragg, 
A'43, C'49, of Franklin, Tennessee 
and Jacob Franklin Bryan IV, 
C'66, of Jacksonville in the dio- 
cese of Florida. 

For the Sewanee Academy 
Elbert Sevier Jemison, A'40, Bir- 
mingham sales executive for Mas- 
sachusetts Mutual and golf cham- 
pion, won in another close contest 
with William DeNeen Austin, 
A'46, C'52, insurance marketing 
expert now with Massachusetts 
Mutual in Jacksonville, and Wil- 
liam Hamlet Smith, A'50, C'54, 
bank chairman and chief executive 
officer of the Southeast Bank 
Group, residing in Fort Lauder- 
dale. He is a former trustee of the 
diocese of East Carolina. Florida 
and Southeast Florida diocesan 
clergy and lay leaders are asked by 
the Alumni Council to take note 
of the exceptional contributions of 
the two alumni to the life of the 
Sewanee Academy and to the Uni- 
versity at large. 

Board of Governors 

Members of the Sewanee Academy 
alumni governing board were on 
the Mountain April 25-26, enjoy- 
ing dogwood in full bloom and 
attending to serious business. For 

Governors Meet. Clockwise from left Robert Wood, J. C. Brown Burch, Henry 
Hutson (Headmaster), Louie Phillips, Joe Gardner, Brooke Dickson (vice- 
president of Academy Alumni), Marshall Walter (president of Academy 
Alumni), John Bratton (executive director of Associated Alumni), William D 
Austin, Albert Carpenter, James Edmondson, Farris McGee, Robertson 
McDonald, William Whipple (vice-president for development) 

the first time Rebel's Rest was 
overflowing and some members 
were housed in the Sewanee Inn. 

The governors expressed con- 
cern over the financial situation at 
the Academy and resolved to help 
the Headmaster through personal 
commitment and every means at 
their disposal. They also heard 
from two current seniors, Ted 
Owen and Ernie Sibley, star foot- 
ball players. The Academy is pres- 
ently seeking a new coach and a 
director of admissions. 

Present were Joseph Gardner, 
'67; Brooke Dickson, '65; Albert 
Carpenter, '60; Farris McGee, '53; 
Louie Phillips, '26; R. Marshall

Alumni Exornati, Sewanee men of 
the class of 1925 and earlier, are 
asked to return to the Mountain at 
reunion time (October 3-4) to 
renew acquaintances. Each year 
one or more Alumni Exornati 
appear who have not been to 
Sewanee since graduation. 

The term Alumni Exornati 
comes from the Vice-Chancellor's 
charge to the graduates and means 
"chosen and honored," so that 
fifty years later the alumnus is 
again so designated. Professor 
Henry M. Gass, C'07, the late arid 
beloved classics professor, had sug- 
gested the accolade. A key is 
presented to all members of the 
fiftieth celebrating class at the fall 
banquet and to all others eligible 
who had not had the opportunity 
to receive it before. 

This year the Alumni Exomati 
will celebrate their annual renewal 
of fellowship in concert with fall 
colors after the football game. 
Celebration will be at the beautiful 
view-site home, the Cloister, of 
Reginald, C'22, and Nina Helven- 
ston, located at St. Mary's-on-the- 

Academy Homecoming 

Alumni of the Sewanee Academy 
will meet October 10-11 at the 
time of the annual Academy-St. 
Andrew's gridiron tilt. 

Washington and New York 

Thad Marsh, University provost 
and already renowned as an ora- 
tor, was speaker at the annual 
spring gatherings of Sewanee Clubs 
in Washington and New York City. 

For some years Sewanee alum- 
ni, most of them working in the 
capitol city but living in Washing- 
ton, Virginia and Maryland, have 
gathered in the countryside Evans 
Farm Inn near Fairfax. Ninety 
alumni and friends were there 
April 11 for the annual meeting. 
New president is Burton ,B. Han- 
bury, Jr., C'68. Burt, now a law- 
yer, was formerly assistant to the 
director of development for 

About forty alumni were at 
the impressive University Club at 
Fifth Avenue and 59th Street in 
New York City to listen to Thad 
Marsh and enjoy cocktails and 
hors d'oeuvres together. Lee 
Glenn, C'57, was elected president. 

Career Counseling 

One of the most diverse groups 
since Alumni Career Counseling 
was begun several years ago to talk 
with students about their life's 
work was held for law April 3-4. 
Attending were Judge William 
O. Beach, C'43, of Clarksville, 
Tennessee; Frank Bratton, C'32, of 
Athens, Tennessee, former Tennes- 
see Bar Association president; Eric 
Benjamin, C73, Emory law stu- 
dent; Harold Bigham, C'54, Van- 
derbilt law professor; and Douglas 
Milne, C'65, in Jacksonville general 

From a beer-and-pretzels get- 
together, where appointments were 
made for "eyeball-to-eyeball" con- 
versations between counselors and 
students, to a rap session in the 
Bishop's Common Lounge, the 
gathering was stimulating and pro- 
vocative, with students reporting a 
flow of much new information 
about what to expect in law 
school and in practice. 

Awards for Excellence 

More Sewanee Club Awards for 
Excellence are being presented this 
year than ever before— nearly 300 
high schools participating in four- 
teen cities throughout the consti- 
tuent dioceses in addition to Vir- 
ginia and Washington, D.C. 

The award is the Centennial 
Medallion embedded in a setting 
of local wood by Sewanee crafts- 
men and is presented on Awards 
Day in the high schools to the 
outstanding juniors. A Tampa 
school could not decide between 
two boys and so a "draw" was 
declared and both were given their 
certificates and medallions. 

The remaining public rooms 
at the Sewanee Inn will be 
converted to dormitory use in 
August, to accommodate an 
overflow beyond anticipated 
pre-registration figures. 

Visitors to the "big" 
weekends— Alumni Homecom- 
ing for College, Academy and 
St. Luke's— must reserve ac- 
commodations through the 
alumni office. Individuals 
planning a trip to Sewanee at 
other times will find it most 
convenient to make reserva- 
tions at the Monteagle Holi- 
day Inn through their local 
Holiday Inns. 


Bishop Jose Antonio Ramos of Costa Rica 
and Bishop Robert R. Spears of the com- 
panion diocese of Rochester present $950,000 
to Bishop Allin. 

Again and again during his first year as 
Presiding Bishop the Rt. Rev. John M. Allin, 
C'43, T'45, H'62, Chancellor of the University, 
pointed to alleviation of world hunger as the 
Church 's most pressing need. The Presiding 
Bishop's Fund collected nearly a million dollars 
for the purpose through April 30 and another 
$980,000 from the bequest of Margaret W. 
Strong to the diocese of Costa Rica was turned 
over by the diocese with this earmarking. 

The procedural controversy over the ordina- 
tion of eleven women has stirred up much wind 
during his administration but has apparently not 

diverted him off his projected course. Headlines 
in early May bannered a citation for contempt 
by an ecclesiastical court dealing with an off- 
shoot of the ordination issue when he did not 
appear in person in answer to a subpoena 
because of prior commitments to deliver the 
commencement address at Trinity College, 
Toronto, meet in consultation with the Primate 
of Canada and the Archbishop of Canterbury, 
address the annual convention of the diocese of 
Arizona and act as chief consecrator of the Rt. 
Rev. William A. Jones, GST'62, as Bishop of

indirectly through the use of steam-driven tur-

power from coal, the nations cheapest and 
most abundant fuel, while dramatically reducing 
pollution. "With the drastic increase in the cost 
of coal, savings to the nation through the MHD 
process by the end of this century are estimated 
at a minimum of $120 billion and might go as 
high as $247 billion."

August 28, 3:45 p.m. - $956,468 
of MDP funds is in the treasurer's 
office, with several large pledges 
still expected by the August 31 

by Marcus L. Oliver, Director of Annual Giving 

Whether or not the million-dollar goal was 
reached, the challenge year of the Million Dollar 
Program must be hailed as a success. 

At this writing, two weeks before the August 
31 deadline, more gifts available to the operating 
budget of the University corporation have been 
received than in any previous twelve-month 
period in the history of Sewanee. There is 
$850,261 in hand and firm pledges for at least an 
additional $50,000 for payment by the deadline. 
Last year's total was $735,649 and the all-time 
record previously was $781,122 set in fiscal year 

Spurred on by the $100,000 matching/chal- 
lenge grant offered by sixteen special donors and 
responding to the dynamic leadership of national 
chairman Robert M. Ayres, Jr., the fifth year of 
the Million Dollar Program has demonstrated 
what can happen when significant people act in 
concert and with concern. 

The challenge grant was more than earned. 
Only new or increased gifts, reckoned on last 
year's base, qualified under the terms of the 
challenge. Bequests and the challenge gifts them- 
selves were not eligible. On 14 August the 
qualifying gifts totaled $257,767, more than 
claiming the $100,000 purse on a one-for-two 
formula. Thus the million-dollar goal would have 
been reached handily if all of last year's donors 
had at least maintained their level. 

Leaders Press Hard 

Mr. Ayres' leadership was not in a void. The 
regents, at the urging of William U. Whipple, 
vice-president for development, have taken a far 
more active role in fundraising than has been true 
in the past. Each regent, after making his own 
pledge, personally solicited gifts from the trus- 
tees, invoking a cardinal rule of classic fund- 
raising. Many of the regents and trustees also 
have participated actively in another innovation 
by Mr. Whipple, the intensive personal solicitation 
campaigns in metropolitan areas with large con- 
centrations of the Sewanee constituency. 

Metropolitan area campaigns were held in 
fourteen key cities with local leaders recruiting 
enough workers to enable face-to-face encounters 
with most of the people on Sewanee's mailing 
list. While the local campaigns were fraught with 
all the problems of any new concept, they were 
successful in communicating Sewanee's exciting 

story to many alumni and friends by way of 
committed personal contact. 

Further, when research or local intelligence 
revealed major gift prospects, Mr. Ayres would 
fly in to make the solicitation call in person. He 
has been successful in securing seven gifts of 
$10,000 each with five additional pledges for 
similar gifts before the end of the challenge year. 

A pragmatist as well as a man of faith, Mr. 
Ayres admits that it will take a near miracle to 
reach the goal of a million dollars this year. But 
in the same breath he confirms his belief that the 
elusive target will be hit dead center. His schedule 
for the last month is that of one who believes 
that miracles follow a combination of prayer and 
hard work. 

Needed Every Year 

Justification for the importance which has 
been placed on reaching the million-dollar level of 
annual giving is found in a review of the $10 
million budget (page 2) for the corporation. 
Simply put, here is the picture: when the 
expenditures are placed in one pile next to the 
expected revenues before any gifts are included, 
expenditures exceed revenues by $1,025,000. 

It may surprise many to discover that Se- 
wanee must plan to raise 10% of its operating 
budget through gifts. It must be remembered that 
private education has always depended heavily on 
gifts for its existence. In comparison with similar 
schools we find comfort. The last published 
figures are for 1972-73 and show Sewanee raising 
13.4% of its budget in gifts. Washington and Lee 
raised 9.9%, Davidson 17.3%, and Southwestern 
at Memphis 21.5%. 

Metropolitan area campaigns will again be 
conducted during the coming months. In addition 
to repeat performances in fourteen cities, cam- 
paigns are contemplated in Knoxville, Mobile, 
Montgomery, Pensacola, Shreveport, and Louis- 

Providing a head start on the new goal are 
two firm pledges totaling $175,000 payable 
within the coming twelve months. 

Raising a million dollars a year in budget- 
related gifts ought not pose a serious problem for 
an institution which is owned by a half-million 
Episcopalians and which boasts an alumni count 
of 14,700. Not, that is, if the Southern church is 
serious about its ministry in education and the 
alumni translate high regard into annual giving.

The operating budget for the cur- 
rent fiscal year, 1975-76, has been 
set at $10,212,720, up from an 
actual expenditure in 1973-74 of 
$8,855,903. That was the last 
completed fiscal year for which 
final actual revenue and expendi- 
ture figures are available (the year 
was changed to July 1— June 30 
starting this year). 

The needed additional revenues 
will be met by a tuition increase 
of $300 per student in the Col- 
lege, $200 in the Academy, and 
$100 in the School of Theology; 
plus an increase of $200,000 in 
unrestricted gifts and grants to 
$1,025,000. The last figure, 
$200,000 more than was budgeted 
for 1974-75, as the Vice- 
Chancellor pointed out to the trus- 
tees, "is a tremendous challenge to 
each one of us, demanding our 
best efforts toward assuring a 
'never-ending succession of bene- 
factors. '* 

"The major adjustments up- 
ward in expenditures," Dr. Ben- 
nett said, "after accounting for 
inflation in fixed charges, such as 
utilities, etc., are to provide an 
average increase in salaries and 
wages of eight per cent and to 
provide increased budget support 
of student financial aid necessita- 
ted by our tuition fee increases. 

*From the University Prayer 

Of the student financial aid, 
expected to total $1,063,800 for 
the three units (including ear- 
marked endowment income), Dr. 
Bennett said, "This is necessary if 
we are to continue to recruit 
students of ability who cannot 
meet expenses, and provide the 
economic mix that we need for 
educational health. 

"We, therefore, made the 
deliberate decision to spend our 
'new money' on our most impor- 
tant resource— people, particularly 
faculty and students." 

Budget Process Long, Open 

"This budget is the result of 
the most intensive financial review 
and planning that has occurred 
since my arrival here in 1971," Dr. 
Bennett said. "It is also one of the 
'tightest' we have yet proposed. 
The projected contingency reserve 
and operating surplus total only 
$56,000, with projected revenues 
and expenditures in excess of 
$10,000,000. Half of one per cent 
leeway is frighteningly small. But 
we pledge the most careful 
stewardship on the part of all of 
us. We will match for husbandry 
any corporation anywhere, dollar 
for dollar." 

For the first time, the pro- 
posed budget was circulated in 

various stages to faculty and staff 
to ensure that all voices be heard 
before the hard choices were 
made. This gave rise to some 
rumors and speculation in the stu- 
dent newspaper. Dr. Bennett 
accepted an invitation to answer 
budget questions on the Student 
Forum and he distributed copies 
of the proposed budget at that 
time. Students professed enlighten- 
ment. The fact that the tuition 
their parents had paid required 
supplementing from other sources 
by at least again as much appeared 
to be a notable eye-opener. 

Requests for funding which 
were not included in the final 
proposed budget totaled over a 
quarter of a million dollars, ac- 
cording to Laurence Alvarez, 
coordinator of planning and 
budget. Most reluctantly post- 
poned were much-needed projects 
for renovation and maintenance. 

Among items requested but 
not funded: pianos for music 
department, spectrophotometer, 
supplies for Academy in art, ad- 
ministration and athletics; shelving 
and cabinets for the library; 
wrestling mat refinishing and 
sports information officer for Col- 
lege athletics; offset press and even 
a typewriter for auxiliary services; 
and many, many more.

G. Cecil Woods 

Ben Humphreys McGee 


Two Alumni Leaders Die 

G. Cecil Woods, Sr., A'17, C'31, 
H'65, former chairman of the 
board of regents, co-chairman of 
the Ten Million Dollar Campaign 
1962-65, and current challenge 
donor for the Million Dollar Pro- 
gram, died June 15 in Chatta- 
nooga, two days short of his 
seventy -fifth birthday. 

Robert Ayres, Million Dollar 
Program chairman, has described 
how Mr. Woods' fundraising 
efforts for the University during 
the campaign to claim the Ford 
challenge grant changed Ayres' 
outlook and indeed the course of 
his life (May Sewanee News). The 
Vice-Chancellor has also comment- 
ed on the magnitude of his impact 
on the history of this institution: 
"Cecil Woods' role in Sewanee's 
Ten Million Dollar Campaign was 
crucial. While he initially accepted 
the responsibility of the chairman- 
ship jointly with his brother, 
Albert's death shortly thereafter 
left him the task of coordinating 
the efforts of many people on 
many fronts to bring off success 
against tremendous odds. Later he 
was to become for me a kind of 
Bernard Baruch— wise, kind and 
gentle counselor, and friend." 

The trustees elected him to the 
board of regents in 1967 after the 
ordinances were revised to allow 
the inclusion of non-Episcopalians 
(Mr. Woods was a deacon and 
elder of the Presbyterian church). 
In another unprecedented action, 
the board elected him its chairman 
at the first meeting he attended. 

In 1965 a grateful Alma Mater 
made him an honorary Doctor of 
Civil Law. The citation reads: 
"Granville Cecil Woods, Sr., one of 
the leading citizens of Chattanooga 
and one of the most prominent 
insurance executives in America, 
was born in Shelbyville, Tennessee, 
and educated at the Sewanee Mili- 
tary Academy and the University 
of the South. During the fifty 
years since his enrollment in the 
Academy in 1915 he has been in 
close touch with the Mountain. He 
and four other members of his 

family, a brother, a son and two 
nephews, have received part or all 
of their education in Sewanee, and 
collectively have made a record in 
the student body, the Alumni 
Association, the faculty, the board 
of trustees and the board of re- 
gents, such as few families have 

"Altogether aside from his 
contributions to the development 
of his Alma Mater, Mr. Woods' 
reputation in his city, his state, 
the South, and the nation would 
warrant the bestowing of our high- 
est honors upon him. From 1939 
to 1963 he was president of the 
Volunteer State Life Insurance 
Company, and since 1963 has 
been chairman of its board. From 
1943 to 1945 he was state chair- 
man of the War Finance Commit- 
tee of Tennessee. In 1950 he 
became a member of the executive 
committee of the American Life 
Convention; and in 1951 he re- 
ceived the highest insurance honor 
in the country by being elected 
president of the American Life 
Convention. He is a director of the 
American National Bank and Trust 
Company of Chattanooga; he is a 
past director of the Life Insurance 
Medical Research Fund, the Life 
Insurance Association of America, 
the Institute of Life Insurance, 
and the United Fund of Chatta- 
nooga; and he is a former trustee 
of the Southern Research Insti- 
tute, Stillman College, and the 
University of the South." 

His wife, Katherine Greer 
Woods, died in 1973. He is sur- 
vived by his son, the Very Rev. G. 
Cecil Woods, Jr., SS'47, H*69, 
dean of the Virginia Episcopal 
Seminary, and four granddaugh-

Ben Humphreys McGee, A'42, 
C'49, died in an automobile acci- 
dent in Leland, Mississippi on 
August 1, at the age of fifty. He 
was current president of the Asso- 
ciated Alumni and had just com- 
pleted a term as regent. He, too, 

was a dedicated fundraiser and 
worker for Sewanee as well as a 
challenge donor. He was chairman 
of his Academy class and devoted 
special efforts for that unit, head- 
ing the regents' committee that 
directed studies of the military 
format and recommended the tran- 
sition to the Academy's present

so well known. He is said to have 
been a beautiful little boy, a favo- 
rite with the College students, and 
he came home in tears one day 
complaining that he had been 
called pretty. In an effort to con- 
sole the distraught lad, Morgan 
Hall, C'39, T'46, explained that

B. Humphreys McGee was 
born in Greenville, Mississippi, and 
grew up in Sewanee after his 
mother moved here. Between 
Academy and College he served in 
the Marines as a staff sergeant, and 
was awarded its Air Medal. In the 
College he was an economics ma- 
jor, a football letterman and mem- 
ber of Phi Delta Theta. After 
graduation he went to work on his 
family's Little Panther Plantation 
near Leland and became its general 
manager. He was a director of the 
Bank of Leland and an alderman 
of the city, warden of his church 
and a member of the executive 
committee of his diocese. 

Ben Humphreys McGee was 
known to all Sewaneeans as "Ug," 
so exclusively that when the Vice- 
Chancellor introduced him by his 
proper name at a meeting last 
spring he felt impelled to explain, 
"That's Latin for 'Ug.' " How he 

the students were just teasing him. 
"You aren't pretty, Humphreys," 
said the man who was to remain 
his unswerving friend, "You're 
ugly!" The ploy worked, and the 
boy's face lightened. He began to 
tell everyone with obvious joy, 
"I'm ugly!" The name stuck in the 
way opposites often do, and so 
"One of the most beautiful human 
beings I have ever known," the 
Vice-Chancellor says, "was hailed 
far and wide as Ug." 

He is survived by his wife, 
Charlotte, two daughters and two 
sons, Ralph Waldo, A'69, C'56, 
and Ben Humphreys, Jr., A'71, 
C'75, his brother Burrell, C'56, 
and sister Maury, who lives in 

Academy's Miller Puckette Takes International First 

Miller Puckette, a senior at the 
Sewanee Academy, was awarded 
one of eight first places in the 
seventeenth annual Mathematics 
Olympiad for high school students 
July 8 at Burgas, Bulgaria. There 
were 136 participants from seven- 
teen countries, and first places 
went to all who scored 39 or 
40— a perfect score— on a six- 
problem test. Miller scored 39. 
("They took a point off for pres- 
entation," he says. "I knew they 

Two of his teammates among 
the eight representing the United 
States also took firsts, and the 
United States came in third, one 
point ahead of Soviet Russia, last 
year's winner. Hungary was first 
and East Germany second, with 
England coming in fifth. At six- 
teen Miller was the youngest of all 
the contestants. 

Young Puckette, the son of a 
professor of mathematics and dean 
of the College of Arts and Sci- 
ences and a mother who also 
specialized in mathematics, was 
selected for the U.S. team on the 
basis of a nationwide test taken 
earlier this year by 350,000 stu- 
dents. The testing is sponsored 
jointly in the United States by the 
Mathematical Association of Amer- 
ica, the National Council of Teach- 
ers of Mathematics, the Casualty 
Actuarial Society and Mu Alpha 
Theta. The Academy group that 
took the test received a certificate 
for "outstanding proficiency." 
Since he will not graduate for 
another year, Miller will be eligible 
to compete again, starting from 
the beginning. 

After two days of tests in 
Burgas, where the competitors 
were housed in a boys' school, the 


In the March issue of the Sewanee 
News a list of people awarded the 
Master of Sacred Theology degree 
from the Graduate School of 
Theology by an inadvertence did 
not include the name of William 
H. Littleton, who received the 
degree in 1960. 

United States team and its two 
coaches spent a week sightseeing 
in Greece. 

Miller does not come on like a 
whiz-kid stereotype. He shares the 
somewhat reserved manner of 
both his parents, but is playful 
and well-liked. "You know it can't 
be Miller if his shirttail isn't out," 
one teacher says fondly. He is a 
bit shaky in spelling, but leaves no 
doubt of what the word is he 
means to use. He played soccer at 
the Academy and managed the 

basketball team, with only occa- 
sional time out to plot the trajec- 
tory of the ball or develop an 
equation to insure its proper infla- 
tion. Like his father, he loves 
canoeing, and elected to go on a 
planned paddling trip in Canada 
and skip honor ceremonies pre- 
ceding the official cram session at 
Rutgers University before the 

He is remembered by the 
Academy faculty first as a small 
tow-headed fifth-grader coming to 
take math there. Starting the 

second semester of his freshman 
year at the Academy, he began to 
take math in the College on the 
Academy's advanced placement 
program. "He was in my senior 
math class that first semester," 
Academy instructor Robert Wood 
says, "and it didn't take long to 
tell he knew all of it." 

His only material reward for 
his first place is a scroll all in 
Bulgarian. At least he can hang it 
up without incurring the family 
horror of showing off.

To Be Certified 

There is a strong likelihood that 
some 1976 graduates of the Col- 
lege will be certified to teach at 
the secondary level. The necessary 
reports are shortly to be reviewed 
by the State of Tennessee. 

The idea was approved on 
principle by the faculty and trus- 
tees in 1973, on the logic that if a 
Sewanee education prepares good 
teachers— and all evidence shows 
that it does— they should be able 
to enter their vocation without 
attending other institutions for the 
technical requirements, as has been 
necessary in the past. 

A faculty-student committee 
chaired successively by Professor 
George Ramseur and Professor 

Charles Peyser has been working 
out the curriculum and negotiating 
with the state. In accord with the 
liberal arts philosophy of the Col- 
lege, qualifying courses are offered 
by the existing faculty. Dr. Anita 
Goodstein's "History of Education 
in America" last year was a quali- 
fying course, as is the current 
"Biology and Man," taught by Dr. 
Henrietta Croom of the biology 
department. Dean Mary L. Cush- 
man will supervise practice 

A limited number of areas of 
certification will be available, ac- 
cording to present plans. They will 
be specified soon. 

Twenty-Two Majors Offered 

The College now offers majors in 
twenty departments and in two 
cross-departmental disciplines, with 
the possibility of other construc- 
tions by individual arrangement. 

The two established interdis- 
ciplinary majors are American 
Studies and Comparative Litera- 
ture. The American Studies group 
includes selected courses (varying 
from student to student) in his- 
tory, economics, political science, 
philosophy and English with Dr. 
Anita Goodstein chairing faculty 
representatives of each of these 
departments. There have been 
several of these majors in the past 
and a half dozen students have 
elected this concentration for the 
coming year. 

The Comparative Literature 
staff from all the language depart- 
ments, including English, is headed 
by Dr. Jacqueline Schaefer, who 
also teaches a new seminar course, 
"The Comparatist's Approach to 
Literature," required of these 
majors but open to all. 

Music has been added to fine 
arts as a major option. (An early 
art graduate, Charles Wheatley, 
C'66, is teaching this semester dur- 
ing the sabbatical leave of Dr. 
Edward Carlos.) Both music and 
fine arts have been strengthened 
since a course in one of them or 
in theater arts is required of all 
students for graduation. This re- 
quirement brings closer to reality 
the old statement of purpose for- 
mulated many years ago by the 
University Senate: "We are defin- 
itely committed at Sewanee to the 
college of liberal arts as a distinct 
unit in the educational system of 
our country, with a contribution 
to make that can be made by no 

other agency. In an age when the 
demand for the immediately prac- 
tical is so insistent, when the 
integrity of the college of liberal 
arts is imperiled by the demands 
of vocational training, we adhere 
to the basic function of the col- 
lege of liberal arts: the training of 
youth in Christian virtue, in per- 
sonal initiative, in self-mastery, in 
social consciousness, in aesthetic 
appreciation, in intellectual integ- 
rity, and in scientific methods of 
inquiry." The trustees in April 
passed a new statement of purpose 
not essentially different and pur- 
suing even more lofty goals. 

Anthropology in the three 
years since its introduction has 
been in great demand, and will 
undoubtedly achieve major status 
when the budget eases to allow 
the necessary additional staff. The 
whole department— fifty-five stu- 
dents enrolled last semester— is 
Mary Jo Wheeler-Smith, comely 
and soft-spoken but no-nonsense 
product of Radcliffe and the Uni- 
versity of Chicago, with emphasis 
on cultural studies. Gerald Smith 
in the department of religion and 
Dean Urban T. Holmes of the 
School of Theology also have 
strong backgrounds in anthropol- 
ogy and there is a good deal of 
cross-departmental reinforcement. 

The catalog lists a department 
of computer science, staffed by 
Dr. Clay Ross, associate professor 
of mathematics and director of 
academic computing, and Marcia 
Clarkson, lecturer in computer 
science and director of data pro- 
cessing. They speak Fortran, Algol 
and Snobol. 

Non-departmental courses 
offered for the fall semester are

Sewanee Tour Planned for January 

A second London theater program 
has been planned for thirty stu- 
dents, faculty and alumni Decem- 
ber 30, 1975, to January 13, 
1976, during the University of the 
South's mid-winter interim. Profes- 
sors William T. Cocke and John V. 
Reishman of the College English 
department will again conduct the 
tour, and arrangements arc in the 
hands of the travel service run by 
Jim Clark, C'49, and his wife, 

The tour group will leave from 
Pan American's V.I. P. Lounge in 
Atlanta for London on December 
30 and return there on January 
13. "We will travel on regularly 
scheduled Pan American flights 
from Washington to London and 
return and on regularly scheduled 
Delta flights from Atlanta to 
Washington and return," Dr. 
Cocke says. In London transporta- 
tion to and from the airport and 
luggage handling will be provided. 
Also included is a half-day sight- 
seeing tour of London by private 
motor coach on the first day. 

While in London the tour will 
stay at the Vanderbilt Hotel in 
South Kensington, close to the 
Victoria and Albert Museum, the 

Royal Albert Hall and Harrods 
Department Store. Dr. Cocke says 
the Vanderbilt is a small, attrac- 
tive, comfortable hotel, well 
known to and frequently used by 
Sewanee travelers. It offers double 
occupancy rooms plus a complete 
English breakfast. 

"The basic reason for the 
trip," Dr. Cocke says, "is to allow 
the group the excitement of first- 
hand exposure to the best theater 
in the English-speaking world." He 
and Dr. Reishman will select for 
the group eight plays "of quality 
and enduring value performed by 
distinguished actors." Each morn- 
ing there will be optional dis- 
cussions of the previous evening's 
play led by Professors Cocke and 
Reishman. During the days in 
London the two teachers will lead 
informal walking tours of mu- 
seums, galleries and other points 
of cultural interest. 

The price for the entire tour 
package is $810, payable by No- 
vember 30, 1975, to Clark Cruise 
and Travel Service, 400 Franklin 
Street, Huntsville, Alabama 35801. 
Application for the trip should be 
made to either Dr. Cocke or Dr. 
Reishman, c/o University Station, 
Sewanee, Tennessee 37375. 

Securities and Investments, taught 
by Professor Gilbert Gilchrist of 
the department of political 
science, and the Philosophy of 
Science, again taught by Dr. Ed- 
ward McCrady, former Vice-Chan- 
cellor. Dr. McCrady is also teach- 
ing two sections of embryology in 
the biology department. The new 
accountant, Lansing Johansen, will 
teach accounting as did his pre- 
decessor, Harry Dodd, now treas- 

Dr. Francis X. Hart teaches 
astronomy in the physics depart- 
ment, and Dr. Henrietta Croom, 

assistant professor of biology, is 
offering a new course, "Biology 
and Man." This is described as "a 
study of man's biological nature 
and of his role in the Biosphere. 
Topics covered include genetics 
and evolution, aspects of anatomy 
and physiology, molecular and 
infectious diseases, immunology, 
nutrition, population dynamics 
and environmental health. This 
course may not satisfy the science 
requirement of the College nor the 
course requirements for a biology 
major. It is required of students 
seeking teacher certification."

First at Sewanee 

From Agnes Wilcox, director of 
the Bishop's Common: "You 
heard it first at Sewanee! The July 
5 and 12 issue of the New Repub- 
lic contained an essay by Ellen 
Douglas, originally heard as a lec- 
ture at the 1975 Sewanee Confer- 
ence on Women. The title is 'Pro- 
vincialism in Literature.' The July 
5 and 12 issue of the magazine 
was the last issue for which Doris 
Grumbach was literary editor. I'm 
assuming Doris and Ellen met for 
the first time at the Women's 
Conference and the article is the 
result of their discussions here." 

Catholic Conversation 
Among nineteen Episcopal and 
Roman Catholic theologians meet- 
ing in Cincinnati June 22-25 to 
discuss issues raised by the ques- 
tion of the ordination of women 
were Professor Howard Rhys of 
the School of Theology, Bishop 

Arthur Vogel, C'46, H'71, and 
Bishop Addison Hosea, T'49, 
H'70. The group in a joint state- 
ment said the Church faces an 
issue that demands of it a new 
effort at self-understanding in re- 
gard to certain elements of its 

'75 Spreads Out 

The United States will be spanned 
by 1975 Academy graduates in 
their college attendance, from 
Harvard to the University of Cali- 
fornia at Santa Barbara, as indi- 
cated by the forty-four members 
of the class who left word of their 

Keith Cornelius is the Har- 
vard-bound one this year, and 
Peyton Cook has an appointment 
to the United States Air Force 
Academy. Four of the class have 
entered the University of the 
South. Vanderbilt gets one and the 
University of North Carolina at 
Chapel Hill two. The lone venturer 
into the Middle West is Lane 
Oliver, going to Earlham. In all, 
forty colleges and universities are 
on the list. 

Fast for Relief 

Of the student body of 930 in the 
College last semester 444 partici- 
pated in a skip-one-meal-a-week 
Lenten fast that raised $822, dis- 
tributed to organizations dealing 
with world food and crisis relief. 

Of the Bells 

April rang with even more than 
customary vigor in the annals of 
the University's fifty-six-bell Leon- 
idas Polk Memorial Carillon, a 
glance at carilloneur Albert Bon- 
holzer's schedule confirms. In 
addition to the weekly Sunday 
concerts by Mr. Bonholzer or his 
students, there were extra recitals 
on April 10 in honor of the 
birthday of Leonidas Polk, in 
whose memory the bells were 

given; on April 18 at midnight to 
commemorate the ride two hun- 
dred years before of Paul Revere 
(one lantern was lit in the tower, 
as it seemed unlikely the British 
would arrive here by sea); and on 
April 30, Walpurgis Night, witches 
were scoured out of the air by the 
traditional bell-ringing with which 
Albert Bonholzer has annually pro- 
tected the community. 

Griffin Directs Conference 

The Rev. William Augustin Griffin, 
Professor of Old Testament in the 
School of Theology, has been 
selected by the Bishop for the 
Armed Forces to direct and speak 
at the October 1975 conference 
for military lay leaders. The 
annual conference, held to provide 
denominational coverage for those 
scattered installations where no 
Episcopal chaplain is stationed, 
will take, place this year in Heidel- 
berg, Germany. 

Biological Journals 
Dr. Carl E. Georgi, Regents' Pro- 
fessor Emeritus at the University 
of Nebraska at Lincoln, has 
donated thirty years' worth of 
publications on microbiology to 
the University of the South 
library. The thirty -year set is the' 
Proceedings of the Society for 
Experimental Biology and Medi- 
cine, some issues of which are out 
of print. He has also given the 
University ten years' worth of 
Federation Proceedings of the 
American Society for Biological 
Chemists. The original papers and 
reviews in the journals are expect- 
ed to be useful to biology and 
chemistry majors and honors can- 

Dr. Georgi is the father of 
Todd A. Georgi, C'69, who recent- 
ly received his Ph.D. Until his 

retirement this year, Dr. Georgi 
was Murray Longworth Professor 
of Microbiology and chairman of 
the department. 

Mountain Laurels 

Of fourteen Tennessee contribu- 
tors to the Encyclopedia Britan- 
nica's fifteenth edition, two are in 
Sewanee, according to an 
announcement made by the publi- 
cation: John Marshall, emeritus 
professor of philosophy, who 
wrote the biography of Richard 
Hooker; and Allen Tate, who did 
the biography of T. S. Eliot. 

Walter Bryant, C'49, the Col- 
lege's director of athletics, and 
Uncle Dudley Fort, C'34, playing 
as a team finished in a tie for 
second place in the Belle Meade 
Golf Classic in Nashville in June. 

The drawings and paintings of 
Edward Carlos, associate professor 
of fine arts, were given a one-man 
exhibition by the Littlehouse Art 
Center in Homewood, Alabama, 
June 15-July 20. 


One of the most versatile scholars 
to join the faculty since the ad- 
vent of Edward McCrady will be 
associate professor of mathematics 
and Brown Foundation Fellow for 
the coming year. 

Wayne James Holman III was 
born in Paris, Tennessee in 1936. 
He took a B.S. in physics from 
Yale in 1957 and did graduate 
work in theoretical physics at 
M.I.T. until interrupted by mili- 
tary service in 1962. He was sta- 
tioned at the U.S. Army elec- 
tronics research and development 
laboratories at Fort Monmouth, 
New Jersey, monitoring a research 
contract on plasma waves in the 
ionosphere. While there he en- 
rolled as a graduate student in the 
department of Greek and Latin at 
Columbia University. He was sepa- 
rated from the service in August, 
1964, with the rank of captain, 
and in June, 1965, was awarded a 
Ph.D. in theoretical physics by 
M.I.T. and an M.A. in Greek by 

He was a research associate for 
the Center for Theoretical Studies 
at Coral Gables, Florida and had 
one-year appointments as visiting 
assistant professor in the theoreti- 
cal physics department of the 
Middle East Technical University 
in Ankara, Turkey and as senior 
research associate in the Institute 
for Theoretical Physics of the 
Academy of Sciences of the 
Ukrainian S.S.R. in Kiev, Russia. 
He has taught in the physics, 
astrophysics and mathematics de- 
partments at Duke University, the 
University of Colorado at Boulder, 
and most recently at the Univer- 
sity of North Carolina, Chapel 
Hill. He has published extensively 
in journals of physics and mathe- 
matics and translates Russian pro- 
fessionally for the consultants' 

bureau of the American Mathe- 
matical Society. He is also report- 
ed to be proficient in Latin, Ger- 
man and French. A colleague at 
Chapel Hill writes, "He has long 
been interested in the problem of 
communicating our science to 
those who are not in its pro- 

It is expected that at Sewanee 
he will substantially further the 
Brown Fellowship goal of strength- 
I ening individualized instruction 
: and the University's bent for inter- 
I disciplinary overviews. In the fall 
semester he will teach modern 
algebra and mathematical methods 
of physics. For the spring semester 
he will offer a course in Greek in 
the classics department and will 
conduct a seminar for the mathe- 
matics and physics faculties. 

Religion, Music 

Robert Charles Francis Cassidy 
has joined the College's depart- 
ment of religion as assistant pro- 
fessor. He was born in New Jersey 
in 1938 and has the B.A. from 
Williams College with highest 
honors, the M.A. and Ph.D. with 
distinction from Princeton and 
also studied for a year at Oxford. 
He comes from the University of 
Wisconsin at Stevens Point, where 
he had been an assistant professor 
and director of the program in 
religious studies since 1971. Before 
that he was a master in English, 
Spanish and religion and assistant 
headmaster at Windsor Mountain 
School in Lenox, Massachusetts, 
and from 1966 to 1969 an instruc- 
tor in religion at Connecticut 
College. His wife was Carolyn 
Miller. They have two teenage sons 
and a daughter. 

The music department, com- 
posed for many years of Dr. 
Joseph Running and Miss Martha 

McCrory, is augmented by a third 
member, John Marley Ware, a 
thirty-three-year-old native of Two 
Rivers, Wisconsin. A Woodrow 
Wilson Fellow, he has a bachelor's 
and master's degree in music from 
Indiana University and is working 
toward a Ph.D. at Louisiana State. 
He has taught at Huntington Col- 
lege in Indiana, the University of 
Tennessee at Martin, Middle Ten- 
nessee State University and the 
University of Wisconsin at Su- 
perior. Upwards of twenty-five of 
his compositions have been played 
and/or published. He is married to 
the former Emily Christine Carlson 
and they have a two-year-old son. 

From the Foreign Service 

Barclay Ward, a U.S. foreign 
service officer for over ten years, 
has joined the political science 
faculty. Born in 1938, he grew up 
in Storrs, Connecticut, where his 
father was a chemistry professor at 
the University of Connecticut. Mr. 
Ward has a bachelor's degree from 
Hamilton College in New York 
State (1959), a master's from the 
Johns Hopkins School of Ad- 
vanced International Studies in 
Washington, and is completing the 
Ph.D. at the University of Iowa. 
His work with the State Depart- 
ment included assignments in the 
embassies at Ottawa and Warsaw. 
In 1972 he entered graduate 
school with the plan of changing 
his career to college teaching. His 
wife, the former Joan Louise 
Steves of Cincinnati, was also a 
foreign service officer. They have 
two children. 

Field Director to Full Time 

The realization of a trust left 
to the School of Theology by Z. 
C. Patten of Chattanooga, who 
died over twenty-five years ago, 
has made possible the appointment 
as full-time director of field educa- 
tion of the Rev. Harry H. Pritch- 
ett, former rector of St. Thomas' 
Church in Huntsville, Alabama. 
Mr. Pritchett had been serving 
part-time for two years. Dean 
Holmes says, "Along with the 
many advantages of our location, 
it is clear that one disadvantage is 
that opportunities for clinical ex- 
perience for our students have to 
be developed at the expense of 
considerable time. The job has 
long required a full-time person, 
and we are deeply grateful for the 
care and thoughtfulness of a de- 
voted churchman which makes it 
possible for us to meet this need." 

Mr. Pritchett is a native of 
Tuscaloosa, is a graduate of the 
University of Alabama, served two 
years in the infantry and sold 
insurance and real estate before 
going to Virginia Theological Sem- 
inary for his M.Div. degree. He 
was associate at St. Luke's, 
Birmingham, before going to St. 
Thomas'. His many community 
activities include the founding of 
Fellowship House, a rehabilitation 
home for male alcoholics, and 

Huntsville Group Home for girls 
leaving state correctional schools, 
as well as board membership for a 
number of help organizations. His 
wife was Allison McQueen and 
they have three children. 

Track Champion 

New history teacher and coach 
at the Sewanee Academy is Denis 
W. Flood, who came for the 
second semester of last year and 
now starts a full year. 

Flood was born in 1947 in 
New York City and received his 
early education there. On gradua- 
tion from high school in 1965 he 
joined the Marine Corps and 
served for three years, including a 
tour in Vietnam. He was wounded 
twice and was awarded the Cross 
of Gallantry and the Navy Com- 
mendation Medal. 

After discharge he enrolled in 
the University of Tennessee on an 
athletic scholarship and majored in 
history and political science. While 
there, he was a writer for the U.T. 
Daily Beacon and the Knoxville 
News-Sentinel. He was captain of 
the varsity track team, a member 
of the 1972 NCAA Championship 
team and the U.S.A. track team. 
He was graduated in 1973 with a 
B.A. degree in history. 

After completing training in 
marketing and sales, he was assign- 
ed as marketing director of a 
three-state area for the Coca-Cola 
Company and came to the Acad- 
emy from that position. He has 
been instructor of physical educa- 
tion, succeeding Timothy Turpen, 
as well as history teacher. He is 
single, and has been living in the 
Gorgas Hall apartment. 

And in Administration 

J. Douglas Seiters, C'65, is the 
College's new dean of men, re- 
placing Charles Binnicker, C'50, 
who has resumed full-time teach- 
ing in the classics department. 
Seiters is also a product of the 
classics department, having taught 
on a varying schedule while work- 
ing as assistant director of admis- 
sions, the post he has held since 
1971. Before that he was Latin 
teacher and coach at Baylor 
School in Chattanooga, from 
which he had graduated. In the 
College at Sewanee he was a foot- 
ball, track and wrestling letterman, 
a member of Phi Delta Theta and 
Omicron Delta Kappa and presi- 
dent of Blue Key, and was select- 
ed for Who's Who in American 
Colleges. A native of Chattanooga, 
he is married to the former Ann 
Dwight Borden of Wilmington, 
Delaware. They have two little 

The title "dean of students," 
formerly held by John Webb, no 
longer exists, with Seiters sharing 
the responsibilities with Mary L. 
Cushman, dean of women. Dr. 
Webb moved across the hall in 
Walsh a year ago to work with Dr. 
Stephen Puckette as associate aca- 
demic dean of the College. To fill 

Hail and Farewell 

out the admissions staff is Edward 
H. Harrison, Jr., C'75, whose 
father was C'35. 

Mrs. Henry Hayes, who for 
two years was a much-loved and 
respected dean of girls for the 
Sewanee Academy, has returned to 
Chattanooga to be coordinator of 
volunteer services for the Chatta- 
nooga Symphony. 

Another sorely missed Acad- 
emy officer is Gerald Shields, 
director of admissions, who has 
trekked southward to Ransom 
Everglades School in Miami, Flori- 
da, where he will teach history

ers of other languages" program. 
They have two small children. 


Lansing K. Johansen comes 
from Springfield, Illinois, where he 
was chief fiscal and budget officer 
in the state comptroller's office, to 
be the University's chief account- 
ant, succeeding Harry Dodd, who 
in turn succeeded Douglas 
Vaughan as treasurer (see March 
Sewanee News). Mr. Johansen was 
born in Decatur, Illinois in 1943, 
and has a B.S. and master's in 
accounting from the University of 
Illinois. A member of the Ameri- 
can Institute of C.P.A.'s and Beta 
Alpha Psi accounting fraternity, he 
has practiced his profession for 
private corporations including 
Alcoa in Tennessee and for four 
years as campus auditor for the 
University of Illinois. He is 
married and has two daughters. 

Welteck Gone 

Edwin P. Welteck has retired, 
ill-spared, from the development 
staff, where for six years he work- 
ed and traveled tirelessly, soliciting 
the gifts upon which all other 
functions of the University hinge. 
He came with fund-raising expert- 
ise from the University of the 
Pacific at Stockton, California and 
long years with Burrill, Inc. At 
retirement age only by the calen- 
dar, he intends to follow his pro- 
fession elsewhere. 

Succeeding Mr. Welteck as 
director for special resources is E. 
Lawrence Gibson, a development 
officer at Texas Christian Univer- 
sity in Fort Worth for the past 
five years. Born in Alligator, Mis- 
sissippi, he attended Millsaps Col- 
lege and transferred to Texas 
Christian, where he received a B.A. 
in geography and geology in 1951 
and an M.A.T. in geography in 
1972. He served four years 
(1952-56) in the U.S. Air Force, 
working in intelligence and attain- 
ing the rank of sergeant. He was a 
sales representative for several 
years for Sabena Belgian World 
Airlines and for a European divi- 
sion of the Texas Refinery Cor- 
poration. Most recently he has 
worked with T.C.U.'s alumni 
annual giving program on a chal- 
lenge grant campaign in Texas 
cities, the type of work he will be 
doing now for Sewanee. He is 
married and has a teenage son and 

Personnel and Summer 

University personnel director, 
picking up a responsibility held 
until his death by Arthur Cockett, 
is Margaret Keith-Lucas. Born in 
Sacramento, California and having 
grown up as a much-traveled mem- 
ber of a foreign service family, she 
has a B.A. in psychology from 
Swarthmore and a master's in 
social work from the University of 
North Carolina, Chapel Hill. She 
has been an eligibility specialist 
and hospital social worker in 
North Carolina and most recently 
a clinical social worker serving as 
marriage and family counselor for 
the Community Services of Great- 
er Chattanooga. Her husband is an 
assistant professor of psychology 
in the College and they have an 
infant son. 

Thomas Gibson, C'71, assistant 
director of the Bishop's Common, 
assumes another of Arthur 
Cockett's hats, that of summer 
conference coordinator. 

Watson for Leases 

Edward Watson, C'30, has 
taken up Sollace Freeman's duties 
as superintendent of leases (Mr. 
Freeman retired last year as assis- 
tant to the director of develop- 
ment for Church Support, but 
retained the work on leases until a 
successor could be found). Mr. 
Watson "retired" to Sewanee in 
1973. A lawyer, his background 
should serve the office well during 

a period of land use planning. He 
will continue his volunteer work as 
director of deferred giving for the 
development office and chairman 
of continuing gifts for the new

From a Talk to the Sewanee Woman's Club 

Illustrations by Jean Tallec 

^flPi.ii i it like to be a woman student in one 
of the seminaries of a church which does not 
ordain women? Most of the time it feels like a 
brief appearance which I made in 1968 in a play 
in Washington. 

After my husband died in Canada, I moved 
back to our house in Virginia. It had been rented 
for seven years. Before the furniture arrived, I 
camped in the house for three weeks with a lawn 
chair and cot, plastering and painting. I had never 
lived alone before and became very nervous about 
the many crime stories in the newspaper. At 
night, I put the stepladder in front of one door 
and crossed the broom and mop over each other. 
The vegetable knife was always on the floor 
beside my cot so that I could pare the burglar to 
death if he got past the broom and the mop. 

On the night before the furniture was deliver- 
ed, 1 had a shocking experience which made me 
even more panicky. I had fallen asleep, com- 
pletely exhausted, shortly after midnight. A short 
time later, with a crash worthy of Judgment Day, 
my metal cot collapsed on the bare wooden 
floor. The cat had been sleeping across my 
ankles. She rose into the air with a cry like a lost 
soul and bounded down the stairs in one giant 

I lay there in the wreckage of my life, crying 
hysterically. After a while I crawled to the phone 
and called my sister in Florida. She is a very 
sound sleeper. She advised me drowsily to call 
the local police. I didn't fancy telling a hard- 
bitten desk sergeant that my cot had fallen. 
Instead I dressed completely, down to my tennis 
shoes, and retired onto the fallen cot, with a firm 
grip on my vegetable knife. I decided it was 
easier to lie on the collapsed cot than to risk 
another fall. 

I slept fitfully until a quarter to five, when 
the furnace door fell spontaneously to the base- 
ment floor, a thing it would never have dared to 
do when my husband was alive. It was some time 
before I could bring myself to go— very slowly- 
down the stairs, vegetable knife extended, turning 
on lights in every room and carrying on a conver- 
sation in my highest and deepest voices to 
convince the axe murderer in the basement that 
he would have to reckon with two frightened 
widows instead of one. 

My life appeared to settle down after this ft 
I was still secretly terrified. An old friend invit< 
me to join a group of ladies who read plays an 
discussed them. They decided that we should I 
some plays together and we began with "0 
ligula" by Albert Camus. Since it is a modei 
play, I was sure it would be about two peopl 
exchanging mysterious remarks while sitting 
trash cans. That kind of play always provides 
useful interlude for making a mental grocery | 
or deciding whether to change the buttons on n 
spring coat. 

To my surprise, the play was actually ab 
the Roman Emperor Caligula. It was full 
violence, including the disrobing of a young 1 
who was dragged into the wings to be raped I 
the Emperor. Her realistic yelps offstage unsettle 
me badly. I decided to go out to the lobby an 
think about my coat buttons there. I startt 
down the aisle toward what I believed to be tk 

I had been talking when we entered 
theater. All I noticed was that we came through 
curtained doorway. Seeing one ahead, I hurrie 
through it and found myself in a tiny, dl 
enclosure filled with heating pipes. I had a feelin 
of being trapped. The screams onstage rose 
crescendo. So did my claustrophobia. I spran 
into the open, saw another curtained doorwa 
across the theater and ran toward it. 

Abruptly, I found myself in a blaze of ligl 
and surrounded by people. I was running aero 
the stage! In the Imperial Palace of anciei 
Rome— where the Emperor and his court we 
dressed in togas and sandals— there appears 
without warning, a lost American tourist, wearii 
glasses, a navy blue suit and high heels. Tl 
actors became statues petrified in the middle 
lines and gestures, except for Caligula, wh 
pawed at the air as if clutching for an invisib 
vegetable knife. The audience gave a delighti 
roar worthy of the Coliseum. I had a feeling < 
having done something very awkward, so I turni 
to the audience and shouted, "Oh please excu 
me, I'm trying to find a way out!" They roan 
again as I disappeared into the lobby. 

The audience gave a roar worthy of the Coliseum 

Scrambling to the top of the religion industry 

What I felt during that extraordinary moment 
was very like what I feel on the most ordinary 
day in the seminary. I have a feeling that I have 
run onto a stage at an unexpected and most 
untimely moment. No amount of ad libbing by 
the cast can explain my presence. Nothing has 
prepared them for my sudden appearance. They 
have frozen in their places, forgotten what they 
were saying and are pawing at the air. 

| haven't come here today to sell women's 
ministry to you. After two years in the seminary, 
I am convinced that I not only can't sell it, I 
can't even give it away. I can't tell you about the 
experience of the three other women in my 
seminary or that of women in other seminaries. 
All I can tell you about is my own experience. 

I think it can be best understood by consider- 
ing how we misplace our expectations, then try 
to make a person or a situation fit them. What is 
your picture of a woman studying for the 
ordained ministry? Unless you are that minority 
in any poll which says "No opinion," you do 
have an idea of what she is like. In the last years 
I have discovered what some of these pictures 
look like, as people have tried to make me fit 
them. There are probably many, but I have 
noticed four main types. 

The first is a high-powered woman evangelist 
in trailing white robes. The model for this picture 
is Aimee Semple McPherson, the redhead who 
founded the Foursquare Gospel and performed in 
front of a choir of shapely angels. If you are too 
young to remember the 1930s you are probably 
too young to imagine me shaking my brassy 
curls, and probably my hips, at heaven, while 
pleading soulfully for money. 

There is a second type of woman minister, 
who looms large nowadays in the public imagina- 
tion because of fears about women's liberation. 
She is a muscular man-hater who wears a Roman 
collar and riding boots. She blows cigar smoke 
into the eyes of bishops and her hobbies are 
picketing bra factories and skating in roller 

Another popular idea, to me the most compli- 
mentary, is that of a sort of civilian Salvation 
Army lass. She doesn't wear a bonnet or pass the 
tambourine in bars, but she hands out printed 
prayers, closes the eyes of the dead and threatens 
to pray for everyone she meets. Last summer, 

during my hospital training, some people saw me 
this way. They called me "Sister," mistaking me 
for one of the Roman Catholic nuns hired by the 
United Church of Christ hospital where I worked. 
Much as I would like to be this picture— it really 
isn't me. My love of practical jokes and refusal to 
leave the house, even if it is burning, without eye 
makeup, make me an unlikely subject for the 
portrait of a nun. 

The final type is one that Episcopal ministers 
and their female relatives secretly dread more 
than any other. She is the cold-eyed, mechanical- 
ly efficient woman executive, who scrambles to 
the top of the religion industry over a heap of 
the starved bodies of ministers and their families, 
whose rightful places went to her. I'm definitely 
not this one. Although I make good grades and 
am conscientious, I can produce affidavits from 
anyone who has ever known me that I am not 
efficient. For example, when I was forty-four I 
managed to get my driver's license on the fourth 
test because the examiner forgot to ask me to 
back up or make a U-turn. At an embassy party 
in 1965, I accidentally set fire to the suit of an 
Indonesian diplomat. I was a smoker then and I 
couldn't even smoke efficiently. Also, a drawer of 
my desk is set aside for the storage of unchecked 
bank statements six months to a year old. I can't 
understand why banks send them and I think of 
them as nuisance mail. I have never learned to 
type although I believe I could if the typewriter 
were arranged so that the keys were in alpha- 
betical order as they should be, and once I left 
the iron turned on at the cotton setting for three 
weeks while my husband was in Europe and I 
went home to visit my parents. By a miracle, it 
only burned the ironing board cover. And speak- 
ing of miracles, if I am ever ordained and 
employed by my Church, it will be a miracle, but 
not a miracle of efficiency. 

IVIy seminary experience has been deeply 
affected by other people's stereotyped expecta- 
tions of me. It has hurt me and made me angry 
that I am sometimes seen, especially in the 
seminary, as a type or a picture, not a human 

I'm afraid I give myself away when I say 
"especially in the seminary." You see, I had my 
own unrealistic picture, painted with even 
broader brush strokes, of what a religious 

Misplaced expectations 


/ expected saints, sitting i 
human pretzels 

the lotus position like 

l of holy 

seminary should be. I imagined it as a Christian 
version of a Buddhist monastery, set on a 
majestic slope of the Himalayas. The background 
music was to be the incessant ringing of church 
bells (on some nights I have a feeling that this 
part of the dream is coming true). My teachers 
would be silver-haired saints, all sitting in the 
lotus position, like a row of holy human pretzels. 
I think I had seen the Ronald Colman version of 
"Lost Horizon" too many times when I was a 
child. No seminary could be as good as I 
expected this one to be. 

I have also had some problems with the topic 
suggested to me for this talk, "The distaff side of 
the seminary." The distaff is the symbol of a 
housewife's vocation, and I don't own one any 
more. I have traded my distaff for different 
symbols— boxing gloves and a leper's bell. Those 
are the symbols of a female ministerial vocation. 
To tell you about the distaff side of the 
seminary, I would have to talk about the wives 
and I can't do that. That world is closed for me. 

I see the students' wives gathering to tell each 
other about imaginative ways to serve beans as a 
main course three times in one week. I see them 
picking over other people's old clothes in the 
mission barrel, looking for something to wear to 
church. I see how close they are to one another 
and remember a time when I had so many close 
friends that someone remarked that being my 
friend was about as much honor as joining the 

Sometimes, late at night, when I have been 
studying, I look out at the dark neighborhood 
and try to remember what it was like to watch 
TV, read a novel, go to the opera or give a dinner 

I am not completely separated from the 
seminary wives. I have a few friends, but my 
studying limits our time together. One of them 
gave me a poster for my last birthday which 
expresses this perfectly. It shows Snoopy lying on 
top of his doghouse while a bird looks wistfully 
at him. Snoopy is saying, "I have more to do 
than sit around and rap with a bird." And that's 
part of what it's like to be a seminarian, woman 
or man. 

I know that the townspeople think we 
worship strange gods at the seminary. Officially, 
we serve the Trinity, but in fact it is true that we 
have another god— and that god is Time. The 
seminary runs on Moonlight Savings Time and 
thirty-six-hour days. Our days and nights are 
crowded with attempts to learn everything we 
might ever need in any kind of ministry. Most 
people decide by the second year to settle for 
limited objectives to save their sanity and 
marriages. Because I feel very insecure about my 
future in the Church and I am infatuated with 
excellence, I have not been able to do this. 
Sometimes I see the sun rise as I finish studying. 

A mass of material is packed into seminarians' 
minds. We are like suitcases being gotten ready 
for a journey which may include the Belgian 
Congo and the Antarctic. Professors scurry 
around us screaming, "Don't forget the sun 


Boxing gloves and leper's bell 

helmet of salvation! Have you remembered the 
goat hair underwear of humility? Put in some 
anesthetic preaching to capture curious penguins! 
Has anyone packed the dark glasses of theology? 
At the same time, labels are pasted on the 
suitcase exteriors. They read, "First Quality- 
Genuine Pigskin," or "Contents May Explode,' 
or "Not Guaranteed Against Acts of God." 

■eople from the surrounding community have 
been kind enough to share some of their colorful 
beliefs about the seminary with me. Those of 
other denominations visualize it as the castle of a 
mad scientist, who makes monsters out of 
dismembered Christians. I want to reassure them 
that there are no scientists in our seminary. 

Local Episcopalians, on the contrary, are 
convinced that the seminary is a Communist 
conspiracy. It indoctrinates Castros in Roman 
collars who will infiltrate the Church to steal the 
keys of the Kingdom for Chairman Mao. 

How I hate to disappoint them with the news 
that the seminary is very much like any other 
small professional school which sometimes makes 
excessive demands on the time and abilities of its 
students. It is neither a community of saints, nor 
one of fiends, but only one of human beings. Far 
from its being a hotbed of communism, I would 
describe it as a cold bed of conservatism. When I 
say it isn't a community of saints, I must note 
one exception. I have finally discovered 
silver-haired saint there— Stiles Lines— but I have 
never caught him sitting in the lotus position. 

I have made a number of jokes about 
expectations, but they are jokes that try to tell 
the truth in a humorous way. There is one 
expectation I can't joke about. That is my 
vocation, or what I feel that God expects of me. 
I hope that I will be allowed to realize my 
vocation in hospital chaplaincy. 

It is hard to separate a woman's vocation 
from her traditional social role, which is indeed a 
vocation for some. I know because it used to be 
mine. It stands to reason that all women cannot 
be suited to the same vocation since, like men, 
they are individuals and very different from each 
other. Every woman cannot have the same 
vocation whether it is that of a housewife or of a 

Jesus seems to have had a deep appreciation 
of women as individuals. There is no record that 
he told the woman who dried his feet with her 
hair, that she should have done it with her veil 
instead. And I hope that his words to Mary, who 
chose to sit at his feet and learn, will be included 
in future ordination services for women: "She has 
chosen the better part; she shall not be 

You Can't Explain a Spirit 

by Jeff Gill, C'75 

An editorial broadcast May 9 over WUTS, Sewanee 

It is very difficult to write the last 
editorial of the year and being a 
senior makes the difficulty that 
much greater. There are many 
things that I would like to say 
about this University and her 
people, but can not because there 
is not enough time. However, to- 
night I am going to talk about 
several things. 

The chaplain, in ■ his sermon 
last Sunday, talked about spirit. 
He said: " 'Sewanee? Where's 
that?'— someone at home almost 
always asks, or 'What kind of 
school is it?' they ask while you're 
visiting an uncle in New Jersey or 
talking to a fellow worker at some 
summer camp somewhere. And 
probably you pull yourself togeth- 
er for the fiftieth time and begin 
to recite the statistics— located fif- 
ty-six miles northwest of Chatta- 
nooga, ninety miles south of Nash- 
ville, 10,000 acres on top of a 
mountain and so on. And maybe 
you quote a little history— how it 
was started before the Civil War, 
the cornerstone was blown up and 
was started again afterwards. Or 
maybe, if they're Episcopalians, 
you explain how it is the Church's 
only university owned by twenty- 
four dioceses. Or maybe you take 
a defensive stance and quote statis- 
tics about Rhodes Scholars and 
Woodrow Wilsons and the percent- 
age of graduates who go on to 
graduate study and so on. But 
then when you're through you're 
not so sure you've said anything at 
all. After all, how do you tell 
anyone what it is really like?" 

When visitors come to this 
school we take them into All 
Saints' Chapel, describe the interi- 
or and try to help them picture in 
their minds the splendor and ex- 
citement of opening Convocation 
or Commencement with all the 
faculty in academic costume and 
all the visiting bishops in their 
beautiful vestments. When the visi- 
tors leave Sewanee they may or 
may not be impressed. The guide 
who has shown these people 
around has to admit to himself 
that no matter how hard he tried 
he could not explain the true 
nature of Sewanee, except maybe 
in the enthusiasm of his speech. 
How does one explain the spirit 
that engulfs this place and those 
of us who live and study here? 

How does one explain the feel- 
ing that you get from being with 
Dr. Harrison on Thursday nights 

listening to music at his house, or 
being invited to the pub for a beer 
by a professor after class, or be- 
coming so much a part of a 
faculty member's family that you 
feel you are loved so much by 
them that you want to and do call 
them Mom and Dad? How do you 
explain this to a person who has 
stopped by Sewanee for a quick 

Two students' experiences at 
Sewanee are never exactly alike, 
but whether the experience is 
good, bad, or just neutral, it is 
impossible to deny the existence 
of this spirit or the effect that it 
has on our lives. I would venture 
to say that almost every student 
who has ever been here to live and 
study feels that he owes Sewanee 
something for what she has given 
to him. And looking at it realistic- 
ally we do owe her something. We 
owe her our devotion, our con- 
cern, our moral support, and our 
financial support. 

We have all heard the little 
phrase, "You are going to be the 
leaders of society one day." Well, 
in itself that's really not such a 
bad statement. However, I believe 
one of the words should be 
changed. Instead of the words "one 
day," the word should be now! We 
are the leaders of society now, 
especially here, and it's time we 
accept our role as leaders here. 
There is so much we can do for 
Sewanee now. Not only when we 
are here during the academic year, 
but also when we are home or on 
trips, any time that we are with 
other people. We owe it to Sewa- 
nee and we owe it to her now! 
Did you know that even those 
who pay their full tuition here 
receive a hidden scholarship of 
$4,000 a year? That's over 
$16,000 for the total academic 
career. That's a pretty substantial 
scholarship. But it seems that this 
hidden scholarship that we all re- 
ceive is just another example of 
the devotion and dedication of 
Sewanee for her students which is 
a part of this mysterious spirit. 

Certainly few of us are going 
to be in a position to support this 
school with large sums of money 
for several years and maybe not 
ever, but even small amounts help. 
However, where we have a much 
larger role to play is in the field of 
public relations. We are current 
students or soon-to-be graduates 
and there is no better way to 

show what this University stands 
for than through someone whose 
life is being influenced or recently 
has been influenced by it. We 
can't tell about the spirit of this 
place, but we can and do display 
it in our lives, even after we leave. 
By constantly remembering what 
this spirit has been to us and what 
it is to us now, we can't help but 
be enthusiastic about everything 
we do for Sewanee and there can 
be no end to using our abilities 
and resources to work hard for 
Sewanee to insure that the spirit 
of this place remains to affect the 
lives of those who come after us 
in the same wonderful way it has 
affected us. 

New York Times Praises Lytle Book 

A Wake for 
The Living 

A Family Chronicle. 

By Andrew Lytle. 

270 pp. New York: 

Crown Publishers. J8.95. 


Andrew Lytle, fresh out of 
Oxford, Vandeibilt and Yale, 
must have been one of the 
youngest contributors to that 
classic 1930 symposium, "I'll 
Take My Stand," in which John 
Crowe Ransom, Stark Young, 
Allen Tate, Robert Penn War- 
ren, Donald Davidson and half- 
a-dozen other Southerners, at 
the outset of the Great Depres- 
sion, told what was wrong with 
an increasingly industrialized, 
urbanized, secularized Ameri- 
ca. Since then, as teacher, 
novelist (The Long Night," 
"The Velvet Horn," etc.), critic, 
author of an outstanding biog- 
raphy of Bedford Forrest, edi- 
tor of the Sewanee Review 
(from 1961 until two years 
ago), Lytle has continued to 
explore, expand and document 
the human and spiritual con- 
cerns on which that memorable 
1930 stand was taken. 

Now "an aging and agra- 
rian Southern gentleman" 
(as one recent critic has called 
him), in "A Wake for the Living" 
he looks back not only over 
his own life but over the two 
centuries and more of his 
American heritage. It is a spir- 
ited, conversational narrative 
in which large historical events 
are tumbled together with fami- 
ly legend, odd bits of local 
lore and gusty anecdotes of 
varying relevance and proprie- 

We read how the Lytles land- 
ed in New Castle, Del., before 
1724, drifted up Into Pennsylva- 
nia, and in the 1750's migrated 
to North Carolina. Robert Lytle, 
loyal to the King, became a 
colonial official; his sons, when 
the Revolution came, served 
in the Continental line. At 
war's end, officers Archibald 
and William Lytle moved out 
through the wilderness to claim 
their lands grants in western 
North Carolina (now Tennes- 

The Lytles, their friends and

editor of the Book Review,

Appomattox" and other histori- 
cal writings about the South.

relations (in a close-knit sociely 
the two became one), cleared 
their acres in middle Tennessee, 
built their homes, created a 
self-sufficient society based on 
family-sized farms, essential 
handicrafts, small industry, a 
minimum of government. In 
the early 1800's William Lytle 
gave the land for a county 
seat, a schoolhouse, a church 
(those three basic institutions 
of Western civilization). Here 
at Murfreesboro for nearly two 
centuries the Lytles have cen- 
tered, family and community 
drawing strength the one from 
the other. 

"In the courthouse a man 
did his public business; at home 
his private business. The 
private and public acts were 
separate and so defined the 
individual in all his parts. The 
front door is the symbol for 
both. . . . Not to know the 
difference between the public 
thing, the res publico, and the 
intimate is to surrender that 
delicate balance of order which 
alone makes the estate a serv- 
ant and not the people the 
servant of the state." That met- 
aphor of the door is no casual 
one. When the author comes 
to write his account of the 
Civil War years, he titles it 
"The Broken Door." 

But first he traces the flush 
times through the 1850's, "the 
high noon of this community." 
He describes in specific and 
picturesque detail the antebel- 
lum life of town and country. 
He considers the economics and 
rationale of slavery, the rela- 
tions between servants and 
masters. Here as elsewhere he 
moves philosophically from the 
specific to the general: "Slave- 
ry mostly was considered a 
necessary evil or one that had 
been inherited. Since this insti- 
tution had been a part of the 
common life ever since the 
opening up of the country, most 
people made the best of it 
Grandma considered everybody 
who lived on her place, black 
or white, as members of her 
family. A family is never a 
democracy, for the parents hold 
the authority. K is hierarchical 
always, even down to the 
spoiled last child of 'aging 
lions, exposing the weakness 
of authority which tests too 

Then he adds, "It was the 
absentee - owned plantations, 
brought about by the Industrial 
Revolution, specifically the cot- 
ton gin and English and New 
England mills, that modified 
slavery by introducing abstract 
or nonfamilial rule. The slave 
in these instances was no long- 
er a member of a domestic 
community but subject to all

Former Editor, the Sewanee R 

the inadequacies in human 
terms apparent in those corpor- 
ations which later grew out 
of this absentee landlordism." 
As for the Civil" War. which 
brought an end to slavery 
and, indeed, created a new na- 
tion, Lytle says, "I will not 
try to paraphrase or explore 
its meaning except in small 
family incidents, which may 
or may not be descriptive." 
Yet there are quick vignettes 
of military matters here in the 
upper, middle South and of 
the war's effect on its people. 
One effect was that "the South 
united by defeat, became an 
economic province of the East. 
. . . bankers would lend money 
on the world crops of cotton 
and tobacco. Self-sufficiency 
was frowned upon." 

The Lytles struggled through 
the hard times, patching up 
their families, too, by marriages 
and mergers that still further 
complicated already confused 
relationships. Thus: "In the 
fall of 1865 my grandfather 
Robert Lytle, his first family 
dead, married Mammy, his 
father's great-niece. His father- 
in-law was his first cousin." 

Lytle remembers the town's 
quiet and even pace in the 
early years of the century. "The 
noise we suffec today was ab- 
sent . . . business was done, 
but the general interest was 
the inexhaustible complexities 
of the' actions of 'human beings, 
not statistics about people in 
mass, but persons as they be- 
have to one' another." There 
were no charity drives through 
which "professional organiza- 

tions give money to people 
they never see collected from 
.people they do not know"— yet 
there was charity when needed, 
for black and white. "There 
was no television to canker 
the minds and lull them into 

Not that ail was perfect in 
a Tennessee Eden. The tradi- 
tional Southern violence, a car- 
ry-over from the wilderness 
and frontier days, was still 
evident. Drunkenness and 
domestic untranquility were 
not unknown. The county sher- 
iff, in his cups, stabbed An- 
drew's father in an altercation 
at the Fair Grounds, and the 
jury freed him because, as one 
said, "the Sheriff is a pore 
man and Bob Lytle is a rich 

Such a world produced way- 
ward and colorful characters, 
given to picturesque ges- 
tures. Andrew's father, for no 
particular reason, once planted 
12 acres of roses on his moun- 
tain farm, and purchased* at 
an auction a steamboat for 
which he had no use, A youth- 
ful Andrew, expressing to a 
recently widowed aunt the 
thought that she could look 
forward to a reunion with her 
husband in the hereafter, was 
told, "No doubt . . . but most

One wonders at last who 
are the living, who are the 
dead. Is this a wake for the 
past or the present? Each read-

The 24-Hour 

Much of education has noth- 
ing to do with courses and 
classrooms. After classes 
and after dinner in a Board- 
ing School, students and 
teachers are in studios, labs, 
lounges, athletic activities — 
on and off campus. 
When students attend local 
schools, their fellow stu- 
dents are from the same 
town, and often have simi- 
lar viewpoints. Only in 
Boarding Schools do they 
learn with students from 
often more than 30 states 
and many foreign countries. 
Somehow, sometime, a girl 
or a boy has to leave home to 
find out who she or he is. 
Sometimes college is time 
enough, but not always. The 
time to invest in education is 
when the need is obvious. A 
24-hour school is simply 
more in every way. 
This attractive alternate in 
education is found Only in 
Boarding Schools. It 
might just be your best 
choice — as a student, as a

Annual Meeting and Homecoming 
Something new must be brewing 
in alumni activity as all available 
space on the Mountain was 
booked solid for the big College 
Alumni Weekend, October 3-4, by 
mid-August. Overflow crowd from 
the Holiday Inn, Monteagle, took 
all available space at the DuBose 
Conference Center's new building. 

All will begin with a dinner 
dance Friday night at the Sewanee 
Inn. Music will be provided by 
William Porcher DuBose III, C'77, 
and the Syncopators (no rock!). 
The return to the commencement 
format of some years ago was the 
special wish of the last alumni 
president, Humphreys McGee, who 
consummated plans for the entire 
weekend when he came to the 
Mountain for his last regents' 

Reunions were planned from 
six months to a year in advance. 
From the classes of 1928 through 
1931, sixty persons (including 
wives) were expected at press 
time. Also, from 1925, ten attend- 
ing, 1935-six, 1950-forty, 
1955-sixteen, 1960-six, 1965- 

Presiding officer at the annual 
meeting of the Associated Alumni 
will be Albert Roberts, C'50. The 
meeting will be in the Bishop's 
Common lounge followed by 
Bloody Marys and lunch, the tra- 
ditional pre-game nourishment. 
The game: Sewanee vs. Austin 

Academy Alumni 

Alumni coming for class reunions 
and many others will gather for 
the annual meeting, festivities and 
the usual St. Andrew's gridiron 
tilt, October 10-11. Since this also 
will be Academy Parents' Week- 
end, a large and gala gathering is 
expected. A joint buffet dinner 
will be available for alumni and 
parents after the game. 

R. Marshall Walter, A'58, is 
president of Sewanee Academy 
alumni and will preside at the 
board of governors' meeting just 
preceding the annual meeting in 
Hargrove Auditorium on Saturday 

St. Luke's Convocation 
The Rev. John Drake, T'45, presi- 
dent of St. Luke's alumni, has 
issued a special appeal to all alum- 
ni and friends of the School of 
Theology to attend this year's St. 
Luke's Convocation, October 

"The events planned for St. 
Luke's Day and lectures by the 
former Presiding Bishop, John 
Hines (C'30), are highly attractive. 
I cannot be too firm in my call to 
you to make your plans now for 
the best of days," Mr. Drake 
wrote in his most recent message 
to the St. Luke's constituency. 
Bishop Hines' subject will be

St. Luke's Alumni Directory 

A directory of St. Luke's alumni 
has just been published by the St. 
Luke's Alumni Association under 
the direction of the Rev. Bill 
Burks, T'71, alumni vice-president 
for regions, and Dean Holmes with 
staff assistance from the alumni 
director. The directory was sent to 
all alumni of the seminary. Any 
alumnus who does not receive a 
copy may write the alumni office 
and one will be sent promptly. 
The dean has exhorted all alumni 
to keep the alumni office posted 
on address changes so that the 
revised directory a year hence can 
be completely updated. 

Sewanee Clubs 

Sewanee Club affairs held in May 
and June were: Mississippi Delta 
with Gilbert Gilchrist as speaker 
and Warner Ballard, C'71, elected 
new club president; Houston, 
which featured a diving exhibition 
by a 1976 Olympics trainee and a 
tennis tournament put together by 
Palmer Kelly, C'65; New Orleans 
at the new home of club president 
Brooke Dickson, A'61; Atlanta's 
summer cocktails honoring Dr. Gil- 
christ and Southern California's 
outing in Arcadia Park with Jim 
Helms, Jr., C'49, at the helm; and 
Dallas' annual spring meeting at 
the Dallas Country Club with Tom 
Boardman, C'68, in charge. 

Nashville Party 

One hundred alumni and friends 
were present for the annual Nash- 
ville summer picnic August 7 held 
for the second year on the lawn of 
the Hunter McDonalds' residence. 
Present were current students and 
prospects who met admissions 
director Al Gooch. 

Credit for the planning and 
superb attendance go to the Sewa- 
nee Club of Nashville headed by 
Tom Black, C'58, and especially 
Rob Crichton, C'71, and Pete 
Stringer, A'67, C'71, in charge of 

Alumni in Admissions 

Two alumni have taken admissions 
posts at Sewanee beginning this 
fall. Grant LeRoux, C'68, is the 
new director of admissions at the 
Sewanee Academy and Edward 

Harrison, who graduated in June, 
has joined the staff of Albert

To the Editor: 

I have just received the latest edition 
of the Sewanee News, and was astound- 
ed to see that you have changed the 
name of your letters to the editor 
column to "Feedback." I am by trade 
a technical writer and editor, and am 
accustomed to seeing that word abused 
by semiliterate engineers, but to see it 
abused in the Sewanee News is intol- 

"Feedback" is a perfectly good 
noun, most commonly used to describe 
what happens in a public address 
system when the sound coming out of 
the speakers goes back into the micro- 
phone, back out the speakers and back 
into the microphone ... ad infinitum. 
It's a vicious circle, and in practice 
every effort is made to avoid feedback 
in a PA because of the high, painful 
sound it makes. 

I am not writing you a feedback, I 
am writing you a letter. If you would 
like a feedback, then I will mail you 
the issue of the Sewanee News which I 
just received, and then you can reprint 
it and mail it back to me.

A goal set for the junior class 
of the School of Theology is em- 
pathy with, and even entrance 
into, the thought patterns of Juda- 
ism at the time of Christ. The firSt 
semester consists of almost total 
immersion in Old Testament and 
its background. The period gen- 
erally runs longer than the regular 
college semester as the large 
amount of material to be covered 
does not necessarily fit into the 
"school calendar." 

This year, to enrich and deep- 
en understanding of Christian Jews 
of the first century, twenty-three 
of the junior students and faculty 
journeyed to Cincinnati in Febru- 

The first morning there, Satur- 
day, began with an exciting shared 
celebration of Shabbat at the Plum 
Street Temple. The Temple is 
enormous, very ornate, completely 
unique, and highly faithful to 
early architectural specifications in 
scripture. An awesome sense of 
the God of Moses pervades the 

The services are from a Book 
of Jewish Common Prayer that 
astonishingly resembles the 1928 
book. One small difference is that | 
the book is in alternate Hebrew 
and English and large portions are 
read in both languages sequentially 
by the Rabbi alone and responsive- 
ly by the Rabbi and the congrega- 
tion. The opening of the Holy of 
Holies, removal and reading of the 
Torah, and ritual replacement of 
the Law were very moving. Every 
member of the congregation had a 
copy of scripture and a prayer 
book provided by the Temple. The 
scripture is in Hebrew and in 
English; this book contains more 
exegetical material than actual 
scripture. These people truly read, 
mark, leam and study their scrip- 

Following Rabbi Goldman's 
sermon, visitors were invited to 
stay and ask questions after a brief 
explanation of the why's and 
wherefore's of the service. There 
were few questions but much 
astonishment, as Rabbi Goldman 
exhibited a thorough knowledge of 
our worship. He pointed out, for 
example, that one of the prayers 

used in the service was the basis 
from which Jesus taught the 
Lord's Prayer. 

Yielding reluctantly to a tight 
schedule the class made the drive 
from Plum Street Temple to He- 
brew Union College, the "home 
office" seminary for Reform Juda- 
ism in the United States. The 
junior class shared the sabbath 
meal with seminarians at Hebrew 
Union. The meal was preceded by 
wine and consisted of prime roast 
beef, marinated herring in sour 
cream, more wine, challah, beets, 
and chocolate eclairs homemade 
with heavy cream and fresh eggs. 
We were told that this is a normal 
sabbath meal and that the food 
quality does not vary greatly from 
this at any time. The thought 
patterns of the Sewanee junior 
class were certainly becoming 
more Jewish at this point. 

After lunch, Professor Samuel 
Sandmal spoke and shared in a 
seminar-type class environment. He 
is professor of New Testament at 
Hebrew Union and is extremely 
well qualified. The most generally 
expressed regret of the Sewaneeans 
was that much, much more time 
could not have been spent with 
Dr. Sandmal. 

The class was then assigned to 
a seminarian, Steve Perry, who 
acted as a guide for the rest of the 
visit to Hebrew Union. Perry is a 
second-year student there. He 
informed the class that a rabbini- 
cal student spends five years in 
seminary, the first in Jerusalem 
and succeeding years in either New 
York City, Cincinnati or Los An- 
geles. Five to eight languages are 
generally required and a great deal 
of work is done in New Testa- 

Steve Perry knowledgeably 
guided the class through exhibits 
in the archeological museum of 
Hebrew Union's department of 
antiquities. One of the high spots 
of the visit was a tour of the 
school's rare book room. The 
room is highly monitored and the 
smoke from a striking match sets 
off a very sensitive alarm. Tem- 
perature and humidity are regula- 
ted to within half a degree. 
Among the many items in the rare 

book collection is a page from the 
original Gutenberg Bible and, of 
special interest to these visitors, a 
mint copy of an 1801 Book of 
Common Prayer. Also of great 
interest were many extremely 
small copies of prayer books that 
were used by Jews at various times 
under persecution. They were 
designed to be concealed on vari- 
ous parts of the body, under the 
arm, etc., in the event of capture, 
frisking, or random inspection by 
the authorities. 

After the all-too-short visit to 
Hebrew Union, the class proceeded 
to Bishop Krumm's house, where 
the diocesan provided hors 
d'oeuvres, cocktails and warm fel- 
lowship for the entire class. Cin- 
cinnati's Saturday night life round- 
ed off a full visit. The trip back to 
Sewanee next day was made by a 
closer, more loving, warmer junior 
class community of Jewish Chris-

of the Sewanee Academy, the College of Arts and 
Sciences and the School of Theology, the regents 
and trustees present. 

The Rt. Rev. William Jones of Missouri, 
GST'62, newest bishop member of the board of 
trustees, preached the sermon and was awarded 
the honorary degree of Doctor of Divinity by the 
Chancellor, Bishop Allin. Bishop Jones was cited 
as "combining evangelistic zeal, personal and 
spiritual depth, and managerial skills." 

In his sermon Bishop Jones stressed the 
"community of saints, known and unknown, in 
the history of the Christian church and in the 
university, for whom this chapel was named." He 
cited the designers, people who gave money and 
the builders, and told the present faculty and 
student body that they are accountable in their 
persons, deeds and aspirations to all those who 
had made the day possible. 

Bishop Allin, speaking informally, also 
touched on the singling out of the Sewanee 
product. "Sewanee does more with her own than 
they realize," he said. Drawing on a figure from 
horse racing he said, "This university puts her 
colors upon us because she expects us to perform 

He gave special memorial recognition to two 
outstanding alumni and benefactors who died 
recently and members of whose families were 
present, G. Cecil Woods of Chattanooga and Ben 
Humphreys McGee of Leland, Mississippi. He also 
praised Arthur Cockett, who was university per- 
sonnel director before his recent sudden death.

4,636 Donors Give $2,147,982 

An overwhelming success! 

How very grateful we are to be able to use 
these three words to describe the outcome of our 
Million Dollar Program this year. As of August 
31, 1975, $1,055,370 in unrestricted budget- 
elated MDP gifts were received. This total repre- 
sented a $320,000 increase over the MDP gifts in 
hand on August 31, 1974, and was more unre- 
stricted money than had ever been received in 
any previous twelve-month period in Sewanee's 

In addition to this gift total, we also had 
$185,000 in firm pledges payable during the 
1975-76 fiscal year. 

Three innovative approaches this past year 
contributed much toward making this success 
possible. One was the very exciting $100,000 
Matching Grant Challenge which was launched on 
September 1, 1974. Our stated goal was to secure 
$200,000 in new or increased gifts in order to 
"earn" the $100,000 challenge money. As of 
August 31, 1975, we had in fact secured 
$385,525 in new or increased gifts over and 
above the $100,000 given by the challengers. We 
are deeply grateful to the fifteen benefactors who 
created this matching grant. 

A second innovation was the organization of 
Metro-Area Campaigns, using classical time-proven 
campaign procedures. Successful "mini- 
campaigns" were conducted in fourteen metropol- 
itan areas. These programs not only provided 
greatly increased financial returns, but they also 
lotivated greater numbers of alumni to become 
more deeply involved in and committed to 
Sewanee's immediate and future welfare. 

A third exciting breakthrough was achieved in 
the all-important area of major gift solicitations. 

new gift category was created and named the 
Chancellor's Society to recognize benefactors con- 
tributing $10,000 or more annually in unrestrict- 
ed MDP gifts. Seventeen charter members were 
enlisted in this society this year largely through 
the fine efforts of Robert M. Ayres, Jr., the 
Vice-Chancellor, and several of the regents. 

A word about Mr. Ayres. A former chairman 
of the board of regents who has been re-elected 
to the board, he last year accepted the chairman- 
ship of the Million Dollar Program for a two-year 
term. Not every volunteer can take a year off 
from his business as Bob has done; nevertheless, 
the seriousness of his personal commitment has 
been contagious and we have seen it matched in 
quality time and time again by other Sewanee 
volunteers. This is tremendously important 
because there are some tasks which are essential 
to private institutions which can best be per- 
formed by volunteers. Securing gifts at the higher 

levels is one of them. The whole concept of the 
Million Dollar Program is volunteer-oriented. 

Total '74-75 Gifts $2,167,982 

This was a year of transition in that the 
terminal date of the MDP campaign year did not 
coincide with the newly adopted fiscal year 
ending June 30, 1975. Under the revised ten- 
month operating budget of $7,750,870, the 
expenditures exceeded revenues by the relatively 
small margin of $51,000, less than 17c. 

The operating budget for the current fiscal 
year 1975-76 has been set at $10,212,720. In 
order to meet this budget, a minimum of 
$1,200,000 in unrestricted gifts and grants must 
be secured. 

Even with the necessity of concentrating our 
efforts on securing unrestricted budget-related 
gifts, we should not lose sight of the importance 
of our total gift receipts, i.e., gifts from all 
sources for all purposes. The total for the 
campaign year just ended came to a very encour- 
aging $2,167,982. 

Church Support gifts totaling $222,862 were 
received from the missions, parishes, and dioceses 
of the Episcopal Church, primarily, but not 
entirely, from the twenty-four dioceses owning 
the University. Surely, if we could find an 
adequate way to communicate more effectively 
the infinite worth and excitement of this place to 
the 600,000 Episcopalians in these twenty-four 
dioceses, this level of giving would dramatically 

Alumni Still Below 25% 

The annual financial commitment of no group 
is more important and significant than that of 
our alumni. For these former students definitely 
have more reason to make annual gifts than any 
other individuals. Surely, we can encourage many 
of the 75% who do not presently contribute to 
do so and, thus, become involved in and com- 
mitted to Sewanee in a very real way. 

I want to express our deepest gratitude to our 
alumni, parents, and friends who contributed 
financially during the past year and especially to 
those who gave generously of their own time and 
effort. Let me assure you that we here at 
Sewanee appreciate the importance of your sus- 
tained concern, commitment and assistance. To 
those of you who are not supporting the Univer- 
sity, for whatever reason, we will continue tact- 
fully but persistently to bring our case to you. 
We need your interest, your commitment, and 
your giving. We pledge to you that we will utilize 
the proceeds of your generous gifts in the 
strictest sense of sound stewardship and under 
the best possible business management pro- 

On behalf of the entire University com- 
munity, may I say that we hope to have the 
opportunity of welcoming you to the campus 
during the coming year. 

Respectfully and gratefully submitted, 

William U. Whipple |

Mrs. A. J. Grimes 

Mrs. James M. Grimes 

My students love the Quixotic aspect of their liberal 
education once they become aware of it. They are thrilled 
to hear John Henry Newman assuring them that the 
tradition into which they are being initiated is one which 
places a value on the kind of person they become rather 
than the function they will one day perform. They come to 
see that their education can mean the difference between 
freedom and slavery, between real happiness and the threat 
of despair. For a man who sees himself and the world only 
in terms of the function he performs, no matter how lofty 
that function may be, remains a slave, doing something that 
needs to be done, and seeing all life in terms of his job and 
the rewards it offers. The general knowledge of the many 
aspects of creation which a liberally educated man aims to 
attain allows him to understand his place in the universe, to 
experience the freedom from function which the intellec- 
tual and spiritual nature of man makes possible. A technical 
or professional education can provide a man with a place in 
the world, but the ideal of liberal education is in a sense to 
give him the world, to allow him to know it in a general 
way which involves a kind of possession of it.

The Sewanee student is in many respects a sort of walking 
time machine. He is a living guarantee that as long as this 
University exists there will be ladies and gentlemen who 
demand individuality in their personal lives and expect 
honor and integrity in their fellow man.

Financial Aid Totals $1,461,979 

Forty-five per cent of students in 
the College receive some form of 
financial aid, totaling $1,139,600, 
an increase of $140,000 over last 
year. Thirty-seven of the School of 
Theology's seventy-six (48%) re- 
ceive a total of $75,969, plus 
about twice that from their spon- 
soring bishops and parishes. The 
figure for the Sewanee Academy is 
$94,410, with 25% of students 
aided. Grand total: $1,461,979. 

This sum is in addition to the 
"hidden scholarship"— the differ- 
ence between tuition and fees and 
cost per student to the university 
—estimated at an average of 
$3,000 apiece for the 1,316 per- 
sons enrolled in the three units, 
totaling $3,948,000. 

The increase in the amount of 
aid and the number of aided stu- 
dents in the College derives partly 
from a raise in eligibility at various 
levels of family income by the 
College Scholarship Service, to 
which the University of the South 
as well as most comparable col- 
leges subscribes. A more realistic 
view of what middle income fam- 
ilies should be expected to provide 
enabled Sewanee to help more 
generously than before. The in- 
crease also reflects the increased 
cost and is designed to compensate 
for inflation. 

The Tennessee legislature this 
year did not renew its grants pro- 
gram so that many Tennessee 
students had a sharp drop in sup- 
port from non-Sewanee sources, 
which was made up to some 
extent by larger loans. 

Aid Based on Need 

All financial aid to college 
students is based on need as dem- 
onstrated by the Parents' Confi- 
dential Statement of financial 
resources, administered by the 
College Scholarship Service. Aid 
comes from many kinds of sources 
and is given in "packages" of gifts, 
loans and work, the packages care- 
fully tailored to each individual by 
Elizabeth N. Chitty, director of 
financial aid. 

Gifts come from nearly one 
hundred endowed scholarships, 
annual gifts for scholarships and 
appropriations for remissions of 
tuition (the last primarily for chil- 
dren of Episcopal clergymen and 

Work on campus 
is expected of most 
students who receive 

Josie Caldwell 

members of faculty and staff, 
among the few grants not based 
on need). Some of the endowed 
scholarships specify geographical 
or other restrictions, such as major 
subject or career intentions. Scat- 
tered requests imposed on the 
recipients tend to be very modest. 
Holders of the Benjamin H. Fray- 
ser Scholarship are expected to 
read a monograph on Major Fray- 
ser's life. The recipient of the 
George Shall Kausler Scholarship 
"is to know in whose name the 
scholarship functions." The Hinton 
Fort Longino Scholarship may be 
in the form of either a loan or a 
gift, "but the donor hopes that a 
student who receives a gift will 
later contribute an equal amount 
so that other students may be 
benefited." The Jessie Ball duPont- 
Frank A. Julian Scholarship carries 
a similar hope. 

Wilkins Grants Extended 

The largest scholarship endow- 
ment is that from the Georgia M. 
Wilkins bequest, $953,078. Wilkins 
Scholars are designated on the 
basis of their promise for academic 
accomplishment, leadership and 
character, and the amount given 
each is determined by need. Which 
Wilkins Scholars are aided and 
which not, is not disclosed. In the 
past entering freshmen have re- 
ceived this honor, but this year 
the scholarships have been extend- 
ed to some upperclassmen in an 
effort to accord both funds and 
recognition to the most worthy. 

Gifts from federal funds, the 
Basic Educational Opportunity 
Grants and Supplementary Educa- 
tional Opportunity grants, total 
$136,000 this year, about equally 
divided between the two programs. 

Loans from University loan 
funds, National Direct Student 
Loans and other sources total 
$260,000. One of Mrs. Chitty's 
concerns is so to balance work, 
loan and gift that no one incurs an 
unrealistic indebtedness. She re- 
ports that repayment has been 
good. "The high rates of loss that 
have been publicized recently do 
not usually apply to four-year col- 
leges," she says. Also, many banks 
have not liked to carry the feder- 
ally insured loans long and have 
turned them over to government 

agencies to collect when they 
could. Most loans for whose col- 
lection the government has picked 
up the responsibility have been 
repaid in a reasonable time. 

Work Required 

Work on campus is expected 
of most students who receive 
scholarships, with care taken that 
the amount of time given does not 
interfere with studies. Jobs, 
matched up to workers' abilities 
by the indefatigable financial aid 
office, range from washing labora- 
tory glassware to photography. 
One student proofreads Latin for a 
professor. Student reporters are 
assigned to the public relations 
office and the athletic department. 
Fine arts students serve as depart- 
mental secretaries, gallery attend- 
ants and slide catalogers. 

Some students, relatively few, 
are paid for special skills out of 
budget without regard to need for 
aid. Recording technicians are an 
example. University guides, in- 
cluding aided and unaided stu- 
dents, who serve largely in All 

Saints' Chapel, are paid out of 
budget so as not to infringe on 
church-state separation in the 
work-study format which makes 
use of federal funds. 

It all adds up to making good 
the catalog statement, "The Col- 
lege of Arts and Sciences is com- 
mitted to the principle that insofar 
as possible no student whose appli- 
cation for admission is accepted 
will be denied the opportunity to 
attend because of financial need." 
This is not only a moral commit- 
ment but an academic one. It 
would be a sorry college that had 
to limit itself to the sons and 
daughters of the rich. Even they 
would be deprived if they were 
not exposed to a mingling of 
minds of high capability from 
diverse backgrounds. 

The University appropriated 
$93,000 in the current hard- 
pressed budget to ensure that the 
need for financial aid is met. "We 
are putting our money first on our 
people," Vice-Chancellor J. Jeffer- 
son Bennett has said. 

Bishop Bailey Elected 
Coadjutor of West Texas 

The Rt. Rev. Scott Field Bailey, 
GST'53, H'65, was elected Bishop 
Coadjutor of West Texas Septem- 
ber 3. He had been Suffragan 
Bishop of Texas since 1964 and 
hence already a trustee of the 
University. He is secretary of the 
House of Bishops and Executive 
Officer of the General Convention. 
He was elected Bishop Coadjutor 
of Northwest Texas in 1970 but 
declined, and his name was also 
among four considered recently 
for Bishop of Missouri. 

Bishop Bailey was born in 
1916 in Houston. He has his B.A. 
from Rice University, B.D. from 
Virginia Theological Seminary and 
S.T.M. from the University of the 
South. He also studied law at the 
University of Texas. 

He served parishes in Texas 
from 1942 to 1951 save for three 
years as a Navy chaplain during 
World War II. For ten years he 
was rector of All Saints' Church, 

Austin, and director of Episcopal 
student activities at the University 
of Texas, then in 1961 went to 
Houston as administrative assistant 
to the Bishop of Texas. He was 
designated Canon to the Ordinary 
in 1962 and was elected suffragan 
bishop two years later. 

He and his wife, the former 
Evelyn Louise Williams, have four 
children including a daughter, 
Sarah, who is a student in the 

Four other Sewanee alumni 
were among the twelve nominees 
for Bishop Coadjutor of West 
Texas: the Rev. Maurice M. 
Benitez, T'58, H'73, rector of St. 
John the Divine, Houston; the 
Rev. Stanley F. Hauser, C'43, rec- 
tor of St. Mark's, San Antonio; 
the Rev. Robert E. Ratelle, T'47, 
rector of St. James', Jackson, Mis- 
sissippi; and the Rev. James P. 
DeWolfe, Jr., C'39, All Saints', 
Fort Worth.

SIZE: Distance from west 
wall to altar: 212 feet. 
From floor to keystones of 
vaulting: 51 feet. Tower 
height: 134 feet. 

Struck by the size and 
splendor of the building, 
visitors often comment that 
it should be called a cathe- 
dral rather than a chapel; 
but the term "cathedral" is 
used only for the church of 
the bishop of a diocese. 
Neither is All Saints' a par- 
ish church. It is the chapel 
of an institution, the Uni- 
versity of the South. Here 
all the major ceremonies of 
the academic year are held, 
always in a frame of re- 
convocation, installation of 
major officers, commence- 
ment, etc. Regular and 
special services are held 
with great frequency. Al- 
though the chapel has a 
capacity of 1 ,200, special 
v overfill it. 

ORGAN: Built by Casavant 
Freres of St. Hyacinth, 
Quebec, it is composed of 
five divisions, 70 ranks, 
numbering between 3,000 
and 4,000 pipes. 

CARILLON: The 56-bell 
Leonidas Polk Memorial 
Carillon is one of the larg- 
est and truest-toned in the 
world. The bells range from 
7,500 to 22 pounds. They 
are played in concert every 
Sunday afternoon and on 
special traditional occa- 
sions, such as Walpurgis 
Night, April 30, when ac- 
cording to ancient custom 
witches are scoured from 




the gift of the late William 
Dudley Gale II of Nash- 

front of the chapel is the 
great Farish Rose Window, 
similar to that in Notre 
Dame de Paris. The narthex 
windows below depict the 
history of the University of 
the South 's first century. 
The altar and clerestory 
windows, given as memori- 
als by a number of bene- 
factors, show many aspects 
of the life of Christ, the 
church and its ministry. In 

ieved to be 
only representation of a 
pope in any Protestant 
church in America. Newest 
of the windows illustrates 
the ministry of the church 
and its sacraments, and 
honors Dr. Rufus Fort, 
father of Dudley Fort of 
Nashville and grandfather 
of Dr. Dudley Fort, Jr. of 
Sewanee. Aisle windows 
show figures representing 
each of the academic dis- 
ciplines taught at the uni- 

STALLS: Each bishop of 
the owning dioceses, all of 
whom are trustees of the 
university, has his own stall 
in the sanctuary, blazoned 
with his diocesan seal. Pro- 
fessors are assigned stalls 
opposite the choir, accord- 
ing to seniority. 

for the Sanctuary are 
covered with needlepoint 
made by churchwomen 
from the University's own- 
ing dioceses, led by Mrs. 
Calvin Schwing of Plaque- 
mine, La. The design of the 
needlework follows the ex- 
ample of. early Christian art 
in the Holy Land, which 
used the plants and animals 
of Galilee in church decora- 
tion. Some of the trees, 
foliage, blossoms and flow- 
ering plants native to Sewa- 
nee are woven into the 
needlework patterns. Moun- 
tain laurel, dogwood and 
wild azalea ornament the 
cushions and kneelers for 
the Bishop's Chairs. The 
altar rail's long kneeling 
cushions feature the Lion 
and the Lamb, with the 
Lion shown as a mountain 
lion or lynx. The sun, the 
moon and the stars appear, 
along with a variety of 
ornamental plants. 

Student guides are on call 
at any time outside of class 
hours to guide visitors 
through the chapel and ex- 
plain points of interest. 


Memorial to All Benefactors 

Sixty -five is the University's compulsory 
retirement age now, but it is the age at which All 
Saints' Chapel begins its consecrated life. 

When the University of the South opened its 
doors in 1868 the first classes were held in the 
modest wooden St. Augustine's Chapel, predeces- 
sor to All Saints'. The present building includes a 
small chapel with the original name and many of 
the old furnishings. 

At the turn of the century a large chapel, 
befitting the Episcopal Church's education center 
at Sewanee, was projected and designs made by 
the noted architect Ralph Adams Cram. Construc- 
tion began in 1905 but in the Panic of 1907 the 
bank in which chapel funds were deposited failed, 
and construction stopped until a temporary 
wooden roof was put on in 1910. It was called 
All Saints', as a memorial to all benefactors of 
the university.. 

When the University of the South celebrated 
its centennial in 1957-58 (1857 was the year 
commemorated, when a group of southern 
bishops agreed to build a university) the owning 
dioceses pledged funds to carry out the long- 
projected completion of the chapel. Edward 
McCrady, then vice-chancellor, who numbers 
architecture among his many skills, modified the 
Cram plans to accommodate gifts of the 56-bell 
Leonidas Polk Memorial Carillon and Farish Rose 
Window and adapt to other changes that had 

The temporary roof was removed and a new 
high vaulted ceiling designed by Dr. McCrady. 
The walls of the nave were heightened to accom- 
modate large windows, the chancel was enlarged 
and a narthex or entrance, Shapard Tower to 
house the carillon, and a wing for offices were 
added to the original stone walls. The marble 
High Altar was given by Mrs. Calvin Schwing, 
H'70, of Plaquemine, Louisiana, and a sculptured 
limestone reredos by her mother-in-law, Mrs. 
Edward B. Schwing. The original chancel furnish- 
ings were renovated and duplicated to fill out the 
larger chancel. (Experts find it hard to tell the 
new from the old.) Twenty -two bishops' chairs 
and a Casavant organ were among the additions. 

Much was retained, such as historic stones 
from ancient English churches that had been 
given to symbolize the continuity of the Anglican 
Communion, flags of the states which contain the 
owning dioceses, an original Confederate battle 
flag, a fragment of the University's cornerstone 
which had been blown up by Union troops 
during the Civil War, memorial plaques, etc. The 
flag of the state of Massachusetts, which had 
hung in error for Missouri for forty years, had 
been identified a few years before and was 

Again funds were not sufficient to cover the 
cost and a large debt was incurred. It has 
gradually been reduced over the years and finally

Fall admissions are straining 
capacity in the College and the 
School of Theology and show a 
gratifying increase in the Acad- 
emy. Head count: College 1041, 
School of Theology 76, Academy 
200. The College has 637 men and 
412 women, including twenty- 
three special and part-time stu- 
dents, eight of them enrolled in 
the Academy and taking college- 
level work in one or more courses. 
Forty-one states and five for- 
eign countries are represented in 
the College, with one young man a 
Hong Kong Chinese. Nashville (53) 
and Birmingham (52) are the most 
Sewanee-bent cities. Albert Gooch, 
director of admissions, thinks 
there is no doubt that these large 
numbers are a direct reflection of 
strong Sewanee Club activities in 
the two areas. 

Academy is on the Rise 

The Academy draws from 
nineteen states and seven foreign 
countries. There are 103 boy 
boarders, 50 girl boarders, 26 day 
girls and 21 day boys. Next to 
Tennessee, Alabama is most 
numerously represented among the 
states, with twenty. Only one of 
the seven from foreign countries, a 
Nicaraguan, is a native of his land 
(the others have American- parents 
living abroad) but there are seven 
from Illinois, Kansas, Michigan, 
New Mexico and Wisconsin to 
allow exposure to exotic ways. 

From Boston and Central Kerala 

Of dioceses represented in the 
School of Theology, Tennessee is 
first with eight, then Upper South 
Carolina with seven, Mississippi 
with six, Dallas with five, and 
Atlanta and Southeast Florida 
with four each. Others are scatter- 
ed from Virginia to Colorado. 
Among the juniors are Harrison 
Anyango from Maseno South 
(Kenya) and P. P. Cherian from 
Central Kerala (South India). 
There are three transfer students, 
from Nashotah House, Boston Uni- 
versity and Phillips University. 
Sixty-two of the seventy-six stu- 
dents are married. The average age 
is thirty-one. 

Grant LeRoux, C 

Alumni Help Asked for Academy Admissions 

Academy recruitment is being 
stepped up with the appointment 
of Grant LeRoux, C'68, as direc- 
tor of admissions, and the respon- 
sibilities of the office are being 
given a broader interpretation. 

Alumni are being asked to be- 
come involved more actively than 
they have in the past to help 
recruit students. "Alumni ask, 
'What can we do?' and we intend 
to give them a serious answer to 
that question," says LeRoux. 

He has cards on which to list 
prospective students and is dis- 
tributing them to alumni through 
the mail and Sewanee clubs. A 
number were also given out during 
the Homecoming weekend. It is 
hoped that many cards will be 
returned with the names of as 
many as five prospects, and that 
everyone will send back at least 

"If we find an interested fam- 
ily in an alumnus' area we will ask 
him to make a phone call, answer 
questions, or write a personal 
letter. After all, no one knows the 
school as well as the alumni, ex- 
cept current students, and they 
don't yet have as good a perspec- 
tive on it." 

A new leaflet, "The Sewanee 
Academy: A Preparatory School 
within a University and a Special 
Place," is ready and alumni can 
help by getting it into key places 
—diocesan conventions, churches, 
camps, and so on. Alumni in im- 
portant areas will be asked to 
arrange parties to which alumni, 
students actually in the Academy 

and interested prospects will be 
invited— say at Christmas or during 
spring recess. 

"We hope all alumni will make 
an effort to present the Academy 
to groups of young churchmen, 
Scouts, in camps and schools. We 
also plan to ask them to help 
arrange meetings for us to come 
down and talk, show slides and 
introduce the Academy. 'Cold call- 
ing' is not as effective on the prep 
school level as it sometimes is for 
colleges. We need a little warm-up. 
A good example is a series of 
meetings now being planned 
around Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, 
by the Rev. Charles R. Johnson 
and the Rev. M, L. Agnew, C'64, 
GST'72 and former Academy 
chaplain, at which the slide show 
'Meet Richard' will be shown and 
where I will speak." 

Mr. Johnson is the father of 
Richard Johnson, A'73, who was 
selected as the central figure of 
the slide show. 

LeRoux wants to assure every- 
one who helps or makes sugges- 
tions that he will follow them up 
vigorously. He considers this of 
prime importance. 

The aim of the headmaster and 
the new admissions director is to 
continue and to step up the grad- 
ual increase in enrollment of the 
last few years until the Academy 
is operating at an optimal level, 
though Grant LeRoux considers 
the present enrollment good in the 
light of present accommodations 
and the experience of many com- 
parable schools. "Generally in the 
Vietnam period there was a con- 
siderable decline in boarding 
school enrollment. The schools are 
beginning to pull out of that, 

although most all-boy boarding 
schools are continuing to decline." 

Next year LeRoux would like 
to see sixty boarding girls. "We 
have room or can make room." A 
hundred and twenty boarding boys 
he considers an optimistic goal. 
"We usually have about forty to 
fifty day students, so what we are 
shooting for is 220-230." 

Down the road, he sees a 
hoped-for dormitory renovation to 
make more space for girls. "But 
first we need to improve the boys' 
quarters in Quintard. Ultimately 
our aim is 90 boarding girls and 
130 boarding boys." 

LeRoux sees a possible expan- 
sion in the number of day stu- 
dents. "We can handle more, well. 
We have the plant and the faculty. 
I have explored the possibilities 
for finding more students who do 
not require dormitory space." 

The young officer, dark-haired, 
with warm brown eyes and an 
immediately likeable manner, 
brings to his work experience in 
business and as an Air Force infor- 
mation specialist. He is obviously 
enthusiastic about what he has 
taken on. "The Sewanee Academy 
really has a lot going for it. The 
faculty is first-rate. They are not 
only well-trained and dedicated to 
their particular fields but they are 
remarkably versatile. They all head 
up extracurricular activities and 
athletics and have a many-sided 
involvement with students in class 
and out." 

He went on, "Our relationship 
with the College, which keeps de- 
veloping in new ways, must make 
this very nearly unique among

setting and location, really perfect 
for all sorts of outdoor activities. 
The classrooms are extremely 
attractive, and the laboratory facil- 
ities in particular are among the 
finest of any prep school in the 

"One thing that has struck me 
most is the tutoring system. There 
is at least one period each day, at 
staggered hours, when all the 
teachers are in their rooms and 
any students can see any teachers 

for any extra help they need or 
want. The teachers are always 
accessible. Anyone who has a 
problem can go to a teacher and 
say, 'I didn't understand what 
went on in algebra this morning.' 
And the students really make use 
of it, too— they are taking good 
advantage. An English teacher told 
me today that he has five or six 
students coming' in late Friday, 
when you would expect people to 
want to be off. This tutoring is 
one of the reasons why we find 

well over fifty per cent of our 
students on the Honors list." 

Grant LeRoux continued, 
"Our alumni are among our great- 
est assets. We have been very 
fortunate in the quality of person, 
the diversity of interest and the 
degree of success our alumni repre- 
sent in many spheres of influence. 
We have very influential alumni 
who have very close feelings for 
the Academy, and one of my main 
concerns is to live up to that 
interest and reciprocate it."

The 24-Hour 

Much of education has noth- 
ing to do with courses and 
classrooms. After classes 
and after dinner in a Board- 
ing School, students and 
teachers are in studios, labs, 
lounges, athletic activities — 
on and off campus. 
When students attend local 
schools, their fellow stu- 
dents are from the same 
town, and often have simi- 
lar viewpoints. Only in 
Boarding Schools do they 
learn with students from 
often more than 30 states 
and many foreign countries. 
Somehow, sometime, a girl 
or a boy has to leave home to 
find out who she or he is. 
Sometimes college is time 
enough, but not always. The 
time to invest in education is 
when the need is obvious. A 
24-hour school is simply 
more in every way. 
This attractive alternate in 
education is found Only in 
Boarding Schools. It 
might just be your best 
choice — as a student, as a

What kind of students should 
come to the Sewanee Academy? 
"We don't cater to any specific 
kind of student," the admissions 
director said. "We are able to 
handle the average student all the 
way up to the extremely brilliant, 
like Miller Puckette." (Puckette 
was one of the first-place winners 
in the 1975 international Mathe- 
matics Olympiad.) 

"We have a good cross section 
of students from the Southeast 
and a cross section of economic 
backgrounds," LeRoux said. "This 
is not a school just for the very 
rich or the strictly middle class. 
We have a fair amount of financial 
aid. We could use more." 

Why a boarding school at all? 

He paused to think about this. 

"First there is the increasing 
necessity for good college prepara- 
tion, and boarding schools are 
expert at that. Then you have a 
well-balanced environment for per- 
sonal growth— a high level academ- 
ic environment, the Christian 
environment, the good outdoor 
and athletic environment plus a 
healthy social environment. 

"It is a place where a young 
student can prepare himself for 
college and at the same time begin 
to adjust and mature. Often con- 
cerned individual attention outside 
the family is just what a growing 
boy or girl needs. One of the 
objectives here is to help young 
people see where they are going, 
begin to clarify their values in 
their own minds, set some definite 
goals and ideals. 

"Our job is a" very serious one 
because we are getting the adoles- 
cent at a time when he is begin- 
ning to develop from complete 
family dependence to independ- 
ence. We try to offer a place 
where he can make this transition 
smoothly and clear up some of the 
confusion and anxiety that go 
along with making transitions. If 
each person here, faculty and 
staff, can in his own way contrib- 
ute to that overall ideal I think we 
will have done our job." 

We are convinced that Grant 
LeRoux means to do his.

Metropolitan Area Campaigns Expanded 

Fueled by the enthusiasm genera- 
ted in last year's metropolitan area 
campaigns, the cities involved have 
been increased from fourteen to 
eighteen. There are six cities 
organizing for the first time and 
twelve who are repeating the 
effort. The goal is annual giving on 
a greatly increased scale, stimu- 
lated by volunteer workers in one- 
to-one personal encounters. Law- 
rence Gibson, director for special 
resources, has prepared a succinct 
leaflet, "Beyond the Challenge- 
Keys to Success," to aid volun- 
teers in their solicitation efforts.

B.S. Offered Again 

The College of Arts and Sciences 
will be granting the Bachelor of 
Science degree (in addition to the 
B.S. in Forestry) this spring for 
the first time in fifteen years. 

Students majoring in biology, 
chemistry, mathematics, physics 
and psychology will be eligible for 
the B.S. Basic requirements are the 
same as for the B.A., with candi- 
dates for the B.S. required to take 
an additional sixteen hours in 
science outside their major fields. 

There were two reasons for 
again giving science students the 
option of receiving a B.A. or a 
B.S., according to Associate Dean 
of the College John Webb. Some 
graduates reported difficulty in 
obtaining certain jobs, especially in 
the civil service, which required a 
B.S. "It was hard for our students 
to convince some of the bureau- 
crats that a B.A. in chemistry was 
just as good as a B.S.," he said. 

Another reason for reinstating 
the B.S. stemmed from admissions. 
"This is just a widely-held feel- 
ing," Dean Webb said. "But many 
people feel that students just out 
of high school tend to think that a 
college which doesn't have a B.S. 
degree doesn't have a good science 
program. So these students with 
an interest in careers in science 
don't consider Sewanee as serious- 
ly as they might otherwise." 

The B.S. degree was last offer- 
ed at Sewanee in 1960. For many 
years, the difference between the 
B.A. and the B.S. was that calcu- 
lus was required for the B.S. and 
not for the B.A. However, when 
calculus was made a requirement 
for the B.A. as well, the B.S. was 
no longer any different, and was 

"No student may receive both 
a B.A. and a B.S. at the same 
commencement," Dean Webb said. 
"Therefore, a double major in 
biology and English must choose 
between the B.A. and B.S." 

The Bachelor of Science in 
Forestry degree has not been 
affected by this change. 




Where Are They Now? 

An analysis of the College class of 
'75, made early in the fall by the 
placement office, shows 57 
(34.1%) attending graduate school, 
15 (8.98%) teaching, 44 (26.3%) 
in other employment, 5 (2.99%) in 
military service and 8 (4.79%) un- 
employed. Thirty-eight (22.75%) 
were in the "unknown" category 
at that time. Of the eight unem- 
ployed, five had majored in 
English, two in fine arts and one 
in history. Political science had the 
most (ten) in graduate school, out 
of eighteen majors. Half the 
biology majors were in graduate 
school, eight of sixteen. One 
suspects the direction of these 
majors toward law and medicine 
for the high percentages.

Running All the Way 
October got off to a Running start 
(sorry, we find the name irresist- 
ible) when Dr. Joseph Running, 
chairman of the music department, 
organist and choirmaster of the 
University, played a recital on the 
Casavant organ in All Saints' 
Chapel immediately following the 
opening of a show in the art 
gallery of work by his three 
brothers. The artists are the Rev. 
Orville Running, chairman of the 
art department at Luther College, 
Dr. Cyrus Running, chairman of 
the art department at Concordia 
College, and DT. Paul Running, 
chairman of graduate studies in art 
at Bowling Green State University. 

The School of Theology is 
arranging speaking engage- 
ments for its two foreign stu- 
dents, the Rev. Harrison 
Anyango from Maseno South, 
Kenya and P. P. Cherian from 
Central Kerala, South India. 
They would be glad to talk 
on religion and culture in 
their homelands, their Ameri- 
can experience, or other 
topics. Opportunities during 
their vacation periods would 
be particularly welcome.

In Residence 

Bishops-in-residence at St. Luke's 
this year included Milton Richard- 
son from Texas, George Masuda 
from North Dakota, Robert Hall 
from Virginia and Paul Haynes of 
Southwest Florida. Fellows-in- 
residence have been the Rev. Nel- 
son Pinder of Orlando, the Rev. 
William Barnwell of New Orleans, 
the Very Rev. Thomas Fitzgerald 
(a regent) from Sarasota, Florida 
and the Rev. James R. McLean, Jr. 
from Fayetteville, Arkansas. Ex- 
pected the week of October 27 are 
Mrs. Vivian Kingsley of Holland, 
Michigan, the Rev. Olin Beall of 
Biloxi, Mississippi, the Rev. Eric 
Gration of Portland, Oregon, and 
the Rev. Eric Newton of Mont- 
gomery, Alabama. 

The residence program, co- 
sponsored by the School of 
Theology and the Associated 
Alumni, offers a period of refresh- 
ment, study, contact between 
seminarians and working clergy- 
men, and whatever comes to mind 
during the unstructured period. 
Bishop Masuda, for example, who 
is involved in training native minis- 
ters among the Indians in North 

Dakota, expressed particular 
interest in the seminary's new 
Theological Extension offering, 
allowing full theological study for 
a lay ministry in home parishes. 
"We prefer not to send our men 
to seminary," Bishop Masuda said. 
"It destroys what they have in 
their own native culture and they 
are no longer accepted by their 
own people." 


Patrick Anderson, C'57, author of 
The President's Men, perhaps the 
first book to bring to public atten- 
tion an accurate account of the 
growth of the White House aide 
system, and the novel Approach to 
Kings, has another novel out on 
the Washington scene, Actions and 
Passions, published by Doubleday. 
It combines a compelling story 
line with an insider's view of much 
that perplexed the nation during 
the sixties— youthful radicalism 
and drug experimentation, the fail- 
ure of the Senate to control in- 
volvement in Vietnam, the rise of 
the women's movement, etc. A 
new novel, Affairs of State, is due 
for publication in March, by

at Sewanee. Two of the papers are 
by professors William Griffin and 
Charles Winters and a summary 
was done by the Very Rev. David 
Collins, C43, T'48, H'74. The 
conference was sponsored by the 
Community of the Cross of Nails, 
of which Mrs. Lester is a member.

Allen Tate: the best uncollected essays 




By Allen Tate. 

237 pp. Chicago: 

Swallow Press. $8.95. 


In the deepening twilight of a distin- 
guished career, Allen Tate has brought 
together a selection of his best uncol- 
lected essays, only one of which has 
appeared in a previous book of his 

Unfortunately he abandoned his 
original plan to write a book in the 
recollective mode, but from that 
projected work he has salvaged two 
brilliant reminiscences, "A Lost 
Traveller's Dream" and "Miss Toklas's 
American Cake." The first presents 
Tate's memories until August, 1914; 
the second concerns his experience 
as a Guggenheim Fellow" living in 
Paris in the late 1920's. The principals 
are Ford Madox Ford, Ernest Heming- 
way, Gertrude Stein and Tate himself. 
(Of Miss Stein's Thursday afternoons 
he says: "1 never got anything, not 
i even much education.") 

With these pieces Tate has put 
his account of the years of The 
Fugitive (1922-1925), the seminal mag- 
azine of Southern letters, and homages 
to John Crowe Ransom, Donald David- 
son, Sylvia Beach, St. -John Perse, John 
Peate Bishop, William Faulkner, and 
T. S. Eliot. These memoirs make up 
the first part of his new book; the 
second section presents critical essays 
in a personal vein on Robert Frost, 
Hart Crane, Edgar Allan Poe, Paul 
Valery. Faulkner, James, Joyce, con- 
fessional-poetry, humanism and natur- 
alism, and translation. One of the 
earliest essays was written in 1929 
for Eliot's Criterion; the latest, reflec- 
tions occasioned by Ransom's death, 
in the summer of 1974. 

The epilogue for "Memoirs and Opin- 
ions" is, as Mr. Tate has remarked 
in conversation, a meditation on his 
own death: 

Men will plunge, mile after mile 

of men . . . 

Go home and put their heads 

upon a pillow, 
Turn with whatever shift the 

darkness cleaves; 

Tuck in their eyes, and cover 

George Core is editor of The Se- 
wanee Review. 

The /lying dark with sleep like 
falling leaves. 

This epilogue was delivered at the 
celebration of his 75th birthday in 
November, 1974, a memorable occa- 
sion that was attended by poets and 
critics from all over the United States 
and from the British isles and that 
was also observed in London and 
reported at length in The Times Litera- 
ry Supplement 

"Memoirs and Opinions" constitutes 
a coda for a career that has extended 
over a half-century. The life blood 
of Allen Tate's art has always been 
poetry, but he has never written it 
in isolation from other literary genres, 
and the poetry has always been in- 
formed and complemented by prose: 
biography, letters, fiction and, most 
especially, criticism. His first volume 
of poetry, "Mr. Pope and Other 
Poems" (1928), was bracketed by biog- 
raphies of Stonewall Jackson and 
Jefferson Davis. For the leading Fugi- 
tives and Agrarians (Ransom excepted) 
there has been a common pattern, 
or line of development, from history 
and biography to autobiography. 

The author's last collection of criti- 
cism, "Essays of Four Decades" (1968), 
one of the best books of its kind 
in this century, is "concerned with 
poetry and fiction as actualizations 
of culture," as he notes in the fore- 
word to "Memoirs and Opinions." This 
new collection is less severe in its 
definition and purpose, but the ear- 
marks of Tate at his best are abun- 

The reader is confronted by the 
incisive generalization ("The simple 
truth is never commonplace unless 
it is spoken by a commonplace mind"), 
the witty aside ("Every poet resembles 
some other poet somewhere; if he 
didn't he would be an idiot"),' the 
quickening definition (Frost's longer 
poems are "either meditations or short 
stories in verse"), the shrewd histori- 
cal insight (of the Southern renais- 
sance: "Should we call it the Southern 
Naissance?"), the philosophical apercu 
("If the necessity for virtue could 
tell us how to practice it, we should 
be virtuous overnight"), the self -deflat- 
ing barb (of his presumed Jamestown 
kinsman: "I decided that we could 
have as an ancestor the unhappy 'gent- 
leman' who in that first grim winter 
of famine ate the corpse of his wife"). 
The unity of this book derives from 
the mind of its maker and the acerbity 
and wit of its deepening tone. 

Tate is less insistent in "Memoirs 
and Opinions" on the role of the 
literary arts (which he has elsewhere 
defined as "the arte by which men 
can live, but without which they can- 
not live well ..." than in his formal 
criticism, but he is no less serious. 

Cap and Gou 

Allen Tate, editor of the Sewanee Review 1944-46 and 
Brown Senior Tutor in the College 1972-73, is shown here 
with Mrs. Roger Way in Sewanee, where he makes his 

In an address on translation 
presented at the Library of 
Congress he said: "The greater 
the political war of nerves the 
more resolved are men of let- 
ters throughout the world to 
create an international cul- 
tural medium." 

Since the 18th-century the 
man of letters has been an en- 
dangered species with less and 
less space to wander, to per- 
form his craft, to define his role 
and hence fulfill himself. John 
Gross has argued in an impor- 
tant book, "The Rise and Fall 
of the Man of Letters," that the 
man of letters in England has 
vanished. "The American breed 
is a hardier and different strain, 
in part because Edmund Wil- 
.son, Malcolm Cowley, Ransom 
and Tate have epitomized the 
office and made it not oflly 
respectable but necessary in 
this country. 

For such writers the office 
has not been merely a mask 
assumed for public occasions 
but a way of joining life and 
literature, of discharging one's 
responsibility in the republic 
of letters. "The true province 
of the man of letters is," as 
Tate has said, "nothing less (as 
it is nothing more) than cul- 
ture itself." The man of letters 
both creates literature and in- 
terprets it in the context of 
culture, and in so doing he con- 
tributes to the vitality not only 
of art but of language. 

In "A Lost Traveller's 
Dream" Tate explores the na- 
ture of his past, saying that 
"the imaginative writer is the 
archeologist of memory." His 
recollections of his early years 
lead him to conclude: "Four 
years later ... I would be in 
a new world so different from 
the old that I would never quite 
understand it, but would be 
both of it and opposed to it 
the rest of my life." 

That tension has been crucial 
in Tate's behavior as a citizen 
of the world and a member of 
the republic of letters. It en- 
compasses what he has defined 
as the obsessive Southern 
theme, the past in the present; 
and at once it suggests his pro- 
found unease with modernity. 
This is no mere Victorian 
whim, no parsimonious life; for 
Tate has helped to make and 
define modern poetry and criti- 
cism. It is the testament of a 
man whose role in the literary 
community has had a consider- 
able impact on countless writ- 
ers throughout the Western 

One looks back on the shape 
of Allen Tate's career through 
the refracted medium of these 
superb essays. If the projected 
image wavers in the glass of 
time., it will not be because 
the author flinched in his com- 
mitment to art, ■

Elliott New President 

George Elliott, C'51, of Birming- 
ham was elected president of the 
Associated Alumni at the annual 
meeting held during Alumni 
Homecoming October 3-4. 

On a beautiful weekend with 
more alumni present than in any- 
one's memory, the Tigers took 
Austin College in a photofinish 
28-26. A cocktail buffet dance 
filled Sewanee Inn to capacity as 
Billy DuBose, C'77, and the 
Syncopators played dance and 

Dick Doss, C'50, chairman of 
the board of regents, spoke to the 
alumni meeting about the multi- 
faceted work of the regents, from 
dealing with community affairs to 
high-level planning which led to 
the first MDP -bullseye. Dr. Ben- 
nett gave a specific example of a 
corporation head he sought to 
interest in Sewanee who inquired 
at the outset about the extent of 
alumni giving. The percentage of 
alumni support, he said, is an 
important consideration in attract- 
ing both foundation and corpora- 
tion gifts. 

The largest class reunion was 
1928 through '31 at the EQB Club 
under the guidance of John Craw- 
ford, C'28, and Dave Crosland, 
'30, followed closely by 1950 at 
the home of the Charles Binnick- 
ers. Other reunions were 1925 at 
the Helvenstons', 1935 at the 
Chittys', 1940-45 at the Kirby- 
Smiths', 1955-60 at the Stuarts', 
1965 at the Seiters' and 1970 at 
the Sewanee Inn pub. 

Vice-presidents elected for a 
two-year term at the annual meet- 
ing were Richard Simmons, C'50, 
of Birmingham for admissions, 
Edward Watson, C'30, of Sewanee 
for bequests, the Rev. James John- 
son, T'58, of Nashville for church 
support, Albert Roberts, C'50, of 
Atlanta for classes, and Warren 
Belser, C'50, of Birmingham for 

Academy Elects Governors 

A riot of fall color on a warm 
Saturday afternoon decorated the 
Mountain as the Tigers routed St. 
Andrew's 42-0 to cap a cheery 
Academy Alumni Homecoming 
October 10-11. 

Highlight of the alumni meet- 
ing was the introduction of Grant 
LeRoux, new admissions director, 
who impressed the alumni with 
the opportunity for critically need- 
ed service in seeking qualified stu- 
dents as the admissions picture 
continues to improve with 200 
students (153 boarders, 47 day) 
now enrolled. Also heard were 
entreaties from the Vice-Chancel- 
lor and the Headmaster for added 

financial strength through giving 
designated by alumni for credit to 
the Academy. 

Newly elected members of the 
board of governors were John 
Spence, A'35, of Memphis; George 
Wood, A'40, of Lexington; and 
the Rev. Fred Gough, A'58, of 
Copperhill, Tennessee. Two new 
vice-presidencies were designated, 
one each for recruiting and classes. 
Parallel posts as committee chair- 
men carry over for William D. 
Austin, A'46, C'52, in recruiting 
and Brooke Dickson, A'65, for 

Bishop Hines at St. Luke's 

Preaching in the contemporary 
world must address itself with a 
prophetic voice, the Rt. Rev. John 
E. Hines, C'30, H'46, former Pre- 
siding Bishop, told the St. Luke's 
Convocation, which he addressed 
as DuBose lecturer October 14-15. 

Quoting Henry Kissinger, Bish- 
op Hines saw a parallel in the 
secretary's remarks to his own 
subject: "Our task is to define, 
together, the contours of a new 
world, and to shape America's 
contribution to it." 

"With the changing of just a 
word or two," Bishop Hines said, 
"it could throw light on the pur- 
pose of Christian ministry, and of 
preaching: by God's grace and 
wisdom, to define the contours of 
a new world, and to re-shape 
mankind's contribution to it ... 
'The contours of a new world' will 
depend absolutely upon the caliber 
of moral and ethical awareness 
that marks people who occupy 
positions of power and influence. 
And the kind of moral sensitivity 
to which such people have access 
depends in no small measure upon 
the clear articulation by the 
Church of the claims of morality 
and justice upon the world of

Parker Enwright, C'50, has 
been looking over the work 
of Professor Abbott Martin as 
it appeared in Sewanee Vin- 
tage and Abbo's Scrapbook, 
and has in mind to collect all 
the material available on 
Abbo for the duPont Library' 
archives and possibly to re- 
publish a selection. He asks 
that now, while memories 
will never be fresher, former 
students and friends jot down 
Abbo anecdotes, remembered 
remarks or simply expressions 
of what he meant to them. 
Also, Mr. Enwright believes 
that there are many fugitive 

bits by Abbo published else- 
where than Sewanee, as in 
fraternity magazines, etc., and 
would like to hear from any- 
one who has any. 

He recalled that working 
in the Alley with Abbo 
should have been awarded 
credit in English literature, so 
rich was the yield. A new (to 
us) quote he mentioned was, 
ABBO: "I can't teach English 
literature, but I can teach 
through English literature."

Sewanee's young football team has 
"learned to win," according to 
head coach Shirley Majors. "The 
team is young in that it took them 
a while to learn to play together. 
But during the Centre game they 
began to coordinate really well." 

The Tigers are undefeated 
against the other teams in the 
College Athletic Conference at this 
date. "I'm very optimistic for the 
rest of the season. The win over 
Southwestern really did it," Majors 

"The freshmen have been a big 
help this year," he said. "Last year 
we only had eight freshmen. This 
year we have eighteen, some of 
whom have started every game. 

"This year's team is playing 
much better than last year's. The 
only games we have lost so far this 
year are to teams who give full 
scholarships. The team is very 
aggressive and enthusiastic," Ma- 
jors concluded. 


"The record of this year's soccer 
team is by no means indicative of 
the talent on the team," Mac 
Petty, coach of the Sewanee soc- 
cer team, says. "This year's team 
is a very young team with excel- 
lent talent. We just haven't had 
the breaks or been able to use the 
breaks we have had." 

However, having this strong 
young team will be good for the 
future, Petty said. "When Kyle 
Rote, Jr. and Steve Haywood were 
here earlier this year, they told me 
that they felt there was more 
talent here now than when they 
were here." 

Soccer has been a varsity sport 
at Sewanee since 1968. Sewanee 
and five other schools comprise 
the Tennessee Intercollegiate 
Soccer Association. Other teams in 
the association are Bryan College, 
Tennessee Temple, Tennessee Wes- 
leyan, Tusculum College, and King 
College. Sewanee plays each of the 
other teams in the conference 

Women's Athletics 

The women's athletics program is 
constantly growing and venturing 
into new areas, or at least areas 
new to Sewanee women. "We now 
have six varsity sports for women, 
which I consider a rather remark- 
able fact," said Walter Bryant, 
director of athletics. 

Practice and competition are 
scheduled this fall for girls com- 
peting in volleyball, field hockey,

synchronized swimming, tennis, 
gymnastics, and basketball. 

Although the tennis team's 
main season does not begin until 
the spring, the team has had sev- 
eral meets this fall with teams 
from Memphis State University, 
Furman, Middle Tennessee State 
University, and the University of , 
Tennessee in Chattanooga. 

The gymnastics team and 
synchronized swimming team have 
both hosted clinics in their respec- 
tive sports in Sewanee this fall. 
The synchronized swim team has 
had meets with Middle Tennessee 
State University and the University 
of Tennessee in Chattanooga. The 
gymnastics team's competition 
does not start until the winter. 

"We find the field hockey and 
synchronized swimming teams in 
an unusual position," said Martha 
Swasey, director of women's ath- 
letics. "They are both new teams 
here at Sewanee, but at the same 
time they are having to introduce 
the sport to the other schools in 
the region. Last year there was 
only one other field hockey team 
in the state. This year there are 
four. It can be rather tough when 
you are starting a new team and 
cannot even find someone else to 
play with. 

"We have more girls coming 
out for each sport this year than 
we have ever had before," Mrs. 
Swasey said. "The girls now 
appear to be operating with more 
savoir {aire than they have in the 
past. The girls are not trying to 
mimic the boys' athletic organiza- 
tion. They're trying to mold a new 
system to fit the needs of the 
women here at Sewanee. And 
they're starting this system from 

"There is still some concern on 
the part of the coaches and the 
girls as to the degree of excellence 
they should strive for," she said. 
"There is a consensus that the 
academic demands are greater here 
than at the schools with whom we 
compete. Therefore the girls are 
not able to commit as much time 
to practice as is generally consider- 
ed necessary for a varsity sport. 

"Many of the girls come to 
college not knowing anything 
about varsity sports," Mrs. Swasey 
said. "However, we are drawing 
some highly skilled girls, especially 
in tennis and swimming. We do 
the best we can with what we 

"This administration has been 
very sympathetic and helpful," 
Mrs. Swasey said. "They have been 
very understanding and haven't 
forced any particular type of 
system on the girls." 

Women's Volleyball 

This is the third year that there 
has been a volleyball team for 
women at Sewanee. The team, 
coached by Laurence Alvarez, co- 
ordinator of planning and budget- 
ing and an associate professor of 
mathematics in the College, com- 
peted in varsity competition for 
the first time last year.

Seventeen girls are participa-

"I'm very pleased with the pro- 
gram and the girls' willingness to 
work very hard," Alvarez said. 

"I think that a mathematics 
teacher coaching a women's volley- 
ball team is what Sewanee is all 
about," he continued. "I've learn- 
ed a lot about the athletic pro- 
gram here, and I believe that 
engaging in, this type of activity 
outside of one's field is desirable. I 
think it might be interesting for 
some of the regular coaches to 
teach mathematics some time." 

"Mr. Bryant (Walter Bryant, 
director of athletics) has been very 
helpful with the women's pro- 
gram," Alvarez said. "But there 
are times when I'm glad that my 
job at the College doesn't depend 
upon my performance as a volley- 
ball coach." 

Canoeists on Top Again 

For the fourth straight year Sewa- 
nee dominated the Southeastern 
Intercollegiate Canoe Champion- 
ships on the Catawba River near 
Morganton, North Carolina, 
winning the team championship by 
a hundred-point margin and 
coming in first in all the events. 
The Catawba River was higher 
than in past years, making the 
rapids more difficult and the times 
faster— all the winning times were 
new records for the two-and-a-half 
mile course. 

Georgia State and North Caro- 
lina State finished second and 
third in the team championships.

The Academy opened her doors to 153 boarders 
and 47 day students at the end of August, and it 
is safe to say that we have as good-looking a 
group of boys and girls as we can recall. 
According to the recent grade reports, they are 
outperforming their predecessors by a healthy 
margin, too. Along with this trend I detect a rise 
in school spirit that is good to see. Take our 
cheerleaders, for example. They are all new 
boarders, and come from Texas, Mississippi, 
Tennessee, Alabama and Florida, never had prac- 
ticed together before, but are so enjoyable to 
watch that attendance at football games has 
swelled noticeably. Where else would a dedicated 
girl watcher be on a beautiful autumn day but 
out appreciating the cheering abilities of Phyllis 
Abel, Cyndi Howell, Anne McGee, Lisa Pruitt and 
Quincy Wells along with Lindsey Elliott as the 
Academy Tiger? 

New People 

Lt. Col. (ret.) John Jarrell has joined the 
Academy faculty as a history instructor. He also 
teaches physical education and will coach the 
Tigers' basketball team. Col. Jarrell comes to us 
from the College, where he was commander of 
the Air ROTC unit until it was discontinued this 

year. Col. Jarrell attended the University of the 
South one year, received his B.A. from Peabody 
in history and his M.S. in education from UT 
Knoxville, in 1956. 

Dale Morton, C'74, is instructing in eco- 
nomics and serving as line coach for the football 
team, assisting head coach Mark Tanksley, C'72. 
Followers of the College football team will 
remember Mr. Morton as a defensive and offens- 
ive tackle who made all-conference for three 
years. He received his B.A. in political science 
and. served as captain of the 1972 football squad. 

Gorgas Hall has two new dormitory super- 
visors who also teach at the Academy. Miss 
Teresa Love, MTSU graduate in June, majored in 
physical education and is teaching girls' P.E. Miss 
Kathryn Gray is an English instructor, a '75 
graduate with a double major (in English from 
Peabody, and in German from Vanderbilt). They 
bring to their jobs the enthusiasm and stamina of 

Harold Smith is teaching physics at the 
Academy. He received his M.S. in physics from 
Roosevelt University, Chicago, in 1973. He has 
taught part time in the physics department at the 
College for the past three years. 

On the telephone or out with his cross 
country team, Grant LeRoux brings an infectious 
spirit to his position as our new director of 
admissions. He is in the process of compiling a 
slide presentation of Sewanee Academy, and asks 
that if you have a good slide that could be used, 
please get in touch with him. 

Activities Up 

Students seem to be participating more in the 
activities that are available to them. Frank 
Thomas, head of the English department, is 
taking a busload of forty to see the matinee 
performance of Macbeth presented by the Clar- 
ence Brown Company of the University of 
Tennessee, Knoxville. Sir Anthony Quayle, 
former director of the Stratford-on-Avon Theatre 
in England, is both acting and directing the play. 
According to Mr. Thomas, who knows about such 
things, Quayle has never performed Shakespeare 
in the United States so this is a not-to-be-missed 
opportunity for those interested in the theater. 

Our Tennessee Volunteers are David Winters 
and Sam Bates, who are offering a course for 
interested students on the computer every Friday 
afternoon. The two boys had a notice put in the 
daily announcement sheet and have a small but 
dedicated group learning about computer pro- 
gramming. David has taken a course at the 
College in computer programming and Sam, a real 
computer nut, has learned by doing. Eileen 
Degen, the teacher in charge of the terminal at 
the Academy, says that the boys know far more 
than she about the Hewlett-Packard 2000F 

Murals Lift Weight Room 

Refurbishing the weight room occupied some of 
Latin instructor Ralph Waldron's spare time this 
past summer. He brings to his interest in body- 
building the same meticulousness that students 
have grown to expect (and respect) in his Latin 
classes. So the weight room must be not merely 
adequate, but properly embellished and equipped. 
He says, "There is still much to do, though it 
must wait until another school break. The draw- 
ing of Frank Zane, one of the kings of body- 
building, remains without a face, and that of

Cook's Choice (continued) 

Arnold Schwarzenegger (the most impressive 
bodybuilder in history) has not even been begun 
on the central white panel. It awaits some 
student Michelangelo, or maybe Rosie Paschall." 

Mr. Waldron hopes to add an AM/FM radio, a 
clock, a power rack (now in the making by Mr. 
England), and a lat machine. "Our room, already 
better than rooms used tor weightlifting in many 
other schools like ours, could become the best in 
the South in a few years," he envisions. 

Used now mostly by seniors in P.E. and a few 
devoted enthusiasts, it is open to all students- 
girls as well as boys— and to faculty. Though we 
shall probably not ever have a weightlifting team, 
we should have a stronger, healthier, and better 
looking group of boys and girls than we have ever 
had, the enthusiastic classicist believes. 

Parents' Weekend 

Parents from as far away as Texas and Florida as 
well as those from Tennessee and neighboring 
states came to the Mountain October 11 and 12 
to join their offspring for a weekend of fellow- 
ship. Coinciding with alumni weekend for the 
Sewanee Academy, parents enjoyed a near-perfect 
day on Saturday attending conferences, a picnic 
at Lake Cheston (the yellow jackets even stayed 
away), and a football game that gladdened the 
hearts of Academy boosters everywhere. 

After the game parents and students, alumni 
and friends were welcomed at an open house 
given by the headmaster, Henry Hutson, and his 
wife. That evening a formal dance was held in 
Cravens Hall highlighted by the traditional lead- 
out to honor seniors. 

Sunday morning the Rt. Rev. John E. Hines, 
Presiding Bishop, retired, of the Episcopal Church 
preached the sermon at All Saints' Chapel. The 
Sewanee Academy Choir, directed by Mrs. Carol 
Lillard, sang the anthem. 


An unusually rainy fall has damp- 
ened the Academy's athletic 
season, but prospects continue to 
be bright for a winning season in 
football. After a spectacular 
Homecoming win (42-0) against 
St. Andrew's, the Tigers are 4-2 
with three games remaining. 

The Academy began its season 
against Blanche High School on 
September 5. Thunderstorms 
threatened to cancel the game and 
'rain continued to fall throughout 
the evening. The Academy wound 
up on the short end of the score- 
board 14-8. 

The following week Sewanee 
played at home against Flintville 
High School. Expecting a tough 
game and needing a win, the Ti- 
gers mounted a good offensive 
show and managed a - 26-0 win 
over a good Flintville team. John 
Patton, with a total of 160 yards 
rushing, was a standout as was 
Joey Finley, who threw two 
touchdown passes. 

At home again, the Academy 
faced a weak TMI team. During 
the first half the Academy scored 
JB5 points, displaying a sound of- 
fensive and defensive attack. 
During the second half, the Acad- 
emy played their reserve unit on 
offense and defense, going on to 
win the contest 42-0. 

The fourth game was in 
Lynchburg against Moore County 
High School. Lynchburg was rated 
as fifth in the state Class A rank- 
ing and proved to be a formidable 
opponent. Both teams found it 
difficult to move the ball on the 
ground with 80 yards rushing for 
Lynchburg to 78 yards by the 
Academy. Our defense held 
Lynchburg to their shortest rush- 
ing yardage this year upon a slip- 
pery rain-soaked field. Lynchburg 
passed for 160 yards and two 
touchdowns which gave them a 
14-0 victory over the Academy. 

The next week at home 
brought the Academy up against 
Lookout Valley in their fifth game 
of the season. Recuperating from 
the Lynchburg game, the Tigers 
played in a somewhat sluggish 
manner against a tough Lookout 
Valley team. Good execution and 

Academy finishes 
football season 6-3 

persistence provided the winning 
edge for the Academy as they 
managed a 14-0 win. Quarterback 
Joey Finley again threw two 
touchdown passes. • 

The season will round out 
against Red Bud High School, 
Stevenson and Copper Basin, re- 
spectively. Each of these teams 
will be tough foes for the Acad- 
emy Tigers. 

Cross Country 

The Sewanee Academy has put 
together both a girls' and a boys' 
cross country team for the 1975 
season. The dedicated runners have 
been training twice a day, seven 
days a week since the first of 

The boys' team, which has 
posted its only win this season 
over the Manchester B Team, has 
as runners (1) Clyde Westrom, (2) 
David Hawkersmith, (3) Bud Ben- 
ning, (4) Will Kern, (5) Carl Wen- 
zel, (6) Ken Fritsch, and (7) 
Alvaro Arguello. 

Clyde Westrom, captain and 
number one runner for the boys' 
team, adds much with his leader- 
ship and experience to an other- 
wise young and inexperienced 
team. Clyde's best efforts have 
been a first against Columbia Mili- 
tary Academy with a time of 
17:40.9 for the 3.1 mile Sewanee 
Academy course, and a finish in 
the top one-third of a field of over 
three hundred high school runners 
from Tennessee, Alabama and 
Kentucky in the David Lipscomb 
Invitational Meet in Nashville. 

Beth Niblock, Kathryn Ram- 
seur, Eleanor Gilchrist, Anne Cross 
and A. J. Marsh represent the 
Sewanee Academy in girls' cross 
country and have incurred their 
only setback in a meet this season 
against the Columbia Military
