Dr. J. Jefferson Bennett, vice-chan- 
cellor of the University of the 
South, told the joint faculties 
February 28 of his intention to 

His decision came after the 
meeting of the board of regents the 
previous weekend. He called the 
chairman of the board, Dr. Richard 
Doss, C'50, of Houston, requesting 
that he convene a special session of 
the board to allow him to submit 
his resignation and take steps to 
effect an orderly transition of 
leadership. The request was accept- 
ed and the meeting was scheduled 
for March 7 in Atlanta. 

Dr. Bennett explained his de- 
cision to the faculties. "The in- 
evitable frustrations generated by 
three successive years of operating 
deficits have helped me decide that 
a new person wrestling with the 
same problems would help bring 
those problems into proper focus." 
"Nevertheless," Dr. Bennett 
continued, "during the course of 
the recently adjourned regents' 
meeting a balanced operating budg- 
et was submitted and approved 
subject to our making further 
adjustments in expenditures to 
provide some increase in faculty 
salaries beyond that submitted. It 
also anticipates our submitting the 
hospital operating budget following 
a professional analysis of staffing 
patterns there. 

"I can offer my resignation 
with the conviction that the uni- 
versity corporation is headed for 
fiscal stability next year and is 
operating with much better fiscal 
data and control this year," he said. 
"I pledge my every possible 
assistance in providing continuity 
in the administration of our aca- 
demic, financial, and community 
programs, and I express my grati- 
tude for the privilege of service to 

Sewanee by Mrs. Bennett and 
myself since September, 1971." 
Dr. Bennett urged the facul- 
ties: "Do not allow the momentum, 
the vitality, and the worth of this 
place and its mission to be either 
weakened or interrupted by this 
particular set of circumstances. Let 
the faculty continue distinguished 
teaching with confidence in their 
work and in the university's future. 
I promise the same devotion to my 
duties during the remainder of my 
tenure here- 1 pray God's wisdom 
and protection for us all." 

The deans and individual mem- 
bers of the faculty rose to express 
their personal regrets at Dr. Ben- 
nett's decision and gratitude for his 
administration. Dr. John M. Gessell, 
professor of Christian ethics in the 
School of Theology, pointed out 
that the university is greatly in 
Dr. Bennett's debt for his "sensible 
and heroic measures to guard 
against financial disaster." Dr. Ges- 
sell said, "You have created a cli- 
mate in which the faculty became 
more articulate and critical. Let me 
convey my thanks, admiration and 
assent to the call to press forward 
on the real strength of this univer- 

Achievements during the Ben- 
nett administration have included 
a rise in unrestricted gift income 
from $533,000 in 1971-72 to more 
than a million dollars in 1975-76, 
almost double. Capital debt on 
buildings constructed before 1971 
was reduced and the student union, 
the Bishop's Common, was re- 
designed and completed into what 
has been called one of the most 
useful such buildings on any college 

Exposure to severe financial 
losses from the university's opera- 
tion of the Sewanee Inn and the 

Bishop's Common pub and snack 
bar was stopped by turning the 
facilities over to private manage- 
ment. The creation of the Sewanee 
Public Utility District and conse- 
quent-federal grant made possible 
the modernization and expansion 
of the water and sewer system and 
removed their subsidy from the 
university's operating budget. 

Faculty compensation includ- 
ing retirement and fringe benefits 
had an average annual increase of 
6.5 per cent, though still behind 
the national inflation rate. The 
faculties of the college and semi- 
nary have increased from 83 to 
93 l /2 full-time equivalents. A favor- 
able student-faculty ratio has been 
maintained, and admissions in the 
two units have been at capacity 
without lessening of quality, ob- 
servers agree. A long-range plan for 
dormitory renovation has been put 
into effect. 

A long-standing debt on All 
Saints' Chapel was eliminated and 
the building consecrated. 

The number of alumni giving 
to the university has increased by 
23 per cent this year. 

Dr. Bennett has personally been 
responsible for the securing of 
many major gifts and has given his 
energies to the development needs 
of the university to a degree un- 
usual among college presidents.

use of the youthful eyes of Earlene Siebold, C'79, 
in reading blueprints while they adjust the robot's 
TV cameras. 

All's Well after Radiation Leak 

Early in November an excessive 
level of radiation was detected in 
the radioisotopes laboratory during 
a routine six-months inspection by 
Dr. David Camp, professor of chem- 
istry, and a student, Donald Weber. 
The area was immediately closed 
off and the Tennessee Department 
of Public Health notified. A team of 
experts from the Union Carbide 
plant at Oak Ridge, under the di- 
rection of the Energy Research and 
Development Administration, 

brought their large mobile unit, and 
using a robot and closed-circuit tele- 
vision, pinpointed the problem and 
removed the offending material. 
A capsule of the radioisotope 
Cesium 137 had come loose from its 
attachment inside a sealed contain- 
er, fallen into the specimen cham- 
ber, and, unrecognized, been put on 
top of the container. No one, of 
course, had ever seen the contents 
of the container. Since the Univer- 
sity was one of the first colleges to 
acquire a radioisotopes unit its 
equipment was among the earliest. 
Preliminary investigation indicated 
that a weld inside the container had 
been weakened by many years of 
exposure to the intense radiation. 
Dr. Camp and Donald Weber, 
who had both handled the capsule, 
underwent routine medical examina- 
tions and then went to Oak Ridge, 
where further tests indicated they 
had not received a serious exposure. 
John Graves of the Tennessee de- 
partment of health said that efforts 
were being made to find out if other 
containers of the type of Sewanee's 
are in use in the state and to warn 
their owners of possible hazards. 

Richard Smith, in charge of the 
Oak Ridge team, said the futuristic- 
looking robot is usually used in 
handling radioactive materials inside 
the Oak Ridge plant and this was 
only the second time it had gone on 
an outside call. He said the radiation 
in the Sewanee lab was "nickel and 
dime stuff" compared to what the 
robot handles in the plant, but that 
it was good practice for the crew. 

Henry Hutson, C'50, headmas- 
ter of the Sewanee Academy, has 
accepted a call to be headmaster of 
Christ School at Arden, North Caro- 
lina, where he served for eight years 
as teacher of Spanish and assistant 
headmaster before coming to ad- 
minister the Sewanee school in 

Dr. J. Jefferson Bennett, Vice- 
Chancellor and President of the 
University of the South Corpora- 
tion, of which the Sewanee Acad- 
emy is a unit, said, "I am grateful 
for Henry Hutson 's career here and 
our association since my coming 
in September, 1971, shortly after 
his arrival in June of that year. Dur- 
ing this time among other great 
contributions he led the transition 
from a military to a civilian pro- 
gram in private secondary educa- 
tion—a decision in which he had 
no part but to which he rose mag- 
nificently. With his leadership, too, 
we began accepting female board- 
ing students.— He and his family 
will be sorely missed at Sewanee."

Jan Collet), C'7 9 


A systematic dormitory renova- 
tion program has been under way, 
with one of the older buildings 
tackled each year. When it came to 
Tuckaway, built in 1930, it became 
apparent that so much needed to 
be done that a special gift would be 
required— the operating budget 
could not possibly handle it. Just 
the cost of bringing the building 
into compliance with current fire 
and safety codes was estimated at 
far beyond what has been budgeted 
for an entire year of dormitory 
renovation and maintenance. 

A benefactor has come forward 
with a gift sufficient to cover the 
necessary restructuring of the gra- 
cious old building, plus some amen- 
ities. Mrs. Brownlee Currey of 
Nashville, who spent summers of 
her youth at Tuckaway when it 
accommodated visitors, is making 
possible a new life of service for 
the dormitory which is generally 
regarded as one of Sewanee's most 
attractive in outward appearance. 
She prefers that the amount of her 
gift not be made public. 

Finds Giving a Joy 

When the art gallery moved 
from the Tuckaway basement into 
Guerry Hall, the space was convert- 
ed with temporary partitions into 
additional dormitory rooms. There 
have been many complaints about 
noise, which new wall construction 
wd carpeting on the presently bare 
concrete should do much to allevi- 
ate. New corridor doors will have to 
he built for fire protection, and 
*ese, too, should help the noise 
Problem. All the room doors will 
06 replaced with fire-resistant ones. 

Extensive work is needed on 
'he roof and gutters and for other 
waterproofing. An entirely new 
electric system will be put in, and 
m ajor changes made in the plumb- 
m g, both required to meet regula- 
tions. (The plumbing is needed to 
*ake more wa ter available for 
tlte control. At the same time, 

bathrooms will be spruced up and 
new fixtures installed.) 

Mrs. Currey, the benefactor 
who has made the Tuckaway 
renovation possible, is the daugh- 
ter of the late E. L. Hampton, 
president of the Consolidated 
Coal Company of Tracy City, 
Tennessee, and the widow of 
Brownlee O. Currey, a prominent 
Nashville business man and finan- 
cier. He was instrumental in the 
founding of St. George's Church 
and at one time served as its 
senior warden. He died in 1952. 
Mrs. Currey, a charter member 
of the Chancellor's Society, is a 
communicant of St. George's, 
a member of its Altar Guild, and 
has been active in charity work 
in Nashville for many years. 

She has been described as a 
"joyful giver." When Dr. Bennett, 
the Vice-Chancellor, called her 
to say how happy he was when 
the gift came in she said, "I'll bet 
I'm happier than you are. It is a 
joy to be able to do something 
like this." 

Tuckaway Has Been Inn, 

Tuckaway Inn received its 
name in 1913 when Miss Johnnie 
Tucker remodeled the. old Cotten 
house and named it after her 
mother. The building bumed to 
the ground in 1926 and the present 
structure was built in 1930. Miss 
Johnnie, a warmly held memory 
for older alumni and a legend for 
younger ones, was matron of 
Tuckaway until 1945. The inn, 
which before completion of Gailor 
had its own dining hall, accommo- 
dated guests as well as students in 
whole or in part until the latter- 
day Sewanee Inn was opened in 

Other Gifts Up and Down 

The Million Dollar Program 
for annual unrestricted giving appli- 
cable to the current operating 
budget on January 1, mid-point of 

the fiscal year, stood at $493,214 
from 2,097 donors. With the 
budgeted amount for the year at 
$1,134,000, "We are having to play 
catch-up ball," William U. Whipple, 
vice-president for development, 

The amount is above that in 
1974-75 ($406,517) and below 
1975-76 ($550,082). 

Included in these totals are 
unrestricted bequests, which for 
the first six months of this year 
came to just $10,400. This figure 
was over $24,000 in each of the 
two previous years. 

Restricted gifts in the first 
six months of 1976-77 amounted 
to $482,420. Added to $31,641 in 
restricted bequests, the total sum 
forrestricted purposes was $514,061. 
The total, when bequests are ex- 
cluded, was higher than it had been 
in five years. 

Grand total of restricted plus 
unrestricted gifts and bequests for 
the first six months of 1976-77 
was $1,007,275. 

Eight members of the Chan- 
cellor's Society had renewed their 
gifts of $10,000 or more applicable 
to the operating budget, and three 
new members were added, with a 
total of $175,107 from this source. 

Alumni Giving Is Up 

Reflecting the successful thrust 
of the Task Force organization in 
its initial year, College alumni 
donors to the Million Dollar Pro- 
gram increased their number 23% 
over the last two years, rising from 
962 to 1,185. The dollar amount 
rose from $130,918 in the compar- 
able period in 1974-75 to $211,534. 
For all three units the number of 
alumni donors to the MDP was up 
from 1,090 two years ago to 1,326, 
with the dollar amount going from 
$141,000 to $224,000. 

Even at this early stage it seems 
clear that the dedication of alumni 
leaders in each class organizing for 
person-to-person solicitation in the 
Task Force format is having great 

Oinner with the Vice-Chancellor 

Metropolitan Area Campaigns 
are continuing, doing in geographic- 
al boundaries what alumni are 
doing by classes. 

An innovation this year in 
certain cities of high Sewanee con- 
centration is built around a dinner 
for prospective donors to visit 
with the Vice-Chancellor. Frankly 
aiming at increasing the member- 
ship in the Vice-Chancellor's and 
Trustees' Society, selected donors 
are invited for an evening with the 
Vice-Chancellor. In Nashville, as a 
recent example, about seventy 
people were invited by Mr. and 
Mrs. James Perkins, C'53, and Dr. 
and Mrs. Morse Kochtitzky, C'42, 
H'70, for dinner at the Belle Meade 
Country Club. Some fifty people 
attended, including some candi- 
dates for the Chancellor's Society. 
The Vice-Chancellor makes as 
many calls in person following the 
dinner as his schedule allows and. 
all persons invited are personally 
solicited either by Dr. Bennett or 
by volunteers. On the day follow- 
ing the dinner candidates for mem- 
bership in the Century Club are 
invited to lunch, which, in Nash- 
ville, had Thomas Black, C'58, as 
host at the University Club. Approx- 
imately 150 people invited were 
solicited by letter from Mr. Black. 
In most instances the Vice-Chancel- 
lor takes advantage of the oppor- 
tunity to meet with area priests 
at breakfast for a free two-way 
exchange of information and ideas. 
This program has been followed 
in Memphis, Dallas, Nashville, 
Shreveport and Houston; and has 
been planned for Atlanta and 
Louisville. There may be other 
cities engaged. 

This kind of drive for member- 
ship in the gift societies stems from 
the belief that people give from an 
informed state, and that this can 
happen best in small selected 



The Tennessee Department of Edu- 
cation last May approved the Uni- 
versity of the South 's new program 
for preparation of secondary school 
teachers, just in time for certifica- 
tion of the first four students to 
graduate from the program. 

The teacher education program 
at Sewanee is designed to permit 
the liberal arts student to obtain 
professional training. It is a demand- 
ing course, and Dean of Women 
Mary Susan Cushman, a member of 
the advisory committee, says, 
"We've tried to make it that way." 
Said Dean Cushman, "We've urged 
people who are interested in certifi- 
cation to get in touch with us as 
early as possible." 

Fire Alarms 

The University has contracted 
with Protective Systems, Inc. of 
Chattanooga for installation of 
smoke and fire detection systems in 
fourteen dormitories. The Vice- 
Chancellor in 1972 appointed a 
University Safety Council which 
advised the regents on the need for 
sophisticated fire detection equip- 
ment in dormitories. Only Hodgson 
and Emery Halls, formerly the 
Emerald-Hodgson Hospital build- 
ings, are not yet protected, as they 
became dormitories only this year. 

The system consists of 798 heat 
detectors, one in each dorm room; 
198 smoke detectors located in 
halls, basements and attics; and 116 
manual units located near dorm 
exits. The heat detectors sound the 
alarm if the temperature suddenly 
rises ten degrees or if it reaches 
135 degrees. An alarm, either auto- 
matic or manual, sounds horns in 
the building and simultaneously 
rings a bell in the fire department 
headquarters, pinpointing the 
source of the alarm. A standby 
battery arrangement operates the 
system if electric power fails. 

The Sewanee Volunteer Fire 
Department is holding unannounc- 
ed fire drills in dorms to familiar- 
ize residents with the system and 
improve evacuation time. 

Cost of installing the system 
was $62,246. The University is 
leasing the equipment at $1,483 
per month including maintenance, 
with an option to purchase later at 
a cost of $105,310. University 
administrators expect part of the 
monthly lease cost to be offset by 
lower fire insurance rates. A gift of 
$5,000 from an anonymous foun- 
dation has been received toward the 
system and the University is seeking 
additional foundation support. 

The company is still installing 
the alarms, with completion ex- 
pected by the end of March. Pres- 
ently completed are some of the 
oldest dorms— Elliott, Tuckaway, 
Selden, and Hoffman— with John- 
son Hall in progress. 

Dr. Charles Peyser of the psy- 
chology department, another mem- 
ber of the committee, says, "For 
most Sewanee students the program 
is not the best means to enter the 
teaching profession— we recom- 
mend a master's-level program after 
completing the Sewanee degree. 
For the few who take it the pro- 
gram is time-consuming. Only two 
courses toward the degree may be 
taken during the semester that 
supervised teaching is done, and the 
practice teaching itself does not 
count toward the degree, necessi- 
tating a summer session for most 

Sewanee 's program required the 
addition of only three new courses 
plus practice teaching. The courses 
added for the program are "History 
of American Education," taught by 
Dr. Anita Goodstein; "Biology and 
Man," taught by Dr. Henrietta 
Croom; and "Methods and Mater- 
ials of Teaching," taught by faculty 
selected from the appropriate de- 
partment. Other requirements in 
addition to the regular bachelor's 
degree requirements are an extra 
English course, two semesters of 
science laboratory courses, and an 
extra semester of physical education. 
From the beginning the pro- 
gram has been developed and ad- 
ministered by a committee that 
includes students. Current student 
members are Lendell Massengale, a 
senior, and Jonathan Engram, a 
junior. Faculty members in addi- 
tion to Peyser and Cushman are 
Drs. George Ramseur, biology; 
Marvin Goodstein, economics; and 
John Webb, associate dean of the 

The three seniors who are 
expecting to graduate under the 
program this year will be practice 
teaching at Sewanee Academy and 
St. Andrew's. All students have 
both public and private school ex- 
perience, although most of the. 
work is done at one school. 

Ginny Deck, a fine arts major, 
is teaching art under the supervision 
of Academy art teacher Rosie 
Paschall. Also at the Academy, 
Becky Bragg, a history major, is 
doing her practice teaching under 
history teacher James Miller. Len- 
dell Massengale, who is majoring in 
biology, is teaching in the St. An- 
drew's science department. One of 
last year's teaching graduates, polit- 
ical science major Cathy Ellis, is 
also at St. Andrew's as a dormitory 
supervisor. An accomplished gym- 
nast, she is involved in the St. An- 
drew's physical education program, 
as well as working with the admis- 
sions program and the art gallery. 
Two others who graduated last 
year, psychology majors Tyndall 
Harris and Pat Kington (now Mrs. 
Alan Johnson), have decided to go 
to graduate school. Nancy Jones 
completed her work in fine arts last 
summer and will receive her B.A. 
at commencement this year. 

Andrew Young 

Andrew Young duPont Lecturer 

Hon. Andrew Youn£ was engaged 
by the duPont lecture committee 
to speak at Sewanee January 27. The 
arrangement was made long before 
his appointment as United States 
ambassadpr to the United Nations, 
but as it happened the speech was 
made just twenty-four hours after 
his confirmation in that post by the 
Senate, and this was his first public 
appearance after the confirmation. 
Reporters for the wire services, 
press and radio converged on Guer- 
ry Hall. Lecture chairmen Dr. James 
Clayton and Dr. Don Armentrout 
allowed a brief press conference be- 
fore the lecture, and the Sewanee 
dateline blanketed the country. Re- 

porters pressed for a clarification of 
a statement Young had made about 
the United States entering soon 
into relations with Vietnam, which 
the State Department had differed 
with. Mr. Young said engagingly, 
"When the State Department says 
one thing and I say another, the 
State Department is right. I'm just 
an unemployed Congressman." 

His speech was a personal 
affirmation rather than a grappling 
with issues. It was well received by 
a capacity audience of students and 
visitors, and the purpose of the 
duPont lecture endowment— to allow 
students to hear outstanding people 
—seemed especially well served. 

New Dorms from Old 

The University completed 
several major renovation projects 
on its buildings last summer. 

Over $60,000 is being spent 
to install fire detection and alarm 
systems in all the dormitories. (See 
story at left.) 

Extensive renovation of three 
dormitories took place, with 
$90,000 budgeted for the work. 
The conversion of the former 
Emerald-Hodgson Hospital build- 
ing to Hodgson Hall, a dormitory, 
was done in time to house students 
for the fall semester. Improvements 
include clothes closets in the rooms, 
new tile and showers or tubs in the 

The old hospital business office 
became Emery Hall, another dormi- 
tory housing ten students. Partitions 
have been added rearranging the 
floor plan, and the lower floor or 
half basement has been turned into 
a kitchen and lounge area. 

The third dormitory in the pro- 
gram, Cannon Hall, got a complete 
interior facelift including carpeting, 
wallcovering, paint job, rewiring, 
renewed bathrooms, and a comfort- 
able third-floor lounge. 

An apartment for married stu- 
dents was created in the basement 

of Thompson Hall in the space 
formerly occupied by the Univer- 
sity health office. 

At the School of Theology 
extensive work was done on 
Bairnwick, the former home of 
the late Rev. and Mrs. George B. 
Myers who willed it to the school. 
The first floor was rearranged to 
contain offices and the second and 
third floors are mostly guest rooms, 
newly wallpapered. The budget for 
the Bairnwick work was $45,000. 
It is now the School of Theology's 
Continuing Education Center. 

Another building project of 
the School of Theology was use of 
a $116,000 bequest to build a new 
apartment building for married stu- 
dents. The building contains sis 
two-story apartments. 

At Sewanee Academy the 
second floor of Quintard Hall, the 
boys' dorm, got a badly needed 
renovation. New doors and frames, 
new wallcovering, paint, mattresses, 
furniture and closets to the tune of 
$40,000 are some of the improve- 
ments that greeted seniors as they 
moved in last fall. Other floors will 
be renovated in the following three 
years according to a master plan.

Favorable reviews have been 
spotted of two recent books by 
members of the College chemistry 
department: An Introduction to 
Biochemical Reaction Mechanisms 
by Dr. James N. Lowe, with L. 
Ingram of the University of Califor- 
nia at Davis, and Chemical Equilib- 
rium by Dr. William B. Guenthef. 
Dr. Lowe's book was published by 
Prentice-Hall in 1974 and Dr. Guen- 
ther's by Plenum Press in 1975. Dr. 
Lowe also had an article, "A Pro- 
posed Symmetry Forbidden Oxi- 
dation Mechanism for the Bacterial 
Luciferase Catalyzed Reaction," in 
Biochemical and Biophysical Re- 
search Communications, Vol. 73, 
No. 2, 1976. 

Dr. John L. Bordley, Jr., also 
of the chemistry department, pre- 
sented a paper at the American 
Chemical Society meeting in San 
Francisco last August on his use 
of the computer in teaching chem- 
istry. He described his programs in 
"Exper Sim, " an example of which 
is a game of wits the student plays 
with the computer to test his 
knowledge of observations in quali- 
tative analysis and his deductions 
from them. Dr. Bordley and his 
family are at Oak Ridge on his 
sabbatical year. He is doing research 
on specialized computers for inte- 
gration with laboratory instruments 
and is teaching at the Oak Ridge 
Science Semester, which is attended 
by Sewanee students and others 
from the independent colleges that 
make up the Southern College Uni- 
versity Union. His replacement at 
Sewanee is Dr. Edward P. Kirven, 

Before he left Dr. Bordley pre- 
pared some videotapes for the rest 
of the staff to use for instruction 
in general chemistry on the com- 
puter, and briefed the staff on 
computer practices. All Sewanee 
students now can get some com- 
puter experience as part of their 
course in mathematical logic. It 
is used in advanced science courses. 
In quantitative chemistry the stu- 
dent can use the plotting programs 
for the species diagrams in Dr. 
Guenther's new book to test 
agreement with their laboratory 
equilibrium constant experiments. 
In physical chemistry they compute 
some wave functions and orbital 
curves. Dr. David Camp, professor 
of chemistry, says, "Let me assure 
old timers that this is not a means 
to avoid hard work, if students 
roust do some programming. The 
computer will only do what the 
student tells it to do, but do it very 
fast. Programming forces the stu- 
dent to put down the problem in 
Perfect logical detail, every step. 
It is excellent experience, and a 
fine teaching tool."

Smart Added to duPont Staff 

Joseph J. Smart has joined 
the staff of the duPont Library 
of the University of the South as 
director of public services. His 

last summer. "This work is for 
chosen students who give evidence 
of ability to profit from intense 
work under their own steam," Dr. 
Camp says. "This practice of long 
standing in the chemistry depart- 
ment has enabled motivated stu- 
dents to accelerate their science 
programs and have a deeper course 
experience without distractions 
from other courses. It frees them to 
participate in the Oak Ridge Semes- 
ter or research here with less dis- 
ruption of their schedules." 

work is largely that of chief refer- 
ence librarian, but the library staff 
has been organized into two 
divisions— public services and tech- 
nical services— and Mr. Smart heads 
up the former. 

He moved to Sewanee from 
Newport News, Virginia, where he 
spent a year as librarian of the 
Mariners' Museum, this country's 
largest and most famous research 
library in maritime history. 

Mr. Smart had not visited 
Sewanee before coming for his 
interview last July, but said he 
"loved it." However, after seeing a 
Sewanee blizzard in January, he 
remarked, "I thought this was the 
kind of weather I was leaving 

Born in Philadelphia, he served 
in the Navy from 1942 to 1946, 
then attended the University of 
Vermont. He graduated Phi Beta 
Kappa with majors in English and 
Spanish, and did graduate work at 
the University of Arizona. 

He taught for nineteen years at 
Tabor Academy, Marion, Massachu- 
setts, and was for four years direc- 
tor of the library at Cape Cod 
Community College in West Barn- 
stable, Massachusetts. 

He attended summer schools in 
Guatemala, Spain, and Peru, and 
studied at the Munson Institute of 
Maritime History at Mystic Seaport, 
Connecticut. He received a master's 
degree in library science from 
Simmons College.

Another Sewanee-Vanderbilt 
Cooperative Venture in Theology 

A three-year joint program in field 
education for the School of Theol- 
ogy and the Vanderbilt Divinity 
School has been given impetus by 
a grant of $55,000 from the Booth 
Ferris Foundation. 

"We feel that this will greatly 
aid us in expanding what is already 
a rapidly growing field education 
program here at Sewanee under the 
direction of the Rev. Harry Pritch- 
ett," Dean Urban T. Holmes of the 
Sewanee seminary commented. 

The grant will also provide for 
a director of the joint project who 
will serve as assistant to the field 
education director of each school. 

Sallie TeSelle, dean of the Van- 
derbilt Divinity School, said the 
grant "will permit the two schools 
to locate and share new field place- 
ments in churches, hospitals, pris- 
ons, drug rehabilitation centers, 
homes for the mentally retarded, and 
government agencies— all of which 
serve as living laboratories in which 

Conferences on 
Spiritual Direction 

Four conferences on contempo- 
rary spiritual direction will be held 
at the University of the South 
during March, April and May at the 
School of Theology's continuing 
education center, Bairnwick. All 
sessions will begin on Monday at 
5:00 p.m. and run through Wednes- 
day at 1:30 p.m. The Rev. Bernard 
Persson is leader of the seminar- 
retreats, which are designed for 
cl ergy, bishops, directors of relig- 
ious education and others interest- 
ed in spirituality and counseling. 

Dates of the seminars are March 
14-16, March 28-30; April 4-6; and 
May 2-4. They are identical semi- 
nars to give a choice of dates for 
those who want to attend. 

Cost for the session is $25 for 
tuition and $25 for room and 
board. Applications and informa- 
tion may be obtained from the 
School of Theology, Sewanee, Ten- 
nessee 37375. 

The Rev. Mr. Persson is a for- 
mer Benedictine monk and priest 
who has also served as a college 
wstructor, university chaplain, 
^Wy chaplain, prison chaplain, and 
Psychotherapist with a community 
mental health center. For the past 
SU! months he has been a consultant 
to the chaplaincy team at the Uni- 
Ve rsity of the South as they devel- 
oped their team ministry to the 
diversity and the community. He 
^ also in private practice in psycho- 

the minister-in-training tests both 
personal faith and the curriculum 
of the theological school." 

The Rev. Harry Pritchett, direct- 
or of field education at St. Luke's, 
likens the program to an internship 
that runs concomitantly with aca- 
demic studies. Field education has 
assumed great importance in theo- 
logical education in recent years, 
he says. It is a requirement of the 
Association of Theological Schools 
for the parish ministry, and Mr. 
Pritchett now gives full time to 
coordinating the program at St. 

Each student is carefully placed 
with a site supervisor, usually, but 
not necessarily, a clergyman. One 
supervisor is Mrs. Marilyn Powell, 
head of Sewanee 's Community Ac- 
tion Council. The seminarian works 
in his field site weekly and is ex- 
pected not only to learn to func- 
tion in ministry, but to reflect on 
and incorporate his experience into 
a personal theology. The super- 
visors support this process. 

During the first seminary year, 
which is largely given over to Bib- 
lical studies, the student partici- 
pates in core groups and during the 
second semester explores learning 
goals and possible field sites in con- 
sultation with the field director. 
During the middler or "historical" 
year he spends a minimum of eight 
hours a week in the field; during 
the senior "preprofessional" year 
the number is increased to ten. 
Each week in addition he meets 
with a core group convened by a 
member of the theology faculty or 
adjunct faculty, where his experi- 
ence in ministry can be integrated 
with his growing academic insights. 
Adjunct faculty, all of whom 
have had training in group work 
and theological reflection, include 
Sister June David of the St. Mary's 
Community, the Rev. Craig Ander- 
son, T'75, assistant chaplain, the Rev. 
Harry Bainbridge, C'61,T'67, Sewa- 
nee Academy chaplain, the Rev. 
John Janeway, C'64, T"69, rector of 
St. Thaddaeus' Church in Chatta- 
nooga, Mrs. Alison Pritchett and Mrs. 
Sue Armentrout. Of the regular fac- 
ulty the most involved, in addition 
to Mr. Pritchett, are Dr. Henry Lee 
Myers, Dr. John Gessell, Dr. Peter 
Igarashi and Miss Edna Evans. 
Field work at present centers 
largely in parishes, but also includes 
an active ministry to Emerald-Hodg- 
son Hospital and, as mentioned 
earlier, the Community Action 
Council. Only one church situation 
now is non-Episcopalian. Students 
may preach, visit members of the 
congregation or patients in local 
hospitals, etc. Many parishes appoint 

lay committees to work with their 
visitors, thus giving still another 
viewpoint for the student's self- 
scrutiny, that of "the man and 
woman in the pew." Congregations 
normally grow quite fond of their 
students, Mr. Pritchett says, and 
regard them as assistant ministers. 
In the past, he reports, there 
has been considerable difficulty in 
finding enough suitable sites and 
able supervisors, who must have

work al St. Luke's Church, Scottsboro

pancake supper. 

special directing and consulting 
skills in addition to professions 
grasp. The new enabling gran! 
should broaden the range of possi- 
bilities and add ecumenical breadth 
to the experience. 

Sewanee 's School of Theology 
and the Vanderbilt Divinity School 
already work together with the Joint 
Doctor of Ministry program in the 
summer, and are constantly explor- 
ing other avenues of mutual benefit. 

Deferred Giving Still Attractive 

The Tax Reform Act of 1976 
effected a number of changes in 
the laws which relate to the tax- 
ation of gifts and estates. The far- 
reaching nature of those changes 
has given a new significance to 
estate planning as a means of re- 
ducing the tax burden. 

Unchanged, however, are the 
advantages in personal satisfaction 
as well as tax saving which are 
offered by a deferred gift to the 
University. The Pooled Income 
Fund, the Unitrust and the Annuity 
Trust have provided, and still do, 
the means for receiving a present 
deduction for a charitable gift 
while retaining the income from 
that gift for life. Charitable re- 
mainder trusts may also be 
created by will, retaining the 
income for the lifetime of a 
spouse or other designated bene- 
ficiary, with similar tax saving. 

Edward Watson, C'30, is vice- 
president for deferred gifts of the 
Associated Alumni. He is concerned 
that not more of the alumni, and 
other friends of the University, 
have utilized the opportunities 
offered by the establishment of a 
deferred gift. "The success of the 
annual campaign for current gifts 
is so vital to the welfare of the 
University that it has required al- 
most undivided attention of the 
development office and our volun- 
teer workers," Mr. Watson said. 
"This should not be construed to 
diminish the importance of defer- 
red gifts. For the long haul the 
thoughtfulness of those who have 
made these gifts in the past, and 
who make them now and in the 
future, is a major strength of this 
University. The development 
office, and I, are always available 
for consultation about the means 
for making a gift of this kind." 


What 1,238 Alumni Think 


JF/iaf we frankly did not bargain 
for was the outpouring of 
reservations, qualifications, split 
answers and comments. 

Often administrators, in constant touch with a 
few key alumni, come into deliberations with 
"The alumni think. . . ." 

While the heavy weight given the opinions 
of those relatively few who work for and 
generously support the institution is by no 
means to be discounted, the statement itself 
has a built-in inaccuracy, as the present writer 
has 1,238 reasons to know. That is the number 
of alumni who returned a recent opinion survey 

In an effort to ascertain across-the-board 
opinion on a number of questions on which 
there has been much discussion, the survey was 
sent in September to everyone who had attend- 
ed the College. Another, geared to their ex- 
pressed interests, followed to former students 
at the School of Theology. A decision about 
querying the Academy group has not yet been 

More than half the College alumni wrote 
in comments with a vehemence and diversity 
that did not show up in the overwhelming 
percentages agreeing with the various propo- 
sitions offered. Even the sending of the ques- 
tionnaire raised some dust. Many said they 
thought it a fine idea, but a few objected, as 
one man did in response to the invitation 
to list what about Sewanee now he most dis- 
approved: "I am opposed, in principle, to the 
deviousness of a questionnaire which indoc- 
trinates rather than questions; I know it must 
be difficult to get money to keep Sewanee 
functioning at its present level of quality, and 
I have been constantly amazed at the clever, 
yet honest, attempts to ask for funds during a 
time of rampant inflation. I think this reaches 
a new low in financial recruiting, however .... 
If you really want to have my opinion on 
matters touching Sewanee, I'll be glad to give 
it. I loved the place, and would love to see it 
continue prospering. But I object strenuously 
to a questionnaire which spews out information 
in an all-too-obvious attempt to induce guilt in 
the alumni (I refer specifically to questions no. 
14 and 15, which are rhetorical indoctrination, 
rather than requests for comment)."* 

Another said, "You need help in designing 
questionnaires." We do, we do. 

The first lot of surveys returned, from the 
College, was run through the computer to the 
extent that it was amenable to tabulation and a 
report on the results was included in the De- 
cember issue of the Sewanee News. Several 
questions required hand-counting, and that has 
now been done. What we frankly did not bargain 
for was the outpouring of reservations, qualifi- 
cations, split answers and comments (including 
several full-length letters, some of which we 
hope to share). Three professional staff mem- 
bers, including the present writer, have read all 
of these and distributed copies of many to the 
dean and other members of the administration 

and faculty where pertinent. Now we want to 
try to pass along a glimmering of what emerges 
from this massive examination. 

The computer showed that 97 per cent of 
all those who returned the form had a "favor- 
able" or "very favorable" attitude toward Sewa- 
nee. Eighty-three per cent said they would be 
happy if a child wished to attend the University, 
Eighty-four per cent had made at least one gift 
to Sewanee. Sixty-nine per cent had visited (or 
attended) within the last five years. Seventy, 
three per cent indicated they were Episcopalian 
an interesting few having become so because of 
Sewanee and one or two having dropped 
from the same influence. 

Academic excellence, small size, 
liberal arts emphasis lead 
for appoval 

Question no. 9 invited completion of 
statement, "The aspect of Sewanee of which I 

now most approve is ." The most 

numerous group of respondents (288) noted 
"Academic excellence," with some— but remark- 
ably little— variation in the wording. Some modi- 
fied this to "reputation for," "commitment 
to," etc. 

Second in order of selection for approval 
was the small size, when grouped with the 117 
who listed this were the 139 others who men- 
tioned "student-teacher closeness," "individual 
attention," "close friendships," etc. 

"Liberal arts emphasis" drew the nod from 
199 alumni, again without much variation in the 
wording. One added "with good science train- 
ing," but it seems probable that most of the 
others considered science a component of the 
liberal arts. 

Then came "atmosphere, environment,' 
ninety responses grouped in a catch-all of 
intangibles— "academic atmosphere," "beauty," 
"physical environment," and so on. 

Seventy-three alumni liked best Sewanee's 
"holding to traditions," with a few adding 
something like "with ability to adjust to the 
present." Many went on to single out for dis- 
approval anything that eroded the traditions. 
Enough disapproved what they considered a 
tendency to cling to the past to form a con- 
sensus that this is, indeed, a Sewanee charac- 

Next, with sixty-one finding it worthiest 
of approbation, was "association with" i 
"influence of" the Church. A number noted the 
opposite on the "most disapprove" line: what 
they considered a lessening of the Church's 
influence, specifically the cessation of manda- 
tory chapel attendance. 

What fifty-seven alumni liked most about 
Sewanee now is "coeducation." On the other 
hand, forty-one listed the same thing as what 
they most disapprove. 

•These questions dealt with financial aid to students and C Wete ahnost as many items listed for

There were almost as many items listed for

filling out the line. Coeducation, noted above,

was the only factor that drew fire from much 
more than a dozen or so respondents. Thirteen 
especially deplored "permissive attitude," in- 
cluding a number of specific references to 
drunkenness, room-visiting in dormitories, 
and drugs (3). 

"The administration" or singled-out 
divisions thereof (admissions, development, 
public relations, dean, budget coordinator, 
placement, Chancellor and Vice-Chancellor) 
were listed on eleven forms. Several mentioned 
the termination of the Rev. William Ralston's 
appointment a few years ago. 

Ten people most disapproved Sewanee's 
"isolation," although several recent graduates 
liked that the most. 

Some of the aspects most disapproved: 

"That all things change; probably for the 
better but it's sad to see some of it." 

"The unfortunate lack of depth in the 
various disciplines due to small faculty size 
(I know of no solution)." 

"Coeducation, and to judge from the 
Sewanee News and reports of friends, a 
certain trendy cutesy-poo in the air." 

"Admission of women on a percentile basis 
instead of a merit basis." 

"Too few women on the faculty and in the

"Disapprove the admission of more and

"The school's continuation of a narrow

with no training in making good decisions." 

"The administrative attitude of 'in loco 
parentis,' giving students little say in determin- 
ing their own rules and policies." 

Most disapproves: "The same as 
with other fine, smaller colleges: 
cost levels that require us to 
consider state university 
opportunities. " 

Even the sending of the 
questionnaire raised some dust 

"The football team. Its $80,000 plus budget 
's not worth it. Support lacrosse or something." 

"Not enough emphasis on varsity sports; 
Emitting too many 'liberals.' " 

"The way the athletic department is pushed 
^'de. I am not in favor of a big-time college 
a Wetic program but it should be put on an 
e <iual basis with the schools it competes with." 

"Football program cannot be afforded. Too

bounding for its essential function: students, 

"The inhibitive, repressive, picky rules and 

regulations placed on the students." 

"Soft on students— you really baby them." 
—And one alumnus most disapproves of 

the fact: "That I'm no longer there." 

Of those run through the computer, eighty- 
eight per cent (963) approved the require- 
ment of mathematics and foreign language for 
admission and graduation. Thirty-four approved 
the mathematics requirement but not the 
language. Twenty-eight approved the language 
requirement but not the mathematics. Seven 
approved one or both for admission but not 
graduation; eight approved them for graduation 
but not admission. 

"Never helped me— but I guess it's good for 
the soul," says a physician of the two require- 

Other comments: 

"Although I detested both requirements 
while an undergraduate, I felt that the discipline 

required by the professors in an effort to com- 
plete the math and language was very reward- 

"When Sewanee lets go, the new 'dark age' 
of academic expediency will have set in, and we 
should all set our calendars accordingly." 

"As a faculty member at a university where 
such requirements no longer exist, I strongly 
favor their retention." 

"I question the value of math as a gradua- 
tion requirement for one who has little aptitude 
in the field." (An English professor) 

"Both are needed in our society. However, 
the entrance requirements for language could be 

"Each is essential in an increasingly com- 
puterized, international world." 

"Foreign language yes, math no for gradua- 
tion. Except for a major or minor, math require- 
ment unnecessary in age of hand computers." 

"Make the requirement meaningful. No one 
learns a foreign language at Sewanee. They 
simply get credit for the courses." 

"These are both fields in which inborn talent 
and aptitude are significant; there should be 
courses offered at various proficiency levels (i.e. 
'survey' vs. 'specialist')." 

"If you don't like the heat get out of the 

Ninety per cent expressed approval of the state- 
ment: "Sewanee plans to hold the enrollment of 
the College to 1,000, with an admission policy 
which favors those most prepared, as far as can 
be determined, to benefit from the Sewanee ex- 
perience. Within this policy, children of involved 
alumni are given preference; but realistically, 
some legacies will not be accepted." 

Though there was ninety-per-cent approval 
of the policy as stated there were vigorous dis- 
agreements on both ends of the spectrum— from 
those who think alumni kinship should carry no 
weight to one or two who expressed deep aliena- 
tion because their relatives had not been ad- 
mitted. Some of those turned away had done 
well at comparable colleges. 

Ninety-one per cent signified agreement with 
the formulation: "Sewanee still tries to admit 
the best qualified applicants regardless of finan- 
cial ability. Today, about 45% of the students 
receive some form of financial aid (grants, loans, 
jobs). Last year $316,502 of the total financial 
aid budget was funded from endowment income 
restricted for this purpose, $712,871 from other 
restricted sources, and $114,400 from unre- 
stricted funds." 

"A retreat into wealthy 
isolationism could destroy 
the University." 

In spite of the overwhelming approval there 
were many reservations along the lines of "As 
long as you can afford it," "As long as it doesn't 
lead to financial over-extension," etc. Ten

What Alumni Think 


"With the number of students who receive aid and 
the careful admissions policy — why is our 
alumni giving percentage so low?" 

"Alumni do represent a legitimate 
source of support — and ought to 
recognize that they also depended 
on the benefactors of the 
University for the education 
which they received there. " 

thought the use of the operating budget for 
the purpose excessive. 

"With the number of students who receive 
aid and the careful admissions policy— why is 
our alumni giving percentage so low? Hesitate 
to suggest that perhaps a minor factor in admis- 
sions might be the generosity of parents in 
support of church, educational and charitable 

"More should come from endowment, if 

"Approve with qualifications. Do as much as 
you can, and then take students who can pay." 
"Approve. The best experience I had at 
Sewanee was gaining the friendship, contact 
with and respect towards intelligent, motivated 
men from families with little wealth or social 

"Disapprove. Sewanee should be an elite 
school. There are plenty of fine public institu- 
tions for the disadvantaged." 

"I believe someone who qualifies or earns a 
scholarship such as a Merit Scholarship should 
receive the full financial benefit regardless of 
'need.' It is unfortunate and an inequity when 
only the very rich or very poor can afford to 

"Disapprove. It is unfair to students who 
pay to help carry load of scholarships." This 
respondent and others are apparently not 
aware that a student who pays full tuition 
still pays only half the cost of his Sewanee 
education, so is still on 'scholarship,' though 
others may be somewhat more heavily subsi- 

"I am a perfect example of one whose 
whole education and future has depended 
upon financial aid and my gratitude is bound- 
less to Sewanee for her unparalleled benevo- 

"Approve. One of the most critical aspects 
of admission. A retreat into wealthy isolationism 
could destroy the University." 

Endorsement of the idea that alumni represent 
a legitimate source of support was made by 93% 
in the following formulation: "Private education 
has always depended on private support. Sewa- 
nee's student charges, in the College, cover 
about 54% of the educational budget, a higher 
portion than is true at most comparable colleges. 
Essentially the only other sources are endow- 
ment earnings (at Sewanee about 35%), and 
current gifts which are budgeted at about 11%. 
Alumni represent a legitimate source of 

Of all those responding to the questionnaire, 
84% had actually made a gift, leaving some who 
approved on principle but had not yet acted on 
the approval. Both figures, compared to the 25% 
of all alumni reported as contributors, indicate 
that those responding were heavily self-selected 
toward those who do give. This should be borne 
in mind against the temptation to extrapolate 
the heavy percentage of agreement with stated 
propositions to "the alumni," most of whom 
have not been heard from. On the other hand, 
the torrent of reservations and qualifications 
assume greater weight from being voiced by a 
particularly interested group. 

Comments: "Approve so long as the alumni 
voice is respected in decision-making— not a 
Sewanee tradition." 

"Alumni do represent a legitimate source of 
support— and ought to recognize that they also 
depended on the benefactors of the University 
for the education which they received there." 
"Agree and think we should do better than 

"Should take advantage of federal monies- 
too paranoid about strings attached?" 

"My giving record has been poor but I hope 
it will be better. If alumni don't support 
Sewanee should anyone else?" 

"Only if they are able to give financial 
support. Some alumni (including me) are having 
to save all they can so that their children will 
have the chance to attend Sewanee." 

"Alumni who do not repay a portion of 
their debt to Sewanee should go to the Seventh 
Circle (Dante)." 

"As I see it, over a lifetime I should give 
Sewanee at least as much as Sewanee spent on 
me over and above what I paid. It's the least 1 
can do for some other scholar as poor as myself. 
Have you considered this argument for use in 
soliciting alumni donations?" 

"Disagree— what about dioceses?" 
"I feel obligated to support Sewanee— it's 
like an unpaid bill— that other 45%." 

"Let's get increased alumni support and 
reduce student charges." (This man backed up 
his opinion with a pledge of $1,000 a year for 
five years.) 

"More emphasis should be placed on sources 
outside the contributing alumni— perhaps enlarge 
the enrollment." 

"A legitimate source, but I've never come to 
the conclusion that they owe support. Many will 
want to. None should feel they must." 

"This idea is good. I hope enough of the 
successful Sewanee men will answer." 

"Many want worthy tax breaks anyway.' 

"It will be non-productive to increase the 

student's share. Endowment is the answer; but 


Many express astonishment at the low 
percentage of alumni giving, and some offer 
theories, like the college professor who sur- 
mises that many alumni are in his field and feel 
their first obligation to the institutions where 
they teach. 

It almost seems that the gentleman suspect- 
ing ulterior motives behind the questionnaire 
(quoted at the beginning of this article) has a 
point. It will be recalled by those who rece: 
the mailing— all alumni of the College— that 
three parts were included to save postage. In 
addition to the opinion survey there was 
closed a gift pledge form as well as other 
material. Over $90,000 was received in gifts 
and pledges in the return envelopes that ac- 
companied the questionnaire. As reported 
elsewhere in this magazine, alumni giving 
general showed a dramatic upsurge in the 
weeks following the mailing, and the po ss1 ' 
bility that the questionnaire had some effect, 
along with the personal solicitations by 
Operation Task Force workers and who knows 
what other factors, presents itself. There ar c 
those who, given the crass fact that money 
lets the University run, would say, "Viv* 
the ulterior."

The fourth annual Mediaeval Collo- 
quium will be enlivened this year 
with a concert of medieval music by 
the Collegium Musicum of George 
Peabody College in Nashville, per- 
forming in costume on reproduc- 
tions of medieval instruments. 
Purple Masque, Sewanee's College 
dramatic society, will also steep 
audiences in the period with two 
performances in Guerry garth of 
The Farce of Maitre Pierre Pathelin, 
a still-funny play written in about 

Leading speakers for the pro- 
gram of scholarly papers, critiques 
and seminars April 14-16 will in- 
clude Christopher N.L. Brooke of 
the University of London, who will 
give three lectures: "The Cult of 
Celibacy in Eleventh and Twelfth 
Century Europe," "Marriage and 
Society in the Eleventh and Twelfth 
Centuries," and "The Case of Helo- 
ise and Abelard." Daniel Poirion of 
the University of Paris-Sorbonne 
will speak on "The Woman in the 
Roman de la Rose," and lead a sem- 
inar on "Culture and Literature 
under St. Louis." Gordon Leff of 
the University of York will read a 
paper entitled, "The Concept of 
Man in. f-.-c- Middle Ages." 

Dr. Edward B. King, C'47, 
Colloquium director, says, "We 
have tried to bring into the country 
scholars from abroad whom people 
in this country would ordinarily 
not have an opportunity to hear. It 
is a service to the whole academic 

Participants come from all over 
the United States and from Canada. 
"We have four papers submitted 
this year from Canada," Dr. King 
says. Beryl Rowland, a professor of 
English at York University, Ontario, 
will read a paper on "The Legend 
of Trotula and Medieval Medicine." 
This deals with the role of women 
in medicine in the Middle Ages, or 
at least in that legend, Dr. King says. 
Historians are coming from Caltech 
and V.P.I, and a philosopher, Gerard 
Etzkorn, from the Franciscan Insti- 
tute at St. Bonaventure, New York. 
Janet Martin, professor of classical 
languages at Princeton, is on the 

"I believe the Mediaeval Col- 
loquium, bringing as it does first- 
class scholars to the campus from 
afar, is of great benefit to the Uni- 
versity. Most of them are here for a 
week and they visit classes, speak to 
our students. They are entertained 
by members of the faculty who 
thus have the opportunity of know- 
ing them and talking to them in an 
informal way. The University in 
turn comes to be known among 
eminent scholars, and it is connect- 
ed in their minds with scholarly 
undertakings. I think the Colloqui- 
um does a great deal to enhance the 
reputation of the University." 

Each year a number of alumni- 
scholars avail themselves of the 
occasion to return to the Mountain 
and engage in the interdisciplinary 
airing of research and ideas. Among 
these are John V. Fleming, C'58, 
from Princeton; Brown Patterson. 
C'52, from Davidson; the Rev. 
William McKeachie, C'66, from 
Toronto; Jan Nelson, C'60, from 
the University of Alabama; and Joe 
Kicklighter, C'67, from Auburn 

Dr. King also emphasizes the 
opportunity provided for younger 
scholars to read papers and benefit 
from the criticism that more ex- 
perienced scholars give their work. 
"Above all, there is the opportunity 
to be stimulated by outstanding 
people in their fields. It should 
enrich their teaching as it does 
ours here." 

Because of the wish not to limit 
these opportunities, lines have not 
been drawn closely around central 
themes. This year, however, Dr. 
King says, "A theme has worked 
out very well around celibacy and 
marriage, the role of women and 
attitudes toward women, and there 
are philosophical papers on the 
medieval role of man. For next year 
we are tentatively planning a theme 
—Dante and Dante's Italy." 

Although this type of intensive 
gathering together of disciplines in 
medieval studies is growing in num- 
ber, Sewanee's retains high national 
regard. Many participants have writ- 
ten spontaneously saying that the 
small size of the conference, allow- 
ing the group really to come to 
know one another and to have 

Come On In for Greece and the Adriatic 

Dr. Charles Binnicker, C'50, asso- 
ciate professor of classics in the 
College, and his wife, Meg (Duncan), 
C'73, will lead a luscious-sounding 
instruction-cum-pleasure tour in 
Mediterranean parts May 31 
through June 23, with the option 
of staying longer on your own. 
Alumni and friends are welcome. 

The trip, arranged by Clark 
Cruise service (Jim Clark, C'49, 
and his wife, Cruse) is planned as a 
"pleasantly paced, thorough exam- 
ination of two cultures of the 
past," according to the announce- 
ment. Leaving from New York's 
Kennedy Airport, the group will 
fly to Venice, "the seat of the 
Doges and their Venetian forces 
which in the Middle Ages held 
sway over much of the Adriatic. 
The influence of Venice will be 
evident as we motor down the 
Dalmatian coast through Split, 
Zadar and Dubrovnik. 

"The natural bridge between 
this culture and that of ancient 
Greece is Corfu, loveliest of the 
Ionian islands. Italian is the second 
language of this chic Greek para- 
dise long held by Venice. 

fruitful exchanges with the leaders, 
as well as the beauty of the setting 
and the warmth of hospitality 
shown them, sets Sewanee's Med- 
iaeval Colloquium apart from the 
others. "This is very gratifying for 
all of us," Dr. King says. "Many 
people work hard to bring this 
about." Members of his committee 
are Professors Brinley Rhys, Jacque- 
line Schaefer, Stephen Brown and 
Eric Naylor (C'58). 

The Mediaeval Colloquium was 
begun with the understanding that 
it would be an annual event, but in 
these straitened times nothing can 
be taken for granted. "We have 
some funds from the duPont lec- 
ture endowment," Dr. King says, 
"and enough in private gifts to 
assure continuance for at least two 
years. We are also inviting people to 
become patrons." 

"From Corfu we ferry to the 
mainland of Greece for two weeks 
of breathtaking scenery, classical 
ruins and art. Beginning at the 
oldest cult site of Zeus at Dodona 
we will also visit Delphi, Olympia, 
Pylos and Nauplia before arriving 
in Athens for five days. Then it's 
home again on June 23. Or you 
may stay in Europe up to twenty- 
two more days using the 22/45 
excursion ticket and travel at your 
own pace. Clark Cruise and Travel 
Service will be happy to help you 
plan an extension." 

Cost is $1,930 per person, 
double occupancy, plus $225 for a 
single. This includes all transpor- 
tation, first or superior class hotel 
accommodation, breakfast and at 
least one other meal a day, allowing 
for individual restaurant-browsing. 
All meals en route are included.

The Sewanee Tigers have found a 
lack of experience taking its toll 
this season as they hit a late-season 
slump. Although eight lettermen 
returned to this year's squad, the 
graduation of four starters last 
year has proved to be a definite 
liability for the '76-'77 Tigers. 

In their opener against Bryan 
College, Sewanee lost a tough one 
to the Lions by 78-74. Offense was 
not the Tiger problem as much as 
fouls and turnovers were. In their 
over-anxiety to get to the ball, 
Sewanee allowed Bryan a total of 
twenty-four attempts at the foul 
line, for which Bryan was success- 
ful at twenty. In contrast Sewanee 
cagers were successful in only five 
of seven charity shots. Sewanee's 
bright spots were the Cash twins 
of Chattanooga, who combined for 
40 points and 31 rebounds. Sewa 
nee reigned over Bryan in rebound 
ing, claiming 49 to Bryan's 33 

The loss spoiled Don Milling- 
ton's debut as head basketbal 
coach at Sewanee. Coach Mill 
ington, coming to Sewanee from 
CAC rival Rose-Hulman, has devel- 
oped an offense totally new to 
Sewanee players. The Tigers are 
adapting to the 1-4 offense. 

Holding down the wing posi- 
tion are returning lettermen 6 '4" 
senior Greg McNair and 6 '4" soph- 
omore Don Weber. 6'5" freshman 
John Southwood is developing into 
quite a talent at this position also 
as he has contributed a total of 
63 points to the Tiger campaign 
so far. The back court positions 
are kept tight by 6'1" sophomore 
David Muckle and 5'10" sopho- 
more Joe Thoni, both of Nash- 
ville, and both returning letter- 
men. Muckle 's cool ball-handling 
has left many opponents behind 
in smoke as he employs behind- 
the-back dribbling and passing. Joe 
Thoni methodically works the ball 
up court to keep the Tigers moving. 

Backup performance at guard 
positions is offered by 6 '2" sopho- 
more Bill Cox and 6'3" freshman 
Mike Ferry. Looming in the lime- 
light are juniors Harry and Larry 
Cash at 6'8" and 6'7" respectively. 
Both return for the Tigers and both 
are doing their jobs. Harry leads the 
team in scoring, hitting for an 
average of 15 points a game. Broth- 
er Larry is close behind with a 13.6 
point average. Both are averaging 
better than 11 rebounds a contest. 
Rounding out the Tiger bench are 
6'5" junior Tom Sage, 6 '6" junior 
Rob Jones and 6'0" sophomore 
Paul Cooper. 

Victory came to Sewanee after 
three initial losses to traditional 
rivals, in the form of a one-point 

squeaker over Covenant College, 
67-66. Standout performances from 
Harry Cash, who led Sewanee scor- 
ing with 20 points, and Joe Thoni, 
with 13 points, helped the Tigers to 
their first victory. Tom Sage came 
off the bench to have his finest 
game yet, scoring in double figures 
with 10 points. Harry Cash actually 
won the game for the Tigers in the 
final three seconds of play with an 
easy layup. 

In Wabash, Illinois, the Tigers 
weren't so lucky and dropped a 
64-62 contest to former mentor 
Mac Petty 's Wabash team. It has 
been a struggle for a team that has 
gone to NCAA Division III playoffs 
for the past two years and boasted 
a two-time CAC most valuable 
player and a three-time All-Confer- 
ence forward in past season show- 
ings. Coach Millington, however, 
remains optimistic in rebuilding the 
Sewanee basketball program. The 
Tigers stand at 7-12 in mid-February. 

Field Hockey Triumphant 

Sewanee is pioneering the growth 
of field hockey as a major fall sport 
for women in the central southern 
states where basketball and volley- 
ball have reigned for so long. 

Marth Swasey, director of 
women 's athletics at the University, 
believes that college women will 
find that their desire for vigorous, 
fast, exciting outdoor team sports 
will find greater lasting satisfaction 
in field hockey than in several 
other outdoor games being tried 
by women such as soccer (takes 
too long to develop all the neces- 
sary skills), speed ball (not as skill- 
demanding as soccer nor as dra- 
matic as field hockey), or touch 
football (never quite as good a 
game as tackle football which is not 
a desirable contact sport for women 
in her opinion). 

Sewanee's field hockey team 
beat Vanderbilt, U.T.-Knoxville, 
Centre College, Transylvania, and 
Agnes Scott twice each and Judson 
College once in its undefeated 
season. They hosted two two-day 
tournaments and won both of them. 
They went on to a regional tourna- 
ment in Greenville, North Carolina 
where they were beaten for the first 
time by powerful Duke. 

The women are only beginning 
to be a match for the seasoned field 
hockey teams which abound in 
colleges and as club teams along the 
eastern shore states where it has 
been quite popular since its intro- 
duction from England in the late 
1800s. Representatives chosen from 
these regional championship teams 
make up the strong U.S. team 
which holds a high place in world

competition year after year. Such a 
team will represent the U.S. in the 
next Olympics. 

Sewanee this year gained six 
freshmen who each had from four 
to six years experience on school 

The Sewanee field hockey team, 
first coached by Martha Swasey, is 
now being coached by Dr. Kevin 
Green, an economics professor at 
the University, and assistant coach 
Tina Cross Wicks, a graduate of the 
University and former team captain. 
This is its fifth year of play. Kevin 
Green played hockey as an under- 
graduate in England and in Belgium 
as a graduate student. He finds that 
the greatest difference between 
men's and women's hockey is in 
the way they hit the ball. Men have 
stronger wrists enabling them to hit 
the ball farther with greater ease 
and to be a little more dexterous in 
the stick work of maneuvering the 
ball in tight situations. The strategy 
of their games is quite similar. 

The women's tennis team also 
had an unbeaten fall season, the 
synchronized swim team capped its 
fall season with a win over the Uni- 
versity of Georgia; and the volley- 
ball team's play has shown great 
improvement. Synchronized swim 
and tennis teams will have compe- 
tition during second semester also. 
Other women's teams preparing for 
competition during the winter sea- 
son are gymnastics and basketball. 

Academy Girl Wins Fencing Meet 
Dorothy Defore of Dhahran, Saudi 
Arabia, a freshman at the Academy, 
won first place in the women's foil 
competition of a five-college fenc- 
ing meet held in Sewanee in Novem- 
ber. About thirty fencers were 
entered in the meet from Vander- 
bilt, Georgia State, Eastern Ken- 
tucky, U.T.-Knoxville, and Sewanee, 
Dot is the only high-school-age 
member of the University fencing 
club, which planned a return match 

with Eastern Kentucky this winter. 

The rise of a fencing team at 
Sewanee is concurrent with a new 
popularity of individual sports that 
can be enjoyed throughout life. 
Fencing is a lifelong sport par ex- 
cellence, with fencers rarely reach- 
ing their peak ml tiTaitei -the age of 
thirty. Dr. Arthur Knoll, associate 
professor of history, coaches the 
Sewanee team and also competes 
against the college-age members, 
with no particular advantage or dis- 
advantage because of age. 

Two of Sewanee's fencing team, 
Jeff Wagner and David Vineyard, 
had prior experience, the rest learn- 
ing the sport after they arrived. 
This year the experienced ones have 
been out of the running in compe- 
tition, while two others who 
learned at Sewanee, Buzz Sawyer 
and Allen Peyton, placed in the last 

Dr. Knoll says that foil isn't 
really a spectator sport, because the 
watchers find it hard to tell if the 
fencers have been touched unless 
there is a buzzer system, which 
Sewanee doesn't have. Saber is 
more interesting to an audience, 
but is getting started more slowly 
because of the expense, though a 
few students have bought their 
own equipment. Women, who have 
traditionally fenced with foils, are 
now taking up the saber in the most 
revolutionary aspect of this ancient 

Dr. Knoll began fencing in the 
army while stationed in Tokyo in 
1954, and continued it as a member 
of a fencing club at the University 
of Heidelberg in the 1950s and '60s. 
He also coached fencing at the 
Y.M.C.A. in Wallingford, Connecti- 
cut. Of his Sewanee fencers he says, 
"I am amazed at how well the stu- 
dents have done who have just 
learned since they got here." 
Though there are few teams to 
compete against, the Sewanee fenc- 
ing club is on the way up. 

MA RCH, 1977 


Swim m i n 8 

Sewanee was hanging on to hopes 
f or a winning season despite being 
short-handed, with the season 
standing at 3-3 just before their last 
m eet February 19. Coach Bitondo 
had only nme swimmers instead of 
an ideal sixteen to eighteen. Scott 
Ferguson qualified for the NCAA 
Division III championships in the 
100 and 200 butterfly, holding the 
school record in both events. In- 
stead of remarking on the Tiger 
meets, Coach Bitondo sends an 
SOS to alumni to cover the water- 
front and turn up more swimmers 
for Sewanee. 


Injuries have spelled the difference 
in the Tigers' wrestling results. 
Coach Horace Moore said, "We've 
been destroyed by injuries— I've 
never seen anything like it since I've 
been here." The squad is down 
from seventeen to nine wrestlers, 
with some expected to return to 
help out before season's end. At 
mid-February the record was 3 wins 
and 4 losses. 

"Before Christmas we had the 
best wrestling team we've ever had," 
said Coach Moore. "Recently Clem- 
son beat us by 15 points. We had to 
forfeit 18 points to them because 
of injuries, so that made the differ- 
ence in that meet. The same thing 
happened with Maryville— they beat 
us by 17 points and we forfeited 18 
points. But we're wrestling a Divi- 
sion I schedule." 

Despite adversity Sewanee has 
some outstanding wrestlers, with 
both senior Kevin Marchetti and 
freshman Tom Jenkins boasting a 
10-4 record so far. 


The gymnasts have just begun their 
season, losing their opener to Mis- 
sissippi University for Women at 
Columbus, 68-46. The Mississippi 
team was playing its first home 
meet in their new multi-million- 
dollar gym and were "all revved up" 
for the win. 

Gymnastics is scored by from 
one to five judges, who give each 
performer points according to form, 
difficulty of the moves attempted, 
and originality. Team scores are 
made up from the top three per- 
formers in each of four events. 

Mainstay of the Sewanee team 
is captain Nora Frances Stone, who 
competes in all events. Suzanne 
Yandow, who also competes in all 
events, is a freshman with promise 
to help Sewanee's team, which is 
rebuilding after graduating four 
seniors last year.

From the Stable 

During the fall season the Univer- 
sity Equestrian Center took several 
ribbons in various shows. In the 
Penrose Farm horse trials in Knox- 
ville, Lucy Paul won the pre-train- 
ing division on Alphonse, and John 
Tansey, director of the center, was 
third on My Charlie. Lucy took 
third in the pre-training division 
in the Atlanta horse trials on 
Master, and won the third training 
level in the Nashville horse trials 
on Alphonse. In the Nashville 
pre-training division John Tansey 
on My Charlie won first place. 
Mary Rose Gilchrist in the 
Nashville dressage trials achieved 
her first and second level Test 1 

and first level Test 3. The eques- 
trian center also hosted its own 
student horse show, with Tracey 
Wells winning the most honors. 

Three new horses have been 
donated to the equestrian center 
this year. Four new stalls are being 
added to the stables, and a heated 
office and lounge with a bathroom 
is being built. Also under way are 
plans to improve the paddock and 
ring area and the cross-country 

Plans for spring include a gym- 
khana, another student horse show, 
clinics with well-known riders, 
several picnic and overnight trail 
rides, and a combined training 
event at the end of the year. 

Sewanee has its tenth winner of a 
National Collegiate Athletic Asso- 
ciation graduate scholarship in 
Dudley West, a senior from Frank- 
lin, Tennessee. He is one of thirty- 
three to receive the award nation- 
wide in football. 

The University of the South 
is now tied with U.C.L.A. for sixth 
place in total number of scholar- 
ships won over the years. In Divi- 
sion III it is second only to Caltech. 

West, who was named the 
Tigers' most valuable player this 
year, is also an All-College Athletic 
Conference team member and is on 
the AU-American first team selected 
by the Churchmen's Sports Hall of 
Fame. The 6'6", 240-pound line- 
backer has ten career pass intercep- 
tions in his three years with the 
Tigers, and led the team in tackles 
in the 1975 season with 193. 

Athletic director Walter Bryant 
described him as "one of the finest 
linebackers we've ever had— out- 
standing not only in performance 
but in leadership qualities." He is a 
member of the Order of Gowns- 
men, Omicron Delta Kappa, Red 
Ribbon, Silver Spoon and Welling- 
tons and is treasurer of his Sigma 
Alpha Epsilon fraternity chapter. 
He is majoring in economics and 
plans to use his scholarship to 
attend law school. 

Dudley West is the nephew of 
Mrs. Henry Cannon, "Minnie Pearl" 
of the Grand Ole Opry.

Alumni Sons and Daughters 

Acting on an inquiry from the dean 
of the College, Paul Engsberg of 
the admissions office ferreted out 
the number of students in the Col- 
lege who are sons or daughters of 
alumni. He found that as of Octo- 
ber 12 there were 106, or 10.6% of 
the enrollment of 999. In addition 
there were 110 grandchildren, 
brothers, sisters and other traceable 

The dean wondered how that 
compared with the percentage at 
other institutions with enough simi- 

larity to Sewanee to make the 
comparison meaningful. The public 
relations office launched an inquiry, 
and shares the results herewith 
from those colleges who were kind 
enough to respond. It is more than 
a parlor game, as the percentage is 
a fair indicator of continuity, and, 
to a certain extent, esteem. (Col- 
leges vary in the weight they give 
alumni relationship as a criterion 
for admission. At Sewanee the 
weight is considerable, but not

♦After Sewanee *W 1|at ? 

Many alumni canvassed with a recent 
opinion survey, while approving the 
retention of the liberal arts framework for 
the College, expressed concern that 
students might also need help in finding 
their way into jobs. With this stimulus, the 
Sewanee News investigated what, actually, 
is being done along these lines. 

"Liberal arts colleges are becoming aware 
in the tight job market that students need more 
assistance in planning what they want to do and 
in methods of job search than may have been 
true in the past." Thus speaks Mrs. Dorothea 
Wolf, career services associate in the University's 
College of Arts and Sciences. 

At Sewanee placement has been a function 
of the whole University, with traditionally most 
of a student's advising coming from his or her 
academic department. Since 1966 there has 
been a separate office, which now calls itself 
"career services," as being more descriptive of 
the assistance available than "placement." 

Mrs. Elizabeth Chitty, director of career 
services (as well as financial aid), and Mrs. Wolf, 
associate, begin when a student first arrives at 
Sewanee. Mrs. Wolf presents their department 
and describes its services at freshman orienta- 
tion. They publicize "choice of major" seminars 
held in February for freshmen and sophomores. 
In this program, begun by the placement office 
four years ago, each academic department con- 
tributes information on what it takes to major in 
that discipline and what the student might do 
with such a degree. 

Students of all classes are encouraged to 
come in and discuss their options. Seniors get a 
monthly letter and calendar giving schedules of 
recruiters visiting campus, graduate tests and job 

A recent letter to seniors included informa- 
tion on recruiting by three law schools, three 
business administration schools, and the Marine 
Corps; information on teacher internships, para- 
legal training, National Science Foundation 
scholarships, and graduate tests; and reminded 
seniors to get forms filled in for their credential 
file. Mailing recommendations from this file is 
an important part of the career services office 
work. Another letter notified seniors of summer 
camp, resort and park jobs; alumni career coun- 
seling in law; vocational interest test for sopho- 
mores; teacher certification program; Rotary 

scholarships for study abroad; Sewanee Women's 
Conference and American Association of Univer- 
sity Women discussions on careers for women. 

National Outlook Improves 

According to a recent national survey, 
corporations expect to hire more college gradu- 
ates in 1977, and large universities have experi- 
enced an increase in job recruiting on their 

Engineers, accountants and business admin- 
istration majors were most in demand in the 
survey mentioned, done by Frank Endicott, 
emeritus placement director at Northwestern 
University. Teaching graduates were in for the 
hardest time, according to the survey. 

While Sewanee doesn't have many cor- 
porations recruiting on campus, the career 
services office has scheduled many interviews 
for graduate schools and is developing contacts 
with alumni who will help graduates get jobs. 
It also works with the alumni office on frequent- 
ly-held career counseling sessions, during which 
alumni return to the campus to discuss the 
outlook in their own fields of work with 
interested students. A number of these conver- 
sations have led to specific placement. 

Our career services office, true to Sewanee 
non-conformity, has had good success placinS 
graduates who want to teach, especially men- 
Mrs. Wolf sends a letter about our graduates 
interested in teaching to 150 independent 
schools, with encouraging results. 

MARCH, 1977 

on careers, graduate schools, professional asso- 
ciations, summer jobs and student travel, and 
government organizations. More up-to-date 
information sent by corporations and graduate 
schools is kept in an open file that students can 

Students who want to work during the 
school year can sign up for odd jobs such as 
leaf-raking, baby-sitting, tutoring, carpentry, 
etc., and the list of names is circulated among 
the community in a paper called "Skills for 
Sale." Some students obtain considerable 
employment through this route, but the 
community of Sewanee does not supply work 
opportunities for non-aided students in the 
quantity needed. 

A new project was begun by the career 
services office last year when they did a survey 
in cooperation with the political science depart- 
ment of its graduates from 1956 to '66, asking 
their present occupation and whether they 
would help new graduates with internships or 
tips on where to apply for jobs. A similar 
survey is now under way in cooperation with 
the economics department. The office plans 
to survey about one department each semester, 
but would like to do more. "These surveys 
cost a fortune to do," says Mrs. Wolf. 

Alumni Are Greatest Help 

There is a career services committee that 
meets twice a year to exchange ideas and make 
plans for additional services to students. This 
year the committee includes Dean Seiters, Dean 
Cushman, Dr. Charles Baird, John Bratton, 
Arthur Schaefer, Edward Watson, and students 
Mike Fagen and Billy DuBose. 

"The whole committee feels that alumni are 
our greatest source of help," Mrs. Wolf says, 
commenting that of the political science gradu- 
ates responding to the questionnaire, about half 
indicated willingness to help new graduates. The 
alumni names were turned over to students who 
wanted help, and it was up to the students to 
write to the alumni, so the placement office is 
not sure just how many got jobs as a direct 
result of this approach, but Mrs. Wolf says, 
"Everyone who wrote to alumni who responded 
to the survey received help." 

Students Enjoy Career Workshops 

Another project that has proved productive 
but has been limited by a small budget and 
smaller staff is the holding of career workshops. 
Mrs. Wolf met with a small group of students 
last year to aid them in deciding what careers 
they would like, using game-like tests to help 
them classify their interests. She would like to 
extend these workshops, but in competition 
for her time are all the other projects, plus her 
jobs as coordinator for Commencement and 
president of the Tennessee College Placement 

A recent study by the College Placement 
Council Foundation indicated that college grad- 
uates are becoming more dissatisfied with their 
jobs, posing further challenges for placement 
offices. Salaries for women were predictably 
lower in all fields, with the exception of eco- 
nomics, where they were about equal, and engin- 
eering, where the few women majors had higher 
salaries than the male majority though almost 
half of them were working in other fields. A 
salary survey of Sewanee graduates from nine 
recent classes was done by an economics stu- 
dent, Marshall Cassedy, and the data are being 
entered in the computer for analysis. 

A 1975 study by the Southern Regional 
Education Board projected an oversupply by 
1980 of lawyers, dentists and architects in the 
South, with the most-needed workers expected 
to be librarians, social workers and medical 
professionals. Mrs. Wolf says the fields she finds 
it hardest to place people in are public relations 
and advertising, and she thinks it is partly 
because people with no clear plans tend to think 
they sound glamorous. 

Any Major Is Good 

She sometimes gets questions like "What 
should I major in for this or that kind of career?" 
but says, "As a college our purpose is not to 
prepare people for specific jobs. Any one major 
is just as good preparation as another if the 
student takes the right electives— for instance, 
for a business career one should take economics, 
statistics, computer science and accounting." 

The national survey also made the point 
that one reason that liberal arts graduates were 
in trouble in the job market was because of lack 
of business-oriented courses— for example, many 
of them had had no math courses at all. 

The career services office gives out applica- 
tions for Civil Service examinations and graduate 
admissions tests. Dr. Robert Keele, professor of 
political science, administers the Graduate 
Management Test and the Law School Admis- 
sion Test at Sewanee. Edward Watson, C'30, 
who retired early from his law practice to move 
to Sewanee to work for his alma mater, has been 
helping students prepare for the LSAT in 
addition to serving as superintendent of leases 
and legal advisor to the development office. 
The psychology department gives timed practice 
tests for the various exams. The Rev. Charles 

Kiblinger, chaplain, has a degree in counseling 
and gives students different kinds of tests for 
vocational guidance. He gets referrals from the 
career services office "when people are really in 
a quandary" and, as part of his counseling, 
administers personality tests and IQ tests. He 
says, "My theory is that vocation is a lifelong 
implementation of one's self-image; my ap- 
proach is to help students come to terms with 
how they see themselves as human beings." 

Work-Study Helps Later On 

Mrs. Chitty and Mrs. Wolf say that the 
students' work -study helps them in their careers 
in many instances, giving them work experience 
they can relate to their future jobs. As director 
of financial aid Mrs. Chitty has the responsibility 
of finding work in the University for many 
scholarship holders, and there is an active inter- 
change between her office and the departments 

The career services office has published a 
booklet for seniors called How Do I Go from 
Here? A Handbook for the Job Seeker. "One of 
the biggest lacks our students have is in oral 
communication in an interview," says Mrs. Wolf, 
and the booklet is designed to correct this lack 
as well as give helpful information on other 
aspects of job-hunting and job interviews. She 
advises students in writing their resumes and 
covering letters, but doesn't do the work for 

With all the help the career services office is 
prepared to give, the burden of initiative is still 
on the student, who must come in and ask for 
help. In fact, that could well be the motto of 
this office: "Ask and you shall receive." 



Academy Alumni: 

A new year has begun and it presents an excellent excuse for all of 
us to reaffirm old, worthwhile commitments and to enter into new 
ones. We want to take this opportunity to follow up on some thoughts 
expressed to you last December. We ask that you give serious con- 
sideration to a commitment to support the Academy. In doing so, three 
practical questions need to be answered. 
Is the Academy worthy of your support? 

In his December note, Joe Gardner emphasized that while there 
have been changes at the Academy, its basic objective of providing 
quality education and a maturing experience in a Christian setting 
remains unchanged. As regular visitors to the Academy, we can attest 
that these objectives are being accomplished with excellence. We would 
like now to give you our views of the major changes. It is well known 
that the Academy is no longer military. There are many of us who very 
much enjoyed the military aspects of life at the Academy. Each of us 
must now decide if the absence of military activities detracts so much 
from the value of Sewanee that we do not want to help preserve and 
strengthen it. 

Serious reflection on our days at the Academy will reveal that the 
aspect of Academy life which we enjoyed so much and from which we 
derived so much benefit was the close association with other students 
from diverse backgrounds and with faculty dedicated to our total 
development. Even without the military, this is as much a part of 
Sewanee now as ever before. The fact is, the less structured atmosphere 
which exists at the Academy today provides better preparation for life 
in the real civilian world which most of us inhabit. 

Another controversial change at the Academy was the addition of 
females to the student body. The questions here are what kind of 
contribution do they make to the student body and how does their 
presence affect the experience of Academy life? The considerable 
popularity of the Academy is such that the administration must be 
very selective in admitting girls. The result is that the girls make a most 
positive contribution to student body quality and as graduates will 
represent the Academy in a way which will keep us all justifiably proud 
of carrying that honor. Their presence also creates an atmosphere in 
which they and the boys are prepared for college and subsequent life 
better than would be the case in an artificial, all-male or all-female 
setting. In summary, we believe that the Academy is well worthy of all 
our support. 

Does the Academy really need your support? 
The answer here is a resounding YES, and for more reasons than 
one. Funds are continually needed with which to operate and finance 
scholarships for deserving, high caliber students. Support through 

alumni annual giving directly affects the quality of all aspects of 
Academy life and as a result affects the quality of the graduates with 
whom we all will be associated by reputation. There is another serious 
aspect of participation in alumni annual giving. To fully appreciate it, 
we must realize that Sewanee as a whole is a capital-intense corporation 
which must deal with financial institutions and individuals who are 
considering major financing and endowments. Alumni interest in 
Sewanee is normally a significant -concern to the institution or indi- 
vidual in deciding if they should support Sewanee. The percentage of 
alumni who participate in annual giving is commonly used as the 
measure of alumni interest. The importance of our interest as expressed 
in this way cannot be overemphasized. Therefore, we believe it is clear 
that your support is really needed. 

Can you help the Academy in a meaningful way? 

To manage efficiently the solicitation and collection of alumni 
annual gifts, a unified fund drive has been established under the name 
"Million Dollar Program." The MDP serves the Academy as well as the 
College and. the School of Theology. While the name is intended to 
indicate the magnitude of the total need, it might convey an image 
of such bigness that an individual may feel the kind of gift he can 
afford is insignificant. In fact, not only would any gift be most welcome, 
but the simple fact of an expression of interest through participation 
would be important, as we said earlier. Each of us can afford annual 
gifts which will be meaningful. But why give through the MDP? The MDP 
has been very good for the Academy. More funds have been made 
available to the Academy from the MDP than have been contributed 
to it by Academy alumni. However, it is important that our annual gifts 
be designated for credit to the Academy. The Academy's share of the 
total fund will benefit from increased participation by its alumni. 

If you believe as we do that: 

1 . The Academy is worthy of our support 

2. The Academy really does need our support, and 

3. We can help the Academy in a meaningful way, 

we ask that you join in supporting the Academy through annual 
gifts to the MDP. If you still have reservations about one or more of 
these points, we invite you to visit the Academy any time it is con- 
venient and determine first-hand if you should participate in its 
support. You will find an administration eager to meet with you and 
discuss your concerns and probably (depending on when you grad- 
uated) a few faculty members who would be delighted to see you again. 
An even better idea is to plan a weekend on the Mountain next 
Homecoming, October 7-9. You will enjoy the festivities and have an 
opportunity to meet other alumni and attend the annual alumni 
meeting. We look forward to seeing you on the Mountain soon.

Beachcombing is a tradition during the 
spring holidays, but for some Sewanee Academy 
students, Florida yields up her treasures before 
then. For the third year James Banks, biology 
instructor, will take his marine biology class to 
the Florida State University Laboratory near 
Sopchoppy for Interim Term. Traveling by van, 
the group, nine in number, will drive to Florida 
in one day, live in the guest house facilities, and 
study elements of the marine food chain that 
make up the shore's environment. 

Besides the fun of collecting all kinds of 
crabs, shells and sea anemones, students use 
their findings as key subjects for research in 
the laboratory. They uncover a variety of life 
that amazes them— and they experience mo- 
ments of joy as they discover and learn. 

Students may observe research that is being 
done on the college level in the lab, thus seeing 
how scientific research and study are directly 
related to the problems of today. The economic 
and ecological impact of off-shore drilling is 
currently being worked on in the lab. 

Getting to know one another brings the 
greatest challenge and best reward of this eight- 
day period. Students do their own cooking and 
turn shucking oysters into a party. Visits to a 
wildlife refuge, snorkeling at night and tramps 
along the beach in the early morning expand 
the feelings of these students about the world 
around them. 

"And to think, before I came I never knew 
there was all this life beneath my feet," com- 
mented one of last year's enthusiasts. 

The marine biology trip described in 
Cook 's Choice is one of the many mini- 
courses offered to Academy students 
during their Interim Term. Dates for the 
Master-Students Term (as it is also called) 
will be March 10-23. Students will sign 
up for courses in fabric design, Civil War 
battlefields tour, advanced mountaineer- 
ing, bridge, rock geology and darkroom 
techniques, to name but a few.

Jim Overturf, who graduated from Georgetown 
College with a B.A. in Spanish in 1976, is from 
Centerburg, Ohio. He played soccer and cross 
country in college. "This is a unique little place," 
says Jim after a stint of substituting at his old high 
school. After over-large classes and armed-camp 
atmosphere he finds Sewanee Academy a warm and 
friendly place (despite the thermostat). 

Canadian-born Eleanor Stemshom is teaching algebra 
at Sewanee Academy this semester. She and her 
husband, who teaches math at St. Andrew's, moved 
to Sewanee with their two daughters last summer. 
Although she has taught math exclusively, Mrs. 
Stemshom has an M.A. in history and has done 
graduate work toward her Ph.D. at Duke University. 




The Academy basketball team at 
midseason stands with an even 
record of five wins and five losses, 
some games having been postponed 
or canceled on account of the bad 
winter weather, and despite the 
recent loss through injury of one 
of the team's leading scorers, 
Jimbo Hill, the Tigers should take 
at least an even record into the 
District tournament later in Febru- 

The team's play has been note- 
worthy, even in its narrow defeats, 
by its overall balance and teamwork. 
All of the starting players have at 
one time or another been high in 
scoring; Brantley and Hill have led 
the rebounding, Butler and Clay 
have consistently played good floor 
games, and Ruleman has been'stead- 
ily able to make the big play or 
the important basket. They have 
been competently backed by other 
players: Williams, Carter, Benning, 
and Morgan. 

In the pre-Christmas season, 
after a somewhat shaky start, the 
team came together to win four 
games, all against more seasoned 
competition. By far the most satis- 
fying win of the season so far, how- 
ever, came on December 10, when 
the Tigers visited the Saints at St. 
Andrews, who were 5-1 at the time, 
and rode home with a fine if 
narrow win, by 50-48. The re- 
match, sure to be just as hotly 
contested, comes on February 11 
at the Academy. 

The Academy girls, handi- 
capped by lack of experience 
against strong local teams as well as 
by some unlucky injuries, have 
nonetheless produced some fine 
streaks of play, and the Lady Tigers, 
too, after being down by a wide 
margin, roared back to overtake 
St. Andrew's in the closing seconds 
to win by 29-27.

ant professor of English at the

Princeton Gets Double Whammie 
Sewanee Academy pulled out a 
double win in basketball January 
14 over Princeton High School. The 
girls easily bombed Princeton's girls 
by a score of 49-17. All three of

Sewanee's offensive players hit in 
double figures as Kathy Patton led 
the way with twenty-four points. 
Betty Van Hooser added fourteen 
points and Mary Pope Hutson con- 
tributed thirteen points to the 
cause. Kathy Patton also led Sewa- 
nee in offensive rebounding as she 
cleaned the boards for ten offensive 
rebounds. Libby Baird made a 
brilliant showing with thirteen de- 
fensive rebounds. Catharine Arnold 
and Anne Cross aided the Sewanee 
defense in hampering the sluggish 
Princeton offense, which could on- 
ly muster nine points the first half 
and only eight in the second half. 

The Sewanee-Princeton boys' 
game proved to be a bit more 
physical but Sewanee managed to 
edge Princeton 53-51. At the start 
it looked like a game of catch-up 
for Sewanee but, by the end of the 
first quarter, Sewanee was in com- 
mand and at the end of the half it 
was Sewanee 29-20. Sewanee's 
first half sparkplug was center Britt 
Brantley, whose height helped the 
inside game both offensively and 
defensively. Brantley hit for eight 
points from the field and shot per- 
fectly from the charity line, five for 
five free throws. In addition to 
thirteen first-half points, Britt 
swept the boards for eight rebounds 
and managed to rob Princeton of 
two points with a finely blocked 

At the beginning of the second 
half Sewanee seemed too relaxed 
and allowed Princeton six unanswer- 
ed points before scoring a bucket of 
their own. Keith Clay, who hit on 
long field goals all during the first 
half, fouled out midway through 
the third quarter. His position was 
taken by Jimbo Hill, who put the 
Sewanee offense into gear. Hill 
wound up with twelve points and 
eight rebounds for the contest. 
Britt Brantley remained high scorer 
in the game with a total of twenty- 
two points and fifteen rebounds. 
Bob Butler added three points. 
Keith Clay and Scott Ruleman 
rounded out the Sewanee attack 
with eight points each. Princeton's 
high scorer was Bean with eighteen 
points. The victory helped Sewa- 
nee's record as it now stands at 

The Sewanee Academy girls' basketball team posted 
a 6-12 season in their second year of TSSAA play. 
An opening round victory in the District six Class A 
playoffs netted the team valuable experience for 
the future.

The immense popularity of 
soccer at the Sewanee Academy 
might mystify many of the Acad- 
emy's less-than-recent alumni. Had 
they been on the sidelines at the 
Sewanee-Tennessee Military Insti- 
tute game January 27, however, 
the source of that popularity 
would have been obvious even to 
the wholly uninitiated. 

There were dozens of literal 
chills and spills as the players re- 
peatedly were sent sprawling into 
the near-frozen water and mud that 
covered the Sewanee field. But such 
forbidding conditions seemed only 

to whet the appetites of the yet- 
undefeated Tigers. They made sally 
after sally into the goal area, until 
Art Cockett, after nine minutes of 
play, finally pushed the ball through 
foot-deep mud and into the mouth 
of the goal to score. In response, 
T.M.I, quickly rallied its defenses, 
and for twenty-five minutes scoring 
drives were frustrated time and 
again by T.M.I. 's aggressive tackling 
and Sewanee's own mud. When 
sophomore John Mulhall finally 
broke through and scored, T.M.I, 
gave in a little, and the Tigers' spirit 
grew until they were unstoppable.

Academy Sports 


Co-captain Bayard Leonard 
soon gave Sewanee its third goal. 
Then within a few minutes Archie 
Baker dribbled around three oppon- 
ents to add still another. The final 
score came as Baker took an assist 
from Leonard to earn his fifteenth 
goal of the season (he is only one 
goal away from a school record). 
T.M.I, remained scoreless because 
of the sterling play of such defens- 
ive standouts as fullbacks Chris 
Cook and Martin Knoll, and also 
because of the sure hands of ace 
goalie Melvin Lane. 

The 5-0 victory, however, was 
about what Tiger fans have come to 
expect from their team. After all, 
after six games the Tigers are aver- 
aging four points a game and are 
allowing opponents an average of 
only one point per game. Earlier 
in the year, Coach Phil White had 
commented that since he had only 
two returning starters, he considers 
this a building year. Well, if this is 
the kind of ball Sewanee booters 
play during "building years," then 
the Academy's enthusiasm for 
soccer is no mystery at all. 


The Sewanee Academy wrestling 
team closed its dual match compe- 
tition for the season with Grundy 
County on February 1. Although 
young and inexperienced and for- 
feiting 2-3 weight classes, the wrest- 
lers represented the Academy well 
with a 3-6 record. The wins came 
over Tennessee Temple, Marion 
County, and Grundy County. The 
losses were primarily against AAA 

Three Academy wrestlers were 
seeded in the district tournament 
held February 4-5. John Grainger 
at 112 pounds, Mark Gillespy at 
132 and Tim Williams at 138 were 
all seeded fourth in their class. Last 
year there were four undefeated 
Tiger wrestlers in regular competi- 
tion and only one was seeded in 
the tournament, so this is a big 
tribute to the strength of Sewanee 's 
team this year. The Chattanooga 
division, to which the Academy 
belongs, is the strongest in the 
state, accounting for the difficulty 
of getting wrestlers seeded in the

Brown to Be a Leading Speaker 
at International Conference 

Dr. Stephen Brown, professor 
of philosophy, has been invited to 
be the leading speaker in one of the 
four sections of the international 
medieval philosophy conference to 
be held at Bonn, Germany, next 
August. The conference meets 
every five years, and the selection 
of Dr. Brown confers worldwide 
distinction on Sewanee among 
scholars of the Middle Ages. 

Students Give Blood in 
Record Numbers 

Sewanee contributed 34.0 pints of 
blood to the annual Bloodmobile, 
with a quota of 200. Dr. Gilbert 
Gilchrist, professor of political 
science, who is chairman of the 
operation, says this topped last 
year's all-time record by thirty-nine 

Among the donors were 240 
students. An additional 380 volun- 
teered but were turned away be- 
cause of colds, recent taking of 
antibiotics, etc. Nearly two-thirds 
of the College student body of 
1.000 came prepared to give blood. 

Sewanee won two plaques on 
the previous year's record. Of 
seventy-three chapters in Kentucky 
and Tennessee, Sewanee won first 
award for highest percentage over 
quota and first for greatest number 
of first-time donors. Again the 
whole community has full coverage 
for blood when needed. 

Faculty Authors 

Dr. Robert W. Lundin, professor of 
psychology, has contributed two 
chapters to a book just published 
by Random House, Abnormal Psy- 
chology: Current Perspectives. The 
chapters are entitled "The Behavior- 
ist Perspective of Abnormal Be- 
havior" and "The Neuroses." A 
biographical sketch of Dr. Lundin 
will appear in the forthcoming 
eighth edition of The International 
Authors and Writers Who's Who 
published at Cambridge, England. 




Dr. James C. Davidheiser, assistant 
professor of German, had an article 
scheduled for publication in the 
January-February issue of the Mod- 
ern Language Journal, titled "An 
Interdisciplinary Approach to the 
Teaching of Foreign Literature." 
It describes model courses involving 
the combination of foreign litera- 
ture, music and history, along with 
problems involved and possible 
solutions. He also was selected to 
present a paper at the Twentieth 
Century Literature Conference held 
at the University of Louisville 
February 24-25, "Aspects of Time 
in Franz Werfel's Historical Novel, 
The Forty Days of Musa Dagh." 
The conference chairman wrote 
him: "The committee was deluged 
with a record number of papers 
and found itself forced to eliminate 
very good ones because of limits 
set to the length of the conference. 
You are, therefore, to be doubly 
congratulated." Dr. Davidheiser is 
in his first year on the University 
faculty, coming from the Univer- 
sity of Delaware. He has taught at 
the University of Mainz, Germany, 
and studied at the University of 

Seeing Stars 

Dr. Francis X. Hart of the physics 
department has been leading visi- 
tors from the general public in 
viewing the heavens from the Uni- 
versity observatory twice a month. 
This has become a popular activity 
among the area's teachers and 
schoolchildren, particularly. College 
students serve as assistants.

ily. Dr. Ward used the facilities of 
the International Institute for 
Applied Systems Analysis outside 
Vienna during part of the European 
stay, and is sorting out data here 
with student help. 

Scott Shares Expertise 

James Scott, instructor in chemistry 
and head of the outdoor program 
at the Sewanee Academy, will 
speak at the annual conference of 
the Mid-South Association of Inde- 
pendent Schools to be held March 
10-12 in Nashville. His topic: 
"Initiating an Outdoor Education 

During 1976 he was instru- 
mental in establishing the Smoky 
Mountain Nordic Ski Patrol and 
was appointed as its first patrol 
leader. John Henry Looney, C'78, 
passed the basic requirements to be 
a member of the service and rescue 
group under the auspices of the 
National Ski Patrol. 

Canterbury School in St. Peters- 
burg made a half-hour videotape of 
the wilderness training course he 
taught them at Sewanee last sum- 
mer. General Foods paid for the 
tape for commercial stations in 
Florida. Scott hopes to have a 
copy to edit for the Sewanee part. 

Cook's Tour 

Peyton Cook, the Academy's dean 
of students, attended the seventh 
Military History Symposium at the 
U. S. Air Force Academy in Colo- 
rado Springs last fall. Theme for 
this year's symposium was "The 
American Military on the Frontier." 
Bonus was a visit with son Peyton, 
A'75, now a thirdclassman at the 
Air Force Academy. Dean Cook is 
acting head of the Sewanee Acad- 
emy history department.

I can't afford it— I'm saving for 
college, say parents. But, for some 
students this way of thinking is a 
costly mistake. If the foundation 
for college is not firmly laid, the 
less mature student is perhaps being 
programmed to fail. Too late par- 
ents find that money should have 
been spent on prep school. 

The Sewanee Academy offers a 
fresh start, a new set of experiences. 
The learning/living aspects are in- 
valuable. You can't hide in a class 
of ten students. Being prepared be- 
comes a habit. You learn from your 
roommate to respect another per- 
son's feelings. Pressures from the 
group are in the direction of getting 
things done— and our students do.

Anthropology as a discipline was intro- 
duced at the University of the South in 
1972, with Mary Jo Wheeler-Smith 
as its first and present assistant professor. 
One of the earliest graduates to have 
taken courses in the subject was given a 
research job in the field, and the Sewanee 
News is pleased to have this account of 
her work, written by request, as an 
illustration of what may be done with 
the new (for Sewanee) discipline. Mrs. 
Stapleton 's field work was funded by the 
Human Lactation Center, Westport, 
Connecticut, which in turn was created 
and funded by the U. S. Agency for 
International Development (USAID). 

Lee Stapleton is the wife of the Rev. 
Archie Stapleton, T'59, rector of Otey 
Parish. The mother of five children, she 
returned to college and was graduated 
with honors in 1975, achieving election 
to Phi Beta Kappa. She majored in fine 
arts but also studied anthropology with 
Mrs. Wheeler-Smith. 

Mrs. Stapleton was one of four 
women from among many working in 
various parts of the "Third World" 
chosen to present her findings to an 
International Conference on Human 
Lactation in New York City March 4. 
The conference was co-sponsored by 
the Human Lactation Center and the 
New York Academy of Science and 
keynoted by Margaret Mead. The moti- 
vation for the research was summarized 
in an editorial called "Let's Listen to 
the Mothers" in the Lactation Review, 
1976 Vol. I, No. 2: "Those of us 
interested in nutrition, health and 
survival through breastfeeding need to 
enter into a dialogue with women, not 
make mandates unilaterally which 
regulate their acts. We must ask them 
what they want, under what circum- 
stances they can breastfeed, and what 
we can do to help them. "

By Lee Stapleton, C75 

In August, 1976, I returned to a village in 
the Philippines that in the course of ten years' 
residence between 1959 and 1969 had become 
very familiar to me and very dear as well. Two 
of my children had been bom in Sagada; all five 
had roots there. My own ties with the place were 
profound. I had arrived soon after my husband's 
three years at St. Luke's and his ordination to 
the diaconate, a young and inexperienced wife 
and mother, and had reached a measure of 
maturity among the Igorot women of the com- 
munity who shaped my growth and influenced 
my ideas of childrearing, mothering and life in 
general. Under their careful guidance, I learned 
to raise cabbages and chickens as well as children. 
I returned to the village last August after 
seven years' absence in a somewhat different 
role, that of an anthropological researcher. How- 
ever, since my basic approach to the task of 
gathering data was to seek out women in their 
homes and gathering-places, and to listen, re- 
entry into the community presented few prob- 
lems. My new role was not radically different 
from my old one. Renewing old ties, I was 
warmly received. 

I did not return alone. Some of the affection 
with which I was greeted was shared by Margaret, 
our seven-year-old daughter, bom in Sagada. 
Her participation was rewarding for her and 
enhanced my perception of the experiences 
and events of those three months, for though I 
was returning to a place and to people that I 
knew well, she was seeing her birthplace for the 
first time. I had no idea how a seven-year-old 
would react to being embraced and held by 
old family fnends who happened to be wearing 
loin-cloths and carrying spears. She adjusted 
to these new experiences, to the new faces and 
the unfamiliar landscape, to exotic foods and 
new demands, with poise and serenity. 

These experiences included travel over 
precipitous mountainsides in primitive convey- 
ances at the height of the monsoon season- 
often we waited for hours while landslides were 
cleared from trails. We arrived in the Philippines 
during a period of seismic activity, and there 
were almost daily quakes and tremors. Rainfall 
during the first four weeks of the field study 
period averaged four inches daily. The afternoon 
rains curtailed Maggie's outdoor activities and, 
in an environment where there were no toys and 
few amenities, she learned as an Igorot child 
does to enjoy stories and tales told by the light 
of the evening cookfires. We had settled com- 
fortably into a fairly typical Igorot household 
where four generations came and went, and 
Maggie soon became a part of their daily activi- 
ties, feeding chickens and pigs, gathering fire- 
wood, threshing rice and millet, tending moun- 
tainside ricefields and swidden-plots, visiting 
kinsmen in neighboring villages. Her adaptation 
to family and village life also made my work 
easier: she often represented me (accompanied 
by another 'family' member) at wakes, burials 
and wedding feasts; and her enthusiastic par- 
ticipation in the agricultural cycle left me free 
to devote myself to the work I had come to do.

Into the Twentieth Century 

My main task was to discover, through fairly 
unstructured discussion and dialogue with 
village women, to what degree acculturative 
change had affected their lifestyles, particularly 
behavior associated with infant feeding and 
weaning practices (such concern is highly 
appropriate in a setting where breastfeeding is 
the only safe and economically feasible means 
of nourishing infants). Most of the women I met 
and talked with are beginning to be affected by 
major cultural change. However, their lives 
are still characterized by a daily struggle to keep 
themselves and their families fed and cared for. 
In this subsistence-agricultural setting, every- 
thing is harder and requires major expenditures 
of human energy and time; current worldwide 
concern for the health of the infant and wean- 
ling demands that these women's priorities 
for themselves and their children be determined 
and clarified. Such a focus, an attempt to under- 
stand how women respond to dramatic cultural 
change— and the exigencies of their daily life- 
should help to explain and anticipate changes 
related to feeding and health care of small 
children. My specific goal was to find out 
whether Sagada's integration into the twentieth 
century was being accomplished in a manner 
that made breastfeeding difficult or easy to 

The data for the study were based on 
meetings with four informal discussion groups 
(mostly neighborhood groupings), involving 
a total of twenty-four women and about ten 
hours of discussion time. Verbatim transcripts

were made of all such meetings. In an attempt 
to keep group composition in line with com- 
munity social and economic levels, I met with 
two groups from illiterate subsistence farm 
families, one a mixture of women who farm 
and tend small family-owned stores, and a 
fourth composed of teachers (three of these 
had done work beyond the master's level, 
although their own mothers had been illiterate 

In addition to the group meetings, there 
were six individual interviews. Informants 
ranged from a nineteen-year-old primipara 
to a woman with forty-five grandchildren and 
six great-grandchildren. Two of the six were 
young schoolteachers; the rest were subsistence 
farmers or farmers and part-time storekeepers. 

Were Head-hunters 

The village of Sagada, the setting for the 
field study, is one mile above sea level in a high 
valley of the Cordillera Central Range of 
northern Luzon. It consists of approximately 
2,500 persons living in close proximity and 
12,000 living in hamlets up to five kilometers 
away. The language spoken is Sagada Igorot; 
there is little bilingualism among older persons, 
and discussions and interviews were conducted 
in Igorot. The main occupation of Sagadans is 
subsistence agriculture based on rice grown in 
mountainside terraces and root crops and other 
vegetables grown in swiddens and in gardens 
within the village. Approximately 75 per cent of 
informants contacted in this study were actively 
engaged in agriculture. 

The mountain province of which Sagada is a 
part is an aggregation of tribal groups, formerly 
aboriginal head-hunting societies. However, it is 
also an area of rapid social change resulting from 
external influences and contacts. 

Money income in the village ranges from the 

meager earnings of fanners to those of relatively 
prosperous storekeepers and professional 
persons— priests, doctors, nurses and teachers. 
About 25 per cent of informants in the study 
were from the latter group; but their incomes 
still averaged less than $100 per month. 

The community exhibits typically modem 
and traditional types of leadership, which 
sometimes conflict. Social cohesion exists on 
many levels, but the highest value is placed on 
the kin group. This made my relationship 
with a particular family in the community, and 
my participation in the daily life of the family, 
necessary for successful data-gathering. 

The main difficulty I encountered was in 
maintaining a commitment to free discussion, 
on the one hand, and to obtaining answers to 
specific questions in my protocol on the other. 
This, perhaps, I should have anticipated— it is 
not always easy to do field work among old 
friends and neighbors. I was eager to find 
answers but loath to become intrusively task- 
oriented. And, in addition, my concerns and 
the goals of the agency that hired me were not 
invariably the concerns of Sagada women. 
Many of the problems raised by the protocol 
did not surface frequently in discussions and 
interviews; often, informants' major concerns 
and interests were centered in other areas. 
However, all of the women contacted demon- 
strated considerable self-awareness and ability 
to speak frankly and eloquently of their 
concerns. These were nourishing contacts 
for me. 

Effects of Change 

The issues that emerged during my two 
months' study in the village fall roughly 
into two categories: "felt needs," the women's 
concerns; and those perceived by me as prob- 
lems but not generally seen as problems by 

informants. The women's stated concerns 
often revolved around change and its effects 
upon their lives; sometimes these worries 
related to their health and the health of their 
children- but often they did not. Issues per- 
ceived by me as problems (for instance, high 
incidence of malnutrition in the weanling, 
ignorance of basic nutrition concepts, cultural 
values concerning the behavior of caretakers 
toward children) appear to involve resistant 
aspects of culture, those that have withstood 
change. Most often these issues were not seen 
as problems by the women, possibly because 
they themselves survived such an upbringing 
in just such an environment to become pro- 
ductive persons. 

In spite of some findings that were dis- 
couraging, I was reassured to find that Igorot 
women of Sagada are still committed to 
breastfeeding, and that this aspect of child care 
has changed little. My recommendations for an 
action program included fostering and affirming 
present patterns of breastfeeding through the 
first year of life, while upgrading supplementation 
with solids and improving the diet of the wean- 
lings, which is deficient in many ways and 
appears to be directly responsible for the high 
incidence of first- and second-degree malnutri- 
tion among two- and three-year-olds. 

There are many frustrations inherent in field 
work, especially in brief periods of study such as 
mine. The work that I did raised many questions 
that are unanswered and likely to remain so, at 
least for some time. But, at the same time, this 
was a rewarding and stimulating experience. I 
owe much to the anthropology department of 
the University of the South for providing me 
with the theoretical background and knowledge 
that enabled me to do this work and, possibly, 
to make some small contribution to an import- 
ant field.

College Summer School Set for June 12 

Alumni and friends with college- 
age sons and daughters will be 
interested to know that the Sewa- 
nee Summer School, open to all 
undergraduates at Sewanee or other 
schools and to recent high-school 
graduates, will be held again this 
year, June 12— July 24. This sum- 
mer, courses offered at approx- 
imately two-thirds the cost per 
semester hour during the academic 
year will include biology, English, 
French, history, mathematics, 
philosophy and Spanish. 

The summer session has a three- 
fold purpose. First, it offers an 

opportunity for college students to 
take special courses not normally 
available during the academic year 
to broaden their academic program. 
Second, it serves previously enrolled 
students in the University who de- 
sire to speed the acquisition of 
their college degrees or to gain 
additional credits toward comple- 
tion of their class standings. Third, 
it provides to incoming freshmen an 
opportunity to adapt themselves to 
the academic demands of college in 
an environment which is relatively 
free of the usual pressures of extra- 
curricular activities. 

Regular Sewanee faculty pro- 
vide the instruction, and the course 
content and academic standards in 
most courses are the same. 

What could be more pleasant, 
summer school director' Dr. William 
T. Cocke, C'51, asks, than spending 
six cool weeks in Sewanee, earning 
academic credits, and saving money 
(a student can complete his degree 
requirements in three years by 
going to two or three summer 
sessions). If interested, write to 
Dr. Cocke or the director of admis- 
sions, Sewanee, Tennessee 37375. 

worth of study, orchestra and cham- 
ber music practice and perform- 
ances. Those who attend are mostly 
in high school and college, but 
participants' ages run the gamut 
from twelve to over sixty-five (Dr. 
Edward McCrady, former Vice- 
Chancellor, still faithfully holds 
his chair in the junior orchestra). 

New headliners announced for 
this summer's faculty are Kishiko 
Suzumi, concert violinist, and 
Julian Martin, concert artist on the 
piano. Winner of several interna- 
tional piano. competitions, he is on 
the faculty of the Peabody Conserv- 
atory of Music in Baltimore. 

Among other members of the 
SSMC faculty are: Dorothy Mauney 
of Oberlin College, violin; Colin 
Kitching, principal viola of the 
Royal Liverpool Philharmonic; Miss 
McCrory, cello; Nathan Kahn, prin- 
cipal bass of the Tulsa Philharmonic; 
Marjorie Tyre, concert artist on the 
harp, formerly with the Philadel- 
phia, New York Philharmonic and 
Metropolitan Opera Orchestras; 
Earnest Harrison of Louisiana State 
University, formerly principal oboe 
with the National Symphony, Pat- 
rick McGuffey of George Peabody 
College, principal trumpet of the 
Nashville Symphony and conductor 
of the Nashville Baroque and Clas- 
sical Society; and Crawford Gates, 
recipient of three Bicentennial 
orchestral commissions, who will 
teach composition. 

The unfailingly exciting music 
from the Center has become 
familiar to a fair-sized segment of 
the music-loving public through 
radio programs circulated from 
Sewanee over the past fifteen years. 

Further information on the 
Music Center may be obtained from 
Miss McCrory and on the radio 
programs from the office of public 
relations. Persons interested in 
enrolling should direct inquiries to:

Alumni Council 

Meeting for the first time since 
Operation Task Force was adopt- 
ed to boost participation by classes 
in the Million Dollar Program, the 
Alumni Council will come, to the 
Mountain on April 21-23 to see how 
the new approach has fared. Among 
other business of the Council will be 
consideration of new officers and 
alumni trustees for the coming year. 
Presiding will be George Elliott, 
C'51. Members consist of all class 
agents, Sewanee Club presidents 
and admissions counselors. 

Academy Board of Governors 

Reverting to a practice of former 
years, Joe Gardner, A'67, has sched- 
uled the alumni board of governors 
to meet at Sewanee Academy at 
Commencement, May 20-21. Among 
agenda business will be how the 
alumni can best aid the Academy in 
a year of transition between head- 
masters. Recently, the Governors 
issued a joint statement of affirma- 
tion after their twice-annual visit 
to Sewanee following fundamental 
changes in the school's approach to 
education through a civilian and co- 
educational situation (see p. 18). 

Career Counseling 

Career counseling in business, with 
an emphasis on banking and insur- 
ance, was held on November 4-5. 
Those participating were William; H. 
Smith, C54, chairman of the South- 
east Bank of Gait Ocean Mile in Fort 
Lauderdale; Anna T. Durham, C'73, 
director of First American's Young 
Nashvillians Club; Robert J. Hurst, 
C'66, chairman of the board, Mer- 
chants Marine Bank, Port Isabel, 
Texas; Wallace Pinkley, C'63, a part- 
ner in V. R. Williams and Company, 
Winchester, Tennessee; and William 
Rogers, C'49, vice president, the 
Equitable Life Assurance Society. 
Four medical professionals 
came to the Mountain for career 
counseling in medicine on Decem- 
ber 2-3. Dr. S. Dion Smith, C'60, a 
psychiatrist from Atlanta; Helen F. 
McSwain, C'74, a physiotherapist 
from Rome, Georgia; Dr. John R. 
Semmer, C'65, an obstetrician from 
Knoxville; and Dr. Russell Leonard, 
a general practitioner in Sewanee, 
shared with students their experi- 
ences before and after medical 
school and setting up a practice. 

Phillips Challenges Classmates 
Who among Academy alumni 
would like to accept a challenge?

ideas on a challenge. 


The Sewanee Club of Charlotte 
gathered on December 10 in the 
new NCNB Building with Dr. Ted 
Stirling, English professor and di- 
rector of the Alumni Summer 
College, as guest speaker. Henry G. 
Carrison, C'65, is the new president. 

Sewanee Club Holiday Parties 

The Sewanee Club holiday season 
began with the annual Christmas 
tea on December 19 in Nashville, 
hosted by Dudley and Pearl Fort. 
The Woodhill Estates Club was the 
scene of a holiday reception for the 
Sewanee Club of Columbia on 
January 7. The club voted to 
change its name to the Sewanee 
Club of Central South Carolina and 
elected the following officers: Earl 
"Trace" Devanny, C'74, president; 
Joe Lumpkin, C'71, vice president; 
Jennifer Benitez, C'73, secretary, 
and Bruce Hunt, Jr., C'71, treasurer. 
On January 9, holiday teas were 
also hosted by John and Loti Woods 
in Birmingham and Henry and Patsy 
Langhorne in Pensacola. Even 
though it was Super Bowl Sunday 
and both cities were experiencing 
inclement weather, attendance was 
excellent at these parties. 

All four of these parties were 
given not only for alumni and 
spouses but also for current and 
prospective students. This alumni 
support of our admissions program 
is most valuable and very much 

Play It Again, Luke 

Play Me Zoltan by Lucas Myers, 
C'53, opened at Lincoln Center 
in New York as an Equity Approved 
Showcase production and was taken 
to the Theater of the Open Eye, 
Second Avenue at 88th Street, 
Manhattan, for twelve perform- 
ances between January 21 and 30. 
How would a native of Sewa- 
nee come to write a play about 
zany Europeans? Well, he is married 
to one— not zany but a native of 
Budapest and a very gifted musician 
like Zoltan in the play. This charac- 
ter of Play Me Zoltan is a flamboy- 
ant Hungarian pianist. Mrs. Agnes

And on the reviews of that day 
in 1974 hangs a tale. Lucas had met 
Agnes in Paris at a time when she 
was giving concerts with great Euro- 
pean orchestras under the batons of 
such as Otto Klemperer of Vienna 
fame and Lucas was writing a play 
as well as poetry for the leading 
literary reviews. Lucas came home 
to America and the two lost touch. 
On April 12 a notice on Agnes' con- 
cert appeared in Cue which Lucas 
saw but too late to attend the per- 
formance. It was the first he had 
heard of Agi on this side of the At- 
lantic. Soon the romance bloomed 
again. The two were married in 
Durham, New York, last winter 
in a setting not unlike Sewanee in 
the Catskills where Luke has a 

A still from the play is caption- 
ed; "So Vienna speaks. Budapest 
says, 'Stuff your partridge.' " Asked 
to characterize this remark (one of 
the funniest lines in the play), Lucas 
likened it to the culture shock of a 
southerner telling a Yankee what to 
do with his rutabagas. Lucas no 
doubt has heard this kind of par- 
lance, but generally less rudely, on 
the floors of the United Nations, 
for which he has been an informa- 

tioi and oft since 1970. 

In January ol thi , ear the World

number one, of this fifth edition. 
He also is the author of United 
Nations: Thirty Years in Pursuit of 
Peace (Gateway-Kodansha Interna- 
tional, the San Francisco house of 
Japan's largest publisher). 

Trying to suggest which Myers 
is the more talented would lead to 
polarization between Liesl and Zol- 
tan, for Agi would nominate Luke 
and Luke, Agi. Our readers can 
decide that when they see Luke's 
play and hear Agnes perform. Some 
Sewanee alumni who saw Play Me

were Bill Donoho, C'43, Frederic 
K. Biehl, C'36, and Fitz Allison,

Not All Have a Deficit 


I was distressed to learn in the last 
issue of the Sewanee News that the 
University Corporation had suffered a 
deficit of $252,000 during the last 
fiscal year. 

In the discussion of the Academy's 
deficit you say parenthetically that 
"all private academic institutions operate 
at a deficit." This statement is simply 
not true. If it were there would be no 
private institutions extant at this time. 

All private schools, particularly those 
that take resident students, are having a 
difficult time balancing budgets in these 
inflationary times. But saying that all 
such schools are operating at a deficit is 
doing a disservice to the majority of 
those institutions that are operating in 
the black; and most of them do not have 
large endowments. 

Berkeley Grimball, C'43 
Headmaster, Porter-Gaud 

Charleston, South Carolina 

Mr. Grimball is quite right, and our 
wording was unfortunate. What was 
meant was that all private academic 
institutions (excluding trade schools 
and the like) have to supplement tuition 
income with gifts either in the form of 
endowment or annual giving. "Deficit, " 
of course, in this context, means an 
excess of operating expenditures over 
budgeted operating income. 

Liked Issue 


Congratulations to you and the 
other editors for creating such a fine issue 
of the Sewanee News as the December 
1976 issue. More than any other, this 
issue provides a genuine picture of the 
current life at Sewanee, inviting one 
inside rather than holding one at a 
distance. Sewanee comes through as 
vibrant, alive and very much herself. 

It was refreshing to note the absence 
at requests lor donations in the publi- 
cation. The lone and quality of this 
issue should do more to generate good 
will among our alumni than a league of 
letters explaining why they are needed. 
It is a pleasure to receive a publica- 
tion of this calibre from Sewanee. Thank 
you very much.

Makes Sure for Alumni College 

Dr. Stirling: 

The new issue of the Sewanee News 
arrived yesterday, and on leafing through 
it my eye was caught immediately by the 
article "Alumni Summer College Set 
for 1977." When I read in the last para- 
graph that over half last year's class have 
already signed on for 1977 I lost no time 
in writing this letter. Please add my wife, 
Jeanne, and me to your list of reserva- 
tions. Our experience there last summer 
was too satisfying for us to miss out on 
this coming session. 

Wyatt H. Blake III, C*50 
Sheffield, Alabama 

The report was misleading, and if I said 
it I was in error. What I intended to 
suggest was that approximately half of 
last summers registrants had expressed 
interest in returning to Sewanee for the 
Alumni Summer College. They had not 
made reservations. In fact there is still 
plenty of room for our second session in 
July. —Edwin Stirling, C'62, director 
of the Alumni Summer College 

Diploma Wording Challenged 


One of the girls in my dormitory 
at Duke University law school is a 
classics major and she was reading my 
diploma the other day. She said some of 
the words were in the wrong gender- 
male instead of female. I like the idea 
of a Latin diploma very much, but it 
seems to me that if they're going to 
be in Latin it ought to be correct Latin. 
Am I being ridiculously petty about 
this, or do you agree with me? 

It also occurs to me that the text 
of the diploma should be supplemented 
with a separate English version, as the 

Anne Marie Bradford, C'76 

This problem was referred to Provost 
Thad Marsh, who reports having consult- 
ed with Dr. Charles Binnicker, associate 
professor of classical languages, and 
with Dr. Bayly Turlington, professor of 
classical languages, who advised the 
Vice-Chancellor, "and it looks as if we 
have a conclusion. Iuvenis apparently 
really means a young person of either 
sex, and therefore is appropriate for 
both in the diploma, but the clincher for 
sticking to our present form is that the 
degree itself ("bachelor") is a masculine 
form for which there is no feminine 
equivalent, and the other adjectives 
have to agree with that. " Next question. 

In Response to Alumni Survey 

I applaud the University on making 
this questionnaire available to alumni. 
I hope the results will be treated in a 
manner befitting the Sewanee tradition— 
quality over quantity— and that the 
results will not be computerized, card- 
punched, and forgotten. 

Sewanee graduates take scores of 
different paths in life upon leaving. To 
me, the strength of the University lies in 
its ability to prepare each and every 
one with an intellectual (and, to a lesser 
extent, moral and religious) ability to 
cope with life. I have noted, with some 
disappointment, the way in which 
Sewanee tends to fall into the trap of 
idolizing those graduates who become 
exceptionally rich, exceptionally "suc- 
cessful," exceptionally worthy of head- 
lines. This, to me (exceptionally nothing 
in a newsworthy sense) turns its back on 
the thousands of people who gained 
immeasurably from their Sewanee exper- 
ience. The University may never "pro- 
duce" an O. J. Simpson or an Alfred 
Nobel, but on balance its students beat 
hell out of Vanderbilt or Southern 
California in their individual abilities 
to contribute and gain from their lives. 

If we believe that Sewanee should 
"set the stage" but not run the show in 
one's life, we should knock off the idol 
worship of those who come to the 
school born with abilities and show how 
Sewanee made them better than they 
were before. 

David Wiltsee, C'64 
College Park, Georgia 

. . . To be unique. To do one's job well, 
but more: to do a worthwhile job that 
few if any others are doing. This is 
critical for Sewanee. To continue a broad 
liberal arts program, requiring basic 
familiarity with all major areas of know- 
ledge—to teach scientific method, healthy 
scepticism— to admit only the best of 
scholars— to maintain a campus tone of 
life becoming to a gentleman or lady, 
yet without rigidity of manners— to avoid 
gearing one's program to job-market 
demands— with one school after another 
biting the academic dust and converting 

itself to a diploma factory, who will 
preserve learning? who give its students a 
chance to be wise as well as educated? 
If Sewanee turns away from these ideals, 
she has no further reason to exist. While 
she does, she has my support. 

V. Wesley Mansfield III, C'68 
Chattanooga, Tennessee 

I feel education should be provided 
for all those who wish to partake regard- 
less of race, creed, religion, economic 
status, etc. The teaching profession of 
which Sewanee is a part is learning that 
lesson that has been for too long so clear, 
but unheeded. If a child cannot learn the 
way we teach him, then teach him the 
way he can learn. Sewanee emits "aca- 
demia" but there are those who need 
something else. Sewanee should move 
out to embrace these others also. It has 
long been steeped in ceremony, pomp 
and tradition— maybe too long to make 
an objective survey of its place in a 
modern-day America with modern-day 
real-life situations. While at Sewanee in 
the summers of '71-'75, I met very few 
friendly "real" people. My professors 
were the best' with a few exceptions,: 
but I was happy I did not have to attend 
during the regular year. Professors in 
robes would give me an aura of gloom 
in a classroom — very depressive — where 
are the powdered wigs? 

I realize that Sewanee today is not 
for everyone but I fear many capable 
students are "turned-off" by the atmos- 
phere of "I need to check your family 
background before you may enter here," 
or "Are your parents graduates of 

My experience at Sewanee may or 
may not be a misconception but I 
experienced it. I thoroughly enjoyed 
the institute sponsored by the National 
Science Foundation and the people 
involved, but I could not or would not 
ever be a full-time student at Sewanee. 
I have seen much friendlier campuses 

Thank you for the opportunity to 
"sound off." 


The greatest danger I see for Sewanee 
is its tendency to rest on its reputation. 
I can best explain this by comparing 
Sewanee to Caltech, where I attended 
graduate school. Although these institu- 
tions have very different emphasis, they 
also have a great deal in common. Their 
enrollments are similar, both strive for 
excellence in what they perceive as their 
mission, both are dedicated to the honor 
system and both try to make the faculty 
available to the students— though for 
obvious reasons Sewanee is much more 
successful at the last point. 

The difference which I consider 
significant is that Caltech's emphasis is 
on being at "the leading edge" while 
Sewanee seems to feel that we were 
great we are great we will be great. I 
would not want to see Sewanee become 
a research establishment but I find grave 
danger in declaring, "We are great because 
we are and if you don't like it you can 
leave." These sentiments were in fact 
expressed when I was at Sewanee. It 
isn't whether or not you wear a gown 

(though it's kind of fun), or whether 
you are the third generation of your 
family to be a Sewanee "man" or 
whether alumni did great things in the 
past; the question is what we are doing, 
where we are going and are we on' the 
path. I don't mean to ignore one's 
heritage— Caltech is proud of its 
founders— but likewise don't conclude 
that worthy founding fathers insure 
success. In this comment I am avoiding 
specific examples of situations in which 
these attitudes prevailed though many 
are quite vivid in my memory. I hope the 
trend of my thoughts is clear without 
case histories. In the years since I left 



been substantial 

changes. I hope my comments are direct- 
ed toward an already -solved problem. 
In closing I would, however, like to 
raise a specific question and/or issue. 
A recent issue of the News showed a 
ranking of colleges by percentage number 
of graduate scholarships awarded ath- 
letes. Both Sewanee and Caltech rated 
very high. A recent issue of Science 
(within the last two or three months) 
carried a ranking of colleges by percent- 
age of graduates with earned doctorates 
in various fields and over a span of 
roughly thirty years. Sewanee was quite 
absent from the list of the top twenty- 
five (I believe it was twenty-five) schools. 
Isn't this a more meaningful comparison? 
Where does Sewanee rank? Are we happv 
with that rank? 

G. Price Russ III, C'68 

La Jolla, California 

/ wonder how the Science list was 
compiled. Many of the societies in the 
experimental sciences and mathematics 
keep computer files on their members, 
and the undergraduate sources of 
members with earned doctorates would 
be easy to retrieve. Sewanee would not 
rank high in those fields, simply because 
such a small percentage of Sewanee 
students end up majoring in mathematics 
or science. But I wonder about earned 
doctorates in the other disciplines. I bet 
we would rank pretty high, though 
probably not in the first ten. It would 
be worth tracking down, although very 
time-consuming. —Stephen E. Puckette, 
C'49, Dean, College of Arts and Sciences 

From One of the 2% Unfavorable 

My present views and feeling are 
based on about a dozen of Sewanee's 
recent graduates. All shared the same 
philosophy with which I totally disagreed, 
and I am ashamed to admit I attended 
the same institution.

Bulletin: Million Dollar Program total as of May 25 is $822,221. 


by Marcus L. Oliver 

Director of Annual Giving 

The month of June has another 
identity. "Tis June the month of 
roses . . . and gifts to Sewanee in 
large numbers." At least this is 
what Sewanee fund-raisers trust 
will happen. 

June has replaced August as the 
twelfth month in the University's 
fiscal year and thus is heir to the 
claim of being the second most 
productive month in terms of 
gifts. December has long reigned as 
the uncontested winner, with one 
notable and currently significant 

The exception is August of 
1975 when, as twelfth and final 
month in the Challenge Year, 
$216,588 dollars were received 
for Sewanee's Million Dollar Pro- 
gram; and thereby hangs a dilemma. 
The dilemma is that now, in the 
regrouping of monthly gift records 
according to the new fiscal year, 
August 1975 becomes the second 
month in the fiscal year 1975-76 
which also includes December 
1975's respectable $187,805 and 
June 1976's $158,457. This loads 
the year unnaturally, making it a 
tough act to follow. 

As a consequence, the Million 
Dollar Program is for the first time 
in its seven-year history running 

significantly behind the previous 
year on a month-by-month com- 
parison. As of April 30 this year's 
MDP gift total is lagging some 
$108,599 behind last year's. 

The miracle is that the disparity 
between this year and last is not 
even greater, and it would have 
been had December 1976 not 
broken all monthly records with 
$306,847 ($187,805 in 1975 and 
$176,505 in 1974) for MDP gifts. 
Since gifts to MDP apply directly 
to the operating budget they are 
especially critical. 

We are behind by about 
$11,565 when restricted gifts are 
combined with MDP gifts, showing 
a total of $1,283,382. The addition 
of bequests, of which there have 
been remarkably few this year, 
throws the lead substantially in 
favor of last year: $1,661,828 
(75-76) to $1,354,408 (76-77). 

** number of good things are 
working which should help make 
the month of June finish strong 
and thus enable the Million Dollar 
Program to exceed its goal for the 
third straight year. The new feature 
in Sewanee's fund-raising efforts is 
the program built around visits 
with the Vice-Chancellor, which 
have been held in Dallas, Houston, 
Shreveport, Nashville, Atlanta, 
Memphis and Louisville. The 

mission of these dinners has been 
the identification, cultivation and 
solicitation of major gift prospects. 

There is reason for encourage- 
ment. The number of members 
of the Chancellors Society ($10,000 
minimum unrestricted gift) is of 
this date thirteen compared to the 
same number secured during the 
whole of last year. It appears that 
membership in the Vice-Chancellor's 
and Trustees' Society (minimum of 
$1,000) and the Century Club 
(minimum of $100) are running 
ahead of last year. 

Metropolitan Area Campaigns, 
the United Fund type of program 
where enough volunteers are re- 
cruited to make personal calls on 
essentially every Sewanee prospect 
in a given city were held in Char- 
lotte, Miami, Tampa, Jackson, 
Mississippi and the Huntsville, 
Alabama area. 

The experimental program of 
the alumni of the College, Opera- 
tion Task Force, has had the 
interesting result of increasing the 
number of College alumni donors

Chancellor's Address to the Board of Trustees 

University of the South 
Sunday, May 1,1977 

In this Chapel at convocations opening a new 
school term, Founders' Day celebrations, 
Commencement exercises, and occasions such 
as this, the University Prayer traditionally is 
prayed. The petition within the University 
Prayer which seems to linger longest in the 
congregation's ears, is most readily remembered 
after leaving the Chapel and has produced the 
most commentsHf not the most Amens— is in 
the polished phrases: "and raise up, we pray, a 
never-failing succession of benefactors." 

Within the prayer, this petition follows 
requests that God bless the University; give 
the spirit of wisdom to all who share the au- 
thority of teaching and governing; provide 
the grace for the daily growing, enlightening, 
purifying, and sanctifying of students' bodies, 
minds, hearts, and wills; and bless all who 
have contributed in any good way to this 

Then after God is petitioned to "raise up 
a never-failing succession of benefactors," 
the prayerful hope is expressed that the names 
of such may continue always in the happy 
memories of those who benefit from the offer- 
ings of service and gifts, which can only become 
acceptable through the merits of the Lord Jesus 

By definition and performance, benefac- 
tors literally and actually are those whose 
good works and good gifts make for the well- 
being of others. The term is accurately descrip- 
tive of those whose gifts and services provide 
opportunities, means, and assistance to enable 
other persons and institutions to become bene- 
factors. The effective benefactors, like the 
effective purpose and prayer of this University, 
add to "the succession of benefactors." 

There is more historic evidence of the 
positive and affirmative response to the prayers 
in behalf of this University for a succession of 
benefactors than has been recorded or can be 
measured. There are lists and records of many 
benefactors whose contributions have enabled 
and strengthened the beneficial services of 
Sewanee's institutions. An impressive listing is 
inscribed in the stone, glass, and wood of this 
Chapel. And while this Chapel of All Saints 
offered to the glory of God honors the memory 
of all benefactors, listed and unlisted, there is no 
complete list available of all those who thus far 
have in an unfailing succession shared, as best 
they could, the good life to which— or is it 
more accurate to say, to whom— this Univer- 
sity and this Chapel are dedicated. 

To borrow a few verses from the Book 
Ecclesiasticus (44:9-12): 

"Some there be, which leave no memorials; 

Who are perished as though they had not 

and are become as though they had not 
been born; 

and their children after them. 

But these were men of mercy, 

Whose righteous deeds have not been for- 

With their seed shall remain continually 
a good inheritance ; 

Their children are within the Covenants. 

Their seed standeth fast, 

and their children for their sakes." 

The prayers of and for this University, 
therefore, should never fail to include thanks- 
givings for the un-numbered and unlisted, as 
well as for those well recognized, whose service 
and gifts have provided and do provide the 
substance which relates and binds together the 
spiritual and material substance of this Univer- 
sity corporation. 

And, moreover, if such prayers are to be 
faithful and creditable, every person, within 
the community of purpose to realize the dedi- 
cation of this University to the development, 
conservation, and well-being of each person in a 
more wholesome society and environment, is 
entrusted with the responsibility to become a 
benefactor. All of us here share both trusteeship 
and the benefactor vocation with every member 
of the owning dioceses, with alumni, students, 
faculty, auxiliary staffs, administrators, and 
friends of Christian education. 

One whom we have come to recognize 
as a benefactor and devoted servant of Sewa- 
nee is the Vice-Chancellor of this University, 
Jefferson Bennett. He and the Lady Chris 
have for six years given most generously and 
graciously of themselves to the life of this place. 

There is no adequate means to measure 
their contributions. Love is immeasurable. 
Many more benefit from kindness and com- 
passion than can be counted. The Bennetts' 
contributions are all mixed up in loving kindness 
and compassion. 

Now Dr. Bennett has submitted his resigna- 
tion to this board. He who has reminded us that 
the average college president's tenure averages 
five years has exceeded that average by one year. 
He was willing to serve longer in the office of 
Vice-Chancellor. Yet he is resigning, and in

JU,NE 1977 


Robert M. Ayres, Jr., C'49, H'74, 
of San Antonio, Texas was named 
acting Vice-Chancellor and Presi- 
dent of the University of the South 
by the board of regents at their 
April meeting. 

Mr. Ayres is an alumnus of the 
University, former chairman of the 
board of regents, former president 
of the Associated Alumni, and 
currently volunteer chairman of its 
development program for annual 
giving, the Million Dollar Program. 
He will replace Dr. J. Jefferson 
Bennett, who is leaving office June 
30, while a search is under way for 
his successor. 

After the regents met in special 
session to accept Dr. Bennett's 
resignation the Chancellor, Presid- 
ing Bishop John M. Aliin, asked the 
joint faculties to mail him individu- 
ally a recommendation for an 
acting Vice-Chancellor. Robert 
Ayres' name appeared as the over- 
whelming choice. 

Dr. Richard B. Doss, chairman 
of the board of regents, in announc- 
ing the appointment said, "Robert 
Ayres' willingness to set aside his 
personal concerns and accept this 
responsibility is a stroke of great 
good fortune for the University. He 
commands the respect and admira- 
tion of our faculty, students, alumni 
and benefactors. From that and his 
own strength will come the author- 
ity to make the decisions which can- 
not wait a year for the appointment 
of a permanent Vice-Chancellor." 

Mr. Ayres is a senior vice-presi- 
dent of the investment banking 
firm of Rotan Mosle, Inc. He has 
been a member of the Governing 
Council of the Securities Industry 
Association and chairman of the 
Texas Investment Bankers' Associ- 
ation. He serves on numerous 
corporation, civic and philanthropic 
boards, and is currently on the 
Executive Council of the Episcopal 

For the past two years he has 
been on leave of absence to pursue 
fundraising work for the University 
of the South and for work in world 
relief. During this time, he was 
appointed by the Presiding Bishop 

to assist in the organization of the 
Venture in Mission program, an 
effort to raise significant funds for 
the mission work of the Church. 

Robert Ayres is a 1949 gradu- 
ate of the University of the South, 
attended Oxford University in Eng- 
land, and has an M.B.A. degree 
from the Wharton School of Fi- 
nance and Commerce of the Univer- 
sity of Pennsylvania. He also holds 
an honorary degree of Doctor of 
Civil Law from the University of 
the South . 

He is married to the former 
Patricia Ann Shield and they have 
a son and a daughter. The son,

by 164 over last year, an increase 
of 11.9%; but the dollar total of 
these gifts is smaller by some 

Persons who contemplate 
making a gift to Sewanee should 
check to see if their employers 
are among the six hundred com- 
panies which match employee gifts, 
some on a two-for-one basis. A 
number of substantial gifts have 
come by this route. 

Academy alumni from the 
class of 1921 through 1931, inclu- 
sive, may qualify for having their 
gifts matched by a fellow alumnus. 
Louie M. Phillips, A'26, of Nash- 
ville, has challenged Academy 
alumni from his decade who were 
not donors-of-record last year by 
offering to match their gifts up to 
a total investment on his part of 
$2,500. May his tribe increase! 

All of these programs tend to 
have a cumulative effect as the 
fund-raising year nears its climax. 
If the efforts of literally hundreds 
of volunteers pay off as expected, 
the month of June will rival Augusts 
and even Decembers of the past in 
terms of production of gifts; and 
the Million Dollar Program will 
continue its recent habit of exceed- 
ing goals. 

Robert Atlee Ayres, is a freshman 
Wilkins Scholar in the College. 

Search Committee 
A search committee to name a 
permanent Vice-Chancellor had its 
organizational meeting Sunday, 
May 1. The committee was ap- 
pointed by the Chancellor, Bishop 
Allin, and convened by former 
Chancellor Bishop Girault M. Jones, 
T'28, H'49, whom the committee 
then elected chairman. Members are 
Bishop Furman Stough, C'51, T'55, 
H'71, of Alabama, the Rev. Maurice 
M. Benitez, T'58, rector of the 
Church of St. John the Divine in 
Houston, Texas, and the Rev. Ed- 
ward Dudley Colhoun, C'50, of St. 
Paul's Church, Winston-Salem, 
North Carolina. Faculty trustees on 
the committee are Dr. Gilbert 
Gilchrist, C'49, professor of politi- 
cal science, and Dr. Anita Good- 
stein, professor of history. The 
student trustee on the committee 
is Thomas Hunt Williams of Clarks- 
ville, Tennessee, and the two lay 
members are Harold Eustis, C'37, 
businessman of Greenville, Missis- 
sippi and Thomas Tisdale, C'61, 
lawyer of Charleston, South Caro- 

Dr. Gilchrist has been made 
secretary. All suggestions to the 
committee should be sent to S.P.O. 
Box 1165 at Sewanee. Your co- 
operation will be most welcome, 
the committee emphasizes. 

Faculty Salaries Lag 

A study made from 1975-76 data 
by the Sewanee chapter of the 
American Association of University 
Professors showed faculty salary 
increases nationwide failing to 
keep pace with inflation. At Sewa- 
nee, average money compensation 
increased 7.3% reflecting the in- 
creased University contribution to 
the teachers' retirement fund plus 
small salary increases averaging 
3.3%. This' was slightly above the 
national average but below average 
for the list of twenty-four colleges 
with which the University compares 
itself in various ways. Sewanee 
ranks seventeenth on this list of 

The A.A.U.P. offered a resolu- 
tion, passed by the faculty, request- 
ing the regents to reaffirm a goal of 
attaining fourteenth place on this 
list by 1980 and expressing concern 
"that the continued treatment of 
faculty salaries as a residual item in 
the budget creates little likelihood 
that this goal will be attained." A 
faculty committee from the three 
units studying budget priorities also 
concluded that salaries were regard- 
ed as a residual and not a priority 

The regents in February order- 
ed $80,000 added to faculty 
salaries, the funds to come from 
already-submitted non-academic 
budgets. These revisions have been 
under way. 


Donald Roderick Welles, Jr. has 
been appointed headmaster of the 
Sewanee Academy, succeeding 
Henry Hutson, C'50, who has 
accepted the headmastership of his 
alma mater, Christ School in Arden, 
North Carolina. 

Mr. Welles is presently director 
of the Upper School at the Port- 
ledge School in Locust Valley, New 
York. He is a graduate of Hotchkiss 
School and Yale University, and 
earned his M.Div. degree from the 
Episcopal Theological School in 
Cambridge, Massachusetts. He was 
bom in Wilmington, Delaware on 
April 17, 1935, is married and has 
two children. 

He served as curate at Christ 
Church, Exeter, New Hampshire 
and at St. George's Church in Lon- 
don, England, then was chaplain 
to the Winant Volunteers, a group 
doing social service in England and 
Scotland. In 1964 he joined the 
faculty of St. Paul's School in 
Concord, New Hampshire, where he 
taught religion and was acting head 
of the department for a year. He 
was founder and director of the 
school's Independent Study Pro- 
gram, in which students worked 
with faculty to design their own 
curricula for all or part of the 
academic year. While there he was 
chairman of the Concord Human 
Rights Council and a member of 
the board of directors of the Con- 
cord Mental Health Center. 

He has worked several summers 
with the Outward Bound School at 
Hurricane Island, Maine. From 
1971 to 1972 he served as project 
manager for the Scaife Foundation 
study at the Smithsonian Institu- 
tion's Chesapeake Bay Center for 
Environmental Studies. In that 
capacity he provided administra- 
tive and logistical support for 
research on the feasibility of 
restoring a wilderness island land 
mass by utilizing the debris of 
urban renewal programs. 

In 1972 he became director 
of the Portledge School's Upper 
School, a newly formed college 
preparatory school emphasizing 
individualized instruction and 
independent study. 












(Continued from page 2) 

doing so, he reveals again to those well acquaint- 
ed with him, a combination of realism mixed 
with love and faith and humility. 

The reality of professionalism and ex- 
perience is evidenced in one who perceives 
the office occupied and service offered within 
the context of an institution as a contribution 
to the purpose, movement, and life of the 
institution rather than an end in itself. 

The reality of professionalism and a pro- 
fessional evaluation of reality are also manifest 
when, after an honest consideration of the 
conditions and circumstances of corporate 
relations, responsibility, and development, an 
administrator decides with integrity and without 
rancor to offer an organization or institution the 
potential of new leadership by resigning as chief 

Jefferson Bennett is the personification of 
just such professional reality. 

Association with Jeff Bennett, however, 
leads rapidly to the realization that he is to 
be appreciated for more than his professional- 
ism and realism. Those attributes are enhanced 
by love and faith and humility. Both Jeff 
and Chris Bennett have demonstrated love for 
this community and this University, or to be 
more accurate, for the people of this place. 
They demonstrated faith in coming to Sewa- 
nee and have been faithful in their service 
here. The decision to resign has been offered 
with a precious humility and grace. 

Certainly the love they have bestowed in 
service to this University community places 
them permanently in that "never-failing suc- 
cession of benefactors" for whom this Uni- 
versity prays. 

A recollection worth sharing is of an occa- 
sion when the present Vice-Chancellor received 
criticism for failure to discharge a member of 
the University staff considered ineffective. One 
observer noted in passing that it might be that 
the major weakness of the Vice-Chancellor as an 
administrator is his compassion. 

Observation of the office and duties of 
the Vice-Chancellor may lead to an appraisal 
that the burdens placed upon any occupant 
are more than one person can bear alone or 
for long duration. The trustees might do well 
to call upon the regents to re-examine and 
evaluate the job description and make pro- 
visions for re-alignment or additional staffing 
if necessary. 

Meanwhile, we have occasion to give thanks 
for the many contributions of Jeff and Chris 
Bennett and to pray for a "never-failing succes- 
sion" of Vice-Chancellors with compassion. 

Evidence of affirmative answers to our 
prayers for a worthy succession of benefac- 
tors is provided in the availability of another 
dear friend and servant— son of Sewanee, Robert 
Ayres, who has responded to yet another urgent 
call from his Alma Mater. 

We have additional reason to give thanks 
that he is able to accept the regents' request 
to serve as interim Vice-Chancellor for a term 
of up to one year. With complete confidence 
and prayerful gratitude, both the Chancellor 
and the Presiding Bishop recommends and 
requests without qualification the confirma- 
tion and unanimous support of Robert Ayres 
in his never-failing dedication to this Univer- 

Only such dedication can fulfill the purpose 
and high calling of this Christian University. The 
cause to be served requires the best offerings of 
a never-failing succession. Experience, both 
bitter and sweet, teaches the necessity of sharing 
and passing on this vital enterprise of Christian 
education. The work is exhaustive and requires 
the best of the best. 

My constant prayer for Sewanee is continual 
deliverance from mediocrity. Both human need 
and our survival as a people and an institution 
demand excellence. Our goals and standards are 
not set by the world's fashions and fads. Such 
substitutes must not be accepted. Our achieve- 
ment too long has fallen far short of our poten- 
tial; too often our heritage is left unclaimed. 

The echo of this age may prove to be the call 
for the new life style, yet unheeded because un- 
heard as a result of the confusion in these present 
days. The purpose of such institutions as this 
University is, and has been, to develop the intelli- 
gence, strengthen the body, motivate the will, 
and affirm the spirit for the well-being of human- 
ity, the conservation of the environment, the 
good use of the earth, and a more abundant life 
for all. Our professed commitment is to the 
vital process of providing the best possible 
opportunity and stimulus toward the wholesome 
fruition of every unique individual we can serve. 
That fruition is only realized by those whose 
appreciation for the offerings of life comes to 
fulfillment in the experience of offering them- 
selves in return through service. 

Let us translate the high calling into prayers 
and transmit our prayers into disciplined service 
in order to claim and share and enjoy our 
goodly heritage.

Bennett Tells Alumni

that this is financially, as well as 
academically, one of the soundest 
universities in this country," Dr. 
J. Jefferson Bennett, Vice-Chancel- 
lor and President of the University, 
told the Alumni Council meeting

Dr. Bennett had announced his 
intention of leaving the office 
which he has held for six years, 
on June 30, and this was his last 
address to the Council, composed 
of class leaders and club presidents. 
He had cited frustrations in coping 
with deficits as contributing to his 
decision to resign and allow fresh 
eyes to review Sewanee 's needs. 
The budget for 1977-78 submitted 
by his administration and approved 
by the regents in April comes close 
to balancing. 

"Enrollment, a grievous prob- 
lem for so many of our sister 
colleges," Dr. Bennett said, "con- 
tinues at capacity. We have a 
physical plant which needs practi- 
cally no expansion with a replace- 
ment value for insurance purposes 
of $34,000,000 and an endowment 
with a market value of $25,000,000. 

"Far more important and re- 
assuring is what we call our living 
endowment," the Vice-Chancellor 
stressed. "We have 12,000 alumni 
who are just beginning to be edu- 
cated to the need for annual giving. 
We have 509,000 Episcopalians in 
our owning dioceses, heirs of our 
founders, and are only now getting 
under way to reach them with a full- 
time director of church relations. 

"The annual earnings of this 
living endowment— that is, the gifts 
to our Million Dollar Program of 
the people I have enumerated— have 
been growing year by year and have 
doubled in the last five years, ex- 
ceeding a million dollars a year in 
the last two." 

Dr. Bennett concluded, "Against 
this all-but-unparalleled strength, 
deficits during a period of depressed 
stock market conditions, however

retired in March as administrator 
of Emerald-Hodgson Hospital, and 
Dr. Russell Leonard, University 
health officer, has been serving as 
interim administrator without com-

administrator is under way. 

To Col. Powell had fallen the 
painful duty of laying off a number 
of people from the hospital staff, 
a move recommended by pro- 
fessional consultants and approved 
by the hospital board. The staff was 
judged excessive for the current 
occupancy rate— as much as twice 
the staff hours per patient in the 
nursing department necessary for 
the average census. In an unrelated

Mr. Marsh, who came to the 
University as provost in August, 
1973, will remain at the University 
as professor of English during two 
sabbatical leaves from that depart- 
ment next year. 

"I entered full-time administra- 
tive work in 1959," he said, "and 
I will give up twenty-four-hour 
duty with no great sense of loss. 
The four years I have spent working 
with Dr. Bennett have been among 
the most rewarding of my profes- 
sional life. He is a rare combination 
of wisdom and shrewdness, decisive- 
ness and humaneness, tough- 
mindedness and Christian concern." 
The provost came to Sewanee 
from Centenary College, where he 
had been dean. He has also held 
administrative posts at Rice Univer- 
sity and Muhlenberg College and 
was on the English faculty of the 
University of Kansas, Kansas State 
University and Rice. He was a 
Rhodes Scholar from the Univer- 
sity of Kansas and earned three 
graduate degrees from Oxford Uni- 
versity. He has contributed a num- 
ber of articles on English literature 
to scholarly journals. 

At Sewanee he has taught 
courses in Renaissance English, 
Anglo-Saxon and freshman English 
in addition to his administrative 
tasks. He has been vice-chairman of 
the board of directors of Emerald- 
Hodgson Hospital, the Sewanee 
Community Council, and the Uni- 
versity lease committee. He is 
president of the Hudson Stuck— 
Sewanee branch of the English- 
Speaking Union. 

He has been in much demand

Dr. Leonard has been engaged 
for some time in efforts to attract 
additional physicians to practice 
here, and foresees a time when the 
hospital will need to expand its 
staff again. 

The father of two alumni and a 
current student, Dr. Leonard has 
his MD. from Northwestern Medical 
School in Chicago and did a surgical 
residency at Memorial Hospital in 
Houston and a thoracic preceptor- 
ship under Drs. Barkley and Dailey 
in Houston. He is board-certified 
in both general and thoracic surgery 
and has had administrative experi- 
ence as acting superintendent of the 
East Texas Tuberculosis Sanatorium 
in Tyler, Texas. He was chief of the 
surgery section of the Anniston 
Memorial Hospital in Anniston, 
Alabama, and president of the Cal- 
houn Medical Society. 

Col. Powell had been adminis- 
trator of Emerald-Hodgson Hos- 
pital since 1966. He was pro- 
fessor of air science at the Uni- 
versity from 1958 to 1962, and was 
invited by Provost Gaston Bruton 
to return to the hospital position 
when Melvin Southwick retired. In 
the interim Col. Powell was advisor 
to Staff College for the Uraguayan 
government in Montevideo. He 
studied hospital administration at 
the University of Alabama and di- 
rected the Sewanee operation with- 
out loss for five years (1970-74)— 
indeed, with surpluses totaling 
$100,000 for the period. He points 
out that even with the $80,000 
deficit for 1975-76 the hospital 
provided medical care for students 
and community at an average cost 
to the University of only $6,000 
a year during the ten-year span. He 
worked with the architect to bring 
into being a model small hospital 
and effected the move into it 
without a break in service. 

All this took its toll. "I worked 
about 358 days a year, day and 
night," Col. Powell recalls, "but I 
have no complaint. I have always 
been grateful for the opportunity 
to come back to Sewanee." 

He and his wife, Marilyn, have 
built a home on the bluff at Rattle- 
snake Spring and will continue to 
live there. She is a full-time student 
in the College, heads the Commun- 
ity Action Committee and is a 
member of the Tennessee Bishop 
and Council. They are the parents

Charles Edward Cheston, now pro- 
fessor emeritus of forestry, was 
bom in Princeton, New Jersey, in 
1911. He is a graduate of Syracuse 
University and did his postgraduate 
work in forestry at Yale University 
and the University of Michigan. 

He came to Sewanee after years 
with the U. S. Forest Service, the 
National Park Service and the New 
Jersey department of conservation 
and development. Since September 
of 1942 he has been professor of 
forestry and engineering at the 
University of the South. 

He is a licensed surveyor, and 
has made many maps, including 
a topographical map of the entire 
University domain drawn on a scale 
of four hundred feet to the inch 
and showing every twenty-foot 
change of elevation. 

He was appointed to the 
Tennessee Conservation Commis- 
sion three times by two governors. 
He has been president of the Ten- 
nessee Foresters Association as well 
as its secretary for many years, 
chairman of the Society of Ameri- 
can Foresters Kentucky-Tennessee 
section, and a member of the 
Council of Forest School Execu- 

For ten years he was the Uni- 
versity's golf coach, with a winning 
collegiate team for five of those 
years. He also served as athletic 
director for a semester. 

Most of his accomplishments at 
Sewanee are so identified with 
those of his department, now also 
retired in its original form, that we 
have reserved them for a separate 
article below. 

Pickering Was Late Bloomer 

Dr. A. Timothy Pickering, pro- 
fessor emeritus of Spanish, came 
late and brilliantly to academic 
life. A member of a Depression-hit 
family, he did not enter college 
until he was thirty years old. At 
that time, he was in a civil service 
job at Columbus, Ohio, and took 
advantage of the proximity of 
Ohio State University to take 
courses at night. Becoming caught 
up in the endeavor, he quit his job 

and worked in an aircraft factory 
at night to take courses during the 
day. He finished in three years, 
then went on for the master's and 
the Ph.D., supporting himself vari- 
ously as a teaching assistant, waiter, 
museum employee. He taught at 
Wabash College in Indiana before 
coming to Sewanee in 1951, rising 
soon after to full professor and 
chairman of the Spanish depart- 

A precise gardener, he is also a 
ham radio operator. A few years 
ago he began to study Russian by 
himself and now reads Russian 
literature for pleasure. 

He is very tall and spare, and 
so is his biography. Few people 
have ever allowed so little infor- 
mation to seep into their files. 
Pressed for details, he says, "I 
have never done more than my 
duty. The most you can say about 
me is that I was never caught in a 
felony. I have never written a book, 
and what articles I have had in 
scholarly journals strike me as 
insignificant and I can't remember 
either their titles or those of the 

However, his one-time major 
student Joseph R. Jones, C'56, 


who taught at Sewanee for a year 
and is now professor of Spanish 
and director of graduate studies 
for the department of Spanish and 
Italian at the University of Ken- 
tucky, Lexington, says of him: 
"There are two things that stand 
out in my mind about Tim Picker- 
ing. First, his exceptionally high 
standards of performance, which he 
requires of himself as well as every- 
body else. I never knew him to 
come to class unprepared even 
though he had been over the 
material a thousand times. The 
second quality is his infinite pa- 
tience, not only with students but 
in his preparation. He would go 
through mountains of material to 
find exactly the right things. He 
never wasted a student's time. 
And even though he is very quiet, 
he has a marvelous sense of humor 
that made all that work tolerable. 
—I have boundless admiration for 
him. He is one of the best teachers 
I ever had." 

A colleague characterizes him 
as "entirely honest and entirely 
kind.— How many are there?"

Dozens of students and former 
students of Charles Cheston, retir- 
ing head of the forestry department, 
turned up at the forestry cabin on 
May 14 to honor him with a picnic 
and loggers' field day. 

Students worked hard setting 
up for the contests, manning the 
registration table, running a shuttle 
service from the parking area, and 
trucking in food and beer. Several 
alumni were heard to remark, "We 
should do this every year for a 
commencement party!" 

Alumni beat the students 
at woodchopping, thanks to the 
sizzling axes of Craig Sinclair and 
Jimmy Green, and at crosscut saw- 
ing. Students won at canoe racing, 
log throwing, tree felling, and den- 
drology (alumni were rusty on 
Latin names). Alumni won at com- 
pass and pacing. (Students get lost 
in the woods more often?) Students 
also won the tug of war, and the

distance competition 

At the end of the afternoon, 
the students named the forestry 
cabin in Cheston's honor, and the 
alumni presented him with a 
Browning automatic shotgun to 
use in his retirement time, setting 
off a last bit of horseplay as the 
sun sank in the west.

New Directions for Forestry 

With the retirement this spring 
of Charles Edward Cheston, Annie 
B. Snowden professor of forestry, 
that distinguished fifty-four-year- 
old department will take a new tack. 
To be renamed the department of 
natural resources, it will include a 
geologist (bringing a long-hoped-for 
discipline to the curriculum) to 
replace Mr. Cheston and will have 
a basic science orientation rather 
than a professional emphasis. Stu- 
dents wishing to pursue a career in 
forestry will be guided onto a 3-2 
track, similar to the one now in 
effect for engineering. That is, the 
student will spend three years at 
Sewanee and two years at a gradu- 
ate school of forestry for a combined 
liberal arts and forestry degree. 
General courses in forestry (forest 
ecology, for instance) will continue 
to be offered, but those of a more 
specialized professional nature (e.g. 
forest management) will be dropped. 

Dean Puckette believes this to 
be more consonant with the liberal 
arts framework of the College, and 
fairer to future students. While the 
Sewanee department has produced 
many outstanding foresters and its 
graduates have been welcomed by 
people familiar with its work, the 
dean believes that the world is 
becoming more credentials-minded. 
The department has never been 
large enough for full accreditation. 

"A Miracle Wrought" 

Since the arrival in 1942 of 
Charles Cheston, a man of phenom- 
enal energy, imagination and drive, 
he and his department of forestry 
have changed the face of Sewanee 
and in a very real way, of Tennessee. 

The Sewanee Forest, A Demon- 
stration of Multiple Use, a publica- 
tion of the University with two 
government agencies in 1966, noted : 
"When a 8,220-acre forested site 
was acquired for the University of 
the South in 1857 forest condi- 
tions throughout the Cumberland 
Plateau were impaired by indiscrim- 
inate cutting, woods burning, and 
livestock grazing. Forest stands 
were highly defective and low in 
volume." A government report in 
1899 said: "Coniferous trees are 
entirely absent. Excepting white 
oak and yellow poplar, most of the 
trees on the plateau have sprung up 
from the stump and not from seeds, 
in consequence of fires which must 
have raged on the plateau since 
many decades of years with uncon- 
trolled and uncontrollable force. . . . 
Most of the trees now standing are 
fit only for firewood, for railroad 
ties, and, as far as chestnut oak is 
concerned, for tanning purposes." 
From these sad beginnings, in 1952 
the Nashville Tennessean Magazine 
observed "... a miracle wrought in 
the Sewanee domain, where lessons 
of conservation are taught. . . .Here 
is to be found some of the finest 
timber in Tennessee." 

Sixteen lak> 

The rich forest we know now, 
as integral a part of Sewanee 's 
physical identity as its sandstone 
buildings; its sixteen lakes and 
wildlife preserves, its deer herd, 
2,000 additional acres bringing it 
up to its complement of nearly 
10,000, all reflect Mr. Cheston's 
efforts. Two million trees were 
planted under his direction. Tim- 
ber bringing in well over a quarter 
of a million dollars was carefully 
selected and cut under the princi- 
ples of forest management. 

Mr. Cheston was a vigorous 
pioneer of the doctrine that lum 
bering and good forestry are mu- 
tually supportive, and the Univer- 
sity forest in his time has been 
regarded as a model of forest 
management, and has repeatedly 
been the subject of official study. 
He has held numerous conferences 
and workshops for tree farmers 
and lumbermen and has attracted 
gifts for the forestry department 
in the neighborhood of half a 
million dollars from grateful sup- 

Mr. Cheston is largely respon- 
sible for seeing to it that the 
community has an adequate water 
supply. His engineering, fund- 
raising, vision and persistence 
brought about the sixteen lakes 
that keep Sewanee alive and do so 
much to make that life pleasant. 
One earlier attempt at a pond had 
given rise to an oft-repeated rhyme 
("Guerry's tank— it sank") and 
discouraged further efforts. The 
eleventh of the lakes, Lake Cheston, 
was named in his honor. 

Forty-one Majors 

The forested campus has been 
managed for conservation and 
timber harvest since 1898, when a 
contract for U. S. Forest Service 
advisory management was con- 
cluded with Gifford Pinchot, then 
head U. S. Forester. A department 
of forestry was initiated in 1923 
with George Garrett, later head of 
forestry at Yale. He was followed 
by two foresters and two botanists 
before Charles Cheston came in 
1942. Cheston added two men. For 
twenty years these have been the 
same two, Henry Wilds Smith and 

Idlife preserves . 

tledge. Black Star 

Charles Baird. A forestry major was 
instituted, requiring (with few and 
slight modifications) the same 
liberal arts courses as the other 
majors. From a beginning of two 
major students, the department 
now has forty-one. 

Other stand-out achievements 
of Cheston's administration have 
been the construction of the 
Snowden Forestry Building in 1962 
and the bringing in, next door, of a 
U. S. Forestry research station, 
greatly enhancing the instructional 
resources of the students and the 
function of the domain as a model 
of silviculture for the area. It was 
on Cheston's recommendations and 
active political follow-through that 
the station was established. 

Gifts from thirty-one lumber 
companies made possible the panel- 
ing of rooms and corridors in the 
Snowden Building in twenty-eight 
different woods. Capital gifts of 
$150,000 went into the construc- 
tion. A collection of 7,000 wood 
samples, said to be the second 
largest in America, was another gift.

fish-fuddletree" and an assemblage 
of other wood artifacts, also gifts, 
have drawn tourists to the building's 
museum room as well as serving as 
teaching tools. 

When the first coeds entered 
the University in 1969, a number 
of them, rather to everyone's 
surprise, elected the discipline of 
forestry and planned careers on it. 
Actually, since the beginning, 
women and forestry have not been 
strangers. George Garrett's Patrol- 
men's News in 1925 had this nota- 
tion: "About fifty women fire 
fighters helping on the fire line 
this spring." And (in No. 21): 
"Mr. I. L. Maples (sic) is having 
his front porch painted. The work 
is being done by two fair ladies." 

A celebration in 1975 of fifty 
years of forestry at Sewanee drew 
thirty-one participants from nine 
states, many of them graduates 
of the department now in high 
places in the teaching and prac- 
tice of forestry. George Garrett, 
the first professor of forestry 
here, was an honored guest. 

Three quotations (source not 
given) which someone thought 
enough of to paste on the inside 
front cover of the forestry scrap- 
book tell much about the values 
that have been held among these 
encompassing contributors to the 
history of the University: 

"Giving is the secret of a 
healthy life. Not necessarily money, 
but whatever a man has of encour- 
agement and sympathy and under- 

"It is very easy to forgive others 
their mistakes; it takes more grit 
and gumption to forgive them for 
having witnessed your own." 

"Only those who have the 
patience to do simple things perfect- 
ly ever acquire the skill to do diffi- 
cult things easily." 

The department of natural 
resources has a firm line to hew to.

What 1,238 Alumni Think — Part II 

In questionnaires returned by College alumni a 
number of questions and a few misconceptions 
surfaced, which we now take the opportunity to 

Two alumni wanted to know how confirm- 
ations since mandatory chapel was dropped 
compare with those before. In giving us these 
figures, Chaplain Charles Kiblinger points out 
that confirmations nationwide have been in a 
steady decline for the past twenty years. 

At Sewanee, in the six years before 1970 
when chapel attendance was compulsory for 
graduation, fifty-three students from all three 
units were confirmed. For 1971-76 the figure 
was seventy-one. Perhaps of even greater interest 
is the number of communions taken in All 
Saints' Chapel. For the last years of mandatory 
chapel they averaged about 8,500 a year. In 
1973 there were 12,500; in 1974 there were 
15,750; in 1975 there were 16,500; and in 
1976 there were 18,000. Chaplain Kiblinger 
recalls that when he was an undergraduate 
fruitfully busy for another twenty in the sixties, "There was a good deal of apathy, 

resentment and hostility connected with chapel 

The outpouring of requests and 
suggestions could keep us 


attendance. Now all who are there, are there 
because they want to be, and there is active, 
lively participation." 

(Paragraph on falling credentials?) 

A number of respondents express confusion 
about the current dress code, commenting that 
photographs do not indicate the wearing of 
coats and ties that they remember. It is true that 
the code has been modified. The handbook 
currently states; '|Jn accordance with Sewanee 
tradition, men wear coats 'and ties and women 
wear skirts or dresses (except in inclement 
weather) to classes and Concert Series events." 

There were several inquiries about the 
plan to provide requirements for teacher's 
certificates. This is now operative (see March, 
1977 Sewanee News). 

"Whatever happened to the second college 
in the Oxford tradition?" one alumnus asked. 
The advisability of a multi-college system 
was examined in some depth by a committee 
of the 1974 Self-Study, and the following 
recommendation emerged: "We strongly re- 
commend that Sewanee not attempt to create 
one or more additional college units in the next 
ten years. Given the present size of the Uni- 
versity we feel that such a course is not feasible 
or desirable; but even were the University to 
expand (about which we have grave reservations), 
we would question the advisability of a multi- 
college system." 

One questionnaire response says, "I approve 
of financial aid in certain cases, but would like 
to know what percentage of Sewanee's budget 
is being utilized for this purpose." In 1975-76, 
the year referred to in the survey, $114,400 of 
unrestricted funds was allotted, or 1.2% of the 
total operating budget. In actuality only 
$44,599 was spent, or .47%. In the 1976-77 
budget the percentage was 1.6%. Projected for 
1977-78 is 1.1%. 

"I ask a question," another respondent 
writes. "Most colleges lower standards to 
minorities. I hope Sewanee doesn't." No, says 
Albert Gooch, director of admissions, it does 
not. While negative factors in the cultural 
backgrounds of all applicants are considered 
in weighing SAT scores, no one is admitted 
unless there is a reasonable expectation that 
he/she will pass. 

A recent graduate would like to know 
"where the notion of the 'hidden tuition' 
came from. Sewanee is the only school that 
I've heard of that has this, and most schools 
are cheaper than Sewanee with no hidden 
means of support." Wrong. Tuition pays the 
full cost at practically no reputable institution 
of higher education. Taxes pay most of it at 
publicly supported colleges and universities. 
Private ones make up the difference from 
gifts. At Vanderbilt tuition covers about a third 
of the cost. At Amherst, Bowdoin and David- 
son, colleges roughly comparable in size and 
objectives, the proportion is about the same 
as Sewanee's— half and half. 

An alumnus of the '40s says, "The curricu- 
lum needs further enrichment: sociology, 
Italian, Russian." Anthropology, which may 
be considered the basic discipline for sociology, 
is taught. So is Italian, and there is a major- 
offering department of Russian. 

A man inquires about "John Patton's 
(janitor at Hoffman) asthma. Hope he has 

We have a direct response to this. "Dear 
alumnus: I am very grateful for your concern. 
My health has not improved very much, but I 
have managed to stay out of the hospital the 
latter part of '76 and the first part of '77. That 
is a blessing. I hope my progress will continue. 
I would like very much to hear from you 
whoever you are. Very sincerely, John Patton.' 

One respondent objects to "the large alio 
cation of funds to St. Andrew's and SMA." St 
Andrew's has never been a part of the Univer 
sity and has not received any of its funds, and 
SMA is no longer SMA (it is now the Sewanee 
Academy). It is the oldest of the University's 
three units, and the corporation has always seen 
its mandate from the Episcopal Church for 
secondary education at the Academy to be as 
compelling as that for higher education in the 
College and the School of Theology. 

The two writers who objected to Sewanee's 
not being coeducational and to its use of 
"graduate students to teach seminar courses 
or independent study" are also on infirm ground, 
as is the man who deplores athletic scholarships. 
Swiss seaports, all. 

We were unable to accommodate a few 
requests— such as one for a catalog— because 
there were no names on the survey forms, 
and these were separated from the envelopes and 
other material before examination to preserve 
anonymity for those desiring it. 

The editors of this magazine naturally had a 
strong interest in the response to item 18, "I 
would like to have more news from Sewanee 
on these topics:" The outpouring of requests 
and suggestions could keep us fruitfully busy 
for another twenty years. A good deal of stimu- 
lation has already occurred and has affected the 
contents of recent issues of the magazine and 
other communications with alumni. 

Most frequent requests (duly noted) are for 
more pictures, more news of faculty, classmates, 
current students and sports. On the other hand, 
speaking for a small but vocal minority, is one 
man: "New courses, statistics as to academic 
standing of college, generally a Sewanee News 
that gives scholarship some play amidst its 
concern with sports, solicitations and stuffed 

Herewith a cross-section : 
"From time to time I see things by Sewanee 
people in magazines. For example, I've noted 
contributions by S. Bates, B. Dunlap and R. 
Tillinghast in the New Republic. Perhaps the 
Sewanee News could alert us to such." Please 
tell us, and we'll be glad to pass it along. "Please 
do not list papers in scholarly journals." Why 

"Alumni news, listing of fraternity member- 
ship where alumni are mentioned." 

"Are current high school graduates (nation- 
wide and Sewanee applicant-acceptant-matri- 
culant) better prepared or more poorly pre- 

"News of student, faculty and alumni 
achievements in the world of literature and 
ideas. More news of what goes on in the class- 
room. If you have professors who serve as 
intellectual yeast, publish more of their ideas 
and lectures for the alumni. Our professional 
lives may call for academic retreading once in a 
while, but professional seminars don't give us 
what a Sewanee refresher would!" Sounds like 
a prime candidate for the Alumni Summer 

"The admissions program and how the 
admissions counselors operate to recruit 
students for the University." 

"Why some full professors have to teach 
twelve hours and not just nine. What are the 
salaries for instructors and assistant professors? " 
"Seven-eighths of the news from Sewanee 
asks for money. Fine and legitimate, but needs 
leavening with some of the ferment one re- 
members, not the saccharine alumni-ese of 
the other one-eighth." 
"Just more news." 

"I enjoy the news as it comes and costs do 

prevent too elaborate a report to alumni." 

"Use and management of the University

tradition, and how an institution blessed with 

good holdings handles them should be of more 

than casual interest to us all." (Smokejumper)

are being spent under the current budget." 

"Endowment investments." 

"Are the professors' salaries competitive?"

"Controversies on campus." 
"Financial aid and scholarships. Who gets 
them and how?" 

"More financial data. Have seen only one 
corporate annual report for the University in 
twenty years." 

"Factual articles by the faculty (or students) 
on straightforward Sewanee topics such as 
geology of the area, history, biography, archi- 
tecture, etc. No one, for example, has ever 
written a good-humored, expository account of 
the neo-gothic mode in Sewanee and its impli- 
cations. People are FOR or AGAINST." 

"The fishing— I did a lot when I was there. 
The forestry department, especially Dr. Smith, 
my favorite person at Sewanee." 

"The components of the budget and how 
it compares to other liberal arts institutions 
of the same caliber as Sewanee." 

"I would like to see courses required for 
all freshmen in expository writing (maybe 

English majors could help grade papers). An 
invaluable skill needed especially for today's 
high school graduates." 

"Schedules of sports activities and cultural 
events. Information on alumni privileges in 
regard to use of University facilities-tennis 
courts, gym, golf course, etc." (Alumni may 
use all these facilities. There is a special dis- 
count at special times of the year, such as 
Commencement, alumni and trustees' meet- 
ings, etc., and at other times the regular 
nominal fee is charged.) 

Several alumni express an interest in the 
current occupations of their fellows. One asks 
specifically about the occupational fate of 
70s graduates in their tight job market. The 
eagerly awaited alumni directory will provide 
a comprehensive answer; meanwhile, since one 
of the survey questions concerned occupation, 
we have tabulated this information from those 
who furnished it.

James N. Lowe, Chairman 
Premedical Advisory Committee 

This yeaf nineteen Sewanee 
seniors are applying to medical and 
dental schools. While Sewanee con- 
tinues to offer its premedical stu- 
dents a broad libera] arts education 
together with rigorous training in 
the sciences, many changes have 
occurred in the advising system for 
these students and in the way in 
which we recommend students. 
This is a report to the alumni on 
changes 1 have seen in eight years 
on the Premedical Advisory Com- 
mittee including three years as 
committee chairman. 

Sewanee has had a long history 
of association with medical educa- 
tion. At one time, it even hail a 
medical college. Many doctors in- 
cluding many current faculty mem- 
bers of medical schools received 
their undergraduate education at 
Sewanee. This report is the latest 
chapter in a long and colorful story. 

What kind of job is Sewanee 
doing now? What happens to her 
students who apply to medical 
school? How does the Premedical 
Advisory Committee at Sewanee 
evaluate applicants? Or, for many 
of the readers, the question may be 
"How have things changed since I, 
or a close friend, was a part of the 
program?" Dramatic changes in 
medical school education and ad- 
missions have occurred in the 
twelve years I have taught at 
Sewanee. Sewanee has responded to 
these changes. Pride in this year's 
senior premedical and predental 
students and in the time, care and 
concern shown by the seven faculty 
members on the committee prompt 
me to think that we at Sewanee 
deserve to brag a bit. 

Beginning in the late 1960s, 
admission to medical school became 
much more competitive. The num- 
ber of applicants jumped rapidly 
while the number of available 
places grew slowly. Two major 
changes in admissions policies 
occurred. Pressed by an abundant 
supply of qualified students and by 
changes in medicine itself, medical 
schools selected students with even 
higher grade-point averages for 
increasingly demanding curricula. 
They then became intensely aware 
that GPAs and test scores were not 
good predictors for performance in 
the clinical years or in medical prac- 
tice. Qualities of the physician such 

as sensitivity and compassion have 
continued to play an important 
part in the outcome of an illness. 

However, given the very large 
number of applicants (5,400 appli- 
cants for 83 places at Vanderbilt 
in 1975; 820 in state applicants 
for 204 places at Tennessee), it 
became increasingly difficult for 
medical schools to look at personal 
qualities important for success in 
medicine. Admissions committees 
asked the undergraduate institutions 
for more help both in realistic ad- 
vising of premedical students and in 
trying to assess the total person 
when writing letters of recommen- 

Sewanee 's response centered in 
a faculty committee, the Premedical 
Advisory Committee. Under Charles 
Foreman the committee evaluation 
became recognized here and at medi- 
cal schools as the most important 
letter of recommendation. A stand- 
ard was needed. One admissions 

director commented, "Every stu- 
dent can find three faculty mem- 
bers to recommend him highly, 
and three who would not." 

The committee letter seeks to 
describe the student, commenting 
on both strengths and weaknesses. 
"Help the student put his best foot 
forward for the interview," sug- 
gested another admissions director. 
It is a candid letter written in the 
belief that knowing a student 
better may help both our student 
and the school to which he is 
applying. The committee also gives 
each student an overall evaluation. 
The categories are: "highly recom- 
mended," "recommended with 
confidence," "recommended," 

"recommended with reservations" 
and "not recommended." When a 
student is recommended with reser- 
vations, these reservations are de- 
scribed in the letter and additional 
sources of evidence for further 
evaluation are suggested. For ex- 
ample, a student who performed 

badly in his first three semesters 
of college may be doing much 
better at the time he applies. The 
committee may still have some 
reservations about that student's 
ability to maintain his good per- 
formance and may suggest a close 
look at the first semester's work 
during the senior year. A cover 
letter is also sent. It describes the 
evaluation process and gives the 
percentages of students of earlier 
years placed in each category. 
The nature of the committee 
changed as well as its procedure. 
The committee was expanded when 
Dr. Foreman became chairman. Its 
composition shifted toward the 
humanities when I became chair- 
man. This year's members are 
David Camp (chemistry), Henrietta 
Croom (biology), Mary L. Cushman 
(education and dean of women), 
Jack Lorenz (physics), Gerald Smith 
(religion), Edwin Stirling (English) 
and James Lowe (chemistry). As a 
measure of commitment to the 

work of the committee, each of the 
four members who will be on leave 
next year chooses his own replace- 
ment. We sought to continue a 
broad-based committee whose 
members bring together a wide 
variety of concerns yet can listen 
to one another and be willing to 
modify our judgments. 

This year, each senior had an 
individual interview with every 
member of the committee. These 
interviews lasted from thirty 
minutes to over an hour. The 
committee then held a series of 
evaluation sessions. We discussed 
strengths and weaknesses of each 
applicant, then sought to arrive 

Ogden Robertson 

at an overall impression of the 
student. Letter writers were 
assigned. Each letter was then 
read (and modified) by two other 
committee members before it was 
mailed. Much time was invested in 
this process. In addition to trying 
to give our students a careful 
evaluation, we gave them an oppor- 
tunity to express their views in an 
interview situation on a variety of 
topics related to medicine. 

What are the results? During 
the seven years 1970-1976, the 
percentage of applicants nation- 
wide who were admitted to medical 
school dropped from about 45% to 
near 35%. On the average, about 
four in ten applicants were admit- 
ted. During the same period, fifty- 
three of our seventy-seven appli- 
cants were admitted to the study of 
medicine: forty -seven to medicine, 
five to dentistry and one to osteo- 
pathy. (The data for Sewanee is not 
directly comparable. It includes all 
graduates who applied to medical 
or dental school including a few 
students not premeds as under- 
graduates who later applied to 
medical school. Some students 
reapplied after either additional 
work or study for one or more 
years before being admitted.) We 
placed 69% of our students, almost 
seven of ten, during this competi- 
tive period. 

Sewanee graduates of the past 
few years are now studying medi- 
cine in private schools (Creighton, 
Emory, Tulane, Vanderbilt, and 
Washington) and at state medical 
schools in Alabama, California, 

Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, Missis- 
sippi, Tennessee, and Texas. As of 
April 6 of this year, fourteen of 
nineteen seniors had been admitted. 
(Nationally, about nine of twenty 
seniors were admitted.) Included in 
the nineteen applicants are three 
black students and two women. 

We should expect Sewanee to 
do a good job of premedical edu- 
cation. We admit many good stu- 
dents. A broad liberal arts educa- 
tion, an atmosphere of personal 
respect and integrity, symbolized 
by the honor code, and religious 
concerns of many students and 
faculty are strengths of this college. 
There is still another advantage I 
stress to prospective students. Se- 
wanee premedical students take 
many courses together. They know 
one another and help one another. 
Since they come from many states, 
they can consider their classmates 
as friends and colleagues rather 
than rivals for the same places in 
a medical school class. 

I have spoken repeatedly of a 
premedical program, yet we do not 
have a premedical major. Certain 
courses designated by medical 
schools are required of all premedi- 
cal students. In addition, all take 
additional advanced biology or 
chemistry courses. Many major in 
biology or chemistry, but we also 
have English, physics, political 
science, and religion majors in 
medical schools. 

Students should and do major 
in a discipline they like— after all, , 
they may not enter medicine. We 
urge students to prepare for an 
alternate career even as they pre- 
pare for medicine. "If a student 
is not mature enough to prepare 
for an alternate career, he is not 
mature enough to be a physician," 
states another admissions officer. 

What can alumni do to help 
the premedical program at Sewa- 
nee? A few may be able to help 
our students who seek to work at 
a hospital in the summer. Many of 
you might aid in bringing to Se- 
wanee qualified students with 
interest in medical careers. Ulti- 
mately, we are known to medical 
colleges by the students we send 
them. Sewanee needs to be grad- 
uating at least a dozen premedical 
students a year to keep close con- 
tacts with the many medical 
schools our students attend. We 
enjoy working with our premed- 
ical students. Student and faculty 
morale is high. We could continue 
to do a good job with still more

Florida Mission History 

The Sound of Bells; The Episcopal 
Church in South Florida, 1892-1969. By 
Joseph D. Cushman, Jr. Gainesville: 
University Presses of Florida, 1976. 378 
pp. $15.00. 

This volume is the successor to 
Dr. Cushman 's A Goodly Heritage: 
The Episcopal Church in Florida, 
1821-1892 (Gainesville: University 
of Florida Press, 1965), which was 
his Ph.D. dissertation done at Flor- 
ida State University in 1962. A 
Goodly Heritage traces the history 
of the Diocese of Florida from 
the beginnings of the Episcopal 
Church until the division and 
creation of the missionary juris- 
diction of Southern Florida. 

The Sound of Bells (from hear- 
ing the mission bells toll) is the 
story of the missionary jurisdic- 
tion of Southern Florida through 
the creation of the Diocese of 
South Florida (1922) to the divi- 
sion of this Diocese in 1969 into 
the Dioceses of Central Florida 
(Bishop William H. Folwell), South- 
east Florida (Bishop James L. 
Duncan) and Southwest Florida 
(Bishop E. Paul Haynes). This need 
to subdivide illustrates the growth 
of the Episcopal Church in Florida. 

There has been much criticism 
of denominational history writing 
in the United States and of regional 
denominational histories that treat 
dioceses, synods, presbyteries and 
other jurisdictions. Frequently 
these histories are no more than 
chronicles, facte and dates, with 
no analysis and interpretation. 
Often they are written without 
regard to the larger context and 
environment. Professor Cushman 
does a good job of interpretation 
and of showing the broader context. 

A diocesan history takes on 
flesh in the lives of its clergy and 
bishops. Cushman does well in 
treating the diocese's four bishops: 
William Crane Gray (1892-1914), 
Cameron Mann (1914-1932), who 
was also a poet, John Durham Wing 
(1932-1950), and Henry Irving 
Louttit (1951-1969). It might be of 
Sewanee interest that Bishop 
William C. Gray's brother, Charles 
Mcllvaine Gray, pp. 90, 102, 144, 
357, was the first student of the 
University of the South to be 
ordained: deacon, May 26, 1872; 
priest October 18, 1874. (There is 
some confusion in the text and the 
index between Charles M. Gray and 
Charles M. Gray II, the organist at 
St. Peter's Church, St. Petersburg.) 

One other minor criticism. In 
discussing Bishop Gray's theology, 
Cushman says: ". . . he regarded 
confirmation not merely as an act 
of renewing one's baptismal vows, 

something that man does for God; 
but as the bestowal of the gifts of 
the Holy Spirit, something that 
God does for man. Confirmation, 
then, was in its highest sense the 
ordination of the laity." Actually, 
the criticism is of Bishop Gray, 
for never have I, in my study of the 
Christian tradition, seen confirma- 
tion as ordination. Baptism has 
always been the ordination of the 
laity. A reference for the bishop's 
idea would have helped. 

This is a good diocesan history 
and should provide insight into the 
Episcopal Church in South Florida.

Scarbrough Poems 

"A large book of poems from a 
small press" is what Iris Press terms 
its publication of George Scar- 
brough: New and Selected Poems, 
1977. Allen Tate has said of Scar- 
brough (C'44): "In my opinion his 
is one of the few genuine poetic 
talents to appear in the South in 
the past generation. I hope his work 
gets the attention it deserves." And 
James Dickey: "George Scar- 
brough 's poems have carried him 
deep into the very heart of the 
Southern land. The medium is 
words, and on the superbly imagin- 
ative use of these, he has arrived 
at the deepest roots, beyond what 
could be imagined by anyone less 
than a true poet. Anyone who gives 
himself without reserve to George 
Scarbrough 's poems will find his 
life renewed." 

In a handsomely printed flyer 
the publisher says, "With George 
Scarbrough: New and Selected 
Poems Iris Press continues its 
policy of offering significant and 
readable literature in books de- 
signed by imaginative artists and 
produced with fine materials and 
care. Each of our books is one in a 
thousand copies." 

The book has 324 pages, is 
illustrated by drawings and a 
photographic essay by Faith Decker, 
and sells for $14.50, $9.95 paper- 
back. Both have sewn pages.

When one considers men who 
made Sewanee— and women too- 
one also thinks of families which 
made Sewanee. Among them— 
Kirby-Smith, yes; Cobbs, yes. But 
consider Guerry and related tribes 
They are mainly Scots, Huguenots 
French and British. Add an Irish 
man or two. The names, when cross 
checked against the Centennial 
Alumni Directory, are so formid 
able as to be frightening. LeGrand 
McBee (and don't you pronounce 
it any way but MACbee!), Capers 
Felder, Brailsford, DuBose, Moul 
trie, Ainslie, Sumner, Patten 
Vardry, Echols, Alexander, Duke 
Hunt, Dempsey, Baker, Brunson 
Williams, Perry, Hoke, Mikell— they 
are all there, Guerry-connected 

It's a joy for the amateur 
historian, or archivist, or genealo 
gist to savor the flavor of familiar 
names— great names— many of them 
more than familiar. One of them 
changed the reviewer's life. Others 
profoundly affected the career of 
the institution he cherishes, and 
others shared experiences most inti- 
mate. This review is not objective. 

The subject of this biography 
is one of three Episcopal prelates 
to die from gunshot: Leonidas 
Polk, Guerry, and Dillard Brown 
of Liberia, the, latter two by per- 
sons charitably called demented. 
The secretary of Bishop Guerry 
described to me her horror as 
she heard in the adjoining office 
the rising voice of the racist priest 
threatening his bishop, known in 
his day as a Christian liberal— who 
among other acts "adopted" a 
failing Black Baptist college (1922) 
known as Voorhees. 

This book is a guided tour 
through the powerful intellect of 

a man always willing to grapple 
with the most basic and difficult 
issues of his time. Bishop Guerry 
was a man of profound faith who 
willingly came to grips with doubt. 
He did not dodge the thorny prob- 
lems of his Southland under Re- 
construction, the Negro in the 
Church, the Miracles, divorce, the 
Sacraments, healing. He faced them 
all in cogent sermons selected by a 
discriminating editor. From today's 
perspectives, perhaps his great in- 
sight was ecumenism, which in his 
time was called "Church unity." No 
Sewanee student of his time— or 
a score of years before or after- 
failed to be awed by (and marked 
for life by) William Porcher DuBose. 
Guerry 's tribute to DuBose satur- 
ates the reader. Guerry projects 
Sewanee 's greatest teacher. 

Guerry stood for national con- 
cepts at a time when the regional 
were sentimentally so attractive. 
He favored revision of the 1922 
Prayer Book, saying in effect, "Pre- 
serve the faith and doctrine but 
adapt to new usages." Although he 
favored the "full Bishop with juris- 
diction" he went along with the 
experiment of Black suffragan 
bishops in a couple of dioceses. 
About authoritarianism he said, 
"There are no mysteries which 
cannot be investigated." 

One of the great vignettes of 
the Chaplain (later Bishop) Guerry 
home at Sewanee (father, mother, 
one daughter, four sons) is the 
account of the trauma of Ely 
Green, the half-white lad of nine 
who found comfort in that house 
at Sewanee after having been 
blasted as "nigger"— a term (to 
Sewanee 's credit) he had never 

Two complaints I lodge against 
my dear friend Edward, the "onlie 
begetter" of this book. Edward, the

And why, Edward, in your com-

to omit the wealthiest of all, the 
descendants of that McBee priest, 
who might have endowed the Uni-

something about them? Edward,

Church Mission Goals 

Realities and Visions: The Church's 
Mission Today. Edited by Furman C. 
Stough and Urban T. Holmes III. New 
York: Seabury/Crossroad, 1976. 188 pp. 

This is the third of three "mo- 
saic" volumes commissioned by 
Presiding Bishop John M. Allin, 
C'43, T'45, H'62. The first two, 
of which Dean Holmes was also 
co-editor, were To Be a Priest and 
Male and Female. 

Realities and Visions focuses on 
the directions its twenty-two con- 
tributors would like the Church's 
missionary efforts to take in the 
next decade. A review in the Living 
Church (January 30, 1977) by the 
Rev. John Baiz singles out the essay 
by the School of Theology's Dr. 
Charles Winters: "(He) writes pro- 
vocatively on 'Theological Educa- 
tion in the Next Decade,' placing 
great emphasis on theological edu- 
cation for the laity and continuing 
education for both laity and 
clergy." Bishop Stough, the co- 
editor, is C'51, T'55, and H'71. 

Teaching Series 

Dean Holmes is on the steering 
committee for the New Church's 
Teaching Series, the official teach- 
ing series of the Episcopal Church. 
The seven-volume publication will 
replace the present six-volume set 
in use for the last thirty years. 
The series is expected to be 
ready in 1978 and will contain 
two volumes co-authored by Se- 
wanee people. Dean Holmes is 
writing the one called "Christian 
Believing in the Contemporary 
World" with Madeleine L'Engle, 
and the Rev. Charles Winters, 
professor of dogmatic theology 
and director of the fast-growing 
theology by extension program, 
will be the author with Richard

Religious Treasure 

The University and All Saints' 
Chapel in particular are included 
in an unusual guide book, America's 
Religious Treasures, by Marion 
Rawson Vuilleumier with illustra- 
tions by Pierre DuPont Vuilleumier. 
The book, subtitled "A Spiritual 
Heritage Travel Guide," was pub- 
lished in 1976 by Harper and Row 
and is priced at $4.95 (paperback). 

On Ministry 

Ministry and Imagination by Urban T. 
Holmes III. New York: Seabury Press, 
1976. 279 pp. $10.95. 

John Westerhoff, associate profes- 
sor of religion and education at the 
Duke University Divinity School, 
reviewing Dean Holmes' book in 
The Living Light, the official 
education publication of the United 
States Catholic Conference, says: 
"Dean Holmes is, I'm convinced, 
the leading pastoral theologian in 
the church today; his book Ministry 
and Imagination the most signifi- 
cant contemporary work on the 
church's ministry. It is a rare contri- 
bution to both theory and practice 
—a scholar's and a practitioner's 
dream. If I were asked to name the 
one most influential book read 
during 1976, this would be it. 
Ministry and Imagination is a book 
the Christian church— Catholic and 
Protestant— needs. " 

Professor Westerhoff has made 
the book required reading for the 
basic course he is teaching at Ford- 
ham, Princeton, Toronto and Duke 

Liturgical Study 

Sanctifying Life, Time and Space: An 
Introduction to Liturgical Study by 
Marion J. Hatchett. New York: Seabury 
Press, 1976. ix + 215 pp. Cloth, $8.95. 

Louis Weil, writing in Worship— 
described as the most respected 
American periodical dealing with 
liturgy— says : "The qualities of 
Marion Hatchett 's introduction to 
liturgical study are manifold. Given 
the extraordinary quantity of litur- 
gical publication during the past 
decade, it is surprising how little 
material of this comprehensive and 
fundamental nature is available. . . . 
Dr. Hatchett has assembled a re- 
markable amount of data which 
will serve both to illuminate those 
who are beginning the study of the 
liturgy, and also to correct the 
often naive assumptions of those 
who too easily read back into the 
early ages of Christian history an 
understanding of liturgy and sacra- 
ments which reflects a much later 
period and perhaps even a period 
during which the essential meaning 
of these rites was lost or obscured. 
... As a professor of liturgy, the 
present reviewer can only rejoice 
that so much material has been 
made available in such a convenient 
form, for it will serve as a splendid 
point of departure in working with 
persons at the beginning of their 
preparation for the Church's

Is Taught 



ften people, some students, 
parents, write to me in- 
quiring whether a genuine education 
still is to be obtained somewhere or 
other in these United States. I reply that 
although there exists no perfect uni- 
versity or college, this being a bent 
world, nevertheless I can commend cer- 
tain departments and even certain in- 

For anybody desiring to study "Eng- 
lish literature at any level, I recom- 
mend that department at Vanderbilt 
University. Ever since the days oi the 
Fugitives and the Agrarians, Vander- 
bilt's professors of literature have been 
first-rate; and the department seems un- 
abashedly Christian, too. 

For politics and government, as dis- 
tinguished from computer-operation 
and nose-counting, I entertain a high 
opinion of the present departments at 
Georgetown University and Catholic 
University. Standards there are high, 
sound, and humane. 

For undergraduate study generally, 
certain colleges please me especially — 
for instance, the University of Dallas, 
Washington and Lee, William and 
Mary, Occidental College, the Univer- 
sity of the South — both because they 
are pleasant places and because the 
curriculum is not decadent. And there 
are new ones with a curriculum that 
seems innovative because it is so rooted 
in tradition — among them Thomas 
Aquinas College (Calabasas, Calif- 
ornia) and Cardinal Newman College 
(St. Louis). 

Sometimes it is wise to choose a col- 
lege simply because of the presence 
there of two or three especially able 
professors. If one is interested in his- 
tory, say, people worth studying under 
are Professor Roland Berthoff, at Wash- 
ington University, and Professor Paul 
Gottfried, at Rockford College (at 
which latter institution Professor Peter 
Slanlis, by the way, teaches English 

At the liberal-arts colleges on a hu- 

mane scale, undergraduates can ac- 
tually talk with professors — not merely 
with teaching assistants. In the field of 
political theory, Mr. Gerhart Niemeyer 
now is visiting professor at Hillsdale 
College, as well as teaching one course 
still at Notre Dame University. Hills- 
dale also is acquiring, as head of its de- 
partment of economics, Mr. Roger 
Freeman, long of the Hoover Institu- 
tion, one of the very best scholars in 
that field. Whatever one may think of 
Antio.h College generally, that institu- 
tion retains Mr. Louis Filler, certainly 
a lively and healthy influence in Amer- 
ican Studies. 

The Decampused Campus 

For those who would like to be de- 
campused altogether, there is Interna- 
tional College, with its office in Los 
Angeles. This unique recent creation 
arranges study throughout the world 
with well-known scholars, writers, art- 
ists, musicians, and the like; students 
live near their "tutors," or mentors, 
rather than in a teen-age ghetto called 
■ a dorm. 

For graduate studies in many fields, 
of course the famous long-established 
universities continue to offer splendid 
resources and distinguished professors 
— Harvard, Princeton, Yale, the Uni- 
versity of Chicago, the University of 
Michigan, and the rest. But undergrad- 
uate existence at such campuses — well, 
one might almost quote Hobbes on the 
condition of life for primitive man, 
"poor, nasty, brutish, and short." The 
humane scale was lost some time ago at 
such places; the undergraduates look 
sour and unhappy; often they would be 
more secure and find more moral com- 
panionship in the streets of Palermo or 
Fez. Don't go "where the action is," if 
you mean to improve your intellect. 

Most dismal of all, for any young 
person seeking genuine education and 
genuine academic community, is Behe- 
moth University: my collective term for- 
the swollen campus, perhaps once a 
land-grant college or a normal school, 
which offers all things (except wisdom 
and virtue) to all delayed adolescents. 
Its curriculum, cafeteria-style, is a 
mingling of pop culture and pseudo- 
vocationalism. Its abler professors 
would like to be just about anywhere 
else. Its students would encounter more 
virtue and elegance if they dwelt in 

some low brothel; but since most of 
them are present only for fun and 
games, that really doesn't much matter. 
Speaking of bordellos, Michigan 
State University, East- Lansing, now 
boasts a "porn queen" among its stu- 
dent body. She maintains a B-plus aver- 
age in physical education. This young 
lady transferred from Western Michi- 
gan University to East Lansing because 
she was offered the managership of an 
"adult" skin-flick cinema in Lansing; 
she has built up the volume of its busi- 
ness to $33,000 a month. Also she has 
bargain sidewalk sales of printed por- 
nography; and she has produced on her 
own, with capital from the Bahamas, a 
delightful film about gang rape, drawing 
her cast from the undergraduates of 
MSU. As yet, MSU doesn't grant 
theater-arts credit for participation in 
this young woman's undertakings, but 
there's a fresh possibility for attracting 
freshmen and freshwomen to the 
Friendly Campus. 

The Rape You Get . . . 

To parents and others who pay the 
tuition and fees, this exhortation, from 
the musical The Fantasticks: "The rape 
you get depends upon the price you 
pay." With few exceptions, cheap 
schooling produces cheap, and nasty, 
minds. Real-life rapes are more fre- 
quent than cinematographic rapes at 
MSU; much to the chagrin of the au- 
thorities, the student newspaper reports 
them and laments them. Yet the streets 
of East Lansing are safer than those of 
Ann Arbor, where some 16 attacks on 
women (officially reported ones, that 
is) occurred during October and No- 
vember alone. Once upon a time, stu- 
dents professed that their minds were 
ravished by learning; nowadays their 
bodies are violated by learners. 

The rape, I repeat, depends upon the 
price you pay. So I marvel at parents 
who may have three cars in the garage 
and six-figure accounts with stock- 
brokers and nevertheless dispatch Sweet 
Sue and Beaming Bill, their offspring, 
to Behemoth U — because the charges 
there are somewhat less than at Our 
Lady of the Sorrows or at Bruno-Ser- 
vetus University. At Behemoth U, if 
your body eludes the predators, still the 
lions (or the mice) will get your in- 
tellect. For the price of hi-fi equipment 
the child you save may be your own. □

"R^VieW ^ Age 85 

by Don Keck DuPree, C'73 

America's oldest continuing literary quarterly, 
the Sewanee Review, was founded in 1892 with 
the pledge that it would be "devoted to such 
topics of general Theology, Philosophy, History, 
and Literature as require fuller treatment than 
they usually receive in the popular magazines 
and less technical treatment than they receive 
in specialist publications." In the eighty -five 
years since, the Review has grown to interna- 
tional stature in the field of humane letters. Its 
first editor, William Peterfield Trent, left Se- 
wanee in 1900 for Columbia University, where 
he was a pioneer in promoting American litera- 
ture as an independent field of study. Trent was 
the first in a series of distinguished men of 
letters who have shaped Sewanee 's Review. 

Through the efforts of its early editors John 
Bell Henneman, John MacLaren McBryde, 
George Herbert Clarke (who began publishing 
verse) and William Skinkle Knickerbocker, the 
Review developed into a top-flight, nationally 
significant magazine of general knowledge. With 
the service of Andrew Lytle as managing editor 
in the early 1940s followed by Allen Tate as 
editor in the middle 1940s, the Review evolved 
from a forum of general humanities to the 
specifically literary magazine we know today. 

Under Tate's leadership the Review began to 
pay contributors, broaden the list of subscribers 
and seek out important material from new, un- 
published authors. Tate was able to move the 
Review into the void created by the discontinu- 
ation of the old Southern Review in 1942. 

In addition to the leading Fugitives, Tate 
attracted work from authors whose international 
renown extended the readership which the 
Review then had. No glance is ever complete, 
but those issues of 1944-46 included such 
authors as John Peale Bishop, T. S. Eliot, Caro- 
line Gordon, Robert Lowell, St.-John Perse, 
•Catherine Anne Porter, John Crowe Ransom, 
Dylan Thomas, Jacques Maritain, Malcolm 
Cowley and R. P. Blackmur. 

Successive editors have stressed the import- 
ance of Tate's accomplishments. It goes without 
saying that increasing the range and stature of 
contributions added to the prestige of the 
Magazine, and this was promoted in large 
neasure by the new policy of paying contribu- 
tors. As George Core, the Review's present 

editor, has remarked, "The magazine can't be 
run on charity." Although payment may not 
be great, paying for material puts the magazine 
on the same professional level as other widely 
circulated literary magazines. 

Following Tate, editors John Palmer (1946- 
1952) and Monroe Spears (1952-1961) contin- 
ued, consolidated and extended the program 
which had been solidly established in the middle 
40s. Advancing the program of critical coverage, 
from 1942 on the Review included many essays 
which are now recognized as landmarks in the 
field such as the collaborations by W. K. Wimsatt 
and Monroe C. Beardsley, "The Intentional 
Fallacy" (1946) and "The Affective Fallacy" 
(1949), and Joseph Frank's "Spatial Form in 
Modern Literature" (1945). 

Palmer left Sewanee for military service 
during the Korean War. Since that time, he 
has edited the distinguished Yale Review, a 
national quarterly of the general humanities. 
Spears is now Libbie Sheam Moody professor 
of English at Rice University. He is the author 
of the well-known Dionysus and the City: 
Modernism in Twentieth Century Poetry. The 
efforts of Palmer and Spears on behalf of 
sound criticism throughout their tenure with 
the Review will long be regarded as a highlight 
of post-war literary publishing. In speaking of 
Monroe Spears, George Core has said: "Mr. 
Spears strikes me as one of the best literary 
editors of the past three decades. His great 
achievement at the Sewanee Review has not 
been fully recognized." 

Late in 1961 novelist and critic Andrew 
Lytle returned as editor of the magazine. Under 
Lytle many contributors such as Kenneth 
Burke, Randall Jarrell, Madison Jones, Stephen 
Spender, Peter Taylor and Eudora Welty con- 
tinued to appear. Lytle also made a particular 
effort to find space for young unpublished 
writers whose careers the Review could foster. 
As a teacher of writing, Lytle was keenly aware 
of the problems the young writer faces. 

On Lytle's retirement in 1973, George 
Core, from the University of Georgia Press, 
became editor. In his initial editorial Core 
noted, "Over the last thirty years the Sewanee 
Review has evidenced a general editorial policy 
which has to some extent superseded the par- 
ticular interests of the editors involved. I intend 

Peterfield Trent 

to pursue this established commitment to 
humane letters in the Western world and to 
preserve the essential character of the magazine." 
Core has added stress to the review of 
current books. Some 200 or more new titles 
are reviewed annually in the short-review section 
of the magazine or included in the longer essay- 
reviews which have always been featured. In 
addition, fiction and poetry chronicles appear 
regularly. This breadth of coverage and the 
timeliness of reviews have brought the Review 
the added benefit of more paid advertising. 
Core continues to seek a broad range of 
writers, relying upon "regular contributors 
and a good mix of occasional contributors." 
Established critics such as Denis Donoghue 
and James M. Cox appear, together with some 
writers who are presented for the first time. 
Core notes that an editor "cannot depend 
upon the unsolicited material that the mail 
brings in"; he must have a good number of 
writers on whom he can rely. 

In recent years, individual issues of the 
Review have presented a definite focus pur- 
suing a particular body of material. The 
"Literature of Modem Ireland" issue (Winter 
1976) is an example. Core notes that his pur- 
pose behind special issues of this sort is an 
attempt to "edit, rather than merely assemble 
items between the covers." As with all editors, 
this conscious selection of material raises the 
problem of available space and the overall 
economy of the magazine. "I cannot accept 
everything that is suitable," Core notes. "After 
a special issue several good pieces always arrive 
which are certainly publishable but which 
cannot be accepted because their subjects 
have just been pursued." 

The current editorial policy allows for an 
average of one short story and about twelve 
pages of poetry per issue. "I read well over a 
hundred short stories for every one I accept," 
Core notes, "and I accept fewer than fifty 
poems for every ten thousand I receive." The 
fiction and poetry published continue to attract 
wide attention, as did Stephen Minot's story 
"A Passion for History" (Spring 1976), which 
was chosen for inclusion in Prize Stories 1977: 
The O. Henry Awards and The Best American 
Short Stories 1977. 

Some of the poets published in the last two 
years are A. R. Ammons, James Applewhite, 
Ben Belitt, Hayden Carruth, Malcolm Cowley, 
Roy Fuller, Seamus Heaney, Jean Farley, 
Thomas Kinsella, Howard Nemerov, Dabney 
Stuart, John Unterecker and Robert Penn 

Many readers have noted that in addition 
to its lively content the Review is physically 
attractive. Still produced in letterpress by the 
University Press, Review copy is consistently 
free of typographical and other inadvertent 
errors due to the zealous copyreading of manag- 
ing editor Mary Lucia Cornelius and editorial 
assistant Sara Ham. In an age of often less- 
than-attractive offset production, the Sewanee 
Review continues to please the discerning eye. 
Allen Tate once remarked that the regular 
reading of a literary quarterly is one good way 
for someone over twenty-one to continue his 
education. Unfortunately most people overlook 
the literary quarterlies in their post-collegiate 
magazine subscriptions. This author can cer- 
tainly recommend that at $7 a year the Sewanee 
Review provides good reading with the short 
story and verse in each issue as well as an oppor- 
tunity to share in the literary opinion of our age.

Clean Sweep 

Sewanee students turned out in 
great numbers on Earth Day (Wed- 
nesday, April 20) for the annual 
Help Day cleanup. 

Several fraternities had 100 
per cent of their membership 
working, as did two women's 
dormitories (Hunter and Hoffman). 
The lone sorority decided its 
members would work through their 
dorms. Each fraternity and dormi- 
tory contributed ten dollars and a 
further donation from the Sewanee 
Woman's Club made up prize 

First prize of $100 was won by 
Sigma Nu for their cleanup around 
the Sewanee Memorial Cross. The 
SN's cut brush from the view, 
mowed, raked, picked up trash, and 
in a surprise finish gave the Cross 
itself a fresh white paint job with 
the aid of rope work by a few 
intrepid members. 

Second prize of $50 was won 
by Chi Psi for rebuilding the trail 
between the Cross and Morgan's 
Steep, and Delta Kappa Epsilon for 
their cleanup of the Cowan Road 
approach to the campus. Third 
prize of $25 was won by Hunter 
Hall and Delta Tau Delta, who 
jointly cleaned up the airport 
road, filling four dumpsters and 
bagging enough trash to fill two 

Davidheiser Has Fulbright 

Dr. James Davidheiser, associate 
professor of German in the College, 
has a Fulbright grant to participate 
in a summer seminar in German 
studies for college and university 
professors at the University of 
Bonn. During five weeks in Bonn 
the grant recipients will attend 
sessions of the Bundestage, the 
West German parliament, will visit 
local communities and their govern- 
ing officials, study political parties 
in both West and East Germany and 
observe various other facets of 
German culture. In late July they 
will travel to Berlin as the guests of 
the German Academic Exchange 
Service (DAAD). Following an in- 
depth study of the Berlin question, 
the group will tour locations in 
West Germany for a week. 

This Fulbright program is ad- 
ministered by the Fulbright Com- 
mission in Bonn-Bad Godesberg and 
the U. S. Office of Education. 

Ebey Presents Research 
Dr. Sherwood Ebey, associate pro- 
fessor of mathematics, is co-author 
of a technical report published by 

In the Bag for Earth Day 

the Oak Ridge National Labora- 
tory (ORNL), entitled "Statistical 
Modeling of Adsorption Processes 
on Catalyst Surfaces: Preliminary 

Dr. Ebey did research for this 
paper while on sabbatical leave in 
1975-76, working with the depart- 
ment of mathematics and statistics 
research at ORNL. His co-authors 
are E. L. Fuller, Jr. and F. R. R. 
Uppuluri, staff members of ORNL. 

The work represents an inter- 
disciplinary approach to some prob- 
lems concerning catalytic chemical 
reactions that occur on the surface 
of a crystal. Dr. Ebey and his col- 
leagues studied the problems using 
theoretical mathematics, computer 
simulation, and the results of lab- 
oratory experiments. 

In addition to the publication 
of the technical report, this work 
was presented in a paper delivered 
to the fall regional meeting of the 
American Chemical Society. 

St. Luke's Historian 
Requests Materials 
The Rev. Don S. Armentrout is 
working on a history of the School 
of Theology and would appreciate 
any pictures or documents or any- 
thing else relating to his project. 
He will be glad to return any 
materials entrusted to him, or will 
place them in the Archives if the 
donor so desires. 

Oscar Winner Recalls Sewanee 
A cover feature on Louise Fletcher, 
actress (she won an Academy 
Award last year for her work in 
"One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest") 
sister of the Rev. John Fletcher, 
C'53, in the Chicago Tribune Maga- 
zine March 20, includes the follow- 
ing paragraphs (taking off from an 
earlier item in Newsweek): "The 
person in the Newsweek photo 
seemed to be a middle-aged woman 
revisiting a spirit of youthful 
freedom— the kind of spirit Fletcher 
once felt at the University of the 
South in Sewanee, Tenn. There, on 

brief and welcome respites from the 
All Saints Episcopal School for 
Young Women at Vicksburg, Miss., 
an unprosperous clergyman 's daugh- 
ter met aristocratic college class- 
mates of her brother. 

'My brother was three years 
ahead of me,' Fletcher recalls, 
smiling faintly at the memory. 
'Because of him I would meet all 
those adorable guys and be invited 
up for the weekend, and I would 
show up back at school on Monday 
morning feeling lousy. They were 
incredibly hilarious, long weekends 
when nobody ever went to sleep. 
We were Southern ladies and gentle- 
men being "grownup," and we 
would go up for the weekend in our 
best clothes and go to teas and hide 
that we were really drinking. 

'The best thing we ever drank 
was champagne on Sunday morning. 
You'd drink it with water, because 
someone said that if you did that 
you could stay drunk. I think most- 
ly they drank'— the faint smile be- 
comes more pronounced— 'swill. 
And things like Artillery Punch that 
some smart aleck from Baton Rouge 
or somewhere would cook up from 
deadly wood alcohol or something.' 
She sighs. 'I remember so affection- 
ately that time.' " 

Scott Doing Ski Manuals 
Jim Scott, Academy chemistry 
instructor and outdoor program 
director, will be flown to San Fran- 
cisco in June to help prepare man- 
uals for the national Nordic Patrol 
program. He has been appointed a 
mountaineering instructor by the 
National Ski Patrol, qualified to 
teach anywhere in the country. He 
will hold courses all over the South- 
east, including, he hopes, Sewanee.

Seminarians Observe 
Active Ministries 

Atlanta was host during the winter 
to twenty-four students from the 
School of Theology. The purpose 
of their visit was to observe and 
experience the variety of ministries 
being conducted in both the urban 
and suburban setting. 

The program was coordinated 
by the Rev. Peter Thomas at St. 
Luke's parish in downtown Atlanta, 

in cooperation with the field w , 
office at Sewanee. 

The seminarians viewed sue 
ministries as the soup kitchen bein 
operated at St. Luke's, the Salvatio 
Army, and other "street ministries 
For the latter part of their thre. 
day stay the students spent i 
time in various city and suburbj 
parishes learning of programs bein 
operated in those parishes.

Reasons Why Your Sons Should it

1. The location upon the Cum-

water, and bathed in fresh, bracing 
air, is the healthiest in the United 

2. The students are not herded 
together in commons and dorm'' 
tones, but are broken up in' 
families, being subject to Christian 
and refining influences. 

3. The tradition of the school 
is to make Christians and gentlemen

that surround them at all other 

5. Owing to its remoteness from 
cities and large towns, there is not 
the same inducement for its stu- 
dents to spend money outside of 
the regular college charges that ex- 
ists elsewhere; hence the University 
of the South is really cheaper than 
most other colleges. The fees and 
charges for board are greater than 
at some other schools, but when we 
consider that there are no saloons, 
nor billiard-rooms, nor gambling 
places allowed within four miles 
of Sewanee, we can see that in its 
higher charges for board and tuition 
the University of the South can 
afford to give its students the best 
tuition, and better guard them 
against the evils that beset other 

6. It is the conclusion of the 
best medical minds that boys from 
hotter and malarial regions should 
spend several years of their lives, 
between the ages of ten and twenty, 
in such an invigorating climate as 
that of Sewanee. 

7. This conclusion is also be- 
ginning to obtain in regard to 
youths living in the North and East, 
who are predisposed to pulmonary 
troubles, asthma and catarrh. 

Academy Has Three 
National Merit Finalists 

Three Sewanee Academy seniors 
were finalists in the National Merit 
Scholarship examinations. They are 
Anita Goss of Crossville, Tennessee, 
Martha Hatchett of Sewanee and 
Robert Meeks of Murrayville, 

Anita is a member of the choir 
and has acted in plays and served 
on the yearbook photography staff. 
She has applied to the University 
of Tennessee in Knoxville and the 
University of Michigan at Ann 

Martha is the daughter of the 
Rev. Marion J. Hatchett, professor 
in the School of Theology, and 
Mrs. Hatchett. In addition to her 
academic work she takes horseback 
riding and gymnastics. She has 
applied to Swarthmore College in 
Pennsylvania, Grinnell in Iowa and 
Earlham in Indiana. 

Robert is the son of Mr. and 
Mrs. Marshall Meeks of Murray- 
v *lle, and until his senior year 
attended North Hall High School 
"i Gainesville, Georgia, where he 
w as an honor roll student and 
active in sports. He was a Telluride 
Association Summer Program 
Scholar at the University of Georgia 
and earned a certificate of merit. He 
ha s applied to Cornell and Oberlin. 

Ha Ppy Birthday to a New Friend 

T *o friends of Donald E. Morton 
°f Chattanooga, Leonard Lance and 
Wi Uiam S. Mulherin of Nashville, 
Se nt checks to the University as a 

birthday greeting to him. Mr. Mor- 
ton had requested that they do this 
instead of buying him a present. 
Marcus L. Oliver, director of annual 
giving, acknowledged the gifts in this 
jvise: "Happy birthday, Mr. Morton 
. . . from Mr. Leonard Lance, Mr. 
William S. Mulherin, and a very 
grateful Sewanee! This is a wonder- 
ful idea. If we could persuade just 
a fraction of the population to 
follow this fine example, Sewanee's 
fiscal worries would be over. We 
find neither your name nor your 
friends' on our mailing list which 
makes the gift an even happier 
surprise. It means we have friends 
we don't even know about— and 
that is as it should be for a Sewanee. 
Many happy returns of the day!" 

Mrs. Pickering Down 

A favorite Academy teacher, Mrs. 
Marjorie (Bun) Pickering, reached 
the point this year where the back 
injury she sustained during World 
War II as a WAC in Italy, which 
has recurred after repeated opera- 
tions, put her out of action. (Not 
an easy thing to do, her students 
will testify.) Surgeons at Duke Uni- 
versity Hospital have performed a 
spinal fusion and ordered a conva- 
lescent period and gradual return to 
activity over nearly a year. Her wit 
is still as sharp as her bones some- 
times feel during her enforced re- 
cumbency, and students allow 
themselves to be entertained by her 
during hair-raising bouts of Monop- 
oly and Scrabble in Spanish. 

To Greater Understanding 

Dr. Don S. Armentrout, assistant 
professor of ecclesiastical history 
in the School of Theology, was one 
of sixteen recipients of special 
awards of commendation from the 
Concordia Historical Institute "for 
significant contributions to Luther- 
an history and archives during the 
year 1975." The awards were an- 
nounced at a dinner given by the 
Institute's board of governors in 
St. Louis January 25. 

The citation reads: "Don S. 
Armentrout for excellent research 
carried out on an interdenomina- 
tional subject in his article 'Luther- 
an-Episcopal Conversations in the 
Nineteenth Century,' Historical 
Magazine of the Protestant Episco- 
pal Church, XLIV, 2 (June 1975), 
167-187, which contributes to a 
greater understanding of the inter- 
relationships between these two 
historic communions." 

Libel Suit Settled 

The University's libel suit against 
the publishers of Insiders' Guide 
to the Colleges, 4th edition, has 
been settled before trial. The 
Berkeley Publishing Company of 
New York paid the University 
$10,000 plus accumulated court 

The University brought its 
suit after the book included in its 
item on the University of the South 
a gross untruth and refused to 
withdraw the book from circula- 
tion. The statement was: "As of 
this writing, it is too early to tell 
what the long-range effects of the 
killings of two black students dur- 
ing a mild demonstration on the 
campus in November will be. The 
sudden violence seemed incongru- 
ous, given the political mildness 
of the place, although state poli- 
ticians and not campus events were 
to blame." 

This canard was peculiarly 
galling since Sewanee's was one 
of the few entirely peaceful cam- 
puses during the turbulent 'sixties 
and early 'seventies. 

Vice-Chancellor Bennett says, 
"One of the reasons for the rela- 
tively small settlement was the 
much more strict burdens on the 
plaintiff in libel cases in the New 
York district which were decided 
after we filed suit but before the 
trial was scheduled. But at least 
the settlement vindicated our 
position in the matter." 

Sewanee Inn 

The Sewanee Inn has been leased 
from the University by Mr. and 
Mrs. James W. Hiles, who are oper- 
ating the restaurant and seventeen 
of the motel units (six are still in 
use as student dormitory space). 
Mr. Hiles was born in Beech 
Grove, Tennessee in 1923 and grew 
up there. Jean Cordell Hiles is from 
the Chattanooga area. From 1940 
to 1970 James Hiles lived near 
Smyrna, Tennessee, and was in the 
restaurant business in Rockwood 
1950-54. Since 1970 the couple 
has operated restaurants in Ocala, 
Florida and, most recently, the 

Commodore restaurant in Tulla- 

The restaurant is open every 
day from 9:00 A.M. to 9:00 P.M. 
and from 8:00 on weekends or 
on other days when motel guests 
are at hand for breakfast. Emphasis 
is on family-style cooking reason- 
ably priced. Specialties are steaks 
and seafood. 

Patrons have reported that the 
food is hot and promptly and 
pleasantly served. Those who have 
had steaks have liked them, and 
favorable comments have been 
heard on the meat-and-vegetable 
lunch. Telephone number is 615- 

Mountain Laurels 

In addition to honors previously 
reported, members of the College 
class of 1977 have won awards as 
of Charlottesville, Virginia, appoint-

Two years ago Sewanee Academy, 
the preparatory school of the Uni- 
versity of the South, initiated a 
program for an honors diploma, 
to be earned by students taking 
five honors courses in both math/ 
science and humanities, and main- 
taining a 3.0 grade point average in 
their junior and senior years. Stu- 
dents must also take a senior honors 
seminar, which is being held this 
year for the first time. 

Four seniors are enrolled in the 
honors program— all girls, as it 
happens. They are attending the 
seminar meetings on Thursday 
nights in faculty homes, along with 
members of the Academy's curricu- 
lum committee. Topic of the 
seminar is "Individual Survival in 
the Modern World." Sessions have 
been held on population growth, 
natural resources, the impact of 
man on the environment; the indi- 
vidual in modern society; changing 
roles of males and females; litera- 
ture and the arts, religion, and edu- 

Academic dean Max Cornelius 
said the honors program was started 
"to make a flexible curriculum bet- 
ter equipped to take care of all our 
students, whose abilities vary con- 
siderably." At the Thursday night 
sessions, he said, the focus is on the 
whole survival of the individual, 
physically, emotionally and spirit- 
ually. "We haven't found answers," 
he said, "we've just raised a lot of 

Leaders of the discussion 
groups have included faculty of 
both the Academy and the College 
of Arts and Sciences. For instance, 
literature and the arts were ably 

represented by Rhodes Scholar 
Douglas Paschall, assistant professor 
of English in the College, and Mrs. 
Paschall (Rosemary), art instructor 
at the Academy. Another husband 
and wife teaching team were Drs. 
Marvin and Anita Goodstein, pro- 
fessors of economics and history 
respectively in the College, who led 
the discussion on changing roles of 
males and females. 

The students themselves have 
lively praise for the program. Anne 
Cross says, "I love the honors 
seminar— it's worth it for that 
alone. We come out of the discus- 
sions and just want to change the 
world. It can't be done, but you do 
affect the people around you by 
what you believe. It's really opened 
my mind to things I've never 
thought about before." 

Sharon Bonner, though she says 
she "doesn't talk much," also 
enjoys the program. "I think you 
should do the best you can," she 
says, "and the honors program 
gives you the incentive to try 

Elizabeth Looney agrees. "I 
liked the chance to do in-depth 
study, to work harder than you 
have to in most of the classes 
around here." One of the things 
she learned was how to write term 
papers— she did one on new religi- 
ous cults, going to Chattanooga to 
interview Hare Krishna members 
and people "that I guess would be 
called 'Jesus freaks'." 

Anne's big project at present is 
in biology— she is studying leaves, 
trying to find similarities of amino 
acids within certain families of 

plants. She hopes to finish it by 
the end of the school year and pub- 
lish her results. Last semester for 
one of her honors courses she took 
a dendrology course in the College 
of Arts and Sciences. 

Asked if there is academic 
rivalry among these honors stu- 
dents, Sharon admitted there 
might be, but added, "We get in 
better arguments that way!" All 
are enjoying the seminar, and 
Elizabeth said, "It's valuable infor- 
mation for living today— you don't 
need to wait till you get out of 
school. It's life material instead of 
scholastic material." She feels they 
were just able to scratch the surface 
of such a large subject, wishes they 
had selected a more specific subject 
or had the seminar all year instead 
of just second semester. 

Anita Goss says that during the 
honors program she has written 
about twice as many papers as usual. 
She describes herself as "a chronic 
overachiever" and echoes Elizabeth's 
wish for a less broad seminar topic 
or more time to discuss. She wrote 
one paper on Renaissance art and 
did an oil painting in Renaissance 
style to go with it. Another of her 
projects was a research paper on 
comedic principle— Edward Gorey's 
Amphigorey tickled her funnybone 
and she chose it as her example. 
All these girls' faces light up as 
they describe their interest in their 
extra work and the fascination of 
the brainstorming seminar sessions. 
In its first year, the Sewanee Acad- 
emy's honors program would seem 
to have been firmly established in 
the curriculum. 


Six Honored at 

Awarded honorary degrees at the 
1977 Commencement were the R; 
Rev. Reginald Hollis, GST'66 
Bishop of Montreal, Dr. William $ 
Stoney, C'50, Nashville heart sur. 
geon and associate clinical professor 
of surgery at Vanderbilt University, 
the Most Rev. Festo Habakkul 
Olang, Archbishop of the Church 
of the Province of Kenya; the Rev. 
William Davis Henderson, parish 
missioner to the sick, shut-ins and 
aged of St. John's and Christ 
Churches, Roanoke, Virginia; Dr. 
Hope Henry Lumpkin, C'36, pro. 
fessor of history at the University 
of South Carolina; and the Rev. 
A. Patrick L. Prest, Jr., professor 
and chairman of the program in 
patient counseling at the School of 
Allied Health Professions of the 
Medical College of Virginia. 

An intriguing Sewanee footnote 
appends to the designation of 
Bishop Hollis. His first predecessor 
as Bishop of Montreal was Francis 
Fulford, who took part in the Con- 
vention of the Episcopal Church in 
1865 and in the consecration of 
Bishop Quintard who in turn 
named his Sewanee home, now the 
Vice-Chancellor's residence, after 
Bishop Fulford. Bishop and Mrs. 
Hollis spent two summers in 
Sewanee which inspired Mrs. Hollis 
to write The Witch of Shakeni 
Hollow, a notable contribution to 
Mountain lore. 

Academy Commencement 

Sixty-three seniors received their 
diplomas from the Sewanee Acad- 
emy at graduation exercises on 
Sunday, May 22. Everett Tucker, 
Jr., A'30, member of the board of 
governors of the Academy and 
president and director of the 
Industrial Development Company 
of Little Rock, spoke at the prep 
school's 109th commencement 
held in All Saints' Chapel to 
seniors, their parents, friends and 
all members of the Academy 

Tucker, who worked with the 
Little Rock Chamber of Commerce 
for ten years, is a 1934 graduate of 
Washington and Lee University. In 
1958 he was elected to the Little 
Rock school board, serving during 
the height of the integration contro- 
versy. He enlisted in the U. S. Army 
Air Corps in 1942 and was dis- 
charged as a major in 1946. He has 
been president of the American an" 
Southern Industrial Development 
Councils and currently is serving 
on various boards including the 
Arkansas National Stockyards, the 
Commercial National Bank, the 
Commonwealth Federal Savings & 
Loan Association, and the Washing- 
ton and Lee Alumni Association- 
He is married to the former Francis 
Williams and their eldest son, 
Robert, is an alumnus of Sewanf*

I can't afford it— I'm saving for 
college, say parents. But, for some 
students this way of thinking is a 
costly mistake. If the foundation 
for college is not firmly laid, the 
less mature student is perhaps being 
programmed to fail. Too late par- 
ents find that money should have 
been spent on prep school. 

The Sewanee Academy offers a 
fresh start, a new set of experiences. 
The learning/living aspects are in- 
valuable. You can't hide in a class 
of ten students. Being prepared be- 
comes a habit. You learn from your 
roommate to respect another per- 
son's feelings. Pressures from the 
group are in the direction of getting 
things done— and our students do.

JUNE 1977 



by Anne Cook 


What do you find to be the most difficult part 
of your job? 

The most frustrating thing about dealing 
with teens is to find out what they're thinking. 
They have a difficult time vocalizing. 

Our purpose is to provide a college prepara- 
tory education in a Christian environment. I 
think that must mean we're attempting to instill 
in them proper ethics, proper standards of con- 
duct. If we simply pointed out the academic 
buildings, the dining hall and said, "this is where 
you sleep," and so on, we wouldn't be meeting 
our responsibilities to the adolescent. They're 
still young and need guidance. 

I believe they need the structure this school 
provides. We have bells to wake up, hours for 
meals, class schedules that we expect them to 
meet, a haircut rule so they can get in the habit 
of being properly groomed, room inspection to 
give them a sense of orderliness. 

At the Academy we're trying to instill in 
them self-respect and self-discipline so they 
can handle the freedom they will have when 
they go off to college. 

What, are the rewards of yojur job? 

The rewards are in dealing with a basically 
good group of teen-agers and watching them 
develop. I teach history and am the golf coach 
so I deal with youngsters in everyday situations 
as well as in the special calls of the deanship. 

How do you deal with problems such as drugs 
or alcohol? 

Drugs are not the problem that they once 
were. Alcohol, as you know, has been on the 
rise in society as a whole. We try to educate 
students about these problems. We try to 
counsel individuals and from time to time have 
speakers. We want to develop a health program 
so that the student can be aware of what makes 
his body tick. A certain amount of experimenta- 
tion is inevitable. We have to have strict rules 
on alcohol and drug use. This is done not 
solely from a legal standpoint, but primarily 
for the best interests of the student and the 
Academy as a Christian institution. 

What happens to a student who gets in trouble? 

He's given a hearing by the discipline com- 
mittee, which is made up of faculty and stu- 
dents. He can tell his side of the story. Based 
°n the facts gathered in this hearing the D. C. 
recommends an action to the headmaster. 
This is usually conduct probation. If a student 
violates conduct probation he is again given a 
hearing. If the D. C. feels he has violated con- 
duct probation then it recommends dismissal. 

""hat is the most frequent reason given for 
Setting into trouble? 

The two most frequent excuses are "there's 
nothing to do around here" and "I have prob- 
lems." Of course the way to keep their minds 
a nd bodies occupied is to have as many whole- 
some activities as possible, not only on school

Academy, talking things over with Proctor Jean 
Ross, a senior from Guntersville, Alabama. 

days, but during their free time. A great deal of 
effort goes into planning shopping trips, ski and 
ice-skating outings, record dances. We also push 
athletics, both varsity and intramurals. 

Our plays twice a year involve students as 
actors and backstage in lighting and props. Our 
unique outing program offers another outlet. 

How does the discipline differ from the military 

Within the military framework we had a 
distinct chain of command. Everybody knew 
where he stood. If something happened, the 
commandant went to the battalion commander, 
who then turned to the company commander, 
etc. Under our prefect/proctor system the 
quality of dorm life is my responsibility, assisted 
by the students. For the most part they handle 
situations very well. 

Uniforms were worn in the old days, making 
our students easily distinguishable from the 
college students, and that made some things 
simpler. They have much more freedom today 
than under the military system. 

Within our student body of 180 are a few 
who come from problem situations. They come 
from broken homes or from homes with one 
parent who can't give them the attention they 
need. Many of them are looking for guidance. 

We provide a home away from home and they 
blossom and grow in this environment. 

A few we are unable to reach. There are a 
certain number that we counsel frequently in an 
attempt to keep them from getting into trouble. 

Why do they get into trouble in school? 

Lack of motivation. 

How do you motivate? 

It's difficult, but if we can bring just one 
person from oblivion, it's worth it. 

Do you think today's youth is softer? 

Yes, but it's not their fault. People today 
have a softer life than those of us who grew up 
closer to the depression. • 

While today's generation is more indulged 
than ours was, they can surprise you with their 
character and good humor. For instance, the 
efforts for conserving energy by the University 
this past January were for the most part readily 
accepted by our student body. They tolerated 
the sixty-degree temperature with equanimity. 
Giving up their daily shampoo and shower was 
much tougher for them, and they grumbled 
about it. If cleanliness is next to godliness, then 
this generation is right up there.

Swasey Resigns 

Martha Swasey, director of women's 
athletics at the University, has re- 
signed, effective at the end of the 
school year, to open a school of 
physical education in Chattanooga. 
The goal of the school will be to 
promote lifetime sports and to help 
schools in the Mid-South in develop- 
ing interscholastic sports programs 
for girls and women. 

Pam Lampley, who came to 
Sewanee last year to coach tennis 
and work in the women's physical 
education program, will be the new 
women's athletic director. 

Mrs. Swasey came to Sewanee 
five years ago, two years after 
women students were admitted, 
with the assignment to develop an 
athletic program which included 
physical education and intramurals 
that would meet the needs of 
women students at the University. 
The program now comprises six 
varsity sports for the 360 women, 
an augmented physical education 
curriculum in which all classes are 
coed, and a program of extramural 
and intramural activities which has 
also grown through popular demand. 

Pam Lampley received her B.S. 
degree from the University of Ten- 
nessee at Knoxville in 1973 and her 
M.S. degree, also from U.T., in 1974. 
She has taught physical education 
classes and coached at the Univer- 
sity of Texas at Austin. 

Since coming to Sewanee she 
has taught golf and tennis and 
coached basketball and tennis. Next 
year she plans to continue as the 
women's tennis coach. 


Sewanee played four teams during 
the regular season, all schools that 
give athletic scholarships, and won 
3 out of 13 games. CAC competi- 
tion was in the tournament at Prin- 
cipia College, where the Tigers 
came in fifth. Seems that at Sewa- 
nee, intramural Softball attracts

season keeping the varsity baseball 
team together. 


Tennis is THE sport at Sewanee this 
spring. The men's team won 10 and 
lost 5 and finished first in the CAC 
tournament, making them 15 and 6 
for the season. The women won 10 
and lost 3. 

The men defeated Fisk 9-0 in 
their opening match and never 
looked back. The five losses were 
all to athletic scholarship schools, 
with two scholarship schools falling 
to Sewanee. The squad this year is 
the largest ever, with all players re- 
turning next year. Sperry Lee plays 
in the No. 1 spot, with David 
Humphreys No. 2, Tandy Lewis 

No. 3, Woody Leonard No. 4, cap- 
tain Ed Colhoun No. 5, Sam Bold- 
rick No. 6, and John Douglas No. 7. 

The Tigers had 9-0 wins over 
Fisk, Belmont, Bryan and Motlow 
and lost to Carson-Newman and 
Emory. In the TIAC they were 
topped by powerful Carson-Newman 
and by Tennessee Wesleyan, whom 
they narrowly defeated earlier in 
the season. Colhoun and Boldrick 
reached the singles finals, and the 
team of Boldrick-Douglas reached 
the finals in doubles. 

The CAC win was especially 
sweet because Principia, whom Se- 
wanee didn't play during the regu- 
lar season, was the favorite, being 
ranked third in the nation in 
Division III. Individual champions 
are David Humphreys in the No. 2 
position, Tandy Lewis in the No. 
3 position, and Ed Colhoun in the 
No. 5 position. In the doubles the 
team of Colhoun-Lewis won the 
championship at No. 2 spot. 

The women netters, behind the 
strong singles play of Lynn Jones 
and Amy St. John, who teamed up 
for a formidable doubles attack, 
downed Belmont and Young Harris 
9-0, and also defeated MTSU, Mary- 
ville, Tennessee Tech and David 
Lipscomb. Losses were to Furman, 
UT-Knoxville, and Emory. 


Trackmen started the season with 
warmup participation in the Florida 
Relays and Davidson Relays. They 
downed UTC 83-58 and then 
rolled over Samford 83-34. Among 
Tiger winners in that contest were 
Frank Selph in the pole vault, Bill 
Lemos in javelin and discus, Mike 
Marchetti in the shot put, and Ted 
Miller in the 440 intermediate and 
the 110 high hurdles. 

A 44-99 loss to Vanderbilt 
in the rain followed— though Selph 
won the pole vault and Miller the 
440 hurdles, Mike Harding the 880 
dash and John Jacobs the 440 dash. 
Felton Wright ran the 3-mile in a 
creditable 15:15, losing to the Van- 
derbilt runner by half a step. 

A close win over Maryville 
(74-69) rounded out the 3-1 season, 
with Selph the star as he broke the 
school record in the pole vault at 
14 feet. Sewanee runners Chuck 
Boswell, Charlie Orr and Scott 
Tully finished 1-2-3 in the 880; 
the mile relay team beat their oppo- 
nents; and contributing to the win 
were Harding in the 440 dash, Billy 
Cox in the long jump, and David 
Ricks in the 440 intermediate 

A disappointing fifth place 
finish in the CAC marred the record 
of this year's small team. 


Sewanee had a 2-7 season record 
but finished third in the CAC, led 
by freshman Wayne Davis with a 
154 (75-79). 

The Tennessee Intercollegiate 
Championships, held at the Sewa- 
nee course on a bright sunny week- 
end, drew a record number of 
entries. The Sewanee team finished 

fifth out of twelve teams entered i 
the college division. Mark Smith 
with 153 and Ben Jackson with 155 
were the low Sewanee scorers, with 
captain Ken Schuppert, who won 
the CAC as a freshman, coming j 
with 159. The university divisio 
provided some excitement when 
Emile Vaughan of MTSU won the 
individual scoring with a 64, break- 
ing the course record, and a par 72. 
Beating out Sewanee were Carson- 
Newman, Christian Brothers, UTC 
and David Lipscomb, the latter a 
full scholarship school whom Sewa- 
nee beat in the regular season. 

Swimming and Gymnastics 

Synchronized swimming ended 
their season with 4 wins and 1 loss. 
While their team lost to the Univer- 
sity of Georgia, Nora Frances Stone 
and Jennifer Ray were first and 
second in individual scoring. The 
Stone-Ray duo got better support 
from their teammates as Sewanee 
downed Mississippi University for 
Women. Then Sewanee won 
three-way meet with Agnes Scott 
and Brenau, taking the first four 
places in the B division led by Anne 
Morton. In the A division Jennifer 
Ray finished second behind Agnes 
Scott's Laura McDonald. 

The gymnastics team wound up 
the year with 4 wins and 3 losses.

Y'all Come 

Alumni and friends and friends of 
alumni and friends, their families 
and friends of their families are 
urged to reserve immediately for 
the Alumni Summer College July 
1-9 by writing to Dr. Edwin Stirling, 
Sewanee, Tennessee 37375. 

As all those who shared the 
initial experience last summer will 
vouch, this is a splendid chance to 
arouse routine-dulled intellects or 
sharpen active ones, savor the 
Mountain at its greenest, strengthen 
old bonds and forge new ones. Plus 
the opportunity to enroll your 
children in a creative day program 
at no extra cost, that will allow 
them a vacation from their parents, 
with options for shared recreation. 

As before, the best and bright- 
est of the College faculty will be 
assembled to present aspects of 
their disciplines and launch provoca- 
tive discussions expected to con- 
tinue beyond schedule. No home- 
work other than voluntary, no 
grades, no competition. 

Douglas Paschall, C'66 and 
D.Phil. Oxford University, will 
consider criticism. "I hope to 
show," Paschall says, "that the 
critic need not be a bogey-man to 
be avoided, but rather a guide to be 

Harold J. Goldberg, the history 
department's China hand, will focus 
on the major factors which shaped 
China's development in the Twen- 
tieth Century— nationalism, com- 
munism, and the amazing career of 
Mao Tse-tung, and will include 
some speculations on China's future. 

Robert C. F. Cassidy of the de- 
partment of religion will zero in on 
one of the most poignant of con- 
temporary dilemmas with "Death 
by Choice: A Case Study in Moral 
Decisioning." A. Scott Bates, 
French professor who has been 
teaching a course on film, will 
explore critical ways of looking at 
movies, with several samples for 
viewing. Marcia Clarkson, lecturer 
in computer science, will offer 
three sessions on this ubiquitous 
contemporary, plus an opportunity 
for elementary school children of 
participants to use a computer 
assisted mathematics program. 
Tommy Gene Watson, duPont's 
lively new librarian, will take as 
his thesis "The potential of the 
public library to be a major force 
which shapes society makes it, in 
many ways, the 'hottest spot in 
town.' We will examine the kinds of 
service people have a right to ex- 
pect from their libraries as well as 
what they, in turn, can do to make 
libraries more potent forces in the

Academy Board of Governors 
The Rev. Roderick Welles, Jr., 
newly appointed headmaster, was 
expected to meet with the Sewa- 
nee Academy alumni governing 
board at their meeting May 21 just 
before Commencement. Also pres- 
ent and reporting on his ideas for 
the Academy's future was to be 
headmaster Henry Hutson, who is 
leaving this summer to become 
headmaster of Christ School, Arden, 
North Carolina. Everett Tucker, 
A'30, of Little Rock, who serves 
on the board of governors, was 
chosen as the Commencement 

Alumni Council Meets April 23 
"Sewanee in Transition" was the 
theme of this year's Alumni Coun- 
cil, with class agents in attendance 
from 1921 (Thomas Hargrave) to 
1972 (Henry Lodge) and others in 
between from far and wide. 

Carrying out the theme in 
specific terms was a panel presided 
over by former Chancellor and 
chairman of the search committee 
for a new Vice-Chancellor, Bishop 
Girault Jones, T'28, H'49. On the 
panel were faculty members Gilbert 
Gilchrist, C'49, and dean of women 
Mary Sue Cushman; alumni John 
Crawford, C'28, and the Rev. James 
Johnson, T'58; and junior student 
trustee Tommy Williams. Both 
Gilchrist and Williams are on the 
search committee. 

Dr. Gilchrist said that the three 
most important jobs immediately 
ahead were the appointment of an 
interim Vice-Chancellor with the 
respect of all and authority to act, 
the choice of the right Vice-Chan- 
cellor, and putting in order the 
University's financial condition. 
Considerable discussion followed, 
especially on the setting of priori- 
ties and criteria for selecting the 
new Vice-Chancellor. 

Other views of panelists: Finan- 
cial aid must be continued on the 
basis of need and awarded up to 
the amount for which that need is 
demonstrated.— Tommy Williams. 
The top priority of Sewanee is 
maintenance of the highest educa- 
tional standards.— Mary Sue Cush- 
man. Alumni and other constitu- 
ents cannot just love Sewanee but 
must work for Sewanee.— John 
Crawford . 

Giving the report on Opera- 
tion: Task Force, Mark Oliver as 
staff director for annual giving said 
that the percentage of alumni par- 
ticipation is up but dollars are 
down. He presented awards for 
reaching five-per-cent-increase goals 
for 1976-77, to Douglass Mel 

C'45, and Henry Lodge, C'72. Not 
present but recognized as goal- 
reachers were the Rev. Horatio 
Tragitt, C'15; 1926 (Colie Harwell 
recently resigned and has been suc- 
ceeded by Robert Evans); William 
Schoolfield, C'29; Lewis Lee, C'55; 
and Billy Joe Shelton, C'76. 

Dean Stephen Puckette, C'49, 
proposed a plan to achieve 50 per 
cent participation by all classes. 
Dividing by four the number of 
class members it would take for a 
class to reach the desired 50 per 
cent giving goal, the number 
determined would be solicited by 
four classmates. The president 
commended this plan to all class 
agents for adoption. 

Reports on progress in each of 
their respective areas of concern 
were given by the Rev. James 
Johnson, T'58, for Church Support; 
Richard Simmons, C'50, for Admis- 
sions; Warren Belser, C'50, for 
Regions; and Edward Watson, C'30, 
for Bequests. 

Mr. Johnson introduced a reso- 
lution of appreciation for Dr. 
Bennett's close cooperation with 
Sewanee alumni and full support of 
the development program, and 
sending him the best wishes of all 
in the years to come. 

Hall Trophy-Alumni Banquet 

John Crawford, without question 
one of the outstanding class leaders 
in the long history of the Associated 
Alumni, was presented the Hall 
Trophy at the Alumni Council 
banquet for having brought his 
class in the last fiscal year from 
about 20 per cent to 70 per cent 
participation. The trophy was pre- 
sented by O. Morgan Hall, C'39, 
who said that dedication and con- 
centrated effort were responsible 
for this success. 

Also pointing out that distance 
is no obstacle to success in the class 
effort, former alumni president Hall 
cited Mr. Crawford from Portland, 
Maine, and Thomas Hargrave, C'21, 
of Rochester, New York, as out- 
standing class chairmen traveling 
the longest distances to be at 
Alumni Council. 

Vice-Chancellor Bennett and Dr. 
Gilbert Gilchrist both addressed the 
gathering. Dr. Bennett expressed 
appreciation for support during his 
tenure and told the alumni that it 
must not be interrupted. "It must 
be increased if you^are to have the 
kind of Sewanee you want and the 
kind your children and grandchild- 
ren deserve."

1977 Trying for 100% 

Two seniors, William Porcher (Billy) 
DuBose and Henry (Hank) Selby, 
presented themselves in the alumni 
office one day to say, "What can 
we do for Sewanee?" As a conse- 
quence Billy became the class agent 
and Hank class chairman. The two 
put together an ingenious plan to 
have the class of 1977 meet on two 
occasions before graduation for 
fellowship and commitment. 

At a luncheon where the seniors 
were addressed by Dr. Bennett and 
Dr. Gilbert Gilchrist, C'49, the 

seniors signed a pledge, for an 
indefinite amount since many 
seniors are uncertain of their 
immediate future following gradua- 
tion. Billy DuBose charged the 
seniors, "If we are successful in 
having every senior sign a pledge, 
we will set an example for every 
prior class and a precedent for 
every future class." 

Although nearly all seniors 
were at the luncheon, Hank Selby 
invited all to a beer party after 
"comps" for the first purely social 

I are clued into events 

JUNE 1977 

function with the view of having 
everyone present. Those not at the 
luncheon turned in their pledges 
bringing the graduating seniors in 
the class of 1977 close to the 100 
per cent goal for participation in 
unrestricted giving. 

Mew Trustees 

The Associated Alumni have elect- 
ed to three-year terms on the board 
of trustees the Very Rev. Allen L. 
Bartlett, C'51, dean of Christ 
Church Cathedral, Louisville; 
George Langstaff, C'48, president 
of General Shoe of Nashville; and 
Richard Simmons, C'51, president 
of Hamilton and Shackelford Insur- 
ance Company of Birmingham. The 
Associated Alumni are entitled to 
seven seats. The president, George 
B. Elliott, C'51, serves by virtue of 
his office. 

Sewanee Club Activity 
Coming from many parts of Vir- 
ginia and Maryland, the Sewanee 
Club of Washington at the invita- 
tion of president Dr. Jerry Snow, 
C'61, gathered at the traditional 
meeting place in rural northern 
Virginia, the Evans Farm Inn, 
April 15 to hear Dr. Ted Stirling, 
C'62, speak and answer questions 
about Sewanee in a time of tran- 
sition. . . . That same day the 
lacrosse team was in Columbia, 
South Carolina, where president 
Earl H. (Trace) Devanny, C'74, had 
a keg on the field and young alumni 
to root for the Tiger club. He also 
announced a summer party for 
June 10, revived a tradition for the 
pre-school barbecue at White Pond 
between Columbia and Camden for 
August 21 and even set the date of 
January 6 for the annual Christmas 
holiday party. All clubs please take 
note of Central South Carolina 
activity for ideas and be aware of 
Dobbins Trophy competition for 
the best club! . . . Tampa Bay Area 
heard Sewanee's veteran raconteur 
Dean John Webb at the University 
Club of Tampa. This club has found 
vigorous new leadership in president 
Bobby Newman, C'73. . . . The

fayetteville, Tennessee to Florence 
and down to Guntersville, Alabama, 
centered in Huntsville) went audio- 
visual and showed "A Place for Ivy" 
a ' the residence of Jane and Carter 
Martin. President Lee Prout, C'61, 
with strong support from all over 
north Alabama and especially from 
'he Jim Clarks, has made this new 
c 'ub one of the most active of all. 
■ Pensacola alumni and friends 
m et May 20 at the Pensacola Coun- 
"y Club and heard reports from 
Wo trustees recently returned from 
'he annual meeting at Sewanee and 
from President Jim Moody, C'42, 

on club activity. . . . Nashville met 
May 14 at the home of Joe McAllis- 
ter, C'56, with good attendance for 
a wine and cheese party. Leonard 
Wood, C'54, is president. 

Reunions at Homecoming 

Fifty-year reunions at Sewanee just 
in the past few years have become 
something for each succeeding 
chairman to reckon with as activity, 
attendance and nostalgia combined 
for a kind of deja vu happening. 
Ralph Speer, C'27, is laying plans 
with his classmates for what may be 
the best ever at this Homecoming, 
October 21-23, as 1927 classmates 
across the country feed in their 
ideas for a display of memorabilia 
and all that goes with the big cele- 

Last year's twenty-fifth reunion 
saw published a brochure replete 
with newsletter, directory and pic- 
tures of 1951ers celebrating so 
nostalgically that it went to all 
class chairmen for future ideas. 
The Class of 1952 under the 
leadership of Andy Duncan and 
Win Price will be on the Mountain 
not to be outdone by any previous 
twenth-fifth reunion. 

Classes previous to 1927 come 
to the Mountain each year as 
Alumni Exornati (50-year gradu- 
ates already honored). Classes of 
years in multiples of five will have 
their reunions this year: 1932, their 
forty-fifth, 1937, their fortieth; on 
up to 1972, their fifth. If yours is 
in between, you are welcome to 
help fellow alumni in school with 
you celebrate their anniversary. 

ATO Centennial 

"Centennial Celebration in 1977." 
This is the theme for Sewanee's 
ATO, which has been on the 
Mountain for one hundred years. 
Activities at Homecoming will be 
centered in the Tennessee Omega 
lodge, the oldest fraternity house 
in the South before it burnt and 
was exactly reproduced. Mike Par- 
due, C'53, plastic surgeon of 
Thousand Oaks, California, is 
national chairman. 

Career Counseling 

Concluding Alumni Career Counsel- 
ing May 5-6 was the session on law. 
Five attorneys and a law student, 
Dale Grimes, C'75, were on hand to 
spell out the rewards and hazards of 
the profession to Sewanee's pre-law 
students. In attendance were Ned 
Boehm, C'69, general practitioner 
of Chattanooga, Harold Bigham, 
C'54, Vanderbilt law professor; 
Robert Hood, C'66, trial lawyer of 
Charleston; and Floyd Sherrod, 
C'58, of Decatur, Alabama, general 
practice and environmental law

Pat M. Greenwood, C'28, chairman of the 
board of the Great Southern Life Insurance 
Company of Houston and the parent Great 
Southern Corporation, was presented at his 
company's last annual meeting with a bust of 
himself by Robert Berks, sculptor of Presidents 
and other notables. At the same time he was 
inducted into the company's hall of fame 
as an honorary member. 

The gift was a highly appropriate one since 
he is a connoisseur and collector of South- 
western art, and has seen to it that good art is 
in view of all his company's 400 employees. 

Mr. Greenwood joined Great Southern after 
a year at Sewanee and built the company into 
one that passed $3 billion of insurance in force 
last September. A civic and philanthropic leader 
in Houston, at seventy he has announced no 
retirement plans. 

He relaxes with an elaborate model railroad, 
complete with towns and countryside, behind 
his house. "My children and grandchildren can 
watch me, " he says, "but I won't let them 
touch it. "

Charles Wheatley, C'66, undertook for his 
master's in architecture thesis at U.C.L.A. a de- 
sign for the rehabilitation of Sewanee's Cannon 
Hall. He explains: "The problem of rehabilita- 
tion of existing buildings is an important design 
problem facing architects today. The 'rehab' 
as opposed to the restored building is mainly 
concerned with the efficient reuse of a building 
rather than its return to an 'original state' or 
an historical style. My approach to Cannon 
Hall was as a 'rehab.' . . . The new building 
exists as a dialectic: two buildings which relate 
by their common fabric (masonry) but contrast 
in regard to their technology and characteristics 

of form which are juxtaposed next to one 
another. The tension which results from these 
juxtapositions of differences in fact helps to 
unify the two into a complementary whole." 

The revitalized structure proposes the 
inclusion of a lecture room and classroom, 
faculty offices, studios for sculpture and ceram- 
ics, videotaping and sound recording, exhibit 
and event space. Adviser for the project was 
Cesar Pelli, now dean of the Yale University 
school of architecture and one of eleven 
architects from the United States invited to 
participate in the Venice Biennale last summer.

For the third consecutive year, the Million 
Dollar Program has surpassed its goal in unre- 
stricted gifts and bequests. Even that statement 
seems to be hollow without some understanding 
of what it means in personal sacrifice and dedica- 
ted love for The University of the South. The 
goal for 1976-77 was $1,134,000. The gener- 
osity of Sewanee's benefactors boosted our fis- 
cal-year total to $1,238,217, a campaign record. 
Our total gift income for the year in restricted 
and unrestricted funds was $1,709,866. 

As could be expected, the final month of 
the campaign was crucial. Unrestricted gifts of 
$208,562 received in June gave us the second 
highest final-month total in the seven-year his- 
tory of the Million Dollar Program, designed as 
a direct support for Sewanee's operating budget. 


$ 533,395 


$ 738,494 





















I cannot express how much the personal 
efforts of so many of our alumni and friends 
have meant to this campaign. There is simply no 
substitute for the strong and aggressive leader- 
ship of committed volunteer leaders— the regents, 
trustees, alumni, parents and friends. I have said 
before that those who are best at fund raising 
are volunteers and the Vice-Chancellor, and in 
this regard I should mention here that Dr. J. 
Jefferson Bennett, the university's immediate 
past Vice-Chancellor and President, was indis- 
pensible to the success of the campaign just 

I should also mention that this, our third 
year to reach our program goal, was also the 
third year that Robert M. Ayres, our acting 
Vice-Chancellor, was chairman of the Million 
Dollar Program. 

An important adjunct to our fund raising 
is our effort to make people increasingly aware 
of what The University of the South is trying to 
accomplish. Even some of our alumni believe 
Sewanee's mission may have changed in recent 
years. But the commitment of our faculty, 
staff and supporters to achieving unusually 
high academic excellence in a spiritual en- 
vironment has seldom, if ever, been stronger. 
Volunteer leaders are important in explaining 
our mission, as well as our needs. 

These times are not kind to private colleges 
and universities. While The University of the 
South maintains a good fiscal posture upon a 
strong financial base, other schools have not 
been as fortunate. In the past seven years, the 
nation has lost 45 private institutions of higher 
learning. Mergers of private schools into larger 
state-supported systems are not uncommon. In 
maintaining the independence of The University 
of the South, we must appeal increasingly to our 
alumni and friends and, with their assistance, ex- 
pand our base of support. 

An innovation in this past year's program 
was the organization of dinners with the Vice- 
Chancellor. The dinners had a threefold purpose. 
First, they allowed us to" identify prospective 
donors. Second, the dinners enabled these per- 
sons to hear of Sewanee's missions and goals 
directly from the Vice-Chancellor. And third, 
they provided a beautiful opportunity for the 
Vice-Chancellor to visit with donors, many of 
whom were not alumni but were Episcopalians 
or persons who felt a special commitment to the 
university. In thinking back over the dinners this 
past year, I remember disappointments, but I 
remember, as well, some wonderful surprises in 
support for Sewanee. 

Plans are under way for the new year. Din- 
ners with Robert M. Ayres, our acting vice-chan- 
cellor, are being planned for eight cities. The 
tentative schedule includes Atlanta, Birmingham, 
Chattanooga, Jacksonville, Louisville, Nashville, 
New Orleans and San Antonio. 

We also are continuing our program of Met- 
ropolitan Area Campaigns, organizing our vol- 
unteer efforts to seek financial support for the 
University. Other benefits are resulting from 
these campaigns. In conducting a Metropolitan 
Area Campaign in Jacksonville, Florida, we saw 
the Sewanee Club for that city suddenly re- 

It should also be noted specially that in 
addition to having a gradually increasing number 
of donors, the Million Dollar Program this year 
has nineteen members of the Chancellor's So- 
ciety—persons who gave $10,000 or more. This 
breaks last year's record of thirteen members. 
A highlight of the year was an exceptional- 
ly large gift from Mrs. Brownlee Currey of Nash- 
ville. Mrs. Currey spent summers of her youth at 
Tuckaway Inn. And the proceeds of her gift 
have made possible the current dormitory reno- 
vation of Tuckaway. 

Operation: Task Force, implemented last 
year to increase the number of alumni gifts by 
5 per cent each year, has achieved a certain 
initial success while not reaching the goal. The 
number of gifts increased an average of 4 per 
cent. But of 74 University classes, 29 had in- 
creases of 5 per cent or more, ranging up to 22 
per cent for the Class of '29 and 21 per cent for 
the Class of '55. 

The blessings we have received over the 
past months have given us confidence to look 
ahead to the new year and a new goal of 
$1,150,000 for the Million Dollar Program. Our 
confidence can only be a product of our en- 
thusiasm for the future of Sewanee. But we need 
the enthusiasm and commitment of all of our 
good friends and alumni to make this new year 
another successful one. 

William U. Whipple 
Vice-President for Development 


Plan Ahead 

The attention of America is on the 
new college year — whether football 
games or classes— but the Sewanee 
admissions office is already think- 
ing about next year, and smart high- 
school seniors are thinking about 
next year too. 

By now the College admissions 
staff has accumulated a list of more 
than 2,200 names of prospective 
Sewanee students. And the first 
candidates accepted for the 1978 
academic year will be receiving ad- 
missions letters by mid-November. 

Albert S. Gooch, Jr., admis- 
sions director, said he will have 
virtually completed admissions 
work for next year by May 1. By 
that date, he and his staff, includ- 
ing Paul E. Engsberg, associate di- 
rector, will have visited, written and 
talked with more than 10,000 pro- 
spective students and, in many 
cases, their families. 

Contacts with these college 
prospects will prompt approxi- 
mately 1,050 applications, from 
which a freshman class of 290 to 
310 students (60 percent of those 
actually accepted for admission) 
will be enrolled. 

This fall Sewanee has 310 new 
college freshmen and another fifty 
transfer and re-entering students. 

"A good selection of appli- 
cants means we do not have to 
accept mediocre students just to fill 
spaces," Mr. Gooch said. "But at 
the same time, we do not have to 
be unfair to those who meet ad- 
missions standards." 

The current list of 2,200 or 
more prime college prospects is 
gathered not through mailing lists 
purchased from commercial agents 
or high-powered advertising cam- 
paigns but by proven methods of 
finding those students who not 
only would be suitable for Sewanee 
but would find Sewanee the place 
where they could reach their high- 
est potentials. 

First there are the high school 
students who know something 
about Sewanee and write for ad- 
missions information. Other stu- 
dents ask that their ACT and SAT 
test scores be sent to Sewanee. 
Sewanee may also be one of two 
colleges listed by students on their 
Merit Scholarship applications. Also 
the list of some 300 students who 
receive Sewanee Club Awards each 
year in their junior year is added to 
the new year's admissions list. 

The admissions office also 
asks each entering freshman to 
recommend two or more students 
from the junior class of his high 
school, and recommendations are 
sought from the clergy of each 
owning diocese. Then there are 
those prospects who visit the Uni- 
versity on the recommendation of 
friends or Sewanee alumni. 

Albert S. Gooch, Jr., admissions director, talks with Eric Zimm of Temple Terrace, 
Florida, during a spring visit to the campus. Eric is an entering freshman this fall. 

"Our approach is not that of 
a salesman," said Mr. Gooch, "We 
do not want anyone to come to 
Sewanee who does not sincerely 
want to come to Sewanee. 

"Our brochures are printed in 
black and white, not because we 
don't have ample opportunity for 
glamorous color pictures but be- 
cause we look at our job as intro- 
ducing, not selling, Sewanee to the 
prospective student," he said. 

The student sold too quickly, 
Mr. Gooch said, may be lost just as 

The first criterion for admis- 
sions is to be sure the student can 
do the quality of work required at 
Sewanee. The next step, Mr. Gooch 
said, is to look at the type of per- 
son the applicant is through extra- 
curricular activities and what others 
say about him. And finally the 
committee tries to look at the kind 
of contribution the student could 
make at Sewanee, whether through 

work on the radio station or news- 
paper, participation in athletics or 
student government or in simply 
being a good associate to other 

"Obviously we make mistakes. 
Every year," said Mr. Gooch, "we 
accept students who do poorly or 
flunk out, and we do not accept 
others who go elsewhere and make 
Phi Beta Kappa." 

If an applicant is rejected, he 
said, it is important that the ad- 
missions office and faculty com- 
mittee on admissions not do it 

"At the end of our dealings 
with a student and his parents, we 
want them to know that we at Se- 
wanee were their friends, were in- 
terested in them," he said. 

"Every time someone applies 
for admission, we are complimen- 
ted by that application," said Mr. 
Gooch. "We look for ways to say

Robert M. Ayres, Jr., C'49, H'74, has been directing University affairs 
as acting Vice-Chancellor since July 1. His schedule has been 
crowded. Except for occasional trips away from the campus, it has 
not been unusual to see a light in his office at night. His feelings about 
his interim position are expressed here in a special interview. 


Q. How long do you expect your 
appointment as Vice-Chancellor to 
last, and what opportunity is there 
to take any meaningful action dur- 
ing this time? 

A. I would expect to be here for a 
year. It very likely will take that 
long for the selection committee 
to complete its work and for the 
board of trustees to name a per- 
manent Vice-Chancellor. 

Since I am not a stranger to 
Sewanee— having served on the 
board of trustees and the board of 
regents— I feel strongly that con- 
tinued action can be taken to 
strengthen the University and see 
that we meet both the short-term 
and long-term goals established by 
the regents. 

We are blessed with an out- 
standing student body and an out- 
standing faculty at a time when 
many colleges are suffering from 
enrollment problems. Last year our 
freshmen entered with the highest 
test averages in the University's 
history. I am also impressed with 
the commitment people have to the 
University — the faculty, administra- 
tive staff, and employes outside 
the academic area, many of whom 
have spent twenty and thirty years 
serving this community. 

We, therefore, have an ex- 

Q. What then is your first concern 
as acting Vice-Chancellor? 
A. I believe it is of primary im- 
portance that we cease to operate 
at a deficit, which this past year 
approached $500,000. This will 
be particularly difficult, however, 
in these times of inflation and with 
the limitations we have for increas- 
ing tuition and fees. 

Q. Could you explain some of the 
action being taken to eliminate the 

A. First, we have to operate every 
segment of this corporation in as 
efficient a manner as possible. We 
must tighten our belts. This may 
require each of us to assume a 
heavier work load. 

Q. You have been critical of the 
financial drain of several auxiliary 
services of the University. What is 
the alternative? 

A. Our auxiliary services offer an 
opportunity to earn some income 
for the University. I think it is 
important that we endeavor to 
operate these auxiliary services in 
a way that will provide the best 
service to our community. It is my 
hope that this year we can increase 
the revenue of these services and 
perhaps turn several operations to a 
break-even or profit position. 

Q. Could you give ah example? 

A. An example is Emerald-Hodgson 
Hospital, which lost $130,000 this 
past year. We have just employed a 
new hospital administrator, a man 
with experience in rural hospital 
management. He is heading an 
effort to bring additional phy- 
sicians to Sewanee, which should 
increase the number of patients 
and gradually reduce the losses. 

Q. Are there other financial prob- 
lems you must deal with? 
A. I am thankful we do not have to 
build any new facilities at this time, 
but I am concerned about the con- 
dition of some of our existing build- 
ings. These maintenance items 
weigh very heavily on our budget 
each year. 

Another concern is the size of 
our debt, which is approximately 
$3.7 million. The interest alone on 
this debt last year was in excess of 
$260,000. If we could find the 
necessary gifts to the University to 
reduce this debt, it would enable us 
to reduce the operating deficit. 

Q. You were one of the members 
of a special committee formed last 
year to study The Sewanee Acad- 
emy. That study, completed this 
year, actually dealt with the very 
life and death of the Academy. 
Where does the Academy stand 
now in University plans? 
A. The Academy has been a con- 
cern because of poor enrollment 
these past several years and thus has 
created losses in some years in 
excess of $100,000. The board of 
regents and the board of trustees 
have expressed their determination 
to continue the operation of the 
Academy. Every effort possible will 
be made to strengthen the insti- 

We look forward to the leader- 
ship of the Rev. Rod Welles as head- 
master. We have a fine secondary 
school, with excellent teaching, and 
it deserves greater support through 
enrollment and financial gifts than 
it has received in the past. 

Q. Concerning financial campaigns, 
much emphasis has been placed on 
annual unrestricted giving. Will that 
continue to receive as much atten- 

A. The annual unrestricted giving 
program is the third major source 
of income, after tuition and endow- 
ment income, and it must continue 
to be strengthened. 

Several years ago the Univer- 
sity initiated the Million Dollar Pro- 
gram, realizing that by 1975 we 
would need $1 million a year in un- 
restricted funds to balance our bud- 

get. We have exceeded the $1 mill- 
ion level for three years, but we still 
have not balanced our budget be- 
cause costs have increased faster 
than our income. 

I feel we may have reached a 
plateau in unrestricted giving. The 
$1.2 million raised this past year is 
a very significant sum of money for 
an institution of our size. Neverthe- 
less, we must maintain that level 
and make every effort to increase it. 

Our endowment provides a 
very significant portion of our in- 
come. It must be managed in an in- 
telligent manner and must be in- 
creased through the solicitation of 
significant contributions. 

Q. Where can the University seek 

additional financial support? 

A. I am deeply concerned with 

what I see as inadequate church 

support for the University of the 


One hundred and twenty 
years ago a very small group of 
bishops, representing a relatively 
few parishioners in dioceses which 
were not affluent, gathered almost 
as much money for the University 
as was given this past year by 
churches representing significant 
numbers of. affluent Episcopalians. 

This says one or two things to 
me, and we at Sewanee need to give 
these questions a hard look: Are we 
providing our churches with a real 
Christian outreach on this moun- 
tain? In addition to providing ex- 
cellent academic offerings, are we 
helping our students in the acad- 
emy, college, and seminary to find 
a closer personal relationship with 
our Lord Jesus Christ, for only thus 
can we be assured, as in the words 
of the University prayer, that "the 
students will grow in grace day by 
day". Do we have a community 
where love and respect for one ano- 
ther is of the highest priority? 

If we are doing these things, 
all of us have an obligation to com- 
municate this to the Episcopal com- 

We are, of course, serving our 
Church in unique ways. A new pro- 
gram in The School of Theology, 
Theological Education by Exten- 
sion, is receiving international recog- 
nition. It is intended to provide lay 
persons with the education needed 
for the kind of ministry to which 
every baptized person is called. An 
enrollment of 1,200 is expected by 
this fall, and interest is growing 

Q. What other special concerns do 
you have? 

A. My greatest hope for this year is 
that we look at things very realis- 

tically here at Sewanee. I want 
there to be an openness and hones- 
ty about ourselves and the aims of 
the University. 

I want this to be a loving com- 
munity, with a spirit of purpose in 
each individual and a sense of com- 
mitment and sacrifice. This does 
not mean sacrifices have not been 
made; for instance, our faculty 
salaries have not increased as fast 
as inflation. But a sense of commit- 
ment on campus can be conveyed 
to our benefactors, friends and 
alumni everywhere. 

The Chancellor has spoken 
.clearly of the need of a more 
Christian life style on this campus. 
I want to go on record in support 
of this. For instance, I share his 
view that excessive drinking is in- 
appropriate in this community. 

I believe also we need to be 
more concerned with responsible 
stewardship of all our resources. 
We must reduce waste of food in 
our dining facilities, greater care 
should be taken of property in our 
dormitories, and we must be con- 
cerned with the conservation of 
energy in all our facilities. 

Q. In your first weeks as Vice- 
chancellor, you have made frequent 
visits to faculty, student and com- 
munity gatherings. Can you keep 
this up through the year? 
A. I certainly hope to. For instance, 
I look forward to meeting as many 
students as possible, and will eat 
many of my meals in Gailor Hall. 

Q. How do you feel about student 
involvement in life at Sewanee? 

A. Much of the vitality of the Uni- 
versity community is a result of the 
involvement of the student body. I 
see them seriously engaged in their 
studies— and also participating in 
sports and in many student organi- 
zations. Communication on campus 
is enhanced by a responsible news- 
paper and radio station. 

I am pleased we still have an 
Honor Council at Sewanee. It is sig- 
nificant that our students are will- 
ing to give of themselves and their 
time for this work. Such organi- 
zations as the Order of Gownsmen 
and the Delegate Assembly offer 
important examples of outstanding 
student leadership. 

Another vital organization is 
the Student Christian Fellowship, 
which now comprises approximate- 
ly 10 per cent of our student body. 

Student leadership is one of 
the great strengths of the University, 
and I will make every effort to give 
these young people my support. 

Woods Named Chairman 

aware of the challenges that face 
the University of the South in the 
next several years. I will do my best 
to see that we meet them." 

Woods is the third member of 
his family to have held the Sewanee 
chairmanship. Both his father, the 
late J. Albert Woods, and his uncle, 
the late G. Cecil Woods, served as 
chairman of the board of regents. 
John Woods served as an alumni 
trustee before being elected a re- 
gent in 1973. 

John W. Woods, C'54, of Bir- 
mingham has been elected chairman 
of the University board of regents, 
succeeding Dr. Richard B. Doss, 
C'50, whose term has expired. 

Woods is president, chairman 
of the board and chief executive

He took his bachelor's degree 
in English at Sewanee, being a 
member of Sopherim and the 
Mountain Goat. He was president 
of the Order of Gownsmen, Sigma 
Alpha Epsilon and Blue Key honor 

After graduation he joined 
Chemical Bank, New York, be- 
coming an officer in 1959 and vice- 
president and head of the Southern 
Division in 1965, with three years 
out for Air Force service as a jet 

In 1969 he was elected presi- 
dent of the First National Bank of 
Birmingham, and in 1972 became 
vice-chairman of the board of First 
National Bank and chairman of Ala- 
bama Bancorporation. He is a di-

Schaefer Is 
Interim Provosf 

Dr. Arthur M. Schaefer, asso- 
ciate professor of economics at 
the University, has been named in- 
terim provost, replacing Thad N. 
Marsh, who resigned effective June 

The appointment was made by 
Robert M. Ayres, the acting vice- 

"From my own point of view, 
Sewanee is a place with amazing po- 
tential not yet realized," said Dr. 
Schaefer. "This is an active place, 
but we have not always been suc- 
cessful in coordinating those acti- 
vities so that they complement each 

In his new office, he said, he 
will be trying "to put the puzzle to- 
gether" in a sense and develop an 
overall plan, "so we are not work- 
ing at cross purposes." 

Dr. Schaefer pointed out that 
there has been a feeling for some 
time that the Sewanee Inn, for in- 
stance, is a separate function of the 
University and not related to other 
activities. He indicated that the Inn 
could serve an important service in 
the overall University mission, 
among other things drawing to the 
University people who might other- 
wise not have any contact with 

The Sewanee Academy, Dr. 
Schaefer said, is another example of 
lost potential. He noted that the 
new headmaster himself has ex- 
pressed a desire to give the Aca- 
demy an identity of its own while 
bringing it more into the overall 
University picture. 

"I have never taught at a place 
that had the devotion that this place 
has," Dr. Schaefer said. "I cannot 
put my finger on it, but it is there. 
But we have not mobilized that to 
the extent that it can be mobilized." 

Lacy New 
Hospital Head 

The new administrator of Emerald- 
Hodgson Hospital in Sewanee is 
Kenneth Ray Lacy of Laurel, 
Mississippi who has been an ad- 
ministrator of hospitals in Zachary, 
Louisiana and Virginia Beach. 

Mr. Lacy, 44, succeeds Dr. 
Russell Leonard, the University 
health officer, who has been serv- 
ing as interim administrator. 

He was the administrator of 
Lane Memorial Hospital and Nurs- 
ing Home at Zachary for five years 
and then opened the larger 276-bed 
Bayside Hospital at Virginia Beach. 
During his administration of Lane 
Memorial, it was designated a 
model hospital for the nation in its 
accreditation survey by the Joint 
Commission on the Accreditation 
of Hospitals. 

Mr. Lacy noted with pleasure 
that Emerald-Hodgson "is very well 
planned and equipped." He also 
complimented the staff of the 
thirty-four-bed Sewanee facility, 
which opened in its new location 
only last year. 

Doing the job, as he says, will 
mean using the talents of the Se- 
wanee community, "and we have a 
lot of talented people," Dr. Schae- 
fer said. 

Dr. Schaefer has been a mem- 
ber of the Sewanee faculty since 
1966, serving during that time on 
numerous committees, including 
the committee on committees, the 
benefits committee and the budget 
priorities committee. He also has 
been active in the American Asso- 
ciation of University Professors, 
of which he is president of the 
Sewanee Chapter and vice-president 
of the Tennessee Conference. 

A native of Philadelphia, Dr. 
Schaefer is an alumnus of the Uni- 
versity of Pennsylvania where he 
earned 'his undergraduate and grad- 
uate degrees in economics. 

After attending the Wharton 
School, he served four years as 
personnel and operations adminis- 
trator at the Girard Trust Company, 
one of the principal banks of Phila- 
delphia. In this capacity, he was 
concerned with staffing, salary, ad- 
ministration and operations analysis. 
In 1955 he left his position at Gi- 
rard to pursue an academic career. 

Prior to joining the University 
of the South faculty, Dr. Schaefer 
taught at Muhlenberg, Middlebury 
and Pomona Colleges. 


"A primary problem now is a 
shortage of physicians," he said. 
"We have initiated a very active 
physicians recruitment program 
through diocesan channels, through 
a national physicians' research 
group and through my personal 

A native of Laurel, Mississippi, 
Mr. Lacy was graduated from Jones 
County Junior College in Ellisville,

of Medical Technology, Street- 
Clinic Mercy Hospital in Vicksburg; 
Mississippi Southern College in Hat- 
tiesburg; Louisiana State University 
at New Orleans and at Baton Rouge; 
and Old Dominion University at 
Norfolk, Virginia. 

He also was on the visiting 
faculty of the Tulane School of 
Health Services Administration, 
teaching institutional planning, and 
was guest lecturer at the Old Do- 
minion University School of Hospi- 
tal Administration. 

In addition, Mr. Lacy has serv- 
ed on key committees of the

James H. Hill, C'77, has been hired 
as junior forester, to assist in the 
management of the 10,000-acre 
domain under the direction of Dr. 
Charles Baird, head of the depart- 
ment of forestry and geology. Hill 
was co-winner of the Allen Farmer 
award in forestry and graduated 
with honors. The Vice-Chancellor 
has established a forest manage- 
ment advisory committee, headed 
by the provost with Dr. Baird as 
secretary. Other members are Harry 
Dodd, University treasurer; Dr. 
Marcus Hoyer, assistant professor 
of geology; Dr. George Ramseur, 
professor of botany; Dr. Charles E. 
McGee, head of the USFS Silvicul- 
ture Laboratory in Sewanee; and 
Sewanee resident Richard Winslow, 
C'65, forester for Tennessee Con- 
solidated Coal Company. 

Geology: Following the Founders' Lead 

With the reorganization of the 
forestry department into the depart- 
ment of forestry and geology comes 
a reshuffling of space in the Snow- 
den Forestry Building as well. 

The forestry library is being 
moved to duPont to be consoli- 
dated with the main library; the 
drafting tables have been moved 
into the library space to make room 
for a ground floor geology lab; and 
two of the small offices will be oc- 
cupied by the German department 
this. year. A junior forester has been 
hired to assist in the management 
of the domain. 

The geology program envi- 
sioned by the founders of the 
University has finally gotten started, 
120 years after it was called for in 
the ordinances. Marcus C. Hoyer, a 
geologist with a Ph.D. from Ohio 
State, arrived this summer full of 
enthusiasm for his pioneering role. 
The first semester he is teaching 
two sections of physical geology, 
the introductory course, with 
twenty-five students each. The 
second semester he plans to teach 
the introductory course plus one in 
either historical geology or hydro- 
logy. Field trips will be part of the 

lab experience, and he arrived in 
Sewanee a month early to find out 
what places nearby would be good 
destinations for field trips. 

"An opportunity to initiate a 
program in this day and age does 
not come along very often, in a 
field as old as geology at least," 
says Dr. Hoyer. His specialties pre- 
viously have been very old or pre- 
Cambrian rocks, or those formed 
in the last four to ten million years 
(both of which types he will have 
to do without at Sewanee). 

"I haven't been a rock col- 
lector before," he said, "but I'm 
going to start." His dissertation 
reported on his studies of paleo- 
magnetism in silt and clay, and his 
master's thesis was on the Puget 
Peak avalanche in Alaska. How- 
ever, his discipline promises to shed 
valuable new light on Sewanee 
practicalities- -he is already half- 
way through the two-inch-thick 
engineering report on EPA recom- 
mendations for upgrading Sewanee 's 
sewage plant. 

Marc Hoyer was bom in Chi- 
cago, received his B.A. in geology 
from Augustana College and his M. 
S. from Arizona State University. 
He taught at Gustavus Adolphus 

Dr. Marcus Hoyer, geologist 

College in Minnesota and at Murray 
State University in Kentucky before 
coming to Sewanee. He held NDEA 
and Bownocker Fellowships, and 
did his Alaska field work under the 
auspices of USAROD and the Army 
Natick Laboratory. He was on the 
football and wrestling teams in col- 
lege, likes to jog, hike and back- 
pack. He is a member of the Geo- 

logical Society of America and the 
Geological Society of Kentucky; 
Sigma Xi, scientific research so- 
ciety; Sigma Gamma Epsilon, hon- 
orary earth science fraternity; and

master's degree in special education 
from Arizona State University.

Joining duPont and St. Luke's 



Even occasional visitors to the 
Jessie Ball duPont Library have no- 
ticed important changes since Tom 
Watson took over as librarian just 
over a year ago. Relocation of the 
reference department in the more 
spacious reading room heads the 

But more profound changes 
are in the offing. 

Plans have been drawn for 
completing and opening the third 
floor of duPont, which now looks 
like grandma's attic, somewhat en- 
larged, complete with odd pieces of 
furniture and boxes of old books. 

More significantly, the third 
floor will be the new home of The 
School of Theology Library, which 
will be moved from St. Luke's Hall, 
leaving its cramped maze of stacks 
and rooms for renovation into an 
administrative complex, classrooms, 
lecture hall and reading lounge. 

Grant proposals are ready to 
present to selected foundations in 
search of $500,000 to finance the 
joint project. Mr. Watson estimates 
the cost of the third-floor develop- 
ment at $350,000. Renovating the 
present St. Luke's facility would 
cost another $150,000. 

When completed, duPont not 
only will house The School of The- 
ology Library but will contain an 
enlarged and improved University 
archives section. The theology lib- 
rary will occupy the great majority 
of the third floor, however, with a 
reading room (much larger than 
the present one), three small-group 
study rooms, a lounge, two seminar 
rooms, nineteen enclosed faculty 
carrels and private office space for 
the reference staff. 

There will be stack space for 
110,000 volumes (150,000 maxi- 
mum) compared to the presently 
cramped space for 60,000 volumes 
at St. Luke's. Mr. Watson said the 
situation at the theology library has 
reached the point that to add a vol- 
ume it is almost necessary to take a 
volume off the shelf. And about 
6,000 volumes already have been 
moved from St. Luke's into duPont. 

The composition of the lib- 
rary collection, however, also will 
be changed with the move to du- 
Pont. Mr. Watson said the entire 
philosophy and religion collection 
of the University will be combined 
on the third floor, bringing signifi- 
cant benefit to both duPont and 
the theology library. 

The School of Theology col- 
lection will fill in some subject gaps, 
notably in sociology, which is not 
presently well represented at du- 
Pont. Also The School of Theology 
volumes on art, music and certain 
aspects of psychology will be 
blended into the larger duPont

their graduate or professional lib- 
raries, Mr. Watson said that practice 
seems to be changing. 

"It has never made particular- 
ly good sense on a campus of this 
size," he said. "It is inefficient and 

There has been resistance 
among theology students and some 
faculty members to moving the 
theology library. Seminarians have 
enjoyed the convenience of being 
able to visit the library between 
classes or avoid, during bad weather, 
the 150-yard walk to duPont. The 
traditional informality of St. Luke's, 
they fear, might be lost forever, 
along with the custom of giving 
many students keys and twenty- 
four-hour access to the library. 

The appearance of Mr. Watson 
last year apparently softened some 
of the early foreboding. And plans 
have proceeded resolutely under 
Mr. Watson; the Very Rev. Urban 
T. (Terry) Holmes, the School of 
Theology dean, and Edward Camp, 
who has been St. Luke's librarian 
for twenty years and associate Uni- 
versity librarian since last year. 

Mr. Camp is particularly sen- 
sitive to the fact that the theology 
library has been a rather exclusive 
gathering place for seminarians, 
with their common interests and 

"The proximity of the lib- 
rary and classrooms of course 
means the library can be personal," 
Mr. Camp said. "Undoubtedly some 
of the informality will be lost." 

But he points out that the 
building, dedicated in 1879, was 

not designed for the type of curri- 
culum, in its informal setting, used 

Mr. Camp indicated that long- 
range plans for the seminary and its 
library may have been changed by 
circumstances about the time he ar- 
rived because the annual purchase 
of books quickly doubled and then 
tripled. The shelves "long ago filled 
up," he said, and a search for addi- 
tional space was begun. 

To build a new wing for St. 
Luke's of comparable size to the 
duPont third floor would cost an 
estimated $1.5 million. Therefore, 
the duPont plan, Mr. Watson noted, 
has both fiscal and logistical ad- 
vantages for everyone. 

The greatly expanded space 
for St. Luke's will mean more space 
for college faculty and students. 
And the additional 120 student car- 
rels planned for duPont's third 
floor not only will accommodate 
the seminary students but will leave 
forty to fifty more carrels for stu- 
dents in the College of Arts and 

The new third-floor archives 
room will occupy only 12 per cent 
of the floor's 30,000 square feet of 
usable space. But the archives, a nat- 
ural adjunct to the School of The- 
ology Library, will be easily acces- 
sible to all students. Mr. Watson 
pointed out further that only 20 
per cent of the archives material can 
be reached presently from the 
second-floor archives rooms be- 
cause the bulk of the material is 
stored, and "stored inadequately", 
on the third floor. 

Under the new plans, a circular 
stairway will lead from the archives 

on the third floor into the present 
special collections and archives area 
on the second floor. The University 
archives will then have room for 
two special collections, both on the 
second floor — a rare-books room 
and the Sewaneeana Room for ma- 
terial specifically related to Se- 

Establishing a place for all rare 
books belonging to a library is most 
important, Mr. Watson said. A third 
of the rather large collection of rare 
books is stored on the open third 
floor. There are scores of leather- 
bound folio-sized volumes dating 
from the 17th and 18th centuries. 

They should be housed, Mr. 
Watson explained, in a place with 
proper climate control where the 
leather bindings can be preserved 
and properly exhibited. 

The University administration 
has determined that funding for the 
duPont-St. Luke's project shall come 
principally from foundations. Mr. 
Watson said he expects that differ- 
ent parts of the project will be 
acceptable to different foundations, 
and that, therefore, the entire pro- 
ject likely will not be financed by a 
single grant. 

The University Development 
Office has identified those founda- 
tions that would be amenable to at 
least a part of the project— whether 
involving archives, theological li- 
braries or general library develop- 
ment—and Mr. Watson and Dean 
Holmes are making contacts with 
foundation representatives this 


Lecture Series Gears Up 

Christopher Mayhew, a former 
member of the British Parliament 
and an expert on the Middle East, 
will speak in Sewanee at 8:15 p.m. 
October 27 in the Bishop's Com- 
mon lounge. 

Although the first speaker of 
the year attracted by the duPont 
Lectures Committee, Mr. Mayhew 
will not strictly speaking be the 
season's first duPont lecturer. The 
committee also is contributing to 
the appearance of actress and teach- 
er Katharine Sergava of New York 
City, who will present a lecture- 
demonstration on "The Actor's 
Art" September 29 in Guerry Hall. 
The acting group is making 
Sewanee its base for a week while 
traveling to area cities, such as 
Nashville and Huntsville, for per- 
formances. The student actors are 
led by their director, Katherine 

While not immediately evident, 
the emphasis of the duPont Lec- 
tures Committee is shifting away 
from the bigger (and much more 
expensive) names to speakers who 
can also talk with authority, and 
often with much more interest, 
on crucial issues of the day. 

The Rev. Don S. Armentrout, 
committee chairman, said this 
policy will mean more speakers this 
year. It involves spending $300 to 
$500 a speaker instead of $1,000 
to $1,750. 

In many cases the less ex- 
pensive speaker is better prepared, 
he said. 

An exception to the new 
policy, however, will probably be 
made in the case of the Michael 
Harrah Wood Memorial Lecture in 
the spring. For that lecture, a very 
well-known personage will be 

Last year the Wood lecturer 
was the medieval English scholar, 
Christopher Brooke, who spoke on 
campus during Sewanee 's Mediaeval 
Colloquium. . 

Dr. Armentrout noted that 
the committee attempts to cooper- 
ate with as many groups on campus 
as possible, contributing money 
here and there, often to depart- 
ments, to help defray the cost of 

The committee works with a 
budget of about $6,000. And to pre- 
pare for its own speakers, it seeks 
suggestions from all faculty mem- 
bers and departments. 

"We try to cover all disci- 
plines," Dr. Armentrout said. "We 
also like to have lectures of general 
interest and try not to duplicate the 
lecture . series of The School of 

To hold down travel costs, the 
committee also tries to "hook" 
notable speakers visiting neighbor- 
ing campuses. 

Another important practice of 
the lecture policy at Sewanee is 
that students become involved by 
taking lecturers to breakfast and 
lunch and by meeting them at the 
airports. Dr. Armentrout said the 
students who drove Andrew Young 
from Chattanooga to Sewanee last 
year had an unforgettable experi- 

Other members of the com- 
mittee are William M. Priestley, 
Anita S. Goodstein and Virginia 
Owen. In addition, another faculty 
member will be appointed this year 
to a three-year term, and three 
students— one from the seminary 
and two from the College— will be- 
come members. 

the Rev. C. FitzSimons All 

Squaring Off on Evangelism 

Two distinguished theologians have 
accepted invitations to speak in the 
DuBose Lectures October 19 at The 
School of Theology. 


Joint Ministry Studies 

"Helpful," "unique," "exact- 
ing," "beautiful" and "expensive" 
were some of the statements made 
by students of this summer's Joint 
Doctor of Ministry Program at 

The Rev. Patrick Murray of 
Fayetteville, Arkansas, who attend- 
ed as a special student, remarked 
about "the quality of the teachers— 
they know what they're doing." 
He also found quality in his fellow 
students and their discussion. 

In all there were thirty-six 
students attending classes from 
June 28 to July 28. Fourteen of 
them were going for their D.Min. 
degrees in the program, which takes 
three to five summers to complete 
under the joint sponsorship of the 
School of Theology in Sewanee and 
the Vanderbilt University Divinity 
School in Nashville. 

About half the students were 
accompanied to Sewanee by their 
families, and some spouses would 
occasionally visit classes. A course 
in marriage counseling, taught by 
Dr. Henry Myers, was well attended. 

The Rev. Charles Mclntyre, 
back from Vernon, Texas, was en- 
rolled as a special student, though 
he says he may pursue the D.Min. 
someday. He was among those 
temporary bachelors bunking on 
St. Luke's fourth floor and said of 
the climb, "My knees are getting 
in shape for the rest of the year." 
The Rev. Jim Horton of 
LaMarque, Texas, said of the pro- 
gram: "It's good R and R— I'm 
trying to promote it in my diocese 
among my clergy friends." 

Methodist, Lutheran and Chris- 
tian churches were represented in 
the student body, that included 

They are the Very Rev. O. C. 
Edwards, dean of Seabury-Westem 
Theological Seminary, and the Rev. 
C. FitzSimons Allison, rector of 
Grace Church, New York City. 

They are expected to take some- 
what contrasting positions on the 
question of evangelism and may 
present some fresh views about the 
direction the church may be moving 
on several theological questions. 

The convocation will conclude 
with a celebration of St. Luke's 
Day in St. Luke's Chapel at 4:30 
p.m. October 20. 

Religion and Myth 

The Rev. Francis X. Sullivan, 
a member of the Roman Catholic 
Society of Jesus (Jesuit), will talk 
on the role of myth in religion, 
at the annual Arrington Lectures 
November 14-18 at The School of 

The lectures will be from the 
viewpoint of the history of religion, 
anthropology and literature. Father 
Sullivan was a member of the fac- 
ulty last year at the Gregorian Uni- 
versity in Rome and will teach this 
year at Boston College. He is a poet 
of some distinction and is expected 
to read some of his work. 

interfaith chaplains. The Rt. Rev. 
Reginald Hollis, Episcopal bishop 
of Montreal, also attended. 

The program, which began in 
1974, had its first commencement 
May 29. The six original Doctor of 
Ministry graduates were: The Rev. 
Mercer Logan Goodson of Bogalusa, 
Louisiana; the Rev. Edward Meeks 
Gregory of Richmond, Virginia; the 
Rev. Robert Sturgis Kinney of 
Amarillo, Texas; the Rev. John 
McKee of Atlanta, Georgia; the Rev. 
William Stuart Pregnall of Alexan- 
dria, Virginia; and the Rev. Albert 
Clinton Walling of Houston, Texas.

Readers of the Sewanee News 
have expressed interest in out-of- 
class activities of Sewanee faculty, 
and since independent work is 
also of interest, though not always 
well known, to other faculty mem- 
bers, a list is compiled here. Of 
necessity only a part of the faculty 
is mentioned in this issue. 

George Core, associate pro- 
fessor of English and editor of the 
Sewanee Review, has several books 
"in progress", a review published, 
another almost out and an article 
on the drawing board. The books: 

(1) a study of new Southern critics, 

(2) a study of modem Southern 
literature, (3) an edition of John 
Crowe Ransom's letters, and (4) a 
study of literary agency and literary 
economics. The reviews (which are 
in addition to works in the Sewanee 
Review): (1) on Ransom and his 
colleagues, especially Allen Tate, 
in the summer issue of the Virginia 
Quarterly Review, and (2) on 
Patrick White's new novel, A Fringe 
of Leaves, in the fall Virginia Quar- 
terly. In addition Dr. Core is read- 
ing regularly for the University of 
Georgia Press and the University 
of Illinois Press, and he is a consult- 
ant for the National Endowment 
for the Humanities, which primarily 
involves evaluating research fellow- 
ships. Last year he finished a three- 
year stint as secretary-treasurer and 
then secretary of the Society for 
the Study of Southern Literature. 

Richard Duncan, an art in- 
structor, has work on display in 
several exhibitions, some on tour 
throughout the U. S. and Canada. 
Beginning this fall, October 8-27, 
Mr. Duncan will have a one-man ex- 
hibit at The Hunter Museum of 
Art, Chattanooga. He was the first 
artist selected for the inaugural 
exhibition in the new upper gallery 
of the museum. He wUl have an- 
other one-man show at the Genesis 
Gallery in Chattanooga this fall, 
and an exhibit in The University of 
the South 's St. Luke's Oratory next 
spring. Other projects include an 
edition of prints to be published 
soon by Platework Press of Atlanta, 
completion of a suite of copper 
etchings with the aid of a Ford 
Grant from the University, and con- 
struction of large print-canvas work. 
Mr. Duncan also will be studying 
the zone system of photography 
with Bradley Burns of the Hunter 
Art Museum for the next several 
months, for which he recently com- 
pleted a home-built darkroom. 

Charles Foreman, professor of 
biology, is currently writing a book 
on the thermodynamic aspects of 
ecology and economics. 

Frederick Croom, associate 
professor of mathematics, who is 
currently on sabbatical leave for the 
year, has completed work on an 
algebraic text titled Basic Concepts 
of Algebraic Topology, which 
should be published next spring. 
Dr. Croom is teaching a course at 
Louisiana State University where he 
also is collaborating with a col- 
league there in doing research in 
topology. His wife, Henrietta, an 
assistant professor in biology, is 
with him and is teaching micro- 
biology at LSU. 

Robert W. Lundin, professor 
of psychology, is the author of one 
of thirteen chapters of a book, 
Current Personality Theories, pub- 
lished in June by Peacock Pub- 
lishers. The chapter was titled 
"Behaviorism: Operant Reinforce- 
ment." Dr. Lundin plans to revise 
two of his previously published 

William M. Priestley, associate 
professor of mathematics, is work- 
ing on notes for an introductory 
calculus text. Two of his papers 
were recently published: "Sets 
Thick and Thin," in the American 
Mathematical Monthly, and "A 
Noncommutative Korovkin Theo- 
rem," in the Journal of Approx- 
imation Theory. 

Arthur Knoll, associate pro- 
fessor of history, has authored a 
210-page work, Togo Under Im- 
perial Germany, 1884-1914, a case 
study in colonial rule, which is be- 
ing published this fall. The project 
was aided by a grant from The 
University of the South. 

Kenneth R. Wilson Jones, pro- 
fessor of French, is on special leave, 
teaching half-time while completing 
a critical edition and translation of 
Latin poems by Joachim du Bellay. 

Gerald L. Smith, associate pro- 
fessor of religion, is taking a fall 
sabbatical leave to work in Sewanee 
on three projects: A work about 
Michael Polanyi, a standard biblio- 
graphy of Polanyi 's writings, and a 
study of Southern religion and cul- 

Harold J. Goldberg, assistant 
professor of history, is involved in 
research for an article on the Rus- 
sian anarchist, Sandomirsky. Dr. 
Goldberg is secretary-treasurer of 
the Tennessee Consortium for 
Asian Studies. 

A. Scott Bates, professor of 
French, recently completed a book 
of fables that has yet to be pub- 
lished, but a poem, "Hyena Song", 
has been published in the Southern 
Poetry Review anthology, Southern 
Poetry: The Seventies. Work is in 
progress on a book of animal poems, 

Charles R. Perry, instructor in 
history, has authored an essay in 
The Social Impact of the Telephone, 
published in June by the M.I.T. 
Press. The work, titled 'The Bri- 
tish Experience, 1876-1912", grew 
out of a talk Mr. Perry gave last 
year at the Bell Centennial Sym- 
posium at M.I.T. He also has writ- 
ten a review for The Journal of 
Economic History, which is appear- 
ing this fall. 

Edwin M. Stirling, associate 
professor of English, is on sabbati- 
cal leave this semester working on 
two projects— one on W. B. Yeats 
and the other on William Blake- 
involving research in Sewanee, 
Huntington Library in Southern 
California and the library at the 
University of Texas. He also is com- 
pleting an article on Gerard Manley 

James N. Lowe, associate pro- 
fessor of chemistry, is taking a sab- 
batical leave this year to carry out 
research at the University of Illinois, 
where he is receiving special assis- 
tance. Published recently were two 
articles, which were a result of re- 
search in biochemistry at Davis, 
California where Dr. Lowe has 
spent four summers. During that 
time he also co-authored a text, 
Biochemical Reaction Mechanisms. 

Claud R. Sutcliffe, associate 
professor of political science, has 
authored an article, "The Pre- 
dictive Power, of Measures of 
Individual Modernity: A Critique 
of the Paradigm of Modernization", 
which appeared in the summer 
issue of Comparative Political Stud- 
ies. A second article, "Education 
as a Dependent Variable in the Pro- 

cess of Modernization, " is expected 
to be published in the February is- 
sue of the Journal of Social Psycho- 

William J. Garland, associate 
professor of philosophy, will have 
an essay of his included in a book, 
Reflections on Whitehead, to be 
published shortly by Fordham Uni- 
versity Press. The essay, "The Ul- 
timacy of Creativity," first appear- 
ed in the Southern Journal of Phi- 
losophy in 1969. Dr. Garland also 
has presented papers recently to 
the Southern Society for Philo- 
sophy and Psychology, the Society 
for the Study of Process Philo- 
sophy and the Pacific Division 
meeting of the American Philo- 
sophical Association. 

A paper by George S. Ramseur, 
professor of botany, has been pub- 
lished by the National Park Service 
in its series of Management Reports. 
The paper is titled "Secondary Suc- 
cession in the Spruce-Fir Forests 
of the Great Smoky Mountains Na- 
tional Park." 

The Very Rev. Urban T. 
(Terry) Holmes, dean of The School 
of Theology, spent the month of 
July teaching 1^he theory of minis- 
try at the Vancouver School of 
Theology, Canada. 

The Rev. Marion Hatchett, 
associate professor of liturgies, lec- 
tured throughout August at St. 
George's College, Jerusalem. 

The Rev. Henry L. Myers is on 
leave from his associate professor's 
position to serve a year on the staff 
of St. Stephen's Church, Edina, 



Unusual Summer 

Dr. George Ramseur conducted 
what was probably the most un- 
usual and interesting class of the 
summer school. It began the day 
after commencement and ended the 
day before the rest of the summer 
school started, and carried three 
hours credit. 

A earful of botany students 
was selected to accompany him on 
a trip to the North Carolina coast, 
visiting areas of unique vegetation 
along the way. 

"You never know what students 
will think is significant," said Dr. 
Ramseur. They were excited about 
an oriental yellow poplar growing 
in the arboretum in Chapel Hill — 
this is significant in plant geo- 
graphy. They were also interested 
at seeing bear oak, which occurs 
only in a few places in North 
Carolina. " 

The group studied plant com- 
munities on a ''transect from the 
Atlantic Ocean to the Cumberland 
Plateau, visiting Kings Mountain, 
Hanging Rock, the Yadkin River 
floodplain, granite outcrops, sand 
dunes, Roan Mountain, Mount 
Mitchell and the Balsams. 

Students participating were 
William Todd Bender, Beth Candler, 
Jeri Lynn Gibson, James P. Groton, 
and Elizabeth McClatchy. 

Oxford Studies 

Twenty-six Sewanee students parti- 
cipated this summer in the British 
Studies at Oxford program, spon- 
sored by the Southern College Uni- 
versity Union. 

Joseph D. Cushman, professor 
of history, and John V. Reishman, 
associate professor of English, led 
the Sewanee contingent and parti- 
cipated in the six-weeks program 
that included lectures by outstand- 
ing British scholars and administra- 

The program covered the Vic- 
torian and Edwardian period of 
English history and culture. 

Action at Bairnwick 

Bairnwick, the School of The- 
ology's conference and retreat cen- 
ter, has experienced a gentle flow 
of guests all summer and has sched- 
uled several conferences for the fall. 

The Alabama Training Net- 
work held a Design Skills workshop 
August 28-September 2 to help 
those who plan and conduct meet- 
ings, classes, conferences, and other 
learning events. They will have a 
Consultation Skills workshop the 
week of November 13-18. Its flyer 
states, - "Many institutions in our 
society are moving toward a new 
style of working with people: from 
directing to enabling." The work- 
shop will help its participants 
change from "directors" to "con- 
sultants." The Anglican-Lutheran 
Dialogue is expected to fill the 
house September 21-24. 

The Rev. Richards Beekman 
of San Francisco, an icon painter 
and designer of church appoint- 
ments, will be artist in residence 
during the month of October. 

Theological Education by 
Extension is now reaching about 
1,000 people in 26 dioceses and is 
expanding into Australia. 

French House Gets Dictionary 

A three-volume French-Eng- 
lish dictionary was presented to the 
French House by Tom Watson, Uni- 
versity librarian, at a spring meeting 
of Le Cercle Francais. "This is part 
of our program to promote the 
academic interests of students and 
faculty inside and outside the lib- 
rary building," Mr. Watson said. 
"The French House is a significant 
part of the foreign language pro- 
gram, and it is trying to build a 
basic working library of its own to 
have in the house." 

Matthews Wins Internship 

Kimberly Sue Matthews of 
Lake Wales, Florida, who was grad- 
uated cum laude from the Univer- 
sity this past spring with a major in 
Russian, has won a student intern- 
ship with the Carnegie Endowment 
for International, Peace. She is 
working this fall in the Carnegie 
Endowment's Washington office 
doing research ori U.S. foreign pol- 
icy and participating in group dis- 
cussions with journalists, govern- 
ment officials, scholars and Con- 
gressional staff members. 

Isotopes License Renewed 

The University of the South 
radioisotopes laboratory has had its 
license renewed for ten years by the 
Tennessee Health Department. The 
University is licensed to have twenty 
different types of radioactive ma- 
terials, though Dr. Frank Hart, asso- 
ciate professor of physics, said 
there may be only six or seven used 
at the University in any one year. 

Rabbi Falk at Sewanee 

Rabbi Randall Falk of Nashville 
will again teach a course this fall at 
the School of Theology. The course, 
titled "Judaism in Jesus' Times," is 
sponsored by the Jewish Chautau- 
qua Society, the educational pro- 
ject of the National Federation of 
Temple Brotherhoods. 

Rabbi Falk completed his 
Master of Hebrew Letters degree at 
Hebrew Union College-Jewish Insti- 
tute of Religion. He also holds an 
M.A. and a D.D. from Vanderbilt 
University as well as an honorary 
D.D. from Hebrew Union. 

The rabbi is spiritual leader of 
The Temple in Nashville. He is cur- 
rently serving as president of the 
Nashville Council of Community 
Services; president of the Tennessee 
Children's Home Society; vice- 
president of the Nashville Associa- 
tion of Rabbis, Priests and Ministers; 
a member of the Human Relations 
Commission of Metropolitan Nash- 
ville-Davidson County; and a mem- 
ber of the board of directors of the 
Nashville chapter of the National 
Conference of Christians and Jews. 

In recognition of his achieve- 
ments, he was named "Clergyman 
of the Year" by the Nashville chap- 
ter of Religious Heritage of Ameri- 

Hospital Auxiliary Cited 

The Emerald-Hodgson Hospi- 
tal Auxiliary has been awarded a 
special citation of appreciation for 
its outstanding efforts toward the 
hospital building fund. The organ- 
ization pledged $22,500 and paid 
off the pledge within two years. 

Club Operated 
by Committee 

The Sewanee Golf and Tennis 
Club is being operated this fiscal 
year by a specially formed Sewanee 
committee under contract from the 

The committee, headed by H. 
Malcolm Owen, has announced its 
intentions to maintain the facilities 
in first class condition and make a 
concerted effort to eliminate the 
deficit which attended the previous 
operation. Membership fees already 
have been increased.

Ayres to Speak 

Robert M. Ayres, Jr., the acting 
Vice-Chancellor, will address the an- 
nual Founders' Day Convocation 
at noon October 10 in All Saints' 

All three units of the Univer- 
sity will come together for prayer 
and singing. The Woods Leadership 
Awards will also be presented. 


Another "best ever" Sewanee 
Summer Music Center has con- 
cluded, with a record-breaking en- 
rollment of over 200 students— a far 
cry from the original thirty stu- 
dents twenty-one years ago. 

An older group this year 
(some of them have grown older 
with the Center) meant more play- 
ing experience and better per- 
formances. The student concerto 
program was praised by members of 
the audience as one of the most ex- 
citing of the season, but Martha 
McCrory, director of the Center 
and its chief press agent, assures us 
that each concert was a highlight in 

Violinist Kishiko Suzumi thrill- 
ed audiences at each of her drama- 
tic performances, receiving standing 
ovations and flowers. The season 
was further brightened by guest ap- 
pearances of pianists Julian Martin 
and Paul Tardif, violinist Thomas 
Moore, flutist Mark Thomas, and 
violist Henry Barrett. Guest con- 
ductors were Amerigo Marino of the 
Birmingham Symphony, prolific 
composer Crawford Gates of the 
Rockford Symphony, Kenneth 
Moore of Oberlin and Gary Parks of 

An evidence of the Center's 
growth is the fact that in residence 
this year were a piano tuner, a 
woodwind repairman and a string 



It Does Not Happen by Itself' 

The opening this year of The Sewa- 
nee Academy is perhaps unlike the 
start of any year since it was estab- 
lished in 1868. 

With a new headmaster, a new 
director of admissions and a pledge 
of renewed support from the Board 
of Regents and the acting vice- 
chancellor, it is as if the Academy 
had figuratively taken a deep breath 
and plunged into a new era. 

The Rev. Donald Roderick 
(Rod) Welles, Jr., the headmaster, 
already has begun guiding the Acad- 
emy toward two general goals: 
closer involvement with the College 
and The School of Theology and 
development of a broader academic 
and non-academic curriculum. The 
faculty is doing a good job, he said, 
teaching the basic academic sub- 
jects, and that part of the program 
is extremely important. But there 
is potential for more, he adds. 

To Mr. Welles it is that unique 
potential that sets The Sewanee 
Academy apart. Private boarding 
schools have certain problems in 
common, and Mr. Welles, as he says, 
came to Sewanee with his "eyes 
wide open." But the Academy of- 
fered an opportunity and challenge. 

"I was nine years with board- 
ing schools, five years in day 
schools, and I chose to return to a 
boarding school," he said. 

Coming to the Academy also 
provided him an opportunity to re- 
turn to active ministry and find a 
home in a rural setting. 

Mr. Welles sees the decline in 
enrollment, a common problem 
among most boarding schools, as 
having occurred at the Academy be- 
cause some great potential resources 
were forgotten. Problems have 
arisen because of a loss of identity 
at the Academy, beginning with the 
elimination of the military program 
in 1971 that resulted in a loss of 
alumni support. Mr. Welles also 
recognized an isolation from the 
College and the surrounding com- 

Nevertheless, he says, the 
"strong, professional, academic 
faculty, deeply committed to the 
Academy" combined with the 
mountain setting and college en- 
vironment offer unique avenues to 
development of a strong prepara- 
tory program. 

Mr. Welles said he plans to join 
the efforts of members of the 
Alumni Board, led by Joe Gardner, 
A'67, who have shown a desire to 
gather support from all alumni for 
the Academy program. 

"Our commitment is to the 
whole student," said Mr. Welles, 
"to the growth and development of 
the whole student. 

I ildffll 
The Rev. Roderick Welles, headmaster, and Edward Harrison, C'75, admissions director 

"I define curriculum as every- 
thing happening at a boarding 
school— seven days a week, twenty- 
four hours a day. What goes on out- 
side the classroom is as important 
as what goes on inside the class- 

"I want to build a non-aca- 
demic program into something that 
is exciting and enjoyable," he said. 

Mr. Welles hopes to see expan- 
sion of the curriculum in the arts- 
visual art, music and drama — which 
is not now well supported with 
funds, space or time. In a program 
that would expand to duPont 
Library on the College campus, he 
hopes to help build the library re- 
sources of the Academy. Under the 
growing program, Academy stu- 
dents also will have opportunities 
to join non-academic activities, 
such as the already popular rock 
and mountain climbing with Jim 
Scott, Academy chemistry instruc- 
tor who is a member of the Swiss 
Alpine Club. 

"We already have an excellent 
program in math, the sciences, Eng- 
lish and languages," he said. "But 
I am encouraging the members of 
our faculty to get together with 
their opposite numbers in the Col- 
lege to collaborate on our programs. 
The College faculty has shown a 
willingness to do this, and I'm going 
to take them up on it." 

Mr. Welles said he also will 
give stronger support to physical 
education and the instructional 
sports. The interscholastic program, 
he said, has been handled well and 
already is strong. 

Maintaining that the Academy 
"cannot be all things to all stu- 
dents," Mr. Welles and Ed Harrison, 
C'75, the new admissions director, 
with help from the faculty, have 
established narrower, more clearly 
defined admissions standards. There 
has been a problem in recent years 

of the faculty having to deal with 
too wide a range of academic abil- 
ities among the students. 

"We will not cheat a student 
by enrolling him when we know he 
cannot do the work," Mr. Welles 

In addition, he said, the Aca- 
demy is not a school for problem 
students sent by their families. 

"We want students who want 
to come," he said. 

Consequently Sewanee Aca- 
demy is not full this year, though 
enrollment is about the same as 
last year's 175, counting day stu- 
dents. Nevertheless, the Academy 
can house 200 students and com- 
pared to present figures, add an 
almost unlimited number of day 

The tuition for day students 
was lowered in July from $2,250 a 
year to $1,450 in a move to in- 
crease enrollment from the sur- 
rounding communities. 

"We would like to have a 
larger candidate pool than we have. 
We also would like to have more 
girls in the candidate pool and more 
ninth and tenth graders," he said. 

Mr. Welles does not delude 

"Sewanee Academy has some 
real strengths. But we have to work 
with the strengths and work very 
hard," he said. "It does not happen 
by itself." 

Mr. Welles comes to Sewanee 
from Locust Valley, New York 
where he has been director since 
1972 of the Upper School at the 
Portledge School. The Portledge 
School is a eollege preparatory 
school emphasizing individualized 
instruction and independent study. 

A native of Wilmington, Del- 
aware, Mr. Welles was graduated 
from Hotchkiss School and Yale 

University and earned his M. Div. 
Degree from the Episcopal Theo- 
logical school in Cambridge, 

He has served in a variety of 
positions with the church, private 
schools and foundations. 


Heads Admissions 

Edward H. Harrison, Jr., C'75, has 
been appointed director of admis- 
sions for The Sewanee Academy, 
replacing Grant LeRoux, who re- 
signed to enter theological seminary. 

Mr. Harrison will continue 
in his position as assistant dir- 
ector of admissions for the 
University's College of Arts and 
Sciences. He has been con- 
centrating since July on ad- 
missions work for the Academy 
but will combine emphasis on 
both divisions as he travels for 
the University through the 
academic year. 

Optimistic about the potential 
at the Academy, Mr. Harrison 
said he sees the school emerging 
as a well-defined preparatory school 
in a civilian context, with a military 

Along with the new headmaster, 
he favors a closer identity of the 
Academy with the College. That 
emphasis is clearly consistent with 
his combined admissions work and 
his personal collegiate bearing. 

While a student at the Uni- 
versity, Mr. Harrison was a member 
of the Order of Gownsmen, assis- 
tant volunteer fire chief and presi- 
dent of his fraternity, Phi Delta 
Theta. He is the son of the Rev. and 
Mrs. Edward Harrison, Sr. of Pensa- 
cola and is married to a 1977 Se- 
wanee graduate, the former Teresa 


One of the most enthusiastic participants in the Academy's spring Field Day was 
Leland Kennerly. With him are Ron Greiser and Ken Daniels. 


Because of the Sewanee Aca- 
demy's strong drama club, The 
Academy Players, seventeen stu- 
dents have qualified for charter 
membership in the International 
Thespian Society, an organization 
that promotes theater in secondary 
schools around the world. 

Under the direction of Frank 
Thomas, Jr., students explore the 
fields of make-up, direction and 
stage management, as well as acting. 
Max Cornelius guides students in 
the intricacies of lighting and sound 
effects for the two full-length pro- 
ductions that are given annually. 

From the class of 1977 stu- 
dents who have qualified for charter 
membership are Bill Downs of 
Little Rock, Arkansas; Tom Flood 
of Louisville, Kentucky; Fletcher 
Thompson of Mobile, Alabama; 
Eban Goodstein, Kathryn Ramseur 
and Anne Cross, of Sewanee; Suzy 
Boggild of South Pittsburg, Tennes- 
see; Kathy Fox of Columbia, South 
Carolina; Debbie Chadwick of 
Chattanooga, Betsy Goodwin of 
Greenville, Mississippi; Richard 
Fender of Huntsville, Alabama; 
Andy Hunter of Guntersville, Ala- 
bama; and Anita Goss of Crossville, 
Tennessee. • 

Members from the class of 
1976 are Robert Ellis, New Orleans, 
Louisiana; Clyde Westrom, Monroe, 
Louisiana; David Henton, Lubbock, 
Texas; and Deirdre Mclntyre, Ver- 
non, Texas. 

As a result of their awakened 
interest in drama, two of our '73 
graduates have pursued theater in 
college. Jonathan Stephens and 
Anne Camp have been with Cla- 
rence Brown Productions on the 
University of Tennessee, Knoxville 
campus doing technical theater and 
stagecraft. Currently, Jonathan is in 
Knoxville working on the Mary 

Martin-Anthony Quayle production, 
Do You Turn Somersaults? which is 
due to have its pre-Broadway run at 
the Kennedy Center in Washington 
beginning August 18. 

Summer Academy Campus 

The delicate notes of a violin 
solo replaced the throb of country 
rock in Gorgas dormitory this sum- 
mer. Dr. and Mrs. James Marable, 
violin-cello team from Knoxville, 
taught and chaperoned 32 pre- 
teenaged youngsters in a stringed 
instrument camp. Barbara Marable, 
whom I found in the hallway of 

Gorgas, violin under chin, had no- 
thing but praise for the facilities 
and for Sewanee Academy. 

"Marvelous," she said. 

Another summer migration oc- 
curred in July when the Chatta- 
nooga Boys' Choir came to rehearse 
Christmas music and to study music 
theory for a week. Tennessee 
Avenue dwellers awakened to their 
singing as the boys walked to break- 

The sound of music has faded 
away, as I write, replaced by the 
crisp sound of a key fitting into a 
lock to open a dormitory door. It's 
August and students will soon ar-

Where Grads Are Now 

England Named 
Associate Dean 

Edward V. England, C'72, a mem- 
ber of the English faculty at the 
Academy for the past four and a 
half years, has been named asso- 
ciate dean of students. He succeeds 
James Banks, who resigned to be- 
come assistant headmaster at Christ 
School in Arden, N. C. 

New Coach, 
Faculty Named 

Roger R. Ross, C'75, has returned 
to the mountain this fall to teach 
Spanish and coach at the Academy. 

He will be head basketball 
coach, taking over for Doug Pas- 
chall, who continues to teach 
English in the College, and will 
assist with football and baseball. 

For the past two years, Coach 
Ross has taught Spanish and 
coached at St. James' School in St. 
James, Maryland. He took over a 
freshman team that had not won a 
game in three years and guided the 
squad to four victories his first 
year. He spent this past summer 
working on his master's degree at 
Middlebury College, Connecticut. 

The Academy basketball team 
will open a sixteen-game schedule 
at Webb School in Bell Buckle No- 
vember 15. 

Two other new instructors at 
the Academy are Kenneth M. 
Schuppert, Jr., C'77, of Decatur, 
Alabama, and Lawrence T. Williams 
of Montgomery. 

Mr. Schuppert, who majored 
in economics and minored in math 
at the University, will teach math 
during the leave of Robert H. Wood. 
While a Sewanee student, he was 
captain of the golf team for three 

Mr. Williams, a 1974 graduate 
of Huntingdon College, will teach 
biology. In addition to doing grad- 
uate work at Auburn University, he 
has worked as a nursing assistant 
and a hospital emergency-room

Impressions from 

by Edith Whitesell, SC'77 

Learning at the 
Alumni Summer 
College ranged from 
computer program- 
ming to kayak 

I am an instant alumna. I achieved 
that status not by twenty years of 
working on the alumni magazine, 
pondering alumni names in various 
capacities, baking cookies for them 
on their occasionally rocky road 
toward becoming alumni or noting 
with gratitude their subsequent 
contributions to alma mater, but by 
being a full-fledged, though time- 
truncated, participant in the 
Alumni Summer College. 

I only had two days, but full 
attendance has been my ambition 
since the College's inception. Along 
with the Sewanee Summer Music 
Center and wild blueberries in the 
same season it dangled the richest 
rewards I knew of for being in Se- 
wanee at a certain time. Plus, of 
course, all the built-in dividends 
that we who have been privileged 
to live here have never been stupid 
enough to take for granted. Space 
and trees and heights, the young 
to look at and the old to listen to, 
the simple life in a daily rub with 
complex thought. 

The first Summer College ses- 
sion did it, and the others sustained 
it. Made us— no, me, since I am no 
longer the editor — feel like an 
alumna. First off, it was listening 
to Gilbert Gilchrist in his primary 
capacity as a teacher and under- 
standing first-hand the esteem in 
which alumni have held him. He 
talked about political corruption, 
and his genial approach, his smooth 
hard invitation to look at what 
corruption is made of, sheared 
away eant. (What is corruption and 
what is "honest graft"? If a senator 
calls the IRS to ask it not to press 
the audit of one of his campaign 
Workers, is that corruption? Is it 
'he use of public office for private 
Sain at the expense of the public 
wterest? Whose idea of the public 
'nterest is to prevail? Was Nixon 

corrupt?) Everybody got in the act 
and it was a lively act. I was re- 
called to the heady days when 
college first came into freshman 
view and the stale dogma of the 
high school textbooks gave way to 
the most searching intelligences in 
our society looking at things as 
they are. 

The big difference was that 
this time around the lively, season- 
ed intelligences included those of 
the students and each session ended 
in a rocket burst of points of view 
lighting the way to future explora- 
tion. In the relatively small group 
were a lawyer, two physicians, a 
chemical engineer, a theologian, a 
retired Air Force officer. The last- 
mentioned had had no previous 
experience of Sewanee at all but 
he, like me, was an instant alumnus. 
Unlike me, who had wielded a 
reporter's pencil mostly in silence 
all these years and could not change 
completely, he brought a new voice 
into each discussion. 

The other Alumni College fac- 
ulty members attending all sessions 
jogged their colleagues, too, and 
they did not hesitate in matters 
outside their disciplines but within 
their interests to become participat- 
ing students. When Robert Cassidy 
of the department of religion intro- 
duced varying moralities on abor- 
tion, Scott Bates, French professor 
who was to speak on film, brought 
up some hard questions on the 
dilemma in India and the state's 
interference with individual deter- 
mination in what it considered 
the long-term interest of society. 

Another variant from the under- 
graduate experience was comfort. 
Lectures and discussions— often 
interwoven — were held in the main 
lounge of the Bishop's Common. 
Easy sitting, cool air, indulgence 

for the eye in Maury McGee's decor 
which makes of the lounge a large 
and lovely living room. I, for one, 
am ready to accept some compen- 
sations for age and leave the rigors 
of Walsh classrooms to the young. 

We got some of that, though, 
too, when the group repaired to a 
classroom in Woods Labs where 
there was a computer terminal for 
Marcia Clarkson's introduction to 
that pervasive incursion in our 
lives. She started us off with a 
questionnaire that showed us, 
young as the formidable instrument 
is, we had had time to pluck a 
bunch of misconceptions about it 
from the common "knowledge." 
Did you know that the cost of 
computers had gone down from 
millions in their beginnings to, 
currently, $20 for a basic compo- 
nent? That there are hundreds of 
computer languages? Suzanne 
Tomlinson played dirty pool by 
getting all the questions right— she 
is the chemical engineer. 

Mrs. Clarkson went all-out to 
ease the formidability of the instru- 
ment by insisting that everyone at 
least touch it. She put on a game 
program, which she said had sup- 
planted bridge as the Number One 
student means to avoid study. 
Marcia having answered the ma- 
chine's question by telling it that 
our team was to be called the 
"Tigers" and its, the "Turkeys," 
it printed out on the terminal 
screen, "Fine. Now the Tigers need 
a quarterback (that's you, son)." 
■Inevitably there was comment on 
the computer's male chauvinism, 
it not having anticipated the 
instructor to be a lissome young 
dark-eyed female. 

And then, back in the lounge, 
Harold Goldberg in one brief lec- 
ture not only covered with an 
appearance of ease the whole his- 
tory of the rise of communism in 
China but managed to make it 
graphic and gripping. His masterly 
presentation answered an unex- 
pressed question of old-timers, "Do 
they make professors like they used 
to?" Comparisons, as Dogberry 
said, are odorous, but we venture 
that none of the fondly recalled 
giants of early days was more 
skilled in the professor's art than 
Dr. Goldberg, now entering his 
fourth year in the College's history 

An "I was there" sense came 
into the discussion when John 


Franklin, the lawyer, confirmed 
Nationalist foot-dragging in World 
War II expounded by the lecturer 
and the Communist armies' readi- 
ness to help downed Americans, 
from his own Air Force experience 
in that theater. He also shared, with 
sadness, a current article on the 
Communist rigidity once in power, 
with which Dr. Goldberg expressed 

Another newcomer to the fac- 
ulty displayed with just pride was 
Tom Watson, University librarian. 
He began his rundown of censor- 
ship by explaining that director Dr. 
Edwin Stirling had asked him to 
talk about something concerning 
libraries, but not anything dull. 
Mr. Watson could not be dull if 
he tried, for he is one of the happy 
few who know that libraries are 
the most exciting spots on earth. 

All of this spilled over not only 
into the scheduled discussions but 
through lunch at Gailor (would you 
believe a salad bar now?) and, we 
dare say, far into the night for 
those privileged to be staying in 
Malon Courts dormitory together. 
I wonder what they talked about 
on the hikes? 

The faculty lunched with the 
students each day. Confirmed was 
the Sewanee Siren's' selection of 
quotes on the Alumni College: 

One conversation with a wise man is 

better than ten years' study of books. 

—Chinese Proverb 

Wise, cultivated genial conversation is the 
last flower of civilization. 

—Emerson, "Woman" 

Conversation is the laboratory and 
workshop of the student. 

—Emerson, "Society and Solitude" 

Next year I'm going to attend the 
whole thing or bust. 

Summer Refresher 

It is time to make plans for the 
1978 Sewanee Summer Seminars 
open to all alumni and friends of 
the University next July 9-15. 

Edwin Stirling, seminars di- 
rector, said the name has been 
changed from Alumni College to 
emphasize that non-alumni also 
may attend. He noted that the 
seminars provide an opportunity 
for old friends and alumni to meet 
for a week in Sewanee. 

Morning lectures and seminars 
will cover contemporary interests 
in literature, biology, history, civil 
liberties, Latin American politics 
and music. The faculty is being 

Afternoons will be relatively 
free for reading, golf, tennis, or- 
ganized hikes or simply personal re- 

Sewanee Summer Music Cen- 
ter also will be under way and is a 
major attraction. 

The cost is $210 per parti- 
cipant, $130 for a non-participant, 
such as a child, and $85 for tuition 
only. More information may be ob- 
tained by writing Dr. Stirling at the 




Shirley Majors has entered his 
twenty-first grid season as Tiger 
head coach on a down (and slightly 
sour) note. Nineteen lettermen are 
gone from last year's squad that 
finished 5-4, and not many seniors 
are back to take their places. 

Approaching the opener with 
Hampden-Sydney September 17, he 
and the Sewanee staff were faced 
with getting twenty to twenty-five 
freshmen ready for the trenches. 
That violates certain Majors prin- 

"I don't like it," said Coach 
Majors, always careful with a 
player's confidence. "But we've 
got to be there for the opening 
kickoff, and we'll be there." 

There are bright spots, thank 
Heaven. Grayson Hall (205), a 
Fort Payne, Alabama junior, is back 
at linebacker and will also play full- 
back. (Playing both offense and de- 
fense is taken in stride at Sewanee.) 

Kelley Swift (215), a Nashville 
junior, helps anchor the offensive 
line at tackle. Still another junior 
starter is Nino Austin of Tampa, 
who lacked only two pass recep- 
tions to break a single-season school 
record when he was hurt against 
Principia last season. 

The seniors include Barry Ray 
(200) of Chattanooga, who may be 
moved from running back to the 
offensive line because of his size 
and blocking ability; Burney 
Durham of Gallatin, Tennessee, an 
aggressive defensive end, and Allen 
Ehmling of Hendersonville, who has 
started at comerback for two years. 

Still other top prospects include 
juniors David Evans of the Canal 
Zone, a cornerback, and Jimmy 
Spears of Winter Garden, Florida, a 
running back and punter; a pair 
of sophomore defensive linemen, 
Scott Anderson of Columbus, Ohio 
and Mike Marchetti of Nashville; 
a sophomore offensive lineman, 
John Saclarides of Tarpon Springs, 
Florida; and Joe Shults of Decatur, 
Texas, who stepped in to replace 
Austin ably at the end of last year. 

The quarterback to replace 
graduated Ron Swymer? With the 
start of practice, Coach Majors 
knew only it would be one of four 

Nevertheless, sage Sewanee fans 
don't count the Tigers out too early. 
Underdogs much of the time last 
season, Sewanee still won the 
College Athletic Conference Champ- 
ionship and finished with a winning 
season by defeating Washington 
University 26-15 in the final game. 

Cross Country 

Coach Dennis Meeks is largely re- 
building a cross country squad that 
will center around junior Felton 

About Half Of Sewanee's 600 
College Men Will Try Out For 
Varsity Teams This Year 

Wright of Tallahassee, Florida. 
Coach Meeks said Wright should be 
one of the top runners in the con- 
ference this year. 

After early tentative engage- 
ments, Sewanee will get to the meat 
of the schedule— the Bryan College 
Invitational, October 1; Centre 
College, October 7; Southwestern, 
October 15, and Vanderbilt, Octo- 
ber 22, with perhaps one or two 
other meets to be added. 

The Tennessee Intercollegiate 
Athletic Conference Championships 
will be October 29, in Nashville ; the 
College Athletic Conference Cham- 
pionships will be at Southwestern 
November 5— then the NCAA, No- 
vember 12. 


About sixty candidates were on 
hand for the opening of soccer 
practice in August, and with seven- 
teen lettermen returning, the Tigers 
are expected to see an improvement 
on last season's 2-9-1 record. 
A seventeen- or eighteen- match 
schedule hopefully will close with a 
victory in the Tennessee Intercol- 
legiate Soccer Association Tourna- 
ment October 25-29. Peter Walter, 
C'67, returns as head coach. 


The Sewanee cagers will open the 
new season at home November 29, 
against Trevecca. 

Coach Don Millington is wel- 
coming back all five starters from 
last year's largely inexperienced 
squad that closed with a 9-15 
record. Five of the losses were by 
five points or less. 

A top returnee is Harry Cash, 
a senior center from Chattanooga, 
who was named to the all-district 
team last year and was one of 
sixty-one Division III All-America

Field Hockey 

Sewanee's field hockey team is 
after a second consecutive unde- 
feated regular season and another 
regional tournament berth this fall. 
Dr. Kevin Green's charges 
pulled off victories last year over 
such teams as Vanderbilt, Tennes- 
see, Centre College, Transylvania 
and Agnes Scott. The schedule 
looks much the same this year, 
concluding with a triangular match 
with UT and Vanderbilt October 28- 
29 in Sewanee before the regional. 


The women's tennis squad is play- 
ing a four-match fall schedule. Pam 
Lampley, women's athletic director 
and coach, is putting much of her 
hopes for an undefeated season on 
Lynn Jones of Birmingham and 
Amy St. John of Mobile. 


Women's volleyball is into its 
fourth season as a varsity sport at 
Sewanee. And Laurence Alvarez, 
part-time coach and quick-change 
artist from his planning and budget- 
ing office, expects to have several 
girls back who lettered last year. 
Interest in volleyball is grow- 
ing at Sewanee, he says. That may 
mean more victories by state tour- 
nament action November 11-12 at 
Milligan College.

Horseback Riding 

Once again the University 
Equestrian Center is offering be- 
ginner, intermediate and advanced- 
level instruction in riding skills to 
the community, with physical ed- 
ucation credit possible for at least 
two lessons a week. 

Special courses include dres- 
sage, stadium jumping and cross- 
country jumping under John Tan- 
sey, director of the center, and 
Mrs. Jean Raulston. Mrs. Raulston 
pointed out that riders have the 
benefit of miles of well-maintained 
trails through the 10,000-acre Uni- 
versity reservation. 

The center attracted 30 young- 
sters, from nine to 25 years old, to 
its recent summer riding camp. 

Students this semester will be 
participating in shows, fox hunts, 
combined training events and en- 
durance rides. Clinics with guest 
instructors also are available each

sical education program and may be 

taken by students without the extra 
tuition charge of $60.

McGee Field Dedication 
Set for Homecoming 

Sewanee will pay a memorial trib- 
ute to one of its most exuberant 
alumni and supporters ever with the 
dedication of the Benjamin 
Humphreys McGee Field at Home- 
coming October 22. 

The dedication and renaming of 
old Hardee Field will be held during 
halftime of the Se wanee-Washington 
& Lee football game, exactly 20 
years after the then new stadium 
was dedicated to the memory of 
Eugene O. Harris, Jr. Washington & 
Lee also was the opponent at the 
stadium dedication in 1957. 

In conjunction with the field 
dedication, a $7,200 fund-raising 
campaign has begun to help cover 
the cost of improvements to the 
field and stadium facilities. 

Ug McGee, as he was known 
affectionately to his many friends, 
was killed August 1, 1975 in an 
auto crash only a block from his 
home in Leland, Mississippi. His 
death interrupted a career of dedi- 
cated support for his alma mater. 
He was a graduate of both the 
Academy, '42, and the College, '49. 

At the time of his death, Ug 
McGee was president of the Asso- 
ciated Alumni and was a University 
trustee. He had just completed a 
term on the board of regents. And 
his great value to the University as 
a campaign worker over the years 
was incalculable. 

"There is no question he was 
among the most loyal and dedi- 
cated Sewanee men of all time," 
wrote John Bratton, alumni dir- 
ector, shortly after the accident. 

Although born in Greenville, 
Mississippi in 1925, Ug McGee re- 
sided with his family in Sewanee 
through much of his youth. At the 
University, he was a two-year letter- 
man in football, was a member of 
Phi Delta Theta and a member of 
the Order of Gownsmen. He served 
as a Marine staff sergeant during 
World War II and was awarded an 
Air Medal. 

He found time for volunteer 
work for the University despite 
operating Little Panther Plantation 
near Leland, where he was a director 
of the Bank of Leland and was also 
an active member of St. John's 
Episcopal Church. 

The idea for dedicating the field 
to the memory of Ug McGee was 
first conceived at Ug's graveside by 
three of his old friends— John A. 
Bragg, A'43, C'49, of Franklin, 
Tennessee; Catchings B. Smith, 
A'42, of Jackson, Mississippi; and 
Walter D. Bryant, Jr., C'49, Sewa- 
nee athletic director. 

Later Mr. Bragg wrote in a let- 
ter to Coach Bryant: "As you, 
Catch, and I said in Leland last 
summer at Ug's funeral, we mar- 
veled at the fact that this unique 
man of Sewanee had touched the 
lives of so many people and had 
been the common denominator of 
so many different generations of 
Sewanee men and women. His 
loyalty and dedication to his be- 
loved alma mater was contagious to 
those about him and brought out 
the best in us all. If he had a 'parti- 
cular' love at Sewanee, it was the 
athletic program, and he demon- 
strated that throughout his life." 

Sewanee Club Activity 
Coastal Carolina alumni gathered 
for their annual affair at the Black- 
lock House March 29 in Charleston 
to hear Dr. Douglas Paschall give an 
account of happenings on the 
Mountain. Henry Grimball, C'70, is 
the new club president. 

Nashville invited everyone for 
wine and cheese at the Joe McAllis- 
ters' (C'56) May 14 with entertain- 
ment by the Pot Belly Stokers, 
country music featuring Allen 
Wallace, C'64, and Alex Shipley, 
C'63, pickin' and singin'. 

Houston alumni and friends 
had the opportunity to play tennis 
before dinner at the Woodlands Inn 
on June 4. 

Stepped-up activity has been 
the goal of Central South Carolina's 
president, Trace Devanny III, C'74, 
who scheduled two events this sum- 
mer: Dr. Robert Cassidy, professor 
of religion and now a regular club 
circuit rider with an unusual pres- 
entation on Sewanee, at the Wood- 
hill Estate Club Houie; a barbecue 
August 18 furnished by Charlie 
Barron, C'31, at White Pond between 
Columbia and Camden. 

"Summer Fest— bring kids 
rain or shine" read the invitation 
to the Jetmundsens' of Mobile on 
June 26. John Peebles, C'73, had 
the idea, invited Dr. Edwin Stirling 
of the English faculty to speak, not 
publicly but individually, and so he 
did with all seventy-five in attend- 

To re-activate the Sewanee 
Club of the Delta, Harold Eustis, 
C'37, met with George Archer, 
C'73, John Buntin, C'68, and 
Donald Hayden, C'67, over lunch 
and decided to take up Jack and 
Sally Baskin's offer of their home 
as the setting for an informal chat 
on Sewanee that has become the 
hallmark of College Dean Stephen 

Baton Rouge inaugurated club 
activity under the direction of Dr. 
Edwin Bowman, C'51, with an 
organizational party at the home of 
Bob Holloway, C'36, on August 11 
featuring Dr. Douglas Paschall of 
the English department and 
Sewanee Rhodes Scholar. 

Next day Dr. Paschall appear- 
ed in New Orleans to share boiled 
shrimp and beer with alumni and 
friends at the home of Feild Gomila, 

Clay Bailey's (C'50) home was 
the scene August 18 of a Sewanee 
picnic in Nashville with a number 
of guests from the Mountain to 
bring everyone up to date on the 
latest Sewanee happenings. 

Most of the summer gather- 
ings had the bonus feature for 
Sewanee of a recruitment aid, as 
current met prospective students 
with their parents in an alumni 
sponsored setting. 

New/Revitalized Sewanee Clubs 
In a formulated plan to establish 
new Sewanee Clubs and revitalize 
others, alumni director John 
Bratton took to the road to meet 
with Sewanee leaders in areas of 
heavy concentration of alumni and 
friends. Organizational meetings 
already have been held in Baton 
Rouge, New Orleans, Knoxville, the 
Mississippi Delta, San Antonio and 

Initial contacts have been 
made to formulate plans towards 
new clubs for Greenville/Spartan- 
burg, Shreveport, Montgomery, 
Central Florida, Lexington, Mem- 
phis, and Raleigh/Durham/Chapel 

Notices of programs are sent 
within a fifty-mile radius of the 
major city. Anyone wishing to 
organize activity in any area not 
mentioned above or whose clubs 
are not now functioning should 
communicate with the alumni 
director. Others desiring to partici- 
pate in regularly scheduled func- 
tions should call the local club pres- 
ident or organizational chairman 
depending on the status of the club.

v v ^ Conference on Literature 

All Saints' Chapel decked for the holidays 

Sewanee will host the Fourth 
Annual Conference of the Southern 
Comparative Literature Association 
February 16-18. 

The conference will draw to the 
University several noted personali- 
ties in literature and the arts. 
Heading the program will be Victor 
Brombert, professor of romance 
and comparative literature at Prince- 
ton University and a well-known 

Jacqueline Schaefer, Sewanee 
associate professor of French 
and coordinator of this year's 
conference, said she is expecting 
approximately 120 persons, princi- 
pally from other Southern uni- 
versities. That number could 
easily be exceeded, however. 

The association has a U.S. 
mailing list of more than 6,000. 
The conference, Dr. Schaefer said, 
will focus on Sewanee the attention 
of the nation's literary community. 

This will be the first year the 
conference has been held anywhere 
but at the University of Tennessee. 
It is a sign that Sewanee is leading 
in this area of study and not just 
following, Dr. Schaefer said. The 
University of the South was an 
original member of the association, 
and it was the first institution of 
its size in the South to establish an 
undergraduate program in com- 
parative literature. 

Dr. Brombert, whose visit to 
Sewanee will be jointly sponsored 
by the duPont Lecture Series, will 
speak on "Opening Signals in 
Narrative." Dr. Brombert has estab- 
lished an international reputation 
through his work in nineteenth- and 
twentieth-century fiction. 

Another visitor of note will be 
Robert Fitzgerald, Harvard pro- 
fessor of English and comparative 
literature and noted translator of 
Homer and Sophocles. 

Also as part of the duPont 
Lectures, Dr. Fitzgerald will give a 
reading of his poetry during his 

Coinciding with the conference 
will be two productions by Se- 
wanee's Purple Masque— Purgatory, 
by W. B. Yeats, and a modem Noh 

The five major sections of the 
conference will be "Critical 
Approaches to Kafka's K. Novels," 
"The Translation of Literature," 
"Theory and Method of East-West 
Literary Relations," "Literature 
and the Other Arts," and "The 
Practice of Comparative Literature." 

Dr. Lancaster 
Chairs MDP 

Replacing Robert M. Ayres as 
chairman of the Million Dollar 
Program this year is a man who 
may be described as a "Mister 
Touchdown" when it comes to 
getting jobs done. And on a campus 
where eloquence is commonplace, 
his eloquence is famous. 

He is Robert S. Lancaster, 
professor of political science, 
former dean of the College, and 
former acting director of develop- 

Dr. Lancaster has been at or 
near Sewanee for so long (41 years 
in vulgar specifics) that there are 
few alums who would not know, 
or know of, this red-haired man 
with the Cheshire grin. 

The list of his accomplishments 
is lengthy, but Mr. Ayres, the acting 
vice-chancellor, remarked that it 
is Dr. Lancaster's acquaintance with 
Sewanee alumni and friends and his 
personal knowledge of the Uni- 
versity that make him a natural 
choice for chairman. 

Following his appointment, Dr. 
Lancaster said these few words: 
"Sewanee now depends on the 
Million Dollar Program for its very 
life. Presently we are in very 
pressing financial straits. A liberal 
arts college like ours, which does 
not have the benefit of government 
funding, cannot have annual 
deficits and survive. 

"A tenth of our budgetary 
needs must be brought in by the

Regents Consider Budget Solutions 

The University Board of Regents 
has asked the administration of 
Vice-Chancellor Robert M. Ayres 
to report a balanced budget for 
1978-79 by the February regents' 

The regents met at Sewanee 
October 10-11, with budgetary 
problems a primary consideration. 

The vice-chancellor said the 
administration is projecting a 
deficit for the current year but a 
considerably smaller one than last 
year's $494,000. 

Oxford Studies 

Sewanee's only modern link with 
Oxford University will be renewed 
once more next summer when stu- 
dents and faculty participate in the 
British studies at Oxford program. 
Students may make plans now 
by notifying either Brinley Rhys, 
professor of English, or Edward 
King, associate professor of history, 
who will be participating in the 
six- weeks program. Six hours of 
credit will be offered. 

Study will be concentrated on 
the British mediaeval period, with 
well-known British experts lectur- 
ing in their respective fields. The 
format includes morning lectures 
and afternoon seminars, covering 
religion, philosophy, literature, his- 
tory and art of the period. An ex- 
amination is given at the end of the 

John V. Reishman, associate 
professor of English, who, with 
Joseph D. Cushman, led 26 Sewanee 
students to Oxford last summer, 
said the study of an entire period 
(last year it was the Victorian and 
Edwardian period) through several 
disciplines in a single package is a 
unique experience. 

"Some of our students who 
have seemed mediocre do very well, 
because the material begins to make 
sense to them in a more coherent 
context," Dr. Reishman said. 

"I am amazed at the lecturers," 
he added. "They are men and 
women of premier importance in 
the academic and cultural life of 

The cost of the program is 
$1,595 for room, meals and tuition. 
Some scholarships are available. 
The students and visiting faculty 
will reside in University College, 
the oldest of the Oxford colleges. 

The program is carried on 
through the Southern College 
Union in which Sewanee is one of 
the most active members, others 
being Vanderbilt and Southwestern. 

He said efforts to cut costs are 
already achieving some success, and 
he indicated there may be some 
chance of balancing the budget this 

John W. Woods, sitting as chair- 
man of the Board of Regents for 
the first time, said the board was 
asking for a budget report in 
February that would include a 
"reasonable contingency." He 
added, however, that the board 
did not want to "minimize the 
difficulty of the task we have asked 
the administration to undertake." 

The regents also discussed a 
whole raft of University concerns 
and met at length with student 

One question concerned an 
earlier report that as many as 50 
per cent (more recently 44 per cent) 
of University students in classes 
since 1965 have been voluntarily 
leaving school before obtaining a 

Vice-Chancellor Ayres, during a 
press conference at the end of the 
regents' meeting, said that they 
felt a study should be made of the 
problem. But both he and Mr. 
Woods said it was important not to 
draw quick conclusions before all 
the facts are known. 

"It would be a different sort 
of problem," Mr. Woods said, "if 
the normal national attrition rate 
were 40 per cent rather than 15 
per cent, for instance." 

Students also expressed concern 
about a projected increase in 
tuition of $710. Mr. Ayres pointed 
out that even with an increase, 
tuition pays only about half the 
actual cost of education. Arthur 
M. Schaefer, University provost, 
said the increase would be about 
VA per cent, still in line with 
the percentage increase in educa- 
tional costs. 

Music Center 
Dates Set 

The campus will breathe strains of 
the 22nd Sewanee Summer Music 
Center from June 24 through 
July 30, next summer. 

Early planning by Martha 
McCrory, the center's director, will 
bring to the University more than 
200 outstanding students from 
more than half the states and several 
foreign countries. 

The center is nationally recog- 
nized for its outstanding training 
program for instrumentalists in the 
fields of chamber music, orchestra 
repertoire and performance. A 
faculty of 40 eminent musicians 
will be in residence. A string camp 
for younger musicians will be held 
at the Sewanee Academy. 

Christopher Mayhew, recent duPont Lecturer 
from England, takes time during his tour 
of the campus to discuss with students such 
American newspapers as Rolling Stone and the 
Village Voice. 

V-C Search 

Bishop Girault M. Jones of Sewanee, 
former chancellor and chairman of 
the committee searching for a new 
vice-chancellor, reports that some 
highly qualified applicants are being 
considered. Serious discussions with 
the top candidates may begin in late 

In reporting to the Associated 
Alumni October 22, Bishop Jones 
said: "Since I arrived this morning, 
I received the 119th nomination." 

The committee, however, had 
narrowed the list of prospects to 12 
or 14, he said. Some committee 
members will first visit these candi- 
dates. Then those on whom the 
committee can agree will be invited 
to visit Sewanee. 

Colloquium Plans 

The Fifth Annual Sewanee 
Mediaeval Colloquium will be held 
April 13-15. 

This growing Sewanee insti- 
tution will gather on the mountain 
internationally known scholars, 
who will lecture and lead panel 
discussion on art and literature. 
The Colloquium is being planned 
around the theme "Dante and 
Dante's Italy." 

Jacqueline Schaefer, Sewanee 
professor of French, said she is 
expecting about 120 visitors for 
the three-day event.

Center, with its several weekend 
concerts and daily practice sessions,

The good food and atmosphere 
once associated with the Sewanee 
Inn are making a comeback. 

Once the Inn was the place to 
go for Sewanee folks, guests, and 
area Tennesseans generally, but in 
more recent years, it had become 
the place not to go. 

Spearheading the comeback is 
Emmert F. (Mac) McClellan, Se- 
wanee director of Saga, the food 
service organization which has been 
operating Gailor Hall on the College 
campus, and Cravens Hall at the 
Academy for about five years. Mc- 
Clellan has been at Sewanee a year 
and a half. 

This fall Saga and McClellan 
were also given the contract to 
operate the Bishop's Common snack 
bar and the Tiger Bay pub, and in 
addition, the Sewanee Inn. 

In negotiating a new contract 
for the management of the Inn, the 
University had two basic goals: to 
make the Inn once again a restaurant 
Sewanee could be proud of and to 
eliminate the annual deficits. 

"We are trying to regain the 
tradition," said McClellan, who has 
a long record of military service and 
restaurant operation. "We are going 
back to linens; we are going back to 
buffet style food, and we are work- 
ing to get fresh seafood on a regular 
basis." A Friday evening Fish-o- 
bord has gained some quick popu- 
larity on the mountain. 

The Inn manager is Dennis Can- 
non, 29, who has experience in 
"atmosphere" restaurants. He is 
carrying out several changes in the 
operation of the Inn, including 
changes in food preparation. Mc- 
Clellan and Cannon also are work- 
ing on changes in the menu. Some 
foreign foods may soon be available 
on special nights. The current con- 
tinental breakfast will be replaced 
with a full breakfast menu. 

Board of Regents Adds New Members 

"If we can get the families in 
Sewanee to come to the Inn once 
a month and some families within 
40 miles of Sewanee, we will have a 
financially profitable picture," Mc- 
Clellan said. Tourists and tour 
groups would be the gravy. 

Technically, McClellan said, 
the operation of the Inn is a 
partnership between the University 
and Saga. As its part of the bargain, 
the University will be upgrading the 
physical facilities. Some repairs are 
being made, and new television sets 
are being purchased for the motel 

To facilitate improvements, a 
committee of University people has 
been formed. McClellan said he is 
generally leery of committees, but 
he added; "More fruit came out of 
that first meeting." 

There are plans to put the 
lobby back into living-room shape, 
new uniforms are being ordered, 
and enough purchases are being 
made to bring the silverware and 
dishes back up to quality. 

Changes also may be made to 
give students greater options. Mc- 
Clellan said he is working now on a 
plan to allow students a "night on 
the town" (at the Sewanee Inn), 
using their meal tickets perhaps 
once a month. He pointed out that 
some students have already been 
going to the Inn. The reason can 
only be, he said, that they want a 
change of pace, a place to eat with 

Then, in collaboration with the 
golf and tennis committee, there is 
talk of even more fundamental 
changes— moving the club's snack 
bar several hundred feet across the 
lawn to the back of the Inn and re- 
arranging the golf course so golfers 
will pass the Inn to get to the first 
tee. McClellan noted that the golf 
and tennis club is already moving 
into the black since its takeover by 
the committee, but with the buying 
power of Saga and the personnel 
flexibility of the Inn, the situation 
could be improved even more. 

When the regents met in October, 
five of their number were sitting 
with the board for the first time. 

They were the Rev. E. Dudley 
Colhoun, Jr., C'50; Dr. M. Keith 
Cox, C'61; the Rt. Rev. David B. 
Reed, H 72; Albert Roberts III, 
C'50, and the Rt. Rev. Furman C. 
Stough, C'51, T'55, H'71. 

The Rev. Mr. Colhoun is 
rector of St. Paul's Church in 
Winston-Salem, North Carolina. 
A native of Roanoke, Virginia, 
he was graduated from the Virginia 
Theological Seminary after com- 
pleting his undergraduate work at 
Sewanee. He has served churches 
in Virginia, Georgia and North 
Carolina and has a son attending 
the University. 

Dr. Cox, a resident of Dallas, 
received his D.D.S. degree from 
Baylor University School of 
Dentistry in 1965 and is in private 

Bishop Reed, a resident .of 
Louisville, Kentucky, was educated 
at Harvard and the Virginia Theo- 
logical Seminary. His career as a 
missionary priest included work in 
Costa Rica, the Canal Zone, 
Columbia, and among American 
Indians in South Dakota. He is 
bishop of the missionary Diocese of 
Kentucky. The University of the 
South has awarded him its honorary 
Doctor of Divinity Degree. 

Mr. Roberts, an investment 
banker in Tampa, is an officer with 
Smith Barney, Harris Upham and 

Company. He has served the 
University of the South as a trustee 
and alumni officer, and is the 
newly-elected president of the 
Associated Alumni. He has a son 
and daughter attending the Uni- 

Bishop Stough, the bishop of 
the Diocese of Alabama, has served 
churches in Childersburg, Sylacauga 
and Sheffield, Alabama, and most 
recently was rector of St. John's 
Church in Decatur. He spent two 
years in Okinawa as rector of All 
Souls' Church in Naha. He is co- 
editor of Realities and Visions: The 
Church's Mission Today, published 
by Seabury Press. 

Sewanee Books Needed 

Rebel's Rest, the historic guest 
house of the University of the 
South, is seeking back issues of 
the Cap and Gown to fill out its 
library. Most volumes before 
1969 are needed. Rebel's Rest 
would also like to receive books 
by Sewanee authors and books 
about Sewanee and about the 
Episcopal Church in the South.

A Year of Russian Agriculture — 

From Samarkand to Khabarovsk 

Dr. Kenneth Gray, assistant pro- 
fessor of economics, spent the 
1976-77 school year studying 
Russian agriculture in a U.S.- 
U.S.S.R. scholarly exchange pro- 
gram. He was one of two econo- 
mists among 46 American parti- 
cipants in the exchange for grad- 
uate students and young faculty 
with the Soviet Ministry of Higher 
and Special Education. Dr. Gray 
was also awarded a Fulbright-Hays 
grant for faculty research abroad 
during the period. 

The International Research 
and Exchange Board (IREX) nomi- 
nated Dr. Gray for the exchange 
program position. IREX is spon- 
sored by the American Council of 
Learned Societies and the Social 
Science Research Council, and is 
funded in part by the Department 
of State's Bureau of Educational 
and Cultural Affairs. 

Dr. Gray was accompanied by 
his wife, Jean, and their son, Liam. 
After five weeks of language train- 
ing at Moscow State University 
(MGU), he was assigned to the 
Timiriazev Agricultural Academy in 
Moscow. The Grays were given a 
"block" of two rooms and bath, 
with communal kitchen facilities, 
in a new sixteen-story building on 
the edge of the academy territory. 

Dr. Gray reported, "The two 
rooms contained 180 and 120 
square feet respectively and were 
similar in layout to the MGU blocks, 
though bigger and more modern. 
We were supplied with a small 
refrigerator and a television. Neigh- 
bors on our floor were transients in 
Moscow for periods up to two 
months for refresher courses. Ele- 
vator service, hot water, and elec- 
tricity were sometimes interrupted, 
and the building had no telephone 

Liam, then three years old, 
attended a Russian nursery school 
from September through June. 

"The foreign office of the 
academy seemed interested that 
he would attend and cut red tape 
to get him in. He learned sufficient 
Russian to play and shout. He cried 
on the first day we left him and on 
the day when we picked him up for 
the last time," Dr. Gray said. 

Jean Gray continued her study 
of Russian with exchange lessons at 
the Academy. She also did the 
shopping— a big job in itself, with 
its own communications gap- 
cooking and housework, tutored 
children in English and worked part 
time for an American correspondent 
for NBC news. 

Kenneth Gray and family trace their itinerary 

The Gray family saw Russia as 
it may not be seen by all tourists— 
from the subtropical scenery with 
palm trees in the south, to cross- 
country skiing in the north, a popu- 
lar sport which they thoroughly en- 
joyed. The delights (?) of a Russian- 
style sauna with temperatures up to 
55 degrees Centigrade (131 F), 
camels in the Ukraine, swimming 
with dolphins in the Sea of Azov, 
and the non-Russian look of 
Moslem Uzbekistan with its 
mosques were also appreciated. 

Dr. Gray said his "long hard 
investment in the Russian lan- 
guage" began to pay off, in the 
family's being able to get around 
the country on their own. They 
made their own hotel reservations 
in Russian hotels rather than tourist 
hotels, paying in rubles which was 
considerably cheaper than "going 

One of the questions Dr. Gray 
asked his hosts on the various farms 
he visited was whether they had 
been in their jobs before Kruschev's 
departure from power, and if so, 

how have things changed. Most said 
they find it easier now to get 
needed fertilizer, machinery, etc. 
He said he was there following a 
crop failure, so there was a mood 
of temporary frustration, but a 
general overall feeling of improve- 
ment. He said Russia's imports of 
U.S. grain are not publicized in 
their papers, but people seem to 
know about it anyway. 

He said that whereas in this 
country the individual farmer 
decides how much of what he will 
plant after studying prices, market 
facilities and aid programs, in 
Russia government economists 
decide, and there is a large litera- 
ture on the bases for their deci- 
sions. "Decentralization of Soviet 
agriculture reflects issues in the re- 
reform of the economy as a whole," 
he said. 

Dr. Gray said that even the 
Russians think their system is over- 
centralized. The technicians he 
talked to were advocates of more 
decentralization, but he said the 

agricultural economists are "back- 

Dr. Gray was attached to the 
Kafedra of the Economics of So- 
cialist Agriculture, as apparently are 
all foreign special students no mat- 
ter what their interests, he said. His 
research director was a specialist in 
dairy economics who had made a 
trip to the U.S. the preceding spring. 

Some of his field trips were to 
Byelorussia, Ukraine, Georgia, and 
Krasnodarskii krai. With his family 
he traveled to Leningrad, Tibilisi, 
Erevan, Tashkent, Bukhara, and 
Samarkand. On leaving Russia they 
flew to Irkutsk and took the tran- 
Siberian railway to Khabarovsk and 
Nakhodka and a Soviet steamer to 

Ken Gray came to Sewanee in 
1974, having graduated from the 
University of Kansas with a major 
in economics and Slavic studies and 
spent a summer in Russia on a KU 
language program. He and his wife 
served in the Peace Corps in Peru 
from 1968 to 1970. 


Don't Laugh at Lenin's Statue, Comrade 

What is there to do in Russia? That 
nation of the risen proletariat is 
even duller than the Russians would 
have us believe. Like everyone else, 
the tourist suffers with the primi- 
tive plumbing, poor transportation 
and lousy food. So he might live 
dangerously: take pictures of 
bridges, or of people standing in 
line for food, or enjoy the natives 
in the spirit of 1984— "We'd 
better not stand here too long ; let's 
mingle with the crowd." 

Harold Goldberg did this and 
more, and for all his humorless 
Russian hosts could tell, he was a 
perfect guest. 

Goldberg, assistant professor of 
history, had intended to take a 
dozen students with him behind the 
Iron Curtain, but Soviet bureau- 
crats have ways of frustrating the 
best laid plans. 

So he finally settled for a 16-day 
group tour last summer conducted 
by Intourist, the official Soviet 
travel agency. 

"They want the Americans to 
have the idea there are practically 
no restrictions," Goldberg said, "So 
tourists may leave the group and 
wander almost anywhere they wish." 

In practice, he explained, most 
everyone stays with the tour. The 
language barrier is too overwhelm- 
ing. Unable to read signs or ask 
questions, the tourist doesn't know 
where he is going or what he is 

Goldberg, fluent in Russian 
and a bit of a maverick to boot, set 
out on his own, gathering the flavor 
of the country and photographs of 
Russian sites to bring back to his 

Without the warning of their 
guide, however, an elderly couple 

Harold Goldberg 

in Goldberg's tour group found 
themselves arrested in Odessa be- 
cause they were photographing 
a line of people waiting to buy fruit. 

"So they were taken— well, I 
wouldn't say down town," Gold- 
berg grinned. "They were taken to 
the station, and no one knew where 
they were. They probably had this 
Kojak idea that everyone gets one 
phone call." 

After being kept in isolation for 
perhaps an hour and a half, the 
woman began to break down and 
cry. So the police, Goldberg said, 
with this hysterical woman on their 
hands, simply took the couple's 
film and let them go. 

Later Goldberg disregarded a 
warning and sneaked some photo- 
graphs of a private commune 
market, where farmers are allowed 
to peddle their private produce for 
a capitalistic profit. 

"The prices are much higher 
than in the state stores," he said, 
"but we were told the quality was 
also much better. The market was 
crowded with shoppers. Everyone 
in the tour group was looking 
forward to visiting the market be- 
cause we hadn't had any good 
fruit since we had arrived in Russia." 

But nobody bought anything. 

"It was the kind of stuff that's 
thrown out in America before it 
gets to the supermarket," he said. 

Though the Russians try to 
impress Americans, service remains 
inept. Apparently stung by the 
complaint in one restaurant about 
the steaks, which Goldberg de- 
scribed as the worst meat he had 
ever eaten, the woman tour guide 
threw a piece at the feet of a 
waiter and stomped on it. Ten 
minutes later, Goldberg added, 
"these beautiful steaks were brought 

Even when wandering the 
streest alone, Americans are con- 
spicuously Western, he said. "Every- 
thing about us screams American. 
We were constantly beseiged with 
requests to sell our clothes. To 
have anything Western is the height 
of Russian prestige — to have any- 
thing with a label, such as Levis. A 
Mickey Mouse shirt would be worth 
an incredible amount." 

The Russian rubles, however, 
are almost useless to the Americans, 
who can spend their dollars only 
in tourist stores, where the dollar- 
hungry Soviet government sells 
the best quality goods. 

Goldberg said he was approach- 
ed on the street by younger Rus- 
sians, who showed dissatisfaction 
with the low standards. The older 
Russians are content, because they 

survived the bleak 1930s and the 
deprivations of World War II. They 
are proud of what their country 
has done. 

Goldberg asked one young 
Russian, "Don't you think things 
are better?" 

"Better than what?" was the 
answer, "I'm not that old." 

That is a contrast to the re- 
action of Western youth against 
materialism. The young Russians 
cannot get enough material goods. 

In politics, the ordinary Russian 
citizen apparently has little identi- 
fication with the intellectual dis- 
sidents. Instead the Russians talked 
about the American neutron bomb, 
Goldberg said, which was getting 
a big play in the Soviet press. 

The American tour group was 
also approached by Jewish Rus- 
sians, who were trying to leave the 
country and wanted information 
about places to live and work in 
the United States. They face a 
sobering risk. By applying to emi- 
grate, Russians risk their apartments 
and job status, and many must 
depend on friends and relatives for 

Starting with Leningrad, Gold- 
berg's tour flew into five Russian 

"I am sure Lindbergh had a 
better plane," he said. But he was 
delighted with and awed by the 
historic sights. Red Square must 
be seen to be believed, and he 
called St. Basil's Cathedral the 
most fantastic building he has 
ever seen. 

A line outside Lenin's tomb 
was so long (more than a mile) 
that Goldberg finally gave up a 
search for the end and went back 
to tell a Russian guard, naive in 
the ways of American guile, 
that he had missed his tour bus 
which had just driven up to an 
early entrance. He still waited in 
line for an hour. 

Newlyweds, just married in 
the Kremlin's Hall of Marriages 
("Very romantic, right?" Gold- 
berg grinned), take precedence 
and move to the head of the line 
where they "start their married 
life," said Goldberg, "with the 
inspiration of seeing Lenin stretch- 
ed out in his mausoleum." 

Those Russians. Maybe you do 
need to see it to believe it. 



Readers of the Sewanee News 
have expressed interest in out-of- 
class activities of Sewanee faculty, 
and since independent work is 
also of interest, though not always 
well known, to other faculty mem- 
bers, a list is compiled here. Of 
necessity only a part of the faculty 
is mentioned in this issue. 

Eric W. Naylor, professor of Spanish, 
has published two books in slightly 
over a year, both dealing with the 
14th-century long poem, "Book of 
Good Love," written by Juan Ruiz, 
archpriest of Hita. The first book 
includes notes, literary commentary, 
and mediaeval Spanish illustrations 
for the 8,000-line poem, the major 
work of the Castilian Middle Ages. 
The second book is a facsimile edi- 
tion of the Toledo manuscript with 
transcription of the manuscript, 
and commentary. Dr. Naylor has 
been working in collaboration with 
Manuel Criado de Val of Madrid. 

Timothy Keith-Lucas, assistant pro- 
fessor of psychology, who is devo- 
ting much of his out-of -class time- 
to writing about emergency vehicle 
equipment, said he is proving there 
is a need for someone with an en- 
gineering, psychology and fire- 
fighting background. (Dr. Keith- 
Lucas is training officer and chief 
engineer with the Sewanee Fire 
Department). Fire Command, a 
journal of the National Fire Pro- 
tection Association, published his 
article last month titled "Perception 
of Warning Lights," about the flash 

rate, color (the worst color to use 
is red and the next worse is blue), 
brightness and placement of lights 
on vehicles. A second article on the 
perception of sirens will be pub- 
lished soon in Fire Engineering, 
a commercial journal. A third is 
still being written, comparing strobe 
lights and rotating beacons as warn- 
ing lights. 

The University of the South has 
been awarded an $18,000 grant 
from the National Endowment for 
the Humanities to allow Stephen F. 
Brown, professor of philosophy, 
to complete the editing of two 14th 
century commentaries on the phys- 
ics of Aristotle. The two commen- 
taries will be added for publication 
to another commentary already edi- 
ted by Dr. Brown. The entire pro- 
ject is titled "Critical Edition of 
Two Physics Commentaries of 
William of Ockham." Ockham, the 
Oxford Franciscan logician, philo- 
sopher and theologian, was ex- 
tremely influential in the faculties 
of universities in England and on 
the continent from the 14th to the 
16th centuries. Dr. Brown has been 
the principal or associate editor for 
three volumes which have already 
appeared in the Opera Omnia series 
of Ockham and has completed a 
fourth volume, which will appear in 
February. The project consists in 
trying to re-establish the lectures 
of Ockham as originally given by 
collating all the surviving manu- 
scripts of each work. For each of 

the two treatises he will be editing, 
Dr. Brown has three surviving 
manuscripts from the 14th century. 

John V. Reishman, associate pro- 
fessor of English, will be taking a 
sabbatical leave spring semester to 
do some short-story writing. The 
project is a follow-up to some cre- 
ative writing Dr. Reishman did as a 
student at Notre Dame. Some of 
his work was accepted for publi- 

Mary Jo Wheeler-Smith, assistant 
professor of anthropology, has re- 
cently published a book review and 
is writing a second. The first, pub- 
lished in the August edition of the 
Journal of Asian Studies, deals with 
Encounter and Experience— Per- 
sonal Accounts of Field Work, 
edited by Andre Beteille and T. N. 
Madan. The review draws on her 
experience in field work in India. . 
The second review, which will be 
published in South Asia in Review, 
deals with Scheduled Caste Women 
by Harshad R. Triveli. (A preview 
of the review: "This book is simply 
dreadful. " 

Jacqueline Schaefer, associate pro- 
fessor of French, spent a month 
last summer at the Center for Ad- 
vanced Studies in Mediaeval Civili- 
zation at Poitiers, France, attending 
lectures and doing research in 
"iconography of madness in the 
12th century." Olifant, a publica- 
tion of the Rencesvals Society, re- 
cently published her review of an 

article by Pierre Jonin. More recent- 
ly still, hers was the lead article 
published in Tristania, a journal de- 
voted to Tristan Studies. Dr. Schae- 
fer also has been named to a com- 
mittee of the Institute of European 
Studies to plan and supervise a 
comparative literature program 
overseas. She also is a member of 
the Tennessee Council for Inter- 
national Education, whose purpose 
is to provide opportunities for 
those involved in international edu- 

Barclay Ward, assistant professor of 
political science, presented a paper 
on "Policy Process in Poland," 
during the annual meeting in Wash- 
ington October 13-16 of the Ameri- 
can Association for the Advance- 
ment of Slavic Studies. Dr. Ward 
and his wife, Joan, an instructor in 
political science, spent the summer 
of 1976 in Poland. Dr. Ward's class- 
es in Soviet Foreign Policy and 
International Polities are becoming 
rather famous at Sewanee because 
of their use of an "international 
simulation program," under which 
groups of students are assigned 
countries and attempt to achieve 
national goals they select. 

Charles S. Peyser, professor of 
psychology, is continuing research 
into the record of student perfor- 
mance and rate of graduation in the 
University's College of Arts and 
Sciences. The result of part of this 
study, which is being done in co- 
operation with the admissions 
office, drew the attention of the 
Board of Regents this fall when it 
was noted that the figures seemed 
to show that a rather high percen- 
tage of Sewanee students have been 
transferring away from Sewanee be- 
fore graduation. He said the find- 
ings of the overall study may be 
helpful in predicting and improving 
the performance of students. Dr. 
Peyser also has reviewed six books 
since May for Periodically, a publi- 
cation of the American Psycholo- 
gical Association, which is aimed 
primarily at pre-college psychology 
teachers. This past year, Dr. Peyser 
received certification as a soccer 
referee from the National Inter- 
collegiate Soccer Officials Associa- 
tion and has been officiating this 
fall at area matches, principally 
around Chattanooga and Huntsville. 


The University and the Church- 
Meeting Responsibilities 

From a variety of sources, in one form or another, 
the question is occasionally heard at Sewanee: 
"What does the University of the South do for 
the Episcopal Church?" Or: "Why should the 
church support the University?" — directed 
most often to the College of Arts and Sciences 
or the Sewanee Academy. These questions have 
a strange ring to thosewhoare a part of Sewanee, 
who are deeply involved in the mission of the 
University in education. But there is validity in 
those questions, because they raise the ultimate 
and always living issue of church relationship. 

It is a concern among University leaders that 
the financial support from the Episcopal Church 
— its dioceses and parishes— equals only slightly 
more than two per cent of the University budget 
annually, despite the fact the University is wholly 
owned by the church. There is particular concern 

at this time when the University is striving to 
balance its budget. Tuition is paying only about 
50 per cent of the cost of education, and in- 
flation threatens further to erode the University 's 

The Rev. James Johnson, rector of St. 
George's Church, Nashville, and alumni vice 
president for church relations, told the Asso- 
ciated Alumni in October: "It may not be possi- 
ble for the University of the South to be separ- 
ated from the Church, but it may as well be, if 
the Church is not going to support Sewanee. " 

It is a complicated and double-edged issue— 
this matter of church relationship. It involves 
obligations for both the University and the 
Church. The nature of its obligation to the 
Church and the community at large is a problem 
Sewanee is struggling to define in clearer terms. 

To catch a glimpse of this struggle, the 
Sewanee News is publishing here four essays 
addressed to the broad question of the Univer- 
sity's relationship to the Episcopal Church— 
what it is and what the future of a church- 
related university might be. 

The authors represent a spectrum of thinking 
at Sewanee. They are relatively young, scholarly 
and articulate, and they are deeply involved in 
the daily life of the University. They represent, 
in a sense, a new generation of leadership on the 
campus. They have written, however, realizing 
that what they have written will not necessarily 
change minds or influence University policy. 
That is not the purpose. They and the Sewanee 
News will be pleased if these essays simply give 
you a better picture of what Sewanee is. 

for Action 

by Stephen E. Puckette 

Why should a church support any kind of edu- 
cational institution? There is one evident reason 
why some churches do, and that is to provide a 
particular climate under which the process of 
learning may take place. The particular climate 
may vary from indoctrination, or coerced belief, 
to a principle for which the institution stands, 
whether or not all its parts stand with it. 

In the United States learning is going to hap- 
pen whether a church does anything about it or 
not. For one thing the government of each state 
says learning will happen, or more precisely, the 
time and place for it to happen will be provided, 
forcibly, up through a certain age. Each state 
government also provides opportunities for a 
continuation of learning into higher education, 
as it is pleased to be called. 

The church may very well stand by, visit the 
sick, preach, baptize, marry, and bury. With the 
exception of preaching, these to me represent 
passive states for the church to be in. The com- 
municants do the procreating and the dying, and 
we expect the church to react by performing its 
rituals over events already decided. 

The church may do only that, and in many 
parishes that seems to be all there is. But in 
these circumstances a vast opportunity is totally 

The voluntary alms-giver 
has given way to the 
involuntary taxpayer 

In looking around for its earthly missions, 
the church in the United States in the 1970s 
does not have the choice of going back to its 
mediaeval antecedents and providing all the care 
for the sick, the poor, the orphans, and the aged. 
Little by little the various levels of government 
have taken the initiative and provided relief for 
what once was the charitable domain of the 
church. For better or worse, the voluntary alms- 
giver has given way to the involuntary taxpayer, 
and the church's options for action have been 
taken away. 

There remains at least the opportunity for 
action which the Church has never lost. For 
some reason, in both this country and in Great 
Britain, private institutions of learning have sur- 
vived the ever-increasing tendency of govern- 
ment to provide a public and wholly secular sub- 
stitute. I believe the reason for this survival is 
that the process of formal learning is very sus- 
ceptible to being contaminated with moral ed- 
ucation, the instillation of personal ideals and 
goals, and that contamination has been both 
highly valuable and highly successful. Know- 
ledge has its own frontiers, and at those frontiers 

are often questions of ethics, morality, and the 
purpose of humankind. The church is one place 

where the young go for answers. 

If the church misses this kind of opportunity, 

I believe it is locked in a death wish. 

Coercion of belief is the 
antithesis of honest learning 

I should be emphatic about my own con- 
viction that the church should not charge in to 
support an institution which exacts the same 
creed every week from every student, or even 
from every faculty member or dean. I think the 
institution should state clearly its own purpose, 
its own creed, and stick by it. But each of its 
participants must be allowed to learn, to ques- 
tion, and to seek his or her own answers. Coer- 
cion of belief is the antithesis of honest learning, 
and the latter is what characterizes a successful 
educational climate. 

Among its many options for action in educa- 
tion, a church will be, I believe, most effective if 
it provides the kind of climate I am trying to 
describe. There is no doubt that church colleges 
with precise doctrinal requirements have grown 
in number during this decade, but I believe their 
attraction is the result of a temporary flight 
from the totally secular atmospheres of large pri- 
vate institutions which do not currently know 
what they stand for. (These latter places of 
learning may as well be merged with the state 
universities, for the purposes of the two can no 
longer be distinguished.) 

If the church has a shining opportunity, 
both for its own self-interest and for the intrinsic 
value of education in a church-oriented insti- 
tution, what genus of education should it be? I 
do not think it matters, as long as the education 
is a serious endeavor accessible to a reasonable 
fraction of the population. It could be engineer- 
ing as well as liberal arts, or secondary as well as 
college level. 

There is no point in the church's establish- 
ing an institute solely for postdoctoral work in 
radio astronomy, important and laudable as 
that is. It could absorb arbitrary amounts of 
money, but any educational institution can do 

that. The difficulty is that only an insignificant 
number of souls really get into radio astronomy 
in any depth, and the church wants to have 
some impact. The endeavor must be one in 
which a significant number of people can 
participate. It will therefore have to include 
opportunities for undergraduate work. 

The Episcopal Church has 
never thought of Sunday 
School as a serious institution 

On the other hand, the work must be 
serious. The church could very well put all its 
efforts into Sunday School— called Christian 
education nowadays, as opposed to the other 
kind handed out down the street. But the 
Episcopal church has never thought of Sunday 
School as a serious institution, as any product 
of it can verify. It is as if the church were mute- 
ly testifying to the possibility that it wants to 
look elsewhere to do its serious work in edu- 

In sum, I believe that what the church wants 
to engage in is Christian Education, and the 
enterprise should be worthy of both names. The 
first provides a framework of belief for the pro- 
cess, the second is the business— not antithetical 
to the church's business, but necessary to it— 
of hammering out thoughtful, educated persons, 
with all the action of argument, challenge, un- 
certainty, and eventual liberation which edu- 
cation can provide. 

With mankind's persistent compulsion to 
learn, education will not fade away. If the 
church opts out of the process, the church might 
. fade instead.

Building a Christian Community 

by the Rev. Charles Kiblinger 

Sewanee survives, and in a sense thrives, in the 
midst of the growing size of state systems of 
higher education and secular private schools. 
It has emerged as a relatively small liberal arts 
college, although the vision of the founders was 
one of grandeur, retaining "university" in its 
name because of the School of Theology. Yet 
this survival runs counter to the usual fate of 
church-related schools. 

The Episcopal Church in particular has 
maintained very few of the many colleges it has 
founded in America. Although the Church re- 
tains a relationship with six other American 
colleges in the Association of Episcopal Colleges, 
the University is the only institution of higher 
learning today completely owned and operated 
by the Episcopal Church. The University con- 
tinues to be governed by the church despite the 
fact that only a small portion of its budget is 
actually derived directly from the Church. 

In this context the question is raised: Why 
should the Church own a college like Sewanee? 
Outside of training for the ministry, should the 
Episcopal Church be in the business of higher 
education? What can a church school do that 
public education does not do more efficiently 
and less expensively? 

At least three points seem relevant in re- 
sponse to these questions ; education and values; 
education and community; education and ser- 

A system of evangelical 
button-holing . . . would be 
a violation of Sewanee 's 
history and tradition 


The perennial debate in education circles is 
whether education should be value-free or value- 
oriented. Unfortunately, in the history of church 
colleges the value-oriented approach to education 
has been associated with sectarian dogmatism 
that has violated the freedom for study, inquiry 

The truth we seek is ultimately a seeking after God 

and thoughtful expression. Sewanee has always 
avoided such a relationship between church and 
college and has strictly maintained an atmosphere 
of academic integrity. While evangelism may be 
a part of the campus ministry, it is not the pur- 
pose of the college. A system of evangelical 
button-holing or fundamentalist Bible instruc- 
tion would be a violation of Sewanee's history 
and tradition and of the Episcopal church's 
traditional stance on higher education. 

On the other hand the church school should 
offer an honest alternative to secular education. 
The 1973 report of the Carnegie Commission on 
Higher Education suggested as the fifth of its 
five purposes for higher education in the United 
States that there be in the university "the critical 
evaluation of society— through individual thought 
and persuasion— for the sake of society's self- 
renewal." Little of education is thoroughly 
objective and it is nearly impossible to separate 
one's personal values from what and how one 
teaches. If the state is to be in charge of educa- 
tion from the pre-school through graduate school, 
it becomes, in a way, "the established church" 
for civil religion which perpetuates its own 
values. Like other private institutions, the church 
college should then provide a critical and creative 

The church college is distinguished from 
other private and state institutions by its belief 
that the search for truth in education is ulti- 
mately grounded in the triune God and that all 
that man has learned or will learn is in harmony. 
The church college should then have an atmo- 
sphere of total freedom (freedom in Christ) to 
seek out all truth and to fear nothing in its pur- 
suit - , to be open to all issues and possibilities of 
learning and life without shrinking from their 
realities. Science, reason, and faith then join to 
seek to achieve full truth and to see its harmony 
and its wholeness in one's self and in the world. 

Sewanee has avoided the narrow sectarian 
trap in church school education. By its attach- 
ment to the Episcopal Church it operates on the 

premise that the truth we seek is ultimately a 
seeking after God. The question must be asked 
of a school such as Sewanee, with its student 
body and supporting constituency having a 
rather homogeneous cultural complexion, is: 
does it seriously reflect the values of a parti- 
cular region and class of people or does it truly 
provide an atmosphere where there might be 
"the critical evaluation of society— through 
thought and persuasion— for the sake of society's 
self -renewal"? And is that critical evaluation 
carried out in a dialogue between a theological 
understanding of this world and the other 
academic disciplines probing and illuminating 
each other in a search, without fear, for the 
truth? Those are the kinds of questions that any 
church and college united to each other must 
continually pose. 


Sewanee, like hundreds of other small pri- 
vate colleges, offers an alternative to the large 
computerized state university by its smallness. 
Certainly the opportunity for the development 
of relationships is considerably enhanced in a 
town of three thousand and a student body of 
a thousand as compared to a campus of twenty 
to forty thousand students in the midst of a 
city. The small campus in the small town has a 
unique opportunity in an essentially urbanized 
society to develop a strong community. 

Although one can argue that people and not 
institutions are Christian, the church college 
should take seriously the development of Chris- 
tian Community. A place like Sewanee offers 
the church an unparalleled opportunity for the 
development of sensitive, motivated, and in- 
tellectually and spiritually equipped lay people 
who understand the possibilities and responsi- 
bilities of living in community. 

The basis for such community in a place like 
Sewanee is inevitably the permanent community : 
the faculty, administration, staff and all the

arbitrary divisions of society 


A place like Sewanee offers 
the church an unparalleled 

people who live and work in the town. What 
kind of model for community is provided the 
student who enters this community for three 
or four years? The church college which takes its 
life together seriously must consciously work at 
developing the kind of reconciling community 
which reflects the ideals of Christian Community. 
This assumes an open and trusting society in 
which channels of communications are open 
among all groups. Conflict must be allowed to 
emerge and be resolved in a spirit of love and 
concern for one another. Arbitrary distinctions 
must be minimized and in the Christian Com- 
munity the uniting force is ever the Christ 
figure representing the power of God to recon- 
cile all people to himself and to each other. 
Sewanee is recollected by its alumni as a 
place of the formation of strong and enduring 
relationships. In the past its faculty has been 
and continues to be remarkably accessible to 
the students, and the spirit of life together is 
truly heartening when one observes the parallel 
situation of the vast structure of state universi- 
ties. At the same time Sewanee continues to re- 
flect the arbitrary divisions of society in its 
own life and fails to achieve any real openness 
and trust that allows direct resolution of con- 
flict and a real dialogue amongst its many groups 
and life-styles. The real question that must be 
asked by a church operating a college such as 
Sewanee is: how much can those who make the 
decisions for the life of such a community really 
allow the freedom for the Spirit of God to grow 
and develop that community as He will?

It is not the job of the church 
college to prepare its 
graduates to work for the 
church but rather to be the 
church in the world 


Sewanee, like those other small colleges 
which have survived the 20th century pressure 
towards utilitarianism, continues to educate and 
not train men and women, to develop the whole 
person and not just a skill which will enable a 
personjto enter the world of work and the eco- 
nomic order. The ideal church college seeks to 
prepare men and women for the whole of life as 
citizens of the world. It is not the job of the 
church college to prepare its graduates to work 
for the church but rather to be the church in the 
world. The church is in the business of education 
in order to educate its people for service, not for 
some selfish amassing of knowledge or the ac- 
cumulation of prestige and economic gain. 

The college offers the church an instrument 
by which it might exercise its prophetic concern 

that the structures and forces of society become 
wiser, more just and more compassionate. The 
college as the arm of the church can, if it wills 
to do so, by its work with and access to persons 
do much to shape the character, inform the 
mind, establish the policies, and set the values of 
society as a whole. 

Again the permanent community is the 
model for the college community. Above all, the 
faculty must take the lead, for the college years 
are the critical years for students when they be- 
gin to establish for themselves values and a world 
view which will color their lives and work and 
affect the society in which they will live out 
their lives. Here the questions the church must 
ask about its educational enterprise are: What 
kind of ethical understanding of life is given in 
the college community? To what degree does 
the community understand its citizenship in 
global terms and instill a sense of responsibility 
for that community in its students? How does 
the college prod and help all who have a part in 
its life, whatever their creed, to view life with 
awe and to regard work as the opportunity for 

Sewanee is in many ways at a crossroads in 
its life. Like many small institutions it struggles 
now for its survival in the economic order. It 
will, however, as an arm of the Church fail if it 
allows itself to be paralyzed by the present con- 
ditions and seek in fear to return to the past or 
simply preserve the status quo. If it is to move 
ahead in the Kingdom of God then it must take 
seriously the question of its own internal life as 
a Christian community and its participation in a 
world community which is rapidly changing and 
moving in ways about which the founders in 
1858 would have never dreamed. Those men, 
however, left the Church with a small but mighty 
arm by which it can do a great piece of its work 
if it so wills.

Sewanee from a Great Awakening 

by the Rev, Donald Armentrout 

The religious revival which swept the American 
colonies in the eighteenth century (ca. 1720- 
1760) is known as the Great Awakening. From 
1800 to 1835 another revival swept the eastern 
seaboard; this is known as the Second Great 
Awakening. This Second Great Awakening was 
partially a reaction to the Rationalism of the 
Revolutionary Era (1775-1800). One majqr 
dimension of this Awakening was the effort to 
Christianize America after the enactment of 
disestablishment. When the churches in America 
were disestablished it was decided to make 
America Christian by persuasion. The primary 
agency for this was voluntary societies like 
the American Bible Society (1816). Other 
agencies were publishing houses and the Sunday 
School movement. A major effort was also made 
by creating educational institutions, primarily 
colleges and theological seminaries. 

This is the period when theological seminaries 
were first established. During the seventeenth 
and eighteenth centuries the native trained min- 
istry was educated at Harvard, Yale and Prince- 
ton. In 1784 the first theological seminary was 
established— the New Brunswick Theological 
Seminary by the Dutch Reformed in New Jersey. 
This movement really flourished during the 
Second Great Awakening. From 1808 (the 
founding of Andover Theological Seminary) to 
1836 (the founding of Union Theological

Seminary, New York) at least sixteen permanent 
seminaries were established. Two of these were 
Episcopal: General Theological Seminary (1819), 
and Virginia Theological Seminary (1823), 

This period also witnessed an unprecedented 
wave of college building under the auspices of 
the American churches. The Episcopalians also 
participated in this: Hobart (1822), Trinity 
(1823), and Kenyon (1824). 

First Mention of the 
University of the South 

This is the context into which the idea of a 
southern university was proposed. At the fourth 
convention of the Diocese of Tennessee, at 
Nashville, on Saturday, June 30, 1832, the 
following preamble and resolution was adopted: 

Whereas, This Convention is deeply sensible of 
the great want of Clergymen of the Protestant Episcopal 
Church in this Diocese, and also of the wants of our 
sister churches of the southern and southwestern states 
generally; And whereas, we believe that the interests of 
this church can only be advanced in those sections of the 
Union above alluded to, by providing ministers of piety 
and learning to labor at their destitute altars. And also, 
that the course of true religion and learning may be most 
effectually promoted by providing for the instruction of 
those who are preparing for holy orders. Therefore, 

1.) Resolved, That this convention pledge them- 
selves, if funds can be obtained, to establish, at some 
eligible location in this Diocese, a Classical and Theolo-' 
gical Seminary of learning, in order to educate, or aid in 
the education of persons who are desirous of obtaining 
holy orders (Journal of the Diocese of Tennessee, 
1832, p. 9) 

This is the first mention of what was to be- 
come in twenty-eight years (October 10, 1860), 
the University of the South. It is obvious that 
the idea of the University was born in the 
Episcopal Church and that theological education 
was to be one of its primary objectives. Grad- 
ually this idea moved, by the efforts of Bishops 
Otey, Polk and Elliott, from a diocesan base to 
include all ten of the southern dioceses. Bishop 
Polk expresses most clearly the proposed uni- 
versity's relation to the church: "A cardinal 
principle in the whole movement would of 
course be, that the institutions would be de- 
claredly out-and-out Episcopal, founded by 
the Church for the especial benefit of her own 
children, or the advancement of learning gener- 
ally, and for the propagation of the Gospel as 
she understands it" (Telfair Hodgson, ed. 
Reprints of Documents . . . Prior to 1860, 
pp. 13-14). 

This idea was incorporated into the Consti- 
tution and Statutes of the University. Article I 
of the Constitution reads ; 

This University shall be called "The University 
of the South," and shall in all its parts be under the sole 
and perpetual direction of the Protestant Episcopal 
Church, represented through a Board of Trustees (Re- 
prints, p. 174). 

A Church School by 
Declaration and 
by Government 

The trustees are the Bishops of the owning 
dioceses (there are twenty-four now) and one 
clergyman and two lay persons from each of the 
dioceses. Gradually faculty and alumni trustees 
have been added. The University of the South 
is a church school by declaration and by govern- 

The church connection is also maintained by 
having a chaplain, but the Statutes do not act- 
ually state that he/she must be an Episcopalian. 

There shall be a Chaplain to the University, 

who may hold his office for the term of five years 

He shall read, every day, morning prayers, in the 
University Chapel, shall hold the usual public services 
on Sunday, and shall have a general pastoral oversight 
of the officers and students of the University (Reprints, 
p. 188). 

There were several other efforts to insure 
that the University be a church school. In 1879 
the Rev. George Patterson presented this reso- 
lution: "Resolved, That no person shall be em- 
ployed as a Professor, Teacher, or Tutor in this 
University until he subscribe the following 
declaration: 'I do believe the Holy Scriptures of 
the Old and New Testament to be the Word of 
God, and to contain all things necessary to sal- 
vation; and I do solemnly engage to conform 
to the doctrines, discipline, and worship of the 
Protestant Episcopal Church in the United 
States' " (Proceedings of the Board of Trustees, 
1879, p. 28). Fortunately this did not pass. 

There was also an effort in the early days to 
require that the Vice-Chancellor be a priest. 
This also was rejected. 

The University of the South has always been 
a school of the church. The mission before it 
now is to realize the fullness of what that 
means; "... a university founded upon Christian 
faith and the teachings of Christ" ("Convocation 
Address, September 5, 1977," p. 4). 

The Rev. Donald S. Armentrout is 
an associate professor of ecclesiasti- 
cal history in the School of Theology. 
He is a 1961 graduate of Roanoke 
College and holds advanced degrees 
from Gettysburg Lutheran Theolo- 
gical Seminary and Vanderbilt. Cur- 
rently he is writing a history of the 
School of Theology for its centennial 
celebration next year. 


Last Leaf on the Tree 

by Waring McCrady 

The same church which founded and owns 
Sewanee has over the centuries founded and 
owned more than fifty other such colleges or 
universities in the United States. Of these gener- 
ally high-quality schools, Sewanee alone remains 
fully owned, supported, and ultimately governed 
by the church. In every other case, ownership 
has been relinquished, support alienated, and 
government either entirely disassociated or else 
(in a very small number of cases) reduced to the 
inclusion of some honorary member of the board 
and perhaps the retention of an Episcopal chap- 
lain. Sewanee is the last leaf on the tree, the sole 
survivor of the Episcopally-founded colleges. 
From the viewpoint of historical inevitability, 
one wonders how much longer this remnant 
from a string of failures can continue as a 
church-owned school. 

The record would seem to indicate that the 
Episcopal church is either financially incapable 
or else intellectually unconcerned when it comes 
to supporting higher education. Yet it is an 
apparent fact of American sociology that the 
Episcopal church has frequently claimed the 
membership of the most wealthy and best 
educated people wherever it has thrived. Why 
then has it shown so little continued support 
for higher education? And can it be expected to 
continue supporting Sewanee? 

Two observations are very significant here, 
and unfortunately they both represent the forces 
of social refinement as predominant over those 
of theological conviction. 

First; the Episcopal church has largely been 
identified with a class of people among whom 
money is considered to be a vulgar subject. We 
do not like to beg; we find it very distasteful to 
display in public what percentage or what abso- 
lute amount we are giving to any cause. The 
discussion of one's charity and of money in gen- 
eral is simply not good manners. As a result 
though we may be one of the wealthiest Christian 
groups in the world, per capita, we nonetheless 
have a very poor record in group financial 
support. Colleges are not the only things we 
don't support; we can hardly scrape together 
enough money to pay our clergy. Every year, 
the Episcopal church closes missions for lack of 
funds. Will it have to close Sewanee? 

There are no uniquely 
Episcopal dogmas to teach 

Second: Episcopalians have traditionally 
been so calm and so rational in their theology 
and religious behavior, and so firm in their 
social position, that it has not been in their 
nature to make any display of promoting or 
defending their position. The church of our past 
was confident and polite, there for those who 
wanted it, but not so rude as to pursue anyone. 
Its views were historically proper and established ; 
it felt little need, therefore, to inculcate or defend 

This lack both of aggression and of defensive- 
ness derives in part from the fact that the Epis- 
copal church has never claimed any denomina- 
tional distinction that needed special schooling 

or promotion. There are no uniquely Episcopal 
dogmas to teach. If the Church is simply a ra- 
tional branch of the universal catholic tradition, 
then its children do not need special institutions; 
they may go for their education wherever they 
please and need not be defensive about 
"denominational" truths. 

For many Episcopalians, there may be no 
such thing as Christian education. "Episcopal" 
education is even less likely. A person may be 
Christian or not, but quite apart from that, truth 
is truth and education is education. As soon as 
the state began seriously to provide the latter, 
the Episcopal church began to withdraw from 
the business of higher education. 

Episcopalianism, however, has not been ini- 
mical to higher education. It has consistently 
been a cultured group, and to this day serious 

secular schools register a percentage of Episcopal 
students which is far in excess of the percentage 
of Episcopalians in the population at large. The 
principal reason why the other Episcopally- 
founded schools dropped the church is not that 
the church restricted them intellectually ; it is 
simply that the church did not support them 
financially. As they were forced increasingly to 
look elsewhere for support, it became evident 
that other sources were suspicious of church- 
owned schools. The schools then either yielded 
and closed their doors, or else they survived by 
severing their church connection. 

This frequently repeated phenomenon raises 
two questions: why is there so little outside sup- 
port for church-owned schools, and why has this 
history not repeated itself at Sewanee? 


Outside sources do not in general support 
education under church auspices primarily be- 
cause such education is generally not academic- 
ally respectable. Most church schools at the 
college level aren't very good, or at least they are 
not of the quality to which Sewanee aspires. 
Why? Because to most Americans, education 
with a prejudice, education with a drum to beat, 
doesn't sound like education in the full freedom 
of truth which we like to associate with the 
liberal arts. This is for Sewanee doubly ironic. 

This church has a long 
history of rational thinking, 
high standards, and 
reasonable attitudes 

On the one hand, even the most adamantly 
secular schools are prejudiced by definition. To 
rule out the immense heritage of theology and 
the serious debate of ethical values is prejudice 
indeed. And any school is slanting its education 
if it offers European history and not Chinese, if 
it requires math and not music, if it either allows 
or forbids fraternal organizations, and so on. On 
the other hand, the Episcopal church is probably 
less guilty of anti-intellectualism than most any 
other owners could be. This church has a long 
history of rational thinking, high standards, and 
reasonable attitudes. It has not been hampered 
by doctrinal narrowness, or at least no more so 
than the secular state. Evolution was taught at 
Sewanee from the very first (and by churchmen) 
and continued to be taught here throughout the 
period that it was illegal in the State schools. In 
fact Sewanee has never come under attack for 
conflict of doctrinal narrowness with academic 
freedom. If there is any abuse of influence here, 
it may lie in the other direction: academic free- 
dom at Sewanee has not entirely done justice to 
the church. 

It is a peculiar fact that a Sewanee education 
can be and often is entirely secular. The student 
may choose to let it be, and many students do 
so choose. Even our religion department is as 
secular as those of the state schools, and con- 
sciously so. The church is not guilty of threaten- 
ing or weakening the intellectual scene at 
Sewanee. On the contrary, the school has been 
allowed for many years virtually to ignore the 

The church, as an institution with genuine 
purpose and limited funds, must seriously consi- 
der whether it is "getting its money's worth" 
from its considerable investment in Sewanee. In 
more casual days it may have seemed justification 
enough to support a school of cultural and 
social refinement just because it was a good thing, 
a discriminating school, as it were, ad maiorem 
Dei gloriam. After all, whatever is good and true 
must be pleasing to God. This argument, how- 
ever, would also justify the church's owning and 
operating a ballet company, a distillery, or a 

cricket team, providing, of course, that they all 
be of the highest standards. Evidently, the 
founders had something more purposeful in 
mind, and the institution they proposed was to 
be distinctly an arm of the church. 

Professors and students who chose to come 
to Sewanee in its first twenty or thirty years did 
so primarily because it was a church school. One 
wonders (but politely does not ask) how many 
faculty or students come here today because it is 
a church institution. It is all too obvious that 
many (by no means all) come in spite of that 

Such a naughty comment should be quickly 
followed by a reminder that Sewanee is today as 
religiously oriented as it has been for the past 
fifty years (or longer). There is even some im- 
provement. Yet the question remains whether 
for these fifty or more years Sewanee has had 
the sort of significance to the church's mission 
that its founders intended and that its support 
implies. Having dropped so many other schools, 
why has the church continued to support this 
place where the religious influence in education 
is for the most part vestigial? 

Probably the most elementary factors in the 
church's continued ownership of Sewanee lie in 
legalisms. To begin with, by special enactment 
of the Tennessee legislature the University is 
chartered specifically "to be under the control 
and government of the Protestant Episcopal 
Church." The constitution asserts that "it 
must in all parts be under the sole and per- 
petual control of the Protestant Episcopal 
Church." In addition, the charter specifies that 
all donations or bequests (etc.) to the University 
made "upon the faith" of the Constitution 
cannot be altered even if the Constitution 
should be changed. In other words, since a large 
majority of the funds given to Sewanee (parti- 
cularly those for buildings) have always been 
and still are given because this is a church uni- 
versity, even a constitutional change would not 
allow their being used for purposes other than 
as the church shall govern. 

Furthermore, there is very little likelihood of 
creeping secularism in the ultimate government 
of the school, since the Board of Trustees (in 
whom all authority is vested) is required by the 
constitution to be over 98 per cent elected 
directly from and by the church. Clearly, then, 
the church is and will be in control here until 
such time as it decides of its own will that this 
educational endeavor is not worth continuing. 
It is a connection which cannot lightly be tossed 

It may be suggested that one reason the 
trustees have done so little to promote the 
"trust" placed in them by the church is that their 
terms of office are too short. Meetings are not 
frequent, and a trusteeship can easily expire be- 
fore the individual has had time to take a serious 
interest in the school. 

It is, after all, the secular 
schools that are limited 
by their prohibitions 

Times and conditions are changing. The 
Episcopal church is not going to continue in- 
definitely running a school here simply because 
it is a good school. There are plenty of good 
schools. In the more democratic and more realis- 
tic future, in the epoch of the tightened belt, the 
church will support Sewanee only if that support 
effects the offering of a truly Christian education. 
We must offer a liberal education of the highest 
quality, made even richer than is possible in the 
paralysis of secular restrictions. It is, after all, 
the secular schools that are limited by their 
prohibitions. The Christian school has the op- 
portunity and the obligation, indeed, the mission, 
of treating every subject in full recognition of 
its implications to values and morals. This is 
intelligent involvement in a genuinely ultimate 

Of course we cannot require belief, or im- 
pose adherence, or expect uniformity. But if the 
gospel of Christianity has any truth and worth, 
then the church should want and need to pro- 
mote most vigorously a unique institution where 
openness of inquiry and delight in freedom can 
be fully and richly nourished by active concern 
with ultimate values. In fact, if the church is not 
interested in such a program, then it has lost a 
large part of its heritage and purpose. 

The future is not bright for a church which 
claims truth but hasn't the interest or conviction 
to offer its claim to inquisitive youth. The future 
is not bright for Sewanee if we do not actively 
seek both faculty and students, whatever their 
religious persuasion, who find this special brand 
of cultural environment attractive. We must 
attract and serve people from every background, 
but we must deliberately appeal to those who 
are genuinely interested in the Christian chal- 
lenges involved in every aspect of learning. This 
is our real value and our real opportunity within 
the generous and intelligent latitude of the ra- 
tional Episcopal tradition. 

If Sewanee can grow more fully into this 
role, as the founders intended, it can thrive. 
Such a product is marketable, such a mission is 
valid, and such a school would be unique. If, 
however, we continue in uninspired imitation of 
the secular schools, we are on the losing end of 
a fierce competition, we do not justify our exis- 
tence, and we probably cannot keep our support.

The Quarter 
of Sunshine 

The grid season at Sewanee was not 
all sunshine and champagne this 
year, but fans may be telling stories 
for a long time about the last quar- 
ter of the Austin College game when 
the young Tigers of 1977 suddenly 
found an offense and leapt (almost 
literally) from the jaws of defeat. 

Coach Shirley Majors had told 
us to be patient this year, and the 
loyal began to understand after two 
games without a score, much less a 
victory. The drought went on to 10 
quarters, then into the 12th as Aus- 
tin College built a 21-0 lead and 
seemed ready to give us short shrift 
and go back to Texas. 

The sky over Sewanee was get- 
ting that gray-aftemoon look when 
freshman quarterback Tom Clark 
hit "old pro" Nino Austin with a 
31-yard pass inside the visitors' 20. 
Two plays later Ricky Dale Harper, 
a gung-ho runningback, snagged a 
pass in the end zone for Sewanee's 
first score of the season. 

A metallic roar rose out of the 
student section where feet pounded 
the stands. Fans on the fence paused 
in their conversations. 

Moments later Stephen Puckette 
recovered a fumble on the Austin 

19. Clark quickly hit Harper again 
in the end zone, and the score was 

The Kangaroos then started a 
more serious drive until Puckette 
found another fumble. The Tigers 
had to punt but quickly got the ball 
back when Grayson Hall fell on a 
loose ball at the visitors' 10. On 
first down, Clark zinged one off 
Nino Austin's fingertips at the back 
of the end zone. But Harper made a 
circus catch on second down, and 
Sewanee was only three points be- 

With seven minutes to play, 
Sewanee began a drive to the Austin 

20, losing the ball on downs, but 
on the next play, Puckette stripped 
an Austin runner of the ball. Paul 
Minor recovered it on the 19. 

With Mark Lawrence replacing 
Clark at quarterback, the Tigers 
gained short yardage in two plays. 
Then Lawrence came back with a 
pass, going oyer the middle to Har- 
per, who lunged over a defender 
into the end zone, and Sewanee led 

Don't go home, fans. Austin 
still had time to drive almost the 
length of the field before the Tigers 
took over on their own six with 49 
seconds to play. 

With special recognition being 
given to his younger heroes, Coach 
Majors praised Nino Austin and Joe 
Shults, his premier pass catchers, 
for guiding enemy defenders away 
from Harper. 

Tigers Have 
Muscle (Brains) 

Among the lessons Don Millington 
learned in his first year as Tiger 
basketball coach, the most impor- 
tant may have been to take advan- 
tage of his players' brains. 

"My basic philosophy is to 
stick to one offense and one de- 
fense," Coach Millington said. "If 
you play the man-to-man, you live 
or die with the man-to-man. 

"But last year that didn't work. 
With the caliber of ball we play, 
we've got to keep the opposition 
guessing," he said. 

So this season the Tigers will do 
a lot of different things offensively 
and defensively. 

"If our kids were not as intel- 
ligent, we couldn't do that, but it's 
working," he said. 

Coach Millington has another 
advantage this year. The Tigers have 
experience. All five starters from 
last season are back, including all- 
district center Harry Cash, who tied 
a Sewanee single-season rebound

the all-time scoring list. 

Even so, Sewanee won't neces- 
sarily have the same starters this 
winter. The old reserves and two or 
three freshmen are pushing the 
front line. 

Although Coach Millington is 
non-committal on what sort of 
record he expects this year, he ob- 
viously wants an improvement on 
last season's 9-15 record. Rose- 
Hulman won the conference title 
with an 8-0 mark last year, but this 
year Coach Millington says the 
winner could easily be 6-2 or even 
5-3. Sewanee might be there. 

Leaving Them 
in Our Wake 

None of Sewanee's athletic teams 
has enjoyed quite as much success 
recently as the canoe team, which 
this fall on the Catawba River in 
North Carolina won the South- 
eastern Intercollegiate Canoe Cham- 
pionships for the sixth consecutive 

Incidentally, the championships 
have been held for only six years. 

Sewanee swamped 12 other 
teams for the title, and the hero 
was a coed, the University's first 
student woman trustee ever— 
Catherine (Cat) Potts, a junior 
physics major (so she'll be back 
next year).

the wild-water race by five minutes. 
Two of her victories were in solo 
competition. In the other two, she 
combined with Phil Williams for 
victories in slalom and wild-water 
tandem races. 

Frank Marchman joined faculty- 
coach Hugh Caldwell in the men's 
tandem slalom to give Sewanee its 
only other first place. 

Sewanee racked up 207 points 
to 155 for William and Mary and 
135 for Mars Hill. The University 
of Tennessee was fifth. 

Dean Stephen E. Puckette, 
usually a team regular, missed the 
competition because of Parents' 
Weekend. But 15 team members 
placed in the competition. 

Sports Briefs 

"We have the youngest wrestling 
team in the U. S.," said Coach 
Horace Moore, whose squad will 
open the 1978 season in the Mid- 
South Tournament January 27-28 
at Middle Tennessee State Univer- 

The Tigers are without a single 
senior and have one junior on the 
team; so there is an air of uncertain- 
ty this season. Nevertheless, Tom 
Jenkins of East Ridge, Tennessee, 
who wrestled last season in the 
142-pound class, should be one of 
two or three to qualify for the 
nationals. Sewanee was 6-5 last 

The Sewanee swimming team is 
thin this season. It's a recurrent 
theme for Tiger varsity squads. 

Scott Ferguson, an All- American 
two years ago, is back to captain 
the team, despite being a junior, 
and Earl Ware, a freshman from 
Tampa, gives the squad some youth- 
ful strength. But Coach Ted Biton- 
do has only nine swimmers and two 
divers out for the team. Six are 
freshmen, and only Ware among 
them had high school experience. 

A 12-member women's gymnastics 
team has started practice under 
Coach Marian England for the 1978 
season that opens in late January. 
Kathy Herbert, a Nashville sopho- 
more, is a top prospect in all three 
events— floor exercise, balance 
beam, and uneven bar. Sewanee will 
meet Furman, Maryville and the 
University of Tennessee at Martin 
in home-and-home competition, 
aiming to improve on last season's 
3-3 record. 

With the second official season of 
Sewanee women's basketball under 
way, Coach Pam Lampley notes a 
100-per-cent better outlook. Her 
seniors, Becky Jordan of River 
Ridge, Louisiana, Jeanne Dortch of 
Nashville, and Bett Stogsdill of 
Rembert, South Carolina, are pro- 
viding leadership. The squad is play- 
ing some fast break and tight "man- 
to-man" defense. 



Ayres Given Leadership Award 

Robert M. Ayres, the acting vice- 
chancellor, was honored along with 
16 other persons October 31 in 
Nashville at the 27th annual meet- 
ing of the Religious Heritage of 

Mr. Ayres was presented the 
"Business and Professional Leader 
of the Year Award" in recognition 
of the "impact he has made on na- 
tional and community life through 
the application of principles of our 
religious heritage." 

The awards dinner, climaxing a 
three-day gathering by the associa- 
tion, was held at the Hyatt Regency 

Other award winners included 
Andrew Athens, president of Metron 
Steel Corp., Chicago; Nathan Hub- 
ley, president of Carters Ink Co., 
Cambridge, Massachusetts; Dr. 
Robert Schuller, clergyman, lecturer 
and syndicated columnist, and Mrs. 
Henry Cannon (Minnie Pearl). 

Fine Distinction 

Being Christian is not exactly being 
like Jesus, the Rev. C. FitzSimons 
Allison admonished his audience, 
during the DuBose Lectures this fall. 
And he told the story of a church- 
man, pondering a difficult problem, 
saying to another: "What would 
Jesus have done in this situation?" 
"Jesus," the second person an- 
swered, "would not have gotten 
himself into this situation." 

Popular Authors 

A survey among 200 clergy attend- 
ing the College of Preachers in 
Washington, D. C. showed that 
among the most frequently read 
authors, two are members of the 
School of Theology faculty at 
Sewanee— the Very Rev. Urban T. 
Holmes, dean of the school, and 
the Rev. Marion J. Hatchett. 

Culture in High Gear 

The Experimental Film Club at 
Sewanee has had a full season this 
semester with weekly showings of 
foreign and American films, many 
of them award winners. 

As Scott Bates, professor of 
French and faculty coordinator, 
said at one showing, these are films 
that have had their greatest influence 
on other film makers. 

One of the first films of the year 
was "Occurence at Owl Creek 
Bridge," a stunning interpretation 
of Ambrose Bierce's story of a Civil 
War hanging. 

This was part of the Art of the 
Short Film series made available to 
the University through the South 
Carolina Arts Commission. 

Art exhibitions are regular fare 
this year at at least three locations 
on the University Campus— the Fine 
Arts Gallery in Guerry Hall, St. 
Luke's Gallery in Bairnwick and the 
Bishop's Common Gallery. 

In the Fine Arts Gallery, a 
showing of sculpture and drawings 
by Worden Day, visiting professor 
and artist, was followed by an ex- 
hibition of drawings and prints by 
Chandler Cowden and Angelo Corte 
of Washington, D. C, and ceramic 
sculpture by Roy Overcast of Nash- 
ville, an artist with the Tennessee 
Arts Commission. 

The sculpture of Barbara Hughes 
of Sewanee and religious paintings 
by Gloria Thomas were displayed in 
Bairnwick this fall. The major 
Bishop's Common show of the fall 
was a one-man exhibition by 
Michael Smith of Southern Illinois 
University at Edwardsville. 

Flutes Featured 

The Sewanee Summer Music Center 
was featured in the last issue of a 
national music magazine entitled 
Woodwind World, which goes to 
teachers and performers of wood- 
wind, brass and percussion. 

The Flute Choir of the Music 
Center was pictured on the cover, 
and the article inside gave credit to 
the Center and Martha McCrory, 
director, for premiering works for 
flute choir. 

Participating in performances 
with the Flute Choir as guest faculty 
members were Mr. and Mrs. Mark 
Thomas. Mr. Thomas, in addition 
to giving concerts worldwide, is 
vice-president of the Armstrong 
Flute Company. He was formerly 
a flute instructor on the SSMC 

Cathy Potts, C'79, of Dallas is the first 
woman student elected to the Board of 
Trustees. Cathy is pursuing a double 
major in physics and math. 

No Cold Blood, Please 

University students contributed the 
bulk of 321 pints of blood for the 
November Red Cross Bloodmobile 

The total easily exceeded the 
goal of 250 pints, and 450 volun- 
teers were turned away because 
they had colds or had been taking 
antibiotics. A bit earlier in the year 
and the Red Cross would have had 
to bring another truck. 

Shakespeare Visit 

The duPont Library displayed this 
fall the Folger Shakespeare Library 
Exhibit, which included the original 
edition of Midsummer Night's 
Dream, published in 1600, and a 
copy of each of the first four folios 
published between 1623 and 1685. 
Sewanee was the only place in 
Tennessee these works were exhi- 

An Old Acquaintance 

Former Senator Margaret Chase 
Smith of Maine visited Sewanee in 
November, during her travels for 
the Woodrow Wilson Foundation. 
She delivered a public lecture on 
"Women in Power Politics" and 
spoke to a political science class. 

Coventry Visitors 

Three guests from Coventry Cathe- 
dral in England visited Sewanee in 
November, during the week of re- 
conciliation of the Community of 
the Cross of Nails. 

They were the Rev. Kenyon 
Wright, canon of Coventry, the 
Very Rev. H. C. N. Williams, cathe- 
dral provost, and the Rev. Eloise E. 
Lester, T'76, director of the Inter- 
national Community of the Cross 
of Nails. 

In addition to delivering a ser- 
mon in All Saints' Chapel, Canon 
Wright led a forum on Third 
World theology. 

Auxiliary Honors 

The Emerald-Hodgson Hospital 
Auxiliary presented citations to 
two members, during its annual fall 
luncheon. Mrs. Preston Brooks was 
honored for 50 years of service, and 
Mrs. George Falk was recognized 
for her outstanding leadership in 
the organization.

Gorgas, Tamer of Plagues 



by Anne Cook 

The Academy homecoming had great potential for disaster this year. 

For the first time parents and alumni returned on the same weekend. 
At the local inns parents, desirous of a good night's rest, were housed near 
alumni, devoted to camaraderie, which usually gets better as the hour 
grows later. We winced slightly. At least all the motel rooms were filled, 
indicating a good turnout. 

Saturday arrived— a dark and rain-filled day. Parked at crazy angles, 
cars formed a jagged line up the driveway to Hamilton Hall. License plates 
represented more than a dozen states. 

Inside Hamilton alumni met, then crisscrossed the halls with parents 
on their way to classrooms. Students zipped around the halls, proud to 
be showing their school to younger brothers or sisters. 

Overheard at the art exhibition: 

"Now, Mother, which do you truly think is the best picture? I'll give 
you a hint, look upper left." 

The weather grew steadily worse, as parents struggled to keep appoint- 
ments and meetings began to run late. Before noon, a power blackout that 
affected the whole mountain plunged lower Cravens into darkness. Stu- 
dents and faculty sat in the gloom of an unlit stage for Task Force presen- 
tations to alumni and parents. 

"What can I say," observed headmaster Rod Welles by way of intro- 
duction, "it's so nice not to see you?" 

Dressed like a French film director, Latin instructor Ralph Waldron 
kept appearing out of nowhere, worried that the audience would fail to 
see the humor in a skit Task Force One had prepared. 

#The kitchen in upper Cravens was preparing to serve 400 parents, 
students, alumni, and friends when the blackout occurred. Said Jane 
Gallaher, food service director, "Your rolls won't be heated, that's the 
only thing." 

Four hundred were expected, but 500 shared a chicken and roast- 
beef buffet. Remarks by the headmaster and vice-chancellor set the 
task of raising $150,000 upon alumni and parents if the Academy is to 
maintain its mark of excellence. 

Many Academy grads found the new museum in the old Quintard 
chapel a nostalgic experience. The brainchild of Everett Smith, the. 
museum has pictures, uniforms, flags, and annuals from military days 
to the present. It proved to be a fine place to spend a rainy afternoon, 
especially when the football game had to be postponed because the 
field was under water. When power was restored to the mountain, the 
museum featured a film of the cadet corps made in the late sixties. 

That evening the driving rain changed to a gentle mist. Dancing in 
lower Cravens brought to an end a day saturated with opportunity and 

One suggestion, if you plan on coming next year— bring a raincoat 
and a flashlight! 

Mrs. Cook is the wife of the Academy's dean of students. 

That the Panama Canal has become 
prominent in the news leads those 
around Sewanee to recall that the 
famous Maj. Gen. William C. Gorgas 
was a graduate of Sewanee Military 
Academy and 'the University's 
College of Arts and Sciences (Class 
of 1875). 

It was the work of Gorgas in 
eradicating yellow fever and malaria 
in Panama that made construction 
of the canal possible. The French 
had abandoned their own canal 
project a few years before because 
yellow fever was killing workmen 
by the thousands. 

While a student at the Academy, 
young Gorgas had his first serious 
contact with yellow fever when he 
and three classmates answered a 
call for medical assistance in New 
Orleans, where there was an 
epidemic. Two of the cadets died 
of the disease. 

Years later, after finishing 
medical school at Bellevue Hospital 

That Gears 
Will Mesh 

John V. Wendling, Academy 
physics instructor, is now the 
liaison faculty member between the 
Academy and the University main- 
tenance department. 

Until this year the Academy has 
been responsible for its own main- 
tenance. However, with the start of 
the new academic year, Wendling 
has been setting priorities with 
George Hoback, supervisor of main- 
tenance personnel at the Academy, 
and operations are being meshed. 
Hoback has been an Academy 
employe for 34 years. 

Major responsibilities are over- 
seeing the care of vehicles and 
dining-hall facilities. For Wendling, 
these come in addition to his 
coordination of the student self- 
help program and duties in the 
classroom, dormitories and non- 
academic student activities. 

Some maintenance repairs are 
made in the Academy physics lab 
where Wendling practices photog- 
raphy and occasionally helps stu- 
dents repair their stereo equipment. 

(now a part of New York Univer- 
sity) and joining the Army Medical 
Corps, it seemed disaster had struck 
when Gorgas contracted yellow 
fever himself. It turned out to be 
a blessing in disguise. He recovered, 
and his immunity made him eligible 
for service in the yellow fever areas. 

He was a middle-aged, virtually 
unknown Army doctor, however, 
when he went to Cuba to attempt 
to help with that country's acute 
yellow fever problem. Within a 
short time he was credited with 
ridding Cuba and parts of the 
Southern United States of yellow 
fever. Essentially he drained the 
swamps where the stegomyia 
mosquito, carrier of the disease, 
was breeding. 

Sent to Panama as chief sanita- 
tion officer, Gorgas performed the 
same sort of feat. It was an ac- 
complishment in human engineer- 
ing, it was said, as impressive as 
construction of the canal itself. 

Before his death in 1920, Gen. 
Gorgas had an international repu- 
tation exceeded, perhaps, only 
by the fame of Presidents Theodore 
Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson. 
He died in England, was knighted 
on his deathbed by King George V, 
and his body was returned to 
the United States on a British 

Gorgas had close ties with 
Sewanee from childhood. His father 
was Confederate Brig. Gen. Josiah 
Gorgas, who was headmaster of 
the Academy and University vice- 

The younger Gorgas was 
offered the vice-chancellorship 
himself in 1912. Though saying he 
wished to retire someday to Sewa- 
nee, he chose instead to go to 
South Africa, where his report on 
health conditions in the Kimberley 
area was credited with saving 
hundreds of thousands of lives. He 
was later named U. S. surgeon 

His accomplishments are com- 
memorated in stained glass in All 
Saints' Chapel. Gorgas Hall at the 
Academy honors him and his father. 


TEE Needs No Sugar 

Probably no program at the School 
of Theology in Sewanee has stirred 
quite as much excitement off the 
mountain as Theological Education 
by Extension. 

First, it's a program for lay 
people. That immediately puts the 
seminary much closer to parishion- 
ers, who have traditionally known 
of the school, if at all, only through 
their priests. 

Second, the course is so inten- 
sive- in Biblical and theological 
study and so relevant to the every- 
day lives of people, the extension 
students themselves are spreading 
the fame of Sewanee. 

In less than three years of its 
existence, the extension program 
is reaching 169 mentor groups and 
1,400 lay people in the United 
States and abroad— as far north as 
Alaska and as far south as Nicara- 
gua—and a group in Australia will 
soon be included. Spanish trans- 
lation of the course material is 
being considered. 

The development of the pro- 
gram has been guided from its in- 
ception by the Rev. Charles Winters. 
He has taught at Sewanee for 22 
years, preparing students for ordi- 
nation, but he calls his work with 
the TEE program "the most grati- 
fying thing I have ever done." 

The concept of the extension 
program grew out of the 1960s 
when enrollment in seminaries was 
down. The question arose, Dr. 
Winters said: "What are we in 
business for?" 

Notice was taken of a program 
in Guatemala, where a Presbyterian 
seminary was being "taken to the 
students." Sewanee proposed, 
however, to develop a course for 
laity, and two years to develop the 
program were planned. 

Word got around. The bishop of 
Alabama told Sewanee leaders: "I 
don't want to wait for any develop- 
ment program, I want it now." 
Demand became so strong, Dr. 
Winters faced a crisis of preparing 
material and organizing groups. 

When Flower Ross, Dr. Winters' 
administrative assistant, arrived in 
July 1976 to help with the load, 
the program was practically at sea 
in St. Luke's Hall, home of the 
seminary. Work was done where 
space could be found for the 
moment. The Lay ministry pro- 
gram now is housed in Bairnwick 
Center, a Sewanee-style brown- 
stone house about 100 yards 
behind St. Luke's Hall. 

While it was estimated the 
program might gross at best 
$50,000 a year, total receipts 
this past year were $161,000. 

It is a time of the rising laity, 
Dr. Winters said. The laity wants 
more than it has been getting in 
theological training— in Biblical 
study and lay-ministry develop- 
ment. "These people have been 
starving," Dr. Winters said. 

The academic food for these 
new students has a characteristic 
Sewanee flavor. 

"Essentially, we are bottling the 
curriculum used in the School of 
Theology," Dr. Winters explained, 
although Flower Ross said 
"bottling" makes it sound easier 
than it is. 

The basic four-year course is 
organized around mentor groups, 
meeting once a week or twice a 
month and led by specially trained 
mentors, most of whom are clergy, 
persons with a background in theo- 
logical education. A group may be 
sponsored by a church or non- 
church organization or individuals. 

Each student reads and studies 
at home. In the mentor-group meet- 
ings, however, discussions are aimed 
at relating the material to the lives 
of the students— at developing their 
personal lay ministries. 

The study material tells the 
story of the people of God chrono- 
logically from earliest times to the 
present, weaving into that story the 
theological, liturgical, and ethical 
lessons of mankind. It is an inten- 
sive study in the Judaeo-Christian 
tradition, and it requires a commit- 
ment— three to five hours of home 
study a week. 

In the context of the mentor 
groups, however, the program is 
"bringing the news of redemption 
to the world," Ms. Ross said. It is 
in the group that the lessons are 
related to everyday life. 

"Everything we do is ministry," 
she said. "The only question is 
whether we do it well or poorly. A 
study of the salvation history in the 
context of our ministry causes us to 
be more critical of our decisions." 

Arrington Lectures 

This year's second series of 
Arrington Lectures of the School 
of Theology will feature the Rev. 
Vernon E. Johnson, director of 
the Johnson Institute for chemical 
addicts in Minneapolis, Minnesota. 
The lectures will be held February 

The Rev. Mr. Johnson, author 
of the book "111 Quit Tomorrow," 
will speak on alcoholism and lead 
seminars during his visit. 

His lectures also are being 
sponsored by the Human Ecology 
Project at Sewanee.

Anglican Recovery of Evangelism 

"Anglicanism is at its heart evan- 
gelical," said the Rev. C. FitzSimons 
Allison, rector of Grace Church, 
New York City, in his DuBose Lec- 
ture at Sewanee. 

Thus his theme did not clash 
particularly with that of co-lecturer, 
the Very Rev. O. C. Edwards, dean 
of Seabury-Western Theological 

"Anglican Reformation," he 
said, "was essentially a matter . . . 
of the recovery of the evangelical 
doctrine of Holy Scripture." 

William Tyndale, Thomas 
Cranmer, Richard Hooker, and 

John Donne "personify for us the 
distinctive evangelical wisdom, 
balance and genius of Anglican 
evangelism," the Rev. Mr. Allison 

They overcome, he indicated, 
the vulgarity Episcopalians so often 
associate with evangelism. 

The DuBose Lectures, delivered 
during the two-day St. Luke's Con- 
vocation and School of Theology 
homecoming October 19-20, will be 
published in a forthcoming issue 
of St. Luke 's Journal.

Sewanee Clubs: 
Getting Involved 

The upsurge in Sewanee Club 
activity was characterized in the 
first gathering November 17 of the 
Sewanee Club of West Tennessee. 
A preliminary gathering in October 
was the spark. Douglas Paschall, 
C'66, Sewanee assistant English 
professor, spoke at the November 
wine and cheese party at the Elks 
Lodge in Jackson. Bruce McMillan, 
C'76, was elected president. 

The Sewanee Club of San 
Antonio held an informal barbecue 
supper October 16 in honor of 
Robert M. Ayres, the acting vice- 
chancellor. The supper was held at 
Cathedral Park. 

The Sewanee Club of Birming- 
ham used the Birmingham Botanical 
Gardens for its cocktail-supper 
November 17. The affable Robert S. 
(Red) Lancaster, professor and 
former dean, was the speaker. 
Michael H. Poe, C'52, the club pres- 
ident, signaled this as the annual 
Founders' Day observance. 

Dr. Lancaster also spoke at the 
September 30 New York Club 
meeting at the rectory of Grace 
Church.- The Rev. and Mrs. C. Fitz- 
Simons Allison were host and 
hostess to about 55 alumni and 
guests. Plans were made to experi- 
ment with three separate organiza- 
tions for New York, Connecticut 
and New Jersey, with Bill Moore, 
C'59, Brian Porter, C'71, and Jack 
Wright, C'54, the presidents of each 
respectively. R. Lee Glenn III, C'57, 
has been president of the New York 
Club for two years. 

The Sewanee Club of Central 
Mississippi had' a kick-off /victory 
beer party September 24 at Doug 
Stirling's house in preparation for 
the Tiger-Millsaps football game 
that afternoon. 

The Greater Memphis Club had 
a tailgate party October 15 at "the 
school by the zoo" prior to the 
Sewanee-Southwestern game. 

The Chattanooga Club sponsor- 
ed a bus trip to Sewanee for the 
homecoming game with Washington 
and Lee. The group picnicked at 
Lake Cheston before the game. 

And the Sewanee Club of St. 
Louis held a tailgate party and 
picnic November 12 prior to 
the Sewanee-Washington University 
game at Francis Field. 

The Central Florida Club had a 
barbecue-and-beer party October 
30 at the Diocesan House in Winter 
Park. Doug Paschall and John 
Bratton made the trip from Sewa- 
nee to talk with fellow alums. 

The Sewanee Club of Central 
Alabama held an organizational 
meeting October 27 at the home of 

James and Vivian Scott in Mont- 
gomery. Douglas Seiters, dean of 
men, spoke to the group. An honor- 
ary degree is pending for the 
designer of the invitation. 

The Tennessee Valley Sewanee 
Club held its fall party at the home 
of Merritt and Pam Wikle, Jr. of 
Huntsville. Lee Prout, C'61, is 
club president. 

The Tampa Bay Club held an 
organizational meeting September 
20 in the board room of the Second 
National Bank. 

The Sewanee Club of New 
Orleans had its August shrimp-and- 
beer party on the lawn of Brooke 
and Mary Dickson. Feild Gomila, 
C'61, is the new president. 

Oh My 

Homecoming, with its sheaf of 
campus events this fall, needed 
only one touch for perfection, and 
it got it— Eden-like weather. Even 
year-round Sewanee residents 
were gasping at the autumn reds 
and yellows that glowed in the sun. 

Many alums were up early 
October 22 for the Associated

winners held no fewer than four 
club events during the year, 
including a keg party last spring

Columbia. A party also was held for 
students and prospective students. 

Seven alumni exomati keys 
were presented to those visiting 
who have been alumni for more 
than fifty years— the Rev. Joseph R.

Afterward came the alumni 
luncheon in the "new" Bishop's 
Common. The food was top-notch 
and the company almost like old 
times, maybe better. 

Later at McGee Field (Harris 
Stadium) the Tigers fought back 
from 14-0 down to tie the score 
but lost in the last 41 seconds to 
Washington and Lee. Nevertheless, 
the game was a happening. From 
the halftime on almost as many 
people were socializing (or what- 
ever) on the track as were sitting 
in the stands. It was a capacity 

Then came the class reunions 
and a reception for Mrs. B. Humph- 
reys McGee and her family and 
friends. The ATOs, who, like the 
other fraternity men, don't 
usually need an excuse for a party, 
had their excuse anyway: the 
chapter centennial. The parties 
ground persistently into the night 
or morning. 

If there was really a hitch, it 
came early, at Friday evening's 
buffet dinner-dance at Cravens Hall. 
The band failed to show. Well, 
some people said they couldn't 
talk over a band anyway.

St. Luke's 

The School of Theology gathered 
an unusually large crowd of alumni 
and guests for St. Luke's Convo- 
cation (homecoming) October 

The Rev. Robert E. Ratelle, 
T'47, rector of St. James' Church, 
Jackson, Mississippi, was elected 
Alumni Association president, 
replacing the Rev. Joel Pugh. 
William S. Brettmann, C'59, T'62, 
rector of Grace Church, Orange 
Park, Florida, was elected vice- 
president. They will serve two-year 

These will be important years, 
because the seminary will be 
celebrating its centennial next year 

The Alumni Association is 
asking each member to contribute 
$15 to help cover the cost of 
publishing a history of the School 
of Theology, which is being written 
by the Rev. Donald S. Armen- 
trout, associate professor of church 

The greatest excitement of the 
convocation centered on the 
DuBose Lectures. The Rev. C. Fitz- 
Simons Allison and the Very Rev. 
O. C. Edwards spoke extensively 
and intensively on evangelism. 
Panel and group discussions follow- 
ed the lectures. The lectures wiH be 
published in a forthcoming issue 
of St Luke's Journal. 

The Very Rev. Urban T. 
Holmes, School of Theology dean, 
said it was the best attended St. 
Luke's Convocation since he came 
to Sewanee five years ago. 


Honored as the oldest returning 
graduates at homecoming and 
parents' weekend October 8-9 at 
the Academy were William L. 
(Bill) Ware, A'17, of New Orleans 
and Sewanee, and Julian B. Adoue, 
Jr., A'20, of Ponca City, Oklahoma. 

Ware, a retired Navy captain, 
was accompanied by his wife and 
younger brother, W. Porter Ware, 

Several generations of Adoues 
have attended the Academy since 
earliest days. 

The class of '67 had the largest 
percentage representation at home- 
coming. At the forefront was 
Joseph E. Gardner, Jr. of Houston. 
Gardner, an executive with the 
Coastal States Gas Corporation, 
was re-elected president of the 
Sewanee Academy Alumni Associ- 

The other officers are Bill 
Austin, A'46, C'52, senior vice- 
president; Brooke Dickson, A'65, 
vice-president for classes; and the 
Rev. Fred Gough, A'58. Three 
new alumni named to the Board 
of Governors are H. L. (Tom) 
Sebring, A'48; Monte Slodmore, 
A'64, and Richard Powers, A'65. 

Approximately 85 alumni and 
their wives attended a dinner held 
in their honor at the Bishop's 
Common lounge October 8. 

The next meeting of the Board 
of Governors will be held the 
Saturday morning of the Academy

Birmingham Hosts 
Prospective Students 

Martin R. Tilson, Jr., C'74, reports 
that about 20 Birmingham alumni 
and their wives and dates were 
hosts at a party October 13 for 40 
area high school seniors who are 
good prospects for Sewanee ad- 
mission next fall. The party was 
held at the Highland Racquet Club 
where Martin said the relaxed at- 
mosphere allowed the students to 

mix with the Sewanee grads and 
some current students and ask 
questions. The project was done 
with the assistance of the college 
admissions office, which provided 
the names of prospects and lined 
up Sewanee students to help.

Student Externs Need Insight 

If you are an alumnus or even just a friend of Sewanee, you may be 
interested in helping with a program being started by the University's 
career services office. 

To give students a better understanding of the careers they are 
choosing, the University is seeking business and professional people 
who would invite students into their offices for one or more days 
of observation. 

This procedure would be different from an intern program- 
hence it's called the Sewanee Extern Program— because it would 
require no pay from the alumnus or friend. It may also require 
only a small amount of time, depending on how much time the 
volunteer has to talk with the student and answer questions. 

Mrs. Dorothea Wolf, career services associate, said she believes 
students could make their first extern visits by spring break, March 
22 through April 5. For others an extern visit during the summer 
may work better. 

Comments may be addressed to the University of the South, 
Career Services Office. The form provided below may help you in 
your response. But Mrs. Wolf said her office would appreciate any 
letters from interested persons and suggestions about the program.

Alumni are listed under the graduating 
class with which they entered, unless they 
have other preferences. When they have 
attended more than one unit— Academy, 
College, School of Theology, Graduate

College, for example, are urged to note 
the period four years earlier for class-

By Edward D. Sloan, Jr., A'46 

Please hush a minute, and I'll tell 
you a story about Sewanee Military 

Last month I went to home- 
coming and talked to Julien Adoue, 
who was in the Academy class of 
1920. Charlotte and I were standing 
in front of Quintard Barracks; I ask- 
ed him how it had burned in 1919. 
He was anxious to talk about it. He 
said the true story has never been 
told and that it was going to be a 
chapter in his autobiography, soon 
to be published by Random House, 
titled To Hell with Caution. 

I might have a few details wrong, 
but this is what he told me. Gus 
Smith was there in the fire too; he 
can straighten me out. 

In 1919 we had just won World 
War I. The military was in good 
odor. The cadet corps was booming 
under the superintendency of Joe 
Dalton of VMI who became a 
major general in World War II. The 
military department had put the 
corps in feathers and pompoms. 
Discipline was more strict than at 
West Point. 

In January 1919 Teddy Roose- 
velt died. Teddy was popular with 
the military and with the cadets. 
When school started in the fall of 
1919, the cadets decided that 
Teddy's birthday, October 27, 
must be a grand holiday and started 

The academic department and 
the military department were always 
fussing at each other. The academic 
department told the cadets that the 
holiday was approved provided the 
military department approved. Nice 
little trap they set. 

The military department got 
mad and dilly dallied trying to find 
a way to retaliate against the aca- 
demic department. Not until supper 
October 26 did the cadet first cap- 
tain announce that there would be 
no holiday. 

The armory in the basement 
was full of war surplus ammunition,

but the armory was being enlarged, 
and some ammunition was stored in 
the attic with some old mattresses. 

Well, the cadets rioted, threw 
all their soup bowls at the faculty 
table, seized the armory, and drove 
all the faculty across the street with 
bayonets. Teddy would have been 
proud. The cadets taught classes for 
five days before they allowed the 
faculty and the bread trucks to re- 
turn to campus. 

A few nights later the cadet first 
captain read a special order at sup- 
per expelling 35 cadets for treason 
and confining the remainder to bar- 
racks for a month. 

Late that night a cadet smelled 
smoke in the attic and gave the 
alarm. A faculty member burst out 
of his tower room with his pistol 
cocked, thinking he was going to be 
lynched. About that time the am- 
munition in the attic started pop- 

Mass confusion. Julien Adoue 
said he went down the fire escape ; 
the barracks were gutted by the 
fire. Julien said he never knew which 
cadet set fire in the old mattresses. 

The academy moved to Florida 
the winter of 1919, and Joe Dalton 
found another job. 

Never again did the cadets have 
bayonets or ammunition. Teddy 
Roosevelt's day had gone with the

David F. McNeeley 

Following a Tradition 

There already are certain parallels between the life of William Gorgas, 
of Panama Canal fame, and the story of another Sewanee graduate, 
David F. McNeeley, who left the mountain only three and a half 
years ago to pursue a career in medicine. 

McNeeley is a student at the Tulane University School of Medi- 
cine and Tulane's School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. 

His research on tropical filariasis, a group of infections caused by 
a parasite, is drawing attention from the scientific community. The 
threadlike roundworm parasites may cause swelling of the lymph 
glands (elephantiasis of the legs is a better known condition), or 
blindness. An intermediate host for these roundworms is the mos- 

Since 1975 McNeeley has been a member of the staff of Holy 
Cross Hospital, Leogane, Haiti. In the summer of 1975, he served as 
interim assistant administrator of the hospital. 

The following year his research on filariasis in northern Haiti 
resulted in an article, "Filariasis in Haiti," published in the Journal of 
Parasitology. This fall he returned to Haiti to continue this research, 
a trip sponsored by Tulane's International Center for Medical Re- 

For three months this winter and spring, he will be studying 
tropical medicine in Kenya, East Africa under a medical assistance 
fellowship. Then he will return to complete his studies at Tulane in 
April and May for his M.D. degree and his master's degree in public 
health and tropical medicine. 

McNeeley has published another paper, "A Case of Leprosy at 
Charity Hospital, New Orleans," in Southern Medical Journal. And 
he has written a yet unpublished paper on Burhitt's Lymphoma in 
Louisiana. This lymphoma is the most common childhood cancer in 
parts of Africa and New Guinea but is rare in other parts of the 

In a recent letter to Dr. Harry C. Yeatman, Sewanee professor of 
biology, McNeeley said he will begin a pediatric residency in July. 
When the residency is completed, he added, he hopes to combine his 
interests in pediatrics and tropical medicine by working in tropical 
areas overseas. 

McNeeley speaks French and Haitian Creole fluently and is work- 
ing to learn Swahili. He studied a lot of French at Sewanee. 

A native of Knoxville and Norris, Tennessee, he received his B.A. 
Degree from Sewanee magna cum laude in 1974, with honors in 
biology. He was elected Phi Beta Kappa in 1973. 

While at Sewanee, he was a member of the board of directors and 
staff of the Sewanee Youth Center and in 1972-73 was president of 
the board. He also was active with the Jump Off Meeting of the 
Religious Society of Friends (Quakers). 

From 1968-1974 he was manager and staff member of the sum- 
mer recreation program and summer music camp of the Holy Trinity 
School, Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Holy Trinity School is directed by the 
Episcopal Society of St. Margaret, of which McNeeley became an 
associate in 1975.

Franke Keating 

Eugene M. Kayden 


Like a white stone lying within a well. 
So lies in me one single memory. 
I have no heart for striving any longer, 
So great my grief, so great my ecstasy. 

It seems that anyone on looking into 
My eyes would see it lying clear and pale. 
And, having seen, would grow sadder, graver 
Than one who listens to a mournful tale. 

I know the gods had power to turn the living 
To moveless things yet leave the spirit free : 
That splendid sorrows may endure forever, 
You live, transfigured, in my memory. 

—Anna Akhmatova, 1916 
translated by Eugene Kayden 

(Reprinted by permission of the Colorado Quarterly) 


Eugene M. Kayden, H'69, professor 
emeritus of economics and widely 
published translator of Russian 
poetry, died October 4 in Sewanee 
at the age of 91. 

He had published three books 
of translations of PasternaVs poems, 
a volume each of Lermontov and 
Tyutchev, and translated Pushkin's 
Eugene Oneginand Little Tragedies. 
All were hailed by top scholars of 
Russian literature in such terms as 
"significant literary event," "a per- 
formance which deserves nothing 
but praise and gratitude," "superb," 
"translation at its best." Since 1971 
the Colorado Quarterly has been 
publishing 30 to 50 pages of his 
translations of various Russian poets 
in every issue. Time magazine in 
1959 chose his volume of Paster- 
nak's Poems as the "Year's Best in 
Poetry," and Pasternak himself 
praised Kayden's rendition of his 

While Mr. Kayden was nego- 
tiating with the University of 
Michigan Press for publication of 
the Pasternak book, the director of 
the press, Edwin Watkins, wrote, 
"When Mr. Kayden arrived in Ann 
Arbor, there was a congress of 
'gerontologists' devoted to planning 
for the aged. It was a rather ironic 
comment on their assembly that 
Mr. Kayden, a 72-year-old man, 
approached us with a project to 
publish no less than twenty volumes 
(at a minimum) of translations 
from the Russian by his hand— a 
project that will take at least five 
years, and may go on indefinitely." 

Eugene M. Kayden was born 
in Russia and came to the United 
States at the age of 17, receiving 
his citizenship a few years later. He 
began translating Russian poetry in 
1911 in his hours of leisure from 

his teaching and research in econo- 
mics. He came to Sewanee in 1924 
as founder of the economics de- 
partment, after having received 
degrees from the University of 
Colorado and Harvard and studied 
further at Princeton and Columbia. 
He retired from teaching in 1955 
to give his full time to his trans- 

In addition to many published 
articles and monographs in the field 
of economics, Mr. Kayden prepared 
translations, as well as articles and 
essays on Russian literature, for 
The Nation, the Russian Review, 
the New Republic, the Sewanee 
Review (for which he was associate 
editor from 1925 to 1927), the 
American Slavic Review, Christian 
Century, Colorado Quarterly, and 
The New Statesman of London, 
among other publications. Hallmark 
Cards, which holds the greeting 
card rights to Kayden's translations 
of Pasternak, has also used Kayden 
translations of Lermontov and 
Pleshcheyev poems. The vast Kay- 
den output also includes transla- 
tions from Andreyev, Essenin, and 
Garshin. Some of his translations 
were premiered at Sewanee last 
year during a reading at the 
Bishop's Common, where he intro- 
duced some contemporary Russian 
poets for the first time in English. 

Professor Kayden in 1972 was 
awarded the honorary degree of 
Doctor of Humane Letters by the 
University of Colorado, its first 
such degree given in absentia. The 
University of the South awarded 
him its Doctor of Letters degree 
in 1969. 

Robert M. Ayres, Jr., acting 
vice-chancellor, is a former student 
and long-time friend of Mr. Kayden. 

"He was a man of great sensi- 
tivity, compassionate concerning 
his fellow man," said Mr. Ayres. 
"He was a strong believer in Chris- 
tian brotherhood among all nations, 
and spent the latter years of his life 
helping to bring this about through 
his translations of Russian poetry. 
He was always a seeker of truth 
and was a person who helped to 
open the eyes of all who knew him 
toward the injustices that existed 
in our world." 

Gifts to the University in 
memory of Mr. Kayden will go into 

the Eugene M. Kayden Memorial 
Library Fund, the proceeds of 
which will be used by duPont 
Library to purchase books in the 
fields of Russian and economics. 
The library bought most of Mr. 
Kayden's library several years ago, 
and the rest of his books will go 
to duPont under his will. They are 
heavily annotated, being mostly 
volumes of authors he was in the 
process of translating, and will form 
the nucleus of a special research

The Sewanee News is looking for 
letters from its readers. So if you 
have comments, even indirectly 
related to the University, keep 
them reasonably short, and we'll 
publish them. Communication, at 
its best, is a two-way street. 

The current Sewanee News (Sep- 
tember 1977) is certainly full of 
information; however, mine may 
not be the only response to the 
geology write-up. 

Geology was taught as early as 
1874 and until about 1918. 

William Boone Nauts entered 
the University in 1877 and has left 

us his notes on the geology lectures 
of Dr. John B. Elliott. The library 
has a geology text book used by 
students J. W. Percy in 1881 and 
Hugh Cunningham in 1883 as well 
as early geology exams.

I am hoping that "Will Hogwild," 
my recent correspondent, will' 
identify himself, because his letter 
was especially appreciated and 
helpful to my project, and I want 
to respond directly to him.

Lancaster Heads Million Dollar Program 

"/ would not like my retirement to be marked by a failure." 

(Continued from page 1) 

Million Dollar Program. The pro- 
gram has been a great success under 
Mr. Whipple (vice-president for 
development), but especially at 
this time, with an acting vice- 
chancellor, we need to assure the 
future of Sewanee and the viability 
of its institutions. We must meet 
our goal of $1,150,000. 

"My role is to rally Sewanee 
alumni everywhere whom I know 
and Sewanee friends everywhere 
whom I do not know to assist the 
University. Our friends, wherever 
they may be, should know they 
have the opportunity to participate 
in the great work of liberal edu- 

"I will be teaching two classes, 
but have arranged my schedule so 
that I will be free the latter part 
of the week to travel. 

"We have a splendid leader in 
Robert M. Ayres, who for two 
years has sacrificed his business 
to work for the University. I hope 
his example is contagious. 

"Incidentally, I am going to 
retire at the end of this academic 
year, and I would not like my re- 
tirement to be marred by a failure." 

Dr. Lancaster was born and 
reared in Floyd, Virginia, a little 
town near Roanoke in the Blue 
Ridge Valley. After his graduation 
from Hampden-Sydney in 1929, he 

taught for two years at Gulfcoast 
Military Academy in Gulfport, 

He came to head the junior de- 
partment at Sewanee Military Acad- 
emy in 1931. He once referred to it 
as a "department without students 
in a school suffering from the rav- 
ages of a great depression." 

During this initial six-year stay 
in Sewanee, he studied law at 
Andrew Jackson University, driving 
the 90 miles to Nashville three 
nights a week. In 1934 he also re- 
ceived a master's degree from the 
University of the South. Then in 
1938, he passed the Virginia Bar 
examination, leaving Sewanee to 
practice law for the next few years 
in Floyd and Pulaski, Virginia. 

When he returned to the Acad- 
emy in 1941, he became comman- 
dant of cadets, but with World War 
II under way, he soon entered the 
Navy and for almost the next four 
years was an air combat intelligence 
officer. After the war, he returned 
to the Academy. 

Dr. Lancaster began teaching in 
the political science department of 
the College in 1949. He received his 
doctoral degree from the University 
of Michigan in 1952, and the 
following year was named dean, a 
position he held for four years. He 

Robert S. (Red) Lancaster 

has twice been a Fulbright lecturer— 
at the College of Arts and Sciences 
in Bagdad, Iraq, and at the National 
University in Seoul, Korea. 

Among the many positions he 
has held at Sewanee, Dr. Lancaster 
also was acting director of develop- 
ment from 1965 to 1967. 

He has been listed in Who's 
Who in America continuously since 
1964. He also is a member of the 
Academic Advisory Board of the 
U.S. Naval Academy. 

He and his wife, the former 
Ernestine Desporte, have two 
grown daughters. 

Academy Alumni Begin Drive 

Operation; Task Force for increased 
Academy alumni giving was 
approved October 8 by the Sewa- 
nee Academy Alumni Association 
after enthusiastic endorsement by 
the Alumni Board of Governors. 

Operation: Task Force is the 
volunteer effort to provide unre- 
stricted gifts for application to the 
Academy's budget. The goal is an 
increase of 3 per cent in the 
number of alumni gifts each year 
for the next five years. 

John Bratton, Sewanee alumni 
director, is seeking volunteers 
willing to serve as class agents or 

Vice-Chancellor Robert M. 
Ayres spearheaded the fund-raising 
effort with addresses to the Alumni 

Association and a joint meeting 
of the alumni and parents. 

He said $150,000 must be 
raised to offset the difference be- 
tween expenses and budget 
allocations this year. Contributions 
by Academy alumni and friends 
may be applied directly to the 
Academy budget. The vice-chan- 
cellor said he would kick off the 
effort by contributing $5,000 from 
his own salary. 

By the end of the day, the Rev. 
D. Roderick Welles, Academy head- 
master, had announced a $1,000 
gift, a $5,000 pledge, and gifts in 
kind or services totaling $15,000. 

The alumni also were urged to 
help with recruiting. Full enroll- 
ment, they were told, would be 
tantamount to meeting the budget.
