FOREWORD 



What is the YAMACRAW? 

The YAMACRAW is a small book about a small college, 
put together by a few amateurs who, short on 
experience and funds and help, dared to hope 
they could have a yearbook anyhow. They know 
the YAMACRAW 's faults; they've known them so 
long and so well that they've almost come to 
like them. They got the book out. 

What is the YAMACRAW 's Theme? 

The Theme of the YAMACRAW is OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY, 
where a man equipped with couraere and vision 
and a battered old car dared to hope to make 
of a school that "..wasn't anemic; it was as 
dead as a catfish in a pine tree" a Univer- 
sity that could set the pace for a region. 

To that man the YAMACRAW is dedicated. 




DEDICATION: TO THE MAN WITH THE PLAN 

To Dr. Philip Weltner, who after a life of service 
has scored yet another victory in his salvation of 
Oglethorpe University from oblivion and his origi- 
nation of the Oglethorpe Plan, this first post-war 
YAA'ACRAW is respectfully and gratefully dedicated. 



The Oglethorpe Plan of education for making a life 
as well as for making a living Involves a course 
of studies "which makes sense from first to last", 
those subjects devoted to living in the community 
and to human understeinding being required, with 
the student selecting under guidemce the group of 
studies which will prepare him to make a living. 
How the six Divisions of study at Oglethorpe fit 
into the Oglethorpe Plan is explained briefly in 
the appropriate faculty pages of the Yamacraw.

BLUE KEY 



Oglethorpe's chapter of Blue Key was Installed in 1926. After 
a period of wartime inactivity. Blue Key was revived in May, 
1947 when Boar's Head voted to join the national organization. 
Selection for membership requires a high scholastic average, 
participation in campus activities, and qualities of leader- 
ship. The group sponsors the annual Boar's Head Ceremony and 
renders various services to the campus and the student body as 
a whole.

THE STOW PFTRFL 



The fall of 1947 found The Stormy Petrel wearing a very 
bold face, long and narrow In size, and dressed in news 
print, but when spring came around The Stormy Petrel de- 
cided to surprise everyone and have a spring coming-out 
party. The slick paper, new pictures and cuts, the small 
friendly size, and a large staff of assistants made the 
change-over a success. 

At the start of the school year 1947-4P Jack Brooks was 
Editor, Ken Steele Assistant Rditor, George Scott and 
Dick Stoller News Editors, Wally Crider Sports Editor, 
Ann Mason Feature Editor, Shirley Sanders Business Man- 
ager, Bill Rhodes and Gordon Bynum Advertising Managers, 
Joel Chandler Make-up Editor, Jewel Fisher, Ann Adams, 
Kitty Henson, Alice Callaway, Edgar Bodiford, Joe Martin 
Reporters, and Don West Faculty Advisor. When the horses 
were changed in midstream in the spring. Bill Rhodes be- 
came Editor, with Jay Hall Feature Editor, Wally Crider 
Sports Editor, Martha Mayson Art Editor, Rimer Etling 
Business Manager. Staff members are: Clare Tsanhour, Bob 
Snow, Alice Callaway, Jewel Fisher, Diane Himmer, Alice 
Gore, Shirley Sanders, Dick Stoller, Dick Griffiths, Boh 
Owens, Jack Fisher, and George Scott. Dr. J. J. Brooks 
is now Faculty Advisor. 

Unquestionably The Stormy Petrel is well-named. Tt has 
ridden through many storms in the past two years and the 
majority have been financial. There were occasions when 
the storm clouds were very dark and things looked hope- 
less, but The Stormy Petrel, the only bird that can fly 
in the face of a storm, made a successful flight, ending 
the school year in the black. The Stormy Petrel receives 
its support mainly from advertisements, but the Univer- 
sity, alumni, and other friends give funds from time to 
time.

BASKETBALL 1947-48 

(Reprint below courtesy of the Stormy Petrel. It would 
be impossible to add anything to it. — Ed.) 



The Petrels played a thirty fraiiie 
schedule with two entries in local 
tounianieiits. Most of the games were 
played in a fast league and many 
games were played with the sick and 
crippled huddled disconsolately on the 
bench. Few road trips were made 
with a full team, many of them having 
• only one or no substitute for the first 
five. Yet the Petrels captured I'l 
wins to 19 losses and ran up the score 
of 1,617 to opponent's 1,777. 

But only those who witnessed the 
games can appreciate the etfort put 
forth by the team, which on several 
occasions was required (for lack of 
substitutes) to play the full game 
without rest. Although some of the 
.scores .show that the Birds were out- 
played, they were always fighting 
and gave a good account of them- 
selves. 

The most outstanding showings of 
the Petrels quintet were those with 
■Ft. Benning and the University of 
C!hattanooga. Both games were won 
in the home gym by a one point marg- 



in and both return games were lost 
by a slim margin. 

It would be hard to select any out- 
standing performers for the Petrels, 
except for high scoring honors. A. Z. 
Johnson led his team in this aspect 
with Jim Ilinson running a close sec- 
ond. Hinson, is the only Junior on 
the team. The other members of the 
team have two remaining years for the 
Black and Gold.

As the Yamacraw goes to press the 1948 baseball squad has won its 
first four games by lop-sided scores: two with Piedmont, one each 
with Fort MacPherson and North Georgia. Don Brennan 's ability as 
coach appears to be speaking for itself in the box scores, and In 
Ronnie Sinkway the yawning gap left in the pitching staff by Bob- 
by DeVaney's departure for the Detroit Tigers seems to be filled. 
Prospects are bright for one of the best seasons yet.
