We of the Nineteen Sixty-eight Yamacraw dedicate
this yearbook to Mrs. Lucile Q. Agnew, assistant profes-
sor of English. We find it difficult to contain the Mrs.
Agnew we know in the dimension of paper. She is too
multidimensional for this. The student body of Oglethorpe
College know her for her excellence in teaching, for the
life and joy she contributes to the class material, and for
her devotion to teaching and to the Oglethorpe Ideal.
Mrs. Agnew is more than we are able to convey by
words. She is dynamic, motivating, and we of Oglethorpe
shall remember her for all that she has given her students
and the college.
Thank you Mrs. Agnew, for all the devotion, gentle-
ness, and knowledge, and love you have given us. You
have made us better individuals by your contact with us.
You have earned our respect and our love. There is no
other possible way for us to repay you except to try to
follow your example.
Dr. Paul Kenneth Vonk
This year a new administration has taken the reins of
Oglethorpe College's future. Under the dynamic and
forceful leadership of Dr. Paul Vonk, the Oglethorpe
Ideal has turned the corner into a new era. Based on his
principle of "Continuing Opportunity", the gates of
Oglethorpe have been thrown open to a new influx of
students from many parts of the country. Though Dr.
Vonk believes students deserve a second chance, he runs
a tight ship. While other campuses are littered with
shoddily dressed students. Dr. Vonk dealt forcefully with
the dress problem and therefore it was never a serious
threat. With the coffers of Oglethorpe filling and finan-
cial annihilation no longer staring Oglethorpe in the
face, plans for an even larger college are on the boards.
With the new student union anticipated for the near fu-
ture, Oglethorpe is indeed passed into a new era.

Guest speakers are a vital part of the total value that
students get from a college educational experience. It
exposes the student to a variety of ideas, concepts, and
facts that come alive by being given by persons who have
an intimate, living knowledge of their subject.
Dr Albert Ellis
Lord and Lady Formal
The highpoint of the Lord and Lady Oglethorpe formal
was the crowning of this year's winners, Miss Bonnie
Roberts and Mr. John Sims. The student body votes to
select members of the court and Lord and Lady. Lord
and Lady Oglethorpe court members were Bonnie Lynn
Tash, Janice Lymburner, Marcia Strange, Dee Denton,
Barbara Beggs, Gil Watson, Harry Echols, Doug Alex-
ander, Robert Burnette, and Roger Littell.

This year the Spring Varieties took a radical turn from
past shows. Under the direction of Jim Milford, this
year's Spring Varieties were "unusual". The «how was
divided into two parts. The first part was a conventional
talent show. The second part, however, was styled after
the Rowan and Martin Laugh-in television show. Crowd
reaction to the skits was mixed and varied.
Best Dressed Co-ed Contest is sponsored by Glamour
and by the Stormy Petrel. The winner of the Oglethorpe
Contest goes on to represent the college on the inter-
collegiate scale. This year the winner is Miss Cindy Knox.
Cindi, who is from Cumberland, Maryland, has been
quite active in school functions. She has been elected
to be Student Government Secretary next year. This
friendly and pert miss was runner-up for Homecoming
Queen. It is evident that the judges could not have
picked a more stylish or more fitting person to wear the
title of Miss Best Dressed Co-ed.
This year the Stormy Petrel initiated a new beauty
contest on the Oglethorpe Campus. The Stormy Petrel
Girl of the Year was selected by a combination popular
vote of the student body and by personal selection by the
editorial staff of the Stormy Petrel. Candidates were
previous Stormy Petrel Girls of the Week. Finalists were
chosen by vote of the student body. The final selection
for the winner was done by the editorial staff of the paper.
This year the winner was Miss Jennifer Norman. The
beautiful Brownsville, Pennsylvania native has lived in
the sunny state of Florida, at Daytona.
This year, for the first time in many years, fraternities
have returned to the Oglethorpe College campus. These
fraternities are Sigma Alpha Mu, Sigma Alpha Epsilon,
Chaket Club of Chi Phi, Beta Nu, Pi Kappa Phi, and Tau
Kappa Epsilion. The Greeks celebrated the rites of the
spring by holding their first annual Greek Week. The
competition included such events as a skate board
slalom race, an egg toting race, tug-of-war, marathon
relay races, and a Greek Sing. This sing was held at night
in the auditorium, as was the Greek God and Goddess
Contest. Georgia Johnson was selected as Goddess.

This year's Spring Formal immediately followed the senior banquet. There was
music to suit all tastes with the entertainment provided by the Jimmy Fuller Or-
chestra and the dynamic Showmen.
Bonnie, the head table just died of ptomaine'"
The Senior Banquet is given every year by the Senior
Class to honor the graduating seniors. The traditional toast
was given by Dean Garrett. The after dinner speech was
presented by Mr. Bob Loftin, a member of the faculty.
Mr. and Mrs. Littell enjoy the banquet.
To be a Senior is to describe that which no mortal
might understand no, not even an underclassman could
define its quality. Being a Senior is waking up one morn-
ing and discovering that your draft deferment has only
nine months to go before it expires. It's that awe-
somely sad realization that the world is going to expect
something of you. If there was a word that could sum-
marize all the feelings and emotions that are concentrated
into that year, the word would be realization.
The Senior year begins with all the pomp and circum-
stance that is its hallmark. The Senior is capped and pro-
perly girded for the task that lies ahead. One gets the
impression that the world awaits with something of a
smirk on its face, as though it still believes the walls of
colleges are covered with ivy, rather than the sweat, strain
and heartache that have actually surrounded us for these
four years. Speakers are forever painting us pictures and
though the hues might vary, the basic design is still the
same. It's high time we got off our cans and did something
productive. Finding out about yourself has no value in the
outside world. If it can't sell, it's no good. Being a Senior
is a time of realization.
With Convocation comes the realization that you have
only sixteen weeks left to accomplish all the glossy goals
that had been set before you when they had first started
painting pictures for you back in your freshman year.
Suddenly you start to question your whole purpose in be-
ing in college. You realize that if you had a purpose, it
got lost somewhere among the IBM cards and the noti-
fications of overdue fees. If you get entangled in Senior
Drj.ft, it doesn't matter, because Graduation is only four
weeks away and if you don't get married. Uncle Sam will
take care of you.
Suddenly its Graduation and you stand on the peak of
ambition and if it's a little tarnished by attainment, that's
all part of the realization. If, when you walk across the
Quad for the last time, and if you are a bit of a senti-
mentalist, you'll realize yourself. That's what being a
Senior in 1968 is all about.
At last the time that every person in college looks
forward to. Yet there is a certain amount of mixed feel-
ings. For most it is truely a commencement, a beginning
of a new and exciting life. But also it is a time to re-
member and daydream about all the people you have
met, about the ones who did not make it to stand here
with you. It is a time to think about how much the
people around you have changed, and indeed, how much
you have changed. But mostly it's a time of personal
pride and satisfaction.
The long, hot waiting is the hardest

Who's Who in American
Colleges and Universities
One of the highest honors available to an Oglethorpe student is to be elected to the Who's
Who in American Colleges and Universities. Those selected are voted on by the members
of the faculty from lists of deserving students made up by the Sophomore and Junior
Classes. Who's Who assigns a certain number of openings and it is this number that limits
the number of students elected from the student body. This year there were sixteen students
selected. These were Doug Alexander, Bill Arey, Valera Bagwell, Bob Burnette, Frank Clark,
Dee Denton, Harry Echols, John McCook, Roger Littell, Judy Ponturo, John Sims, Kathy
Starcher, Bonnie Lynn Tash, and Gill Watson. These awards are made on the basis of ac-
complishment and merit.

The Yamacraw Awards are given each year to those
students that the editorial staff of the Yamacraw
Yearbook feels best exemplifies the personification of the
Oglethorpe Idea. Criterian for this award are high stand-
ards in the social, academic, and leadership. The winners
this year were Karen Steinhaus, John Wickham, Bonnie
Roberts, Mike Dahl, Joe Menez, Leland Sasnett, Barbara

Abbott Award, which is given to those students who have
shown outstanding achievement in social, leadership and
academic areas. This award, not necessarily given every
year, requires that to be eligible the student must have
been a student of Oglethorpe College for at least two con-
secutive years. Also the student (s) must have contributed
to the publication of the Yamacraw in a non-staff posi-
tion. This year's winners are Gil Watson and John
George G. Watson
The James Oglethorpe Cups are given each year at
graduation time, to that young lady and to that young man
in the Senior Class, who, in the judgement of the faculty,
have come closest to achieving those ideals of scholar-
ship, leadership, and service for which an Oglethorpe
education stands. The faculty votes by ballot prepared
with all Senior names, listed by males and females. These
are returned to the Registrar's office to be tallied. The
recipients this year were Larry Perlman and Bonnie Lynn
Bonnie Lynn Tash
The Golden Apple Award is given by the Beta Nu
Fraternity to the outstanding professor as judged by the
student body. A list of all the professors were prepared

Leo Bilancio was the winner of the award this year. Pro-
fessor Bilancio is an associate professor of History. He is
also the sponsor for the Yamacraw.

young man in the graduating Senior Class who, over the

annually by the Oglethorpe Women's Club in memory of
Sally Hull Weltner, wife of Dr. Philip Weltner, former
president of Oglethorpe College. It is awarded to that
young woman in the graduating class who, during the last
two or three years (which ever is higher), has attained the
highest scholastic average.
This year there was a slight variance from the usual as
there was given two Sail Hull Weltner Awards for
Scholarship. The recipients were Fredrica Anderson and
Miss Marjorie McClaran. The Sally Hull Weltner
Award(s) are not announced until Graduation day. This
year the award was presented by Robert Foreman, head of
the Board of Trustees.
Robert J. Fusil
Donald C. Agnew

ernment and is chosen by them, to honor that person who,
in their opinion, has given distinquished service to the
Oglethorpe Community. The winner this year is Elgin F.
MacConnell. "Mr. Mac", as he is known to every one of
his students, is Education Professor. He also serves as
Dean of Men and has served in that capacity for sev-
eral years. Mr. MacConnell, whose father and mother are
very much apart of the tradition of Oglethorpe College,
received the Yamacraw Dedication last year. It is with
much warmth that the staff and editors of the Yama-
craw extend their congratulations and a hope that their
will be many morejustly deserved honors.
The Brown Award is given to the person who, in the
opinion of the Oglethorpe Players has contributed the
most to the efforts of the Players. Dr. Fusillo is the recip-
ient of this year's award. Dr. Robert J. Fussillo or "Will"
as he is sometimes called, is a graduate of the Shakespeare
Institute at Stratford-on-Avon in England. He is quite a
talented man as he demonstrated by giving his own one
man show this spring. He has worked as a professional
folksinger and does a tremendous rendition of Dylan
Thomas "A Child's Christmas in Wales.
Elgin F. MacConnel

the four class presidents compose the Student Council.
This governing organization is designed to serve as the
unifying and coordinating body for all student activities
As our student body has grown larger over the past
few years, each successive Student Government has found
the job of providing activities for these students more
difficult. This year's Student Government has lived up
to the challenge and provided activities for all students'

The Honor Council, composed of the Honor Commit-
tee and the Honor Court, works under the Honor Code
as a body of the Student Government. The Honor Com-
mittee reviews suspected violations of the Honor Code
presented to the Council and decides which of the cases has
sufficient factual basis to warrant a trial by the Court.
The Honor Committee also considers amendments to
the Honor Code, and submits the proposals it approves to
the students and faculty for radifkation.
The Honor Court hears all cases of alleged violations
of the Honor Code and has the authority to recommend
punishment for those found guilty, subject always to the
approval of the Dean of the College.
The Court is composed of two elected members from
each class, while the Committee is composed of one
elected member from each class. Both bodies have one
non-voting chairman appointed by the previous chairman
subject to the approval of the Student Government, and
an advisor chosen from the faculty.

Board of Treasurers
All student activities are paid for out of an activity
fee collected at the beginning of each trimester and
turned over to the Student Government for distribution
to the various chartered organizations. The treasurer of
each of these organizations is responsible for the money
allocated for its use. The Board of Treasurers was or-
ganized to insure close coordination with the Student
Government, and to help the treasurers keep proper and

Fraternity Life Returns
For the first time in about twenty years the Yamacraw
has been able to devote several pages to Social Frater-
nities. These pages cover the newly formed and re-estab-
lished fraternities which have appeared this year. Fra-
ternities and sororities were once an integral part of the
College community and it looks as though they will be
again. The next couple years will be difficult until our
new fraternities are firmly established, but many look
strong and capable. Plans are being made now to es-
tablish at least one sorority on campus next year.
The fraternities already appear to be revitalizing
many aspects of student life by providing new fraternity
oriented social functions, cohesiveness, order, competi-
tion, and a new source of leadership training. The Yam-
acraw sincerely wishes these new fraternities the best of

Beta Nu is a social fraternity organized in the Fall of
1967 around the tradition and ideals of Robert E. Lee.
These men have already established a fine tradition of
leadership, service, and the true feeling of brotherhood in
the College community. They provide an extremely well
rounded social program for their men who also partici-
pate actively in all aspects of college sponsored activities.
These men are without a doubt some of the finest men
on this campus.

Chi Phi, like Beta Nu, is one of the fraternities once

days on the old campus at Millegeville. Now, in 1968, as
the fraternal spirit comes alive again Chi Phi has rein-
stated this local group as an active colony under the name
Chakett Club. The Colony operates under a constitu-
tion which is dedicated to the promotion of fellowship,
leadership, scholarship, and a sense of responsibility
among their brotherhood, the college, and the community.

the study and interest of psychology on the Oglethorpe
campus. Headed up by its president, Sandy Sasnett and
its Faculty Advisor, W. Greg Lanier, the club accom-

People-to-People is based on the principle that world
peace can best be achieved by personal understanding
among people of the world. An example of People-to-
People's sincerity in working toward their goal is the close
alliance between them and the International Club for
Oglethorpe's foreign students. Also as part of their efforts
over the past year, People-to-People have sponsored many
films and guest speakers on foreign topics.
Baptist Student Union
As our College Community began to grow several years
ago a greater percentage of our student body began to
live on the campus away from their home congregations
and thus desired local religious affiliation. As a result of
this need several church affiliated student groups have re-
newed their charters with the Student Government. The
Baptist Student Union was the first to do this and has
been by far the most active.

The editors and staff have tried to capture every aspect
of campus life in pictures and words as a living record
of our students' lives during the past year. This work is
probably one of the most rewarding parts of college, for
after all memories lapse, the yearbook remains as a last-

20 — 5 Season Record
Earns Tournament Bid
The 1967-68 Stormy Petrel cagers fashioned an excit-
ing 20 — 5 regular season mark and captured enough
attention from this record to be invited to the NCAA
tournament in March.
Pivotman Mike Dahl and guard Doug Alexander,
who at the end of the season was named Honorable Men-
tion Little All-America, provided the offensive punch
all season for Coach Carter's Birds. Both set new records,
and Alexander broke Assistant Coach Tom Norwood's
record for most total points and Dahl a season mark for
Seniors Alexander, Jerry Sams and Roger Littell pro-
vided the leadership for this exciting team that posted
memorable victories over Valdosta State, Middle Ten-
nessee State, Catholic, Brown and South Carolina State.
Sophomores Ken Cannon and Ernie Crain were
pleasant surprises, filling in when needed and providing
their worth to the Petrel plans of the future. Juniors
Earl Blair, Jim Hoggarth, Mike Dahl, Doug Cole and
Jerry Lee continued to run the wheel relentlessly, and
will be next season's leaders.
Freshman Willie Sheats red-shirted this year, could be
the best ever to put on the Petrel gold and black by the
time his career is over.

Coach Greenleaf enjoys the action
The Petrel Soccer team of 1967 was said to
have been the best ever at Oglethorpe, according to Coach
Benton Greenleaf. One reason was due to the presence of
players from the North with previous experience in the
game of soccer, which is still a fledgling sport in the South.
Newcomers such as Steve Orton, Tim Blake, Jim Taylor,
Rolf Erichs, and Fred York lent their know-how to the
efforts of veterans Dan Larter, Marty Marcus, John Hill,
Rusty Jones, and Don Womack in the '67 campaign.
The schedule was a rough one, with such strong teams

Coach Tom Norwood's Petrel Nine complied a 20 — 5
mark this season, just narrowly missing a tournament bid.
This Oglethorpe club was, perhaps, the best ever, as it
compiled an overall batting mark of over .300. Charlie
Owens was the top pitcher, breezing to a 9 — 2 won-loss
record. Gary Collier had an astounding 1.26 earned run
average, to rank with the finest anywhere.
The hitters never stopped hitting. Butch Casey and John
Turner were near the .400 mark in hitting and Casey
slammed seven homers to lead in the power department.
The club loses four fine seniors in Larry Freeman, Howell
Gower, Randy Gurley and Charlie Owens, but there is
plenty of talent back next year.

The Oglethorpe tennis team played its toughest sched-
ule in history, and came out with a respectable 11 — 8
won-lost mark. Seven of those eight losses were to major
colleges such as Florida, South Carolina, Georgia, and
Florida State. Coach Carter's netters lost only to one
college division team, a strong Rollins College club.
Robby Smith and Joe Dennis led the team, playing the
number one and two slots, respectively. Smith was per-
haps the finest player in Georgia, as he whipped Georgia
and Georgia Tech's number one players during the sea-
son. Smith and Dennis will represent us in the National
With Smith as the only loss for next year, we should
have another great tennis year.

Traditionally in the Editor's Epitaph an editor re-
counts all the great times he had in putting out the book
and expresses his thanks to all who have helped in putting
the annual together. But, since this is not a typical an-
nual as the reader might have guessed by now, I will not
recount all my wonderful experiences, since it is not
worth mentioning. I would like to thank a number of
people, most of whom unfortunately are not on the staff
of the Yamacraw. Jimmy Fitts, Barry Shieldneck, Harry
Echols, Sandy Scarborgh and many others.
I would like to shoot one long raspberry at Eric Bray
and his Photography Committee, without whose coop-
eration the 1968 Yamacraw could have been a truely out-
All seriousness aside, I look back on my two months
as Editor-in-Chief as the most educational part of my
college experience. The taking up of responsibility is one
of the most gratifying things a human can do. I heartily
recommend it to everyone, particularly the S.G.A.
While sitting here under the final debris of the 1968
Yamacraw, I am filled with that feeling which comes so
often to niave do-gooders, disgust. In reviewing what
wasn't actually a year (the former editor resigned the
last of March) as co-editor-in-chief, it was a singularly
frustrating experience. The people who had the authority
to help us to put out this book (which was not even be-
gun until April) were the ones who impeded the efforts.
In remembering this, I would sincerely like to wish the
worst to certain members of the 1967-1968 S.G.A. to ev-
eryone who never worked but constantly asked "When is
the yearbook coming out?", to various members of the
Stormy Petrel for a stupendous job in checking efforts to
obtain photographs, and most especially to Eric Bray for
all the excuses he presented in lieu of photographs.
There are some people I would like particularly to
thank for various contributions from hard work to much
needed moral support. They are Barry Shildneck, David
Stachkunas, Sandy Scarborough, Harry Echols, Joe
Menez, and Ginger Kurtz. Particularly I wish to thank
Jimmy Fitts, without whom this book would have been
more copy than photography.
The bulk of credit for this book goes to Sandy Sasnett.
Without his meritorious, but monomaniacal devotion to
the task of its completion, there would have been no
Yamacraw at all.
New year's Yamacraw becomes the heartache and frus-
tration of Jimmy Fitts. I wish him much luck, a good
public relations man, and a speedy recovery.
