Lois Harkins, Editor Edwin Jackson, Business Manager CATAWBA COlLFGt Salisbury, North Foreword Throughout our college days we enter many DOORWAYS. Each has a significance in our lives. The 1956 Sayakini has followed this theme in three areas in which each of us have been partici- pants. These three DOORWAYS are; to Person- alities, to Activities, and to Athletics. It is the hope of the Sayakini Staff that through this book we will become more aware of these DOORWAYS and their value to us.

And yet I am fully aware of the fact that should any of that group remain with us after t he normal time for their graduation, my regret would be far greater. Therefore, not- withstanding your departure, I rejoice with you over your accomplishment. I am grateful to each of you for your part in having made the Catawba College fellowship, during your years here, the vital influence that it has been in the rich and wholesome development of each of us who has been privileged to have been a part of it. And for each of you who will now soon face new experiences and new opportunities and new problems, I can only hope and pray that the life which you have lived here at college will serve as a steadying influence and as " a symbol of (the true) life and right " that our " Alma Mater " comprehends. Please know that as you leave this campus, you are not severing your relationship with this school or with the many friends which you have made here. You are rather expanding your friendships by becoming members of that greater college fellowship known as " The Catawba College Alumni " -- a fellowship that extends not only throughout this nation but that spans the entire globe. And so I say to you now not only " Bon Voyage " but " Welcome " , as well. " Welcome, Alumni! " There is just one further thought that I should like to leave with you, and it is this. On your diploma which represents documentary evidence that you have completed the work incidental to the conferring of a bachelor ' s degree, you will note these words: " Be it known that (name of student) has fulfilled the requirements of this institution with honorable standing in scholarship and character " . There is nothing singular about that certification with the exception of the last two words. And whether you know it or not, these are extraordinary! Not many institutions include " honorable standing in character " as a requirement for graduation, and, likewise, not many certify it on the diplomas which they award. Catawba College, however, has done this for many years because it believes that all knowledge and all learning are futile unless they be accompanied by those qualities of man- hood and of womanhood that reflect sincerity, integrity, service to one ' s fellows, and faith in God. An executive of one of our nation ' s largest industries recently spoke to a college graduating class and had this to say in concluding his address, and I quote it here because it expresses so well my own deepest conviction: " I hope that you will not concentrate exclusively on your hands and your head, important as they are; but rather that you will remember also the supreme dimensions of your soul. You will find that it has inexhaustible resources for noble and exalted living which will deepen and round out this high adventure you are about to undertake. It will lead you to the only real security man has ever found -- spiritual security. It will help you to hold fast to those ideals and principles which go to make up a rich life. You have a long head start toward a life of service and accomplishment. Live it well ! " Most sincerely, CLASS OF 1956 Sealed: Sherrill, Duncan. Standing: Holbrook. Washam.

The Williamson Rating System of Houston. Texas. National Football Rating firm, ranked the Indians 159th in 556 colleges and universities in the nation. No other college the size of Catawba, except the undefeated Lenoir Rhyne Bears, in the Southeast ranked close to the Indians. In playing the roughest schedule of any team in the North State Conference, the Indians ran up a total of 142 points in securing a six wins and four losses record. The Tribe stopped some of the finest small college elevens in the two Carolinas, using a group of green recruits rounded into a working machine, spearheaded by some of the finest ball players in the Conference. Co-Captains Swanncr and Dick Smith ce vrsR CeFf HALF8ACK GUARD Football Honors . . . 1955 Catawba ' s outstanding end, Dick Snyder, who hails from Burlington. N. C. holds the unique distinction among Catawba play- ers of being nominated for Little All- American Honors. The Indians, ranking above the Little Ail-American teams, were classified among the Mid-Bracket All-Ameri- can teams this year. Among this group Dick was named to a spot on the honorable men- tion roster. On the basis of " his fine defensive plav and pass catching " Dick was placed on the All-State team and also on the All-North- State Conference first team. Both he and Gary Sherrill received votes for the most valuable player of the North-State Confer- ence. Always alert and Aggressive, Dick con- tributed much to Catawba ' s success during the past few years and particularly during the ' 5 5 football campaign. Henry " Dick " Patry, center from Sha- mokin. Penna.. was the only freshman in the Conference to be named to the All- Conference team. In high school he was All- Conference for three years and Most Valu- able Player his senior year. He played two years of service ball at Camp Polk, La., and Fort Riley, Kansas. He has the potential at becoming one of the greatest lineman ever produced by Catawba and should be a main- stay for the next three years. Les S wanner. a senior from Albemarle, N. C. led the Indians, as co-captain, to their most successful season in recent years. Les was considered " Catawba ' s workhorse " as he sparked the team on many occasions with his fine play and determination to win. De- spite a severe injury, ne returned to the line- up to complete the season and his football career at Catawba. Catawba is fortunate to have such an outstanding personality as our co-captain, and no one deserved the he nor of All-Conference more than he. Dick Cassels, a junior, came to Catawba this year with a very impressive football record behind him. In high school at Clif- ton, N. J., Dick was All-Conference and All-State; at Muhlenburg College he was All-Conference; in the Marines he was se- lected to the All-Marine, All-Navy, and All-Service team, and was the Most Valu- able Player at Parris Island in 1954. As one of the finest lineman to come to Catawba in the past few years, Dick was chosen All- Conference and received Honorable Mention on the All-State team. Ralph " Buzzy ' ' Yarborough, a senior guard from Kannapolis, N. C, was the big man in the center of the Catawba line all season. " Buzzy " , a consistent ball player, was alternate captain this year and really deserves the honor for a job well done. Fullback Dick Smith, Salisbury, N. C, tackle Dick Garland, Utica, N. Y., and end Fred Sisley, Charleroi, Penna., received hon- orable mention on the All-Conference team this year. Although hindered by injuries, these boys played a good brand of football during the campaign and gained recognition as outstanding players.

The following week, Coach Biggers ironed out a lot of mistakes and weaknesses and took a fired-up eleven to do battle with the Newberry Indians and brought home a 12-6 victory despite being two-touchdown underdogs. The Indians continued their winning steak by blasting Eastern Carolina 13-6, before being stopped by Western Carolina, 20-6, a game which West forfeited to Catawba because of the use of an ineligible man. A game won on a freak pass reception found the Indians dropped by the Appalachian Mountaineers. 21-19. The Elon Christians ran into a mad bunch of Indians and received a 19-0 scalping at the hands of Coach Bigger ' s men. The Blue Hose of Presbyterian inched by the Indians 20-13. in a hard fought game which saw the Indians hurt by several quick whistles and numerous injuries. The Wofford Terriers fell in the path of the on-charging Indians and took a 20-6 smashing in a game star-studded by Catawba ' s second string men. Guilford College met a similar fate when the Indians sent them to the showers with a 3 3-20 defeat on their shoulders. In a game which was played for the Conference Championship, the Lenoir Rhyne Bears defeated the Indians 34-7 to remain undefeated in Conference play. A jittery Catawba squad fumbled away an opportunity to tie the Bears for the Conference Crown. In winning six games against four defeats the Tribe had what could be described as a " rags to riches " season because past-season ratings found them in second place in the North State Conference — a come back that should be highly commended. 98 HOMECOMING ,- Y.™.

Basketball . . . 1956 The success of the 19 55-56 Indian basketball squad was negative in one respect, but a lot of valuable experience to many freshmen men kept the 195 5-56 season from being a total failure. Dr. Earl Ruth head basketball coach, had a very fine and spirited club, but in the North State Conference a prerequisite to winning is height, something the Tribe did not have. This year ' s team found many veterans returning as well as a lot of fresh- men prospects. Roy Holland. Jack Lyndon. Gene Fleming. Jim Cline. Jim Bryant. Roy Clayton. Pete Stout. Charlie Smith and Buddy Yancey formed the veteran core. Freshmen: Don Hunt. Woody Helfrick, Jerry Earney. Beldy Massey, and David Wachter were some of the men seeing action that will be a big asset to the Tribe teams of the future. The Tribe Jayvees, or Junior Varsity, were outstanding in playing over half their schedule before being defeated. Student Coach Earl Lentz was com- mended for his team ' s fine season. David Wachter, Earl Rudisill, Worth Seats. Terry Babb. Charles Smith. Tom Kiger and James Edmundson were the Jayvees stalwarts. These boys will be the teams of the future on the hard- wood for Catawba, and make the future look brighter than the past. Jack Lyndon. Senior guard from Thomasville. N. C. was the team cap- tain and lead the scoring with double figures most of the season. He and Yancey will be the only members of the 1955-56 team that will be lost by graduation. However, both men will be greatly missed in the future. 102 CATAWBA BASKETBALL SCORES 1955-56 Date Opponent They We Nov. 26 McCrary 7 3 61 30 Belmont Abbey 102 69 Dec. 2 Wofford 93 55 3 Western Carolina 85 72 6 Davidson 96 90 9 East Carolina 69 68 10 Atlantic Christian 100 89 12 McCrary 81 59 14 Pheiffer 88 69 Jan. 4 Parris Island 111 94 7 High Point 58 55 11 Lenoir Rhyne 90 71 14 Elon 90 62 16 Pheiffer 81 79 19 Western Carolina 70 65 21 Appalachian 78 71 28 Elon 97 73 30 Davidson 70 64 Feb. 1 Elon 97 73 3 High Point 72 78 6 Wofford 93 59 Jack Lyndon Captain Row 1 : Yancey.

The spring breezes carried the well known crack of bats up the hill from Newman Park, as he rounded a veteran ball club into a well balanced diamond nine. The 195 5 Tribe diamond boys came so close, yet so far. from winding up in the number one spot in the western division. Having to play Western Carolina for the top slot was a climax to a very fine season, even though the Catamounts edged out the Tribesmen by a slim margin. The 195 5 team ended the season with an eleven wins and eleven losses record. After losing several straight games, the Tribe made one of the most successful comebacks in Catawba ' s history. The team spent the spring holidays at the Parris Island Marine Base, playing the Wofford Terriers en route. This year ' s team was bolstered by a host of starters and many reserves. Losing only two men by graduation last year Coach Richards had a fine nucleus this year. Earl Lentz, Bob Sowers. Gene Fleming. Taft McCoy. Mike Randall. Hal Washam. Bill Beach. Ron Hutchins. Paul Lee, Fred Dun- can, and Jesse Williams were the back bone of the 1956 squad. Fred Duncan, senior fire ball mound ace. and Bob Sowers, speedy center fielder, cap- tained the team this year, and both were stand-outs. Last year Duncan turned in a three wins and two losses record in confer- ence play. Both men are very competent players and fine leaders. Several fine fresh- men prospects were expected to boost the Tribe ' s chances this year. Ex-service man George Schneider of Glassboro. New Jersey, was a fine mound prospect. Co-Captains Bob Sowers.
