THE YEARBOOK OF Florida Presbyterian College St. Petersburg, Florida 1 960- 1 964 The oAoyos Yearbook 1960-1964 OAOrOZ , in early Greek thought means the universal or divine reason of the world. In the New Testament it is generally translated as " THE WORD. " The origin of OAOFOS is the verb AEFfi , whose first meaning seems to be " to pick up " ; from this root evolved the secondary senses: count, tell, recount, say, speak. Various metaphysical writers hove used OAOFOS to symbolize the contact of most acute aware- ness between the physical world and whatever world is beyond our physical vision. Heroclitus of Ephesus, a Greek philosopher, born before 500 B.C., used the AOFOS to mean the " reason " or " law " that controlled the universe. Philo, a Jewish philosopher born about 20 B.C., maintained that the AOFOZ was the intermediary between the transcendent God and the created order. The mean- ing of John seems to be a synthesis between the A0F02 in the Greek sense of a rational principle and the Jewish conception of the divine " wisdom " or intuition, Jesus ' consciousness, accord- ing fo John, consisted totally of this divine quality— a mixture of reason and wisdom— in its essence. 0A0r02 defies a rationol and communicable definition, even though this very quality is its eorhest meaning. There is no equivalent English symbol; consequently 0A0F02 has been trans- literated as " ho logos. " After thousands of years, it symbolizes in the most general philosophical concepts: the universe, its physical and metaphysical totality, which is manifest through one ' s awareness.

IT IS WARM AND HUMAN AND NOISY HERE. Soon it will be time, and we will go. It will never be the same again ... for us or for those who shall come. Lights behind Venetian blinds make crazy, checked patterns in the darkness; somewhere out there intense youth seeks love. To watch, to listen, to savor with the heart, the eye, the mind, the ear, these are pleasures. To be alone, to remember in the midst of it all that we are each dying: the exquisite touch of bitterness in the midst of beauty. IT IS WARM AND HUMAN AND NOISY HERE. Who of us could have known ten or even four years ago that there would be such a night? GO, TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAINS that Jesus Christ is born! Prologue in 1955 a group of representative ministers and laymen of the Synod of Florida (U.S.), with the counsel of Dr. Hunter Blakley, Executive Secretary of the Division of Higher Education of our Board of Education, concurred on the idea of a study ' s being made to discover the possibility of establishing a college in Florida. A group of outstanding educators was secured to make the study by our Division of Higher Education, with the approval of interested Florida Presbyterians. In 1956 the Synod of Florida gave official recognition to these representative Presbyterians, constitut- ing them as a Council under the administration of the Committee on Christian Edu- cation, to cooperate in every way with those making the study. The study . . . was made by co-directors Dr. Gordon W. Blackwell, Director of the Institute in Social Science at the University of North Carolina, and Dr. Francis A. Rosecrance, Associate Dean of New York University. They hod as advisors these outstanding educational leaders: Dr. Theodore A. Distler, Executive Director of the Association of American Colleges; Dr. Wilson Compton, then President of the Coun- cil for Financial Aid to Education; and Dr. Oliver C. Carmichoel, President of the University of Alabama. The study was financed through a $5,000 grant from our Board of Christian Education. In 1957 Synod officially received the finished report of the study committee and authorized the Council of Representative Presbyterians to appoint a committee for the dissemination of the study and a Ways and Means Committee to consider meth- ods by which the college could be brought into reality. In the pursuance of its work the Council modified the Ways and Means Committee into a Coordinating Com- mittee made up of top-flight ministers and elders from representative areas of the state, under the chairmanship of Dr. William H. Kodel, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church, Orlando. In these three years we have proceeded in as prompt and states- manlike manner as possible to determine the facts. We [The Ways and Means Committee] are unanimously convinced that a Presbyterian College is necessary, desirable, and feasible. We believe the time is at hand to establish in Florida a quality institution of Higher Education where young people may prepare themselves for their life v ' ork in the atmosphere of the finest Christian concepts. ' The Synod of Florida (U.S.) accepted those recommendations on May 20, 1958. At that time, the first Board of Trustees was elected. Meeting in Tampa on May 27, the Board selected Dr. Kadel as the first president. A site selection committee was chosen. On September 15, the Site Committee recommended and the Board of Trust ees accepted St. Petersburg as the location for the campus. The Board then adjourned to a joint ses- sion with the Board of Trustees of the Presbyterian College at Winter Haven, a college sponsored by the United Presbyterian Church in the USA. At that meeting, the two groups agreed to merge their efforts. The merger was formally approved by a joint meeting of the two synods at the Interim Campus on October 9, 1958. The Winter Haven movement had begun its efforts in 1957, as a group of interested lay- men led by Dr. Robert M. Pratt. At that time, they formed themselves into the Committee for a Presbyterian College at Winter Haven. Their efforts came to the attention of Dr. Kadel and his committee. Throughout the rest of that year, discussions were held on ways and means to found and possibly merge the two colleges. During this period, the Synod of Florida of the United Presbyterian Church in the USA approved the plan of its laymen and appointed Dr. Pratt as a committee-of-one to continue study. By May of 1958, the discussions between him and the Council of Representative Presbyterians (US) had broken down. The Southern Presbyterians decided to go on alone. At the May 1958, meeting of their Synod (see above), they elected a Board of Trustees and a President, Dr. Kadel. In June, the United Synod adopted a charter for the Winter Haven College and appointed a Board of Trustees. That action caused a reopening of the discussions about a possible merger of the two colleges. By September 1958, those discussions produced an agree- ment whereby the two colleges were combined on a three-fifths US and two-fifths United membership of the Board of Trustees, Dr. Kadel remained President, the St. Petersburg lo- cation for the campus was retained, and Dr. Pratt was to be appointed Vice-President for Development. That September was eventful in other ways, too. Dr. Kadel and Mrs. Emma H. Conboy, Administrative Assistant from the First Presbyterian Church of Orlando, moved from their store-front Orlando office to the Maritime Base in St. Petersburg. By November, plans were being laid for a fund-raising drive to build the college that was to cost $9,300,000 for a " copitol plant " for 1200 students. Dr. Kadel, Dr. Rosecrance and Dr. Bevan got ready to make a series of nationwide trips in search of a better curriculum. Dr. Rosecrance was unable to go. This trip was one of the first signs of things to come. Not only hod we begun to dare and dream in a significant way, but also, the Ford Foundation ' s Fund for the Advancement of Education had given us the first of many grants. With the New Year came the kick-off of the fund-raising campaign and the official ap- pointment of Dr. Bevan as Vice-President for Academic Affairs (Dean). Renovation work began on the Maritime Base. In March, Perkins and Will of Chicago and Connell, Pierce, Garland, and Friedman of Miami were named architects from among seventy-five firms considered. The President of the United States, Dwight D. Eisenhov er, v as made our first Charter Alumnus on April 22, 1959, by Dr. Kadel and Congressman William Cramer. Three days later, Mr. and Mrs. William Luther Cobb, of St. Petersburg, announced that they would sponsor the erection of the Library. Mr. Al Long, of baseball fame, donated $200,000 for scholarships in May. In September, Dr. Pratt announced the Mid-Winter Semester, a three-week program of concentrated study. In October, Brinson-Allen Construction Com- pany of Tampa began to clear the New Campus as their contribution to the College ' s establishment campaign. Between that September (1959) and the moment we began arriving for registration the next, Drs. Bevan and Kadel chose our Founding Faculty, while Dr. J. Thomas West went to work recruiting the Founding Freshmen. Dr. I. G. Foster, Dr. A. H. Carter, Dr. John Dixon, Dr. George Reid, Mr. John Satterfield, Dr. Everett Emerson, Dr. William C. Wilbur, Dr. Dexter Squibb, Dr. Pedro Trakas, Dr. Billy Wireman, Dr. Robert Meacham, Mr. Robert Hall, Dr. Ashley Johnson, Dr. Kenneth Keeton, Miss Florence Sherbourne, Miss Betty Crane, Dr. Dennis Anderson, Dr. Louis Guenther, Dr. Jack Wilson, Mr. Guy Owen Baker, Mrs. Francis Witaker and Dr. Clark Bouwman were Dr. Kadel and Dr. Bevan ' s flock. Dr. West and lots of scholarships charmed 152 of us to the little, concrete, peninsular world. • • • The Year of Beginning 1960-61 In our Pre-College Conferences that summer, we imbibed the heady brew of the " break with tradition, " the " new start, " and " building (or founding) a College. " In our naivete we came to believe that there was little we could not do. As if to prove it, we sat up one night and made a class flag with our emblem on it. Uca Pugnax, the Fiddler Crab, was, we were told, the first inhabitant of the New Campus. Since we were to share that honor with him, the College gave us each a small gold pin with his facsimile on it. In our conferences, we discussed standards of student life and matters of high policy. It was our first encounter with our mentors, the men and women who inhabited the offices of our beloved, if rebelled against, faculty and administration. Together, we formulated the basic guide lines of our collegiate existence. TOPICS TO BE COVERED: What publications should be started at the college? How would you structure o Student government? What responsibilities should it have? What major and minor sports should the college undertake? Are you in favor of an intercollegiate program? Should chapel service be compulsory? Should class attend- ance be compulsory? Do you approve of an honor system of conduct? If so, into what areas should it extend? Do you approve of the conventional grading system? Would you like to see grades and " working for grades " de-emphasized? What sys- tem would you suggest? What social functions and activities would you desire on campus? What sort of attire (dress) [sic] would you consider appropriate for men and women? Should there be any restriction on smoking? What should be the pol- icy on drinking? Should students be allowed to have cars on campus? Should there be curfews for students? Could you formulate an image of what a Founding Fresh- man at Florida Presbyterian College should be? September 2, 1960, was the Big Day. On that day, with Convocation and many high- sounding words, the business of living out the founding of a college began; the years of planning drew to a close. It was the beginning of the difficult road to reconciliation between ideals and realities. We hadn ' t quite settled into our quarters when we had a visitor who sent the men scrambling to vacant rooms in the concrete Main Building. Hurricane Donna, with 125 mile-per-hour winds, roared up the coast, but passed to the east of Tampa Bay. For us, her passing was a two-day party with T.V., Miss Edna Blumenthal ' s inevitable pop-corn. Col. Garner, and a Hurricane Hop. Others, in Central Florida, were less fortunate. But aside from Donna, September passed into October without much disturbance of our now-familiar routine of classes, studies, bull sessions, cuts (of all kinds), coffee, so-so food, and the thud-thud-thud of the pile driver from eight in the morning until five at night with the roar of diesel pumps during the balance of the day. The city was building a new sea wall for the Base. If Donna had been severe, she was nothing compared to the storm which broke on our academic heads with mid-term examinations in mid-October. Fifty per-cent of us come out of that trial with one or more unsatisfactory grades. The picnic was over. The confidence of founding a college was shaken. There was nervous talk of scholarships and how to study. Worry, fear, and depression became common. Not even the calisthenic antics of Mr. Baker and his choir. Miss Blumenthal ' s pop-corn, or hundreds of counseling sessions at all hours with everyone from the Base ' s night watchman to Dr. Bevan were able to stem the breakdown of our morale. As Thanksgiving drew near, there was open talk of not returning in January. Then we went home for a long weekend. And after home cooking and some good doses of parental confidence mixed with scolding, we came back. The world wasn ' t quite so black anymore. Our pre-exam Christmas presents were many. We had our first Formal, the choir gave its first concert, the Trident published its first issue, and the basketball team that we ' d rallied around in the dark days of November as a morale booster, brought home the bacon in two straight wins. The St. Petersburg Times noted that a fellow named Rich Miller would " certainly go down in the school ' s history as he scored twenty-eight points. " The HMS Ulster, visiting our harbor, was sporting enough to accept our challenge to a whaleboat race. We lost, but gained an oar as our first trophy. But best of all was the news the Trident carried as its first headline: FEW DISMISSALS DUE AT SEMESTER END-BEVAN. Persons [he said] who have shown an Interest In the school through regular prepara- tion of assignments, attitude, and compliance with regulations, should not feel In danger of expulsion because of one or more unsatisfactory reports. ' ' Buoyed up with hard work, and all our pre-Christmas presents, we went to the mark again, and did much better than we had two months earlier. That crisis was over. So, too, was our first semester. January and the first mId-Wlnter arrived. The pressures of 8:00 classes and final exams were over. Most of us were back, breathing somewhat easier becouse we had " mode It through " all or part of our first semester courses. Now we had time 10 to think, to write, to be inspired for creativity, to be independent. So, the mid- Winter groups met, the professors said " Come and see me thirty days from now with the results of your study. You ' re on your own. " Thirty days seemed lil e such a long time to write one paper. Surely there were enough hours in the day to sleep until noon, go to the Snack Bar dances every night, cheer loudly at basketball games, indulge in long bull sessions about " what is truth? " or " what do you think about so-and-so? " There were none of those long science labs or W.C. discussion groups or language labs— just twenty-four hours a day to be creative. This was the ideal, but by the third week in January, most of us found ourselves frantically trying to find books to back up any " vague generalizations " we had managed to think of in three weeks. We found that days without classes, just like the busy ones from first semester, simply were not long enough. Where had the thirty days gone? And why was it so hard to be independent without some prod- ding from W.C. discussion leaders? So the typewriters were brought out and used steadily the last week of January. We found that the 500 word W.C. papers which had taken nine hours first semester to write were nothing compared to a ten- or twenty-page research paper. Sleepy-eyed, Floundering Freshmen coming back from the doughnut shop prepared to stay up all night in order to finish what was supposed to reflect a month of independent study. And we looked forward to classes again and the " persuasion " of professors. Most of us made many resolutions never to get behind again. ' That is what January seemed like to our eyes. In reality, we did a lot of work, and fairly steadily. Everyone, including ourselves, was impressed by our performance. Second semester opened on a note of hope despite a few wisps of weariness and frus- tration. The basketball team had a 4—3 record which it stretched to a 6—3 for the season. Social events showed promise of a new gaiety in our off-campus hideaway, the Ford House. Our new Board of Counselors had set to work to " advise college officials on how FPC can reach its goals; help interpret the college to its communities, church, local, and academic; and to lead the public In the financial support of the college. " That last was most timely. Not only was the establishment campaign going into Its last phase, but also, our not-so-wise use of electricity had led to what has turned out to be the first annual blackout. Every unnecessary light was turned off. Equally hopeful was the Trident ' s announcement that Elizabeth Woodward had been accepted as the first member of the Class of 1965. As the semester rolled on, we began to watch the weekly notices of students-accepted-and-paylng-thelr-$50 as if they were stock market quotations. In a sense, they were. It ' s a long time from January 2 to April. Even some of the best socials of the year, ships, new students at the March scholarship conference, and the verbal vendettas of the W.C. staff were not enough to stay the slow decay of our morale. Things got bad, but not so bad as in November. If one watched, he would see that the Snack Bar didn ' t really start to fill up until 10:30, there were fewer bull sessions, and a lot more studying. We were learning. For some, beginning to study came too late. Our land for the new campus remained tied up in a fantastic tangle of petty local poli- tics and law suits. Dr. Kadel kept assuring us nonetheless that we would have at least one full year on our new campus. It seemed awfully far away. For the Sunshine Festival of States Parade, we spent the day as ushers, finally ending up sitting on curbs to eat one of the cafeteria ' s box lunches (ham and cheese sandwiches, apple, and cake with more icing on the paper than on the cake). A day of no classes and the prospect of earning money for the class made up for the tired feet and sunburns we got. Beneath the humor (like that famous caption: Head Fruit Picker Contemplates his Navel Orange) and much of the sincere mutual interest between ourselves and our mentors, there ran less pleasant currents. Dr. Kadel asked the students to show a more positive attitude. " Look back on our short history and see what had been done, " he said. " Then look to the future with confidence and faith. We hove established a goal for ourselves and we will achieve it. " Headline: ANSWER NEVER DEVELOPS IN FORM OF NEGATIVISM. It was easy to pick at little things. We wanted so badly for OUR college to be perfect. In our idealism we denied our own humanity and t ried to deprive our mentors of theirs. It was later said that those tree are brave indeed who allow others to think, speak, and act freely, bounded only by man ' s responsibilty to man.® Our mentors are such brave men. They have taught us to think and speak freely. They have given us maximum opportunities to act freely. The conflicts we have had over the years with them are due to our differing understandings of the limits of " man ' s responsi- bility to man. " Easter vacation sent our choir on a week-long race through Florida. " Wild Bill, " " Twitchy-hips " Carrol, our bus driver, and Mrs. A. W. Rideout, Bunny ' s mother, served to moderate the disputes between the prima-donnas, looked after the little details, and kept us all going. It was a good tour. We made many friends. Most of the rest of us spent the holidays at home, sleeping late and relaxing. Some few went to Lauderdale, some stayed on campus. The second half of the semester opened with the christening of the Triton Den (Snack Bar) by Mrs. Kadel. In another of our shows of esprit (and to help with morale) we had decided to redecorate. A mural, fish net, and zany new menu gave us a real social center. We elected our first officers under the new Student Government Association Constitu- tion. We had plays. Sandpiper concerts, beach parties, intramural softball, Friday night movies, a Lightening class sailboat, and a lot of new ideas to keep us hopping. A special treat was Miss Blumenthal and Mr. Hall ' s candlelight buffet in late April. Spring formal, sea-gull feeding, our first annual Athletic Banquet, the " Cabaret Ole, " (the Spanish Club ' s Fiesta), the Social Science Forum, Artist-Lecturer Series, and the announcement of ground breaking ceremonies for September closed out the year, except for exams. It was a good year. The S tudent Government, Honor Court and Code, Student Christian Association, school colors, nickname. Men ' s and Women ' s Dormitory Councils, Publica- tions Board, intercollegiate sports, basic rules and standards, all had been created. ?« " 12 formulated, or begun. In an end-of-the-term furor, the Trident proposed, and the Col- lege Community decisely rejected, a plan for Freshman Initiaton. Help Week was to take Its place. All the major foundations of student life were laid. We had reason to congratulate ourselves and the mentors who had pushed, coaxed, kicked, and smiled us through the year and its many triumphs . . . and troubles. Especially dear to our hearts was Western Civilization: SUDDENLY, LAST SEPTEMBER ... It all started (but really it may not hove be- cause I can ' t be sure of my position In the time continuum) v ith the need to es- tablish a frame of r eference for my Existential search for meaning In the macroform of the culturally relative reality which I, in my alienation, perceived to exist. The crying need to maintain and enhance my phenomenal self on the proper levels of relative morality acceptable to my culture led me to contemplate the symbol in the vain hope that I could achieve Nirvana. But some Sebastian at the Spring Formal kept urging me to " gouge ' em, " and " be real " and " study the microform. " I Next slide, please.) Anyhow, one day I quit picking my boils long enough to ask the elastic universe whether or not it was relevant to ask where I was at. From ten heterophonic voices shouting in ostinoto motif come back: " Frankly, we don ' t know!, " which. Doc, is why I ' m here. Now, if you ' ll just shut your window. . . ' The summer of 1961 was notable in three ways. We had our first language summer school. With Ford Foundation backing, we tried and partially succeeded in recruiting more students than in 1960. There was only twelve more to be exact, but in the process of getting that class 162, our field workers brought our college to the attention of a wide section of the nation. Of less note, but equal importance, was the slow but sure work of the ground breaking committee. We were honored by the Danforth Curriculum Conference in the form of an invitation to Dr. Bevan and three of our professors to attend a curriculum workshop in Colorado Springs, Colorado. We were the talk of the conference. Pre-college conferences were notable for Dr. West ' s cooking of steaks, upperclassmen ' s doing too good a job of telling freshmen how " tough " the academic load was, and trips to the new campus. Most of our mentors got well earned and much needed vocations. The Year of Disillusion 1 96 1 -62 Our second year began with the usual rush of testing, orientation, and registration. Help Week was not as successful as had been hoped. Distance and conflicting pressures pre- vented thorough planning and execution. One hundred Founding Freshmen came back to greet with great joy and relief the new Class of 1965. We spent a lot of time those first few weeks just getting acquainted. We spent even more studying. Those of us who hod made it through the first year had a seriousness of purpose and a much better un- derstanding of what college was all about. The big event was ground breaking on September 24, 1961. One hundred eighty-six shovels had been collected by the committee from various colleges and universities across our land. After a speech by Vance Packard, music by the Concert Choir, and lots of so- lar radiation, we, the college community— students, faculty, administration, and trustees —gathered by twos and threes on the " pad " for the Dendy-McNair Auditorium and jointly turned our shovels and spades of earth. One year later, almost to the day, the men moved into nearby, but not quite completed, dormitories. Meanwhile, the latest news of construction was of constant interest. Our biggest hassle that semester was the dispute over the court system. The Honor Court justices had spent the summer re-thinking our needs and the means we hod for meeting them. They proposed three levels of courts instead of the existing two. For weeks we argued the issue. At one point it looked as though the majority of students favored the two-court system. Then, strangely, the cry was all in favor of the three-court system. Then, the cries faded and nothing was done. Life is full of paradoxes, and one is evident among the students of FPC: Wher- ever you may go during the hustle, to class, meals, and other activities, you hear murmurs of discontent, though they often rise above a murmur. If you have time to drop everything and join in to ofFer your opinion, you probably could offer quite a few complaints and suggestions yourself. Why? Because it is the same old tune, with a !arge chorus, in notes of discord, the words being: " Where is social life at FPC? " Until the other night, many people would probably have an- swered: " There is none! " However, on October 20, in the snack bar, a group of students held an informal get-together, with some guitars, songs and enthusiastic singers. Not only did people hear news of it, they came, enjoyed it, and stayed! There was a chain reaction from this spontaneous activity and the enthusiasm spread like sparks. There are several reasons that social life is just two words to be cut t o ribbons here, yet there are no reasons for the lock of initiative among the students to do some- thing to give those two words meaning at FPC. It takes a few ideas, a lot of enthusi- asm, and a great deal of initiative and leadership. How about it? When you claim that social life is lacking, ask yourself what you are contributing. Did you fill out one of the suggestion blanks of the Social Club [Social Committee]? Have you taken interest in the clubs, student assemblies, and other offered activi- ties? ' ° The word apathy was not yet part of our vocabulary, but the phenomenon was. Con- nected with it was a slow decline of our morale. It was at its usual low before Thanks- giving and Easter. All was not black that semester. Far from it. Despite staff troubles, the Trident published two issues. The Drama Club began to practice for Henrik Ibsen ' s Hedda Gabler, the choir went touring. The " Men of N " (wing, that is) held " Soiree d Tara " as the Fall For- mal. We began to enjoy the second Artist-Lecturer Series. The Science department got a three-year $30,000 grant from the Research Corporation of New York. We chose our cheerleaders and watched the basketball team prepare for a new season. We were hosts to the Southern Judo Championship in our lecture-hall-dance-hall-chapel- 14 auditorium during early November. Our professors, administrators, students, and musicians spoke and song at increasing numbers of engagements. Our sailing club contributed its share to our tradition of creating new institutions by doing some of the major work in founding the Southeastern Intercollegiate Sailing As- sociation. In the first regatta (November 23, 1961) we lost to Stetson Law School, Stetson University of Deland, and St. John ' s River, Junior College. In our second regatta, during Christmas vacation, we came in second, behind Rollins College. The approach of Christmas brought exams, college Christmas Vesper Service, the an- nual Choir Concert, a semi-formal at the Million-Dollar Pier, several receptions, and preparations for Mid-Winter Semester. " The Men of N " gave the Christmas serenade. We studied, took our exams, and were glad to escape the concrete peninsula for a few weeks. Our second winter term was more serious than the first. Except, that is, for our represent- atives in Mexico who managed to fall off mountains, drop soap in streams, and In general enjoy themselves while studying Spanish and Anthropology. We who stayed at home found time for the Snack Bar, sleeping late, and enjoying ourselves, too. But a great deal more work got done than In the preceding year. The second semester, 1961-1962, was probably the lowest ebb in our corporate spirit. Trident told the story. Headline: WE ' RE BACK IN THE SADDLE. The date, March 9, 1962. It was Volume Two number three. A new staff had finally been formed. CONSTITUTIONAL FUTURE IS DIM? After a four-month pre-occupation with trinkets and trivia, taking port in a revival of student interest is really exciting. This interest hod nevertheless led thus for to a most unfortunate course of action. The SGA had again set out to constitute a com- plete judicial system, this time beginning with preliminary referendums to deter- mine which of four basic types of judicial system the students prefer. We cannot help thinking that a few students have started at the same point in our problem— the middle— as we did before; that we are pursuing a fixed goal with even more desperate obstinacy than before, and that we will reach the same sort of impasse. We have called the present course desperate. Only the tremendous administrative pressure now being applied could force the Constitution Coordination Committee to hope for success. The CCC and the whole student body have been led to believe that the faculty is ready to assume full disciplinary authority unless the students constitute a new court system, immediately. We submit on good authority that not only are many faculty unaware of this proposal, but also that concentrated effort by the administration will be required to cram such a proposal down the faculty ' s throats. In this light the administration ' s threat appears as a scare tactic of the most vulgar kind. The justification ofFered for the tactic seems to be this. You have been unable to constitute a satisfactory court system in eighteen months; therefore, you must do it in one week. We beg the authors of this logic to run, not walk, to the nearest Johnson or Irwin. Considering the circumstances, we believe that the pres- ent course of the student government is cowardly, short-sighted, and will almost surely prove futile. We urge the student body to forget subordinate constitutions and systems for tfie moment and to attack the beginning of the problem, a redefinition of the total stu- dent government. An agreement on our basic responsibilities will come much more easily than agree- ment on formal details. Once we have a basic agreement, we can then turn to the details with far greater hope of success. With hard and purposeful work, the whole job can be done well In the remainder of the semester. Today is not too soon to start. ATHLETES ' OFF-FIELD HABITS SHOW AHITUDE: Immediately following the close of a seasonal sport it is traditional to analyze and review the past and to speculate on the possibilities of the future, if there is a future. The Tritons finished a dismal basketball season with a 5—1 1 record. This record itself does not reveal the reasons for the team ' s failure nor does it indicate their true ability. ... It is true that the Tritons had to contend with many conditions that are not encountered elsewhere. We hove no gymnasium, we hove terrific academic pressures that take priority over everything else, we have also had bad luck with injuries. But, the person who used these circumstances as excuses is looking at a situ- ation and seeing only the surface of it. To be an athlete, or to participate in any sport, a person must have a love for the game, the desire to play. An athlete must also be willing to sacrifice. . . . Irregular hours, Saturday night beers, cigarettes, all of these reveal one thing: poor atti- tude, the attitude that had been exemplified at FPC. Preparation for competition involves not only body conditioning but total mental attitude. The Tritons were never mentally prepared for o basketball gome. When players ask to see their points scored while the coach is outlining strategy, they exhibit a gross lack of interest in the game. Argument by a player after the game OTi whether he scored three points or five points is not always wrong but, when your team lost by 35 points, then it is a safe bet that such a player does not belong on the court. The attitude shown by the Tritons off the court was the same as their attitude during the games. The slipshod play of the Tritons revealed their flagrant disregard of training procedures. No matter how much the players insist that training rules don ' t make that much difference in their performance, a tenth of a second in reflex action is still the difference between good and bod play, and smoking and drinking do slow down reflexes. The disgrace does not lie in losing a ball game, but it lies in not putting forth extra effort, in not trying to play at your peak. Some colleges hong the coaches in effigy after a losing season. I say, " If the shoe fits, wear it. " The shoe I refer to fits any one of a dozen feet, none of which are Coach Wireman ' s. " The fighting and squabbling over the court system dragged on despite the unveiled hands of our mentors. After two weeks of Sunday afternoon meetings, some agreement emerged. The whole problem had been brought up anew by efforts of the Student Coun- cil to rewrite the old constitutions into a single document. Easter vocation broke off the discussion. By the time the revised documerrt was ready, it was mid-May. In the midst of examination preparations, we took time to approve the new constitution. 15 PRESBYTERIAN September 1 960 And so it is begun ... An Interim Campus fl), the Founding Freshmen Flag (2), Governor Collins at Con- vocation ' 3,5), and the inevitable testing ' 4i, these were all part of those first days.

The professors, needless to say, were proud (1). But who could tell whether this was a more exciting moment for first faculty or Founding Fresh- men? Everyone had something to say (2,3,4,5), but finally Dr. Elder ' s address was over (6); the awards were presented: the Phillip Lee Honor Award for the junior or senior who has made the most significant contribution to the college community to Peter France (7), the Ronald Wilson Memorial Award for the second most significant contri- bution to the college community to Jean Johannessen (8), the E. W. Smith Memorial Award for the male student most outstanding in the fields of scholarship, citizenship, and athletics to Rich Miller (9), and the Founding Freshman Plaque from the Aquillas to the college to honor the Founding Freshman Class (10); and the first class received their diplomas (11) before bidding us farewell (12). 78 W If ■ n . the end 30 We did our yearly stint at the Sunshine Festival that spring. Intramurals were the big news in sports, although our first tennis team and our new golf team were both doing their share in the outer world. The Sailing Club took part in the World Championship Flying Dutchman Regatta and hosted the Southeastern Intercollegiate Sailing Association in its third regatta. The French Club put on the first annual Mardi Gras, complete with Dr. Carter ' s songs in French, a kissing booth, and costume judging. There was the an- nual scholarship conference. The Flu made a three-week stand on our campus in Feb- ruary. Drama flourished with Hedda Gabler and a repeat of The Birds in W.C. We hosted a high-school foreign policy conference in April. Sadie Hawkins struck, under the direction of " Carter ' s little pills, " the women of " B " wing. Easter vacation sent the choir as far as New Orleans on its tour. Some of us went to Lauderdale or that new place called Daytona Beach. When we came back from vacation, we settled back into our old ways. Academically we were doing very welL But the divergence of our interests from those of our mentors and even each other was growing, not declining. By mid-May we had only paid up 42% of our pledges for student relief, and that in spite of the fac t that we had taken to our hearts the Cuban refugees the money was to help. It was a sad day. Elections for new officers showed how little of the old founding spirit was left. The Trident spoke of " wide spread apathy. " ' There are many ways to analyze what was happening to us. One fact stands out. We, the students, were choosing our academic careers and shirking our community responsi- bility. Some of our mentors must have been overjoyed; others, notably in the administra- tion, began to grow dismayed, even bitter. Our choice, at that time still being formu- lated, was already showing what it would mean in terms of the life of the student body. FPC, very likely, was not going to have the customs and institutions (like an Alma Mater) that some persons had envisioned here. Such persons, as we, were forgetting that a new academic scheme was not likely to produce or tolerate traditional patterns of college life. When we as students helped to establish this college nearly two years ago, we en- tered into a revolutionary atmosphere. We hod a lofty, two-fold purpose: to excel academically and to create a new concept— the Christian college community. As in so many revolutionary situations, the theoreticians ruled supreme, the philoso- phers were kings, and almost everyone seemed to be a little bit of a philosopher. In the course of ordering our new society, we instituted an honor system which, al- though admittedly Utopian, was apparently heartily accepted by all. As time wore on, we followed the seemingly traditional pattern of revolutions, for the theoreti- cians were ousted or held in general disdain, being replaced by the more prac- tical, self-styled " realists, " who saw the need to " get something done. " Buckling under the pressure of the new group, strengthened by some administrative protest, the old school swung over and, calling up a rather ambiguous phrase, " integrity of the college community, " attempted to pass legislation designed to protect the system and its courts, deeming that individual interests could be served by the maintenance of a strong impersonal community, one in which the individual became a statistic derived by dividing the total population of the community by the number of persons in it. Fortunately this attempt was abrogated by an essentially conservative community, which, for all its indifFerence, at least hindered the bad along with the good. 81 After this flurry of activity, both schools settled down into almost complete inactivi- ty, only occasionally being pestered by irresponsible statements that the adminis- tration was preparing a coup which would stifle the dying revolution and bring about reversion to a traditional, oppressive big-stick policy. And so, we now find ourselves in this situation, the revolution having lost its momentum, the indifference for the individual being evident on almost every level of the community ' s activities. The brave new concept of Christian community had been relegated to a small group of faculty and administration members who discussed this apparent dream in the privacy of their homes, no doubt becoming involved in quite fascinating mental gymnastics which they apparently do not deign to shore with the other members of the community. Where do we go from here? While I realize that is no longer a significant question for many in the community, for those who remain interested, I suggest a sharp re- examination of our original revolutionary goals. Having studied for two years the successes and failures of western civilization within its Christian heritage, we should by now be able to make much more meaningful judgments than we ever could be- fore. It is my judgment that the first step we must take is a re-examination of the concept of individualism as tempered by our Christian orientation. I believe that we must now come to realize that individualism has two very definite aspects— an honest evalua- tion of our own worth, of course, but also an honest evaluation of the worth of our brothers. Thus, within our honor system, our first obligation is not to the system or to some nebulous idea of integrity, but rather to our brothers. This obligation seems to me to be a real and pressing one, which must take precedence over any blind reverence for the laws and rules. We must remember that the whole ordering of our society is for our convenience, protection, and growth— that laws were mode for us, not we for the laws. I therefore call on you, as members of this community, to rekindle the revolutionary fires and to help re-establish for the first time a Christian community of love and concern to replace the condition of moral inertia in which we now find ourselves. ' ' ' To cap off the year, there was the integration crisis. Exactly what happened has not been made public. What is known is that sometime between the time the college charter went through the Synods and that June, the clear understanding that we would admit negro students, as soon as one applied who was qualified, was put aside. In place of that procedure was another. The decision to admit or reject a qualified negro was to rest in the hands of the Board of Trustees. The faculty, which had come here with the original understanding, was unaware of the change in intent in high places until the April meeting of the Board was postponed to June. The Board was to have decided on the admission of a negro student. June brought the Board ' s decision that they would " consider admission of negro students when the college is on this permanent campus in 1963. ' " " The faculty prepared a protest through the college chapter of the American Association of University Professors. At a called faculty meeting, our mentors were told that only an emergency could cause the calling of a Board meeting before October. Only such a meeting could reverse our status as a " segregated— until " institution. The next morning. Dr. Kadel had twenty-eight resigna- tions on his desk. He was expected to add his to the pile. For our part, all we knew was that the Board had acted, that the faculty was threaten- ing to resign, and that many of us were intending to go with them if they left. In the midst of a milling and emotional group of some sixty of us. Dr. Kadel asked that we keep our knowledge quiet, write to him about how we felt, and wait. The measure of our concern and respect both for our college and for him is to be found in the unanimity with which we followed his request. 82 During the summer a joint faculty-trustee committee worked out an agreement that a clear statement would be issued at the October meeting of the Board and that it would be for the admission of negroes. The Board duly made its commitment. That summer we had language summer schools as usual. Construction on the new campus stopped during a strike of glaziers. The greatest efFect of this strike was to prevent work on the dormitories and cafeteria which we were building thanks to a $1,225,000 loan from the Housing and Home Finance Agency. Our admissions people were out in strength, as usual. For the second year running, the Ford Foundation ' s Fund for the Advancement of Education was helping us with our nation-wide student recruitment program. Some of us went abroad to study languages; Dr. Bouwman made a movie in Mexico. The rest of us rested, read, and had fun. In August, professors and library were moved to the completed buildings on the new campus. The Year of the Split Campus 1 962-63 September, 1962, was an exciting time. Our dormitories were not ready because of the strike. Plans had called for the men to occupy their dorms as soon as school opened; the women ' s dormitories weren ' t to be ready for use until sometime later. Accordingly, provision had been made for the women to live in the barracks. Down to the very last moment construction and college officials had hoped and expected the men ' s dorms to be ready. Unavoidably, there were delays. Most of the men, except those who were to room on the old campus, ended up sleeping for a week in the old academic building. To get to class on the new campus, we commuted by bus. The cafeteria staff did a heroic job of getting lunches to us in makeshift lines. It was a novel experience and even real fun, for a while. When the men ' s dorms were finally cleared for occupancy, the question came up whether to wait a few more days or a week and allow the completion of hot water and air- conditioning systems or to move. Some of us urged the move. We knew from the first year that close quarters, lack of private study areas, and the pressure of commuting would put a speedy end to our high morale. Thus was the decision taken. We moved in buses and trucks. After we were in the new dorms awhile without hot water (except in Knox House), occasionally late suppers, sand everywhere, and for a short while, partial power, we complained— and in loud masculine voices. In retrospect, our complaints seem rather silly; life would have been much worse had we stayed on the old campus. So we settled down to commuting to the other campus (which ever one the other was) and lunches in our unfinished cafeteria. It was nice to have a new campus. Sometimes the boys In the " monastery " got rowdy, then was when it was nice to go to the library on the old campus— where the girls were. That autumn was disturbed by only three events of consequence. Early in September, the first voices of criticism of the architecture of our campus were raised. We ' d seen some of the world ' s best architecture in western civilization and we knew that ours was not of like caliber. People got hot under the collar and words flew. The subject of this letter Is a relationship of idea and practice: how current thought on New Campus Architecture relates to the functional basis of this school, " excel- lence In all things " . . . Thus for, for FPC, advances In the direction of truly Im- aginative architectural accomplishment hove been few, incomplete, and sporadic . . . Apparently this firm [Connell, Pierce, Garland, and Friedman] (known gener- ally In architectural realms as good consultants, period) has genuinely tried to pre- sent something to this school worthy of the means available and of the prestige 83 of the client. Their designs affirm the strength of their attempt, but that is all— these designs do not present imagination and artistic integrity. ' Simple architecture with certain faults, was not what most of us wanted. Small wonder then that we gave the design consultant from Chicago a difficult time after he told us that we did not have " monumental " architecture because it might overpower the student. The crowning touch was the curtain for Dendy-McNair. It wasn ' t too bad by itself, but to try to follow a lecturer with his back to it was nearly impossible. The curtain was taken down and reversed; we got absorbed in other things and accepted what we could not change. One of those other things was the Cuban Crisis. It was real to us because Tomas, a Cuban refugee, was called by his fellow exiles to Miami to enlist in the U.S. Army. Young jingoists that we were, we gave him a good send-off. Fortunately, the Russians backed down and Tomas returned to school. No sooner had we put Tomas on the bus than an Army landing craft floatilla appeared in Bayboro Harbor. They left in early December. In the interim, we were off-limits to them, though there was a great deal of mutual curiosity. The other great event was the moving of the women to their dorms on the New Campus. By then, the cafeteria was working. The buses still ran shuttle to the other world, but a whole new type of life began as the majority of us started to learn to live on our new, permanent campus. The fences of the women ' s dorms invoked the good-humored sign " Please do not feed the animals. " Dances in the cafeteria became common. We enjoyed the cars that a more liberal regulation permitted us to have. We got " homesick " for the old campus; we got tired from commuting to science labs and old campusers of commut- ing to classes. Less spectacular, but of significance, were some little things. The Board of Trustees set- tled the problem of integration in October (see above); the AAUP attacked the Johns Committee for its " irresponsible investigations and loose charge of obscenity " ... ' Asian Studies brewed up a small tempest. Rumor had it that Dr. Wireman was to become Dean of Men. Some quiet voices began to advocate daily, twenty-minute chapels, in- stead of our weekly hour service. There was the usual griping . . . and unwillingness to take any responsibility to correct the sources of complaint. Filling operations began in October. Miss Blumenthal left to do therapy work with retarded children. Socially, it was a great semester. We started off with the Encephalitis Stomp and New- ton House ' s Luau at the Outrigger Inn. C-Wing presented a " Witches ' Waltz " for Halloween. We had the Christmas Formal at the Outrigger. The newly begun College Lecture Series was on immediate success. Artist-Lecturer Series concerts, like choir and Sandpiper concerts, drew larger audiences than before. Intramural sports were even more popular, though some dorms showed notable lack of spirit. The Tritonettes were busy winning games in softball and preparing, as were the Tritons, for the basketball season. Our Judo team was winning meets. The College Drama Group presented three one-act plays in December. That semester was notable as the first in which the pre-Thanksgiving blues stayed away from our campus. The excitement of the New Campus, moving, and an increase in our size were probably the reasons for this change. In December, a record freeze coated trees with icicles. We had some trouble with our 84 heating units. A lucky few spent the night at the Outrigger Inn. For Winter Term, we chose from an expanded list of topics. Unfortunately, almost half of them were advanced beyond the competence of most freshmen. The month was its usual success, nonetheless. Our foreign travelers went to Haiti and Puerto Rico for language study. When we weren ' t filling out inter-library loan forms, studying or dis- cussing, we slept, walked on the fill, and (for a few) cheered at Tritonette games in red nightshirts. It was our month of blessings. The Danforth Foundation gave us $6,000 for " visiting re- source personnel. " The National Science Foundation gave Dr. Paul J. Haigh a $12,000 grant for research. Mills and Jones Company won the contract for the two and three- fifths new dormitories. Applications for the class of 1967 were coming in at a good pace. The Rotary Club of St. Petersburg gave us the flags which fly before the library. In basketball, the Tritons made a lot of news, but had a bad season due to injuries and academic drop-outs. The big event that January was Dr. Kadel ' s inaguration on the eighteenth. It was held in Pasadena Community Church with all the pageantry of a combined academic and re- ligious service. Dr. Glenn S. Dumke, Chancellor of California State Colleges, delivered an excellent address. Mr. J. Colin English, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, inaugu- rated Dr. Kadel. Part way through his acceptance speech. Dr. Kadel paused to introduce Dr. Samuel H. Forrer of Lakeland. To our surprise and joy, he announced that he was giving about $160,000 to pay for the new language center building which was to be built that summer. With the conclusion of the ceremonies, students returned to the cafe- teria for a bufFet luncheon such as we ' d never had before, but occasionally since. The Dignitaries had lunch elsewhere. In the afternoon, the William Luther Cobb Library and Dendy-McNair Teaching Auditorium were dedicated in a service on the mall in front of the library. After that, we held open house. It was an exciting day; we had come of age as a college. February opened second semester with a conference on Southeast Asia. The conference was part of a series held at Stetson University, Rollins College, Florida Southern College and FPC. The Danforth Foundation helped underwrite the cost. The conference was the occasion for an incident which has been repeated, mentally if not vocally, on a number of occasions since. One of the speakers had gotten the impres- sion that we were a small and not very spectacular institution. He hadn ' t really pre- pared, he said. When he got here and was cross-examined by some of us, he realized his mistake and apologized to the heads of the conference. It was a small thing, but typical of many which are helping to teach the outside world what is being done at a small Christian college. That February, we learned a new word: Sward. In two days, we had over sixteen inches of rain. Because our campus development was only beginning, water collected every- where. To aid walkers on the path through the woods (it ran through the area now occupied by the College Union), some of us put out life rings and built board walkways. That flood dried up, but we still wondered about our below grade walks and the drain- spouts that emptied on them. March brought the Spanish Club ' s yearly fiesta and a pinata that looked like Castro. The second Foreign Policy Conference for high school students was a big success. We worked at the Sunshine Festival again. It got warm. Dr. Wireman became Dean of Men. Dr. West got a well earned vote of thanks for his work in that post. We studied, went to 85 the old campus to sail, went walking on the fill, or explored buildings under construction. AAorale held up all the way to Easter vacation, despite many complaints about social life— and inaction on the part of almost all of us to do something about it. Our choice of our academic responsibilities before our community ones became a fact with which to live. Not everyone was happy about It. April ' s big event was elections. To spark student interest, campaigning was tried for the first time. Posters and signs were everywhere. Some of the political science majors put their knowledge to work and sold their candidate to us in a close election between many good men for the office of Student Government President. In all respects, the ex- periment with campaigns was successful. The Fiji Island Party, baseball. Parents ' Day and anecdotes of the bicycle trip to Miami over Easter all added to the social scene that April. Our tennis team made news. Dr. John D. McCrone got a $25,000 grant to study black widow spiders. We got a new bas- ketball coach; applications were setting records for numbers and caliber of students. The semester closed with the Spring Formal at the moonlit patio of the Outrigger Inn. We held our first awards assembly and our annual athletic banquet. Construction of three million dollars worth of new buildings was in full swing. Our sister-city guest from Japan, Mr. Nobuaki Hasui, (Hasui to us) began a round of farewells accompanied by the news that Mrs. Frederick Leighton had given $50,000 to FPC to pay for the visits of himself and those who would follow him from Tokamatsu during the years. Exams came and we drifted away, except those who were to attend the " What is a Christian College con- ference. " The Christian College Conference was an exploration by means of papers and discussion groups of what that concept might mean. After two days of very theoretical discussion concerned mostly with the role of faculty and staff, three of the students sat up all night and wrote their paper. The substance of the message was that we had a college which called itself Christian and that that college ' s actions were what needed to be discussed and evaluated to see if they were in fact Christian. The response to that paper was an index of the diversity of viewpoints that had developed in our college community. That we should disagree on what to evaluate, when to change, and how to change was to be expected. What was unexpected was a marked unwillingness to carry on a true dialogue over these issues. The summer had its usual language summer school. There were other courses ofFered, too, in reading, literature, and logic. Construction went on rapidly and Pre-College Conference came and went. It was also the occasion of Drs. Keeton and Krietz ' s summer language school in Germany. Coming of Age 1 963-64 September, 1963, was the beginning of our first year as a four-year college. The Found- ing Freshmen were seniors. There was a general feeling of pride and unity among us. It was a difFerent kind of unity from what one hundred fifty of us had known the first year, but its existence marked the end of the subsequent two years of confused searching 86 for new answers in changing circumstances. The sense of stability which the new cam- pus and our four-year status provided had much to do with the new feeling. Our new esprit found expression in the number and variety of our social activities. They ranged from a hootenanny-protest dance, through the Poker Flats Swing, to the Winter Formal. In a burst of enthusiasm, we attempted to sponsor a performance of the Four Freshmen, only to discover that the enthusiasm of our fellow students did not extend to buying tickets. Increased school spirit resulted in good sports teams, both inter-collegiate and intramural. In keeping with our new four-year status, the Tritons played their first all senior college basketball schedule. Our opponents included such schools as RoJIins, Georgia State, Ten- nessee Wesleyan, and Florida Southern ' s regular team. Our team finished second in the first annual Suncoast Classic Basketball Tournament. The Tournament was the creation of Coach Harley. The Tritonettes did well but were defeated for the first time in three- and-a-half years! Of course, no one could forget the Darwin— Newton intramural foot- ball game. Both sides went out for blood as was evidenced by Darwin ' s meat grinder float. On a rainy Sunday afternoon, the boasts of Darwin went down before the Newtonians. A definite aid to recreational activities was the opening of the Alpha Lounge for table tennis and pool. The Optimist Pram Club of St. Petersburg ' s donation of twenty-nine sail- ing dinghies to the Sailing Club aided both sailing instruction in Physical Education and the club ' s own program. This was the semester of anxious consultation of seniors and their professors. Those who wanted (and were urged) to attend graduate school needed counsel on everything from where to apply to what to expect from the experience. Others of us were going into business or the armed services; all of us, it seemed, needed one or more letters of recom- mendation. In the midst of Graduate Record Examinations and the endless forms, there came first an inspecting team and then provisional accreditation from the Southern As- socfotion of Colleges and Universities. We and our " sister " institution (founded in 1958, as we were), the University of South Florida, were the first institutions to be so honored. We first heard the news of the shooting of President John F. Kennedy in many ways. But as word spread about two o ' clock that Friday afternoon, we gathered in groups around radios and T.V. ' s to hear each bulletin. Those who heard them will never forget the an- nouncer ' s " Ladies and Gentlemen, the President is dead. " We stood in stunned silence for a moment, and we went to lower the flags, or to cry, or to try to keep from crying, or to curse, or to wander about in disbelief. We held a memorial service that afternoon —it was the first time that Dendy-McNair was filled beyond capacity for a religious serv- ice. The next three days were spent by many of us in watching the national homage to one whom we loved. We expressed our emotions and responses to our tragedy in many ways. The best was the tears of those who were not ashamed to cry. That Thanksgiving was a time of sadness. But that sadness passed away as we prepared for Christmas and exams. January and Winter Term were times for theses and comprehensives for most seniors. Underclassmen chose their usual five options from the lists of topics offered. Surprisingly, more freshmen got their first choices this year than had been the case before, but the rest of us were not so lucky. Our traveling group went to London. Unlike previous years, they studied everything except language. (It was just a matter of curiosity). As in years past, our foreign travelers brought back many tales. For those who remained behind, it was a quiet month, except for basketball games. 87 Second semester was marked by an abandonment of frequent social events and (in some cases) of the charging of fees which had been introduced the previous semester in an efFort to up-grade activities by giving them more financial support than the college could provide. The Valentine ' s Dance, Sadie Hawkins Dance, the Mardi Gras (French Club), the Fiji Island Party, the Spring Formal, and the Spanish Club ' s Fiesta were highlights of the season. When it got warm, we treked to our pool or the beaches. A perpetual favor- ite was the Friday night movie in the auditorium. The crowning touch was the Luau put on by the College and Morrison ' s. It came complete with hollowed-out pineapples to drink from and entertainment from the Outrigger Inn. There were problems in getting a majority of the student body to vote on a referendum on whether our various courts were to be opened or closed to the public during trials. We will long remember the Great Flood in early October. A southwest storm and high tides brought Boca Ciega Bay lapping about the south end of Berkeley House. We were assured that filling and sea walling would help prevent a recurrence of such an event. Elections were fought with little student interest and much less campaigning than the year before. There were a few stormy moments with the administration, but for the most part, we had little contact with them. Academically, we won the honor and shared the glory of having Jean Johanessen and Peter France named Woodrow Wilson Fellows. Linda Staufer, Carolyn Hall and Jean brought home Fulbright Fellowships. Several other seniors received sizeable scholarships or assistantships. Almost half of our graduates planned to enter graduate school. Our yearly conference on Foreign Policy and Asia proved better than ever. Applications and admissions set new records. Oral exams on these and comprehensives bcame the subject of conversation. Not all was rosy, however. Language majors reeled after they got their GRE advanced tests back; our aural-oral approach had not equipped them for com- petition with students who had had more conventional courses. Some of us hadn ' t com- pleted our language requirements. It was o mad rush those last two weeks of the term. Some of the seniors didn ' t complete their graduation requirements. Most of these persons expect to complete their graduation requirements by the end of the Summer. We mixed with our parents, relatives, professors and administrators that afternoon. It was the first annual Faculty Reception in honor of the seniors. There were the usual words of commendation, and many sincere words of mutual estime. That night, we held our first annual alumni banquet. It was an excellent meal. The speeches which followed asked for our continued interest and support of our alma mater. We elected our first Alumni Association officers in one minute, a record for any election by our class. After our of- ficial business meeting, many of us stayed to fill out the forms for the $2,000 life-insur- ance policies we had agreed to take out for the college as our first participation in its development program. Sunday, May 31, many of us went to church in St. Petersburg for the last time. Others stayed on campus and packed or slept. All of us were saying good-bye to almost every- one. At three-thirty, we gathered in H 108 to robe for the Baccalaureate service. With due pomp, we took our seats in Dendy-McNair. It was an excellent service; our speaker was Dr. Donald G. Miller, President of Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. His sermon was thought-provoking.— After the service, we met parents and friends for the first time in our black gowns and mortar-boards. 88 After changing from our costumes to our " civies, " we escorted our parents to a dinner in their honor which Dr. and Mrs. Kadel gave in the Student Union. The meal was bufFet- style. Conversation with trustees added sparkle to the occasion. Following dinner, Dr. and Mrs. Kadel, and Mr. and Mrs. Hubbard (he was Chairman of the Board of Trustees), presented our parents with a small " degree " in recognition of their role(s) in our success- ful completion of our educations at FPC. After these formalities, we dispersed to conver- sations with relatives, friends, and more packing. Monday, June 1, dawned clear but cooler than we had expected. After breakfast, we made last minute preparations for graduation exercises. At nine, we took the buses to the Pasadena Community Church. Some of us went with our folks. From nine-thirty to a quarter-to-ten, we robed, talked, and excitedly read the program ' s list of honor graduates. At nine-forty-five, we lined up outside behind the choir. Behind us were the faculty and stafF, representatives of the Board of Trustees, and the platform party. As we marched in there were last-minute adjustments of tassels, nervous jokes, and the photographers taking our pictures for T.V. and family albums. Dr. Elder, the Dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences of Harvard University, delivered our commencement address. It was sparkling with wit. The gist of Dr. Elder ' s re- marks was that we, the first alumni, should give thought to what we want FPC to become (or remain) before the pressures for making her a university or research center or any of many other things grew beyond control. His axe, which be ground very well, was that our alma mater should remain a small, liberal-arts college. After the second anthem by the choir. Dr. Kadel announced honors and awards. Peter France was awarded the Phillip Lee Honor Award. Jean Johannessen received the Ron- ald Wilson Memorial Award. Rich Miller was honored with the E. W. Smith Memorial Award. The Aquillas presented the Founding Freshmen Class with a stainless steel plaque bearing the signatures of the original members of our class. Following these presenta- tions. Dr. Bevan presented our class, and each of us individually, to Dr. Kadel for the conferring of our degrees. It was a proud moment for each of us. We marched out. A part of our lives was over, a new part had begun. We milled about with parents, relatives, friends, professors, staff, townspeople, and each other. We said good-byes and accepted congratulations. We took pictures. We turned in our gowns. Lunch; packing; tears; happiness and relief; long and short trips home; jobs; military serv- ice; marriage plans: so many things occupied that afternoon. It is cool and human and quiet here. Outside, bulldozers roar. It was time. We hove gone. It will never be the same again ... for us or for those who shall come. 1.

The S.G.A. organizes and presents the social functions on campus and other programs of interest to the students. In the first year the officers were Richard Petty, replaced by Leonard Henry; Presi- dents; Jonny Haar, Vice-President; Wadine Chesser, replaced by Emalou Grable, Recording Secretary; and Fred Wright, Treasurer. During this first year the first constitution of the S.G.A. was written and passed. It estab- lished the Honor Code and Honor System of Florida Presbyterian College. Under the S.G.A., the Social Committee was responsible for the social pro- gram of the students and sponsored many memorable events that year. The Ways end Means Committee organized the participation in the Sun- shine Festival Parade. Also under the S.G.A., many campus clubs and or- ganizations were founded. Some of the most important functions of the S.G.A. the first year were the establishment of the newspaper, the school colors, nickname and symbol. Officers in 1961-62 were: Richard Miller, President; Raymond Schmidt, Vice-President; Phyllis Andrews, Recording Sec- retary; Sally Oberst, Corresponding Secretary; and Sandy Sloan, Treas- urer. Under the leadership of these officers the first revision of the con- stitution was made. They also decided on the college ring and negotiated the manufacture of the ring. Officers in 1962-63 were: Raymond Schmidt, President; David Rankin, Vice-President; Judy Brisbin, Recording Secretary; Vickie Jeffries, Corresponding Secretary; and Barbara Shuman, Treasurer. The S.G.A. established more stable functions. They represent the student body ' s opinion to faculty and administration, provide for the social program and administer the funds for the social functions, provide films almost week- ly for the enjoyment of the student body, and send delegates to the na- tional conventions of the student government officers and representatives. In this third year the Student Regulations Court was established. Officers in 1963-64 officers were Paul Dietrich, President; Randy Ranson, Vice-Presi- dent; Marietta Marra, Recording Secretary; DeeDee Jacobs, Corresponding Secretary, and Roymond Schmidt, Treasurer. These officers carried out the general functions set up in the third year and worked on the third revision of the Student Government Association Constitution. The SGA Legislative council meets once every week. The entire Student government association meet once or twice a year. Honor Court The Honor Court, founded in 1961, is the instrument of the Honor Code and is bound to castigate any violators of the Code. The Court has oper- oted with a concern less for the system than for the welfare of the indi- vidual. Sentences, as such, are assigned with a view toward a positive reinforcement of the individual ' s positive reinforcement of the individual ' s acceptance of responsibility for his own actions and relationships with the community ot large. Members in the fall of 1961 were Chief Justice Grover Wrenn and Justices Jeon Clarke, Robert Dennis, Sara Sue Phelps, Richard Kadel, Addie Lou Lightner, and Allison Reams. In the spring of 1962 members were Chief Justice Cover Wrenn and Justices Peter France, Addie Lou Lightner, Allison Reams, Cynthio Northrup, Dona Simmons, and Richard Kadel. In 1962-63 members were Chief Justice Peter France (fall 1962) and Chief Justice Rob- ert Dennis ' spring 1963) with Justices Elizabeth Woodward, Bob Conklin, Susan Dunn, Beverly Jones, and Sara Sue Phelps. In 1963-64 members were Chief Justice Robert Dennis and Justices Dave Nichols, Elizabeth Wood- ward, Bill Heck, Dwight Bozeman, Judy Brisbin, and Tom Bacon. Student Regulations Court Tlie Student Regulations Court was begun in 1962. It deals with the regu- loions set by the students for the students in order to maintain a harmoni- ous community. The Student Regulations Court was set up in addition to the Honor Court because there was o need to deal separately with those refroctions which were regulatory in nature. Officers in 1962-63 were Choncello Poul Dietrich, Susan McEwen, Leonord Henry, Jim Childers, Danny Chandler, Rondy Beckham, and Mac Buntin.

Seeing the need for an information booklet, she got information from various sources and as- sembled it. The books w-ere printed by Brewton Company in Orlando as a donation to the College. Paul E. Hoffman took over the Editorship in 1962- 63. An onnual staff, formed in September 1962, saw it could not hope to publish an annual that year and thus, to gain experience, it took up the Handbook. The cover design by Tom Price won in a competition of the student body. The Book was a combination of Yearbook and Handbook in response to demands of students. Publication dotes were September 1961, August 1962, and September 1963. College Yearbook Discussions were held in the summer of 1961 with Mr. Pob Pierce, Director of Public Relations; Paul Hoffman; Leigh Miller; and others. The group defined goals and desired ends. September, 1961, saw meetings, initially well attended, in which the need for much time and work if the yearbook were to be published in 1962 was realized. Financial studies showed that cost would make printing a yearbook almost impossible. The staff decreased to a few. The Board of Student Publications approved the " No Annual Proposal. " In October, planning for the book was put on the shelf, but some work was done. On February 10, 1963, the first meeting was held to set up final organization for the yearbook. Paul E. Hoffman, Editor of the Handbook-Yearbook since 1 962, assumed the 1 963-64 Editorship of the yearbook. Student Handbook The Student Handbook was started in the spring and early summer of 1961 to provide students, especially new students, with the basic facts about the Editor ' s Notes This book is dedicated to all who have helped found Florida Presbyterian College, but particularly to the Founding Freshmen, the Founding Faculty, and the Founding Ad- ministration. Everything in this book has been subordinated to the design. Some persons and groups hove been left out; these omissions were unintentional. We plead that our task was too great— four years of history in ninety-six pages! There are some out-and-out experiments in this book. Some of these experiments were dictated by the necessity of telling the story of four years of college history in a small book; others are attempts to see what effects can be produced. The written history is my own; I regret that I was not able to include more of the details of the past four years. Errors, omissions, misinterpretations are my responsibility. If this history is notable for its lack of mention of individuals, it is because the events that are recorded here are too recent to permit the naming of names and the assigning of motives which goes with that practice in good historiography. When it has been possible to de- termine it, I have assigned responsibility ... to groups. It is my hope that in a few years, our community (and the individuals in it) will be mature enough to permit the writing of a comprehensive history in which the role of individuals will be spelled out. It is traditional for an editor to express his thanks to his stafF. So be it. I owe a special debt to several of them, a debt which mere words do not adequately express. For Four days, John Spragens, Lynn Hestir, Margaret Heath and Nancy Sanders worked with me ten to fifteen hours each day to complete this book. Harvey JefFeries, Darlyn David- son and Wilmar LaBrant did excellent work in photography, many areas, and advertise- ment sales, respectively. In a student body which has been noted for its unwillingness to accept responsibilities, these seven stand out for their acceptance of responsibilities and the tireless devotion with which they saw them through to the end.
