KW I I RUDOLPH A. HOPPE Editor OSCAR JOHNSON --Bus. Mgr. Volume XXI Published by the Students of TENNESSEE WESLEYAN COLLEGE Athens, Tenn. DEDI C Al ION To the progress of a greater Wesleyan we dedicate this twenty-first volume of the NOCATULA. May the interest and progress shown in this present Forward Movement be characteristic of the future of a great college, Tennessee Wesleyan. 21103 f|=:|j5| THE HACKBERRY AND OAK MERNER - PFEIFFER LIBRARY TEN ESSEE WESLEYAN COLLEGE ATHENS, TENNESSEE FOREWORD Th8r€ is a beautiful legend concerning two trees on our campus which has come to us from the Indians of this section of the United States. Because of its appropriateness we have selected it as the theme of this volume. The undying love and devotion of the Indian maiden and her lover in the legend signifies our own love and devot on to Wesleyan. May this book, as well as the story, serve to remind us of laborious, but happy days spent on the campus. A summary of the legend is begun below and continued on the division pages which follow Many years ago white soldiers came to the Indian town of Chota, on the Tennessee River, and erected a fort which they called Fort Loudon. The soldiers were honest and fair in their dealings with the Indians and so won their friendship. But soon traders and other settlers moved in and took such unfair advantage of the Indians that a delegation of chiefs told them that they must leave. They severely beat the chiefs and threw them from the fort. A terrible war broke out and soon the whites were forced to give in and leave. The Indians agreed to let them leave in peace provided they left behind most of their guns and ammunition, which they agreed to do. But instead of living up to their agreement they sunk the guns in the river and ruined all the powder before the Indians could find them.

THE CHILD, ' WEENA ' As soon as the Indians learned of the perfidy of the whites they followed them with a yearning for vengeance. A few of the older chiefs tried to warn the white men but arrived too late. The mass- acre was already going on. One chief, Atta- kull-kulla noticed a young woman begging for mercy for her baby boy. He bade the warrior spare them and took them both into his household. About a year later a baby girl was born to the Indian chief and the white woman whom he had taken as his wife, now known in the tribe as Ocama. She was named Na-ca-too-la- Coo-we-na, which meant " sun shining on dew drops . This was shortened to Weena. As she grew into womanhood she became a very beautiful maiden and was a great joy to the old chief and his wife.

They stopped and spent the night bringing him back to life. When he was able to speak he told them that he was one of General Ferguson s men who had met with disaster at the Battle of King s Mountain. The hunters took him immediately to Atta-kulla-kulla, who instructed them to leave the soldier in his care. He was placed in the chieftain s wigwam and there Weena cared for his needs and brought him back to health. Gradually he regained his strength and began to take part m the games and exer- cises of the young men, as well as the hunting and fishing expeditions.

JUNIORS 25 s N A P s H O T S A GLIMPSE INTO THE FUTURE In the near future students of Tennessee Wes- leyan v ill enjoy tfie privilege of a modern collese library because of tfie generosity and kindness of Mrs. Henry M. Pfeiffer. It is to be called the Mer- ner-Pfeiffer Library and is being made possible by Mrs. Pfeiffer s donation of one hundred thousand dollars, seventy five thousand of which ill go into the erection of the library. In order to receive the gift her money is being matched by an e qual amount from other friends of the college. We are glad to announce that this goal is now within sight. The architect s sketch below was made some time ago by Mr. O. C. Poundstone from Atlanta, Ga., and includes the features desired in the building. It will truly be a great asset to the college and will permit the use of the present library as much-needed laboratories and class looms. Mr. and Mrs. hHenry Pfeiffer 28 CONNESTOGA IS STABBED FROM BEHIND By the time the youns man was able to sit up he and Weena were deeply in love. e became a favorite amon3 the tribe and soon Atta-kulla-kulla consented to the marriage of Weena and the young man, whom the tribe took in and named Con-e- sto-ga, " the Oak. " All was well until one day on a hunting trip. Connestoga and a companion were stationed at a pass early in the morning to stop the deer which the others were driving their way. Suddenly while the young man was in a crouching position an Indian warrior sprang out from behind a tree and plunged a knife down into Connestoga ' s neck. It was a jealous rival who had wanted Weena for himself. ORGANIZATIONS 19 40 STUDENT COUNCIL The Student Council is the governing body of the student organization.

Uttering the words " Weena — my — love — how — can — I — leave — you, — God — help , he closed his eyes. In despair Weena, draw- ing the knife from his neck said, " I cannot, I will not live without him " , and plunged the weapon into her heart, hier body fell across his and in a convulsive throb their spirits departed. The old chief was grieved beyond words. But before the earth covering was applied, he placed in Connestoga ' s hand an acorn and in Weena ' s a hackberry — following an ancient tribal custom, whose full significance symbolizes to us the undying love and devotion which characterized their lives. The two trees are to be found today just north of Ritter on the college campus. ATHLETICS I 19 4 Captain Newell " Red " ' Irwin Coach Hooper Eblen Captain-elect Dick LaFrance FOOTBALL For the eighth consecutive year the Tennessee Wesleyan Bulldogs remain supreme in Southeastern Junior College football. This marked Coach hHooper Eblen s first year at the helm of the Bulldog machine, and he came through superbly, with his squad compiling a record of 7 victories and 2 losses against high class opposition. Georgia Military College and the University of Tennessee Freshmen were the only victors over Wesleyan while the Bulldogs gained decisions over Snead, Hiwassee, Maryville, Bluefield, Tennessee Junior, South Georgia, and Middle Georgia. Especially sweet were the triumphs over FHiwassee and Maryville, both old Wesleyan rivals. The leadership of Captain " Red " Irwin is to be applauded; he was a true leader. The atti- tude of the squad throughout the year is especially orthy of commendation, few unsports- manlike actions being observed. The same type of work is expected next year under the leadership of Captain-elect Dick LaFrance. It may be put on record that the 1939 Tennessee Wesleyan football season was a success in every way. 46 NOCATULA ■ ;fi " |f-:-r %p; ' fr ' Front row: Lens, Mcl dmpbell, Udrner, N.

Not pictured — Orinda Wood, Ruth Crowder BASKETBALL GIRLS Due to the fact that there was no girls league in the Southeastern Junior Association, the Wesleyanettes did not have a real chance to show their strong fighting abilities. Wood and Crowder, two sharpshooting forwards, led the offense, and accounted for many of the Wesleyan points. The defense was set around Bishop and Buttram, a couple of flashy defense players and excellent ball-handlers. Although the Wesleyan lassies did not win all their games, they did have a very successful season and are looking forward to a still better one next year. It IS hoped that a girls basketball league will be formed In the small colleges of East Ten- nessee and Southwest Virginia to provide greater Incentive for the girls. If this is ever accomplished Wesleyan v ' ill be in that league. 51 The Engravings In The SENIOR NOCATULA by Knoxville Engrdving Co.
