41750 The NOCATULA Tennessee Wesleyan College Athens, Tennessee 1965 Volume XLII w 376.05 T256a 9G5 Merrier - Pfeiffer Library Tennes ee Wesleyan College Athens, Tennessee 1 - ■ ■ 5 ' -3 ' Gi5 x The 1965 NOCATULA recognizes Mrs. Claryse D. Myers Mrs. Myers A woman who for many years has been a symbol of achievement at Tennessee Wesley an College is Mrs. Claryse D. Myers. Her accomplish- ments have been applauded on previous occasions; we would like to rec- ognize them again. Mrs. Myers was born in Dawson, Texas. She remained in Texas to earn her baccalaureate degree at Texas State College for Women. She moved to Tennessee, where she was awarded her master ' s degree by George Pea- body College in Nashville. After teaching English at Chicago Training School, she came to Tennessee Wesleyan as an instructor in English, and with the exception of one year, has been associated with the college since 1934. Since Mrs. Myers became head librarian of Merner-Pfeiffer Library in 1951 , the library has become a place of increasingly intense intellectual excitement. Ten years ago it housed classrooms as well as book rooms; moreover, its periodicals collection was crowded into spaces among refer- ence works in the North Reading Room. Today the classrooms are gone; the library is completely a library— where, since the summer of 1962, there has been a room devoted exclusively to periodicals. The librarian who has guided these changes is a teacher and adminis- trator totally dedicated to her work. She has constantly looked for ways and means to make the library operate more efficiently. These have ranged from such small, but very necessary, things as insisting that all cards be kept precisely in order and that each of the countless book lists from publishers be thoroughly checked, to such unselfish efforts as visit- ing many other libraries during her vacations to seek neiu methods for improving the library of Tennessee Wesleyan. Her influence has ex- tended beyond the library to the enthusiastic promotion of everything which would sharpen the rational and cultural perception of students. However, Mrs. Myers ' greatest contribution to the improvement of the library has been her constant attitude of courage when solving the prob- lems which arise in a growing college. She has patiently directed her assist- ants in the difficult task of improving the library to its present serviceability. And so, in appreciation of her years of service to Merner-Pfeiffer Library; her untiring interest in the students of this college; her devotion to that which Tennessee Wesleyan has been; her work for that which it is; and her dreams of that which it can become; we, the senior class of 1965, dedicate this NOCATULA TO Mrs. Claryse D. Myers MERNER PFEIFFER LIBRARY MERNER PFEIFFER LIBRARY The intellectual hub of the Tennessee Wesleyan Campus is the Merner- Pfeiffer Library, whose operations and growth have been directed most recently by Mrs. Claryse D. Myers, who retires this year as Head Librarian after thirty years of dedicated service to the College. A gift of Mrs. Henry Pfeiffer of New York City, the Library was built in 1 940-1941. The cornerstone was laid in November, 1941, and the formal dedication was held on November 5, 1941, with Bishop Paul B. Kern, Mrs. Pfeiffer, and Governor Prentice Cooper par- ticipating. Under Mrs. Myers ' careful supervision, Merner-Pfeiffer Library has attained a high professional standard of operations and has greatly expanded its holdings. The building has spacious reading rooms, fireproof stack areas with shelving for 30,000 volumes, study carrells, offices, and special workrooms. Visitors and examiners for educational associations have consistently given the Library excellent and superior ratings. Enjoying a sunny Fall day on the library steps are (left to right) Jim Murrian, Kathy Oates, Debbie Adams, Gene Sledge, and Roy Sewell. Pictured below are, left, Linda Fowler and, right, Emma Martin. RITTER HALL Chatting before class-time at Ritter Hall are (left to right) Roy DeLotelle, David Hnrd, John Beller, and George McGrew. Built in 1891 to honor the memory of Elizabeth Ritter, Ritter Hall is one of the beautiful older buildings which connects a growing Tennessee Wesleyan with its past. Once owned and operated by the Woman ' s Division of the Board of Missions of the Methodist Church, Ritter Hall was a gift to the College, under the auspices of the Woman ' s Society of Christian Service. A dormitory for women until 1962, it is now a dormitory for men on the south side and women on the north, and houses offices for the Business and Education Departments and their classrooms. It was deeded to the College in 1963 by the W.S.C.S. ■ imjk MMMM £» R HHnBBSH BEENE TENNIS CENTER The brisk days of autumn and sunny days of spring both bring athlet- ically-minded students and faculty of Tennessee Wesleyan en masse to the Beene Tenni s Center ' s excellent facilities. Dinah Dean (left) and Debbie Pollard appear for a practice session at the Center, which was made pos- sible by the donation of Mr. Jones C. Beene, III and was constructed in the Fall of 1962. Honoring the memory of Jones C. Beene, Jr., the College ' s first football coach, the center has three courts available to TWC students, TWC faculty, and to members of the Athens Tennis Club. FOWLER HALL The stately entrance to the Lucy Hornsby Fowler Residence Hall for Women expresses the dignity of the Colonial architecture to be seen in many of the buildings on the Tennessee Wesleyan College campus. Leaving for classes from Fowler Residence Hall, which houses 128 female students, are (front, left to right) Lana Mynatt and Nan Hughes, and (back, left to right) Ann Waller, Norman Frazier, and Debbie Adams. Constructed in 1962 at a cost of $520,646, the residence hall commemorates Lucy Hornsby Fowler, and through her the traditional ties between the Fowler and Hornsby families and TWC. Major James Hornsby, the father of Lucy Hornsby Fowler, was an original incorporator of Tennessee Wesleyan; her husband, General James A. Fowler, was associated with the college as stu- dent, professor, trustee, and president of the Board of Trustees. The hall includes two apartments for resident supervisors, a formal lounge, two study lounges, and a recreational lounge. SHERMAN FINE ARTS COLLEGE CENTER The cultural center of the Tennessee Wesleyan College campus is the Sherman Fine Arts College Center, memorializing Mrs. Laura T. Sherman. Facilities for the Department of Music and the TWC Choir are located in the East wing of the building, while the center is occupied by the large dining hall, a private dining hall for faculty and guests, and a student lounge. The West wing houses a soda shop, book store, post office, a day students ' lounge, student publica- tion offices, the chaplain ' s office, and a small prayer chapel. The center was a gift to the College from the Holston Conference Expansion Crusade, interested friends and foundations, and Mr. Tom Sherman, an Athens businessman who is an honorary member of the TWC Board of Trus- tees. Gathered before the dining hall entrance are (left to right) Paul Reeverts, Relus Fleming, Doug Smith, Lee Quillian, Allen Dennis, Judy Johnson, and Michael Gross.

Begun by the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, McMinn Lodge No. 54, the institution was started with the name of Athens Female College in 1854. By the invitation of its trustees in 1857, the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, responded by providing addition- al financial support. After the sum of $2,000 was raised, Old College Building was completed at a cost of about $5,500. Two more acres of land were obtained, and Methodist sponsorship of the College was begun. During the War Between the States, Old Col- lege was used as a hospital for wounded troops. But despite the interruptions of the Civil War, the College had become a coeducational institu- tion in a decade with 52 men and 34 women stu- dents. Others were enrolled in the Preparatory Department. Mellowed with time, Old College is main- tained in faultless condition, and continues to serve the classroom needs of Tennessee Wesleyan College. Its beautifully-spacious porch is a fami- liar meeting place for students chatting about their day ' s activities. 11 Ralph W.

The Convention, directed by the Social Science Department and Wesleyan ' s Student Government, had as its National Chairman, Rick Myers, with chairmen and delegates repre- senting each state in the Union. The Convention opened with Representative William Brock (R.-Tenn.) introducing the distinguished Senator from Colorado, Peter Dominick. All of the formalities and demonstrations of a National Convention were a part of the mock convention. When the campaigning was completed and the votes counted, Senator Barry Goldwater (R.-Ariz.) was selected as the Presiden- tial nominee and his running mate for the Vice-Presidency was Governor George Romney from Michigan.

MAY DANCE COURT The college cafeteria was transformed for an evening into a lovely setting for the annual May Dance. Candidates for the honor of May Queen were selected by their respective classes, and these girls, with their escorts, made up the May Court.

The two runners-up, Jean Burton and Sue Ella Hankins, also seniors, were selected as her Maids of Honor. The Queen and Maids of Honor were chosen by a vote of the Student Body.

With appearances in high schools, churches, and other colleges, the choir, under the vivid direction of Mr. Andrew Harper, has further extended its growing reputation. Beginning with the fall quarter, the choir opened its doors to nearly thirty new members, and total member- ship exceeded seventy voices. Preparation for a winter concert was begun immediately with such numbers as " The Night Before Christmas, " " Gloria, " a portion of the Christmas section of Handel ' s " Messiah, " and the " Fantasia on Christmas Carols. " The choir returned from Christmas holidays ready to whip a winter and early spring tour into shape. The highlight of the winter quarter was a trip to Wheat Street Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia, on February 13-14. A tour followed in the break between winter and spring quarters. The choir traveled principally in the southern end of the conference this year, singing in churches and high schools around the Chattanooga area. The annual Spring Show took all the efforts of each member, and opening night of " The Music Man " showed the reward of many hours of practice. The production was a great success, and another hit was chalked up for the choir.

WESLEYAN DEBATE TEAM The 1964-65 academic year marked another first for the Tennessee Wesleyan debate squad as they became bona fide participants in Pi Kappa Delta intercollegiate com- petition. Wesleyan is proud of its Tennessee Iota Chapter. The varsity squad closed out the last season by win- ning first place in extemporaneous speaking in the South- east Province Tournament. This year we had four re- turning varsity debaters: Allen Dennis, who has debated four years for our team, and is president of Pi Kappa Delta; Haney Howell, vice-president; Frances Freestone, secretary; and Rick Myers, recorder. Each of these three has debated for two years. The novice team proved to be one of the best in the state as they took honors in the Carson-Newman Invita- tional and won second place at the Middle Tennessee State Novice Tournament. The novice team included Curtis Sims, who has also debated varsity this year, Ann Pratt, Rachel Edds, Margaret Edds, David Stapley, Char- lotte McManus, Judy Johnson, Jim Gillespie, Bill Ketchersid, and Fred MacArthur. The varsity squad entered cross-examination competi- tion for the first time this year. They used this form of debate before civic clubs in Athens and also in an assem- bly program last January, and competed at Murray State College in Murray, Kentucky. This has been a climactic year in Wesleyan ' s forensic program. 70 (Top to bottom) Mr. William Yates, Rick Myers, Haney Howell, Allen Dennis, Frances Freestone.

PHI SIGMA KAPPA The first major national fraternity installed on the cam- pus of Tennessee Wesleyan College, Phi Sigma Kappa, combines the tradition of a well established national fraternity with the sincere friendliness and vigorous ac- tivity of a thriving young group. As the Phi Sig brothers cheered their intramural teams to victory, the chapter won the campus championships in both football (6-0) and volleyball (5-0) this fall. Social activities included a dance honoring new pledges, the an- nual Thanksgiving banquet, and a Faculty Tea honoring our beautiful Moonlight Girl, Miss Lana Mynatt. Civic activities included a " Toys for Tots " drive at Christmas. Later activities during the year included a Founders ' Day Banquet, when the chapter gathered with its alumni, and the annual formal banquet and dance, the Carnation Ball. Phi Sigma Kappa, one of the older national college fraternities, was founded on March 15, 1873, at Massachu- setts State College in Amherst, Massachusetts. Conservative in its policies of growth, the Fraternity now has seventy- eight chapters over the United States, with 35,000 living members. Omicron Tetarton Chapter was initiated into this national organization on December 5, 1959. The Phi Sig chapter at Tennessee Wesleyan is striving to create its own tradition of a strongly united brotherhood which is friendly to all students and campus groups, and to achieve a balanced emphasis on scholarship, social activi- ties, and sports. Omicron Tetarton also maintains close ties with the complex of Phi Sigma Kappa chapters in East Tennessee, located at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, and at East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, Tennessee. This interchange adds much in fun and convenience to the cosmopolitan outlook which Phi Sigma Kappa seeks to cultivate. It is also a prime objective of the chapter to contribute to the climate of high academic standards and personal friendliness so re- markable on the campus of Tennessee Wesleyan College. Faculty co-advisors are Dr. Mark Schafer, Chairman of the College ' s Division of Social Sciences, and Dr. Harry Merrill, III, Chairman of the Humanities Division and the Department of English. 84 Phi Sigs and dates enjoy barbecue on the patio. «; (below) Phi Sigma Kappa Officers: (left to right) David Hurd, Sen- tinel; Norman Frazier, Treasurer; Relus Fleming, President; John Lee.

PI KAPPA PHI April 17, 1965, the first anniversary of the chartering of the Beta Psi Chapter of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity, marked the end of one of the most decisive years for the Gold and White on the Tennessee Wesleyan College Campus. The brothers of Beta Psi are proud to be a part of a great, grow- ing fraternity, founded December 10, 1904, at Charleston College, South Carolina, now encompassing 53 chapters. The Fall of 1964 found a scrappy Pi Kappa Phi football team battling to a second-place tie. The annual pancake supper was, as usual, packed full of hungry students eager to consume Burkett ' s delicious Pi Kapp flapjacks. Pi Kapps ascended to various positions of campus leader- ship during this decisive year: Joe Eldridge, Outstanding Freshman Award; Toll Coulter and David Keebler served as IFC officers; Harry Howard became Student Christian Association President; Joe Eldridge served his second term as Class Representative on the Student Government; Toll Coulter, Dick Burdette, and Don Forshay were Ambassa- dors. In these and many other ways, Pi Kapps answered the challenge to help make Tennessee Wesleyan one of the lead- ing small colleges in the South. Indeed, no flower that grows is like our Rose, Miss Suz- anne Smith, of Knoxville, Tennessee. Her grace and charm have added immeasurably to the spirit of the Pi Kapp house. She is assisted by her court: Misses Judy Bangs, Judy Jones, and Jill Rogers. The annual Planning Retreat was held February 19-21, in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Despite snow and plenty to do, much was accomplished in the way of strategy formulation for the coming year. Pi Kappa Phi is proud to be the sponsor of Tennessee Wesleyan ' s first campus-wide All-Sing. Competitors will come from all Greek and independent groups, and trophies will be given for large and small groups. We believe this All-Sing will become a vital and highly anticipated part of campus activities. The brothers of Beta Psi are glad to be a part of an expanding fraternity system, here and elsewhere, for we, along with the other two fraternities and three sororities on campus, be- lieve in the ideals of the early Greek societies. The spirit of Pi Kappa Phi can truly be summed up in the words: " Nothing shall tear us asunder.

SIGMA PHI EPSILON The Brotherhood of Sigma Phi Epsilon returned to school this fall with spirit. This spirit was given a boost when it was learned that they had received the Scholar- ship Trophy for having the highest accumulative average among fraternities for 1963-64. Rick Myers ably led the Student Government as Presi- dent of the Student Body, and Lynn Monday was elected Treasurer of the Student Government. Other Government officers were: Hugh Walker, Senior Boy Representative; Bill Climer, Junior Vice-President; Bill Lockerby, Sopho- more President; and Tim Oliver, Freshman Boy Repre- sentative. Rick Myers was selected to Who ' s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges; Bill Small- ing was selected Alpha Xi Delta Dream Man; and Hugh Walker was selected by the Student Body as Mr. T. W. C. This year, on the social agenda, we led off with our Annual Beatnik Party where the Pledges selected Miss Elaine Lewin as Pledge Princess. At Christmas we played Santa to a group of underprivileged children of Athens at our annual Christmas Party. Winter Quarter we honored Miss Harri Kay Brooks, our sweetheart, at the annual Sweetheart Dance. Also honored were the Queens of Hearts: Misses Kay Murray, Barbara Harrison, Susan Blackburn, and Lynne Woods. Spring quarter brought our Spring Banquet and Awards Night, which is the highlight of the year for the brothers of Sigma Phi Epsilon. 88 Christmas Party for underprivileged children, (above) Harri Kay Brooks, Sweetheart of the Golden Heart, (right) Sigma Phi Epsilon Officers: (seated) Hugh Walker, Historian; Larry Huffman, Vice-President; (standing) Lynn Monday, Secretary; Bill Smalling, President; Bill Aiken, Treasurer. 89 GREEK WEEKEND 1964 Norman Jackson receiving trophy for Phi Sigma Kappa. Pi Kappa Phi discusses plans for their first place skit. Kappa Delta ' s winning skit " Graduation Night: 90 Greek Weekend, held during spring quarter, plays a tremendous role in strengthening the fraternity system at Tennessee Wesleyan College. The activities of 1964 ' s Greek Weekend began with a Friday night skit competition. From among the sororities, Kappa Delta won first place with the theme " Graduation Night. " Sigma Kappa sorority took second place. Pi Kappa Phi took first position among the frater- nities; Phi Sigma Kappa, second. Field events on Saturday included egg-tossing, sack-racing, three-legged racing, etc. for the girls. Alpha Xi Delta sorority emerged victorious as close competition prevailed. The fraternities engaged in more strenuous activities. Phi Sigma Kappa was for the second con- secutive year tops in field events. Saturday night featured a banquet and dance as a finale of a memorable weekend. Tro- phies were awarded to the winners of the earlier competitions, and Greek King and Queen were announced. Milton Mcllwain of Sigma Phi Epsilon reigned as King and Harri Kay Brooks of Alpha Xi Delta was Queen. Other nominees for Queen were: Sue Ella Hankins, Kappa Delta; Linda Buttram, Sigma Kappa. Nominees for King were: Jack Edmonds, Pi Kappa Phi; and Joe Bowden, Phi Sigma Kappa. (Left to right) Mrs. Ralph Mohney. Milton Mcllwain, Harri Kay Brooks.

PANHELLENIC COUNCIL The Panhellenic Council is the governing body of so- rority life on the Wesleyan campus, making all the rules for rushing, pledging, and initiation concerning the sororities. The activities of " Greek Week " form an important part of the work of the Council. Two dele- gates from each of the three sororities make up the Council. The president of the Panhellenic Council is elected each year from the representative delegates. INTER-FRATERNITY COUNCIL The Inter-Fraternity Council is set up to promote the fraternity system on the Wesleyan campus. The Council governs the fraternity rush rules, establishes committees for intramural athletics, and organizes the functions of " Greek Week. " Three representatives from each of the three fraternities make up the Council, with a president elected independently each year by the IFC.

Bill Johnston, Co-Captain, Senior Tommy Davis, Co-Captain, Senior BASKETBALL John Lee, Senior Lacking in height, but a bushel of hustle! That ' s the best way we can think of to describe the 1964-65 edition of the team we call the Tennessee Wes- leyan College Bulldogs. Any other team so short on height in a conference that puts a premium on the big man might have fallen into mediocrity, but not the Bulldogs. Bill Johnston, the soft-spoken senior from West Mil- ton, Ohio, absorbed a deep personal tragedy— the death of his infant son— but roared back to turn in some of the finest performances ever evidenced on the TWC boards. Even at 6 ' 5 " , Bill was often dwarfed by opposing players during the season, but always gave a good ac- count of himself. The other co-captain was the red-haired Kentuckian with the lazy gait, oF TD himself, Tommy Davis. Give him a shot and it usually ripped the netcords. The shot which never seemed to arch enough to clear the front rim, did more often than not. Larry Cunningham, Junior College transfer, also con- tributed a lion ' s share to the Bulldogs ' success. The be- spectacled Indianan, who alternated between scaring the crowd and wowing them with his daringly reckless style of play, caused Coach Cate to take more than one deep breath during the season with an unorthodox shot which somehow twisted in with the special type of " English " which only Larry knows how to apply. Freshman Ronnie Barry made a name for himself on a nationwide scale with his outstanding field goal per- centage, and always seemed to come through with a clutch goal when it was needed most. Who will ever forget his hook shot in the tight moments of the 74-71 loss to the Eagles? Doug Raymer John Saylors Roy DcLotelle David Hurd Larry Cunningham Bobbv Davis Clyde Abernathy Tommy Cain All of the team spoke loudly at times, too, as Doug Raymer, Clyde Abernathy, Roy DeLotelle, David Hurd, John Lee, and Tommy Cain all had their moments of glory during the season. Then, going to the guards, we have " Mr. Cool " himself, John Saylors. The fancy dribbler, with the deadeye from the keyhole, probably evokes more confidence from the crowd than any other member of the team when he ' s dribbling the ball. Johnny never seemed to lose the ball, and if he found himself free at the head of the circle, it was nets for the basketball. Not since Jerry Edmonds made his debut as a freshman in 1958-59 has a fresh- man had such success as the other red-haired Caneyvillian, Bobby Davis. Folks who started calling him " Tommy ' s little brother " soon found he had a name, too, and knew him well before the season was over. Bob, playmaker supreme, shooter ex- traordinary, and foul-shooter superb, played well in every phase of the game— even rebounding— and if he leaves anything to be desired as a guard, it is yet to be dis- covered. These are our boys— fellows we ' d be proud to have represent us anywhere, both for their athletic ability and for their friendliness and good example of conduct, both on the floor and off during this school year. These are twelve nice fellows. Ronnie Barry 97 TENNIS The season record for the tennis team was six won and six lost. They placed third in the V.S.A.C. Tennis Tournament.

INTRAMURALS A tournament in football, basketball, volley- ball, or softball is in progress most of the time during the season. In no other activity on campus does one find the spirit that is generated in Wesleyan ' s Intramural program. This program offers exercise and competitive sport to those individuals and groups who may or may not rate themselves as varsity or professional players. For Reference Not to be taken from this room
