C. Rice, Vice Chairman of Board of Trustees: Bishop, we present this building to be dedicated to the glory of God and the service of men. The Bishop: By what name shall this building henceforth be known? Dr. Wade Weldon, A Trustee: It shall be called the Conway Boatman Chapel. The Bishop: Beloved in the Lord, we rejoice that Gcd put it into the hearts of his people to build this house to the glory of His name. I now accept this building to be known as Conway Boatman Chapel, to dedicate it, and to set it apart for the worship of Almighty God, the education of youth, and the service of all men. Let us therefore, as we are assembled, solemnly dedicate this place to its proper and sacred uses. " :•■ ■ ■, , .;;i , V , , ,V i ! ;f4j.,- ' ' ' s ' 5 ' " ' 1 B W U ' Jg- w ' . I A. V " f? " » r 1 1 ,s , A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT Thank you, Stespean makers, for a great service rendered— a noble and difficult task well done. The 1950 Stespean chronicles in art and story a historic year in the annals of Union College. The academic year of 1949-50 stands out in Union history as epochal for at least two reasons. This year marked the completion and occupancy of the wonderfully beautiful and serviceable chapel-fine arts building. The dream and planning of many years came to realization. This has brought to the college a prestige and general confidence in a great wave of public enthusiasm never before experienced on this campus. A second event of the year contributing to the epochal record is the fine action of the Board of Trustees of Union College in setting up nine brave objectives for the college in its financial advance to be realized by 1954, the year of the great Diamond Jubilee Celebration which will worthily commemo- rate the seventy-five years of service of this college,— 1879-1954. The goal of $750,000 has been adopted for added endowment and further improvement of Union ' s buildings and equipment. A still stronger Union is thus envisioned and the Trustees and friends of the college are committed to achieve- ment of this goal. Every graduate and friend of " dear old Union " should make haste to learn the particulars of this Diamond Jubilee Advance and co-operate fully in putting over this great achievement. Dr. H. B. Smith, Dean of the College Within these pages you will find the key to a great treasure. The value of this treasure will increase as time and distance separate you from this campus. When you turn these pages you will live again some of the associations and experiences of this period. Many times you will recall priceless moments of supreme joy and happiness. In some cases you may be reminded of disappointment, misunderstanding, and even defeat. Advice and counsel will have a new meaning and may be found to contain a valuable truth now outside your grasp. All of these things will make you a stronger and a richer person, and will help you to dedicate yourself anew to those high ideals of life and service which have been held up before you daily here. Sincerely, Dean Prof. J. R. Henderson, Dean of Men, Stevenson Hall Mr. Thed E. Farra, Tye House Miss Alice R. Smith, Dean of Women, Pfe ffer Hall The 195 issue of the Stespean is a splendid example of the best co-operative effort of the Staff and Student Body of Union College, and represents many hours of con- centrated effort to produce a good publication. The Administration is proud of you, and grateful for an excellent recording of another year ' s prog- ress at Union. Best wishes, always Clifton Wilson The primary purpose of the Public Relations Office is to build good will for Union College. This office employs chiefly the following media: personal contacts, pictorial literature, direct mail, and special events. All of these media have proved effective, but little would be ac- complished if it were not for the help of the Administration, the faculty, and, most important of all, the students.

C. Sizemore, Charles Singleton, Alice Smith, Jimmie Melton, and Lloyd Spurlock as our officers. ... we were sponsored by Miss Kathleen Moore. ... we helped reorganize the A Capella Choir. . . . and held our freshman picnic at Cumberland Falls? As highly polished sophomores .... our vow was to be more serious with our books .... the Bjornstads steered our class, with Howard Allen, Bill Cox, Vihna Meyer, Keith Cox, as officers .... there was a new classroom building called the Veterans ' Building .... and the new chapel began to become a reality .... when Margaret Ann Roberts was both our Snow Queen and our Mountain Laurel Festival Representative .... Sadie Hawkins Day was born .... for we were wise in the ways of men and the world? We were the sophisticated Junior Class of Union College .... putting on a Mock Radio Show .... giving the lordly Seniors a Banquet .... finding a deeper interest in others in our class .... making some friendships and even some matches for life .... Everett Hendricks was our sponsor .... and John Lunsford, Rceda Reaser, Ruth Sncdeker, Bill Goodwin, were our class officers .... life was crazy and fun and we were really living? Our last year at Union dawned upon us and soon flew by ... . we were moved and thrilled at the chapel dedication .... the Daniel Boone Festival sent us soaring .... Pat Dickinson and Margaret Ann Roberts were elected Mr. and Miss Union .... a large part of our class left us in January .... we were the guests of honor at the Junior- Senior Banquet .... President and Mrs. Boatman entertained us at Cumberland Falls .... we began wondering about the future .... those last classes loomed over us, and we wished we could put them off .... we walked two by two down that chapel aisle .... and walked out again as graduates .... planning to scatter in all directions to answer the call of life .... but hoping we would soon be back, seeing each other? •3BEER1R2 Left to right (standing) Bill Brogan, Charles Standafer, Carolyn Carico, Dorothy Myers; (seated) Ann Dean, Miss Frances Patriate JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS Charles Standafer President Doroi by Myers Vice-President Ann Dean Secretary Carolyn Carico Treasurer Sergeant at Arms William G.

This program includes sacred choruses, madrigals, part songs, spirituals, and folk songs, ranging from the sublimity of the " Crucifixus " and Bach ' s B Minor Mass, to the humorous folk tune " Skip to My Lou, " ' which serves to illustrate the choir ' s determination to perform works representative of all phases of Choral Music.

Mr. William Hearn Reporters: Paul Woolum, Nancy Bod- enstein, Lawrence Langford, Murgy Hall, Nancy Hendricks, Lee Dolloff, Berry Wall, Russell Earl From the desk of the Editor of the Orange and Black have come reflections of all the student body, for every issue has been the work of the student minds on the campus. Certainly several of the issues led many to discuss their ideas and defend their principles. If this publication has been only a thought starter, it has done its service. Since I have had a chance to write for the paper as well as edit it, I have felt the campus life in all its force. Among our treasured memories of happy events, there surely must be a place for the Orange and Black which so carefully chronicled everything which took place. We shall think of our yesterdays in the years which lie ahead. The future seems golden to us now, but when it arrives we ' ll know that it is these college days which wear the hue of gold. Then we will know, as we cannot now know, what that thing called " S chool Spirit " really is, what our interest in serving our school really is, and what the friendship of our classmates really means. As we go forth from this campus with its beauty and its friendliness, a part of Union will go with each of us. For, as Tennyson once said, " I am a part of all that I have met. " EDITORS ' DESK Getting out a Yearbook is a major undertaking, and we have worked hard to get this 1950 Stespean ready for you, but we won ' t regret the time spent or the near nervous breakdowns if the students and faculty of Union like our book. We would never have arrived at the happy day when we went oft to the printer with the copy had it not been for the splendid cooperation of each member of the staff and the ever-ready assistance of our sponsor. The staff presents your annual with the hope that within its pages are crystallized the favorite memories of every student. I feel honored at having been given the responsibility for this publication, and wish to express heart-felt gratitude for the instantaneous response received from everyone called upon to contribute.

At every game, whether at home or away, they could be counted on to add to the color and thrill of the sport. By their own efforts they paid for all of the trips they took and bought themselves uniforms. Hours of practice without a complaint were followed by long trips in every kind of weather, and often they were most of the night getting home. All of this they did to make the team know we were behind them. " Action! We want Action! " and they gave it to us.
