I believe that the trustees, faculty, alumni, and the host of friends of Union College join me in expressing deep appreciation to the 1951-52 STESPEAN staff for the splendid job they have done in the publication of this year ' s STESPEAN. H is not easy for everyone who picks up a STESPEAN and drinks with pleasure from its inspiring pages to appreciate the hard work and up and down struggles of the STESPEAN makers in producing this publication. Several important services are rendered through the publication of the STESPEAN. First, it is a genuine service to this college in presenting to the public a revealing in- side artistic and pictorial story of the ongoing of the year ' s college life on the campus. A second important service of the STESPEAN is in providing a high grade educational experience for the large number of students who participate in the editing and publishing of the STESPEAN. There are many sorts of talent in demand in this joint task. The talent of writing, photography, psychology of publicity, art, organization of working force, teamwork in a common task, and some others are in demand in the creation of such a publication. A third service is the production of valuable re- source material in the history of the college. As the STESPEAN accumulates year after year, within their pages are concealed in picture and story facts which prove so very valuable to the historian of the college in all time to come. A fourth service of the annual is to preserve in publication form the precious experiences of college life treasured by each student. It is a memoir of happy days. C. BOATMAN.

" Hedda Gabler " is the story of a cruel, ruthless woman who does all in her power to advance herself. Hedda hates her husband, George Tesman (whom she married for position), and completely disregards everyone ' s feelings. Eventually, it comes to light that Hedda has en- gaged in serious flirtations with all male members of the cast. She leads Eilert Lovborg to commit suicide, thus ruining the life of her pretended girlhood friend, Thea Elvsted; Judge Brack suspects Hedda of her treacherous deed. Things grad- ually pile up and when Hedda discovers she is pregnant, she shoots herself. The cast was as follows: Berta, the Tesman ' s maid — Ruth Owen; Miss Julie Tesman, George Tesman ' s Aunt — Rose Mary Randall; George Tesman — Jack Young; Hedda Gabler, Tesman ' s wife — Mary Alice Elrod; Thea Elvsted, Hedda ' s girlhood chum — Olive Blair; Judge Brack, a friend of the family — Charles Gilley; and Eilert Lovborg — Robert Lewis.

The Freshman Orientation Committee is responsible for planning activities for the incoming freshmen to help them to get acquainted with the campus, the community, the upper-classmen, and each other. This committee did a very excellent job this year in planning a picnic, several parties, and banquet which all enjoyed. 47 Seated (left to right): Mildred Taylor, Margaret Henderson, Rosemary Randall, Golda Winders, Jackie Combs.

It touches life at all points and students who have a deep interest in writing will find occasion to use a diversified store of knowledge. Our college newspaper repre- sents the voice of the student body. Everyone likes to read about them- selves, persons they know, or per- sons of whom they have heard; the Orange and Black " likes to and does write about them. cHltp ($rattw and Hark kmttln Ikt Present Final mbrr ' (mint Irtish Series W- .

Our theme this year is in keeping with the idea of continuous progress. " We take up the task eter- nal, and the burden and the lesson ... All the past we leave behind, we debouch upon a newer mightier world, varied world, Fresh and Strong the world we seize, world of labor and the march . . , " (Whitman). We wish to thank the entire STESPEAN Staff for the work accomplished. This has taken much cooperation and without each member the STESPEAN could not be pub- lished. Dean Cadle has been a great help to us as our faculty sponsor — so many thanks to him and all other individuals who have helped with the work. We hope you enjoy the STESPEAN now and for years to come. BETTY and J. R. Seated, (left to right): Kathleen Humfleet, J. R. Ward, Betty Harrod, Anna Lee Garland.

It is a time when the Cherokees come in friendship to visit their Kentucky friends. Everyone dresses in the costume of this period. The festival is concluded by a large parade consisting of covered wagons and people dressed typical of the pioneers of Kentucky. This is a tradition which everyone welcomes. That day of days comes once a year The day when the fellas dread Those fateful words " I caught you dear ' They claim they ' re better off dead. SADIE HAWKINS HOUSE November I was a great event — the Stephenson Hall and Tye House boys held open House. The real beginning of the festivities was early in the morning when dust mops and brooms started removing dirt which had accumulated over the months. The official beginning, however, was when the girls invaded the rooms, inspecting and eating. The final came at the Little Theatre where a program was enjoyed by all. Open House at the girls ' dorm fell on February 15, and was a gala affair. Alice Miller was selected Queen of Hearts. She chose David Hamilton for her King. The coronation took place in the parlor which was gayly decorated with huge red and white hearts. Refreshments were then served. A program, which gave a few chuckles, was held at the Little Theater in honor of the king and queen. This concluded the evening ' s events. 1 ' » QUEEN ROBERTA YEATON MARGIE TODD Senior representative OLIVE BLAIR Junior representative BASKETBALL QUEEN The annual Homecoming Game is one of Union ' s big events of the year.

They won I 5 games while losing 7 and had a 75.8 points per game average. The Bulldogs were runners-up in the K.I.A.C. Tour- nament, losing to Kentucky Wesleyan after defeating Centre and Transylvania in the opening games. In the S.M.A.C. Tournament, Union finished second once again as they dropped Milligan and Emory-Henry in the opening round. In the finals the Bulldogs lost to East Tennessee State by a 56 to 47 score. The Bulldogs had an exceptional season on their own hardwood. They won all ten of their home games eas- ily, twice breaking last year ' s scoring record of 105 LANHAM BRUNES SWIM THE BASKETBALL Un Un Jr Un Ur Un Ur Un Un Un Jr on 79 on 55 on 77 on 69 on 64 on 62 on 56 on 82 on 84 on 92 on 84 SCHEDULE Morehead 86 Marshall 95 Berea 58 Lincoln Memorial 73 East Tennessee State 66 Emory-Henry 59 High Point 59 Transylvania 41 Tusculum 79 Centre 79 Lincoln Memorial 60 SERGEANT points, once against Carson-Newman when they set a new record of I 12 points and later against Tusculum when they netted 109 points.

These build- ings are where the students, who were pioneers of the old Union, lived, played and were educated. Over the years Union has progressed both spiritually and materially. We are a part of this progress and are, ourselves, pioneers of the present Union College. The Alumni Association put its best toot forward, and put on the big- gest Homecoming in the history of the college. Supt. Bill Slusher ' 31, of the Bell County Schools, was the guest speaker of the Homecoming Banquet. The Alumni filled the dining room and filled the gymnasium to the rafters to see the Bulldogs beat Morehead 80-68. With such a successful response to this year ' s Homecoming the Alumni Association will become stronger and grow to new heights. 85 February 16th marked the long-awaited opening of the Student Center and Snack Bar. The building is fully equipped to satisfy the culinary tastes of the students as well as to provide a place to meet and loaf. Returning graduates who visited the campus for Homecoming on this date were pleased to see what an attractive place has been provided for the convenience of present and future students. Located at the rear of the campus, the Snack Bar is easily accessible to everyone and is proving to be a popular spot. FIRST CUSTOMER ! » ' x 1 ' . FATS FIRST SUND CLASS HISTORY We wish to pay one last tribute to this year ' s gradu- ating class. Some members of this class have been to- gether for all four years while others have joined along the way. Here is the history of the 1952 Seniors as given to us by Edward Taylor and Don Welch: The Class of 1952 should go down in the history of Union College as one of the most heroic the school has ever seen. Several days after we arrived on Campus the " official reception committee " began its unofficial recepting. We received the prefix " rat " to our names and entered upon the last Rat Week of Union College with much pomp and ceremony. Like monks entering a monastery, the male members of our class were adorned with short — very short — haircuts. John Wolfenden sat in a tree by the administration building for two days sing- ing hymns, but the most uncomfortable of all was Ellen Grove. She had to wear her skirt upside down and Inside out and because the band of the skirl was so tight she couldn ' t run and didn ' t catch Big Ed Gross until the week was almost over. Ask Don Duff sometime how he managed to sleep on a shelf in the closet of room I 10 In Stevenson Hall so the upperclassmen couldn ' t find him. As is customary, the school was Interested In our pos- sibilities and gave us many long standarized tests, among them the Kruder Preference Test. The school was amazed when Jenny Lou Spurlock had to change her major from music — the test results indicated that Jenny Lou should become a mechanic and she didn ' t want to spend her entire life repairing her uke. Our officers for the first year were as follows: Presi- dent, Ted Ray Hammond; Vice-President, " Red " Archer; Secretary-Treasurer, Jean Strong, and sponsor, Dr. McKee- han. The choir made an extensive tour to Chicago that year and sang before the State Legislature in Frankfort. The most entertaining thing we found on campus was the construction of the new Chapel Fine Arts Building. The building was as high as the wlndowsill when we ar- rived. Whenever one became bored studying, he could always watch construction awhile. Our Sophomore year was a busy one. We had all kinds of important people around. The Chapel was finished and was dedicated and named the Conway Boatman Chapel. The Governor of Kentucky and Bishop Watkins were on hand for that event. The Dr. Thomas Walker Bl-centennial was held in April of that year and Vice Pres- ident Barkley came to Union College to speak. That September, Senior House, Girls Hall, was re- named Tye House and eighteen boys took the place of the eighteen girls it formerly housed. Dr. Gnse, formerly head of the Education Department, who lived next door to Tye House, gave up trying to sleep and moved to Ten- nessee the same year. The choir went on tour to Miami, Florida. Many of us who remained at school still would like to know what went on at Macon, Georgia. When we returned In the Fall of 1950, we found a new building on the campus — the laundry house. We elected Jack Ketcham, a well known local politician as our class president. (A very good choice, too). Realizing that we had to make money to feed the Seniors, we embarked on two main projects. First, we presented " The Faculty Concert. " In this presentation, those members of the faculty with talent (and nerve) presented a very delightful evening of enter- tainment. The artists participating could be divided into three classes: (I) Those who were talented; (2) Those who weren ' t and admitted it; (3) Dean Smith. The show was a huge success. Since the faculty acting as students made such a big hit, we decided that the students acting as faculty mem- bers wouldn ' t be bad either. So we presented a take-off on the faculty called " The Faculty at Home " In which several of the students acted out the part of faculty members and their families. What a Riot! Thus we made some more money. Then we soaked each member of the class a dollar just for the privilege of belonging to such a fine class. We finally had enough money to entertain the seniors at a lavish banquet (In the dining hall?) from soup to nuts. Speaking of Nuts, Bert Cox was on the program. We finished our Junior year with more money than any other Junior class in the history of the school. A member of our class, Margie Todd, was elected snow queen this year. September, 1951 . Here we dre ready to embark on the shortest year In our college career. Jack Ketcham had done such a good job as president when we were juniors, we just decided to keep him for another term. Once again, we soaked the members for money so we could present a gift to the school. Seven members of our class were elected to represent the college in the publication " Who ' s Who in American Colleges and Universities. " They were: Mary Alice Elrod, Betty Harrod, Goh Kong Oo, Wayne Moody, Stuart Blauw, Ed Taylor and Don We!ch. We elected Betty Bow- man and Don Welch as Miss and Mister Union, respec- tively. In the spring we planted a tree in honor of Dr. Karl Bleyl, a former member of Union ' s faculty and our spon- sor in our Junior year. We also presented a gift to the college. During this year, we experienced the opening of a temporary student center, and also heard plans for a new and much needed gymnasium. The Old Gym will be converted into a Student Union building If plans don ' t change. (Who can tell what goes through the mind of a college president?) Anyway we finished the year in flying colors, and each member of the class can say that they belonged to the largest and most outstanding class ever to graduate from Union College.
