Throughout this year-book, you will find excerpts from your Alma Mater. We would ask you to remember, not only for this year, but for the many years to come, the many things for which our school song stands. It will represent for you not only the campus and build- ings that are Union College, but the ideals and knowledge you gained — the friend- ships and laughter you shared — the new ideas you discovered and the old concepts that you either discarded or came to hold more dear — the moments of inspiration and some of the happiest times you knew. Remember 1952-1953! Remember Union! DEDICATION We, the Stespean Staff, dedicate the 1953 Stespean to the Seniors of Union College. It is not to the Class of 1953 alone that we dedicate this book, but to each graduate of the past and to each future graduate who will receive his diploma and who will carry with him throughout his life many memories of Union College. Each page of the 1953 Stespean is dedicated to you, Seniors of Union College. fyi%t cvit movttf z Standi owi ' Ptatee fan gnattct old m M tt l L, coMeye dean, toad M ?f4s ev i, fat fo eai. [STRAR ■- t € foenyt6 a£ frtecefrfo fauy t u . . . ADMINISTRATION ,0 PRESIDENT ' S MESSAGE STESPEAN The work of the Stespean staff is one of the most significant activities at Union College. Year after year the Stespean brings a fresh new message in art, in photographs and in message. The result is the binding of the student body closer together and the publicity of the College in its public relations. In fact, the Stespean is a diary of the life and on- going of Union College for the college year. It becomes, therefore, for all students, faculty, alumni and possessing friends, a memoir of college days. This is written, of course, before the current year ' s issue of the Stespean comes from the press. Judging from the high quality of the student members and visible signs and their industry and loyalty to respon- sibility in producing this issue, it is my anticipation that when any of us pick up the new edition and leaf through it in our first introduction, we will heartily say " Well done Stespean staff and thank you, very, very much. " The makers of the Stespean should thrill with the high sense of satisfaction in their work through the knowledge that they are doing some- thing abundantly worthwhile for themselves, their fellow students and for Union College. It is a personal pleasure to write these few words of appreciation and anticipation concerning the 1952-53 Stespean. C. BOATMAN, President DR. H. B. SMITH, Dean Loyalty to high ideals and to sound principles consistently prevails among those who possess integrity and are motivated by a lofty purpose. I commend to you an un- failing devotion to your Alma Mater and to the precepts for which it stands. Among the rewards for such a devotion you will find sustaining strength and increased happiness. Beware of expediency as a basis of operation in any area of life. An act of expe- diency violates a timeless principle and can lead only toward misunderstanding, un- happiness, and eventual defeat. I beg of you to consistently report by both word and deed that which you conceive to be right. These are some of the signposts along the pathway to victorious living. H. B.

We elected Paul Easterling, Bobby Smith, Tommy Mitchell, and " Mop " Livingston as our officers. Our sponsor was Miss Marjorie Donnell. We were present for the new chapel dedication and were the first group to use it. We participated in the Boone Festival, whose author was Dr. Karl Bleyl .... The choir took its memorable trip to Florida that year .... A great honor was ours also — Miss " Pat " Parsons, one of our class, was named the Mountain Laurel Queen .... As Sophomores .... we elected Tommy Mitchell, Max Pinkerton, Herman Bays, and Jimmie Beth Lewellen as officers .... Our sponsor was Mr. Phillip Peters .... The Science Club Banquet for which we became famous .... with rattle snake meat, a mystery dish of white rat and blue grass plus .... Our class topped all the Sadie Hawkins days with a successful party .... The faculty gave a musical concert with " Miss Sutphen as ' The Thing ' " . . . . Bobby Smith was elected basketball queen .... also a take-off was given on the faculty which was hilarious .... Our Junior class .... we gave a banquet for the Seniors with high compliments from Dr. Boatman and many others .... ' as the most enjoyable banquet thus far ' . . . . one of our class, Dave Jones with his originality began a variety show which attracted many students to our campus. This year, one whose fighting spirit brought us through many basketball games left us ... . We elected Keith Hodgin, Bill Webb, Olive Blair, and Ruth Poe as officers .... Mr. Laite was our sponsor. As dignified Seniors .... Olive Blair and Charles " Red " Dugan were elected Mr. and Miss Union .... Our class officers were Charles Dugan, Keith Hodgin, Richard Davis, and Ruth Poe .... Again Mr. Laite was voted our sponsor .... Several of our class were lost to marriages, the Korean war effort, and mid-semester graduation, but we sailed through the Commencement exercises with one of the largest classes ever to graduate from Union College .... With great reluctance we left — each to his own fate — with the fondest of memories and high hopes for the future. RUTH POE Left to nghl HAROLD COLE, DR.

BASKETBALL The Union College Bulldogs completed their 1952-53 season with a better than average seasonal record. Their record for the season consisted of 15 victories as compared to 9 defeats. The Bulldogs were also one of the state ' s top offensive teams with a total of 1,993 points for an average of 83.05 points per game. The Bulldogs continued to dominate their own hardwood this year as they won eleven victories with only one defeat. On the road they were not as effective as they turned in only four victories and eight defeats. At home, however, they were particularly good; reaching over the ninety mark six times and twice passing the century mark. Their first score to exceed 100 came against EMORY HENRY when they tallied 104 points. They later repeated their performance by getting the same total against CARSON-NEWMAN. Coach Beattie will lose only two men this season by graduation, guard Keith Hodgin and forward Earl Vernon Evans. Returning from this season ' s squad will be Harold Cole, Jack Bruner, Ernest Trosper, Bob Koehler, W. C. Sergeant, Glen Lehew, Lefty Solomon, and others with whom Coach Beattie will form a nucleus for next year ' s squad. Baseball and track will take the picture with coming of spring and furnish the Bulldogs with new challenges for their fine teams.

The frosh team played a schedule of Junior colleges, high schools, and independent basketball teams with quite a bit of success. This year ' s freshman club may be the proving ground for Bulldog stars of the future. Members of this year ' s squad were: Rod Neeley, Jim Walters, Gene Combs, Walter Dick, Bill Hutton, Fred Parsons, Larry Wooden, Willie Abner and a few other frosh who played from time to time. Each member of the squad contributed greatly to the success and they each developed along the road to varsity competition. The frosh played a total of 16 games this season against some fine competition and completed their season with a .500 mark, winning eight and losing eight.

GRADUATING SENIORS Two members, Keith Hodgin and Earl Vernon Evans, of the varsity Bulldogs will be lost to the club through the medium of graduation. Keith Hodgin, our New Castle, Indiana product, is captain of the 1952-53 Bulldogs and has consistently led the team. Keith is a great competitor and is always in the leading scorers column for the season. He is an excellent floor man and has been the playmaker for the squad this season. An outstanding member of the Bulldog squad for four years he has earned a position on both the All KIAC and SMAC teams. Keith is also an outstanding member of the track and baseball teams. Earl Vernon Evans, of Louisville, Kentucky, has been one of the better members of the Bulldog squad. He is a strong, hard-fighting competitor with a great will to win. He is possessed of great ball-handling ability and is able to snag his share of rebounds. He is one of our finest team players and is a valuable asset to any team. Earl is the type of player who takes things as they come without much display of emotion and calmly carries out his hardwood assignments. oyai m a td dauy teib evet. 74 e cwM luAe fan t ee . . . . house inl f E I H I!
