Many times we try to recall that certain person, that certain activity. Try as we will we find it difficult to re-capture those things of the past. Can you remember your best friend of ten years ago? Can you remember the things you did five years ago? We forget so easily that even to re- think the scenes of one year gone by requires a memory aid. Therefore, Lest We Forget Union and the memories of her which we cherish, we, the Annual Staff of 1952, present Union " U " on the screen of these pages. mm mm J . 5. 25arqent hed One ,,ho ne ,er turned A « „ K doubted C ' ou _ , x t0 f ™,rcrf Ne.er doubted clouds S We have often W»f E V e fl ke ?es when speahn ora ' j s calling ' Me optimism of our dean, vt tee oft of verse applies to him. or fourteen years he served ifl " ' " Q cad9tnk dean, and ' forihe past far as d ° Mission, Qn Mon £ua hi, fulltme to ' ons ZZeJv o his full +° ®Ciia£;° hf ™ n y summer se55 ons f0 fS » es J is s %s friendliness his ready sympathy f jm h»JlJ Q?F cMo « of even the smallest kindness hiS euer " S °9 0e H fa of youth - - these we shall gtoetnben 7 love Q J US , he « +all in sia hre tall in soul, + U ' n ■ " » £ fall in the hearts oh all U ion ' -- vsa ' ■M Y.-v. afiagM r iiira.MiTr.iwi Atdminiitfation C7 taj-f Aubrey Jones, Dr. J.

Jones Dr. R. C. Briggs Dean Mattie Sanders Union University is definitely on the upgrade! One who has been around the school for any time at all, especially for four years, can readily see that the spirit and sense of unity on the campus has improved. As President of the Student Body, I have come to love our school and appreciate its in- fluence more than ever before. Our newly organized Student Council shows marks of becoming a potent factor for student unity and government. A new constitution has been drawn up to suit the present needs of the students and faculty. It is represented by students from every area of campus life, and is headed by the Student Body President. The faculty and administration have voiced their approval and backing of such an or- ganization. Serving, as your president for the past year has been a pleasant and profitable experience. I appreciate the confidence and cooperation of every student and every faculty member. May the next president find the same spirit prevailing. May God bless Union and provide her with the qualities that make for everlasting greatness.

WINCHESTER - ' :l - -: _u=«K3= Ulh UJho AHONG STUDENTS IN AMERICAN UNIVERSITIES AND COLLEGES " Who ' s Who in American Colleges and Universities " is a national publication in which the biographies of outstanding college students appear. Persons named for this honor are selected on the basis of character, leadership, and scholarship, as well as par- ticipation in extra-curricular activities. Public recognition of the worthy achievement of eight of the students of Union University has been made by their selection for this honor. Their pictures and thumb-nail sketches are given on the following four pages. We are proud of every one of them and believe they will bear their honors humbly and effectively in the years to come. ._ • ■ ■P SHIRLEY BRIDGES Shirley Bridges, a music major, is from Jackson, Tennessee. Seldom does one find a college student with so many talents — music, dra- matics, writing — in all these Shirley excels. Twice she has served as secretary of the Allegro Club, three times she has been class secretary, and twice was chosen Football Maid. Union is proud to number Shirley among her honor students. Who ' s Who CURTISS scon Magnetic character is the most noticeable factor in Curtiss Scott. To see him is to be inspired. This Jackson, Tennessee boy has served Union in his senior year as presi- dent of the Baptist Student Union, and as president of the Nestor Club. In his junior year he was Vice-President of the Student Body. !3£3S.: v- — skjkcsssss „-,-. m „_JSBi JUNE BOREN Verona, Mississippi is the home of June Boren. H ard work, per- sistence, and patience combine to make success. " Miss Union of 1951 " , " Most Popular Girl " , " Most Likely to Succeed " and Basketball Maid — these are rare honors. Add to this three years ' work on the editorial staff of the Cardinal and Cream and one year on the annual staff, plus leadership in all dra- matics and one has a picture of the industry of June Boren. Who ' s Who R. T. BLACKSTOCK R. T. Blackstock, a Jackson, Ten- nessee boy, is an all-round student on the campus. He is noted for his rare qualities of leadership and sincere friendliness. R. T. is a mem- ber of the J. R. Graves Society, the Phratra Club, and the Baptist Student Union. In 1950-51 he was elected President of the Student Body and Best-All-Round Boy. SHIRLEY WIELAND Shirley Wieland, a Trenton , Ten- nessee girl, is a transfer from Blue Mountain College. Scholarship and thoroughness are at once noted in Shirley ' s every activity. She is Sec- retary of the Student Body and is president of Hypatia. She is active in religious organizations and excels in the world of music. Who ' s Who HUGH ROSS WILLIAMS Hugh Ross Williams is also a Jackson, Tennessee product. At present he is President of the Stu- dent Body, and Boy-of-the-Month of April, so honored by the Ex- change Club. A talented leader, he is active in the religious and dramatic organizations on the cam- pus. issro sssjsw ssss?: Ed ssassessBS — m mm miimnimn MARY WARMATH Mayfield, Kentucky, is the home of Mary Warmath. She is secre- tary to Dr. Frank Wells, is married, and keeps a home; yet these do not affect her particip ation in various campus activities. Her high schol- arship is apparent from her regular appearance on the Dean ' s List. The Rice Latin Club, Hypatia, and the M. R. S. Club claim some of her time. Like many of the others, she, too, is an accomplished pianist. Who ' s Who CLYDE MAYFIELD Clyde Mayfield of Memphis, Tennessee excels in scholarship. In spite of the fact that he has a family and pastors a full-time church, he has had time for the Nestor Club, the Rice Latin Club, and the J. R. Graves Society. Clyde is a lawyer.

During this time the chapter room underwent complete redecoration and a tele- vision set was secured. Membership reached a height of thirty-two bringing the chapter near its maximum height. This group of " typical fellows " is known about the campus for its versatility. In the field of athletics they especially excel. Many important positions on this year ' s football, basketball, and base- ball squads were occupied by ATO ' s. Standing at the top among these outstanding athletes is Homer Spain, captain of the basketball team and president of the U-Club for the past two years. He is the first person to receive the DeLay Trophy, an award presented to Union ' s best-all-round athlete, and was placed on both the V.S.A.C. Conference first team and the tournament team. He holds the high point title for this conference. Another noted athlete is Sonny Haws who was co-captain of the Bull- dog basketeers and received honorable mention in the V.S.C.A. Conference. Captaining this year ' s football squad was another ATO, Melvin Pratt, a four year letterman in both football and baseball. Many other top campus honors were claimed this year by ATO ' s. Billy " Pete " Belew was chosen " Mr. Union " and received the Student Body Vice-Presidency. For the second consecutive year Gene Riddle served the annual, LEST WE FORGET, as its business manager. Charles Gaba captured the coveted title of " Most Handsome Boy " . By combining numerous parties and socials, beautiful banquets, genuine brotherly fellowship, a beautiful sweetheart, and Mother Ed, one has a clear picture of the wonderful year experienced by brothers of Beta Tau.

The fellow- ship and brotherhood that is characteristic of Sigma Alpha Epsilon has been manifest in the many social meetings and business gatherings. As usual, the outstanding event was the Coronation Banquet, when Miss Jane Marcum was crowned Queen of S.A.E. In addition to this, the Founder ' s Day Banquet, Spring Splash to Natchez Trace, the Christmas Party for the Underprivileged children, the Hobo Party, Hay- rides, and numerous other gatherings of S.A.E. ' s and their dates have been carried out in true S.A.E. splendor. Tennessee Eta ' s greatest thrill of the year came when Sig Alph Burton Robnett ' s grandmother, Mrs. Dora Marsh, presented the chapter with an oil painting of the National Fraternity ' s Eminent Supreme Recorder, John O. Moseley. Brother Moseley, who is known in all fraternity circles, visited Tennessee Eta Chapter in April. Many campus honors have been showered on the men of the fraternity. Among these we find Bob Childers as Most Popular Boy and Best-All-Round Boy; Bob Holland as Editor of LEST WE FOR- GET; Jimmy Thomas as president of the Junior class; Jim Yates as Senior class president; Bob Childers as Junior class chaplain and Treasurer on the B.S.U. Council and Bob Holland represented the Junior class on the Student Council. In sports Charles " Chuck " Williams was elected Captain of the 1952-53 football squad and also named as Honorable Mention on the " V.S.A.C. team; Pat Wills also received Honorable Mention on the V.S.A.C. team. Remodeling the fraternity house and beautifying the grounds added interest to the chapter home and served as another means of fellowship and communion of brothers.

" Jean Outlaw, ' 51. The Phratra Club was born of a desire to carry the above message to youth just out of high school, as they stand at the crossroads of life. What finer service could be rendered inquiring youth than to point them to this, " more than a college, " Union University, where character and spiritual development are on equal footing with academic achievement; where credits count; but where man- hood and womanhood are paramount. To this end Phratra was born and to the building of a greater Union University she dedicates herself. J- hra, tru ( lub OFFICERS R. T.

The success of the past season was not shown in the games won or lost but can be measured only in the progress made by Coach Jelks and Asst. Coach Spencer Holt. Several formidable foes were listed on Unions schedule some of which boasted Little Ail-Ameri- cans such as Middle Tennessee ' s Lyons and Runion and others who rated high on all star selections. In every game Union was outweighed and in most instances out- manned. This was due in part to the small number of lettermen who returned and to the fact that four starting players were declared ineligible midway in the season. A flashback of the games reveals that Florence State, Middle Tennessee State, Austin Peay College. and Howard College were the strongest of our opponents. Our offense was in highest gear against Mississippi College, but the Homecoming game against Georgetown College was rated by Bull- dog followers as the outstanding game of the season. The Bulldogs truly de- served to win this game for the entire team played as a unit and the blocking and tackling was at its best. The game featured a sight never before seen by Union fans. On a trick play lineman, John Roberts, ran the ball 70 yards for a touchdown. The prospects for next year are indeed bright with sixteen returning lettermen. several junior college transfers, and many freshmen tryouts who will all com- bine to compose the 1952 football squad. However, the loss of such valuable letter- men as Jack Yearout, John Hooper, Melvin Pratt, R. T. Blackstock, and Thur- man Gregg can not be taken lightly. With two capable coaches, a revised schedule, and leaders such as Captain " Chuck " Williams and Alternate Captain " Babe " Felker, next year ' s football season holds forth much promise. 1951 SCHEDULE Union University Bulldogs .Florence State 44 Mississippi College 13 Middle Tennessee State 60 Carson-Newman 34 Austin Peay 56 Howard College 4 I Memphis Navy 22 Georgetown College 19 ( Homecoming) FOOTBALL ROSTER Union Union 26 Union 6 Union Union Union Union 13 Union 13 R.

COACHES Union ' s athletic program this year was under the direction of Athletic Director and Head Coach Robert Jelks and Assistant Coach Spencer Holt. Both a well-rounded varsity and intramural pro- gram was provided affording each stu- dent an opportunity to participate in some form of athletics. Coach Robert Jelks was born in Tyler- town, Mississippi and attended high school there. Upon graduation he entered Pearl River Junior College at Poplarville, Mississippi where he lettered in five sports. He entered Union University in ' 36 and took an active part in both foot- ball and basketball. He received his Master ' s Degree from George Peabody College. For nine years he coached at Grove High School in Paris, Tennessee where he produced some of the state ' s finest football and basketball teams. For a short interval during World War II he came to Union as physical education in- structor in the Air Corps Unit stationed here. He came to Union as athletic head this year to replace Coach Turney Ford. Assistant Coach Spencer Holt was born in Franklin, Tennessee and attended Battle Ground Military Academy there. He attended T. P. I. at Cookeville, Ten- nessee where he lettered in football. His college career was interrupted by two and a half years in the Navy during World War II. Upon returning from the service he enrolled in Arkansas A and M College, Monticello, Arkansas where he lettered in football, baseball, and tennis. He came to Union three years ago and now serves as football line coach, base- ball coach, and assistant basketball coach.

Leading the V. S. A. C. Conference throughout the season, the Bulldogs lost the conference title in the final game against mighty David Lips- comb quint et to finish the season with a six won two lost record which was good for the second place conference position. The nucleus of this year ' s team was formed around seven returning lettermen from last year ' s squad. This group re- ceived able support from a host of new- comers including two junior college trans- fers and a large group of freshmen. One could see from a glance that these pros- pects possessed a combination of ability and experience that should compose a winning team. The outstanding play dur- ing the season proved this prediction to be true. The Bulldogs had an overall season record of 17 wins and II losses including tournament play. They were on the heart- breaking end of three one-point margin games during the year, losing these to Delta State, Austin Peay, and George- town. As the season progressed the Bulldogs showed marked improvement both in- dividually and collectively. Their best effort for the season was a 75-62 victory over David Lipscomb on the latter ' s court. The aggressiveness, accuracy, and fine team play displayed in this contest labeled the Bulldogs as one of the best teams in the conference. Another high- light event was the 87-56 trouncing ap- plied to Middle Tennessee State in tour- nament play for the Bulldog ' s third straight win over the Blue Raiders. 1951-52 BASKETBALL SCHEDULE Union 49 Delta State 51 Union 90 ..

However, the most spectacular performances were turned in by Homer Spain, Sonny Haws, J. M. Parks and John Hooper. Playing aqainst the powerful, nationally ranked Murray State Thoroughbreds, Spain proved more than equal to the occasion by contributing 37 points in the Bull- dog s losing effort. It was such outstand- ing play as this throughout the year that prompted both the Murray State and Memphis State coaches to rate Spain as one of the most outstanding centers in the nation. Haws reached the peak of perfection against Millsaps College. His aggressiveness and fine ball handling against this formidable foe enabled him to lead the Bulldogs to an easy triumph and to score 30 points during the course of the contest. In the Memphis Navy game Parks ably controlled both back- boards and fired in 36 points to insure victory. Hooper, playing inspired ball, kept Union in the running with Delta State for the first half of the home game only to see a weakened-by-injury Bulldog quintet succumb in the later stages. Although a tough assignment is seen in replacing John Hooper and Homer Spain, lost through graduation, Union ' s prospects for next year seem excellent. Returnees from the squad include Sonny Haws, Royce Askew, Billy Mayo, J. M. Parks. Raymond Carlock, Kenneth Haw- kins, Rollie France, Bobby Joe Morris and Jack Morris. Add to this group promis- ing players from the " B " team plus many able prospects and the 1953 Bulldogs should again prove to be a conference power.

The Chorus consisting of seventy voices is directed by Prof. Alton E. Harvey. Piano accompanist is Miss Kathleen Conner. Some of the major accomplishments are the annual participation in the music at the Baptist State Convention, the Christ- mas cantata, chain radio broadcasts, the spring tours to various churches and high schools, and the Easter music. This year the Chorus also provided music for the Gymnasium Kick-Off Rally dinner, and for the Jackson Chamber of Commerce Annual Meeting. The Chorus furnished the background music for the production of the Black Hills Passion Play presented by Josef Meier and his internationally known cast from Black Hills, South Dakota.
