" If today will not, tomorrow may. " What an optimistic thought! It was this optimism which we have for the future that prompted the annual staff to choose this theme. In today ' s atomic age, much attention is given to rocket ships, modern designs, and all the things that depict the unknown, yet hopeful, future. While holding on to these optimistic thoughts of tomorrow, the staff has tried to present a true picture of Union University in the year of 1955, Lest We Forget. 45 Dedication . . . MR. THOMAS O. HALL The year 1949 brought Mr. Hall to Union ' s campus. Since then he has daily grown taller in the eyes of the students. In addition to excellent teaching, he has demon- strated a quick humor, warm friendliness, an intense inter- est in campus affairs, and best of all a lofty religious zeal. We, the staff of 1955, therefore, dedicate this an- nual to him, our professor and friend. ■4. 6 ►- W, D. O. J4J! My dear Friends: Many people write books. Some write fiction, some bio- graphy, some history, others poetry. All may be different in form and pattern, but one element remains universal. Every book contains a message — and that peculiar to the purpose of the author. Your annual staff of 1955 has prepared for you a book. Though unique in form, it too contains a message peculiar to the purpose of its authors, of whom you, a student at Union University, are one. You have contributed to its contents; you have helped to establish its purpose. As you read your college annual through the years, it will remind you of the objectives and ideals of your Alma Mater, of which you were a part. It will portray more and more meaningfully the true message of four years of col- lege life. It will remind you of friendships made, of lessons learned, of academic achievement, of spiritual enrichment. The message of this book, therefore, like so many good things will become more and more precious and will unfold in its richness as the years unfold your own maturity. Lest we forget, let us read and re-read its pages often. Sincerely yours, Warren F. Jones President ]►- oLJr. Warren jr. A ' arren President ones -4f 9 f 1 y ' tb hc IS ftiDllil ■1 !

Persons named for this honor are selected on the basis of char- acter, leadership and scholarship, as well as participation in extra-curricular activities. Public recognition of the worthy achievements of nine 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 five pages. We are proud of every one of them and believe they will bear their honors humbly and effectively in the years to come. - { 56 fa- CL riitine Si iSSon Christine, from Lexington, Tennessee, is one of those persons who possesses the cov- eted ability of working mathematics. She has been very active in Zeta Tau Alpha activities, serving as president in her senior year. Chris- tine has been secretary and vice-president of the Mallory Math Club, circle chairman in Y. W. A., and a member of the student council. Comity L tare l l ielanci An attractive brunette from Trenton, Tennessee, has contributed greatly to our campus with her many talents. Emily, an accomplished vocalist and pianist, has taken active part in all campus activities. She has served as president of her fraternity, Chi Omega, and as president of Pan Hellenic Council. Allegro, Hypatia, and chorus mem- bers will easily remember Emily as one of the faithful. As Emily leaves our campus for a teaching career, we wish her success along life ' s road. Uirqinia lUloore Jewell Attractive and friendly, " Jinny " Sewell of Jackson has been an active participant in campus activities. Her Christian influence has been a helping hand to many students.

This fellowship combined with scholarship and extra-curricular activities has formed a well- rounded program for the ATO ' s on Union ' s campus. This year again found the Taus outstanding in every phase of campus life. Editor of Lest We Forget was Forrest Shearon. Leon Morris was selected for Who ' s Who in American Colleges and Universities, and also elected most Popular Boy. The Vice-Pres- ident of the Senior class was Richard Ross. ATO ' s also held places of leadership in numerous campus organizations and clubs. In the field of athletics the Beta Tau boys " stole the show. " Under the leadership of co-captain Billy B. Smith, the basketball team consisted mostly of ATO ' s. The base- ball team showed virtually every position dominated by Taus, and they came out on top in the football intramurals by virtue of a 12-0 record. And who can forget the great playing done by the ATO ' s in the basketball commercial league, on the tennis courts and the golf course. These honors, features, and activities combined with beautiful banquets, warm social events, a wonderful sweetheart, and a loving fraternity mother, round out a year keynoted by success and highlighted by a close fellowship of the brothers of Alpha Tau Omega.

Among these are Queen of Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Best All-round Girl, Most Popular Girl, Miss Union, Cheerleaders, Strawberry Queen and two of her maids, representatives in Who ' s Who in American Colleges and Universities, Freshman Queen and Maid, Basketball Maid and representatives in the Ten Most Beautiful Girls.

Giving of Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets, playing Santa Claus for a group of children, aiding in the polio drive and the collection for the heart fund have been a part of Chi Omega ' s civic activities. Their social life has included an Introductory Tea for Pledges, an annual winter banquet, Fall and Spring Eleusinia, a blue-jeans party, numerous slumber parties, and a spring outing. Regretfully they see a happy year close, but they look anxiously to the future and the fulfilment of their many dreams.

RICHARD WEHR Coach RICHARD ROSS Manager Union University ' s Bulldogs opened their second season under Coach Dick Wehr by bowing the Lipscomb ' s Bisons from Nashville by the score of 63 to 7 I . The second game of the season saw the Bulldogs succumb to Ole Miss in a hard fought ballgame, 59-67. The bulldogs threw quite a score into the Southeastern Conference Power. Union capped their first win from Florence State by soundly trouncing the Lions, 85-69. Union dropped the next game to Belmont by the humiliating score of 70-97. While still suffering from the effects of the Belmont game, the Big Reds lost again to U. T. Martin Branch, 57-68. The Unionites came back strong to soundly whip a highly regarded Arkansas State team by the decisive score of 84-67. The Bulldog team seemed to be gaining momentum as they squeezed past a strong Bethel team, 75-73. The Mississippi College Choctaws came to town and left again on the long end of a 63-87 score. The Red team dropped its next four losing to East Texas State, 75-93; and then Arkansas State Teachers, 73-75. Memphis State dropped the Bulldogs, 67-99; this was followed by a 61-73 loss to Southwestern. The Union Team, led by Seniors Billy B. Smith and Jim Byassee, got hot and took the next five in a row: Belmont, 86-70; Austin Peay, 84-68; Florence State, 86-79; Southwestern, 95-61. Austin Peay stopped the try for six in a row by outlasting the Big Reds 71-73 in an overtime period. U. T. Martin downed the Unionites again, 85-92. The Big Reds came back with wins over Lipscomb, Christian Brothers College, and Milligan. A strong L. M. U. team dumped them 72-87. The Bulldogs came home and knocked off C. B. C. and Bethel before entering the V. S. A. C. Tournament. In the V. S. A. C. tourney, Bethel, a team Union had squeezed by twice previously, knocked them out of the tournament in the first game. On the long road trip after the tournament, the Bulldogs dropped games to Arkansas State, Delta State, and Mississippi College. -4 122 - I vleet Ulnion 6 d3ulido fr -4123 JUNIOR PREWETT Guard JOHNNY ROSE Guard JUNIOR DAUGHTERY Guard CHARLES SCHULER Forward ROBERT BENSON Forward BOBBY MOORE Forward SAMMY LOWERY Guard RAY CARPENTER Center Ij utldoas on defense rreu, where s the ballf Dmitri lauS up two points J rewett scrambles for bal I MMgp p f.. ■ II !■! heerieadi erd JOYCE HENRY, LUCY BUTLER, PAT BLANKENSHIP, SYLVIA FULMER, DON COWAN, BOBBY JOE MORRIS -4( 128} -. i m , a -M at n® am im asi rtf; !
