It is, therefore, essential that this edition be dedicated to builders. No one on the staff of Union University has done more toward building confidence in Union ' s financial program than Mr. Frank Blythe. For seventeen years he has been our business manager. During the trying times of World War II, his strength and devotions were dedicated to keeping the college on a firm financial basis. Having weathered some of Union ' s most trying years, he remains a great asset in the post-war program. For many years Mrs. Frank Blythe has served as a teacher in the English Department. The personal interest she takes in each student, the understanding she has of student problems, and her never-ending p atience have helped hundreds of young people to survive the first trying year of college. For many she has been a steady source of guidance and inspiration in the years that follow graduation. In their dedicated home life and their devotion to church and community, the Blythes have contributed not only to the University but also the city of Jackson. Therefore, we devotedly dedicate this 1956 edition of Lest We Forget to consistent builders — W, and IfU 3rad Bl lk I fir. and I fin. Zrrank t Jluth r ■4 1 - Dear Students: The Annual staff has chosen the theme " Construction " for your 1955-56 yearbook. Construction is an intriguing word. It implies progress, foresight, vision, objectivity, and purpose. Your yearbook will suggest directly and indirectly the many connotations of this interesting theme. Usually when we think of construction, there comes to our minds a building, a highway, a bridge, or some other physical improvement. Your yearbook will suggest some items in that regard, because during your stay at Union University you have seen new buildings going up and being put into use almost constantly. You have seen an improved campus. You have seen improved physical facilities in department after department. Seldom have you left the campus for a period of time and returned without finding some noteworthy physical improvement. The theme of your Annual will also suggest to you the most important aspect of progress, improvement, vision, and understanding as acquired through your social and classroom contacts with fellow students and faculty members. If your years in college have fulfilled the objectives of the institution to any significant degree, you will leave the campus with an awareness of the social amenities and their value, and with an apprecia- tion of intellectual development through a store of knowledge, and a sharpened intellect to the extent that every time you observe your Annual, you will experience a sense of appreciation and gratitude for those who have made possible your Alma Mater. But no process of construction is satisfactory unless there has been a carefully devised plan for harmonious development and a rhythmic treatment of the entire process that gives refinement, culture, richness, and beauty to the whole project. Your Union University seeks above all things to make her sons and daughters keenly aware of the profound desirability of such development which comes only through proper atti- tudes, proper spirit, and proper regard for God and His way for their lives. If you have felt the impact of that factor at Union, then as you read the pages of this book, you will utter a silent prayer of thankfulness for that influence in your life; and it will grow richer as the years pass. This theme, too, does not only imply construction and progress in making of your own lives as it is done here at Union University, but it can serve as an incentive for you to think constructively and act constructively in all areas of your existence as you go out to serve society through the years. Lest we forget, we should read often " Lest We Forget. " Warmest good wishes always. Sincerely, Warren F. Jones, President -4 8 fc— OUR PRESIDENT amn T. stones es r. l Uarren jr.

What is it? It is a brotherhood; a group of men who have subjugated their own selfish feelings and self-centered interests, and have placed in supreme position a deep interest and concern for their brothers. This ideal was the spark which burst forth into a brilliant flame one hundred years ago in the hearts of eight men attending the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. Thus Sigma Alpha Epsilon, a fraternity with high ideals and standards, was born. This frater- nity was destined to spread and last. In the century just gone, more than 90,000 college men have carried on the tra- dition of our great and noble fraternity and it has grown to national proportions, hav- ing 139 chapters in 46 states, Tennessee Eta, the fourth chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon, celebrates this year her 99th birthday. During the year Tennessee Eta initiated 16 undergraduates into the active chapter giving us one of the largest active chapters in our long history. In a social nature, this year the Coronation Banquet was highlighted by the crown- ing of the beautiful Miss Louise Johnson as SAE Queen. The Christmas party for nine underprivileged boys of the Jackson area warmed the hearts of all present. The greatest and largest Founder ' s Day ever held by Tennessee Eta focused attenion on our 1 00th anniversary. With several parties held occasionally at the chapter house throughout the term, the year seemed complete. However, the climax to this great social year came in the form of the Spring Splash. Ask any Sig Alph, he will tell you that this was a social year to remember. The Sig Alphs were in the limelight again this year as honors were heaped on its members. Brother Don Coleman held the reigns for the Student Body as President of the Student Government Association. Sig Alphs were found at the head of both college publications; Jim Williams served as editor of the Cardinal and Cream, and Barrie Bright was editor of the annual you are now reading, the Lest We Forget. Two brothers, Bob Sims and Don Coleman, were listed in " Who ' s Who in American Colleges and Universities. " Don Cowan was elected Best All Around Boy and Don Coleman was elected Senior Most Likely to Succeed. The presidency was held in the Nestor Club, Prince-Davis Science Club, Hypatia, and Alpha Psi Omega by Sig Alphs as were the vice-presidency of Phi Alpha Theta and the Mallory Math Club. SAE was represented in all sports. Don Cowan and Arnold Blewer served as Cheerleaders. Spurred on by the old Phi Alpha spirit, the SAE intramural bas- ketball team went undefeated to take the field in intramural basketball. The SAE ' s served in different capacities in fifteen of the organizations on the campus. This has truly been a great Centennial Year for Tennessee Eta and we are looking forward to next year when our own chapter will pass the 100 year mark.

Forty-three men were pledged, the largest pledge class in our history, and nineteen men were initiated during the school year. Believing that " variety is the spice of life, " the brothers of the Maltese Cross drew members from every phase of life, displayed by their participation in all school activities. In the class offices, the men of the Blue and Gold had Forrest Shearon as president of the senior class, Johnny Rose, vice-president of the junior class, Bill Noblett, junior class representative, and Ted Janes and Paul Sanderfer, speakers of the junior and fresh- man classes. Five brothers were found on the Dean ' s list and Paul Sanderfer had the highest Freshman grade average. The Taus were also represented on the staffs of the Cardinal and Cream and Lest We Forget and various other organizations. The band and chorus had its share of ATO ' s, and Bill Dunning was a soloist in the chorus. Brother Edsel Pate was selected as most handsome boy. Brothers Gene Atkins and Bill Noblett were representatives to the National Chap- ter Officers Conference at the University of Colorado at Boulder. The Taus had more athletes than any organization on the campus and virtually dominated varsity sports, their members forming majority on the basketball and base- ball teams. The high ideas maintained by ATO, their close fellowship based on Christian prin- ciples, combined with the beautiful banquets, the Spring Splash and other social events, their wonderful sweetheart, and Mother Ed Stanfield, in her 34th year as Chapter Mom, all went together in making the school year successful and complete.

COACH, JACK RUSSELL MANAGER. ROBIN COFFMAN The Union Bulldogs, under new mentor, Jack Russell, closed the 55-56 season with a record of 5 won and 18 lost, but the year had its moments of encouragement, and it must be remem- bered that the team included six freshmen. There were bright spots like the upset over UTMB, the two early conference triumphs over David Lipscomb and Bethel, the losing effort to a greatly favored Arkansas State five by only 3 points, and the sensational last-half comeback against Chattanooga in the Homecoming Game. Next year with a year ' s experience under their belts, this young Union team will have to be reckoned with. Union finished with a 2-8 mark in conference play, and was eliminated in the fi rst round of the V.S.A.C. tournament at Nashville. Don Bishop, a transfer student, led the team in scoring this year with 406 points for a 17.7 average per game, and was given an honorable mention berth on the all-conference team for his efforts. Freshman " Moon " Mullins scored 270 points, Chatham 203, and Johnny Orr 200 for the other top scoring laurels.
