" J -. • ' -V u--.» „ CROOK HALL JONES HALL GYMNASIUM SCIENCE BUILDING ADAMS HALL DEDICATION... When the Staff of 1957 selected the theme of track, they felt it essential that this edition be dedicated to one who has contributed much to our athletic department. Mrs. Grace Williams, who has been consistent in Union ' s race for many years, making outstanding contributions along her course, has always pressed on toward higher goals. No one in West Tennessee has helped to train more of our coaches or knows more about our coaching problems than Mrs. Williams. Her guidance continues even beyond graduation day. This lady is well-known for her unique artistic talent in producing floats that are winners in any parade. Thanks to her efforts, if Union is entered, Union is the victor. Mrs. Williams has never embraced defeat; in fact, her spirit of optimism has been a source of inspiration to everyone at Union. Therefore, it is with humble admiration and appreciation that we dedicate this, the 1957 " Lest We Forget, " to one who has been a constant source of encouragement to every member of Union ' s complete team— MRS. GRACE WILLIAMS. MRS. GRACE WILLIAMS Dear Friends: It is eminently fitting that your annual staff has chosen " TRACK " as the theme for the 1957 issue of LEST WE FORGET. This is appropriate not only because track is rapidly finding an important place in the athletic program of Union University, but because of more fundamental reasons and associations. The indivi- duality expressed and developed through the medium of track events is not unrelated to that which is cultivated and emphasized in the total purpose of liberal arts education. Self-confidence, self-depen- dence, self-assertiveness are qualities and attributes aligned with both. The Olympic Games in their original form combined athletics, poetry, and music, evolving in the process of time to athletic events only, and these events largely in the area of track. So, as we muse upon the theme of our year book we readily see that it is not farfetched, but an integral part of the philosophy of our college. One other application. Union is a college of Christian purpose. One of the most pungent scriptural analogies is found in the twelfth chapter of Hebrews in which the Christian is portrayed as a runner who lays aside his hindering impediments and launches out on a course with high purposes toward a clear objective. Lest You Forget the worthy goals toward which your college has directed you and the rich experiences which have been yours in the maturing process of college life, read often LEST WE FORGET. Sincerely, Warren F. Jones President =« ' 3 10 DR. WARREN F. JONES A RAGE TO RUN A life begun, a race to run And each must do his best. A life to live, a life to give God will do the rest. The track is laid, the rules are made The prompter stands at hand. His guiding voice, the rules enforce And idlers reprimand. OUR DEAN DR. F. E.

Not only have they been chosen for many campus honors, but they have deepened and widened their circle of friendship and love. Zetas came through in the Fall elections in their usual manner vv ' ith Mary Evelyn Moore receiving the crown of Miss Union, Sandra Taylor being elected Most Popular Girl, and Janice Dotson Cheerleader. Beyond reigning as Miss Union, Mary Evelyn served as President of Greek Coun- cil and Crook Hall. Sandra maintained office as President of the Y. W. A. and Vice-President of Crook Hall. Rita Tillman is listed in Who ' s Who in American Colleges and Universities. Girls of Beta Omega also held offices and were active members of the band and chorus, Hypatia Literary Society, Rice Latin Club, Allegro Club, Y. W. A., Future Teachers of America, B. S. U. Council, Life Service Band, Student Council, publications staffs. Alpha Psi Omega, Footlights Club, Prince-Davis Science Club, and the Shelbians. Social life of the chapter included date parties, teas, hamburger suppers, dinner parties, Founder ' s Day Banquet, surprise parties for members, and many informal get-togethers in the chapter room. The climax to all social activities, however, was the exquisite Spring Formal Banquet. The daughters of Themis showed their versatility by enthusiastically supporting all these activities, the intramural program, the Greek Week obser ' ation, as well as keeping their scholarship high above average. f Mary Evelyn Moore President Dorothy Harvey Vice-President Sue Thomas Secretary Sandra TA-iT-OR Treasurer Rita Tillman Rush Chairman Emily Flonvers Historian ' « ' 3 96 c - Diana Jackson Linda Ferguson Virginia Crocker flip . at Ann Byard Nancy Murphy Leslye Anne Heuoatter Peggy Holder Delores Dorris Beverly Moore Helen Kemp Betty Jo Pennington Joan Garey Glenda McDaniel Carolyn Tisdale Janice Dotson •« 3 97 5 James MoKissack EA Second Semester » % ' " " ■■1 9 TiMMY Deaton Tames Watts Don HoLtFtEU) i TENNESSEE ETA OF SIGMA ALPHA EPSILON Founded: July 4, 1857 Flower: Violet Union University, Jackson, Tennessee It is difficult for any man to be truly happy without being an active member of a group society. The person apart from the group gains little for himself and contributes nothing to mankind. Realizing this necessity for group relationships and the virtues which could be devel- oped in the proper group, a ntimber of men formed a chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon on the campus of Murfreesboro College at Murfreesboro, Tennessee, on July 4, 1857. This was the beginning of Tennessee Eta Chapter of SAE, which was later located here in Jackson, when the institution wzs, moved. The ideals and goals set forth by this group have served as the impetus to drive the men of Tennessee Eta through one hundred years of rich history. During this century the members of Tennessee Eta have enjoyed the closest ties of friendship and brotherhood with a true atmosphere of harmony and good will always present. Once more this year the social e ' ents held by SAE were outstanding. Certainly the most prominent of these events was the annual Coronation Banquet and the accompanying crown- ing of the beautiful Miss Peggy Trevathan as Queen of SAE. Following this banquet there was an impressive after-party which will never be forgotten by those who attended. During the Christmas season the men of Tennessee Eta enjoyed once more the heart- warming experience of having a Christmas Party for underprivileged boys in this area. It was Tennessee Eta ' s Centennial which occasioned one of our largest and most successful Founder ' s Day Banquets. Various other parties were held throughout the year, reaching a climax in the Spring Splash, which is always one of the year ' s most enjoyable events for the Sig Alphs and their dates. The men of SAE held many positions of honor this year. Brother Don Cowan was presi- dent of the student body. Members were on the staff of both campus publications, the Cardi- nal and Cream, and the " Lest We Forget. " Brother Bobby Briggs held three positions of honor, being president of the Senior Glass, listed in Who ' s Who In American Colleges and Universi- ties, and elected Senior Boy Most Likely to Succeed. Bill Howse was vice-president of the Freshman class, and was a cheerleader, as was Brother Arnold Blewer. Brother John Barber was selected Sophomore Class Speaker. There were five Sig Alphs on the Dean ' s List. The men of Tennessee Eta held memberships in fifteen of the organizations on the campus. This has been another year to remember for SAE, and as we enter the threshold of our second century, we look forward with the assuiance that Tennessee Eta will continue in the high ideals of its fotmders.

BETA TML.r OF mf ALPHA TAU OMEGA Founded at Virginia Military Institute, Richmond, Virginia, September 11, 1865 Colors; Flower: Old Gold and Sky Blue White Tea Rose " To bind men together into a brotherhood,, based upon eternal and immutable principles. " This was one of the basic principles upon which Alpha Tau Omega was founded 92 yeai-s ago. It was the first fraternity to be founded after the Civil Var and one of its designs was to heal the break between the North and South. Today from that beginning, that brotherhood has grown to international proportions, and Beta Tau Chapter stands high among the 117 Chapters spread throughout North America. The year 1956 will be regarded as a highwater mark for Beta Tau because for the first time we have a fraternity house of our own. Mrs. Wordie Magevney is sei-i ' ing gra- ciously as our house mother. We also reached a high of 57 members, including pledges and actives. The men of the Blue and Gold were conspicuous on the campus as they enga,ged in the various phases of campus life. The Taus were represented by six class officers including Ted Janes as Vice-President of the Senior Class, and Paul Sanderfer as President of the Sophomore Class. Brother Ted Janes was also Vice-President of the Student Body and elected to Who ' s Who of American Collega. Brother Don Bishop was elected Most Handsome Boy. Six brothers were on the Dean ' s List the first semester. The Taus had members in all the major clubs and virtually dominated varsity and intramural sports on the campus. The Varsity Basketball team boa.sted eif ht Taus. the Freshmen team 13 Taus, the baseball team 10 Taus, the Track team 10 ATO ' s, while the VSAC Champion Cross Countn- Team had five of seven teatn members. Brothers Don Bishop and Bob " Wiihoit were co-captains of the Basketball team, and Bob was also Presi- dent of the U Club, while Brother s Robin Coi ' man served as Vice-President and James Scott as Secretary-. In Intramurals, the Taus captured three straight tro- phies, taking football, basketball, and volleyball. Brothers Jim Brandon and James Scott will attend the National Chapter Officers Conference in New York. The .ATO social year included the Spring Splash, num- erous parties, and the highlight, the Sweetheart Banquet, where amid the beautiful splendor of the theme, " Hitch Your Wagon to a Star, " Miss Janette Walker was crowned Sweetheart of . " TO. .At Christmas time, the Taus distributed baskets to needy families. The hi.gh ideals maintained by .-VTO, their close fellow- ship based on Christian principles, combined with the beau- tiful banquets, their wonderful sweetheart, and Mother Ed Stanfield, honored by tlic , TO Maga;:ini-. The Palm, which published a story about her 35 years as our Chapter Mom, all went together in making the school year successful and complete.

Pat Blankenship Brenda Russ - Bill Howse Ann Morris Arnold Blewer j BASKETBALL The Big Red of Union closed its ' 56- ' 57 with a 10 won, 13 lost season record, and had a 4 won, 6 lost con- ference standing. The team had a series of hot and cold spells, ending the season in one of their hot spells in which they were practically invincible winning 4 of their last 5. Twice during the season, the Bulldogs hit over the century mark in scoring victories over Chattanooga 102-62 and in their last game over traditional rival David Lipscomb 104-74. Probably the sour note of the year was a humiliating 105-78 score lost to Belmont Home- coming Game. The Bulldogs obtained revenge by trouncing them later in the season, during their fast finish in which they polished ofT highly rated CBC of Memphis and Bethel College, also. Five seniors, Don Bishop, Eddie Truett, Bob Wilhoit, Ed Given, and Sammy Lowry will be sorely missed next year, but the Freshmen team ' s fine showing this year seems to indicate they will be able to move up to the varsity and fill the gap- The charges of Coach Jack Russell placed three men on the all-conference team, Don Bishop, Ed Truett and Bob Wilhoit. Bishop made it for his second straight year. " Bish " led the team in scoring and points per game for the second straight year. Truett and Bob Wilhoit also usually did their share of filling the basket, while Truett and Johnny Orr led the team in rebounds.
