Under his leadership Union soon became a member of the Southern Association of Colleges, erected new buildings, and expanded her entire program. Behind every great man is a good woman, and this case is no exception. Dr. Dixie Marcum Jones, the vivacious little professor who glides through our hails, has been a source of inspiration in her home, in her classroom, and to hun- AT dreds who have been guided by her words of wisdom. Her love for Union is expressed In fhe words of fhe college hymn, which she wrote. Students appreciate the ability of Dr. and Mrs. Jones, appreciate their work and their accomplishments, but most of all Union students are grateful for their warm hearts and their undying Interest in youth. Because of this we humbly dedicate this 1959 edition of Lest We Forget to our leaders .... Dr. and Mrs. Warren F. Jones DENT Musical Comedy is as characteristically American as going to college. It seems relevant, therefore, that the staff of Lest We Forget has selected Musical Comedy as the theme for the 1959 edition. Musical Comedy portraying life in American society and the college yearbook presenting a cross section of life on the college campus have their definite similarities. The lilting touches of good humor as found in Porgy and Bess; the satire of Gershwin ' s Of Thee I Sing; the freshness and genuineness of Showboat; and the beauty of The King and I are qualities that are inherent in the student body of the typical American college. No longer does the librettist of the musical art need restrict himself to cliches, rather freedom of thought and expression characterize his purpose. Nor does the com- poser seek just good tunes, but a great score — the combination seeking to effect an organic relationship between dramatic theme and musical form. Similarly the educational " librettist " sets a pattern for modern higher education that eliminates the practice of platitudes, but on the other hand proposes to stimulate freedom of thought and expression which when combined with initiative and a tone of living proposes to produce a harmonious relationship and a product acceptable to our society. These objectives are clearly identified and depicted through your yearbook. Just as you In observing the performance of the musical-dramatic production exper- ience the events vicariously. In like manner will you relive and assimilate the events of col- lege life as you read and reread the contents of your yearbook. Therefore, let us read often Lest We Forget. — Warren F. Jones President AM: DR.. D. A. ELLi: Because of his warm smile, his generous heart, his rich wisdom, his years of loyal service and his great soul, the memory of Dr. D. A. Ellis will be forever enshrined in the hearts of Union students. The following lines written by Edwin Markham remind us of him: And when he fell in whirlwind, he went down As when a lordly cedar, green with boughs. Goes down with a great shout upon the hills. And leaves a lonesome place against the sky. " So when a great man dies, For years beyond our ken. The light he leaves behind him lies Upon the paths of men. " — Longfellow MRS. O. D.

The sisterhood of Zeta Tau Alpha spans the days in college and the years outside these ivy walls. The influence of Zeta as an international fraternity has been felt in more than one country.

Colors: Cardinal and Straw. Flower: White Carnation. The members of the U psilon Chapter of Chi Omega exemplify its open motto, " Hellenic Culture and Christian Ideals.

Among these were Escorts to Miss Union, Maids to Basketball Queen, Maids to Miss University, Queen of Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Cheerleaders, Freshman Queen and Maids, Representatives in ten Campus Favorites, Best Ail-Around Girl, Most Popular Girl, and Who ' s Who in American Colleges and Universities.

As we come to the close of another wonderful year, we are full of sadness for those who are leaving us, but we are joyful over a successful year. Memories of this year will live forever in our hearts. Chi Omega ' s social life holds memories of a Hal- lowe ' en Date Party, a stew supper, a surprise party for actives, chicken-bean supper, the annual Winter Banquet, Fall and Spring Eleusinia, and is climaxed with a spring outing. The civic activities included giving Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets, a Christmas party for a needy family, and selling papers for the Lions Club. Ail this, and more, have played a part in making this a great year for the Upsilon Chapter of Chi Omega. Next year, we know, will be another characterized by love and friendship.

Tennessee Eta of Sigma Alpha Epsilon Founded: March 9, 1856 at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. Colors: Royal Purple and Old Gold Flower: Violet A Fraternity, a house, a handshake, a badge, a name, a password — these are not the things which make a fraternity. Hearts bound in one accord, singing together, eating together, laughing together, working together, worshipping together, living together — these make fraternity. This is Tennessee Eta of S. A. E. Christian ideals, heart deep relations, brotherhood with all mankind; these are the very essence of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. This was a year of happiness, brimful with memories for our future ... as we watched our queen, the lovely Miss Robbie Wilson, receive her crown at the Coronation Banquet; as the eyes of indigent children glittered with the joy of an unexpected Christmas; and as fifteen young men joined the ever widening circle of brotherhood ... a year rippling with action as the Sig Alphs excelled in sports; as they journeyed to the Ozark Mountains for a week-end; as they went again to Montgomery Bell State Park for the annual spring splash and as many of the brothers filled vital positions of leadership on the campus. These are a few of the achievements of our members this school year; Rex Enoch was vice-presi- dent of the student body; Barry McComic was an outstanding class speaker; Rex Enoch and John Barber were members of Nestor Club and John served as president; Dickie Laughlin was selected most hand- some; Rex Enoch was elected Mr. Union by the student body and another S. A. E. was senior escort; Bill Brown and Tommy Butler monop olized the control board of a local radio station; and many more Sig Alphs were active in honorary fraternities, clubs, and in sports. In addition several S.A.E. ' s were on the Dean ' s List and were outstanding scholastically. This then is our fraternity — minds, moods, motives, all varied yet harmonious. • 103 Tennessee Beta Tau of Alpha Tau Omega Founded: September II, 1865; Virginia Military Institute; Richmond, Virginia Colors: Sky Blue Gold Flower: White Tea Rose The big white house on Main Street has once again this year been silent witness to the unique personal way in which Beta Tau has brought to some sixty brothers the idealism of the National Brotherhood. A successful year is ended. The recognition of the capacities and character of the brothers of Beta Tau has been evidenced by the fact that eleven class officers, including all four presidents, were Taus; that Peter Rhea Jones has served as Student Body President and was also selected Most Likely to Succeed; that Larry Patton was elected to the yearbook editorship with Bob Agee editor of the Cardinal and Cream; that Bob Carpenter was dubbed by his fellow students " Most Popular Boy " and Dave Cundiff received their nod as Best All- round Boy; that two ATO ' s served as escorts to Mr. Union; that six other brothers were distinguished by holding the presidency of various clubs and organizations; and that others filled Student Council capacities. This year Bob Carpenter has served admirably as President of the Baptist Student Union, teamed with six other brothers as Council members. The Student Public Rela- tions Directorship has been enhanced by the wit and wisdom of Tom Murchison. Lovely Pat Andrews, sweetheart of Beta Tau, and her immediate predecessor, Miriam Watt, both received acclaim as Campus Favorites. iM Wayne Brown, WSc.

In 1958-59, the brothers again evidenced academic strength by furnishing six of the Nestor Club ' s twelve members, and by claiming R. N. Graves ' 3.0 average as part of their scholastic record. The fact that Paul Sanderfer, Tom Murchison, and Peter Rhea Jones were picked for Who ' s Who evinces this scholastic prowess coupled with qualities of character and leadership. Beta Tau was also represented in Phi Alpha Theta, national honorary history fraternity. Class plays this year saw eleven of fifteen male parts taken by Taus, with the sub- sequent fall production claiming ten brothers. Casting for the spring feature found brothers again in major roles. Four of Beta Tau ' s number have been recognized with membership in Alpha Psi Omega. All of these activities are balanced on the physical side by the varsity teams hav- ing again this year been manned principally by Taus, and by tne Chapter ' s intramural victories to date in basketball, football, and volleyball. Les Rues de Paris were never more beautiful than the night they toasted the annual sweetheart banquet; nor was Natchez Trace ever more hospitable than to Taus and their guests at the Spring Splash. These and numerous other parties highlighted the ATO social year. This tangible record is, however, only half the story, or less. For it is from far more basic achievements that these outward indications are derived; the friendships made and ideals developed in Beta Tau this year are the most important accomplishments. It is upon these that we will continue to build individually, long after the collective achievements of Tennessee Beta Tau, ' 58- ' 59, are forgotten. ■■ 5 105 ?» • Top to bottom, I. to r.: Jack Only, John Montgomery, Jerald Hill, Johnny Orr, Bill Adkerson, Eddie Hamlett, Dave Evers, Tom West, Jim JacobI, Tommy Duffer, Gary Borum, Dan Dunagan, Frank Jamison, Charles Burk- head, Jim Daniel, Bill Greene, Jerry Spencer, John Ginn, Gene Jacobi, Fred Cook, Terry Anderson, Bobby Hussey, Tommy Norton, " Sonny " Hawkins, Dan Stone, Tom Vance, Glenn Davis, Charles Wingo, Wayne Johnson, Lee Belew, Roy Coilomp, Dewey Corder.

Allen John Rose BASKETBALL The 1958-59 cage season was an exciting one for the Union Bulldogs, who supported one of the toughest schedules in Union history. To climax their regular season, the Bulldogs entered the V.S.A.C. tournament at Belmont College in Nashville. In their first game in the tourney. Union met and conquered Tennessee Wesleyan College by a score of 86-76. Upon advancing to the quarterfinals, the Bulldogs ran into an unconquerable foe on the part of Austin Peay. In regular season play, the two teams had split in two games, each winning by one point on their home court. In the third meeting of these two teams, the Governors were able to subdue the Bulldogs 86-83. For the second straight year, the Union Gymna- sium was chosen as the site for the N.A.I. A. District 27 play-offs, thus making Union host team in the tour- nament. In the first game, Union defeated Carson- Newman by one point, 66-65. In the finals, Christian Brothers College of Memphis proved to be tough for the Bulldogs, who came out on the short end of a 67-51 score. This season, four seniors, Johnny Orr, Jerry Moore, Jerald Hill and James Scott, saw an end to their bril- liant and colorful basketball careers. Jerry Moore and Johnny Orr led the bulldogs in rebounds, while Jerald Hill was leading scorer with 411 points for a 14.1 average. William Lee was second high in total points with 406, and highest in points per game with a 15.0 average. Lee and Ken Arnold led in total points in one game with 29 each. Jerry Moore led in most rebounds in a single game with 23.
