" ( iu II ' by Rudyard Kipling If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you, If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too; If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about, don ' t deal in lies, Or being hated don ' t give way to hating, And yet don ' t look too good, nor talk too wise: If you can dream . . . and not make dreams your master; If you can think . . . and not make thoughts your aim; If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two impostors just the same; If you can bear to hear the truth you ' ve spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools. Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken. And stoop and build ' em up with worn-out tools: If you can make one heap of all your winnings And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss. And lose, and start again at your beginnings And never breathe a word about your loss; If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew To serve your turn long after they are gone. And so hold on when there is nothing in you Except the Will which says to them: " Hold on! " If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, Or walk with Kings . . . nor lose the common touch. If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you, If all men count with you, but none too much; If you can fill the unforgiving minute XX- ith sixty seconds ' worth of distance run.

Historic Wesleyan dates back to 1855 when the college was first moved to the present location. This medieval-styled structure has stood many long years of use and service and has seen the rise and fall of men and nations that will be recorded forever in our history books. The year, 1957, marked another event very important in the history of our school. In this year, Florence State Teachers College ceased to be and the college began a new era of progress and prosperity with the adoption of the name, Florence State College. This change, seem- ingly of little significance, verified the growth and development of our school from a single-purpose teacher training institution to a publicly acknowledged multi-purpose college. Old Wesleyan Hall has seen other names come and go since the college was moved in 1855 from LaGrange to its present site. In this year of transition it became Florence Wesleyan University and soon there came the pall of war over the land. It was forced to close its doors and was not reopened until 1872 when the Methodist Church deeded the University to the state and it was reopened under the name of State Normal School. Even today some of its graduates still refer to the school as the ' Normal School. ' In 1929, a fourth change took place and the new name was State Teachers College, and thus, it remained until the summer of 1957 when the state Legislature passed a bill, started by student campaign and petition, changing the name of our school to I lorcntc State College " mmmtmt THIS IS FLORENCE STATE - Florence State is located in an area highly favorable for its growth and development. The city of Florence, Alabama, is a progressive and flourishing municipality of over 30,000 population. It is a part of the Tri-Cities area, combining it with Sheffield and Tuscumbia with all three having a total population of over 65,000. This size and location affords FSC students metropolitan advantages in a friendly and progressive community. - THE CITY AND THE RIVER, The mighty Tennessee River is probably the chief economic factor in tlie thriving prosperity of the Tri-Cities area. It has brought several large manufac- turing firms and thousands are employed in them, all of them contributing to further growth. Attraction to industries is not the only thing the Tennessee River with its large TVA dams and public utilities affords the Tri-Citics and Morence State. It is a water wonderland of recreation the year around, and to rSC students a never-ending source of healthful and wholesome fun and FOREWORD The purpose of this yearbook, and all yearbooks, is to tell a story. This is the story of Florence State during the 10=)7- ' i8 school year. The story during this past year had many facets and to tell it in all its entirety the voice of Turris Fidelis is being used. Turris, who has been around for a good many years and sees everything that goes on on his campus, is the legendary spirit which in- habits the historic towers of Wesleyan Hall. Turris ' s love for ESC and omniscient power make him an ideal narrator for our story, and as you leaf through these pages of the ' =18 Diorama the staff hopes you will like his story. It is your story . . . from the beginning until the end ... the story of Florence State during 1958. Dr. Ethelberf B. Norton Since his arrival at Florence State ten years ago, Dr. Norton has served as an able president of Florence State. He has worked always in the interest of the students, who consider him as a fricntl as well as chief administrator. In his office. President Norton serves as an under THE PRESIDENT standing, wise, and digiutied exetulive who at all times welcomes a chat with students and faculty. A I his home, he acts as a gracious host, always li.i| p to receive visits from members of the college HIS EXCELLENCY, James E. Folsom Governor James E. Folsom, by virtue of his office, is President of the State Board of Education which assumes the ultimate authority and control over our college. As a result of such a method of control by the State Board of Education, the operation of Florence State College rests in the hands of the people themselves who provide the necessary tax money for its operation. Austin R. Meadows, Secretary and Executive Officer of the State Board of Education, is State Superintendent of Education. THE ALABAMA STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION The Board James E.

It is an unusual to dedicate a book to a college but the staff felt that it was the most deserving of all the people and ideals and other suggested things to honor so by dedication. So, to Florence State College, its lofty ideals, faculty, and students and all the memories and friends it has helped us to gain, we respectfully and humbly dedicate this 1958 Diorama and we hope it will serve in years to come as a symbol of your own thanks and appreciation to your alma mater. i! - iA ▼r " w . ' VilK :i Diorama 1958 CAMPUS AND GROUNDS The campus at Florence State is a thing of beauty the year around. The buildings and grounds are steeped with a mellowness and air of tradition put here by constant use and service. What a story the legendary Turris Fidelis could tell if he would come down from atop his perch in the turrets and towers of historic Wesleyan Hall! Covering forty acres of hills and mounds, Florence State is located in a residential area near downtown Florence. It possesses a special beauty that varies with each season. Spring brings forth a myriad of colors, odors and sounds all over the campus. Who will ever forget the delicate pinkness and whiteness of the billowing dogwood trees in front of O ' Neal Hall? Stimulating freshness fills you with energy and enthusiasm. Color fills the air as the scarlet buds of the maple trees venture out and become chartreuse spires of spring. Everywhere the air is warm and humid and filled with the odor of blossoms and damp soil and there is a monotonous hum of voices, birds, and buzzing insects. An air of expectancy covers everything. Unobtrusively and quietly, summer pushes away the freshness and delicacy of spring. Darker and more intense colors come over the landscape. The trees are no longer fairy-like clouds of light green, but have become great clusters of rustling shadow-filled leaves. The air settles to a dry stillness and the sidewalks burn as you walk in the blinding glaring white sun. The rock garden, with its square little pool, offers a refuge from the heat. You can stand and look at the reflection of your image in the still crystal surface of the pool. And as you stand there gazing, fat, sleek goldfish glide silently beneath the surface of the water and the reflection becomes distorted as a cool breeze stirs between the trees and as time passes, the surface of the pool is covered with leaves of crimson, yellow, and gold. Autumn creeps in almost unnoticed as the sudden rush of new-semester activities envelops you. The leaves have blossomed forth with colors reminiscent of spring except they are more daring and loud with yellow and crimson predominating. Suddenly, the color is gone and bareness and greyness comes over the campus. Christmas brings artificial colors of lights about the grounds as the dormitories prepare for holiday seasons. As you walk about in the grey twilight, you hear the voices of students floating from the living room of O ' Neal as they join in singing their favorite carols. All about there is a feeling of warmth and cosiness The real beauty of winter comes when snow and ice cover the campus with light downy whiteness. It becomes a wonderland as the countless infinite crystals float down and land with a soft sticky hushed sound upon the fallen dry and curled leaves. The amphitheater takes on a particularly beautiful look as the shining pure white columns are lost in a swirl of waftin g white flakes and the gaunt, naked, and twisted limbs of the trees are festooned with clear and tapered icicles. The lawns and car tops are frosted with whiteness. The dull leaden sky often opens to let a spotlight of sunshine radiate the panorama with a blaze of tinsel and sequins and then retreats back under the clouds to leave you with a fleeting memory of beauty. The 19 ' ' S Diorama has tried to capture permanently some of the impressions of our campus in pictures on the following pages. The entrances and doorways are shown because they represent the most familiar and most used part of any building. Turris Fidelis views this scene cich day as the twilight fades into darkness. aihu BIBB GRAVES HALL I ■ ' m S il i Ml, 11 I Ll STRIPUN HALL LLEGE ART CENTER »s t " RIGHT: Speech md Hetirnig Cenl Blil.OW: Baptist Student Center IMPORTANT BUILDINGS AT FLORENCE STATE ' ' ■-iy i li ' ism •FLORENCE STATE IS A PRETTY TRADITIONAL COLLEGE, AND I AM PRETTY MUCH THAT WAY MYSELF.

In the categories of poetry, short stories, and essays in the Birmingham News Writing Contest entries by students from Florence State were chosen as the best in each of these three divisions. The essay also was number one in the Southern Literary Festival.

TO THE SENIORS, COLLEGE HAS BEEN LONG AND TIRESOME. THIS GIVES THEM A REASON TO WANT MY HALLOWED HALLS, BUT EACH OF THEM HAS A SENTIMENTAL THOUGHT ON LEAVING THE CAMPUS. TO THE JUNIOR, " WE ' VE GOT THIS FAR AND HOPE TO MAKE IT THE REST OF THE WAY. " TO THE SOPHO- MORE, " WE ' VE MADE IT THROUGH THE FRESHMAN YEAR, AND NOW TO GET REVENGE. " TO THE FRESH- MAN, " THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING. " BOOKS, BOOKS, BOOKS ARE ESSENTIALS FOR EVERY- ONE, PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY TO THE CHEMISTRY SEN- IOR TO INTRODUCTION TO COLLEGE FOR THE UN- DECIDED FRESHMAN. THERE ARE BOOKS TO READ TO FIND FACTS, TO LEARN " HOW-TO, ' TO G AIN INSIGHT INTO THE PHILOSOPHIES OF LIFE. BUT TO READ IS NOT ONLY TO STUDY, AND TO STUDY IS NOT ONLY TO READ. AT FLORENCE STATE, TO STUDY SHOULD NOT BE JUST TO STUDY BOOKS BUT TO STUDY OURSELVES, OTHERS, AND OUR EN- VIRONMENT. A COMBINATION OF THESE STUDIES WILL INSURE SUCCESSFUL AND PROFITABLE YEARS AT FLORENCE STATE.

THE STUDENTS HAD THEIR SAD AND MOROSE MOMENTS AS WELL AS SOME HAPPY AND CAREFREE ONES DURING THE PAST YEAR. THERE CERTAINLY WERE A LOT OF THINGS HAP- PENING ALL DURING THIS SCHOOL YEAR AND IF THE STUDENTS ENJOYED PARTICIPATING IN THEM AS MUCH AS I DID WATCHING THEM IT MUST HAVE BEEN MOST ENJOYABLE. ■RECORDED WITHIN THE FOLLOWING PAGES OF THIS SECTION IS A PICTORIAL AND WRITTEN SUM- MARY OF THE HIGH SPOTS OF THE YEAR AS FAR AS STUDENT LIFE AND ACTIVITIES ARE CONCERNED. I HOPE YOU WILL ENJOY THIS SUMMARY IN YEARS TO COME, AS OLD MEMORIES COME BACK. " • STUDENT LIFE • ACTIVI TIES • SNAPSHOTS ' What ' s happening? LION ' S DEN The high spot of Florence State. " A Whole Lotta Shakin ' Goin ' On " describes the Lion ' s Den, also a lot of talking and horsing around. Things really rocked this past year when ' Willie Staggs and the Off- Beats played in the Den in a special campaign to raise funds for an air-conditioner. The fund has grown steadily and it is hoped that by the time this book arrives we will be using it. Students go to the Den not only to dance but to do other things. Many like to sit and watch the floor show, while others prefer to watch T " V or play ping pong. The Den is operated by the Student Government Association and is easily one of the most popular spots on the campus. RMMi vnRimn ifii nvmnnnqHM ' Say that again. ' ' Now, here is the WELCOME, HIGH SCHOOLERS For a few weeks during the year the dining hall line becomes doubled in length when several hundred strange faces show up for the various academic days held on the campus. These events include Science Day, Home Eco- nomics Day, Music Festival, Lunchroom Workshops, Drama Festival, Library Science Day and various others. Tours are conducted by several student groups for the visiting high school students. Demonstrations and exhibits are other ways the hosts have of enter- taining their guests. ■Watch out, it ' ll burn ' You hegin this way ' Ah, get wild or go home. ' LET ' S GO TO THE SHOW! Any type of show may be found being presented on the Florence State campus the year round. The most frequent presentations are the talent and stunt night shows. One of the biggest shows of the year is the S.G.A. Stunt Night which last year came forth with some different laughs. Close to this is the Diorama Talent Show which is held at the conclusion of the Diorama sales. Kilby Auditorium never has a vacant chair in its periphery this night. Different types of student talent are entered in the show and sometimes the displays are amazing in more ways than one. The acts are often impromptu, which adds to the hilarity of the " goings-on, " and at other times, surprises come as the audience is called on to par- ticipate as the picture of Miss Pauline Gravlee, Dean of Women, and her gift shows. The music was too much for the audience at one show and the chairs were pushed back and the crowd went to work, dancing. " Thank you, thank you, kindly ■ " What is this? ' It ' s here somewhe I.J.

" This classic proverb gives you an idea of the variety of the dances on the Florence State campus. No mat- ter what his taste may be, the FSC student ' s appetite for a dance can be filled. Turning from the informal dancing at the den, one finds many formal dances held during the year. The Homecoming Dance is one of the biggest af- fairs of the entire school year. This is followed by Christmas Ball, the Coronation Ball, the Spring Formal, and the Senior Formal. Something new and unique that was added to the social calendar last year was the Co-ed Ball. This was sponsored by the W.S.G.A. and the girls did the asking to the dance, " setting up the boys " for a change. Although being new and the first of its kind the Co-ed Ball was probably the " most successful " dance of the year. Plans for this year ' s dance indicate that it will be even bigger. r ' v ' .T,v4i3 DRAMA AT FSC " A live wire " is the definition that will adequately fit the Florence State Rehearsal Club. They present two or three top-notch productions during each school year and the degree of polish and finish is a credit to the institution and certainly to the club ' s sponsor, Miss Gladys Shepard. This past fall, the group presented one of their best performed and best received productions ever, according to students, faculty members, and townspeople. " Death of a Salesman " was played to a capacity crowd each night and the ovations accorded the group were certainly an honor. The secret of the great success of the Rehearsal Club is defined by a simple, four-letter word called " work. " These members obliging- ly spend every spare moment of each semester " working " to make each production a perfect one as near as possible. Undaunted by hard work, the group receives a feeling of satisfaction on production nights. ' It ' s not that bad, is it? " ■Quit stuffinj; that ballot bo ELECTIONS Last year ushered in a new era for Florence State voters. This was the era of the voting machine, which was used for the first time in the election of the S.G.A. officers. The League of Women Voters worked along with the S.G.A. in furnishing these machines and the student body turned out in large numbers to work that " new " machine. There were many words spoken on behalf of the candidates for the various positions, many a heated debate on the merits of each, and quite a few anxious moments as the results were awaited by opponents and supporters. Another highlight election of the year was the poll of the student body on whether or not they wanted the name of the school changed. The student body was overwhelm- ingly in favor of changing the name and leaving the word " Teachers " from our name. The state legislature took up the issue and passed a law in the summer that made our name consistent with the wishes of the student body, Flor- ence State College. Other elections that were major ones of the year were the Homecomins; Queen, Mr. and Miss Florence State, and [r mj Miss Friene ' My next point is . ' You pull this little lev F.S.C. ' Can ' t a soul ever win? " Riding high. " LET ' S GO TO THE FAIR Around and round go the activities of Florence State students when the North Alabama State Fair has its run in Florence during the first week of the fall semester. Students flock by the hundreds out to the fairgrounds to take in the sights from the two-headed calves to Stella, with two I ' s, the dancing girl. Eating and riding are always the big things and no trip out to the fair would be complete if they didn ' t win a teddy bear. Some students pay dearly for the little bears, as they will sadly attest to. It isn ' t just the students who have a good time and at- tend this affair, though. There are the faculty members who have to take the k ' Js to the fair. ■M, i .W.U ' Mi mW,mi.«kW " .« ' j V. " i ' ■Dont breathe! R.O.T.C. AT FLORENCE STATE Among the activities engaged in by the Provost Corps, military science fraternity, is the annual fall initiation of new members into the group. This initiation is accom- panied by various haranguing moments on the part of the initiates, junior students who are going into advanced R.O.T.C. Senior members of the group muster out the many skits and pranks to the new initiates as these picture signify.

Little, but loud, the band really stirred up the spirit during the ■57 season and presented some very entertaining and suc- cessful half-time shows. They attended two or three out of-town games and really had a time. The band members themselves are closely knit and a spirit of comradeship and unity makes their group relationships very entertain- ing and sociable. For the band members these trips to other schools were the highlights of the season, because usually anything could happen and sometimes it did. Li iW n tiiUin • • i r H Sigmund Spaeth. The crowds were bigger than ever. The Students at Florence State were treated to the largest number of convocational programs in the history of the school. One of the mam reasons for this increase in the number of artists and programs was the newly inaugurated Danforth Program for the de% ' elopmcnt and growth of religious and cultural activities. The program of convocations and activities have included: Sigmund Spaeth, David H(X)ks, Didier G raeffe, Dr. Raymond Paty, Jorge Bolet, Eleanor Steber, Nelson and Neal, Players, Inc. with " The Taming of the Shrew, " Pittsburg Symphony Orchestra, The NBC Opera with " La Traviata " and others.

Members of the football, rifle, basket- , ball, baseball, and tennis teams, and cheerleaders go through this I ordeal yearly before becoming members of this group. The group has j to perform such jobs as, peanut rolling in front of Bibb Graves, I begging for money on the street, and eating food served at the ' banquet.

May Day used to be one of the college ' s most popular and biggest events of the year and in the spring of I ) ' 7 under the auspices of the W ' SGA it sas reinstated. One of the big events of the affair was the selection of the May Queen (torn the senior class. Miss Ann Bennett Hopkins of Florence was selected by popular vote and reigned over the ceremonies in the Amphitheater, May Day was a colorful and entertaining affair with its costumed folk-dancers, wouki be dramatists, band concerts, and entertainment acts. The coronation ceremonies were impressive and done beautifully in the open air of the Amphitheater. AROUND THE WORLD IN FASHIONS AT F.S.C " Around the World in Eighty Days " was a kind of symbol of the year 1957 and 1958. The movie and the song inspired idea after idea and it became a popular theme for special events. When the home economic girls of Florence State put their heads together in conference about their annual fashion show they came up with " Around the World in Eighty Minutes of Fashions. " The results of their efforts was a big success and further sparkle was added by the beauty of Alabama ' s ' 58 Maid of Cotton, Miss Martha McClinton. Unified group work and a lot of good ideas and sewing made the show especially good. Shown above are three home ec students making preparations for the big show. Standing are Jean Davis and Mrs. Noel Glasscock with Dolly Williams making an adjustment.

HisTdRr ' fotim FLICIOV 1 Doesn ' t anyone care for History? Another semester and everyone had to register again. It seemed simple Every way you looked there seemed to be a line for everything. The first line was headed tow.ird an open door m Bibb Graves Hall, where Janice Johnson was handing out grade slips. After gomg past Janice, students stand in line again in the library for another hour or two while Edith supplies them with averages — she is very conservative, hardly ever gives out an " A " average! When students start getting their classes checked, it seems that the courses they need have been closed hours ago. Naturally while they stand and wait some people (the instructors) are takmg breaks — lucky people! By the time the students get their schedules checked out, there are no chairs to sit in while they fill out the ihtck of cards rec uircd of them. Simple solution, sit on the floor if you wish to get finished in one day. What hurts most of all about registration is when they hear someone say " That will be dollars, please. " After students finished registration they welcomed a coke or a bed to " sack out ' in. The final comment of all is, " Brother, am I glad that I have to register only twice a year. " Don ' t |ump out, Jim, I was just kidding you Now don ' t ye laugh, these vows are supposed to be seriou Mother can ' t make pie like this. 122 ALL WAS FAIR IN LOVE DURING THIS WEEK! Sadie and her gang took over for one week and femininity and ' wiles were on the rampage. Gals did the ' axing and the payin, ' much to the males delight and only the latest in Dogpatch fashions were in style during the week, especially on the day and night of the big hoe-down in the gym. Sadie Hawkins Week is sponsored by the WSGA and held annually in the fall. The highlight of the event comes with the big dance in the gym which has appropriate Dog Patch decor. Hog callers and pie eaters are the heroes supreme of the night and everybody gets in the show with the sack races and other games. The tall tales really got taller than ever this year and the Dogpatch characters abounded and the selection of the best ones was a real task. Skinny boys had their day because of the price of admission to the dance — two cents per inch around the waist — and to be paid by the ladies. ttle bigger Mrs. MacFarland, or Mama Mac as some ca her, is in charge of dorm hfe and activities. Bull sessions, card games, and all other typical dorm activities cease one night each semester when the coeds of Florence State invade the heretofore for- bidden portals for open house. Keller Hall ' s open house is one of the big social events of the campus and the boys get a chance to show off their rooms and often some of their handiwork as pictured. • m % ' ' - Oh. so that s XV 1 )nc from the othf H " s with dorm mother and parents from home xf Boys, we have got to cut this noise down!

Pat, are you sure that is ginger ale? Pretty fiower, isn ' t it? Anyone care to go dancing with Mammy Yocum.- ' Upon request by the Diorama staff these Powers Hall girls gathered together the pictures and snaps you see on these two pages. Powers Hall has a deceptive quality in that it is the quietest of the girls dorms. But as these pictures prove and the comments from the girls who live there, outward appearances do not necessarily show what goes on in the inside. These girls really know how to live it up and sometimes do so to the consternation of their housemother, Mrs. Mabel Dent. The crazy things that go on in college dormitories are fantastic and often silly to the outsider, but college and dorm life go together to form some of the most entertaining and unforgettable years of a student ' s life. Vt ' c II stare those Freshmen now. WILLINGHAM HALL AND THE " WILLYCATS ' The WiUycats are synonymous with high spirits and dormitory pride and when it comes to winning elections and other forms of competition on the campus, students look for Willingham to be on the top of the list. These girls with their stick to itiveness and hard work have won the Homecoming dorm decorations for the past three years and placed in the top with their skits at the annual SGA Stunt Night This year the girls were under the supervision of a new housemother who gamed instant and complete respect, cooperation, and admiration from them. Mrs. Tipton and her ' tea and coffee parties ' were the hit of campus with everyone who happened to be passing by and was invited in. Willingham Hall might be characterized by the old saying in revised form, " Old Willycats never die they just fade away " (and are replaced by new kitties each fall). Willycats and watermelon !

" and etc., and exemplifies the spirit and rivalry shown by the girls ' dorms at FSC. O ' Neal Hall is the largest of the girl ' s dormitories and a kind of campus center. The college dining hall is located on the first floor and after supper the students gather to talk, joke, and sing together. The Lion ' s Den is located in the basement and the girls on the upper floors never cease to enjoy hanging out of the windows and watch the passers-by going to the Den. O ' Neal is especially active in campus activities and are always in evidence at the football games with their waving white gloves. They have their fun and love it and will never forget those ' moments to remember ' of the life and events of living in O ' Neal.

An atmosphere of quietness and calmness sur- rounds the whole buildmg and the hoys who live there speak of it with pride and contend it is the best. As in all instances things aren ' t always quiet and they have their noisy moments and mischievous moments. The television set is an addition of the last year or two and is one of the chief amusements in the dorm. As typical of most boys rooms, the walls are covered with pin-ups and calendar art and examples of handicrafts and art work are also in evidence. JC■ l. t kin J Mt i th. Just daydreaming! Many of the day students spend their free time studying. Where? In their cars. DAY STUDENTS - F.S.C. TRAVELERS Cars, riding, and waiting and passing away the idle hours and many other things are part of the day for the commuting students at FSC. The majority of our students hve in the local area and have a different slant of view toward college life. What to do ' between classes often constitutes a problem to them. Some study, either in parked cars or in the library or others while the hours away in the Little Drug, talking and playing bridge, or gossiping and preening (the girls that is) in the ladies ' lounge.

The big event of the fall season, Homecoming is a yearly get-together for old grads and the students. For most of the students it is a lot of work, as well as fun, and they spend many long laborious hours working on the floats and decorations. Willingham ' s ship rocked its way to first place in the dorm decorations for the third straight year and the Fresh- man class won the float prize. The annual barbecue was a big success and as tasty as ever. Following the game and the supper the big Homecoming Victory Dance was held in the gym and the Highsmith combo furnished the music for the capping of the day ' s activities. Betty Artis, Florence junior, reigned over the activities of the day. David Robinson. Hamilton senior, was the student Co-Chairman and Mr. H. A.

It is a yearly program planned by a student-faculty committee and is designed to promote broadening and maturing of a persons religious perspective. The theme of this year ' s event was " The Col- lege Student in the World Crisis. " The three facets of the world crisis, scKial, political, and spiritual, were examined under the leadership of these distinguished campus visitors, Mrs. Induk Pahk, lecturer and President of Berea in Korea Foundation: Dr. Leroy E. Loemker, chairman of the Department of Philosophy at Emory Univer- sity; and Dr. Eric C. Rust, Professor of Christian Apologetics at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Each year more and more stu- dents brought their cars to school and finally, this year, with the help of the state, a new plan for park- ing was devised.

Nominated by the staff, the ten girls appeared at Rogers Hall burdened with fmery and all types of beauty aids. The judging was done in person and each girl appeared alphabetically before the judges m three types of apparel.

Only the most daring ventured out at first, but finally a few more brave souls dared to brave the cat calls and whistles. With the advent of summer they were more generally accepted and became more and more common around the campus, especially at the Den. Shown above are two of the ' First ' in their questioned attire.

This year the beauties were nominatcci by the Diorama staff and not by popular student vote as in the past and the final five were selected in person. No distinctions were made as to classification and the results showed four freshmen and one sophomore in the top five. The queen of beauty of 1958 is Miss Janet Jensen, a freshman from Sheffield. Janet made a very definite impression upon the judging panel as she appeared before them in swim suit, street dress, and evening gown. As pictures prove, Janet is an exceptionally attractive girl, a perfect choice for the Diorama beauty of the year. The four runners-up are listed alphabetically and there IS no significance to their order. They were selected on their over-all appearance in the four phases of judging as was the winner. The formal photos used on the following pages were the ones used for judging on photogenic qualities. Miss Marlene Adkins, Talladega freshman. Miss Marilyn Branyon, Fayette freshman; Miss Eleanor Dillard, Florence freshman; and Miss Nobel Reeves, Vernon sophomore; were these four runners-up. B fm ' n ; the luJpinc process whuh was helJ privaid Janet Jensen, a freshman from Shef- field, is a bundle of beauty from any angle or way you look at her. This young lady is a real queen deserving of her title. ,— - U» • MISS JANET JENSEN QUEEN OF BEAUTY 156 m % i ' - ' i I 1 DIORAMA BEAUTY • MISS MARLENE ADKINS 158 " m DIORAivlA DLAAu TY • MISS MARILYN BRANYON 1 DIORAMA BEAUTY • MISS ELEANOR DILLARD 160 DIOkAMA BLAUTY • MISS NOBEL REEVES MR AND MISS FLORENCE STATE MR. DAVID ROBINSON — Mr. Florence State of 1958 is a senior from Hamilton majoring in social science and minoring in English. David has been exceptionally active in campus activi- ties in four years at FSC. Perhaps he is best known for his association with the Flor-Ala. He began working on the staff his freshman year in the capacity of sports editor. He moved up to the job of Co-Editor in his second year and for the last two years has been Editor-in-Chief. Other activities he has participated in have been FTA, Diorama Staff, Wesley Fellowship, Inter-Presidents Council, Sigma Sigma Kappa, and several important committees. Honors won include Who ' s Who, Hall of Fame and others, and of course the title of Mr. Florence State. David ' s popularity and qualifications made his selection for this honor measure up to the high standards set for the person who will represent FSC. 9 MISS JANL MILLS— Miss Florence State of 1958 is a senior from Vernon majoring in English and minoring m biology. Jane has been one of the most popular girls ever to receive this honor at FSC. She has a highly commendable record for her college career both scholastically and activity-wise. Jane has been seen most in the role of FSC ' s peppy cheerleader, always ready to cheer the team on. She has been a cheerleader for the past two years. Her other activities include Beta Beta Beta, English Club, WSGA, SGA, and others. She served as president of the WSGA and Beta Beta Beta. Honors won include Who ' s Who, Homecoming Court in ' 57, Beauty Winner " 57, top ten finalists in ' 58 Diorama beauty contest. Pretty, talented, and intelligent, Jane is more than qualified for her title. A really big affair of the year, the selection and coronation of the campus royalty provides a lot of life and entertainment. The Coronation Ball is the big feature and is sponsored by the Flor-Ala each year which goes all out to make it really big. Papa John Gordy, who proved so popular last year at the Coed Ball, provided the music in a New Orleans night club setting. This dance introduced several new innovations never used before like the bar where refreshments were sold, pretty and curvaceous cigarette girls, and tables arranged night club style around the band. A large and enthusiastic crowd attended and during the intermission Mabel Ingram entertained with her piano talent and song. The presentation of the court and the reigning couple went smoothly and impressively and Mr. Lawson Smith, presi- dent of the SGA, performed the coronation. Miss Barbara Brown was the mistress of ceremonies. The Coronation Ball, declared a success by all was perfect from the beginning until the end and was a fitting tribute to the Royal Couples. o fc MR AND MISS FSC MR.

Led by the editor, Maurice Reece, and the business manager, Alex Couch, the 1958 Diorama Staff has worked many long hours to bring this book to you. Those servmg on the Editorial Staff this year : Yearbooks, yearbooks, that ' s what Maurice Reece, EDITOR of the ' 58 Diorama, had on his mind most of the time.

THE ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT . . . The Florence State Department of Athletics has soared upward in great respects in its role of intercollegiate sports since getting on its feet after World War 11. Since coming to Florence in 1949, coaches Hal Self and George Weeks have built Florence State football into a recognized power in small colleges of the South. 1957 saw the recognition of football power here extend into the Northern part of the nation as well. Morningside College of Sioux City, Iowa, came to Florence State as the champions of Northern small college football. The entangle at Coffee Stadium between the Morningside Maroons and the Florence State Lions saw the Lions reverse the outcome of the War Between the States, as the Maroons fell by the tune of 40-0 to the Lions. The early days of 1958 saw the Lions add another step in their ladder of football success. Athletic Director H. A. Flowers announced the addition of FSC ' s first big time football foe. Lumpkin becomes FSC ' s third active i The foe is the University of Vanderbilt — one of the Southeastern Conference ' s most powerful ' teams. The game is to be played in Nashville, Tennessee, on November 21, 1959. Another sport that has risen to the top of the ladder here is Tennis. Only last year was Tennis recognized as a ma|or sport on the FSC campus. The Tennis Team, under coach Dr. Roland Dickinson, responded ith a regional championship and a trip to the National Touma- lent in Beaumont, Texas. 222 fc - - ■f i ' w Asi ' Roger Burdgc.

TENNIS TEAM - SPRING 1957 The 1957 Florence Stale Lions Tennis Team proved to be one (if the brightest spots in the athletic program. The netmen finished the season with a mark of nine wins against five losses (one of which was a practice game with Murray Stale). That record was good enough for the Lions to be the Southern Regional Champions in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Tournament ai Beaumont. Texas The following gives a summar ' of each individual player and the season in general.

BASEBALL 1957 Bmuhr Ch impion LARRY GRAM The year of 1957 saw the baseball forces of coach George Weeks go under the dam three times more than they were able to win and finish the year with a 7-10 record. The Lions found their biggest trouble in the hitting depart- ment. Only two regulars were able to break into the mythical .300 category. Second baseman Larry Gram paced the hitting parade with an outstandmg .396 mark, while John Bush hit safely 17 times out of 52 for a .327 mark. The only other Lion in the .300 bracket was pitcher Bill Godsey with a .312 percentage in 16 trips to the plate. The pitching department found two lefthanders carrying the load. Tommy Schell won three and lost the same and Bill Godsey brought home two and lost as many. The fall of 1957 found the slick fielding shortstop of the Lions putting his name on a $3999 contract with the Birmingham Barons. That shortstop was Max Burleson, the Little All- American football player of 1956. While losing ten and winning seven, the Lions totaled 96 runs to the opponents ' 105. Lary Gram led the home team in runs scored with 19. LIONS BASEBALL 1956 — FIRST ROW: Don Littleton, Rov McBee, Jack Redwine, Tommy Schell, Bill Godsey, Ronnie Pace, Ed Bridges.

A. (Eddie) Flowers, Florence State offers an intramural league for both men and women. Coach Flowers heads the men ' s league, while Miss Nancy Coe Vance directs the women ' s Athletic Association. This year nine teams entered the men ' s intramural basket- ball league. The league drew student appeal from all parts of the campus. Second Floor Keller " A " and the football team were co-leaders in the first round of league play which ended a week before press time. Both teams ended with a record of eight wins and one loss. The league will continue for the first part of the second semester — until baseball season begins. The intramural program offers an opportunity for those people that cannot go out for varsity sports to participate in athletic activities. The men ' s basketball league was especially rich with good players this year. Some of the top players as far as scoring went were: Don Holt, Kile Holiday, Jimmy Masdon, Pete Bailey, Bill Jones, John Chisholm, Jonny Landers, Carl Holiday, Larry Yancey, and Max Burleson.

The football Lions of 1957 were picked to be a small college football power in the Southland immediately after the season of 1956 when it was evident that a letterman would return at every position and the Lions had won their last five games. At the first of the 1957 campaign, the Lions were far [ from living up to their name of being a small college power. ] The season began with a 26-0 loss to Middle Tennessee State, j a team that went 10-0 for the season, and battling hard to regain some of their prestige, the Lions traveled to Tennessee j Tech the following week and dropped the Golden Eagles by a score of 20-0. I After Tennessee Tech, injuries began to tell on the Lions as they dropped three straight by a touchdown or less. The three defeats were to Murray State 7-0, Arkansas State 15-13, and to Southeast Louisiana College 21-19. After the loss to Southeast Louisiana College, the Florence Staters upset East Tennessee State for a Homecoming crowd 19-13 and then roared home with a perfect record for the remaining part of the season.

The Tennesseans scored once in the second period, once in the third, and capped off a successful night in the final canto with two tallies. Operating from the single wing offense, which is always slow at the first of the season for coaches Hal Self and George Weeks ' Lions, the Lions were never able to muster an offensive threat throughout the entire game. Middle Tennessee fumbled five times and Florence recovered five times. Four of the fumbles were in Middle Tennessee ' s territory. After each fumble, the Raiders tightened their defense and the Florentines could not go.

September -I — In a lomplcic reversal ot form. Florenie State soundly thumped Tennessee Tcih, 00. in a siartlinf; upset here tonight. The Lions, underdogs by two touchdowns at the kickoff. stunned a irowd of 6.000 with their determined tactics. The Florentines went after the highly-touted Tennessee team as if they were holding them personally responsible for the humiliating licking by Middle Tennessee last week. And tonight, they lived up to the opinion of Coaches Hal Self and Gctnge Weeks that they were the " besf in the history of FSC football: the blockers blocked, the tacklers tackled, the runners ran and the passers passed. Responsible for touchdowns were tailbacks Max Burleson and lack Redwine and quarterback Ron Meeks. But. they couldn ' t have done a thing had it not been for the bruising line play by the Lion fronfals. Meeks went over from the one in the first period. Burleson streaked 33 yards in the second quarter and Redwine went off tackle from the three for the final tally. Bill Godsey added two conversions. In the line. Hal Sisson. Hugh Harrison. L. C. Fowler. Teddy Hargetl. Sherrill Smith stood out among a host of fine performers. Meeks and Bendall both backed the line well and Burleson was outstanding in the secondary. Burleson also was the outstanding runner with 77 y,irds in 1 ' i tries. Redw ine. Burleson ' s tailback sub. had 50 in 1 ' i tries — and came through with pass strikes at crucial moments, complet- ing 3 of 7 for 31 yards.

The defeat was a bitter one for the Lions, who played excellent football, and the second of the season. The Racers moved for 80 yards midway of the final period and the all important touchdown. For three periods it was all Florence State. Then in the final quarter the Racers started moving and it was too late for the Lions. The injured tackle corps suffered even more as Co-captain Hal Sisson was ejected from the contest in the movement and Florence ended up with limping linemen Bill Barrett and Hugh Harrison trying to man the slots. The injuries hurt throughout. F ullback Carroll Daniels didn ' t play a minute. Tailback Max Burleson was hurt early in the third quarter and didn ' t see action until the waning minutes. This left the load on reserve. Jack Redwine, who played an excellent encounter.

" Well, this is almost the end of the book and my running commentary is just about finished, but you know this year at Florence State has " left lifetime memories with you. Not all of these memories took place here on the campus. They involve events, people, and places apart from the school but still have an indirect as well as direct bearing upon the students and faculty. I thought it would be of some value to you in future days when you are looking back upon the year of 1958 at Florence State. . . . Certainly you will never forget the Little Rock incident which had such profound effect upon our nation and educational system . . . Not quite so earth-shaking in its profundity (but still quite shaky) was Elvis Presley ' s rise and effect upon some of our more rock and roll minded coeds . . . Education came in for its share of discussion and furor and the national and international political set-up reached a fever-peak of out-of-this-world anxiety when the Russians launched Sputnik I . . . Never to be outdone for long, the U. S. came back a few months later with the Explorer or popularized " Uncle Samnik. " A note of interest could be injected here in that it was developed and partially built in the Tennessee Valley area . . . Staying within the confines of the world, but still reach- ing dazzling heights was Mike Todd and his movie, " Around the World in Eighty Days. " The song, the movie, and everything connected with it was popularized in different ways here on the campus and the whole nation . . . For something really out of this world the boys at FSC had Jayne. The most popular picture in boy ' s dorms this year was Jayne Mansfield (And the girl couldn ' t help it.) . . . Neither could the girls in the dorms help getting out of hand every once in awhile. It ' s just natural to want to act up every so often . . . " Tammy, " " Love Letters in the Sand, " " Fascination, " and " Lovin ' You " are some songs that were especially popular here on the campus . . . " Lets po to the show. " one of the favorite phrases of students, was used most often with the movies. " Tammy and the Bachelor, " " An Affair to Rememhcr. " " Lovin ' ' ou. " " Oklahoma, " " The Ten Q)mmand mcnts. " and " Peyton Place. " The latter was the talk of the campus (and the nation) both in movie and book versions . . . The rage here this year was rock and roll. It reached a peak similar to that of the Charleston of the twenties. ' Some of the songs were: " Short Fat Tannie, " " Bony Maronie, " " Jail house Rock, " " Flatfoot Sam. " and hundreds of others . . . The leading campus exponents of R and R were Willie Staggs and the Off-Beats who played in the Den on Tuesday nights . . . Making a different kind of record was FSC. Florence State ceased to be FSTC and became FSC and initiated its first graduate course in education . . . The athletic program rose a step with the signing of the football contract to play Vander- bilt University in ' y and with Bill Lumpkin ' s signing with the New iork Giants ... On the national football scene our own state college. Alabama Polytechnic Institute, was the first in the nation ... In the way of culture, students were exposed to the greatest number of convocations and programs in years. For the third straight year the Players, Inc. proved to be favorites of the students . . . Basketball at FS( came in for its share of criticism from students and local people alike . . . Industry brought added prosperity to the Tri-Citics area. Ford ' s multi-million dollar plant and Reynolds ' expansion program created new busi ncss and economic growth . . . The TVA development started its new thirty-five million dollar lixk ex pansion during this year . . . Another marked point of expansion and development was the academic pro gram under its second year of guidance by Dean Allen (I think the students will verify the rising of the educational level at FSC) . . . Students, with all their different opinions for these things, still held favor able opinions for each other. This year I saw ]uite a few marriages of students Those couples have left or will be leaving soon, making way for new students as thev ilepart .So. I II turn my attention on this ' iiiinc year ami see .hat kind of college life those students arc going to lead S ' - -v-s.H, THE AMPHITHEATER THE ALPHA AND OMEGA THE END " WELL, MY PART IS OVER AND YOU WILL NEVER KNOW JUST HOW MUCH I HAVE ENJOYED DOING MY LITTLE PART ON THIS 1958 DIORAMA. I AM REALLY PROUD AND HONORED TO HAVE BEEN A PART OF IT. " " AS YOU HAVE ALREADY GATHERED THROUGH MY OTHER NUMEROUS AND MEANDERING STATEMENTS, FLORENCE STATE COLLEGE IS MY VERY EXISTENCE. I AM A SORT OF PERSON THAT JUST FEELS THAT WHEN YOU HAVE BEEN AROUND FOR AS LONG AS I HAVE THE COL- LEGE DEPENDS UPON YOU AND I FEEL IT IS MY OBLIGA- TION AND DUTY TO KNOW EVERYTHING AND EVERY- ONE AT ESC AND THE MORE I LEARN ABOUT IT (YOU KNOW YOU NEVER CEASE TO LEARN THINGS IF YOU LIVE TO BE A THOUSAND YEARS OLD) THE MORE I LOVE IT.
