It’s time to stop this nonsense From every college in the nation comes the warning, “We’re losing good professors faster than we can find them, yet our classrooms are growing more crowded each year. What will be the effect on our country, and on its citizens, if this trend continues?” The warning has sound basis. Low salaries— characteristic in teaching—are driving gifted instructors and professors into other fields, and are discouraging promising young people from taking up academic careers. Classrooms and laboratories are overflowing now with students, and yet applications are expected to double in the next 10 years. It’s amazing that a nation such as ours, strengthened and enriched by our institu­ tions of higher learning, should allow any­

thing to threaten these wellsprings of our progress. Ifs time to stop this nonsense. In a very real sense, our personal and na­ tional well-being depends on the quality of learning nourished and transmitted by our colleges and universities. They need the help of all who love freedom, all who hope for our continued advancement in science, in states­ manship, in the better things of life. And they need it now!

"Her stately tower speaks naught but power For our dear Otterbein” Otterbein


Editor Arthur L. Schultz, ’49




Many of you were generous enough to tell us how much you enjoyed the last issue of TOWERS—a pictorial viewbook. It was designed for the Admissions Office, but we felt that you would want to have a copy. The text of the viewbook was prepared for the high school student interested in college. The book was planned also to be of interest to friends of the college, and especially to the many alumni in refreshing their knowl­ edge of Alma Mater. We hope that you will keep the colorful viewbook where your friends will see it or that you will give it to some prospective student. Additional copies are available from our office.

Published quarterly by the Alumni Council in the interests of alumni and friends. Entered as second-class matter at the post office at Wester­ ville, Ohio, under the act of August 24, 1912.

Ex-Officio College Treasurer and Presidents of Alumni Clubs —




As the follotving statements indicate, the Board of Trustees, the Faculty and Administration, the Alumni, the Student Body, the Church, and the Westerville Community all join in welcoming the new President of Otterbein, Dr. Lynn W. Turner.

FROM THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES: When you were unanimously elected President of Otterbein College by the Board of Trustees on April 12, 1958, a new chapter in your own life and a new era in the life of Otterbein College simultaneously began. We earnestly pray and confi­ dently believe the new relationship will result in deep, mutual satisfaction. You now become a part of the Otterbein heritage and an advocate of her many cherished traditions. Your concern for moral and spiritual values is such that we are in no way hesitant to give into your hands the guidance of Otterbein’s future. We know that your commitment to the presidency of our college was not arrived at without, much thought and prayerful consideration. We know, too, that your task will be no easy one. It cannot be so. Remember, please, Mr. President, that your Board of Trustees will ever be willing and eager to lend you every assistance in w'hatever way is possible in the fulfillment of the high endeavor to which God has called you. We wish to share the burdens that will come to you and to rejoice with you in the forward accomplishment to which you will lead us. In this spirit of understanding and cooperation, we extend to you our warmest greeting as you assume the administrative leadership of Otterbein College, in whose interests we shall, with deep devotion, labor together. It is our earnest prayer that God will richly bless you in the days and years ahead. Vance E. Cribbs, Chairman Board of Trustees

FROM THE FACULTY AND ADMINISTRATION: Dr. Turner, the whole Otterbein family, both those on campus and those not now here, welcomes you wholeheartedly as our new president. Those of us who have met and talked with you have no hesitancy in saying we feel sure you will soon become a part of us, and we know we will get on together in fine shape. We have confidence in you as our leader, and we all want you to know that we expect to cooperate with you and help you in every way we can. To the alumni, the acting president would like to say he is delighted with the choice of the new president. As you learn to know him, I feel sure you will appreciate him more and more. Under his direction the college will increase in size and in usefulness to its students. We know you will also want to lend a hand to help your new president in his effort to make your alma mater a better college in which to educate our young people. F. J. Vance Acting President


FROM THE ALUMNI: In Paul Woodring’s recent book, A Fourth of a Nation, he says: "In a society of free men, the proper aim of education is to prepare the individual to make wise decisions.” Professor Woodring then defines the educated man as "one who can choose between good and bad, between truth and falsehood, between the beautiful and the ugly, between the worthwhile and the trivial.” Otterbein’s new president is about to enjoy the stimulus, the discipline, and the tensions involved in making decisions that range from the trivial to those that will decide the destiny of an educational institution beginning its one hundred twelfth year. I am sure that I speak for all Otterbein alumni when I wish for President Turner the wisdom and courage to dismiss the trivial and to concentrate on the important in the decisions-filled days ahead. We as alumni look to our new president to represent us and Otterbein with dignity, distinction, and devotion. In turn, we as alumni offer President Turner our loyalty, our support, and our friendship. Verda Evans, President Alumni Association, 1957-58

FROM THE STUDENTS: What is a student? Many people describe him many ways: to his family he is often a charity case; to those living close to the fraternity house, a partyboy; to the community, a pair of creased khakis, screeching tires, and homecoming festivities; to the professor, a passive object into which information and knowledge is pumped with the hope that someday it will apply. To most people he is the "coUegiate.” And to a newly-appointed college president, he is all these things and more. As you are probably aware. Dr. Turner, you’ve been discussed, wondered at, thought about, and curiously scrutinized since your first morning on campus when you were singled out as "our new President.” We’re proud to welcome you and your family to the "quiet peaceful village.” May we add our congratulations and say that we’ll do our best to live up to your expectations—you’ve exceeded ours! Duan Roth President, Student Council, 1958-59

FROM THE CHURCH: The Evangelical United Brethren Church welcomes you. President Turner. The nearly 900 pastors and 200,000 church members of the Otterbein territory and all the 3,300 pastors and 800,000 members of the whole denomination assure you of their prayers and cooperation. TTie Church says welcome because you are a scholar familiar with the price that must be paid for the pursuit and appre­ hension of truth. The Church says welcome because you have been an effective classroom teacher concerned not only with the intellectual achievement of students, which is important, but also with their total personality and Christian character. The Church says welcome because you have proved yourself a loyal Christian layman in your mature years and before that, a boy and young man active in the church. The Church says welcome because you and Mrs. Turner have established and maintained a home in which the Christian spirit prevails and from which the Christian spirit radiates. The Church says welcome because you will provide wise, vigorous, and prophetic educational guidance, along with that of the other college presidents, so that our beloved Church will have the requisite college-trained Christian leadership which the present and future demand. The Church says welcome because you are you—a leader in many roles, a useful citizen, a cultured gentleman, a patient counsellor, and good friend and devoted Christian. J. Gordon Howard Bishop, East Central Area Evangelical United Brethren Church

FROM THE CITY OF WESTERVILLE: One of the most satisfying duties of public office is the opportunity to extend an official welcome. It gives even more satisfaction when the welcome to our village goes to a family instead of visitors. So it is with real pleasure that we look forward to the arrival of Dr. and Mrs. Lynn W. Turner and Bruce. Naturally, we sympathize with Bloomington, Indiana, on losing such a fine family. An indication of how well our new president and his wife will fit into our friendly college circle was given at the Commencement reception. After being addressed as "Dr. and Mrs. Turner,” they suggested it might be easier to call them "Lynn and Vera.” Welcome to Westerville, Lynn, Vera, and Bruce! May your residence here be the happiest years of your lives. L. William Steck Chairman of Village Council Westerville, Ohio

August 17, 1957, was a very impor­ tant date for Otterbein College. This is the date when President Howard’s resignation was accepted and a com­ mittee was set up to seek his successor.

The Curriculum

Bishop Howard

With deep regret on the pan of the whole college community, we saw Dr. Howard accept the bishopric, and yet we all knew he felt this was the action he should take. The faculty too always appreciated Dr. Howard’s friendly and genuine co­ operation in all their problems. He was always willing to give full consideration to any matter a faculty member felt important enough to bring to him. The faculty appreciated the fact that he had a thorough knowledge of college prob­ lems and had confidence in his opinions and his decisions. I am sure the members of the Board of Trustees feel as the faculty does about the very great contribution Dr. Howard made over the past twelve years to the lives of students as well as faculty mem­ bers. You will agree, I am sure, that Otterbein College made many real for­ ward steps as a direct result of Dr. Howard’s term in the office of presi­ dent. We were all sorry to see him leave, but we wish him well in his new responsibilities. Already we are begin­ ning to see that he is doing a wonderful job in the office of bishop, not only for the Church but also for Otterbein as well. The Presidenl-Eleci

The committee selected to find a new president, under the able direction of Vance E. Cribbs, President of the Board of Trustees, worked tirelessly for many months screening possible candi­ dates. I am sure we are going to be very much pleased with the final result of their labors. Dr. Lynn W. Turner was elected at a special meeting of the Board of Trus­ tees on April 12, 1958. Dr. Turner graduated from Indiana Central College in 1927, received his master’s degree from Indiana University in 1932, and obtained his Ph.D. from Harvard in 1943. He spent eleven years as Chair­ man of the Department of History and Government at Monmouth College, Monmouth, Illinois. Since 1947, he has been a Professor of History at Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana.

Dr. Turner is also currently National Historian of Phi Alpha Theta, national honor society in history, and editor of The Historian, quarterly magazine pub­ lished by the society. Before moving to Bloomington, Dr. , Turner was an outstanding layman in the Evangelical United Brethren Church. At the present time he is a member of the official board of the First Methodist Church, Bloomington, Indiana. Mrs. Turner is the former Vera K. Arbogast of Monmouth, Illinois. They have three children: Veralyn, now Mis. Richard Martin of Bloomington; Sylvia, in Lincoln, Illinois; and Bruce, 11, at home. Admissions

The Admissions Committee has at­ tempted this year to be more selective in an effort to get students who will have more chance of success and there­ fore increase the number continuing their work through the junior and senior years. In spite of the fact that no schol­ arship tests were given this year, 300 young people and adults attended High School Day and 385 were here on E.U.B. Day. Enrollment this past year included 478 men and 300 women, a total of 778 smdents who were taking full-time work. This amounts to 7.7% increase over the previous year.

In the Biology Department impor­ tant revisions in curriculum were ap­ proved last year and were put into effect this year. The course in Natural Science has been discontinued; consequently many students have been taking Gen­ eral Biology. This was disastrous to some, but plans for revisions and changes are now under way which, we feel, will eliminate the difficulties and still make the course of value to the general stu­ dent as well as to those taking pre­ professional work. Members of the board and alumni who have not yet seen the improvements in physical equipment which have been made in this department should go to the third floor of the Science Building to see what has been done, and talk to the biology faculty to learn of the plans for the new curriculum in this field. You will recall the announcement last year that important curriculum changes had been made in Home Eco­ nomics. We believe these changes were good since the enrollment in Home Economics has increased. Moreover, this past semester we had a class for men in which 37 students were enrolled. The department, as you know, has been moved to the Home Economics House on West Home Street. New equipment has been installed and the department is now quite adequately situated. Danforlh Workshop

This summer the Danforth Founda­ tion is sponsoring a workshop on col­ lege problems and has invited a quartet of Otterbein faculty members to partici­ pate. Those who will represent us are Dean Joanne VanSant, Professor Charles Botts, Dr. Paul Ackert, and Professor L. Lee Shackson. A definite plan of study has been worked out, and our participants are expecting to have a very fruitful three weeks of study. The contacts thev wiU have with representa­ tives of other colleges of our size and type will be invaluable. New FM Radio Station—WOBN

Great progress was made in the area of broadcasting this year. Through the generosity of Robert B. Bromeley, ’29, and Vida Shauck Clements, ’01, a new console and an FM transmitter were purchased. The college then supplied enough additional funds and construc­ tion aid to install the equipment and

erect a 104-foot antenna on the roof of Cowan Hall. The new station, WOBN, has received its permit from the Federal Communications Commis­ sion and is now undergoing equipment tests. A formal opening is planned for the fall. WOBN will cover metropoli­ tan Columbus with hi-fidelity broad­ casts, specializing in good music and service programs to the campus and community. It will also serve as an important public relations tool of the college. Conference on Christian Higher Education

On April 8 and 9, a Conference on Christian Higher Education was held and representatives from eight of the cooperating annual conferences partici­ pated. The program theme, "The Mu­ tual Concern of Church and College,” was developed to acquaint the delegates with Otterbein College and our pro­ gram and needs. Bishop J. Gordon Howard and Dr. Harold L. Yochum, President of Capital University, were the speakers and gave very timely and thought-provoking addresses. This con­ ference met a real need in church-col­ lege relations. New Construction and Renovation

A new heating plant has been com­ pleted south of Park Street above the dam on Alum Creek, and the old heat­ ing plant will be torn down this sum­ mer. The equipment includes three coal-burning fully automatic boilers de­ veloped by Bituminous Coal Research Laboratories to compete with automatic gas and oil-fired equipment. They are the first of their kind and have been attracting the attention of people from all over the country. They are expected to save us from 1/4 to 1/3 on fuel in ensuing years. The cost of the new plant will not exceed the $300,000 amount appropriated for it. Improvements have been made in the biology laboratories and are worthy of note. These were made by our service department under the direction of Dr. Willis and Dr. Sherman. A number of biology personnel from other colleges have visited these laboratories and have stated that they are the best they have seen. The president s home is being com­ pletely renovated this summer and will provide a very satisfactory home for our new president and his family.

“Beyond The Duty Line” Dr. I. Lynd Esch

(Excerpts from the June Comnienceinem address by Dr. 1. Lynd Esch, President, Indiana Central College, Indianapolis, Indiana.)

It is a privilege indeed to have the opportunity to present a message to the members of a college graduating class. It is an unusual opportunity to give advice. But I am a bit cautious since I read the account of the college student who was taking an examination in Philosophy. One of the questions was, "Who was Socrates?” The student answered, "Socrates was a philosopher. He went about giving advice. The peo­ ple poisoned him.” Advice is some­ thing like a doctor’s prescription, pleas­ ant to give but distasteful to take. Perhaps then we should soften the blow and begin by offering our congratula­ tions to the graduates, their parents and the faculty upon this occasion. At least that will be less distasteful than advice, of which all have already re­ ceived a great deal, and such congratu­ lations are certainly in order. It is no small achievement to reach the place of graduation from college. It indicates that one has overcome many obstacles and pursued a course with steadfastness and diligence. LINES OF LIFE "The lines of life are sharply drawn” is an old adage which has been oft repeated. On occasion each of us has said, "That is where I draw the line.” Of course, we were speaking figura­ tively. But we use the word "line” in many different ways and give to it many different meanings. For this rea­ son the lines of life are very interesting. The fortune teller looks at the palm of your hand, which you have previ­ ously generously crossed with silver and —


says, much to your satisfaction, "you have a long life line.” Although we know that it is only a fictitious clair­ voyance, it gives us some sense of inner satisfaaion and comfort so that maybe the silver thus expended may not have been entirely wasted. Ever since th£ beginning of recorded history man has been making lines of one sort or an­ other, for one purpose or another. We have learned to mind, the lines of life, or to transgress them at our peril. Two boys of a very tender age as they play together have a disagreement and with a bare toe one of them draws a line in the dust and dares his erst­ while friend to cross it. The friend, not being chicken, crosses and one goes home with a blackened eye and a torn shirt. Unfortunately, we carry the same ideas into more advanced years and on a national rather than a personal level and the black eye becomes the war­ time casualty list and the torn shirt a city bombed to dust. Yes, the lines of life are sharply drawn and man trans­ gresses them at his peril. Each line of life has its own peculiar meaning. We find these lines every­ where. Some of them are material like the line fences between properties, some are less material, but with physical char­ acteristics none the less, like those which are placed on our modern high­ ways. Geographical lines have greatly influenced the course of human history. To some they have brought hardship and frustration, to others freedom, hope and oppormnity. But today we want to think of lines of life which are less

tangible but none the less real. Lines which we do not see with the physical eye in the form of a fence or a mark on a highway. Lines which we see only wnth our vision and our insight. Such are the duty lines of life. There is a philosophy of life which can be followed to great advantage in making life’s duties less burdensome. The secret of this philosophy of life is to be found in living beyond the duty line. It is difficult to do our full duty. But once we have done our duty and go beyond it, we find rich satisfaaions. By the time one has lived long enough and made the rigorous mental application which is necessary to grad­ uate from college as the members of this class have, one has learned many things. This is true even in spite of Dr. Hutchins’ contention that the reason a college graduate is given a sheep skin is to cover his intellectual nakedness. One does not graduate from a modern college without having amassed a rela­ tively large quantity of knowledge and information. Today we take it for granted that those who will receive degrees designating their area of com­ petence have factual knowledge ade­ quate to enable them to carry on suc­ cessfully in the years ahead. But may we also express the hope that in addi­ tion to that information, you have also acquired a personal philosophy of life w'hich will enable you to find joy, happiness and success. And may we suggest that these will be found in those portions of your life which you live beyond the duty life. ATTITUDES IMPORTANT

The most frequent complaint which is registered against college graduates today by those who are responsible for their employment, is not that they are ignorant. It is generally conceded that they have knowledge. The most fre­ quent complaint has to do with their attitude toward their work and toward life in general. Too many of the grad­ uates, our employers feel, are trying to get by just as easy as possible. I am sure that some of the faculty have this feeling about many of them too. They try to find out what is the least that will be required of them and then do this and nothing more. Alw^ays afraid that they will do a little more than "their share.” Afraid that they will put in an hour for which they will not be paid on Saturday. To the minds of em-

ployers they are unprofitable servants because they do only what it is their duty to do. This applies not only to the job at which they work, but also so far as community and civic respon­ sibilities are concerned. Such people live an unhappy and demanding life. They miss the real job of voluntarism which is the foundation of our democratic so­ ciety. Not only is it enjoyable to do more than is required; it is frequently very rewarding in a material way as well. EXCELLENT EXAMPLE

In the days of the depression of the thirties a young man out of college had great difficulty securing employment of any kind. It was during this period that one young man with considerable abil­ ity came seeking a job. They were scarce, but we knew where there was one opening. We sent him for an in­ terview and he made a favorable im­ pression and was employed. When he came back to report that he had se­ cured the job, we gave him a very simple admonition suggesting that he do three things beyond the routine re­ quired by the office. First, be at his desk with his work out and busy five minutes before the starting bell. Second, do no loitering in halls on his journeys from place to place, always move with speed and determination. Third, never put the work on his desk away until after the quitting bell. Within two weeks the department manager where he was working called. Said he, ' This young fellow is really a fine employee. He is always on the job when I come to work in the morning. You never see him loafing around the water foun­ tain or in the halls, and he is still working when the bell rings in the evening.” Just a little bit more than was required. The result? He is today an executive of the company with which he thus began in depression days. A PLUS FACTOR

The occupations which the members of this graduating class will enter will be quite varied. Some will preach, some will teach, others will enter into the business and professional world, some will be establishing and managing Christian homes which is one of the most important professions in the world. These different areas of em­ ployment will require different skills and abilities. For these you have been preparing during these past four years.

You should have adequate intellectual equipment to enable you to hold your own with others with whom you may find yourselves in competition. But as graduates of a Christian college you should have a plus factor beyond pro­ fessional knowledge. That plus factor is the life philosophy of Christian service beyond the requirement of daily duty. There is no occupation in America that I can think of which does not offer unlimited opportunity beyond the duty line. There you will find the air refreshing and invigorating, the climate exhilarating and challeng­ ing, and you will not be impeded by traffic congestion. Yes, "the part of the blanket which keeps you warm is the part that hangs over the edge,” and the true joy, happiness, freedom and success of life will be found in that second mile which you travel of your own volition after the requirements of duty have been performed. May the re­ wards of life be rich and abundant for each one of you in the years ahead as you journey beyond the duty line.

Pictorial View Of New Heating Plant Construction started last summer on a new $300,000 service building and heating plant south of West Park Street near the city park. It was com­ pleted in November, 1957, and boilers were installed in February, 1958. The outstanding features of this improvement are the boilers. They are fully automatic and were developed by Bituminous Coal Research Laborator­ ies to compete with automatic gas and oil-fired equipment. They are the first of their kind and have been attracting the attention of people from all over the country. They are expected to save from 1/4 to 1/3 on fuel bills in the ensuing years. The old heating plant will be torn down this summer. The new heating plant provides truly efficient heat generation. Otterbein’s heating plant burns coal in Coal-Pak boilers, developed by Bituminous Coal Research, Inc., for automatic perform­ ance plus unique simplicity of opera­ tion. The result has been savings in manpower and a spotlessly clean plant. In keeping with the modern opera­ tion of this plant, the interior has been brightened by an attractive color scheme. Interior and exterior picmres of the new heating plant are shown on this page and the next. Also, a picture of the ex­ terior and one of the interior of the old heating plant are included to show the changes and improvement.

There are five garages located on the top level of new heating plant

Lilly Endowment, Inc., Makes $10,200 Grant Film-Test Method of Teaching Receives Boost

The Development Office at Otterbein College an­ nounces the receipt of a $10,200 grant from Lilly Endow­ ment, Inc., Indianapolis, to enable the college to complete its two-year audio-visual film-text course of instruction in French. In making the grant, Dr. Manning M. Pattillo, Asso­ ciate Director of Lilly Endowment, Inc., had this to say: "We believe that the ideas and materials you are de­ veloping can be of value to many secondary schools and colleges in the improvement of their teaching of foreign languages.” The grant will pay the travel and living expenses of the three staff members who are in France this summer completing the filming of the text material. An earlier trip to France was made during the summer of 1956, at which time the first-year course and a part of the secondyear course were filmed. Other expenses for which the grant will provide the funds are the film, the film processing and the sound­ stripping, the further testing of the film-text at Otter­ bein during the next school year, the technical and sec­ retarial assistance, and related items. The time and work schedule call for the completion of the two-year course and further experimentation at Otter­ being during 1958-59- It is the plan of the college to make the film-text available to a selected list of colleges and high schools during the 1959-60 schcx)! year. Although it is too early to pass judgment on this new method of teaching, the language staff at Otterbein is im­ pressed by the fact that first-year students passed the University of Chicago Language Investigation Tests for Aural Comprehension examinations at second and thirdyear levels of achievement. The staff members who are in France this summer are Dr. LaVelle Rosselot, who has been the inspiration for and director of the project, her father, Dr. A. P. Rosselot, longtime professor of languages at Otterbein, and Miss Marjorie Lambert, who will remain in France as a Fulbright scholar during the next school year. Others who are in France assisting in the filming are Miss Patricia Axline and Miss Doris Repetylo. Miss Axline, a 1957 graduate of Otterbein, has been studying in France during the past year on a grant from the Institute of International Education. Miss Repetylo, who graduated in June, 1958, is vacationing in France and will be used by Dr. Rosselot and her staff. Otterbein s film-text method is attracting wide attention over the country. Educators from various places are visit­ ing the campus to observe the method. The United States Air Force is likewise interested and has sent observers.


Let's Prove that the Experts Are Wrongl

We are told by the experts that the summer months are not good for raising money. Why should this be? Our fuel and light bills are lower, our food costs are not as high, we have recouped our finances from Christmas and April 15 (income tax deadline), college bills are paid for those who have children in college, and other expenses are lower. Why shouldn’t we take this period to send a gift to Otterbein? The big summer expense, of course, is the vacation, and all people should plan an enjoyable and restful inter­ lude from regular jobs. Vacations, however, need not be expensive and most people can arrange them so that a gift for Otterbein is possible during the summer. Try it. The goal for 1958 is 1,700 gifts, a 10% increase over 1957. With 853 gifts already received, representing ex­ actly 50% of the goal, it would appear that we are well on the way to exceeding our goal. This would be the largest number of gifts ever received in a single year at Otterbein. The financial report up to June 20, 1958, is as follows: Number

Carrie Miles Philo Bequest

Mrs. D. W. Philo (Carrie Miles, T5), formerly a mis­ sionary in the Philippine Islands, and more recently the head resident at Cochran Hall, left $1,000 in her will for Otterbein College. She specifically requested that the money should be used to provide audio-visual equipment and manuals to assist in the teaching of Spanish at Otterbein. The Spanish Project

Miss Lena May Wilson, Assistant Professor of Foreign Languages at Otterbein, accompanied by four students from her Spanish classes, is in Puerto Rico this summer making color slides and recordings of Spanish life and conversations, which will be used in classes at Otterbein. The students are Nancy Hamilton, Jill Davenport, Patricia Speer, and Vandwilla Hackman. A Life Income

Are you interested in a guaranteed income for life? In a few weeks the college will announce in a new bro­ chure a life income plan which is somewhat different from the regular annuity plan of life income. Alumni are in­ vited to write for this booklet and to inform the Develop­ ment Office of others who might be interested in a life income.

1957-8 HONOR ROLL OF CONTRIBUTORS Making Gifts Through the

Ohio Foundation of Independent Colleges To Keep Strong Ohio Colleges Not Supported by Taxes SEVENTH YEAR, ENDING APRIL 15, 1958 TWENTY-NINE COLLEGES working together in the Ohio Foundation take pleasure in presenting to their many thousands of alumni and other friends this Honor List of corporate contributors for the year 1957-8. In THE FOUNDATION WAY, these wise business leaders have found their best opportunity to help independent colleges in all parts of the state, without the need for choosing among many com­ peting appeals for aid to operating funds. As it has since the beginning in 1951, the Foundation continues to hold membership open to all ac­ credited colleges not supported by taxes which want to be "'members of the team". The Foundation, through personal visits and mail appeals, seeks only corporate gifts—not as "char­ ity", but as a prudent investment for business leaders willing to share the cost of preparing for the business world the kind of men and women every wise executive wants as key staff members, business associates—and as patrons! Each gift is divided among 29 member schools, 60 per cent equally, 40 per cent according to en­ rollment. Reports show nearly all funds received In this way go to the improvement of faculty salaries. To their friends, member colleges commend this list for careful study — for appreciation to those whose names are on it, for help in securing gifts from those who are missing, as OFIC must move steadily forward if its member colleges are to remain strong and free.
