It also directs the editorial and financial policies and the staffs for these student publications. The student members, elected by popular vote of the student body, and the faculty members, appointed by the administration, elect the editor, managing editor and busi- ness manager of the Pleiad, and the editor, associate editor and business manager of the Albionian. The officers this year were Molly Engle, president; Mr. Anthony Taffs, vice-president; George Benko, secretary, and Dr. Joseph J. Irwin, treasurer. Other members were John Gilbert and Virginia Valentine. The council is the representative governing body of the Publications Association which is made up of all students, faculty and trustees of the college. It is organized as a non-profit corporation.

Mem- bers are chosen on the basis of individual ability and achievement in journalistic pursuits in college and uni- versities, by the members of the previous chapter. Although the group carries on no campus activities, it serves tO promote a greater interest in journalism among the students and encourages better publications. The faculty advisor is Dr. Joseph J. Irwin, professor of English and journalism. Mr. Paul R. Trautman is also a member. Nationally Alpha Phi Gamma has achieved distinction through its consistent adherence to the honorary basis. It has kept rigidly to its collegiate limitations and has thus retained its individuality and high standards. It goes out side the college circle to give special honorary membership to men and women of mark and distinction in journalism. albionian Polly Arbaugh, editor-in-chief, headed the staff of the Albionian this year. She was aided by Gail Gorenflo, as- sociate editor; Jack McCall, business manager; Virginia Valentine, senior editor; Duane Poole, sports editor, Patricia Roe, art editor, and staff members chosen from interested students in the news writing and news editing classes. Dr. Joseph J. Irwin served as business advisor and Mr. Anthony Taffs as editorial advisor to the book, while the Publica- tions council supervised plans and policy. Work started nearly a year ago, when editors began planning the layout and design of the book. The first job of the school year was to photograph individuals for class pictures, and to photograph the various campus organiza- tions. Each organization and student pays for pictures, which, combined with advertising funds, and an alloted budget from the college, pays the cost of the book. When photography is finished, copywriters and copy- readers begin to work, writing identifications and stories.

Only those students are eligible for election who have completed, at the end of the election year, their last two years of work at Albion college.

The elected officers include Jean Tomion, president; Loris Porter, vice-president; Jean Marcy, secretary; Joyce Dusendorf, treasurer; Virginia Wyman, historian and Ann Neffner, editor.

Ye f : } } r je le | “ | {ite { +4 1X ——— Halfback Bob Wikstrom and guard Ray Loeschner, graduating seniors, leave gaps in the 1953 line-up which will be hard to fill. Wikstrom, who scored 84 points during the season to become the state’s leading point-maker, was chosen most valuable player in the MIAA. Wik scored four times in the Hillsdale game to pick up 288 yards on 12 plays. Loeschner, whose consistent toe added a point to most Briton touchdowns, was named to the Little All-America team. His number 53 jersey has been retired and joins Ed Madjeski’s number 55 and Walt Ptak’s number 40 in the Kresge gymnasium trophy case. Madjeski re- ceived the honor and Ptak was named to the team in 1940. Guard John Porter and center Cedric Dempsey were the two big guns in Al- bion’s 1952-53 basketball line-up. Por- ter, who has been leading MIAA scorer for the last two years, became the first Albion hoopster to score over 1,000 points. He attained that mark in the Hope game as he dropped in 34 points to tie the school’s single game scoring record. Dempsey snapped the single game mark on two occasions during the sea- son. The lanky pivot man dumped in 34 points against DePauw and raised that total by four in the season finale against Michigan Normal. Porter and Dempsey finished second and third in league scoring this year. Porter was chosen honorary captain, and Dempsey was named the squad's most valuable player.

The title was a climax to the consistent improvement in Briton pigskin squads since coach Del Anderson came to the campus. Under the guidance of Coach Anderson, Albion teams have won 19 games, lost five and tied one in the past three years. The Britons’ only loss of the season was to Michigan Tech. In a driving snowstorm the Engineers defeated Albion, 21-7. Graduation cost Albion seven letter winners. Lost to the squad are Bill Armstrong, Sid Dunne, Ray Loeschner, Tom McCoy, Melvin Larimer, John Hummon and Bob Wikstrom. Armstrong was captain of the 1952 champions. Loesch- ner was elected to the Little All-America team and Wik- strom was chosen to receive the MIAA most valuable player award. The Britons, individually and collectively, made their mark in the record books. In defeating Kalamazoo to sew up the championship, they set an all-time, single-game scoring record. The Albion squad ran up 59 points while holding the Hornets to only one touchdown.

On two occasions the Britons smashed single-game scor- ing records. Albion’s 102 points against Hillsdale replaced a record set February 21, 1951, in a contest with Hope. In that game Albion defeated the Hollanders, 101-65. One week later the Britons romped over Olivet, 103-66, to push the mark up one more notch. Guard John Porter and center Ced Dempsey, both selec- tions to the 1951-52 MIAA all-conference team, upped the individual scoring record. Dempsey scored 34 points against DePauw for an all- time Albion record. Porter tied that mark against Hope, but Ced came back to match the same record against Hills- Row: Walling, Brink, Betz, Roe, Dempsey, Friberg, Buysse, Meeth, Beaver, Porter. dale one game later. In the final league tilt of the season, Dempsey pushed the mark up four points as he scored 38 points against Adrian. Albion ended the season with a 7-5 league mark. The MIAA race ended in a two-way deadlock as Kalamazoo and Hope both finished with 10-2 records. Hope edged the Hornets, 91-85, in a post season play-off. The 1952-53 season was Coach Walter Sprandel’s last as he left to take over full-time duties as dean of men. In the last 11 years under coach Sprandel, Briton teams have won 61 league contests while dropping 31 MIAA en- counters. Elkin Isaac was assistant coach and will become head mentor next season.

Albion split double-headers with each of its MIAA op- ponents to finish the season in a deadlock with Hillsdale for second and third place. A 1,200 mile spring tri netted the Britons three wins while they dropped two games and tied another. Albion journeyed to Hope for its first league encounter winning the first game of a double-header, 2-1, and losing the nightcap, 4-2, after 12 innings. After a Dutchman out- fielder smacked Bob Betz’ first pitch for a homer, the Briton hurler tightened up and allowed only five more hits to hand Albion its first league win of the season. Ced Dempsey lost a pitching duel when Hope pushed across two runs in the fourteenth inning to break a 2-2 deadlock. Albion dropped the first game of its double-header with Alma, 9-1, but came back strong in the second contest to win, 10-1. Dempsey pitched the second game, allowing only seven hits and one run, which came in the last frame. The Britons split another MIAA double-header as Hills- dale romped to a 13-3 win in the opener. Albion came back in the nightcap to edge the Dales, 7-6. Freshman Jim Murray put the Britons out in front in the opening frame with a long homer.
