A crimson flush on the eastern horizon
augers the downing of a sunnier era ,in
Alfred's history. For one hundred years
the heavens have shed a benign light over
this university which, like a healthy tree
in a salutory climate, has rooted itself
firmly and spread its branches outward
and skyward. Destined for greater pros-
perity she shall thrive to a yet more
marked degree in the years toxcome,
going forward and growing upward till
the ancient pyramids are reduced to dust
As the class of l937, the first to stride
forward into the roseate dawn of Alfred's
second century, takes its place in the
world outside, it shall prosper in the
secure knowledge of its university's
eternal and glorious future.
The i937 KANAKADEA to Miles Ellis
Drake, Dean of Men of Alfred University,
whose loyal cooperation and omnipresent
spirit of helpfulness have wrought into
this institution a unique bond between
the Administration and the Students. To
Dean Drake then, with the firm assur-
ance that as Alfred embarks on the
second century of her infinite voyage he
will continue to be among those who
stand on the bridge, we are proud to
dedicate this volume.

Senior Class History
Four years as students at our Alma Mater-Frosh, Sophs, Juniors and
Seniors and now, the finish of our college courses is in sight. Our four years
in this beloved institution have left its indelible stamp of reminiscences upon
us. None of us will say he's perfect but we will grant that great noticeable
changes have come over us. As Frosh, we were "green." We seemed insig-
nificant, compared to the towering upper-classmen, to the Class of '35,
we were deadly enemies who possessed that awful stigma of coming from
our respective secondary schools after they had. Frosh athletics were entered
into and our teams emerged many times wearing the wreath of victory.
Campus life and scholarship took their respective allotment of our valuable
time and we soon discovered further possibilities in our realms of conquest.
Our progress continued on through our Sophomore and Junior years. At
this time, we sponsored the KANAKADEA, which besides being a literary
and financial success, was an innovation in style and presentation.
Finally, our Senior terms entered on declining scholarly years. Sophisti-
cation, grave, and model were words that would be inserted in a perfect
description of us. Responsibilities of leadership in fraternity, sorority and
campus government found us patiently waiting, willing and well prepared for
executive duty. Organizations took on new life, the Student Senate reas-
sumed its rightful power and dignity, traditions were revived, canes and
swagger sticks became symbols of coveted honor, the Black Knight reappeared
under Senior domination, again a much disputed symbol of even class superi-
ority over odd classes, Senior socials received that extra touch of smoothness
and in all, everything went perfectly.
Shortly the "Song of the Bell" will toll out, over the green pine covered
hills overlooking the peaceful valley of Alfred, its last call of the college year
and, in cap and gown, slowly and stately, in response to its tolls, our class will
enter, in double file, old Alumni Hall to receive our hard earned degrees.
What will pass in our minds as we tread this "last mile" of our collegiate days?
To some, friendship made in Alfred will be most missed, our athletic
teammates, fraternity brothers or sorority sisters, professors, townspeople
and others. Then, too, our activities will be discontinued and new activities
in the outside world will have to be assumed. Our organized pursuit of
knowledge will be at an end for some of us. All of us though, as the class
meets in entirety for the last time, will realize that the old spirit that inspired
Alfred's Kenyon, Allen, Main, Davis, and Titsworth, will soon only be a heritage
of the past. ln plain language, "Alfred does get one!" What it is, is hard
And now farewell, may Alfred remember its Centennial Class, as its
Centennial Class remembers its ideals, friendships and spirit. May our
success as a class in Alfred University be transposed to the outer world and
may we carry her banner far and wide.

History ol Class ol i937
We, the class of l937, represent the first class of the second century of
Alfred's higher education. The wonderful ideals of years past are behind us,
new precedents must be established.
We shall be remembered athletically by the victorious season of our
freshman basketball team which won every contest in a fourteen-game
season. We look back with pride to their still unequalled feat. A
The girls of the class of '37 have done their part in sports. In their
sophomore year they were the undefeated champions in the Women's inter-
class League, winning the new trophy. .
We bore the brunt in the "frosh circus," being the last class to be
"worked upon" and assembled for the amusement of the upperclassmen.
We gladly dedicate our last performance to the curtailment of this event.
The class annual production this year ushered in new ideas. Instead
of producing an event of the same nature of past years, we believe, we have
innovated a new trend. This year's production consisted of an amateur night
in which much hidden talent among the student body was brought to the sur-
face. The show was a financial and dramatic success. Next year, we hope
another idea will be worked out and enjoyed.
Again, we have delved into iunior act'ivities of the past and picked up
the still reins of the abandoned iunior prom and revived the dormant idea.
Tradition must be kept.
Under our new plan this year, the KANAKADEA will be distributed to all
students. With this in mind every effort has been put into the book to
make it a worthy memento of collegerdays, to be kept in fond remembrance
by each student. That it may be cherished and enioyed by all is our fervent
hope and honest ambition.
From the ranks of our fair co-eds, this year's ceramic queen has been
chosen and several of her attendants are likewise of this class. These we
We feel ourselves extraordinary in another way. We have been under
the guidance of three deans and under the administrative hands of two
presidents. We learned much, may we profit by it.
Since our admission in l933, the new l-lall of Physics has been built on
our campus, making State Street even more attractive than the new College
of Ceramics and new Bartlett Dormitory had already made it. Even our
landscape has been changed during these three years. Thousands of trees
have been added to our campus and many of our old ones were ruined by the
ice storm. When we visit here in our alumni days we will see many other
changes and improvements, since Alfred is always progressing.
ln scholastic and extra-curricular activities, we hope we have fulfilled
the duties of our class' but what is more, we hope to plot new paths in these
beginning days of Alfred's second hundred years, paths equal and courage-
ously we even say, superior, to those already glorious trails of our predecessors.
They have done much, we can only hope to do and have done, their worth
has been proved, ours is to be. 1

More than a year behind us and less than three to go before we reach
our goal-caps and gowns-graduation.
We gathered here, from five states, in September of nineteen thirty-four.
After filling out innumerable blanks, taking our entrance examinations, and
meeting the faculty at a reception in Social Hall, we were ready to start
our college education.
We were burdened by the newness of black ties, black socks, and green
hats that had to be tipped to anyone who looked like an upperclassman.
We heard tales of Campus Court and didn't know whether to disbelieve
them or act a bit afraid.
As rushees of fraternities and sororities, we were befriended by many
and for about six weeks we had weekly parties at the Greek letter houses.
ln November, many of us were pledged to fraternities or sororities to further
carry on their names and ideals.
Even after the fraternities had pledged their potential members, friend-
liness to us, as Frosh, continued and we realized the prevalence of Alfred's
primary tradition-friendliness among her students.
ln the first month of the new year of nineteen thirty-five came our first
taste of college final examinations. A very slight minority failed to make
the grade and the rest of us, minus black socks, marched forward into the
second semester of our college life.
As the latter part of May approached, so did "moving up" day and thus
came interclass warfare known as the Frosh-Soph fights. We, then the
Frosh, did most of the clothes ripping and paddling and won decisive victories
in all our encounters with the Class of '37, The arrival of "moving up"
day permitted us to shed green hats and walk on campus grass, feats hardly
dared before that day when we became sophomores and looked at the world
as a kinder place to live in.
Our freshmen cross country team won most of its meets, the football
team made out favorably, in basketball we came out ahead and we had an
unbeatable track team. In this yeor's varsity squads we have placed twenty-
one men, not including track possibilities.
After our vacation had exhausted itself, we returned to Alfred in the
fall of nineteen thirty-five. Some of last year's classmates had dropped
by the wayside but there are still over six score of us pushing forward.
This year we proved our prowess by attacking and capturing "Little
Amby," most of him anyway, from the Frosh who came by him in an illegal
manner. We showed our physical superiority by defeating their basketball
Our campus activity, for the time we have been here, has caused the
rest of the college to sit up and take notice of the class of '38. We leave
behind us new accomplishments, athletically and scholastically, for the
oncoming classes to shoot at.
We feel that so far as we have gone, we have worked as a group to
better our class and our college and we will continue in those endeavors until
graduation sends us on our respective ways.

Behold the class of l939. We came, we saw, and we salute our new
found Alma Mater. We have been oriented in Alfred's centennial year.
We recall but faintly the incidents of our former life since we have come
to live with traditions "neath the watch-care of sentinel pines."
We have seen rejoicing revert to disappointment when dome nature un-
leashed her fury on an unprepared community. Long will we remember the
havoc which was wrought when that storm maimed our trees and delayed our
Saint Patrick's Festival.
We can recall our prowess on the field, on the track, and on the court.
We fought for the school and class and by that fighting we signified our will
to sustain the school.
We cherished the friends that we met in those rush parties of long ago.
Many of us are joined to the members of the Greek letter houses as brothers
and sisters with bonds that are never to be broken. Fraternities and sororities,
you helped to give us our start. We salute you.
We point with pride to the loyalty which we possess. We have cheered
each succeeding team with increasing fervor and are proud to take our places
in our school as members of the sophomore class with a spirit which we hope
will be a credit to our Alma Mater.
Ever in our minds will linger those bitter yet pleasant memories of our
freshmen struggles. The longest, most dreaded, and severest combat was
waged with Campus Court. The battle was long because it was renewed at
every meeting of that domineering body, dreaded because of the stories of its
conquest had spread far and wide, and severe because we always got the
worst of the session. The court does not know it, but we really enioyed their
sessions and we are willing to vouch that they live up to their slogan.
"May lady lucky have mercy on any erring frosh, for we certainly will not."
Our first introduction to the sophs was a flag rush in the mud between
the halves of the Defiance football game. We were soon convinced that the
sophs were not to be dreaded when we encountered them the second time be-
tween the halves of the Saint Bonaventure basketball game. This time, how-
ever, instead of swamping them we split the prize with them. The unfortunate
prize was the wooden idol, Amby.
While we carried on scholastically and athletically, the largest class in
Alfred's history managed a round of social activity. The men of the dorm
started the whirl with two dances in the fall. The late winter sow our informal
party, the Frosh Leap. We welcome Spring with our formal dance which com-
pleted our social activities in this gala year. V
With our record behind us and on open field ahead, we of the class of i939
may well go on with our toes on the mark, our eyes on a star and our hearts
with our school.

Alfred University gridmen, faced with a stiff schedule, sought gallantly to leave
a good record behind them for the. fall of i935 but were forced to accept the arbitrary
decision of the fates in two victories and five defeats. Greater man power made the
decision in four of the five losses.
With Coach John K. Cox instilling a fighting spirit in the Saxon eleven in his first
year as substitute for John Galloway, the Alfred team made an auspicious opening in
two home meets at Merrill Field. The Saxons scored a 7-2 win over Adrian and a l3-0
win over Defiance, Continuing, Alfred lost four disheartening contests to North-
eastern, St. Bonaventure, Clarkson, and Niagara and dropped to Buffalo in one of
those last-minute incidents which fill the Book of Sport.
ALFRED 7 - ADRIAN 2
The Saxon gridmen opened their i935 season under the floodlights of Merrill Field
with a spectacular victory over Adrian 7-2.
The field, a sea of mud, handicaped the offense and defense of both teams and
the playing was sluggish throughout till Alfred put on its scoring drive in the last
minutes of the game. During the first half of the game the play see-sawed between
the 30-yard lines.
ln the third quarter, the Michigan visitors showed the possibilities of their strength
in a fast passing and kicking exhibition which left them on the Saxon five-yard
marker. Alfred's huskies, with their backs to the goal, tightened their defense and
repelled the determined drive of the visitors' taking the ball on downs.
The ball, inches from Alfred's goal, forced Alfred to punt. A bad pass by the Saxon
center sent the slippery ball over the goal to be downed by Adrian's tackle for a safety
and two points.
As the minutes of the last quarter ticked away Adrian's two points loomed up as
the margin of victory. Then with three minutes of play left Alfred got its first break
of the game. Two long aerial attacks brought Alfred within scoring distance. A
series of hard line plunges netted a first down. A short run put Alfred on Adrian's
five-line strip. On the next play Giannasio dropped back and fired a short fast
pass to Hodges who stepped across the last white line for the touchdown and victory
for the Saxons.
ALFRED l3 - DEFIANCE 0
The second Alfred opponent for the schedule brought Defiance to the Saxon
Campus. This was Alfred's Homecoming Day and the players were out to give the Old
Grads their first Homecoming victory in Alfred's football history.
During the first half the teams battled on even terms with the play concentrated
in the middle of the field. The Saxons began a siege on the Defiance defense in the
third quarter which netted two goals. The first score came when Giannasio inter-
cepted a pass and raced 30 yards down the side line. Hodges chalked up the second
and last score of the game with a 90-yard dash across the Defiance goal.
Both teams played even ball through the game except for the spectacular third
quarter spurt by the Saxons. Alfred gained a slight advantage by the use of many
deceptive plays which gave Alfred seven first downs to Defiance's five. Both teams
used the aerial route for occasional tries for yardage, but the condition of the field
prohibited any large gains through the air.
The mud also hindered the running attack and the kicking of both teams. Alfred
had one kick blocked in the second period, the ball being recovered by a Defiance man
deep in the Saxon's territory. Alfred soon reclaimed the ball on downs and turned
back Defiance's only threat to score.
ALFRED 7 - NORTHEASTERN 37
With two home victories to bolster their hopes, Alfred gridmen opened the out-
of-town campaign at Boston, where the overwhelming reserve power of Northeastern
University defeated them 37-7. Having four complete teams at its beck and call,
Northeastern battered away at the Alfred first string for half the game before the
strain told on the Soxons and they permitted four last half touchdowns to reach the
The game moved through the first half with both teams on even terms. Alfred
rang up its lone tally in the second quarter when Giannasio and Hodges flashed a
series of brilliant laterals which sent Eric over for six points. Meanwhile North-
eastern registered twice for a half time score of I2-7.
After the rest period the Northeastern coach flooded the contest with substiu-
tions. He used all his four squads to stem the tide of any possible Saxon comeback,
and these veteran elevens served to keep the situation well under control.
Alfred suffered loss in personnel in this contest. Besley, bucking back who had
been converted to center, went out for the season with an injury to his arm.
ALFRED O - ST. BONAVENTURE 30
Before the slashing, skirting, passing Indians of St. Bonaventure College, Alfred
went down to defeat for the second time of the season at Bradner Stadium, Olean.
The Saxons battled gallantly throughout but dropped the contest on the basis of Bona's
superior man power.
Hodges, captain, bore the brunt of the Saxon's showing as his quick kicks booted
the Alfred eleven out of danger many times and kept the score down to its final
status. Defensive honors for the contest must go to Bruns, hefty guard, and Hodick,
center, who played Giannasio's left half position. Giannasio, fleet ball carrier, suffered
a fractured ankle in scrimmage during a practice session before the Bona game.
Bonaventure opened its scoring late in the first stanza when O'Donnell culminated
a series of runs with an eight-yard dash over the Saxon goal. Shimbo and Maslonik
added two more counters in the second period with runs of 69 and 32 yards.
With Rucinski as the spearhead of their attack, Bona scored twice more in the third
period. The burley back led two Bona drives down the field to the Saxon's last white
stripe. Attack and counter-attack filled the fourth period, with neither team being
able to take advantage of scoring opportunities.
ALFRED O - CLARKSON 27
A strong Clarkson team handed the Saxons their third defeat of the season 27-O,
Fighting hard to check an overwhelming Clarkson offense, which combined a pow-
erhouse running attack with a bewildering aerial offensive, the Saxons succeeded in
holding the Engineers scoreless for the first half. The superior man-power of the
Clarkson eleven showed itself in the last half, as they ran rough-shod through the
Alfred defense to score four touchdowns.
A pillar of strength for a losing cause was Hodges, stellar Saxon halfback. lt was
his drive and speed which gave Alfred their only two first downs. Outstanding on the
defense were the Corbman brothers, and Fargione.
Fiessinger, Engineer fullback, was the star of the Clarkson offense. He scored
a pair of touchdowns and his thirty-yard pass to Cambridge was responsible for a
third score. Cambridge scored the fourth Clarkson touchdown.
ALFRED O-BUFFALO 7
An intercepted pass and an 89-yard dash to Alfred's goal was the margin by which
the University of Buffalo defeated the Saxons on the Buffalo gridiron.
The bottle between the teams was evenly matched and the game was well on its
way towards a scoreless tie when Rosing, Buffalo halfback, intercepted an Alfred pass
and romped 89 yards for a touchdown.
The Saxons battled furiously in the closing minutes twice pushing the Bulldogs
back to the shadows of their own goal posts, only to lose the ball on downs when a
touchdown seemed certain.
Leading the Saxons running attack were Hodges and Arnold. Hodges played his
usual brilliant game, dodging and twisting his way through the Buffalo defense while
Arnold's line bucking was highly effective. Hodick was the spearhead of the Alfred
aerial offense. His passes kept the Bulldog's secondary defense an their toes.
On the defense the Saxons were superb. The line held the Buffalo offense in
check throughout the game. Only three times were the Buffalo ball carriers able to
pass the forward ball into the secondary.
For the Bulldogs, Rappale was outstanding. He stoppedgtwo of Alfred's desper-
ates last minute drives. This was Buffalo's first victory of the year and Alfred's
ALFRED O - NIAGARA 40
For the last game of the season the Alfred varsity engaged the Purple Eagles of
Niagara under the arc lights of Hornell's Maple City Park.
Niagara received the opening kick-off and before the game was five minutes old
the Purple Eagles had two touchdowns. The remaining of the Eagles' scoring came
in the last half.
ln the closing minutes of the first quarter Alfred started a march up the field. A
pass and lateral combination was good for 30 yards. A sweeping end run netted l5
more. Niagara, with their backs to the goal held for downs and punted out of danger.
In the second quarter Alfred again made a bid to score. Hodges received a kick
deep in his own territory. Cutting and dodging he sprinted 75 yards up the side line
forced out of bounds on Niagara's l5-yard strip. Again Niagara put up an unyield-
ing defense and Alfred lost the ball on downs.
Alfred's line, though out-weighed man to man, fought a brilliant battle. Many
a Niagara play was smeared behind the line of scrimmage. Oberhanick was in there
fighting every minute. Fargione and Bruns showed up well on the left side of the line.
The Corbman brothers prevented any great gains through the center.
Ten men ended their football careers in a blaze of glory. Their brilliant play was
a constant threat to Niagara throughout the game.

Alfred's harriers, with the return of but one letter-
man, entered upon the l935 cross country season with
dismal prospect. Captain-elect Minnick did not run
because of basketball and studies. This, plus the
failure of Oldfield, one of Alfred's greatest distance
stars, to return to college left a handicap which in-
fluenced the entire season. Besides Dawson, the
single varsity letter man from last year's hill and
ROSS R. Dawson dalers, Hodge and Forbes were the other juniors avail-
Captain able. A strong sophomore contingent was made up
of Hughes, Keefe, Mickritz, Vance, Lynch, Scott,
Dorn, and Myers of last year's Frosh outfit and a
newcomer, Whitmore. Despite the disappointment in losing all but one dual meet, the
season was climaxed by a colossal victory in the Middle Atlantic Championship, thus
the Saxons retain the team championship for two consecutive years.
The first meet brought Cornell, the only school ever to conquer Alfred harriers on
their home course, as opponents. They duplicated the feat again as they swept over
the four and one-half mile course to victory. Bob Hughes was beaten in a frantic
drive to the tape by Mezzit of Cornell with less than a second separating the two
runners. Behind these leaders came five of the victors. Then Keefe, Mickritz, Vance
and Hodge to complete Alfred's scoring.
The first evidence of future strength came as the varsity overwhelmed the Univer-
sity of Rochester team by placing nine men across the line before' the first opponent
appeared. A blanket finish of Dawson, Hughes, Mickritz, Vance, Keefe and Forbes
in first place gave Alfred a perfect score. Dorn, Whitmore and Hodge soon followed,
the latter pulling a tendon which kept him out for the rest of the season.
Syracuse followed Army's example and defeated the varsity quite badly. The
meet was held four days after the tiresome three-day trip to West Point which did not
give the team sufficient time to recover. The course was unsuited to those who spent
their training on Alfred's rugged hills as it was a level grassy golf course with two
laps. A clever ruse of the Syracuse coach in stating for the press that he had the
worst team in history was discredited by Coach James A. McLeod and the varsity soon
discovered Syracuse's actual strength. For a second time Mickritz led the Alfred
forces in. He was the only man to preventa perfect score against the Saxons. Daw-
son, Vance, Hughes and Keefe followed a few seconds later with a fast finish but the
Syracuse team proved to be too fleet for a last minute sprint.
With three weeks of rigid training on level ground
seven harriers left for the intercollegiates to meet the
best teams in the country.
The inexperience and lack of individual talents
such as Java and Oldfield was felt more clearly in a
large meet than in the previous dual contests. Bob
Hughes led the Alfredians across the finish line in
fifty-seventh position. Mickritz, Vance, Dawson and
Keefe finished in that order further back to give Alfred patrick J' -I-,Si
seventeen positions out of a field of twenty-six Manage'
universities. lt is well to note at this point that
Rutgers was above Alfred on the list by a number of
points as this team was the main opposition at the Middle Atlantic Championships
one week later.
The added experience gained from a big meet plus the reaching the peak of con-
dition at an opportune time proved to be a victorious combination. Although in-
dividual honors were taken by "Phil" and "Danny" Smith of Rutgers who finished
first and second, respectively, Alfred's fine team balance and united strength provided
the margin of victory. This gave the Middle Atlantic Championship to Alfred for
another year. Mickritz with a burst of speed in the last lOO yards took fourth posi-
tion and was the first Alfred winner across the finish line. Hughes finishing well
took fifth directly behind Micky. Keefe staged a beautiful drive to oust a Rutgers
man from sixth place while Vance and Dawson followed in eighth and ninth position.
Rutgers' score was 33, one point higher than Alfred, and Lafayette the only other
complete team had a total of 57.
The success of the i936 season will depend on the enthusiasm of the students.
There will be no individual stars unless Perkins, Vance and Barreca from last year's
harriers improve beyond expectation. With these three to increase the fervor of an
entire returning varsity, the season rests on the support of the University in victory
or in defeat. This year the interest was shown in a lesser degree than previous. This
attitude if prevalent in the entire student body pervades the mind of the runner and
decreases his ability by destroying the subtle psychological inspiration which spurs
him over the end of the course. Bob Hughes of Syracuse has been elected Captain
for the '36 season. ln his opinion as well as that of the entire team the hope for
student interest and support and the answer to that hope is the factor which will
make or break the season of i936.

John K. Cox
Alfred University witnessed definite progress in basketball during the i935-36
season. The Saxon cagers played eighteen games in the most extensive schedule an
Alfred court team has ever attempted. And Alfred made a three-game metropolitan
A glance at the record indicates the favorable result of this progressive trend. Into
the pages of Alfred's athletic history went nine victories and nine defeats, while Alfred
outscored its opponents 7Ol to 629. The ledger reveals that the Saxons rode to
victory over schools of the mettle of St. Lawrence University, Clarkson School of Tech-
nology, University of Buffalo, Hobart College and Allegheny College, The teams
which splashed the red ink on the Saxon scorebook hailed from powerful colleges like
Long Island University, Cornell University, Colgate U. and Syracuse U.
When John K. Cox stepped to the helm of the Saxon court squad for his first sea-
son as varsity basketball coach, an array of veterans awaited him. Jack Edleson,
center, and Dan Minnick, guard, were co-captains. Three juniors, Nick Oberhanick,
Norm Schachter and Bob Shoemaker, completed the startling lineup. Schachter and
Oberhanick held the forward berths and Shoemaker paired with Minnick as guards.
ln reserve were Eric Loytty, veteran senior, and Eugene Keefe and Ken Vance, sopho-
The'new court mentor laid the foundation of his offense around the gunning of
Schachter and Oberhanick, EdIeson's height and aggressiveness counted to most ad-
vantage in action under the basket. For floor-work and ball-handling Cox depended
on Shoemaker and Minnick. This was the five which led the Saxon court parade all
Schachter, one of the fastest men on the floor, piled up a total of l97 points to
cop the individual scoring honors of the team, while Edleson and Oberhanick trailed
with l5l and l37, respectively. Minnick tallied consistently with long shots, and
Shoemaker often added to the Saxon scoring with clever placements. Avaluable man
in the pinches was Loytty, while Keefe and Vance gave fighting support to the team
when they stepped in as relief men. To these eight warriors Alfred's Athletic Gov-
erning Board awarded Varsity A's. ,
A chart of the season traces the irregular path of the team, which opened with a
splurge of victory, stumbled into a mid-season bog, and came back in a story-book
In the last days of i935 Coach Cox sent his Saxon squad up against the returning
Alumni five for their first test of the year. The varsity won by eleven points. Then
the Coxmen journeyed upstate for two games. Hobart College offered a gallant
battle, but was no match for a 38-point offensive drive which the Saxons staged in
the second half.
On the following night Alfred met Syracuse University and the Orangemen were
forced to go the limit to win a six-point decision from the Saxons. Then before Christ-
mas recess, the Purple and Gold courtsters overwhelmed University of Buffalo on the

Upsala to a two-point lead for half the game, the Coxmen fell behind in the second
half and lost 42-29. Long Island University and John Marshall Law School scored
triumphs over the Saxons on the next two nights.
The metropolitan iaunt, though unsuccessful' from a standpoint of wins and losses,
indicated the progressive attitude of Saxon athletic coaches in striving to elevate
Alfred to a higher plane of competitive basketball.
Back in Western New York, the ldes of January still haunted Alfred's cage team.
With a strong second half thrust, the Brown Indians of St. Bonaventure drove to a
nine-point victory over the Saxons at Allegany. Then the following week Alfred lost
to the Niagara University cagers as the Eagles showed Saxon fans some very accurate
With the advent of February Alfred headed up the comeback trail. ln a battle
at Alfred the Coxmen blasted University of Buffalo a second time. There followed
at Ithaca one of Alfred's best games of the season. Cornell, Big Red power in bas-
ketball circles, was extended to the utmost before it eked out a 39-37 triumph over
the Saxons. Alfred led the Cornellians by six points at the three-minute mark, but
the Big Red won the game with a field goal in the last 20 seconds.
Alfred won four of its last five home games. Allegheny College fell an easy prey
and Clarkson Tech, too, went down before this inspired crew of Alfred men. The
Saxons defeated St. Lawrence University 43-4l a few nights later in a dramatic extra-
period finish. Tied at 39 all when regular playing time ended, Alfred and the Larries
played an additional five minutes. Oberhanick and Schachter added the victory margin
for Alfred to climax the season's prize-winner for thrills and surprises.
Once more was St. Bonaventure the Saxon nemesis, the next Tuesday at Alfred.
After a hard struggle Mike Reilly's charges became the only squad to down Alfred
twice in the season.
The court year wound up a week later with two games away from home. John
"Ghost" Galloway, Alfred coach previous to this season, produced a band of Colgate
men who lived up to their coach's reputation as they won over the Saxons, Sl-38.
Then Allegheny College was forced to submit once more to the Saxon second-half
offensive in the final game of the year for Alfred.
Jack Edleson, stalwart pivot man, gave his varsity career the correct finishing
touch as he took Saxon scoring honors with l4 points at Colgate and 20 at Allegany.
Alfred will start its second year under the new mentor with five lettermen,
Schachter, Oberhanick, Shoemaker, Keefe and Vance. The expected return of Walter
"Bucky" Davis, ill this year, should bolster the team's strength, while Don Vreden-
burgh is another center prospect.
Coach James A. McLane's frosh team won eight out of thirteen contests and
offered several likely candidates for the varsity next season. They are Ray Buckley,
Irving Hirschfeld, Lyle Perkins, Crandall Cowles, Sanford Arkin, Joe Majeske, Olaf
Loytty, Joseph Proe, Seymour Smigrod, Ronald Bald and Willis Lawrence.
Out of this material Coach Cox will seek to build another strong Saxon team.

The i935 Varsity Track team, lacking its usual
all-around balance, went ahead under the watchful
guidance of Coach James McLane and Coach John
Galloway to win many hard-earned honors.
From the standpoint of wins and the develop-
ment of new material it was a successful season.
The team won dual meets from Cortland Normal
and the University of Rochester, and placed fifth
in the Middle Atlantic Championships, and second
in the Rochester Invitation meet.
For the first time in the Track history of Alfred Lynn Smith
a relay team composed of Dawson, Giannasio, Min- Manager
nick, and Jones, won the Middle Atlantic Class B
mile relay championship at the Penn Relays. This
winning combination went on later in the season, to set a new college mile relay mark
of 3 :3O.2.
Such men as Hodges in the lOO-yard dash and 220-yard dash, Schiffner in the
l2O-yard high hurdles and 220-yard low hurdles, Edleson in the discus, and Minnick
in the 880-yard run and the running broad jump were consistent point getters
throughout the season. Howard Sephton showed up well early in the season, but a
pulled tendon, suffered during the Rochester dual meet, put him out for the remainder
of the schedule.
Captain Java, outstanding distance runner for three years, and J. Knapp were lost
through graduation. From Alfred's '38 Freshman team Lynch in the 440-yard dash,
Hughes and Scott in the middle distances, and Hodnett in the sprints, should
strengthen the i936 Varsity.
On April 26, Alfred University inaugurated the i935 season in a burst of glory
at the Penn Relays in Philadelphia.
The Saxon relay team swept through the mile baton-passing event in the record-
cracking time of 3':3l.2 to cop the Middle Atlantic Class B Championship toga.
Meanwhile Java, competing against a field of nationally known runners, finished
eighth in the 3000-meter steeplechose. Edleson placed fifth in the discus.
ALFRED 97 V2 - CORTLAND NORMAL 33 V2
Back home May 3 for the lone meet at Alfred, Coach McLane's speedsters anni-
hilated the Cortland Normal team by the one-sided score of 97 V2-33V2.
Despite adverse weather conditions Alfred men smashed two track records. Clark
broke the broad iump mark with a leap of 22' Vg". Whaley shattered the existing
standard in the javelin throw with a heave of l6l V2 feet.
Each of the track events saw a Saxon runner emerge victorious. Hodges was
clocked at lO.6 as he breezed to victory in the lOO-yard dash. Jones took the 440
in 56.6 and also was anchor man on the mile relay team, which defeated the Cortland
quartet in the closest race of the day. Shiffner won both hurdle events.
ln the distance runs, too, Alfred ruled supreme. Minnick, timed at 2:07.7, captured
the half-mile. Java showed his heels to the field in the mile in 4:46.4, and in the two-mile
event Knapp was the winner in I I :09.3.
Cortland gained its two firsts in the field events, Edkins winning the javalin throw
with a toss of l65 feet while Whitman and Ambruske, tied for first place in the pole vault
at I0 ft. 6 in.
Alfred easily swept the rest of the field events. Hayward took the shotput with a toss
of 39 ft. 4 in. Edleson won the discus throw at I22 ft. I0 in. Whaley and Clark tied
for first in the high jump at 5 ft. 6 in., and Clark won the broad jump with a leap of 22
ft. V2 in. to set a new track record.
MIDDLE ATLANTIC CHAMPIONSHIPS
Fifth was the Saxon ranking in the Middle Atlantics at Bethlehem, May I0-I I, even
though five Alfred tracksters placed in seven events for a total of I6 points. Rutgers
won with 54, Lehigh trailed at 32 7fl0, Swarthmore was next with 22 IXS and Franklin
and Marshall had I8.
Java did double duty in this meet, placing second in the two-mile run and fifth in a
fast mile. Minnick was third in the 880, Edleson was fourth in the discus, and Sephton
was fifth in the 220. Schiffner scored the other Saxon points with third in the 220 low
ALFRED 73 - ROCHESTER 58
ALFRED 42 - COLGATE 82
Splitting a double bill the week of May I2, the Saxon track team defeated the Uni-
versity of Rochester on Thursday at Rochester, then dropped a meet to the powerful
Colgate University team at Hamilton on Saturday.
Hanson in the shotput and discus, Paul in the high jump and broad jump, and Schiff-
ner in the high and low hurdles were double winners for the Purple and Gold, as they
led the attack against Rochester.
The Saxon strength was much in evidence as they swept three of the I4 events, while
Rochester accomplished the same in only one event. Alfred's sweeps came in the 220-
yard dash, the discus, and the broad jump. Rochester's was in the pole vault.
Colgate's man power and balanced team was far too strong for the small Saxon
squad. Although Alfred came far from winning the meet it pushed Colgate in every event
and placed at least one man in every contest but the javalin.
Java, Alfred's distance pacer, was the bright light for the Saxon team. Mike won the
mile in 4:34 and then took the two-mile event in I0:I3.6. ,
I RocHEsTER iNviTATioN MEET
In the final meet of the season, a strong Saxon team was nosed out by IM points
as the University of Rochester won its own invitation meet with 79V2 to Alfred's 773Ai.
Hamilton College placed third and St. Lawrence trailed.
It was nip and tuck all the way between Rochester and Alfred, with the rest of the
field out of the running from the start. Rochester won the day when their relay team took
the last event on the program in the record time of 3:29.I.
Alfred's men took seven first places. Hodges set the pace by taking both the sprints.
He was not pressed in the I00-yard dash, but had to extend himself to the limit to take
the 220-yard dash in 22 seconds. Captain Red Java won his last race for Alfred as he
came in an easy winner of the two-mile run in I0:2.4. Java placed second to Phillips
of Rochester in the mile.
Whaley came through in a spectacular fashion in the javalin throw as his final heave
went I67 ft. 5 in., which won the event and set a new Alfred record. This throw bettered
his own record of I6I V2 feet set in the Cortland meet. Minnick won the broad jump with
a leap of 2l feet 278 in. Other Alfred winners were Schiffner in the 220-yard low hurdles
and Whaley who tied for first place in the high jump with Dunnigan, and Robinson of

The i937 KANAKADEA has a circulation which more than doubles that
of any previous issue. Instead of being sold on a subscription as in former
years, the cost of this book has been added to the tuition bill of each student.
This has permitted a larger volume with more complete organization repre-
sentation and a much greater circulation.
A great share of credit for this volume must be given to Dean M. Ellis
Drake whose cooperation and experience gained in former years has been
an important factor in its production. We offer our sincere thanks, too, to
Mr. Carl N. Stiber of the Grit Publishing Company, The Moser Studios, The
Kingsport Press and the many students and faculty members who have
worked loyally when their aid was needed.

Fiat Attains New
High in Campus
Unique Features, Strong Editorials
and Wider Scope Contribute
to Year's Success
Soaring to its all time peak in
journalistic quality, the Fiat Lux
is about to complete its twenty-
third year of existence. Current-
ly characterized by more com-
plete campus news coverage and
improved make-up, the Fiat has
been raised from the standard of
an undistinguished paper to that
of an Alfred institution.
Under the capable direction of
Dorothy L. Saunders, editor-in-
chief, an efficient and well or-
ganized staff has been developed
which has adequately attended., to
the routine details. The endow-
ment of the assistant editors with
greater responsibility has left the
editor with time for close and
effective supervision of the edi-
The initiation of a vigorous
editorial policy has been an im-
portant factor in creating reader-
interest. By instituting novel
features, such as the Tag-Letter,
and by encouraging Letters to
the Editor, Miss Saunders has won
for herself the distinction of
giving the Fiat the unparalleled
popularity it now enjoys.

Novel Advertising Scheme and
Instruction Plan Results in
Greatest Volume of Sales
Increased volume of sale of
national and local advertising has
resulted in the greatest revenue
the Fiat has had since its found-
ing in 1913. The business staff,
by incorporating modern styles
of layout and copy preparation
into its pages, has been strongly
instrumental in the improvement
of the campus weekly.
The abandonment of yearly
advertising contracts as used in
former years in favor of a new
weekly contract scheme has given
the impetus to advertising sales.
By this system, advertisers were
enabled to change their copy
weekly providing an ever chang-
ing variety thus keeping readers
informed of current values.
Intensive training in solicita-
tion and in circulation problems
has, in a large measure, been re-
sponsible for the constantly in-
creasing roll of alumni subscrib-
ers and the number of advertisers.
These training sessions, conduct-
ed weekly under the supervision
of Charles D. Henderson and
Edwin L. Brewster, co-business
managers, have aided the under-
class assistants in perfecting
their business techniques and in
understanding the intricacies of

Dorothy Saunders Proves Hopkins
Wrong: Other Interests Claim
Her Active Participation
By completing a highly success-
ful term as editor-in-chief of the
Fiat Lux, Miss Dorothy L.
Saunders has invalidated the con-
tention of her predecessor that
"no damn woman can run a
newspaper." The former editor,
Charles S. Hopkins, when retiring
was disgusted to discover that the
only person qualified to succeed
him was Miss Saunders. Reluc-
tantly he turned control over to
Had Hopkins been fully aware
of the potentialities of his suc-
cessor, he would have been hesi-
tant about making his classic
remark. This was evidenced in
a recent phone call from Albany
in which he shamefacedly re-
tracted his statement and was
loud in his Iaudation of Dorothy
' Although Miss Saunders has
worked on the Fiat for four years,
she has not allowed it to domi-
nate her extra curricula activities.
The i936 KANAKADEA held her
interest last year and to that pub-
lication she was among the most
voluminous contributors. The
fields of dramatics and music
have been favored by her activity.
She is a member of the Footlight
Club and for three years she has
sung in the University Choir.
As evidence that her scholar-
ship has not suffered by her other
diversified interests, she has been
accorded honors for two years and
she has been a member of Eta Mu
Alpha for the same period.

Outstanding Match: Coopera-

Edwin L. Brewster and Charles

co-business managers of the Fiat.
During this period they have co-

Taking office during the latter
half of the administration of

formulated the definite series

and which have put the business

basis. To avoid overlapping of
duties and possible confliction,
Brewster has applied himself prin-
cipally to the field of circulation

Both men have been unusually
active in other fields. Brewster,
a member of Klan Alpine, has
been a dorm counsellor for two
years. His pleasant voice is well
known to the students through
the medium of the glee club and
the quartette and for the past
four years he has taken part in
intramural athletics. Henderson's
activities are almost too numer-
ous to mention. Among other
things, he has been business man-
ager of the l936 KANAKADEA,
a charter member of the scouting
fraternity, assistant manager of
the interscholastics and a partici-
pant in intramural sports.

MARY AGNES BROICH
Queen of the 1936 St. Pat's Festival
ST. PAT'S FESTIVAL
The i936 edition of the St. Pat's Celebration faced not only the common everyday
problems but it also had to contend with the forces of nature. The Festival, originally
scheduled for March 20 and Zl had to be postponed a week because of a widespread
sleet storm which cut down all power lines into Alfred.
The St. Pat's Board, under the direction of Curt Jackson, started formulating its
plans the last week in January. With this early start, the members worked to put
on the best Festival yet presented. March 27 saw the opening of two days of festivity.
St. Pat, attired in the long green ceremonial robes of his order, arrived from a vaca-
tion in that island paradise, Tahiti. He was escorted by a picturesque guard of six
noble looking stalwarts. The procession of honor started through town amid the
cheers of the multitude. Next to last in line was the gaudy purple and gold white-
wares machine operated by Theta Nu. This contraption turned out literally dozens
of sundry cups, saucers, and plates land a few beer bottles caused by some contamina-
tion of the mix alleged to have been introduced by Prof. Bob Campbelll. The judges,
whether inspired by the sight of the bottles or not, awarded first prize to this float.
Sigma Chi, with its striking shamrock production, also won many votes of approval.
At Alumni Hall, St. Pat delivered his annual address which has since been termed
"swell" by 95W of the assemblage to "a trifle risque" by guess who. Maj. Lampman
should be highly complimented on his performance of the morning and also on all
his subsequent appearances as St. Pat.
On the afternoon of the same day, a Tea Dance was held in the lounge of the New
Ceramic College. Music was furnished by Lennie Rubenstein and his band.
From seven o'clock until eleven, the doors of the Ceramic College were thrown open
to the public and modern technology of ceramics was demonstrated. Many industrial
concerns sent exhibitions of their particular field which drew much favorable com-
ment. After being escorted through the intricacies of the ceramic industry, the
visitors saw Eddie Cantor in "Strike Me Pink."
The second day of celebration started with the presentation of "PIeasure Garden"
by the Footlight Club and Theta Alpha Phi. It was adjudged the best performance
of character impersonation yet presented at Alfred.
Climaxing the two-day series of events was the Formal Ball featuring the corona-
tion of the Queen of the Campus. The gymnasium was transformed into a veritable
paradise by lavish application of green and white crepe paper supplemented by a
multitude of colored lights. The orchestra, under the baton of Bob Fredette, added
the final touch of atmosphere. As the time for intermission drew near, the orchestra
struck up the"'Wearing of the Green," and the entire assemblage stopped dancing
to pay homage to the Queen, Agnes Broich. Preceded by her maids of honor, she ad-
vanced to the throne where she was crowned by St. Pat.
At half past one, the deadline set by the fairy godmother, Dean Degan, the finale
was written to the fourth celebration in honor of that amiable old snake driver-outter,
St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ceramic Engineers.
The Pleasure Garden
A Good Woman
Aria da Capo
Unlike Mother Hubbard's legendary dog
whose appetite was whetted but not ap-
peased by an empty cupboard, Saxon
dramatists this year found the lack of
facilities and lack of interest to be the
strongest stimulants which raised Alfred
University dramatics to a level worthy of
being labeled as artistic endeavor.
lt all started last fall when ambitious,
energetic Miss Mary K. Rogers became in-
structor in dramatics and public speaking.
Inspired by Miss Rogers, visions of a well
equipped and competent group of actors and
designers, the Footlight Club and Theta
Alpha Phi worked hand in hand with the
dramatics classes to present difficult plays
as they should be presented.
With the courage and resolution which
has characterized this year's dramatic con-
quests, Miss Rogers summoned her small
band of actors and stage hands to inventory
the possibilities in September when the
Frosh-Soph plays loomed menacingly first
on the program.
To complete sets of scenery were con-
structed. A crew of stage hands worked
until a half an hour before the opening
curtain to get things completed. ln addition
to the regular difficulties of whipping young
actors into shape, Miss Rogers had to instruct
untrained stage designers, managers, cos-
tumers, property men and electricians in the
intricacies of the stage.
Four one-act plays: Arnold Bennett's
"Good Woman", Edna St. Vincent MilIay's
"Aria da Capo", Maurice Maeterlinch's
"The lntruder", and Russell Melcraft's "His
First Dress Suit" met with varying degrees
of response from an audience which did not
realize completely the problems of develop-
ing a unified program out of insufficient
material and time.
New spotlights were added to the equip-
ment a short while later as was a complete
The preliminary presentation of the
Frosh-Soph plays set the stage for the second
performance, "The Late Christopher Bean,"
which starred a crew of actors who now
began to get into the swing of things. This
play involved difficult characterization, more
especially so since the play had recently been
produced into a motion picture. A wildly
enthusiastic audience testified to the success
of this undertaking.
Departing from customary play form, the
dramatics classes next staged a one-act play,
"The Hope Chest," illustrating the value of
simplified scenery. By employing lights as
the major part of the scenery and by using
actors in a profound plot, the dramatists
received hearty praise from the select
audience which witnessed the undertaking.
A climax capped Alfred's dramatic season
when a complete summary of all the creative
training of the year was poured into the
"Pleasure Garden," an expressionistic four-
act character study with an outdoor setting.
Twenty-two actors carried the largest and
most responsive audience of the year through
a cross-section of every day life. The stag-
ing, too, represented the three dimensional
aspect of massed foliage and columnar tree
trunks. The setting was designed by Pro-
fessors Nelson and Schreckengost of the
ceramic art department.
ln this brief sketch, only the outline of the
progress in dramatics has been touched upon,
although a genuinely aesthetic chord has
been struck during the past year.

Two years ago there arose on the campus the need for a strong, binding body to represent
the separated fraternities. As a result, the present Interfraternity Council was formed. Each
house must furnish two bonds, one to insure their membership, and the second to insure that
they will not violate the rushing rules. The judicial body is a tribunal, composed of one faculty
member from each fraternity and one non-fraternity faculty member who serves as a chairman.
By mutual consent of the member fraternities, the lnterfraternity Council sponsors a
winter ball which replaces the individual winter formals. In the post, this event has proven to
be one of the outstanding social events of the year.
As given in the constitution of the council, their purposes are to promote harmony and
mutual understanding among the fraternities on the campus, to act as an interpreting medium
between the faculty and the allied organizations on the campus of the University, to lay and
enforce rules for governing all situations of common interest to the fraternities.
At the present time, all of the fraternities on the campus are members of the council.
They are, Klan Alpine, Delta Sigma Phi, Kappa Psi Upsilon, Kappa Nu and Theta Kappa Nu.

Theta Kappa Nu came into existence on Alfred's campus
November 7, l925. The original fraternity, Eta Phi Gamma,
founded by Professors Cummings and Lake in l9l l, was the
nucleus of the group which in i925 was accepted into mem-
bership in the National Theta Kappa Nu Fraternity and
became known as New York Beta chapter.
ln l92l the present house, originally owned by the late
Doctor Binns and built by him when he first came to Alfred,
was received and realtered to form an adequate fraternity
dwelling. On November lO, of this school year, the payment
on the mortgage was completed and at an impressive banquet
the document was burned. The home of Theta Kappa Nu,
situated as it is on the campus itself, holds a position second
ln the current year many recognitions have been awarded
Theta Kappa Nu. For the second year in succession the
National Activity cup given to the chapter representing the
most activities on a Theta Kappa Nu campus, has been won
by New York Beta. The Saint Pat's float cup also proudly
adorns the mantel. Co-captain of this year's successful
wrestling team, presidency of the interfraternity council and
also the Scouting fraternity, and prominent offices in many
other campus activities were held by brothers of this organiza-

The Alpha Zeta Chapter of the Delta Sigma Phi Fraternity
was installed at Alfred in l92O. Before affiliating with the
fraternity the chapter was known as the Ku Klux Klan. This
local organization was a boarding club. The desire to affiliate
with some national fraternity of note became a byword of the
men who made up the Ku Klux Klan. They felt that the bond
existing between them as o boarding club and as close friends
should be further strengthened by more than a mutual friend-
ship. They applied to the National Office of the Delta Sigma
Phi Fraternity for admittance to that organization and after
careful research into the local club by the Delta Sigma Phi
Fraternity the chapter was installed on December IO, l92O.
Under the guidance of Frank Lobaugh the new chapter began

ln the month of October, l929, Kappa Eta Phi was
established at Alfred as a local fraternity. Its first year was
one of trial and hardship, for the formation ofa new fraternity
on the Alfred Campus was no mean undertaking.
However, by the spring of l932, Kappa Eta Phi was an
established organization being sought by several national
fraternities. This brought about the formal initiation into
Kappa Nu, a national fraternity of recognized strength, just
at the close of the second semester.
Throughout the four years of its existence as a member of
the national fraternity, Kappa Nu has made rapid strides,
finally achieving its rank of par with the other fraternities on
the campus. Kappa Nu has participated in the various activi-
ties open to the fraternal organizations. It has gained one
leg on the inter-mural basketball trophy, and was runner-up
this year. Also, it has been awarded the plaque for the best
float in the Ceramic Festival parade.
Scholastically, Kappa Nu has ranked among the first three
of Alfred's fraternal organizations throughout its entire
V es .
existence. Members of Kappa Nu have
possessed captaincies in every sport.
The year I935-l936 has been a banner
year in our history. We had a representative
on every team with the exception of cross-
country. ln all the other extra curricular
activities we are well represented.
For the future, Kappa Nu shall strive to
achieve still greater heights and contribute
to the making of Alfred's History.

Kappa Psi Upsilon was founded in i922 by a group of Alfred
students headed by Dr. Sanford Cole. The fraternity first
occupied the Hunting Lodge at Main and University Streets.
ln i927 the need for a larger house was seen. The home of
Frank L. Green was purchased by the fraternity and has been
used since that time. The location of the house on the hill
overlooking the campus and town is an ideal spot.
The aims and purposes of the fraternity have always been
to perpetuate and preserve the traditions and ideals of Alfred
to the best ends possible. The fraternity as a smaller unit of
the college has tried at all times to cooperate and aid in every
way possible that college life at Alfred might be better.

Klan Alpine Fraternity originally started as a boarding club
in Burdick Hall in l902. The club chose the name Clan
Alpine as befitting the spirit of the group. Its colors were
Lincoln Green and Russet Grey.
ln l906, Mrs. Margaret King came to Alfred, and shortly
thereafter became the matron of the club, in which capacity
she has served ever since.
When the United States entered the World War, the club
was scattered. At the close of the war, the twelve men which
were left were drawn more closely together. They organized
as a fraternity on December ll, l9l8l, adopting the name
Klan Alpine. Alfred L. Pollock, class of l92O, was chosen
the first president.
Soon after this, the house in which they were located was
destroyed by fire. In l92l, the fraternity moved into its
present home. Many improvements have since been added

ln the first years the members had a hard struggle to make
their new house sturdy as well as picturesque. Later they
were able to provide for necessary additions of sleeping porches

growth of the small pines before the house which are now a
strong and beautiful shelter.
In offering its bonds of sisterhood, Theta Chi has for its
aim the achievement of definite individual and group ideals
which are a heritage from its founders and from the Alfred
campus of which it is a part. Perhaps the sorority's greatest

permanent organization was announced and by June, the
Sorority had grown to include twenty4five women. The fol-
lowing fall found Pi Alpha Pi well established in its present

completed, the Sorority then made a diligent effort towards
carrying out the purposes for which it had been founded. Pi

girls who desired to band together for the furtherance of
ideals and interests which they held in common. On Decem-

annual banquets which have become traditional with the
During that first year, the group remained at the Brick.
They chose Mrs. Beulah Ellis to be their faculty adviser. In
the fall of i926 the Rogers house on Main Street became the
home of the sorority and two years later they bought a small
house on Sayles Street.
This building, which had been enlarged and renovated to
accommodate increased membership, was destroyed by fire
on March l7, l932. The sorority moved again, this time
into a vacant house on Main Street. They formulated and
executed plans for their present house on Sayles Street which
was ready for occupancy in September of that same year.

ln i932 the Student Senate of Alfred University was reorganized to meet the existing
problems. The Campus at this time was ruled by fraternity politics and this resulted in general
discontent among the student body.
The students organized themselves into the Students' Association of Alfred University
to develop a wise and intelligent self-control, to preserve and regulate beneficial customs and
traditions of Alfred University, to have control and charge of all college elections, and to assume
whenever expedient, the control of student affairs.
All persons enrolled as students of Alfred University are considered as members of this
association. The Students' Association is headed and represented by a Senate consisting of one
Senior from each of the fraternities, sororities, non-fraternity men, and non-sorority women.
lt is the duty of the Senate to condemn any practice which may not be deemed in accord-
ance with true college spirit and to act as the medium between the faculty and student.
Since the reorganization of the Senate student government at Alfred has definitely
progressed. The student has shown his ability to manage student affairs, campus politics have
been eliminated, and the students have upheld the customs and traditions which have become
a definite part of Alfred University.

students are elected by a popular vote of the entire student body, the third being elected by the

ln order that all matters of common interest to Alfred's three sororities might be iointly
controlled and rules made and enforced governing the actions of these sororities insofar as
they affect each other, the lntersorority Council was established in l928.
This council is made up of two members from each sorority one of whom must have served
previously. It is active during the women's rushing season and rarely meets after that time
except for the purpose of revising rushing rules and organizing the new council for the next
The most important work of the council is the making and enforcing rules of rushing and
bidding. This is of vital interest and importance to the three member sororities. The rules
are embodied in the constitution of the organization and can be changed only by a unanimous
vote of the council. Proposed amendments are always submitted first to the houses.
Since the spring of l93O, the sororities have given a formal dance together annually.
The arrangements for the dance are made by the council in which the idea originated. Early
in October of each year, the council issues invitations to an intersorority tea for the freshman
women which is held on the some afternoon at all the houses.
ln addition to providing a means of common legislation, the lntersorority Council con-
tributes toward intersorority friendship and exchange of ideas. Thus far in its history, it has
proved to be a decided asset to the success of sorority living.

Blue Key is a national honor fraternity. lt is designed to honor men recognized for their
character, scholarship, student activities, leadership and spirit of service.
A Blue Key chapter was installed at Alfred in February, l936, when the Purple Key took
the obligation of the National Honor Fraternity. This afforded a much needed stimulus, and
the members took on a new interest. Under the capable leadership of President Giannasio an
extensve program for the remainder of the year was launched. This included a "Bronze Glove"
boxing tournament, an Athletic Banquet, an intramural softball tourney, and many other
worthwhile projects. The Key is looking forward to even bigger and better accomplishments
next year in its quest for service, and has adopted the following general program of work:
To help in developing campus sentiment in solving certain problems which can be met
successfully only through the building of student opinion.
To help promote more friendly spirit of cooperation between students and faculty.
To encourage observation of college rules by setting an example.
To sponsor Home-Coming programs and Alumni activities.
To sponsor all intramural sports.
To entertain guests.
To emphasize high scholarship standards.

Keramos is the National Professional Ceramic Engineering Fraternity. lt was organized
at the University of Illinois in l9l5, but it was not until its consolidation in February, l93l,
with Beta Phi Kappa, Alfred Local, that the national fraternity was formed. The national
fraternity is composed of some SOO members, made up of students from ceramic colleges
throughout the country, and men particularly prominent in the field of ceramics.
The principal object of the fraternity is to promote and emphasize scholarship and char-
acter in the thoughts of the ceramic students, to stimulate mental achievement, and to
promote interest in ceramic engineering. As secondary objects it seeks to bind more closely the
alumni to the Alma Mater, and to the alumni of other ceramic colleges, and to furnish an
additional tie of college friendship.
Selection for membership is based on good scholarship, prominence in departmental
activities, and good character. Membership is limited to the two upper classes, with the
exception of two men who are outstanding at the end of their sophomore year.
Membership in Keramos is the highest honor that a student engineer can attain. It has
thus inspired a higher scholarship on the part of prospective members, and fulfilled its purposes
on Alfred's campus.

The Student Branch of the American Ceramic Society is an organization for all students
enrolled in the General Ceramic Engineering and Glass Technology courses. The American
Ceramic Society is a national organization of all of the leading men in the various Ceramic
Industries. The Student Branch attempts to bring about a closer relationship between these
men and the students.
Monthly meetings are held at which time an outstanding man in the Ceramic field is the
speaker. The Society has been fortunate this year in obtaining such men as Mr. Ross C. Purdy,
General Secretary of the American Ceramic Societyg Dr. J. T. Littleton, Chief Physicist of the
Corning Glass Company, Dr. Alexander Silverman, Head of the Department of Chemistry at
the University of Pittsburgh, Mr. J. E. Eagle, of the Vitro Manufacturing Company, Mr. S. F.
Walton, of the Exolon Company.
The Seniors of the Society also sponsored the annual St. Pat's Celebration. This affair
is a two-day festival in honor of the Engineer's Patron Saint, St. Patrick. Outstanding events
are: the parade ond assembly at which St. Pat gives his speech and knights all Seniors in his
order, the open house which allows visitors a view of the Ceramic College in operation, the
Tea Dance, matinee and movie. The climax of the affair is a grand ball at which the Campus
Queen is crowned.

the students and members of the Art Department of the College of Ceramics.
The guild is an adaptation of the medieval guilds. It is modern in organization, yet
strives to keep the individual recognition and growth of the artist which was successful in the
Membership is honorary and offered only to sophomores, juniors and seniors who have
shown interest and cooperation in their freshman year of work as apprentices.
ln addition to the officers and faculty members in the guild there is a council made up
of two representatives from each of the sophomore, junior and senior classes.
From the upper classes the faculty members choose persons with particular skill in the
designing of pottery to be designers. Each designer has working with him a group of craftsmen
who are from all four classes and may choose the designer for whom they wish to work.
The work of these craftsmen is to pour molds, finish ware for firing, prepare and glaze
the ware. The designer makes the designs, makes his molds, and produces the first ware from
his molds. .
Each year the Ceramic Guild holds a Christmas festival which accompanies the exhibition
and sale of their pottery. There is a similar exhibit and sale in June of pottery which repre-
sents the entire year's work of the guild.

The purpose of Campus Court is to uphold Alfred's traditions and to enforce campus rules.
Before it are brought male underclass offenders who have broken in letter or in spirit such
rules or traditions. Although offenders are not sent before the tribunal unless obviously guilty,
the court has endeavored to "give them a break." Not a few are merely warned for the first
The punishment for infractions of rules is left to the jury of upperclassmen who use their
ingenuity in applying sentence which most aptly fits the offense. By these oft-times humorous
and embarrassing punishments, freshmen are made to remember their positions and the tradi-
tions of this university.
This year, as usual, there was a cry of indignation from the frosh. Through petitions and
editorials, the Student Senate was forced to review the proceedings and nature of the court
functions. After due deliberation, the Senate decided to drastically reduce the authority of
the court. Fines were abolished and paddling curtailed. In general, the teeth were removed
from the organization.
The tribunal is two members from each fraternity and two non-fraternity men who serve
on the jury. This body must now be approved by the Student Senate and the judge will be
elected in the Spring campus elections. The clerk is appointed by the judge.
This organization is itself a tradition of Alfred's campus and as such, it should be en-
couraged to promote other traditions and favorable campus rules.

Women's Student Government was founded at Alfred as early as l9l3 with the name
College Women's Organization. The organization on our campus is a member of the Intercol-
legiate Student Government whose annual convention is attended by the president of the Alfred
W. S. G. and a junior from the council.
All women students in the university are members of the organization except those whose
parents are residents of the town of Alfred. By the equal vote of all the members are elected
the nine members of the council which holds the executive and judicial power.
By a two-thirds vote the council may make certain rules of social conduct which the
Alfred women are to follow. These rules are also granted by the Student Life Committee and
must be non-conflicting with regulations made by the Student Senate. The council has the
power to inflict the penalties necessary to enforce its decisions.
The council is composed of the president of the organization, the president of the Brick,
an upper-class representative from Theta Chi, from Pi Alpha Pi and from Sigma Chi Nu, three
representatives of the Brick and one representative of the women students living in the town.
The Alfred W. S. G. was honored by having its president, Margaret Bastow, in the year
i933-i934 made secretary-treasurer of the Intercollegiate W, S. G.
One of the few vestiges of the honor system on the campus, this system of government
depends for its success on the cooperation of each of the members who are honor-bound to
observe the rules.
Eta Mu Alpha

Rose DeRossi Secretary-Treasurer
Banded together in February, l924, under the chairmanship of M. Ellis Drake, Eta Mu
Alpha this year completes its twelfth year as an honorary scholastic fraternity dedicated to the
cause of furthering intellectual activity on the Alfred campus.
Leadership, knowledge, achievement-these are the ideals towards which members of
Eta Mu Alpha strive. Their foremost goal is looking forward to a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa at
Alfred, and they are preparing the way for it in every way possible. They hope by their attitude
to encourage among underclassmen an interest in scholarship, and on the whole campus, an
appreciation for those things cultural.
Over a period of twelve years, nearly one hundred forty students have fulfilled the require-
ments for membership in this fraternity-an average index of 2.4 for three years or of 2.2 for
all four years. These students have proved themselves outstanding not only in the field of
scholastic achievement but also in extra-curricular activities. Honorary members of the society
are President Emeritus Boothe C. Davis, Registrar Waldo A. Titsworth, Dean M. Ellis Drake,
Prof. Charles Amberg, Miss lldra Harris, Prof. John R. Spicer and the late President Paul E.
Administering the affairs of the organization this year have been Rae Whitney, president,
Curtis Jackson, vice president, and Rose DeRossi, secretary-treasurer. Other members including
those initiated late in April are: Betty Augenstine, Preston French, Irene Gage, Elizabeth
Hallenbeck, Marion O'Connor, Dorothy Saunders, Thelma Brasted, Norman lsaman, Edwin
Phillips, Marjorie Bell, Jean Burckley, Georgia Grow, Leone Hadba, Richard McClure, Lewis

Phi Sigma Camma

Barbara Bostow - - Historian
Phi Sigma Gamma, the women's honorary fraternity at Alfred, was founded in 1925 to
provide an incentive for achievement among the women students of the university.
The organization aims "to be a positive factor in Alfred's growth, to maintain and extend
a spirit of cooperation and good will between fraternity and non-fraternity groups, and to uphold
true Alfred ideals and express these ideals in service to Alfred."
To this end, each year, are elected to membership those women who have best expressed
these ideals by outstanding loyalty to the university, personal character, scholarship and service.
Eligibility is limited to twenty-five percent of the women of the two upper classes.
ln 1927, the idea of a loyalty medal for women was discussed by this organization and the
first medal was presented the next fall on the basis of character, scholarship, leadership, atti-
tude, sportsmanship, and service. The woman who received the honor was elected by the
student body. ln l93'5, this award was discontinued and election to Phi Sigma Gamma is now
the highest honor 0 woman can obtain on the campus.
At various times in the past, the fraternity has participated in or wholly supported various
activities which have since been sponsored by other groups or are no longer in existence.
Phi Sigma Gamma has mode it o custom to hold an informal initiation service for freshmen
women on the evening of Moving-up Day at which time the members express the ideals of the
organization to the under classes.

Forty-three years ago, the Young Women's Christian Association was organized at Alfred.
President Arthur E. Main headed the committee which, at the request of a group of students,
looked into the advisability of such an organization on the campus.
The constitution of the Y. W. C. A. was drawn up in May, l893, stating that its members
were uniting "in the desire to realize a full and creative life through a growing knowledge of
God." The commencement program of that year included for the first time the sermon before
the Christian Associations which was delivered by Boothe C. Davis.
The trustees of the university allotted a roorn in the Brick as a meeting place for the new
group but it has since moved to the Gothic chapel for its Sunday evening programs.
ln addition to these talks and discussions led by students and faculty members, the Y. W.
C. A. has sponsored outstanding speakers on the campus. lt has successfully established more
friendly relations between the junior women and their sister class of freshman women by means
of the "Big-Little Sister" plan.
This year it has contributed to the general welfare of the campus by arranging for a series
of Sunday Musicales which filled a need for more inspiring Sunday activities.
For many years the Alfred group has sent delegates to the noted Siver Bay Conferences
which have been valuable both to the women who attend and to the group as a whole.
In spite of decreasing membership in recent years, due to the increase in the number of
women's organizations, the Y. W. C. A. has a definite place in thc life of the campus.

The Alfred University Christian Association was founded in l93O from the former Y. M.
C. A. which had existed for some thirty years. The aims and principles of this organization are
to better instill in the college men a more definite outline for living and to give them opportunity
to discuss present day problems of varied nature. This year bull sessions at the fraternity
houses satisfactorily fulfilled the latter purpose.
The members of this club conduct the annual Freshman camp and prepare the Freshman
Handbook at the opening of the school year. The Alfred University Forum was a direct result of
the activity of the organization. The A. U. C. A. welcomes those men on the campus who wish
to identify themselves as followers of the Christian life. The work done by this club is felt by
every student on the campus.

One of the most influential organizations for the molding of the youth of the world is the
scouting movement. There has long been recognized the need for some means of bridging the
gap between the pre-college youth and the men who later serve Scouting as scoutmasters and
scouters. For this purpose Alpha Phi Omega, a national scouting fraternity, was organized.
ln the fall of 1935, Professor G. E. C. Kaufmann organized a club on AIfred's campus for
the purpose of some day affiliating with this national organization. The club appointed Herman
DeLong chairman for the organization with Charles Derowitsch as secretary.
Shortly after its constitution was adopted, the Alfred Scouting Fraternity began to make
its influence felt on the campus. Their first major project was the sponsoring of a Father and
Son banquet for the Scouts of Steuben Council. On February lO, five hundred Scouts and their
dads assembled at the gymnasium for an indoor picnic with Andy Kerr of Colgate as guest
Not only did this provide an opportunity for the Scouts and dads to become acquainted with
Alfred, but it also gave the Scouting Fraternity a definite means of rendering service.
Paul Siple, one of the most outstanding Scouts of today, who spoke before assembly, spon-
sored by the fraternity, highly praised Alfred for founding such a group.
While the fraternity is still in its infancy it has proven itself worthy of a standing equal
to any other organization on the campus.

LeRoy Hodge Treasurer
The Alfred Forensic Society was organized in l932, largely through the efforts of Edward
Haines, its first president, and William Butler, who succeeded him. As a result of the renewed
interest in forensic activities, the club was able, in the second year of its existence, to participate
in intercollegiate debating. The club's activities were capably guided by Mrs. Warren P.
Cortelyou, who served as volunteer coach.
The club has gradually extended its list of activities, including participation in three
annual New York State Debating Conferences. The club has been active in the debate confer-
ences, several of its members having taken notable parts. LeRoy Hodge was elected chairman of
the Crime Committee at the Buffalo conference this year.
The Alfred Forensic Society had the privilege of debating with the Paul E. Titsworth
Debating Society of Washington College. This society was named in honor of Alfred's late
president, Paul E. Titsworth.
Mrs. Warren P. Cortelyou and Miss Mary K. Rogers have assisted the club inuits forensic
activities this year, Capable guidance has done much to make the Forensic Society an active
organization, and it is with regret that the Forensic Society sees its capable coach, Mrs.
Cortelyou, take a one-year leave of absence.

The Sodalitas Latina, organized at Alfred in February, l932, under the leadership of
Henrietta Burdick, gives those interested in the classics an opportunity for the exchange ot
ideas and the study of many interesting phases of the subiect. Membership is open to all
students of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences who have completed three semester hours
of College Latin.
The meetings of the group, which are held at regular intervals each month, are partially
educational and partially social. In addition to the regular programs provided at the meetings,
slides, movies and plays relating to Latin are occasionally presented tor the benefit ot all who
may be interested in attending them.
The importance of the Sodalitas Latina in stimulating an interest in the classics has been
clearly demonstrated by the enthusiasm of its members and by its steady growth from a small
number to its present twenty-eight members.
Among the most interesting events of the year to the members of the Sodalitas Latina was
the Latin banquet given recently. The scroll menus, written in the ancient language, introduced
the guests to food prepared in an authentic Roman manner. Roman implements were used in
the serving and consumption of of the food and a truly Latin atmosphere was preserved.
Der Deutsche Verein
Elias Foss - - President
Gladys Neu - Vice President
Lewis Ovenshire Secretary-Treasurer
The only requirement for admittance to Der Deutsche Verein is an active interest and an
aptitude for the study of German literature, life and customs. Any student who fulfills these
qualifications may make application for membership in the club, however, the practice is fol-
lowed of offering special invitations to those students whose work in German classes has been
outstanding. By this practice membership is retained as an honor and the efficiency and high
standards of the group are maintained.
Der Verein holds semi-monthly meetings which are unusually well attended. Professors
Myrvaagnes and Buchanan, of the German department, act as counselors and lead in inter-
esting discussions of their experiences in Germany. Other club members actively participate
in these discussions thus enlivening the meetings.
Each year the club sponsors the showing of a special motion picture film produced in
Germany. These undertakings are well patronized by the student body who follow the story
through the medium of English captions. This year's picture, "Waltz Time in Vienna,"
portrayed the life of Johann Strauss whose beautiful waltzes will be hummed forever.
ln the meetings of Der Verein, slides and motion pictures are frequently employed to
illustrate the phases and of art and industry on the Rhinelond. ln this manner, interest in
the club is fostered.

lf the first hundred years are the worst, the Brick hasn't many more troubles ahead, for it
has been the abode of Alfred students for more than seventy-five years of her first century.
Erected two years before the Civil War, this building was the scene of many sad partings
when the senior men marched away in response to Lincoln's call for defenders of the Union.
In later years the dormitory was used as a residence hall for both men and women.
During the World War the Brick served as a barracks and since that time it has been
made permanently a women's dormitory capable of housing more than a hundred women.
After the partial destruction of the building by fire in November, 1932, the exterior and
interior had to be rebuilt. The interior was also completely redecorated. The rooms, lounges
and dining-room were made more attractive and the kitchens were modernized.
The Brick is the home of most Alfred women during their freshman year and remains to
them always a symbol of the friendly spirit of Alfred. For many of them it is a real home
throughout their four years here and they come to regard it as the scene of many of the happiest
times of their college days.
The pleasantness of the dormitory life is due in no small measure to the graciousness of its
chaperone, Mrs. Paul E. Titsworth, who is friend and counselor to the Brick dwellers.

September l6, l935, saw 91 freshmen men enter the portals of Bartlett Dormitory for
the first time. Here they were to make their home and friends for their first year at Alfred
University. During the first week, which is known as Freshman Week, a smoker was held in
Bartlett, where the new college men were introduced to their future professors. Following the
tradition set up by previous classes at Bartlett, the election of the house officers soon followed.
Jack Masters was elected president, Robert Beers vice president, and Alvin lvler secretary-
Within a few weeks, after a redecoration of the lounge and the buying of a new radio,
Bartlett's first social function was held. This dance was held with the purpose in mind of
acquainting the members of the entire freshman class, both men and women, to each other.
During the year several other social functions were held, including a Christmas dance, featuring
Lennie Rubenstein's college orchestra, and an open house during the semester recess.
This year, Bartlett Dormitory has continued to live up to its reputation in the instigation of
college pranks. The "devil's pawn" has, perhaps, invented fifty new tricks and pranks at
Bartlett, but nevertheless everybody has seemed to survive the season for the best.

With the production of four one-act plays in the fall by Freshmen and Sophomores, the
club raised revenue to add to its equipment. Twenty-seven new pieces of scenery were built
for the plays,
The club's next act was to install a complete new lighting system. Part of the expense
was shared by the university and part by the Wee Play House.
In November, "The Late Christopher Bean" was staged under the direction of Miss Rogers
and enthusiastically received.
For the Ceramic Festival, "The Pleasure Garden" was selected and it was even more wildly
acclaimed. This play furnished unsurpassed opportunities for character impersonations and

give the undergraduates who, because of their activities and athletic ability are unable to gain
honors, something to work toward

several years. The scholastic requirement is an average l.3 index for three consecutive
semesters, The candidate must be a member of either the junior or senior class and prominent
in some line of endeavor. Membership is based on scholarship, personality, activities and

qualities worthy of a true athlete, loyalty to the university, high standards of college life and
outstanding activity in two major sports.
The organization cannot include in its membership more than one-tenth of the women of
the student body. The members must maintain an index of I. The director of athletics for
women is always an associate member.
ln the first two years of its existence, Alpha Tau Theta was very active in promoting
women's athletics on the campus and suggesting legislative measures to the Women's Athletic

and executed plans for the spring tennis tournament and class basketball teams. The fra-
ternity also sponsored a women's track meet in the spring of l932. lt popularized and

and make it a national one. Since that time, Spiked Shoe has expanded to sixteen chapters
throughout leading universities of America.
The general purpose of Spiked Shoe shall be in all ways possible to increase, to foster, and
to forward track as an amateur sport. lts specific purpose shall be to bring together in a closer
bond all those interested in track and cross-country as sports. To this end, the members of the
society may be chosen, not only from among letter men, but also from among those whose main
interest is track or cross-country, regardless of their ability, and from among coaches, managers
and officers of various universities.
lt is the purpose of this society to foster inter-class and intramural track meets, to incul-
cate interest in sub-collegiate institutions, to further the aims of track by serving as officials for

Coaches Wesbecker and Ferguson, the first Varsity "A" Club was formed in the interest of
bigger and better athletics and the promotion of true fellowship among the athletes.

raising the athletic standard of Alfred and inducing the high school athlete to come to A. U.
through circular letters and personal contact.

scholastic track meet and cross-country meet, except this year, due to repairs on the athletic
field, an information bureau which welcomes an attempt to solve the problems of the high
This club sponsors a dance each year usually on "home coming" day and is instrumental
in giving special recognition to those graduating athletes who have given so much in their four
years for the betterment of athletics at Alfred. N

with its alumni, For it is through contacts of former members that Alfred can be proud for
many of its achievements in the annals of sport.

discussions. The first semester's meetings were devoted to a study of the background of inter-
national relations dealing with economics, consular organization, peace machinery and the like.
The latter part of the year, the club concerned itself with discussion of prevalent problems.
Students presented papers and lead discussions.
New among its activities was a play evening by which means funds were secured for
