All h n
E ARE now living through a winter, long and
dark, which men call war. Although here
we do not experience the horrors of this
war, we live in the shadow of that horror cast from
other places. Since this is a man-made winter, it is
strange. lVluch of the sheer fun and beauty that be-
long to Allegheny has gone now, as it has every-
where. But the innate beauty is still here.
Thus it is at Allegheny. Weive lost much to a
marching child of our own. President Schultz said,
uAllegheny is, among other things, every student
who has ever walked these pathsf' Now parts of
Allegheny are everywhere, a hundred places far
from this secluded corner of Pennsylvania. We
can not call them back. They are gone from us.
It is winter here.
We think of them differently now. They are the
ones who used to jog leisurely along with us to
Boussong today they tramp laboriously to less
peaceful places. We remember them as they
watched with us the rhododendrons come to bloom
in May, now they lead tanks to shatter foliage in
ravines like ours. Once Bentleyis bell called them
for an eight o'clock in Alden, today a bugle wakes
their marching feet. When they were here with us,
they were placid, happy boys, this winter has
bred them into men of war.
Now we stand at Lord Gate, watching to see
them coming up the drive. But they do not come,
they are not here. Winter has come to Allegheny.
But as winter, the child of nature, spoils thc
blooming beauty of her mother only to vanish one
day at the whimsey of the spring, this, our winter,
born of men, will vanish one day in its turn as we
greet the greatest spring. One day Allegheny will
wait no more in vain at Lord Gate, for Peace will

THE CHARTER EXECUTIVES
OF THE 31ST C. T. D.
MAJQR ECHGLS AND STAFF IN CHARGE
OF LAST DETACHMENT,
APRIL 28, 1944
E DEDICATE our book to you, men of the
31st C. T. D., to the color and zest you
have brought to our campus. Among you
we have found much talent, interesting friends, and
never-to-be-forgotten memories. Your presence
here at Allegheny has been both a profitable and
an invigorating experience. You have, each one,
entrenched yourselves deeply within our hearts.
We shall always cherish reminiscences of the Grill
filled with uniforms, the sound of songs and
marching feet, the weekly Saturday Hretreatn, the
coming and going of you, our friends.
You have helped to make us conscious of our
precious heritage of liberty, justice, and the pur-
suit of happiness. You have, for a time, replaced
the boys from our campus called to colors. You
have become a part of our Allegheny and we are
proud to share her with you. Your uArmy Air
Corps Songn shall ever be whispered by the wind
through the tall pines and be echoed in the empty
halls of Caflisch.
With sincere regret we have watched you all
march away to new Helds of endeavor and training.
We bid you a fond Adieu and hope that someday
you will return, our military brothers at Allegheny.
ALLEGHENY7S FOURTEENTH PRESIDENT
OCTOBER 16, 1943
DR. JOHN RICHIE SCHULTZ
AD NIST .TIO
T IS indeed wise and just that we should place
the administration at the front of an Allegheny
yearbook. For although in our exuberance we
may fail to recognize it, the general administra-
tion of Allegheny makes our college much that
it is. '
One of the greatest advantages this college has
to offer is real co-operation and assistance from the
faculty. Through the faculty we are given the op-
portunity to broaden our own personalities by
gleaning from their academic knowledge and from
their experience as individuals much that we must
The administrative groups of Allegheny Htalk
things over." Theirs is a job of policy and sugges-
tion, a job which places in the hands of a rela-
tively small group of people, faculty and under-
graduates, much of the well-being of this college.
The administration of Allegheny is far from
confined to the room in Bentley in which the fac-
ulty meet on Monday nights-to discuss a new
schedule, the progress of a student, or a better
physical education program. The pale green walls
of that same room watch the Allegheny Under-
graduate Council as its members plot and plan on
Sunday nights, and the Senior Court as they face
Hthe week's delinquentsf, '
Ours is truly a co-operative government, con-
trolled not by a few, but by all Allegheny, her
students and her faculty alike. For it is through
the keen judgment and able discrimination of us
all that we can, and shall, keep alive a truly rep-
resentative college administration.

NE of the best criteria of a successful col-
lege year is the record of the Allegheny Un-
dergraduate Council of that year. We point
with pride to the A. U. C. of 1943-44, with its
president, Harry Conroy, Who, interested primarily
in a continuation of fundamental campus life, in-
stigated a reorganization and revitalization of
campus activities-the Kaldron, debate, publica-
tions, and the numerous clubs-in a planned pro-
A college calendar committee, composed of both
student and faculty members, was appointed to co-
ordinate all campus events, resulting in the best-
planned campus activity program Allegheny had
seen in a long time.
The Allegheny Advertising Agency with Betsy
Pfleeger as chairman Was set up as a central clear-
ing house for campus advertising. Working in
peration with the art department, the
agency made posters for campus meetings, dances,
parties, lectures, and drives and placed them at
strategic spots on campus.
Besides pulling activities out of the mire of War-
time apathy, the A. U. C. carried out definite p1'0j-
CCYS related to the war effort. The consolidated Re-
lief Chest, a new organization this year, embodied
in 0116 drive all the many drives for relief pr0jeCiS
each year. All students and faculty members were
solicited, resulting in the attainment of the goal of
32,000 Distribution of the money was made at the
end of the year to the Red Cross, Scholarship Fund,
World Student Service Fund, United Nations War
Relief and the Meadville Community Chest. Aub-
rey Crawford served as chairman of the comm
The War bond and stamps committee, headed by
.loan Hexter the first semester, and Richard Coon
the second semester, materially increased Alle-
gheny's contribution to the War effort. A Week's
concentrated drive was held in February, with
Sergeant Joseph Sorce, ex-'44, returning to give
it added impetus.
Furthermore, in co-operation with the Allegheny
Christian Council, the A. U. C. sponsored a series
of forums on post-War problems in which both
students and faculty members actively partici-
It is to his credit that Conroy achieved his goal
of co-ordinating campus activities, both wartime
and peacetime, and of giving them a fundamentally A
sound basis upon which to operate. lt is to the credit
of the entire A. U. C. that they carried through
a constructive program which has culminated in
MERICAN women have world-wide fame for
their desire to govern themselves. Here at
Allegheny the co-eds have set up an organi-
zation dear to all their hearts. Sometimes their
meetings become tiresome to attend-it being hard
to leave the grill or bridge games on Friday after-
noons. But woe would be unto him who tried to
take them away! They enjoy this self government,
this campus government far ahead of most col-
leges and universities. This all-potent organization
is known as the Associated Women Students. The
girls have modeled their government after that of
the United States. lt has three branches: the exec-
utive, composed this year of president, Carrie Em-
erson and vice-president, Emmy Jane Gould, legis-
lative, senators from the states of first Front, sec-
ond F ront, etc., and the judicial, Emmy Jane and
all her black-clothed friends. At weekly informal
meetings Carrie and her fellow workers formulate
the policies of the student government. The friend-
liness and work done here serve as a bond tying
together the whole school. Not so pleasant is the
work of Senior Court. There is no joy for these
senior women in judging their fellow students but
there is a satisfaction in knowing that here the
decisions are made by undergraduate students, un-
der uniform rules, and not by outside faculty rule.
A. W. S. holds its annual elections in the spring.
For days Brooks lobby is busy with co-eds hurried-
ly scratching down the names of their choice. Then
there are the exciting hours of waiting for the re-
sults. Finally comes the installation and into every
woman student's heart comes a new pride in the
government of her school. 1
There is another aspect of student government
which, though not so well-known as the A. W. S.,
is closely associated with the day-by-day living
of the women students. It is the Activities Board

that knew Doc s the last class that remembers the

the last class to have known a whole year of school

appear in compliance with a war-time Allegheny-
spring dances off campus, chapter parties, the
Winter Carnival, pep rallies and snake dances

the interfraternity Sing. Singers' trips, football
games. Yes, we've seen them disappear, weive giv-
en them up, but to us they are still an integral
part of the Allegheny we love, as are the men of
our class, the men who aren't here, who are some-
where else doing something less pleasant. We can't
think of the class of 7414 without meaning the class
of Bucky and Buck and Hoop and Bill Goodenough
Yet we are not solely senile reminiscers. We
have accepted the new Allegheny and have made
that too a part of our heritage. We,ve moved into
the modern new rooms in Walker with pleasure.
With the dearth of masculine company the girls
have learned to play together, something we'd
never bothered with before. We've played Battle-
ship and have tried our feminine minds at set-
tling the fate of the world over ham barbecues at
Georgeis. Weive been a general welcoming com-
mittee for all the men who've come back dapper

HESE, loyal Alleghenians every one, have been
enrolled in another school-the armed forces
of the United States of America. This school,
however, is not the one with which We who remain
at Allegheny are familiar.
These, our classmates, have been compelled,
Htheirs not to reason why,'7 to give up a peacetime
four years in a liberal arts college, to give up hopes
of graduate school and a career for the present-
all this, in order to obtain for the future these
things that they today must relinquish.
Their letters reveal how much Allegheny has
meant to them-Whether they have been here three
months or three years. We're doing our best to
keep Allegheny and its spirit alive for them, but
even our greatest efforts cannot repay them for
the sacrifice they are making for us, for Alle-
gheny, for their country-and perhaps, even the
Words are rather futile vehicles for the expres-
sion of deep emotion. Yet, here We shall attempt to
express our gratitude, and to let them know that
our most sincere Wish is to see them all hack at
Allegheny as soon as possible-pursuing their
own lives once more.

HE JUNIOR CLASS has had a shifting career.
The Allegheny we knew as freshmen has
changed. Professors came, taught, and left,
students enrolled, studied, and dropped out in fa-
vor of the army, navy, marines or medical school.
The navy arrived, trained, and left. Army air
corps cadets descended, wrested Caflisch from the
freshmen, marched, sang-in the rain-in the
snow-in the occasional sunshine, and dwindled
away. New courses were added, dropped, changed.
The T.N.T. plant grew up over night, and just as
quickly shut down. Basic A. W. S. permissions
for girls became less important as army time he-
came primary. The proud fraternity houses fell to
freshmen and hecame known ffor catalogue pur-
poses onlyj as Ridge, Gamble, Crawford, Cullum,
and Ross. Dr. Schultz succeeded Dr. Tolley. Army
slang and activities supplanted fraternity discus-
sions, next year, female gossip will take over all.
The class itself became hybrid as acceleration
speeded up graduation. Summer school was a
flourishing institution, not just a handful of stu-
dents. The freshmen and sophomore classes were
ever-present, large--too large for comfort. Even
Bentley had a new coat of paint. Pearl Harbor
changed Allegheny, and the Juniors with it.

It has been our desire to keep alive the cus-
toms passed along to us by the class ahead. We
have been working under the common difficulty of
lack of manpower, but it is such a common one,
we hesitate to complain.
At the start of our year, there were still enough
of our manly sex here to challenge the eager fresh-
men to the annual depantsing fight. The freshmen
jumped the gun and caught the boys with their
pants down. To this day, one fine pair of pants is
still unaccounted for. When the last seam was
rent asunder, the freshmen were found to be the
winners. In all modesty we can say it was not an
Our next task of orientating the greenhorns was
to squelch a major rebellion against wearing dinks.
This was accomplished in a most successful man-
ner by a few official upperclassmen threats.
There has been a banquet, in a true HC,est la
SUCITCH fashion without the benefit of elaborate
frills, but the important fact is-it was had.
There have been lapses where the class has not
appeared activeg that, however, was only on the
surface. Individually we have all been working.
You'll find us in all the activities. One of us is edi-
tor of the Campus. Many are in the Playshop or
Singers or holding class ofhces. We have been fil-
ling vacant places. To the best of our ability we
are holding the college to its well-loved pattern.
CLASS UF 194
, E WERE to be the class of '47, Allegheny
I College. We arrived on campus, just a
conglomeration of students from every part
of the country, strange people in a strange
place. But it wasn7t long until we realized that we
had something in common-we were the HF resh-
man" class, each of us participating in Freshman
Week. The professors, the buildings, and the
grounds were foreign until we had been here a
few days. The week passed quickly, with the test-
ing and the matriculation dinner. Then the veteran
upperclassmen were back. From this date on we
were known not only by our greenish look but also
by blue and gold dinks. After the first three months
we no longer minded wearing them, but it seemed
like ages until the Freshman men, fewer in num-
bers but just as hearty in spirit, liberated us in
the traditional fight. However, nothing could save
the girls from the dreaded stacking of the room.
When the Sophomores snake-danced into the
dining hall, we knew what to expect when we got
back to our rooms. Swearing vengeance through
the class of '48, we cleared everything away. And
with that, our initiation as Freshmen was over.
Now we belonged as a class. We had our officers
and our class meetings, and we felt that W6 were
3 united Whvle, working together. Our Freshman
dinner and our parties were successful. There was
the Tarbell tea and the coketail party to show
upperclassmen that we could do things, too. But
there were the traditional social events that were
new to us. The formal Christmas dinner and the
service in the chapel were beautiful. q v
First semester and the flurry of first exams went
quickly by. During the second semester, we gained
and lost new members. We were all acquainted
now. We knew the names of people as well as the
faces, and we all had our own special friends. Be-
fore we knew it, mid-semester had come and gone.
Spring and spring fever arrived on schedule, and
finally even May Day was in the past. When May
ll rolled around and we all said our good-byes
and, uI'l1 see you next fall," we had a lot to look
back on, quite a few memories to take away with
us. We knew what it was all about now. We had
finished our first year at college.
But there were a good many things about the
campus that had changed this year. Girls were
living in fraternity houses, air cadets were occupy-
ing freshman rooms at Caflisch, and there were
considerably fewer men to be seen about. For WC,
the class of 1947, were, without a doubt, the prod-
uct of a world at war.

HE 3lST College Training Detachment is an
' integral part of Allegheny. It has filled a
gaping vacuum on the campus for more than
a year. There were khaki splotches at the dances
and khaki in the grill. The Army Air Corps was
with us this year in full force.
The cadets came from the basic training at
either Greensboro, North Carolina, or Miami,
Florida. Here they were given courses in mathe-
matics, physics, English, geography, and history.
Their quarters at Caflisch were like a regular
army post in every respect. The cadet greeted the
morn at six o'clock and was busy with classes and
drill every minute of the day. After supper, he
had an open period until eight o'clock which he
filled with ease at the Grill and quick trips to
Brooks. Then the cadet had a two-hour study
period and finally taps at ten-thirty. On Saturday
afternoon and all day Sunday he had a free period,
but headquarters was full of applications for week-
end passes. The men took an hour of physical ed-
ucation every day. Even with snow on the ground
they were out doing their daily dozens.
The detachment has nothing but praise for Al-
legheny College. They appreciate the sacrifice in
time and effort the faculty made on their behalf.
They also value highly the Open House Teas given
at Brooks Hall by the girls, where the men enjoy
the company of the fairer sex.
While on the campus of Allegheny College, the
cadets functioned independently. They had their
own recreation center, Lee House, basketball and
softball tournaments, and even their own swing
band. This year, for the War Bond drive, the ca-
dets put on a rousing play, uPop to, Mister", sati-
rizing their army life. The men are all ardent bond
buyers and backed their campaigns to the hilt, as
testified by the slogans in Buter Hall.
When an Air Force unit leaves, the men are sent
to a pre-flight center for further instruction. .lust
before they leave, the college presents to them, at
a graduation exercise, certificates for the work
each cadet did at Allegheny. These certificates are
presented by Dr. Schultz.
The 3lst College Training Detachment left Al-
legheny in May of this year. This is because the
Air Force is lessening the number of colleges in
its air training program. 'lliey are missed by all
of us, especially the inmates of Brooks who have

frantic dashes in the interests of distribution were
added together to put the Literary Magazine into
the hands of the students four times this year.
Aiming to present a cross-section of our best
undergraduate writing, the Lit Mag attempted to
offset the more abundant contributions in the
poetry-short story line by urging the writing of
more non-fiction. A new department, NEGLECTED
BOOKS, was added to call student attention to some
of the better, little-read books.
A new twist was added to the custom of having
each issue criticized. Not only a member of the
Allegheny faculty, but a student, and a professor
from a neighboring college were invited to judge
Not unaware of its own shortcomings, the staff
devoted one issue to satirizing the gloomy note so
often characteristic of undergraduate writing in
hopes that future material will be of a less de-
lVluch of the work and much of the credit for
the Lit Mag can be traced to the editor, Dorothy
Schuchman, whose poems can be listed among the
best of the work published.
Aiding her by their work in various fields were
the staff members-Jean Merrill, Roberta Waite,
Nancy Sutton, Dick Andersen, Caroline Emerson,
Helen Houghton and Audrey Grimm.
The increased number of ucutsv which added to
the magazine's appearance were the work of the
art staff headed by Doris Larsen who was assisted
by Sara Carver and Alice Lowry. Mary Lou Sweet
was make-up editor. t -
HIS YEAR more than ever before THE CAM-
PUS has shown itself to be one of the most
vital groups at Allegheny. One of its main
goals has been to keep Allegheny servicemen in
touch with those people and experiences that were
once so real to them, but which today have become
only college memories. The letters of appreciation
received by the staff from these Alleghenians are
proof of the publication's success in attaining its
Despite the fact that the war has claimed most
of the men on the stall, THE CAMPUS, under the
able leadership of Caroline Snell last fall and
Mildred Ann Ditty who succeeded Carli as editor
in January, has continued to make its weekly ap-
pearance this year. Anyone dropping in at THE
CAMPUS oflice on third floor Ruter, either Mon-
day or Tuesday night, would find it a busy hive of
workers. It isnit until Tuesday night, though, that
things really start humming. Typewriters are kept
going full speed, while members of the staff des-
perately try to scare up a bit of news to fill in a
gap on one of the pages. Reporters call for last-
minute news items, and last but not least comes
the writing of the headlines, with the eternal di-
lemma of how to squeeze twelve letters in a line
where there should only be ten.
Now, the headlines having been written and
printed on the head sheet, the copy is safely tucked
into a brown envelope and entrusted to the care of
a staff member. Then down goes the staffs labors
to the Tribune office, over to Brooks by the twelve
oiclock curfew go the girls-and THE CAMPUS
goes to press for another week.
HERE is a strange, wonderful magic about
Singers . . . a thing no one can really ever
touch-but a thing that will last as long aS
people gather at 4:30 Monday afternoons to sing
for a while, laugh a little, and live a great dS-Hi ill
a very short time. There is something intangible
that fills the oratory when fifty voices till its walls,
there is something' that is stimulating, there iS
something that makes those fifty people proud . . .
and that something is the magic of the Singers.
At the first of the year it is always a little difii-
cult for the new Singer to learn that the choir does
not always sing when Luvy's hand goes down. Peo-
ple smile at him because he is new, muttering
something about udelayed attack". Then one day
that new Singer realizes that this choir sings to-
gether, that they are as one great voice rising and
falling as though throughimutual compulsion, that
in one small second a strange feeling fills those
fifty people and that suddenly they begin to sing--
together-and that feeling may strike anywhere,
any place . . . in the grille, in the chapel, up in
the ravine, or beneath the pillars of Bentley. Sud-
denly that new Singer that Singers do not
sing because they are told to, they sing because
they want to, because for a few minutes every day
Singing is the most important thing in the world.
SingC1'S this year has been a singular thing, but
as always a fine thing. Occasionally it looked 33
though Allegheny Singers had been reborn as 3
girls, choir, but then a stray tenor or Albright
would wander in and the music took on a rounder
quality. But regardless of the impressive profusion
of altos and sopranos, and theisprinkling of male
representatives, there was a special frosting on
the musical cake. This year, Luvy dusted off the
old music . . . VVAKE AWAKE and DECK THY-
SELF, and even OH, SING UNTO HIM, which
any old singer could render backwards and fore
wards and inside and out. They could shut their
eyes and dream of the years ago, but it was seldom
necessary, for instead of shutting their eyes, they
could listen, for it was the same beautiful music,
the same fine spirit hiding beneath new faces, it is
true, but there, always there.
Singers will never change. As long as there is a
small group huddled over cokes in the grille sing-
ing loud and long the old hymns, as long as there
are people in Third Walker Lounge singing sweet,
low ballads bursting with close harmonies that
hurt the untrained ear, as long as a few p6OpiB
come happily and slowly over the ravine and OH
to the dorm singing and singing and being h-HPPYQ
as long as the frolicking strains of Holali and
Czecho and Kathrine's Wedding Day come through
the stillness of the night, Singers will be the same.
Wars and sadness cannot kill the Singers, for ha?
piness and wonderful fun have made it.

LLEGHENY,S Playshop conducted another busy
season despite the manpower shortage. lts
policy was better productions even at the
cost of cutting down the number of them. Ham-
mers pounded noisily and brushes painted their
way through nine busy months. The lack of the
stronger sex on campus gave Mr. Hulburt a hard
race with Uncle Sam, who was busy issuing parts
in olive-drab. But on the whole, Father John kept
one jump ahead of the United States Army, and
got amazing performances out of the few inexperi-
e-nced men left on campus. '
ONE SUNDAY AFTERNOON opened the
season at the Playshop complete with barbershop
chair, German Band, and high stiff collars. The
play was a simple true page from theiStory of
. , Q 2:
America, and was met with enthusiasm by all
Allegheny. The actors, stage hands, and make-up
girls all contributed in turning out a good show
besides having a wonderful time doing it. fAh!
those bridge games in the prop roomlj Then Came
the magical ALADDIN for the kiddies of Mead,-
ville and Allegheny College. Again the college
kids gave the lVleadville ,youngsters a rush for the
too few seats. r
The season's hit came under the title, ARSENIC
AND OLD LACE. The racy, riotous comedy was
produced with an excellent cast under the direction
of Mr. Hulburt. Many who had seen this funny
murder farce on Broadway claimed that the
Playshop presentation was every bit as good. A.
repeat performance was given in January as the
f - X, A .
. A .N3,M..
main feature of the second annual community-
college war bond drive. .
For the last half of the year the workers in Ar-
ter's cellar concentrated on lVloliere,s comedy of
manners, SCHOOL FOR HUSBANDS. The pro-
duction of this play was a difficult job because of
the poetic dialogue, the elaborate and colorful
costumes, and the songs and dances that had to be
perfected. The combined efforts of everyone made
possible one of the most lavish productions ever
'attempted here on the hill. The play was so good
that the damp musty halls disappeared to make
way for the gay, dashing French Court.
There were two other productions at Allegheny
that must be added. The first was the Air Corps
Musical Show, POP TO, MISTER. It was written,
directed and produced by the Cl. men of Alle-
gheny. A Xlot of praise and admiration goes to
these boys, who though busy drilling and school-
ing, gave their time and energy freely to produce
this show. The last production to be mentioned was
Alphie Fegley's puppet show, JACK AND THE
BEANSTALK. It was so new and interesting to
Father John that he often neglected his own work
to help make Hdolliesf' Once again the youngsters
and those young in heart gathered at the little
theatre and saw the thrilling story.
Thus this year's productions are over but al-
ready new plays are being read, costumes sorted
and preparations are going on for next year. So
the Playshop, like all of Alleghenyis best-loved
traditions, is not dying out in these troubled times
but rather going ahead stronger than ever.

The trips and activities of its members, as well as
th0S6 of the freshman debate class which meets
Weekly, are arranged by the Philo-Franklin Union.
This year the debaters participated in inter-
collegiate debates, as well as being represented at
a student peace conference at Pennsylvania State
College. Intercollegiate speaking activities were
curtailed considerably because of transportation
difliculties and general lack of interest on the part
of other colleges.
Philo-Franklin is duly recognized on the cam-
pus for its essential part in Allegheny activities
and is represented by its president on the Alle-
gheny Undergraduate Council.

FR TER ITIE
N A WAR-TORN world, the Allegheny campus was
not without its share of the strife. The frater-
nities have been the defensive combatants of
this area, and the sororities, as is often the fate of
the neutral element, have been greatly affected by
Beginning with the capture. of fifty-odd men in
the middle oflast year, the armed services have
levelled constant attacks at the fraternities, until
the Greek forces have been whittled to twenty per
cent of their original strength. A second barrage
came at the hands of the college administration,
who were victorious last September in a deftly
executed campaign to capture the fraternity houses.
Thus placed on the defensive, the once disunified
bands of warriors have found it to their mutual
advantage to unite under the generalship of the
lVI. U. C. president and his staff. The united effort
has resulted in two interfraternity dances staged
in the Brooks arena, and in handball, ping-pong,
and bridge tournaments. But the major coup was
realized when the Greeks took Brooks 'Hall by
storm with an interfraternity serenade, in which
one hundred men participated. Their efforts were
received with hearty enthusiasm.
The sororities, while not directly involved in
the skirmishes, have felt the results. They had no
trouble in filling their pledge quotas, but they
found it increasingly difficult to achieve one of
their first objectives--that of helping their younger
sisters to develop socially. The difficulty can be
attributed to the shortage of manpower essential
to any such objective. In an effort to relieve the
pressure, the sororities have increased inter-
sorority functions where co-operation is the key-
note. Individual relations with sorority sisters
have been strengthened, and the groups have come
to depend more and more on themselves. Through
grill parties especially, they utilized the proximity
of the C. T. D. to overcome their handicap.
An optimistic prophecy of the future of the
Greek societies seems justified. Indeed, the change
in old standards and methods, is serious, but the
sound principles at the basis ififfifthe organizations
remain unchanged, and a short period of recon-
struction will take them back to normalcy.
The Pan-Hellenic Council, composed of representatives
from each of the six womenis Greek-letter fraternities, de-
velops rushing rules as well as co-ordinating general sorority

Q . ,
The Menas Undergraduate Council, a body representative
of all the men students on campus, has as its main function
the regulation of fraternity rushing. Its scope extends further
to intramural activities among organized groups of men, as
well as sponsoring a formal dance each year.

N SPITE of the manpower shortage, Allegheny
still managed to carry on her athletic pro-
gram. Instead of having varsity sport, the col-
lege decided to center the attraction on intra-
mural activities. For the new students who entered
the college in the summer for the accelerated pro-
gram, a tennis tournament was held during the
last two sessions with Harry Conroy as the winner
and Jim Wsalkei' as runner-up.'
In the fall, in place of the regular football, a
soccer tournament was organized, with three teams
under Cal Miller, Franlq Fuhrer, and Sumner
Nichols competing with each other. Fuhreris team
won the tournament, winning five games and los-
ing one. Most of the boys in the college partici-
pated on the three teams and the enjoyment of the
sport led to a greater desire for more.
Later on, a group of ambitious and talented
players expressed their desire to form a varsity
basketball team. Their wish to play was so strong
that a team was formed and Bob Garbark served
as the coach. The only letterman on the team was
Conroy, who was the high scorer of the season.
The team won 7 games out of 12.
LLEGHENY was represented by only one var-
sity team during the 1943-44 sport season
Due to the curtailed enrollment of men
students, football, swimming, tennis, and track
were dropped from the athletic curriculum. Bas-
ketball remained and in this sport the Gators dis-
tinguished themselves by winning seven games
While losing live.
Coach Bob Carbark built his squad .around one
letterman, Harry Conroy. Jim Jenkins and Lee
Donaldson were the only other upperclassmen, the
balance of the roster being composed of freshmen.
Competition was ditlicult to schedule as most of the
district schools dropped the cage sport. In spite
of this and a constantly changing team personnel,
uGarby7' guided the Blue and Cold through a
Letters were awarded to Captain Harry Conroy,
Frank Fuhrer, Bill Kirkpatrick, Lee Donaldson,
Sumner Nichols, Roger Bailey, Jim Jenkins and
Cal Neithamer. Class numerals went to squad
members Hart, Dart, Roese, Matthews, and man-
agers Berlowe and Schutz.

The war has placed
I a new emphasis on
womenis physical education.
SHARP autumn breeze sweeps across the play-
ing field. lnthe distance one can see the
hazy mountains, the sun goes under a cloud.
'6Looks like rain," someone says. The mud-
spattered players turn their eyes skyward, a
whistle blows, they continue the game, the ball is
hit, shins are cracked and sticks are broken. Four
o'clock comes, red-cheeked girls, tired and weary,
but happy, slowly trudge homeward. Days and
days of more practice despite the weather, then at
last the big event-Playday with Edinboro and
Westminster-and finally victory.
Winter comes with its snow and slush. In the
evening, little groups wend their way back and
forth across the campus to the gym for volleyball,
girls return only to wake up the next morning
with battered fists and sore muscles.
One must not forget the good old Wednesday
night swimming for everyone, the Terrapins with
endless rehearsals, elaborate costume designing,
and finally the Water Pageant with its portrayal
of the months. Remember March, the lion and the
lamb, April with its showers and May with its
The weather is still bad, so one turns to basket-
bali fwith a little skiing on the sidej. The crowd
is cheering, the players are tense, only ten seconds
more to play with the score tied. A foul has been
called-a free shot-the ball is in the air and the
point is made. The other team has a chance, play

is resumed, suddenly a shrill whistle blows-a
player cringes with pain-Time Out-another
bruised finger or banged knee, the game continues,
another basket, the final whistle sounds, it was a
close game but the losers are good sports about it.
The players return to the dorm with aching mus-
cles and with a blissful feeling of exhaustion.
Spring arrives, blustery and cold with its cease-
less snow. The ping-pong tournament rages on with
Jinny Chester as final victor. HPhy', and Millie and
the board still labor over the new constitution. An-

HE TRADITIONAL May Day program was this
year enlarged into a Spring Festival, Which
ran the course of an entire Week-end full of
uQn with the Dance", featuring modern dancing,
Was the opening contribution of Qrchesis to the
program on Friday evening. The festivities con-
tinued on Saturday with an all-college sing and
the climax of the Week-end, the crowning of the
May Queen. The colorful pageantry coupled With
beautiful Weather made the event perfect in the
eyes of the numerous spectators' A formal dinner
in honor of the Queen and her court was held in
Brooks Hall, followed by the annual lntersorority
Sing. The May Day dance, Where the faces of
many Alleghenians now in the service were seen,
ended a glorious Saturday in the eyes of Alle-
ghenians. The events in honor of the Queen and
her court came to an end with a tea Sunday after-
noon in Brooks Hall.
The success of the festival was due to the un-
tiring effort of the Physical Education department
and the Women's Athletic Association.

ff LLEGHENY is the tower of old Bentley,
whose bell has rung out the summons to
class and chapel for thousands of students,
it is the Reis Library, Ruter Hall, Ford
Chapel, Arter, and Caflisch and Hulings, it is the
Rustic Bridge, the Alumni Gardens, the Ravine,
Bousson Farm, Montgomery Field, it is every stu-
dent who has ever walked these paths and every
teacher who has presided in these class rooms, it
is every president who has taken a place in the
distinguished list of its executives, it is every
trustee, every benefactor who has given of his
time and substance to make Allegheny great, it
is every alumnus who has gone out from his stu-
dent days to make a place for himself on the
greater campus of life. -
'4All these have merged to form that intangible,
invisible, but very 'real quality that marks this
spot. It is this living, throbbing personality that
is our heritage today. At the name of Allegheny
we feel a rush of tears to our eyes, a thrill of
pride in our hearts, a new courage as we face the
time ahead. The past inspires us with the realiza-
tion of achievement nobly accomplished. The fu-
ture beckons us with its promise of opportunity.
In this spirit we- face the complex problems con-
fronting our nation in the coming days, the chal-
lenge offered by millions of boys and girls who
look to the colleges for leadership in a perplexing
post-war world, the hope of all citizens for a new
inspiration, a new opportunity, and a better life
for all. In this spirit, with a full realization of all
that has gone before, we pledge our best to make
a brighter, fairer Allegheny in the years to comefwf
flfxcerpt from the inaugural
address of Pres. John Richie Schultz
Before the Kalclron of 1944 takes its place upon
the shelves of time, let us, in passing, pause to ex-
press appreciation to those who have played a
major role in the creation of this book.
So here's thanks to every member of the staff,
to Mary-Helene Hillstrom, who was always right
where she was needed with the information Want-
ed, to Middy Ann Ditty, that diminutive dynamo
who saved our copy situation, to Dorothy-Jeanne
Butt and Helen Creeger, who cheerfully shouldered
the editorial difficulties at a crucial moment, to
the mounting staff who did much more than mount
and never once hesitated to co-operate despite the
constant difficulties and discouragementsg and
those priceless others who came down in the last
hectic hours to give freely of their time, never
asking for an acknowledgment other than the ma-
terialization of their book. To them belongs the
real credit for the Kaldron of 1944.
It is the hope and wish of every member of the
staff that the Kaldron of 1944 may serve, in later
years, to recall the many memories of joyous col-
lege days Well spent. If this end but be achieved,
our efforts will be Well spent.
