When the Class of i936 entered American International College, its enrollment
far exceeded that of any previous class, and as the college years marched slowly by,
it has become known, not so much for its quantity as for its quality. ln four years
many things can happen. Look with us as we turn our eyes back to the varied pano-
rama of these years.
Freshman year sped by. Gur time was crowded with new interests, not the least
of which was spending idle moments in reverent contemplation of those dignitaries,
the Seniors. The highlight of our social life was the Saturday night dances which
helped to create the unusually strong bond of friendship existing between our mem-
bers. Long trips to gamesea gulping fear at the first set of finals-a new feeling of
friendship, rather than of awe, for our teachers-a happy wonder at a certain in-
definable freedom in college life which seemed to imply, "lt's up to you now,"-all
these things impressed upon us the subtle difference between prep school and college
We were learning many things, chief among them was responsibility.
ln our second year a certain sense of loyalty, a companionship fostered by pride
in our class, and a desire to be a part of the success of our college, crept in and
urged us on. A precedent was created that year in the Ship Party which was so
thoroughly enjoyed by the faculty as well as the students. And we cannot separate
from "Soph" memories, the hilarious entertainment provided one evening by the
WAA. in which horses iigged, pseudo-teachers pranced, land, incidentally, the real
ones laughed like true sportsl, and Wild Nell made her "final sacrifice." Thus, the
first half of college life passed, and although in the scales all was not pleasure, the
side of happiness outweighed,
When we became Juniors we were fully aware of the fact that strength lay in
combined effort, Perhaps because of the last-minute scurry and worry preceding each
venture, sly Fortune chose to smile kindly on our endeavors. Our Mid-Winter Formal
was a joy in every way. With spring came Junior Week, and in spite of the few
expected casualties that are bound to come with open house, receptions, teas, and
dramatic entertainment, it was all that could be desired, and terminated with a
country-club Prom that was inspiring beyond our highest hopes. Our third year was
over, and although we looked ahead with eagerness, we also looked back with fond
Our expectations for our Senior year were not misplaced It has proved as fine
as the rest. ln the' fall the search for a new idea in the way of entertainment ter-
minated in the l-lic-l-lop where reputations of sophistication and propriety were shat-
tered because, if anyone vied with the daring students in appearing "farmerish," it
was the professors. Courage, gleaned from previous good fortune, induced us to
venture on another experiment-that of publishing a yearbook and help was offered
from every angle. The long-awaited dignity came when we realized that at last we
had a distinct purpose in life and a desire to fill the place for which we were pre-
pared. Life became a more serious thing, but we were instilled with ideals that upheld
Now we are on a new threshold and we look with longing at the safe years
behind us, but a certain spirit of cooperation, loyalty, sincerity, and truth has been
gained which we feel sure will stand us in good stead in the future.

The Sophomore Ship of State
February lst, l935, stands as a great day in the history of the class of '38,
Sophomores to you, now existing as one of the leading composite parts of the student
body at A.l.C. February l saw for the Sophomores the dawn of organized activity in
the affairs of the school. The group of lively students had withstood the "trial by
fire," in the freshman initiation period, hectic days for some of our members, and
when the second semester rolled around the Freshmen launched their ship of state
on the deep and somewhat troubled waters of Al Sea.
The first meeting of our crew, under the supervision of the student council,
found most of the gobs ready for action, and on February 5th and 7th officers were
chosen from the ranks, The ballot box proved a candid barometer of the desires of
the crew in selecting officers for the voyage ahead. Our navigation plan, in the form
of a class constitution, was submitted to the "Admiralty" and legally accepted on
March l9th. Nine days farther out of port, on the 28th, it was voted to join the rest
of the fleet in having one official school ring.
A poor ship it would be that could offer no form of pleasure, or program of
entertainment, to those on board. Certain deviations from the set course must be
made to keep the spirit and the interest of the crew at the necessary pitch for
progress. With this in mind, a dance committee, with Nellie Nlihle as chairman, was
chosen and given a lifeboat with which to do a little exploring in the "sea of social
functions." On lvlay l4th we glided into the port of Somers, Connecticut, and tied up
at the pier of Courtney's barn for the successful and much remembered Freshman
The urge to dabble in school politics now swept over us and a cry went up for
our share in the organized government. Consequently, on May l8th, Shirley Provost,
Robert Drake, and Robert Barker were elected as councilors in the Student Govern-
ment, with Hazel Slevin and Wallace Krusell being elected as nominees for member-
at-large positions in that governing body.
Soon it was June l2th and the blanket of wanderlust now settled down upon us,
and we departed on our separate ways to enjoy the pleasures of summer on "the
beautiful isle of somewhere."
September found most of our crew once more at their accustomed stations, now
in the role of Sophomores, and on the 20th, a deck-call was issued for the election
of a new group of officers, Wallace Krusell as president, Nellie Mihle as vice-
president, Dorothy Jensen as secretary, Paul l-lastings as treasurer, and Robert Drake
as member-at-large, were the ones in whom we vested authority and power to pilot
our stately ship on the second leg of our scholastic sail.
And now it was our turn, as Sophomores, to "frolic with the freshmen," and
bring to them whenever possible, hours of trial and tribulation, We found a group
of special trouble-thinker-uppers, and their functions can best be pictured by the
luckless "frosh" who came under their influence.
Without much more ado, a course was laid for the Sophomore Dance, and a
committee was selected to study the charts, and to maneuver the ship once more into
the warm and tropic isles of the dance. This dance was held at l3reglio's on December
l6th and an accomplishment it was.
The waves of time slip swiftly beneath the prow of our good ship, and we find
ourselves approaching the end of the second leg of our journey. We stand with faces
to the future, confident that for us, life will bring success, and that success will be
won, in a large measure, as the result of our training as A.l.C,-MEN.

The Freshman Class History
Remember that first day at AIC? We were just a little uncertain as to what
to do. We collected in little knots around the campus, mode acquaintances, talked
about the football team, and classes, and college. We watched the upperclassmen
curiously, somewhat envious of their assurance and their calm. We were rather put
out by the contemptuous glances of some, warmed and gladdened by the friendly
smiles of others. Later we discovered the OK. and soon realized how great was its
importance to the average A.I,C.'er.
Before long we got into the swing and began to move along with A.l.C. life.
We grew more and more confident and began to think of ourselves as full-fledged
college students. Then along came Initiation Week. The Sophomores, being in the
caterpillar stage, took it upon themselves to show us just how lowly and mean was
our position, Ah, the indignities that were heaped upon us, the humiliations we
suffered! But we went not unavenged.
At last came the climax of Initiation Week, Freshman Night. Who of us can
forget that eventful October eve? "Breathes there a man with soul so dead," that he
cannot but thrill to our deeds of valor on that memorable night? Surely, they will
be emblazoned in letters of gold on the pages of AIC. history. Of how we took
our stand in Science I-lall, how we barricaded the doors, how bucket after bucket was
passed up by willing hands and filled with water, of how the enraged Sophomores
stormed our embattled citadel and how again and again they were repulsed by our
aquatic accuracy, of their treacherous and violent entry and the accepted truce, of
their perfidy in kidnapping Roland "Svengali" Tessier, and the intended immersion
of that intrepid youth in the icy Watershops, of the daring rescue effected by fear-
less "Babe" ancl his "Stooges", of all these deeds and many more must future
AIC. students be told, Indeed we may well be proud. Assuredly, that glorious night
is forevermore distinguished from all other nights.
And so we moved along, The intramural soccer games afforded our members
an opportunity to display the latest in men's sport wear. Soon we were inaugurated
into that greatest of student miseries-cramming for mid-years. But we breasted
the tide of exams and broke through, weary and spent, but more or less intact. Now
we were veterans. We even viewed the new mid-year students with a certain superior
disdain. We had had our trials,
We began to think of organizing. Under the guidance of the Student Govern-
ment we had our first class meeting. A nominating committee was chosen which
then proceeded to draw up a slate of candidates for office. We elected "Ted" Con-
nors, president, "Babe" Meacham, vice-president, I-lendericka Daniels, secretary,
Betty Krusell, treasurer, and I-larry Daum, member-at-large,
"I-lappy is the country that has no history," some sage once said. But our record
must stand in contradiction. lt is doubtful whether any freshman class before us ever
undertook so ambitious a program and it is equally doubtful whether any class
ever found so much enjoyment in its undertakings.
It is with mingled feelings that we look back on this, our first year at AIC.
We have a great pride, a deep satisfaction in our accomplishments, and yet a certain
regret that it went by so fast, a reluctance 'at letting it go. But we think of the
Seniors and are comforted because for us there are other years.

The Association includes in its membership all students who are enrolled in
three or more courses,
Several activities such as the Yellow Jacket, the Debating Society, and the
Eorum are supported wholly, or in part, by the Association, Eor the purpose ot such
financial support, a tee ot two dollars per year is levied on each Association member.
The governing bodies ot the Association are the Senate, the Council, and the
Eaculty-Student Advisory Board. The Senate is the executive body and is composed
ot representatives trom each class, The Council is composed ot one representative
from each extra-curricular activity on campus and has the power to initiate resolu-
tions tor Senate action. The Faculty-Student Advisory Board is empowered to grant
charters to new organizations and has final approval over financial matters, The
three bodies are to some extent interlocking with one or more ot the Association
otticers being members ot each body.

The idea ot a year book tor AIC. had been growing tor several years but it
wasn't until the tall ot nineteen hundred and thirty-tive that any action was taken
to make such an idea a reality, The Senior class appointed a committee to obtain
definite information and to ask the cooperation ot the student body in such an
undertaking, From the work ot this committee plans for the year book were drawn
up. A name contest was sponsored and atter a great deal ot discussion the "TAPER,"
symbolizing the guiding light of the college, was chosen. This name was submitted
by Miss Lydia Whitehead.
The underclassmen were more than willing to lend a helping hand and repre-
sentatives trom the Sophomore and Junior classes were selected to act as assistants
in the various departments. It was the fine cooperation and enthusiasm ot the entire
college which made it possible to issue this book.
The nineteen hundred and thirty-six "Taper" marked the beginning ot a publi-
cation which will record from year to year the history-making events of our college.
May it grow as time goes on.

The history ot the school paper at A.lrC. is a story ot continuous development.
As the character ot the college has changed, the paper has altered its content, its
formation, and its purpose,
Six years ago, and tor several years previous to that time, the A.I.C. paper was
called the "World Wide Messenger." This name reflected the character ot the col-
lege at the time, as the students were from all over the world. ln l932, however, the
college was comprised mostly ot American young men and women, and thus an
alteration was necessary in the character ot the school paper. As a result, "The
Quill," a combination news and literary magazine, published monthly, was formed.
The journal continued in this way tor two years until rising expenses made it impos-
sible tor the magazine torm to be carried on. For this reason, the student body was
torced to halt the publication ot any paper tor almost a year.
ln March, l934, the Zeta Chi Fraternity made an attempt to supply the demand
for a school paper by beginning the publication ot a mimeographed sheet called the
"Yellow Jacket." ln this torm, the paper was published tor approximately a year with
the editorial, business, and circulation statts entirely in the hands ot the fraternity.
ln April, l93S, however, the fraternity realized that the true tunction ot a school
paper could not be best served by so restricted a medium. Therefore, the question
ot having a more representative school newspaper was placed betore the school as a
whole. A statt was selected trom the student body, the new and present form ot the
"Yellow Jacket" was adopted, and publication commenced. At present, the paper is
received by every one who is a member ot the Student Association, and it serves as
an intormative and unitying intluence in the lite ot the undergraduate,

The VVomen's Athletic Association was first organized in the fall of l932, under
the leadership of Miss Calkins and Miriam Brown. Every girl automatically became a
member of the organization upon enrolling in the college, whether or not she par-
ticipated in any athletics For two years WAA. supported its own varsity basketbali
and tennis teams through the medium of dances, entertainments, and bazaars, all
of which were very successful, socially and financially.
ln i935 some of the students saw the need for reorganizing the association. A
committee, together with Miss Davis, Director ot Physical Education, drew up a new
constitution. This constitution provides that only those girls interested enough in
some sport to take part in that sport throughout its entire season can be members.
They must be recommended to the Executive Council by the representative of the
sport in which they are interested.
This year has been spent primarily in setting up the organization, although
there have been several functions of the social nature. Qualifications for each sport
have been decided upon and a committee has worked out a point system by which a
girl may earn a letter or numerals. Dr. Newton and Mrs. Eddy have been chosen as

devoted its monthly lecture meetings to the study of economic problems, the most
recent and improved methods of business and the comparison ot the various depart-
ments ot industry Leading personnel directors, bankers, and manufacturers have
imparted such knowledge as is essential to the intellectual well-being of "young
budding" business men and women.
Since the organization's establishment, it has been successful in stimulating its
members both intellectually and socially. Others have sought its recourse, finding
much profit in open torum discussion.

The Science Club was organized in April, l934, by a group of students who were
interested in obtaining more knowledge about current scientific problems and devel-
opments than could be obtained in the ordinary manner. Its purpose is to have
discussions by the individual students, to be given before the club. Thus, it affords
a general fund of information for those who are specializing in one science, and
could not obtain the information in any other way.
ln addition to the discussions given by the members, the club holds several
public meetings during the year, at which time speakers of scientific importance
lecture before the club members and all those of Springfield and vicinity who wish to
attend. The club has grown from an original membership of about ten to the present
enrollment of about twenty-five.
It is hoped that in the future the club will continue to contribute greatly to
the dissemination of scientific knowledge in the college.

The International Relations Club was founded in IQ34 and was comprised chiefly
of members of the International Relations class. The officers for the first year were
as follows: President, William Jones, Vice-President, Paul Lyman, Secretary, Elizabeth
Bridge, Treasurer, Clinton Bowen, Faculty Adviser, Professor Wiel, Although it was a
new organization, several activities were carried on in the first year including repre-
sentations to the International Relations Club Conference at Wellesley, to Foreign
Policy Association Meetings, and to discussion groups at various other colleges, In
IQ35, other groups on the campus became interested in the club, and members of
the liberal arts, business, and science departments joined in the discussions. Several
important speakers were heard on such problems as the Sino-Japanese problem, the
Ethiopian controversy, and Naval Limitations.
Because of its splendid and constructive purpose, the International Relations
Club has become of great importance to those students who are vitally and keenly
interested in international problems of today. The purpose of the organization is to
bring the student into closer contact with the problems dealing with international
relations, and to give him an opportunity to avail himself of the primary information
concerning movements of international concern, through study, research, and dis-

The Student Forum is an outgrowth of an older organization, the Campus
Fellowship. In the fall of I934 there was held at Northfield the organizational con-
ference for the launching of the Student Christian Movement in New England, The
delegates from AIC. became interested in an affiliation and accordingly there
emerged the present Forum.
The structural organization itself consists of five members, of which James
MacArthur is chairman, and of four standing committees: speakers, deputation,
publicity, and social
The members carefully drew up a purpose, which, recently restated, reads that
the Forum "is a fellowship of students united in an effort to gain a clearer conception
of the fundamentals of Christianity, and to apply them to their lives and to current
problems." The Forum program has not been as well developed nor as adequate a

Since the year l932, the schedule ot debates has increased from tour in that
year to twenty-one tor the season i935-36. In the period ot tour years, the name ot
AIC. in debating circles has expanded trom areas ot Massachusetts and Connecti-
cut to the states ot New Hampshire, Maine, New York, and Rhode Island. Such
colleges and universities as the following have been added to the debating schedule
during the past tour years: Boston College, Bates, Connecticut State, St. Michaels,
Boston and Clark Universities, and the universities ot Vermont, New I-lampshire, and
AIC. has also had a part in a new teature, namely, radio debating, The tirst
debate with the University ot Maine was o radio debate over station WLBZ ot
Bangor with William Jones and David Keete representing A.l,C. Robert Burpo,
Donald Clancy, and William Jones represented A,l.C, in its tirst debate with Boston
University over station WAAC,
The season ot I935-36 was the most intensive ever attempted by the team and
was the most successful one. The most popular subjects this season were "Socialized
Medicine," and "The Right ot Congress to Override Decisions ot the Supreme Court."
This year has climaxed to a certain extent the ettorts ot the post tew years to bring
the intercollegiate competition ot the outstanding colleges and universities to A.l.C.

The Dramatic Club, the oldest student organization at American International
College, will observe its tenth anniversary in the fall of l936. T
This organization was formed under the direction of Professors l-lazel E, Fosgate
and Dallas I.. Sharp, lr., at the eager request of the students of AIC. The majority
of these were foreign students, and it is interesting to know that the young man
who worked with the faculty members in planning this constitution was an Armenian
refugee, I-lrant Bardoony. The constitution which these people formed remained as it
was until a few years ago when due to the reorganization of the student body, the
Dramatic Club, which had been a part of the Campus Fellowship, found it necessary
to form a new constitution, At this time permission was granted by the Administra-
tion and the student body that the Dramatic Club be the only organization on
campus which could produce plays. Up to this time every organization had been
giving its plays, and there was little opportunity for the Dramatic Club to function.
lt is gradually putting itself in a position to compete with the Dramatic Clubs of
the larger colleges of the country, Its greatest success of this year was the mythof
logical comedy, "Pygmalion and Galateaf'

Its history is rather briet as the club is in a period ot development. It was
organized in the spring ot l935, on the initiative of the advanced classes ot German
under the advice and encouragement at Miss Littletield, head ot the German De-
partment. At this time, Minnie Schultz was elected chairman pro tem, and a com-
mittee consisting ot the chairman, Alba Lazzaris, and I-lerman Adams drew up a
workable set ot by-laws which were later accepted, and otticers were elected.
Membership was to be limited to upperclassmen, but it was voted that German l
students obtaining an average ot 85 per cent or over would be accepted.
The tirst lecture ot the year, i935-l936, was given on December IO by Dr,
Gordon I.. Gillqey at the South Congregational Church, who described conditions in
Germany tram his own observations and spoke an the present movement and the lite
at I-litler. On December IS, Mr. Paul Dietz, actor and dramatic interpreter ot the
Carl Shurtz Memorial Foundation ot Chicago, gave readings trom the classic and
modern German literature which were enjoyed by the local German organizations as
well as the student body.
Menls Glee Club
The Men's Glee Club was organized tour years ago. Up until this year the
membership did not exceed fifteen This year under the guidance of Mr. Wood-

the men's voices have developed until the group singing is on a par with other
colleges. On December l9 the Glee Club gave its first annual concert at Hope
Church auditorium. This will be an annual affair. During the second semester the
Club song over radio station WMAS.
Plans being made this year include a three-day trip through New England, giv-
ing concerts at leading colleges.
Only a few members are being lost through graduation so there will be a large
nucleus to carry on next year. Mr. Charles Woodbury is the director ot the club.

The Wornen's Glee Club was organized the first part of October, l935. lt has
been making unbounded strides ahead during the year, This club began with a
membership of sixty-three and that number was retained until the end of the first
semester. At the beginning of the second term in the school year it was deemed
advisable to lower the membership of the club to our present total of forty-two,
The interests of the club have been ably forwarded by Dr. Woodbury, the director,
who has given much time and effort that it might grow into an admirable institu-
tion of the college.
Many successful concerts have been given. One at l-lopedale, followed by a joint
Men and Women's Glee Club home affair at l-lope Church, others at the Odd
Fellows' Temple for the Morning Star Lodge of the Rebeccas, at the Springfield
VVoman's Club for the D. A. R., and another under the auspices of the Springfield
College Club at Technical l-ligh School Auditorium, are among those given. The
outstanding event of the year was a trip during Spring Vacation when three concerts
were given in Boston and vicinity.
Because of its cultural and constructive purpose the Women's Glee Club is
enjoyed by many students who are interested along musical lines, The aim of the
organization is to bring pleasure to the students and also to raise to a new height
musical activities at American International College.

Sigma Alpha Phi, lnternational's grandparent of fraternities, is the outgrowth
of a desire and a necessity, intermingled in such a way that, together, they constitute
a sort of spontaneous combustion. When one recalls the founding of the fraternity,
one must bear in mind that, essentially, its core was a thing of the spirit.
Now this spirit first emanated from the minds of two members of the student
body in the spring of nineteen hundred and thirty-three. These men met together
for an evening of friendly comradery, but lol in the early morning hours, their con-
versation turned to a white-heat discussion of the then intellectual and social
aridity of the campus, and the desirability for some sort of oasis which, it appeared,
might be guite possible to create. Upon the parting of these two, on that historic
occasion, the exoct time of which must forever remain os indefinite os the thoughts
that marked the beginning of the fraternity, they secretly vowed a solemn vow.
ln the month of May, nineteen hundred and thirty-three, the fraternity burst
forth in full bloom with thirteen members, three foculty associates, and one honorory
member. The spirit had finally manifested itself into o more tangible phenomenon-f
Sigma Alpha Phi.
Being of the opinion thot fellowship with kindred minds is a spur and, in itself, ci
delight, it is now the desire of Sigma Alpha Phi to unite any scholastic attempts with
a sane degree of sociability in thus striving to goin some small degree of wisdom.
Thus, under the chaste protectorship of the fairest on the coast, "The Faithful
Wife at Home," Sigmo Alpha Phi has won a berth of high esteem on the campus
of American International College.

The Zeta Chi fraternity, founded in March, l934, with a total membership of
eight, has rapidly grown to the present membership of seventeen active or student
members, five alumni, and one associate member. One of the best loved members of
the fraternity, Warren S, Rowland, Jr., class of '34, who died as the result of an
automobile accident, is commemorated by the plaque in Lee l-lall chapel, placed
there in loving tribute by his fraternity brothers.
While the purpose of the organization is predominantly social, the fraternity
does donate baskets of food to needy families at various times, including the holiday
seasons. Fraternity teams are sponsored in all intramural sports, and eleven out of
the seventeen members have qualified for varsity letters.
One of the most notable achievements of the organization was the publication
of the mimeographed school paper, "The Yellow Jacket," which was the forerunner
of the present school newspaper. The fraternity took charge of the important extra-
curricular activity at a time when no representative school group was able to do so.
When, in l935, the paper was turned over to the new staff, there was a firm founda-
tion laid by the fraternity on which to build the present "Yellow Jacket."

The Alpha Sigma Delta Fraternity had its origin at the American International
College in May, I934, under the name of the Italian Club, In March, l935, the
name of the organization was changed to the Alpha Sigma Delta Fraternity, and was
made up exclusively of men at the college who were of Italian extraction. In June,
l935, the Executive Committee granted the fraternity a charter under its new name.
The purpose and ideals upon which the fraternity was founded are the devotion
of its members to each other through the common appreciation and understanding
of the rich field of art, science, and literature Italy has offered to the world,

The De Molay Eraternity was established at the American International College
May ll, l935, by a group of De Molay men who were interested in organizing a
fraternity to continue their De Molay friendships and to carry on some of the De
Molay activities This group was successful in drawing up a charter and in obtaining
Professor Wiel as a faculty advisor,
The members of the fraternity are all members of the Order of De Molay and
the purpose of the organization is to continue in college life De lvlolay friendships
and ideals and to instill in the members a finer college spirit.
This year the rather new De Molay Fraternity has been active within their group
ond on the campus so that it has attracted other De Molay men. The fraternity is
now well supported by eighteen men and it gives promise of a real addition to college
life, and to the life of its members.

The Kappa Sigma Sorority was founded at the American International College
in the spring of l933. The purpose of the sorority is to discuss current cultural topics.
With this aim in view, Kappa Sigma sponsors one meeting for members only and one
for the benefit of the student body each month. Aside from the cultural aspect of its
life, the sorority presents a minimum scholarship of twenty-five dollars to some
worthy and needy student.
This year's program included such interesting lectures as "Cathedrals of Eng-
land," given by Mr. David Greenaway, Senior, and an informative lecture at Chapel
Assembly on "Protecting the Consumer," presented by Mrs. Ai B. Morrill, The pro-
gram for the remaining year will include a lecture on "Scotland" by Mr. Charles
Turnbull and a lecture on "The Summer Missionary" by Reverend Otto Janus.
The membership of Kappa Sigma is limited to twenty-five active members, not
including its faculty members, acting and honorary, who are at present Miss Fosgate,
Miss Benson, Miss Miller, and Miss Durgin, This year the sorority has twenty-one

I-lampered by the loss of many veterans, the season of i935 found Coach Peter-
son patiently moulding a team of unknown calibre, to face the difficult schedule
which had been prepared. In its first encounter against Northeastern, one of the
finest elevens in New England, the team showed plenty of power and drive. Many
threats were made to score, but the lnternats could not stand the strain of North-
eastern's constant substitutions.
The following week the team journeyed to Lowell where they met defeat at the
hands of the Lowell Textile team by a score of 20-7. A pass from Lamoraux to
Nascimbeni was responsible for our only touchdown. Sibley gained the extra points
With the team in a crippled condition, Coach Peterson was forced to travel to
Norwich to oppose the local Cadets. The game was an exciting one, but the lnternats
were again on the losing end, the final score being 6-O.
Old man iinx trailed the lnternats to New Jersey. Four touchdowns scored
against Upsala were nullified because of frequent penalties, The Yellow Jacket
Gridsters put on the best exhibition of the year but were forced to take the short
end of a i9-O score.
George Trench and Alvin Carocari were elected honorary co-captains at the
close of the seasons
Graduation will claim Sibley and Co-Captain Trench.

A.l.C.'s second year in intercollegiate soccer produced the best record ot any
competitive sport. Four victories and three defeats were chalked up in the playing
of a strenuous schedule.
A good claim on the New England small college championship could be made in
view ot the tact that all ot the lnternats' wins were at the expense ot Massachusetts
teams. Clark, Massachusetts State, Fitchburg Teachers' and Bridgewater Teachers'
Colleges were the victims ot the Yellow Jackets, all ot the games being decided by
the margin of one goal. The three teams to hold verdicts over the AAIAC. boaters were
Syracuse, Ithaca, and Cortland State Teachers' College, all ot these being New
York State teams, The Ithaca and Cortland losses were received on a New York
State trip during which our squad found the combination ot high water and injuries

leaving at graduation, Abram Lyttle, tullback, will lead the team next season,

The Yellow Jackets opened their i935-1936 season with a trip north. Out of two
games played they broke even, losing the first to St. Michaels by a score of 3l-29,
and winning the second from a stubborn Norwich combine by a score of 28-26.
On the Saturday of the same week, the lnternats met with defeat to the tune
of 40-27 at the hands of the highly touted Northeastern five,
The Christmas vacation did not prove beneficial to the lnternats for they found
themselves at the short end of a long score against Lowell Textile, Defeats were also
received at the hands of the United States Coast Guards, Assumption, and Arnold.
A The highlight of a rather drab season was the comeback victory scored over the
powerful Clark five.
The St. Michaels game closed the career of Captain Boyajy, Kopp, and Sibley,
who will graduate in June.

With the advent of the i935 baseball season, the tons saw the lnternat nine
playing a full collegiate schedule. The season opened against Northeastern at Bos-
ton. The boys immediately collected their hits together, and drove across the plate
tive runs to Northeastern's three. The lnternats held this lead up until the unlucky
seventh when errors cost them tour runs and the ball game. The home season was
impressively opened with an eleven to eight victory over Arnold. In the third game
against Clark University A.l.C. gathered fourteen hits and six runs against Clark's
two runs and returned home, victorious once again, The Lowell Textile ball tossers
were next on the schedule, but due to the excellent pitching of their freshman star,
the lnternats had to accept their second defeat of the season. ln the two final
games against the US, Coast Guards and Tufts, A.l.C. broke even, winning from the
Coast Guards and losing to Tufts.
Graduation has claimed two members ot the squad, Captain Slate and Richard

The first season of intercollegiate tennis at A.lC. found our net-men winning
one match while dropping tour. After matches had been lost to Tufts, Assumption,
Holy Cross, and Fitchburg State Teachers' College the team redeemed itself some-
what by downing Connecticut State in the season's final test. The lack ot suitable
practice courts early in the season handicapped the squad to a great extent.
Prospects for this season are fair despite the loss ot l-larry and l-lerman Ehrlich,
Al Small, and Lee Sanella. A larger squad this season gives promise of more competi-
tion tor tirst team positions with a corresponding improvement in the caliber ot play.

With one of the best basketball teams ever to be at the college, the I9354936
season of the vvomen's varsity basketball team opened with a sensational game
against Posse Nissen School of Physical Education. Not until the final whistle could
the victor be known, the game being a very fast and exciting one, Unfortunately the
final score found our team short by one point.
Not discouraged with defeat in their first encounter, the AIC. girls met the
Connecticut State tossers with much vim and vigor. The game turned out to be a
good one and offered plenty of excitement for the players as well as the spectators.
The excellent playing of Connecticut State's "ten foot" forward kept her team on
top to the tune of 40-37.
Mr, Jinx kept following the team, particularly in its third game against Rhode
Island State's combine. Shot after shot failed at the opportune time The results
found our team subdued to the count of 23-IT,
ln the closing games of the season against Connecticut and Rhode Island State,
the girls broke even, losing the first and winning the second by the score of 25-22.
Graduation will claim Dorothy Hastings, Captain, Ellen Seager, and Persis Start.

Riding initiated its way into the college with much enthusiasm and pleasure.
After several canters under expert supervision, our girls soon became etticient and
capable harsevvornen. During the past season they have enjoyed riding, in and about
various places ot interest in Springfield.
The ultimate purpose ot the club is to create and develop good horsemanship,
and to partake at the numerous thrills and exciting adventures ot the sport. The
members hope in the near future to be able to take a short trip on horseback.

The women's varsity tennis team, spurred on by the splendid coaching of Miss
Edna Calkins, completed its second successful year, winning three of its four matches.
The girls went down to defeat at the hands of Connecticut State at Storrs but
retaliated by winning a hard-fought match from them at Springfield, and were twice
victorious in their matches with Morse College at Hartford and Springfield.
ln View of the fact that i934-i935 was only the second season in girls' varsity
tennis, it is felt that with the good showing and growing interest in this field the
future holds great promise. With several veterans from the l93S team and with
promising new material it is hoped that A,l.C, may boast an even finer team in I936.
