Born September 15, 1935, the class of 1939 showed for the most part. the normal reflexes of collegiate babes and proceeded to embark upon a career of obtaining the superior behavior patterns peculiar to the so-called educated group. Like new-born children, their activities could be classed as "random movements" with little or no apparent objective. At two years of age there is a decided period of "trial and error" and it is in this stage that we find our thirty-niners indicating their varying potentialities and aptitudes. At three years of age the child becomes an extreme individualist, interested in group activity, only in so far as it satisfies his own particular desires. Thus this group, like all Iunior classes, is a mixture of superior and average students, plus a few stragglers tstill in the trial and error stagel, each an individual and, unfortunately, maintaining this individuality at the expense of cooperative activity. The four year old for the first time becomes interested in cooperative activity. With their fourth birthday on the horizon this group must take ac- count of stock, not only of their own sense of values and particular desires, but of their place in relation to the group and society in general. They must drop the three-year-old characteristics of extreme individualism and become cooperative members of a larger unit. With this accomplished we could look forward to a successfully or- ganized Senior class, who, on their fifth birthday, would be prepared 'to face life's responsibilities.

T IS difficult to appraise the sophomore class unless we remember that being a sophomore is a kind of disease to begin with. For this reason it cannot be proved at the present time that our Class of 1940 is either more or less abnormal than sophomores are naturally expected to be. Most of the typical symptoms are present, which fact is on the whole favorable to recovery in the course of time. The only way to get over being a sopho- more is to become something else-it they let you. This will probably hap- pen to the majority, although here and there something will give during the process, even if it is only the long-suffering men's dormitory. The re- cent action of the Student-Faculty Council in establishing a closed season on the hunting of the species is likely in the end to prove a forward step. The sophomores include all the standard varieties, and a few examples that cannot be classified by any of the scientific methods now in use by investigators of the problem., We have still waters that run deep, mouths supported by an endless supply of noise, right wing and left wing cham- pions, in fact, everything except samples of those heights of superiority to which sophomores never rise while remaining sophomores. If they were all laid end to end where steam-rollers were smoothing out a stretch of road, the rest of the college would undoubtedly willingly pay for decent burials. Ugly duckling into swan: caterpillar into butterfly, We all have to have growing pains, so while there's life there's hope. .14 Page f-55 A. 1. C. THE TAPER 1938 TLQ Cl Allen, Arthur G.

THE TAPER 1938 FRESHMEN 9 HAVE been asked to write my impression of the Class of 1941 at A. I. C. What can I say about it, for or against, good or bad, which will truly depict them in the eyes of those who read this article? Naturally. I have impressions-in fact, so many of them that it is difficult for me to organize them into any comprehensible form. Most of my impressions are of individual members of the Class rather than of the Class as a Whole, but, perhaps by collecting, analyzing, and tabulating in my mind the per- sonal or individual impressions, I can emerge with a generalization which will be, to some extent, characteristic of the class as a Whole. The Class of 1941 is not only the largest class which has ever enrolled at A. I. C., but it is also the class which is most representative of Ameri- can life as we find it in our daily dealings and travels. There are repre- sentatives of nearly every race, religion, and color. There are students, pluggers, playboys, what-have-you, and even a moron or two. There are those interested in business, those interested in the arts, and those who have brains enough to know that, for their own good, they must be in- terested in both. There are those who are here because they want to be, those who are here because they have to be, those who shouldn't be here, and those who won't be here long. Some have to be forced to work, some to study, some to play. Some will never make the grade, some will just pass, and some will hit the "high spots" here, and after graduation will blaze a trail to unexceeded heights. Yes. in the Class of 1941, A. I. C. has "EVERYTHING" and that is just what A. I. C. wants: a real college needs "EVERYTHING", wants "EVERY- THING", and gets "EVERYTHING". We humble and often unappreciated members of the faculty attempt to give everyone who comes under our influence a knowledge of the field in which we are teaching, and in most cases we succeed to a varying degree. But, above all else that one should obtain from a course in col- lege is a knowledge of how to live happily and how to be tolerant. The success of the student in learning how to live happily depends about equally upon the faculty and the student: but tolerance, a rare gift, comes not so much from the classroom as from the open campus, the football field, and the social affairs-even a good "Bull Session" helps. If one gradu- ates from A. I. C. and has not in his mind a knowledge of how to live and how to be tolerant-how to love his fellowman, regardless of race or color or creed-he has not only wasted his time in the classroom, but he has definitely failed to give the Class of 1941 a fair chance to help him. This Class has more, in my opinion, to offer to the students of A. 1. C. than any other class on campus. They're willing to share it, but don't expect them to carry it to you!

In March, 1935, the name of the organization was changed to that of the Alpha Sigma Delta Fraternity, and was made up exclusively of men who were of Italian extraction. In Iune, 1935, the Executive Committee granted the fraternity a charter under its new name. The purpose and ideals upon which the fraternity was founded are 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.

'- iM THE TAPER ml, 1938 CLASS HISTURY lj H ME-how fleeting is time-why it seems like only yesterday that we showed our bright and shining faces to a disgusted bunch of newly made sophomores who lost no time in venting their wrath on us-How we did take it-Ah yes-How we did take it! Remember the day We swung the Frosh election . . . Let's see now-if my memory stands me in good stead Fred Padley was elected president, wasn't he?-'N then there was Edith Bengston as Vice President, Dot Jensen was secretary and Ben Laudon was Keeper of the dough--oh yes, I mustn't forget Bob Barker who was elected to the post of member at large. It was about this time we needed to give our class treasurer something to do, so we ventured into our first money making enterprise-The Barn Dance at Somers, Connecticut---ably run by that gal from the wilds of Pine Point, Nellie Mihle. It takes Country folks to run country dances and we made our first buck. The honor jobs in the student council were given to Bob Drake, Bob Barker and Shirley Provost. 'Long about this time summer vacation set in and when we brought ourselves again to the doorstep of our Alma Mama, we were definitely lacking in numerous classmates who failed to show up, so we got started with our depleted ranks and moulded the executive board of the class. Wallie Krusell was now to occupy the seat of President, "Smiles" Mihle was the Vice President, Dot Iensen hung on to her secretarial job, Paul Hastings was given the key to the treasury and last but not least Bob Drake pushed Bob Barker out of the member at large position. Now me proud beauties, our time to roast the Frosh had come-two able committees under the leadership of Bob Barker and that fiery colleen Bert Skelly made out the torture assignment: and did we carry it out-Yeah Man! to the letter. You know-l'll bet that guy I socked is still eating buffet luncheons- But I'm away from my story. Fred Tourville was called upon to head the boys and gals in planning the Sophomore Hop at Breglio's. I'm not much on dates but it was around December 16, 1935-was it cold and did we apply the heat! The traditional Sophs amateur nite was better than any thus far and with the combine of Esther Frary, Skelly, Mihle and Temple on the commit- A. I. C. TI-IE TAPER 1938 tee you can easily see why. We finished the year in the usual manner, those easy going Spring days, ah that was the life. You know, when I came back from the summer vacation that year I began to think that I was going to be the only one to show up-A lot of the kids didn't come back but were we down hearted?-"NO" 'er I mean "no"-Cpardon me for shoutingl. Fred Bennett took over the reins of the class and everyone else was stuck-I mean was revoted into their old position except that fella in the member at large chair-Durphey muscled in there. One thing I'll always remember about that fall was the turkey raffle and the dance in D. A. R. on November 24. I can't remember who won the turkey, but I can't help but feel that I was double x-ed. I bought three tickets and got only a look at the bird. But the best thing about this whole affair was the decision of our class to give 152: of the proceeds of this raffle to the Toy for Ioy Fund. CI guess we aren't really such bad skates at tl'1CIl.l The Irish Free State captured the student council election and lane Hurley and Lafferty went to the Student Faculty Council. All this is but prattle as compared to our "Crystal Capers" formal at the Bridgway on Ianuary 14, 1937. None of us had much in the way of "iron men" after New Years but we did put it across didn't we-oh, I almost forgot the committee helped a little too-That ole Mihle, Leikin, Skelly, Pettine, Montagna combine could make a success of a tag day in Scotland. Our Pride and Ioy this year was the way that we put Iunior Week over-If I do say it myself and speaking for all of us-"We're just naturally good"-The chairmen for the week were Esther Frary, Open House: Prom Committee, Alvin Carocari: Mountain Day, Norm Temple-KAnd don't forget the ducking the Frosh gave us in the rope pulll. Tommy Townsend took charge of the Publicity committee for that week's events. I only wished that we had the space to write all the names of those who worked so hard to make that week something that we'd be proud of, but to all of those people we extend our humble thanks. AND NOW-that year which for most of us will see the end of so many pleasant relationships-. All the class officers except the president remained in office. Wallie Krusell came in again to rule the class for the last time. Page 89 Page 90 A. I. C. THE TAPER 1938 We received the Frosh in all due ceremony in D. A. B. on September 18. Again we stepped to the tore as the first class to run a Senior Prom. What a night that was-December 9, the Kimball, Fenton Brothers Band, soft lights, sweet music-that was a Prom-and to the fleet footed Johnny Mazzuto goes the crocheted bath tub for his work as committee chairman. When we started to elect ring, cap and gown, and graduation com- mittees, you could be sure that We were on the home stretch. Under the able guidance of such chairmen as Ierry Smith, Earl Sweatland and Esther Frary these committees went about getting ready to give our college days the coup de grace. And I think that the committee of Lafferty, Leikin, Hastings and Temple did a mighty fine job in running the Taper Dance in celebration of Dr. and Mrs. McGown's fortieth anniversary-that grand couple Whose lives have been devoted and dedicated to the youth of the world. Then our last dance as undergraduates, The Iunior Prom. Long will that night linger in our memories. We've come a long way together and no matter what happens We can always look back on our days when we, as the grandest bunch of reg'lar folks that ever graced our fair campus, were keeping alive the spirit of cooperation, fun and good fellowship. If only I could halt time in its flight- And bring back our yesterdays for only a night . . . A. 1. C.
