Student Faculty Council
The Student Faculty Council supervises all extra-curricular activities including the stu-
dent publications, with the exception of athletics. lt further has in charge the proctoring of
mid-year and final examinations. lt is also a function of this organization to act as a mediat-
ing body for the presentation and discussion of any problems arising between the student
body and the administration.
Each year the Student-Faculty Council levies a Student Association Fee. The money
derived from this source is used to defray the expenses of the Student-Faculty Council, en-
titles the student to a copy of the Student Handbook, the year book, the college newspaper
and participation in campus organizations the programs of which are expanded by means
of appropriations from the Council funds, as also are athletic programs.
An added project during the war period is the maintaining of active contact with our
men in the service through Dr. McGown's office. Copies of the Yellow lacket as well as
weekly letters are sent to every former A.l.C. student and grateful responses are received.

After a one year lapse, A.l.C. resumed Varsity basketball bringing back
much of the pre-war college life. Basketball got away to an impressive start,
when Edward l-lickox was engaged to coach the team. Considered one of
the seven best coaches in the country, he is also President of the Coaches
Association of America and Vice-President of the Basketball Buler Committee.
Coach Hickox optimistically started training, with a totally inexperienced
team, with the exception of Norman Cournoyer, who is a returned veteran, and
who had played ball at Chicopee High. A.l.C. dropped its first three games:
to New Britain Teachers College, 49 to 377 Amherst College, 56 to 365 and
Worcester P.l. Vl2 team, 87 to 28.
But there was still a light shining somewhere, mostly in the spirit of
the team. Grueling hours of training and practice at the Buckingham Gym:
passing, foul shots, trick plays, and all the rest that ultimately means a first
rate team. They had to give up a lot too. No Winter Carnival Tea Dance
for them, and plenty of plugging when they would much rather be doing
something else. No late hours either, CAm l kidding?l And then came another
miracle-one of A.l.C.'s former stars came back-Gordie Allen, straight
from the Navy. And a newcomer, Wes Kosiorek, another good man from
Chicopee. tChicopee again? Imagine that.l
And then did we shine! We took over New Britain again, and this time
the score was a little different f44 to 43. Some thrills and some hook shots
by Cournoyer! Boy! When that guy gets uncorked. Except for the freezing
temperature of the Springfield College gym, the dance was a good celebra-
tion afterwards. tln fact, every game was celebrated in one way or another,
win or lose.l
But then, due to some trick of fate, we lost a few games. To be exact
we lost the next five. Two to B.U. one to Northwestern University and one
to Middlebury. Last but not least was the hair-raiser, adam's apple-choker,
that we lost to St. Michael's, 53 to 5l. lt resembled the first one we lost to
B.U. and they were certainly so beautifully played, that we can say proudly,
"We almost didn't lose those games." The U.S. Naval Convalescent Hospital
and Lowell Textile and Amherst College were on our "We Love You, But
We Want To Beat You" list also.
"Husky Hank," as the Worcester Bugle so neatly put it, did a lot of
scoring, Gordie Allen and Turner following closely. The guy l think we all
admire is Coach Hickox, who is used to winning the games he coaches.
We admit we lost a few in our l944-l945 season, and it takes a good man to
take it like the Coach did. He has prophecied that the fall of '45 will see
the boys in Madison Square Garden. He probably feels much the same way
that the whole gang of us feel, fthe ones of us that are bright enough to be
interestedl, that it's first the spirit, then practise, and finally experience that
makes champs, and if l do say so, l think they're darn good. CAs Maizie
would say, "Cute too."l

First semester ot swimming this year was held at the Boys' Clulo pool,
and during the second semester the girls went over to the Trinity Church
pool. The water seemed to have a bad habit of being either too warm or
too cold, but did it bother our hard females? No sir! Perhaps we can't all
swim like mermaids, but at any rate we had tun.

COACH, Esther D. Frary
"Up . . . Down, Up . . . DoWn" was the general movement ot our many
equestriennes who braved the art of trying to stay on a horse. There were
no serious casualties on our part, but those poor tour-legged creatures took
an awful beating. We must admit, though, we looked like a bunch of
hooligans crawling around campus the day after our weekly jaunt . . . but
it was Well Worth the ordeal.
COACH, Esther D. Frary
The girls have been out again this year making attempts to hit the target.
Many are the arrows that have been painfully removed from the dust or rnud
taccording to the weather? of the football field.
Last fall they had a bit of difficulty-the football boys kept dashing
across the line of fire. However, by continually moving the target the girls
were able to avoid a casualty to the limited number of boys.

"lt is difficult to ascertain which false ideas are the most preposterous: those common
among Latin Americans with respect to United States citizens and their way of life, or those
common among United States citizens with respect to Latin Americans and their way of
life," says Luis Quintanilla in his recent best seller, A Latin American Speaks. We have
had ample opportunity to testify to the truth of this statement right here on our campus
during the past four years. ln addition, we have discovered that this same ignorance of
mutual cultures exists between ourselves and the peoples of Mediterranean and near Eastern
As freshmen we viewed with provincial suspicion and adolescent curiosity the small
group of students who had traveled from Turkey, Greece, and Latin America to learn
English under Mrs. Riddles expert guidance. They proved to be an able and likeable group
worthy of the respect and sincere admiration they evoked amongst their American con-
temporaries. Not only did they learn our language with amazing ease and speed, but
skillfully and with a tact unpracticed by their blunter hosts, they quietly wove themselves
into our collegiate background-no longer strangers, but friends. The class of 1945 was
thus baptized in the religion of internationalism through the kindness and co-operation
exemplified by this tiny band of "missionaries".
Our junior year found us with a slightly broadened foreign policy, but still woefully
unprepared to cope with the large number of good neighbors who had settled on our door-
step during the summer. Those of us who reside in the dorm have perhaps the most vivid
recollections of the confusion that reigned in the early days of association with our fellow
Americans from "South of the Border." All the false ideas that Mr. Quintanilla speaks of
reared their ugly heads. Their natural gaiety, the sonorous tones of their language, their
charming manner and the haunting melodies they sang under our windows many evenings,
convinced us that all Latins were, indeed-dashing students of three R's-rumba, revo-
We, in turn, lived up to their prejudices. The girls in their slacks with their breezy
manner, the boys with their rough horse play in the "presence of ladies", the "dutch treats",
the lack of formality, the pace at which we moved-all tended to prove their sources of
information concerning North Americans had been accurate. We were practical, unfeeling,
entirely lacking in culture and social graces and ee suffering from a superiority complex.
In a surprisingly short time we were laughingly comparing the first impressions and
common prejudices. A tribute to the ability of these Latins to "win friends and influence
people". For not only did they courteously adopt our customs during their short stay, but
they charmingly sold many of their own as well. They proved conclusively that a mutual
exchange of ideas, the dispelling of prejudices through intelligent investigation of how the
other fellow really lives, and tolerance of each other's point of view pays rich dividends
in respect, understanding and friendship regardless of race, color, or creed. To you goes
the deepest gratitude of the Class of '45. To you we say: "Muchas gracias, amigo" -you
are indeed a gentleman and a scholar.
Our senior year! While we prepare to don the caps and gowns which will proclaim
us as "bachelors" in the Arts and Sciences, we are also striving for a similar degree in the
broader field of world fellowship. Our horizons have been broadened by the arrival of
a new group to our campus, the Iranian or Persian students. In addition there are Turkish,
Latin and Greek scholars in ever increasing numbers to try our international maturity and
true hospitality. The senoritas from South America have introduced a refreshing, feminine
note to the scene.
Of widely diverse cultures, these young people constitute the most remarkable group
with whom we have come in contact. They are unique in their spirit of whole-hearted co-
operation, their agility in surmounting language difficulties and the support they've lent to
campus activities. They are in reality one of us! We deeply appreciate the effort they are
making to "live in Rome as the Romans do". We realize that this is no simple task, but one
which calls for a compromise of ideology and habit alien to our own. We have often
wondered if we too could wear the shoe as gracefully.
We sincerely hope that by opening our remarkable facilities for the application of the
theoretical knowledge they have gleaned in their own countries that we may repay the
debt we owe them. They have shown us that the ideals
set forth in the Atlantic Charter are not mere impractical I
visions. Let us not forget in the crucial days to come that I
we have in four short years lived according to the princi-
ples of that document.
Let us point with pride to our Alma Mater as a mute
testament to the factfit can be done! It must be done!

The following fragments of correspondence were collected and compiled by Dr. l. M.
Porous, alias Mademoiselle Fast N. Furious, who has done so much to head off the corrup-
tion that might well have disintegrated our very souls but for her own absorbing person-
ality-a veritable sponge. Her philosophical hypothesis that "All pleasure is evilg only
Cxyet-ll evil can occupy space at a given time, so logically it's he who first comes is first
served," has, by its very nature, forced us into the state of intellectual purity with which we
face the woild. With typical philanthropy, the above-mentioned dedicates this, the greatest
of her biographies, to all her little Freudian angels-THE CLASS OF '45.
Dear Mom and Pop,
Cheezl l'm so excited! College life is certainly a joyful experience and so is A.l.C.
I've met lots of interestin' people. Everybody is so kind around here except for a class of
individuals that disguise themselves as sophomores. But really they are fiends who delight
in torturing us. We freshmen are no slouches somebody said and so a few of these second
year termites were put out of the way. Honest. The leaders of the gang were kidnapped
and taken to a hut in the Berkshires and kept alive on apples. And initiation night the girls
rebelled against such undignified treatment and we had the nicest tomato fight in the chapel.
l gotta read about Froid now. l'm awful lonesome so write and send me my allowance.
Oh, ma! You should see the handsome football heros. They're rather old and very
sophisticated-some are even 22. l'm going to find one that likes my type, and then l'm
going to ask him to the Freshman dance.
And there are professors here that talk to us in the most intriguing fashion. tYou won't
have to send me That Book after all.l Especially one, that is the integrated type. l just don't
see how he stands with his knees and head on the same level horizontal-like when he
lectures. Then there is a man with some hair and glasses that smiles a lot, which doesn't
necessarily say anything for his good nature, I fear, for l hear he is a beast and chuckles
maliciously when he flunks people in Statistics.
And then there is our President who reminds me of Monty Wooley around the chin,
but he is very kind and his eyes twinkle and in some respects he reminds me of Mayor
LaGuardia tYou know-he is the Mayor of New York City which is located somewhere East
of here I learned in Eccie Geogj And don't worry, Foppa and Momma, l am not neglect-
ing my religious activities. I go to chapel twice a week and take Bible with Dr. Grim-
shaw who has a ripe sense of humor ready to be husked.
Your loving darter,
. . . Gee Mom, I stayed out 'till three o'clock last night at the Winter Carnival dance,
but don't worry l'll double up on my vitamin pills. Be home next week . . . The day war
was declared, l broke my tooth. Do you think that's a bad sign?
. . . Tell Iunior' that if he comes to see me he can see some real commandos in the com-
pulsory p.t. around here. They are wonderful. I bet their muscles are even bigger than the
ones at Springfield College. And if they're not, it's because they don't have to use them to
think with. Somebody said the guys over there are wolves dressed up as Supermen. So
they really aren't human beings at all . . . am awfully busy, must go over the OKE.
Dear Momma and Pappa,
I have become acquainted with three places that play an important place in extra cur-
ricular life here. The OK. is something like a restaurant with a box in it that eats nickles
and then burps music. And, Poppa and Momma, I saw some ladies smoking little, short,
white cigars. And Wright House is where people lounge in leather chairs and get educated
in poker games and talk about people in cow sessions. There is also a place for people
who feel badly and want to acquire charm and it costs lUc a lesson and it's fun too. We
are having a class meeting soon to decide about officers. lt really is kind of silly tho' since
there is an executive board around here called Zeta Chi that always has the last say. Give
Iunior' my love.
' Compiler's Note: lunior is her brother
. . . Dear Iunior, please send me your fishing boots or I won't be able to continue my
education. Better still, perhaps you'd better ask Poppa for his canoe and I could make some
extra cash rowing people to and from classes. Thank you, Iunior ....
Dear F. ci F.
We fellers got troubles. Here we come back to school in search of education and femi-
nine companionship, and what do we find? Education. Those Gables from south of the
border are stealin' our stuff. They're not satisfied with the rest of our chickens, they want
the necks too. Of course we want to be neighborly and all that, but Cheez! Do you think
we can afford to be? Think of our reputation. There won't be a wolf in the country that we'll
dare look straight in the face and howl at.
WE NEED HELP . . .
Masses and masses of Freshmen! If it wasn't for being so true to you, I could go for
some of these blue-eyed athletes in their sharp, Norwegian ski sweaters, and gasless
vehicles. Lots more men than last year. Some of 'em are almost heroes, being veterans
and so forth. Maybe l'll ask Poppa for a gas stamp, and put my halo in a rummage sale
-besides it's getting a little rusty.
With graduation coming up, l'm getting a little panicky and my goose-bumps emerge
frequently, wondering whether or not l've put enough into this four-year stretch. lSounds
like a new kind of girdle.l
There's an election coming up, and some new guy who calls himself Hank Wia-some-
thing, has started talking up Dewey. H. W. feels it is time for a new deal, but I intend to do
my best by Roosevelt in view of his Dutch descent, for l have always admired Peter the dike-
holder. But since everybody who is esthetic does it, I shall gasp worshipfully when the holy
name of Thomas is mentioned and tell people how I admire his foreign policy.

Dear Sunday Union:
It was vurry, vurry nice of you to report the formation of the A.l.C. 4-F Club. We wish
to express our gratitude.

Big news! A goil for president of our unprecedented class, Annie O'Shaw. Phyl Wil-
lis, "Pee Wee" Roy, "Dubbie" Williams, Carolyn Cobb, "Bev" Angers, and Mary G-iorgi
are the other officers elect. No doubt you will find it necessary to comment on "the wisdom
of such feminine dominance". Even if we didn't trust ourselves completely, necessity doesn't
invent men. We've only got five who never come to class meetings. They don't dare.
What?? More money?'? What did you do with the quarter we sent you last week?
Flat as a pancake,
Mom and Pop.
Well, churn, your Tootsie am about to graduate if all goes well. With the old sheep
skin practically in my hand, I feel free to tell you that I've become very attached to old
A.l.C. and in my innocence dread going out into the big bad world.
My sorority, Burpa Bita Coke gave us a farewell banquet and our tears flowed like wine.
MY CGD and gown lOOk Very SIl'1OOlh- I always said hoop skirts hide a multitude of
sins. If you don't hear from me for awhile, it'll be 'cause l'm busy hunting up a job. At
last I'll be able to support you in the manner to which you are accustomed.
Your girl friend,
And so, Dear Readers, unconscious as we may seem, we are conscious of the great
potentialities that lie before each and every one of us as blessed phenomena of wisdom,
culture, corpuscles and BEQR. We are to be thrust from the sheltered environment of the
warm wing of our Alma Mater into a world ready to exploit us the minute we shut our eyes
to its evil. But we must look it in the face, that it may not stab us in the back. There IS
good in the world. It might be a generous gesture on our part to leave it there.
And always remember: "Accept the rain with the sunshine, for every flower has its
With this tear-jerking thought in mind we will leave you-each to his own de-VICES.
