We feel that American International College will continue to expand and maintain her place among the leadingcolleges and universities of New England. Already much progress has taken place with promise of stillfurther expanf sion in the near future. The Alumni of American International College reflect the excellent training offered by her, as AIC graduates are well repref sented in our academic, professional, and business institutions. The 1948 Tape-r depicts in its theme colorful and rustic New England, an area so wealthy in educational and cultural traditions, the region in which American International College has been and will continue to be a dynamic force. The Editors wish to say "thanks" to all those who have conf tributed to make the 1948 Taper another "milestone" in the activities of the AIC student body.

XX V lin Hlrmnriam, Thirty years of successfully fulfilling the duties of adviser and teacher in one college is an achieve' ment worthy of recognition, and this was the record of Dr. L'Amoureux. During the diflicult years following the First World War, when it was the almost insurmountf able task of the Administration and Faculty to again secure a student body and formulate a suit' able curriculum, Dr. l..'Amoureux continued to maintain the vision of a larger and better A. I. C. - a college which could be of more service to a greater number of young people. He manifested the qualities of intelligence, patience, understanding, and dignity which were so much needed to further the' growth of the college and he will be remembered for his qualities by all with whom he came in contact. His example is worthy of our esteem and admiration. 2 45 3 4' ,Q Z- ,,g",iE , ,,.,,,, .., ,-.,- ff' ,.,.- X X.

ROBERT SKELLY Bob has bolstered the achievements of the '48 class with his very diligent and fine work as chairman on many of the dance committees. Bob resides at 16 Mapledell Street, which is the home of Sigma Alpha Phi. He has seen many years at AIC which were interrupted by his term of duty for our "uncle." MALVA HANSEN Malva is that extra-nice girl from D.A.R. who has taken the "doings" of our class in the secretaries' notebook. She has lived in D.A.R. for four years and has aided the powers that be in making the dormitory the pleasant place that it has been. She hails from Proctor, Vermont, and maintains her liking for the beauties of the outer world. S. GEORGE TRAGER The class of 1948 was most fortunate in acquiring the services of George as Treasurer of our class. George came to us from the junior College of Commerce, in New Haven, Connecticut. "Trigger" is majoring in Accounting and has had very adequate preparation for the oilice he held. The activities of our class have een well supported by George and he has aided social com- munities in promoting our affairs.

Some of our class members had been waiting for many years to attend this final class social, and all reports indicated that it was worth waiting for. The phenomenal luck of our class once more was shown, and the weather favored a beautiful winter evening for our Prom. We once again journeyed to the War Memorial in Holyoke and danced to the melodius strain of Al Strohman's Orchesf tra. There was about 150 couples at the prom who, without verbally committing themselves, let it be known that a very enjoyable evening was had. President William Gellermann, Dean Richard Ullery, Miss Henrietta Littlefield, and the heads of the departments were patrons and patronesses. The entire faculty were invited as guests of the Senior Class. This Prom was the last social function of a class which saw most of its members enter in peaceftime, leave school during the war, and return to AIC to complete their four years. Despite the interruption of the war and the disrupted social conf sequences that accompany such a calamf ity, the general gaiety and frolic dis' played during our last social function is indicative of the way in which our Seniors will meet the challenges of the society of which it will surely play a very irnporf tant part. -.--K' l n fb f ,im Q1 if ,Z if g.Z i I I' xg Q Ml 6 ' 1 5' , X lmi,,W, Wgfff' .L 'fp I -- Q . Class History In the year of 1944 in September, one of the greatest things ever to happen in the history of American Inter' national College occurred. There is no need for guessing as to the event inasmuch as nothing more important could have happened 'than the entrance into our college of the Class of 1948. Although we were a little bewildered at entering college, the greater majority of our class passed through the portals of AIC and made their bid for fame and fortune. One of the greetings extended us by the Sophomore Class was the Freshman Initiation. We passed with flying colors, and the Sophomore, sup' posedly the upper class, had to be content with taking only a slightly participating interest in the entire pro- cedure. We took an active part in the events of Mountain Day, held at the Mt. Tom reservation, and proved again, by taking all first places in the events, that we were not a class of chance but a class of fortune, destined to do things and to go places in our fourfyear stay at AIC. As to the scholastic part that we were supposed to play at school, the class of 1948 suffered its first set' back in the form of "finals" The baptism by fire in' dicated that there was a more important phase of college other than having fun and wasting our time. However, the lesson was welllearned and final exams in the future found us more prepared. At the turn of the semester, elections were held for officers and the group entrusted its leadership to Jim Doyle as their president, Jack Samson as their vicefpresif dent, Terry O'Malley took the notes, and Dotty Price handled our finances. Jack Hallas and Ronny Orzef chowski represented the 48'ers on the Student Council, with Jack Wynn as our member at large. The end of the Erst school year found us ready and willing to take a much more active part in school affairs, and after a well deserved and eamed rest during the summer, we embarked upon our Sophomore year. After having arrived in the fall of 1945, we noticed that many of our numbers were missing but after calling the roll, there were ample students of a capable caliber to ensure us of another promising year. As was usual, we assumed the manner of haughty Sophomores and conducted ourselves as such . . . on the surface at least. By this time, the professors began to know us and a more harmonious feeling prevailed. After making a fair ini' tial start in our new courses, we turned our thoughts to the social calendar and discovered that we were in charge of the annual HicfI'Iop. Excitement was in the air during the month of Octof ber in our Sophomore year. The annual HicfHop was to be held at Courtney's Barn in Somers, Connecticut. This setting became almost traditional for this Sopho' more affair and so much had been said about the "good times" at "Courtney's," that the sale of tickets had to be limited to one hundred and fifty couples. The date was Friday, October 24, and a. very en- joyable ride of thirteen miles was a prelude to a won' derful evening. A full moon shone above, and the weather was ideal for a dance in the country. Music was provided bythe Old Saw Mill Gang, who specializes in barn dances. The group that attended were very sur' prised that such a good time could be had, even if the dress of the day was not formal. Refreshments in the true style of the country were served and were quickly devoured by the hungry crowd. At midnight, a tired but happily contented group of Sophomores left Courtney's Barn and proceeded to their various destinations. In the second semester of this year, we found more and more familiar faces as the boys began to return home from the various branches of the service. The great num- ber that returned to school indicated that they had not lost the desire for an education and were hard at it. If, at times, it seemed that many of our classmates were trying unusually hard, it was because many of them were no longer single and had new responsibilities. During the semester, our class had many opportunities to watch one of the greatest basketball teams ever to trod the "'boards." This team was known as "The Cinderella Team" and lost three or four games in a twenty-four game schedule. In the spring of this year, all evidence pointed to a bigger enrollment in the fall, and it was apparent that AIC was feeling its growing pains and intended to do something about it. Once again the summer rolled into sight, and there did not seem to be many dissenters toward taking another summer vacation. There seemed to be a new "spirit" prevalent with our Junior students this year as they tried to shake away the effects of the summer's rest and get into the books once again. Of course, there was a reason! We were Juniors! There were even more new students than we had anticipated, and the enrollment reached a record high. Many more veterans returned to our ranks fthat word hurtsj, and a big year was in store. It was a year that found many of the former G.I.'s having a diilicult time in settling down to studies. It must be realized that many of these boys had not seen each other in many years, and there was much to tell. It took a whole semester to tell these storiesg and on or oif the campus, a new lan' guage came into being. Even the girls were speaking of "gear," "barracks," "liberty," "furlough," "gismo's,"' "takeoff," "topfdeck," etc. In the classrooom, there was a difference. The profesf sors were lecturing to a group that had seen much more of life than it was possible to imagine, and their lectures had more meaning to this group. These students were more willing to learn, and their grades proved it. There IENROLLMQITH ' V, fx .

It should also be realized that the majority of students were not of the tennfage group and had many new responf sibilities. In order to meet these responsibilities, many stu' dents had to work, and time for social activities was held to a minimum. However, in the second semester, a bet' ter adjustment seemed to have been made, and the schedf ule did work out more smoothly. To prove that we had not lost our desire for social activities, a large turnout was on hand for the annual Junior Prom in the spring. There always is something special about the spring, and there was every reason for the spring of '47, It was at that time when the Juniors of our college were prepare ing for the annual Junior Prom. Evening gowns and tuxedos were the dress of the day as the guys and gals prepared themselves for the last social function of the year. Al Gentile's very fine orchestra provided the music, and the War Memorial in Holyoke was the setting. It was that type of an evening that everyone hopes for and seldom realizes. The lads looked quite well groomed in formal attire, and the laxes, adorned with all types of spring flowers, never looked lovelier in their beautiful gowns. The highlight of the evening came when Dr. William Gellermann placed the crown of flowers on the very pretty person of our queen, Bridget. The president of our class, Jim Doyle, presented a loving cup to Bridget, on which was inscribed her name, title, and year of the Prom. The other candidates received bouquets of flowers and formed an aisle through which our queen proceeded to receive the congratulations of one and all. , sv Pvc 5 sql- wg ' r .' I' ff .

Following the Prom, the CAFF sponsored a Campus Carnival, which was participated in by all of the clubs and various organizations on campus. There were many types of booths and amusements during the threefday festival, which was followed by a Block Dance on Amaron Street. The spirit displayed during the last day of the affair carried itself into the evening, although the Block Dance was held in the rain, the large crowd that attended proved that the student body was in sup' port of this very worthwhile cause, which was to send packages abroad for the needy. Our return in the Fall of '47 was the most important return thus far, because now we were Seniors! A few of our numbers were missing, but they later did appear. Upon questioning, we found that there was no reason for their delay except that, being Seniors, we had a right to be late. Oh, well . . . it's nice to be a Senior. It was during this year that the new Student Associaf tion began to operate more effectively and eiciently. It had its birth the year before, and all evidence pointed to the success of our new student government. This organif zation planned the social calendar for the new year, and it was easy to understand that our activities would be carried out in a new and much smoother manner than in the past. We learned from Dr. Gellermann, our President, that AIC was planning to build a new library in the spring. It was good news for all concerned. We certainly are in need of such an addition for more reasons than one. In this way, AIC can gain national recognition as a college and take its rightful place . . . where we think she cer- tainly belongs. The building is to be erected between DAR and Lee Hall on Amaron Street. It was in this year that we also saw former AIC graduates being appointed to positions in the Athletic Departments. George Wood was appointed Head Foot' ball Coach, and Henry Butova was appointed Athletic Director, Backfield Coach in Football, and Baseball Coach. Messrs. Wood and Butova enjoyed a very sucf cessful season as the mentors for the Aces, having won seven games, tying one, and losing a single. The highlight of the year was, of course, the Senior Prom, the last formal dance of the class. It was well at' tended, and everyone agreed that it was successful both financially as well as socially. After the Christmas vacation, we again returned to our snowy grounds and joyously, yet regretfully, looked forward to the final stretch . . . toward June. Upon the eve of our graduation., we feel that we have been a most unusual class. Many of our graduatesetofbe began college in their teens, and after completing one or two years, went off to war, returned, and are now ready to graduate. We will be 'better prepared for our places in the outer world in that we have seen much of life and appreciate what is in store for us. We do regret leaving AIC in one sense. We have seen here many of the best years of our lives and have greatly enjoyed meeting and knowing so very many fine men and women. We now go forth and leave the doors of AIC . . . not closed, because many of us will return during our lives and look in again to realize what a wonderful place it has been. We are taking with us, not only a degree or a major in a specific subject, but the memories of many happy years. And so into the future goes the Class of 1948 . . . not to forget . . . and not to be forgotten . . . we hope . . . but to apply what we have learned in and out of the class- room. We go forth with a hope . . . the hope that what we have learned we may bring to the world and make it a better and happier place for those who follow .... Not good-bye . . . but soflong for a while. if lli?sIllIlGhv A Ut IU lg ln - l I if 'W l 'ill ..... Lf 'M , g xl? ullllllll 'uw -as-A g I. j ,. ,.. A X Fl? Mila! j 'NA lilly' I li X A WA?

F acuity Advisor The junior Class was one of the most ambitious and active classes on campus during the past year. .In addif tion to running its own social activities and affairs it supported those that were sponsored by other organiza- tions and classes. The FortyfNiners tried something new this year as they sponsored a dance at the Ludlow Country Club at the outset of the winter season. The undertaking proved to be well worth the time and energy put into it. The climax of the Social Calendar for the Juniors is the annual Junior Week. This is highlighted by the Prom and one of the features of this formal dance is the crowning of the Junior Queen. In intrafmural competition the class contributed girls' and boys' basketball teams. The class was well repre- sented on the bowling alleys, too. Student association representatives during the year were: MERWIN TOBER ROBERT WRIGHT PEG MACDONALD -,, Class of 1950 EUGENE GOLASH .... ...................... P 'resident JOHN GINO ............ ....

S ecretavy The Class of 1950 has tried to foster school spirit among its own members, as well as among the student body in general. The Sophs played a big part in the Mountain Day activities. The members who were in charge of the various committees did an eicient job, and it was through their leadership and cooperation that the day proved such a success. In addition to this, the boys' Tug of War team scored a rousing victory over their oppo' nents, the Freshmen. Of course, the big event of the year for the Class as a whole as far as the social calendar was concerned, was the annual Hic-Hop. Under the capable leadership of its oiicers and committeemen the Class again proved its ability to successfully run a social function. ' From the athletic standpoint, the Class was well ref presented in the intrafmural contests which included both girls' and boys' teams in basketball and bowling. The Soph girls took an active part in the swimming activities, too. The following were the Student Association represen- tatives during the past year: GLENDORA FOLSOM ROBERT KNIGHT WILLIAM O,CONNOR JOSEPH A. RENO ALFRED J.

The yearlings can be proud of the name that they have made for themselves during '4-7948, and have left an enviable record for future Freshmen to aim at. This year saw the return of Freshman athletics, and the FiftyfOners had a successful season, both in football and in basketball. In the Mountain Day competition, the class fared well. In this traditional activity, the Freshmen aren't supposed to be outstanding, or are they? To keep the members of the class informed as to what is going on around school, as well as among their own classmates, the Frosh have sponsored a newspaper, "5 l." This is an outstanding accomplishment on the part of the class, and those in charge of the publication deserve many plaudits. The big social event of the class this year was the St. Patrick's Day Dance held at the Hotel Charles. The affair was well attended by upperclassmen as well as Frosh and was a success both socially and Hnancially. Those representing the class in the Student Associaf tion this year were: Euo C.

These activities include varied types of interest, both social and cultural, many of which emphasize the problems and challenges of the world at large, thus offering a very real preparation for community life beyond the campus. The handbook further explains the offerings of extrafcurricular activities. The Student Activities Office acquaints it' self with the aims of the campus organiza' tions and is, therefore, able to more efficiently schedule meetings, gatherings, and make for a more harmonious running of events. It also circulates information through the daily bul' letin and aids any club or organization in promoting special meeting places, Wright House, is supervised by this office and it seems incredible that every campus organization is able to have its use without many conflicf tions: We owe this to our SAO. Perhaps the functions that this office makes possible are measured in material results to the majority of campus students. The greatest services performed are not measurable in this manner. Students are able to consult Miss Littlefield about many various problems with the knowledge that they will receive very friendly and helpful advice and counsel. We, the graduating class are aware of the help and advice she has given us and can never acclaim our appreciation via the route of mere wordy exclamations. We sincerely hope that the classes that follow realize what a wonderful help the Student Activities Office can be to them. We also feel that we can freely say that Miss Littlefield's Office is always open to any student and that she will always be willing to share her time and knowledge to all those . . . merely for asking. Again we wish to thank this office for the splendid cooperation that it has shown the Class of 1948, and wish it every success in the future. 3.

Beginning with the fall semester of 1947, the YELLOW JACKET be' came a Weekly newspaper, serving ap' proximately 15 O0 readers. A college newspaper should have no less than three main purposes: to present all news concerning AIC, to bring before the students any and all problems which concern them as students, and third, to stimulate interest in issues which concern personalities and problems outside the col' lge, but which have a bearing on the AIC student. When the YELLOW JACKET wrote and printed the news, prior to their policy of weekly editions, the deadlines which had to be met were not of so much importance as they are now. With a four-page paper coming out each Friday morning, the news for each issue must be collected in the space of three days. Consequently, the reporters are called upon to write more often. This year, the YELLOW JACKET has been blessed with a greatly increased budget, thus allowing it to print more issues for the increased influx Of students, and the double number of issues. Being a completely free press, run and administered by the students Of AIC, it has seen lit to recommend certain measf ures which would enhance the smooth running of campus affairs. When these measures were accepted and used, the YELLOW JACKET felt that their efforts to editorialize did not fall on deaf ears.

The 1948 Taper had as its objective in addition to the above slogan the following: "to give the student body of A.I.C. a bigger, better, and different yearbook." Throughout the year the staif has worked with this in mind. It is our hope that we have succeeded in carry' ing out both of these objectives. ...............Accountant . . . . . . .Advertising Manager Adele Foster Bob Meister Dick Gaudette Glen Gray AND TYPING . . . , ...............

' A,.,. ,,. 47 Orientation Day With approximately six hundred freshmen enter' ing AIC for the first time, the orientation prof gram was not held on the campus, but took place in Hope Church, Winchester Square. The affair was well attended. Dr. William Gellermann, Miss Henrietta Littlefield, and Edward Pepyne paved the verbal way for our new entrants. Ed Pepyne told the newcomers about the Stu' dent Association and the part it played in the college life of the student. He reminded them that the Association was for their benefit and that they should feel at liberty to take advantage O lt. Miss Littlefield, Director of Student Activities, spoke about the part that her office played in the extracurricular life at AIC. Dr. Gellermann informed the group on what the college stands for, how it stands at present, and what lies ahead for it in the future. With this enthusiastic indoctrination, the group left with the feeling that they had a real job to do, and also, that they were highly ref garded, and an important addition to AIC.

The annual "freefday" was a fore' cast of the future, in that there was an unusually large number of students participating. There were many softball games between classes, volleyfball games, and tugs of wars. The tug of war between'the classes of 1950 and 195 1 was the highlight performance of the day. It was literally, a battle of the "Su11ivan's," in that Bill Sullivan, class of 1950, and Bob Sullivan, class of 195 1, captained both of their teams. Bill Sullif van led his crew to victory, which incidentally meant a thorough "mudfbath" for the losers. The inscribed plaque was awarded the victors. Frank W. Soltys, general manager of the event and his very capable staff, are to be commended for their eiforts in making Mountain Day of 1947 opfe of the greatest successes since the origin of the a air. xg, W' 9 il H ' Bl x - 22 ki, ' .I Sophomore Hic-Hop "I Love Mountain Music" was truly the theme spotlights.

With a revised constitution, the council has succeeded in carrying out the prime purpose of the organization. The Chairman of the Council serves for a full semester, and is succeeded by a new chair who gains this office by a. drawing of chance. Each fraternity has a chairman during a twofyear period. By cooperating with each other and by showing this same cooperation to the ad' ministration, the InterfFraternity Coun- cil has been able to promote and carry out a better understanding among fraternities on campus. Activities of the Council have included smokers, pledging, intrafmural competif tion, and climaxing the social year in the spring with the Inter-Fraternity Ball. Inter-Sorority Council The purpose of the Council is to promote friendly relations between the four sororf ities and to supervise rushing and pledgf ing activities, The membership of the Council included three representatives from each sorority. Once a month meetings are held in Wright House and pertinent interfsoror- ity business and activities are discussed. This year the Council held a tea for the -freshmen and sponsored a fashion show and buifet for sorority members and ad' visors. The Council also sponsored a series of hygiene lectures.

The past year brought many of the charter members in contact with the members taken in during the war years, and the true purposes have been passed on to these new members, who will carry on in the future. Regular meetings are held in Wright House which were augmented by social events. The an' nual smoker was held in December and the Inducf tion Banquet was held in February, at which time the addition of new members brought to a total iiftyfseven active members.

Our founder's theme, "appreciation of science, art, and philosophy," is fostered and expressed through our annual Symposium and publication of the Sigma Alpha Phi Journal as well as other activities. The SAP's roster reached a number of sixtyfone men this year, the highest ever attained in its fra' ternal history, and is composed equally of business and liberal art students. House parties, dances, the pledgee smoker, the annual banquet, and the induction of members highlighted our social season. In addition, closed meetings are held weekly at the Chapter House. o o O o A, QQ x Sigma Lambda Kappa The purpose of this sorority is to foster culture and to sponsor a diverse social program for the benefit of its members.

The motto of Zeta Chi, "Zest for Living," is a quality looked for in the character of all men pledged to the fraternity. The men of Zeta Chi are characterized by their leadership, be it in the class' room, athletic field, social activities, or as the alumni have shown in the business, educational, and social worlds. During the year, a varied and enjoyable program of activities is furthered by the fraternity. 92 T' Winter Carnival The Carnival of the year 1948 at American International College, was the biggest and best that we have ever seen. A good deal of preparation and hard work, under the capable guidance of Merwin Tober and Karam Jacobs, made for a really beautiful Coronation Ball. With over two hundred couples in attendance, the Ball was under way at nine o'clock. The scene for the Ball was the spacious Springfield Auditorium. Contrary to the opinion that the Auditorium cannot be decorated well, the couples in attendance were pleasantly surprised. Upon entering the hall, great silver letters, spelling out AIC formed an arch to the dance floor. The sides of the hall and the columns were decorated with white trim' mings that completely encased the dance floor. In the center of the floor was a garclenffountain effect over which hung a glittering crystal ball. As this crystal ball revolved, the various colors, made by the glass, danced merrily throughout the auditorium. Upon the stage, a sleigh was placed, which was the throne for our Royal couple. Dancing was to the music of Ted Williams, and many comments indicated that the crowd was well pleased with his very fine arrangements. School and studies seemed to be far beyond the thoughts of the lads and lassies as they 'relaxed and gayly glided over the floor. Time fleeted by and the eleventh hour was soon at hand. Four stalwart lads of our school led the procession inf to the hall. They were splendidly attired in tux pants and white short jackets. They carried sabers held aloft and formed an arch for the king and queen candidates. "Little Prince Philip" followed the guard with the crowns for his highness and her majesty. In couples, the candidates walked toward the stage. The boys were very handsomely attired in tuxedos and the girls, never look' ing lovelier, were dressed in all types of beautiful gowns. As is the custom, the king and queen, were the last couple to appear and as the tension mounted, the couple finally came into sight. The crowd burst into spontaneous applause as they saw their choices walk toward the throne. Beautiful Peg Lombardi and handsome Bob Shumway were the choice. After they ascended the throne Dr. Gellermann performed the crowning honors and presented the king and queen with their many gifts. Flash bulbs snapped and excitement grew as we realized that our Winter Carnival was a wonderful affair. Many pictures were taken of the Royal Couple and the Court, and they appeared in the papers throughout New England. When the evening came to a close, we then realized that we had attended one of the nicest social functions of the year and left for our various destinations, with a feeling of satisfaction, joy, and happiness. Tea Dance The prelude to the Coronation Ball, in the form of a Tea Dance, was held at the Sheraton Hotel in Spring' field. A large turnout was on hand which was an indif cation that the Ball would also be wellfattended. Although there was plenty of snow under foot, the sky above favored us and the weather was extremely pleas' ant for the afternoon Tea Dance. The dance hall was wellffilled and as the couples danced one could feel the "spirit" of the Carnival in the air. Half-way through the dance, there was a ceref mony of short duration for the king and queen candif dates. Each candidate was announced and was presented with a miniature, jeweled king and queen pin, which they wore on the lapels and dresses. It appeared that the couples were really out to enjoy themselves and relax for a while from the regular routine of classes and studies. Following a very enjoyable afternoon the couples left the dance and after partaking in the evening nourish- ment were found at the Coliseum for the basketball game with William and Mary in the evening. 4 M5 25 ,. as FR 'i N? if 1 as Q ,Q S if -r : IW - K : -g X JSI W 1 Q W Q92 - W .9 29 ,f A9 xx 6" at . 5 'Qi af' is 3 Q , 4 3.

Advisors Arcus Biologicae was founded in 1936, as the Biology Club, and reorganized in 1941 as Arcus Biologicae. The purpose of the organization is to create an interest in biology, and to afford an opportunity for discussion of a biological nature beyond the limitations of the class' room. Once a month Arcus Biologicae has as their guest an outstanding speaker who can tell the group more about his particular iield of biology. These meetings are open to all students. Membership in the club is open to all students inf terested in the biological sciences. Arcus Biologicae is a member of the New England Biological Conference. Besides the regular speakers, business meetings, field trips, and social events held each year, Arcus Biologicae presents a formal tea for its members. For this spring event, a really outstanding biologist is guest speaker. As a special project, this winter of 1948, Arcus Bio' logicae made it ,possible for all students on campus to have a chest Xfray. Varsity Club The Varsity Club was organized for the purpose of bringing together the varsity lettermen of AIC under the fold of one organization. Its success lies in the central interests of the members and their wish to promote the feeling of fellowship and spirit among the athletes of the school. The Varsity Club was refactivated in January of 1947. With Alan Carey as its first president, and later succeeded by Henry jaszek, the Varsity Club increased considerably in membership. The members include many lettermen of prefwar sports and its roster is added to at the complef tion of each varsity season. At present the oilicers of the Varsity Club inf clude Larry Benjamin as president, Alan Carey, vicefpresidentg Frank W. Soltys, secretary, Stamos Zades, treasurer. The advisors are George Wood, head football coachg Henry Butova, athletic director, and Tom Boyajy, economics professor. Members of the Varsity Club are eligible to receive a black buttonfdown sweater, with an emblem attached. In December 1947, the club showed movies of the season's football games to the student body. In February, a dance was held under the auspices of the' Varsity Club at Wright House. Included in the plans was a gigantic Var' sity Club variety show to be held in the spring.

The work of the group this year fell into three categories, namely: interfcollegiate debate ing, sponsorship of the New England Junior Model Congress, and weekly radio debates. A threefday trip to the Vermont University Confer' , ence started a very successful season. This was followed , by many debates, both here at AIC and away on other 1 college campuses. A series of radio debates were held during the winter and spring months at radio station ' WMAS, here in Springfield. 1 The work of the Debate Council in sponsoring the , annual New England junior Model Congress, has been ' hailed by educators and statesmen throughout the nation. 4 I 1 1 1 l 4 1 Business Club OFFICERS Wayne Jones ...... ..........................

P ublicity The International Relations Club has 'brought to the campus of American International College the opporf tunity to become acquainted with the important issues existing among the nations of the world today. Through a series of noon and evening meetings, students of AIC have discussed such topics as the Marshall Plan, Relations with Russia, the Truman Doctrine, Aid to China, and the Palestine Problem. Qualified speakers from our faculty, as well as prominent men throughout New En' gland, have appeared before our groups giving their view' points on these controversial subjects. An ambitious schedule of conferences plays a large part in bringing together student opinion. This year The New England College Conference of International Re' lations Club was held at AIC, with our group as host. This conference, which is sponsored annually by the Carnegie Endowment for Intemational Peace, attracted over one hundred seventyffive delegates from thirtyfnine colleges. The theme was "The Foreign Policy of the United States." Other conferences were held at Mt. Holyoke College, and New Haven State Teachers' Col' lege. Our clufb members played important parts in all interfcollege meetings and established highly respected patterns for future groups to follow. With Dr. W. Menzies Whitelaw as our faculty advisor, the Inter' national Relations Club has helped to educate our stu' dents for peace. 89' A vu. .- .1 , -' 1: 4 .Xi , li 4 Q Q ? mv gina 1 .392 4 Q? ii iw S . 3 .,.f5i5w5k " Pg 5 Sk X iw 2 X , fv , ' Q- , ' S N i X, X Q- lf., .

Besides regular business meetings, the Entre Nous Club has enjoyed many teas and social meetings at which time pleas' urable activities were united with the business activities of this club. Deutscher Verein The German Club is one of the most active on the campus. Due to its nature the mem' bership of the club is not large, but great' ness is not measured by size. The main activity of the club is the weekly "Kajfeef stzmdef' These meetings are conducted in the medium of German. This enables the members to gain conversational usage of the language. Cultural aspects of German are emphasized by discussions of impor' tant German poets, composers, or authors, after which examples of their work are read or played. The club obtains German language films which are shown at eve' ning meetings. The biggest effort this year is the pub- lication of "Die Aichef' a student journal in German. Before the war, this publicaf tion was issued bilannually. The club has regained prefwar status and a rebirth of the journal marks a significant achieve' ment of the club. Committee of Aid to Foreign Families The Committee of Aid to Foreign Fami- lies was organized for the purpose of send' ing food and clothing overseas to families and friends of students on the campus. It has had many social affairs, such as dances, lectures, and carnivals at which the ad' mission has been clothes or canned goods. The committee has sent over two hundred bundles to families overseas and is now in the process of adopting a child through the Foster Parents Plan. Red Cross The Red Cross College Unit on our campus has given students an opportunity to respond to the patriotic call and also has provided an excellent chance for stu- dents to become acquainted with the workings of this organization. During the year, members have sponsored entertain' ment programs for veterans' hospitals, conducted a bloodfdonor service, and sup' ported a dance, the proceeds of which were used to send books to foreign stu' dents. The entire student body particif pated in the Red Cross Fund Campaign. OFFICERS - RED CROSS EXECUTIVE BOARD Priscilla Young. ........................... President Josephine Bruno ..... ......... ....

The end of the school year finds our mathematicians climaxing their activities with a banquet. Literary Club The Literary Club, this year, through outside speakers and discussions within the group, has emphasized the great works of literature, and the problems involved in creative writing. ' Among the Club's major activities are the annual Christmas Tea, and the several contests, which are held to discover and provide recognition for the people pos- sessing creative talents on our campus. Perhaps the outstanding contribution, in furthering this aim, is attained in the publication of the club's magazine, the Criterion. The AIC Radio Workshop The aim of the Radio Workshop has been twoffold this year. It has strived to pref sent interesting scripts of all types: drama, historical, comedy, fantasy, etc., and sec' ondly, the Workshop has attempted to promote and further the interest of those directly associated with the Radio Work' shop. The Radio Workshop has made rapid strides in all departments. A script library of well over 30 scripts has been added in an attempt to establish a permanent library. New sound equipment, which has proven invaluable, has been added, along with a collection of sound recordings. Although it has not proven necessary to start a music library at this time, the music department has been functioning extremely well under the capable hands of Arthur Pike. All oflicers and members, whether they were on the technical side or on the dramatic side, worked together as one unit and made possible a halffhour broadcast every Saturday night which, in many re' spects, resembled professional perform' ances.

The Interfaith Fellowship is a group which is composed of students of all different faiths. It is a member of the Six College Interfaith Association and the newspaper of this group was published here at American Inter' national College. One of the main projects of this group was to rehabilitate an underprivileged children's camp called "Rabbit Hollow." This project was very success' ful and enjoyed by all.

Interfaith Fellowship carried out their purpose of prof moting an understanding of interfaith and international problems and a successful year was enjoyed by all. Dramatis Personae The Dramatic Club was organized to prof mote an interest in the drama field and to give students an opportunity to develop their talents. The club presents short pla,ys as well as fullflength stage plays. In this way, a technical' experience is gained in making up, costuming, and stage management, as well as dramatic training. Periodic plays are presented in the win' ter and in the spring under the direction and supervision of the advisor. OFFICERS Arthur Morse .................... .....

This purpose is achieved through this council which enforces the regulations stipulated in the council conf stitution, with the aid of the faculty proc' tor. The council includes the dorm odicers and other representatives who are elected from the four classes in the dorm. Betty Loomis, the president of the dorm, acts as chairman at the council meetings. The council also sponsors various types of social entertainment for the dormitory residents which include pajama parties, card socials, and dances to which the resif dents of Street Hall are invited. Homecoming Day Homecoming Day, one of the oldest traditional events for AIC Alumni, was held on Saturday, November 15, 1947. Included in the program was a football game with Lowell Textile Instif tute in the afternoon and a general getftogether and dance at the Chalet in West Springheld in the evening. During the Homecoming Day, many of the former students of our college had an opportunity to see the vast changes that have taken place at AIC in the years since their departure and to realize that our college is preparing to take its place among the bigger and better colleges and universities in our country. Many of the present students had a chance to greet the alumni inasf much as many of this group began college at ap' proximately the same time. The day's events were climaxed by the dance at the Chalet, which was in charge of the Exec' utive Committee of the Alumni Association. The invitation list included all alumni, Dr. and Mrs. Gellermann, and the faculty. -W Final Exams Regularly, in the early winter, and in the late spring, the students of our college are provided an opportunity to "show what they know." From the attendance in the examination rooms, the student body evidently takes up the challenge eagerly, and enters with the intent to prof duce. Our professors at this time wear the "New Look" . . . that is, the type of a look that seems to say, "We told you to prepare." There is no necessity for the majority of students to indulge in great and extensive preparation, inasmuch as they have been doing their lessons regularly and are quite prepared for the Hbluefbooksf' For the few who have not heeded the warnings, we extend no sympathy or pity. They can be found in active study in nearby restaurants, classrooms, and in the library . . . a few minutes before the exams. The lights in the dormitories burn incessantly and notices are posted outside of the room to the effect that the inmates are studying for finals. As was said Ibefore, there are only a few rooms where this type of "goingsfon" takes place. In summation it can be said that the majority of our students show that they are worthy of the name "college students" and prove themselves during the examination period. 3'-2:6 Kr N 'V , f' , Ai- ,, 'D t if l :gs " , 1 4' ,l p 1 A .o f' I N l 'V ., 9 xii?

H cad Cheerleader Ruth Penney Arthur Morse Al Lederman Bobbie Borman Rita Sturm Bob Blake D As an introduction to the Sports Section of the Taper, we have called upon the Cheerleaders to get the reader in the proper spirit and frame of mindg therefore they have been selected to keynote this section. The Cheerleaders this year were selected by a group of impartial judges after a call was sounded by the HeadfCheerleader Priscilla Young. Boss Gal Young was greeted by twenty aspiring candi' dates at the beginning of the school year, and after a week's practice, the final "cut" was made by the ,ao 4 judges and the following were selected to lead the students this year: Priscilla Young, Rita Sturm, Bobbie Borman, Ruth Penney, Art Morse, A1 Lederman, and Bob Blake. The highlight of the cheering section was the rally put on by the Student Association, which in' cidentally sponsored the cheerleaders, preceding the first home game, held at the j. Frank Adams Playground Q fup on Wilbraham Roadj and the snakefdance which followed over the streets of Springfield after the scheduled program broke up. First Row: Slaby, Zanetti, Stephenson, Bills, Cavanaugh, H. McComb, Mullins, Carey, Jen- nings, Bassy, Frennier, Provenzano. Second Row: Line Coach DiCarlo, Backtield Coach Butova, Percy, Sparks, Staats, J. Mc- Comb Dalton, Gino, Santone, Meister, Wright, Rau Meyers, Head Coach Wood, Freshman Coach Golash. 'Third Row: DeForge, Gleason, Manitsas, Good' will Marx, Kendrew, Kosior, Nadeau, Clark, Benjamin, Beaudoin, O'Hagen. Football The longest as well as the best season in AIC football history came to a glorious finish on November 21st when the Aces, under the tutelage of Head Coach George Wood, racked up their seventh win of the year to make the closing entry in the books read as seven wins, one tie, and one defeat. The season's record stands out as even more remarkable when it is noted that the Black and Gold forces opened their cam' paign under a new and untried coaching staff. Facts and figures pay tribute to the capability and initiative of Head Coach Wood and his associates, backfield coach Henry Butova, and line coach John Di' Carlo, and Frosh Coach Gene Golash. The all-AIC coaching staff whipped the men into shape, instituted a new system, and helped the boys in other ways to do the rest. And the rest was plenty! The spirit and drive of the Aces was the great- est seen for some time in AIC's gridiron history. It was this same spirit and drive carried from the training table and into action on the field that helped the Wood' Men to roll over Fort Devens, St. Michaels, Worcester Tech, Bergen, Hof- stra, Lowell Textile, and 'finally Upsala. Of course there was more to it than that. The Aces' running, blocking, passing, and low, vicious tackling left little to be desired in many of the games. When they were down in one department they were up in another and so their winning tide rolled on. Behind a line which provided plenty of room for the backs to operate effectively, such men as Santone, Daley and Provenzano ripped into the opposing lines with telling results. Santone turned in probably the hardest and most fruitful running in many of the games. Vic, the Aces' fullback, ripped up yardage with his slashing, cutting type of running, while Dick Daley's versatility as a line smasher and a running back mounted with each game of the season. Angie Provenzano, "The Mighty Mite," found the T formation to his liking as he hit those quick openings like a bullet, Larry Benjamin's passing to probably two of the Enest ends in small college football, Bob Tourtellotte and Al Beaudoin, was a terrific source of worry to the opposition. Willie Wright and Bob Jennings added punch to the backfield with Wright running harder than ever this season and Jennings adding soine of the classiest defensive work seen from a man his size. The front wave of the Aces proved to be up to the task of opening the holes for the Black and Gold scat' terbacks. Such "shock troops" as Manitsas, Carey, J. McComb., Burns, Clark, DeForge, Marx, and Bassy turned in stellar performances throughout the season. Next season will see the return of all but one let' terman. The services of "Tiger" Al Carey, who played his last collegiate game against Upsala, will be missed. The returning lettermen and new material moving up from this year's Frosh will once again pit their offense against Springfield College in a renewal of the allfSpringf field gridiron rivalry this fall. New games with Colby College and Arnold also have added to the 1948 schedule as AIC continues in the right direction to strengthening their football relations. These games replace Scranton, Upsala, and Hofstra, who have been dropped from the schedule. Many individual performers may be singled out, folf lowing this fine season, that the Aces can reasonably boast of: the passing of Larry Benjamin, who completed the year with a .608 average: the pass receiving of Bob Tourtellotte, who was on the receiving end of 30 passes for 544 yardsg and the rushing of Vic Santone, who led the Aces in scoring and yards gained by rushing for the second consecutive year, with 5 20 yards gained. Dick Daley and Vic Santone were nominated by the American Football Coaches Association for AllfAmerican honors, both receiving one Vote.

The'Freshman squad was coached by Sophomore Gene Golash, who enabled many observers to remark that AIC will in 1948 have a wealth of reserve material when their Varsity Grid team takes to the Gridiron. Sparkplug for the "Aces" was Roger Talbot, the team's speedy and cagey quarterback, who seemed to know the play to call at the most opportune time. In the game with Leicester Junior College he scored 20 of the team's 26 points on three touchdowns and two extra points. The "Aces" won that game with comparative ease by the lopsided score of 26 to 0. In the other AIC win Frank Mackiewicz and Bud Kneeland starred for the "Aces" as each scored a touch- down against Amherst College Frosh. Talbot kicked both extra points to make the score read AIC 14, Amherst College Frosh O. The two losses suffered by the local contingent were at the hands of Dean Academy 6f0, and the University of Massachusetts Frosh 13f0. First Row: Co'Captains Grumoli and Jones.

Varsity Basketball Although 1947 was a banner year for baseball and for football, the basketball team of the past season did not fare too well, as a record of six wins against twenty defeats was registered. The longest and most energetic basketball season in the school's history was attempted this past year when a 26fgame slate with some of the nation's finest teams dotting it was in store for a willing AIC quintet under the direction of Coach J. Earl Chevalier. who was ap' pointed to fill thevacancy left by the resignation of Phil Hart. At the outset of the season, it looked as if the Aces had a chance in this "suicide" schedule as they held the Man' hattan "Jaspers" to a sixfpoint margin, 62f5 6, but as time went on and the season progressed things were not quite as rosy. After the Manhattan contest, losses were sulfered to Pratt, Brooklyn, Providence, and Valparaiso before the first victory was reached in Worcester, a birthday pres' ent to Dr. Gellermann, at the expense of Clark, 4845. From then on, it was Providence, Boston College, Holy Cross, St. Michaels, Vermont, and Newark who overf powered the Aces before the second win was realized at Medford from Tufts, 5 6'5' 4. With the beginning of a new -semester, it looked like the Aces were ready for a rebound when the first game of a twofgame series with Springfield was played at the Coliseum. After fiftyflive minutes, or three overtimes, the Aces outlasted the Maroons in this game of endurance and walked away with the Erst game, 6015 2. The score at the end of the regulation game was 40-40, at the end of the Hrst overtime, 45 '45 . Five more points were tallied by each team in the second overtime when the score reached '50-50. Then, in the third and final overtime, the Aces put on the heat and scored ten points to the Maroons' two, to take their third victory. The following night, however, at Northfield, Vermont, it was a different story as Norwich came through with an upset win, 44f42. Lowell Textile made win number four for the Chevalierfmen, 696 2. Texas Wesleyan, Dartmouth, St. Anselms, and Bowl- ing Green all proved too much for the now tired Aces as they lost their thirteenth, fourteenth, fifteenth, and sixteenth before the fifth victory was achieved at Amherst against the Lord Jeffs, 62150. With the record now five and sixteen, losses were registered to William and Mary, Worcester Tech, and New Britain before Clark was met for the second time and taken into camp, 43-62, for the six and final win of the season. Then came the second Springfield game at the Coli' seum. Eight hundred loyal student-rooters turned out for the Aces in this contest, with the hopes of seeing their favorites take game number two from their arch rivals. After a seefsaw exhibition was witnessed, with the win- ner constantly in doubt, the Maroons put on a scoring spree in the last four minutes and walked away with the contest, 4568, to even the series. Thus endeth the "suicide" schedule of 1947-48, at six wins and twenty losses. In the individual scoring department Bob Tourtellotte took the honors with 226 points, followed by Ed Kosior with 208 points and Bun Shea with 203 points. The for and against record was 1640 points for the opposition to 1370 for the Aces. First Row: Coach Butova, Manager Casper, Frennier, Zawacki, Fitzgibbons, Stacy.

Freshman Basketball The Freshman Basketball team replaced what was for' merly a Junior Varsity team this season played under two coaches, George Wood and Henry Butova. Wood started out at helm but due to pressing duties as Editor of the News Bureau, the reins were turned over to Athf letic Director Butova. Like the Varsity, the Freshmen got off to a bad start as they lost their first six games to Morse, Suiield Acadf emy, Clark, Junior College of Commerce, Boston Col- lege, and Holy Cross. Win number one was annexed against the Varsity Club. Tufts and Springfield kept their losses to the Varsity from being a clean sweep as they added loss number seven and eight to the Frosh's now weak record. However, in the eleven games, Coach Butova"s year' lings started to click as they came out on the winning side of eight of the games. Victories were scored over Lowell, Hartford Extension of the University of Conf necticut, Junior College of Commerce, Leicester Junior College two times, New Britain, Clark, and Springfield, while they were defeated by Amherst, Hartford Exten' sion of the University of Connecticut, and Morse, end' ing the season with a record of nine wins and eleven defeats. -ww... , . rw. - . f Q Q 1-3 -WY Wi 1' Q S S' L , ESF-."i , V C: 7. 3 First Row: Gibby, Cournoyer, Cramer, Tour- tellotte, Beaudoin, Turner, Callahan, Zanetti.

Baseball Under the able coaching of Henry "Honey" Butova, in his first vear at the helm, the AIC Varsity Baseball Team enjoyed one of their most successful sea- sons in recent years when they won ten games while dropping only three contests. The highlight of the season was the two victories the Aces scored over the Spring- field College "Maroons." The Aces opened the 1947 baseball campaign against Amherst College and lost a heartbreaking S-3 game to the "jeffs." After the opening loss against Amherst, the Aces slaughtered Norwich University 19-4 on a rain soaked Blunt Park diamond. The "Black and Gold" then traveled to Lowell Textile where they defeated the "Weavers" 4-2 in an action-iilled game. The pitching of Norm Cournoyer was especially pleasing to the AIC rooters. The Butova-men in quick succession added the Univer- sity of Massachusetts, Fort Devens Extension, 7-5 , West- over Field 14-2, and Worcester Tech by a score of 15-14 in an extra inning thriller to their growing list of victims. It was a capacity crowd which sat in tense excitement as Norm "Hooks" Cournoyer and Johnny Burke, Spring- Held College pitcher, hooked up in a tight pitching duel. Scoring a run in the second inning, the Maroons took a one run lead which began to look bigger and bigger as each succeeding inning passed by. In the top of the eighth inning, the Aces after being held hitless and runless for seven straight innings, got to Burke. Sonny Turner opened the frame by walking. Bill Callahan sacrificedg and when the Maroon's first baseman dropped the ball, all hands were safe. "Doc" Cramer, fleet-footed center fielder of the Aces, then sacrificed both runners a base. The excitement mounted as A1Beaudoin struck out, and John Moriarty was walked to load the bases. With the bases loaded and two out, Bob Tourtelotte became the man of the hour when he smashed a single to left scoring two runners to put the Aces ahead 2-1, but the game was not over. In the last of the ninth, the "Maroons" threat- ened to tie the score, only to have Doc Cramer come up with the throw of the year to nip Clark, Springfield pinch runner, at the plate. This throw enabled the Aces to gain a hard fought victory over their arch-rivals. Lowell Textile broke a six-game AIC win streak when they defeated the Aces in a return game at Blunt Park by a score of 8-6. Rebounding after the Lowell Textile defeat, the AIC nine handed Fort Devens a resounding 16-3 shellacking. In a tight game at Worcester, the Aces gained their eighth triumph of the season by defeating Worcester Tech for the second time 5 -2 behind the excellent pitching of Burt Gibby. With a record of eight victories and two defeats, the Aces traveled to New Britain and had a very poor day in the Held as they dropped and suffered their third and last loss of the season to New Britain Teachers 9-8. In preparation for the return contest with Springfield College, AIC easily defeated Westover Field 16-O. Behind the superb relief pitching of George Abdala and the timely hitting of reserve catcher, Willie Wright, the Aces handed Springield their second defeat 8-5. With this well-earned victory, the AIC baseball team ended a very successful season and wore the crown of champions of college baseball in Springfield. The pitching of Norm Cournoyer and Burt Gibby was important to the success of the team. Al Beaudoin led the team in hitting with a neat .342 batting average. Bob Tourtellotte was the club's leading. R.B.I. man. Not enough credit can be given to every member of this never- say-die team for their successful season. With practically the same team returning, diamond prospects are bright for another successful season. This year AIC is embarking on a schedule of at least eighteen games and more may be added before the sea- son begins. VARSITY BASEBALL SCHEDULE 1948 April 17 Providence .... . . Away 21 Amherst . . .

Two leagues were organized in basketball, the Club' Frat League and the Class League. All four classes were represented in the Class League. In the ClubfFrat League, Sigma Alpha Phi, Phi Delta Mu, Alpha Sigma Delta, Pi Alpha Nu, Zeta Chi, and the Varsity Club were repref sented. Besides the basketball program a Table Tennis Tour' nament was staged at the Springheld YMCA. To complete the Winter Sports the committee in charge added bowling to the list of Intrafmural sports with matches held at Phil Murray's Rose Bowl. In the spring, softball leagues will be organized with a Class League and a Club-Frat League scheduled to represent their respective organizations. In closing, we would like to congratulate the Intraf mural sports committee headed by Murad Tarpinian, Bill Vassar, Raleigh Dingman as well as Faculty Advisor Mr. Thomas Boyajy, for doing such an admirable job in the first year of the renewal of such a program. Girls' Sports A diiferent type of Girls' Athletic prof gram has been set up this year at AIC under the direction of Barbara J. Drew, better known around campus as "Jerry," The enthusiasm and spirit of the girls have been tremendous. The program started with a bang in the fall when hiking and basketball were started. The cofcaptains for hiking are Priscilla Robinson and Anne Topham. The seniors elected Joan Chase as their team captain in basketballg the juniors elected "Pat" Youngg the Sophomores elected June Helbergg and the Frosh elected joan Carpenter. The girls' sports program is voluntary, but the eagerness of the girls has shown that it is a must on the AIC campus. All activities have been on a point system and those girls earning onefhundred will be awarded numerals, one hundred fifty points numerals and a small letter, and twofhundred points numerals and a large letter at the completion of the school year. And basketball and hiking aren't all that are being offered. The girls have en' joyed bowling at Phil Murray's new bowling alleys on State Street. We may not get too many spares and strikes but we sure have fun anyway. To mix work with pleasure a swimming program has enabled us to improve our swimming and take life saving at the Boys' Club swimming pool which the GIRLS took over for ten Thursday after' noons. With a complete Red Cross swim' ming program for what more could a bunch of water bugs ask? And that isn't all - have you seen some of the sluggers the girls have prof duced in softball? Home runs are nothing in our lives. Even though every shot isn't a bull's eye the girls have had plenty of fun chasing stray arrows. As the 'Taper goes to press there is much talk about tennis and riding so we expect an equally large number to par' ticipate in these sports. Never let it be said that AIC girls aren't good sports - aims are even higher next year, so here's seeing you. ls A OFFICERS Robert Wright .... ............ .......

Outing Club A new organization this year, formed to acquaint students with the pleasures of the outfoffdoors and to provide an active outdoor program during the college year is the Outing Club. In this, the initial year, the club stressed a ski program for all classes of slope artists. Many Sunday excursions were sponsored to neighborhood ski resorts, with a few lengthier trips of an informal nature dur' ing the vacation periods. Ski instructions were given from time to time and a ski movie was presented on the campus. Due to the unusually fine snow condif tions that prevailed during this winter, the club enjoyed a very successful season. The future will find the club expanding its activities to be a more inclusive organ' ization that will cater to various sports. Golf Team The year of 1948 has been very success' ful in the field of sports at AIC, and with the addition of golf, the first team in the history of the college, the athletic expanf sion seems complete. The sport, in its infancy, is being sponsored under the auspices of the Varsity Club, and it is hoped that in the season of 1949, it will be recognized as a major activity. The team, led by Captain Tom Lynch, a former shop assistant to professional Harold "Jug" McSpaden, include the fol- lowing: R. Shea, A. Hachedorian, M. Gray, J. Sullivan and H. Ethier of Spring- field, W. Sullivan of Newport, Rhode Island, R. Flagg of Newton, Massachu- SERS. Scheduled matches have been arranged with Dartmouth, Boston College, Holy Cross, Springfield, and University of Massachusetts, Fort Devens Extension. With the New England InterfColf legiate Golf Championship scheduled in late May, it goes without saying that all the boys will be pointing for this big event, and it is felt that the team is capable of making a creditable showing.
