To The Future of American International College
we dedicate this 1948 Taper. 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.

DR. GEORGE H. D. UAMOUREUX
. XX V
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.

Jim led the class of '48 in its Freshmen Years, and did such a
remarkable job that he was refelected in the three following
years. He has been a valuable asset to the class as well as to the
school. jim's major is Personnel Management and he comes
from Hartford, Connecticut.
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 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.

There was much general excitement on
and about the campus in the lirst week of
December and it was about the Senior
Prom. 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
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

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-
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
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
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
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

was much talk of a lack of Spirit on the campusg but if
one understood that the majority of students wanted to
take life a bit more easy, it can readily be understood
why there might have been this slight lack of spirit. 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
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
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.

And so passed into our memories one of the most
glorious and well-remembered events of our four-year
stay at college.
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
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.

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.

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 Freshman Class enjoyed a very successful and busy
year. 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
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.

tion this year were:

The Student Activities Office, under the very
capable and friendly leadership of Miss Hen'
rietta Littlefield, assisted by Barbara Drew,
is one of the chief agencies here at AIC in
acquainting new students with the various
opportunities which the organizational life
of the campus affords.
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

This year the YELLOW JACKET has ex'
panded to twice its former size, and seems
to have expanded its trials and tribulations
proportionately. 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
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
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 annual slogan of the Taper from the time of its

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'

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
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.

On October 7, 1947, the annual Mountain Day
was held at Look Memorial Park, Florence,
Northampton. 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

The purpose of the Inter-Fraternity
Council, which was established in 1940,
was to promote fair play in pledging and
initiating. With a revised constitution, the
council has succeeded in carrying out the
prime purpose of the organization. The

Phi Delta Mu
In the year 1938, this fraternity was organized so
that the members' might bind themselves in a fra'
temal organization and promote a genuine feeling
of brotherhood. 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.
With the original purposes of organization up'
permost in the minds of all members, Phi Delta Mu
will continue to build for the future of the fra-
ternity and for the college.

One of the oldest fraternities of AIC, Zeta Chi
has two main objectives, that of devoting its best
efforts to the increased welfare of the College and
also that of affording its members a more abundant
life through its activities in the intellectual and
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

alumni have shown in the business, educational,

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
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.
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.

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'
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.
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
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 primary purpose of the Walter Rice Debate Counf
cil is to stimulate interest in and foster discussions of
current controversial questions and to give opportunity
for forensic expression. 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.

The aim and purpose of the Business Club has been to
acquaint the student with the problems and opportuf
nities in the business world. In order to apply this in a
practical manner, representatives of local lirms are inf

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.

Entre Nous has provided those students
having an interest in French culture to
study and better appreciate this interest.
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.
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

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

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
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.
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.

The Mathematics Club was formed in
order to promote a further general inf

ular meetings were held in order to give
interested students an opportunity to folf
low their interests. The end of the school
year finds our mathematicians climaxing
their activities with a banquet.
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
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'
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

The purpose of the council is to maintain
a democratic form of government within
the dormitory. 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, 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
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.
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

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

Priscilla Young ..... ...... H cad Cheerleader

Rita Sturm Bob Blake
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
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
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
'Third Row: DeForge, Gleason, Manitsas, Good'
will Marx, Kendrew, Kosior, Nadeau, Clark,
Benjamin, Beaudoin, O'Hagen.
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
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 American International College Freshman Football
team of 1947 won two games of a fourfgame schedule.
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.
Second Row: Tourtellotte, Shea, Brasile,

noyer, Beaudoin, Okscin.
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
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
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
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.
Second Row: Edmonds, Flagg, Needham, Rap'
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

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-

For the first time since the war, Intra-mural Sports were
inaugurated with the opening of the program being
started with basketball.
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
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.
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.

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.
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-
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.

Women are instinctively drawn to things which are beau-
tiful. In a way a Beauty Shop is a symbol of beauty. This
is one of the reasons why women patronize Beauty Shops.
The owners of these shops and their assistants are eager to
help you with your hair and scalp problems. They will also
be glad to tell you about the value of the Breck Preparations
made for the care of the hair. Why not enjoy the restful
relaxation of a Breck Method Hair and Scalp Treatment.
