JOHN HOMER MILLER Acting President Democratic education has no other purpose than the development of human beings as cooperative, responsi- ble members of society. Democracy cannot exist with- out such an emphasis in education, nor is such education possible except in a free society. Free education aims not only to impart knowledge, but to develop belief in and a desire for what is true and just. American International College seeks to send out into our democratic society young men and women who reverence life for its own sake, who believe in the in- tegrity of the individual, in government by law, in respect for truth, and in a good God, and more, who believe these truths are worth their lives, and still more, who hold that these truths should be shared by all men. Education, religion, and democracy have a common and urgent task to preserve and to perpetuate these truths which are not permitted in half the world. 6 JOHN F. HINES, JR. Rear Adm.

WHITELAW B.A., Barnard College M.A., Columbia University Sociology l DR. CHESTER sTowE MCGOWN IN MEMORIAM For thirty-five years Dr. Chester Stowe McGown, as President of American Inter- national College, was a leader with a farsighted vision, meeting every new crisis with forti- tude and courage, but ever planning for a better college, one which would give a greater opportunity for college training to a greater number of deserving young men and women. Our college of today is the result of this prophetic vision. Dr. McGown was a friend and adviser to all, to the foreign student in a new and strange land, to those men and women whose college careers were interrupted by military service, to the faculty whose sacrifice of time and resources was repeatedly appreciated by him, and to the people of Springfield who knew him to be a man of high ideals. For his love of people, his sense of loyalty, his unselfish service to his fellow men, his sympathetic understanding of the problems of others, and his untiring devotion to the ideals for which American International College stands, Dr. McGown will always be held in the highest respect and esteem.

Patrick H y GRY GF AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL COLLEGE l SAMUEL H. LEE CALVIN E. AMARON RAYMOND DEWITT MALLA Q1895-19085 0886-18933 fl908-1911, A man with a dream can go far, and a man with the convictions to back up that dream can go farther. Such a man was Calvin E. Amaron, son of a Swiss missionary living in the last century among the Laurentian hills of Canada. His mission in life was to help the French-Canadian people of his parish to a better and fuller life. And when his parish became the factory town of Lowell, Massachusetts, Calvin Amaron's mission remained unchanged, yet it extended far beyond the confines of his little Protestant church, for he had the founding of a school for his people as his greatest dream. So, in the year 1885, Reverend Amaron, with a group of six other ministers, signed the articles of incorpora- tion for an institution of higher learning, and on Sep- tember 18, 1885, a charter was granted to the French- Protestant College, of Lowell, Massachusetts. The group, headed by the chairman of the corpora- tion, Rev. john M. Greene, rented a house in Lowell, obtained a faculty of four, and with students number- ing no more than twenty-five, began the work that weighed so heavily in those beginning years. Funds were small and finances scarce, a total of only 55320 was all that the faculty received during that Hrst year. The second year, 1886, saw the inauguration of Cal- vin Amaron as the first president of the school, and the beginnings of a fund for the construction of a 315,000 building in memory of one of the founders, the late Reverend Owen Street. The third year of the school brought its removal to its present site in Springfield, Massachusetts. There had been an influx of French Canadians into that region, the interest in education was quite prevalent, and sub- scriptions of money were being received from people living in that area. These considerations, together with the fact that a lot worth 31,000 was offered to the Col- lege, prompted the decision to remove the College to Springfield. October, 1888, President Amaron, his two sisters and his nephew opened the school in a rented house on Wilbraham Avenue. There were thirteen students en- rolled. The City Hospital, located on the lot that had been donated, had been intended for use, but it was learned that the building could not be vacated until the following Spring. Construction was now begun on Owen Street Hall, and at the end of the first year in its new home, the College treasury held a balance of 31240. Fall of 1889 found Owen Street Hall ready for occu- pancy. Here were located rooms for the Chapel, the library, an administrative office, and classrooms. The students and some of the faculty lived in rooms on the upper floors. The former City Hospital, now also ready for use, became known as The Cottage. It held the din- ingroom, the laundry, and additional rooms for those members of faculty not housed in Owen Street Hall. Removal from Lowell brought a charter revision, and on May 15, 1890, the college was authorized to grant such honorary testimonials and confer such honor degrees and diplomas as are granted or conferred by any university, college, or seminary of learning in the Commonwealth. President Amaron, in progressively striving to bene- fit a larger group, initiated a drive for funds with which Football team before Street Hall and The Cottage, where D .A. R. Dormitory now Jtarzdf. to construct a building for women students. In 1892, the first women were admitted as students, even while Women's Building fnow known as Lee Hallj was still in the process of construction. The College Calendar of 1889-1890 gives the name of seven faculty members who were teaching the fol- lowing subjects: Theology, Mental and Moral Philos- ophy, Mathematics, English, Greek and Latin Lan- guages, History and Political Economy, F rench, Natural Sciences, Physiology and Hygiene. The spirit of self-government was manifested in the formation of the Conseil, a representative body of stu- dents and faculty to deal with certain cases of discipline. The Athletic Association dates from 1889, and the first football game was played in 1890, between the First Preparatory class and the Hill Negro boys, with a vic- tory of 7 to 1 in favor of the college. May, 1893, brought the resignation of Mr. Amaron as President, after eight years as the guiding hand in the affairs of the college. Samuel H. Lee, who had come to the College as financial secretary in 1890, now became the second President of the College. The turn of the century in the United States saw many immigrants coming to the country. While these immigrants were looked upon mostly as a source of cheap labor in the expanding industries of the land, our College sought to give the immigrant higher under- standing and greater opportunity that we take for granted in the best scions of the native stock when they attain their majority. By the year 1910, fourteen nation- alities were represented in the enrollment of 105 stu- dents. Meanwhile, the building now known as Science Hall was raised. Though planned for a gymnasium, it was never used for that purpose. Instead, the building was first put to use as a training school for young boys of from 8 to 15 years of age, most of whom came from immigrant homes. This was entirely elementary educa- tion, and most of the young men later continued on into the preparatory training for college fThe Academy, as this branch was knownj , and then entered the College itself. During the years 1893 through 1911, thirty-three students completed the degree requirements of the College. july 1 3, 1905, brought yet another significant change. Petition was made to the state, and was granted, to change the name of the institution to the American In- ternational College, a name more appropriate to the great work being done. The lifteen years of President Lee's administration had seen Lee Hall built, had made the college definitely non-sectarian, had made it co-educational, and had done much to raise the academic standards. A transition had been made from a school for French-Canadians to a school for the foreign-born of all nationalities, and The famouf Jofcer team compared of men from eleven naliony f1922j from a curriculum which emphasized the French lan- guage to one which stressed courses in English and citizenship. It was Lee's philosophy that the ultimate glory of the city of Springfield lay not in the manufacturing of in- struments with which to kill man, as is personified by the Springheld Armory, but in the development from all races of men and women "who shall go forth among their own to make alive." The administration of the next President, R. DeWitt Mallary, which Hlled the years 1908-1911, and which were brought to an end by his untimely death, further liberalized the religious atmosphere, and helped place the institution on a more stable hnancial basis. It was while President Mallary was head of the College that Chester Stowe McGown was added to the staff in the capacity of held secretary. Dr. Mallary's death resulted in Dr. McGown's being placed at the helm, and now truly began the expansion period of the College. To increase the number of students enrolled, Dr. McGown immediately set about contacting churches, missionary boards, and other Christian and patriotic Prefident McGown with the graduating flair of llae Arademy, 1925.

As his purpose became more and more widely known, these organizations began directing to the Col- lege young foreign men and women who showed lead- ership ability. The Daughters of the American Revolu- tion, particularly, took an active interest in the school, both in contributing funds and in directing students here. Through the interest of Mrs. Edith Scott Magna, of Holyoke, Massachusetts, now Vice-President of the College, a building fund for a second dormitory for girls was raised. Accordingly, D.A.R. Dormitory was erected in 1925 on the site where the old Cottage had formerly stood. A second notable instance of the sustained interest in the College had been shown the previous year, when, through the will of Mr. Frank Adams, there was erected and equipped the Frank Adams Memorial Library. Emphasis for the first fifteen years of Dr. McGown's administration had been placed mainly upon the work of the Academy and the Citzenship Departments, Be- tween 1911 and 1916, the number of degrees conferred from the College totalled only ten, and in the ten years that followed there were no graduates from the College division. Numerical limitations put upon immigration quotas in 1924 made necessary a drastic change in the purpose I 3 ,.,, .1 Laying of lhe cornerstone of the Adamf Memorial Library in 1924. of the college and Dr. McGown was a man equal to the challenge. He at once took steps to adapt the College to a new purpose, that of giving the College facilities over to American students. A new era opened at American International College, when, in 1926, fifty American students were enrolled. Low tuition rates and opportunities for self-help began gradually to attract a greater number of students from Springfield and its vicinity. The rapidity with which the change took place may be seen from the enrollment figures in 1933-34, which were 521, a number twice that of only the preceding year! A steady progress, under Dr. McGown's influence, now began. From the meager beginnings and these later limitations, the College expanded to include in 1948 over 1400 students in the regular sessions alone, with some 200 different courses in twenty-three departments. Added to this are the Evening Division, opened in 1940 to provide college opportunities to those employed dur- ing the day, and the Summer Sessions, started in 1942. All three divisions maintain the same high standards. With the addition of the summer and evening divi- sions came the opportunity for the regular students of the College to accelerate their programs in training for wartime service. Each summer, many persons other than the regular students have availed themselves of the courses offered, and, like the Evening Division, this program, in 1949, is considered one of the integral divi- sions of the College organization. For the last decade, eighty per cent of the total student enrollment has been from Springfield and the Connecticut Valley. In contribution to the wartime training programs, the College responded with the same will and spirit that has earmarked the growth of the institution to this day. In conjunction with the Civil Aeronautics Authority, the College in 1939 began offering government-spon- sored courses in pilot training. More than three hun- dred men were trained in the field. Also, in the same line of endeavor, American Inter- national College was one of two colleges in the country which were selected to render service under the Inter- American Trainee Program. In this program, seventy- two Latin-American men, representing twelve differ- ent countries, studied English at the College, and Avia- tion Mechanics at the Springfield Trade School. This program, sponsored by the United States Department of Commerce, was a part of our national Good Neigh- bor Policy. The years saw an undeniable growth in the student enrollment, in the number of faculty, and in the curric- ula offered. Wright House was established as a recrea- tional center for the students, and with the purchase of McGown Hall, more space was made available for class room use. The prestige of the college was steadily grow- ing, not only in its immediate environment, but in an everwidening radius. It was with saddened hearts that the trustees, the fac- ulty, andithe students of AIC witnessed Dr.. McGown's resignation from the Presidency in 1946. From that time, until his death in the summer of 1948, he re- mained in Springfield in close proximity to the institu- tion that he had so brilliantly guided for 35 years. An interim, with Mrs. Edith Scott Magna as Acting President followed, until Dr. William Gellerman, an outstanding member of the faculty, was chosen as AIC's sixth president. Although his term of office was brief, it was of great importance to AIC's future. Through the efforts of this man, specific plans for the construction of a new 3S300,000 library were formulated, and construc- tion was actually started. Upon Dr. Gellerman's resignation in 1948, Dr. john Homer Miller was appointed Acting President of the College. Although he has only been in office for a short period of time, his administration has already distin- guished itself by the purchase of 36 acres of land, on which stands a large mansion suitable for dormitory purposes. And that, as much as any chronological fac- tual report can, brings the history of American Inter- national up to its present day. In the new library, and the additional property, we have another step forward. The former aids us in intellectual expansion, the latter in physical expansion. These past few years have proved to be a beginning, a beginning of a new era of growth and progress on the part of our Alma Mater. We are beginning to realize the conviction which backed up the dream of Calvin E. Amaron. The Taper Staff ir indebted to Dr. Garrett V.

Office 5 all know it by a dif- ferent name and for a different purpose. Whether it's to borrow two bucks from jerry Drew, or to have a problem, question, or gripe ironed out by the gracious Director of Student Activities, students flock to this haven from academic hounding. It's the place where sixteen different meetings are going on at the same time, where the loud speaker sys- New Nr 1 3 A M5 tem run by a would-be heckler has its origin, where Joe Quinlan directs the most intricate workings of the Stu- dent Association, where the most knotty problems of world-international-national and local politics are ironed out. Students of AIC are fortunate in having such a center of activities, and they appreciate their good fortune in having both Miss Littlefield and Miss Drew to guide, advise, suggest, referee, administrate, council, and di- rect all co-curricular activities. STUDENT ASSOCIATION oseph Quinlan Pi eridefzt William O'Connor Vlce-Preridefzl Priscilla Young C orrerpofzdifzg Secretary Miss Henrietta Littlefield Recording Secretary Ti eaerzzrei' OFFICERS Eugene Golash During the past year, the Student Association has supported student activities and has attempted to bring greater coroperation among the faculty, administration, and student body in the promotion of these activities.

In addition to these projects, individual programs of clubs were financed through the Association. The Student Association may be said to be the guid- ing hand upon all co-curricular activities in the college, and the othcers and members are to be congratulated upon the way in which they so creditably carried out their duties during 1948-49.

PHI SIGMA PHI The Phi Sigma Phi Honorary Science Fraternity represents a nucleus of the science department, consisting of members majoring in the fields of Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Physics. The purpose of this organ- ization is to bring together students who have shown achievement in the physical sciences, that they may further their interests and knowledge. Each year, the fraternity presents a series of lectures in the various fields of science for the benefit of all interested students of the college. In recent years, the group has undertaken projects which have subsequently become useful additions to the science department. 87 WHO'S WHO I N I AMERICAN UNIVERSITIES Honors were bestowed upon fifteen students of AIC this year, when they were chosen to be included in the annals of WHO'S WHO AMONG STUDENTS IN AMERICAN UNI- VERSITIES AND COLLEGES. This publica- tion comes out annually, and includes the names and biographies of outstanding college students throughout the country. Such an honor is in recognition of the merit and accomplishment of the student who has outstanding qualifications of character, scholarship, leadership in co-curr'ic- ular activities, and potentialities of good citizen- ship. In addition, these students may find the WHO'S WHO placement service useful in mak- ing desirable contacts in the business and pro- fessional world. Chosen this year were: Larry Benjamin, Marjorie Drinkwater, Mary Farrell, Mark Feinberg, Gene Go- lash, Francis Hassion, Rodman Henry, William James, Ferdinand Krzyminski, William O'Connor, Joseph Quinlan, Frank Soltys, Merwin Tober, Priscilla Young, and Stamos Zades. YELLOW IACKET From its new quarters on the second floor of McGown Hall, the Yellow jacket, for the second consecutive year, was published weekly. It appeared on campus every Friday at 11 A.M. through the efforts of the circu- lation staff. The paper remained of four-page size only because of lack of funds to make it a bigger paper, but it did change in several other respects. Type was reduced in size from a ten point to an eight pointg and be- cause the printer obtained more families of type, the Yellow jarket blossomed out in a greater variety of heads. This made for a better looking paper. Smaller type also al- lowed for an increase of about 3005 more copy in each edition. Lastly, the front-page head's being changed from small to large, solid, black letter gave the entire paper a more substantial appearance. Throughout the year, the staff strove con- scientiously to report all news from an objective, unprejudiced, and non-partisan point of view. Any issues felt by the editors to be worthy of discussion and action were given preeminence in the paper, and were thus brought before the student body and the Administration. Finally, YJ editorials presented to its reading public comments, interpretations, and information appropri- ate to, and worthy of good college jour- nalism. EDITORS Co-editorf in Chief . . .

It was an effort to find room in the book for the in- creased number of organizations and activities on the campus this year, but we sincerely hope you will feel we've done justice to all. Our thanks are extended to all who have contributed to our cause, and especially to Dr. Garrett V. Stryker, to Mrs. Robinson, Mrs. Hobbie, Mrs. Mitchell, and to our advertisers.

Although tra- ditionally held in the Spring, the junior Prom took place in the early part of December. Syd Ross's popular New England college band furnished the music. The Committee, under the general chairmanship of Raymond jillson, exemplified its talents in the attrac- tive decorations of the Ballroom by carrying out as its theme a winter scene with Snowmen, Class colors, and a sleigh for the Queen. The climax of the ball came with the crowning of the Queen and choosing of her court. Doris Fournier, Secretary of Alpha Iota Gamma Sorority and Vice-Presi- dent of the junior Class was chosen to reign as Queen. Her sleigh was drawn by two ex-kings, George Groves and Robert Shumway. She was presented with an en- graved loving cup and a bouquet of American Beauty roses by last year's Queen, june Koehler. wp. 4' Q lr X' ,v - The presence of Dr. and Mrs. john Homer Miller, Admiral and Mrs. John F. Hines, Dean and Mrs. Richard S. Ullery, Mr. and Mrs. Harold E. Bowie, and Miss Henrietta Littlefield, who served as patrons and patronesses, added greatly to the spirit and dignity of the occasion. SPRING CARNIVAL One of the most-looked-forward-to events of the year is the Spring Carnival, when C.A.F.F. and Inter- faith Fellowship collaborate to raise funds for sending food parcels to needy families abroad. Each organiza- tion and club on campus raises a booth, flags of all countries fly all over the placeg and a variety show and block dance are presented. While all this is going on, both faculty and students ENJOY themselves while their money is being spirited away. ORIENTATION WEEK As joseph Quinlan, President of the Student Association, and President Dr. john H. Miller, Dean Richard S. Ullery, Miss Henrietta Littlefield, Director of Student Activities, and Coach Henry Butova were presented to the new students, Orientation Week of 1948 was under way. Mr. Quinlan told the newcomers of the workings of the Student Associa- tion, and Dr. Miller welcomed them in the name of American International College at the Freshman Assembly held in front of Adams Hall. Miss Littlefield explained the place that the Office of Student Activities will play in the lives of these students for the next four years, while Coach Butova spoke in behalf of the Athletic Department and welcomed any and all athletes from the ranks of the class of 1952. Other events of this thirteenth of September were a showing of motion pictures of AIC athletic teams in action, a hot dog roast on campus, and an informal get together with dancing at Wright House in the evening. A faculty reception and tea was held in DAR Hall on Tuesday afternoon, September fourteenth, and the Block Dance that was held on Amaron Street Saturday night, with our own jack Mahoney and his Aces supplying the music, concluded the indoctrination to college life for the 473 members of this year's Freshman Class. MOUNTAIN DAY Look Park in Northampton, October 6, saw an unusually large number of students and fac- ulty participating in the annual Mountain Day outing. The 'high point of the afternoon's activities was the rope-pull f across waterj between the Freshman and the Sophomore men, the Frosh won, after two valiant attempts, but not until George Cobleigh and Frank Soltys-seniors over-anxious to help - received mid-week baths. The Sophs had dropped the hawser rather than take a dunking. Sophomore girls took the banner on the pre- liminary tug-o-war from the Frosh lassies. At one time during the afternoon, there were three softball games and four touch-football games in progress and several groups keeping everyone posted on the World Series results, via portable radios. In spite of threatening weather, this day turned into a social and athletic success, and Co-Chairmen Bill O'Connor and Rod Henry are to be commended for their effort put forth.

NAMMY LovES 'PAPPY 94 Bemeirv' Home THE BACQN FIRST SADIE HAWKINS DAY AT AIC TAKES LEM SCRAGG "OUT OF EXISTENCEU Dogpatch, AIC, November 11 .... There was both great joy and great sadness here today. The joyful ones were the gals who cau ht their "varmints" and got "hitched" in the best Sacge Hawkins Day tradition. The sad ones were the "varmints" who no longer can call their turnips their own, cuz the is hitched! The whole catastrolphe for local males began early today when Mayor rometheus, McGurgle fired the starting gun. The males took off for the hills in a mad scramble. A short while later, the gun barked again, and the squealing crowd of females, some carrying clubs and others, ropes, darted after the men with the speed of fireballs. Some Dogpatchers arrived on campus last night by fast mule, and early this morning were wandering a- round camgus trying to figure the odds against capture. Mayor Mc urgle, when interviewed this morning, said between blubs of "joy juice" that he felt ri ht at home because so many of the AIC students were diessed "Jist like back home." As the time for the chase drew near, Lil Abner, Daisy Mae, Wolf Gal, and all the other noted citizens of Do patch milled around the starting line. Also ner- ous? pacing back and forth were the he and she shmoos, the llast of their species in existence. As the day wore on, many weary males were dragged back over the finish line and Marryin' Sam performed his famous forty-cent weddin'. First of these poor victims caught was Lem Scragg, who was rolled over the line by Sadie Hawkins' fifth cousin Bebe Hawkins. Very few males escaped capture. Many local pappies were celebrating tonight because their lovely Cughj "dotters" had ketched a varmint . . . but oh! such wailing and moaning as there was among the "varmints."

J SOPHOMORE HIC HOP Wednesday, November 5, 1948 found the Sophomore Class presiding at Storrowton. Music was furnished by Roy Chase with dancing from 8 to 12 p,m. Dungarees and "down on the farm" clothes were the mode of attire and were to be found both in the barn where dancing continued throughout the night, and in the adioining lounge where a hugh. Fire blazed, lights were low, and singers held reign. Decorations were strictly farmyard with corn-stalks, large round pump- kins, and black and orange paper appearing here, there and everywhere, dressed the barn up for the occasion. Co-Chairmen Ernest L. Conchiere and Edna R. Nick and their staff of seventeen assistants, spent the evening handing out dozens of doughnuts and gallons of cool cider while the guys and gals on the floor carried out the theme, "Look Ma - We're Dancing." 1 . 5 s I -are-"q"' l ,,f' INTER-FRATERNITY AND INTER-SORORITY COUNCILS The Councils of Inter-Fraternity and Inter-Sorority were formed primarily ,to foster friendliness and cooperation among the different frats and sororities, to give advice, and to act as governing boards in regard to pledge and initiation rules. Memberships are composed of represen- tatives from each fraternity and sorority, and the chairmanship of each group is held on a rotating basis. This year saw Inter-Sorority's sponsor- ing a social evening with all four sororities participating, and the tendering of a tea to high school girls of the surrounding area, as prospective students of AIC. Inter-Fraternity's now-famous dinner dance was held in the spring, and held true to its reputation of being one of the high- lights of the year's social calendar.

ALPHA IOTA GAMMA Every month the Gamma girls held their meeting at a member's home, at which they made plans to carry out the purposes of the sorority: to forward the recreational activi- ties and goodwill on campus, and to grant a scholarship to a worthy A.l.C. girl. Activities for this year in- cluded the popular Stocking- Foot Dance, a sleigh ride, spring dance, and picnic, in ad- dition to the usual rush party, pledgee tea, and induction banquet.

This year, one of the major accom- plishments of ASD was its incorpo- ration. This has been a step of con- tinued progress, typical of the frater- nity. Outstanding functions of the year were the annual Induction Banquet, after a week of hazing of incoming members, the very successful Spring and Fall Alumni dances. Monthly meetings held at Wright House com- bined business with pleasure. The future plans of the fraternity emphasize the fulfillment of its orig- inal purpose, and bigger and bet- ter activities both for the benefit of Alpha Sigma Delta and for the col- lege. Alfred W.

It has suc- cessfully carried out this purpose during the 1948-49 academic year. Activities for the year started off with an "after the rally pep dance" at Wright House. This year, for the first time, we sponsored a Christmas Party for children from the Child Study Home on Buckingham Street. Other activities for the year included a ralllefthe annual semi-formal dance in the spring, starting of a scholar- ship fund, and a rummage sale.

Delta Sigma Psi is that sorority formed to promote goodwill on campus, to participate in community af- airs, and to foster social activities among its members. With these ends in view, the year's program included the raising of a scholarship fund, visits to a girls' orpha- age home, and collection of tinfoil for the children at Shriner's Hospital. On the social side, in addition to monthly meetings, a Rush party, tea, and banquet for new members were given, the group was entertained at a card party by the alumnae members, and a dinner dance and final ban- quet were enjoyed at the end of the year.

The spirit of brotherhood and pride in their organi- zation and in each other has made Phi Delta Mu one of the outstanding fraternities on the campus, as the motto of better philosophy, diligence, and morality is carried and propagated throughout the college and the com- munity. The caliber of the men who comprise Phi Delta Mu is seen daily in the honors the fraternity is continually receiving in social, spiritual, scholastic, and athletic endeavors, resulting in the well-rounded development of the members. As the TAPER stands from the memories of college life, so, too, will the name of Phi Delta Mu bring back to the brothers past and present, as they read this, many nostalgic reflections of those bygone days and wonder- ful times which this fraternity has and does afford to each succeeding order of brothers. 102 l PI ALPHA NU n' P ' Mum OFFICERS Norman VanTassel ............

The constructive initiation procedure brought much publicity and credit to the organization. A total mem- bership of sixty-four was reached during this academic year.

The renovation of those rooms was an- other step in their long-range program of improvement and upkeep of the frat's sanctuary. The annual Symposium and publication of SAP's journal continued to foster and express the founders' theme, "appreciation of science,art, and philosophy." Sigma Alpha Phi's social calendar included a party given in honor of the visiting Ice Capades, dances, the pledgee smoker, annual banquet, and the induction of new members. In addition, closed meetings were held weekly at the house, forming the real basis for fraternal life and brotherly spirit. l 'E . if l -i A nf Wap . .

This year marked the foundation of a building fund, and the members held a business-luncheon for the alumni to inform them of this new project. Kappa's activities for the year included the Autumn Flutter Dance, the annual rush party and tea, induction banquet, a Christmas party sponsored by the new mem- bers, a sleigh ride, finger painting party, the annual Spring Picnic, and banquet for Senior members. The group also entertained the other sororities on campus at a Tea. OFFICERS Mary Erickson ......... Prerzdenl O Jeanne Lopardo .... V756-PI'6Jfd67Il Ingrid Benoit ..........

Their purpose was to unite in fellowship, and by pooling their efforts, they found that more could be accomplished, both for themselves and for American International College. One of the primary and outstanding achievements from this united effort was the origination of the "Yellow facketf' our weekly newspaper. At first, the material was gathered, edited, printed, and distributed exclusively by Zeta Chi men. Its success and need were obvious, so the Administration of the College took over the publication as it existed, and from thereon, the Yellow jacket became the official college paper. Today, after recently being incorporated, our mem- bers represent a well-knit group of active and alumni members whose achievements and qualifications are second to none. Even at this date, we are just entering an era of what promises to be a very successful period for both the fraternity and the college. PSYCHOLOGX'CLUB One of the most recently formed clubs on campus, the Psychology Club was started by a group of students with interests in psychological activities out- side the classroom. Activities include periodic trips to Leeds Veterans Hospi- tal, where lectures by leading authorities are presented. Additional lectures, mov- ies, and informative meetings are held on campus. Field trips to various other institutions in the locality are also spon- sored, with the result that the members are enabled to see theory of the class- room being put into actual practice. CHORALCLUB In the past, the Choral Club has been most successful in their performances at concerts, operettas, as well as in their appearances at major school functions. This year, for the first time, the group is organized as a club, with officers and a Student Association representative. The purpose of the organization is to afford students of AIC an opportunity to participate in presentations of choral music. Membership is open to all stu- dents of the college.

The purpose of the organ- ization is to create an interest in biology, and to offer an opportunity for discussions of a biological nature beyond the limitations of the classroom. This year, a two-level program was undertaken, Specialists in their respective scientific fields were brought for the pre-profes- sional students, and monthly speakers talked to the general group on subjects having wider appeal. Arcus Biologicae is a participant member of both the Connecticut Valley Student Scientific Conference and the Eastern New England Biological Conference. Again this year, a formal tea was given for the members, at which a really outstanding biologist was guest speaker. As a special project, Arcus Biologicae brought the Hamp- den County X-ray unit to the campus in December to serve all new students and seniors. 108 BUSINESS CLUB OFFICERS Harry Waterman ..,..................

Meetings are held twice a month to hear qualified speakers from our faculty and that of Springfield College, as well as from our community. Discussion of such timely subjects as U.S. Foreign Policy and the U.N. occupy much of the Club's attention. A dog roast and presidential poll were among the activities of the club this year. An active program of conferences provided the opportunity to meet students from col- leges throughout New England. Each year, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace sponsors a regional conference, held this year at the University of Vermont, at which joseph Quinlan of AIC was re-elected the regional vice-president for New England. 110 WALTER RICE DEBATE COUNCIL OFFICERS George Routsis .....,........ ,...

The activities of the group are three-fold: intercollegiate debating, sponsorship of the New England junior Model Congress, and radio debates. A three-day trip to the Vermont University Conference, and participation in the Tufts College Invitational Tourney marked the start of a very successful season. During the winter, many debates were held, both on this and on other campuses, and a series of radio discussions were given over a local station. Most commendable of the year's activities was the New England junior Model Congress, held during the spring vacation. 'I'I'I Marjorie Drinkwater Thomas Wilkinson , john Berg ........

The main activity of the club is the weekly "kaffeeJtzmde," at which time topics of interest to the members are dis- cussed in German, Speakers and German language films are presented at evening meetings. A high point of the year is the publication of "Die Airlaej' a student journal in German. D.A.R.

Freshmen girls were put through the rigors of a private initia- tion, after which a party was put on, at their expense. During the year, also, nu- merous pajama parties were enjoyed. l MEMBERS Helen Reinheimer, Mae Mann, Beverly Burlow, Roberta Borman, Ronnie Stepanian, Irene Kac- zanowicz, Rosilind Stein. , i I aa, 'Qi MATH CLUB This club was formed to bring together students having a mutual interest in the intricacies of math- ematics. Regular meetings are held to enable students to present talks, and enjoy discussion peri- ods. This year, Dr. Neil McCoy, Head of the Department of Math- ematics at Smith College, was heard by the group. An annual banquet was held in the spring. OFFICERS Philip Davis .... .......... . . .

Plaudits were heard on campus and 05 after The Literary Club brought Robert P. Tristram CoHin, Pulitzer Prize poet, to speak on "The Sub- stance Called Poetryf' Besides a lecture by Dr. Howard Spoerl of the Philosophy department at one meeting, there were presented at other meetings throughout the year Mrs. Barbara Stevens, author, a veteran Police Reporter, Bill Crowley, from the Springfield Newspapersg Mr. Robert Francis, Amherst poet, Mr. and Mrs. Morse, and others of equal fascination, before a substantial gathering of faculty and students and friends. The yearly Literary Club contest was conducted for the best poem and short story written by an AIC student and the winning stories published in The Criterion, the Literary Club's yearly publication. Altogether an exciting and fine year of enterprising endeavor was the spirit of this club. Robert P. Tfirlam Coffin 114 OFFICERS Doris Wickman Prefident Harlan Leighton Vice-Preyident Ethelyn M.

Under the direction of Mrs. Betty Sweet, the group presents a half-hour dramatic show, enabling its members to receive both instruction and experience in the various phases of radio drama-sound, production, music and acting. A comparatively new organization, the Radio Workshop has made rapid progress in its three years of existence. Membership has increased from twenty in 1946 to its present number of seventy. Better scripts are available under a more liberal budget. Sound equipment, including a double turn-table machine for playing re- corded sound has been added, which appreciably increases the functioning power of the group. Now, also, there are members with two and three years of workshop experience, who provide a foun- dation for the building of a more efficient, more proficient, or- ganization. Highlight of the current season was the SCED Convention broadcast, at which time the Radio Workshop presented its first Remote Control show. On the whole, the venture was a successful one, and one which afforded the Workshop an opportunity to in- crease its range of experience. The necessarily exacting schedule of rehearsals and broad- casts demand much of the students' time and efforts - a demand which has been met in a very responsible manner by the members. This fact, plus the aid of both Mrs. Ramos, Advisor, and Mrs. Sweet, Director, has enabled the Workshop to look back on the '48-'49 season with a feeling of pride and accomplishment. 115 We H RADIO WORKSHOP X i, VARSITY CLUB OFFICERS Tom Burns ................. ......

Trearurer Membership in the Varsity Club is restricted to men who have earned varsity A's in any major sport, and the exclusiveness of the club by virtue of that restriction, makes for an organization showing perhaps the greatest degree of enthusiasm and spirit on the campus. Members are encouraged to participate in various school activities and to maintain high academic averages. This year, the club brought various speakers to the campus, men who were prominent in some field of sports. A trophy was awarded to the outstanding freshman athlete, and miniature gold golf balls were presented to the Golf Team of 1948, in appreciation of the way in which they so successfully represented the Varsity Club. A running scrapbook is kept, in which all publicity concerning AIC's athletic endeavors is placed. In the spring, a dance was held, at which time sweaters and letters were awarded to men deserving of them. In addition, a trophy case was purchased for the new library, in which all athletic trophies won by the school will be displayed.

Mrs. Hazel Morse is faculty advisor. 118 ART LEAGUE To widen the scope of musical, artistic, and dramatic activities on campus, the Art League was formed early in january, 1949. Its reception by students and faculty was overwhelming, judging from the memberships sub- scribed to, and the enjoyment and pleasure rendered by the endeavors of the League fills a lack which has been evident on the campus for quite some time. Through the personal efforts of Morgan Levine, Stuart Cooney, and Betty Delewicz, the League grew into being. Art shows, concerts, informal music hours, and foreign films were provided free of charge for members. Among the outstanding personalities brought to the campus were Bela Urban, violin virtuoso, Louise Schafer, one of the three outstanding flute players of todayg and Alexander Leslie, Conductor of the Spring- field Symphony, who gave a noon-day talk at one of the weekly record concerts in D.A.R. Parlor. For the art-minded member, the League presented three art shows. Mr. Frederick Robinson, Director of the Springfield Museum of Fine Arts presented talks on each of the exhibits, which were set up in the new gallery in Wright House. The three exhibits were two collections entitled "2Oth Century European Painters," and "What is Modern Painting," and the third was a display of painting by AIC students, ten of which were selected for showing in the annual Inter-Collegiate Art Exhibition. It is to be hoped that this, the first year of the Art League, will herald the Leagues becoming an integral and indispensable part of college activities. 2+ s la? 504 Students viewing exbibitr in the new W1'ight Home Gallery.

The Red Cross College Unit on our campus has given the students an opportunity to become acquainted with the peace-time workings of this organization. Each month the Gray Men would travel to Leeds Veterans Hospital in Northampton to entertain the men in the wards as well as in the recreation hall. A very successful blood-donor campaign was sponsored on campus. 1 ', i l . it i Q- wif, allfi 5 as WINTER CARNIVAL Regardless of the fact that Ole Man Weather re- fused to co-operate, in that he provided dearth of snow and ice, the Carnival events of 1949 went over with the proverbial bang! From Wednesday, February 16, through Friday evening, February 18, a continuous pro- gram was more than enjoyed by students, faculty, and administration alike. Stam Zades and Merwin Tober, CoVChairmen of the Carnival, are to be plauded for the way they set up and supervised hard-working committees, and the commit- tees, in turn, deserve the expressed appreciation of the whole school. Wfednesday afternoon, the 16th, approximately ZOO couples gathered at the Hotel Sheraton and enjoyed dancing to the music of Ted Lockwood's orchestra. Corsages were provided for all the ladies present. june Helberg, Chairman of the Tea Dance, admirably aided by Bill Vassar, Ray jillson, and Arnold Kaiser, com- petently superintended this successful Carnival send- off, Later, the same evening, the Dramatic Club amused Winter Carnival guests by their performance of a three- act play entitled "Theres Gold in the Hills." So well attended was this presentation at the Museum of Fine Arts that many were turned away at the door, because of lack of standing room, and the play was presented again at a later date. jack Gatfney, '50, directed this smashing Hmellerdrammerf' and Phillis Ann Tatt and Dick Pervonga upheld the role of heroine and villain with theatrical perfection. Adrien Gaudreau, Tom Burns, jean Fillion, Mary Stewart, Jeanne Desideri, and Stanley Szulc Qamong othersj played their roles with the Hnesse of seasoned troopers. Thursday, February 17, found the spirited Carni- valists out, en masse, at the Ludlow Country Club. In- formal dancing went on all afternoon, and into the evening, a hot dog roast was held inside -- Qlt was COLD outside lj -W and a bridge tournament went on under the able supervision of Shel Salfer and Alvin Brown, aces of the Springfield Bridge Club. Harry Wfaterman and Sandy Olsczewski were co-chairmen of this Sports Dayfyes! a few hardy souls did try out a tobogganj, and their committee consisted of Bill Vas- sar, Bob Meister, Wally McKay, and Gene Golash. Thursday afternoon, late, found the AIC girls' var- sity basketball team, under the coaching of jerry Drew, easily winning a game with Morse Business College of Hartford, at the Hope Church gym. Score: 35 to 26. The climax of the Carnival was reached on Friday KING AND QUEEN evening. Ingrid Benoit, Chairman of the Coronation Ball, and Rod Henry, in charge of decorations, are especially to be thanked for the superhuman efforts they expended to make this evening the success that it VVIIS. Lovely Betty Magiera, ,5O, and personable Pete Geanacopoulos, '51, were crowned Queen and King, as applause showed how greatly their subjects approved. With the words, "And may the people acclaim their queen," Dr. john Homer Miller placed the crown on the Queens head. Mrs. Miller then placed the age-old token of kingship atop the head of the King, as the admiring throng surrounded the throne. The music of Larry Fotine's orchestra brought many approving com- ments, and it was felt that dancing could have con- tinued all night, provided the band would play. 1.

VARSITY FOOTBALL The third postwar edition of the AIC football com- bine yielded to a stubborn New Britain Teachers eleven on November 19th to close out a rather inauspicious season. It was one characterized by heavy preseason losses, as well as an unfortunate series of early game injuries that had telling effects on the nine game sched- ule as it progressed. The departure of star wingmen Bob Tourtelotte and Al Beaudoin, center jim McComb, then later George Grant and Will Nadeau could not be slighted by Aces' coaches, It was a campaign, how- ever, that was not without its share of color, thrills, and even upsets, as far as Yellow jacket' rooters were con- cerned. Henry Butova, AIC alumnus, became the third man in as many years to be appointed gridiron coach. "Hon- ey's" former teammate, joe O'Grady and co-captain in 1946, took over the reins as backfield mentor. Scranton, Hofstra and Upsala were replaced by Colby, Arnold and Springfield on the schedule. As for the latter re- placement, it was a renewal of the intercity rivalry after a lapse of one year. The Aces traveled to Waterville, Maine for their first encounter with the Colby Mules, and although they displayed many spurts of offensive power, found the home goal-line impregnable. The Mules made pay dirt on two occasions in spite of gallant work by the AIC linemen. The Aces then journeyed to Milford, Connec- ticut where they found the running and passing ability of Arnold College a little too much to cope with. This was the first meeting of the two elevens, and the 20 - 0 victory by the Terriers was not as one-sided as the score indicates. Captain Vic Santone did some fancy second-half ground gaining for the Aces. Butova's boys made their initial home opener a pleas- ant one as they scored against Fort Devens before five minutes had passed. This was their first touchdown of the season, and Larry Benjamin did the final honors. The line performed in brilliant fashion led by Nick Manitsas, who played his third 60 minute session with- out relief. Provensano, Slaby, Daley and Bills excelled on the offense. In another home contest, the Aces discovered that Howie Green and Rick Ferrari, Worchester Tech run- ners par excellence, were no cinch to bring down. Well- aimed passes by jack Bills set up the only Yellow and Black score, while the Engineers were garnering nine- teen points. AIC took to the road again, and found un- beaten Bergen College of New jersey in a not very hospitable mood. The Indians revenged their previous year's loss to AIC with a 37 - O win. Against St. Michael's College in Burlington, the Aces finally got on the winning trail, as they upset the highly favored Purple Knights in a thrilling battle. After three periods of scoreless football, the Mikemen drove for a first down on the AIC one foot line only to be pushed back to the 23 yard marker by Bob jen- nings, Frank Ballas and the rest of the charging Yellow Jacket linemen.

The AIC gridsters came from behind late in the third quarter to score a touchdown and extra point and edge out Lowell Textile 7 -6 before returning home to meet Springfield College. Ossie Solem's Maroons, who were rated among the top in New England small-col- lege football, showed their superiority by blanking the hard-fighting Aces 35 - 0. Nearly 6000 fans crammed Pratt Field for this traditional contest, and cheered our Aces for their courageous defensive stand in the first half. Herm Maniatty, "Mutt" Rau, Bob Fleischner and Pete Geanacoupolous were distinctive in the lineg while Vic Santone, Jean Slaby, Angie Provenzano, Dick Daley, and Bob jennings were standouts in the back- field. The curtain fell on the pigskin campaign a week later at Pynchon Park, when after threatening to score in the first period, the Aces were forced to relinquish to an aggressive New Britain Teachers eleven. Larry Ben- jamin, who was playing his last game for AIC, put on a sparkling exhibition of defensive kicking much to the pleasure of the home fans. The final tabulations found Angie Provensano lead- ing runner with 356 yeards gained, followed by Vic Santone. Larry Benjamin topped the forward passing YUM", department and punted a 37.5 average, while Pete Geanacopoulous was the leading pass receiver. The Aces ended the season with a total of two wins, one tie, and six losses, and were able to collect 26 points against 144 for their opponents. With the loss of only one starter due to graduation, and a handsome flow of talent from last year's frosh squad arriving, the propects for a successful coming season appear bright. Nick Manitsas, who was awarded honorable mention on the United Press All-New Eng- land football selections, and Angie Provensano, run- ning star of the '48 team, were elected co-captains for 1949. FRESHMAN FOOTBALL As went the Varsity, so went the Freshman football team, as it battled through a tough four-game slate and looked as if it were going to town only to be stymied after winning their first game soundly 18-0 over Leicester jr. College. The charges of Coaches Gene Golash and Fred Zanetti met their "Waterloo" after this first win, how- ever, as they played the University of Mass. Fresh at Amherst next and lost that one, 7 -Og then on to Troy, N.Y. where they were barely edged out by R.P.I., 7 - 6, and in the hnale the Yearlings went back to Amherst, where it all started, to get knocked off by the Stockbridge School of Agriculture,13 - 7. All was not lost, however, as the experience gained by the Yearlings was invaluable and is expected to bol- ster the Aces' chances this coming year. Of notable mention are the Butova brothers, Murph and Mickey - Murph for his place kicking and Mic- key for his line-backing, Ends Bert Butters and Paul Anton, quarterback Herb Escott, tackle George Rant, center Joe Tromboli, and the two "watch-charm" guards Dave O'Brien and Dave Teece, SCHEDULE October 15 ,...........

VARSITY BASKETBALL 1948-49 proved to be as disastrous in basketball as it was in football as this edition of AIC basketball "went through" a 23 game schedule and only came out on top four times. These being against Providence College in an upset win, 55 - 51, then Worcester Tech, 56 - 52 in mid January. At the turn of the second semester the Aces turned out win number three, at the expense of Clark, 61 -- 60. The last win of this disastrous cam- paign came at the close of February when a 63 - 62 decision was eked out over the cadets of Norwich University. Not much good can be said about a season that pro- duced results like this but many necessary needs were noticed if AIC is to continue playing the high caliber of opposition it chooses to play. These needs will be met partially in the purchase of the Reed Estate for development of an athletic plant. This lack of physical facilities alone could be cause enough for the disastrous results in any athletic program when the highest caliber of opposition is met, although it was not the only factor leading to the downfall of the Aces in '49. Next year, however, will be another year and only time will tell what shall be the result. Our maintenance of the best opposition, therefore, can be said to be the only bright spot of this past season. Following is the record, with scores: AIC 33 Arnold 45 3 5 Manhattan 96 54 St. Anselm's 94 34 Dartmouth 69 47 Providence 74 57 Vermont 79 5 3 Springfield 58 41 Fort Devens 45 50 University of Massachusetts 63 "'55 Provindence 51 38 Holy Cross 73 it 56 Worcester 52 50 New Britain 61 42 Springfield 67 'f' 61 Clark 60 50 Lowell Textile 52 72 St. Anselm's 96 62 Arnold 7 2 61 St. Michaels 78 48 New Britain 76 'F 63 Norwich 62 60 Clark 64 36 Springfield 48 1 15 8 I 5 3 5 'I' denotes games won The AIC freshman basketball team coached by "Hank" Wiatrowski provided many thrilling moments for the home fans in the process of a diversified 21- game schedule. Several contests were decided in the closing minutes of play, and it was not an infrequent occasion to find the Aces on the long end of the score. The Frost started well with four victories in their hrst six games, which included the conquests of Wor- cester Business School, Leicester jr. College, Worcester jr. College and the University of Connecticut Exten- sion. The latter was one of these guess who affairs that found the Aces displaying brilliant form in finally out- scoring their opponents 73-71. Zordon and Butters were the offensive stars with 16 and 10 points, respec- tively.

This was an- other aHair that showed the home forces in a better light as jim Kosiorek found the hoops for 18 points. The Aces proceeded to annex about half of their re- maining games, and against the Western Mass. College of Pharmacy scored their highest total - 75 points. Big Gary Anton, Bert Butters, and Herb Escott found the nets for double figures. Other triumphs were over Worcester Tech, Lowell Textile, and Clark University. Next season's varsity combine will do well to look closely at the court talents of such stalwarts as Escott, Butters, Zordon, Kosiorek, Daly, Mack, Della Guistine, and Anton. All in all, it was a creditable campaign and a good beginning for the yearlings of AIC. Don Yoon hookr one in or Frank Otrirzg, Holy C ron, attempt: blork.

Henry A. Butova again led the Aces combine for his second consecutive year. In the 1947 campaign the Yellow Jackets ended the season with a 10-3 record. The highlights of the season were the 10-5 victory over the arch-rivals, Springfield College: the double play combination of Bill Turner to Bill Callahan to Iohn Moriarity, and the 11-2 win over Colby at Waterville, Maine. This victory was on the heels of a Colby win over Boston College, which was reputed to be New England Champs in Collegiate Baseball. This year the services of seven key-men were lack- ing with the graduation of Doc Cramer, George Gutt and Norm "Hooks" Cournoyerg transferring of George Abdala and Roger Geoffrey and the leaving of school of Bob Tourtellotte and Buck Grumoli, Additions from the Freshman team that should prove valuable will be Jack Hurst, Ed Gruzska, Art King and Pat Fitzgibbons as well as a few others. Norm Cournoyer was the leader in the pitching department last year with a seven win three defeat record. In the hitting department Bob Tourtellotte and Harry "Doc" Cramer were the leaders with averages of .359 and 355, respectively. The Schedule for this year finds the addition of Boston College in a home and home series, St. Michael's and M.I.T. in single games. This year the schedule has also taken a two game jump from 13 in 1947 to 15 in 1948 and now 17 for 1949. FROSH BASEBALL-1948 The freshman baseball team of 1948 won two, lost three, and had two more games rained out. Both victories were at the expense of Abbey School of Coon. while the losses were to Springfield Col- lege Frosh f2j and Mass. State. Outstanding performers who may be of use to the varsity this year are, jack Hurst, pitcherg Art King and Pat Fitzgibbons, infielders: and Eddie Gruzska and George Debakis, outfielders. Jason Tonkonogy as manager, and joe O'Grady as coach, handled the team. Big Vic Keedy, George Dean, Drew Langhauser, Bill Stacey, Al Frennier, all regulars, have since left A. I. C. Rounding out the squad were jerry Pimental, George Grant, Paul Drew, Frank Ballas, Lefty Zimmerman, and jim Fenn. Highlights of the season included the eleven strikeouts in five innings by jack Hurst against Springfield Froshg the long ball hitting of Ed Gruzska, flashy shortstopping by little Art King, and the fine team play in the 9 to 8, ten inning win over Abbey School at Hartford.

Led by player-coach Bill Turner, this athletic aggregation had a smooth skating sextet. Seven games were scheduled against some of the top collegiate teams in New England, the highlight of which was the home-and- home contests with the National Champs, Boston College Eagles. The first game with this highly touted opponent saw a still-cold AIC sextet get set back 10 - 2 but they won much praise by the Boston public. However, at their second meeting on the Coliseum ice our "up-and-coming" Aces threw a scare into the BC'ers as they held them to a 6 - 3 score, as well as tying the score at 3 - 3 in the third period. The remainder of the schedule resulted in a 10 - 5 loss to a strong Brown University sextet and wins over Fort Devens, 4 - 3, Suf- folk University, 10 - 6 and two resounding triumphs over our cross-town rivals, Spring- field College, to the tune of 7 - 3 and 6 -1. As far as the future goes, hockey has taken a long stride forward and final recognition as a formal college sport is seen. Wingman Fred Zanetti was elected captain for next year. The story of hockey at AIC would not be complete, however, without giving credit where it is due. This credit falls on the shoul- ders of player-coach Bill Turner who was sin- gularly responsible for the movement of putt- ing the Aces on the iceg as well as molding the winning combination. Turner, unfortu- nately will be lost as a player next year because he is a senior. 134 1 I I I i I 4 Bark Roux' Asst. Mgr.

This year has been a builder season and it is hoped that another year will bring out enought enthusiastic players so that the school will be able to have a Jr. Varsity team as well as a Varsity team. Jeannette Harpin '51 of Agawam and June Helberg '50 of Ludlow were elected co-captains. Much credit should go to the guards for their endless defensive work. In girls' basketball guards do not shoot. The forwards on this year's team included Capt. June Helberg, Priscilla Robinson, '-49g Irene Kaczanowicz, '52g Dolores Romejko, '52 g Louise Bradley, '50. The guards were Capt. Jeannette Harpin, '51 5 Anne Topham, '51 g Betty Topham, '5Og Janice Reynolds, '51 and Catherine Shaylor, '51, l. ,V ' ,f r Again this year the girls have enjoyed ten weeks of bowling at the Rose Bowl. Many girls have expressed their desire for the swimming program which will be held at the Boys' Club again this year. Four Red Cross Water Safety Instructors have been selected to teach these classes. Courses in Life Saving, improve- ment in strokes and diving have been planned. One of the best-liked sports for the girls here on campus is softball. As the TAPER goes to press the Director of Women's Athletics, Miss Jerry Drew, is making plans for a varsity softball team. As their are not enough girls enrolled in the school to have an intramural sports program we find it necessary to seek competition else- where. The athletic program is open to all. It has been a lot of fun and with another year it is hoped there will be much more enthusiasm.

Bas- ketball, bowling and softball were enjoyed by all who par- ticipated. The basketball leagues were conducted at the Howard St. Armory and there were two leagues, the Class League and the Club and Frat League. Two trophies were donated by the Student Association to these leagues, the Dr. George H.D. L'Amoureux Memorial Trophy which was won by the Class of '50 and the Garrett Voohrees Stryker Trophy won by Phi Delta Mu in the Club and Frat League. Softball and bowling were carried on a very informal basis and no winner was declared. This year the Intra-Mural Sports Committee under Direc- tor joseph I. O' Grady and his assistants Ed Kosior and Bill Vassar have taken over all Intra-Murals under the guidance of the Athletic Department. Leagues in all sports have been conducted on a very formal basis with competition running high in both the Class Leagues and the Club and Frat Leagues in all sports. The aim of the committee is more and keener competition between the classes, f rats, clubs and organizations on campus. At the present time Intra-Mural sports are still in a growing stage and the necessary impetus needed to push it into adulthood is participation by every sportsminded indi- vidual on campus. Next year the committee hopes to include swimming and a good volleyball league in their ever growing curriculum. sw' 'J ff' wf""'f' I g 'Nw , - T T "ff-"'tt fm f' , f . ww I 1' i' P in-V' Sigma Alpha Phi and Zata Chi in Frat League harkelhall game, Left to righl: Direrlor fofeph O"Gmcly and affiftazztf Willianz Var- Jm' and Ed Karim' of lhe Ifzlm-IVlm'al Sportr Commillee.

CREW' Crew, although a minor sport, had the major sports trip again reinstated into its training period for the first time since the war. That was the Florida trip which usually takes place yearly during the Easter vacation. This year fifteen members of the Crew, under the direction of Coach Bill Rubner, travelled to Rollins College, Winter Park, Florida for two weeks at a minimum expense to each member. Races, there, in- cluded Dartmouth and Rollins Qlost both, while an- other race took place on the way down at Lexington, Virginia, where the AIC shell lost a close one to the "Generals" being nosed out by a foot. On home waters the Crew was not too successful, either, losing to Amherst and Boston University with its only victory of the season coming at the expense of Clark University of Worcester. Because of a rather poor season, plagued by many outside conflicts, we did not enter the Dad Vail Regatta, a small edition of the Poughkeepsie Regatta. However, conditions are im- proving and with them we hope also the Crew will too. With Crew becoming a major sport, a bigger and better schedule has been planned for the 1949 season with new opponents being added. Those already sched- uled are University of Tampa, University of Miami, Florida Southern, and possibly Navy. MEMBERS OF THE CREW Vanity Boat: Bow - 1. Chet Williams, 2. Kent Fernald, 3.
