Dr. john Homer Miller The central emphasis of all education today must increasingly be to teach people not so much how to make a living, as how to live together. The XVorld's Fair over fifty years ago was largely an exhibition of our agricultural development. The YVorld,s Fair a few years ago was primarily an exhibition of our mechanical development. The forces of education must make the YVorld's Fair fifty years hence an exhibi- tion of our social development, the progress we have made in learning to live together. In the past century education was centered in the study of nature. In this century, education must devote itself to the study of human 4 Photo by Arthur johnson nature. Yesterday it may have been all right for people to spend their precious time learning how to live alone and like it, but today education must teach people how to live together and like it. This is the task education must set for itself in tomorrow's world. Educating people to live together must begin in teaching them to have faith in and respect for one another. Education in home, school, and church must combine in teaching many people to see that the important thing about any man is not his class, his race, his nationality, the shape of his head or the color of his skin, but that he is a person entitled to equal rights and opportunities. If democracy is to survive and commend itself to the world, a new generation of young people must be educated in the democratic religious concept that personality is equally valuable and essen- tially the same whatever its color, class, or race. The future of democracy depends upon how well education can succeed in teaching people to live togeher in mutual respect. Even as educating people to live together is basically a matter of teach- ing them to respect one another, so children cannot be conditioned in mutual respect apart from the teaching that every person, whatever his race, is the most priceless thing in the universe. Never can people be taught to practice the brotherhood of man unless they are convinced of the Father- hood of God. It was a recognition of this fact that caused the Philadelphia superintendent of schools to say, "I am convinced that students are only half educated unless they are taught spiritual values." Education apart from religion cannot produce a people to whom cooperation, mutual aid, and mutual respect are second nature. Educating people to live together in tomorrow's world is essentially the task of making real the Fatherhood of God in the brotherhood of man. A world which science has made a neighborhood, education must now make a brotherhood. One of the paradoxes of our time is that as science and technology make the world smaller physically, education must produce bigger people psychologically, morally, and spiritually. As economics has made the world a physical neighborhood, education must teach people to be neighborly. An old lady expressed the thinking that has been too typical of our generation when she was asked her opinion of the United Nations. "The United Nations is all right," she replied, "except there are too many foreigners in it." The smaller the world becomes physically, the larger people have to become to live in it. Someone may rightfully ask, "How can education achieve such a stupendous responsibility?" The answer is that a new generation of young people can be taught anything we want them to become, the Fascists and Communists have taught us that. They have impressed upon the world that children can be molded into what we want them to become. Every child is a bundle of possibilities to be conditioned as we choose. A child is born without prejudice of race or of idea. A new-born baby is not yet a German, a japanese, a Russian, an American, Italian, Englishman, or Frenchman-not until we teach him he belongs to a particular race or nationality. He is born not with the particulars that divide us, but with the universals that unite us. Every child is a new piece of humanity who can be molded into a world citizen. Here is the seemingly impossible hurdle: We cannot teach children what we are not ourselves. If education fails to teach a new generation to live together cooperatively in mutual respect and sympathetic understand- ing, it will not be because young people cannot be taught, but because of us in homes, schools, and churches who are doing the teaching. We must be what we Want our young people to become. ffrom an editorial by Dr. john Homer Miller in the Yellow jacket of March 25, I949l Merrill Blanchard, Superintendent of Building and Grounds Mrs. Margaret H.

Graduation day, with Admiral William F. Halsey speaking at the commencement exercises, was, of course, a memorable day for every senior. Above, Admiral Halsey receives iz degree from acting president, john Homer Miller, with A1C's Admiral Hines sharing in the exercise. For some, the closing chapter of life at AIC became a gay and enjoyable two semesters. They were seniors, and this was the fulfill- ment of many years of study. XVith fewer classes-and those in their own field, with a growing attachment to the campus and to friends, both faculty and students, and with a higher understanding of the world around them, the last year was to be for them a culmination of that wonderful social experience, college life. But to others, the closing chapter was somewhat frayed and in- distinct. The years had been busy and full ones. Crammed into them were studies and activities. perhaps. too. the responsibilities of a job or a family. Most of the graduates had served in the war: some had interrupted an education to travel abroad-incognito. .Xt any rate, graduation was just another jumping-off point. with only memories to return to. Things don't happen abruptly in nature. but in human society, rapid change is the order. The adjustment was made to college life, and surely another one would be made soon after June. As always, there were world problems to be solved by this "finest, most promising graduating class." always. there were the successful students and the successful graduates, "whom fame and fortune had sought after." But for most. plans are hard to formulate: and designing the years difhcult. Life and society have much to offer to those who feel prepared, who, with a light in their eye and a sure posture, face its eternal problems with a "flare for life," with an enjoyment in doing and in acting. And so another group shall go from American International College, leaving with the memories of their own personal college ex- perience-the classes, studies, activities, and varied routine-and with the remembrance of AIC's recent vital growth, its extended campus, its responsible new library, its Hne administration, and its increasing student body. They leave, too, with sincere gratefulness toward the members of the faculty-their friendship, their understanding, and their counsel. I5 1950 Senior Class Officers In preparation for the first week in june . . . and the last of their four years at AIC, the ofhcers of the class of 1950 established, last September, a number of active com- mittees. The campus has seen seniors scurrying to be measured for caps and gowns, posing for Bosworth's camera, wracking brains for graduation speakers, and planning on and on about the senior prom, the banquet, and the new dinner- dance for the graduating class and their guests. The class gift, at the time of this writing, was undecided, but it had been announced at the YVinter Carnival that copyright and arranging expenses for AIC's new school song were paid by the graduating class. Much of the work was done by responsible committee chairmen, with able class-president. Rod Henry, steering the class to its destination, a port of embarkation somewhere in june, 1950. Carnival-man Lloyd Piccin was vice-presidentg Eleanor Anderson, Secretary, Mel Zeidenberg, two-year Treasurer, and Dennis Brown, Member-at-large.

General Business Miss Henrietta Littlefield Director of Student Activities DAS VOGELNESTHEIM, or Stryker Hall by Mark Feinberg The Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps have the Pentagon Buildingg Rockefeller has his Cen- ter, Truman has Blair House, Churchill has No. 10 Downing St.g and AIC has Stryker Hall. Doubtless the others are also nerve centers of tre- mendous activity, but for us, there could be no greater hub of effort, no busier bee hive, no more vital spot than the white house at zo Amaron St. Once the building where oflicers of the administra- tion and faculty members carried on the routine of directing the college, Stryker Hall is now the cross- roads of the AIC student world. Within the walls of Stryker Hall can be found a modern miracle in order and confusion-a paradox of human toil and play. Things happen on four levels of the building, and in all imaginable directions. Down in the basement tucked away in a corner behind stack of supplies is the photography lab of Visual Aids director Warren Messenger. Divided in two sections, the photo lab is the picture of under- ground goings on as Warren's two assistants, Milt Savos and Ken Miller plot and plan shutter phe- nomena, while Warren, bleary eyed from taking pictures the night before, fiddles with sinks, clocks, and jugs to see if anything will develop in the darkroom. And up on the first floor, Bookstore-manager Mrs. Egan pores over her books about books so that she can get books for the students who need books for their courses. VVhile Mrs. Egan works behind the scenes, two of her assistants, Barbara DeBell and Bob Maker, scramble back and forth behind the counter searching for a copy of "The Philosophical Aspects of the Philandering of Philistine Philanthropistsf' or an algebra text which will probably cost the anxious student buyer a mere Sl4.00. At the same time a steady stream of students pours into the bookstore in search of pads, pencils, sweaters, caps, bracelets, stickers, rings, banners, lockets, glue, ink, and books. But if thing happen fast in the bookstore, then the second floor houses a whirlwind of activity. Heading the group of offices on number two of num- ber 20 is that of Miss Henrietta Littlefield, Director of Student Activities, otherwise known as the "DA." lvithin the thick carpeted office of the "DA" occurs mediation, meditation, co-ordination, speculation and a multiplicity of events. The "DA" and her wisdom have solved many problems and shaped many mem- orable events at AIC. Assisting Miss Littlefield is that wonderful gal from Maine, jerry Drew, coach of AIC's winning girls' basketball team. The normal procedure is to take any and all questions of student activities to the SA office and it is Jerry who must first face them. Behind the SA office fin locationj is the den of AIC journalistic endeavor. Things happen in three directions in the Yellow jacket room-up, down, and around. If one of the Editors looks around for a story and can't find it, his direction is usually up, and some bedraggled reporter goes down under a a barrage of well chosen monosyllables. Co-Editors Bob Hogg and Stan Berchulski make the "YI office" their second home as they work into the wee hours of Wednesday nights to put the college weekly to bed. Of course their efforts are sometimes interrupted by questions, comments or just plain cracks from the peanut gallery, otherwise known as the department editors and business staff. Across the hall and only an epithet's throw away is the home of the Student Association, and its Presi- dent, Joe Quinlan. Joe had the door fitted with a noiseless spring, which, when properly adjusted, gives conferees in the room a good deal of privacy. Here we hnd members of the Student Association in end- less discussion. It is also a good place to leave books. Frank W. Soltys, Director of the News Bureau, is in command of the other office on the floor. Con- siderably smaller than the other rooms on the second level, Frank and I inherited it from Admiral Hines, who when leaving assured us that the smaller the office the more compactness, the more efhcient, the better. The News Bureau, which is called the eyes and ears of the college, is at an advantage being located at the end of the hall. For location, the TAPER has the best room in the building. Up on the fourth level sits Howard Paine, editor of the TAPER. From his perch in the front window he scans the street below, and spotting delinquent staff members, swoops down with a vengeance. And so as we see many changes on the campus of a growing college, the hope is that one thing will never change-Stryker Hall-inside, outside, up, down, sideways, around, and through.

It consisted of a series of photographs depicting the various steps student journalists follow in their efforts to write and compile material for each weekly edition. The photographic display has been included in the pages of this year book, following a brief exhibition in Boston, Mass. at a Public Relations festival there. In its routine procedure of conveying to the students matters of importance and interest, the Yj has been fortunate to be free of any censorship yoke, thus supplying its student readers with the proper editorial comment, interesting feature stories, and adequate news and sports coverage. This year's staff, which worked under the guidance and leadership of Co-Editors Stan Berchulski and Robert Alan Hogg, was composed of many brilliant writers who show much promise and assurance for a successful publication in the future. Beginning writers work for one year as cub reporters and are promoted according to their respective abilities and efforts at an annual election conducted on democratic principles. Consequently, a competitive system for promotion exists, making for keener interest and conscientious effort on the part of all staff members. Yellow jacket policy has always remained liberal and without bias. All clubs and organizations have received adequate and fair publicity, as determined by the discretion of the editors, and all such publicity has been given objectively. Only the editorials have con- tained opinion but they were always written for the purpose of provoking thought on some current issue of importance. By and large, the year has been a successful one for the YI, due to the efforts of its staff members, the understanding guidance and co-operation of its Faculty Advisor, Mr. Milton Birnbaum, and to the liberal policy shown it by the administration.

Another Day, Another Week Meanwhile, as is the case every week, members of the staff start the cycle all over again. This time 81 another person or another event, but always the same sure-Ere method. Can we say this is THE END l The 1950 TAPER You've just seen the workings of the hectic weekly process that Yj writers experience in their diligent watch over campus affairs. The TAPER staff does the same job with a bigger chapter of AIC life to record, bigger bills to pay, and just as frantic scurrying to meet those deadlines. Every year there's the prob- lem of how many seniors to a page, and how much space for each club, and who gets credit where, and on and on. The staff hopes everyone's happy. A flock of new organizations began this year on cam- pus and we hope we've given a fair story of their activities. Four pages go to the Yj because of Ken Miller's excellent photo series, with special sections on AIC's new Reed Estate campus, the annual Winter Carnival, and the biggest event in our four years here, the new McGown Memorial Library. We wondered how much space should go to the TAPER, but really the TAPER takes up 168 pages and its yours to look over and evaluate. TAPER 1950 was the production of a hard- working staff headed by Howard Paine. Stan Berchulski was literary editor and Roy Duquette managed all photography. The senior section was the work of june Helberg and the sports section was written by Frank Soltys and Bill Vassar. Frank YVotton, as business manager, headed an alert staff of accountants and adver- tising solicitors in the financing and production of the book. All TAPER contributors are listed on the title page. Who's Who IN AMERICAN UN1vERs1T1Es AND COLLEGES Who's Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges has selected this year Hfteen students from the senior class at Aic for national recognition. For inclusion in the Who's Who listing, the candidate must be one who, "in addition to extra-curricular activity during his entire college career, has attained an academic standing above average and who, through his present contributions and future promise, reflects credit upon his college." Of those nominated, there were five reappointed for a second year. They are in the first row of the picture: Eugene Golash, Mark Feinberg, Frank W. Soltys, Joseph Quinlan, and Rodman Henry. Standing behind them are: Phyllis Ann Tatt, Leonard Plotkin, John P. Gaffney, William Vassar, june Helberg, jean Fillion, George Routsis, Howard Paine, Josephine Bruno and Patrick Moriarty. 83 Alpha Chi AIC'S HONOR socnsn' AIC's first all-school honor society was formed last year too late to be included in the 1949 TAPER. It's second year saw a good increase in membership and the beginnings of an excellent program of in- tellectual activity. A fine student-faculty discussion on education and its role in contemporary society was held last fall at Wright House, with Dr. Gadaire, founder of the Chapter here, hoping that purely intellectual discussions of this sort could be had more- often on campus as a sign of the mental awareness of Alpha Chi members. Composed of the top ten per cent of the Junior and Senior classes, Alpha Chi distinguishes between students "only on the basis of genuine worth." Completely non-sectarian, it uses scholarship and character as its only measures. The motto is the biblical, "Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make ye free." B4 THE LAB-RATS' FRAT Phi Sigma Phi Primarily organized to represent a nucleus of the Science Department, this honorary science fraternity consists of members majoring in the Gelds of Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics, and constantly strives for a closer relationship between its student members, who, incidentally, are accepted into the organization solely on their achievements in the physical sciences. This aim for better relations, coupled with affording members with means for furthering their interests and knowledge, is given each year through various lectures, meetings and social events. Some of the activities engaged in and promoted by the fraternity this year were numerous scientific discussion meetings, a special convention with Phi Sigma Phi Alumni serving as guest speakers, an annual Christmas dinner for all members and alumni, and a banquet in May at which newly elected officers were installed. One of the feature functions of the organization this year was its co-sponsorship of the Goethe Bi-centennial Observance in affiliation with Alpha Chi and the German Club. Phi Sigma Phi has also worked for the dissemination of scientific information to science majors. President Leonard H. Plotkin directed the fraternity's activities during the year, under the guidance of Faculty Advisors Dr. Robert Cobb and Dr. Isadore Cohen. Mildred Cherichetti and Frederic Kwapien executed the duties of Secretary and Treasurer, respectively. 85 Spring Carnival livery year, 'long about May, when Mother Nature withdraws her blanket of ice and snow and replaces it with bits of green that sprout with life and begin to sway before the spring breeze, two of our "humanity" organizations, C..-X.F.F. and Interfaith Fellowship, join forces as co-sponsors of an annual Spring Carnival. It's a unique extravaganza, a miniature Coney Island with Ferris wheel and all. The two sponsors of this festival produce the Carnival for the purpose of raising funds to purchase food parcels for needy children abroad. Each organization on campus builds and operates some type of booth or game, typical of those found in any carnival, con- tests are waged, stunts staged ,and various antics entered into. Following the afternoon's activities, stu- dents congregate about the steps of our admin- istration building where a number of humorous skits are produced by members of the various clubs. This bit of stage endeavor is followed by a block dance on Amaron Street which is the culminating event of the entire program. The coming of spring heralds its approach, the day of fun, lrolic and fanfare is eagerly anticipated by both students and faculty and thoroughly enjoyed in every respect. Here are lzimdreds of happy faces zvatclzirzg the antics of the vaude- ville progmnz. How about you? Are you there?

Dr. Miller spoke from the front of Adams Hall to an assembly of approximately 325 students, pointing out to them the advantages they were to enjoy in the college's recent acquisition of Reed Estate and a new modern library. The welcome address was followed by a talk on college activities, both academic and extra-curricular, in which Admiral John F. Hines, Assistant to the President, emphasized the value and importance of student par- ticipation in activities over and beyond the academic. Speaking next was Dean Richard S. Ullery concerning the marking system of the college, and reassuring the freshmen that the adjustment from high school to col- lege level would be gradual rather than radical. The remaining speakers on the agenda included Miss Henrietta Littlefield, Director of Student Activities, with a brief outline of the activities and functions of her office, Mr. Henry Butova, Athletic Director, who pre- sented a picture of our athletic accomplishments and possibilities to the sports-minded hopefuls in his audi- enceg and Joseph Quinlan, President of the Student Association, who outlined in brief the opportunities offered girls in athletics. joe spoke on behalf of the absent Director of Women's Athletics, Miss Jerry Drew. Following the addresses, motion pictures were shown in Lee Hall and then the group was given a hot dog roast on campus. Later in the evening an informal get- together was held in DAR parlors where new friend- ships were made and dancing enjoyed. On Thursday, September 22, the program continued with orientation on freshman courses and a faculty reception and tea. Culmination of -Orientation Week took place on Friday evening in the form of an All-School Mixer at the city auditorium. Jack Mahoney and his "Aces" furnished music for this affair at which freshmen have the opportunity to get acquainted with their upper classmen. . and MountainDay Mountain Day was observed in traditional style on Tuesday, October 11, as six hundred enthusiastic stu- dents motored to Look Park in Northampton to partici- pate in the various field events. AIC's Mel Gray and Jack Mahoney combine talents at the Auditorium? frosh mixer dance. The old campus ire is no more, hut on special occasions like this, the charcoal: are on for those hungry frosh. In the two feature events of the afternoon, which included two tug-o-war contests between both sexes of the sophomore-freshman classes, both sides emerged victorious. The boys' contest, which has always turned out to be the most hilarious, was won by the upper- classmen. The losers of this event were unmercifully dragged through a deep pond. Six members of the vanquished team emerged soaking wet but still full of spirit. In the other contest, which also featured a tug-o-war, this time between the girls of both classes, the situaiton reversed itself with the underdog freshman class attaining the victory. In addition to these feature contests, many other spirited games were played throughout the afternoon. Softball, football--both tackle and touch-basketball, and volleyball games were played at one time or another by athletically inclined students. The majority of participants reached the site of activities by motor car, with a capacity load also being transported by the special bus provided for the occasion. Festivities terminated at 5:00 P.M., as weary but well satished students called it a day. And here our acting president, Dr. Miller, addresses the yearlings with Miss Littlefield, Dean Ullery, Admiral Hines and Joe Quinlan behind him. x 1 Zh W If , , 1 1 uf V I A 1 f va file! 3 f u 4 mmf ,ik 51 ,, 15. .Q J gf , J QQ, Q iv ,V -M J' R . , L,1- in I' ,f I 'ii , ag- w""", uni 'S A ,ff-3' 'Kk' ' hi' is 5 W , A ,5m, 'L W' 1. 1 3 'Z 4,5 ,mx qw f v' if 29 if We , -gn 'K'v..Aj it .sham .-- 1 ,QQ l kiglj U., .,,, I Y ies.

The Prom was organized and produced in a manner typical of the ways and techniques mani- fested by members of the Class of '51 throughout the year, thus placing it in a position high on the list of successful AIC formals. Unique decorations were put up in both of the two spacious rooms and a nightclub effect was produced by placing tables around the dance floor and in adjacent rooms. Bob Halprin's Orchestra from Hartford, Con- necticut, was engaged by the committee to furnish Helen Tober and Edna Nick watch as our admirable Ad- miral crowns an admirable queen, Frances Salvi. There was no room at the Highland for a highland fling, but the dancers made a wonderful evening out of the junior Prom of the class of '5I. music for the affair. Miss Salvi, who was chosen Queen from a vast array of beautiful junior damsels as they danced past the judging box with their respective escorts, was attended by two ladies-in- waiting during the impressive ceremonies. They were the Misses Edna Nick and Helen Tober. Presi- dent Don Bruno acted as master of ceremonies and Admiral john F. Hines was called upon to honor the new queen by placing the crown upon her head. Unique favors in the form of gold bracelets were presented all escorted ladies and a door prize given to the winner drawing the lucky number. Edna Nick and Jack Farrell were Co-chairmen of the committee which worked tirelessly and diligently for the success of another '51 social event. f, Q5 "Naow looka heah young man, yo all sure wants the grand 40 cent wedding naow dont yo suh Sadie Hawkins Day Al Capp's comic strip characters from Dogpatch invaded our campus for the second consecutive year in full regalia and with complete paraphernalia for their annual Sadie Hawkins Day Race. They were all there, as personified by various students participating in the day's activities, with rifles, kick-a-poo joy-juice, lassoes and full running equipment. All eligible bachelors were as determined to elude the marriage-crazed female pursuers as the latter were to capture them. Some succeeded in out- witting and foiling all attempts of seduction and hence are still roaming the hills of Dogpatch as free men but a few were not so fortunate. Lem Scragg, for instance, who had boasted of his prowess as a free man for years, finally fell prey to the clutching mitts of one frustrated Petuney Switzfigett. Mayor McGurgle fired the opening gun that sent Lil Abner, the Scraggs, Lem VVorthle, and remaining bachelors' on a race to retain their independence. Two minutes later a second shot launched a horde of howling females in mad pursuit of their quarry, who, incidentally, had their chances of escape cut to a fraction by means of an obstacle course. A prize for the fugitive who, through some super- human effort, had driven himself ahead of all others, served as an incentive for all in the race. Prizes were also awarded to the first female making a capture. Dave Constantino was the receiver of the former award, while Jeanie Harpin walked off with the honors of catching the first victim. ...ef it WSPR's Bob jones, with Mayor McGurgle of Dogpatch, proclaiming the Sadie Hawkins' Day race as begun.

Ol' Man Mose Uim McKenna, issued his usual predictions, some of which came to pass, and Marryin' Sam fBob Maker, performed enough forty cent weddings to give him financial security for the remainder of the year. Those caught in the race are probably living a life of misery and shame but this agony is nothing compared to that felt by escaped bachelors who wait in dread anticipation for next year's race. Part of the course was through the tires-with help and hindrance from both sides. ,V ,J .,..,NN kr K W g .

Soph Hic-Hop Perhaps the most enjoyable of all dances throughout the year was the Sophomore Hic-Hop at which both students and faculty cast aside academic worries to take part in its rustic activities. This year the dance was held at Court- ney's Barn in Somers, Connecticut, where the location itself provided an appropriate setting for its festivities. A prominent orch- estra of that vicinity provided squares, fox trots and polkas for hicky couples present, and refreshments, consisting of doughnuts and cider, were served throughout the evening. A prize was awarded the hickiest looking couple, the honor going to Mary Stewart and her escort for best portraying the man and woman down on the farm. This dance is a traditional Sophomore- sponsored affairg each year it is organized and produced by soph students, thus add- ing variety and freshness to each succeeding dance.

Early in 1948 the Yellow jacket proclaimed the trustees' OK for a 3225,000. library. In the spring, ground was broken and contsruction begun. All through the summer months classes were distracted, with every- one's interest upon the masons and bricklayers and carpenters. Through the winter and during a long and hectic steamhtters' strike, the interiors were completed. On March 18, 1949, under the direction of librarian Eulin K. Hobbie, over two hundred volunteers carried books from the old, crowded and inadequate Adams Hall to the stacks of our new Chester Stowe McG0wn Memorial Library. ln three hours that snowy morning the long months of construction suddenly came to an end. 15,ooo volumes were moved into the open stacks. Room for 45,000 more volumes remained, with new acquisitions constantly being announced. Admiration was open-mouthed when students first saw, the following Monday, the large reading rooms, the newspaper tables, the coatroom and offices, the brand new phonograph record collection, the Recordak machine for the New York Times on microfilm, the sound-proofed typing room, and the stacks and stacks of books. The number of library magazine subscrip- tions had been increased by Mrs. Hobbie from 10 to 200, and plenty of space was allowed for them in their new quarters! So we entered and studied, and sat by open windows during the warm spring, missing perhaps, the old, familiar, book-filled study tables and the memories at- tached to the long hours spent in the old library. But new attachments were soon to be made, and the new library was made not only a central and important part of the campus, but, too, a part of our hearts. iiiii 1 1...-.-.13 -f ' H . ,,- as : .... , n v E 5 222 : Hlln HHH -- 2' - .Zu .ii JZ, fs -1 "W-'Un' ll- is ti.: -' ' ll X 1 :EEF Hlllllllll .

V x Louis E. jallade, New York architect, designed for AIC the library that the Ley Construction Co. of Springfield built last year facing Stryker Hall on Amaron Street. Late in 1948 Professor Gilman A. Randall advised Mrs. Hobbie in the formation of a basic record col- lection for AIC. Much has since been added, with only half the collection showing here in the open case. or .5 if Dave Bertrand examines one of the atlases in t map collection.

Near the card catalogs are the reference books and the special file which Mrs. Hobbie began and now maintains, covering much of AIC's past history and its present-day news events. The carrels throughout the library are con venient for individual, undisturbed study. Here in the cataloging room, janet Sharp and the library"s friendly, helpful, Sfflg do most of their work. Even with their modern aids, it takes quite some time to fully process each new book that the library acquires. With only one-quarter of the shelf space occupied, vast room for expansion is allowed. All titles now are easily located at eye level throughout the building. Besides the Springheld papers, the New York Times, the New York Herald-Tribune, the Wall Street jour- nal, and the Christian Science Monitor are received daily at the library and fled for three months. The Times is also kept on 77Zl'CTOnl7l7, with many valuable books and hrs! editions. Reed Hall The first week of 1949 students returned from the Christmas vacation wondering just exactly where the newly-announced estate that AIC had purchased was located. To most, the existence of a 36-acre campus only a minute's walk down Maynard Street was an unknown fact. But with a little investigation, students found the beautiful campus known as the Reed Estate. Besides a 25-room mansion, the college now had several cottages and homes in the area, two green- houses, and property with room not only for three playing fields for the expanding athletic department, but a hilly, wooded campus for resident students and for outdoor relaxation. A S75o,ooo program to build up the necessary Helds and bleachers and to obtain expensive athletic equipment was immediately begun and at this writing was well under way. Another year or two and AIC's athletic campus will be for many the center of their school activities. Already, dances have been held at Reed Hall, and the Reed Hall-oween Dance an institution in the annual student program. Here are roommates Trespacz fat workj and Manitsas fasleepj taken at the same hour in the morning. Here's the gang soon to break into song on one of a note-book full of melodies. Between eleven and one at night the parlor is full of busy students, but during the rest of the day- well, you must know dorm life. 99 Looking down the green- house toward part of the gardens around Reed Hall.

The Inter-Sorority Council put on a dance january 12th and planned in the spring another series of lectures similar to those given every year. The 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 representatives from each fraternity and sorority, and the chairmanship of each group is held on a rotating basis. MEMBERS Members this year in the Inter-Sorority Council were: Karyl Shaw, chairman, Frances Salvi, Masa Aiba, Irene Baronian, Evelyn Joyner, Betty Topham, Ann Topham, Stella Olsewzski, Josephine Bruno, Joan Steinberg and Marlene Ungar. Inter-Fraternity members this year were: William Spears, Eugene Golash, Robert Hogg, Mark Feinberg, joseph Strain, james Hall, Waldrow Finnegan, Lionel 102 Adelson, james McKenna and Walter Lynch. rf' Alpha Iota Gamma Members of Alpha Iota Gamma, in addition to num- erous other activities, grant a scholarship to some eligible girl who meets the qualifications laid down by the sorority. Meetings are held each month in the homes of various members and matters taken up pertaining to the functions of the sorority which deal primarily with furthering good- will on campus and increasing recreational facilities for students. Among the many activities engaged in and sponsored by the Gamma Girls include their annual Rush Party, a Tea for prospective members, a stocking foot dance, hay- ride, senior banquet, co-sponsorship of the Spring Carnival, and final picnic.

Mrs. Robinson, Mrs. L'Amoureux Alpha Phi Omega With a little push from the chapter at Springfield College, AIC last spring joined with many other campuses across the country in establishing a chapter of the National Boy Scout Service Fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega. It operated an information booth at the annual Spring Carnival, securing a good group of members and beginning a fine program of service both to the campus and to the community. The frat took magazines to the Shriner's Hospital and also held Boy Scout meetings there. Its help, too, in soliciting blood donors on campus during the Thursday Red Cross drives was a great community service. At the beginning of the drives it publicized A1C's poor score in blood dona- tions with the infamous headline appearing throughout the YI sequence beginning on page 78!

Last year the fraternity attained a new apogee in its existence when it was incorporated as a legal entity. Outstanding functions of this past year in- cluded a semi-formal alumni spring dance, the annual formal initiation banquet, a Christmas party, and the annual post-graduation beach party. A spirit of better cooperation and brotherhood will continue to be manifested by members of ASD so that the fulfillment of its original purpose, plus an enlarged and more complete agenda of social activities, might be realized for the benefit of its members and for the college as a whole. Alpha Upsilon The smallest sorority on campus has dwindled to only a few undergraduate members, but its activity remains vital among the alumni. Irene Baronian, President, has worked this year with Evelyn Joyner and janet Heaton to maintain the ideals and functions of the sororityg and Esther Frary, advisor to the group, has shared with Polly Clemmer, President of the graduate sorority mem- bers, the responsibility of keeping them together in spirit and often in company at teas and banquets. 106 Delta Sigma Psi One of the most active sororities on campus is Delta Sigma Psi, a group of girls who attempt to participate in all community affairs with the intention of fostering better social activities among all stu- dents as well as its members. Incited by these principles, members of Delta Sigma Psi pro- moted an extensive social program including numerous activities which included a rushing period, tea, and induction banquet of its new membersg a dance, held at Wright House, terminating Mountain Day festivities, co-sponsorship of an inter-sorority semi-formal dance, sponsorship of a scholarship fund, awarded to the girl best qualifiedg an annual dinner danccg a Christmas party given in conjunction with its brother fraternity, Alpha Sigma Deltag and other social activities which included the handling of a Brownie group.

With these words on their lips and a true fraternal spirit in their hearts, the mem- bers of Phi Delta Mu Fraternity have continued to exemplify leadership, brotherhood, initiative' and progress among the campus fraternities as well as among themselves. The 1940-45 period of cataclysmic developments forced a curtailment on Delta Mu's activities but since the termination of that monstrous conflict its members have renewed operations upon a major scale. The spirit, although abated somewhat, had not died in time of duress. Now, with a new year approaching, a year that promises increased membership and more opportunity, efforts are being expended for a house, one of the fraternity's assets that were lost during the war. Among the many social events promoted by its members during the academic year are the initiation banquet, semi-formal ball for newly inducted pledgees, summer get-to-gether picnic, Inter-fraternity formal dance, and sponsorship of the "Beat Springfield" pins.

Wells IOB Pi Alpha Nu The Pi Alpha Nu Fraternity was organized for the purposes of promoting a demo- cratic fraternal association among its members, encouraging and instilling the greatest degree of college spirit, and, in general, promoting the welfare of American International College through intellectual and cultural association. In keeping with its objectives, Pi Alpha Nu in its 1949-1950 pledging period rendered valuable service to local organizations by performing various tasks at the Shriner's Hospital, Community Chest, Salvation Army, and the Boy's Club. The fraternity was active throughout the school year, commencing its activity with the annual pledgee smoker in November. Among other activities were the unique pledge period, the initiation banquet, the participation in various campus activities, and the major social event, the Installation Banquet. Outstanding performances by members of Pi Alpha Nu included the recognition of three in Who's Who in .American Colleges and Universities and the large proportion of members elected to the honorary society, Alpha Chi. The officers of the fraternity are: president, Eugene St. Marting vice-president, Louis Miller, recording secretary, Herbert Ellingwoodg corresponding secretary, Leonard Morseg treasurer, Stanley Rettieg and S.A. representative, Samuel Giansante. 109 Sigma Alpha Phi Sigma Alpha Phi, the oldest and first incorporated fraternity at AIC, chalked up another full year of activity as the brothers continued to set the pace of fraternal life at the college. At the "red house on Mapledell St." social and academic life found a new setting in the redecorated home and a houseful of new furniture. Pledging, which doubled the number of brothers in Sigma Alpha Phi, led off the year's activities. The annual Symposium and publication of the journal continued to foster and express the founders' theme, "appreciation of science, art, and philosophy." Sigma Alpha Phi's social calendar was highlighted by numerous dances, the pledgee smoker, joint meetings with the alumni, and induction and installation banquets. The fraternity also fielded teams in all intra-mural sports. In addition, the brothers held closed weekly meetings at the house, forming the real basis for fraternal life and the true spirit of brotherhood. President was Hank Zollag vice-president, Herb Perry, Secretary, Don Diesog Fran Conti, treasurerg S. A. representative, Bill Howardg Inter-fraternity council representa- tives, Mark Feinberg and Bob Hoggg house manager, Norm Staatsg social chairman, Bill Pellandg and sargeant-at-arms, john Nash. 110 Sigma Lambda Kappa In a year marked with many activities, the Sigma Lambda Kappa Sorority put into practice its primary objectives:- to create, foster, and appreciate cultureg and to afford its members a more abundant life through its activities in the social world. Included in the busy year were a Halloween masked dance, a well-attended swim- ming party, a theater party, the annual Spring picnic, a banquet for senior girls of the sorority, a Christmas party, and a sleigh ride. The girls, members of the oldest sorority on campus, also were honored at a party given by their brother fraternity, Sigma Alpha Phi. In keeping with a standing policy of the sorority, a scholarship was awarded to a worthy undergraduate outside of the sorority. Sigma Lambda Kappa also had the distinction of having a full-page rotogravure pictorial review in the Springfield Sunday Republican in honor of their sixteenth anniversary. Officers of Sigma Lambda Kappa include Stella Olzewski, presidentg june Eken- gren, vice-presidentg Donalda Methven, secretaryg Mildred Cherichetti, treasurerg and the Tophams, Helen and Anne, S.A. Representatives. The advisors are Mrs. Helen Randall and Miss Barbara Drew. 111 Zeta Chi Zeta Chi, originally organized by a group of young energetic students who shared like desires for a fuller, more productive school and social life, is one of the oldest and most active of the campus fraternities. The initial outstanding achievement of Zeta Chi was the organization of the Yellow jacket, the oflicial newspaper of AIC. Originally, the Yellow jacket was published entirely by Zeta Chi men. However, the Administration soon recognized this enterprise as being very valuable to the school, and adopted the Yellow jacket as the official AIC news publication. At this date, Zeta Chi is incorporated and has its own "frat" house on Westford Avenue, just a few minutes walk from the AIC campus. It continues promoting an active social calendar throughout the school year. The first event of the year is the annual 'smoker", at which time prospective candidates for membership are introduced to the active members of the chapter. Following this are a host of notable affairs, including the formal induction banquet and the popular New Year's Eve party. During the vernal season, the men of Zeta Chi display themselves and their chosen in their best finery at the annual Spring Formal. In the same season, -the boys go outdoors for their Annual Fraternity Picnic, consistently well-received by the members. To keep the "frat" a cohesive unit and to foster continued fraternal feeling, the Zeta Chi house is the scene of many informal gatherings throughout the year. Besides the regular meetings, numerous "stags" are held for the mutual enjoyment of the members. The weekly Saturday-night parties, at which time the members and their guests "roll back the rugs" and dance to records, are another source for entertainment. An annual Christ- mas Party is alsoiconducted by Zeta Chi, replete with harmonious decorations and a con- genial Yuletide atmosphere. A Fathers' and Mothers' Day is another occasion sponsored by Zeta Chi, giving the opportunity for introductions to be exchanged between the members and the parents. One of the most energetic enterprises ever undertaken by any of the campus organizations is that of Zeta Chi, who is responsible for the variety show presented in April at the Springfield Trade School auditorium. The proceeds of the Aces' Capers went towards a scholarship fund and to the Zeta Chi house fund. Winter Carnival Since 1937 the Winter Carnival has been a mem- orable occasion at AIC. VVith each passing year the various committees have constantly striven to better the accomplishments of their predecessors. Under the guidance of chairman Lloyd Piccin, the 1950 Carnival proved to be an outstanding success and undoubtedly established a new goal towards which future Carnival committees will aspire. As in the past, the Coronation Ball was the out- standing event of the Carnival-the highlight of the Ball being the coronation of the king and queen. Elected by the student body in pre-carnival balloting were Miss Irene Kaczanowicz of Northampton, Massa- chusetts and Patsy Piscopo of Yvaterbury, Connecticut. Their majesties, chosen on tl1e basis of looks, popu- larity, a11d personality, were, indeed, truly representa- tive of the qualifications. Freddie Sateriale from Boston provided the very excellent music for the Ball which took place at the Highland Hotel. The success of the affair was notice- able in that the entire crowd of over 200 couples remained until the last note became but an echo. The preceding day, Thursday the 23rd, had marked the opening of the Carnival. In the afternoon a Sports Day was held at the Springfield Country Club. The committee, under the able leadership of Brad Prince, provided excellent entertainment both indoors and out. The weatherman cooperated early in the week, after a warm and grassy winter, by furnishing plenty of snow and wintery weather, skiing and snow-balling were in order. That evening marked the presentation of the popular comedy "john Loves Mary" by the Garret Players. Directed by John Gaffney, Jr. and featuring Phyllis Ann Tatt and Francis Rapalus in the starring roles, there was continuous laughter from the A audience reflecting the audience's appreciation of and delight in the fine production. On the afternoon of the day following the Coro- nation Ball the scene shifted to the Sheraton Hotel where the king and queen were hosts at a tea dance, another traditional carnival event. Ted Lockwood of local fame provided danceable music and much wit and everyone went away feeling that the dance was very much a success. "Co-chairwomen" Roz Stein and Lyn Tresenfeld were in charge of arrangements for the dance. The final event of the Carnival took place on the evening of the 25th at the Tech High gym where a basketball jamhoree was held. In the preliminary game the girl's basketball squad coached by jerry Drew met their first defeat of the season at the hands of a professional team of girls from Pittsfield who were, incidentally, undefeated in three years of competition. Although on the losing end the Acettes demonstrated fighting hearts against superior odds and made a contest of it all the way, losing by 42-37. Yes, and sixteen of those points were made by the Carnival's own Queen Irene. The feature game of the evening pitted the var- sity squad against an alumni team composed of such former greats Kosior, Hart, Moriarty, the Macklers, Allen, Kuczinski, Borazna, Ocksin, Hanna, and Beau- doin, but the Varsity had little difhculty in winning 81-55. Betwee11 the halves of the main game, the faculty five and the varsity club five put on a highly entertain- ing bit of comedy basketball which gave the fans many a chuckle. This, then, was AIC's 1950 Winter Carnival. The pictures that follow we hope bring some remembrance to those who participated, for it was to everyone a weekend long to be remen1bered. Chairman Lloyd Piccin skies down a snow-covered slope, a month after announcing that he'd go to the Carnival in a bathing suit if snow didn't show up for the event. One of the biggest Sports Day turnouts in many Carnival years-the result of two happy February snowfalls after a long dry winter. The Spring- field Country Club was host to skiers, card sharks and dancers the afternoon of the 23rd. Down the snowy slopes in Agawam go two ski enthusiasts who make sports day what it is. Wally Bull shuffles the deck while others chatter at the Springfield Country Club, cen- ter of the sports day activity. AIC's Tula Geanacopoulus sings for Ted Lockwood's jok- ing'in-the-halves band at the Tea Dance Saturday at the Sheraton. 114 And here is Freddie Sateriale who trekked from Boston with his sweetly-playing orchestra for the grand Coronation Ball on February 24th. H5 Here they all are, left to right: "General Biddle" Anderson, "Fred" Gaffney, "Lt. Victor O'Leary" Bryan, "Lily" Fillion, "Red Cross volunteer" Lavigne, Phyllis Ann Tatt and Francis Rapalus as Mary and John, "Oscar" Bernstein, and "Sena- tor" Maker with his wife, played by Betty Delewicz. John Loves Mary-but much to the con- sternation of her parents. This scene was pretty hard to explain to the Senator and his wife when they burst in upon Phyllis and Francis, stars in the show. Acting president John Homer Miller crowns King Pat and Queen Irene as the Royal Couple of AIC's 1950 Winter Car- nival. Serving in their court were twenty- eight pretenders-to-the-throne, who enter- ed in procession at the regal coronation. One of the important committees on campus is the group that works toward each Winter Carnival. Head- man Lloyd Piccin is shown here with committee-chairmen Jerry Radding, Bill Vassar, George Martel, Brad Prince, Frank Wotton, Rod Henry, Lyn Tresenleld, advisor Dr. Gad- aire, joan Steinberg and Marcia Cookish. King Pat and Queen Irene-as if they wouldn't remember-receive the placques that acclaim their royal stature and remind them forever of the coronation year, 1950. This picture just don't make sense. How these people could play a game of basketball in pajamas, rags, business suits, hockey uniforms, and football padding is beyond the edi- tors, but they wanted their picture taken-here it is. Dancing at the Coronation Ball were over 200 happy couples be- neath the parachutes that lightly draped the ballroom. ! l 1 Led by energetic and gracious Henrietta Littlefield, the Deutscher Vercin endeavors to stimulate an active interest in developing simple conversational ability on the part of its members in the singing of German folkhsongs and informal discussions of important periods and personalities in the cultural history of Germany. During the past year, the Deutscher Verein, with the support of the two honor societies, Alpha Chi and Phi Sigma Phi. sponsored a celebration of the bi-centennial birth year of Germany's most famous poet, -Iohann Wolfgang Goethe. Oflicers are: Douglas Roberts, president: Thomas l'Vilkinson, vice-presidentg Mary Kalmbach, secretaryg Raymond Donahue, treasurerg Louise Bradley, SA. Representative, and Miss Henrietta Littlefield, faculty advisor. "While strolling through the park one da-a-ay, 'twas in the merry month of Ma-a-ay . . ." Last year, late one warm, spring afternoon, we were studying .by an open window in the clean, new library when a group of mellow voices in "good, close harmony" told us the Choral Club was in action and book-learnin' couldn't interfere with our listening. fMiss Littlefield had the same pleasant trouble' with the Band during her late-afternoon German classeslj The concert ended, but the music was still there. And through the year, President Danny George, under the direction of Mr. l'Varren Amerrnan, and the instrumental assistance of Laurence Buddington, kept the club before us. A Christmas carol-sing was held at Hope Church, and on Class Day and Awards Night concerts were planned. Q S hwy rg, Deutscher Verein Choral Club 117 Psychology Club The Psychology Club maintained an active pro- gram this year with four of its olhcers in the graduating class. Larry Finch, president, was helped by Dr. Wells' four-year assistant, smilin' Ray Kas- keski, and fellow Freudian Glendora Folsom. The lab rats whose nest was in the basement of Mallory Hall, this year spread also to the second floor, with ollices and classrooms very handy. The lah was home, too, for Ma Spoerl's hamsters, and when students were away 'twas she who fed and cared for them. Exciting held trips were made to Northampton and Monson State Hospital as the usual means to first-hand case study and an insight into modern care methods. This year the itinerary was length- ened to include many more institutions. Visits were made to Dartmouth College, Middletown State Hos- pital, the Yale Child Clinic, and Belchertown. Regu- lar trips were taken to the Buckingham Child Guid- ance and to Leeds Veterans' Hospital. One memorable meeting was held at the invita- tion of Mr. Beverley Magee in his new home in Agawam. Here Dr. Winetrout spoke on general semantics and the "structural differential", with avid discussion and good conversation following. Quite as much a social event, the meeting ended with refreshments and the playing of fnaturallyj some psychological parlor games. Radio Workshop Having entered its third year of formal radio broadcasting, the Radio Workshop strived even further this year to present interesting scripts of all types: drama, historical, comedy, and fantasy. It also attempted to promote greater interest in this type of work with classes conducted by Mrs. WVayne C. Latham, Program Director and Manager of Station WSPR, over which the Workshop broadcasts. Under the direction of jack Gaffney, the group began weekly half-hour shows in November. XVith much of their own musical and sound effects equipment, these performances, in many respects, re- sembled professional programs. Prior to college vacations the Work- shop's own technical staff would sound-record the show so that while the program schedule remained unbroken, the student-actors enjoyed a "week off". Considering that the group lacks the normal equipment and radio studio found in many colleges, the average student might well feel proud of the Radio Workshop. It is an organization of both talent and spirit. H9 The Garret Players Perhaps finding a home fthe garret of Lee Hallj served as an inspiration for the popular Garret Players, but whatever it was, AIC has not been represented by as good a theatrical group as the Garret Players in many years. They consistently present first-class plays which are just as unfailingly well- received by their audience. First of the productions presented by the Garret Players was George Washington Slept Here. The Players received wide acclaim for their splendid work, and they left the observers watching for future exhibitions on the part of the dramatists. As their part of the Winter Carnival, the Thespians presented john Loves Mary, which proved to be another milestone on the road to their lasting popularity and prominence on the AIC campus. Further addi- tions to the crowded schedule of the Players were the May Spring Play and the annual Spring Carnival skit, both of which manifested the high type of acting and directorship which typify the Garret Player productions. The Garret Players do not, however, con- fine their activities to the AIC campus. ln accordance with the community spirit of the College, the dramatists initiated what will be an annual affair for the Players. This is in the form of an annual stage production with the veterans at Leeds Hospital at Northampton. .J,f1,tf-J' ' 1 , t fb if y ff , U! rt- , - ' 1 , fwb,.+ fl .

Also wanted was some kind of orientation in social work and the active social agencies, and a knowledge of their workings. Eleanor Anderson, as president, started the year's program with Ed Jones of the Springfield Taxpayers Association speaking on Plan D and our comn1unity's municipal government, an issue vital to Springfield last November. Mr. Alexander Mapp, executive secretary of the Dunbar Com- munity League, spoke on race relations later in the semester. An interesting question period followed the meeting. Christmas saw an enthusiastic bunch of kids drop their texts and help to bring a new spirit on campus with popcorn and cran- berry decorations and plenty of pine-smelling evergreens. The new semester held many plans for panel debates and lectures on social problems and the social effects on science, economics, psy- chology and all the other facets of social life. l2l I l Interfaith Fellowship Of all the active organizations on campus, one is the Interfaith Fellowship. Thanksgiving week it pre- sented one of the most beautiful services to be shared on campus in many years, a moving experience of prayer and song and the thoughtfulness of Dr. WVhitelaw's talk. Christmas time and in February's Brotherhood Week observances Interfaith was also active. At the evening meeting on February ioth, the feelings and beliefs of Donald Cohen, Prescott Grout, Bill Nelson, and Larry Finch were expressed in "What My Faith Means to Me", a truly fine student program. The Pioneer Valley Intercollegiate Council, with its Rabbit Hollow project and college programs, was important also in the activities of Interfaith. Penny Baker was president this year, with Ed Arman, vice-president: Beverly Royce and Toni Papaioanou, secretariesg and Richard Dickinson, treasurer. C.A.F.F. This is probably the last year that CAFF will remain a separate organization, for it has this year operated mainly as a committee in Interfaith. It's many past performances, in international charity, mark it as a worthy group, still anxious to serve. Dr. Huganair has been secretary-treasurer, though not here in the picture with Penny Baker, Josephine Giorgi, and Eleanor Anderson. Art League Though not quite as active as in its first year, the Art League, under the enthusiastic leadership of Morgan Levine, presented three great exhibits on campus in its own gallery at Wright House. In November, artists from Block House of Boston demonstrated the designing of linoleum cuts and hand block printing of fabrics at an evening meeting in VVrigl1t House. An exhibit of their work remained in the gallery for some time, with great interest shown by the students. Then, in December, there opened a Hne exhibition of fifteen photographs by Bill Brandt of London. Notes on Brandt and his methods and a comment by Edward Steichen appeared with the pictures. Morgan's leaving school left the League without the capable and energetic management he gave it, but with continued interest on the part of some students, a program was main- tained throughout the year. In the spring, an exhibit of modern French prints from the collection of Abraham Kam- berg was shown in the XVright House galleries. The collection included original woodcuts, iithographs, and etchings by Picasso, Roualt, Matisse and many others. Student interest and school pride in such an exhibition was, of course, manifested. ,Q i'f, k ,335 ,,, he oA ybc ,gi L s if 'tg f . ,., m Arcus Biologicae One of the largest clubs on campus is the Biology Circle, or Arms Biologicne. Inspired by Doc Gadaire's Natural Science course, freshmen flock to the Lee Hall lab to study and gag with the upper- classmen, the pre-meds, and the science profs. Senior Bill Spears, as president, sparks the active program with guest speakers, biology Elms, Held trips and Tuberculosis X-Ray services as part of the Hampden County T-B Association program. This year the annual tea was held again at the Museum of Natural History, under the direction of Mr. Otis here in Springfield. A field trip to New York City was also made one Sunday in March to see the Museum of Natural History there. John Kennedy was vice-president this yearg Pat Jewel, secretaryg Daniel George, treasurerg and Leonard Morse, Student Association representative. 124 Business Club The Business Club was organized primarily to offer an opportunity for business students to become acquainted with the business world. The operation of the practical end of various business enterprises are observed by members during the many held trips conducted by the Club. These field trips in- cluded diversified types of industries and businesses, including the Mass. Mutual Insurance Co., Westing- house Electric and Manufacturing Co., the Spring- field Telephone Co., the Springfield Daily News, and the G. Fox store in Hartford, Conn. A three-day field trip was also conducted to New York where the organization and management of many business en- terprises, including the New York Stock Exchange, Macy's, and the New York Times, were studied by the students. During the year, the Business Club also sponsored a series of lectures by men prominent in the indus- trial world. lndustrial psychologists, labor union leaders, accountants, and personnel managers all presented their viewpoints in these interesting and timely lectures. By presenting a program of such caliber, the members of the Business Club are made aware of existing job opportunities, both at the present and in the future, how best to prepare for their chosen field, and how to advance, once a position has been procured. The social calendar of the Business Club also is an active one. Dances, including exchange dances with other schools, a club picnic, and intramural sports form the appealing agenda. OFFICERS Frank H.

S A Representative l THE WALTER Rice Debate Council The close of another active year for the Walter Rice Debate Council found many of its members among tl1e 1950 graduating class, including President George Routsis, Model Congress Chairman Rod Henry, Radio Chairman Sam Giansante, and star spokesman for the affirmative, Pat Moriarty. The year began with a 41-college conference at the University of Vermont, then delegates were sent to the winter conferences at Tufts and Wesleyan, and during March to Rhode Island State and Brooklyn College. The standard topic this season concerned nationalization in the United States of "all basic non-agricultural industries," and anywhere a debate team might go, one would find discussed and evaluated the needs and requirements of the tangled collective experience we call modern economic society. The debating spirit not only alerts a person to the many world problems around us, but quickens the mind and sharpens the tongue as we face those problems. During spring vacation the Debate Council sponsors and runs the annual New England Model Congress, held here at AIC, with repre- sentatives attending from over 25 high schools in Massachusetts and Connecticut, making closer the ties between AIC and the community which it serves. john Hickey served this year as Chairman of Intramurals and Sophie Ann Bonk, secretary. Other members were Alan Anderson, Leonard Blum, Dick Duval, Richard Henchey, Alex Martin, Nathan Miller, Howard Paine, Harold Palmer, Avrom Siegel, Bill Stilwell, Al Wakstein, and Gerald Washburn. 126 International Relations Club The International Relations Club has long been an important part of extra- curricular activity on AIC's campus. 1950 saw a little smaller membership but just as busy a program. A plaque was set in the students' Stryker Hall this year by IRC, with name-plates for the student who did the most to "promote" international understanding on campus. Irving Slade was honored in 1948 and Harlan Leighton in 1949. Led by olhcers Dave Anderson, Avrom Siegal, Violet Dulchinos, and George Routsis, the club participated in the Regional Conference of New England International Relation Clubs at the University of New Hampshire. Delegates also attended the World Fed- eralists Conference at Harvard last winter, and later the IRC meetings at New London's Connecticut State College for Women. Professor Mitchell, as faculty advisor, helped the club in its program and duties. l27 Dr. john R. Hobbie Physics Club Among the many new clubs formed this year is one to be found meeting down in the Physics lab in DAR Hall. The Physics Club, with Dr. Hobbie as advisor, is a closely-knit group of fifteen students whose real interest in the physical sciences keeps them together when classes are done and textbooks closed. Planned during its first year was a series of lec- tures and specialized movies, with a field trip to Wesleyan University. About twenty drove down in December to view the physics labs and discuss com- mon problems at the University. The club's organi- zation this year proved valuable to physics students. An excellent demonstration lecture by Dr. Hobbie and later lectures by McAlpine of University of Mass., and O'Harron of Our Lady of Elms College, examined and explained many new ideas. The wave theory of electricity and light and sound was studied, and atomic energy films shown. A May banquet was planned for year's end by the club officers, Bob Black, presidentg Harry Con- stantinos, vice-presidentg joseph Boudreau, secre- taryg and treasurer, Len Horton. Math Club Posters announcing lectures such as, "Finite Induction and its Applications," "Lies, Dirty Lies and Statistics," and "Rings and Ideals," sponsored by the Math Club have decorated the Lee Hall bulletin boards with an air of abstract mystery, and we appreciate the fact that only a vitally interested group would stick out lectures of such technical and statistical verbiage. A world of knowledge and study, in the language of number, is opened when the speaker is finished and discussion begins, and it makes us wonder what we're missing in not knowing better the language of mathematics. The talks were partly on the graduate level and partly undergraduate, but all understandable because of their interest and enthusiastic presentation. Honorary members include Mrs. Alice Robinson and Mr. Gilman R. Randall, math fiends along with Advisor Harold E. Bowie. Karekin Agazerian is presidentg Robert Black, vicefpresidentg Donalda Methven, secretaryg and Alexander Hutton, treasurer. 129 Chemistry Club AMERICAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY AFFILIATES The student and faculty affiliates of the American Chemical Society have joined together at AIC in an attempt to form a Chemistry Club for interested students. Its purpose is to become recognized as a student chapter of the A.C.S. and as a chartered group be able to better serve the chemistry majors in their interests. Dr. Chapin of Monsanto, industrial advisor to the group, gave a talk soon after its organization on the history and functions of the Chemical Society. The SoCiety's Regional Meeting, held at Trinity College in Hart- ford, was attended by Dr. Davis, faculty advisor, with several club members accompanying him. Dick Courtney is president of the club: Bob Sheehan, vice-presi- dentg jack Bresky, treasurer: and Bill Vaughan, secretary. 130 The Literary Club The Literary Club for the men of letters on campus, has again presented its annual series of lectures for interested students. Men from different literary Helds have shown the universality of the language media through their own special emphasis. A professor, and advisor to the club, our own Dr. Holt, spoke first on Charles Dickens, with readings from the Pickwick Papers. A clergyman, Dr. Malcolm Matheson of First Congregational Church in West Springfield, lectured on 'The Bible as Good Literature." A publisher, Mr. Lew Morse, spoke early in the year on the prac- tices and problems of "getting into print" the writer's manuscript. A crime reporter from the Springfield Newspapers, Mr. Will Crow- ley, was one of the last to speak during the year's program. The annual literary contest, closing April 6th, was again sponsored by the Club, led this year by jim McKenna, president, and Francis Sullivan, secretary. 131 Sports Club Two years ago a small group of students, mostly Frosh and Sopho- mores, decided that what was needed on our campus was a club for all those students who could not enter varsity athletics but who. desired to engage in the "doin's" at AIC. From this grew the present Sports Club, recently oflicially accepted by the Student Association. Over this short space of time these social-minded students have held house parties, toboggan parties, bowling and swimming meets, dances, and a banquet at the Red Barn. Beach parties and mountain climbing have also been planned by the group. The officers have been Bob Hogg, president, Norm LeBlanc, vice- president: George Eisner, social chairmang Philippa Dyba and Mary Kalmback, secretaries: and Ray johnson, treasurer. 132 DAR Dormitory Council A student governing council, or- ganized two years ago, has success- fully functioned to the satisfaction of the majority residing in DAR Hall. Each class elects representa- tives to the council, whose duty it is to uphold and enforce the provisions of the dormitory gov- ernment. In addition to dealing out jus- tice and punishment to innocent and guilty alike, the council also sponsors various social activities throughout the year. Some of these include an annual inter-dormitory party at the beginning of each year for the purpose of establishing amiable relations between members of both dorms, a Christmas party in DAR parlors, Open House at the girls' home during which all visitors are taken for a brief tour of all floors, freshman initiation, including a hazing program through which all new residents of DAR must successfully pass, and num- erous pajama parties given periodi- cally throughout the year. f D A 51,4-ISHS HCHQMITONY The following members served on the DAR Dormitory Council during the 1949-'50 academic year: Estelle August, Beverly Burlow, Goldie Cohen, Laverna Cohen, Bernice Flerninger, Viola J. Fraser, Lola Kamaros, Marion Katz, Cath- erine Shaylor, Rosalind Stein, Ron- nie Stepanian, and Toby Weinstein. OFFICERS President ........,..,...... Beverly Burlow Vice-president ......

For AIC, a broadening contact is made with other schools: problems are shared and activities discussed. The whole school is a member of NSA, with students acting both as representatives of AIC in the national organization and as representatives of NSA on our own campus. For the students, NSA is not a union which they must join, nor is it a governing Student Association above our own. It means to them a kind of federation of campus SA's, an organization that might pool the efforts, the finances, and the ideas of hundreds of colleges, in order to study and compare their student problems and to offer solutions and advice. This year NSA's program included, ij international student exchange through the work-travel-study abroad program, 2j student economy through the purchase card dis- count system, 35 studies upon educational rights and privileges both for faculty and students, and, 4j cultural, intellectual, and extra-curricular helps for the student, the campus, or the region. Representatives to the Second National Congress at the University of Illinois in Urbana were seniors joseph P. Quinlan and Howard E. Paine. Their work was con- tinued this semester by Nathan Miller heading an able committee of eight members. Red Cross Drive A co-sponsored drive for blood donations with our neighboring college featured the activities of our Red Cross Committee this year. The drive, in affiliation with a local Red Cross Chapter, was conducted over a period of two weeks to help replenish supplies in local hospitals. Appointment cards were available for all donors at the SA Office and transportation was provided by the local city chapter for all those who requested it. A quota of one hundred pints was set as a goal for which to shoot. This same amount is used each day by each hospital in Springfield: therefore, student contributions aided greatly in minimizing the cost of the plasma by increasing the supply. Other activities of this group included such charity acts as periodic visits to Leeds Veteran Hospital in Northampton where members helped entertain patients there. 136 Class of 1951 President of the class of '51 this year was Don Bruno, Vice President, Dick Medurag Treasurer, Edna Nickg and the SA representa- tives were John Farrell, James Pease, and Neil Baker. Class of 1952 The President of the class of 1952 was George LeRoyg Vice President, Frannie Burnsg Secretary, Mary Stewart, Treasurer, Irene Kac- zanowicz: and SA representatives, Bill Stillwell, Robert Maker, Alan Anderson, and Roy Duquette. Class of 1953 John Papa was President of the Freshmen class with Eugene Mulcahy, Vice Presidentg Margaret Hubbard, Secretaryg Goldie Cohen, Treasurer: Wlilliam Kent, Member-at-largeg and Harold DePianta, Allen XVakstein, and Carnie Waugh the SA representatives, When Stan Slaby stepped over into pay-dirt on a game and the Aces home debut.

Varsity Football quarterback s11eak and Angie Provenzano added the extra poi11t, AIC wound up a not too auspicious '4g season going d0Wll to defeat at the hands of the 1na11glers from Springfield College, 53-7. Looking back at the season in retrospect, it was one of hope never quite attained. Enthusiastic interest was aroused when All-Star Chip Gannon, fresh from Harvard, began his hrst season at the coaching helm. Most of the stellar performers were returning from the '48 team. Intensive late summer practice began before the team buckled down to their studies. Gannon in- fused the team with his own contagious lighting spirit which i11 turn permeated the whole student body. So the "wait till next year" cry seemed finally about to be fulfilled and most everybody had their ear cocked for any information that could be gleamed from the secret practice sessions at Reed Tract. Then came the deluge-End Dave Gleason was the first injured setting off a string of misfortunes which finally wound up with joe Bucl1l1olz getting a painful leg injury in the last minute of the Springfield contest. Those who fell to the hex of the God, Injury, were such performers as Pete Geanacopoulous, Vic Sa11tone, Bob Fleischner, Herb Escott, Herm Maniatty a11d Alex Svitenko, as well as a host of others for minor injuries tl1at meant limited service for them. Co-captains Nick Manitsas and Angie Prove11zano led tl1e team up to Waterville, Maine, for the first contest in an eight game schedule. We went ahead, 6-0, in the first minute of play on a blocked kick, a11d a subsequent TD by Provenzano. This proved to be the margin of victory as the Aces won, 6-0. The future looked cheery. In high spirits the foot- ball squad sojourned down to the Univ. of Conn. campus. The Huskies, who previously had flirted around with Yale of the Ivy League, took tl1e measure of our boys, 14-0. Angie Provenzano was the shining light in the AIC offensive that afternoon along with Bud Kneeland whose educated toe constantly booted the Aces out of trouble. Next, Arnold came up to Pynchon Park for a night approximately 3,000 fans, the Aces surprised tl1e odd- makers in an upset win over tl1e Terriers, 14-13, and revenged a loss from the year before. Vic Santone was very outstanding i11 this contest, but -this game was to be the turning point for Vic as he sustained a shoulder injury that kept him on the shelf in any aggressive active participation for the rest of tl1e season. Vtlorcester Tech subdued us in tl1e next game, 15-0. XVe fared better against St. Michael's thanks to some excellent line work by tackle Tom Burns. However, we had to be contented with a 0-0 tie which might have been different if Slaby hadn't received tl1e old "heave- ho" for apparently no reason at all. Pratt Field was the scene of some excellent passing by Bud Kneeland it1 our next game, against Wesleyan. It was to no avail, however, as the mighty Cardinals walked away with a 27-14 victory in this the first meet- ing between AIC and Wesleyan on the gridiron. Tl1e AIC gridders were a slight favorite going into tl1e game against Lowell on a special "Dads' Day" pro- gram l1eld in honor of the football players' fathers. joe Trimboli intercepted a pass in this game this sixth of tl1e yearj , and Bud Kneeland eventually pushed over tl1e gan1e's only touchdown. Provenzano again kicked the extra point to give the Aces a 7-0 win. Springfield was supposed to be tough-and they were. They started right off when they scored their first, of many, in tl1e first five minutes of play. However, though completely outclassed, the Aces fought back witl1 determination-but the Maroons were determined also and they racked up 53 points before the Aces managed to squeeze in their only TD. Thus the curtain fell 011 another Fall epic-result three wins, four de- feats and one tie. SHORTS Prospects for next year? Good! Look at the Frosh record! Bud Kneeland elected captai11 of the 1950 team. Nick Manitsas was awarded a gold watch in recognition of being chosen by his teammates as tl1e MVP of the year.

A 22agame slate was played under the guidance of Nick Rodis who took over the coaching rei11s this year. The Rodismen took tl1e Hrst game, as they did their last, but in between they found it tough sledding and managed to pick up only four more wi11s while dropping 16, to make the record 6-16. The squad seemed to be made up of either Seniors or Sophomores with five seniors and five sophomores on the roster. Seniors were Capt. Don Yvon, Bob Flagg, Bernard Sl1ea, Walt Pire and Ed jamroz. One of the highlights of this somewhat dismal campaign was tl1e lacing that our Aces gave to a Curry College combine that was bragging about its 19 wins against but 5 losses before it met the Aces. The Rodismen did a fine job on their once glorious record by rolling up a 1o8-56 score. Capt. Don Yvon was the high scorer of the season with a grand total of 306 points, only 18 short of an all-time high mark set by Ed Kosior live years ago. Yvon's second was way behind with the next man, Al Zordan, with 246 points. The only other member of the squad to break the H2O0n mark was Bob Flagg. He scored 212 poi11ts. Despite what looks lop-sided on paper the Aces were outscored by only 129 points during the entire 22-game slate or but 5.8 poi11ts per game. A total of 1,293 poi11ts were scored by the Rodismen against 1,422 by their opponents. Back row, left to right: Bob Flagg, Bernard Shea, Herb Escott, Capt. Don Yvon, George Grant, Bert Butters.

Freshman Basketball Unlike their big brothers who found it tough sledding during their campaign last Fall and Winter, the Freshman team under the direction of joe O'Grady came out on top with a 9 win, 6 loss record. This "favorable" record on the part of the Fresh- man quintet might well be an indication that better days are coming, probably slowly but still coming, for future basketball squads at the College. A favorable view is also seen in scanning over the final tabulations for the season with such records as 59.4 points per game average'against 57 for the opponents, high single game score of Q5 against opponent's high of 823 low single game score of 32 Lukasiewicz, Roger Layton Bill Kent, and Edgar Mullins against opponent's low of 40 Qthis was the only record the Frosh were outpointed injg and greatest margin of victory 40 against a greatest margin of defeat of 39. Bill Kent was the big gun for the yearlings with a record of 16.7 points per game and a total of 234 points for the season. His best night was against Northeastern when he tossed 33 points.

Jack Hurst, tl1e Aces' "hittin' pitcher" broke up the tie game with his ga111e-winning homer. Al Beaudoin, his able battery mate, also hit for the circuit in this game. The Aces then went on to win two more, Clark Zllld Arnold, before going down to defeat to our across-the-town rivals, Springfield College. An error of omission Oll the part of a Siena College infielder allowed tl1e Aces to even its season record. With the score knotted at 8-8 i11 the 13th inning, Ed Gruszka wl1o had reached base originally on a si11gle, scored when tl1e Siena first baseman rolled the ball to tl1e mound after retiring Capt. Bill Turner at first base. The first sacker was in error i11 counting because he thought there were three outs and before he re- covered "Big Ed" had scored tl1e winning ru11. jack Hurst was again the winning pitcher. Then the Aces went on to beat a powerful M.I.T. nine, and a driving Arnold College team was shut out, 6-o. Revenge came when Siena visited the City of Homes for a return with our boys, tl1e final tally being 14-IO i11 favor of tl1e New Yorkers. Two more successive wins followed, over Lowell Textile and Worcester Tech, before tl1e Aces bowed to Fort Devens Ellld Springfield. The Aces wound up their campaign with a thrilling game against Boston College before l,5O0 chilled fa11s on the wind-swept Blunt Park diamond. Although tl1e Aces outhit the boys from tl1e "Heights", 15 to 8, the four runs scored by the team fro111 Newton were enough of a margin to come out on top 7-5 i11 the last inning. Bert Gibby.

These athletically-minded students are joined in what is one of the more exclusive campus organizations due to this restriction. One of the most energetic groups at the College, the Varsity Club promotes a full social calendar featuring varied forms of entertainment. This Club can always be depended upon to give a highly entertaining skit at the annual AIC Spring Carnival, one of the highlights of the school year. Taking advantage of the facilities at Reed Hall, the Varsity Club sponsored what was a well-attended and entertaining evening, the Sports Dance. To encourage further good feeling between the sportsmen and the faculty athletic committee, the club members held a "smoker" with all the faculty athletic personnel as invited guests. The handy reference sports scrap book in the library is maintained by the Varsity Club. News coverage of all AIC athletic endeavors can be found between its covers. The outstanding freshman athlete each year receives recognition by the Club in the form of a trophy, an event eagerly awaited by every neophyte athlete.

Girls' Sports Under the direction of "jerry" Drew, Director of Women's Athletics the girls on campus enjoyed another successful year in the field of athletic endeavor. On an informal basis the girls had a full program of swimming at the Springfield Boy's Club, then last spring the AIC damsels took to the campus for many afternoons of pleasure at the art of archery. Also on the informal program the fems took an enthusiastic part in bowling, softball and field hockey. On a varsity basis this year the AIC Varsity Girls Basketball team went undefeated for their first nine games before being defeated by the Pittsfield Professional Drug team by a score of 46-38 as part of the AIC Winter Carnival program. This Pittsfield Pro team later went on to win the National A.A.U. Championship in the Midwest. Also during the season the basketball fems lost and tied a game apiece with Mount Holyoke and lost two close decisions to the Cooley- Dickinson Nurses. The Acettes wound up their season with the grand total of ll wins, 4 losses and 1 tie. In the coming year "jerry" Drew has high hopes to organize a varsity softball team to represent AIC on the diamond. With such enthusiasm as the girls displayed on the polished surface they can't help but have success with the willow on the diamond. Girls sports have come a long way in the past two years under the direction of the likeable "boss" of feminine athletes and under such leadership they are destined for greater glory in future years. 'I47 frm' 5 , O""W 5 "rt Hockey Hockey won its rightful place in sports at the College this past year as it was elevated to major sport status upon the completion of a "successful" season. This year Coach Bill Turner's pucksters entered the New England Inter-collegiate Hockey League and although they did not fare out too well in that company they did nevertheless make a name for themselves and showed that they were not to be pushed around when they came up with a 5-5 tie against Northeastern and then defeated the Univ. of Mass. skaters in a sudden death over-time game, 6-5. The overall record for the team was 6 wins, 5 defeats and one tie. A host of Freshmen were available for Coach Turner early in the season but due to a Freshman rule in the NEIHL they were ineligible in league games and then a conflict in scheduling with the amateur Springfield Flyers took them away on other nights. All of this was to the good, however, as the yearlings had a chance to keep in shape by playing the game. They definitely will aid Coach Turner's team next year. Capt. Fred Zanetti and joe Buchholz were the men who kept the opponents away from the home cage as both of, these stellar athletes kept a watchful eye on the nets and forced the opposition to lose the puck many a ti1ne. Zanetti, a senior, was dually honored as upon the completion of the season he was awarded the "Hockey Cleaners" trophy in recog- nition of outstanding service to the hockey team. ln league competition the Turner-men defeated the Univ. of Mass., tied Northeastern and lost to Tufts, twieeg M.l.T., and Boston University. In non-league games the Aces defeated Holy Cross, St. Anselm's, Springheld ,Amherst and Suffolk in that order. Seniors who will be lost are Capt. Fred Zanetti, Bob Clason, Bob Boulrice, Flem Cocchi, Dick Hatcher, Art Burdick, and Dick Lamothe. Seven Freshmen will be available, however, in Eno Campanini, Rudy Altohelli, Lou Astorino, Dick Longueil, Don Dextradeur, Carl johnson, and Wimpy Varani.

Tennis The Tennis Team, although conducted on an informal basis, finished a very successful season with a record of three wins and one defeat last year. Victory came soon with a resounding win over a strong New Britain Teachers team and then two more over Arnold and New Britain, again, to make it three straight. Victory was too sweet, however. as the arch-rivals of the Aces came from across town and pinned a 5-1 defeat on our racqueteers thus spoiling an undefeated season. Bad weather and last minute scheduling difficul- ties caused the clate to be a small one, but this was definitely a good beginning towards bigger tennis doings at AIC. Members of this informal team included: Capt. joseph Price, Dave Lorenzi, Bud Fine, Charles Wha- len, Roy Devine, Marvin Yudkin, Dick Carbone, and jerry Radding. Faculty sponsors were Drs. Fred Palmer and Ken Winetrout. The tentative schedule for the Aces this year lists such schools as Clark, Wesleyan ,Worcester Tech, New Britain Teachers, and our perennial rivals, Springfield College.

Veteran Crew Coach Bill Rubner led the team down into the sunny climes of Florida where they competed respective- ly, against the U. of Tampa, Florida Southern and Rollins. The water trained boys of the South proved too much for our Wright Hall basement boys and their rowing machines, for they lost all three meets. A return to home waters proved beneficial as the oarsmen defeated Clark University in the Northern opener on the Connecticut River, pulling away at the end by three lengths. Stimulated by their first victory the yswung into action against the Lord Jeffs of Amherst only to lose an exciting last ditch battle by four seconds. The famous Derby Day held by Yale found our Crew on the losing end again as the Bulldogs proved Golf The golfers representing AIC on the green links of New England courses last season turned in a good score to the Athletic Ofhce at the end of the season. The Linksters turned in an overall record of five wins and three losses, and they placed tenth in the New England College Tourney. When the link team took to the courses early in the spring they were represented by Big Bob Shea, a well-known local amateur golfer, Abby Hatchedorian, a terrific driver, and Alex Svitenko, who always plays a steady game. Also on the squad were Fay Wlilliams, and Hal Ethier. for too strong. An invitation was extended to the Dad Vail Regatta at Poughkeepsie and it was here that they had their most unique experience. A brisk wind whipped the water into a frenzy and Coxie jim McKenna got that old lonely feeling as on each dip of the waves some of the team temporarily disappeared. Boston University won the Regatta with the Aces coming in seventh in an eight entry race. On the squad of the Crew were Capt. Glenn Gray, Al Midura, Kent Fernald, Tom Bryant, Howie Quimby, Ken Manning, Scottie Hylen, Dick Finck, Ray Keider- ling, Chet Gronostalski and Pat Piscopo. Besides the usual Southern trip that takes place during the Easter Recess, Northern races are being arranged against Amherst, Yale, Dartmouth, Lasalle, Clark and then the Dad Vail Regatta for this season. The representatives of the golf team defeated Clark University twice, they split in their matches with the University of Mass., then they went on to beat Fort Devens and Springfield. Their other losses came at the hands of both Siena College and Xvesleyan Univer- sity. The boys entered the New England Tourney and came out in tenth place as Alex Svitenko shot a low 81. Prof. William Duffey of the faculty was in charge of the team last year. Xvhen the team takes to the green links this season they will be coached by Tom "Chip" Gannon, better known for his feats on the football turf. 5 Y Cheerleaders Left to right, the cheerleaderx: Barbara Bike, George LeRoy, Irene Valloti, Milt Savos, Judy Keegan, Bob Lavigne, and Dawn Dolan.
