Mr. Chairman and Members of the Board of
Trustees, Members of the Clergy, Mayor Brunton,
Distinguished Guests, Members of our College fa-
mily and friends,
I am deeply impressed by your charge to me.
It is with a sense of humility and of deep devo-
tion to this College that I accept your charge and the
tangible evidences of the office. The responsibilty
will be great, but I am proud to feel that I will have
an even larger part inthe future building of the
College . . .
Those of you who happened to attend the 150th
anniversary of Deerfield Academy a few years ago
may remember President Conant's definition, when
he remarked that a College President was a person
who wore a worried look-on his Vice-President's
face. Having been one of those Vice-Presidents for
the last three years, I doubt very much if all my
troubles are over now. Many a headmaster, principal,
superintendent and College president I know has the
same look of deep concern for the present and future
welfare of his school or college. The task is always an
enormous one and I begin it with serious feelings,
but also with enthusiasm and confidence . . .
I am thankful, though, for the good works
brought to this College by my predecessors . . . all
of them gave of themselves, and the College profited
under them. For that heritage I am grateful. We at
this College are proud and'fortunate to have so de-
voted a group of unselfish Trustees, so fine a Faculty,
such able and earnest students and so loyal an alumni
body. With such an army we cannot fail to prosper
and progress . . .
But our progress at the College should be sure.
We must be certain of where we are going.
Recently I have grown a little weary. of hearing
complaints that the student of today is .not as good
as yesteryear . . . For some reason or other, students
are never as good as when "we went to school!" I am
convinced, however, that the "good old days" were
not really so good-or at least, that people are not
so greatly different now.
Let us take what we have and make the most of
it, for the young men and women in College now
will provide the business and professional leaders of
tomorrow-and they will measure up to the standards
that have always been considered good . . .
And here, by the way ,is a special problem for
all of us to face-for it is necessary now to attract
to the teaching profession these young people who
have the intellectual capabilities and leadership
fiat? ff-'Y f- e -
qualities that are so necessary for this important life
of service to our youth. In the next brief span of
years before 1960, it will be necessary to train and
provide 15,000 new college instructors in the Social
Sciences and Humanities alone . . . and some 26,000
more within the five years after that, so it behooves
us to recognize this tremendous repsonsibility well be-
fore the need is actually upon us.
The State Universities and Teachers' Colleges
cannot and should not be forced to do this job alone.
We must plan to do our share and do it well . . .
Here at this College, perhaps we can emphasize
to a greater extent what we offer, what we are doing,
and what we can do for the community . . .
It is not enough, though, to place the entire em-
phasis on the major academic programs alone . . .
Our plans will include several additional build-
ings to provide for science laboratories, new and
additional classroom space for the use of all divisions
of the College, an auditorium where our students may
assemble, a student activities center and an adequate
gymnasium. We cannot do all of this in a year or
two, but we can set our goal to meet the needs of
our faculty and students.
Because the academic capabilities of our youth are
not and never will be determined by the financial
status of their families, it is a sad thought that so
many brilliant high school students cannot plan for
college. We must help them receive the educational
benefits they deserve . . . We must not waste the
human resources available at our doorstep nor de-
prive the nation of this great potential of brain
Financial aid in the form of grants or work scho-
larships must be provided . . .
At ,American International College we will con-
tinue to stand for and practice freedom of inquiry
and the right to study, discuss and examine contro-
versial matters regardless of whether or not the ideas
or theories happen at the moment to be popular. We
must insist and emphasize that rigorous intellectual
training teaches men to think for themselves. We
can continue to live and practice democracy only as
long as men are free and we do not bow to false
outside pressures and propaganda, for in this way
only will our independent educational system survive.
Let us continue to seek the truth and open wide
the dark curtains. Our predecessors chose wisely
when they selected our motto inscribed on the seal
of our College:

The Student Government at A.I.C. is the major
force behind all the student activities on the campus.
It is within this body that the, general number of
student rules and regulations are fostered and upheld.
The S.G. is' the governing body on campus of all
Organizations other than fraternities and sororities.
The function of the S.G. is to lead and not to
command. This it does with facility through its stand-
The Finance Committee is responsible for the
distribution of funds to the various student organiza-
tions. It is the duty of this committee to make sure
that no organization goes into debt or spends its
money in any foolish manner, since the money is
allocated by the S.G. through the Finance Committee.
The Student Activities Committee keeps all so-
cial activities on campus running at a smooth pace so
that they do not interfere with each other. The com-
mittee also thinks up new activities that will benefit
the school and the general student body.
The Legislative Committee is responsible for the
smooth functioning of the S.G. meetings in accor-
dance with parlimentary procedure. They also list
the rulings of the S.G. This past year they completely
revised the S.G. Manuel and brought it up to date.
The National Student Association Committee
keeps the student body informed of what is going on
in other student organizations throughout the country.
The Student Faculty Committee is composed of
members of the S.G. and the Faculty of the college.
They work out problems that arise where both the
students and the administration are concerned.
Thus the Student Government works in every
phase of college life and helps to make the student
more a part of the college then just attending lectures

The Cbemiftry Club of AIC, now a student chapter of the American Chemi-

knowledge in their field of interest. The high point for the year is the annual
regional meeting of the ACS. A number of informative lectures by prominent
chemists is sponsored by the ACS affiliates at the college.

Arcus Biologicae is one of the largest and most active clubs on the A.I.C.
The club has several meetings during the year in which films and speakers
are presented, and informal group discussions are held. Each Spring Arcus Bio-
logicae sponsors the Chest X-Ray program for the detection of tuberculosis in co-
operation with the Hampden County Tuberculosis Association, as a free service
to the students, faculty and staff.
Arcus Biologicae sends delegates to the biological conferences held at various
colleges in New England and nearby districts. These conferences give the stu-
dents an opportunity to present research papers and demonstration.
The group is characterized by informal "coffee hours", field trips, and mutual

American International .College's Business Club is open to all students who
wish to increase their understanding of the business world.
Meetings are held once a month. Speakers in all phases of business are invited
to address these monthly meetings. Questions, refreshments, and a social hour
follow each of the speaker meetings.
In the Spring a community project is undertaken by the membership. This
year the club aided the Red Cross Blood Drive in their publicity campaign. High-
lighting the year is the annual field trip to New York City..
' The welcoming banquet for new officers is the final undertaking of the Busi-
ness Club each year in May. As an active social organization, this group success-
fully combines business with pleasure.

This year Choral Club was a small but interested and active group who gath-
ered together for the primary purpose of singing and enjoying vocal music.
Under the directorship of Byron Daudlin the club sang at various functions
held at the college during the year. They also presented a concert in Agawam,
which was a pleasing and successful venture.
If the club ranks continue to grow as they have in the past year, A.I.C. will
have one of the best musical groups in this section of the state.

This was the first year that a Hillel group was organized on the A.I.C. campus
This group, known as the B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation has Rabbi Herman E.
Snyder as its advisor.
When the group first organized, it elected Thelma Ponser as its president.
The group has not been socially too active this first year due to its probationary
status on the campus.
The newly elected officers of the group who will lead Hillel for its 1954-55
scholastic year are: Lois Jackowitz, president, Bob Pomerantz, vice-president, Rose
Levin, secretary, Judy Margolis, treasurer, ,and Gary Resnick, Student Government
These officers have expressed their hope to build the Hillel organization into
one of the most active groups on the campus,
IN TERFAITH FELLOWSHIP
Interfaith Fellowship presently has members representing Catholicism, Prot-
estantism, Judaism, Greek Orthodoxy, and Mohammedanism. The Fellowship
strives toward furthering an understanding and appreciation of all religions and
recognizing the responsibilities of each individual to develop the highest capaci-
ties of his personality, both because of its inherent worth as an entrustment, and
be-cause of his potential service to others.
The annual collegewide worship services held on Thanksgiving, Christmas,
and Easter in D-5 are a prelude to each holiday. Members of the administration,
faculty, student body and fellowship participate in the services, and another cam-
pus group, the Choral Club, provides the hymns and musical portions of the
In order to carry out the goal of understanding the different religions, this
year a new project of visits to the churches and temples in the Springfield area
was planned. Two such visits were made to the Church of the Unity and the Beth
El Temple. "
Through Interfaith, A.I.C. is a member of the Pioneer Valley Intercollegiate
Council. Conferences are held and interfaith members are sent to represent this
college thus furthering Interfaith's goals.

The International Relations Club offers an oppotrtunity for the study and dis-
cussion of the many current world problems. The I.R.C. of A.I.C. sponsors annu-
ally a trip to the United Nations headquarters, a U.N. Week program, andlrep-
resentation of regional conferences. It is an important contribution ro a broadened
understanding of international relations for the students of A.I.C.
This year, as in past years, students majoring in the field of mathematics and
the related sciences have found the Math Club to be of great value in furthering
their knowledge of mathematics and its application.
Among the speakers this year were Dr. Israel Rose, Professor of Mathematics
at the University of Massachusetts, Mr. Martin Stewart, Professor of Physics at
American International College, Mr. William Achramowitz, graduate of Worces-
ter Polytechnic Institute, and Mr. Ramon C. Scott, alumnus of American Interna-

"COR AD COR LIQUITURH
Since its inception in 1952, the Newman Club has become an integral part
of campus life for the Catholic student. Club programs and activities are carefully
planned to satisfy the religious, social, and intellectual needs of its members.
Devoted as it to aiding the college where necessary, the Club took an
active interest in instructing its Student Government Representative to vote and
support measures for the good of the college and the student body.
The thanks of a grateful membership are extended to Father Thomas Shea,
Chaplain, to Mr. William Duffy, Faculty Advisor, and to Dr. Charles Gadaire,
Director of Student Activities, Without their guidance and inspiration the Club
could not have prospered. I

The Garret Players started another successful year on this campus with the
period comedy, "Strange Bedfellows". The main rolls were capably handled by:
Turza Moore, Robert Furey, Jean Cannon, Ray MacMillan, Eleanor Wolfson and
Harry Crane. In fact, this play served as a campus topic for sometime.
The Garret Players then sponsored a class in creative dramatics under the di-
rection of john Gaffney, it's very talented director. The course was run for eight
weeks with classes one night a week. Those who attended all felt that these classes
should become a regular part of the program for this organization.
This Spring The Garret Players made its TV debut by entering in a TV dra-
matic contest for local colleges. The script chosen was "The Family of Bruse
Haviland" in which Eleanor Wolfson gave her last of many fine performances.
Leading rolls were also held by bright newcomers Turza Moore, and Judy Volpini.
At the closing picnic it was agreed that a year packed full of backstage laughs,
nervous first nights, and new experiences had been enjoyed and the hopes for next
year were bright. A word of thanks to the old officers and to jack Gaffney were
expressed along with wishes of good luck for the new officers.

W.A.I.C., under the able direction of Mr. Warren Messenger, former head of
the college Visual Aid Dept., overcame many of the difficulties which were pre-
sented by the full year of inactivity on the part of W.A.I.C. After considerable
work the station was finally reactivated on February 2, 1954. Broadcasting was
out of necessity, on a limited basis, although improvement and gradual expansion
became obvious as time progressed.
The W.A.I.C. year was highlighted by the visit of a 1951 graduate of A.I.C.,
Mr. Joe Bernstein. Mr. Bernstein is now a radio program director at the New
York studios of The American Broadcasting Company, and a former head of
W.A.I.C. He was, of course, extremely interested in the progress made by this
year's staff, and had many valuable suggestions and comments which will undoubt-
edly be put to use next year. '
This years' entire staff is returning in the Fall, so the station will be in the
hands of experienced students who know exactly what has been done as well as
what must be done in order to reach their goal. To say the station has been a
failure would be a fallacy as well as an injustice to those who have worked so
hard to put W.A.I.C. back on the air. As one of the station's staff put it, "This
year we have given the students of A.l.C. only a small taste of our plans-next
year we hope to serve them the full course meal."
Come the Fall we will all be listening for the familiar phrase, "This is your
station for education, the radio voice of American International College, W.A.l.C.

Early last Fall the members of the Walter Rice Debate Council met to sched-

a Policy of Free Trade". The library became a second home and their throats
were hoarse before two teams were in shape for the annual University of Vermont
The competition was tough but we came back with a few wins and a lot of
Two more teams were sent to N. Y. U. in December and after more debates
both with home teams and those of other colleges we sent debaters to the Brooklyn
College Tournament which is the largest tournament in the world.
On March 27th we played host to eight colleges for our own 3rd Annual
A.I.C. Debate Tournament. The competition was extremely keen but at its close
the trophy was presented to the four debaters from Harvard.
The members of the Walter Rice Debate Council served as the backbone of
the Annual Model Congress Committees held in April. John Brogan was elected
chairman of this affair which had the largest representation to date. Six states were
represented and our main speaker was Foster Furculo.

The Veterans' Arrociation offersto those who have served in the armed forces
an opportunity to meet with persons of mutual experience and interests. Its pur-
pose is to aid the student veteran in the understanding of benefits and rights due,
to give time to the discussion of problems confronting the veteran, and to provide
co-curricular refresher courses and social activities.
A second but equally important purpose of the association is to aid those
students, who will some day be members of the armed forces, to better understand
the problems and opportunities with which they will be faced. Lectures drawn
from the various branches of the government and appropriate movies will aid
in this program.

to summarize and complete four years of college is
an exciting privilege. But rather than tell you of all

Friendliness and cooperation characterize A.I.C. Every
student recognizes this. And, thanks to the foresight of our
Student Government in inaugurating the Freshman Orienta-
tion program, once again our incoming ffeshmen saw this
fA.I.C. spirit in action.
On Monday and Tuesday mornings, September 14 and
15, over 300 freshmen were greeted in Lee Hall by John
Braica, Chairman of Freshmen Orientation. Each co-ed was
assigned a "Big Sister", and no more than five men were
assigned to each upper class adviser. The "red-tape" of
filling in registration forms and having photographs taken
was followed up by the presentation to each 'freshman of
concrete evidences of his status as a member of the A.I.C.
student body: an A.I.C. sticker, an A.I.C. bookcover, and
an A.I.C. gold pin. Introduction to the facilities of the
campus included registration in the Administration Build-

Hall, Wright House, Stryker Hall, Amaron Hall, Owen
Street Hall, D.A.R. Dormitory, and the Cafeteria.
Tuesday afternoon at Reed Hall the freshmen had a
further opportunity to get to know one another, their up-
per classmen advisers, and faculty members. After a barbe-
que lunch, Admiral Hines opened the program' with ai
welcoming address. Dean Ullery explained the purpose and
value of the Introduction to College Living Course, a re-
quirement for all freshmen. The functions of the Student
Activities Office were described by Dr. Gadaire, and Student
Government President Gerald Sachs emphasized the coop-
erative nature of our college community. The day was
climaxed by a dance in honor of the freshmen.
The Freshman Orientation Committee and the upper
classman advisers and 'Big Sisters" who made the incoming
freshmen so "at home" are true representatives of the
friendly and cooperative spirits of A.1.C. Their example will
serve as an inspiration to the Class of '57 to show the
same spirit to the next-entering Class of '58.
About 300 students enjoyed the activities of Mountain Day,
Tuesday, October 20, at Reed Estate. Co-Chairmen of the festivi-
ties of this day were John Braica and Kay Greene. The gala event
was actually scheduled for the South Branch Park, but all public
parks were closed by the state due to the fire hazard .because of
lack of rain.
Pull-Pulllll was the systematic shout of the male sophomore
team as they pulled the freshmen team through the midpoint of
the rope, which was a wall of water from a powerful Fire De-
partment hose. This meant that the male freshmen had to continue
to wear their yellow ties. The Freshmen girls however, out-
powered the second-year girls in the rope pull, therefore they did
not have to continue to wear their yellow neckerchiefs.
The traditional Mountain Day sport activities were played
by the students as they used up their energy in playing: softball,
touch football, volley ball, croquet and badminton.
Later in the afternoon a hot dog roast helped restore all the
used up energy. Dr. Gadaire proclaimed himself chief food-taster
of the event.
Highlighting the close of the festivities of the day was a
dance at Reed Hall.
,-. ...WS "
"1-Iic Hop! Hic Hop! Everybody that's anybody from
the hills is going." For a full two weeks before the
mountain spirit invaded the Ivy House in West Springfield,
the cry was heard around campus.
Atmosphere, fun, and frolic were the keynotes of the
night as backwoods couples danced the square and made
merry for their big night on the town.
What could have been more appropriate for such a
highly successful Sophomore dance than the rural atmos-
phere of cornstalks, pumpkins, and a real hoe-down band?
As the horse and buggies carrying their cargo of tired,
but happy mountain men and women headed for home, the
cries of "I-lic Hop! Hic Hop!" were heard far into the

HO ECOMING DAY
On the morning of October 17, 1953, the annual Home-
coming Day festivities commenced with the registration of
parents and wives of American International College stu-
dents in McGowan Library. Following registration all visit-
ors were met by student guides and led on a conducted tour
of the various campus buildings where student activity dis-
plays were presented. The first stop for all tourists was our
own college library. Here, after introduction to the librari-
ans on duty, guests had the opportunity to see the modern
facilities of which the college is so proud, aswell as sam-
ples of all publications currently the literary tasks of carn-
pus organizations. Each visitor received a student handbook
Yellow ijacket, and A.I.C. banner to keep as souvenirs of
this trip. An excursion through the biology department,
student activities office, and Administration Building re-
vealed other activities and efforts on the part of students,
faculty, and administrative ofiicers to progress in educational
advantages both academic and cultural. Professors remained
in their offices to interview those who came to see them,
and the Audio-Visual Aids Department sponsored a lilrn
on Atomic Energy for all those interested. The final event
of the morning was an informal coffee-hour at which pa-
rents and students compared notes on college life and activi-
ries. Tours ran smoothly and visitorsiwere impresed' with
the general feeling of friendliness displayed by the guides
and other people on campus.
The annual Homecoming football game between
Springfield College and American International College was
the major function of the afternoon. A co-sponsored college
Victory Dance ended the day's activities, leaving a tired but
happy group of participants to wend their weary way home
Co-Chairmen of this year's Junior Prom were Sara
O'Martain and Louis Alex. Their very active committee
approved the new idea of having the dance early in the
year to round out a home football weekend. This plan was
heartily received by all participating AICites.
Thus, for the first time, the Junior Prom was held in
October with the theme of "Autumn Nocture". Red, yellow,
orange, and brown leaves decorated the walls of the ball
room at Rovelli's on Boston Road. Russet colors were con-
tinued on the petit programs. White and yellow satin gar-
ters were given to the gown-clad ladies. Swirling music was
provided by the old Wendell Bradway orchestra.
Climax of the evening was the selection of Mrs. Wil-
liam Heinrich, regal wife of an A.I.C. Junior, to reign
at the formal. Her two attendants were Misses Louise Forest
and Clarice Croto, chosen by faculty patrons at the dance.
More than one hundred couples were on hand to see
the Coronation and dance in the russet-decorated ball room
at the "Autumn Nocture".

The American International College football team turned in a commendable per-
formance for its 1953 season with five wins, one loss, and one tie. It was the second
game of the season which taught the Butovamen how to take defeat. This single defeat
was at the hands of Northeastern who came to Springfield to revenge the 1952 A.I.C.
On Homecoming Day our football team entered Springfield College's field rated
the underdog and came out with a tie which was a moral victory for AI.C. Tradition
held true again this year for the Springfield vs. A.I.C. game was the most tensly fought
contest of the year.
Daniel Beldyga started as A.I.C.'s back for the better part of the season. The
rest of the backfield was made up of Co-Captain Al Laude at fullback, Al Lombardi at
left, and john Cox at righthalf. In the line, Nolie Stovall and Ralph Cerrato, serving
the ends, performed well. Ed Kachinski and Co-Captain john Doldoorian the tackles,
Dick Thurber, Dick Prattle, and Mike Roberto guards, and Vincent Ciancotti at center
rounded out the squad. Our line averaged 192 pounds per man, the backfield about 170.

When the American International College basketball team began
pre-season practice last November it was described as a squad of in-
experienced youngsters that might develop into a formidable team by
the second half of the season. What happened seemed to bear out that
prediction as the "Aces" from Springfield, Mass. dropped seven of
their first eight games, then made a complete turn about to go on a
winning spree that saw them winning twelve of the last sixteen games
to compile a season's record of 13 wins and 11 losses. What wasn't
predicted, however, was the sensational performance turned in by Dick
Kross, 6' 4" youngster from Oakville, Conn., who came to A.I.C. by
way of Watertown High.
Another surprise was the way that Johnny jones of Springfield
Tech quickly made the turnover from high school to college basket-
ball. The men who saw the most action with the 1953-54 team which
was selected to play in the NAIA regional tourney and came home
with the runnetup trophy were Captain Richard Clark, john Anzalotti,
john Fontana, John Jones, Richard Kross, John O'Donnell, Lucien
Plante, and Reginald Spears.

As in previous years, this season's Aces played some of the best
teams in the East including, Yale, Army, R.P.I., Clarkson, Princeton,
and Middlebury. The Aces were perhaps the best balanced, and most
talented team in the history of the sport here at A.I.C. It deserved a
better fate than it was dealt. Unfortunate events resulted in uncalled
for losses. The team's potentiality was not fully utilized in these losses
due to circumstances beyond the players' control.
This year's Aces-Springfield College games were highlighted by
more enthusiasm on the part of the two colleges than ever before. The
Indians, loaded with imported Canadian talent, forced the Aces into
overtime in the hrst game before the Turnermen dented the twine for
a sensational win amongst the clamoring of excited fans. The second
game proved to be equally as exciting with the Aces pulling out in
front early in the contest and holding this lead until the closing mo:
ments when an upsurge by Springfield and lack of defensive tactics
by the Turnermen brought about the first hockey victory for Springfield
over our Aces-ever. The leading scorer again this year was Captain
Donald Geary with 13 goals and 10 assists. Mr. Turner will find it hard
next year trying to replace such standouts as Richard Mazan, Raymond
Mazan, Albert Colatosti, Mark Keaney, Howie McGrath, Russ Johnson,
and Capt. Donald Geary.

Every year A.I.C. has a small group of men who are skiing en-
thusiasts. This group makes the nucleus of our skiing team.
On Winter weekends they head North for the intercollegiate
downhill races. When the Winter Carvival rolls around each year they
play hosts to such colleges as Dartmouth, Harvard, Yale, Boston Col-
lege, Boston University and Brown in the annual A.I.C. ski meet. Our
ski team's annual spectacle at the Springfield Skiing Club is appreciated
by all Carnival goers.

The 1954 A.I.C. crew team consisted of only one varsity shell.
It was the lightest crew team our college has ever had. Co-captains
Leo LaMontagne and Robert Bird helped Coach William Rubner
keep the members' spirits up as they rowed the icy Connecticut River
in early morning and late evening rowing sessions.
Once again the crew made its annual Easter vacation trip to the
warm Southland to row against Tampa University and Florida South-
ern-then went on to Philadelphia -to participate in the Eastern Sea-
board's DAD VAIL REGATTA.

Like the basketball team, A.I.C.'s baseball team got off to a slow
start this year losing the opener to R.P.I. by one run-a score of 8 to 9.
This game started off the series of one run decision games: A.I.C. 5
vs. New Britain 4, A.I.C. 3 vs. Amherst 4, A.I.C. 6 vs. Middlebury 5.
Our 10 to 4 win over Providence College snapped this one run deci-
The Aces took U. Mass. 9 to 3 and Clark University 3 to 1 before
dropping one run games to Springfield and Williams College, In a
commendable eleven inning game, the Gold and White came through
to defeat Boston University 6 to 5 at Braves Field. Assumption halted
the Aces with a 6 to 9 check, but A.I.C. bounced back to take Lowell
5 to 2, before going on to face Holy Cross, U. Conn., and Worcester
Coach Butova had a group of six pitchers to pick from this sea-
son: Bob Ford, Peter Fisher, Charles Baird, Andy Quirk, Richard
Shaw, and Carl Pawloski. Other team members and their positions
were Lucien Plante, ss, Capt. Doldoorian, 1B, Joe Perlik, SB, Dick
Ullery, RF, Joe Silvestri, CF, Bob Avis, LF, Fred Keith, C, Pete
The fine caliber of the 1954 baseball team was evidenced when
the two teams A.I.C. beat, Boston University Q6 to -55 and University
of Massachusetts C9 to 63, were selected for the N.C.A.A. playoffs.
A group of Connecticut boys made up the backbone of A.I.C.'s
golf team again this year, Captain Donald Geary, Carl Pawloski, Rich-
ard Mazan, and Raymond Mazan. The other three golfers rounding
out the team were Marc Silva, Chet Ukleja, and Don Giblin.
The best match of the season was played at Franconia Golf
Course against the University of Connecticut. Each of our players was
pitted against a man of almost equal ability and skill. Coach O'Grady
remarked, "This year's match with U. Conn. was one of those which
you could follow any one of our six players and see a good game of
golf." A.l.C. came out the underdog by only M point.
Arch-rival Springfield College bowed to A.I.C.'s golf team as did
Clark University. Captain Don Geary again led the group in points.
He upheld his reputation as A.I.Cfs best man with the woods and irons.
Director of Athletics, Henry A. Butova, and Coach, joseph J.
O'Grady, affirmed the tearn's invitation to the N.E.I.C.C. tournament
and the 1954 golf tearn traveled to Watertown, Mass. for its final
match for the Gold and White. v

Another varsity sport was reactivated at A.I.C. this year when the
Director of Athletics, Henry A. Butova, appointed Peter jackson coach
for the 1955-54 season.
Because of a late start, the soccer team was able to schedule only
three games. The team was undefeated. Squad members included:
Finley Ferandz SCHEDULE
Bouve Hussein Nichols Jr College Alf. Oppolnem
Cowles Zordan Monson Academy 2 1
KCHHY Mazef M.s.A. sTUDENTs 9 5
Silverman jackson, Peter
The last game on the schedule, A.I.C. vs. the M.S.A. students was
probably the most spirited game of the season. It was played at AIC
Park with the high total of 12 goalsg 9 for A.I.C. and 3 for the M.S.A.
, D, .-... , . .ut ...4....:,..,,..L..c
Back practicing early this Spring on the Blunt Park and Forest
Park courts for the A.I.C. team were veterans Donald White, Capt.
George Fontaine, John Braica, Dick Raphael, and John Lussier.
Once again objectionable weather conditions hampered the team
-if it wasn't raining, there was a high wind. The team went through
another season without defeating any of their strong opponents. john
Lussier, however, proved his value as a point-getter while Donald
White, Dick Raphael, and George Fontaine continually played long,
tiring sets giving their opponents thorough workouts.
Coach Nick Rodis hopefully cited the new group of tennismen
who turned out this year. After a few more matches in college tennis,
this group of '57ers may turn the tide for A.I.C.'s inter-collegiate record.

M. S. A. SOCCER
In the Fall of 1955 the American International College M.S.A.
group formulated a peppy soccer team and practiced faithfully at the
AIC Park. Mr. Flink served as the successful coach, and Mr. Mitchell
was the advisor.
With a fine background of soccer, the students held several very
good inter-squad games. Their high enthusiasm in forming the team
carried through to the end of 1953 season.

Women s Athletle ASSOCl3tl0H
The W.A.A. at American International College, like the Varsity
Club, works in close connection with the Athletic Department with
their volunteer sports program.
Two varsity sports, basketball and softball, provedmost popular
with members this year. Swimming at Trinity Pool was open to begin-
ners, intermediate, and senior life saving students. Bowling was another
winter sport which met with high favor in the 1953-1954 season.
4 Members of the W.A.A., all varsity letter girls, formulate the
backbone of the Womens Athletic program.
