SHAW Bookkeeper I J iALon ¥ " 1 SENIOR CLASS We were born in the autumn of 1941 under the guidance of Bart Reese. Our constitution was formulated by such now absent names as John Harrison, Sam Hildebrand, Jim Eden, and Bart Fugler. We struggled through a year of freshman frivolity achieving such firsts as freshman co-editors of the student newspaper, In Ted Sandler and Bill Bosien, Anne Sweet ' s " Fight Song, " the Freshman hHayride and a well mimeographed Pin-feathers, " whose representative freshman themes have not been dupli- cated since, aided by such hands as those of Betty Erhardt and hlildreth Whittle. Constitutional difficulties changed our voting system from majority rule to the preferential system and our revised constitution has been the model for incoming classes ever since. John Pribram and Pudge Malony are remembered for these days. Our second year we kept up our share of firsts with the Sophomore Box Lunch, and in February we contributed a good share of the twenty-two boys who left for the army. That year Bosien, as editor of the " Eagle, " introduced the policy of Rhodes Scholars for A. U., which initiated the coming of students from Iceland to this and other colleges of the United States. He was also instrumental in revising the student body constitution and in installing the servicemen ' s Honor Roll, and ended up by achieving the distinction of being the first second-year student to be made a member of all but two possible major honoraries on campus. The third year found many new faces to replace the old ones in leading the class. Gary Schweitzer and Teen Clay came up from the ranks and Mary Lu Auch, Lucia Englehart and Ed Lewis came to the fore. Bob Brockway and Barbara Hulfish became the first students to graduate in three years. Our Junior Prom at the Hotel Annapolis became one of the most memorable for many years. This year we have been guided by Becky Burns, Marcia Crouter, Irene Jaworowski, Jean Leighton, Daphne Stevenson, and Anne Trammell — these alone have gone here all four years and now remain to graduate in June, of the original class of over one hundred. We have not forgotten those who helped to make our class all that it is and we believe the college will not soon forget or fail to feel our hand. We know we shall never forget all the things that it has done for us. LEONARDO TESTA WASHINGTON . D. C.

From men of the downtown school Coach Artie Boyd whipped into shape the team that is the second one in the history of the Mason-Dixon Conference to take top honors in the regular hoop tournament and also the Conference title . . . practice started late . . . but the Eagles took their first game 55-49 . . . the first home game was an easy victory 76-38 . . .

Loyola came to A. U. to play the first game of the season in which the Eagles were threatened . . . but we made it— 42-39 ... the Eagles go to Mt. St. Mary ' s to edqe them out of a game 40-38 . . . then Randolph-Macon took a trouncing 58-38 . . . the newspapers prophesied that our unde- feated team would take the M-D conference . . . Bridgewater gave the Orange and Blue a scare . . . they climbed up to tie our score and repeated this every time the Eagles chalked up two points ... it seemed a lost game until a basket and a foul shot just before the whistle 80 blew . . . our score, 51-48 . . . next the Eagles ran helter-skelter over Johns hlopklns 52-28 . . . with little Captain Johnny Poston and skyscraper Bob Llndeman missinq, our undefeated team won over Mt. St. Marys by one point . . . with ten victories safely tucked away the total points scored equal 563 . . . Ray and Bob hold highest averages per game with 15.5 and 5.1 points respectively . . . then came a turn . . . the Eagles were jolted out of their undefeated status by Washington College with a score of 29-43 . . . but this did not change the opinions of the predictors as to the winner of the Con- ference title . . . two more victories rung up to end the season . . . the annual Conference games at Baltimore were eagerly looked forward to ... It seemed a sure thing for A, U. . . . we mopped up Randolph-Macon 45-34 . . . the Virginia Eagles were not disposed of so easily, 59-55 . . . then came the finals, with Johns Hopkins bowing to the Eagles 70-36 to give A.

Now, while we ' re still in such a blissful mood, comes the time for handing out bouquets to those who have worked so hard to make this year ' s " Aucola " a success: Mike Adams, business manager extraordinary and paragon of perfection with her accounts; Mack, the gal who can keep one foot in the door until they say " yes " (P. S. She got the ads); Alice Lundegaard, expert at beating dead-lines via the hunt-and-peck system; Beezie, our indefatigable sports writer; and the photography editors — all four — who came through with more pictures than ever. Special thanks are due to Mr. Capelio, who helped out in many an emergency, and to Mr. Benson, our photographer, engraver, and printer, whose cooperation, untiring effort, and assistance were invaluable. And so, through headache and heartache comes the 1945 " Aucola. " RUTH CAPELLO, ANNE TRAMMELL, Editors. 97 The World Needs Ideas There ' s so much to be done! And the months ahead hold still greater tasks! As this is written, we dare not even hazard a guess whether you ' ll be graduating into a world at war, or into one faced with the reconstruction for peace. But of one thing we are sure — that there ' s a place for you and your ideas. Ideas are the seed from which The American Way of Life has grown; and the working partners of Ideas are Application and Determination. Your success in whatever field you enter will be determined by the extent to which you use these three. Griffith-Consumers Company 1413 New York Avenue, N.W.
