J tuart iK.ick (Ouiineii fVlanaijer UNIQUE AMONG CLASSES IS ONE THAT SPANS IN FOUR YEARS THE AVERAGE EXPERIENCES OF A WHOLE LIFETIME— LIFE TO DEATH— PEACE TO WAR. AS UNWILLING POSSESSORS OF THIS DISTINCTION, WE HAVE SEEN OUR CLASS DECIMATED TO THE CALL OF WAR— RETURNING ONCE MORE TO THE ADJUST- MENTS OF PEACE. THREE DECADES AGO ANOTHER CLASS FOUGHT A WAR— THAT TIME TO END ALL WARS; THE COLLEGE YOUTH OF THE TWENTIES SPENT HIS TIME TRYING TO FORGET; THE THIRTIES DID FORGET AND CALLED HIM FRIVOLOUS; AND FRIVOLOUS YOUTH FROM 1941 TO 1945 FOUGHT THIS PAST WAR. WE COULD BE BITTER AND SAY THAT WE HAD BEEN CHEATED OUT OF WHAT WAS RIGHTFULLY OURS— GAIETY, LACK OF RESPONSIBILITY, AND CON- VERTIBLES OR WE COULD RESORT TO " ROSY-GLOW " OPTIMISM AND SAY THAT OURS WAS A GREAT HER- ITAGE, AND THAT ALL WE HAD TO DO WAS LOOK AROUND THAT EVER-BECKONING CORNER — AND THERE — WERE OUR NEW WORLDS TO CONQUER. BUT HOW CAN WE SAY THAT WE HAVE BEEN CHEATED WHEN ALL THE REST OF THE WORLD FACES POV- ERTY, DEATH, FAMINE AND PESTILENCE? YET BIT- TERNESS IS EASY AND THERE ARE ALWAYS THE SELF- DELUDERS WITH THEIR EASIER-WAY-OUTS. WE, THIS COLLEGE, AND THIS NATION MUST CHOOSE A DIF- FERENT WAY — FOR BITTERNESS LEADS TO SELF- DESTRUCTION. THIS MUCH IS CLEAR. WE OWE A RESPONSIBILITY TO THE REST OF THE WORLD. THE COLLEGE MEN AND WOMEN OF TODAY HAVE ILLUS- TRATED THAT THEY ARE AWARE OF THIS RESPONSI- BILITY AND HAVE DEFINITE IDEAS ON WHAT MUST BE DONE. WITH THIS AWARENESS, WE MAY BE SURE THAT RATHER THAN A FEELING OF BITTERNESS, THERE IS GRIM DETERMINATION TO SHAPE THE FUTURE TOWARD THE SORT OF LIFE WE WANT FOR THE WORLD. FOREWORD w S i feW BATTELLE ' MEAfMfAL Vi l — =8 oLJr. Aonn O. d5entleu V FOR TWENTY-THREE YEARS DR. JOHN E. BENTLEY HAS DEVOTED HIMSELF TO THE CAUSE OF AMERICAN UNIVERSITY, WITHOUT REGARD TO TIME OR COST TO HIMSELF. AS A PROFESSOR OF PSYCHOLOGY OR AS DEAN OF THE COLLEGE, THE POSITION HE NOW HOLDS, HE HAS EVER BEEN THE STUDENTS ' FRIEND AND COUNSELLOR. DR. BENTLEY, HAVING WATCHED THE COLLEGE FROM ITS BIRTH, IS NOW IN A POSITION TO HELP IT ADJUST TO THE GREAT CHANGES THAT EVERY COLLEGE IS EXPERIENCING DUE TO THE FLUX OF WAR. A KEEN OBSERVER OF THE EDUCATIONAL NEEDS OF THE COUNTRY HE COUPLES THIS WITH A BELIEF IN THE NECESSITY OF A FIRM MORAL AND SPIRITUAL ORIENTATION WHICH WE, AND ALL PEOPLES MUST HAVE TO FACE THE CHALLENGE OF THE FUTURE. THE COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES LOOKS FORWARD TO YEARS OF PROGRESS UNDER HIS GUIDANCE. Six oDr. Ljeorae (IS. l Uoods during the twenty-two years of service and guidance that dr. george b. woods has given to the college, he has consistently stood out as a leader of students, not only in the classroom but in the field of student activities. dr. wood as a member of the original faculty, as dean of the college, as a friend and guide to all who have known him, studied under him, and worked with him, has seen this campus grow from its small begin fgs in 1925, until today, as he resigns, a. u. has the largest enrollment in its history. throughout the years his teaching livls have always been held to high ideals of intellectual sty a m) scholarship. dr. woods has himself created a living mw ment to all that is fine and praiseworthy in american uniVersity. Seven II u I! A II P 11 s if m 4 v !H Us I! E A II T I F 11 L vJur -ArdminiitratL A COLLEGE CONSISTS OF THREE SEPARATE PARTS — STUDENTS, FACULTY AND ADMINISTRATION. THE FIRST TWO ARE PERHAPS THE MOST OUT- STANDING IN RESPECT TO THE FACT THAT THEY DEAL WITH THE MORE APPARENT AND IMMEDIATE ASPECTS OF COLLEGE LIFE. THERE IS, HOW- EVER, BASIC TO ANY WELL-RUN COLLEGE, THAT THIRD PART, THE ADMIN- ISTRATION. IT IS NOT LOVED OR FEARED FOR THE GRADES IT GIVES, OR FOR THE TEAMS IT MAKES, OR FOR THE ORGANIZATION IT RUNS. THE TOKEN OF SUCCESS FOR AN ADMINISTRATION IS ITS ANONYMITY — NOT AS INDIVIDUAL MEMBERS BUT AS A BODY. ITS JOB IS THAT OF COORDINATION, OF RESPONSIBILITY, OF DUTIES, OF BUSINESS DETAILS, AND SO ON, DOWN THE LIST OF MINUTIAE FOR WHICH IT IS RESPONSIBLE. FROM REGULAR STUDENTS TO THE U. S. NAVY, TO CADET NURSES, AND BACK TO REGULAR STUDENTS AGAIN, THE ADMINISTRATION, ITS EXECUTIVE AND BUSINESS BRANCHES HAVE KEPT A. U. STRAIGHT. TO DR. DOUGLASS GOES SPECIAL COMMENDATION FOR THE JOB HE HAS DONE IN HEADING THE UNIVERSITY DURING THESE TURBULENT TIMES. IN OUR ADMINISTRATION, THEN, WE RECOGNIZE THESE TRAITS THAT MARK THE SUCCESSFUL COLLEGE, AND WISH TO EXPRESS OUR APPRECIATION TO THOSE MEN AND WOMEN WHO HAVE MADE THE MECHANICS OF OUR COLLEGE RUN SO SMOOTHLY OVER OUR YEARS HERE. A II VI I V I S DR. PAUL F. DOUGLASS President of the University DR. JOHN E. BENTLEY Dean of the College and Professor of Psychology DR. ESTHER STRONG Dean of Women and Professor of Sociology T R A T I N FHDLIY WE SALUTE OUR FACULTY. WE SALUTE THEM AS OUR INSTRUCTORS AND OUR FRIENDS. AS CLEAR-SIGHTED BELIEVERS IN AMERICAN EDUCATION AS THE KEY TO AMERICAN LIFE, THEY HAVE GIVEN OF THEIR TIME AND EFFORTS TO MAKE CLEAR TO US THE TRUE MEANING OF A LIBERAL AND HIGHER EDUCATION IN MODERN LIFE.

I T I B S Uctrsitu L lub f The Men ' s Varsity Club, absent from the school during the war years, brought back into organization this year, is one of the oldest of clubs in the College. Qualifications for membership when this activity was first organized were that an applicant had to have earned at least two major letters. Due to the scarcity of those participants in major sports over the required length of time for this year only, during reorganization, the qualifications have been dropped to one major letter. The Varsity Club gives as outward token of its membership the College " A. " Although obviously an athletic organization it is very active in all phases of campus life, both as individual members and as the group. Until the Coffee Shoppe was moved to the Leonard Gym, the Club sold refresh- ment for the crowds of students and outsiders who came to the games. " A " Club has sponsored two dances this year, doing its own decorations and all the necessary details. Officers of the club are Bart Fugler, President; Bert Gaster, Secretary, and Charles Kligman, Treasurer. Its members consist of the following: Fred Carl, Staff Cassell, Leroy Doolittle, Joseph Hossick, Bob Lanzillotti, Bob Miller, Al Nencioni, Bob Nugent, Jim Petro, Edwin Rabbitt, Dutch Schultz, and Fred Sharrah. Fifty-four Uarditu d5adketbail With only three men, Captain Bart Fugler, Bert Gaster and Charlie Kligman, back from prewar days, Coach Staff Cassell faced the problem of producing a team out of what seemed at the time, his imagination. Most of the men out for the team had had previous experience, but hadn ' t played for three or four years. To add another note of sorrow, some of the men for w-hom Staff had high hopes dropped out of school. Even with these troubles, the Eagles showed that they had the makings of a good, if not great, team. Slowly ironing out the kinks of years of inactivity on the court, they started to show great individual ability. Another much needed addition in the form of George Lafferty joined the team half-way through the season. In spite of the fact that they lost games, the Eagles looked progressively better and better. They showed that they could play ball with the best in the country, and play as a team. They also announced that with most of the team, two of them, Fred Fling and George Lafferty placing on the Mason Dixon All-Star team, returning next year they will be a team to watch. The outstanding games of the season consisted of those with City College of New York, Virginia Tech, Bucknell University, Western Maryland and Loyola.

Coach Hugo " Dutch " Schultz, aided and abetted with a talented group, showed that the Varsity team might well look to the Eaglets for some excellent reserve strength for next year ' s season. Playing some of the best squads in their class, the JV ' s ended the season as a highly polished, well synchronized and respected team. With Chuck Boothby leading the scoring parade, well sup- ported by such men as Al Nencioni, Dick Hite, Joe Hickson, Joe Hossick, Blackie Selwyn, Ken Brown, Jay Rider, Bernie Gittleson and Jack Neer, the Eaglets probably had their best moment when they avenged the two Pennsylvania road trip losses with a great splurge of offensive power for the rest of the year. Although the team had many individual stars, they undoubtedly had the all important characteristic of a winning group; they played as a team. As the season progressed, more and more people began com- ing out to the J.V. games which occasionally preceded those of the varsity. This in itself is a tribute to the fine season that this cocky, hardworking group of players contributed to the activities of our University. Aunior Uarsitu ( basketball Captain AL NENCIONI Coach HUGO SCHULTZ Manager HARRY CASTERLIN Fifty-eighi s ivimmin 9 Captain JOHN BRIGGS Coach JOE HOLLON Manager STEVE BECKER Last Fall, when the Navy abandoned its pool on our Campus, plans were immediately formulated for a swimming team, meets scheduled, and swimmers recruited. In its infant year, a champion- ship team was turned out. A.U. ' s mermen were undefeated in six dual meets, took second place in the Mason Dixon Conference Meet, and acquired top honors in the Metropolitan Washington Invitational Intercollegiate meet. Comprising the first A.U. swimming team were : Free styleers — Lewis Hedges, Tex Carter, Art Butler, Lewis LaFever, Fred Carl, Jim Evans, Willard Smith; Back strokers — John Briggs, Phil Dixon; Breast strokers — Ken Hiltz, Pete Covert, John Backman, Ken Cowan; Diving — Carter, Clifford. Particularly outstanding were: Hedges, Capt. Briggs, Hiltz, and Carter. In the conference meet at Newark, Delaware, the Eagles " knocked " the confidence out of the heavily favored Delaware team by taking a close second. This was the first M-D swim meet in conference history. On March 22 the Junior National AAU highboard diving championship for men was held in conjunction with the DC AAU swimming championships in our pool. On March 28 and 29 A.U. was host to the first annual Metro- politan Invitational Inter-Scholastic and Inter-Collegiate Swimming Meet. The A.U. swimmers appropriately ended their season by copping the team trophy and the majority of the individual awards in the collegiate division of this meet. The Eagles amassed 73 points to 40 for runnerup George Washington. Catholic U. was third with 39 points, Colu mbia Tech scored 6, and Georgetown 1. Our new Track Coach, Joe Carlo, was practically swamped in the spring when the call went out for material. The number of men reporting gave A.U. one of its greatest track teams. The team was built largely around veteran Captain Al Nencioni. The squad consisted of Al ' Gross, Fred Heitzinger and Chuck Hudson in the shot-put; Bob Lundmark, Eric Peacher and Larry Bethel in the pole vault; Fred Fling and Glenn Anderson for the high jump; Bob Lundmark and John Dasselous in the high hurdles; Al Nencioni, Ed Manouelian, Eric Peacher, Fletcher Atkins and Dick Nowakowski for the 100 yard dash; Eugene Betts, Ken Leikari. Henry Schaffer and Guy Anselmo ran the mile; Henry Schaffer and Guy Anselmo ran in the two mile events; Stanley Betts, Dick Davis, Brindley Longshore, Stan Adelson, Tex Griffin, Dick Bau- man and Harry Spalding specialized in the 440; Al Gross, Fred Heitzinger, Chuck Hudson and Glenn Anderson threw the discus; Al Nencioni, Bob Lundmark, Leslie Rushbrook and Glenn Ander- son for the broad jump; Leslie Rushbrook, John Dassalous and John Koutsandios in the 220 hurdles; Al Nencioni, Dick Nowakow- ski, Leslie Rushbrook, Bob DiChaira and John Dassalous in the 220 dash; Glenn Anderson and Al Nencioni threw the javelin; Guy Anselmo, John Owens, Francis Kendrick, Cliff Grohsgal and Dick Mather ran the 880. The team competed in the 175th Regimental Games, Penn Relays, Metropolitan A. A.U. Games and the Mason Dixon Conference Meet. This gave the track team a very success- ful season. Jrach Captain AL NENCIONI Coach JOE CARLO Manager HARRY CASTERLIN Pv P 9 P • g a p !eyau p % The 1947 boxing team spent most of its time preparing for the future. Coach Jim Petro scheduled only one match for this year and that primar- ily was to give experience to what looked like a potentially fine squad. This match was with the Kings Point team, reputed to be one of the finest in the country. Coach Petro was more than satisfied with the show- ing made. Handling the different weights were: Jim Duley at 120 lbs., Cliff Grohsgal. 135, Danny Hollon, 145, Paul Hubbard, 165, Bob Mevers, 155. Henry Shaffer, 130 and Ed Sul- livan at 175. The boys spent most of their time sparring with each other and if they are in as good shape next year at least eight matches will be scheduled. A great point in this team ' s favor is that all of the men will be back next September, even more determined to wind up on top of a good season. This is a team from which we can expect great things. • ■ K oxin 9 With the trend at American University to get the athletic department back to cover the complete field of sports, Coach " Dutch " Schultz found himself in a gratify- ing position when he surveyed the prospects for the Tennis Team of 1947. He found very good reasons for the power displayed on the courts of A.U., Bob Miller, number one on the A.U. team in 1944, Public Parks champ in 1945 and winner against Army in 1946, played number one position. Ted Rubin, who alternated at the number one and number three positions at Cornell K 1 last year, was also outstanding this spring. Leroy Doolittle returned ; some will remember that Leroy played tennis here way back in 1943. Britt Schweitzer, another returnee, won the Evening Star Tournament in 1941, and was chosen as the six- teenth boy player in the country. Jack Lescure was a top flight per- former on the courts of his home state of Virginia. Bob Wildermuth, a former Prep school star, also gave a good account of himself in this, his first year here. Adding support to the team were Nelson Aters, Bill Cowan, [ ' »• Holley, fay Rider and Plank. 3 ennid v Woman $ rthleticS t ( tub " A " Club is the women ' s local sports honorary. Membership to this club is based upon participation in extra-curricular varsity and intramural athletics. Thus for a woman to become eligible she must show interest as well as skill. A woman becomes a member after the accumulation of 350 points received for actual participation in, or management of, sports. After this there are awards given by " A " Club for more accumulated points, but the first 350 are the pre-requisite to membership. All points are voted on and approved by " A " Club before being awarded. Its members are proud that it is more than an honor, for in sponsoring the athletic activities of the Department, they show that their membership entails certain responsibilities of service and leadership. The club appoints the manager of each sport and a report is demanded of her at the end of the season. In March, " A " Club had as the speaker at its banquet, the Assistant Director of the American Youth Hostels. All there were left with a case of wanderlust. So, from archery in the Fall to Tennis in the Spring, it has been a full year and a good one. Sixty-two war situ ( ashetbali v Using as practice training the long period of the intersorority basketball tourna- ment, the Women ' s Varsity Basketball team got off to a very quick start this year. At the end of the intramural practices a list of selected players was posted from which the team was formed. Other interested girls could and did come out to make the team. One of the main points in practice was to get a quicker coordination in passes and pivots and above all to train the forwards against man-to-man defensive play. The A.U. team played a zone defense that was very satisfactory, but instruction in man-to-man was necessary for most of the team ' s opponents used this latter form of defense. All of the training paid off for the team had a successful year. True they lost games; but some of them were against the physical education major squads of Maryland U. and George Washington U. The long and short of it among the girls were forwards, Kathleen Stephens and Phyllis Alting. Eleanor Latimer became famous for her " swish " shots and among the guards, Peggy McFar- land, Peggy Peoples, Liz Ferber and many others kept the opponent covered. Next year prospects are bright as only a few of the team are graduating, leaving the main strength in the underclasses. s wimmin 9 This year the Women ' s Athletic Department has inaugurated an experiment which has proved highly successful. So many of the girls in the regular swimming classes expressed such a strong interest in doing regular team w : ork, that the physical education instructors decided to take these girls, outstanding swimmers, and devote separate time to the training and formation of a swimming group. It is probably the most altruistic effort ever to take place in College Athletics, for it is not a regular team and its status is only that of an intramural sport. As a result the girls omit diving. In addition their swimming is not done in regulation " lengths " but merely by lengths of the pool. The strictly intramural status does not stop the women from having great enthusiasm; and wet hair, a badge of their activity which is becoming more and more frequent around the campus. Although they are not a regular team and do not swim regulation events, they have found other nearby colleges ready and willing to participate with them. Meets with Trinity College, Mt. Vernon Junior College, and the University of Maryland were scheduled early. Results showed a very successful season and bore out the purpose of the group — to teach perfection of swimming technique; to learn the essentials of " meet " regulations; and above all to get pleasure out of swimming. Sb, ramaucd tu Men again, oh . . . (followed by complete collapse of all those who have struggled along over the past years, trying to find plays with " not too many men ' s parts, please! " ) The joy of it! The joy of it turned into " Kiss and Tell " and by all results the audience, which packed Leonard Gym, enjoyed it hugely. Under the able direction of Miss Mary Frances Miller, the cast really worked together beautifully — even down to Jim Eden ' s dog which, despite many anxious moments, barked on the right cues and generally looked as if he were having a good time. Everyone turned in stellar performances. Mike Roth did a convincing Corliss; ditto Bob Stephens as Dexter, (the cast promptly predicted laryngitis as a result) ; Flo Lyman as Mrs. Archer: Jim Eden as her husband; Sylvia Mitchell as the irrepressible Raymond, who thought everything was so dumb; Betty Gillespie as Mildred, who was the cause of all the mixup ; and so on down through a competent cast. Sylvia had just as much fun with the shoulder pads as the audience did, as they broke into her dialogue more than once to applaud her. The props were excellent. All in all, it was a big success — even the paper said so. In the spring the Shakespearian play came around this year, " The Merry Wives of Windsor " which was given as usual in the outdoor Shakespearian theatre. The Art Guild, a group of students interested in art as a medium of expression in modern society, set as their fixed purpose the pro- motion and enlightenment of student interest on the campus in art as such, and in the activities of the Art Department. As the latter has brought works and news of art to the students through the Watkins Memorial Gallery with representative shows of prints and paintings, and with examples of Negro sculpture, the Art Guild decided to represent the more social aspects of the Department. As a result the Guild was represented at the Hallowe ' en Bazaar with an auctioneer ' s booth where student-artists ' paintings were sold and cartoons done on the spot. In the Spring the members put forth their greatest efforts into an Arts Ball, open to all university students. The Art Guild kept themselves in the news with the Eagle column, " Off The Palette, " and a radio program on the campus station devoted to stories of the Great Artists and opinions and ideas on art.

With this to inspire plus capable direction under Mr. McLain, chorus settled down to the work of the weekly chapel programs plus mastering a repertoire to give at the many concerts of the year. Programs were given at Radio Stations WINX and WTOP. The latter was a coast-to-coast hook-up and despite the fact that everyone had colds, not one single cough reg- istered. The Christmas Concert was highlighted by an overloaded tree that fell, doing no damage, amongst the tenors. The next program took the group to Howard U. The concert schedule ended with the Spring recital, an appropriate finale to a year of hard work. Chapel programs must be remembered here, and a vote of thanks goes to Mr. Romaine. who played the organ so beautifully for the choir. a opus F. BAKER, J. BARKER, B. BERGMANN, M. BIRDSALL, T.

The first big event of the ye ar was the " Dad ' s Day " program on Sunday, November 1 7, high- lighted by the awarding of prizes for the best rooms in each dormitory. Individual student approach to matters of current importance in religion were encouraged by Sunday evening discussions in Great Hall during the fall semester. Later, the SCF took charge of the Combined Charities Drive and succeeded in raising more than $700.00 which was distributed according to student preferences among various charitable organizations. For Christ- mas the SCF took charge of the Banquet and Choral Concert. At the SCF banquet March 3, Henrietta Roosenburg of Holland was the guest speaker, where she told of her experiences with the underground movement and of her confinement to a concentration camp. On March 24, a Starvation Banquet was held on behalf of the Church World Service Center. Articles of clothing wire the price of admission, the clothing being forwarded to needy families in Europe. All during the spring semester, a series of Tues- day and Thursday Luncheon Devotions were held whir h were well attended.

Representation to this Council is by class, a man and a woman beine chosen for each of the three upper-classes. The Freshman representatives are chosen in the fall. The officers of the Council are elected from among the Junior Class the term running for the calendar year. To secure a more adequate presenta- tion of all interests on the campus, the Council has as advisory bodies, the various boards, such as Publications, Religion, Social, Athletic, etc., who within their fields act as directors of all connected campus activites. Representatives to these boards are also by class and the group itself has a delegate to College Council. Thus student interests and activities are co-ordinated into an organization that can adequately represent their needs to administration and faculty and within its own jurisdiction carry out its powers to the benefit of the entire campus. This year the Council was quite active. It had the beneht ot an able administration under two capable chief executives, Frank LaFontaine, who transferred in September to Columbia University and Gordon Cowan who so ably stepped into his position. More students than ever necessitated an even wider field of cooperation to fit them all into the college scene. The opening of the new Student Union building took much of the Council ' s time. To this location were moved the Coffee Shop and Book Store. Offices in the building were assigned to the college publications and to the Student President and Student Comptroller. Student activities were thus centralized in one building. The creation of a new publicity board was a step taken by the Council toward organized dissemina- tion of publicity on all student activities. The year ended on a note of improvement and the entire Council looks forward to an even better year in the fall. Seventy-two Administration DR. DOUGLASS DR. BENTLEY Faculty DR. BATCHELDER MR.

The result was the Inter- dormitory Council. As might be supposed, the most urgent problem was to integrate the four new men ' s dormitories into the college environment with as little friction as possible. With so many new students on campus, it was seen that the sooner certain tradition-setting rules were put into operation and understood by the entire student body, the sooner A.U. would have well regulated college life. To this end ideas were pooled on rules and regulations for the various dormitories that would work in well with other existing rules. Problems of one house were solved more easily, it was found, if brought before representatives who could give objective and disinterested views. Halfway through the first semester it was found that one group on campus was not represented, the veterans apartments. Although this was an Interdoimitory Council a representative was invited for this group. Of course the first year was spent to a great extent in the formation of plans but next year, the groundwork having been completed, the Council looks forward to more efficient solutions of campus problems. The dormitories represented on this Council are Mary Graydon Hall, Clark, Flint, Hamilton, Hughes and McDowell Houses. uss And lell lo Be Presented Dec. 1 _ ._ Muriel Roth, Robert Steven 11 llO S 11 WwOttna Be Play Corliss And Dexter Ro HP P H mdlelight Service Climaxes « , stive Christmas Activities -Av Uirshall Welcomes Students [alone, Nugent, Jones To Be ?Il Skf rat " FiX » Assembly |f v ' } i " tu s Washington Semester Begins Completion 1 ?} Eventful Christmas Week Planned _. . „ Eden, Mrs. and " j ,V .re ' « « Mnheller i ef« oe a Befa we» known v cV f »- Interfra " " " •• 4. r V k - in w rr, r, , their ch " » V - ,n P ast December ' ' .« V LM ' If) laps I en Students a. u Xy other cast the Kenr vt- firi . r mer V „ Cowan Bet . 9:00 t.

Due to the scarcity of microscopes we wondered just what we could do to get everything in and everyone satisfied. But then, as we stopped to think it all over, we decided that no one ever pleased everyone anyway, so we became a little more cheerful and rolled up our sleeves. One of the big things on our collective minds was — who will we get to print the book, as we definitely wanted someone who would work with us and co-operate with us. The happy solution to all our problems came when we contracted with the Clark Printing Company to publish the book. We feel it only just to say that with- out the helpful suggestions and constructive criticisms of Mr. Clark and Mr. Flammer, the engraver, the yearbook would never have worked out as well as it has. Once we had that behind us, we started thinking about just what we did want — a definitely new space arrangement, more space to activities, better pictures all around, a certain distinctive touch and so on into the night. The light in the AUCOLA office burned into the wee small hours and information by telephone became the latest innovation. Aspirin and coke bottles began to compete with the typewriter for space. Editors Chuck and Blossom regularly knocked their heads together fixing the layout (which we all think is strictly tops and with which we hope you will agree). Finally everything was in and the book was out — thanks to all those guys and gals whose names may or may not appear in print but without whose help and encouragement the AUCOLA would never have reached the publishers ' desk. So here for your bouquets of roses and or thorns we present the 1947 AUCOLA. Pleasant browsing. Seventy-six Staff CHARLES B.

Editor, Editor, Editor, yes Tolley our 1943 chief has returned. There was never a moment without doubt, never a perfect issue, never an edition according to schedule. First is was " Letters to the Editor, " then the insane idea of a full page of pictures with no advertising and no money. After the decision of the Publications Board it was advertising and more advertising, money plus, more pages with pictures galore. The Christmas issue turned out to be a herculean task. Besides the factor of a blizzard there was the big secret of MGH best-loved girl, with hidden page proofs complicated by a slip of the tongue. Would, could, B. Winograd keep the secret? All during the year there were the issues of the telephone and the Art Department. Close that door, PLEASE! Midway of semester, the Eagle took a poll that revealed that most students agreed to disagree. Not confining itself purely to print, the Eagle entered the realm of politics to sponsor Frank Pierce. " Who is this fellow Pierce? " " Is he a student here? " Politics, Politics extras and more politics went on into the night. The Eagle also took advantage of the adjoining music rooms to indulge in piano. Bach, Beethoven and Bernie ' s humor became known campus wide. When February came, Tolley stepped out and Levin stepped in, bringing more semblance of organization and embroiling in campus issues. This, then, was the American University Eagle. In true, trite Eagle style, its name rings true to every journalist and or staff member who skipped classes, attended its midnight sessions, or did any part of its day and night work.

Art by Lacita Gregg livened up the many pages of informa- tion for the " Frosh. " A vote of thanks goes to the printer, Mr. Thomas, who so patiently read the many galleys and got the book together. K heerlecidi erS Cheerleader KEN JONES A new, bigger gym, a fine team, and plenty of students, created a most pleas- ing situation for this year ' s Cheer- leaders. Under the direction of Ken Jones; Helen DiBiasi, Jim Duley, Lenore Johnson, Betty Mehring, and Mike Roth, did their energetic bests to give A.U. the old but not worn out " college try " spirit. Ken Jones, his pro- file, and his V for victory sign became famous — ditto the drummer. Helen DiBiasi carried on alone at the CCNY game with the aid of the many exuber- ant A.U.-ites. The squad has really done a fine job of raising enthusiasm and next year look forward to even bigger crowds and better routines. At home games from, " Come on Orange, Come on Blue " to " Give a Yell, " the Leonard Gym echoed to the sound of spirited students. I) I!

As a consequence there are nine honoraries on campus covering a variety of fields. Members of these groups feel it their responsibility as members of these organiza- tions to take a leading part in any campus activity connected with their group. Omicron Delta Kappa, National Senior men ' s honorary, just recently became active on campus after a two years ' forced absence. This organization represents men of high scholarship and active service to the university. Cap and Gown, Local Senior women ' s honorary, also elects to membership on the basis of loyalty, service and high scholarship. The College Honor Society reward for scholarship alone is the Amer- ican University equivalent of Phi Beta Kappa. Alpha Psi Omega, youngest honorary, recognizes faithful service and outstanding ability in dramatics. Beta Beta Beta marks top honors in the field of biology. For meritorious work over a period of years in college publications, there is the national journalistic fraternity, Pi Delta Epsilon. Students of high scholastic average and a penchant for the social sciences are tapped semi-annually to Pi Gamma Mu. The Poetry Club, formerly the national, Omicron Epsilon Pi, taps to its membership all those who show a talented interest in things poetic. The distinction of being elected to " Who ' s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges " is given to those Juniors and Seniors who have made outstanding contributions to the University.

I ARLAND, JANE NICHOLS, ELIZABETH RICHARDSON I n je r I anhelienic Council The Panhellenic Council, governing body of relations between all women ' s Greek letter fraternities on the campus, was fared with one of the biggest problems in all its history when more than one hundred women went through the fall rush season. Many months of discussion and planning have resulted in a revision of rush rules. Due to great conflicts in schedules, the Council was forced to meet at the early hour of 8:30 A. M. for its regular meetings. The big issue for first semester « JS the amount of room rent for the sorority rooms. The Administration finally decided upon the amount of $100 for the calendar year from September to Sep- tember. On December 13 the " Interfrat " came off beautifully. Panhellenic thanks the Interfraternity Council for supplying the room, the orchestra, and the tickets. The " quota " as of the new semester was raised to thirty and " Panhel " had visions of big chapters once more. In January there was a combined meeting with the advisory board chairmen. In April the annual Greek Retreat was held. This same month also saw the new members and new officers take over. Song Fest was held with a prize going to the winning sorority. At commencement, the year closed as the Panhellenic Cup was presented to the Freshman sorority woman who had had the highest grade average for the two semesters. OFFICERS President JEANNE LEAR I ' it e-President BARBARA SIMMONS Secretary BETTY KOENIG Treasurer JOYCE GOCHENOUR Jhe nterff xiernih y (council OFFICERS President KARL MANN Set n tary-Treasurer FREDERICK CARL The Interfraternity Council is charged with the tasks of maintaining harmonious relationships between the University and men ' s fraternities, and the managing of all affairs that pertain to these organizations. Guided by its faculty advisor and friend, Dr. Marshall, it proudly points to a better relationship existing between fraternities than ever before. In a year of full schedules, Alpha Kappa Pi became Alpha Sigma Phi by the merger of the new nationals. A smooth and successful rushing season followed by a record pledging. Together with the Panhellenic Council, " Interfrat " sponsored the traditional Interfraternity Prom on December 13th. A good orchestra and ballroom combined to make it one of the best in many years. A new " land mark " was made, when, after months of debate and of raising quotas, the latter were finally abolished. So far the " no-quota " system has worked very successfully. In March, the first interfraternity stag party was given; its success bringing about still closer relationships. In April a cup was awarded this year ' s songfest winner. Among the new customs established during the year were a cup to the fraternity with the highest scholastic average and another to the one with the best intramural record.

Founded at the Wesleyan Women ' s College, Macon, Georgia, in 1852, as the Philo- mathean Society, it celebrated its ninety-fifth birthday this year. The local Gamma Delta Chapter was chartered here in 1933, and was the first National Panhellenic group on the campus. The Phi Mu badge is a shield of gold with black enamel ; the colors are pink and white ; and the flower is the Enchantress carnation. In addition to its campus activities, it is the policy of the fraternity to engage in works of charitable and a social service nature. The national organization maintains a health- mobile, giving medical attention to people living in Georgia. All through the war Phi Mu aided many of the national service committees, especially the Red Cross. This chapter has been helping a nearby orphanage, and during the present year has furnished a complete doll house for their recreational facilities. Ninety-two I i«r .

This fraternity was one of the seven groups which founded the National Panhellenic Council in 1902. Since then sixty-nine chapters have been founded. The local chapter, Beta Epsilon, was established here in 1936 when the local Epsilon Kappa went national. There were eight charter members. The Delta Gamma badge is a gold anchor with a white shield; the colors are bronze, pink and blue; and the flower is a cream-colored rose. In the field of philanthropy and social service, the fraternity has a program of " Aid to the Blind and Sight Conservation " plus a project on International Education. Beta Epsilon and the Washington alumni chapter this year sold chances on a car, the proceeds of which would go towards the funds for these programs. Delta Gamma ' s bi-annual conven- tion was held during the summer of 1946 at Pasadena, California.

Alpha Chi Omega, the seventh Greek-letter women ' s fraternity to be organized, was founded at DePauw University in 1885. Unique among women ' s fraternities, it was founded by a group of music students as a musical fraternity. Rapid expansion to other colleges made it imperative to allow liberal arts students to pledge. Today it numbers seventy chapters and more than twenty-three thousand members. The local chapter, Beta Rho, was installed on this campus in 1936 with nineteen members. Alpha Chi ' s have chosen for their badge a Greek lyre, encrusted with pearls. Their colors are scarlet and olive green. During the war the national organization ran many day nurseries, and through the years has endowed an artists ' studio at the home of the famous composer, Edward MacDowell. The local chapter is engaged this year in recreational work for the District Children ' s Receiving Home. The fraternity holds its convention this year at the Chateau-Frotenac in Quebec.

Kappa Delta, National Panhcllcnic Sorority, was founded at the Virginia State Teachers College at Farmvillc, Virginia, on October 23, 1897. Sixty-seven chapters located over the U. S. now make up the active membership. This June the sorority will celebrate its golden anniversary at its bi-annual convention held at Virginia Beach. The sorority colors are emerald green and white; the jewels ar e the emerald and the pearl: and the flower is the white rose. The local chapter, Beta Iota, was installed on this campus on April 3, 1943, making it the newest Panhellcnic group on campus. Before its installation as a national sorority it existed as a local sorority, known as Sigma Phi Delta. Characteristic of all Panhellenic groups, Kappa Delta has its philanthropic projects, one of which is aid to the Children ' s Hospital in Washington, D. C. The local chapter participates by gifts of money and toys. The National Organization maintains beds in the Crippled Children ' s Hospital in Rich- mond, Virginia.

In 1929, the Epsilon Triton Chapter of Phi Sigma Kappa was established on the American University campus as the local fraternity, Phi Beta Zeta. Eight years later, it became the first national fraternity established at the University, with a charter membership of twelve. Phi Sigma Kappa, itself, was founded in 1873 and has grown to have over fifty chapters. The fraternity colors, by which it is identified, are silver and magenta. The flower is the red carnation. After a year of reactivation since the war, Epsilon Triton now has thirty members. This year ' s activities were characterized by readjustment to the postwar situation. Old members returned to A.U. and new members were initiated. Headquarters is the house on Fraternity Hill, scene of formal meetings and social gatherings. This year there were meetings, parties, dances, initiation, and sports; all coupled with a good deal of hard work, dedicated to the ideals of Phi Sigma Kappa; Brotherhood, Scholarship, and Character.

Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity was founded at Richmond, Virginia, September 11, 1865. The first chapter was established at Virginia Military Institute that same year. Although the early expansion of the organization was restricted to the South, it was the first Southern Fraternity to establish chapters in the Northern States. The official publication of ATO is The Palm. Other features of ATO include ATO ' s national placement service, a Career Booklet, and a Vocational and Veteran ' s Advisory Board. ATO has ninety-five active chapters in the United States and one hundred and three alumni associations. The fraternity colors are azure and gold; the flower, the white tea rose. The Epsilon Iota chapter was formerly the local fraternity, Alpha Theta Phi, founded November 23, 1928. Last February the old Alpha Theta Phi house, used during the war by the U. S. Bomb Disposal School, was returned to the fraternity and was promptly remodeled for the chapter ' s use.

Alpha Sigma Phi fraternity, founded at Yale University in 1845, is the tenth oldest national men ' s fraternity. Today it has twenty-eight thousand members in seventy-three chapters all over the United States. Before the consolidation of the fraternity Alpha Kappa Pi, the local chapter which was founded as the local frater- nity Phi Epsilon Alpha in January of 1937, became the Alpha Iota chapter of Alpha Kappa Pi on May 30, 1940. Then, when in September, 1946, Alpha Kappa Pi and Alpha Sigma Phi agreed to merge their national organizations, the newly formed fraternity took the name of the latter group and the chapter at American University became the Beta Chi chapter of Alpha Sigma Phi. After being inactive for three years due to the war, Alpha Sigma Phi, returning to its chapter house on campus, has been able to re-condition it for fraternity use. The fraternity ' s colors are stone and cardinal. The flower is the Talisman rose. One Hundred Four C. c. Coat, Towel Apron Supply Co. INC. 2122 L STREET, N. W. WASHINGTON, D. C.
