TODAY WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF REBUILDING THAT CIVILIZATION — A CIVILIZATION WHOSE FOUNDATION MUST BE BUILT ON TRUTH, BEAUTY, PEACE, FREEDOM AND BROTHERHOOD. TOGETHER WE HAVE PASSED THROUGH THE YEARS, SHOULDERING THE BURDEN OF TIME ACROSS THE SPAN FROM YOUTH TO MATURITY. THROUGH A DEEP AWARENESS OF OUR DEPENDENCE UPON OUR UNIVERSITY, OUR FELLOW- MEN, AND OUR GOD, WE WILL HELP BUILD OUR NATION, OUR CIVILIZATION. AND OUR WORLD. DEDICATION TO CHARLES M. CLARK, LOYAL FRIEND AND TEACHER, THE STAFF RESPECTFULLY DEDICATES THE 1948 AUCOLA. THROUGH HIS FRIENDLY SMILE, WE KNOW THAT THE SPLENDID CHAR- ACTER WHICH IS HIS, IS LEAVING A GUIDING MARK UPON THIS CAMPUS, AND THROUGH THE YEARS IT WILL SERVE AS AN INSPIRATION TO ALL WHO KNOW HIM. MARY GRAYDDIV HALL THE ADMINISTRATION PRESIDENT The Class of 1948 began its course in mid World War II. It continued its study through victory, post war adjustment, and into the period of intense struggle of ideologies. No preceding class has endured such periods of accelerated change or human dislocation. Your experience should make you conscious of the tragedy which western culture faces as well as the obligations of Americans amid their opportunities. The American University expects of you the leadership which is necessary to make our nation discharge its high purpose in the world order in which we are now permanently involved. PAUL F. DOUGLASS, Preside tit. Eight Photographs are concrete memories that last. As time passes they become antiques of value revealing what we were in an interval of time. Here, in this volume, you are yourself today, as are your colleagues, your teachers. Tomorrow we shall change for better or for worse in life ' s adventure. Preserve these por- traits as of yesterday and look forward to what you may become — better in fitness to live, keener in mind to achieve, nobler in soul to contribute values for which the world waits. JOHN E. BENTLEY. Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. DEANS This Aucola will mean more to you in years to come than mere pictures of friends, scores of games or reviews of activities. It will repre- sent another stage in the development of your- self and your alma mater. It is a graphic record of your contribution to the life of your College. Congratulations for a job well done! EVELYN SKILLINGTON, Dean of Women. Nine First row: Mr. Narber, Mrs. Dade, Mrs. Thomas, Mrs. Freeman, Mrs. McClure, Miss Hopson.

THE ADMINISTRATION As it takes more than a house to make a home, so it takes more than a student body to make an educational institution. The administration, fac- ulty, and students should be thought of inclusively as the composition of the University. The administration is keenly interested in the future. Their duty is to prepare students for life following college years. The kind of men and women that will control the country in the next few years is determined to a large extent by the university from which they graduate. This year that duty was a difficult one. With men of all ages returning to the campus and the enlarged enrollment, the problem was a difficult one to solve. Mistakes were made but each emerged wiser and more assured of what The American University has to offer. Wisdom and experience, personified in this group of administra- tors, helped to guide us through our years at A.U. They encouraged us to realize and cherish the Ideals of the University.

This Senior Class, 1948, is not a typical class; it is unique. It is made up of members of the classes of ' 41, ' 42, even of ' 46. There is no typical Senior. The vets returned to the campus in the Sophomore year in full force, and gradually filled in the ranks until it reached its present size. Dis- cussion centered around the benefits of P.L. 346 . . . Summer school enrollment jumped. The A.U. campus was a cool retreat in the midst of a sizzling Washington. The vet was anxious to " finish up. " In 1947, the class, Seniors now, could pause and take a look back, and forward too. The lessons in the classrooms at Hurst Hall had become more vital. Social problems were discussed in Sociology 302; they were encountered on campus. The supply and demand curve of Economics 406 proved more than a theory on $65 a month. From time immemorial profound words have been said by Senior classes in bestowing their heritage, and challenging their successors. Our heritage is rich. We bequeath that to you, taking full measure ourselves. Twenty WILLIAM A. AIKIX WASHINGTON, D. C. ENGLISH Publ. Bd., 2, 3; Chm.

MYATT President MARY ADA FRANK Vice President BARBARA HUEY Secretary RICHARD MATHER Treasurer The Class of 1949 has a history not unlike that of many other Junior classes today. Almost all the members of the class are accelerated Sophomores and returned veterans, but in spite of this, a strong group feeling has developed during the years. Having conquered the traditional freshman ' s quandry and sophomore ' s slump, the Juniors set out in the fall to conduct themselves in the approved upper class decorum. However, for one reason or another, the dignity was never long maintained. The freedom from war-time restric- tions was just too tempting and the sedate Juniors were replaced by the College Joes and Jills. The Junior week-end, at the end of April, was the highlight of the social season. The Junior Prom was perhaps the most successful dance of the year and was enjoyed by the members of all four classes. Now that the penultimate year has passed, the Juniors are looking forward to the greatest year yet to come when they can wear the long awaited title of " SENIOR.

Last year ' s unwieldy freshman class developed into a promising group of sophisticated sophomores who wire already looking at the new- freshmen and feeling old and worldly wise. We gave the freshmen a little of a hard time but pretty much let them go to the same easy way we had gone ourselves. Right away we held sophomore elections and settled down to a working year — not forgetting a due amount of play, of course. Big event of the sophomore calendar was the " Basket Ball " held in early March in honor of the team. By popular opinion this year is the best A.U. has ever had, and the class of ' 50 is confidently- looking forward to two more years, even bigger and better.

The evening culminated in a dance, which served as an opportunity for those who were new at " A.U. " to meet other students. " With January our activities centered about the Snow Ball, the traditional Freshman dance, at which the Snow Queen and her court were chosen. Spring brought plans for the election of an Onion Queen on Campus Day, who acted as Jester in the court of the Campus Queen.

Wacker VARSITY CLUB OFFICERS JOHN WAKEFIELD President AL NENCIONI Vice-President DICK MATHER Secretary LEROY DOOLITTLE Treasurer Under the able leadership of President John Wakefield, the men ' s honorary athletic organization experienced a most successful season, increasing its membership five-fold over the 1946 reorganization nucleus of seven men. To become a member one must hold two athletic awards; be at least a second-semester sophomore; main- tain and display, both on and off the playing field or court, an attitude of fair play and good sportsmanship; and uphold a cumulative grade average of " C " or better. The Men ' s Varsity Club serves to organize the lettermen of A.U. into a forcible group for the purpose of stimulating interest in student athletic participation, creating and fostering a more sportsman-like attitude between rival groups, making the visit of outside teams more enjoyable, and promoting all programs for general school betterment. Fifty-eight VARSITY BASKETBALL Take a handfull of last season leftovers; add four transfer stars and a trio of spirited frosh; now, extract two of the stars along with a veteran squad captain, and mix until smooth running. What have you got? A ball club of championship caliber. This may not be the recipe that Coach Staff Cassell would recommend for good results but nevertheless, it was the one " Pop " found himself with as the ' 48 season progressed. Ralph Benson, Freddie Fling, Bart Fugler, Tex Griffin, Jackie Neer, Jay Rider, Bill Tanney, and Johnny Wakefield returned to bolster this season ' s aggregation; while Reggie Crockett, Don Hillock, Bob Lamon, and Pete Negley transferred to A.U., bringing with them outstanding records. Bradford, Pa. donated freshmen Leroy Ishman and Packie Morris to the cause, and frosh Ronnie Garshag also saw first string action. The Eagles played exceptionally good ball against City College, Muhlenberg, and the University of Connecticut, though coming out on the short end of the score at each attempt. As the season progressed, conference hopes were bright until player-coach disputes effected the loss of Fugler, Crockett, and Hillock. Despite this deficit, a new spirit emerged, sending the Orange and Blue straight to the final game of the Mason-Dixon Conference where the squad met defeat at the hands of Lovola. First row: J.

Coach HUGO " DUTCH " SCHULZE Manager JOHN WHALEN Coach " Dutch " Schulze may well be proud of his smooth-running, hard-fighting Eaglets, who not only ended up first in the league but went on to conquer the Mason-Dixon Conference crown by subduing a scrappy Catholic U. outfit, 38-36. A glance over Jayvee statistics shows a 15 conference game winning streak over the past two-year period and a 1 7 won - 9 lost total for the ' 47- ' 48 season. Directing the quintet from the floor were co-captains Al Nencioni and Dick Hite. Jim Boothby, Don Essex, Jim Kranking, Bill Patten, Steve Dalsheim and Si Balchun made up the rest of the squad. Competitors met the AUites under the banners of Georgetown, Western Mary- land, Loyola, Catholic U., Randolph-Macon, William and Mary (of Norfolk), and BullK Devittj and Woodward Prep. Teamwork was the keynote of the J. V. Basketball Season and the fans really enjoyed watching the brand of ball that the Schulzcmen played, as was made apparent by the steady increase in preliminary attendance as the season progressed. Sixty-two SWIMMING Coach BERT COURAGE Manager STEVE BECKER Under the newly-established mentorship of Bert Courage, the A.U. mermen set about to maintain the championship label they were awarded in their inaugural year of 1947 as a result of copping second place in the Mason-Dixon Conference and top honors in the Metropolitan Washington Invitational. Carrying the orange and blue into collegiate aquatic relations were : Free style — Art Butler, Gus Culberson, Bud LaFever, and Larry LaFever; Breast stroke — Ken Hiltz, Tony Inglis, and Jim Patten; Back stroke — Johnny Briggs, Phil Dixon, and Carl Tinkham; Divers — Tex Carter and Ted Hines. La Salle, Loyola, and Johns Hopkins provided the stiffest competition of the season while Catholic University, Davis and Elkins, and Dickinson College proved inferior to the Couragemen. The outstanding performer of the season was Johnny Briggs, who emerged with an undefeated record in the back stroke and as the best all-around swimmer. Gus Culberson and Jim Patten made exceptionally good showings considering the fact that this was their first year of competitive swimming. Once again, this season, the American University played host to the Junior National A. A.U. Championship Meet and the Metropolitan Invitational Inter- Scholastic and Inter-Collegiate Swimming Meet.

BOXING Coach BERT COURAGE Manager BILL CASSARD Glancing back over boxing ' s initial year at A.U., the sports fan cannot but admire the fine showing which this infant group of pugilists made and realize that despite match statistics, this was truly a great season. It all started back in ' 47 when Jim Petro took under his wing a small group, who liked the fighting game and were willing to work for its establishment as part of the regular athletic program. With the addition of " ex-pro " Bert Courage to the sports staff, a team of scrappers was organized and the fists began to fly. The schedule included bouts with Bucknell, Lockhaven State Teachers, Maryland, Georgetown, and Western Maryland. Throughout the season, the breaks seemed to be against the mit-men with many close decisions going the other way. Nevertheless, the Couragemen gained much valuable boxing experience and admiration. Making up the different weight classes were: 125 lb. — Jim Wingo and Martin Reis; 130 lb.— John Owens and Henry Schaffer; 145 lb.— Marvin Schiff, Phil Heathcote, and Mahlon Wight; 155 lb. — Tom Ford; 165 lb. — Bill Roylance; 175 lb. — Bob Matos; and in the " unlimited " class — Jim Dickerson.

Ted Rubin, Jack Lescure, Leroy Doolittle, Bill Cowan, and Bob Wildermuth heeded the call for men issued by Coach " Dutch " Schulze — all returning from service on A.U.

A.U. experienced quite an epidemic of " track fever " this spring as several young men added their names to Coach Joe Carlo ' s roster of track and field potentials. Jack French and Vic Penso proved to be valuable additions to the dash depart- ment, as did Paul Mather to the weights division. Nencioni, Morris, Rushbrook, Schaffer, Dalsheim, Anselmo, Peacher, and Edwards were steady per- formers. The tracksters competed in meets with Gal- laudet, Johns Hopkins, Catholic University, and Washington College — also in the D. C. AAU, Penn Relays, and the Mason-Dixon Conference Meet. The ' 48 track season was most successful, espe- cially from the student-spectator angle ; the attend- ance at events was unprecedented and helped the Carlo boys through a rugged schedule.

Membership in this organization is based upon participation, interest, and skill shown in intramural sports. A woman, therefore, to gain membership must have an accumulation of points which are received for participation in a variety of sports and for representing the college in extramural activities. " A " Club represents not only an honor but also sponsors girls sports on campus. Loyalty, ability and leader- ship arc shown by the members. Twice a year, at a winter banquet and at a picnic in the spring, individual and group awards arc presented. From the fall season through the spring season we have had a full and prosperous year.

The 1947-48 intramural competition, topped by the undefeated Kappa Delta team, served as a basis to choose an all-star team for A.U. in games with Mt. Vernon Junior College, University of Mary land, Wilson Teacher ' s College, Trinity College and Georgetown Visitation. Since the addition of the Leonard Student Cen- ter swimming pool, Women ' s Swimming has pro- gressed from an intramural level to an inter- collegiate status. The fall program included informal meets, recreational swims with other women ' s colleges, and an intramural meet among the local mermaids. The six meets of the spring season completed the year ' s activity of an increas- ingly popular sport on the campus. flDr ■ ,, SWIMMING First row: R. Ashburner, E. Bergman, E. Redway Second row: P.

" These are the words that always introduce the broadcasting activities of WAMC for the past school year. It is managed and operated by students of The American University. The staff and members have placed this station at the ser- vice of the college, offering programs for the assistance and furthering of education, entertain- ment, and good-will. Through experience we have learned what goes into the production of a program. We have gone through quick changes and emergencies and have developed an appreciation for radio. Convinced that college radio is here to stay and backed by our increasing knowledge of the field, we now see in our hands the potential tools with which we may carve a finer future for radio.

Gever OFFICERS BRUCE HOAK President OTTO SONDER I ' ice-President SARA PARK Secretary PHIL WARNER Treasurer The International Relations Club, prexied by Bruce Hoak, stepped into the ' 47 - ' 48 period with increased vigor; and with a very much increased membership. The roster jumped from 14 to 60 members, with the activities supervised by Dr. Harold Davis and Mr. Herbert Wood. The IRC, an affiliation of the IRC Clubs of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, was the first college organization to sponsor an all- college dance — the Harvest Hop ... a most fruit- ful venture. Activities in collegiate conferences got under way with the Middle Atlantic Regional Con- ference, where A.U. won recognition with the largest representation, besides being the only self- supporting delegation. Immediately following this conference was the Model Court of International Justice held in Baltimore, with Otto Sonder jus- ticing for A.U. . . . Another very good student turnout from A.U. Issue on hand : Turkey and Russia in the Dardanelles. Other activities aiming at the further dissemina- tion and interest in international affairs included: tea for foreign students . . . sponsoring such speakers as Mr. Usborne, who talked on World Government; Miss Marian Lichtenstein, ex-Auite, on the ' 47 World Youth Festival; and Miss Ruth Karpf, the noted correspondent, on Middle Eastern Affairs . . . and a reception at the Indian Embassy. With the many existing international crises of today, it is paramount that there be an active organization on every campus to further good will and understanding of international relations. We are proud of the accomplishments of the IRC, but we are also looking forward to an even more productive year. Seventy four The Student Christian Fellowship progressed in the development of its program to promote living Christianity in daily campus life. The membership and number of activities were increased. Ten- minute Morning Meditations were held daily before school, and the Bible Study Group met three times a week at noon. The Fellowship came into a closer relationship with the Student Chris- tian Movement, of which it is a member group. It accepted as its own the program emphasized by the Movement and organized commissions to execute these. As a beginning, a panel discussion on Universal Military Training was presented to the Student Body, and a successful clothing drive for overseas relief was held. Fellowship teams were formed to give local church groups aid in program building and also to give students an opportunity to serve their community. Two European students travelling in this country accepted invitations to interpret the student situation in Europe today; one spoke in Chapel. The SCF took an active part in assisting the Religious Activities Board in administering its programs throughout the year, and played a substantial role in the activities of the Washington Federation of Christian Youth and the Student Work Committee of the Washing- ton Federation of Churches.

Two chapel services each Thursday introduced the problem of dividing it into two groups — with enough tenors at each service. A special program of choral music was presented in October, and the ever-impressive Christmas Con- cert was given in newly-curtained Clendenen. The highlight of the year was the combined concert with the Wesleyan University Glee Club. February was a busy month with a trip to Howard Univer- sity and participation by the double quartet in the Founders ' Day Program over station WMAL. The climax of the season came with the annual Spring Concert in May and thus the end of another busy and successful vear. Seventy-eight VALEDA CLUB OFFICERS SALLY EHLERS President SUSAN ALTMAN Vice-President TOBA CAMNITZ Secretary LEIGH ROSENBERGER Treasurer For some time there has been a need for an organization on campus of the independent women and those who are " wandering Greeks. " Early last November several girls led by Sally Ehlers met with Dean Skillington in hopes of forming a vital organization for these girls at A.U. In February these hopes became a reality and officers were selected to guide the first steps of this new organ- ization. The introductory tea in February was the beginning of the social activities for the Valedas. While 1948 was primarily a year of organization, the Valeda Club hopes to grow so that it will include all those independent women and " wan- dering Greeks " who wish to meet on common ground to promote the general welfare of A.U. By encouraging its members to enter into all phases of campus life, the future is limitless. First row: C. Spiegel, M. Briggs, N. Cuno Second row: T. Camnitz, S. Ehlers Back row: L. Rosenberger, T.

Seiler The The Staff of the 1948 AUCOLA has attempted several things. It has attempted to change the yearbook not only in size but also in the presenta- tion of the annual ' s contents. A great deal of time has been spent on the layout. Our main idea has been to emphasize the visual side rather than the verbal. The Staff has worked tirelessly to make these innovations possible. It began with great plans, altered by such realistic reminders as finances and practical printing and engraving problems. Thus, we turn this, our 1948 AL T COLA, over to the student body with the hope that through the cus- toms, traditions, and activities it will serve as a stimulus to pleasant memories of student life and will present to you this pictorial and verbal chron- icle of The American University of 1948. This yearbook has been made possible by the help of Dr. Charles Clark, our faculty advisor; The Basil Smith System, our engraver; The Clark Printing House; and Merin Studios, the photog- rapher, and the Staff takes this opportunity to thank them for their valuable help and coop- eration.

Ken Jones was the confirmed Editor-in-Chief. But an Editor is lost without an efficient staff — people like Shawnee Ward, Bill Phillips, John Owens, Astrid Nye, Anna Ferris, Gloria Hughes, Carol Harvey, Mary Jaudon, Bob Nugent, Ely Liebow and numerous others. Thanks to these people, the Eagle was never prevented or delayed for its weekly six o ' clock circulation — the first weekly Eagle in nearly seven years. For the staff, one issue had no sooner reached the printer than preparations for the next would begin. Our goal was to make each succeeding issue better than the last. For a true appraisal we must wait for next year ' s editions. We turn over the quill with every good wish, and hope that they will attain even higher journalistic standards.

The perseverance and outstanding work of the members in their own special fields has enabled them to be awarded a key or certificate, a tribute for their achievement. Alpha Psi Omega, national honorary dramatic fraternity; Beta Beta Beta, national scientific fra- ternity; the national journalistic fraternity. Pi Delta Epsilon: Pi Gamma Mu, the national fra- ternity for scholars of social sciences ... all reward those students who have demonstrated their special capacities. In addition, Cap and Gown, women ' s honorary; and Omicron Delta Kappa, men ' s hon- orary elects its members on the basis of loyalty, service, and high scholarship. The distinction of being elected to " Who ' s Who in American Colleges and Universities " is given to those Juniors and Seniors who have made out- standing contributions to their University. These groups confer honor upon every student admitted to membership, for it is, indeed, a recognition of honest initiative and persistent effort to better campus life.

Crum, V. Huey, M. Hall Second row: M. Cragoe, F. Baker, E. Ferber, Dean Skillington, A. Engle, M. Seiler Panhellcnic Council is composed of every mem- ber and pledge of each sorority on campus. To provide proper organization, however, each soror- ity elects one delegate who, with the president, makes up " Pan-hell. " The main purpose of this council is to provide a medium through which sorority women may work together to unify the interests of the women students. This organization works to maintain University and sorority standards, supervise schol- arship, plan social affairs, and regulate rules gov- erning rushing. The annual " Song Fest " was held in the Spring with the cup going to the win- ning sorority. At commencement, the Panhellenic cup was presented to the Freshman sorority woman who had received the highest grade average for her first two semesters. This year plans were made to adopt a war orphan. INTER-FRATERNITY COUNCIL The Interfraternity Council is the cooperating organization of the men ' s fraternities. Under the competent guidance of its faculty advisor, Dr. Shenton, a well-planned and highly successful rushing period was carried out with new peaks being reached in pledging. The Interfraternity Prom was held in February at the Wardman Park Hotel. Cups were awarded then to the winners of last year — one to Alpha Tau Omega for the best record in intramural sports and one to Alpha Sigma Phi for the highest scholastic average. In March the members for all fraternities joined in the second annual stag party. Competition was livened in April with Songfest, the winner receiv- ing the Interfraternity Cup.

The fraternity colors, by which it is identified, are silver and magenta. The flower is the red carna- tion. Headquarters is the house on Fraternity Hill, scene of formal meetings, parties, dances, initiations, and sports; all coupled with a good deal of hard work, dedicated to the ideals of Phi Sigma Kappa; Brotherhood, Scholar- ship, and Character.
