The American University Library WASHINGTON. D. C. The Nineteen Fifty AUCOIA Published AnnuaUy By The COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES AND SCHOOL OF SOCIAL SCIENCES AND PUBLIC AFFAIRS OF THE AMERICAN UNIVERSITY Editors : d • i Business Manager: T. Ogden Brown Curtis G. Keesee. Jr. Alfred S. DeMott. Jr. D FOREWORD X. IE usual yearbook foreword sei ' ves as an intro- duction to a general theme which is to be woven throughout the volume. We have departed from this custom in tliat the 1950 AUCOLA is rather a pic- torial sununarization of the students, activities, and events which have taken place at the American University during the past school year. Departure has also been made from the tradition of portraying the underclassmen and faculty, primarily due to financial limitations, and partly due to the fact tliat a yearljook as such is primarily for the graduating seniors, and should deal with their activities and events as nnich as seems practicable. The general purpose of this issue is to connnemo- rate the Silver Anniversary of the College of Arts and Sciences, and at the same time to tie this up with the Washington Sesquicentennial celebration. In view of this fact, a short section has been in- cluded as our trilnite to these two anniversary observances during 1950. The words and photographs contained herein cannot recapture the joys and experiences which college life has brought us, but it can serve to remind us and recall to memory the happy times ' when our hearts were young and gay ' . To the Class of 1950, then, this book is addressed: the most mature, the largest, and the most promising group of young men and women ever to graduate from The American University. The AUCOLA staff and advisors wish you every success in life, and con- gratulate you on a job well done. 31 . Judge Robert V. Fletcher DEDICATION -HAIRMAN ol the Board of Trustees, statesman, jurist, and servant of the community. Judge Robert V. Fletcher has an envialile record of unswerving loyalty and devotion to The American University. Our institution, under his counsel and guidance, has expanded and grown to become one of the larger metropolitan imiversities. Judge Fletcher is Special Counsel for the Associ- ation of American Railroads, in addition to serving on every committee of the Board of Trustees. As Chairman of the Executive Committee, the Judge has shown inspired leadership and a will to do everything in his power to make our University the best. The editors humbly dedicate this book to the man who has done so much for The American University, and wish him continued success in every walk of life. 44, Colonel Lemuel B. Bolles DEDICATION s Director of Student Affairs at the School of Social Sciences and Public Affairs, Colonel Lemuel B.

Ihe program of instruction and research in The School of Social Sciences and Puhlic Affairs is designed to lay broad foundations for the understanding of the problems of human group relationships and to develop a high standard of professional skill and technical com- petence in dealing with the control and direction of society. A considerable part of the curriculum has been developed for the benefit of persons employed in the Federal govern- ment and for those who plan to enter the service of the United States. It provides instruction also for those who expect to enter other professional and business careers in which a thorough comprehension of certain areas of the social sciences is necessary. One of the purposes of the School is the continuing education of mature students who recognize that contemporary society is changing so rapidly in its demand for professional competence and human service that advanced study is necessary if one is to keep in the forefront of his field. UNIVERSITY to the graduating class 50 College of Arts and Sciences II HE progiam of instruction and research in the College of Arts and Sciences is desi gned to establish foundations for the ways of living which will bring young men and women into the community as parents, citizens, professional leaders, and human beings who want to live normal and useful lives. The College therefore has the responsibility to serve the student as a whole person in his emotional, moral, social, physical, and economic life, as well as in his intellectual development. The College seeks in instruction and in informal student living to encourage students to formulate standards of behavior for themselves in a democratic society. Courses of instruction are provided in the fields of natural sciences, social studies, humanities, and health and physical education. Instruction is thereby provided to prepare students for immediate employment in their chosen fields, graduate and professional schools, and instillation of useful ideas necessary to give meaning to life. Dr. Paul F. Douglass A s President of The American University, Dr. Paul F. Douglass has guided our school successfidly through the postwar era to a new high in educational achievements. Largely through his efforts to make our school one of which we may be justly proud, American has added to its growing prestige year hy year. Dr. Douglass has been instrumental in securing the addition of the Washington College of Law and the School of Nursing to our ever-growing academic and institutional facilities. During his tenure, new heights in educational achievement and intellectual advancement have been reached, and the future of The American University as an insti- tution of higher learning and training for the future is assured. With men of Dr. Douglass " calii)re, our University cannot fail to ])repare young men and women for their places in life on an equal basis with graduates of other institutions. For this, and many other accomplish ments, we wish to thank and connnend President Douglass. 4 8 SCHOOL OF SOCIAL SCIENCES AND PUBLIC AFFAIRS OFFICERS Piesident: LeRoY A.

IHE College of Arts and Sciences offers the work-study program to enable young women to pursue an academic course while at the same time holding a position in the government. The program is divided into three semesters yearly consisting of evening and Saturday courses thereby permitting work for a baccalaureate degree to be completed in six calendar years of study. The program meets the demands of two classes of students: ( 1 ) those who due to necessity must earn while they learn, and ( 2 ) those who wish to relate life-experience to classroom study, constantly testing the theory by application in practical effort. The girls live in campus residence halls and participate fully in college activities. They sponsor several parties during the school year, notable among which are their Halloween and Yuletide affairs. They also have special seminars to meet with faculty members for the purpose of binding information together into a life-meaning. Inde- pendent study is also provided for, usually during the college vacations. Truly, the work-study girls are an integral part of the campus life, both aca- demic and social. 4 46 SCHOOL OF NURSING SENIORS Jeanne Downs Jane Morea Helen Jones Mary O ' Neii. Virginia Kemp Shirley Seal Betty Kilhinger Agnes Timbrick Francine LaRue Joan Walker Senior Class Officers Relax A Moment The Junior Class SCHOOL OF NURSING N 1949, the addition of the School of Nursing to to the glowing facilities of the American University was announced by the President. This marked a new departure, as it is the first division of the University to offer a degree connected with the medical pro- fession. The addition now affords nursing students the opportunity to pursue simultaneously a B.S. and an R.N. degree. Under the direction of Dean Jorgenson, the School provides an opportunity for the girls to attend classes on the campus three days a week in addition to their hospital duties. The young ladies enter into the academic and social life, and are a welcome addition to the campus community. With this, the first issue since merger, we wish to extend best wishes and congratulations to the new School. |48 ; 1 — rr AK lk HONORARY FRATERNITIES Who ' s Who First row: T. Brown, V. Harvey, S.

HONORARY FRATERNITIES X, HE honorary fraternities at The American Uni- versity have regular meetings and participate fully in University life. They are organized to provide intimate interest groups for tlie cultivation of per- sonal relationships and the definition and direction of special aptitudes. Election to an honorary is a distinction and recognition for an individual of time well spent, both in study and in extracurricu- lar activities. In view of these facts, a more detailed inquiry into the purposes and aims of the preced- ing honoraries follows. WHO ' S WHO Among Students in American Universities and Colleges sprang from the idea of creating one national basis of recognition for stud- ents, devoid of initiation fees and dues. Time has proved that this group functions in several vital capacities — as an incentive to get best results from college experience, as a compensation for achieve- ments, as a standard of measurements for honors in all schools, and as a recommendation in the business world. OMICRON DELTA KAPPA is a society for Junior and Senior men who have distinguished themselves in campus activities, who have high scholastic standing, and who have demonstrated strength of character. It is a large national organi- zation. CAP AND GOWN each spring elects to mem- bership junior and senior women who have dis- tinguished themselves in scholarship, leadership, and campus activities. It is a local organization, and is the University ' s highest recognition for women. I DELTA EPSILON is a national journalistic honor society for those students who have held staff positions on University publications for at least two years. Each year at commencement the fraternity presents a cup to the senior who has done the most to further service and promotion of college pui)lications. DELTA PHI ALPHA is an honorary for those students who have taken at least two years of college German with a ' B ' average or better, and who have a high scholastic average. BETA BETA BETA is a society for liiology majors who have taken at least two years of biology with a ' B ' average or better. ALPHA PSI OMEGA is a national society for those who have demonstrated outstanding perform- ance in any phase of dramatic work. DELTA SIGMA RHO is a national honorary for debaters who maintain a ' B ' average, and who par- ticipate in intercollegiate debates. PI GAMMA MU is a national society of students of distinction in the social sciences who maintain a high scholastic average. COLLEGE HONOR SOCIETY is a local group for seniors of high scholastic standing, and are elected by the faculty on this basis. i 54 ORGANIZATIONS AND ACTIVITIES C. Negri. D. Mazundar. T. Moffitt.

The Conference is now in the process of rewriting and revising this document for submission at a later date. COSA also held a Spring Dance in 1949, which was a gratifying success. All of the activities in the latter part of the 1948-49 yeai ' were largely the result of the tireless THE CONFERENCE ON THE As a result of these aims, the first Senior Class was formed and organized, and the other classes have followed suit during the past year. In the fall of 1949, a constitution for the permanent student gov ernment was submitted to the student body for efforts of Chairman John Jacobs. The council is greatly indebted to ' Jake ' for these and many other activities whicli lie started before resignation in 1949. J. Jacobs. L. Sanderson. J. Bedrosian. G. Roberts, E. Wood. A Col. Lemuel B. Bolles The new Chairman, Earl Wood, will continue to serve until the proposed constitution is passed, and will be ably assisted by Al DeMott, Tom Moffitt, Jim Robinson, and many others. FORMAL dinner was held last fall as a tribute to members who were to graduate, and plans were laid at the time for another Spring Dance which was held at the Hotel 2400. At a date not too far in the future, there should be a permanent student government if interest is maintained as it has been in the past. This should also afford the students of the SSPA plenty of outside activities and ' college life ' . The council also wishes to thank Col. Bolles and to commend him for the wonderful job he has done with the Conference. The Colonel, beloved by all who know him, has been the guiding light through the trying times experienced by the group. Although he will deny it. Col. Bolles has done more toward making the students of the SSPA an active group than any other person. The council and the Con- ference are looking forward to more of his wise counsel and sage advice in the years to come. ORGANIZATION OF STUDENT AFFAIRS C. Negri. D. Mazundar. T. Miiffitt.

COILEGE COUNCIL T II HE I HE official organ of the student body at the College of Alts and Sciences, the College Council is the administrative agency of the Student Associa- tion. It includes twelve students, five faculty mem- bers, the faculty auditor, and three administrative officers. The Council exercises planning and Inidget functions for community activities, coordinates the work and programs of the campus boards and activities, and keeps general supervision of student programs. President Walker ' s principal platform has been to rely on the wishes of the students, and this policy has been carried out insofar as practicable. The excellent accomplishments of the Council are to be commended, especially the work of Comptroller Peppers and Secretary Williams. Thanks also to the entire organization for the splendid support and interest in the AUCOLA during it ' s financial difficulties. Without their continued backing and helpful suggestions this issue would have been im- possible to publish. The Council is currently supporting a proposed amendment to the constitution so that the student officers will be elected in the spring to facilitate administration and end confusion.

Ogden Brown Assistants I he Freshman Handbook is published annually by the College of Arts and Sciences to help in the orientation of new students in the University. It is given to all incoming freshmen during their Orientation Week before school begins again in the fall. The Handbook is a publication which serves a very important function in that it may be used as Harry Biser Curtis Keesee Martin Ries a guide to all activities and procedures at the Uni- versity. An invaluable aid to all incoming students, it is also helpful to the " old timers for reference purposes. Actually, the Freshman Handbook is a guide to all the student and campus life. The 1949 edition was bigger and better than ever under the capable editorship of Warren Brown, Stan Grogan, and Ted Brown. 69 ]; THE EAGLE THE STAFF an Editor that never got ' all shook up ' — always said " Throw out the ads " when there was too nuich news and overset. a Business Manager that was always looking at ' red ink ' but using ' black ' — wanted to see an eight page paper. three Associate Editors who liked to work to- gether. a Promotions Manager that always cracked ' Negri-isms ' . a Circulation Manager that always circulated witli lier ass ' t. , a Feature Editor who laid an egg in " The Eagle ' s Nest " . ... an Advertising Manager who looked at cars and saw $$$. ... a Secretary who couldn ' t understand why the Eagle had so many Ijillings — but didn ' t mind at all. ... a Sports Editor who always asked how many inches on Page 4 after the Shopping News was put in. ... all those reporters that never got a Ijy-line and never asked for one.

V_ ONGRATULATiONS are to !)e tendered Editor Newcomlj and Business Manager Jaco l)s on the fine work they have done in giving us, the students, a really representative newspaper. Never before in the history of tliis institution has such an excellent jol) Ijeen done on the paper, and this is due in major part to their great interest and hard work to give The American University a mature college weekly. Many others helped to make this possil)le. and to all of them should go our best wishes for continued success. In accordance with the unification plan adopted Ijy the whole Lniversity, the EAGLE has Ijecome a University publication, rather than a College paper, which has enabled a much better coverage of current news, increased finances with which to operate, and on the whole a better edited and more comprehensive newspaper. Associate Editors McClellan, Heissner, and Sherman were invaluable aids in representing their various divisions of tlie University, as were feature columnists Jim Sanford, Larrv Volin. and Marion Sanford. Promotions Manager Charles Negri and Circulation Manager Janet Howe also were indispensable assistants. Orchids to all of vou! 71 } Alpha Phi Ome a First roll-: R. Gnegy. B. Jepsnii. L. Durloo.

In addition, the University also main- tains a Junior Varsity Basketball team and an extensive Intramural program for those interested. At present, the University is completing the most successful athletic year in history. The Basketball team emerged from a winning season as Mason- Dixon Champions: the Swimming team splashed their way to the Mason-Dixon crown also; the Junior Varsity Basketball team won the Conference cham- pionship in their class; and the Baseball team is engaged in defense of the Mason-Dixon crown it won last year, with the prospect very bright at this writing. Athletics are a very important phase of student life here at the University, and competition is con- tinuous throughout the year. Not to be forgotten are the various women ' s sports, both varsity and intramural. Intercollegiate competition is sched- uled for the women in Basketball, Hockey, Swim- ming, Archery, Bowling, and Softliall. Intramural programs are also extensive for the girls, and dur- ing the past year co-educational sports have l)een brought into the curriculum here at American University.

Bentley were co-coaches, and did a fine jol) of instructing and coaching in a previouslv unfamiliar sport here at American University. The s(|uad played a six game schedule, losing all, hut the noted improvement and spirit demonstrated toward the latter part of the season indicates that next year ' s team should do much better in the Win column. Opponents included Baltimore U., Pan- American Lnion. Loyola, Western Maryland, Wash- ington College, and Towson Teachers. The lone tally made by A. U. last season came in the Wash- ington College tilt, when Stan Branick scored on a pass from Jim Cretsos in the season ' s final. Elected co-captains for the 1949 team were Jack Young and Harry Biser. Twelve men will return next year, including Captain Don Aquilino. Graduating are Jepson, Winograd, Ancin, Koutsandreas, Ullman, Biser, Persaud, Gutheinz, Young, and Dubinsky. 97 ] Junior Varsity Basketball -OACH Dutch Schulze called practice early in Octol)er, and found many new faces reporting for Junior Varsity Basketball. The team faced a twen- ty-six game schedule, and many fundamentals were necessary for a successful season. Winning streaks of four, six, and seven games marked a (juite favor- able year for the J. V.s. They also had the honor of stopping a seventeen game winning streak of St. John ' s Military Academy. The hoys earned the right to ])lay Loycjhi. tie- fending champs, hy finishing second in the regular season play in the Mason-Dixon Conference. In a real thriller that paved the way for the game to follow, the J. V.s dethroned Loyola hy 46-44 to win the Junior Varsity crown for 1949-50. Although underdogs, they outplayed Jim Lacy ' s hoys during the whole game, and were impressive in the way they handled tlie hall and played together. The team averaged 52 points per game against their opponents ' 44. Freshman Ed Friedlander led the team with a ten point average, closely followed hy (]apt. Don Essex and Dan Wilson. Other players were Caiiill, Kidwell. Cone, Balclum, Lee, Brenne- maii, and Saxton. |98 First row: Wingo, Whalen, Lamun. Hossick.

Joe Hossick, Ishnian, Neer, Wailes, and Neuman return to the infield: Wingo, Moffatt, Morales, Geiser, Whalen, and Bradshaw return to patrol the outfield: Bob Lamon, leading hitter for two years returns to catch: and the squad is rounded out with the return of hurlers Taylor, McLachlan, Palmer, Brown, Morris, Prohaska, and newcomers McGuire and Aquilino. The season opens with Dartmouth College on March 28. and will extend well into May. Many conference games are on tap. including double- headers with Catholic and Randolph-Macon. Also scheduled are games with Georgetown and Quan- tico, basel)all powerhouses in this area. Hope for a repeat baseball cliampionship in 1950! 99 ] Varsity Basketball A. U. 69 A. U. 67 A. U. 62 A.

They did exactly that, and brought the trophy hack to A. U. for another year, in addition to liaving the most successful year in the history ot the school. The Eagles defeated Baltimore and Washington College and went into the final against the same Loyola team that had beaten them once during the season. It was a close and exciting game all the way, and at one time Loyola was ahead by ten points.

U. winning 55-54. Capt. Bob Lamon, Leroy Ishman. Sherwood Weljster, and Ronnie Garshag played a stellar game all the way with help from Moffatt, Packy Morris, Ralph Benson, Jim Kranking, Art Morales, and Jackie Neer.

Results up to this writing were all negative, with losses to Pentagon Officers Club. Cornell, Maine, Bucknell. Colgate, and Mt. St. Mary ' s. However, the remainder of the schedule included mostly conference matches, which should afford many wins for the A. U. ' ers. The squad included veterans Kondo. Baer, Moser, Williams, Harrison, and newcomers Gorin and Schools. Remaining matches were with Lynch- burg, Hopkins, Western Maryland, Loyola, Catho- lic, Randolph-Macon, Baltimore, Towson, George- town. Maryland, Drew, and rematches with Loyola, Georgetown, Mt. St. Mary ' s, Towson. Western Maryland, and Randolph-Macon. Douljles teams were composed of Kondo-Moser, Baer-Gorin, and Harrison-Williams, with Schools seeing action also. Coach McCausland expected the sijuad to improve considerably over last year ' s un- impressive record. Moser, Harrison, and Williams were veteran players attending the Wasliington Semester Program, and A. U. was proud to have them represent us in tennis. x= Ihe Varsity Track Team, coached bv Mr. Joe Carlo, had a schedule of five meets and the confer- ence championship meet at Catholic Lniversity. At tiie time of tliis writing the season had not yet opened, but prospects for a successful year were Inight. Veterans included Paul (Five-Event) Win- ings, Les Rushbrook, Steve Dalsheim, John Kout- sandreas, Vic Penso, and Jack Young. New men of promise were Dermot Owens, Bill Ferguson, and Ed Friedlander. Middle distance men were Dalsheim and Owens, hurdlers were Rushbrook, Young, and Koutsan- dreas, Penso and Ferguson ran the dashes and broad-jumped, and again Paul Winings did every- tliing else left to do, such as shot-put, discus, high jump, pole vault, and running on the relav team. Coach Carlo looked forward to improvements over last year ' s scpiad, and planned to send a team to the Penn Relays again this year. Meets were scheduled with Gallaudet, Catholic, Quantico, Loyola, and Mt. St. Mary ' s for the 1950 season, plus the annual conference championship meet in May. Varsity Golf Ihe American University Golf Team, coached by Mr. Merrell Whittlesey, planned several encounters with conference opponents and two matches, the Western Maryland Invitational and tlie animal Mason-Dixon Conference Championship matches. Veteran golfers included Captain Don Dedrick, Roy Mullen, Evan Coe, and Sherwood Webster, and several newcomers who showed some promise. Coach Whittlesey looked for improvement over last year ' s record also, with Dedrick and Webster and Coe expected to do even better, and with tlie help of the younger men to strengtlien tlie overall picture. Whittlesey ' s expectations should be achieved. A newcomer to the sports at A. U. last year, the golf team should develop into a real contender in the seasons to come. 104 Women ' s " A " Club First row: J. Mathescm. S. Tavliir. E. Lane. L. Jiine . P. June?: Second row: M.

Phi Sigma Kappa Intramural Sivimming Champions 106 Athletics Phi Sigma Koppa Intramural Basketball Champions Intramurals URING the past three years one out of every two students registered in the College has participated in the intramural program. Wherever possible, the intramurals and the recpiired physical education program are coordinated so that one may receive instruction in a sport and at the same time utilize this learning in practical and enjoyable competition. In the intramural program, the students leisure time is employed in a useful and constructive man- ner. Social contacts, group spirit, healthful living, interest in sports, physical well-being, and better scholarship are realized as a result of participation in the Intramural program. The ol)jective of health- ful living certainly can be reached by participation in this program. Dutch Schulze Director of Intramurals 107 Women ' s Varsity Sports X. I HE American University fielded varsity teams in hockey, swimming, basketball, archery, tennis, bowling, and softball. A very successful season was enjoyed by all of the above teams, with the swimming and basketball teams engaging in out- standing pei ' formances.

Many outstand- ing dances, parties, meetings, and other events are presented by the University as an aid to achieving a truly well-rounded education. In this section are presented scenes from two of the regular events here at the University, the Fresh- man Snow Dance and the Phi Sigma Kappa Moon- light Girl Dance. In addition, there are several views of the summer street dances presented dur- ing July and August by the University. Also in- cluded herein are the six major Queens selected each year, for we feel that it is indeed right to pay homage to beauty within our institution. It is hoped that the scenes and pictures presented in the follow- ing pages will serve to adequately represent the other affairs which we cannot cover in this limited issue. If pleasant memories and occasions are re- called by these pictures, then our job will have been well worth while. 109 ] Street Dance Summer Social Life MGH Front Steps AI.

The National Capital Ses- quicentennial was established to provide for the appropriate commemoration of the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the establishment of the seat of the Federal Government in the District of Colum- bia. The Silver Anniversary of the College of Arts and Sciences of The American University marks the twenty-fifth year of progress and expansion of educational facilities and ol)jectives. These two celebrations are closely connected in that one of the prime considerations for the establishment of the University was to afford students opportunity for research and cultural living in the Nation ' s Capi- tal, center of the country ' s government and political operations. The close connection between the University and tiie various agencies of the Federal Government are well known, and through these increasingly rich opportunities for a superior education, the Univer- sity has achieved prominence among leading American educational institutions. Many prominent government officials are members of the faculty, and thereby we, the students, have been enriched immeasurably by association with these outstand- ing personalities. Thus it is nuitually advantageous that these com- memorative celebrations of our school and of the government concur, for by close association each shall continue to benefit, the government by aiding the training of potential leaders, and the University by contact and cooperation with the government itself. To these two celebrations, then, this section is respectfully dedicated. THE ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS J 19 Freedom Fair Layout SESOUICENTENNIAL X. IE Commission adopted the theme of FREEDOM for its progiani. and proceeded to prepare j)lans based npon a national exposition, with a prelimin- ary and snpporting program of pageantry and drama portraying America ' s progress through free- dom. President Truman provided the name when he said: " ... I hope that all of our States and Ter- ritories, Industry, Labor and all government agen- cies and departments will respond wholeheartedly to our invitation to participate in making this ex- position the greatest story of freedom ever told. I can think of no more appropriate name for this important celelnation than Freedom Fair — and I urge all Americans to join together to make it a living symbol of America ' s faith in the democratic principles upon which our Nation was founded. " Thus the name Freedom Fair was given to the ex- position which is intended to re-enact America ' s saga of freedom — the dynamic story of our great repui)lic and its building by free men! ( 120 Memorial Amphitheatre A. .N artist ' s conception of the aiiii)liitiieatre which will be constructed for a symphonic drama to he featured on the life of George Washington. The amphitheatre is to be situated in Rock Creek Park. The drama itself will be the most important phase of the prologue to the Freedom Fair. The large bowl-shaped structure will be of native stone witli a main stage about eighty-five feet wide, and two smaller stages on either side. The two towers at left and right of the stage will house modern light- ing and sound equipment and the stall shown at left of main stage will accommodate a full chorus, to be used in conjunction with a forty-five piece orchestra. The center stage will have one of the few outdoor elevators in the world which will be used to carry full sets from an underground pit to the eye-level of the audience. A six hundred car parking lot (not shown) is planned about three hundred yards away from the main structure. Roofed areas will i)e made for shelter during rain storms. Also near the amphitheatre are other structures of the Freedom Fair to be located in the area known as Anacostia Park, at the foot of East Capitol Street S. E. Among these are the Freedom House, in which will be housed the Nation ' s historic docu- ments and the administrative offices of the Fair. Federal Building and Hall of States will in- clude exhil)its of the Congress, Federal Govern- ment, States and Territories. Industry-Labor Group will include exhiljits of our great industrial and labor organizations. Pan American Center will house exhil)its of our neighbors of the Western Hemisphere. Recreation Area will offer various forms of entertainment and amusement. United Nations Building will include exhibits of the democratic nations of Europe. There will be a continual program of music, parades, pageants, fireworks, festivals, gala days, sports contests, art exhibits, cultural and scientific demonstrations, symphonic drama ... a colorful dynamic pageant of America which will have en- during impact upon tlie millions of Americans of all ages who will come to their Nation ' s Capital 1o see it. 121 Mural oj Virginia SESQDICENTENNIAL A, N artist ' s conception of how tlie liistoiy and tradition of the State of Virginia coidd he told in a mural painting. This is one of a series of murals which will similarly depict the history of each of the 48 states. All of the murals will form a Colon- nade of States which is now being planned as a feature attraction for the celebration. The Colon- nade will be a quarter of a mile long. From the left across the top are depicted the arrival of three ships at the Jamestown settle- ment, and Pocahontas saving John Smitli from the Indians. At the middle level are Patrick Henry, Williamsburg, George Mason (seated), writing the Virginia Bill of Rights, and the eight native sons who became Presidents of the United States. Gen. Robert E. Lee, Monticello. and the Serpentine Wall at the University of Virginia. Be- low are the Monument at Yorktown, foxhunters, field hands, and one of the state ' s caverns. Each mural will be fifteen feet high and twenty-five feet long. [ 122 acknowledgments To DR. CHARLES M. CLARK.
