Mrs. Gondos graduated from S ' arthmore Col- lege in Swarthmore, Pennsylvania and earned her advanced degrees from the University of Penn- sylvania. Since the Fall semester of 1947, Dr. Gondos has been teaching " ' all shades of history. " Herself a veteran of forty months in the Navy, she says of the early days of 1947, " there were waves of veterans on the campus. " She states that she has observed the peak enrollment then, seen it fall off and rise again to its present peak. Prior to coming here. Dr. Gondos taught English and Latin in the public schools of Penn- sylvania. She has also worked in historical socie- ties before and after her military service and has had editing experience and collated several manu- script collections. Dedication Presently, Dr. Gondos is the facidty advisor to the History Club, Phi Alpha Theta History Honorary, Cap and Go vn Women ' s Honorary Scholarship and Leadership Fraternity and Delta Gamma social sorority. Dr. Gondos is also on the Execiuive Committee of the faculty. This is an elected position on a board to study problems of educational policy and to coordinate committee structtne of the university. Dr. Gondos is a member of the University Honor Society and has been President and Secretary-Treasurer of that organization. She is also a member of Phi Beta Kappa, Pi Gamma Mu, Phi Alpha Theta, Pi Sigma Alpha and the Selection Committee of College Council. In ad- dition, she has served on College Council for ten years. Mrs. Gondos is married to Victor Gondos, Jr. He is Archivist in charge of the Civil War Branch at the National Archives. Mrs. Gondos stated that she enjoys cooking " when she gets the time. " Of her years at A.U., Dr. Gondos remarks, " It ' s been a pleasure to observe the growth over the past half decade and to realize that there is indeed a great present and future for the Uni- versity but whether the university is large or small it is the quality of the students, faculty and administration that makes for greatness. On my part, I have always enjoyed being here at A.U. " cyrciniini biatioyi President Hurst R. Anderson fltU President Hurst R. Anderson The President in his office. In its own name an " annual " marks the pas- sage of a year. The 1959 TALON marks a year of progress for The American University. Every day we are conscious of this when we view the building of the ne v dormitory, consider the plans for future buildings, and review our continuing growth as represented in an expanded curriculum and a constantly increasing faculty and student body. Vhile the University is building for the future, and while all of us are aware of the physical development of our facilities now and planned for the future, still, the real concern of trustees and faculty is the c}uality of the educational experience for each student. The goal of any institution of higher educa- tion is to develop the God-given potentiality of the student to his best advantage, to the enrich- ment of his life and the greater good of his country. The success of an educational institu- tion is the success of its individual graduates. Their contributions to their country and their professions, the culture and religious interests which they carry ' ith them into their adult life, are the standards by vhich they are measured and which A ' e hope we have helped them to acquire. The source of our greatest pride is our students, for in them we see our future greatness. Thus, the progress of the University Avhich we mark in this year of 1959 is also your progress, in which we all rejoice. Hurst R. Anderson President I ' lesidciU Anderson disphiys (iilure rampus plans. Stafford H. Cassell He is Avell fitted to his job of recruiting for the University as he has attended American Uni- versity as a student and was even at one time an Editor of the TALON. Since his graduation, he has also been a coach of the American Uni- versity Eagles basketball team. He held this position for ten years and as a scroll on the wall of his office states, " . . . in ten years at the helm of the American University ' s court squads (he) has never had a loosing (sic) season ... A builder of men, ' Pop ' has helped place A.U. in the nations athletic picture. Under his tutelage the Eagles have always been in contention for Mason-Dixon Conference honors . . . " " Pop " is always ready with a friendly smile and a helping hand and may be seen almost anywhere on campus at most any time. He is busy at all facets of college life from administra- tive duties in his office in the administration building to cheering one of A.U. ' s teams on to victory to a quick cup of coffee in the cafeteria. Staff Cassell is truly one of American University ' s protidest possessions. Mr. Staff Cassell is better known to many of us as " Pop. " Pop is familiar to all A.U. students for he is ahvays on hand to help someone with a problem. Mr. Cassell holds at the University, the posi- tion of Assistant to the President. The Office of the Assistant to the President handles Admissions, Public Relations, Publicity, Alumni Affairs, Stu- dent Promotion and all levels of contact between the University, the Student and the Community. It is due to the unstinting efforts of ' Top " that the student body at American University has grown so tremendously in the past few years. Mr. Cassell has made countless trips throughout the East each year recruiting students for the University. In many cases he is the first personal contact with the University of the student. Dr. John E. Bentley Dr. Bentley relaxes in his office. The door of Hurst Hall opens and Dr. John E. Bentley valks in; his hat perched on top of his head, a briefcase in one hand, an unused cane in the other; surrounded by several of his student-friends who are laughing at one of his amusing stories. As the bell sounds Dr. Bentley bids them goodbye, stopping only several times on his way to class to talk to a fello v professor or maybe a troubled student. He enters the classroom, bows and says, " If anyone ' s away today speak, " and in this way begins an hour of enjoyable lecture in either psychology or philosophy. Those who are able to register for his always filled classes know they are listening to a man of experience, a wise man Avho gives his students more than just book material. To the scholar who listens closely. Dr. Bentley gives many tips for a successful life. This, along with being an interesting speaker and a practical, understanding professor, makes a course with Dr. Bentley the three most valuable semester hours in a college program. Dr. Bentley came to America in 191.5 from England, with only five dollars in his pocket. P ' orty-four years later, after having: studied at Boston, Clark and McCiuill Universities, Wes- Icyan College and Harvard University; taught at the U ' nivcrsitics of Denver, Colorado, Wash- ington anfl Johns Hopkins, and ihen the Uni- versity of F " lorence in Italy; written numerous books about psychology and philosophy; been honored as Dean Emeritus of our university; become a member of the American Philosophic and the American Psychological Associations, Omicron Delta Kappa, Lambda Chi Alpha and Kappa Delta Phi; has made himself a fan club of young people here that has groAvn in the thirty-five years he has been with American University until today we might say that Dean Bentley has influenced more students than any other professor in the university ' s history. Yes, looking back on all this. Dean Bentley can feel satisfied, proving as many great men have proved that one doesn ' t have to start at the top in order to attain it. When school spirit is low. Dean Bentley can be seen standing on the hill by the soccer field, cheering the team on to victory with a handful of students. He used to play soccer and filled the capacity of coach for many years; now he is still on the team with his enthusiasm and hearty pep talks. He is also an avid basketball fan and attends almost every game. Dr. Bentley speaks five languages: German, French, Italian, Greek and English with a bit of an English brogue. From the twinkle in his eyes to the under- standing of his heart the 1959 TALON honors Dean Bentley. He brought and campaigned to continue a real school spirit at American Uni- versity. Dr. Bentley counsels some of his stiidcnis. Ralph C. John, Dean, College of Arts and Sciences W.

It is from this office that the Dean of Sttidents, Dean Boldt and the Dean of Women, Dean Olson carry out their vork. Assisted by Mrs. Cook, the administrative assistant, they control disciplinary activities, as- sist the Student Court, confirm overnight and late permissions and numerous other duties. Students with personal problems com e to this office for help, or maybe just a talk with one of the Deans.

Published weekly, its standard size is a full eight pages, with twelve page issues throughout the year and lour pages after big holidays. The year started without a Sports Editor, a very necessary staff member, btU this vacancy was soon filled by Scott Hockenberry. Business Manager Stew Seltzer, with the aid of only one staff member, keeps the paper on its financial feet with his abundance of ads. All three members of the news editorial staff moved up this fall from their last year ' s reporter positions. News Editor Peg Longfellow, with her As- sociate and Assistant Editors, Ellen Schartzchild and Betty Downin, gather and assemble any new S orthy items about college happenings and people related to the college. The editorial staff is helped in this enormous task, always one of the most important on any newspaper, by a w illing news staff. There is scarcely any- thing that goes on at AU that is not captured by the news staff of the Eagle. Rotmding out the editorial set-up of the paper is the feature staff. Sophomore Phil Allen is the sole member of the feature editorial staff, serving as Assistant Feature Editor. The feature staff captures some of the lesser known phases of AU, as well as highlighting prominent people and situations around campus. Certain things always stand out in the daily life of any newspaper. In this, the Eagle is no exception. A continuous favorite of staff and readers is the Truculent T vo, a weekly column completely stocked with humor. The All- Greek Corner is another popular regular, read faithftilly by all campus Greeks. Other memorable events include our newly painted office, changed from a pea green to a " colorful " pea brown; the newly instigated morgue system; Alpha Sig ' s Mufti keeping the staff company dtning the long, harried evening hours; the type vriters that never work prop- erly; the sports staff freezing in the cold trying to get to games; the full waste paper baskets that never get emptied; the birthday and Christmas parties donated by editorial staff members; Stew ahvays late with his ads; Devon- shire ' s at 12 with pizza; the fim, the hard work, the constant playing of the radio, the ringing of the phones, the latighter and fello ' ship — these and more, but most of all, the pride each Wednesday, when the Eagle comes out, in knowing that it is a job well done! r ie Eagte Staff Fditor IF;iwk dicrks f)vcr feature news. r.dilor and Scdl liaid at work. 67 f m Staff Frank Gathof Advisor SP Dick Oliver Photographer Talon Staff The 1959 TALON wishes to thank all those who have cooperated in the publication of this book.

" With equipment that far exceeds most college broadcasting facilities, WAMU made vast strides forward in the develop- ment and use of this, and in programming structure. Programs range from the contemporary music of " Swing " to the classics of " Best Uoved Composers, " via such shows as " Dixie with Dave, " " Washington Week- end, " and " The Trticulent Two. " Dramatic readings hit the air waves on " Words in the Night. " News broad- casts were stipplemented by the editorials of " Insight. " As a part of the campus commun ity WAMU served as a " Campus Calendar, " and its broadcasts of the Eagle basketball games made it possible for everyone to attend every game. WAMU was the tool of learning for all those interested in communications, while serving as a campus-wide means of enter- tainment and enlightenment. WAMU set the pace in college radio. Shep Morgan, Manager of WAMU, has devoted many hours of his fotir years here to the station. Besides the position he now holds, Shep has also been Program Direc- tor for t vo years and has done announc- ing, news and had his own program every year on WAMU. 70 610 on your dial Executive Board of WAMU Arnie Shaw and Records Running a Tape The Bald Eagle THE BALD EAGLE, A.U.s Humor Maga- zine, is now in its first year of publication.

" HOBSON ' S CHOICE " The American University Players opened their 1958-1959 season on October 15, with " Hobson ' s Choice. " a sparkling comedy by Harold Brig- house. The play, -which vas centered in Salford, Lancashire, England in 1880, vas concerned with the problems of Henry Hobson (who was played by Timothy Rice) and his attempts to marry off his two daughters, Vickey (Linda Engle) and Alice (Myrna Statland) while at the same time keeping Maggie (portrayed by Gail Fasolt) single so that she will be able to tend to the boot shop. Maggie, ho vever, proves to be a peer to her father ' s stubborness as she " persuades " Willie Mossop. a young bootmaker in her father ' s shop, to be her husband in a hasty wedding. The play, through a series of comic turns, sho vs the " old maid " Maggie demonstrating her 130 skill in topping her father ' s obstinacy by remaking Willie (played by Bruce Kuehnle) from a shy lad into a man who matches her father ' s domineer- ing personality. Maggie emerges completely victorious in the final scene of the play. Hobson has by this time, been driven to a near-alcoholic state of health because of Maggie ' s independence. A sure cure for Hobson is total abstinacy and Maggie — a pre- scription given to Hobson by his doctor. Rather than give in to her, Hobson begs Vickey and Alice to come home and care for him. How- ever Vickey reveals that she is " expecting. " Like- wise Alice refuses to come home since she is married to fine upstanding lawyer who is of a higher social standing than Hobson. There is no alternaitve but to beg Maggie — and, " by gum, " Maggie has won! " Hobson ' s Choice " also featured Ronald Segal as .Albert Prosser, Alice ' s lawyer husband; Elliot Dciiniberg as Jim Heller, Hobson ' s ( ' h)ale and ' linable friend; and James F ' itzgerald as Vickey ' s liusljaiid. P ' red Beenstock. I he play also included Tina Benedict as Ada I liggins; Wallace Hill as Tubby Wadiow; Richard Munske as Dr. MacFarland; and Barbara Morrison as Mrs. Hepworlh. " OUR TOWN " " Our Town " is a cut-away view of a small New England village, Grover ' s Corners, New Hampshire, just after the turn of the century. In the first act the amiable Stage Manager (Elliot Denniberg) introduces us to two of the town ' s ordinary families — the Webbs (Editor Webb, Steve Len; Mrs. Webb, Rachel Reaney; Wally, Dick Butt; Emily, Tina Benedict) and the Gibbs (Doc Gibbs, Mickey Agee; Mrs. Gibbs, Heidi Offenberger; Rebecca, Betty Downin; George, Marvin Greene). From breakfast to bedtime we catch a glimpse of the usual round of events in which these families are involved. Throughout the course of the day we also meet some of the town ' s colorful inhabitants — Joe Crowell, the newsboy (Allen Mandel); Howie Newsome, the milkman (Bob Pine); Professor Willard (Don Sheaffer); Simon " OUR TOWN " Stimson. the drunk organist (Bert Bright); Mrs. Soames, the to vn gossip (Joyce Young) and Constable Varren (Al Rachel). The romance of Georg e Gibbs and Emily Vebb is traced during the second act which culminates in their wedding and the promise of a joyous and rewarding life together. Nine years have passed as the third act opens in the cemetery. Here, on a hilltop, are the dead, waiting — " waiting for the eternal part in them to come out clear. " They are joined by Emily, a little fearful of what is ahead, a little reluctant to leave behind the happy memories of life. Her wish to go back and relive a day of her life is granted, but she soon returns. Realizing that human beings, caught up in the whirl of routine affairs, know little of true happiness she advances to the understanding that only the dead possess. " Our To ' ivn " will probably be most remem- bered for its emotional impact — achieved without the aid of scenery and with few props. It required the largest number of lights ever used in any one show and the addition of an extra control board. 133 SOCCER The American University soccer Eagles start off the season with rigorous training. Their games are exciting and their spirit is fine. The team plays the various colleges and universities around the area and even travels into Virginia and Penn- sylvania on occasion to find opposition. J r. i 1.1 1 . i , A. U.

THEATER This has been an outstanding year for the A.U. Players. Under the most capable hands of Dr. Jack Yocum, Director of the Theatre, the Players have been extremely busy doing their four major productions, the student directed " Candida, " a television program of " Everyman, " a road show of " Antigone, " and the student di- rected one-acts. In addition. Dr. Yocum was appointed Chairman of otir newly created Speech and Drama Department at the beginning of the year. As a part of our grooving program, we have another first. Mr. Herman Zillmer is our new Technical Director of Drama. Coming from Kansas State College, Mr. Z has designed some very imaginative sets. Pictured below, is his set for " Candida. " He also teaches classes in Make- up, Stagecraft, Play Production, and Public Speaking. ' Candida ' Set Herman Zillmer " Candida " was a unique experiment in A.U. theater history. It was the first full- length play to be directed by a student, an honor which -ivas besto •ed upon one of the most outstanding members of A.U. Players, Elliot Denniberg. G. B. Sha v ' s famous play centers around Candida, an idealization of woman, so beautifid. charming, and gracious as to ' in everyone ' s love; her husband, the Rev- erend James Mavor Morell, a practical preacher with Socialistic leanings and, in the opinion of some, a " moralist and windbag " ; and Eugene Marchbanks, a sensitive, romantic poet. The cast is rounded out with Proserpine Garnett, Morell ' s sharp-tongued biu soft-hearted secretary; Can- dida ' s father, Mr. Burgess who is a hearty, jovial old fellow although somewhat of a scoundrel; and Lexy, a well-ineaning but slow- witted curate. " CANDIDA Marchbanks challenges Morell ' s love for Candida, declaring that he knows nothing of the true meaning of love and takes Candida too much for granted. Morell counters that March- banks is full of silly, non- sensical dreams. A show- down occtirs and Candida is asked to choose between the two. She gives herself to " the weaker of the two " and Eugene leaves with a new maturity given him by the experience.

Not if it ' s The Mad Woman of Chaillot. The play opens in the Cafe Terrace of Chez Francis, a Spring day next year. With an eye out for a good deal or some- thing to put their money into, the in- vestors of our plot, decide to put trust into a prospector ' s report of oil in Paris. The oil is under the Cafe owned by the Mad Woman of Chaillot (Countess Aurelia). When she discovers the plot to gain control of the Cafe, the Mad Woman sees The Mad Woman of Chaillot has saved civilization. As the director said in his program notes: " If such madness can save the world so charmingly, let us hope that more such unorthodoxy will be practiced. " it as another step in the downfall of civili- zation. Countess Aurelia discusses the whole matter with her three " Tea " friends. MME.
