" Only Man ponders upon the mean- ing and purpose of his existence, and he alone is aware of his own insignificance in the scheme of things. It may be that his quest is in vain, that " pur- pose " and " meaning " are merely aspects of Man ' s exaggerated talent for thinking. Yet through the ages Man, with his vision, dreams, and memories, strives to know and to understand. Memories are fleeting phantoms, elusive things which, like the shadows in the " Allegory of the Cave, " may distort or even conceal reality. Even so, memories are our strongest link with past experience; experiences which exert an untold influence upon the life of each individual. It is hoped that in the future this book will stir memories of the hopes and fears, the dreams and disillusions, the failures and successes that have accompanied us through one year of The Eternal Search For Truth. CREDITS Harrell Fuller Editor Leonard Sloan Business Manager Mr. Ray Hiebert Advisor We gratefully acknowledge the wonderful co- operation and patient assistance we have received from the administrative personnel, faculty, and stu- dent body. Without them, and the guidance and en- couragement of Mr. Charles Clegg of Comet Press, the 1961 TALON would not have been possible. The Ete Chemistry Lab . . . in our World. . . in our Society . . .

This 75-acre campus was formally the site of the Civil War Fort Gaines. The desire of some Protestant leaders to estab- lish an institution of higher learning in the District of Columbia was expressed even be- fore the Civil War. This desire became a re- ality in the 1890 ' s when Bishop John Fletcher Hurst of the Methodist Episcopal Church pur- chased a portion of the historic fort. American University and its Uptown Campus have witnessed many changes since the University was chartered by Congress in 1893. Hurst Hall was built in 1895. Fifteen years later President Woodrow Wilson assisted in the official dedication of the University — whi ch at that time was one of the four schools in the nation devoted entirely to graduate study. In 1925 the undergraduate College of Arts and Sciences was added. During the next five years Mary Graydon Hall. Clendenen Gymnasium. Battelle Library, and Hamilton House were built. The second World War slowed down growth, but progress was once again resumed in 1949 when the Washington College of Law 12 was incorporated into the University. During the past eight years both academic and physi- cal growth have outstripped all past perform- ance. The School of Government and Public Administration and the School of Business Ad- ministration became separate divisions of the University. The Communications Building was erected in 1954, the School of International Service in 1957, and the Tompkins addition to the library was built in the same year. Five new dormitories were added: Roper and Clark in 1955, McDowell and Gray in 1957, and Hughes in 1959. The Asbury and Osborn Buildings were completed in 1960 and this year saw preparations for the construction of an Art building and a new Law School build- ing. American University, with a full-time un- dergraduate enrollment of 2500 and a total student body of over 8000 students, has ma- tured as a major institution of higher learning. Its national purpose and posture have given it significance and stature. With this solid back- ground. The American University is now ready to continue its march forward — to put its edu- cational resources at the service of the nation and develop its full potential for educational leadership. 13 Campus Landmarks ■■fl MARY GRAYDON CENTER Mcdowell HALL 14 ASBURY BUILDING INTERNATIONAL SERVICE BUILDING 15 COMMUNICATIONS BUILDING HURST HALL LEONARD GYM HUGHES HALL BATTELLE -TOMPKINS LIBRARY v ' ■•• ■ v- v- • Dedication Dr. Ralph C. John is the ideal embodiment of the 1961 TALON s theme, " The eternal search for truth. " Dr. John is a continual truth seeker. In his never-ending search, he has become an authority upon the various aspects of contemporary philosophy and religion. Dr. John ' s search for truth started at Berea Col- lege, where he secured his B.A. degree. He had further work at Boston University, where he received S.T.B. and S.T.M. degrees. Dr. John received his Ph.D. from our own American University. Dr. John joined the faculty of American Univer- sity in 1949 as Assistant Professor of Religion and University Chaplain, and has been aiding A.U. stu- dents in their search for truth ever since. He served our University and its student body subsequently in the position of Dean of Students, an office in which he served until 1958. From 1958 until the present. Dr. John has served as Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. Under his administration, the College has flourished, increasing in enrollment, curriculum, and intellectual level. In addition to his many administra- tive duties and responsibilities. Dr. John still finds time to teach one religion class each semester, deliver illuminating and lucid lectures to various groups, and provide counsel and aid for those students desiring it. In recognition of his great contributions to the student life and intellectual atmosphere of The Ameri- can University, the staff of the 1961 TALON proudly dedicates its Yearbook to Dr. Ralph C. John. Because he is an authority on contemporary religion and philos- ophy. Dr. John is in demand in a guest speaker and lecturer. Here he addresses a meeting of the Methodist Student Movement prior to the Paid Tillich lectures. Dr. John confe to College of Arts dilates at the I960 Commenct 19 The Eternal Search For Truth Those Who Guide ADMINISTRATION The eternal search for truth begins with professors, administrators, and advisors. It is they who guide us and advise us as well as teach us. They direct us as we seek the truth. Without them and their greater wisdom we would falter and per- haps never find the way.

It is in the Greek experience that the individ- ual members find a common bond. Social affairs, athletic events, and service projects all receive atten- tion from the Greek community, as the members of each fraternity and sorority work with one an- other. What better way is there to search for truth than through brotherhood! I.F.C. Dance seated: Karen Klippert, Ruth Tamsma, Susan Strand, Ruth Harris and Ann Bos. standing: K ay Sutton, Fran Morris, Sandy Orletsky, Carol Johnson and Jane Buckbinder. Panhellenic Council The Panhellenic Council of the American Univer- sity is the governing body of the five national sororities located on the sorority row of our campus. Each soror- ity sends two representatives to the Council ' s weekly meetings. The Panhellenic Council serves in an advisory capacity with regard to all inter-sorority activities such as Rush. It also takes an active role in the matters which concern the founding of a new national sorority on campus. It is the aim of the Panhellenic Council to pro- mote cooperation among the Greek groups by taking an active interest in important activities such as Song- fest, which is the sorority half of the Greek Weekend. Competition between sorority women is encour- aged by the awarding of a scholarship trophy to the sorority having the highest average. The outstanding sorority pledge is also awarded a trophy. Each year an award is presented to the outstanding sorority woman of the American University. Thus, the Panhellenic Council is composed of members who stand for good scholarship, for coopera- tion with the ideals of the American University, for the maintenance of high principles, and for the serving of the entire college community. 92 first row: Harry Ballman, Bob Eggenshiller.

Inter-Fraternity Council The Inter-Fraternity Council is the governing body of the five fraternal organizations located on campus. Two voting delegates represent each fra- ternity. The Council has as its primary functions the organization and super- vision of the activities concerning rush, Inter-Fraternity Council Weekend and the Orphan ' s dinner. The members of the Inter-Fraternity Council participate with the Pan- hellenic Council in Songfest, which is held once a year. The IFC promotes the achievement of high scholastic averages among its members by awarding a trophy to the fraternity with the highest average. Thus, the Inter-Fraternity Council is a union of men who share a common bond — that of brotherhood. It is interested in benefitting all those who belong in every possible way. 95 Tony Almario Dick Boyer Bob Beam Dave Bullard Jack Bishop Jim Cavill Jim Hammond Ken Kadala Jack Hesson Ed Karoly John Hinckley Bob Kessler President — Jack Bishop Vice President — Jack Hesson Secretary — Bob Gongloff Treasurer — Bob Kessler Alpha Sigma Phi beta chi 94 Beta Chi chapter of Alpha Sigma Phi, the tenth oldest national social fraternity in the world, came to the American University in 1940. Their house location was a quonset hut opposite the infirmary for the seven years that followed 1953. History repeated itself this year when the only quonset hut fraternity house in the nation burned on the A.U. campus on December 27, 1960. Once before, the Alpha Sigs had been forced to move when their house had burned, but this time they did so with a somewhat more nostalgic air than previous times. They knew that they would soon move into the new house being built opposite Hamilton House. In the year when we saw the oldest U.S. president being re placed by the young- est, the Sigs saw their old quonset hut replaced by one of the most modern structures on campus. Highlights of the year include the pledging of 20 new men, the special Founders Day banquet, KD winning the annual Sig Olympics, Brother Gerard ' s Stump-Lifter party, the election of Phoebe Palmer as Alpha Sig Sweetheart, the annual Spring formal and initiation. Operating out of temporary quarters next to the Phi Sig house. Beta Chi planned to have 16 men sleeping in the new house to be completed by Fall 1 96 1 .

Lexington. Virginia, in 1865. mak- ing it one of the oldest social organizations in the nation. Epsilon Iota chapter of Alpha Tau Omega was founded on the American University campus on January 30, 1943. The " maltese cross " signifies the active Alpha Tau Omega pin. with three stars and a crescent superimposed upon a black and gold background. The pledge insignia is similar, with the three stars and crescent, but it is circular in shape. The official fraternity colors are blue and gold. The opening of our new wing, which houses seven broth- ers, started the year off right. The annual Pajama Party opened the social season with a bang. Judy Taylor was chosen as the popular ATO sweetheart. A clean sweep was made of the Homecoming trophies, with the Taus taking first place for float and house decorations. Here at AU. Alpha Tau Omega initiated what is known as " Help Week " in which the pledges perform services to others. This year, as in the past, ATO participated in the fund- raising campaign conducted by the Goodwill industries. Aside from these activities, the brothers are active campus leaders in school government as well as in all phases of Greek life. Alpha Tau Omega is more than a social organization; it is a brotherhood with a strong and ever-lasting bond. Charles Jenkins Russell Lewis Tom Johnson John Loxley W. T.

At the present time, there are 72 chapters across the nation. In 1936, Epsilon Triton chapter of Phi Sigma Kappa was founded on the American University campus. It was AU ' s first national fraternity. The fraternity pin consists of solid gold Greek letters. Phi is outlined in pearls, while the Sigma Kappa letters act as a background for it. The colors are magenta and silver. Phi Sig is active in campus activities, with many brothers attaining high offices in student government. Phi Sig won the Intramural Trophy award for athletics for three consecutive years. This year. Phi Sig initiated what is known as Powder- puff Football, with the sororities competing against one an- other. In all of its activities. Phi Sig is characterized by the word, enthusiasm. A highlight on the social calendar of every year is the annual Phi Sig Moonlight Dance. Phi Sigma Kappa is a fraternity with individual members, yet these individuals are brothers. Phi Sig offers brother- hood, leadership, scholarship and character. It is a fraternity dedicated to the promotion of unity and the development of the bonds of brotherhood. fLM James Kefauver Walter King Frank Kitsoulis John Knight Kirby Matson Kenneth McLaughlin Lewis McNay Larry Megibow Ronald Nelson Tom Palmer Richard Pulsifer Ronald Roswell William Rowles Ted Seuss Frank Silver Larry Tedesco Robert Thompson Walter Tompkins Bob Walte r Paul Waugaman William Weining Tom Whittaker 99 Damn Albert Howard Arnold Samuel Ashen Ronald Friedman Neil Greenberg Alan Greenwald Steve Berkouitz Chick Becker Mike Becker David Hertz Harold Hoffman Ben Hofheimer Ira Bloom Bob Burros Arthur Dinkin Mike Bloom Bob Cooper Paul Elkins Jack Blumenthal Allen Dickstein Mike Englehardt William Jacobs Steve Jov Mai 100 Phi Epsilon Pi President — Steve Karsch Vice President — Dick Kaufman Secretary — Bob Stern Treasurer — Bob Cooper Pledgemaster — Mike Englehardt In 1956. American University ' s first non-sectarian fraternity was founded. Known as Delta Chi. it officially became Tau Delta Chi. On June 6. 1957. Tau Delta became nationally affiliated with Phi Epsilon Pi. Twenty-eight men became charter members of the Beta Beta chap- ter. Phi Ep was the first fraternity to in- stitute what is known as Deferred Rush. The brothers have won the Scholarship Trophy for three consecutive years. Phi Eps are active in many philanthropic pro- grams such as the Orphan ' s Dinner and the Goodwill Industries campaign. The brothers of Beta Beta are active in many phases of campus life. Phi Eps are represented in the student govern- ment at American University and have always placed well in athletic events, win- ning the Athletic Supremacy Cup in the first year of its existence. The fourth year on campus saw the plans being made for the new fraternity house. Phi Epsilon Pi is looking to the future, with an eye on the past.

TEP. which is a non-sectarian fraternity was founded by a dedicated group of young men on October 10, 1900 at Columbia University. The Alpha Beta chapter was installed on February 27. 1960. The fraternity colors are lavender and white. The pearl- and emerald-studded black and gold pin is being worn by many campus leaders. The chapter sponsors a yearly award to the Greek group that raises the highest amount of money towards the Orphan ' s Dinner. Aside from this particular trophy, there are many intra-fraternity awards. The most coveted of these are the fraternity man of the year and the scholarship award. Of the many important events which take place during the year, perhaps the most meaningful and enjoyable is the Sheldon Contract Memorial Beer and Bicycle Race, held during the annual Parents Weekend. TEP has made great progress during its few short years of existence. The chapter expects to continue this progress at an ever increasing rate and is looking forward to many suc- cessful years to come.

The founding members decided on the colors of olive green and scarlet, rep- resenting the autumn tones. Because they were all members of the De Pauw School of Music, the girls decided upon the first musical instrument of the Greeks as their badge — the golden Lyre. It is decorated with small pearls and has an enameled crossbar with the letters AXO. The official flower is the red carnation. The open motto for the A Chi Os is " Together let us seek the heights. " The Beta Rho chapter was founded on the American University campus in 1938. Aside from being active participants in campus activities, the A Chi Os contribute to the National Altruistic program of personnel-training for the care of Cerebral Palsy patients. Beta Rho also contributes to the many scholarships available to outstanding students. Annual Alpha Chi events include a Spring formal and a Christmas party, at which toys for under- privileged children are collected. Alpha Chi Omega strives to promote close friendship and opportunities for leadership and service are open to all. 104 " Now. girls, football isn ' t that tough.

Epsilon Theta chapter, which received its charter to become the fifth national sorority on the American University campus in 1958. emerged actively in all phases of Greek life. The green and white banner of AEPhi hangs proudly above our new room located on sorority row. Official sorority colors are green and white, and the flower is the Lily-of-the-Valley. The Alpha Epsilon Phi active pin consists of three Greek letters superimposed upon a gold bar and jeweled on pearls. The pledge pin is a gold Greek temple. Alpha Epsilon Phi is dedicated to the promotion of phil- anthropic projects in the chapter, campus and community. Among the many philanthropic projects is the awarding of a scholarship to Brandeis University and aid to dental clinics in need. The AE Phi pledges worked hard to raise funds for the Orphan ' s Fund Dinner this winter. The chapter took an active part in the Mothers March. Every year, the highlight of our social functions is the Parents Weekend. The Mothers Day Luncheon is also a spe- cial event. Although this is only our second year as a national so- rority, we feel very much at home. 106 Ruth Harris Marjorie Kesser Aileen Lowe Sandra Jacob Barbara Kluft Harriet Madresh Sally Kann Annette Leiderman Judie Mark Rosalie Strauss Nancy Tash Marilyn Wolfson 107 Ann Bennington Sue Bracket Marian Butts Stacy Capehart Gwenneth Clark Judv Devine Ann Feick Donna Geraci Karen Hansen Sandy Healy Melissa Howard Phoebe Lane Tara Lowe Carol Lemons Martha Ann Manning Gloria Meade Meredith Moore Frances Morris Delta Gamma beta epsilon 108 President — Sandy Healy 1st I ice President — Judy Taylor 2nd Vice President — Lorie White Corresponding Secretary — Wynn Staats Recording Secretary — Ann Feick Treasurer — Meredith Moore Delta Gamma, a social international fraternity for women, was founded in IS73 at the Lewis School, Oxford.

The sorority colors are bronze, pink and blue. DCs flower is the cream colored rose. The official badge is a gold anchor with a white shield and crossbar containing golden Greek letters. Delta Gamma on the shield, and Tau Delta Eta on the crossbar. Delta Gamma " s national philanthropic project is Sight Conservation and Aid to the Blind. Locally. AU ' s Delta Gammas aid the project by reading to blind students on cam- pus and by working with the Lighthouse for the Blind. The Delta Gamma International Educational Scholarship program gives foreign students an opportunity to complete one year of study in a college or university in the United States. The program, initiated in 1945. was the first of its kind to be undertaken by a national panhellenic group.

The white rose of Kappa Delta is the official flower. The colors are green and white. A diamond-shaped pin is worn by the members, while a Norman shield is the pledge insignia. Kappa Deltas are very active on the campus of the American University. From the ranks of KDs have come cheerleaders and other campus leaders. Aside from the par- ticipation in all Greek activities, and those sponsored by the University, the chapter holds its own events such as the Christmas party and the Formal. Beta Iota aids the National Kappa Delta philanthropic project of supporting the Crippled Children ' s Hospital in Richmond, Virginia. Food baskets have been sent out by the KDs to needy families.

Georgia. Originally known as the Philomathean Society, it is the second oldest women ' s fra- ternity in the United States. Phi Mu presently has over eighty- two collegiate chapters. Gamma Delta chapter was chartered in 1933 and was the first national panhellenic group on the American University campus. The Phi Mu badge is a shield of gold, overlaid with black bearing through stars and a hand clasping a heart. The official colors are pink and white, with the flower being the Enchant- ress Carnation. Aside from being active in all campus activities, the members of Phi Mu engage in charitable works. The pledges strive toward participating in social service actiivties before their initiation. The Phi Mu ' s have been known for their love of sports, and this year was no exception, with Phi Mu actively partici- pating in such events as Powderpuff Football and Sig Olym- pics. Phi Mu ' s room along sorority row has taken on a new look this year and is known as the " blue room. " The highlight of the Phi Mu social calendar was the Formal, which was held in the mid-winter. 1P Carol Lockwood Barbara Lowden Janet Mann gamma delta Betsy Meyer Dee Dee Morgan Sandy Orletsky Debbie Russell Mary Sack Elizabeth Stanley Susan Strand Jo Ann Test Jerri Walker Lynn White 113 The Eternal Search For Truth Through... Communication COMMUNICATIVE ARTS Communication is the method by which ideas and feelings are con- veyed from one person to another. Without communication, man would still be living in a cave. All the wondrous inventions, innova- tions, ideals, and beliefs would have died with the originator. As man progresses in his search for truth, his knowledge is conveyed to the world through channels of com- munication. Performance Principles Class seated: Carol Ann Berg. Mabel Johnson. Janet Mover.

Much has been said, and un- doubtedly will be said, about the amount of work involved in the pro- duction of a yearbook. To the staff it seems something of a minor miracle that from a bundle of blank layout sheets and a jumble of half-formed ideas eventually emerges a pictorial record of the year ' s events. Not easily forgotten are the early planning sessions, the search for pic- tures and copy, and the frantic rush be- fore an approaching deadline. Yet it all seems worthwhile with the final an- nouncement that the Talon is out! Sometimes the pictures just don ' t fit the layout.

The Eagle, AU ' s weekly newspaper, has had as its aim this year to present accurate news to those who are actively interested in the school and to ex- press student opinion and thought. It has served as an outlet for all students in writing, editing, photog- raphy, advertising, accounting, and salesmanship. In keeping with national interest in a Presiden- tial campaign, the Eagle put out its first Extra this year to announce the appearance of the candidates on campus. Staff members will not soon forget the hectic Thursday and Sunday nights spent in putting the paper to bed. nor will they forget the interest gen- erated in the student body by the editorial policies. 1 18 Chalk up another ;id for the business staff.

The Bald Eagle staff does all the writing for the magazine but membership on the staff is open to anyone seriously interested in making a humorous contribution. In its attempt to create humor about the school and its administrators, professors and students, the staff has used both art work and composition. And some satire on the life at AU was not considered remiss by the campus comic heads. Every now and then we get a live one on the wire. 120 THE WRITER The American University literary magazine, The Writer, exists to publish the best student-written short stories, articles, poetry and art work. The maga- zine ' s policy is controlled by a Board of Editors, presided over by the Editor-in- Chief, and staffed by English and Jour- nalism majors. The staff members are seriously interested in writing and pub- lishing. All manuscripts are given intensive consideration by the Board and only those works of high quality and crafts- manship are published in the annual issue. There are three main purposes for the literary magazine ' s existence: to pre- sent works by competent young authors; to encourage student writing; and to pre- sent a cross-section of the thoughts and ideas of the student body. It is the hope of such a magazine that some of the writers that it prints will one day, through experience gained with The Writer, appear as full-fledged authors in the publishing world.

WAMU... Selecting records is an important part of WAMU ' s programming EXECUTIVE BOARD Station Manager Arnold Shaw Program Director J.

" WAMU, with operating facilities in the Communications Building, is the largest extra- curricular activity on campus. Its studios and engineering facilities are among the finest in Washington, D. C. In its tenth year of consecutive broadcasting. WAMU offered students opportunities to gain experience in announcing, engineering, produc- ing, directing, script writing and various other jobs which make competent broadcasters. Utilizing these skills, WAMU broadcast its own coverage of the national election. With re- mote crews at Democratic and Republican head- quarters, and " election central " in the Commu- nication Building. WAMU brought the latest happenings to the campus, including interviews with such nationally known persons as Paul But- ler, Senator Frank Church, and Senator Mike Mansfield. The regular program log boasts many different types of shows including information pro- grams, extensive news and sports coverage, and music. The record library offers a choice of clas- sical jazz, show tunes or popular music. WAMU annually broadcasts the marathon for the Or- phan ' s Dinner, College Council election returns, and A. U. sports events. Under the guidance of faculty advisor George Geesey, WAMU hopes to continue to move forward in the field of broadcasting.

The Varsity " A " team repeatedly showed its skill in national competition cap- turing second places at the Maryland- Washington Conference, University of Kentucky, and Dixie Classic, ultimately taking first place honors at Morgan State and placing 12th in an 86 team slate at Harvard. Preceding the Notre Dame Tournament this same team entered into a series of debates before high school audiences with Northwestern in the Chicago area. In conjunction with the debate program a series of public debates were scheduled at AU in which the na- tional debate topic concering compulsory health in- surance was argued with touring teams, notably the University of New Zealand. Of the total of 182 rounds of debate completed in the first semester, AU registered 1 10 wins in both novice and varsity competition.

American University Concert Orchestra JBB wSl The American University Orchestra, under the direction of George Steiner, has pre- sented eight concerts on campus this year in Clendenen Theatre, as well as three off-campus productions. Organized ten years ago, it has grown to become one of the finest amateur college or- chestras in the area. The orchestra gives an opportunity for composers, who are students at the University, to display their talents. Also, it performs the work of modern composers who would normally not be heard in the mod- ern symphony orchestra. The A.U. Orchestra is made up of stu- dents, alumni, and faculty of the University. Their talent provides for many an enjoyable evening on campus. 126 Under the dynamic leadership of its new director, Norman Scribner, the A.U. Chorus has been revitalized. The climax of a year of hard work and preparation was the presentation of Elijah by Mendelssohn in early May. The chorus, numbering 150 voices, is well known for its singing in chapel and convocations. They are pictured here during one of the weekly rehearsals. The A. U.

One of their most enjoyable performances this year was a Twentieth Century Folk Mass which was presented in January. Even during breaks, the subject of discussion is usually the play. THE A. U. PLAYERS Each year Clendenen Theatre witnesses the presen- tation of the American University Players programs of enlightenment and entertainment. This season ' s emphasis was upon modern American drama. During the year, the A.U. Players presented a total of five major productions plus two Readers ' Theatre productions. The plays were Beyond the Horizon, by Eugene O ' Neill, Mr. Roberts by Thomas Haggen and Joshua Logan, Fashion by Anna Cora Mowatt. Percy S. MacKaye ' s The Scarecrow, and Once in a Lifetime by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart. The readings presented were Margaret Fleming by James Heme and Francesca da Rimini by George Henry Bokes. In addition to their performing endeavors, the group has also put on social events. During the first semester, they gave a departmental tea which enabled the Players to get acquainted with all the Speech Arts Department. During Freshman Club Fair, the Players provided a booth to explain some of the activities which take place in the theatre. The year ' s activities culminate with Awards Night, during which the outstanding individuals in various phases of theatre work are recognized. first row: Martha Manning, Lee McAdams, Judy Buchanon, Barbara Wells, second row: Mr. Tal Russell, Mr. Robert Henderson.

Arthur Hobson Quinn This presentation of Mister Roberts marked the second AU Players production highlighting American theatre during the past century. While Mister Roberts would seem in marked contrast with O ' Neill ' s play, both deal with man ' s search for fulfillment and the fate of Mr. Roberts in search of his ideal is as ironic as the death of Robert in Beyond th e Horizon.

" Surfeited by the extremes of realism and naturalism in present day drama, we delight in the artificiality of the acting style and in the audience ' s freedom to cheer the hero and hiss the villain: the triumph of native honesty and worth over foreign sham and worthlessness. The Scarecrow represents the romance of the fantastic, with its basis in American History. It was suggested by Hawthorne ' s story of Fealhertop pub- lished originally in 1852. The story is concerned with the transformation of Satan to the New World and his use of a " pu mpkin-head " scarecrow as his instrument.

Every minute we are growing, maturing, reaching out for higher goals. Discussions in the dorm or in the cafeteria over cups and cups of cof- fee are as much a part of campus life as registration and classes. Dorm Life It ' s always more fun to watch T.V. A bright way to start the day. Up by eight. " Eight already? I just hit the sack. " The dawn of another day in the life on an " on-campus " stu- dent. What could be more fun than trying to find that alarm to shut off? The day officially begins with the eternal search for the soap, the toothbrush, the towel, and the rest of the " clean-up gear. " Nothing beats those early morning " hellos " which are ac- companied by half-closed eyes. Time to battle once again for a shower, a sink, and a shave. The crown- ing glory is looking for the key to get back in the room with only ten minutes left to get dressed, have coffee, and make that eight-thirty class. Somehow we all muddle through and the long day begins . . . ' 1 don ' t remember packing h Sometimes it ' s hard to just get through the day. 134 ...Men Letting off steam with a good snow-ball fight. for a long day The first stop after morning classes is the rush to the A.U. mail room for that long wait until all the mail is up. What could be better than a long letter or a care package from home? The next phase of waiting is in the cafeteria for a quick bite of lunch and some gossip as to what ' s going on around campus. More classes, more conversations, and eventually even some studying. Back to the dorm for some letter writing, more conversation and even a little album listening. Nothing beats a quick nap before returning to classes or starting the evening festivities. Dinner, more conversation, more study- ing, and another day of campus life has passed. " Just a minute, please. " Pirates or Yankees? •Or, ; " i?:5« After a hard day, time for bed. 135 Dorm Life A co-ed ' s life is varied. One moment she might be studying, the next flying to answer the telephone. Living in a dorm is a unique experi- ence for her. She meets girls from all parts of the country and from all walks of life. She learns about new people, places, and ideas. Dorm life is varied. You may find girls doing different things at all hours of the day or night. Some study or cram until the early hours of the morning. You can usually find several people in the lounge 136 ...Women watching television. Or you might find owe girl trying out new hair styles on another. Something is always going on in the dorm. Several times during the year the unexpected blast of the lire alarm awakens the girls and sends them out into the night with coats, towels, and precious posses- sions. Alter the excitement dies down, everyone files back into the dorm to get some much-needed sleep. Hayes Hall This year one of A.U. " s off-campus attractions has been Hayes Hall, located on the grounds of Sibley Memorial Hospital. In the future Hayes will be the home of the Sibley Nurses, but this year the imposing edifice housed Washington Semester stu- dents and Freshman girls. A few minutes ride down Nebraska Avenue through one of Washington ' s most beautiful sec- tions brings one to this residence hall. The problem of commuting to and from campus was solved for the girls through use of the " ' shuttle bus. " This green bus operated by students has become a familiar sight on campus as it performs its services several times a day. A familiar ight.

Immediately he was asked to do- nate $2 toward the orientation pro- gram. After having paid this small fee, he was entitled not only to a tour of our campus conducted by his student advisor, but he was permitted to take the English and history waiver exams as well as the psychological tests. Then began a week of adjustment, of fun and of laughs. The Peons attended the welcome convocation, the activities convocation, the picnic and Club Fair, the outdoor movie " Picnic. " the vari- ous open houses, and, of course, the traditional capping ceremony. But, alas! As all things do. Orientation Week came to an end. After a week of forming new and lasting friendships, of excitement, and of fun, the Peons settled down to the new adventure of college classes.

Studies The most important aspect of a stu- dent ' s college life centers around his studies. These studies are pursued in many odd places and in many different guises. A large number of people study regularly in their rooms or in the library every night. But others try to fit their study time in between classes, parties, or dating. This type of per- son is one of the strangest phenomenon of campus life. One is likely to see him any- where: sitting in the lounge, looking at his books between television programs or dur- ing commercials, sitting on the lawn and stopping every so often to talk to a friend, or else sitting in McKinley or on the various benches on campus. As a last resort, many students do last-minute cramming in the cafeteria. No matter how strange some of these places may seem, one may be certain that it is up to each student to find his best way to study — the only way to get through col- lege on his own. It looks like they ' re having fun. The spirit of Halloween. Fall Harvest Hop The Fall Harvest Hop. held October 28, was one of the first all-campus mixers. It was held in the informal lounge of Hughes Hall. The lounge was decorated with a fall motif, complete with pumpkins. There was even apple bobbing for a few adventurous souls. The dance is an annual affair, held for the purpose of getting together on-campus, off-campus, and the commuter students for a social gathering. This is one way of getting to know each other on a more informal basis. Music was pro- vided by a local band. One corner of the lounge held the re- freshment stand, which proved to be the most popular place of all. Good old fashioned fun. Where there ' s food, there ' s people. I I •„♦♦♦ • ♦»!

The Sophomore Dinner Dance, an annual affair, was held November 12 in the Presidential Arms Hotel. The dance was preceded by a dinner. This semi-formal function is one of the main social affairs of the Sophomore class. Each girl received a favor of a stuffed toy. Five girls were selected by the Sophomore class as Queen contestants.

" Rushing is an exciting time where the different sororities try to get to know all the rushees. Fall Rush is the most formal. This lasts over a period of three weeks. The first party given by each sorority is an open house. Everyone who previously signed up for sorority rush is invited. Every sorority sends out informal invitations to their second party. Invitation to the third party is by formal invitation only. After all the parties, bids are given out to the prospective pledges. Informal rush is later in the first semester. Dur- ing this time each sorority has one informal party and several open houses. Bids to pledge the particular greek groups are given out at different times. Spring rush is early in the second semester. The procedure is much the same as it was during fall in- formal rush. Sorority has much to offer a girl. Many girls who are interested in making new friends, activities, and the opportunity to contribute to campus life find a great deal of satisfaction in sorority life.

Trying to decide which fraternity is best poses a problem for the student. All the fraternal organiza- tions put their best foot forward in an effort to attract rushees. Everything is geared toward the day when the fraternity brothers announce the names of the students they have picked to pledge their respec tive organizations. Rush is an exciting part of life on a college cam- pus. It fulfills the task of introducing to the student the ideas of friendship and working together toward vari- ous goals.

Homecoming Homecoming weekend is one of the biggest social events of the year at American University. Held Decem- ber 9th to 1 1th, the three days were packed with activi- ties. The theme of this year ' s homecoming was " A.U. on Broadway. " All rooms and floats followed the general theme. Greek and Independent groups worked hard on their rooms and floats for the final judging. Friday eve- ning, the rooms were opened for inspection for the stu- dent body and general public. An informal dance was held in Clendenen. Saturday morning was the parade with queen con- testants, cheerleaders, and floats. That afternoon, the basketball game was held, with Georgetown defeating A.U. That evening was the big homecoming dance. It was held at the Indian Springs Country Club, with music by Buddy Morrow and his orchestra. The weekend ended in a big way with an unsched- uled snowstorm replacing the " Limelighters " concert on Sunday afternoon.

The annual Christmas dinner in the cafeteria, the open houses, the four A.M. curfews, the candlelight service, and the selection of the Best Loved Girl all add to the Christmas spirit. There were Christmas trees in all of the dorms and decorations and prizes for the best decorated rooms in the halls. Each floor had its own Christmas ceremony and party. Everyone took time off from studying or social functions to participate in group singing, room judging, and refreshments. Cleaves even got into the festive spirit by decorating the cafeteria and serving the students instead of the usual long lines. After the typical Christmas dinner of turkey and all the trimmings, there were carol sings and speeches. The various dorms and Greek groups held open houses, with much visiting and singing among the groups. A non-denominational candlelight service was held in Glover room. Girls living on campus and many of the off-campus students attended the Best Loved Girl Ceremony. All girls wore black skirts and white blouses which provided a background for the ceremony. Finally the big moment came. All girls who had been nominated for Best Loved Girl or Most Representative Girl retired. Then one girl, who was selected as the most representative of her class, came in carrying a candle. After Sandy Orletsky, Best Loved Girl, came in, each of the four read a selection of the Christmas story from the Bible. The ceremony was ended with all girls present singing Christmas carols.

American University was chosen as the site for the first conference to be held for the Youth Service Abroad program. Approximately 400 dele- gates representing 300 schools and 45 states attended three days of meetings and workshops. The conference, sponsored by the National Student Association, pro- vided a forum for the exchange of ideas and recent information about the Peace Corps program. Guest speak- ers, resource personnel, and advisors contributed greatly to the sessions, due to their experience in programs of in- ternational service. Some of the dignitaries attending the conference were Senators Reuss of Wisconsin, Cooper of Kentucky, Hum- Senator Hubert Humphrey of Minnesota delivered one of the major addresses to a workshop session. He spoke about some of the problems of the program. Many new and different ideas were exchanged at informa group gatherings. Abroad Conference phrey of Minnesota and R. Sargent Shriver — director of the Peace Corps. The success of the conference was due greatly to the hard work and co-operation of American University ' s H. R. Anderson, Dean Griffith of the School of International Service, and A.U. student Thomas B. Manton, chairman of the National Conference Staff. The hopes of the attending dele- gates and personnel could perhaps be best summed up by this statement of Senator Humphrey. " . . . The Peace Corps will become a permanent, pow- erful influence against the conditions of human misery and war, and a posi- tive force for the peace and progress of mankind. " An exchange student from Ghana, one of the main foreign students attending the conference, speaks out as to the conditions the Peace Corps will come in contact with in the underdeveloped areas of the world.

Competition ATHLETICS Competition in organized athletics is quite conducive to the eternal search for truth. Participation in intercollegiate and intramural ath- letics enriches the individual by giv- ing him a strong, healthy body to accompany his developing mind, and instills in him the principles of sportsmanship and fair play. Be- cause of these advantages, it is only right that this institution of higher learning offers a strong program of athletics on the variety and intra- mural levels. 183 Basketball 184 Ron Rawlins Jack Isleib Charlie Parrish Bob Lindquist Jim Shikora 185 Lindquist scores on a fast break.

The Eagles reached the finals by avenging an earlier loss to Catholic University defeating them in the semi-final round. 58-52. The team used a sliding zone defense to completely baffle C.U. This year ' s team produced many outstanding per- formers. Al Dillard. A. U. ' s Little All-America candidate from New York City, led the team in rebounds and assists. Al. a 6 ' 2 " freshman center, had 443 rebounds, a new school record, averaging 20.1 snares in each of his 22 games. Against Baltimore U. he had 26. his season high.

Some highlights of the year were the exciting Homecoming game against George- town, the upset victory over the Naval Academy, and the close and thrilling Mason-Dixon Conference Championships play-offs. An additional valuable attraction was the " A.U. Eagle, ' who normally goes by the name of Howie Gans. He contributed to the spirit of the Eagle fans throughout the season, and the Cheerleaders would like to thank him for his undying support. The Cheerleaders deserve the thanks of the A.U. stu- dent body for doing a fine job of keeping spirit for the Eagles high through thick and thin.

Soccer The American University Soccer Team finished up their fall season with a 2 - 9 record. Despite the losing record, the Eagles finished in third place in the Southern League of the Mason-Dixon Conference. A.U. was topped by Catholic University and by Lynchburg Col- lege, who took the league ' s top honors. The Eagles were hampered this season by a lack of experienced lettermen. The lack of offensive drive could be credited to the fact that four of the five starters on the forward line were inexperienced freshmen. This year ' s season produced several out- standing players and gave next year ' s squad many promising returnee r . The Eagles ' two wins came against Gailaudet (3-1), and Roanoke (2 - 1 ). Freshman goalie John Johnson, a stu- dent from Maret School in the District, was outstanding for one who had not played col- lege soccer before. Against Lynchburg, the winning team in the southern conference, Johnson recorded twenty-nine saves, the most shots stopped against the Lynchburg eleven. Ed Karoly, Mike Melniecki, John Hink- ley, Denver Haymond. and Al Montenaro all showed promise and some showed the needed experience. Senior Ted Awad turned in a good year as a defensive fullback. The team scored twelve goals against their opponents while having 59 points scored against them. Coach Howard Sorrell is counting on these players to provide the team with experi- ence when next fall comes around. 194 John Johnson makes a save as red Awad, Gideon Gadogbeku, and Denver Haymond look on. fm ? : j P s W " 4 f It looks like a rough play for the Towson goalie as Lynn Tammaro and John Hinkley charge in.

The A.U. runners compiled six wins and no setbacks in dual-meet competition. The team finished second at the Loyola Invi- tational Tournament, and captured fourth place at the Mason-Dixon Conference Championships at Bridgewater. Throughout the season, coach Evaul was able to rely upon his men to finish well up in the top ten, but without necessarily capturing the first place. This was the winning formula for the Harriers this season. Outstanding for the Harriers were John Mari- nenko, Paul Britt. Ed Orem, Paul Lucas, and Len Detlor. John Marinenko broke the school record for the cross-country event against Towson State Teacher ' s College with a time of 15:21. kneeling: Ken Callahan.

After losing 13-1, they came back two days later to defeat Catholic University 6-2. Captained by second baseman Hob Roman, this year ' s team has shown hustle and spirit. After a shaky opening they played errorless ball against Catholic U. Jim Wexler. new at the coaching helm this year, hopes that his team can stay above the .500 mark. The team has depth in everything but mound strength where only one pitcher, senior Jim Eichberg. who injured his elbow last sea- son, returned from last year ' s squad. The southpaw in his lust outing went the distance against Catholic U. allowing only six hits and striking out eight. The team will build around veterans Roman. Eichberg. shortstop Bruce Kessler, catchers Walt Dupee and Denver Haymond, center fielder Tommy Marshall and " Red " " Couriers. The 21 -game schedule the team faces this spring is strong. Besides Mt. Union the team also plays at Navy, Georgetown twice, as well as the Mason-Dixon Conference foes who al- ways provide strong competition. The National pastime — from the pitcher ' s mound.

Having good depth in both held and running events, the A.U. track squad pro- vided their opponents with top competition. This year the Eagle thinclads were co-captained by Bill Coward and Paul Britt.

Bernie Strauss and Fritz Maier looked promising in pre-sea- son practice, and Britt, John Marinenko, Ed Orem, Ben Amos, Ed Ball and Mike Sherman were strong in the running events. Tennis The tennis team this year underwent rebuilding alter the nucleus of last year ' s team graduated. Returning this year were Al Waksman, captain. Steve Greenfield, Austin Bleich, and Richard Zimmerman. Newcomers to Coach Frailey ' s squad were Hob Lieberman. Paul Arownsky, Bill Sloane, Luc Guiand and Art Kriegsmann. Early in the season the team dropped one to Syracuse and a close one to Catholic- University that wasn ' t decided until the last doubles match.

Field Hockey The field hockey season at The American University was extremely successful. There was much spirit as shown by the record of 14 wins, one tie, and only one loss. The team acted as a team. A season such as this was the result of hard work. With only five members of the team returning, the new material had to fill most of the vacancies. Of the returning members, three switched to new positions; Jo Ann Test. Priscilla Barker, and Pat Merone. The other two returnees were Pam Harmon and Dot Murray. Two outstanding freshman contributors, Petey Bainbridge and Carol Thaden; and the helpful transfers, Rita Napier, Sandy Smyth, and Pat Grof- sick, added to the spirited team. Other girls who rounded out the successful team were Ann Adams, Beverly Gatker, Mary Alice Hampson, Meg Bieri. Betsy Myer, and Barbie Sherman. The opposition facing American was quite formidable. Games were played against George Washington University with a 3 -0 result, against Maryland (3-2), against Mar- jorie Webster (4 - 2 ), and against Salisbury State Teachers College ( 2 - 1 ) . Other scores were Immaculata ( 6 - 1 ) , and St. Mary ' s (3-0). The team voted the best game of the year to be the one played against Trinity College. Coming immediately after a loss to Marymount, this win was made sweeter by the fact that it was the first win over Trinity in more than ten years. Thus an old tradition was stopped, and a new one started. Another tradition was kept up as the girls were challenged by the boys twice — each game re- sulted in a tie. A season such as this makes up for bruises and scars on shinbones and ankles. first ran: Pat Grofsick. Beverly Gatker. Betsy Myer, Petey Bainbridge. Sandy Smyth. Meg Bieri. Mary Alice Hampson.

U. player fights to send the ball up-court. The basketball team was picked from the girls who attended intramurals. The season began during the last part of the fall semester as the team played against Gallaudet College and Georgetown Nurses. At the beginning of the spring semester, the games came regularly — two a week. Teams played were Trinity College, Immaculata Junior College, Marjorie Web- ster Junior College, George Washington University, Marymount Junior College, and Georgetown Visita- tion. The season ended with a record of two wins and six losses. This does not tell the entire story — three games were lost by less than five points. Freshmen and transfers joining the team were Carol Geiger, Carol Thaden, Diane Billmyer, Sandy Smyth, Bev Gatker, Joyce Winters, and Betty Diener. Added to the returnees, Harriet Moyer, Ann Adams, Pam Harmon, Dot Murray, Kay Smith, and Reiko Nakawatese, there is promise of tremendous develop- ment within the next two years. 201 Swimming Preseason practice put The boys give the girls some pointers to improve their style. The swimming season began with an interesting ex- periment — swimming school. The boys ' team assisted the swimmers by teaching them the easiest and most effective way to do the fundamental strokes. More than twelve girls attended these special lessons. Six dual or trio meets were held during February and March. Events included in these meets were 25 meter butterfly, breast stroke and back stroke, 50 meter free- style, and a 100 meter medley relay. The team had four returnees — Jo Anne Test, Lorie White, Harriet Moyer. and Sue Foster; and many fresh- men and new swimmers — Dawn Durham. Helaine Schultz, Mafty Hopkins, Mary Alice Hampson, Meg Bieri, Sandy Smyth. Vivian Selis, and Carmen Wagener.

Intramurals The intramural program for women was sponsored by the women ' s physical education department and the Women ' s " A " Club. Both team and individual sports were offered. In the fall, tennis doubles matches, table tennis, and swimming were available, and in the spring,. tennis, volleyball, archery, bowling, basketball, and badminton were offered to those who were interested. In addition to these, a new program of modern dance was introduced under the direction of Miss Gay Cheney. The ex- periment was met with a good deal of success. Practices were held Monday and Thursday afternoons with an average attend- ance of twenty students. In volleyball, practice is needed to make a team perfect. fe JM Hi 1 ■ M ) i lk wj Ki +00 Miss Gay Cheney and her class follow the instructions of a guest lecturer.

Williams The American University Men ' s Intramural program has flour- ished since it was initiated many years ago. Each year new events have added to the program and others have been dropped as student interest has changed. In the fall attention turns to touch football, archery, doubles tennis, individual bowling and the popular swim meet, won by the Independents for the fourth year in a row. During the winter months basketball and the free-throw tournament are held. The spring semester sports are just as diverse as those in the fall including team bowling, golf, table tennis, soft- ball and the track meet. Included this year is competition in chess and bridge. All in all these activities help the A.U. student develop his athletic skills to the fullest on an intra- mural level. 205 The track meet is one of the highlights of the Spring intramural season.
