Much effort has been spent in securing photographs which would give an adequate portrayal of the past year. A contest to secure candid-camera snapshots of College activities was begun early in the year, and approximately two hundred and eighty photographs were selected and appear in this book. In choosing the photographs, an attempt was made to assure not only that every activity in College was represented but that it was por- trayed in its proper relation to other activities. Unfortunately, the intricacies of conducting this contest without any precedents allowed the campaign to fall short of perfection, and it is to be regretted that without any malice on the part of the editors certain organizations and activities have been either slighted or over- emphasized to some extent. Nevertheless, it does seem that the large number of photo- graphs included in the book does tend to cap- ture the spirit and atmosphere of college life at Amherst. As the number of photographs has increased, the amount of reading matter has necessarily decreased. But the shortening of articles is pro- bably a step in the right direction because it may tend to induce a few more people to read them. What was formerly told in words is now being told in pictures. As goes the old Chinese proverb, "One picture is worth ten thousand words." The other outstanding change in the make-up of the yearbook is the attempt to reduce the many and uninteresting lists. Faculty members no longer have formal summaries of their previous work but instead short paragraphs which contain the same information presented in a more informal and personal manner. Each senior is given a short write-up of his activities and interests as an undergraduate instead of listing his College activities in a formal style. Lists of class membership have necessarily been retained, but even here random candid snapshots have been interspersed to break their monotony. Lists of fraternity membership have been omitted altogether, but this has been compensated by including in the caption for each fraternity group picture the last names of all members including those not appearing in the picture. To call these changes in the format of the OL1o radical is to ignore the era in which it was producedgan era of pictorial narration and of informal writing. These two features supple- ment each other and are inseparable. The fact that the medium of pictorial expression was chosen in planning the make-up of the OLIO this year should by no means make this book serve as a prototype of books for years to come. Each book ought to be a singular combination of the prevailing fashion and of the peculiar tastes of the board which produces it. If the 1938 OL1ois viewed in the light of these considerations, it is apt to be considered quite conservative, for both the faculty and senior write-ups are in reality quite factual and almost impersonal. To have made the paragraphs more alive and personal would have been too great a departure from the traditions of the OL1o to accomplish in one year. The definite subdivision of the various sections of the yearbook corresponds more nearly to the tradi- tional make-up than did last year's book. So it can be readily seen that the 1938 OL1o is less radical than it might seem at first glance. But the question of whether the Ouo has introduced a radical change in format or not is a relatively minor question. The real issue is whether the 1938 OL1o does give an adequate representation of the College year. lt is the sincere hope of the editors that it will furnish enjoyment for today's undergraduates and to- morrow's alumni in reminding them of one of the most delightful years of their life spent at Amherst College.

The Chapel, third oldest build- ing on Amhersfs campus, offers an impressive center for the famous College Row. Framed by North College and Williston Hall, theOCtagon is now given over to the department of musrc. Ns. A , an Walker Hall, formerly the sent of the main administrative oflices, serves now as a recitation building for mathematics, economies, phil- osophy and political science. College Hall, originally the meeting-house of the Town of Amherst, serves the College today as the scene of numerous social functions. A Arnherst's thirteen fraternities are fortunate in that each house is surrounded by broad lawns and shading foliage, offering full op- portunity for recreation. 'Wh Q 'Lx War Fraternities at Amherst are not- ed for their spacious and modern chapter houses. Amherst's Alumni Gymnasium, completed in 1936, is the center of athletic activities for both faculty and undergraduates. :YW-7 TW Converse Library is this year receiving a large addition to im- prove the facilities for reading and to increase the amount of stacks. Spacious windows decorate the south side of Amhersfs new swimming pool. Facult HE faculty are a part of our community, as we are a part of theirs. We are the excuse for their being able to form a community. They are the excuse for spending four years of our life as vve have. Sometimes they are only an excuse. Sometimes they are the real reason that we have come to Amherst. ln Whatever light we consider them, the opportunity for making them a main justification of an Amherst ex- istence vvas presented, and acceptance or re- jection of that opportunity rested with us alone. ln almost everything that We have done the faculty have taken some part. The intellectual pursuits in which We have engaged have, in general, been in accordance with their idea of what was Worthwhile, and we have unavoid- ably been led to many conclusions with Which they sympathize. Their influence on us will last in varying degrees for a long time. Our ath- letics in which vve represented the College have been under their guidance. We have seen these men enthusiastic. We have been present when they expressed strong dislike. And often we have seen eye to eye on the same matters. Each of us have come to knovv a number of the faculty as individuals. We have come to respect them for the work they do and the opinions they hold. We have met them and Worked with them on a personal basis. We have found that We value their friendship and respect. -15.. Corporation Administration ALFRED ERNEST STEARNS, Litt.D., L.H.D., LL.D. Danvers, Mass. STANLEY KING, LL.D. Amherst, Mass.

They are the criterion by which Amherst is to be judged. In them We find a re- flection of the true value of Amherst in com- parison to hundreds of similar institutions of today. As such the seniors hold a real and defi- nite responsibility. Their success is more than a personal oneg it is of fundamental importance to the College. This year a graduating class of one hundred and eighty-three members will leave Amherst. Some have definite plans for next year, While many are as yet undecided. A few will return in the fall to continue as assistants on the faculty. Others will enter graduate school or one of the many fields of modern business. Behind them they leave a record similar to that of every graduating class. Scholastically and athletical- ly they have demonstrated their ability. As a group they have developed a spirit and a pride of accomplishment. But they are as yet untried beyond the limited sphere of college. Before them is an entirely new experience, one in which the competition is increased a thousand fold. To such a situation the seniors must ad- just themselves, and in such a situation they must apply the experience that they have gained here. HE products of a hundred secondary schools, our heterogeneous collec- tion of pseudo-educated youngsters sloshed into the annals of Amherst his- tory in the fall of 1934. Being babies of the first World War, we, the 1938 di- vision, soon forgot our rainy reception and joyfully entered into the friendships and activities which are Amherst's. The obstacles of pledge week having been successfully hurdled with a mini- mum of disaster, our class settled down to the normal routine of college life and quickly demonstrated that it was capa- ble of adding to Amherst's laurels. Only one game was lost by the freshman football team, while the soccer team tied for Little Three honors. The snows of winter found us deep in our books, striv- ing to build up a respectable average which the pleasures of spring and the proximity of Northampton would not dissipate too rapidly. At the same time we managed to turn out two outstanding teams in swimming and basket- ball, the former being undefeated. Spring came at last with its inevitable class beer party, which our capable president, Ernie Estes, handled so ad- mirably. As a fitting climax of the year, Sabrina, the goddess of whom there are countless tales, was officially presented to the College by the odd classes. This marked EDWIN F. SHERMAN, JR. Prefidfnt the end of a long rivalry between odd and even classes for the favors of this weather-beaten beauty, but it was a necessary step since the increasing num- ber of automobiles made the conflict for her possession more than could be competently handled. As sophomores, we strove valiantly to contribute to Amherst's reputation in all lines of endeavor. Gradually the upper classmen broke us into positions of responsibility, and eagerly we looked forward to the time when we should reign supreme over the campus. The spring overflowing of the Connecticut river was easily the outstanding event of the year, and Amherst quickly adapted its liberal education policy to include hospital and refugee work. Junior year found us closer to maturity, and we lost no time in showing our increased prowess. Especially no- table were those members of our class who played such a prominent part in defeating the Williams football team. These included Michell, Wilkening and Bullinger. The basketball team, supported ably by juniors Schweizer and Meyers, had one of its best seasons, while Ed Kothe was our breast stroke representative on the championship swimming team. Baseball found us on top of the heap again, with Wesleyan and Williams bowing before us. Nleyers, junior captain of this outlit, played a sparkling game all season, teaming with Howie Balme at shortstop to form without doubt one of Amherst's strongest key- stone combinations. But in spite of all these athletics achievements we found time to present eight men for Phi Beta Kappa keys and to establish under the initiative of Sager the interfraternity debating contests. In the various competitions on the campus we placed some of our most able members. The football managerial position was won by Rich Sutherlandg while John Mc- Grath, our iunior class president, was awarded the posi- tion of manager of programs and publicity. George Shay succeeded in winning the basketball competition, as Jack Garde became manager of swimming. Baseball manager for this year is Dick Poor, who was also elected president of the Sphinx Club. ln other fields members of the class were placed in posi- tions of importance. Editor-in-Chief of the Stzzdent, Am- herst's semi-weekly publication, was Dick Howland. Bob lVIcCollum was made managing editorg while Ted Sherman, present manager of the Musical Clubs, assumed the role of business manager. A member and soloist of the Glee Club for four years, Phillips was honored with the presidency of the organization, while Plumstead was given a corresponding position in the Masquers. With the completion of junior year and with the development of several outstanding men on the campus nine members of our class were tapped for Scarab at the annual senior chapel in recognition of their campus activities. Vfe are now seniors, still active, but rapidly verging towards the career of alumni. Our athletic record speaks for itself with championship teams in both football and basketball thus far. To Captains Michell and Schweizer Commendation mLlSf be given for their successful seasons in these two sports. Fourteen more of our class have risen to Phi Beta Kappa standards, and we have reached a new high in class unity under the guidance of our presi- dent, Ted Sherman. Ours has been a fortunate class. We know not what this ever-changing world holds in store for us after we leave Amherst's quiet and appealing camp- us, but we do know that these last four years have been a privilege never to be forgotten. Amherst welcomed us to its heritage and tradition when first we arrived, and it carried on with us a policy of expansion and develop- ment. ln our senior year we have witnessed the comple- tion of several new buildings. Future classes will derive the benefits from the new gymnasium, the pool, the theatre and the inlirmary, but our dividends come in the satsifaction of having helped to build them. In departing from Amherst we are humble, for we have taken much and given little in return. Our gratitude goes out to a scholarly yet human faculty and to an adminis- tration which is understanding, unassuming and equit- able. This is, by far, our greatest debt. ROBERT K.

YOUNG XX v Q George Goodell is a veteran of both football and baseball Squads. Underclassmen N underclassman is any number of things, exactly what, he could not say himself. An underclassman is a green, green freshman, he is a hard-working sophomore, he is a beau- tifully idealistic freshman, he is a gay, lazy, young sophomore, he is the product of a pre- paratory school, he is the outstanding man from his high school, he is a genial fellow, he is disturbed by serious reflections, he is a po- tential upperclassman. ln any but the most casual meaning of the word there is no such thing as an underclass- man. We are all underclassmen, varied only to the degree of one or two more years' familiarity through association. Upperclassmen have had a chance to dominate varsity athletics, to in- f7l fluence campus opinion, to steer undergraduate policy, to govern their fraternities. Under- classmen have not. But that they will is as cer- tain as that Amherst will play Williams next fall. lf there is such a thing as a fountain of youth, it is a college. For a college, as an insti- tution, has caught one small interval in time and preserved it. Each individual can become a part of that institution only for a limited time. The status of each individual within the institution will remain the same only for a limited time. New men are coming after him. According to the song, "the pea-green fresh- man is safe now in the sophomore class, the gay, young sophomore is safe now in the junior class." Juniors HE chronicle of the happenings of the past three years is not a history. Such facts as would here appear furnish only guide posts to the historian, who sees behind him the reality of whole- some growth and natural progress. ln this light we may best review the life of the Class of 1939. Our first year, under the leadership of jack Joys as president, is one which we regard as an experiment, an intro- ductory course in college life. Our ath- letic teams were moderately successful. Vvle made lasting friendships and learned to appreciate the problems and details of our experi- ences at Amherst. Gradually the green tendency of our early months as freshmen was wearing off. As we look back on this first meeting with the College, certain mem- ories inevitably are impressive in our minds. Bare- walled dormitory rooms, the haze of cigarette smoke in the fraternity houses, the excitement of pledging and our initiation period are never to be forgotten. Sophomore year we were free from stoogedomg but some of us, going into competitions and varsity sports, JOHN W. HAIGIS, JR. Preridenr soon realized that freshman year was comparatively easy. Here again we were impressed by many events and new ex- periences that will remain fresh in our minds long after the details of our class- room have been blotted from memory. A 14-13 victory over Williams in the fall, a basketball win against Army, a snowless winter and a new gymnasium are typical of our second year at Am- herst. Now that we are juniors and have come to play an increasingly important role in the College, we feel that we have shown ourselves competent in the activities and responsi- bilities set before us. VVC have taken full advantage of the privileges open to upperclassmen. Chapel has become less compulsory. We may drive cars with a lower average. But in addition we have established a high record in every field. Our football career has witnessed three vic- tories over Williams, including one freshman and two varsity triumphs. Particularly outstanding during the past season were Captain-Elect Jack Joys and Vic Pat- tengill, whose touchdown run against the Ephmen gave -72- us another Little Three championship. Ward, Seeley, Smart and Furman were also active in making the season a success. Shortly after the last game Kydd was selected as manager for next year's team, a position of high es- teem on the Amherst campus. The soccer squad, including Hunt, Guest, Hitchcock and Co-Captains-Elect Willis and Ray, completed a fine seasonal record with a disappointing upset at Williams in the final game. Harvard, Wesleyan and Mass. State were among the team's outstanding victories. Cross country, although only moderately successful, developed several individual stars, among whom were Don Min- nick and Captain-Elect Moyer. In addition to athletics the fall months offered numer- ous tea dances and fraternity parties. The latter witnessed several attempts at the "big apple," most of which ended disastrously. Campus polls sprang up and promised to become an institution. As a result of the mid-years we were given ten members of Phi Beta Kappa, including Homer Clark, our sophomore class president and a mem- ber of Student Council since freshman year. Amherst's winter sports were now in full sway. Snow and ice provided a short period of hockey and skiing during January, but since that time conditions have be- come unfavorable, thus forcing many of us indoors, In the cage, however, Captain-Elect Charlie Otis, George Hunt and Charlie Kydd were pounding the hardwood for Mr. Jordans basketball team, champions of the Little Three and twice winners over Wesleyan and Williams. Losing only two formal games in their entire schedule, Amhert's quintet was victorious over Yale, Springfield and Tufts. Jack Fletcher was the winner of the competi- tion for the position of next year's manager of basket- ball. Swimming for the first time in the new Harold I. Pratt Pool, the varsity and freshman squads were only moderately successful. The outstanding men of the Class of 1939 were Dave Garton, Clayton Jones and Captain- Elect Gil Wright. Garton's fine showing in the N.E.I. meet, held at Amherst this year, was in part responsible for the Jeff win in the final relay and a resulting tie for third place in the total scoring. Runner-up in the basket- ball competition, Maynard Guest will be manager of the swimming team for the coming year. As a result of recent announcements made by Amherst's newspaper, the Student, McKinley will be editor-in- chief during 1938-39, while Sletteland has been appointed business manager. These positions are considered highly desirable in undergraduate affairs of the College. Thus the Class of 1939 has progressed successfully at Amherst. In a few months we will enter our senior year. It is our hope that we will be able to further live up to the expectations that are held for us. ALESTER G. FURMAN, III Secretary-Trearzzrer -73 . I , P Robert L.

Sophomores s newly born sophomores last fall, we looked at the awkward and dazed Class of 1941 as they filed thorugh the variety of fraternity houses and real- ized that they were exact images of our- selves of only a year before. Their ques- tions, expressions and their complete ignorance of the Amherst rushing season was not unlike our own in the fall of 1936. At that time some two hundred and twenty-five of us sprinkled the Am- herst campus, pulling at the reins for books so that our first appearance might be that of a potential Phi Beta Kappa. Many of us started exercising, going to bed early and dieting so that we might look impressive on some Am- herst athletic field. The first week of rushing made us feel that we were genuine "hot rocks," but we were soon to learn the level of our true position. The class was quickly distributed among the diHerent fraternities, and we were soon witnessing a rapid transition from the highest to the lowest social position. It was on the athletic field that the members of the Class of 1940 first became acquainted. Enthusiasm was J. CARR GAMBLE, JR. President especially high for soccer and football. Our class cannot boast of a Little Three title in either of these sports, but it has produced a great deal in the way of val- uable material for the future. The soccer team was ably led by Co-Captains J. Williams and F. Stott, while the foot- ball team elected an excellent captain in Gordon Schick, who played well all season. The winter months ushered in new H activities for our class which gave us a great deal of enjoyment. However, mixed with the pleasure of basketball and swimming was the growing fear of mid-years. Al- though their record was not too impressive, the swim- ming team had some outstanding individual performers. Among them was Crawford, who was elected captain. The basketball team was more successful, hanging up a record of six victories out of nine starts. By losing to Williams, 25-23, they had to accept a three way tie for the Little Three title. Cordner was elected captain at a meeting of the team. With the passing of mid-years we found our class -.4 normally successful, as very few were unable to return for the second semester. VVinter was quickly disappearing, and we began to look forward to our first spring at Am- herst. The weather encouraged relaxation, while house dances and the Prom added to the enjoyment of the season. Spring athletics completed the year's activities in line style. The track team, led by Captain Coan, who es- tablished a new College record in the shot put, was unde- feated. Coleman was outstanding in both the broad jump and the hurdles. The baseball team was very strong, winning nine out of eleven games. The victories were largely due to the fine battery of "Ace" Williams and Captain Russ Christenson. The class elected for their president William Maxon, who appointed James Ruthenberg as secretary-treasurer and LaMar Christy, Jr. as choregus. Sophomore year began with the frenzy of the rushing season, in which we were expected to perform most of the hard work. From our experience during these days we realized that our second year did not give us the prestige that all new students invariably connect with sophomore. We were definitely inferior, not only in the minds of the upper-classmen but in the eyes of the incoming freshmen! At the close of rushing we wasted little time in assuming and upholding our rights as experienced college students. Our class played an important role in fall athletics. The Little Three championship football team owed much of its success to the wealth of sophomore players. Several of our class saw a lot of active service, including Roberts and Lawton in the backlield and Pillsbury, Whittemore, Coan, Cordner and Whitten in the line. The sophomore football managerial competition was won by james Houghton and Fred Byrne. Similarly, in soccer our class was well represented by the playing of Stott, Woods, Coleman and Neil. Throughout a rather severe winter our basketball team established a notable record, beating Williams and Wesleyan in both encounters. Only one sophomore, Fred Zins, was capable of making the honor of a letter award. The swimming team was greatly helped by sophomores LaMar Christy and Bud Neil. The latter, a record break- er, was outstanding in the New England intercollegiate meet held this year at Amherst. Spring should again find us active in each form of activity in the College. Our sup- port of athletics should be unusually strong, while our strength as a class, now a completely capable unit of the student body, has been evidenced by our already fine record. With the current year drawing to a close, the sopho- more class can look back on the great advances it has made. The enthusiasm and friendship that we have found cannot be dampened. We feel certain that our progress will be even greater in the future and that we may add to the prestige that Amherst now commands. XYILLIAM FRANCIS CORDNER Secretmj'-Trmrzzrer John P.

We came full of enthusiasm and zeal at the prospect of a new and as yet untried experience. We came with an already deep-rooted desire to add prestige to the name of Amherst. The annual rushing period, closely following our arrival, served as the formal introduction be- tween Amherst College and the Class of 1941. We talked of mortgages, Scar- abs, Phi Betes and possibilities for a successful athletic year. We were catered to, complimented, confused and bewildered. Our choice of fraternities was probably one of the most difficult problems that we were to face. With pledge buttons in our lapels and unbecoming pea- greens on our heads, we soon tumbled from our high and mighty position and assumed the true status of fresh- men. Many times we "wrestled with temptation," "praised Allah and the seniors," or enjoyed an evening of sport playing "tennis" Cars were washed, wood was chopped and every whim of the seniors and juniors JAMES A. REED Preridwt was conscientiously provided for. After the hrst six weeks spent in meeting scores of new faces, making new friends and, in general, becoming acclimated to college and its many intricacies, we set- tled down to a more normal routine. The classrooln and the athletic field claimed most of our time. The first evi- dence of ability in the latter was VVylly Lamar's triumph in the College tennis tournament, thus placing the College championship in the hands of a fresh- man for the second consecutive year. Although we did not make a clean sweep of the Little Three, our teams soon distinguished themselves in the fall sports. lt was evident that our class would have plenty of talent and lighting spirit to contribute to future varsity squads. The football team, led by Co-Captains Callanan and Smythe, battled Wil- liams yard by yard on a rain-soaked field, but the unde- feated Ephmen held the edge and Amherst lost 9-O. Similarly the freshman soccer team, captained by Con- over, was nosed out of the running as NVilliams managed to clinch a victory in the second overtime period by a 4-3 score. Our one Little Three championship in fall sports was that of the cross country team, paced by Co- Captains Prickitt and Tobey. As the season closed we joined the whole student body in celebrating the var- sity's brilliant victory over Williams and the annexation of the Little Three football championship. Temporary elections resulted in the selection of Tom Skeel and Wlimpy Smythe as class Officers, while Thomas W. Palmer, Jr., was the winner of the competitive exam- inations for the Porter Admission Prize. Mid-years pro- vided us with the opportunity for our first session of "college crammingf' Our attempts proved to be nor- mally successful as we received no more than the usual number of invitations to 'icall at your convenience." The end of the semester was the eagerly awaited date on which we might discard forever the faded and tattered pea-greens. The result was a great improvement in our general state of appearance and comfort. During the winter sports season the basketball team, with Bill Fleming as captain, proved to be out most suc- cessful representative to date. They exhibited a smooth type of team play in conquering both Williams and Wes- leyan and completed their season undefeated. With an ofiicial schedule for the first time Captain Plunkett and the wrestling team ended the season in a triple tie for Little Three honors. Led by the swimming of their cap- tain, Len Smith, the freshman swimmers barely missed an undefeated season when Williams came from behind to defeat them by three points in their last meet of the season. Their early season record included impressive wins over Deerfield and Wesleyan. The indoor track team showed a well balanced, capable group of per- formers. ln their only meet of the season, that against Mass. State and Stockbridge, they demonstrated their ability in defeating both opponents by a wide margin. Elections for permanent class ofiicers resulted in the selection ofjim Reed as president and Conover as secre- tary-treasurer. Reed appointed Jim Wilmot as class choregus, while George Ford was chosen as freshman representative on this year's Prom Committee. With the coming of spring we look forward with more than usual eagerness to the events of our last few weeks as freshmen. Thus, in this short period we have had an opportunity to experience the various phases of activity that have been offered us at college. We have made new friendships which may last throughout our lives as well as during the immediate three years to come. We have become ac- quainted with the nature and spirit of Amherst. We have come to realize the responsibilities that are ours and the expectations that are held for us. With the close of our first year we feel that the Class of 1941 has shown its ability and that it gives promise of developing into a united group that will do honor to the names and tradi- tions ofthe College.

There are now thirteen national organizations and the Lord Jeffery Amherst Club on the campus. They have be- come an integral part of the "Fairest College." An Amherst man's allegiance is first to the College and then to his fraternity. This is true inasmuch as the fraternities exist only Within the frame-work of the larger institution. Am- herst is the common bond that binds together its undergraduates. Fraternities exist as smaller segments of the Whole. They are an expression of the natural tendency to live together in groups and to pick friends from that group. Rivalry flourishes among the different houses. Rushing is a period of frenzied activity for all houses. Intramural athletics ohfer competitive sports to men who would be unable to compete on varsity teams. Pride is taken by each frater- nity in its house and its general attractiveness. Scholastic standing is on a comparative basis. The fraternity's intrinsic merit lies in the as- sociation ofmembers with one another. Through four years of close association strong friend- ships are formed. Men of different natures learn to live together in the same group. As each delegation reaches its seniority it takes over the responsible positions of the self-gov- erning society. -91- Alpha Delta Phi LPHA DEL'FA P111 was founded at I-lamilton College in 1832. Since that time it has grown conservatively, limiting its membership to a comparatively small number. The Amherst Chapter, established in 1836 as the first na- tional fraternity in the College, is one of the oldest in the entire organization, following those at Miami, University of the City of New York, Columbia and Yale. Arthur H. Baxter and Phillips Bradley are graduate members on the Amherst faculty. iv .V Spring finds sun-bathing and studying inseparable partners.

Johnson '38 interest and participation in intramural ath- letics have been constantly increasing. Almost every var- sity sport has its counterpart in intramural activity. There is keen competition among the fraternities both for the cup which is awarded to the victorious team in each sport and for the points toward the coveted Trophy of Trophies, which is awarded annually to the house scor- ing the greatest total number of points in all sports. The Trophy of Trophies was won in 1936-37 by Alpha Delta Phi. Although Professor A. E. Lumley acts as faculty ad- viser, intramural athletics are almost completely under student direction and control.

Records are frequently broken as each fraternity strives for a. few points toward a new trophy. The annual interfraternity track meet offers surprisingly good form in each event. During the last two years softball has gained a dominant position in intramural athletics. DU. and Beta Theta Pi clash on the intramural football Held.

Interfraternity handball competition is included in the many activities listed on the intramural program. Intramural wrestling develops potential stars for future varsity squads. .,,.,-H' Intramural Debate HE intramural debating tournament was accompanied with greater interest and keener rivalry this year than last, partly because of an increasing awareness of the advantages to be gained from this activity and partly because of an increasing student interest in debating. In the first round the question proposed was: 'AResolved, that this house approves the Amherst plan for a reading period." This question of immediate temporal interest to the undergraduate was well debated. In the final round debating the question: "Resolved, that membership in Phi Beta Kappa is recognition of the most worthy under- graduate accomplishment," Delta Tau Delta defeated Chi Phi. The members of the former team, Birdseye, Landry and Smardon, automatically became members of the debating council. Intramural Sing N the evening of May 18 the annual Interfraternity Sing was held on Octagon Hill. The President Olds Trophy, which is given annually to the winner of the Sing, was awarded to the Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity. The winners were led by Edward B. Williams '37, vice-presi- dent of the Glee Club, and Robert S. McCollum '38. Each group sang a College song and a fraternity song. Phi Kappa Psi rendered "Resound, Resound, Ye Circling Hills" as their College selection. The Sing was attended by a large and appreciative audience, drawn both from the College and from the surrounding countryside. The judges included Professor Vincent Morgan, Pro- fessor G. Raymond Hicks and Professor Charles W. Cobb. Psi Upsilon, led by Douglas R. Kennedy, president of the Glee Club, was mentioned for the only other place. Intramural debating plays an important part in the competition for the Trophy of Trophies. The Intramural Sing offers keen and talented competition. -110- tudent Government TUDENT GOVERNMENT at Amherst is carried on by three major organizations, the Stu- dent Council, the Council of Fraternity Presi- dents and Scarab. Through their support of each other and harmony with the college ad- ministration, relationships between students and the College are effectively carried on. The Student Council has supervision of all college elections, the awarding of all college athletic insignia and the approval of changes that are made in student policy and in those organizations whose personnel are based on competition. Management and regulation of football rallies held during the fall season be- fore important games are in their control. The Council of Fraternity Presidents provides the College and the fraternities with a central body which makes for the most satisfactory contact and cooperation between the two. Rushing is the most important matter which they handle. Procedure is determined before- hand and strict enforcement is required. Scarab is an honorary society of the out- standing men in the senior class. Its main ob- jective is the preservation and observation of Amherst customs and traditions. Scarab de- fines freshman rules and is responsible for en- forcement of them. Its members wield an im- portant influence on undergraduate opinion and policies. RICHARD M. HOWLAND HARRY F. JONES, JR. JOHN F. MCGRATH Scarab CARAB, the Amherst senior honorary society, is one of the oldest organizations of student government on campus, it is also Considered one of the greatest honors that may be attained by the undergraduate. Last spring in an impressive Ceremony in Senior Chapel nine members of the Class of 1938 were tapped for the society in accordance with the self-perpetuating custom of this institution. Founded over thirty years ago, Scarab has as its main objectives the observance of Amherst College customs and the preservation of traditions. Unfortunately, since the founding of the society many of these traditions have either lost much of their former significance or have wholly disappeared. Nevertheless, Scarab obviously maintains its prestige and continues to function as one of the three elements in Amherst student government. In addition to enforcing and defining freshman rules, Scarab, to a certain extent, is an influence on undergraduate opin- ion and policy. The activities of this organization have not, however, been wholly confined to the environs of this campus. Outstanding among its more recent undertakings has been the effort of Scarab in fostering a spirit of good will with Amherst's traditional rival, VVilliams, by virtue of a joint banquet with the senior honorary society of Williams, Gargoyle. The creation of a Scarab Alumni Association has furthered the attempts of the society to establish a Closer relationship between the undergraduate body and the Amherst alumni. The willingness and capability of the members of Scar- ab in undertaking their responsibilities has been meritor- ious. The Amherst College senior honorary society has proved its value through its encouragement of better intercollegiate feeling and closer alumni-undergraduate relationship. The members of Scarab include Richmond M. Suther- land, president, Bennett R. Meyers, secretary-treasurer, Richard M. Howland, Harry F. Jones, Jr., John F. Mc- Grath, Charles W. Michell, Frederick O. Schweizer, Renslow D. Sherer and Edwin F. Sherman, Jr. FREDERICK O, SCHWEIZER RENSLOW D. SHERER EDWIN F. SHERMAN, JR. BENNETT R. MEYERS CHARLES W. MICHELL RICHMOND M. SUTHERLAND -112- tudent ENERALLY considered the most important organiza- tion of student government at Amherst, the Stu- dent Council is made up of five seniors, three juniors and one sophomore. This group is chosen by popular election in the spring of the year preceding their membership. The usual functions of the Council include the super- vision of competitions and elections, the awarding of in- signia to the athletic teams, the controlling of the fin- ances of the Dance Committee and the supervision of any changes that may be made in student policy or govern- ment. It is also in charge of the rallies held prior to the important football games. Besides efiiciently performing their usual duties, the Council entered into a more active and progressive cam- paign than formerly this year. They began by revising the constitution ofthe student association, eliminating those clauses no longer applicable in the student govern- ment. An important service was rendered early in the year when the Student Council rearranged the system under which the dance committee was chosen. The president of the sophomore class now choses three members subject to the approval of the Council, and these men compete of the committee during their then, really establishes a junior for the chairmanship sophomore year. This, prom. A service which was probably more appreciated by the student body was rendered by the group when they sub- mitted a report to the administration which was the direct cause of the revision of the college calendar length- ening the Christmas vacation by three days. Finally, Council with the suspension of Touchstone in the middle of the year the Council reorganized the editorial board of the magazine and appointedjames M. Green '39 as editor, This year Richard M. Howland, Harry F. Jones, jr., John F. McGrath, Richard M. Sutherland and Edwin F. Sherman were chosen from the senior class, while Hartley Joys, Homer H. Clark, Jr. and John W. Haigis, Jr. were junior members. James T. Houghton, Jr. represented the sophomore class. From this group Howland was elected president, Jones, vice-president, McGrath, treasurer, Clark, record- ing secretary, and Joys, corresponding secretary. Dick Howland heads this year's Student Council, SECOND ROW:Joys, Houghton, Haigis, Clark. FIRST ROXV: Sutherland, Jones, Howland, Sherman, McGrath. Fraternity Presidents HE Council of Fraternity Presidents serves as the co- ordinator of fraternity and College administration, also as the supervisor of both formal and informal rushing. Acting to control and regulate fraternity affairs in Am- herst, it also handles business not under Student Council jurisdiction. The Council is composed of the thirteen fraternity presidents and the president of the Lord ,lef- fery Amherst Club. The Council's biggest job comes at the opening of the College year. lt is the duty of the Council to formulate and enforce all rushing rules. A member of the Council Rens Sherer, head of rushing in the 1937 Season. addresses the first year men soon after their arrival in Am- herst on the subject of rushing tactics and rules. The in- struction, information and advice given at this meeting have helped more than one bewildered freshman through this difficult period. The Council also sees that each fra- ternity in the College has an equal chance to pledge the men it desires. Since its organization in 1934 it has made many im- provements in the rules which govern the rushing period. This year for the first time a third informal smoker was held on Saturday night in order to let the freshmen be- come better acquainted with the members of the houses. The Council also has charge of the enforcement in the fraternities of various regulations set up by the College or by the Council itself, of laying down rules for the hazing of freshmen and of sponsoring the Christmas Seal Drive. The members of the Council were: Renslow D. Sherer of Chi Psi, chairman, John F. McGrath of Theta Delta Chi, treasurer, John Jeppson of Psi Upsilon, secretary, David Winslow of Phi Delta Theta, Harry F. Jones, Jr. of Alpha Delta Phi, Richmond M. Sutherland of Delta Upsilon, Earle VV, Newton of Beta Theta Pi, Franklin G. Allen, Jr. ofChi Phi, Edward L, Kuhn of Phi Kappa Psi, Thomas F. Power, Jr. of Phi Gamma Delta, Frederick O.

Each of these fills a definite need and serves a more or less special purpose. The Student is published twice a week. Pre- liminary articles and final accounts are given of athletic contests and of lectures sponsored by the College. The work of student organiza- tions which is intended for the College as a whole is reported. Campus activities are chron- icled. Feature articles, communications and editorial comment are written on topics which are currently being discussed. Tozeehftwze, appearing on the average of eight times a year, is a cross between a humorous magazine and a literary magazine, Effective humor or literary work of genuine merit, in quantity, is hard to find and so the two have been combined. Each issue includes a number of short stories, poetry and articles on ques- tions of current undergraduate interest. Car- toons, jokes and several regular columns com- plete the issue. THE Otio is published by the senior class each year and makes its appearance on the day of Senior Chapel. It is essentially a record of one year in the contemporary history of Am- herst. lt makes an attempt to preserve the savor of that particular year. While it is meant to meet with immediate favor, it is also designed to increase in value as time goes by. llj - tudent HE Amherst Student during the past year has at- tempted, first, to put out a college newspaper of more than historical interest and, second, to lead student opinion. To the first end, the board relaxed traditional make-up and sought to print one outside interview in each issue. 'iThe Press Box," a sports column, was quite popular, and the barbed humor of "Alien Cloisters," commenting on news from brother and sister colleges, stirred up several bitter controversies and indeed started a movement towards similar columns in other institu- tions. The editorial columns of the paper varied from excellent to sophomoric, but were generally entertaining if nothing else. lt was not until the seventh month of his Editor-in-Chief Howland presides over the Student board. S. McCollum. Managing editor of the Student is Robert term that the editor determined his policy. The editor, however, had several contests with the administration which added color to the Student, although tangible re- sults were not often forthcoming. Generally speaking, the editorial thunder was primarily employed in advo- cating sophomore dormitories, a common dining room, a more culturally inclined student body, a more enter- taining chapel service and courses in English composi- tion. The board as a whole attempted to approach pro- fessional standards of interest and ability and, it is be- lieved, worked harder for the Student than any board in recent years. Only by its endeavor and cooperation was the Student a capable publication of the undergraduates. MCL' Ted Sherman was this year's business manager of the Student.

Probably the most apparent change in the book is the short paragraphs on each senior instead of the former list of activities. This change was made to dispense with the monotony of the former method and to give a more in- formal air to the usually formal make-up of the year- book. The faculty section has also been changed in ac- cordance with the senior section, presenting them by means of short write-ups instead of the former summary of their previous work. The presence of the many candid photographs of the campus was introduced to give a more natural portrayal of the College than was rendered by the conventional pictures of the buildings. A. E. Mace,jr., editor-in-chief of the 1938 Ouo. Another new feature of the book is the section devoted to the spring sports as far as they had progressed until the time of publication. Previously, the articles on baseball, track and tennis were left until the year following. The editorial board of the OLIO is composed of Editor- in-Chief Arthur E. Mace, Jr., Managing Editor Charles E. Hills, and the two junior members, Robert E. Law- rence, sports editor, and Francis R. Kitchell, Jr., photo- graphic editor.

The lirst issue in October feat- ured a discussion of the fraternity situation, and the policy was continued of presenting a controversial article in each issue. Other regular departments included the light, rambling column, "Gambolling"g "Dust off the Discs " which treated new records and various dance 7 bands, "Liquid Air"g and a section on "Books" The November magazine contained an anonymous article at- tacking the compulsory chapel system, as well as the usual stories and departments. In December the evils of the Amherst managerial system were discussed, while Professor Packard's review of the War Memoirr of Lloyd George and an article on two symphonies of Siberlius stood out. The February issue featured a cover represent- 1 Business Manager Alex lmlay inspects Ll proof of Tozzrlartorze before it goes to press. ing an examination book with the contents running along the customary line. Complete reorganization of Taurbrtofze was undertaken in March by the Student Council in an attempt to widen the scope of the magazine and to make it a true organ of the student body. The existing art and business boards were taken as a basis, and a new enlarged editorial board was chosen after a meeting of faculty and students inter- ested in the magazine. The new board planned to resume publication in May with emphasis placed on the quality in the increased amount of fiction. Earle VJ. Newton served as chairman of the executive board of Touclartone until March, when with the change in organization James H. Green took over the new post of editor-in- chief for the coming year.

Dyer 'OO has been the director for five years, is the organization that releases all College news for news- paper publication. In addition to the routine duties of sending out articles on all the happenings on the Am- herst campus, the Press does some publicity work for the College. Thus one of its objects is to present through various mediums certain activities of the College which taken in the aggregate will leave the impression of the superior type of education at Amherst. This is done in the feature stories which appear from time to time es- pecially on the college pages of the New York news- papers. This year the Press sent news chiefly to Springfield, Boston and New York newspapers, while contacts were also made with hometown papers of prominent Amherst undergraduates. The coverage of newspapers for sports was greatly increased by arranging to furnish news to the Associated Press as well as to the usual papers. The Press also sponsored the visit to Amherst in February of Mr. Waldemar Kaempffert, science editor of The New York Timer. The members of the Press up to February were Richard H. Custer and Nathaniel Mills, Jr. on general news and James L. Woodress, Jr. on sports with Abe K. Lipsitz as photographer. When four new correspondents were taken on, the position of photographer was dropped temporarily, so that the Press now consists of E. Porter Jewett, Jr. and Giles M. Vllright on general news with Robert C. Thompson and Caleb Roehrig on sports. Mr. Walter Dyer efhciently heads the Amherst Press. ,.,, Wi' . V.

Outstanding among these are the Glee Club and the Masquers. The former has gained a wide reputation in recent years for its concert and radio work, while the latter, with a new theatre nearing completion, will soon enjoy unusual facilities for its productions. ln other fields the College provides for the particular interests of its students. Lectures and discussion receive continued support in the Pre-Lavv and Pre-Medical Clubs. The Band and the Lord Jeffjesters enlist many promising -121 musicians, while the Flying Club and the Out- ing Club include many interested members. Those attracted by political questions and economic theory are enrolled in the Interna- tional Relations Club, the Model League or the Amherst Union. Social service work is SpO1'1- sored by the Christian Association, which fos- ters an annual Embassy in which visiting min- isters are the guests of each fraternity. Phi Beta Kappa, voted as Amherst's highest honor, includes those that have attained scholastic excellence, while the Debating Council, an institution that has been responsible for a marked increase in forensic interests through- out the College, deserves high commendation this year. Masquers 1TH the prospect of playing in the New Kirby Memorial Theatre looming in the near future, the Masquers have again upheld the standard of excellent performances established in previous years. Presenting varied programs, the widespread interest in the organ- ization can be evidenced by the large number of students trying out for each play and the enthusiastic audience which attended each performance. Anton Tchekhov's Tbree Sirterr was the initial play sponsored by the organization on December 9 and 10 in College Hall and on December 11 at Mount Holyoke. The roles in the play were well divided among James S. Hart '39, as the weak thin-skinned brother, Eugene Plumstead '38, taking the role of Fyodor, the pedantic school teachergjames A. Walker '39, playing the sneering Captain Solyony, and John W. Haigis '39 as Vershinin. ff Professor Canfield inspects President Plurnsteads make-up before at Masquers' production. The second major production of the season was Shakes- peare's King Hemgf IV, Part I which was presented in College Hall on March 17, 18 and 19. The comic character of Falstafif was interpreted by John P. Pillsbury '40 with such spontaneous exuberance that it rescued the play from being an otherwise mediocre production and made it a deiinite hit, Geoffrey Bruere '41 distinguished him- self in his Masquers' debut playing the role of Hotspur. The ofhcers and members ofthe Masquers were Eugene Plumstead, president, W. H. Snow, vice-president, VV. R. Okie, secretary and property manager, B. Ringland, business manager, W. B.

On February 27 the Worcester Art Museum was the scene of another triumph for the Glee Club. On the New York trip the following week-end the club ap- peared at the Westchester Country Club, on a radio Club broadcast and in Great Neck, Long Island. During spring vacation the club took a short trip through the East. Lyman Phillips served as president of the Glee Club with Edwin F. Sherman, Jr. as manager. The ever popu- lar double quartet was composed of Stilwell and P. Vilil- liams, first tenors, Ringland and E.

Debating N a debating renaissance that has involved both intra- mural and freshman teams the varsity debaters have shown the way in a spectacular fashion. Both the number and calibre of inter-collegiate debates has been greatly increased. The varsity has already completed over thirty- tive debates, and two teams, one covering the south and the other the middle West, are planning a forensic vaca- tion this spring. Outstanding among the regular debates this winter was the no-decision meeting with the Oxford-Cambridge team in Holyoke on the question: "Resolved, that isola- tionism is impracticable for the United States in the modern world." R. V. Gibson andtl. A, Brown were the British debaters, and R. W. Reuter and R, H. Custer rep- resented Amherst. Amherst has split debates with Wil- liams, losing at Williamstown in December, but retalia- l Professor Garrison is Amherst's faculty head of forensic activities. ting in kind this March, the deciding debate is as yet un- scheduled. The Vvlestern debating trip will include a total of seven debates, and the southern trip will include six, among them Duke and Rollins. On the team heading west will be Hill, Parker, Taber and Power, while Sager, Reuter, Custer and Hutchinson will go south. The debating council, which numbers about twenty- live members, is headed by a president, Reuter, a vice- president, Francis, a secretary, Custer, a manager, Sager, and an assistant manager, Hill. Reuter is also the presi- dent of the honorary debating society, Delta Sigma Rho, which has nine members. The manager estimates that the completed season will include about fifty-two varsity debates. The varsity team is also largely responsible for the formation of the Speakers Club and for the enlarged program of the freshman debaters.

Though outwardly scorned by some of the un- dergraduates, these same individuals in serious moments agree with the majority of students that it symbolizes the highest achievement in the most important field of Am- herst life.

Juniors who have attained a grade of eighty-eight per cent after five semesters and seniors who have attained a grade of eighty-five per cent after seven semesters are eligible for election to membership in the society. The elections are held once a year shortly after the end ofthe first semester. ln the first drawing from the Class of1938 these men were chosenzjames T. George, Henry S.

It has for its purpose the promotion of Christian ideals among the students of Amherst College through active service on such projects as the community chest drive and the Amherst Boys' Club. Shortly after the opening of the second semester each year the Association invites outstanding members of the ministry or of the Christian faith to Amherst to hold in- formal discussions in the various fraternity houses on previously determined religious subjects. The subject for this year's embassy was "Moral Belief and Immoral Action." The Association strives to further the aims and ac- complishments of the National Student Christian Nlove- ment by sending delegates to conferences which are held Charles Cacligan has been primarily responsible for the success of the in the spring of every year at nearby institutions. Meinbership in the Association is open to all members of the student body who signify their desire to pursue a Christian Way of life and to further the ends for which the organization was founded. A senior cabinet, com- posed of tvvelve active members of the Association, and a freshman cabinet of fifteen members, selected from the freshman members of the Association, have charge of the numerous activities conducted by its many branches. The officers of the Association for the past year vvere: Henry S. Harvey '38, president, Randall H. Young '38, vice-president, Richard W. Reuter '38, secretary, and Henry B. Poor '39, treasurer.

Brooks Baker '01, chairman of the Ways and Means Com- mittee of the Massachusetts State Legislature, was the guest, and the next month Professor Noel T. Dowling of Columbia talked on law as a vocation. On February 11 a large group heard Professor Thurman Arnold of Yale Law School speak in johnson Chapel on "The lnflation of Legal Learning." Harvard Law School was repre- sented at the March meeting by Professor Walter B. Leach, who discussed law as a life work. Richard H. Custer served as president of the club, John W. Thomp- son was secretary-treasurer, while Professors Bradley and Loewenstein of the political science department acted as faculty advisers of the group. Pre-Medical Club HE Pre-Medical Club was founded in 1928 in order to give Amherst undergraduates interested in medicine a practical knowledge of the country's medical schools and to introduce them to the various fields and oppor- tunities of the profession. The Club under the direction of Professor Plough, faculty adviser, conducts a schedule of lectures upon medical subjects. The speakers are us- ually well-known doctors and scientists and professors in the chemistry and biology departments of the College. Among the live speakers that the Club has heard this year have been Dr. Ralph H. Seeley '86, who spoke of his experiences as a Massachusetts physician and Dr. Stephen Brown '28, associate College physician, who addressed the group on the subject of interneship.

To this end open forums are held and different speakers are invited to talk on various topics of international importance. During the fall of this year besides holding their regu- lar meetings, a nine power conference was held in which the countries were represented by the members ofthe club. Members of the organization were selected as delegates to the Model League of Nations, which was held at Massachusetts State College this year. They acted as representatives of Denmark and China. The ofhcers of the club vvere C. F. Cristman, president, B. E. Haller, vice-president, and W. M. Johnson, secre- tary-treasurer. Union HE Amherst Union was founded in I935 as an organ of student discussion largely through the efforts of C. E. Hulick '36 and H. C. Higginbottom '37. During the first tvvo years of its existence it sponsored several Well attended meetings, climaxed by a rousing political rally prior to the presidential election in the Winter of 1936, Since that rally the organization has gradually lost its important position on campus, trying to save its face by sponsoring intercollegiate debates, which function vvas hardly in keeping with the purpose of the Oxford Union, after which the local body was patterned. During the second semester of the present year an attempt was made to revive the organization by holding a student forum on the alleged excessive cost to the local fraternities of national affiliation.

Most of their flying is done from the LaFleur Airport, Northampton, where the club has this year conducted a ground school. They also hold weekly meetings in Johnson Chapel to discuss present business and future plans. This year the Club is entering the East- ern Inter-Collegiate Flying Meet for the first time. Most of the active members have taken solo flights, and two expect to procure amateur licenses, but only the club's president, Joseph L. Flynn, owns a private pilot's license. That flying does not appeal to the undergraduates alone is illustrated by the faculty members who partici- pate in the Flying Club program. They are: Dr. Manwell, College physician, Dr. Brown, associate physician, Pro- fessor Lumley, and Mr. Theobald. ...Fan Band 1TH the backing of the entire college and the as- sistance of competent directing the Amherst Band has in the last few years made itself an important position on the campus and in College activities. In their uniforms of brilliant purple jackets and white duck pants the Band marches resplendently at the foot- ball games, raises the student fervor in cheering to a high degree at the rallies and fills the gymnasium with their resounding notes at the basketball games. The increased amount of spirit is due in no small part to the Band. Through the donations of funds by the College and through regular rehearsals at Pratt Gymnasium the organ- ization has been molded together to form a very high class collegiate band. During the past year T. Y. Funstan has been manager of the band and R. H. Young its leader. lst ., FLYING CLUB Flynn, Raley, Smith-Petersen, Bruere, Hood, Schmid, Stokes, Theobald.

That it should exist is cer- tain. The social side of college life is one of the foremost thoughts in the mind of every sub- freshmang it is often the outstanding memory of the college graduate. XVithout it college would assume an air of boredom, a tendency toward stagnation. With it college becomes fully rounded, completely harmonized. A small college in which fraternity life plays an all-important role, Amherst is fortunate in that it possesses remarkable facilities for a successful social life. Annual house dances have become increasingly popular, while tea dances and faculty entertainment provide additional enjoyment within the fraternity. The Musical Clubs and the Sphinx Club have assumed even greater responsibility in regard to social affairs. The former includes in its activities the support of an annual fall dance, given either on the Williams or Wesleyan week-end. The latter offers a number of opportunities for entertain- ment, including an informal dance on the eve- ning following Spring Prom and several closed dances. ln contrast to the former practice of holding two annual college dances, a new idea has been initiated this year in which the Pall Prom has been omitted. The purpose of this change is to provide for greater financial security and hence a superior Spring Prom. Maisie Dance Committee HE outstanding event on Amherst's social calendar is the annual junior Prom. This year it is to be held on the evening of April 29 in the new Alumni Gymnasium and is to be featured by the versatile "swing" music of Larry Clinton and his 13-piece orchestra and vocals by that scintillating songstress, Bea Wain. The exceptionally low stag price being charged is expected to draw a large number of Clinton fans who have until this time been able only to hear his recordings. Before appearing at Am- herst, Clinton's band had won widespread fame by draw- ing capacity crowds at the University of Pennsylvania, Lehigh, Yale and Princeton dances and by his volumin- ous output of recordings. Responsibility for making arrangements for the Junior Prom is in the hands of the Dance Committee, which was Buehler and Palmer, co-chairmen of the Spring Prom. first established at Amherst in 1933 in order to meet the need for a stable system of holding college dances. Since the academic year of 1934-35 the Committee has con- sisted of six members, one from the senior class, three from the junior class and one apiece from the sophomore and freshman classes. This year, however, in line with the progressive spirit which dominates the College and which demands the maximum in efficiency, the social institution has been radically changed. The LordJeH Prom, which previous to this year had been held annually in the fall, was elimin- ated from the calendar because of numerous conflicting dances at neighboring colleges. This left the Dance Com- mittee with enough resources to obtain one of the best dance orchestras in the East for the Spring Prom. A new plan for determining the dance chairman was presented to the Student Council this year and approved. It provides that three sophomores shall be selected by the Student Council from a list of candidates prepared by the president of the sophomore class to compete during their sophomore year for the position of Junior Prom chair- man. A floor committee of three juniors was also ap- pointed to serve on the Dance Committee. At present the Committee is composed of three seniors, three juniors, three sophomores and one freshman. After this year the Committee will be on a self-perpetuating basis. The present members of the Committee are: Co-Chair- men Robert F. Buehler and john B. Palmer and Dick A. Clarke, representing the seniors, Robert M. Lawrence Charles Kydd and Thomas H. Kelly, representing the juniors, James B. Vvlebster, Robert H. Davidson and James R. Field, representing the sophomores, and George L. Ford, representing the freshmen. SECOND ROW: Ford, Davidson.

This year the club held its annual fall athletic banquet on November 23, spon- sored several dances throughout the year and awarded the Sphinx spoon for outstanding service to Amherst athletics. The officers for the year were Richard W. Poor as president, john F. Garde, jr. as vice-president and George M. Shay as secretary-treasurer. At the annual athletic banquet held in Pratt Cage the Sphinx Club invited over ZOO guests including members of fall athletic teams, sub-freshmen, coaches and head- masters of several nearby preparatory schools. Dr. Claude M. Fuess '05, headmaster of Phillips Academy, Andover, acted in the capacity of toastmaster, introducing the speakers, Coach Lloyd P. Jordan, Adam Walsh of Bow- doin and the late George Daley of the New York Herald Tribune. Mr. jordan congratulated all the fall teams on their records and extended his thanks to everyone con- nected with the season's championship football squad. Adam Walsh, a former All-America linesman on Knute Rockne's teams of "Four Horsemen" days and now head football coach at Bowdoin, gave an entertaining ac- count of his early coaching days. George Daley, late sports editor of the New York Herald Tribune, expressed his views on subsidizing football players and commended Amherst for its sportsmanlike attitude. Football Captain Michell thenpresented gifts from the 1937 team to the members of the coaching staff. After the banquet movies of the Trinity and Wesleyan games were shown, and the Glee Club sang a group of college songs. The Sphinx Club held two closed dances this year, one in December and the other in the spring. Continuing a policy started last year, the club also sponsored an in- formal dance in the Alumni Gymnasium after the Wes- Dick Poor, president of the Sphinx Club. leyan basketball game on January 15. The customary Sphinx Club dance on Spring Prom week-end was omitted this year by vote of the club because of doubtful financial support. On March 1 the Sphinx Club, in seeking to make its organization a more active and important part of the college, voted to increase its activity and to have a small- er membership elected by more rigid standards. Among the new plans are entertainment and service to visiting athletic teams, a program of fostering school spirit at rallies in cooperation with the Student Council and as- sistance to the Alumni Council in aiding alumni and visitors. The club also decided to continue its sponsor- ship of college social activities and to have committees selected for specific needs rather than assigned for an entire year. The reorganization was completed by the approval of a new constitution, providing for an execu- tive committee of three seniors and two juniors, which will control and direct all club functions. For the past year the following seniors were members of the Sphinx Club: Clarke, Cullen, T. Davis, Dostal, Estes, Evans, Garde, Goodell, Harvey, Howland, Jepp- son, W. Johnson, H. Jones, Kothe, Kuhn, MacCain, Mc- Collum, MacHarg, McGrath, Mace, Michell, A. A. Miller, Myers, Palmer, Phillips, Poor, Price, Reuter, Ringland, Schaufiler, Scofield, Shay, Sherer, Sherman, Sherwood, A. Simpson, Smith, Snow, Steinbrugge, Suth- erland, Wakelee, Warner, Wiggins, Winslow and Young. Members from the Class of 1939 included: H. Clark, Davidson, Davis, Dow, Fletcher, Fuller, Furman, Gar- ton, Goodnovv, C. Guest, R. Guest, Haigis, Hart, Hat- ton, Hitchcock, Hunt, C. Jones, Joys, Kelley, Kitchell, Kydd, Lawrence, McKinley, May, Minnick, Moyer, Otis, Pattengill, Poor, Ray, Scott, Seeley, Smart, Stearns, Stewart, Stifler, C. Taylor, Taylor, Ward, Wheeler, Wheelock, Willis, Wright and Zeese. The Sphinx Club, now undergoing reorganization, is Amherst's junior honorary society. -136- ...ww , F all Sports ITH the completion of an entirely mod- ern gymnasium and the development of a competent physical education department Amherst ofers unusual facilities for athletic interest. The College has taken timely advan- tage of these nevv opportunities. Undergradu- ate and alumni support has greatly increased. With such a trend the active participation of the entire student body has inevitably de- veloped rapidly, resulting in a strong tendency toward better health and physical improve- ment. Beginning in early September and continuing through the fall months, the majority of under- graduates take part in seasonal sports. Foot- ball, soccer and cross country are represented - 137 by varsity and freshman squads. Tennis reaches a climax with an annual fall tournament, While golf continues in popularity until vvell into November. Intramural sports provide competi- tive play for those who are not active with the hope of obtaining complete cooperation and participation in its student body. The 1937 fall season found Amherst's varsity football team again the winner of the Little Three Championship, vvhile the soccer squad remained undefeated until its final game with Williams. Cross country, although not as successful as had been hoped, provided several individual performances which deserve marked commendation. Freshman squads developed several potential varsity stars. Football LIMAXING a highly successful season with a 13-6 win over Williams, the 1937 Jeff football team gained possession of the Little Three football title and also a good claim to the mythical small college title of New England. Defeated only by the powerful Dartmouth squad, the Lord Jeffs rolled up some impressive scores, giving Lloyd jordan his best season as coach at Amherst. Led by Captain Michell, the team provided several exf amples of clever playing especially against Williams.

Soccer occmz at Amherst this year enjoyed one of its most successful seasons, the team completing its schedule with a record of live victories and one defeat. Under the able direction of Coach Allison W. Marsh a balanced team with great scoring ability and a competent defense dropped but one encounter, a disappointing loss in the annual Williams game. M.I.T. was beaten handily in the opening game, Am- herst showing impressive potentialities. A surprising victory over a powerful Harvard team followed, with Willis scoring twice. Wesleyan was defeated, 5 to 1, Co-Captain Jeppson ac- counting for two goals, and Mass. State succumbed in two overtime periods.

Cross Countr NDER the skilled direction of Coach Lumley Am- herst's cross-country team was launched into a season of severe opposition. The team, well favored by the return of four lettermen, Moyer, Gowing, SchauHler and Don Minnick, apparently had potentialities but lacked the proper balance. Co-Captains Gowing and Schauffler lead their team for the first meet of the season against a Dartmouth outfit, rated as one of the strongest in New England. ln spite of Moyer's fourth and Gowing's sixth, Amherst could not gain sufficient margin to down the Big Green harriers. Amherst then traveled to Medford to encounter Tufts, but was again defeated. Quinlan of Tufts flnished first in the meet, setting a new course record of 19:35 minutes. Moyer and Gowing again lead the race for Amherst, finishing second and third respectively. In the next meet Amherst defeated Coast Guard on their own course, with Gowing and Moyer placing first and third. Don Minnick and Stearns crossed the line si- multaneously for fourth, and Schauffler came in sixth. For the final encounter the Lord jeffs journeyed to Williamstown to place third in the Little Three meet. Williams won, with Wesleyan a close second. Moyer, Gowing and Don Minnick placed fourth, fifth and sixth.

The team boasted a strong defense as the low scores indicate, they also indicate a rather ineffective offense. However, the squad was hampered throughout the season by injuries which occurred at inopportune moments. Out of a squad of about thirty men Coach Soleau picked and drilled a team to engage Cheshire in the opening encounter. Cheshire narrowly won, 7-O, in a battle whose result was not decided until the final min- ute. Dick Kuehne, Amherst back, was the individual star of the game, accounting for most of his team's ground gaining. Travelling to Easthampton for their next game, the Sabrina yearlings ran up their one decisive Charlie Soleau gives his freshman squad a few detailed instructions. score of the season, defeating Williston, 24-O. Careless ball handling and numerous fumbles resulted in a 7-O set- back at the hands of Wesleyan in the third game. Return- ing to form, the Frosh trimmed Nichols Junior College, 8-O, with Bob Young's brilliant running featuring the Amherst attack. The season closed discouragingly with a 9-O loss to the Williams freshmen. Starting strongly, the Eph yearlings scored early in the second quarter and added a safety in the third as the result of a blocked kick.

The season opened auspiciously with a 3-2 victory over Williston Academy. This was followed on October 22 by a 2-O defeat at the hands of a strong Wesleyan team. With a brilliant victory over Deerfield the jeffs gained their first triumph in the nine year history of this rivalry. The final score was 3-2. The following week Wilbraham was blanked 1-O. At Williamstown on November 13 the yearling Eph- men splashed to an unconvincing 4-3 victory over Am- herst in a game hampered by a wet and wind-swept field. Freshman Cross Country FTER losing the opening meet of the season to a well- balanced team at Mount Hermon, the freshman harriers by faithful practice built up a well-rounded ag- gregation and remained undefeated the remainder of the season. Pacing the field in the practice meets, Co-Captains Prickett and Tobey proved too strong for their opponents, placing first and second in all but the opening meet. The second official meet came when our aggregation went to Williamstown on November 13 to face the real test with its rivals, Williams and Wesleyan, in a triangular meet. Amherst proved the strongest of the three teams, placing five men over the tape before either a Williams or Wes- leyan man appeared.

Here again the under- graduates are fortunate. The gymnasium and cage are the scenes of intramural, freshman and varsity basketball. The recently completed squash building provides modern equipment for enthusiastic supporters, while the l-larold l. Pratt Pool, dedicated late in 1937, is one of the finest in the country. Thus does Amherst maintain its unusual facilities, coupled with a strong coaching staff, for the success of the winter sports season. During 1937-38 the College was again FCP- 149 resented by Little Three title winners in both freshman and varsity basketball. Losing only twice in its formal schedule, Coach ,Iordan's squad included many sophomores and juniors as a nucleus for next year's team. The swim- ming team, although defeated by a strong Wil- liams combination in its final encounter, made a surprisingly strong showing in the annual Xl.E.T. meet, held this year in Amherst's new pool. Squash was again successful as the season ended with a record of six victories and one defeat, the latter at the hands of Yale. Fencing, a letter sport for the second time, enjoyed in- creased popularity, while wrestling concluded a normally difficult schedule in good style. Basketball NNi3x1Nta the Little Three title in four straight vic- tories and totaling ll wins out of 13 regular con- tests, the basketball team, led by Captain Schweizer, completed an excellent season under Coach Lloydllordan.

Wrestling EFEATING Williams and Wesleyan in the individual matches, but finishing third in the Little Three meet, the Amherst wrestling team completed the season with five wins and two losses. Opening the season against Yale, Amherst bowed to superior wrestling, 36-O, losing all the matches by falls. However, the Sabrina grapplers came back the next weekend to trounce Springfield, 25-11. On February 22 the Jeffs opened the Little Three series by defeating Wesleyan. Led by the two Minnicks, Cap- tain Don and Bruce, Amherst found little trouble with the Vllesmen, defeating them, 24-6. Chuck Dostal ended the meet in a spectacular fashion when he pinned the favored Holzer. After defeating Tufts and M.I.T., the wrestlers jour- neyed to Williamstown on February 19 to engage a strong Eph team. The match was decided in the last bout when Dostal pinned Tenney to give Amherst the needed margin of victory, 18-14. Handicapped by injuries suffered by Cranshavv, Bene- dict and Dostal, the Sabrina matmen lost the Little Three title to Williams in the final triangular meet.

Relay OMPETING in three meets, the Amherst relay team faced stiff competition throughout the season and managed to gain one second place and two thirds. The team this year was captained byjim Gowing and coached by Al Lumley. Opening the season was the Prout Memorial Games held under the auspices of the Knights of Columbus in the Boston Garden. Minus the services of Steinbrugge, who was forced out of competition by sickness, the Jeff relay team composed of Jeppson, Manson, Dow and Gowing finished third behind Northeastern and Middle- bury. The winner's time was 31312. In the college mile of the Milrose Games the Amherst team showed improvement by beating Middlebury, but finishing third behind the University of Maryland and Bowdoin. Manson, Steinbrugge, Dow and Gowing ran Dow, relay and track veteran, was outstanding this winter on the Jeff squad. for the Jeffs. Maryland's winning time was 3:Z9.6. The last meet, held by the Boston Athletic Association in the Boston Garden, found Amherst running second to Bowdoin and followed by Middlebury. Bowdoin's time was 3:3l.6. Coach Lumley had changed the order for this meet, moving Gowing up to third and Manson dropping back to the anchor position. Steinbrugge and Dow were the other members of the team.

Fencing N its second year as a varsity sport fencing has enjoyed a moderately successful competitive season and an in- crease both in the squad and in the interest taken by the men who reported. Professor Charles H. Toll and Mr. Henry F. Williams both have aided with the coaching. The final results show two victories, two very narrow losses, defeat at the hands of Yale and second place in the Little Three tournament. In the first match of the year Springfield was very de- finitely outclassed by a score of 13 to 4. The second match, with Bowdoin, was held only in foils, and Amherst won this, 5-4. The two following matches, with Brown and Drew University, were lost by the close decision of 8 to 9. An expert team from Yale, made up of varsity and junior varsity members, beat Amherst, 5-O. Williams, Wesleyan and Amherst met to decide the Little Three title in the Alumni Gymnasium at the end of the season. Williams, with a well-rounded team, edged out Amherst, and Wesleyan trailed them both. Cullen, the Amherst captain, won the individual foils championship. Of the men who had competed all season Cullen, Hor- vath, Kerr, Sargent, Marcy and Birdseye were awarded letters.

Gillespie and Professor Allison W. Marsh squash was recognized as a varsity sport, and a team formed which won six out of its seven matches. The outstanding ability of several of the players in addition to a string of competent players pro- duced a strong combination. The season opened with a victory over Trinity, 4-1. In the next meet a full ten-man team played Wesleyan and beat them, 9-1. The match with Yale at New Haven was the only defeat of the season. At the New England intercollegiates Amherst met Williams for the first time and won, 6-4. The defeat of Dartmouth on their own courts, 4-3, was probably the major victory of the season.

A larger group than ever before worked out steadily and provided the enthu- siasm and interest necessary to a successful season. lnas- much as all the meets were open to any entrants, compara- tive standings are the criterion of success, rather than a particular victory or defeat. The team acquitted itselfwell in a number of meets and can claim a greater measure of success than any previous Amherst team. After having to postpone and linally cancel a Little Three meet for the second year in succession, Schaumer, the captain, and Cobb, later to be captain-elect, entered the Eastern Downhill Championships over the Thunder- bolt Trail on Mount Greylock and placed twelfth and nineteenth respectively. At the Dartmouth Winter Carni- val Amherst placed ninth in competition with the ten best teams in the East. The Intercollegiate Ski Union Championships held at Middlebury gave the Amherst team a chance to show their real worth. Due to the work of Schaufller, Cobb, Reid and Ball the team placed fifth in a held of fifteen teams, ahead of Harvard, Yale, Princeton and NVilliams. In the Massachusetts Downhill Championships this same quartet placed Amherst second. After a season in which the presence of foreign visitors made competition unusually strenuous, racing classifi- cations from the Eastern Amateur Ski Association were awarded to Shaw, Fitts, Dietz, Crandell and Cummings in addition to the four previously mentioned men. -44 Skiing has become increasingly popular at Amherst, where numerous hills and trails are within easy travelling distance.

Bruhn was undefeated. The Class of 1941 includes an unusually large number of unusually good basketball players, and a hard scramble for positions on the starting line-up went on all season. It should produce as satisfac tory results in the future as it has this year. The first game, against Williston, was won, 26-18, but against Bay Path in their second game the yearlings won by two points only, 28-26. Teams from Vermont Acade- my and Nichols Junior College were easily handled, by scores of 45-19 and 50-31, respectively. Against Suf- field the freshmen had a close game which they finally won, 29-27. Deerfield succumbed, 28-23. The Williams freshmen were beaten by a score of 47-32, but the Wesleyan freshmen almost spoiled the record when they brought the final score to 27-25.

After defeating the Pittsfield and the Springfield Boys Clubs, the freshmen journeyed to Deerfield on january 19, where Murray took two places to aid the young Sabrinas in a 34-33 Victory. Meeting Wesleyan in Pratt Pool on February 19, the freshmen again made one point their margin of victory, winning, 38-37. Losing the final event and consequently the meet, the freshmen were defeated in their final showing at Will- iamstown on March 5 by the score of 39-36. ln this meet Bacon gained two first places to rank thejeffs. Freshman Wrestling INNING three matches and losing one, the fresh- man wrestling team completed a successful season with a loss to Williams in a closely fought match decided by the referee's decision in the last bout. The frosh opened their schedule on January 22 with a victory over W'esleyan, 31-5. Hastings, Rossmassler and Detwiler contributed five points each to the Amherst total by throwing their opponents. Mount Hermon and Tufts proved easy victims to the freshman matmen in the following two meets, losing by 29-5 and Z2-8, respectively. Journeying to Williamstown on March 2, the young Jeffs fell before the Eph freshmen, 14-11. Plunkett, Am- herst captain, scored the only jeff fall.

For those whose ambition turns to tennis, twenty-one tennis courts are available for prac- tice, while the better players competing for the varsity or freshman teams are ably tutored by Frank Gillespie, coach of squash and tennis, whose abilities have been proved by the suc- cess of his teams. The numerous diamonds, sit- uated on Hitchcock Field, provide sites for - 163 many intramural softball games, as well as a practice field for Milt Bruhn's freshman base- ball team. The varsity, coached by Paul Eck- ley, goes through its daily workouts on Pratt Field, and the noise of bat meeting ball is ac- companied by the firing of the starter's gun, for Al Lumley's track team also holds its daily workout on Pratt Field. The two nearby golf courses hold the daily attention of many of the followers of this sport.

A ball is called as one comes close inside. Coach Eckley says 21 word to the team which has just come in from the field for its turn at bar. l Avery watches one and decides it is too high. First aid is given in the Vermont game to a. player hit by zz pitched ball. Goodell on first catches the throw from the in- field to make an easy put-out in the opening game. The bat starts moving to meet the ball and put another man on base. The team gets settled on the bench after retiring the opposing team. Schick has just connected with a nice pitch and is about to step out for first base. l 167 Track HE Amherst track team, which hasn't lost a Little Three championship in six years, showed considera- ble strength early in the 1938 season. Coach Lumley an- nounced that his team would meet Tufts and Wesleyan at home and then travel to Brown, Williams and the N.E.1.'s. In their opening encounter on April 16, Amherst swept eleven flrsts to win from Tufts,79y2f46M.

R. nw' l -171- Tennis HE 1938 varsity tennis team is looking forward to a successful season. It is a team of veterans, for last year's squad lost only two members by graduation, Cap- tain Howell and T. Taylor. Although the loss of Tom Rodman, number one on the 1940 freshman team and College champion, has been a hindrance to Coach Frank Gillespie, he is chiefly concerned at present in developing one more man to complete the starting roster, and one or two capable substitutes. The returning lettermen, all of whom saw considerable action last year, are Captain Reider, Keesey, J. Taylor, Hunt and Beloff. The schedule, which is being planned by Manager Reuter and which is not yet complete, is an ambitious one. It includes two sectional trips, the first to New York, the second to Boston. The New York trip is sched- uled early in May and includes a match with Army at West Point and other matches as yet uncertain. The Bos- ton trip is planned for the middle of the month, but dates and opponents are not definite. Williams will be played on May 25 at Williamstown. Williams won decisively at their last meeting, but it is expected that this year there will be a materially diHferent result.

Golf OURNEYING to Colgate and Cornell on April 22, the varsity golf team will commence an unusually large schedule which includes twelve matches. Among their opponents are found a strong Dartmouth team as well as last year's victors, Holy Cross. The season will be con- cluded with the Little Three matches to be held on May 25 and 28. Although Captain Jones and Riemer are the only two returning lettermen, the team expects able support from Bingham and Fall, the mainstays of last year's freshman team. Despite the fact that the team did not go on any south- ern trip during spring vacation, the good condition of the local courses has allowed daily practice, and the golfers should have ample practice for their first match. The candidates for the team are due to play a qualifying Captain and Manager "Chuck" Jones takes just one stroke to get out of trouble. round April 20, at which time the six men to make the first trip will be chosen.

Coach Bruhn's chief dilii- culty, a shortage of pitchers, was emphasized by the fact that many contests were only a few days apart, which meant a large pitching staff was necessary from which to draw. There was an abundance of material for other positions, and as a result, competition was strong for places in the starting lineup. The definite starters for the first game were Norris at first, Kelly at second, Ford at shortstop, Partenheimer at third, and Newall, Steere and Callanan in the outfield. The battery was to include either Skeel or Johansson behind the plate and Reed and Marberger as pitcher. X Amherst freshman team relaxes on the bench, awaiting turn at bat. With just the two changes in the schedule the team was seeking revenge for last year's close game with Wil- liams when the Ephmen's 8-7 victory cost the Jeffs the Little Three title. The 1937 season of 5 victories, 1 tie and 2 losses was the record which this year's team hoped to surpass.

Freshman Track 1TH practice having begun immediately after spring vacation, the freshman track team has begun serious work for its first encounter to be held with Cheshire Academy on April 29, Although the team shows few outstanding runners, early indications show that a well balanced team can be expected. Prickitt has exhibited good form in the mile, while Tobey seems to be best in the 880. Morrow and Michener have been competing for places in the quarter mile, and Morrow's time in the dashes shows that he should be a consistent point-winner. Kohler and Smythe are entered in the field events, and Edes will probably be entered in the high jump. Besides the engagement with Cheshire, the frosh will go to Providence for a dual meet with Brown on May 7, A freshman pole-vaulter is over safely and on the way down. and they will compete in the Little Three meet, which this year is to be held at Amherst on May 12. Indications for a successful season were given during the winter when most of the members of the spring team were entered in an indoor meet in which the freshmen vanquished the Mass. State frosh. Last year the 1940 freshmen completed an undefeated track season. The summary of the 1937 season: , M ss.

The team will probably be centered about Lamar, winner of the College tournament, and highly rated national player. Kronemeyer is another candidate whose early-season form is good and who, with Lamar, should form a strong nucleus about which Coach Gillespie can build his team. The courts are in fine shape and should facilitate the daily practice which was begun immediately after spring vacation. The schedule includes four matches, one with Deer- field and another with Williston, as well as the Little Three encounters. Freshman Golf HE 1938 freshman golf team faces a larger and more arduous schedule than have its predecessors for sever- al years. The opening match is with North Worcester High School on May 3. Then three more opponents are met in quick succession: Dartmouth Frosh on May 4, Cheshire on May 6 and Hotchkiss on May 7. Following a two weeks lay-off, the team meets its two traditional rivals, Wesleyan frosh on May 17 and the Williams year- lings on May 21. The freshmen close their season against Loomis on May 28. This-seven match schedule is diflicult, chiefly because the games are so arranged that the first four matches must be played between May 3 and May 7. The members of the team are Baird, Cole, Davis, Durkes, Ingraham, Machmer, Pfau and Pomeroy.

Not only the basic daily essentials of food and clothing are provided, but also the numer- ous needs attendant on the varied social, recre- ational and athletic activities of the under- graduates are filled. Here too are represented concerns which do business with Amherst College itself, concerns dealing with the broad field of building and the less patient but equally - 177 essential realms of maintenance and repair. In these pages these representative firms are observed not as impersonal organizations, but rather they appear as organizations closely concerned with freshman, sophomore, junior and senior alike. These firms are seen to affect undergraduates not only by their friendly and reliable services in a business capacity, but also in the extra-curricular field of loyal support be- hind the various outside activities of Amherst College. In short, here We find a veritable cross-sec- tion of the college days of the Amherst under- graduate. LA. In the following pages numerous business firms have contributed their share in the publication of THE OLIO. Tested critically by Amherst men, these merchants represent houses of approved standing, and they will merit the patronage of the College ofiicially and the students individually.
