Cover Design 1955 CLIC Amherst College Amherst, Massachusetts Foreword For a long time now, a yearbook, like a degree or a cap and gown or a key or a ring, has been one of the manifest symbols of graduation from college. It is generally felt that college years are memorable and important years, and ought to be recorded in bound and illustrated editions replete with pictures and comments, and this feeling has persisted through time so that yearbooks have become a tangible tradition of college. Almost as if people, realizing the corroding effects of time upon all things, have wanted to galvanize their memories with words and pictures-a yearbook has come to be an invaluable mnemonic, a sentimental bulwark against age and transition. Yet this simplicity of purpose belies the difficulties inherent in any attempt to give definition to that which has come to pass. A college year resists being cast into neat sentences. It is a tenuous, important thing-an emotional quantity in the life of every member of the community. A college year is eight months of doing and thinking and growing for each individual involved. That which the undergraduate and graduate shall remember ofa year in college, that which they shall consider meaningful, shall be deter- mined by uniquely personal criteria. The editors of this volume have realized these things and rather than attempting to measure this most recent year at Amherst in its true perspective from the dubious vantage of May, have merely tried to describe objectively the current facets of an Amherst education-in words and pictures to delineate the events of 1954-55 which undoubtedly shall have left their imprints upon the individual and his College. This evidence shall follow, and we can only be mindful of the fact that each shall give it meaning and interpretation as befits his peculiar context. ' Dedication Professor Laurence B. Packard left his mark, that of intellectual curiosity intermingled with dynamic instruction and understanding kindliness, indelibly on the Amherst campus. During his 30 years as our foremost historian, Professor Packard taught more College students than any other man. He authored two books, THE COMMERCIALREVOLUTION and THE AGE OF LOUIS XIV and was the founder and co-editor of the Berkshire Studies in European History. Creator of the History 1-2 sequence, his contributions to Amherst education are far from temporal, for the legend of this course and its antecedents will rightfully be told and retold to Amherst men for years to come. To the mem- ory of Laurence B. Packard, we respectfully dedicate the 1955 OLIO. Professor Charles L. Sherman came to the Amherst College faculty in 1929 as Associate Professor of Latin. A versatile and dedicated scholar, he remained one of the College's outstanding Citizens for 25 years. Appointed full professor in the Departments of History and Political Science in 1940, Professor Sherman contrib- uted to a number of professional iournals and was the editor of John Locke's TREATISE ON CIVIL GOVERNMENT, as well as translator and editor of DIODOROUS' HISTORY. Those of us who came into contact with him, whether in the classroom, on the tennis court, or anywhere in Am- herstown, will never forget his infectious lightheartedness, sincere solicitousness, and unfailing interest in campus affairs. To the memory of Charles L. Sherman, teacher and friend, we respectfully dedicate this yearbook. The Foirest College 1954- 5 God help the youth who hums an old tune. Looking back at Amherst, one might allow the pixie of his imagina- tion to light upon an athletic vein of the past year: to rejoice with the victor and emphatize with the vanquished, to speculate over the myth of McLaughry's migration, the depth of Dunbar's disappointment or the tribulations of trite training trivia. Or, were he more inclined toward intel- lectual reverie, thoughts of increased requirements in hu- manities and languages, six-week or eight-week marking periods, the perceptive Theta Xi report, and the administra- tion's admonitions against "staying too loose" might be the colorful pieces in his mental patchwork. Should he hap- pen to be a social enthusiast, after perusing his cluster of "gentleman C's," he might recall with nostalgia the solici- tousness of Art Davenport, who agreed to audit the house social accounts, the attainment of TOOW: rushing, the some- what rude interiection of pledge training into the otherwise serene spring season, the tranquil beauty of Paradise Pond, or the rotten smell at Barsi's. Were his thoughts dominated by campus activities, perhaps the great literary merger, which interrupted SABRINA'S tainted act as well as CON- TEXT'S sophisticatedly dry production, or the disappear- ance of a longstanding class rivalry, or the College's apathetic reception of Swarthy Sabrina, or the speeches of Kinsey and Commager fon politics at home and abroadj would breach the widening gap between then and now. However, regardless of which may be his principal strain of reiminiscence, the individual must temper it to some degree with the broadening influence of the Amherst en- tirety. Accordingly, we see that this year, as usual, the football and basketball teams performed well. Though the wrestlers floundered and the soccer team slumped notice- ably, the squashmen finished up strong and the swimmers 257 iff' 5221 a 6 more than balanced the scales of success. "The Skaters," produced by Walter Orr and directed by Red Richardson, flopped in its eight-week run in spite of Dick Button's sen- sational send-off, but another producer, Eugene Wilson, predicts an improvement in seasons to come. Persistent perfectionist Paul Eckley molded a green pitching staff and a porous infield into a moderately successful team, with training rules to match, but not without the help of Ben McCabe, unpredictable weather, and some hustling sopho- mores. Lumley's men "took bigger steps faster" and Rostas' charges played several "theenking games" to compensate for Count Reid's court blues. From Johnson's ivory tower, legislation shook the rigor mortis out of tradition. Sixteen-day vacations were rele- gated to the realm of the make-believe, and law enforce- ment fell to Dean Esty as our records indicated Dean Bacon was on leave. With the burden of cut regulation as- signed to the Faculty, the Dean's List first lost and then partially regained its practical significance, through the efforts of an active Student Advisory Committee on Edu- cational Policy. Between doxologies and benedictions, President Cole continually counseled the necessity of resist- ing the prospective enrollment rush of bumper babies, and in keeping with the College's intellectual tradition it was anounced that knowledge as well as nostalgia would be pursued in the new Alumni House. f"M"' ,k.,, 3 K: iifi 1. 1 'i .f ,.

Pettit, Mistress Kirby lifted her veil and spread her skirts three times this year, to MAN AND SUPERMAN, OTHELLO, and THE GOLDEN CUCKOO. College Hall not only played host to the eminent Messrs. Robb, Arons, and Cole, in connection with problems in American Studies, but it was the scene of several student plays, including the annual drama of freshman fraternity appointments. Offer- ing a mundane contrast to the fine series of art exhibits held within her galleries, Mead welcomed the annual Career Conference which again injected a note of practical reality into the College's incubator atmosphere. Though changing leadership as expected, the ACAA initiated an unforeseen purge of illegal drivers, while the HMC cautiously resisted all temptation to take more lib- erties with "Sweet Little Friday Night." Despite the quiet roars of SPHINX and the gentlemanly efforts of Student Council, the dearth of purple beanies was rivalled only by the scarcity of neckties in Valentine Hall, which, incidentally, continued to serve a fare. The results of the tiff among the LJAC, SPHINX, Student Council, and the Lord Jeff Bookstore were somewhat obscure, the only certainty being that Council came into possession of S400 and a sizeable task. In a less complicated but more dramatic turn of events, Phi Betta Kappa officially denounced social fraternities. Soon after the honorary society's March election, however, the burning issue was quelled, much to everyone's com- plete indifference. Taking time out from its selection of new members, the Rotherwas Society succeeded in presenting a speaker or two, while LJAC, Chi Psi, and Amherst College lecturers provided eager student minds with frequent intellectual stimulation. In addition to his Rotherwas responsibilities, Professor Earl Latham accepted the post of general counsel 'for the new legal society founded and named in honor 10 of the famous beard-pulling Amherst graduate, Harlan Fiske Stone, Coon, Ball, W. R. C. and T. F. T. by their dili- gence and covert editorializing, kept the STUDENT high in popularity on the campus, second only to Smith '58 in total sales. Blotters ran a close third. To an unprecedented extent the "Letters to the Editor" column became a public forum in which all facets of Amherst life from campus canines to the illegal rushing pamphlet were heartily de- bated. The CA again convened weekly, the DQ and the Zumbyes blended, and SCARAB tapped, admitting a worthy few to its esoteric midst. Williams Weekend and the Queen's Gambit ostensibly set the social pace, but fraternity gatherings and pig parties stole the show. An occasional Friday night turned out to be iust that, and the increased number of bonfire-rallies re- flected anything but a growing school spirit. That the spirit of generosity, however, was not completely drowned in extra halfs was demonstrated by Amherst's fine charitable re- action to Vic's fifteen-dollar loss. Midweek daters shifted from Rahar's to The Hatfield Club to the Williams House to the "pit", finally finding one place that was not closed. Jefferson 8-8211 became increasingly popular as more and more undergraduates sought a wife, but the Phootrace continued to commence under the Smith College gates amidst kilted colines. A catastrophic blow was dealt to between-class socializers as two prominent campus figures, Kay and Gracie, transferred to more mature climes, leaving Walker Hall looking more drab than usual. The campus community mourned the death of gentle- manly scholars, and listened with respect as President Cole brought to light their accomplishments at Amherst and their innumerable contributions as Amherst citizens. Robert Frost continued to effervesce youthfulness, and his sincere interest in life convinced even the most dubious that spring had come, and that summer would follow. ,., ,- 2 Liv I W KK' K X Nr V L ' L - 415 'A L' W 1 f K Wil,- Q ' 4, , L A 1, K ..

But more subtlely, yet more significantly, Amherst, succumbing to its perennial fate, lost a personality, from the spirited riots of its freshman year to its professional "senior show", the class of 1955 contributed to the College a real collective personality, positive in its presence and mourned in its departure. Yes, this was the year 1954-55 at Amherst. The future usefulness of the outlook on life with which it left us would always depend upon the individual. But now each of us is separated from that embryonic undergraduate existence, whether for a few months or for longer. Nevertheless, we are held fast in the knowledge that, however hard we may try, we and it can never be completely divorced. Something of it remains with us, and us with it. So let us reminisce, forgetting the premium we learned to place on newness, on nonchalance, on indifference, and remembering with fondness, perhaps even a touch of nostalgia, times that have passed. Now, unhindered, we can sit back and hum an old tune. H. Irving Grousbeck Robert R. Strand . X, , , , . sl L- Q, des i, wp: ,. -5- ta: TYTQQ 8N"'MQ-. WF M... r n V s Q01 K1 1 , .-.

Friends of Amherst: This volume of history-for the OLIO is an historical work-seeks to recapture by words and pic- tures the substance and the flavor of a year of undergraduate life at Amherst. Turning its pages one might not guess the long hours spent by the students in classroom, library or laboratory, nor the expendi- ture of midnight electricity before hour tests and examinations, nor yet the quantity and quality of work invested in papers, reports, and honors theses. But the other phases and facets of activity at the college are well and sometimes vividly represented, and they are a significant and memorable part of -the whole-the four years that transform a subtreshman into an Amherst alumnus.

Social House Management Committee The House Management Commit- tee, Amherst's form of interfraternity government, continued this year as a competent, regulative organization. Led by Undergraduate Chairman Dick Davis, and composed of representa- tives, both graduate and undergradu- ate, from each of the thirteen fraterni- ties and the Jeff Club, the HMC found itself continually busy with the many and varied problems of fraternity life. The major part of the year was spent dealing with the existing rushing system. An amendment was adopted which, it is hoped, will ease the over- the-quota situation. Working on a committee basis, the HMC exhibited the skill and efficiency expected of a judicial body in handling the problems and intricacies of college life. Seated: Mayer, Moses, Davis, Ferre, McFarlane. Standing: Nickerson, Clark, Fulton, Earle, Hall, Schwemm, Pruyne Fraternity Business Management The Fraternity Business Manage- ment, instituted after World War ll as a stabilizing force in the fraternity social field, has expanded greatly since that time. It has taken under its methodical wing such concerns as a reduction of individual house expenses, a sifting of proposed social purchases and, in the past year, the auditing of the fraternity balance sheets. The evolution of the organization continues still, as Manager Arthur Davenport, working with Graduate Chairman George Yarrell, Jr. and Undergraduate Co-chairmen John Lewis and Robert Kisiel, is contemplat- ing another change: the placement of fraternity dues on the college term bill. Like all proposed measures, this one must be passed by the entire FBM, which is composed of one graduate member and one undergraduate mem- ber of each fraternity.

TV Alpha Delta Phi Our noble and gentlemanly little society reassembled in the fall, directing its attention to the aspirations of improve- ment and refinement. President Seasholes put a deft hand to the mechanics and a high mind to the heart of the organiza- tion, while the assistance given by the other officers-and Bevo, the house Fourman-was instrumental in the successful solution of vital matters. Brother Duffy captained the football team through a fine season, and Brother Rogers led the soccer team in sporadic victories. Athletic fame was further appropriated to ourselves when intramural football competition resulted in victory for the Phi and submission of the Williams champs, also Alpha Delts, in the traditional Shaving Bowl contest. Within the house, literary productions were reiuvenated. Each sophomore and senior contributed one instructive or imaginative work at some time during the year, which program was bolstered by the visits of Robert Frost and President Cole. Two weeks before Christmas vacation, Brother Baskin was elected president in time to supervise the successful Orphan Party, an Alpha Delt tradition. Soon after vacation, Brother Coon retired as Chairman of the STUDENT and it was agreed that he had carried out his duties admirably. The February and April house dances were the two memorable social events following the trying exam period, mid-year break and successful rushing season.

' A happy and successful year was terminated at Com- mencement, and all the seniors graduated. 63 'Af Guida- Beta Theta Pi For 70 years Betas have been coming back to school each fall, and again this year tradition's powerful medicine won out over summer's infectious desires Kceteris paribusl. Like a group of "tired but happy" bounding brontosauri, the brothers, rallying around the cry of "Stella," began the new semester. Early gridiron gladiators, such as All- West Boltwood Avenue selection Vic "McCluglane," as usual, preceded the "dryer" set by several weeks. House improvements topped the boundless ambition list, and "Heart made of Stone" Carstensen, under Caesar's watch- ful eye, saw that eager pledges carried out other people's ideas. Football weekends put meaning in the word "social" with the Williams Weekend finale iust the peachy keenest of all. Sunday afternoon groups in the "ville" added a glow all their own, Chic, haec, hocl. The intramural season reached a dizzy climax with the purchase of the "Paul Hommeyer" Trophy to be awarded to the "Little Three" Beta House that can assemble a touch football team. Examinations came at last, but having followed the successful no-clutch policy of day-by-day studying through- out the semester, none of the brothers needed to study. Nervous, cancer wary, and penniless, many found relax- ation in a smoke of "Old Yellow Bowl." Winter's awesome blasts kept many from making the Saturday evening push to Valentine with the result that home-cooked food, "road runner" a typical favorite, became a feature and brought an unexpected visit from Duncan Hines. The winter formal was the high point of the dreary season, and "Earl's Punch" provided that extra push over the top. Spring came and with everyone confident, we made it to it, through it, and finished another year. Front row: Litchfield, Krupman, Nash, Pfaelzer, Halsted.

Chi Phi Leaving the history of Chi Phi to those who may be inter- ested enough to glean it from the Phi chapter's records, a brief review of the year's activities seems to be in order. Fall brought the usual array of paint brushes and paint- spattered activities, all the brothers making sometimes futile at- tempts to impress local coeds with the decorative splendor of their multi-colored rooms. Although many were soon lost in paths of intellectual endeavor, signs of activity could always be seen. Steve Jones brandished a steady whip and despite many shouts of "impossible" by the brothers, he was able to come up with an excellent batch of pledges. The house almost lost a sizeable bunch on a lengthy pledge trip, but a nose for direc- tion and an ample supply of anti-freeze brought them home. Parents and alumni were entertained at the Coast Guard and Williams games, with the latter weekend marked by the farewell appearance of the House's senior representatives on the football team and the introduction of a great new after- dinner speaker, Will Rogers. A highlight of a Sunday afternoon iazz concert was the introduction of the "Moriarty Stomp," a new dance craze that is destined to sweep New England College campuses. Rushing was ably handled by Fritz Ringer who agreed to abandon his bed in the chemistry lab for a few months in order to see the house once aaain. Fritz was so impressed by the annual Bowery Brawl and the college basketball team, led by Captain Jerry Benson, that he was heard to mutter, "No more science courses for me." Front row: Rogers, Barson, Reed, Dahl, Tannenbaum, Magliola, Kisiel, Moses, Paino, Howell, McCarthy, Campbell, King. Second row: Moulton, Ringer, Steeg, Poltenson, Walles, Hildreth, Fay, Damon, Maclenna, Ben- son, Ittner, Flegal, Starodoi, Wood, Anderson, Kalaushas, Long, Connors. Spring, as usual, passed by far too quickly and despite the conviction of the seniors that their class would be sorely missed, an able new delegation assured the per- petuation of Chi Phi's record of scholastic and extra-cur- ricular activity achievements.

Battling the inexorable weight of forty tons of shingles-which were slowly driving the rambling old-English structure deeper into the lot at T9 Northampton Road and bending the two wings from the main building like those of some gigantic bird in flight-house manager Bob Herd gained a little on the inevitable catastrophe. Among the results were fuller use of the new social room and bar-where Ted Harris gave full play to his talents as social chairman- and a series of house days in which the clean-up, paint-up, fix-up spirit gave a brighter aspect to the Lodge than it had seen for years. Alpha Chi continued its policy of contributing to the intellectual life of the college as it again presented a series of Chi Psi lectures. Among the speakers heard during the year were Professor Earl Latham who spoke on the topic, "What's the Score in '54?" and Dr. Nan-hsuan M. Woo who made a commentary on the Red China-Formosa contro- versy. Presiding during the year were Dix Long and Charlie Cooper successively, whose efforts were turned primarily towards putting the financial aspects of Alpha affairs in order. With the notable assistance of Treasurer Symmes and assistant Tyler, an economy drive proved rewarding. In addition, an eye was turned to the future, and plans for improved study and living conditions were passed on to the younger generation.

First, we live in a large and comfortable brick house with a big lawn and a long hedge. Second, he would see that the Dekes seem to enioy life more than other people do, and third, he would see that we are very proud of being brothers in Delta Kappa Epsilon. The house on the hill is the home of a tradition that reaches back to 1846, when our chapter was founded on the Amherst campus. The brothers are often conscious of the tradition of our fraternity, we felt this tradition again on Williams Weekend when the alumni came back to visit Sigma. It is very true that we enjoy life. Our house parties are well- planned and well-attended, so well-attended, in fact, that we have found it necessary on occasion to post a policeman to turn away those who do not belong to the Amherst community or to other chapters. We have a big television set, innumerable packs of cards, and a nice bar. Some of the finest girls in the East come to Deke, not only from Smith and Mt. Holyoke, but also from Vassar, Bennet, the University of Akron, Pine Manor, Wellesley, Marymount, and so on. But this is only part of our life at the house.

The Deke house, with its tradition, friendship, and pride, has given the concept of brotherhood real meaning to us. 3 3 NZM! -' mf 4 ' "' 3 it Delta Upsllon The past year was far from uneventful for the Amherst D.U.'s as the circus atmosphere of last spring's house party extended right into senior goat. During the fall we carried on in the true D.U. social tradition with the after-game cocktail parties and Saturday night bar groups in full action. Williams weekend was as colorful as ever, while Santa put the boys in iolly spirits at the annual Christmas party. Life was not all liquid, however, as the house average continued its amazing two-year ascent, and strong intra- mural teams competed in all areas. The library became a focal point on fight nights as we were presented with a new T.V. set, but it was soon apparent that even Liberace could not replace the helping hand of house protector Bill Casey. The second semester started auspiciously as we played host to a number of college dignitaries at a reception for brother Walter S. Orr, 'l2. The new college hockey rink was named for brother Orr and we all enjoyed ourselves and were honored by his presence. It is beginning to look as if Goose is here to stay, as he became the first D.U. in history to attend chapel four times a week and was a topic of conservation for the Deans as well as the STUDENT. Another spring came and we all enjoyed many days reclining with a keg on our fair sun porch. lg T E535 .. -t Front row: Roblin, Clemence, Kessler, Qstandingl, Davis, Tallman, Howard, Olson, Street, Furbish, Leonard, Huggins.

Kappa Theta The high points and the low points of the past year, the mundane and the miraculous, can all be viewed with the infallible wisdom of hindsight, some may be laughed at, others regretted, but all, nonetheless, will be remembered. During the fall, the house turned out en masse to roar for the purple and the white, and then retired to the rooms to call out for Black Label. Saturday night beer flowed with the inimitable rapidity of Saturday night beer. On Williams Weekend, two sophomores came back from their pledge hikes just in time to get initiated, while staunch alumni greeted each other with gusto, if not with complete recognition. The highlight of the winter months was the party thrown by the brethren for the underprivileged children of the Connecticut Valley. Of all parties in the course of the year, perhaps this one was most enioyed. As January melted into February, we counted the noses last seen at the grindstone, found our numbers un- diminished, and sallied forth into the new semester. We started out with the "Brigadoon Brawl," highlighted by nine intrepid inebriates performing "Amherstadoon," a vaguely recognizable spoof of The Fairest College. Before we knew it, it was April and another house party was upon us. Freshmen were discovering the bars in the fourteen different houses on campus, and using each accordingly. For Prom weekend, everyone had his own individual queen up, and the brothers got together for the final "big" weekend before graduation. These, then, were the highlights of the 1954-55 Amherst Kneeling: Jacobson, Friedrich, Black, Ralf, Epstein, Sussman, Baum, Knight, Ware, Tapley, Goldman, Weissman.

Led through the maiority of the year by President Jack Tapley, "Veeps" Don Paulson and Jim Hanks, Secretary Evan Linick, and Treasurer Bob Haller, we submit the above partial list of accomplishments to the iudgment of our peers and succes- sors. if they will have had one hundredth the pleasure and friendship that we have had, then the riches of Croesus will be, perhaps, as infinitesimal to the infinite. Phi Alpha Psi A new burst of vitality, tinged with a quaint Parisian mode, filled Phi Alpha Psi as the young house prepared for the new year with a rebirth in' atmosphere and appear- ance. In an enthusiastic burst of energy, the fall semester began with a renovation of the House Bar and Le' Bistro. The talented hands of Peter Marks creating Parisian scenes led to further attempts by the brothers in modern interior, multi-colored room decor. The tone of the whole semester followed this with somewhat superficial attempts at outside painting, roofing, and holding the plaster in place on the second floor. Amherst College in general and Phi Psi in particular enjoyed some fabulous fall festivities during the Second Annual Parents' Weekend and Williams Weekend. How- ever, almost every Saturday night, Le' Bistro was the scene of traditional songfests led by Pete Schramm, his guitar, and the rest of the Queen Street Boys. intellectually it was felt that Phi Psi might be entering the Dark Ages as it slipped to fourth place, and the Tread- way Trophy seemed farther away. Yet, spirits remained high in general as liberal discussions and introspections by the brothers brought forth the fresher, more vital aspects of fraternity life. On the other side of the scoreboard, the House managed to avoid any forfeits in football, while maintaining the traditional good showing in volleyball. The second semester opened socially with the Formal Dance, which proved to be a high success. In addition to the brothers and their dates, and ivy League visitors, several members of the faculty joined in the festivities. It seemed a long way to the next House dance, but high Parisian gaiety culminated in the Spring Prom parties. With the House gathering energy for the Spring Exodus to Paschendale, and the brothers effecting further House improvements, the year ended as one of the most success- ful in Phi Alpha Psi's young history.

Thus equipped, the brothers were prepared for a season of gracious living. One of our more constructive pledge periods culminated in an informal Sunday morning church meeting in the Smith quad, the high point of which occurred when eighteen eager pledges took oft in hot pursuit of a Crisco-coated piglet. The neophytes concluded their season with a padlock-chain-gang pledge hike and a strenuous Williams Weekend initiation. Did they serve martinis in the Second Ming Dynasty? Who cares! With Chinese lanterns, fluttering fans, Buddha, two small friendly dragons and one and one half tons of mandarin-colored crepe paper, 32 Northampton Road just dripped with oriental splendor for the Winter Formal. Intramural activities looked up: the football team scored. The victorious spirit was carried into the volleyball season, where the surprisingly strong "Phi" team dominated the league. Notable victories were scored in debating, ping pong, basketball, and swimming. This triumphal trend culminated in the chess tourna- ment. In this field, as elsewhere, opposition was checkmated. Distinctive in the season were the Orphans' Christmas Party, featuring a Santa Claus with a Shakespearean drawl, the Faculty Tea, and the notably unsuccessful efforts in the toilet training of Peter, the beagle.

Unheralded there had appeared at Phi Gam a genuine spirit of brotherhood. Some called it house "tone" or "spirit." Others were content to refresh the meaning of the word "fraternity." Maybe it all started with pledge training last fall. Dick Flynn's program was rigorous and impressive, but the pledges showed the brothers the way in spirit and initiative. Real pride and a strong feeling of welcome keynoted Initiation ancl the Norris Pig Dinner on Williams Weekend. "The Trend" showed up in many smaller ways: Pajama Girls as well as the traditional sarong-clad con- nibal queens, a spider monkey and a 1919 fire engine, books in Nightmare Alley, a new parking lot, much steam in intramurals, high level service on WAMF, STUDENT, CA, Council, and Rotherwas, combined with high aca- demic standing nationally and on campus.

"Q BELGKRQI QR55:-,xxNN Psi Upsilon From the quilt of activity which enmeshed Psi Upsilon during the past year can be drawn two distinct threads-common effort and individual achievement. The house saw the first maior rehabilitation program in its history, insuring it, we hope, of as many again successful years on its present foundation. With the cooperation of all the brothers, a planned-studies program resulted in a general rise of the house's scholastic average. A distinctive pledge program, intended to inculcate the sophomores with the true spirit of brotherhood, culminated in a successful pledge banquet and a record-alumni-attended initia- tion. But perhaps common effort was most apparent in the well- rounded social program with its highlights: the Gammie Prom, the Roman Holiday, and the Christmas Party, not to mention the congenial groups congregating at the house each weekend. Individual achievement also was strikingly apparent in T954-55. Athletics once again were an important part of the campus participation of the Gamma as two captains-elect, Harry Steuber and Barry Brown, lent successful support to the football and cross-country teams respectively, while a number of others participated in a variety of varsity and intramural sports. Outside of the sports world, Mark Ball was elected Chair- man of the Editorial Board of the STUDENT, and Avy Gross and Bob Walton won the Debate Cup. In recognition of all-around scholastic and extra-curricular leadership, Mark Ball, Crayton Bedford, Peter Weiller, and Harry Steuber were elected to SPHINX.

Theta Delta Chi September arrived with its usual regularity and its last week once again found the brothers gathering together from their respective corners of the earth in order to pursue the primary task of scholarship. Football weekends, with whiskey sours mixed in ten-gallon milk cans, and pledges raking the infinite quantities of leaves ran close seconds to academic endeavors. A maior internal project was finally completed with the redecoration and refurnishing of the living room, this came just in time for the influx of parents and alumni over Williams Weekend. The house was the scene of two parties between Thanksgiving and Christmas. The Paiama Game was featured on the first weekend and on the following Sunday the faculty were welcomed at the Annual Egg-nog Party which has become a most enioyable tradition. Follow- ing Christmas vacation, the brothers forsook the organized social aspect of fraternity life to prepare for mid-year examinations, though often cars, topped with skiis and bound for the North, were seen sneaking inauspiciously out of the parking lot. Rushing came and went with the usual organized chaos that is characteristic of February and March. And then came spring, that lotus-like period of house dances and proms, of lawn parties and beer, of gay times with the girls from Smith and Holyoke. Yet somehow, in spite of the wonderful spring smells and warm May sunshine, books were read and tests were passed. And finally, quite suddenly, the college experience was terminated except for graduation. The seniors be- came acutely aware that the period of living as a common group was almost over, and they were leaving a house which had provided a background of consistent and happy friendships. Yet, they knew that in future visits, its rooms, creaks, and bar would be reminders of many unforgettable college experiences.

The upshot was a lengthy booklet of evaluations and recommendations which was printed by the faculty and the administration. During Williams Weekend, Theta Xi performed another dis- tinctive campus service when a fine painting, formerly a treasured possession of Gil Wanger, was presented to grateful Mead Art Gallery officials. Many basic and costly improvements were made under the direction of Bill Frymoyer, who served as de facto House Man- ager for the second straight year. A new parking area was added, the walls shored up, the bathrooms and common rooms repainted, the budget gleefully exceeded, all despite Treasurer "J. Snard" Roda's brave but vain protest, "But we gotta have a 517000 surplus!" Several seniors were pinned, unpinned, and both during the year. Ace Ryder and Sue Goff were married, but most of us avoided complications. Rob Sowersby gave up washing his car every day and took to yelling, "One for bridge!" at frequent intervals. Marty Field provided a variation with his cry of "Three for bridge!" Jim Stone presided over innumerable cocktail parties in the Wein- man-Young and Mayer-Metcalf-Frymoyer rooms. When Randy Walker began teaching Paul Penfield how to play the guitar, an Anti-Noise Committee was quickly organized.

The yearly cycle of fall line-ups, which Bernie, our French student, thought thoroughly illogical, and winter rushing was weathered, but not without appropriate frenzy. Spring brought a gentler season of parties and the Prom. With the arrival of June, another fine group of Theta Xi seniors went forth from Amherst to swell the ranks of the unemployed. fx A 51 """-mf., Vkb. . . Lord Jeffrey Amherst Club The Jeff Club is a group of guys who acknowledge practically nobody as their master, save the Chapel Dean. This acknowledgement of nobody is a condition which infected the lives of Jeff Club members continuously over the course of the past year. "Nobody has to clean the bar at the JeFf Club," they aphorized, "but, somehow, the leaves get raked." This individual responsibility was put to the severest tests when members discovered the threat of total blackout in the bathroom, the condition of the library, and the impending deficit after the Beaux Arts ball and Alumni Weekend. Nevertheless, with almost miracu- lous ease, the library was refurbished, the budget re- mained in remarkable health, and beer continued to be consumed in ever increasing quantities despite the parsi- monious blandishments of the social chairman. Life at the Jeff Club went on most significantly from the hallowed hours of 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Various members could be seen emerging from their academic burrows at this time to participate in one of the most educational parts of their college careers-a weighty symposium on the overall importance of something or other. Whenever this sort of intellectual holocaust reached its zenith, it was usually interrupted by that traditional and best-loved of anti-climaxes, the sandwichman. . ,rr ..

Student Council The 1954-1955 Student Council continued more actively than ever to maintain its function of discerning and repre- senting undergraduate interest, administering the Student Tax funds, and promoting a healthy and beneficial relationship between the students and the faculty. The Council took a strong position concerning the new cut system announced by the faculty just before the close of the last school year. The Student Council Advisory Committee to the Faculty Committee on Educational Policy, under the chairmanship of Ralph Allen, presented the students' case and succeeded in having the rules revised sufficiently so that Dean's List students could resume their previous privileges. This com- mittee, which reflects student opinion on any matter pertain- ing to the curriculum, also studied the costs of books and the scheduling of courses. A permanent Athletic Committee was established and, working in coniunction with members of the Department of Athletics, a new set of training rules were drawn up which gave individual coaches the right to initiate the rules they felt were necessary for their sports. A Little Three Student Council meeting was held here last fall. Suggested by the Amherst Council as an oppor- tunity to discuss mutual student affairs, the meeting proved very successful and the representatives of the three schools will gather again soon. Under Council investigation, SABRINA and CONTEXT were dissolved. Elements of the boards from each magazine then united and organized a new campus literary magazine, to appear three times yearly and to be financed by student funds. As a result of discontent among freshmen concerning the arbitrary manner in which rooms. have been assigned in the past, a new draw system was established and put into opera- tion this spring by Mr. Johnson's office. Council also proposed that a rushing booklet be pub- lished and distributed to freshmen. A committee consisting of Jerry Conover from Council, Luis Ferre from H.M.C. and John Lewis, representing the freshmen dorm procters, prepared the booklet which was published in time for rushing this year. ln response to complaints concerning the high prices of used and second-hand books, Council initiated a coordinating system to bring the buyer and seller together. This plan proved successful and SPHINX was delegated the responsibility of running the exchange in the future. This year's Council was an active and interested one. The legislation it passed is indicative of expanding student interest. Officers were: George Bobrinskoy, president, Gordon Forbes, vice-president: William Salot, treasurer, and Matthew Budd, secretary. Bobrinskoy and Council discuss the plight of the Amherst dog. Seated: Fagles, Florance, Robbins. Standing: Wyn, Lemal. Absent: Allen, Hanschka, Mayer.

Phi Beta Kappa America's oldest Greek letter socie- ty, Phi Beta Kappa, was founded in the year T776 at the College of William and Mary in Virginia. The Amherst Chapter, the Massachusetts Beta Chapter, was the thirteenth H8531 of the one hundred and fifty chapters in existence today. The purpose of the society is to recognize and to encourage intellectual achievement. ln order to be admitted to Phi Beta Kappa, a iunior must have an overall college average of ninety, and a senior must have an average of eighty- six and must be a candidate for a degree with honors. Besides its purely honorary function, Phi Beta Kappa recognizes scholastic abil- ity and achievement by granting several scholarships. Moreover, the society offers valuable placement aid for high-ranking students after graduation. The graduate officers of the Massa- chusetts Beta Chapter are: Newton F. McKeon, Jr., '26, president: Paul D. Bart- lett, '28, vice-president: and Bruce B. Benson, '43, secretary-treasurer. The un- dergraduate officers this year were Ralph G. Allen, president, and David M. Lemal, secretary. Delta Sigma Rho The Amherst chapter of Delta Sigma Rho, the national honorary forensic so- ciety, was founded in 1913. Each semes- ter those students who have demon- strated superior ability in the College's program of intercollegiate debate and speech competitions are elected to its membership. Headed by Eugene G. Wanger during the past year, the society continued to steadfastly uphold its high standards of oratory and sought to in- still such in the "hoaxers" of the Amherst scene. Rotherwas Society The Rotherwas Society, whose avowed purpose is the promotion of public discussion on the Amherst Campus, began its year by extending its horizons as far as Mount Holyoke with a debate on the Massachusetts senatorial race. Then, in December, Rotherwas and the Debate Council brought four experts to- gether over the issue of Red China. By the middle of February, however, the unanswered questions about rushing at Amherst brought the Society's focus closer to home as it held its annual dorm discussion groups.

SPHINX is devoted to the perpetuation of college and community tradition and service to the college community. Freshman orientation was the first job under- taken by SPHINX. The Freshman-Sophomore rivalry was replaced by a spirited interdorm bonfire competition from which Morrow emerged the winner. Prospective Amherst men got a better look at the college with the expanded SPHINX guide service, operating in conjunction with the Dean's ottice. Other areas of SPHINX participation were the President's Tea, Smith and Mount Holyoke acquaintance dances, and the Williams Weekend effigy contest in which Kappa Theta took the laurels. The spring All-Sports Banquet, honoring all varsity lettermen, rounded out the year's activi- ties. The guest speaker was Clarence "Pop" Hus- ton of Tufts College, the President of the NCAA. The leadership for SPHINX was provided by Van Doorn Ooms, president, R. Markham Ball, secretary, and William Salot, Treasurer.

Since its inception in 1868, the STUDENT has During the past year, training rules, Over which PQMHED57. 47'lnmN 2 o 3 :nntp 4 vt H3330 sl 5220 X1 Q , ESTABLISHED IN 1868 changed remarkably from the original bi-weekly publication. During its first few decades the news- paper was the media for the circulation of essays, poems, announcements and personal notices. Now published semi-weekly on Mondays and Thursdays, the STUDENT operates on the principle that its read- ers want the news, and the facts behind the news, concerning campus activities and events. On this basis, the STUDENT emphasizes care- fully planned news and sports pages. Headlines and layout are geared so that the reader can most easily scan the total news, take in the general scene, and find the items which most interest him. The editorial commentary is designed to either integrate closely with current happenings or take up broader topics of relevance to the campus. Feature articles dealing with local topics are presented with regard to the interest they will receive. The STUDENT is ever aware of its function as a college newspaper and endeavors to make local coverage as inclusive and comprehensive as possible. In line with its position as a newspaper, the STUDENT has served, for the better part of a century, as the most complete chronicle of Amherst College history, and at least on the undergraduate side of this history, the STUDENT, primarily by its publicity function and also by editorial policy, has taken a large part in moulding general Amherst opinion. there was considerable controversy last spring, were put on a new STUDENT-supported basis according to which each sport has its own regulations. The new cut system was modified through STUDENT action to give special consideration to Dean's List students. Early in the fall, the STUDENT suggested a merger of SABRINA and CONTEXT, the two undergraduate magazines which had undergone much attack. Just after Christmas vacation a new literary magazine was established by Student Council from a combina- tion of existing talent. The STUDENT is composed of editorial, sports and business departments. During the past year it has maintained a staff of about sixty members, about forty on the writing end and twenty connected with business matters. For the fall semester Henry Coon acted as chairman with Gerald Plotkin as managing editor and Carl Stearn as sports editor. Jack Hag- strom was business manager while Joel Minster handled the books as treasurer. William Cole and Thomas Metcalf were vice-chairman and news editor respectively. Mid-year election ushered in Markham Ball as chairman, Steven Davis as managing editor and Richard Volpert as sports editor. Bruce Johnson be- came business manager and Alfred Frank treasurer, while Thurston Teele and Edward Dibble took over the duties of vice-chairman and news editor.

This is quite interesting, since one old sage has estimated the date of the first Amherst College yearbook as May 1855. The present "brochure" submits no claim to fame, however, and is happy to go down in history as the 101st edition of the OLIO. Through its long life as a campus tradition, Amherst's book of the year has constantly had to admit that change gives some sem- blance of progress. To the "new" of 1954 thus must be added the "new" of 1955: for example, three-color dividers depicting the "fairest" of The Fairest College, and original line sketches fdone ably by Charlie Rogersj depicting the humorous side of The Happy Valley. The literary and photographic coverage of the book is complete and is presented effectively with an emphasis on quality in layout as well as in material. The year's highlights are summar- ized in an early section of the book-these pages attempting to avoid the perils of editorializing and campus life montages. With student opinion divided on the question of a spring supplement, the problem Cof what to doj was ingeniously solved by publishing under a separate cover "a few pages about spring." Such is not a spring supplement-Jit iust looks like one. It can not be inserted in the book-it has no "stickum." This, then, has been an article for the 1955 OLIO about the 1955 OLIO.

Amherst Literary Magazine Seated: Long, Frymoyer, Wyn. Standing: Leff, Velton, Eisold. The Amherst LITERARY MAGAZINE rose this year, like a Phoe- nix, out of the mixed ashes of SABRINA and CONTEXT. As these two gave up the ghost the entire campus ran for cover, awaiting the first shots in the battle of the literary giants. Not a volley was sounded. The eagerly anticipated battle gave way to compromise and the birth of a new magazine, sired by a six-man editorial board of old and new guard mixed, was heralded. With the new blood running through its veins, the MAGAZINE looked to the future, hoping none would be spilled. Weapons were checked at the door, and the board met in Pratt basement amidst the bones of its predecessors. Ronald Wyn, chewing a large cigar, refereed while Bill Velton and Ken Eisold threw difficult rhymes at each other. T. D. Long contemplated endlessly, unable to remember what T. D. connoted. Fred Hertz sulkecl in a corner, confusing Art and Leff. Thus, with this all-star cast, and the apparent backing of the literary and artistic minds of Amherst, the Literary Magazine hopes it has taken root here in Happy Valley, and will outlive and outdo all its ancestors.

Station manager Morgan presents to a pretty young thing as PBS expands. WAMF MORE women, paint, "Orgies," and election results were the highlights of the year 1954-55 at radio station WAMF. The women were Mount Holyoke girls as, on February 1, 1955, WMHC ioined WAMF and WCSR CSmith College, in the Pioneer Broadcasting System. WAMF is now the central station in the na- tion's largest live collegiate network. The paint was involved in a vast renovating iob done in the studios in the basement of Waler Hall. It was just one more step in the process which has, over the years, converted a dingy base- ment into a radio station of professional standards. "The Orgie," as it was affectionately known to station mem- bers, was WAMF's most popular program venture. Under the direc- tion of Bob Eisenthal, '56, about a dozen men broadcast uninter- rupted music twenty-four hours a day during the two examination periods. Paralleling "the Orgie" in popularity was WAMF's election night coverage. In addition to results from Western Massachusetts and the rest of the country, the show included analyses by students and faculty members and tape-recorded interviews collected during the fall campaign. Among the more popular of the regularly scheduled programs was "Night Owl," a two and one half hour disc iockey show pre- sented every evening at 10:30. The year saw the death of "Sunday Edition," a review of the week's news, and "Amherst on the Air," a program which had challenged the STUDENT as Amherst's favorite scandal sheet. On the other hand, the year saw the rebirth of Hiram Tuttle, Amherst's favorite radio character, on a more active "Spotlight" program presenting radio dramas every Sunday night under the direction of Norman Amaker '56 and Gary Kirshbaum '57. Mention must be made of the men who guided the station throughout the year. During the first semester they were: Art Rosen- berg, '55, station manager, Jay Jacobson, '56, program director, Leigh Miller, '55, personnel director, Bob Henderson, '55, technical director, and Herbert Tulchin, '55, business manager. Special men- tion should be made of Paul Penfield, '55, who during his four years at Amherst devoted his time selt1essly to the engineering department. The second semester Senior Board consisted of Charles Morgan, '56, station manager, Al Damon, '56, program director, C.

Headed by Austin Frum and Vic Soltz during the first semester and by Ky Sylvester during the second semester, the News Bureau continued to serve eastern papers as well as major wire services by supplying highlights from the Amherst sports scene. Covering every home contest, the News Bureau staff sent our prelims on varsity and freshman events, home town releases on individual athletes, and other feature articles for publication. The installation of a direct teletype line to the Western Union office in Northampton did much to improve the speed and efficiency of the Bureau. The fact that twelve undergraduates entered competition for positions on the staff reflected the increasing interest which this aspect of Public Rela- tions commanded. The Chest Drive this year, headed by Chairman-Treasurer Van Ooms, had as its goal the ambitious figure of 56,500.00. The individual donations campaign, stimulated by several excellent Chapel talks, got the Drive off to a great start, and with the aid of the Mardi Gras and the Glee Club Concert, returns were easily pushed near the top. The Chest Drive Show, "Soldier of the King," given in March, concluded a very excellent year for the Chest Drive.

This production, marked two "firsts" for Kirby: it was the first Masquers presentation under the direction of Professor Edwin B. Pettet, and it was the first work of Shaw's to be seen on the Kirby stage in several seasons. Both "firsts" met with great success. ln "Man and Superman," the plot action con- cerns "girl chases boy," and it is used by Shaw as the comedy background for a conflict of philoso- phies and forces. George Morgan, handicapped by a broken ankle, played the lead role of John Tanner very convincingly. Burk Runser, Fred Levy, Pat Mc- Donald, and an excellent supporting cast helped to create a fine theatrical experience for Amherst play- goers. E , As usual, the inestimable technical contribution of Professors Ralph McGoun and Charles Rogers, and the efforts of the Kirby costume ladies must be praised. The results of their labors added greatly to the overall effect of the production. ln December Kirby Theatre was the scene of Amherst's revival of the Nativity scenes from the 'E Seated: Ritter, Runser, Francisco, Lehrman, Hertz.

Mr. Nikos Psacharopoulos coached the readers, while Professors Rogers and Henry G. Mishkin directed the tableaux and choir respectively. As in the past, capacity audiences at- tended the three performances. In February, for the sixth consecutive year, the Masquers turned to Shakespeare and presented the bard's well known tragedy, "Othello." Again, "firsts" were involved, a public forum was held to discuss the production and the duties of the stage manager were greatly increased. With the production focused on the nature of the conflicts involved, Norman Amaker played the title role quite capably. Featured in the fine cast were Fred Levy and Ann Cooper. Mr. George Whitney, technical director of Kirby Theatre for the second semester, and Professor Rogers created a setting for "Othello" which allowed the greatest activity of the tragedy's struggle to be expressed. Kirby 'patrons were again well satisfied Bill Francisco," was president of the Masquers Burk Runser was vice-president, and Bob Lehrman was secretary during the past year.

The high point of the concert year was the performance of the Beethoven C Major Mass with the Smith College Glee Club and the Washington National Symphony Orchestra. This work was sung both in Washington and Northampton. The Glee Club opened its season on Alumni Weekend, singing its home concert at College Hall. This was followed in December by three Christmas f Vesper Services sung with the All-Smith Choir.

During the spring recess the Chapel Choir, a small group consisting of thirty of the Glee Club members, made a seven-day tour of the East Coast, giving concerts at Briarcliff Junior College, Hood College, Chatham, New Jersey, and the Washington National Cathedral. Hod Moses served as president of the club, and Jim Dillon handled the managerial tasks. Damn collar!! The Amherst College Band During the 1954-55 season the Amherst College Band, ten pieces larger than its predecessor, rendered its fine musical services to the college in typical Band fashion. ln addition to playing and marching at football games and pep rallies, it made several excellent concert appear- ances in the Amherst area. Credit for the successful year is due Director J. Clement Schuler, Student Director Dave Ferner, and Band President Stan Ginsberg. The concert season opened on Parents' Weekend with a Community Chest benefit concert at College Hall. During the Christmas season, the Brass Choir of the Band performed in the Christmas Vesper Services at Northamp- ton and Amherst, and played Christmas carols at Smith and Mount Holyoke colleges, and at Leeds Veterans Hos- pital. After appearing in a benefit variety show in College late in February, the Band held its yearly joint concert with the University of Massachusetts, the Amherst High School, and the Deerfield Academy bands. A pop concert Prom Weekend and a home concert late in May concluded a very impressive season. J in "YN fi The sax section.

Zumbyes With an expanded repertoire and heightened reputation, Amherst's triple quartet made the 1954-55 season one of the most successful in its six-year existence. ln addition to several local performances, the Zumbyes' singing year was high- lighted by appearances at Wellesley, Skidmore, and Bryn Mawr, and an eight-day spring vacation stand in Miami. Much of the credit for the successful season is due to Director Ron Gregson, who led the group for the third straight year, and arrangers Walt Marks and George Todd who were responsible for the increased repertoire. Among the new arrangements produced were Marks' "Long Ago and Far Away" and "The Christmas Song," and Toald's "Sweet Lorraine," "Dorn That Dream," "Ugly Child," and "How Come Ya' Do Me like Ya' Do Do Do." The last of these, a medley featuring the rasp of Steve "McGoo" McGeeney, proved to be one of the group's most popular numbers. Delicate blend and sensitive dynamics, the qualities which can make a twelve-man singing group so pleasing to listen to, were the Zumbyes' fortes. Graduation took a heavy toll of the group. Among the five seniors lost were Director Gregson, Arranger Marks, and Charlie Rogers, all baritones, bass Tony Morano, and first tenor Steve Yarnall. Double Quartet There were moments this year when members of the DQ could not tell themselves from an itinerant vaudeville team. Travelling by car and by air, these tattersalled troubadours sang for their suppers land transportationj at colleges through- out the East and alumni gatherings from Amherst to Mil- waukee. ln addition to appearances at Smith and Holyoke, the DQ made harmonious noises at such places as Wheaton, Wellesley, Bowdoin, Pembroke and Wells Colleges. They took two nights oFf to fly to New York to be well fed, and to sing for equally well fed members of the University and Union Clubs. The highlight of the year was the spring trip. Travelling with the Chapel Choir, the DQ played to packed houses from New York to Washington. The group spent the second week of vacation singing at alumni-sponsored functions through- out the Midwest and East. Milwaukee, Chicago, Cleveland, Rochester, and Syracuse were among the stops Carranged with the aid of Alumni Secretary Alfred Guestj on this air- borne excursion. Musically, this was one of the DQ's best years. Crayte Bedford fthe funny one on the rightj browbeat the group into getting things right, and contributed a couple of good arrangements in "September Song" and "Summertime," To commemorate this "good year," the DQ released a record in the spring. Here the immortal voice of senior Burke f"Summer-time"l Runser was captured for all time. His gradu- ation and that of business manager Bobby Grant created two important holes in the DQ's eight man line. Misses America-Amherst style.

The importance of the opportunity to worship together was realized by an increasing number of students who regularly attended the weekly student-led worship services in the little chapel. Complementing the worship services this year were some four for five weekly Bible study and discussion groups which met with one of the three chaplains, Thayer Greene, Phillip Zabriskie, and David King. Here again the numerous participants witnessed to a common desire to discover and define the Christian message. The cabinet chairman of foreign students was faced with the largest number of foreign students as yet to attend Amherst, and much valuable work was clone aiding and assisting them in their orientation on a new campus in a strange country. Rabbit Hollow work trip weekends, spent fixing up a New Hampshire camp for underprivileged children, were popular and profitable in the fall and spring terms. Further social work in the community of Amherst saw twenty students actively involved in visiting and helping to entertain patients at the hospital for disabled veterans in Leeds, Massachusetts. Additional activity on campus involved the annual Embassy. "Rebels and Responsible Men" was the very relevant topic of the discussions which were well attended by the student body. The monthly Clerical Club meetings on the various opportunities for Christian vocations also appealed to a larger number of students this year. Three retreat weekends, one in the fall and two in February, were other important opportunities for spiritual growth which called for considerable planning mutually between the chaplains and this year's officers: Alan McLean, president, Gordon Forbes, vice-president, Lewis Henshaw, secretary, and Bob Hailler, treasurer. 1 .

The Sailing Club had its usual busy fall schedule consisting of six varsity and two freshman regattas. The Club made a good showing in these meets, placing second in the Little Three lbeating Williamsi, second in a Quadrangular Meet at Amherst, and tying for second in the Raven Heptagonal at Coast Guard. Last spring vacation an eight-man team represented Amherst in the MacMillan Cup Races held at Annapolis in the Navy yawls. The election of officers in December brought the Club some new additions. After many years of drifting around, a headquarters was finally acquired in Pratt Dorm, helping immeasurably to centralize Club activities. The four old- style MIT dingies got their first good refurbishing since the Club purchased them. The spring season, with several home regattas, was especially busy, and because of a new plan to have elimination series in order to' determine the better skippers in the Club, the opportunities to place well in the spring races were greatly increased. Because of the greater amount of racing practice, a successful spring season wound up a good year for the Sailing Club. This year the Amherst frosh missed his initial opportunity to become acquainted with the activities of the Outing Club as rain forced cancellation of the annual Freshman-Faculty Day Barbecue. Elarly in the fall, however, the Club moved into high gear, and after Club-sponsored acquaintance dances and cabin parties, interest and membership increased rapidly. The winter program of the Outing Club put the emphasis on ski trips to Stowe and Bromley, square dances, skating parties, and outdoor-adventure films and lectures. The purchase of a new canoe for use on spring excursions gave great impetus to the Outing Club's schedule of hikes and fishing trips.

College Hall Committee With the aid of Faculty Advisor Walker Gibson, the College Hall Committee again supervised the host of activities carried on in the Hall by the various school organizations. The year's schedule of events included the annual Alumni Weekend Glee Club concert, the Freshman Show, the highly successful Chest Drive Show, the Senior Class production ot "It's Greek to Me," and the "Review in the Round," sponsored by the Music Department. The proceeds from this latter presentation went toward much-needed improvements in the physical plant of the Hall. "l. W." discusses College Hall renovations with committee.

Prom Committee The 1955 Prom Committee, again under the leader- ship ot Chairman John J. Shillinton, Jr., strove to make the Spring Prom a full weekend event by encouraging and organizing a wide variety of activities over the three-day period. Once again the band was chosen on a "danceabIe music" basis, rather than on a strictly "big name" basis, and the prom remained the highlight of the weekend's proceedings. "The Queen's Gambit" being the general theme, the gymnasium was tempo- rarily transformed into a chessman's paradise which provided an enjoyable as well as academic atmosphere. Charles Klem acted as treasurer, and last year's co- chairman, T. Dixon Long, acted in a general advisory capacity. Harlan Fiske Stone Law Society The Harlan Fiske Stone Law Society was established in September 1954 as a successor to the defunct Pre-Law Club. Officers elected at the first meeting were: Andre Pierre, president, Charles Kopp, vice-president, William Falsgraf, secretary, and Edward Hall, treasurer. Professor Earl Latham was chosen faculty advisor. The purpose of the 'society is to provide a means of discussion and instruction in the field of law and to act as an aid in the choice of a graduate school of law. Guest speakers meeting with the Society included a Judge of the Circuit Court of Appeals, a New York State Supreme Court Justice, and a U. S. District Attorney as well as rep- resentatives from the nation's leading law schools. KDPP, Pierre, Professor Latham, Hall Moses contemplates the world situation. Debate Council The Debate Council, due to ever-growing interest among undergraduates, became more active this year than ever before. The Third Annual Intercollegiate Tournament was held with many colleges participating. In addition to this, individual debates were held with the University of Vermont, Tufts, and NYU, from whom Amherst won well over half the contests. At these events the national topic, the recognition of Communist China, was debated. When West Point banned discussion of this topic, the Council took a stand for free discussion. The intramural topic this year, the question of a co- operative bookstore in Amherst, led to Student Council action. This indicates the increasing importance of the Debate Council on the Amherst campus. Seated: Mizoguchi, Dibble, Wanger, Baum, Hollins- head. Standing: Chazin, Ooms, Koski, Johnson.

Acting on the principle that student ownership and use of cars is not a right but a privilege, the ACAA was aided and abetted by the conscientious ettorts of Mac, the cop. During the past year J. Robert Herd served as president of the Association, William Cobou tultilling the duties of secretary. officer . Decency League Under the sagacious leadership of Grand Lama A. Sabu Burns, the Amherst College Decency league worked diligently towards its perennial goal of mak- ing Amherst a decent, self-respecting, up-right insti- tution. To realize this aim, the League sponsored such morally inspiring activities as the Phinian Pho- lansbee Phootrace. Doctor Gerald Benson and other members of the inner circle spent two rewarding months conduct- ing important research on the chastity of the African Rhesus. Other members made leisurely observations of the prevailing bar activity, which became the most rewarding part of the whole program. Grand Lama Burns accompanies Atkinson and a "pink whale" in one verse of . . . The Amherst A. F. R. O.T. C. With the beginning of the military conflict in Korea, the need for trained college men who might later become officers in the armed forces became pressing. The Amherst unit of the Air Force ROTC, set up in answer to this need, has been in existence since the fall of 1951. This year's seniors constitute the second class to receive their com- missions, and the first to have elected ROTC in their freshman year. Assigned to the task of preparing Amherst under- graduates to assume their varied post-graduate duties is the detachment cadre of five officers and four enlisted men. Lt. Col. Malcolm M. Heber assumed leadership of the unit two years ago, and he has continued to uphold its original high standards. This year Maj. Burton T. Poole succeeded Lt. Col. David Hale as Executive Officer of the unit. Capt. John Galt, working with the assistance of Sgts. Clayton Richardson and Stanley Kulas, has served as Adiutant since the founding of the detachment. In charge of training is Capt. Robert W. Harman, assisted by Sgt. Paul Graham. Supplies are handled by Mai. Grant B. Rickard and Sgt. John Wozniak. Emphasis on leadership as well as savoir-faire is a characteristic of the AFROTC cadet program. Michael "Snap that head around, mister." 5- M , L. The Group Staff. Front row: Hardy, Muskat, Cooper.

This year saw the inception of the Lancaster Honor Squadron, an hon- orary group comprising the outstanding cadets of the corps. Led by Gerald Benson, this organization is named in honor of Col. C. Hartwell Lancester, who founded the Amherst AFROTC unit and directed it for two years. In addition to classroom and drill work, cadets also receive instruction aloft. Flights from Westover Field are held frequently. Every man has a chance to handle the controls in the air under a pilot's supervision. That the spirit of co-operation and interest which has grown up between the College, the cadre, and the cadets has borne fruit is shown by the detachment's record. Led this year by Angus Mairs, the drill team has captured the New England area drill competition championship in two previous years, receiving honorable mention this year. Amherst cadets have been consistently commendable in leadership and ability both at summer camp and on active duty.

Amherst ........ Amherst ........ Football Amherst again emerged from the football season with an impressive-looking record. The team won the Little Three title and in compiling a record of six wins and two losses, scored more than twice as many points as its combined opponents. Yet the season was somewhat of a disappoint- ment. From a team which had lost only six members from 1953's undefeated squad and which appeared to have every position filled with two or three experienced men, many expected another undefeated season. However, this depth, a great asset in early season victories over mediocre teams, paradoxically proved to be one of the team's weak- nesses in the losses to Tufts and Trinity. There was never one starting team which had the opportunity to really develop into a coordinated unit. Throughout the season the quarterback post was a toss-up between Van Seasholes, Lee Hildreth, and Roger Morgan, Sandy Marrack, Harry Steuber, Frank Downey, and Ev McLennan displayed equal talents at tackle, while George Karch, Whitey Hart, Vic Maccagnan and Dave Lawrenz all saw extensive service at guard. Whenever starting halfbacks Bob Jedrey and Larry Morway tired, Jim Jenkins, Bill Manly, and Lee Van Jones provided fresh replacements. Behind powerfully running fullback Bob Kisiel stood Al McLean, Jim Connors, and Don Heydt, all of whom broke into the scoring column during the season. In the center spot Senior Abe Moses got the starting nod, but sophomore Bob King saw almost as extensive action, while at the ends Captain Bill Duffy, Will MacFarlane, and Ben lannotta shared the duties. The depth factor was a sizeable one in each of the first four games. Outmanned Colby, Union, Bowdoin, and Coast Guard teams were worn down by the heavy Jeff 1954 Season ........32 ........50 ........25 ........33 ........i4 6 ........12 ........2'I Colby .......

The running of Bob Jedrey and Larry Morway was the bright spot of the easy 32-12 victory over Colby. Jedrey scored two touchdowns and added a 53-yard kickoff iaunt for a fine performance. The running of Morway was again a big factor in the 50-'I4 rout of Union and the tighter 25-'I9 victory over Bowdoin, while Kisiel's touchdown runs of 85 and 55 yards spearheaded the 33-13 drubbing of the Cadets from Coast Guard. However, the fact that ten dif- ferent Jeff backs crossed the goal-line during these four games is an indication of the significant part played by the team's depth. That depth was a crucial factor is also attested to by the statistics which reveal that the difference between points scored by and against Amherst in the combined second halves was 33 points greater than the same difference in the combined first halves. The absence of a really coordinated starting unit was reflected in the impotency of the Jeff's offense in the Wesleyan game.

However, the fine defensive play, marked particularly by the outstanding work of linemen Harry Steuber and Dave Lawrenz was enough to break the four-year Wesleyan iinx ancl give Amherst a 'I4-O victory. Having played five games against mediocre teams, the Jeffs finally encountered two very respectable opponents in Tufts and Trinity. The wholesale substitution of earlier games was impossible and freshness was no longer a suit- able replacement for coordination. ln these two games many players felt, despite the unfortunate outcome, that for the first time they had really played football. Fought in the rain and mud, the 7-6 loss to Tufts which broke the Jeff's 14-game undefeated streak was, a fine defensive battle. Except for a 78-yard touchdown run by halfback Dave Wells, the Amherst men held the Jumbos to 80 yards rushing. However, fumbles, intercepted passes and a fine Tufts line were enough to halt the Amherst offensive ma- chine after one touchdown, and the extra point proved to be the deciding factor. Extra-point kicking troubled the Purple throughout the season, end Will MacFarlane, whose talented toe made good T5 out of 17 conversion attempts during the 1953 season, was lost for most of the games due to a foot injury and no one seemed capable of filling in adequately. First-half defensive lapses proved fatal in the battle against Trinity.

N, Ja-Q J 55 333 Amherst men came back with 12 points after the intermis- sion but were unable to salvage the game. With Lee Van Jones side-lined due to a leg iniury, halfback Bob Jedrey played practically the whole game and turned in his best performance of the season. George Karch played the entire game at right guard and was unquestionably the out- standing lineman. Despite the surprising opposition provided by a fired- up Williams team, the final game of the season ended in a 21-14 Amherst victory and gave the Jeffs possession of the Little Three crown for the third consecutive year. A belated fourth-quarter Eph rally was stifled by the strong Amherst line and spectators left the field well satisfied by the team's impressive play. In this as in all seasons there were individuals who distinguished themselves through particularly outstanding performances. ln this category are fullback Bob Kisiel and guard George Karch. Although he carried the ball more than twice as often as any of the other backfield men, Kisiel never seemed to tire, his tremendous drive never seemed to falter. Not only did he lead the Jeff in total yardage and total points, but his driving spirit was also an important factor in the team's psychology. Karch, who was voted the team's most valuable player, displayed some of the finest line play ever seen at Amherst. The season was not an excellent one, but a good one. The disappointment of the broken 14-game undefeated streak was softened by the ioy of winning a third-straight Little Three crown, and the 6-2 record will certainly look very respectable in the books.

A mediocre record, 3-4-T, was high- lighted by a squad and a heartbreaking l-0 loss to Williams in the Little Three championship game. Coach "Eli" Marsh explained the failure of his thirty- fifth Amherst soccer team to achieve its expected pre-season l-O victory over a high-spirited Wesleyan potential as due to the lack of an adequate scoring punch in the forward line. With twelve lettermen graduating, fourteen returning, and several good players moving up from the once-beaten freshman team, Coach Marsh thinks the team will be "fifty percent stronger" next year. .

The initial game of the 1954 season brought a vengeance-minded Dartmouth squad to a thoroughly drenched Hitchcock field. Determined to avenge last year's humiliating 4-3 loss to the Jeffs which cost them the New England Soccer League title and ruined an otherwise spot- less record, the Indians surged to an early lead. Wing lrv Robins knotted the score at 'I-1, but a Green goal just before the half put Amherst in the hole again. Scoring two goals in the second half, the Green weathered a spirited last-quarter rally, climaxed by Co-captain Hal Seward's tally, making the final score 4-2. Bouncing back, Amherst swept to impressive victories over Tufts and U. Mass. by identical 4-0 scores. Center Russ Knowles, with three goals, provided the big punch in the Tufts game. A hard-fought contest with the University, scoreless for two and one-half periods, was turned into a rout as the Jeffs punched in one goal midway in the third quarter and then added three more in the fourth.

A goal by forward Pete Wykoff sent the Jeffs off to an early lead. A resurgent Cardinal team was halted repeatedly through- out the rest of the game by the fine defensive play of goalie John Goldthwait, Co-captain Charley Rogers, and fullbacks Don Beardwood and Norm Brown. Encountering three of the best teams in the N.E.l. League, the Jeffs ended the season weakly. Harvard and Trinity hung identical 5-l losses on the Sabrinas, and in the Litttle Three classic, Williams handed the Jeffs a heart- breaking l-0 defeat despite fine play by many members of the team.

Under the tutelage of Coach Rick Wilson, the seniors-Captain Jerry Benson, Pete Scott, and Bud Allen-developed their in- dividual specialties to perfection and combined their talents to lead Amherst to its 16-6 record. Benson, due to his expert ball-handling and cool headedness on the floor, was the playmaker of the team. Although not an exceptionally high scorer, he more than made up for this point deficiency by the timeliness of his points and the leadership he exhibited as Captain. Pete Scott's specialty was scoring and, fortunately for the Sabrina cagers, he scored when most needed. His uncanny eye on set shots and from the foul line, plus his great driving ability, netted him an average of 16 points per game, including a record-breaking 39 points against M.I.T. The defensive standout on the team was Bud Allen, whose ability to come up with the ball through intercep- tions and rebounds contributed heavily to the Jeff's success. Allen's great competitive spirit was an inspiration to the team, as he showed his best when the chips were down. x milf" Why Amherst was second in total defense. The other two members of the starting five were junior Doug Hawkins and sophomore Dick Anderson. Hawkins was a pillar of strength for the Purple averaging 15 rebounds per game and leading the team in scoring with a 17.5 average. Anderson showed marked improve- ment this year, connecting on over 40M of his shots. Coach Wilson expects great things from these two in the future. Manager Fillman, Captain Benson, and Coach Wilson. Front row: Eckhardt, Gould, Anderson, Hawkins, Benson, Scott, Allen, Rumrill. Second row: Trainer Stanitis, Webster, Symmes, Rabbino, Ascari, Knight, Zeigler, Boley, Coach Wilson. A large part of the team's success was due to its ex- cellent defense. Leading the country's small colleges in this department, the Sabrinas allowed their opponents an average of only 56.1 points per game, while scoring an average of 66.3 points themselves. Another indispensable factor this year was the con- tinued spirit and enthusiasm of the bench. Ben Boley, Clark Rumrill, and Stowell Symmes all saw considerable action. Boley pulled the Union game out of the fire with a 13-point total and also provided probably the most electrifying single play of the year by tossing in a long set shot against lona to send the game into over-time. Rumrill reached double figures three times during the season, and Symme's constant spark contributed immeasur- ably to the team morale. Opening the season against Yale, the Jeffs came from behind to trim the Eli's 61-56, then quickly added their second Ivy League triumph by edging Brown, 71-70. Characteristic of their play throughout most of the season was the A.l.C. game. Amherst opened slowly, but in the second half the Sabrina quintet caught fire, controlled both backboards and walloped the Aces, 79-59. Three days later, a poor Coast Guard team succumbed before the Jeff onslaught, 49-36. Avenging last year's defeat, Amherst trounced Army 68-50, despite the efforts of the Black Knight's Mark Binstein, Don Holleder and Norris Harbold. At this point in the season, the team traveled to the University of Connecticut to compete in the New England College Tournament. After dropping the first contest to Middlebury, 71-68, the Jeffs bounced back to defeat U. Mass., 69-48, Gnd Hdrvdrd, 66-57, thus capturing third place in the tourney. Bates and Bowdoin provided the first post-vacation competition, and Amherst responded with two 20-point victories, 77-57, and 72-52, respectively. ln the following Scott Captain Benson Jeff fouled in Harvard win.

The Purple copped their eleventh victory of the season by defeating Union, 7i-33, before succumbing to the hands of an inspired Wesleyan team, 62-58. The Cardinals clearly outplayed Amherst and thus captured their first leg of the Little Three Title. Allen Anderson Springfield handed Amherst its second-straight loss as Ron Clark sent the game into overtime with a last-second tip-in. Three of the Sabrina starters-Hawkins, Scott and Allen-fouled out within the first minute of the overtime period and Springfield won going away, 82-73. U.

Scott's set-shots with torty seconds remaining in the game set the stage for Boley's dramatic basket, but a long goal and a foul shot put the game on ice for the Gaels from New Rochelle. Against Tufts, the Jeffs sank better than 4O'X: of their shots from the floor, but the Jumbos hit for a phe- nomenal STWQ to trip the Purple, 71-67. Undefeated and N.C.A.A.-bound Williams was the next to invade Pratt Cage and before some 3500 fans, the Ephs were humbled, 68-60. This game exhibited Amherst at its best-a team which passed sharply, rebounded well, and shot accurately. Scott, Benson, and Allen combined to give the JeFFs 48 points of their total. Starting from its previous loss to Wesleyan, the Sabrinas whipped the visitors in their second meeting, 59-47. With this victory, the Little Three title rested on the outcome of the Williams-Amherst contest on March 5th at Williamstown. ragga Hawkins and Allen have too much height. Allen on the way Scotty's big night. M.I.T. became the sixteenth victim of the Jeff attack. This was the last home-game of the season, and Scott responded with his phenomenal 39-point effort. The year's finale was the traditional Williams game. Playing possession ball, with Allen leading a brilliant defense, the Jelfs held a 27-20 lead at halftime. However, the second stanza spelled disaster for Amherst as the Ephs caught fire and earned their sweetest victory of the season, trimming the Jeffs, 53-48. Although the loss of Benson, Scott and Allen will be considerably felt, Coach Rick Wilson is hoping to rebuild the team around Hawkins and Anderson, while relying upon good performers from this year's bench, plus several promising freshmen. Members of this year's varsity squad who ought to see action next season are iuniors Boley, Symmes, Rumrill, Rabbino, and sophomores Webster, Tooman, and Knight. Up from an outstanding freshman team and competing for the starting berths will be Bill Warren, Pete Jenkins, Tom Gorman, and George Van Arnam. In any event, it is certain that the team will be giving its all in an effort to follow in the footsteps of its spirited predecessor.

Particular credit for the successful season is due to sopho- more Bob Keiter who led the team in total points, lowered his own Amherst 50-yard freestyle record three times, and scored victories in the 50- and 100-yard freestyle events in the N.E.l. meet. Having lost only one of last year's lettermen through graduation and strengthened by a number of outstanding sophomores, the Jeffs opened the season with an easy 53-31 win over M.l.T.

Keiter lowered his own school record in the 50-yard free- style, and Dave Van Hoesen came into his own in the diving competition. After easy victories over Trinity and McGill, Amherst outclassed arch-rival Wesleyan, the tally reading 5'l-28. Helmreich set a New England record in his specialty. ln preparation for the crucial Williams meet, the team scored victories over Brown and Bowdoin. Then, hoping for their lOth consecutive victory, the .leffs traveled to Williamstown to meet a powerful Eph squad. Despite a double victory by Keiter, Amherst lost the hard-fought meet, 46-38. ln its final test of the season the squad took a second place behind Springfield in the T3-team N.E.l. meet. Pray at the turn. Throughout the season, excellent performances were turned in by Captain Pray, iunior Bob Hamrin and sopho- mores Jim Savage and John Thompson in addition to those already mentioned. With its abundance of improving talent in the sophomore and junior classes, the Amherst swimming team can look forward to another successful record season.

Under the hand of Coach Ben McCabe, particularly outstanding were Captain Deane Tank, with a 5-2 record, and Captain-elect Dunc Patten, with a 6-1 slate. Springfield's overall balance and power proved too much for the Jeffs, as the opening contest of the year resulted in a 21-7 Amherst loss. Fred Felton, at 177 pounds, and Patten, in the unlimited division, turned in the only two wins. ln the second meet of the season, against Coast Guard, Tank came through with a 22-2 score at 130 pounds, the highest total which Coach McCabe can remember having seen. Felton and Jeff Disston took decisions in their classes, but these were not sufficient to defeat the powerful Mariners. After posting victories over Dartmouth and Tufts, by six and four points respectively, Amherst played host to a strong Harvard contingent, which returned to Cambridge with a 21-9 win. Consistent scorers Tank, Patten and Ernie Oppenheimer, at 137 pounds, emerged victorious, but Fred Felton suffered his first loss of the year, and on the whole the Crimsons displayed too much strength for the Jeffs.

Though Win Danielson, again wrestling at 123 pounds after being iniured, gave the Amherstmen an opening advantage, and Deane Tank, in the closest match of the afternoon, came out with a tie, Fred Felton and Dunc Patten were the only other JeFfmen to taste victory at Williamstown.

Amherst finished fifth in the N.E.I's, with Patten the heavyweight champion and Tank and Felton second and third in their respective weight divisions.

Hockey The Amherst hockey team's record of 4-9 was below expectations for their first season on the new rink. How- ever, their effectiveness was reduced considerably by ill- nesses and injuries which plagued them throughout the winter. Having postponed the opening of the Orr Rink be- cause of rain, the Jeffs met A.I.C. at the Springfield Coliseum. There they dropped a 9-5 decision. The U. Mass. forces met Amherst next in the Dedication Day contest, and the visitors managed to eke out a 5-4 win. The Cadets at West Point triumphed by a 10-3 count largely because of a first period onslaught. After successive losses to Middlebury and Norwich, the winless Sabrinas came up against Williams in a do- or-die situation. Coming up from behind, the Jeffs sent the game into overtime, and, with ten seconds remaining, Andy Anderson netted the seventh and deciding goal. When a series of illnesses hit the team, incapacitating Ky Sylvester and Tim Perry, the Jeffs lost to U. Mass., 4-3, in an overtime contest. However, against M.l.T., the team came to life and skated off with an 8-5 victory. In an in- formal game gainst a newly-formed Wesleyan team, Hal Seward paced the Jeffs to a T3-i win, scoring five goals. After a loss to Hamilton, the Crusaders of Holy Cross fell, 4-2, thanks to the "hat-trick" effort of sophomore Ed Stringer, who broke his wrist late in the first period. Anderson backhands one against U. Mass. Coach Richardson, Co-captains Davenport and Nash, Manager Pfaelzer Stringer notches one against Holy Cross. Against a superior Tufts team, Amherst took a 2-1 lead, but lack of reserves soon showed, and the .Iumbos won, 10-3. Journeying to Williamstown, the Jeffs tried to stay up with a slick-skating Eph team, but a 5-1 loss tells the story. Leaving the squad upon graduation will be Co-captains Les Nash and Sam Davenport, Tim Perry and Hal Seward. Coach "Red" Richardson will have to count heavily upon Captain-elect Andy Anderson, Ky Sylvester, Ed Stringer, Dick Fischer and Dick Volpert for strength in the front line. Next year the defensemen Bruce Biddle and Pete Zucker should see 'action in front of Harry Gotoff, who goal-tended admirably this season. On the whole, pros- pects are far more hopeful than the past year's record would seem to dictate. ak Nash and Zucker help shut the door against the Crusaders. 1955 Season Amherst .... .......

I A 1 1 '13 FQ A, 'if X " 2. l 5 Squa h Showing remarkable improvement over last year, the squash team turned in a winning season, with tive victories and four defeats, despite the loss of three of last year's lettermen. This upswing was due to the guidance of Gordon Reid, who took over as full-time coach, and to three seniors who competed for the first time. These men, Don MacDonald, Jim Hicks, and Irv Robins, gave the team great depth in the lower positions. Coupled with the fine playing of number one man Don MacDougall and Captain Bob Herd, this factor gave the team better balance than that of any seen on the Amherst courts in many years. In the opener against a strong Yale team, the only win was registered by Van Ooms. The Black Knights of Army likewise overpowered the JeFfs, in a shutout victory. Things picked up, however, in the next match with Trinity. This time a shutout went our way. M.I.T. was the next to fall, but Princeton, probably the best team in the East, was more than Amherst could handle. Two successive victories, over Dartmouth and Wesleyan, brought the record over to the winning side. Despite a loss to Harvard, the season successfully culminated in an upset victory over Williams. In winning this match and taking the Little Three champion- ship, every member of the team showed his best form of the season-form that should enable Amherst to do equally well next year. sf Hicks' return leaves opponent out ofthe picture. 4.

Under the tutelage and guidance of Coach Steve Rostas and Captain Tom Carstensen, the team did re- markably well. In the New Hampshire Downhill, Carstensen captured fourth. Later, in the Dartmouth-Sunapee Giant Slalom, considerable improvement was shown by the entire team. Next year's outlook appears bright for the Jeff skiers. Carstensen is the only member of the team who will be lost due to graduation, and several freshmen appear promising. Captain-elect Dick Vitzhum, out for most of the year with a leg iniury, and Howie Rotner, also injured this winter, ought to add some much-needed depth to the team next year . . . now, let's hope for a little snow!

Back from a moderately successful southern spring tour, during which they posted a 3-5 record, the Jefts appear to be well on the way to solving these problems. With seven returning lettermen and a strong contingent of promising sophomores, all positions except shortstop appear to be well-manned. ln the outfield, lettermen John Zink and Will MarFarlane will probably be joined by con- verted catcher Sam Davenport, sophomore Bill Ziegenfus, or sophomore Bob Wood. ln the infield, Captain Bob Jedrey will handle the first-base duties with lettermen Vic Maccagnan and Lee Hildreth at third base and behind the plate respectively.

C The Amherst lacrosse team, with eight regulars and seven other lettermen returning, has a good chance of equaling or surpassing last season's seven and one record. Captained by Jack Phillips and Sabu Burns, Coach Rostas's squad is expected to be very strong at defense and mid- field, but the attack is the big question mark. This year's schedule is the same as last season's, except that Williams has been taken on in place of Middlebury. The Williams game will probably be one of the most difficult, as the Ephs play in a league one step above ours. New Hampshire, the only team to beat the T954 Sabrinas, is expected to again be a difficult opponent. The Jeffs are a well-rounded team and they should perform commendably against their rugged competition. last year's goalie Harry Gotoff will again start in the nets, and sophomores Tom Craig, Jack Shepard and Stu Tuller, standouts on the T954 freshman team, should further strengthen the varsity at midfield and clefense. Senior Gordie Forbes is an outstanding defenseman, and Bob Flemma and Andy Anderson will join Captain Phillips on the first midfield. Russ Knowles, JeFf Fillman, Al McLellan and John Funkhouser comprise the attack. There is no doubt that the squad possesses the potential to excel, teamwork, which will come with practice, is the only other ingredient needed for success.

Badly hit by graduation, the team lost its first four men, two of which comprise the number-one doubles team. Captain Mark Hanschka, Jim Hicks, Jerry Cogan, Neil Hurlbut, and Roger Williams return, all of whom saw con- siderable varsity action last year. These men-along with senior Don MacDougall and sophomores Pierce Gard- ner and Bub Dillon-should carry the brunt of the ten- match strain. Coach Reid, in summing up his outlook, says, "We are hoping for the best, but inexperience will hamper us, particularly in view of the top-notch competition we will face." Typical of this high-level opposition is Amherst's open- ing match at New Haven, as Yale is currently the number- one team in New England. After this contest the Jeffs face Brown and Bowdoin at home, and then they travel to Trinity. Subsequently, the University of North Carolina, number-one in the nation last year, moves north to Purple- town. Dartmouth, Harvard, and Williams, which follow, in addition to Yale and the University of North Carolina, are the most difficult hurdles of the season. The team's final match is at Wesleyan, where it should insure for itself at least second place in the Little Three. 9 Front row: Sorenson, Lane, Yarnall, Dillon.

Manager Hobbs, Gately, Perry, Knight, Allen, Carter, Donelson, Clemence, Shepherd. With four lettermen returning this year, several promising sophomores moving up from the freshman team, and considerable depth throughout the squad, the prospects for a successful golf season seem excellent. Coach Red Richardson and Captain Bud Allen are hoping to improve upon last year's 7-4 record and retain the Little Three championship which Amherst won last season in a 14-13 upset over Williams. Kneeling: Coxswain Endriss. Standing: Burleigh, Earle, Allen, Lemal, Macauley, Marion, Langs, Gutmann, Coach Fox. Coach Philip Fox's varsity crew went into action this spring with a heavy and well-seasoned boat. Though the southern trip did not produce a sensational showing, the participants benefited greatly, and, upon returning north, they seemed to be prepared for their six-race schedule. While the Yale third boat and the Dartmouth varsity can always be counted upon to present stiff competition, Co-captains Dick Langs and Skip Earle hope to turn in a winning record as well as to close the season with a victory in the Dad Vail Regatta, held in Philadelphia.

Captain Allen. 145 Freshman Sports Football The freshman football team, which Coach Ben McCabe said " . . . was at least as good as any I've ever had," enjoyed a very successful season, defeating all opponents except a power-laden Williams contingent. The impressive 4-l record: Andover, 20-6, Wesleyan, 26-6, Monson, 40-O, Trinity, 35-0, and Williams, 6-19. Captained by center Bill Alsup, the squad showed markedly high 'spirit from the bench to the gridiron. Distinguishing themselves through fine play were tackles Preston Brown and Mike Abodeely, backs Dave Woodruff, Marsh McLean, Jim Krumsiek, Dave Stowe, and Tom Gorman, and center Alsup. In all, if the spirit and ability of this year's Little Jeffs are to be taken as an indication of Amherst's football potentialities for the next three years, the prognosis is highly favorable. Cross Country Although this year's freshman cross country team did not have a successful season in terms of the won and lost record, C0-5D, the squad showed continued spirit and determination in the face of stronger opposition. Co-captains Bill Warren and .lim Allen consistently ran one-two for the Amherst harriers, the former setting an Amherst freshman course record in the U. Mass. meet. Along with Warren and Allen, Al Haught, Walt McMurray, Brooks Low, Al Fontana, Bob Deane, Bob West, and Pete Gardiner will provide material for Coach Lumley's future varsities. if f K , 5 ,bij xx N A 2 3 V pig QI -G5 il? figwufwu The freshman soccer team, coached by Steve Rostas and under the leader- ship of Captain Peter Fernald, compiled an impressive record of four wins and S one loss, bowing only to Wesleyan, 3-i. The Little Jeff booters gained decisions over Worcester, U. Mass., and Trinity, concluding the season by pinning a 1-0 defeat on Williams. Outstanding players were center-half David Hicks, Captain Fernald, high- scorer Dave Ford and goalie John Goddard. Although only twelve of the squad had gained varsity letters in prep school, the high team spirit contributed greatly to the accomplishments achieved this year. Swimming The frosh swimmers performed well on occasion but posted a rather mediocre 2-3 record. However, the Little Jeffs were swimming against some of the stiffest competition in New England. Their two wins were over Deerfield and Mt. Hermon, while they dropped close meets to Willis- ton, Wesleyan, and Williams. Outstanding on the team were Co-captains Walt McMurray and John Faissler, and Warren Walker. McMurray, swimming the 200-yard free- style and the 150-yard individual medley, gar- nered four first places, Walker won three of his five diving events, and Faissler was also a con- sistent point-getter. Dave Waller, Hank Gideonse, Bill Jackson, and Ben Ansbacher provided the depth which turned defeat into victory on two ' ' occasions. 'I' X xx. S- The freshman basketball team enioyed an exceptionally fine season, compiling an impressive 8-12 record and capturing the coveted Little Three championship. The starting team, consisting of Captain Tom Gorman, Bill Warren, Pete Jenkins, George Van Arnam, and Hans Utsch, consistently and effectively co-ordinated their Basketball efforts throughout the season. Warren and Jenkins were the high scorers, backed by Van Arnam's strong fioor play, Utsch's defensive ability, and Gorman's rebounding and competitive spirit. Warren scored 30 or more points on two occasions and Jenkins notched the same total against U. Mass. Skip Routh, Cris Horton, and Pete Kunz also saw considerable action, with Routh sparking the Little Jeffs to a 60-56 win over Williams for the Little Three crown. Wrestling Coach Ben McCabe's frosh wrestling team posted a surprising 14-'Il victory over Williams after dropping their first two meets to Mt. Hermon and Wesleyan. Handicaped by iniuries, the frosh, under the leadership of Captain Bob Thompson, nevertheless showed great promise as future varsity material. Hutch Tibbetts, Dick Danielson, Morris Wolff, Joe McDonald, Dick Burton, and Bob Thompson all made a creditable showing at the N.E.l.'s, with Thompson receiving the champion's laurels in the 147-pound class. H4-2' 'r Hockey Hampered by lack of experience, the fresh- man hockey team turned in a record of one win in five starts. Their solitary victory was over Williston, losses being to Deerfield, U. Mass., and Williams. In spite of their record, the frosh should supply valuable material for the varsity in the persons of Co-captains Pete Van Dusen and Joe Davidson, and goalie John Goddard. ?"HennQ,,. .CiT T Q A 5 . ,-- 4- -.qs . ., , - . .-, H- D- , -.4 W . ,X ,ef--vw-.g..s,g,g..-1A-wg: if L Aw..- "1-f- -TA.: - " T JH" -.wel sr'?"'fT:gf.4wi'b Tennis Spring Teams Golf Baseball Track A 'x 1 ' , ,,X .

Made UP Of the mU"'U9el'S and assistant managers of all varsity and freshman sports, the Amherst College Managerial Association provides for an efficient coordina- tion and standardization of managerial competitions, and enables the Athletic Depart- ment to keep its records and bookkeeping in order. ln his capacity as president, Tick Litchfield presided at competition meetings, and, together with other officers, decided upon all awards to managers. Austin Frum assisted as vice-president, and Chuck Cooper served as secretary. As in former years, Mrs. Lesley Kinney acted as a general guide and advisor, and her experience proved invaluable to the smooth operation of the Association. 'I954-55 was marked by increasing interest and ability in the sophomore competitors for managerial positions. Intramural Council Front row: Liberman, Levison, Dean, Walles. Second row: Wickham, Anderson, Tonidandel, Magid. f The Amherst intramural program is designed to encourage student participation in a wide range of competitive activities. The various social organizations vie for the over-all title which is based upon performance in such activities as chess, scholarship, and debating as well as most of the maior and minor sports. The Intramural Council, consisting of representatives from each group, directs all activities, decides upon the rules and regulations, and tries to increase interest and participation in intramural events. Chairman for 'I954-55, George Dean, worked with Mr. Van Petersilge, administrative coordinator, to set up schedules for athletic events, and to provide officials. Robert Spencer was chairman on student eligibility, while Professor Albert Lumley served as faculty advisor. The Council decided to alter the tag ruling in touch football, and radically reshuffied the scoring of the swimming events. Through such eFForts, intramural competition saw a tremendous upsurge of enthusiasm in all phases of its program. f,f.f.f,f.f.f,f.1.f.f-,f.f.,inf.1.f,f,f-.fff-.f.,-.1-.f.f-1 There is always one outstanding men's shop in a community which is noted for its quality merchandise and popular prices.
