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. '
Professor Laurence B. Packard left his mark, that of
intellectual curiosity intermingled with dynamic instruction
and understanding kindliness, indelibly on the Amherst
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
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
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.

Answering to the voice of her new master, Professor
Edwin B. 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-
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
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.

Graduation marked the exit of a class rich in athletic
talent, superior in academic ability, and unusual in its
capacity for leadership and mature action. 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
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.

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.

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.
Seated: Uricchio, Lewis, Dean, Allen: Standing: Fox, Roda, Carter, Powers, Gutmann, Jones, Hindle, Brown.

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. As the spring
progressed, a glance at the paper revealed that tennis captain

Hanschka, and baseball captain Jedry were well on their way
to fame and fortune. '
A happy and successful year was terminated at Com-
mencement, and all the seniors graduated.
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.

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
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."

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.

The year T954-55 was, for Alpha Chi of Chi Psi, a
year marked by vast internal improvements. 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-
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.

Delta Kappa Epsilon
If any sociologist were to walk all the way up the hill to
observe the inhabitants of the Deke house, it would not take
him long to make three quite valid observations. 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

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
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.

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
These, then, were the highlights of the 1954-55 Amherst

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-
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
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.

Phi Delta Sigma
The house in President Cole's backyard completed its first
full year as Phi Delta Sigma, sporting a new green and white
Hag and brass letters on the doors. 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.

Phi Gamma Delta
From the depths of the Fiiiland iungles, from behind
locked study doors, from the slick slap of senior pre-meds
throwing cards on the table, from the classic harmonies of
Fiji Glee Clubbers and the less harmonious classics of the
traditional Sunday night sing groups, from the thuds of
living room football to the geometric gritting of teeth in the
renovated pool room, and even from the righteous voice
of the "Straight Arrow" and the unrighteous voice of the
date post-mortem-from all these voices emerged one
clear-cut trend. 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.

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

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

Theta Xi carried out a new sort of fraternity proiect during
the fall semester, we attempted an assessment of the Amherst
curriculum, featuring a series of weekly discussions with faculty
members, and endless arguments which produced exclamations
such as, "But Physics is aesthetically satisfying! !" 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
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
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.

seniors went forth from Amherst to swell the ranks of the

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.

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
As a result of discontent among freshmen concerning the
arbitrary manner in which rooms. have been assigned in the

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
ln response to complaints concerning the high prices of
used and second-hand books, Council initiated a coordinating

successful and SPHINX was delegated the responsibility of
running the exchange in the future.

interest. Officers were: George Bobrinskoy, president, Gordon

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
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.

lett, '28, vice-president: and Bruce B.

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
Mid-year election ushered in Markham Ball as

The 100th edition of the OLIO was published in May 1954. 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. Split the nonsense from the seriousness-and remember
as one old sage has said: "Our product is in your hands."

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.

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
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
The second semester Senior Board consisted of Charles Morgan,
'56, station manager, Al Damon, '56, program director, C. Jeffrey
Kalil, '56, personnel director, Joe Snyder, '56, technical director
and Duncan MacQueen, '56, business manager.

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-
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.

Morgan meefs his mcfch in Shaw's MAN AND SUPERMAN.
The T954-55 season at Kirby Theatre opened
with George Bernard Shaw's comedy, "Man and
Superman." 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
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
Seated: Ritter, Runser, Francisco, Lehrman, Hertz. Standing: Marks,

ment of Dramatic Arts, the production was managed
by Professor McGoun. 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

A J' Glee Club
Singing under the direction of conductor Charles
W. Ludington, assisted by Crayton Bedford, '56, the
Glee Club made i954-55 one of its most successful
seasons. 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. Dur-
I V ing the spring term joint concerts were held with
Mf- L'-'dl"9l0" dlfecfs- Radcliffe College and Vassar College.
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
Hod Moses served as president of the club, and
Jim Dillon handled the managerial tasks.
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.

Past and present Zumbyes harmonize.
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
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.
There were moments this year when members of the DQ
could not tell themselves from an itinerant vaudeville team.

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
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

The focal point of the Christian Association activity this year was unques-
tionably the fellowship of the Christian community of students. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This year the Amherst College Automobile As-
sociation continued its thorough and concerted drive
to direct traffic along lawful lines. 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.
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-
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.

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

seniors constitute the second class to receive their com-

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

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

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

line and the continual stream of fresh replacements, in
the Union game alone, 45 Amherst men saw action. 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. Unable to move throughout most of the

until four minutes before the intermission. 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. Behind 21-O at half-time, the

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-
Despite the surprising opposition provided by a fired-

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.

Failing to record a victorious season for the first time in
nearly twenty years the 1954 soccer team was charac-
terized by its inability to coordinate a successful attack
in many of its games. 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.

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. The series between the two schools now
stands at 22-6-2 in Amherst's favor.

The Amherst varsity cross country team recorded its
most successful season in several years, posting four wins
and two losses. Finishing second in the Little Three, the
Amherst harriers had impressive victories over Boston
College, Middlebury, W.P.l. and Williams, while losing
only to U. Mass. and Wesleyan, the two strongest teams
in New England. Captained by senior Dick Baughman
and led by junior Barry Brown, who managed to break
his own course record twice, the team acted as a unit
throughout the season and depended heavily upon the scor-
ing ot seniors Bob Lansdowne and Dick Ryder, iuniors Rob
Waller and Pete Sabey, and sophomores Jim Avery and
Joe Morton. With the help of a strong freshman squad,
next year's varsity can expect an equally good season.

This was a year of superlatives for the Amherst
basketball team as three members culminated excep-
tionally fine careers and spearheaded the Jeff quintet to
their most successful season in many years. 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
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
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

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
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

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.

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

With nine victories in ten dual meets, a second place
in the highly-competitive New England Intercollegiate
Swimming Meet, and record-breaking performances by
several outstanding individuals, the 1954-55 swimming
team, led by Captain Buddy Pray, proved itself to be one
of the best seen at Amherst since 1937's undefeated squad.
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. Continuing to show amazing strength,

Coach McCabe gives Captain Tank last-minute advice.
Even though the 1954-55 Amherst wrestling team was
hampered by iniuries and illnesses, the season's mark of
two wins in seven meets does not indicate the effectiveness
of several individual performers. 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

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.

The following week McCabe's men were soundly

days later Williams, too, turned the trick. 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. A forfeit
coupled with inexperienced upper-weight men spelled
defeat for the visitors.

spirited determination which Ben McCabe has always been
known to instill.

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

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.

Amherst baseball season is to be a success. 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. On the strength of his smooth field-

defending its position as Little Three co-champions.
Wesleyan, with an effective pitching staff returning from
last year's team and a strong group of promising soph-
omores, looms as the chief Little Three rival.

Joe Morton, Ken Kermes, Jim Hastings, Dan Johns, George

valuable experience, but showed that the Amherst track

Knowles fires at Deerfield goalie in scrimmage. 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.

for the 1955 Amherst tennis team to improve upon last
year's three and five season. 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.

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 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.

The Jeff golfers face a tough schedule, with Yale, Dartmouth, and Williams
looming as the season's roughest matches.
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
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.
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.

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.
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 ' '
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
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
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.
Coach Ben McCabe's frosh wrestling team
posted a surprising 14-'Il victory over Williams
after dropping their first two meets to Mt. Hermon
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,

Thompson receiving the champion's laurels in the
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

supply valuable material for the varsity in the
persons of Co-captains Pete Van Dusen and Joe
Davidson, and goalie John Goddard.

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.
Front row: Liberman, Levison, Dean, Walles. Second row: Wickham, Anderson, Tonidandel, Magid.
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.
