The OLIO, published each year, serves a number of pur-
poses. At first it gives pleasure by catching and fixing in
print and pictures familiar scenes and faces. Then it becomes
an historical record of a college year and may be referred
to in order to check a memory. Eventually it becomes a nos-
talgic delight, for in its pages an alumnus can recapture for
a moment the atmosphere of his undergraduate days and
even the golden haze, grown more golden with the passing
years. The OLIO seldom reflects adequately the central
academic concerns of the College, the classroom, the stacks
of the Library, the laboratories, the hour tests, the honors
theses, the long conferences with faculty members. But for
the rest it preserves and immortalizes many of the distinctive
qualities of life at Amherst College.
Charles W. Cole
Professor Geoffroy Atkinson '13, for thirty-six years has been a teacher of
Romance Languages in his Alma Mater, and during two world wars has
served his country. Fearlessly honest, he has always set for his students and
for himself the highest standards of scholarship. His numerous books on voy-
age literature have earned him the highest reputation as an historian of
ideas, and that reputation has been confirmed by his recent studies of
Balzac. A poet himself, he has translated Francois Villon. His originality
and his wit have stimulated generations of Amherst men to think straight.
To Professor Atkinson this issue of the OLIO is respectfully dedicated.

Amherst, to each one of us in a differ-
ent way, is greater than the sum of its
parts. We will take from Amherst
what we will . , . perhaps these pic-
torial and verbal impressions may
cast some new lights on four years at
Amherst, and may give a sense of the
way things have changed, and have
not changed, in both the distant and
the immediate past. Our impressions
in the large part are formed by
these various buildings and monu-
ments which mold, to a great extent,
our lives at Amherst, and which are
often neglected in the weekly round
of classes, athletics, and social ac-

the student should try to line himself
up on the side of good sense, good
taste, and if possible, good humor."
"It is acknowledged that there is in some of
the societies too much fondness for prome-
nacles, dances, and other amusements, espe-
cially in the winter term, which is the most
appropriate and favorable season for relig-
ious interest. But drinking and carousing
are not tolerated in the society houses . . ."

Despite an air of casual sophistication, the brothers at the
temple worked hard from the beginning of the year in at-
tempting to excell in their academic, social, and athletic en-
deavors. lnspired by the exhortations to scholarship of
Professor Ben Ziegler, the brothers made a conscious effort
to raise the house average. By the end of the first semester,
academic stability was achieved, and the future prospects
appeared somewhat brighter. Jim Vernon, as house presi-
dent, obtained house cooperation in all efforts, which were
whimsically recorded by Secretary Brown.
From September, when the bar was renovated, to the end
of the year, the brothers showed a marked interest in social
life. Social chairman Dick Leavitt was responsible for several
of the most memorable rehearsed and unrehearsed parties
in recent years. Parents' Weekend saw many parents out-
lasting their sons on the dance floor after a successful buffet
supper. Alumni Weekend was highlighted by the initiation
of twenty-five new brothers and the return of many grads
who appeared not at all saddened by the outcome of the
football game. The December house party featured a cos-
tume dance, and Brother Betke was awarded a bottle of
scotch for his portrayal of the Sheik of Araby. The Saturday
and Sunday night bar groups were well attended and

Howie Rotner piloted the gay, gallant ship during the sec-
ond semester. Social life continued unabated, and the broth-
ers maintained a respectable representation in extra-
curricular activities. After a slow start, the intramural athletes
scored several modest successes. Weekly literary produc-
tions were unusually informative and entertaining, as the
newly initiated sophomores enthusiastically discoursed on a
variety of subiects. There was considerable interest in reviv-
ing the faculty speaker program. The brothers were shocked
and saddened at news of Ned Schroeder's death over the
The spring house dance and the parties on "Sunova
Beach" made the second semester a bit sunnier. At the end
of the year, the brothers agreed that it had been the best
year ever and resolved to try it all again sometime.

On Boltwood stands the Beta lair
V, , Which welcomed brothers, all scholars fair,
Promising to avoid collision
ln Chi Phi's entrenched position.
The marks not high, though the brothers were,
With spirit, that is, not Juniper.
Pork and Org, as led by Sparrow,
Lent the round, the straight, the narrow.
The Bombers triumphed on the green!
A dirty but well-oiled machine,
This iuggernaut to all's surprise
Capped victor's cup and loser's eyes.
And total war a while was waged,
i , . , And Ace, eclipsed, became enraged
. Till Science One came on the scene
And Billo's face was wiped quite clean.
With suffix "O" we soon all talked,
While "sure-o" there old "Van-o" hawked.
The "Bone" committee was dubbed meek
But claimed in turn we did not seek.
Within and without the "Burls" flew,

Room colors changed, but black and blue?
The "Nippon" touch all thought was nice,
While "The Captain" plied his paradise.
The beverage boys made parties hum,
Serving "bubbly" and hot'greased rum.
Cats and dogs hither "Alo" steered,
Evicted, alas, they Thorny feared,
But pals he was with one feline,
And Leopard led a marching line.
Pins were lost and girls got roses,
While guys gained rings for their noses.
Our "Animal Farm" in goat was clean,
Shooed in were three who tipped the scene
Porkyderm, the Cat and The Bruin
Dialed channels for perfect viewin'.
"Cubes" and Wally in digging deep,
Brought in ci flock these ways to keep.
With those who from these halls now wend,
Frank Harris' proverb do we send,
In hopes that they'll remember e'er
The times with friends in Bott-Club lair.

ln September the Phis returned to dedicate themselves to the
pursuit of knowledge at Amherst, Mount Holyoke, and Smith.
During the fall, Saturdays were spent in bragging about
mesomorphic brethren to admiring dates, while on Sundays
the brethren would repair to the library to read about them-
selves in the newspapers. During this period nineteen
pledges were initiated, and a new advisor was housebroken.
ln November our eighty-third annual initiation banquet
was held. Many alumni and their wives returned for the
event, featuring a talk by John Bergin of the Madison Ave-
nue Chapter of Chi Phi, who illustrated modern advertising
methods by means of a campaign to sell the Amherst Product
-i"You'll never hire from Yale again when you staff your
firm with Amherst men"i.
The following Tuesday the administration took time out
from its daily round of pressing duties to devote special at-
tention to Chi Phi. Once again the Phis started reading
about themselves in the newspapers, but this time we'd made
the front page.
During the bleak days that followed, the Phis could be
found pursuing knowledge in such unlikely regions of the Tri-
college area as Barreys, Pine Rest, Rahars, and even the Pit.
As the semester drew to a close, the latter establishment
noted a constantly increasing Chi Phi clientele. Attendance
fell off drastically at the end of exams and our social quar-
antine, when the black flag was furled until further notice.

The new semester saw the enthusiastic brothers busily
painting the downstairs hall and rearranging the living room,
while crates of furniture courtesy of the Phi Corporation,
started accumulating at the door.
Bowery Brawl in February was a tremendous success, and
was immediately followed by the Brothers Russell lpurveyors
of fermented beveragesl chartering a plane to Florida for
a month of golf. The Phis then settled down to the serious
business of rushing, taking time out for a Jazz Age Party in
March. Spring found them torn between the delights of warm
sunny days and softball, and the ever-increasing rumblings
in the academic sky. As the rumblings increased to a cre-
scendo, the Chi Phis headed for shelter in the Pit and
managed to ride out the storm successfully.

This year, as Amherst men pondered and scrutinized their
fraternity system, the brothers of Alpha Chi reflected upon
life in the Lodge and found that it was good.
In the fall we initiated our sophomores, educated in the
ways of the fraternity by Pledgemaster Frank Reed. Our
Alumni Banquet, in part a tribute to Brother Charles Merrill
'08, was hailed as "one of the best" by our elders. On Wil-
liams weekend even the mighty figure of Lord Jeff on our
front lawn was not sufficient to protect the Lodge from the
ravages wrought by our guests, but the scars were soon
A winter house party, ably managed by Social Chairman
Rod Biggert, once again found the Great Hall and the ever-
present moose heads trimmed with tinsel and ribbon. The
Lodge acquired a pool table which was duly installed in the
old bar, and several brothers quickly attained the "shark"
category as they succumbed to the magnetic force of the
great machine and frequently dropped downstairs for "one

diligent Tom Levy, our house manager, fought the good
fight against failing fuses and faltering furnaces. ln the area
of policy we replaced the old faculty teas with a weekly
invitation to several members of the faculty to ioin us for a
"Coffee Hour" in the Library after our weekly goat.
One Proiect which occupied our attention throughout the
year was the remodeling of the old music room into a new
study area. The brothers undertook this work as a memorial
to Fred Felton '57, who died the previous summer.
With the arrival of spring the brotherhood, captained by
John Davis and Chuck Smith, turned enthusiastically to rush-

cessors. House Party and Prom saw the social calendar

Olympus faded before Greece failed, and Valhalla
burned before Germany, but Deke at Amherst stands firm
and eternal, her head in the celestial dawn, her roots in orig-
inal sin. From the hilltop site still glows the lamp of salvation
as it has since the fateful day in 1846 when a small band of
ardent tee-totalers founded upon this now hallowed soil a
seminary for the preservation of good fellowship and the
procreation of Presidents.
Reassembling in the autumn the Brothers continued the
modes of olde. The sacrificial beer flowed each Saturday
night under the ever watchful eye of the Social Regulator,
and visiting firemen found the more stimulating customs well
preserved in the Deke bar. House unity and spirit manifested
itself in a gathering one cold winter's clay at the ground-
breaking ceremony for the little chapel which the Brothers
plan to build iust behind the Barbecue pit.
The White Knights triumphed among the crusading forces
on Pratt Jousting Field as two of the Brothers fought for glory
at battles against Williams, Wesleyan, other pagan tribes.
The House also contributed managerial brain centers for
football, hockey, and freshman hockey and three more

Brothers brought blow-by-blow accounts of contests to Am-

music to theater and iournalism.
ln remembrance of past heroes the House erected an
eFFigy of Moses in November which captivated the campus
but not the judges. This forty-foot effigy, along with the
trustees' commemorative grail for academic achievement,
were among the treasures displayed at the huge Williams
Weekend Revival Meeting, traditionally a campus high-

- Following the tradition set by social-minded brothers of
the remote past, the Amherst DU Chapter maintained its po-
sition as party center of Amherst College. Saturday night
. social activity remained at a high level, being supplemented
by special activities including the formal House Dance, the
Christmas Party and the Paiama Party. The latter was a
blazing success, brothers and dates appearing in a motley
variety of weird sleeping costumes. Saturday nights featured
k the DU Tail-gate Five plus Twenty. These jazz groups at-
tracted crowds to the newly decorated downstairs concert
t room. The decoration consisted of one eight-foot electric
X Several improvements were made on the House this year.
The Pledge proiect, so capably carried out by the seniors,
was that of panelling the unfinished part of the bar. This re-
sulted in a significant change for the better. The old cool
furnace was replaced by a modern oil burner which we were
told would keep the House "as warm as toast." The toast
turned out to be cold. Of course some of the brothers cherish
fond memories of the now defunct coal bin which in years
past had provided sundry comforts. A new super-music sys-
tem was installed which now links the numerous high fidelity
installations into one grand, complex system.

J we fd,
The new college year at Kappa Theta began like many
others, but it was destined to have much to make it distinc-
tive. First, several needed improvements were made around
the house. The new parking lot was finally completed, after
much work, under the watchful command of Jon "musical
saw" Helmreich and Red Faissler. And most happily, the bar
and tapping system were renovated by an eager crew of
brothers led by Harve Mierke. The improvements included
all the most modern conveniences, even running water. It was
rumored, furthermore, that the quality of the beer had
improved, somewhat, as a result.
Unable to recruit any orphans forthe traditional Christmas
Party, Kappa Theta decided to adopt a small zoo instead.
The menagerie consisted of one skunk, "Tux," and several
white rats which were left over from the famed Rat Race-
K. T.'s prize-winning Mardi Gras booth. Their presence,
while it lasted, was enioyed by at least five brothers and
Perhaps the fact that many brothers lost their pins this
year, one quite unintentionally, was the most significent fea-
ture of this year's social life. An eighth of a keg after goat,
traditionally donated by one so dishonored, became com-
mon-place. Other highlights were the December Champagne
Party, the spring costume party, and the traditional Prom
Weekend barbecue. These plus the standard variety of

weekend activities kept the boys in high spirits throughout
the year. During the week the "Gards" and his guitar were
always on hand to liven things up.
Academically, Kappa Theta was proud to display the
Treadway Trophy for first place in scholastic achievement.
Some good teams were fielded on the intramural front. They
played hard, and had good times winning or losing.
When the storm of rushing had subsided K.T. found itself
in possession of a fine bunch of freshman recruits that prom-
ised much for the future. All too soon spring vacation was
over, and, gathering again in the house on the hill, some for
the last time, the Kappa Thetans looked toward June. For
seniors it was a busy time, much mid-night oil was burned as
finishing touches were put on theses. With these in, exams
and graduation loomed closer each day. Finally, as the year
ended, the brothers expressed their grateful thanks to Presi-
dent Mike Spero, the other officers and Professor Martin for
their able leadership through the ioys and trials of fraternity
living and their help in making this year one of the most
memorable in Kappa Theta's annals.

When the priesthood, summoned from summer soiourning by
the creaking clangor of chapel bells, reconvened in the
Temple of Pheece and once again prepared libations of
seething blood for the Academic Muse, the heavens smoked,
and miracles were wrought. lctinus Dinkelspiel, over the va-
cations, had supervised the reconstruction of the wallpaper
frescoes in the downstairs hall and stairwell, and the carving
of the friezes in the likeness of the All-Seeing -Eagle on the
walls of the new library. Now the tribe, in an ecstacy of
self-purgation, furiously labored to construct a retaining wall
for the barren earth overlooking the driveway, a new floor
for the nether regions, and a workshop for the idle builders
of idols. The Pongball Sanctorum was burnished once again,
and twenty-five new candidates were given their shields,
the symbols of full brotherhood.

Before the "Fairest College" was officially in session last
fall, Phi Delta Sigma became the third local on the Amherst
campus when all ties with a national fraternity were severed.
This change of status didn't stop the brothers from initiating
twenty new stalwarts and preparing a prize-winning effigy
for Homecoming Weekend. Another task accomplished dur-
ing the fall term was the redecorating of the inside of the
The House of Phi, as always notoriously strong in football,
placed high in the winter activities of basketball, squash, de-
bating and chess. Bruce Havighurst, one of the brand-new
brothers, was the defending college chess champion.
The Phi Delt parties drew a large crowd from the college
community. ln addition to Homecoming Weekend, Prom
Weekend and two house parties, the house held the "3rd
Anyal Soshal Conduct Party" which had as its theme "Guys

The Spring saw many innovations on the 'Hamp Road'. The
outside of the house was painted to finish the renovation
started inside in the fall. The House was relatively deserted
during May as the brothers repaired to Mount Sugar Loaf
for picnics or to the "pit" for the final grind. This grind paid
off, because for the fourth straight year no Phi left school
for "academic reasons."
Led by Bob Shoenberg and Mike Yohn, the Phis were
more enthusiastic and showed more spirit than had been
shown in recent years. This spirit is Phi Delta Sigma's proof
that a local fraternity can exist on equal ground with a
phi gamma lbegfa
ln our college life, one finds that the status quo exists only to
be challenged. For the men of Fiiiland this is especially true:
that "never-to-be-equalled" year gone by is soon to be re-
placed by another. Though a brook tends to flow in the same
direction, it constantly assumes new and different modifica-
tions, be they good or bad. Likewise, the white house on the
hill exists from year to year as an enviable symbol of
fellowship, but with its particular modifications.
The new blood introduced to us last year became an inte-
gral part of an indescribable blend of personalities and
their manifestations. The year got under way early as the
Phi Gam contingent redecorated studies, carefully concealed
Belafonte albums and settled down for the coming school
functions. The agenda for bigger and better things was
periodically unfolded with the cooperation of everyone in-
volved. "Mole" Charlton chauffeured the famous fire engine
to the football games. Not only was the Amherst team sup-
ported with gusto, but the house's active support of, and
participation in intramurals paid valuable dividends.
The social season started with a fire and spirit ignited by
the excellent imagination of Tim Harris. A barbecue, a new
and different Fiii Island Party, and a hay ride followed by
by a buffet dinner highlighted the season. Throughout the

year, however, the clinking of glasses and gaiety of voices
all added to that wonderful spirit of house unity.
For the first time in years the house was the proud keeper
of what might be called a dog, although this is a somewhat
optimistic appellation in light of the animal's refusal to chase
squirrels. At any rate, Shatzie helped transform the word
"house" to the word "home."
The construction of a "pit-like" study in the basement and
the final cataloguing of the books in the house library con-
tributed to scholastic distinction. Erudition was furthered by
lectures given to the house by such men as President Cole
and Professor Commager.
Our "brook" would not have been so favorably modified
had it not been for the excellent guidance provided by
John Webster, Mick Schultz, Rick DeFilippi, Bruce Watson,
and especially Kent Knowles, our president. Pledge training
was thoroughly constructive under the leadership of Ed Gil-

Coming, as the leaves turned, to live, for the first or last time,
at Theta Delta Chi, there were things to remember, not al-
ways what we guessed they would be, new paint in the
front hall, the juniors moving in, and the bugs snug under
rugs after a summer sweeping.
After we grew used to being together again, and while
snow threatened to fall, we were happy about the new
social chairmen, the fine cocktails after football games, and
a Halloween party with smoke in the living room. At Christ-
mas Santa read a poem with everyone in it and established
a new tradition while doubling as the wonderful Wizard of
Grog. We read each others' notes and the seniors told,
daily, how they'd never get their theses done, and even Jun-
iors howled about how hard a winter it would be, but the
bridge game ran from fall through freezing with hardly a
ripple, hardly a snort, and no one was bored finally, and no

understood, though we laughed sometimes and were an-
noyed. Then suddenly we had an excellent pledge class to

Once again, to the chagrin of the departed seniors, the
house managed to survive without their support. Even great-
er heights were reached in this new era, as the iuniors moved
into the house and the pledges of last March became
Most noticeable of the influences of the new era was the
completion of the two-story wing, with its new pong room
and sun deck, which was added to the rear of the house dur-
ing the summer. The forces of the new era were also to be
seen in the repudiotion of the move, made by many tradi-
tionalists, to maintain the time-honored custom of formal
dress at initiation banquets. The forces of moderation and
conservatism fought valiantly for one and a half hours in an
unprecedented Tuesday night filibuster, but were finally
voted down by the less-civilized section of the house.
The winter informal dance and the spring formal, together
with the usual Prom weekend revelry, highlighted the social
year as the brothers disregarded the traditional phrase by
dating the girls from Mount Holyoke almost exclusively and
marrying the girls from . . . time will tell.

House parties, while not wrangling over the ownership of
rugs, reflected strongly the influence of national affairs as
the chapter gave lke a 30-28 majority and fought for hours
over the slogans "Arm Another Arab" and "Go Egypt."
Scholastically the house continued to hold its own, while
in athletics a strong football team and pong team, aided by
equally strong teams in other sports, got the house ot? to an
usually impressive start.
A visit from Zeke, our national president, the traditional
exam cramming, and cooking in the bar during vacations
were also part of the year's events. Brothers laid claim to
new records for continuous hours ot pit-dwelling and the
length of long-distance phone calls to South Hadley.
Then came the second set of finals, and with the reminis-
cent notes of Senior Goat another year ended at the house.
The cry of "Campus!" was silenced until another fall.

Seelye House is the result of the trustees' decision to turn
the former Jeff Club facilities into a social dormitory, a resi-
dence hall under H.M.C. iurisdiction. For those uninitiated in
the ways of Seelye House, it has H.M.C. and A.C.A.A. rep-
resentatives and a house manager, but no formal house
organization. Residence in the "white elephant" of the Am-
herst campus is open to the three upper classes, with pref-
erence going to seniors and independents.
The majority of this year's nineteen "Seelyeites" were
seniors, with a sprinkling of iuniors and sophomores. lt may
be truly said that they embraced all ranges of campus in-
tellectual and social endeavor, the diverse interests of the
group having led to many spirited debates. lndividuality
keynoted the few stormy house meetings for which a quorum
could be gathered. A certain independence of spirit mani-
fested itself at all times on issues ranging from college social
systems to compulsory chapel. Seelye House, "a constructive
alternative to the fraternity system," has seen several inter-
nal improvements. For instance, the basement recreation
room, scene of somewhat fewer social activities than in
years past, assumed a more functional beer can and paper
bag motif. Community spirit was evidenced by the annual
defrosting of the house refrigerator.
Located on quiet Lincoln Avenue at the terminus of a
beaten track across Theta Delt's back yard, Seelye House is
set among wide lawns and tall elms and offers gracious
country living to those willing to undertake the brisk seven
and one half minute walk to Valentine. The space and com-
fort for so few men are unrivalled on campus and the
facilities exceed any to be found in the dormitories.
The bull sessions, the riots in the halls, the requests for
silence as a phonograph is heard warming up, the latest
Buildings and Grounds manifestos on the bulletin board, the
banging of radiators at 5 A.M., incomparable views at
sunset, these are all mementos of life at Seelye House, l957.
The sound of soft iazz issuing from a fourth floor room, the
smell of fresh paint issuing from the same floor, and the sight
of furniture moved into the hall to make room for the painters
all serve as reminders that though life in a freshman dorm
may be pleasant, it is far from settled.
The first unsettling event for the inhabitants of Morrow
occurred in the Morrow-Pratt quad during Orientation week.
The newly-indoctrinated frosh quickly caught the riot spirit
and during the freshman-sophomore "competition" even
turned their talents to their own members and filled Ed
Simms' room to the ceiling with paper.
Three weeks after the beginning of classes Morrow
burned the Union Indian in honor of the first home game of
the season. A little later, freshman sub-council elections were
held and Bob Neil, Jeff Sneider, Dave Purdy, and John Ray
were chosen to represent their floors. Dave Purdy and John
Ray were elected secretary and treasurer, respectively, of
With the organization of the student government of the
dor-m, the way was cleared for entrance into intramurals.
Under the leadership of Charley Johnson, Kirk Platte, and
Toby Fine the Morrowites enjoyed a mediocre season
against strong opposition.
On Saturday of Williams Weekend members of the Col-
lege passing by Morrow on their way to Valentine were
bewildered by a sign on the side of the dorm.This sign could
only be deciphered if the student stood on his head and
read "Beat Williams" in Arabic. That night Morrow enioyed
the most successful of its three dorm dances.
Morrow initiated many proiects, including the organiza-
tion of winter and spring intramural teams and an attempt
to procure better lighting for the Morrow Library. Another
proiect entertained by the Morrowites was the collection of
money to replace the first and only broken window which
resulted from a snowball fight. The occupants of the room?

During the first week of school, James Hall placed flrst in the
race to see which of the freshman dorms could shave the
most sophomores. After this initial brilliant triumph, James
continued with its typical freshman pranks. Shaving cream
and water tights, wastebasket fires, and the defenestration
of mattresses were common occurances throughout the year.
In snowball battles, they beat Stearns every time, and still
held the title of "champions of corridor football."
Jam sessions were held down in the recreation room by
the boys from the second floor who formed a little Dixie
Band lminus a clarinetl for their own amusement. Amherst's
"School of Hypnosis" was located in room 209, and an
official literary clerk, employed to write letters to Smithies,
also had his office on the second floor.
The best lock-picker on campus was a resident of the
third fioor, which was the tioor that caused some annoyance
with its "golf course" and water hose. A direct line to Chapin
House at Smith was the pride of the fourth floor.
Proctors Tom Taylor and Uncle Geoffrey Shepherd kept
things quiet on the first floor. This floor, however, claimed the
only man on campus who walked to Mount Holyoke and
Everyone in the dorm was an avid Elvis Presley fan, al-
though the first floor occasionally listened to some classical
music ldue to the proctors' influencel. During the holiday
season, James was the only dorm to be decorated with
bright red Christmas lights.
Elsewhere, James elected to the Sub-council Hank Neale
Dave Wood, Dave Mace, and Bill Forgie, who became its
president. John McKenna organized the dorm's intramural
teams which were fairly strong during the winter season.
James won second place for their Coast Guard effigy on
Parents' Weekend. On Homecoming weekend they gave a
party with "blue lights and a iazz band." The February
skating party was the highlight of the winter season.
When semester marks were sent to the parents, some of
the freshman in James confided that they wished they had
spent "a little less time in shaving cream fights and a little
more time on Physics," but nearly everyone pulled through,
rushing notwithstanding, and will return to tackle American
Studies and Evolution with, perhaps, a little more than water.

Very early In the year Stearns showed an amazing ability
to organize. The freshman rioters from Stearns led and co-
ordinated very successful attacks on the Pratt stronghold.
This characteristic of active cooperation and spirit was the
by-word for Stearns in its success on the freshman scene.
The Stearnsmen carried off a successful Dorm Mixer with
Mount Holyoke in spite of a full-scale invasion by Yale,
Dartmouth, and miscellaneous prep schools. Success at social
functions continued at the Rally-Dorm Dance held by Stearns
over the big Williams Weekend. The dance was typically
well-run, and well-attended. The pep rally was an even
greater success. More than 25 men worked on the huge
football-player effigy that copped for Stearns the first
prize of a keg of beer.
The four Sub-Council representatives deserve a lot of
credit for their coordination of the freshman effort. Brian
Beer, John Bookwalter, Larry Church and Bob Jewett were
considerably abetted by the second and third floor "rabble-
The dorm proctors, Tom Cody and Bob Masson, channeled
and guided the frosh. Their readiness to discuss and advise
on all sorts of problems was sincerely appreciated.
Stearnsmen were seen in almost all forms of freshman
athletics. A particularly large number of football players
resided in the dorm. Stearns also contributed men to the
Glee Club and the Chapel Choir. One freshman made a
singing post with the Zumbyes, and another an arranging
Stearns' participation in intramural athletics shows per
hops best the impact of the dorm's spirit and cooperation.
The managerships of Gery Schedler and Tim Barnes pro-
duced several more than adequate teams, but Stearns'
fortes were basketball and ping-pong. The traditionally
weak frosh placed number one in their league and second
in the school in ping-pong, as well as fielding a team which
handed many shocking defeats to strong fraternity teams.

The House Management Committee was very much in the
news during the past year. This controversial group took
several important actions as part of its duties of governing
the fraternities. But, despite some serious disciplinary prob-
lems, the fraternities generally assumed more self-responsi-
bility without the "help" of the HMC.
Probably most important were the changes in the rushing
rules. The rushing period was cut to eighteen days, the pref-
erential card system was modified to enable freshmen to
leave for the vacation earlier and the freshmen dorms were
closed full-time to upperclassmen after the beginning of the
second semester. The pledge period was changed back to
the beginning of the sophomore year.
Representing a cross section of campus opinion, the HMC
is always composed of one graduate and one undergrad-
uate representative from each fraternity. The present Grad-
uate Chairman is George E. Keith '27, who calls the full
committee in session several times each year. The under-
g ga e, son econd row: Dinces, Goddard, Yale, Havighurst, Patterson, Parker,
graduate group, this year under Chairman Don Nightingale
'57 and Secretary Bob Shoenberg '57, meets each week
during the school year.
The Committee, charged by the Board of Trustees with
several general duties with regard to fraternity govern-
ment, took several steps in addition to the changes in rushing
rules. Funds were appropriated from house fines levied dur-
ing the year to be donated to the new tutorial system, and
to the library for the purchase of current fiction. The faculty
adviser system was maintained. Also, the graduate and
undergraduate chairmen both served on the Trustee's com-
mittee for reassessing the role of fraternities at Amherst.
Finally the HMC worked out a new plan for fall pledging to
replace the experiment of spring pledging. With these and
the usual round of policeman-like activities, the Committee
had a busy year and on the whole operated efficiently and

Acting as the expression of the student body,
the '56-'57 Student Council, under the re-
markably excellent leadership of President
Bruce Hanson, continued its integral role as
the center of student government on the Am-
herst campus. ln this connection it functioned
as a sounding board for student opinion, as,
for example, in representing student opinion
concerning the abolition of the spring athletic
trips. lt also considered, and in some cases in-
stigated, changes desired by the student
body, as in the expanding of social facilities
for the freshmen. As in previous years the
Council awarded the winners of the Tread-
way Trophy and the Intramural Trophy the
first two choices in the allotment of tickets for
the homecoming football game.
On a more legislative level the Council
supervised the use of the student tax money
in the budgets of student organizations. This
year the Glee Club was also made a recipi-
ent of student tax money and was authorized
an initial tax grant to eliminate the problem
of trying to operate without a predetermined
income. The immediate results were that Glee
Club members no longer had to pay the high
dues and that the organization was able to
sing more on campus. Also in this area of su-
pervision, the Student was granted the mon-
ey necessary to publish the course critique
booklets. This proiect, which hoped to prove
a real contribution to the Amherst community
by aiding the student in the selection of his
courses, was ultimately abandoned for future
years due to prohibitive cost and limited use.
Included also in the legislative powers of
the Council over student activity is the ap-
proval of changes in the structure of the stu-
dent organizations and the approval of new
organizations. Significant action in this regard
was taken in the approval of a new plan for
the reorganization of the Ol.lO staff and a

general review of the role that the Junior Ex-
ecutive Boards should play in all campus or-
ganizations. This action reflects the growing
sentiment of the undergraduate to relieve the
burden of these activities from the Senior
Board members who are, in increasing num-
bers, involved in honors work.
Characteristic of the Student Council as
representative of the undergraduate body is
its positive response to student activity and
interest. This was demonstrated in the Coun-
cil's formulation and supervision of the advi-
sory referendum on the Amherst social system,
the most publicized activity of the Council
this year. The initiative of the '56-'57 Council
has also found expression in the Council's
dissemination of information that is of inter-
est to the student, such as a review of the
armed service programs available to Am-
herst students. Again this year Council pub-
lished a booklet on fraternity rushing de-
signed particularly for the freshmen.
One of the most important functions of the
Council is acting as a liaison among the stu-
dent body, the faculty, and the administra-
tion. ln this respect it worked with Dean Porter
and Professor McKeon in the publicizing and
defining of the penalties of library offenses,
lin particular the loss of one credit hourl, in
an attempt to inform the student at which
point the various penalties apply.
These are only a very few of the particular
accomplishments of this body and conse-
quently do not represent the scope of its
work, which virtually affects each individual
on the Amherst campus. This year's Student
Council has achieved with a high degree of
success its aims in representing the under-
graduate body and, moreover, has estab-
lished new heights of achievement and lead-
ership as an example for future Student

Scarab, often billed as the group which does "the usual
thing in the usual place at the usual time," this year did some
unusual things. Under President D. Bruce Hanson, the mem-
bers of the senior honorary society took an active part in
two new proiects. Individual reports on the fraternity situa-
tion were drawn up and submitted to the Trustees' committee
on fraternities at Amherst. Also under consideration were
several proposals for more fraternity participation in civic
proiects in the area.
Scarab, founded in l905, is made up of those seniors
who are "most representative of the best that typifies Am-
herst men." Undergraduate activities and service to the
College are foremost considerations. Each year the out-
going members choose their successors who seek to pre-
serve college traditions and work for friendly relations with

This year, as in the past, Sphinx played a directing role in
the freshman orientation program. They assisted the dorm
proctors in advising the freshmen. ln this advisory capacity,
they tried to help freshmen solve their own problems and to
get them to "do things for themselves." This year the inter-
class rivalry included the usual freshman-sophomore head-
shaving, although no rope-pull was held.

Phi Beta Kappa was founded at William and Mary in 1776.
It has evolved from a fraternity with social eligibility re-
quirements to its present status as an honorary society. The
Amherst Chapter, founded in 1853, is Massachusetts Beta,
one of the oldest in existence.
The general function of the organization is that of recog-
nizing and encouraging scholastic endeavor and attainment
among college men. Selection to Phi Bete is made solely by
undergraduate members and is based on academic a-
Eligibility for election to Phi Beta Kappa iunior year re-
quires an over-all college average of 90. Those students
who graduate with a College average of 86 or above, and
who receive either a magna cum laude or summa cum laude
degree, are also eligible.
Graduate officers this year were Prof. Anthony Scenna,
president, Mr. Myron Gilmore, vice-president, and Prof.
Murray Peppard, secretary-treasurer. Acting as under-
graduate officers were Robert Stra-nd, president, and
Richard Wasserstrom, secretary-treasurer.

The Amherst Debate Council, solely a student
organization, has this year been engaged in
three maior areas of activity.
First of all, the Council participated in
intercollegiate debates. The team travelled
to New York, Boston and Pittsburgh to de-
bate on the national topic: "Resolved, that
the United States should discontinue all direct
economic aid to foreign countries." In addi-
tion to these big tournaments, a number of
single debates with other New England col-
leges were held.
Secondly, the Council sponsored the an-
nual Amherst lnvitational Tournament. This
competition involved a great deal of organ-
ization, including program planning, the
processing of thirty or more college regis-
trations, and the assigning of rooms and
Finally, the Council managed the College's
Intramural Debate Competition. Hopefully, it
served to increase interest in debating with
its timely campus topic, the pros and cons of
"An Honor System at Amherst College."
The Amherst Chapter of Delta Sigma Rho,
the national honorary oratory society, was
founded in l9l 3. The duty of the society is
to uphold high standards of elocution on the
Amherst campus. Members are chosen once
a year on the basis of their activity and suc-
cess as debaters and public speakers, and
they must be upperclassmen in the top 35
per cent of their respective classes.
During the past year, this society operated
under the leadership of Arne Johnson '57,

The purpose of the newly formed Student
Committee to the Faculty is to create a strong
liaison between the Faculty and the student
body on curricular matters, and to make
available a channel for expressing opinion
on matters of concern. Among its concerns
were the supervision of an expanding tutorial
system, advice to the STUDENT on Course Cri-
tiques, and the investigation, along with Stu-
dent Council, of an Honor System and un-
proctored exams. The group discussed
changes in language requirements and the
instigation of special reading courses for rite
The Student Committee is composed of the
three class presidents, plus one man picked
by each of them, two men from the Freshman
Council, and one from the Student Council.
Under the direction of Chairman Robert
Ward, Secretary Warren Hollinshead, Sheri-
dan Johns, Daniel Feldman, John Zinner, Paul
Dodyk, David Mace, and John Raye, the
committee has proven itself to be a necessary
and welcome addition for better and closer
relations with the Faculty.

With a growing number of Amherst gradu-
ates entering law school, the Harlan Fiske
Stone Law Society performs an increasingly
important service on the Amherst campus. The
purposes of the Society are to bring to those
undergraduates interested in law a greater
understanding of the legal profession and to
provide them with an opportunity to meet
with representatives of the leading law
In the fall, the society sponsored a series of
forums on the more significant branches of
law and a lecture by Alpheus Thomas Mason,
professor of political science at Princeton
University, entitled "Amherst's Legacy to
Harlan Fiske Stone." In accordance with the
second part of its two-fold purpose, the soci-
ety made it possible for interested iuniors
and seniors to meet with representatives of
many law schools, including Harvard, Yale
and Columbia. The highlight of the year's
activity occurred in the spring, when the soci-
ety was privileged to present a lecture by the
Honorable Earl S. Warren, Chief Justice of
the United States Supreme Court.
The officers of the Harlan Fiske Stone Law
Society this year were Professor Beniamen

Although its disciplinary actions are most
widely known, the Amherst College Automo-
bile Association serves as the means to pro-
mote safe driving on the campus and in the
vicinity, as well as the agency for the distri-
bution of student driving permission.
This past year, the ACAA continued to rep-
resent students in their annual attempt to
secure better campus parking rules and lower
scholastic requirements for the possession of
motor vehicles. Special permission to drive on
College premises was extended to a few
sophomores and freshmen-the most notable
example being an enterprising parking con-

fraternities and Seelye House, the Amherst
College Automobile Association met every
week under the leadership of Sandy Rose.
lts other officers were Secretary Steve Kind,
and Executive Council members John Benning,
Bob Goutell, and Bob Walton.
Closely cooperating with the Dean and
Campus Police throughout the academic
year, the ACAA had a successful i956-57
season, and requests all students not to park
in front of the chapel during office hours.
The able editors behind the news.
The presidential election, the fraternity referendum, discrimination in fra-
ternities, the honor system-89 years have seen a great change in the
content of The Amherst Student and its influence on campus life.
In 1868, when it was founded by eight enterprising iuniors, the Student
consisted of two columns on a single sheet of paper: the first column con-
tained an effort at poetry by one of the students, the second was devoted
to an editorial explaining the need for the paper.
Today's Amherst Student performs numerous functions. Its competent,
factual reporting provides a chronicle of events on the Amherst campus. Its
new stories and fedtures inform the students about the school and what is
happening on campus. Its features and editorials reflect, mold, and initiate
student opinion on a variety of issues.
The year 1956-57 saw many changes for The Student. Perhaps the
greatest one was the feature and editorial coverage of national and inter-
national issues. This break with long-standing tradition initiated many
rousing discussions on the campus about such topics as presi-
dential candidates, the Arabs, and Richard Nixon.
Instead of being merely a sounding board for student '

"Movie Views" was probably the most-read column of the
paper. Authors Dick Pollack and Lou Eastman "sacrificed"vaI-
uable study time for movies in a prodigious effort to review
nearly every movie that came to Amherst.
Revealing names in incriminating stories was another
policy adopted this year. There was much bitter discussion
on this point as The Student moved to step out of the realm
of "coy, patty-cake style, high school journalism." The new
policy still holds.
The banquet before midyear finals had as speaker
Alfred Friendly, editor of the Washington Post and Times
Herald. That evening chairman Geoffrey Shepherd and
managing editor Alan Schechter passed their Iaurels and
worries to John Zinner and Dave l.uria respectively to guide
the Student through 1957.

The demise of Barsie's Boys Club and the fading memory
of the "Amust" Decency League were mourned by many.
But tradition did not die, as the paper gave headline pub-
licity to the annual P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.
The greatest extracurricular activity of the paper this year
was the publication in November of the Course Critiques.

The word "olio" comes from the Latin word "alla" meaning
"pot" or "dish," and it has come to mean a mixture, hodge-
podge, or any miscellaneous collection. Undoubtedly it was
originally chosen for the yearbook title because the new
publication was to contain a variety of learned articles on
the literary and scholarly matters that were the only con-
cerns of the new college. Today, one hundred and three
years later, the word is still applicable, but now more in the
sense of a "hodgepodge" The l957 OLIO is an attempt
to convey through color and black and white the many and
often disiunct impressions we take from Amherst. From a
perhaps irreverent sense of history, through an obscure feel-
ing of the present fi.e., mud, finals, bargroups, et al.l, to a
more hopeful prospectus of the future as seen in the Class of
l957, we present our version of the ideal hodgepodge
that is our undergraduate life.

An unusual and especially talented "miscellaneous collec-
tion" of people, we feel, all contributed to make this hodge-
podge possible. Although the "brownies" often felt lost in
the morass of disorganization which the editors blamed upon
them, somehow all was thrown into the "pot" and a year-
book did emerge. We would, however, particularly like to
thank Chris Horton for his noble art work, and Marc Taylor
and John Demcisak for the informal photography. The ad-
vice and aid of Mr. Roswell Farnham of Keller Printing, Inc.,
and Mr. Roy Hult of Hult Studios were also of invaluable

The News Bureau, with Ted Trowbridge and Art Powell as
editors for first and second semesters, is the college outlet
for all scheduled sports events, as well as such related ac-
tivities as athletic awards. Under the supervision of Pete
Schragg, of the Public Relations Office, the Bureau main-
tains connections with the Associated Press and many maior
newspapers by means of teletype, telephone, and a mailing
list. The Bureau operates the press box at all home football
games, announcing and recording a play-by-play descrip-
tion, and is the official statistician for every Amherst football
and basketball game. ln addition, this organization pre-
pares the seasonal brochures for Amherst sports and is
responsible at the end of each academic year for sending
to parents and home-town newspapers a resume of the
activities of every varsity athlete.

This year the strength of the Literary Magazine lay in its
rare and obscure poetry and in the final establishment of
itself as the show-case for the limited student literary prod-
ucts. ln the three thrilling issues, avidly read by every under-
graduate, nestled all kinds of goodies reflecting the "buried
life" of each Amherst student. The Literary Magazine stands
on its own legs, looking to the new writers for its support.
The Freshman Class revealed a great deal, and in their inter-
est in writing have shown daring independence and original-
ity. Next fall Bob Bagg and Cliff Ronan will have shipped
out on their meticulous metaphors, and Business Manager
Tom Herzog will have gone on to bigger and better things.
A few old faces, George Amis, Paul Ackerman and Chick
Patterson, will continue their work for the magazine seeking
out more creations from new, latent talent, and continue in
the paths down which the present board has tirelessly trod.

Capitalizing and improving on last school year's technical
conversion from AM to Educational FM, WAMF found itself
at the end of this year in the enviable position of being an
expanding organization, both in its listening audience and
its diversity of programs. Because of the enthusiastic support
and work of its members, this expansion is increasing into
newer and broader fields, making the station an important
part not only of the College community, but of the surround-

covering this controversial and exciting issue. The two high-
lights of this activity were the Stevenson ambush and the

and received a five minute tape recording with the candi-
date. Associated Press covered the episode on a national
basis, and WAMF found itself on the front pages of news-
papers and in magazines throughout the country. Election
Night '56, a grandiose affair, was performed with true pro-
fessional skill. Local coverage was accomplished by groups
stationed in Springfield, Holyoke, and Amherst. On the
national scene, specialists, by studying the key areas, kept
the audience informed on the latest returns. By the use of
spontaneous Faculty interviews, the latest developments
were discussed in an attempt to trace the local and national
trends. Since no other local station performed this public
service, there was a very large listening audience throughout

The Disc Jockey part of WAMF's activities was improved
upon this year with the addition of new, different, and di-
verse programs ranging from classical to hillbilly. The
increased variety of records was due to new contracts made
with more record companies. Perhaps the best example to
the station's wish to please their listeners was the program
of "Music to Study By," popularly known as "Orgy," which
was presented during the mid-semester exam period for
162 continuous hours.
WAMF this past year has begun two new proiects for the
benefit of its audience. They have taped many of the Col-
lege lectures of interest in the hope of setting up a listening
library for the use of the students. WAMF has also provided

The 1956-57 season opened at Kirby with
an ambitious production of Hendrik lbsen's
naturalistic drama Hedda Gabler ably di-
rected by Jack Sommers, graduate student
in Dramatic Arts. As in all of his domestic
plays, lbsen in Hedda Gabler stresses the
moral dictum that no man should allow con-
vention or tradition to curb his own necessity
for self-expression. In Hedda Gabler, how-
ever, as director Sommers put it, "the latent
power for self-realization is frustrated and
Hedda, driven by her restless and neurotic
sensuality, ravenously destroys life instead of
creating a new dimension for it." An unusually

fine cast of characters was recruited to dra-
matize this dilticult theme. ln the title role
Beverly May was particularly good, and
playing opposite Miss May in the role of
Hedda's somewhat ineffectual husband,
Peter Kline was more than adequate.
In January, a series of one act plays was
produced by the members of Dramatic Arts
79, including The Ile by Eugene O'Neill,
This Property is Condemned by Tennessee
Williams, and an extremely humorous and
modern version of The Cyclops by Euripides,
"liberated" from the Greek by Robert
Bagg. The three plays were directed by

ln contrast to the relatively small cast of
Hedda Gabler, the second maior Masquers
production of the season, Christopher Mar-
Iowe's Doctor Faustus, directed by Edwin
Burr Pettet, involved a huge cast of over fifty
individuals. The title role of Faustus, a man
whose intense desire for knowledge in all
fields eventually results in his eternal ddmna-
tion, was superbly handled by Jack Sommers.
As Mephistophilis, the fallen angel who acts
as Faustus's mentor, Chauncey Howell was
also excellent. The remainder ofthe cast con-
sisted of a fantastically costumed collection
of devils, sins, angels, emperors, knights,
popes, and attendants, who paraded about
an extremely effective set amid flashing
lights, crashing thunder and clouds of smoke.
Replacing the maior spring production were
four plays-two by George Bernard Shaw
and two original, by Robert Bagg and Robert
West. The two Shavian plays were Andro-
cles and the lion directed by Peter Kline,
and Candida directed by Michael Sisk.
Ralph Lee staged Nostia, which concerned
another episode in the Odysseus legend,
while Bob Pickrell supervised the production
of West's adaptation of the swamp scene
from Mackinley Kantor's best-selling novel
The Masquers throw a party.
Who says they need new lights in the library?
ln all of this, Masquers, under the leader-
ship of President J. Harlan "Heap" Underhill,
Vice-President Ralph Lee, and Secretary Bob
Ware functioned as an integral part.
Finally, much credit is due the many people
who worked behind the scenes throughout the
year, particularly Professor Charles E. Rogers
who designed the artistic sets and authentic
costumes, Professor Ralph C. McGoun who
engineered the construction of the sets and
devised the interesting technical eftects, as
well as the Kirby Theater Ladies who made
the costumes. Through their efforts the stand-
ard of excellence that has come to charac-
terize Kirby productions was maintained.
Le The Amherst College Glee Club this year presented a varied
program of seven concerts to local audiences and to the
nation. Directed by Professor Charles W. Ludington, this
oldest campus organization lfounded in l867i met tri-
weekly for rehearsals, and after much effort yielded some
fine performances. Supported for the first time by the stu-
dent tax lin addition to receipts from the long-playing
record "To The Fairest College," made in cooperation with

difficulties with a highly proficient agility, and had a

On March l0th and l5th the Glee Clubs of Amherst and
Mount Holyoke College combined to present the Haydn
Mass in B Flat. After spring vacation the Glee Club traveled
to New York with the Smith girls to present the United Easter
Dawn Service, sponsored by the Protestant Council of New
York, in Radio City Music Hall. 7,000 people and the whole
NBC radio audience listened to works of Bach, Weekles, and
Handel. This last concert, sung to untold millions, in many
ways proved the high spot of the season and of the full four
years which the seniors had under Professor Ludington. The

The highlight of this year's schedule for the Amherst College
Chapel Choir was undoubtedly the Spring Tour, made in
coniunction with the Smith College Singers. With perform-
ances in Worcester, Syracuse, Erie, Cleveland and Columbus,
the Choir received high praise and acclaim for its fine rendi-
tion of l6th century music. Although a Northampton critic's
panegyric that the choir was "seemingly giving back to the
heavens its divinely inspired music," may have been a bit
extreme, it is true that the Amherst College Chapel Choir
has acquired a reputation for consistent excellence.
The voices in the Chapel Choir, chosen from the much
larger membership of the 90-man Amherst College Glee
Club, are limited to 30. Under the direction of Charles W.
Ludington, the Chapel Choir concentrates on the sacred choral
music of the Renaissance and Baroque Periods ll6th and
early l7th centuriesl, drawing from the works of composers
like Allegri, Handl, Paretorius, Palestrina, Victoria and
Aside from the Spring Tour through the Mid-West, this
year's schedule included performances in the Easter Sunday
Evensong Service at St. Thomas Episcopal Church in New
York City and a concert at the Folger Shakespeare Library
Theater in Washington, D.C. As well as leading the four
weekly Chapel Services, the choir put on several other per-
formances at the College. ln October they presented a con-
cert for the New England Renaissance Conference, at
Christmas, the traditional Vespers Service in Johnson Chapel,
and in April, the annual Mead Art Gallery Concert.

The Amherst College Band, under the inspiring leadership of
Director Dr. J. Clement Schuler, and Band President John
Dinkelspiel, has become accepted in the last few years as
a symbol of considerable musical quality and as a valuable
representative of the College. The Band has achieved this
reputation by the introduction of auditions for applicants
and a shift in the type of music played, now concentrating
on more serious music written especially for the band, rather
than on orchestral arrangements. The auditions making the
Band -more selective in its choice of aspiring members has
also raised the musical quality.
George Higgins, Student Director, not only led the enthu-
siastic marching band in three rallies and five football
games, but also directed a highly successful pops concert
on Williams Weekend. Another large audience assembled
for an equally popular concert in College Hall during one
evening of Parents' Weekend. Both of these concerts were
sparked by the spontaneous wit of the two personnel
Directors, George Amis and Harvey Wilcox.
Justbone of the fans.
See? Somebody uses College Hall!
The Band acted as a representative of Amherst College
by donating its services for two Benefit Concerts, one at
Deerfield for the Federation of Churches, and the other at
Greenfield helping to raise funds for Ferrar Memorial Hos-
pital. And the Band performed for U. S. troops stationed in
Bermuda, where a gay life was enioyed by forty-five lucky
musicians during this government sponsored trip.
Another big Spring event was the joint concert with Tufts
University at Medford, Massachusetts. Melvin Springer, the
piano soloist, highlighted the concert with Gershwin's
beautiful Rhapsody in Blue.
And to top all this, a very fine record was released in
December: To The Fairest College, which the band spon-
sored, and on which all the important musical organizations
connected with Amherst College performed. This record,
the Spring Tour, the several Benefit Concerts, and the foot-
ball enthusiasm, all are a tribute to the Band's musical
achievement which assures its popularity and success in the

held for the benefit of foreign students. And,
in a move which will undoubtedly save Col-

A number of years ago, the Glee Club conceived the idea
of a smaller group of its own men who could sing a few
songs in a lighter vein during intermissions. The idea grad-
ually took form and the group, which was called the Double

until 1947, when they decided to branch out on their own.

The informal eight was heard at most of the college social
events and at a number of neighboring colleges in New
England. Further performances were given for the Middle-
bury Winter Carnival and the Providence Alumni group.
Ben Symon's enthusiastic direction continually led the D. Q.
into encores in their renditions of everything from rah-rah
college songs to barbershop quartet numbers.
This marks the second year that "the Amherst College
Double Quartet" recording has been on the market. The
record contains a variety of songs of the ballad type and
songs from the jazz age of the Twenties. As a well-earned
and well-deserved reward to such a fine singing group,
virtually all the records that were cut have been sold in the
course of the year.

i956-57 was a year of expansion and in-
novation for the C.A. Following the annual
planning retreat, each freshman was visited
by two upperclassmen. This gave another
personal touch to the orientation of l96O.
The very active Foreign Student Committee
not only met the foreign students at airport
or station, but found American roommates for
each of them.
Early in November a cash and clothing
drive to aid the Hungarian refugees received
strong faculty and student support. This was
followed by several paper drives to earn
money for various areas of need. These in-
cluded an experimental farm in Georgia
which was boycotted because of its policy of
integration. The Vets Hospital group was
much larger and far more regular in attend-
ance than in preceding years. Deputations
were sent to numerous youth groups in the
area between Athol and Springfield. Work

undiminished frequency and enthusiasm.

from the issues in the political campaign to
religion in T. S. Eliot's poetry. In Novem-

This year marked what is perhaps the high point in the
history ofthe Amherst College Chest Fund, as the initial goal
of S7,000.00, the largest goal ever established, was ex-
ceeded by over Sl,0O0.00. 55,000 in student solicitations
and 53,000 in Mardi Gras receipts are both record Chest
The surplus was directed primarily toward relief of Hun-
garian immigrants, both in this country and in the surrounding
countries to which they fled. ln addition, part of the surplus
was sent to the Save a Child Foundation for the purpose of
supporting a Korean orphan for a year. All of this was un-
dreamed of when the drive was initiated in October, and
here rests the peculiar satisfaction of the Chest Fund Com-
mittee, as well as the much-deserved commendation of the
Student body for its generous contribution.

Finally, it must be mentioned that a particular attempt was
made by this year's Committee to publicize the drive and
its purposes, believing that a student body, aware of the

respond generously. This belief was certainly demonstrated
to be true.

Judging from the extent of membership in the
Outing Club the appeal of the nearby hills
and trails is an ever present lure that gets to
the very heart of the undergraduate's sup-
pressed love of nature. The Club opened its
season with the annual trip to Mr. Monad-
nock, highlighted by the brilliant performance
of the O. C. truck. The success of last year's
"get-acquainted" square dance prompted
the Club to undertake two such mixers this
year, with the added attraction of quantities
of slightly-aged cider and doughnuts. This
promises to be an annual function as attend-
ance far exceeded expectation. A mid-term
skiing trip to Mad River, Vt., came in coniunc-
tion with the continued operation of the Ski
Tow on Tinker Hill by the club. The spring
brought rock climbing and spelunking expe-
ditions, as well as numerous cabin parties
with the Smith and Mount Holyoke outing
clubs. The club, under the leadership of Presi-
dent Jim Mollenhauer '57, and Treasurer
Hayes Lamont '57, once again brought the

Under the direction of Commodore Charles

astic freshmen group, the club has been
drumming up interest and money in order to
complete these plans. A committee formed to
inquire into the possibility of using Quabbin
Reservoir for regattas has met with favorable
results. Since the Reservoir is the best sailing
site in the area, this should be an added at-
traction both for intercollegiate competition
and on-campus support. With the advent of
these innovations, the club should become one
of the primary New England centers for sail-
ing and racing in the next few years.

The i956 edition of the Amherst College football team will
be remembered long for the extremes it encompassed in the
course of an eight game schedule. Five consecutive victories
culminating in the stunning Tufts onset were intermediate in
a season which opened with a ragged loss to Springfield
and climaxed in a surprise setback at the hands of Trinity
and a loss to Williams.
A not too bright future was forecast by the "experts" in
pre-season analysis. The predictions were not without reason
for Coach John Mclaughry started with a squad composed
mostly of sophomores and iuniors. Scrapping his unbalanced
line and option play of last year, he replaced them with a
shifting, balanced line. This "new Look" for the offense re-
sulted in a faster, stronger, and deceptive offense.

Les "Porky" Plumb gets away still another pass in the Springfield game despite the hard rushing of Skip Rideout.
For their opener the Jeffs faced a strong Springfield Col-
lege team. Suffering from poor pass defense and from a
lack of spectator support, the Jeffs were scalped by the
Indians 28 to 7. Junior Marsh McLean, out for varsity foot-
ball for the first time, began to show himself as the surprise
star of the year. Sophomores John Deligeorges and Jack
Close were outstanding.
The following Saturday on Pratt Field the Jeffs rolled
over a much improved Union team. The one minute before
and after halftime when the Jeffs racked up I4 points de-
cided victory in a 40 to 27 contest. With a noticably im-
proved performance from the week before, Tom Gorman
showed himself as possibly the best quarterback Amherst
has seen since Tommy Knight. He and Marsh McLean stole
the show in the backfield while Don Moores cleaned up on

November 3rd is a date that will be long remembered by
Amherst men. On that day Amherst outplayed and upset
mighty Tufts 6 to O in one of the best football encounters
ever to take place on Pratt Field. The tension at Amherst had
been building up for weeks before November 3rd. This
spirit was aptly described in a sports editorial in the STU-
DENT by halfback .lim Connors:
"This week at practice one can sense a quiet kind of de-
termination as the pace is stepped up. Calisthentics are
longer and more rigorous. We stay out on the practice
field iust a little bit longer every day. Everyone seems
to be working harder as the coaches drive us harder."

After an exchange of punts in the first quarter, Stephens
recovered a Tufts fumble on the Tufts 42. He then brought a
climax to the five play TD drive he had started by making
a diving catch of Tom Gorman's bullet pass into the end
zone. Jim Connors was a maior factor in this drive as he was
all afternoon. ln combination with McLean and Close, his 1 20

The next week's Trinity game was a complete reversal of
what we had done against Tufts. A rapidly improving team,
spurred on by a spirited crowd and a goal of upset de-
feated a Jeff squad in the depths of a letdown 31 to 21.

second half we jumped to a 12 to 6 lead, but at 12 points
the Jeffs faltered while the Ephs racked up 21 more points.
Pass interceptions by Marsh McLean and the magical pass-
ing combination of Gorman to Close were of no avail.
A look at the year's statistics shows that McLean led in
rushing, followed by Krumsiek, Tibbetts and Close. All four
averaged over four yards per carry.
Gorman, our passing ace, completed 54 out of 124
passes for 901 yards and 9 touchdowns. Sabin, Close,

A strong nucleus of returning Iettermen, augmented by good
sophomore talent, gave Coach Eli Marsh a strong roster from
which to pick his 1956 soccer team. The potentially strong
squad developed into an excellent team which compiled a
good record of six wins and two losses.
In preparation for an opening game with the defending
NEI league champions, Harvard, the Marshmen developed
into an efficient, well-conditioned team before the start of
the season. But it was an untried team which took the field
against Harvard for the opener, and although outshot and
out-played, the Crimson managed to win the game 3-2 in
the second of two overtimes. Amherst broke into the scoring
column first, but could not capitalize on all of its opportuni-
Cambridge was also the site of the second game as Am-
herst battled MIT, winning a close 2-1 decision. Co-captain
Bob Girvin, who moved up to the forward wall to fill in for
iniured Dave Ford, played an outstanding game, netting
one goal and assisting All-American Kirk Hall on the other.
Amherst, once having tasted victory, went on a five game
winning streak, collecting 14 goals to their opponents 2.
After MIT the University of Massachusetts fell victim to the
Lord Jeffs in a 2-O shutout. ln quick order came a 6-0 rout of
Tufts. The game broke open after an evenly and well-
played first half, largely due to the excellent condition of
the Purple team. They were able to keep on the pressure
and got five goals in the second half.

Amherst then traveled to Middletown to win the first leg
of the Little Three title by defeating Wesleyan 2-l. ln the
hard-fought game the Cardinals put up an excellent defen-
sive battle. Returning to the home field, Amherst met and
defeated a strong Dartmouth team. The Big Green, fielding
a U.S. Olympic player, was nonetheless easily contained.
Only five times did Dartmouth get good shots at the Jet?
goal, but John Goddard, playing a superb game, reached
his high point by stopping a penalty shot by Olympic ace
At Hartford Amherst met a strong Trinity team. The .letfs
scored first in the hard-fought game, but were unable to
finish off the Trinity team when they had the advantage.
Trinity tied the game late in the second quarter, and in the
third took advantage of the wind and scored again. They
never let up, and the final score was Trinity 4, Amherst l.
With almost a week and a half left, the Marshmen now
concentrated on the final and biggest contest of the season.

On Homecoming day Williams was due at Amherst. Drilling
to correct the mistakes of the Trinity game, shifting the line-
up, and varying the attack, Amherst began to work up to
their best performance of the season. At no time during the
year had the team played to capacity, and it was this
perfect game toward which they were striving.
The first minutes of the Williams game showed the fruits
of that labor as Amherst scored on a nearly perfect fast
break before the two minute mark. Williams tied the game
immediately, and the contest went into the fourth quarter
before Pete Fermald iced the game and the Little Three
championship for Amherst.
Though this year's team was an excellent one, it never
quite lived up to its potential. But with the returning letter-
men, led by Co-captains Peter Fernald and Dave Ford,
Coach Marsh can look for an even better season in his final
year of coaching.

After a slow start, in which the team dropped two of its

fifteen of its next sixteen contests.
Height, rebounding, scoring, reserve strength and de-

New England schools could match the height of the Jeff

ln the NCAA Tournament Amherst's first opponent was
powerful St. Michael's from Vermont. For the first few min-
utes of the contest, the spirited crowd in the Amherst Cage
thought that the Jeffs were headed for victory, but with the
game three minutes and 45 seconds old, the lead was lost
and never regained.
The Jeff defense couldn't stop the accurate outside shoot-
ing of St. Michael's, and the Purple Knights went on to win
No one could say that this loss detracted from the team's
season. The accomplishments of this team, its all-around
excellence, and its outstanding team spirit elevated it to
the unique position of being the best Amherst has yet

This year's hockey team was plagued by a slow start, but
made some fine showings as the season progressed. Junior
Pete Van Dusen, Co-Captain Ed Stringer, and sophomore
Bob Mclean composed the scoring nucleus of the team,
while Co-Captain Bruce Biddle shared honors with McLean
for the most assists.
The season opened with a game on December T5 against
a strong University of Massachusetts team. Van Dusen came
through with Amherst's only goal in the second period, as the
final outcome was 4-l in favor of Massachusetts.
After a long rest over vacation, the team saw action
against a Middlebury powerhouse at Orr Rink. Amherst
was down 2-l at the end of the first period, but the unre-
lenting opponents did not stop until the scoreboard read
Two away games were next on the schedule for the Jeffs,
at Bowdoin and Colby on January l I and 12 respectively.
Bowdoin emerged victor by a score of 4-i, while Colby
overpowered Amherst with 5 goals in the second period
to win 9-3.
The tide turned in the next two games. The Holy Cross
Crusaders bowed lO-2 and New Hampshire succumbed 7-3.
Stringer was high man with three goals against Holy Cross,
while Van Dusen was tops in the New Hampshire game with
the same number.

Williams men are not gentleman.
Scoring attempt goes wide of the nets.
Save by Coleman stops Williams attack.
On February 9 the team traveled up to Williams, where
Chris Crosby netted a goal in the third period to prevent a
shutout by the powerful Ephs. Williams got off to a fast
start with a goal by Poole at 2:09 of the first period, and
the final score was 6-l .
The next five games saw the .leffs easily defeat MIT,
Wesleyan and Hamilton, but bow to Army and Tufts. The
victories were sparked by Van Dusen and Coleman as each
played his finest hockey of the season.
Illustrative of the improvement of the team this year was
its win over the Massachusetts team which had tripped it
up 4-l early in the season. The Jeffs held their opponents
scoreless in the first two periods and scored a 2-l overtime
victory. Amherst ended its season with a defeat from Wil-
liams at Orr Rink. The Ephs rolled to an 8-l victory.
The team next year will miss the fine play of Co-Cap-
tains Bruce Biddle and Ed Stringer, but Coach Richardson is
looking forward to seeing the rest of the squad returning.
This might have been termed a building year, and with
some real power coming up from this year's freshman class,
the prospects for the future are excellent.

The 1957 swimming team, in closing the season with a 5-4-
l record, posted a slight improvement over last year. An in-
and-out season saw Amherst swimming well, but at times not
measuring up to its capabilities. The schedule, however, was
more difficult than in years past.
The Jetfs avenged last year's setback against Brown in
an extremely exciting meet, clinching it in the freestyle re-
lay for a final score of 48-38. Showing excellent form, Bob
Keiter broke the New England record in the 50 yard free-
style and Bill Jones set a new College record for the 200
yard breast stroke.
Bowdoin was their second victory, as the mermen coasted
to a 52-34 triumph on the strength of seven first place
finishes. The third meet saw highly rated Colgate hand
Amherst a 49-37 defeat.
Yale, undoubtedly the most powerful eastern team, dealt
the .leffs a 74-l4 blow at New Haven. ln this meet, Jones,
one of the most promising New England swimmers, broke
the College record in the 200 yard buttertiy.
First row: Coach Dunbar, Jones, Walker, Gideonse, Faissler, Witte, Clapp, Helmreich, Stauber, Greer, Manager Dell. Second row:
Trainer Cooley, McMurray, Co-Captain Thompson, Co-Captain Keiter, Reiners, Savage, Trainer Newport.
A final victory in the free style earned Amherst a tie with
the University of Connecticut. ln the Wesleyan meet, Coach
Dunbar's team pulled out of their slump to defeat the Cardi-
nals by a score of 60-26. The 400 yard medley relay set
a new College record and the 400 yard freestyle relay
closed the meet with a College and pool record.
The Jeffs gained momentum by whipping Trinity 53-31 in
Pratt Pool. The highlight of the match was the New England
record set in the 400 yard freestyle relay. Higgins, Thomp-
son, Gideonse, and Keiter combined to complete this event
in the spectacular time of 3:30.7.
Slowed down momentarily by a strong Dartmouth team,
the Jeffs then met their traditional rival, Williams. ln a
fiercely fought duel at Lasell Pool, the Ephs squeezed out a
45-41 victory. ln spite of this loss, the squad performed
well, exceeding expectations in many of the events. Keiter
set a new college, pool, and New England record in the
50 yard freestyle with a time of 22.2 seconds.

Secret of a fast relay.
Amherst wound up the season with a 56-29 victory over
the University of Massachusetts, setting a college record
for the 400 yard medley relay in the process.
After the regular season was over Amherst's swimming
team was outpointed 62-57 by their arch rival Williams as
the Ephs successfully defended their New England team
title. Bob Keiter established a New England meet record in
the 50 yard freestyle with his winning time of 22.3. ln the
NCAA meet at Chapel Hill, N. C., Keiter took the national
championship, turning in a 22.1 time.
Reviewing the season, Coach Dunbar felt that, even under
their most difficult schedule, the team had performed well.
Although some will be graduating, next year's squad ought
to be a better-balanced team and expectations are high.

lnexperience and lack of manpower proved to be insur-
mountable obstacles as the Jeff matmen ended a winless
'57 season, O-1-6. Hampered by a succession of forfeits,
the predominantly underclass grapplers were at a disad-
vantage throughout the entire season. Individual excellence
and willingness to fight, however, overshadowed the decep-
tive record as Bobby Thompson and Dick Danielson both
turned in undefeated seasons.
ln the opener against Harvard, Thompson and Danielson,
the only returning lettermen, both scored impressive victories,
but the rest of the sophomore-studded team was unable to
conquer their Crimson opponents. Spence Bloch showed
great promise in the 137 pound division, managing to stave
off a pinning, but dropping the decision. Both Amherst and
Harvard had to forfeit an event, but the Crimson drove
ahead to defeat the Jeffs by a score of 23-11.
Forfeits in the 177 and unlimited classes again proved to
be the margin of victory as the Jeff matmen met their third
defeat against Tufts, 16-12. Thompson continued as the
team's strong man with a second-period pin of his opponent.
Danielson, at 130 pounds, was again victorious, and Bloch
was impressive as he pinned Simpson of Tufts in 4:00.
ln the next match, Wesleyan, taking advantage of the
Jeff's lack of manpower in the upperweight classes, recorded
a hard-won victory 19-10. Dick Danielson, winning his fourth
straight match, succeeded in pinning his opponent in the sec-
ond period. Bloch and Thompson again scored clean sweeps,
but Davies of the Cardinals, New England Champion,
pinned Dick Burton, leaving it to his teammates to cop the
next four bouts.
The Coast Guard then played host to the Jeffs. The two
teams were evenly matched until Amherst had to forfeit the
167 pound unlimited events, leaving the Cadets to score a
17-9 victory. Danielson and Thompson were again victor-
ious over their opponents, and Jack Edwards, a sophomore,
exercised complete control, scoring a 7-4 win in the 137
Grueling practices pay off in a pin.

Jacobson and Bloch: the winner wrestles Saturday.
The next stop for the Jeff wrestlers was Williamstown where
the matmen, although spurred on by the victories of Thomp-
son and Danielson, were defeated by the Ephs, 19-6. Both
Danielson and Dick Burton were iniured in thissmeet, causing
a maior shift in the Jeff lineup and hurting Danielson's
chances of being top-seeded in the NEl's.
Paced by some frantic but effective scrambling by Dick
Flock in the final heavyweight match, Coach Ben McCabe's
grapplers pulled out a 13-13 tie against Dartmouth in their
next meet. Pete Jacobson made his varsity debut for the
Jeffs in a very convincing style, clinching his victory with a
quick reversal. Spence Bloch won an easy decision, and
Dennis Jim rallied strongly in the third period to gain a tie.
ln their final meet, the Amherst matmen encountered in
Springfield one of the outstanding teams in New England.
Bobby Thompson pinned his opponent, and Jack Edwards,
replacing the iniured Danielson, controlled his man all the
way to cop a 5-4 decision. The rest of the Jeff squad, how-
ever, encountering too many experienced players, suffered
defeat, the final score being 22-6.
Although the squad suffered a winless season, Coach Mc-
Cabe feels that "in wrestling, a team's record does not tell
the whole story. The individual performance and sacrifice
of this year's team was amazing." With most of this year's
team returning, Amherst will have experienced men on the
mats, and, aided by some very promising frosh, the Jeff
grapplers will be a team to watch next year.

Even though led by Captain Bub Dillon, who captured nine
matches out of eleven, the varsity squash team was able to
compile only a mediocre four and seven record for the cam-
paign. A lack of depth and experience hurt the team all
The squad opened the season by playing host to Yale, but

The Admirals brought in a team laden with nationally ranked
players and had no difficulty in triumphing over the Jetfs.
The powerhouses of Army and Harvard also proved too
much for the racketman.
Nevertheless, the squad rebounded to defeat both Pitts-
burgh and Trinity handily. The Pittsburgh match saw sopho-
mores Tony Hazen, Skip Vonckx and Tom Richardson post
their first varsity wins. The weak Trinity outfit could offer
but token resistance.
The Jeffs ended the season by winning two of their last five
contests. Wesleyan and MIT became the third and fourth
victims of the year, but perennially strong Princeton, Dart-
mouth and Williams coasted to one-sided victories. The
only saving grace of the Williams encounter was Dillon's
five game victory over Oliver Stafford, third-ranked
collegian in the country.
In post-season play sixth-seeded Dillon got to the quarter-
finals of the National Intercollegiate Squash Tournament
before being beaten by top-seeded Ben Heckscher of
Harvard. Amherst's other two entrants, Skip Vonckx and
Bill Lane, also came back empty-handed.
Although the squad loses Bub Dillon and Sandy Gadsby
through graduation, Coach Campney hopes for continued
improvement from his sophomores to strengthen the team for
the coming season.

The Amherst Ski Team is a member of the New England
Intercollegiate Ski Conference which numbers twelve teams,
among them AIC, Boston College, BU, Brown, Holy Cross,
Keene Teachers, M.l.T., New England College, Northeastern,
Princeton, and Tufts. Within this conference Amherst com-
petes in six scheduled meets, five of which count toward a
conference trophy awarded to the college with the highest
cumulative point score.
This year's team has probably the greatest potential
which Amherst has had in many years. The squad's strength
lies in its depth, since Co-Captains Bob Homer and Dick
Vitzthum, the stronger members of the team, are backed up
by four men vying closely in ability, who are able to finish
consistently among the first 20 in a field of 60 to 70 com-
Racing downhill with Rotner.
Jim Finn in the Olympic tradition.
ln the season's first conference meet, the Asa Osborn
Trophy Giant Slalom, held at Bridgeton, Maine, Amherst
placed fourth. Bob Homer took fourth place with a time of
46.3. Laurie Ullman, Pete Fernald and Dick Vitzthum placed
thirteenth, nineteenth and twenty-first respectively, all with
times which were within lO seconds of Homer's. At this
meet Gordie Edwards won first place in B division com-
Coach Rostas' men placed a very close third behind Tufts
and M.l.T. at the Tufts Challenge Trophy at Laconia, N, H.
Tufts managed to edge out the Jeffs by less than one second
in the total times of their four skiers. Homer took third place,
Howie Rotner, twelfth, Vitzthum, sixteenth, and Fernald,
nineteenth for Amherst. ln this meet Rotner's scoring was
especially valuable in helping the team place.

fine showing and would have placed first in its league except

Winning four out of five of its games, this year's freshman
football team, coached by Ben McCabe and Red Richard-
son, turned in a fine record.
The team began its season by coming from behind to
defeat a practiced Andover team. Subsequently, Cheshire
and the Wesleyan freshmen were beaten handily. Against
a confident Trinity team the Amherst freshmen scored a
comfortable 25 to 7 victory. The only defeat of the season
came at the hands of Williams. Commenting on the loss,
Coach McCabe remarked that despite the disappointing
score he felt that the teams were quite evenly matched.
Coach McCabe also indicated that the spirit and ability
shown by many members of the team during the season
would be a definite addition to the varsity in the next few
years. Among the team's most valuable players were Co-
Captain Al Wentzel on the line and Terry Farina, Bill
Vickers, Bob Leach, and Bob Weiser in the backfield.

sparked the iunior boaters in their victorious season. Al-
though the team started off slowly, with the exception of
the Wesleyan game, it picked up momentum throughout the
season and increased its scoring ability considerably a-
gainst the more powerful teams of Williams and Trinity.
Led by Captain Robert Powell, the team scored 18 goals
in five games while conceding only six to its opponents.
Pieter van den Toorn led the scoring with seven goals.

Running on a re-routed cross-country course necessitated by
the building of Merrill Court, Tom Shumaker, Steve Storey,

perennially powerful Deerfield team and a surprisingly
strong Wesleyan squad, the young harriers came back to

appointing season was annulled by a full-scale team effort
in the Jeff's upset victory over Williams.

to Coach Hank Dunbar, was the great improvement shown
by all members of the team, especially Sandy Smith and

The undermanned freshman matmen sultered a disappoint-
ing season, but showed promise of making valuable con-
tributions to next year's varsity. Lack of competitors in the
123-pound and heavyweight classes resulted in forfeits at
these weights and put extra pressure on the rest of the
team. Losses to Williams, Wesleyan and Mount Hermon
comprised the season. However, the Little Jef? matmen
turned in lil points in the Freshman Division of the New
England Invitational Meet. Bob Leach won all of the laurels
in his division by taking each of his three matches.
Outstanding among the grapplers were Leach, who
wrestled at 157 pounds, and Captain Bill Dillon at l47
pounds. These two, along with Keith Rosenn, will be powerful
additions to the varsity next winter. Other members of the
team, who were hampered by inexperience, but who never-
theless performed surprisingly well, were Art Hooton, Sonny
Sonnenschein, Dave Keffer, Henry Neale, Ken Wood, and

giving Amherst a 7-2 victory. ln the Deerfield match a lack
of experienced players in the lower half of the ladder
proved decisive as the team lost 2-7. As the season pro-
gressed, the first-year men showed great improvement, es-
pecially in the Wesleyan and MIT matches which were won
by scores of 9-O and 8-l respectively. With the Little
Three squash title at stake, the freshmen were simply out-
classed by an unusually strong squad from Williamstown,
losing by the score of 8-l.

The Amherst Intramural Athletic Organization was founded
in 1925 and since that time has organized a variety of intra-
mural competitions in which a maiority of the student body
has participated. The high standard of student competition
at Amherst has been valuable to other colleges in forming
similiar institutions. Along with encouraging participation,
the Council is well known for its formation of rules and reg-
ulations, for drawing up schedules, and for securing officials
for various games.
The Intramural Council consists of representatives from I3
fraternities, the dormitories and the faculty of the College.
The Council officially meets three times a year, at the be-
ginning of each sports season.
This year's Intramural Council program had I7 teams com-
peting in 'I6 events. Eleven of these events were athletic,
the others being lnterfraternity Sing, bridge, debating,
chess, and the freshman effigy contest.
In order to allow as many participants as possible, no stu-
dent is allowed to participate in more than one sport in any
one season, this rule enables those participating to become
more adept,thereby increasing the quality of intramural com-
petition. The lntramural Council annually awards trophies to
the winners of different contests. A coveted prize is the
Intramural Trophy given to the organization which has com-
piled the best record throughout the year.

The lntramural System at Amherst is extremely valuable, for
the college gives full recognition to extracurricular activity
and through the Athletic Fund it has obtained the backing
to obtain better equipment.

The Managerial Association, first introduced to the college in 1932, was formed with two
purposes in mind. The first obiective was to evolve and perpetuate a fair and efficient set
of rules by which managers of athletic teams could be chosen. Secondly, the Association
was to organize the managers in order to facilitate smoother operation of the athletic
teams, to work up a competitive spirit for the managerial positions, to raise the interest in
athletics in the college, and to see that visiting teams were welcomed. So successful has this
scheme for taking care of managerial competition been that many schools have inquired
about it and adopted it. Among the schools that have modeled their organizations after
the Amherst Managerial Association are the Universities of Virginia and California.
The Association is composed of the managers and assistant managers in all varsity and
freshman sports and is governed by a three-man executive committee. The officers for the
year were Donald Goldblum, President, Charles Prigge, Vice-President, and Trevor
Managerial competitions, for each ofthe fall, winter,and spring sports, are set up by the
Association. The managers of golf, fencing and track, however, are chosen from members
of the teams.
ln the words of President Donald Goldblum, "The Managerial Association works for
better relations and understanding between the managers and the coaches."
There is always one outstanding men's shop in a community which is noted
for its quality merchandise and popular prices. In Amherst it is the
