This year we have extended ourselves to provide a year-
book that would truly represent our campus. Ferris never
suffers from a shortage of interesting events, and this school
year provided us with an abundance of material to cover.
The completion of the Starr Educational Center, the erec-
tion of the music building, and the new auditorium have
given the Ferris campus a new look of which the students
can rightfully be proud. These were all part of the physical
changes which took place through the year.
Of course the numerous social events have again left
their mark, as have sports and intellectual pursuits. All must
be included, but not in mere record form.
Here, in the i962 Ferriscope, we have attempted to
present the school year in an interesting, abbreviated

It is difficult to express my opinion about the past year
that has seen its trials and tribulations. Many times, as the
deadlines drew near, it seemed almost impossible to collect
the material which was required. But always there was the
friendly voice of a staff member asking, HWhat needs to be
done?," This is what produces a fine book.
In my opinion, it is the same Hfriendly voice" that pro-
duced the finest Ferriscope this College has ever seen. On
the opposite page is a listing of these voices who spent
endless hours of work and they are the ones to be congrat-
Obviously people do not realize the amount of encour-
agement and effort which many faculty and administrative
personnel allot to a publication of this nature. An important
person in this area is Dean Donald Rankin. When ever
something was needed he was always happy to assist in any
way which would help the staff. The academic deans must
be thanked for responding so well to the letters which were
sent out to them asking for material.
And of course, I cannot forget our advisor, Mr. Vaughn
Hoogasian. This man was new to Ferris this fall and prob-
ably didn't realize what he was stepping into. Without his
know how and patient guidance I believe the Ferriscope
would have been in very deep water without a life preserver
or a paddle.
Special consideration must be given to four of this year's
staff members. A person who always seemed to bail me out
of trouble was Jim Camburn. Of course the trouble always
started when we decided to sell ads at J. 8t E's or Whalen's.
Another member of the staff who really put her heart into
this book and even stayed over term break with Jim and
me was Sue Woodard.
Whenever the cry was heard "Hey man, get off my back"
I knew all work would come to a halt because Chuck
Sarlund was arcund. But Charles A. always came through
with the material that was needed.
Whenever the deadlines were depressing I had my sec-
retary to console me that maybe tomorrow would be a
brighter day. Eileen was always there knowing that we
would meet the deadlines.
My last thank you is directed to the College and to the
Student Body for giving me the opportunity of presenting
this book to them.

W. C. ttTop" Taggart . . .
W. C. "Top" Taggart . . .
. . . is
a "believer" in the value of persistent
hard work and determined individual
enterprise. He believes in the worthi-
ness and essential goodness of his
fellowman. His credo "you have to
be only half as smart if you work
twice as hard" is his quippish way
of spelling out the secret of much of
his personal success. His eminent suc-
cesses in the gas and oil industry of
Michigan serve as punctuation marks
for his philosophy of hard work.
"Top" Taggart, as he is affection-
ately known, is a "believer" in his
home town of Big Rapids. His various
acts of helpfulness to fellow citizens
and community betterment-both
known and unknown - stand as
eloquent testimony of this belief in the
town he calls home.
He believes in his Alma Mater-
Ferris Institute, its students, its faculty,
and its leaders. He has given support
to the college as Chairman of the
Board of Trustees when it was in dire
need of an effective leader during
depression days. He has, upon sev-
eral occasions, given financial assist-
ance to the college in many different
ways. His generosity made our
stadium a reality. Talk with him for
five minutes and he will sell you Ferris
Institute all over again.
He is a "believer" because, funda-
mentally, he is a devout man in his
personal life. He is thankful to the
Almighty; his belief in people, values,
and institutions stems from his sense
of personal obligation that man was
made not to live selfishly within him-
Top Taggart has been bestowed
many honors by Ferris and others ap-
preciative groups throughout the
We, as students of Ferris Institute,
would like to express our great ap-
preciation for the incentive he has
given us to be "believers" in what we
do, by dedicating this, the 1962 Fer-
riscope, to a great citizen -W. C.

For the freshman, the first week of college
orientation is a confused beginning with new sur-
roundings, new faces, new rules and regulations,
mass meetings, tests and recreation.
The many meetings consist of a Welcome
Address by President Spathelf, informative meetings
with the academic deans, a reception by the Presi-
dent and faculty members, an All College Student
Government assembly, and an Activities Open
House which acquaints the freshmen with campus
When will it end?

Testing sessions, consisting of English, literature,
math, and general aptitude tests, seemed long and
endless, but were only the beginning of what was
Before registration every freshman had a health
examination which was not as bad as was ex-
pected. Registration began with filling out a multi-
tude of forms and cards. The next step was to
make out a schedule of classes, a long, tedious
process. Having class cards checked and paying
tuition and housing fees brought an end to the
hectic registration day.
Social life was new, but easily adapted to
through the friendly atmosphere in the "Pug", at
dances and shows. During orientation week the
despised red and gold beanies, a campus tradition,
were worn by all the new freshmen.
This first week of a new freshmen's collegiate
career, which is full of memories and newly-made
friends, will be dim in future years to come but
never completely forgotten.

BOARD OF CONTROL
Dedicated to the ideals of opportunity and industry, the Ferris
Institute Board of Control strives to instill every student with c thirst
for knowledge, a desire for personal betterment, and an understand-
ing of our democratic society.
The legislation which made Ferris Institute a state college in
1950 provided for an eight-member Board of Control to oversee the
affairs of the College. The members are appointed by the Governor
and confirmed by the Senate for a term of eight years.
The Administration maintains a close working relationship be-
tween professional educators and a welI-informed group of policy-
making laymen. It is this group of master craftsmen who have guided
Ferris Institute during its dynamic growth.

ABOUT THE DIVISION
The Trade and Industrial Division of Ferris Insti-
tute provides training in a number of areas in the
industrial field which require training beyond high
school but do not require four years of college
preparation. The programs are geared to train a
person in specific areas. Training in these areas
includes both the theory and shop experience neces-
sary to gain occupational competence. The general
objective of these courses are to teach the mastery
of the essential skills and basic facts in each of
the given problems.
It is intended that the students become ac-
quainted with the economic and social problems
which operate in the American economy and with
certain legal provisions, also pertaining to the
great industrial society in which we live. Graduates
from these various programs are constantly in de-
mand by the business world at large, and students
have found it possible to gain considerable se-
curity and comfort through their having completed
training in this division at Ferris Institute.

ABOUT THE LIBRARY
The library of Ferris Institute was formally or-
ganized with a professional librarian in charge in
1937-38. At that time the library, which had been
assembled over the years, was completely re-
cataloged and a new library room was furnished
through the generous support of Frank Johnson, of
Detroit, and other friends.
During the years 1943-46, when the enrollment
was very low, the library was kept in operation by
teachers who worked in the library in addition to
their teaching assignments. A trained librarian was
hired in 1946 and, in September, 1946, the present
librarian and one assistant were hired. At the
present time there are six trained librarians, two
full-time clerks and 12 to 15 student assistants.
The fire of 1950 completely destroyed the
library; but, like the rest of the Institute, it re-
covered to be better than it was before. One week
following the fire the library was located in one of
the converted barracks, and the first order for
books was placed. Townspeople, alumni and
friends gave over $4500 for urgently needed mate-
rials. Since 1950 the collection has grown to over
70,000 volumes of which approximately 48,000 are
books and the remainder is made up of periodicals,
vertical file materials, and college catalogs. Over
600 magazines are currently received.
The library is now housed on the top ftoor of
the West Building with a reading room on the
second ftoor. Additional space plus expanded hold-
ings are the number one current problems of the

creativeness and contribution, and the care of
all campus activities. The Student Government,

several outstanding events of their own such as the Fall Tea, the
Style Show, and their Graduation Banquet where all the wives

Since the inauguration of the Collegiate Chapter of the
American Marketing Association in March, 1958, Ferris
Institute has witnessed the enormous growth and develop-
ment of this organization. Our membership of 110 is the
highest in our four year history and is still growing.
Relations with the Western Michigan Chapter of the
A.M.A. have increased our ability to bring to the campus
intelligent speakers. The 1961-62 program included the
fields of Marketing, Retailing, Salesmanship, and Adver-

Rho Chi is the National Pharmacy Honor Society.
This group started as a local honor society at the University
of Michigan in 1908, and the first national chapters were
formed in 1922. At the present time there are 63 active
chapters in the United States. Beta Mu Chapter of Rho Chi
at Ferris was established in May, 1955.
The purpose of Rho Chi has always been to promote
the advancement of the pharmaceutical sciences and the
profession of pharmacy. Rho Chi also seeks to promote
scholarly fellowship in pharmacy, to increase awareness of
the ethical and social responsibilities of the profession, and
to encourage research in pharmacy.
Each year, Rho Chi presents "Taber's Cyclotpedic Med-
ical Dictionary" to several outstanding members of the
sophomore class. Rho Chi is a ioint sponsor of the annual
National Pharmacy Week Conference, and this year spon-
sored a series of lectures on the various aspects of gradu-
k. . .

The best way to describe the Ski Club is to say
that it is big and busy. Over 150 members made
it the largest organization on campus, and the
excellent skiing conditions made its members some
of the busiest. Every weekend in the season found
its members scattered all over Michigan looking for
bigger and better slopes. As soon as the snow was
sufficient, meetings were held at Birch Hills, six
miles north of the Campus. Reduced rates on the
tow tickets and instructions to club members made
Birch Hills the favorite of many of the skiers.

Receiving Ihird place Greek Sing Trophy.
Sigma Mu Iota was founded on the Ferris campus in the
fall of 1958, with a nucleus of eleven founding fathers.
Each one of these men had the desire and initiative to work
for one common goal: to organize a fraternity. The main
facets of fraternity life they were concerned with were
brotherhood and scholastic achievement.
On January 22, 1961, Sigma Mu Iota became SIGMA
ALPHA MU, the first International Social Fraternity on the
Ferris campus. Since that day, the Sammys have striven to
make their fraternity the very best.
With the winning of the annual Blood Donors Trophy,
along with the sponsorship of the Sammy Shine during the
winter quarter, and the winning of third place in Greek Sing
during Greek Week in the spring quarter, the 1961 school
year came to a glorious end.
The beginning of the new year saw the Sammys filled
with close Fraternal spirit and enthusiasm. These factors
helped them emerge victorious in their sponsorship of this
year's Homecoming Queen, Miss Nancy Strait, of Saginaw,
The men of SIGMA ALPHA MU are proud of their past,
and they are confident that in future years they will continue
to bring honor and credit to the name of SIGMA ALPHA MU
and Ferris Institute.

SIGMA PH! EPSILON VICTORY BELL
Activities for Sigma Phi Epsilon began with the sponsor-
ing of their Thirty-Third Annual Homecoming festivities. Or-
ganizations on the campus and within the town took part
in the activities as they followed the theme for this year's
Homecoming, 'Century of Progress." Following the football
game, the Homecoming Ball was held at the Chieftain Roller
As in past years, the ideals of Sigma Phi Epsilon were
exhibited by the brothers as they took an active part in
the intramural program. These ideals were shown as the
members performed their duties in the various campus offices
The most memorable event during the year, in the minds
of many of the brothers, was the installation ceremony for
the chapter. The installation of the chapter into Sigma Phi
Epsilon National Fraternity climaxed many years of investi-
gation into the merits of a national fraternity. The year was
highlighted by the various activities carried on with other
chapters in the state.

Alpha Phi Beta sorority, organized in December,
1928, is in its 33rd year of existence on the Ferris
campus. Throughout these years, the Betas have
striven to maintain as their purpose the development
of a feeling of responsibility, leadership, co-op-
eration, and democracy among all women students
The Betas started off the year with the annual
Fall Fashion show for freshmen. Following this they
won second place with their Homecoming float and
combined with the Lambs to win the powder puff
Even though another year has come to a close
and some of the Betas bid a final farewell to Ferris,
they will always remember the many formal and
informal events. The sorority can look forward to
many more years of fun, hard work, and happiness.

Delta Zeta Sorority is now on campus.
Spring term, 1961, brought to the Ferris campus a new
organizationeDelta Zeta National Sorority;
The strong bonds of sisterhood of the Sigma Kappa Sigma
Sorority were now tied in with bonds from 133 other chap-
ters of Delta Zeta from all over the country.
Amliating with a national organization hdd been a dream
of the local chapter for two years before it became a
reality. In the spring, though, everything had been com-
pleted. The chapter had been accepted by the President of
the college, and Zeta Ne of Delta Zeta was presented to
the campus at a beautiful tea given by the alumnae of
Grand Rapids with Irene Boughton, National Secretary,
participating in the ceremonies.
The goals have not changed a great dealeto unite the
members in bonds of sincere and lasting friendship, to
stimulate the pursuit of knowledge and to promote the moral
and social culture of the members. We hope to carry these
goals out in a mature manner for the betterment of the

As the yearbook goes to press, Lambda Kappa Sigma
Sorority tbetter known as "Lambs"i is proud to report a very
successful year. As the only professional sorority on the Ferris
campus, members keep doubly busy with both professional
and social activities.
Spring term, 1961, was highlighted for the Lambs by
their placing first in Greek Sing competition. Other memo-
rable events of Greek Week include the Panhellenic Banquet,
at which they celebrated their birthday and were honored
by the presence of their National Grand President; and the
second place trophy from the Greek Track Meet. The end of
an eventful year was climaxed by their Spring Formal,
Returning in the Fall, members were busy with plans for
their Homecoming float and annual Mum Sale. A weekend

word of the year for the Bulldog squad was hustle e the hustle that won

Under the direction of the "Coach of the Year," Jim Wink, the squad
began conditioning early in the fall. In many games the starting five
played the whole 40 minutes without a substitute entering the contest.
Captain Dan Dobroczynski, often referred to as the "floor general,"
was the real playmaker of the team. Many times Dan, instead of shooting,
would pass to a teammate. As Dan said, "I get a bigger thrill out of
throwing a good pass for two points than I would shooting one myself."
Senior Mike Bohnet, in his four years of varsity ball, broke every
school record. Mike, in his last home game, scored 35 points and was
given a standing ovation from a capacity crowd.
Junior Toy Palmer, with his jump shot, was always good for double
figures during a game. Adding the punch when really needed was Fresh-
man Bernard Kilpatrick, who usually controlled the rebounding for the
team. Sophomore Jim Kourtakis, also a playmaker, brought hustle and
spirit to the team.

The season started wth the second annual spring
trip which took the team to Ohio, where they met
only one defeat to Ohio Wesleyan. The team also

The mile relay team, composed of Ken Baxter,
Toy Palmer, Fred Wilburn, and Dick Zaino, went
undefeated all season and set a new Ferris record
of 3224.8. Adding consistent points to the team
every meet were Ken Baxter, Toy Palmer, Frank
Thomas, and Dan Wawersik. The team extended
its dual meet record to 24 consecutive victories.
The real thrill for Coach Bennett came when he
took Frank Thomas and Dan Wawersik to Si0ux
Falls, South Dakota, for the National Track Meet.
Wawersik took a third in the 440 yard hurdles and
a fourth in the 220 yard hurdles, while Thomas was
eliminated in the semi-tinals of the 100 yard dash.
Coach Bennett said, "Having a man place in the
National Meet was the greatest thrill I've had in
my coaching career." ' .

Balancing the Books
The l. D. C. is made up of four omcers from each of the
ten dormitories plus a president elected in the spring from
the previous council.
The I. D. C. vice-president's council coordinates social
activities between dorms. The Committee of Treasurers con-
fers and decides on policies concerning the money of the
dorms. These and all of the Committees report back to the
general council in their regular meetings on every first and
third Wednesday evening in the Student Center.
The lnter-Dorm Council was founded on this campus in
1959. Its purpose is to coordinate activities and promote
cooperation between the dormitories on the Ferris Institute
Campus. The l. D. C. acts as a liaison between dormitories,
the administration, and the All College Student Government.
In the past, the l. D. C. has spent most of its time in
organizational activities. In the future the I. D. C. hopes to
accomplish much more for the dorm residents.

The men of Carlisle Hall, under the responsible leader-
ship of an energetic dormitory council and through a
willingness to sacrifice personal gains for the common goal,
have succeeded in making this past year one of the most
successful in Corlisle's history. The unusually high degrees
of co-operation and interest exhibited on dorm proiects
such as the homecoming display, the dorm mixer dances,
and the winter carnival display have rewarded all with a
deep spirit of brotherhood and fellowship.
Moment of Relaxation
The dormitory council, its officers, and the student
senators, who represent Carlisle Hall in the AII-College Stu-
dent Government, constitute the basic motivating force in
the dormitory. It was through the efforts of these men that
Carlisle Hall was able to achieve the political and social
position it has enioyed throughout this past year.

his participation and leadership in academic and
extra-curricular activities, his citizenship and service
to the school, and his promise of future success.

Every weIl-dressed college student must
have one pair of khakis.
Off Campus Living Is Great
Everyone who lives of? campus makes his bed at least once.
