It is composed of five members: a Senior President; a Senior Vice President; a Junior Treasurer; a Sophomore Secretary; and a Freshman representative. The purpose of this organization is to govern the women ' s dormitory and to provide for better group living. cavities in the dormitory began this year with the Freshman Initiation and their Talent Show which proved to be a very enjoyable evening. I he Freshmen retaliated later in the year with a wonderful new idea, " Whoopie Nite " . During this evening, fair turn-about play occured by which the Freshmen properly initiated the Seniors. ear, besides the annual Halloween Dance, Turkey Trot, and the Christmas Party, they had an hilarious hayride. It was, to say the least, a wee bit cramped, but no one seemed to mind. months and throughout the Spring found Miller Hall girls clicking fast and furiously the designs of popular socks. - " will always be a memory connected with the women ' s dorm, helpful and truly devoted to " her pirls " is the housemother, Mrs. Ruth Phillips. 1 and advisor is this woman who will never be forgotten by those who know and love her.

Absent from picture Irene Danielson, Vice President; Jane Le Clair, Shirley Betts, Freshman Representatives Remaining loyal to their motto of " serving all well in all ways " , the commuting women could be found doing anything from painting walls, cleaning lockers, and serving coffee and donuts, to sponsoring school wide activities such as the Fall Fashion Show. One of their important functions each year is their joint Christmas party with the CM. A., always a memorable occasion. Every commuting woman is a member of this organization, which forms a large portion of F.T.C. Playing cards, doing homework, listening to the radio, assisting with class work, or just resting are the typical activities in their downstairs lounge. The board endeavors to establish a comfortable atmosphere despite the challenge presented by various renovations. Under the capable leadership of Miss Bolger, the Commuting Women ' s Board strives to satisfy the growing needs of the association. COMMUTING MENS ASSOCIATION Left to Right John Oliva, Treasurer; Arthur Mulrain, President; George Dunne, Vice President Absent from picture Joseph Carlomaqno, Secretary Sponsor Dean Philip McMurray A great percentage of the male students at T.C. are commuters. In order that they may be brought more closely to the activities at the college, a Men ' s Commuters Association is in operation. It numbers 200 in membership. The C.M.A. ' s lunch and game room, with its cards, checkers, radio, and other sources of relaxation, has often been the scene of many a discussion or debate. The important events of this past year have been a lunch for incoming Freshmen, commuters ' picnic, and the famous clam bake. This association is an asset and necessity to our campus because of the activities it sponsors and the gap il tills in the life of the male commuter. . GLEE CLUB One of the most talented organizations on the campus is our Glee Club. Its 60 members are dedicated to the enjoyment and appreciation of Choral Singing. The initial event of the year was .the Mid-Winter concert held in the Herlihy Auditorium on January 14. The April production of " Kittiwake Island " more than justified the months spent in rehearsal. This club well represents the college by its casual singing dates at P.T.A. ' s, clubs, and schools. This year our Glee Club displayed its talents for the Leominster, Fitchburg, St. Bernard ' s, and Athol High Schools under the more than able leadership of its genial director, Mr. Richard Kent.

Truly talented students will long be remembered for all their activities with the Fitchburg Players.

The annual S.C.A. -Newman Club Christmas caroling was well participated in once again. The S.C.A. was host to the school for the Fall Weenie Roast at Cogshall Park, and the winter square dance at which Dr. Brennan served as caller.

PRESIDENT VICE PRESIDENT SECRETARY TREASURER SPONSOR JAMES FOTOPOULOS VIRGINIA CRANDALL DEBORAH ALDEN MURRAY SMITH MR. KOEHLER H JUDAIC CLUB This year marks the introduction of the Judiac Club. This club began in the spring of ' 56 with three important objectives to meet. To promote interest in Jewish religious affairs and Jewish cultural heritage; to serve the interest of the college community in these matters; and to relate the Jewish community in this area to the school, are their aims. Though small in size, this group is bound to increase in membership. Could one of the possible reasons be the delicious Kosher food served at meetings? Vie wish this new group every success in the realization of their objectives. PRESIDENT VICE PRESIDENT REC. SECRETARY CORRES. SEC.

In conference play with a record of six wins, one loss, and one tie, they clinched second place. The loyal support of Dr. Matthew Brennan nas a definite asset to our team. Many of our players from this season are members of the graduating class. Although they ■a ill be greatly missed, there are competent men who vwll step in as first stringers next year. High scorers this year were Tom Kilday and co-captain Walter W ' arriner each with six lis. F.T.C. 1 Rice 1 F.T.C.

Herb coached the J.V. ' s last year, and this year became one of the few student coaches in college circles. Several veteran cagers and a fine crop of newcomers hooped for T.C. this season. The Falcons finished the season with 4 wins and 11 losses. The hoop picture is not as dark as it seems. Though the team did not enjoy the victory column too often, they certainly enjoyed good sportsmanship and gained valuable experience. Captain Bruce Grealey was high scorer with a total of 373 points, and an average of 24.9 points. Bruce, also, deserves recognition for his scoring ability inasmuch as he was the fifth highest scorer in small New England Colleges. The lone senior to be lost is, unfortunately, Captain Grealey. However, the other players feel that they can take up the slack due to the experience they were afforded in playing with him. Bruce scored 3 points in the first Salem game and 33 points in the final Salem game, the last of his college career. Other high scorers were John Oliva with 187 points; Tom Vialsh, with 133; and George Gabriel with 102 points. The Junior Varsity team proved to be an audience filler, perhaps we can assume that one of the reasons was the antics of the J.V. Coach. Jim Nolan, one of our classmates, coached the J.V. ' s onto 6 wins and 8 losses. The fact that they won four out of the last five games tends to prove that they progressed tremendously. Leo Viiler hooped 218 points making him high scorer. Xarren V ' oge scored 116 points and Phil Lancey, 102 points. Xe feci sure that the J.V. ' s have produced many men for next year ' s Varsity. i i 1 .T.C. 46 Worcester 79 1 .T.C. 69 R.I.( .1 . 67 1 .T.C. 61 Keene 75 I .1 . . 68 Lowell 73 1 I . . 8] Westfield 93 1 .T.C 68 Worcester 85 1 . 1 .C.

The major role of the M.A.A. is to organize and supervise an intramural program of sports. This year the M.A.A. sponsored intramural soccer, basketball, softball, and the Freshmen-Sophomore annual rope-pull. Members of this organization include all male students who have fulfilled their Student Government obligation. In past years it has become a tradition to award a trophy to the winner of the softball league.
