This is your Reflector, the yearbook of a great institution. The purpose
of this publication is not to glorify itself nor its staff, nor the artists nor the
printers. Rather, it is to set in print and bind within covers your life at
There will be spaces that should have been filled and errors that should
have been found, but imperfection in life is the rule rather than the excep-
tion. The die has been cast: the success of this annual is in your hands.
Memories are like fine instruments, delicate and intricate. lf these mem-
ories can be encased within the pages that follow, and later brought to mind,
the efforts of the staff will have been successful, they will have accom-
plished their task.

The graduating class of 1952 dedicates this Reflector
to Mr. C. A. Mobley, director of the Student Relations De-
partment at General Motors Institute.
"Moe," as he is known to the student body, is the little
man with the curly hair and the big smile who always
seems to be in the middle of every big event. He's made
untold numbers of friends among the students because
of the interest and zeal he puts into his student relations
His singularly noticeable characteristic is that he is per-
petually busy. His office is Grand Central Station on a
small scale, into which file endless lines of students seek-
ing the information, advice, and admonitions he is so
capable and willing to give. The most amazing part about
the man is that he always has the answers.
The athletic program is one of Mr. Mobley's keenest
interests. Through his help, GMI can boast of one of the
most complete intramural sports programs in any college.
Yet "Moe's" ingenuity still hasn't stopped working for the
students. Each new school year provides him with another
opportunity to test new ideas and attempt to give the
students a better activities program.
Mr. Mobley has been director of Student Relations since
1945 when he was transferred from the hydraulics sec-
tion ofthe Machine Shop, where he had worked from the
time he first became associated with GMI in 1930.
For what he has done for the students in the past twenty
years, and for the things he will do in the future, this
Reflector is dedicated to "Moe."
GUY R. COWING-PRESIDENT AND DIRECTOR A" ' T'

Another member of the staff who
retired from duty at the Institute on
June 30, is Mr. Harry E. Briggs, a
member of the Engineering Instruc-
tion department. Mr. Briggs has faith-
fully served the Institute and its stu-
dents since 1936, when he came from
Milwaukee Engineeering School. In his
'I6 years of service, Mr. Briggs has
acquired a reputation for fairness and
cooperation with his students that
could be coveted by any member
of the staff. His students and many
friends send Harry Briggs off to a well
earned rest with all the best wishes
a good man deserves.
Both of these men have been active
outside the Institute. Mr. Giel de-
signed the layout of the Mott Golf
Course, and Mr. Briggs has for some
years been an authority in the field
of model shipbuilding.
GMI is saying good-bye to one of the most widely
known and best liked members of its supervisory staff
this year. The announced retirement in June of Mr.
George Giel, Building Services Supervisor, brought many
misgivings among his "boys," the student part-time
members of the Building Department. Though tales are
told of "George and his copper rod," and the iron hand
with which he performed his functions at the Institute,
it can truthfully be said that one would have to look far
to find a more honest and friendly man. George leaves
with a fine camera, a memento from his "boys", and a
gold watch, an olticial gift of the Institute, in recognition
of his 25 years of service. George is a graduate of Du-
quesne University and Pennsylvania Agricultural School.

Twice this year the school was
honored by the presence of distin-
guished Iooking men in tuxes, wear-
ing large advertisement posters and
silver keys. These were the Robots
of '52, being pledged to that honor-
ary society because of outstanding
extro-curricular activities and scho-
These pledges from the iunior and
senior classes were formally received
into the society at two Robot Balls
during sections AD-4 and BC-4. These
climaxed a week of pledgeship for
the initiates, during which they per-
formed for the student body during
the morning and afternoon break.
Senior members this year were
Bob Garney, Neil Harris, and Don
Sinsabaugh. Senior initiates included
Lloyd DeMause, Helmut Heuser, Har-
lan Koca, George Tozer, Virg Comso,
and Dick Bruner. Juniors receiving
the honor were Walt Hubbard, Dave
Lytle, Al Metzger, Arn Andres, Bob
Bolda, Jim Predmore, and Don Schos-

The Executive Council showed con-
siderable life this year in managing
the altairs of GMTE. The budget 'for
the several councils-Athletic, Social,
and Publications-was carefully scru-
tinized and linally set by the Council,
which ollicially controls the purse-
strings of all GMTE functions. ln addi-
tion, the Executive Council checked
and revised the GMTE constitution.
Further, a poll was conducted to de-
termine student opinion about various
The Executive Council has met reg-

Social, or Publications Councils, with
representatives from each of those
councils, together with their advisors,

Two staunch souls guided publica-
tions this year-chairmen Moot Heuser
and Bob Bolda. Seldom is there to be
found o more unique combination of
pinch-penny shrewdness and careful
management. Not a flaw in a con-
tract nor the slightest oversight of a
publisher was overlooked by the
The year was a red-letter year. The
Publications Council, step-father of
four GMTE publications, published the
Reflector, Technician, Handbook and
Constitution. Out came the Reflector
with size and page-makeup entirely
different. The Technician upped its
pages to six-page issues on occasion.
The GMTE Constitution was revised
and brought up to date after four
years. And the final iob of the Publi-
cations Council will be the school

This year the Athletic Council inaugurated a new system for awarding
keys, arm patches, and medals. This system is intended to be fairer to the
all-round athlete, offering him more recognition than the one-event par-
Investing a large portion of its budget in new equipment, the council
restocked the athletic crib with new equipment and placed the athletic
facilities in top condition.
Again this year, the Athletic Council assisted the Social Council with the
annual school picnics. The council directed the athletic events, which in-
cluded the faculty-student softball game and other contests.
The council chairmen, .lack Baker and Jim Grierson, with the aid of the
other members of the council and student body, carried on a highly success-
ful program for the year.

From Room 47, the Social Council planned and carried out twenty-two
bimonthly mixer dances this season.
The decorations for the dances have been original ideas ot the council
members, and many ot these decorations have been constructed with the
new tools and equipment purchased by the council.
Chairman Neil Harris and Earl Sodeberg led the council in the organiza-
tion of the two maior dances of the year. The J-Prom on June 14, featuring
the music of Frankie Carle, initiated the summer activities. The Grad Ball
ushered out the seniors in ioyous fashion.
The annual school picnic again stirred old rivalry between the faculty
and student softball teams. That game created some huge appetites for
the big spread laid out by the members at the Social Council.

The Reflector passes through many hands before it is finally delivered to
the student body. In the background there is a staff of thirty-six students
who have given freely of their time to produce the best yearbook possible.
There have been long hours of nightly vigil, anxious split-second decisions
to be made, irremediable mistakes to remedy, printer deadlines to meet,
budget funds to maneuver, personalities to blend, and visions and dreams
to bring to life. None is more acutely aware of the taxing demands of such
a great publication venture than the Editor.
Yet it is obvious that the Editor could not have produced such a book him-
self. There were, of course, big jobs as well as little jobs-all of which were
accomplished with equal pride by many individuals.
If every man were to be paid an hourly rate, comparable to his hourly
pay at his local Division, the cost of this book would have been fabulous.
There is no way of reimbursing members of the Reflector Staff other than
the distribution of points to the staff members, all of which may finally add
up to a gold or silver key. To the following, we are especially indebted:
BOB WALKER, aided by JOHN KINNIARD-for the modern bleed-out page layouts.
CHARLIE DABERKOE-for the eye-catching cover design.
BOB WRIGHT, KEITH KELLY, and ROD LANGE for their re-writes and proofreading.
DICK BRADFIELD-for his copy layout and type selections.
KARL KOEHLER, BRUCE WHARRAM, DON GRIMES and BOB SEYBOLD-for handling
the business, sales and distribution.
FRANK WALKER, DICK HAMLIN, and DICK LARKIN-for their picture scheduling.
AL METZGER and WALT COLLINS-for their work as assistant editors.
For their assistance in write-ups, layouts, and typing-
G. MAGOWAN, R. RETSEMA, J. BOND, B. LAFAYETTE, F. TIETGE,
R. SANDERSON, J. JOHNSON, R. YORK, V. KREGER, T. ALDERMAN,
I. STENNER, L. DREWYOR, G. SVIHLA, W. LEEDY, B. LUCAS,
R. DADISMAN, G. DOWNING, J. PATTERSON, J. STEVENSON
ROGER HAMLIN-who guided the publication as faculty advisor.

"The Third Week Wonders" is what the Technician
Staff is sometimes called. Editors Don Schostek in sec-
tion C and Dave lytle in section D lead their brave bands
of newshounds in search of the scoop of the month.
During the third week of each section, Room 147 be-
comes a veritable ocean of activity, as copy flies hither
and yon and the blue pencil of the rewrite staff corrects
and edits the materials for publication. Two or three
stalwarts can usually be found rooting through old ioke
books for suitable filler, while the rest of the stat? occu-
pies itself with other iournalistic endeavors.

Folley and Ray lntrovigne, and directed by Paul Simpson, has had its most
successful year since its inception in 1947.
The band participated in a number of school activities. It played for
the initial GMTE freshmen meetings in the fall, for the championship basket-
ball tinals, and for the special showing of the XP-300 at the Institute. In
addition to this, the band presented a program during National Music Week
on May 9, and provided music for the annual Good Friday assembly.
Each Friday afternoon break during the skiing season, the members of
the Ski Club met to find out the weather conditions for the weekend Und
to arrange transportation for skiing trips.
Several group trips were made during the season, including special
trips for novice skiers. Ski Valley at Waters, Michigan, proved to be The
most popular spot of the many visited.
Movies showing the fun and adventure of skiing highlighted the regllluf
meetings. Instruction on the proper methods of adiusting and caring for
skis was also given at the meetings.
A membership drive is planned for the next skiing season.

The annual Christmas party for underprivileged chil-
dren this year saw twenty-four happy youngsters enioy-

party patterned after the Christmas party.
The event looked forward to by all Alpha Gams, The

Men from twelve chapters and alumni were there for the

Phi Tau Alpha has always been proud of its many
athletic achievements. Again this year, Phi Tau was
awarded the lnterfraternity plaque for winning highest
honors in athletic competition.
The outstanding social event of the year, the alumni
reunion, saw many old grads return to Phi Tau for a
lively week-end. In addition, there were twelve very
successful house parties during the year.
The beauty of the Phi Tau Alpha home on Neome Drive
was enhanced by the construction of a concrete driveway
and parking area, dedicated to the memory of the late
Albert M. St. Germain, first president of Phi Tau.
During the past year, Ed Bevan, who was president
of Phi Tau, was called into the armed forces in Sep-
Twenty-tive new members have been installed by the
fraternity in the past year.

The oldest fraternity on the campus maintained its
standing by staying above average in scholarship as
well as in athletic events.
Socially, White Elephant had monthly house parties
at various locations. There were also breakfasts follow-
ing the J-Prom, the Graduation Ball, and the Sweetheart
Ball. The fraternity had the distinction of having their
candidate for the Sweetheart Ball as reigning queen. In
August, an Alumni Day was held, and old and new
Elephants met to discuss old and new times.
House improvements during the year included tiling
of the bathroom walls, the painting of nearly the entire
house, the building of a food locker, and outside work
on the grounds. A fund was established to repaint the
After informal and formal initiation, a total of four-
teen men became members of White Elephant this last

Bulging at the seams for the past year has been Phi
Sigma Phi. Living space has become crowded, and Phi
Sig has been looking for a new house.
After a two-year absence, the fraternity paper, 'The
Three Point," was again edited by the members of Phi
Sigma Phi. The paper was sent to the alumni of Phi Sig
to keep them abreast of current fraternity activities.
Social events for the year included stag parties and
ioint parties with Phi Tau Alpha and Gamma Mu Tau.
The annual breakfast following the Interfraternity Ball
also was a huge success.
Not satisfied with doing things halfway, Phi Sig
came up with a total of four plaques during the last
year. These plaques represent championships in softball,
basketball, and bowling.
During the past year, Phi Sigma Phi increased its
membership with the initiation of nine new members.

The most notable accomplishment of the smallest
fraternity on the campus, Gilgal, was its capture for the
first time, of the the scholarship plaque.
The accent on scholastics, however, did not slow down
the social pace at Gilgal. Besides the annual breakfasts
after the Sweetheart Ball, the .I-Prom, and the Grad Ball,
a grand-scale Christmas party was held. Regular house
parties served as social accelerators during the year.
The big day of the year was Alumni Day at graduation
time, when the customary "Welcome" sign was hung
over the door, telling of open house at Gilgal. Old
friendships were renewed, good times were discussed,
and farewells were bid to two graduating seniors, .lim
McCarthy and Lou Terhune.
During the year, after informal and formal initiations,
Gilgal took a total of eight men into its ranks.

This year, house improvements were emphasized at
Gamma Mu Tau fraternity. An important addition to the
house was a completely new and modern kitchen along
with a new stove. The recreation lounge was paneled in
knotty pine, adding to that room's beauty.
One of the most successful social events this year was
a ioint party held with one of the other fraternities at
Tech. Other highlights were the Christmas Party and
the breakfasts following the Sweetheart Ball and the
J-Prom. ln August, the Graduation-Commencement Ex-
ercise week-end held the spotlight.
With monthly house parties held to further enliven
the year, the climax was the annual "Senior Dunking
Brawl" or more properly, the Senior Picnic.

traternity Council. Knowing the beneficial results of cooperation among
men, the council goes all out to promote this feeling.

Volume XII General Motors Institute, Flint, Michigan, Friday, October 26, 1951 Number 1
Conference Committee Elected
Chayne Speaks at
Tech Club Dinner
Mr. Charles Chayne, Vice-Presi-
dent of General Motors in charge
of Engineering, was the guest
speaker at the first Tech Club din-
ner of the year. The event was
held in the school cafeteria, Tues-
day of the third week. Mr. Chayne
came into the corporation with the
Buick Division in 1930, after being
a professor of engineering at his
alma mater, Massachusetts In-
stitute of Technology. In 1936
he was made Assistant Chief En-
gineer of Buick and later became
Chief Engineer. Early in 1951
he was elected to his present posi-
tion of Vice-President in charge of
Engineering for the entire cor-
Over 90 members of the Tech
Club heard Mr. Chayne explain
the functions of the new GM Tech-
nical Center and answer a flurry
of questions. Topics of discussion
ranged from the impracticality of
producing a rear-engine passenger
car to the future trends in engine
design and performance. Much
concern was expressed over in-
creasing horsepower ratings in
newer cars, and the probable lim-
its to be reached.. ,
Immediately after the talk, Act-
ing Chairman Dean Waters called
for an election of ofiicers"for Sec-
tion AC. Burck Grosse was voted
to the office of chairman and Roy
Partridge took over as keeper of
the money. Burck is a senior and
C0-ops with Chevrolet Manufactur-
ing of Flint. Roy, who is also a
senior, is sponsored by the New
Departure division of Connecticut.
The Tech Club is a group of
llpperclass students selected by
their co-operating plants or deal-
erships to represent them in the
club. The chief function of the
club is the monthly dinner, at
which an executive of General
Motors is guest speaker.
TOTALS 954 MEN
The opening of the school year
presented a total registration of
954 students in Section AC. This
figure includes the enrollment of
243 new students. The registra-
tion in Section BD is expected to
total an approximately equal
number of men. A breakdown of
the total enrollment figures re-
vealed 599 Engineering, 61 Busi-
ness Administration, and 294
A Many men from foreign lands
have come to study in the school.
There are presently 38 overseas
students enrolled in the Co-oper-
fative Engineering, Business Ad-
ministration, and Dealer programs,
of whom 24 are new students.
GMI now has men who hail from
Australia, Mexico, France, Nether-
lands, South Africa, Cuba, Hon-
duras, Switzerland, and Germany.
Mr. Cowing, President of GMI,
spoke to the freshmen, Monday of
the first week. The new men were
informed of the principles on
which they were chosen, the things
which would be sought from and
expected of them at school, and
what they could look forward to as
students of GMI.

The Conference Committee,
though seldom acclaimed and little
heard of at GMI, nevertheless
serves a very useful purpose at
the Institute. Its main task is to
act as a contact between the GMTE
and the school administration on
questions of policy. It may be
likened to a supreme court in as-
sisting the GMTE Executive Com-
mittee on final decisions. One of
the main functions of the Con-

AS TECH GOES
By LINCOLN MILLER
Presenting Earl Sodeberg
By BLAIR CAPLINGER
One bright morning in April of
1930, the town of Fort Madison,
Iowa, was blessed with an increase
in population of one. For that
morning Earl Wilson Sodeberg
saw the light of day for the first
time. Earl, better known as
"Bud," stayed in Madison until
Have any of you found out
what propels those pyramids of
drawing boards, books, and mut-
terings that meander aimlessly
through the halls? At first I
thought they were ancient Ford
cars-I've heard these cars are
always accompanied by bad wo1'ds.
But after removing two Burgharclts
and an Epic of American Industry,
it appeared to be a lumber mill
that specialized in ZH and 4H logs.
Then it made a weird noise,
"Whereza pencil sharpener?" I
discovered the mystery! They're
Take note, oh Freshies, of the
plight of your brother under the
books.. Don't break a pencil!
You'll be three days behind before
you can get it sharpened.
Just to set the faculty straight,
freshmen mean more cars. And,
since these ambitious little crea-
tures always arrive at school first,
the upper-classmen are forced to
park their cars halfway to Pitts-
burgh. Since their schedule does
for the extra walking
scorned souls arrive at
and one o'clock classes
after the designated
really didn't oversleep!
I've overheard some rather de-
rogatory remarks concerning the
ratio of the boys to the girls at
the latest Tech dances. Be of good
cheer-conditions will soon change.
The Tech students will get dis-
couraged and the girls will become
hopeful. In another two weeks
we'll be back to our old 2 to 1
ratio in favor of Tech. Then some
of us less fortunates may stand a
1938 when he and his family moved
to LaGrange, Ill., where he is now
a permanent resident. After fin-
ishing grade school in LaGrange,
Bud enrolled at Lyons Township
High school where he pursued a
course which was to prepare him
for college. He was graduated in
June of 1948. His thirst for high-
er learning led him to Lyons Junior
College. However, after one year,
be again developed the desire to
better qualify himself for his
place in the world. This desire
caused him to investigate the of-
ferings of "Tech." Finding all
satisfactory, he filed application
for admittance and was accepted
for the fall semester of 1949. Due
to the credits he acquired at Lyons
Junior College, he is now classed
as a Junior II at the Institute.
On entering the Institute, Bud
became very interested in the func-
tions of the GMTE Social Council.
He was rewarded for his first
year's work by receiving a bronze
merit award, an enviable feat for
any freshman. Further interest
in campus social life led him to
Alpha Gamma Upsilon fraternity.
He became a member there at the
end of his first year at "Tech."
More hard work on the Social
Council netted him a silver key for
his second yearg while at the same
time he was holding various ap-
pointive ofiices at Alpha Gam.
However, the pinnacle of his aspir-
ations in the extra-curricular field
was reached this past year when he
was elected to the position of
Social Council Chairman. His one
remaining desire is to join the
"select few" and become a Robot.
Earl's scholastic endeavors have
led him into the Welding Tech-
nology sequence CIE-51, from
which he is to graduate in Febru-
ary of 1953.
Bud's co-operative unit, Electro-
motive Division, LaGrange, Ill., is
firmly behind him in all of his
scholastic and extra-curricular
activities. Thus it is known that
they are happy to claim him as one
of their co-operative students.
by the editor ,,,,
Early in the section, the GMTE sponsored a Freshman smoker for
the joint purpose of acquainting the new students with their upper-
classmen and presenting the various council awards to the outstanding
workers of the past school year. As the freshmen looked about, they saw
their first example of GMI school spirit in full bloom. In the half-
filled auditorium was a mere semblance of a student body-most of
those in attendance were freshmen.
It is indeed a pity that in a school such as this, where the com-
petition is so keen between the various fraternities and the Indepen-
dents, there is practically no unified school spirit.
How many Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors even know that GMI
has an alma mater song, assuming that 99 percent of them could not
sing it if asked? School activities are beginning to degenerate until
they become but a means to an end-the superiority of one faction over
We're not here to prove that ABC House is better than XYZ
House, or than the Independents.
We're here to learn to work as a
team, and the sooner we learn, the sooner we will make this a better
COLLEGE life. Who was it who once said, "A house divided an-ainst
itself cannot stand?"
KNOW YOUR INSTRUCTORS
By LINCOLN MILLER
How many times have you been
at a loss for words to call the um-
pire at a baseball game? GMI has
a man to help you. Victor Zink
is his name and he's in charge of
the speech section of the English
department. As an instructor in
Speech and Conference Discussion,
he helps students and businessmen
to put their ideas into words that
other men can understand and use.
Although originally from Ken-
tucky, Mr. Zink went to high school

Vic considers his job extremely
linteresting because of the variety

The GMIA Independent Organization wound up its 1950-51 school
year with two banquets at the Masonic Temple. Both of these gala
occasions climaxed a year of bustling activity for the organization.
Several smokers and variety shows went over with a bang. A lot
of student talent combined with the talent of the Hurley nurses for
several evenings of entertaimnent. Plant tours through Buick and
Chevrolet attracted a large number of men, predominantly upper-
classmen. The tour through the
GM Proving Grounds at Milford
provided conversation topics around
GMI for many weeks.

PKE-The school year began with
a busy schedule for Phi Kap. High-
light of the month was a smoker
for the incoming freshmen. Al
Reddock and Bill Richilla baffied
the audience with strange tricks.
The guests were amused with a
Bud Abbott and Lou Costello
movie, and the football highlight
games of last year. Refreshments
of cider, sandwiches, and dough-
nuts were served. Singing topped
the entertainment to bring an en-
joyable evening to a close.
The social program for the
month was climaxed with a suc-
cessful house party.
Gilgql-Among the new house-
guests at Gilgal are Wayne Cer-
veny and Russ McClellan of Chi-
cago, Bill Thompson of Atlanta,
Anthony Zinicola and Conrad
Strozik of Syracuse, Dave Cal-
lander of Miami, and Don Leck-
rone of LaPorte, Ind.
In addition, pledgeship was ex-
tended to Harold Friend of Day-
ton. Tom Lonegan and Casper
DeFiore completed their pledge-
ship and underwent formal initia-
New officers for the coming year
are Louis Papale, presiding of-
ficer, James Eakes, treasurerg
Charles Barber, secretaryg and
James Grierson, house manager.
Two study rooms were redec-
orated and more closet space
added. Desks and furniture were
replaced or refinished to match the
new surroundings. There is also
a new ceiling in the front hall and
The main social event of the
month was a house party held
Sunday of the third week. Laugh-
able antics performed by the Gilgal
merrymakers served as entertain-
ment for the evening.
PTA-Phi Tau swung into action
to start its twenty-third year at
GMI. New officers assumed their
duties and the gears were shifted
into low to get off to a roaring
The new officers in Section A-C
are Bill Brennen, Vice-Presidentg
Rodger Moore, Senior Treasurer,
Parker Bates, Treasurerg Dave

Bob Leppelmeir, Social Chairman,
promoted a hayride on the third
week end. A large turnout insured

AGU-Alpha Gamma Upsilon was
host to new Freshmen at a smoker
the first Monday of this section.
The evening included movies, sing-
ing, a skit by the pledges, and re-
On Oct. 14, the fraternity staged
a banquet at the Old Mill inn in
commemoration of Founder's day.
Herbert R. Carter, one of the four
founders of Alpha Gamma Upsilon,
was present at the celebration.
Many members were present from
other chapters of the national
fraternity. After the banquet, a
business meeting was held, at
which awards were presented for
scholastic achievement. Harry Mc-
Callum, a member of the chapter
at GMI, received the Scholar Pen-
dant, of which four are presented
each year to the four top men of
the 13 chapters of the fraternity.
Lloyd De Mause and Ronald Terry
received awards for their scholastic
The fraternity held a Halloween
party, including decorations, for
the Freshmen. Girls were invited
for the dateless men. Pat Murphy
was chairman of the party. His
committee chairmen were Don
Campbell, publicity, Louis Heeb,
entertainment, Giles Ross, refresh-
ments 5 and Bill Weaks, reception.
AD-Sixteen new house guests
have filled Alpha Delta to capacity.
They are Dave Assard, John
Hudak, Max Jabs, Chuck Momson,
Chet Swierczynski, Don Coons,
Bill Goldbach, Dick Hinkle, Bob
Brownell, Bill Trampus, Bob Holt-
hennick, Ed Oldis, Chuck Raushert,
Bob Jahn, Pete Momcilovich, and
The house entertained a unit
of Nu Pi Mu sorority at a house
party recently. Between AD's
16 house guests and their 15
pledges, there was a large collec-
tion of new faces. Jim Woolley
soon had everyone running all oVe1'
Flint in a treasure hunt. Chuck
Luthe's team was declared winner
and awarded all-day suckers for
The new men, although hard at
work on homework most of the
time, have found time to meet
feminine interests in Flint, and
were well represented at the steak
roast held Saturday of the third
week at Meyers lake. Even though
they managed to get most of the
steaks, they left enough to keep
the members and their guests from
Through the efforts of Works
Manager Ferrill Jeffries and Pledge
Manager Chuck Luthe, the house
duties have been done to perfec-
WE-Things were pretty lively
around the White Elephant man-
sion during Section AC-1. New
grass was planted at the front of
the house and a curb was added
at the side of the house.
The halls no longer seemed
empty as they did in BC section
after the loss of the Seniors. In
fact, they were never empty, in-
asmuch as there were seven new
houseguests: Bob Brennan, Paul
Jaquish, Tom Soblesky, John
Zehnder, and Ray Sundak, all
from Saginawg Ron Trealor from
Petoskey, Mich., and George Gal-
lanis from Syracuse, N. Y.
A party the third week end was
attended by members, pledges, and
houseguests. Of course, a few of
them -got wet during the apple
dunking and few of the ladies
had their toes scuffed while danc-
ing, but when the party was over,
everyone left with the feeling that
they had had an enjoyable evening.
GMT-House improvements have
been many, including the refinish-
ing of the recreation room with
knotty pine and the installing of
booths, tables, and a snack bar.
Three of the study rooms were
made to look like new with addi-
tion of paint, rugs, and asphalt
Great fervor has been displayed
by all concerned in completing
these tasks as characterized by
this classic remark made by a
member at 4:30 a.m. on a frosty
Friday, "By dude, we'll put this
piping in if it takes all night."
This month presented three new
members to the house of Gamma.
They are Paul Johnson of Bay City
and John Eblacker and Guy Steele
A hayride was held the second
week end followed by a party at
the house in the partially-complet-
ed recreation room. A good time
was had by all except one of the
house guests' dates, who had hay
fever. Maybe a sleigh ride would
have been more plausible.
PSP-The new semester found
Phi Sig filled to capacity. The
roster shows eight new house-
guests with New York and Ohio
well represented. The new men
include Don Kelly, Fred Eysvogel,
Anthony Giardina, Parker Lorton,
Richard Green, Sam Grice, Clar-
ence Mayer, and Edward Fax-
The big social event of the
month was a get-acquainted party
at the Fenton Lake Yacht club
Saturday night of the second week.
It proved to be a huge success.

Have you taken the College
You may be

dates and not
eligible to take the
the two remaining
be aware of the fact. If you are
wondering whether or not it is to
any avail to take the test, you
should know that many Selective
Service boards are beginning to
recognize the test as reason for
postponement of induction. If you
wish to continue your learning
here at the Institute, and have
not taken the test, you are urged
to register for it as soon as pos-
There are still two dates re-
maining on which the test will be
given. These dates were established
because of the large volume of col-
lege enrollees in the fall of 1951.
The dates are Thursday, Dec. 13,
1951, and Thursday, April 24,
1952. As in the past, the test will
be given at examination centers
throughout the United States and
in Alaska, Canel Zone, Hawaii,
and Puerto Rico. A list of these
centers can be obtained from your
local board or viewed in Room 147
here at the Institute.
To be eligible to take the test,
an applicant must be a Selective
Service registrant who intends to
request occupational deferment as
a student. He must be satis-
factorily pursuing a full-time col-
lege course, undergraduate or grad-
uate, leading to a degree. And
last, he must not previously have
taken the test.
To obtain further information
on what the test consists of and
what is 1'equired in applying for
the test, all that is necessary is to
go to your local board and ask for
a copy of "Bulletin of Informa-
tion" on the Selective Service Col-
lege Qualification Test for Decem-
ber, 1951, and April, 1952.
This is not a matter to be taken
lightly because any steps toward
taking the test could possibly mean
another year of college or a com-
plete college education.
SAE Holds Election
Officers for the year were elect-
ed at the first meeting of the GMI
Student Branch of the O SAE-
George E. Tozer of Pontiac Motor
Division was elected chairman
while Carl Nigh of Allison Division
was elected Secretary-Treasurer.
Plans for the year include movie-
speaker meetings and plant field
trips. Students interested in be-
coming members may contact
either of the officers or Mr. Eric
Halvarson, Faculty Advisor.

PHI 'K P MEET PHI TA Fl AL
Alpha Gam Bows to Phi Kap in
in Final of Losers' Bracket
by "We Should Tell You?"
Dick Topp is rumored to be contemplating moving to Arizona since
the Spartans defeated Ohio State. Other loyal sons were very remorseful
on that fateful Saturday, and their enthusiasm was not heightened by
0SU's tie with Wisconsin. However, the roof fell in when the Buckeyes
lost to Indiana. Now the boys have both the "Hoosiers" and "Mich-
iganders" to contend with.
"Wink" Van IVinkle has organized a touch football team among
the ex-professionals at GMI. Their first will be against Phi Tau's
"Phonies." Bring out the stretch-
ers, mother, they're gonna roll them
Lou Terhune, "hunter," has a
new theory on how to bag pheas-
ant. He and John "Double-Barrel"
Hoss were joyously trampling
through some underbrush when
Lou spotted a bird ambling along
before him. Hoss took careful
aim, but Lou restrained him. Then
in a mighty burst of speed, he took
off after the pheasant. Two rips
and three scrzztclies later, Lou tri-
umphantly marched back to dumb-
founded John-pheasant in hand.
This would be a great tribute to a
truly great hunter were it not for
the fact that the poor bird had a
busted wing, and was in no con-
dition to elude Lou.
Nick Montes, volleyball expert
on the local scene, was cornered
after his wards from Re Kappa
Tire lost four straight games.
Said "Nimble Nick," with varied
tones of remorse, "My boys were
handicapped by the net-it was
three inches too high at the bottom
in both of the sets. But just wait
until the chess tournament comes
up-we're planning to take the
crown, if we don't get rooked
Last Saturday a group of sturdy
foreign boys organized a soccer
game. Juniors tangled with the
upperclassmen, and the competitive
spirit waxed hot. About half way
through the match, the Junior
goalie got off a soaring kick. Now
the object of the game, supposedly,
is to use one's head, to hit the ball
with, that is. Picture to yourself
14 lads, waiting with eager pates
for the ball to descend from its
dizzy heights. Closer comes the
spheroid, and closer. Heads are
ready. Then, all 14 in unison ad-
vance one pace to the rear and the
ball bounces untouched in their
midst. Successfully accomplishing
their ruse, the booters continue on
their merry ways. Ah yes, discre-
tion is the better part of Valor.
Henkel Tops Field of
Four in Handball
The tremendous turnout for
handball this section astounded
every one. It seems that the game
a lost art here at GMI. Total
entries into competition were four.
The stalwart individuals were John
Crawford from Gamma Mu Tau,
Ed Grabovac from Phi Tau Alpha,
Ed Abel from Phi Kappa Epsilon,
and Mike Henkel of Alpha Delta.
This enabled the above-mentioned
to enter the semi-finals by mere-
ly afiixing their names to the sign-
Wheii the play finally began,
Crawford was defeated by Grabo-
vac while Abel bowed to Henkel.
Mike then went on to capture the
crown by dumping "Creepy,' Ed.
Only twice was Henkel forced to
work up a sweat.
Topp vs. Grabovac in
The GMI badminton tournament
went into the semi-finals with three
remaining contenders for the title.
Of 18 entrants into the competi-
tion, only Tuck Whitehead of the
Independents, Ed Grabovac of Phi
Tau, and Dick Topp of Phi Kappa
Whitehead is assured of a berth
in the finals by virtue of a bye.
Grabovac and Topp must do battle
to determine who meets Whitehead
for the crown.
In attaining his position, Tuck
defeated Carl Rehm, Pratt, and
Dean Waters in decisive victories.
Grabovac first tangled with Blair
Caplinger and downed him in two
straight. He then took on Al Red-
dock and also emerged victorious.
Topp wasted no time in trouncing
Al Tyree two straight games, and
although Bob Swick put up some
valiant competition, he also suc-
cumbed to the "Topper."
Phi Tau Alpha, undefeated in four tilts, will meet Phi Kappa Ep-
silon to determine the volleyball championship of GMI. Phi Kappa
won the right to play the Phi Taus by virtue of their win over Alpha
Gam in the final of the losers' bracket. Behind only once in the two
games required to complete the set, Phi Kap, led by Al Reddock and
Len Radionoff, showed teamwork of high caliber, and loom as a
big obstacle in the path of Phi Tau's championship drive.
Alpha Gam was helpless in the first game of the set, failing to
score a single point. They rallied
in the second game, largely through
the efforts of John Spring, to tie
the score at 14 all, where it re-
mained for a full five minutes
while the teams exchanged serves.
The low hard serves of Al Red-
dock proved to be the deciding
factor as Phi Kap finally won 16-
Phi Tau's first victory was over
the Gilgal houseguests. Then,
after dumping White Elephant,
they tangled with a strong Over-
seas sextet led by Pierre Ver-
straeten. After a bitter struggle,
PTA won out. Next came Alpha
Gam who had previously beaten
Phi Kap, Gamma Mu, and Gilgal,
but who proved not quite strong
enough to overcome thc heads-up
play of Phi Tau.
White Elephant, after losing to
Phi Tau, encountered and defeat-
ed the Men of Neomc and Gilgal
before losing to Phi Kap in a match
which was protested and later re-
played. Phi Kap downed Phi Sig
before losing to AGU, whereupon
they started their four-game
streak which included victories
over Gamma Mu and Overseas as
well as White Elephant and Alpha
Thus the stage was set for the
championship tilt between the un-
beaten Phi Tau aggregation, led
by Emil Bair, Bob Forward, and
Joe Prosser, and Phi Kap, whose
spirited play had won them five out
of six matches.
Sixteen teams were entered into
the field, to set a new record for
participation in volleyball at GMI.
Eight of the teams were from
fraternities while the other eight
came from the ranks of the Inde-
pendents. Although the sport is
noted as one where individual play-
ers rarely stand out as stars, the
tournament play uncovered much
latent talent, especially among the
freshmen, whose teams more than
once walloped the seasoned vet-
erans of the courts.

FACULTY CHANGES ANNQUNGE
In a flurry of changes and additions to the Faculty and Administra-
tion of GMI, several new personalities have appeared on the local
scene. Of primary importance is the installation of Mr. Bechtold as
the registrar, replacing Mr. W. T.
MaWl1inney, who recently retired.
Mr. Bechtold received his Bachelor of Education from Illinois State
Normal University, his Master's from Columbia University. He did
postgraduate work at U of M. He
he was principal at Longfellow
school in Flint. During the war
he served as an administration of-
ficer and joined the GMI faculty
in November, 1947. Mr. Bechtold
was formerly with the Management
The English and Psychology de-
partment finds itself with five new
men. Thomas Calcerano, Jr., re-
ceived his Bacheloi-'s and Master's
degrees in Speech from Syracuse
University. He also taught at
Syracuse after graduation. Mar-
vin Swift spent three years at GMI.
After the war, he received his
Bachelor's and Master's degrees
in English from the U of M.
Robert Carter also propounds
speech here after getting his BA
and MA degrees at the U of M.
Eldon Kelly, who acquired degrees
from Iowa State Teachers College
and State University of Iowa, will
teach psychology. Simon Herman
received his Master's degree in
Psychology from Wayne University
before coming to GMI.
The Drawing and Design De-
partment boasts of two additions.
Kenneth Lehman attended the U
of M and Michigan State Normal
Teachers College to get his BS
degree, while William Schneider,
who hails from Chicago, has BS
and ME degrees from the Uni-
versity of Illinois. Frank Krall
has recently transferred from the
Product Service Department to the
Drawing Design Department.
In the Industrial Engineering
Department, Parker Green, former
head of Industrial Engineering at
Bradley University, is teaching
Juniors and Seniors. His latest
was at Texas Tech. He
has received BS, MA, and PhD de-
grees. Edward Polk, whose home
is in Cleveland, Ohio, graduated
from GMI in 1948 and teaches
Methods and Time Study.
Steve Cenko has returned to
GMI as a member of the Product
Service Department after receiving
his BS degree here in 1948.
Norman E. Looney, now with the
Business and Economics Depart-
ment, is from Springfield, Mo., and
received his Business Administra-
tion degree from Southwest Mis-
souri State College in 1949.
Edward C. Long, who received
a Master's degree in Education
became acquainted with GMI while
from Northwestern University and
a Master's degree in Mathematics
from Michigan State, now teaches
mathematics at GMI.
John Keehner is again teaching
physics and related subjects after
a year's leave of absence during
which he earned a Master's degree
from Notre Dame University.
Max Kelly, formerly with the
Speech department, has been
transferred to the Distribution
Training Stad. William Ross left
the Economics and Business De-
partment at GMI to accept a posi-
tion at Delco Appliance.
Attendance Flares orl-
Social Council Hops
The first social event of the
month, held Friday of the first
week by the GMTE Social Coun-
cil, was the much heralded "Fresh
Hop." With "Freshman Activ-
ities" as the appropriate theme,
the affair served to familiarize the
Freshmen with the various school
functions. Posters at the entrance
and throughout the gym, depicting
typical Freshmen participating in
school and outside activities, helped
emphasize the theme.
During the intermission, a
"Freshman Serenade" was odered
by GMI'S version of the Three
Suns. They called themselves the
Four Falling Stars, and were made
up of Chuck Barber, Roy Gore,
George Mekker, and Joe Manfredo.
Brahm Ward's orchestra provided
the downbeat for the large crowd
which turned out despite competi-
tion from a football game and sev-
eral local dances.
Of exceptional popularity was
the "Spook Serenade," held two
weeks later. A fine job of pub-
licity by the Social Council was
evidenced by the large attendance.
An atmosphere of Halloween,
with all its romantic mystery was
created through posters and dec-
orations. They included witches
hovering before a background of
a full moon, broomsticks, pump-
kins and candles, black cats, and
other scenes suggestive of the
date. Entertainment befitting the
season was rende1'ed during the
John Palmer, who can be found
hiding behind a pinochle hand most
any time, has a car with a unique
front-end alignment. Since "Dirty
John" tinkered with it, every time
he pushes in the cigarette lighter,
the right front wheel turns ninety
degrees. Keep trying, Johng Rube
Goldberg won't last forever.
Bob "Angles" Garney is the
newly-established authority on sub-
versive elements and actions in the
underworld. Says Bob, "Since I've
been taking Business Law, the
monetary returns from various
under handed dealings have in-
creased greatly. Any one of you
guys who wants the real inside
dope, just see me."
Carl "Middle of the Road" Beau-
doin has a universal theory which
applies to all questions asked.
When requested to state the ad-
vantages of one or the other pos-
sibility, he inevitably retorts, "It
seems to me that there must be
some happy medium." At this the
teacher goes into a fit of unbound-

tion graduate of 1948, has recently
been reassigned as an operations
and training staff ofiicer with
Headquarters Fifth Air Force in
He flew 55 combat missions with
the Third Bombardment Wing as
radar navigation ofiicer, for which
he has been awarded the Air Medal

Lieutenant Geyer's wife and son,
Dennis, are living in Bay City. His
parents, Mr. and Mrs. Walter G.
Geyer, reside in Saginaw.
Because he was able to identify
the song "Sweet Violets," Jim
Erickson won himself a movie cam-
era and projector. He was in the
home of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Betz

dence, Sunday, Oct. 7, and sought
someone to identify the tune. Jim
was unable, however, to give the
title of the mystery melody.
Jim is a Dealer student. His

co-ops with Pontiac Motor Sales
there. He is in Section C and is
in his second year at GMI. He

TOTALS OVER 1850
There was no ringing of any
community school bell but upon
the opening of Section BD-1 this
year, 908 men converged upon the
Institute, to make a total enroll-
ment of 1862 men. To most of
these men it was an old story.
However, for 359 new students it
was the first time ever to go
through the registration process or
pay their tuition. Next time they,
too, will be veterans and will enjoy
the looks of amazement of other
The 908 Section BD men are
composed of 569 engineering
students, 82 business administra-
tion, and 257 dealer students.
Many faraway places are repre-
sented by 12 overseas students
whose countries form a chain
around the earth. They include
Australia, France, Germany, Eng-
land, South America, and Mexico.
TOURED BY AMA
The General Motors Institute
chapter of the American Manage-
ment Association held its first
activity of the new school year by
taking a tour of the Dow Chemical
plant in Midland. Approximately
60 members of the organization
took the trip, Thursday of the third
As a result of the recent mem-
bership drive, the GMI chapter of
the AMA now numbers one hun-
dred and forty-three active mem-
bers, which makes this group the
largest single chapter in the coun-
try and the largest professional
organization in the school.
The men who direct the AMA's
activities through the current
school year are Arn Andres, Pres-
ident, Don Wendel and George
Parsons, Vice-presidentsg and Bob
Bolda, Activities Chairman.
Among the activities planned for
the coming year are a number of
plant tours, one of which will be
through the Lansing Oldsmobile
plant, and also several dinners
featuring guest speakers from all
phases of management.

Fisher Body Ternstedt and BOP
Division, was the guest speaker at
the Tech Club's monthly dinner
held in the school cafeteria Nov.
Mr. Gordon, a native of Greeley,
Colo., was graduated from the U.S.
Naval Academy in 1922 and re-
ceived a Master's degree in Sci-
ence from the University of Mich-
igan in 1923. Upon completion
of his academic training, Mr. Gor-
don then started on a successful
career with General Motors Cor-
poration as a laboratory technician
at the Cadillac Motor Division and
progressed in the division to posi-
tions of Motor Design Engineer,
Foreman of Experimental Labora-
tory, Chief Engineer, General
Manager of Cadillac in 1946, and
was appointed to the position he
now holds in January, 1951.
Mr. Gordon based his talk on
the fundamental requirements of
success in the engineering field. He
not only considered the basic edu-
cational requirements, but dis-
cussed at length the important
personal requirements that go
into the making of a successful
individual. His frequent ref-
erences to incidents from his own
experience illustrated how im-

In the question-and-answer pe-
riod, Mr. Gordon answered ques-
tions ranging from Dealership re-
rlations to engineering and busi-
ness problems, revealing a broad
knowledge of all these subjects.
After the question-and-answer
session, the Tech club held a
short business meeting. Officers
for the 1951-52 school year were
elected. Ray Johns was elected
chairman from Section B and Al
Gull was elected secretary-treas-
urer. Plans were also discussed
for the forthcoming Christmas din-
ner meeting, to be an all-you-can-
eat chicken dinner at Franken-
The Tech Club is an organiza-
tion consisting of selected student
representatives from the various
plants and dealerships of General
Motors. 'The club was founded
by President Emeritus Albert
Sobey in 1939 for the purpose of
providing an opportunity for the
members to come in contact with
some of the broader aspects of in-
dustrial and community life
through having speakers of stand-
ing address them with an oppor-
tunity following for general ques-
tion and answer period. The first
speaker was Mr. Paul Garrett,
Vice-President in charge of Public
Relations. Among others who
have been guest speakers at the
Tech 'Club dinners during the past
years are such men as Charles
Chayne, William F. Hufstader,
Charles E. Wilson, R. K. Evans,
Charles L. McCuen, and George
Mann, Jr. '
He comes from North East, Pa.,
where the men are undoubtedly
grown large, as Neil stands 6 feet
5 inches tall and packs 190 pounds
on his frame.
As a freshman, Neil pledged Phi
Tau Alpha Fraternity, and did a
considerable amount of work on.
the Social Council at GMI.
In appreciation of his splendid
efforts, he was made a manager on
the,Social Council and elected to
the office of secretary of Phi Tau
Alpha. During his sophomore
year, Neil was also a member of
the Inter-fraternity Council.
In the midst of his junior year,
Neil received a call to the Robots,
which is one of the highest honors
that may be conferred on a student
at GMI. His junior year was a
busy one, for he was appointed to
the Tech Club by his plant, elected
to the position of secretary of the
Social Council, and was in charge
of the rushing program for Phi
Tau Alpha. It was during this
year, also, that Neil was nominated
to the All-Star volleyball team on
the basis of his excellent perform-
ances on the hardwood.
In this, his senior year, Neil's
work on the Social Council in the
previous years was climaxed with
his election -to the chairmanship of
the Social Council. Along with
these many honors, he is a member
of the Executive Council at Tech.
Neil's work here at GMI, and
the innumerable honors he has
gained for himself during his time
here, should be a valuable asset
to him after graduation.

A few days ago, several members of THE TECHNICIAN staff were
thumbing through some old copies of THE FLINTECHO, the original
GM Tech monthly, published back in the 1928-34 period. We were
particularly impressed with the ingenuity, enthusiasm for the school,
and the downright authentic school spirit that these GMI students
possessed-a far cry from the slipshod, indifferent, and put-on attitude
that can be seen around school today. Back in 1932, there was enough
school spirit present for the students to independently manage a
newspaper containing technical ,articles by top GM oflicials, and gen-
uine ORIGINAL humor.
But why be concerned with, what happened 20 years ago? Simply
because here was a school that GMI was and should be today-and it
certainly isn't, judging from the participation at the Awards Assembly
the first week of section. It used to be that at least the fraternities
supported these functions, if nb one else didg however, things must be
at a new low when one fraternity doesn't even have a representative
present to receive the athletic award that it won during the preceding
Perhaps the fault does not lie entirely with the students . . . the
quality of the entertainment is not always exactly what will produce
a satisfied audience. At the last assembly, the movie was run for over
15 minutes before the sound track was heard. . . perhaps that had
something to do with people leaving before the end of the picture.
An assembly committee is now in existence consisting of three
faculty members and a student representative from each section. This
committee will plan the year's assemblies and it is hoped that future
programs will show a marked improvement over past performances.
With the co-operation of students, real progress can undoubtedly be
made. - . 1
KNOW YOUR INSTRUCTORS
By AL METZGER
Way back in 1921 Cwhen you
and I weren't even thought off a
little parcel was delivered to the
Keehner family of Youngstown
Ohio. John, they called him. To-
day, John Keehner commands re-
spect as one of the outstanding
Physics instructors at GMI.
Let's look back now and see
just what brought this about.
Upon graduation from high
school, John entered St. Joseph
college at St. Joseph, Ind. There
he received a Bachelor's Degree in
Physics and Math. His schooling
then moved to North Carolina
State University, Where he re-
ceived a certificate in Diesel En-
Then, as to all good citizens,
"it" happened! The navy claimed
J ohn's talents for the ne:-rt three
and a half years. During his tour
of duty, he attended Notre Dame
Where he earned his ensign's stripe.
He also got his first taste of GMI,
courtesy of the navy diesel pro-
then saw action through-
the Philippines, Borneo, Guadal-
canal, etc. He also served in the
original occupation of Korea.
In 1944, he married his college
sweetheart from Raleigh, N. C.,
Miss Margaret Fowler. Their
marriage has been blessed with
two children: Cheryl, born in
1946, and Rosemary, born in 1949.
When discharged in '45, John
did graduate work in Physics at
Indiana University. I-Ie then came
to Flint where he taught in the
McKinley Jr. High School for one
semester. In the summer of 1947
he came to GMI, and has been here
since. In 1950 he received a one-
year leave of absence to continue
his studies in Physics. This year's
work at the University of Notre
Dame brought John his Master's

No FRATERNITY LIFE?
A GMIA MEMBER Looxs
AT INDEPENDENT LIFE
By ARN ANDRES
One of the most widely-discussed
topics on and oif our national col-
lege campuses today is the
fraternity. Some colleges swear
by them-others swear at them.
But no mention is ever made about
the "Independent Associations" at
these colleges. Are they so demo-
cratic as to be above criticism?
Obviously, both types of organiza-
tions have distinct advantages or
Primarily, this article is intended
to point out factors which GMI
freshmen fand upper-classmenl
should take into consideration be-
fore getting involved in either one
of these social organizations.
An Independent has complete
freedom of his time. He eats,
sleeps, studies, and plays when he
feels like it. He is under no ob-
ligation-direct or implied-to par-
ticipate in any function he does
not care to enter.
Because he has this social free-
dom, anything he accomplishes,
or any honor he receives is usually
gained from his own efforts-and
is not the result of any system he
Sometimes the argument that
there is no close fellowship be-
tween Independents is presented.
Nothing could be further from the
truth. Almost invariably, an in-
dependent will board with four
or live of his friends. Usually
every evening around 9 o'clock
when most Independents take a
break from their studies, you can
find them laughing and joking in
restaurants around school.
If the Independent wants to par-
ticipate in the athletic program at
school, he either organizes his own
team among his friends, or works
through the Independent Associa-
tion to be placed on a team. If
he wants to have a lot of fun and
laughs, he gets in on the monthly
Variety Shows, plant tours, or pic-
Incidentally, if anyone brings
up the question of finances, just
remember that most Independents
buy a meal ticket for around S32
a month, and housing this own
roomy usually runs between S16
and F528 a month. The total for
his room and board runs about S60
DANCE CLASSES HELD

Two dancing classes a1'e now

samba, and some jitterbug, if time
permits. The fellows have been

are no girls taking the lessons, at
least at p1'esent. The series con-

that afternoon, both Newman Clubs
participated in a Holy Year Pil-
grimage, visiting the various Cath-
olic Churches in Flint. After the
pilgrimage, everyone adjourned to
St. John's hall where a potluck
supper was served. Music for
dancing was supplied afterwards
on records by Ray Colmbs, well-
known disc jockey of Flint.

Phi Tau Alpha
For November, PTA chose to have its house party
on the general theme of Thanksgiving, even to the
point of giving a live turkey to the couple most
deserving. The basis for naming the most deserving
couple, however, was never really established. At
any rate, it appeared that the turkey was the most
deserving thing of the evening, judging from the
attempts to keep the bird away from the carpets.
The party was presented under the supervision of
Paul McLear, the fraternity social chairman. The
co-operation of the entire membership and house
guests was combined to present one of the most
unusual parties Phi Tau has seen since the days of
"Harvey" and the live rabbit.
The PTA "policy committee" met Wednesday
evening of the third week at 11:05 p.m. over hot
coffee in the dining room. The "Think" sign was
appropriately displayed, and the problem of the
evening was presented. The subject concerned the
outcome of the Michigan State-Notre Dame game.
Charlie Daberkoe made an analysis of the situation,
using as his principal reference the SAE Journal of
1922. After making sundry charts, graphs, and
special calculations, a positive decision was reached
. . . the error was only 38 points-another success-
ful accomplishment of the "policy committee."
AD got 0E to a wonderful start this year with
14 new house guests helping to fill the house to
capacity. They are Jack Fels, Jim Levins, William
Burton, Robert Mau, Frank Feher, Jerry Muddux,
William Tauck, William Wiemer, David Wright,
William Phillips, Charles Fellinger, John Vicik, John
Conway, and Gordon Wilson.
Nu Pi Mu Sorority, with the assistance of our
new Social Chairman, Leon Gloshinski, entertained
the men of AD with a party, Nov. 3. The party, by
the way, was a great success. A smoker was held
the third Monday, followed by a house party Nov. 17.
Still impressive is the newly-redecorated living
room, which was completed just before termination
last year. Further building and repairs, both inside
and outside the house, will be conti-nued this year
with Works Manager Bill I-Iinkle spurring the men
on. President B. J. Smith and Vice-Presidents
Archie Campbell and George Mahlmeister have
proved themselves capable leaders in the first two
months of this school year.
When the elephants returned to begin the new
school year, they were delighted to the Bulging
Bungalow filled to capacity with house guests. After
taking a careful inventory it was finally determined
that the total number of these guests were 15.000
fSlide Rule Accuracyl. One of the elephants from
Saginaw was extra ambitious during zero section in
recruiting duties, and six house guests rolled in from
Saginaw, including Rodney Worth, John Lobsiger,
John Archambeau, Buryl Burgess, Glen McDaniels,
and Dick Hutter. Other guests included Floyd Bush,
Neil Hagen, and Norm Bartley from Warren, Ohiog
Jack Snodgrass, Bill Reynolds, and Eldeen Purtee
from Daytong Keith Bridge, Chicagog Bill Eckstrom,
Sioux Cityg and Dick Moxley, Detroit.
Social activities for the month included a smoker
for freshmen and a gala house party at Frankenmuth
on the third Saturday.
A PLEDGE LOCKS AT
By DAVE TROJAN
What's a fraternity for? Does
fraternity life compete with study?
How do they operate and how can
I get a First-hancl view of what
fraternity life is like?
Just a few more days and if my
Q.P.'s are high enough, I will com-
plete my pledgeship. I am a little
behind, but I think I can make
my two-month average of 30 Q.P.'s
which is required for membership
in our fraternity.
Somehow the home-like atmos-
phere, the swell bunch of fellows,
the social and competitive program,
and the group spirit that prevails,
is just what I was looking for.
Besides, there is always someone
around to give me a hand on that
tough calc or physics problem.
I don't think I'll ever regret en-
tering the fraternity as a house
guest. Even if I didn't like it, I
would have known what fraternity
life was like. I would have seen
both sides of the picture.
Study hours are from '7 to 11.
Of course my study isn't perfectly
quiet every night. It couldn't be
with forty fellas in the house. But
then I found that if I really wanted
to study there was always a quiet
place somewhere, and that the men
were pretty decent about being
quiet most of the time.
The big social event for the
month was the house party, held
the third week. Dancing, group
singing, a short program, and
snacks afterwards, all added up to
a top-notch time. This party was
a date affair, of course.
As far as athletics go, we try to
have representation in every sport,
with the best men we have par-
At the house I have my own
desk, set of drawers, and some
closet space. We all sleep in the
dormitory, a well-ventilated room
in one part of the house.
The members select their own
oflicers to control the house busi-
ness. I might also say that each
fraternity sends two representa-
tives to what is called the Inter-
Fraternity Council. This council
acts as a mediator between the

Believing in giving credit where credit is due,
the fraternity has bestowed the title of "Oflicial
Big Game Hunter" on one of its members. In the
dark of the dormitory during the second Week, he
stalked, tracked down, and fearlessly did away with
a ferocious bat. His only weapons were a shoe and
determination. He has promised to bring home two
on his next safari.
Returning students of Section BD were greeted
with a welcome surprise at Gamma Mu. During
September and October, the members of the other
sections had nearly completed decorating the recrea-
tion room. The walls are covered with pine paneling
and matched with a gray-tile Hoor trimmed in red
and yellow. This combination gives a very pleasing
effect and, Without a doubt, this room will prove to
be one of the most popular in the house when it is
completed. Other plans for house improvements are
a retaining wall on the north edge of the grounds
and a new kitchen layout. Both of these improve-
ments have already been started and should be com-

Phi Sigma Phi
Phi Sig fraternity was found bulging at the seams
from the admittance of new house guests. With
11 house guests and 18 members, the house is
supporting its maximum number of occupants. In
order to facilitate the needs of all these young men,
6V61'y available space has been utilized for desks,
drawer space, and sleeping quarters. Even the
arrangement of the dining room had to be changed
to accommodate all the students.
The house guests at Phi Sig are Dug Ahern,
Harry Cameron, Bob Cleland, Roy DeWitte, Joe
Finlay, Tom Harper, Gil Harder, Clarence Petersen,
Bert Martens, Dave Robertson, and Dick Steinbaugh.
John Selizen returned this section to resume his
studies at GMI. John was president of the fraternity
last year but Uncle Sam occupied his spare moments
in the service of the USMC. We are all glad to
welcome John back to Phi Sig.

Since its inception in 1932, Delta Chapter of
AGU has striven to maintain its high principles and
quality of men. As a crowning glory this year, the
men of the chapter have finally paid the mortgage
on their house.
With this obstacle out of the way, eyes are be-
ginning to turn to new improvements on the house.
Two new basement study rooms have been added
to the already comfortable quarters, and a new
kitchen sink is the first of the future modernization
plans to be put into action.
As is the usual custom, a house party was held
the third week end of section. A large crowd turned
out and all had an enjoyable time carrying out the

The volleyball tournament in Section BD has thus far been one of
the most action-packed and thrilling tournaments in the past few years.
The tournament has been a big success, which can be seen by the fact
that 19 teams have entered the competition. Most of the games played
were hard-fought throughout and few games were won by decisive
margins, indicating that the teams were well balanced and experienced

Phi Kap, one of the strongest teams in the race. The Blue
and White team is now scheduled to play White Elephant.
White Elephant has thus far been undefeated and is favored to
take the plaque, although the final games will by no means be a run-
away. White Elephant earned its way into the quarter-finals by beating
Alpha Delt, two games out of three. This series was one of the best
exhibitions of good volleyball played thus far in the tournament. The
green and white jumped off to an early lead in the first game and
continued to outplay their opponents for the rest of the match, winning
15 to 8. The next game was a different story with the spirited Alpha

match throughout. However, the good setups and line spiking on the
part of Don Sinsabaugh and his teammates was the deciding factor and
White Elephant barely squeezed by Alpha Delt, 15 to 13.
Phi Sig, a top contender for the plaque, also won a close series,
enabling them to enter the quarter finals. Previously, the spirited
Phi Sig team nipped Phi Kap House Guests, 15 to 5, 12 to 15, and 16
to 14. After this victory, the Phi Sig men were matched against the
"Hotshots," an independent team. This series was another thriller.
The first game ended with the "Hotshots" victorious, 15 to 6. But
again, as in previous contests, the "never-say-die" Phi Sigs bounced
back with a 15-11 victory over the independents. After this de-
moralizing defeat, the "Hotshots" fell apart and the red and white
team continued on to victory, 15-10.
A well-organized and well-coached Phi Tau team beat Alpha Gam
in the nrst game, 15-11. Both teams played spectacular ball, both
defensively and offensively. However, in the second game Phi Tau
smothered Alpha Gam by a decisive score, 15-3. At one time, the Tau
men led 12-O, showing that they intend to battle for the plaque. Phi
Tau has lost one series. ,

Volume XII General Motors Institute, Flint. Michigan, Wednesday, December 19, 1951 Number 3
During the years of General Motors Institute operation there
have been indications that well-qualified students may have been
forced to discontinue their education and training due to nnancial
difficulties arising out of unfortunate emergency situations or de-
pendency obligations. This may also have been true of prospective
applicants who, due to financial
conditions beyond their control,
decided they would not be able to enroll.
Recognizing this situation, General Motors has established the
General Motors Institute Co-operative Student Loan Fund by action
of the Operations Policy Connnit-
tee. This Fund is administered by
the Executive Committee of the
Board of Regents and is one of the
many indications of General Mot-
ors interest in assisting in the de-
velopment of young men seeking
careers in industry.
The Fund provides for financial
assistance to qualified persons who
are either candidates for appoint-
ment or students already enrolled
in the Co-operative Engineering or
Co-operative Business Administra-
tion programs. Loans are available
on either a temporary basis or for
long-term needs covering the en-
tire four-year program. The pro-
visions for repayment are very
Information regarding candi-
dates or students needing assist-
ance may be brought to the atten-
tion of the Registrar by members
of the Institute faculty, the co-
operative plants, or by the student

of three administrative officers of
the Institute review all loan ap-
plications and make certain that
each case receives immediate atten-
tion and full consideration.
Thus the Fund provides insur-
ance that any approved applicant

Duiclds "dream" convertible,

engine designed to drive it 150 miles an hour, and is equipped with
dual four-wheel brakes. Charles A. Chayne, Vice-President of Gen-
eral Motors in charge of the engineering staE and the designer of the
XP-300, will present the featured innovations at the assembly.
The car, a custom model built for experimental purposes only, is

G. R. Cowing Speaks
Mr. Guy R. Cowing, President
and Director of General Motors In-
stitute, was the principal speaker
at the Tech Club dinner Monday
evening, Dec. 10. Mr. Cowing
confined his remarks primarily to
the fundamental requirements of
success in an industrial situation,
drawing upon his own experiences
Cowing presented a rather
unique approach to the problem of
recognition of the Institute for
accreditation, and the qualihcation
of Institute graduates in industry.
Of particular interest was the fact
that a considerable number of the
top 600 executives of the GM Cor-
poration are GMI graduates.
All co-operative programs at the
Institute will close for the Christ-
mas period at 5 p.m. Friday, Dec.

SAE Previews XP-300
Mr. C. A. Chayne, Vice-President
in charge of Engineering of GM,
displayed and spoke on Buick's
new experimental car, the XP 300,
at a closed SAE meeting, recently.
The XP 300 is a cumulative rep-
resentation of Mr. Chayne's auto-

was hand built and includes so
many new features, Buick has in-

sides of its long, flowing fenders.
It is labeled the XP-300 because
it is an experimental project and
has a 300 horsepower engine.
The XP-300 resulted from a co-
operative experimental program
inaugurated several years ago by
Chayne and Harley J. Earl, Gen-
eral Motors Vice-President in
charge of the styling section. The
project involved building two ex-
perimental cars, the XP-300 and
Le Sabre. Chayne took the re-
sponsibility for the mechanical fea-
tures of both cars and the styling
of the XP-300. Earl undertook
the styling of Le Sabre.
The XP-300 is as streamlined as
tomorrow's jet plane. Its body
panels are of heat-treated alum-
inum which reduces the total
weight of the car to 3,125 pounds.
Mounted on a 116-inch wheelbase,
it has an over all length of 192.5
inches and stands only 39.1 inches
high at the cowl. It is 80 inches
wide, with an over all height of
53.4 inches and its ground clear-
ance is 6.6 inches.
The car is equipped with two
aircraft type carburetors. One
feeds gasoline into the engine, the
other methyl alcohol which is in-

Whenever anyone mentions
sports activities, one of the first
personalities who comes to mind is
Jack Baker. He is a good example
of the typical American sports fig-
ure-trustworthy, friendly, clean
in mind and body, and a "fair"
player at all times.
Jack for "Bake" as he is more
usually calledl, was born in
Rochester, N. Y., March 23, 1932.
When he attended high school at
Monroe High in Rochester, he
earned letters in football, basket-

Upon graduation in 1949 he came

In his freshman year he earned
a silver athletic key for his work
as assistant manager in the Ath-
letic Council. Bake also became a
member of Phi Sigma Phi fratern-
ity, and has participated on all the
fraternity athletic teams since. In
his sophomore year he was secre-
tary of the Athletic Council, an
athletic manager, manager of the
Garlanders basketball team, and
athletic manager of the fraternity.
He was twice elected to the all-
star volleyball and basketball
teams. These activities earned him
a gold key for this year's work.
Jack's athletic activities have
culminated in his recent election
as Athletic Council Chairman for
this, his junior year. In this
capacity he is responsible for and
has charge of purchasing all sports
equipment to keep the crib well
stockedg arranging monthly sports
and assigning managers to carry
out these sports, and he also aids in
settling all protests and disputes
in an equitable and just manner.
Along with the chairmanship, he
is currently a representative of

Somehow Bake has still found
time for a successful social life,
for on June 10, 1951, he became
engaged to Miss Lila Painting of
Rochester. Tentative wedding plans
have been made for Aug. 16.
When Bake graduates from the
ME-3 sequence in 1953, he plans
to do experimental work on car-
buretors at R.P. If Bake's fifth
year work in carburetors is as suc-
cessful as his career here at Tech,
we'll all be driving our cars on
quarts instead of gallons of gas.
Rochester Products Division must
indeed be proud to sponsor such
an outstanding student.
One of the more enjoyable experiences of the month was the talk
given by Mr. Cowing at the Tech Club dinner last week. This was the
Hrst opportunity that many students have had to meet the president
informally. The Tech Club found Mr. Cowing to be a man with some
excellent ideas on the subject of success and failure, and possessed of
the ability to put these ideas across to a bunch of hardened students.
The occasional injection of subtle humor did much to accomplish his
purpose. Certainly respect is due when a man can stand back, look
at his job, and laugh at it. That is just what Mr. Cowing did when he
said that he couldn't feel right about giving advice on how to succeed
when he himself had held the same job for 31 years.
Perhaps some individuals thought that Mr. Cowing dwelt too much
on the abstract, but the abstract is one of the best tools for communi-
tion when it is used properly, as he did.
We feel that Mr. Cowing made a lot of friends among the students
last week. It is hoped that he will continue to be heard at student

The halls of 104 Welch rever-
berated Saturday with the joyous
laughter of happy children. The
scenic occasion was Alpha Gamma
Upsilon's nineteenth annual Christ-
mas party for needy children.
Tradition has been, and always
will be, to devote the time and
money that would ordinarily be
spent on each other, to a group of
needy children who otherwise
would have a sparse Christmas at
Gifts had to be purchased and
wrapped, the house and tree dec-
orated, and a dinner prepared to
get ready for the 26 small guests.
Even though the party lasted a few
short hours, the returns for the
weeks of preparation were readily
recognized in the shining eyes and
beaming smiles of the children.
Many guests, including Major
Sobey, Ollie King, and other GMI
faculw members helped all the
members of Alpha Gam greet the
children Saturday afternoon. A
typical holiday meal was quickly
consumed by the 26 hungry
mouths. After dinner and a few
movies, the children eagerly greet-
ed Santa Claus. Each child re-
ceived clothing and toys galore.
After the gifts were handed out,
the children displayed their talents
by either singing, dancing, or
Every one hated to see the end
of the party and to see the children
go, but we are sure they left with
more than material things. They
left with the true spirit of Christ-

of this school period found us en-

The dining room was remodeled
for the occasion.

Carl Brown and John Kehner of
the Economics and Physics depart-
ments, respectively, conduct some
of their classes directly across the
hall from each other. Evidently
one tries to outdo the other in a
contest to see who can talk louder.
The loser, usually Mr. Kehner,
slams his door in disgust, while
the victor, Mr. Brown, casually
strolls to his chair, sits down, rests
his pedal extremities on the desk,

played, with the Jets, Alpha Gam,

which Johnny Spring of the Welch

The second week found all 21
teams swinging into action, both
in the consolation and champion-

25 ball games were played, and,
after tabulating the final results,
the held had been reduced to a
total of six ball clubs, four in the
consolation bracket and two that

almost every ball game. In this
round, Phi Sig and the Hi-Flyers

Institute auditorium, Friday, Jan. 18. This non-commercial, popular
science demonstration show was presented by General Motors as an
educational service to its students.
Mr. Mobley introduced the show and its speakers, Mr. William
Bowman and Mr. Williaiii Wells.
These gentlemen then proceeded
to capture the attention and interest of the assemblage with the
wonders of modern science. Their theme was the unlimited oppor-
tunities awaiting the youth of America. In developing this theme,

This year, three unique demon-I
strations of latest import were
added. First, a series of com-N
pletely new developments was ex-I
hibited. Following this were old
conceptions which were improved'
upon over a period of time to bring
forth modern contributions.
The students were shown a
scientific curiosity known as "the
bottle with a temper," which ex-
hibited a dual personality of
strength and brittleness. Synthetic
rubber was manufactured before
their eyes from the contents of a
"pop" bottle and a small phial.
Mechanical vibration shattered a
goblet by the same principle Enrico
Caruso once used in vauntingly
displaying his powerful voice. The
audience was both fascinated and
entertained by the properties of

Its invisible vapors were actually
poured into a container in which
stood three lighted candles. As the
unseen surface of the vapor rose,
the candles were snuffed out in-
dividually in order of their height.
The latest in electronic trans-

plained and presented. Music was
transmitted across the stage on
the beam of a pin point arc lamp.

EGN CLUB DINNER MEETING
Mr. Thomas I-I. Keating, Vice-President and General Manager of
the Chevrolet Motor Division, was the guest speaker at the Tech Club's
monthly dinner-meeting held in the school cafeteria, Jan. 15.
Mr. Keating, whose activities in the automotive industry have
gained him much prominence, started upon his career with General
Motors Corporation in 1916 as Assistant Car Distributor for Chevrolet
Motor Division in New York. Shortly afterwards, Mr. Keating's
service with the corporation was temporarily interrupted for service
in the U.S. Navy in World War I.

Hal Maclnfyre To Play
at Sweetheart BaII
The annual Inter - Fraternity
Ball, sponsored by the affiliated
fraternities at General Motors In-
stitute, will be held this year in the
Institute's gymnasium, Saturday
evening, Feb. 23.
Music for the occasion will be
provided in the unique style of
Hal Maclntyre and his orchestra,
one of the foremost prom favorites
today. This ex-protege of Glen
Miller promises the choicest in
dance music presentation.
The main event of the evening
will be the selection of a "Queen
of the Ball" from among the
"Queens" sponsored by each
fraternity. Last year this honor
was conferred upon Miss Dorothy
Pratt, representative of Alpha
Gamma Upsilon. This year the
coveted title will be sought by
eight new lovelies. Dick Topp of
Phi Kappa Epsilon is general
chairman of the affair.
When discharged in 1919, he had
attained the rank of ensign. He
then returned to Chevrolet as Car
Distributor in Tarrytown, N. Y.
Mr. Keating progressed in the
division to such important posi-
tions as District Manager, Region-
al Manager, Assistant General
Sales Manager for Chevrolet Motor
in 1937, General Sales Manager
in 1945, and, finally, was appointed
to the position he now holds in 1949.
Mr. Keating's talk was concerned
with the opportunities afforded
students possessed of an equally
balanced academic and technical
training. Often references to in-
cidents from his own diversified
experience in the automotive in-
dustry were made to illustrate the
importance of the seemingly triv-
ial requirements for one to succeed
in a particular field of endeavor.
In a question-and-answer period
following the dinner, Mr. Keating
answered many questions ranging
from the distribution problems of
automobile manufacturers to the
future trends in automotive en-
gineering. He displayed a broad
knowledge of all these topics, and
kept the audience in a highly-
receptive mood by his continued
interjections of typical Irish wit.
In the culinary line, the evening
featured a fried chicken dinner,
served home style. The hundred-
odd Tech Club members in attend-
ance partook heartily of the large
servings, and displayed all-round
satisfaction at the well-run pro-
Among other guests Present

ment, and Mr. Brown of the Eng-

Loan Fund Sei' Up
for GMI Students
The Operations Policy Commit-
tee of GMI last month instituted
the General Motors Institute Stud-
ent Loan Fund. It was established
at the direction of the General
Motors Corporation in accordance
with its policy of offering young
men a better chance to further
their education in institutions of
higher learning. The fund is ad-
ministered by the Executive Com-
mittee of the Board of Regents.
The fund was organized to meet
a long-recognized need of provid-
ing financial aid to students of this
school who by reason of some
emergency or dependency obliga-
tions have been forced to discon-
tinue their studies. It is also aimed
at the prospective applicant who
hesitates in entering the school be-
cause of similar conditions.
Assistance is available to all
students currently enrolled in the
co-operative Engineering or Busi-
ness Administration Programs, or
who are qualified applicants to
these programs. The Institute
Registrar, members of the faculty,
or students themselves may bring
attention to the need of some
student for assistance. Loans are
given on short term basis or are
granted for the entire four-year
program. Liberal provisions are
made for repayment.
With such a program in effect,
students of the co-operative pro-
grams are assured that they need
not forfeit their right to better
themselves because of unfortunate
situations or contingencies which
arise out of the needs of their de-
The TeChl1iCi3Il Presenting Arn Andres
By DON SCHOSTEK
One of the greatest qualities of
a real leader is his willingness to
work, not for the reputation to be
obtained, but in the interest of
others. This is a quality which Arn
Andres possesses. Coupled with
many others, it has earned him the
admiration and respect of every-
one who has met him and worked
Arn is a native Detroiter and
has resided there all his life. He
attended Wilbur Wright Technical
High school and worked as an ap-
prentice tool designer after his
graduation in June of 1945. In
his off-hours he was an itinerant
salesman of various lines of com-
In 1946 he joined the U. S. Air
Force and became attached to the
Public Relations Section. Of-
ficially classined as an Information
Specialist, he served as a Staff
Editor for the Pacific Stars and
Stripes, the official Armed Forces
publication. He also edited a daily
newspaper on Okinawa for all
branches of the service. Upon re-
turning to the United States, Arn
reorganized the publication serv-
ice at Selfridge Air Force Base in
Mt. Clemens, Mich. During his
stay in the service he attended
various technical schools to gain
further experience in his chosen
field of engineering.
In 1949, shortly before his exit
from the Air Force, Arn was mar-
ried. Today he and his Wife,
Jackie, are blessed with a family
of two girls-Nancy, who is two
years old, and Michele, who has
been around only one month.
After attending Wayne Univer-
sity for a semester, Arn was sent
to GMI by the Detroit Tranmis-
sion Division. Today he is enrolled
in the Mechanical Engineering pro-
gram-Tool Design sequence. He is
currently a first-semester junior.
In his freshman year, Arn
worked on the Publications Council
as a layout man for the RE-
FLECTOR. As a sophomore, he
tained the position of Editor
the TECHNICIAN. In addition to
his concentrated participation
the Publications Council, Arn be-
came active in the GMI Manage-
ment Association, and this year was
elected president of that organiza-
tion. But his first love is his work
with the Independent Association.
As sophomore representative and
secretary of the Association, he
made outstanding contributions to
the furthering of the Independent
group at GMI. In recognition of
these deeds, Arn was elected pres-
ident of the Independent Associa-
tion for the current school year.
With all his activities and duties,
Arn has maintained a level of
scholastic achievement which has
ranked him well above the Institute
average. A family man, a student,
a promoter of extra-curricular
activities, he is a person very much
respected by the students of GMI.
JET ENTHUSIASTS SE
The idea of forming a Rocket
Club was originally conceived in
October of 1951. Robert Wydra
and Don Gates, founders of the
club, received promising response
to a tentative enrollment sheet and
proceeded to employ the talents of
Mr. Ruddock as faculty advisor.
Meetings consisted of project
assignments, theory presentation,
and discussion. Reaction engines,
the members feel, are laying the
foundations for a great future in
For a iirst project, a basic jet
engine of utmost simplicity was
discussed and constructed. Pro-
gressively complex engines are
scheduled for future presentation.
Field trips have been proposed
for the testing of these engines.
Results will be noted and presented
in future meetings with an eye
toward improved design and per-
formance. The final goal of the
GMI Rocket Club is to build com-
plete testing facilities for the

Works as a machinist apprentice.
He graduated as a machinist and
practiced the trade for a while.
This experience endowed him with
the practical knowledge and ma-

these abilities he appeared as an
instructor in the machine shop at
GMI and has been here for 10
Following this jaunt through
life with him is his wife, whom he
met and married in Lansing. To-
gether they came to Flint and the
Institute. Although they now re-
side here, they spend many week
ends in their home town.
Though he has no major hobbies,
Mr. Cherry enjoys working around

PSP-Phi Sigma Phi has pledged six new men into the fraternity. They
are Sam Grice, Bud Moyer, Charles Joe Bach, Parker Lorton, Tony
Giardina, and Bert Martens.
There are two kings at Phi Sig. Bill Lawless and Fred Pletzker

No big house improvements were accomplished this section,
although work was begun on remodeling the basement shower rooms.
The bare concrete walls are to be finished in tile and a new ceiling
is to be put in.
WE-In due respect to the weather, all house improvements were made
on the inside. These included building a new food locker in the base-
ment and cleaning and painting the rooms.
This was a very special section for four of the men. Don Hartley,
Jim Anton, Earl Seeber, and Roy York were formally initiated into
the ranks and were honored at a dinner held at Gross Point Inn.
Six men were formally pledged into the fraternity, Jan. 15. In-

the largest class ever to start out in pledgeship to Phi Tau Alpha.

of the third week. The person honored by this occasion was none
other than the late General Robert E. Lee. The theme of the gath-

Frank Allen, and Edward Childs. Wayne Cerveny, Jack Federhart,

A calendar house party was held Saturday of the second week.
Admission was granted to the Gilgals and their guests only upon
presentation of a calendar. An unusual entertainment program was
presented by Chuck Barber and Joe Manfredo. Following this an
award was given to the contributor of the most interesting calendar.
The occasion was brightened by the announcement of Dick Smith's
coming marriage to Lillian Trubey, April 12. Best wishes to Gilgal's
brother and his bride-to-be.
AGU-The arrival of 1952 at Delta Chapter saw many changes in
both the Chapter house and the men. Everyone felt a little inspired
after the Christmas party, at which 25 underprivileged Flint children
were treated to games and gifts of clothing and toys.
Six new members were initiated this month. These men went
through a new type of informal initiation which has been instituted
at the Delta Chapter. It replaces the outmoded initiations of the past
with one based on sound principles designed to accomplish some
Constructive end. Thirteen new men were pledged to AGU, Jan. 13.
AD-It's getting so crowded that a guy has to go outside to change
his mind at AD. Nine houseguests and fifteen pledges bring the total
to 42 men living in the house.
The basement has been repainted, the oflice and sleeping porch
entrance rebuilt, and a great deal of plumbing repaired and installed.

There is no doubt in the minds
of any student that the Athletic

handling what was perhaps the
largest sports program held at
GMI in a good while. Twenty-five
teams entered the basketball tour-
ney, 11 bowling teams were spon-
sored, and the participation in the
basketball shoot was extremely
gratifying. The Council Went be-

this one actually made one feel a
sense of admiration and respect
for the co-operative efforts of
students to plan for themselves a
truly great climax for a month's
activities. The GMI Band offered
a few selections, the Chairman of
the Athletic Council was intro-
duced, and all participants in the
game were introduced. The honor
to play in such a surrounding was
something pointed for by all teams,

school gym, Jan. 18. Those at-
tending selected the queen from
the girls present at the dance. The
GMTE sponsored mixer dance was
held following the coronation cere-

fair lady raced for her choice of
a partner for the dance to follow,
that was the "Queen's Choice."

Banging out a sizzling 9471-pin
total over 12 games, Re Kappa Tire
swept into the lead during the last
two weeks and stayed on top of
the 11-team field to win Section
BC'c annual bowling tournament.

fourth, respectively, but a margin
of 446 pins separated White Ele-

three over the coveted 200 mark.
He copped high game with 229 and
high four-game series with 804.
Phi Sig led the field at the end
of the first week, with Re Kap only
15 sticks behind. From then on

of ball, the Pendents surged to an
early lead and were never over-
taken as they continued to a de-
cisive 39-34 win. Gary Slater hit
for a total of 14 points.
Chev Tech had three straight
wins before being dropped by Re
Kap. Led by Harry Schaal and
Ronnie Johnson, they triumphed
over the Gamma Mu Juniors No. 1,

OF TECH CLUBBERS
Mr. John F. Gordon, Vice-Presi-
dent of General Motors Corpora-
tion and Group Executive in charge
of Fisher Body and BOP Assembly
Divisions, was the guest speaker at
the Tech Club's monthly dinner,
which took place in the school
cafeteria, Feb. 12.
Mr. Gordon spoke on primary
reasons for the success or failure
of the individual in industry. He
stated that more people fail to ad-
vance because of personal char-
acteristics than because of de-
ficiencies in technical knowledge.
The subject of the young man
preparing himself for a career was
also covered. Mr. Gordon pointed
out that, all too often, young peo-
ple fail to take an interest in cur-
rent national and world affairs.
He stated that this is a part of
every individual's duty and an
essential of good citizenship.
In the question-and-answer pe-
riod, Mr. Gordon discussed many
topics, ranging from the theory
behind Henry J. Taylor's news pro-

MANIA 'frdm HEAVEN
By TOM MOONEY
Those students who pine for the
pines, or those who are absent
from the Appalachians, or those
who reside in the Rockies need
only step back approximately one
mashie shot from the north parking
lot to have a glimpse of home. For
there, in all its idiotic splendor,
lies an exact replica of several
mountain ranges in one, complete
with rock, snow, rivers, lakes, and
wild animals. The wild animals,
with their otherwise completely
composed countenance, are stud-
ents holding their aching sides and
rocking with laughter at the latest
debacle. The "coup" of the yearg
a marvelous case of muddled
During Christmas, while we were
absent from our Alma-Mom in
body but not in spirit fyakl, Flint
suffered one of its lighter snow-
falls-about 36 or 37 feet. What
to do with the snow on the parking
lots? This was the question of
the year. "Dump it on the newly-
planted grass which cost us several
thousand dollars just this fall and
then we will be able to replant it,"
was the cry. And dump they did.
The objective of this move is un-
known. At least no one will admit
they know. But by projecting our
thoughts to encompass the "big
plan" we can see that it was to
provide the underprivileged chil-
dren of the Garage Mechanics with
a pool in which to swim. After
all, we already have one baseball
diamondg why not turn the other
into an eternal mud puddle? It
will give THE TECHNICIAN SOITIQ-
thing to talk about, if nothing else.
The Spotlight Falls on JIM GRIERSON Monthly Mutterings
By JOE MANFREDO By BLAIR CAPLINGER
Every once in a long while the
student body is favored by the
appearance of one like James H.
Grierson, Jr., among its ranks. It
was in North Tarrytown, N. Y.,
fthe Empire State, according to
Jimj that he made his entrance
into the Grierson family. That
date, Feb. 20, 1931, must have
been held in veneration by the
North Tarrytown schooling system,
for Jim made memorable achieve-
ments in both North Tarrytown
elementary and high schools. The
basketball skill which won him
local recognition was cultivated
by extensive practice sessions,
often alone, behind the town's
library. There, with the aid of a
neighbor's basketball apparatus,
Jim whiled away his after-school
Even then, Jim exhibited an ag-
gressive interest and ability in
leadership in the school's general
September of 1949 meant Tech's
gain and Tarrytown's loss. In that
year Gilgal made its bid for Jim
Grierson and won him to its
brotherhood. He soon became
active in the Athletic Council, first
as athletic representative of his
fraternity, and later as an assist-
ant to the managers. In 1951,
Jim, now known as "Hooper," be-
came a council manager and
pledgemaster at Gilgal. By this
time he had established himself as
an outstanding leader in the
fraternity's basketball, softball,
and other sports activities. It was
only natural that Jim should take
the Athletic Council Chairmanship
for 1952, and thereby become a
member of the Executive Council.
His plant recognized these abil-
ities by appointing him as its rep-
resentative to the Tech Club.
The General Manufacturing Se-
quence of the Industrial En-
gineering course proved to be Jim
Grierson's choice. He intends to
finish his fifth year and aim for
advancement at the Chevrolet-
Tarrytown Plant which sponsors
Inspiration for "Hooper's" am-
bitions resides mainly in Miss Bar-
bara Hatzman, also of North Tar-
rytown. It was at the high school
senior ball that they first met, and
a steady companionship has existed
ever since. To quote Jim, "She is
part of my future plans."
When meeting Jim Grierson off
the basketball court or softball
diamond, one is impressed by the
easy-going quietude of this boy
who holds the Gilgal houseman-
ager's key, Athletic Council man-
ager's key, and is due for an
Executive Council key.
Jim's sincerity immediately in-
duces friendship and trust. He is
conscientious about his work, as
well as his sportsmanship. In all
things it can be said, "He gives of

Of late, GMI has been keeping the medical department at Chevrolet
busy just X raying and soothing the wounds of our athletes injured on
the hardwood floor. There are two chief causes for this highly un-
desirable condition. The first lies with the referees, and the other deals
with the individual gladiators themselves.
Fellows who do not know the rules of the game should never put
whistles in their mouths. Likewise the timid soul, who thinks he is
doing a gross injustice by calling a foul, should never don a striped
shirt. The guy who referees the game is the controller of the pro-
ceedings. He can make it into a game or a slug-fest. It is his duty
to maintain order, for through his blunders, he can easily cause a few
The second cause involves the frames of mind of the individual
players. A player who wants to play cleanly can play cleanly. It
takes a certain amount of skill to play cleanly-to play recklessly re-
quires only an absence of care for personal safety. Unless we do some-
thing quickly to improve the general trend of local basketball wars,
someone is going to be seriously injured. Let's not let that happen.
Good fortune never ceases to
appear at GMI. First, we had the
GMI loan fund set up to aid those
students who are having financial
difficultiesg and now we have the
GMTE card loan system. The pur-
pose behind the first loan set up
is clear and valuable. The purpose
behind the second system is not.
From this angle it seems to be
an aid to those who are not affil-
iated with GMI. It's an open in-
vitation for them to attend the
GMTE social functions as well as
to use the recreational facilities
which are offered by the GMTE.
The GMTE is an organization es-
tablished for the benefit and use
of Tech students. Your passport
to the activities presented by the
GMTE is your GMTE card. Since
you paid your hard-earned cash
for the privileges which it pro-
vides, you should be the person to
use those privileges. Are you one
who would give away money? You
probably aren't, so then don't loan
your GMTE card to, anyone. Use
it yourself and gain the benefits
which the GMTE offers.
Some details pertaining to guest
attendance at GMTE functions
may help to clarify the powers of
your GMTE card. You are per-
mitted to bring two guests to the
Social Council dances. You are
also permitted to have one guest
with you while you are using
GMTE athletic equipment. How-
ever, it must be understood that
your guest will come into the
school with you and that he will
leave when you leaveg and that
you will assume full responsibility
for his actions while he is within

Tales of woe are being heard
from the Student Relations depart-
ment because people are changing

In keeping with the policy of
having one dinner meeting a
month, the American Management
Association of GMI gathered at the
YWCA cafeteria Thursday of the
third week. Guest speaker at the
meeting was Mr. H. T. Gierok,
supervisor of Labor Relations of
General Motors Central Oiiices.
Many students who were not mem-
bers of the club but who had a
keen interest in labor relations,
attended the dinner.
Next month the AMA will start
a drive for new members, as well
as renewing the memberships of
those currently in the club. Mem-
bers are entitled to a copy of the
American Management Associa-
tion's monthly publication.
The past month was one of more
than moderate activity for the!
Newman Club. First of the many
activities was a roller-skating'
party held at Flint Park Thursday
of the first week.
The Communion breaUast, which
was held the following Sunday at
St. Michael's church, was attended
by close to thirty members. That
same afternoon several of the
members journeyed to East Lan-
sing to attend an open house held
by the Newman Club of Michigan
Highlighting the social scene
was the Valentine day dance held

The forty-eight members of the
graduating dealer class held a busi-
ness meeting Feb. 6. At this meet-
ing the decision was made to or-
ganize an alumni association which
would continue the friendships de-
veloped during the past two years.
The main purpose of the club is
to keep all members informed as
to the whereabouts and progress
of each other. This contact will
provide a means of arranging for
class reunions in the future. This
is the first class to organize a club
of this kind.
In forming the association, of-
ficers elected were Jay Tarlou
president, Douglas Drum vice-
president, Thomas Victory secre-
tary, and Jay Donovan treasurer.
The oiiicial title of the club is the
Dealer Alumni Association of GMI,
Class of February, 1952.
The individual who has the job
of keeping the organization intact
is Mr. L. A. Mitchell of Product
Service Department. Mr. Mitchell
has a big job to handle and hats

I-F BALL SATURDAY NIGHT
Approximately three hundred
men, representing all eight GMI
fraternities, are at present welcoming sweethearts to Flint in anticipa-
tion of the annual sweetheart ball, which will take place in the school
gymnasium from 9:30 to 1:30, Saturday, Feb. 23.
For the past several years, the Inter-Fraternity Council has spon-
sored the Ball, importing first-class entertainers such as Hal McIntyre
and his 15-piece orchestra, who will be featured this year.
The highlight of the evening will be the crowning of the queen
during intermission. One previously-selected candidate from each
house will be judged by the patrons of the dance on the basis of
poise, personality, charm, and beauty. The candidate with the highest
point total will be crowned Queen of the Ball, with the two closest
'runners-up serving as attendants.
SNOWS AND BEAUS
THEMES FOR DANCES
The two dances sponsored by the
Social Council this month were
scenes of gay couples, ignoring
the intellectual setting of GM
Tech, and enjoying the music of
Brahm Ward and his orchestra.
The theme for the first dance,
t'Winter Wonderland," was sug-
gested by the various posters dis-
playing appropriate song titles,
with backgrounds in black and
white silhouette. During inter-
mission, onlookers were enter-
tained by a quartet composed of
Chuck Barber, Joe Manfredo,
George Mekker, and Don Schostek.
An opportunity was given for
guests to participate in the "March
of Dimes." Response was re-
ceived, not only from students, but
from their dates and other guests
The second dance of the month,
Friday evening, Feb. 15, took the
general theme of St. Valentine's
day. The name of the dance,
"Beans and Arrows," suggested
Cupid, who was noticed several
times piercing the hearts of the
fair maidens and their dates. The
unique decorations included varia-
tions on the use of hearts. A mixer
dance, directed by Dick Smith,
chairman of the program commit-
tee, mobilized the crowd of stag
boys to action.
A contribution to the program
by Roy Gore and Bill Thompson
was the pantomime of the song,
"I Know a Secret," the story of
a small girl and boy and their first
It was noted that attendance at
recent dances has increased ap-
preciably. Impressive numbers,
ranging from 550 to 700, have
made the Social Council dances of
Section AC their entertainment
Credit is due to the Social Coun-
cil for the efforts which provided
the type of dances and entertain-
ment witnessed in recent months.
As a climax to the coronation
ceremonies, the Queen will be pre-
sented with a bouquet of roses and
an alarm clock radio. Her attend-
ants will receive flowers and table
model radios. Each young lady
attending the dance will receive a
gold-engraved compact as a me-
mento of the dance.
A more extensive program of
decorations than usual will be a
prime feature of the Ball this year.
The contours of the gymnasium
will be altered considerably by the
installation of a false ceiling
about 15 feet from the floor.
Drapes will form a background for
the fraternity plaques, which will
be placed on the walls, individually
illuminated by floodlights on the
floor. The gym itself will be par-
titioned into two parts, each one
offset by a huge heart suspended
from the ceiling. Streamers will
be suspended between the hearts
and the surrounding walls. Another
will be placed behind the bandstand.
The candidates for Queen, their
escorts, and the fraternities they
represent are Joanne Baughan of
Flint and Tom Miller of Gamma
Mu Tau, Audrey Block of Burt,
Mich., and Ray Sundeck of White
Elephantg Ann Jung of Long Is-
land, N. Y., and Jack Federhart

ended with the furnace belching
clouds of smoke and soot over the
basement and the men sleeping
there. The'unlucky ones were ap-
proached several times for dues by
the United Mine Workers.
Chuck Luthe has been working
like a little beaver this month try-
ing to get the entrance to the
sleeping porch rebuilt. His ability
for plastering is attributed to his

By LINCOLN MILLER
"This should be a phantom line!
Make this center line darker!"
The freshmen soon learn the
power of Mr. Loode's red pencil.
He's quick to correct any mistake
the boys make.
Mr. Loode was born in Jackson,
Mich., but lived most of his life
in Kalamazoo. He obtained his
formal education in Kalamazoo,
from elementary school through
four years as a math major in
Western Michigan College. He
learned his present profession
while working as a part-time
draftsman during college years.
After graduation from Western
Michigan, he took a position as
principal of Scotts High school in
Scotts, Mich. That was in 1940.
In the fall of 1941 he came to GMI
as an instructor in mechanical
drawing. With the exception of
time off for a military leave of
absence, he has been in that de-
partment since then. His hitch in
the Navy was spent in the Pacific
Mr. Loode, his wife, Mary, and
their three children live in Flint
at present, but he is working on a
new home in Flushing. This is his
big project right now and has
rather overshadowed his enthusi-
asm for bowling and golf. These
two sports do rank high with him,
however. It was Mr. Loode who
organized the faculty bowing team
a few years back.
His other activities include mem-
bership in Phi Kappa Epsilon
fraternity and work toward his
Master's degree in Industrial Edu-
cation at Wayne University.
He is very happy in his work
here at the Institute. This is evi-
fdenced by his great willingness to
help his students.

300-pin lead in the first week, the
Re Kappers never had their com-
fortable margin reduced by more
than fifty pins. Alpha Gam, led
by Bob Swick and Chuck Garman,
proved the most formidable op-
ponents, and with the exception of
one bad week, were hot on the
heels of the champs.
Phi Kap, after a slow start, be-
gan to roll but their efforts could
net them only a No. 3 ranking.
Gamma Mu, with John Hoss and
Johnny Eblacker setting the pace,
copped fourth place in the tourney.
Re Kap's team was composed of
Wayne Graunke, Frank Schneider,
Del Tickel, Nick Montes, and Don
Schostek. Graunke and Schneider

Hurber En'l'er Finals
Basketballs flew thick and fast
this month as the 28 men who
signed up for the basketball shoot
tested their accuracy. Aspirants to
the title of GMI's most deadly shot
on the hardwood pushed balls
toward the bucket from six differ-
ent positions on the court.
Tony Zinicola of Gilgal, Al
Reddoch of Phi Kap, and Jerry
Harber of Phi Tau have weathered
the storm thus far, and remain to
do battle for the crown. Zinicola
earned his position by overcoming
Chuck WQST, Don Schostek, and

As AC section opened, the bas-

entered the championship contest.

netting 37 points for AGUQ and
Phi Tau over the Pendents, 37-295
Phi Kap drew a bye.
Re Kap then met and downed
Gilgal, 36-31, while White Ele-
phant, fiooring one of its strongest
teams in many years, dropped the
Gamma Mu Jrs. by a 53-32 count.
Phi Sig fell before Alpha Gam, as
Phi Tau gained the nod over Phi
Alpha Delt, led by Dick Pavlak,
dealt the humbling blow to the
Styleliners and the Gamma Mu
Jrs. before they encountered Gil-

his team valiantly but failed to
turn back the golden tide of AD.
The Pendents, last month's cham-
pions, bounced back from their
initial loss to defeat Phi Sig and
Gannna Mu. However, they had
the misfortune of running against
White Elephant, which was still
burning from a 41-40 defeat at
the hands of Re Kap. The Green

One of the hardest played games
of the month took place when
Alpha Gam and Phi Tau did battle.
John Spring displayed the ability
which netted him a spot on the all-
star team as he sank 17 points,
and led AGU to a surprising 39-35
victory over power-laden Phi Tau.
Re Kap and Alpha Gam, both
riding the crest of three-game win-
ning streaks, met in the final of
the winner's bracket. Del Tickel

Jim Wheeler to pound out a 41-

defensive ability as he held John
Spring to seven points, but no one
could stop AGU'S sparkplug, Bob
Swick, as he poured in 14 counters.
White Elephant and Phi Tau
played in the semi-finals of the
losers' bracket. The game was a
torrid battle all the way, with PTA
always managing to stay a few
points out in front. Elden Apple
put in 15 points for Phi Tau while
Jerry Harber, Bob Holden, and
Neil Carroll made 13, 11, and 11
points, respectively. Bob Bush
was WE's driving force as he
moved in and out of the pivot slot
and garnered 18 points.
The final of the losers, bracket
saw Phi Tau again meet Alpha
Gam, but this time the outcome was
a little different. The Blue and
White, supported by one of the
finest cheering sections ever seen
at GMI, battled furiously from the
first whistle, and emerged with a
41-26 victory. Jerry Harber
sparked PTA to a commanding
first-half lead, and they coasted
the rest of the way. Bob Swick
notched 10 points for the losers.

FLINT BOY SCOUTS i
HONOR MR. STOUT
Mr. Claude E. Stout, chairman
of the Mathematics and Engineer-
ing Mechanics department of GMI,
was recently elected as new chair-
man of the Genesee Boy Scout Dis-
trict, Tall Pine Council.
In the five years previous to his
appointment, Mr. Stout was active
as vice-chairman and member of
Troop 65 committee at Longfellow
Junior High school. I-Ie also served
as Institutional Representative.
The Longfellow Junior High Par-
ent Teacher association sponsors
two Boy Scout troops and an Ex-

and bindings1 is available at the
The Ski Club has a regular
monthly meeting which usually'
takes place some time during the
first week of section. Presiding
officer in AC section is Mike Hen-
kel. At this meeting the general
business of the club is discussed
and provisions made for the activ-
ities which the club will sponsor
during the month.
Aside from the Inain monthly
meeting, Ski Club members meet
every Friday at the afternoon
break to decide on last-minute de-
tails on the over-the-week-end
Weather permitting, on most
Saturdays a good number of the
club members hop into their cars
and head for points north. Some
of the Ski Club's favorite hang-
outs include the skiing grounds at
Caberfae, Waters, and Boyne
Mountain, all of which are in the
northern part of Michigan.
A recently-added attraction to
the Ski Club is that two of the sec-
retaries at school are taking part
in the skiing trips. They have be
come quite good skiers.
The Ski club is open to all Inem-
bers of the General Motors Tech
nicians and Engineers. Both ex
ports and beginners are welcome.
If you happen to just wander
through the Machine Shop Qespe-
cially directed to freshmen1 there
is a strong possibility that you
might bump into Leo J. Bigos, a
new member of GMI's staff.
This personable young man re-
cently graduated from Central
Michigan College and holds a,
Bachelor of Science Degree with
a major in Industrial Arts.
Mr. Bigos served in the Army
Air Corps for 18 monthsg 11 of
these were spent Overseas in 11
different countries. Apparently
his Wanderlust has not yet abated,
for he recently returned from an
extensive tour of Mexico and
The remarkable thing about Mr.
Bigos is his persistence in attaining
his goal, for he did not finish high
school until 1947, after his hon-
orable discharge from the Air
Mr. Frank Rizzardi has recently
joined the Management and Or-
ganization department as an in-
structor. Mr. Rizzardi, born 28
years ago in Iron Mountain, Mich.,
was graduated from high school
there and then attended U of M
where he obtained Bachelor's and
Master's Degrees in Business Ad-
ministration. He has worked with
the Ford Motor Company and the
Kimberly-Clark Corporation. He
has also been a faculty member at
jldaho State college.
Extra-curricular activities rate
high with this new instructor. At
Idaho State he taught skiing and
was an intramural manager. Ski-
ing, hunting, and fishing compose
Mr. Rizzardi's favorite pursuits.
As a prelude to the coming ath-
letic tournaments, the GMIA start-
ed the month by appropriating
funds for the purchase of four
sets of new uniforms. These uni-
forms will be placed at the disposal
of Independent teams playing bas-
ketball and volleyball.
A plant tour was conducted
through the Chevrolet Mfg. Divi-
sion here in Flint, Feb. 12. This
function was attended by 40 mem-
The tour proved to be a Inost
enlightening one. One of the high-
lights of the trip was the Chevrolet

in manufacturing circles to be one
of the fastest of its type. The

One of the things that this in-
stitution has been noted for is the
absence of rules which define and
restrict the actions of the students.
In the past, students have lived up
to this concept and accepted the
additional responsibility that such
a policy places on each individual.
Surprisingly enough, this policy
has worked to the advantage of
the individual in many easily-
This sense of responsibility in
the individual student has suffered
a sharp setback in recent months.
The effects of this seem to be
cumulative and they are reaching
the point where the breaches of
minor policies of the school are-
One of the responsibilities of the
individual is to notify the medical
department when he is too ill to
attend class. This enables the
notification of the instructors con-
cerned. Recently a member of the
Junior class was taken ill on Thurs-
day of the fourth week. He went
home without notifying the school.
As a result he was given failing
marks for his tests and failed in
several subjects for the month. A
phone call to the proper people
would have prevented the trouble
In a month's time, dozens of
books are turned into the lost and
found department. Of these only
2 small percentage are ever re-
claimed. Why? Are there so many
students who can aEord to replace
their textbooks and equipment
every time they are misplaced? Or
don't they know that there is a

Unfortunately there arises upon
occasion the necessity of contact-

practically impossible to locate a

ln his own words, his purpose
was to "Fall in love with the spirit
of youthful America, and to in-
spire his audience to become better
citizens and leaders. Although this
country is still looked upon as a
leader, its own leaders do not ac-
cept responsibility and honor. The
freedom of our heritage must be
regained. To do this, we must
learn what good ideals are, what
respect and honor mean. Be
somebody and show that you are
somebody. We can only do this so
long as we respect each other's
rights and follow good taste."
Dr. Schact emphasized the neces-
sity of good effective speaking.
One must learn to use his voice in
such a manner that people will
want to listen, the important
thing being the way it is said,
rather than what is said. He urged
everyone to learn to sing and by
so doing improve the speaking
voice and the capacity to put the
feeling into every word. He de-
cried the apparent lack of musical
appreciation existent today. His
singing was certainly impetus
enough to start anyone on the road
to a musical hobby.
Dr. Schact's philosophical mes-
sage was interspersed with stories
and songs. His renditions of "Some

I The spofngnf Falls on non SINSABAUGH I
By H. HELKE
Don Sinsabaugh, the six-foot-
four senior Business Administra-
tion student from White Elephant
Fraternity, has the distinction of
having participated in more extra-
curricular activities than have the
vast majority of Tech students.
Don started his trek to popular-
ity in his sophomore year by being
elected to the oflice of Sophomore
Representative and served for one
year as Secretary of the Executive
Don's junior year found him in-
creasing his school activities by
assuming the position of Vice-
President of the Inter-Fraternity
Council, serving as a member of
the Conference Committee, and as
Secretary of the Publications
Council. He was also pledged into
lthe Robot Society, further proof
iof his abilities since most pros-
ective Robot members are seniors
before being pledged. He also
served as House Manager of White
Elephant during this year. Unlike
former house managers at White
Elephant, Don failed to put in an
order for a new car toward the end
of his term. Rumor has it around
the fraternity that there's a large
sum of money in unmarked bills
around the house-no direct ac-
This year, Don reached the peak
in his ever-climbing extra-curricu-
lar achievements. He competed
successfully with 13 other candi-
dates to win the highest position
in the GMI student body, that of
GMTE President. Not being con-
tent with seeing Don hold one oiiice
of presidency, the White Elephants
elected him as fraternity president
for the year.
Don used his height to advantage
on the sports scene, participating
in basketball, volleyball, softball,
and track. During his freshman
year, Sinsabaugh won the high-
jump event, and has twice been
voted onto the volleyball all-star
team since that time.
Even with all these activities,
Don has managed to maintain a
51 QP average while at GMI.
San Bernardino fSan Berdooj,
Calif., claims Don as a local prod-
uct. This perhaps explains where
he picked up the mania of sportingi
brilliantly colored shirts in the:
summer time. During work sec-
tions, Don spends his time in Day-
ton where he co-ops with Delco
Products Divisions. He was one of
Delco's Tech Club Representatives
during his senior year.
Since Don has been so successful
in extra-curricular and scholastic
activities during his first 21 years
of life, we feel certain that he will
continue to accomplish any of his
future ambitions, and will be an-
other excellent example of a GMI
ISELECTIVE SERVICE REVEALS
Recently completed statistics
from selective service headquar-
ters reveal that 61.3 per cent of
the 19,571 students who took the
Dec. 13, 1951, test made a score
of '70 or better. Of the approxi-
mately 340,000 who took the first
'four tests, 63 per cent made a
score of 70 or better.
The criteria for consideration
for deferment as a student at the
present time is either a score of
70 or better on the Selective Serv-
ice College Qualification Test or
class standing among the male
members in the upper half of the
freshman class, upper two thirds
of the sophomore class, or upper
three fourths of the junior class.
Seniors accepted for admission to
a graduate school satisfy the cri-
teria if they are among the upper
half of the male members of their
senior class, or they make a score
of '75 or better.
A score of '70 on the Selective
Service Test, General Hershey has
pointed out, does not mean a
student answered 70 questions cor-
rectly, nor does it mean 70 per
cent. A score of 70 on the Se-
lective Service Test indicates the
same level of ability as a score of
120 on the Army general classi-
fication test. Only 16 per Cent of
the entire population of this coun-
JWY are capable of achieving such

on school when they have no idea
what's coming next . . . when they
don't know when they'll be drafted,
if they'll be able to finish school."
That's what the faculty are amazed
They are surprised that we aren't
reading newspapers in the class-
rooms, that we are doing home-
work, and that most of us are striv-
ing to get the best marks possible
But they shouldn't be surprised.
When, in the twenty-three or -four
years that this generation has been
alive, have we been able to tell
what's coming next? When have
we been able to experience normal
First there were the boom years
of the late twenties. Then the long
depression. Then with the out-
break of hostilities in China came
the start of the war . . . a series
of conflicts that may well be known
in the future as the "Second Hun-
dred Years War."
We are the "Missed" generation.
We've missed normal times. Of
necessity we've adjusted to the un-
certainty of the future. We've
learned never to know what's com-
ing next. We've learned to adjust
to the big "IF."
"IF nothing happens, I'll go into
"I'll take a course in Shake-
speare next year IF I'm still
IF . . . the perpetual "IF."
We haven't particularly enjoyed
this adjustment. Man is a funny
creature. Somehow he adjusts to
what is necessary.
Of course it would be nice to
what it's like to live in the
, healthy atmosphere of peace.
It would be nice to know that we
could choose our careers after
graduation. IF . . .
No, we don't read the headlines
in classes. We concentrate on our
homework. We have to. It's a
matter of doing the best we can at
the job we have at hand. It's 9.
matter of taking things as theY
Naturally every student wants
to finish school if he can, partic-
ularly the veterans who have had
their careers interrupted once.
We'd like to graduate, to get
started on careers, have fan1ili6S
and just enjoy living.
Sure we're worried. But democ-
racy is worth worrying about-
We'll take things as they come-

TWENTY-THIRD PSALM TO AN ENGlNEER'S LOVE
Verily, I say unto ye, marry not an engineer.
For an engineer is a strange being and possessed of many evils.
Yea, he speaketh eternally in parables which he calleth formulae.
And he wieldeth a big stick which he calleth a slide rule.
And he hath only one bible, a handbook.
He thinketh only of stresses and strains and without end of thermo-
He knoweth not a waterfall except by its horsepower, nor a sunset
except that he must turn on the lights, nor a damsel except by her

She openeth the package to disclose samples of iron ore.
Yea, he holdeth her hands onlY to measure the friction thereof.
And he kisseth her only to test the viscosity of her lips,
When his damsel Writeth of love and signeth with crosses, he taketh
these symbols not for kisses, but rather for unknown quantities

meeting Monday evening, March
Mr. Chayne is best remembered
by GMI students for his previous
appearance during Section AD-2,
when he displayed and spoke
on Buick's new experimental
car, the XP-300. It is a cumulative
representation of General Motors
automotive dreams. This assembly
will long be remembered by
students because of Mr. Chayne's
simplified explanation of the con-
struction and operation of the XP-
Mr. Chayne's schooling consists
of a Bachelor of Science degree in
mechanical engineering from Mas-
sachusetts Institute of Technology,
graduating in 1919. He later re-

Mr. Chayne delivered an inter-
esting and inspiring talk, and the
dinner meeting was thoroughly en-
joyed by all present.

A new club at GMI, The Morn-

week on Wednesday morning. The
sponsor of the club is the Flint
Chapter of the Christian Business-

All students and faculty are cor-
dially invited to attend H1950

The Social Council of General
Motors Institute played host to
more than 1200 students and girls
at two dances held in the school
gym during Section BD3.
The first dance was held Friday
evening, Feb. 29. The leap year
spirit prevailed at this affair as
Brahm Ward and his orchestra pro-
vided the proper musical atmos-
phere for "Bachelors Beware." The
girls were not nearly as bold as
the huge letters on the west wall
of the gym which spelled out the
theme of the dance.
St. Patrick's Day was previewed
at the "Irish Jig," March 14. Two
large green leprechauns guarded
over the affair from the far end
of the gym. The bandstand was
illanked on either side with an
enormous shamrock of gathered
green crepe paper, giving an im-
pressive fioral effect, while numer-
ous smaller shamrocks adorned the
rest of the gym. A revolving re-
flector ball was hung from the cen-

victorious over neighbor Michigan
University in a knock down, drag-
out battle of verbal barrages Fri-
day morning, March 28. in the GMI
auditorium. Resolved: "All citizens
should be conscripted in case of
national eniergency"' was the sub-
ject of the hour long debate, which
ended with two votes for the af-
firmative to one for the negative.
James Starr and Robert Steele
represented the Conquering East
Lansing School on the affirmative
side and Tom Murray and Merion,
Krause defended the negative fort
Michigan. Judges for the debatex
were GMI speech instructors Har-

The debate was conducted ac-
cording to the cross question
procedure in which the first af-i

ROBQTS P ESENTED AT D GE
Four Seniors and three Juniors were formally initiated into the
Robot Society, March 28, at the annual Robot Ball in the school gym.
The new Robots are Lloyd DeMause, Helmut Heuser, Walt Hubbard,
Harlan Koca, Dave Lytle, Al Metzger, and George Tozer.
Lloyd, a Senior from Cadillac Tank Plant, is President of Sigma
Beta Tau, Secretary of American Management Association, and Vice-
President of Alpha Gamma Upsilon Fraternity.
"Moot," also a Senior, is from Buick Motor Division. He holds
a Gold Key for his work on the Publications Council, of which he is

GMI Donates 88 Pints
The students, faculty, and staH
of GMI donated a total of 88 pints
of blood to the Red Cross, April 8.
This was the second time the mobile
unit has been to Tech this school
year for this section.
Out of the 88 pints, 12 were from
the faculty and staff, and the re-
mainder from the student body.
Particularly noticeable was the fact
that Phi Tau Alpha Fraternity con-
tributed 25 W of the blood donated
by the student body.

AGU Easier Guesfs
The highlight of the 1nonth at
Delta was an Easter party held the
third week end for children from
the Child Welfare Home i11 Flint.
Twenty children 5 to 8 years old
arrived at the house at 5:30 p.1n.
and were given a meal of ham-
burgers, ice cream, cake, etc. This
was followed by an Easter egg hunt
and a showing of comic films in the
game room. The Easter Bunny'
presented each child with an Easter,
basket, and the children were re-i
turned to the Home by 8 p.1n. Al
house party followed for the mem-I
bership and guests. Party arrange-'
lili-.':lltS were handled by Ted Plum-
mer and Tom Gorbatoff. i
Delta Chapter played host to the '
Fraternity National Board Meeting, I
March 30. Present at the meeting
were many members from Michigan
and out-of-state chapters, and the
national officers. Foremost in dis-
cussion was the annual national
convention to be held May 2, 3, and I
4. Convention arrangements this'
year are being handled by Epsilon
Chapter of Lawrence Tech. It will
be held at the Tuller hotel in De-
troit. Feature events of the con-
vention will include the stag party,
bowling competition, the conven-
tion ball, the banquet, and the
The Fraternity is indeed proud
to be represented by three-sevenths
of the 1952 Robot class. This out-
standing honor was bestowed upon
Seniors George Tozer, Lloyd De-
Mause, and Helmut Heuser, who
were initiated into the society the
first week of this section.
Phi Kap Splurges
for New Furnrlure
This past month has been a busy
one at Phi Kap. The big thing
was the purchase of a new auto-
matic combination radio phono-
graph to replace the old one. Also
new andirons were purchased for
the fireplace, which greatly improve
the appearance of the living room.
Forty new chairs were purchased
for use in the dining room to re-
place the old chairs which were
used in both studies and dining
room. This brought great joy to
the pledges who normally had to
carry down the chairs from the
studies for each meal and back
to their rooms afterwards.
Besides the usual general mainte-
YIUICQ, the work sessions included
Placillg a fan in the laundry room
and finishing the shower room.

Sports was among the highlights
at Gamma Mu this section. Dur-
ing the four weeks of Section BD,
the Gamma hoopsters worked their
way through two opponents before
being eliminated. The bowlers
from G.M.T. occupied fourth place
in the tournament. The outstand-
ing bowler was J. Potrubacz who
owned the tournament high four-
game average and high total pins
for the section.
The work details have nearly
completed a new kitchen layout,
replete with new cooking equip-

Two seniors graduated from
Gamma Mu Tau during Section BD,
4Jack Buerker from GMC Truck

Central Foundry Division. Gamma
iMu will miss both these men.

For their monthly social event,
the Phi Taus entertained their
dates and guests with a party at
the Bund Hall near Frankenmuth.
Despite the record April snows, the
attendance was almost 100 Wg . How-
ever, Paul McLear had a rough
time digging his car out of 10 feet
of muck. The half-time entertain-
ment was provided by the pledges,
the high-light act being a new ver-
sion of the "John and Marsha"
The party was in direct contrast
to the no-date affair held the
previous month with several local
sororities. This was a "get-
acquainted" deal held at the house
the third week end. It was an ideal
opportunity for the frustrated
freshman to meet the girl of his

The Independent Association of
GMI sponsored a "Variety Show"
April 8. Featured in the show was
the GMI band and three tap danc-
ers of the female sex. A turnout
of 150 persons, despite the beau-
tiful weather outside, helped make
the affair a success.
Last month, the Independent As-
sociation lost three of its top-
ranking ofiicers, all mid-year grad-

the year, the Association took up
residence in their own house. Pres-
ent plans indicate that 16 members
will live there. Ken Halter has
been appointed as manager of the
house. Since the fellows living at
the house will represent the
"voice" of the Independents, the
house is primarily to serve as a

G0 Il FRIDAY ASSEMBLY HELD
Friday, April 11, was Good Friday and a fitting service was held
in the auditorium at a special student assembly. The GMI Band,
Section A-D, opened the service with "Holy, Holy, Holy." This was
followed -by apopular hymn, "Jesus Calls Us: O'er the Tumult."
Burck Grosse took part in the service by reading the Scripture, Matthew
27:19-25.- The 'GMI Band then played the selection, "Come Sweet
Death" by Johann Bach. The Twenty-third Psalm was vocalized by
John N. Ranger, accompanied by'
Dr. David E. Molyneaux, pastor
of the First Presbyterian Church
in Flint, gave a very inspiring mes-
sage entitled "How Many Hands
Were Washed." He held the at-
tention of everyone with his mag-
nificent choice of words.
Following the message, all joined
in the hymn, "Beneath the Cross
of Jesus." Dr. Molyneaux gave
the benediction and then the GMI

A new interest group at General
Motors Institute is the Morning
Watch Club which meets each
Wednesday from 7:30 to 7:55 a.m.
Did you notice we said "A.M."?
A group of students felt there was
a need for a time when they might
meet together in song and medita-
tion. In looking for a group to
sponsor the meetings, they chose
the Christian Businessmen's Com-
mittee of Flint.
The CBMC is an association of
Christian Businessmen whose pur-
pose and aim is to reach across de-
nominational lines in making Jesus
Christ known as Savior and Lord
to all peoples.
The first meeting was held
Wednesday, Feb. 27, in the audi-
torium. An increasing number of
students have shown an interest in
the club since that time. A short
inspirational message is given each
meeting by a minister or layman
and special music is often present-
ed. Speakers thus far have in-
cluded Rev. Walter Lee Myers of
First Presbyterian, Rev. Archie
Graham of Marinatha Baptist, and
Mr. Harrie Moorehead, an insur-
Unlike most groups meeting at
the Institute, the Morning Watch
Club has no officers or membership
regulations and everyone at the In-
stitute including the faculty is wel-
come to attend.

by Vice-President Gloshinski, at-
tended the Ohio Valley Newman
Club conference held at the Uni-
versity of Michigan. They were
greatly impressed by the whole af-
fair, and brought back many good
ideas which will be put into prac-
tice in local activities. At the
final business meeting of the sec-
tion, nominations were accepted
for the ofiicers for the coming year.

Classes are held for students who

the third week.
Toured by SAE f
Power steering for passenger
cars was the subject presented by
Mr. C. W. Lincoln, chief engineer
of Saginaw Steering Gear Division,
to 42 members of the GMI student
chapter of SAE at a dinner meeting
held April 10 at Frankenmuth.
The dinner-meeting was pre-
ceded by a plant trip through the
Saginaw Steering Gear Manufac-
turing Plant. Groups of about
eight men each were escorted
through the plant by supervision
guides whose kindness, considera-
tion, and sincerity will long be re-
Mr. Lincoln's talk covered the
history of steering gears up to the
development of power steering.
He used various charts and draw-
ings as illustrations as well as a
cut-away model of one of the lat-
est power steering units. Com-
menting on the popularity of power
steering, he stated that although
they originally tooled up for 5,000
units per month at the beginning
of the '52 production year, they
are now producing 12,000 units
and are shooting for 25,000 units
per month-a 500 per cent increase
in production in a year.
Graduating from the University
of Illinois in 1916, Mr. Lincoln
worked for a while as a draftsman
and then returned to his alma
mater as an instructor. He served
during the first world war and
after 12 years with the Lufkin Rule
Company of Saginaw he joined the
Saginaw Steering Gear Division in
1932 as a Tool Designer. During
the division war program he was
made Chief Tool Engineer of the
Machine Gun Plant and was pro-
moted to Master Mechanic of that
plant, June 1, 1944. He was ap-
pointed Assistant Chief Engineer
in October, 1946, and in April,
1948, was promoted to his present
position of Chief Engineer.

Ah yes, Spring is back again . . ,
fand we don't mean AGU's Johnl.
Between snowstorms, one can catch
a glimpse of the early green in the
grass, the sturdy fresh shoots of
new plants, and the formation of
buds on the bushes and trees. Even
if you haven't noticed these signs
of Spring, surely you couldn't have
missed the spreading of the Spring
fertilizer. Rumors have it that this
fertilizer is a by-product of the
Industrial Engineering Dept., and
the only thing that puzzles this
writer is the fact that it's pink, not
With Spring comes that disease
-No-Studyitus Ccommonly termed
spring feveri. Just the other day
a couple of the boys were out at
the golf course. Their major prob-
lem fbesides wading through the
mudl was that of finding the ball.
It seems that when they were for-
tunate enough to hit the ball-
which wasn't too often-the ball
would land and immediately be-
come lost under some five to six
inches of mud. Oh well, the prac-
tice was worth the trouble.
GMTE Presidential elections also
highlighted this section. Every-
where anyone looked, Baker, Hub-
bard, and Schostek stared back at
them. This hotly-contested battle
really brought out a touch of school
spirit, something other than slide
rules, carburetors, and accounting.
Because of the staggering total
of parties recently held in Flint by
students of GMI, it can be stated
that the females of Flint are hav-
ing a grand time this section.
Of the "shows" being staged in
the halls of dear old GMI, one of
the most entertaining was the
series of small shows put on by
the pledges of the Robot Society

Their version of the GMI theme

their dissertations on some of the

Alpha Gam won the GMIA in-
vitational basketball tournament,
Monday evening, April 14, with a
38-35 victory over Alpha Delt.
A new sports event was added
to the roster of Section AD this
last month, with the inauguration
of the first GMIA invitational bas-
ketball tournament. The tourna-
ment was open to any club on the
campus, either fraternity or inde-
pendent, and a grand total of 16
ball clubs submitted entries.
First-round games were played
March 31 and initial action saw
the independent Sirens thoroughly
trounce White Elephant, 60-48, Phi
Kappa drop the Braves, 33-20, and
Gamma Mu fall before Alpha

breaker, 55-53. The Jets slipped

In the lower bracket, first-round
games saw the Meat Hooks edge

to the semifinals with a 54-45 ver-
dict over Phi Kappa. Alpha Gam,
led by Johnny Spring and Ted
Plummer, rolled over the Jets, 59-
46, to gain the other semi-final
berth in the upper bracket. Fes-
tivities were in full swing' in the
lower bracket as well, with Gilgal
for Paddle Crown
Thirty-two men signed up as en-
trants in the Section AD individual
ping pong tournament. After two
weeks of hotly-contested action, the
field has been pared down to four
semifinalists. These men will meet
this week to determine who will
cop the individual crown.
In quarterfinal results, Brennan
beat Mobley, Paul won out over
Dodisman, Verstraeten trounced
Heinlen, and Waller slipped past
John Spring. The pairings for the

The semifinalists met April 4 to

The annual GMI swimming meet for Section AD was held April 7
at Haskell Community Center. Forty-six aspirants to the seven titles
were entered. After all preliminaries and warmups had been com-
pleted, Official Starter Emil "The Faker" Bair got the meet off and
rolling with the finals of the 25-yard free style. First place in that
event went to Pete Garfield, who was caught by the oflicial timer in
12.55 seconds. Second place went to Tom Gorbatoff, who was down
in 12:6 seconds, and third and fourth spots were taken by Roger
Mosser and Dave Trojan, respectively.
Second event on the evening's card was the 25-yard backstroke,
and in this event, the only school record to fall during the evening
was broken by Jerry Treat, who turned the distance in 14.15 sec-
onds, bettering the old mark set in 1948 by R. Stevenson
second. Second place went to Bob Simmons, whose time
and third and fourth places were grabbed by Mel Hall
Mosser, in that order. First place in the 25-yard breast stroke went
to Vercoe, who turned the 25 yards in 15.1 seconds. Following him
to the line was Treat, and third and fourth places were grabbed by
by .5 of a
Arbuckle and Dave Trojan, respectively.
With the distance increasing from 25 to 50 yards, the meet con-
tinued with the 50-yard backstroke getting first call. Proving that
the distance made no difference, Treat again copped the event, being
timed in 31.3 seconds. Following him home were Simmons, Hall, and
Mosser, in that order. Only two entrants showed for the 50-yard
breast stroke, and Vercoe had no trouble repeating his earlier victory
at an additional 25 yards. The other entrant was Arbuckle.
Pete Garfield returned to win the 50-yard free style, in the
respectable time of 28.7 seconds. Tucker Whitehead was second,
with Gorbatoft' and Sussex grabbing the No. 3 and No. 4 spots.
In the final event on the evening's card, Pete Garfield returned
to win his third event of the night, capturing the 100-yard free style
in 1 minute, 8.8 seconds. Tucker Whitehead again followed G9-meld
home, with Vercoe third.
The team title went to Alpha Gam, with all individual laurels
resting on the shoulders of Mr. Garfield, on the strength of his three

MSC in Debate
Among the first of the school's
activities this section was a debate
assembly held Friday of the first
week in the GMI auditorium before
a capacity audience. The subject
of debate, t'Resolved: that the
President of the United States be
Elected by a Direct Vote of the
People," was presented to the
students of the Institute by an af-
firmative team consisting of Rodger
Kidston and George Levy from the
University of Michigan. James
Starr and Robert Steele of Mich-
igan State upheld the negative side.
The judges selected for the occa-
sion were Mr. Roger Hamlin, Mr.
Thomas Calcerano, Jr., and Mr.
Robert Carter, all members of the
English and Psychology Depart-
ment. They returned a 2-to-1 ver-
dict in favor of the University of
After the customary introduc-
tions by the chairman, Bob Walker,
the aiiirmative team commenced
the debate by presenting its views.
In the cross-questioning which fol-
lowed, both teams asserted that to-
day's system of the Electoral Col-
lege is inadequate and unfair. As
a counterproposal to direct vote,
the negative team offered election
of the President of the United
States by Congress.
With the University of Michigan
Speakers contending that today's
voters possessed sudicient intelli-
gence to vote directly for a Presi-
dent, and the Michigan State team
Contending that this left the Presi-
dent unchecked for four years, the
question soon became one of
'fwhich system provides the most
In summary, the negative team
maintained that no legislative re-
sponsibility exists in todaY,S SYS-
tem, and there is no check on the
President for four-Year Periods'
They proposed the parliamentary

WALT HUBBARD, GMTE Preridenf-elert
Midsemesfer Freshmen Tour GMI
Section BC-4 brought 69 new
students into GMI. The new
students, their families and friends
were introduced to the school on
Sunday, April 20. Each new
student was taken on a complete
tour of the school by an individual
instructor. The tour had its begin-
ning in the student lounge where a
map Was displayed showing each
student's name, his home town, and
his co-operative unit,
The touring parties terminated
their trek in the cafeteria where
they were received by members of
the Administrative Committee. Re-
freshments were then served.
The attendance at the festivity
was 150. Thanks are extended to
the members of the Institute staff
and their wives who did a very
good job of making the afternoon
a pleasant one for all who attended
The total enrollment includes 24
engineers and 3 business adminis-
tration students in B sectiong with
21 engineers, 1 business adminis-
tration student, and 20 dealer
students composing the list of Sec-
tion C men.
Walt Hubbard was announced
today as the new GMTE President
by Bob Garney, chairman of the
election committee. Walt won the
highest position in the student body
by beating 13 other candidates on
the ballot. The greatest opposition
was offered by Don Schostek,
backed by the Independent As-
Walt has climbed the ladder to
the top by way of a year as secre-
tary of the Executive Council and
another year as its treasurer. He
has supplemented this with three
years of very active service on the
Social Council. Add to this active
membership in the SAE, Tech
Club, and Gamma Mu Tau Fra-
ternity. Then consider a 60 QP
average and you have a president-
elect of whom the students can
well be proud.
"Hub," as his many friends call
him, is an Industrial Engineering
student from Harrison Radiator
Division of Lockport, N. Y. His
home town, however, is Batavia,
N. Y. His plans are to continue
his training through the fifth year
program during which he would
like to work in the methods depart-
ment of Harrison.
Waltis personality includes a
great appreciation of music, espe-
cially Billy May's style, along with
a liking and natural talent for art.
Pencil sketches are his favorite in
the latter. Fishing consumes much
of the few hours he takes to relax
and be lazy.
Walt had only a small edge over
Don Schostek. Don, a Business
Administration student from Fisher
Body, Cleveland, gained support
from his activities as editor of THE
TECHNICIAN, athlete on the Re
Kappa Tire teams, and Junior Rep-
resentative of the Independent As-

At last there is an organization
to take care of the "hot rod" which
is so prevalent around GMI, for
during last semester, two enter-
prising members of the faculty,
G. E. Burchfield of the shop de-
partment and XV. C. Schneider of
the drawing department, together
with a large number of enthusiastic
students, founded the GMI Motor
Sports Club. At last count, the
membership exceeded 120 fapprox-

not, as yet, been recognized by the

are rapidly materializing.
Sunday, May 4, the Motor Sports

major activity. Starting in the GMI
parking lot, the 15 entries covered
fifty miles throughout the sur-
rounding area. All types of roads,
from super-highways to dirt, were
included. The drivers were spot

Fish Flourish ai' Phi Sig
The house of Phi Sig has re-
cently been put on an economy
budget. Pledge Master Ronald
Herman and an associate, Jack
Bachman, journeyed to the wilds
of northern Michigan in search of
sustenance for the house. Their
trip resulted in: Hrst, two sun-
burned and mosquito-bitten mem-
bers and second, approximately 80
pisces felix fcatfishj. Three oblig-
ing pledges, Tony Giaridina, Eysvo-
gel, and Parker Lorton relieved the
members of the menial task of
cleaning the fish.
Fred Eysvogel has recently start-
ed his pledgeship at the house.
Speaking of pledges, two of them,
Parker and Joe Bach, found it dif-
ficult to rise early enough to shave.
The members, being kind souls, de-
cided they didn't have to shave any
more. Results: one red beard and
one black beard.

foremen went out to dismantle

workmen and sixteen supervisors
were tearing the stuffing out of
anything in the vicinity. It took
five hours to tear it down. Now,
three weeks later, we are still
working on the foundation for the
new one. It was fun while it last-
ed, though, and what a bunch of
hidden talent was brought out in
that short time!
The big gray barn behind the
house has been exposed to paint
brushes. "Painted" is hardly the
word for it. There was a near
fatality involved in this project.
If Strawboss Jim Heim hadn't gone
over the job to remove the bugs
that landed in the fresh paint,
Charlie Rauschert, the smallest
pledge, would still be painted to the
back side. He's recovered nicely.

It has been noticed that those en-
tering Gilgal's house pause seve
moments to inspect the newly dec-
orated living room. Since its
decoration, during the first week,
new wallpaper now covers t
room. This has resulted in a com-
plete rehabilitation of its inhab-
itants. It appears that the new
color scheme renders a change
in atmosphere, tending toward
lounging and away from studies.
To study now means going upstairs
where the study rooms again offer
encouragement to "hit the books."
ai' Gamma Mu
This section started with a rous-
ing picnic for the boys of Gamma
Mu. It all started when the mem-
bers from New York and Ohio chal-
lenged the members from Indiana
and Michigan in a game of soft-
ball. The setting for the battle
was Potters Lake and the loser was
to cook the food. The game de-
veloped into a pitchers duel be-
tween "Slippery Spitballu Gamble,
from the New York-Ohio aggrega-
tion, and "Sly Curveball" Whitaker
for the Indiana-Michigan team.
Close decisions and lengthy discus-
sions frequently interrupted the
contest. After the dust and the
broken bats settled, the score was
found to be New York-Ohio 18,
After eating sand-filled hotdogs,
a general fun session ensued. As
the sun set, the Gamma Mus could
be seen going home to their lini-
ment bottles, happy but very stiff.
Five men were recently pledged.
They included Ed Baker from De-
troit, Jim Haley from Maryland,
Don Almquist from Indiana, and
Jim Schreffier from Pennsylvania.

One of the highlights of the re-
cent softball tourney was a game
175 played between Re Kap and a
group of athletic derelicts known
as the "Bon Vivantsf' The main
characters of this comedy of errors
were "Cannonball" Gilland, "Ra-
jah" Grimes, "Yogi" Bolda, and an
unknown first baseman known as
the "Polish Pulverizerf, The game
had many highlights such as "Can-

heroes losing the game. It was a
fiercely-fought contest throughout
with Re Kap squeezing out a nar-
row 12-to-4 victory. The game was
played under protest as the 'tBon
Vivants" were only allowed to use
nine men at one time.

to this column 1'?5 let's take a look

the Juniors 2 to 1 in a recent soc-

were Finn Halbo of Sweden, Bob
Perkins and Alan MacMillan of
Australia, Vic Gosney of England,
and Hans Gensert of Germany.
-In view of the current wave of
sports scandals among the leading
universities, we have uncovered one
of our own here at Tech. It is in
the form of a subversive group
sponsoring the Bus-Ad National
Invitational Golf Tournament. The
conniving in this annual affair got
so bad this year that even the
tournament directors got swindled.

side was retired. The GarlaI1de1'S

base as Don pitched himself out of

Neither team scored until the bot-

blasted an outside curve over Left-

two runs looked good until the
sixth inning when Re Kap tied the
score. Don Blyestone, leading off,
dumped a perfect bunt down the
third base line and took second
when Kessler threw wild to First
Baseman McDonald. Jim Wheeler
followed with a screaming liner to
right scoring Blyestone. Wheeler
took third on a wild pitch and
scored on Tickel's grounder to
short. That finished the scoring as
far as Re Kap was concerned. The
next inning proved to be their
Waterloo. With one down, Willis
banged a clean single over short
and scored when the ball eluded
Del Parrot in left. That was the
ball game as Re Kap went three up

Last month, Athletic Council
Chairman Jack Baker announced
that a new point system for the
Athletic Council will be used in the
Originally, anyone selected for a
position on an All-Star team or any
individual who won an event in the
swimming meet, track meet, "21"
shoot, rifle shoot, etc., was awarded
five medallion points. The Athletic
Council felt that any man who was
elected to three All-Star teams
should receive more recognition
than a man who has won three first
places in track or swimming meet.
They felt that he would be more
an all-around athlete, whereas that
individual victor in a swimming or
track meet would mainly be a spe-
cialist in that particular sport. So,
in the future any man who is elect-
ed to an All-Star team will receive
10 medallion points while the men
on the second team will be awarded
five medallion points. Also, the in-
dividual winners in swimming,
track, "21" shoot, etc., will receive
five points for each event won. In
addition, the men on the winning
team of any team sport Qvolleyball,
basketball, softball, etc.J will also
receive five points.
Features Robol' Ball
Tech's mid-semester Freshmen
were greeted April 25 with a rous-
ing welcome as they were exposed
to GMI social life. This exposure
took place at the first of two very
successful GMTE dances. The
first dance was entitled "The Pud-
dle J ump" and though the name in-
dicated a possible wet evening, no
spirits were dampened, as shown by
a total attendance of 600 males
The second dance was the annual
Robot Ball, held Friday of the third
week. The music for the ball was
offered by Brahm Ward and his or-
chestra and the evening was high-
lighted by the antics of six Robot
initiates under the able guidance
of one 'iDirty" Bob Garney. The
peak of the evening was reached
when the six Robot pledges were
presented with Robot Certificates
of Membership and Robot Keys by
Mr. Mobley. Entertainment, pro-
vided by the Robot pledges, includ-
ed two songs f?J, the GMI Alma-

thusiastic turnout of 30 students
heard Mr. Beck.
The Newman Club held its
monthly Communion breakfast at
St. Michael's Church, Sunday of
the first week. Following the
breakfast, a business meeting was
held. Activities were planned, and
nominations for officers for the
coming year were made. The same
evening, a joint dance with Flint
J. C. Newman Club was sponsored
at St. John Vianney Hall.
On Saturday and Sunday of the
second week, the Ohio Valley
Province of the Newman Club held
its Spring Oflicers' Convention at
Michigan State College. Accom-
panying the officers, five delegates
represented the GMI Club. The
convention was made up of a series
of panel discussions whose purpose
was to analyze the problems of an
active Newman Club, such as the
one here at Tech.
Newman night was held Wednes-
day of the second week in St. John
Vianney hall. The club has planned
a cocktail party for Saturday of
the fourth week of Section AC-5.
The purpose of the party is to
become better acquainted with the
members of Section D and to plan
events of the future.
SAE SIXTH IN NATION
As of March, 1952, the student
branch of the SAE at the Institute
had an aggregate membership fall
four sectionsi of 117 students.
Since that time there have been an
additional 26 applications for mem-
bership sent to SAE headquarters.
This membership is the sixth larg-
est in the country.
The major activity of the month
for the group was a tour of the
Saginaw Steering-Gear Division.
Following the tour, approximately
three-fourths of the membership!
and their guests assembled ati
Zehnder's restaurant in Franken-'
muth. Here the group had dinner
and then heard a speech given by
Hans Boeingher, Assistant Chief
Engineer 'of the Steering Gear
Division. The subject of the
speech was relative to the tour and
to the progress which has been
made in automobile steering over
the last few years.
GMIA GIVES VARIETY SHOW
The variety show by the Inde-
pendent Association was presented
May 7 in the school auditorium.
Ken Halter, who was master of
ceremonies for the evening, was
assisted by Jerry Hauser.
Some of the entertainment, pre-
sented by nurses from Hurley hos-
pital, included short skits, singing,
and hula dancing. Films of Abbott
and Costello were also shown. The
GMI "Tech Combo" entertained
with some dixie-land jazz and was
followed by "The Extension
Chords" quartet. They sang three
selections, "In the Evening by the
Moonlight," "Down by the Old Mill
Stream," and "Sin." Jerry Hauser
presented a pantomime entitled
"Drama on a Baseball Diamond."
CAMERA BUGS SNAP BOATS
The Camera Club was very active
as the bulletin board in the student
lounge attests. Both the Camera
Club display as well as the il-
lustrative pictures of the pulse-jet
rocket, built by the Rocket Club,
were taken by members of the
camera group. Also, every picture
which appears in THE TECHNICIAN
is taken by either President Alder-
man CSection Ci or President
Svihla CSection Di.
Present membership of the club
fiuctuates around 15 members, de-
pending upon the section.
The month's activity included a
trip to Kearsley lake at which site
the members implanted their tri-
pods and proceeded to record their
subjects: high-speed motor boats.

time non-cotip student.
Larry coijps with Research Lab-
oratories in Detroitg his home,
however, is Toledo. In the first
month of his freshman year, Larry
made 73 QP's, which is his low.

omore years, Larry took an active
part in the GMI band. He is a

during the coming year. Larry

Mr. Richard G. Deane
By LINCOLN MILLER
Whenever an article is written
about one of our instructors, more
hidden talent is brought to light.
This month, THE TECHNICIAN
announces the discovery of a
political prophet. During the
summer months, up until the pres-
idential election, this ability for
political foresight will be seated
before the television receiver at
the Richard G. Deane residence.
To be sure, the prophet is Mr.
Dabbling in politics is Mr.
Deane's hobby. His bread and but-
ter is earned by instructing the
seniors at GMI in the ways and
means of the Personnel and In-
dustrial Relations Departments of
their cooping plants. He has been
in the Organization and Manage-
ment Department since June of
1949, shortly after receiving his
B. B. A. and M. B. A. at the Uni-
versity of Michigan.
Dick Deane is a native of Flint,
having lived here since he was a
boy and having been graduated
from Flint Northern High School
and Flint Junior College. It was
then 1941 and the army was look-
ing for men. They found him. In
the army his job was that of Per-
sonnel Classihcation Inspector. In
explaining this job, heisaid, "I was
the guy who put all the civilian
mechanics in Cooks and Bakers
School and all the civilian teachers
in Field Artillery."
The army didn't turn him from
his education, however. Using his
years as a personnel inspector in
the army, he obtained his degree
at Ann Arbor and came to GMI.
The Spofliglrl Falls on DICK BRUNER
By DENNIS CHAPMAN and GEORGE TOZER
By looking over Richard G.
Bruner's record at GMI, one can
easily see that the phrase "dyna-
mite comes in small packages"
aptly describes this senior from
Dick, who stands 5 feet 7 inches
and weighs 140 pounds, started
right out in his first year on the
Social Council, proving that it's not
the size of the dog in the fight-
but it's the size of fight in the dog.
Other than his activities on the
Social Council, he also accepted the
pledge bid of Alpha Gamma Up-
silon Fraternity during his Fresh-
man year, becoming a member
early in his Sophomore year.
Dick's major project throughout
this year was the J-Prom, "Deep-
sea Dreams," and for all his work,
he was awarded the Social Council
It was during the Junior year
that Dick Bruner's organizational
abilities were allowed to shine, for
he then served as a sectional man-
ager. This year the J-Prom
"Rhapsody in Renaissance" was
Bruner's Brainstorm and at the
awards assembly he was presented
with the Gold Key.
During his Senior year, Dick left
the Social Council to serve his
Fraternity in the oiiice of Secre-
tary. He was also elected to serve
on the Conference Committee, Su-
preme Court of GMI. It was only
last month that all his activities
were awarded in summation
through his initiation into the
Robot Society, honorary fraternity
for students who have shown out-
standing qualities of leadership in
Cooperating with Delco Products
Division in Dayton, Dick is major-
ing in Time Study and Methods
and is enrolled in the IE-3 se-
quenceg Methods and Processing.
His organizational abilities have
also been recognized by the Delco-
ops, student organization of which
he has been Social Chairman for
the past three years.
Outside interests of Dick's in-
clude racing, ride shooting, and
magic. Along with racing goes
as pit work. He has a complete
garage at home with every tool
imaginable, from a screwdriver to
arc welder. As a marksman, he
tours the country with his dad,
competing in team matches and
competition as well as instructing.
Their latest achievement was in
winning the open team matches in
the regional N.R.A. tournament
last year at Bristol, Ind. As a
magician, Dick has a wide variety
of equipment and at one time did
about four shows a week including
everything from card tricks to pull-
ing things from hats.
In a short time, the force of this
little package of dynamite will be
lost to GMIg however, the effects
of its impact will long remain as
inspiration to those who follow.

eligible to enroll in college for
the coming year, and that he

to the local board as promptly
as possible his Selective Service

A total of twenty men have
been accepted for membership in
Sigma Beta Tau and Alpha Tau Iota. To qualify for membership in
either of these societies, the student must be in the upper 10W of his
class during his lyz years at the Institute. Other than high scholastic
achievements, candidates must be of excellent character.
Sigma Beta Tau establ' h d '
, is e in 1951, is the honorary Business
Administration fraternity at GMI.
The purpose of this fraternity is
to encourage and recognize scholarship and accomplishment in the
Held of business studies, and to promote character and leadership among
the business administration students.
Only two men were accepted into Sigma Beta Tau fraternity this
year. They were Kenneth Ahsmuhs, a Section D junior, sponsored by

Final assembly of the Rocket
Clubls pulse-jet engine took place
during the third week. Construc-
tion of the valves, tuned to the
resonating frequency, was also Cal'-
ried on. Plans for testing facili-

The thrust of the engine was ex-
pected to be around 416 pounds.
Three movie reels are on schedule
for the club during the month of
June and July. All three will pre-
sent the history of jet engine devel-
opment and their construction and
performance. These movies should
prove to be very informative and
helpful for all who see them.
The agenda of the club calls for
the study of the physical principles
of the rocket and jet engine in a
manner by which all members may
gain a working knowledge in this
engineering field. As a result, the
study is broken up into two parts:
the study of the theory of reaction
engines and that of the mechanisms

Fon SECOND STRAIGHT YEAR
As far as softball is concerned. Section A has become "Spring
section," and the order of the day is to beat Alpha Gam's John by
any hook or crook. Phi Tau Alpha earned the chance to meet him in
the finals for the second year in a row. Last year in Section AC-5,
TECHNICIAN headlines read the same as they now do.
Again this year, Ed Grabovac will lead Phi Tau against the in-
vincible "Springer." "Creepy Ed," vastly improved over his last year's
form, will have to down AGU twice to annex the softball crown, while
undefeated Alpha Gam needs only a single victory.
The Orange and Black of AGU drew a bye in the first round, and
met Phi Kap which had just trounced White Elephant 19-2 with the
help of Len Radionoff's one-hit pitching. For a while it appeared that
Spring had finally met his match as the crafty Radionoff held AGU to
three ru.ns in the first seven innings while PKE hitters scored three
unearned runs off Spring. Then
John took matters into his own
hands in the last of the ninth by
banging a homer to win his own
game. Spring whiffed 27 men in
the game while Radionoff sent 20
down via the strikeout route. Next
to fall before AGU was Gamma
Mu by a 7-2 count.
Phi Tau drew Phi Sig in the
first round and defeated them 6-2.
They then tangled with their arch
rivals, Re Kappa Tire. PTA scored
five runs in the first two innings
only to have their lead whittled
away by the seventh. Then in the
first of the ninth, Dick Corl
doubled down the left field line
and scored on a wild throw.
Grabovac put Re Kap down in or-
der in the last half to win the
game, 6-5. Grabovac then en-
gaged in a pitcher's duel with
Alpha Delt's Charlie Tripp and
emerged a 2-1 victor as John Turek
smashed in the winning runs.

off, PKE hurler, pulled a muscle
sliding into second and had to be
replaced. AD tied the score in the
seventh and went on to score 14
big runs in the fantastic eighth in-
ning to win, 19-5.
In the finals of the losers'
bracket, Phi Tau squeezed by
Alpha Delt, 13-12, in a nip-and-
tuck battle. Loose fielding by AD
led to PTA's winning counters in
the sixth inning, and enabled the
Blue and White to meet Alpha
Gam and John Spring in the finals.

AGU AND RE KAP
The mortality rate on ping pong
balls has risen to dizzy heights in
the past month. Chief contrib-
utors to the deficit of spheroids
have been finalists Alpha Gamma
Upsilon and Re Kappa Tire.
Led by Wee Willie Redman, who
was just last month crowned table
tennis champion of GMI, Alpha
Gam has defeated White Elephant
and Phi Kappa Epsilon. In the
match with Phi Kap which earned
AGU the right to face Re Kap in
the finals, only three singles
matches were necessary to annex
the victory. Redman, Bruce Barn-
aby, and Bob Lehman all defeated
their opponents handily, while
John Spring sat by and cheered.
The wards of Re Kappa Tire,
flying the Independent Association
colors, had their cause aided by
drawing a bye in the first round.
Their first match was against Phi
Tau which had beaten Gilgal in its
first tussle. Duane Heinlen and
John Roberts gave PTA two quick
singles victories. Then "Fearless
Jack" Stowe took on Ed Grabovac
and handled him easily to give
Re Kap the boost it needed. Del
