Hamlin Flinl, Michigan FOREWORD 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 college. 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 work. 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." - -I . x X, X .N'5fTWfi5 v Qt+YQVZZ!32liWm'5'fAIs'z GUY R.

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. 46 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. HARRY BRIGGS s 'X Q 1.-gr --.....,.x x Qg"S"' f , 4.5" lffbw, ,41 A I5-1-LJ?" Q 9' 'N' - , .

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- Iastic averages. 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- tek. 1 1 x When matters of high linance are involved-when GMTE Council budgets have been exceeded-the case comes up before the Conference Committee. Fortunately, thus far this year, none of the councils has exceeded its bucl- geo. The Conference Committee, com- posed of six students and three faculty coordinators, wields linal au- thority when matters in question are brought before it for final decision. The Committee also forms the top- level liaison between the school ad- ministration and the student organi- zation GMTE.

Tobias, Joe Foster. 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 GMTE activities. The Executive Council has met reg- ularly each month to carry on the business of interest to the Athletic, Social, or Publications Councils, with representatives from each of those councils, together with their advisors, meeting in caucus.

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 hawk-eyed team. 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 Handbook.

COUNCIL 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- ticipant. 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.

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. Tap Picture, Seated, L. to R.: Mr. W. Edington, Advisor: H. Car- ter: N. Harris, Chairman: T.

WWW, SMSV VIRG COMSA-Editor-in-Chief REFLECTOR STAFF 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.

LTA-,,,,,,,,,, TECHNICIAN STAFF "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.

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. 58 SKI CLUB 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.

This club was organized in the interests of those students who desire to learn about, and experiment with rockets and iets. Weekly meetings were devoted to explanations and round-table dis- cussion of the processes involved in the operation of the pulse iet, ram iet, turboiet, and rocket. The main obiective in studying these engines was to apply engineering research and analysis to the construction, opera- tion, and testing of working models. 59 Top Picture, Seated, L. to R.: G.

GMI MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATION The GMI Management Association provides means by which students interested in the profession of management can advance themselves in their chosen fields. The local chapter, which includes Engineering, Business Administration, and Dealer students, is a student chapter of the American Management Association, and members are entitled to receive its monthly publications. On the social side, members are in no way neglected. An annual outing is planned each spring. During the past year the local chapter made tours of Dow Chemical, Fisher No. 'l, AC Spark Plug, and Buick, and heard talks by such men as George Wright of GM Central Office and Raymond Sanger of Motor Wheel Corporation, Lansing, Michigan.

ANDRES President Headed by Arn Andres, the GMIA directed its activities this year to the Independent portion of the student body. Headline features of the season were the well attended variety shows, plant tours, and the annual members banquet. At the beginning of the year, uniforms were purchased for the various Independent squads competing in the intermural sports program. To develop well trained teams the Association inaugurated a single-elimination basketball invitational. The entry fees for this tourna- ment were used to purchase individual awards for the members of the two top teams. Another achievement of the Association this year was the opening of the Engineers' Resident Clubhouse at 527 E. Kearsley. This house is to be used as the focal point for the group activities.

This year, Delta Chapter of Alpha Gamma Upsilon left its teens behind and celebrated its twentieth anniversary at GMI. Festivities marking the occasion were held the night of the Sweetheart Ball and included the dedication of a new members' room. The party held following the dance, found many members and alumni there to help cele- brute. The annual Christmas party for underprivileged chil- dren this year saw twenty-four happy youngsters enioy- ing themselves and receiving gifts from Santa. At Easter- time, nineteen kids were on hand to seek the hidden eggs and receive baskets from the Easter Bunny in a party patterned after the Christmas party. The event looked forward to by all Alpha Gams, The AGU National Convention, was held this year in Detroit. Men from twelve chapters and alumni were there for the occasion. Delta is proud to have been selected as the host for the 1953 convention to be held in Flint.

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- tember. Twenty-tive new members have been installed by the fraternity in the past year.

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 house. After informal and formal initiation, a total of four- teen men became members of White Elephant this last year.

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. 1 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.

Ziff wwf' fV 4, 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.

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.

Much work was done, including remodeling the living room and lounge, the reconditioning of the recreation room, and the rebuilding of the back porch. Alpha Delta also purchased thirteen triple-decker sleeping hunks and added ladders. During the year, the social program was expanded to include six successful parties with a local sorority in addition to the regular monthly house parties. The an- nual Termination Party in August included an open house attended by Alumni and parents and friends of members on the afternoon before the Grad Ball. Tradi- tional breakfasts were also held following the Sweet- heart Ball and the .l. Prom. After informal and formal initiation, twenty-three men became members of Alpha Delta during the past year.

Knowing the beneficial results of cooperation among men, the council goes all out to promote this feeling. High on the list ot accomplishments each year is the Sweetheart Bull- Each fraternity sponsors a candidate, who in their opinion deserves the title, Queen of the Sweetheart Ball. The Queen for 51-52 was Audrey ubik of White Elephant. Earlier in the year the IF banquet lived up to expectations. Speaker for the evening was Wally Weber, great Michigan football coach. The group consisted of a presiding otlicer and two representatives from each fraternity, with a member of the faculty acting as council advisor.

Volume XII General Motors Institute, Flint, Michigan, Friday, October 26, 1951 Number 1 5 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- poration. 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. .4-...ta ,.,,..,,, GMI ENROLLMENT 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 Dealer students. 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.

All are Seniors and have been active in GMTE activities throughout their college careers. 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- ference Committee are H. M. Dent, the allocation of funds for the Executive Council master budget 'for the various activities of GMTE. The Faculty members of the Con- fenence Commitee are H. M. Dent, H. T. Kinley, and C. A. Tobias.

Virg is in Section B and co-ops with Process Development section in Detroit. He served as Assistant Editor of the Reflector last year, along with holding various positions with the Tech- nieian. Walt Collins and A1 Metzger were named as alternate Assistant Editors of the publication. Walt, a Section C man, is sponsored by Delco Products of Rochester, N.Y., while Al is in Section D and co-ops with Electro-Motive in Chicago.

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 freshmen! 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! not allow time, these their eight somewhat hour. We 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 chance. 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 the other. 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?" b --ds 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.

He then studied at Wayme University in Detroit, graduating from that school with a Master's degree in Speech. His teaching career was interrupted during the last war when he served as a pilot in the air force. Five years ago, Vic came to the GMI English Department. He added much to the department but he also subtracted from it-he married the department secretary. He lives with his wife, Doris, and -their three children on Sherwood avenue. When he has a moment from his regular courses and his instruc- tion in conference speaking, Vic indulges in dramatics and writing. He is working on two books of con- temporary fiction which lie hopes to have published soon. If they are as interesting as the author, he should have best sellers. Vic considers his job extremely linteresting because of the variety of courses and the continuous change of students. He likes the way the students give an instructor the respect he deserves.

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. Keys were awarded to the men who were responsible for guiding the organization to its 400-member standing. Those awarded keys in- cluded Sam Cole, Fred Niehoff, Bob Brackett, John Hayden, Ray Inglesbeg Andy Mooridian, Sam Kreeling, Guy Dudewicz, and Del Tickel. The Independent program for the '51-'52 school year shows prom- ise of really being a hit with the men of GMI again this year. A smoker with free cider, donuts, and movies started the snowball rolling. Many activities are on the docket, including last year's favor- ites-plant tours, variety shows, and hopes for new and better at- tractions. The following men will guide the organization during the next year: Arn Andres, Presidentg Bob Brackett, Vice-Presidentg John Hayden, Senior Representative and Treasurerg Don Schostek, Junior Representative and Athletic Chair- mang Dick Magnuson, Dealer Rep- resentative and Secretary: Gil Walter, Activitiesg Jim Wheeler, Athletic Chairmang and Burck Grosse, Publicity. All men who are not officially associated with a fraternity are eligible for membership in the In- dependents, the organization that has as its aim the mutual enjoy- ment of social, athletic, and other extra-curricular activities. Watch the bulletin board for previews of coming attractions. Schussbunnies Meet and Polish Skiis In the first meeting of the new Year, thirty members of the Ski Club were shown a film on skiing. The film was followed by a short meeting on the business of the coming year. Then to get the men back into shape again the skiis were broken out and the men went down in unison to wax them, in anticipation of the coming snow. MH- it... ' ' G IE AWARDS SR 5 -51 MJE lll' FRESHMAN SMO .Il Presentation of the 1950-51 GMTE awards to Section AC men was made at the freshman smoker held Tuesday night of the first week.

A stag Communion Breakfast was held the first Sunday of sec- tion at St. Micl1ael's church. This breakfast was well received by the membership and promises to be a monthly affair. A general meeting was held Monday of the second week and committees were chosen to organ- ize the activities of the year. On the serious side, Fr. Zipple, the Newman Club Chaplain, dis- cussed "Marriage and Secularisnr' before a joint assembly of the GMI Newman Club, J. C. Newman Club, and the St. John Vianney Sodality. The activities of the month were concluded with a Communion Breakfast at St. John Vianney Church, Oct. 20. It is again requested that all Catholic members of the student body attend the general meeting of every month or contact the of- ficers in section so that they may be informed of the activities for the month. Speech Club Offers New Acfivifies Designed to meet the needs and desires of GMI students interested in extra-curricular discussion and debate, the Speech Club of GMI is now organizing and orienting itself for activities in the coming year. The present membership of 12 men, with more expected, is headed by Bill Atherton, acting president. The Speech Club, founded last year, expects to carry on activities similar to those of last year. They included a debate staged in the GMI auditoriumg trips to the Can- terbury Club, Flushing PTA, and the Presbyterian Church for par- ticipation in discussionsg and a dis- cussion with a visiting Flint Junior College student group. -A 'Ron Clingmang while medallions ln Memoriam Clyde W.

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- tion. 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 stairway. 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 start. The new officers in Section A-C are Bill Brennen, Vice-Presidentg Rodger Moore, Senior Treasurer, Parker Bates, Treasurerg Dave Dershaw, Secretary, and James Land1'us, House Manager. Chairmen were appointed and Bob Leppelmeir, Social Chairman, promoted a hayride on the third week end. A large turnout insured a good time for everyone in at- tendance. This year is starting out as one of the best, and great expectations are in the minds of the men of Neome drive. 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- freshments. 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 accomplishments. 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 Frank Villani. 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 accomplishment. 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 starving. Through the efforts of Works Manager Ferrill Jeffries and Pledge Manager Chuck Luthe, the house duties have been done to perfec- tion. l 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 tile flooring. 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 of Rochester. 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. GREEKS 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- langer. 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. DRAFT BAIT? lRead Closely! By BLAIR CAPLINGER Have you taken the College You may be test on one of dates and not Qualification Test? 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- sible. 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. ia I .1 ,J R Q: Z ,Lui " it all Friday. Octo er 26. 1951 T E C H N I C I A N Page Five 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 bones tonight. 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 again." 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 IS 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- up sheet. 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 Badminton Finals 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 remain. 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." 4 H. 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- 14. 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 Gam. 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.

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 Department. 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 position 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 intermission. G-M-I Funny 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. :gi 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- ed ecstasies. NAMES in 'lihe NEWS First Lieutenant Walter R, Geyer, GMI Business Administra- tion graduate of 1948, has recently been reassigned as an operations and training staff ofiicer with Headquarters Fifth Air Force in Korea. He flew 55 combat missions with the Third Bombardment Wing as radar navigation ofiicer, for which he has been awarded the Air Medal with two Oak Leaf Clusters. 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 when the emcee from the Stop the Music show called the resi- 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 home is in Ironwood, Mich. He co-ops with Pontiac Motor Sales there. He is in Section C and is in his second year at GMI. He lives with Mrs. Betz while in Flint. f 2 ff -XX f' A ' Gyilifbf 5 it df fi A "X N X f E04 1 :CII ' YF' .

Michigcm, Friday, November 23, 1951 Number 2 GMI ENROLLMENT 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 new students. 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. DOW CHEMICAL 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 week. 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. an-sv..-L John F. Gordon Speaks af Tech Club Mr. John F. Gordon, Vice- President and Group Executive of Fisher Body Ternstedt and BOP Division, was the guest speaker at the Tech Club's monthly dinner held in the school cafeteria Nov. 13. 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- fConti1zz1ed on Page Twaj FRESHMAN ASSEMBLY SGENE F 50-51 G TE A M1113 The Social, Publications, and Athletic councils gave their re- spective keys to the men compiling the most points through various activities in these three councils at the annual awards assembly for Section BD held in the GMI auditorium. Don Sinsabaugh, President of the GMTE, presided over the as- sembly and introduced Jack Baker, this year's Athletic Chairman: Neil Harris, Social Chairmang and Bob Bolda, Publications Chairman, who gave out their respective awards. The Athletic Council gold keys went to Ed Bevan and Jack Bakery silver keys to Tom Ross, Ralph Parker, Bob Meshew, and George Council Chairmen Appoint 51-52 Aides Appointments have been made this month of assistants in the three GMTE Councils. On the Publications Council, Bob Bolda, 4 chairman, has appointed Virg Com- sa as editor of The Reflector and Dave Lytle as The Tec11nician's boss. These men will head the difficult work of publishing your school paper each month and giv- ing you a yearbook you can look back on in future years. Al Metz- lger and Walt Collins were appointed assistant Reflector edi- tors to assist Virg Comsa with his duties. To organize and carry out the various athletic tourneys through- out the next year, Jack Baker, chairman of the Athletic Council, 'has appointed Ralph Parker and Tom Ross as his able managers. George Boyatzies will handle the job of secretary. In the line of social activities, Howard Carter and Paul McLear have been selected as the Social Council's managers by Neil Harris, chairman. These men will be ably assisted by Tom Kordes, council secretary, as they plan and carrw' out dances, the annual picnic, and various other activities. These are the men who will as- sist in organizing and carrying out the activities of your GMTE in Section BD for the next year. Let's give them all the support they need to make this another successful year. Boyatziesg and outstanding ath- letic medallions to Ed Bevan, Ted Plummer, Ralph Parker, Tom Drew, and Don Heiler. Officials' keys were given to Don Baker, Tom Ross, Tom Yurkovich, and Jim Conway. In the Publications Council, a gold key was given to Arn Andres, silver keys to Bob Walker, Virg Comsa, Al Metzger, Bob Bolda, Archie Campbell, and Dave Lytleg bronze keys to Charlie Dabercoe, Bob Wright, Roger Mosser, and Keith Kelley. Awards earned in the Social Council were gold keys by Tom Kordes and Art I-Ianjeg silver keys by Neil Harris, Howard Carter, and Don Bakerg and bronze keys by Stan King and Gil Kelley. Conference Group Balloiing Completed As a result of the recent Confer- ence Committee elections, this year's group will be composed of Dave Schroder, Lloyd DeMause, and Al Miller. V The voting was conducted Nov. 15 and 16. A total of 219 votes was cast in the election. Although this Conference Corn- mittee is little heard of here at GMI, it serves a very important purpose, as it acts as a contact between the student organization, the GMTE, and the administration of the Institute. Acting as a su- preme court, it helps the Executive Council of the GMTE in making final decisions. Along with the three newly- elected committee members are the faculty members, C. A. Tobias, H. T. Kinley, and H. M. Dent. ' --'.A 51-.

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- muth. 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 major in Die Engineering. Neil has emblazoned a splendid name for himself in his years at Tech. by the editor .... A few days ago, several members of THE TECHNICIAN staff were gram. 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 year. 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- gineering. 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- He 1 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 Degree. .A ' f I' , VW ,.i,.-1' in -Q ' ' ...Hu Friday. November 23. 1951 E U TECHNICIAN Page Three 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 disadvantages. 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 belongs to. 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- n1cs. 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 a month. DANCE CLASSES HELD BY SOCIAL COUNCIL Two dancing classes a1'e now being held each Monday evening from 7 to S and from S to 9 o'clock in the student lounge. The in- structor, Miss Olive Moquin of the Bon Ton Dance Studio, plans to teach the fox trot, waltz, rhumba, samba, and some jitterbug, if time permits. The fellows have been dancing by themselves, since there are no girls taking the lessons, at least at p1'esent. The series con- sists of 10 lessons, available at a cost of S51 each, S10 for the series. Newman Club Elects Officers The Newman Club has started its year with the election of Nich- olas Smiciklas, Presidentg Leon Gloshinski, Vice-Presidentg Rich- ard Socin, Secretaryg and George Svihla, Treasurer. The monthly meeting of Section BD was held Wednesday night, Nov. 7, for the purpose of plan- ning the activities for the 1nonth, and to welcome new freshmen. Movies of the Notre Dame-Purdue football game were shown. A Communion Breakfast was held at St. John's following the 8 o'clock Mass on Sunday, Nov. 18. The breakfast was planned jointly by the GMI Newman Club and the Flint JC Newman Club. Later on 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. The Newman Club of GMI is a club of Catholic Culture and Cath- olic Fellowship, and is organized in order to deepen the spiritual, and enrich the temporal lives of its members through a balanced pro- gram of religious, intellectual, and social activities. If you are a Catholic, and not a member of the GMI Newman Club, come on down to the next club activity and become a New- manite! GMIA ELECTS OFFICERS The General Motors Independent Association completed election of officers this section. M611 GIGCISY-ld were Vice-President Bob Walker, Secretary Dave Ostrem, and Treasurer Merle Wertz. Arn Andres was elected to the presi- dencv of GMIA during Section BC-6. Activities this month included a variety show and an extensive membership drive. ...-..-...Q-5. N Faculty and Staff Increased by 21 Faculty changes have added 21 new men to the Teaching and Ad- ministrative staffs at GMI. Chief among the changes was the re- placement of the retiring registrar, Mr. W. T. MaWhinney, with Mr. R. I-I. Bechtold, formerly of the Management Department. Thomas Calcerano, Jr., Marvin Swift, Robert Carter, Eldon Kel- ley, and Simon Herman have been added to the staff of the English and Psychology Department. The Drawing and Design De- partment has as new instructors Kenneth Lehman and William Schneider, while Frank Crall and William Lichty have been trans- ferred there from the Product Service Department. Parker Green and Edward Polk have been assigned to the Indus- trial Engineering Department while Steve Cenko and Herman Swanson have accepted positions in the Product Service Department, Ed- ward Long in the Mathematics Department, and John Proeschel, Jr., in the Organization and Man- agement Department. Donald Heidenberger is a new Machine Shop instructor. Norman Looney is new in the Business and Economics Department while John Keehner has returned to the Science Department after a leave of absence. Former English In- structor Max Kelly and former Product Service Instructor Anthony Coscia are now on the Distribution Training Staff.

Having em- barked on another semester here at our wonderful Institute in the lively city of Flint, with its won- derful, invigorating weather, I venture to say you are feeling fine. If you aren't, then my advice to you is not to read any further. By the way, were you around school on registration day for the incoming freshmen? Ye Gads, that was something! One of these days, I'm going to discover just what connections the "Dealers" have, that they are al- lowed to register before the rest of the frosh. Ah, well. Until that time, though, I suppose we en- gineering and bus. ad. students will have to struggle along as best we can. I noticed that the fence on the students' parking lot has recently been painted, at the request of the dealers, of course. At the same time, through the grapevine, and from reliable sources, a rumor was heard to the effect that "climbing roses" are going to be grown on the fences of the parking lot so that the "Dealers" will not have to feel so ashamed to park their nice, new cars in our humble lot.

November 23. 1951 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." teflwifian Alpha Del'l'a 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. technician White Elephant 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. FRATERNITY LIFE? A PLEDGE LOCKS AT FRATERNITY LIFE 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- ticipating. 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 school and fraternities and it lays down certain rules to be followed by the fraternities, such as Q.P.'s required for pledging, rushing pol- icies, etc. Well I hope that what I have said will answer someones question on fraternities-these are the things I wondered about when I started school. Gamma Mu Tau 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- pleted shortly. Zerlmician Gilgal Gilgal elected Art See president, Don Wujciak treasurer, and Kurt Pfeiifer secretary for the coming year. Alan Hathaway is the new house manager. Zeclmicimz 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.

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.

But it still wouldn't have been a success if there were not the 350 men and 250 girls in attendance. The second dance, Friday, Nov. 16, was based on a football theme. The atmosphere this time was one of footballs, colleges, goalposts, and touchdowns. Those coming onto the floor found themselves' walking through a pair of goal-Q posts set at each end of the gym. l Other decorations included posters: and banners from various colleges, as well as footballs suspended in midair. I l Invitations were sent out to all! the local sororities and girls' clubs, which resulted in a greatly in- creased attendance. CAMERA CLUB The first meeting of the Camera Club for Section B-D of the 1951- 52 school year was held Nov. 7. A new membership record was set. at this time when 15 men joined the club. The officers of this year's club were elected last year. The presi- dent, vice-president, and secretary: are, respectively, G. Svihla, lzor, and W. Steinbruner. Mr.q 1 I sented a starlit atmosphere. Iti arouse the public against Greek letter organizations, it is safe to Say it laid an egg big enough to give an ostrich labor. However, the Interfraternity Re- search and Advisory Council also stubbed its toe when the chairman labeled the movie "Communistical- ly inspired propaganda" which would "give comfort to the enemies of our country." On the basis of a recent series of interviews in Minneapolis, it was found that the consensus of public opinion was: attitudes toward the fraternity-sorority ele- ment weren't changed a bit, and the "communist inspired" charge was ridiculous. In the entertainment depart- they would recommend it to their friends and the majority said the show was "all right," but Unothing exceptional." Thus it can be seen, the movie, "Take Care of My Little Girl," was given too much credit by both Greeks and anti-Greeks as to its persuasive powers. Another survey conducted over a number of years has established this fact: the consensus of opin- ion tboth male and femalej is that the fraternity is much more fair- minded than the sorority due to a lack of honor found among women that does not exist among men. This conclusion is revealing, since ,G.M.I. is non-coeducational. Women are putting up such a false front that men can't tell what they're up against. :lf 21 ll!

WINNING LOSERS' BRACKET 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 squads. FLASH-Phi Tau beat the Jets and Gamma Mu Thursday night. The Tau men overpowered the Gamma Mu team by . the scores of 15-3 and 15-5. On Monday night they defeated 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 Delts winning 15 to 7.

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. , Immediately following the tournament, an all-star team will bg chosen by the Athletic Council. Two players who have been outstanding in tournament play are Neil Harris of Phi Tau and Don Sinsabaugh of White Elephant. Handball Competition Termed Terrific The field is small, but the com- petition terrific! That just about sums up the Section BD handball tournament to date. First-round matches pitted Kramer against Hosea and Yurkovich opposite Zal- okar. Winchel and Weyciak drew first-round byes. Kramer de- cisioned Hosea and Yurkovich dis- played terrific form in disposing of Zalokar. Semifinal match play found Winchel opposing Kramer and Wyjack matching shots with Yurkovich. Yurkovich again came through easily, at times displaying the form that made him "Ohio High School Champion." GMTE PURCHASES SPORTS EQUIPMENT The Athletic Council of GMTE has taken another stride forward in its attempt to improve the ath- letic and recreational facilities available for the men here at GMI. The recent purchase of several hundred dollars worth of equip- ment for the Athletic Department was a big step in that direction. New equipment acquired includes six new basketballs, two new foot- balls, several badminton racquets, three dozen new T-shirts, and sev- eral pair of gym shoes. Twenty ball gloves were completely re- built. Tentative plans call for the addition of several sets of golf clubs to those now on hand. New softball equipment is also on order Athletic Council Needs Referees The Athletic Council has re- cently been decrying the lack of and officials. the reason for apparent. qualified to of- ficiate in one of the sports soon finds himself with many games t0 preside over.

Michigan, Wednesday, December 19, 1951 Number 3 STUDENT Mil STABLISHED Eli T GM! 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 liberal. 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 or candidate himself. A committee 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 01' student enrolled in the Co- operative Engineering or Co- Ollerative Business Administration Programs shall have the oppor- tunity to seek assistance to permit him to continue his educational ob- jective to completion if financial need arises. SW K DREW MR T0 BE ilhltii M ASSEMBLY Duiclds "dream" convertible, the XP-300, will be shown at a special student assembly, Thursday, Dec. 20. The car is a super streamlined sportcar powered by a 300 horsepower super-charged V-8 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 painted a Venus White and has chrome louvres extending down the The XP-300 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 for illustration. 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. CHRISTMAS VACATION All co-operative programs at the Institute will close for the Christ- mas period at 5 p.m. Friday, Dec. 21, and will reopen Wednesday, Jan. 2, at 8 a.m. 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- motive dreains. Because the car was hand built and includes so many new features, Buick has in- sured the car for one million dol- lars. Only members of the SAE were permitted to attend this meeting. Anyone interested in joining this organization is urged to contact a registered member of the SAE or Mr. Halvarson, the faculty ad- visor. This special showing of the XP 300 can be accredited to the efforts of both Mr. Halvarson and George Tozer, Section AD president- 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- jected in the proper proportions to prevent knocking during fast ac- celeration. A novel arrangement permits the Riviera-type back window to be lowered while the top remains in position. The top itself may be folded and removed completely and stowed in a compartment be- hind the seat. -,, I Q 0 ,Q Egret imiraha-3 for at ,J errg hrtatinaa ann at Qidztpnp :vein Par W- fs...-fi.-....-...4.., Page Two wuziw- -,4 -. ms Ir W ' s 4 If Q, , .

Their bid was accepted over all other pho- tographic bids on the basis of quality of workmanship, cost to seniors, and cost to THE RE- FLECTOR. In order to obtain the best senior portrait shots possible, it will be necessary for the seniors to go to the studio for their sittings. The equipment used by this firm is of a stationary nature, thereby elim- inating the custom of having the pictures taken here at school. The quality of workmanship made avail- able by sittings at the studio will more than compensate for the in- conveniences involved. THE REFLECTOR staff is current- ly setting up a schedule in co- operation with the Wheelan Studio to eliminate any congestion at the studio. All seniors will be listed in weekly groups, which will be post- ed on the General information Bulletin Board at the beginning of each month. The seniors in any one weekly group are requested to phone the studio C2-0111, ask for photo studioj, and make an appointment. Photos may be taken during any free periods, Monday evenings, or Saturdays, This schedule will go into effect Jan. 2. .111 .ze :i2i352iii5i5Q?' 152i22i252i2i2522.g:,:..izzeaizfifieiii. ,ii ,-aff''ifififiiiiiiiifieeeiezea2iii25eEsffi'2.2i" ,,. f ,,'e:- .-:1:e1:11::::::r:: ' :::::::6:5:?aI?'??drEErE EEEEEZL. , "wi . ball, and track. He was elected captain of the basketball team and vice-president of his Junior class. Upon graduation in 1949 he came to GMI, sponsored by the Rochester Products Division. 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 Phi Sigma Phi on the Inter- fraternity Council. 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. EDITORIAL 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 functions. MEET . . . MR. CARL F. nnown Mr. Carl Brown of the Econom- ics and Business department at- tended Pontiac Senior High school. After graduation from high school, Mr. Brown received a call from Uncle Sam. During his tour of duty, he was a supply non-com- missioned oliicer in the United States army. Also he took part in an army specialized training pro- gram in engineering at the Univer- sity of Maryland. Upon discharge from the army, Mr. Brown entered of Detroit and in sented a Bachelor gree in Economics. the University 1949 was pre- of Science De- The next year was spent at the University of Michigan, and, in 1950, Mr. Brown added a Master of Arts Degree in Economics to his collection. He came to GMI as an economics instructor, Sept. 18, 1950. Last August, Mr. Brown took as his bride the former Miss Marilyn Ann Rixie, in what we sincerely wish will be a long and happy marriage. In the comparatively short time that he has been here at GMI, Mr. Carl F. Brown has made his name a name to be proud of, having es- tablished himself as a good in- structor and a "darned good egg."

Dec. 19. 1951 T E C H N I C I A N Page Three Needy Children MPM Delia Enlerfained by AGU 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 best. 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 recitation. 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- mas. Gilgal The week end between months of this school period found us en- l0ying a house party. Many of the house guests, pledges, and members invited friends and a hearty time was had by all. A Christmas party was held Dec. 15. The dining room was remodeled for the occasion. Phi Tau Alpha Bob Forward, Section C, was recently elected president of Phi Tau Alpha. He will replace Eddie Bevan, who was called by Uncle Sam. For the eleventh time in as many years, the "Men of Neome"' re- ceived the inter-fraternity plaque for athletics. This plaque was pre- sented at the Inter-Fraternity ban- quet, Dec. 17. .t.....a-.-....a....... ! Santa Claus made an early vigil, to Alpha Delta at a house party Saturday of the third week and presented gifts to everyone, Re- freshments were served and every- one celebrated the Yuletide season. This month, live men were initiated into membership of the Brotherhood of Alpha Delta. These men went through informal initia- tion the first week of Section AD-2 and were made members Sunday of the second week. They are Jim Pandak, Bob Spears, Walt Miklas, Dennis Diedrick, and Bill Muhl- backer. Phi Sigma Phi Vice-President Joe Raby took off for Dayton, Nov. 23, to get his sweetheart, Nancy Behurkea. The couple then eloped and were mar- ried in Richmond, Ind. Something new was added to Phi Sig this section. For the first time in a good many years, some classical records were purchased for the record album. Much to the surprise of everyone, the rec- ords were met with eager en- thusiasm. Phi Kappa Epsilon This month at Phi Kap has been one of much activity. The house is still in the process of being redec- orated and the cardroom and hall- ways have received a new coat of paint. With this month also comes the traditional Christmas party at which Phi Kap plays host to a group of underprivileged children from the local orphanages. whne Elephant The Elephants held two parties this month, the first of which was held the second week end. Tom Kubani, social chairman, made the party very enjoyable by providing facilities for dancing, singing, and snacks. A Christmas party was: held with everyone receiving a gift! from good old f'Santy," alias Ed-' ward "O-Hoh" Dahringer. Gamma Mu Tau Gamma Mu topped oif the end of the second week of Section BD with a hayride followed by a house party. Everyone on the hayride managed, somehow or other, to keep warm, even though the weather was far from comfortable. The house party, a very successful affair complete with skits, dancing, and a bit to eat, was held in the , new recreation room. Os NQRAf MUt'l' E rs In Your Upinion .... Whal' Do You Think of The Technician "Monkey Wrench" Column? lVlr. Guy R. Cowing, GMI President -There is quite a difference be- tween humor and a joke. Humor never had a double meaning con- nected with it. For instance, you have probably watched Sam Leven- son and Milton Berle on television. Which would you rather have as a friend? Probably Sam Levenson. Why? There's your answer. Don Sinsabaugh, GMTE President -The jokes were concentrated too much on building up a false front. They didn't bother me too much, on the whole, with the exception that all jokes seemed to be built on one theme. Jerry Freacl, President, Inter- Fraternity Council - The older jokes are better than the new ones. It does a person good to laugh a little. We have enough work to do without not having something to laugh at once in a while. The FLINTECHO must have been quite a paper! Mr. George J. Giel, Bldg. Services -They stink! They are obsolete, out of date, many of them taken from previous editions of the paper! Why aren't some original jokes used? Those jokes are as old as the school, and the school is thirty years old! Jack Baker, Athletic Council Chm. -I thought the jokes were pretty good. If they were supposed to be too raw, you ought to see some other school papers. True, they could have been newer, but on the whole, I thought they were pretty good. We think the motto of The Mich- igan State College SPARTAN is very appropriate at GMI, Blessed are fhe censors, for 'lhey shall inhibil' 'lhe earfh. NK lllrin By PETE GARFIELD 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, and calmly exclaims "won again." One warm morning during this section, a calculus class, held in Room 310, under the instruction of Mr. Davis, was proceeding as usual when a little sparrow alighted on the ledge near an open window and began chirping a melody. The at- tentive students, suffering from swollen heads, dry mouths, and eyeballs with that "road map" look, tried to ignore their fine- feathered friend and were doing quite well when Mr. Davis re- marked nonchalantly, but with fire in his eyes, "I wonder if that is a sine Qsignj that calculus is for the birds?" It can be told now about what that tremendous commotion was in the cafeteria a few weeks ago when some of the local coppers were trailing Bill Brennan. It seems that through a bit of misfortune he acquired a parking ticket, and, not realizing the magnitude of his funds, wrote a check to the Flint Police Department which demon- strated the check's elastic erties. Recently Mr. Kehner was duced to Mr. Hamlin at a and Mr. Hamlin, at the time what "non campus Ventus," said "you certainly look terribly fa- miliar.

The scene is mass hysteria, as the lead changes hands time after time. Suddenly, disaster strikes Alpha Gam. Three-Time All-American Johnny Spring is seriously injured. His loss is a serious blow to the Welch boulevard men, but, un- daunted, they iight the defending champions right down to the wire, when, in the final 9.45 seconds, George Boyatsies, Olympic star and Phi Sig guard, dunks a drive in to give the Black and Gold a 42-40 victory.

Due to the childish action of a few rambunctious individuals, the 21 shoot was completely disorgan- ized near the end of the third week. Someone inadvertently inserted fictitious results on the brackets. An effort is being made to re- organize the remaining partici- pants, and the matches should be completed before the end of the section. Don Heiler, CPSPD guards Ted Plummer, CAGUJ Garldnders Lead n Bowling Twentieth Century Bowling al- leys is the scene of hostilities 'this year in GMI'S annual bowling tournament. The entry deadline found a total of 12 teams ready to "roll," and first round matches were held Nov. 29. The field was composed of the eight fraternity teams, and four independent teams, the Garlanders, Kingpins, Lucky Strikes, and Ten Pins. In the initial 1'ound, the indepen- dent Garlanders got off to a com- manding lead and have held it securely to date. At present, Gamma Mu is perched in the second slot, with Alpha Delt a close third. Dick Steinbaugh of the Garlanders has consistently bettered 700 pins per game, giving him the individual honors. Alpha Gam, Sparks Remain To Qhallenge Champs In the battle of the unbeatens, with the championship of the win- ners' bracket at stake, Phi Sig came through in fine style and dumped the Sparks, with little trouble, 46-34. Don Heiler, Phi Sig center, checked in with 8 field goals and 4 free throws for a 20-point total. This leaves AGU, the Sparks, and unbeaten Phi Sig as the sole sur- vivors of the two-defeats-and-out tourney. AGU and the Sparks will do battle to determine who meets the powerful PSP quintet for the crown. Section AD found a grand total of 21 topnotch ball clubs entered in the month's basketball tournament. Thirteen independent ball clubs, along with one quintet from each of the eight fraternities composed the original field. The first week saw a total of eight ball games played, with the Jets, Alpha Gam, Buicklan, Phi 'Tau, Flyers, Sparks and Hi-Flyers and the defending champion Phi Sig team emerge victorious. Two of the more im- pressive triumphs of the initial round were Phi Sig's sound thump- ing of Gilgal and Alpha Ga.m's 58- 19 trouncing of the Clowns, in which Johnny Spring of the Welch Boulevarders garnered 29 points. The second week found all 21 teams swinging into action, both in the consolation and champion- ship brackets. A grand total of 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 had not yet tasted defeat. Top- notch basketball was the theme in almost every ball game. In this round, Phi Sig and the Hi-Flyers tangled in a nip and tuck duel, a 44-38 edge. Alpha Gam put the skids under Phi Tau, 31-25, and the Flyers dropped Buicklan, 47-33. Phi Kap thumped the Hellcats and the Sparks topped the Cagers in other second-round action. In the consolation bracket, festivities were that found Phi Sig emerging with FLASH!-Phi Sig downed the Sparks 40-37 in a very close game 'to cop the basketball championship for Section AD-2. Don Heller, Phi Sig center, showed the way for the Black and Gold as he pushed through basket after basket to be high scorer for the evening. Dave Anderson, also of Phi Sig, very ably assisted Don in submerging the Gamma Mu houseguests. Mike Riiie Was the big QUI1 for the Sparks. Earlier, the Sparks defeated Alpha Gam to take the losers' bracket. in full swing, with White Elephant having the dubious distinction of being the Hrst team eliminated, after dropping a highly-contested 38-36 decision i0 Alpha Delt. Don Sinsabaugh checked in with a ine per- formance for the losers, throwing home 8 iield goals and 4 fouls for a 20-point total. g The third round of championship play saw Phi Sig and Alpha Gamma matched in one quarterfinal game and two independents, the Fiyefe 31161 the Sparks, clashing in the other.

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, ,, F i, . -.ri-MV --T-m original experiments in the fas cinating field of popular science' were used. 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 lhfeon 12, the wonder refrigerant. 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- mission of communication was ex- plained and presented. Music was transmitted across the stage on the beam of a pin point arc lamp. Jet propulsion and its theories were summarized and a working model jet engine was ignited. To close this sequence of scientific ac- complishments, the possibility of Converting sunshine directly to electrical energy was demonstrat- ed. A "sun motor" which derives its power from the heat of a candle 01' the light of a 150-watt light bulb was operated. ? T. H. KEI-ITING SPENKS IIT 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. 1 , 'luke . Tech Clubbers Feast-T. H.

A plea for reporters in Section BC was made to complement an under- manned force. However, present plans are to complete all write-ups and layouts by next month. Comsa predicts that the 51-52 REFLECTOR will be the best ever produced, and states that it will be modeled after a late edition of the University of California year- book. The pictures in this year's RE- FLECTOR will be one of its out- standing characteristics. A pro- fessional photographer is taking all the photographs. Working with Editor Comsa are Walt Collins, assistant editorg Karl Koehler, business manager, Bob Wright, write-up editorg Bob Walker, layout editorg and Frank Walker, assistant business manager. .--.X 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- ceedings. Among other guests Present were Major Albert Sobey, Presi- dent Emeritus of GMI, Dr. Baker of the Management Department, Mr. Tobias of the Science Depart- ment, and Mr. Brown of the Eng- lish and Co-ordination Department. xxx X p,,ge-pw., TECHNICIAN ' ' Friday, Icmuary 25, 1952 Friday, January 25, 1952 Volume XII Number 4 The Official Newspaper of GENERAL MOTORS INSTITUTE Published Monthly by The GMTE Publications Council Bob Bolcla ......,.....

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- pendents. 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 with him. 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 3, 0 rm , all 0 if if graduation in June of 1945. In his off-hours he was an itinerant salesman of various lines of com- mercial goods. 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- at- of FLECTOR. As a sophomore, he tained the position of Editor the TECHNICIAN. In addition to in 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 free-air flight. For a iirst project, a basic jet engine of utmost simplicity was discussed and constructed. Pro- EK ANSWERS 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 various projects. The will and ability of the mem- bers themselves determines the projects and their assignments. By allowing its members to decide the agenda, the club hopes to make rapid progress. Meei' .-......-... Mr. Cherry Passing through the machine shop, one cannot help but notice that big man with the booming voice, Austin F. Cherry. Blessed with a sense of humor, a. broad smile comes easily to himg but a deep frown greets those who dis- regard his instruction in lathe operation. Making the wheels turn is his business, and he knows the lathe from headstock to tailstock. Born and raised in Lansing, Mr. Cherry graduated from high school and entered the Olds Motor 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- chine skills he now exhibits. With these abilities he appeared as an instructor in the machine shop at GMI and has been here for 10 years. 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 ir- . 1 S. .. his home. He likes food-plenti' of it, and includes eating as 0119 of his favorite pastimes. Friendliness is one of his vir- tues, and he is always ready to share a smile with anyones He cn- joys his work and thinks highly Of the school and students. Many 21 hitchhiking student can thank Mr- Cherry for oft-provided transpor- tation. His attitude produces all appreciation in students.

They are Fred English, Jim Arvin, Harry Annis, Arsenio Virrazzi, Carl Holtman, Bob Richmond, Walter Vaughn, Jim Karpicke, Dick Reynolds, John Larmond, Jack Cook, Chuck Riolo, Bud House, and Steve Baylog. Bill Towill, Bus Ad student from Jerryville, Conn., and Dick Cassady, a dealer student from Crescent City, Calif., became members. 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- cluded were Stuart F. Jaquay, George Gallanis, John Archambeau, Buryl L. Burgess, Richard Murray, and John Lobsiger. PTA-Two big events became history for the men of Phi Tau during Section BC-2. The first of these, the pledging ceremony held Monday of the third week, saw 22 young men begin the road to brotherhood, the largest class ever to start out in pledgeship to Phi Tau Alpha. . The second event was the house "birthday party" held Saturday 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- ering was developed accordingly, excluding, of course, riverboats and carpet-baggers. GG-This section was opened with an increase of two house guests, Frank Allen, and Edward Childs. Wayne Cerveny, Jack Federhart, and Bill Thompson accepted pledge bids. 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. Heating Engineer Robert Garney and his little brother, Vince Kasner, make a great team on the end of a 24-inch pipewrench, although Works Manager Griflies has to use all his southern diplomacy to keep Vince from using Bob's nose as a sewer snake. In Memoriam Richard Westby, first-year Deal- er student from Park Motor com- pany of Austin, Minn., was killed in an automobile collision in De- troit, Jan. 13, while returning from a theater party. With him at the time of the col- lision were Students Erwin Simon and Michael Visconteg both were treated at Providence hospital for minor injuries. AMA SPONSORS DINNER MEETING The GMI Management Associa- tion held its monthly activity in the form of a dinner meeting on Monday of the fourth week. The event took place at the Flint YWCA cafeteria, and was attend- ed by a representative group of over thirty members. Highlight of the evening was the speech given by Mr. Raymond Sanger of the Motor Wheel Corporation of Lansing. His topic, "Capital Prob- lems in the Corporation," was one of interest to all concerned with current economic problems and their practical application to in- dustry today. Newman Club News The GMI Newman Club, a social and spiritual organization for Catholic college students, engaged in a full month of activities here at GMI. The local unit, headed by Nick Smiciklas, continued its program of presenting monthly get-togethers with the Flint Junior College Newman Club and the various Young Ladies' Sodalities in the Flint area. At these gath- erings, a talk on some religious subject is given by the Chaplain of Newman Club, followed by a mixer dance and various other en- tertainment. Plans are now being laid for a skating party to be held Jan. 31 at the Flint Park Roller Arena. Festivities are open to all, and the party will get under way at 8 p.m. Tickets will go on sale at the be- ginning of next month, and may be obtained from any of the club members. ON BOARDING the train, a pair of newlyweds had tipped the porter to keep the fact a secret.

"Lawdy, boss," he replied, UI didn't tell 'emg they ask me if YOU was just married and I S62 'N0, they is just good friends'." AN OPEN LETTER There is no doubt in the minds of any student that the Athletic Council did a magnificent job in 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- yond the call of duty in arranging for a professional coach to give, a short basketball clinic before the season opened. These are the things which pro- mote a wholesome school spirit, whether we realize it or not. But one thing could be requested, per- haps for consideration in the fol- lowing months. Whatever became of the Student Assemblies for the playoff of the championship basketball games? Of all the activities ever presented, 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, and fiocks of students, whether they were basketball addicts or not, came down to see the guys they study with in an atmosphere not to be duplicated in any class- room. ' How about it, Athletic Council, Assembly Committee, et al?-DS "Queen's Choices" Prance af GMTE Mixer Dance Lois Gushen was chosen "Queen of Leap Year" at the "Queen's Choice" Dance held in the 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- monies. Featured was a mad scramble across the floor as each fair lady raced for her choice of a partner for the dance to follow, that was the "Queen's Choice." Four hundred young men and women braved a sudden snowstorm ,to attend the "Snow Shuffle" held Jan. 4. A short week prior to the dance prohibited the use of elab- orate decorationsg however, a very novel effect was created by focus- ing multi-colored lights on the walls and the crystal ball in the center of the gym. aid, WW ' ' e 1-fw,,31f,r ,4,3,,,f- .

Gore, Williamson, and Marvin Seek Tifle Twenty-seven aspirants to the title of the most accurate basket dunker in GMI signed up for the 21 shoot tournament. Nets were worn to a frazzle as their deadly accuracy eliminated one after another from the ranks of the un- beaten until only three stalwarts remained in competition. Roy Gore, Gilgal ace, is matched with Matt Marvin, dead-eye from Gamma Mu. The winner of this pair is to play Terry Williamson of Phi Kap for the championship. Gore owns victories over Gary Slater, El Apple, and Dick Pavlak while Marvin gained the nod over Jim Grierson. Marvin's cause was enhanced by drawing a bye and by a forfeiture by the two entrants in the bracket immediately below his. Williamson earned his way to the finals by dumping Bill Red- man, Jack Bush, Jerry Harber, and Bob Holden. i llllllKH0llSE PENIIENTS lEllIL lELll 0F EIGHT INTO FllllllS Greatest basketball surprise of the month was the sudden rise of a band of little-known freshmen. Named the Pendents, they humbled all competition in their path until they were the only unbeaten five in the school. In their first tilt, they downed their counterparts, the Indies, by a 36-29 score. Phi Kap fell to the onslaught, 32-27. The proved better competition but also White Elephant Houseguests were the next victims, falling by a 27-11 score. Alpha Delt put up a bitter struggle, with the Pendents holding a slim two-point margin at half- time. Dick Bennett and Bob Brahier led the Pendents to a sweeping 53-40 victory in the wild second half. Re Kappa Tire got off to a flying start by dropping Gilgal by a 45- 27 nod.

White Elephant, Phi Sig, and Phi Tau Hnished second, third, and fourth, respectively, but a margin of 446 pins separated White Ele- phant from Re Kap. The Re Kaps dropped only one of the 12 games they bowled in amassing almost a 160-pin average for each individ- ual player. Wayne Graunke, "Moose" Schneider, Nick "Mauler" Montes, Del Tickel, and "Dirty Don" Schostek made up the cham- pionship team. Individual honors went to Ron Hungerman of White Elephant, as he scattered the maples for an 184- pin average. His games included 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 it was strictly an Independent field day as Re Kap posted the Egg high team games of 868 and in what was easily the most excit- ing game staged at GMI in many a day. Jim Wlieeler led Re Kap to a one-point lead with only three sec- onds to go when he fouled Bob Forward. Bob took the ball with the game officially over and dunked the foul shot to tie the score. Del Tickel of Re Kap Won the game in the last 15 seconds of overtime by sinking a foul shot. The final score-29-28. Re Kap then sent Chev Tech into the losers' bracket with a 44- 25 win, only to meet defeat them- selves at the hands of the Pen- dents. Playing an inspired brand 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, Phi Sig, and White Elephant. Alpha Delta, aided by the great floor play of Joe Heuser and the sharpshooting of Dick Pavlak, de- feated Alpha Gam, the Five Tap- pers, and the Arrows. The Arrows. after losing to Alpha Delt, toppled Phi Kap, 50- 39. Al Kluger dropped in 17 points for the Arrows while Larry Staub garnered 10 for PKE. Alpha Gam lost their opener to Alpha Delt and then handled the Comedians, the Five Tappers, and the White Elephant Houseguests easily. Bob Swick and Bill Red- man scored high for AGU in all their contests. , Phi Tau, last year's winners, de- feated the GM Dealers easily, and then dealt the humbling blow to Phi Sig, 54-24.

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- grams to the efficiency of modern automatic transmissions. Among the guests introduced by Tech Club President Burck Gross were Mr. Tutt, Chairman of the Fifth Year and Degree Programg Mr. Lander, Industrial Engineer- ing Department Chairmang and Mr. Mobley, Supervisor of the Student Relations Service.

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 myopia. 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 hours. Even then, Jim exhibited an ag- gressive interest and ability in leadership in the school's general organization. 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 him. 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 his best." by the editor ,,,, 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 broken bones. 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 the building. SF if S Tales of woe are being heard from the Student Relations depart- ment because people are changing places of residence but not telling anyone about it, particularly, Student Relations. If your address card is not up to date, change it. It is to your advantage to make your exact address known to the proper people. Apologies Are in Order The editor of THE TECHNICIAN wishes to apologize to the Athletic Council for the article appearing in last month's paper entitled "An Open Letter." In this article, the Council was urged to promote a student assembly for the basketball finals. Before the article was written, plans were fully laid for thiS month's assembly, and the actual appearance of the article was therefore unwarranted. . :A - .A . MW... 1 ,Q-.f 1,5 ' xz'-if '. T.-. Friday. February 22, 1952 TECHNICIAN PageTlu'ee Gierok Addresses Management Group 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. NEWMAN CLUB 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 State college. Highlighting the social scene was the Valentine day dance held Feb. 9 at Fr. Murphy's hall. Music was recorded and the club furnished entertainment during the intermission. The month's activities were cli- maxed at the final Communion breakfast, Feb. 17, at which Mr. Stephen Roth, former Attorney General of Michigan, was guest Speaker. His topic was "The Recon- struction of the State Govern- ments." During the business meeting that followed, plans were laid for the next section's activ- ities. Paul Johnson Given ATI Freshman Award The Alpha Tau Iota annual freshman award presentation for the highest scholastic rating among the freshman class was made this month. Paul R. Johnson from Chevrolet-Bay City was presented an engraved copy of "Kent's Handbook" by President Guy R. Cowing. Paul has held the rank of first man in the first decile for Six straight months. In a special initiation held Jan. 24, Royce G- Engel, Jr., was taken into Alpha Tau Iota Honor Society- DEALER MID-YEAR GRADS FORM CLUB 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 are off to him for accepting this position. Saturday evening, Feb. 16, a buffet dinner party and dance was held at the Durant hotel. All members, their wives and femmes were present. The evening was a great success and climaxed two enjoyable years at GMI. Flash Bulbs Flare for Reiiecfor Shofs Progress on THE REFLECTOR is moving at a steady pace. Photo- graphs of classes, clubs, and fraternities are being taken this month. All senior pictures are expected to be completed by the end of the month. THE REFLECTOR is L1I1de1'g0iT1g a complete overhaul and change of style from previous years. Drastic changes are being made in layout which should provide an interest- ing and pleasing REFLECTOR for '52. Emphasis is to be on large pictures. No filler material is to be used. The layout will be ar- ranged so that all the space is utilized for pertinent information. The size of THE REFLECTOR will be changed from 8V2 by 11 inches to 9 by 12 inches. This will per- mit the addition of the first nine C0Pies of THE TECHNICIAN. The cover design, as yet, re- mains a secret known only to the editors. However, they did prom- ise something unusual and differ- ent. Originator of the conversion idea was Virg Comsa, editor of THE REFLECTOR. .af-....... ........-.... SWE.ETHEART UN PARA E AI 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 as well. 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 kiss. 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 spot. 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 of Gilgalg Mary Hadevich of Cleve- land, Ohio, and Charles Luthe of Alpha Delta, Elise Bennett of Flint and Helmut Heuser of Alpha Gam- ma Upsilong Ella Mae McAllister of Anderson, Ind., and Jerry Har- ber of Phi Tau Alphag Jereleen Sweezey of Detroit and Jack Dick- erson of Phi Sigma Phig and Nancy Apple of Newburg, Ind., and Carl Holtman of Phi Kappa Epsilon. Dick Topp of Phi Kappa Epsilon is the dance chairman. Dick Brun- er of Alpha Gamma Upsilon will be the master of ceremonies. The patrons are Mr. and Mrs. R. E. Smith, Mr. and Mrs. P. W. Stone, Mr. and Mrs. G. T. Gregg, Mr. and Mrs. R. G. Deane, Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Lichty, Mr. and Mrs. B. J. Ruddock, Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Keehner, and Mr. and Mrs. G. Sood. Page Four - - . , . --1 ,. .

February 22. 1952 AD-'I'here's a new sound in the night at Alpha Delt. The new bunks with their innerspring mat- tresses have instigated a new fad among the members. For the first time in several years the men in the house are sleeping. It's quite a pastimeg the members like it so much in fact that they're planning to suggest it be included in the school curriculum. The arrival of the bunks had some interesting consequences. Before the new bunks came, Mike Henkel, in performing his duties, tore up the treasurer's bunk be- cause it was not made in the morn- So when the treasurer sold old bunks, Mike's was among first to go. Mike didn't mind ing. the the sleeping in the basement except that Bob Garney kept experiment- ing with the furnace in the wee hours. These work periods usually 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 childhood hobby of constructing mudpies in technicolor. His in- terest in getting the job done is attributed to Mary Hadevich, who is coming up from Cleveland to be Alpha Delt's candidate for queen of the IF Ball. PTA-Plans to completely rejuv- enate the grounds surrounding the house at 1631 Neome drive have been formulated during the past month at Phi Tau. Included in the tentative house improvements are the removal of the present garage, paving the driveway, and the construction of a dining room under the second-floor sleeping porch. Dedicated to the memory of the first president of the fraternity, the Albert M. St. Ger- main Memorial house improvement program will also include a land- scaping job on the rest of the grounds. A general house cleanup has been started by House Committee Chairman Joe Prosser. Under his supervision, a new roof was put on the sleeping porch, the carpet- ing on the first and second fioors was thoroughly cleaned, and the fioors on the third deck were var- nished. The past three weeks have also found an alumnus in section. Dale Ritter, former vice-president, has been staying in Flint during his mid-semester break from the Uni- versity of Michigan. GMT-The past month has seen a slowdown in activities at Gamma Mu. This can probably be attrib- uted to sickness that has sprung up due in all probability to the un- seasonal weather that has pre- vailed. Things look as though they are settling down now though, and many plans for the future have been proposed. Along the lines of house im- provements is the new kitchen re- icentiy installed. It includes all- steel cabinets and stainless steel sinks. The recreation room is nearing completion and the senior ,study 1'oom now boasts a new ceil- ling. Four new houseguests have joined the ranks this past month. ,They are Ron Gamble of Toledo, Ed Baker of Belleville, Mich., Jim Haley of Frederick, Md., and Jim Scheffier of Northumberland, Pa. PKE-This month Phi Kappa wel- comed two new houseguests, Vin- cent Nitti and Larry Wise. House improvements consisted of work on the shower room and painting of the upper hall ceiling. Monday night of the third week marked the formal banquet held in honor of graduating Seniors Al Reddock and Bill Chant. Plans are in the making for a breakfast to be held after the Sweetheart Ball under the gov- ernorship of John Mahoney. Nan- cy Apple of Newburgh, Ind., was nominated by the men of PKE to represent the fraternity at the dance. She will be escorted byi Carl Holtman. AGU - The Delta Chapter of Alpha Gamma Upsilon is celebrat- ing its twentieth year at GMI. A charter was granted to Delta Jan. 16, 1932. This anniversary will be observed at a celebration to be held after the IF Ball. This year's Alpha Gam hopeful for Queen of the IF Ball is Elise Bennett, fiancee of Helmut Heuser. Elise is a senior at Michigan State college, a columnist for The Flint Journal, and a member of the Gamma Phi Beta sorority. Pledges Dick Larkin and Tom Anderson are attempting to write a song for the Sweetheart Ball. They are hoping it will be complet- ed by then. This month, Omega day was ob- served. Omega day is the Sunday nearest to Feb. 1, each year, and is a day dedicated to the memory of our brothers who have passed away. Members and pledges at- tended church in a group, Feb. 3. No longer is the cry "to the showers" heard in the halls of AGU. This month the solemn word is "study." WE-Section AC saw quite a bit of action around White Elephant fraternity. Most of it was due to preparations for the "Sweet- heart Ball." The dining room received a coat of paint and most of the woodwork was sanded and repainted. The members and pledges worked very hard and the house looked excep- tionally nice for the dance. The brothers and pledges chose the candidate for queen of the ball, Jan. 31. She was Miss Audrey Block of Saginaw, escorted by Ray Sundeck. After the dance, everyone en- joyed a fine breakfast served at the house. The ham and eggs soon disappeared, and everyone left feeling that it's a shame that all good things must end so quickly. Alan Bader was pledged early in the section, thus raising the number of pledges to seven, but Stuart Jaquay was called into the army to again Fix the total at six. GG-Without a doubt, meals at Gilgal this month have been the most enjoyable in a long time. The reason? A completely new dining room is now at their dis- posal. Refinished walls, matching drapes, and a dining set compose an environment generating a "din- ner atmospheref' Look for the bulging waistlines! Speaking of bulging waistlines, several of the members, including the presiding oiiicer, almost in- creased their waistline measure- ments by consuming shaving cream. The catastrophe was the result of someone's fiendish sense of humor fperhaps a pledgeb. It seems several pieces of apple pie were garnished with Burma Shave and passed off as the best of whipped cream. Needless to say, the victims were in a lather. With the addition of Dick Culver and Tony Zinicola, the number of pledges in section increased to fou1'. Dick, from Lansing, and Tony, from New York, are both freshmen. Saturday of the third week wit- nessed the monthly houseparty. This one, however, was far from usual. With Cas DeFiore, Tom Lonegan, and Red McCarthy on the entertainment committee, the un- expected was expected and no one was disappointed. At the close of this section, Gilgal bids farewell to Louis Ter- hune, former presiding officer, house manager, and Athletic Coun- cil chairman. To Lou goes the appreciation and best wishes of every Gilgal. Until our paths cross again, "So long, and God be with you, Lou." Meef . . . MR. GARRETT LOODE 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 l 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 theatre. 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. . .

RE KAP SNARES TEN-PIN TOURNEY Re Kappa Tire took the bowling title for Section AC-3, as they warded off the desperate bids of Alpha Gam, Phi Kap, and Gamma Mu. This marked the second time in as many months that the In- dependent keglers have copped the crown. Final pin totals of the top four teams showed Re Kap 9265, Alpha Gam 8899, Phi Kap 8711, and Gamma Mu, 8699. Jumping off to a tremendous 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 proved to be the sparkplugs of the team. Individual honors were won by Wayne Graunke of Re Kap with a 171 average. Bowlers who hit 200 games were Graunke, Chuck Garman, John Eblacker, Bob Swick, and Jerry Anderson. An- derson attained the coveted mark twice. Zinicola, Reddoch. 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 Jim Grierson. Reddoch owns tri- Hmvhs Over Mufphy, Bob Swick, and Bob Bush. Harber has beaten Jerry M0ntg0me1'Y, Don Hartley, and Lee Roy Gore, Zinicola and Reddoch are matched against each other, and fthe Wmner will D12-Y Harber. HllllIlW00ll GRUWN TARGET 0F RE KAPPA TIRE All I TM As AC section opened, the bas- ketball courts again became the sports centers of GMI as 15 teams entered the championship contest. Seven Independent and eight fraternity teams strove and fell one by one until only Phi Tau Alpha and Re Kappa Tire re- mained. In the first round it was Re Kap over Alpha Delt, 37-305 Gilgal over the Styleliners, 40-249 Gamma Mu Jrs. over the Roadmasters by forfeit, White Elephant over the Fire House Five, 57-305 Phi Sig over Gamma Mu, 34-29 in over- timeg Alpha Gam over the Silver Streaks 76-24, with John Spring 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 Kap. Alpha Delt, led by Dick Pavlak, dealt the humbling blow to the Styleliners and the Gamma Mu Jrs. before they encountered Gil- gal. Roy Gore of Gilgal directed 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 and White pulled ahead early and the Pendents were out of the tourney. 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 of Re Kap came out of retirement for the game and coupled with Phi Tau's "Mighty Mite" Neil Car- rol fl7J Scores in the Game with White Elephant-Other PTAS Are Elden Apple C141 and Ed Grabe- vac USD-WE Players Are Bob Bush f5Q and Rex Bolinger CSD if ik Sli Jim Wheeler to pound out a 41- 35 victory. Wheeler displayed his 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. This set the stage for the cham- pionship battle between unbeaten Re Kappa Tire and Phi Tau Alpha, which was played at the student assembly, Monday of the fourth week.

W E 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- plorer Scout post. Ski Club Lays Plans 'for Hinferland Trek The weather conditions this month have been fairly good. Not good for the Flint motorist or pedestrian, of course, but for the Ski Club. The Ski Club has the largest membership of any GMI club. Or- ganized in 1948, this club now has more than 65 members in the AC section alone. The basic equip- ment necessary for participation in the club's activities Qskis, poles, and bindings1 is available at the athletic crib. 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 plans. 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. FACULTY FACES 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 Alaska. 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 Corps. 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. Independent Corner 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- bers. The tour proved to be a Inost enlightening one. One of the high- lights of the trip was the Chevrolet engine assembly line, considered in manufacturing circles to be one of the fastest of its type. The sheet metal, cam and crankshaft, and case machining sections were also visited. Faculty members participating in the tour were Mr. P. H. Rakar and Mr. S. D.

March 21, 1952 Number 6 Responsibility S'I'iII Prime Requirement 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- unnoticed ways. 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- quite evident. 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 thus caused. 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 lost-and-found department in the school? We can also go back to an old Subject for THE TECHNICIAN. The School has set aside certain areas for smoking. There is good and Sufficient reason for this involving fire insurance requirements. Yet You can find students smoking in almost any portion of the building. It is of benefit to the individual student to keep the school posted on all changes in his draft status. That Way any problems that the ' al Student may have with his loc Mid-Year Class Honored af Luncheon The mid-year graduates of Sec- tions B and D were honored at the President's luncheon, held March 20 in Room 49 at the Institute. 'Mr. Guy R. Cowing, the principal ispeaker, along with the Institute's idepartment chairmen, bade their :farewell to the forty graduates. l The mid-year class will have to 'wait another five months before ,receiving final recognition of their i graduation. On Aug. 8, they, along with the remaining graduating jclass of 1952, will receive their diplomas at the annual commence- ment exercises held at the IMA auditorium. The mid-year graduating class of 1952 included 13 engineers, 3 'business administration, and 24 dealer students. GMI To Move fo Defroif? Guess Again! A rumor, hinting that GMI would be moved to Detroit in 1955, had wide circulation around the campus during the third week. THE TECHNICIAN staff has inves- tigated this gem of rumors, and found that it is entirely and un- equivocably without fact. draft board are more easily solved 'with the aid of information from the school. Again, something very definitely in the students' interestg but the information has to be asked for. Unfortunately there arises upon occasion the necessity of contact- ing the student or his family due to emergencies. The only way a student can be located outside of school hours in Flint is through the address file kept in Room 141. If this is not kept up to date it is practically impossible to locate a student. The same is true of con- tacting a student's parents if their address is not kept up to date. All of the things mentioned in the above Paragraphs require little time or effort on the student's part. All of these items are in some way directly advantageous to you, All of these items are being consistent- ly ignored or haphazardly attended 'to. WHY? ..., -.,,v 01TT0l SGHAGT IHRILLS SIU ENI AII IENGE "It's a grand night for singing!" With this song, Otto Schact opened a program with such dynamic inspiration that the entire audience was held spellbound for entertainment. Born in Germany, nearly an hour of soul-satisfying he started singing at the age of 3 years, and at 6 he sang in Germany's largest cathedral. Dr. Schact came to the United States when he was 23, and earned a degree in - o High-Poin-I' Men The top men on the three GMTE councils, as of Section BD2, were announced recently by the secre- taries of the respective councils.

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 Enchanted Evening," "Without a Song," and "Road to Mandalay" enraptured the audience- His message was certainly the most painless instruction en- countered in these halls and Prob' ably one of the most impressive. A5 a most fitting conclusion to his magnificent lecture, the audience arose and bowed their heads to the humble strains of "The Lord's Prayer." ,xx ,.,-, 4.1127 1 -i .,,.,,,1l. -X X U it K "VH: I i Page Two TECHN ICIAN Friday, March 21. 1952 The Technician Friday, March 21, 1952 Volume XII Number 6 The Oicial Newspaper of GENERAL MOTORS INSTITUTE Published Monthly by The GMTE Publications Council R.

Tom Gorbatoff, Arn Andres, Bob Walker Audrey Block Elecfed Queen of I.F. Ball White Elephant's candidate, Audrey Block, was elected "Queen of the Sweetheart Ball" Saturday evening, Feb. 23. The judges also selected Ella Mae MacAllister, Phi Tau Alpha, and Nancy Apple, Phi Kappa Epsilon, to act as her court. Music for the dance was provid- ed by Hal Maclntyre and his Or- chestra. The Sweetheart Ball, sponsored by the Inter-fraternity Council, is one of the most im- pressive aftairs for the fraternity men here at the Institute. Accord- ing to custom, each fraternity held a breakfast following the dance for its members, guests, and their dates. New Library Hours Effective March 10, the Institute library will be open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Thurs- day, and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday. The Library will also be open Saturday from 8 a.m. until noon. These new hours have been arranged to allow students to have access to the library facilities with- out interfering with class sched- ules. Nix! Finding a place to park at 7:55 a.m. is sometimes a diflicult thing at GMI, and the instructors' park- ing lot often appears to be an ideal refuge in such an emergency. Al- though the lot may appear to have room at 8 a.m., full capacity is reached at a later hour. There- fore, if the lot attendant asks you not to park there, please don't take it out on him personallyg he is merely performing his assigned duty. 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 Council. 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 , P V 1 l l l 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- cusations, however! 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 i I I X 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 product. 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. l STATISTICS 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 a score. 1 Democracy ls Worfh Worrying About The faculty are amazed .... But there's something to be amazed at, "How can students concentrate 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 at. 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 times? 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 advertising." "I'll take a course in Shake- speare next year IF I'm still around? 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 know clean 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 come. 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- H.S.G., Northeastern News, Boston 1 ww. I. .. g , ,,,. X V . iridcxy.

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- dynamics. 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 live weight. Verily, though she expecteth chocolates when he calleth, 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 Even as 9, boy he pulleth a girl's hair but to test the elasticity. discovereth diEerent devices, for he eonnteth the vibrations of her heartstringsg is a simultaneous equation involving two unknowns and yielding diverse results. . .Verily I say unto ve, marry not an engineer- But as a man he And his marriage R ,- President of General Motors in charge of the engineering staff, and designer of the Buick "dream" car, the XP-300, was the principal speaker at the Tech Club dinner meeting Monday evening, March 17. 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- 300. 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- turned to MIT to serve for a time as an instructor in mechanical en- gineering. Mr. Chayne delivered an inter- esting and inspiring talk, and the dinner meeting was thoroughly en- joyed by all present. Morning Watch Club A new club at GMI, The Morn- ing Watch Club, is meeting each week on Wednesday morning. The sponsor of the club is the Flint Chapter of the Christian Business- men's Committee International. All students and faculty are cor- dially invited to attend H1950 meetings in the auditorium from 7:30 to 7:55 a.m. --..MMM-i - UNK TE THE ROADSTER skidded around the corner, jumped in the air, knocked down a lamp.-post, smacked three cars.

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- ter of the ceiling with a cluster of green balloons. The Decoration committee did an impressive job which did not go unnoticed. In the near future, the Social Council will present the annual "Robot Ball," the dance at which outstanding students will be for- mally initiated into the Robots, an honorary activities society at Gen- eral Motors Institute. Tom Swinf Leads in BB Shoof Section BD-3 saw a very large turnout for the basketball shoot. Forty-tive aspirants set out to test their accuracy with four men still in the competition. The hardwood was continually busy with contes- tants testing their skill from six different positions. Tom Swint QPTAH fflught his Way into the finals with his deadly two-handed shot. The top bracket is still being played out with the winner of the Lewallen QPTAB and Baker qPSPl match scheduled to play Browne. The winner then meets Swint to determine the champion.

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- old Haskitt, Charles Sheridan, and Victor Zink. The debate was conducted ac- cording to the cross question procedure in which the first af-i firmative speaker presents his case, is questioned by the first man for the negative, who then presents his arguments. This continues until each has spoken and questioned another. Then a three-minute sum- mary is presented by one member Of each team, concluding the de- bate. - Tech Graduates Receive Promotions From all points of the vast Gen- .eral Motors empire comes the news telling us of the advancement to .higher positions by former G.M. Tech men. According to the re- cent issue of the G.M. Executive Bulletin, former Tech men from AC, Olds, and R.P. have been ap- Iwinted to high managerial posi tions. Appointment of E. Kirk Hamil- t0n as works engineer of AC Spark Plug Division has been announced by George Mann, Jr., general man- e ager of AC.

The election activities were held Wednesday and Thursday of the third week of Section AD-4. The secret balloting was under the care- ful observation of an Election Committee and Mr. Raines, the faculty adviser. Twelve nominees ran as candi- dates for this high position. They were Emil Bair, Frederick Curtis, and John Spring from A Sectiong Robert Bolda and William Butler from B Section, Walter Collins, James Grierson, James Predmore, Donald Schostek, and James Wheel- er from C Sectiong and Jack Baker and Walter Hubbard from D Sec- tion. Final results of the election will be determined when B and C Sec- tions vote next month. According to the election com- mittee, voting has been unusually heavy, even for a presidential elec- tion. The final decision promises to be a close one. Tl E SE 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.

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. As was the case last fall, the Institute had a very small percent- age of rejection, compared with the industrial average. n o TH E ROB 'rs or '52 M 1. resentative, is Treasurer of GMTE. Last year he was Sophomore rep- resentative and Secretary of GMTE. Harlan, Vice-President of GMTE and last year's Treasurer, is from Electro-Motive division. He has also been active on the Publications Council. Dave, a Junior, is also from Electro-Motive. He is the present editor of THE TECHNICIAN. Al, a Junior, completes the trio from Electro-Motive. He is a mem- ber of the I-F Council, has been very active on the Publications Council, and is Assistant Editor of the 1952 Reflector. George is sponsored by Pontiac Motor Division. As a Senior, he is President of the Society of Auto- motive Engineers, Treasurer of the I-F Council, past President of Alpha Gamma Upsilon, and was Editor of THE TECHNICIAN l7W0 years ago. The presentation of Robot keys at the Robot Ball climaxed a week- long pledge period for the men. During the morning and afternoon breaks, they told jokes, sang songs, and publicized the Athletic, Social, and Publications Councils. Friday, the pledges wore tuxedos and large robot medallions. Acceptance into the Robot So- ciety is one of the highest honors a student at GMI can achieve. Mem- bership is extended only to those men who have shown unusual PTO' ' ficiency in extra-curricular activ- ities and selection is limited to one two-hundredth of the student body i maker at AC.

Underprivileged Kids 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 awards presentation. 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. l 1 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. The third week party was a big Success' The Pledges supplied the lentertainrnent for a "come as you are" party. Gamma Mu Man Takes Bowling Honors 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 1 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- ment. The recreation room is also nearly finished. A house party was held the sec- ond week end of Section AD. IDancing, refreshments, and spar- Ikling entertainment by the pledges lprovided a very enjoyable evening 'for the Gammas and their dates. Two seniors graduated from Gamma Mu Tau during Section BD, 4Jack Buerker from GMC Truck land Coach and Don Rozell from Central Foundry Division. Gamma iMu will miss both these men. l The pledges were rounded out to 16 with the addition of three new men, Don Roskopf from De- troit Transmission and Mike Riffe and Ken Rhea from Delco Remyf "Three Poinl's" Makes lfs Debul' al' Phi Sig 1 Several innovations were made' at the Phi Sig house during Section BD-3. The big improvement of this month was the regrading of the parking lot in the rear of the house. l Also during Section BD-3, Phil Sig won championships in basket- ball and bowling. Jack Baker, Dave Anderson, and Don Heilerl were selected to the first-string all- star team for basketball while An- derson and Dick Steinbaughi sparked the bowling team to its championship. For the first time in two years, Phi Sig is editing a fraternity newspaper, the "Three Point." The fellows have been throwing them- selves to the task of making the paper a success although many of them have never had any preVi0l1S experience in journalism. A joint party was held with Phi Tau Alpha, April 5, at which eV6I'Y one had an enjoyable evening- Pledges from both fraternitieS gave interesting skits which brought howls of laughter from the audience. Phi Tau Holds Parfy af Bund Hall 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" routine. 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 dreams. During the first week, John Parks went through informal initiation and was elected to membership. GMIA Sponsors Variefy Show 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- uates. The officers, Secretary Dave Ostrem, Treasurer Merle Vertz, and Activities Chairman George Burnett, all coop dealer students, left the cloistered halls of GMI to take their places in the business world land in all probability, to await a personal message from Uncle Sami. These vacancies were immediately filled by Bruce Whar- ram as secretary, Ed Schwinn as treasurer, and Jerry Hauser as activities chairman. In one of the surprise moves of 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 nucleus for independent activity and organization. iSENlOR-RING ORDERS According to Harlan Koca, senior representative, orders for senior rings are still being taken in Room '47 each Tuesday during the after- 'noon break. l .. ll .Ii ff lg, V if il il .f .J al l f. l l J.

Friday. April 18, 1952 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' Lloyd DeMause. 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 Band played the postlude, "Onward Christian Soldiers." Everyone in attendance bene- fitted greatly from the impressive service. Morning Services Held af 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- ance underwriter. 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. Newmaniies A'H'end Ann Arbor Conference The religious activities of the Newman Club were emphasized this section, with social activities kept to a minimum due to the lenten season. Plans are being made to continue social activities after Easter. Many old and new faces were seen at the Communion Mass and Breakfast, assisting to make it a huge success. An excellent talk was given after the breakfast by Mr. J. Orourke, a prominent Flint lawyer, on the subject, "Courts in Michigan," A group of Newmanites, headed 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. Wafch the Birdie The Camera club is a section of the Social Council and offers many advantages to the student inter- ested in photography. There is a variety of equipment here at school which is available to the Camera club members. For students interested in taking pictures, the club has a studio ses- sion or field trip every month. We have flood lights, props, and background material needed for taking indoor pictures. For the student interested in de- veloping pictures, the darkroom is equipped with a solar enlarger, a 4x5 printer, Elm developing tanks, trays, and all other necessary equipment. The chemicals are furnished free to members of the Camera club. The only cost to a member is his printing or enlarging paper. Classes are held for students who are interested in photography who would like to learn how to develop films. Instructions are also given in various types of studio lighting. Meetings are held the first Wednesday of each section and a picture-taking event is held during the third week. Saginaw Sfeering 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- membered. 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. Reliecfor Confinues Despife Broken Ankle The 1952 REFLECTOR was al- most stalled this month when As- sistant Editor Al Metzger broke his ankle. Al is doing nicely at Hurley hospital, and Irv Stenner has taken over Al's duties to insure that the REFLECTOR will not fall behind schedule. Present plans call for a distribu- tion date much in advance of last yearis. The picture taking will be all but completed by the end of this section, as well as the Writeups for the various presentations in the book. ASI TECH GOES By AL METZGER 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 GREEN. 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 during the first week of the month. Their version of the GMI theme song was enjoyed by all, as were their dissertations on some of the instructors. Speaking of shows, the local papers indicate that drive-in the- aters will soon open in and around the beautiful, thriving, smoky, black city of Flint. Does this mean that the almighty QP has lost its place? No comment, but skimmer is just around the corner, so pei'- sonal opinions on this subject may be formed.

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 Gam's fast finish and drop a heart- breaker, 55-53. The Jets slipped past the Knights, 45-30. In the lower bracket, first-round games saw the Meat Hooks edge the Clowns, 34-33, Gilgal dump the 4Fs, and Alpha Delta eliminate the strong independent hope, the Fly- ers. Quarterfinal action resumed April 7, and the Sirens advanced 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 gf.. .. lk 1' 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 semi-finals is Brennan opposing Paul and Verstraten battling Wal- ler. The title was won last year by B. Glynn. slipping past the Meat Hooks and Alpha Delta trouncing their farm club, the Little Deltas. The semifinalists met April 4 to determine who would do battle for the championship. Alpha Gam and the Sirens, the only independent team to reach the semi-finals, staged a close, nip-and-tuck battle for four quarters with the Welch boulevard men finally nipping the Sirens, 47-45, In the second contest of the eve- ning, Alpha Delta had little trouble with Gilgal and emerged with a 52- 43 triumph. This matches Alpha G3111 and Alpha Delta in the finals, the win- ner Tecewmg 3 tYOPhy presented by the sponsors of the meet, BY HALF A SEGDND 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 was 15.00, and Roger 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 first places. lf , ,I N .

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 Michigan speakers. 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 democracy?" 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 System of Congress electing our President, who, in return, had the power to call a general election of fConiinued on Page Foufi ls. .J 1 X X ...- ,,?'E--22225iii1222QEiE2g232gf2ii2e22122iiiiaiiiiazz 2 ,, , f X .,.,. 2223-ggisai525252:2s3Q.3sggg5gs?isegggz.5P55g,5,Qgf:.,pgggig5ga,,g3ga5zge X .,,,.,, 1 X fF..I11:5:22iii'f+3555-iiaiiiiiiili A' "" ifageisgagiisgisieQejz2:Q.Q'i'.122g1 A1 ' 5: 5E5EQEiE5EQEiEQEQEi:IQEEEQEQZWEEEEIY '-saa i"""' ggi' '-r' "ic ' 'I 'i "il ..,,. .,,,. r I 22,Q221il,.,,f,, fi ',,',, ,,,,, i"' A -zisfefeieiff ""' sei, ""' ,',', ,i.,.,,... ,,.,., ziiieasfiieiiiiiiii "" 'W ,' it i2222225532'Iif555s5e52iii?ii2555z22225321255555525225121555QEQEQEEEQEQEQEEEEEEE , i. :::.:1:z:2' " ' "', 5211.2,z22E1E5:2z2E2E22252?e i1:1E5E22zEz?a52g2' vi -".

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 reception. 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- sociation. 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- sociation.

MayY16. i952 T E C H N 1 c 1 A N page Three '71 Mo'l'or Sporfs Club Flourishes 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- imately 30 members in each of the four sectionsl. At present ten- dencies, this club may soon become the Institute's largest extracur- ricular organization. An Overseas Dealer student from Sydney, Australia, Roy Martin, was recently elected temporary chair- man of the group, which has been meeting in the basement of Mr. Burchfield's residence at 2250 Nor- bert street. While the MSC has not, as yet, been recognized by the GMTE, plans to obtain recognition are rapidly materializing. Sunday, May 4, the Motor Sports Club held an auto rally, its first 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 checked on their mile-per-hour average at four stations on the course. Winners of the first three places Were Dick Courtney with Jerry Moore and Gene Bego as navigat- Ols, Tom Lloyd with Frank Walker as navigator, and Dick Stocton with Mariano Pastdrello as nav- igator. Plans for a bigger and better rally are now under con- sideration. Applause is given to Mr. Burch- field, Roy Martin, Tom Lane, Dick Whitney, and Johnny Camden for Promoting and directing the suc- cessful event. As a future project, members of the MSC would like to undertake the design and construction of a Small sports car, suitable for com- petition in driving skill. Members have shown a keen interest in Various details of the PY0D0Sed C011- Struction-i.e., such items as inde- Dendent front and rear susP01'1Sl0T1S, engines, chassis, and bodies. Sev- Gral members have offered to PY?- Seht illustrative lectures on their particular specialties, as regards these items. Q . 1" AMA Schedules Aclivifies At latest count there are 20 na- tional and G5 local members in the student chapter of the American Management Association in GMI. The current ollicers in section are Arne Andres, presidentg Don Wen- del, vice-presidentg and Don Schos- tek, secretary-treasurer. A tentative date for a picnic has been scheduled for June of this year. Plant tours, of common in- terest to members, are also being listed for the future. GMI Observes Music Week Music Week at GMI was ob- served May 9 with a musical pro- gram presented by several organ- izations within the school. The as- sembly, held in the auditorium, re- ceived a commendable response. The program was opened by the GMI Band and included numbers by the Profess-aires, a faculty staff group. Also presented in the pro- gram was a German Uoompa-band" and a dance band, both of which are student activities. Among the selections by the GMI Band was the march, "Collossus of Columbia" by Alexander, Gould's "Pavanne," and a medley of Victor Herbert's works. The Profess-aires delighted the audience with a stirring arrange- ment of Forsyth's "Old King Cole." Accompanied by the GMI Band, the Profess-aires sang "By the Light of the Silvery Moon" by Gus Edwards and Romberg's "One S E E Ceremonies Highlighl' With an impressive ceremony, Tradlfional Ball held at the annual Robot Ball, six new pledges were admitted into the Honorary Robot Society. These men are Virg Comsa, Dick Bruner, Don Schostek, .lim Predmore, Bob Bolda, and Arn Andres. Virg, a senior who cooperates with Process Development Section, Detroit, is editor-in-chief of the 1952 REFLECTOR, holds the office of Vice-President of the Inter-Fraternity Council, and is a member of Alpha Gamma Upsilon Fraternity. Dick, also a senior, coops with Delco Products Division in Dayton. l-le holds a gold and a silver key from the Social Council for having been Manager and Secretary, respectively.

Everyone at the Insti- tute, including members of the fac- ulty, is welcome to attend. Mr. Robert Irvine, an accountant with Consumers Power, was the speaker of the month. Interest was quite high for the month of May. There was an at- tendance of 17 at the first meeting and an increase at the fourth and last meeting of the month.

He is following the Personnel sequence of Business Administration. Dur- ing his three years at GMI, he has been business manager and Sopho- more Representative for the Amer- ican Management Association, and Sports and Fraternity Editor for THE TECHNICIAN. Presently, he is a member of Phi Tau Alpha Fraternity. Arn is sponsored by Detroit Transmission. As a junior, he is President of the Independent As- sociation and American Manage- ment Association, and during his first two years at Tech he was editor of THE TECHNICIAN, Secre- tary and Sophomore Representative of the Independent Association, and Activities Chairman of the American Management Association. He is also a member of the New- man and Camera Clubs. The purpose of the Robot So- ciety is to give special recognition to those men who have shown high standards of scholarship and par- ticipation in extra-curricular activ- ities. The Society was organized during the early years of GMI. As its significance became known it was accepted as a function of the student organization and came un- der the sponsorship of the GMTE. Q -alll Page Four ' Q TECHN ICIAN Friday. it 16, 1952 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. Paul Kessler, Vice-President, is having woman trouble. A couple of his fraternity brothers are writing to a certain girl in Hamilton, Ohio, trying to assist him in his problem. The rest of us are wondering just what kind of assistance he is re- ceiving. PTA Improves House for '52 Although several witnesses have reported strange, Martian-like crea- tures around PTA on Saturdays, the incident was only the first step in our gigantic 1952 house improve- ment campaign with a crew under the direction of Works Manager Bob Forward. The ultimate goal, says Joe,f'You must have an AVO," Prosser QPro- duction Superintendentj is four- fold. First, from the ruins of the garage shall emerge a brand-new 15-car parking area engineered by Don, "Plus or minus a few yards," Grimes' staff. Then, a white, sparkling drive- way, stretching from Neome to the parkway, will be constructed. Third, a large picture-window extension from the rear of the house will provide room for a new dining room and kitchen. And last, the former kitchen shall be converted to house Phi Tau's administrative staf and the dining room will become another large den. Between studies and working on the above projects, Phi Taus are volunteering their spare time to show motion pictures to the bed- ridden patients of Genesee County Tuberculosis Sanatorium. Golf Governs af' Alpha Delfa There's been quite a controversy at A. D. the first part of this month. After comparing all the new class . . t hat on schedules, it was discovered Joe Heuser could only play golf Tuesday morning. There was then a serious coniiict because no one else could play at that time. Link Miller and Ferril Griffies were luckier. They managed to play together on Wednesday and Griffi even had Friday afternoons for the Bus. Ad. Open Tournament. BS t the members like to do. The first Saturday, four workmen and nine h We've finally found a job hat t e foremen went out to dismantle back porch. By four o'clock, ten 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. Gilgal Decorafes What would spring be without spring cleaning? With this ques- to tion in mind, the Gilgals turned an evacuation of the usual year's in accumulation of odds and ends the attic and basement. It was dif- ficult to part with some of the more ie sentimental souvenirs, but tl spirit of the season prevailed. Houseguests of the month were Bland Massie, Jack Eichmeire, E ward Fritzen, Ted Miller, and Jerry Montgomery. Wayiie Cerverney, Bill Thompson, and Tony Zinicola have completed pledgeship and now awaiting formal initiation. d- 21l'6 It has been noticed that those en- ral 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 TE- he 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." S1'a'I'es Clash 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, Indiana-Michigan 8. 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. New Independent Resi ad- Is it possible to combine the vantages of fraternity and inde- pendent life? Ask one of the fel- lows living at the new Independent Residence Club and they will tell you! The Independent Association adopted this new headquarters cently after making an agreement with Dr. R. H. Stevenson, owner of the house. Ken Halter, a Junior Bus. Ad. student, has been appoint- ed as house manager. The house is located at the corner of East and Kearsley streets. There are accommodations 20 men at the house with ample re- for dence Club room for study. The basement is entirely devoted to recreation, being fully equipped with a grand piano, a television receiver, a bil- liard table, a combination radio- phonograph set, and comfortable chairs for relaxation. Meals may be prepared at any time desired. As yet, however, only the breakfast meal is eaten at the house. The bedrooms are equipped with bunk- type beds and there are shower facilities in the basement. The fellows living in the house at present, are ready and willing to have guests drop in at any treas- onablej time. y Phi Kap Pledges Hold Wiener Roasi' The first section of the new semester, flush with activity, passed by in a flash at Phi Kap. After buying a new set of chairs for the dining room, in the previous sec- tion, the old chairs were reuphol- stered this month. Chartreuse was the dominating color in the repair work. Pledgeship having been success- fully completed, the beaming pledge class sponsored a party at the house the third week end. A wiener roast on the rear lawn and entertainment consisting of hillbilly music and various skits were the main highlights of the informal affair. Ping-pong became the main form of recreation around the house dur- ing the month. A new style of play, which received the name "chintz," was developed and seemed highly successful. -iii-1 AGU Goes fo Convention The week end of May 2 saw the Alpha Gam membership trek to De- troit for their national convention. Activities got under way Friday night at the stag party, continued through Saturday with a bowling meet in the morning and a dance in the evening, and ended Sunday with a banquet. Delta Chapter proved to be the outstanding Chapter in promoting community activities and on that basis received the coveted Found- er's Award. Delta's quartet showed their tal- ents by winning the songfest trophy. Thursday of the third week brought many moans from the pledges as they were loaded into cars and driven to a place unknown to them. However, upon arrival at the predetermined destination, all was well. It seems that the mem- bership had planned a pledge-1nem- ber picnic and had told the pledges nothing of what was afoot. DEBATE fC07Zff7ZIl9!J From Page Ouel Congress in case of stalemates. The afiirmative speakers held that the voters have the ability to elect a president, and that today'S system of checks and balancps must be kept. The alloting of voting power to land area, rather than tpopulation, should be halted, they ' said. Just preceding the decision Of the judges, questions raised by the audience brought forth several noteworthy points and reflected the concern and interest of the student body in this timely subject. X PW-I 'S 1 Friday. May 16. 1952 'fi i TECHNICIAN Page Five 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- nonball" losing the mound, Don Schostek losing two bits 1HEY . . . Kefauver, catch this!!!5, and our 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. -By peering through locked doors we notice that the femmes aboutl school 175 have taken up the game of tennis. The lasses are being tutored by Mr. Mobley, a man who seems to be enjoying his work. With suiiicient practice on the girls, 1 part, Tech could soon become the Wembly of Michigan. -To add a continental atmosphere to this column 1'?5 let's take a look at some of the overseas students activities. The Seniors defeated the Juniors 2 to 1 in a recent soc- cer game. Among the standouts 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. When one participant went around the course in 26 under par, they began to think something was un- natural. It was . . . All entrants are now being given a saliva test. W-Well, off to an elbow bending contest. See you next month. Garlanders Take Invifafional Tourney Paced by Mathias' booming bat' and Kessler's pitching, the Garland- ers defeated Re Kap, 3 to 2, to win the Independents Invitational Soft- l ball Tournament.

Re Kap found easy Pickings in their first three games by defeating the Bon Vivants 12 to 4, Chev Tech 12 to 1, and Gam- ma Mu Tau 19 to 6, The Garland- ers, who drew a first-round bye, battled into the finals by virtue of Wins over the Pendents and Gilgal, The playoff itself was a close ball game throughout with the winning marker coming in the last of the SlXtl'1. The first inning gave the Spectators a preview of things to Come during the evening- with two down, Del Tickle walked and IJ1'0mptly stole second. Bob Shell- house then made a bid for the run with a long drive to Tight, but the fielder made the C3,i'.Cl'l and the side was retired. The GarlaI1de1'S tagged Don Schostek's first two pitches for singles but they died on base as Don pitched himself out of the hole without being scored upon. Neither team scored until the bot- tom of the third when with two down, McDonald was safe on an error by Second Baseman Del Tickel. Five pitches later, Mathias blasted an outside curve over Left- fielder Del Parrot's head for a homer good for two runs. Those 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 -three down in the seventh. The defensive gems of the evening were supplied by the opposing short- Stops, Hoops and stoothoff who handled nine errorless chancies be- tween them. RECORD ET sw1M MEET SHORTS in SPORTS Bruno Rettig Sets New By WALT ...d ROD Mark in Breast Stroke Alpha Delt's Bruno Rettig set a new GMI record and took another first in the swimming meet held at Haskell Community Center Thursday. Gone by the boards is the old 25-yard breaststroke record of 14.3 seconds and in its place is buoyant Bruno's new mark of - 0 Bolda, Tickel. Redman Remain in Table Tennis Finals The three remaining aspirants to the table tennis crown battled it out to determine a champion. Bob Bolda 1PTA5, Del Tickel 1RKT5, and Bill Redman 1AGU5, have fought their way into the finals matches by downing an experienced iield of 33 other contestants. In advancing to the finals posi- tion, Redman trounced Richards 1GMT5, beat McNinch 1PSP5 in three games, squeezed by Rettig in an action-packed contest, and then eliminated John Fink, one of last year's finalists. Bob Bolda earned a semi-final berth by beating Williamson 1PKE5, edging Hoss 1GMT5, and trouncing Turner 1Ind.5. Bob's smashing 'returns were too much for his opponents which enabled him to battle it out in the finals. In fighting his way to the finals, Tickel knocked off Kreger 1AD5 in the first round, won the next match by a forfeit, and then barely squeezed by Blair Caplinger of Alpha Gam. Del and Bob 'will meet Monday to determine which one will oppose Redman in the cham- pionship match. Bill is favored to take the tourney honors but he will have to be at his best since neither Bob nor Del are slouches with the paddle. Schr Riiie Shooi' Section BC-4 saw a large turnout of marksmen hopefuls for the an- nual Rifle Shoot. Twenty-four as- pirants set out to try their skill in cracking that elusive bUllSGYe- Each contestant shot 15 times, three from a prone position, three kneeling, three standing, and Six from any position which the shoot- er chose. Jim Schrefiier grabbed the scor- ing honors when he posted a siz- zling 110 points, 19 more than the closest foe. The top ten men were Schreffier 11105, Roger Scott 1915, Jim Reemer 1915, Dick Whitaker 1895, Don Gates 1865, Stephen Balog 1865, Fred English 1845, Walt Swail 1785, Paul Braun 1775, and Bill Wendt 1775. 13.95 seconds. In second place behind the new mark was Roy Gore who was closely followed by Paul Braun. In the 25-yard free-style event it was Jim Crawford with a winning time of 12.9 seconds. Rettig took second in this event with third place going to Bob Smith. Dick Stoothoff's 14.5 seconds was the No. 1 time in the 25-yard back- stroke. Second place went to Crawford with Weston third. A dead heat occurred in the 50-yard free-style event when both Rettig and Tom Anderson recorded iden- tical times of 29:5 seconds. Braun was the next man over the finish line. In the 50-yard backstroke, Dick Stoothoff nailed down another first with a winning time of 33.7 seconds. Jim Crawford and Whit- amer finished second and third, re- spectively. The final event of the night found Anderson and Stoothoff wag- ing a personal battle for first place in the 100-yard free-style. Ander- son finally came in with the win- ning time of 1 minute and 10.7 seconds. Stoothoff finished second and Paul Braun grabbed third place. Rettig, Anderson, Stoothod, and Crawford stole the show by divid- ing six firsts and four seconds amond themselves. It would be difficult to choose anyone as the individual standout since Rettig, Anderson, and Stoothod each took two firsts. The meet attracted a large turn- out of entrants but most of them were eliminated in the trial heats. Despite this disappointment to a few tankers, everyone had an en- joyable night including the female onlookers. The officials for the meet were Heeb, Grive, Cantwell, Kaskell, Hothericks, Appold, and Feher. -iii - T. Kordes-"Do You ever go to see that little blonde on the ave- nue'?"

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. - Social Council 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 and females. 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- mater and an ode to their pledge- master entitled, "Dirty Bob Gar- ney." ROCKETEERS EXHIBIT JET The exhibit in the student lounge demonstrates the ever-increasing activities of the Rocket Club. The exhibit referred to is a three-foot pulse-jet rocket, which is the cur- rent project of this group. De- signed and built in the GMI ma- chine shop by Rocket Club mem- bers, the unit will be ready for test- ing in another three weeks. The club members plan to run complete analytical tests from fuel consump- tion to endurance of materials isuch as valvesj over the next sev- eral semesters. This is a relatively new club: divided into two committees, jet and rocket. The chairman, Don Gates, has done considerable work in jets, rockets, and aerothermic- dynamic ducts. Present membership numbers ap- proximately 25. Many more at- tend meetings only periodically and are not permanent members. At the last meeting a constitu- tion was passed and the club now hopes for GMTE recognition. Hopes are also held for an affiliate membership with the American Rocket Society. At the meeting held Wednesday of the first week, Mr. Beck of the Science department gave an inter- esting talk entitled "Rockets, Ram Jets, and Missiles-Guided, Un- guided, and Unheard Of." An en- thusiastic turnout of 30 students heard Mr. Beck. NEWMANITES CONVENE 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." 1 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. Ofiicers for the coming year also were elected and some plans were made for activities which will arise during the next few months.

Askounes, recently named Administrative hairman of the Dealer Cooper- C ative Training Program, takes over many of the functions and duties formerly assigned to Louis A. Mitchell, Jr., formerly Dealer Contact Representative who trans- ferred to the Distribution Staff in Detroit. Askounes had previously been a member of the Distribution Training Department, The new instructors are: Gerhard W. Sood, graduate of the GMI Engineering Program in 1951. Mr. Sood is now in the Drawlng and Design Department. Marshall J. Christian, holder of 3 B' S- degree from Michigan State llxlormal in Ypsilanti.

His music is just one of the many plans the Social Council has made to make this year's J-Prom outstanding. The Program Committee, under Blair Caplinger, has 900 programs ready to be given out. His only worry now is that 900 will not be enough. Evidence of the workings of the Publicity Committee may be seen on the bulletin boards. Jim Roberts' original posters make ideal announcements for the event. He has sent invitations to all the departments here at GMI and expects a good turn-out from the faculty as well as the student body. Jim Wooley's Decoration Committee's biggest problem is that of finding a place to keep the 40 palm trees it has constructed to grace NEW Q.P. RECORD Larry Hoagland, a Junior II Engineering student, set a new record of 90 quality points for GMI during the last BC-4 section. The previous record of 89 QP's was held by William N. Witheridge from Oldsmobile Division in Lan- sing and by Hoi-Kuo Lo, a full- 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. During the freshman and soph- omore years, Larry took an active part in the GMI band. He is a member of White Elephant Fra- ternity, where he is now house manager, and is to be president during the coming year. Larry is also W. E.'s representative to the Inter-fraternity Council. at Idaho State College at Poca- tello. Originally from Iron Moun- the IMA. The engineering, as well as artistic, talents of the commit- tee went into the building of this tropical forest. Another problem to overcome was that of attaching the leaves to the trees. The com- mittee's ingenuity has solved the problem by using coathangers as stems and staples and pitch to fasten the leaves to the stem. Some of the trees will be arranged to form an island in the center of the floor, with the remaining trees at the edges of the floor to form a background. All this makes up a "Tropical Mood" as a backdrop for Frankie Carle's "Golden Touch." "The Golden Touch" Billing Line is as much associated with Frankie Carle as his theme, "Sun- rise Serenadef' How the likeable pianist came to be known as "The Golden Touch" is questionable, but one of these stories, concern- ing its origin, is especially inter- esting.

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. Deane. 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 Dayton. 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 Silver Key. 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 extra-curricular activities. 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 l 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. ADMINISTRATION CHANGES fCofzlirmed From Page Onej gineer with an aircraft corpora- tion. Olan T. McMillan, who holds a B. S. degree at Muskingum, New Concord, Ohio. He also possesses an M. A. from the University of Michigan. Mr. McMillan has been teaching at Michigan State for six years and is now with the Math Department here. Other recent changes in the fac- ulty are: Lesli R. Beach, who has re- turned to the English and Psy- chology Department. Mr. Beach has been on military leave for a year. Daniel R. Veazey, who has also returned from military leave, is now in the Drawing and Design Department. Sam E. Raines, who was former- ly with the English Department, is now working with Program De- velopment. Charles J. Fillion, formerly with Product Service, retired in May. The staff of THE TECHNICIAN welcomes all the new faculty mem- bers to GMI on behalf of the entire student body and faculty. It also extends wishes for many years of success to the veteran faculty members on their new jobs, AUNCLE SAM SAYS: If You Wanl' a Defermenf- Do This All college students must take notice that they are deferred for one year only. If a student WiSh6S to continue his college deferment he must submit a new request for deferment. It is therefore of the utmost importance that any coop- erative student wishing to be de- ferred for the coming school year do the following things at once: 1--Give notice in writing to his local draft board that he is eligible to enroll in college for the coming year, and that he wishes to continue his defer- ment status for another year to cover that enrollmentg 2--State in writing to the local draft board that the student has requested an appropriate official of his college to send to the local board as promptly as possible his Selective Service Form 109, regarding class standing of the student for the most recently completed school yearg 3-Request the appropriate college official to send the Form 109 to the local board: 4-Give the aforementioned col- lege official the correct address of the student's local board. Students of GMI, therefore, in order to be deferred for the school year starting in October of 1952 must perform all the requirements stated above. The "appropriate college of- ficial" referred to in this case is lVlr. Stanley in Room 141. Students should note carefully that Form 109 will be sent to the individual student's draft board only if the student personally makes written request for such by Filling out the special form pro- vided for this purpose. This form may be obtained in Mr. Sl:anley'S oflice. Criterion for determining 21 student's acceptability for another year's deferment are based upon the student's grade on the Army College Qualification Test and his rank in his respective class. A grade of 70 or above is desired on the qualification test, while 21 freshman should rank in the uppel' half of his class, a sophomore in the upper two-thirds, and a junior in the upper three-fourths of his class.

The first meeting was held in Mr. Burch- field's home. Since that time the club has rapidly expanded and de- veloped, so much so that its admis- sion to the GMTE is now pending. Ofiicers have been elected. They are Roy Martin, presidentg Tom Lane, vice-presidentg Dick Whit- ney, activities chairman: Frank Walker, secretaryg and Dick Court- ney, treasurer. The club has held two open events in which anyone attending GMI could participate. The first was a 50-mile rally, which consisted ofa pre-planned course in the Flint area. Dick Courtney was the win- ning driver accompanied by his tivo navigators, Gerry More and Gene Gegol. The second event was a blind- folded obstacle run held in the parking lot. The driver had his head covered with a welding mask and drove the course according to instructions given to him by his navigator. The biggest event of the month was the Edenvale Road Races, held in Edenvale, Ontario, by the Brit- ish Motor Club. The Motor Sports Club of GMI was invited to par- ticipate. Ed Hilton, driving Louie Cas- sato's 'tTriumph" motorcycle, drove the fastest lap of the day when he was officially clocked at 112 mph On the 1M-mile track. Ed took first place in the event, crossing the finish line a full two laps ahead of his nearest rival. Dick Whitney drove his MG midget in the pouring rain to place Second in one race and third in the other event he entered. Louie Cassato, driving his "Triumph," also placed second and third in the two events he entered. The only Motor Sports Club entrant who didn't place was John Camden. During 3 practice lap John took a Curve too sharply, turning his Volkswagen over. Though his car Was completely smashed, he Walked away from the accident unhurt. The final event for the month was a trip tg Indianapolis for the 500-mile Memorial df'-Y race' Ten of the members made the Journey and attended the race 111 2 EYOUP- .X Morning Wofch Club lnspires Sfudenfs The Morning Watch Club is Scheduling, f01' Nllednesday morn- ing meetings for this section, Ed- ward Kulvander, local attorney, as their speaker. The one thing that Tech has al- ways lacked is now being remedied in the form of this Morning VVatch Club. The M.lfV.C. has, for its pur- pose, to help Christian students and faculty to know each other and to strengthen each other in their faith by providing a common meeting place where they may gather for meditation and study. Mr. C. Mobley, one of the four faculty advisors of the club, states "the Morning iVatch Club is con- tinuing to ill an apparent need of students and faculty. Each Wednes- day morning a group gathers in the auditorium whe1'e they sing a short hymn and then have a period of meditation which serves to give those present inspiration for the midweekfl Since students are away from the influence of family, concerning religion, this small donation of 25 minutes per week would be an ex- cellent opportunity to keep in good standing with those family-inspired ideals installed deep within every- one. It is hoped that continued at- tendance increase will keep this Tech Christian Fellowship moving. Why Lose Thai' Book?

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 Buick Motor Division, who is specializing in Sales Donald Schostek, a Section C junior from Fisher Cleveland, who is specializing in the members will take place at the annual banquet meiicement week in August. This time was chosen and Serviceg and Body Division in personnel. Formal initiation of held during com- to permit a large number of graduate members to attend. JET JOCKEYS ASSEMBLE ENGINE 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- ties were made soon afterwards. 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 by which the theory is put into practical application. Mobley Presidenl' Mr. Charles A. Mobley, Super- visor of Student Relations Services at GMI, having been a member of the Board of Directors of the In- ternational Institute for the past five years, was elected to serve as president for the next year. The International Institute is an organization providing community services to all nationalities. Spe- cial services to new Americans in- clude classes in English and assist- ance in naturalization problems. This year, 18 men were accepted into the Alpha Tau Iota society. They were Sophomores Paul John- son, Chevrolet Bay Cityg William Oram, Chevrolet Central Office, Frank lValker, Buickg Robert Wright, Cadillacg Juniors Kenneth Ahsmuhs, Buick, Joe Bordman, Central Foundry Saginaw Mal- leableg Robert Dutro, AC Spark Plugg John Fink, Fisher Central Engineeringg Lawrence Hoagland, GM Research Labg Louis Papale, Brown-Lipe Chaping Ralph Parker, Guide Lampg James Patterson, Fisher Body Pontiac, James Wal- ler, Fisher Body Grand Rapidsg and Robert Welther, Fisher Cen- tral Engineering. Senior initiates were John Campbell, Chevrolet Central Officeg Dennis Chapman, Allisong and Ralph Norberg, GMC Truck and Coach. Also being initiated as faculty advisor is Charles L. Tutt, Jr., GMI Admin- istrative Chairman in charge of the Fifth-Year Program. AMA HAS PICNIC The American Management As- sociation had as its social function this month a picnic at Lake Fenton. For the total sum of G0 cents per person, food, drinks, swimming, baseball. a illflf-OI'-XV9.1', and a won- derful afternoon of relaxing was offered. The AMA, in cooperation with the SAE, is planning a fall tour through the new GM Technical Center. This tour, in itself, will be worth the cost of a SC1llQStGIf,E dues, which have recently been raised from 31.25 to 31.50. if A 1' 4 J ' A--L... XX H 1 V 1 f A .'. 7 ?'-U QL . . ., " f -'-ri-Qisshl.

When Bud May- er, a top-notch piano player, gets together with Norm Foley, a com- poser, anything can happen. A quartet is now being planned with a hearty response. Ronald Herman, however, 'prefers to listen to rec- ords, his favorite being "Little Brown Gal." A recent survey, through the house, finds the Waltz, "Beautiful Ohio," to be the No. 1 tune of the month. With the long section coming to a close, the men of Phi Sig are venting their increasing humor by resorting to practical jokes. One "sack" entire nights to ac- no longer retires to the without first checking the dorm for deviltry. Certain the men have been known cumulate several mattresses, while on others the poor souls have none. It has been feared that entire beds might one night disappear. Oh well, sleeping on the smooth dorm floor might not prove to be too .un- comfortable! , 1. l Phi Tau Talk Thursday evening preceding Me- morial day, the membership of Phi Tau fied from the fair city of Flint that was or Mich- local die- and just fort" on in any path or direction not obstructed by water igan roads. Only a few hard golfers, fun lovers, lovers, "held down the Neome drive. The week end was highlighted by a visit from Brother Bob Leppel- meier. Bob has transferred from Cleveland Chevrolet to a local lake front dealership. He plans to re- turn to our campus, come fall, providing he doesn't get drafted. Phi Tau has increased its mem- bership by the initiation of 13 well- indoctrinated pledges. The yearly senior party was held Thursday evening of the third week of this section. Seniors who served were Roberts, Moore, Forward, and Committee Chairman Ed Grabovac. Kappa Kapers Much has been accomplished around the PKE house this month, though it has passed by so rapidly. Ten more men now bear the title of "members" This pledge class has done itself proudly in that every pledge who began pledgeship with this group has completed it. Remodeling of the shower room and general spring cleaning of the house were the main improve- ments in and around the house. Plans for the remodeling of the garage, so as to improve the use of its facilities, are being considered. This month has been devoted primarily to studies. The proverb "If you have nothing to say, don't say it! If you have nothing to do, do it in the garage!" has been observed. The main social event of the past month is to be comprised of a lawn party to precede the Junior Prom, Saturday of fourth week. Attendance at this party is expect- ed to be large since the function is to follow the usual annual inter- sectional meeting. In appreciation of the good pitching job done by Leonard Radionoff, a special dinner of "live turtle" was served to him. Al- though presented under the best of intentions, and the fanciest of dish towels, Lenny insisted on something dead and cooked. After long deliberation he was allowed to participate in the usual well- prepared meal. -lili- Gamma Mu Views The wail of iioundering seniors was heard over the past week as the pledges of Gamma Mu Tau banded together to perpetuate the custom of christening the Senior lI's, prior to graduation. This was accomplished in many new and dif- ferent ways. The most popular fashion for the Class of '52 seemed to be a 6-in, deep mud puddle. This, mixed with gravel and mud, accomplished amazing results. Final results were nine soaking wet, muddy, and slightly scratched sen- iors. Since the institution of the ice- cream vending machine at the house there has been a frantic race to see who could collect the most wrappers. Such gifts as Hopalong Cassidy Sheridf Badges, beach balls, junior chemistry sets, etc., have created quite an incentive for the collectors. The leaders, at last count, were the seniors, having ac- cumulated a total of over 150 wrappers. Their goal is 50,000 which, they assure the rest of the membership, entitles them to a blonde. iAIpha Gam This month, Alpha Gard initiated 13 new men. Following the for- mal ceremony at the Delta Chap- ter house, a banquet was held at Cromer's restaurant in honor of these new members. "Sparky" Force, the executive secretary of AGU's national board, took this opportunity to present a new cup honoring Delta Chapter's "Fraternity Man of the Year." On this cup are engraved the names of 16 men who, since 1937, have received the Board of Directors' Key for outstanding work. Our thanks to "Sparky" for this lasting tribute. The third week end found the Alpha Gains entertaining their dates with a dance and wiener roast at Goudy lake. After a truce with the Michigan mosquitoes, a good time was had by all. A promise of excitement is seen also in the fourth week end. The first aEair will be the annual meet- ing of the Alpha Gams of all four school sections. The main article of business is thefelection of men to serve with President-elect Ross Humphries. The same evening brings Alpha Gam to the J-Prom. Plans at the Alpha Gam house call for breakfast and more dancing. It all adds up to a wonderful ending to a won- derful section. Del'l'a Dafa The parking situation at Alpha Delt is going from bad to worse. Last winter, it was necessary to put the cars in with a shoehorn and a crowbar. With a month's prac- tice the boys were getting pretty good at it. Now, however, a lift truck is needed to stack them in tiers. Chuck Luthe wasn't even consid- erate enough to buy a small carp he had to have a big Oldsmobile. Don Coon was more co-operative, though. He even cut off the fen- ders and running boards of his Chevrolet coupe. He figured the fenders would be taken off anyhow. Then there is the guy, whose name is not worth mentioning, who's blowing his stack about an invitation to the courthouse that he received one night. The strong arm in the blue sleeve followed him right into the drive of the house. "Doggonit, Charlie Tripp," the de-- linquent moaned, "I d0n't mind you razzing me, but if you try that again with the cop standing right there, you're going to wake up some morning with your face Gilgal . Gilgal's fighting keystone com- bination has been broken up. Red "Hopalong" McCarthy and "Spin- ner" Eakes are no longer the key- stone kids. Red has been promoted to the catching spot, since a young prospect, "Uncle Nick" Zinicola is covering second base and doing a fine job. This being the season for spring cleaning, Red McCarthy, Gilgal's study and the lawn. a specific efficiency. methods man, did a time job analysis for cutting Each man was assigned job to do, for increased The supervisory position seems to suit Red well. Recently, a group has been dele- gated to investigate the identity of the unknown culprit who has been raiding Gilgal's pear trees. Latest reports indicate the marauder to be a bushy-tailed brown squirrel who was seen several times about the scene of the crime. Although he seems to be an amiable cuss, the committee fears that the presence of some of his relatives might prove disastrous to the coming pear crop. After completing eight weeks of pledgeship and undergoing formal initiation, four new men were wel- comed into the ranks of Gilgal fraternity. This leaves the house with one pledge, a condition which, it is hoped, will soon be remedied by the enlistment of four new pledges. The wrinkles which can be noted on the face of Gilgal's house man- ager, James Grierson, are due to the excessive burden of care brought on by the installment of a new S700 rug in the living room and reception room. New house rule: members will please refrain from wearing shoes while enjoying the comforts of the living room! pushed down so far, you'll be known as 'Puss in Boots'." The odds are 8 to 1 that Dick Pavlak won't have his brand-new, shiny fraternity pin when he comes back in September. The odds on which one of the "junior" members will keep theirs longest run all the way from 8 to 1 on Pavlak to 1 to 20 on "Make-out Artist" Oldis, who traveled 740 miles to New York City and then couldn't get a date. This trip to NYC, over the sec- ond week end, was quite an affair. The boys got back about 4 o'clock Monday morning. Pavlak claimS he would have been here by mid- night but Griflies had to have an ice-cream cone every 50 miles and "Knobby" Walsli wanted to st0P at every eighth gas station. He didn't say why. .-......,f.-.-...-s... L 1 J 'ii'3'll'f1'li'l .l'T5'., 1 ' . .-. - 1 ,..,,. X it 1 l I T E c H N 1 c 1 A N Page Five friday.

PARTING SHOT-An open let- ter to John Spring: "By unanimous vote of your erstwhile opponents, you are hereby ruled illegal." Overseas and Boys Mee'l' for Tennis Ti'I'Ie Perennially a favorite in the GMI tennis tournaments, the Over- seas team for the second year in a row entered the finals. Last year they met defeat from Phi Kap in a four-hour marathon. This year, they will be opposed by an inde- pendent team called "The Boys." In gaining the finals, The Boys have had the tougher schedule. They own victories over Alpha Delt, Gamma Mu, and Phi Kap. Gamma Mu had previously tri- umphed over Phi Tau while Phi Kap claimed victories over entries from White Elephant and Alpha Gam. Dick Bradiield captains "The Boys" who include Jack Trieka, Carl Peck, Bob Seidel, Jim Ryan, and Dick Meade. The power of the Overseas team 11115 only twice been tested. The Indies and Gilgal fell easy prey to the classy group of foreign stu- dents.

Ve1'S'C1'2Bt9U and Dobell make up the first dou- bles team while Alan McMillan and Donald Wylie, both of whom hail from Australia, compose the sec- Ond doubles team. Lg ---Mc .. . .,., P hi Tau-Alpha Gam in Title Clash isrnme MEETS eRABovAc IN EINALS 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. Alpha Gam met Phi Tau in the finals of the winners' bracket and Ohm . . , - a 1 l gained the victory, 7-1, as J Spring pitched a thiee hitter fanned 16. Grabovac garne two of the hits.

Alpha Delt had previously beat- en Phi Kap after trailing 5-2 going into the sixth inning. Len Radion- 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. S if 3 Bill Rachilla of Phi Kap takes a healthy swat at one of Charlie Tripp's offerings in the PKE-Alpha Deli' game. "Nobby" Walsh is the man behind the bat, and Um- pire Jim Ealtes scrutinizes the play. THINCLADS HOBBLE RECORD TOPPLES A warm Saturday afternoon greeted a hundred enthusiasts who turned out for the annual track meet. Phi Tau annexed the team championship by taking 42 out of a possible 152 points, while Pierre Verstraeten grabbed the in- dividual laurels with 17 points. The versatile Belgian took two firsts and tied for another. He leaped 19 feet, 391 inches in the broad jump, ran the hundred yard dash in 10.5 seconds to tie Emil Bair of PTA, and climaxed the day with a neat 2:09.11 in the 880-yard dash. Roy Gore, running unattached, waged a spirited duel with Bob Forward in the high jump with the result of a tie at 5 feet 4M inches. Gore blasted the old 120-yard low hurdles record by establishing a new mark of 13.85 seconds. Gam- ma Mu's John Eblacker followed Gore across the finish line in 14.1 seconds. ' Emil Bair picked up an easy victory in the 16-pound shot-put with a heave of 35 feet. He was followed by Blair Caplinger and John Schneider, who tossed 34 and 33 feet, respectively. Jim Greenly and Bob Forward both made leaps of over 19 feet in the broad jump while a dying Phi Tau team copped the 880-yard relay with a winning time of 1:40.6. Gamma Mu grabbed second place in the event with 1:42.6. Verstraeten was the individual standout of the meet and himself was second behind Phi Tau in total points. Congratulations are in or- der for Mr. Pegram and Mr. Mob- ley, who sponsored and ran the event. lm.. , l i Ifllf- 1 l .

AGU AND RE KAP PADDLE ONWARD 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 Tickel and Bob Hackler downed Bob Forward and Heinlen in the first doubles match and "Fearless'l teamed with Don Schostek to de- feat Grabovac and Roberts in the second doubles match to give Re Sodality members, enjoyed a picnic at Flushing park. During the morning and after- noon breaks of the second week, on l Wednesday and Thursday, elections' were conducted for president, sec- retary, and treasurer of the club, for the coming school year. Finall results of the voting will be de-5 cidci by the elections to be held in section AD-5. 1 A Newman night was hcld duringi the third week with another prom-3 inent speaker featured. Speech Club At the meeting during the second week, use was made of a tape re- corder and new style television "mike" by the members. v Mr. Rob- ert Carter from GMI's Speech De- partment gave able assistance and valuable guidance to the members during the recording session. After- wards the members voted to do further mike work at the meeting during the third week. Personal profit is the current theme being stressed by the Speech Club. All members are encouraged to speak freely so that constructive criticism can be offered them whereby they can gain more self confidence and better speech quali- ties. Increased activities are in store for the club with a tentative speak- ing engagement with the student nurses at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit some time this summer and a possible speech performance at the First Methodist Church in Flushing on Sunday of the third week. Entertainment this month, for the club, consisted of a jaunt William H. Doerfner, General Man- ager of Saginaw Steering Gear Division.

Crowe,l General Manager of Detroit Diesel: Engine Division. -l,li.?l ShuH'erbugs The peak of the Camera Club's activities this month was centered in thelthird ,week when a demon- stration of retouching and coloring was featured at their meeting. This demonstration was presented by' Mrs. Helen Bench, a retouch and coloring artist at Fortune Studios, Flint. The turnout for this feature was as good as had been expected. During the summer months, many of the members plan to put their shutter bugs on a busy sched- ule. We all should be looking for- ward to a wide display of talent in the near future. Lasf Dance The mixer dance, "Blossom Serenade," held Friday evening of the first week, took the general theme of springtime. Conrad Strozik served as chairman of the decoration committee, which did a magnificent job on the theme background. Music was provided by Brahm Ward and his orchestra.
