WOOD GRAY DEPARTMENT OF HISTORT " X ms Jeorge The Washington L niversit Library DOES EOT CIRCULATE I 1 EDITED BY HELEN S. BUNTEN Editor HARRY AMES Business Manager PUBLISHED BY THE STUDENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY THE GEORGE WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY WASHINGTON, D. C. Ol UL LD mi This issue of the Cherry Tree is a distinct innovation in the production of college annuals. It has been our aim to produce a book con- venient in size, moderate in cost, and more rep- resentative in its scope than those of former years. We have attempted to present a clear record of the events of the academic year and of the activities of the student body. We have sacrificed much of the unnecessary display of the usual annual to make possible a more nat- ural and informal treatment of the subject matter. We wish to express our thanks to those who have made this book possible: Mr. W. A. Dan- iel of the Benson Printing Company, Mr. E. F. Deady of the Standard Engraving Company, Mr. H. W. Herzog, Graduate Manager of Publications, Mr. D. B. Edmonston, and to the members of the staff of the 1936 Cherry rREE - H. S. B. 509869 WE DEDICATE The 1936 volume of The Cherry Tree to the recently appointed Dean of The Junior College, William Crane Johnstone. Dean Johnstone is one of the best liked professors at George Washington, by students and faculty alike; a distinguished authority on Eastern affairs; and the youthful recipient of an honored position, i i ARCH OF EVENTS The year 1935-36 has been an outstanding one in the history of The George Washington University. The university has achieved signal successes in the development of education. A new building program has been started on the road to fulfillment. Athletics touched a new high in certain fields. Certainly we of The Cherry Tree welcome this opportunity to preserve the poignant memories of our school’s successes even as we feel duty bound to record the bitter taste of some of our setbacks. If this record in later years will serve to recall even a few of the incidents of our college careers we shall feel amply rewarded. Our aim has not been to dogmatize, nor write a cold, dry history. Life in a university fortunately is very seldom of that nature. If we have caught the tempo and spirit of the year sufficiently to call to mind in after years an incident here or there, our job will be well done. Thus it is with a feeling of pride and hope that in this edition of The Cherry Tree we present a new March of Events. 10 SEPTEMBER 2, 1935 The first signs of the new school year — football men start to pour into the training camp at Camp Letts, Md. Prospects look bright for the team during the new year. The redoubtable ' Tuffy Leemans is back, as are also Captain Deming, Rathjen, Plotnicki, Von- der Bruegge, and Kolker, all of whom are seniors and experienced men. Several sophs are showing much promise and will probably see considerable action. Coach " Possum” Jim Pixlee takes things easy at first, but before very long the heavy work begins. Jim has to look forward to that Alabama game in several weeks. The bright spot of the camp period is, of course, the stage setting for the news reel camera. And who will forget squirming in the mud for a greasy oval just in order to please the hungry public? But the bo ys love it. At least it is a change from the drudgery of sleep, eat, and calisthenics. Incidentally, G. W.’s training camp and equipment are among the most modern in the country. Equipment includes pulley harnesses and weighted block dummies among others. A new backfield coach, Bill Reinhart, begins his career at G. W. this fall at Camp Letts, coming here from Oregon. Welcome, Bill! G. W. rated 38 in national ranking last year according to the Football Annual, grid bible, with the all-American check list containing the names of Harry Deming, Kenneth Rathjen, and " Tuffy” Leemans. After the longest training camp period G. W. has known, the squad returns to Washington in time to enroll in school and get settled down to routine work before their first game. Line Coach Len Walsh is in great need of replacements. The stalwart for- ward wall of 1934 that yielded only 20 first downs all season is left with several gaps which must be filled at once. Len has several first-string prospects, but is sorely in need of experienced men and substitutes to replace Hank Strayer, Ed Clark, and Bill Parrish. At present it looks as if Harrison, Prather, and Shelton will get the nod. ti SEPTEMBER 21, 23, AND 24 Wandering freshmen are seen in the process of doing what all wandering freshmen are supposed to do, namely, wander (a thousand pardons, freshmen) . For three days the struggle goes on. Of course, the most hectic scene is at the Admissions Office, where those who have to find lost credits or who " just decided to enter on the spur of the moment” attempt to get something accomplished. When last viewed on the evening of the 24th there was a line winding out of the building and down the length of G street. The professors who worked there were especially pleased over the large volume of business they had. One rather well-known Public Speaking prof was heard to say, " I thought this was a soft job, but look at me now. They won’t even let me eat.” Now, Henry! Incidentally, the fratres and sorores have just started in a big way their an- nual polite (oh, ever so polite) throat cutting. Chi O just never will forgive Pi Phi for that dirty deal they pulled back in ’34. So now is the time for all good brethren to come forward and " really go after those freshmen.” Poor freshmen! After registration one is given a number between 1 and 7000 and is marchd, no, not to a cell, but to a camera. Pictures must be taken for one’s activity book. Coming back days later to get your book with completed picture, you probably found that it didn’t come out and must sit again. Could you prove to the gate keeper that that picture was really yours? SEPTEMBER 25 Classes start today. Much wandering about looking for building Y, alias Corcoran, by new students and old alike. Several new professors have appeared on the roster. Among them are Dr. Teller, visiting professor in physics; Dr. Herrick, associate professor in English; Dr. Compton, assistant professor in law; 12 Dr. Hansen, assistant professor in zoology; Dr. Whitelaw, as- sistant professor of education; Dr. Beeuwkes, instructor in civil engineering; Mr. Ful- bright, instructor in law; Dr. Hazlet, instructor in chemistry; Dr. Kunz, instructor in chemis- try; Dr. Naeser, instructor in chemistry; Mr. Ward, instruc- tor in law, and editor of the Law Review in the absence of John A. Mclntire, who is on sabbatical leave; Mr. Watson, instructor in eco- nomics; and Mr. White and Dr. Engle, lecturers in marketing. And, above all, a new building! Erected during the summer months, this edifice has four floors and a pent-house laboratory for the botany department. When finally completed, later in the year, the basement of Building H, the new one, will include a Student Club and store (which will later prove very popular with the student body as a place to meet) . One afternoon in the late fall, Prerident Marvin and a few others gathered around to watch the datestone put in place. SEPTEMBER 25 FROSH MIXER The freshmen are properly mixed. In the annual Student Council mixer an attempt is made to introduce the newly registered students to members of the fraternities that they are being rushed. K. A.’s will, however, insist on rushing all the S. A. E.’s whom they don ' t know, and vice versa. The function, as usual, was a howling success in more ways than one. If the committee would be really honest and call this 13 merely a Mixer, not a " frosh” mixer, it would be appreciated. The frosh are always outnumbered at least three to one, and the girls four to one. This year was no exception. Harry Ames, the social chairman of the Student Council, supervised the ar- rangements for the affair. Breaking the precedent set for several years, the mixer was held in the gymnasium rather than Corcoran or Stockton Hall. SEPTEMBER 27 The first football game of the year, with Emory and Henry, found serious defects in both the Colonial offense and defense. G. W. won, but only by a score of 12-0. It was an inspired little team which kept the Colonials at bay all evening, even though Plotnicki and Leemans had a fine time passing the ball to and fro. But Jim Pixlee is getting grey hair in spite of the news that the Alabama aggregation was held to a tie by Howard College. OCTOBER 5 One cf the best teams in the country trekked to Washington yesterday. The Crimson Tide from Alabama, Rose Bowl champions of last year, rolled into town with a great amount of fanfare. And before they had left our fair city, they rolled over a completely outclassed G. W. team to the tune of 39-0. Never- theless, this game was the football highlight of the year in Washington. Prob- ably more people attended than will attend any other played in D. C. this season; they saw a practically perfect football machine in operation. Alabama may not be the Rose Bowl choice of this season, but if they maintain the pace they set today there would be no doubt as to the best team in the country. Each play came off like clock work. 14 The game was not utterly devoid of cheer to the G. W. rooters, however. For today there appeared a new Colonial drum major in charge of the Buff and Blue band. Drum Major, and by drum major we mean Drum Major Warnock, is in a class all of his own. He prances like a horse. He ca- vorts. He capers. All in all, he is a show in himself. Later in the season he is going to intro- duce twin batons and twirl them with balls of fire on each end at night games. Novel? The audience seemed to think so. SEPTEMBER 27-OCTOBER 6 Freshmen are treated to a week of dining, dancing, smokers, and parties, which are all put on for their entertainment by fraternities. Houses are scrubbed and cleaned. For an entire week fraternity men are imbued with " ye old fraternity spirit.” This is the time when the pictures of famous alums are pulled out from closets and the scrap books get fixed up to include every piece of publicity. Pledging takes place Sunday morning. OCTOBER II. CATAWBA. Tonight the Catawba Indians went down to defeat in a field of slime before a mightier team when they met with a 33-0 licking by the Colonials. G. W. was on a rampage after the Alabama game, to show its public that it could play ball, and showed a complete reversal of last week’s form. Tuffy Leemans made three touchdowns. Herb Reeves ran 34 yards to score the first touchdown of his college career; Bruce Mahan, promising soph, came through with the other one. OCTOBER 6-14 Sororities begin where the fraternities left off. The Pan-Hellenic Council gave its annual opening tea last week on September 29 — an unusually swanky affair this year, in the Chinese room of the Mayflower Hotel. Everyone has something to eat except the sorority women — it cost so much per plate. Formal rush period begins October 6, with all the sororities inviting all freshmen to teas given in their respective rooms. A week of luncheons, studio parties, pirate 15 parties, candlelight parties, bridge parties, dances, fol- lows. It’s a tie as to whether rushers or rushees were most exhausted. The heavy work cf snatching and grabbing was over with the final party on Monday. Friday, 108 girls floated about the University wearing the corsages of the " best sorority on the campus.” OCTOBER 16 Fall Convocation was held this noon in Corcoran Hall. 105 degrees and 74 junior college certificates were conferred. President Mar- vin, in his charge to the graduates, spoke of the importance of this ceremony, despite its small size. OCTOBER 18 G. W.-W. VA. The Buff and Blue chalked up its first major victory tonight when it defeated the West Virginia Mountaineers, 15-7. West Virginia made its touchdown and conversion in the first quarter. The second quarter saw the Colonials let loose and score two touchdowns, convert a placement, and take advantage of an automatic safety. Ben Plotnicki made a spectacular play when he sprinted down the field 93 yards for a touchdown after intercepting a pass. Herb Reeves matched this with a 72-yard run for the second touchdown of the evening. In victorious mood, the student body trooped to the Willard for the first of the post-game dances sponsored by the Student Council. 16 OCTOBER 26 George Washington’s eleven travelled to Wake Forest, North Carolina, to be upset by Wake Forest College, 7-6. This week the breaks were against the Colonials, and although statistics prove that G. W. outclassed their opponents, they pay off on those extra points! OCTOBER 30-31 The annual melee of Stu- dent Council elections is in full swing — two days of grand con- fusion in the halls of Corcoran with the Progressives lined up on one side and the Service party supporters on the other. Both harangue a voter from the moment he shows the least sign of being interested. With reluctance they let their frightened prey escape over the deadline across which no campaigner is supposed to step. It turns out that an election isn’t necessary for Columbian College when half the candidates are yet in Junior College. NOVEMBER 1-2 George Washington’s fourth annual homecoming festivities were held on the week-end of the Rice game. This was the most pretentious, stupendous, and colossal celebration yet. 17 The Colonials opened their celebration by entering a sorority and fraternity float in the Hallowe’en parade on Thursday night. A general university as:emb!y ( " pep rally”) was held in the University Yard Friday evening preceding 5 o’clock classes. President Marvin, Chairman Robert P. Smith of the Homecoming Committee, and Professor Kirkland ad- dressed the students; the band played; and yells were forthcoming to instill that " proper spirit.” But best of all — classes didn ' t start until 5:30. That night a huge rally was held on the Monument grounds with a bonfire, fireworks and street dancing. Fraternities held open house throughout the week-end. In general, G. W. picked up where the city’s Hallowe’en celebration left off. And that was a real bonfire, too. Saturday afternoon saw the local scholars pack the student section and half of Washington fill the stands at the ball park to see the G. W.-Rice football game. Although the Colonials played heads-up ball, the Owls from Texas rolled up 41 points, two points more than Alabama did, against the Buff and Blue who just couldn’t make a score. Despite this, the Colonials played their best game to date. They pulled a spread formation out of their bag of tricks that spread G. W. players all over the field and caught the Rice players " flatfooted.” The Colonials ended the half and the game with a first down on Rice’s one- foot line and had the 16,000 spectators in a frenzy of hope thinking it was a touchdown. Spectacular but heart-breaking football. Between the halves the Shriners’ Band joined the G. W. Band in serenading the stands. The Rousers’ Club put on several of the card displays, " Welcome Alumni,” and a unique formation in honor of the Owls, for which they are noted. The club presented a stuffed owl to Rayborn Mayo, Rice cap- tain, and O. D. K. presented Mrs. Cloyd Heck Marvin with a bouquet. The climax to this annual period of reunion, backslapping, and handshaking, was the annual Homecoming Ball, given at the Willard Hotel on Saturday evening. See you next year, ’96. Sorority and fraternity banners decorated the huge ballroom, and after the Grand March the presentation of the cup for the best decorated fraternity house was made to Sigma Chi; S. A. E. placed second. 18 NOVEMBER 8 Tonight G. W. ran up its largest score since 1931 when it swamped Davis- Elkins to the tune of 53-7. Captain Deming wondered if he were running in a track meet and Tuffy got tired crossing the goal line. From the opening minute, the Colonials began scoring and kept on. Less than 20-yard gains were unusual. NOVEMBER 15 G. W.-TULSA It was Friday, and the Colonials, amid a torrent of rain, held the Tulsa Oilers to a 3-0 score in a real thriller. 12,000 fans braved the inclement weather to see these rivals fight it out. After three quarters were vainly spent in attempting to do something about the score, when spread plays, passes, and straight football had all failed, G. W. got a break. Harry Deming’s chest got in the way of a Tulsa pass; the locals recovered. And after being held to fourth down, Captain Deming, in answer to the pleading stands, put a neat placement through the uprights from the 31 -yard line. The remainder of the game was nip and tuck, but when the team ran off the field to the showers, the score was still 3-0. Though dampened physically from two hours in the rain, students were not dampened in spirit at the Student Council dance held at the Washington Hotel following the game. NOVEMBER 16 A two-day conclave for high school journalists convened here yesterday. The meeting is under the auspices of the George Washington Scholastic Press. Among other things, eminent newspapermen were kept cooling their heels for an entire hour while the delegates finished lunchon. The conferees attended the Tulsa game and dance yesterday. Tonight the convention will be climaxed by a banquet addressed by Sir Lewis, correspondent of the London Times. 19 ■ mm nn |; NOVEMBER 21-22 UNION ELECTIONS After weeks, nay months, of big political doings, the G. W. Student Union holds its election today and tomorrow. With party platforms, ardent campaign- ers, and real voting machines, the election came off in true election style. The 1,465 students who voted gave the Center party half the Union seats. NOVEMBER 28 THANKSGIVING DAY Time off from studies to eat turkey and stuffing. Today the Colonials gave thanks and closed their 1935 football season with a win. In a game played in a treacherous field of rain and mud, in which players lost their identity and spectators became thoroughly drenched, the Colonials placed a 13-0 score over North Dakota University. Between halves, Leemans, the perennial star, received a diamond-studded gold football in recognition of his three years of brilliant playing. Five other Colonial stalwarts, Captain Harry Deming, Sid Kolker, Red Rathjen, Ben Plotnicki, and Henry Yonder Bruegge, laid aside their red, white, and blue suits with this game. 20 Holiday spirit reigned at the last post-game dance, held tonight at the Shoreham Hotel. NOVEMBER 18-26 A series of sports competitions for women is being sponsored this week by the Women’s Phys. Ed. Department. A hundred young Amazons are participating in the various games and competitions for awards to be made at the annual fall banquet. DECEMBER 9 BASKETBALL OPENS The Colonials are destined to go places on the basketball court this year with seven veterans returning to the squad and a new basketball coach in the person of Bill Reinhart to groom them for their grind. Hal Kiesel, Ben Goldfadden, Walter Bakum, George Freilicher, Clarence Berg, Milton Schoenfeld a nd Tuffy Leemans are all returning. Tonight, in their first game, they trounced Shenandoah to the tune of 50-16. DECEMBER I I With much pomp and circumstance, the Student Union held its first meeting tonight in the auditorium of the U. S. Chamber of Commerce. The Rev. Ed- mund Walsh, regent of Georgetown University, was the guest speaker. Dele- gates were formally dressed and Ted Pierson was installed as President of Union. DECEMBER 12 The Buff and Blue cagers were in Columbus tonight fighting Ohio State’s powerful five. The Colonials got going nicely in the first half, but the Bucks out-basketed them in the last period, rolling up 36 points to G. W.’s 27 because of our lack of practice. 21 DECEMBER 13-14 Speakers to the right of us, speakers to the left of us — The third annual conclave of public speaking students from neighboring high schools, under the auspices of our own Public Speaking department, swarmed upon the University today. They held a lengthy huddle as well as seeing the play. The first Cue and Curtain play of the season, " She Loves Me Not,” is to be given tonight and tomorrow at Roosevelt High. As the ads put it: " A riot of romance in a Princeton dorm with a girl who knew all the answers.” When none of the campus blondes showed histrionic talent coupled with ability to tap dance, Curly Flagg, the night club dancer, became a brunette in the person of Betty Crawford, who sacrificed her coiffure for her art. With true Cue and Curtain hospitality, demi-tasse and cigarettes were served during intermission (to wake patrons up). Local boy makes good! Jerry Sickler made copy for the nation’s papers and the March of Time on the radio when, in true Sicklerian manner, he did the impossible and crashed the Gridiron banquet to serve papers on Magnate Henry Doherty. DECEMBER 15 A dream is on the road to becoming a reality. On this day ground was broken for the construction of our first dormitory, ' Strong Hall.” Gone is the office of President Marvin and in its place will rise a six-story building of Georgian design. Here 100 women will find a college home. A pent-house planned as a game room and a roof solarium are two attractions. A general assembly room and an open fireplace in the reception hall are also incorporated in the plans. 22 The dormitory was donated by Mrs. Henry Alvah Strong, who was elected a member of the Board of Trustees in 1931, and is now president of the Strong Foundation. As Presi- dent Marvin said, " Mrs. Strong has the heartfelt gratitude of all associated with George Washington.” DECEMBER 10-24 FOOD DRIVE With unusual zest for doing things, organizations and individuals became imbued with the spirit of giving in George Washington’s annual Food Drive. A familiar scene was the sight of someone running into Building M with four cans of beans. And who will forget the fun of putting in a doll here because there was a little girl in this house, or a ball there because the little boy asked for one? But when all was said and done, G. W. had played Santa to 1,400 and Christmas dinners went out to 175 needy families. The silver cup for most donations was won by Tau Epsilon Phi. DECEMBER 2 l-JANUARY 2 Books aside, studies forgotten. In their stead a hustle and bustle to re- member everyone with either gifts or cards, and trim the tree. Parties, dances, teas pile up and make it very hard to come back to the grind. 23 JANUARY 7 Troubadjurs died a slow, but natural death today. Came the Faculty Dramatics committee announcement that there will be no show in 1936 due to the deficit and fear of another " Bride of the Incas.” Better luck next year. JANUARY 7 With a sprig of laurel A1 Heckel, Andrew Knappen, Sidney Kolker, Tuffy Leemans, Bernard Margolius, Ross Pope, Bernard Holden, Gordon Potter, and Everett Strandell were tapped into O. D. K. tonight.. JANUARY I I PLEDGE PROM Tonight is the pledges’ big chance to strut. Their annual Interfraternity Pledge Prom is being carried out this year with the help of an imported band, the Baltimore Townsmen, and the very swanky ball room of the Kennedy- Warren. Delegates with royal purple stripes across their manly bosoms, white ties and tails, their dates with purple-tied gardenias, make it an ultra-ultra affair. Placques showing pledge pins were decorations. JANUARY 13 The Richmond Spiders came here today to revenge a previous G. W. basket- ball victory, but they were fooled. The Colonials turned them back, 43-25. " Mickey Mouse” Schonfeld was outstanding by scoring 10 points. JANUARY 14 The taste of victory over Richmond was so good that the Colonials encored tonight at the expense of Villanova, 31-23, at the Tech High gym. This was the Colonials’ seventh win in eight starts this season. 24 JANUARY 25-FEBRUARY I Mad confusion! The semi-yearly scramble for notes that haven’t been taken — books that have been misplaced. The time when students begin laying red apples (figuratively speaking) on professors’ desks; when we wonder why we took all those cuts. In other words — Exams are with us once again. JANUARY 27 OHIO STATE Ohio State came here during the finals expecting to repeat that previous lone defeat of the G. W. five. The Colonials having improved, however, the result was a 45-23 victory for the Reinhartmen. Tippy Dye, Ohio quarterback, proved that he was a great quarterback, but not such a basketball player. FEBRUARY 1-7 We’ve been awaiting this recess since September. But we bite our nails until our grades come, and then the opportunity is gone. Registration is here. So on and on — ad infinitum. Classes again — and we’re not sorry. Scuffles for seats, etc. 25 FEBRUARY 15 A Colonial flood swept through West Virginia yesterday and today. It drowned Davis-Elkins, 70-52, and the Mountaineers, 42-28. FEBRUARY 17-18 FINE ARTS MOVE Fine Arts going to a new building? And all these embryonic Rembrandts have spent years glorifying the walls of the old building. It’s a shame. FEBRUARY 20-21 CHERRY BLOSSOM SALE When the prettiest co-eds lurk in every corner ready to pounce out with a flower and beg you to buy it, you can bet it’s " Cherry Blossom Time.” FEBRUARY 21 Once a year the he-men in the Engineering School break down and go social. Tonight is their big night at the annual ball at the Kennedy-Warren Hotel. FEBRUARY 22 CONVOCATION On this, Washington ' s birthday, Dr. Marvin called the faculty and graduates together in the University’s one hundred and fifteenth annual winter Convoca- tion. Rev. Cadman addressed the assembly on the need for imagination in leadership. 104 degrees and certificates were awarded. FEBRUARY 20-22 The Washington boys went to the big city, but the New Yorkers showed them that a winning streak of thirteen games is bad luck. St. Johns of Brook- lyn downed G. W., 29-27. Long Island did the same, 43-31. FEBRUARY 25 Recently Len Walsh, one of G. W.’s best-liked coaches, and Trainer Roland Logan have resigned to assume duties elsewhere, leaving a wide breach to fill. FEBRUARY 28 The Frosh Mixer, that strangest of events given to provide freshmen an op- portunity to meet upperclassmen, usually ends when an upperclassman swoons, and awakes insisting that he saw a freshman sitting in the corner. MARCH 4 Lafayette College showed they had a better swimming team than football team by defeating the G. W. natators, 50-18. In the tank the Colonials have had an unfortunate year, losing the present coach, Max Rote, from the point- winning column. G. W. got but one first place this time. 27 MARCH 6 New gowns and coiffures for the co-eds, the latest duds for the men, for tonight is the Annual Interfraternity Prom. Glen Gray and his famous band will play, and John Molyneaux and " Lord” Lusby will lead the parade on the stroke of twelve. Cups are awarded with it all; Gate and Key taps 14 men. MARCH 7 The varsity and freshman swimming teams concluded their season last week with a loss and a win. The varsity lost to Johns Hopkins, 46-22; the freshman team beat the little Johnnies, 47-27, to atone for the defeat. MARCH 13 PAN-HEL PROM The girls try to outdo the Interfraternity tonight in their annual Pan-Hel- lenic Prom, also to be held at the Willard. Because turn about is fair play the femmes drag their Interfraternity dates (sometimes) . Mary Spelman and Eldridge Loeffler lead the grand march, while Joe Haymes makes the music. 28 MARCH 15 Copy everywhere . . . sticky pictures on tables and floors . . . much hair- tearing. The Cherry Tree is soon going to press, we’ll have you know. MARCH 20-21 CUE AND CURTAIN A murder mystery that is no mystery. That was the anomaly presented by Cue and Curtain in its second play of the season, " Ten-Minute Alibi.” Instead of the detective being on the inside track and the audience on the outside, this unique play reversed the situation, and the law didn’t get its man. APRIL 10-15 Just when we need a vacation — here’s Easter! APRIL II The last of a series of highly successful Student Council dances which were inaugurated last fall, is on the calendar for tonight. 29 APRIL 16 Today, Pan-American day, is celebrated by ceremony. Distinguished guests and speakers the Univeresity with a special make it a memorable occasion. M AY 1-2 Cue and Curtain’s third effort of the season, " Is Life Worth Living?” is to be presented on the first two days of May. ’Tis an Irish story. MAY 14-16 This year the Spanish regime has surrendered to the League of Nations. The Fiesta has become international in theme. But aside from themes, if you can’t forget your troubles on the ferris wheel, there’s no hope for you. Dances, shows, booths — ! 30 MAY 20-JUNE 6 FINALS Finals are almost here again. Time to cram. In Law School they start on May 20, elsewhere they don’t begin until May 27. JUNE 7 The annual baccalaureate sermon, that most solemn and awe-inspiring of senior moments, will be held on this night. Plans have not been completed at this writing, but if prophecy is permissible, the ceremony will be held in the most austere and hallowed atmosphere of the Washington Cathedral. EPILOGUE Seniors all. For four years or more we’ve been associated with G Street and Quigley’s, Corcoran Hall and Stockton Hall. We have poignant memories, but let us not dwell in the past. Rather let us look toward the future with that high hope which is so necessary to success in these trying times. 31 DMINISTR ATION In order to become a great institution a university must have for its leaders men of ability, foresight, and vision; men who are not only adequate to the present needs of the school but also able to plan for the future. Viewing the campus in 1936 one sees a vastly different place from The George Washington of only a few years ago. The building projects of the present foretell even greater progress in years to come. Less obvious than the housing development but quite as laudable is the more intangible element of scholastic ad- vancement. During recent years there has been a steady increase in the opportunities for learning . The George Washington University is fortunate in the men and women who preside over its destinies and it is with pleasure that we present their portraits in the following pages. 34 CLOYD HECK MARVIN President JOHN JOY EDSON Until his death on July 15. 1935 , in his ninetieth year, John Joy Edson, Washington banker and civic leader, was one of the University’s oldest living alumni. He was graduated in 1868 with the degree of Bachelor of Laws. Admitted to the District bar in 1869. Mr. Edson for some time engaged in the practice of patent law. In 1879 he organized the Equitable Building Association and served as its president from 1898 until his death. During his long career he was identified with practically all of W ashington s out- standing civic movements. Mr. Edson was for many years an Alumni Trustee of the University. On March 14. 1935, the Board of Trustees gave a luncheon in his honor, marking his completion of 2 9 years of service as a I rustee. Despite his advanced age, Mr. Edson continued active participation in business and civic affairs. WILLIAM JAMES FLATHER William James Flather, Vice-President of the Riggs National Bank and a Trustee of the University since 1910. died February 29, 1936. He had been associated with the Riggs Bank for 59 years, starting in 1 876 at the age of 17 as a runner and rising to the post of Vice-President which he held from 1907 until the time of his death. In a tribute to Mr. Flather, Robert V. Fleming, President of Riggs, said : “Throughout his long career he was recognized as one of the ablest bankers, not only of our own community hut of the Nation, and he always maintained a high standard of banking skill and ethics. All of 11s who have been privileged to be associated with him will remember his many fine qualities and will cherish his memory.” 36 THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES 1935 Avery Delano Andrews, LL.B.

There is a natural tendency for even the most sincere to don rose-colored glasses and deal in vague generalities when confronted by a grad- uating class. In the uncertainty of modern life the college student has come to realize the fallacy of traditional predictions of instant success and the inevitable gratification of one’s ambitions. However it is un- deniably true that the person who has taken an active interest in his studies, and who is able to make practical applications of the knowl- edge he has acquired, is a far better prepared individual than the one who has had fewer opportunities or used them less effectively. Therefore it is our hope and belief that from the class of 1936 there will develop leaders in all fields of adult endeavor, from the law court to the clinic, from the ranks of diplomacy to the builders of bridges, from illustrators to economists. 44 SENIOR COUNCIL Officers Paul L.

EDICAL SCHOOL The George Washington University Medical School was form- ally opened in March, 1825. At the time of its foundation there were only eleven other Medical Schools in actual operation in the United States. The policy of the school has always been to maintain a small outstanding institution of high quality. The entering classes have been reduced with a view to acceptance of only fifty new members by 1938-39. In recent years many advances have been made. Nationally famous men have been added to the faculty. Much new equipment has been provided and more emphasis has been placed on the corre- lation of pre-clinical and clinical studies. The school has long been recognized as a Class A Medical School and numbered many famous names in its halls. In 1833 William Beaumont was awarded the degree of Doctor of Medicine. Men of national and international fame such as Walter Reed, Theo- bald Smith, and Frederick Russell have served on its faculty. 94 EARL B. McKINLEY Dean WALTER A.

With all the social and economical problems of today before you there is greater need for professional leadership than ever before. The process of education is more than the acquiring of knowledge. Of chief importance the truly educated man has acquired that high quality of self-discipline which is so much needed today in order to cope successfully with these many new and difficult problems. The successful making of a physician is the creation of a well disciplined member of society endowed with the specialized knowledge of his profession and leavened with the spirit of tolerance and a sympathetic understanding of human problems. As you enter upon your hospital training you will meet these human problems greatly magnified by injury and suffering. The mere problem of living during these latter days has been difficult for most of our people, but when it is complicated by illness and further economic vicissitudes as a direct result of such illness the physician is called upon for more than an ordinary appreciation of the mental health of his patients and the need for a deeper understanding of the purely human elements in the clinical picture before him. We have spent four short years together. Your Faculty has tried hard to devote itself to your interests and training. We have attempted to impart to you the true fundamental scientific spirit. We have taught you to question all knowledge and to accept nothing as final or conclusive. We have wished you to develop that type of critical judgment v hich should apply henceforth in all of your professional work. We have laid stress upon professional excel- lence and upon honesty and integrity in the character building of the physician. Th rough all of the tests applied your Faculty has found you worthy, and we are now about to place our stamp of approval upon you as we recommend you for the degree of Doctor of Medicine. The future is in your hands. We know that you will reward the efforts of your school through your con- tributions to society. May we wish for you not so much a material reward in your future life, but the satisfactions which only come to those who have given something of themselves to others in the brief span allotted to each of us. Doctors of Medicine of 1936, on behalf of the Faculty 1 congratulate you for the opportunity which lies ahead of each one of you for a useful and important life. Make the most of it and you will have really lived. Earl Baldwin McKinley, M.D., Dean. 97 98 SENIOR CLASS Petrena Arbe Washington, I). C. Medicine , M.D. Interning at Garfield Memorial Hospital, D.

VES i ! S 10 ? CLASS HISTORY The past four years may well be likened to a great play in the making. Such dramas do not often include so many themes, widely diversified yet held together by a common bond. This bond is so strong that we have given up many years of youthful freedom ro accomplish our ideals. The opening lines of the first act were short, perhaps a bit shocking, as they brought us to a stern reality. " Dr. Jenkins will meet the freshman class at one o’clock in the Anatomy laboratory, top floor. Other classes meet to- morrow.” At one o’clock we made our first contact with a man whom we learned to admire and call friend in a very short time. Soon we met Doctors Solintzky, Collins, and Allen. The next scene took us across the hall to the dissecting room. Dr. Collins was heard to say, " Watch their eyes pop out this morning. " Yes, real dissection began that morning. We were fast becoming integral parts of the cast. Each day new was rehearsal. Quizzes in the morn- ing on Histology, Embryology, and Ncuroanatomy; quizzes in the afternoon on Anatomy. We were learning our lines well, but we lacked confidence. Our first chance came when Dr. Jenkins announced oral examinations on the anatomy of the head and neck. February, with final examinations in Anatomy and other subjects, was the next hurdle. From then on the action became so very rapid it was difficult to follow. Sur- prisingly few became lost in the maze of intricacies of the human body, thus spreading a word of praise for those who chose us to play the parts in this great and powerful drama. The scene rapidly changed and we ventured from that haven of inexperienced freshmen to other floors of our playhouse to learn new lines for Act I, Scene II. There were many new lines to learn in Bac- teriology, Biochemistry, Physiology and lo! a glimpse into the third and fourth acts just to stir our interest and keep our spirits up at Medical and Surgical clinics. Remember the jaundiced man? The fellow actors in our drama had by this time become familiar to each of us. And according to precedent the lordly Sophomore class officers advised in no uncertain terms, that the class must be organized. J. Lawn Thompson was elected President and ably acted as our spokesman for Act I. The curtain fell quickly on the first act with orals in Bacteriology (with exemptions) and many more writtens than most of us thought we could ever survive. The second act moved quickly with Physiology presented before laboratory settings, and weird apparatus over which many patient hours were spent. Dr. Choisser’s excellent course in Pathology was a bright spot which we remember well. In Dr. DuVigneaud’s lab, the gag reflex was well demonstrated as we no attempted to swallow innocent looking stomach tubes. Dr. Roth led us through the numerous problems of pharmacology in a well systematized laboratory course. Hall D was an interesting spot, when Dr. Conklin showed us, very successfully too, how little we knew about physical diagnosis and the founders of the art. The honor of acting as President of this class went to Glidden Baldwin in the second act. The freshmen took pity on the hard working Sophs and planned a " terpsichorean evening’ ' at the Shoreham. The third act curtain rose on an entirely new and, we must say, welcome set- ting. Here we saw Dispensary benches and waiting patients. In the examination booths we became ' ' Doctors” and began to learn the true art of medicine. Lec- tures on Medicin e, Surgery, Obstetrics, Gynecology, Dermatology, and other subjects you will recall, kept us very busy indeed taking notes. Dermatology brings to mind Luden’s Cough Drops and Dr. Simpson’s reception for the class at his home. As Spring made its appearance there came confirmation of rumors about four-year comprehensive oral examinations for the Senior Class. Of course it did not apply to us immediately, but we had foresight by this time. During the winter season we had actually made some progress this year toward wearing out the evening clothes, but they would still do for another season with a few notable exceptions. Blaine Harrell, our quiet, likeable President, had more to do than any previous holder of the office, and did it mighty well. The third act drew to a close as many of us sought out small parts to play during the summer months, from Mayo Clinic to " Camp Doctors.” The fourth act was opened and Senior Year begun as our band of actors and actresses (yes, we had four girls left out of seven) gathered for the last time. We now actually felt that we knew a great deal more than any of the poor underclassmen and perhaps we could not help appearing so. Edward Fer- guson was selected as the man to carry the burdens and honors as President of the Class. We were now permitted on the wards and assigned cases to not only carefully take histories and physical examinations, but to carry out those laboratory procedures which we thought were necessary. Dr. Dowling’s able assistance was greatly appreciated by the Senior Class, though at times it was not so evident. Even Dr. Dowling will admit that spring weather, urinalyses, and youth are more or less incompatible substances. And now that rehearsals are over we begin the play itself with Commencement for op ening night and the world for our theater. After ten years of good hard work shall we return and get together once more? mi M Top ton: Classman Hand Rcif, Gold mohn . Harrell. Strond ton: Baldwin, Briguglio, Cooper, Spiriro, Dominick.

During the year it has been the pleasure of the chapter to have prominent members of the faculty to the house to give us the benefits of their opinions on subjects pertinent to the medical profession. Social activities of the fraternity have included a fall pledge dance, a spring formal, and the occasional informal house dances. 119 Front Row: Sicklei Swanton, McNutt. Crittenden, Belk.

I will prescribe regimen for the good of my patients according to my ability and my judgment and never do harm to anyone. To please no one will I prescribe a deadly drug, nor give advice which may cause his death, but I will preserve the purity of my life and art. I will not cut for stone, even for patients in whom the disease is mani- fest; I will leave this operation to be performed by practitioners (specialists in this art) . In every house where I come I will enter only for the good of my patients, keeping myself far from all intentional ill-doing and all seduc- tion, and especially from the pleasures of love with women or with men, be they free or slaves. All that may come to my knowledge in the exercise of my profession or outside of my profession or in daily commerce with men, which ought not to be spread abroad, I will keep secret and will never reveal. If I keep this oath faithfully, may I enjoy my life and practice my art, respected by all men and in all times; but if I swerve from it or violate it, may the reverse be my lot.” 125 126 O C I A L FRATERNITIES At this time when the social fraternity is on trial for its life in the minds of many, we find it possible to say much in its favor. In our university, where the scattered students have little life in common outside the class room, it is the fraternity, more than any- thing else, which binds them together into units of friendship and loyalty, and offers them the advantages of intimate contact with their contemporaries. Leadership and cooperation, so important alike to individual and society, are developed within the fraternity. Its high standards of scholarship and morality are of inestimable value to the school in general as well as to the particular group. The beautiful rituals which embody these ideals are an inspiration which will remain long in the hearts of the members. College students will always gather together in selective groups of some sort, and to those who realize the value of fraternity life, it seems unlikely that a satisfactory substitute will be found for the social fraternity. 128 Top Row: Reeder.

In addition to serving as a reward for the accomplishment of successful work they are an added inspiration to others to strive for greater advancement. They are also a means of bringing together for their mutual betterment students of similar achievement and ambition.

The contacts formed and the interchange of ideas make it an invaluable adjunct to the life of the college student who plans to build his life work upon the foundation of his college studies. The professional fraternity serves the purpose of providing a connecting link between the academic undergraduate world and the mature business world into which the student is thrust upon his graduation from college. The following pages include professional fraternities repre- senting the varied fields of law, education, engineering, commerce, foreign service, pharmacy, chemistry, home economics, and geology. 194 Front Ron : Dean, Roberts.

We have become so accustomed to the different organizations that govern much of our college life that it is difficult to imagine a school without them. Probably one of the first groups to organize was the Debating Society where young orators met to match their wits and words. Shortly afterward Glee Clubs were formed by the musically inclined, followed by Athletic Associations, and all the varied organizations dealing with matters of scientific and religious import, and with the government of both individual classes and the student body at large. All of these have their value, and there can be no doubt but that the man or woman who has participated in this phase of col- lege life has received training which will be in many ways beneficial in years to come. 206 THE GENERAL ALUMNI ASSOCIATION It is the earnest hope nf the alumni officers that members of the Clas of 1936 will maintain a close and lasting association with their Alma Mater, in- dividually and through the alumni organizations. A continuing interest in the University should he a part of the heritage of every graduate, and the alumni organizations are the channels which give direction and expression to this interest. Regional Ai t mm Clubs in cities throughout the country keep alive the spirit of th e University among alumni who are remote. If you are leaving Wash- ington to take up your work elsewhere, you should make contact with the George Washington Univer- sity alumni club in the city where you locate. Professional Groups — Law, Medicine, Library Science — foster friendship, coopera- tion and professional progress among graduates whose life work is in the same field. The General Alumni Association coordinates these various forces and promotes alumni objectives which are common to the University as a whole and to its entire alumni body. This year the Association, in cooperation with the University, has entered upon a program for broadening the scope of alumni work in such a way as to make the efforts of the alumni more interesting to themselves and more effective from the point of view of the University. Among other things this program contemplates the organization of the alumni upon a more extensive and a more closely-knit basis, the publication of an alumni magazine to be sent twice a year to all alumni of the University, and the printing of an alumni directory. Your interest and cooperation are vital to this program.

Later in the year a delegate was elected from the Senior Council, thus bringing the total membership to twenty-five. During the year the Council sponsored five dances, a successful homecoming rally, and donated a twenty-five-dollar prize to the organization selling the most Cherry Trees. The Council also arranged for murals for the Student Club Room, a radio for the men’s lounge, and an elaborate Student Council Service, consisting of an activities warehouse and a social calendar system. 209 Top ton: Adams.

Under the sponsorship of the Student Council, the Fiesta, this year, became a per- manent extra-curricular activity, a constitution being granted it by the Council. On May i+, 15, and 16, this year, the Fiesta turned the old Art School Yard into a merry thoroughfare of side shows, booths, and barkers. In the gym were presented revues, the Follies, a brilliant pageant, and the student-written, acted, and directed musical comedy. The crowning of the Fiesta King and Queen, popularity rulers of the campus, opened the festivities on the first night. 213 Top row : Scott, Nelson. Embrey. Warfield. Hughes.

The calendar for the year included a Philippine night, British Empire night, and Pan-American night, an annual reception for new foreign students, and parties cele- brating Hallowe’en, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day. A gala International night pro- gram each semester featured a " parade of nations” with members in native costumes. Following the formal opening of International House in February, 1936, Friday after- noon teas became a weekly function. The fifth annual ball at the Mayflower Hotel and a picnic in May concluded the season’s activities. 216 Front row: Dtgal. Dr. West, Aguilar, Reves. Back row: Marte. Malasartc. Bonoan.

Meetings are held the first and third Thursdays of each month during the school year in Columbian House, and are conducted by a reader elected from the membership. The Organization engaged in various activities during the year. A free lecture on Christian Science was given by Charles V. Winn, C.S.B., of Pasadena, California, a member of the Board of Lectureship of the Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts. A reception for all students who at registration indicated Christian Science as their religious preference was held at Columbian House. The speaker for the occasion was Dr. William H. Barnhard, C.S., graduate and former faculty member of George Washington University. The Organization maintains in the University Library authorized books and periodicals on Christian Science, including the inter- national daily newspaper, The Christian Science Monitor. Through the study of the Bible and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, this Or- ganization enables many students to carry out more successfully the purpose of education — training for citizenship, impartation of culture, and development of character. 222 THE RIDING CLUB Helen Evans YV.

COLONIAL CAMPUS CLUB Mary Ferry President Eunice Swick Secretary Mary Lois Rice .... Vice-President Muriel Lewis Treasurer Helen H. Lawrence, Faculty Advisor The purpose of the Colonial Campus Club is to create a greater spirit of friendship among the women students who are not affiliated with any social Greek-letter organi- zation. It gives them an excellent opportunity to participate in campus activities such as debating and intramurals. In addition to having bi-monthly meetings, alternating business and social, the club sponsors other functions as theater parties, roller-skating parties, and hiking. Members Frances Allison . . .

In addition to this book, student publications include The Hatchet , the weekly newspaper, and the Student Handbook, which appears at registration time in the fall, and is designed to supply information concerning the University to entering students, and to serve as a directory to the upper classmen. The Cue and Curtain Club and the Little Players have afforded an outlet for student dramatic ability throughout the year. Cue and Curtain has produced two plays, " She Loves Me Not” and " Ten Minute Alibi” to date, and the student body is now awaiting its third production. The debating season at George Washington was inaugurated in November when a traveling team from Cambridge University met a Colonial team here. This was followed, during the second semester, by hard schedules of intercollegiate debates for men’s and women’s teams, including one with a Puerto Rican team. 228 John R.

" The Colum- biad,” as it was called, was dedicated to President James C. Welling. It was a volume of only sixty-six pages. The cartoons and old advertisements seem funny to the modern student. For instance, there is a section entitled " Our Fraterni- ties.” Below are drawings of two skeletons dancing, a man’s and a woman’s. Beneath are the words, " Them two! Them two!” Phi Kappa Psi and Pi Beta Phi were the only Greek letter organizations on the campus at this time. Improving and growing steadily, the annual by 1905 had become a nicely bound volume of 368 pages, " The Mall.” Three years later the yearbook was graced with its present name, " The Cherry Tree.” This book was dedicated to Dean William Allen Wilbur. Yearbook editors, from William Huntington Wilson, ’91, to Helen Bunten, ’36, together with their staffs, have constantly toiled to preserve this yearly chronicle of our university’s history. 232 THE CHERRY TREE JUNIOR STAFF Top Row: Leffers, M.

One of the oldest and s trongest activities on the George Washington campus is the University Hatchet. This paper, which appears weekly during the school year and twice during summer sessions, has a present circulation of a little less than 7,000, and a history dating back to November 4, 1904. The reputation of the Hatchet is not only campus-wide, but the publication has made its mark in intercollegiate circles. As the results of this year’s Na- tional Scholastic Newspaper Conference at the University of Minnesota have not yet been received, the All-American rating attained by the Hatchet in 1935 still stands. However, the Hatchet was awarded third rank in news, sports, and editorial page at the Middle Atlantic Intercollegiate Newspaper Convention at Temple University last November. In addition, the Hatchet last fall sponsored the third annual High School Press Convention for secondary schools of this locality, at which such eminent journalists as Sir Wilmot Lewis, London Times, spoke to the delegates. It also backed Volume Four of the Student Hand Book last September. 236 THE UNIVERSITY HATCHET JUNIOR STAFF Top Rob: Speer, McNcese. Mace. Dougherty. Second Rob: Goodman, Clark. Rich, Elian.

In this debate William Goodykoontz and Dick Sprice upheld the affirmative of the question, " Resolved, That the Legislative Should Have the Power by a Two-Thirds Vote to Override Decisions of the Supreme Court Declaring Acts of Congress Unconstitutional.” This question is the only one the men’s debate team has used. William Rochelle, Edwin Cage, and John Southmayd upheld the affirmative of the question, while Edmund Browning and Tom Larkin supported the negative. The men’s debate team met four of the outstanding teams in the coun- try. They debated the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton University, Porto Rico University, and William and Mary College. WOMEN ' S DEBATE A Model Senate Meet at the New Jersey College for Women, attended by Jennie Garner and Reba Edelman, and a radio debate against Swarth- more College in Philadelphia, inaugurated a most successful forensic sea- son. Jennie Garner and Muriel Merelman spent the debate year in a dis- cussion of the very interesting and vital question of the New Deal. They upheld the affirmative of " Resolved, That the New Deal Deserves the Sup- port of the Electorate in 1936,” when debating Swarthmore, and the nega- tive in their debate with William and Mary College. Reba Edelman and Phoebe Jane Beall had the privilege of debating two old friends, Pittsburgh University and Trinity College. They supported the affirmative contention of " Resolved, That the Legislative Should Have the Power by a Two- Thirds Vote to Override Decisions of the Supreme Court Declaring Acts of Congress Unconstitutional,” in their argument with Pitt and Allegheny, but defended the negative against Trinity. 242 O C I E T T Social activities have always played, and will no doubt continue to play, an important part in the school life of George Washington University. During the school term there occur five large dances. These are the Homecoming Ball, the Interfraternity Pledge Prom, the En- gineers’ Ba ll, the Interfraternity Prom, and the Pan-Hellenic Prom. These are considered the most important social functions of the year. The majority of students attend these affairs and it is there that they have the opportunity to become better acquainted with their fellow classmates, and to meet each other in a different atmosphere, apart from the usual every-day surroundings of school. The students are also given an opportunity to meet the faculty in an informal way. Here they have a chance to chat casually with a professor with no thought of school work involved. All of these dances have become annual affairs and are looked forward to each year with great anticipation and pleasure. 244 Harry Ames Homecoming Ball HOMECOMING BALL To the Alumni: Climaxing a three-day celebration, the undergraduates attempted to make the annual Homecoming Ball on Saturday, November 2, one of the outstanding social events of the year. The main ballroom of the Willard Hotel presented a gay appearance with appropriate decorations for the season of the year. At 10:30 the grand march was held, led by members of Steel Gauntlet, the Junior honorary fraternity, followed by members of the football teams of Rice Institute and George Washington University. During intermission, the cup, awarded to the fraternity with the best decorated house, was presented to Sigma Chi. Immediately following the presentation, Omicron Delta Kappa, honorary activities fraternity for men, held their annual tapping service. Dancing again continued to the strains of Lee Fields and his smooth music until 1:00. Included in the pieces was a medley of George Washing- ton songs. Harry Ames, chairman of the committee, was responsible for this most successful ball. 245 Bob Williams INTERFRATERNITY PLEDGE PROM The pledges’ night of the year! Acting as hosts, the neophytes enter- tained their future brothers at the annual Interfraternity Pledge Prom, held in the modernistic ballroom of the Kennedy Warren on January 11. At eleven o’clock the grand march began, led by Carol Fries, escorted by Bob Williams, president of the Council, and Jeanne Krieger, escorted by Tom Dobson, social chairman. After the marchers had executed several turns around the ballroom, dancing continued again to the music of " The Townsmen ' the popular fourteen-piece unit from Baltimore, until one. 246 ENGINEERS ' BALL Edward Thomas The large modernistic ballroom of the Kennedy Warren Hotel was the scene of the fifth annual Engineers’ Ball held on Friday evening, February 14, from ten until one. At midnight the grand march began, led by Mary Spelman, president of the Panhellenic Council, accompanied by George O. Sanford, chief engineer of the Bureau of Reclamation. Music for dancing was furnished by Lee Fields and his popular Chevy Chase Lake Orchestra. Among the invited guests were members of the faculty of the School of Engineering and heads of the various other schools. 247 r r INTERFRATERNITY PROM John Moi.yneaux Dancing to the strains of Glen Gray ' s world-famous band, members of the various Greek fraternities on the campus and their dates gathered in the main ballroom of the Willard Hotel on Friday night, March 6, to celebrate their annual Prom. At midnight the grand march was started, led by Newell Lusby, president of Interfraternity Council, escorting Jean Ackerman, and John Molyneaux, socia l chairman, with Helen Dettweiler. During intermission, which immediately followed the march, Gate and Key held its " ' tapping” service for fourteen men. Following the service dancing resumed until 2 a.m. 248 PANHELLENIC PROM Eldridge Loeffler Climaxing the social season at an earlier date than in former years, the members of the Greek sororities entertained their escorts at their Annual Panhellenic Prom, held in the main ballroom of the Willard Motel on the evening of Friday, March 13. Many of the sorority women took this opportunity to bring forth the newest spring fashions in evening dresses. Pastel shades in prints or plain colors were the dominating keynote of the gowns. Eldridge Loeffler, escorted by John Culler, and Mary Spelman Atkins, escorted b Robert Atkins, led the grand march. Immediately following the march, Delphi, hon- orary intersorority society, held their annual “tapping” services and inducted eight girls into the organization. Panhellenic cups for intramural competition in volleyball, ping-pong, and bridge were presented to the w inning sororities after the services. Joe Haymes and his well-known New York orchestra furnished the music for this very successful dance. 249 Je ATU R E S In this, our Features Section, we attempt to give special recognition to those who seem best to typify the student body of George Wash- ington University. We present the results of our beauty contest as judged by two prominent artists, and the selections of our faculty committee for the high honor of being named to the Cherry Tree Hall of Fame. These two features have become an established tradition of the yearbook and are eagerly awaited by the students each year. We have added as a special feature of this issue a group of photo- graphs of the University buildings to supplement the drawings of campus views scattered through the book. We hope that when you see them in later years they will bring a host of pleasant memories of your days at George Washington. 250 OYe (Present Che (5 eauty Contest Through the kind cooperation of two prominent artists, Miss Neysa McMein and Mr. John La Gatta, we give you the most beautiful girls at George Washington University. The first is the choice of both judges for first place and the second two are the selections of Miss McMein and Mr. La Gatta for second place, in that order. 2SI 252 GERALDINE DILLMAN ★ 253 KATHRYN DENGLER ★ 254 Of E ?RESE H E 3i ALL OF NJ T AME A faculty committee chosen by the Board of Editors has selected the following members of the 1936 graduating class as outstanding in activities, scholarship, and general worthi- ness of recognition. The committee was composed of Mrs. Barrows, Dean Doyle, Dean Johnstone, Dean Kayser, and Mr. Farrington. 2SS VIRGINIA POPE HARRY AMES 256 HARRY DEMING 257 I MARJORIF SEHORN 258 259 T H L E T I C S Basketball stole the show from football during the athletic year of 1935-1936. Though the footballers had a fair record, the basket- ball team stood out by winning sixteen games and losing onlv three, resulting in an invitation to the Olympic sectional tryouts. The football team, under Coach Pixlee, lost three disappointing games to Rice, Alabama, and Wake Forest. However, victories over Emory-Henry, Catawba, Tulsa, West Virginia, North Dakota, and Davis-Elkins partly assuaged these losses. The baseball team won six games and lost six. Vinnie De An- gelis, hurler, stands out at present as the star of next year’s club. In the minor sports, Ted Pierce led the tennis team to seven wins and one loss; to date the rifle team has lost two matches, and unofficially has won one, with four matches still remaining; the swim- ming team so far has won only two matches, with three remaining. On the whole the past year can be summarized as being mediocre for athletics, except for the startling performance of the best basket- ball team in history to represent George Washington. 242 JAMES EBENEZER PIXLEE Director of Athlet;cs THE COACHING STAFF Top row: Leonard Walsh, Max Farrington, Roland Logan, Jean Sexton. Second row: William Myers, Jack Espey, Edgar Morris. William Reinhart. 263 Robert Pfahler Jack Brown THE MANAGERIAL SYSTEM For the past five years the same managerial system for intercollegiate sports has been used with much success. Founded on the merit system, it allows no opportunity for the undeserving to receive managerial positions without working for them. Selections are made by the coach in charge, the Senior manager, and the assistant director of athletics. The Senior manager is the head of the system, directing all managers. He rules the managers of all sports and makes recommendations each year for promotions. Under him are the Junior managers of basketball, football, baseball, and minor sports. Next in line are the Sophomore managers, who work in one or more sports and compete for the jobs of managers of Freshman football, basketball, minor sports, and assistant varsity managers. A Freshman can serve only in the capacity of assistant to a Sophomore or Junior manager. Upon the ability of the manager depends the comfort and disposition of the varsity squads on their out-of-town trips, and they must also keep the equipment in shape, which is a job in itself. The basketball manager must also be the scorekeeper at games, and the assistant manager keeps the time. Members of this year’s staff were John Swayze, Senior manager; Jack Brown, Junior manager of football; Robert Pfahler, Junior manager of basketball; Clark Swayze, Junior manager of baseball and assistant man- ager of football; and John Thiemeyer, Sophomore manager of basketball. 264 An eleven-letter word meaning optimism must be cheerleader, for during the football year no one kept up hope longer when the going was rough than the megaphone boys. When Rice was leading George Washington, 40-0, and a Rice back was preparing to try for the extra point, one cheerleader burst out, " Come on, make it loud — Block That Kick!” Sammy Walker ably led his group of cheerleaders during the year, aiding in the organization of the cheering sections at the games and leading the card bearers in the stands between the halves. Spirit was not lacking by the boys in white, for they were always pepping up the games, despite the weather or any other discouraging factor. Examples of this are the Catawba, Tulsa, and North Dakota games, in which the field resembled one big mudhole; but the boys were out there exhorting the stands to cheer for the Buff and Blue, though they were standing in what seemed to be puddles of water. After the grid season, the activities of the cheerleaders died down to only Sammy Walker, who exclusively took charge of what little cheering went on during the basketball season. Though he didn’t get very much response, Sammy made enough noise himself to take care of the spectators who didn’t care to cheer. This year’s staff was composed of Samuel Walker, leader; Bernard Holden, Hy Orling, Burton Mincosky, Marvin Footer, Stanley Crane, and Robert Walker. CHEERLEADERS Front Row: Footer. Orling, S.

W. 6; Wake Forest 7 G. W. 0; Rice 41 G. W. 53; Davis-Elkins 7 G. W. 3; Tulsa 0 G. W. 13; North Dakota 0 Though the grid season of 1935 produced nothing in the way of out- standing victories, this year marks the beginning of a new era in George Washington football history. The actual record showed that the Colonials won six games and lost three, but what isn’t shown is the totally unexpected turn and its results in the coaching system heretofore used. Formerly the George Washington system was a combination of the Warner system and the short punt with conservative passing. However, in the middle of the season, against Wake Forest, a spread formation was tried for perhaps the first time in history, and the result was so encouraging that this play was used with variations throughout the rest of the season. In the games before the spread formation was born, the most notable victory was that over West Virginia, 15-7. Ben Plotnicki and Herb Reeves intercepted passes to account for the Colonial touchdowns, while Sid Kolker blocked a kick for the safety. Wake Forest scored an upset by defeating George Washington, 7-6, in the only game away from home. Rice Institute overwhelmed the varsity shortly afterwards, 41-0, though the Buff scored twice as many first downs as the Texans. The only other large margin scored against the Colonials was the 39-0 victory of Alabama. George Washington defeated Emory-Henry, Catawba, West Virginia, Tulsa, North Dakota, and Davis-Elkins. Throughout the season the stellar play of Tuffy Leemans stood out, and he was rewarded with places on All-District and All-Eastern teams, and All-American honorable mention. 267 TUFFY LEEMANS RECEIVING THE FIRST PASS IN HIS PROLIFIC CAREER. TUFFY TOOK THIS ONE FROM JENKINS FOR A 10-YARD GAIN. TUFFY RECEIVES KICK AND, AS USUAL. AVOIDS THE TWO MEN NEAR HIM. THIS ONE IS IN THE ALABAMA GAME. 268 CARDER, WEST VIRGINIA, PLUNGES TO A GOAL FROM THE ONE-FOOT LINE TO SCORE THE MOUNTAINEERS’ ONLY TOUCHDOWN. COCKRANE, ALABAMA, GETS AWAY FOR 30 YARDS. HANKEN, TO HIS RIGHT. FINALLY GETS HIM. 269 ALPHONSE LEEMANS Undoubtedly the most brilliant back in George Washington football history. Was a clever broken-field runner, accu- rate passer, and sure punter. All-Eastern for second time. HARRY DEMING Captain Harry did nobly in supporting his tackle position. He was a bulwark on defense and was second to no one in opening holes. Despite a broken nose and minor injuries, he played every game, but for two minutes. RAY HANKEN Reformed halfback who developed into a better than average end. Though handi- capped by lack of height, Ray did some brilliant playing, especially in the North Dakota game. We should hear much of him next year. HOLLIS HARRISON Eased the coach’s mind no little in regard to a reserve guard or tackle. Did yeoman work in both positions, though he played more at guard. Also back next year, and should help build a powerful line. 270 JOSEPH KAUFMAN Last year ' s Freshman flash who didn ' t live up to expectations. However, once or twice he showed some nice running, but not so sure as safety man. Is coming along, though, and may be the man to replace Leemans. SIDNEY KOLKER Sid turned in a splendid performance at guard, and, though he was not in the headlines, was one of the most valuable men on the team. Blocked a kick in the West Virginia game. It will be very hard to replace Sid. DALE PRATHER Played nearly every minute of season and turned in fair job. Never reached peak, but should in another year. He is 215 pounds, which places him at an advan- tage on the line. 1936 should see his zenith. KENNETH RATHJEN One of best centers developed here. Made the middle of the line almost invulnera- ble. Intelligent and alert, he participated in nearly every play on the line. Turned in a fine job for three years. 271 HENRY VONDER BRUEGGE Little-heard-of Senior end who did good work in the time he played. Never reached potentialities, but he never gave up. Hank turned in a splendid perform- ance against North Dakota in last game of career. PHILLIP CANNON Next year’s prospect. Should fill one of holes on line. Didn’t see much action this year, but is expected to help the 1936 team very much. Phil is a little light for guard, but makes it up in fight. LEON MORRIS Although only a Sophomore, Leon is re- garded as a potentially great end by Coach Reinhart. Not an aggressive type ball player, he is one of the smartest men on the squad. His ability to diagnose plays makes him invaluable. BENEDICT PLOTNICKI Handicapped by being a reserve back for Leemans, Benny was forced into a lesser role in Colonial gridiron history. He was, however, a consistent performer, and played stellar ball when called upon. 272 ARMONDO SALTURELLI Armondo is another of Coach Reinhart’s Sophomore hopefuls. A center, he will be called upon to take a major part in the G. W. forward wall. Salturelli was hampered by injuries last year. HOWARD TIHILA " Nig” is a fullback, and will be out next year to wrest that position from Kavalier. He did not see much action last year, but will be a handy man to have around when the bands begin to play next year. ORVILLE WRIGHT Wright played a great game at end last year until he was injured, and though not a large man, he capably held down the wing position. He will be back next year to resume his regular post. PETE YURWITZ Yurwitz was called upon to assume a dif- ficult task when he was sent in at end last year to replace Wright. However, he made up in spirit what he lacked in ex- perience, and he will carry a large part of the G. W. end play next year. 273 LOUIS CARROLL Carroll, who was handicapped last year by a leg injury, is a blocking back upon whom Coach Reinhart is depending heav- ily. Next year should find him bearing a major share of the Colonial offense. TED COTTINGHAM Ted played a great game at guard last year, his first of competition. His ag- gressive play makes him a great prospect to strengthen G. W.’s forward wall for the next two years. His greatest quality is consistency. VINCENT L)E ANGELIS ' Winnie” has the makings of a great back, particularly distinguishing himself last year in the West Virginia game. He is fast and a smooth ball handler, but did not see much service because of inexperi- ence. GEORGE JENKINS George will be the nucleus around which the Colonial coaching staff will have to build the entire backfield next season. A Senior, he will be depended upon to du- plicate his great performances of last year. 274 FRANK KAVALIER Captain-elect of the football team, Frank will have to decide which position he really wants to play. Last year saw him alternate at fullback, quarter, guard, and end. He will probably see much action at fullback. BRUCE MAHAN Bruce will fall heir to the running back post vacated by Leemans, and in his few appearances last year, Bruce gave evi- dence of being highly capable of step- ping in. He is a fast, shifty ball carrier. HERBERT REEVES Junior back who made good in a big way last year. Hard-driving, elusive run- ner, Herb surprised even his best friends. Next year Herb will be counted on by Reinhart to be the number one back. GEORGE TRINASTICH Another back who developed nearly over- night. George showed a nice style of ball, and gave hope last year of going into a regular position before another year. A Junior, George should reach his peak in 1936 . 275 $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ RESULTS BASKETBALL 50; Shenandoah 16 27; Ohio State 35 46; Richmond 33 51; Oglethorpe 10 38; Wake Forest 19 44; Elon 21 43; Richmond 25 31; Villanova 23 43; Emory-Henry 27 45; Ohio State 23 44; Geneva 33 40; Davis-Elkins 28 42; Randolph-Macon 15 70; Davis-Elkins 52 42; West Virginia 28 33; Westminster 25 27; St. Johns 29 31; Long Island 43 49; Wake Forest 18 BASEBALL 3; Delaware 8 1; Long Island 0 5; Washington College 6 9; West Virginia 8 16; Johns Hopkins . 0 4; Davis-Elkins 3 9; Hampden-Sydney 7 5; Wake Forest 14 2; Marines 9 1; Wake Forest 5 0; Elon 7 10; Marines 9 276 RESULTS G.

The all-intramural baseball team consisted of: Sheiry, Engineers, and Gold- faden, Pre-Med, pitchers; Harold Lind, Junior College, catcher; Vernon Steh- man, Pre-Med, first base; Bill Wetzel, Engineers, second; George Jenkins, Junior College, third; and Ross Marshall, Junior College, shortstop; Henry Vonder Bruegge, Engineers, right field; Kenneth Rathjen, Junior College, cen- ter field; and Ben Plotnicki, Junior College, left field. Robert Mainfort was selected best manager. Because of inclement weather and other unavoidable conditions, intramural spring tennis, horseshoes, golf, and table tennis tournaments were called off. FRESHMAN FOOTBALL Playing a schedule for the first time in several years, the Freshman football team gave evidence of great potentialities in its two contests. The Cubs defeated the Penn’s Grove Y. M. C. A. of New Jersey, 28-0, and were held to a tie by the Western Maryland frosh, 6-6. In Vic Sampson, Bob Faris, and Louie Stamus, Coach Jean Sexton had triple-threat backs. The line produced three more stalwarts to gladden the hearts of Colonial cohorts. Ted Czech, guard; Stan Gerbovaz, tackle; and Floyd Berry, end, were outstanding in the two encounters. It is not improbable that these youngsters and others of the unsung Fresh- man squad will assume important posts in the Colonial grid machine. FRESHMAN BASKETBALL Enjoying its most successful season since it won the Amateur Athletic Union championship two years ago, the Freshman basketball team won 17 games and lost two, both to the Rinaldi Tailor’s team. The Little Colonials defeated every high school in the District, as well as most of the others in this vicinity, including Washington and Lee, Friends, and Devitt Prep. Bob Faris was the high scorer of the Freshmen, totaling 176 points, followed by Sid Silkowitz with 154. Both of these boys are likely prospects for the var- sity in a year or two. Bruce Borum, Quinn Collins, and Joe Brennan, a local product from Western High School, also show promise. 278 Bob Farris, freshman star forward, who led the team to a successful season. He led the scoring, and it was his work that greatly helped the Frosh win the A. A. U. tournament. Ted Pierce, tennis captain, is shown executing a difficult forehand drive. Ted won ten straight matches before being defeated in the Johns Hopkins match. 279 BASKETBALL Stated: George Freilicher. Ben Goldfaden.

WOMEN ' S ATHELTIC ASSOCIATION The guiding body of all sports and clubs connected with women ' s athletics in the university is the Women’s Athletic Association. This year the executive board of the association, which is composed of the officers, class representatives, sports managers, the intramural manager, and the llatchet representative, had the following members: President, Ruth Critchfield; Vice-President, Christine Herrmann; Secretary, Margaret Graves; Corresponding Secretary, Mary Cline; Treasurer, Frances Ridgwav; Publicity, Janice Hale; Social Chairman, Eldridge Loeffler; Managers: Margaret Graves, Caroline McMillen, Mellie Hatch, Jerry Massey, Maxine Farley, Janice Loeb, Eldridge Loeftier, Kitty Black, Bertha Lockhart, Eleanor Livingston, Marianna Bortner, Ethel Nelson, and Cecilia Couch. Janet Feiker represented the newly-formed Alumnae Club. The year’s activities of the W. A. A. included individual tournaments in tennis, swimming, archery, and golf; intramural tournaments, and interclass tournaments in hockey, soccer, tennis, swimming, basketball, baseball, volleyball, and ritte. Each year the Association sponsors a freshman party and sports days with nearby colleges. 28S MANAGERS Jerry Massey Archery Ethel Nelson Volley Theda Hagen ah Soccer Katherine Black Basketball Jane Ficklin Rifle Margaret Graves Hockey 286 SOCCER L ndcr the able direction of Miss Helen Lawrence, coach, and Caroline McMillen, manager, the soccer season was a tremendous success this fall. Those chosen as class managers were Louise Clark, Ruth Yanovsky, Louise Kramer, and Jane Saegmuller. The Interclass Tournament ended in a tie this year for the class teams. In the annual sports meet w ith Hood, Goucher, and George Washington, the G. W. soccer team was very successful. Mem- bers of the teams chosen for the honorary varsity this season were: Mary Cline, Elizabeth Dungan, Eleanor Farr, Mary Ferry, Theda Hagenah, Judy Knapp, Mary Jane Livingston, Janice Loch, Audrey McCuen, Caroline McMillen, Sidney Miles, and Mary Jane Sutherland. HOCKEY Living up to its reputation as the most popular women’s fall sport at G. W., hockey again brought out the most recruits. The teams in this sport finished up their season brilliantly in the Intercolegiate Fall Sport Meet. The teams were well guided by Miss Margaret Lea, coach, and Mar- garet Graves, manager. The class teams were under the leadership of Jane Lachner, Frances Ridgway and Margaret Taylor. The senior-sophomore class team was triumphant in the fall sports week program. Eleven out- standing women were honored by being picked on the honorary varsity team, which was defeated by the alumnae team, 2-1. BASKETBALL When the winter sports season began this year, Miss Helen Lawrence, coach, and Kitty Black, manager, directed the practices in basketball four times a week in the men’s gymnasium.
