ft i Vi Edited by ETHEL M. NELSON Editor D. BRUCE KERR Business Manager PUBLISHED ANNUALLY BY THE STUDENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY VOLUME FORTY The George Washington University Washington, D. C. After the successful introduction of a distinctly new type of college an- nual last year, the 1937 CHERRY TREE carries on the popular innova- tions established then and adds sev- eral others. Convenient size and moderate cost have not meant a nar- rower scope, for our aim has been to portray vividly within these page.s every phase of student life and ac- tivity in our University. It is our hope that in future years when thumbing through its pages, students everywhere may be carried back in their thoughts to the scenes of their college experiences, living over again the happy days spent at George Washington. Mommemorating ten years of one man ' s service and leadership in the University, we dedicate the 1937 volume of The Cherry Tree to Dr. Cloyd Heck Marvin, President of the University and Chairman of the Gradu- ate Council. Under his able guidance, the University has forged ahead in every field, acquiring not only new buildings and material increases, but also new aca- demic standards and higher entrance requirements.

But in remembering the great things which President Marvin has accom- plished for our University, we should not forget the Board of Trustees, Officers of the Administration, heads of colleges, schools and divisions, and the teaching staff, whose loyal cooperation has aided greatly in making and keeping George Washington a great institution.

A Department of Architecture was created as a part of the University in 1892, and a School of Fine Arts in 1894. In the reorganization of the Universit) in 1928 a Division of Fine Arts was created. The Department of Architecture is registered In the Division of Professional Licensure of the University of the State of New York, the District of Columbia Board of Examiners and Registrars of Archtects, and the American Academy in Rome, and cooperates with the Beaux Arts Institute of Design. DIVISION OF LIBRARY SCIENCE Alfred Francis William Schmidt, A.M. Ernes 1 Kleisch Adei aide M asse Fhe Division of Library Science was organized in 1927 as a result of the de- velopment of the courses offered in the Department of Library Science in Co- lumbian College. It has as its objective the training of library assistants for service in public, college, high school, special, and government libraries. Care- ful consideration is given to the aptitude and personal qualifications for libran work of all applicants. Alfred F. W. Schmidt Director, Division of Library Science Page 2 4 IN MEMORIAM DR. CHARLES E. HILL Professor of Political Science Until his death on May 10, 1936, Dr. Charles E. Hill, Professor of Political Science at the University, was recognized both here and abroad as an outstand- ing authority on international law, having often been quoted at the World Court on such matters as international regulation of narrow bodies of water. In addition to the services he rendered the University during his teaching career which began here in 1916, Dr. Hill was the author of several well-known books, served as a special expert for the U. S. Tariff Commission for three years, and was adviser for the House Committee on the revision of laws. Page 25 S E N I C O U N 1 O R C I L OFFICERS Alford H eckei President Omer Hoebreckx . .

The college degree should mean something more to its bearer than mere evidence of having completed a certain number of semester hours or a certain amount of required work. A broader outlook, a more mature mind, and a better and more thoroughly developed sense of values should all be mirrored in the diploma of one who has gained a college education in the true sense of the word. Be not fearful of the future, but strive to put your knowledge into use, so that the class of 1937 will make its mark in the world by leading in all fields of adult endeavor, by making the most of every opportunity, and by making George Washington University proud to have each of its mem- bers as an alumnus.

The University Hospital and Dispensary were established in 1898 and made a part of the organization of the School. The School is a member of the Association of American Medical Colleges and is one of the medical colleges which has been desig- nated continuously as class " A” by the American Medical Associa- tion. The degrees of the School of Medicine are recognized by all State examining boards. Many advances have been made in recent years, including addi- tion of nationally famous men to the faculty, and addition of much new equipment.

Page 87 IN MEMORIAM JOHN GILBERT OSTERMAN 1910-1937 MEDICINE: CLASS OF 1939 Page 88 TO THE CLASS OF 1937 SCHOOL OF MEDICINE THE GEORGE WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY Ff.u.o v Students: Each year when 1 address the graduating class on this page it is with a mingled sense of sorrow and joy — sorrow because you are leaving us to go out into the larger world of the profession and we will miss you in our halls, and joy in that you have achieved your ambition in receiving your medical degree and initiation into our great fraternity. 1 know that this has brought great happiness to you, and so it is with joy that we of the Faculty share this happiness with you. The purpose of this final message to you in The Cherry 1 ree I have always conceived as an opportunity to leave one or more worthwhile thoughts with you. I feel a peculiar sense of responsibility this year with your class, for somehow we have had unusually intimate ties since the early days of your selection as medical students. I feel an additional sense of deep regret that I s ill not be present personally to present you for your diplomas at the graduating exercises, but from my little Island in the China Sea ten thousand miles away I shall be thinking of you and wishing for each of you a glorious success in your chosen work. There are two thoughts which have recenth been running through my mind which I would like to leave with you men and women of the Class of 1937. You know that your Faculty has never preached to you — we have always treated you as adults and have expected of you an adult level of integrity and responsibility. Your class has been splendid in your reception of these relationships. My first thought is this: Y)u have now acquired the fundamental implements of the physician. The knowledge you have received and acquired has been chartered from the unknown by able investigators in vour profession. Does this not suggest to you a personal responsibility to make at least one worthy contribution during your career to the great treasure of medical knowledge? I leave this thought with you as a challenge. The second idea which I would like to leave with you concerns your future interest in scholarly pursuits outside vour profession. We hope each one of you will become interested in some worthwhile scholarly interest that will lend an increasing degree of culture to your personalities as gentlemen and women. We need more of this sense of appreciation of the good things our modern world offers in literature, art, and other fields in the medical profession. It is easy to acquire a superficial veneer, but to become “constitutionally infected” with real culture requires effort on your part and you must increasingly develop “receptors” or “acceptors” for this material. And so, in giving you our farewell and our good wishes for brilliant futures ahead, 1 may sum up these two thoughts in a few words, namely, “Contribute something — determine to leave a real mark — and above all be truly thoughtful about something really worthwhile.” Your Faculty salutes you!

HISTORY, CLASS OF 1937 Four years of medical school, in retrospect, reveal some major changes in the lives of most of the class of 1937. Little did we realize, when selecting a career in medicine, just what the future held for us. In reviewing the stren- uous years of our medical preparation, we cannot help but recall many inter- esting hours, some amusing, some enlightening, some filled with conflicts, and some spent within the confines of our inner selves. As we prepare to leave our Alma Mater, it might he of interest to record some of the events during our metamorphosis from Freshmen to Medicos. Early in 1933, eight) -five of us were selected from approximately a thousand aspirants to follow in the footsteps of Hippocrates. Late September came and we were launched into intensive training which left little time except for fundamentals. Our first greeting came in general assembly when words of welcome were spoken by Dean McKinley. President Marvin then warned us against withdrawing from the world during our preparatory period, and urged us to read not less than one novel a week and to wear out at least one dress suit during our four years in school. These suggestions were well in- tended. but we soon learned that the capacities of most of us made the follow- ing of them incompatible with the mastery of the basic medical sciences. Page 90 JOHN NORCROSS JOHN MADDEN MYRTLE SIEGFRIED President Vice-President Secretary-Treasurer HISTORY, CLASS OF 1937 (CONTINUED) For eight hours during the day, as well as many hours during the night, our efforts were directed toward the study of anatomy. We toiled faithfully over our microscopes and never ceased to wonder at the intricacies in structure o! the human body. Days passed very slowh and the gruelling routine and monotony were such that many of us would have forsaken medicine for other fields of endeavor had it not been for the kindly counsel of Dr. Jenkins, whose scholarly advice and philosophical teachings did much to carry us through many trying periods ot indecision. Our first deviation from this intensive schedule came November th? 24th when it was our pleasure to act as hosts at the annual Freshman- Sophomore dance in the Palm Room of the Shoreham Hotel. We welcomed this opportunity to enjoy a good party and to become better acquainted with our classmates and faculty. Gradually our program was supplemented with such courses as bacteriol- ogy, physiology, bio-chemistrv and more anatomy. These new fields filled the next semester. Physiology introduced us to circles and arrows! Finally summer came and we welcomed a much deserved and long needed rest. When classes resumed in the fall our work was undertaken with renewed enthusiasm, although we were saddened to learn that too many of our class- mates. to whom we had been so closely drawn by common interests the first year, were not to continue with us. The secrets of bio-chemistry, as revealed by test tubes, litmus paper, and breakable flasks, were gradually unfolded with hours of laborious struggle in an ill-scented room with long black tables. The Page 91 JOHN EVERETT GLEN BARNUM Student Council Hntorian Repretentative HISTORY, CLASS OF 1937 (CONTINUED) arrows and circles were at last cast aside and the opportunity to study experi- mental physiology finally came. Frogs, turtles, cats, dogs, and smoked drums were our tools and the second floor our workshop. Our thanks go to I)r. Choisser, Professor of Pathology, for instilling into us the real romance of disease and presenting to us one of the clearest concepts of the nature of disturbed function it has been our privilege to receive. It was the unanimous opinion ot the class that sincere appreciation should be extended to him. Those intriguing hours will linger in our memories for years to come. We next proceeded to the study of pharmacology and pre- scription writing which so characteristically identified the older school of prac- titioners. In September we entered the clinics for the first time. The sudden trans- gression from the classroom and laboratory to the examination cubicles and sick individuals was, indeed, a difficult one. Poise and confidence were grad- ually acquired, however, as were the fundamentals of surgery and medicine and their branches. Our most interesting and fascinating year passed before we realized it and at its termination we discovered ourselves for the first time as potential physicians with sufficient basic training to understand the diag- nosis and treatment of the more common disorders. This year we were not harassed so frequently by examinations, but were allowed to study and progress as the specific problems arose and our interests dictated. At the termination of the Junior year we were prepared for minor hospital routines, first aid, and other useful tasks in the field of medicine. As a result, many secured junior internships, a few were medical councilors in summer camps, some dis- charged their duties as externs in obstetrics and several of us availed ourselves Page 92 HISTORY, CLASS OF 1937 (CONTINUED) of the opportunity to take a real summer vacation — our last, perhaps, for many years to come. Finally, our Senior year was reached and the many problems appertaining thereto confronted us. The importance of this year was immediately apparent because many decisions, affecting our future course in the Held of medicine, had to be made. We pondered over selecting specialties in order that we might more intelligent!) choose internships which would afford suitable train- ing in them. B late November most of our applications had been submitted to the various hospitals. Interminable days of suspense and anxiety followed. Eventually, however, a long face or a beaming countenance, as the case might be, indicated that letters and telegrams were being received. One more common task confronts us before we receive the degree of M.D. — the final examinations in May. Their completion means the severance of associations among classmates and faculty which will not be easy. A grad- uating class in medicine is bound b ties which rarely exist in any other group of students and the bond established is difficult to fashion except by long and continued common interests and similar emotional experiences. The past four years have probabh been the most illuminating and the most informative in the realm of human experience and. in reminiscence, the effort, though great, i justified by the satisfaction of attainment which prom- ises a fruitful reward. As we depart, it is with great pleasure that we extend our deep appreciation to those whose little suggestions, kindly counsel, and experienced teachings have carefully guided us through the important years of our training. To them, we owe a sincere debt of gratitude.

This year showed a definite advance over former years in curricular and extra-curricular activities. Med ical clinics, seminars, lectures, and illustrated demonstrations, attended by the student members and con ducted by members of the Medical School faculty, chapter alumni, and guest speakers of note, went far to promote medical education and stimulate scientific interests. Several dances and parties lent social brightness to the year’s activities. A well selected student group was initiated, assuring successful continuance and a prosperous future.

Page 112 IN MEMORIAM Dr. William Alanson White PROFESSOR OF PSYCHIATRY ■ Page 113 Page 114 FEATURES Foremost on the tongues of everyone during those last few days before the Cherry Tree is ready for distribu- tion are the questions, " Who won the beauty contest? " " Who has been chosen for the Hall of Fame?” " Where will the March of Events end up this year? " and " Will my picture be in any of the snapshots taken for the Candid Camera section?” An outstanding commercial artist and cartoonist answers our question number one, with hopes that his opinion won’t be at too great odds with local opinion. A faculty com- mittee of judges competent to compare the qualities of seniors answers the second question by selecting the eight most outstanding seniors for the Hall of Fame. The com- bined work of Elisabeth Coale and Mary Kunna, together with their staffs, enables us to know what we did through- out the year in " The March of Events.” As for the snap- shot section, the newest addition to the Features Section, you ' ll have to look for yourself to see just who’s there. eauty Contest We present to you the three most beautiful girls at The George Wash- ington University, through the kind co-operation of Mr. George B. Petty, an artist familiar to all. The selec- tions were made from portrait and full length photographs of each of the following fourteen candidates: Mary Armstrong, Kitty Baart, Anne Bochine, Harriet Brundage, Corrinne Gelwick, Ruth Leavitt, Aurelia Mitchell, Doris Moon, Ethel Nelson, Mildred Patterson, Sue Slater, Beverly Squires, Frances Walsky, and Annie G. White. For the first time in years, full length pictures of each entrant were sub- mitted with the portrait photos in or- der to facilitate the judgment. Georae B. Pettu JUDGE FOR THE 1937 Beauty Contest Miss Ethel M. Nelson, Editor-in-Chief, The 1937 Cherry Tree, George Washington University, Washington, D. C. Dear Miss Nelson: First, may we compliment you on the excel- lent presentation of the beauty contestants ' photos. The neat arrangement added greatly in the difficult task of determining the most beautiful. Our selection follows: First place — SUE SLATER Second place — RUTH LEAVITT Third place— BEVERLY SQUIRES With the sincere hope that one man ' s decision will not be at too great odds with local opinion. Sincerely, Sue Slater Ruth Leavitt Beverly Squires Page 128 The Hall of Fame Traditionally there appears in the Cherry Tree a section including pic- tures of those seniors who have been selected as most outstanding in ac- tivities, scholarship, and general worthiness of recognition. For three years, a faculty committee composed of Mrs. Barrows, Dean Doyle, Dean Johnstone, Dean Kay- ser, and Mr. Farrington, has co-oper- ated with the Cherry Tree in select- ing senions for the Hall of Fame. Their task, though a difficult one, has always been justly done, and we now present the fruits of their weighing, comparing, and final se- lecting. Verna Volz Kief ei W € Page 132 of Events Dedicated to the memory of all phases of campus and University life and activity, the March of Events records by word and picture the chronological order of events which took place during the outstanding school year, 1936-37. At times humorous, at times whim- sical, at times merely relating plain facts, the co-workers of this section, Elisabeth Coale, artist, and Mary Kunna, writer, aided by their effi- cient staffs, have given us the sec- ond new March of Events, using illustrations instead of photographs to better portray the mood of the events under consideration. MARCH OF EVENTS CAMP LETTS Before registration and classes were even thought of, the G. W. Spirit was roving about in south- ern Maryland in the form of the Buff and Blue football squad. The boys trouped down immediately fol- lowing Labor Day and spent two weeks in training at Camp Letts. Short, intensive scrimmages and real tough drill work occupied the days. New material, old material, proven and unproven, all were there, displaying a fighting spirit unequalled in the past several sea- sons. Local sports scribes wrote of the " smooth-looking machine,” " far better balanced than last year’s.” Coach Jim Pixlee’s expectations ran high even with his star Tuffy Leemans graduated and signed up with the N. Y. Giants for a season of " pro” football. This season saw the introduction of a new coach: Botchy Koch (pro- nounced Cook) from Baylor, who came up to coach the line. Of course, Coach Reinhart was busy with the backfield material. Only a year at G. VOL and Reinhart built up one of the strongest back- field outfits yet to wear the school’s tegs and headgear. With their muscles hardened, their heads full of sure-fire plays, and their enthusiasm reaching a high pitch, the powerful aggrega- tion returned to the District and school days to await the inaugural battle with Emory and Henry to display their " stuff.” REGISTRATION Saturday, September 19, 1936, the University officially opened for its 116th Academic Year, and Reg- istration began. The campus greeted newcomers and welcomed back the old. The prospective student begin his travail over in Corcoran. With a catalog, a bulletin cf clis:e:, vague directions, a long card on which to write his life history over and over again, he was ready to Page 134 figure out his program. After pro- longed meditation and consultations with various and sundry folks, he worked in five subjects guaranteed to leave him at least four after- noons free for movies. After passing through a long line of checkers, it was finally decided that he could leave his fees with the cashier. From here the student was di- rected to the ' " studio” (Rifle Range) where, after a long wait, the help- less victim was placed on a high perch. When least expecting it, the picture was snapped. The regis- trant may have wondered about the number, but upon sight of the pic- ture all was explained. That ' s all there was to it! CLASSES BEGIN Before a student could recover from the throes of registration and being back at G. W. once more he had to attend classes. This took much looking about for the right building. Then find the correct classroom. The instructor rushed in, intro- duced himself, then proceeded to give a short outline of the course. Lists of texts to purchase were jotted down on stray scraps of pa- per. Then class recessed, for the time being. Twenty-nine members were added to the faculty staff this year, and for the first time, there is a resi- dent physician. Dr. L. Huntley Cate may be found in Building G every day for consultation. DORM OPENS At last a dream long held by President Marvin was realized this year with the opening of the women’s residence hall. This dor- mitory for girls was generously do- nated by Mrs. Hattie M. Strong and named in her honor. Rooms are attractively furnished with modern designed Colonial fur- niture. The automatic elevator has proven an object of fascination and suspense for all. At first, some- what temperamental as to its work- ing hours, the elevator soon settled down and serenely bore its noisy oc- cupants up and down the six flights of Strong Hall. Page 135 The spacious first floor lobby, re- ception rooms, and entrance hall re- mained conspicuously unfurnished for a while. However, when fur- nished the beauty of their appear- ance more than made up for time passed without these things. Atop the dorm a most effective arrangement of recreation room and solarium has been placed. From the roof terrace can be obtained ef- fective views of G. W. and Wash- ington in general. The nicest thing about Strong Hall is the happiness of its resi- dents! THE UNION CAMPAIGNS The Rights, Lefts, and Centrists generously distributed blantant blurbs on their respective policies. SORORITIES MOVE IN In addition to the two new class room buildings and the dormitory, the University has added another structure to its extension record, that of Sorority Hall. The Tudor apartments at 2129 G Street now house local chapters of seven national sororities. Banded together in true Panhellenic spirit Alpha Delta Pi, Alpha Delta Theta, Delta Zeta, Kappa Kappa Gamma, Pi Beta Phi, Sigma Kappa, and Zeta Tau Alpha are living here. Moving into the newly decorated apartments was brightly dotted with piece-meal carrying of dishes and other odds and ends. No more falling plaster, no more leaky faucets, bumpy floors and shabby walls. A real cause for cele- bration. QUEST FOR FRATRES Fraternities opened up their an- nual drive for possible and probable members with the opening of school and continued their search for a couple of weeks. Freshmen were greeted by a lot of polite and extremely courteous students. The " brothers” invited likely looking prospects up to the house, got them dates with Betty Co-eds, and generally saw that Page 136 their spare moments were beauti- fully filled with ideas of the old fraternity. Through a long series of smokers, dances, mothers ' teas, house dinners, the history and advantages of fra- ternity were expounded, until one dark night when the rushes had reached the saturation point of talk and more talk, they finally gave in and let the ' ' brothers” put on the old pledge button. Of course, there followed smug faces and swollen chests. On the other side, picture the expressions on faces of ye loyal fratres who had lost a juicy prospect. On October 6, the Hatchet let everyone know what everyone else had accomplished. FOOTBALL BEGINS On September 25, the initial test of G. W s strength on the gridiron took place. Students had the first opportunity to try to prove that the pictures in their activity books were of themselves. Score: 27-0 in our favor. ELON VS. G. W. The Elonmen were given a de- cisive licking to the tune of 39-0 cn October 2. Chiefly noted was the spectacular and least expected play of the game when Sampson returned a 90-yard punt for a touchdown in the second quarter. FACULTY WHO ' S WHO Recent edition of " Who’s Who in America” for 1936-37 included the names of fifty-eight members of the emeritus and active faculty list. FRESHMAN MIXER On the night of October 8, 1936, the twice-deferred frosh mixer was finally held. The tin-tabernacle ( . e. y the gym) was gayly decorated with the banners of the Greek letter societies. The Junior College Council and University administration joined to- gether in sponsoring this get-together. The University Band was on hand. Attendance records were broken when 650 people turned out, count- ing of course the 500 upperclass- men who went just to infuse into the event the nonsensical humor and to see that everything turned out " swell.” Page 137 renovated band The band started off with a " Bang!” this year. An enrollment doubling last year ' s and the ap- pointment of Leon Brusiloff, local orchestra leader, as Director, in- fused spirit and enthusiasm of a new kind. Performances at games, Yard concerts, and special appearances showed the result of training and earnest effort. UNION ACTIVITIES The G. W. Union, patterned after the famous Oxford Union, and probably one of the few such student organizations in colleges in the U. S., was busy with party con- ventions for the first months of the school year. The Right, the Left, and the Center parties drew up party plat- forms and nominated their respec- tive presidential candidates. " Democracy vs. Dictatorship’’ was the topic of the big tri-party de- bate held on October 12. The Rights hit at Centerists as insur- gents, impractical, radical. The Lefts counteracted with all sorts of epithets. A grand time was had by all! The Union activities spread to citywide interest when Center party committee viewed their stands via the radio. MISSISSIPPI In a game which proved nothing except when it rains it pours, and that Coach Pixlee had uncovered a great punter in Frank Merka, the Colonials played to a scoreless tie on October 8 in Griffith Stadium. The phrase " Slide, Kelly, slide,” became a reality in the muck of the stadium field. Student spectators sought cover in the covered stands behind the west goal post. A few hardy souls raised umbrellas. UNION VOTES With party caucuses, conven- tions, rallies, and meetings of va- rious and sundry types in the past, the Union held election. Page 138 Three honest-to-goodness auto- matic voting machines were im- ported onto campus for two days’ voting on October 14 and 15. " Sane, orderly government " — as exemplified by the Center Party — won over the prospect of a more " Abundant America” of the Left and a " return of the country to the people” by the Right. Students, casting a total of 1.184 votes, gave the presidency to Robert Doolan and his Center Party. Thus the Center Party was as- sured of 48 seats in the Union uni- cameral body, the Lefts 29 and the Rights 23. With the election over, the Union announced the establish- ment of permanent headquarters in G-l with the services of an N. Y. A. student as an office force. ARKANSAS On the night of October 16, G. W. attained national recognition with its astonishing upset of the Razorbacks from the University of Arkansas. Rain still followed the G. W. team. A bunch of fighting fools from G. W. completely outplayed the tall mountaineers of the Ozarks to snatch a 13-6 victory before the un- believing eyes of 17,000 waterlogged followers. It was a gem, that game. The spectacle of the Buffmen, who were quite fair-sized boys, but who looked like high schoolers beside the Razorbacks, actually outpassing the " greatest passing team in the country” during the first half, had the spectators goggle-eyed. Between halves the unexpected popped up out there at Griffith Sta- dium — besides the Colonials wiping up the muddy spots of the field with the visitors. Remember the " Three Little Pigs” skit that had the entire stands in an uproar dur- ing the intermission? Three little pigs, misrepresenting Arkansas men, were chased in and out of their straw hut by big bad wolf — G. W. INAUGURAL BALL Following the rousing victory over Arkansas, a jubilant student body trouped across town to the Kennedy-Warren. Here the Stu- dent Council was sponsoring the first in a series of dances, and had called it Inaugural Ball as a sort of celebration for the new Student Council officers — elected in the Spring of 1936. Page 139 In an after-the-game informality, the crowd had a " swell " time. Just to make it truly after-the-game, the Varsity team and Arkansas team were invited. G. W. VS. WAKE FOREST Playing before the largest crowd of the year, G. W. and Wake For- est put on the most sensational game of the year on the night of October 23. After the Deacons had forged ahead 12-7 as the result of a lucky pass, the Buff put on as stirring a drive as seen in many a day. With Kaufman acting as a spearhead, the Colonials went 80 yards to a score. And what a score! With two seconds to go, the crowd going mad, and twenty-two players in action, Kaufman faded back and threw a short pass, frantic hands attempted to bat it down, but the Gods of Fate were with G. W. as the ball came to rest in the arms of Turner across the goal. Defeat turned to victory. SORORITY RUSHING With the Fraternity Rush Season a thing of the past, the femmes on campus start in. Theirs, as usual, was accomplished with feminine at- tention to detail and form. Finesse is the word for it. Elaborate plans were laid out for the rushees, who were slightly bewildered to find so- rority women could not speak to them on certain occasions — Pan- hellcnic rules. All the Greek women simpered over likely prospect s and after a two weeks round of teas and more teas, the groups had narrowed down to final pledges. The night of the final party found not a few still wavering and a last bit of pressure was screwed on. Gals who never knew of national organization swore up and down that their group was classed highest. The final party was not the end. Dear little rushees were further agog over receipt of special delivery preference cards. This sealed their doom for a whole year. On October 27, one hundred and forty-eight women floated about campus wearing the colors of their Page 140 chosen group in the form of cor- sages. The honeymoon over — time for the actives to get them cleaning up the rooms. MRS. LEE ARRIVES About this time in the school year, the girls living in Strong Hall welcomed the news that they were to have a Mother. With the ap- pointment of Mrs. Clifton Lee, of Richmond, a., as hostess for the dormitory, the girls more than real- ized their wishes for a house mother. A charming and understanding person, Mrs. Lee has proven herself and has added much to making strong Hall the ideal home which it is. STUDENT POLL ia straw ballot, Coupon No. 20 (from Student Activity Book), the campus followed the national trend and gave Roosevelt a 63 c c majority in the Hatchet poll. Asso- ciate Editor Ennes burned the bal- lots. FACULTY CLUB RE-OPENS During November the Faculty Club brought their furniture and equipment out of storage and set up housekeeping once again. This time they moved into the former Columbian house, 714 21st Street. The first floor has been turned into a dining room — luncheon for the faculty — breakfast and dinner for the Strong Hall girls. RICE, 12— G. W. ( 6 The Colonials journeyed all the way to Houston, Texas, to meet their first defeat of this season. The Rice Owls held the Buffmen two touchdowns to one. 1.500 miles from home, in un- usual heat, the boys played heads up football, but the Texans were just a bit too much for them. How- ever, it nas quite different from the lacings received at the hands of the same school last year. (Remember the track meet, 41-0.) The hometown did not forget the boys wandering over the country- side. In a special broadcast, foot- ball fans followed the game play by play via the radio, and did their cheering in the gym. HATCHET MOVES After years of residence at 2016 H Street, the Hatchet office was moved on October 14 to a new location at 700 20th Street — per- Page 141 haps more familiarly known as Building F. Smelling to high heaven of paint, the five-room suite welcomed the Hatchet staff. Quite noticeable be- cause of their absence were the traces of years which had become attached to the walls of the old building — signs of the times when " Chips” were flying, " Boss” Schoen- feld held midnight conferences, and Madigan re-wrote the entire paper at 2 a.m. No three-floor home, but a lowly five-room suite in the basement of Building F is now the Hatchet of- fice. The editor’s office could be termed " cubby hole,” and the two other rooms as city room and staff. G. W. VS. DAVIS-ELKINS Playing their first afternoon game, the Colonials met stern re- sistance from a scrappy Davis- Elkins team, but turned on the power in the second half and won 19-6. FALL SPORTS WEEK Keeping in step with the seasons, the Women’s Athletic Association celebrated each season with a spe- cial activity. Daily during the golden October weather, dainty misses brushed up on their skill in hockey, soccer, tennis, archery, golf, and riding. This all led the " Fall Sports Week,” which brought the fall sea- son to a close in a fitting climax. This week was celebrated along with other Homecoming activities to welcome the alums. The honorary varsity hockey team played the Alums. Finals in the archery and tennis tournaments were played and the riding show took place. HATCHET CLASSES " Professor” Ennes tells Hatchet scribes all about the 5 W ' s of a lead. Wonder what the would - be scribes made on that exam the " prof” gave? THE " TRACK MEET " A track meet took place on the night of November 14 at the Ca- tawba game, when the G. W. team crossed the goal eight times in a 50-0 victory. Sampson’s race for ninety yards was the outstanding event. HATCHET TRIUMPHS First place in the semi-annual editorial page contest of the I. N. A. (Intercollegiate Newspaper As- sociation of the Middle Atlantic States) was the prize copped at the I. N. A. convention the week-end of November 1 3. Page M2 Margaret Davis and Howard Ennes, associate editors, and Arthur Branscombe of the Senior staff, were present at Muhlenberg College to receive the good news. Also entered in the news and make-up contest, the Hatchet placed second, being outstripped by only one point. G. W.— HOOD-GOUCHER The G. W. co-eds brought home a bus full of laurels. The load was evidently too much, for the bus broke down outside of Rockville. However, such a trifling incident could not dampen the spirits of vic- tors! UNION CONVENES On Friday evening, November 22, Robert Doolan, duly elected by students as president, was sworn into office by retiring president, Ted Pierson. The first meeting of the Union’s second year in existence came off with a ,f bang” when President Doolan found himself presiding at a heated discussion of the judiciary committee report that ranged from Right to Left. HOMECOMING By special broadcast, downtown display, car posters, the 1936 Home- coming Celebration over the Thanksgiving week-end gave good indication of surpassing all previous ones. Activities started with the regis- tration of visiting alums in Colum- bian House. Pilgrimages of old and very new campus highspots were made. Next on the program was a tea and reception in Strong Hall. From there the crowd trouped down G Street to the dedication of Building D. HOMECOMING DEDICATION With the suspension of five o’clock classes, G Street blocked off, dedication of Building D got under way. The Metropolitan Police were kept busy from about three o’clock towing away the cars of unobserv- ing motorists who took no heed cf " No Parking after 1 p.m. today.” The University band whipped up a bit of atmosphere. Then the cornerstone was rolled into place. G Street was a mass of student humanity as the ceremonies came off. President Marvin and Trustee Noyes spoke. Page 143 The " services” came to a close with bells ringing for belated 5 o’clocks, and strains of " Alma Ma- te r” floating across the campus. Spirits were high with holiday thoughts. Anticipation of things to come was quite evident. HOMECOMING— RALLY With classes over for the week- end, and thoughts of tomorrow’s game, and dance (not to mention feast), the alums and student body convened at the Rialto Theatre for the best of rallies seen hereabouts in years and years. An enthusiastic audience of 1,300 entered into the spirit of things with the abandon of holiday frivol- ity. Pictures of the Rice game, many shorts, and a Marx Bros, comedy were given in the line of entertainment. The Student Council took this occasion to spring the surprise of the evening and presented a bronze loving cup to President Marvin for " ten years service to George Wash- ington University.” As to all rallies, came the usual list of " pep” talks and speeches. The Rally wa s an occasion for O. D. K. tapping. Hugh H. Clegg, Chairman of the Committee, be- came an honorary pledge, and Pro- fessor John A. Mclntire, of the Law School, an associate pledge. Student pledges " for outstanding extra-curricular activities” were Morse Allen, Edmund Browning, Bourke Floyd, Bruce Kerr, and Clyde Smith. HOMECOMING— GAME It was cold, but it was fair. The stadium was packed. Chrysanthe- mums and team colors were gener- ously sprinkled in the crowd. G. W. and West Virginia went at it tooth-and-nail. Every time you looked up there was a penalty be- ing called. There was more clip- ping at the game than goes on at a millionaire’s bondclipping cere- mony. It was good fun, though. As the day drew near a close, feet became numb with cold, and thoughts of turkey grew greater Page 144 and greater. The final whistle blew with the scoreboard pointing to G. W. victory — 7-2. HOMECOMING— BALL The Hall of Nations in the deeper labyrinths of the Washing- ton Hotel was the scene of the largest (well, one of the largest, you chairmen of the past) gatherings ever witnessed at a Homecoming Ball. It looked as though half of Washington was in attendance! — and having one grand time. The dancers took enough time out to listen to the announcement of the awards. Sigma Chi came out first for the most cleverly decorated fraternity house, and Pi Phi’s copped the prize for selling the most tickets. The music stopped at 1:00, but ’twas nigh on to 2:00 before the last of the long line had reached the checking desk. Obliging friends came out of line heaped high with brothers’ wraps. DAVIS CONTEST Amid formality of dress and speech, five Seniors, all men, met in solemn conclave on the evening of Thursday, November 19, in Corcoran Hall- 10 to compete in the eighty-ninth annual Davis Speak- ing Contest. Edmund Browning, Edward Kemper, Charles Kiefer, Austin Roe, and Paul Snow, in nervous an- ticipation of the honor (and cash award) duly delivered their pre- pared speeches before the judges. " Chuck” Kiefer was awarded first place for his fiery and well- delivered address on the New Deal entitled, " The Lesson of England.” Austin Roe won second prize speak- ing on need of " A School of Music for The George Washington Uni- versity.” Edward Kemper placed third with his discussion of " The University and the Fraternity.” On Class Night, in June, these young men will receive their awards for " most progress in the field of public speaking.” ALUMNI REVIEW G. W. forges ahead! November saw the issuance of the second num- ber of the Alumni Review. Some- thing for this year’s grads to look forward to receiving, once they have that sheepskin in hand. SEE NAPLES AND DIE When the thespians of Cue and Curtain put on a show, they put on a show. See Naples and Die was no exception to that rule. This lively comedy by Elmer Rice was ably directed by Marvin Beers and the cast, headed by Page 145 Charles McVickers, Peggy Gusack, and Hamilton Coit, justified their places in the production by smooth performance throughout. ENGLISH DEBATE Mid scholarly, solemn argument, the G. W. team debated the Eng- lish team which was on tour in the United States. The topic was unusual to say the least. " The Democratic-Republican system resembles Tweedledum vs. Tweedledee” — which was which was not revealed. SWISHER ANNIVERSARY Dr. Charles C. Swisher, beloved professor, celebrated his ninetieth birthday on December 6, 1936, and the students gave him a " party.” GLEE CLUBS SING WITH SYMPHONY On Sunday, December 13, at Constitution Hall, Dr. Hans Kin- dler directed the National Sym- phony Orchestra. On the program were the Men’s and Women’s Glee Clubs of our own University. This was the second performance with Dr. Kindler, and it was no small honor to appear with such distinguished artists. Our choristers acquitted them- selves nobly in their rendition of Beethoven’s Choral Phantasy. PROPOSED LIBRARY An eight-story building, between Buildings C and D, the keystone of the campus of the future! On paper only, at this writing, it is true, but we shall have it soon, if past performances are an indica- tion of getting plans to materialize. G. W. HOST TO HIGH SCHOOL ORATORS Two hundred high school stu- dents, aspiring orators all, gathered in our hallowed halls on December 11 and 12 for the fourth annual conference sponsored by the Public Speaking Department. Registration, official welcome by Union President Doolan, and in- spection of the campus introduced the visitors to G. W. Round table discussions, conferences on the sub- ject, " Should electric utilities be government owned and operated,” and finally a banquet luncheon at the Mayflower closed the conven- tion. WOMEN RIFLERS In three of the big matches of the year, the women riflers defeated Pennsylvania and Indiana and lost a Page 146 shoulder - to - shoulder match to Drexel Institute. This loss was well worth the cost — for the match was shot in Philly, giving the G. W. team their first trip in six years. Photographers on search for good " shots” posed the traveling team holding up the train engineer. FOOD DRIVE Before Christmas of each year, G. W. campus turns philanthropic and generously supports the Food Drive designed to aid less fortunate Washingtonians. With Catherine Porter and Ray Howard as co-directors, the campus was thoroughly canvassed by " Food- drivers,” to whose ears there was no sweeter music than the clinking of coins. T. K. E. won the silver loving cup for largest contribution. K. D. and Phi Mu came in second and third. Contributions totaling $595.99 enabled the committee to bring Christmas cheer to over 200 people. BASKETBALL OPENS G. W.’s quintet, led by Coach Reinhart, opened the toughest sea- son any Colonial five has faced by journeying over to the hostile haunts of Johns Hopkins and de- feating the Jaybirds 41-22. Flashing a brand of basketball which stamped it as one of the out- standing teams of the East, the team scored an impressive 39-19 vic- tory over a strong Marshall College team in its first home game. BRIDGE TOURNEY Saturday afternoon in December found Sorority teams busy trying to outplay each other in the tourna- ment for the Panhel cup. CHRISTMAS VACATION Concentration was decidedly a greater effort than usual after the fifteenth of December with Christ- mas vacation just around the cor- ner. Thoughts of mistletoe, holly, and brightly covered packages occupied the minds of the student body. Page 147 With bags packed and a book or two " just in case I find time ’ students started out, via any and every means of travel, for Christ- mas at home. FOREIGN STUDENTS TEAS Under the genial guidance of Professor Alan T. Deibert, adviser to foreign students, the Interna- tional House is regularly turned into a sort of " League of Nations” arrangement with students from foreign countries enjoying the hos- pitality and comradeship of these delightful teas. NEW SOCIAL SCIENCE LIBRARY The Library opened a branch de- voted entirely to the social sciences in the lower floor of the new Social Science Building. RADIO PLAYERS Radio Players reorganized this year and have accomplished a great deal with their new burst of enthu- siasm. During January the farce, " Sa- tan’s Headache,” was broadcast over Station WMAL. If you had been at the studio, you would have enjoyed the professional attitude of the cast as they stood awaiting the flash of the green light to tell them they were on the air. In recognition of their achieve- ments, they were incorporated into the Cue and Curtain dramatic or- ganization. G. W. VS. ARMY Playing for the first time in its history at West Point, G. W. won a closely fought contest from the Army team to the tune of 33-29. The lead see-sawed back and forth until the last few minutes when the Colonials put on a spurt and ended with a 4 point lead. HART HONORED Along with student initiates, Gamma Eta Zeta bestowed hon- orary membership on Miss Mar- garet Hart, society editor of the Star. PLEDGE PROM With Black Rasputin and his twelve Mad Monks raring at one end of the room and Lee Fields with his soothing rhythms at the Page 148 other end, the dancers were kept on their toes continuously on the night of January fifteenth when the Inter- fraternity Pledge Council " threw” one of the most enjoyable dances held at G. W. in many a moon. The tenth floor ballroom of the Raleigh Hotel was gayly decorated with balloons, which effected a pretty picture when released and a furor when they reached dancers bent on " popping” them. G. W. VS. THE DEACONS The G. W. University gym was packed to overflow. Victory mad Colonials couldn’t be stopped and the Deacons were outclassed in all stages of the game on January 14. Every man on the Buff and Blue squad saw action. G. W. trounced the Deacons 55-33. CAMPUS BEAUTIES Ye Editor of this volume pulled a fast one this year and obtained the services of Petty, the drawer of the famous Esquire ladies, to judge campus queens. Elsewhere you will find his se- lection of G. W.’s three most beau- tiful girls from the fourteen photo- graphs submitted to him. What do you think? FINALS AND THE LULL! Somehow or another all those good resolutions made in September to keep up with assignments, were forgotten until exam schedule ap- peared. Then the scurrying about to buy textbooks, copy your neigh- bor’s notes, and cram, cram, cram! Remember how you thought you couldn’t possibly remember all the stuff you’d gone over and keeping awake was a job? As the end of the five-day grind approached, that air of well " what is to be, is to be” was quite evident. Relaxation in the form of mid-term vacations and social activities for the time being obliterated thoughts of study. REGISTRATION AGAIN! Mid-year registration does not come up to the fall in amount of time and energy expended, but it’s the same old routine. Were you in that long, long line stretching down 21st Street await- ing a chance just to get started? A PARKING LOT! How many gallons of gas have you consumed in going around and around the block in the almost vain hope that a parking space would suddenly appear? Then you, with the rest of the plutocrats who own their own means of travel, welcomed the news of a parking lot for G. W. students alone, sans charge! And if you were one of those poor souls who went down to re- Paqe 49 trieve the old buggy early and found that everyone, who had come in after you, had blocked all means of escape, you certainly were glad to have parking regulated in nice even rows with approach and de- proach quite easy! Then, too, it was a good chance for N. Y. A.’s to put in hours. G. W. VS. GENEVA On February 9, G. W. won a sensational victory over the highly touted Geneva College team. Although Geneva had a long list of victories to its credit, including the ace Long Island team, the Buff and Blue easily routed them by the score of 46-26. ENGINEERS BALL Would-be and will-be engineers’ big night-out of the school year came off on the 12th of February this year. The west ballroom of the Shoreham Flotel was packed with revellers. Guest of honor, Brig. Gen. Max C. Tyler, escorted Sue Slater, and George Rhine, president of the En- gineering Council, escorted Anne Dienstl in the grand march. G. W. VS. LOYOLA Loyola of Chicago, led by six- foot-nine Mike Novak, over the 22nd of February, spoiled G. W.’s holiday celebration and snapped a three-year record of being unde- feated in a home game. With the Buff and Blue regulars playing under par and Big Mike knocking down most of the at- tempted shots, the Chicagoans amassed a big lead at half time. Staging a comeback in the second half, G. W. came to life, but the Westerners were able to hold a two point lead and came off victorious, 36-34. CHERRY BLOSSOMS About George’s birthday you heard " F4AVE YOU bought your Cherry Blossom?” If you couldn’t produce one of these tiny blossoms as evidence of your purchase, you got hold of a dime real quick-like and warded off any further onslaught by the fair saleswomen. This little game is played each year primarily to raise money for the School of Government, but also Page 150 to give the sorority girls something to do besides attend teas. It is not confined to our campus, but Masonic Clubs throughout the United States are busy selling these cherry blossoms to raise funds for G. W. WINTER CONVOCATION Traditionally held on George Washington ' s birthday, winter con- vocation took place on February 22nd in Constitution Hall. President Marvin gave the charge to the three hundred and fifteen stu- dents receiving their junior certifi- cates or degrees. This convocation was the occa- sion of the installation of the G. W. chapter of Sigma Xi, national sci- entific society, and the induction into the organization of President Marvin, Dr. Gilbert Grosvenor, and Major General U. S. Grant, both of the Board of Trustees, and fifty faculty members. Recognition of the achievement of eight internationally known sci- entists was made at the graduating ceremonies coincident with the in- stallation of Sigma Xi, when hon- orary degrees were conferred upon Dr. William A. White, Dr. John G. Merriam, Dr. Charles Abbot, Dr. Lyman J. Brigg, Dr. William Bowie, Dr. Paul Bartsch, and Dr. Ellery. A very impressive and important occasion! BARN DANCE The early 1937 crop of perennial greenhorns were entertained by cam- pus Hirams and Sally Belles in overalls and gingham dress, respec- tively, who swung their partners when the Student Council combined the frosh mixer with a barn dance. The horse and buggy team (the atmosphere) got lost somewhere and never did make the dance, but half of the student body did and unanimously voted it the most en- joyable yet! The Student Club was decorated in true rustic scheme and dancers kept in the spirit. PLEDGES NO LONGER Pledges of the fall are ripe and ready for initiation along about the last of February. This year’s crop running true to form has weathered the months of fraternity history quizzes and du- ties given to lowly pledges. Not a few fall by the wayside weighted down by heavy marks and debts, but the campus just flows over with newly initiated " brothers” and " sis- ters” in that great brotherhood and sisterhood of their respective choices. Page 151 ANOTHER DRIVE If it isn’t one thing, it’s another. This time it’s the flood. As per usual G. W. student body and faculty came through! G. W. VS. LONG ISLAND With the Tech gym packed to the extent that spectators were al- most sitting on the playing floor and lined to the sidewalk, G. W. took on its arch-rival, Long Island. Taking advantage of an apparent nervousness on the part of the Co- lonials, the New Yorkers ran up an 18-6 lead at half time. What a second half! With the mob going hysterical and G. W. uncorking a stirring rally, they pulled up to within three points of a tie, but here the Long Islanders tightened their defense and won 28-24. STUDENT CLUB ENLARGED! " Meet me over at the Student Club!” became so popular a phrase with everyone that the place wouldn’t hold any more. So, in the recess of George’s birthday, the walls were knocked out and the place enlarged. Just more territory to look over to see if Tom, Dick, or Harry is there. INTERFRATERNITY PROM The social season at its peak! That’s the Interfraternity Prom. Hal Kemp and his famous or- chestra found an appropriate setting for their ultra-ultra music in the tenth floor ballroom of the Willard Hotel all bedecked with banners of campus fraternities for the occa- sion. The campus crowd, smartly at- tired in formal dress, swayed to the grand rhythms beneath special lighting effects. During intermission the usual meting out of awards took place. Tapping services for Gate and Key followed. One, in some instances two members, of each group heard their names called out for member- ship in Gate and Key. Page 152 Two o ' clock in the morning and the music was through, but wraps had to be gotten. The mad scram- ble over, noses pointed toward food. It was the girls’ turn now to see what they could do when the Pan- Hellenic Prom came around. TO PUERTO RICO Don ' t you wish you ' d gone out for the debate team? Imagine an Easter vacation spent in Puerto Rico. That was the re- ward for their interest and accom- plishments in debating which came to three old faithfuls on the G. W. debate team — Edwin Cage, William Rochelle, and John Southmayd. THE NEW GOSSOON Sparkling with Irish wit and an- tics, the second of the Cue and Cur- tain productions was put on for G. W. ' s approval on the evenings of March 19 and 20 at Wardman Park. Even the newspaper critics were high in their praise. We vote it the best show of the year. VAN VLECK ANNIVERSARY A silver anniversary is a record in any walk of life. Dean Van Vleck’s record has been made on the staff of the Law School. The Law Alumni tendered him a testimonial dinner on March 20 at the Mayflower Hotel at which Sir Wilmott Lewis was guest speaker, and members of the board of trus- tees, alumni, and student body, spoke in glowing terms of the Dean’s service with and for the Law School. The Dean was presented with a gold watch from the Law Alumni and Faculty in recognition of his work. LAW REVIEW MAKES NEWS Adding to its long list of notable achievements in printing articles of worth and up-to-the-minute impor- tance, with the March, 1937, issue, the Law Review outdid itself. Entirely devoted to history and rulings of the I. C. C., this " de luxe” edition commemorated the semi-centennial anniversary of that Commission. EASTER PARADE March 26 to April 2. Didn’t quite fell like spring, but it was va- cation time. A few days of noth- ing to think about, or did you have a report due? Page 153 CHERRY TREE TO PRESS April first. You who are idly skimming through this book and thumbing page after page in pleasant (we hope) recollection, can never real- ize the fast and furious pace at which the entire staff was working to meet the deadline. We hope you like it. PAN-HELLENIC PROM " Swing-ing and sway-ing with Sammy Kaye” fitted the picture for the night of April 6 when that gen- tleman ' s orchestra was the Pan- Hellenic Prom’s plum in the pud- ding. The main ballroom of the Willard looked like an advertise- ment for Greek letter societies with the sorority banners hung about. Delphi tapping honored twelve outstanding sorority women. As usual intermission was occu- pied with the meting out of cups for bridge, hockey, bowling, and ping pong. Female populace, looking partic- ularly lovely in the latest of evening gowns and coiffures, returned the compliment of the Interfraternity Prom and did one excellent job of it. STUDENT COUNCIL ELECTION About the last of April, Student Council elections are planned. We can foresee just what will happen. Much gathering of signatures for nomination petitions — disqualifica- tion of ineligibles — party caucuses and smart moves — High politics invade the campus for a short span of time while the two machines meet on the field of battle for the honor of putting their candidates into the student govern- ing body, the Student Council. The Progressives and the Service Club align themselves in different camps of social organizations for a free-for-all in an endeavor to cop student positions. After the smoke has cleared away — what? PAN-AMERICAN DAY On April 14, the University cele- brated Pan-American day with an attractively published pamphlet. MAY I— BASEBALL About May first the baseball team was skipping through its schedule a mile a minute. Page 154 uM. PRESIDENT MARVIN ' S ANNIVERSARY DINNER In recognition and celebration of ten years of service and achieve- ment as President of our University, Cloyd Heck Marvin was honored at an anniversary dinner. On the night of April 30th the main ballroom of the Mayflower Hotel was turned into a huge ban- quet hall. Guests including every variety of G. W.-ites — Trustees, faculty, administration, alumni, stu- dents, and friends were banded to- gether to give honor to the " Prexy.” Representatives of each of these groups spoke in glowing terms of the accomplishments of " ten years of progress.” Under Marvin’s leadership, the University has forged ahead in every field. Academic standards and entrance requirements have been raised, the teaching staff enlarged, and facilities have been increased and modernized. The past decade has seen the erection and acquisition of new buildings and property. These are a few of the achieve- ments which make President Mar- vin’s record an enviable one. We have just reason to be proud of our President. GLEE CLUB CONCERT AND DANCE Climaxing a year of brilliant per- formances, the Glee Club closed their " season” with what is becom- ing a tradition — the concert and dance. The Women’s Glee Club ren- dered a group of songs. The Men’s Glee Club rendered another group of songs. Then combined they sang to the appreciative audience. Not content with this, they grouped to- gether with the Alumni Glee Club for several numbers. Incidental accompaniment was rendered by Brusiloff (band direc- tor) an his own orchestra. With finis written to the concert program, the chairs were cl eared away and dancing was in order. Page 155 SPRING FEVER This nostalgia wandered up and down the campus for weeks, but it was not until mid-May that its full force became quite evident. Afternoons find the benches in the Yard fully occupied. Study is put off " til later” in deference to a walk down around the Lincoln Me- morial or a ride into the country. About this time of the year, young things are seen walking slow- ly around and about, not heeding a soul. Some call it spring, others call it love! CHERRY TREE OUT — and we don ' t mean the Japa- nese cherry blossoms either. We re- fer to the book you are now hold- ing, dear reader. How do you like MAY 15— RELIEF If things run true to form, the government should have a batch of " relief " checks up at the Univer- sity today to pay off N. Y. A. stu- dents for another month ' s labor. JUNE FINALS These are five — no ten — times worse than mid-terms. It is so grand out! There is much scurrying about and buying of blue books. The midnight oil is burnt, in search, not of pleasure, but of knowledge for the morrow’s exam. The prof will probably ask you all the facts contained in the footnotes, which you inadvertently skipped, or in the lecture you missed. It’s a great life! And you’re only young once. SENIOR WEEK Senior week at George Washing- ton, like those at other Universities, is a conglomeration of events. A final send-off! A party for years of work! The first event was class night. The Yard was dressed up for the occasion with electric lights strung gaily across the campus. University dignitaries, the Band, and Glee Clubs were in attendance. The au- dience was generously sprinkled with proud parents, present to see their favorite son and daughter re- ceive due honors. Page 156 " President and Mrs. Marvin re- quest the honor of your presence” — This invitation foretold of a de- lightful afternoon at the annual tea and reception given by the President and Mrs. Marvin for the graduates. Through a receiving line the guests were passed on to the refresh- ments and music, if they cared to dance. Chatting and meeting with friends was the order of the after- noon. On June 6, in cap and gown, the graduating class assembled at the Washington Cathedral for the Bac- calaureate sermon, a solemn and impressive occasion. The Alumni Association, as a sort of " farewell” and " greeting” honored the graduates at the annual Senior Ball. Best of music, swank- iest of places, happiest of times de- scribes this evening. Each graduate wore a red rose — the gift of the alumni and an annual custom. Wednesday, June 9 — Convoca- tion! Warmly clad in cap and gown, the grads filed into Constitu- tion Hall and sat through the pro- gram. Then they slowly filed up onto the platform for that coveted diploma. Au revoir, but not adieu. ALMA MATER Hail, Alma Mater! To thy spirit guiding Pledge we fidelity, By thy name abiding. Armored in courage, Ne’er from battle hiding, Fearless — each loyal son. For through the darkness Like a lamp is shining Knowledge, thy handmaid, In her strength combining With lofty brotherhood, Ne’er her place resigning. Hail, thee, George Washington. For, as thy patron Midst the battle’s dinning, Clear-eyed and fearless Saw his forces winning, So for the war of life Which we are beginning Arm us, George Washington. Page 157 of Campus Life The desire for something new and different is common to almost all college students, no matter whether it is in the field of entertainment or any other part of their experiences. This year ' s innovation in the Cherry Tree is the Parade of Campus Life, presenting pictorially what cannot be adequately described with words. A competent staff headed by Frank Mitchell, including Sterling Wright and Jay Samuel, made this enjoy able section possible. Members of the staff not only took pictures, but took care of all developing, printing, enlarging, and copying that had to be done. A few of the pictures were donated by other students for use in this section.

Another of its more important functions was to sponsor the Interfraternity Pledge Prom which was one of the most successful events of the social season. To stimulate interest in studies, the Council gave a silver Scholarship Cup to the pledge class having the highest quality-point index. The principal function of the organization, however, was to create a stronger fra- ternal bond of good fellowship, not onl among the pledge classes, but also in the active chapters as well.

At George Washington, where many are en- gaged so earnestly in study with little time for social activities, the fraternity and sorority play a great part in offering the opportunity for closer and more intimate contact with classmate friends. A more co-operative spirit between the various social sororities is fur- thered by the Panhellenic Associa- tion, by which rules are passed to guide the groups in their activities. Sorority Hall, one of the buildings which President Marvin has added to the University this year, houses seven of the twelve social sororities. Top row: Goebel. Menefee Walsky, Porter, Watson.

Our social events for the year included as usual a Pledge dance at the Ward man Park Hotel, a Christmas dance at the Kenwood Country Club, and our Spring Formal at the Army-Navv Country Club. For the first time we held our annual George Washington’s birthday dance in the form of a subscription dance at the Shoreham Hotel. Judging from the people who attended, the innovation was a complete success. The year closed with an Open House and the annual Founder’s Day Banquet. Page 21 l p tow: Icenhower, Smith. E.

Kappa Delta won the 1937 Ping Pong Tournament a defending champions, and gave more than any other sorority to the 1937 Food Drive, ranking second of all organizations which contributed. The most novel social function of the year was the pledge presentation dance, at which each of the twenty-five pledges stepped through a large diamond shaped door, representing the pin, and in her turn was introduced. Sigma Mu participated in the annual campaign to sell Kappa Delta Christmas seals, the returns of which go to maintain bed and a dental clinic at the Crippled Children’s Hospital in Richmond. In addition, a large box of toys was sent to the hospital. Josephine King, national inspector, visited the Chapter for a week in December. Neophytes Margaret Williamson . . .

Each year it picks seven, and only seven, of the outstanding men of the Junior Class for membership. They are selected on the basis of high attain- ments both in activities and in scholarship, and in general interest in the growth of the University. The Steel Gauntlet, because of the small number taken in annually, and because of the reasons for their selection is, therefore, one of the highest honors that an undergraduate can receive.

Page 256 THE GENERAL ALUMNI ASSOCIATION To the Class of 1937, the General Alumni Asso- ciation extends greetings. You will hud in the years ahead that graduation, far from severing Univer- sity ties, means a quickening of interest in the future of your University. The development of the University, new buildings, athletic accomplishments, all mean much to the alumni as to the under- graduates. The General Alumni Association is a means through which alumni max do together what each would xx ish to do individually for the progress of the Cniversity. Through it, projects impes ible Charles S. Baker for a single person to accomplish may be realized. Regionai At t.xtM Cl UBS centralized in cities throughout this country, in Puerto Rico and the Philippines, afford the graduate direct contact with other alumni, no matter hoxx remote, geographically, he max be from the Cniversity. With the o mmon intt-est of the University as background, such clubs are often of personal benefit to the young alumnus establishing himself in a nexx location. Professional Groups — Law, Medicine, Library Science, Engineering — tend to bring together members of the same profession with resulting benefit to the professional schools of the Cniversity and to themselves. The Cniversity Administration and the General Alumni Association are embarked upon a well-rounded alumni program. Organization of alumni throughout the country into stronger, more closely-knit organizations is being effected. The .llumm Review goe to all graduate at regular intervals, and this fall the nexx llumm Directory ap- pears, with 37 the latest class to he listed. Such is the program which the General Alumni Association presents to the Clas of 1937. We want your cooperation and counsel.

Edward Stevlingson, president, and Sue Slater, vice-president of the dramatic club, have contributed considerably to the good work and tradi- tional atmosphere of productions. It is attributed to the club, under such excellent leadership, that it should afford ample opportunities to those planning for a movie or theatrical career. Only recently this year, it opened its doors to those most interested in the work, tearing down several old tra- ditional barriers that have prevented the best talent from having an equal chance.

In accordance with three basic principles — religious, educational, and social — educational topics are presented at meetings by prominent members of the Catholic clergy and laity. In addition the Club sponsors Communion breakfasts, separate retreats for men and women in June, social meetings, and four formal dances annually. Newmanism has so expanded that it is now international in scope and is embodied in a Federation of College Catholic Clubs comprising numerous provinces throughout the United States. Canada, Hawaii, Porto Rico, and the Philippines, with a total membership of about 15,000. Page 264 CHRISTIAN SCIENCE ORGANIZATION Christian Science Organization at The George Washington University is one of sixty such organizations composed of students and faculty members of Universities and Colleges in the United States and England organized for the purpose of furthering Christianity. Meetings of this Organization are held at 8:10 P.M. on 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. In addition to the regular meetings, this Organization engaged in various other activities. A reception for all students and faculty members interested in Christian Science was held late in the Fall at Columbian House. The speaker for the occasion was Dr. Wilford L. White, Faculty Adviser of the Organization. A free lecture on Christian Science was given by Professor Herman S. Hering, C. S. B., of Boston, Massachusetts, Member of the Board of Lec- tureship of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts. Authorized books and periodicals on Christian Science including the in- ternational daily newspaper, The Christian Science Monitor , are maintained in the University library by this Organization. Through the study of the Bible and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, this Organization enables many students to carry out more successfully the purpose of education — training for citizenship, impartation of culture, and development of char- acter.

It gives them an opportunity to participate in campus activ- ities that they would not be represented in otherwise — such as debating and intramurals. The club has bi-monthly meetings, alternating business and social. In addition to this the club has sponsored theatre parties, suppers, Halloween, and Christmas parties during the past year.

The principal aim of the society is to create social fellowship and foster a belter understanding among the students from the many countries represented at the University. To accomplish this aim it has been the custom of the society to present a series of national nights, when each national group entertains with the music, dances, literature, and customs peculiar to itself. Parties distinctly American in Havor arc also arranged, as well as an International Night each semester. The social program this year opened with the annual reception and musical for foreign students at the University’s International House Other parties predominantly American were the Halloween Party, the Thanksgiving Bridge, Christmas Party, Annual Ball at Hotel Roosevelt, the April Fool Paity, and the Spnng Picnic. The various national groups presented Mediterranean Night, Asian Night. Noith Europe Night, and the International Night each semester. Throughout the year. Prof. Alan T. Delbert, adviser to stu- dents from foreign countries, entertained the members and their guests at monthly teas at International House. On April 4 the society gave a tea in honor of the foreign students of American University. Cath olic University, and Georgetown University.

In addition to this book, George Washington students publish the Hatchet, the weekly which won the editorial cup at the Middle- Atlantic Intercollegiate Press Convention last fall, and the Student Handbook which is published each September. Cue and Curtain, the chief dramatic organi- zation, has produced “See Naples and Die " and “The New Gossoon. " Both men ' s and women ' s debate teams are meeting tough intercollegiate schedules. The men met a picked team from England in November and are planning a trip to Puerto Rico at Eastertime. The men ' s, women ' s and Alumni glee clubs gave a schedule of programs before various local groups this year. On Decem- ber 13, they sang Beethoven ' s “Choral Phantasy " with the National Symphony Or- chestra. John R.

In 1905 it had acquired the dignity of a 360- page leather-bound chronicle of the year’s activities, and it was graced with a new name, the f ' Mall.” In 1908 the present name was adopted. This issue was dedicated to William Allen Wilbur, now professor emeritus. Since then the book has appeared regularly on or near May 1, and has attempted to be a reliable and interesting chronicle of student affairs. Page 277 THE CHERRY TREE JUNIOR STAFF Top row Roffe.

THE HATCHET Since the appearance in 1903 of the ' ' Columbian Weekly,” students of this University have been in the habit of depending upon a student-published weekly for the news of campus events. Though only a small booklet at that time, the Hatchet, for that publication soon assumed its present name, has grown in quan- tity and quality until it is now a seven-column paper serving almost 7,000 readers. Though this University has no school of journalism, the publication ranks well nationally. This fall, for example, it won the editorial cup, and lost the news cup to Temple by a fraction of a point at the Middle-Atlantic Intercol- legiate Press Conference. The Hatchet has been rated all-American rating for the last three years. Page ? 8 THE UNIVERSITY HATCHET JUNIOR STAFF Top ron McCann. J. R. Evans. Irwin. Rahinowitz. Barnes. Second ton: I.mrhan.

THE HANDBOOK In 1936 the Student Handbook published volume 4, the first volume published b a board not under the auspices of the Hatchet. Though no longer a Hatchet activity, as an independent equal publication, the Handbook followed substantially its old policy. Its purpose is to introduce George Washington and its campus activities to the entering student, anti to provide a directory ft r other students. It was divided into sections corresponding with the various branches of activities, for example, men’s sports, organ- izations, and activities. It contained a calendar of the year of activities and sports schedules, all adapted to fit in a student’s pocket for convenience throughout the year. Daugherty. Speer. Egan Ceppos.

Although social affairs may change from year to year in fraternity houses and in G. W. U. ' s various schools, colleges, and divisions, the five traditional dances of the University never fail to be held. The school year might be said to be divided into five social terms — that of the Homecoming Ball, the Interfraternity Pledge Prom, the Engineers ' Ball, the Interfraternity Prom, and the Panhellenic Prom. 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 dif- ferent atmosphere, apart from the usual every- day surroundings of school. Many lasting friendships between our large faculty and student body are cemented through the campus social functions. Here they have a chance to chat casually with a professor with no thought of school work involved. Velpeau Darljng HOMECOMING BALL Climaxing an unusually successful week of receptions, teas, and open houses, the annual Homecoming Ball was held Thanksgiving night at the Washington Hotel ' s Hall of Nations. During intermission the customary grand march was held. Pi Beta Phi was awarded a plaque for the sorority selling the most tickets, and Sigma Chi received a cup for the most effectively decorated fraternity house. Well over a thousand alumni and students crowded the ballroom to its capacity and danced until one to the strains of Jack Morton’s music. Probably the most coveted prize of the year to fraternities is awarded at the Homecoming Ball — the cup for the best decorated fraternity house. Each fraternity goes to great expense and physical labor to welcome the old grads in the proper spirit. More enthusiasm is probably shown in this competition than in any other during the school year. Page 290 INTERFRATERNITY PLEDGE PROM Nelson Monies Active fraternity men and their dates were entertained by the pledges at the 19; edition of the Interfraternity Pledge Prom, held in the tenth floor ballroom of the Raleigh Hotel on January 15. Continuous music in the form of a " battle of music” was furnished by the torrid tempos of Black Rasputin and his Twelve Mad Monks, and the more soothing melodies of Lee Fields and his ten-piece band. The grand march was led by Betty Hartung, escorted by William Der- rick, president of the Interfraternity Pledge Council, and Margaret Jeschke, who accompanied Nelson Monies, social chairman of the Coun- cil. A galaxy of balloons suspended over the heads of the dancers lent a festive air to the occasion. Two special dances, one for active men and their dates and the other for pledges and their dates, in which no cutting was allowed, were fea- tures of the evening. Page 291 ENGINEERS ' BALL Robfkt Wii.dman On Friday, February 12, the students of the Engineering School and their dates thronged to the west ballroom of the Shoreham Hotel for the annual Engineers’ Ball. Members of the faculty and General Max C. Tyler, Assistant Chief of Army Engineers, were the guests of honor. General Tyler, accompanied by Sue Slater, 1936 Fiesta Queen, and George Rhine, accompanied by Anne DienstI, led the grand march. The dance was easily one of the season’s social highlights. Music by Meyer Davis and his orchestra made the hours short till one o’clock. The Engineers’ Ball is their annual debut party. Every engineer at this time puts away his slide rule and forgets his responsibilities and cares. Although quite formal in aspect, the Engineers’ Ball is not a program affair. Page 292 INTERFRATERNITY PROM Hal Kemp and his famous dance band drew the " cream” of the Uni- versity’s " crop ' ’ of fraternity men and their dates at the annual Interfra- ternity Prom on March 10th in the Willard Ballroom. For the first time in its history the prom was given on Wednesday night rather than the usual Friday. At midnight the grand march was started, led by Charles McCoy, Delta Tau Delta, social chairman of the Inter fraternity Council, escorting Jerry Ray, and Ben Candland, Sigma Chi, president of the Council, with Evangeline Rice. The grand march was a most elaborate and planned affair, composed of the members of the Council and four representatives of each fraternity and their dates. During intermission Council President Ben Candland introduced coun- cil chairmen, who presented a formidable array of cups to the winning fraternal organizations. Hal Kiesel of Phi Sigma Kappa was presented the award for the outstanding varsity basketball player for the second consecutive year. Page 293 PANHELLENIC PROM Geraldine Dili man Members of the twelve campus sororities turned out to " swing and sway” with Sammy Kaye and his renowned band on Tuesday, April 6th, at the Willard Hotel, from 10 until 2. In an effort to outdo the elaborate grand march of the Interfrater- nity Prom, Geraldine Dillman, social chairman and Zeta Tau Alpha delegate, together with Frances Walsky, Phi Sigma Sigma, president of the Council, led the members of the Council and picked representa- tives from each sorority in a unique and very colorful marching routine. Assisted by Katherine Porter, Chi Omega, and Eldridge Loeffler, Pi Beta Phi, on the Social Committee, Gerry Dillman planned one of the finest proms in G. W. sorority history, which ushered in the spring social season with a gorgeous array of colorful frocks of every style and shade. Truly it may be said that this affair is the unofficial beauty contest of the year. Page 294 STUDENT COUNCIL DANCES Paul Brocken Appropriately dressed and in the proper spirit for the occasion, stu- dents and Freshmen mingled in a combination Freshman mixer and barn dance in the Student Club on February 26 , the most enjoyable Student Council dance of the year. The Student Club, newly enlarged, was decorated with cornstalks, wagon wheels, and other rustic trappings. Mel Calvert’s Orchestra and a regular hill-billy trio provided the music. Square dancing was the feature of the evening, but shared honors with an amateur contest. The contest was won by Theda Wonders, who sang " The Loneliest Man in Town.” The informal atmosphere and the spirit of geniality and friendliness were responsible for a most successful Freshman Mixer and a highly enjoyable Student Council dance. Page 295 o James Ebenezer Pixlee Director of Athletics THE COACHING STAFF Headed by Athletic Director Pixlee, the coaching staff of the University boasts a personnel that is equal to if not better than many of the colleges of the country. On the football staff are Head Coach James E. Pixlee; backfield coach William Reinhart, who gained fame at Oregon; line coach Barton Koch, formerly of Baylor University; and William Myers, assistant line coach and former Occidental player, who started the use of the lateral pass here. Mr. Reinhart also coaches the basketball five. Arthur Zahn, former star here, is the mentor for the Freshman team. Mr. E. K. Morris is coach of the baseball nine, aided by Max Farring- ton, assistant director of athletics. Rounding out the staff is Jack Espey, director of sports publicity, whose ingenuity was responsible for the color injected between the halves of the football games. Jack recently was appointed general manager of the Wash- ington Redskin football team, and resigned his position wi th George Wash- ington. Page 298 William Reinhart Max Farrington Arthur Zahn Jack Espey Jean Sexton Edgar Morris William Myers Barty Koch Page 299 Robert Pfahler THE MANAGERIAL SYSTEM The managerial system of the University is headed and directed by the Senior manager of athletics, who co-ordinates the work of the undergraduate managers of all of the sports. Under the Senior manager are the Junior managers of football, basketball, and minor sports. The Sophomore mana- gers are appointed to help the Junior managers and to manage the Fresh- man teams. To enable them to gain experience, Freshmen are appointed by the athletic department to assist the other managers, for they are the ones who later become the Sophomore and then Junior managers, and one of them will later be elected to the coveted post of Senior manager of athletics. The basis for promotion is the merit system, whereby experience and abil- ity count the most. The Senior manager of athletics, the Junior manager of football, and Mr. Max Farrington, assistant director of athletics, elect the next Senior manager. His duties are to see that all of the uniforms and accessories are ready for the players at any time needed and to keep account of all materials. The Senior manager of athletics for the past year was John Brown; the Junior manager of football was James Couch; Junior manager of basket- ball, Robert Pfahler; and the Sophomore managers were Arthur Kleinman, of basketball; Myron Madden, of football; and the Freshman managers were Chester Clark, Allen Rothenberg, William Kirke, and Lawrence Blu- menthal. The managers of the varsity teams receive sweaters, and the man- agers of the Freshman teams receive sweaters with their numerals. Page 300 CHE LEAD E R- E R S Sammy Walker. Head Cheerleader The most optimistic group, and it might be added, leather-lunged, at all varsity functions is without a doubt the cheerleaders. Whether the team is hope- lessly lost or far in the van, it is the duty of the boys with the megaphones to ring a cheer and a heartening yell from the crowd. In the past years, a cheering section had been organized, equipped with cards arranged in forms of letters denoting initials or nicknames of the opposing schools. The organization and proper functioning of this section was one of the duties of the cheerleaders who handled this display with the Rousers Club. How- ever, because of the trouble of erecting special stands for this section, the idea was dropped for the present, and it was necessary for the cheerleaders to arouse enthusiasm without the aid of this section. They accomplished this very well, and also presented themselves at the Union Station when the football team left for Rice, and gave them a rousing send-off. The head cheerleader was Sammy Walker, and he was assisted by Bob Walker, Donald Thomas, Ben Edwards, and Stanley Crane. Crain. Walker, Edwards. Thomas Page 30 I FOOTBALL Youth was predominant among the factors of the success of the George Washington football team in 1936, when, after a season of thrills galore, the record showed that the best showing in modern history was made with seven victories, one loss, and one tie. The team averaged scarcely over 21 years of age and the influx of youth brought an indomitable will to win that brought the eleven from behind to triumph in nearly every contest. After winning the opener from Emory-Henry, 27-0, the new Colonial eleven went ahead the next week to give the first evidence of the powerful squad that was developing by easily outscoring Elon, 39-0. Against Mississippi, on a muddy field, a 0-0 tie resulted. However, the Buff and Blue put on a strong defense against the heavier Ole Miss team and proved to doubters that not only was the team as good as the previous year’s outfit, but perhaps it was better. The game the next week against Arkansas saw the varsity at its peak. Front ron: Sampson Reeve . Mahan. Kavalier ( Cjptdin . Jenkins. Kaufman, Turner, Meric a. ScconJ ran Couch ( Manager | . Hanken.

Page 302 Coming from behind in the first half, the Colonials counter-attacked against the vaunted Razorbacks’ passing attack by doing a good deal of passing, and the final gun saw 10,000 surprised spectators go out, witnesses to a 13-6 upset. Sophomore Frank Merka and backs Kaufman and Reeves starred. Perhaps the most spectacular game and the one that the spectators will remember the longest was the Wake-Forrest fray. Finding unexpected re- sistance, the Colonials only led 7-0 at halftime. At the beginning of the final five minutes that score looked like the margin of victory, but a long return of a punt for a touchdown brought the Carolinians within one point of the varsity. A minute later a desperate pass connected for another touch- down and the Deacons were ahead, 12-7. With three minutes to go, the Colonials proceeded to march 60 yards up the field in six plays. On the sev- enth play, with the ball snapped as the whistle blew, Joe Kaufman tossed a sharp pass to Jay Turner, who dragged two men over the goal line with him. Rice spoiled the record by winning over the Buff, 12-6, in Texas. After defeating Catawba, 50-0, the varsity ended the season by coming from behind again to down the West Virginia team, 7-2, on Thanksgiving Day. Outstanding on the team were Reeves, Jenkins, Prather, Hanken, Kava- lier, Kaufman, Yurwitz, Stapleton, Cottingham, Tihila, Sampson, Turner, Holt, Weinberg, Harringer, Merka, and Schiering.

W., 13; WAKE-FOREST, 12 The reason why George Washington was the most colorful team in Washington last year was most in evidence late in October, when a combination of fight and grit gave the team the most sensational victory seen in these parts for some time. G. W. scored first when Herb Reeves tossed a long pass to George Jenkins, who caught the ball on the run and sped over the goal line. Up to the last few min- utes this score looked like the deciding one, but, as spectators saw, it wasn t. With five minutes to go, Daniels returned a punt 50 yards for the Wake-Forest team ' s first score, and three minutes later a long pass was caught over the goal line to put the visitors ahead. Three minutes were left to play, so long passes were tried. The first, a long heave from Joe Kaufman, was received by Bob Faris cut of the hands of two Wake-Forest men. In three more plays G. W. was knocking at the goal line. When the ball was snapped on the seventh play, the whistle blew, ending the game, but the game couldn ' t end until the play was completed. Joe Kaufman retreated and looked for eligible receivers. The Wake-Forest defense was de- coyed by Bob Faris, who went over the goal line, then Jce tossed a short pass to Jay Turner, who dragged two men over the goal line to win the most thrilling and sensational game of the year.

Hard tackier, sure pass receiver, and fine blocker, Holt is destined to go far in the next two years. Page 3 06 G. W. ( 13; ARKANSAS, 6 In perhaps the biggest upset of the local football season, the George Washing- ton football team unceremoniously defeated the Razorback eleven from Arkan- sas, 13-6. The Arkansas team, which was vaunted for its passing attack, came here and was outpassed by a lighting Colonial team headed by back Joe Kaufman, whose aerials more than matched those of Sloan, the tall forward passer of the visitors. Arkansas scored first in the first few minutes when Sloan tossed a pass to Raw- lings, who was run cut of bounds on the G. W. five-yard mark. After trying the line, Sloan, on the second down, crossed up the home eleven by throwing another pass which connected to Larry Benton for the first score of the game. From here on, G. W. took charge of the game, intercepting passes and com- pleting their own in the meanwhile. After a hurried kick by Arkansas, Reeves brought the ball to the Arkansas 24-yard line, where Kaufman and Turner took the ball to the 11 1 2 -yard marker. A pass worked and the score was tied. Kauf- man to Reeves was the combination. The last touchdown resulted from the passing attack, with Joe Kaufman the key man. And when the smoke passed over, G. W. was ahead, winning over the team that later won the powerful Southwest Conference title. Mud flies as G. W. and Mississippi baffle fo a fie. Page 307 TIM STAPLETON STAPLETON, REBHOLZ COTTINGHAM.

W., 7; WEST VIRGINIA, 2 The fans had something to be thankful for Thanksgiving Day, when they saw a football game that combined all the elements of good football and drama in one thrilling climax to a fine year. West Virginia came here to play this contest, and G. W. soon found that their previous press notices were not overrating the Mountaineers. West Virginia scored their only points in the first quarter when Dave Volkin, West Virginia guard, blocked Frank Merka ' s punt on the Colonial 30-yard line. Merka recov- ered the ball over the goal line for an automatic safety for the Virginians. Throughout the rest of the first half and most of the second half it appeared that these two points would win the game. However, in the last quarter, five minutes before the end of the game, Joe Kaufman tossed a short pass to Jay Turner, who took the ball 46 yards to the two-yard stripe, where Ray Hanken. called in from end, took the ball over for the winning marker, 7-2. Herb Reeves, Captain Frank Kavalier, Ray Hanken, Dale Prather, and George Jenkins ended their careers with this game. Soon afterwards Hanken was signed up by the New York Giants, professional team, and Dale Prather was signed by the new Washington professional team, the Washington Redskins.

Heavy end, if his line play reaches the peak, he should stand out. Page 3 10 Of civil) ute . RAY HANKEN In recognition of the man selected as the most valuable to his team for the 1936 football season, the Cherry Tree pauses to salute Ray Hanken, end, who was voted the O. D. K. cup. Formerly in the backfield, and only mediocre there, Ray was put at end toward the last of the 1935 season, and potentialities were seen at that time. Last year when spring training relied around, the new line coach, Barton Koch, took Ray in hand and turned cut a fine job. Possessed with a great physique, though not the most ideal for an end, Ray used all of his power to good advantage. The opposition found it very difficult to get around his end, and with Prather at tackle, that side of the line was always impregnable. Clever, Ray diagnosed plays, and was able to pile up the interfer- ence, though the play was headed at center. He was a fine blocker. The same was true cn the offense. Hanken was a good pass receiver, and was extremely fast getting down the field covering punts. He also blocked several kicks during the season. Soon after the season ended, Hanken played professional football, but his true chance will be next year, for Ray recently signed with the New York Giants. If he clicks as well professionally as he did in college, Ray will surely be as much of a success as his former teammate at G. W. and fellow teammate with the Giants, Tuffy Leemans.

BASKETBALL Again scaling to successful heights, the 1936-37 version of George Wash- ington basketball won 16 games from many of the nation’s outstanding teams while losing only four. Among those defeated by the Buff and Blue were St. Johns, of Brooklyn, West Virginia, Nebraska, Westminster, Army, and Geneva. Long Island, recognized as the East’s outstanding team, won from G. W. twice, while Loyola of Chicago and Westminster each won one. Coach Bill Reinhart took advantage of excellent material to mold this great team. Experienced Captain Hal Kiesel, Ben Goldfaden, Tom O’Brien, Milt Schonfeld, and Clarence Berg formed the nucleus of the team, and on? Sophomore, Jack Butterworth, also appeared often. The team started the season off with eight wins, their most impressive being over the highly touted Nebraska outfit and the St. John’s of Brooklyn team. The first setback was received in Madison Square Garden against Long Island, one of the few teams to defeat George Washington last year. On the same trip G. W. won over Villanova. A few days later the Colonials Page 312 won their first athletic endeavor against the United States Military Acad- emy by defeating Army, 33-29, in a game in which " Moe” Berg, normally a reserve, starred. Coming back home, the varsity won six more games before losing to Loyola of Chicago on George Washington ' s birthday. This team, which last year won the Olympic sectional tryouts for its section of the country, put on an amazing zone defense centered around its exceptionally tall center, who pos- sessed enough reach to knock the ball out of the basket, and this handicap was too much to overcome. The last quarter saw a stirring rally, but the whistle ended the game at 36-34 for the Westerners. G. W. took to the road again and lost to Westminster, 31-30, the same team the Colonials had defeated earlier by four points. The team ' s last loss was recorded March 3, when Long Island visited here and won, 28-24. Again it was the strong defense of the visitors, like Loyola, though it was a man-to-man defense, that frustrated the home team. RESULTS G.

Paqe 313 Captain Hal Kiesel dribbling •n during the L. I. U. game. G. W., 26; LONG ISLAND, 37 After winning eight straight games, the Colonials met their first Neme- sis, Long Island, at the Madison Square Garden and lost, 26-37. In the first half the game was ex- tremely close, and for the first time in a long while the Long Island Blackbirds found themselves in hot water. However, at the start of the second half, the Bee-coached team rallied and poured basket after bas- ket through the hoop to gain a con- vincing lead that lasted for the re- mainder of the game. G. W. ( 46; GENEVA, 26 In a colorful game early in Febru- ary, the Colonials gained an impres- sive victory by downing the Genev College five, 46-26. This alone might not sound so important until it L realized that several nights be- fore this game the same Geneva team defeated Long Island. The Geneva outfit took the offensive immediately, but a fighting G. V. five quickly took the ball away and went on a scoring spree of their own. As victory slipped further from their grasp, the Genevans resorted to roughness, which got them nowhere, and the final score sa % the Colonials well ahead over the team that had beaten Long Island and Duquesne. Page 3M G. W., 41; NEBRASKA, 22 Early in the season, in the first ma- jor game, the local five showed fir t signs of the greatness that was to come by defeating Nebraska, 41-22. a team which had just finished win- ning over teams of such caliber as Missouri and some of the Big Ten squads. Milt Schonfeld and Tommy O’Brien led the attack. “Mitey " Milt tossed in 12 points and played his usualh fine floor game, while Tommy scored 18 points. G. W.. 48; ST. JOHNS. 28 Capitalizing on it strong defense, the G. W. team came through with another impressive win against St. Johns of Brooklyn, 48-28, early in January. Though the Johnnies, coached b Joe Lapchick, formerly one of the Original Celtics, were noted to have one of the best offensives centered around the block play in the coun- try, the strong defense put up by G. V. kept the New Yorkers from doing much scoring. Jack Butterworth, Sophomore sensa- tion, led the scoring by hooping 17 point , most of them in the fir t half. Before the close of the first half, Butterworth scored five snowbirds in succession, while consistently getting the tap-off, enabling Kiesel, Schoj - feld, and Goldfaden to work the ball in and score. Butterworth scores two points against Long Island. D Paae 3 1 5 ri.B Farrington A t infant Couth), Noonan. Berg. Bradley, Reeves. Walker. Beach. DeAngelis. Swayze Manager ) .

RIFLE Five wins and four losses was the final result for this year ' s rifle team when the last returns were announced after George Washington ended the official season with a win over George- town. Late in March the Colonial marksmen competed in the National Rifle Association meet to determine the best teams in the country. Two wins were marked up over Georgetown in their first shoulder-to- shculder matches in 15 years. Losses were at the hands of Maryland, Navy, and the Marine Barracks. In the Middle Atlantic Intercolle- giate League, G. W. won three and lost three matches. Perhaps the most satisfying victory was that over Carnegie Tech, last year’s national champions, in the Na- tional Association meet.

Zahn did a good job, as the result , show. The Colonials started off the season by winning seven straight games, the most impressive victories being over McKinley High and the V. F. A. team. Maryland Frosh was the first team to down the yearlings, 39-29, to set the stage for att- end Bureau of Investigation, composed mainly of former high school and col- lege stars, defeated them and obtained revenge for a former defeat by the Buff and Blue. The sparkplug and captain of the team for the entire season was George Garber, forward and second onlv to Meyer Aron- son in points scored. Sid Karp also dis- played a good deal of ability, and other prospects for next year’s varsity are Max Anteles, Joe Headstream, Art N wvaskey, and C ieorge Guberskv. Charlie Lucom and Winton Bigwood completed the squad. Page 320 Kneeling: Noonan. Belaska. Jacobson. Chapelt. Prater. Kuppers. Parker. Altman. Nowaskey. Hoagland, Czajka. Quatse. Madden {Manager) .

FRESHMAN Three victories, one defeat, and one tie was the final record of the Freshman football team for 1936. The boys who will step into the shoes of the five var- sity graduates won over Western Mary- land Freshmen, Naval Training School, and Carney Point; the Cubs lost to the Navy Plebes, and tied Temple Frosh. a RESULTS G.

Though it was not a win, perhaps the best performance put up by the Freshmen was against the Temple Frosh. In this game, while the Little Colonials only tied the Owls, in view of the record of the Temple team, which hadn’t lost a game in six years, even a tie was considered a creditable feat. At that, only a 40- yard pa s enabled the visitors to make a tie of it. The loss against the Navy Plebes, score 0-19, was accounted for by the fact that the Plebes had been practicing for sev- eral months while the Frosh had just gotten started.

Kay Kneeling: Brown, Shuman, Samuel INTRAMURALS Perhaps the greatest innovation on the intramural scene last year was the addition of an intramural basketball tourney. Sponsored by the University Hatchet and approved by the athletic department, a great interest was aroused. The Law School " A” team, one of the two Law School teams, won the tournament, followed closely by Law " B” and the Engineers. Two winners were named in individual sports, as only the tennis and golf tournaments were completed. Hugh Trexel won the golf tournament, de- feating Willis Hurd in the final round, 3 and 2. F. Elwood Davis won the tennis championship by winning over James Elam. Both of these men re- ceived cups. Table tennis and badminton tournaments were started, but inability of the participants to get together caused the cancellation of the tournaments. In the intramural baseball tournament of last year, the Law School won, after playing off a three-way tie with the Medical and Engineering Schools. Page 322 ■ WOMEN ' S SPORTS RUTH H.

The Freshman party was held on September 29. The Fall Banquet was on December 2 at the Highland’s. A new award system, a point system, was adopted this year. Hood Play Day on November 14 was a great success, and the Open Evening on March 17 was attended by many, all of whom had a most enjoyable time. Page 324 HOCKEY Frances Ridgway, hockey sports man- ager, and Miss Jenny Turnbull, coach, led the hockey teams in a very successful season. This year intersec- tional games were held at the end of the season, with the Buff team win- ning top honors. Frances Alex, Mary Armstrong, Erma Cannon, Doris Dungan, Peggy Graves, Christine Herrmann, Leila Holley, Gladys Lagos, Frances Prath- er, Frances Ridgway, and Eleanor Wyvell were named on the honorary varsity. Lou Menefee, Elizabeth Brandes, and Sally Anderson were class managers. SOCCER The soccer season this year was one of the most enjoyable that soccer en- thusiasts have had. Members of classes were divided into two teams, the Buffs and the Blues, the Buffs winning the championship. From the two teams, players were chosen to form an honorary varsity team. Under Miss Helen Lawrence, instruc- tor, and Theda Hagenah, manager, the season came to a conclusion with the selection of the honorary varsity: M. Allen, M. Cline, T. Hagenah, M. J. Sutherland, J. Castell, E. Bur- nett, E. Farr, N. Goldsmith, C. Wad- den, H. Sheets, and M. Spector. Page 325 L BASKETBALL The Junior Class basketball team emerged victorious in the interclass games, defeating the Seniors by the score, 19-18, and then sending the Fresh and Sophs to defeat the next week. Miss Helen Lawrence and Miss Jen- ny Turnbull divided up the coaching job this year. Kitty Black was the manager of basketball, assisted by Peggy Graves, Eleanor Wyvell, and Barbara Harmon. The honorary varsity was as follows: Kitty Black, Erma Cannon, Jane Cas- tell, Betty Emerson, Barbara Feiker, Peggy Graves, Chris Herrmann, Lei- la Holley, Frances Prather, and El- eanor Wyvell. TENNIS Miss Dorothea Lensch taught tennis both during the fall and spring sea- sons. Allison Claflin was sports man- ager. Mary Greason, a new student in the University, won the fall tournament by defeating Allison Claflin, last year’s winner. There was a large number of participants in the tour- nament. Last spring Dorothy Roudabush man- aged tennis and was aided by Vir- ginia Siebecker, Senior; Leila Holley, Junior; Louise Erk and Gretchen Hill, Sophomore and Frosh, respec- tively. Claflin, Cook, Finkelstein, Holley, and Sze were on the varsity. Page 326 GOLF SWIMMING The West Potomac links were again the " happy hunting ground” of the G. W. women golfers this year. Dor- is Detre won the tournament last spring, overcoming a field of such players as Janice Loeb, Janice Hale, Nancy Goldsmith, and Jessie Calver. Classes were held in both the fall and spring, with Miss Jenny Turnbull in- structing. The managers for last year were as follows: Janice Loeb, sports manager; Janice Hale, Senior; Betty Hartung, Junior; Helen Bailey, Soph- omore; and Mary Beverley, the Fresh- man manager. Nancy Goldsmith managed golf this year. The Y. W. C. A. was the scene of the open swimming meet held May 19, 1936. Frances Ridgway, Doris Dungan, and Erma Cannon swam to first, second, and third places, respec- tively, and they won the awards for last season. Doris Dungan is both president of Fins, swimming club, and manager of swimming for the year 1936-37. The other officers of Fins are Jane Cas- tell, vice-president; Frances Ridgway, secretary; and Betty Burch, treas- urer. The members of the club swam twice a month. The Fins put on the spring swimming meet, held at the " Y” again this year. Page 327 ARCHERY Miss Lcnsch instructed in archery this year in both the fall and spring, and as in years past had a large follow- ing. Eleanor Pugh won the Jerry Massey cup by placing first in the fall tour- nament, despite the high winds. Bar- bara Feiker was runner-up in this tournament. Hazel Smallwood cap- tured third place, followed closely by Erma Cannon. The archers shot a Columbian round — six arrows each at 30, 40, and 45 yards. When the Goucher - Hood - G.W. Sports Day rolled around last winter, G. W. took four archers to Goucher. They came out well. DANCING Modern dance reached a new high this year under the able instruction of Miss Dorothea Lensch. The an- nual dance recital was held March 23. The dances were woven around the theme, " The American Epic.” The officers of Orchesis, the ad- vanced dance group, are: Cecilia Couch, president; vice-president, Tat- yana Jasney; and Bertha Lockhart, secretary. The group was hostess at the annual symposium to seven col- leges and universities April 10 at Pierce Hall. Following the program of dances, refreshments were served. Page 328 RIDING Miss Ruth Atwell instructed the women in the arts of horsemanship this year with a great deal of success. Laura Ellis was manager of riding. In the annual fall riding show, held November 20, Laura Ellis was judged the best rider in the advanced group. Doris Miller won the intermediate class events, while Ruth Ashburn placed first for the beginners. Evelyn Raphaelson took second honors in the beginners’ class; Harriet Palkin took second place in the intermediate group; and Nancy Willis, third. The spring show will be open to all wom- en riders in school. BADMINTON This sport is fast becoming one of the most popular sports for feminine recreation fanatics, along with shuf- fleboard and deck tennis. Miss Jenny Turnbull, instructor, and Marianna Bcrtner, as manager, saw to it that there were plenty of tournaments for everyone. For the second year a mixed doubles badminton tournament was run off in the closing days of the season, with Melva Angeline and Bob Faris doing some beautiful playing. Just to show that men aren ' t neces- sary as partners, the women had sin- gles and doubles matches. Paae 329 s $ 9 a a $ €. 4 ) C £1 C ' O Top ro» Vierling, Baker, Gilbert, Brundagc. Livingston.
