L12] OFFICERS OF ADMINISTRATION President Cloyd Heck Marvin has the loyal cooperation of an able corps of assistants in his responsible task of leadership. Charles Wendell Holmes manages the finances of the University; Harold Griffith Sutton and Fred Everett Nessel! certify and register the students; Robert Whitney Bolwell supervises the Summer Sessions; John Russell Mason makes literature available to the students; Vinnie Giffen Barrows and Daniel LeRay Borden capably fill their respective positions as Director of Women’s Personnel Guidance and Director of Health Administra- tion; and Alan Thomas Deibert advises the students from foreign countries. The ideals and unfaltering service of our President, together with the Board of Trustees, Officers of Administration, heads of colleges, schools and divisions, and the teaching staff have led to the strengthened standards and improved facilities that have made George Washington a great institution — a university true to the name of George Washington, the first great leader.

LIBRARY SCIENCE Alfred William Schmidt, A.M. Adelaide Hasse The Division of Library Science was organized in 1927 as a result of the de- velopment of courses in the Department of Library Science in Columbian College. It has as its objective the training of li- brary assistants for service in public, college, high school, special, and govern- ment libraries. ALFRED F. W. SCHMIDT Director, Division of Library Science Library experience is not credited toward graduation, but students with ade- quate professional experience may be released from the practice work required in connection with classroom instruction. THE ADVISORY SYSTEM In order that students may have opportunities not only for assistance in planning their courses of study, but also for personal, educational, and voca- tional advice in every phase of their academic work during the first two years, a number of members of the faculty serve as advisers to Junior College students. Incoming students are assigned to advisers at the time of registration and are required to consult them at least once each semester. All students, however, are encouraged to consult their advisers about college problems at any time. In this way students lay a stronger foundation upon which to complete the more specialized work which follows. f-D] Sen mm o r $ Miguel R. Aguilar Asingaw, Pangasinan, P. I. Government, A.M.

[71 ] Moot ' Court TO THE GRADUATING CLASS OF THE LAW SCHOOL: Through the courtesy of the Cherry Tree editors, I have the privilege of extending to you the greetings and felicitations of the faculty. Its mem- bers entertain high hopes for your future, and believe that when you enter the noble profession of the law you will be zealous and faithful, not only in serving the best interests of your clients, but the interests of the public as well. It is only by so doing that you will earn the rewards of a justified self-respect and the regard and esteem of the community in which you may live and serve. J. Wilmer Latimer, LL.B. [ 72 ] The Law School The Law School is fully accredited. It is a member of the Association of American Law Schools and is approved by the American Bar Association. Since 1926 it has had a chapter of the Order of the Coif, the national law school honor society equivalent to Phi Beta Kappa. The George Washington Law Review, now in its sixth year, has won wide recognition as a magazine specializing in public law. The work of the law school is on a strictly graduate basis. Only gradu- ates of approved colleges are admitted. Graduate standards of intellectual achievement are required. A doctor’s degree, Juris Doctor, is conferred on those graduates who have demonstrated the highest standards of scholar- ship and ability to do research on the Law Review board and have laid the foundation for comparative law. William C. Van Vleck, LL.B., Dean [73 j THE LAW SCHOOL MAKES HISTOBY MISS ANNA BISCHOFF Secretary to Dean Y ' an Vleck Students of The George Washington University Law School have a special interest in the musty volumes of the early United States Supreme Court Reports, for they were reported by William Cranch, Chief Judge of the Circuit Court of the District of Colum- bia from 1806 to 1855. It was under the instruction of Professor Cranch and Professor William Thomas Carroll, Cleric of the Su- preme Court of the United States (1827-’63), that the Law School was first established in 1826. The law course was discontinued in 1827. When it was resumed in 1865, it acquired the much-coveted distinction of being the first law school established in the District of Columbia, with no com- petitor until several years later. Another milestone was passed when graduate work was first offered in 1877. Older graduates remember, too, when the women first made their appearance in 1911. When the Association of American Law Schools was formed in 1900, the Law School became a charter member and has main- 1 74 ] tained membership without interruption since that time. The high scholastic requirements of the Law School were recognized by the granting, in 1926, of a chapter of the Order of the Coif, the national legal honor society. Publication of The George Washington Law Review was started in November, 1932. Since its beginning the Law School has had many locations. In 1865 it was located on the site now occupied by Columbian Building, on Fifteenth Street, Northwest. It was moved in 1884 to Fifteenth and H Streets, Northwest — where the Woodward Building now stands. Thirty-one years later, in 1915, the location was changed again, this time to the upper floors of the Masonic Temple at Thir- teenth and New York Avenue. In 1920 the school was again moved, to the former Department of Justice Building at 1435 K Street, Northwest, where it remained until Stockton Hall, its present home, was occupied five years later. Dean Roscoe Pound of the Harvard Law School journeyed to the Capital on November 14, 1925. In the presence of many other dignitaries, he delivered the principal address at the formal dedica- tion of Stockton Hall. The building was named for Rear Admiral Charles Herbert Stockton, who, after his retirement from the United States Navy, accepted the presidency of the University, serving from 1910 to 1918. Among other advantages, the build- ing contains a law library of twenty thousand volumes. Enrollment has increased steadily, to reach the present figure of over one thousand students. From time to time the requirements have been raised. In 1865 classes met for one hour three evenings a week and the degree was conferred after two years of study. The undergraduate course was increased to three years in 1898. The movement continued until the Law School became a strictly graduate school in 1937, a degree now being required for admittance.

As a result of its rushing activities, fourteen neophytes were in- itiated on December 11, 1937, and seven pledges were carried over to the spring initiation. The regular monthly meetings were supplemented by spe- cial meetings, formal dances and smokers. During the year several prominent men from Government Departments addressed the Chapter and their guests. During the fall of 1937, the Chapter adopted a revised set of by-laws, setting forth more clearly the purposes of the Fraternity, outlining the functions and duties of the officers and setting up qualifications for membership.

As in previous letters to graduating classes from the School of Medicine, I feel that what is said here should be of some significance. In past years I have emphasized opportunities for service, for the cultural things outside the field of medicine, the high ideals of the medical profession — integrity, honesty — and have urged our gradu- ates in medicine to make some contribution to the scientific knowledge of the profession. Other subjects have also been discussed on this page. To you graduates of 1938 I wish to present a subject, or rather a con- cept, concerning the physician in the national scheme of things, particularly for the future. During your four years in the School of Medicine you have heard much regarding medical service for the people of this Nation. At times names have been applied to this subject which, to most of us in the profession, are as an anathema. It may be safely predicted that you younger physicians will hear more of these terms and their philosophy in the future. Probably you will have to make some decisions with regard to the future of medicine in this Nation. As you view the problems involved, we hope that you will approach them with an open mind just as you have been taught to do in the experimental approach to problems in biochemistry, physiology, bacteriology, and other sciences in your medical course. You would not merely look at a patient and decide upon the diagnosis without taking a history and doing a complete physical examination. In addition you might wish certain laboratory data to correlate with this examination. Only then would you be willing to give an opinion concerning the diagnosis of his ailment and to recommend treatment. This is the scientific method of ap- proach, and all of your medical training has been based upon it. And so it is with this National problem which faces the medical profession today. As in the diagnosis of disease, you should not be willing to accept what other people say without examining the evidence yourself. Certainly you would not dare to suggest " therapy” unless you know all you can learn concerning the problem presented. [ 94 ] If the foregoing is reasonable and logical, then, as a medical economist or sociologist, you will maintain an open mind in the face of the " signs” and " symptoms” of the " patient,” and starting without bias or prejudice you will proceed to take a " history” and make a thorough examination of the " patient” (in this case the problem of medical care). Having done this you will come to a conclusion and decide for yourself what you think is the solution of the problem. The thought I am leading up to is this: Think for yourself! But in doing so be as intelligent about it as is possible. Nothing is to be gained in blindly following anybody in anything. In doing this one often follows false ideals. No individual has a monopoly on thinking, and no individual has the last word on anything. Modern leaders in all walks of life, in the face of the world’s knowledge, are at best rather insignificant and self- limited. Rarely does a truly gifted leader appear in any field, and often we do not recognize him as such until long after he is dead. There is a growing feeling in this country that the individual is entitled to the pursuit of health and happiness. We have heard a great deal about the external defense of the nation, and huge sums of money have been ap- propriated for it. Only now are we beginning to hear about the internal defense of the country against the natural enemies of disease, poverty and ignorance. Great appropriations of funds have already been made for the purpose of social security, and larger ones will probably be made in the future. Some of these will be made for health. This is where you come into the problem. If you are wise, generous, open-minded and scientific in your thinking of this problem, you can make sure that whatever is done will be for the best interests of the people and for the pr ofessional service which you devote to them as physicians. This is your responsibility. If you always keep in mind that sickness does not exist for the doctor but that the physician exists because of illness, and if you apply the scientific methods of thinking to the problem as you have been trained to do in our profession, then you should solve this question rightly and justly. Your Faculty joins me in extending to you our congratulations and all of our good wishes for a most successful future as Doctors of Medicine. Earl Baldwin McKinley, M.D., Dean [95 1 The Drama Unfolds: The past four years may well be likened to a great play in the making. Such dramas do not often include so many themes, widely diversified, yet held together by a common bond. This bond is so strong that we have given up many years of youthful freedom to accomplish our ideals. In reviewing the strenuous years of our medical preparation we cannot help but recall many interesting hours, some amusing, some enlightening, some filled with conflicts and some spent within the confines of our inner selves. The opening lines of the first act were short, perhaps a bit shocking, as they brought us to a stern reality. " Dr. Jenkins will meet the Freshman Class at one o’clock in the anatomy laboratory, top floor, other classes will meet to- morrow.” At one o’clock " Pop” sent us scurrying out to get the latest " bibles,” tossed to each student a clavicle with the nonchalance of a zoo keeper tossing fish to seals, and then the mad rush was on. Days passed very slowly and the gruelling routine and monotony were such that many of us would have for- saken medicine for other fields of endeavor had it not been for the kindly counsel of Dr. Jenkin;, whose scholarly teaching and philosophical advice did much to carry us through many trying periods of indecision. Each day now was a rehearsal; quizzes in the morning in history, embryology and neuro-an- atomy, quizzes in the afternoon in anatomy. We were learning our lines well but we lacked confidence. However, surprisingly few of us became lost in the maze of intricacies of the human body. The scene changed rapidly and we ventured from the haven of inexperienced Freshmen to other floors of our playhouse to learn new lines for Act I, Scene II. There were many new lines to learn in bacteriology, biochemistry, and physiology with its maze of circles and plus-minuses. Then a glimpse of the third and fourth acts to stir up our interest and keep up our spirits at the medical and surgical clinics — remember the jaundiced man. The fellow actors in our drama had by this time become familiar to each of us and, according to precedent, the lordly Sophomore class officers advised, in no uncertain terms, that the class should be organized. Bill Manning was elected president and ably acted as our spokesman for Act I. The curtain fell quickly on the first act with many more written examinations than most of us thought we could ever survive. The second act moved quickly with physiology presented before large smoked drums, frogs, turtles, cats, dogs and weird apparatus ever which many patient hours were spent. Dr. Choisser’s excellent course in pathology was a bright spot which we remember well. In Dr. DuVigneaud’s " lab” the gag reflex was well demonstrated as we attempted to swallow innocent looking stomach tubes. Dr. Roth led us through the numerous problems of pharmacology in a well systematized lab course and introduced us to the art of prescription writing which so characteristically identified the older school of practitioners. Hall C [ 96 ] was an interesting spot when Dr. Conklin showed us, very successfully, too, how little we knew about physical diagnosis and the founders of the art. The honor of acting as president of this class went to Wolcott Etienne in the second act. The third act curtain rose on an entirely new and, we must say, welcome setting. Here we saw dispensary benches and waiting patients. In the exam- ination booths we became " doctors” and began to learn the true art of medicine. Lectures in medicine, surgery, " ob,” " gym,” dermatology and other subjects, you well recall, kept us busy indeed taking notes. " Derm.” brings to mind Luden’s cough drops. Dr. Simpson’s reception for the class at his home was a very pleasant interlude. Our president this year was Louis Mendel. The third act drew to a close as many of us sought out small parts to play during the summer months, from Mayo clinic to camp doctors. Act IV was opened and senior year began as our actors and actresses gathered for the last time. We now actually felt that we knew a great deal more than any of the poor underclassmen and perhaps we could not help show- ing it. Sam Sugar was elected to carry on as president. We were now permitted on the wards and assigned to cases. The importance of this year was immedi- ately apparent because many decisions affecting our future course in the field of medicine had to be made. We pondered over selecting specialties in order that we might more intelligently choose interneships which would afford suitable training in them. By late November most of our applications had been sub- m itted to the various hospitals. Interminable days of suspense and anxiety fol- lowed. Eventually, however, a long face or a beaming countenance, as the case might be, indicated the reception of a letter or telegram. These past four acts have probably been the most illuminating and the most informative in the realm of human experience, and the effort, though great, is justified by the satisfaction of attainment which promises a fruitful reward. As we depart it is with great pleasure that we extend our deep appreciation to those whose 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.

The purpose of the sorority is to aid and encourage students of geology in their work and to continue and promote friendly relationships among the women interested in geology after they have left the University. An anniversary dinner in June, 1937, at the Anchorage celebrated six years’ activity of the Epsilon Chapter of Chi Upsilon. In February a valentine party was given and thirteen students from the University were entertained by Dan Cupid and humorously tested on their knowledge of geology. Business meetings are held once a month during the school year and are followed by a social hour and refreshments. The sorority sponsors lectures at the University of geology or on allied sciences, to which all students interested in geology are invited, and has field trips and picnics for the purpose of hunting fossils. The members of the sorority were invited to attend the luncheon at the American Association of University Women’s Clubs given for the ladies who attended the conven- tion of the Geological Society of America, held in Washington, D. C., the last week in December, 1937. Miss Florence Bascom, dean of women geologists as a profession, was the principal speaker. Members were also privileged to attend the reception at the White House, the reception at the Mexican Embassy and the Pick and Hammer show, “I’d Rather Be Bright,” staged by the Geological Society of Washington for the enter- tainment of those attending the convention. t 194 ] Back row: Edmunds.

The advancement of women in educational work has been for many years one of the principal objectives of the Columbian Women. A substantial scholarship fund has been built up from life membership dues and a large number of scholarships have been granted to women students in the University. The organization has always maintained close contact with the University Administra- tion and gives its full support to the promotion of all interests of the University. The following are eligible for active membership: Any woman who for one year has been a regularly registered student in the University, provided she shall have received credit for thirty hours of work; any woman member of the Faculties, Council, or Board of Trustees; any woman on the Administrative Staff; the wife or recognized head of the household of any member of the Faculties, Council, Board of Trustees, or the Administrative Staff; and any woman recipient of an honorary degree from the University. Graduate women students and wives of graduate men students are eligible for associate membership, having all privileges and obligations of membership except those of voting and holding office. I 202 1 THE GENERAL ALUMNI ASSOCIATION To the Class of 1938, the General Alumni Asso- ciation extends greetings aiu j a W arm invitation to join in the work of the Association for the future of the University and the strengthening of personal ties among its graduates. A continuing interest in the University should he a part of the heritage of every graduate, and the alumni organizations are the channels which give direction and expression to this interest. They are a means through which alumni and ex-students may join in extending and increasing the investment which their years at the University have given them. Alumni Clubs located in various government de- partments and in cities throughout the country and abroad, afford the graduate direct contact with other alumni and are often of personal benefit to the young alumnus establishing himself in a new location. Professional Groups — Law, Medicine, Library Science, Engineering — tend to bring together member of the same profession with resulting benefit to the professional schools of the University and to themselves.

Nancy Hutchison Hannah (a servant ) Virginia Kibler Aunt Ellen Bettv Green George Washington University’s only dramatic club, Cue and Curtain, opened its 1 937-38 season with very high hopes of making it a banner year and one unequaled in the past. The fall production, staged December 3 and 4 in Wardman Park Theater, under the direction of Marvin Beers, while not very well attended by the student body, was nevertheless a fine attempt toward real dramatic art. Critics in the local papers gave the club many complimentary remarks in their reviews. The play, by Lennox Robinson, centered around the pampered youngest son of Mrs. Geoghegan, Dennis, whose every act of life was decided for him by his family. He was destined “by fate” to be a medic and was sent up to Dublin for the necessary preparation. While in school, “the whiteheaded boy,” who was draining the family coffers, paid little or no attention to his objective and repeatedly failed his medical board ex- aminations. The sacrifices made by the other members of the family in order to keep him in school were just about exhausted and unending difficulties arose. Finally Dennis decided he should take his future in his own hands and have no more of the family dictators. His decision led to further complications with his fiancee and her father. As a result of the pressure brought to bear on him he eloped with Delia and took a job working on the roads. At last on his own, he dismissed his past life of “drudgery” from his mind and looked happily into the future with his bride. [ 207 ] Men ' s Glee Club Rorfri II.

[ 212 ] CHRISTIAN SCIENCE ORGANIZATION " Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.” Proverbs 4:7. Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, pro- vided in the Manual of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, that students and faculty members in col- leges and universities may form Christian Science Organizations, if the rules of the university permit. The Christian Science Organization at The George Washington University, founded in the fall of 1931, is one of sixty-one similar organizations located throughout the world and established under this provision. The purpose of the Organization is to aid University students in obtaining a more comprehensive understanding of education and service, a greater spiritual development and a life consecrated through the study and application of this Science in all branches of University activities. Regular meetings are held at 8:10 P.M., in Columbian House, the first and third Thursdays of each month during the school year. The annual reception to w hich all students and faculty members interested in Christian Science are invited, was held in November. Major Charles Christenbury, formerly one of the faculty at Columbia University, spoke on the application of Christian Science to university life. Mr. Gavin W. Allan, C.S.B., member of the Board of Lectureship of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, delivered a lecture entitled " Christian Science — The Science of Government,” on February 11, 1938, in Corcoran Hall. There are available in the University library authorized books and period- icals on Christian Science including the international daily newspaper — The Christian Science Monitor .

Senator Elbert D. Thomas presided. Teams from Cornell, Puerto Rico, Vir- ginia, and George Washington debated the question of " American Foreign Policy with Respect to Neutrality and War.” Audience questioning and dis- cussion followed the speaking. Other outstanding debates were those held with the English team from Oxford and Cambridge, and the teams from the University of Melbourne and the University of Pennsylvania. Two radio debates were given with the Columbian University team over station WNCA in New York City and with the Swarthmore College team over station WIP in Philadelphia. An unusual honor for the team was the publishing of the Princeton Debate in " The University Debaters Annual for 1938-39” and of the Debate Sym- posium, in full, in the " Yearbook of College Debating for 1938-39.” Members of the debate team were: George Pughe, John Dootson, Wayne Kniffen, John Southmayd, George Sheva, Wendell Anderson, and Charles Corker. WOMEN ' S DEBATE Several trips were taken this year by the Women’s Debate Team — one to the Model Senate at Colgate University where Betty Green was elected president of the Senate for next year, and one to Randolph-Macon. Besides these debates other opponents included teams from Pittsburgh, Co- lumbus, West Virginia and Maryland Universities and Trinity and William Jewell Colleges. Members of the debate team were: Evelyn Morris, Betty Green, Dorothy Ames, Mildred Vierling, Marjorie Lipske, Mary Norman West, and Phoebe Beall. The question used was: Resolved that the National Labor Relations Board Should Be Empowered to Enforce Arbitration of All Industrial Dis- putes. FBESHMAN DEBATE Important debates for the Freshman Debate Team included those against Western High School, American University, and the Y. M. C. A. Freshmen who participated in the debates were: Roye Lowry, Elsie Carper, Irwin Nathanson, Michael McKool, James Klaassi, Irma Naiman, and Florence Haves. Effective next year will be the new student debating organizations which will wor k with the Public Speaking Department through the student managers of Men’s, Women’s, and Freshman Debate.

However, it grew steadily in size and improvement until in 1905 it had become an imposing leather-bound volume of 360 pages called " The Mall.” Three years later it assumed its present name of " The Cherry Tree.” Successive staffs of " The Cherry Tree” have attempted to make it an interesting and reliable chronicle of the student life and activities at the University. The book is distributed the first week in May. £ 222 ] JUNIOR STAFF Top row: Barnard. Heilman, Livingston. Spector, Spaulding. Hill. Second row: McCabe, Merz, Roller. Ames, Black. Morin.

Extra-journalistically, The Hatchet ' s work included presentation, in coopera- tion with the Symphony Club, of a series of summer symphonic programs known as the " Yard Concerts” which drew a large portion of the Summer Sessions students into attendance; publication twice during the fall semester, in coopera- tion with the Literary Club, of a page of literary and critical contributions under the title of " First Editions;” formation of the photographic club, Lens and Shutter, and sponsorship of its first contest and exhibition; co-sponsorship with the Student Council of the annual Christmas Food Drive; inauguration of a national college campaign against syphilis as the result of a successful campaign conducted here by The Hatchet , the Lester F.

Soft blue lights, a good swing band under the direction of Bill McCallum, clever murals by Jack Shulman, spotless white tablecloths, and uniformed waiters provided the proper atmos- phere. An all-student review, featuring dramatic skits, crooners, and tap dancers, was the climax of one of the most important so- cial events of the year. The review was directed by Leonard Lieb- erman, production manager. Jay Samuel was director of the ven- ture, and Vincent De Anglis served as manager. The opening of the " Buff and Blue Room” set a prece- dent in the entertainment field and attracted nation-wide attention. The function was sponsored by the Student Club and the Student Council, and repeated its initial success on numerous other eve- nings during the year. [ 232 ] HUGH H. CLEGG Hundreds of students and alumni danced at the Home- coming Ball, held at the Willard Hotel on Saturday, October 13, to celebrate the fifth annual Homecoming Week of the Univer- sity. Carlton Edwards’ 12-piece orchestra furnished the music. Colored spotlights flickered through the crowd or focused attention on the fraternity and sorority banners which decorated the ballroom. During the evening a new University song, " The G. W. Swing,” written by Chet Hogentogler, was introduced and achieved instant popularity. At intermission a cup for the most cleverly decorated house on campus was presented to Kappa Sigma Fra- ternity by Betty Hutto, University Sweetheart. Patrons and patronesses for the dance, headed by Pres- ident and Mrs. Cloyd Heck Marvin, included many prominent diplomats, alumni, and University officials. Lester Smith, alumni secretary, was in charge of arrangements for the dance. [ 233 ] HOW ARD MACE ALLsUNIVERSITY PROM Inaugurating a new note in University social life, the student Council sponsored an All-University Prom at the Willard Hotel on December 17. Joe Haymes, nationally known recording artist, was featured, with Honey Burns, vocalist. The Presidents of all campus organizations participated in the Grand March, led by Betty Hutto, University Sweetheart, and Austin Beall. Many outstanding campus leaders and their dates were sin- gled out by the spotlight. Thirteen of the prominent activity men were tapped by O. D. K., honorary activities fraternity. The dance, under the supervision of Howard Mace, Social Chairman of the Student Council, and Jack Shulman, was un- usual in that it afforded an opportunity for all University stu- dents to gather together at a major social function. [ 234 J BILL WRIGHT INTERFRATERNITY PLEDGE PROM An important evening in the life of every pledge was the 1938 Interfraternity Pledge Prom, held at the Raleigh Hotel on January 18. In spite of impending final examinations, many fraternity men and their dates took advantage of the delightful " swing” tunes provided by the Baltimore Townsmen. Justina Brown, escorted by Cal Courtney, president of the Interfraternity Pledge Council, and Jule Wilson, who accom- panied Bill Wright, social chairman of the Council, led the grand march. Pledge delegates who took part in the grand march presented orchids to their dates as it began. An " interfraternity no-break dance” was a feature of the evening. As each fraternity song was played only members of the designated fraternity and their dates participated. Another ever- popular feature was a " spot-dance,” which was won by Jane Fleig and Tom Britt. Decorated appropriately with fraternity and sorority banners, the tenth-floor ballroom was a colorful setting for one of the most successful dances of the year. [ 235 ] peggy McMillan JUNIOR PANsHELLENIC PROM The Kennedy-Warren Hotel on February 11 was the scene of a history-making event when the Junior Pan-Hellenic As- sociation sponsored a formal dance for the first time in recent years. Syncopation was provided by Carlton Edwards and his band of University men. Sorority banners were selected as the only decorations. Peggy McMillan was in charge of arrangements for the Prom and was assisted by Jule Wilson and Florence Haves. The grand march included the presidents of sorority pledge groups and delegates to the Junior Pan-Hellenic Association, and was led by Nancy Gatch, president of the Association, and Peggy McMillan, social chairman, and their dates. A " spot-dance” was won by Patsy Mayfield and Don Wil- burn. Corsages of roses, orchids, and gardenias completed the requirements for a really successful evening. [ 236 ] JACK BEANE ENGINEERS ' BALL The annual Engineers’ Ball was held on Feb- ruary 19 at the ballroom of the Kennedy-Warren Hotel. The music for the evening was provided by Dave Mc- Williams and his orchestra. A large number of alumni were present for the occasion. Dean Lapham and Professor Ames were among the patrons. The usual grand march was replaced by a floor show, featuring Bob Mahoney of the Patsy Kelly Studio. The orchestra entertained with a number of Hawaiian selections. The dance was sponsored by the Engineers’ Council, and was under the supervision of Jack Beane, social chairman. C 237 1 HOWARD WALKINGSTICK INTERFRATERNITY PROM Shadows cast by multi-colored reflections from a re- volving crystal ball, snatches from well-known fraternity songs, and Russ Morgan’s music all mingle pleasantly in the memories of the 1938 Interfraternity Prom held on March 4 from 10 to 2 at the Willard Hotel. Each fraternity was assigned a box decorated with its banner. The grand march, in which each president, social chair- man, and council delegate participated, was led by Cap Gardner, president of the Interfraternity Council, and Miss Sue Fisher; and Howard Walkingstick, social chairman, and Miss Wanda Sarnecki. During intermission cups were awarded to the winners of intramural sports and to Tommy O’Brien, winner of the Gate and Key cup for the most outstanding University basketball player. Jack Brown received the bowling sweepstakes cup. Twenty-five outstanding fraternity leaders were tapped by Gate and Key, honorary organization for fraternity men. Among the patrons and patronesses for the evening were Pres- ident and Mrs. Cloyd H. Marvin, Dr. and Mrs. Steuart H. Britt, Dean and Mrs. Elmer Louis Kayser, Dr. and Mrs. Wood Gray, and Mr. and Mrs. DeWitt Bennett. t 238 ] JANE SAEGMULLER PANsHELLENIC PMOM Formally opening the spring season, the Pan-Hellenic Prom was held on April 6, at the Willard Hotel. Don Bestor and his famous orchestra, featuring Neil Buckley, supplied the music. At midnight Eleanor Livingston, past president of the Pan-Hellenic Council and Jane Saegmuller, social chairman, with their escorts led the grand march, which closely resembled a spring fashion parade. The presidents, pledge presidents, and Pan- Hellenic delegates of all sororities participated. Cups were presented to the winners of intramural con- tests between sororities by Mary Jane Livingston, president of the Pan-Hellenic Council. During the evening eight girls were tapped by Delphi, honorary activities sorority. Dean and Mrs. Robert Whitney Bolwell, Dr. and Mrs. Wood Gray, Mr. and Mrs. DeWitt Bennett, and Mr. and Mrs. Newton E. Buckley acted as chaperones for the evening. [ 239 ] On Friday, February 25, the Freshman and Sophomore Clubs and the Junior Council sponsored the first closed class prom to be given at the Univer- sity since the class organizations were discontinued in 1935. Music was provided by Carlton Edwards and his orchestra in the Rose Room of the Washington Ho- tel. The climax of the evening was the presentation of awards to the four outstanding members of the Sophomore Class. Mary Lou Nash, Julia Evans, Howard Mace, and Allan Rothenberg were selected by the faculty members of the Student Life Commit- tee to receive the awards. Irwin Nathanson was in charge of arrangements for the Prom, the success of which will undoubtedly lead to future class dances. [ 240 ] Incoming Freshmen were well entertained at two Freshman Mixers sponsored by the Sophomore Club and the Junior College Council. The dance given by the Sophomores was held on Tuesday, Septem- ber 21, in the Student Club. New students wore tags bearing their names. Outstanding activity leaders and many faculty mem- bers were introduced during the evening. President Cloyd H. Marvin welcomed the Freshmen. The annual Freshman Mixer sponsored by the Junior College Council was held on October 8, from 10:30 to 1:30 in the Student Club, following the West Virginia football game. Paper footballs bear- ing the names of varsity football players decorated the room. Representatives of activities served as a floor com- mittee to see that the new students became acquainted with their fellow classmates and upper classmen and enjoyed their first all-university social function. t 241 ] a t h e JAMES EBENEZER PIXLEE DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS The Coaching Staff Headed by Athletic Director James Pixlee, the coaching staff of the University boasts a personnel equal to that of the leading universities in the East. Due to his ill health following the close of the gridiron season, Coach Pixlee was granted a leave of absence from the University for a year, and upon his return will act as coordinator between the various branches of the athletic department and the administration. In connection with this change, Max Farrington was named head of the athletic department, while Coach Hill Reinhart was advanced to the position of head football coach. “Botchy” Koch, one of the finest line coaches in the nation, remains as bead line coach. Additional members of the football coaching staff are Tim Moynihan, assistant coach, formerly of Notre Dame; and Jean Sexton, head Frosh coach. Coach of the great court team is Bill Reinhart, wbo learned and played his college football and basketball at Oregon University. Arthur “Otts” Zahn, former court star here, leads the undefeated Frosh basketball five. William Meyers and Bernie Phillips also serve the University in coaching capacities, leading the activities in intramurals, with Meyers also serving as major-domo of the Varsity House. Rounding out the staff is Johnny Busick, newly appointed director of sport publicity, who turned in a fine piece of work during bis first year in that difficult position. His ingenuity was the force making possible the colorful activities between halves at the football and basketball games. Johnny is a graduate of the University and a former Sports Editor of the Hatchet. [ 245 ] (Coaches William Reinhart Max Farrington Arthur Zahn Bernard Phillips Jean Sexton John Busick William Myers Barty Koch [ 246 ] THE ANAGERIAL SYSTEM 1 he l niversity athletic managerial system is headed by the Senior manager of athletics, who co- ordinates the work of the undergraduate managers of all the various sports. Under the Senior manager are the Junior managers of football, basketball, and minor sports. The Sophomore managers are appointed to help the Junior managers and to manage the Freshman teams. To enable them to gain experience, Freshmen are appointed by the athletic department to assist the other managers, for they are the men upon whose shoulders will fall the more important duties in the future, and one of them will later be elected to the important post of Senior manager. Promotions on the staff are based upon the merit system, whereby experience and ability furnish grounds for advancement. The Senior manager and the Junior manager, in cooperation with Max Farrington, head of the athletic depart- ment, elect the next Senior manager before the close of each school year. The manager of football was Allen Rothenberg; Junior manager of basketball, Arthur Kleinman; and the Freshman manager of basketball was Harry Arnest. 1 he managers of the varsity teams receive lettered sweaters, and the managers of the Freshman teams receive sweaters with numerals. ALLEN ROTHENBERG BOB WALKER SAMMY WALKER Head Cheerleader DON THOMAS [ 247 ] F OOTBALL Fighting spirit characterized the Colonial gridsters this year. The Buffmen came roaring back from training camp full of steam, appar- ently ready for the tough season they had to face. However, things didn’t go so well; trouble dogged their every step. But in spite of adverse conditions the team kept fighting to the bitter end. In struggles with eight worthy opponents, George Washington emerged victorious on three occasions. The season started off favorably for George Washington when Wake Forest was defeated to the tune of 34 to 6. The Buffmen played a good game, but they lacked the click they failed to find during the rest of the PETE YURWITZ Ailing Captain season. The successful start of the season was followed by a victory of 18 to 13 over a mediocre West Virginia Wesleyan eleven. It was in this game that Sampson began to show his stellar qualities as a halfback. Then along came the Crimson Tide from Alabama to upset the apple cart for the first time by drenching the colonials, 19-0. " Razzle-dazzle” Tulsa failed to dazzle anyone greatly when they barely managed to eke out a victory of 14 to 13 in one of the best games of the season. The Colonials showed unfulfilled promise in this game. r 248 3 Ole Miss flew into town, exhibited her power, and a bag full of tricks, and flew home with a 27 to 6 victory under her wing. The Colonial eleven made the annual Homecoming a very successful event when they put the North Dakota Bisons through the mill, grinding out a 33 to 0 score. Invading the Midwest, the Colonials surprised all football fans by hold- ing Arkansas to a scoreless tie. This game showed what might have hap- pened throughout the year if the Buffmen had had a few breaks. The final tragedy and the heartrending defeat of the year was handed to the Colonials by West Virginia in the last game of the season. The result was 26 to 0 for West Virginia. Outstanding men of this year’s team were: Sampson, Turner, Yurwitz, Weinberg, Schiering, Tihila, Renzaglia, B. Nowasky, Canning, Merka, Berry, Hallberg, Stapleton, Kaufman.

W 0; West Virginia 26 [ 249 1 Keahey Turner Sampson Berry Wake Forest Game Opening the 1937 campaign against a foe that has always been considered among the toughest, the Colonials gave hopes of being one of the finest teams in the history of football at the University by trouncing the Deacons of Wake Forest College, 34-6. Playing before 14,262 ardent (?) fans, the Huff and Blue men turned on the heat early in the contest and scored on a blocked punt and a 35-yard run by Lloyd Berry, end. From that point on the Colonials could not be stopped, or rather Vic Sampson could not. From the Deacon 15-yard line, Vic, in his first play of the game, dashed over the goal line for the second score. From that point on, the coaches substituted freely, using a total of 23 players in an effort to secure a winning combination for the tough games to follow. West Virginia Wesleyan Game In the second game of the season, played on October 8 at Griffith Stadium, the Colo- nial " made it two victories in a row, but had a heap of trouble in subduing the West Virginia Wesleyan eleven for the honor, winning by an 18-13 score. Some 10,000 fans gathered to see a very ragged, misdirected eleven almost defeated In a greatly inferior Mountaineer team, but again it was Vic Sampson who saved the day, both from the standpoint of victory and from the viewpoint of the fans. Flashing brilliance in only three instances, the Colonials managed to capitalize upon those instances and chalk up three touchdowns. The first score came as the result of a beautiful 60-yard touchdown run by Sampson, and the second came after an end run by Sampson following his 30-yard pass to Bruce Mahan. Jay Turner, one of tire finest defensive men on the team, accounted for the other score, marking up a six- pointer on the famed sleeper play. He successfully escaped the eyes of the Bobcats and nabbed a pass for a touchdown without a hand being laid upon him. The two Wesleyan scores were the results of breaks. Joey Kaufman fumbled a punt by Coleman of the ’Cats on the Colonial 20-yard line, from where they scored via the air. The second touchdown was scored following Ciccione’s blocking of Biff Borden’s punt on the i-foot line. Mackey scored from the i-foot line on an end run. Alabama Game Supposedly benefitting by a rest of two weeks, the Colonials entered the game with Alabama pepped up for a victory which would bring with it national fame and honor. They made a noble attempt, but failed bef ore 25,000 fans, the Tide of Crimson annex- ing a 19-0 victory. [ 250 ] Faris Tihila VIC SAMPSON If there was any individual great on this year’s team, Vic is the man. This diminutive quarterback led his team well, carried the ball farthest and most for the Buff, made himself the man to get in every Colonial game. The only G. W. player to make the All-District team this year, Vic will be back next year, rarin’ to go. LLOYD BERRY Berry, one of the finest ends ever devel- oped by the Colonials, played probably the most consistent game of any of Koch’s linemen. A star on defense, fast, ag- gressive and smart, Berry filled the shoes of graduate Ray Hanken in a most ad- mirable fashion. DUCE KEAHEY This Texas product, a newcomer to the squad, filled one of the tackle posts left vacant by the graduation of last year’s tackles, anil turned in some valuable work, being a vicious tackier and as tough as they come. JAY TURNER Probably the most spirited player on the team, Jay was a star on defense, as well as the best line plunger on the squad. A Junior fullback, Jay starred in every game for the Colonials, performing well in even the worst defeats the Colonials suffered. BOB FARIS A Junior this year, although he played only short portions of the majority of the Colonial games, Bob clearly stamped himself as a pass catcher de luxe. His touchdown against Mississippi as a re- sult of a spectacular catch was the bright spot of the season. HOWARD TIHILA A Senior blocking back, who could al- ways be depended upon in a pinch. A bard blocker and one of the best tacklers on the squad, “Nig” will be sorely missed next fall. Jay Turner Lloyd Berry [251 ] Merka Canning Stapleton Cottingham Although they played a superior brand of ball than at any other time in the entire season, the Huff were simply outclassed and did not have a chance against the Tide. Only once did the Pixleemen have an opportunity to push over a score, and that was the occasion on which they reached the ’Hama 22-yard line in the fourth quarter. The Tide’s attack was all that advance reports heralded it as being, with Joe Kilgrow, Hughes and Holm running true to form and with her line one of the finest ever to walk upon the sod of Griffith Stadium. The first score came as the result of a fine pass from Kilgrow to Perron Shoemaker, right end. Shoey grabbed the aerial on the Colonial 7 and scored standing up. The second Crimson score followed shortly with the boys from the South carrying the ball from the Colonial 32 down to the 7, where they made it first and goal to go. After the Huff had been penalized five yards to the 2-yard stripe, it was child’s play for Kilgrow to score on a line plunge. The final score for the visitors came when Charlie Holm intercepted Sampson’s pass on the Colonial 31. Holm, who starred throughout the battle, galloped to the goal line untouched by human hands. Tulsa Game A freak play, a bitter defeat, and a whale of a battle accurately describe the game with Tulsa 1 niversity’s Golden Hurricane. T he Colonials were the victims of the evening and dropped a bitter battle by a score of 14-13 before 12,000 fans at Griffith Stadium on the evening of October 29. For three full quarters the Colonials clearly outplayed thre gentlemen from the Southwest and entered the final chapter of the game with a margin that should have spelled victory, for they then enjoyed the long end of a 13-7 count. Substitute Quarterback McClune of the visitors made it a bad night when he scored quite unexpectedly and unorthodoxically on one of the many passes that his teammate Tommy Thompson tossed during the course of the evening. The ball, de- flected by Bruce Mahan, flew into the arms of McClune, who stepped across the goal line for the score; and victory came when Lineman Charlie Johnson added the extra point on a place kick. 1 he Colonials who deserved credit for their fine showing were Ends Pete Yurwitz and Lloyd Berry, Hacks Sampson and Turner, and Tackle Johnny Rebholz. Mississippi Game Still smarting under the 0-0 tie handed them last year by the Colonials, Ole Miss put on an exhibition of power and deception, the like of which was never seen on the local collegiate gridiron and trounced the Colonial Buffmen 27-6. Except in the early moments of the second quarter when Reinhart’s charges dominated the game and in [ 252 ] Schiering Richardson TIM STAPLETON The “watch fob” center of the squad, Tim makes up for his lack of weight and height by his superior and stellar per- formance. Tim saw an unexpected amount of service at the center post this year due to the injury of Harringer, and acquitted himself very nobly, much to the gratification of the coaches. TED COTTINGHAM Another of the Seniors on the team, Ted showed marked improvement this year, starring in his ability to diagnose plays and for his aggressive work at the guard post. Ted will be sorely missed next year. FRANK MERKA This Junior halfback saw considerable action this year, due largely to his ball- carrying ability and his rank as the best all-around kicker on the squad. A smart runner, Frank could always be trusted to kick the ball far and wide in the tightest of spots. A valuable blocker as well, he was a distinct aid to the back- field cause. BOB CANNING Place-kicker of the team, Bob’s post is a tackle spot. A Senior next season, he should reach the high point of his career with the Buff. His chief bid for fame is by virtue of his educated toe, which can always be depended upon for extra- point efforts, punts and kickoffs. HAROLD SCHIERING Hal was the revelation on the line this year, seeing action practically 60 minutes of every game. His fine play along with that of the other guard, Renzaglia, gave the Colonials as fine a pair of guards as the Colonials have had in many years. BILLY RICHARDSON Billy, the only D. C. product on the team, played at quarterback in several of the games this year, and showed great possibilities, despite his size. A triple- threat man, Richardson should be an in- tegral part of next year’s backfield com- bination. Frank Merka Billy Richardson and Bob Canning [253 ] Holt Weinberg Kaufman Renzaglia the third quarter when Vic Sampson put on a one-man show and passed to Faris to score the only touchdown for the Colonials, the Rebels had pretty much their own way with things. Starting the scoring assault early in the game, Hall intercepted a pass on the Buff and Blue 38 and behind perfect interference scored the initial touchdown for the Rebels. The Rebels did not stop with one touchdown, and the waning minutes of the fi r t quarter saw Ray Hapes break away on the Colonial 22-yard stripe and carry the ball to the 5-yard marker. Lenhardt carried the ball over on two trys for the second score of the game. Even in the fast company of Hapes, Kinard, White, and Bilbo, Mississippi greats, it was our own Vic Sampson who provided the thrills. In the second quarter, Vic made the longest run of the game, ending 45 yards from where he started, but a 15-yard penalty on the next play put the Buffmen back in the shadow of their own goal posts. From here the Rebels held the Colonials and in fiv e plays had blasted their way across the goal line on a pass labeled “touchdown” from Hall to Kinard. Sampson again broke out with some spectacular playing in the third quarter which eventually ended up with a 6 on the scoreboard for the Colonials. A quick kick by Vic caught the RebeU unawares and a beautiful piece of broken field running uncorked by Sampson brought the ball down to within scoring distance, and a pass from Vic to Bob Faris put over the score. The Rebels came right back and capitalized on an intercepted pass to score again before the final gun sounded, leaving the Colonials with their worst drubbing in two yea rs. North Dakota State Game Playing as a part of the annual Homecoming celebration, the Colonials came through in a style properly adapted to the pleading of old grads, and marched serenely over a weak Nodak team to a 33-0 victory before the eyes of 9,000 supporters. Held to a single score in the first half, the Colonials pepped up their play in the third and fourth quarters to run up a 33-0 lead by the shooting of the final gun. Vic Sampson was responsible for the only first-half score, making it on a beautiful run of 60 yards in the second quarter. After what must have been a very restful inter- mission, the Pixleemen romped roughshod over the Nodaks in the final half, with prac- tically the entire Buff team figuring in the scoring. The most risque play of the after- noon feature was a touchdown play in which Joey Kaufman flipped an aerial to Bob Canning, Colonial tackle, who scored from the 8-yard line. North Dakota’s only threat was Bernie Bermann’s recovery of Tihila’s fumble on the Colonial 16, but the Buffmen were not really in danger, for the Bisons gained a total of minus 8 yards from this point. [ 254 ] Nicksick Yurwjtz JOEY KAUFMAN Playing his last year as a Huffman, Joey proved to be a consistent ground gainer and a fine passer as well as a fine field general. Moving in on the varsity field as a Sophomore Kaufman has been a valuable asset to Coach Pix- lee for three years. GUY RENZAGLIA Guy was a regular who could always be depended upon to come through in fine style, and although outweighed by most of his opponents, invariably out- played them. Playing his second year, Guy could always be found in any pile- up around center, and allowed very little yardage to be gained through his guard position. lie’ll be back next year to do battle for the Colonials. ALLAN HOLT Hard hit by ankle injuries and other ail- ments, Holt saw a minimum of action this year so that his performance, which made him a real mate for Hanken last year, was negligible. He recovered at the last of the season and saw a little action, however, and will he back next year to seek his regular starting flank post. IZZY WEINBERG Although injured early in the season, Izzy came back to aid greatly in proving that the Colonial’s line was a thing to be taken seriously by all its opponents. One of the fastest men on the squad, he is rated as one of the best guards in recent George Washington grid history and next year should be at his peak. BOGDAN NICKSICK Nick, gaining considerable note for his relationship to his brother, the famous Pitt star, turned in a fine job as a back- field man on the Colonia l machine. An- other small man, Nicksick showed great offensive power due to his speed and elusive “scat back” style of running. PETE YURWITZ All indications that Pete would blossom into one of the finest ends on the squad were verified this fall when he developed into a crashing end on defense and a fine pass receiver on offense. Pete was fast in getting down the field under punts and was as effective in blocking as any flanker you’ll find. Bogdan Nicksick Allan Holt 1255 ] Nowaskv Rebholz Mahan Carroll Arkansas Game Following a long, long trek to the bad lands of Arkansas, the Colonials faced a problem of almost impossible proportions, that of beating the Razorbacks. They met the task with a will that was limited by an equal will of the Porkers. The result — G. W., o; Arkansas, o. Taking the field with little other than a weak hope of defeating the team which trounced “Ole Miss,” conquerors of the Colonials, our men staved off a strong aerial attack of the Fayetteville eleven, and managed to hold their superiors to a deadlock for the entire game before 10,000 surprised fans at Little Rock, Arkansas. Ending a scoring streak that had endured through thirty-one games, the Colonials reached the peak of an otherwise miserable season by acquitting themselves in truly amazing style against the Southwest Conference champions. Only once did the Razor- backs near the pay stripe, and on that occasion the Buff line held on its own 4-yard line. Three times the Colonials took advantage of Razorback fumbles to hammer at the Porker goal line, but were turned back each time, once by a brilliant goal-line stand and twice by heart-breaking penalties. W est Virginia Game Returning in temporary glory from Arkansas, the Colonials again took the road, this time for a shorter and sorrier trip. Their journey ended brutally and abruptly in Morgantown, West Virginia, on Thanksgiving Day, the victim of Indian-like hospital- ity, and a 26-0 lambasting. Four times the Mountaineers hit pay dirt, and twice they scored on the extra-point effort. While they were reaping these blessings from the god of football wars, the Colonials were slipping on an ice-covered field, absorbing dire humility, and scoring absolutely nothing. While the Colonials were reeling off an amazing total of 7 first downs for the afternoon’s efforts, the hackfield stars of the home team were tearing the Buff line to shreds. Sammy Pinion, Kelly Moan and a light-footed young man named Clark were responsible for the scoring spree, running the ends, the line, and the Colonials in gen- eral into the ground. The closest that the Colonials got to the final marker was the 15-yard line, and that push came to an abrupt end late in the fourth quarter after the better part of the blood had already been spilled. And so, in humility, ends the 1937 gridiron campaign. [256 1 Hallberg Hogg BRUCE MAHAN Starting quarterback in the majority of the games this year, this Senior will be sorely missed next year, for he is prob- ably the smartest baekfield man on the team, is a good ball carrier, a fine blocker and one of the rare type of men who give the team fire and spirit in action. LOUIS CARROLL After recovering from a leg injury sus- tained in his Junior year, Louis started the season at end, but was shifted to the blocking halfback position when he saw- action. Carroll played hi- last year, and was a fair ball carrier. BOB NOWASKY Bob is just a Sophomore this year, and so brilliantly did he perform his fullback position on the squad and in spring prac- tice that the G. W. coaches predicted hi ' success last fall. He didn ' t let them down, and appears to be the brightest prospect G. W. has had since TuflFy Lee- mans. JOHN REBHOLZ John is the player who can always be depended upon to do his part, although frequently unnoticed by the crowd. He gets results and plays in a steady, de- pendable style. John has one more year, and if he improves as much next year as he did this, there is no reason that he can’t go down as one of the grid greats of G. W. ALLAN HALLBERG Alternating with Stapleton at the pivot position, Center Hallberg showed his stuff on many occasions, and stamped himself as a valuable addition to the squad this year. In addition to his foot- ball prowess, he holds the highest scho- lastic average of the varsity. ELMER HOGG Elmer, who hails from Arkansas, was one of the hardest hitting fullbacks seen on the local gridiron in recent years, and could always be depended upon to pick up three or four yards when needed. Although- not seeing as much action as was deemed his, Elmer played well when he was in the game.

From row: Garber, Buttcrworth, O’Brien, Silkowitz, Fans. BASKETBALL Stamping themselves as one of the finest teams of the nation, the ’37-’38 Colonial basketball team won 13 games from some of the strongest teams in the nation, losing only 4 battles in a 17-game schedule. Coach Bill Reinhart, in building this powerful squad, was faced by the loss of three of last year’s regulars by graduation, but he managed to mould a well- balanced five around his sole remaining Senior, Captain Tommy O’Brien. The four other regulars for practically all of the season were Juniors, Bob Faris, Jack Butterworth, and Sid Silkowitz, and George Garber, Sophomore. Arnold ' Reds” Auerbach, another Sophomore, saw active service in practically all of the games, both as a forward and a guard. The team opened the season with five successive victories, smothering Balti- more University in the opener and then trouncing the University of Tennessee by a large margin. Victories over the two powerful Big Ten schools, Minnesota and Ohio State marked a high point in the season’s activities. Following a victory over Elon, the Colonials suffered their first setback at the hands of the Long Island Blackbirds in New York. The loss to the Blackbirds marked the beginning of a road trip to the West, in which the team defeated West Vir- ginia and Wayne and lost to Loyola and Toledo University. [ 258 J Returning home from a tiring swing to the West, the team chalked up suc- cessive victories over Westminster and Wayne, before again taking to the road to beat St. John’s at Brooklyn. After the St. John’s game, the Colonials boasted a record of ten wins and three defeats. There were four remaining games on their schedule, the first two being with Loyola of Chicago. With a possible bid to the National basket- ball tournament in New York at stake, the Buffmen defeated Loyola the next two nights with scores of 44-39 and 48-33. With only one day’s rest intervening they went to Cumberland, Md., and defeated Davis-Elkins, 54-43. The loss of the Washington and Jefferson game the following day was a bitter climax to the season’s record of thirteen wins and four defeats.

[ 259 ] Captain Tommy O ' Brien chasing the ball in Loyola game THREE COLONIALS MAKE ALL DISTRICT FIVE Sid Silkowitz leaping for ball in Loyola game In honor of their outstanding play throughout the long, tough season of intercollegiate basketball competition, three Colonial regulars were named to the annually chosen All-District Court team, selected by the down- town papers from the colleges of the District. The Buff-and-Blue men so named were Captain Tommy () Brien, Jack Butterworth, and Bob Paris. Tommy O’Brien, captain of the mythical five, was elected to the team for the third successive year, being the first court star in recent years so honored. His outstanding defensive and offensive work at forward marked him as one of the finest court men ever to wear the Buff and Blue and caused him to be signified by Coach [ 260 J Bill Reinhart as the ‘‘finest captain 1 have ever coached. ’ Jack Butterworth, lanky, accurate-shooting center, was named to the team over Mike Petroskey, Hoya center, who was accorded a guard post on the team. Jack was cited as being one of the most capable all-around centers in the East. He placed second in the high-scoring race among the members of the Colonial team. To Bob Paris went the other forward post on the team, and justly so, for Bob finished second in the District in scoring, leading his team with a total of 170 markers for the 17 games in which he played. One of the fastest men on his team. Bob could always be depended upon for several baskets and could be relied upon for the highest type of defensive work. In addition to these three men, George Garber, Sophomore Colonial guard, was awarded a position in that spot on the second team chosen by the sports writers. The return of Garber, Faris, Silkowitz, and Butterworth to the Colonial court wars next year should give Coach Reinhart a fine basis upon which to form a team even stronger than this year’s impressive five, which won 13 out of 17 games. Rounding out the mythical five, Mike Petroskey of Georgetown was awarded one of the guard posts while George Knepley, of Maryland, was honored with the other guard position.

Front row: Sze, Turrou, Wetzel, Randall. Goumas. JRIFLE The Varsity rifle team closed the cur- rent season with the finest record com- piled in recent years. Under the capable direction of Coach Frank Parsons, the Colonial sharpshooters set a record of six victories in seven matches in the Middle Atlantic Intercollegiate League. In addition the Huff marksmen en- gaged in six shoulder-to-shoulder matches with local teams and competed in three tournaments. George Washing- ton was runner-up to the local Marine Barracks team in the District Champion- ship Tournament held on February 22. The Colonials won the Carnegie Tech Invitation Tournament at Pittsburgh for the second year in a row. In the Individual Intercollegiate Championship Tournament, Julian Griggs won third place honors. The five regular Colonial riflemen won five of the first eleven places — a very credit- able performance. The six men who consistently shot the highest totals during the season were Dana Wallace, William Wetzel, Julian Griggs, Manager Jack Harlan, Robert Randall, and William Brown. • RESULTS G.

C 262 J Interfraternity Athletics, which always arouse keen interest and competi- tion among the twelve Greek-letter organizations on the campus, got under way early in the school year with tennis as the lead-off on the strenuous schedule under the direction of George Croft, athletic chairman of the Interfraternity Council. Moving through four brackets the tourney furnished four weeks of competition for the " Brothers.” Sigma Alpha Epsilon, which eliminated Phi Sigma Kappa, defending cham- pions of two years’ standing, went on to win the crown by defeating Sigma Chi, 3-2. S. A. E. lost no matches until the finals. Following tennis on the program, basketball was inaugurated with the same fine spirit of competition that marked the tennis tourney. Sigma Nu and Acacia, who were undefeated in competition, were disquali- fied for using men who had played varsity ball. This situation caused them to forfeit all of their games and placed Delta Tau Delta and Kappa Sigma in the league leads. On February 7 in a hard-fought contest, the Delts took an early lead to finish the half leading Kappa Sigma 14-6. The Kappa Sigs came back and held the Delts to two points in the second half, but lost, 17-16. An All-Interfraternity team was chosen by the Hatchet staff. Honored on the team were: Bob McConnell of Sigma Chi, and Joe Bob Gale of Kappa Sigma at forwards; Howard Mace of Phi Sigma Kappa at center; and Vic Sampson of Acacia and Karl Schmitt of Delta Tau Delta at guards. With the beginning of the second semester bowling and ping pong were ushered in, the bowling competition scheduled on Saturdays and ping pong on Sunday nights at the various fraternity houses. Play was usually followed by radio dances. In the bowling, Phi Sigma Kappa annexed the league B crown and suc- ceeded in downing the league A title holders, Theta Upsilon Omega, defend- ing champions, to win the cup in two straight games. T. U. O. was the favorite as the finals approached, having piled up the best record for the season; but the Phi Sig toppers were in rare form and rolled high games of 526 and 533 pins to decisively defeat the favorites. The Phi Sigs, who were defending champions in table tennis, again won their league by piling up the enviable record of 24 wins against one loss. Kappa Alpha, the other league champion, duplicated the Phi Sig performance and competition ran high as the finals approached. Phi Sigma Kappa also successfully defended its fifth consecutive baseball title by defeating T. U. O. last spring. Both of these teams met the year before in the finals, with the Phi Sigs getting the nod in the earlier meeting. [ 263 ] Front row: Fretz. Amendola. Hyatt, Zenowitz, Urich. Bock row: Coach Zahn.

FRESHMAN BASKETBALL With several promising Frosh casaba tosserv as a nucleus, Ott Zahn built a team which won its fourteen games and went through an unusually successful season de- spite the fact that first-semester grades cut the squad of several first-string members. Scheduling two games with the Frosh of Maryland University as the highlights, the Colonial yearlings played through a most impressive season with decisive wins over Fredericksburg High, George Washington High, Washington-Lee High, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, who last year won over the Frosh in the finals of the District A. A. U. tournament. Outstanding men on the squad who should develop into valuable assets to the varsity quint in the future are Joe Comer, center; Louis Veltri, forward; Jack Oland, guard; Manfield Hyatt, forward; Edward Amendola, forward; and Ludwig Urick, at guard.

Opening the season against the Naval Academy’s Plebes, the Frosh lost their first encounter by a 19-0 score. Although showing lack of practice, the scrubs played " heads-up” football throughout the first half only to weaken in the second half to let the Plebes push over three scores. A lateral in the third quarter started the scoring for the Plebes; this was followed in the fouth quarter by capitalizing on a blocked punt and an intercepted pass to push over two more tallies on the tiring Frosh. Conflict of schedules caused the second game against the Carney Point, New Jersey, Y. M. C. A. gridders to be postponed from Octo- ber 2 to October 30, when the two teams played to a 7-7 tie. This was the third consecutive year these teams have clashed, and a rivalry has sprung up between them which should do much to inspire incoming yearling teams at the Colonial institution. Because of increasing illness and lack of material the game with the Temple University Freshmen was cancelled. Frosh gridders who showed promise of becoming valuable varsity men were Edward Wilamowski, a triple-threat back; Alvin Honeycut, best punter on either the freshman or the varsity squads; George Mi- tros, guard; John Kokoski, guard; Jack Kannady, end; Vic Tourrou, end; Anthony Batauskos, tackle; Thomas Grady, guard; and Cal Courtney, end. [ 265 ] MAX FARRINGTON Inaugurating one of the most extensive programs ever undertaken by the athletic department of the University, intramural activities were started shortly after registra- tion with tennis and golf tournaments. Following these two sports, touch football, basketball and table tennis rounded out the first semester with what proved to be one of the busiest semesters in intramural history. Individual winners were named in tennis, table tennis, and golf, with cups being given as prizes. F. Elwood Davis won the tennis tourney, while S. G. Loeffler cap- tured the golf crown. Eldon Scott was awarded the trophy in the table tennis com- petition. Introduced for the first time this year was touch football. Two leagues were formed with four teams in each league. After four weeks of competition, the Bears, a team composed of Law students, emerged with the “bacon” and received a cup for their victory. As cold weather set in, all activities were confined to the gym where a basketball tournament was staged. The Law ' “A” five won the championship in a final game with Law “B” after five interesting weeks of play. To care for the usual lapse of past intramural programs, volleyball w r as added to the late winter schedule of activity and proved of value in carrying the program through to the early spring outdoor sports. Plans for spring sports were laid shortly after the beginning of the second semester. The sports undertaken and carried out were tennis, soft ball, horseshoes, baseball, and golf. Max Farrington, head of the athletic department of the University, deserves the credit for organizing the vast program which has proven so valuable an addition to the activities of the University. In his work he was assisted by the other two mem- bers of the intramural board, Bernie Phillips and Tim Moynihan. Various members of the varsity football and basketball teams assisted these men in carrying out the schedules as arranged. 1 266 J RUTH H.

Later there was an open evening and a dance recital in addition to a Varsity House-W. A. A. party. Awards were made at the winter and spring ban- quets. 1 268 l Top row: Patterson. Livingston.

The organization scoring the most points in all the tour- naments is awarded a cup at the annual spring banquet. Cups are awarded to sorori- ties for each event won. Individual letters also are given to outstanding players. Kappa Delta won the plaque last year. [ 269 ] HOCKEY Hockey enthusiasts enjoyed a popular season this year under the direction of Eleanor Wyvell, man- ager, and Miss Jenny Turnbull, instructor. The assistant managers this fall were: Emily Sirola, Mar- garet Burch, Alice Miller, Jane Castell and Isabel Richvvine. In the games between the teams of the various hockey sections, the Colonial Buffs emerged triumphant. Mary Schrieber, Isabel Richwine, Frances Alex, Peggy Lavender, Mary Christianson, Jane Castell, Alison Claflin, Ann Gaither, Frances Prather, Eleanor Wyvell, and Helen Neuendorf were chosen for the honorary varsity. SOCCER With Mary Jane Livingston as manager and Miss Helen Lawrence as coach, the soccer season last fall was a very successful one. One of the most important events of the season was the annual fall sports meet with Hood and G oucher Colleges at Frederick, Md. The G. W. soccer team played four highly contested games with only one loss. Muriel Friedman, Katherine Bowen, Mabel Johnson, Marion Pauls, Lily Cobb, Margaret Mc- Dowell, Laura Ellis, Catherine Moore, Ruth Ream, Mary Jane Livingston and Agnes Rvman were selected for the honorary varsity. The assistant managers were: Agnes Ryman, Margaret McDow- ell, Ruth Ream and Laura Ellis. [ 270 ] TENNIS Alison Claflin, with Virginia Moore as a close runner-up, carried off the honors in the fall tennis tournament which was the main event of the Tennis season. In the doubles tournament which was played off in the latter part of October, Alison Claflin and Vir- ginia Moore teamed together to de- feat the Margaret Duffy-Laura Ellis combination for the doubles title. In the spring tennis season class teams were chosen and both singles and doubles tournaments were played. Miss Turnbull was the coach and Mary Christianson the sport man- ager. Margaret Duffy, Sally Steele, Madelaine Matchett, and Alison Claflin were assistant managers. Under Hazel Smallwood, sports manager, and Miss Elizabeth Burt- ner, instructor, the fall season reached its culmination in the An- nual Fall Tournament. Hazel Smallwood, winner of last Spring’s Cup, also won the Fall Cup. For the first time, an Archery Varsity was selected. The girls were: Mary Backenstoss, Jean Harris, Lydia Israel, Jean Meyn, Carol Olson, Emily Scott, Clair Singer, Hazel Smallwood, Claire Swinney and Betty Wilkinson. Another innovation this year was the formation of the Archery Club, which features indoor archery. [ 271 ] With the inter-class games and a Triangular Sport Meet with Hood and Goucher Colleges in Baltimore as the outstanding events of the season, basketball this winter has kept up its traditional popularity. Following the inter-class compe- tition in the early part of February, the odd vs. even and the honorary varsity vs. alumnae games were played. The latter contest is always of especial interest because many of last year’s grads come back to play. Miss Lawrence and Miss Turn- bull coached the separate class teams, and Barbara Harmon was the sport manager. Gladys Lagos, Ellen Zir- pel, Ruth Ream and Peggy Essary were assistant managers. BADMINTON Badminton continued its rapid rise in the favor of George Wash- ington’s sportswomen. Miss Jenny Turnbull directed this sport, aided by Virginia Moore, sports manager, and the class managers, Jane Smith, Ellen Zirpel, Betty Corkhill and Betty Hayworth. In February, Marion Pauls won the singles tournament with Jane Castell as runner-up. Women’s doubles matches were played within the various classes. Class victors then competed against each other for the championship. Again this year, the mixed doubles tournament proved very popular with an impressive number of couples competing. [ 27 2 ] DANCING The “New Dance” continued to be one of the most popular activities offered during the winter season. The fact was shown by the number of enthusiastic dancers, who after having worked with the dance groups in class for several months, were initiated into Orchesis, honor- ary advanced dance group. Both the Recital and the Sym- posium, annually held each spring, proved successful under the inspira- tion and leadership of Miss Burtner in establishing dance as a major art form on the campus. Fins, a recreational club spon- sored by Miss Jenny Turnbull, again dominated the swimming scene at George Washington. Starting in the fall, semi-monthly swims were given at the Shoreham swimming pool. The school’s mer- maids enjoyed such features as div- ing instructions, several coed swims, and lessons for beginners. Heading Fins was Mary Chris- tianson, president; with Betty Burch as vice-president; Ann Gaither, sec- retary; and Jane Castell, treasurer. In the spring, the large annual Swimming Meet took place. All types of swimming techniques, in- cluding both swimming and diving, were represented here. [ 273 ] GOLF Golf, that ancient sport of the Scottish Highlands, ably coached by Miss Jenny Turnbull and managed by Norma Hatfield, had a very suc- cessful season during 1937-38. Approximately 20 young lassies, eight of whom were eligible for the Women’s Athletic Associat ion, re- ported for classes on the West Poto- mac Links. In the sectional contests the best scores were made by Laura Ellis, Betty Brown and Dorothy Stilwell. The annual spring tournament was played on the East Potomac Links. HIDING Local equestriennes had a most successful year under the able direc- tion of Miss Ruth Atwell and Miss Elizabeth Burtner. Sports Manager Laura Ellis remained the most out- standing figure among G. W.’s coed riders. The Shoreham riding ring was the scene of an informal Fall Rid- ing Show with Laura Ellis emerging victorious. High point of the entire year was the annual Spring Show, staged at Meadowbrook, with all G. W. horsewomen eligible. An added at- traction this year was the presenta- tion of the silver cup, given to the winner by Arthur Godfrey, popular radio entertainer and horse fancier. [ 274 ] MFLE G. W.’s women rirters, under Coach Helen Hanford, and Man- ager Norma Hatfield, had a busy season. The Varsity team, composed of Betty Bates, Virginia Birkby, Laura Ellis, Nancy Gatch, Carol Hobart (Captain), Doris Ludwig, Marie McNeese, Carolyn Watson, Betty Wilkinson and Jean Yocum, com- peted in Inter-collegiate and Na- tional Rifie Association matches. The Varsity won ten out of thirteen matches, competing against such teams as Drexel, Missouri, Mary- land and Carnegie Tech. Junior Medal awards, for girls under iS, were inaugurated this year. Girls not on varsity were eligible for Individual and Class matches, the latter being hard-fought between Hobart, Hanford. Hatfield the Freshman, Sophomore, and Junior-Senior teams. Birkby. Hobart. Captain; Wilkinson, Watson. Eli , Yocum, McNeese, Calver, Bates, Ludwig. Smallwood f 27) I 7 eat u r e s z;uj u - Two established features of the Yearbook eagerly awaited each year by the students are the Beauty Contest and The Hall of Fame. Gilbert Bundy, noted illustrator, graciously consented to choose the three most beautiful girls at George Washington from the following contestants: Katherine Baart, Catherine Brown, Lily Dhu Cobb, Virginia Birkby, Elizabeth Hogentogler, Virginia Moore, Mary Norris, Mildred Patterson, Margaret Smith, Violet Smith, Carolyn Watson, and Virginia Webb. The Hall of Fame, selected by a faculty committee of Mrs. Barrows, Dean Doyle, Dean Johnstone, Dean Kayser, and Mr. Farrington, is composed of eight members of the graduating class of 1938 chosen on the basis of activities, scholarship, and general worthiness of recognition. f 279 i VIMGINIA MOOEE [ 280 ] r 28i 1 Margaret Smith William Wetzel Frances Prather Thomas O’Brien William Rochelle Susan Slater Margaret Sickler Ruth Brewer Theodore Pierson 4 MARCH OF EVENTS CAMP LETTS Hope ran high during the three weeks gridiron training season at Camp Letts, Md., as players, coaches and scribes alike looked eagerly forward to what promised to be one of the best seasons in Colonial history. With a banner year behind them, and practically the whole team re- turning, there seemed to be no rea- son to believe the Buff would do other than hang up an enviable record. All regular positions seemed adequately filled before the training camp was closed, and many prom- ising Sophomores were fighting to break into the starting line-up. Not a cloud loomed on Coach Jim Pixlee’s horizon as the team broke camp and prepared to enter what was unanimously thought to be the " best season ever.” MAD CHAOS Registration on September 18 th, so eagerly anticipated by new stu- dents, so hurriedly and automatical- ly done by the old ones, marks the beginning of the semester. It is bad enough for the re-entering students, but how the new ones last through the ordeal is one of the unsolved mysteries. Incoming Freshmen are bewil- dered by signs indicating where va- rious professors may be found. Pro- gram sheets are thrust into trem- bling hands, slips must be filled out with hazily remembered and, until now, unimportant incidents from the past and predictions of the fu- ture. Then comes the arduous task of making a schedule of classes cor- responding to the requisites. All this must be approved by the advis- [ 286 ] ers and the dean before the day is completed. The students are then sent to the comptroller’s office, where they pay for their tuition. Finally, the stu- dents are sent to the photographer, where, replete with shiny nose, rum- pled hair and harried expression, an informal picture is taken for the activity book. This marks the end to a completely bewildering day. CLASSES BEGIN September means school, and school means classes at colleges and universities throughout the country, and G. W. is no exception. All the old students are so busy showing the new Freshmen where the differ- ent buildings are that they have no time to get to their own classes. It is also the time when the old stu- dents who do manage to get to classes are able to shine as the poor little Freshmen are a bit awed by it all for the first few weeks. Soon, however, the new students come into their own and all is normal once more. LAMBS IN THE FOLD Inaugurating for the first time a six weeks’ rush period, campus Greek lettermen began, on Septem- ber 18, the annual mad scramble for likely-looking prospects. Bewil- dered frosh were besieged on every hand with invitations to dance, smoke, see football games, shows, and co-operating co-eds, all at the expense of what they were always assured was the " best fraternity on this or any other campus.” The season rolled on through an almost endless succession of social functions, reaching its climax with Pledging Sunday, October 24. Re- sult: 180 Freshmen sporting the pledge buttons of 12 fraternities. UNION SHOOTS The George Washington Union lost no time in setting the political pot to boiling for the school year. The Right and Left parties distrib- uted vote-soliciting handbills during the first days of registration, and all three parties held conventions to nominate candidates for the presi- dency. The election was held and ( 287 ] Bill Speer of the Center party was inaugurated into the office. The Union during the year en- tertained David Cushman Coyle, Senator Guy Gillette, and the illu- sion that they were to become na- tionally famous, the latter induced by a hurry call from Life Magazine to present for its photographers a special session to be pictured in a forthcoming issue. The session was called, the pictures snapped but never printed. The Union’s first legislative session started stiffly; quickly reverted into an exhibition of parliamentary acrobatics; ended in a melee. TEA ORGY Pan-Hellenic Tea, September 26, at the Raleigh Hotel, keynoted the campaign of the sorority rush sea- son. A milling pack of sorority presidents and lesser rushers plied bewildered rushees with plates of cakes, drenched them with tea. Ef- forts of the Greek gals to impress Freshmen resulted in one of the gayest style shows of the year. After a week of getting well ac- quainted, formal rushing began with sorority teas in chapter rooms on Sunday, October 3. The open season carried on until closing of preferential bid lists on October 14, packed with theatre and dinner par- ties, carnival parties, dances and teas of all descriptions. Publication of bid results and in- formal pledging on October 15 saw 225 frosh gaily displaying the col- ors and corsages of their chosen lodges, their status changed from rushees to pledges. FOOTBALLS AND APPLES At Griffith Stadium on October 1, the Colonial grid machine, mak- ing its 1937 debut, drubbed weak Wake Forest, 34-6; warmed the hearts of G. W. rooters; gave promise of a successful season which failed to materialize. Chief interest, paradoxically, was centered less on the doings of the Buff warriors than on the half-time capers of the Rousers Club, who lampooned the funeral of the hapless Deacons, end- ing in a performance of the Big Apple to the accompaniment of Brusiloff’s swingsters. [ 288 ] CRASHING SUCCESS The major crashing success of the year was held October 8, spon- sored by the Junior College Student Council under the misleading name of Frosh Mixer. The problem of finding enough Freshmen to justify the reason for the dance troubled very few Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors as they tripped the light fantastic to the trickling rhythm of Brusiloff’s swing band. NIGHT CLUB Introducing an innovation in campus activities, the Student Council, on October 15, opened, under the able direction of Jay Samuel the first college night club in the East — the Buff ’n’ Blue Room. Three hundred students danced to the tunes of Bill McCallum’s Band, vociferously applauded an all-student floor show, got their pic- tures in downtown papers. Director Samuel announced that the club would be opened several times dur- ing the school year and invited tal- ented students to appear on the fu- ture programs. All in all, the night club was a success for everyone concerned, bringing stage aspirants experience, students cheap entertainment; Sam- uel an ODK key. SCRIBES MEET The University’s chapter of Pi Delta Epsilon played host in Octo- ber to the national convention of their fraternity. Accomplishment of the convention was the striking out of the word " male” as a qualifica- tion for membership. Acting under the amendment, the local chapter at once invited the entire membership of Gamma Eta Zeta, fifteen-year- old local journalistic sorority, to full membership in Pi Delta Epsi- lon. The infusion of new blood worked like a charm. In fact, there are some of the old-school (ma le) members who feel that the enthu- siastic activity of the new (female) members is likely to transfer leader- ship in the fraternity affairs. DEADLINE DODGERS Bob Howell’s Handbook Staff went into the final two weeks be- [ 289 ] fore fall registration a month be- hind their deadline, and still no copy done. Since this is the usual state of affairs for a Handbook staff, no qualms were felt. Late va- cations among the staff members and the perfidy of the Department of Agriculture, which transferred Bob to Cheyenne, turned it into a riot, though, and the printing presses were just able to keep up with the tide of Freshmen rushing through registration thirsting for information-laden Handbooks. The Hatchet went through a harrowing year. Co-editor-elect Howell having been exiled, the fiendish ingenuity of Howard En- nes was given free rein. The paper entered the year faintly resembling the New York Times , and ran the gamut of type-face changes, novel headlines, column rules, no column rules, and photo-montage, manag- ing to take for the third time the editorial cup awarded by the Inter- collegiate Press Association. Editor Ennes built up a real social-service move in his anti-syphilis campaign, which quickly spread to hundreds of other college papers. TIDE ROLLS Nobody expected to see the Co- lonials defeat Alabama, and nobody was surprised when the Crimson Tiders romped to a three-touch- down victory on October 23. Only once did the Buff threaten to score and that was in the final quarter when Sampson’s pass in- tended for Faris fell plunk in the middle of a group of Red Shirts holding a bull session in the shadow of the goal posts. Bad news: Ala- bama 19 , G. W. 0. SWEETHEARTS It is the inalienable prerogative of every American to prefer his opinion to that of the experts, so this year we had a popularly-chosen Sweetheart to compete with The Cherry Tree’s scientifically select- ed Beauty Queen. Chi Omega’s Betty Hutto carried off the honors, including that of presiding at the Homecoming Ball and Rally, close- f 290 ] ly pursued by lovely ladies selected by twelve other groups. The har- assed Election Committee was able to sidetrack the efforts of the un- inhibited Hatchet staff to enter a cow. RIP-SNORIN’ HURRICANE What proved to be the most heartbreaking game of the season was played by the Buff gridmen on October 29, when the Golden Hur- ricane of Tulsa University scored in the final period to gain a one- point victory. For three quarters the Colonials outguessed, outplayed, outfought the yellow-clad Westerners, only to see victory snatched from their grasp by a rearin’, tearin’ Tulsa substitute. The nemesis’ name was McClune and G. W.’s name was mud. Score: 14-13. CO-EDS’ HAVEN This year the dormitory has be- come one of the most important so- cial spots on the campus. The girls have been very enthusiastic about planning Saturday afternoon tea dances and evening formals. A council consisting of three girls from each floor has been elected to plan these affairs. Many other so- cial functions of the University have been held in the beautiful re- ception room. Proof of the Dorm’s popularity may be had any evening between six and eight by the huge stag line surrounding the switch- board. HOMECOMING Homecoming, 1937, featured a lopsided defeat of the North Da- kota State eleven, many of whom saw that afternoon, in large quan- tities, their first rainfall. The night before saw a rally at the Capitol Theatre, headlining the University Sweetheart candidates in a dance routine, climaxed by the announce- ment and crowning of Chi O.’s Betty Hutto as Sweetheart and Queen of the Homecoming. Also presented were the Band, Glee Club and Rousers, and, for the first time on any stage, a stellar aggregation of campus politicians playing them- selves in a skit entitled " I’d Rather Be Right Than Rochelle.” Despite the dampening effect of climate by the bucketful, a considerable audi- ence paid quarters to attend, and enjoyed themselves and each other to the fullest and loudest extent. f 29! 1 The most raucous half hour was broadcast over a nation-wide hook- up. Following the game Saturday night, the Homecoming Ball took the center of the stage, packing the Willard with a welter of classy clothes and gaiety. Queen Betty took the opportunity presented by intermission to present to Kappa Sigma the cup for having the best decorated fraternity house. Eleven protests, in Greek, were received in the next ten minutes. REVENGE— AFTER A FASHION Homecoming lured nine thousand fans out to Griffith Stadium to see the Colonials take revenge for pre- vious beatings by whipping a very inferior North Dakota State team, 33-0. At that, the Buffmen were held to a lone touchdown in the first half, but the Nodaks wilted in the second session to give the Colo- nials their third victory of the year. It was in this game that Joey Kaufman tossed a touchdown pass to Bob Canning, the stockiest player on the squad. DAVIS CONTEST Senior Classman Edwin Menton Cage, vigorously condemning Amer- ican participation in foreign wars, was awarded the Davis public speaking prize in the 90th annual contest held in Corcoran Hall, No- vember 17. Mildred O. Vierling, discussing " Speech Training and the Univer- sity, took second place; Raymond M. Firth, speaking on " Education for War or Peace,” won third prize. The large, enthusiastic audience heard six contestants deliver pre- pared ten-minute speeches in the traditional contest presided over by Dean Elmer Kayser, winner of the prize in 1917. BAND DANCE The Big Apple was the big fea- ture of the Band Dance, held No- vember 19 in the Student Club to send the University Band to Mor- gantown for the G. W.-West Vir- ginia football game. Brusiloff fur- nished the swing. [292 ] The Band was on hand to sup- port the team, as proof of the af- fair’s success. DEAD HEAT Colonial’s " over-their-heads foot- ball” in Little Rock, November 20, gave them a tie, 0-0, with the high- ly-touted Razorbacks. Despite Arch McDonald’s two-fisted referee cuss- ing, heard via radio by some thou- sands of fans, the game ended right there. WAA WEEK Women’s Athletic Association presented its annual fall sports week, November 12-20, scene being recreation fields around the Wash- ington Monument. Contests and games were arranged for those in- terested in hockey, soccer, tennis, golf, archery and equestriennism. Awards won this week were pre- sented at the fall banquet, Decem- ber 1, at the Admiral Club. UPSETTERS UPSET Fresh from holding Arkansas scoreless five days earlier, Colonials dropped this year’s Turkey Day game, 26-0, to West Virginia, at Morgantown. Outclassed from be- ginning to end, the Colonials made no scoring threat. An enthusiastic cheering crowd was there, to no avail. INTERNATIONAL DEBATE " Resolved, That the Federal Su- preme Court’s power to declare statutes unconstitutional should be restricted,” was the question that the two students of Melbourne Uni- versity journeyed from Australia to this country to disprove. Novem- ber 29 was the date of the interna- tional debate held before the Un- ion. The audience of students and alumni were particularly interested in the viewpoints expressed by the two widely separated worlds. FINAL CURTAIN? Cue and Curtain, principal Uni- versity drama group, after a bril- liantly competent performance of " The Whiteheaded Boy” on De- cember 3, was forced into inactivity by lack of suitable space for re- hearsal, storage and preparation of scenery, and presentation. A black 1 293 ] future faces this group, long an ap- preciated feature of University life. At present, no stage or radio pres- entations are planned. CAGE-COURT OPENER The smoothly-running Colonial court machine opened its season in the customary way by trouncing Baltimore University at Tech High on December 15. Due largely to the efforts of But- terworth, Faris, and Garber, the Buff and Blue led from start (0-0) to finish (43-26) . UNIVERSITY PROMENADES The All-University Prom, held December 17 in the Willard Ball- room, was the first major social function ever held here which was open to all students of the Univer- sity without regard to Greek or other affiliations. Feature of the evening was the Grand March, par- ticipated in by the presidents of a hundred and a quarter campus or- ganizations, and their respective dates. Omicron Delta Kappa, na- tional honorary activities fraternity, tapped thirteen outstanding Juniors during the intermission pause in Joe Haymes’ music. A percentage of the profits was devoted to the an- nual Food Drive. FOOD DRIVE 1937 Food Drive under the joint direction of Jane Ramseyer and Cap Gardner squeezed $554.35 from a long list of contributors, topped by Phi Sigma Kappa’s $67.14, without noticeable assist- ance from the All-University Prom. With this as a war chest, they were able to distribute food baskets to more than 150 needy families, and one loaf of bread to the KD house. Students participating in the dis- tribution had the experience of wit- nessing in the Capital a typical cross-section of the " ill-fed, ill- 1294 j clothed, ill-housed,” tending to make this drive seem, as usual, one of the more useful campus activi- ties. TENNESSEANS TOPPLED The University of Tennessee, highly touted member of the South- eastern Conference, was the second foe to fall before the Colonial cage- sters. Jumping out to a lead in the first minute, the Buffmen were never headed. Score: G. W. 47, U. T. 24. HOLIDAY The pause that refreshes! On December 18 weary students laid aside cumbersome books with a sigh of relief and lit out for home and unacademic activities for two weeks of Christmas vacation. All too soon New Year’s found them straggling in and settling down to a period of feverish study . . . books were dusted off, pencils sharpened, reso- lutions made; Christmas holidays another memory. BEETHOVEN’S NINTH Combined University Glee Clubs climaxed a successful season under the leadership of Dr. Robert Har- mon by participating with the Washington Choral Society and the National Symphony Orchestra in presenting, under the baton of Hans Kindler, Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. Presented December 19 in Constitution Hall, this work was received enthusiastically by a large and appreciative audience. GOPHERS GO The University of Minnesota five, co-champions of the Big Ten, swaggered into Washington New Year’s Day with six victories under the belt and the idea of taking the Colonials in stride, and staggered out on the short end of a 35-27 score. Butterworth was again the star, while 5,000 fans jammed Tech Gym for the conflict. C 295 ) OHIO FALLS On January 3 the high-flying Co- lonial basketeers, meeting their sec- ond Big Ten foe in three days, drubbed the Ohio State five, 46-35. Scoring almost at will, the Buff team consisted of subs most of the game. GOATS GAMBOL January 18, the goats of all the lodges took over the Raleigh Hotel for their annual prom. Feature of the evening was the Grand March led by Council President Cal Court- ney and Jule Wilson, with Justina Brown and Bill Wright, Social Chairman, in the place position. Music was furnished by the Balti- more Townsmen, and the small but select attendance had a gay time; a much better time indeed than those unfortunate pledges who did not attend, but pocketed the deficit. FROSH FORUM Eugene Lerner succeeded where others had failed and the Freshman Club, on January 12, brought to the University Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt, who spoke on " The Function of the University in a Democracy. ,, Corcoran 10 was filled to capacity and many more stood outside in che rain to catch a glimpse of the First Lady. A month later the club spon- sored a debate between representa- tives of the Chinese and Japanese Embassies on the Far Eastern sit- uation, the first debate of its kind in diplomatic history. This forum was also well attended by students and faculty. Later forums featured such na- tionally known figures as Under- secretary of State Sumner Welles, Wisconsin’s Senator Bob La Fol- lette, Texas’ Representative Maury Maverick. OUCH ! The first Colonial road trip could hardly be called a success, for play- ing in a band-box gym, the Buffs dropped their first game of the sea- son to Long Island’s Blackbirds, 25-35. The game, played January 19, was the last for the Colonials until after mid-year exams. MENTAL ANGUISH Light bills go up; the coffee mar- ket booms; sleep becomes a thing to be vaguely remembered — even longed for. Regrets for skipping work earlier in the semester are pro- [ 296 ] fuse. Groans, moans, curses, rum- bling expressions of fear and dis- tress add fuel to the fire of doubt and anxiety that blazes high within your bursting mind. Resolutions for new leaves by the score are turned over, in most cases to come up blank. Finals are upon us! MONUMENT The University Building Com- mittee laid plans for the construc- tion, at 21st and G Streets, of the long-planned, much-needed Hall of Government. The structure, ready for occupancy in June, will stand as another tribute to the generosity of University benefactor Hattie M. Strong, already donor of the dorm which bears her name. ELON NEXT Elon University was the next vic- tim of the unstoppable G. W. cag- ers. The Elonites never had a chance, finally succumbing, 46-29. The proceeds of this game were turned over to the President’s Birthday Celebration Committee for use in the fight against infan- tile paralysis. REGISTRATION AGAIN Mid-term registration, February 2 and 3, has just enough of the first semester’s bad points to make the student think, " Isn’t this where I came in?” and to wonder why he didn’t remember all of the details. Anyway, meeting difficult situations is supposed to develop character. Think how much of that a Senior must have, just from enrolling in school at least eight times. PLEASURE TRIP On February 3, the Colonials opened a disastrous road trip in Detroit by defeating the Wayne University five, 38-35. The disaster came the next day when they lost to Chicago’s Loyola, 45-47, and on February 7, when Toledo Univer- sity dropped them, 57-43. The trip was a social success, however. THOROUGHLY MIXED With upperclassmen unobtrusive- ly seeping through back doors and windows of the Student Club, Feb- ruary Freshmen mixed to the sweet and hot music of Leon Brusiloff. The walls were decorated with their representatives, as Greek letter groups took advantage of an un- excelled opportunity to slip over a little undercover rushing. [ 297 ] BABY PAN-HELLERS Unauthorized presence of older students, originally viewed with alarm, eventually had an extremely desirable effect. After all, no mat- ter how thoroughly you mix Fresh- men, you still have Freshmen. THREE IN A ROW The Buffs hit opening-day stride again on February 9, when they de- feated Westminster in the Tech High gym, 41-26; on February 12, when they walloped Wayne a sec- ond time, 40-29; and again on Feb- ruary 18, when they journeyed to the big town and took St. Johns of New York, 44-41. Modeled after its male counter- part, the Interfraternity Pledge Council, the Junior Pan-Hellenic Council this year was reorganized for the first time in six years. Un- der its auspices, the Junior Pan- Hel Prom, February 11, at the Kennedy-Warren, was one of the successes of the season, due to the enthusiasm of its sponsors and the music of Carleton Edwards. An in- tersorority goat show presented an opportunity for banishment of Pan- Hellenic rivalries in an atmosphere of hilarious gaiety. TRANSIT PUSHERS’ NIGHT OUT Engineering students’ annual bid for social fame, the Engineer Ball, held this year on February 18 at the Kennedy-Warren, presented a spectacle of transformation as the normally serious-minded book pounders donned their party pants and trucked their lasses on down to the limpid strains of Dave McWil- liams’ orchestra. t 298 ) As well as being a real social oc- casion, this affair stands out in a sorry world, proof to us students of human nature that there is a lighter side to the most serious-minded. PATRON’S BIRTHDAY Winter Convocation, February 22, saw 300 certificates and diplo- mas presented to University stu- dents. Psychiatry Professor William Al- lanson White gave the principal ad- dress; President Marvin presented the traditional charge to the grad- uating class. Feature of the occasion was the reception of Phi Beta Kappa repre- sentatives from all over the country in connection with installation of the University’s District of Colum- bia Alpha Chapter of that order. Students and Phi Bates were welcomed by Dean Elmer Louis Kayser, while the invocation was pronounced by Rev. Joseph S. Loughran. Award of Phi Beta Kappa charter to the University, obtained largely through the long- time efforts of the faculty’s Phi Bate George Henning, represents national recognition of the Univer- sity’s success in its campaign to raise academic standards. Students, to be eligible, must maintain a 3.5 average and a record marked by character, general promise, and scholarly ideals. CLASS SYSTEM Social climax of the two-year campaign for re-establishment of the University’s class system was the Freshman-Sophomore Prom at the Washington, February 25. Last year’s Freshman Club, now pro- moted, and its protege and succes- sor, the present Frosh group, have carried on this year a season of ac- tivity unparalleled since the class system disappeared in 1933. The highlight of the evening was the presentation of four outstand- ing members of the Sophomore Class. NOVICES There is no war in Asia, merely an " ' incident;” and among the cam- pus Greek lodges this year, the tra- ditional Hell Week was replaced by a euphemistic " Probationary Period.” The net result was similar. A long and desolate period of pledgeship approached and passed its climax, leaving some hundred dazed ex-goats basking in the favor of their new-found brothers, their pride-swelled breasts supplying tem- [ 299 ] porary resting places for a similar number of variegated jeweled pins, to be proudly worn and casually displayed on sweater and vest until superior claims had been estab- lished, and they were transferred to fairer wearers. MORTAR BOARD Senior women in activities were given a new honor on February 26, when the University’s sixteen- year-old Hour Glass Society was inducted as the fifty-ninth chapter of Mortar Board, national hon- orary society for women. Nine ac- tive members and twenty alumnae were initiated at the induction cere- mony. INTERFRATERNITY PROM Highlight of the Greek letter so- cial season, the Interfraternity Prom, held this year on March 4, featured Russ Morgan’s vocal- packed, pace-changing music, as campus Greeks trundled their daz- zlingly-raimented partners around the Willard floor. A Grand March of Interfraternity leaders mean- dered around the ballroom, and Gate and Key, honorary activities fraternity, seized the occasion to tap 25 new members. Awards were pre- sented to the winners in the inter- fraternity intramurals, and a cup to the most valuable basketball player of the year. FAIREST COLONIAL Esquire’s Gilbert Bundy, chosen this year to pick three from among the flock of campus entrants as the winner of the Cherry Tree’s Beauty Contest, gracefully and well discharged a task unenviable in the extreme. Or don’t you think so? GRAND SLAM Bridge tournament on March 5, Pan-Hellenic innovation, contrib- uted to the breakdown of academic morale by placing a premium on inactivity, rewarding those girls who spend spare hours around Stu- dent Club tables rather than in Li- brary and classrooms. Pointing no fingers, be it record- ed that Kappa Delta won. RECREATION NIGHT A spirit of friendly competition marked Recreation Night, held in the University gym on March 25. The event was sponsored by the Women’s Athletic Association to give the students an opportunity to get together to play badminton, [ 300 ] shuffle-board, ping-pong and other games. The square dance after- wards was the highlight of the eve- ning. The participants couldn’t do the steps well, but novices always have more fun than veterans. AND SO TO PRESS This year’s Cherry Tree, like all its worthy predecessors since the dawn of time and the academic sys- tem, began its season on good inten- tions and ended up in a double dose of chaos. The placid and unsuspecting staff, having been snuck up on and sandbagged by the deadline into the realization that this issue couldn’t possibly come out, was jerked panic- stricken into a frantic scramble for data, pictures and copy. GREEK GALS 9 GALA Spring really came to the cam- pus a trifle late. About a week behind the much-ballyhooed cherry blossoms, the Pan-Hel Prom, packed with pulchritude and dis- playing the cream of the coutou- rier ' s craft, ushered in the vernal season with a bang. Staged by and for the sororities, the Prom gave the girls among the Greeks a real night out, furnishing the hard-to-beat combination of a spring night, Don Bestor’s smooth- flowing music, and dates of their own choosing. Awarded during intermission were the trophies for inter-sorority intramurals, while Delphi entered into the spirit of the festivities by tapping eight outstanding sorority women. VACATION ON THE AVENUE April 15-20, rest treatment for the University’s spring-fever epi- demic. Easter vacation means tra- ditionally clothes, church, rest. To [ 301 1 lesson-heckled students, it means quit study. Occasional textbooks packed into overnight bags are ges- tures to man ' s inherent belief that he is fundamentally a conscientious individual. POINT COUNTERPOINT Spring campus elections are typ- ically characterized by line-up of Greek letter organizations into the two political parties. This year ' s varied only in the trend, noticeable for several years, toward formation of a strong minority Independent Party. Success of non-Greek stu- dents in this direction will eventu- ally change not only the party-line divisions, but the character of cam- paigns, now mainly devoted to mu- tual recriminations. Typical tactics include about ninety percent point- ing with scorn, five percent point- ing with pride, and five percent miscellaneous pointing. Campaign literature and speeches are abso- lutely interchangeable, requiring only alteration of names and party designations. SPRING FEVER Attendance in classes falls off. A great exodus from Washington over week-ends reveals that Spring is here. Each year it brings new ro- mances and heart throbs. Dan Cu- pid is busy tossing his little darts into the air, disrupting the easy nor- mal flow of life. The Student Club is deserted for pleasanter spots such as Rock Creek Park or the Tidal Basin and Cherry Trees. The few who do attend classes are living pic- tures of Vogue and Esquire. The whole atmosphere changes from one [ 302 ] of study and seriousness to one of frivolity and impishness. The truth of the saying, " In the spring a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love,” is clearly por- trayed on the campus. CLIMAX Spring might herald the twitter- ing of birds and romances for the lads and lassies around campus, but it also brings those dreaded ogres commonly known as finals. Many a hard decision has had to be made between cramming for an exam or breezing off in an open coupe for the rolling hills of Maryland or Virginia. But in life one must learn to take the bitter with the sweet. Finally, with the last thought wrung from a dry memory, the last exam is finished and we are off for a care- free summer. SENIOR WEEK The Alumni Association enter- tained the graduating class with a reception and danc e Saturday, June 4. A holiday spirit held sway that evening in the Mayflower Hotel, with each departing student wear- ing the traditional red rose and dancing to the strains of a rhythm orchestra. Sunday evening, June 5, more dignified than ever in caps and gowns, the class met in the Wash- ington Cathedral for the impressive Baccalaureate Sermon. Each Senior will cherish the mem- ory of President and Mrs. Marvin’s reception and tea, held Monday afternoon from 4 to 7 at the Wash- ington Club. There was music, dancing, refreshments, and friendly tete-a-tetes. Parents and visiting friends were invited to the party. Class Night, held Tuesday eve- ning, was the last informal gather- ing of the graduates. The Univer- sity grounds were gaily decorated with lights for the occasion. Hon- ors and prizes were awarded to the outstanding members of the Senior Class. Addresses were given; the Glee Clubs and Band furnished the music. Wednesday, June 8, Convoca- tion, in Constitution Hall at 8 p.m. Again donned in caps and gowns, the Seniors filed onto the stage to receive that hard-won diploma. With sheepskins held in firm hands, they were ready to take their place in the world.
