The Junior College curricula contains the studies of a general cul- tural nature and lays a foundation for the more specialized work which is to follow. Emphasis is placed on the social, cultural, biological and physical background of civiliza- tion and on the discipline necessary to t he carrying out of more advanced work. The Junior College also provides the pre-professional work required for admission to the Schools of Pharmacy, Education, Government and die first two years of the pre-professional work required by the Schools of Medicine and Law, u COLUMBIAN COLLEGE The Columbian College was founded in 1821 for the “sole and exclusive purpose of educating youth in the English, learned and foreign languages, the liberal arts, sciences and literature, with full power to confer all de- grees usually granted and conferred in colleges 1 In 1930 when the Junior College was established, the name “Co- lumbian College 11 was given to the senior college of liberal arts.

Assistant Dean Linton 15 SCHOOL V sisiaiil Dean Jessup OF GOVERNMENT Tile George Washington University lias provided train- ing in both foreign service and governmental theory and administration throughout its history. The School of Gov- ernment was established in 1928 to bring together in various undergraduate and graduate curricula this work It is the purpose of the school to give the student an under- standing of his responsibilities under the constitution of the United States in the conduct of public office both do- mestic and foreign This can be accomplished through a curriculum which correlates social, economics, political, historical, business and psychological studies. The School of Government definitely plays an important part in The George Washington University, a part which is further emphasized by its location in the nation’s capital. 16 SCHOOL OF EDUCATION Tile purpose of the School of Education is to prepare teachers, supervisors and administrators for the higher ranges of educational service and to offer opportunities to teachers of experience to extend their education. It includes the departments of Education, Physical Education and Home Economics, and it offers both graduate and under- graduate work. Course schedules are arranged to meet the convenience of both full-time and part-time students. By attending evening and summer classes teachers in the schools of Washington and the vicinity may complete all the requirements for a degree wi thout giving up their posi- tions. The School of Education has done much to further the advancement of American teachers and administrators. Practical experience in the School of Education 17 , SCHOOL OF PHARMACY Future pharmacists at work In 1867 the present School of Pharmacy was founded as tli e National College of Pharmacy by the Apothecaries’ Association of the District of Columbia, ll opened up its doors in 1872 and then in 1906 became affiliated with The George Washington University, The School of Pharmacy is accredited by the American Council on Pharmaceutical Education as a class “A” school and is also a member of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, Only a few blocks away the student of Pharmacy has at his dis- posal The American Institute of Pharmacy with its pharma- ceutical museum, library and research laboratories.

It is a charter member of the Association of American Law Schools, and is approved by the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar of the Ameri- can Bar Association. The location of the Law School in the nation s capital presents a unique opportunity for observa- tion and study of federal agencies. As a result, the study of law takes on added meaning. At the present time, holders ol baccalaureate degrees from more than three hundred colleges and universities come from the forty-eight states, the territories and several foreign countries to comprise the student body. 20 SPECIAL DIVISIONS DEAN WARREN HEED WEST DEAN ELMER L, KAY5ER DEAN MITCHELL D REESE DIVISION OF SPECIAL STUDENTS The Division of Special Students, which was established in 1944, is made up of those students who wish to qualify for degree candidacy The courses in the schedule are those required in the divisions of the University of which the special student wishes to become a member when the requirements are completed. Upon the satisfactory completion of require- ments, with the maintenance of the necessary quality point index, the student may transfer to that division. An extensive advisory program is used in the Division in an effort to help the student as much as possible. After each semester, letters are sent to the students, calling them to a con- ference to discuss their individual problems An increasing number of students each year are transferred to the school of their choice. THE DIVISION OF UNIVERSITY STUDENTS The Division of University Students was established in 1930. In this Division are registered adult students who wish to undertake University courses either for credit or as auditors but who are not interested in working toward degrees in this University. University students may be transferred, at request, to another college or school of the University upon complying with the regulations of the specific college or school to which they wish to he transferred. COLLEGE OF GENERAL STUDIES The College of General Studies was established in 1950 as an addition to the adult educa- tion program and includes an off-campus division, an on-campus division, and the Division of Community Services. The College of General Studies is represented in such places as the Loudoun County Virginia Community College; the Red Stone Arsenal, Huntsville, Ala- bama; the Pentagon; Langley Air Force Base; and the Patuxent Naval Air Station. The Counseling Center and Beading Clinic of the University are also included as a part of this new r est enterprise. 21 c TAKE SENIORS T XJOATHE TO BID FAREWELL, WE OUR LEAVES.” Pericles Act II E N I O R S First Row: JAMES R .

One of the principle aims of the organization is to keep abreast of the recent developments in pharmacy. The group is benefited by the social contacts with professional pharmacists afforded its members. Among the activities of the Washington Chapter is the publication of a newspaper for the pharmacists of the city, and the awarding of a scholarship in pharmacy at the University each year to an outstanding graduate of a District High School. Speakers are asked into the regu- lar business meetings and do much to add to the interest and vitality of the organization, ALPHA ZETA OMEGA KAPPA PSI Kappa Psi is a professional pharmaceutical fraternity whose members must be enrolled in accredited schools of pharmacy and must have complied with the requirements set forth by Kappa Psi and the college of pharmacy they attend. The p urpose of this group is to conduct a fraternal organization for the mutual benefit of its members and the profession of pharmacy. Meetings are held twice a month and a dinner-dance is given at the end of each year in honor of the graduating members. First Row: F. Cowan (president), C, Luley. Second Row: R, Foate, J, Wood, W.

The Engineers ' Council is the representative body of the students of the School of Engineering, The membership of the 1954-55 Council is composed of ihe societies and fraternities, ASME, ASCE, A I EE. IRE. Theta Tau and Sigma Tau, two delegates from ihe freshman class, the treasurer of the Mecheleciv magazine and ihe house manager of the Davis-Hodgkins House. T he Council this year has accomplished a revision of their constitution. Under the new constitution, the council is a more representative body, draw- ing membership from each of the classes in engineering as well as from the societies and fraternities. This new plan goes into effect in May of 1955. The Council also publishes the Mecheleciv , annually presents the University with a Christmas tree, collects money for underprivileged children at Christ- mas, and sponsors the Engineers ' Banquet and Ball in the spring. In addition the Council serves as a liaison bod) between the students and faculty of the School of Engineering and a coordinating board for the societies and fraternities.

Sigma Tau Fraternity is the national engineering academic honor society at The George Washington University. The society was founded in Lincoln, Nebraska on February 22. 1904 for the purpose of recognizing scholastic and professional achievement and to provide service to engineering education, Xi chapter was founded at The George Washington University April 18, 1921 and is still maintaining the original purposes of the fraternity. Members are selected from those students in the upper third of the junior and senior classes who d emonstrate sociability, practicability and professional achieve- ment Although Sigma Tau is essentially an honorary, it serves the school as a service organization by providing a free tutoring service to all engineering students. SIGMA TAU JOINT BRANCH A. I. E. E. AND I. R. E. The George Washington l niversity Branch of American Institute of Electri- cal Engineers w as founded in 1932, and is open to all interested students who are enrolled in electrical engineering. The student branch of Institute of Radio Engineers attracts particularly those taking the communications option or those interested in electronics. The A1EE-IRE is a joint organization com- posed of students in the department of Electrical Engineering. It is the largest of the three societies in the Engineering School. Both AIEE and IRE hold contests each year for all interested students. The American Institute of Electrical Engineers contest gives award s for papers and is sponsored nationally. The Institute of Radio Engineers contest is strictly for students of the University, F[rst Row: W. Balwanz, N, Ames, M. Brady, H. Brandler (Chairman), AV. Crockett, C, Bogan, l . Rohlfs.

Mecheleciv is a member magazine of the Engineering College Magazines. Associated, an organization composed of the thirty-five leading magazines in the country. The magazine is published to further interest in engineering and University activities both among students and alumni, to present technical articles writ- ten by undergraduate students, and to offer an opportunity for future engi- neers to acquire the skill of technical writing. Illechelecfp MECHELECIV AMERICAN SOCIETY OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERS The American Society of Mechanical Engineers was founded nationally in 1880. and since that time has grown to number over fifty thousand members. One-third of this number are student members of the one hundred thirty-five student branches. The George Washington University Student Branch is com- posed of students in the School of Engineering who are studying for the degree of Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering, Among the aims of the society are the promotion of the art and science of Mechanical engineering, the encouragement of original research, the fostering of engineering education, and the development of practical competence. The engineering student feels that it is important to broaden bis interests into fields other than engineering while he is in school. By means of speakers at monthly meetings who are entertaining as well as educational AS ME carries out these aims. Fik i Row: J. Gmnun, V. Yurow, G. Bier man (diuirman). B. Cruiekshimks, H. Pun .

A professional engineering frater- nity, Theta Tau was founded in 1904 at the University of Minnesota, Gam- ma Beta chapter of Theta Tau was founded at George Washington Uni- versity in 1935. Its requirements are that its members be in the School of Engineering and that they be invited to join by the brothers. The founders of the fraternity felt that some means of developing high standards of professional interest among student engineers were needed, and that an organization which could accomplish this and also unite students in the various fields of engineering with bonds of fraternal friendship would be of value to both the students and the engineering profession. The activities of the fraternity are many. Banquets, dances, smokers, picnics, and an annual Shrimp Feast on Armistice Day provide recreation for the members. First Row: C. Wahher (advisor), P.

Through field trips, the members learn to apply the facts they obtain from textbooks. At regular meetings lec- tures are given by prominent men in civil engineering. The chapter is open to all civil engineering students with a 2.0 av- erage. Annually it gives an award to the student who has contributed the most to ASCE throughout the school year.

Since its organization in 1884, the John Marshall Inn of Phi Delta Phi Legal Fraternity , the oldest professional fraternity in America, has proven to be one of the truly strong and enduring institutions on The George Washington University campus. At present, Marshall Inn has an active membership of approximately sixty students with many members of the University Law School faculty also on an active status. The annual program of fraternity activities includes eight professional meetings featuring prominent local attorneys and leaders in all branches of the Federal government as speakers, three banquets in honor of newly initi- ated members, fall and spring dances, and a summer picnic. Phi Delt;i Phi Barrister Inns, of which there are over fifty in various cities, afford the alumni member a continuing program of fraternal and professional activities. All of Marshall Inn ' s functions have been uniformly well-attended and pleasant occasions of informal companionship with one ' s fellow students and his professors. But most important, participation in Phi Delta Phi activities offers the earnest law student unmatched opportunities for an early awareness of the practical legal problems and techniques not emphasized in the curricu- lum. as well as helpful guidance to a more general understanding of the pro- fession for which he is studying to he a member.

Membership in Delphi is conferred only upon those sorority women who have made outstanding contributions to sorority life at the University in the opinion of their individual sorority and the members of Delphi. This honorary organization ' s purpose is to promote intersorority spirit and increase social life among women of Greek organizations. In fulfilling its purpose, Delphi has a full schedule and many activities necessary for the success of sorority life. Each Spring and Fall Delphi handles rush registration and in an attempt to give the prospective sorority member an idea of campus attire, Delphi sponsors a fashion show. When the rushee ceases to be and the pledge ap- pears this organization issues invitations to all the pledges of all sororities to participate in a pledge workshop. In this workshop the pledges have an op- portunity to discuss the rush system, to understand the advantages of sorority life and to obtain a glimpse of the universality of Greek organizations. Not only does Delphi aid in die orientation of the rushee and pledge but also it sponsors many intersorority exchanges which make die members more aware of the necessity of a panhellenic spirit among the women’s Greek organiza- tions. DELPHI Panhellenic spirit displayed at this Delphi meeting. GATE AND KEY The members of the honorary fraternity. Gate and Key, consist of fraternity men who have made an exceptional contribution to their particular fraternity and to the Greek world as a whole. All new members are nominated by their own fraternity and then are elected by the members of Gale and Key, The announcing of all new members of this organization was one of the high- lights featured at this year’s Homecoming Dance. Other tappings take place not only at the Homecoming Dance, but also at the IFC prom in the Spring. One of the most looked forward to features of Gate and Key is the annual award of the Order of the Lacy Garter, This presentation is also made in the Spring, Gate and Key was founded at The George Washington University and now has rapidly spread to the campuses of other universities and colleges such as the chapter at Maryland University, Pen n State and William and Mary. Gate and Key has long been noted for its good parties, but besides the social part there is an earnest endeavor in ever) member to maintain the ideals of fra- ternity life and to work for the betterment of the fraternity system.

COORDINATING BOARD WOMEN’S 35 BETTY GRAHAM Editor HARRY HU GHES R it s in f ss M a n ngr.r Charlene MrOunakL Photo Editor, Barbara Harvey, Circulation Manager t and Joe Allen, Advertising Manager, look over the 1955 dummy NINETEEN FIFTY-FIVE C H E R R TREE “I shall have so much experience for my pains ’ Beneficial or not, these words from “Othello” became the motto of the Cherry Tree staff as they searched the works of Shakespeare, sat on those innumerable booths, sold ads, or covered Uni- versity events and organizations. The 1955 Cherry Tree is l he product of a staff inexperi- enced but willing to work. Editors started planning the book in die late spring and summer of 1954 and work continued for most of the school year. Though inexperienced, the staff soon got into the swing of things.

JIM SWISHER Business Manager THE HATCHET Whenever you see a mob gathering in the Union on Tuesday with an air of expectancy you know that the cause of this up- roar is because it is publication day for the University Hatchet. The first tiling that a Greek will do is rapidly tear the paper apart until he discovers Hester Healeys Foggy Bottom. A glance at the Sports Page and then all of George Washington ' s ardent students settle down to its serious reading, that is as serious as Max SbulmaiTs column can get. The more intelli- gent will read the editorials, the whimsical will flip to the dr oodles, and finally the hungry will turn to the list of Job Jots as required reading Behind the scenes The Hatchet office is a spot of genial relaxation until Sunday night when all the members of the staff realize that a deadline is due and so whip our University Hatchet into the shape the students find the following Tuesday. All of this gaiety is transformed into our weekly publication and once again G. W students have a newspaper well done and very interesting to read. 88 B. Hix, Sports and R. flings, CO ' News?

With this purpose in mind, the Booster Board organizes pep rallies, parades, cavalcades to away games, and half time entertain- ment, This year Boosters also made an award of a radio to the student who guessed the identity of George and Martha Washington. This presentation was made at the Homecoming pep rally. The Booster hooks which could be bought independent- ly or as part of the Campus Comho entitled each holder to two seats in the Booster section at both football and basketball games. This section is the one which constituted the heart of the cheering section. To add to the fun shakers and colonial flags were distributed at the games to those sitting in t he booster section. Boosters also promoted poster contests and float contests by awarding a cup to the winning sorority and fraternity. In the eyes of the Booster Board this fraternity and sorority had done the most to promote school spirit and enthusiasms. This year Boosters promoted school spirit which was larger and better than ever. To this hard working group the students of The George Washington University offer a big vote of tlianks.

Well-planned entertainment was an important fac- tor in accounting for the success of the affairs, as well as the crowds which filled the first floor of the Student Union. Numerous students joined the social dance club in which Gus Panagos taught the fundamental and advanced steps of rhumba, jitterbug, tango, samba, waltz and fox trot. An opportunity to freely express oneself in modern dance is afforded by the Dance Production Groups Technique, composition and performance are stressed. Top members of the University’s dance group participated in a master lesson in dance given by Louis Horst at Maryland University. A return engagement was paid to Coolidge High School in January when Lillemor Spitzer, assisted by other members of the Dance Production Group, conducted a master lesson in modern dance.

One of the high- lights of the trip was singing the Messiah on Christmas Eve after giving two variety shows that same day. Another experience was singing on a snow truck in a hanger in freezing weather. Then the Troubadors traveled to Hopewell, an isolated spot where no women had been for two years. Finally after a series of flights to numerous other bases the group went back to Pepperilk Newfoundland for a New Years Eve show, and then back to Washington.

INTERFRATERNITY COUNCIL The Interfraternity Council is the coordinat- ing and governing board of the fourteen member fraternities on the George Washington campus. The three main objectives of the In- terfraternity Council are service to member fraternities, service to the University and service to the community and nation. Part of the service to member fraternities is the annual Greek Week celebration starting off with the fraternity officers’ banquet and the officers ' forums. Each night during Greek Week sev- eral chapters hold open houses for the remain- ing fraternities. The annual IFC Sing held at Li sner Auditorium is another feature of Greek Week. The highlight of the GreekWeek cele- bration is the IFC Prom which attracts the largest turnouts of Greeks during the entire year. Part of the University service program this year was the IFC Band Fund Drive. The spirit and cooperation of the Greeks during this drive ensures us a fine band for next year. Comm uni- ty and national service projects include the annual help day program and the continued support of the IFC war orphan, Kim Yung Duk, adopted in 1954. IFC officers Graham King, Jay Howard and George Latimer gather around president Howie Roberts. 137 Fiiilst Row: It. Harvey, J. Gray, P r Reed (president), K. Ready, 1), Henshaw, S.

Junior Panhellenic is organized by the Council with the Vice-president of Panhel acting as supervisor to the pledge representatives. During the spring, the Council sponsors the Panhellenic Sing and the Panhellenic Prom, To promote scholarship among the sororities, Panhel annually awards cups to the chapter with the highest academic aver- ages. Cups are also awarded to the individual members with outstanding scholastic ac h i eve men ts .

Junior Panhellenic is made up of a delegate from each sorority pledge class. Organizing of the Goat Show is the main proj- ect of the council. Composed of delegates from each sorority, the Intersorority Athletic Board strives to further coopera- tion and competition in women’s sports. Planning anrl arranging the various tournaments is the main duty of the board members. The tournaments begin in the early fall and continue through the year in- cluding such sports as volleyball, tennis, basketball, and golf. A cup is awarded for each tournament, and a large rotating cup goes to the sorority which wins or places in the most tournaments during the year.

This is the purpose of the Air Force Reserve Officers Training Corps. Under the direction of Colonel Carl Sivy ter, Director, Division of Air Science, the Uni- versity R.O.T.C unit has shown outstanding achiev e- ment in integrating its program with that of the University, to provide well trained officers as leaders in tomorrow’s Air Force. All cadets attend classes where they are taught subjects that will aid them in their future careers as Air Force officers.

The Organization of the various flights of cadets was headed in the fall by Cadet Richard Hudgins, who was appointed Lieutenant Colonel in the organi- zation. The GiW.lL detachment is divided into squad- rons which are further subdivided into flights. This division enables the cadet to acquaint himself with the administration and operation that is used in the organization of an actual Air Force unit. Further, it gives every advanced cadet an opportunity of as- suming a position of leadership. Among the activities associated with the Division of Air Science of the L niversity is the Arnold Air Society, a national honorary military society for advanced course cadets. The Society was activated at the University in the fall of 1952 and was named in honor of General Carl Spaatz, the first Chief of Stall of the Air Force. Serving as a hub for cadet activities, the Arnold Air Society sponsors social functions, one of which is the annual Cadet Ball. Another national military society, mainly for basic cadets, is the Pershing Rifles, established here in March. 1953, Led by Cadet Major Stewart Mooney, the Pershing Rides maintains expert drill teams and provides social activities for its members.

A REVIEW OF Many times, an unsuccessful season in the won and lost column is looked upon with a bit of satisfaction, the feeling being that “it s not so much who won, but how they played the game ' Intercollegiate athletics not only builds unde- feated teams, national champions and football giants, but also puts together a combination of hustle, determination and fair play, from which emerges perhaps not a constant win- ner hut a team in the true sense of the word — a team pulling together and doing their utmost. Such was the Colonials 1954 gridiron season. Not a vic- torious year by any means, but a successful one; GW wasn ' t a familiar name in the winner’s circle, but the BufT scored first and most often wdien sports fans finally came down to “how the game was played. " With Coach Bo Sherman in his third year at the helm of Colonial football fortunes, GW dug up a whirlwind sched- ule, playing West Virginia. 1953 Sugar Bowl Contestant and Southern Conference Champion; powerful Maryland, who played in the Orange Bowl and was number one in the na- tion as polled by the country’s sports writers; Wake Forest, strong, fast and one of the Atlantic Coast Conference fa- vorites: Pennsylvania. Ivy League perennial favorite; the University of Virginia, always a strong team in the Atlantic Coast Conference and this year studded with new and im- proving material; William and Mary, one of the Southe rn Conference’s better teams; Richmond and VMI, always tough GW opponents; and V PL picked by the national sports writers as “a sleeper. " The Buff, crippled by the loss of All-American Steve Kor- chek and a host of first string linemen, were destined to rely on inexperience in their forward wall coupled with spotty offensive play. Swinging into action a large crop of THE SEASON freshmen and sophomore linemen, the Colonials found that experience is not only the best teacher, but also a powerful gridiron tool. Sherman could call on only one returning regular, center Dick Gaspari, to rebuild his line from tackle to tackle, but the grief ended there as four veteran ends and seven battle-tested backs were on hand to compensate in part for this shortage of experienced linemen. Gaspari, smashing line backer and sixty minute man most of the season, was a power on both offense and defense, Dick teamed with Ed Sa hatch and Boh Sutton, sophomores from Pennsylvania who came to the Buff with brilliant reputations and in part lived up to their press notices. The 225 pound Sakatch w r as a hard man to move in the Colonial forward wall as was Sutton — 200 pounds of dynamite on downfield blocking and a rough customer anywhere on the field. A1 Solo- mon. a senior from Washington, D.C.. moved m midway during the season to a starting berth. Fairly light at 185 pounds, A1 hit very hard and gave the Colonials a big lift on defense with his fine, reliable performance. As tackles went, GW fared very well with Bill McHenry and John Zlamandanis filling the slots adequately. Ziamand- anis. one of the few experienced men in the line, solved many of Sherman ' s problems with his hard hitting style of play; McHenry, a junior who suffered from lack of experience, saw much action and toward the end of the year was shaping into a top-notch tackle. Ed Rutsch and Bill Berry, both fresh- men this year, saw considerable action and should be ready next year for conference honors. On the ends, the Buff found a great deal to rejoice over. Ritchie Gaskell. brilliant pass-receiving end who for two years now has been All Southern Conference, got off to a late start but was as dangerous as ever once he got squared away. 189 Lou Donofrio and an unidentified Colonial bring down a VPI ball ( artier, Ten Ciemniecki stands by just in case help is needed. George Dancu and Par Kober were rough men to tangle with as was rangy Paul Thompson, a sophomore from Maryland, who was a top all-around end all yean With Arnie Tranen and Bob Sturm engineering the GW Splil-T attack the Colonials had good quarterbacking at times. Tranen. a converted halfback, was an excellent passer and gave the Buff a good air attack with his pin point aerials; Sturm, bis reliable ball handling and short aerials spacing the Colonials attack was. along with Tranen, good qu a r ter back i nsu ran ce. Halfbacks Bill Weaver and Ten Ciemniecki, along with rlin Barr. Claude Austin and Lou Donifrio, gave a good account of themselves. One had to like the flashy Ciemniecki as he picked up large chunks of yardage on around end plays; Weaver, a hard hit tiling line plunger, usually picked up good yardage for the Colonials, After the loss of first string Joe Boland in the first game due to an injury, IN orb Danz hi led in as fullback and was one of the brightest lights that shone all year. Dutch was a workhorse, playing sixty minutes a game, and pounding out the big yardage when needed. First on the Colonials slate was powerful Wake Forest. GEORGE WASHINGTON 0; WAKE FOREST 1 1 GEORGE WASHINGTON 14; V M I 16 The scoreboard tells the story as the Buff fail to get that much needed touchdown against Richmond. The Deacons, with experience galore and a more thoroughly conditioned team, nevertheless found the going rough, but with two late touchdowns overcame the stubborn Colonials, 14-0. All day it was GW moving, then fumbling away op- portunities or Wake Forest starting a drive only to be stopped by the defensive strength of the Buff forward wall, out-manned and out -experienced but not out- hustled. Special orchids went to Dick Gaspari who played a bang-up game as a portent of things to come. Standouts for the Deacons were All-American Bob Bartholomew, a block busting tackle, and Joe White, a fine passer and quarterback, VMJ taught the Colonials that the game is never over until the final whistle sounds. Not content to settle for a 14-14 tie. the Colonials elected to gamble on a last second pass by quarterback Arnie Tranen from the Buff 3 yard line. As the final whistle blew. Tranen was smothered by the entire cen- ter of the Keydet line, led by Charlie Byrd, Jerry Kress, Buck Box ley and Bill Miller, for a safety to give VM1 a hard fought victory. 16-14. The Colonials, carrying a ] 4-7 lead into the final quarter, found the Key dels not willing to give up the ghost. After Arnie Tranen punted into the end zone the Keydets marched HO yards on 13 plays with Charles Lavery and Nick Servidio carrying most of the load for the tying score. Tranen ’s passes were a big feature of the day as lie picked up 105 yards via the air ways to spark the Colonial offense, passing 35 yards to Len Ciemniecki for one score. Bill Weaver tallied the other touchdown for the Buff, capping a 65 yard drive with a one yard smash. Then the University of Virginia showed 1 be Colonials a different way to lose a football game. This wasn’t an easy one for llie Buff to drop, the margin of defeat being a mere one point — a missed extra point. Outplaying the Cavaliers at every turn, GW made amends for their fine play by fumbling away the ball four times and having two passes intercepted, handing Virginia one score and giving the Southerners a big push toward the other. And yet with all this assistance, it was the Cavaliers on the short end of a 13-7 count late in the fourth quarter — that is until the Colonials stepped in and gave them the ball on the GW 32 yard line with four minutes to play in the game.

VIRGINIA 13 CAVAL SCOTT STADIUM Weaver, punting from deep in his own territory, got off a poor kick which in turn hit a GW ' player; the ensuing penalty gave Virginia the ball and in six plays the Cavaliers handed the Colonials their third straight defeat of the 1954 season. Reserve quarterback Billy Clarke plunged over from the one to cap the short drive after another reserve, sub halfback Steve H offer, bad reeled off gains of 12 and 13 yards. And then Steve Knowles stepped back in the dusk and quiet of Scott Stadium to add the extra point that spelled victory for Virginia. The following week it was the fourth quarter that heat the Colonials. With it came West Virginia’s power and GW’s fourth straight loss, 13-7. Leading 7-6 in the final period, the Colonials threatened to upset the four touchdown favorite Mountaineers. Most of the afternoon, it had been GW constantly stopping the West Virginia power from scoring; now the Buff had even gone ahead in the third period and the Mountaineers’ Home- coming crowd of 20.000 pleaded with their team to pull the game out. And then it happened! Skinny Saffer neatly sidesteps three would-be lacklers in the William and Mary game. A gang of VP I bail player pull down Skinny Saffer Nine plays after Arnie Tranen had punted on the GW 45, West Virginia had the lead back and with it their reputation and ranking, though dented a trifle. With quarterback Fred Wvant calling nothing but straight power plays up the middle of the Colonial line, magnificent all day long on de- fense. the Mountaineers finally crashed through to score. Next GW travelled up to the Ivy League and the University of Pennsylvania, Playing before the biggest crowd of the year, and in one of America’s largest stadiums, the Colonials finally broke through into the victory column with a spec- tacular 32-27 win. The C Streeters started off like a whirl- wind, getting 20 points before Penn could muster a score. The game was only two minutes and forty seconds old when Richie Gaskell intercepted a Quaker pass and romped 85 yards for his first touchdown of 1954, Eleven minutes later Bill Weaver went off right tackle to cap a 29 yard drive that was featured by Len CiemnieckPs brilliant play on an Arnie Tranen pass. Not content with two scores, the aroused visitors hit pay dirt again when a Tranen pass to Paul Thompson clicked tor 49 yards. With 25 seconds remaining in the half, Penn tallied GEORGE WASHINGTON 32; PENNSYLVANIA 27 GEORGE WASHINGTON 14; W. M. 14 George Dancu gets set to throw- a block which clears the way for Bob Sturm, a six pointer. The second half found Penn in a come back mood and in five minutes the score was 20-13, only a seven point margin for the Colonials, li was Richie Gaskell who provided the spark necessary to win, taking a 37 yard pass from Weaver for a touchdown. From here on in it was touch and go with GW going the furthest and finally winning out in the fourth quarter, 32-27, The Colonials were up to their old tricks against William and Mary. Accustomed in the past this season to giving away football games to the opposition, GW spiked all existing ru- mors to the effect that they had thrown off this none too popular nor prosperous habit for more conventional ways. Handing William and Mary two touchdowns on fumbles, the Colonials had to salvage a tie in the fourth quarter, achieved by a brilliant 52 yard pass play from quarterback Bob Sturm to end Richie Gaskell who had gotten in behind tire defense on the 12 yard line. For GW it was a great second half defensive line that saved the day. Led by Pat Kober, Dick Caspar i and John Ziamandanis, the Colonials’ forward wall was immovable on defense. Offensively it was a different story. Backs like Danz. Giemniecki and Tranen couldn’t break loose for much yard- age as the holes were not open and consequently GW’s rush- mg game was off. The saving power for the Colonials was Mieir B team which outplayed and outhustled the first team considerably; when things got rough it was this swift charging outfit which was thrown into the game and who salvaged the 14-14 tie for GW in the fourth quarter. It was too much Tom Theodose against Richmond. The Spider quarterback did everything right — running, passing, and kicking Richmond to a 7-0 shutout victory. Completely ' ’out-statist iced ' all night, the Richmond club made good their one chance to score. After Arnie Tranen punted from deep in Colonial territory, the men of Richmond, paced by the ever present Theodose. moved smartly from the Buff 46 to the 11. On the next play Theodose swung wide from his single w ing tailback spot and romped the remaining yardage to paydirt. That was the ball game. In front of an ice-bitten Homecoming crovvd at Griffith Stadium, the Gobblers from VPI set down George Washing- ton, 2043, Ritchie Gaskell pulls in the touchdown pass from Bob Sturm which tied up the William and Mary game.

A Vf GEORGE WASHINGTON VPI HOMECOMING Virginia Tech, riddled with Injuries, showed that the passing arm of John Dean could be replaced as fill-in quar- terback Billy Cranwell hurled two tallies and sub halfback Billy Anderson tossed another. VPI clinched the game in the third quarter when halfback Anderson pitched to Petty after a double reverse. The score came after a GW fumble, following the pattern of most of the year. The Colonials outplayed the Gobblers in the second half, scoring twice and dominating the statistics, but a hard hitting scoring punch was lacking, it seemed for awhile the man to “go " for GW was veteran full back Joe Boland, who was put in during the third quarter. Boland crashed across from the twelve only to have the score called back because of a holding penalty, after having almost single handediy moved the ball from GW’s 41. picking up 35 yards in five carries. The ground attack for GW was led by fullback Dutch Danz who [died up 72 yards and Bill Weaver who powered his way across for both of the Colonial scores. The Buff showed a brilliant passing attack with Sturm and Arnie W and M end Riley thwarts an attempted end run by the Colonials. Len Ciemniecki breaks loose for a long gain against William and Mary. Tranen completing 11 out of 21 attempts in spite of the freezing weather. This was the end! It had all begun two months ago against Wake Forest and now the climax had come. Maryland. Iasi year ' s national champions, helped the Colonials finish up their dismal season in defeat to the crushing tune of 48-6. Mighty Maryland, flashing their All-American form so reminiscent of the past two years, was in no mood to ei flier let the determination of the Colonials nor the thick mud of Byrd Stadium get in their way as they prepared for a New Year ' s Day bowl bid in lashing the GW squad unmercifully. Slow starting, the powerful Terps gained momentum in a surging third period scoring spree of 29 points and there- after steamed to their fourth straight victory before 23,000 fans. Only bright spot for the Colonial team was a fourth period touchdown pass from Arnie Tranen to freshman Alike Sommer which spoiled Maryland’s hid for its fifth shutout of the year. The tinge of unsuccess that paints the George Washington 1954 football season is colored with a bright glow of achieve- ment— not one of victory as expressed on the scoreboard in games won and lost, but a victory beyond the gridiron, a triumph in “how the game was played.” GEORGE WASHINGTON 6; MARYLAND 48 SOME HIGHLIGHTS Dick Gasper i accepts watch from Sid Kolker, president of I he Alumni association, as the outstanding Buff footbal l player, A host of Colonials bring down La very, halfback of VMI.

Consistently one of the nation’s ten top teams and the winner of two major college tour- laments; the Colonials lost a heartbreaking over- time thriller to West Virginia in the finals of the Southern Conference basketball tournament. Had it not been for the chipped heel of center Joe Holup and a very long hard season, our boys might have brought home even more laurels. Led by senior captain Corky Devlin and Joe Holup, who both received All-American mention, the Buff won the Steel Bowl tournament, the Richmond tournament, and copped the newly in- augurated Big Three Cup. Their victims included such powerhouses as Duquesne, Wake Forest, Duke, Maryland, and Richmond. Both Joe and Corky were honored by selection on the Southern Conference all star team. Other boys who contrib- uted heavily to the Colonial cause were Joe Petca- vich, Buzzy Ciriello, George Klein, Ed Catino, and Jay Manning. Despite the fact that they lose Devlin, Ciriello, and Catino, next year’s team should again be one of the nation’s powerhouses, with four of the first seven returning, and a fine group of hoys ready to move up from the junior varsity. Although they didn’t win the Southern Confer- ence tournament, the University can he very proud of the fine basketball displayed by the Colonials this jiasl season, and, perhaps, even more trophies may be added to our newly acquired trophy case by next year ' s team. Captain Corky Devlin cooly sinks this twisting layup, despite the efforts of the Wake Forest defenders. Tire close guarding of the Maryland defenders is not enough to keep Corky bottled up. 197 JOE PETCAVICH WASHING!

Captained by Bobbie Ruth Moore, the squad did a remarkable job at the pep rallies and games leading the cheers for the Buff and Blue. Rallies held in the Union brought out unheard of spirit. Members of the squad pictured below are : First Row: Bet tie Kolonia, Bobbie Ruth Moore. Ruth Berry- man. Second Row: Bev Alexander. Sharlie West. Scoots Cowdin. Betsy Silver. BASEBALL Sitting: S.

Despite a disastrous road trip where they lost three straight games, the Buff finished the 1954 baseball season with a very creditable 16-7- J record. The Colonials were again winners of the area championship, beating both Georgetown and Maryland twice. A tie with Maryland was the only blot on their area record. Led by Steve Korcheck. who was the most valuable player on the team for the second straight year, the team barely missed winning the Southern Conference Cham- pionship. Headlining a fine pitching staff were Steve Bank. Bob Frederick and Stan Walowac. Another major factor for the team’s success was the fact they had five hitters who batted 300 or better. Jimmy Hill, Jerry Papperella. Paul Stroup. Bobby Heed and Korcheck were the members of this select group. Three GW vessels warming up for the Frostbite Regatta.

RIFLE Tiie Rifle Team consists of five members all of whom are selected from the Rifle Club by coach Whitney Minckler. Prior to the first match, late in J ami any even member of the club fires at the rifle range three days a week. Each individual records his score, and Coach Minckler picks the men with the highest overall scores to represent G. W, in the various matches. The hoys who arc selected must be proficient in the three neces- sary rifle positions: these are Prone. Standing, and Kneeling. The George Washington Rifle Team consistently com piles a fine overall record, including several years in which they ranked first in the country. Under the fine coaching of Mr. Minckler l lie re is no reason to believe why next years team will not continue this fine record. P. A. Darnels. Staniunc: W. M inkier (coach). A. $avagi C. Rahdiensky.

Practices took place at the Kenwood Country Club as did all the home matches. Several out of town trips were made to complete the schedule which was harder this year than in previous ones. However, interest in the sport has been built up and golf is becoming one of the more important sports at the University. TENNIS Despite the fact that there were only three members of last years team returning, the Colonials had perhaps the best material in the history of tennis at this school; an exceptionally fine group of freshmen and sophomores were responsible for this strange event. The highlights of the season were the four day trips to play various Virginia colleges, and the southern conference tournament. The returning let ter men were Senior Arthur Cohen, and Juniors Mickey Bo tele r and Bill Russell. The newcomers to the Colonial courts are John Bouquet, John Perry, Robert Schmitz, Herbie Rappaport, and Ken Garrison all sophomores; and freshmen Bernie Steiner and Billy Wilson. TRACK Coached by former assistant football coach Howard (Frosty) Bowers, a small group of Colonial thinclads again attempted to build track to the stature of a major sport here at G.W.; however, the high hopes they had were not fulfilled. The results of the meets showed that the Buff trackmen were not ready for big-time college competition; Roanoke, William and Mary, and Richmond soundly defeated the Buff men of the cinders. Lenny Ciemniecki and Phil Deturk were the only letter winners from the squad. Other regular participants were Richie Gaskell, Arlin Barr, Ahmed Shah, Ed Jaffee, Earl McLean, Jim Rudin. Joe Holup, John Ziarnandanis, and Bob Sturm. 205 Sian Walowac prepares to throw a haymaker in liis intra mural boxing match against Roy Schlemmer. INTRA MURALS Joe Boland of SX goes up for two points in the championship game against Phi Alpha, VINCENT J. DeANGELlS n tram u rat Direct or Under the direction of Vincent De Angel is, the George Washington Intramural Department again had a full year in every sport. Vinnie. who assumed the job of Intramural Director in February, 1953, instituted a new type of intramural trophy this year, the sportsman- ship trophy. This award goes to the team which shows l he best sportsmanship, both in team play and spectator activity. Able assistance was given to Vinnie this year by his student assistants Pat Reed, Ed Jaffee and Chris McAvoy. The Department offers thirteen sports to the male stu- dents, considered on the basis of major and minor sports. Football, baseball, basketball, track, swimming and boxing are the major sports, while foul shooting, ping- pong, bowling, wrestling, badminton and volleyball con- stitute the minor sports. Team trophies are presented to the winning organization of each sport at the end of the year. Outstanding individual trophies for such sports as ping-pong, swimming, golf, bowling, foul shooting, wrestling, and boxing are also given. An intra- mural trophy goes to the organization with the best overall record. Last year, despite the fact that they did not win a single major sport. Phi Alpha Fraternity was the winner of the All-University trophy by virtue of second place finishes and victories in several minor sports. Roy Schlemmer walked off with the outstanding intramural athlete award for the third Lime in four years. In football. Phi Alpha defeated Sigma Alpha Epsilon 6-0 to w in the c hampionship. This was sweet revenge for the Phi Alphas who had lost the championship in the final seconds to SAE the previous year. Outstanding players of the league were Lenny Weinglass and Herb Kushner, Phi Alpha: Cecil Charles. SAE: Roy Schlem- mer, DTD: and Leeds Schell ingcr. Phi Sigma Kappa. The intramural basketball crown went to Sigma Chi who defeated Phi Alpha 63-62 in a thrilling contest. Leading the winners were Joe Boland and Dick Gaspari. More teams participated in basketball than in any other sport, with eighteen teams entering. Behind the consistently good pitching of George Dancu, Sigma Chi swept through the softball league. Topping their season was an 8-1 swamping of the pre- vious winner, Phi Alpha, in the championship game. Led by the devast ing spiking of Corky Devlin, Sigma Chi added another trophy to their growing collection in winning the volleyball championship. Phi Alpha was again the victim of the Sig power. Although Dick Dodd of Sigma Nu amassed an amazing total of twenty-six points, it was not enough to keep a well rounded Welling Hall team from winning the track meet. Dodd won the 220 and 440 yard dashes, anchored his team to a win in the medley relay and tied for first in the high jump. Roy Schlemmer, DTD, accepts trophy from Dean Kayser as the outstanding intramural athlete. In the remaining sports. Delta Tau Delta again took swimming and badminton; Sigma Chi captured the bowling trophy; ping-pong, golf and boxing were won by Phi Sigma Kappa; wrestling went to the strong men from Welling Hall; and Phi Alpha took foul shooting. The individual trophies went to John Terauds for ping-pong: Bob Goldstein, foul shooting; Liam Leong, badminton; Stan Walowac, boxing: Jim Matthews, bowling; and Gus Panagos, golf. In a final resume of the year, one cannot overlook the fact that over one thousand men participated in in- tramural sports, perhaps more than any other year in the history of the school. The intramural department supplies an opportunity for relaxation and enjoyment, while developing good spirit and sportsmanship.
