The Panhellenic Council of The George Wash- ington University is an administrative, legislative and judiciary body composed of the Panhellenic delegates, one from each sorority on campus, and the presidents from all eleven sororities. The Council ' s main aim is to promote cooperation ' among the sororities and intersorority spirit. Thus sorority activities are planned in a well bal- anced program. The first big project is the organization of rushing and membership selec- tion. Then after pledging, the Junior Panhellenic is organized. Other functions include the Panhel Sing and Prom, two main events of the Spring Term, and an annual award to the chapter and pledge class with the highest scholastic average. Panhel also explains rushing to prospective rushees and lays out the regulations for rushing. 50 The Junior Panhellenic Council is made up of delegates from the pledge classes of all Univer- sity sororities. It was organized by and works with the Senior Panhellenic Council. The Council serves to promote intersorority relations, to uphold high scholarship among pledges, to cooperate with the University Ad- ministration and to find answers for any ques- tions which sorority pledges may have. The main project of Junior Panhellenic is the annual Goat Show, in which the pledge classes of all University sororities present short skits. The skits are based around a central theme chosen by the Council, and the Goat Show Cup is awarded to the winning pledge class. Admission for the Show includes one can of food per per- son, which is given to charity by Junior Panhel- lenic. The Intersorority Athletic Board is composed of delegates from each women’s fraternity on campus and an executive board. The function of the Board is to plan and direct sports tournaments for campus sororities. The tournaments held are tennis, bridge, volley ball, table tennis, badminton, bowling, golf, and swimming. The Board presents an individual trophy to the winner of each of these eight tournaments, and awards a large cup to the group with the highest standing at the end of the year. The trophies were presented by the president of the Board at the Women ' s Athletic Associations annual Spring Sports Awards Banquet.

The Council is made up of delegates from all of the campus fraternities The purpose of t he Interfraternity Council is to serve the individual fraternities in its membership, the Univer- sity, the community and the nation. In the role of the governing body of all fraternity activities, the Council regulates and enforces rush rules, settles any questions on pledging or initiation requirements and designates the rules applicable to Intramurals The main event in the Council ' s year is Greek Week, which is sponsored and planned by the organization. This Week serves to strengthen interfraternity friendship and understudies. The start of the annual Greek Week is the fraternity officers’ banquet, followed by forums which are offered for fraternity officers. Open Houses are held by the campus fraternities during this period, to which mem- bers of the other groups are invited. The two main high- lights of Greek Week are the annual I.F.C Sing and I.F.C, Prom. At the Sing, fraternities compete for the winner ' s trophy with two selections, including one fraternity song The Prom is a much-anticipated spring formal, which may be attended by all fraternity men at the University INTER-FRATERNITY COUNCIL Howie Roberts receives the I PC Outstanding Delegate award First Row: Dr, D.

The members are chosen by the sororities and by the active chapter of Delphi. Requirements for mem- bership In the honorary are outstanding contributions to sorority life on campus and to individual Greek organiza- tions. The purpose of Delphi Is to promote intersorority spirit and to contribute to the social life among Greek women. Delphi ' s calendar Is filled with many activities which are indispensable to the success of University sorority life. In- cluded in the organization ' s yearly program is the han- dling of both Fall and Spring rush registration. At the Big Sisters ' Tips n Tea with Topnotchers, " Delphi spon- sors a fashion show for the benfit of new women stu- dents. After the Fall pledging date, Delphi provides a pledge workshop. At this time the rush system, the universality of Greek organizations, and the advantages of sorority life are explained and are discussed by new pledges. Delphi arranges and promotes intersororlty exchanges between Greek groups throughout the school year. These affairs usually take place during the lunch hour and may be held by an entire chapter or by a pledge class. The functions are important to the development of pan- hellenic spint and friendship among Greek organizations. 86 Gate and Key honors fraternity men on campus who have made outstanding contributions to the Greek world as a whole and to their individual fraternity chapters The purpose of the organization and the responsibility of each member is to uphold the ideals of fraternity life and to work toward the improvement of the entire fraternity sys- tem.

C H 19 5 6 E R R Y TREE The 1 956 CHERRY TREE is the end result of a lot of work, but also a lot of fun. Planning of the book started in the spring and summer of I 955 and the carrying through of the plan continued for most of the school year; Let s have something different " was the magic phrase and so we nave tried to change a few sections of the book. We even stuck a cherry tree in the CHERRY TREE, The third floor of the Student Union Annex became the hideout for putting through these plans. Many an afternoon and evening was spent there pouring over the yearbook dummy with one eye on the deadline schedule and the other on a calendar. There were many booths to sit on, ads to be sold, and University functions to be covered, but there was always the fun of meeting new people and getting things underway. Then somehow, there wasn’t any- thing to do but wait for the books to be delivered. So we feel it was all worth It and we hope you en|oy the 1956 CHERRY TREE, 96 Peggy Nichols and Norm Cohen at work on the 1956 CHERRY TREE, STAFF PEGGY NICHOLS , , NORMAN COHEN . . ROGER SPITZER . .

Why the eager looks of expectancy written on the faces of the crowd in the Union on Tuesday morning? Ask any loyal red-blooded student. Why, Tuesday is the morning The Hatchet appears. In the weekly student newspaper, all the news of the past week, the present day and the coming month is printed. Sports fans may follow the Buff and Blue teams in all sports (including women ' s tournaments) on the last pages of The Hatchet. The middle pages include editorials on current campus subjects and various feature stories, which range from tales of foreign countries to interviews with student leaders. Who is being seen where, with whom, when and sometimes why: those are the subjects dealt with by Hester Heale in the ever-popular " Foggy Bottom " column, read by social-minded Colonials. The Hatchet is published by the Board of Editors, the Sub-Editors and the Senior and Junior Staffs. The paper ' s offices are found on the mam floor of the Student Union Annex. These offices are the scene of frantic activity on Saturdays and Sundays, the days when the paper is made ready for the press. But the result of such activity is a newspaper which almost yearly receives an All-American First Class Honor rating from the national Associated Collegiate Press.

All organizations on campus were invited to sponsor a candidate for the honors. Each of the sponsoring organizations collected as much cloth- ing as possible and filled gaily decorated boxes with all types of clothing. The candidates who had the most cloth- ing in their boxes won the contest, and the clothing was sent to needy people in Korea. This organization meets bi-monthly in Woodhull House. The Sailing Association, or Sailing Club, as It is known to many students, is a co-educational social and recre- ational group. The main function of the Association is sailing, for fun or in competition; but the organization also holds social events and business meetings. The aims of the Sailing Association are to promote better seamanship, to encourage greater appreciation for sailing as a recreation and a sport and to engage in intercollegiate competition. The club is open to both experienced students and to beginners in sailing. An in- struction course In the art of sailing is offered to inexpe- rienced members of the group. The organization ' s sailing programs are held every weekend, although business meetings are attended only bi-monthly. The Association ' s main event for the year is the Frostbite Regatta in December. After this annual event, the group sponsors the Frostbite Ball, the yearly dance held by the Association. 10 Sailing Club members make a last minute check before a Saturday morning practice, THE SAIL ING ASSOCIATION First Row: H.

NEWMAN CLUB Mary Dahls+edt, president, conducts a regularly scheduled meeting of the Newman Club. The Newman Club unites Catholic students at the University in firmer faith, greater fellowship and exten- sive service to the student body as a whole During the annual Religion-ln-Life Week, the Club ac- tively participates in the planning and execution of the Week ' s religious services, discussion groups, social events and other programs. This week, which is set aside for the consideration of religion, usually occurs at the Thanksgiving season. The Club ' s Christmas party successfully ends the year ' s activities for the group; but their active schedule is re- sumed at the beginning of the following year. The organi- sation meets weekly in either business, social or cultural meetings. The focal point of the Newman Club ' s social activity during the year is the annual University Celebrity Capers. At this dance, which is held in the late spring, the Club honors those ten students whom the members feel are the most outstanding senior students in the Univer- sity. The ten Celebrities are chosen on the basis of their contribution to campus activities, and to the student body through their service to the school. Through the fellowship of its members, the Newman Club provides for Catholic students a better understand- ing of their creed. Through its religious services, the Club offers a deeper faith to its members. 116 The B ' nai B rith Hillel Foundation provides religious, cultural and social activities for Jewish University stu- dents. The Foundation ' s yearly calendar is filled with many events in these three fields. The highlight of the social side of Hillel ' s activity is the annual all-University " Ball o ' Fire. " At this popular mid- winter dance, the school ' s " Apollo " is crowned. Many other dances are held during the year, as well as parties, coffee hours and lunches in Hillel ' s own snack bar. Some of the educational and cultural services offered by the Foundation are lectures, forums, films, courses in Hebrew, art, crafts and both drama and choral groups. Members benefit from discussion groups on current top- ics In all fields, Hillel ' s Interest also turns to the field of journalism. The Hillel Commentary, the organization ' s newspaper, Is pub- lished by the members. Each year the Foundation spon- sors a school-wide creative writing contest, and prizes are presented to the authors of the winning entries In the three divisions of the competition: essay, short story and poetry. As a group, the Hillel Foundation holds services on the Sabbath Day and on High Holidays. In this way, as in the group ' s charity drives, the values of religion, charity and fellowship are realized by the members of Hillel.

Cresweil. Sigma Tau t founded at the University of Nebraska in 1904, is an academic achievement society recognizing scholastic ability among engineering students, Xi chapter at The George Washington University maintains the academic honor and professional service of Sigma Tau Xi chapter, founded at the University in 1921, is com- posed of members selected from those students in the upper third of the junior and senior classes who demon- state sociability, practicability and professional achieve- ment. Aside from its own functions, Sigma Tau engages in many activities designed to help the student body, the school, and the University. Of primary interest is Sigma Tau s counseling service, designed to assist any student who is experiencing difficulty in any of his engineering courses. Recognizing the importance of making the scholastic hurdle of the freshman year, Sigma Tau annual- ly cites the Sophomore engineering student who, during his freshman year, has attained the highest grade average in his engineering courses 125 Just as the study of electrical engineering is integrated in college, so are the two student branches of the engi- neering societies In this field. Although the two societies are integrated in name In the Joint Branch, a student may join either one or both of them. The A.I.E.E. was founded in 1 884, and has as its objec- tive the advancement of the theory and practice of Elec- trical Engineering, and the maintenance of a high profes- sional standing among Its members. The I.R.E. was founded when the field of radio was still in Its Infancy. It is devoted to the advancement of the theory and prac- tice of communications, electronics and allied fields. Throughout the year, the Joint Branch Invites speakers from government and industry to talk on various subjects in the field of electrical engineering. The program is often varied by movies or inspection trips to nearby Industrial plants. In order to further interest in the field, both the A.I.E.E. and the I.R.E, hold contests for all interested students who wish to test their technical knowledge of electrical engineering by entering a quiz contest given by the I.R.E,, or the paper contest sponsored by the A.I.E.E.

Mecheleciv Magazine is the engineering students journal of The George Washington University, Through- out the year, its pages feature student technical articles and prize papers, articles dealing with the engineering profession, and news of the engineering school and its alumni, Mecheleciv has a circulation of 2400, and is published six times a school year under the sponsorship of the Engl- neers ' Council, The staff of Mecheleciv is composed en- tirely of undergraduate students, who attend to the en- tire publication of the magazine except for printing, Mecheleciv, the only nationally affiliated student pub- lication in the University, is a member magazine of the Engineering College Magazines Associated. The magazine is published to further interest In engi- neering and University activities both among students and alumni, and to provide an opportunity for students to gain experience in the fields of publication and techni- cal writing. 127 The G,W.LL Student Branch of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers is sponsored by the Washington section of the A.S.M.E, and is open to students interested m the field of mechanical engineering. The A.S,M,E. was founded nationally in 1880, and since that time has grown to number over fifty thousand members, one third of which are student members of the one hundred thirty-five student branches. The program of the A.S.M.L meetings is as diversified as the field of mechanical engineering itself. Through a progressive professional program, the student gains an introduction to the profession of engineering as well as having the opportunity to meet many top men in his field, who are invited to speak on a variety of subjects through- out the year. The monthly magazine and the up to date movies shown at meetings keep the student informed of Ine latest developments in mechanical engineering. To encourage original research and study on the part of students, the branch sponsors a yearly prize paper con- test which is open to all undergraduate engineering stu- dents Members of ASMt plan for the future. a. s.

W. campus by the Gamma Beta Chapter. Theta Tau saw its birth at the University of Minnesota in 1904, and has since grown to its present size of twenty-three chapters in engineering schools and colleges throughout the country. The purposes of Theta Tau, Incorporated by its found- ers, are to help develop a high standard of professional interest among student engineers and to unite students in the various fields of engineering with strong bonds of fraternal friendship. Therefore, its membership require- ments are such that Theta Tau does not compete with either social fraternities or engineering societies. In 1935, the Gamma Beta Chapter of Theta Tau was founded at The George Washington University. Each year the chapter holds two Invitation Balls and Banquets for its new members. In addition to these two main events, other parties and picnics are held throughout the year. Membership Into Theta Tau is obtained by invitation only. Prospective members are selected from engineering students in good standing and meeting the unanimous approval of the brothers First Row: J. Sell, W. Stamper, T. H. Birmingham, President, C.

The American Society of Civil Engineers, the oldest engineering professional society in America, was founded in 1852 to differentiate Civil or Civilian Engineers from Military Engineers The G. W. Student Chapter, organ- ized in 1923, promotes a program designed to meet the interests of civil engineering students. So great and diversified is the field of civil engineer- mg, that the A.S.C.E. attempts to present to the student a glimpse of each segment, along with the opportunity to discuss these fields first-hand with practicing engi- neers. Included in the program for the year were a host of interesting subjects, presented through speakers and field trips. Highlighting the agenda for the year were re- vision of the Chapter Constitution and initiation of the annual joint meeting on professional registration. To recognize professional achievement, the chapter gives an annual award to the student who has contrib- uted the most to the A.SG.E. throughout the year 129 The Preamble of the Constitution of the Student Bar Association reads: Its purposes are to further scholastic attainment, to develop a spirit of brotherhood among members and to enhance the reputation of the Law School of The George Washington University C This organization includes in its membership every stu- dent enrolled in the Law School.

The Effective Speaking Program, exemplified by PAD Toastmasters, reached a pinnacle in aiding Law School students to improve what t$ perhaps their most effective weapon — their public speaking abilities. Two successful dinner-dances and a summer picnic gave the members and their famliies a chance to social- ize, outside the usual fraternity meetings The chapters professional speaker program featured such guest speakers as Associate Justice Tom Clark of the Supreme Court, Chief Judge Bolitha J, Laws of the Court of Appeals, Prof. Herman Orentlicher of the GW Law School faculty and prominent members of the local bar. The chapter was also one of the motivating forces in the formation of the Inter-Law Fraternity Council in the Law School,. Although a large number of members was lost through graduation and entry into active practice of law H success- ful rush programs in each semester went a long way to- wards maintaining the membership at a high level 133 Congenial students of the Law are united in Woodrow Wilson Senate of Delta Theta Phi, one of the country ' s outstanding law fraternities.

AIR FORCE ROTC The initials " AFROTC " stand for the Air Force Reserve Officer ' s Training Corps. Histor- ically, the ROTC became a part of the educa- tional scene as the democratic way to prepare citizens in time of peace for military leadership in time of war. It was the logical outgrowth of the traditional concept of the minuteman, fac- ing the frontier, always ready to defend the struggling young republic. Today, through the study of Air Science.

Cadets attend classes as usual, but there has been one major change. For the first time, the ROTC Program is being offered to Co-Eds, who receive the same training as other cadets both in the classroom and on the drill field. In addition to its academic functions, the Air Force ROTC assists the University in many of its extra-curricular activities. For example, it pro- vided uniformed escorts for the Homecoming Queen candidates at the Homecoming Pep Rally. To aid the cadets in the development of lead- ership, there are two national organizations con- nected with the Corps of Cadets. One is the Carl Spaatz Squadron of the Arnold Air Society, which is an honorary Air Force society for Ad- The ROTC ' L ' ' 4 jtWfc k.

Serving as a hub for cadet activities, the Arnold Air So- ciety sponsors many social functions, one of which is the annual Cadet Ball. Also, there is the Pershing Rifles, which was organized in March, 1952. The main function of the Pershing Rifles Is to give recognition to basic cadets who show exceptional leadership ability. It Is the Pershing Rifles crack drill team whi ch has brought much favorable comment to the Corps of Cadets. The team has performed in many affairs including the Cherry Blossom Pa- rade, the Apple Blossom Parade, the Bethesda Christmas parade and at the detachment’s for- mal reviews. Several trophies awarded to this unit can be attributed to the efforts of the Per- shing Rifles. In addition to the above, there is the Rifle Team which participates in many inter-school meets during the school year. Another organiza- tion is the Flying Sponsors, an honorary girls unit, that gives active and wholehearted assistance to all military and social functions of the Corps of Cadets. Some of the Sponsors ' more notice- able achievements have been curtains for the cadets ' lounge, silk scarves for the drill team, and monthly " coke " parties, with members of the Cadet Group.

Colonial fans might have seen a bowl- bound eleven this year r Off to their best start in many seasons, the Colonial grldders chalked up victories in five of their Initial si clashes, but lost the last three encounters, two of these to top teams in the country. The accent was on defense this season — that plus the elimination of that last quarter foldup which cost them so dearly last year. With a staunch line and secondary, the Buff held opposing elevens to one TD or less in six of their nine contests; tough West VEr- glnla could score only two second half touchdowns while highly rated Maryland scoied only three. The University of Florida did, however, manage four touchdowns against the stubborn Colonial defense, but three came in the second half against a trip-weary, demoralized team. The rest of the Buff ' s gridiron schedule for 1955 was rounded out by the University of Pennsylvania, which yearly plays the tough- est football schedule in the East: VPI, one of Virginia ' s finest football teams; VM! and William and Mary, two top Southern Conference Schools; Virginia, Atlantic Coast Conference squad which GW had beaten only once in fourteen games; and Richmond, one of the Southern Conference ' s better teams, A special note should be written about Coach " Bo M Sherman, who in his fourth year turned out a winning ball team. Named Southern Conference Coach of the Year, Coach Sherman was ably assisted by line coach, Ray Hanken, who did a brilliant job In training the Colonials ' great line this season. A great deaf of the Buff ' s success can be traced to Hanken ' s brilliance. His de- fensive maneuvers baffled GW opponents most of the time and spearheaded several Colonial victories. Two Buff performers were chosen All-Southern Conference for their outstanding performanc es this season — sophomore sensation Mike Sommer and junior Paul Thompson. Sommer, the speedy left halfback, was the Colonials ' top ground-gainer, top scorer, and the nation’s number one punt returner. Right-end Thompson was the favorite target of Colonial passers, and his great defensive work drew raves from opposing coaches. The Colonials opened up their season with an impressive 25-6 win over VM I before 8,000 fans. Undampened by a steady down- pour, the Colonials rolled up 235 yards rushing while passing only twice during the game. GW defenders intercepted three Keydet passes, two more than VMj could complete all day, and held them to a total of 109 yards gained. The Colonials opened the scoring when they took the opening kickoff, and, with Looney mixing his plays well, marched down to the VMI two. From here Weaver punched it over. Midway In the third period, Mike Sommer fielded a Keydet punt on his own sixteen and sprinted 84 yards up the sidelines to put the Colonials ahead 13-0. Late in the third 1 period Football, football, who ' s got the football? Your guess is as good as ours! 175 8q Austin intercepted a Keydet pass on the GW 25 and traveled 67 yards to the VMI 8 before being stopped.. Looney then went over for the score. A blocked punt led to the lone Keydet score midway in the fourth period, and the Colonials countered late in the period as Sommer carried five straight times. Sturm then scored from the one and the game ended with GW ahead 25 6, The Colonials made it two straight when they blanked Virginia 13-0 before J 3,000 at Virginia ' s Scott Stadium for their second win in the fifteen game series. Paul Thompson forced a poor Cav- alier pass mid ' way through the second period and Bo Austin picked ft off on the Virginia 43 and traveled the distance un- molested. Early in the fourth period guard Ray Murray stole the ball and raced down to the Cavalier 10 before he was stopped. A pass interference penalty put the ball on the one and Sturm rammed it over. The Colonials once again picked off three op- posing aerials. The Buff stepped a little out of class when they traveled South and toot on the University of Florida ' s Hurricanes. Minus I he services of Dick Gaspari and Bill Weaver and able to use Thomp- son only sparingly, the Colonials played an inspired first half only to see the well-geared Florida offense shift into high in the last half. Before 17.204 suntanned fans in the Gator Bowl, GW ' s still de ' fense yielded nothing to the Gators in the first period. Then mid- way through the second period a recovered fumble led to the lone Florida first-half score. Florida took the second half kickoff and marched 62 yards to paydirt to increase their lead to J 4-0. After an exchange of punts the Gators took over on the 18 yard line. Four plays later speedy halfback Jim Rountree was off 66 yards for the third Florida score. The Colonials made their best move early in the fourth period before an interception ended the threat. St urm ' s passing was the high note for the Colonials as he hit on 7 out of I 3. Anxious to get back to their winning ways the Colonials traveled to historic Franklin Field where before 13,178 the Buff licked Penn 25-6 in the mud. After an exchange of punts following the opening kickoff, the Colonials took possession of the pigskin on the Quaker 32, Three plays later Weaver scored from the four. Early in the second period Sturm hit Dancu with an 13-yard pitch for the Colonials lone aerial score of the year Guard Ray Murray ' s interception " Come to poppa, little football, " says Mike Sommer as on to one of Bob Sturm ' s long aerials he latches Out of sight, out of mind? No, just out of bounds! Mike Sommer, almost away for six points, gets bumped out of bounds. of e Frank Rispel pass led to the Calonails third store early in the fourth period and a ten yard [aunt by Sommer capped a 24 yard drive. After Penn scored on the ensuing kickoff the Buff retaliated with a 65 yard march of their own. Looney ' s 45 yard spurt down the right sideline culminated the drive. At William and Mary ' s Cary Field 4.500 spectators watched rhe I nd Ians and the Colonials battle to a 0-0 stalemate before the Buff rolled up sixteen last period points. This was the contest vhere the Colonial depth made the difference. Entering the game in the third period, an eager band of reserves piled up a lO-point lead before turning the game back to the regulars to complete the job. With Saffer and Looney pacing the surge, the Colonials moved from their own 43 with Looney finally going over on the keeper play from the one. On. the next series of plays Looney pilfered an Al Grieco pass on the W M 42 and the Colonials were in business again. Saffer and Looney took the Buff to the twelve before the Indians stiffened. Clay pool then coolly stepped back and booted a 17-yard field goal. The regulars came back on t h e scene, and with Sommer grinding out three straight first downs behind great blocking, the Colonials moved to the Indians 19. Mike then spurted the remaining distance to sew up the ball game. Playing what many experts called their best game of the season, the underdog Colonials came from behind to upend VPI 13-7 be- fore 10,000 spectators at Miles Stadium. In containing the spec- tacular Dickie Beard, GW handed VPI their first conference loss since 1953, Beard did shake loose on one play, a 25 yard scamper in the second period for the lone Gobbler score. From 22 yards out in the third period Mike Sommer scored one of his five TDs this sea- son. The score v as the culmination of a drive which started eleven plays earlier with the second half kickoff. Then with four and a half minutes left, the second stringers once STOP THAT MAN! Mike Sommer sprints through the entire VPI secondary on his way to a 78-yard touchdown.

A Homecoming crowd of over 20,000 enthusiastic rooters watched the Colonials play a highly favored West Virginia eleven t o a standstill before succumbing to a fourth period score and drop a 13-7 contest. With the Colonial defense stalling the na- tion ' s top offensive unit, the Buff put on a dazzling show of fight- ing spirit and almost pulled out the upset of the year before an Intercepted pass on the Mountaineer five ended all GW hopes In the waning minutes of the game. Mike Sommer stunned the crowd when he took a Sturm handoff early in the first period, cut off tackle and with a tremendous burst of speed traveled 89 yards to paydirt to give the Colonials a 7-0 lead. Held for too long, the Mountaineers finally got going. With Bob Moss, Joe Marconi, and Larry Krutko biting telling chunks of yardage the Colonials gave up two second half TD ' s, one on a 98 yard sustained drive. The Colonials were also blowing opportunities of their own. Three times, once on an interception, once on a fumble, and once on a poor West Virginia boot, the Colonials drove deep into Mountaineer territory. However, each time the giant West Vir- ginia line led by All-American Bruce Bosley and tackle Sam Huff threw the Buff back. Then in the waning minutes of the game Quarterback Bob Sturm hit Paul Thompson on three straight aerials and Mike Sommer hauled one In deep in Mountaineer territory. But the Mountaineers intercepted a Looney aerial and thus secured the Southern Conference title. It Is said that lightning never strikes in the same place twice. However It did to the Colonials In the form of the University of Richmond football team led by their great little quarterback, Tommy Theodose. Though W outgained, outplayed, and outstatlsticed the Spid- ers, they couldn ' t outscore them. As was the story last season the Spiders punched over a TD and sat back and thwarted every Colonial effort. In the second period Theodose accounted for 35 of a 52 yard Richmond scoring drive. Left halfback Lou Wacker wacked over from the two for the only touchdown all day. Orange Bo’wl bound Maryland closed out their third unbeaten season in five years against the Colonials 19-0, despite four inter- ceptions by the alert GW defense. A snow bound crowd of 20,000 watched the Colonials dominate the second half only to see the Buff thwarted three times— once on the six-inch- line, the 16, and the 19, Maryland got their first score following the opening kickoff. Quarterback Lynn Beightol hit End Russ Dennis with a 41 yard scoring toss before the game was four minutes old, A GW fumble on their own 27 led to the second Terp tally midway through the first period. Halfback Ed Vereb scored from the one, Vereb also capped the third Terp scoring thrust In the second period when he went over from four yards out capping a 60 yard drive. Thus the season ended. The boys acquitted themselves well, but whet ' s more, they gave indication of better things to come. " Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.

The Buff and Blue sauntered up to New York to play a lowly rated Manhattan University five, and they dejectedly returned home with a stinging 71-63 defeat. This proved to be the beginning of a ' bet- ter-to-be-forgotten " period for the G Streeters. The team started the new year right by capturing the Maryland University Invitational Tournament crown, but promptly fell back into their slump by dropping a humiliating 62-48 contest to Mary- land. In beating Michigan State for the Maryland Invitational crown, the Reinhart men defeated one of the nation ' s highest ranked teams. This victory was influential in boosting up our na- tional ranking, Maryland ' s highly Inspired Terrapins played like a team possessed, and completely outplayed the Colonials. This in- comprehensible slump continued for another week, and the Colonials were beaten by both Richmond and V.P.L Returning to their winning ways, the Colonials won their next four games, including victories over both Richmond and V.P.L They then ran into their Nemis again from College Park and lost 67 to 46, The Buff and Blue finished the remainder of the season in fine fashion, winning five while losing only one. LEFT; No, not toe dancing! George Klein ' s just on tip toes to get a better look before he goes up for a shot. Joe Petcavitch defies the old adage that a man is better with his two feet on the ground as he sails past two West Virginia players for a basket. Jay Manning’s a little backward about coming forward, but who cares — a few seconds later he had 2 points. ' Gosh, he‘s big! " seems to be whet Maryland players would like to say as Jack Jolly goes up over their heads for a jump shot " Oops, pardon me, Bill. After you! " Bill Telasky goes right by a Richmond defender. One sad note to add is that by winning only two of the four games played in the " Big Three " competition, Georqe Washington losej the beautiful trophy which has decorated the entrance of the Stu- dent Union the past year. This trophy is awarded to that member of the " Big Three (G.W., Georgetown, and Maryland) who com- piles the best record In games played against each other. Last year this trophy was awarded to G.W,, whose record against the other two was unblemished, but in the process of losing two games to Maryland this year, the Colonials virtually handed the trophy to the Terps. This season has been one of considerable stram on the egotistical prognosticators. After predicting a highly successful season for the Colonials they were given a rude shock by our loss to Man- hattan. Figuring that any team could have an off night, these opti- mistic sportsmen still stuck to their convictions, but by mid-season their predictions proved false, and they were forced to drop us from the list of top teams. As the record shows, we have gone through another successful season We had five good starters and a fairly strong bench. Even though we didn ' t make the N.C.A.A. Tournament, our team gave us plenty of thrills and action. Next year ' s prospects seem very bright. Returning from this year ' s varsity are Ardie Baker, Bob Goodwin, John Jolly, Ron Matalavaqe, Bill Telasky, Bob Sweeney, and Dick Younq. The men will probably be helped by Richard Carroll, Jerry Cooper, Ronnie Dearden, Ken Eriksson, Bill Giankakls, Robert Kean, Sam Knlsley, and Don Rhine — all up from J.V. team Joe Holup, 6‘ 6 " center and co-captain from SwoyersvlHe, Pennsylvania. Joe led the ball dub in almost every department. Among the many achievements this year was joining that very small and select group of players who have scored over 2,000 points in their college career. Against the University of Richmond, Jce set a new G.W, individual scoring record with 47 points, and less than two weeks la ' ef he amassed the total of 49 points aqainst Furman. Our All-American also led the nation in rebounds and in field goal accuracy. By the end of the season, Joe had compiled enough points Two hands for beginners like Freshman Bill Tela:ky — two hands and two points,, though. to become the sixth leading scorer in the history of organized col- legiate basketball. Besides his scoring ability, Joe was also one of the country ' s leading rebounders. Joe Holup graduates this June and writ be a valuable asset to the lucky professional team that signs him. George Klein, 5’ IQ guard from Far Rockaway, New York. George was the co-captain and defensive wizard of this year ' s squad, George ' s defensive ability always overshadowed his offensive po- tentiality, but when Georgetown University tripled teamed Joe Holup. George scored 24 points, which was the biq factor in de- feating the Hoyas. This feat was also impressive because it was George ' s last regular season game as a college player. Still another point that makes this feat remarkable was that Georqe had injured hjs ankle in a previous game and had only pa rticipa ted infrequent- ly in his East few games. George climaxed his college career at G.W r by making the All Southern Conference Team. RIGHT: Confucius say, ' Under basket, he who reaches highest scores most points " Joe Holup taps a GW shot in as he reaches far above everyone else. IlSHWGTO Picture of art All American [note the concentration!. Joe Holup tales aim from the outside. Sometimes you just can ' t win! — Especially with two men covering you. Joe Petcavltch gets hemmed in by Maryland and appears to have little chance of getting his shot off. Jay Manning. 6 4“ forward from Washington, D. C. Jay started this season in tremendous fashion, averaging about IS points in the first six games. As the season progressed, however, Jay " cooled off. " but towards the end of the year aqain perked up. His fins ball stealing and fast breaking in the Georgetown game and his outstanding play against W L in the Southern Conference playoffs were probably the highlights of Jay’s season. Joe Petcavich, 6 ' 5 " forward from Carbondale. Pennsylvania. Joe had another good season; he consistently scored in double figures, captured many rebounds, and in the early part of the season, led the country in shooting accuracy. Besides his fine layup and jump shot, Joe added a sweeping hook shot to his repertoire this year. Joe continually delighted the an$ in pre-game warmups with his colorful ' ' dunking, " Bill Telasly, 6 ' 2 " guard from Albany, New York, Coach Reinhart pulled one of the biggest surprises of the year when he started this talented freshman in the opening game, and Bill ' s fine playing has proven Reinhart ' s strategy sound. Ending the season with a better than 10 point average, BiM will be one of the standouts on next year ' s squad. John Jolly, 6 1 6 " forward from Rockport, Indiana, Big John had a very fine season, and he will be a big star on next year ' s team. Con- sistently improving throughout the season, John occasionally was inserted into the starting lineup, and gave a very good account of himself. Ardie Baker, S ' 10 " guard from Washington, D. C, Ardie was used this season as a playmaker and he did a very commendable job. Be- sides his playmaking ability, Ardle ' s speed will make him a valuable addition to next year ' s team. Ron Matalavage, 6’ 3 " forward from Luzerne, Pennsylvania. Grad- uating from the J.U.s in mid-season, Rons defensive ability prompted Coach Reinhart to start him in certain qannes. Having three more years to play, Ron should become a big star for G,W. It ' s all part of the game-“the foot, that is. Joe Petcavltch drives under the Tech basket for 2 points. Sitting: B.

CHEERLEADERS The University Cheerleaders are sponsored by the Of ' fjce of Men ' s Activities, This year ' s squad led the stu- dents in cheering at football and basketball games and at the pep rallies. Colonial Boosters helps the squad by passing out pompons and booster cards at the games. These all add up to more pep and school spirit amonq G,W.U. students. Tryouts are held each spring with two weeks of prep- aration and training before hand. The new squad is se- lected by a panel of judges chosen by the captain of the cheerleading squad. Its a lot of fun, but a lot of work for the cheerleaders, but through it all the students can count on them for a job well done. Four pert cheerleaders wait for their next cheering assignment jWK THE 1955 BASEBALL TEAM first row: D, Henshaw, J. Lugi, M. MeErvxe. R. Looney, J. Dorish. J. Pdperella, J. Satfer D. Cillento. J.

Beard, J. Rosanio. Baseball last year with the Colonials was more or less a touch- and-go matter. Riddled with injuries to key men in the lineup, the Buff nevertheless did themselves and their coach, Bill Rinehart,, justice. With Roger Turner leading the wav on the mound, the Colonials ' squad finished second in the Southern Conference with a record and an overail season slate of f2 wins and 6 losses. Sup- porting Turner ' s fine hurling performances were Ray Looney a, first base who made the All-Southern Conference team, " Skinny " Saffer, who did a superb fob behind the plate besides filling In at many other positions when needed ' Bob Rossani and Joe DiAnribr- sio tn the outfield: and Jerrv Paperella a f shortstop who sparked the Infield with his fine fielding and hitting. The Colonials ' season record was no indication of the calibre of their team. Despite Injuries all through the year, Coach Rhlnehar 1 did a terrific fob of juggling his lineup In a fashion similar to Casey Stengel ' s New York Yankees. Even though Rhinehart didn ' t have quite the same success as Stengel had, he did manage to give the Buff a good season and at no time during the year were the Colonials found to be without hustle and spirit. Withal, the Colo- nials were in the Southern Conference race to the end, only losing out In the next to the ast contest. Give and take a bit most observers of the GW team in 1956 would have to agree that If was a team to be proud of in many ways. Next year the Colonials expect bigger and better Ihings in the way of a winning season. Several of the brighter stars for this year ' s squad will be returning along with several new prospects. BASEBALL " He who hesitates is lost. " A hesitated throw to the plate by a Maryland Infielder (not shown) arrives too late to stop a GW score. 188 SAILING After a fabulous record in 1954, the Colonials sailing team under the expert coaching of George Collins found that the old adage of ' Tornorrow is another day " meant ' Tomorrow is a better day in their case. Starting off in the " Beer Cup " Regatta at Princeton, the Colo nials found the Tigers, stiff competition for their oarsmen as they sailed to a second-place finish on a chilly March 27 day. In a ‘Hexagonal’ meet with the Georgetown, Lehigh, Maryland, Princeton, and the University of Virginia, the Colonials once again found the competition not too tough as they walked away With their first victory in a very tight race. With these two fine showings under their belt, the Buff " sailors " ran through an extremely tough schedule which included meets with such teams as Georgetown, Navy, Maryland, Haverford. the Middle Atlantic Championship finals, and the Spring I nvitationai with New England and M : dwest entries, in fine fashion. Even better prospects for next year seem to be 3n the limelight as several of the Colonial oarsmen will be returning. With Coach Collins once again at the helm, sailing at GW should continue to be one of the brighter aspects of the Colonials ' undertaf mgs. Any way you loot at it. the 1955 sailing team was one of the finest squads GW has had in a lonq time and certainly followed in the footsteps of last year ' s successful team, At Home on Land or Sea!

SPORT HIGHLIGHTS O F T H E YEAR " The long throw gets him, " GOLF Splitting even In twelve matches the Colonial golfers showed a fine brand of play all year long and finally finished in fourth place in the Southern Conference Tourney which was won by Washington and Lee whom GW had beaten earlier. With Coach George Differtbaugh at the helm, the Colonials sparked by Larry Spellman ) Jim Clark (who placed third in individual play in the Southern Conference Tourney], Hubert Huff and Irv Salamy. beat the likes of VMI, W and L, Western Maryl and, Virginia and Mary- land, However, the Colonial golfers were better than their S00% rec- ord seems to show. Several close matches went against the Buff and at times hard luck spelled defeat where victory seemed as- sured. Many observers feel that last year s squad had more poten- tial than many in some time but really never quite reached their peak. Next season, only Buddy Watwood and Jack Vaile will be lost, the top four men this year returning. This should give the Colonials a fine start In building a real winner.

With Bill Steiner, Ken Garrison, and Herb Rappeport either ill or on the sick list, the Buff fielded a team that usually never was at full strength. Even so. Coach Bill Schrleve still managed to juggle his lineup enough to win six and lose seven. In Southern Conference play, the Buff came out in ninth place, winning four and losing two. With the sterlinq play of Steiner, Garrison, and Rappeport lead- ing the way, the Colonials found the likes o f West Virqinia, Wil- liam and Mary, and other conference teams not too tough as they went through their year. Bill Wilson, Mickey Boteler and Bill Rus- sel rounded out the squad and all played steady tennis. Rappeport, Boteleler and Russel will be back next season to qive GW a superb nucleus for a fine team. Despite Injuries, the Colonials played excellent tennis all year, especially Rappeport, Garrison, and Steiner when they were avail- 191 Why you old so and so — take a poke at me, will you?

VINCENT J, DeANGELlS Director of Men ' s Intramurals The object of intramural sports Is to provide a program of activi- ties that will meet the nature, needs, and capacities of the students of George Washington University. Under the capable direction of Prof. Vincent J. DeAngelEs, an intensive intramural athletic program was presented to George Washington U. Aiding Mr. DeAngelis were student assistants, Ellen Raley, Morris ( " Monk 1 " Moose " } Casper, and Cecil Charles. A breakdown of events included touch football, basketball, swim- ming, boxing, softball, and track as the major sports. Bowling, foul shooting, wrestling, badminton, volleyball, table tennis, golf, ano tennis constituted the minor sports. Trophies were given to the winning team in each sport, and to the outstanding men participating In the various Individual events. Three major awards were presented by the intramural department. The Ail-University Team Achievement Award, conducted on a point basis for successful competition went to Phi Alpha. The All-Uni versify Individual Participation Award, won by John Harrison of Sigma Nu, was given to the individual accumulating the highest number of total points in competition The Sportsmanship Award, based on team participation, spectator pa rticlpation and sports menship, was presented to Pi Kappa Alpha, The Intramural Department would like to extend its thanks and appreciation to the members of the Physical Education staff, to the student representatives of the organizations (who participated in the program throughout the year], whose generous cooperation helped make the Intramural Program a success. 192 ' Go wesf young man, go west” A Deft back tries his own right end instead, as Standley Smith and Paul Garner, Pht Alpha, move in to stop him.

WOMEN ' S IN The department of physical education for women spon- sors a wide variety of sports for women. Activities such as basketball bowling, badminton, canoeing, field hockey, ice skating, riding, riflery, softball, tennis and volleyball are an integral part of student life. Badminton and basketball take place In the university gym during the winter months. Life saving and swim- ming, including synchronized swimming, are taught at the TRAMURALS YWCA pool Chartered buses take the girls to Haines Point in the fall and spring where they engage in the outdoor sports. Facilities for ice skating, riding and bowl- ing are found nearby; the rifle range is located on the campus. Basketball, hockey, riflery and tennis are extramural as well, with games and matches played with other schools in the surrounding area. The sports season is culminated Hold it, girls!
