Administrators Junior College Experience has convinced many educators that a general cultural background should sup- plement the more specialized subjects to fol- low. For this purpose the junior College was founded in 1930, Historical, social and eco- nomical antecedents are more adequately un- derstood after this two-year background in the four-year college program in which em- phasis is placed upon the scientific and phys- ical aspects of civilization. The degree of Associate in Arts is awarded to individuals who successfully complete this program, and a two-year terminal program of vocational train- ing is offered in Secretarial Studies and Ac- counting. Preparatory professional curricula are offered for admission to the Schools of Education. Pharmacy and Government, and l he first two years of pre- professional work required bv the Schools of Medicine and Law are provided. In 1821 the Columbian College was granted a charter for the ‘‘sole and exclusive purpose of educating youth in English, learned and foreign languages, liberal arts, and literature.” The basic purpose of the Columbian College is to develop the student ' s awareness of Ins partic- ular abilities and his general intellectual pow- ess. This objective is achieved by acquainting the student with one major area of study while developing his understanding of how this field fits into the larger context of liberal arts. Among the many fields of study available are English, philosophy, history, literature, for- eign languages, mathematics, arts and sciences. Recently, a revised curriculum has been de- signed to broaden the scope of a liberal arts education to meet the necessities of modern times. Henry G. Doyle Dean Calvin D. Linton Assistant Dean Colu bian College School of Government Joe L, Jessup Assistant Dean The School of Government was established in 1928 as a further development of the basic [unctions of The George Washington Univer- sity to provide training in business, in foreign service and in governmental theory and ad- ministration. Students are prepared to better serve their country by training for careers in government service, business and professional fields. A curricula which combines social, ec- onomic. political, business, historical and psy- chological training is supplemented by many advantages derived from the University’s lo- cation in the nation’s capital. Improved understanding of individual re- sponsibilities under the Constitution of the United States in the conduct of public office is secured by a program that includes both grad- uate and undergraduate work. Arthur E. Hi kns Dean 11 JaM ' EY H. Fox Dean Ralph W. Hi i i ku fssoriate Dean The School of Education has done much to improve educational facilities and opportun- ities by producing competent teachers super- visors and administrators who have benefited from the varied educational courses offered. These students of education may receive bach- elor of Arts degrees in the fields of Education, Home Economics or Physical Education. For those who wish to continue their studies, de- grees of Master of Arts in Education or the degree of Doctor of Education, government training programs and training for those hold- ing liberal arts degrees are offered. Advanced studies are available to experienced teachers, and advanced professional certificates are awarded to those who have a Master ' s degree and thirty additional credit hours. School of Education School of Law The George Washington Law School, oldest in the District of Columbia, has been the de- veloping concept of a national law center for 91 years. As a member of the Association of American Law Schools and the American Bar Association, it provides its students with uni- que advantages derived from its location. I n- limited facilities for effective research and observation of federal judiciary, legislative and administrative agencies are but part of the op- portunities available in the national capital’s training ground for lawyers. Students mav benefit from the Law Library, the George Washington Law Review and the Student Bar ssociation. The purpose of the Law School is to produce students equipped to meet the needs of society in private and public law who recognize their responsibilitv for the continued development of modern laws. Carvillk D. Benson Assistant Dean School of Engineering Martin A. Mason Dean Hie School of Engineering, recognized by the Engineer’s Council for Professional De- velopment, was founded in 1 884. Throughout the years, it lias been known as the Corcoran Scientific School the Washington College of Engineers and the College of Engineering and Mechanic Art. 1 he School of Engineering de- velops in its students a fundamental knowledge of the scientific principles of their field, skill in application and a responsible attitude toward society and the engineering profession. Bachelor of Science degrees in the fields of Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering are conferred. The advantages of an advisory system and special degrees for those who demonstrate unusual professional abilities are available. The construction of a new T engineering building, Tompkins Hall, and the recent estab- lishment of two new degrees are significant of the expansion of the School of Engineering. Charles W. B liven Dean School of Pharmacy Founded in 1867 and affiliated with the University in 1906, the School of Pharmacy provides for specialized training of profession- ally competent pharmacists and the promotion ol the health profession of pharmacy in gen- eral. These goals are attained in a plan of in- struction which correlates professional courses ivith iihetal arts studies to develop student standing and responsible attitudes toward society. I he School of Pharmacy, accredited by the American Council on Pharmaceutical Educa- tion. is a member of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy. Students of pharma- cy. with access to the American Institute of I harinacy. pharmaceutical museums, govern- ment agencies, laboratories and libraries, may further benefit from the knowledge and ex- perience offered by many outstanding men in the profession who are practicing in the city. Division of Special Students Established in 1944. the Division of Special Students is one of the newer divisions of the University. Students who wish to qualify for degree candidacy must first meet the scholastic requirements of this division. Individual attention is given to a special student who studies courses that will apply toward his degree and that correspond to those required by the college or school to which he will transfer after attaining the required Q, P. I. An advisory program which provides for individual student confer- ences gives impetus to the rising number of students who qualify for transfer each year. Division of University Students The Division of University Students offers unique educational advantages to adult students who are not candidates for specific degrees, but who wish to benefit from the wide range of instruction offered. These students of varying ages and occu- pations may enroll in courses either for credit or as auditors, and may transfer to another division of the l niversity w hen the requirements of that college or school have been met. Since 1930. this important division lias grown to include an increasing num- ber of students. WAR it KIN It. WEST Dean S pedal S tiident s KLMKR L. KAYSER JOHN G. ALL EE.

The Wandering Greeks Society was founded on the l niversity campus in March. 1956, by Lois Cobb and Alice Vardanian with the help of Mhs Virginia Kirk bride. Its members are transfers to the University who belong to sororities which are not represented here. The Wandering Greeks share the sorority house at 2137 C Street with Delta Gamma, This year there are 13 active members in the Society, representing eight sororities. The group sends a dele- gate to the Panhellenie Council where she may vote with campus sorority delegates on issues before the Council The Wandering Greeks participate in sorority func- tions such as the Panhellenie Prom, and sang in the Panhel Sing on March 15. Anne Leone, 1957 Cherry Tree Princess, was sponsored by this active and sue cessful organization. First Ruw: L. C lib. A. Varduimm, President; t. Rankin, Sllosu Row: S, B rry, P. Evans. L. Hurley.

The purpose of the council is to promote intersorority coop- eration, to encourage scholarship, to serve the University in every way possi- ble and to guide the sorority pledges. Of major importance is the Goat Show held in the fall. The competing sororities abide by the regulations set down by the Council. The can-of-food admission price for the show is then given the Washing- ton Federation of Churches for distribu- tion to needy families. Junior Panhellenic Council Inter-Sorority Athletic Board JSAB was organized to promote and guide intramural sports between the so- rorities on campus. The representatives from each sorority and the executive board set up tournaments in bridge, ten- nis, swimming, basketball, volleyball, badminton, bowling and golf. The winner of each competition is awarded a trophy and point credit. At the end of the year the points are tallied and the sorority with the highest score is awarded a large yearly trophy.

The American Society of Civil Engineers was founded in 1852, and the student chapter at the University was established in 1923. The purpose of ASCE is to supplement theo- retical knowledge in the field of civil engineer- ing with practical knowledge. To accomplish this aim. the Society holds held trips and lec- tures throughout the year. The highlight of this year’s activity was the ASCE Convention at which the University’s chapter played host to the chapters from Johns Hopkins University and the University of Maryland. A. S. C. E. A. S. M. E. Founded nationally in 1880, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers now includes over fifty thousand members. The George Washington chapter, one of 135 student branches, is open to all students interested in mechanical engineering. ASME’s activities include movies and lectures by out- standing men in the field. Through this program the student gains an introduction to engineering and an opportunity to discuss new developments with top. pro- fessional men. n annual contest open to all undergrad- uate students in the branch is the ASME prize paper con- test. held for the purpose of encouraging original re- search and study bv students.

All cadets attend classes and leadership laboratory ses- sions where they are taught subjects which will aid them in their future careers. In addition to the regular curriculum the Corps also participates in such events as es corting the Homecoming Queen candidates and representing the University in many civic functions The organization of the various flights of cadets is under the command of Cadet Colonel Charles M. Hunter HI, The George Washington University detachment is divided into squadrons which are further divided into Flights. This division allows each cadet to acquaint him- self with the administration and operation which is used in actual Air Force units. It further gives every advanced cadet an opportunity to assume positions of leadership.

The Redskins, boasting a string of ten straight victories carried over from the perfect record compiled in 1955, were surprised by a determined G. W. defense which repeatedly repelled the Red- skin threats. I he partisan crowd of 6,500 saw their hopes of another unde- feated season crushed at 9:05 of the 4th quarter when Heie Spera shook loose from the Miami defenders to snare a 43 yd, spiral from Q- B. Jack Henzes putting the ball on the opponents 3-yard stripe. After two unsuccessful cracks at the line, ()- 1L Henzes bowled over on 3rd down in vault the Colonials into a 6-0 lead, Spera converted the extra point, supplying the margin of victory, With little time remaining, Miami roared down held to score the tying touchdown, with substitute halfhack Harold Williams circling left end to score. Tackle Don Smith kicked the extra point to deadlock the score temporarily, hut Miami was caught holding. Penalized bark 15 yards. Smith hooted again, but Ids attempt fell short, and the score stood 7-6 with little over a minute remaining. Except for the scoring play, G. W, was bottled up in their own territory most of the day, content on stopping Miami’s scoring threats. However, the Colonials did threaten once in the second half following the kick-off. Sommer fumbled the kick but recov- ered nicely to sneak to the G. W. 22. Following two unsuccessful line plunges, Looney attempted a pass which was overthrown, hut pass interference was detected, moving the hall out to the 35. The keeper play, Looney ' s favorite, netted him 22 yards to the Red- skin 43. Sommer streaked for 4 on a hand off, and Looney, throw- Dick Clay pool makes great catch against William and Mary. iug his first pass of the game, connected with Thompson for a short gain to the 32, A fourth down pass from Looney to Thompson was 3 yards short of a first down, and the Redskins took over, Tom Dimitroff, mixing his plays well, led the team on a 56-yard drive to the Colonial 19 early in the 4th quarter.

The change proved effective, for on second down, Ted Colna in- tercepted Dimitroff ' s jump pass hailing the .Miami threat. “The Redskins thought they’d scalp the Ruff hut G, W, l , called their bluff. ' 1 The Colonials had to be content with a 1CM) victory over Pur- man Univ. in a Saturday night game played at Greenville, South Carolina. The Hurricanes, usually pushovers in Southern Con ference play, offered tiff competition to the Colonials who after scoring the firsi lime they had the hall, were outplayed bv the outmanned Furman squad. Xnt until Dick Claypool kicked a 12 yard held goal in the closing minutes of the game did the Bull nail down the victory The Hurricanes looked more like a summer breeze in the first quarter as the Colonials, sparked by their clever field General Ray Looney scored the first time they got the ball. Furman at- tempting an inside kick, met an unwilling customer in Ed Sakacli, wbo quickly fell fin the hall on the G W. 4 3, On the 1st play from scrimmage Looney surprised the South- erners with a quick pitch out to Sommer w r hn tossed to Paul Thompson on the Furman 44, Looney kept himself for 4 and then goL the 1st down on a 7-yard pitch to Thompson. Spera. replacing the injured Sommer liol ted five yards followed by Austin who went 7 yards before being halted at the 17. Looney stuck to the ground calling on H. B, Dick Claypool who responded with a vital 11-yard dash to the six, Spera gained two, Claypool 2 more, and Looney drove to the one. On fourth down. Looney sneaked over, and Claypool converted to give G, W. a 7-0 lead. Furman taught hre in the second quarter, and only a super effort by the determined “R ' ' squad line preserved the shut-out. The Hurricanes punting on 4lh down got a good break when a G. W, defender was detected roughing the kicker, giving Furman 15 yards and an automatic first down, Jim Pen I and, fleet Furman II. R., scampered 25 yards to the 15. From there. Q.B. Rill Baker passed to end Ray Siminsky who fell at the 4-yarcl stripe. Pete Spera recovers fumble in Miami game. Following a scoreless 3rd quarter, Furman came to life again early in the last stanza After intercepting Looney’s pass on their own 49, the Hurricanes drove to the Ruff 24. Once again the " R " line thwarted a scoring threat, and preserved the thin 7-0 lead. The “B” team then got their own offensive machine in gear and marched 76 yards downfield, culminating the drive with a 3 pointer by Claypool. This clinched the game and gave G.W. a 1-0 record in conference play. “ l Hail to the Ruff ' , played the band, As the Colonials made a goal line stand.” Slinging Sammy Baugh had his “homecoming spoiled as his previously high scoring Cowboys were lassoed by a defense- minded G.W. outfit in the tune of 13-7. Bill McHenry brings down Miami ball carrier. Bob Shuba is brought down after long gain. Hardin-Simmons showed a powerful offensive punch when operating between their own 20 and the G.W. 15, but Jacked the scoring punch when it counted. Statistically, it was a Hardin Simmons game all the way as the Cowboys outgained the Co- lonials 402 yards to 189. besides controlling the ball 84 plays as compared with only 54 for G.W, But statistics dim 4 win ball games as the final 13-7 score indicates. It was simply a case of G.W. taking advantage of every break that was offered, and making few mistakes of their own. The Co lonials first score came as Simmons fumbled a 4th down punt with the happy result being a G.W. 1st down on the Cowboys 6 with 3 G.W, linemen resting comfortably on the ball. Pete Spera was stifled momentarily with a 6 yard loss hack to the 12, but more than made up the yardage with a 12-yard boll through the line for a T.D, Clay pool missed the try for the P.A.T. but G.W. led 6 0, Bo Austin stomps out yardage. Following the second half kickoff Hardin-Simmons had to re- linquish possession and the Cowboy ' s Q.B. ““Model A’ Ford punted 52 yards to the G.W. 24. On third down Dick Clay pool made a daring catch of a pass from Looney, operating from the H.Bp slot, moving the ball to the enemy 48 as Looney drove for 7 to the 41 f Henzes was injured on the next play and Looney moved back to Q.B. to pilot the G.W, offense to their 2nd T.D. Kay lugged the leather himself for 14 yards to the 27, and called on Pete Spera for gains of 3 and 11 yards advancing to the Texans ' 13. Shu ha then burst for 11 long yards to the 2, and then barreled over on 3rd down to score. Clay pool converted success- fully and G.W. led 1 3-0 at the end of the 3rd quarter. Hardin-Simmons finally got rolling in the final stanza, hut it proved to be late. The Cowboys gained 11 first downs to 0 for G.W. in this quarter, but managed to score only one time. This came on an 82-yard march directed by Ford, who finally showed the form that placed him 6th among the nation ' s passers in 1956. He connected on 3 for 4 passes totaling 50 yards in this final drive which saw H,S hack Dewey Bohling smash the final yard to T.D. territory with only 1:45 left. The final score read 13-7 and a frustrated Hardin-Simmons team retreated to the greener pastures of Texas. With Mike Sommer showing his form of old, G.W, put on their best offensive show of the season, only to have a few key mistakes cost them a victory, and the Colonials had to settle for a 20-20 tie with Boston U. Leading 20-13 early in the 4th quarter, Pete Spera dropped back into punt formation at his own 28, To Spera ' s surprise the snap from center sailed well over Petes head. The speedy Spera re- trieved the ball in the end zone and weaved his way back to his, own 29, but at this point the B,U. Terriers took over. In 6 plays the Terriers had scored and deadlocked the game 20 to 20. This was only one of the many G.W. errors adding to four lost fumbles and three intercepted passes. All was not darkness, how- ever. as G.W,, through most of the contest displayed a brilliant running attack in piling up their biggest score to date, Boston took the lead with only a few minutes gone in first quarter, scor- 11 this be madness, make the most of it . , , BrackbOl gets his man. ing mi a 40-yard run by Larrv Fennessy. G. W, bounced back and marched 66 yards to go ahead 7-6 on a 22-yard scoring pass from Looney to Bill Berry. The drive was sparked by runs of 31, 3. and 12 yards .from Mike Sommer. The final (L . lally came in Uie 3rd quarter on a 4-yard pitch to Thompson via Looney. This capped a 65-yard scoring drive. The 7- point margin proved loo si inn however, as the Terriers bounced back with seconds remaining to knot (lie score. " Lack of offense was not the trouble. As one had center broke the bubble. " G.W. flexed their muscles and rolled to a 40-14 victory over V.M.I. giving the Buff an impressive 4-0-1 record, and leaving them ambitious for an undefeated season. The Key dels were never in the one-sided contest as the Co- lonials racked up 6 touchdowns, piling up 379 yards on the ground and 101 yards in the air. The massive G.W. line opened huge gaps in their opponents defense enabling Ted Colna to gain 90 yards in 12 attempts, Mike Sommer 74 in 9 tries, Pete Spera 74 in 11 carries, and Dick Claypool 54 yards in 8 blasts, Ray Looney contributed to the humiliation by passing for 4 completions in 5 tries for 89 yards and 2 touchdowns. Coach Sherman substituted freely in the final i|uarter in an effort to hold the score down, and as a result V.JV1.I. managed to push across 2 quick T.IVs in the final frame. They came a bit too late. “The Keydet rally came much too late; G.W, had already sealed their fate. " Dick Clay pools 19-yard field goal provided the slim margin of victory, as G.W. squeaked to a 16-14 win over a valiant W M eleven. The win gave G.W. their first Homecoming victory since 1949 and preserved the Colonials undefeated record. Ted Colna and Don Herman paced 1 he 1st half attack. Colna, who brought a 4,6 average into the contest, personally accounted for 28 of the 32 yards in the first T.D, drive, while Herman grabbed a ten-yard scoring pass to cross the stripe with the 2nd score. Scoring twice in the second half, and threatening many more times, the Indians were finally stopped in the final minute when Bo Austin made a timely interception after W M had advanced to their own 4L The mud -soaked Colonials then happily ran out the clock. “Our heroes won so we won ' t fret; Look out, ref! G.W s best: Ed Sakach, Dave Liddick, and Bo Austin. For ihe first time in history, three G.W. players have been drafted by professional football teams. Don Herman snares long pass from quarterback jack Henzes in V.Mi. game. Even though we got soakin ' wet.” The Mountaineers from West Virginia smothered the G.W r . offense completely, winning a 14-0 game easily before 22,000 rabid West Virginia fans. Dominating play throughout the game, the Mountaineers pushed the Buff all over the field and administered G.W.’s first defeat of the year. In fact, the Colonials didn ' t get a first down until late in the 3rd quarter, G.W. threatened only once in the contest With but a minute and a half remaining in the game, Bay Looney pitched out to Sommer who tossed a 51 -yard pass to Clay pool which carried to 1 thought toe holds were used in wrestling. the W ; esi Virginia 3, The Mountaineer defense stiffened and turned back 2 G.W r . thrusts, and a last down pass intended for Thompson was deflected. Time ran out and the final score read 14-0. G-W s defensive line showed well despite the setback. With Boh Frulla and Dave Liddick leading the charge, the Buff line made a heroic defensive stand near the end of the half. The Mountaineers had the hall on the G.W, 31. On tfie first play W.V.U, was penalized 15 yards to the 46. Szuchs was then hit for an B-yard loss. A clipping penalty pushed West Virginia hack 15 more yards to the 31. Szuchs tried another pass and was thrown hack 11 more yards to the 20. This left the Mountaineers with fourth down and 60 yards to go fora first down! “Here went the hopes of unbeaten glory ; The Mountaineer power told the story.” The Colonials closed out the season with an unimpressive 20-0 over the stubborn Bulldogs of the Citadel. The battling Bulldogs held the highly favored Buff to a scoreless deadlock at half, be- fore the superior G.W. power hurst loose in the final quarter. The first Colonial score came in the 3rd quarter following a fumlde recovery by Ed Sakach on the Citadel 22. After three of- fensive plays had netted hut 2 yards, Looney uncorked a 4th down pass to Thompson on the nine. Austin drove to the one on 2 keeper plays, and Looney finished the job on the next play. Clay- pool missed the P.A.T. The 2nd score came early in the 4th quarter as a result of a beautifully executed option play which saw Looney weave his way 51 yards to a score. Spera converted and G.W. led 13-0, Another long run set up the final score, as Spera streaked 53 yards to the Bulldog 10. On the next play G.W, Captain, Bo Austin, raced the final 10 yards to sew up the victory. Sun Bowl — 1957 It was a very happy New ear! G.W. s grid men in- vaded Texas and captured the Sun Bowl classic from a favored Texas Western team to complete the most suc- cessful football season in Colonial history. Not since 1936. when the RufT also compiled a 7-1-1 record in regular season play, has a G.W. team fared so well. The 1956 squad had the added distinction of finish- ing 16th in the A.P. poll, of winning the first Homecoming game in seven years, and of capturing a Sun Bowl vic- tory. It was a fired- up G.W. team on January 1. and the inspired Colonials completely outclassed a highly-rated Texas Western team in what the experts termed a 13-0 “ upset” victory. The Buff apparently were unimpressed by the pre-game odds, which established the Miners as two-touchdown favorites, and the newspaper accounts, which implied that the Sun Bowl selection committee had Bo Austin picks up four yards and a first down in die third quarter, chosen a second-class outfit that the lighter but faster Texans would easily dominate. How wrong they were! G.W. not only shackled the Miners ' speed, forcing them into errors and breaking through their defense with ap- parent ease, hut also they handed the high-scoring Texans their first shut-out in 44 games! Texas Western, which had compiled a fine 9-1 record in Border Conference play, found the beefy G.W. line a brick wall on defense. Before a stunned crowd of 15,000 Texas rooters, the Buff line contained the Miner offense Dick Claypool attempts a field goal. so effectively that Texas Western was limited to but 168 offensive yards, their longest gain being a 16-yard run. The Miners weren’t allowed to break into the open. They never actually made a serious scoring threat, and their few penetrations across midfield were quickly repelled. The Miners’ tackles were getting the worst of it from the likes of tackles Dave Liddick and Bob Jewett. I he guards fared no better with their opposites Ed Sakach and Bob Sutton. We were just too big and too tough, and despite the much-publicized “thin air. our Colonial for- ward wall did not tire as was expected, but seemed to gain in strength as the game progressed. Bui the story was not told completely in the line, as G.W s back field can boast of some heroics of its own. Bn Austin, the fullback and workhorse of the Colonial hack fie Id. was named the game’s Most Valuable Player for his great offensive work and his alert and bruising line- backing. In 20 carries he gained 108 yards to lead in individual ground gains. Austin did most of G.W.’s punting, recovered one of Texas Western’s fumbles and Mike Sommer is stopped after long gain. Robert Kolliner presents the Bowl Trophy to Captain Bo Austin and Coach Bo Sherman. had the longest rim from scrimmage, with a 15-yard dash that set up his team s second TD. Ray Looney, who turned in a superb effort at the quar- ter hack slot, with not far behind Austin in the voting, as he quarterbacked all but five plays and was a terror at defensive halfback. The nine-man Texas line, employed in desperation by the erratic Miners, failed to worry Looney as he continued to call on Austin, Dick Claypool and Ted Coin a to smack out the yardage at tackle and control the ball for most of the game. George Washington scored in the first period after missing an earlier opportunity from the one- foot line. It came on a 35-yard pass from Looney to senior end Paul Thompson. The big end. catching his third TD pass of the season, turned for the ball at the right moment and snatched it out of the eager hands of Bob Forrest at the ten. From there, Thompson raced the final ten yards and G.W, led 6-0. Clay pool’s conversion going wild. The Colonials didn’t score again until early in the fourth period, w hen G.W. took over on the Texas West- ern 36 following a pass interception by Co In a. Austin broke through tackle, carrying to the 18. On the first play of the fourth quarter. Looney faded back and hit Don Herman, who leaped high at the five to wrestle the ball away from three defenders. Austin cracked tackle to the three, and Spera puller! the short yardage for the TD. This time Claypool converted successfully and the score read 1 3-0. Even Texas Western’s most rabid rooters must have felt this was the clinching TD, even though there was a full period remaining to be played. The way the G.W. offense was operating, the 13 points might just as well ha ve been 50. for Texas Western’s few threads were mini- mized by the hard-charging, hard-to-fool G.W. linemen. So complete was G.W.’s domination of the Miners in the first half that Texas Western was limited to seven yards rushing and 16 passing. Coach Mike Brumbelow of Texas Western admitted afterward that his Miners hadn t run into a team as tough as the Colonials. Tile Buff pass defenses, generally good all season, were excellent that day. Texas Western’s speedy ends were blanketed, by two defenders on every play, which is quite a feat when the passer is also being rushed. Texas West- ern was allowed only two completions in 16 tries and had three passes intercepted. The Colonials also blocked one Texas Western punt and recovered two fumbles. A fumble recovery by Thompson on Texas Western s nine shortly after the opening kick-off gave the Colonials their first scoring chance, but they were stopped less than a foot from the goal. Later in the period they got another opportunity, after tackle Bob Jewett blocked a punt on the 31, The attack bogged down on the seven as three passing attempts by Looney and intended for Mike Sommer and Thompson missed by inches. A fumble recovery by end Fran Gleason and a pass in- terception by Claypool helped kill off the Miner’s late desperation attacks. The recovery by Gleason on G,W, 7 s 44 was turned into a drive to the Texas Western 17, where a field goal attempt by Claypool was blocked. But three points this late in the game would only have added insult to injury. The gun sounded and the jubilant G-Streeters carried Coach Sherman off the Kidd Stadium field with G.WVs finest gridiron victory.

Right: “Move over, buddy, you ' re in my way ’ Jack Jolly scores two points against Georgetown. Basketball Unaccustomed to anything but exceptional has kethall teams, G,W. fans this year witnessed an inexperienced Colonial team grope through an arduous season. There was none of last year’s glory of the Maryland Invitational Tournament championship nor of reaching the finals of the Southern Conference Championship, Rather there was the ignominy of two sound thrashings in the Ci ncinnati Tournament and a lackluster 3 wins and 21 losses record. The shortcomings of the team could definitely be attributed to lack of experience. Potentially the Buffs had a very fine team, but once on the court it was a different story. The starting five, comprised of sophomores except for John Jolly and playing together for the first season, were not able to successfully coordinate their efforts. Losing their first four games, G.W. got off to its worst start since the 1928-1929 season. Al- though the Buffs got their first victory over V.M.L relatively early in the season ' — December 17, their next win was not to come for over a month when they again mastered this same team. Mean- while they had been floored by their two intown rivals, Maryland and Georgetown, by scores of 68-48 and 85-61 respectively. It was not until the first loss inflicted by V.P.I.

The team started to work as a unit, ball -handling was smoother, shots were better set up. The results showed in the next game, a loss to highly rated St. Johns by 63-62 in Madison Square Garden. In this game the G.W. sophs came very close to providing one of the major upsets of the basket- ball season. Again the final game of the season against the leading team in the Southern Conference, West Virginia, was very nearly the occasion of a major upset. In a hard fought contest G.W. finally suc- 205 a Georgetown defender rum-bed by a score of 77-75. Finishing with a 3 wins anil 9 losses record in their conference, the Colonials did not qualify for the conference play- offs. Even though the team did not turn in an im- pressive record this year, great things are to be expected of it next year. Losing only two players via graduation, much underrated Ardie Baker and Dick Ci lento, it will he a more experienced team returning next year. Back will be Gene Guarilia, top scorer and rebounder for the Buffs, and Bill Telaskv, second highest scorer and brainy field General. The Colonials will also be able to count on the dependable rebounding and scoring of John Jolly next season. “My gosh — move your ball ! " 1 Along with these three will return three other young men whom G.W. will depend heavily upon: Bucky McDonald, Ron Matalavage, and Howie Bash. Filling out next year’s squad and providing valuable bench strength will be Frank Morrison, Bill Fackler, Ron Dearden, Sam Knisley, Jerry Cooper, and Ken Erickson. The closing word on the 1956-1957 season was, “Watch out for this team next year. A young club with a world of potential that could go all the way.

A sophomore playing liis first year of varsity ball. Gene scored 410 points in 24 games for an average of 17.1 points. In addition to this he led the team in rebounds. The high point of Gene’s season was 32 points scored in a narrow defeat by St. John’s. Second team All- Southern Conference honors were accorded to Gene. Bill Telasky — hailing from Albany, New York, and playing his second season of varsity hall although only a sophomore. Bill turned in another fine season. An excellent backcourt man. Bill was one of the hoys that made the team move. Combine this virtue with the second highest scor- ing average of the team, 12.3 points per game, and the greatest foul shooting accuracy, and you begin to appreciate Bill’s value to the team. “Here it i s — come and get it, " Ron Matalavage tempts V.P.l. defenders. “Fonl! ' Big Gene Guard ia is fouled during W M game. Bulky McDonald — 6 ' 3 " guard from Mar- linsburg, West Virginia, added his court savvy to the varsity. John will be back next year as a sen- ior and should help the Colonials to a vastly im- proved season. Ron Mata lav age — 6 ' 3 " forward from Lu- the basketball team this year. With a 10.5 points per game average Bucky was the third leading scorer this year. His straight-scoring set shots were his forte, as shown by his 21 points in the last game of the season against West Virginia. Only a sophomore, Bucky will lie counted on next year. John Jolly — 6 ' 6 " forward from Rockport, In- diana, had another fine season for the Buffs. A steady scorer and rebounder, John was a great asset to the team. It may he that John will he one of the big scorers if given the opportunity. His 48.8 field goal accuracy percentage was tops for also score from the outside with either a jump shot zerne, Pennsylvania, seemed to be the perfect com- bination of a big and little man. Although Ron was one of the really good rebounders, he could or with a push shot. Ron had one of his best games against V.M.l. when he led all scorers with 22 points. Another one of G. W.’s promising soph- omores, Ron should deliver on his potential next season. Ardie Baker — -5 ' 10 " guard from Washington, D.C., was captain of the team this year. Although used little this season, there were many observers who thought that Ardie could have been a great help to this inexperienced team if used more. Ardie had good shots from outside and was often able to utilize his exceptional speed to drive in for the close shots. Ardie played his best game in leading G.W. to a 79-77 win over William Mary. Scoring 16 points and putting on a fine dis- play of hustling, Ardie was the best player on the floor that night. Ardie is a senior and graduates. Coach Bill Reinhart Baseball Seven reasons for a winning season. A hustling, spirited squad, coupled with a top- notch won and lost record, culminated by the Southern Conference Championship, defines the 1956 Colonial doings on the diamond Proving to be one of the most rewarding seasons in GWU’s history, this year found the Buff and Blue finish- ing wilh a record of 8 wins and 3 losses in South- ern Conference play, by far the best performance in the league. Led by the superb pitching of Steve Bank and Stan Walowac plus the heavy hitting of Bo Austin, Ray Looney, Bob Reed and John Saffer, the Co- lonials finished with an overall record of 11 wins and 7 losses. Due to the fine coaching of Bill Rein- hart, the Buff fielded a squad that played good ball defensively, showed great power at the plate and hustled at every opportunity. A fitting end to a great season came when Ray Looney, Steve Bank, John Saffer and Dick Cilento were elected to the All-Conference first team Bo Austin and Jim Hill made the second team. This year ' s champion was not determined in the usual manner; instead of a round robin tourna- ment, the trophy was awarded to the team com- piling the best record in Conference play. 210 Pitcher Steve Bank receives the Outstanding Senior Athlete trophy from Yinnie DeAngelis.

The fine play of John Bouquet, Phil Dobyns and Bill Russell also added greatly to the team’s success. Coached by Bill Schreve, the team was composed of 3 freshmen and 3 upperclassmen. With the experience of one full season of intercollegiate play under their belt. Jack Tarr, Neil W alsh and Saul Leibowitz should form the nucleus for an even greater team next spring. 213 Men’s Intramurals Ah! The grunts umi groans of the grotesque grapplers. PROFESSOR VINCENT J.
