GEORGE TAYLOR ETTINGER a Undent, a scholar, a philosopher, a lover of the arts. Colleges are not simply bits of real estate. They are built of the character of men whose lives have gone into their making. More beautiful than marble, more enduring than stone, is a conse- crated life, a life like that of the friend to whom this tribute is I)aid. We remember Dr. Ettinger as Professor and Dean, but we love and revere him as a friend, as a man, who by his living taught us to live. Dr. .T. A. Seegers, ’13 Dr. Ettinger was the same in the decade 1910-20 as in 1800-70 and he will be so in 19U0-7O. These were his characteristics; Ilis humor was keen but kindly; he was an old man with young ideas: his strictly alphabetical order of recitation necessitated only occasional preparation; his digressions into political discus- sions often saved the unprepared; his examinations were long but easy; and all students and alumni loved him. Judge James F. Ilenninger, ’12 a sports enthusiaU, a lover and our beloved friend. of life. Dr. (Jeorge T. Ettinger stooil “aee liigli” with iiis stiuient ooin- panions while we sliared the joys (tliere were no sorrows) of col- lege life with him. He bridged flnely the social gap, which exist- ed in those days, between town and gown. Studious but never a recluse, earnest but always jolly, witty but never course; he was a welcome addition to any group. S. C. Schmucker, ' 82 It was a real privilege to sit at the feet of Dr. Ettinger. It was a great pleasure to meet such a One Cliristien gentleman and we are sorry that future students will not have the same oppor- tunity. Rev. Paul F. Spieker.

And God is nearer in a garden Than anywhere else on earth. The truth of this word lies in the fact that God first came to man in a garden, hut man lost that garden and is still longing for the garden. It should he one of the aims in the life o f the college and of the students in the college to try to gain a new hope and vision of the garden that ought to be and is not in this world of ours. College life and study should not merely he restricted to finding our way among the fields where thorns and thistles grow, and through the cities where all the glory of mighty structures cannot efface the material atmosphere, and the seeking of men after the meat that perishes. My farewell word to you is to seek through all learning the immaterial, the unperishahle and the eternal. In this seeking we will be prepared for the garden of the hereafter. John A. W.

Columbia, 1911; Litt.D., Gettysburg, 1930; Director, National Advisory Council on Radio in Education. Tyson’s Message To the Students of Muhlenberg College:— ' The Editor-in-chief of the 1938 Ciarla has ashed me to send to you a message for publication in your Annual. I am happy to comply with his request even though I have not yet had the pleasure of meeting many of you personally. As a newcomer to the campus and therefore practically a Fresh- man, naturally I am very curious about all things connected with the College. I have been able to satisfy some o f that curiosity and can say frankly that already it is easy to share the enthusiasm for Muhlenberg which everyone connected with the institution seems to have in great abundance. So it should not be difficult to assume my new duties as president next summer in the happy expectation that the fine traditions built so solidly by my predecessors, — Muhlenberg, Sadtler, Seip and Haas—can be maintained successfully and strength- ened materially in the years ahead. It is my earnest hope that all of us, students, faculty, alumni and trustees, will unite in a common purpose to bring to realization the dreams of those who have planned with such unselfish vision the future of Muhlenberg. In this spirit I greet all of you. I am sorry I shall not have the privilege of knowing the members o f the Class of 1937 during their student days, but I hope they, and all other alumni, will come back to their Alma Mater regularly and frequently. I shall look forward with a great deal of pleasure to meeting the student body when Col- lege opens in the fall. Cordially yours. Levering Tyson ROBERT C. HORN, Ph.D., Litt.D.

CiQJtCa Greetings to Students and Alumni: MuKIenberg College has accomplished a great deal in the past; but there is still much to he done. This year, between the retirement of Doctor Haas from the presidency and the coming of Doctor Tyson, who will take charge of the institution in July, has been successful and happy. Under the new administration we look forward to a period of increased service and influence. The denominational college still has a useful task to perform in the sphere of higher education, if it understands its aims and makes progress toward their achievement, and if it merits and re- tains the interest and support of its denomination, its alumni, and its friends. 1 know that our new president will have the loyalty of students and alumni, as well as faculty. When he comes, let us give him every reason to be proud of the institution, whose presidency he has accepted. Robert C.

Mueller, Professor of Amer- ican History, on May 5, 1937 at tfie age of 49 removes from our campus one o f the most scholarly and influential members of the faculty. He was respected by every- body for thorough knowledge of the subjects he taught and for h is ability to lead students into the way of clear thinking and careful preparation. For seventeen years Doctor Mueller served Muhlenberg College faithfully. His wise counsel guided the administration: his advice was sought constantly by his colleagues. Deeply interested in the welfare of all the students, he was respon- sible for our efficient co-operative store and had much to do with the establishment of the Student Loan Fund. In countless ways he w ' orked and planned for a better college. We shall miss him in the days that are to come. ul " Senior Class Officers First Semester Life Officers Frederick Lorish President Frederick Lorish Alvin Roy Yice-President Joseph Nosal George Machajdik Secretary George Machajdik Dean Zweier, Treasurer Senior Class President ' s Message Commencement is a time of mixed emotions, of conflicting loyalties . . . loyalty to tfie past, and loyalty to the future. 1 do not mean to say that these loyalties cannot he reconciled, but at the time of the break, because Commencement marks an end and a beginning, there is definitely a conflict of nos- talgia for the old and familiar, against eagerness for the new and untried. We feel the joy of victory as we approach gradu- ation, for we have attained a goal toward which we have been striving since we hrst entered college as freshmen. Yet, our joy is overcast by the realization that we are leaving a friend who is near and dear to our hearts. Muhlenberg has been a friend who has not only given us a solid foundation in academic subjects but also, in a subtle way, fostered in us Christian ideals of truer and wiser human relation- ships. We have spent four years here at Muhlenberg, four of the most profitable and happy years of our lives. Here we have made friendships that will en- dure and prosper as long as we live. We have been guided along the way by the classes preceding us and by the administration and faculty who have set up ideals which the classes following us may seek to attain. We sincerely hope that we who are about to leave have contributed in some measure to this ever increasing source of inspiration. I feel certain that as we take up our lives beyond Muhlenberg, it will be this intangible heritage which will guide and influence us as we go on. Frederick C. Lorish, Jr. CioJtCa EDWARD A.

McGinley Vice-President Ralph Eagle Secretary Herman Doepper Robert Pharo, Treasurer Junior Class Presidenfs Message The world today cries out for leadership. We, the coming Senior class, must exemplify our ability to lead by taking up the duties left by the present seniors and by endeavoring to carry on the work they started. We hope that in our administration we shall he able to duplicate their fine examples of high scholarship, manliness and leadership in the many phases of campus life. These tasks, which we are about to inherit, as- sume greater magnitude in view of the enviable re- cord which has been achieved by the men of the Class of ’ 37 . However, their work is finished— ours has just begun. May their success serve as a goal to inspire us to even greater heights! Our college life is three-fourths gone! To many of us they have been the three happiest years of our lives. It seems only yesterday that we beheld the faces of our college-chums-to-Le for the first time. Many of those faces have vanished, hut those re- maining march steadily onward. Our sincere hope is that the success sought by each, in the world be- yond the classroom, he granted. But, it is well to re- mind one s self that the attainment of these ultimate hopes depends upon the merit of the individual, and on that alone. Let us trust, that in our college career, we are ac- quiring those intimate associations and friendships which we will hold so dear in later life and that they will further our spirit of co-operation so that we are enabled, as seniors, to carry out those most expres- sive words which are found in our College Commons: For God, for County, and for Muhlenberg. ” Paul A.

Treasurer CiQJtCa ■ J Sophomore Class Prestdenfs Message With the closing of this academic year, we, the Class of 59 , are nearing the half-way mark in our college career. To most of us, these last two years have been a source of much joy and learning. We have crowded a great variety of experiences and achievements into this period. Studies, athletic contests, dramatics, dances, debates, musical organizations, social fra- ternities, and close friendships have all played an im- portant part in these past two years. For us, the tide is just coming in. We have two more years to look forward to. We have cast the mold and are now ready to pour in all our energies for the development of the finished product. But before we proceed too far and hastily, let us ask ourselves whether we have gotten out of college all that we should have. Have we performed the two- fold task of training ourselves to think? and to be- come responsible members of society? The world today does not only demand that you be a thinker, it demands that you be able to get along with the rest of society. Both of these things can be gotten from our college lives, and in securing them, we can leave behind us a better Muhlenberg. Let us strive for an even higher standard of co-operation than we have had the hrst two years. John Dry R. HENRY AHELNl Hanh ichlandtown. Pa. B.S. : Football (l. 2). VERNON S.

Freshman Class FRESHMEN CLASS OFEICERS First Semester Second Semester Carl Billig Carl Billig President Paul Snyder Vice-President Russell Hale Secretary Daniel Petruzzi, Treasurer Paul Snyder Russell Hale (UqjUq Freshman Class President) Message As an expert gardener takes wild plants and carefully develops them, so, Muhlenberg College has taken us, the Freshmen, and has begun this process of cultiva- tion. Many of us were covered with the thorns o f self- esteem, selfishness, and narrow-mindedness. Others were twisted and bent by the lack of self-reliance and personal initiative. The change which has come over us has at times been slow in development, but it is nearing comple- tion. We have lost some of our poor characteristics, and we have begun to realize the true insignificance of ourselves. During our first year in college our scope of knowl- edge has been broadened, new friendships have been made, many of our abilities have been developed, and we have created for ourselves new philosophies of life. With the coming of spring we have passed the threshold of our college life; we have spanned the distance between preparatory school and college. We have become a part of that great group, the student body, bound together forever by loyalty to Muhlen- berg College, our Alma Mater. Carl . Billig CHARLES R. AMBROSE Mose LESLIE A.

Football Resume of the 1936 Football Season Under a new coadiing staff, the 1956 football season gave signs of reviving Hopes for Mufilenberg on the gridiron. The Mul es lost all hut one game in 1955 which Tuade the two victories and one tie against si.x defeats this year appear encouraging. Both victories for the small, aggressive sr]uad were impressive for the endurance and power exhibited. This snajjpy Mule kick was responsible for the defeat of Lafayette for the first time in 18 years to the tune of 19 to 6 . The season was the initial one under Alvin Doggie ” Julian, head coach, and his able assistant, Phil Hillen, for- Wendling, Manager 4 Hillen, Line Coach Julian. Coach mer Villanova star. They gave the team plenty of training hy initiating a strenuous spring practice. Early in September the squad trained at Camp Miller in the Poconos, an innovation for Muhlenberg. Here they received vigorous training in fun- damentals and drill in the plays of the ‘ Julian system. Con- siderable comment on the excellent condition of the players reflected the fine work of the coaches. The Muhlenberg Freshman team upheld the tradition of the past few years and went undefeated in the games with Lafayette, Lehigh and Gettysburg Freshman teams. The Yearlings were under the direction of " Hal Carney, formerly of Albright and " Dick ” Landis formerly of Temple who saw their first year of service at Muhlenberg. The usual credit is due William Scotty’ Ren wick, per- ennial trainer, who takes care of the players regardless of wins or losses. Assisting him this year was Tom Natoli 37 , who has proved himself a real help in that capacity. Outstanding players for the season included the honorary captain, Edward Scrapper Farrell, for his punting and line crashing: William Punchy Laing, for his consistent work as quarterback: Henry Gutekunst, for his fleet-footed trips across many goal lines: Ralph Eagle, for dependability in the pivot position: Kenny Poust, as running guard: ' Mohn- ny Young, as a stalwart tackle always reliable on defense: Adam Matusa, fast-charging and good pass-receiving end: and " Tommy ” Kennedy, plunging back. The annual all-sports dinner was held at the Americas Hotel, December 15 , 1936 , and was sponsored by the Muh- Renwick, Trainer Carrettson. Freshman Manager Carney, Freshman Coach lenberg alumni club o f Allen- town. At that time, the five senior football players received varsity sweaters and certifi- cates. They were Grant Brown, Hempstead, N. Y. ; Edward Farrell, Catasauqua; Tbomas Kennedy, Allentown; Mi Iton Bloom, Newark, N. J.; and William Farrell Laing, Grantwood, N. J. Juniors who received awards were: Ralph Eagle, Royersford; Henry Gutekunst, Perkasie; William Hunsicker, Perkasie; Kenneth Poust, Alburtis; Charles Rep- pert, Hamburg: Raymond Sprow ' , Wilkes-Barre: and John Young, Allentown.

Kennedy MULES vs. LAFAYETTE The 18 -year-old prayer of Muhlenberg men was finally answ ' ered last fall wTen a bew ' ildered Lafayette team w ' as trounced by a Cardinal and Gray team which w ' ould not he stopped. This opener for the season, witnessed by a capacity crowd, was packed with ripping, tearing thrills. With all the metropolitan newspapers giving Lafayette huge odds, the Mul es started in as the underdogs; however, the Muhlenberg hacks tore through the opposition behind beautiful and per- fect-functioning interference to upset that dope and put the crowd in a frenzy. This miracle was due to Doggie Julian s thorough, though strenuous training. The Mules received the opening kick-off and in the first two plays of the period Hen Gutekunst and Ed Farrell made seven yards through the line. A well-executed, deceptive re- verse, Farrell to Gutekunst, sent that fleet-footed Perkasie lad off for a 50-yard dash to the Lafayette 16-yard line. Farrell smashed over the Lafayette goal for the first touchdown. Tom Kennedy place- kicked the extra point. After the kick-off, Ken- nedy intercepted a Lafay- ette pass and dashed, be- hind splendid interference, for the second touchdown. Bill Hunsicker scored the last six-pointer for the Mules in the final period. In a desperate attempt Lafayette managed to put the hall in scoring position and in the final min- utes of play crashed over for a touch- down. Credit cannot he given to any one man for this victory. The team worked like a machine. Score: Muhl- enberg 19, Lafayette 6. Laing MULES vs. PENN STATE TKe following week the Mules renewed gridiron relations wi th the Nittany Li ons after a lapse of two years. The Penn State eleven, reinforced hy excellent replacements, was too fast and too powerful for the smaller Mules. Muhlenberg s deception failed and the aerial attach went hay wire. The Lions showed themselves predominant in every angle of the game. In the final quarter the Mules made a valiant attempt to score with Gutehunst getting off on a beautiful long run from a fake reverse. Outstanding for the Cardinal and Gray were Gutehunst, Farrell, and the “great little guard,” Kenny Poust. Score: Penn State 45 , Muhlenberg 0. MULES us. GETTYSBURG Battling against such hard luck as seldom be- sets a grid eleven, the fighting Mules developed a vicious hick in the last period of their first Con- ference game, October 17, to roll up an impressive score over the Get- tysburg Bullets in a tilt played on the home field. On the rebound from tbe previous week s defeat, the Mules fought as a team composed of men who were in fit condition to provide the toughest kind of op- early minutes to score a touchdown for the visitors. Undaunted, the Bergmen came back in the third quarter to turn the trick with Gutehunst crossing the goal line for two tallies. In the last few minutes Gutehunst on a reverse play around end again crossed the goal line. Working together, Farrell, Hunsicker, Gutehunst, and Laing, man- aged time and again to tear off gains of 15 yards at a time. Two beautiful marches, Poust 80 yards long, were completed by the Mules. The stellar performance of linemen stopped the Bullet backs cold Gettysburg in their tracks. 2 Score: Muhlenberg 19, Brown Bloom . Joe Superka, sterling Bul- let back, provided a thrill by tear- ing through on a long run in the MULES vs. URSINUS A snarling and vicious Bear ambled into the stable of the Mule on October 24 and returned to Collegeville bearing several very fine mule steaks. Not the least of the reasons for the defeat was the Scrapper” Farrell, who was forced to retire when his wrenched during the second half. Up un til his in- jury the Mule s sparkplug was easily the outstanding player on the field, and his loss came as a stunning blow, seeming to demoralize completely the entire team. The Mule s line also suffered a terrific beating with John Young and Dickey Dawe soon following Farrell out of the game. Ursinus clearly deserved its victory with Todt, the big guard for the Bears, loss of leg was Young starring on offense and de- fense. Score: Ursinus 15, Muhlenberg 0. MULES i;s. F. M. The followi ng week the in- jured and somewhat handi- caf)jied Cardinal and Gray eleven journeyed to Lancaster to oppose a strong and shifty Dip- lomat team. Even though the Mules were outweighed to a great extent, they were the first to score. Adam Matusa, who played a great defensive game, blocked an F. M. kick which was recovered by Hummer, a Blue and White back, behind his goal line to give the Julianites a two point safety. Tfie Diplomats scored twice in the second period and again in the third. The fourth period was marked by a sudden and vicious offensive drive by the Cardinal and Gray with “Hen ” Gutekunst as the spearhead of the drive. Time and again he drove his way through the Blue and White 1 ine until he brought the ball to the Diplomat s four yard line. It was first down with goal to go, but the Mules couldn t make it, gaining only three yards in four plays and losing the ball on downs. The game ended shortly after. Score: Franklin and Marshall 20, Mules 2. MULES us. ARMY November 1, the Card inal and Gray eleven went to West Point for “The liattle of the Mules. Many were interested in this game just to see what the Julianites could do against the high stepping Mules of West Point. According to many New York papers the Cadets were favored to win by almost any score they pleased. But even so, the Card inal and Gray surprised the highly rated Cadets and scored the first touch- down of the game on a beautifully executed play with Gutekunst going around left end for the score. Immediately the somewhat be- wildered Army coaching staff sent ten reg- ulars in the battle and the great power and drive proved to be too much for the crippled Card inal and Gray eleven. Score: Army 54, Muhlenberg 7. Eagle MULES vs. LEHIGH A valiant, but crippled. Cardinal and Gray team was downed by a fast and pow- erful Lehigh eleven in the annual game played at Tay- lor Stadium, Bethlehem. A crowd of 9000 spectators wit- Cutekunst nessed one of the roughest, and poorly officiated, games be- tween the two old rivals. The comhined efforts of Pazzetti, Elstrom, and Pennauchi for the Engineers were loo much for the Julianites. However, the Mules recovered sufliciently in the last period to score against the Bethlehem lads with a pass from Farrell to Gutekunst. Final score: Lehigh 26, Mules 6. MULES vs. DICKINSON Unleashing a last minute offensive Muhl enherg gained a tie with the Dickinson Red Devils at Car- lisle November 21. After Dickinson scored a touch- down in the second period, the Mules staged a gal- lant comeback with Gute- kunst going over the 1 ine and Farrell kicking the ex- tra point. The Red Devils retaliated w itk a drive end- ing in another touchdown. Led by Hunsicker, the Mules came hack to Dickinson s two yard line. An inter- ference ruling on an attempted pass put the hall on the one yard line. Farrell plunged across the goal. His try for the extra point was blocked, robbing the Mules of the chance for a victory. The final whistle sounded shortly after. Score: Dickinson 13, Hunsicker Mules 1 3. Reppert MULES us ALBRIGHT Before a large crowd on a bit- ter-cold Thanksgiving day, a powerful Albright team swamped Muhlenberg with a fast, bewildering attack led by its outstanding fullback, Dick Riflle, in a game played at Read ing. The Mules seemed pitifully sub- stitute-starved since the very small squad was riddled with in- ; juries. It seemed as though nothing could effectively stop the charges of the rifle-fire-fast Riffle on his dashes to- ward the goal line. Down but never out, the Mules mustered power and came back in the fourth quarter Sprow with Gutekunst ' going over for two touchdowns— -one on a 98 yard run of an intercepted forward pass. Score Al- bright 70, Mules 13. FRESHMAN FOOTBALL Under two new coaches this year, the Freshman football team worked hard in earning two victories and a tie. Out of an abundance of good material, " Hal ” Carney and Dick” Landis produced several promising yearlings for future Muh- lenberg teams. I In the opening game the freshmen played a scoreless tie with Lafayette. The Leopard cuhs were unahle to make a first down until the final quarter, get- ting three firsts in rapid succession. The Mule line stiffened at the 8 yard line and stopped the scoring threat. The Little Mules made six first downs to four for the visitors. Score: Lafayette ’40, 0, Muhlenberg 40. 0. Led hy Walter Kurowski and Dick Dietrich, two half- hacks, the Frosh took the measure of the Gettysburg Freshmen at Gettysburg. Kurowski. besides scoring one touchdown and two points after touchdowns, also did most of the running, passing, and kicking while Dietrich scored the other two touchdowns. The Little Mules had everything their own way the major part of the game scoring eight first downs to the Bullets four. Score: Muhlenberg ’40, 20; Gettys- burg ’40, 0. Two Cardinal and Gray yearling teams proved their mas- tery over the best that Lehigh Frosh could offer in a game on the Muhlenberg field in an impressive victory. The first quar- ter saw Francis Reichwein run 53 yards through a broken field to score the first touchdown shortly after the kick-off. After a sixty-yard march Charles Burin crashed off tackle for Matusa another touchdown. At this point Coach Carney put in a whole new team. In the second quarter, the Lehigh team scored on a long pass from Cox to Feucht, but just before the half ended the Mules clicked again with Inman tearing around left end for a touchdown. In the final quarter the En- gineers were driven deep into their territory. Simpson blocked an attempted pass which resulted in a safety. Score: Muh- lenberg ’40, 21; Lehigh ’40, 6. The Fresh man football players this year received awards of Cardinal and Gray jackets with class numerals. They were presented at the annual all-sports din- ner. Those who received these awards were: Chari es Ambrose, Charles Burin, Daniel Coyle, Louis DeRosa, Richard Dietrich, Andrew Diefen- derfer, Warren Eberly, Vasco Fenili, Nelson Gra- ham, Walter Kurowski, Albert Inman, Ernest Jones, Lucas Lobb, William Moitz, John Mun- chak, Albert Pascal, Melvin Paul, Francis Reich- wein, Russ Ryker, Will iam Sell. How- ard s imcox, Albert Simpson, John Um- lauf, Tony Venzon, Michael Wassokowich, Peter Yagodzin- ski, Anthony Zuzzio, and Joseph Loibel. Albert Simpson, who was captain throughout the season by virtue of his clever handling of the team, was voted honorary captain for the season. Deitrich Dawe Muhlenberg not only opened the football season with a small and inexperienced squad, but it also marked the inau- gural game for the new coaching staff. All new and all-star was the coaching staff of Muhlenberg College for 1956 . It marked the end of the athletic depression and the beginning of a collegiate prosperity. It marked a fusion of play and a coherence of the best for the best at Muhlenberg. May we then, to get the formalities out of the way in short order, intro- duce, rather briefly. Head Coach Alvin F. Julian, Bucknell, 23 ; Line Coach Phil Hillen, Vi llanova, 30 and Freshman coach Harold Carney, Al- bright, ’ 32 . Alvin F. Julian AI Julian, whom you all know as “Doggie” and will continue to call Doggie , despite all the machinations of the col- lege publicity department to the contrary, is an en- ergetic, swarthy, broad-shouldered man who believes in action rather than words —although he does love to tell stories. Student of this game of football he has played it as a sandlotter, high schooler, col- legian, professional. He’s coached teams, managed teams and promoted teams. He took a fling at professional baseball, even worked in the International league as an McKee umpire for a short spell; and as a basket- Korenko ball official, well, before coming to Muhlenberg his basketball schedule kept him on the go so frequently and so far that his wife and son begged him to leave a picture at home so they could recognize him when he came back from the basketball wars. A strict disciplinarian, he still man- ages to instill enough humor in his pep- per talks to leave the boys feeling fine after a strenuous workout. He won t stand for foolishness at any time and is a hard los- er— as all good coach- es are. Do ggie has a cut and dried philosophy as far as wins and losses are concerned: h e contends that losses are no good whatsoever: ties are much the same as losses and they show that neither team is superior to the other; a bit of brain work will put a tying team in the win column. But wins and only wins is Julian s ultimate aim. He claims that every ball game must have a winner and that if every man uses his head and gives every thing he has in him that that team will come out on top no matter what the odds are against them. Therefore, looking back on this pholosophy, we can only see that Doggie is doing everything in his power to turn out a winning team for Berg. Although the team this past season did not have a long line of wins; anyone that saw Tracy any o f tKe games will say that the small hanclfull of men with which the coach had to work certainly made up in energy and spirit that which they lacked in experience and numbers. On this point, the team must he complimented on the fine spirit and co-operation which they gave the coaching staff throughout the entire season. Although Doggie has been labeled " The Slave Driv- er by some who have witnessed one or two of the practice sessions, the result of this driving, or may w ' e say persistence, will push Berg out of the loss column right over into the win side of the game. But that he manages to give his players more than mere diagrammatic plays from a blackboard is evidenced by the record of twenty-five of his former college players now in the high school or college coaching ranks. Julian is not only interested in producing a winning ball team, but he is also interested in the academic standing of his players. Oftentimes one will see him talking to the boys and incjuiring as to their standing in their classes. He does want the players to think about the game most of the time, but it is not his intention that they should not do justice to their school work. That. in brief is the man Julian who from the early days as a player at Reading High School has absorbed football wisdom which he teaches with rare skill. He starred at Buck- nell and played with the Pottsville Maroons. There is a story related about him in his college days. Julian, in the forepart of the football season, had a few ribs broken, and instead of telling the coach about the injury he went on playing through- out the remainder of the schedule with his side strapped with adhesive tape. This, undoubtedly shows that he is a true lover of the game and that he eats, drinks and talks football in his sleep, not to mention all the time he puts on it during the day. He coached at Albright College and well do Carl Snavely, late of Bucknell, now Cornell, and Dick Harlow, late of Western Maryland, now Harvard, remember those Albright teams. He w ' as a topnotcher in the professional football world at one time, and he coached professional teams and then he took over the Ashland High School team. In three years, his teams won 32 of 35 games, climaxing a wonderful re- cord with the Pennsylvania State Championship in 1935 . His system is very much his own. It may have looked crude in the early part of the season, but wi th the time to iron out the rough spots there was a polished machine with precision. One cannot forget that the material this year was lim- ited— -that injuries took a terrific toll— that as tough Heffner a schedule as ever confronted a small college team was Muh- lenberg’s lot this year. Despite all this we saw a determined band of players under the Julian aegis, withstanding the rigors of sixty minute football and still handing out punish- ment on their own account when the final whistle blew. Phil Hillen Phil Hillen is of the same school of thought as is Julian. Old guard Muhlenberg followers remember Hillen well. Jut- jawed, brawny, terse, Hillen made his mark here as an assist- ant under the then coach George R. Holstrom. The stories of Hillen s work with the linemen have been legendery. And like coach Julian, Hillen has no use for water lilies who are content to lie placidly in a stagnant pool. Phil s most favorite pastime, it would seem, is to have the boys go through a strenuous body contact workout. His favorite expression is " Bust ’em one and wake em up . He has no time for nick- nacks. If the offense is lay- ing down on the job, they will get one of his popular pep talks: and if the de- fense is gold-bricking, they are also in line for a good, also loud, bawling out. One needn’t go any fur- ther than 23rd and Chew’ Streets to know that Phil is hard at work again try- ing to get the boys in shape for another hard game. Although he did not have a heavy line, the opposing teams were well aware of the fact that they knew their business. With the few linemen from this year s team and the material coming up from the freshmen, Phil will have a good solid line to run in front of the back field this coming season. Phil wants action and you 11 see these linemen giving him action or you 11 see Hillen forcing the tempo by a swift change in the line-up as the necessity arises. Phil played at Villanova, coached here and in Western Pennsylvania and is a stalwart chap. And no greater praise could befall any line coach than to be coupled with a man like Hunk Anderson, late of Notre Dame, now South Caro- lina J. Birney Crum, Allentown High school coach, re- marked: “The two best line coaches that I have ever seen work are Hunk Anderson and Phil Hillen. Harold Carney Harold Carney, a comparative newcomer in contrast to Julian and Hillen who are well known in Allentown because of their former exploits, is a fitting aid to complete the triangle of coaches. Julian terms him one of the finest linesmen he has ever coached in his eleven years. Carney assisted Julian prev- iously and has coached semi-professional teams in Reading. He had an estimable record at Albright and has proven an able leader for the tyros of today who make the stars of tomorrow. McDonough Head Cheerleader, Merritt FrankenfielcI Cheerleaders Oliver H. Gruver Carroll H. Hudders, Jr. Michael J. Mylymuk 1937 Spring Practice The 1957 foothall season got under way on March 13th aspirants from an outdoor workout the opening day of her of men reporting, 26 of them were from the past season s freshman football squad. Although a heavy snow ' kept the aspirants from an out-door w ' orkout the opening day of practice, the second day found the hoys on the hack end of a shovel clearing the field o f the newly fallen snow ' . Funda- mentals were stressed during the whole month of practice, emphasis being put on blocking and tackling. Teams were picked from among the squad, and many heated scrimmages ensued. Coach Julian put the hnishing touches on the spring ses- sion w ' ith a closely contested intra-squad game, neither team having the edge over the other. 1957 FOOTBALL SCHEDULE September 23 Catawba Allentown October 2 Lafayette Easton October 9 Lebanon Valley Allentown October 16 Franklin Marshall Lancaster October 23 Ursinus Collegeville October 50 Gettysburg Gettysburg November 6 Drexel Allentown November 1 3 Lehigh Bethlehem November 20 Dickinson Allentown November 23 Albright Reading CiaJtCa Basketball Basketball With the playing of the last haskethall game on March 5, IQ37, against the Buchnell Bisons, the Mule cfuintet brought to a close a fairly successful season under the tutelage of the new coach, Alvin Doggie Julian. Losing to the Bisons gave Muhlenberg a record of 9 victories and 9 defeats. Of the eighteen games scheduled, twelve were with oppo- nents in the Eastern Pennsylvania Collegiate League includ- ing Drexel, Lebanon Valley, Albright, Franklin and Mar- shall, Ursi nus and Gettysburg. Bettering their mark of last year when they ended fifth in the league, the Mules battered out to a draw with Lebanon Valley in third place, both teams finishing with six wins and a like number of defeats. The hopes of Muhlenberg rested upon an almost entirely new team. At the pivot position was John " Stretch” McKee, a sophomore, standing fully six feet four inches in height. Gene Grossman and John Martin, both seniors, and Frank Tracy, another sophomore, adec(uately handled the forward berths. Jimmy Kohler and Lee Deitrick. junior and sophomore, filled the guard positions for the Mules. As the spearhead of the attack. Stretch McKee led the scoring with 155 points Grossman and Tracy were not far behind with 1 13 and 110 points, respectively. Grossman led the team in scoring last year. A hard foe had been scheduled for the Mules opening cage tussle with Drexel in the Philadelphia gym, January 6 and, although holding the Dragons to two field goals in the first half, the Cardinal and Gray courtmen slowed down and allowed the Black and Gold team to come out on top, 52 to 24, Deitrick showed cham- pionship style with his floorwork and excellent backboard play Also for the Mules, " Doc” Kern, was high with five points. January 9, the Leopards of Lafayette went on a rampage in their own den, succeeding in tearing off a 42 to 28 victory. The brand of basketball dis- played by the Mules was not quite good enough to enable the Cardinal and Zimmernnan, Varsity Manager Gray boys to bait tbe Leopards wdio were in Ironl throughout the game. For Muhlenberg, both McKee and Grossman played a smart type of offensive and defensive play, registering 8 points apiece. Captained by William Punchy Laing, senior letlerman. the Cardinal and Gray team won 28 to 25 over the Albright Lions, January 13. This game, played in the Central Y. M. C. A. in Reading, marked the lirst Conference vic- tory for the Mules. The conflict was far from tame, having for diversion two fights which bordered on the ' free-for-all . Grossman s four points in the closing minutes gave the Mules their victory. Holding a 20 to 16 lead at the end of the first half, and vainly attempting to hold their own in the second half, the crusading Cardinals dropped a hard-fought court battle, d2-58, to tbe superior Diplomats at Franklin and Marshall, January 16, at the Allentown High School court, opening the home season. The failure of the Card inals to con- vert from the charity line, and a last minute rally by F. M., saw the Diplo- mats slice Muhlenberg’s lead. For tlie Mules Stretch ” McKee and Martin gathered 10 points each; Martin s long range shooting providing some of the evening s thrills. Winning their second Conference game. January 18, the Mules showed the smooth- est form of the season by tritnming Albright again 42 to 26. This was sweet revenge for the severe football defeat suffered at the hands of the Lions last fall. Deitrick displayed again his excellent floor work with McKee making himself invalu- able under the hoop. Behind at half time 12 to 10, the Cardinals snagged five field goals and two fouls in the second half to defeat the Drexel Dragons at the “Little Palestra ”, January 30. In turning the tables on the Drexel lads, the Mules showed clever w ' eaving and passing along with accurate shooting by Deitrick and Grossman. The former led tbe scoring witb 8 jjoints, aiding considerably in the third Conference victory. February 3 at Lebanon, the Mules suffered defeat at the hands of Lebanon Valley Dutchmen. It was a rather slow, close game, the Dutch nosing out the Mules, 49 to 44. Floor honors went to " Punchy Laing who presented great style in his passing and weaving, with McKee and Tracy collect- ing 10 points apiece. The score at half-time was 25 to 21 for I-ebanon Valley. The Mules lost another close Conference game, February 6 in the Allentown High palestra, to Gettysburg, 32 to 31. The game was fast and furious throughout, with Tracy find- ing the basket six times during the night, twice from the cen- ter of the floor. The Mules led the scoring all through the game until the last three seconds when Joseph Yevak, Get- tysburg guard, made a spectacular one-handed shot from the center of the floor. As the ball swisbed through the net the bell sounded spelling defeat for a stunned Muhlenberg crowd. Jaffe, Freshman Manager The Mules journeyed to Collegeville February 10, determined to take the Ursi- nus Bears, and did, 55 to 22. Leading by only two points at the beginning of tbe second half. 19 to 17, the Julianites came out to overwhelm the Ursinus five, col- lecting fourteen points while the Collegeville lads could garner only five points. This was another league victory for the Mules placing them fourth so far w ' ith four wins and a like number of losses. A last-quarter ra lly which cut a Bucknell lead from 1 5 points to 5 was not sufficient to turn the tide at Lewisburg, February 12, and the result was a 48 to 45 victory over the Mules. The first half w as fought on an even basis, the score being 24 to 22 at the half way mark. When the Bisons started to pull away by a thirteen-point mar- gin the Mule offense took hold, but even the stellar perform- ance of the rangy center, McKee, w ' ho gathered 18 points, was insufficient to pull the game out of the bag. Playing their second game in two nights, the Cardinal and Gray basketeers scored a 51 to 25 victory over tbe Lehigh Engineers in a game played in the Taylor gymnasium, at Beth- lehem, February 1 5. On the rebound from the Bucknell loss the Grossman Cardinals displayed rare form in taking the Lehigh boys. Gene Grossman, cagy guard, led the scoring with nine points. Displaying its poorest brand of basketball of the year, the Cardinal and Gray five suffered a 56 to 25 setback at the hands of Hen Bream’s Gettysburg Bullets. February 17, in the Eddie Plank Memorial gymnasium on the Gettysburg campus. Tbis was the second time the Mules lost a Conference game to the Bullets. The game was slow and sluggish. At half-time the Bullets led 17 to 11. February 20, the Mules presented the Ursi- nus Bears with the latter’s eighth consecutive league defeat of the season. The game, played in the Little Palestra, fea- tured the close guarding and fine defense work on the part of the Cardinals. At half time the count was 21 to 8 for the Julian quintet. A swift rally by the Bears at the start of the second half was soon Martin checked, and the final score read 56 to 25 for the Mules. The diminutive Frank Tracy led the scoring for the Mules with 14 points, making some beautiful floor shots in doing dam- age to the Bears. One of the roughest and most excit- ing games ever played by the Mule quin- Laing tet on the floor of the Little Palestra was witnessed hy a ca- pacity crowd, February 22, which saw Lehigh defeated in an extra period 39 to 37. In the extra period Martin, substitute for Deitrich, scored a basket, McKee dropped in another for good measure. Then the Engineers tried hard hut all in vain for they succeeded in getting only one two-pointer. For the Mules, Frank Tracy proved to be the sensa- tion garnering 13 points. McKee was not far behind him with 10 points. The league leading Oiplomats again proved their supremacy when they defeated the Mules by a score of 52 to 29 in a game played in Lan- caster, February 24. By playing bang-up ball the first half, the Cardinals held the league champions to 22 points while they scored 15. The secon d half, however, the de- fense was on the proverbial skids, the Mules only racking up 14 Feyrer points to the Diplomats 30. Captain Grossman was high scorer for the Mules wi th 12 points. Coming up from behind in the secon d half, the Mules won their last league contest Zweier from Lebanon Valley in a game (ilayed a t the Little Palestra, Feb- ruary 27. This conference victory, 43 to 41. assured ihe Cardinals of a third place lie with Lebanon Wiley in the final ratings. The ball game was nip and tuck throughout but the irrepress ible Tra- cy saved the ni ght with a shot that gave the Mules their well- earned victory. Grossman led the scoring with 10 (mints while McKee, McKee Kohler, and Deitrick took the honors for their stellar guarding and clever passing all during the game. The Leopards of Lafayette were jolted out of their spots when the Mules defeated them 33 to 23. in the Little Palestra, March 3. The Cardinals looked bad at the start but soon sna]3ped back, to outplay Lafayette in all departments of the game. In one of the best games of the season, March 5, with Bucknell at the Little Palestra, the Mules were finally de- feated by the close score of 37 to 33. Seven times du ing the game the teams were in a deadlock, finally at 33-33, before the Bisons forged ahead. The Mules, though ending on the short side of the count, made a fine and brilliant showing for their last contest of the year. Twelve Year Resume O ver a stretch of twelve years Muhlenberg’s basketball teams have been fairly consistent in winning games and in their scoring proclivities. In that time, from 1926 to 1937, Cardinal and Gray clad basheteers have won 100 games for the Alma Mater out o f 207 played. The opposition, in winning seven more games than the home talent did, outscored the Cardinals 6647 points to 6610 points. Among some odd and interesting facts garnered from a persual of data gathered from the moldering records is the fact that Muhlenberg laced Long Island University, 44 to 26, in 1932. Shortly after that the Black Birds of the Metropolitan area went on their winning ways to attract nation-wide atten- tion with their manner of playing on the wooden ways and their propensity for winning games consecutively. Another fact is the annual Metropolitan tour taken by Muhlenberg basketball teams. Usually taken during the Christmas vacation, the coursters had quite a time in and around the Big City, meeting several of the fast college teams from the district and managing to gain their share of victories. Another fact is the close approach to the individual scoring mark for a season made by Gene Grossman of the current senior class. In 1936 Gene, playing on a team which won only five of twenty-one games, scored 190 points, quite a remark- able achievement, but his effort was topped by the finest basktball scorer Muhlenberg has had in many a year, George Lawson, who tabbed 196 points in 1928 when his team won six games of seventeen played. Which indicates that his aver- age per game was considerably better than Grossman s. 1935 Best Arthur “Legs Leibensperger, tallest center Muhl- enberg has had for some time, isn’t far behind in the individual net-ringing ability. He netted 188 points in 1935 from a nineteen game schedule. That 1935 team was the best in twelve years. Coached by John L. Utz the team really consisted of five seniors who played practically the entire schedule without substitution, scored fourteen victories in nineteen games, and rolled up the great- est number of points registered by a Muhlenberg team in any one season. The " Thirty-fiv- ers rimmed the hoop for 723 points and held the opposition to 613 markers. They also had the best league record of Muh- lenberg teams in the six-year-old colle- giate conference, nabbing nine wins from the twelve game schedule to finish second to a fine Gettysburg team.

Those two seasons stand out as the high- light years of the scene now being reviewed and mark the only two years in that time in which Muhlenberg basketball teams scored victories in the double digit columns. The 1957 array of basketball men scored nine vic- tories and nine defeats. In winning nine games. Coach A1 Julian s first basketball club at Muhlenberg tied a mark made by five other teams in the past decade and two years. Way back in 1926, Harry A. Benfer, Muhlenberg s regis- trar, was coaching the athletic teams and the seasons compilations bear mute testimony to the effectiveness of his tutelage. In 1926 the team won nine, lost six; added nine more wins the following year and seven losses and then plummeted in 1928 with six victories and eleven defeats. But in those three years shone the out- standing basketballer for sheer con- sistency. He was the aforementioned George Lawson, former Norristown High Heffner twelve school star, at present in the ranks of the teaching profession. Lawson tabbed 161 points in 1926; bet- tered that the following year with only one addi- tional game by scoring 178 points and then winding up in 1927 with a mark of 196 points for seven- teen games in a losing sea- son while his team as a whole garnered hut 474 points to the opposition s 535.

Leb- anon Valley and Gettysburg were new-comers on the Car- dinal and Gray schedule. Lebanon Valley had not been met on the diamond since 1Q27. From a standpoint of wins and losses, the 1936 Muhlen- berg nine had an unenviable record of 2 victories and 8 defeats. The Lehigh game was washed out at the end of the fourth inning because of rain with the Mules in the lead by 10 to 9. The Cardinal and Gray nine was coached by William A. Gutteron, former Universitv of Nevada star. He formerly served as coach in the California High schools and as head coach of Bellefonte Aca- demy. MUI.ES vs. LAFAYETTE The Mules opened the season in a very promising fashion by defeating the Lafayette Leopards at Easton, April 22, with a smashing 6 to 2 victory. Harry Ooc Kern did a good job of hurling for the Mules. The vic- tory was all the more commendable because three freshman players, Erank Tracy, Wilson Dietrich, and Adam Matusa, made their debut in college baseball. Matusa contributed heavily toward the Mule s victory with three timely hits. R. H. E.

The game was featured by the heavy hit- ting of the Philadelphia col- legians who amassed a total of twenty-one hits, includ- ing five home-runs. Evan Bartleson started on the mound for the Cardinal and Gray, but was soon forced to the showers under a volley of hits. Doc Kern went in as a relief pitcher, but was V’ Gutterton, Coach 7hC CcQJlii Green Nosal unable to stem tbe tide.

Once again the hostile hat swung fully as the Penn Athletic Club baseball team turned bach the Mules. 17 to 5, in a game played at the Phillies hall park in Phila- delphia, May 2. Two pitchers were used by the Cardinal and Gray in a vain endeavor to check the powerful Pennac hitting. " Doc Kern started the game, and was replaced by Sell in the fourth. Pour errors by the Muhlenberg infield contributed heavily toward the seventeen runs scored by the Philadelphians.

The game was a see-saw affair; but the Mules were in the lead by a score of 10 to 9 when the game was called because of rain. The Engineers pounded Sell for five runs in the first inning and collected three more in the second, and one in the third. The Mules came right hack to score two in the second, five in the t hird and three in the fourth inning to take the lead.

For five innings, Kern, Muhlenberg s pitcher, and Billet, Lebanon Valley s hurler, were masters of the game. In the sixth inning the Cardinal and Gray ball players played loosely allowing the Dutchmen to score their first run, following with one more in the sixth, and two in the seventh.

The fact that these men won seven out of twelve matches last season detracts no whit from their capabilities but attests to their stellar play against high-calibre teams. Washed out at Haverford by rain the tennis team opened the season at Lehigti. Weather conditions prevented the team from practicing on the Oakmont courts, forcing the racquet wielders to go to Lehigh without a man having played a single set prior to the match. Muhlenberg lost 8 matches to I to a team already in fine shape after several weeks of training. At Albright the Mides jiroved their mettle by trouncing the Reading team 8 to 1 . Don Pichaske, a new-comer to the team, was the only man to lose a match. A marked improvement was noted in the play of the Mules. Ursinus was the second victim of the Mules in as many days, the Collegeville team doing no better than Albright, as Muhlenberg again won 8 to 1. The men played well and showed evidence of near- ing top form. Faring slightly better than Albright and Ursinus, Lebanon Valley was the next to fall before Muhlen- berg s court stars. Playing consistently good tennis the Mules earned a clean-cut 7 to 2 victory in the first home match. The Mules went on to take their fourth consecutive win, this one over the traditional rival, Lafayette. Playing their best tennis, every Muhlenberg player polis bed off his opponent to give the Leopards a whitewashing, 9-0. In one of the most heart-breaking losses o f the season, the Mule netmen fell before Franklin Marshall team by the narrowest of margins as the victory string was snapped, 5 - 4 . At least three match- es could have gone ei ther way, but the Diplomats carried the horse shoes, winning every one of the three set duels. Seegers hung up his sixth straight singles victory to remain undefeated for the seasons play. The boys from Swarthmore had too many shots for the Muhlenberg team and the latter went down to a 6 to 3 defeat. There remained one consolation for the Mules when Seegers came through with his sev- enth win for the season to keep his record intact. Coming up from Philadelphia to test the Muhlen- berg netmen, the Temple Owls were no match for the Cardinals and went home with a stunning 8 to 1 de- feat. Fischer was the only homester to lose, dropping a prolonged three set tussle. The Mules seemed to be off on another winning streak as they took into camp Dickinson, 6 to 3 on the Oakmont courts. Two of the three matches won by Dickinson were three set affairs. Seegers, after winning eight consecutive matches, hnally, met his Waterl oo in Wertz, who stroked his way to a clean-cut, three set victory over the unassuming local lad. Our boys tackled too many tennis luminaries on the New Brunswick team, as Rutgers had little difficulty in polishing off the scrappy Mules 8-1, in spite of the fact that Herzenberg started them off with an impressive win in the number one match. But this proved to he the only point the boys could garner. Dr. John V. Shankweiler s netsters lost a " heart- breaker” to Gettysburg, 3 - 4 . Sweeping the first four singles matches, the Berg netmen seemed well on their way to another win, when they began to falter badly, allowing the Bullets to take the remaining five matches, including all three doubles matches. To show that they could come back easily after their defeat by the G Burg Bullets, the Cardinal net- men blanked the Moravian racquet-wielders 9 to 0 to administer their second whitewashing of the season. Only Tom Hartman s match went to three sets. Seegers and Koch proved to be the individual stars as far as mathematical records are concerned, each winning ten matches and losing two. But Herzenberg, although losing four, provided the thrills and exhibited the finest playing for the lover of the sport. He always displayed a steady powerful game and lost only after putting up a grand fight. With the first six men seniors, and now out of col- lege, we can realize that it will be a long time before Muhlenberg will again be able to put on the courts as fine a tennis team as represented it in 1935 and 1936 and brought to it a great deal of attention among the followers of collegiate tennis. Dr. John V. Shankweiler Dubbed “Valentine” and “Three Set John” by his friends. Dr. John V. Shankweiler, Muhlenberg s unostentatious head of the biology department, is of as many facets as those two nicknames are as widely-divergent in character. Graying slightly at the temples, deep set eyes in a summer-tanned face. Dr. Shankweiler, Coach slightly 1 ined from constant straining in photographic dark rooms and on sun-bright clay tennis courts, “Dr. John is a man s man and enjoys the whole-hearted co-operation of his students who like him even though some of his hygiene lectures should bore them to distraction so near the lunch hour once a week. He has coached tennis at Muhlenberg from the 1933 season on and has given to Muhlenberg many splendid tennis records. Invariably Dr. Shankweiler (who gained the cognomen of Three Set John from his ability to whittle away at the skill of superior tennis opponents in that many sets) bobs up in the athletic department with a spring schedule of four- teen or more tennis matches with as many colleges on the slate. And the colleges he schedules are some which are not ordinarily seen on Muhlenberg schedules. This season s record is a splendid example of his taste in booking collegiate games for his netmen. Rutgers, Haverford, Swarthmore, Temple are teams in ques- tion and there s not a repeat on the schedule. Home and home matches are booked with a team playing here one season and entertaining Muhlenberg the following spring on its own courts. Tennis has climbed several notches in the estima- tion of the student body since the Shankweiler influ- ence. And his players love it because the sport is now listed among Muhlenberg s major athletic teams and because the good doctor is “mine host” an- nually to his entire tennis team at a fine dinner in his own home “out in the country.” Besides his tennis duties and his class work. Dr. John finds time to take motion pictures of student Koch Herzenberg Fisher and alumni activities on the campus; to snap ' stills of campus scenes; to do all his own photographic work; to act as advisor to the Pre-Medical Club; to achieve a well-deserved reputation for picking ’ medical students; to give a dinner to the fifteen pre- meds who will matriculate at six medical schools in the fall of 1957; to make his radio dehut this month; to act as treasurer of the Alumni Association; to at- tend the Penn-Cornell game annually in Philadel- phia; and to read " Esquire , " Coronet” and in- variably, the " Philadelphia Inquirer.’ ’ All in all, the Ciarla of 1958, like the Ciarla of 1957 which dedi- cated its hook to Dr. Shankweiler, thinks he’s a “great guy.” 1956 TEAM RECORD Mules Lehigh 1 Albright 8 Urs inus 8 Lebanon Valley 7 Lafayette 9 F.

Last year the Conference adopted a new ruling in which first year men could partici- pate in Conference meets. The Cardinal and Gray trackmen were entered in hut three meets during the season. At the Penn Relays at Philadelphia, Coach Wil- liam ’Scotty” Renwick s team finished ninth in a field of thirteen teams. William Laing, Grant Brown, Henry Gutekunst and James Ware were Muhlen- berg’s representatives in the mile relay. In the only dual meet o f the season, the Mules put up a very stubborn fight in every event, losing to the St. Joseph Hawks, 72 to 53. The competition was keen, and the dual meet, the first home meet in sev- eral years, was very successful. The Mules were es- pecially strong in the dashes and shorter runs but the lack of material for the mile and longer events caused their downfall. Henry Gutekunst and Don Gibson were first place winners for the Cardinal and Gray. The third performance of Coach Renwick’s track- men was at the first Eastern Collegiate Conference track meet held at Carlisle to place last among six contenders.

Phi Kappa Tau managed to score enough points in this event to beat off the belated rush ol the Non-Frats, and to win the College Intramural championship for the first time. Theta Kappa Nu, victorious in 1934 and 1935 , finished fifth in the final standings. From the very beginning of the race for the cup, emblematic o f the championship, it was a nip and tuck battle between tbe Phikatys and the Non-Frats with the A.T.O. s and the Delts constantly threaten- ing the leaders. Not until the final event of the pro- gram, the track and field meet, was finished was there any let-cI own in the strenuous competition. At no time was any team certain of its prospects for final victory. Each remained confident of its poten- tial abilities, and each fought hard to the finish. No sport was more indicative of the thrilling competitive spirit than basketball. Defeating the Phi- katys, the Non-Frats maintained an undefeated rec- ord, but the fraternity team came right back and accomplished the same feat in playground ball. All teams were more evenly matched in tennis and VO Hey ball.

Dramatics were in a miserable state. During the scholastic year 1933-1936, t here was a revival of interest and the Gamma Mu chapter was reinstated. At present the fraternity has 138 chapters covering the continent from Maine to California and extending into Canada.
