Containing complete facilities for college sports, the S5500 000 building is a fitting memorial to the Muhlenberg men who served in the armed forces and will provide the basis for an extensive physical education program. The Field House, the finest and most modern in Pennsylvania, is to contain a basketball court seating approximately 6500 persons, a swimming pool, a 1 X 7 mile track, facilities for the high jump, broad jump, pole vault, and other track and field events, and football, baseball, and tennis practice areas. In addition to offices and locker rooms, space is provided for boxing, wrestling, and even for bowling alleys. Coupled with the College's new Physical Education Department, the Field House will provide the facilities so that Muhlenberg can offer training leading to a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical -Education. 1141 A Word of Introduction . . . HIS 1947 Ciarla is the first year-book to be published at Muhlenberg College since June of 1943. War-time conditions have been responsible for this situa- tion. When war came, American education met its challenge and was to no small degree responsible for the victory. While colleges played their part in the war effort with research and words, books and theories, techniques and training, the war years stamped their impression on all colleges. Terms were accelerated, three semesters to the year. Enlistments and the draft plucked students from the campus, and the government training programs enrolled new men in the schools. Amid all this activity, college life and spirit continued to live. Although civilian enrollment shrank at Muhlenberg, over two thousand service men trained under the shadow of the old Ad Building Tower in a tremendously successful program. Some activities were curtailed, but many more continued. Sports were encouragedg Muhlenberg basketball squads attained national prominence. Throughout these war years the aim continued to be a Greater Muhlenberg- a college for the more perfect development, spiritually, mentally, and physically, of a democratic citizenry. Typical of the progress made toward this goal is the giant Field House, pictured at left, a significant addition to the college plant and toward the completion of a greater Muhlenberg. The pages of this book are an attempt to recapture some of the memorabilia of the last three years at Muhlenberg. Although there are naturally some omissions, the aim of the 1947 Ciarla is to portray life here at Muhlenberg-how a college served in war and builds in peace.

One of the first colleges in America to be selected as a training center for the men urgently needed to plug the gaps in the nation's battle lines at sea and in the air, it not only completed its military assignments with distinction, but also continued to meet its obligations to those students able to continue their education as civilians and to thecommunity that looked to it for leadership in the field of Adult Education. Through the years it operated its accelerated war-time program that divided the academic year into three terms of sixteen weeks each, Muhlenberg's student body ranged from a low of 265 men to a peak of 726. Except for two terms, the men in uniform far outnumbered those in mufti. The years of war were years of change but the changes were only in externals. The campus became accustomed to bugle calls, to men in uniform marching to classes and drilling on the playing field, to military reviews and inspections. Friend- ships were formed more quickly, for students counted their stay on the campus in months rather than years. There were new faces on the Faculty and new person- alities on the staff. There were new rules and a new jargon. Underneath, however, Muhlenberg was still Muhlenberg. Its campus remained friendly and democratic. Its academic program continued thorough and basic, emphasizing those subjects at the heart of the liberal arts curriculum that has always been its pride. Its Faculty, centered about those who for years were part of the College's life, manifested the same interest in each individual student that long has been recognized as one of Muhlenbergls outstanding characteristics. The College reiterated for military and civilian students alike its oft-repeated ideal that no education is complete unless it prepares a man to discharge all of his duties properly in this world and qualities him for the rewards and employments of eternity. Echoes of the Bicentennial celebration in which the College honored the family of Colonial American patriots whose name it bears were still ringing across the campus when the first pages of a new chapter in its history were being written. Preparing for its new student body in which men in uniform would far out- number civilians, an augmented College staff converted East Hall and West Hall Left: The spacious College Library, located in the midst of the Big Three-The Ad Build- ing, the Library, and the Science Building. E111 into barracks and set up civilian dormitories in the Alpha Tau Omega and Phi Kappa Tau fraternity houses that had been leased by the College. Additions to the Commons were completed. An infirmary and dispensary were established in the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity house. Navy gear arrived by the truckload and gold braid became almost commonplace. That the war-time student body had been correctly estimated became evident on July 1, 1943 when the first semester of the new college year began. For that term Muhlenberg enrolled 596 men, 142 of them civilians and the remainder a group of former civilians as new to their Navy Blue or Marine Green uniforms as they were new to the campus. Proportions continued almost the same for more than a year -144 civilians and 418 military trainees on March 1, 1944, and 111 civilians and 425 trainees on July 1, 1944. Not until 1944, when V-12 units across the country were sharply reduced, did Muhlenberg's enrollment drop below the 500 level. Then, with 277 Bluejackets and 127 civilian students registered, it was possible to again use part of West Hall for civilians. There was another reduction in March 1945 when the student body totalled only 505 men, 192 of them Navy trainees and 113 civilians. While the V-12 training units were on the campus, military students and civilians attended the same classes, took part in the same activities, enjoyed joint social affairs. All men assigned to the program by the Navy were registered as Muhlenberg students and, except for their military drills and the more rigid per- sonal discipline, their work on the campus paralleled that of a normal student body. The picture changed in July 1945 when the V-12 units were replaced by the newer Naval Academic Refresher Training program QV-52 under which men who had seen service with the Fleet and had been selected as officer candidates were sent to the campus for special studies that were organized for them apart from the normal college curriculum. During the two terms the program was in operation, training units varied from 123 to 506 men assigned for eight-week periods. Civilian enrollment in July of 1945 was 142 and in November of that year increased to 301. Muhlenberg reached a new peak in March 1946 when returning veterans swelled the civilian enrollment to 568. At the same time the College began its last term as a Navy training center with a V-12 unit of 158 men. Although acceleration of the academic program and the extra chores and duties assigned to Navy men sharply reduced the time available for participation in normal extra-curricular activities, many of the traditions of campus life at Muhlenberg were continued. The Muhlenberg Weekly missed few issues during the war years, even though there were times when an entire issue was written, proofread, and made up by the editor himself. Publication of the Ciarla was, however, tempor- arily suspended after the Class of 1944 issued its volume in the Spring of 1943. A Student Council composed of civilians and military trainees set the pattern for campus life and preserved at least some of the customs that through the years Right: the Science Building, home of the Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Geology De- partments, as well as the College Little Theater.

Class lines were practically obliterated and regulations for Freshmen, permitted to enter College at the beginning of each sixteen-week term, were eliminated. Only class scrap to survive the war years was the annual tug-of-war held yearly over Cedar Creek. In place of the Junior Prom and the Senior Ball, normally held once each year, a formal Graduation Ball was held at the end of each term. Student Council sponsored many other informal dances and, at least once each term, Navy men entertained at a dance to which they invited the civilian student body. Bands and drum and bugle corps were organized on several occasions, but their principal function was to play for reviews and inspections of the Navy units. The Chapel Choir had a continuous existence through the war years, although it made only a few appearances away from the campus. It was a matter of considerable satisfaction both to those remaining on the campus and to Muhlenberg men in all corners of the world that before each Christmas holiday the College community gathered about the large spruce tree on the front campus to sing carols and hear a brief greeting from President Tyson. During the years when restrictions made it impossible to illuminate the tree with the customary blue globes, red flares suihced to preserve the tree-lighting tradition. Mask and Dagger produced at least one show each term, its offerings includ- ing "Squaring the Circle", "The Poor of New York", "Death Takes a Holiday", "Volpone", "journey's End", "Macbeth", "The Rope", and "Shadow and Sub- stance". A joint committee of the Faculty and Student Body arranged for a series of assembly programs that brought lecturers and entertainers to the campus and various community groups cooperated in providing entertainment and social func- tions for the men of the Navy units. I One of the major social events that gained Muhlenberg nation-wide recog- nition was the Coca Cola "Spotlight Band" broadcast that brought Vaughn Monroe to the College community to salute the men of the second Navy training unit. More than 130 stations in a coast-to-coast chain carried the program and the Rain- bow Room at Central Park was jammed for the dance that followed. The Kiwanis Club and the Allentown Woman's Club combined for several informal dances and parties and the Lehigh County USO brought its shows and special attractions to the campus. More recognition came to the College when the United States Maritime Com- mission named one of its new troop-carrying Victory ships the SS MUHLENBERG VICTORY and selected Mrs. Levering Tyson as its sponsor. The vessel was launched at the Bethlehem-Fairfield yards in Baltimore on july 12, 1946 and made its first test 'run a month later. In another few weeks it went into service to return men from the European theatre and when those assignments were completed, it was converted into a cattle ship to help replenish Europe's war-depleted larder. It was also during the war years that Muhlenberg launched the campaign to Left, top: East Hall, the Upper Class dormitory: bottom, West Hall, the Freshman Dor- mitory. V U51 make possible its proposed new Field House-a drive that to date has brought in nearly SB420,000 of the s5oo,o0o that will be the minimum needed to erect the building as soon as materials become available. The College's last civilian commencement was held in June 1943 when Louis P. Lochner, former chief of the Associated Press Bureau in Germany and Central Europe spoke as degrees were conferred on a class of fifty-one seniors. Through the years the accelerated program was in operation commencement exercises, each of which brought a top-ranking Naval officer to the campus, were held at the close of every term. In October 1945, Rear Admiral Louis E. Denfeld, Assistant Chief of the Bureau of Naval Personnel, spoke as seventeen seniors received degrees and seventy-one Bluejackets and Marines were presented with special certificates. Rear Admiral Wat T. Cluverius, Naval veteran recalled to special duty, was the speaker in February 1944 when sixteen seniors were graduated and 125 trainees completed their college work. In june 1944 Captain john Kelvey Richards, then commandant of the Midshipmenis School at Columbia and Director of Training in the Third Naval District, spoke to the thirty-three seniors and the 129 Bluejackets and Marines who received degrees or certificates. Captain Arthur S. Adams, Director of the Administration Division of the Navy's Training Activity, was the speaker for the graduation ceremonies in October 1944 when the College conferred fourteen degrees and awarded 160 certificates to Navy men. At the same ceremonies the unit was reviewed by Captain James Holloway, then Director of Training in the Bureau of Naval Personnel and now Superintendent of the Naval Academy at Annapolis. In February 1945 Dr. joseph W. Barker of the Columbia University Faculty, war- time special assistant to the Secretary of the Navy, delivered the commencement address and the College conferred ten degrees and awarded sixty-seven certificates. In june 1945 Rear Admiral William M. Fechteler, Assistant Chief of Naval Per- sonnel, spoke to the group that included ten seniors and 180 Naval trainees. Speakers at three commencements for men of the Academic Refresher units were Lieutenant Samuel W. Miller '26, Lieutenant Commander Winfred Slemmer '26, and Rear Admiral O. S. Colclough, Judge Advocate General of the Navy. In June 1946, when the College held its last combined graduation ceremonies and awarded sixty baccalaureate degrees and 129 Navy certificates, and itself received the Navy's Mark of Commendation, the speaker was Vice-Admiral Richard L. Conolly, Deputy Chief of Naval Operations. As Muhlenberg made the temporary Faculty adjustments necessary to main- tain teaching standards and at the same time meet the needs of a student body that generally numbered more men in uniform than in sports jackets, it also sought to strengthen its staff for the post-war period. Added to the Faculty as full professors prior to july 1, 1946 were: Dr. John W. Doberstein, chaplain and professor of Religion, Dr. Elmer K. Kilmer, professor of Education, and Floyd B. Schwartz- walder, professor of Physical, Education and head football coach. More joined the ranks as assistant professors and as instructors and others came and left when Right, top: The College Commonsg bottom, The President's Home. L 161 U1 J 5?

During the war years five Faculty men and two members of the Administrative Staff served in the nation's armed forces and another distinguished himself with the National Defense Research Council's development of the V-T Fuze. During part of the war period the first woman ever to be elected to a full professorship at Muhlenberg, Dr. Bertha Paulssen, enriched the life of the College community through her work as professor of Sociology. It was also during these years that five men who completed long and dis- tinguished service on the campus were granted the retirement they had earned. Given honorary Faculty ranks were Dr. Robert R. Fritsch, professor of English Bible and a member of the Faculty for thirty-eight years prior to his retirement, Dr. Isaac Miles Wright, professor of Education, who was associated with the College for twenty-six years, Dr. Harry Hess Reichard, professor of German for twenty years, Walter L. Seaman, assistant professor of Romance Languages for nineteen years, and the Reverend Charles B. Bowman, who had been professor of Sociology for twenty years. It was through the consistent and thorough work of the Faculty and the self- sacrificing and loyal service of President Tyson and his Administrative Staff that Muhlenberg emerged from the years of war with a reputation of accomplishment second to no other College in America. As the College mustered all its resources to serve the nation and threw its full strength into the battles for peace, 2,076 of its sons left their accustomed places on the campus or in their home communities to wear the uniforms of their country and to join in the fight for freedom. Their heroic deeds and their distinguished service on every battlefront and in all phases of military activity reflected a glory that will forever brighten the pages of their Alma Mater's history. For them the Collegeuorganized a program that was without peer in American collegiate life. Bi-weekly letters from the Alumni Office, uncounted thousands of personal letters from members of the Faculty and Staff and from college friends and classmates, the Alumni Magazine, Christmas gifts, distinctive stationery, calendars, and birthday greetings poured into every corner of the world to keep them close to Muhlenberg. This, then, is the record-a record to which Muhlenberg men point with pride as they enjoy the prestige of their College's heightened stature. It is the record of the never-to-be-forgotten years of war that saw Muhlenberg gain confidence in the basic soundness of its educational creed, in its ability to accomplish what ofttimes seemed impossible tasks, in the strength of its foundations and heritages upon which an even greater College nowis building.

It has made a distinct historical and sentimental Qin the best sensej contribution to the College. Each succeeding annual has successfully followed a tradition which all of us believe should be continued. To some extent, at least, this statement may seem to contradict the implications in the name of the volume, which, if freely translated means "Nonsense!" However, Ciarla has won for itself a place in Muhlenberg life which transcends the humorous and comical, no matter how prominently in the past it has called attention to the lighter side of campus existence. The present volume certainly is performing a service to our entire community which in no sense can be adjudged nonsensical. It is erecting a bridge between that happy Qin prospectlj pre-war era, and the as yet unpredictable POSt-War period to which we have been directing our attention ever since the military victory in Europe assured us of complete triumph of our arms over all our Axis enemies. Those few years were momentous ones for Muhlenberg College and the record of them should be set down. This Ciarla has attempted to do and it is performing a valuable service. It was then that the Navy invaded us and for three years the campus was given over to a routine which was entirely foreign to our normal conception of life in a liberal arts college. But Muhlenberg survived. More than that, she enhanced her reputation and to several thousand men who were sent here from all corners of the land demonstrated why the Navy chose this College as an officer training post. We enjoyed the experience. We believe those who were here in this period, whether in or out of uniform, will never regret their "tour of duty" at this insti- tution. i Ciarla is recording the salient facts of the period and by means of this gap- bridging edition is erecting a connection between the old and the new Muhlenberg which every activity will have to initiate in one form or another. We hope all will be as successful as the editors of this volume have been. Sincerely yours, y . 0' mreefanfp 04011.

Administration lll'll.liNliliRG College is a church college of the liberal arts. An institution of the Lutheran Church, it aims to foster Christian principles in students, as well as uphold the ideas of a liberal education. Authority is vested in a Board of Trustees, consisting of thirty-one members. Of these, eighteen are elected by the Ministerium of Pennsylvania, ten by the Board of Trustees, and three by the Alumni Association ofthe College. The Board meets twice a year. A list of present members will be found on page 221. Executive authority for the actual operation of Muhlenberg is vested in the president. Since l957 Dr. Levering Tyson, Litt.D., l.l..D., has served in this position. lt was due principally to his leadership and ellicient administration that Muhlenberg was so successfully guided through the war years and into the present post-war period. A graduate of Gettysburg, Dr. Tyson has been the author of several books and has received many honorary degrees. Through the years Pres- ident Tyson has been tireless in representing the College at various gatherings and conventions of the United Lutheran Church in America and at educational meetings. Dean Robert C. ltlorn, '00, not only continued his work on the Faculty, teaching Creek, Latin, and mathematics during the war, but also continued as Dean of the College. A scholar in Creek of the New Testament times, Dr. I-lorn is the author of several books and pamphlets and at one time was Acting President of Muhlenberg. Mr. l-larry A. lienfer worked ceaselessly during the past years as Registrar and Dean of lfrcslnuieu. A football great in his college days at Albright, he is known to all the students as "1-laps." lt is he who first interviews prospective students, and 'Dean Benfer is also responsible for West l'lall's ellicient functioning as the freshman dormitory. ln a move to keep pace with the growing student body, Trustees in june, 1946, named Dr. Horn Vice-President of the College, made Perry F. Kendig, formerly of the English Department and during the war in the Navy, Dean of Students, and cre- ated the position of Dean of the Faculty. To this ollice Sherwood R. Mercer, formerly a member of the Connecticut State Department of liducation, was named. 'l'f1lhlcft.' Dean Robert C. llorn, recently elected Vice-president ol the College: rigbl, ltlarry A.

Among the most important functions in the entire staff are the duties of the Treasurer and the business office. During the past years the late Oscar F. Bernheim served as Treasurer of the College. A graduate of Muhlenberg in 1892, he served his Alma Mater for thirty-nine years, and in 1942 the College conferred the degree of Doctor of Laws on him. Dr. Bernheim died February 14, 1946, greatly mourned by the entire College community. , William Fink served as bursar of the College until his death, September 17, 1945. During the war years Mr. John Oberly, of the Allentown Business College, held the position of Business Manager. Mr. Edmund Keiter resumed those duties upon his separation from the Navy, in which he served during the war. The Alumni Secretary is John Wagner, whose difficult task is keeping Muhlen- berg graduates in touch with the College. While Wagner was in the Navy, Mr. Gordon Fister, Public Relations Director of the College, assumed many of these duties. In addition to supplying press releases for newspapers and supervising Muhlenberg publications, Mr. Fister undertook the collection of much material about V-5 and V-12 units that trained at Muhlenberg. This material was especially valu- able in compiling the present Ciarla. Mr. Alvin Hartzell, as Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds, faced many problems during the war in caring for the College plant with limited manpower. As supplies became available, a vast beautification and renovation program on the campus was begun. On Sunday, July 21, 1946, the bronze statue of General John Peter Gabriel Muhlenberg in front of the Library was dedicated by the Brotherhood of the Ministerium of Pennsylvania. War-time scarcity of metal prevented its com- pletion until that time. The Assistant Registrar was Mr. Paul Gebert, '17, He assisted Mr. Benfer in interviewing students and kept in order the Collegeis extensive files. Miss Anne E. Mulcaster was Dietician in the Commons from 1943 until May, 1946. Upon her resignation, Miss Hannah Clayton, who had been in the Army Medical Corps, was named to succeed her. Dr. C. O. Williams of Allentown was in charge of the sick bay and infirmary, located on 23rd Street in the Lambda Chi Alpha house. Members of the College Administrative Staff.

U51 Fazculzjf 'HROUGHOUT the past three years the Faculty at Muhlenberg has varied greatly in size, changing with shifts in civilian enrollment and assignment of Navy units. Some faculty men entered the armed forces. Most departments were enlarged, especially the Departments of Mathematics and Physics. With increasing civilian enrollment after the warls end, the Board of Trustees in June of 1946 authorized the addition of forty-five faculty members to the staff, almost doubling it. On the following pages the Ciarla notes the men who taught during the past three years at Muhlenberg. GERMAN DEPARTMENT During the "war yearsv Dr. Preston A. Barba, head of the Department, and Dr. Harry H. Reichard taught most of the German. Dr. Barba, '06, received his doctor's degree from the University of Pennsylvania and studied extensively at German Universities. Dr. Reichard, an authority on the Pennsylvania Germans, was elected Professor Emeritus in 1945, but will continue to teach a few classes. In March, 1946, Dr. Ralph Wood, who formerly taught at Penn State, joined the department. The German Department was responsible for the continued activity of Der Deutsche Verein in spite of decreased enrollment. DEPARTMENT OF ROMANCE LANGUAGES The Department of Romance Languages is capably headed by Dr. Anthony S. Corbiere. A graduate of Muhlenberg in 1920, he continued his studies at the Uni- versity of Pennsylvania and was awarded his doctor's degree there. Assistant Pro- fessor Charles Seaman taught in the department until he retired. In 1946 he was awarded emeritus ranking. Mr. Charles H. Pershing joined the staff in 1944 to aid in the teaching of French and Spanish. He is a graduate of Occidental College and earned his master's degree at the University of California. The latest addition to the department came in 1946 with the appointment of Alex Corriere, a gradu- ate of Lafayette in 1940, as special instructor.

Civilian students also increased this demand for them. Therefore, the staffs in the departments of the Science Building were augmented and kept very busy during the war and post-war years. In many cases this meant an increased teaching schedule for professors. Typical is the Department of Chemistry. George H. Brandes, Ph.D., a graduate of Cornell, heads this department. Throughout the past years he shared most of his teaching duties in the department with Assistant Professor John C. Keller, who also earned his doctor's degree at Cornell. From time to time Mr. Richmond Myers of the Geology Division assisted them. In 1946 Mr. Ralph L. Herbst, '45, was added to the department as special instructor. PHYSICS The Physics Department showed probably the biggest expansion and turn- over, not only because of the very much increased demands on the staff by enroll- ment in the course, but also because of the importance of trained physicists in the war effort. Called a physicists' war, the Second World War accelerated interest in this subject. Dr. Ira F. Zartman, head of the department, was on leave throughout the period to work with the National Defense Research Council. In his absence many of the teaching duties were carried on by Mr. Robert A. Boyer and Mr. Winfield Keck. Both men joined the Faculty in 1941. Boyer was graduated from Susquehanna University and took his master's degree at Syracuse, Keck from Amherst and the University of Pennsylvania. Mr. Keck resigned to do graduate work in 1946. Con- nected with the Physics Departments work was an extensive course in engineering drawing, housed in the third Hoot of the Library. Men who taught this work and physics included Robert Townsend, R. L. Wolf, K. H. Weber, William D. Miller, john K. Heyl, and William B. Ramsdale.

Dr. james Edgar Swain has taught history at Muhlenberg since 1925. During the past years he was head of the department. Professor Swain was graduated from the University of Indiana, where he also continued graduate work. He received his doctor's degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1926. Dr. Victor L. john- son, a graduate of Temple University, also took his doctor's degree there, in 1939. An assistant professor during the war years, Dr. johnson was made a professor in 1946. Dr. Swain specialized in European history courses, and Dr. johnson presented American and Latin-American history through the recent years. , joining the Faculty in 1942, Mr. Norman B. Wilkinson, '38, served as instructor in the History Department. Other instructors in history, added in 1946, are Mr. Helmut Golatz, a graduate of Temple, and Clayton W. Wotring, Ph.D. Both of them are helping to teach freshmen courses. Economics and business subjects were given by Mr. Karl F. Wittrich, a graduate of Columbia, where he also took his master's degree. Mr. Wittrich came to Muhlenberg in 1941 and has also at times instructed in history. American Govern- ment and allied subjects were presented by Mr. Kenneth Koch, 32, an Allentown lawyer. Dr. Edward Horn presented a course on the Cultural History of Japan. Muhlenberg wasone of the few colleges in America offering such work. Other in- structors in the department were Dr. Richard E. Hibbard and Mr. Paul Gebert. Roland F. Hartman is on leave for military service. He taught business. Muhlenberg's first woman professor, Dr. Bertha Paulssen, offered work in sociology during the war. The vacancy caused by her resignation to teach at the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg was filled with the appointment in 1946 of Dr. Morris Greth. Dr. Greth, a graduate of Muhlenberg in 1922, had been teaching at Albright. Announcement was also made during the war of a new composite course in history, to be begun in September, 1946. Embracing the History of Civilization, American History, and American Government courses, the new course will be re- quired for all freshmen and sophomores. It will last four semesters and be given tive days a week. Department of History. The upper photograph, an old Ciarla print, shows department members at the beginning of the war.

Fritsch, who joined the Muhlenberg Faculty in 1907, headed this department and taught in it for many years. In spite of extensive outside speaking engagements, Dr. Fritsch continued to teach at the College until his retirement in June of 1945. At this time Dr. Fritsch was named Professor Emeritus of English Bible. Dr. john W. Doberstein, the Chaplain of the College, became Professor of Religion in 1943. A graduate of Thiel College and the Mt. Airy Seminary, Dr. Doberstein was awarded his doctor's degree in 1943 by Muhlenberg. In addition to his daily talks in Chapel and his literary work, Dr. Doberstein taught several sections of Freshman Bible. After having taught much of the Bible and philosophy at Muhlenberg for the past three years, Dr. Russell W. Stine was made professor in June, 1946. Dr. Stine, Class of '22, received his doctor's degree at the University of Pennsylvania. The most recent additions to the department are Dr. Edward Horn, a missionary to japan and former head of the Lutheran Seminary in Japan, who has been named professor, and the Rev. Matthew I. Wiencke, appointed instructor in Bible. CLASSICAL LANGUAGES DEPARTMENT Latin and Greek at Muhlenberg were taught by Dean Robert C. Horn, Dr. Robert Fritsch, and Dr. Edward Fluck. Dr. Horn headed the department. He and Dr. Fritsch taught Greek, while Dr. Fluck, '30, who did his graduate work at Johns Hopkins and was a fellow at the American School of Classical Studies in Athens, Greece, took charge of most of the instruction in Latin. Because of war-time de- emphasis on Classical subjects, all three men were frequently called upon to help out in other departments. Many times advanced classes in the two languages dwindled to two and three students. Top, Department of Religion and Philosophy. From left, Dr. Edward T. Horn, Dr. Russell W. Stine, Dr. John XV.

Muhlenberg's particularly fine work in premedical and predental courses account for many of the students who registered for work under this department. Surprisingly, photography proved to be one of the best-liked elective courses. At the head of the Department of Biology is Dr. John V. Shankweiler. Dr. Shankweiler was graduated with a bachelor of science degree from Muhlenberg in 1921. He continued graduate work in Cornell, receiving his M.A. in 1927 and his Ph.D. in 1931. Associated with Muhlenberg since 1921, Dr. Shankweiler taught many courses in biology and photography during the war years. So heavy was his schedule that he was unable to act as photographic adviser for the Ciarla, a task he has for a long time done. Among the other men who taught in the department during the war are Dr. Donald Shay and Dr. john E. Trainer. Dr. Shay is at present teaching at the Uni- versity of Maryland. Dr. Trainer was on leave of absence to do graduate work at Cornell University. He was graduated from Muhlenberg in 1935. Two additional men were added to the Department of Biology recently. William A. Green was named instructor on that subject. He is a graduate of Moravian College and continued his studies at Lehigh University. He joined the staff in 1946. Robert E. Behler, '44, was appointed special laboratory instructor in 1945. Mr. Behler took many of the pictures for this issue of the Ciarla. Biology Department included, upper left, Mr. William A.

Professor Deck, an editor of the Ciarla when he was at Muhlenberg, has been associated with the College since his gradu- ation. Aiding him was Assistant Professor Truman Koehler. Following his gradu- ation from Muhlenberg in 1924, Mr. Koehler took his master's degree at the Uni- versity of Pennsylvania. The series of instructors during the ebb and flow of the Navy training program has been innumerable. Harold D. Reese was appointed special instructor in 1946. He is a graduate of Penn State. From time to time teaching in the department was done by Dean Robert C. Horn and Miss Mary Funk, of the Library staff. Other instructors in the past three years have included Mr. Enser, Mr. Gruber, Mr. Howell, Mr. Kunkel, Mr. Nelson, Mr. Herbert Reichard, and Mr. Roy E. Smeltzer. ENGLISH DEPARTMENT Dr. John D. M. Brown, '06, has been connected with the Department of English for the past thirty-four years and was department head during the war years. Dr. Brown received his Litt.D. degree from Wittenberg College in 1922 and is also a graduate of Mt. Airy Seminary. Although conditions prevented presentation of many elective courses, Dr. Brown's unfailing interest kept oratory alive at Muhlenberg all through the period. Assistant Professor Ephraim Everitt, who sponsored debating activities, was granted a leave of absence in 1946 to complete work toward his doctor's degree. Throughout the period Kingsbury M. Badger and Andrew H. Erskine were instruc- tors in the department. Mr. Erskine was active as director of Mask and Dagger plays and served as faculty adviser for the Weekljf. Mr. Badger recently resigned to do graduate work. E. Philip Bollier, '43, was added in 1946 as a special instructor in English. Dr. Edward Fluck frequently assisted in the department. Above, the Mathematics Department: from left, Mr. Thorman Nelson, Assistant Professor Truman Koehler, Professor Luther Deck, and Mr. Charles Gruber. Members of the English Department are, from left, Mr. Andrew Erskine, Dr. john D. M. Brown, head of the depart- ment, Mr. Kingsbury M. Badger, and Assistant Professor Ephraim Everitt. 11571 MUSIC AND ART Dr. Harold K. Marks continued to direct musical activities at Muhlenberg during the war semesters. A graduate of Muhlenberg in 1907, he has been connected with the College Faculty since 1913. In view of his long years of service his Alma Mater bestowed the degree of Doctor of Music on him in 1930. For many years Dr. Marks served as organist in local churches. During the last three years he continued at the Skinner Memorial Organ in the College Chapel. Dr. Marks was responsible for the musical portion of chapel services and in addition he frequently arranged special concerts. The Chapel Choir, which Dr. Marks has directed for some years, continued throughout the war years, due mainly to his persistent efforts. The group, though limited in members and hampered much of the time by transportation restrictions, continued to present sacred concerts throughout Eastern Pennsylvania. Band and orchestra activities collapsed almost completely. Most of the former musicians were in the service, but during the 1944 football season a band was formed under the leadership of Mr. Anthony S. jagnesak, Lebanon Valley College, '36. Mr. Jagnesalc also helped train various Navy bands on the campus. Professor George Rickey, who joined the Faculty in 1941 as Professor of Art, was in service during the past semesters. Mr. Rickey is a graduate of Oxford and continued his studies there and in Paris. He returned to Muhlenberg in july, 1946. THE LIBRARY STAFF Thea excellent library facilities at Muhlenberg were directed during the past three years by Mr. john Davidson, who completed his training at Syracuse Uni- v.ersity.,He has been at Muhlenberg since 1940. Miss Mary A. Funk, who at times taught mathematics, was assistant librarian. Library assistants included Miss Carolyn Butz and Miss Arlene E. Desch. Dr. Harold K. Marks, Professor of Music, sits at the console of the Chapel organ, while Mr. Anthony jagnesak watches the score. He is band director.

A branch of the Chemistry Department, the study of Geology increased in importance during the war years, with military demands especially emphasizing the need for new courses. Mr. Richmond E. Myers has been in- structor in Geology at Muhlenberg since 1938. Mr. Myers was graduated from Moravian College in 1925 and took his master's degree at the University of Penn- sylvania. He is the author of many articles and of one of the books in the Rivers of America series. Mr. Myers also taught some sections in Chemistry during the war years. In 1946 Mr. S. Francis Thoumsin was added to the staff as instructor in Geology. He is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania. EDUCATION AND PSYCHOLOGY Drj Elmer Kilmer handled much of the work in this department during the past three years. After being graduated from Ursinus College and taking his Master's work at Columbia University, Dr. Kilmer received his doctor's degree from New York University. Until his retirement, Dr. Isaac Miles Wright taught Education. Also a graduate of New York University, he was named Professor Emeritus in 1945, after having served twenty-eight years at Muhlenberg. Dr. Wright was for many years head of the Extension School. Dr. Carl Wright Boyer, Professor of Education since 1926, was on leave for service in the armed forces during the period from 1943 to 1946. He returned to his teaching duties in july of 1946. Like the other members of the department, Dr. Boyer received his doctorate from New York University. Mr. Richmond E. Myers was in charge of the Division of Geology. S. Francis Thoumsin, right, in the upper picture watches a grinding operation with Mr. Myers. Dr. Isaac Miles Wright, left, became Professor Emeritus of Education in 1946. With him, at rigbi in the lower picture, is Dr. Elmer Kilmer of the Department of Education and Psychology. E411 DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICAL EDUCATION OLLOWING the almost century-old tradition at Muhlenberg of service through education, the College in December, 1945, initiated sweeping changes in the physical education department. Coupled with the building of the new Field House, additions to the Faculty and curricula will enable Muhlenberg to certify students to teach physical education. During the war years Mr. Gurney F. Afilerbach served as Assistant to the President in Charge of Athletics. In this post he was responsible for the operation of Muhlenberg's expanding athletic program. Mr. William S. Ritter was in charge of civilian physical education activity, while various specialists attached to the units conducted the physical training sections which were so characteristic of the V-5 and V-12 programs. Alvin "Doggie" julian coached major sports at Muhlenberg until March, 1945 when he became head basketball coach at Holy Cross. "Scotty" Renwick, long-time Cardinal and Gray trainer, continued through the 1945-46 period to be a familiar figure at all college athletic events. For seasonal sports, part-time coaches were engaged, including Morgan Shaffer, Charles Altemose, Larry Rosatti, Lee Coker, Horace Heist, and Dr. john V. Shankweiler of the Faculty. Late in 1945 Trustees voted to establish a Department of Physical Education to provide professional training meeting the rigid requirements of the State of Pennsylvania in this important speciality. Major Floyd Schwartzwalder, named football coach for 1946, was appointed acting head of the department with full faculty rank. A native of West Virginia and a former coach at McKinley High School, Canton, Ohio, he served overseas as a paratrooper. Two other new men, both qualified to teach in the new Department and also ex-coaches at McKinley High, were added to the Faculty to give Muhlenberg a complete coaching staff. Frank Lough, a lieutenant commander in the Coast Guard during the war, is baseball coach, and Clyde Barker, air force veteran, is to be basketball coach. Mr. Ritter received a sabbatical leave in the Spring of 1946 to take graduate work in physical education. All four men will teach physical education classes. Under the new set-up, Mr. Afflerbach will be Director of the Division of Inter-collegiate Athletics. Dr. C. O. Williams, acting College Physician during the war years, conducted the infxrmary located in the Lambda Chi Alpha House. The new arrangement calls for a regular college physician and physical examinations for all students. Thus all athletic and physical educational activities are organized so as to give Muhlenberg men increased and better training in a new field. At the top of the page is Mr. Gurney F. Afflerbach, Director of Inter-collegiate Athletics. In the middle panel are, left, Mr. William Ritter and, right, Mr. Clyde E. Barker. Lower panel, left, Mr. Floyd B.

They were Dr. Robert R. Fritsch, who served in the Department of English Bible for thirty-eight years, Dr. Isaac Miles Wright, Professor of Education on the Faculty for twenty-eight years, Dr. Harry Hess Reichard, who taught German for twenty years, and Walter L. Seaman, Assistant Professor of Romance Languages for nineteen years. The first three were made Professor Emeritus, while Mr. Seaman was appointed Assistant Professor Emeritus. Dr. Fritsch, '00, did graduate work at Muhlenberg and Illinois Wesleyan Uni- versity. He received his doctor's degree from Wittenberg College. Throughout his life he has traveled abroad extensively, and lecture tours have taken him through many parts of the United States and Canada. In addition to serving as pastor at St. joseph's Lutheran Church, Allentown for seventeen years, Dr. Fritsch taught Greek and English Bible at Muhlenberg since 1907. Dr. Wright, who was graduated from Alfred College in 1904, received his doctor's degree at New York University in 1916 and joined the Muhlenberg Faculty the following year. During the years he taught courses in education and psychology. Moreover, Dr. Wright headed the Extension School, which operated at nights, on Saturdays, and in the summer. Through the years he counselled several thousand students who completed their education in the extension classes. President of the Allentown School Board for seven of the sixteen years he served on it, Dr. Wright was also national president of Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity at one time. A graduate of Lafayette who completed his graduate work at Johns Hopkins, Dr. Reichard joined the Muhlenberg Faculty in 1925. He taught in the German Department and by his many publications became recognized as an authority on Pennsylvania Dutch lore. Ever since he wrote his paper for his doctorate on this subject, Dr. Reichard has continued to publish and present on the radio such ma- terial. In addition, he has traveled extensively in Europe. Dr. Reichard is continuing to teach some German classes. Assistant Professor Seaman received degrees from Western Reserve University and Columbia. Before coming to Muhlenberg he taught at Hobart College. Like Doctors Reichard and Fritsch, he has traveled in France, Spain, and Cuba. 41441 I 72 M emoriczm OSCAR F. BERNHEIM By Gordon B. Fister O appraise the life of Oscar F. Bernheim and his contributions to the develop- ment of the College he loved and served for more than fifty of his seventy-seven years would encompass a review of the history of Muhlenberg from his days as a student on the old campus at Fourth and Walnut Streets, long before the turn of the Century, until his death on February 14, 1946. More than the Treasurer of the College, Dr. Bernheim was as much a part of the tradition of Muhlenberg as the clock-tower of the Ad Building, a link between the College he knew as a boy and the institution in which his life was centered for nearly forty years as a member of its staff. He watched-and not from the sidelines- as the boundaries of the campus were expanded and its physical facilities developed, as the student body grew from 100 to more than 700 men, as the endowment funds increased live-fold. To every step of each expansionmove he gave his faithful interest and devoted service. His gentle spirit, his unfailing courtesy, his devotion to the best interests of all just causes, his concern for the welfare of all Muhlenberg projects continue as an inspiration to generations of Muhlenberg men who knew him and who counted him as their friend. wi A Tribute CHARLOTTE W. R. HAAS By Dean Robert C. Hom IN 1904 Dr. John A. W. Haas and his wife Charlotte W. R. Haas came to Allen- town from New York. It was then that his presidency of the College began, which continued for thirty-two years. He died soon after his retirement in 19365 Mrs. Haas continued to live in Allentown until her death on Sunday, November 25, 1945. Mrs. Haas' maiden name was Boschen and she belonged to a family of New York Lutherans who loved the church and took an active part in its program. This love of the church was one of the characteristics of Mrs. Haas all her life. 'Since coming to Allentown she was a faithful member of St. john's Lutheran congrega- tion. This love of hers was shown in many ways. Mrs. Haas was devoted to the College and in a quiet, unassuming way mani- fested it on many occasions. Among these activities was her work in helping to organize the Woman's Auxiliary of the College, and during thirty years of its service she was its Honorary Vice President. Mrs. Haas' devotion to her husband was as marked as her love of church and College. She cared for him in sickness and in health. His nervous activity and excit- ability are well knowng his wife was a counterpoise and steadying influence. She took good care of him, encouraged him in times of depression and despondency, moderated his exuberance of spirit, and supported him inmhis plans and undertakings with sympathy and appreciation. She herself was rather quiet and reserved, she did not in any way put herself forward, but her influence on her husband was great and beneficial. Dr. Haas' ability to carry on his arduous work was made possible in large degree by a loyal, sympathetic, and loving wife. H61 liz Zllenaawnkane WILLIAM PINK Bursar of the College, 1938-1945 By james Edgar Swain, Head of Social Sciences Department R. FINK was a highly respected and very popular figure on the Muhlenberg Campus. His quiet and unassuming manner enabled him to do a very difiicult and a very trying job without friction and without confusion. Never was there a time when he refused a request for a favor, and never was there a demand too great or too trivial for his undivided attention. Mr. Fink was a veteran of World War I and became a prominent member of the Allentown chapter of the American Legion. Loyalty to his country was practiced with the same unassuming devotion which characterized his family, his social, and his professional activities. His cheerfulness and his optimism were ,an inspiration to his friends and associates. Muhlenberg College was fortunate in securing his services in June, 1933. He was made Bursar in July, 1938, a position which he held when his health failed. He died September 17, 1945 leaving a gap in the organization which he served and a sad place in the hearts of his friends. t4vJ X x- A. , ... W Chapter III CLASSES HE story of the Junior and Senior, Freshman and Sophomore Classes at Muhlen- berg College is not the simple affair it once was, for from 1943 until 1946 classes, as such, simply ceased to exist. Again, the chaotic conditions brought on by the war were responsible. To begin with, many classes were broken up by the entry of members into the armed forces. The number of upper classmen on the campus shrank dangerously. However, in spite of humorous freshmen references to the institution of "Sophomore regula- tions", the group never totally vanished from the halls of Muhlenberg. Fortunate and rare, though, were the men who could remain in school long enough to com- plete work for a degree. Class reunions, among those who had entered the service, became common things over-seas. Frequently, classmates met in London, or Hawaii, or India. With the arrival of the Naval training programs on the Muhlenberg campus, freshman regulations were removed. The presence of uniformed trainees on the campus thus also helped to break down class organizations. The accelerated program administered a final blow to the traditional class idea. With three semesters in a year, education became a hurried process, allowing little time -for extra activities. Furthermore, the speed with which students advanced through College rendered the election of class officers and other details or formal organization almost impossible. Typical of these times is the story of one student, apocryphal perhaps, but nevertheless interesting, who entered with the Class of '45, He began to accelerate and might have been graduated in 1944, but he entered the service, returned to finish his college work by September, 1946. Since there were to be no commencement exercises until the next spring, he had nothing to do but wait until 1947 for his diploma. , At any rate, Muhlenberg, like most schools, had little in the way of organized classes from 1943 to 1946. On the next thirteen pages the Ciarla presents portraits of Seniors and juniors. Class designations have in some cases already been made inaccurate by the accelerated program. On the following pages are also reports on each of the graduation exercises that followed war-time semesters. Professor Luther Deck leading the academic procession at graduation. E491 ANTHONY L.

It was in the spirit of the most belligerent member of that family that the College heeded America's call to service while many still dreamed that freedom and peace had been assured by the Treaty of Versailles, that two oceans were the fire- breaks that would make the American continent a plateau untouchable by the flames of war, that Munich was just another German city in which a half dozen men met to discuss the merits and demerits for which the city is famous. Across the years, Muhlenberg early heard its courageous forebear, Major General John Peter Gabriel Muhlenberg, as on a memorable january Sunday in 1776 he told his Woodstock, Virginia congregation, "There is a time for all thingsg a time to preach and a time to pray. But there is also a time to fight and that time has now come!" Muhlenberg's Faculty and Students and Administrators saw General Muhlen- berg as, in another war for freedom, he laid aside his clerical gown, stepped from the safety and security of his pulpit, and led his Eighth Virginia Regiment into the battles that for him ended only with the complete capitulation of the enemy at Yorktown. j If any doubted or feared, they could also return to the life of the fighting parson of the Revolution for their answer to those who harped or criticized: "I am a clergyman it is true," said the man who became one of Washington's confidants. 'iBut I am a member of society as well as the poorest layman and my liberty is as dear to me as to any man. Shall I then sit still and enjoy myself at home when the best blood of the continent is spilling? Do you think that if America is conquered I should be safe? Far from it! And would you not sooner light like a man than die like a dog?" Members of Muhlenberg's training units before the statue of General john Peter Gabriel Muhlenberg. 11771 Eazrhf Units at Muhlenberg ITH that challenge and in that spirit, Muhlenberg College went to war long before the Navy Department, in the early winter of 1943, selected it as one of the colleges whose cooperation it sought in the training of prospective officer candidates for the expanding Fleet, for the Marine Corps, and for the Coast Guard. When that nod came, Muhlenberg was operating a Unit of the Civil Aero- nautics Administration's War Training School, giving basic training to prospective Navy pilots. It already had enrolled more than half of its civilian students in the Navy V-1 and V-7 programs, in the Marine Corps Reserve, and in the Army En- listed Reserves. Facilities of Muhlenberg College had been inspected and approved for several military training programs when Commander Scott G. Lamb, accompanied by other Naval Officers, made a detailed and thorough inspection of the College on February 25, 1943 to determine its usefulness as a station for the Navy V-5 and V-12 Training Programs. The inspection was completed in a single day, and Muhlen- berg had its first real indication of the job the Navy had selected it to do. Commander Lamb's report approved Muhlenberg for training and housing a maximum of 525 uniformed men. President Tyson indicated to the Navy that the College could do the best job with a unit of between 450 and 500 men, arguing that Muhlenberg could provide more satisfactory housing, could continue to offer its facilities to civilian students able to at least begin their college training and ultimately feed many of them into the Navyis Officer Training Program, and could provide instruction for Navy and civilian students alike with a Faculty Whose cap- abilities had been tested and were well-known. On March 12, 1945 the Bureau of Naval Personnel notified Muhlenberg that the College had been selected to train 460 prospective ofiicer candidates, 400 of them under the basic curriculum and 60 as premedical students. This signal set into operation the plans that had been formulated and carefully studied for several months by Faculty, Trustees, and Administration. Except for messing accommodations, a few additional sanitary facilities in the College dormitories, and an expanded sick bay, the plant was entirely adequate for the complement of Navy men expected to come aboard. The College had for several years been developing plans for enlarging the Commons that was to be used as a Navy mess hall and now the Board of Trustees immediately moved to expand the building. Contracts for the additional work were awarded by the College on April 14, 1943 and work was started within a few days. Through the assistance of the Navy, the necessary priorities were obtained and the work completed by the time the Unit was fed for the first time, on July 1, 1943.

With all campus dormi- tories taxed by the housing of uniformed men, the facilities of the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity house, adjacent to the campus, were leased and equipped as a complete dispensary and infirmary with beds for 22 patients and all necessary exam- ining, treatment, and service rooms. The renovation of the building and its original equipment was planned and carried out under the supervision of the College physician, Dr. Thomas H. Weaber, Jr., M.D. The V-5 and V-12 curriculum, carefully planned by the Training Division of the Navy and the characteristically strong and balanced academic program that was Muhlenberg's traditional academic fare resulted in a combination that required very few changes in the normal curriculum of the College except for the addition of Naval Organization and an expanded Engineering Drawingicourse that, at the outset of the program, were required of all the trainees. The cognate result was that practically no Faculty changes were required except the addition of several special instructors to meet the demands of increased enrollment in certain fields, particularly mathematics, physics, and social studies. The Navy provided the in- structors for the Naval Organization courses and the College readily found capable Allentown architects to teach the Engineering Drawing courses. Preparations for the arrival of the V-12 unit were complicated by the fact that many of the changes had to be made while the College was completing a year of civilian operation. The student body, as that semester neared its close, numbered approximately 400 men. In addition, the College was providing housing, messing, and ground instruction for 100 prospective Navy pilots taking their pre-flight courses in the War Training School of the Civil Aeronautics Administration. Civilian students left the campus just before the commencement on june 4, 1945 and by the middle of june, the aviation cadets were transferred to facilities Muhlenberg had leased at Moravian College and Theological Seminary in Bethlehem.

The Commanding Officer of the Unit was Commander Henry Polk Lowenstein, jr., D-V QGQ USNR, assigned to the Muhlenberg station from the United States Naval Reserve Midshipman's School at Northwestern University where he had been Executive Officer. Lieutenant Frederick Jones, D-V QSQ USNR, was Executive Officer and Lieutenant Commander Roland Heller, MC-V QSJ USNR, the Medical Officer. With each trainee the College had a double relationship: he was, first, an officer candidate for the Navy, and, second, a student of the College. Muhlenberg recognized him as both and early determined that each man assigned to its campus was to have every opportunity the College, through its long history, had afforded civilian stu- dents-the men it had trained for leadership and who became leaders in their pro- fessions and in the business world. Campus life speedily took on a new aspect. The grounds were restricted. Security watches were set at night and messenger watches were established during the day. Bugle calls awakened not only the campus but the surrounding residential neigh- borhood at 0600 and again sounded over the area at 2200. Navy jargon became a part of the vocabulary of even the Dean of the College. Men marched, rather than sauntered to mess and classes. They spoke of decks for floors, bulkheads instead of walls, ladders for stairs, and many other typical Navy phrases. The Navy routine was catching on, and even unto the last unit aboard it still continued to be a novelty. MEN OF THE UNIT Q Most of the 455 men of the new unit, including 253 Bluejackets and 200 Marines, were either from colleges where they had entered the V-1 program or directly from high schools. Forty-nine colleges and nearly as many high schools were represented in the group. Eighty-three had been civilian students at Muhlenberg the previous term, while others had just returned from the fleet. The trainees comprising the first Unit represented fifteen states, the majority being from Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, and Maryland. Of these men, 129 were found to lack sufiicient preparation to carry the load of the academic program, and ,so refresher courses were added and made a part of the standard procedure, allowing these men to con- tinue with their studies, with the result that nearly 100 .of these men were saved that otherwise might have been dropped from the program.

Muhlenberg made certain that the latter group either had satisfactorily completed the courses required by the Navy or that they were registered for them. The re- mainder of their academic curriculum included both courses in the major fields of study in which they were interested as civilians, and courses designed to meet mini- mum academic requirements for successful accomplishment in the Naval Reserve Midshipmen's Schools, Supply Corps Schools, Medical Schools, Dental Schools, Theological Seminaries, and Officer Candidate Schools of the Marine Corps. The progress of a regular student through the fully prescribed curricula fol- lowed the clear cutpattern of the program. Coming into the V-12 unit as a fresh- man, the military student followed one of two groups of freshman courses: that for premedical students or that for engineering and basic students. Premedical students whose work was satisfactory continued their work for five terms. Other freshmen were screened during their second term, they were assigned, in numbers determined by the needs of the Navy, to upper level specialties after a certain quota of volunteers had been transferred to Class V-5 for further training in aviation. Deck candidates were given two additional terms of training, N.R.O.T.C. men, live additional terms, engineering candidates for general service, four additional terms, engineering specialists, physics majors, and aerology specialists, six additional terms, and Marine Corps line officer candidates, four additional terms. Students selected for training as chaplains were permitted to take a special series of courses as under raduates and then to com lete their work for rofessional 8 P. . theological degrees in seminaries of their own denominations. From the outset of this program Muhlenberg sought to offer to the men in the training unit the advantages of a small college with personal contact with members of its Faculty and Staff. Navy students were encouraged to consult with the Dean and Registrar, and each member of the Faculty was made a personal adviser, doing additional duty in helping men who had difficulty in their respective subjects.

Upon completion of their training on the Muhlenberg campus, 109 men were assigned to the United States Naval Reserve Midshipman's Schools, 82 went to Pre-Mid- shipman,s Schools, 168 went to Marine bases for the special training required before their assignment to Marine Corps Officer Candidate Schools, 46 prepared for pro- fessional schools, including medical, dental, and theological schools, 56 went to specialized Naval Training Schools, including supply, engineering, and N.R.O.T.C.g 133 were transferred into the V-5 program and assigned to air bases for training as pilots, 45 were transferred to other V-12 units, particularly for engineering training. When the Navy unit was withdrawn june 24, 1945 to make way for the new Navy Academic Refresher Unit under the V-5 training program, 106 men who were scheduled for one term or more of training under the V-12 program were transferred to other V-12 colleges. PHYSICAL FITNESS PROGRAM Except for a swimming pool, Muhlenberg had adequate facilities for the Navyls physical fitness program on its own campus and complied completely with the re- quirements calling for nine and one-half hours of physical training during the first term and a half hour less during the second term. Physical fitness classes and swim- ming classes, held at the Jewish Community Center Pool, were scheduled through- out each day and were in addition to the hour of military drill provided each week, the daily musters, and the regular morning period of calisthenics. The obstacle course that was developed on the campus to meet the needs of the V-5 unit that preceded the V-12 program was rebuilt and expanded and that equipment was used in connection with the drill fields, the game fields, and the two small gymnasiums. In the swimming program, Muhlenberg was the first unit to provide an under- water obstacle course with devices specially designed to simulate conditions men would meet in emergencies at sea. EXTRA-C URRI C U LAR ACTIVITIES Both in its original concept of the V-12 training program and in its directives, the Navy made it clear that it wanted the men assigned to the V-12 program to participate in extra-curricular activities and to have other normal college advantages to give them what Rear Admiral Jacobs called "the best undergraduate education colleges can offer." The Student Body amended its constitution to provide for the election of Navy men to the Student Council to be elected by their own men.

With civilian students they planned and directed College dances and other social activities. The nucleus of all athletic teams consisted of men who had been assigned to the campus. When the lirst call for football candidates was issued on August 3, 1943, seventy-five men reported to the coaching staff. Physical fitness personnel of the Navy assisted the regular coaching staff of the College in the various extra-curricular sports program that were considered a part of a broad program of physical fitness. While the football, baseball, track, tennis, wrestling, and soccer teams that represented Muhlenberg enjoyed fair success during the two years, the basketball teams of both the 1943-44 and 1944-45 seasons were rated with the Nation's top college teams and in both years played in the first round of the National Invitation Basketball Tournament in Madison Square Garden. A THE COMMUNITY AND THE NAVY In other ways Muhlenberg sought to provide recreational opportunities for the military men, who for the greater part ofntheir stay on the campus, were limited to the bounds of the station from Sunday evening to Saturday noon. New recreation halls were equipped to supplement those that had been adequate for a smaller civilian resident student body. Library hours were changed to correspond with the needs of the Naval students, and the men were invited to use not only the spacious reading rooms, but also the browsing and music rooms. The Lehigh County USO cooperated in providing recreational opportunities for the men on the station and, during the winter of 1944, weekly programs were held in the College Auditorium with band concerts, variety shows, and an occasional speaker. Allentown extended its hospitality in many ways. In July 1943, a few weeks after the unit had been established on the campus, the Allentown Kiwanis Club and the Allentown Woman's Club cooperated in sponsoring a Stage Door Canteen to which all members of the unit were invited and at which time they met women of the community. Monthly, and at times more frequently, the Woman's Club enter- tained the men and their guests at informal canteen parties in their spacious club house. Other groups from time to time extended cordial invitations to the men on the station, and the majority of them quickly found themselves at home in Allentown. On January 27, 1944 the Coca Cola Company brought its Spotlight Band broad- cast to Allentown to salute the men of the Muhlenberg Navy V-12 unit over a coast- to-coast broadcast with Vaughn Monroe's Orchestra. Everyone was as coopera- tive and hospitable to the unit as possible, and relationships between the officers and enlisted men on the station with the residents of the community were more than just "friendly and cordial".

The V-12 program emphasized sciences because of their important place in modern life. i391 THE NAVY STAFF The progress of the Navy V-12 unit on the Muhlenberg campus was made possible by the close cooperation that existed on every hand between the College authorities and the Navy personnel responsible for the maintenance of Navy regu- lations. It should be emphasized that both sought to follow all directions and to interpret them in the spirit in which the V-12 program was conceived and developed -the best education a college can provide to prepare men who in every respect would be qualified to serve as officers in the United States Navy, the Marine Corps, and the Coast Guard. To Commander Henry Polk Lowenstein, Jr., Commanding Officer from June 1, 1943 to December 17, 1943, fell the responsibility of establishing a new program over a course that both the College and the Navy helped to chart. Commissioned men on his staff included Lieutenant Frederick L. Jones, D-V QSQ USNR, Executive Officer, First Lieutenant Ralph Dawson, USMCR, Officer-in-charge of the Marine Detachment, Lieutenant Commander Roland Heller, MC-V CS, USNR, Medical Officer, and Lieutenant C Stanley Kuffel D-V QSQ USNR, Physical Fitness Officer. Lieutenant jones was succeeded as Executive Officer by Lieutenant Lloyd P. Jordan D-V QSJ USNR, who had been Officer-in-charge of the V-12 unit at Iowa State University. Commander Lowenstein remained in command until he was suc- ceeded on December 17, 1943 by Lieutenant Commander Frederick L. Douthit, D-V QGD USNR, who was assigned to the unit from Princeton University where he had been Executive Officer. Lieutenant Dawson was succeeded as Officer-in-charge of the Marine Detach- ment by Captain Michael N. Scelsi, USMCR, a veteran of the Guadalcanal campaign. He assumed his duties on October 18, 1945 and served until the Marine Unit left the campus, transferring on November 5, 1944. Lieutenant Wilmer D. Greulich D-V QSJ USNR, succeeded Lieutenant Jordan as Executive Officer on March 10, 1944, coming to the station from the V-12 unit at Bloomsburg State Teachers College, where he served as Commanding Officer. On January 19, 1945 when Commander Douthit was transferred to the Fifth Naval District as Director of Training, Lieu- tenant Greulich became the Commanding Officer of the Unit. Lieutenant f gj Joseph Puvogel QSQ USNR, came aboard as Executive Officer on February 13, 1945, after a tour of duty in the Mediterranean Theatre. Lieutenant Roderick H. Light QSJ USNR, succeeded Lieutenant Greulich as Commanding Officer on May 15, 1945. In the Medical Department, Lieutenant Q j gj E. V. Bigelow, MC USN succeeded Lieutenant Commander Heller on january 25, 1944 and served until he was replaced by Lieutenant Elliot Freeman MC-V QSQ USNR, on April 25, 1944. Lieutenant Freeman was detached on June 5, 1945. Lieutenant Kuffel served as physical fitness officer until June 23, 1944 when he was assigned to a similar post at Villanova College.

"In the piping times of peace," President Tyson said to each new unit to come aboard, "I interpreted the aim of this College to be the provision not of monastic seclusion for a group of intellectual prodigies, nor a well-equipped country club for irresponsible playboys, but rather a congenial environment in which ap- proximately 600 young men can live together in comfortable simplicity as they train for useful adult occupations. This aim persists in spite of the present emergency. "This war is serious business for those who want to win it. On this ship there has been assembled a group who are going to work together to train themselves so that they can help to eliminate that particular brand of tyranny, brutality, and paganism our enemies are trying to inflict on people all over the globe. Besides, when a decisive military victory over the Axis countries is assured, we also want to be a part of the influences which will establish for humanity a perpetual and work- able system of free government and liberty. "This is a timely, intelligent, and practical aim. I hope you will subscribe to it and adopt it as your own. I am confident that if you will do so, you will have a happy, comfortable, and useful voyage on this trip. I can promise you that the Navy and the College will do everything to bring about this result." It was a pledge President Tyson kept uppermost in mind as he continued to guide and direct the progress and work of the Unit and relate it to the normal civilian program and requirements of the College. His was an around-the-clock and around-the-year job that required great personal sacrifices and that knew no leaves and 48-hour liberties. Credit also belongs to Dean Robert C. Horn and Registrar Harry A. Benfer for their work in organizing the academic program and to Registrar Benfer particularly for his tireless efforts in counseling and assisting military students in both personal and academic matters. On the academic side more than a word is also due the De- partment heads and the other members of the Faculty for their patience, their careful and thorough and conscientious teaching, their insistence that assignments be faithfully performed, and their willingness to be of personal service to the men they were helping prepare for their heavy responsibilities of leading other men in a war to Victory.

But the services of John H. Wagner, Alumni Secretary, in the months that preceded the establishment of the program and in the first half-year of its operation deserve Commendation. Working with the President, he supervised the transition of the physical plant from its peace- time functions to serve in its war-time role and organized the campus staff and the auxiliary and administrative personnel required for the expanded job that had been assigned to the College. And credit belongs also to Gurney F. Afflerbach, who as assistant to the President, carried out many assignmentsg to Dr. John W. Dober- stein, College Chaplain, who led the College's regular Chapel services and advised and counselled with many men on the problems that could be pointed out and cleared only by the chaplain, to Miss Anne Mulcaster, the dietition whose careful planning and attention to detail gave the messing arrangements their high standing, and to all other members of the College Staff. The Public Relations Office of the College, under the energetic management of Gordon B. Fister, from the start indicated commendable enthusiasm for every aspect of the program. This oflice not only managed all publicity with the press, but issued descriptive literature that was a distinct credit to the station. Follow-ups with the men after they moved into other assignments were conducted regularly and in every sense, the men were treated as Muhlenberg men and alumni. Valuable ideas for the comfort of the entire Naval Personnel emanated regularly from this branch of the College's administration. Many hours of the V-12 program were spent in physical exercise and training. At pop, trainees race along part of the obstacle course. Calisthenics were also stressed, as in the lower picture. 11941 xx xxx lmnmaxm,1amun-mmLmx1uuJmrrnL.m.A-.agx-3-..iLh1QnLgmzi iMmm1:z.,.k-1.nqiwnimn1LQ1- 5..4-Q.,-2,5 .

' 42122: 4 SUCCESS OF THE PROGRAM Throughout the operation of the Unit, the College held securely in mind the definition of a Naval Officer given to the Naval Committee of Congress in 1775 by John Paul Jones and cited by Commander Lowenstein as the first Naval trainees came aboard: "It is by no means enough that an officer of the Navy should be a capable mariner. He must be that, of course, but also a great deal more. He must be as well a gentleman of liberal education, refined manners, punctilious courtesy, and the nicest sense of personal honor." In his opening statement to the first group of trainees, Commarlderlowenstein emphasized that the V-12 College Training Program would stress the educational values, that the physical program would be organized so that the body and mind could develop together, that there would be ample opportunity for religious de- velopment in the church of the individual's choice, and that extra-curricular ac- tivities and the full advantages of college life would be open to them. "The government is not making this large expenditure from charitable mo- tives,', Lieutenant Commander Douthit said later as he emphasized the keynote of the Whole ro ram. "It is assurin itself of a source of officer material for the P 8 8 Navy, the Marine Corps, and the Coast Guard. You have voluntarily entered this ro ram. Your art of the contract is to carr out our assi nment cheerfull and P 8 P Y Y S Y willin l . While stationed here ou are as much on dut as if ou were a member 8 Y Y Y Y of a gun crew at general quarters and as such will be expected to do your part." That Muhlenberg felt the men assigned to it had done their part in meeting these objectives was indicated when, in December, 1943, the College presented the men of the Unit with Regimental Colors in appreciation of the record they had achieved in fulfilling their assignments. It again recognized what succeeding units had done when the colors were decorated with an achievement streamer in Decem- ber 1944. Naturally, a Navy program includes swimming, life saving, and underwater escapes. The upper picture shows a diving start for a race. The class practices artificial respiration below. The swimming training of the local V-12 program was conducted in the pool of the jewish Community Center. T971 Navy Academic Rqfresber Units HE Navy Academic Refresher Program, sometimes referred to as the V-5 Pro- gram, was initiated in July 1944 to prepare selected men from the fleet and other parts of the service, for flight training. This included a quota of Marines and Coast Guardsmen, who along with the Naval trainees were to begin their program at a Pre-flight School. With the realization that these men had been away from school for a considerable length of time and that their competitors in the field of flight training were largely younger men recently completing several terms of college in the V-12 program, the Navy originated the idea of the Navy Academic Refresher Unit to bring the educational level of these men equal to that of the other men undergoing flight training. Under the original provisions of this program the men were to receive instructions in mathematics, English, physics, and history, as well as physical training, military drill, and Naval Organization to an extent generally comparable to that of the V-12 program for these activities. The length of the course was established as eight, sixteen or twenty-four weeks, depending on the individual needs of the trainees, such needs to be determined by the college attended. In June of 1945 Monmouth College at Monmouth, Illinois, forseeing an in- creased civilian enrollment for its fall term, asked the Navy to release it from its contract and to terminate its NARU QV-5, unit by the end of july. The Navy agreed, and arrangements were made to establish a new unit at Muhlenberg College, replacing the one at Monmouth and superseding the small V-12 unit previously scheduled to be continued at Muhlenberg. During the last week of June 1945, Mr. Harry A. Benfer, Registrar and Dean of Freshmen at Muhlenberg, serving as academic coordinator for the new program, visited Monmouth to confer with the academic authorities and with the Commanding Officer of the unit, Lieutenant S. B. Christian, USNR. Lieutenant Christian was later transferred to Muhlenberg to remain Commanding Officer of the unit here. With the arrival of the unit, Dr. Tyson indicated that he wished the NARU trainees to participate in the College life to the extent that the demands of their work and the Navy routine would permit. To this end the trainees were accorded the use of the Library, were invited to attend daily Chapel, and were urged to compete on athletic teams and enter other extra-curricular activities. The College purchased drums for the use of the Navy drum and bugle corps which was to func- tion for daily marching to classes and at weekly military reviews, and made available the services of the band director. The College also presented the unit with a flag for use in military reviews. Navy representation on the College Student Council "Rusty,U a Chesapeake Bay retriever, was presented to the Muhlenberg unit as mascot. Above, he is shown walking on the campus with his Marine masters. Below, "Rusty" with several of his admirers. i981 vm ,...f,. X F V ' -V.'.s,QSV ' J' X fs 5. V. ,- w .. .. ,,..,., . .. VV. .v. 2:5 .

R n 4 continued as it had under the V-12 program, and Naval trainees were urged to participate in all of the social affairs under its sponsorship. Other efforts to make the Navy personnel feel at home from the start were the informal gatherings sponsored by the members of the Womenls Auxiliary of Muhlenberg College, and the President's garden parties for the trainees following the first general assembly of the group. At the request of the Commanding Officer assistance in seeking housing for the wives and families of the trainees was provided, and arrangements through the local YWCA were made to set up a listing bureau for such facilities. Representatives of this organization inspected rooms and apart- ments and were on hand to offer counsel and advice wherever possible. Arrange- ments were also made for subsequent provision of a lounge room for all hands in the Library and for space in a nearby fraternity house where married trainees could get together for social functions. THE FIRST NARU UNIT ARRIVES On Thursday, July 26, 1945 the new trainees ordered to the program from the various selecting commands throughout the service reported on board. The total number reporting was 193. These men were of rates from seaman second class to chief petty officer. The unit was organized as one battalion of three companies, subdivided into platoons which were identical with class sections. The battalion was formed twice daily, prior to morning colors, observed by the entire battalion, and prior to afternoon classes, at which time the orders of the day were read, uni- forms were inspected and the battalion passed in review before its student staff. In view of the limited size of the Commanding Officer's staff, many of the minor details of the day's military routine as well as discipline in study halls, barracks, and elsewhere on the station were handled by the student battalion chief, with spot checking and supervision by the commissioned oflicers and chief petty officers of the ship's company. The duty watch of the company was also composed of members of the student battalion staff, most of whom were chief petty officers and petty ofncers, first class. In addition a trainee watch to which all hands were assigned handled routine matters during the period between taps and reveille. No trainees were excused from classes or other assigned functions because of watch duties. A demerit system was used to record infractions of station regulations and other lapses of discipline, with certain liberty restrictions being imposed for ac- cumulated demerits and extra work assignments being made for the larger accumu- lations. Separations from the program for disciplinary reasons were provided for in the station's order, but only two such separations were made from the july to September period. No separations were made on account of unofficerlike qualities of the trainees. The daily schedule called for reveille at 6 A. M. followed by a twenty minute Trainees blend their voices in the familiar Christmas carols during the annual chapel service before the holidays. 11011 calisthenics period. After breakfast and the cleaning of rooms, morning colors and classes until noon, lunch, a very short free period, inspection, and afternoon classes until 3:30. From 3:30 until 4:20 Naval activities, such as military drill, training films, and Naval Organization classes, were scheduled. Station liberty followed until 7 :30, being interrupted by supper. Compulsory study hours in quarters were observed from 7:30 until 9:30, with tattoo at 9:50 and taps at 10:00. Except for men re- stricted for disciplinary reasons or with academic failures, liberty for all hands was granted from immediately after Captain's inspection and battalion review at 1:15 Saturday to 9:30 Sunday evening. The liberty zone was within the State of Penn- sylvania, with permissions to go outside this zone limited to two in each eight-week period. The quality of academic work as reflected by the small size of the weekly "tree" was high. The few men whose work was unsatisfactory gave promise of im- provement, and there were no separations from the program for academic reasons during their stay at Muhlenberg. The station had settled down to normal wartime routine very quickly. Morale was good and a fairly taut ship was maintained. To all appearances the trainees, were in general, genuinely interested in Naval Aviation, and realized the seriousness of their job and were attempting to prepare themselves as thoroughly as the pro- gram would permit for the duties that lay ahead. V-I DAY ANNOUNCED President Truman's announcement of the Japanese surrender was received with the same jubilation as elsewhere. It immediately became apparent, however, espe- cially as further details of the Navy's demobilization plans and the future of the flight training program became available, that interest in further training was rapidly being lost by a large number of men. Many men were uncertain as to their future desires and only a small proportion seemed decided on making a career of the Naval service. The general uncertainty as to the future caused trainee morale to drop and there was an inevitable slackening of discipline as the trainees went about their daily duties. Some of the details as to the future were soon forthcoming. Men desiring to continue in the flight training program were required to sign at once agreeing to serve four years if undergoing training as aviation cadets or approximately three years if training was to be taken in their present rate as student aviation pilots. Men not desiring to sign such agreements were to be transferred immediately to general service, or, in the relatively few cases where eligible men had the required number of discharge points, were to be transferred to the nearest Separation Center for immediate separation. The Commanding Officer held group meetings and gave a large number of Trainees relax in the Library lounge, above. Below, They stand inspection in front of East Hall. . 51021 V 2 . li -,w 'Ph ' wwk .

The advantages of reserve personnel to transfer to the regular Navy service, regardless of flight training prospects, were also dealt with. On September 2, 1945 arrangements were completed for the transfer of the men leaving the program to be sent to the Receiving Station at the Philadelphia Navy Yard, and for the separation of men leaving the service under the point formula. The station again settled down to an orderly routine, and discipline and morale were improving substantially. The unit at Muhlenberg had 166 men on V-J Day who were scheduled to con- tinue in training. Of this number, 58 were scheduled to graduate prior to September 20th. Appropriate graduation ceremonies were planned, with Lieutenant Samuel W. Miller, USNR, Editor of the Allentown Evening Chronicle, serving as com- mencement speaker and reviewing oiiicer of the graduation reviews. Muhlenberg College indicated its willingness to continue the training of as many men as the Navy wished to send it, not to exceed the contractual commitments. While the future of the unit as to size and life expectancy appeared uncertain on V-J Day, there was no doubt whatever that any number of men the Navy chose to assign to Muhlenberg and however long the training might last, the personnel would receive the same devoted attention from the College as had been evidenced in the past for the V-12 Unit and for the two months of NARU that was now completed.

Special certificates provided by the College were presented by Lieutenant S. B. Christian to fifty-eight men who met the Col- lege's standards for the courses required by the Navy. Lieutenant Samuel W. Miller, USNR, who served aboard Aircraft Carriers in the Pacinc, was the speaker at the graduation exercises in which Dr. Levering Tyson, President of the College, and Lieutenant Alexander Williamson, USNR, Assistant Director of Training in the Fourth Naval District, represented the District Training Office at the ceremonies. On September 20, 1945 sixty-one men, who had completed their training, were transferred to the Naval Air Station, Brooklyn, New York for future assign- ments. On the same day twenty-six men who had been assigned to the program prior to V-J Day, reported on board from their previous training center at San Francisco, California. Of that number eight elected to return to general duty and on September 25th were transferred to the Navy Yard, Philadelphia. The second term of the program on the Muhlenberg campus began September 20th with a complement of 123 trainees. It was during this term that Lieutenant Theodore T. Abel, USNR, reported aboard to assume command, Lieutenant Christian leaving for his new assignment at the Great Lakes Naval Training Station. New Station Orders were issued October 18, 1945 and remained in effect throughout the remainder of the program. All operations proceeded smoothly and according to schedule. Graduation exercises were again held on November 10, 1945 with seventy-four men receiving certificates, indicating that they had completed their Navy assignments in the program to the satisfaction of the College. On the same day eighty-one men were transferred to the Naval Air Station, Brooklyn, New York. The speaker at the graduation exercises was Lieutenant Commander Winheld M. Slemmer, USNR, who had Aircraft Carrier duty in both the Atlantic and the Pacific theatres. The final term began November 15, 1945 with thirty-one men who were hold- overs from the previous terms, twenty-nine men who were transferred from the Naval Academic Refresher Unit at Cornell College, Mount Vernon, Iowa, and ten men who were assigned from San Francisco, California. There were seventy-seven men in the unit for the eight-week term and only one was dropped for disciplinary or other reasons.

The speaker at the graduation exercises was Rear Admiral O. S. Colclough, USN, judge Advocate of the Navy. With the completion of training activities on January 10, the next fifteen days were spent preparing for the decommissioning of the Unit when notice was received that a new V-12 unit of approximately 150 men would be assigned to Muhlenberg College forrtraining from March 1946 through June 1946. It is deserving of special mention that in every conceivable way Muhlenberg College, its Administrative Staff and its Faculty, cooperated to the fullest extent with the Navy and the Station Officers in the operation of the training program that proceeded according to schedule without any serious difficulties. Class schedules were arranged well in advance of new units and assignments to classes were carried out in an orderly and respectful fashion and without delays. Muhlenberg permitted men who had time at their disposal, and who were qualified to take regular college courses, to carry in addition to their Navy curriculum additional credits toward anticipated degrees from Muhlenberg or other colleges. The College also invited men who were interested to participate in extra-cur- ticular activities, and trainees availed themselves of the opportunities offered. They were, generally speaking however, a group not particularly interested in a general college program, realizing that at all times they had a definite task to perform without seeking added responsibilities. The Drum and Bugle Corps of the V-5 Unit heads the parade before the Science Building. Below, The trainees pass in review in the shadows on the Gideon F. Egner Chapel. f 109 1 The Last V-12 Unit OR the first time in three years the Muhlenberg campus was entirely civilian from january until March, 1946. During this period there was no Navy unit stationed at the College, and many students, for the first time in their college careers, went to classes without seeing uniforms. Even Rusty Gizmo, the Chesapeake Bay retriever that Mrs. John Henry Leh had presented to the unit, seemed to be suffering from the peace-time reconversion. Rusty had become a part of every Naval unit stationed at 'Berg and was sworn in as "Sentry at the East Hall barracks" by Captain Scelsi of the Marine detachment. Only at the completion of the training program did the dog receive his discharge from Lieutenant Commander T. T. Abel, last commanding offlcer of the unit at Muhlenberg. When classes began for the March semester, however, a V-12 unit was once again installed in East Hall. Civilian enrollment, mostly former service men, was at this time approaching the 500 mark, but Muhlenberg, as before, continued its constant efforts to be of service to the government. With the advent of the new unit and the increased college enrollment, facilities were taxed to the utmost. Provision had to be made for feeding and housing a civilian student body as large as any before the war plus the 150 men of the unit. Faculty and administration tackled the problem with characteristic vigor. Dormitory rooms were utilized to the fullest possible degree. Newspaper and radio appeals to the people of Allentown met with splendid response, and numerous students were able to be housed throughout the city. Measures were taken in the Commons to provide for the additional numbers of men. Increases were made in the Faculty, and teachers cooperated in instructing the greatest number of students ever to be enrolled at Muhlenberg. THE UNIT COMES ABOARD. Navy uniforms once again became part of the campus scene with the start of the March, 1946 semester. Approximately 150 reported to Lieutenant Commander T. T. Abel and his staff on the first day of the month. For the most part, the men in the program came directly to college from civilian life. During the early days of the month, until uniforms were issued, it was not an unusual sight to see trainees walking about the buildings still dressed as civilians. As the weeks went by, how- ever, and the program continued, a fairly taut ship, as before, was developed. Men in the Muhlenberg unit were from various parts of the country, with Pennsylvania, the New England States, and Louisiana predominating. Above is the final review of the V-5 Unit. Individual pictures of the members of the V-12 Unit follow. V 1:1101 'E 9 if 2 5 4 A ' 4 31' 1.5 ,Ie V 5 '5:wf,:1' '? '-zz: .g.:V:15,:, .:' - IV- WfQf7r'backfe "1' ' -., I . g f X ,, AV 8 ygyg.

Men took regular academic subjects required by the Navy for officer training, and they attended classes with civilians, in contrast to the V-5 program. All the men were fully accredited college students and were permitted to engage in college activities in their spare time, provided it did not interfere with the Navy's program. Several Bluejackets wrote for the Weekly' and sang with the Chapel Choir. Trainees also took part in spring sports, playing on the tennis team and participating in track. In intramural competition among fraternities and dormitories, the unit entered several soft ball teams and participated in the intramural track meet. In general, members of the unit took advantages of these extra-curricular activities as former V-12 units had done, in spite of their limited length of stay at Muhlenberg. In addition to academic work, trainees were given six hours of physical educa- tion and drill a week. Included in this total were two hours weekly of swimming. As before, this was carried on at the jewish Community Center, whose facilities Muhlenberg leased from the program. College officials were once again available to advise and counsel the Navy men. Dean Harry A. Benfer conferred with many on their future education, and at the termination of the program numerous eligible unit men were enrolled at the College. Lieutenant Commander Theodore T. Abel, who had headed the V-5 unit at Muhlenberg at the termination of that program, continued in command of the new V-12 section. After serving on the staff of the commanding officer of the V-12 unit at the University of Washington, he served as executive officer and then command- ing officer of the Academic Refresher Unit at Newberry College in South Carolina. After his transfer to Muhlenberg he was given a spot promotion to the rank of Lieutenant Commander. The executive officer of the Muhlenberg unit was Lieutenant Commander Harold Crook. Other members of the ship's company, included F. McCrehan, C. Sp QAQ, L. R. Gandy, Ph. M. lfc, J. O. Yaeger, Y 2fc, W. D. Herreid, SK2 X c, and H. End, SOM 3fc. CLOSING CEREMONIES On June 12 the unit presented a Graduation Ball at Castle Garden in Dorney Park. Music for dancing from nine till twelve was by Bud Rader and his orchestra, and the civilian student body and Faculty were invited guests. The committee in charge consisted of C. Smith, B. Boyer, W. Bradford, D. D. Dunn, D. L. Foote, M. Hall, R. A. Hamre, WC Y. Naill, W. E. Patton, G. E. Powell, L. Smid, W. C. Stewart, and R. Young. At the College's 79th commencement exercises 129 trainees received special certificates on the completion of their training. Following the ceremonies trainees Individual members of the V-12 Unit at left. 51133 proceeded to their next Navy assignment. Men eligible for discharge went to separa- tion centersg some men entered a training plan whereby they continued college at government expense and completed their Navy service after graduation, and others were assigned to various stations throughout the United States. The remaining members of the shipls company, after completing all records and finishing their work, left Muhlenberg about the middle of July, a little over three years after the first V-12 unit was established on the campus. "WELL DONEP' At commencement, upon completion of Muhlenberg's three year training pro- gram, the Navy Department awarded its certificate of the Mark of Commendation to the College to honor the school's job of training 2000 prospective officers. Cap- tain Harold R. Stevens, director of training in the Fourth Naval District, made the presentation. Vice-Admiral R. C. Conolly, the commencement speaker, added the Navy's traditional, terse accolade, "Well done!" for Muhlenberg's efforts. Commented the Allentown Morning-Call editorially: "A city's pride in an institution and its men is properly enhanced when it becomes known that of all the young men who left Muhlenberg College for midshipmen schools, only Hve failed to receive commissions. And that pride will be further increased when it is known that this is the best record attained by any of the 139 colleges of the United States which cooperated with the U. S. Navy during the war in its educational program. "Muhlenberg for four years has labored in behalf of the nation and its first arm of defense, and it has merited and received the highest award that a great nation can give through the officers of its Navy."

If Waterloo was really won on the playing fields of Eton, then American success in World War II was probably due in no small degree to extensive physical education programs that schools had fostered. Recognizing these facts, the govern- ment sought to keep sports alive and expand physical training, particularly in the V-5 and V-12 programs. In spite of the numerous handicaps of lack of students, curtailed transportation, and accelerated schedules, Muhlenberg maintained sports as an integral part of student life. In fact, during these war years, a new sport, soccer, became a per- manent part of this program, and the Cardinal and Gray enjoyed three years of national importance in the collegiate basketball picture. Football, tennis, track, baseball, cross-country-all these sports continued on the campus from 1943 to 1946. Often material was lacking, practices were short, schedules were abbreviated. The results may not have been up to pre-war standards, but the spirit that is typically Muhlenberg's continued. Coaching was no longer the thorough, precise job it once had been, turn-over in civilian enrollment and Navy units was rapid and unpredictable. But always there was intense interest in varsity and intramural athletics. It was during the war years that soccer became Hxed in Muhlenberg's sports program. Wrestling attained new popularity. But chiefly, it is for three great basketball squads that these years will be remembered. During the 1943-44 season Marine trainees stationed in Allentown paced Muhlenberg through a season that faced the top cage crews in the East and compiled a 20 and 5 record. For the first time in Muhlenberg's history the College played in the National Invitation Tournament in New York, an honor also accorded the teams the two following seasons. In 1944-45 a squad with both civilians and Navy men reached national prominence, a feat duplicated by the next year's team, com- posed of civilians. Traditional intramural activities were also kept up by the student body through- out the period. All in all, athletics and sports held their accustomed place in Muhl- enberg life-in spite of a war. . Muhlenberg's Van Combs, left, and Jim Doran, right, dive for the ball before a Navy player in a game played at Rockne Hall, February 15, 1946. The Mules walloped the Middies 62-45, for one of the outstanding victories of their thrill-packed season. 1:1171 Wrestling FTER 1943's highly successful wrestling season when Muhlenberg swept through the year with a record of seven wins and only one loss, wrestling during the war years was much less successful, due to a lack of material and the maintenance of the same rigorous schedule. WAR-TIME LETDO WN ' Coach Carl Frankett's grapplers scored two victories in a nine-match card in the 1944 season. They topped Ursinus and Bucknell, but lost to Lehigh ftwicej, West Point's strong squad, Princeton, Franklin and Marshall, Swarthmore, and Penn State's power-house. The year was opened on January 6 against Lehigh's highly touted civilian squad, one of the best in the East. Final count was 19-13 in favor of the Engineers, but victories were registered in the following classes: 121 pounds, Byron Somers, 165 pounds, Bob Hetrick, and heavyweight, Russel Storms. Joe Costabile appeared in the 128 pound division, John Walker in the 136 pound class, Eugene Rupert at 145 pounds, Bob Morton at 155 pounds, and Bob Smith in the 175 pound section. Against Princeton University Walker and Hetrick chalked up victories for the six points 'Berg amassed against twenty-six for the Tigers. Third match pitted the Cardinal and Gray grapplers against the Cadets of West Point, and Army walked away with a 34-0 triumph. By Somers, Collins in the 136 pound division, and Hetrick lost close decisions. - Franklin and Marshall took the Mules into camp by a 25 to 5 count, with Bob Hetrick marking up the lone victory for the Allentonians in his class. In their next match the Mules battled Swarthmore College right down to the last match before succumbing, 17-11. Somers, Collins, and Hetrick won, and Bob Morton, out- weighted and a head shorter than his opponent, battled pluckily before being beaten in the heavyweight division. Even more thrilling was the 17-13 Win over Ursinus. Forfeiting live points in one class, the Mules took the match on wins by brothers By and Gerald Somers, Hetrick and Bob Smith, and a iinal 3-0 decision in favor of Morton in the heavy- weight class. On the very next day the second win of the year was registered by Top, The 1943 Wrestling squad. First row, left to right: Frederick johnson, William Price, George Woodley, Bertram Gilbert, Warren Nafis, George Beisel, Earl Bender, Thomas O'Hagen, William Evans.

Winners were By Somers, Stergios, Hetrick, and Morton. Against Penn State only Bob Herrick won for the Mules and the final was 27-6 in favor of the Nittany Lions. Final bout of the season was against Lehigh, this the Engineers took, 23-6. Byron Somers turned in another win, and Bob Smith also beat his man. GRAPPLERS IMPROVE In the 1944-45 season a squad consisting mostly of Naval trainees won three and tied one in the nine-match schedule. Outstanding was a 26-8 reversal of Lehigh, who had swept an earlier meeting in the season. ,Two losses were to Army and Navy. Best record was made by By Somers, the captain, competing in the 121 pound class. He won seven out of nine bouts. Other grapplers included, in the 128 pound division, Herb Hillman and Gerald Somers, Chauncey Paxson at 136 pounds, Lou Chipman and Jerry Braverman in the 145 pound classg in the 155 pound class, John Schmuck and Elliot Cohn, at 165, Gordon Gish, Jim Henry, Terrence Roe, Bob Schmidt, and Harry Gerhardtg and in the heavyweight class, George Rhoads. The season opened with a 23-13 loss to Lehigh. In the next match, however, Princeton was trounced by an identical score, Mules 23, the Tigers, 13. Army's great ,squad took the Cardinal and Gray to the tune of 29-5, but the Allentown team won its second victory by defeating the Garnet of Swarthmore, 21-13. Bucknell decisioned the Mules, 21-15, and Ursinus was held to a tie, 18 all. The worst defeat of the year came at the hands of Navy's wrestlers, 34-O. Strengthened, however, by this experience and much practice, the Mules upset the Engineers of Lehigh, 26-8, for the year's sweetest victory. Final match of the year was swept by King's Point Merchant Marine, another service school, 26-0. 1945-46 SQUAD WEAK The pinch in man-power was even more keenly felt in the 1945-46 season, as a willing but green Muhlenberg team dropped all its matches. Results included a 36-0 defeat by Lehigh, a 33-3 drubbing by Swarthmore, a loss to Princeton, 38-0, and defeats by Navy, 36-0, and Army, 34-0. Final match was an exhibition against the Philadelphia Naval Hospital to entertain wounded veterans. Brightest spots in the season were Tommy Snyder in the 121 pound class, and a young group of wrestlers whose experience will make them potential greats for future years.

The Mules opened their season by defeating the Leopards of Lafayette, 862 to 391A,. Clashing at the Muhlen- berg track, the locals' overall strength proved too muchfor the Eastonians. Mule athletes took ten lirsts. The foursome of Hill, Haldeman, Price, and Ahern won both the Middle Atlantic States Conference Mile and the College Class Mile Relay at the Penn Relays. Haverford, next on the schedule, was beaten, 861g to 58w. The Mules proved their power by besting the Scarlet and Black team on their own Philadelphia track. The only thing even resembling a tarnish on the squad's record was a 63-63 tie with Lehigh on May 5th. In spite of Hale's javelin heave of 185' 4" for a new school record, the Engineers were able to eke out a tie with Mules. Climax of the season was the winning of the M.A.S.C.A.A. championship. The meet took place at the Lehigh track, and Muhlenberg this time beat out the Engin- eers, who took second place. For Coach Ernie Fellows' boys the win was significant, for it marked the first time the Mules had ever taken the league crown. Only Cross Country meet for the Mule harriers in 1943 was one with Lehigh, held at Muhlenberg on October 2. By snatching first and second places, the Mules were able to humble the En- gineers, 22-37. - 1944 TRACK Coach Roland Wolfe's track team opened a successful season by swamping C.C.N.Y., 85-41. Although hindered by a slow, wet track, the Allentonians easily beat the visitors to gain their initial victory. Traveling to Swarthmore, the Mules took their second triumph of the season by topping the Philadelphia college, 6815 to WW. Swarthmore and 'Berg combined forces to meet the University of Pennsylvania at Franklin Field on May 6. Even with the 30 points contributed by Mule athletes, the two schools went down to defeat before the strong Quakers, 68-59. After their close triumph in the M.A.S.C.A.A. Track and Field championships the year before, the local thin-clads took the title for the second consecutive year Above is shown the 1943 Championship Penn Relay Team from Muhlenberg. Members are, from left to right, Bob Price, Bob Haldeman, Arthur Hill, james Ahern, and James Remaley.

Acting as host school, the Cardinal and Gray piled up 58 5X6 points, twelve points ahead of the nearest college, Swarthmore. In all, nine schools competed. In a triangular meet with Villanova and Lehigh the Mules finished second, as the Wildcat powerhouse captured the affair. Price LeBlanc, a 'Berg V-12 trainee, set a new College record by pole-vaulting 12' 1". A consistent winner all year, LeBlanc broke his ankle in the record-breaking vault. Last track activity was the Penn Relays, where a 'Berg quartet, Miller, Sarcone, Richeson, and Wampole, placed second in the Middle Atlantic mile relay. In the college mile the Mules ran fifth. TRACK IN 1945 Meeting Lafayette College in the opening meet of the season, the Mules swept through the Leopards, winning 74-51. Chiefly responsible for the triumph were complete sweeps in the 220, both dash and hurdles, and the pole vault. At the Penn Relays the local runners placed sixth and fifth in the college mile relay events. After two years of Muhlenberg domination, the Middle Atlantic track title went to Swarthmore, the host school in 1945. Bright spot for the Mules was Coker's win in the discus throw. In the seasonls last dual meet mighty Penn State swamped the Mules, 108 to 18. Coker in the discus was the only first the locals could garner in the afternoon. Swarthmore, league champion, took a triangular meet at Muhlen- berg, compiling 104y2 points, to 34 for Muhlenberg, and ISMZ for Lehigh. 1946 TRACK Under the leadership of Coach Bud Barker, the '46 version of Mule thin-clads began building for future championship teams. Opening meet of the season found four teams competing at the Muhlenberg field. VA well-balanced Bucknell squad took first place, and Lehigh beat out the Mules for the runner-up spot, 42-MW. Vern Miller of ,Berg captured both the discus and javelin. Rutgers copped the conference title for the year by taking the M.A.S.C.A.A. meet. The Mules registered 12 5 X6 points, Miller and dash man Ed Sikorski con- tributing 11 of them. Temple topped the Allentonians in a dual meet at Phila- delphia, 72-54, but Ed Sikorski was a double winner in the 220-yard dash and the broad jump. Final event on the schedule was a triangular meet which Lafayette took, the Mules grabbing second, and Haverford finishing third. . At left, Muhlenberg's Van Combs C173 finds plenty of opposition from Dick Hole of Rhode Island State as he attempts a shot during the semi-finals of the 1946 National Invitational Tournament.

Shank- weiler's tennis charges, crippled by the war and graduation, limped through the 1943 season without winning any of the five matches in the abbreviated season. At no time during the season did the local net-men manage to win a single match, as Swarthmore, Penn State, and Lehigh overwhelmed the Mules, 9-0, and Lehigh repeated the victory with a 10-0 win. Haverford was leading, 5-0 when rain called a halt to that meet. Singles were played in 1943 by Ned Schantz, Hank Trostle, Ed Muller, Don Gebert, Ed Phillips, and Dennis Webster. Doubles combinations in- cluded Shantz and Trostle, Gebert and Phillips, and Muller and Webster. IMPROVEMENT IN 1944 With some of these same men returning the following year, Coach Shankweiler was able to mold a more successful team for the next court campaign. With Schantz and Phillips back to play singles, and new men like Dave Maakestad, Dan Simon, Dave Suess, and Welling Adams the Mules fared slightly better through the 1944 season. In the season's opening encounter the Engineers from Lehigh were humbled to the tune of a 7-2 drubbing. Phillips, Simon, Suess, and Adams all turned in singles wins, and Shantz and Maakestad, Phillips and Simon, and the pair, Adams and Bleiler, all registered triumphs in doubles play. The University of Pennsylvania overwhelmed the Mules, 9-0, in the season's second match. The next week, Bucknell squeezed out a victory over the still out- manned Mules by the narrowest of margins, 5-4. Later in the season, though, the Bisons topped the Allentonians, 6-5. Penn Stateis racquet-wielders vanquished the Mules 9-0 in the season's third match. By sweeping all three doubles matches Swarth- more was able to topple the Cardinal and Gray by a 5-4 count on May 20. Muhlen- berg's early lead was swept away as the Garnet players registered wins in the two- man play. Meeting their early season victims, Lehigh, once again, the Mules succeeded in taking their second match of the spring by a 5-4 margin. Three wins in singles play and two triumphs in the doubles competition turned the trick. The Muhlenberg tennis squad for 1943 is above, the 1944 team below. Members of the upper team include, left to right, Ned Schantz, Willard Inglis, Dennis Webster, Paul Gebert, Ed Muller, Henry Trostle, Tommy Miller, and Edward Phillips. The '44 squad consisted of, left to right, Chief Ross, Edward Phillips, Daniel Simon, David Suess, David Maakestad, Welling Adams, Paul Bleiler, and Ned Schantz. ' f1261 1 I I Qi v ? 2 i TENNIS STAYS ALIVE IN 1945 Without a single experienced player on the campus and with a heavy schedule in the Biology Department allowing Coach Shankweiler no time to drill a team, the tennis outlook at Muhlenberg was dismal as April rolled around. However, a group of students, both civilian and Navy, determined that the College would have some representation on the courts. Under the leadership of Hank Moyer, practice was begun, and two matches played. Members of the informal squad included Mason, Peterson, jones, and Cohn of the V-12 unit and Moyer, Carl Borger, and Bob Horst, civilians. Swarthmore and Princeton both easily managed to defeat the Mule team by 9-0 scores, but the sport continued on the campus without any interruption, even during these critical war years. 1946 EDITION COMPILES 4 AND 3 RECORD The tennis picture brightened in 1946 as Spring came around again. Dr. Shank- weiler was once again able to find time to direct the Mule net-men. With the end of the war, Wfalt Weller returned from service to head the squad. A veteran of previous court campaigns, he returned to complete his senior year and was elected honorary captain of the 1946 tennis team at the season's end. Back also were Bob Ranken, and Howard Haring. Bob Cerney, erstwhile Big Ten star, was assigned to the V-12 unit at 'Berg and also joined the team. With Cerney playing number one singles and Weller participating in the num- ber two spot, Klink, Ranken, Haring, Manager Ernest Hoh, and Hank Moyer filled the other solo positions. Doubles combinations included Cerney and Klink, Weller and Ranken, and Warren Bross paired with either Haring or Moyer. In the season's opener Swarthmore topped the Mules, 7-2, as only VU eller won his singles. He teamed with Ranken to score the other point in dual play. The score was reversed against Haverford, Muhlenberg winning this one, 7-2. Lehigh's well-drilled team twice topped the Cardinal and Gray, 9-0 the first time, in the second match the Mules wittled the score down to 7-2. Other victories were recorded when Drexel and Bucknell were humbled. The first was an 8-1 win, the second, a narrow 5-4 win over the Bisons. Tennis stars of the 1946 season included, above, from left, Don Cerney, former Big Ten star in the V-12, Walt Weller, who returned from service to captain team, Hank Moyer, from India, and Howard Haring, another veteran. The team below was made up of, kneeling, left to right, Bob Ranken, Bob Cerney, W'alt Weller, and Bill Klinkg stzzndiazg, Howard Haring, Ernie Hoh, Warren Bross, and Hank Moyer. 51291 Football THE 1943 FOOTBALL SEASON UHLENBERG'S 1943 grid machine, tutored by Alvin "Doggie" julian, now backfield coach at Holy Cross College, was composed mainly of Navy and Marine trainees who were stationed on the campus with the Navy V-12 program. While most of the boys had previous collegiate experience, frequent loss of players by transfers and injuries played havoc with Coach julian's plans for a winning ball club. The Mules fought gamely through a long and tough schedule, winning but one game and losing ten. Opening the campaign with the Bulldogs of Yale in Yale Bowl in New Haven, the Mules drew first blood as Walt Duncavage in the second period swept around end for a score, climaxing a sustained drive which had been sparked by the brilliant running of Bob Haldeman and the accurate passing of Dave Griffith. In the third period Yale unleashed a passing attack which netted the Bulldogs a touch- down. Powell of Yale later in the period intercepted a 'Berg pass and raced 55 yards for another tally to seal a 13 to 6 victory for the Bulldogs. With Zyg Zamlynski and Al Postus running wild, Villanova threw a dark cloud upon Muhlenberg's hopes for victory in the home season opener as the Wild- cats romped to a 35 to 12 victory over the Mules. Pass interceptions by Mule center Ray Zaney led to two touchdowns and a 13 to 0 victory for the Julian charges over the Lakehurst Naval Air Station. Grihith carried for the first score, and Zaney scooted 59 yards for the second tally. Meeting the Bisons of Bucknell at Lewistown in the fourth game of the season, the Mules faced a rugged eleven which dominated the offensive play throughout the encounter. After an early Bison touchdown Muhlenberg rallied as Yerkes went over for a six-pointer. A second score by the Thundering Herd proved to be the last of the day, but on four other occasions the Bisons were halted at the goal line by a determined Muhlenberg forward wall to hold Bucknell to a 14 to 6 triumph. Although appearing to be superior in every department the Mules were unable to jump back into the win column in their contest the following Week with Swarth- more. Haldeman and Yerkes tallied for 'Berg to match the two touchdowns scored by the Philadelphia suburbans, but an unsuccessful extra point conversion attempt gave Swarthmore a 14 to 13 edge. Muhlenberg football stars shown on the opposite page include linemen Robert Krimmel and Fritz Eisenhard, top row, left to right, two backs, Tony Annecchiarico and Ed Sikorski, and Dick Webster, an end, in the second row,' in the bottom row, Dave Griliith, former Moravian ace, who was killed in active service, William Hochella, an end, also from Moravian, center, and Thaddeus Szela, a back. Annecchiarico, fleet Junior pass receiver, entered the service and returned to Muhlenberg after the 1945 season was over. He thus missed playing his Senior year. Ed Sikorski, however, returned to school after discharge to participate in spring training for the '46 season. ' 51301 f ff hr 1 y 111. 1 1 -as "ya 9' 4 M-."1:3 Paced by Iannicelli and Zodda, Franklin and Marshall added to the Mules' problems as the Diplomats shutout the 'Berg gridders 20 to 0. Scoring seven points in each period, with three counters the result of the passing of Doug Rehor, the Diplomats came back the next week to again down the Mules -28 to 6 at Lancaster. Bill Loll took a pass from Duncavage and raced 48 yards for the lone Muhlenberg tally. In a game played in a drenching downpour at Bucknell, the Bisons rang up their second victory of the season over the Mules as Gene Hubka's aerials dumped the Mules 19 to 0. The ill-fated Mules returned home and again found the going tough as the Atlantic City Naval Air Station's Tony Veteri passed for three touchdowns to bewilder the julian eleven. The Mules' only score came on a sensational 75-yard run by Bob Morton. The fracas ended with Atlantic City on top, 27 to 7. Swarthmore, electing to give the threatening Mules an intentional automatic safety with the score 12 to 6 and three minutes of play remaining, gained possession of the ball and managed to nose out Muhlenberg 12 to 8 at Swarthmore. During the last period the Mules drove to the two-yard line and then to the five but were unable to score. Although no match for their opponents, the Mules played inspired ball against a crack Sampson Navy team in the season's finale. The Sampson gridders, led by Andy Stopper of Villanova, Don Principe of the New York Giants, and Bill Maceyko of Cornell, downed the Mules 28 to 7. Outplaying their opponents in the second half, the Mules held Sampson to seven points while they tallied a similar number on a score by Morton and a conversion by Walter. GRIDIRON WARS OF 1944 The 1944 Muhlenberg football entry, also under the direction of Coach julian and his staff, proved to be an aggressive and versatile aggregation. With a host of able backs and a line well above average, the team compiled a record of four wins and five defeats-a decided improvement over the previous year. Again Navy and Marine trainees prevailed on the roster. However, civilian talent also added to the squad and played an important role in the latter half of the season when much of the service strength was lost due to transfer of personnel. Muhlenberg opened the campaign with the Bucknell Bisons downing the Mules 24 to 7. While Heet Bucknell backs frustrated the Mules' hopes of starting off on the blue side of the ledger by crashing through for four touchdowns, the locals had to be content with a third-period score which resulted from a pass from Charles Lange to Joe Saltzgiver. In an attempt to even the score with.Bucknell, Coach Julian and his hopefuls Other Navy and Marine trainees of the 1943 football squad were Morris Quint, a back, and joe Shanosky, big tackle, top row, and, bottom row, back George Duplaga, who also played the following year, Frank Killian, rugged guard, and Bob Haldeman, another back. 1:1351 travelled to Lewisburg the following week only to find themselves again unable to cope with the Thundering Herd. The Cardinal and Gray line proved more for- midable as it stalled the Bison ground attack, but Gene Hubka went to- the air for two touchdowns and a 14 to 0 win. . Penn State, showing too much power for the much lighter Mules, handed the 'Berg eleven its third straight reverse as it pounded out a 58 to 13 win at State College. Muhlenberg's offensive strength broke loose the following week as Earl Howell, George Duplaga, and Chester Makoid led a live-touchdown scoring parade giving the Mules a 33 to 6 victory over Swarthmore. Trailing 18 to 6 going into the final period in its game with Franklin and Marshall, a spirited Muhlenberg team bowled over for two scores in the game's closing minutes to knot the score at 18 to 18. At this point Earl Howell calmly converted the all-important extra point to put the Mules out in front 19 to 18. As the game ended the Mules were again knocking on the Franklin and Marshall front door, but time ran out depriving the Mules of another score. For his play in the Franklin and Marshall game Marine trainee Earl Howell was awarded the Maxwell Award as the most outstanding player of the week in Eastern football. A nineteen-yard touchdown pass in the second period gave Villanova a slim 7 to 0 victory over the Mules in a hard-fought battle in Philadelphia's Shibe Park. In a second contest with Franklin and Marshall, the Mules repeated their earlier victory over the Diplomats as they handed the Lancaster collegians an 18 to 6 defeat. Lange, passing with deadly accuracy, paved the way for the three Mule tallies. Fumbling twelve times, the Atlantic City Naval Air Station found the Mules ready and able to make the most of their miscues as they returned to the seaside on the short end of a 14 to 7 defeat. With Starner and Heaps leading the scoring attack, the Mules outraced the husky sailors for two tallies. Winding up the campaign at Princeton, the Mules succumbed 16 to 6. 'Berg's only scoring came on a 57-yard run by Marty Binder. FOOTBALL IN 1945 With the roster of the 1945 squad consisting mainly of 17-year-olds, a few discharged veterans, and a sprinkling of Navy V -5 trainees, the Mules played an informal five-game schedule, all save one played on foreign gridirons. The record: no victories, five defeats. L' A trainee who had formerly been a civilian student at Muhlenberg Dick Holben, upper left, captained the 1943 team. Upper right is Anthony Torielli, a lineman. james Devlin, insert, was the captain in 1944. Line men of that year include Mike Rogers and Terrence Roe, bottom left and right.

Climaxing a 70-yard march in the initial period, Dick Ferrell passed to Joe Staudinger from the five for a score. A few minutes safety gave two additional points. Swarthmore rallied and converted to trail 8 to 7 as the half ended. In the second half the Swarthmore attack clicked for 21 points to clinch a 28 to 8 victory. Penn State, too powerful for the experienceless Mules, tallied 47 points in the first half to lead Muhlenberg 47 to 0 at the end of the half. The Mules held the Penn State reserves at bay in the second half, while Elmer McQueen drove over for a score for the Mules after a 51-yard drive, but the surge of the Penn State first stringers left the Mules engulfed in the lower end of a 47 to 7 score as the fracas ended. In the third game of the season the Mules travelled to Lancaster to meet the Diplomats of Franklin and Marshall and found them far from easy picking. The Diplomats scored in every period and at the same time squelched the scoring efforts of the Mules to blank the Rosatti crew 30 to O. In the only home game of the season, the presence of the Muhlenberg gridiron was insufficient inspiration to spur the Mules to victory, in a loosely-played contest with Rutgers. Muhlenberg opened up with a score on a 25-yard pass by Ferrell to Lumpkin in the second period, but the New jerseyians came right back with a touchdown in the same frame. Two tallies in the third stanza proved to be the margin of victory for the Rutgers eleven as the Mules failed to even the score again, Rutgers winning 19 to 6. Reviving the long rivalry which had been discontinued during the war years, Muhlenberg ended its season with a game played with Lehigh in Taylor Stadium. In the only scoring spree of the game Lehigh's Charles Hoffman raced for a six- pointer in the third period to break a fast half scoreless tie. The Engineers gained six first downs to the Mules' none, however, the Mule line showed up well through- out the game. I Upper row, left to right, are three '43 stars, Leonard Mikionis, an end, joe Kasperski, a back, and end James Jones. The 1945 squad with Coach Larry Rosatti is shown below. 51373 Basketball AULTING to new heights in collegiate basketball rankings, the Muhlenberg College teams of the past three seasons were thrice invited to National Invita- tional tournaments in the famed New York Madison Square Garden. The recognition the teams earned was a tribute to the outstanding basketball knowledge of Alvin "Doggie" Julian and his successor, Lee Coker, and the undaunted determination of the Muhlenberg representatives to produce winning combinations. 1943-1944 BASKETBALL SEASON Muhlenberg was first selected as one of the eight best teams in the entire United States in 1944, after the "Berg Marines" had compiled a season record of 20 victories in 24 meetings, including two verdicts over Temple University, a club which had been selected the same season to compete in the National Collegiate tournament. It marked the highest notch ever attained by any basketball team representing Muhlenberg. On that nrst night, March 16, 1944, under the lights of Madison Square Garden and before a crowd of more than 18,000 basketball-wise persons, a fast and shifty Muhlenberg team was dumped by the tourney finalists, DePaul University of Chicago. The score, 68 to 45. As the Allentown followers and Muhlenberg rooters will attest, the collegians fought pluckily and well, for it was not until the last ten minutes that the game was decided. George Mikan and his cohorts, favored by the national polls, unleashed a scoring assault and ended Muhlenberg's 1943-44 season. On that squad that made nationwide headlines, there was not one outstanding performer. It was a combination of American manhood which had coupled their talents to achieve one end-a winning team. As a result of the first appearance in the National Invitational Tournament, a wave of enthusiasm was created in Allentown which marked the following teams as teams of destiny. The squads of the following two seasons duplicated the 1944 record with last year's quintet marching into the semi-finals. MARINE STARS ON THE SQUAD Mel Munson had defensive ability and during the 1944 season knocked out many would-be points with his towering height. Roy Triebel, whose heart was as big as his body, topped off his season's performance by leaving his sick-bay bed after three week's confinement to participate in the tourney. Cy Davis and Dick Temple's elongated Bill Budd reaches high in the air to take the ball off the backboard at Rockne Hall. Mule players are Munson CIZD and Dick Miller, jumping.

Clem Doumont was the ace in the julian-coached combination who trumped the opponer1t's goals with one-hand push shots. Bob Smith was the aggressor. Hank Baietti was the floor general because of his smooth, hard working performances, and it was he who was responsible for starting the Muhlenberg plays. Diminutive Jimmy Capehart, who thrilled all with his deception on the hard- woods, whipped the cagers into action. Although weary and intense, he was the main sparkplug in the 1944 Muhlenberg machine. Several days before the first tourna- ment game the United States Marines transferred Jimmy, sending him into another base for additional training for his later participation in the Pacific campaign. The West Virginian missed the opportunity awaited by all basketball players, that of playing in the tournament. He was not forgotten. His buddies played that game for him and then later entered the same theatre of war in the fight for freedom. Now with the war over, many of this same group have returned to the Muhlenberg campus to continue studies and again play basketball. jimmy Crampsey, basketball immortal at Muhlenberg in 1942 and 1943 who registered over 300 points as a civilian student in one season, rejoined the Muhlen- berg team to play in the Garden. He was a Naval trainee student at Penn and was transferred to the air training course at Muh1enberg's annex, Moravian College in Bethlehem. PLAY-BY-PLAY ACCOUNT The then unknown Mule five began its 1943-44 campaign with an unexpected 50-47 win over traditionally strong C.C.N.Y. on the New Yorkers' home court. The Beavers were pre-game favorites, but the talent-ladden Allentonians upset the dope with their triumph. Munson, Meyerdierks, only hold-over from the 'Berg team of the previous year, and Baietti led the attack. A win over Penn State in Rockne Hall followed this triumph. The Cardinal and Gray's first defeat of the young season was sustained on December 8 when Princeton, playing on its home court edged out the Mules, 39-37, in a thrilling battle. A 34-32 win over the Temple Owls, however, stamped the Mules as one of the state's better clubs. Munson with 16 points was the big noise that night. Win Number Four found the local team pounding out a 73-52 margin over the outclassed Engineers of Lehigh. The regulars built up a commanding lead, and the second stringers kept piling it on. Next Swarthmore College was humbled, 63-35.

The string of victories continued with another triumph over the Garnet of Swarthmore, this time 40-28, the game being played away. Dick Miller, earning a starting berth for the first time, tabbed 16 points. The Villanova Wildcats, after holding the powerful Mules to a 32-28 score for three quarters, fell by the way in the final canto, with the Cardinal and Gray taking the contest 53-38. The win was especially significant because Villanova had beaten Princeton, Muhlenberg's only conqueror. Deserting collegiate ranks for their next encounter, the Mules met the red hot Philadelphia Coast Guard quintet at Rockne Hall, and after what fans termed the "best game of the year" the local five emerged on the long end of a 58-41 score. Only in the fourth period did the Muhlenberg superiority begin to exert itself. The undefeated Bucknell Bisons invaded Allentown only to be defeated 48-32 before a capacity house. In less than four minutes the Mules jumped to a 9-0 lead that they never lost. Meeting the University of Pennsylvania for the first time since 1926, Muhlen- berg's team lost its first home game of the season, as the Quakers, playing their best ball of the year, won, 58-46. Next game, however, using the varsity only sparingly, Coach julian watched his squad trample the Philadelphia Marines by a score of 61 to 35. A 16-4 score piled up at the end of the first quarter was sufficient evidence of 'Berg's scoring superiority. Before another capacity house 'Berg racked up win twelve by scoring 8 points in the last fifty seconds to outscore Billy Furgesonis St. Joe Hawks, 49-41. The tri- umph shattered the Philadelphians' eight-game win streak. The Albright Lions were ranked as Number One basketball power in the state of Pennsylvania when they laid their streak of eight straight wins on the line at Rockne Hall on January 29. The result was a 57-26 outclassing, with the mighty Mules completely brushing aside the tall but impotent Reading five. Smith's 14 and Baietti's 12 points took the roar out of the Lions. One of the outstanding victories of the season occurred when Baietti, Triebel, and Company uncorked a dazzling second half offensive to top the University of West Virginia, 76-45. A perfect night from the charity line Q12 for 121 and superior conditioning were responsible for the win. Hank Baietti's 22 points were predominent as the Marine team of Muhlenberg sharpshooters clipped a Navy-manned five from Bloomsburg State Teachers College. At half time it was 33-17, and the final count was 67-51. Anxious for revenge for the early season beating, C.C.N.Y. engaged the high flying Mules at Rockne Hall in a return engagement only to head back to Manhattan the victim of a 59-41 defeat. The Allentown quintet simply had too much, piled up an early lead, and coasted to a surprisingly easy triumph.

A second half drive that was not to be denied turned the trick, and the Mules were stamped as outstanding, in spite of a 39-37 upset loss to Bucknell at Lewisburg. Finishing the season with a blaze of glory, the Cardinal and Gray quintet trimmed Franklin and Marshall 63-44, laced Lehigh, 56-37, and polished off Vill- anova again for victory number 20. Mel Munson set a new college scoring record by dumping 25 points in the baskets against the Engineers. Thus in the regular season the star-studded squad lost only three games and drew 33,933 paid admissions to 15 home games. Along with DePaul, Bowling Green, St. Johnls, Oklahoma A. and M., Canisius, Kentucky, and Utah, the Allentown basketball team appeared in the National Invitational Tourney. To warm up for the Garden affair the Mules met and lost to a tough Sampson Naval Training Station team, 52-47. The Garden game was all George Mikan as the six-foot nine-inch giant scored 27 points and scooped at least 20 'Berg shots out of the basket. The '44-'45 squad is shown in the upper picture. Left to right, they are Coach julian, Charles Gillen, Al julian, jr., Charles Thiesen, john Bird, Robert O'Brien, Tex Rickert, Richard Whiting, jim Doran, and Oscar Baldwin. Three reasons why the Mules were invited to the National Invitational Tournament were, left to rigbt, below, Johnny Bird, Chuck Thiesen, and Bob O'Brien, all freshmen. 51451 BASKETBALL IN THE 1944-45 SEASON The United States Navy and fate combined to send basketball material to Muhlenberg again the following season when Alvin julian shaped and moulded another National Invitational tournament entry. ' Muhlenberg entered the second round of the tourney on March 19, 1945 and was pitted against the defending champions, St. John's University of Brooklyn. The season was bound with success and sorrow. The combination of Oscar "Red" Baldwin, Charlie Thiesen, Jimmy Doran, Richard Prange, Dick Whiting, Joe Bird, and Bob O'Brien compiled a 24 out of 27 game win record when the tournament selection was made. Several days before National Invitational Tournament officials announced that Muhlenberg was selected to play in the classic, Alvin Julian was appointed head basketball coach at' Holy Cross at Worcester, Massachusetts. However, julian re- mained with the Mules until the tourney was completed. When Julian left Allentown, nine years of a varied career for the colorful mentor were completed. During that period he had good and bad seasons, but the two basketball tournament teams earned him a nationwide reputation for his capa- bilities. ' After wading through one of the toughest schedules for small colleges in Eastern United States, Muhlenberg entered its second tournament. This time, the Mules made it an interesting game with St. .lohn's defending champions. With Baldwinls accurate shooting, the Mules-underdogs by a 15 to 1 margin -held a 10-O lead at the quarter mark. And in the last quarter they came within a split hair of upsetting the New York dope, losing out in the last minute, 34 to 35. The lead in that game changed hands eleven times and the one-point defeat was no disgrace. THE TEAM A Red Baldwin, a tireless forward from London, Kentucky, and a Muhlenberg Navy trainee, was selected by the Associated Press by almost unanimous choice to a first-team berth on the All-Pennsylvania collegiate team. The carrot-top set a scoring record with 537 markers and was the pace-setter in the Middle Atlantic collegiate scoring. Charlie Gillen, Philadelphia boy who played throughout the greater part of the season and was a main factor in the remarkable record the College team made, left classes to enter war work. Several weeks later he died of a rheumatic heart. Members of the Muhlenberg team served as pallbearers at the funeral for the young athlete. Other members of the '44-'45 team are at left. Charley Gillen, diminutive guard, left school during the semester to work in a Philadelphia war plant. His sudden death shocked sports enthusiasts, who liked Gillen's aggressiveness. Tex Rickert and Al julian, center, were capable substitutes. "Red" Baldwin, upper right, was scoring ace of the season. jim Doran, lower left, was captain. Lower right is Dick Whiting, Naval trainee from Lower Merion, Penn- sylvania, who started at guard. 51463 J- '1 25 .vi ei f , x ai . GTE -.,:z,, '21-if f , ,., I lt. F 51 ? k 4 4 m-fgfhgrgf 6 , sf.

Dick Whiting, an all-state scholastic choice the preceding season, was a line scoring star. Charlie Thiesen was the master ball handler. john Bird was a dead-pan shooting wizardg Bobby O'Brien, a wide-awake, aggressive guard. They combined fwith Baldwin to form a champion team. Muhlenberg had little reserve strength, a factor that dropped the team from the tourney. Alvin Julian, jr., and Tex Rickert, both in their first seasons of collegiate basketball were hard workers but lacked the much-needed experience of actual competition. As in the season before, another Muhlenberg player entered the armed service several days before the tourney. John Bird was inducted into the Army, but camp officers gave him a furlough to play in the tournament game. SUMMARY OF THE GAMES Prospects for the 1944-45 basketball season were far from bright when Coach Al "Doggie" Julian started practice with no men from the previous season's Marine trainee squad, but out of few Naval trainees and a group of outstanding freshmen, he moulded a team that swept through to eleven straight triumphs, another Garden bid, and a one-point loss to St. John's powerful team in the Invitational Tourney. Though lacking in reserve power, especially towards the end of the season, the Mules won 24 out of 28 games. The season began in late November with a classy 64-34 win over the Juniata Indians at Rockne Hall. Chuck Thiesen and Charley Gillen, two diminutive fresh- men, paced the attack with 14 points each, and Red Baldwin, playing his first game for the Cardinal and Gray, tallied 12. In a rough game against Drew University the Mules made it two in a row by trouncing the New jersey five, 45-16. Baldwin's 15 was the biggest total in the winner's column, but everybody played as julian emptied the bench. First big test of the year was against Princeton University, and the locals won easily, 53-27. This time Oscar Baldwin had 16 points. Playing at State College, the Mules had a close call, finally grasping victory from the tall Penn State quintet by a one-point margin, 37-36, in an overtime encounter. Baldwin tallied 16 and Gillen 10. State led most of the way and the score was tied 30 all at the end of the regulation time. After two quick Lion goals, ,Berg dumped the seven points into the hoop that sewed up the game. The College's well-balanced machine chalked up its fifth consecutive victory by crushing Lehigh, 57-25. Johnny Bird racked up 12 tallies for scoring honors, and the whole squad played a part in the win. For the second time in the young season the Cardinal and Gray dribblers humbled Princeton, this time, 46-40, at the losers' Muhlenberg's top conquest of the 1945-46 season was a 62-45 triumph over Navy, who previously had lost only one game to North Carolina and that by one point.

Harry Donovan C211 is in the foreground. Bottom, Action under the backboard. U491 court. It was Dick Whiting's 13 points, including seven for nine at the foul line, that led the way. In beating St. Francis College, 56-18, in Madison Square Garden the Mules definitely stamped themselves as being among the hard-wood elite of the East. Baldwin tabbed 15 points that night, Jim Doran 13, and Gillen 10, as the Terriers were simply outclassed all the way. Muhlenberg's defensive prowess was one of the most outstanding exhibitions seen in the Garden all year. In a thrilling game at Rockne Hall the fighting Allentown five grabbed a 34-33 thriller from Columbia University. Dick Whiting paced the winners with 14 points. 'Berg led at half time, 19-16, and fought stubbornly to hold this lead for the rest of the game. Last game of the old year saw the Mules upset the University of Pennsylvania in a beautifully played game at Convention Hall. Dick Whiting's 18 points, most of them coming on long set-shots, helped as the unbeaten Mules rolled to a 42-38 triumph. Although decidedly off form, the team still packed enough wallop to trip Swarthmore College on January 3 to make it ten straight victories. Doran's 10 points were high in the 38-23 scoring duel. The Wildcats of Villanova attempted to stop the high-fiying Mules by freezing the ball for three-quarters of the game, but the locals won, 32-20, in a low scoring match. Doran's 10 points once again made him leading scorer for the evening, and the Philadelphians set some sort of a record by failing to score for twenty-two consecutive minutes. The season's first set-back came at the hands of a rugged Temple team by a 58-47 count. The Owls were simply too big and dominated play under the back- boards. Both Baldwin and Doran got 12 points. Undaunted, however, the Mules began another victory chain. Franklin and Marshall was humbled 62-33, as no fewer than three men, O'Brien, Thiesen, and Baldwin broke in the two-figure scoring column. Swarthmore was beaten on its own court, 46-33, Red Baldwin making 25 points. A big 19-4 lead helped the Julian men take the Philadelphia Marine Corps live into camp, 46-40. Two more easy victories were registered against Villanova and Lehigh by scores of 46-22 and 53-26. In both cases Muhlenberg started fast and was never headed. Once again a highly touted Albright team came to Allentown undefeated, and once again the Lions returned to Reading badly outplayed and beaten. This year the score was 59-34, and Red Baldwin piled up 20 points, while Albright's six-foot nine-inch "Lanky" Landis was held to three tallies. At right are six stars of the 1945-46 team.

In another well- played game the Cardinal and Gray, playing at home, turned back the University of Pennsylvania, 40-35. Proving that they could win when the chips were down, the Mules defeated a tough Columbia team in New York, 47-44, in an extra period. Baldwin, once again, was the offensive star, this time he had 23 counters. In their next game the locals came within a hair's breath of upsetting Navy on its own court. Though 'Berg led at half-time, 21-11, Navy's indoor football tactics and Doran's loss on fouls, won the game for the Midshipmen, 40-32. Albright, aided by some ragged officiating, squeezed out a 43-40 win over the Allentown five in the next game. Baldwin, again, stole scoring honors with 19. Ending the regular season in a blaze of glory, the Mules topped a hard-pressing Philadelphia Coast Guard team, 48-43, and spilled Franklin and Marshall once more, 54-41 to compile a record of 23 wins in 26 tries. To Warm up for their second straight Tournament game the 'Berg quintet played the tough Philadelphia Naval Hospital outfit, winning 36-35 on Dick Whit- ing's last minute foul shot. Then came the thrilling battle with St. John's favored hve, with its excitement right down to the last second, when a Muhlenberg shot rolled 'round the rim. dropped out of the shaking basket, and gave the New Yorkers a 34-33 decision.

Baldwin and Jimmy Doran, the later captain of the quintet, were used to form a nucleus for the greatest Muhlen- berg team in history. Lee Coker, serving as an assistant to Julian because he liked basketball, agreed to take up the coaching reigns until a full-time coach could be appointed in those days of uncertainties. The 1945-1946 season had all the excitement that could be possibly wrapped into one schedule of 25 games. The scintillating crew won 22 games and corralled their third invitation tournament bid in succession. Among the Muhlenberg victims were Navy, Valparaiso and Pennsylvania. But, besides knocking off the basketball powers, the 'Berg civilians were spilled twice by Lafayette, one a 59-58 overtime thriller for the Middle Atlantic Conference cham- pionship. On March 16, 1946, a tired and weary Muhlenberg team went on to outfox and outplay Syracuse, 47 to 41, in the first round elimination in the National Invi- tational Tournament at Madison Square Garden. Rhode Island, the fastest team in the country, defeated Muhlenberg in the semi-final, 59 to 49, and Muhlenberg closed out the season by losing 65 to 40 to West Virginia. CIVILIAN TEAM IN 1945-46 Three days before the tournament opened, Muhlenberg's Harry Donovan was bestowed with three honors within a 24-hour period from all sections. He was chosen as one of the best five players to appear in Madison Square Garden in the regulation season. The Bogota, N. J., athlete nosed out Red Baldwin for the most valuable player award in the Middle Atlantic Collegiate Conference tournament in Bethlehem. The 19-year-old freshman was selected to play on the All-East team in the New York Herald-Tribune Fresh Air fund game against the All-West stars. To top prior awards, Donovan was chosen at the close of the season to be honorary captain on the Associated Press All-Pennsylvania team. Baldwin lost by one vote margin to Jimmy Joyce of Temple University for a first team berth on the same squad, and jimmy Doran, the steady, dependable captain, earned a third-team position. Eddie Donovan, brother of Harry Donovan, was the standout defensive per- former throughout the season. Baldwin starred in offensive cleverness and faking. These two were responsible for sending Muhlenberg into the semi-finals in the Invitation Tournament. Top picture presents the '45-'46 squad.

As the season drew to a close, Athletic Director Gurney Afflerbach announced that Bud Barker had been named Muhlenberg basketball coach. Barker succeeds Lee Coker, the Allentown businessman who coached because he liked basketball and sent Muhlenberg's bunting rising to the greatest height in inter-collegiate compe- tition, and set the goal for future coaches and teams from this College to duplicate or surpass. TWENTY-THREE WINS DURING SEASON The curtain was raised on the 1945-46 season on November 28 at Princeton with an overwhelming 62-36 triumph over the Tigers. Wfith this auspicious be- ginning the 'Berg cage crew began what was destined to be the greatest season in the history of the College. Only for the first few minutes when they piled up an 8-0 lead were the New jersey boys in the game, as Red Baldwin with 14 points, Harry Donovan with 12, and guard Jim Doran with 13 led the barrage of baskets. The Mules, displaying exceptionally fine footwork and accurate shooting for so early in the season, were coached by Lee Coker, who had assisted Doggie julian in previous years, and Floyd Schwartzwalder, new head of the Physical -Education Department. First home encounter of the year at Rockne Hall pitted a scrappy LaSalle College five against the local team. After an evenly contested first half, the Muhlen- berg basketeers shifted into high gear and rolled to a 51-33 victory. Both starting forwards, Harry Donovan and Red Baldwin, had 10 points to pace the attack, while Captain Bob Walters of the Explorers also dumped in five field goals. Ex-Muhlenberg star Jack Hewson was the whole show with 17 points as the Temple Owls topped Muhlenberg 47-53 in the season's opener at Philadelphia's Convention Hall. The six-foot six-inch Cherry and Wfhite Navy trainee was the difference in the two clubs as Muhlenberg's scoring attack stalled against the bigger Temple five. The Donovan brothers, Harry with 10 and Eddie with 9 points, were the bright spots in the picture for the Allentonians. The final game of the old year saw the Mules return to their winning ways Jim Doran scrambles after the ball, left, and Red Baldwin jumps against Navy. Number 19 for Navy is Dick Duden, All-American footballer. Baldwin again and Combs, in the air, during the Bucknell game. The Bisons were beaten here, 63-45.

Joe Podany's long screamers from midcourt also were important in the win. Noticeably stale after the Christmas lay-off, the Cardinal and Gray quintet was pressed to win its first game in 1946, played at home against Princeton, who had been soundly trounced in the season's curtain-raiser. Final score was 46-56, but the Tigers knotted the score four times throughout the evening, as late as the third quarter. Baldwin's 14 and Podany's 10 were the highest totals in the locals' scoring parade. Triumph number six was by a 47-58 score over Penn State, but Muhlenberg was pressed all the way. The tall rangy visitors set a fast pace, and Muhlenbergis superiority exerted itself only in the final period. High scorers: Red Baldwin, 15, Harry Donovan, 15. A new scoring star was revealed as the Mules were forced to come from behind to defeat a fighting Franklin and Marshall team, 56-46, at Lancaster. Van Combs, hook shot artist, hung up six baskets and five from the free-throw line for 17 points. Harry Donovan had 14, and Jim Doran's defensive play was outstanding. Before an absolutely jammed-to-capacity house at Rockne Hall, the Long Island University Blackbirds, long a nationally known hard-wood power, were beaten by Muhlenberg, 46-55, in a rough contest. The big crowd went wild as the locals jumped to a quick 9-1 lead on shots by Harry Donovan and Combs and then held that lead through the encounter. Donovan and Combs were the big scorers of the evening with 14 and 15 points respectively. jackie Goldsmith, set-shot ace for the visitors, was held to 10 points by the splendid guarding of Leo Martini and Al Rubbert. By scoring twenty-four points in a ten-minute span of the third period, the Cardinal and Gray netted victory eight fin nine startsj in trouncing Lafayette 59-48. The Kentucky Kid, Van Combs, was the evening's scoring star with 21 points, jim Doran had 15. Another Middle Atlantic League contest played at Rockne Hall found 'Berg easily topping Bucknell, 65-45. The varsity played only half the game, but Red Baldwin racked up 25 big counters and Harry Donovan tabbed 17. Thereafter the subs took over. One of the closest games of the year was the 50-47 win against the University of Pennsylvania at Rockne Hall. The Quakers, with more than 5000 fans looking on, played some of their best ball of the year, and the victory wasn't clinched until Van Combs made a field goal with just 50 seconds to go. Red Baldwin totaled 17 points, and Harry Donovan was right on his heels with 15 more. Tommy Upton's long shots kept Penn in the game. Al Rubbert lights for the ball on the floor as Combs C17J and Ed Donovan C155 look on. Valparaiso players in the foreground are Meadows and Belsawski, two ace guards.

When, the next Wednesday, the team again crushed the hapless Engineers by a 73-37 count, weary statisticians rushed for the adding machines to total up the carnage. Against Lehigh in the first game no fewer than four of the smooth working Allentown quintet reached the double column in scoring: Combs, 21, Baldwin, 13, Ed Donovan, 12, brother,Harry, 11, and substitute Dick Hale, 10. In the Saturday night game the 87-point total set a new team record for Rockne Hall and the 27 points tallied by both Baldwin and Harry Donovan also smashed the individual scoring record. Totals for the second Lehigh game showed H. Donovan with 21, Combs with 15, and Doran with 11. Next win was an uncomfortably close 45-39 triumph in an up-hill battle with the Bucknell Bisons at their tricky Lewisburg court. It was even-stephen from the court, each team sinking 16 field goals, but from the charity line 'Berg dropped 9 out of 11, and that accuracy made the difference. Scoring honors, as usual, went to Baldwin Q12 pointsj and Harry Donovan f10j. Playing superb ball, perhaps their best of the year, the Allentown collegians tripped a good Gettysburg team by the decisive score of 67 to 45 on the Bullets home court. Gettysburg fans were long and loud in their admiration of the smooth accurate attack of the Cardinal and Gray, which worked to perfection that night. Van Combs from a forward spot piled up 23 points, guard Harry Donovan had 17, and veteran center Jim Doran added 10. Fresh from a triumph over Holy Cross at Boston, the skyscraping giants of Valparaiso University invaded Rockne Hall before a capacity crowd, that Howed into every possible inch of space. The Indiana outfit, booked as the tallest team in basketball, was humbled by a 61-55 score. Featuring a squad loaded with six-nine giants, the visitors led 32-31, when Podany's interception, Combs goal, and three quick buckets, two by Podany and one by Baldwin, iced the game. Combs got 16 points on beautiful hook shots, and Harry Donovan had 13. The victory was a costly one, however, as Red Baldwin crashed through a door, cutting his wrist badly. Playing without "Baldy", the Mules lost a 49-47 heart-breaker to Lafayette on the Eastonians court. Although Combs dumped 13 counters through and Ed Dono- van had 11, Marty Zippel's 15 points for Bill Anderson's well-drilled squad took scoring honors. Showing the qualities of a great ball club, however, the Mules in the next game rode to their greatest triumph of the year by brushing aside highly regarded Navy to the tune of 62 to 45. The locals piled up a 12-2 lead before the dazed midshipmen Joe Podany drives in for a field goal, upper left. At right, Muhlenberg and Villanova players await a rebound. The Mules won, 67-46.

There were three big scorers: Harry Donovan with 20 points, Van Combs with 15, and Red Baldwin with 10. In a thorough trouncing of the Villanova Wildcats, the final score of Muhlen- berg's 18th win was 67-46. Muhlenberg started slowly, registering only three field goals in the initial canto, but outside of Lord's set-shots the had 21 points, the Philadelphians failed to do much. A big 13-0 lead over the Hawks of St. Joseph's College enabled the Mules to coast to a 58-49 triumph. The game was played at home and after the fast start the local team took things easy. Harry Donovan had 16, Combs 15, and Doran 10. In the last home game of the season Gettysburg was beaten by a 56-34 count. It was win number 21 in 25 games and assured the Cardinal and Gray of a tie for first place in the Middle Atlantic Conference. Muhlenberg had a decidedly off night, but even so was entirely too strong for the Bullets. At the send of the third period it was 45-25, and the subs took over completely. Combs f16j, Baldwin f15j, and Donovan QIOJ led the scoring. Final game of the regular season was a set-to with St. Francis College in Madison Square Garden. Admittedly a schedule-maker,s mistake, the contest saw the Mules soundly thrash their New York opponent, 70-50. The dazzling attack of the Allentonians and their sterling defensive play practically clinched a berth in post-season play-offs. Also, the game was a personal triumph for Muhlenberg's whirling-dervish guard, Harry, the Hurricane, Donovan, who threw up nine Held goals from all angles of the floor and added six more charity tosses to total 24 points. In addition, he was all over the hard-wood on defense and gave one of the best solo performances seen during the season in Gotham. Van Combs racked up 19 points, for another of the highest individual totals in the Garden for the year. The Middle Atlantic play-offs, held in Lehighls Grace Hall were won by Lafayette with an up-set, over-time 59-58 win over ,Berg and a victory over Rutgers, whom they had beaten twice in the regular season. Though trailing most of the way, the fighting Eastonians tied the somewhat ragged Mules in the closing minutes and won in a thrilling extra period. Oscar Baldwin sank 26 points from his pivot spot for individual honors. He added 21 more the next night in a consolation game with outclassed Ursinus, who bowed 67-30. Entering the Garden classic as underdogs against the tall Syracuse University quintet, the Mules once again demonstrated that they played their best ball after a defeat, for they eliminated the Orange 47-41. Oscar Baldwin's 23 points were the big noise, but it was Muhlenberg's deliberate type of play that clinched the win. The over-anxious New Yorkers fouled out two centers trying to stop Baldwin and The 1945-46 Junior Varsity Squad.

Little Ernie Calverley, the 140-pound center of the shot-crazy Rhode Island State five, almost single-handedly defeated Muhlenberg in the semi-final round with 27 points. Baldwin tallied 18, but the final count was 59-49. For the Mules the bottom dropped out of the contest when Ed Donovan left in the third period via the foul route. In the final consolation game, the Cardinal and Gray, now Worn out by their long schedule, lost to a sharpshooting West Virginia team, 65-40. Kentucky by virtue of a one-point Win over Rhode Island took first honors, and the Muhlenberg quintet, greatest in the College's history, returned home to a rousing reception. .

Morgan Schaeffer, who was an outstanding player on successful Girard College teams, was selected to coach the first soccer squad in the history of the school. The Mules presented a very impressive record with their nine- game schedule which included such outstanding teams as Penn State, Swarthmore, and Stevens Institute. 'Berg conceded the first two games of the season to Swarthmore and Prince- ton by single goals. However, the remaining games proved to be victories for the Mules with the exception of one tie with Penn State. ' The Marine members and their respective positions on the team were: Turner Hastings, forward, Daniel Simon, half-back, Herb Morgan, full-back, Irving Snyder, full-back, Ed Holdredge, forward, James Svec, forward, Don Mable, forward, joe Murray, half-back, James Schaeffer, half-back, and james Downey, lineman. The Navy representatives were: Jack Kistenmacher, center-forward, Hank Trostle, goalie, Francis Schrader, half-back, Stan Houston, forward, James Chorlton, half-back, Ed Styles, forward, Robert Homer, forward, Ernest Triemer, full-back, Charles Graef, full-back, Paul Slifer, half-back, jim Glaab, forward, Dan Webster, forward, and M. Everhart, half-back. There wasn't a single Navy or Marine member of the successful 1943 soccer team present to begin practice with the 1944 squad. This season's record shows a single win over Ursinus and seven defeats suffered at the hands of such teams as Navy, Temple, Penn State, and Princeton. The new contingent of Navy and Marine trainees provided a reservoir of soccer material. Navy members representing Muhlenberg on the 1944 squad were: Herbert Kum- mel, forward, John Beard, forward, Art Kirstein, forward, Harry Zanks, forward, Chancey Paxson, forward, George Rhoads, halfback, Robert Campbell, forward, Louis Cioffi, forward, Bill Schmidt, halfback, Art Silverstein, half-back, Dominic Sciamanda, forward, Don Boyer, forward, Bernard Richert, half-back, Fred Pauley, forward, Bill Palmer, goalie, Robert Phillips, full-back, Bill Deakman, half-back, Ronald Shore, forward, and Tom Carey, half-back. The Marine members were: jim Harron, full-back, Paul Hazleton, full-back, Howell Mount, half-back, Bill Frye, goalie, and Herbert Peck, half-back. The four civilians to play were: Harry Rank, forward, Joe Bretz, half-back, Sandy Ersner, forward, and Robert Krosner, half-back.

Because of Coach Morgan Schaeffer's inability to resume his coaching activities, the responsibility for the 1945 'lMule" soccer team was placed in the hands of Charles "Chili" Altemose, who simultaneously played with the Philadelphia Nationals and coached the "Mules". The squad was certainly inexperienced but definitely showed a lighting spirit. Competing against some of the top soccer talent in the east, the Cardinal and Gray Booters compiled a two and five record against such schools as Swarthmore, Lehigh, Princeton, Penn State, Temple, and Navy. Most of the squad members were playing the sport for the first time, and since many of these men are returning to college this year the eight-match schedule for 1946 should find the Mules compiling a better record. Co-captains for the '45 soccer team abo-ue, are jack Kistenmacher, left, of Philadelphia, and Hank Trostle of Reading. In the basketball shot below, Lafayette's Semko CGD, Krasner CSD, Jordan CIZJ, and Milne C9j watch as Red Baldwin sinks another from his favorite pivot spot. He had 26 points in this play-off game. 1:1693 Baseball ASEBALL at Muhlenberg was, perhaps, the hardest hit of all sports on the campus during the war, but never once did the Athletic Department decide to give up. Though war-time baseball teams had poor records statistically, the spirit on the squads was that which .always is typical of a Muhlenberg team. In 1943, the last year of regular peacetime baseball at the College, Doggie Julian's Mule nine, with many students playing their last season of civilian ball, came through the season with a record of six wins and five losses. Most outstanding and most remembered games were the Lafayette and Penn State triumphs, because of the superb hurling of the two pitching stars of the year, Stone and Jakobowski. Stone, an all-around athlete at 'Berg, hurled a one hit, 1 to 0 win over the Leopards of Lafayette, "Jake" pitched an equally good game against State, giving them but two hits and winning, 2 to 1. This was a heavy hitting club and featured such slug- gers as jim Crampsey and George Bibighaus. The Marine and Navy units supplied all the material for the 1944 team, the last coached by Doggie julian. The squad headlined such stars as Mark, Baietti, Davis, and McGraw. Mark and Baietti shouldered the brunt of the hurling duties, while Davis and Schroeder led the hitters, Davis clouted three home runs. The high spot of the season was the 23 to 3 beating administered to Lafayette. When the Spring of 1945 rolled around, baseball was at a low ebb. Gurney Afflerbach didn't know whether to schedule games or not, as there was no coach and all the available material was quite green. However, enthusiasm from those who wished to play and the consent of an old Mule grad, "Horsey" Heist, to coach, were enough to convince the Athletic Department, and eleven games were played. Although quite Weak at bat and on the field, the team did manage to pull through with two wins for the season. "Red" Baldwin's pitching and hitting plus "Chuck" Rinck's victory over Ursinus, 2-1, were the season's bright Spots. "Dutch" Rhoads, sensational infielder and hitter, was lost to the team half way through the season due to injuries. The "Mules" under the guidance of "Hossie" Lough, won five games and lost seven games during the 1946 season. Outstanding victories were gained against Lehigh, swamped 15-4, and "Lafayette," who bowed to the "Mules" 6-2. All indi- cations point to a better 1947 "Berg" nine. There should be a number of 1946 vete- rans ready to display their talent on the diamond for the next season. The upper picture shows the 1943 Muhlenberg baseball team. Coach: "Doggie" Julian.

There should be a number of 1946 vete- rans ready to display their talent on the diamond for the next season. The upper picture shows the 1943 Muhlenberg baseball team. Coach: "Doggie" julian.

The school newspaper, dramatics, choir and band, the year- book, pre-professional clubs, and fraternity life have all grown until they are an indispensable addition to a college education. In many cases, they have proven as important as class-room work. The effect of the war on such activities was much as expected, but also, sur- prisingly enough, the way in which many activities weathered the war years was remarkable. Naturally, with fewer students and less time for non-essentials some organizations disappeared. The Navy programs, with their strict allotments of time, discouraged excessive participation on the part of trainees. Clubs like the Premedical Society, the john Marshall Prelaw Club, and the Muhlenberg Business Association vanished. Other groups, however, more than made up for these temporary halts in student activity. The Muhlenberg Weekly, college paper, maintained publication during all these semesters, though many nights the staff-or rather, a few editors-labored till long after midnight to make sure there would be an issue that week. The Mask and Dagger Club kept pace with acceleration by presenting three shows a year in- stead of two. In the midst of the war years the Muhlenberg Christian Association was revitalized. I Fraternities were hampered by the war but continued at Muhlenberg. The Lambda Chi Alpha house was used as an infirmary for trainees and students. The Phi Kappa Tau house became for a time an upper classman dormitory, while the Alpha Tau Omega house was the freshman dormitory. Regardless of such handicaps, fraternity life kept on. Thus, the traditional activities continued on the College campus. Meanwhile, the Muhlenberg men who might have been members of the Prelegal Club or the Business Association were lighting on the four corners of the globe. Their activities took place over Berlin, in Normandy, and at Tarawa. In recognition of such service by Muhlenberg men, and in recognition of the College's splendid record in training men for the armed forces and invaluable services during the war period, the govern- ment named one of its Victory ships after the College. The U.S.S. Muhlenberg Victory is fitting recognition by the nation of Muhlenberg's war record. Equipped in part by the College, the ship, shown on the opposite page at launching ceremonies, salutes Muhlenberg College and the spirit of General John Peter Gabriel Muhlenberg. The U.S.S. Muhlenberg Victory, the governments salute to the College's splendid war service record, awaits the completion of launching ceremonies at the Bethlehem-Fairfield ship- yards in Baltimore. 51753 The Luunohing of the S. S. Muhlenberg Victory ALUTING the tremendous part that American educational institutions played in winning the war, the United States government named a series of Victory ships after various colleges. One of these schools so honored was Muhlenberg College. Reasons for this action are obvious: the splendid record of the College in training men for the armed forces during the V-5 and V-12 programs on the campus, in honor of the more than two thousand alumni of the College who were in the service of their country, and the traditional spirit of service in war and peace that stems from the earliest days of the Muhlenberg family. The Victory ship, which was designed by the Maritine Commission, represented an improvement on the Liberty ship. Boasting a speed of fifteen knots or more, the Victory ships were 10,800 deadweight tons, had a length of 445 feet and a beam of 62 feet. Improvements in design, based on war-time experience, gave these Victory ships finer hull lines, more powerful engines, and greater speed than the earlier Liberty ship. Launching ceremonies took place on july 12, 1945, in Baltimore, Maryland. The Muhlenberg Victory was built at the Bethlehem-Fairfield shipyards there and represented the seventy-sixth Victory ship to go down the ways of these yards during the war. Twenty-five of these vessels were named in honor of colleges. Al- though war-time conditions made large scale representation at the event impossible, a group of college officials, plus alumni from the Washington-Baltimore area, viewed the proceedings. The powerful, new ship, which within a few weeks was carrying needed cargoes overseas and returning American servicemen to this country, was christened by Mrs. Levering Tyson, wife of the College President and first lady of the campus. At 3:47 on that July afternoon the traditional bottle of champagne was broken over the vessel's bow, and the S. S. Muhlenberg Victory slid gracefully into the Patapsco River, within sight of the Chesapeake Bay. Actual ceremonies at the launching were brief. The keel of the ship had been laid May 25, and immediately after the launching of the Muhlenberg Victory work- men were busy on the next victory ship. As the oiiicial party gathered for the event, Pictured at upper left, just before the launching ceremonies, are Ensign David Tyson, Mrs. Levering Tyson, who christened the ship, and President Tyson of Muhlenberg. At right, Mrs. Tyson starts the ship down the ways in the traditional manner.

The button that sent the boat down the ways was pressed by Ensign David Otto Tyson, son of the College's President. Ensign Tyson had been commissioned just a week before and was the second of Dr. Tyson's sons to enter the Navy. In addition to the Tysons, the offlcial party on the launching platform included Dr. and Mrs. Robert C. Horn, Dr. and Mrs. William A. Hausman and James Bender, representing the Board of Trustees, Mr. and Mrs. Walter Reisner, repre- senting alumnig Mr. and Mrs. Victor R. Schmidt, representing the city of Allentown, and James Gross, the delegate of the student body. Various Navy personnel and members of the College family were also present. The ship was given various gifts by the College. A water color painting by Mrs. Helen Horn, wife of the Dean, was hung on board the ship. The picture depicted General John Peter Gabriel Muhlenberg as he stood in the pulpit of his Woodstock, Virginia, church and took off his clerical gown to recruit the group he led in the Revolutionary War. Also given to the ship were seven photographs, depicting the campus and local activities. These were hung in the wardroom. A library, athletic equipment, and games were given by the College and alumni. After being completely fitted, the S. S. Muhlenberg Victory was given her trial runs in August. These rigid tests the ship passed with unqualified approval. Re- turning to her berth at the shipyards, the Muhlenberg Victory carried at her mast the traditional broom-symbol that "the ship sweeps clean." Said Captain Ness, veteran trial run skipper of the yards: "We can't find a single bug. She's a trim ship, ready for anything." Guests on this trial run included members of the College family. Following her acceptance, the S. S. Muhlenberg Victory began her career of nautical service, saluting well the college for which she was named. Dean Robert C. Horn, Dr. and Mrs. Tyson, and J. M. VC'illis of the shipyard admire a pin Mrs. Tyson received after the launching, above. In the lower picture, Victor R. Schmidt, Walter L. Reisner '15, Mrs. Tyson, and james Gross, representative of the student body, pose at the beginning of the ceremonies. , 51771 The Mask and Dagger Club NE of the campus organizations which remained most active during the war was the Mask and Dagger Club, the College's dramatic club. Throughout the period Mr. Andrew Erskine, of the English Department, continued to serve as di- rector, and it was due to his persistent efforts that the club was able to carry on its activities. The organization itself is composed of students who have taken an active part in putting on several plays. The Mask and Dagger Club emanated from the original campus drama group, the Cue and Quill, and was founded in 1931. Prior to the war the Mask and Dagger presented one full-length feature production each term. When under the accelerated program there were three semesters to the year, the Club stepped up its production schedule, continuing to give a play every term. This meant three plays in a calendar year. In addition, Club members gave several one- act plays for assembly programs. Q In the Spring of 1943 the group presented "Queen's Husband", and this was followed in the Fall with "The Poor of New York". The play in the Winter term was "Death Takes a Holiday". "Volpone', was given in the Spring of 1944, and this was followed by "Journey's End". Then came "Macbeth" in the Winter, '45 semester, and "Squaring the Circle" in the Spring. The Fall production in 1945 was "East Lynne". "Rope" was the next play offered in the Winter term. The Spring production in 1946 was "Shadow and Substance". OFFICERS: President, W.

I 2 I 1 4 r Y "QUEEN'S HUSBAND" The Mask and Dagger presentation for the Spring term in 1943 was "Queen's Husband", by Robert Sherwood. The play was a comedy and as such formed some- what of a contrast to the previous Club production, "Romeo and Juliet", which had been given in the Fall. Bob Bechtel was seen as the pint-sized king who in the course of the plot proved himself to be a real king. As the villain, a Mussolini-like char- acter, Matthew Kerestes made the most of his part. "THE POOR OF NEIV YORK" For its next production the Mask and Dagger Club turned to the lield of melo- drama and offered a gripping and hilarious version of Dion Bouccicault's "The Poor of New'York". An all male cast presented the entire show, playing even the female parts. I Donald Lehrkinder was featured in the part of the second villain who reformed. The female lead was played very capably by David Koenitzer, who was attired in a beautiful, long, blond wig. Matt Kerestes once again appeared as a villain. Perhaps the most-remembered moment in the show was the famous snow scene when the stage of the College Little Theatre was converted into a raging blizzard with some of the largest snow Hakes ever seen. "DEATH TAKES A HOLIDAY" The Winter semester play in 1944 was "Death Takes a Holiday", translated by Ferriss from the original Italian play of Cassella. Carol Peart, probably the greatest actress ever to appear at Cedar Crest, made her final appearance on the Muhlenberg stage in the female lead. She had previously been seen as Juliet in the Club's last Shakespearean production. Bob Bechtel was the male lead in the drama, and Lehrkinder and Kerestes, who previously had been cast as villains, were this time cast as more sympathetic char- acters. Upper left corner scene is from "Death Takes a Holiday". At top right is a scene from "Journey's End", brilliant English anti-war play. The all-male cast is lined up for a curtain call in the middle panel. Below, the cast for Shakespeare's "Macbeth" also takes an encore bow. 51313 "VOLPONE" An old play by the late sixteenth century master, Ben Jonson, was given by the Mask and Dagger Club for its Spring production in 1944. The play, "Volpone", was given in a modernized version, and it marked a notable contrast from the series of more recent productions that the organization had been giving. "Volpone" also marked the first appearance on the Muhlenberg boards of Bob Bosch, a V-12 stu- dent, who had previously worked behind stage. "fOURNEY'S END" The most outstanding play put on during the war years was Robert Sherriff's "J0urney's End", seen in the Fall of 1944. The anti-war play, written after the first World War, features an all male cast. Four students stationed at Muhlenberg in the V-12 training program had lead- ing roles. They were Richard Lashley, Bill Palmer, Bob Bosch, and Fred Otto, the latter cast as the cowardly and neurotic oilicer in the front line trenches. George Eichorn, a civilian freshman, also starred in his role. "MACBETH" William Shakespeare's perennially popular "Macbeth" was given by the Club in the Winter of 1945. With its huge cast, lavish costuming, and vast field of action, the play was one of the most ambitious undertakings of the Club throughout the war-time period. Bill Palmer appeared as Macbeth, even though in a last minute rehearsal of the dueling scene he almost lost the sight of one eye. Mike Rogers was outstanding as the drunken Porter. Fred Snyder and Bob Velte, also V-12 students, appeared to advantage, Velte portraying Banquo. Harry Leontakis, a civilian, took the part of Macduff excellently. The upper picture taken during the Mask and Dagger production of Shakespeare's "Mac- beth" shows Lady Macbeth CMary Lou Schlechterj fainting. In the middle picture, the cast of 'Squaring the Circle" takes a bow. Presented in the March '45 term, "Squaring the Circle" was a. Russian comedy. A typical scene is shown below. ' fiszj 2 5 1 5 4 E 1 I 3 I 1 1 w 1 USQUARING THE CIRCLE" 1 Shifting to a foreign play for the Spring semester in 1945 the Mask and Dagger Club gave a performance of a Russian comedy, "Squaring the Circle". The author was Kaitaiev, and the plot concerns Moscow immediately after the Revolution of 1917. The dreary living conditions, the glowing promises of the revolt, and an apartment-sharing plan all come in for their share of kidding in the course of the play. A poet whose enthusiasm surpassed his ability and a mute boy with a unique talent for causing confusion added to the fun. Marshall Rogers, V-12 trainee, was seen as the poet, and John Rogers fno relation, appeared as the male lead. Bob Velte and Harry Leontakis had leading roles, and Luther Wilson, bundled up in overcoats and hats so as to be almost unrecognizable, stole the show even though he never said a word. "EAS T LYN N E" For the Fall production of 1945 the Mask and Dagger Club chose another old-time melodrama with males once again taking all the parts. "East Lynne", one of the most famous and sentimental novels of all times, written by Mrs. Henry Wood, was the play, and the Muhlenberg actors managed to ring an unequalled number of laughs out of the situations. John Rogers, complete with handlebar moustache, was the villain and was appropriately booed and hissed by the large audiences which entered enthusiastically into the spirit of the production. jack Schnaidt, a Naval trainee, was cast as the hero, and towering a good foot above him was the demure heroine, played by jack Reumann, who dropped his previous assignments on the Clubls business staff to appear behind the footlights. Gene King, another sailor, played the vamp with the proper seductiveness. Two hundred-pound Phil Mitterling was cast as Little Willie, who wasted away and finally went to Heaven. Luther Wilson was again a hit in the mute part of Sir Francis Levison, jr. "Do not throw hurtful objects at the performers, remember, they are trying their best!" read the programs as the Club presented an old-time melodrama, "East Lynne" in October of 1945. The cast is lined up below, while above, Lady Isabel Uack Reumannj laments as Little Willie CPhil Mitterlingj wastes away and finally dies, going to Heaven. Gene King and jack Schnaidt look on, astonished. fissjp "ROPE"' "Rope", a mystery story by Patrick Hamilton, author of "Angel Street", was the play given during the Winter, 1946, semester by the Mask and Dagger Club. The plot, set in London, deals with a bold and daring murderer, whose cold-blooded calm enables him to commit a perfect crime. He is foiled in the end, however, by the superior courage and tranquillity of a lame poet, whose sharp wit and dagger- hilted cane are his only weapons. Gerald Rogers, seen in "East Lynne", was the murderer, and John Rogers, veteran actor, played the part of Ruppert Cadell, the poet. Bob Kantra was excel- lent in his part, and these three gathered acting honors for the evening. Also seen in the course of action were James Gross, as a titled Englishman, Carter Merbreier, as a one-time athletic hero, and Bob Fretz, the butler without whom no British play is complete. "SHADOW AND SUBSTANCE! A comedy-drama with an Irish setting was the Club's offering in the Spring semester of 1946. The play, "Shadow and Substance", was authored by Paul Vincent Carroll. Taking place in a small Irish town, the plot deals with the struggle of the parish priest and the village schoolmaster, who has anonymously written a contro- versial book. The book is banned by the priest, and the controversy is not settled until disaster has struck the little village. Harold Helfrich, a former Mask and Dagger actor, appeared as the school- master, his first role since being separated from Army service. Gerald Rogers ap- peared as the Canon, and his two parish priests were played by John Walters and George Bannon. Ernest Wallander was good in his role of a townsman. Across the top of the opposite page is a scene from the Mask and Dagger thriller, "Ropel'. The murder mystery was presented during the November, 1946 semester. Climax is the moment in middle panel, left. A scene from "Shadow and Substancef' prize-winning Irish comedy-drama, and a picture of the entire cast, bottom, represent the March, 1946 term presentation. 1:1861 , ,. Q 5 :L 1 E .

The main difficulty was experienced in retaining a capable, trained staff. Changes occurred almost daily and many weeks the editors were faced with putting out the entire paper themselves. However, with few exceptions, the Weekly came out every week, something of which 'Berg might well be proud. The Weekly is put out entirely by the students and is owned by them. Mem- bership is open to all students. It furnishes complete courage of all campus activities, club news, and sports events and a medium of expression for student opinion. Harry Nicholas was Editor-in-Chief when the Navy unit arrived on campus, and he continued in this position until january 21, 1944, when Louis E. Steinbach took over the job. Steinbach had been Managing Editor. Several trainees assumed the Editor's post during the war. Bob Bosch became Editor with the March 31 issue in 1944. The next Editor was Bill Palmer, and these two men saw the paper through its darkest days. Ted Jentsch, a civilian, was Editor for a semester. Marshall Rogers, another Navy man, achieved the distinction of editing the Weekly for the shortest period in history, one issue, when he was transferred shortly after being elected to the post. For two semesters, from july, 1945, until February, 1946, Phil Mitterling edited the Weekly. He was followed by John Rogers, who served for one semester. Elected as Co-editors for the year of 1946-47 were Mike Rogers, who returned to.Muhlenberg as a civilian, and jack Reumann.

This is the first Ciarla published since 1943, when the war made it impossible for any more books to be published. We have traced the story of events from the last issue of the Ciarla until the Spring of 1946. Throughout the war extra-curricular activities were curtailed because of heavier and accelerated schedules. Although faced with all types of obstacles, a limited staff assembled and diligently started the task of assembling this year's Cizzrla. The task of publishing the Ciarla is ordinarily in the hands of the Junior Class. However, since in the Fall of 1945 no classes were organized, the Student Council began the task by electing john Reumann as Editor and James Gross Business Manager. A small but active staff was gathered, and the task of telling what had taken place in the last three years began. Naturally, no staff members of the last Ciarla were on campus, and pictures and material had to be collected from almost un- numbered sources. In order to tell the complete story of the Navy on the campus and to include Muhlenberg's first peace-time commencement in live years, the publication date was extended until the late Fall of 1946. Thus the 1946 Ciarla has attempted to record three crucial years at Muhlenberg.

"Wifi " Q Muhlenberg Christiun Associution HE Muhlenberg Christian Association, which is an outgrowth of the Y. M. C. A., has as its purpose the fostering of high Christian principles among students. Every Muhlenberg student is a member, but the activities are directed by a cabinet composed of members of the various classes. The organization became inactive during the early war period, but it was revived in July 1944 under the leadership of Luther Wilson, John Schwalm, and Edwin Bastian. Some of the activities of the organization include weekly devotional meetings. Highlights of these gatherings were speakers such as Dr. Bertha Paulssen, the Rev. Earl S. Erb, and members of the Fa.culty. A Lenten devotional series was conducted by members of the religious department. Social functions included dances and doggie roasts. Important service activities of the organization include the distribution of religious literature, and the render- ing of usher service, for special college functions. These activities had as their purpose the encouragement of better relations among students. PERSONNEL: President, Alfred Erb, Vice-President, Harry Billow, Secretary, L. Samuel Krouse, Treasurer, W. Robert Oswald. ADVISERS: The Rev. Russell W. Stine, The Rev. john W. Doberstein. CABINET MEMBERS: Richard Bergman, John Reumann, Paul Gesregan, Ray May, Franklin Sherman, Ora Wooster, Alfred Erb, Harry Billow, L. Samuel Krouse, W. Robert Oswald. Pretheologieul Cluh HE john A. W. Haas Pretbeological Club, composed of ministerial students, was founded in 1935 at Muhlenberg, for the purpose of exerting a constructive influence upon the spiritual life of its members. The organization is fortunate in having a special room for meeting and studying purposes in the Library building. Outstanding speakers have been secured for the meetings among members of the clergy. Panel discussions and debates on religious topics, as well as devotional programs, are some of the other functions. The organization, seeking to acquaint its members with some of the future activities, has conducted field trips. Some of these trips included visits to the Lu- theran Seminary at Philadelphia, Topton Orphans Home, Old Trappe Church, and Philadelphia Publication and Settlement Houses.

Experiencing dif- ficulties in operating under the Student Body Constitution of 1939, the students drew up a wartime constitution, which was in effect until June of '46. Then, last Spring, a revised constitution was drawn up and put into effect. The Student Council assumes direct responsibility for the various general and social activities of the student body. As trustees of student funds, .it makes appro- priations to the various student organizations and receives ,financial reports from them. These, along with reports of the activities of the campus groups, are placed in the Student Council files. Thus it coordinates and oversees all the student activi- ties on the campus. The members composing the Student Council are elected by popular vote. They must be either juniors or seniors. They in turn elect their own offices, pres- ident, secretary, treasurer. OFFICERS: President, George Swedag Secretary-Treasurer, Paul Gesregan. MEMBERS: George Sweda, Paul Gesregan, XV. Robert Oswald, William Hille- gass, Foster Blair, Joseph Podany, Oscar Baldwin, Richard Bergman, Anthony Annecchiarico. Deaf Deutsche ,Verein NE of the most popular and active organizations on the Muhlenberg campus is Der Deutsche Verein, which was organized to promote the love, under- standing, and appreciation of the German language and culture. This club was founded in 1924 under the guidance of Dr. Preston Barba. It has the distinction of being the oldest departmental club on the Muhlenberg campus. It has fostered a better understanding of the rich cultural heritage of the German civilization. There are several unique features concerning the club. One of these interesting notes is that the meetings are conducted in German. These meetings include the singing of songs, the playing of games, and the presentation of German literature. The club has become noted on the campus for its delicious refreshments, which are usually served at every meeting. It was active all during the war.

The Council was organized for the purpose of governing and encouraging debate and oratory on the campus. Its meet- ings are held semi-annually, but it is active throughout the entire school year. The group arranges the debating schedules, plans trips for the debating team, and fosters oratorical activities among the students. The oratorical activities are under the leadership of Dr. John D. M. Brown, who is instructor of public speaking. Oratorical activities include: the Kramer Oratorical Contest for Juniors, the Junior Oratorical Contest, Junior-Senior Oratorical Contest. The war period curtailed activities to some extent. However, members of the debating team participated in various activities of the Lehigh Valley Debating Asso- ciation. The oratorical contests were conducted in spite of the decreased number of participants. An interesting feature of these contests was the interest shown by the Naval trainees on the campus. PERSONNEL: President and Debate Manager, Paul Gesregang Secretary, Ernest Hoh, Advisers, Professor Ephraim Everittg Dr. John D. M. Brown. MEMBERS: William Richards, John Reumann, Philip Mitterling, Paul Gesre- gan, Alfred Erb, Ernest Hoh. Chapel Choir HE Muhlenberg College Chapel Choir was severely hampered during the war not only by lack of material and the rapid turn-over in the student body but also by transportation restrictions. War-time gasoline rationing prevented the usual extensive tours and confined the choir's activities to near-by communities. In spite of all these difficulties, Dr. Harold K. Marks, Director of the Choir since its inception in 1951, managed to keep a group together during all these semesters. The choir at times gave Sunday evening concerts of sacred music at churches in Allentown, Coopersburg, Lansford, Mauch Chunk, Richlantown, and Spinnerstown, all close to the College campus. The Choir also sang at the annual Cedar Crest-Muhlenberg Christmas service, week-day chapel services, and for the Ladies' Auxiliary. The manager during most of the period was James B. Miller. In March, 1946 Bob Kishbaugh became manager, and the Choir, bolstered by many new men, under- took its most ambitious program of the war years. Q Upper picture: The Forensic Council.

Directed by Nelson Graham and Norman Morris, 'Berg Alumni, this show highlighted the activities of the club. The organization was dormant during the war years in spite of the fact that letters continued to be awarded the men who represented 'Berg on the varsity teams. With the advent of the Fall term, the group was re-organized and Joe Podany, basketball star of last season, elected President. Under his leadership the club again assumed its pre-war prominence as one of the campus. One of the oldest organizations on the campus, membership is limited to those men who have earned their varsity letter in intercollegiate sports. "Time Out," the big M Club show, was the first post-war production by the Club, but it picked up where its predecessors, "The Gay Ninetiesn and "Jig-saw", left off. As such, it was a suitable vehicle for showing off the varying degrees of talent of the muscle men, most of whom had recently returned from the wars. The ten-act farce offered a dazzling evening's entertainment to the crowds that packed the College Little Theatre on June 6, 7, and 8. There was everything from a precision-drilled dancing chorus to a strong-man act and back again by way of such amusing skits as "The Shooting of Dan McGrew" and "A Night in a Harem." The show got under way with a chorus of 'Berg athletes raising the curtains for Act One. Thereafter, Master of Ceremonies Mike Rogers took over, and literally everything happened. One of the big hits of the evening was Tony Annecchiarico, cast as the janitor who wandered aimlessly across the stage at any convenient moment. Next to the.Flask and Stagger Club production of "The Shooting of Dangerous Dan McGrew," probably the biggest hit was the "School-room Scene," wherein the cast represented their professors as they saw them. To co-producers Nelson Graham and Norman Morris went credit for one of the most successful shows in the M Club's history. OFFICERS: President, joseph Podanyg Secretary-Treasurer, james Doran.

The Society was re-organized in March 1946 when two members, Maurice Horn and Robert MacDonough returned to the campus from the war. Eleven men were initiated in April and the society functioned at athletic programs and at the bac- calaureate and graduation exercises. Membership is limited to nfteen. Each year five sophomores who have met the required qualifications are duly elected to membership and serve for the remainder of their college days. OFFICERS: President, Robert A.

I nter-Fmterniqf Council 'HIS compact body is representative of every social fraternity on the Muhlenberg campus. The council meets once a month, and has as its purpose the promotion -of better inter-fraternity relations. Rushing and pledging rules are set by this group, and each Greek chapter binds itself to abide by the regulations. Although the council was not very active during the war years, it came into its own again as the ruling body of the social fraternities on the campus in March, 1946. It formulated plans for the big event of the year as far as the council is con- cerned, the Inter-Fraternity Ball held in the Spring of each year. The 1946 dance was held at the Americus Hotel. Throughout the academic year, all fraternities hold house parties in connection with the Junior Prom, the Inter-fraternity Ball, and the Senior Ball. These are regu- lated by the I-F Council. Muhlenberg's service organization, the Cardinal Key Society, is shown ,on the West Hall steps in the upper picture.

Since then the chapter has developed until in 1924 the cornerstone was laid for the present chapter house on the edge of the campus. In the summer of 1943, the fraternity house was given to the College to be- used as a freshmen dormitory. It remained as such until the Fall of 1944, when the local chapter once again took over its house. Although at one time only about six brothers were living in the house, Alpha Iota, managed to keep its head above water, so that once again today, its influence is felt strongly on the campus. Social functions were few and far between during the war years, but still the few brothers who were on the campus managed to have a few social events to keep things lively. Today plans are being made for house parties, dances, and many other varied social functions. FRATRES IN FACULTATE: Dr. Robert C. Horn, Dr. Edgar Swain, Dr. Harold K. Marks, Professor Roland E.

It was organized to combat a vicious political machine. Since its founding in 1906, Phi Kappa Tau has spread over the entire country and now is comprised of a closely-knit organization of 48 chapters. The Eta Chapter, installed at Muhlenberg in 1917, had previously been the ancient Alpha Sigma local fraternity. The Phi Kappa Tau chapter at Muhlenberg is justly proud of its honor of being the first fraternity at Muhlenberg, and the first fraternity in the National Organization, to own its own house. The mortgage was burned in October, 1938. The fraternity house was given over to the College for use as an upperclassmen dormitory when the Navy took over the College in the summer of 1943. It was returned in the Fall of 1944. Although activities of the fraternity were curtailed during the war years, some social events were scheduled, nevertheless. Once again the fraternity is assuming its place of prominence on the campus, and such things as the Founder's Day Banquet, and the houseparties on the junior Prom and Senior Ball week-ends, are once again being held.

In thirty-two years it has grown into one of the three largest national fraternities, and since the war it has become the second largest national social fraternity, with chapters in 58 states and Canada. The Nu Epsilon Chapter at Muhlenberg was founded in September, 1940, as a result of the merger of four older fraternities on the campus, Delta Theta, Philos, Phi Epsilon, and Theta Kappa Nu. - When the Navy took over the Muhlenberg campus in the summer of 1943, officials chose the Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity house to be the "Sick Bay", because of its central location. The Chapter house faithfully served as such until July of 1946, when it was returned to the active chapter. Although Lambda Chi was the last fraternity to receive its house back, the brothers all felt that the house had done its part for the war eHort. Since the return of the house many improvements have been made. The entire downstairs of the house was completely refinished and the floors were scraped, waxed, and polished, new furniture was bought and in general the house is once again looking like the Lambda Chi House of old. Vast plans for house parties, dances, and other social functions are being made and once again Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity has become a dominant force on the Muhlenberg College Campus.

Q hbha Psi Omega OMING to the Muhlenberg campus in 1930, the Gamma Mu chapter of Alpha Psi Omega has been the honorary fraternity for those students who have achieved notable success in dramatics. During the war, the chapter remained active through the efforts of its Faculty members, Mr. Andrew Erskine and Mr. Kingsbury Badger. Then, last Spring, the chapter was once more put on a working basis with the return of a few former students and the initiation of several new members. This fraternity, composed as it is of the best dramatic talent, has always proved an .asset to the campus life and is even now showing its worth in the dramatic activities at Muhlenberg.

Five colleges have become associated with the national organization since that time. The bi-weekly meetings were again held at the home of its first president, Dr. Russell W. Stine, whose untiring efforts have aided in making the fraternity one of the most active on the campus. Many interesting and educational papers were presented at the meetings by students, Faculty members, and noted speakers. Some of the speakers were Dr. Horn, Dr. Barba, Rabbi Azneer, Father Huesman, and Dr. Christ. Some of the interesting highlights of the organization's activities were the doggie roast at Big Rock and a sleigh ride. A number of impressive initiation cere- monies were conducted for the neophytes. OFFICERS: President, Ernest Hawk, Vice-President, L.

The fraternity was founded in 1908 by representatives of Indiana universities and colleges. Today its publication, "The Speaker", goes to chapters in all the forty-eight States. Tau Kppa Alpha has as its colors light and dark purple. The Muhlenberg chapter was instituted in 1926 through the efforts of Arthur T. Gillepsie, former coach of debating. He has been succeeded by Dr. john D. M. Brown and Professor Ephraim B. Everitt. During the war the Muhlenberg chapter was inactive because few men stayed on campus long enough to meet its high requirements. In the Spring of 1946 Faculty members and returning brothers revived the activity. OFFICERS: President, Ernest Hawk, Treasurer, Philip Mitterling, FACULTY MEMBERS: Dr. John D. M.

Eta Sigma Phi TA SIGMA PHI, which was chartered as the Alpha Rho Chapter in 1932, is an outgrowth of the Classical Club. The national fraternity developed from the Classical Clubs of Chicago and Northwestern Universities. The fraternity has as its aim the promotion of interest in the study of Greek and Roman culture. An appreciation of the languages is being fostered by the fraternity. The activities of the fraternity were varied in nature. At the regular meetings interesting papers were presented on phases of Greek and Roman culture. A lively discussion ensued after the presentation of the paper. Interesting features of the organization's activities were the plays presented at Cedar Crest, and the Roman banquet. The organization is ever widening its activities to study new cultural phases.

Kappa chapter, at Muhlenberg, was instituted in 1929. Since the fraternity has extremely high entrance requirements and since during the war few students remained on the campus long enough to comply with these, the organization was inactive at Muhlenberg throughout the war years. Early in 1946, several men, who had been initiated earlier, returned to the campus, and with the help of the members on the Faculty the chapter was reorgan- ized and an active program was undertaken. Chapter members were among those to represent Muhlenberg at a model United Nations Assembly for colleges, and monthly meetings were held at which papers of various aspects of history were presented. OFFICERS: President, Walter Weller, Secretary-Treasurer, John Myers. FACULTY MEMBERS: Dr. james E. Swain, Dr. Victor johnson, Mr. Norman B. Wilkinson, Mr. Karl F. Wittrich, Mr. Philip Bollier. MEMBERS: Walter Weller, Maurice Horn, john Myers, jack Reumann, Phil Mitterling, William Richards. , PM Sigma I om NACTIVE during the war years, Phi Sigma Iota was revived last Spring, and already has shown promise of becoming a well-knit organization. Started in 1928 by Dr. Anthony S. Corbiere, head of our Department of Romance Languages, the Lambda Chapter holds monthly meetings at the homes of the various members. At these meetings, one phase of the romance language countries is presented by a member and then discussed. Membership is honorary, being based on superior grades in the study of romance languages, and showing an interest in them and the fraternity's activities. Dr. Corbiere, Faculty adviser and treasurer of the local groups is also Historian of the National Society and editor of their publication, The News Letter. Delegates to the national convention held in St. Louis, Missouri, last April, were President Walter Yarus and Dr. Corbiere. These national conventions are held once every three years. OFFICERS: President, Walter Yarus, Treasurer, Dr. Anthony Corbiere. FACULTY: Dr. Anthony Corbiere, Mr. Charles Pershing, Mr. Norman Wilkin- son, Dr. Edward Fluck.

Graduation exer- cises in June, 1946 Csee next pagej ended three years of such training on the Muhlenberg campus. fzisj Chapter VII GRADUATION Gmduqzlioze Week, mee, 1946 UHLENBERGFS first peace-time commencement week in four years was marked by the traditional activities that had been missing on such occasions since 1942. With many Alumni already out of uniform and others home on leave, a gala time was promised, and the resulting week-end of ceremonies and reunions, high- lighted by commencement on Monday, june 24, was successful in the typical Muhl- enberg manner. After a week of final examinations, students at the College climaxed their semester with the Graduation Ball, held Thursday evening, june 20, at Castle Garden, Dorney Park. Featured was the music of Shep Fields and his orchestra. The procurement of Fields and his New Music, which features saxophones and in which brass is totally absent, maintained the College tradition of securing a nation- ally known band for such occasions. The spacious dance floor was decorated by the Student Council members, who were responsible for the entire affair. The commit- tee included President George Sweda, Secretary-Treasurer Paul Gesregan, W. Robert Oswald, Foster Blair, Richard Bergman, Joseph Podany, Oscar Baldwin, William Hillegass, and Anthony Annecchiarico. Chaperons present at the dance were Dr. and Mrs. Russell W. Stine, Dr. and Mrs. Preston A. Barba, Professor and Mrs. Anthony S. Corbiere, and Mr. and Mrs. Alex Corriere. More than 250 students and alumni and their friends attended the formal affair, and a number of invited guests from the Faculty, Administration, Ship's Company, and the unit were in attendance. Two events headed the program on Friday morning, June 21. At 10:00 o'clock the Alumni Golf Tourney began at the Lehigh Valley Country Club. Top honors went to James Reber and Alex Matusa. At the same time three members of the junior Class participated in the annual junior Oratorical Contest in West Hall Auditorium. Faculty judges were Dr. George Brandes, Dr. Elmer Kilmer, and Mr. John Wagner. Prizes were awarded at commencement. First place, the Clemmie Ulrich award of twenty-five dollars went to William Young, of Weatherly, who spoke on the topic, "The American Pursuit of Happiness." The Class of 1908 prize, fifteen dollars, for the second best speech, went to Jack Reumann, of Lansdale. Reumann's subject was "The Fearless Warrior," a study of Franklin Delano Roose- velt. The third speaker was Philip I. Mitterling, of Hollidaysburg. His topic was "A Chance for Lasting Peace," a comparison of peace attempts after the two world wars. "Well done!" says the Navy Department to Muhlenberg's three year training program, as Captain Harold R. Stevens, director of training in the Fourth Naval District, hands a certificate of Commendation to President Tyson at 1946 commencement exercises.

This enabled the inclusion of the complete history of Navy units at Muhlenberg as well as Spring sports and graduation, moreover, it permitted the printer, engraver, and binder more time and allowed publication of the book at the beginning of the Fall semester with the largest enrollment in College history. All business details were in the hands of jim Gross and his staff. Each Associate Editor was responsible for one section of the Ciarla: jack Schwalm, Faculty, Robert Oswald, Classesg Foster Blair, Training Units, jack Yohe, Sports, and Paul Ges- regan, Activities. Without them and the members of the staff the publication would have been impossible. Photographic credits go to Jim Loving of H. Leh and Company for Junior and Senior portraits, the Call-Chronicle Newspapers, Merin Studios of Philadelphia, Mr. Robert Behler, and INS. The engravings were made by Sanders-Reinhart, Allen- town. The book was printed and serviced by the Kutztown Publishing Company. Special words of thanks must go to Mr. Gordon Fister and Miss Elsie Mittl in the Public Relations Office, Mr. Charles H. Esser of the Kutztown Publishing Com- pany, and Mr. Gurney Afflerbach and Miss Dorothy Weigner in the Athletic Oiiice. Faculty advisors Dr. john D. M. Brown and Harry A. Benfer many times gave criticisms and encouragement. In so long a list, someone has probably been omitted, but to the many who in varying degrees helped make the 1947 Ciarla possible the staff says, "Thanks!" fzzoj APPENDIX 73ourd of 'Trustees Elected by the Ministerium of Pennsylvania Term Expires 1946 Mr. B.
