iH Ifmf WH mm. wm ' i, pgjjl I CIARLA OF 19 5 3 Editors: Ralph W. Hassler Charles L. Knecht Nathan W. Rodnon Dr. Truman L. Koehler, Advisor HiuAimi " 7 YEAR IV REVIEW MUHLENBERG COLLEGE ALLEXTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA THE NINETEEN FIFTY-THREE VOL. 59 CIARLA FOREWORD “Knowledge does not comprise all which is contained in the large term of education. The feelings are to be disciplined; the passions are to be restrained; true and worthy motives are to be inspired; a pro- found religious feeling is to be instilled, and pure morality inculcated under all circumstances. All this is comprised in education .” — Daniel Webster FRATERNITIES PAGE 118 PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE Muhlenberg College is known for its beautiful campus, magnificent buildings, well-equipped laboratories, learned faculty, efficient staff, and excellent courses of study. In reality, it is more than all these combined. Essentially it is a faith and a life. For it is an adventure in the realm of the spirit to explore the possibilities of human beings for a larger and better life in an atmosphere dominated by the spirit of the Master. Everyone who has contributed to Muhlenberg’s growth has had faith in its performance. Every student who enters the College has faith, whether he recognizes it or not, that the struggle and the venture will be worth the effort. Every teacher lives in the faith that each student will catch his enthusiasm, will glimpse a wider vista of the possibilities of human life, and will go forth a better person. Muhlenberg’s educational program is only partly aca- demic. It is the total impact on the students of a special way of life over a period of four years lived on the campus. That is why the residential character of the College is so important. That is why the size of the student body makes a difference. Learning to live together is a part of the process of growing up. Living together on the Muhlenberg cam- pus is an essential part of Muhlenberg’s educational pro- gram. One learns to live with one’s fellows in the corridors of East and West Hall, in fraternity houses, in the Commons, on the athletic field, in student government, as a member of the numerous student organizations and clubs, as well as in the classroom and laboratory. Here are found, in the give and take characteristic of group life, opportuni- ties to share ideas, to develop basic attitudes, to learn how intelligently to manage one’s life, and to make life-long friendships. Participation in campus life is a highly edu- cational process. It provides no academic credit but a student neglects it to his own loss and regret. Classroom and laboratory procedure is necessarily organ- ized and formal. Campus life is informal and free. Par- ticipation in both is essential for a liberal college educa- tion which prepares men for responsible leadership in a free society. Sherwood R. Mercer, M.A. Dean o) Faculty Robert C.

Still wet behind the ears when arriving at Muhlenberg, the Class of 1953 has made noticeable progress and at the present time remains as one of the outstanding classes at Muhlenberg College. The Class of 1953 began their social season with the “Show Boat” Junior Prom at Castle Gardens on February 22, 1952 with Boyd Raeburn and Johnny Guarnieri provid- ing the entertainment. Miss Nancy Glick, Allentown beauty, was crowned as Junior Prom Queen at the year’s outstand- Class of 1953 ing social event. Members of the Class were active in every organization on campus. In due time, the Class of 1952, assumed the student leadership on campus which rightfully belonged to them. They also continued the Insurance Endowment Policy plan, inaugurated new traditions, and was the first class to contribute a gift to the Physical Education building which is still in the stages of construction. The Class of 1953 will long be remembered at Muhlen- berg College. CLASS OFFICERS Robert Druckenmiller Earl S. Heffner, Jr. Robert A. Smith R. Lee Shortridge 0 F 1 9 5 3 RALPH J. ALTHOUSE, JR. A.B.

ACTIVITIES i SECTION Arcade Editorial Board Paul Bosch William Charlesworth Pete Mourad Dr. Perry F. Kendig The 1952 issue of the Arcade, the creative writing maga- zine of Muhlenberg College, was presented to the Muhlen- berg community in the Spring of the school year. The edi- torial board composed of Pete Mourad, William Charles- worth, Paul Bosch and Mr. Perry F. Kendig as advisor, decided to publish one joint issue of the Arcade rather than two issues — one each semester. The Arcade integrates into one edition, the creative talents of the campus. Artistic, as well as literary ability, is recognized by the Arcade and stimulated. Unfortunately, this year’s issue of the magazine was devoid of artistic en- deavors, but that did not detract from the interest or high quality of the book. The Arcade is one of the newest student publications on campus, having made its debut in 1939. The magazine has not changed its editorial policy from its inception; only the format has varied. As before, the Arcade will continue to present to the men of Muhlenberg the creative talents of its own men. Cardinal Key Society The Cardinal Key Society is a voluntary organization on campus which dedicates its service to Muhlenberg Col- lege and Allentown. Cardinal Key performs many valuable services, such as ushering at school assemblies, vesper services, home athletic events, commencement exercises and Civic Little Theater plays. In addition to this work, Cardinal Keymen are Muhlenberg’s official hosts, and guide all visiting groups around the campus. Six members of the class of 1942 founded the Cardinal Key Society May 28, 1940. Their ideal was to have a society that could be of service to Muhlenberg, and also be Muh- lenberg’s official welcome wagon to visitors. Ray Turner, Charles Keim, Edward Wisser, William Kuzmiak and Robert Laudenslager were the pioneers who founded Car- dinal Key. They chose Paul Gebert, college registrar, as advisor for the infant society. Once again, throughout the academic year of 1951-2, Cardinal Key proved that it is one of the most valuable or- ganizations on campus. In addition to its already heavy program Cardinal Key played host to over three hundred Boy Scouts in October of 1951. The Cardinal Keymen also volunteered to serve as ushers for Vesper Services each Sunday evening in the college chapel. On April 21, 1952, the society escorted four hundred rotary wives around campus. These examples are evidence of the good will Cardinal Key strives to promote. Through all these activities, the Cardinal Key Society strives to serve Muhlenberg in every possible way, and to further a lasting feeling of friendship with all visitors that come to Muhlenberg. Officers President Donald Wood Vice-President Keith Paulison Secretary-Treasurer Karl Peckman Chapel Choir Officers Manager Harold L. Hasenauer Assistant Managers, Arthur J. Henne, Lee R. Shortridge Accompanist John Schug Director I)r. Harold K. Marks The Muhlenberg College Chapel Choir, since its forma- tion from the Glee Club in 1931, has continued its practice of singing sacred music at Chapel Services, special College functions, and at churches throughout the Middle Atlantic States area. Linder the direction of Dr. Harold K. Marks, the 1951-52 Choir of forty voices presented church con- certs in Laureldale, Lebanon, Pennsburg, Burholme (Phila.), Perkasie, Lansdale, Lehighton, Boyertovvn, and Middletown, which was sponsored by the Olmsted Army Air Base. Special concerts were the ’Berg-Crest Carol Service; Christmas Caroling; an Assembly Program at Emmanuel Reformed Church, Allentown; for the College Ladies Aux- iliary and the District “Rotary Anns”. Of particular note was the concert with the Cedar Crest College Choir and the Allentown Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Donald Voorhees, held at the Lyric Theatre in March. The annual Choir social was a turkey banquet held at The Willows on May 8. Awards were given — keys to mem- bers with four semesters’ service and tie clasps to seniors with six semesters’ service. Commuters’ Club The Alpha Lambda Omega Commuters’ Club was formed at Muhlenberg in the Spring Session, 1950, by approxi- mately fifty town students. It is the outgrowth of a similar organization at Lehigh University, whose purpose is to unite the commuters, both socially and extra-curricularly in order that they may gain the most of campus life that is possible under the strained program of a commuter. A.L.O. maintains a Club Room in the Student Union Building where members may gather for lunch, bull ses- sions, or rest. The social activities of the year began with a barn party held in conjunction with the Lehigh group and the alumni. Other events on the social calendar in- cluded the annual “Victory Ball”, Christmas party, and doggie roast. This young organization has done a great deal to ad- vance the standing of commuters on campus and has con- tributed many leaders to the school’s other activities, social as well as scholastic.

Hassler _ i Photography and Activities Charles L. Knecht 1 v icirlci The 1953 Ciarla, published by the Class of 1953, is the fifty-ninth volume of the Ciarla to be published. This magazine is one of the most eagerly-awaited publications on campus. The yearbook serves as a connecting link between the alumni and their Alma Mater, besides serv- ing as a pictorial reminder of the events of the past year. On account of unforeseen circumstances which were fur- ther complicated by the passing of time, the publication of the 1953 Ciarla was unduly delayed. The staff and editorial board of the 1953 Ciarla, however, hope that this delay has not been unpleasantly received. We are very grateful indeed to the men who have given so freely of their time and experience in order to present the yearbook to the school. To Mr. Jacob Esser of the Kutztown Publishing Company go our sincerest plaudits. Dr. Truman Koehler is to be thanked for his interest and suggestions. The Student Council deserves a round of ap- plause for being overwhelmingly patient and helpful to the Editorial Board of the 1953 Ciarla. Without the aid and interest shown by all concerned, the 1953 Ciarla might never have been published at all. To all those men who have contributed to the final result of the 1953 Ciarla, we thank you very sincerely. Copy and Layout Nathan W.

TRUMAN KOEHLER Muhlenberg DeMolay Club Early in 1949, a group of student Masons wished to form a social organization which would foster a closer fellowship among fellow Masons on the campus. These men, realizing that the veteran, who is an older student, would not be a permanent member of the student body, wished to form a club which would be more permanent and w ' ould be able to benefit the future students of Muh- lenberg College. The idea occurred to these original mem- bers to organize a DeMolay Club for all DeMolay members enrolled in Muhlenberg; it was decided that Masons in- terested in this work could act as advisors to the group. An organization meeting was held for all interested DeMolays and Masons. As the idea gained enthusiastic support, preliminary steps were taken to formally put the club into operation. Thomas Calnan, a student Mason, was elected advisor. The school year came to a close before much further work could be accomplished. During the next year the club continued its process of organizing, and it formally began to function when it was recognized by the faculty and the Student Council. Dean “Haps” Benfer became faculty advisor, officers were elected, and a constitution was adopted. The club became known as the Muhlenberg College DeMolay Club. Its meetings are held the second and fourth Thursday of each month during the regular semesters. The purposes of the DeMolay Club are to maintain the fraternal spirit of DeMolay by bringing into one circle all DeMolays in College, and by mutual cooperation and sup- port, strengthen each member in the application of De- Molay ideals and character to every phase of student life.

Barba, ’06. It is an honor club for students of the German language and endeavors to cultivate a more intimate ac- quaintance with the language and customs of the German people. Students who have attained superior grades in German 21 are recommended for membership. Under the revised constitution, membership is limited to fifty. Its meetings, conducted in German, are held bi-weekly and consist of music, recitations, readings, talks by well- known personages, plays, and games. Outstanding occasions in the life of the club are the annual “Weinachtfest”, the “Damenabend”, and the “Ausflug.” Forensic Council The Council, organized in the spring of 1933, has as its purpose the promotion and fostering of public speaking activities in the College. Inter-collegiate debating, intro- duced at Muhlenberg in 1924, is directed by the Council. The 1951-1952 Forensic Council consisted of eight mem- bers. Dr. Andrew Erskine advised and coached the group. The annual Freshmen Debate Tournament was held dur- ing the fall term. Eugene Schiffer and James Corgee com- prised the winning team. The Council participated in nine intercollegiate debates during the debate season. Two teams participated in the debate tournament held at Hofstra College on February 9, 1952. The Council played host to a debate team from Drew Brothers College of Madison, New Jersey. The debate was held in the West Hall auditorium. The national topic for debate for the 1951-52 season was “Resolved, that the federal government should establish a permanent sys- tem of wage and price controls.” The Muhlenberg debate squad finished the year with a record of one victory and eight defeats. The officers for the year were President, Rodney Houck, Vice President, Karl Ringer, Secretary, Robert Killough and Claud Harms, and Treasurer, Jay Blum. A banquet held at Spurgeon’s Hotel ended the year’s activities. Officer President Rodney E. Houck Freshman Tribunal Officers and Members President Robert Moorhouse Vice President Dave Coover Jim Aslanis Bob Bertram Kermitt Gregory A1 May Fred Grosse Don DeQuevedo John Adams Irwin Scher The Freshman Tribunal, a judiciary body appointed by the president of Student Council, serves as a disciplinary group to pass judgment and place penalties upon all in- fringements of the rules set up by the Tribunal. The sophomores and upper-classmen are responsible for the enforcement and reporting to the Tribunal the names of the offenders and their various offenses. Freshmen, when brought before the Tribunal, listen to the charges and they have a chance to make their pleas of guilty or not guilty and also to state their own defense. After proper deliberation a verdict is rendered by the Tribunal along with a sentence. The Freshman Tribunal sponsors three Soph-Frosh events: the Tug-of-War, the Pushball game, and the Foot- ball game. The officials of these events are the president and vice-president of the Tribunal, with Mr. Ritter and varsity football players assisting at the Tug-of-War and Football game respectively. To each incoming freshman Tribunal soon states its policies during Freshman Week at a meeting of the fresh- man class, where all rules are outlined. These rules continue until, at least, Halloween and may continue until Thanks- giving if the frosh do not win their specified number of events. Intercollegiate Conference on Government The Muhlenberg Chapter of the Intercollegiate Confer- ence on Government had an especially eventful year both on the campus and at the State Convention. Campus ac- tivities were highlighted by a “Presidential Candidates Discussion Forum” which featured four nationally known speakers presenting the case for their presidential candidate. Also held on campus was a model Presidential Primary Election that decidedly favored the nomination of General Eisenhower. At the State Convention, Karl Ringer, ’52, was defeated for the position as Chairman of the Convention by a very small margin. Ringer had previously been named the of- ficial Northeastern Regional candidate at a Regional Con- vention. Officers Chairman Sigmund Levine (Fall term) Richard Thomson (Spring term) Vice-Chairman Jay Negin Secretary-Treasurer Robert Summers Institute of Christian Living The Institute of Christian Living was organized to meet a challenge. This challenge was the present world, a world in which a great percentage of the people lived in the con- stant shadow of deprivation and fear. With the scene once more set and preparation completed, the Institute of Christian Living commenced on Monday, February 11, 1952, with a morning worship address by Dr. Edmund A. Steimle, pastor of LTniversity Lutheran Church in Greater Boston, Mass. Bull sessions and panel discussions centering about such things as the “Elements of Freedom”, “Freedom and the State”, “Freedom and the Disciplines”, and “Freedom Through Truth” consti- tuted the remainder of the program. Participants and leaders of such discussions included Dr. David Bremer, The Reverend Doctor H. Grady Davis, The Reverend Wallace E. Fisher, Rabbi Newton J. Friedman, The Reverend Bruce Morgan, Dr. Raymond J. Sieger, The Rev. Edmund A. Steimle, Father H. G. Hynes, Dean Janet Stamm, and Miss Joanne Amspoker.

Ever since its formation in the 1920’s, the I.F.C. has functioned as the integrating body among the six social fraternities on campus. The council has always aimed to increase the relationships between the fraternities and ad- ministration; to make and enforce regulations concerning situations which may arise among the fraternities. Any social fraternity on campus automatically becomes an I.F.C. member, contingent upon faculty and adminis- tration acceptance. Each member fraternity elects three representatives to the Council. The four officers change every year, each office being held by a different fraternity. I.F.C. is the supreme governing body of all fraternities, each rule and regulation subject to reviewal by the Council, with final approval of the faculty and administration. Mask and Dagger The Mask and Dagger Club of Muhlenberg College is the outgrowth of the Cue and Quill Club, absent from the list of campus activities since 1931, when the club was renamed. Mask and Dagger is the training outlet for all students who are interested in any phase of play produc- tion. In their association with the club the members are brought into contact with acting, makeup, stage and light- ing technique, publicity, costumes, and many other mechan- ics of play production. Each semester the club presents one feature production and occasionally supplements it with one-act plays. Robert Richardson closed out his brilliant career on the Muhlenberg stage with his outstanding performance as Romeo in William Shakespeare’s immortal tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, in the fall semester of 1951. In the spring term production, Detective Story, Paul Bosch displayed his abil- ity once again by adequately filling the roll of Detective McLeod. Needless to say there were many others who helped to make the productions successful. Members of the student body are called to fill the male roles in all the club’s productions. Women’s roles were capably filled by girls from Cedar Crest College and native Allentonians. 0 fficers President Paul Bosch Vice-President Robert Richardson Secretary Grant Ludder Treasurer Evan Kranzley Business Manager John Ziegler M Book David Black, Editor John Ziegler Jeanne Krause Kramer Oratorical Contest Muhlenberg College Band President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Librarian Officers Millard Wilfong James Robbins Jay Blum George Dunn Peter Grimes The Muhlenberg College Band was organized in 1912. Professor C. Spencer Allen was the advisor. In 1927 Mr. Martin Klingler of the Allentown Band was appointed as director. Since then, three professional directors have been associated with the band: Mr. Henry Sotys, Mr. Anthony Gagnesak, and Mr. Willard P. Schisler. In 1948 the band participated in the inaugural parade of Harry S. Truman. This year the Muhlenberg College Band played at all the Muhlenberg football games. The band provided many in- teresting formations at half times and snappy music during the games. The band participated in Allentown’s Halloween Parade, the annual Pajama Parade of Muhlenberg Fresh- men, and played for the annual pilgrimage of Boy Scouts to the Muhlenberg Campus. Muhlenberg Christian Association The Muhlenberg Christian Association is a non-sectarian student organization whose purpose is to serve the Christian needs of the student body through extra-curricular activities and numerous services intended to enrich student life on campus. The members, united by a common loyalty to Jesus Christ, seek to understand the will of God through worship, study, and action, and strive to realize it in both personal and social living. To enable greater student participation in the program of the organization and to render it more responsive to student needs, the M.C.A. is divided into four commissions; religious action, social action, personal and campus affairs, and world relatedness. All students become technical mem- bers of the association through college registration. Par- ticipating members are each given an active membership card. The program for the year consisted of three types of meetings. First, there were meetings of the executive council and the cabinet. These were largely planning ses- sions and meetings to inspire the active members to greater service. Second, there were small discussion groups of students and faculty leaders which met throughout the year. Third, there were large general meetings with out- standing platform addresses or panels devoted to some relevant problem. The highlight of the year was the third annual Institute of Christian Living Week held February 9-12 sponsored in part by the M.C.A. Through this week many prominent speakers were brought to the campus to guide the students and faculty through a week of concentrated religious think- ing. Dr. H. G. Davis, Dr. R. Seegers, Dr. E. Steimle, and the Rev. W. Fisher were some of the participating leaders of the week. The M.C.A. is a member of the Middle Atlantic Region of the Student Christian Movement, which includes all student YMCAs and YWCAs in this region, and through that organization, is a member of the national and inter- national World Student Christian Federation. Officers President Harold Weiss Vice-President Robert Loucks Secretary William Malkames Treasurer Carl Harris Muhlenberg Weekly The Muhlenberg W eekly is often referred to as the “voice of Muhlenberg.” It is the vehicle of student information and opinion. The purpose of the W eekly is to present the Campus life and activities of the College Community with- out prejudice. The history of the Weekly antedates any other student publication, the first issue appearing in 1883 under the name of The Muhlenberg. In 1914, the name was changed to that which it bears today. The newspaper is a student publication in every aspect other than the mechanical printing of the paper. Faculty advisers have been appointed, but for all practical pur- poses, the students are the newspaper. The Weekly is the only student publication which proudly boasts of never missing a publication date since its inception, even during the hectic days of World War II. The Associated Collegiate Press, of which Muhlenberg is a member, rates college newspapers annually and the W eekly has always achieved high honors.

Shankweiler, ’21, in 1931, admits into membership any student having in- tentions of entering the medical field who has completed one year of college, attaining at least a C average in Fresh- man Chemistry, and electing for his Sophomore year, the courses requisite for entrance into medical school. The organization endeavors to bring the medical profession closer to those students who intend to join its ranks by securing as lecturers men who, through years of service, have reached eminence in the field of medicine. Annual visits to health institutions, hospitals, and medical schools, also form an important part of the society’s program. This year’s (1951-52) meetings were highlighted by medical and surgical films and by stimulating speakers including Dr. M. I. Schurman, a specialist in Internal Medicine, who spoke on “The Heart in Relation to Mod- ern Living”; Dr. Merrill C. Leister, a pediatrician, who spoke on “Hemorrhagic Diseases”; and Dr. G. L. Kratzer, a proctologist, who spoke on “Diseases of the Colon and Rectum”. In addition, the quadrennial overnight trip was made to New York on March 26-27. Extensive visits were made to the Medical Schools of Columbia and Cornell Univer- sities at that time. Officers President Edwin Rothfeld Vice-President Donald Hohe Secretary Ken Beers Treasurer John Mest Adviser . Dr. John E. Trainer Pre -Theological Club During the 1951-52 college year the John A. W. Haas Pre-Theological Society held a series of semi-monthly meetings for the purpose of providing Scriptural educa- tion; deepening the spiritual lives of its members; providing Christian fellowship; confirming the members in their chosen profession, the ministry; being a factor for Christ on the campus of Muhlenberg College and elsewhere. Included in the first semester were recordings of Jesus’ Teachings and Parables; talks by the Rev. Dr. Harvey C. Snyder, the Rev. Dr. Ralph Sell, Jr., and the Rev. William Ward; a panel discussion by student members on Predes- tination; and a Family Christmas Party. The second semester featured “Christ’s Kingdom — Man’s Hope”, talks by members of the Student Volunteer Move- ment; addresses by the Rev. Dr. Karl S. Henry, The Rev. Rollin G. Shaffer, Mrs. Richard C. Klick, and Dr. George W. Brandes. The group enjoyed a spring trip to the Luth- eran Publication and Book Store and to the Philadelphia Seminary. A banquet, honoring Dr. Edward T. Horn and Dr. Charles W. Hepner, ended the Club’s activities. Officers President Harold L. Hasenauer Vice-President Joseph W. Schwartz Secretary Ray B. Nyce Treasurer Ralph Blumenfield Psychology Club The Psychology Club of Muhlenberg was founded in the fall semester of 1947. Although membership in the or- ganization is restricted to Psychology majors, or men who have completed nine hours in this field, the programs which it presents are for the benefit of the whole student body. The program for the past year has emphasized the dis- cussion of the new developments in psychology. The bi- weekly meetings were informal get-togethers with refresh- ments, in which we discussed new books which were pub- lished, new theories which were presented in recent papers, and such things, but we concentrated mostly on discussing the part which psychology is playing in our modern life, in plays, in motion pictures, in radio, in television, and in novels and other books not directly connected with psychology. Dr. Haagen and three members of the club went to the annual Eastern Psychological Association Convention held in Atlantic City, where we listened to many new papers, saw new pictures, heard the results of many new experiments together with the presentation of new theories on the inter- play of heredity and environment in personal development. It was an excellent opportunity to see, hear, and meet the “big men” in this field. The club in connection with the department as a whole presented the motion picture “ The Quiet One ” on campus this past semester. This picture depicting the development of a young colored boy who had been subjected to frus- tration in many phases of life as well as to racial prejudice, and his rehabilitation, has won acclaim from the general public as well as from the authorities, and was certainly educational as well as entertaining. The Psychology Club plans in the coming year to sup- plement its general informal discussion meeting with one meeting a month in which we will be addressed by an outside, outstanding authority in the field. Officers President-Secretary Richard Jentsch Program Chairman Keith Paulison Science Club The Science Club is designed to promote interest and understanding in the field of Natural Science. Membership is not necessarily limited to science majors; any student of Muhlenberg is eligible for membership. The club, which meets bi-weekly, endeavors to bring outstanding research and industrial personalities in the scientific field to the campus in order to present short talks or demonstrations on current and various aspects of science. Such meetings served to acquaint prospective scientists not only with pertinent information, but also with the obstacles which they may expect to encounter in their future undertakings. Topics which were discussed during the school year were: “The Laminar Chart of the Elements”, “Astrophysics”, “Plastics”, and “Liquid Air”. One of the highlights of the year was a student participation meeting at which several members of the club presented talks on research work which they had done. The club also sponsored a trip to the Safe Harbor Hydro- electric Plant of the Pennsylvania Power and Light Com- pany which is located at Safe Harbor, Pennsylvania. Future plans promise to be equally interesting. Officers President William Raupp Sponsors Dr. Robert A. Boyer, Dr. G.N. Russell Smart Sociological Society The Muhlenberg Sociological Society was organized in April 1950, to provide a closer fellowship among students interested in sociology. The organization discusses sociology in an attempt to create an understanding of the significance of the study and to develop a more scientific attitude toward social issues which concern citizens in a democracy. The Society meets monthly to hear speakers and student discussions on topics of general interest in the field of so- ciology. During the college year, the Society made two trips — one to Philadelphia, where it visited the Philadel- phia City Planning Commissi on, slum areas of the city, and several city housing projects; and one to New York City where the Society made a two-day tour of Ellis Island, Welfare Island, and the Lutheran Inner Mission Society. In March the Society held its second annual open meeting inviting the College community and outside guests to see the motion picture The Quiet One and to take part in a discussion of the implications of this picture. This year the Society directed its attention more toward student topics and discussion at its meetings. Two of its meetings were held at the homes of the faculty advisors where students discussed the topics “Sex Education” and “Community Reorganization”. In May the Society held its annual ban- quet at which time the newly elected officers were intro- duced. Dr. Morris S. Greth and Mr. William Ward, the faculty members in the Sociology Department, serve as advisors to the Society. Officers President Eucene C. Kreider, Jr. Vice-President Robert H.

Ringer The Muhlenberg College Student Council, the official governing organization of the Student Body, is subject only to the statutory regulations of the Board of Trustees and Faculty, as specified in the Student Body Constitution adopted in 1939. Its purpose is to serve as the supreme executive organ for the directing of student activities in its many ramifications. Initial steps toward formation of a Student Council at Muhlenberg w ere made in 1910 with the establishment of an advisory group of students. A provisional constitution was drafted, and the precedent for today’s highly inte- grated and active Student Council was established. Among the activities promoted by Student Council dur- ing the year were many entertaining assembly programs Class Presidents Fall 1951 Semester Senior James H. Loucks Junior Robert A. Smith Sophomore Robert Young Freshman Ralph Sell Spring 1952 Semester Senior Elwood 0. Semmel Junior Robert A. Smith Sophomore Jack Jordan Freshman Ralph Sell and dances. An innovation which met with considerable success was the sponsoring of informal dances held in the newly renovated Student Center and the establishment of the annual Spring Day. Through the aid and support of the Council; the embryo radio station developed into a functioning organization, continuous promotion of better campus facilities was made, and jurisdiction over student disciplinary cases was maintained. A vital factor in main- taining Student Government was the inclusion of a section in the By-laws of Muhlenberg College, recognizing the purpose and powers of the Student Council. Student Coun- cil has become the most highly recognized student organ- ization. In view of its achievements, Student Council is deserving of this esteem. Varsity " M” Club The Varsity “M” Club is composed of all those athletes who have earned a varsity letter in any sport. The Club is primarily athletic in nature and is organized for the pur- pose of assisting in the development of athletics. It is also somewhat social in nature, sponsoring annually a formal dance, a musical show, and a social party. The Club pro- poses to promote a more harmonious feeling among the members of the various athletic teams, to discourage ath- letes from breaking training, to raise academic standards of the athletes, and to strive for high standards of sports- manship. The Club annually awards a ten dollar prize to the best all-around athlete of the Senior class and a trophy to the most outstanding Junior member of the Club. During the course of the 1951-1952 school term, the “M” Club was unable to sponsor its dance and musical show because of a lack of funds and a lack of co-operation on the part of the members. However, the Club did hold its annual social party and gave its assistance in the prep- arations for the All Sports Banquet at the end of the second semester. Although the Club was somewhat inactive, several of the members, with the aid of some of the administration, began to take steps for future years. The first step taken was to select Dr. Webb of the Spanish Department as the advisor for the forthcoming year. The next step was to begin work on some project that will in some way unite the Club with the community of Allentown. With these two major strides taken, the Club is looking forward to successful years in the future. Officers President Fred Mazucca Vice-President George Mills Secretary Karlton Batt Treasurer Dave Noble WMUH In the Spring of 1948, the Muhlenberg Radio Club was founded. It held its meetings in the projection booth of the Science Auditorium. A year later the Club was granted a permit from the F.C.C. to broadcast on campus as a cam- pus broadcasting station only and was assigned the fre- quency of 640 Kc and the call letters WMUH. Since then the station has developed into one of the more active or- ganizations on campus. It has moved to new and efficient studios in the basement of tbe Library and possesses mod- ern equipment. The campus station is very similar in its operation to a commercial station, although somewhat smaller in power and audience. During the school year of 1951-52, under the faculty guidance of Dr. Perry F. Kendig and Dr. Robert Boyer, WMUH added more honor to its reputation. It provided entertainment for the entire student body as well as being a training unit for the active members. Many men learned the fundamentals of radio technique, and contributed their talents to entertaining Muhlenberg. 0 fficers Station Manager James McNally Program Director Ray Wolfert Chief Engineer Carl Meiss Public Relations Dave Solomon Chief Announcers Ray Klein, Nate Rodnon Sports and News Director Pete Sachs Special Features Bill Schick Business Manager Jim Early Faculty Advisers , Dr. Perry F.

Assisting the former Mule linecoach was Ernie Fellows, “Red Dietz” and Larry Rosati. The team was composed of many sophomores who were stars of the victorious freshman team of 1950. Head Coach Tom Triplett, “Red” Dietz, Larry Rosati, Ernie Fellows 1951-1952 Muhlenberg “Mules” The opening game was held at Allentown High School Stadium vs the Vikings from Upsala College. Muhlenberg’s eleven outplayed and outgained the visitors throughout most of the game: neverthe- less they went down to a 13-8 defeat as the Vikings pushed across 2 touchdowns in the last five minutes of play. ’Berg scored in the first half. Miller broke through to tackle an Upsala ballcarrier in the end zone. Shortly thereafter, Dotter and Scarpa carried the ball from the Mule 35 to the opposition’s 3 yard line. Two plays later Dotter tossed an aerial to Miller who caught it in the end zone. The Vikings picked up their first T.D. on a thirty yard runback of an in- terception. The winning six pointer was made by Fortunato who was the outstanding player on the victorious team. av S ve e e ' J Next on the schedule was Bucknell against whom the Muhlenberg eleven displayed ability and spirit, but the opposition fielded a powerful football machine which went on to roll up the score and achieve a 54-19 victory. The Miller-to-Reed combination accounted for two touchdowns. The first pass was for 30 yards and the other for 60 yards. Later with only a few minutes to play, a five yard touchdown pass from Skidmore to Miller ended the scoring for the game. Little Jim Colagreco rose above Berg’s defeat to show some sensational punting. The third game of the season was played under a warm October sun; however, the sun’s rays failed to touch off the spark that would set the Cardinal and Grey rolling. The final result found the Triplettmen with one touchdown to Lebanon Valley’s two. The first half was a game of fumbles, but before it was over Lou Sorrentino tossed a 20 yard aerial into the end zone. The pass was caught by Oxley after bound- ing off the hands of two players. Early in the third period another Sorrentino T. D. pass made the score 12-0. The Mules lone score came on a Mills to Paster- chick pass. Statistics showed that the Muhlenberg eleven led in first downs, total yardage gained, yards gained in rushing, passing, and in just about every- thing but the score. Wescoe headed for trouble; Derstine unable to help The thirty-fifth in a series of grid classics was held at Fischer Field in Easton and the large crowd wit- nessed Muhlenberg absorb its fourth defeat at the hands of the Lafayette Leopards. During the first half neither of the teams was able to crack its opponent’s defense. It wasn’t until four minutes in the third quarter that the Leopards took the ball on their own thirty-nine yard line and stalked into the Muhlenberg end zone for the first score of the game. The Cardinal and Grey took the kickoff and began their own drive. They coupled two short passes with six rushing charges which ended when Wescoe romped over from the eleven. Bill Woodworth booted the extra point to knot up the score. The Mules made another attempt to score but this terminated with a field goal attempt which went wide. Lafayette picked up where ’Berg left off and they were more successful for they went downfield for the winning touchdown. Although La- fayette students in an act of vandalism whitewashed the Allentown campus, the Leopard eleven was unable to do the same as the game ended — Lafayette, 14; Muhlenberg, 7. Pretty messy day ! When Willie Wescoe broke loose for a touchdown and Bill Wadsworth successfully converted the extra point in the first period it looked as though the Mules might stop the Bullets. The Gettysburg team wasn’t content to remain on the short end and they scored 4 T.D.’s before Berg scored again. The offensive began to roll in the fourth quarter when Skidmore passed to Reed on the eleven. Don Cornman, who played good ball throughout the game, wormed the ball to the one yard line from where Joe Trechak took it over. Woodworth’s conversion made the final score Muhlen- berg, 14; Gettysburg, 34. A fighting Muhlenberg team forced the University of Delaware to bring forth their full offensive might in order to hand them their sixth defeat of the season. The final score was 21-7. The seven points were gained in the final minutes of the game on a Skidmore to Wescoe pass. Skidmore also booted the extra point. The Blue Hens scored their first T.D. in the second quarter, their second and third T.D.’s came in the third period. ’Berg defense closing in Dejection personified The seventh game of the season against Lehigh University was in most respects quite different from the six games already played. The contest was played on Saturday afternoon, November 3rd before 3,000 shivering Homecoming Day fans at rain-soaked Allen- town High School Stadium. The final score 3-2 would be expected from a close baseball game and not from a football game. Lehigh scored on a field goal kicked by Trillhaase. An intentional safety accounted for ’Berg’s two points. The likeness of this game to the pre- vious games was that the Muhlenberg eleven again found itself at the short end of the score. The statistics revealed an evenly matched game except for the su- perior punting of Jim Colegreco whose booming kicks drove the Engineers back into their own territory. Scarpa blocking for Woodworth After having lost the first seven games of the sea- son’s schedule the Triplett men were not to be denied, as they outcharged, outfought, and outscored the Scranton College eleven to win 14-0. The play of the day came when Dean Bohs and George Schindler blocked an attempted punt. The Mules recovered the bounding pigskin on the Royal five yard line. Dotter and Scarpa carried once each and then Dotter broke off tackle for ' Berg’s first T.D. The kick was good and the score was 7-0. In the latter part of the second half the victors recovered a Scranton fumble fifteen yards from pay dirt. After short gains by Dotter and Scarpa, Joe Trechak went through guard from the two for the score. Bill Woodworth again converted. The remainder of the game was highlighted by the passing of Skidmore and the circus catches of Reed and Pasterchick. The afternoon of November 17th saw the Mules absorb their last defeat of the 1951 season. As a result of two first quarter miscues which led to two Albright touchdowns, the Cardinal and Grey was trailing 13-0 as the second quarter began. On the first play of the period Skidmore passing from the Muhlenberg ten hit Gene Reed, a senior, with a perfect pass, on the twenty-two. The veteran end then romped seventy-eight yards to score. Bill Woodworth con- verted to make the last point of his college career. Thereafter, Muhlenberg was constantly driving deep into Albright territory, but the drives were always stopped short of the goal line. It wasn’t until the last period when an Albright punter stepped out of the end zone to add two points to ’Berg’s seven and make the final score Albright, 13 Muhlenberg, 9. Despite their poor record of one victory against eight defeats Muhlenberg had many outstanding ball- players. Ernest M. Scarpa was voted the most valuable player of the 1951 season. He received the most votes from the four professional newspaper writers wit- nessing each game. Scarpa, the first Sophomore to capture the trophy, participated in every game. He was a steady ground gainer all season, driving for more than two hundred yards during his offensive chores. His blocking was always effective and in the latter half of the season, Tom Triplett utilized Ernie’s tackling talent to bolster his defensive line-up. Whoops! Cross Country Where’s ’Berg? The Muhlenberg harriers led by Captain Floyd Schupp started the season off with a win. The Cross-Country men topped Albright 21-39 as Schupp ran the course in a few seconds short of a new record time. The next meet Muhlenberg lost by a big score 16-41 to St. Joseph. ’Berg went on to meet Haverford in a duel meet, held on the 4.4 mile Cedar Parkway. The Allentown runners lost the meet however, Schupp was the individual winner, as he crossed the finish line in 23 minutes and 18 seconds. In mid-season the Cross-Country team won its second meet by trimming Lafayette 24-33. Homecoming week-end saw the Mules hampered by an injured Floyd Schupp lose its meet with Lehigh by one point 24-23. Schupp finished second. On Friday afternoon November ninth the Cardinal and Grey played host for the fifth straight year to the Middle Atlantic Cross-Country Championship Meet held on the Cedar Parkway Course. It was the last year that Muhlen- berg would play host to the meet. There were thirteen col- leges entered in the run. The St. Joseph team did a repeat performance in winning the championship two years in a row. The performance by the Muhlenberg harriers was bet- ter than in 1950. The team as a whole came in seventh. Schupp finished 17th, and the other ’Bergmen came in 26th, 38th, 59th, 62nd, 67th, and 73rd, in a field of ninety starters. This marked a fine finish to a season which was more successful than the 2 win 3 loss record indicates. 1951-1952 Harriers with Coach Fellows In answer to the soccer mentor Ernie Fellows’ call for tryouts for the 1951 Muhlenberg Soccer Team some 24 green but ambitious men together with three veterans reported to the first practice. The players from last year’s team were “Dick” Eichner, center for- ward, “Bill” Hitchcock goalie, Ed Martin inside play- er. An impressive Lehigh team ruined the Mules debut by handing them a 4-0 defeat. On October 17th the ’Berg hooters lost to an ag- gressive team 3-1. “Dick” Eichner scored the lone tally. The next encounter was against Haverford the Middle Atlantic champs. The inexperienced Cardinal and Grey were beaten 9-2. During the game goalie Bill Hitchcock received a serious kidney injury and he was taken to the hospital. After losing to Rutgers 2-0, the Cardinal and Grey hooters put up a hard fight, coming from behind to tie the score, but not quite being able to push out in front they finally slipped behind losing to Lafayette by the score of 4-1. At the fourteen minute mark “Red” Noble lofted a corner kick into the middle and little “Dick” Eichner headed it through the goal. Coach Fellows’ soccer team lost its final encounter of the season bowing to a strong Stevens Tech team 4-1. Tom Yarnall scored Muhlenberg’s fifth point of the season, when he kicked one into the nets during the last quarter of play. The hooters didn’t win any of its six encounters but they gave a good account of themselves. £ i J Jw 7 Basketball The outlook was brighter than it had been for the past few years as Benny Borgmann’s 1951-52 prepared to open the season. The nu- cleus of the squad was comprised of the stars of the previous years Freshman team, plus four juniors who played varsity ball last year. There wasn’t one senior on the team, however, there was an unknown quantity of help which might come from the Freshman tryouts. The year’s schedule included many teams which were recog- nized as possible post season tournament en- trants. Front row: Cutko, Rudolph, Coach Borgmann, Eckert, Noecker, Bonacci. Back row: Hand, Stianche, Whelan, Slimmer, Maxwell, Friedman, Gemma The Cardinal and Grey started its cage season with a decisive win over a battling Moravian five, 85- 63. Coach Borgmann was determined to use the pla- toon system. He opened the game with four sopho- mores and one freshman. This team of Friedman, Whalen, Rudolph, Gemma, and Maxwell built up a 20-17 lead, when they were replaced by Eckert, Cutko, Bonacci, Hand and Noecker. This second team lost the lead and needed help from the starting five in order to give ’Berg its 37-33 half time lead. The second half saw Borgmann’s boys in complete charge, as they ran the opposition into the boards. Rudolph was high man with 20 points, he was followed by Friedman, who was captain for the night, with 14. Captain Larry Friedman Muhlenberg scored its second victory by edging out the favored University of Delaware Blue Hens, in the final fifteen seconds of play. The lead changed hands no less than thirty-four times, as both teams played good aggressive basketball. The second half began with ’Berg leading 43-42, and they maintained that one point lead into the fourth period. With a minute and one half to go Delaware got the long awaited break, when they received two foul shots. Utt missed the first shot, and they took the ball out at mid-court in lieu of the second shot. Rudolph inter- cepted the throw-in and the fighting Mules charged down the court. The ball was passed around the outer court until Larry Friedman drove in with less than ten seconds to play. Friedman was fouled and as the crowd went wild he sunk his free throw and won the game. The final score was 88-87. Dick Rudolph was high scorer with 26 points. The highly rated Seton Hall five, minus the serv- ices of their star Walter Dukes, defeated the Mules 67-57 after a hotly contested game. The few Berg rooters who followed the team to Jersey saw an exciting first quarter, which ended with the visitors on the long end of a 17-16 score. However at half time the Hall was ahead 32-28. The Mules continued to lose ground in the next period. The final stanza came up with Reegan hitting. Therefore, when Dick Rudolph was forced to leave with five personal fouls the game was all but over. Dick Rudolph Lehigh’s underrated Engineers pulled a big upset when they dumped the favored Mules 75-70 in an overtime thriller at Rockne Hall. The regular playing time ended when Friedman’s foul shot knotted the score 61-all. All was in vain as the Allentown five scored only eight points to Lehigh’s 13 in the five minute overtime period. Friedman was almost the whole show, for not only did he score 26 points but he also kept the erratic Mules together. The play of the night was the way Friedman fell on the floor causing the referee to call a foul on the Lehigh lad. Moreover, the free shot awarded on this play was the one point that tied the score. Bob Maxwell An unbeatable U. of P. five that wouldn’t miss a shot, toppled the Mules at Rockne Hall by the score of 89-64. The fans watched in amazement as Ernie Beck repeatedly scored with his jump-twist shots. Ernie went on to be high scorer with 21 points. Early in the final period Bobby Maxwell led a ’Berg uprising which narrowed the gap down to 13 points. However, the re-entrance of Beck and Brooks sewed up the Quaker victory. Playing at Convention Hall in the last game before Christmas recess the Muhlenberg team upset the Tem- ple five by a 78-67 margin. The game was decided in the first period when the Cardinal and Grey rolled up 27 points to Temple’s 5. As Friedman and Eckert ran wild on the offensive, the defense kept All-American Bill Mlkvy under control. Jts for a Sai st y en Pl “Gummy” going for the loose ball against St. Francis (N.Y.) Sparked by sharp shooting, kangaroo- jumping Vern Stokes, the terriers of St. Francis College of Brooklyn, New York stopped the Mules by a count of 70-64. A general inability to make good their shots and their occasional defensive lapses kept Bennie’s boys from registering an upset win over the once beaten terriers. Larry Friedman again led the Mules with sixteen points. Bob Maxwell finally exploded all over Rockne Hall, as he pushed eleven jump-shot field goals through the hoop and rang up 25 points in the Cardinal and Grey triumph. The final score was 86-82, and this handed the Lebanon Valley five its first defeat of the season. The Easton five, Lafayette, coached by Bill van Bredakolf trounced the ’Bergmen 67-57 as their Cap- tain Pete Carill tallied 31 points. Cardy Gemma Villanova’s basketball team, led by All-American candidate Larry Hennessy who scored 30 points, de- feated the home team by a record-breaking 107-81 score. The 107 points set a new Rockne Hall collegiate scoring record as did the aggregate 188 points. It was also the first time an opponent had scored over 100 points against the Cardinal and Grey. Hennessy put on an amazing exhibition of set shooting from any spot on the floor. The closest any of the Mules could come to his thirty points was Friedman’s 18. Coming back after their loss to Villanova the Mules tried to hit three figures, but they had to be content with a 95-84 victory over the Bucknell Bisons. Although ’Berg was the aggressor in the first half and led during the early stages of the contest, La- Salle’s precision and experience opened up a sixteen point gap in the score before the end of the third quarter. The Muhlenberg five scored 25 points in the last period, but couldn’t stop the combination of Grekin, Gola, Moore, and Iehle, as they went down to a 95-77 defeat. The outstanding players on the Mule squad were Maxwell and Friedman with the usual steady assistance of Frank Cutko; Maxwell scored 24 points and Friedman 23. Dick Eckert The Gettysburg Bullets ran up against a Muhlenberg team that played a very good game of basketball for the first three periods. ’Berg was sparked by the hard driving Cutko who played an excellent game off the boards. In the last quarter the Cardinal and Grey of- fensive fell away to nothing, as they scored only three points to the Bullets’ twenty-two. Nevertheless, they managed to eke out an 88-82 victory. It was strictly a team victory with the five Mule starters Friedman, Gemma, Cutko, Maxwell, and Ru- dolph playing almost the whole game, and each con- tributing to the defeat of the heavily favored St. Jo- seph team. Friedman and Gemma scored twenty-two points each to supply half of ’Berg’s total. The final score was 88-82, and this victory gave Muhlenberg a seven and seven record. Joe Bonacci The Lafayette five made it two in a row over their Allentown rivals. The “Borgmen” weren’t at full strength since “Cardy” Gemma had been injured and was unable to play. The debilitated Mule team was unable to outscore little “Pete” Carill and his Easton cohorts. Despite the fact that Friedman scored 29 points, and Rudolph 20, the end of the game showed Lafayette ahead 83-74. A good Fordham team led by Fred Christ, had enough strength to overcome ’Berg’s scoring surges and end up at the long end of a 84-67 score. Dick Eckert sank two push shots from the keyhole in the last two minutes to give the Mule quintet a 54-52 win over the Lehigh Engineers. Handwerk on his way up ; Gemma ready for the rebound Bill Mlkvy, assisted by the Temple Owls, handed the Cardinal and Grey their tenth setback by a 95-86 score in a game which featured a double overtime. Mlkvy tallied eighteen field goals and ten foul shots for an amazing total of 46 points. It was a hotly con- tested game all the way and at half time the score was 42-41. The fourth quarter ended 76-76. The sec- ond overtime period began with all the Mule regulars out on personal fouls, and the Temple team pulled away to victory. Joe Stianche In the closing seconds of an overtime session Dick Rudolph’s short one-hander provided the margin of victory for ’Berg’s ninth triumph of the season. Gemma was top man in the scoring department with 26 of Muhlenberg’s 70 points. The vanquished Al- bright five scored 68 points. Aside from the usual starting quintet the ’Bergmen received strong support from Freshman ‘Charlie’ Handwerk. On the twentieth of February the Mules lost to Gettysburg by the score of 93-82. Larry Hand The LaSalle College Explorers tuned up for their 1952 N.I.T. debut by downing a fighting Mule team for the second time this season. The final score was 92-77, and the high man for ’Berg was Bob Maxwell with 17 points. The scoring leaders of the contest were LaSalle’s Norm Grekin and Fred Iehle tallying 22 and 21 points respectively. Tom Gola, 6 ' 6 " , com- pletely dominated the boards, as he grabbed 29 re- bounds, his high for the year. The “Borgmen” were exceptional in foul shooting, as they hit on 14 out of 15 shots taken in the first half. Falling one point short of hitting one hundred the Mules won easily over their Bucknell rivals 99-74. Frank Cutko led the assault with 31 counters, highest point total reached by a Mule basketeer this season. The Mules closed their 1951-1952 schedule by re- ceiving their thirteenth defeat. In a high scoring con- test the Cardinal and Grey los t to St. Joseph by a score of 95-84. Maxwell regained his old shooting form as he led the Mules with 27 points. However, this wasn’t enough to offset St. Joe’s John Doogan who hit for 30. Frank Cutko With a season’s record of 10-13 behind them Coach Bennie Borgmann’s young Mule quintet have a bright future ahead of them next season. Larry Friedman was given the Weekly Most Valuable Player Award. Larry was high scorer with 77 points in 23 games for a 16.4 average per game. He was 58th in the standing of top scorers and fourth in the nation’s assist department. The Mule offensive average was 77 per contest, which was sixth highest in the country.

The 1952 team had only three men from the previous year’s team: Bob Druckenmiller, Karlton Batt and the reliable Arland “Ace” Adams, who wrestles in the 137 pound class. The opening meet again Ursinus saw the inexperienced ’Bergmen defeated. Muhlenberg matmen dropped their second decision when they fell to the Lafayette grapplers 21-13. “Ace” Adams and A1 Billy pinned their opponents in the 137 and 147 pound matches respectively. Marv Cress- man also gained points by winning a decision in the 167 pound class match. On January 19th, the Mules met the matmen from Gettysburg, and went down to their third defeat of the season. Adams continued his unbeaten streak by decision- ing Mighell of Bucknell. Dechesser, Beach, and Cress- man also won their matches. ’Berg won four bouts, three by decisions and one by a pin. The final result was a 14-14 tie. West Chester Teachers College brought a team of highly proficient grapplers to the West Hall gymna- sium. Most of the bouts were one-sided as Teachers won all but one contest. Although the Mules absorbed another defeat it was no shame losing to this powerful West Chester outfit, 31-2. Coach Fellows and the ’51-’52 Grapplers Muhlenberg’s wrestlers were beaten decisively by a strong Delaware crew 23-11. However, despite the one-sidedness of the score some of the Mules’ key wrestlers salvaged wins to improve their own per- sonal records. Captain “Ace” Adams gained his fifth win of the campaign against only one loss. A1 Billy triumphed by a 10-2 margin for his fourth victory against two defeats. The only pin gained by a Mule grappler was scored by Marv Cressman in the 167 pound class. The Middle Atlantic States Association Champion- ship Meet was held at Swarthmore, and the Muhlen- berg squad gained distinction by the victories of Adams, Billy, and Peters. Captain Adams captured the 137 pound championship medal, Billy was run- ner up in the 147 pound class, and Peters garnered fourth place in the 157 pound division. The victories of these three men enabled the Mules to capture sev- enth position in the tourney which was won by a favored Gettysburg team.

There were quite a few lettermen awaiting the new coach, and the outlook for a good season was bright. Those returning from the 1951 team were outfielders Fred Mazzucca and Jack Pollit, infielders Joe Busolits, George Mills, Dave Noble, and Jack Stryker, pitchers Art Henne, Bill Kerns, and Gordon Latzko and catcher Willie Wescoe. Joe Miano, Mike DelTufo, Cardy Gemma, Cass Wanczyk, and Frank Sproviero headed a group of promising Freshmen ballplayers who re- ported to spring practice. Playing their first game under their new coach the Mule baseball team lost to the Temple Owls 3-1 in Philadelphia. Opening game jitters plagued the ’Berg- men in eight game-losing errors. Bill Kern pitched tight one-hit ball in the eight innings he worked. The Mules outhit the victors 8-4, as Joe Miano collected three singles. A two-run rally in the top of the ninth wasn’t enough as the Cardinal and Grey nine dropped a close 4-3 decision to the Moravian team. Latzko did some out- standing pitching as he struck out ten men. Berg’s Bill Kern had fanned twelve, walked but three, and had a four-hitter in the making. He looked untouchable as the ninth inning began; then the Bisons scored five times before Kern could get the last out. The final score was 7-6 in favor of Bucknell. Albright’s star pitcher Charlie “Hook” Martone tossed a sensational no hit, no run game against the Mules. He walked only one and fanned six. The Al- bright nine belted home seven runs and sent Gordon Latzko to the showers. The Cardinal and Grey came close to getting their first win when they tied Lafayette college in a 5-5 game that was called on account of darkness after ten innings. Cass Wanczyk took over in the fourth and pitched brilliant two-hit ball for the last seven frames. Lawson’s men were still looking for their first vic- tory as they scored one run and left sixteen men on the bases in their game with the LaSalle Explorers. Kern, Sproviero, and Wanczyk were belted for seven runs as the Mules went down to their fifth defeat by a score of 7-1. m JL. Wanczyk winding up Base hits were dropping in all over the diamond and Lehigh players continued to round the bases until the score board showed ten runs and nine hits. The ’Berg fielders helped out by committing five errors as Bill Kern put on a poor exhibition of pitching, especially in comparison to the hurling of Leo Butz, a former Allentown High star, who shut out the Muhlenberg nine. After losing six games and tieing one the Mules met the Moravian nine for the second time this season. It turned out to be a big day for Coach Lawson’s vic- tory-hungry nine, for they broke into the win column by belting their opponents to the tune of 13-4. The winning pitcher, Art Henne, twirled the entire nine innings and limited the Greyhounds to eight well- scattered hits. The Mule hitting attack was led by Joe Miano, who collected four for five. An enthusiastic, Spring Day crowd saw a hard- hitting and sure-fielding Lafayette baseball team prove to have too much for Lawson’s red-capped batsmen. Sproviero started and pitched three innings. He was followed by Henne and Kern. Miano continued his excellent stick work by getting two for two, and knock- ing in one run. The final score was Lafayette 7, Muh- lenberg 2. An eighth inning homer by the St. Joseph second sacker gave them a 3-2 victory over the Cardinal and Grey. Cass Wanczyk, freshman right hander, yielded five hits in this, his first starting assignment. His team- mates were limited to three. The Mules unloosened a fierce 21-hit barrage that included home runs by Stryker, Pollit and Busolits, to defeat the Gettysberg team 15-4. Mills and Maz- zucca each got four hits. Although Muhlenberg College staged a frantic three- run rally in the top of the ninth, it fell one short and they suffered a 4-3 loss to the Delaware team. Opening the ninth, George Mills singled and held up at second on Fred Lutz’s one-baser. Jerry Novick ran for Mills. Ernie Wescoe’s ground-out froze the runners, but Cass Wanczyk reached first on a fielder’s choice. On the peg home, Novick, with spikes flying, crashed into the catcher and scored ’Berg’s first run. Lutz then tallied on a passed ball and Noble singled home Wanczyk. On May 17, Lehigh came to Allentown looking for their second victory of the season over the Mule nine. However, Lawson’s men won this, the last game of the season, by a 5-1 score. Golf Tom Triplett went from the gridiron to the green as he led the golf team through three weeks of practice in preparation for the 1952 season. After a qualifying match Coach Triplett cut his squad to eight men. The returning veterans from last year’s team were Cauff- man, Bonacci, Franzblau, Stott, and Ambrose. The newcomers were Raupp, Teta, and Bob Lessel. The first match was played at the Lehigh Valley Country Club and the Mules defeated their Gettysburg oppo- nent 6-3. Cauffman was low man with a 75, five over par. The Cardinal and Grey came up with only one winner as Bud Cauffman posted the day’s low score of 73 on the par 70 course. The Lehigh golfers were the victors by an 8-1 count. On May 3, the Mule golfers edged out St. Joseph, 5-4. The Muhlenberg golf team did very well as they finished third in the Juniata College Invitation Golf Tournament at Huntingdon, Pa. Nineteen schools entered teams, including the defending champions, Juniata, who made it two in a row by again finishing first. One of the best scores of the day was achieved by Berg’s Chris Franzblau, who finished seventh out of 54 participants. ’Berg’s golfers putted their way to victory as they closed a successful season with an 8-1 win over Mora- vian College. The Linksters with Coach Triplett Tennis The Muhlenberg College tennis team under the guidance of Dr. Shankweiler, opened its season with a 5-4 triumph over Drexel in a match that lasted four hours. The Mule netmen recorded three points in the singles event with wins by Bob Parker, Martin Acker and Walt Borden, and two points in the doubles event by the victories of the Parker-Borden and Paulison- Wall combinations. In the next encounter against Albright the score was reversed as the Mules went down to a 5-4 defeat. Playing against a strong Lehigh team Doc Shank- weiler’s boys were able to garner only one point to the opposition’s eight. The only win came in a doubles match, when Parker and Borden defeated McKinly and Bugbee 6-4, 5-7, 6-4. A proficient tennis team from the University of Bucknell defeated the Mules 8-1, in a well played match. Again the Parker-Borden combination scored Muhlenberg’s only point. In tbe singles event Parker, Schane, Acker, Borden, Paulison and Wall went down to defeat without winning a set. In the final match Lauchman and Krevsky were defeated 6-0, 6-0. The Cardinal and Grey netmen again avoided a shut- out as Jack Borden won his match against his Lafay- ette opponent. The final score was 8-1 with Muhlen- berg on the short end. After falling behind in the singles events by a 4-2 count, the Mules came surging back to tie the score 4-4 with one doubles match remaining to be played. However, Temple won it and the match 5-4. Schane and Paulison won in the singles, and the Schane-Acker, Krevsky-Lauchman teams won their doubles. The Mules again took it on the chin against Gettys- burg as they went down to a 6-3 defeat. Parker and Schane scored in the singles. The Cardinal and Grey finished the season by los- ing to St. Joseph and Haverford by the score of 9-0. Coach Shankweiler and the Mule Netmen Track Ernie Fellows’ track team had a pronounced short- age of standout individuals and depth, as they pre- pared to enter their first meet of the 1952 season. The meet, a triangular one, was completely dominated by Lehigh. Gettysburg finished second and Muhlenberg third. Rip Boyer and Floyd Schupp, veteran Mule dependables, saved their team from a humiliating defeat by taking three first place spots between them. Boyer won the broad jump and finished in a tie for first place in the high jump. Schupp won in the mile run and finished second in the 880 yard run. The Cindermen with Ernie ' €D COLLEGE ' © COLLEGE ' ca COLLEGE The Berg trackmen lost their second meet of the season 72-49 to Albright. Schupp and Boyer again took first places in addition to the victories of Lee Shortridge and Dick Acker. In the 58th annual Penn Relay Carnival, running on a muddy track, the Fellows’ coached quartet of Ehlers, Shortridge, Helsing and Schupp finished sixth in both events they entered. In the College Class Mile Relay they finished third from last. The next day they came in sixth in a field of nine that was running in the Middle Atlantic Track Mile Race. Thirty feet isn’t a bad jump, is it? The Mules’ cindermen lost their third consecutive track meet to the University of Scranton by the score of 69-57. Shortridge won the 100 yard dash, Schupp won the mile run and the 880 yard race, and Ehlers won the 220 yard run. ’Berg scored two other firsts when Aslanis won the shot put and Boyer won the high jump. These first places plus many second places brightened up the day for Muhlenberg. The Muhlenberg track team was once again run into the ground. The powerful Lafayette cinder team won twelve out of fourteen events. Schupp, who led in the half mile, and Acker, who placed first in the two mile run, were the Cardinal and Grey’s only winners. The outclassed Mules picked up only six other points as they went down to a 104-22 defeat. The season drew to a close with a meeting in which the Mule trackmen finished a poor third to LaSalle and Temple. The Owls won with 94 points. In the Middle Atlantics the Cardinal and Grey didn’t place. Just one more to go, Butch. Cheerleaders A very fine cheerleading squad, which for the sec- ond consecutive year was trained and captained by Dick Benter, who has been on the squad for four years, participated faithfully in the 1951-52 athletic program of the college. In the past several years great strides have been made towards the improvement of school spirit on campus. The cheerleaders have persistently provided the spark which has set the students aflame with enthusiasm. New and old pep songs and yells were introduced or revived. An active Freshman Tribunal encouraged a good freshman class to support the cheerleaders in their drive to popularize these yells and songs. A new policy for the management of future cheer- leading teams has been suggested to the administra- tion of the college. Although much has been accom- plished in recent years towards the establishment of better support for athletic teams, a great deal more remains to be done. The cheerleaders deserve a big vote of thanks, for they offer their time and energy in the service of dear old alma mammy with only the thrill of leading the crowd as payment for their serv- ices. A core of five returning from last year’s squad carried the weight of the 1951-52 cheerleading team. These men were Dick Benter, Ronald Shane — the new captain, Dave Coover, Dick Miller, and Lou Romulo. Four freshmen, A1 Lindell, Pete Davidson, Irwin Scher and Jim Ferguson, did a commendable job in their first season as cheerleaders. Kneeling: Miller, Benter, Shane. Back row: Davidson, Sher, Ferguson Intramural Sports The Muhlenberg Intramural Program, under the direction of Czar Bill Ritter, ran from October to May and included four sports. The 1951 Intramural Foot- ball championship was won by Sigma Phi Epsilon as they plowed through a rainy season. Having lost but one game in seven starts, Sig Ep edged A.T.O. and Lambda Chi Alpha for the title. Heading the cham- pionship team were Fred Mazzucca, John Delissio, Chick Bruno and Chick Marrucci. The SPE’ers proved they had a strong defense as well as a powerful offense, as they allowed only seven points to be scored against them all season. They copped the first four games by shutouts. The Sportsmen, undefeated winners of League I honors, won the 1952 Intramural Basketball crown, beating Phi Sigma Kappa, League II title holders, by a 49-39 score at the West Hall gym. Out-shooting and out-rebounding the losers most of the way, the new champions built up a substantial lead in the second period and were able to maintain a lead of from 8 to 12 points. Bill Kern was probably the game’s most outstanding player, controlling both backboards, scoring nine and effectively handcuffing Phi Sig’s inside men with some beautiful defensive work. Intramural Sports The Rosemark A. C. swept through the softball league, crushing the A’s and Phi Sigma Kappa in the final week of play. The Rosemark team, with Nate Rodnon doing most of the pitching, wound up the season with a record of seven wins and no defeats. This year volleyball was added to the intramural sports. The league was made up of seven teams. The games were played on the courts alongside of the Student Union Building. The season ended on the last day of school. Lambda Chi was in first place with a record of 4 wins and 1 loss. This gave them a total of 50 points. FRATERNITIES! % Alpha Kappa Alpha President Officers Bryce Shaw Faculty Adviser Dr. Russell W. Stine Alpha Kappa Alpha has the honor of being the first na- tional honorary fraternity to be founded at Muhlenberg College. Through the efforts of Dr. Russell W. Stine, pro- fessor of philosophy at Muhlenberg College, the philosophy clubs of Moravian and Muhlenberg united on May 1, 1930 and formed this fraternity which recognizes scholarship in philosophy. Since 1930 n umerous chapters have been added to the roll of interested students in the field of philosophic en- deavor. Alpha chapter meets twice a month at which time mem- bers of the Muhlenberg faculty and faculties of other col- leges and universities present papers on philosophic in- terest. Individual students at times preside over the meet- ings, or the meetings are sometimes thrown open to gen- eral discussion on a given topic. The topics of the papers used for discussion may be of a philosophic nature, or they may present the evidences of the influence of philosophy in the fields of art, literature, politics, theology, or social thought. Alpha Psi Omega Officers President John Ziegler Secretary-Treasurer Grant Ludder Faculty Adviser Dr. Andrew Erskine Alpha Psi Omega first made its appearance on Muhlen- berg campus in the form of the Cue and Quill Club which was later given national recognition as the Beta Zeta cast of Alpha Psi Omega. This organization soon foundered and was not re-established until the formation of the Mask and Dagger club in 1935. In 1936, Alpha Psi Omega was reinstated as the Gamma Mu cast and since that time has been constantly gaining strength and becoming more active as the honorary dramatic fraternity for those students who have achieved notable success in play production. The standards of the fraternity require efficiency in sev- eral phases of play production both before the audience and behind the scenes. Membership into Alpha Psi Omega is extremely difficult to obtain because of the high standards established by the national council. Only those men who have displayed exceptional skill and diligence in this field are eligible, thus accounting for the limited membership. In its position as a national fraternity. Alpha Psi Omega constitutes a bond between our campus and others all over the country. Eta Sigma Phi Alpha Rho chapter of Eta Sigma Phi, national honorary classical language fraterntiy, was formed in 1931 as an outgrowth of the Classical Club. The Classical Club was formed in 1908 and is one of the oldest student organiza- tions at Muhlenberg College. The fraternity has always at- tempted to keep alive an. interest in the classics and to sup- port an appreciative feeling for the ancient languages. The organization aims to provide a closer union of those students interested in Greek and Roman culture as well as the classi- cal languages. The past year afforded the group many opportunities to meet and discuss topics of classical language interest and to hear speakers on related subjects. Dr. Robert C. Horn i s the advisor. Omicron Delta Kappa Since its establishment at Muhlenberg College in 1930, the Alpha Epsilon circle of Omicron Delta Kappa, national honorary activities fraternity, has been regarded as the highest honor attainable in Muhlenberg organizations. Founded at the University of Washington and Lee in 1914, the fraternity continues to strive to maintain the high principles which have been established after thirty-seven years of distinguished achievements. It is a significant fact that Omicron Delta Kappa became the first of all college honorary fraternities of a national characteristic to accord recognition and honor to the im- portance of extra curricular activities and to encourage the development of general campus citizenship. It is also to be noted that while the Society has always had a strong sec- ondary requirement of scholarship, its prime requisite for membership is meritorious attainment in all-around leader- ship in college and university life. During this year, Omicron Delta Kappa has assisted Student Council in the arrangement of assembly programs. They have also assisted the Cardinal Key Society in the establishment of a list of the names and home addresses of all students which will be placed in a card catalogue in the library. Work was also begun on a plaque which would honor all college employees who have served Muhlenberg for at least twenty-five years. This project was discontinued due to the high cost of the plaque. Officers President Jim Early Vice President Truman Koehler Secretary Bryce Shaw Treasurer and Faculty Adviser Dr. Russell W. Stine Phi Alpha Theta Officers President Richard Teal Secretary-Treasurer Gene Angstadt Adviser Dr. James E. Swain The purpose of Phi Alpha Theta, national honorary his- tory fraternity, is to promote scholarship and interest in history. This fraternity, organized in 1921 at the University of Arkansas, was established on Muhlenberg campus in 1929 through the efforts of Dr. James E. Swain and the late Dr. Henry Muller. To be eligible for membership, an undergraduate must have a junior rating, have at least twelve semester hours of history, and must be majoring in history. In addition, he must have an over-all average of 80 and a B or better grade in his history courses. Phi Alpha Theta has consistently maintained a high place in the honorary fraternity field. It prides itself upon its interested and intelligent membership. The chapter meets monthly, at which time discussions are held not only of historical but also of political and economical interest. The chapter also sponsors a prize awarded at Commence- ment for the best historical paper written by a member of the senior class. Phi Sigma Iota Lambda Chapter of Phi Sigma Iota was established on the Muhlenberg campus in 1928. Ever since that time, the organization has been an important factor in college life. With its purpose being that of honoring those students who have distinguished themselves not only in one or more of the Romance languages but also in general college scholarship. Along with this scholastic aspect, the aim of the fra- ternity is to acquaint its members with the various cultural, intellectual phases of the Romance language countries. Lambda chapter seeks to accomplish this through the me- dium of monthly meetings, at which time papers are read and commented on by the group. The resultant discussions and exchange of ideas are of benefit to all those partici- pating. Dr. Anthony Corbiere, founder of the local chapter, has been editor of the national publication, The News Letter, since 1929. He is now the national executive secretary and has served as a national officer longer than anyone else in the fraternity. Adviser Dr. A. S.

Stevens Alpha Tau Omega, the first Greek letter fraternity es- tablished after the Civil War, was founded for the purpose of binding the deep schisms created by that conflict through a brotherhood encompassing North, South, East, and West. The fraternity was born at Richmond, Virginia, on Sep- tember 11, 1865, and its first chapter was established at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Virginia, the same year. The Alpha Iota chapter at Muhlenberg is the second oldest chapter north of the Mason-Dixon Line, and is the oldest on the Muhlenberg Campus. Presaging what was to be one of our most successful social seasons, the fraternity held its first houseparty of the year in conjunction with the Soph-Frosh Hop. Beginning this year, A.T.O. initiated Parents Day, feeling that while we had an annual affair for our fathers, we had neglected, to some extent, our mothers, and the other close friends who were interested in us. Needless to say, the event was a great success, and will be an annual affair in the future. The Christmas season saw another houseparty with the house decorated as Santa Claus’ Headquarters, North Pole. Father’s Day, our annual Founders’ Day Banquet, and two fine houseparties during the Spring closed out the formal social seasons although the impromptu season con- tinued apace. In intramural football A.T.O. advanced to the cham- pionship game, and in one of the finest and most spirited games in intramural history, was edged by a fine S.P.E. Club in the closing seconds. In baseball the team was always a threat, and in basketball A.T.O. captured the intramural and inter-fraternity crowns. This past year has been replete with the enjoyment that comes from the association of the individual with the group, and with one’s awareness that it is not the individual, or even the fraternity that counts in the last analysis, but that it extends to the college and beyond to the country in its entirety. We at Alpha Iota do not today look to our accom- plishments of the past, but strive to see ahead so that the future will be brighter for us, for our college, and for our country. € i t Dr. Robert C.

Lee Shortridge High Beta David Noble High Gamma Wallace Ries High Tau Robert Moorhouse The Nu-Epsilon Zeta Chapter at Muhlenberg College has been a part of the social life of the campus since September, 1920, at which time Theta Kappa Nu merged with Lambda Chi Alpha to form the present chapter. Lambda Chi Alpha, formed at Boston University in 1909, is now the largest national fraternity, with 142 active chapters. The Muhlenberg chapter house at 407 N. 23rd Street has been the home of Lambda Chi since the inception of the chapter in 1940. Since that time continual improvements throughout the house have been made until now an ade- quate, comfortable home exists which house nineteen broth- ers easily. The commissary with its cook, serves three meals daily to the brothers and pledges during a five day week. The 1951-52 college year brought with it a host of im- provements to the chapter house. The exterior woodwork was repainted, and many of the rooms redecorated as well. The first floor was sanded and waxed, giving the downstairs a new look. It seemed to be the purpose of the brothers not only to create a good social life for themselves but also to keep the house in excellent condition at all times. Lambda Chi Alpha enjoyed a very successful year in the intramural sports program. Besides being represented in all the intramural sports, Lambda Chi won the intramural volleyball trophy, the inter-fraternity softball cup, and the intramural all-sports trophy for the highest total number of points in all the intramural sports for the year. The year’s social season began with the annual Fall Formal held at the Americus Hotel. The following day after the dance, was a house party with a “School Spirit” theme. The house was filled with games, fun, and music. As Christmas approached, the annual Christmas party for the children of the Good Shepherd Home was again a success. The children played games, received gifts, and ate all of the cake and ice cream their stomachs could hold. The Junior Prom week-end finally came. The brothers went all out on decorating the house planned on a Medieval Theme. Immediately following the dance on Friday, the decorations were set up. These decorations included a stone covering for the front of the house making it look like an old castle, tapestry and shields for the living room walls, and a wine cellar for the recreation room. The whole week- end turned out to be a fine success. To end our social season a spring picnic was held at Hunsicker’s Grove. It was a combined clam-bake and hot- dog roast and included swimming, refreshments, food and other entertainment. It was just what was needed to end a wonderful and exciting social season.

Charles J. Lavin Ronald Shane Alpha Nu Chapter of Phi Epsilon Pi was installed on the Muhlenberg campus on February 6, 1932 as a result of the dissolution of Sigma Lambda Chi. Although Phi Epsilon Pi is a small fraternity on campus, it is found to be a hard working group that dedicates itself to the betterment of the individual and Muhlenberg. They strive unceasingly to maintain a good helpful program socially, athletically, scholastically, and fraternally. During the opening semester of another banner year, “Phi Ep” prospered in every way under the fine leadership of Superior Jerry Levine. With the aid of his executive committee, he paved the way for success in the Spring semester when the very responsible office of Superior was taken over by A1 Weiner. A1 is an outstanding fraternity man and President of IFC. The social life of the “PEP” boys is their outstanding trademark. In the Fall term the office of Social Chairman was filled by the capable hands of Dave Solomon. He showed the campus one of the greatest parties for the 1951 Home- coming. Barry Altman succeeded Dave in the Spring semester of ’52 and carried on this great social precedent. The Junior Prom weekend was accompanied with a success- ful costume party themed “Roaring Twenties”. The final major affair of the year occurred during the 1952 IFC weekend. Once more the “Phi Eps” were outnumbered ten to one by the campus party-goers. All were welcome and made comfortable. It is certain that under continued fine leadership, Phi Epsilon Pi will turn out more fine brothers that will be proud of the fraternity and have the fraternity proud of them. Thus, Phi Ep achieved another topnotch year to the advantage of themselves and Muhlenberg. S.M.

Since then the fraternity has spread through- out the country until it boasts seventy chapters. Eta Chap- ter, formally installed at Muhlenberg in 1918 had previous- ly been the Alpha Sigma local fraternity. Under the capable leadership of Jack Lauer, the frater- nity enjoyed a most successful year socially, athletically, and scholastically. The true spirit of learning and serious study as advocated by the brothers resulted in Phi Kappa Tau winning the scholastic cup for the Fall semester. In the strongly competitive Homecoming Float contest, the unifying efforts of the brotherhood paid high dividends in the form of the Inter-fraternity Council float award. In the field of athletic endeavors, the Phi Taus showed their superiority in the classic game of bowling, as they were crowned the inter-fraternity bowling champs of 1952. The brotherhood again opened their hearts as has been the custom for many years and held the annual Christmas party for the orphans of the Good Shepherd Home. Santa Claus was there in full regalia with gifts for all those present. The choice of the 1952 Junior Prom Queen had a double barrel effect at Phi Kappa Tau. Not only was the Queen’s date a brother at Phi Kappa Tau but also the Queen was the daughter of an Eta Chapter alumnus. The annual Phi Kappa Tau Spring Formal was the cus- tomary highlight of the school year. The combined dinner and dance was held at the Hotel Easton in Easton, Pa., followed by a houseparty back at the fraternity house. eZ se S yy ' y y?C JPy?6 2 yy ' y F£. Z o ? C z t £yG.

Ruhf Upsilon Triton Chapter of Phi Sigma Kappa was ini- tiated into the Brotherhood of Fraternities on October 21, 1953. Phi Sigma Kappa itself was organized at the Uni- versity of Massachusetts on March 15, 1873. It has grown slowly but steadily and now has sixty-four active chapters from coast to coast. Upsilon Triton’s original home was in A Hall of East Hall. The current house at 401 N. 23rd Street was first occupied by the brothers in the fall of 1950. This past year saw many improvements completed throughout the house. The cellar, living room, dining room, kitchen, and many of the brothers’ rooms were completely redecorated. Gifts of furniture were received from parents and alumni. In the spring, the Chapter was able to purchase a television set which was a most welcome addition to the house. It is the purpose of the brothers and pledges to make the chap- ter house their home while at school. The past year also saw the opening of the Phi Sig com- missary which successfully functioned five days a week in order to serve good meals to the brothers and pledges. The many fine social functions of the fraternity were not unrecognized. Regular coffee and donut dances were held after the football games. These parties culminated in the annual gigantic Homecoming Weekend, during which time brothers, pledges, and alumni enjoyed themselves im- mensely. The traditional Phi Sig stag Christmas party serves as a heart-warming send-off for the fraters prior to Christmas vacation. The second semester saw the brothers outdoing themselves at the I.F.C. Hobo Camp Weekend and Junior Prom Weekend. The social year reached a cli- max in May as the brothers held their annual Moonlite Ball with a picnic and doggie roast the next afternoon, all con- cluded by another dance that evening. There was much for Phi Sig to look back upon, but there is far more for them to look forward to. The Chapter, through the fraternity, will always seek to promote brother- hood, stimulate scholarship, and to develop character. Seniors Sophomores Richard R. Becker James M. Early Horace B.

Since that time it has shown remarkable popularity and thorough organization, so that today it is the third largest national fraternity, showing 118 chapters across the nation. The Pennsylvania Iota chapter of Sig Ep was installed at Muhlenberg April 10, 1938. Under the adverse condi- tions of World War II the fraternity left the campus, but in 1947, reactivated. In 1948 S.P.E. bought a residence at 2215 Gordon Street and the brotherhood lived happily and successfully there until February, 1952, when Sig Ep moved to their present address, 325 North 23rd Street; the beau- tiful former residence of Dr. and Mrs. J. E. Swain. In the past year Sig Ep has been very active in campus affairs and has contributed athletic leaders to Muhlenberg in football, soccer, baseball, wrestling and track, as well as being intramural football champs for two successive seasons. In other extra-curricular activities the wearers of the Golden Heart are prominent in the Weekly, Arcade, Ciarla, Student Council, Radio Sta tion, Class Officers, honorary fraterni- ties, and almost all other activities. Being careful not to allocate too much time to extra-cur- ricular activities, the house also managed to win the College Scholarship cup the first semester and place twelve men on the second semester Dean’s List. The new house presented the brothers with many oppor- tunities for working together to make the house more liv- able, and the Sig Eps gained much pleasure from the ac- complishments of their efforts. New furnishings arrived in time for the big Junior Prom weekend, which was also a house-warming party. Entertainment by the brothers, and a “combo” provided the party-goers with the most success- ful weekend in the history of the chapter since its reactiva- tion. Eighteen seniors bid farewell to Sig Ep in June but the house hopes are high for a continuation of the success these men have begun. To make the new house a place of com- radeship for other fraternity men and all Muhlenberg stu- dents is the Sig Ep aim.
