ADMINISTRATION TACULTy CLASSES OLLEGE I ' - j. CONRAD SEEGERS Ph.D., Litt.D., LL.D. President , Muhlenberg College PRESIDENT ' S MESSAGE To the Class of 1955 — This book is a record of four important years of your lives. 1 hope they have been happy years. Certainly they have been eventful. I suspect that in retrospect they seem to have been very short years, even though when you entered col- lege they seemed, in prospect, almost interminable. As you leaf through this CIARLA, from time to time, now and in the days to come, I hope this record of these years will do more than simply recall old associations and friends. That is, of course, a primary reason for such a book, but the CIAREA can transcend that simple purpose. I hope it will lead you to a continuing examination of yourself, and of the use to which you will put your college education. The Muhlenberg College Annual Bulletin always carries a trenchant and significant statement voiced by Frederick Muhlenberg. “No education is complete unless it prepares a man to discharge all his duties properly in this world and qualifies him for the rewards and employments of eternity.’ Thomas Huxley spoke of a liberal education as producing a man whose “body is the ready servant of his will”; and “whose passions are trained to come to heel, . . . the servant of a tender conscience.” This man. Huxley continues, will have “learned to love all beauty, whether of nature or of art, to hate all vileness, and to respect others as himself. Such criteria and ideals are not learned or achieved in four years. They are on-going. If they are to dominate one’s life they must be reviewed and consciously nourished. We hope these ideals have come to you during the four years this book records. We hope that as you look at these pages you will be constantly reminded of them. And finally, we wish for you success and happiness in your chosen fields, and want to remind you that your college will follow your careers with deep interest and concern. Sincerely. JCS 10 HENRY M.

WHO’S WHO AMONG STUDENTS IN AMERICAN UNI- VERSITIES AND COLLEGES awards each member a certificate of recognition, presented on the campus at an honor award cere- mony. Also, it provides a placement or reference service to assist seniors seeking employment. This year, ten men were given this award. First Row: F. Grosse, 1). deQuevedo, J. Geissinger, A.

The first big social event engaged in by the Sopho- mores was the co-sponsoring of the annual Soph-Frosh Hop on November 5. The “Autumn Capers,” as it was called, had Tim Bortz and his orchestra spreading musi- cal enchantment through the ballroom of the Americus Hotel. Tables were set up cabaret style surrounding the entire ballroom floor. Each table was decorated with an appropriate fall centerpiece to blend with the autumn theme. The gala affair lived up to all the expectations of Dave Miller and his committee. President Vice President First Semester p y?i Secretary Treasurer ... Paul W eidknecht ... Richard Fuhrman Morris B.

The unsuspecting young men soon had the wind knocked out of their sails by the fierce crew of the Freshman Tribunal. The Frosh soon learned their level on campus and settled hack to dodge as many Sophomores as possible in the next two months. In the safety of West Hall they prepared themselves for the grueling encounters with the Sophs. The Tug-of-War was a vicious struggle, but unfor- tunately, the underclassmen came out on the short end and got wet. Enraged by their loss in the first contest, the spirit of the Frosh rose to great heights and they earned themselves a hard fought victory in the Push Ball event. With the series of contests tied at one apiece, the Freshman tried valiantly for a victory in the final event, the Football game. Dinks hung low that night, for the Sophs were victorious and regulations had to continue until just before Thanksgiving. After being assimilated into the Muhlenberg family, the ’58 Frosh were considered one of the finest classes ever to enter Muhlenberg. . President Martin L. L. Baker Vice President .. Norman A.

TIES Chula 1955 The CIARLA is considered one of the most prized posses- sions of many Muhlenberg Alumni, for it serves as a connecting link to college memories. An attempt has been made to present the 1955 CIARLA as an official summary of the year’s events and to have it serve as a chapter in the history of Muhlenberg College. The staff of the 1955 CIARLA has labored diligently to create a book that the students will be proud of and appre- ciate for many years. There were certain difficulties which had to be surmounted, but in all cases, we believe that we succeeded. We are very in- debted and grateful to the many persons who contributed so freely of their time to help produce this edition. Our sincerest thanks go to Dr. Truman L. Koehler for his fine counselling and ad- vising. We would also like to express our thanks to the Peter Jay Studio and the Kutztown Publishing Company for their assistance. To everyone who contributed to the 1955 CIARLA, we are grateful. Seated: D. Lauer, P. Levy. J. Adam. L. Paul, D. Tihansky; Standing: H. Blaze, W.Wormley, I. Kerson, J. Keyser, R. Hodes, R. Fisher, J.

This publication first appeared on the old Muhlenberg campus at Fourth and Walnut Streets in 1883 under the title of the Muhlenberg Monthly. In 1888, the name The Muhlenberg was adopted. Finally, in 1914, when the publication began to appear on a weekly basis, it was christened the Muhlenberg W eekly. This name has remained until today. Even through the days of World War II. when service per- sonnel made up the majority of the student body, tbe Weekly continued to be published regularly. It has long been the pride of the entire staff that the W eekly has never missed a publication date in its more than seventeen student generation existence. At the annual staff banquet in 1954, the Weekly presented a $1000 U. S. Savings Bond to the College for future use in a new student center building. Although somewhat handicapped by this large financial output, the new staff went to work with the characteristic vigor of new leaders. Unusual staff conditions had caused the election of a sophomore as editor-in-chief; and with characteristic underclassman vigor, he and his staff immedi- ately began work to retain, if not raise, tbe paper’s already exist- ing first class rating. During the fall term, the staff cooperated with members of the Gettysburg student newspaper in the institution of the Old Tin Cup Trophy, an award for the victor of the annual football Kneeling , First Row: L.

A special issue also appeared when the Mules rolled over the Blue Hens of Delaware, one of the top football teams in the country. Suppression of drinking. Student Government, Ed Murrow and his TV show, the Charlie Chaplin films, and chapel attendance appeared as controversies for the expression of student opinion and editorial comment. Muhlenberg ' s answer to The New York Times appeared on campus on April 1, when students and faculty received their annual libelous writeups in the April Fool issue. At the banquet on the preceding evening, the members for next year’s staff were formally announced and plans outlined for future issues. The enthusiastic response of the staff paved the way for another year of growth and service. R. Miller, R. Schlittler, H.

Since then it has developed into one of the more active organizations on the campus, and this year was admitted to the undergraduate Publications Board. In an effort to increase its potential, the station petitioned the Publications Board for a loan, which was used to re-equip and renovate the studios in the basement of the Eibrary building. During the school year, WMUH 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. The campus station is very similar in its operation to a commercial station, although somewhat smaller in power and audience. 60 Meade JOHN HOPPER, Editor M-Mook Staff John L. Hopper Sam W.

On the campus, the Student Council functions as the official legislative body of the student body by virtue of the authority given it in the Student Body Constitution which was adopted in 1939. Initial steps were made toward the formation of a Student Council at Muhlenberg in the fall of 1910. A provisional constitu- tion was drawn up, and in October of that year, the first Student Council was elected. The Council at its weekly meetings discusses and resolves problems of the various campus organizations. It allocates funds to most of the groups and checks their progress in respect to the aims of the organizations. Among the activities promoted by the Student Council during the past year have been entertaining assemblies and sev- eral educational programs, including Leadership Training and Academic Freedom Programs. Better campus facilities were also gained by the conversion of the M.C.A. room to a newly fur- nished lounge. Results indicate the level of activity carried on by the Student Council throughout the year. Members President Ronald Schlittler Vice President Gerald Neville Recording Secretary ..

The purpose of the regulations is to create class spirit and solidarity among the Freshmen. The Tribunal tries to achieve these goals by a variety of means; they sponsor three Soph-Frosh events: the Tug-of-war, the Pushball game, and the Football game. The Tribunal holds a meeting with the Freshmen during Freshmen Week to explain to them the purpose and position of the Tribunal. During the subsequent weeks, they hand down penalties to all those who violate the regulations.

Several new projects were in- stituted by the M.C.A. which were favorably received by the student body. The year’s activities began with the sponsorship of the annual Freshman Week. Other events included the conducting of weekly Vesper Services in West Hall by members of M.C.A. and a series of weekly organ recitals in the Chapel which were performed by Muhlenberg students — George Lachenauer, Rich- ard Manheim and Richard Miller. Officers President John Adam This year the M.C.A. presented guest speakers at its regular meetings. Bible studies by Dr. Bremer and Dr. Stine along with talks on Church Art, Architecture, and various phases of the church work. A series of lectures on various religious bodies saw the M.C.A. bring Rabbi Greenberg to speak on “The Faith of the Jewish People;” Father McClain on “The Role of Mary in Catholic Theology;” and Dr. Joseph Sittler on “The Lutheran Church. " The M.C.A. sponsored tours of several churches in the area to acquaint the students with the various religious denomina- tions. One of the high spots in the year’s activities saw the M.C.A. cooperate with the M D to present the religious play, “Murder in the Cathedral.” The M.C.A. also turned its meeting room into a faculty lounge with the Student Council helping to defray the costs of the furnishings. Vice President Arvids Ziedonis Secretary William Quay Treasurer Edward Smith Advisor Mr. W illiam Kinter 64 Institute of Christian Civing Officers Chairman Byard Ebling Secretary Joseph Donchez Treasurer Robert Keys Faculty Advisors .... Dr. William Wilbur Dr. David Bremer The Institute of Christian Living was founded at Muhlen- berg College to meet a challenge. This challenge was the present world. A world in which a great percentage of the people lived in the constant shadow of deprivation and fear. During the past year the I.C.L., which is a committee of the M.C.A., took a new approach in presenting their program. Instead of having the addresses and seminars crammed into one week, the committee decided on a three phase program. The opening phase of the I.C.L. activities occurred on November 1, 1954, featuring the Reverend Colin Williams, Minister of the Methodist Church in South Yarra, Australia. The main topic of discussion was “The Christian Witness in a Divided World.” The second phase of the 1954-55 program began on Mon- day, February 14, 1955. As visiting lecturer, I.C.L. presented Dr. George W. Forell, professor at the State University of Iowa. Dr. Forell’s addresses concerned Truth, the LTniversity, Maturity, Life, and Your God. The concluding phase of the year ' s program started on April 20. The visiting speaker was Dr. Kirtley F. Mather, Professor Emeritus at Harvard LTniversity. As a theme for the final I.C.L. program of the academic year, the committee selected “Religion and Science.” The past year ' s program was considered as being one of the finest ever held at Muhlenberg.

Jntercollegiate Conference on Government Officers President James Corgee Vice President Ronald Schlittler Secretary-Treasurer Edward Steiger Advisor Mr. Andrew Bullis I.C.G. is an association of students interested in political science. The club on Muhlenberg campus is a member of a state political science society consisting of chapters from about sixty colleges and universities. Each year there is a state-wide meeting of all the chapters in Harrisburg. This group sits in the state education building as a model legislative assembly, and is organized with all the mechanics used by actual government legislatures. This past year the Muhlenberg delegation of twenty-five was able to have one bill passed through the general assembly, and negotiated to have one of its members elected to the position of director of the Northeast Pennsylvania region of I.C.G. This delegation was headed by Jim Corgee, who was instrumental in effecting working agreements with other schools, in order to promote the political interests of the College delegation at the convention.

Cardinal Key The Cardinal Key Society was founded at Muhlenberg on May 28, 1940 by six members of the class of 1942 who thought that an organization for service to the college and for extending of good will to visitors on campus should definitely be estab- lished. Since its conception, the Cardinal Key has tried to pro- mote a greater Muhlenberg. The Society was originated with the purpose of creating in the minds of underclassmen the im- portance of service. Basically this honorary society consists of seven members from each of the three upper classes, with seven Freshmen being elected after a pledgeship in their first semester. The Cardinal Key men usher at special chapel services. Civic Little Theater plays. Mask and Dagger productions, the Movie Series and the Sunday Concert Series. This year they also served as ushers at the Fred Waring Concert and the Dave Brubeck Concert. Through all these activities Cardinal Key men strive to serve Muhlenberg in any possible way and to further a lasting favorable impression with all visitors that come to Muhlenberg. 67 Officers President John Hopper Vice President Richard Beach Secretary-Treasurer Albert Zeiner Advisor Dr. Claude Dierolf First Row: W.

Chapel Choir Many hours of work, satisfaction, and pleasure constituted the program of the Muhlenberg College Chapel Choir during the 1954-55 college year. Practicing two or three times a week, the choir received no scholastic credit. However, the choir members profited in other ways, among them by singing with others to the glory of God, by participating in good fellowship with persons of similar interests, by seeing various parts of the East through the choir trips, and by partaking of the many good meals served to the choir by the various host churches. Under the direction of Mr. Ludwig Lenel, the choir pre- sented many Sunday and week-day concerts besides appearing regularly at chapel services. The tradition of a full schedule, which developed since the organization of the first chapel choir in 1931, was therefore upheld. Concert trips to Hamburg, Schuyl- kill Haven, Royersford, Laureldale, Minersville, Friedensville, Weatherly, Willow Grove, and Pottstown, Pennsylvania; Newark and Atlantic City, New Jersey were included in the choir itiner- ary. Highlights of the season included a television appearance, the annual joint Christmas concert with the Cedar Crest College Choir, and the concert at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey, where the choir sang in connection with the annual Protestant Preach- ing Mission held there, and where the choir enjoyed its largest audience of the year — approximately 1,000 persons. The year was closed with an outing held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Lenel, who served as hosts to the choir members. The annual banquet was held at Shankweiler ' s Inn at which service awards were pre- sented to qualifying members. Officers Manager Kenneth M. Trexler Assistant Managers.... C.

Mask and Dagger is the training outlet for all students who are interested in any phase of play production. This organization has as its purpose the ideal of arousing interest in dramatics among the students. Each year, the Society produces one play each semester, and students are thereby af- forded the opportunity of coming in contact with the various phases of the theater: acting, make up, stage and lighting tech- nique, publicity, costumes and casting. The first production of the 1954-55 college year was William Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew,” starring a new fresh- man actor, James McConnell. The second semester brought to the campus a production of “The Shrike,” with Fred Grosse playing the lead role. Both plays were under the direction of Dr. Andrew Erskine. In conjunction with the M.C.A., the M D also produced “Murder in the Cathedral.” 70 Seated: A. Schuster. J. Corgee. D. Becker; Second Roiv: A. Lintner. S. Jacobs, J. Strine, G. Hornstein, J.

Inter-collegiate debating, introduced at Muhlenberg in 1924 is directed by the Council. The group is coached by Dr. Andrew Erskine of the English Department. Membership in the organiza- tion is limited to participants in at least one varsity debate or one oratorical contest. This year the Council was responsible for sponsoring the de- bates on “Should Red China be accepted into the U.N.” which was televised from Muhlenberg on the Edward R. Murrow tele- vision show over the C.B.S. network. The debaters have regular- ly participated in collegiate debate tournaments held in the Eastern United States. 0 fficers Preside nt James Corgee Vice President Len Vinnick Secretary David Becker Treasurer Albert Schuster Advisor Dr. Andrew Erskine 71 4 •. « wBSmSm .1 12 j- .

Under the direction of Fred Grosse, student conductor, the band was pres- ent at all football games and pep rallies, besides playing for the Homecoming Day Pajama Parade, the Allentown Hallowe’en Parade, and the annual Boy Scout pilgrimage to the college cam- pus. Clarence Simmons, who has won national recognition for his baton twirling skill, added color and talent to the band through his versatile performances. Perhaps the most successful event of the year was the Home- coming Day performance during the halftime of the Franklin and Marshall football game. Much to the consternation of loyal Muh- lenberg fans, only three players marched on the field. After a trumpet fanfare, approximately thirty shabbily dressed “bums” appeared also to add to a merry-making scene. Soon tbe aggre- gate group moved into position, and, much to the delight of the spectators, performed various drills with appropriate music. 0 fficers President Vice President Len V innick Secretary Treasurer Members C.

The primary purpose of the organization is to assist in the development of collegiate athletics as well as sponsoring social functions through- out the year. The club proposes to promote a more jovial feeling among the members of the various athletic squads, to discourage athletes from breaking training rules, to raise the academic stand- ing of its members, and to strive for high standards of sports- manship. During the fall of the 1954-1955 school year, the club gave a very informal dance titled the “Turkey Trot.” The affair was a splendid success. Also undertaken during the first semester was the annual collection for the Community Chest. The organ- ization rounded out the year with its well-attended social party and gave assistance in the annual All-Sports Banquet. First Row: H. Kreutzberg, A. Corneliess, V. Osadchy, W. Keeny.

Reed The Muhlenberg jazz Society is a new organization on campus, having been set up in November, 1954 through the efforts of Bill Rutsch assisted by Dr. John Reed. Membership is open to any matriculated Muhlenberg student who shows an inter- est in jazz. The Society is dedicated to serving the college and its students by promoting jazz music on campus through the medium of jazz concerts. The Jazz Society presented its first concert in Memorial Hall on February 8. 1955. Featured was one of the top modern jazz artists, Dave Brubeck and his quartet. The concert was suc- cessful in more ways than one: besides providing the best enter- tainment for the students and faculty of Muhlenberg, the organi- zation discovered a surprisingly large group of jazz admirers in the Lehigh Valley. The Society sponsored another concert in the Spring of 1955. Miles Davis, Teddy Charles, and Jimmy McPartlin were the feature attractions. The success of this year’s Society has left hopes for bigger and better concerts in the coming years. Seated: I. Kerson, W. Rutsch. R. Alge. Standing: R. Smith. J. Reinheckel. R. Quinn, J. Hopper, G.

Sociological Society The Muhlenberg Sociological Society was organized in April 1950 to provide a closer fellowship among students inter- ested in sociology. Various phases of sociology are presented at the monthly meetings by members and guest speakers in an at- tempt to create an understanding of the significance of the study and to develop a more scientific attitude toward social issues which concern citizenship in a democracy. During the college year, the Society sponsored two motion pictures: “That Boy Joe” and “Dead End.” Both motion pictures were shown in order to more fully explain various phases of juvenile delinquency. In March, the Society made its annual trip to New York City where it visited Believue Hospital. Sea- men’s Church Institute, and the Home Term Court. The annual banquet terminated the activities of the year. Guest speaker for the affair was the Reverend William Ward, former advisor of the Society. 0 fficers President Paul H.

The Pre-Medical Society was founded in 1931 by Dr. John V. Sliankweiler, ' 21. Its purpose is to bring the medical profes- sion closer to pre-medical students by securing prominent lec- turers in the medical field and presenting programs of interest to students planning to enter the profession of medicine. Eligi- bility for the society is met by the following requirements: a stu- dent must have intentions of entering the medical profession, must select courses in his sophomore year requisite for entrance into medical school, and must maintain at least a “C” average in freshman chemistry. The main event of the 1954-1955 year for the Society was the two day trip to New York City at which time the New York University anti Cornell Medical colleges were visited. Also high- lighting the year was the presence of outstanding physicians who spoke on their various specialties at the regular meetings of the society. Some of these men were Dr. Brook Roberts, a member of the admissions committee at the University of Pennsylvania Medical college; Dr. Dominic Donio, physiotherapist from Sacred Heart hospital in Allentown; and Dr. C. Merrill Leister, a special- ist in leukemia. The annual banquet of the Pre-Medical Societies of The Colleges in Lehigh Valley was held at Moravian College and was well attended by members of the Muhlenberg organiza- tion.

Membership is not limited to science majors; any Muhlenberg student is eligible for membership. The Club, which meets monthly, endeavors to bring out- standing personalities in education, research, and industry in the scientific field to the campus in order to present short talks on various aspects of science. Such meetings serve to acquaint future scientists with the obstacles which they may expect in their future held of endeavor. Topics which were discussed during the school year were: “What is Your Future in Science,” “Astrophysics.” “Cosmology.” “Running Around in Circles,” “Quality Control. " “Constella- tions,” and “Structure of the Outer Atmosphere. " One of the highlights of the year was a student participation meeting at which several members of tbe Club presented talks on original research work. The Club also sponsored tours of Fisher Scientific Instru- ments, Bethlehem Steel, and Johns-Manville Corporation. A ban- quet concluded this year ' s activities.

Commuters ’ Club The Commuters ' Club was formed at Muhlenberg during the spring semester of 1950 by approximately fifty town students. The purpose of the organization is to unite the Commuters, both socially and extra-curricularly, in order that they may gain the most of campus life which is possible under the strained program of a Commuter. After a slight dormant period during the past two years, the club was vigorously revitalized this year under the capable direction of senior member Robert Lessel. The club painted and refurnished its room in the Student Center. Included in the furnishings of the room were a piano and dart board which received much use by the members. The high point of the organization’s social calendar was an informal dance held in the Student Center. The affair proved very inspiring since it was excellently attended by the Com- muters. Although this organization is still young, it has grown in prestige so that the Commuters are becoming known on the campus. Many of the members are active at Muhlenberg in sports, class officerships. Student Council, social and honorary fraternities, and departmental clubs. Officers President Robert Lessel Vice President Robert Keys Secretary Donald McCain Treasurer William CAick Advisor Mr. H.

Psychology Club ill . !r Muhlenberg’s Psychology Club was founded in October of 1947 under the guidance of Dr. David K. Spelt. The Club en- deavors to meet the need of students who are interested in extra curricular work in psychology. Club meetings are held bi-monthly and field trips are arranged. Members of the Club must be ac- cepted psychology majors, or must have completed nine semes- ter hours of study in the Psychology Department. The program of the past year emphasized the discussion of the new developments in psychology. The bi-monthly meetings were informal get-togethers at which time new books were pre- sented for discussion. Also investigated were new theories which were taken from recent papers. The Club concentrated mostly, however, on discussing the part which psychology is playing in modern life.

The purpose of the Verein has always been to further an interest in and a knowledge of the vast body of German culture as well as to provide a practical chance for the members to use the German language. Traditional meetings of the Verein are the Damenabend, Weihnachtsfest, and Ausflug. The Verein sponsers an open meet- ing each year, often presenting a modern German movie or play. The regular meetings of the Verein are held bi-monthly, with speakers, movies and slides, singing, and plays, capped by re- freshments and a social hour. A large number of the meetings this year were held in conjunction with the Language Club of Cedar Crest College, a new idea in the history of the Verein. Membership is open to interested students who do superior work in German 22 and to those who take advanced courses in German. A colorful traditional initiation ceremony inducts new members into the Verein. Faculty members of the Verein, in addition to Professor Wood, the advisor, include Professors Meyer and Staack.

J J i In the opening game of the season, the Mules were handed a sound thumping when the Bucknell Bisons romped by a score of 33-13 in the annual Chocolate Bowl game played at Hershey. Berg was completely out- played in every respect by the powerful grid machine from Lewisburg. Trailing 26-0 at halftime, the Mules made a fine comeback and outscored the Bisons in the second half 13-6. Paul Truran and Bill Keeny were the outstanding performers for Berg. Keeny along with Jack McDonald scored the Berg Touchdowns. Following the disasterous jinx of old, the Mules lost to a poor Albright squad by a score of 12-7 at Reading in the Pretzel Bowl. Playing an unenviable brand of ball, Berg missed many scoring opportunities and played a poor defensive game. The Lions scored first and led 6-0 at the half. Converted tackle Tony Saddler scored Berg ' s lone touchdown. Paul Truran and Lee Hoffman played good defensive ball for Tom Triplett’s club.

From the outset it was a complete case of brilliant tackling and quick opening offensive plays on the part of the Berg machine. On defense, Ascione, Truran, Werkheiser and Hoffman led the attack, causing the hapless Leopards to fumble no less than 13 times. Kreutzberg, Keeny, Saddler and McDonald led the Triplett tutored gridders on of- fense. Harry Kreutzberg, playing a brilliant game at halfback, scored Berg’s first score, in the second half, Berg started fast, and when Lee Hoffman recovered a Lafayette fumble it didn’t take Frank Lerro long to score the second touchdown. Quarterbacks Bill Keeny and George Hageage accounted for the other two counters. Muhlenberg’s revamped aggregation traveled to Leb- anon Valley to smother the low Flying Dutchmen 32-0. Jack McDonald put on a one man show as he scored three touchdowns and annexed 104 yards from scrim- mage to pace the Mules. The Berg squad had now won the first of their “Bowl” games this season — the Bologna Bowl. Lerro and Keeny scored the other Berg touch- downs. On defense the entire Muhlenberg line, led by Lee Hoffman, was a stonewall to the Flying Dutchmen’s backs. Berg’s two game winning streak was abruptly halted as they absorbed a 34-0 shellacking at the hands of a fair Bullet club at historical Gettysburg. The Mules were completely outclassed in the fracas which saw the “Old Tin Cup” trophy go to Gettysburg. Jack McDonald played a fine game as did Tom Naratil, Paul Truran and Lee Hoffman. Muhlenberg’s unpredictable Mules pulled one of the biggest upsets of the season as they tumbled Delaware from the ranks of the unbeaten with a hairline 14-13 triumph on a cold, muddy Muhlenberg field. A spec- tacular 4th down, 33 yard pass play, from quarterback Bill Keeny to Tony Frey, in the dying minutes of the fourth period, provided Muhlenberg with the tying touch- down. Minutes later Tony Saddler kicked the all-impor- tant extra point. Jackie McDonald, sparkplug halfback, suffered a broken left arm in the first period. Tony Saddler played a brilliant offensive and defensive game Lerro up the middle Mule’s secondary moves in and received the coveted Maxwell Award. Bill Keeny scored the first Mule touchdown, which gave Muhlen- berg an early lead. Lee Hoffman. Stan Vnuk, Frank Gutierrez and Dick Werkheiser, along with the rest of the Muhlenberg team, played a great defensive game. Tony Frey and Bill Keeny played good offensive hall. Muhlenberg traveled to Taylor Stadium to engage the Lehigh Engineers in a game which marked the end of grid relations between the two schools. Completely dom- inating play in the first half Muhlenberg walked off the field with a 20-6 lead. Saddler pounced on a Lehigh fumble for the first score and Tony Frey added another. The final Berg score came with Harry Kreutzberg bitting paydirt. In the second half the Engineers quarterback Tom Gloede filled the air with passes and when the final whistle blew the score was knotted at 20-20. Lee Hoff- man and Pete Ascione along with Paul Billy were the defensive stars. Tony Frey played another brilliant game and was nominated for the Lfnsung Hero of the Week Award. Completing its first winning season in six years, Tom Triplett’s proteges humbled the Diplomats of F M col- lege by a score of 33-6, at the Berg field in a Homecoming day game. Although down 6-0 at the end of the first RALPH DESTEFANO LEE HOFFMAN period Berg came to life and took a 7-6 half time lead. Bob Lee sparked our efforts with a dazzling 55 yard dash to spark Berg’s second half assault. Lee. for his fine play, was nominated for the Unsung Hero Award. Tony Sad- dler scored 15 points as Berg rolled on. Others scoring for Berg were Dick Werkheiser and Bob Gimble. The entire Berg bench was cleared by Tom Triplett. Playing good ball for the Mules were Lee Hoffman. Tom Naratil. Pete Ascione, and in general the entire Berg squad. Seniors playing their final game for Muhlenberg were Pete Ascione, Lee Hoffman.

Freshman coach, Bob Mirth and his football squad made their debut against a strong Lafayette squad and went down to a 14-12 de- feat, in a game highlighted by long runs. Emil Jackson returned a Lafayette kickoff for 80 yards and the Mules first score. McCutcheon scored Berg ' s other touchdown on a short thrust. Bob Fried played a great defensive game for the Little Mules. In the second game of the season the Little Yearlings romped to a 25-0 win over Perkiomen Prep. Dick Cornish and Paul Whitcroft teamed up to lead the Frosh squad as each scored two touchdowns. A combination of a hard charging line and fast run- ning backs helped the Muhlenberg Frosh to romp over the New York Military Academy eleven 25-0 in the Mules final game of the season. Tony Caporale, Buddy Mc- Cutcheon, Roger Keehn and Bob Fried scored touch- downs in leading the Cardinal and Grey to victory.

The usually thin squad was made thinner by the new NCAA rule preventing freshmen from participating in varsity sports. Coach Harold Parker, beginning his first year as cross country coach at Muhlenberg, set up two teams from the equal number of freshmen and upper classmen that turned out to run. After a week of practice together on Muh- lenberg’s 4.3 mile course at Cedar Park, tbe freshmen proved to have more talent than the varsity endurance men. The freshman squad won two of its three meets, heat- ing the Lafayette and Albright frosh, hut losing to Le- high’s yearlings. Bill Kile was undefeated in the three contests, while Jerry Slack finished second to Kile in two of them. Ron Moxey and Bill Holst were also consistent in finishing among the top five scorers in the two and a half mile freshman races. The quartet of runners will add greatly to the 1955 varsity, for which they will he eligible as sophomores. The senior squad dropped its first two meets to F. M. and Lafayette, as none of the Mule harriers could finish among the first five places. Berg took fifth and sixth spots in the Lehigh meet at Bethlehem, hut suffered its third loss, 17-40. Albright swamped the Mules, 18-41, as John Keyser prevented a Mule shutout by taking third place in the meet. Keyser, Chuck Rauch, and Wally Loy scored regularly among the top ten places. Muhlenberg’s varsity did poorly in the Middle At- lantic run, even though the meet was held at Cedar Park. However the freshmen came out fifth best among the ten college freshman squads represented in the meet. Jerry Slack and Bill Kile captured fourth and eighth spots, respectively, among the fifty or more competitors in the freshman race. Bottom Row — left to right: Holst, Kile, Rauch, Druckenmiller.

Coach ‘Bud Nevins had to respect the hooting of anyone who turned out for the soccer tryouts. Suffering heavy losses by way of graduation and military service, the thin team lacked not oidy depth but also experience. As a result the squad suffered a devastating 0-9 record. The season opener was probably tbe best game of the entire soccer season. The game was played on our home field against a perennially strong Swarthmore squad. Although the spirited Mules retained their de- termination to the final whistle, they took the short end of a 4-2 score. A future star was produced at the beginning of the second quarter when Harry Blank, a diminutive reserve, crawled under a host of players from both teams directly in front of the Swarthmore goal and booted the first goal of the Muhlenberg season. The second goal was scored by Bill Rutsch in the last quarter. Goalie Marv Cress- man was the defensive worker as he strived to stop the constant onslaught of the visiting booters. fc b The rest of the season was a form of retrogression with very few highpoints. George Lea and Hans Peckmann brought honor to the squad when they were chosen to the All-Eastern College Soccer Team. With the departure of seniors Cressman, Lea, Peck- mann and Rutsch, Nevins will face the difficult task of replacing these senior booters and moulding another squad.

The winter of the 54-’55 sports season saw the Muhlen- berg College Fencing Team enter into its second year of intercollegiate competition. Even though Coach “Andy” Erskine had a squad of nine returning lettermen. the team was comparatively inexperienced, since most of the men had never fenced before entering Berg. On Feb. 5, Muhlenberg opened its fencing schedule with a match against Temple University in Memorial Hall. Muhlenberg lost 16-11, even though they captured a decided advantage in both Saber and Epee. Temple piled up the points in foil by allowing only one Muhlen- berg victory, to George Goldenbaum. In the Saber event Jake Huegel made a clean sweep by winning all three of his bouts. “Ace” Adams took two bouts and Carl Schim- mel one. Epee men. Bill Wormley and Dave Washa- baugh, each won two bouts, while Joel Carpenter picked up one. The following weekend the team traveled to Haver- ford College for the second match of the season. Again the Mules were handed a loss, this time 17-10. The Epee team proved themselves the stalwart of the squad with Washabaugh and Wormley each winning two bouts and Carpenter one. In Saber, Adams won two and Huegel added another. Foil, again was the weakest part of the squad; Goldenbaum won the team ' s only two foil bouts. In the final match of the season, the Stallion Fencing Club of Long Island came to Muhlenberg. Coach Ers- kine’s fencers managed to win their first match of the season and also the first match in Muhlenberg ' s short fencing history. In Foil. Goldenbaum won all three of his bouts, and Adams fencing Foil for the first time, won two bouts. Wormley remained a constant two point win- ner in Epee and Washabaugh took one. Carpenter, how- ever, won all three of his Epee bouts. The Saber men wrapped things up with Adams and Schimmel adding two points apiece and Huegel another. After the close of the regular season Muhlenberg en- tered, for the first time, the M.A.S.C.A.C. fencing tourna- ment held at Johns Hopkins University. Muhlenberg fin- ished in fifth position. Washabaugh was Muhlenberg s top scorer with four points. Goldenbaum and Adams each had two points and Huegel one. On the whole the season was considered a success. Muhlenberg won its first fencing match and the team members gained valuable experience throughout the season. 91 Basketball Kneeling — left to right: Kynett, mgr., Osadchv, Gemma, We.coe, Booth, Neville, Roman, mgr.

Coming out of basketball retirement, Crum accepted the charges of a sophomore dominated squad. The only upperclassmen were Gerry Neville, the lone senior, and juniors A1 Booth and Vince Osadchy. Because Neville was handicapped by a recurring knee injury, the early season starting team usually consisted of five sophomores. As the Mules progressed through their 14-11 schedule, they acquired the name “Amazing Sophomores”. Coach Crum did a magnificant job of juggling his lineup in the process of learning the abilities of his players. An all sophomore five consisting of Bill Smith, Cardy Gemma, Denny Roth, Bobby Gall, and Don Kurz took the floor to launch the 1954-55 basketball season against Temple at Memorial Hall. A large, enthusiastic crowd watched the Bergmen sufTer a 78-69 defeat. Each of the Berg starting players scored in double figures in the “experimental” contest. The Mules bounced back from their Temple defeat and slaughtered F and M, 97-72. Husky Dick Leber led the scoring parade with 21 markers, while Gall followed closely with 19 points. By taking an early lead. Coach Crum was able to substitute freely. All fourteen players saw action. After taking a slim 35-31 halftime margin, the Berg- men put on a heavy barrage of scoring to down Albright, 93-73 . Gall led the scoring with 23 points, while Vince Osadchy hit for 16. The Mules’ second defeat of the year was suffered at the hands of Penn, 71-52. This was one of the Mules poorest nights, as no one was able to hit consistently, while also exhibiting poor ball handling. A four game .winning streak was started when the Bergmen edged out a 73-71 victory over the Engineers of Lehigh. After trailing by 19 points, the Allentownians came back to lead by a single point with less than a minute to play. Bill Smith cashed in a foul to give Berg their two point margin. A second before the final buzzer sounded, Eddie Cahn tossed a lay-up shot, which drew screams from the capacity crowd, as it rounded the basket, but dropped off the side. On their journey to Moravian, the Crummen returned with a 69-62 win, which was not won without a fight, as the Greyhounds displayed one of their best teams in several years. The next two victories were won quite easily as Muhlenberg beat St. Joseph’s 92-80, and Bucknell, 96- 74. In the Hawks encounter. Gall tossed in 28 points and then threw in 26 against the Bisons. Senior Captain Gerry Neville Coach Crum gives instructions during a timeout 93 Jump pass by Bob Gall After a four game winning streak, the Mules traveled to Philadelphia for an encounter with high ranking La- Salle, but came home on the short end of an 88-79 score. The first half was a see-saw battle throughout as the lead changed hands several times. In the second half the Ex- plorers went into a zone defense and thwarted the Muh- lenberg scoring power as Gall scored only 6 of his 28 points in this half. Muhlenberg rang up another win, 99-77, when they traveled to Rutgers. Gall and Leber led the scoring with 20 and 14 points respectively, in a well distributed offense. The Mules dropped their next two contests to Lafay- ette and Temple, by scores of 84-70 and 72-62. The Bergmen fought valiantly in the Leopard battle, hut could not cope with the scoring trio of Y oung-Knapp-Peters. Gemma rolled up 24 points, connecting on his one hand push shot. He also worked a number of sensational pass- ing plays with Gall, who tossed in 14 points. by Hal Lear and the Owl squad. The well balanced at- tack of the Mules was not enough to stop the Temple assault in the “football " game. Three records were broken by Muhlenberg as they trounced Hofstra, 104-85, in a between-semesters contest. The 104 points set a team high record for Memorial Hall. The second record was set by Bobby Gall, who after sitting out the Temple game, notched 31 points to break the Hall record of 30 points held by Lear of Temple. Gall ' s fifteen converted foul shots was the third record- breaking total. Denny Roth and Cardy Gemma continued to improve offensively as they gathered 23 and 21 points, respectively. An over-confident squad of Crum men had to come back from a 40-30 half time deficit to defeat Scranton, 91-85. The second half team looked like an entirely new squad as they began to display terrific team play. The win over Gettysburg, 93-72, again gave the Muhlenberg second team a chance to play more than usual. Bob Gall was high once again with 27 points. Seton Hall’s zone defense and effective offensive drive Don Kurz tripped up Bill Smith and a jump shot Without the services of Gall, the Mules were subdued Tom Gola brings out the ball of the Explorers and Bobby Gall also scored 18 markers. Denny Both played one of bis better games as be re- bounded effectively against the taller Gola. Muhlenberg lost their fifth consecutive game when they traveled to the Penn Palestra for the second game of a college double-header and were ‘ ' frozen out” by illanova. The W ildcats took a commanding 10-0 lead early in the game, but the Mules fought back to take a slim lead late in the first half. The Villanovans put on a scoring spree to take a 49-35 lead in the second half, but Roth led an assault to cut the lead to 51-45 with nine minutes to play. At this point, the Wildcats put on a freeze against the Berg zone defense for seven minutes and thwarted the Mules ' efforts. The Mules broke their five game losing streak by beat- ing St. Joseph’s, 87-80, at Convention Hall. Gall and Roth supplied the offensive power by scoring 21 and 20 points, respectively. proved too difficult for the Mules to handle as they lost by a 66-57 count. Denny Roth garnered 20 for the locals. A well-balanced Lebanon Valley attack coupled with Berg’s inaccuracy at the foul line proved to be the decisive factors in the nip and tuck upset of the Dutch- men over the Cardinal and Gray, 83-82. Lebanon Valley was outscored 25-33 from the field, but tossed in 33-of 41 foul tries to subdue the Mules. Bobby Gall regained shooting form as he cashed in for 21 points. After trailing, 38-37, at half time, Lafayette fought back to dump the Bergmen, 71-60. With five minutes to play in the game, the Eastonians began to outrun the visitors and kept the Bergmen’s offense and defense dis- organized. A sell-out crowd jammed Memorial Hall to witness the offensive power of All-American Tom Gola as LaSalle handed the Mules an 85-71 defeat. Instead of seeing a highscorer, however, the fans watched a terrific game of team work. Although he was not effective offensively, the well coordinated sky-scraper passed off beautifully and rebounded well while netting 18 points. Greenberg Neville in for a steal Osadchy drives in for a deuce DON KURZ BOB GALL DEL PARK After winning a close game in the first Lehigh en- counter, everyone anticipated another close one with the Bethlehem lads. The Engineers, however, took this game, 69-64, in an overtime period. Denny Roth tied the game with a tap-in as the final buzzer sounded, but Eddie Cahn calmly converted 5 out of 6 foul attempts in tbe extra quarter to provide tbe winning margin. The Mules finished the 1954-55 season by scoring victories over Gettysburg, Bueknell, and Delaware. In the G ' burg contest. Gall and Neville led an assault to secure a 75-68 victory. Each scored 16 points in the game. A fighting Bison team visited Muhlenberg but was unable to cope with the sharp shooting Mules as they succumbed, 96-74, in the Bergmen’s final home appear- ance. The main feature of the game was the scoring of Denny Roth and Cardy Gemma as they both passed the 300 mark. Gerry Neville once again displayed his de- fensive wizardry and received a tremendous ovation when withdrawn from the game late in the contest. In the season final, a flock of Delaware Blue Hens would not stop fighting as they fell to the Cardinal and Grey, 77-71. Cardy Gemma topped the Berg scorers with 22 points, while Bob Gall followed closely with 21. This game ended the collegiate basketball career of Senior Gerry Neville. JOHN WESCOE RON HOEHMANN VINCE OSADCHY BILL SMITH The 1954-55 basketball campaign was the best season that the Mules experienced in four years, as they rang up a 14-11 record. However, rather than the won-lost record, what really was outstanding during the year was the terrific team play which was exhibited, as no less than three cagers scored over 300 points. Bobby Gall finished the season with a total of 459 points and a 19.1 per game average. Roth collected a total of 329 points, while Gemma accumulated 328. The next two highest scorers were Don Kurz at 214 and Bill Smith with 211 points. Also of great interest during the season was the im- provement of Roth as the season progressed, the sudden find of Del Park who started his first game against St. Joseph’s, and the terrific combo of Gemma passing to the driving Gall and vice versa. Despite the fact that he ranked in sixth position in the scoring column with 160 points, the real spark-plug of the squad was the only senior member on the squad, Gerry Neville. When on the court, Neville seldom left the floor without receiving an applause for his defensive work. The toughest assignments usually fell upon him, but his quick hands broke up many scoring plays for the opponents. Neville was a crowd pleaser, a defensive wizard, set shot artist and also a gentleman, both on and off the hardwood.

Muhlenberg organized its first freshman basketball team this year, as the NCAA rule making freshmen in- eligible for varsity sports became effective, segregating the yearlings and varsity into two squads. Coach Rich- ard Schmidt, a graduate of Muhlenberg, began his first season as a basketball coach at Muhlenberg. The freshman squad won thirteen of its first four- teen contests to guarantee a successful initial season. The squad closed out the season with an impressive 15-4 record, overpowering the freshman squads of Temple. Penn, Lebanon Valley and Delaware, as well as winning from the Albright and Moravian Junior Varsity squads and from numerous city league teams. After sweeping seven consecutive victories, the freshmen lost to LaSalle at Philadelphia, 78-74. Back on the winning trail, the hustling courtmen started another winning streak, this one good for six victories. However in the last part of the season, the yearlings lost three games in a row to Lafayette, LaSalle, and Lehigh, the latter two by only three points. Two victories over Milkovic and Delaware’s freshmen completed the successful campaign. Frank Neely and Clint Jeffries, high scoring duo from New York City, were the two outstanding figures on the freshman squad. Neely averaged 21.7 points in three contests for a season ' s total of 390 markers. Teammate Jeffries scored 352 points in nineteen games for an aver- age of 18.5 points per game, but was even more effective in rebounding, using his long legs as a pair of springs.

In their first contest of the year the Muhlenberg wrestling team absorbed a 26 to 10 lacing at the bands of Colgate University in the Muhlenberg field house. Frank Gutierrez and Paul Billy were the only Mule men able to pick up wins as they pinned their opponents. A good Temple team traveled to ’Berg’s Memorial Hall and went home with a 21 to 15 victory. Winning for Muhlenberg were Carl Schnee who picked up a for- feit decision. Frank Gutierrez wrestling in the 177 pound class pinned bis opponent, while heavyweight Paul Billy duplicated his teammate’s feat.

The Cardinal and Gray grapplers garnered their first win of the season as they pinned a 19 to 9 loss on Swarthmore college. Stu Godin, Bernie Smith, and Paul Billy won decisions. Gutierrez continued his winning ways as he pinned his opponent in the first period. Marv Cressman, moved up to the heavyweight class, picked up five points as his opponent was unahle to continue. The Muhlenberg matmen traveled to Haverford to gain a 16 to 14 win in a thrilling contest. Don Grammes trailing with 5 seconds left in the bout tallied 3 points to take a 7 to 5 decision. Frank Gutierrez once again pinned his opponent. Larry Paul gained a fall and Art Franzblau chipped in with a decision. At Memorial Hall the highly touted Lafayette wrestling squad defeated the Mule grapplers by a 22 to 6 score. Larry Paul won his second bout of the season by a 10-5 decision. Frank Gutierrez ran his win streak to 16 in a row with a convincing decision. Coach Ernie Fellows’ squad brought their record to 3 wins and 5 losses by beating a fair Delaware club. 21 to 13. Don Grammes and Art Franzblau gained pins while Stu Godin took a 5 point forfeit. Gutierrez and Billy had little trouble decisioning their foes. Frank Gutierrez, Paul Billy and Don Grammes pinned their Ursinus foes, hut it wasn ' t enough as the Ursinus lightweights built up an unsurmountahle 23 point lead to down the Mule matmen 23 to 15 in a meet at Ursinus before some 1500 screaming fans. In their last dual competition of the 1955 season the Cardinal and Grey charges traveled to Wilkes-Barre where they tasted a stinging 22 to 8 defeat at the hands of Wilkes College. Paul Billy won by a fall and Frank Gutierrez eked out a decision to bring home the only points for Berg. In their final competition of the season, the Mule Grapplers traveled to Gettysburg to take part in the Middle Atlantic Conference Tournament and through the efTorts of Frank Gutierrez and Paul Billy, the Cardinal and Gray Wrestling team captured fourth place. “Guts " Gutierrez for the second consecutive year became Middle Atlantic Champion in the 157 pound class and Paul Billy captured a second place in the 177 pound division. The Middle Atlantics marked the end of a successful season for Coach Ernie Fellows and his Mule Grapplers. Although the season was not a winning one. it brought forth such outstanding wrestlers as Middle Atlantic Cham- pion Frank Gutierrez and runnerup Paul Billy; and gave Coach Fellows a chance to catch a glimpse of what is to come in the following seasons.

In the opening game of the season, the Mule diamond- men were sunk by the Midshipmen of Navy, 6-2. Frank Sproviero pitched good ball, but was the victim of four Mule miscues. The Mules were able to collect only four hits off the Navy pitching, two of them being by left fielder Marty Gilbert. In a game baited by rain at the end of 7 2 innings, the Muhlenberg nine picked up its first victory of the " 55 season as they defeated St. Joseph’s. 4-2. Frank Sproviero picked up the victory for the Mules. Lefty Cornelius and Sproviero were the batting stars for the victors. Tony Saddler pitched the Mules to a 3-2 victory over Gettysburg as he limited the Bullets to six hits while striking out 15. Gilbert and Bob Fritsch accounted for four of the Mules six hits as they picked up two apiece. The Muhlenberg nine absorbed their second defeat of the season at the hands of the Quakers from Penn. 4-0. Sproviero and Leber were the batting stars as they picked up two hits apiece. In the following game, LaSalle pounded out 10 hits and scored 12 runs to defeat Tony Saddler and Muhlen- berg, 12-3. The Mules were able to pick up only two hits and showed very little signs of fight as they dropped their third game of the year. 100 The Muhlenberg diamondmen travelled to Lehigh and belted out 12 hits, but lost, 5-3, as errors aided the Engineers in handing the Mules their third consecutive defeat. Frank Sproviero and Tom Weber led the Mules in hitting. The Muhlenberg losing streak was ended at 3 games when they hung a 7-2 defeat on the Albright Lions. Sproviero won his second game of the season as he obtained able hitting support from Cardy Gemma, who collected four hits and Lefty Cornelius, who had 2 hits, one of them being a homerun. Lafayette picked up its eighth win of the season as they swamped Coach Dick Fox’s nine, 11-3. Pitcher Frank Sproviero once again was the hatting star. The Moravian Greyhounds ran to an 8-6 victory over Muhlen- berg. Sproviero led the Mules in hitting and Tony Saddler pitched good ball as he held the Greyhounds scoreless for five and one-third innings, after relieving losing pitcher Sproviero. Muhlenberg found itself with another three-game los- ing streak on the line as they lost, 12-2, to a poor F M team. Fd Stieger started his first game for Muhlenberg, but failed to last the first inning as Jay Cook came in in relief. Tom King of Bucknell pitched one hit hall to defeat Tony Saddler, 2-0. It was the Mules’ fourth consecutive loss. Saddler pitched well enough to win as he struck out 11 men and allowed only six hits. Frank Peters picked up the lone hit, a double. In a comedy of errors, the Mules allowed 18 runners to cross the plate as they bowed to Lafayette, 18-4. With- out the errors, the Mules would have stood a chance of winning as 15 of the runs were unearned. The Cardinal and Grey losing streak was stopped at five games as “King” Saddler hurled a one-hitter to give the Mules a 4-1 victory over the wide-eyed Owls of Temple. The field- ing was above average as only one error was commited, and it was this error which prevented Saddler from re- cording a shutout. The charges of Dick Fox avenged an earlier Moravian defeat by defeating the Greyhounds 5-2 behind the clutch pitching of lefthander Frank Sproviero. Sproviero helped his own cause as he banged out two hits. Tom Weber also contributed to the hitting attack by grabbing two bingles. Frank Peters also got in the scoring attack as he clubbed out his first homerun of the year. Dick Leber’s bases loaded homerun and Tony Sad- dler’s twelfth inning homerun helped Muhlenberg out- slug Lehigh, 14-13, in a 29-hit slugfest. Frank Sproviero. relieving Saddler in the sixth inning, gained his fourth win of the year. Tom Weber and Frank Peters had 7 of Berg’s 19 hits with the latter having three, one of them being a triple. Tony Saddler, with 2 out in the twelfth, hit a no hall and 2 strike count deep to center field for the run that gave Muhlenberg its sixth win of the season. Although this year’s team had a disappointing season, it loses only 2 seniors from the squad, Frank Sproviero and Mike DelTufo. With seven returning starters, next year ' s prospects look bright for a successful season. 101 Track Track Coach Ernie Fellows had a tough job confront- ing him as he attempted to mould a track squad out of a small number of candidates. The ineligibility of Fresh- men to compete in the varsity events left a small squad of sixteen men to carry the burdens of the tough track schedule; at one time during the season the track pro- gram was on the verge of being discontinued. In their initial meet of the season, the Mule cindermen bowed to a strong Albright squad by a score of 89-37. The Cardinal and Grey first places went to Denny Roth in the high jump and Herm Zieger in the pole vault event. Frank Jankowski was high scorer for the Mules as he garnered 1 1 points in a losing cause. The undermanned Mule Thinclads bowed to F M by a 75 to 51 score for their second loss of the young season. Bobby Fee and John Keyser led the Mules on their home track by scoring 13 and 10 points respectively. Fee won the 100 yard dash and broad jump besides placing second in the 220 yard dash. Keyser came in first in both the Mile and Half-mile runs. Ralph DeStefano placed first in the discus throw, while Herm Zieger tied for first place in the pole vault.

Other first places for the Cardinal and Grey were copped by Keyser. De- Stefano, and Clarke Morgan. The powerful Leopards from Lafayette clawed out a decisive 99-27 victory over the Berg Cindermen. Bobby Lee accounted for 11 of Berg’s points as he placed first in the 100 yard dash and second in the 220 yard dash and broad jump. Herm Zieger accounted for a few more points as he ended up in a three way tie for first place in the pole vault. In a triangular meet which was held at the Muhlen- berg oval, the Cardinal and Grey picked up 21% points, while Lehigh was gaining 74% points and Gettysburg was picking up 59. Herm Zieger was the lone Berg track- man to gain a first place as he cleared the pole vault bar with a leap of 11 feet 2 inches. Boh Lee took second place in the broad jump while Harlan Heere, Don Tihan- sky, John Keyser, Len Woodel, and Mel Strouse were also contributing to the point total. Traveling to Delaware, the Mules absorbed an 84-41 shellacking at the hands of a better than average Blue Hen track team. Clarke Morgan placed first in the 100 yard dash and ended up second in the broad jump to lead the Mules in scoring. Ralph DeStefano and Dennv Roth accounted for two more first places as they took the discus and javelin events respectively. In the final meet of the season, the Mule Cindermen, now twelve strong, bowed to a poor Ursinus group of thinclads, 49-76. Although Ernie Fellows " track team lacked depth they managed to s weep the held events with Bob Lee. Len Woodel, Ralph DeStefano, Herm Zieger and Denny Roth all taking first places. Roth was the long Bergman able to pick up two firsts. They came in the javelin and high jump events. Seniors bowing out for the Mules were Jerry Ziener. who placed second in the javelin: Don Tihansky, who took second in the 100 yard dash; and Ralph DeStefano. who placed first in the discus event. 103 Tennis SUMMARY Muhlenberg 6 Gettysburg 3 Muhlenberg 3 Drexel 6 Muhlenberg 4 Albright 5 Muhlenberg 7 St. Joseph’s 2 Muhlenberg 0 Haverford 9 Muhlenberg 0 Swarthmore 9 Muhlenberg 3 Moravian 6 Muhlenberg 2 1 ...

Two wins were recorded by the Mule racquetmen in their first four matches, but a pair of shutouts to Haverford and Swarthmore, nationally ranked among collegiate tennis squads, broke the morale of the courtmen, as they went down to defeat in their last five matches, ending the season at a 2-7 mark. With the graduation of Ron Shane, Marty and Dick Acker, outstanding performers on last year’s winning squad, chances for success in the 1955 season dimmed considerably. The NCAA rule barring freshmen from participating in varsity competition limited possibilities for success also. However, long practice sessions in Memorial Hall and the postponement of two April matches gave the Cardinal and Grey netmen time to work together to form a small hut competitive aggrega- tion. Mike Egan and Jay Krevsky led the squad in victories, each winning more than half of his individual matches. Krevsky and Carl Schnee, a newcomer to the starting lineup, were the most successful in doubles, as they ran up four straight victories working in combination. Prospects for next year’s squad are good, as this year’s freshmen join the team while only one senior leaves. With the return of five experienced starters, the 1956 tennis team should have a winning season. Golf First Row: R. Ohlweiler, W. Haslam, R. Lessel. Second Row: A. D. Mackerel], P. Davidson, F.

Because of the interest and approval shown by the Student Body, girl cheerleaders from Cedar Crest were once again used. Pep Rallies were held frequently during the football season and were climaxed by the bonfire and Pajama Parade before the Homecoming game against Franklin Marshall. A highlight of the season was the great spirit shown by the frosh at the Lafayette game when a little intermission “hat exchanging’’ took place. New a cquisitions this year were megaphones and new sweaters. The annual cheerleading banquet was held on April 21 at the Village Inn and was followed by group bowling. Members of the squad were: Calvin Colarusso, cap- tain; David Miller, and John Simek — all sophomores — and Ron Care, Bob McCombs and Bill Stauffer — all of the class of 58. The girls from Cedar Crest were Rea Koehler, Ginny Lapham, Loretta Reese, June Marsh, Lee Matus, Jan Millar, Bobby Myers, Linda O’Donnell, Connie Sahlin and Barbara Groller.

Parker 106 Intramurals I 108 Lambda Chi Alpha dethroned Sigma Phi Epsilon as the all-around intramural champions in the 1954-55 season by outpointing the second place squad during the basketball season. Both of these fraternities had top- notch teams in the football league and the softball league as they accumulated a high total of points. The football intramural championship was won by Lambda Chi for the second year in a row. In the final game of the season, the winners defeated a strong A.T.O. squad, 13-7. The two year champs were quarterbacked by Jack Russo, who threw touchdown passes to Bill Ingham and Wally Loy in the deciding game. The A.T.O. offense was directed by Lefty Cornieliess and Mel Strouse. The loser’s only touchdown was scored by Frank Jankowski. The closest that the champs came to defeat was a 7-7 tie with Phi Kappa Tau, who showed little strength in several of their other contests. This game was played under the lights and it attracted a large crowd. The feature of the contest was a duel between Bob Fritsch and Russo. Fritsch was caught several times by the charging line of Lambda Chi, but regained lost ground with his speed. The lone touchdowns were scored by Bill Price of Lambda Chi and Ron Wix of Phi Tau. When the I-M basketball season was over, the cham- pion team for the second consecutive year was the M-Club who defeated the Alley Kats, 56-43, in the championship contest. Ed Emory, a transfer student, stole the show by pouring 20 points through the hoop and controlling the backboards for the M-Club. The losers attack was led by Ed Wasmuth with 16 points. Of the three intramural sports, basketball was the most hotly contested league. Besides the league finalists. Lambda Chi and ATO. several independent teams pro- vided the stiff competition through the schedule. These were the Cardinals, the Knights and the G. D. I.’s, the latter holding decisive victories over both ATO and the Alley Kats. Only four court players topped the century mark in scoring, these being Charley Farrel of the runner-up Alley Kats with 124, Ray Croft of the Cardinals, a freshman team with 120, Ed Wasmuth, another Alley Kat, with 115. and Ed Stieger of ATO with 102. The intramural softball season was in operation for four weeks, when it was decided that time would not allow for a completed schedule. In a single round robin playoff, defending champion Sig Ep edged out a 7-5 victory over Lambda Chi behind the hurling of Denny Roth and the clutch hitting of Dick Kinsler. The most outstanding hitting performances were turned in by Ray Croft of Phi Tau and Roger Keehn of Lambda Chi. Croft hit his peak by hitting two grand slam home- runs in one game. Keehn was a consistent power hitter throughout the season for the league runner-ups. Despite their retaining the softball trophy, the failure of Sig Ep to produce a winning basketball team cost them the all-sports trophy which was awarded to Lambda Chi at the Muhlenberg All-Sports varsity banquet. 109 „ i m Honorary fraternities .

Alpha Kappa Alpha, the national honorary philosophy fra- ternity, was founded at Muhlenberg College in 1931 through the efforts of Dr. Russel W. Stine, professor of philosophy at Muhlenberg. It is the first national honorary fraternity to be founded on this campus. Recognizing excellence and interest in the study of philoso- phy, the fraternity seeks to give students an opportunity to learn and discuss more about various phases and systems of philosophy introduced in the classroom. The Alpha Chapter enjoys the generous hospitality of Dr. and Mrs. Stine at whose home the members and interested guests meet bi-monthly to hear philosophical talks and papers presented by outside speakers, members of our own faculty, and students. This year ' s program was high-lighted by the open meeting held in the Student Center at which Dr. Paul Ricouer, a noted philosophy professor at the University of Strasbourg in France, spoke on “A Phase of Christian Existentialism, " and by the annual symposium “The Place of Arts in Contempor ary World. " A better understanding of the cardinal virtues. Goodness, Truth, and Beauty, was sought by the members through their meetings in order that they could learn to live by them.

McCauley Dr. Andrew Erskine Dr. Claude Dierolf The purpose of Alpha Psi Omega is to recognize the merits of any aspiring student of the drama and to foster, encourage, and aid the general production of any theatrical undertaking on the campus. Alpha Psi Omega is an honorary fraternity, and a position on its rolls is a difficult attainment. An actor must earn his by the one and only hard road of service on the stage. To qualify, the understudy must show some laudable efficiency in several departments involved in the production of a show. He must prove himself willing and capable of accepting any role or duty assigned to him, and then performing that assignment with skill and without quarrel. The general creed of Alpha Psi Omega is work, and the furtherance of all that is good and worthy in all fields of the dramatic arts. In its position as a national fraternity, it consti- tutes a bond between our campus and others all over the country. Left to Right: Dr. A. Erskine, J. McCauley, Dr. C.

The fraternity has always attempted to keep alive an interest in the classics and to support an appre- ciative feeling for the ancient languages. Its requirement for membership is one year of study in a classical language (prefer- ably elementary Greek or advanced Latin ), sufficient interest and proficiency in the study of the classics, and good overall academic achievement. The 1954-1935 organization was perhaps the largest and most active chapter in the last decade. The highlights of its pro- gram were: a paper by Mr. William kinter; a public lecture spon- sored by the chapter with Dr. Hagen Staack the speaker; a symposium sponsored jointly with the Alpha chapter of the na- tional honorary philosophy fraternity, Alpha Kappa Alpha; the awarding of medals for achievement in Latin to local high school students; and a banquet with Dr. Lari Crum of Alpha Epsilon chapter at Lehigh LTniversity as the speaker. The following students were members: the Mess rs. Ansons, Bleckley, Boyd, Donchez, Geehr, Hein, Kozauer, Schick, Stein- berg, Strohl, Trexler, Ziedonis, and initiates Boclair, Schlunk, Shoemaker, and Wescoe. Laculty members were Drs. Lritsch.

Russell Stine Faculty Advisor Dr. Kenneth Webb Omicron Delta Kappa is the leading national honorary ac- tivities fraternity comprising over sixty circles on college and university campuses throughout the nation. Founded at the Uni- versity of Washington and Lee in 1914, the society continues to strive to maintain the high principles which have heen establish- ed after thirty-three years of distinguished achievements. The purpose of Omicron Delta Kappa is threefold: First, to recognize men who have made achievements in collegiate activi- ties; second, to create an organization which will help to mold sentiment on questions of general college interest: and third, to bring together members of the faculty and student body on a basis of mutual interest and understanding. This year the Alpha Epsilon Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa has promoted a program to coordinate the clubs of Allentown High School with those of Muhlenberg College. Though still in the early stages, this program has heen quite successful. At the present time, the local circle is also formulating plans for a student leadership training convention. 115 Phi Alpha Zketa The purpose of Phi Alpha Theta, national honorary history fraternity, is to promote scholarship and interest in history. The fraternity, organized at the University of Arkansas, was estab- lished on the 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, his over-all average must be an 80 or better with an 85 average for his history courses. The chapter meets monthly, at which time discussions are held on an historical, political, or economic nature. The chapter also sponsors a prize awarded at Commencement for the best historical paper written by a member of the senior class. Officers President Wilson R. Hoyer Secretary-Treasurer .... John L.

Its purpose is to honor those students who have distinguished themselves in the field of Romance language, scholastic achievement, as well as in general college leadership. President Vice President Secretary Treasurer Ur. Anthony Lorbiere, founder ot the local chapter, is the national executive secretary of the fraternity and also acts as editor of the national publication, “The News Letter.

Established at Muhlenberg in the spring of 1953, the Muh- lenberg Chapter of Pi Delta Epsilon is the youngest honorary fraternity on campus. On the other hand, it is the oldest national honorary collegiate journalism fraternity in the country, having been organized at Syracuse University in 1909. The main pur- pose of this organization is to give recognition to men who have shown extreme interest in the field of journalism and to promote cooperation among the various campus publications. The Chapter meets the first and third Thursdays of every month to discuss problems of the various publications and to give advice toward the betterment of these publications. Du ring the past year, several projects were undertaken by the fraternity. The major project of the organization was the editing and publishing of the student handbook, the “M” Book. The group also sponsored a play-writing contest in which a $25 award was given to the winner. President ....... Vice President Secretary Treasurer Historian Advisor .......... Officers ............

The Council has always aimed to strengthen the relationship between the fraternities and the college administration, and to make and enforce regulations concerning problems which may arise among the fraternities. Any social fraternity on campus automatically be- comes an I.F.C. member, contingent upon their accept- ance by the faculty and administration. Each member fraternity elects three representatives to the council. I.F.C. is the supreme governing body of all fraternities, each rule and regulation subject to review by the coun- cil, with final approval of the faculty and administration. The Inter-Fraternity Council sponsors inter-fraternity sports competition and awards trophies to the winning fraternities in football, basketball, baseball, and bowling. The I.F.C. also awards a trophy to the fraternity with the best float in tbe annual Homecoming Day parade in the fall. One of the highlights of the Spring social calen- dar is the I.F.C. ball, annually presented by the council for tbe fraternity men on campus. Seated: Dr. Reed. H. Peckmann, L.

Ronald Schlittler Worthy Scribe Lee Angstadt Worthy Usher Hans Beckmann Worthy Sentinel Richard Williams Alpha Tau Omega, the first Greek letter fraternity established 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 Rich- mond, Virginia, on September 11, 1865. The Alpha Iota chapter at Muhlenberg is the second oldest chapter north of the Mason-Dixon Line, and is the oldest on the Muhlen- berg campus. The Seventy-fourth Anniversary of the founding of Alpha Iota was celebrated on March 26, 1955 at the Hotel Traylor when almost 200 alumni and actives were privileged to hear Dr. Albert Williams, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia and a Penn Tau initiate speak on the topic, “The History and the Future of Greek Letter Societies in America.” Silver recognition keys were presented to thirty-four alumni in token o f continued service to the Muhlenberg chapter. Several provincial and national officers were enter- tained hy the chapter during the winter months when rushing was at its heights. The fine pledge class was a credit to the college as it gave its full co-operation to the Inter Fraternity “Help Week” project at the Allen- town YMCA. The active brothers presented a scholastic report to the national officers which brought a letter of commenda- tion from the Executive Secretary. A.T.O. presently stands first among all national social fraternities in the country on the merits of scholarship achievement. Social activity was carried at a high pitch with Home- coming and Father’s Day parties supplementing the nor- mal activity of the four social weekends of the college term. Athletically, the fire place mantle was graced with the addition of several new trophies for winning first place in intramural and i nterfraternity competition in basket- ball and bowling, respectively. Keen playing resulted in satisfactory records in football and softball contests also. Brothers in Alpha Iota took on Community responsi- bility in distribution activity in the Cancer and Heart Fund appeals. Not only in these activities, but in all campus projects and organizations, the brotherhood in A.T.O. was seen working to maintain the lofty traditions of the local chapter and to better promote Muhlenberg College in the fine traditional heritage of which her sons are justifiably proud. 120 H, J. fie WfTtrtr?

Lambda Chi Alpha, formed at Boston LTniversity 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 improve- ments throughout the house have been made until now an adequate, comfortable home exists which houses nine- teen brothers easily.

Once again Lambda Chi proved its worth on the intra- mural football field as they recaptured the Intramural Football Trophy and the Inter-fraternity Football Trophy as they defeated Alpha Tau Omega in the final tilt. The social season at Lambda Chi has always been a highlight of the school year and this year was no ex- ception. The Annual Fall Formal was held at the Ameri- cus Hotel and was enjoyed by the brothers, pledges and dates. House parties ranged from a Beaux Arts theme to one of a Fairyland nature. In the spring, the annual picnic completed a full social year. 122 DCNAlD f!C Hi TO ,» «;«« «w.

This club was destined to grow into one of the largest non-sectarian social fraternities in the country. Today, Phi Epsilon Pi has the honor of being one of the few international social fraternities in the world with its gaining of a chapter at McGill University in Canada. In 1921, Phi Epsilon Pi was admitted to the National Interfraternity Conference as a senior member. Today, “Phi Ep” ranks as one of the leading fraternities in the nation in size and in achievement. Alpha Nu chapter, which came onto this campus on February 6, 1932, has strived hard to maintain this wonderful tradition. Alpha Nu chapter has steadily grown from a small embryo into one of the largest fraternities on the Muhlenberg College campus. This year, the total brotherhood has grown to twenty-nine men with an excellent pledge class which numbers close to the same amount. Although Alpha Nu has gained in size, its prin- ciples have remained the same. The brotherhood has always strived for the betterment of the college as well Officers Superior Israel Young Vice Superior Marc Strausberg Corresponding Secretary Harvey Wolfe Recording Secretary Robert Krain Treasurer Howard Smith as the individual through athletic, academic, and social achievement. This year, as always. Phi Ep ' s social functions were the highlight of the school year. The most popular event of the year was I.F.C. weekend. A lot of old memories were brought back when a large group of alumni re- turned to reminisce their college days with the brothers and their guests which included just about everyone on campus. This year, as in the past, Phi Epsilon Pi was among the leading fraternities in extra-curricular activities. The athletic teams of the brotherhood put on an excellent display of sportsmanship and what they lacked in ability, they made up in enthusiasm. From an academic stand- point, the fraternity as a whole had one of the best scholastic averages among other social fraternities on campus. The men from the house on Fulton Street only hope that the brothers of the future will represent the house in the same way as the brothers of the past have done. 124 M. M. Straus brrq A. tl.

Conditions at the College in 1913 led Dr. John A. W. Haas, then President of the College, to remark one day to Henry Moehling Jr. ’16, that he would welcome the organization of a third Fraternity. It was then that Henry Moehling Jr. approached Her- man W. Nenow 14, dissatisfied with conditions as they existed on the Campus, believed that a third Fraternity organized along high standards of morality, scholarship, campus politics and true fraternal fellowship, would be well received by the Student Body, Faculty and Board of Trustees. In January, 1914, they began to approach others. On March 16th, they sent a petition to the Faculty stating their reasons for desiring to found a third Fraternity and requested permission to organize such a group at once. The petition did not meet with the Faculty’s approval. This came as a complete surprise, for it was understood that the Faculty would welcome a third fraternal body. Acting upon the advice of several members of the Faculty, it was believed wise to organize secretly. On March 24, 1914, a preliminary meeting was held in Boom 313, West Berks Hall Dormitory. On March 31. Alpha Sigma Club was organized with headquarters on Hamilton Street in Allentown. On May 19th, a second petition was sent to the Fac- ulty. The second petition was not only disapproved but Alpha Sigma was ordered to disband, upon pain of Officers President Donald G. de Quevedo Vice President Lawrence T. Paul Secretary John C. Keyser Treasurer Richard Beach expulsion of its members from College. Because of this situation, the Brothers agreed to temporarily disband the Club as an organization, but to stick closely together and be ready to continue the organization upon due notice. Recognition was received from the Faculty on Septem- ber 17, 1914, and granted with the understanding that Alpha Sigma obtain a Charter from a National Fraternity within two years. It was from this time on that the word “Club” was dropped and the organization used the term Fraternity. With the approval of the Faculty, a further study of the field was made and on November 30, 1917, it was decided to ascertain whether Muhlenberg College was within the expansion policy of Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity and an answer was received inviting Alpha Sigma to join as a chapter in Phi Kappa Tau. Alpha Sigma was formally installed as Fta Chapter of Phi Kappa Tau upon the completion of the initiations on Friday, March 22, 1918. The Eta Chapter has gained community recognition through its work in the fund drive for the Lehigh Valley Crippled Children Organization and also through Eta’s annual Christmas party for the children at the Good Shepherd Home. A strong feeling of brotherhood has enabled Eta to make a success of the season’s houseparties and social functions. 126 Brothers and Pledges 1954-55 SENIORS JUNIORS Richard L. Beach Evan E.

The national fraternity was organized at the University of Massachusetts on March 15, 1873. It has grown steadily and now consists of sixty-five active chapters. The Upsilon Triton Circle began in humble surround- ings, occupying League Hall in East Hall. One year later, in 1950, the colony moved from the dormitory into the present chapter house at 401 North 23rd Street. Improve- ments, such as painting, redecorating the whole house, and converting the cellar into a recreation room have all been done by the brothers. The fine social functions of the fraternity do much to inspire and formulate the activities of Phi Sigma Kappa. Besides the planned social weekends, the class proms, the Founder’s Day Celebration, and Phi Sig’s own Moonlight Ball — frequent, spontaneous Saturday night A 0 ffieers — 1954-55 President Paul Heiser Vice President Paul Spohn Secretary Arthur Franzblau Sentinel Robert Meurer Treasurer Richard Jacobs parties seem to be the order for the boys at 23rd and Gordon. One of the cardinal principles of Phi Sigma Kappa is to stimulate scholarship. Upsilon Triton members proved that they are serious about this by winning the Inter-Fraternity Scholarship trophy with a chapter average of 81.5%. Five brothers achieved Dean’s list rating during the first semester of the 1954-55 school year. Eighteen brothers left Upsilon Triton after the gradu- ation of June 1954, but the ranks are being filled by recently initiated brothers. Fifteen pledges promise to add to the success of the order. Both active brothers and alumni of Phi Sig can look with satisfaction upon the young chapter which they helped to develop and strengthen. The future looks bright for Phi Sigma Kappa at Muhlenberg, but the brother- hood shall never forget the struggle and hard work neces- sary to secure that future. 128 Phi Si gma ifiappa 5 5 fluhlenberg Brothers and Pledges 1954-55 SENIORS SOPHOMORES William Brokaw Gerald Newhart Charles Boyle Bernard Smith Paul W.

From its small beginning, the fraternity has grown to the third largest national fraternity in exist- ence today. The Pennsylvania Iota chapter of Sig Ep was installed on the Muhlenberg campus April 10, 1938. Tinder the difficult conditions caused by the second World War, the fraternity was forced to leave the campus, but was again reactivated in 1947. Since 1952, the chapter has been located at the former residence of Dr. and Mrs. Edgar Swain on North 23rd Street. Penn Iota began the 1954-55 year when it won the IFC Homecoming Float trophy for its entry in the annual pajama parade. Officers 1954- 55 ......................

Lennard Stravino The house is manned by fifty-five brothers and pledges, who all take active part in the various college activities. As in previous years, many of the men on varsity teams at Muhlenberg are Sig Ep men. During the past year, many of the best social events on campus took place in the house with the “red door.” The outstanding party of the year was the Junior Prom houseparty, at which time a Roman toga party theme prevailed. As the school year closes, the brothers of the Golden Heart of Sigma Phi Epsilon are already anticipating another new year of even greater things to come, made possible only through the harmony and cooperation of the brotherhood, itself, and through the extension of the hand of friendship to their brother fraternities and student friends.

So it was that one of the smallest classes in recent Muhlenberg history, became the newest member of the Muhlen- berg family. Freshman Week went quickly and the awaited classes began. Of course, the Class of 1955 met with that seemingly fiendish group of upperclassmen called the Freshman Tribunal, who helpfully suggested the rules of conduct on campus. And so with their dinks, how ties and sport coats filled with matches and pipe cleaners the Frosh looked forward to the happy and fruitful years at Muhlenberg, careful to acknowledge General Pete as they did. The Class of ' 55 became a solid group what with the Soph-Frosh events, the Muhlenberg-Cedar Crest Dance, and those friendly spontaneous night meet- ings with “Haps” in the West Hall Auditorium. The class chose its organizations, fraternities and athletic teams and fell into the routine of class and extra-curricular life. The social calendar featured the Soph-Frosh Hop, the Senior Ball and the Junior Prom. Rockne Hall shuddered to the cheering and the stamping of feet as the new Freshmen watched the basketball season pass. The class missed that expedition to Cedar Crest which the upperclassmen had organized to cement rela- tions between the two schools. And they never did see those students from Easton, Pennsylvania, who thought that Muhlenberg needed a new paint job. That first Spring came quickly along with baseball and track and those warm May days which twisted men ' s minds away from the books. And so the first year ended, perhaps to remain the best remembered year in the minds of the class of ' 55. Early in their Sophomore year, the Class of 1955 learned that their new President would be Dr. J. Conrad Seegers, and on May 2, of that year they saw Dr. Seegers inaugurated in an impressive ceremony in the College Chapel. They lived up to the duties of every Sophomore Class and saw to it that the rights of the Freshmen were safeguarded so that no one could take unfair advantage of the new boys. Socially, the class organizers made plans for the Soph-Frosh Hop and turned out a successful masquerade dance with music by Bud Rader and his Orchestra, who also turned out in costume. In an effort to make money, the class undertook a project to sell keepsake plates which commemorated the inaugu- ration of President J. Conrad Seegers. The class also played its part in the student development campaign which went well over the expected goal. And on the first day of April, 1953 they saw the steelwork for the long awaited Memorial Hall field house going up. As Muhlenberg entered its 106th year, the Junior Class looked forward to its last two years of college. This year started off well with football victories over highly rated Bucknell and Lafayette. The class recoiled under the news that the trustees had approved of co-education in the near future. Highlighting the Class of 1955’s activities as well as Muhlenberg’s social events for 1954 was the colorful Jun ior Prom. Elliot Lawrence’s well known orchestra provided music for dancing at spacious Castle Gardens on the night of March 26th. The ballroom, decorated in an appropriate spring theme, saw the crowning of Miss Shirley Moore as the Prom Queen. Also plans were made to adopt a class dedicatory right in the memory of Clarence Moyer, who had lost his life during the Spring semester. When September, 1954 came around, the Class of 1955 were finally seniors. The men of the class who had served in every organization on campus and who had fulfilled the qualifications for leadership in the Muhlenberg community were now preparing for the future. They looked to further education, positions in the business world, or service in the armed forces. The year began on a note of victory with the Muhlenberg football team’s upset victory over the previously unbeaten Delaware eleven. Because of their service to the school, and their per- sonal accomplishments, ten of the members of the class were chosen for “Who’s Who In American Colleges and LTniversities.’’ On the night of December 10th, the seniors presented the highlight of the social year with their annual formal held in the beautiful ballroom of the Americus Hotel. The smooth rhythms of Bill Davies Orchestra and the singing of Sandy Blaine provided the “Holly Hop with fine music, and for a change in tempo the " Dixielanders " kept the festive spirit high. This was the year of such occasions as the Charlie Chaplin movies, the Ed Murrow telecast, and the Student Banquet. At the end of their last full year at Muhlenberg, the seniors put away their hooks and looked forward to the Graduation Weekend. On the sixth day of June, 1955 they would close their careers at Muhlenberg. There were four years of hard work, fun, and confusion but out of it came learning, and most of all, four years of preparation for life. 133 COMPLIMENTS OF THE SENIOR ELASS OF MUHLENBERG EOLLEGE ☆ ALLENTOWN, PENNA.
