Uoauesrioooblv, rh s man has hod a orofound .nfloence oh our thinking and on our lives. For this reason we dedicate our yearbook f o Dr John Conrad Seegers. We have noted in Dr. Seegers cer- tain unique qualities that enable him both to command respect for his of- fice and also to extend a jovial and friendly smile or a sympathetic ear to any student in need. In his office, we came to know him as a champion of student rights and freedoms. We fol- lowed with interest his reports of Muhlenberg ' s steady financial rise. However, we came to know Dr. Seegers not so much for his abilities as an executive, as an orator or as an academic figurehead, but as a per- sonal leader who provides an inspir- ing example. Despite his busy sched- ule as speech maker and official rep- resentative of the college. Dr. Seegers, nevertheless, finds time to attend and participate in diverse student organi- zational affairs. His spirit and gusto are infectious and have provided an excellent example of true school spirit. Friendly, sincere, truth-loving and sports minded, Dr. Seegers became our individually-beloved personal friend. DR. J. CONRAD SEEGERS The 1956 CIARLA Sports Editors DR.

The true sentimental value which dictated this volume ' s construction lies in the recollection of our collegiate incidents — the pleasant idleness of social intercourse and the expensive experience of an education. The editors hope each word and picture will recall a mem- orable Muhlenberg experience. Like those of the past four years, this book may leave something to be desired by some critics. In each word and picture we have tried to capture every aspect of college life. There may be some mistakes, technical and typographical, but we hope there are no factual errors in this re-construc- tion of the affairs of the Class of 1 956. The editors thank the Muhlenberg family- faculty and administration— for their counsel and guidance, and for these memories. To the gradu- ating class— GOOD LUCK!

The CIARLA is one of the most prized possessions of many Muhlenberg Alumni for it serves as the connecting link to their college memories. It is the hope of the staff that the students will be proud of and appreciate the 1956 CIARLA for many years. The staff is indebted to the many people — students and faculty — who so graciously con- tributed their talents and time to help produce this book. We sincerely thank Dr. Truman L. Koehler for his fine counselling and advising. We would also like to express our thanks to Apeda Studios and the Kutztown Publishing Company for their technical assistance. Special thanks must go to the photography staff of the Allentown Call-Chronicle Newspapers for the photographic assistance rendered us. And to all others who helped to make the CIARLA a reality, be your contribution large or small, we express our heartfelt thanks. to learn manners from stu- dents who are gentlemen and to form character under professors who are Christians n»W«rjw ti J. CONRAD SEEGERS Ph.D., Litt.D., LL.D. President, Muhlenberg College PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE To the Class of 1956: The four years of which this book is a record have been four very important years in the history of Muhlenberg College. During this period — a very brief period when one remembers that the College has been in existence for over a century, a great deal has occurred which will have lasting significance in the life of the institution. Four years ago, Muhlenberg, like most independent col- leges, was in something of a crisis. The College had ex- panded tremendously in the years immediately following World War II. The enrollment, which presumably had been set at a maximum of no more than six hundred and fifty, had suddenly grown to double that figure, and the College was geared to that size in point of staff and faculty. Then came the Korean war and other disruptions. The College had planned a gradual decrease in enrollment, with an ultimate enrollment of eight to nine hundred students in mind. It suddenly found itself with a little over six hundred students, with a staggering debt, with mounting yearly operational deficits, and with the end of its credit in sight. In spite of these discouraging prospects, the Board of Trustees courageously undertook a campaign to erect the Physical Education building which had been talked about for years. The campaign was successful and your class saw the beautiful and useful Memorial Hall completed. Shortly thereafter the Ministerium of Pennsylvania under- took a thorough study of the needs of the College and, in special session, launched an appeal for $1,500,000 de- signed to take care of the emergency, pay the debt, and establish coeducation. As a result of that campaign and other developments the College has been placed upon a much firmer financial basis. The endowment has been increased 1 in an amount exceeding $300,000. The debt has been greatly reduced. A new dormitory will soon be begun. At the same time the academic standards of the College have been stiffened. The College is not affluent, but it is now stable, and its sources of help are expanding. It was during these same years that the American Chem- ical Society gave the College its approval. The Middle States Association, visiting us as a part of a systematic reevalua- tion of all members of that Association, continued Muhlen- berg as a member accredited institution. So the four years you have spent here have been pro- ductive years for the College. All of us hope they have been even more productive for you. We hope you have learned a great deal, that you have developed inquiring minds, have learned more about your fellowman, have learned how to study and how to think, that your faith has been deepened, your consciences made more keen. We hope that the friendships you have made here will be a source of constant joy to you, and that you will have warm memories of your alma mater. Further, we wish for you success and satisfaction in your life work. Sincerely, J. C. S. JOHN J. REED A.B., AM., Ph.D. Advisor to Student Activities ADMINISTRATION With the commencement of the class of 1956, two changes in the administrative personnel of the College took place with the resignation of William Nixon and Dr. John Reed. Mr. Nixon, Director of Development, resigned to assume a similar post at another institution. Dr. Reed, who had served one year as Ad- viser to Student Activities, resigned in order to devote his full time to teaching and the completion of some historical research. Although he will not assume the post until fall of 1956, Dr. Claude Dierolf was named Dean of Men, a position created in an anticipation of coeducation. WILLIAM V.

Tftuaic Zhe Affairs of the Senior Class of 1956 THE HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1956 It might be said that history continually re peats itself at Muhlenberg. Each year the classes move through the same routine as their prede- cessors — the soph-frosh conflict, class dances, and so on. And yet the four years spent by the class of 1956 at Muhlenberg contained events never before seen on this campus. Haps and Mabel Benfer welcomed us back there in September of 1952. Our college was different in 1952 from what it is today. Dr. Morris S. Greth was acting as president; Bull Ritter pre- sided over the little two-by-four basketball court in West Hall; we were not as yet haunted by the knowledge that females would soon invade our male domain. We barely had time to catch our breath before being caught up in the whirl of campus life. A new prexy was elected on September 26 at a special meeting of the board of trustees. At the same time, workmen began to invade the quiet grove in preparation for the new physical education building. And in the midst of all this, the freshmen met the sopho- mores in the tug-o-war. We won the contest only after taking it to the BMOC ' s on the Student Council. May second was a big day, " Con " Seegers became our sixth college president. It became apparent that this man knew the problems and purposes of ' Berg when, in his inaugural ad- dress, he noted the importance " of preserving our integrity, of cherishing and fighting for the right to teach the truth, of refusing to be intimi- dated by any and all who would challenge that right, " Thus our first year came to an end. We got the class of 1953 on its way and began to make plans to receive the class of 1957 in our exalted position as sophomores. Matt Gillespie and his crew were on hand to provide music for the 1953 $oph-Frosh Hop known affectionately as " General Pete ' s Prance. " There was a cloud of gloom over this usually gay affair however. Faces were long and hearts heavy. Coeducation was coming. A 1,5 million dollar program was approved by the Minis- terium at a special campus session in December. We resigned ourselves to our fate. A new figure entered the political limelight in the class elections at the beginning of 1954. His name — Quay. Although green in the posi- tion as class president. Bill had already been involved in political intrigue in the famous " Be- trayal " of our freshman year. He remained as class prexy until his election to Student Council presidency a year later. We closed out this, our second year at ' Berg, in relative obscurity. The new Memorial Hall was dedicated. Our sports picture was considerably bright- ened at the end of October when our Mules de- feated the Delaware Blue Hens by one point. Mrs. Seegers was quoted as saying, " It put me so far up in the air that here it is 7;30 P.M. and I haven ' t come down yet, " Football season passed; another Christmas recess was also his- tory; Dave Brubeck made the girders of Memo- rial Hall sway with syncopated rhythm; and it seemed no time at all until our Junior Prom was before us. Art Mooney and his orchestra gave out with the beat to the background sound of swishing skirts and shuffling feet as we danced our way up the " stairway to the stars. " Thus our third year at ' Berg ended. Campus organizations were now being led by members of Our class. With a greater sense of regret than we had known in previous years, we bade fare- well to " Confidential Ron " Schlittler and his hardened fellow graduates. As we began our fourth September at Muhl- enberg, the greeting of old friends took on new significance. Seniors were busy with cameras, taking their last shots of the autumnal beauty of the campus. Term papers, ethical and otherwise, were loaded upon us to be filed away until closer to the deadline. The Sno-Ball, our class dance, was held at the Frolics. Its wintry setting put u$ in the mood for the Christmas season ahead. We returned for our last semester at Muhlen- berg. Men needing quality points were to be seen thumbing through the catalogue and set- ting up study schedules. We were on the home stretch. The first big shock of the semester came when Dr. Stine announced the term paper theme for the new marking period. Unabridged it read; " A Detailed History and Analysis of the Primary Terms of my Major and an Arrangement of these Terms in the University Curriculum as a Neces- sary Introduction to an Integrated World View. " With clenched teeth, we prepared to meet this challenge! Attending the alumni luncheon, we received a sample look at the alumni organization of which we now are a part. Thus the story of our undergraduate years at the College is but the beginning of our association with Muhlenberg. Graduation has marked the beginning of a new era in the history of the class of 1956, For four years, Our College offered us its resources for a liberal education. Now we have the opportunity to repay the debt we owe to our alma mater. Our class history has only begun. May it con- tinue to be one of service to our college, our church and our community. RICHARD G. MILLER, JR. June 9, 1956 — Read at Class Day JOSEPH DONCHEZ President HENRY J. HUEGEL, Vice President VINCENT OSADCHY . . Secretary ROBERT ROEHM ...... Treasurer A winter motif was the theme for the final affair of ie 1955 social season, the Senior Ball on Friday eve- ing, December 9. The Christmas trees and huge snow- nan decorating the Frolics Ballroom were in keeping ✓ith the " Sno-Bal! " theme of the dance and the blizzard utside. An innovation in dances was introduced by having wo bands provide continuous music from 9 p,m. until :3Q a.m. Matt Gillespie and his orchestra supplied the lanceable renditions while the Hurricane Jazz Band of ienny Snyder provided music during the intermissions. Richard Weidner was chairman of the dance commit- ee which consisted of Peter Lord, Jack Gover, William Sreenawald, Earl Trumbower, Larry Cescon, Charles • tiles, Robert Keyes and Joseph Donchez. ■ — i j ALEXANDER M.

WHO ' S WHO AMONG STUDENTS IN AMERICAN UNIVERSITIES AND COLLEGES awards each member a certificate of recognition, presented on the campus at an honor award ceremony.

" Women have a rightful place be- side men in all walks of life and Muh- lenberg will help them toward their proper leadership, " Dr. Charles M. Cooper, president of the Lutheran Ministerium of Pennsylvania, de- clared at ground-breaking cere- monies for the new dormitory. He spoke at the opening service in Egner Memorial Chapel prior to the outdoor ritual on April 18. An Act of Faith Dr. Cooper called the ground-break- ing " an act of faith in which we have confidence that our dreams (co-educa- tion) will be realized. " He said that co-education would heighten aca- demic standards, with its ensuing " strenuous competition " between men and women students, as well as de- velop a fuller social life. He also pointed out " the advent of co-educa- tion will renew the community ' s sense of loyalty and pride in Muhlenberg and stimulate a sense of devotion to future needs of the college.

Capped by the energetic spirit of the uninitiated, the class of 1959 announced their arrival by damaging the spirit, and clothes, of the sophomore class in the annual tug-of-war. However, a determined, revenge-hardy $oph team scrambled, pushed, and pulled to victory in the second encounter, on the push ball field, with the fresh- man class, now tramping the campus with the air of veteran collegiates. In a surprise move by the Freshman tribunal, that group disbanded itself less than two months after the freshman class entered Muhlenberg. Ed Steiger, Tribunal Chairman, reported, " The class of 1959 has demonstrated the spirit necessary to make successful college men. " With this proclamation, the freshman ventured into the campus activities with much gusto and enthusiasm, spreading their initiative and interest into the numerous campus organizations. , . , .

' ' WEEKLY The Muhlenberg Weekly is the student- owned campus publication which records and prints the events and activities of the college throughout the academic year. The purpose of the organization is the presenta- tion of facts about campus life and the surrounding college community. Organizationally, the Weekly is a highly complex unit composed of many arms which are essential to the paper ' s operation. The editors of the newspaper handle problems and debts, pay bills and meet the Weekly ' s deadline with a characteristic ardor that has maintained the 73 year record of always meeting the deadline- time. Muhlenberg Weekly Editors 1955-1956 RICHARD MILLER, JR. HERMAN E. ZEIGER Co-Editors CALVIN COLARUSSO, Managing Editor PAUL LEVY Business Manager Associate Editors JAMES MACKENZIE DAVID GODSHALL JOHN KEYSER LARRY MILLER LEONARD VINNICK ED KUNKEL LARRY CESCON DICK WEIDNER For the continuance of this record the Weekly de- pends on the unremunerated service of about 60 men, who serve as reporters, advertisement sales- men, circulation personnel and business and pho- tography people. The publication first appeared on the old Muhlen- berg campus at Fourth and Walnut Streets in 1883 under the title, 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 Weekly. This name remains until today. As a vehicle of student opinion the paper derives freedom of expression in its editorial columns by consent of the Board of Trustees of the College, who delegate authority through the college President, Dr. Seegers. Individual opinions are welcomed by the staff-elected student editor who evaluates all material. If it is well-written and printable, he cate- gorizes it into one of three divisions: (a) complaints are printed as Mule Kicks; (b) a campus problem with a suggested solution is printed as a Letter to the Editor; (c) lengthy dissertation on campus, local and national problems are printed in feature story style with a by-line indicating the author. Only occasionally do qualified students write guest edi- torials. The present editors have been associated with the Weekly throughout their four college years and are acquainted intimately with every phase of the paper ' s publication and distribution process. They receive with a mixed feeling of pride and incentive the Associated Collegiate Press rating-list of colleges. Noting simultaneously their " first class " ra ting and the still unattained goal of the " All-American " news- paper, they renew their efforts to instill Weekly staffmen with the desire to be better journalists. The editors recognize the responsibility of accur- ately reporting facts in Weekly news stories and charge the incoming editor to be relentless in his en- deavor to improve the quality of journalism in a thought-provoking framework of a greater Muh- lenberg.

By conducting and sponsoring special serv- ices and by presenting speakers and other special programs, the MCA helps to fill out the religious life of the campus. Early in the year it was decided to reduce business meetings to twice monthly, the alternate meetings devoted to discussion periods or to guest speakers. In connection with this, Mr. William Kinter presented a talk on " Mideval Concepts of Heresy, " a panel discussion entitled " The Church: High or Low " was given, and Dr. Walter Brackin gave a talk about " Psychoanalysis. " In addition to the afternoon meetings there were several special programs. The Rev. Samuel C. Jaxheimer showed slides and com- mented on his trip to the Holy Land. The MCA joined with some other groups in sponsoring a lecture by Dr. Fatemi of Princeton University. At Epiphany, the Rev. Albert Billy explained a feast observed cus- tomarily arfiong families in the Slovak Lutheran Church on such days, and the group then participated in its celebration. During Advent and Lent, weekly Vesper Services were held in the Chapel and, in addition. Vesper Services were conducted each week by students in West Hall. In cooperation with The Pre-Theological Club, the MCA converted a room in the Student Center into a prayer chapel. Named the " Oratory of the Holy Ghost, " the room is used jointly by the two groups. One of the highlights of the year was the Mask and Dagger-MCA production of " Everyman " a religious play presented in the Chapel. DAVID GODSHALL . . .

In Octo- ber of that year the first Student Council was elected, working under a provisional constitution. The present Council acts as the official legis- tive agent of the student body by virtue of the authority vested in it by the Student Body Constitution adopted in 1939. Although allocation of funds to student organizations and deal- ing with student misconduct are necessary duties of the Council, recent trends have been toward the role of interpreting student needs and relaying these needs, with recommendations, to the college administra- tion. As a result, informal discussions between college representatives and the Council members have occurred more frequently during this year than in the past. These discussions have done much to clarify and coordinate basic aims for the betterment of the college. One aim of this year ' s Student Council has been to integrate the student more fully into college life. The Council has attempted to ac- complish this through improved assembly programs and a student body meeting with athletic board members. When these innovations did not seem to bear immediate results, the members, nevertheless, continued to consider them as necessary steps toward the strengthen- ing of student activities at Muhlenberg.

CLAUDE DIEROLF Faculty Chairman The Institute of Christian Living was organized under the combined patronage of the Muhlenberg Christian Association, the Rehrig Fund and the Board of Trustees. Since the time of its inception, it has brought outstanding leaders and personalities in diverse fields to the Muhlen- berg campus. In the past, the program for the year has varied from a full week of religious emphasis with many speakers, to several three- day periods with one speaker at each time. The fundamental purpose of the I.C.L. is to provide the oppor- tunities whereby Muhlenberg students can find fuller and richer lives through the presentation of Christian ideas in relation to the various phases of our highly complex society. During the course of the year action was taken that the name I.C.L. be change to the Institute of Faith; the basic purpose remaining the same. The change will take effect upon the commencement of the 1956-1957 school year. Also, an additional chairmanship was created in order to provide a direct line of communication between I.C.L. and its parent organization, the Muhlenberg Christian Association. Through- out the year it became apparent, as exemplified in several situations and in the routine order of business, that this move proved to be ex- tremely valuable. The formal conclusion of the I.C.L. committee took place in March at which time a banquet was provided in grateful recognition of the work and effort of the committee and its members. During the 1955-56 program the Institute of Chris- tian Living presented two outstanding speakers. Dr. Wil- liam Herberg, a leading figure in the social, political and religious realm, has lectured and conducted seminars at many leading academic institutions in the United States and Canada. Recent publications of his which have re- ceived acclaim are: Judaism and Modern Man: An Inter- pretation of Jewish Religion, and Protestant-Catholic- Jew: An Essay in American Religious Sociology. During a three-day program in November, Dr. Herberg pre- sented a series of lectures and conducted numerous in- formal discussions and classroom visitations. His general theme was " Faith and Life in an Age of Crisis. " VICE CHAIRMEN: PAUL WEIDKNECHT Hospitality EDWARD SMITH Worship KARL BECKER Publicity MEL REA Campus-Promotion VICTOR KOTUN ....

Dr. Cole is a minister in the Episcopalian Church, and at present he is the Chap- lain and Associate Professor of Religion at Williams Col- lege in Massachusetts. He has lectured and conducted religious emphasis programs at many colleges and uni- versities. The general theme of his lectures was " Sex in Christianity and Psychoanalysis. " A different pattern of programming was initiated during Dr. Cole ' s visit. The regular and somewhat traditional lecture during the eve- ning in the Student Center was moved to the warm at- mosphere of the fraternity. Three fraternities acted as hosts in an open-house style capacity, the identical role which the Student Center had played heretofore. Hence, the work of I.C.L. has been accepted even deeper into the life of this campus. Cardinal Key JOHN A. SiMEK President JON F. LaFAVER Vice-President JOHN E. MARSHALL Secretary -Treasurer DR.

The regular members include seven men from each of the three upper classes. Each year, seven freshmen are added to the group with the remainder of the pledges being made associate brothers until such time as there might be vacancies in the Society. This year members of the Society who have served the college for two years were awarded keys. Members of Cardinal Key Society are the representatives of Muh- lenberg College to visitors on campus. It is through this organization that a favorable impression of the college may be formed. Chapel Choir ROBERT L. KEYS Manager WILLIAM T. ANDERSON JOHN W. DONAGHY Assistant Managers RICHARD G.

Miller, Jr. David Rothermel James Skelton William Sunderland Werner Weinreich This year marked the completion of the first four-year cycle of the college choir under the direction of Mr. Ludwig Lenel. Graduating senior members have had the satisfaction of seeing the singing ability and musical interpretation improve and the repertoire widen under Mr. Lenel ' s direction. This trend has been a continuation of the stand- ards set by Dr. Harold K. Marks, director of the organization from its embryonic days in the early 1930 ' s until his retirement in 1952. During the past two semesters, members of the choir had the opportunity to combine with female vocalists. At Christmas time the Cedar Crest Choir joined with the men to present one of the outstand- ing joint Christmas services in recent years. In March, Bryn Mawr and Muhlenberg joined musical talents to present a combined concert. As in the past, the choir has done its share of public relations work for the College. Concerts have been held in churches ranging from the small but inspiring Zion Lutheran Church near Telford to the magnifi- cent edifice of St. Bartholomew ' s in New York City. Wherever it has gone, the choir has tried to fulfill its obligations to the Church and to the College. With the promise of co-education in the near future, plans are already being made for an enlarged program which could include concerts in a wide area of eastern United States. With such a program goes a responsibility of presenting the most flawless work possible. Pre- Zheological Club RICHARD SCHLEGEL President WERNER WEINRICH . . .

The club strives to provide scriptural education, to deepen the spir- itual lives of its members, to provide Christian fellowship, to conform the members in their chosen profession and to be a factor for enhancing Christian life on the campus and elsewhere. Organ- ized in 1933, the club now bears the name of the Muhlenberg President who was so instrumen- tal in its formation. The bi-monthly meetings bring church leaders, both lay and clerical, to speak on related facets of the church ' s work. Some of the speakers during the year included Dr. Russell Stine, Dr. Edward T. Horn, III, Father Gregory (a Benedictine Monk), Dr. Haagen Staack, Dr. Rodney Ring, Dr. Edgar Brown, and Dr. David H. Bremer.

The purpose of I.C.G. " is not to preach, nor even to teach, but rather to provide a means whereby students may learn together how their government operates. " The Muhlenberg chapter is a member of a statewide politi- cal science organization. The Pennsylvania I.C.G. is composed of five geographic regions. Peter Lord was the elected director of the North- east Region of which Muhlenberg is a member. Throughout the school year meetings were held to discuss and decide policy. All activity was directed to the annual state conven- tion held at Harrisburg in April. Our delegation, accompanied by ap- proximately fifty colleges and universities, modeled a presidential nom- inating convention. This group of twenty-five men was headed by president Ed. Steiger.

Once again di- minutive Jim McConnell starred as the now-famous Captain Queeg and Howard Frank took on the demanding role of de- fense attorney, Barney Greenwald. But the realization of fine theater came as every character was thoroughly developed so that the mastery of the play and the superlative production completely outshone all the fine performances of major and minor roles. DONALD C. SHEASLEY President ERNEST POHLHAUS .... Vice-President JAMES PATTERSON Secretary HERBERT KASNETZ . . Business Manager DR. ANDREW H. ERSKINE Advisor and Director After such a sterling production, Mask and Dagger reached the pinnacle of arousing interest in dramatic achievement among the students. With two productions a year, students avidly be- came familiar with all phases of dramatic activity: acting, stage- craft, lighting, and all the intricacies of business management of shows. In the winter, M D joined forces with MCA in presenting a morality play, " Everyman " , in the college chapel. The club is continuing plans to present only the best of exciting and thought-provoking dramas to the college campus and the com- munity. Under the able guidance of Dr. Andrew Erskine this ideal will always be realized. Pre-Medical Society The Muhlenberg College Pre-Medical Society was founded in 1931 by Dr. John V. Shankweiler ' 21, who is also the present advisor. Its purpose is to bring the pre-medical and pre-dental students closer to their re- spective fields of medicine and dentistry by securing prominent lecturers and presenting motion pictures in the field of medical science. Students must meet the follow- ing requirements to be eligible for membership in the Society: intention to enter the medical or dental profes- sion, and maintenance of at least a C average in fresh- man chemistry. The important event of the 1955-56 year for the society was a visit to Jefferson Medical College in Phila- delphia. Outstanding physicians who visited the Society and presented varied and interesting programs included Dr. Robert Nye, assistant Dean of Jefferson Medical Col- lege,- Dr. Charles Sell, charter member of the Society and a specialist in Allergies,- Dr. Harold Everett, specialist in Internal Medicine; and Dr. Hilda Ruch, from Allentown General Hospital, who spoke on the subject of Poliomye- litis and the Salk Vaccine. Outstanding motion pictures included those dealing with various surgical techniques. This year, Cedar Crest College was host to the annual banquet of the Pre-Medical Societies of the colleges in the Lehigh Valley. JOSEPH A. CAPOZZI President RICHARD L. GROSS ....

Under the direction of Mr. Gergits, this or- ganization played at pep-rallies, football games, the annual Homecoming Day Parade and the Allentown Halloween Parade. Clarence Simmons acted as drum major for his third year, adding spectacular baton twirling performances to the music of the band. This year marked the reorganization of the Muhlenberg Concert Band. The band room in Mem- orial Hall was sound-proofed and conditioned for playing purposes; storage and filing facilities were also installed. A loan from Student Council provided funds for the purchase of new instruments, and prac- tice sessions were held twice weekly. With these loans, the band culminated its musical enthusiasm in a Spring Concert, the highlight of the musical year. The band operates as a democratic organization with the members responsible for much of the music and drill planning. Each Spring the band holds an awards banquet, to which both marching and con- cert members are invited. This event includes a re- view of the year ' s work and a discussion of plans for the following year ' s band. Members of the band are chosen on the basis of previous musical experience and aptitude for play- ing musical instruments. Freshmen are contacted during orientation at the college and the organiza- tion meets before registration to prepare for the opening activities of the school year.

The expressed function of the organization has been keenly motivated through an enthusiasm of its members and by the re- ceptive audiences who have attended the three concerts which the Jazz Society has sponsored over a period of two years. This year ' s first concert featured Stan Kenton and his orchestra who thrilled the audience with their ver- satility. Such luminaries as Jerry Mulligan, Woody Her- man, and many others are possible concert groups in the immediate future. Although the Jazz Society has had success to date in their concert efforts, the idea of large and well known attractions will be supplemented by lectures at scheduled meetings as well as small group concerts. Without this important informative phase of the club ' s activities, the purpose of the Jazz Society would be defeated. Any ma- triculated member of the Muhlenberg student body is eligible for membership to this society. The Muhlenberg Jazz Society was founded by a small group of jazz enthusiasts headed by William Rutch. The club has a constitution and holds yearly elections. Money for concerts is obtained through Student Council appropriation through concert ticket sales. The Muhlenberg College Sociological Society was founded in April, 1950 in order to promote a closer fel- lowship among students interested in Sociology. Various phases of social work are presented at the monthly meet- ings by noted authorities in their respective fields. The objectives of the organization are to dissemi- nate the subject-matter of Sociology, to promote the scientific viewpoint, to provide the opportunities for the discussion of social problems as they affect the life on campus and in the community and to provide the op- portunities for fellowship among students interested in Sociology. During the academic year of 1955-56, the society sponsored lectures by Dr. Marjorie Landis of the Lehigh Valley Guidance Center, Mr. William Harrison of Air Products Inc., and Mrs. F. Bedinger of the Family Service Agency. The annual trip to N. Y. was held in March, at which time the group visited several places of sociological in- terest. Among those places visited were Welfare Island, Chinatown, and Harlem. Activities of the year were terminated by the an- nual banquet held at the Willows.

KENNETH WEBB . . . President Vice-President . . . Secretary . . . Treasurer .... Advisor The Varsity " M " Club is made up of those athletes who have earned a varsity letter in any sport. The primary purpose of the organization is to assist in the development of collegiate athletics as well as sponsoring social functions throughout the year. The club attempts to promote closer relationships among the members of the various athletic squads, to dis- courage athletes from breaking the rules, to raise the academic standing of its members, and to strive for high standards of sportsmanship. During the fall of the 1955-1956 school year, the club undertook the annual collection for the Com- munity Chest and has recently decided to change the Senior Awards for letter winners. The organization rounded out the year by aiding in the annual All- Sports Banquet. The monthly meetings of the Science Club attempt to stimulate student interest in the various problems of the physical sciences, physics, and chemistry. All students who are interested in discussing such problems are in- vit ed into the confines of the Club. This function manifests itself in three ways: prac- tical science, theoretical or pure science, and research. Hence, an effort is made to secure outstanding men from industry to present their views on the application of pure science to produce material benefits; excellent educators to speak on pure science itself; and students who have done research work here at Muhlenberg to expound up- on their work. At a number of meetings this year the Science Club of Allentown High School was invited to attend. In addition, the Club sponsors field trips to industries and research centers. This year profitable visits were made to the Atlas Cement Company in Northampton and to the DuPont Research Center in Wilmington, Delaware. A banquet concluded the Club ' s activities for the year.

Advisor Don Michaels Dick Kaufman Don Fio Rito Bill Mosolino The Forensic Council, active since 1933, attempts to familiarize the students of Muhlenberg College with the art of public speaking. Membership in the council is open to all students who participate in at least one oratorical contest. Under the direction of Dr. Erskine, the varsity team travels to such schools as Pittsburgh, Penn State, and Hofstra, plus many schools in the eastern United States. The topic under discussion this year was, " The acceptance by industry of the guaranteed annual wage. " On November 19, 1955, the Forensic Council held on our college campus, the fifth annual debating tournament. More than twenty colleges and univer- sities attended this, the largest meeting of its kind ever held on " Berg ' s " campus. The previous tourna- ment, which debated the topic, " Recognition of Red China " was televised by Edward R. Murrow and shown over the CBS Television Network. Freshman debating is one of the chief underclass- man activities on campus. An interesting highlight of the year was the inter-council debate in which the freshman debated the upperclassman. This was presented as an assembly program in the Science Auditorium.

Its purpose is to provide an oppor- tunity for students in the Education Department to become better acquainted with the teaching pro- fession. The activities of the Society include field trips, seminars, and guest speakers dealing with the vari- ous phases and problems in the educational field. The Education Society is open to all students who have an interest in the teaching profession. The highlight of the year ' s activities was the pre- sentation of a program on campus dealing with the problem of academic freedom in our society, par- ticularly as it relates to secondary and high educa- tion. In order to stimulate interest in this topic most fully, a speaker of national prominence was pro- cured. Det “Deutsche Verein ERNEST POHLHAUS President WERNER WEINRICH . . . Vice-President KARL A.

Heere Richard Schlegel Edwin Kunkel Wolfgang Koenig Der Deutsche Verein was founded in 1924 when a group of students met under the direction of Dr. Preston A. Barba. The purpose of the organization is to cultivate interest in the German language and culture among the students of Muhlenberg. The regular meetings of the Verein are held bi-monthly and give the students the opportunity to use the German language in conversation and in song. The people of Germany are a singing people and the members of the Deutsche Verein also have this char- acteristic. In the past, both German art songs and folk songs have been presented. Every year the Verein has its Christmas program, or Weihnachtfest, and a Damenabend to which the language club of Cedar Crest College is invited. Students, who at the end of their freshman year have attained superior grades in German, are elig- ible for membership in the Deutsche Verein. All stu- dents who have successfully completed elementary German and who show genuine interest in the lan- guage may be invited to join. Must ness Club ADRIAN J. CORNELIESS .... Presiden t ALBERT FARRARA Vice-President EDWARD KERN Treasurer WALTER BUCKFELLER Secretary HORRACE TOWNSEND Advisor The Business and Economics Club was organ- ized early in 1955 by the upperclassmen of that year. These men were given charter membership in the organization which was then a small but rapidly growing club. This club provides the eco- nomics and business administration majors with a medium through which they can supplement their formal education by an interchange of ideas in related fields. The purpose of the organization is to simulate a greater intellectual and academic interest in important economic problems. This objective was accomplished through field trips to local industries and discussion forums led by prominent businessmen. One of the year ' s activities consisted of a trip to New York City where the club studied the func- tion of the New York and American Stock Exchanges and also visited the Chase National Bank Museum of Money. Another tour was made to the Mack Truck Corporation where the assem- bly line and all its stations were viewed and ex- plained. A trip through the Bethlehem Steel plant was planned for the spring semester along with speakers from local business firms. $okn Marshall Pre-Caw Club The John Marshall Pre-Law Club was founded on the Muhlenberg campus in November, 1932 by Dr. Henry R. Mueller. The organization became inactive during World War II, but was reorganized in 1 953. The chief objective of the organization is to give the pre-law student a better un- derstanding of the legal profession for which he is preparing. This purpose is ac- complished by inviting various local attor- neys and representatives of law schools to lecture to the group during the year. Among the outstanding guest spea kers were Judge Kenneth Koch of Allentown and deans of various law schools. The advisor to the John Marshall Pre- Law Club is Dr. J. Edgar Swain, head of the History Department. Membership to the club is open to any student who is in- terested in the study of law. ROBERT HODES President CARL SCHNEE Vice-President LEWIS SCHWARTZ .

Vice-President ROBERT MENGEL Secretary MERRITT REIMERT Corresponding Secretary WILLIAM GLICK Trea surer H. DUNSETH WOOD Advisor During the Spring semester of 1950, the Commuters ' Club was established by ap- proximately fifty local students. The club was organized with the purpose of provid- ing commuters with all the possible priv- ileges of camp us life and of creating stu- dent interest in the social and extra-cur- ricular aspects of the college. One of the high points of the organiza- tion ' s social calendar was an informal dance held in the student center. Although the club is still young, it is ac- complishing its purpose; many of the mem- bers are active in sports, class offices, Stu- dent Council, social and honorary frater- nities and departmental clubs.

Before, After, Between Classes ■jpU WEEkLVs here! ■ to gain a standard for the appreciation of other men ' s work , and the criticism of your own Muhlenberg ' s football team, coached by Tom Triplett, began its 1955 season with a small squad of 26 men, and although opposed by squads much larger in size, managed to match its wins and losses, ending the season with a 4-4 record. The squad was beset with injuries midway through the season, bringing the active player list down to 21 twice during the campaign. Players had to be shifted from their normal positions, while in- experienced players saw action in circumstances that would have been trying for the more experi- enced squad members. - v The 1955 Muhlenberg football season was ushered in at Taylor Stadium in Easton where the Lafayette Leopards splashed to a 7-0 verdict over the Mules on a rain-drenched field. The Leopards ground out the game ' s only score in the second quarter. Thereafter the Mules tried valiantly to knot the count, coming within the Lafayette eight yard line at one time, only to be thwarted by the Leopard forward wall. Although Berg could not get its offense started, the defense, led by Paul Billy and Tony Saddler, showed a lot of solid power. The Mules opened their home football season by rocking the Albright Lions, 26-13, to break a four-year Albright jinx. Berg ' s offense, led by sophomore quarterback Dick Cornish, completely outmanuevered the visitors from Reading. Three of the four Berg scores came on aerials from Cor- nish; halfback Bobby Lee scoring two and end Don Herman the other. The remaining touchdown was tallied by Jack McDonald who played his usual strong game. Cornish, getting his first real chance at quarterback, was nominated for " Un- sung Hero " award. Tackle Tom Naratil and end Don Herman were outstanding for Berg both on offense and defense. In their second appearance at Muhlenberg Field, Tom Triplett ' s gridders ran over an out- manned Lebanon Valley squad, 32-0. The game was played on a Monday afternoon because of torrential rains which forced postponement of the Parents ' Day tilt on the previous Saturday. In the early moments of the game Berg pounced on a Dutchman fumble and turned it into a 6-0 lead on a pass to Werkheiser. The next Mule score was set up on a 37-yard run by Jack McDonald on a pitchout from Cornish. McDonald scored again just before halftime to give the Mules an 18-0 lead. In the second half, Coach Triplett fielded a whole new team, which also walked over the tired Dutchmen, Tony Caporale and Harry Newman scoring touchdowns. The Mules journeyed to New Brunswick, N. J., to meet Rutgers University for the fifth time in this series. The Queensmen proved too formidable an opponent as they swept to a 21-0 victory. Leading 7-0, Rutgers scored on the last play of the first half to lead at halftime, 14-0. In the sec- ond half Rutgers added another seven points as they went 81 yards for the score. A bright spot in the Muhlenberg lineup was center Paul Truran who was awarded the " Unsung Hero " award for the week because of his outstanding defensive play in recovering two fumbles and intercepting a pass. A large Homecoming Day crowd was on hand to witness Berg ' s encounter with Gettysburg. The Mules scored early and took a 14-0 advantage. However the Bullets tallied twice before the half to knot Ihe count at 14 apiece. In the second half any dreams of an upset were shattered when the Bullets rolled up 39 points, while holding Muhlen- berg scoreless. The final score was 53-14. The Cardinal and Gray played host to visiting Scranton University, hoping to get back on the win track. The game was marked by savage line play. Scranton, with the heavier and more experi- enced forward wall, hammered out a 25-12 ver- dict. This was Berg ' s last defeat of the season and brought its record to two wins and four losses, with two games remaining to be played. As usual Don Herman played a stellar defensive game and was nominated for the " Unsung Hero " award for that week. At Temple Stadium in Philadelphia the Muhlen- berg gridiron eleven posted a 7-6 victory over the winless Temple Owls. The Mules dominated the game throughout the first half, but missed several scoring chances. Midway in the third quar- ter Berg finally pushed across a score with Frank Lerro scoring from the four yard line. The Owls came within inches of tying the count with four minutes remaining in the game, scoring on a long pass. The try for the extra point hit the goal-post and the Mules held on till the final gun. Jack Mc- Donald ran roughshod over the Owls forward wall as he gained 127 yards from scrimmage. For his superlative work he won the coveted Maxwell Trophy, the second time he has done so in his foot- ball career. The all-around work of Dick Werk- heiser, Don Herman, and Paul Truran also was outstanding. The Mules closed out their 1955 football season with an exciting 18-13 victory over the Franklin and Marshall Diplomats at Lancaster. Berg rolled up a 12-0 lead in the first half, and it looked as if a romp were in store. However a spirited second half rally by the Diplomats gave them a 13-12 margin with ten minutes remaining. Then the Mules took over and marched from their own 35-yard line to the winning score. Hard charging fullback Tony Saddler led the assault as he ground out a large percentage of the vital yardage on thrusts through the center of the F and M line. Nine seniors ended their football careers at Berg and will be greatly missed next year. Ends Tom Coughlin and Bob Gimble, tackles Tom Nara- til and Don Grammes, backs Jack McDonald, Harry Newman, Frank Lerro, and tackle-fullback Tony Saddler played their last games in Cardinal and Gray uniforms. The most outstanding of the group is Jack McDonald, who won the Most Valu- able Player award at Berg for three consecutive seasons, and mounted up over 1300 yards in his fours years, 516 just in the 1955 season. McDon- ald was also the leading scorer in his sophomore and senior years. Center Paul Truran, though underpublicized, will also be missed greatly next season. He performed admirably as defensive linebacker in his last three seasons. Tony Saddler, who won the Maxwell award last year for his stellar offensive play in Berg ' s upset of Delaware, was converted from tackle to fullback, where he performed well in time of need. Coach Tom Triplett resigned as head coach late in November, ending a five-year span as head football coach at Muhlenberg. His five-year record at Berg was 14-25-2, although the last two seasons he led the squad to 4-3-1 and 4-4 won- loss marks with less than 30 players each year. Freshman Football Coach Milo Sewards ' freshman football team, working a short but tough four-game schedule, dropped its first two contests played on opponent gridirons, but won its last two games at home to end the season with a respectable 2-2 record. The little Mules showed lack of experience as they were downed by a well-drilled Lafayette freshman team, 12-0, and by Hofstra, 27-15. In the Hofstra game, the Mules were behind at half- time 20-2; and, although they couldn ' t catch the opposition, they showed potential scoring strength. Berg ' s yearling eleven took advantage of a fumble and a blocked punt to beat Scranton, 18-14. The Mule freshmen had to come from be- hind, as the visitors led, 14-12, until late in the last period. In their final game of the season, the freshman gridders played a stirring second half to notch their second win, a close 19-12 decision over Temple ' s freshman team. Duane Miller led the team in rushing and scor- ing. Dave Jones, George Frank and Bill Rowe also starred in the backfi eld. Don Noveck and Bob Hieter were among the more outstanding linemen. Cross Country Muhlenberg ' s varsity cross country team won its first meet since 1951. Coach Harold Parker ' s thin clads, strongly bolstered by last year ' s freshmen team, nipped Franklin Marshall, 26-29, at Lancaster. After this ini- tial win, the varsity hoofers dropped three straight meets. However, unlike previous years, Berg ' s losses were closely contested. The next two meets held at Cedar Park were with Berg ' s perennial opponents, Lafayette and Lehigh. Lafayette, surprised by Muhlenberg ' s im- provement, won by the score of 25-36. ' Berg, plagued by injuries in the Lehigh meet, could not cope with the strong running of Duane Jennings and the boys from Bethlehem. At Reading, a week preceding the Middle Atlantics, Muhlenberg bowed to the Albright Harriers, 23-34, headed by Middle Atlantic two-mile champion. Bill Shirk. The Mule harriers ' great improvement was due mainly to sophomores Bill Kile and Jerry Slack. Running almost side by side throughout the season, this duet finished in the top four places consistently. They received ade- quate help from senior John Keyser who was never far behind them. Bob Nuss ran fourth for ' Berg and finished within the top ten consistently. Ron Moxey finished out the first five. Ron Newcomer and Will Bodine added depth to the Mules ' thin team. Muhlenberg did not fair too well in the Middle At- lantics, which was run on the soggy Cedar Park course. St. Joseph ' s again won the meet. ' Berg ' s best perform- ance was turned in by Bill Kile who took twentieth place. ' Berg ' s team should have more depth next year as close to ten freshmen runners were out testing their en- durance. This squad, led by Bob Sabol, although not winning any of its meets, showed a great deal of promise. Besides Sabol, Chic Smith, Bill Horrocks, and Ron Sussex showed the hustle which should help the varsity next year. Soccer In gaining a record of four wins four losses and a tie, the Muhlenberg soccer team finished its best season since 1947 when the team ' s record was 3-2-1. The booters exhibited a real will to win this year, inspired by Coach Bud Nevins, who experienced his most successful season since he came here in 1 952. In the season ' s opener, the booters lost to F. M, 4-0. The visitors were held to a slim 1-0 margin in the first half, but came back in the final half to pour three goals through the nets. The Mules traveled to Wilkes College in the next scheduled game and were literally blown off the field as high velocity winds and rain forced the game to be called at halftime with the score tied at 0-0 In their next contest, the Bergmen took their scoring wraps off, and a star of the future was revealed, as sophomore Ted March scored all three goals to lead his teammates to a 3-2 win over LaSalle. He scored the deciding goal in the closing minutes of the game with the score deadlocked at two apiece. This was Muhlenberg ' s first soccer victory in 16 games. The taste of victory was taken from the Nevins- men as a highly vaunted Haverford team scored at will and defeated the Mules, 7-1. Again March accounted for the Cardinal and Gray tally. Victory came the second time against the Leopards from Lafayette as outside right forward Dave Washabaugh pulled the game out of the fire by kicking a goal with only seven seconds remaining in the game, thus proving that March wasn ' t our only scoring threat. The Mules then traveled to Delaware, and goalies Bruce Wile and Frank Jankowski com- bined efforts to register their first shutout of the season the Blue Hens were downed, 2-0. A powerful Rutgers squad jolted the high riding Bergmen, scoring a 6-1 win. Vic Kotun scored the lone Muhlenberg goal. Coach Nevins took his men to Lehigh only to be shutout by his alma mater ' s squad, 3-0. In experiencing their second shutout of the season, the Mules showed signs of reverting to their early season trouble of not taking advantage of scoring chances. However the soccer team finished the season in fine style, downing Stevens Tech by a score of 2-1. Al Zanetti broke into the scoring column as he, along with Ted March, led the Berg attack with a goal apiece. Eight seniors graduated this year, leaving Coach Nevins short of manpower for the 1956 season. Dave Washabaugh, Vic Kotun, Bill Fatemi, Ken Reinhart, Dave Michels, Bruce Fran- cois, Earl Trumbauer, and Frank Jankowski were all on the starting eleven this season. Halfback Ken Reinhart, although his name never appeared in the scoring column, was without a doubt the team ' s most outstanding player, as he " saved " many games with his outstanding defensive play. Reinhart played every minute of every game in the 1 955 season. Basketball The Muhlenberg basketball team got off to a successful start in the 1955-56 campaign by scor- ing an impressive 88-53 triumph over Kutztown State Teachers College. The victory proved to be a costly one as the Bergmen unveiled a brilliant new star in sophomore Ed Emery, then watched him limp off the floor midway through the second half with a foot injury that kept him out of action for most of the season. Emery led all scorers with 21 points and played a superb defensive game. The visiting teachers made it close during the first half, but then the Cardinal and Grey poured it on after the inter- mission as Birney Crum cleared the bench. Cardy Gemma contributed 20 points to the landslide vic- tory. Birney Crum pulled another Sophomore star out of the hat as his cagers surprised the LaSalle Ex- plorers 69-58. He was Clint Jeffries, who started in place of the ailing Ed Emery, scored 18 points, and led the Mules in the important rebounding column. Gemma played his usual stellar floor game, and added 17 big points as the Cardinal and Grey bested LaSalle for the first time since 1947. In their second home appearance, the Mules out- fought Wagner 86-79, in what proved to be a rous- ing battle. Down by as much as 13 points in the early stages the fast-breaking Mules led by Cardy Gemma and Clint Jeffries moved to within 2 points at the half. With six minutes gone in the second half, the Mules finally surged ahead 53-51, never again to be headed. Jumping Jack Clint Jeffries was again high man with 24 points. The record book was in for a pounding as Muh- lenberg steamrollered Lebanon Valley 109-91. The 109 point total was the highest ever registered by a Mule quintet. Denny Roth and Bill Smith were tied for scoring honors with 24 points. The Mules gave Birney Crum an early Christmas gift by brushing past Moravian 97-85. The first half was nip and tuck, as the Greyhounds lost an early lead to the hard-charging Mules. Bobby Gall led the attack with 25 points. He was ably assisted by Bill Smith with 21 and Clint Jeffries with 20. In their last appearance before vacation the Berg- men lambasted the Delaware Hens 106-82, in a warm-up for the Holiday Tournament opener with these same Blue Hens. Jeffries and Gemma spear- headed the rout with 25 and 22 points respectively. In the first round of the Hofstra Invitational Tour- nament, the third seeded Mules (ranked behind Hof- stra and Iona), blasted Delaware 87-69. With Clint Jeffries setting the scoring pace, and controlling the backboards, the Bergmen raced away to a 13 point lead in the first ten minutes of play. Jeffries was the top scorer with 25 points. Moving into the second round of play, ' Berg ran its victory skein to eight by walloping Springfield 93-76. Not since the 1944-45 quintet won its first 1 1 games have the Mules gotten off to such a fast start. In the battle of the unbeaten in the tourney finale, Hofstra (10-0) walloped ' Berg before an overflow crowd, 91-78. The Mules, way off in their shooting couldn ' t get started and were faced with a 7 point deficit. Hofstra, hitting on 56% of their field goal attempts (compared to ' Berg ' s worst showing of the year 35%) couldn ' t be stopped and won going away. Jeffries tallied 18 points to lead the Mule pointmakers for the third straight game. Despite a furious second half rally that v iped out a 1 1 point deficit, ' Berg bowed to St. Joseph ' s Hawks 76-71 before a packed house at Memorial Hall, to bring their season ' s record to 8-2. The Mules went to their dressing room trailing 37-28. Coach Crum yanked all of his regulars except Gemma to start the second half. " Birney ' s Bench " stormed to a 53-51 advantage halfway through the last ses- sion. However the Hawks (N.l.T. bound) went on to take the tilt with 6 straight free throws in the last minute. In their first appearance in Madison Square Gar- den in recent years, the Mules dropped a heart- breaker to Manhattan 85-79 in overtime. The Jas- pers broke into an early 15-4 lead, and despite a rally by the Mules which tied at 30-30, assumed a 40-34 halftime lead. The Bergmen surged back and took the lead for the first time at 54-53. From then on it was see-saw until the final 20 seconds when the Jaspers tied it on a layup. In the overtime, Man- hattan bucketed the first five points, and clung to the victory. Bobby Gall topped the Cardinal and Grey point produces with 22. In a deliberate, dull game, the Mules broke their three game losing streak by smashing Scranton 79- 57. Momentarily stymied by Scranton ' s slow type of play, the Mules scored only 4 points in the first seven minutes and dropped behind 10-4. After ty- ing the contest at 18-18, ' Berg finally pulled ahead to stay on an 8-point splurge by Bill Smith, Denny Roth, and Clint Jeffries. The Bergmen traveled to Easton to meet the Lafa- yette Leopards in the first game of the rival ' s home and away series. Although the Mules hit on 44% of their floor shots, and enjoyed their best night of the season from the foul line, they walked off the floor on the short end of the 87-81 count. The Mules trailed throughout, and only the excellent outside shooting of Bobby Gall, who had 25 for the night, kept them in contention. In a surprisingly close ballgame, Birney Crum ' s crew won out over stubborn Bucknell 93-80. It was touch and go in the first half until the last few min- utes when sharp-shooting Bobby Gall led his mates to a 45-38 half-time lead. With Gall still spearhead- ing the Mules, a 14 point margin was rolled up. Crum then cleared his bench and the ' Berg reserves finished the contest. A fired-up Mule quintet pulled one of the prize up- sets of the year by pushing Temple University out of the unbeaten class 67-66. With a half-minute left in the game Clint Jeffries sunk two foul shots to give Muhlenberg a three point lead and victory. Muhlenberg proved that its performance against Temple was no fluke as they trounced a good Col- gate five, 90-74. The Mules rolled up an early ad- vantage and coasted to their twelfth victory in six- teen games. At Gettysburg, the Mules bowed to Gettysburg College in an upset as stunning as their own con- quest of Temple. The Cardinal and Grey played well enough to win most encounters hitting on 42% of their shots. An amazing display of accuracy by Gettysburg ' s Al Teti, who scored 42 points, and hit for 63% of his shots overshadowed anything the Mules could do. The Mules bounced back to subdue a stubborn Albright five, on the latter ' s home court, 97-84. Al- though holding a 14 point advantage at half-time, the Bergmen were so riddled with fouls, that three starters sat out the beginning of the second half. The Lions finally knotted the count at 53 all, but the reappearance of Gall, Roth and Jeffries turned the tide, and the Mules won easily by a comfortable 13 points. At Memorial Hall the Mules dropped a hair-raiser to the Lafayette Leopards in a return engagement, 58-57. Unable to break through Lafayette ' s stiff zone defense, the Bergmen dropped 1 1 points behind in the first half. However, a second half rally finally brought them the lead in the final minute. Gall and Jeffries with a dozen markers apiece led the cool ' Berg attack. LaSalle, 1 1 point victims of the Mules early in De- cember, avenged themselves, and took the Berg- men by those same 1 1 points. The Explorers leading 57-56 midway through the second half, broke the game wide open by scoring 15 points while all the Mules could muster were 3 foul shots by Bill Smith. The Mules cracked the century for the third time as they laced Bucknell 100-86. The Cardinal and Grey rolled to a 58-37 halftime advantage and squelched a Bison comeback in the second half to rack up win number 14. Denny Roth was high man with 21 points. Clint Jeffries and Ed Emery had 1 7 apiece. Tournament-bound Seton Hall was too much for the Crum-men and breezed to a 79-66 decision. The Hall ran up an early 13 point margin and were never seriously threatened after that. Hustling Bill Smith topped the Bergmen with 14 points. The powerful St. Joseph ' s Hawks toppled the Mules 74-63 at the Penn Palestra. St. Joe led throughout, and although the Mules closed to with- in two points early in the second half, they couldn ' t match the Hawks under the boards, and dropped their second game to them of the season. Traveling to Hempstead Long Island, the Mules failed to avenge themselves, and dropped a heart- breaker 67-66 to Hofstra. Jeff again sparkled as he poured in 22 for the Cardinal and Grey. Denny Roth followed with 18 points and some fine rebounding. The Muhlenberg basketball squad rang down the curtain on the 1955-56 campaign by trimming Gettysburg 84-74. The win avenged ' Berg ' s earlier loss to the Bullets, at Gettysburg. Bob Gall finished out the season in fine style scoring 22 points and playing a consistently smooth floor game. Clint Jeffries hit for 19 points, running his season ' s total to 403. Thus he became the second player in ' Berg history to surpass the 400 mark, in a single season. The Muhlenberg wrestling squad, hampered by lack of depth and constant injuries, gave Coach Ernie Fellows little to be proud of during the regular season, as they finished with a dismal 1-9 record. Hopes for a winning season were high at the out- set of the wrestling season on the strength of a good nucleus composed of junior Middle Atlantic champ Frank Gutierrez, junior Paul Billy and soph- omore Don Simpson. However, the team was se- verely handicapped by the recurring football injury of Gutierrez. In the first meet of the year. Temple edged out the Mules, 21-15, when 167 pounder Dick Cornish developed a stomach disorder and had to lose by default. Gutierrez and Billy each pinned their man to complete the scoring. An over-night journey to Colgate went for naught as the New Yorkers compiled a 33-2 win. The only points for the Bergmen were gathered by Don Simpson on a draw. Gutierrez, who had won 23 consecutive matches, lost on default because of stomach trouble. In the Gettysburg attraction, the Mules were again trampled, 28-5. The Muhlenberg points were taken by a Simpson decision and a draw by Billy. The only win of the year came in a 18-14 decision over Buck- nell. Although trailing, senior Don Grammes, wrestling, in his last collegiate meet, pinned his man to bring victory to Muhlenberg. Individual victories were also taken by Phil Levan, Simpson and Billy. The Mules were on the way to another win against Haverford but because of a forfeit in the 167 division, lost an 18-14 meet. Senior Art Franzblau picked up his first win in the 137 class. Simp- son and Billy again followed with wins and sophomore heavy- weight Hank Fretz scored a decision for his first victory. During the remainder of the season, much of the responsibility was placed upon Simpson and Billy. Gutierrez returned to action for the Ursinus meet and won a decision. Heavyweight Roger Keehn won his only meet on a pin in the same outing. Despite the poor team record, the matmen were confident of a good showing in the Middle Atlantic tournament which was held in Memorial Hall. When the annual attraction was finished, the Mules were in fourth place among eight squads. Gutierrez advanced one division and for the third consecutive year took a champion- ship position, this time in the 167 class. 177 pound Billy likewise finished in the select group by scoring a 7-5 decision over Sells of Gettysburg. With " the departure of only seniors Art Franzblau, Don Gram- mes and Ed Kunkel the 1957 squad should sport a much better record on the strength of the returning nucleus of middle weights and a good looking squad of freshmen led by Dick King, Pierce Knauss and Jim Waller. Track Lack of depth was once again the downfall of a win- less Muhlenberg track team. This year, however, the sparseness of the thinclads was serious enough to have George Lawson, director of athletics, call a meeting of the coach, trackmen, and alumni board to discuss the future of track at Muhlenberg. The board decided to continue the scheduled meets. In the first encounter of the season the Mules were downed by a powerful Albright squad, 92-33. The only bright spot in the Cardinal and Grey ' s attack was the fine showing of sophomores Ted March and Bill Kile. The only victory for ' Berg was in the 100 yard dash as Bob Lee broke the tape in 0:10.5. Muhlenberg then took to the road engaging Franklin Marshall at Lancaster, and Bucknell at Lewisburg. The Mules made their best showing of the year against the Diplomats going down to defeat by a 75-51 count. Bill Kile displayed a lot of talent and determination winning the mile, 880 and 2 mile runs. Other firsts for ' Berg were posted by Ted March in the shot put and Gabby Williams in the discus. Bill Kile gathered 13 points against a well- rounded Bucknell team but was lost to the team for the remainder of the season because of an injury he con- tracted at the end of the 2 mile. Ted March and Clint Jeffries were the other Mules to cop victories as ' Berg lost 85V2-39V2. After a practice meet at Easton with Lafayette, Ernie Fellows ' crew traveled to Gettysburg for a triangular meet with the Bullets and Lehigh. It was a dismal day for Muhlenberg as they were able to accumulate only 6I 2 points to Lehigh ' s 81 and Gettysburg ' s 671 2. Returning to their home field, the Mules lost to Dela- ware 93-32 as Denny Roth was the only Bergman to score a first. Terminating their season against Ursinus, the Cardinal and Grey bowed 86-40. Herm Zieger bowed out of collegiate competition by winning the pole vault and the broad jump. John Keyser completed his athletic career by notching seconds in the mile, 880 and 2 mile. Other seniors who competed under the colors of Muh- lenberg for the last time were Gabby Williams and Bob Roehm. Freshman Basketball Muhlenberg ' s freshman basketball team, un- hampered b the ailments which beset other Berg teams, concluded an envious season with a fine 14-4 record. Only Lafayette, Brown Prep, Albright and Bucknell were able to turn back the Mule frosh, and three of these four defeats appeared after rebounding and scoring ace Clarence Houck left the College for scholastic reasons. Houck had averaged 23.1 points per game for the first eleven encounters. Mel Kessler, an outstanding New York City lad, finished as Coach Dick Schmidt ' s leading point gainer. He tallied 441 points in 18 games and reached an amazing peak of 40 points in the en- counter with Brown Prep. Diminutive Steve Matell revitalized the team during a minor slump and personally accounted for 344 points in 17 games. Matell drove and set with equal ability; his speed and deceptive change of pace offset his lack of height. Matell and Kessler, as sophomores, will be valuable additions to the senior Muhlenberg court squad. In three contests, the junior Mules triumphantly handed their opponents losses which reached above the 100 point mark. The single major riv- alry of the season, two games with Lafayette, saw the freshmen split with the Easton school. In the first occasion, the Lafayette freshman squad barely managed a two point edge to win one of the hardest fought games, 73-71 . In the return en- counter, the Mules heartily trounced them 87-64. Fencing Muhlenberg, in 1956, won its first fencing match since entering the intercollegiate competition in 1954 by edging Haverford, 14-13. This was the single win for Coach Andrew Erskine ' s fencers against four losses dur- ing the 1956 season. The Mules best showing was in the epee class where Bill Wormley notched a season record of 9-3. Wormley made the best Muhlenberg showing in the Middle At- lantic competition when he paced the squad with a 1-4 record. Dave Washabaugh followed with a 4-7 record. Muhlenberg did no better than to manage a final place in over-all competition but was placed third in the epee division. The only other Berg fencer to top the 500 mark dur- ing the season was George Goldenbaum in the foil divi- sion with a 7-5 tally. Neighboring Lehigh handed the fencers their loss, while Philadelphia ' s Temple squad next overcame the Bergmen. Recovering remarkably, the Mule squad out- pointed the Haverford team when Ace Adams, Wormley and Washabaugh scored clean sweeps in their contests. The final loss of the season was to the Middle Atlantic champions, Hopkins. Of those who competed in the MACFAC during the 1956 season, only Dave Washabaugh and Jake Huegel were lost through graduation. I t Baseball The Muhlenberg baseball team, under the guidance of Coach Joe Petro and with the valuable pitching of Tony Saddler and hitting of Dick Leber, finished the 1956 season with a 7-11-1 record. The Mules ' outstanding pitcher al- lowed only 16 earned runs and 53 hits in 76-2 3 innings, and two of Saddler ' s wins were brilliant one-hit shutouts. The burly backstop, Leber, led the club in practically every division and tied with Ron Hoehmann in the runs-batted-in classification. The baseballers opened the season by splitting a pair with the University of Pennsylvania. In the first game, Tony Saddler spun a neat one hitter blanking the Red and Blue, 2-0. The Mules dropped the second game, 4-2, with Ed Wasmuth and Charles Takas handling the pitching chores. The third battle, with the Naval Academy, produced Saddler ' s first loss of the season. He pitched effectively at times but was generally wild, walking ten and whiffing nine. In the bottom of the eighth inning. Navy clinched the game by scoring three unearned runs via three walks and several outfield errors, to win 6-4. The next two losses were handed the Bergmen by Delaware and Gettysburg. In the G-burg classic, ' Berg scored twice in the second inning and held only a brief lead. The Mules ' joy was short lived, Gettysburg countered also in the second and won, 6-2. Delaware won the other easily, 5-0. After their fourth straight loss, the Bergmen ' s revital- ized efforts won them a one-run margin over the F M Diplomats. It was Bill Smith who emerged from the ' Berg bull pen to relieve Saddler and aid the 6-5 win over Frank- lin and Marshall. The Mules clinched the game in the eighth by scoring four times. Bill Keehn and Frank Peters walked, Dick Leber then doubled scoring Keehn. Lefty Corneliess followed with a single, driving in Peters. Corneliess and Leber were permitted to score the final runs on Tom Weber ' s squeeze bunt and Ron Hoehmann ' s single. The next three games only added three more losses to the ' Berg record. Wilkes College, Mora- vian and Colgate out-managed the Muhlenberg lineup. Lehigh ' s Engineers, weary from too much slide- rule work, fell prey to Muhlenberg as the Cardinal and Grey lads warmed up for their fourth win and upset of highly touted Lafayette, 6-0. Saddler in this game struck out ten men and permitted only one hit. The Mules backed Saddler nobly as Cardy Gemma singled, Leber walked and red-hot Frank Peters lashed a three-run homer in the first inning. This win bolstered the record to 4-6. Before the return encounter with Lafayette and a loss, the Bergmen tied Albright, 7-7 and edged St. Jo- seph ' s 3-2. Ed Wasmuth pitched the game with the Read- ing Lions until the sixth inning when the neighboring batters started to slice at the ' Berg lead. Tony Saddler replaced the tiring Wasmuth and pitched the remainder. The 7-7 deadlock came in the 14th inning after Saddler had thrown six and two-thirds innings of shutout, two hit ball to run his scoreless inning streak to 15-2 3 in- nings. In the other game, Mule pitcher Charles Tackas after a third inning trouble spot managed the Hawks handily. The winning ' Berg run was caused by a fluke single off the bat of pinch hitter Bill Smith in the final inning. Then Lafayette avenged the early season loss to Muhlenberg, 5-0, and to pitcher Tony Saddler. Saddler, pitching the complete game, was unable to successfully manage the Leopard batters this time as he gave up nine hits and six free passes. Of the four hits which the Bergmen tallied. Haps Leber was responsible for two. After a single win against Swarthmore, 5-1, the ' Berg diamond nine lost three successive games to Buck- nell, Moravian and Lehigh. The Moravian game, a pitch- er ' s duel, provided Saddler with another loss as he gave up but four hits. In the Lehigh encounter, the Engineers reversed an earlier 7-2 defeat at the hands of the Mules by belting four Berg pitchers for a 20-5 victory. The Mules completed the season in a winning fashion, pushing over four runs in the ninth to edge Temple 8-7. Leber supplied the big punch at the plate for the Bergmen, chipping in with two singles and a home run. The 12 hit, eight run attack represented the Mules ' best offensive display of the season. Veterans Tony Saddler, Lefty Corneliess, Frank Peters, Tom Weaber, Ron Hoehmann and Bob Fritsch played the last games for Muhlenberg, leaving a gap in the pitching staff and the entire regular infield.

Highlights of the evening were the presentation of intra- mural awards, remarks by Muh- lenberg president Dr. J. Conrad Seegers, and the presentation of a special award to the outstand- ing Mule athlete of the year by the student publication, the Muhlenberg Weekly. Tony Saddler, a senior from Irvington, N. J., who was a standout in both football and baseball over the past year, won the " Weekly " trophy. The gala affair was marked at its end by a sober note as Ernie Fellows addressed a few words of farewell to the group. The popular mentor, who has acted in a coaching capacity in football, cross-country, wrest- ling, and track at the college over a span of fifteen years, severed his connections with Muhlenberg at the end of the school year. Sme follows Zklrty-two Seniors Snd College Athletic Careers Reprinted from Muhlenberg WEEKLY, May 24, 1956. Thirty-two varsity letters were awarded to members of the senior class this past year. Of these men five were double letter winners. The football, soccer, and baseball teams will suffer the greatest losses of all Muhlenberg athletic squads losing nine, seven, and five participants respectively. The gridiron squad will lose some of its great- est men as notables. Jack McDonald, Tony Sad- dler, Frank Lerro, and Paul Truran receive their degrees two weeks hence. Other graduating foot- ballers are: Tom Coughlin, Bob Gimble, Don Grammes, Tom Naratil, and Harry Newman. Graduates leaving the Mule nine are: Lefty Corneliess, Bob Fritsch, Frank Peters, Tony Saddler and Tom Weber. Ron Hoehmann also is leaving the diamondmen to complete his three-two engi- neering plan at Columbia. Bud Nevins ' booters will begin next season minus Bruce Francois, Frank Jankowski, Vic Ko- tun, Dave Michels, Ken Reinhart, Bill Fatemi, and Dave Washabaugh. Dave Arnold, Alex Szewczak, and Earl Trum- bower will leave the tennis team to its fate. The Cardinal and Gray thinclads will be minus top scorers, John Keyser, Herm Zieger, and Gabby Williams. Andy Erskine will have to look feverish- ly for replacements for graduating Jake Huegel, Bruce Francois, and Dave Washabaugh. The wrestling team of ' 57 will need a new coach and men to fill the gaps left by Art Franz- blau, Don Grammes, and Ed Kunkel. Anthony Russo and John Keyser are the only men depart- ing from the golf and cross country squads. The class of 1956 can boast only one three let- ter winner. Bruce Francois has lettered in soccer, wrestling and fencing during his four years at Muhlenberg. Men who have taken letters in two sports are: Don Grammes (football and wrestling), John Keyser (cross-country and track), Tony Sad- dler (football and baseball), and Dave Washa- baugh (soccer and fencing). During the four years these men have spent at ' Berg many memorable incidents have occurred. True, the over-all sports record has gone down, but the football team finally got a better than losing record in the past two years, soccer has become a winning sport and the baseball squad had an outstanding 10-5 record in 1954. These thirty-two men have all added greatly to the Muhlenberg sports picture. For their many feats and determination they all deserve a re- sounding applause from the school to which they have so generously contributed. ■ to make hi among the men who are to be le Alpha Kappa Alpha President . . . .

Stine Alpha Kappa Alpha is the only honorary fraternity which has the distinction of being founded on the Muhlenberg campus. This philosophy group meets bi-monthly at the home of its founder, Dr. Russell Stine, at which time faculty and guests are invited to deliver a talk on some subject within the broad definition of philosophy— " a love of wisdom. " Discussions and refreshments fol- low the addresses. This semester, the group discussed several topics of particular interest to the student body. Among these were: " Philosophy of Science, " " A Philosophy of History " and " The Mind of the Middle East. " Every year AKA sponsors a symposium at which time a panel of men discusses some specific philosophic subject. This meeting is always held in the Student Center so that a large body of both faculty and students are enabled to attend. The speaker for this year was the notable Dr. Nasrollah Fatemi of Princeton University. For practical purposes the Editors have excluded from this volume several areas of campus life which was considered ex- traneous. The omission of honorary fra- ternity pictures was caused by several scheduling errors in May of 1956. For this, the Editors are sorry. Jilplw Psi Omega Alpha Psi Omega is a national honorary fraternity for those whose interest in dramatics is more than passing and who have made significant contributions to the success of Muhlenberg productions over a period of at least two years. Because of the stringent requirements for admis- sion, membership in the local chapter (Gamma Mu) has remained small since its founding in 1930. Proficiency in acting is not essential. Indeed a man interested solely in acting has little chance for membership. Candidates must demonstrate their willingness and ability to work on the business staff or production crew as well as to take curtain calls in leading roles. The organization is purely honorary and has no function but to serve as an award for meri- torious service in Muhlenberg dramatic activities. Therefore the chapter, as such, takes no part in selecting or producing the college plays, these functions being performed by the Mask and Dagger Club. Sta Sigma Phi OFFICERS President Joseph Donchez Secretary William Bleckley Treasurer Charles Wescoe Advisor Dr. Edward B. Stevens Eta Sigma Phi, the national honorary classics fraternity on campus, was formed in 1931 as an outgrowth of the Classical Club. The basic purpose of the fraternity is to incite and develop in- terest in classical study and to provide better relations among students interested in the classics. The highlights of 1956 center around the Christmas party, films of ancient Greece and Rome, the representation of Muhlenberg ' s Alpha Rho Chapter at the National Convention in Birmingham, Alabama, the presentation of medals to local high school students who have shown outstanding ability in the classics and the annual banquet with Mrs. Alice Talmadge of Cedar Crest College as guest speaker. Other events were interesting informal talks given by the honorary faculty members of the fraternity. One of the most significant achievements of the year was the renewal of joint programs and further solidification of relations between Cedar Crest and Muhlenberg. i r l I SZf v T I 14 L T( M Omieron " Delta Kappa As one of eighty-nine units in the national honorary leadership society for men, the Muh- lenberg College circle of Omieron Delta Kappa observed in 1955 its twenty-fifth anniversary of activity upon this campus. ODK, as it is known, recognizes and encourages activity in five major phases of college life: (1) scholarship, (2) student government, social, and religious affairs, (3) athletics, (4) publications, (5) speech, music, and dramatic arts. Membership is awarded to seniors, juniors, and faculty men who administer the service proj- ects of the circle, there being different projects for each year. The group, which ordinarily meets every other Saturday morning, sponsors an annual member ' s banquet and sends representatives to the national convention. OFFICERS President Theodore A.

The local chapter had its beginnings in February, 1926 as a local history club and was nationally recognized in 1929. The fraternity is composed of members of the history department, approved history majors, and other students who have shown a continuing interest in advanced history courses. The meet- ings are held monthly at the homes of one of the faculty members. At this time papers are read by students or programs involving faculty members are presented. This year the group was co-sponsor with Alpha Kappa Alpha of a lecture held in the Student Center. A high point of the year was the address of Dr. Fatemi of Princeton on the subject of " The Mind of the Middle East. " Among the other topics discussed were " The Wilkes Booth Conspiracy " and " The Factors in the Rise of Fascism. " Phi Sigma Jota Phi Sigma lota, founded by Allegheny College in 1922, boasts today of forty-three active chapters. The purpose of the society, which is noted for its high standards of admittance, is to en- courage high scholarship, individual research and the promotion of amity between our nation and the Romance language nations. The society supports two scholarships for the study of Romance languages: one of $500 for graduate students, and one for $150 for undergraduates. It also con- ducts a yearly essay contest. The ' ' News Letter, " Phi Sigma lota ' s national publication, was founded by Dr. Anthony S. Corbiere of Muhlenberg College. Lambda Chapter at Muhlenberg College was installed on December 5, 1 928 through the efforts of Dr. Corbiere, head of the Romance Languages Department, who was National Historian from 1927 to 1952, Editor of the News Letter from 1929 to 1952, and Executive Secretary from 1952 to date.

Stenger Pi Delta Epsilon is a national journalism fraternity which operates at the collegiate level among the several publications on the Muhlenberg campus. It invites juniors and seniors who have been active for two semesters in a campus publication to accept its code of journalistic ethics and thereby membership. The functions of the group are both service and honorary. The primary goal is the mainte- nance of harmony and a high standard of journalism among the publications. These goals are realized through discussion of problems as they arise. The fraternity ' s major service project of the college year is the editing and publication of the " M " book. Outstanding sophomores in the field of journalism receive invitations at the close of their sophomore year. Met fraternity Council Ever since its formation in the 1920 ' s, the Interfraternity Council has functioned as the in- tegrating body among the social fraternities on the campus. 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. The Interfraternity Council sponsors interfraternity sports competition, and awards trophies to the winning fraternities in football, basketball, baseball, and bowling. The IFC also awards a trophy to the fraternity with the best float in the annual Homecoming day parade in the fall. The IFC Ball was an outstanding feature of the spring social season.

HAGEN STAACK Alpha Mu lota was organized as a local fraternity on the Muhlenberg College campus on September 30, 1955. Formerly the Upsilon Triton Chapter of Phi Sigma Kappa, Alpha Mu lota became a local organization so that it might remain non-sectarian in its practices. Unfortunate- ly this was a privilege that was not afforded them under the wing of the national organization. The chapter house is located at 401 North Twenty-third Street where sleeping accommoda- tions are available for thirteen brothers. The commissary provides the brothers with three meals daily. Improvements have constantly been made on the house, beginning with the newly re- modeled basement and party room right up to the third floor. In one year. Alpha has taken its place among the other fraternities on campus in extra-cur- ricular activities and social events. The athletes of Alpha did quite well in intramural and intra- fraternity sporting events despite many drawbacks. The house parties and planned school week- ends were enjoyed by all who attended. Very few will forget the Junior Prom weekend and the Alpine house party. Brothers, pledges, and their dates will re- member many good times during the past school year and are looking forward to many more in the future. The men of Alpha Mu lota sincerely hope that the principles of brotherhood and co-existence that are so dear to them will continue to flourish and the Fraternity will continue to grow in the future with the men who will represent it as is called for by the true fraternal spirit.

The frater- nity was created at Richmond, Virginia, on September 1 1, 1865. The Alpha lota chap- ter at Muhlenberg is the second oldest chapter north of the Mason-Dixon Line, and is the oldest on the Muhlenberg cam- pus. The seventy-fifth anniversary of the founding of Alpha lota was celebrated on April 7, 1956 at the Hotel Traylor. Almost three hundred alumni and actives were present at the affair. Of particular interest was the initiation this year of Alpha lota ' s nine hundredth brother, John T. Coughlin, on February 10, 1956. Socially, the chapter began its year ' s activities with a Diamond anniversary celebration for alumni. This saw the start of a series of social successes with Home- coming, Soph-Frosh Hop, and Senior Ball following suit. Junior Prom was marked by the crowning of ATO Sweetheart, Sue Seibert. The social year was ended with IFC Weekend (which was attended by many bearded brothers) and Graduation Ball. On February 20-22, Alpha lota took great pride in playing host to IFC speaker. Dr. Cole of Williams College. Both sessions were attended by large audiences from Muhlenberg and Cedar Crest. The chapter was indeed pleased to be such an integral part of the most successful IFC program in years. Brothers in Alpha lota took on Community responsibility in distribution activity in the Can- cer and Heart Fund appeals. Not only in these activities but in all campus projects and organi- zations, the brotherhood of ATO was seen working to maintain the lofty traditions of the local chapter and to better promote Muhlenberg College to the fine traditional heritage of which her sons are justifiably proud.

This club was in existence un- til 1922 when it became the Phi Epsilon local fraternity. The Phi Epsilon Fraternity operated on the Muhlenberg campus until 1931 at which time it became the Theta Kappa Nu National Fra- ternity. In the summer of 1939 the Theta Kappa Nu and Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternities merged nationally. A meeting of the alumni and active members o f Theta Kappa Nu was held and it was decided to invite the Delta Theta Local Fraternity, and the Philo ' s Club to join in the merger. Delta Theta had been a local fraternity on the Muhlenberg campus for forty-two years and had a very large alumni group. The Philo ' s Club was organized at Muhlenberg in 1926. These three organizations, the Philo ' s Club, Delta Theta, and Theta Kappa Nu merged in 1940 to become Nu-Epsilon Zeta Chapter which now resides at 407 North Twenty- third Street. Since that time continued im- provements throughout the house have been made until now an adequate, com- fortable home exists which houses nine- teen brothers easily. The commissary with its cook, serves three meals daily to the brothers and pledges during a five day week. Lambda Chi again proved its worth on the intramural football field as they cli- maxed another undefeated season and re- tained the Intramural Football Trophy. The softball team also compiled a fine record and captured the Interfraternity Softball Trophy. The year ' s social season began with the annual Fall Formal which was held at the Americus Hotel. Senior Ball and its accom- panying houseparty added another bright affair to the year. Particularly outstanding was the Junior Prom weekend which fea- tured a Hawaiian theme. The year was brought to a close with the Lambda Chi annual spring picnic.

In its twenty-four years on campus, the Alpha Nu Chapter has strived unceasingly to maintain an upstanding program socially, athletically, scholastical- ly, and fraternally. During the 1955-56 year the Muhlen- berg Chapter hit a new high in member- ship with forty-nine fraters and a pledge class of twenty. With the increase in size. Phi Ep continued to further the high ideals for which they stood in the past. The " Pep Boys " were active in all phases of campus activity, and showed particular excellence by attaining the highest combined broth- er-pledge average. The present Chapter house at 44 South Fulton Street underwent a major improve- ment program which included new plumb- ing, a new roof, exterior and interior painting, renovation of the cellar, and many new furnishings. Work also has been started on im- proving the kitchen which now accommodates thirty-eight brothers for three meals a day five days a week. The Phi Ep parties during this year, as in the past, were gala affairs enjoyed by all the brothers and their guests. Homecoming weekend was particularly outstanding as many Alumni attended the Pajama Parade and Saturday houseparty. A good time was had by all at the Senior Ball weekend and the Junior Prom weekend. Interfraternity Council weekend was also outstand- ing as the fraters went western, complete with beards for the IFC Plantation Prom. PM Kappa Zau 1955 President IRV THOMAS Vice President ....

On March 31, 1914, Alpha Sigma Club was organized with headquarters on Hamilton Street in Allentown. Finally, on September 17, 1914 recognition as a Fraternity was received from the Faculty with the understanding that Alpha Sigma obtain a Charter from a National Fra- ternity within two years. It was from this time on that the word " Club” was discarded and the organization used the term " Fraternity. " With the approval of the Faculty, it was decided to ascertain whether Muhlenberg College was within the expansion policy of Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity and an answer was received invit- ing Alpha Sigma to join as a Chapter in Phi Kappa Tau. Alpha Sigma was formally installed as Eta Chapter of Phi Kappa Tau upon the completion of the initiations on Friday, March 22, 1918. Eta Chapter has gained community recognition through its work in the fund Drives for the Lehigh Valley Crippled Children Associa- tion and the annual Christmas party for the children at the Good Shepherd Home. Phi Tau had an outstanding year social- ly. Highlights included the Senior Ball and Junior Prom weekends, especially the French Apache House party Junior Prom weekend. The feature of the social pro- gram was the Annual Phi Tau Spring For- mal held at the Brookside Country Club. Phi Tau proved to be outstanding in the vocal department as they won the first an- nual IFC Spring Sing. The Brotherhood of Eta Chapter shall proudly continue to maintain the fine tra- ditions of Phi Kappa Tau and of Muhlen- berg College in future years as they have in the past.

Wood Sigma Phi Epsilon National Fraternity is now in its fifty-fifth year, having been founded at the University of Richmond, Virginia on November 1, 1901. Today it has become the third largest national fra- ternity in existence. The Pennsylvania Iota Chapter came in- to Muhlenberg life on April 10, 1938. Ex- cept for a brief interlude caused by World War II it has been in existence ever since. In 1953 the chapter located itself in the former residence of Dr. and Mrs. Edgar Swain on North Twenty-third Street. The " House with the Red Door " for the second consecutive year won the IFC trophy for the best float in the homecom- ing parade. Sig Ep ' s entry of a huge dra- gon feasting on Gettysburg football play- ers was an outstanding float. Sig Ep has many brothers and pledges on college athletic teams and is also proud of its members taking part in various cam- pus organizations. Currently the house has twenty-five brothers and 28 pledges on its roster. These brothers and pledges combined to enjoy some of the best social events on campus. The outstanding parties were the Homecoming and Junior Prom weekends. Sigma Phi Epsilon has an excellent intramural sports record. They have been finali sts in basketball for two consecutive years and have won the I.M. crown in softball for the past two years. These outstanding achievements have been brought about by the outstanding spirit shown by the brotherhood in all its endeavors. Sig Ep will lose some of its outstanding brothers by graduation, but due to the stellar pledge class, the future of the men who wear the Golden Heart will be secure. The brotherhood is look- ing forward to another outstanding year and to promoting fraternity friendship in all its under- takings. Muhlenberg Seniors’ We saw you at The Muhlenberg Proms YE OFFICIAL CLASS WILL— 1956 1956 gives and bequeaths to every liver- lillied (per se) mother ' s son amongst you — to every several man — 2500 dinks from the class of ' 36. Moreover it hath left you all its walks, private arbors, and newly planted lawns on this side Cedar Beach over which to drive your autos. You all do know this gavel. I remember the first time Wee Willie Quay ever wielded it. ' Twas on that night in C-Hall, the eventide he overcame the nervy guys. See how ' tis broken. Here where Michelfeld hath made a rent. See here the envious Keys hath cut a niche. Here the itchy Steiger plucked. This was the most un- kindest cut of all, for when the noble Willie saw him cut, ingratitude more strong than traitors ' arms quite vanquished him . . . and muffling up his mantle ' bout his face, even at the base of Schlittler ' s statue, which all the time ran good fellowship brew. Wee Willie fell. Oh, what a fall was there my Bergmen. It wouldn ' t have been so bad but the statue fell on Willie, and so in typical Good Shepherd fashion he cried " Et tu yu Wolf, " and leaves his broken gavel to Wolfgang Amadeus von KoenigshafFen. To each and every Bohemian on campus (actually, there is only one and it isn ' t Gabe Hornstein who " nose " all, and the other Eng- lish majors who are faking it) . . . anyway, to Hot-lips Paul Sherr, Howie Frank leaves his beret, dark glasses, smoke rings, serious-picture look, and blue-suede shoes. To Calvin Anthony Michael Colarusso, one Dirk Miller (commonly called Dick Miller among other things unprintable) leaves those two essen- tials without which the Sickly would not have been able to come out each week with its usual fine upstanding, standtaking bonelessness and boneheadedness. These are his scissors and his paste pot. While in the literary vein, Jack Hopper, whose seat of learning is well known on campus, and who can be seen in all the club photos in the Ciarla, leaves that unusual gift which he utilized to the fullest in revitalizing the Arcade from a small depressing magazine to a large depress- ing magazine. That gift is his unwieldy vague- ness and his intellectual cliches ' left to a worthy successor — Portzebie Dave Miller. Getting away from the literary scene and going to verbal spleen, Herm Ziegeroonie is be- queathing his pole and his many wives to Harvey Gigelo Stein. Herm is an excellent vaulter, and his many jumps and infrequent stands are renowned throughout the East. Recently elected Worthy High Fatso of the Men ' s Dietary Commission, Tiny Irv Kerson gives his frame and Chas. Atlas physique to Harry Blaze, a truly worthy and fatting benefactor. Padre Robert Keys, noted Pre-Theo and Med- ium High Churchman, leaves his piety and pie- eyedy (see Student Body Banquet) to a recent nominee for Grand High One in Alcoholics Anonymous — one William Amey, who is a very Hi Churchman. In brief: Frank the Jank leaves his borrowed pencils to Bill Keeny; Dick Gross leaves his de- pleted treasury to Bob Hodes; Bob Fritch leaves his batting average to the Math, department; V. O ' sadchy leaves his deflated basketball to Del Park; Bob Roehm leaves his Red Sox pennant to General Pete; Alex SZEWCZAK leaves his Scrabble board to Terry P Y P I U K; Herb Kasnitz leaves his beaming personality to just any sucker; Pete Lord leaves his baton, folded hands, tear-filled eyes, sore knee, and broken record to Bert Meyers; Harry Cesco leaves his dirty beakers to Doc Smart; Sam Haines leaves (thank goodness or something); Joe Donchez leaves a one-year library pass to Al Hettinger; and Al and Ted are leaving too before the eggs start flying from the guys we skipped in this fine and official (bonafide) class will.
