Smith, Secretary THE measure of success is not so much the beginning as the end. How did you finish? A good start gives impetus, and when its advantage is seized by those who have the ability to finish strongly the consequent accomplishment merits pride and respect. The class of 1933 was, from the start, destined to command attention. Under the guidance of President Ralph Rowland the freshman class held a smoker and a dance which were unusual in their success. Jack Schaye was elected to leader- ship in our sophomore year. And it was in this year that the present leaders of ' 33 were called upon to meet challenges and to display those qualities of leadership which were later to merit their selections to prominent positions in the student government on the campus. We proceeded to win the flag rush and a cane spree with little difli- culty. For the first time in the history of the school six sophomores were appointed to the Senior Ducking Committee. To advertise our social functions, a class news- paper, "Blah" was printed. lt at least had the distinction of being the first newspaper ever printed by a class. When a fund for the new Heights Gymnasium was created, the class donated two hundred dollars. Sy Male's efficient management enabled us to be the first class in the sale of freshman caps and ties. Clearly, the class of ' 31 had done pioneer work. lt had made an auspicious start and had won the respect of the school. lt could now rest on its laurels or forge ahead. ln 1930, jack Schaye was re-elected to the presidency. After holding a successful dance at the Hotel New Yorker, the class was rewarded for its achievements. Presi- ...4 65 5... 'Fife THE VIGLET Jfiw dent Willing of the Senior Class, '31, presented the "Class Bun" ro the Class of ,33 for having been outstanding on the Campus. The men of ' 3 3 remained consistent, and in their junior year again proved their superiority. Jack MacDonald was chosen chairman of the Mall Committee, an organ- ization dreaded by all underclassmen. The class newspaper "Blah" reappeared and our social affairs were continued successfully. The Palisades Prom was brought back to the campus, and under Wilfred A. Waltemade's direction wiped out previous debts. The junior Prom, held at the Essex House, through the efforts of Bert Sway- bill and Bill Miller, was a commendable success. On May 6th, Schaye was elected President of the Student Council and of the Student Senate, james Dalton was elected Vice-President of the Student Council, George Kastner was chosen Secretary of the Student Council, and Roger Squire became President of the Senior Class. Roger had previously been Vice-President of the Junior Class, and it fell to him to carry on to the finish, and to manifest the grandeur that was '33. On February 21st, the senior and junior classes sponsored a dance at the Heights gymnasium for the benefit of the student loan fund. A Senior Week has been planned which promises to end the reign of '33 in a burst of glory. The Senior Ball is to be held on May 6th at the Hotel Plaza, the boat ride and the dinner will take place dur- ing the week of june 4th. The outstanding '33 men in athletics are jack MacDonald, football and baseball star, Mortimer Reznick, intercollegiate and National 35-pound hammer champion, and also a Phi Beta Kappa man, Bernard Krosney and Sam Mothner, track men, Don Shearer of the baseball team, Tom Aronowitz, a member of the football team, Milton Gitenstein, varsity swimming captain, Captain Bert Swaybill, manager of the tennis team, and Allen Swayze, captain, lack Delmonte, on the lacrosse team, DiGiacinto, Gilbert Weil, Grautoff, and Zimmer, all on the fencing squad. We have had a representative class, well-balanced in its activities. Under the leadership of its successive presidents it has achieved for itself renown. Its one re- maining duty is to carry on its tradition, and by so doing enrich its Alma Mater through the fame of her sons. -4 66 ,g... -ia, THE VIOLET Jive GEORGE S. ABRAMSON, Arts New York, N. Y.

'33 -4 172 y--4 JA., THE VIOLET Ji' The Senior Ball If Daniel Levy Therese Getlar Co-Chairman Prom Girl THE SENIOR BALL of the Class of '3 was a uniquely successful affair. It was held on Saturday, May 6th, at the HotefPlaza situated at the south end of Central Park at Fifth Avenue. This year, rather than havin the ball the evening after graduation, as had been customary, the committee decidid it would be wiser to hold the affair early in May. This change obviated the diiliculties that previous senior classes had experienced, for there were nine hundred persons present at the ball. Almost every senior attended, besides a great many members of the Heights faculty. The Plaza is one of New York's best-known and most exclusive hotels. It has a commanding view of beautiful Central Park and of the whole length of u per Fifth Avenue. The spacious ballroom, simple and very attractive, is on the third floor and is reached by the grand staircase from the private entrance on the first floor. The well-appointed lounge rooms and foyers were another attraction of the evening. Enric Madriguera and his internationally-known orchestra provided the music for the ball. I-Iis smooth, rhythmic melodies accounted for the fact that during the Reginald Rader Eleanor Mendelson Co-Chairman Prom Girl ...ar 173 5... W, THE VIOLET t-Fifa evening almost everyone present danced continuously. The popular Enric Madriguera played his original arrangement of the Palisades while the traditional promenade took place at midnight. Dancing continued until three o'clock. Reginald Rader, E ' 3, and Daniel Levy, A '33, were the co-chairmen of the ball. Miss Therese Getlar ol? New York, whom Mr. Levy escorted, and Miss ElC2111Or Mendelson of Smith College and New York, who attended with Mr. Rader, were the Prom girls. Members of the Ticket Committee were Harry Melnick Qchairmanb, Kenneth S. DuMond, Oliver Hiester, Samuel Cmennet, Seymour Plaster, and Leonard Smiley. ' The Reception Committee consisted of Arthur Stitt, Cchairmanb, George Huy, Anthony Caputo, Ellwin Goldberg, Harvey Meyer, and Seymour Male.

The first outstanding event of the class was to establish itself as the last class to paint its numerals on the old viaduct. Bloody Monday found our class in proud possession of the Sophomore president and in open rebellion against Sophomore rules. A class smoker, a Frosh "hop," and blazers soon afforded us the means of acquiring the much desired "collegiate" atmosphere. The Sophomore year started most auspiciously. Led by Charles Gebhardt, the Sophomore president, the incoming Freshmen were quickly subdued. The Frosh, young as they were, knew better than to appear without the regulation apparel, and their numbers were great enough to give the campus a decidedly brighter color. In the modified Bloody Monday activities the class of '34, led by Bill Nielson and his cohorts, succeeded in winning four out of the seven main events. Two dances were held during the year both of which proved to be great social successes. The men of '34 came back last fall determined to enforce junior traditions, par- ticularly that of keeping the Mall Mclean." The Mall Committee was quickly formed and, under the capable leadership of Nic Barbieri and Harold Jacobson, lost no time in maintaining the sanctity of the upper classmen's promenade. Members of the committee became expert paddle wielders, and on one occasion a water hose was employed to "clean" the Mall. ...iz 177 5... THE JUNIOR CLASS WR, THE VIOLET 1-H0 In the realm of sports the junior class has several outstanding men who have dis- tinguished themsclves. Bill Abee starred at half-back on the Frosh team in his Freshman year and has continued to do so as a member of the Varsity under both the Meehan regime and the Cann system. Peter Zeremba, who this year placed third in the National Olympic tryouts in the hammer throw and won the Intercollegiate title in this event, has also been a member of the Varsity eleven for the past two years. Our crack trackmen are George Weinstein, who won the 70 yard Intercollegi- ate dash in his Sophomore year, and George Spitz who continues to break records in high jumping. Class teams in intramural sports have been supported with spirit and enthusiasm and have attained a fair degree of success. The Junior year has brought forth three splendid social fetes, the Palisades Prome- nade at the Hotel Delmonico, the Junior-Senior Dance at the Gym, and the much- talked of junior Promenade held at the Essex House on April 29th. Under the leadership of Bob Barry for the past year the class feels that it has carved a deep niche into the annals of University History. ln years to come we will continue to foster campus traditions and put Forth every effort toward the betterment of our Alma Mater.

THE VIOLET Jif' The junior Promenade The Co-Chairmen and Prom Cvirls ROFUSION of color, soft lights, and the sweet strains of Paul Sabin's orchestra greeted the fortunate ones-fortunate in being able to attend the swankiest Heights affair of the year-who strolled eagerly, but with assumed leisure into the beautifully decorated Essex House in Central Park South. To those who had never before tasted of the elegance offered by the exclusive hotel, the sight of such unsur- passable charm was a revelation. Althou h plans had begun to be formulated as early as january, and the inviting features ofgthe Prom had been thoroughly described, no one could. deny that justice was not done in the description. The dance floor, a sunken affair illuminated by a myriad of lights, affected the appearance of a glimmering pool, with beautifully-gowned girls and their smartly dressed escorts seemingly dancing lightly over the water. The slightly raised portion of the floor, encircling the dancers, offered a means of relaxation and a view of the festivities. The Promenade was graced by a number of prominent members of the faculty, among whom was Dean Collins Bliss who, with Mrs. Bliss, led the grand midnight procession. An early date for the Prom, April 29th, was chosen with the intent that the damping inHuence of hnal examinations should in no way mar the exuberant spirits of the guests. Continuing such good judgment, the committee arranged a carefully prepared supper, a wise selection of favors, and a commendable choice of orchestra. The Prom girls this year were Miss Naomi Annis, escorted by Milton Leven, and Miss Rita Cave, accompanying john Sheridan. The supper-dance was pronounced highly successful and satisfactory by all, and will remain long in the memory of the junior class. ...4 180 p- 12lili Ile Sjopgomore 'M 4 gg is 'lib THE VIOLET 59, The Sophomore Class History Ernest Stout, President Henry Petterson, Uice-President - Burton Richardson, Jr., Secretary THE Class of Nineteen Thirty-five has had a most successful year under the able leadership of its president, Ernest Stout. Last year Stout organized a dance which the class supported whole-heartedlyg last fall the class again distinguished itself by sponsoring another very successful dance. In neither of these two dances was there a financial deficit, which is indeed a most unusual record. Urged on by these past accomplishments, plans are being made for another dance to be held in the spring. When college opened last September the campus was provided with an abundance of purely local color by the addition of a large number of violet caps and an equal number of orange ties. The freshmen who were wearing these articles of dress continued to do so until "Bloody Monday" which this year came on a Friday. This occurrence of a Monday within a Friday proved a bad omen for the class of thirty-five Through the fickleness of fortune the freshmen left the fray victorious. In sports there are several men from the class of thirty-five who show signs of being outstanding in the next two years of their college careers. A few of these men are Mielke and Walz who have been prominent in football, Naurocki in basket- ball, and Steinbiss in swimming. ...r 183 3...

FRESHMEN SHALL memorize these rules and shall wear them in a conspicuous place at all times. FRESHMEN SHALL NOT walk on the sidewalks, the grass, or the mall. FRESHMEN SHALL NOT wear any high school or prep school insignia. FRESHMEN SHALL NOT dress themselves in knickers, fancy sweaters, or other loud clothing. FRESHMEN SHALL NOT smoke on the campus. FRESHMEN SHALL NOT hold bull sessions or gather in large groups on the campus. FRESHMEN SHALL NOT cause any disturbance on the campus, nor act unlike a college man. It is the right and duty of the Class of 193 5 to enforce these rules.

The new gymnasium at the Heights was the ball room, and the spacious Hoot was soon filled with couples dancing to the melodious music su lied by George Ellner and his band. The affair was planned and arran ed b an able committee under the chairmanship of Henry Pettersson. The girl wlgom he escorted was Miss Blanche Montague. Several fraternity banners adorned the otherwise bleak walls. Suspended from the ceiling in the center of the floor was another banner, filled with vari-colored balloons. At eleven o'clock dancing gave way to special entertainment. The former N. Y. U. varsity quartet was on hand and san a grou of five numbers which were heartily applauded. One of the members ofg the orcfilestra then gave several char- acterizations of stage personalities including Baron Muenchausen and Zazu Pitts. The entertainment was concluded by a brother and sister act of singing and tapdancing. At midnight the suspended banner was released and for a moment there was a scramble to catch the balloons as they floated slowly down to the floor. Dancing continued for another hour, and at the close it was generally admitted that the even- ing had been an eminent social success. ...r 135 5... iyze Efesgnian CASS 604.555 WR, THE VIOLET 50. The Freshman Class History Robert Leonard, President Malcolm Roberts, 'Uice-President Charles A. Speer, Secretary IN September of 19 2, over six hundred men started their college careers as mem- bers of the Class of? 19 36 with the determination and ability to become the greatest class the Heights has ever seen. . The class, after several defeats in encounters with sophomores, became partially united, and then proceeded to show its prowess by subduing the over-confident second-year men in many battles. On October 21, the traditional encounter between the freshman and sophomore classes took place. Bloodless Friday, substituted for Bloody Monday, proved to be an entirely successful day for the Freshman Class. Merril Eisenbud and Harold Edelstein were outstandin in the cane-spree events. The Class of 1936 has a right to be proud of the fact tfiat it has u set tradition by conquering the sophomores. Caps and ties were discarded directly ager the victory. On December 9, the class again showed its sufperiority over the sophomores by winning the annual using." Outstanding among reshman athletics was the capture of the Heights championship by the '36 Art's Basketball Team, captained by Leonard Maidman. 1 On December zz, the first Frosh Dance was held in the gymnasium, and proved to be successful. On Friday evening, May 5, the Class of 1936 held its first formal affair at the Astor Hotel. 4 These accomplishments, however, are only a small indication of what the Class of 1 36 expects to achieve in its remaining years at college. With the start that it has Fad, it should not be difficult for the Freshman Class to set its permanent mark on the pages of College history. ...r 189 5... TI-IE FRESI-IMAN CLASS sir, THE VIOLET Cfgw The Y. M. C. A. Freshman Camp HE first Freshman Cam was conducted by the University Y. M. C. A. as an ex eriment in the fall 051927. The camp proved so worth while that it was decided, to continue it annually. lt is now an established part of the college program with the enthusiastic support of the students and faculty. College life presents, to the man qualihed for it, a great opportunity. A con- siderable portion of those who enter college fail to realize as fully as they might the unlimited resources at their disposal. Some spend too much time in college activ- ities, others not enough, some, strange as it may seem, study too much, others too little. The Freshman Camp helps the new man to make the most of his four years at the University. Even more important is the opportunity given the Freshman to become acquainted with most of his classmates and a number of upper classmen and members of the faculty in the informal atmosphere of camp life. The camp is located on the shores of a privately-owned lake on a fifteen hundred acre tract situated near Huguenot, Orange County, New York. The camp is excellent- ly equipped and includes a lodge for social purposes, in which the so-called "bull-scsf sions" take place. These "bull-sessionsi' are probably the most beneficial diversions in which the Freshman indulges at the camp. At these sessions the leaders have an opportunity to instill in the Freshman the spirit of the institution in which he is about to enter. Certain it is that no person who has ever attended the camp will deny the fact that the four days spent there were some of the most enioyable that he has ever spent in his entire college career. ...4 191 t... 'RQ THE VIOLET Ji' The February-September Freshman Class p----uv-v -vu f. -Y 1 . , - - --Him. The February-September Class GREAT many students are graduated from New York high schools in the month of January. In order that those who wish to enter college upon gradua- tion may do so, a February-September freshman class has been organized at the Heights. This class begins in February, at the start of the second semester, and con- tinues through the summer until the beginning of the next school year in September. It has been repeatedly said that the men in this class are "Freshmen and yet not Freshmen." It has been pointed out again and again that these men have not drunk of the Fountain of Knowledge on l'lallowe'en Eve, that they are immune to the traditional Freshman Rules, and absolved from wearing the traditional freshman costume. This may all be trueg and one may venture the guess that the regrets of these "under-freshmen" are not over great. It is admitted that they are, to some small extent, an isolated group, but they do not find great difhculty in mingling with their initiated colleagues. Because they are not treated with calculated scorn it is barely possible that they do not feel themselves freshmen as consciously as do the wearers ofthe cap and tie. During the summer months their burden is eased somewhat by the abandonment of Saturday classes. Tennis tournaments and other intraclass sports are arranged for their amusement. Their classes are small, they have the campus to themselves un- restrictedlyg they come into closer contact with their teachers Qwhich seems an easier task during the summer months than during the bleak winterj, and so they are, in the final analysis, as complete a art of the College as are those who have gone before them through the regular school year. And the Heights campus is surely not so disagreeable a spot when it is in full bloom, nor is it possible to conceive of a more pleasant director than Mr. Distler. ,nr 192 y.- xfigr and HQZZOHZ UM -iii, THE VIOLET ,go The Library T seems that a surprisingly large number of students at University Heights are frequently found at the Library. Many who enter are not bibliophiles nor are they engaged in research, instead their wanderings are directed to the post office for second class matter or to the Gould Auditorium. Nevertheless, seldom does a week pass without finding-at least once during the course of the day--that all the seats in the large rotunda are occupied by students who stare with furrowed brow into a pamphlet or a weighty tome. The Library, since its construction in 1894, has been the scholastic and social center of the campus. Each hour hnds students upon the Library steps enjoying their hard-earned rest in non-academic discourse. The University authorities have tried to direct this popular form of extrafcurricular activity to the Lounge at the periphery of the campus, but their efforts have been in vain and the steps are still the roost of loitering students. Although the primary function of the Library is the collection and custody of books, it has served other purposes. ln it we find the Auditorium in which students have their only chance to meet as a unit, and in which class business can be discussed. Likewise, psychology and music classes meet in that portion of the structure which was originally designed as the museum. The intended plans for the establishment of this museum, for reasons unknown, but most probably pecuniary, never saw ful- fillment, and all that remains of the aborted museum is the curving corridor whose walls are adorned with photographs of celebrated statues and cathedrals. In its inception ten thousand books constituted the entire library, but in the en- suing years the number has grown, until now, under the direction of Professor Theo- dore F. Jones, there are one hundred and forty thousand volumes. The purchase of books has been made possible by an endowment of six hundred thousand dollars and an annual subsidy of eight thousand dollars from the University. This sum compared to that which other college libraries have at their disposal seems small, and even the minor sports which are surely not a greater asset to the University than the Library require nearly as much to carry them through their seasons. Naturally, such a scarcity of money frequently must result in a proportionate paucity of books. The function of the Library, originally, was to be threefold. There was to be a sufhcient number of books to satisfy the needs of the undergraduates, there were the needs of the graduate students to be considered, and finally, the Library was to supply the faculty with adequate material for research and study. ln this category are included the innumerable works pertaining to chemistry and biology, for each of which there is a separate custody maintained by the individual departments of the University college. This triple purpose also explains the frequent necessity for students to pursue their investigations at the public libraries. Funds, always difficult to obtain in sufficient quantities, and which would usually be spent to meet the stu- dent's needs, are divided proportionately among all three academic groups. The Library, however, is not wholly dependent upon a subsidy, but is also the ...r 193 5... Six-. THE VIOLET 51' beneficiary of several donations, among which are included the Fanny Eddy Brown Collection of contemporary verse and the Huntington Hill Collection. Likewise that campus group, the Eucleian Literary Society, has also done much to increase the Library's collection of modern literature. Students who boast of familiarity with other famous libraries--notably the New York Public Library-may have remarked upon the poverty of general reference matter. The Encyclopaedia Britannica and perhaps one or two more minor items of similar kind constitute the total encyclopaedia collection. The directors of the Library at University Heights, however, realizing the value of such compendiums and other comprehensive collections of material, have obtained, besides the encyclo- paedia mentioned, many others which, although of lesser note, are equal in research value. Little can be said of the other branches of the bibliothecag however, the publica- tions catalogue and index can be compared to those found in the most efficient libraries today extant in America. The Library has gradually become the most important and necessary institution on the campus, a position to which it is rightfully entitled. It is an obvious necessity to the student and faculty bodies, and Professor Jones, in satisfying this need to the extent he has with the resources at his command, has accomplished a titanic task, the proportions of which are only too seldom appreciated.

It has, more than anything else, given New York University nation-wide renown, and deservingly so, because it not only perpetuates the memory of great men, but in its very perpetuation achieves an educational significance. By inscribing names of great Americans in the Hall of Fame, interest in them is provoked, people investigate the life of the man brought to their attention, his accomplishments, and, naturally in sequential the-history of his times. The Hall of Fame owes its existence to matters more prosaic. The Halls of Languages and Philosophy, together with the Library are situated upon the edge of a cliff, and to complete the group the architect suggested that a colonnade be con- structed. At first, the University authorities were indifferent to a plan which would necessitate the expenditure of a large sum of money. Chancellor MacCracken then conceived the idea of a Hall of Fame for great Americans. This plan did not share the fate so common to many other excellent suggestions, chief among them, the creation of a university museum. It was realized when Mrs. Finley J. Shepard's gift permitted the architectural plan to burst into tangibility from its blue-print paper. There are in the colonnade one-hundred and fifty panels, in which bronze plaques may be fastened bearing the sayings of some great man inscribed upon them. Above each plaque there is a niche for the bust, which is usually donated by a society inter- ested in the choice. Originally fifty panels were to have been inscribed in 1900, and with the completion of every fifth year, five more were to be added. If this procedure were accurately followed, the colonnade would be completely occupied exactly one hundred years after its inception. Since there is no compulsion exerted upon the electors, the full quota of selections has not been reached. At present there are only sixty-one busts in the Hall. Were the plan followed rigidly, the con- stituency would be eighty. At the present rate, the latter half of the twenty-first century will see the consummation of the Hall of Fame. The colonnade is divided into six portions, each being devoted to a specialized field wherein men have distinguished themselves. ln these divisions fall authors, scientists, inventors, teachers, jurists, statesmen, and soldiers. Unfortunately, the list is not comprehensive enough. Men who could not very well ht into any of the categories mentioned would, of necessity, be denied a deserved position in the Hall of Fame. Among these are artists, philanthropists, financiers, and others of promi- nence, who, by their accomplishments, are entitled to be classed as great Americans. The unveiling of busts is attended by formal and dignified ceremonies. Usually, if the weather is favorable, the unveiling is held in the open stadium. If the weather is inclement, the chapel becomes the scene of the solemnities. Because of its eminence, the Hall is now generally regarded as public property, the University merely serving as custodian. Since there are numerous Americans who qualify for a position in the colonnade, and since the total amount to be selected is only one hundred and fifty, it is obvious that the election should be a matter of public interest and concern. Therefore, specifications enabling one to become an ...4 195 g... WR, THE VIOLET QE' elector are nearly as important as those required of the nominee. The election is held by a body of high ideals and representative character. From artists, authors, editors, historians, scientists, jurists, public officials, and individuals of renown who do not fall into any of these groups, the Senate of New York University chooses one hundred electors. Anyone connected with New York University is ineligible to serve in this capacity. Obviously, the choice, lest it be an unsatisfactory one, must be governed by many restrictions. From the electoral body there is selected a Committee on nominations numbering twenty-one men. This group confines its activities to eliminating the less worthy candidates suggested by the public. The committee then investigates the merits of the remaining men more thoroughly in order to decide whether they fulfill all the qualifications, in this way the list is shortened to a less unwieldy size. Thereupon, it is submitted to the electoral body, which, after deliberation, makes the ultimate selection. The final result is then forwarded formally to the Director of the Hall of Fame. Approximately ten years ago there was instituted a new regulation which further limited the choice of men. It was decided that, besides other obvious qualifications, the proposed nominee must have been dead at least twenty-five years before his name may be suggested. This measure permits the electors to judge the importance of a man in true perspective without being influenced by any temporary notoriety he may have achieved. This rule permits greatness to be tempered by time. The ideal of the Hall of Fame has been studiously followed by its two directors. Chancellor MacCracken, who first proposed its construction, became its first adminis- trator. He was succeeded in 1919 by Dr. Robert Underwood johnson who has followed the example set by his predecessor. The goal of these two men was to demonstrate to the public the value and significance of the Hall of Fame. More than a football team, more than any single outstanding university figure, it has given to New York University national recognition. The Hall of Fame is America's graphic answer to Europe's contention that the United States is inhabited solely by bankers, athletes, and beautiful women.

HMM. fwonzfzqtfzfet dit, THE VIOLET Jia NEW YORK UNIVERSITY D HY WS i T r Sidney Freidberg Bennett Brown Editor-in-Chief Managing Editor, Heights EMERGING with renewed vigor and assurance from a struggle against factional interests which menaced its continued existence in the spring of 1932, the NCW York University Daily News blossomed out in the fall in a new format, with a new banner at the masthead and new life in its columns. The standard-sized page with its staid seven column array has given way to a tabloid-sized sheet of five columns. The number of pages was increased from four to six in order to accommodate the overflow of news items and the abundance of features and personal columns. The severe unadorned top was replaced by a two-line black-letter masthead, illustrated by a familiar view of the Hall of Fame colonnade surmounted by the dome of the Gould Memorial Library. The change in appearance was accompanied by a profound change in the character of the reading matter and the nature of the editorials. The News had not found a satisfactory method of eliminating the vast confusion of notices and announcements which poured in upon and past its editors to swamp the columns and transform the newspaper into a colorless bulletin. Smug little blurbs of no interest to nine-tenths of the college still constituted the bulk of the reading matter: "The X Society will be addressed on Thursday, December 5, 1932 by Mr- CDF-l M .... on the subject of .... All members are urged to attend." ...ir 199 5... 'Fila THE VIOLET Ji' The same item appeared in three suc- cessive issues with a mere alteration in tense of the verb from future to present to past. Although unable to disregard this va- riety of news completely, the Daily News succeeded in consigning to it a smaller pro- portion of space. The editors introduced several compensating attractions to relieve the dullness of the routine news. It was a series of human interest stories, of feature articles, and of personal columns on every conceivable topic, directly or remotely con- nected with N. Y. U. Articles such as: Joseph M, Lobel "Co-eds buy their own lunches News Edftoy But chisel cigarettes in bunches." found their way into the columns, striking the correct note in the objective presentation of the facts with a mildly humorous quirk. Several series of articles upon questions which greatly interested the student body were introduced at opportune moments. Among' these were stories of Soviet life, written in an earthy and emotional strain by a student who had apparently lived in Russia, a series of tales of the late unpleasantness at Shanghai by a student who had been a combatant, and the adventures of a reporter posing as a down-and-outer in Search of a job and shelter. The introduction of such timely topics into the columns reflected favorably upon the ability of the editors as well as upon the writers who succeeded in making their stories fascinating. There was an abundance, even an excess, of personal columns in the 1932-33 Daily News. The stage, movies, radio, intramurals, sports, music, and humor all had their 'interpreters in the newspaper. The columns were written, in general, in a breezy but interesting fashion and, at least in the case of the radio column, did seek to link even the most remotely connected fields with the interests of N. Y. U. A column on feminine fashion served a double purpose, providing instruction for the co-eds at Washington Square, and amusement for the students at University Heights. The ever-popular "Collegiana,l' a bright column of college exchanges, was retained from the preceding years and proved to be as interesting and entertain- ing as ever. f "Violet Rays" underwent a complete metamorphosis and appeared as a daily column. Formerly an indiscriminate mixture of good, mediocre, bad, and horrible poetry, and serious, humorous, whimsical, and nonsensical prose, it lost its amorphous character and devoted itself entirely to a rude, brittle variety of humor. Although the column gained much by the acquisition of a definite tone, its humor was marred by too much crudeness and too little spontaneity. Only too often the column ...Q 200 5... 'fin THE VIOLET ,yaiw seemed to have been written in a hurried, slovenly fashion in order to meet an im- pending deadline. "Violet Rays" might very well be used as a vehicle for light, and more or less whimsical personal essays without the brusque, heavy-handed humor which has characterized the column in the past. The real find of the year was the "Gadfly," a column which, it was hoped, would become a permanent feature with the samehigh standards which it maintained in its first year. Nurtured at first by the editorial staff, it became the property of the students who have seized upon it as a pulpit for proclaiming their views and airing their grievances on the existing order. It became an arena of written debate upon collegiate, social, economic and political issues of national and international scope. A series of articles upon liberalism and upon the elections, as well as a heated pro and con discussion of the value of Military Science featured the first semester of the column's existence. Mention must be made of two well-written and exceedingly thoughtful articles: "So this is Civilization," and Ulntimations on Immortality." The sports columns, "Around Ohio Field," and "Sporting Sportlights" were written in frank imitation of the jargon prevalent in metropolitan newspapers. ln the face of an unsuccessful football season the sports editors proved eminently fair and did not assume a carping attitude toward the team or its coach. On the con- trary, they were quick to defend the policy of de-emphasis of sports in general, and football in particular. Although naturally partial to N. Y. U., the discussions of college athletics, and the weekly football forecasts were interesting and well written. The editors were to be particularly commended for their articles advocating official sanction for the unofficial ice hockey team which has, at its own expense, borne the Violet standard against other college teams. The editorial policy of the News was more forceful and aggressive than it had been in the past. Starting with the rather Pollyanna-like projects of improving student-faculty relations, the editorials changed in form and character, and gained in concreteness as they lost their vague, generalized character. The News broke its long and uncomf fortable silence upon the question of com- pulsory Military Science for the first time in its history. ln a series of successive editorials the News firmly presented its reason for opposing compulsory Military Science, completely free of all emotional , pyrotechnics or violent assertions. A straw vote, conducted by the News on the Presidential, Gubernatorial and l Mayoralty elections, revealed a decidedly Lawrence Axelrodd socialistic trend in student opinion.

A series of editorials attacking the policy of the Board of Athletic Control in the case of Ely Kleinfeld, a member of the boxing team who had allegedly incurred a severe injury while engaged in a bout under the Violet colors, caused Professor Badger, Chairman of the Board, to prefer charges against the Managing Board of the News. The Student Senate voted to sustain these charges and to reorganize the News staff. During the period of reorganization a tri-weekly newspaper, The Heights Bulletin, edited by students of the University and Engineering Colleges, appeared on the uptown campus in the place of the daily paper, and continued as the official news organ until the formation of The Heights News.

Y. U. Daily News, made its final bow to the student body of the two colleges at University Heights. lt was succeeded on March 13 by a four-page tri-weekly of tabloid size and format, bearing the title of The Heights News. The abrupt entrance of this new organ upon the journalistic scene as a more or less permanent fixture invited comparison with its namesake and predecessor, the Daily News. Although projected on a much more modest scale and lacking the tradi- tion, as well as some part of the talent at the disposal ofthe all-university publication, the disparity between the two newspapers was not as great as might be supposed. It must be conceded that the editorials in the new paper do not approach those of the Daily News in assertiveness and vigorous presentation of ideas which had been characteristic of the discontinued publication. The editors have moved, in most instances, with prudence and circumspection, and have limited their articles in some measure to a series of non-controversial comments on Heights topics. The policy of the newspaper on the question of control of the Medley was hesitant and ill-dehned, but its essential opinion was characteristically conservative. It favored a Medley subsidized by the Student Council and consequently subject to any restric- tions and limitations the council might deem proper to impose. The remainder of the newspaper, however, has held its own with, and in some cases surpassed, its predecessor. There had alwa s been something sprawling and unwieldy about the Daily News, a lack ofunity and definite tone which was, perhaps, an inevitable result of the dualistic manner of publication and management. The Heights News, on the other hand, represents a closer approach to the ideal college newspaper, -an informal type of publication created to serve the needs of a small community. ln addition, many of the columns which had sprouted mushroom-wise over the pages of the Daily News have been carefully weeded out of the new publication. The "Violet Rays," which had never exhibited a particularly robust brand of humor when it drew its contributions from the entire university, has thrived amazingly on its restricted fare. Although much of the material submitted has been brusque and ...iz 203 5... ,wrt THE VIOLET ,ga l l Robert D. Bloom Harold B. Jacobson Managing Editor Sports Editor pointless, and though, at times, much of the humor has been scarcely recognizable as such, there have been moments in the life of the new publication when the "Violet Rays" have glittered with unaccustomed brightness. Particularly deserving of honor- able mention is an excellent parody of Thomas Gray's Elegy which, for the quality of its verse as well as the closeness with whichit parallels the original, merits the mythical title of the best contribution of the year. The "GadHy" has not suffered to any considerable extent by its transplantation from the University publication to its more modest successor. It attempts the same lofty idealism, the same high seriousness of purpose in its discussions of ethical, political, economic, and social questions of the day. It is, for some, the most attrac- tive feature of the new tri-weekly, surpassing the editorial column as a means toward goading the mind into activity. There has been a decided improvement in the character of the news items. By far the greater part of the columns of the Daily News had been occupied with petty notices and announcements. These have disappeared from the pages of the new publication and have been replaced by full-length articles on every occurrence which concerns Hei hts students. The result has been a transformation from a bulletin- board type otg news organ to a friendly, community newspaper. Thus, while the paper has lost much of its superficial glitter in the decrease in the number of its s ecial columns, and though it has suffered some loss of a gressive- ness in its editorialpcolumns, it has gained considerably by acquiring a delfnite tone in its manner of presentation and by creating a new feeling of warmth and informality in its news items. The Heights News of 1933 stands as a tribute to the talent and resourcefulness of the students at University Heights, who were able to create so well-balanced a newspaper on such short notice.

Occasionally, a short poem would be tucked away in an obscure corner of one of the issues. This year, the editors have effected a complete change in the format as well as in content. The Critical Review now appears in the form of a 24-page magazine pref dominantly critical but partially creative as well. It apparently has begun to evolve into a literary publication in which, event- T ually, creative writing will be accorded Bennett D Brown parity with criticism. Editor The students at the Heights were greatly surprised by the first issue which contained such innovations as an interview with Dean Bouton, a long poem-Helen and Helenus, a whimsical tale called Ilse Anne the Tiger-purporting to be a "fresh conclusion to Stockton's Short Story to please two little girls," short poems, among them "I X-lm Narcissus," in addition to the traditional book reviews. Of the purely creative writing in the hrst issue the palm should be awarded to Cleanse the Stuffed Bosom, "a macabre adventure in the subconscious, conceived in sombre overtones" by Philip Voss. His writing seemed to catch the currents of confusion, exultation, despair, ecstasy, gloom, and indefmable longing which swirl in the shadows of the Freudian subconscious. In the changing tempo of its prose, the tale follows the varying moods of the adventurer as he moves through an exotic other-world whose lush, exquisite furnishings and nebulous, unreal personages arise from the turmoil of unfulfilled desires lurking in the unknown depths of the human personality. Soliloquy on a Trinity of Selves, in the second issue, continued in the sensual tradition. Although its theme was somewhat confused and obscure, the poem was written with a warmth of feeling, and a stateliness of word and rhythm, which caused it to stand out among the other creative writings of the issue. The best critical work by a student was probably S. R. Shapiro's ambitious but extremely lucid exposition of Forsyte Saga. The essay was at once an analysis and ...Ki 205 5... Win THE VIOLET elif' Arthur B. Brower Solomon R. Shapiro Associate Editor Associate Editor an appreciation, but its chief merit lies in the clarity with which it traces the thread unifying the many books of the Safa for the benefit of those who have read these works at odd moments and in a confused order. It cannot be said that the Critical Review is, in its entirety, an over-popular publication at the Heights. There is, and has been in the past, an extreme stodginess and lack-lustre quality about the reviews which has aroused in the student body a feeling of apathy toward them. Many of the reviews have been written in an amateurish fashion, while others have gone to unjustified extremes in the attitude they assumed toward an author. The introduction of purely literary matter into the magazine has partially served to modify its dullness, and has, at the same time, provided a much-needed channel for creative writing. The interviews with University officials are not particularly in keeping with the character of the Critical Review, and they will undoubtedly be discontinued when the editors come to the realization that this field of writing has been made trite by other University publications. A higher standard of critical writing, a greater amount of original writing, and a more attractive format would prove to be large factors in gaining for the Critical Review a place of esteem among the students. THE BOARD Bennett D. Brown Editor Arthur B. Brower Solomon R. Shapiro Associate Editor Associate Editor at 205 5... WH, THE VIOLET CEM THE W QM' T Arthur B. Brower Paul C. Cole Literary Editor Manag1'ng Editor IT has been the hope of the editors that in reading through this book thus far you have remarked to yourselves on the many features wherein it differs from last year's Uiolct, and that in continuing to read the remaining pages you will more completely appreciate the qualities and flaws, too many we fear, herein embodied. Those responsible for this Uiolet do not say, with ostentatious modesty, that it is a totally unworthy performance. It is felt that in certain respects it far surpasses previous Heights year-books, though the grain has by no means been completely separated from the chaff . There have been several obvious changes since last year. The cover of this year's Uiolet is, erhaps, the most striking. Previously the book had been clothed in imitation leather, and, in some instances, in a covering heavily embossed with symbolic design. This year the editors abandoned make-believe and used sim le cloth, yet the result, though plain, is by no means humble. Those responsible for the change feel that the exterior of the book is beautiful in its simplicity, and though the conventional "theme" has been cast aside, this motif of simplicity and restraint has been carried throughout these pages. ln order to accom lish this end a great deal of presum tuous student art work has been discontinued? An attempt to create beautiful division pages has been made through the medium of fine typography rather than symbolistic drawing. Many group photographs have been eliminated, especially in the section devoted to activities, because it was felt that they were of little use as examples of photography and, because of their unwieldy size, were ty o raphically undesirable. Therefore, an unprecedented preponderance of individualpphotographs replaces them. In their campaign against immaturity and the "collegiate" attitude the editors have gone a step further in eliminating the usual "grinds" accompanying the indi- vidual pictures in the senior section. Those little evidences of familiarity were juvenile in conception and of questionable taste. Together with them the nick- name has gone into the rubbish heap. ..,f 207 5.. SA, THE VIOLET Cfiw ln a few respects the book follows the pattern of those Uiolets which preceded the 1932 book. Last year's transition stage placed full emphasis on the students, and, as a result, perspective was disregarded and many interesting features of college life were lost. The notable exception to this was the "Campus Life" section. But the faculty section proved less inter- esting than in previous years mainly because the average student is more interested in a history of each member of a department than in a history of the department itself. ln order to gratify the student's under- standable curiosity concerning his teachers, a condensed "pedigree" of each instructor has been included in tabulated form in the Faculty Section. The controversy over sequence of sections once more arose after -- last year's board had definitely "settled" Ray Strasdin the question. Should the Faculty precede photography Editor students or should the students come first? This problem can never be solved dog- matically. Its solution inevitably rests on the tastes and preferences of the editors. In deciding a question of this sort rationalization is ever given free reign, and there is no dearth of argument in support of either side. No reasons or excuses are offered for the sequence used in this ear's Uiolet. The editors merely felt that this arrange- ment was best and so they followed it. , Yet the board does not feel that this Uiolet has fallen back once more into its former ritualistic character. True, certain sections are catalogued, others are merely a collec- tion of picturesg but, taken as a whole, this book is not an illustrated catalogue. The editors this year are in entire sympathy with the aims of last year's board in giv- ing the students an account of the happen- ings at the Heights in readable form, and, at the same time, presenting judicious criti- cism. But with what frequency can a "Campus Life" section appear? How may monotony and repetition be avoided in yearly write-ups of the Faculty depart- ments? There are obvious difficulties. And if this year's 'Uiolet had followed in the ex- act footsteps of last year's we too would have been forming a mould. An attem t was made to present criticisms of the courses of instruction so that the student might be guided in making his choice. But where is one to find unbiased criticism among the student body? Here, again, obvious didiculties presented themselves to the editors. As a consequence certain desirable features were retained from the previous 'Uiolet and in certain other in- l . . rm stances reversions to conventional form Aaron P. GCWHHECF were made. The result is a 'Uiolet differ- Managing Literary Editor ent from all those of preceding years. .n , ...4 203 5... Wiki THE VIOLET CFR' Mr. Howell and Dr. Gasparitsch, our two faculty advisers, have, in their usual manner, given advice both wisely and . kindly. Their many other duties never hin- dered them in their desire and willingness to make this book an improvement over itS predecessors. Many students, too, have contributed generously their time and energy that this Uiolet might achieve some measure of success. Foremost among these has been Vincent Damiani, who was ever eager to share the heavy burden of the editors. Ray Strasdin, Photography Editor, deserves commendation for his share in producing this book. Aaron Ge- wanter has assumed many editorial duties and has, in this way, been of invaluable ViHCCU'l Dilmifmi assistance in obtaining and correcting copy. Associate Editor in Charge Of james Scott, in his capacity as Sports Edi- Pfmfmg and fngmvmg tor, has accomplished a noteworthy task in reviewing the Football and Basketball sea- sons-a feat that is seldom performed well. Ross Baer, associate Sports Editor, has not only assumed duties in his specific field but has also submitted copy for the Student Organization section. Fred Assadourian has continued faithfully in his tedious and thankless task as Secretary, spending long hours in research and typing. Leon Freed spent much time in assembling articles and revising copy. jules Schneider and Leon Aronson were responsible, in great measure, for the section on organizations. Nathan Kaplan spent many hours in helping to prepare the Faculty section. When illness forced Ray Strasdin to discontinue his duties as Photography Editor, Milton Kendall and Maurice Alexandre bore the burden imposed upon them by the emergency. Of the Engineers Mitchell Litvin, Roger Ley, Elliot Mock, .lack Delmonte, and Charles Klotz were outstanding in their efforts to assemble a Uiolet that would be represent- ative of both colleges at the Heights. And these men who are mentioned represent but a few of the many. A 'Uiolet should not be a one man book, a worthwhile 'Uiolet cannot be a one man book. The editors hope that this volume meets with the approval of the undergraduates at the Heights, for the 'Uiolet belongs to the students. And if our efforts are deserving of your plaudits, to the many who have received scant recognition must go the praise.

Even this reviewer, who set out in a very critical frame of mind, found himself greatly amused by the issues, after the complimentary copies had been pried from the grasping fingers of the advertising manager.

In regard to the Exchange, the Medley is exceedingly weak. We are well aware that the Exchange of a college comic is generally pretty bad, and that the Medley is no worse in this respect than are most of the breed. But surely, we could have some initiative shown on this count, instead of merely following suit. We might try to have at least a third of the jokes fall into a different category from the two we ...4 211 9...

Exchange editors should be impressed with the fact that some indecent stories are amusing, and that only those which are amusing are justified. . We think the Medleyman innovation a good one. The Medleyman, we freely grant it, does not rank with the New 'Yorkcr's Talk of the Town, upon which it is obviously patterned. But the feature has obtained a high degree of proficiency in the presentation of interesting bits of news, after a charming style. We reiterate, we approve of the Medleyman. To the poetasters, we like Lester David's verse, and Ben Radin's efforts have occasionally brought a smile to our withered lips. Sidney Freidberg's very free verse Cwe suppose a footnote is in orderj has, in the main, pleased us immensely. We think it novel and generally amusing, although in all frankness we must confess that it has occasionally called forth involuntary protests on our part. Yet we must not be misunderstood. We like Mr. Freidberg's verse. Being, for the moment, in a generous mood we take this opportunity freely to advise Horace Lapman to dis- continue his essays in this genre. This particular literary phase is not Mr. Lapman's forte, perhaps he himself realized this, for in the March issue the torch of "very free verse" is carried by Mr. Alexandre, who does fairly well. Arthur Brower's regular contribution has afforded us several good moments. Mr. Brower has his u s and downs. We heartily recommend "Unclean, Unclean" P and "Frosh." An e idemic of ossi columns in the Medley remains for us 'ust an e idemic of P g P J P gossip columns. Still, if these things are necessary, we must offer congratulations to our campus followers in the footsteps of the omnipresent Winchell. Messrs.

We feel called upon to drop a casual word about the Medlegfs venture into reform with its Commons expose. Mr. Weil writes well, and his point was well taken, but his efforts would have been better expended on an editorial for the ci-devant News. Reform is not the function of a comic magazine. Mention should also be given to Mr. Gorson's "A Bore and a Girl There Were" QMarchj, the first short story ever published by the Medley. The story was satisfac- tory as a story, but we cannot help thinking that when a publication is taking a step which will probably mean the establishment of a precedent-the story thus honored ought to be a bit more startling in quality and content than is this minor contribution from Mr. Gorson's facile pen. Asked for a definite opinion, we should say that of the six issues available at this reviewing, the best is the February Number. lt maintains a high standard of excellence throughout, in all the departments. Even the Exchange seems a bit better in this issue. And then that "Sigmund" cartoon. We still think it's perfectly swell. We believe the Medley staff has performed its task capably. We think the highest credit is due it. And since we have here shown our admiration for the work done we can take this opportunity incidentally to suggest that the staff might give a bit more attention to the typographical make-up of the magazine, that the mast-head might be kept a bit more constant, and that a weather-eye might be assigned to the occasional features. They incline, every so often, to be just so much water under the bridge. But these, after all, are mere details. They do not affect our belief that thc Medley deserves sincere commendation.

Primarily, it is a'technical publication of interest to the Engineers on the campus. Well-written student articles, and papers by prominent engineers are frequently featured. There are several permanent features suc as "Campus," "Laugh, Engineer, Laugh," and "Engineering Advance," that appear in each issue and are eagerly anticipated by its readers. Early in 19 o the civil engineers published a mimeographed weekly, entitled The Baseline, whicfi contained technical news of the engineering cam us. The other societies became interested, and a staff was organized to publish a tecinical magazine, now named The Quadrangle. lt is representative of the four major branches of engineering at the University: Civil, Mechanical, Electrical, and Chemical. Sup- port was lacking and the publication was suspended during part of 1931 until Dean Bliss and Professor Bryans promised to back an issue, if they could be assured of the support of all the professional engineering societies. The societies arranged a satis- factory plan, agreeing to include a subscription to the magazine in their dues. Mr. Murray Tauss, C.E., and Leon Douglas, A.E., were the first two editors. With promises of good support and widespread praise for the present magazine in the engineering college, the present editor, jack Delmonte, increased the format from six by nine to seven by ten at the beginning of the colle e year. The cover design was changed from old English to the resent original heading with its background of the Hall of Fame. Representatives ofp engineering societies in the evening engineering division were interviewed, and they too promised their sup ort to the magazine. Encoura ed by the excellent reception on the campus, the magazine has recipro- cated by pullrlishing exclusive engineering news that does not appear in any other publication. The engineering societies periodically contribute reports of their activ- ities. Such items build up a great personal interest in the magazine. Another ...4 214 5... Q-951, THE VIOLET Q50 feature introduced at the beginning of the year was the "Oil Can Society." This group is the Beta chapter, the Alpha chapter having been founded at the University of Colorado. lt is an organization of men who have made some outstanding bone- head remark in class. Surprisingly enough, that particular organization is growing rapidly. Now that The Quadrangle is a permanent institution on the campus, the present editor diverted his attention from winning the sup ort of all engineering groups to the building up of a magazine. As a result, the publication took its most ambitious step in still further increasing its format to a nine by twelve page. This makes it a publication of standard size. The step was not regretted, for the engineers received the magazine with still heartier plaudits. The first issue to appear in the large size came out on the campus early in March, 1933. Fortunate in having such well written and timely articles as: "Hydro-Electric Develo ments" by Professor Coonradt, "Extrusion Processes" by Fred Hamburger, "Worlcf?s Fair" by Elliot Mock, and "The Pier Improvements in North River" by Mr. F. Cleverdon, Vice-President of Spooner and Co., the issue was most interesting. At present, word has been received that Mr. Ridgway, chief enginner of The Board of Transportation, has promised to write in the next issue of the magazine. Articles such as these help the magazine tremendousl in gaining popularity. The magazine is endeavoring to join a group known as The Engineering College Maga- zine Association, an organization of the best technical ublications in the leading universities throughout the countryg and it seems that 7516 Quadrangle will be ad- mitted to membership in a short time. It is the policy of the publication to introduce its various features with a drawing, generally technical, depicting the main topic of the feature, while the cover always portrays some recent engineering endeavor. A frontispiece may now be found in each issue, and it has proved a wise move. The magazine was fortunate in obtaining the artist's conception of the completed Hoover Dam, procured from the govern- ment, and the huge tandem-compounded turbine of the Brooklyn Edison Co. With each successive year the number of engineering alumni, who are acquainted with the magazine, is increasing. lt is still a comparatively young publication, however, with the interest that the student body has shown, its potentialities are great. lt already has a fair alumni subscription. The personal contacts and the news from the alumni are particularly beneficial in providing the graduates with some active medium whereby they may continue their contacts, socially and otherwise, with the college that gave them their degree. The undergraduates take particular interest in what the graduates of other years are doing. A very entertaining column is prepared for each issue by the evening representative of the magazine, entitled: "Night Lights." The Quadrangle is the only agency that publishes their news, and they reciprocate correspondingly.

One was that it had an expert coach, the second that it had a wealth of fine material, and finally, that it was scheduled to meet some of the best teams east of the Mississippi. Coach W. D. Bryant, whose success in past years has been remarkable, called for try-outs early in October, and found that he had on hand eight veterans of last year, Augustus Tilove, james Keller, Edward Klein, Robert Tilove, Harold Siegal, Samuel Gennet, Harold Levin, and Howard Hausman. In addition there appeared four sophomores, two, Eugene H. Gordon and Sanford L. Solendar, who had debated on the freshman team, and the other two, Mortimer Grief and Jack Stern, who were anxious and willing to learn. Elections were held early in the year and Augustus Tilove was chosen captain. Milton Schaeffer was elected manager, with Eli Goldsmith and Monroe Kroll as assistants. Practice debates were held all through the first semester, and Coach Bryant began to divide his squad into a number of two and three men combinations. A schedule of over forty debates was arranged by the managers. Most of the debates were con- tested in the city against local and visiting teams, but Coach Bryant sent two teams out on trips to represent New York University in the North and West. ln the city the team met Columbia, Manhattan, C. C. N.Y., St. john's, Syracuse, Kansas State, Maine, Bates, Yale, Princeton, Florida, American, Wasliiiigtoli and Lee, Colgate, North Carolina, as well as many local Young Men's Christian and Hebrew Associa- tions, Debate Clubs and political organizations. Most of the contests were non- decision debates, but those which were judged resulted in New York victories, for an ...ir 217 5... "Hr THE VIOLET Jif' Augustus Tilove Captain The team also joined with Fordham average of eighty per cent. Some of the topics debated on were the Allied War Debts, Modern Advertising, and the Failure of Democracy. In Early March Coach Bryant chose Captain Tilove and Edward Klein to make the trip to Chicago. On the way they debated Buffalo, Syracuse, Canisius, Michigan, Northwestern, Pittsburgh, Uni- versity of Pennsylvania and others. The team received an even break on those de- bates judged, which is a very fine record for a road trip. A week later, Harold Siegal, Robert Tilove, and Milton Mandel of Washington Square College, traveled North to Maine and Vermont, meeting on the trip Brown, Harvard, Maine, Colby, Bates, Vermont, Middlebury, and others. The majority of their debates were non- decision affairs. and Manhattan in a three-cornered debate on Technocracy. Harold Siegal and Augustus Tilove represented New York Uni- versity. Distinguished honor was given to two of the teams, whose speeches are being printed in the Debaters' Annual for 193 debated Kansas State on the topic, "Resol 3. james Keller and Eugene H. Gordon ved: that the Federal Government regulate the sale and production of the major farm products." An audience decision was awarded New York upholding the nega- tive. Daniel Levy, Sanford L. Solendar and james Keller debated Colgate at the end of March on the topic, "Resolved: that Dictatorship is the only cure for the world's ills." New York won again, this time by a unanimous decision of the judges. The team is indeed fortunate that the prospects for next year are as bright as they were at the beginning of this. Al- though Captain Tilove and Daniel Levy are graduating, and Harold Siegal is leav- ing for Medical School, the sophomores have gained valuable practice and experi- ence, and new freshmen are expected to fill the ranks. We are looking forward to another year even more successful than this one has been. ' A l Milton Schaffer Manager -4 2 18 5... 'Eb THE VIOLET Q59 The Freshman Debating Team V jess Goldsmith Manager EW freshman teams receive the attention they merit. An excellent example of this is the freshman debating team. Little enough interest is evoked by the exploits of the Varsity team, and the freshman team is similarly buried among the heap of "unimportant minor sports," if it may be called a sport. Yet this lack of enthusiasm is undeserved, for freshman debating has shown itself worthy of support and mention as one of the activities on the campus that aid the student in under- standing national and international problems. The team also serves a supplementary purpose in enabling these students to practise the principles taught in the elementary classes in public speaking, and also to serve as an introduction to public oratory, an art difficult to achieve. All freshmen are encouraged to compete for the team, which this year was coached by Eli D. Goldsmith, the assistant manager of the Varsity team. Numerous debates were held during the year with high schools, preparatory schools, and several of the local colleges. Among the opponents of the ast college term were Brooklyn College, the Junior Varsity of City College, TownsendDHarris Hall Preparatory School, lVlount Vernon High School, Seth Low junior College of Columbia University, Columbia College, Fordham College and Fordham University, Dana College, Newark Prepara- tory School, and the Erasmus Hall High School. Various questions were chosen as topics of discussion, although all of these were on subjects of great public interest. These included the cancellation of the foreign war debts, the adoption of compulsory unemployment insurance, and the effects, beneficial or detrimental, of modern advertising. Both sides of the questions were debated. Decisions were rendered in varied methods, using the audience, one and three judges as means of determining the winners. All due praise should be given to the freshman manager, Jess Croldsmith, and the men who have composed the team: Alan Aronson, Herman Benzel, Louis Feld- man, Al Cweto, and Harold Czreene. ...4 219 Q... WR, THE VIOLET CEU Dramatics The Hall of Fame Players The Play's The Thing T the conclusion of last year's successful season, Professor Nyberg, director and faculty adviser of the Hall of Fame Players, decided to raise the standard of the group and make it self-sup orting. The first step was the consolidation of the organization with the Paint andy Powder Society. For several years this latter group, which has received a subsidy from the Student Council, had been producing a musical comedy each spring at a downtown theater. The division of talent and money did little to help either organization, the consolidation of the two, however, meant that in the future all the labor as well as financial aid would be unified. This move provedto be a complete success. The second important step that Professor Nyberg undertook was to obtain an expert professional scene designer and technician, and place him in charge of all technical production work. The man chosen for this position was Mr. Dean Farns- worth, under whose supervision students constructed sets which gave evidence of the finest technique in scene designing. The third important point in the reorganization program was to choose six plays, and to assign a definite date for the production of each. This was done, and printed copies of the program for the year were sent to all alumni members. The definite character ofthe program lent a desired air of reality. The program of six productions for the season of 1 32-1933 included Granite by Clemence Dane on Nov. 4 and 5, The Playls the Thing by Perene Moliiar on Nov. 30, Dec. 2 and 3, Gold by Anton Jensen on Marcli 1O and 11, Three Original One-Act Plays on Marcli 24 and 25, Three Original Qne Act Plays on April 19, 21 and 22, and Great Catherine by G. B. Shaw in May. Gold, by Anton Jensen, was obtained from the author by Professor Nyberg for exclusive presentation by The Hall of Fame Players in the Little Theater in Gould ---4 220 in WR, THE VIOLET Jig Hall. This presentation was its premiere, for it has never before been produced on any stage. The six one-act plays are the roducrs of undergraduates at University Heights. They are chosen by means of an elimination contest to which any Heights student is eligible. By this means any latent talent on the campus is expected to be encouraged. This innovation was introduced last ear and proved so popular that the organization decided to make it a regular part of, its program. These plays are presented under the supervision of Professor Nyberg. Three of the six have been selected, they are: The Wishing Stone by Jack Zydney, Robert E. Lee by Samuel Jackson, and Involu- tion by Nlelvin King and Sidney Freidberg. Each of these is being directed by a student. The actors are, of course, students-all of which makes dramatics a genuine student activity. The innovation of an office for the Hall of Fame Players has proved to be an invaluable asset. lt is located in Gould Hall directly behind the Little Theater and is spacious enough to be used as dressing room and i'Green Room" as well as general office. An efficient filing system has been instituted, by which all of the available material on the campus is listed and catalogued. Among those whose work has been outstanding during the past year in dramatics are Ralph Zink, an actor of professional ability, Bertram Swaybill whose excellent performances in The Plays the Thing and Gold deserve special mention, Melvin King for his fine character interpretations as well as his convincing portrayal in The Last Mile, Allan Nemrow for consistently fine work in dramatics for three years, as well as Irvin Getschal and Marvin Putnoi. The production staff deserves com- rlgendation for its work under the leadership of Bernard Schaffer and H. Norman uznitz. Granite ...Q 221 Q... 'fib THE VIOLET diff' The Glee Club ECAUSE the membership of the Glee Club was particularly affected by the graduation of the Class of ' 2, the organization was, for a large part, this year composed of new and untraine voices-a situation which seemed at the opening of the season to present a tremendous handicap. Though Yale had two hundred and twenty, and N. Y. U. but forty voices from which to select the twenty-eight representative singers of each college that com eted in the Nletropolitan Area Inter- Collegiate contest, it was Professor Cwreenfieltlqs group which on Saturday, March 18th, won the Metropolitan Cham ionshi --an especially commendable accomplish- ment, considering the initial obstacle which was more than overcome. Of-all the annual events on the school calendar which are anticipated and appre- ciated by both the students and faculty of the several colleges of the University, the Glee Club's traditional Town Hall concert has become a leading favorite. This year, for the first time in the Club's history, the concert was given prior to the Christ- mas holidays fon the evening of December 17Cl1D, so that the hrst portion of the program appropriately included both festive and religious songs, among them a Fantasia on Christmas Carols by R. Vaughan Williaiaas, and Christians, Harkl, a noel of the Bressan Waits which was harmonized by Francisque Darcieux. The second half of the splendid program bore obvious witness-by the high de- gree of perfection attained on avowedly difficult numbers-to the intensive drill and practice of both Professor Greenfield and his virtuosos. After the intermission one of last ycar's favorites, the Dance of the Gnomes, was included in the resuming McDowell suite. Three exquisitely sung traditional spirituals, arranged by Albert Stoessel, succeeded these, after which the choir, with a masterful interpretation of Bissell's Torclzbearers fGhost Danceb, completely won the whole-hearted admiration of the audience. lt was a work of somewhat the same character as Elgar's The Phantom Host, which was the club's choice song last year when the Violet partici- pated in the National lnter-Collegiate Contest held in St. Louis. A selection from --4 222 yu- '98, THE VIOLET Ji' Wagner's Parsifal, and the Coronation Scene from Moussorgsky's "Boris Cvodounov" succeeded this, with the truly-appreciated concert being brought to a close by the ever- loved Palisades. Though attendance that evening was curtailed by the blizzard weather, the concert was musically an indis utable success. The next important event to be enteredg on the Club's record was the Metro- politan Contest with Yale and Rutgers which was broadcast from Wanamaker's Auditorium over station WINS. This informal afternoon contest, for which Francis Xavier Buebendorf, Jr. was our student leader-and in which there were no choice songs, the required numbers for the three clubs being Sibelius' The Broken Melody, Ave Maria, by Arcadelt, and Now Sleeps the Crimson Petal, by Andrew-was fol- lowed in the evening by the Seventeenth Annual Inter-Collegiate Cvlee Club Concert which was this year held in Town Hall. This concert was given under the sponsor- ship of the Metropolitan Inter-Collegiate Cvlee Club Association, of which Mr. Reinald Werreiiratli, eminent concert baritone, former glee club member, and gradu- ate of N. Y. U., is president. At this time the winner of the afternoon's contest- at which the judges had been unaware of the identity of the competing clubs--was announced, and the silver cup which was last year won by Yale was given over to our safe-keeping as a token of victory. To a few of the members present it was remi- niscent of our winning of the National Inter-Collegiate Championship of 1931, to defend which title the club journeyed to St. Louis last year, after a series of money- raising engagements which included, among others, a week's appearance of four per- formances daily at Roxy's Theatre. One of the high spots of this year's activities will be the sending of eight of our boys to represent N. Y. U. at the World's Fair in Chicago. This is in keeping with arrangements of the International Student Musical Council for a Song Festival to be held in that city on August 7th, 8th, and 9th. Our two quartettes will be selected upon a competitive basis among the club's own members. Of American colleges, only those which are member clubs of the I. M. C. in good standing may participate in the Chicago festival. Professor Cvreenheld and his singers have given us an outstandingly successful year, which has even more firmly established our reputation as having one of the leading musical organizations in the country, and this is a feat for which Professor Greenfield deserves the highest appreciation in our power to express. l Professor Greenfield john Snyder, lr.

'fin THE VIOLET Jig The Heights String Orchestra --rl Quai- - "iK,.r....-H' "'- ' HE HEIGHTS LITTLE SYMPHONY, 'which was started four years ago by its present director, Mr. Maurel Hunkins, was changed this year from a symphony to a string orchestra. This development was the result of experiments toward the close of last year's nine-concert season, at which time the resentation of HandeI's Concerto Grosso in B minor was so well received by the studnents that it was decided to have the orchestra permanently without the woodwind and brass sections. Included in the repertoire of the Little Symphony were such works as Beethoven's Egmont Overture, Bizet's L'fIrlessienne Suite, Schubert's Unfinished Symphony, Weber's Oberon Overture, and Rimsky-Korsakoff's Schelzerezade-truly ambitious undertakings for an organization of twenty-three men, but executed with a genuine skill and depth of interpretation which was warmly appreciated. But this year the remaining String Ensemble became interested in works of a different nature, such as Corelli's Concerto Grosso for two violins and 'cello, the 'cello part being played by Mr. Sterling Hunkins, brother of the director. The orchestra has had several offers for outside concerts, but its members persist in their original intentions of remaining a non-commercialized group, of studying and play- ing the works of the Masters for their own cultural and musical advancement, and of presenting to the students as a whole music of the finest kind. The Little Symphony was fortunate last year in being able to present soloists eminent in today's musical world. They included joseph Cvingold, violin soloist with wide professional experience, the two Drane sisters, Mary and Virginia, who are well known because of their popularizing the violin concerto for two violins, Fred- erick Wilkiiis, friend of Mr. Maurel Hunkins, and professional flutist, who played Chaminade's beautiful Concertina for Flute with symphonic accompaniment, Sterling Hunkins, 'cellistg and Mrs. Maurel Hunkins, pianist, whose abilities have become well known to the Heights audience. This year the Drane sisters again played in a ...ai 224 5-... 'Rv THE VICLET Jig chapel concert, presenting, with the string ensemble, the brilliantly performed and wel -received Vivaldi Double Concerto. For the first time in its history the orchestra this year presented two New York University undergraduate students as soloists. They were jordan Smith, the present concert master, and Carlos de Zafra, Jr., a flautist and member of last year's sym- phony. The Bach concerto which they played was arranged for two flutes and violin --for which Frederick Wilkins also played-with ensemble accompaniment. It is considered unusual for an audience not musically trained to really appreciate Bach's works, but the surprising success of this concert, and the truly spontaneous applause Es profof that Mr. Hunkins' innovations and the fine interpretation of the players have orn ruit. On November 23, for the first time in its four years, this musical group Cplayed before a Senior class. This was made possible because the Seniors now hol their weekly chapel with the juniors, and not in Nichols Auditorium as formerly. Of the original members of the organization jordan Smith, Frank Buebendorf, and Harold Lansing graduate with the class of '33. Jordan Smith, retiring concertmaster, has done exce tionally fine work during his four years with Mr. Hunkins, and it has been his excellent playing which has had a large part in bringing the group from non-existence to an organization which is recognized by all as one of the very finest on the campus. In one of the last concerts of this year the ensemble played Smith's own arrangement of Debussy's The Maid With the Flaken Hair. X Credit for the excellence of the programs and their splendid rendition belongs entirely to Mr. Maurel Hunkins. The reputation and affection which this group has earned on the cam us should be a permanent gratilication to him.

WR, THE VIOLET CFR' The Band HE NEW YORK UNIVERSITY BAND-, which has become recognized as one of the finest college organizations of its kind in the East, was this year the best and largest it has ever been. Last fall's special marching and letter manouvres with a marching force of eighty menw-directed by Williarax T. Zaldo, Jr., graduate manager-were practiced in semi- darkness on the held west of the gymnasium. Or, if the weather made it necessary after the rehearsals, the rather limited area of the gym floor was turned into a tempo- rary parade ground. The surprise stunt of this year, notably at the Fordham game, was a confetti trick, which, when the band marched off to make way for the teams during the third quarter, left Eordham's nick-name multicolored upon the stadium held. Though usually the band has had a few concert appearances after the football games, and sometimes a vaudeville engagement at a Keith's theatre, their season this year ended with the Carnegie Tech game of November 24th, depression measures having necessitated doing away with all but the subsidy of the Athletic Association. The band is the only all-university musical organization, though nearly seventy- hve per cent of its members come from the downtown schools, particularly from the Musical Education department. The student director, who is always a member of the Mtnsic department of the School of Education, was Benjamin Grasso, a senior this year. The drum major for the '32-'33 season was Vincent O'Connor, and the manager was Edward Och-both Heights students. This year there were also three Assistant Nlanagers: Earl Schmitz Can uptown stu- dent who is to be manager next seasonj, Benjamin Tabochnik, and Harry Joseph, the latter two both downtown men. ...4 226 ui... fflfkfeffcs - .

F 1 WR, THE VIOLET ,Evo The Football Team joseph LaMark Howcagcdclffanii Captain DN the one hundredth anniversary of its founding, New York University has inaugurated a new epoch in its athletic history. The tenets of King Football have been abandoned in favor of a policy of de-emphasis. Closely following the resignation of Coach Meehan at the close of the 1931 season, the Board of Athletic Control outlined a program providing for a new alumnus football coach, to wear the academic title of assistant professor and to serve as director of physical education -his prime interest being the welfare of the student body. No longer was the num- ber of games won to be regarded as the sole criterion of success, and any practises which tended toward overemphasis were to be discontinued. In naming Howard G. Cann as Director of Physical Education and football coach, the Board of Athletic Control chose the University's greatest athlete-out- standing in football, basketball, baseball, and track in his undergraduate days, an assistant football coach in 1922 and 1923 and since that time successful mentor of Donald Fegley Harry Temple Manager Captaingelect ...Q 229 i... 'ish THE VIOLET 45" Tanguay the University's basketball teams. Approval of the Board's selection was unanimous. Clearly he combined the qualities of outstanding player and coach. The schedule for the 1932 season, however, was perhaps bristling with more formidable obstacles than a Violet team had ever before faced. lt was problematical whether due allowances would be made for a new coach, installing a new system and working under the precepts of a new policy. Coach Cann, in shouldering the titanic burden which confronted him, chose first of all to discard the military huddle, the practise of players sprinting on and off the field, and other flourishes of the Meehan regime. Strict attention was to be paid only to plain, unvarnished football, played in a businesslike manner without any unnecessary extra efforts. ln the words of Howard Cann, "Our work begins when we hit the line of scrimmage. Too much time that could be better utilized is spent on showmanshipf' He had acquired a distinct liking for the Harvard system the previous year, while acting as referee during the Harvard-Texas game. Upon hearing that he had been selected head coach to 'succeed Meehan, Cann left for Cambridge to discuss with Coach Casey the features of the system which he desired to install and emulate at New York University. When Chick Meehan transferred his coaching par- aphernalia to Manhattan, he left behind him a wealth of fine ball carriers and everyone of them was on Abee R. McNamara hand at the season's opening-including Captain joe LaMark, Bob McNamara, jack McDonald, Harry Temple, Jim Tanguay, Bill I-Xbee, and Nat Grossman. ln addition to these seven, all experienced, a brilliant triple threat sophomore, jack White, broke into the picture at Farmingdale with his accurate passing, long punts, and ability in carrying the ball. Coach Cannls major concern was clearly to construct a line which had been depleted by the graduation of Chalmers, Firsten- berg, Concannon, Murphy and Arenstein. At Farming- dale Val Connolly displayed so much improvement that the center position promised to be well taken care of. joe Hugret, a veteran performer at end, was capably supported by Maynard White and Bill McNamara, a converted back. Marchi and Kohler alleviated Cann's worries at the guard posts,while at tackle he had probably ...4 230 xi...

Apparently the team that completed the twelve days of pre-season training at Farmingdale was fully capable of coping with the arduous schedule that confronted it. T When Hobart appeared at Ohio Field to provide the opposition for the season's debut, a carefree, happy crowd of 1o,ooo turned out to witness a mighty Violet eleven annihilate an obviously weaker opponent. The score of 3 3 to o was a distinct disappointment to the many who had hoped to see a repetition of the 65 to o victory of last year or possibly a sample of the point gathering ability shown by the Violet in previous years when it defeated I l x nd De Benedictus it was forgotten that the football, whereas rolling up a mountainous score indi- cates a twisted sense of proportion, of sportsmanship, and fair play. joe LaMark accounted for two of the scores with Allegheny 81 to o, Alfred White 75 to o and Vermont 79 to o in opening games. The first quarter opened in typical fashion-Violet backs, displaying only a limited repertory of forma- tions, crossed the Hobart goal line twice. After that, although N. Y. U. was in complete control, it could do no better in any period than gather a single touchdown. Altogether hve tallies were made, a moral victory for Hobart-accustomed to less kindly treatment. The inability, or refusal, of the Violet team to make a complete runaway affair of the game was greeted with no little pessimism by the student body. Somehow, new system aimed at sane Jack White, jack McDonald and Bill Abee each con- tributing one tally. The newcomers in the line, Connolly, Kohler, and Maynard White, all turned in notable per- formances. Perhaps the most noticeable feature of the game was the absence of the dash and snap ofthe military huddle and the cannon that reverberated each time the Violet scored. Under Meehan they had seemingly become institutions at N. Y. U. On the following Saturday, the Violet lost its Rutgers inferiority complex.

U. triumphs to Rutgers' fourteen, one game having resulted in a tie. The exhibition, however, was not pleasing to many, especially during a sluggish first period. Against the scrappy Scarlet eleven Coach Cann's men seemed a disin- terested, moody aggregation with a decided lack of scoring punch. Each touch- down Was hard earned, the boys from the Raritan fighting every inch of the way and twice halting N. Y. U. inside the five yard line. There was too much drive in the Violet power plays to be consistently denied, however, and Bob McNamara tallied the first touchdown on a short end run behind a wall of four interferers. joe l.aMarlc knifed through the Rutgers line on a short plunge for the second score immediately after tossing a long pass to lVicNamara. Jack lVlcDonald added the third touchdown in the closing minutes of the game on a short line buck. Any doubt that existed concerning the potentialities of the team was apparently dispelled when six touchdowns were scored against a highly rated Georgetown eleven, which in the meantime was held scoreless. Plunging through the line, skirting the ends and projecting long passes, the Violets displayed a powerful offensive that tore the Georgetown line to shreds and served notice that they were still a force to be reckoned with on the gridiron. Howard Cann's rejuvenated squad pushed over a touchdown in the first ten minutes of play, added another before the period was over and then continued with a smooth running attack to cheer the Violet adherents who composed the greater part of 3o,ooo spectators. Two tallies were made in the second period and two more in the last quarter, Georgetown Kohler being at its best defensively in the third period. ...g 232 5... WR, THE VIOLET J-iw Bob McNamara was the key man in the drive for the first two touchdowns. A blocked kick was converted into the third score with Harry Temple going over after two plays at the outset of the second period, and another ground' gaining offensive that covered sixty-five yards brought jim Tanguay over. It was McNamara's brilliant play that kept the attack functioning when Georgetown staged its valiant fight in the third quarter. On the opening kick-off in the last quarter Temple raced sixty-four yards after a Georgetown end had touched the ball and placed it on the ground but did not fall on it. The referee did not blow his whistle and Temple, picking up the ball, dashed down the held while Georgetown was taken by surprise. Following an intercepted pass by McNamara, Jack McDonald carried the ball over for the final scoring. M. Wllite Hugret, Kohler, Marchi and ltzkowitz were outstanding in the line, while the all round performance of Bob lVlcNamara and the interference of Bill 1'-Xbee were reminiscent of the play of Ken Strong and Ed Hill. Colgate's powerful Red Raiders buried the football hopes of the Violet a week later under a 14 to 0 score before 35,000 people. Using all the tricks of the highly intricate Wariier system, the Nlatoon eleven made proper amends for their defeat of the previous year by playing Howard Cann's charges completely off their feet, scoring once in each of the first two periods and appearing content to rest on their laurels thereafter. Both forward and lateral passes, spinners and double reverses were used by the elusive Colgate backs to advance almost at will during the first two periods. N. Y. U. Meets the Ram l ...Q 233 E... WR, THE VIOLET Jfif' lt was not until late in the fourth quarter that the Violet succeeded in making a first down against the defense presented by the Maroon forwards, the credit for that one going to jerry Friedman who substituted for Bob McNamara. A pass from Jim Tanguay to Leon Smelstor resulted in another ' first down shortly afterward. Bob McNamara's kicking was up to its usual standard and coupled with Harry Temple's deadly tackling did much to prevent further Colgate scoring. A powerful Purdue team, co-champions of the Big Ten in 1931, administered another football lesson to a group of valiant Violets in amassing 34 points to 9 for Howard Cann's charges. lt was the worst trouncing received by the Violet since the 40 to o victory of Columbia in 1924. While Bob McNamara ascended to the heights of great- ness in his efforts to ward off the relentless Hoosier attack, the Purdue team presented a beautiful exhibition of the fundamentals of football, blocking that functioned with regularity, tackling that was anything but gentle, and a backfleld that tore over the turf relentlessly. - Vavra After a scoreless first period, in which the teams battled on even terms, Purdue unleashed the fury of its running attack. The speed and power of a brilliant ground offensive resulted in three touchdowns during the second period. Within two min- utes after Purdue's first score, however, a beautifully executed pass from Bob McNam- ara .to jack McDonald sent Violet hopes soaring to the skies. Behind the quick forming interference led by Pete Zaremba, McDonald whirled, dodged and zigzagged fifty yards to a touchdown. The first player in years to wear the jinx-defying number H13H.2lSO kicked the extra point. The tie was short lived, however, and N. Y. U. hopes were buried under an avalanche in which Purvis, Horstmann and Moss- prominently mentioned as All-American candidates- were outstanding ground gainers for Purdue. But there was never an indication of down- heartedness on the part of Cann's men. Purdue had to work hard -for every point it scored, its forward wall being penetrated time and again by the surging defensive play of Itzkowitz,Zaremba, Kohler, Marchi, and Temple, and up until the final minutes of play the Violets were a scoring threat. Two long forward passes from the unerring arm of Bob McNamara to jack McDonald provided the margin of victory over Georgia. The Southern Itzkowitz ...4 234 1...

Hugret A thrilling climax to the game came late in the fourth period when Georgia had the ball on first down at the Violet's three yard line. With only a minute left to play, N. Y. U. fought madly to prevent a Georgia touchdown that would have meant either tie or defeat. So desperately and hard fighting was the scramble that the ball bounced out of the hand of the Georgia back as he tried to plunge through the Violet line. Bob McNamara pounced on it and the Violet had the ball on its one foot line. Amid the frenzied roar of the crowd, the illustrious McNamara kicked the ball sixty-five yards to save the day for N. Y. U. , In addition to the brilliant performances of McNamara and McDonald, the play of Connolly, Itzkowitz and Kohler was excellent throughout the game. The triumph was rather costly, however, for I-lugret, who excelled early in the game at breaking up nearly every play that came around his end, went out of the contest with a badly injured leg that was to keep him out of action for the remainder of the season. A crowd of 40,000 was on hand a week later to see a fighting Violet team lose to its Bronx rivals 7 to 0. With several minutes of play remaining, some enthusiastic Fordham rooters, thinking the final whistle had blown, rushed onto the field and up- rooted both goal posts, leaving the teams battling on a gridiron without any uprights.

The score was a just criterion of the compara- tive strength of the two elevens. Fordham deserved to win, but in defeat N. Y. U. was as great as it ever was in victory. Displaying at times spurts that forced the Ram to play its best game, the Violet was always a threat. Even when there was only a few minutes to play, and both goal posts had been demolished, Cann's men were surging towards the Maroon goal line in a desperate effort to score, but Fordham's ability to tighten at crucial moments proved too much for the Violet. After a scoreless first period that found both teams fighting on even terms, Fordham unleashed an aerial attack that resulted in the only score of the encounter. The tight battle continued, thereafter, Fordham having the slight edge. Twice the mighty Ram took the ball inside the Violet's ten yard line and threatened to score, but the brilliant playing and fighting spirit of the defenders furnished an impregnable line. The game featured a superb punting duel between Ed Danowski and Bob McNamara. The Fordham ace, aided by a strong line, surprised the Violet several times during the course of the game with his short quick kicks while Bob McNamara was called upon countless times to save the day for N. Y. U. Temple On Thanksgiving day the gridiron season ended as the Violet eleven triumphed over Carnegie Tech 13 to 6. With the team trailing 6 to o going into the final period, the Violet rooters among the holiday crowd of 18,000 were resigned to defeat when suddenly the N. Y. U. offense which had been impotent for the first three periods began to gather momentum. A driving attack featured by the outstanding work of Bob McNamara and Harry Temple culminated in a forty yard pass from jim Tanguay to Maynard White for the first touch- down. The prospect of a tie game loomed when McNamara's attempted placement was blocked. It was not until late in the period that the deadlock was broken by another surprise pass from Tanguay to McNamara. This time the placement kick was perfect. ln addition to the performances of Harry Temple and Bob McNamara, the line play of Maynard White, ltzkowitz and Zaremba was outstanding. The triumph was the sixth that the Violet has gained over the Tartans in the seven games they have played. It also enabled Captain joe l.aMark, Bob and Bill McNamara, Ernie Vavra, jack MacDonald and jim Tanguay to finish their football careers with a victory.

Notwithstanding the success of Howard Cann's Hrst football team comparable with that of Meehan- coached elevens, there have been many derogatory criticisms aimed at the policy of ,de-emphasis as well as at Coach Cann by an exacting and uncompromising student body, as well as the Metropolitan press. This season's defeats have been traced to de-emphasis which has allegedly had an adverse effect on gate receipts and the public enthusiasm March, for New York University football. Obviously, the critics have overlooked the fact that of the three games lost to Colgate, Purdue and Fordham, the first two teams have been undefeated and are undoubtedly two of the countryis strongest elevens, while Fordham, in vanquishing St. Mary's and Oregon State, also proved its right to a high national ranking. To the unbiased observer, the first year's efforts of Coach Cann and his assistants have been highly commendable. It was a representative team that negotiated the most trying array of games ever to be played by a New York University team-as representative in power and good sportsmanship as any eleven that has carried the Violet banner in the past.

Coach Howard Cann's varsity basketball team emerged the victors in every home game during the 1932-33 campaign. Despite four defeats, their record of eleven victories testifies to a successful season. The creditable performance of the team is further evidenced by a moment's reflection on the obstacles which had to be sur- mounted. During the period in which the close of the football season overlapped the opening of basketball practice, Coach Cann was forced to devote his time to the grid squad, delaying active preparation for the opening court contest. Injuries and ineligibilities resulted in the loss of several of the mainstays of last year's team. "Sugar" Hugret, veteran center, who was out during the greater part of the football season with a knee injury, was also forced to remain on the sidelines during the basketball season. In- juries likewise prevented Sam Sternhill and Maynard White from seeing action on the Violet quintet. joe Lefft, understudy for the pivot position, and Irwin Klein, center of last year's freshman ' team, were ineligible be- cause of scholastic difii- culties. The regulars who remained from last year's ' squad to form a nucleus for the team of 133 were Captain Sam Potter, Hagan Anderson, Eddie Linz, Harold Halton, t Eddie Lancaster, Eldon Y j Dungey, and Dave San- ders.

The rivals from Nlorning- side Heights had been established as the pre-game favorites by virtue of their decisive victories in two previous games. The outstanding factor in the Violet's conclusive victory was its team play-smooth passing and cooperation rather than individual brilliance. Breaking away with a Hurry of successful long shots in the first half, the team continued its scoring by accurate passing and shooting, and held a substantial lead for the remainder of the game. Hagan Anderson with 13 points to his credit was capably supported by the two men appearing in a starting lineup for the first time, Phil Rosen and Chink Halton, and the veterans Potter, Lancaster and Linz. just twenty-four hours later, the team turned in its second victory by vanquish- ing Toronto 39-zo. QThis was the first intercollegiate basketball game to be played at the Heights since the old Violet gymnasium was demolished in IQZ6 to make room for the erection of the Nichols Chemistry Building, since that time the Hall of Fame team had been forced to use the 10211Cl Regiment Armory as its home court.j After a brief moment in the early part of the game when the Canadians held a short-lived lead, N. Y. U. thoroughly outclassed the visitors and held a decided point advantage throughout the game. Hagan Anderson again annexed scoring honors, while Sam Potter was outstanding on the defense. Another fast, stirring game at the Heights gym before izoo enthusiastic spec- tators resulted in a decisive 44 to 16 triumph over the Boston University Bulldogs. The attack, centering about Potter, Rosen and Halton, was fast moving and well coordinated, and the defense proved so effective that the boys from Boston were seldom permitted to get into position for a set shot. .4 239 rm "YV THE VIOLET 05" The Violet's record re- mained unblemished after an invasion of the Heights gym- nasium by a fast St. Francis College team. N, Y. U. left the floor at half time with a 14 to 8 lead. A determined rally by the Franciscans, how- ever, in the battle that fol- lowed served to erase this margin. The score of 24 to 22 is indicative of the even strength of the teams. The fifth consecutive victory was recorded over Georgetown 31-28 before a c a p a c i t y crowdof2,ooo in the gym. Georgetown was in front at the half, and the score was deadlocked on five occasions during this hard fought contest. With the resumption of play in the second half, N. Y.

In another nerve tingling contest on the home court, Coach Cann's charges made a determined comeback to win over Temple 33-31. The close guarding of both teams resulted in an unusual number of fouls being called-each side converting thirteen of the free tries. Hagan Anderson with eleven points was the out- standing scorer.

Another setback was received at the hands of a strong St. john 's team.

In the next game, the Violet had to turn back a spirited closing drive by Manhattan to gain its Potter hrst victory over the Jaspers since 1930. A 21-16 N. Y. U. margin at half time was nullified by Manhattan and an advantage of several points gained by the Green team in the middle of the last quarter. Eddie Linz and Hagan Anderson were princi- pally responsible for regaining the lead and holding it to the end in a thrilling finish. The twenty-first renewal of the basketball rivalry with Rutgers resulted in another Violet triumph, 34 to 23. Although the boys from the Raritan waged a hard fight through- out, the outcome was never in doubt. A cool, tricky campaign against Fordham, a few days later, resulted in the First victory over the Ram quintet since 1930, and, incidentallly, one of the most decisive in the ten year old series.

The tall, rangy Skibos were off to a fast start and rolled up a 10 to 2 advantage before Coach Cann's charges were able to coordinate their efforts. Once the Violet attack began to click, however, the Tartan lead melted away and the margin of victory for N. Y. U. was provided by the brilliant play of Lancaster and Linz. The difference between a good and a truly great team was quite evident in the finale with C. C. N. Y. The University Heights aggrega- tion was completely outclassed by the speed and aggressiveness of the Lavender and the final whistle sounded a 38 to 23 defeat. With capable replacements from a highly successful freshman team the prospects for Coach Cann's 1933-34 court season seem to be quite promising, despite the loss by graduation of Captain Sam Potter, Eddie Linz, and Dave Sanders.

By winning 12 contests, losing 4 and tying one, the Violet diamond emissaries impressed the East with their athletic capabilities. Although the technique and quality of play was often below par, Captain Bob McNamara and his teammates usually managed to inject enough good baseball into competition to place them in prominence. Inclemcnr weather proved the greatest barrier to preliminary outdoor practice. The weather man had called the third strike on Coach McCarthy's attempts to give his baseball proteges adequate training during the first few weeks. However, by supervising a s uad replete with seasoned veterans who had batted their way through a difficult schedule the year before, the Violet mentor had little basis for complaint. Leading the array of lettermen was Captain Bob McNamara, who had reached the hurling zenith the year before when he repelled a strong Holy Cross outfit with a single hit. Lefty S mancyk, Wally Signer, and Don Shearer all returned to afford McCarthy a powerlfil group of moundsmen. When Coach McCar- thy's henchmen attem ted to repel Andy Coakf::y's warriors from Columbia in their first tilt, they crossed bats with a vet- eran Blue and White troupe that had already gained two victories in three starts. Staging a dramatic last inning stand, the Violet succeeded in tying the game into a knot by capitalizing on a walk, an error, and Smel- stor's timely single to even the score at one all.

McNamara allowed the Columbians only two safeties during the entire game. . Outclouting the Sluggers from Manhattan College, the Violet downed a stubborn jasper nine by a 5 to 3 margin when Ernie Vavra hurled his first intercollegiate tilt to the discouragement of the Greenmen. Coming up for their last try in the ninth, the Manhattan maulers made a desperate attempt to turn the tables on the Hall of Famers, but to no avail. Those Wildcats from Villanova ran rampant against N. Y. U. in the latter's third contest and presented the McCarthymen with their first defeat when the Violet infield flew wide open in the fourth inning and allowed three of the visitors to cross the plate on a series of misplays. Five errors by the home team accounted for the initial setback. Rutgers came to town with intentions of painting Ohio Field Scarlet, but the lads from New Brunswick mixed their colors and the annual baseball fracas took on a distinct Violet hue when N. Y. U. sent the invaders home with a 10 to 6 trouncing. Georgetown and Temple provided the Violet with a heavy week-end, but both teams returned to their campuses with much respect for New York baseball tactics. The Owls from Pennsylvania were repulsed by an . 8 to 3 spanking and the Hoyas were set back 8 to 7. Ca tain Bob McNamara garnered seven , hits out ofp twelve visits to the plate. Two of the clouts were hard slashes for home runs, one being chalked up in each game. The Violet troupe then made a one-day stand at Newtonville, Mass. where they dropped their second game to Boston College after having amass- ed a five-run lead in this first tilt on foreign ter- ritory.

Jack MacDonald, who smashed a circuit drive against Boston College, slaughtered the horsehide in the Holy Cross game to make the conquest secure with three safeties. By tying the tally in the ninth and for ing ahead with a one-run lead in the tenth, the Army cadets sent the Violet nine baclg to Gotham with a 5 to 4 defeat that was replete with action and surprise. However, by virtue of a triple, a duo of singles and an error, the Army managed to tie the count in the ninth inning. A double and an error in the tenth gave the U. S. M. A. a sensational and deserved victory. Those engineers from Stevens Tech crossed their wires and were short-circuited by a 6 to 1 trouncing when they appeared on the Ohio Field diamond to contest a ball game with the Violet. MacDonald and Bonelli both smashed home runs. Washington and I.ee's outfit travelled north only to be presented with a 5 to 1 defeat through the efforts of light-haired and heavy-armed Ernie Vavra, who ob- tained his fourth victory in five starts for Coach McCarthy and his cohorts. The southern Generals were taught several lessons in baseball tactics when the Violet moundsman allowed them eight scattered hits. Ken Auer came to the Violet's camping grounds with a strong reputation and a powerful starboard wing-and he left the held after the annual game with N. Y. U. with an even greater reputation but a slightly less dexterous arm. Mauling the McCarthymen to the tune of 10 to 2, the Rams conclusively displayed their superior- ity in no uncertain terms. Bob McNamara did the twirling for the Violet, strikin out eight Maroon stick-wielders while Auer only finned four. A capac- ity crowd of 6,000 witnessed the twenty-third meet- ing of the two teams, the series having started in 1896.

Allowing only four hits while their teammates crossed the home plate nine times, Signer and Shearer did stellar mound duty in repelling the New York Athletic Club by a 9 to 6 count at Travers Island. The Rose Hillmen of Fordham, feeling secure in their easy defeat of the Violet earlier in the season, played host to the McCarthymen at Fordham Field when the two teams met in the last scheduled game of the year. Ken Auer remained on the bench for the tilt, and the Ohio Field cavorters surprised the baseball world and slipped through to a 7 to 5 victory to end Fordham's string of eleven consecutive victories.

Cliampions, donned their long spikes and began arduous training for the goal of all athletes-the Olympics. On any day one could see the violet-jerseyed trackmen going through their paces onOhioField's oval track. The turf inclosed by the cinder path swarmed with weight men, high jumpers, pole vaulters, practising amid the spinning discus and qluivering javelin Hashing in the sunli ht. Sprinters sped down the straightaway, t eir flying feet contrasting with the slzow jog of the distance men, while Coach Von Elling surveyed the scene with a practised eye. With such a strong squad many difficulties were encountered in ob- taining dual meets, Columbia and Rutgers being the only universities willing to compete a ainst us. These two were met and conquered. Rutgers was defeated by a squadg made u of second string men. The score of the Columbia meet was 83-52 in favor of tllie Violets.

The other first places were in the distance medley run where Captain-elect Shleffar, Nlaloney, Barker, and Nordell combined to win easily. ln the four-mile relay Cxrodman, Maloney, Barker, and Nordell worked together to win in good time. lt was in this event that Barker gained a tremendous lead in the third leg permitting rangy Frank Nordell to stride to the tape thirty yards ahead of his closest rival. ln this relay event Cvrodman amazed the gallery by regaining hrst position after having dropped the baton. The half-mile relay team placed second in its specialty, as did the mile relay team. The sprint medley scored a third, and the two-mile relay team a fourth. George Spitz It was at this Penn Carnival that Pete Zaremba, a sophomore, first displayed his hammer-throwing potentialities to the sports world. He placed fourth with a throw of only 144 feet, but he was destined from that day on to improve steadily both in form and power, and capped the 1932 season by placing second in the National Senior Outdoor Championships, and later winning the lntercollegiate hammer- throw title with the remarkable heave of 17o feet, 6M inches. l-lis outstanding achievement, however, was winning third place in the Olympics with 170 feet, 10 inches. He was further honored by being awarded a place, together with George Spitz, on the All-American Track Team for 1932 because of his superlative performances.

Of these men three obtained berths on the Olympic Team, still the largest group from colleges in the ...iz 248 5... WEB THE VIOLET 1-Fifa' country. The ten men were Frank Nordell in the mile, Captain Howard Hick in the javelin, George Spitz in the high jump, Mort Reznick and Pete Zaremba in the hammer throw, joe Healy in the 4oo meter hurdles, Maloney in the mile, Barker in the 5ooo meter, and Charles jones and Abe ltzkowitz in the shot put. Of this array only Zaremba, Healy, and Spitz survived the strain of preliminary competition. Reznick, plac- ing fourth in the trials, was next in line in the hammer event. Healy, elim-inated in the 4oo meters early in the trials, took up 4oo meter hurdling, and with each successive performance bettered his previous times, finally winning the 4oo meter hurdle event in the Men's National Outdoor Track Cham- pionships, and setting a world's record in the semi-finals of the Olympics with the time of 52.2 seconds. This record was, for some unknown reason, later disallowed. N. Y. U. in the Olympics Spitz, another Olympic competitor, disappointed track followers by his com aratively poor performance in the high jump because of a twistednankle that was slow in healing. The Olympic high jump was won at a height which would ordinarily have been quite easykfor Spitz, for he has on innumerable occasions surpassed this mar . A source of pleasure to N. Y. U. men was the excellent perform- ances of two former N. Y. U. track captains, Phil Edwards, some- times known in sporting circles as "The Ebony Express," and Sol Furth. These two men competed in their special events, Phil Ed- wards in the 6oo meters, and Sol Furth in the hop-step-and-jump. Men who showed general excellence throughout the 1932 track season, although they received less recognition than did their more illustrious colleagues, were Co-Captain Pumphrey-a half-miler who had never run before coming to college and who had been entirely developed by Von Elling-Maloney, jones, the Mothner twins, Roche, Rosen, Blutreich, Elstein, Weinstein, Krosne , Golankie, Kasmer, Nase, Chainsky, and Diorio.

INDOOR TRACK TEAM has completed a com etitive season crammed with intensive rivalry, mishaps, unexpected upsets andj thrillin sur- prises. Handicapped at the very outset by a troublesome injury to Captain Shifeffar, the squad valiantly strove to overcome its loss. These inevitable injuries also struck down later in the season the much-needed Healy, and impaired the effectiveness of George Weinstein and Frank Nordell. But despite these many unforeseen accidents, N. Y. U. successfully competed in over ten track meets and was runner-u for three major titles. The team totalled 17M points in the Senior Metropolitan Clhampion- ships, 16 in the National A. A. U., and 28 points in the I. C.-4A. ln the first two instances the squad was outdistanced by the New York A. C., composed largely of N. Y. U. graduates. ln the I. C.- A. meet N. Y. U. fell victim to the unfortunate tricks of fate-a dropped baton in flue first leg of the mile relay lost us the champion- ship, and stunned a crowd of ten thousand frenzied spectators who had come with the expectation of seeing a gallant N. Y. U. team outscore an unusually powerful Yale aggregation. In the very first meet, the Knights of Columbus Games, the Von Elling-men dis- played their strength. lt was there that Harry Hoffman gave to the track world the first indication of the brilliant races he was to run in the future. He won the Columbus five hundred yard invitation run in the excellent time of 60 zf 5 seconds, while George Barker placed second to his arch-rival, joe McCluskey, in the 5ooo meter run. The next large meet in which N. Y. U. showed to a good advantage was the jefferson Meet on january 24. Here Frank Nordell won the 1500 meter run in :oo4 15. Nordell ran a characteristically clever race to win over jim Maloney, formerly of N. Y. U., and Frank Crowley of Manhattan. lt was, however, in the Senior Metropolitan Championships that the lanky, blonde junior reached his peak. In a scintillating performance, and showing truly remarkable recu erative power, he won both the 1500 and iooo meter events. ln both races he ran ffis field into the ground in such a decisive manner that not one of the many thousand spectators present was left with any doubts concerning the superiority of the N. Y. U. "Iron Man." The unusual aspect of his victory in capturing these two championships was the fact that the two races were run within thirty-five minutes of each other. Other point scorers in this meet were Abe Scheuer in the shot-put, Anthony Diorio in the high Orenstein . Shleffar Manager Captain ...g 250 5... 'Yin THE VIOLET Ji' Reznick Zaremba iump, George Barker in the 5000 meters, and our 2200 medley relay team composed of Hoffman, Shleffar, Kastner and Barker. A week later, in the Seton Hall Meet, Nordell, not yet laid low by a weakening cold, ran a gallant yet futile half-mile in the anchor leg of the two mile relay, the team being composed of Nordell, the Mothner twins, and Kastner. Nordell's time of 1 :5 5.6 was, by far, one of the best half-mile performances of the year when one considers the short, many-turned Seton Hall track upon which it was run. This event was the one in which we placed second to the Manhattan relay team. lt was in the Millrose Games that one of the most exciting races of the year was run-a race never to be forgotten by those who saw it, one that shall remain a con- troversial point whenever N. Y. U. track enthusiasts congregate. This thrilling spectacle was the 1600 meter relay race in which Harry Hoffman, running the anchor leg for N. Y. U., took the baton eight yards behind William Carr of Pennsylvania and closed the gap to finish in what seemed to some a dead heat and to others a vic- tory for N. Y. U. When one considers the dauntless competitive spirit of a runner who is handicapped at the outset of a race by a distance of eight yards between him- self and the world's record holder and Olympic winner in the 400 meters, and who actually draws up on even terms with his opponent with utter disregard for every- thing but his belief in his own ability, one begins to realize the magnitude of Hoff- man's accomplishment. When one further considers, besides the physical disad- vantage of intervening distance, the psychological handicap imposed upon Hoffman by the words of the public announcer at the very moment when the N. Y. U. quarter- miler reached anxiousl for the baton: "Carr, Olympic winner and world record holder, running anchor leg for Pennsylvania," one must pay tribute to the indomitable will of man. The decision of the officials in favor of Pennsylvania, though of little consequence, was hotly contested by track experts who were present at the race. The time of 3 :z1.z, good as it is, is by no means an indication of the brilliance of this event. lt was in these same Millrose Games that George Spitz made his athletic bow for the 1933 season. His leap of 6 feet 5 inches enabled him to win easily and served to silence many doubters who refused to believe that his failure in the Olym ics was caused by a temporary ailment. John Kunitzky, Heights sophomore, won the 50 meter handicap race and gave warning to the track world of his ability as a sprinter. The two mile relay team placed second to an excellent Boston College group of stick-passers. In the Boston A. A. Meet the mile relay team, composed of Healy, Lamb, Wil- liams and Hoffman, gained ample revenge for its defeat at the hands of the Pennsyl- vania team by defeating the boys from the U. of P. in a most decisive manner. Spitz continued his winning ways with a leap of 6 feet, 5 inches, and Nordell, beginning to ...4 251 5... 'feb THE VIOLET C759 show the effects of his ailment, was runner-up to Carl Coan in the famous Hunter Mile classic. George Spitz raised the N. Y. U. high jump record by a full inch when, in the New York A. C. Games, he leaped six feet and seven inches, thus dispelling the last remnants of doubt as to his superiority in his own special event. Nordell still re- mained in the scoring column by running second to the great Hornbostel in the half- mile. Kastner placed second in the 1ooo yard handicap and both mile rela teams annexed second place, each in its own division. lt was fortunate that the team composed of Healy, Lamb, Williams and Hoffman did not lose the services of Wil- liams when he fell through the badly-worn boards of the track as he was rounding t me turn. The National A. A. U. Championship Meet saw several new records created, among which two were established by the Violets. George Spitz shattered his own mark of 6 feet 7 inches to set a new standard at 6 feet 8M inches. The other record was made by Mort Reznick when he heaved the thirty-five pound wei hc fifty feet, ten inches. Zaremba also placed in this event. One of the surprises of the evening was the excellent performance of Sam Grodman who placed third in the 3ooo meter steeplechase. The mile relay team, deprived of the services of joe Healy, placed third, and the two mile relay team captured a fourth. The l. C.-4A. Meet concluded the season with Von Elling's charges favored to win. However, the team's strength was lessened by the illness of Healy and other misfortunes which had further decimated its ranks. But where certain favorites fell down, new luminaries ap eared. john Kunitzky placed in the sprints, Bernard Krosney scored in the broad? jump, and both Scheuer and Finklestein garnered points in the shot-put. Spitz contributed points by winning the broad jump and tying with Keith Brown of Yale in the high jump. His nine points proved valuable in the final reckoning and made him highest individual scorer of the evening. Nordell, despite his continued ill health, took third in the mile, while George Barker placed third in the two mile event. For the second time within the week Mort Rezniclc won the thirty-five pound weight throw, this time defeating Holcomb of Yale with a heave of fifty-three feet two and one-eighth inches. Pete Zaremba gained another point for N. Y. U. with his fifth place in this event. N. Y. U.'s total of twenty- eight points however was topped by the score of thirty-two which Yale had amassed for itself, and, by the unfortunate incident of a dropped baton in the first le of the mile relay, N. Y. U. temporarily relinquished its I. C.-4A crown. Tie true superiority of Yale is to be contested in a dual meet at New Haven during the out- door season. The season, taken as a whole, was a brilliant one both from the standpoint of team performance and the showing of certain individuals. N. Y. U. has won for itself an envied place in the annals of intercollegiate track history and its most obvious task is to preserve its eminence in the future. V ...4 252 5...

In this 1932 cross-country season Captain Barker came through to take a first place in the Metropolitan Intercollegiate Cross-Country Championship, and a short time later he re eated by winning the Intercollegiate Cross-Country Championship in the remarkabljy fast time of 28 minutes and 58 4f5 seconds, the first collegiate cross-country runner to run six miles under 29 minutes. His next achievement was to lead the New York University team to a second place in the Metropolitan Intercollegiate Cross-Country Championships. In this contest Manhattan won team honors b bunching her five men among the leaders, taking the metropolitan crown for the first time in five years. It was this same Manhattan team that won the I. C.-4X-I. Cross-Country Championship by beating the Syracuse team which, in turn, barely nosed out N. Y. U. Striding hard, and not very far behind in every race was rangy Frank Nordell, of' mile and half'-mile fame, who fought his way to second place behind Barker in the Metropolitan I. C. C. C. and took sixth place in the I. C.-4r'-I. Cross-Country Meet. Tommy Nase, Bill Chainski and Bill Patton also contributed to the team's success by capturing twentieth, forty-third, and forty-fifth place respectively in the I. C.-41-X. run. After a highly successful season in which the team captured four dual meets, placed second in the Metropolitan I. C. C. C., and third in the I. C.-4A. Cross- Country Championships, Tommy Nase was elected captain for 1933. N. Y. U. THE 1932 RECORD Opponents 25 . ........ Fordham .......... . 30 23 . ....

'iib THE VIOLET Jig The K Lacrosse Team l Albert Brisotti loseph Schfmhfef Coach Assistant Coach TAKING games won and lost as a standard, the 1932 Lacrosse season was not a success. But as exponents of fighting s irit and good sportsmanship the Violet twelve was extremely successful. A gruellling schedule, injuries to stars, and the lack of adequate reserve skill proved to be insurmountable difficulties for Coach Al Brisotti's men. The picture was brightened during the season by the sterling play of Co-ca tains Lee Kelly and Sam Aronowsky, Ed Chester, Dan Meyerson, Sam Roth, an5Elliot Stark. ' 0 enin their season with Princeton on April 2, the Violet stickmen went down to defeat after a hard fought struggle. The team started with a rush, but lack of condition and reserve strength finally told. The next Saturday found the team over- whelmed b a smart, tricky, and experienced Swarthmore outfit. It was in this encounter that Mike Firstenberg showed si ns of equalling his gridiron excellency with some brilliant feats on the Lacrosse ffeld. On April 13 came the brightest spot on the team's record. With Washington College leading 5-1 going into the last period, the Violet came on with a rush to score five goals and thus gain its first win of the season. It is to be noticed that the Hall of Famers in the majority of their games did their scoring early. The ruelling game of Lacrosse demands large numbers of well con- ditioned reserves ancf these the Violet did not have. When Army could put five complete teams on the field, and little Swarthmore almost an equal number, it is not surprising that the small N. Y. U. squad did no better than it did. In fact, it is to be congratulated for having done so well. The Violet always managed to give its opponents a trying first half at least. But when the other teams sent streams of fresh reserves into the game the Hall of Famers found the odds too great. The loss through injuries of Sid Schreiber, an All-American, was a severe blow to the team. Coach Brisotti could find no replacement of Schreiber's ability, and, as a consequence, the Violet attack failed to function smoothly. Another weakness was at goal where neither Harf nor Pat Kelly could rise to the task of filling jerry Lichtman's shoes. Among the men who have been graduated are Co-captains Kelly and Aronowsky, Ed Chester, Sam Roth, Dan Meyerson, and Mike Firstenberg, all of whom starred for the Violet. The best of the holdovers are Elliot Stark, an attack man, jack Delmonte, Matthew Jaffe, Clark, jerry Kraus, and lrv Nelson. ...4 254 in- 'Eb THE VIOLET 1'5" This year the number of men on a Lacrosse team has been cut to ten, and the playing held has been reduced in size. These changes have been made with an eye toward speeding up the play and making it more en'oyable for the spectators. The Violet is being conditioned by former Captain Joe Schachter who is now a hysical training instructor. The team will be young and fast, and while its record frdr 1933 may be no improvement over last year's, it shows great promise for the future, so that we will again be able to boast of men like Schreiber, Rosen, Beckman, Meyerson, Schachter, and Newman who gained places on the All-American Lacrosse Squad.

Prospects for an unbeaten season existed at the start of the year, and the Violet seemed well on its way to realizing this dream of all athletic organizations by sweeping its first ten contests, only Ford- ham being able to garner as many as two of the nine matches that comprise the regu- lation dual meet. The last hurdle was a trifle too much, however, for we were stopped by North Carolina University, led by Bryan Grant with an all-star supporting cast, and when the fuzz-covered pellets had ceased crossing the net, the New York contingent had bowed to an 8-1 defeat. Qur only consolation was that North Carolina later earned itself the title of National Intercollegiate Team Champions. The tennis team was supreme on its home court. For the fourth consecutive season, the State Intercollegiate Outdoor Championship was captured by the Violets, who presented winners in both the singles and doubles, defeating teams like Cornell, Syracuse, St. john's, Fordham, Columbia, and Union in the course of their march to victory. The individual prowess of the members of this well-balanced group did not quite come up to the standard of their team play, for in the National Intercollegiate Tournament, won by the renowned Cliff Sutter, only two men got as far as the quarter-finals. These were Alan Swayze and Sidney Selison, both of whom had the misfortune to be in the strongest half of the draw. The Violet racquet-wielders were generally conceded to be the strongest team in this area, their only rival in N. Y. U. tennis history being the 1930 team which like- wise tasted defeat but once. The 1932 schedule was more representative of Eastern collegiate tennis strength, which made the storming of the nets a more difficult prob- lem. The one-sided victories scored in the first ten matches left no doubt as to the superiority of the Emerson-coached volleyers. ...r 255 i... Wit, THE VIOLET cf?" The team was composed of the two Sidneys, Berger and Seligson, Alan Swayze, Captain for 1933, Donald Hawley, Harold Sherkin, the amusing eccentric ofthe team, Kenneth Underwood, and "Happy" Rosenbaum. The Nlanager was Clifford Schuman. lt would be unfair to the other members of the team to pick out the one or two outstanding stars, so nearly equal in playing ability was the entire group. The differ- ence between the number 1 man and the number 6 man was not more than a game in a set. The outlook for 1933 is a happy one. Although Berger, Seligson, Rosenbaum, and Sherkin are graduated, Swayze, Hawley, Stiefberg, and Underwood remain to carry on. The addition of such younger players as Koslan, Geller, and Zimmerman, who enjoy Eastern junior rankings, should bring the team play up to its usual high standard, shown by the collective winning of 79 matches against a loss of only 17.

'93, THE VIOLET Jiff' The Swimming Team Wahl l Gitenstein Coach Captain F this season's ten swimming meets, five were held in our home pool at London Terrace, and among the others were included trips outside the city to both West Point and Rutgers. The season opened with Rider College outswimming us to a 31-28 score. C. C. N. Y., whom we outsplashed last year 50-21, retaliated by marking up a score of 5 5-16, which was a complete upset. ' But the Amherst meet of January 27th, 'which was a substitution for the can- celled engagement of December 19th with Colgate, was our first victory, the visitors being outswum 39 to 32. jack Buckley, the Violet's star backstroker who was ill during the fall practice and who joined his squad for the first time this year at the C. C. N. Y. meet, took first place in his 150 yard event. Irving Frank and Gene Altschuler together won twenty of our thirty-nine points in this meet by each winning two first places-Frank in the 220 and 440 events, and Altschuler in the 50 yard dash and the 100 yard free style. Though the Army trip was an anticipated event it was not until the dou hboys had trimmed us 48-23 that we met Fordham, our ancient marine rival, and ciialked up the second victory. The Fordham meet was close, each team capturing four first places with Frank again winning both the 220 and 440 free style events for N. Y. U. ln the Rutgers meet, contested at New Brunswick, we held three of the eight first places. Buckley was beaten by a mere inch in the back-stroke event. The Manhattan meet, our seventh, which was swum in the Jasper's home ool, was a decided 41-18 victory for our mermen. lrving Frank and Mark Golcljman won us two first places in the 440 free style and the zoo ard breaststroke respectively. Bill Nigen's capture of the diving honors, together with our relay team of Steinbiss, Lusterman, Tuckerman, and Gottfried coming through, brought us four first places. These, with a majority of second and third places, gave us the winning margin. Cornell's defeat in our own pool was our fourth victory of eight meets. Six of the ei ht first places Cwon by Buckley, Nigen, Frank, Altschuler, and the relay teamj helper? to make it a score of 46-25. In the Columbia meet of March fourth, at the Morningside Heights pool, we were taken over by a 46-25 score. Frank was missed in the 440 event, though he took first in the 220. Buckley and Hobbes were tied for first place in the back-stroke pull. .ur 253 1... 'WEB THE VIOLET Jfiw In the last dual meet of the year with Carnegie, the Violet finished the season successfully by running up a score of 32-27, for in spite of the visitors' taking five of the seven first places, second and third places proved to be our stronghold. We lose several men this June with the class of ' 33, among them Jack Buckley, the veteran back-Stroker. But Hobbes is explected to carry on admirably, with McGuire and de Zafra among others entering t e oflicial line-up next season. At the Eastern Colle iate meet, run off at Rugers on Saturday, March 12th, N. Y. U. was representec? by seventeen men. Rutgers made a clean sweep, and our second place of last year was supplanted by the six points won by Frank's third and Altschu er's fourth places in the 440, and Nigen's second place in the diving. On the whole, the season was rather a successful one, though we have done better in past years. There is worlc ahead for next year's squad. THE 1933 RECORD N. Y. U. Opponents 28 ....

WR, THE VIOLET Jfiff' The Fencing Team Castello Di Cviacinto Coach Co-Captain HAVING completed a successful season for 1932, during which the team created a new record for all N. Y. U. fencing teams, the Varsity entered this year's camgaign with but two men lost. Harold Pichet, who completed his undergraduate wor , and Teddy Rose, who went to tl1e University of Nebraska, were the men missing from the starting line-up when the new season bega11. Victories were scored over Harvard, M. I. T., Columbia, C. C. N. Y., and Pennsylvania by overwhelming margins. The only defeat of the season came at the hands of the strong Yale team, which later' won the Intercollegiate three-weapon championship. Victories of 3 to 1 in epee and sabre by N. Y. U. were insuflicient to overcome the lead of 8 to 1 which Yale had obtained by a H ing start in the foil division. During the entire season the team won 65 bouts anti, lost but 36. The Intercollegiate Championships saw the Violet gain revenge for its setback at the hands of Yale by winning the foil team match 5 to 4 in the ,final round-robin-- a defeat which cost the New Haven team the Intercollegiate Championshi in this weapon. N. Y. U. placed third in the foils, while four individuals reached tge finals: Albert Di Giacinto in foils, Melvin Zimet in saber, jose de Capriles and Walter Grautoff in epee. The latter two won second and third place respectively, earning for New York University the first intercollegiate medals since 1929. The team brought to N. Y. U. its first national championship when it won the National junior foils team championship in a series of thrilling bouts at the Fencer's Club. The feature of this com etition were the nine consecutive victories by Albert Di Giacinto. The members ofpthe team, jose de Capriles, Albert Di Cviacinto, and Gilbert Weil earned the distinction of being the first New York University fencers to receive major Varsity letters. The 1933 squad bids fair to equal or surpass the brilliant record of the 1932 team. Endowed with a wealth of reserve material from last year's Freshman team the Varsity squad started aus iciously by capturing three major championships during the month of january. The New jersey division made two handsome contributions to the University trophy room when the Violet romped off with the junior foil and Junior epee team titles. The hi h spot of the early season was an impressive victory by de Capriles, Zimet and Melgilmann in the competition for the National junior sabre team championship against one of the strongest fields ever to participate in this tournament. The team fenced 25 bouts and won 23, creating a record that is likely to stand for many years. lt seems almost certain that the men who brought N. Y. U. its second national championship will be awarded major Varsity letters. ...r 260 5... Wife THE VIOLET Jif' I The dual meet season hegan in an encouraging Fashion when the Varsity turned back a strong Alumni combination 9 bouts to S, winning the foils 5 to 4, and dividing with the graduates in epee and sabre. During the 1932 season fencing at New York University achieved additional recognition when Nliguel A. de Capriles, faculty adviser of the team, became the First Violet graduate to earn a place on the American Olympic team. De Capriles fenced in the epee division, in which the United States took third place-the highest ranking ever achieved by an American team in this particular event. 1933 Intercollegiate Fencing Championships: Intercollegiate Foils Championship Team: de Capriles, Di Criacinto, Kornfeld Qwon "Iron Nlanl' Trophybg first placeg gold medals for each man.

SEK, THE VIOLET Jfife The Gym Team Wilson Grant Coach Captain AFTER a quite successful season in 1931 the Gym Team entered 1932 with high hopes for an even better year, but it met with the inevitable hardships that so often hamper our minor sport teams. The eligibility ruling was the greatest deterrent to a successful season in that it put Frank Cumiskey off the team. Cumiskey was only a sophomore but he had compiled an enviable record even before entering college. While competing for a New Jersey high school 'he won the all-around championship in the gym event in a state-wide competition. After having been put on probation in his sophomore year he won the Metropolitan and National championships in the side horse. The mainstay of the previous year's team was Duane Grant who, al- though only a Junior, had been elected captain of the '32 squad. The first college competition entered into was a dual meet with the Naval Acad- emy at Annapolis. Navy has the strongest gym team in the country and although the Violet squad lost 42 to 12, the showing of Cumiskey was outstanding. He won the side horse by a wide margin, while Captain Grant was just barely nosed out of second -place by an Academy man. Cumiskey also placed second in the horizontal bars and third in the parallel bars. Grant took a third in the rope climb with the fine time of six seconds, while Gottlieb brought in the last point with a third in the tumbling event. In the next meet of the season the Violet squad travelled to Temple College in Philadelphia and lost a very close match by the score of 28 to 26. Duane Grant exhibited rare form in this meet, winning three events and placing second in a fourth. He compiled his eighteen points by placing first in the side horse, parallel bars, and rope climb, and by taking second in the flying rings. He probably would have won this last event too, but for a wrist cramp sustained in the rope climbing event. This was the first meet in which the absence of Cumiskey was severely felt, because, al- though the squad was composed of seven veterans from the previous years, none of them were top-notch performers of Grant's calibre. The other point scorers for New York University were Norstrancl, with a second in the horizontal bars, Bern- stein, third in the side horse, Gottlieb, second in the tumbling, and Mansur's third place in the rope climb. ...4 262 5... 'uijb THE VIOLET CEN' fs. The third meet of the season on March 4 was with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and once again the Violet failed to win, losing by the score of 34-zo. The impossibility of having a central location for practices was another of the hin- drances met during the season. For the entire year the squad of some twenty-five men were forced to journey twice a week to Dickinson High School in New jersey. Once again the versatility of Captain Grant prevented the match from becoming a runaway, for he took a Erst in the sidehorse, second in the parallel bars, and thirds in the flying rings and in the horizontal bar. The Dartmouth match was more closely contested but once again the New York team succumbed to the superior work ofthe opponents, 30M to 23 Again Duane Grant saved us from complete rout by scoring IOM points in the competition, and Norstrand contributed to the point score with a second and a third place in the hori- Zontal bar and Hying rings event. The culmination of the season was the Intercollegiate Gymnastic Championships which were held at Annapolis. Having but one all-around competitor, Duane Grant, there was but one man representing the school. Duane placed third in the all around competition which includes tumbling, flying rings, parallel bars, side horse, and the high bar. This was a distinct triumph for New York University, and Grant deserves credit for his fine work which was especially commendable, inasmuch as he scored very few points in the tumbling competition. The team was managed by Silbio Sartore, and coached by the coach of Dickinson High School, Alexander Wilson. Major letters were awarded to Duane Grant for placing in the Intercollegiates, to Lincoln Mansur, for placing in the rope climb in both the Senior and junior Mets, and also to Frank Bernstein for winning the Metro- politan Club-Swinging event. Minor letters were awarded to Cumiskey, Gottlieb, Norstrand, and to Arthur Beman, who injured his ankle in the Hrst meet and was kept out of competition for the remainder of the season. On the whole, the season was quite unsuccessful from a team standpoint, but the notable work of several of the individual stars more than makes up for this failure. ...gr 253 5... 'Eb THE VIOLET Jig The Golf Team Robert Duncan Lawrence Lesser Captain Manager THE 1932 GOLF TEAM did its share in sustaining New York University's athletic percentage by emerging triumphant in three of the four matches played with Universities within the Metropolitan area. Handicapped during the early portion of the Spring by the seeming adversity of Mother Nature to provide good golfing weather, the season got off to an inauscpicious start, for the team suffered its first and only defeat of the season at the han s of a strong Columbia group by the score of 9-O.' Considering the facts, however, that the day was a cold rainy one, and that lack of opportunities for practice existed at the time, the result was not as discouragin as it might have been. Moreover, the majority of the matches were decided on tie last few greens. The Columbia team deserves no end of praise, for despite weather conditions the six Lions averaged g7 a man. The laurels of the day must necessarily go to jack Evans of Columbia w o shot a brilliant 72 in beating Ross Baer, three and two, but the former was closely pressed for honors by Havemeyer and Sierjik who scored 75 apiece in beating Duncan and Mikrut. Ingram played well against Barnes, but the latter's deadly putting beat im, one up. After the severe defeat by Columbia, Coach Jimmy Wells and Captain Bob Duncan put their respective heads together and decided to lay four-man matches in the future, as against the six-man team that met the offers from Morningside Heights. ln this manner, the strength of the team could be condensed instead of spreading it as had to be done, with disastrous consequences against the Lions. The next opponent to face New York University was the veteran aggregation from Manhattan, all of whom had met N. Y. U. the year before, and who were out for revenge. Notwithstanding this fact, the green-sweatered lads went down to a four to two defeat, the feature match being the halved one between johnny Mikrut and "Russ" Columbo of Manhattan, both men shooting sparkling 7415. The next victim to fall before the mashies of the Violets was tiny St. Francis College of Brooklyn. Presenting a small but select group of golfers, St. Francis threw a scare into the home team by the narrow margin of victory to which N. Y. U. hnally fell heir. The only one-sided match of the day was the contest between Jim Dugan of St. Francis and Ross Baer of N. Y. U., in which Baer defeated his Brooklyn opponent by 5 and 3. Duncan halved with Lane in a thrilling match in which the lead alternated almost on successive holes. The chief scoring honors of the day went to Baer who had a 75 and Duncan and Lane who each had 76's. Danzer and Hildebrand scored St. Francis' only point in the foursome by trouncing Lesser and Schiller, 1 up. -4 264 5... sir, THE VIOLET CEM The climax of the year was reached, as it is in every sport, in the match with Fordham. The Rose Hill boys were favored to win by a goodly margin, but the Violets once more upset the dope by coming through to the tune of 4M-1M. In all six marches the University Heights mashie-wielders got the jump on the lrishmen and justly deserved their hard-won victory. Duncan and O'Connell drew in a con- test that produced good golf and Mikrut's best was just good enough to eke out a 1 up victory over Mulqueen. Baer again scored in tl1e most uneven match of the day beating Hines by 5 and 4 and triumphing with his doubles artner, Lesser, by 6 and 5 over Hines and Spellman, the latter in turn again being deflated by Lesser 1 up, in a match that was decided by the final putt. On the whole, New York University can pat itself on its olfing back in its second season of recognized existence. Hampered by a lack of funds, the schedule was necessarily devoid of traveling, only New York City teams being played. The team finished second in an informal Metropolitan Intercollegiate Golf League. No individual star can be named durin the college golfing season, although Mikrut went on to gain a goodly measure of flame by winning the World-Telegram's Hole-in-One Tournament during the fall of the year. Mikrut was undoubtedly the most brilliant shotmaker on the team, but was outranked in steadiness of play by both Duncan and Baer. Lesser, the playing manager who shone particularly off the tee, turned in some exceptionally good rounds. Duncan, Lesser and Baer artici- patecl in all the matches, the latter going undefeated and untied after the Collumbia debacle. Captain-elect Mikrut missed one match because of illness, but made up for it by his sparkling showing during the rest of the meets. Walter Ingram, playing manager for 1933, Ross Baer, johnny Mikrut and Irving Miller promise to be the mainstays for the Violets during the coming year. THE 1932 RECORD N. Y. U. Opponents o . . .....

'39 THE VIOLET 5' The Rifle Team g Wallace Barnett Coach Manager HIS season marks the Varsity Rifie Team's fourth year of competition since its reorganization in 1929. During this period, the record compiled by the riflemen representing N. Y. U. has been a satisfactory one. The team in 1929-1930, despite the lack of a coach, succeeded in winning three major championships. The handicap of being coachless was removed the following season by the ac- quisition of Coach Sergeant Wallace, U, S. Army, who alleviated somewhat the burden placed upon the shoulders of Captain Sievers and Manager Merril. The team was one of the best in the country and, in the'Eastern Intercollegiate Matches held at Boston, tied for first place. In the shoot-off the championship was disallowed on a technicality disqualifying one of the N. Y. U. scores. Following the match, Clyde Stoutenburgh was elected captain and Ray Waldman manager for the following season. The opening of a firing-range on the Heights was a new asset to Coach Wallace. More candidates tried out for the team, and, despite the loss of five veterans through graduation, a potent s uad of fine shots was found in Post, Zsuffa, Stoutenburgh, Hearn, Teitelbaum, and Barnett. The season ended with seven victories and three defeats. Of the seven National Rifie Association matches participated in by New York University only one was lost. The victor in this case proved to be a team of high caliber and ca acity-the Evening Division of Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute-which later won the championship of the Metropolitan area. At the Eastern Intercollegiate Championship matches held at West Point, the best the team could do was seventh place. John Post was high scorer for N. Y. U., taking sixth place in the field of seventy-live participants. At the conclusion of the season Roy Waldman was elected captain and C. A. Barnett was chosen manager. Only one veteran team member from last year remained for the season Of1932-33, Captain Roy Waldman. Waldman, Freshman Team manager for the 1929-30 season during which the N. Y. U. Freshmen captured the National Rifle Championship title, is a veteran with three years of varsity experience to his credit. Around him Coach Wallace succeeded in building a unit consisting of Barnett, Bronner, Prince, Allen, Stitt, Halvac, and Hartman. Fourteen matches were carded for the Violet riflemen this season. Among this number were ten dual and three triangular meets, besides the National Rifle Asso- ciation Championships. Ten were shoulder-to-shoulder matches and the remaining three were Postal contests in which each of the competing teams shot on its own range and then compared scores through the mail. ...Rr 266 it... WR, THE VIOLET t-E0 In the National Intercollegiate Matches, held March 25, 1933 at seven different places, the N. Y. U. sharpshooters, competing against eighteen of the leading rifle teams of Northeastern United States, took third lace in the Eastern section at Boston and fourteenth place in the National matclies. The accuracy and straight shooting of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and of New Hampshire College put them ahead of the Violet rifle men. The high scorers for the Violet were Charles A. Barnett, who scored 267 out of a possible 300 oints, and the team captain with a score of 265 points. The Violet team took tlie lead in the prone position by rallying 489 points. The lowest score in that division was a 97 out of a possible 100 points. The M. I. T. and New Hampshire aggregations surpassed the N. Y. U. shooters and annexed the contest by virtue of their high scoring in the kneeling and standing positions. At the end of the season john W. Rundt was elected Team Manager for the com- ing 1933-34 season. Charles A. Barnett, former team manager, was unanimously elected Team Captain for the next year.

'ieb THE VIOLET Jig Freshman Football I Archie Roberts Knee Coach Manager THE NEW YORK UNIVERSITY FRESI-IMAN FOOTBALL team opened its season against a Colgate outfit which had- already gained the experience of its first two encounters. A real crowd was present, and a live, new spirit for the Fresh- men games was in the air. The team, although composed of men younger than those of previous years, played with greater enthusiasm and displayed a splendid fighting spirit. Although Colgate won, they scored only in the opening quarter, and from then on N. Y. U. was a scoring threat. When the call for candidates was announced last fall, 115 men turned out, from whom a squad of forty-five was selected. With these boys Coach "Archie" Roberts went into the study and practice as well as the fundamentals and intricacies of the game. It is notable that this year ninety per cent of the Freshmen players were from New York City-a much higher percentage than for previous years. The metro- politan student body as a whole showed its appreciation by turning out in larger numbers than formerly. Before going further, it is with great sincerity that we predict a bright future for "Archie" Roberts, the young coach who is brimmin over with enthusiasm for this great man's gamef There seems to be nothing whictfi he loves more than coaching. In the next game the Violet came through victoriously by defeating the Mackenzie School. The Violet showed their fighting spirit here by several times holding the Mackenzie team from scoring when it was within five yards of the N. Y. U. goal line. At this stage of the season one was already able to single out several pla ers who promised well for the Varsity. Especially noticeable was the shiftiness oiyScarola, who bids well to become an outstanding back. Siegal displayed fine qualities as quarterback, and Smith may be remembered for his several long runs. He showed some of the style of our own Bob McNamara, but he still needs experience. Beglef man, De Angelus, and Machlowitz also distinguished themselves in the backfield. Line lay is usually slighted and attention given to the backheld instead, but the beautifulfy executed plays in the backfield depend for their satisfactory completion upon the aid and assistance of a good, strong line. In general, the Frosh linesmen .--4 268 in- wit, THE VIOLET 50 acquitted themselves well, and it should not surprise us to find several of the Frosh linesmen in next season's varsity berths left vacant by the ' 3 3 players this June. The third game of the season was against a more ex erienced team-the Junior Varsity of C. C. N. Y. The two captains met in midfieljd and the coin was tossed. C. C. N. Y. kicked off to N. Y. U. The Violet team, in possession of the north end of the field, received the kick-off and ran the ball back to midfield. Within the next two minutes of play, by means of beautiful runs on the part of Smith, the ball was carried over the goal line. The Violet team was too powerful for its opponents. Their onslaughts netted four touchdowns and two point kicks-the game's total points, and all scored by N. Y. U. ln considering our young team we must realize the great handicaps under which it labored. First of all, it started trainin during October, several weeks later than other teams. Secondly, it had no field of its own upon which to practice, and had to use Ohio Field, or a part of it, when the varsity team, with its extensive training, left it unused. These are real hardships for any team, and add to the value of their victories. One can say with true assurance that had our Frosh team not been bur- dened with these handicaps it could have accomplished much more than it did. In the fourth and last game of the season the team played against a clever and shifty Rutgers outfit-an old rival. In considering the statistics of the game one would be forced to accede victory to N. Y, U., althou h the game ended with a tie score. Two former teammates of Theodore Roosevelt High School-Scarola and Kaufman, of N. Y. U. and Rutgers respectively-played against each other in this game. Whatever were the results of the game, thanks must be given the Frosh for the invaluable aid they gave the varsity by practicing with them. Although they prac- ticed for a shorter preliminary period than last year's team, the comparative results speak for themselves: THE 1932-33 RECORD N. Y. U. Opponents 7 ..... Colgate ..... 12 7 ....

'HR THE VIOLET Jin Freshman Baseball Archie Roberts Leonard Eckmann Coach Manager WITH the varsity Track and Baseball Teams practicing on Ohio Field last spring, Freshman baseball practice proceeded under difficulties, but their winning 70 per cent of their games speaks well for the diligent work and intensive drilling of both Coach Roberts and his men. When "Archie" Roberts issued a call for freshmen candidates early in the Spring of '32, 135 men turned out, from whom 25Awere selected. Coach Roberts must be given cre it for exerting tact in not discouraging the future laying of those elimi- nated, and for keeping ever in mind the development of his chosen men as potential varsit material for their sophomore year. There were several who distinguished themselves last season and who improved noticeably under Coach Roberts' grooming. Biles, Gottlieb, and Williams starred as pitchers. In the infield Kieper, Weintraub, and Wagner did good work. Young Wagner carries with him the baseball tradition of his father-"Hans" Wagner of big league renown. And Kane, Kaufman, and Winters seem each to bid well for the varsity catcher's birth. Of -the entire baseball squad, fifteen men were awarded their letters. They were a splendid outfit, did credit to both themselves and their coach, and promise unusually well for the future. THE 1932 RECORD N. Y. U. Opponents 3 . ..... Evander Childs H.

'Eb THE VIOLET CE' Freshman Basketball X Archie Roberts Irving Roth Coach Manager OACH ARCHIE ROBERTS' corps of Hedgling courtmen pranced across the pinewood with enough skill last fall to capture ten out of twelve regularly scheduled basketball contests. The Violet frosh amassed a total of 382 points against 235 for the combined opposition. The two defeats were sustained on foreign terri- tory by one point margins, the Hall of Fame cubs conquering all visitors in their Heights gymnasium playground. Although various combinations were used throughout the season, Coach Roberts finally hit upon a polished quintet in Siegal at right forward, Machloqitz, left for- ward, Weinstein at center, Geffin, right guard, and Maidman at left guard. The star alternates were Strauss, Greenberg, Meyerson, and Winkelman. Opening the season with a decisive 36 to 29 victory over a powerful Kips Bay contingent, the baby Violets showed championship potentialities. Evander Childs H. S., however, dispelled all optimistic illusions when it nosed out a fighting N .Y. U. freshman five, 22 to 20. After this initial setback, the frosh team gathered speed as it went along and succeeded in amassing nine successive victories. Following the Evander brawl, Webb Institute put up a paper defense, and the first year men scampered away with a 49 to 12 win. Roosevelt H. S. was the next to fall before the shifty Violet attack, succumbing under a 47 to 21 score. Yonkers H. S. then came in for a trouncing when it was swamped 22 to 13. A touted frosh jasper team from Manhattan almost put the skids under the Violet when it pushed the Hall of Fame yearlings into an extra period. But a successful foul try put the Violet ahead, 23 to 22, and the Roberts men were able to maintain the lead until the final whistle ended the contest. A smooth Lavender jayvee quintet from City College made an ap earance on the schedule, and they were taught a costly lesson in a see-saw battle that Enally went to N. Y. U., 36 to 32. Fordham University's freshmen almost gave the Violet its first intercollegiate defeat when they tenaciously hung on to a narrow lead, only to be overcome in the last few minutes by a flurry of N. Y. U. baskets that left the final tally 25 to 24, with Coach Roberts' proteges on top. john Adams H. S. then took the wind out of the Violet sails by nosing out the local talent, 24 to 23, on a Brooklyn court. The game was a nip and tuck affair, but the Brooklynites were more conscientious in their nip ing and tucking, and man- aged to slip through to a one point victory. Riverside Church was then subdued in the final confiict of the season, when its team was submerged under a 34 to 25 score. ...r 271 5... 5219 THE VIOLET Ji' Freshman Track Joseph Hickey Williani Quasha Coach Manager UNDER the guidance of Coach joe Hickey the 1935 Frosh track team finished a season dotted with brilliant team performances, and excellent individual showings, Handicapped by the ineligibilities of several outstanding performers, Coach Hickey's squad was long delayed in reaching its peak of form, but when it did reach it, the squad thundered the last stretch stepping away from its opponents. In its last meet, showing a powerful drive, the Frosh defeated Rutgers '35 by the over- whelming score of 72-44. In this 1935 squad were several men from whom much is expected, in the near future. John Kunitsky, a gracefully built sprinter, not only broke the Frosh 220 yard record in the time of 22.4 seconds in the Columbia meet, but went on later to win the Junior Nletropolitan 220 yard championship. In the same meet he was just nipped at the tape for the century title. He scored an average of thirteen points in all meets placing in the broad jump, and javelin throw, besides his specialty, -the sprints, In john Fatseas, a Grecian youth, can be seen the physique of the ancient classic ath- letes. V With a body as symmetrical as the famous Discobolus, he not only emulated that ancient's efficiency in tossing the disc, breaking the Frosh record with 121 feet 9M inches, but was also proficient in five other events, being able to perform excel- lently in the sprints, hurdles, shot put, broad jump, javelin, and discus. He is con- sidered by Von Elling as one of the best decathlon prospects in the East. He totaled 19 points in one meet and was not far below that in his other competitive scores. jules Finklestein, a 245-pound shot-putter, for whom Coach Hickey predicts a bright future, also bears watching. Not far behind their leaders were Tait, Post, Rippetee, Friedman, Casale, and Meuller, all helping to make the 1935 Freshman team an excellent assemblage of trackmen. The Frosh met Horace Mann, Fieldston, Nlanhattan, Columbia, Stony Brook, Fordham and City College in a triangle meet, and Rutgers, defeating Fieldston, Rut- gers, and placing second in the triangular meet.

Although confronted with a schedule which included teams such as Navy and Columbia, the Freshman fencers were able to come through the season undefeated. Following a call for candidates by the Heights co-captain, Albert Di Cviacinto, in Freshman Chapel, a record number of men turned out for practice. The first match of the season, won by a score of 6 to 3, was with Trinity. Foils was the only weapon contested. Seth Low, the next opponent, offered more resist- ance but was defeated, 5 bouts to 4. With two victories to its credit, the Freshman team left New York to face a strong Navy combination at Annapolis. For this match, all three divisions-foil, epee and sabre-were contested. Winning the last bout, after the score had been tied at eight all, the team managed to maintain its win- ning streak. l After defeating Columbia io-7 in a three-weapon dual meet, the Freshmen were certain that they could go undefeated for the season. Wels starred in this encounter by winning all his bouts-three in the foil and one in the epee. The sabre division, using Coach Castello's favorite weapon, showed up best in this meet. By winning 3-1, it did better than both the foil division with its score of 5-4 and the epee con- testants who tied at 2-2. St. John's did not offer much opposition to the now well-developed team. The meet was contested in the basic weapon-foil. Alvin Cederbaum, fencing with beautiful form, starred by winning all three of his bouts. The Freshmen also defeated the Textile High Foil team, 1932 P. S. A. L. cham- pions, by a score of 5-4. ...4 273 5... 'Eb THE VIOLET Ji' Intramurals THE CLASS OF 19 3 3 at New York University leaves behind it a four year period into which has been crowded the culmination of a significant change. Into this period has gone the smashing of a senile system and the hopeful beginnings of a new and better one. Within these last four years the University has assumed an admir- able undertaking. It has deliberately opened itself to a weighty burden of practical disadvantages that its conception of what was right should be realized. The class leaves New York University with respect for its intelligent appreciation of the evil in grand-scale athletics and with admiration for the courage it has exhibited in com- pletely and decisively banishing that evil from its program. New York University has turned its back upon the luster of glorified athletics, has set itself to the praiseworthy task of re-creating athletic endeavor as an end in itself rather than a means to some other purpose. The move was made in the face of violent criticism. lt was accompanied, and still is in many instances, with cyni- cism and doubt concerning its success. But regardless of the difficulties involved in the complete attainment of this success, the decision is a justifiable one for it is a forward step in educational progress. In the past, inter-collegiate athletic competition has afforded a natural and wholly desirable medium for the maintenance of American athletic traditions. lts raison d'etre lay in itself-healthy, spirited, colorful rivalry, the natural pleasure in intelli- gent combat. It was, and still is, the natural conclusion of the individual spirit of contest. Of late, however, we have lost sight of its purpose. The individual athlete's good is no longer its object, he has become simply a means for its gloriflca- tion. The element of competition has been distorted until its original function is no longer recognizable. ...4 274 5... 'Tm THE VIOLET Q50 The mania for victories has driven consideration of the individual into the back- ground. Winning teams have become correlated with ad- vancement of institutional prestige. Athletics have ceased, in most instances, to be a function of education. The concept of the athlete and that of the student have become divorced from each other. Today's athlete is a specialized animal, chosen on the sole basis of his physical usefulness as a part of a winning team. He is in a distinct category, differentiated from the student. He is classified and treated under a special system and under special conditions. Very seldom do we find an athlete who is a scholar, or a scholar who iS an athlete. The student, under such a system, cannot utilize "the team" as a means for his physical development. The production of winning teams necessitates the utilization of highly specialized and finished athletes. In almost every instance such specializa- tion prohibits an adequate devotion to studies. lt is impossible for the conscientious student to compete for a position on "the team" upon an equal basis with the man whose past has been devoted solely to his development as a specialized athlete. To use the time and facilities ofthe team and its coach for his own development would be a gross exhibition of lack of school spirit. He will usually find himself' entirely neglected, unnoticed, and out of place. Thus, the original purpose of athletic competition has been grotesquely distorted so that its exact opposite is being accomplished. Instead of a stimulation of the development of all-around excellence in college men, we find a distinct discourage- ment of that purpose. The possibilities of a student's development athletically are prohibited by the demand for abnormal ability. He has the unpleasant choice of specializing in one endeavor at the expense of the other. In either case his education is a lopsided one-the very condition which was in- tended to be avoided by athletic competition in the beginning. It is this abnormal dis- tortion of the spirit of athletic competition that ...r 275 5... -iii, THE VIOLET Jie- New York University has l decided to "de-emphasize." T lt is now its purpose to change the illogical connota- tion given of late to athletes -to reinstate in its place the original purpose of competi- tion, the development of the individual student. To this end a perpetual system of intramural athletics is plan- ned that each student may be presented with the op- portunity for a complete satisfaction of his athletic needs and desires, that athletic competition be established as a highly desirable end in itself, that there be presented for competition with other institutions, athletic teams composed of students whose athletic prowess has originated or has been developed at New York University, and whose right to be placed on such teams has been proven by their excellence in actual competition with their fellow students. The erection at the Heights of a fundamental section of what is to be a large, perfectly equipped gymnasium is the largest -material step which has been taken towards the realization of a completely efficacious intramural program. Together with the beginnings of this construction came the conversion of Hathaway Field into an adequate space for the further facilitation of intramural activity. Ohio Field, which has in the past been practically inaccessible to the amateur athlete has been opened to the general use of the student body for track, football, and baseball. Happily, the realization of a successful intramural program is not a myth on the campus, it is a growing, working reality, The intramural curriculum, as it now functions has been extended in a relatively short period of time, so that it has an amazingly wide inclusiveness and a large degree of actual realization. Under the direction of Mr. Racicot, a continuous and varied stream of intramural activi- ties moves smoothly through the school year, presenting to the student the privilege of choosing from a great host of athletic pastimes some form of active participation in extra-curricular endeavor. In almost every instance the privilege has been utilized to its fullest capacity by the , students. ...Hz 276 ig... ,., Y Mx, .W , 1 in . ,,.t,., ,jg-xx I,-, , f , sri 1 , .js-M-53 ..

The President of the Council, the Vice-President and the Secretary are elected by the college as a whole, the four class presidents and nine delegates elected by the individual classes make up the remainder. Five of these delegates are chosen by the Seniors, three by the Juniors, and one by the Sophomores. The Council at present has four chief functions: the selection of delegates to the student Senate, the subsidization of clubs and organizations, the recognition of soci- eties on the campus, and the holding of elections. This year has been a particularly active one for the Council. During the course of the year the following organizations were subsidized: The Daily News, The Uiolet, The Critical Review, The Quadrangle, The Palisades Handbook, The Student Direc- tory, the Glee Club, Dramatics, Perstare et Praestare, Alpha Pi, the Glider Club, the Debating Team, and the Chess Club. Further money was appropriated for the Fordham Rally and functions ofthe Y. M. C. A. During the course of the year the Council amended its constitution, making changes in the article concerning petitions for referenda by the student body, and adding an article on the suspension and impeachment of Council members. A Student Council Dance was held for the student body at large, and the Petty Loan Fund of one hundred dollars was established through the sanction and subsidiza- tion of a Junior-Senior Dance. Probably the IUOSC important step taken all year by the Council was the decision to create a Heights newspaper instead of continuing the all-University paper. The officers of the Council are: jack Schaye, president, James Dalton, vice-president, George Kastner, secretary. Menibers: Senior representatives: Ross Baer, Anthony Caputo, Leo DuBrow, George Huy, jr., and Bertram Swaybill, junior representatives: Williani Abee, William Flanagan, Arthur Peterson, and Peter Robertson, Sophomore representative: William Zimmermang Senior class president, Roger Squire, junior class president, Robert Barry, Sophomore class president, Ernest Stoutg and Freshman class president, Robert Leonard. ...4 291 5... WR, THE VIOLET Jin' The Undergraduate Scholarship Committee X f' . ' " ' '- . I-IE UNDERGRADUATE SCHOLARSHIP COMMITTEE was organized in 1922 under the name of the Dean's Committee. When Hrst established, it con- sisted o members of the faculty and students from the Arts and Engineering Colleges. It became, after the first year of its existence, purely an undergraduate organization and upon the formation of a separate Undergraduate Engineering Council last year, its membership was restricted entirely to Artsmen. One engineer, however, the chairman ofthe Undergraduate Engineering Council automatically became a member. The other members are selected upon a basis of merit in che scholastic, non-athletic, and extra-curricular fields. The functions of the committee are varied. As originally constituted under the name of the Dean's Committee, the body was to advise the administration of any reforms or innovations that it deemed necessary. Its held of activity has been considerably extended, however, in the last few years. Any matter pertaining to student welfare is generally recognized as proper subject matter for its investigation and recommendation. Its prime function is to link together che student body and the faculty. In this sphere lie most of its recommendations and investigations. lt ascertains and crystallizes student opinion upon matters pertainin to the curriculum or to the administration. It embodies the suggestions in the firm of resolutions which are laid before the Dean or the Faculty Council. And, finally, it defends its proposals by sending delegates to the Dean or by holding a joint session with the Faculty Committee. The officers are: Sidney Eriedberg, chairman, Ely Maurer, secretary. The Senior members ate. J. Adler, R. Baer, A. Brower, H. Grossman, M. Krotinger, J. Lobel, A. Tilove, E. Van Vliet. The Junior members are: R. Bloom, C. Dezafra, E. Klein, H. Posner, R. Tilove. The Engineer member is R. Allison. .4 292 5..- viii, THE VIOLET Jim The Undergraduate Engineering Council HE UNDERGRADUATE ENGINEERING COUNCIL was formed in the Spring of 1930 by a group of the outstanding men in the senior engineering class. Each year two men from each of the several engineering de artments are elected to membership. The nominations and election depend entirelJy upon the scholarship and character of the nominee. Seven engineering groups: Electrical, Air Transport, Industrial, Civil, Air Option, Mechanical, and Chemical engineering are represented in the Council. The officers are elected from the Council Group and by the Council members. The function of the Council is to recommend to the faculty whatever changes in the engineering curriculum it deems advisable. Besides, it serves to bring the faculty and students together on various concurrent problems. The Council has en- deavored expansion in its various activities and during the present year has proved itself to be a coercive force in the Engineering College. During its short period of existence, the Council has undertaken numerous prob- lems to work upon. It inaugurated a campaign against cribbing in examinations which has met with some measure of success in inducing the faculty to punish offenders more stringently. In several instances, the Council deemed that the number of credits for laboratory courses was too little. The authorities followed the recommended changes. An engineering library has been formed through its efforts. However, durin the past year the work of the Council has entered into more numerous fields. The supervision of "Engineering Demonstration Day" is a perma- nent task of the Council. As in the past, on some designated day in spring, members of different High Schools are invited to the College of Engineering to inspect the facilities and technical laboratories on the campus. The guests are invited to lunch at the Commons and to a baseball game in the afternoon. The Council sponsored a highly successful Technifrolic, this year's annual dance of the engineers of New York University. The officers arc: Robert Allison, chairman, Jack Delmontc, secretary. The members are: A. Anderson, H. Beckman, S. Cadwallader, R. Darby, G. Dcmeritt, P. Frank, C. Frcchem, E. Heil, S. Kenward, F. McGuire, H. Sharp, and W. Sutton. ...4 293 5... 'fb THE VIOLET Jig American Institute of Electrical Engineers HE NEW YORK UNIVERSITY branch of the American Institute of Elec- trical Engineers was established in 1924. The purpose of the organization is to promote an interest in electrical engineering. When the branch was begun, member- ship was confined to the senior electricals, but later the enrollment was increased by permitting the junior electricals to join. The seniors are the most active members of the society, but juniors and sophomores are welcomed at the meetings. All the business of the society is conducted by the students at the meetings which are held every two weeks. Reports of the meetings are sent to the national secretary and are rinted in the A.I.E.E. journal. The departments of Electrical Engineering and Publpic Speaking act as advisers in all the activities. At most of the meetings several technical papers are presented by the students. Before a topic can be selected, it must be approved by Professor Walker, the coun- sellor, who decides whether it is of suflicient interest to be developed into a paper. Several of the more interesting papers delivered by students were: "Speech Inversions and Secret Radio Transmission," "Peaked Wave Transformerfl "Push-Pull Ampli- fiers," and the "Measurement of Projectile Velocity." Guest speakers are occasionally invited to address the members. Motion pic- tures of a technical nature are also shown at meetings. From time to time inspection trips are made to various industrial plants where the members have the opportunity to observe the practical application of the subjects treated in classroom theory. The olliccrs are: Professor I-I. Walker, counsellorg W. Sutton, chairman, C. Hutchinson, secre- tary-treasurcrg R. Scholl, junior chairman. ...,j 294 rn, sift, THE VIOLET Jiff- American Institute of Chemical Engineers HE AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF CHEMICAL ENGINEERS was primarily established to give students of this profession a clear conception of their life work. Inladdition the society's purpose is to stimulate closer contact between the faculty and students, to build up an esprit de corps among the students themselves, and to promote improvement in scholarship. W Nigga 1 The first purpose is attained by inviting industrial leaders in the field of chemical engineering to address the society. Dr. Edgar of the Dupont Company spoke on the "Technology of Nitro-cellulose Lacquers" at a joint meeting with the Draper Chemical Society. Recent graduates are also invited to attend functions in order that their experiences may benefit the members of the group. Because so many students commute, and therefore partake in very little social life on the campus, it is quite important to build up a spirit of friendship and good-feeling among the society's members by bringing them together outside of class. To improve scholar- ship is the final aim. This is done by making the subject matter interesting and by obtaining cooperation between students. The upper classmen aid sophomores or freshmen requesting assistance in their studies. At the present time the society is being reorganized. Heretofore membership was only open to students of chemical engineering. Henceforth membership is to be elective, and a display of interest in the society's functions will be necessary for admission. A new constitution, modelled after that of the Michigan University Student Chapter of the A.l.C.E., has been drawn up and is in the process of revision. The oflicers are: Robert C. Allison, president, Eugene B. Delrass, vice-president, Raymond Grosjean, treasurerg and Murray Singer, secretary. Mr. Lamb is tffe faculty adviser. Members: I. Cooper, R. Cornwell, P. Frank, A.

'Yin THE VIOLET 65" The Society of Automotive Engineers HE SOCIETY OF AUTOMOTIVE ENGINEERS is an international organ- ization composed of over 7,ooo men representing the fields of Aeronautical, Marine, and Automobile Engineering. The present society dates back to 19o4 when Henry Ford, H. P. Maxim, and H. M. Swetland founded thc "Society of Automobile Engineers." This grew con- tinually in scope and magnitude from 5o original localized charter members, until its incorporation in New York State in 1909 showed an aggregate of 4oo technicians representing many parts of the country. In 1916 two other similar groups, the "Society of Aeronautic Engineers" and the "Society of Tractor Engineers" were consolidated with the "Society of Auto- mobile Engineersn to form the present day "Society of Automotive Engineers." At New York University a student branch of the Parent Society was organized in 1929, to bring before its members men prominent in the field of Automotive Engineering. Under its aus ices many leaders of the industry in Aeronautical, Marine, and Automobile fields have come to University Heights and addressed the branch. This has afforded the student members excellent opportunity to enrich their intellectual assets, and to make valuable personal contact with these men. During the past year the branch at New York University was composed of about 25 members, mostly aeronautical engineers. In addition to local addresses by a number of well-known engineers at University Heights, the members have attended numerous meetings of the Metropolitan Sections. The officers of the Branch Society for the Year 1932-33 were: Ellis I.. Jacob, president, George V. judge, jr., vice-president, Henry B. Fcrnald, jr., vice-president in char e of aeronauticsg and Robert Ellwanger, secretary-treasurer. The members are: Irving Boyer, Allan Birdman, Herbert Brennan, K. H. Chang, Thomas Dunn, Robert Darby, George Forman, Walter Grautoif, Louis Golden, Harry Goett, Robert Hermann, Edward Heyl, William Keller, Harry Kheong, Charles Hall, Charles Moses, George O'Hare, Jr., Costas Pappas, Isidore Rubin, Silvio Satore, Robert Wolfson, and Leslie Parkinson. ...r 295 r...

The chapter, with members in both the day and evening sessions oiythe University, ranks in size with the largest in the country. On the Atlantic City trip, the members attended the Student Chapter Confer- ence, where the problems of the various chaplters were discussed. New York Uni- versity had the largest representation of all t e schools attending this conference. Mr. George Seeley, an alumnus of New York University, was the main speaker at a smoker held a short time later in the Lawrence House. He told of the develop- ment of the Port of Buenaventura, carried on by American engineers for the govern- ment of Colombia. His talk was illustrated by motion pictures. Mr. Hayden, contact member of the society, and designing engineer for the Westchester County Parks Commission, also spoke at this smoker. The evening engineers, admitted last year to membership in the chapter, showed great interest in the society by attending most of the smokers and extending invita- tions to the day men to visit their own meetings. Professor Schwarze, faculty sponsor, is as enthusiastic as ever about the prospects of the group. The society has another interested patron in Professor Saville, well- known sanitation and hydraulic engineer, who has recently joined the faculty. The oflicers are: George Rigely, president, Louis Pack, vice-president, August Krohn, secretary, and Roger Ley, treasurer. The members are: A. Adamson, A. Ammann, E. Archibald, T. Arono- vitz, A.

'Yin THE VIOLET Jig The American Society of Nlechanical Engineers HE New York University Chapter of the American Society of Nlechanical Engineers, chartered in 191o, is one of the 1o8 student branches scattered through- out forty-six states. Through it, students interested in mechanical and industrial engineerin are brought together. lts purpose is to develop in the student the initia- tive and the ability to express his thoughts. Authorities in this field are invited to address the bi-monthly meetings of the group in order to acquaint the members with some ofthe problems and developments in engineering. Last fall the A.S.M.E. decided that the students in the various branches would henceforth be considered student members of the parent society. The dues were raised, and in addition to receiving the pin of the organization, the membership card, the subscription to Mechanical Engineering, and the A.S.M.E. News, the student members were accorded the following privileges: articipation in the meetings of the parent society, opportunity to compete for cash awards, and use of both the Engineering Society's employment service and the library containing 1 75,ooo volumes. Furthermore, after graduation,a student automatically becomes a member of the SKS-.lVl.E. on payment of the initiation fee, and for the first year, is exempted from ues.

All Aeronautical Engineering Students are eligible for membership which includes the privilege of junior membership in the parent society upon graduation, a subscription to Mechanical Engineering, an A.S.M.E. winged pin, and the use of the Engineer- ing Societies' Library, in addition to copies of the papers presented at the various meetings. The membership in this division is well over 35. The officers for the year are: Mr. Robert Wolfsohn, chairman, Mr. Sal Amen- dola, treasurer and Mr. Elliot V. Mock, secretary. At the meetings, which were held semi-monthly, prominent speakers presented papers on aeronautical topics. Among the speakers were Mr. P. Johnston, Assistant Editor of Aviationg Mr. C. Taylor and Mr. George Titertin of the U. S. Navy. In addition to the regular meetings ofthe society a smoker was held at the Law- rence House last fall. Mr. Leuderitz, radio engineer of Pan American Airways, gave an interesting talk on radio and radio equipment in long scheduled flights, similar to those on the Pan American runs. The organization gave its support to the Quadrangle, the campus engineering publication.

Wit, THE VIOLET Jfifv Civil Engineering Carnp EACH year, during the month of June, the Junior class of the Civil Engineering group leaves for a place where it can put into practice the theory learned during the preceding school year. For the past three years the camp has been situated at Greenhill, near Port Jervis, New York. Previous to this it had been located in different parts of Connecticut and Massachusetts. For the juniors, the camp is of one month's duration during which time the students survey, plot, and map the topography of the land. The o tional three-week course for the senior engineerin students consists of the study oi? road surveying and plotting, while the two-weeg course for the non-civil engineering students deals with the study and practice of elementary surveying. The camp is under the direction of Professor Dou las Trowbridge. He is assisted in the technical work by Messrs. Yasivines and Murgichian. The social and athletic activities of the camp are arranged by Mr. Dan Ecker of the Heights branch of the Y. M. C. A. Under his guidance the camp formed a baseball team which played several games with neighboring nines. Although the baseball record was not good, the men succeeded in obtaining a good deal of pleasure in the sport. just before the camp was dismissed Professor Trowbridge awarded prizes to the two most popular men in camp, Arthur Peterson and jack Hobbs. They, as well as the other students, will probably always remember and appreciate the value of this phase of their undergraduate work. ...Q 300 3..- 093, THE VIOLET Jim The Y. M. C. A. MONG the most active organizations at University Heights is the Y. M. C. A. Established by the students and faculty in 189 , it has rapidly developed into a complex organization embracing man diversifieds activities. The administrative body is an advisory board, composed oiy faculty members, alumni and two outstandf ing undergraduates of the "Y" Council. Other integral parts of the organization are the Executive Committee and the "Y" Council. The student association is affiliated with the National Council of Student Y. M. C. A.'s and the World Chris- tian Student Association. The "Y" is noteworthy for its attempt to help each student meet his individual problem. Freshman Camp, sponsored by the "Y", helps to orient and acclimate the incoming students so that they may be prepared to meet the difiiculties of the first year. This work is continued through the year, for the "Y" secures leaders, prominent in various fields, to address the first year men on the many aspects of college life. The organization is to be especially commended for its foresight and broadfmindedness in nurturing the Student Discussion Group--a handful at its inci ient meetigg lasiyearla and now one of the most influential factors on the campus in s aping stu ent t oug t. The "YH aids students to obtain art-time work by means of its Employment Bureau. A secretary with the aid of? several assistants solicits positions from the leading organizations in the city. Through the Residence Bureau, the best rooms in the vicinity of the campus are thoroughly investigated and approved under con- tract between the renter and the University. The Lawrence House, open to all students, is always available for meetings, forums and recreation. The student officers for the current year are: Roger Squire, president, Robert W.

Qi?-K9 THE VIOLET Jig The Menorah Society HE HEIGHTS MENGRAH SOCIETY, a chapter of the Intercollegiate Menorah Association, is an organization which was founded for the purpose of promoting jewish culture and ideals by serving as a medium of expression for college students. The society is open to all students on the campus, and all points of View presented at its discussion are welcomed, while none are imposed upon its members. Menorah believes that college students should prepare themselves for intelligent participation in the solution of jewish problems, and that the stud of Jewish thought and exper- ience is an integral part of University education and, fundamentally contributes to modern social adjustments. In order to achieve its aims, the Menorah Society holds weekly Wednesday noon meetings in addition to its monthly evening meeting at the Hebrew Institute of University Heights of which Dr. Simon G. Kramer, religious adviser of Menorah, is Rabbi. The feature of these evening meetings is an address by a prominent speaker. Without doubt the most successful was the one at which Mr. Ruben Gordon, in an address, "Youth and the Communal Colonies in Palestine," gave an account of the return of the jews to their homeland. This ear several innovations were introduced into the activities of Menorah. These incllude the organization of a class in jewish History, and the society's participaf tion in the intramural athletic program at University Heights. A touch of social activity was added by means of a Menorah dance held in March at the Lawrence House. Invitations to this were sent to all Menorah societies of the city. The ofhcers are: Robert D. Bloom, president, Sidney Ficrst, vice-president, Arthur Argintineau, recording secretary, Harold Mayer, corresponding secretary, and Sidney Rock, treasurer. The members are: R. Effron, B. Federman, Finger, E. Greenberg, N. Kaplan, H. Landsman, E. Lipsom, T. Mass, H. Mayer, S. Reicher, B. Robinson, I. Rogovin, and A. Williams. ...4 302 5... Wit, THE VIOLET diff The Newman Club HE NEWMAN CLUB of the Heights is an organization of the Catholic students on the campus. The society is designed as a medium of both religious and social activities. The chief function ofthe Newman Club is to foster the study and appreciation of Catholic ideals, and to serve as a means of expression for Catholic students. It not only cements these Catholic students of the campus into one group, but also unites them with those of the other metropolitan campuses. This closer association is brought about by weekly meetings at the Heights, at which interesting discussions are carried on by both laymen and priests, and by dances and other social gatherings. The meetings are open to all students. The dances are the primar means of uniting the clubs of the colleges. Moreover, the group is a member ofythe New York Province and the National Federation of College Catholic Clubs, and, as such, is privileged to use the club house of the New York Province at 635 West 115th Street. The club house contains a chapel, library, and numerous other reception and diversion rooms. It also serves as a common meeting place for all the Catholic societies in the city. The past year, the most successful in the history of the Newman Club, was marked by an intensive drive for members. The social season was topped by a dance held in the Gym at the Heights on November 5, 1932. The affair was at- tended by all the Newman Clubs in the vicinity. The club's faculty adviser is Dr. Taylor and the chaplain is the Reverend Father Hayes, who replaced the Reverend Father O'Brien during the year. The undergraduate oflicers for the past year were: Ameodo A. Giallorenzi, president, Charles J. Britz, vice-president, john J. Sheridan, secretary, and Robert D. Barry, treasurer. ...4 303 5... 2 'Yip THE VIOLET Jig The German Society N March, 1929, a group of students in Professor Brenneclce's German course im- pressed and, no doubt, influenced by his instruction, founded the Deutscher 'Uerein under the leadership of Arthur Kreidman for the further study of German language and literature. In two weeks the club was completely organized and Hbegann seine Tatigkeit, um tiefer in deutsches Leben und deutscher Kultur einzudringenf' Mr. Harold Lenz, an alumnus of the Heights and an instructor in German, served as faculty adviser, a position he still holds. The society has been es ecially active this year. Two comedies were produced on December 9th and iorll in the Little Theater. One, a grotesque on Goethe and a parody on professors, dealt with the spirit of Goethe appearing before a "Gym- nasium" student and offering to take the latter's Goethe examination. Confronted with an array of the most minute questions regarding his own life and works, Goethe was unable to answer them to the satisfaction of the professor and, consequently, failed. Blau concerned itself with a young German artist returned from Italy, who visits his old friend, a lawyer. The success of these plays may be inferred by the comment made upon them by the Daily News: "The blue ribbon of amateur plays may fairly be awarded to the Deutscher Uerei-fr for the two one-act plays pre- sented on the 9th and 1oth." In addition to the lays, the society had the two-fold leasure of hearing Max Monror render one of his famous dramatizations, and Progzssor Nordmeyer discuss the present political situation in Germany. The officers arc: H. Orcnstein, presidentg E. A. Stone, secretary. The members are: W. Chainsky, A. Charlton, M. Glasser, A. Goldstein, B. Harris, B. Hoenigmann, M. Potkin, I. Rat- chick, G.

HE ITALICA CULTURAL SOCIETY owes its origin to the ltalica Association of America, an organization which fosters interest in Italian life, thought, and customs as reflected in past and contem orary literature. The faculty is represented by Mr. Fales, the club's chief adviser andplecturer. This year the society was es ecially honored by a vivid descriptive talk on Italy given by Dean Bouton who had, recently returned from Europe. At the following meeting, two weeks later, Mr. Fales gave a lecture on Dante, stressing the more personal element in the reat oet's life. During the second semester, Professor C. T. Schwarze, head oigthe Civil Engineering Department, resented a fanciful dissertation on the history of architecture. Other members of tlie faculty have pre- sented short talks of a similar nature. All undergraduates are invited to attend, the onl prerequisite being an interest in Italian culture and a willingness to participate in the cfiscussions. The actual benefit of the ltalica Cultural Society to the University is apparent materially as well as culturally. With the dues paid by members since the incep- tion of the society, the organization has added to the artistic and literary possessions of the school by presenting to it a bust of Dante which now looks down from the niche above the door of Language Hall. The society also donated a number of volguinlpsdof the Encyclopaedia Italiana, the most complete work of its kind to be u is e . p The annual dance held by the society, in some instances together with the Cercle Frangais, has aided greatly in furthering social contacts.

Throughout the years of growtli the society has been exceedingly fortunate in having as faculty adviser Professor Henri Cesar Olinger, who has encouraged the club and organized several pleasant meetings. The officers of the Cercle Francais for the current year were elected at the last meeting of the society in 1932. Ovid Rose, who was chosen president for the fol- lowing year, was the logical choice for this position inasmuch as he had previously spent two years in Switzerland. Edward Ziemba is vice-president, and Robert Holland is secretary. The urpose of the French Club is to furnish an informal meeting place where interestedi students can become conversant with modern French, all meetings being conducted in that language. The club attempts to instill in its members a knowledge and appreciation of French life, customs, literature, and culture. The meetings are of a very informal nature, allowing for much freedom among the members. Faculty representatives, often present, speak before the organization in French. At the first meeting, Professor Heaton described his experiences in Europe, stressing particu- larly Southeastern France. He discussed the people and customs of Lyons, Mar- seilles, Nice, and Monte Carlo. New members were inducted into the society during the first few meetings by means of a newl devised procedure. The candidates came prepared to give a short speech, but hartily found themselves able to wade through to the end. Instead, t ey were heckled from the Hoot with irrelevant questions, and finished so confused that they hardly knew what they were talking about, The activities of the Cercle Frangais are not confined to regular meetings. The club often goes en masse to see French moving pictures. It also has an annual informal luncheon. The officers are: Professor H. C. Olinger, faculty adviser, Ovid Rose, president, and R. Holland secretary. The members arc: A. Argintineau, B. Baruch, L. Beck, M. Benson, A. Breeker, J. Dashiff, E. Deckinger, C. de Zafra, S. Fierst, H. Frankel, 1. Goldner, W. Gottfried, F. Guran, H.

A-4 306 yu- W2-to THE VIOLET Jfif' The Bristol Pre-Medical Society URING the last decade there has been a marked increase in the number of students at University College who are preparing themselves for the study of medicine. From this influx sprang the desire for a pre-professional organization to bind together these students of similar purpose. In February, 1930, a group of Freshmen with characteristic enthusiasm and energy formed a "New York University Medical Society." The name has since been changed to the Bristol Pre-Medical Society in honor of the late Charles Lawrence Bristol, '83, Professor Emeritus of Biology at University College. The faculty has cooperated, and many well known instructors have given inter- esting talks in their special fields. The society numbers among its honorary members Doctors Hall, Lindwall, Sandstrom, Max, and Willey. In the past year Dr. Sand- strom acted as faculty adviser and proposed many valuable suggestions. The society serves a double purpose. It acquaints the students with the entrance requirements and the outstanding features of various medical colleges, and it attempts to further the interests of the student in the more fundamental phases of medicine. Interesting sidelights in chemistry, biology, and psychology are presented. Occa- sional visits to hospitals in the metropolitan area are undertaken in order to bring the member in closer contact with such institutions. Members are encouraged to interest themselves in a particular subject and to present their studies in short talks at the regular tri-monthly meetings. One of these is an evening session at which a faculty member or a physician is the speaker. The officers are: Dr. C. J. Sandstrom, faculty adviser, Louis Hirsch, president, J.

RIFLE CLUB, organized in 1930, was consolidated last year with a newly-established Pistol Club to form the R. O. T. C. Rilie and Pistol Club. Membership in the organization is open to any student enrolled in the basic or advanced courses in Military Science. Under the guidance and assistance of Cap- tain Robert R. Bell, U. S. Army, who is pistol coach, and of Sergeant Fred Wallace, U. S. Army, coach of the Varsity Rifle Squad, a keen interest in pistol and rifle marlcsmanship has been stimulated among the cadets of the R. O. T. C. The society has also sponsored a rifle team which has participated in intercollegiate competition under the name of the "New York University Rifle Club." In 1931, this team placed fourteenth in the Eastern section of the Hearst Trophy Match. Last year, the club won thirty out of thirty-four matches. It finished the season by winning the Intercollegiate Championship of the Second Corps Area. The season of 19 2-19 3 saw the R. O. T. C. Rifle Team competing in fort -six postal matches, the Second? Corps Area Matches and the Annual William Rancilolph Hearst Trophy Match. Of the fortyfsix postal matches, thirty-nine were won and seven lost. In the Second Corps Area Matches, the N. Y. U. Nimrods placed second to Cornell University. Both institutions are to represent the Second Corps Area in the National Intercollegiate Matches which are to take place in july. For the first time in the history of rifle teams at New York University the R. O. T. C. Nimrods won the National Hearst Trophy Championship,Senior Divi- sion, for 1933. The five-man Violet team, one of 174 senior teams entered in the matches, won with a score of 9 8 out of a possible 1ooo points. At the same time, the fusileers won the Eastern Section Championship with the same score of 948. Cornell was second with 938, and Carnegie Tech was third with 93 .

'93, THE VIOLET elif' Skull and Bones HE SOPHOMORE VIGILANCE COMMITTEE, SKULL AND BONES, was organized in the fall of 1928 with the purpose of restraining the natural skittishness of the Freshman Class and teaching the neophytes the difference between the college man as he really is and the Burt L. Standish conception of the typical Freshman. All of which simply means the enforcement of the Freshman rules. Corporal punishment of an amusing character is administered as a means of persuad- ing stubborn Freshmen to observe the time-honored customs of the campus. Any infringement of the duties of the society is discouraged by the group in its usual manner, the result of the society's activity being a unifying force within the Sopho- more class. This unifying force is carried 'over to the Freshmen. Although some of the actions of the group seem to be directed against the Freshmen, the primary pur ose of the society is to aid them. It is but another case of, 'lit hurts me more tfian it does you." The society attempts to build up and maintain class spirit among the incoming freshmen, even though the Sophomores frequently experience physical suffering in doing so. The first year men, in new surroundin s, tend to form small groups of- ten directed against one another. It is the aim oigSlcull and Bones to organize the class and combine these individual factions into a complete unit. The officers are: A. Limouze, president, A. Lansing, secretary, V. Puhalslcy, vice-president, and E. Brinkmayer, sergeant-at-arms. The members are: Antonelli, B. Bauman, H. Bethell, H. Blume, Cantina, F. Coleman, R. Colvin, B. Cox, Dashiff, E. Diehl, G. Dyson, H.

The Monroe Alumni Club boasts of more than a mere aura of fellowship, for many of the members are active and prominent in college affairs. journalists, athletes, orators, and exceptional students have graced the society's membership roster. During last season's special activities the society held a smoker at the Lawrence House ar which well-known radio performers and popular Monroe teachers were present. A few dances were successfully sponsored, and a huge homecoming day rogram was arranged and carried out at james Monroe High School. Over six hundred and fifty graduates returned to their Alma Mater and the success of that affair has made it an annual feature. The big day for Monroe Alumni is, tradi- tionally, one week before Christmas. Through the agency of the Monroe Alumni Club the student is given an oppor- tunit to mingle with his classmates. The club sponsors dances and other functions which serve to unite Monrovians at N. Y. U. with those at other institutions. Mem' bers correspond with similar Monroe Societies at Cornell, Ohio, Alabama, Columbia, and City College. The N. Y. U.

SA, THE v1oLET ,ga The Eucleian Literary Society HE EUCLEIAN LITERARY SOCIETY is as old as the University itself, being founded in 1832 at the downtown branch ofthe University. The Society rapidly rose to a place of prominence, and assumed an important osition in the history and development ofthe University. By 1835 the society had reached so important a place that it was able to have its own hall in the new University Building at Washington Square. From the time of its inception, the rolls of the Society have included many famous men some of whom are: Daniel Webster, Edward Everett, Andrew Jackson, William Harrison, John Quincy Adams, and Martin Van Buren, all of whom have been noted for their service to their country. The records of the Society are of great historical importance to the University, and these documents are preserved in the archives of the ,University Library. The Eucleian Society was responsible for starting the predecessor of the present Medley as a literary magazine. The Society at one time also published the Geyser. Each Spring the Society conducts the annual Eucleian Public Speaking Contest for Freshmen, in collaboration with the Public Speaking Department. The contest this year was a great success, and hrst prize was won by Mr. Silvers. The Eucleian Library of selected books has also been formed, and is under the supervision ofthe University Library. The officers are: Charles l. McAllister, president, Charles Lco Gebhardt, jr., vice-presidentg Richard R. Winters, secretary, Roger W. Elliot, treasurer, Walter Durr, Censorg john F.

It also had another purpose in attempting to modify the tradition of secrecy which had sprun up about the exist- ing honorary groups. To this end it permits the light of publicity to fall upon it and its activities. Membership is limited to sixteen men of whom fourteen shall be Seniors and two Juniors. The society also has the right to elect associate and honorar members who'enjoy all the privileges accorded to the other members except the right to vote. These members are chosen on the basis of service rendered the University, the choice being in no way restricted to men belonging to fraternities or other groups. The elections are controlled in such a manner as to preserve an equal balance among the sectarian groups represented on the campus. This year the society has been more active than it has been in years past. It has attempted to establish for itself a more definite function than it has had previously. To this end, the members voted to adopt the procedure of seein visiting teams off the campus. Teams are welcomed to the campus and it was fellt that a fitting es- ture should be made to those athletes who were leaving, whether they be bowedg by the weight of defeat or elevated by the joy of victory. This is surely a noble and worthy reason for the existence of Phoenix. The officers arc: R. Squire, president, J. Adler, vice-president, A. Brower, secretary. Senior members: R. Allison, J. Borkin, A. Caputo, P. Cole, J. Dalton, Dr Fegley, S. Freidberg, M. Rez- nick, J. Schayc, J. Snyder, and B. Swaybill. Associate: G. Balter. junior members: R. Dubrowin, and W. Lunebcrg. ...Q 312 5... WH, THE VIOLET 51' University College Union N the early part of this year, the Student Council recognized a new campus organ- ization-the University College Union. Although its constitution provides for participation in literary, oratorical, and debating activities, the Union is principally devoted to certain aspects of literature. Its policy, for the present at least, was well summed up by Mr. Shapiro in his report of the Executive Committee: "to interest itself in literature not as an isolated phenomenon, but as an entity extremely pertinent to the varied aspects of modern life." Nlembership is at present limited to juniors and Seniors, and a three-fourths assenting vote is requisite for admission. Its meetings are held twice a month: on the first Friday at four o'clock in the afternoon, when members of the club speak, and on the third Wednesday at seven-thirty in the evening, when faculty members are invited to address the group. The present oilicers are Joseph M. Lobel, chancellor, Hillel B. Gorson, vice-chancellor, Robert D. Bloom, secretary-treasurer, and Robert Tilove, historian. In addition, there has been appointed an executive committee to arrange programs and investigate and report on applications for mem- bership. This committee is composed of Solomon R. Shapiro, chairman, Myroii Krotinger, Augustus Tilove, and Edwin V. Halbmeier. ...4 313 it -vvff-1, THE VIOLET Jive The N. Y. U. Glider Club HE GLIDER CLUB was organized in the spring of 1931 for the purpose of fostering this modern sport at New York University, and to present an oppor- tunity to those students for Hying who could otherwise not afford it. Membership is open to all schools of N. Y. U., and the Club prides itself upon being the most inexpensive organization of its kind in the country. A charter was acquired in 1931, and the club represents tl1e student body in national gliding circles. The club has two gliders, one in active service as a primary trainer, the other being rigged for more advanced Hying. The club has now two excellent flying fields near' Peekskill and will soon have a hangar in which to house its machines. Prac- tically all ofthe club's funds have been raised by members, and at present constitute a sum exceeding five hundred dollars. The club has to thank the Aeronautical and Creology Departments for their valuable assistance and encouragement. The appealing nature ofthe club's activities accounts in part for the club's success- Nearly all members have passed the elementary stage of instruction, and many in- teresting problems develop as they progress in their mastery of the sport. Night flying has provided many exciting moments. Certain of the members have estab- lished characteristic reputations. Alfred Burger excels in endurance, John Becker in distance, and Franklin Joseph in altitude. With the advent of the new, lighter glider, it is expected that results will be even more gratifying. A pictorial record is being kept of the club's evolution, which may some day fur- nish a very interesting chronicle of the establishment of a new sport at New York University. The ollicers are: A. Graliam, president, Sheridan, vice-president and secretary, W. Wzingc, treasurer, and E. Stout, instructor. The members are: Becker, A. Burger, W. Graff, F. joseph, j. Mnravelas, R. McGuire, D. Scott, H. Harris, H. Sward, and H. Zap. ...4 314 5... My THE VIOLET Jif' g The Inter-Faith Council OR many years the University Y. M. C. A. at the Heights carried on a strong inter-religious program and hel ed in the organization of the other religious groups on the campus. After severa attempts an Inter-Faith Council was organized and recognized by the Heights Student Council as the inter-religious operating agency, even though the "Y" itself carried on its traditional inter-religious program. The organization ofthe Council did not have in mind any form of amalgamation ofthe three major organizations, namely, the Nlenorah Society, the Newman Club and the "Y" at University Heights, representing, in general, Jewish, Roman Catholic and Protestant students. The idea expressed by the Council was that at the present time there is great need of a conference agency to bring together the major religious groups on the campus, in order to avoid definite conflicts of policies at various times, and to create a more tolerant religious attitude and to eliminate, if possible, those unfortunate traditional barriers which are segregating student groups. The main activities contemplated by the Council are those of common interest to all three constituents, for example: an interchange of ideas through discussions, open forums, lectures, and the like, on such matters as the contribution of religion to the total life ofthe members both in the University and out of it, the place of religion in general culture and education, the danger of materialism, public corruption, and private immorality to all religion. The officers are: Dan H. Ecker, adviser and executive secretary, Raphael Dubrowin, recording secretary, Dr. Edmund Woodriman, treasurer. The members are: representing the Menorrllr Society-R. Bloom and S. Rock, representing the Newman Club'-A. Gaillorenzi and Sheridan, representing the Y. JW. C. A.-R. Squire, R, Dubrowin, and R. Leonard. ...-4 315 5... vii, THE VIOLET Jie- The Hill Historical Society HE HILL HISTORICAL SOCIETY is a newcomer among the group of organ- izations at University Heights. It was hrst organized by fourteen charter mem' bers in November, 1932, and was temporarily called The History Club. The club held several organization meetings at which officers were elected, a constitution adopted, a permanent name decided upon, new members inducted, committees ap- pointed, and the organization put into working order. It was unanimously decided by the organization to adopt the name ofthe Hill Historical Society in honor of the late Professor Huntington Hill. Daniel Dornfeld, the temporary chairman, was chosen president, while Robert Holland and Lawrence Kashowitz were unanimously elected vice-president and secretary res ectively. The society chose as its faculty adviser, Professor Lounsbury, and Prollejssor Park was chosen as assistant faculty adviser. The constitution adopted provided that those students were eligible for admit- tance into the society who had previously completed one year of history and were taking, or had taken, a second ear of history at the time of their induction. The society grew very rapidly, and ager one month's time, the membership had expanded to approximatel forty. The society then elected as honorary members, Mrs. Hunt' in ton Hill, wife of the late Professor Huntington Hill, and all the faculty members ofgthe History and Political Science Departments. The society holds business meetings in Philosophy Hall 13 on Thursdays at 11 :3o o'clock, and its monthly meetings for the reading of original papers, on the second Wednesday of each month, in the Lawrence House, at three o'clock. A few papers have already been presented by S. Gordon, Burris, and R. Holland. The olhcers of the organization are: D. Dornfeld, president, R. Holland, vice-president, L. Kashowitz, secretary. Members: L. Beck, J. Burris, J. Cornheld, L. David, L. Dubin, M. Fischer, S. Gordon, H. Cvorson, S. Guran, E. Kaylin, M. Kroll, M. Krotinger, H. Lapman, A. Mascara, H. Nevin, N. Olclbaum, S.

WR, THE VIOLET .-EG' The Morse Physics Society ,, d...,.i.v-...N T. i -f --. - Q w -' ' x, . . . x ' :au HE MORSE PHYSICS SOCIETY was founded for the purpose of creating a greater interest in mathematics and physics, and for providing a place where students and faculty could convene and discuss various topics relating to their work. The society was founded two years ago, and since then has grown very rapidly. It now includes many students who are taking advanced physics or mathematics courses. The re uirements for admission are a total of nine oints of mathematics or eight points off physics plus a recommendation from one ofp the instructors of the mathematics or physics department. The societ has been especially active this year because of the increasing number of students W o are taking advanced courses in mathematics and physics. At the first meeting of the year a pa er on "l'lyperbolic Functionsl' was read by the presi- dent, Sidney Glusman. At tlie next meeting Martin Gerson delivered a lecture on "The Electron." After this came a talk by the vice-president, Davis, on "Fourier's Series." Mr. Davis was assisted in this speech by Professor Cox, administrative chairman of the Physics Department. Following Mr. Davis' lecture was a discus- sion by Mr. Birnbaum on "The Psychology of Sound." At the next meeting Langer spoke on L'The Zeeman Effect," followed by A. Spectorsky on "The Doppler Effect." gt ishseen that there were a great many interesting topics presented with many more ort coming. Professor Cox has consented to act as faculty adviser to the society, and it is ex- pected that under his guidance the society will stride forward very rapidly. The officers arc: Sidney Crlusman, president, J. Davis, vice-presidency A. Spectorsky, secretaryg and S. Langer, treasurer. The members are: Alterman, Birnbaum, Ehrlich, Gerson, M.

Munkelt, DeBevoise, and Gaydell, of the Sterling Engraving Company, were unceasing in their efforts to lighten the burden of the editors in the completion of this book, Mr. Gaydell was especially gracious in his willingness to consult with the editors on the design for the cover seal. Mr. Gershaw, Mrs. Lacques, and Mr. Friedman, of the Arthur Studios, remained constant in their desire to work with the staff and to make this year's effort a worthy one. Of those intimately connected with New York University, Mr. George Shiebler, of the Bureau of Public Information, Miss Dorothy Keon, Secretary to Dr. Gas- paritsch, Miss McNair, Secretary to the Engineering Faculty, and, obviously, our two Faculty Advisers, Mr. Howell and Dt. Gasparitsch, were invaluable in their services rendered to the editors. Unfortunately, 'Uiolet tradition admits of no freshmen on the staff. However, Charles Giarratana, Richard Briefer, and Abraham Sackler, all of the class of 1936, did their share together with the upperclassmen of the board. The editors also wish to acknowledge the work of Harold Phillips of the class of 1935, and to apologize for having inadvertently omitted his name from the staff ofthe 1933 Uiolet. ...4 355 5...
