NEW, MORE DEMOCRATIC sysTem oT sTudenT governmenT came inTo being aT
WashingTon Sguare College in The Fall oT l935. ln place oT The old, bicameral
organizaTion oT a STudenT ATTairs CommiTTee and a STudenT Council, There was sub-
sTiTuTed a STudenT Council, whose TwenTy-six sTudenT members alone had The righT To
voTe on rules and regulaTions governing The sphere oT sTudenT acTiviTies.
ln addiTion To The TwenTy-six sTudenT members, represenTing various school acTiviTies,
The Council included Three TaculTy members appoinTed by The Dean. These TaculTy mem-
bers could acT only in an advisory capaciTy. Under The previous sysTem oT sTudenT
governmenT, a diTTerenTly organized STudenT Council shared power over sTudenT acTi-
viTies wiTh an auTocraTic STudenT ATTairs CommiTTee consisTing oT members oT The Ta-

posT oT chairman oT This commiTTee was replaced, under The new regime, wiTh The
oTTice oT Chairman oT STudenT ATTairs, occupied by Dr. l-l. l-larold AxworThy .
Une oT The TirsT acTs oT The newly organized Council was To esTablish, by means oT a
resoluTion, sTudenT acTiviTies as a co-curricular raTher Than as an exTra-curricular phase
oT sTudenT liTe. A TorTnighT laTer, The body voTed To eliminaTe Two clauses oT The
VV.S.C. ConsTiTuTion which gave The Dean power To veTo any acT oT The Council or
To amend The ConsTiTuTion, if he desired. Dean Loomis voiced approval oT The Coun-
cil's acTion, declaring ThaT "The new STudenT ConsTiTuTion was admiTTedly wriTTen by
a commiTTee which was undemocraTically chosen and l have a Tirm belieT in The abiliTy
oT The Council To cope wiTh iTs various problems successTully." ln eliminaTing These
clauses, The Council overloolqed The TacT oT The Deans being able, aT The drop oT a
resoluTion, To abolish, noT only any acT oT The body, buT The Council iTselT.
A weelr laTer, ToI!owEng upon a sTorm oT sTaTemenTs, proTesTs, and ediTorials, The Coun-

cil demanded, by a narrow margin, an invesTigaTion oT charges made by Sigma, men's
honorary socieTy. The charges, condemning The "peTTy poliTics" oT The Loomis regime,
had been made public less Than a week beTore The Council eliminaTed Dean Loomis'
veTo over iTs acTions. No denial oT The charges had been issued up To The Time oT The
Councills acTion. The maTTer was Tinally dropped, however, on Sigma's own iniTiaTive.
STill in The invesTigaTing mood, The Council decided, early in December, To probe The
W.S.C. library. The library, iT was disclosed, sulTered Trom inadeguaTe space TaciliTies.

provocaTion Tor The invesTigaTion, Tor which a library commiTTee, headed by Lee Kanner,

The prices oT baslceTball games in The l-leighTs gymnasium Trom 25 To 40 cenTs plus an

Junior Advisory Committee
ELECTED each year Trom The Junior Class by Dean DoroThy lvlcSparran Arnold,
was a group oT ouTsTanding women. Their Task was To serve as advisers To The

l-liTler, which ended in a draw. DespiTe The BulleTin, The
UniTed STaTes decided To enTer The German Qlympics.
The work oT The BulleTin was carried on in a small ohfice in
The Press Annex, a commodious room which laclced only
space, air, and lighT To malce iT The ideal workshop. l-lciw-
ever, The second semesTer saw The paper guarTered in The
SouTh Building in an oTTice boasTing Two exposures and Three TypewriTers. The Manage
ing Board, exhibiTing an unmanly class-consciousness, had a separaTe oTTice adioining.
The anTics oT one Edwin CoopersmiTh, a sixTeen year old Treshman aT The Square, pro-
vided The BulleTin wiTh an engrossing series oT human inTeresT sTories. Young Cooper-
smiTh, iT will be remembered, sTarTed ouT Tor The Sguare one morning To regisTer as

The peace rally, and iTs coverage did much To aid
NOT unmindTul OT iTs TuncTion as a publiciTy Organ,
The BulleTin exTensively heralded The annual Fall

ediTor, who complained in a TronT-page ediTorial
ThaT "couples Tound iT diTTiculT To dance To The

indiscriminaTely." To which Chairman Joe AnTo-
now replied, in eTTecT, are you calling me a crook?
This, apparenTly, was nOT inTended, and in The nexT
issue, The ediTOrs were properly conciliaTory.
PoeTry made iTs circumspecT enTrance inTo The
pages OT The BulleTin, sTealing inTo The Minor Key
columns, as David D. Levine and a BulleTin sTaTT
member exchanged rhymed unpleasanTries. The
newspaper's readers remained calm ThroughouT.
On The whole, Though, The "ln a Minor Key" TeaTure
appeared less TreguenTly Than was expecTed, and
TheaTrical criTicism Took iTs place. l-lere The ediTOrs

warTz Tound one respecTable drama, "Remember

characTer as "moving wiTh The swiTTness oT liTe, The
roar oT a cannon and The Tire oT an EguaTor sun."
This versaTile characTer, we may reporT, was Charles
Parnell, The lrish RevoluTionisT, played by George
Curzon in The play Warnell."
The Forum column swelled To mammouTh propor-
Tions during The college year, wiTh The STudenT
League Tor lndusTrial Democracy and The lNlaTional

unTil lperhaps To save The BulleTin spacel They
ioined Torces in The American STudenT Union which
included all liberal groups.
WiTh The peace rally successTully concluded The
ediTors opened a "SaTe-Driving" campaign, wiTh
pledges and posTers abouT The school. The pledges
were signed by Three Thousand sTudenTs in a solemn
ceremony inTerrupTed only by The voice oT one
sage inquiring, "Are we To sTand over The BMT
moTormen and insisT ThaT They drive careTully7"
LaTe in The Fall semesTer, The BulleTin inTroduced
a new TeaTure, "Topics oT The Day," a Brisbanish
column oT commenT wriTTen by The ediTor and oTher
members oT The Managing Board. In sagacious
Tashion, The auThors reviewed evenTs oT The week,
commenTing and analyzing Them in brisk, iournal-

The BulleTin crossed swords wiTh The adminisTraTion on The issue oT The new

ROWING proudly, VarieTies, W.S.C. humor magazine, bursT inTo

naTion-all wiThin The shorT space oT Three years.
Under The conTinued ediTorship oT iTs Tounder, Fabian Pollachelc, Varie-

liTerary maTerial gradually being sacriTiced To malce room Tor addiTional

VarieTies occasionally was noT above liTTing maTerial wiThouT revision.
BuT, as many sTudenTs would say wryly, "lT's all in Tun." The gualiTy oT
The sTories and The humor oT The "iolces" also came in Tor Their share oT
criTicism-buT whaT humor magazine was ever consisTenTly humorous?
EdiTor Pollachelc claimed ThaT The charge ThaT VarieTies was noT even

As issue succeeded issue, iT began To be noTiced ThaT There was a plan
in The malce-up oT The series oT issues. One monTh The sTaTT would puT

noT unusual. l-lowever, in boTh Types oT issues iT was all-Too-obvious ThaT
The genius oT The ediTors and sTaTT was noT guiTe equal To The Taslc oT
being regularly humorous To The exTenT oi ThirTy pages. As high as TiTTy
percenT oT The shorT TirsT coed-second coed Type oT dialogue was
clipped and reprinTed Trom oTher sources.
ln a Tinal vain eTTorT To secure volunTary conTribuTions Trom sTudenTs who
usually eschew exTra-curricular acTiviTies, The ediTors oT The magazine
sponsored a shorT sTory conTesT. AlThough generous cash prizes were

According To The ediTors, This sTep marked The "coming oT age" oT
VarieTies, proving ThaT iT was no longer a raTher disioinTed and spon-

An exodus oT "original VarieTies men" was seen wiTh The passing lgrad-
uaTionl oT Bernard T-lershkowiTz, managing ediTor, Bernard T-lalTord, asso-
ciaTe ediTor, and Jean ShoTTen, circulaTion manager, members oT The
small group which had issued The TirsT sTruggling issue oT The magazine
in April, IQ33. They were replaced by Jerome KanTer, DoroThy Lubin, and
Mary Solomon, new recruiTs To The VarieTies ranks. Pollachek alone re-
mained and even he, in The Spring oT l936 announced his inTenTion oT
resigning aT The end oT The school year and devoTing his lasT year To more
producTive acTiviTies, namely, his classes.
MainTaining iTs repuTaTion as The only Tive cenT college humor magazine
in The counTry, VarieTies conTinued To be one oT The Tew selT-supporTing
publicaTions issued by American colleges and also succeeded in holding
several dances Tor iTs large sTaTT.
l-lowever, here Too, a "TighTening up" process was observed. Replacing
The "shock Troop" circulaTion sTaTT whose eighTy members Tormerly dis-
TribuTed The magazine in class-To-class personal soliciTaTion campaigns,
The circulaTion emphasis was shiTTed To cenTralized sales Trom sTands in
The Main and Commerce buildings. Members oT The regular sTaTT Took
over This work.
ln TacT as well as Theory, The magazine Took iTs place among The esTablished
all-school insTiTuTions, The group oT Juniors who had Tounded The publica-
Tion Three years previously gradually relinquishing Their posiTions To "new

EsTablished by The presenT Junior class, The magazine, aT maTuriTy, was
handed over To The enTire sTudenT body oT The college.

Vanderlyn, Tounder oT The organizaTion, The pledge was opposed on The
grounds ThaT iT played inTo The hands oT lVlarxisTs. Because The Ameri-

BoTh games were played on a board loolcing much lilce a checlcer board, on
which was drawn I9 lines Trom Top To boTTom, and a lilce number Trom
side To side. Blaclc and whiTe ivory "men" resembling buTTons were

AID Tl-TE demure Mr. STanTield: "Chess looks like a guieT game, l'll
admiT. There doesn'T seem To be much Tun in iT Tor specTaTors,
excepT if They happen To be experT Themselves. In This respecT,
chess as an inTercollegiaTe acTiviTy belongs To a small group which plays
wiThouT The slighTesT ThoughT oT galleries." BuT This, many people have
learned Trom passing acquainTance, is noT The same as saying chess is
played wiThouT The slighTesT ThoughT.
Meanwhile, The Chess Club sTruggled along, and very successTully Too,
wiTh ThirTy acTive members and George ChernowiTz as PresidenT, ably

The club iTselT mainTained a VarsiTy Team, composed oT The slowesT

collegiaTe acTiviTy had Two phases. l:irsT, oT course, were The meTro-
poliTan TournamenTs, which included non-collegiaTe clubs like The Marshall
Club. On The oTher hand, There was a good deal of Travelling during
which such Teams as Yale, l-larvard, UniversiTy oT Pennsylvania, PrinceTon

banded inTo a league known as The EasTern lnTercollegiaTe Chess Tourna-

PORTS! AT no Time in The hisTory oT The UniversiTy did The Teams oT New York
UniversiTy receive so much acclaim and meeT wiTh so much success as in I935-36.
Fencing, Tennis, baskerball, baseball, TooTball-combined They boosTed The name

The seniors wiTnessed The TooTballers manacled by The de-emphasis policy oT The Uni-

When The reader, as an alumnus oT long sTanding, lazily Thumbs Through The Tollowing
pages, The relaTion beTween baskeTball and TooTball may have changed and resumed

sporT, lacrosse and The crews may once more occupy a prominenT posiTion in The sporT
pages oT The ALBUM. Perhaps The punT, The cenTer Tap, The parry will have become
words oT The pasT.
The sporTs ThaT now are a Taken-Tor-granTed elemenT in The collegiaTe calendar may,
in The TuTure, appear ludicrous, may have been modiTied and perhaps have disappeared.
WhaTever The TuTure, whaTever The change, we give you The ALBUM sporTing resume.

On Thanksgiving Day, The image oT The Pasadena Rose Bowl hung over The Yankee
STadium as 80,000 Tans gaThered To see an undeTeaTed VioleT eleven baTTle Fordham.
All roads led To The STadium, all ears and eyes oT The naTion were Turned To iT.
IT had been a greaT season Tor boTh VioleT rooTers and Their Team: exuberanT alumni
and undergraduaTes Turned ouT en masse To encourage The eleven over The Rose l-Till

WiTh The UniversiTy Tacing The prospecT oT Ii++Ie more Than a repeTiTion oT The mediocre

ln This conTesT Ed SmiTh served noTice on The TooTball world ThaT he was ouT Tor All-

As an added incenTive. The year was an Olympic one, and Tor The TirsT Time in The his-

Coach I-Ioward G. Cann had a Tormidable group oT sTars oT previous campaigns Trom
which he could mold his guinTeT. From The one-deTeaT Tive oT lasT year, he had his
Team inTacT, excepT Tor CapTain Sid Gross, who was losT Through graduaTion. Cap-

Three days laTer, The l-lall oT Famers enTerTained a weak ST. Francis College Tive, and
won easily in a very slow and unenTerTaining game. 37-24. l-lowever, The conTesT was
noT as close as The score mighT have led one To believe. The sTars oT The quinTeT were
rapidly coming To lighT, wiTh CapTain RubensTein. Leonard Maidman and MilT Schul-

ATTer The ST. Francis win, The VioleTs made Their nexT appearance aT Madison Square
Garden againsT The gianT CaliTornia Tive, who were playing in New York Tor The TirsT

The New Yorkers would lose in a close one. BUT, The Bombers rose To The occasion
and, wiTh a display oT abiliTy ThaT surprised even Coach Cann, Took The CaliTornia
Redwoods over easily, 4l-26.
Leonard Maidman and Tv1il+ Schulman were The spearheads oT The VioleT aTTack. Cap-
Tain RubensTein's display was up To par, while The mighTy Klein and The lanky Teriersen
performed well. Sophomore WiTTy replaced Klein, and was acclaimed as a capable
player while Perry Geicfen and Jack Kleiner subsTiTuTed Tor Schulman and lvlaidman.
The CaliTornia vicTory broughT a shower oT praise Tor The Bombers who wenT ahead

IT was an easy Thing To go on The nexT week and run up sixTy poinTs againsT a weak
represenTaTive oT The ivy college league, PrinceTon UniversiTy. The Tigers were unable
To regisTer more Than 39 Tallies in a game ThaT was even worse Trom The specTaTors' poinT
oT view Than The DarTmouTh conTesT. The New Yorkers scored aT will and The varsiTy
played Tor only a Tew momenTs oT The game.
AT This sTage in The season, The VioleT scoring aces were RubensTein and Maidman in
The order named and WiTTy close behind. Schulman and Klein and GeTTen were Tar
behind, alThough They led in deTensive work.
WiTh The halTway mark in The courT schedule drawing near, The Third Madison Square

Coach Cann saw To iT ThaT The Ram was given a compleTe drubbing by allowing his
TirsT sTringers To play The enTire game. The resulT was a decisive deTeaT handed To The
Fordham Tive, Sl-23, wiTh The VioleT quinTeT indulging in a mad scoring spree.

DeTermined To make up Tor The one-poinT loss ThaT had been adminisTered To Them

ThroughouT The I935 halT oT The VioleT schedule, The New York UniversiTy Team dis-
played an aggressiveness The like oT which had been unequaled even by The previous
unbeaTen quinTeTs. Molded around CapTain RubensTein, Len Maidman, MilT Schulman,

The reason Tor The poor aTTendance aT baseball games was inexplicable in The I935 sea-

played in enough TighT games To aTTord amusemenT and enTerTainmenT Tor The mosT ex-

BuT These hopes were shaTTered aT The I.C.-4A meeT, when all The Team could score was
