K new sf N the death, on October 4, 1948, of Homer Andrew Watt, Professor of English and head of the Department of English, the Washington Square College lost one of its best loved and most faithful servants. Among the first to join the faculty when the college was established in 1913, he watched over and guided its growth through infancy and adolescence with unflagging energy and devotion. In the recent years of its maturity his counsel in the solution of its problems and the planning of its future was constantly demanded and unstintingly given. But while we mourn the loss of Professor Watt as scholar, administrator and educational leader, we would pay loving tribute to the man as teacher and friend. To many generations of Washington Square College students his cheerful optimism, sensitive sympathy, and broad humanity made him one to turn to for those in- tangibles that make college not a mere educational routine but a vital experience in growth of the spirit. He Was a man of great heart. The class of 1949 dedicates this ALBUM to his cherished memory. ! .vi-,,,.M-m Fall . . . and stately Square beckoned to us X f fl WW' ff We iii ,gm ' f fff,,yW,,4il,l fwfr f 312, ,Ui jf'1'?fw,e?f ff M f f , f f' f f ' 'e f M ' lf ff-i3 ,gf gg-'V -W wr' -- o v ,Q 'K' ,I , I , ,,ff,CQ,, r- few,-fv, w5j7l.,z.,,K7jiIU,,,4'l5W.-'-'MZQ Jffii -' , I, N-5: ff fr fl ,, ,f,ff.z,ewl,.,4,f gycgpqwff' ga 4 2 .. 1 f ff f . ,- 1 :ff , ,L . a f,,j:Z5ffQ, 7 wr- - -' f f-,xv " '.':hviwi'm' ,', ' 1 3, M, , ,' 1 - w w e- 1, , 0 " 2 eg-3122-4, , f-'fl ' Q12 . ,Q --,419 .I Nj,1,4, f-jg V ,4 :mg .VL ' 1 , ff- 14:4 were ' 2 ' ",-fffz , B " '47Q,,,g ffw 52 " ' ' , I ., .TL---. .

For some it means that cramming, studying and school are over. For all, it is the close of wonderful and special memories. We remember those first days in school when we wandered, bewildered, through the halls search- ing for entrances into the Brown Building, and wondering where the administration had hidden the East Building. We remember those first days of each term when we grew so accustomed to long lines in the book- store and at the registration desks C3rd floor Mainj and how we sort of missed them as the term progressed and the lines thinned out. We remember Commons with its crowded tables and loud chatter, the library where we patiently waited for our books while the minutes passed, and where we invariably disturbed the studious silence with conversation. Washington Square Park was our spring, summer, and autumn home to which we rushed, at the end of classes, to talk and, for some of us, to explain. We heard the bootblacks singing while they worked and the children screaming when the Seniors stole their swings. After four years-and less for those of us who were strong enough to brave the rigors of summer school-of hard work and play we have reached the end. But this, too, is a beginning. This is the start ofa new period in our lives. For now the paths diverge and each of us must follow his own chosen road. Yet our futures seem so hazy. Even those of us who have planned with precision cannot be too sure of the great mystery ahead. But we have, behind us, the efforts of four years. The lessons we learned, intellectually and socially, the people we met, the friends we made, are not mere memories but are something more: they represent the strength which shall support and guide us through the days to come. This is the beginning.

MacTavish, Professor Joseph W. Barlow, Professor I-l. Stanley Schwarz, and Professor Rinehart Swenson, educators who have faithfully and honorably served on the faculty of Washington Square College for thirty years. It isn't often that a person remains at the same job for three decades-and in doing so constantly gives his best to further the cause for which he works. The four men we so willingly honor are just such personalities. They came to the University at a time when expansion was just beginning-and was difficult to effect- and departments developed slowly. They watched Washington Square College grow and they grew with it-in character stature and teaching prominence. Each has become outstanding in his respective department, Professor MacTavish as Chairman of the Chemistry Department, Professor Barlow as Chairman of the Spanish Department, Professor Swenson as Chairman of the Government Department, and Professor Schwarz as one of the foremost authorities in the Romance Languages. The year 1949 marks the thirtieth anniversary at the college for the personages honored and the graduating Senior Class is proud to acknowledge a job well done. Our most fervent hope is that these men continue to work and teach and direct at Wash- ington Square College for many, many more years to come. THE DEP RT S Under the leadership of Professor Charipper the faculty of the ever popular Biology Department still found time for . research. Aided by United States grants, work was done l i on many phases of Biology including muscular activity i and tumor growth. i Profefmr Claarippeff pAg5ic5 A Although they continued to teach Newton and Galileo, the members of the Physics department furthered scientific knowledge with work on cosmic rays and micro-waves. Prof. Carel van der Merwe coordinated and integrated the overall departmental activities. Prafermr ww der Me1'zue i 24 C emiri fry Recently reorganized with Professor Vance at the helm, the Chemistry Department carried on extensive research on new drugs, such as pressor-amines and estrogenic sub- stances. Current enrollment exceeds 2,000 in all sections of the department. P10 :ffm Vance 80AIgg The search for oil and atomic materials and the expansion of the government's program of conservation has increased the need for geologists. The Geology Department under the guidance of Professor Brooks Ellis, is now looking forward to fulfilling this demand. Starting next year, the department will offer a full graduate program. Pro enrol Ellir that Since the death of Professor Watt, the English Department is being guided by a committee of professors under the supervision of Dean Thomas Pollock. The department, one of the largest in WSC, has gained tremendous popularity with new courses in magazine Writing. Pfafeuor Holzlwecbt jI"eI'lCA Enrollment in the French Department has reached its high- est point in years-1150 embryonic Frenchmen. Professor Frederic Ernst made some temporary substitutions in the faculty this year, since some members Went to France to polish up their style. Profexfar Ernst 6l"l'l'l 6Ll'l, Headed by Professor Ernst Rose, the German Department offered an excellent curriculum to students of German with courses in scientific German, literature, and theme Writing. Professors Pekary and Rabe recently celebrated their 25th year of teaching at NYU. Proferror Rare 26 500664 Under the able supervision of Professor Arleigh William- son, the Speech Department equipped students with the required asset of success, effective speech. Not only did prospective lawyers, actors, and teachers enroll here, but others who recognized the importance of speech. Pro error Willrrzmron Saanidk Keeping pace with the increased student enrollment, the Spanish Department has expanded its staff. Professor Joseph Barlow and the department, realizing the needs of the students, have offered courses in Spanish Commercial Correspondence and Oral Spanish. Pro error Barlow fagan Under the guiding hand of Professor Frederic Ernst, Chair- man of the Italian Department, it experienced one of its most successful years of undergraduate study. lts course in Italian Literature was well attended throughout the year. Pro error Ernrt 27 ufiic Interest in music by students of all curricula has grown steadily. Music majors join the WSC Chorus, Orchestra, and Mu Sigma which presented concerts here. Chairman Philip James introduced a new teaching method-a day- time course taught in a night club. ' Proferror frzmef gina .xgrfri This year, the Fine Arts Department, under temporary chairman Dean Pollock, instituted new practical courses in oil, water color and hand painting which led to an increased registration. Professor Horst Jansen will assume the chairmanship in September 1949. Dean Pollock P0 ' f 'J ' 4 K 1, -, M650 The Radio Department, under the chairmanship of Pro- fessor Emerson, prepares students for service in the field of radio production. A fundamental background of liberal culture and orientation in technical problems are inte- grated in this popular course. Proferxar' Ememon Wofion lqcfure The nation's first Motion Picture Department is currently making a film with the Board of Education on how the school serves the community. Professor Robert Gessner, department chairman, is on leave in Israel lecturing on movie techniques and production. Profeffar Germer 0UQl"l'll'l'leIfLf The faculty of the department of congresses, constitutions, and charters, under Acting Chairman Ray Harvey is a busy group. The department has instituted in the elementary courses a choice of a series of lecturers or one instructor throughout the semester. Profeffor Ha: vey conom icd Large classes are still the rule but better conditions are ex- pected soon. Innovations this year were instructor-student conferences to provide the personal touch, an Economics Book Department in the library, and a new course, "Russia and the United States." Prafesror Atkznr SMI, f0l"g - The History Department, under the supervision of Dean Alexander Baltzly, offered a Wide range of undergraduate courses. Such topics as the history of science and tech- nology and European culture Whetted the appetite of the freshman as Well as that of the history major. Prafefror Balrqly Walienaafica Our very active Mathematics Department piloted by Prof. Frederick W. john, continued its research vvork at the Institute of Mathematics and Mechanics. In addition, a government research contract was obtained for the study of the effects of electro-magnetic Waves. P10 emo: abn pigioigg Last year's favorite subject with students of WSC was Psychology. Due to its popularity the scope of the depart- ment vvas constantly increased. After a successful tvventy year tenure in office, Professor Presley Stout relinquished the department chairmanship.

Students seeing a girl busily scrubbing a sidewalk with a toothbrush, or a boy bowing and scraping before members of a fraternity he is trying to join, may wonder Why the two ever accepted a first bid. But this pledging and hazing, most familiar to the outsider who sees it in its most ludicrous moments, is a superficial aspect oi the sororities and fraternities. True, they are social organizations, but the giving oi dances and parties is not their most important function. They enable students tc make lasting friendships, to become socially at ease, and to become better citizens and members of their community.

They aid all charity drives, not only by contributions, but by active participation in whatever work is required. In accepting members of various religious faiths, and races, as the organizations do at WSC, they help to break down the artificial religious and color barriers. Their popularity, despite many attacks, attests to the validity of their Work, functions and existence in the college. Dancing war nlwezyr featured nr fmt-.rarority pezrrier.

An all-University event, it featured name bands playing to a full house and augured well for the dances to come. Starting with a dance at a prominent New York hotel, Day Org began publicizing doings at WSC. The Christmas Ball, always at the top of the Yuletide program, brought a gift package: two well-known dance bands, professional entertainment, and many famous stars for the Xmas tree. A highlight of the evening was the auctioning of donated merchandise, the proceeds going to a special fund for paraplegic veterans. Students checked their dance programs for the glides of March with two more sparkling affairs. The warmer weather took the dances to the hotel rooftops, bringing the season to its height-almost.

TUDE CO NCIL HAL ISSERMAN Prefidenr MEL KRANT A greater participation in student elections and club activities, and a rebirth of school spirit marked a successful year for student government at WSC. Student Council dealt efiiciently with problems of student life, and spon- sored a charity drive for the "Pour Chaplain's Pool," a system of book exchanges for Square students, a ticket dis- tribution service, and a Day Organization Research Com- mittee. Much of the credit for the Council's accomplish- ments goes to President Hal Isserman and Comptroller Buddy Kapel. Melviil Krant and Felix Rapaport ably assisted in the positions of Vice-President and Secretary respectively. f Vice-Preridenf PROFESSOR BEAUMONT, DEAN ARNOLD, PROFESSOR CASSON A drive to improve conditions in the cafeteria and library was an important part of the Student Council's activities. An attempt was also made to close off the streets surrounding the school to outside traffic. The Administrations new policy in regard to athletics was due, in small part, to the influence of the Student Council. No compilation of Council activities would be complete without mention of the Social Committee under the chair- manship of Mario D'Amico.

Through the din of smoke, typewriter claclcing, and general bedlam, the NYU publications managed to steer through to the deadline no matter the cost and confusion. Printer's-ink-in-the-blood was the chronic condition enabling the magazine and newspaper stafs to come through, pages intact. But for all the toil and trouble there was an eager audience waiting for the results of these literary endeavors, and the presses rolled on.

Activities were enthusiastic and varied, ranging from contemplation of the classics to viewing the antics of marionettes, from scientinc excursions to picnic outings. Trips, lectures, and socials vvere the order of the day, and those NYUers who did not rush foolishly to Sixth Avenue to burrow themselves underground discovered that this was an order it was a pleasure to fill. Whether it was to see a movie, hear a speaker or just get together, the club meet- ings added another highlight to a complete school ex- perience. Under the guiding hands of Professor Monges and Dick Coscarelli, advisor and club president re- spectively, the Italian Club enjoyed a very suc- cessful season. Besides the serious job of tutoring, the club found time to sponsor movies, hold in- teresting cultural programs, and organize many social events. As a leading member of the Metro- politan Federation of Italian Clubs, the annual dance was held at Columbia University in No- vember. ITALIAN CLUB EL CENTRO HISPANO One of the most active of the language clubs at WSC, El Centro Hispano fully achieved its cul- tural and social purposes. Highlights of the year included the Scholarship Fund Ball, the Christ- mas Fiesta, and conversation classes. The club was noted for its colorful and most enjoyable affairs held monthly in the Green Room. Mar- garita Gardon was President of the group. GERMAN CLUB The German Club, more properly called "Der Deutsch Verein," was very active culturally and socially during the past year. President Laurence Marder led the group on hikes, to a German movie, and to a play. The group also sponsored tutorial sessions. Four of its members visited Germany bringing back color slides and many interesting takes, The event of the season was the Christmas party in the Green Room. 64 IRC With President Mel Krant as chief cosmologist, IRC aimed at promoting understanding of na- tional groups vvith the view tovvard showing their integration in one World. In student forums, delegate panels to other colleges, and lectures featuring top speakers, current problems were discussed along ethnic and political lines. But members also made sure to take time off from the burden of this cruel world to attend the many club parties and socials. In keeping with their aim to protest violations of civil liberties and to further the "social and economic Welfare of all, " members of the Paragon society attempted to understand the valuable contributions which all minority groups have made to American culture. Adviser Mr. Olson and President Rudolph Walker guided the group in accomplishing this "through the media of forums, lectures, parties, and other social func- tions." CLASSICS CLUB PARAGO Under the leadership of its President, Charles Cusick, the Classics Club tried to familiarize its student members with the various aspects of classical antiquity. Prominent lecturers discussed everything from archeological discoveries to the interpretation of Aristotle's Writings. To prove that its members Were not living entirely in the past, a successful social terminated the year's activities. Under the leadership of Elliot Berg, the members of the Economics Club verbally tackled many of the economic troubles of the world today. Lectures, debates, and forums were dedicated to the serious consideration of problems of im- mediate concern and interest. Student participa- tion in these discussions was increased over the year as more incipient economists offered their suggestions for "better economic planning." GOVER MENT CLUB Gccupied with making tomorrow's citizens bet- ter, the Government Club featured debates by prominent speakers on political issues, on re- ligion and government, education and govern- ment, and other related topics. Its monthly newspaper, the Amzbfst, reported club news and doings. Natalie Silverman took charge of ad- ministrative affairs. ECG OMICS CLUB O PICTURE d program of the Motion Picture . regular showings of film classics al presentation of an original film . directed by the club members. ztors, directors, and writers were a result of their work. Both the kie type movies were studied. Pre- meetings was Julius Crater. DRAMATIC SOCIETY The Dramatic Society, newly reorganized under the aegis of Naomi Riseman and Nick Justin, again boasted an active membership. The aims of the organization were to give students actual training in stage techniques through presenting plays, and to acquire for its members, present and future, a permanent "little theatre" for its presentations. The term's major production was the Pulitzer Prize play, 'You Can't Take It With You." 67 SQCIOLOGY- ANTHROPOLGGY CLUB , , , ,f U 8' ,V 68 Under the capable leadership of Ann Chantz, the members of the Sociology-Anthropology Club made a study of the vocational opportunities in the field of sociology. They then worked on a project that delved into the research methods of students. Meetings of the club enlightened mem- bers on such topics as the Prevention of Crime and the New Congress-New Deal. PHILQSQPHY CLUB Combination lecture-socials were on the agenda of the Philosophy Club for the past year. Pro- fessor Sidney Hook, chairman of the Philosophy Department, reported on the 10th International Congress of Philosophy which he attended at Amsterdam. Ernest Nagel, a famed logician from Columbia University spoke on the "PerpleXities of Human Rights." Discussion periods and re- freshments capped each meeting With Stefan Bauer-Mengelberg presiding. PSYCHOLOGY CLUB Headed by President Marvin Zuckerman, the Psychology Club concentrated on the Work of students in psychology classes, and in the field in general. Among the numerous activities were demonstrations of cases at mental hospitals and lectures on shock therapy, clinical methods, and projective techniques. Socials, films, and partiCS completed a popular and crowded program. MATH CLUB For those students of WSC who were unable to grasp their mathematics quickly or who fell behind in their work, the Math Club came to the rescue. By furnishing tutors, who were math majors, it not only helped the students, but gave invaluable experience to those doing the tutoring. Lectures concerning mathematics and its con- nection to other fields were given regularly by guest speakers. Heading this organization was Stephen Bauer-Mengelburg. GEOLOGY CLUB Swinging right into a successful year, members of the Geology Club completed a collection of fossils and minerals that was on display at the Square. They made field trips to the Granton Quarry, Delaware Water Cap, and Highland Mills. One motion picture, about Mt. Paricutin, was followed by a lecture by Dr. Pough of the Museum of Natural History. Harry Cousminer presided over lectures and socials held by the young geologists. 69 BIOLOGY GROUP One of the largest WSC groups, the Biology Group magnified its operations to the highest power and brought many prominent speakers to its meetings. Unusual scientific films, held trips to museums, and successful socials and dances added to the agenda. The club was open to any student interested in biology. A club highlight was the essay contest and S25 prize awarded by Prexy Sy Evans. VARSITY DEBATE TEAM Composed of WSC's budding radio actors, writ- ers, and producers, the Radio Club was a large and growing organization. Its aims were to dis- seminate radio information and to provide for its members practical instruction in program produc- tion. Club activities ran the gamut-informative lectures, distribution of broadcast tickets, a club newspaper, individual auditions and criticisms of work, and gay socials. Les Dimond presided. l l I n The encouragement and advancement of public speaking formed the basis of the activities of the Varsity Debate Team. Members strove to express themselves simply, clearly, and effectively, abili- ties which all students as future leaders should pos- sess. The team has upheld its outstanding record against all the major colleges of the East. lt achieved notable successes, too, in radio and television contests over which Carl Towbin presided. RADIO CLUB C70 MASONIC SQUARE CLUB The Masonic Square Club promoted friendship among the Masons of WSC. Moreover it en- deavored to instruct members in the principles of Masonry. Donations to the Masonic Foundation of Rheumatic Fever were among its most worthy achievements. To supplement its serious side, the club, led by Norman Ruschin, engaged in many socials throughout the year. Professor Charles Payne advised the young Masons. RETAILING CLUB One of the newest clubs at WSC is the Retailing Club. The members, most of whom are retailing majors, have found this organization most bene- ficial, the club having made valuable contacts for them. Buyers, executives, advertisers, and leaders in the field of retailing were invited to lecture to the group, through the efforts of the President. JUNIOR ADVISERS A small group of junior women served as ad- visers to the co-eds of the incoming frosh class. At the beginning of each term, the advisers and the frosh met at a tea given by the League of Women, Dean Arnold addressed the group and stressed the advisability of keeping close contact between new students and "big sisters." Prom that time on, warm and beneficial friendships ex- isted among the girls. UPPERCLASS CCUNCILLORS The men students in the freshman class were given wise counsel and friendly advice by their Upper- class Councillors. A smoker was featured each term in order for the newcomers and their ad- visers to become acquainted. During the course of their first year at the Square, the freshmen called upon the councillors for advice pertaining to academic problems, extra-curricular activities, and other phases of college life. 72 HoUsE PLAN The House Plan Association is primarily a social organization made up of nearly one thousand undergraduates, attending the three schools at NYU downtown. Activities consist of dances, socials, theatre parties, picnics, forums, and cul- tural pursuits. This last year the organization, in conjunction with Sock and Buskin and the Dramatic Society, presented three one-act plays, the proceeds of which were donated to the Cancer Drive. CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION The Christian Association offered its Protestant membership diversified activities. Under its en- ergetic president, Pred Vanacoeur, the Associa- tion participated in such programs as weekend retreats to the Berkshires, inter-faith programs, student-faculty-parents dinner, and an orienta- tion weekend for freshman at Lake Sebago. Dur- ing each week, ZOO members took part in religious services and socials. NEWMAN CLUB "Where friendships are made and renewed" in- troduces one to the Newman Club and its assort- ment of interesting and enlightening events. Its diversification of activities was exemplihed by such affairs as parties, basketball games, and the Communion breakfasts, all of which were well attended. A Halloween Dance was included in the season's social program, the success of which was due in part to the efforts of the President, Rus Alberding. JEWISH CULTURE POUNDATIGN The Jewish Culture Foundation under its presi- dent, Milton Schleger, presented a program in- cluding prominent Jewish speakers and a Cha- nukah Pageant witnessed by a capacity crowd. A drive for aid for Israel was planned and suc- cessfully completed. The club aspiresto continue to do its part in such worthy undertakings and to present its members with as interesting a schedule as possible. 5 5 3 i sEN1oR QUEEN Queen of the Class of '49 is charming, attractive Ruth Katzman, Brooklyn girl who made good. Ruth, who f t man attended New Utrecht High majored in Radio and plans 'Quill a' Z to do radio publicity after graduation. ' 74 LAKE EB GO Arrival under .rmwgl .fkzef Seclusion, crisp cool weather, outdoor sport, romance-this was Lake Sebago for two wonderful days, and those of the Class of '49 who attended the Bear Mouiitain haven will never forget that February week-end. Along with the Senior Prom the Ski Outing was undoubtedly the social highlight of our college career. It combined clean, healthy play with warm, intimate friendship-something that is few times attained within the packed confines of a bustling university. From the very beginning to the very end there was laughter and singing and the unanimous wish that two days could stretch into two weeks. Senior Class President Sy Evans and the Social Committee led by Joyce Paris worked hard to arrange for the trip and to prepare its essentials-and they continued their efforts at the camp, not hesitating for a moment to do that which would further the enjoyment of the participants and help fulfil their express desire for a successful trip. By late Sunday Unloading the gear . . . The gals get .refilled . . . The tnkeojf Happy lazndingr That extra Jbooe . evening it was Well-established that the safari to Lake Sebago had been a four-star expedition. The trip began on a rather sour note, for Friday night it rained-and spirits were ever-so-slightly dampened. However all took part in the gaiety that prevailed during the bus trip, and when We reached the Bear Mountain rendezvous the sky was clear, there was snovv on the ground, and anticipation was great. We spent the rest of the evening fixing our bunks, making fires, and getting acquainted. ' g Saturday Was perfect, and after a hearty, early breakfast the days activities began. From morning to evening skis Firefide dreaming . . . Good cookr and good food . . . flashed, toboggans rolled Cmostly into treesj, and sleds swept around curves that made bobsledding look babyish. And for some even darkness was no deterrent. The cour- ageous and skillful toboggan team of Evans, Green, Baker, and Libow tempted the fates by attempting to clear the run by the light of the IT1001'1. When it was learned of the thrills and spills of such endeavor others joined the fun and it became a midnight carnival. For the less ambitious the playroom provided a joyful, comfortable setting- ping-pong and dancing being the main attractions. In one corner a virtuoso tinkled on the keys playing old-time favorites, and in another corner smooth Irwin Blackman known to his intimates as "Brooklyn Blackie," recited lines from Milton, Browning and Byron to the sighs and swoons of romantic women. Sunday was even nicer than Saturday-and again every- one was active and happy. Activities came to a standstill only when it came time to turn in the equipment for good. f X NA V30 Xjfxm 5 :"l4i?XiiwEi As Wfi XA fhfm, XbSx'x S3tx.f Kllt-Qf i IW - I ffm?

Thus the afternoon was both interesting and successful entertainment. Late afternoon found us winding our way back to the lacklustre city. Spirits were low but everyone contributed to a somewhat feigned gaiety to cover up the blues. It had been a remarkable weekend and deep down everybody knew that possibly this was a 'ionce in a lifetime" experience. I xy The peffect ending of az perfect day . .

Kaufman Captain foe Dollaan Coach Howard Calm BASKETBALL Last November, when Howard Cann was asked about prospects for the 48-49 basketball season, he gave the same answer he has given for the past fifteen years. "There are a lot of tough teams on the schedule", Cann read from his standard script, "and we'll be lucky to win half of our games". No crying towel routine-what else could you believe. The team that opened against Baylor had only two experienced players and a "big manl' just six feet three. But the Violets pulled the first shocker of a truly sur- prising year and walloped Baylor, 67-47. The next game, with Colgate, was even more ungodly. Seventeen thousand apoplexy victims will never forget Curt Norris who stole the ball and the ball-game just before the buzzer. The eccentric basketball displayed against those two clubs continued until late January, when NYU built a record C7-3D and a reputation Cbest in cityl by dumping Yale, Connecticut, North Carolina and Syracuse in quick succession. 130 5 , ,. .

It was an explosion, a holocaust, a catastrophe. New York went south, and, figuratively speaking, got ridden out of town on a rail as the Duke Blue Devils administered a 73-44 shellacking. Manhattan rubbed salt in the wound, 59-56. The Violets perked up, however, and took their next three opponents into tow. St. Johns, led by Dick Mc- Guire, ended that streak, and though the annual no-holds- barred session with Notre Dame was unusually decorous, Notre Dame won, 71-66.

"As ye live by the fast break, so shall ye perish". CCNY's "five sprinters with a basketballl' offense fell apart in a wild melee and the thirteen point NYU victory would have been a fitting finale, but Ned Irish didn't know Where to send his last invitation, so he decided to hold open house. It was a one-night stand for the eager but meager local entries. t n .YCEIZE from clunic inter-city .rfrzzggle Bradley Tech's Braves from Peoria took to the war-path and scalped, mutilated, and massacred the out-of-season Violets, 89-67. Thus the season ofhcially ended, and the critics seated in Row G side balcony were split in their opinions. But all agreed that, although it was not a champion- ship one, it was filled with enough thrills to Whet slightly a basketball fiends appetite. Birds-eye view from the clamp feats' NYU domimztef the play POGTBALL The renaissance in NYU football did not appear in 1948. The Violets were once again swamped by the "big boys" of the gridiron, and their victories were all gained at the expense of the sub-pars. They were hampered by inept ball handling, injuries, and lack of reserves. 'iHook" Mylin did all that could be expected. Still, certain players stood out as towers of great ability and others revealed future promise. Graduating captain, Dante Gionta, represented virtually the entire line. Bill Payne, Mike Fazio, John Fogarty, and Joe Quinn offered great hope. Cornell, in the first game of the season, set the pattern for most Violet en- counters. The Big Red crushed NYU, 47-6, putting on the pressure in the second half after holding a 20-6 edge at intermission. x The following Saturday saw the Violets outplay Springfield for three periods only to lose in the final quarter on a fourteen yard field goal. Brooklyn College gave the Falisaders their hrst victory with a 21-7 score under Ebbets Field lights. Fogarty was the Violet ace with a 53 yard TD dash. Boston University also walloped NYU in the second half, this time 28-7, after a touchdown lead at the half. NYU's top performance came over Lehigh with a 21-20 victory. All the Violet scores came in the closing periods after a twenty point dehcit. Georgetown barely edged the Palisaders in the next encounter, 13-6, with two NYU touchdowns called hack. Fogarty made the longest run of the year when he scam- pered 93 yards to the Hoya two yard line to set up the lone Violet score. Rutgers, however, pounced again on the reserveless eleven and trounced the Violets, 40-O. The 'inothing boys" from Kings Point provided the type of NYU opposition needed as they presented the Hall-of-Famers a 38-6 gift with plenty to spare. But Fordham took it away with a 26-O trouncing in the season finale.

Coach Emil Vonlfilling TRACK Captain Prank Svonoda While NYU ranked third nationally, two steps lower than their usual position, this was, indeed, a season above mediocrity. Indoors, the Violets captured the Metropolitan AAU Championship with thirty-three points and won the Grover Cleveland games with twenty-eight points. While they failed in the Met Senior games they came through handsomely in the Met Intercollegiate affair and won easily, the victory being the sixth in seven attempts for the Violets. The only real disappointment of the indoor season was in the IC4A games where the touted NYU squad finished seventh The New Y lc . or relay teams were outstanding in 1949-particularly the mile quartet of Kaplan, Gilhooley, Titus, and Pearman with Maiocco filling in occasionall , Ell' y is and Gilhooley were the lon SKZIS. g distance Outdoors the Violets did well-especially shotputting Stan Lampert. The boys warmed to their task on cinders with good performances in the Seton Hall and Penn Relays, and then ran away with the Met Intercollegiate contest with ninety- nine points Lampert settin a n , p g ew record with a heave of fifty-four feet one and three-quarter inches.

McCaf'tfay BASEBALL There's just one thing wrong with being on top . . . no place to go but down. And that's precisely what happened to New York University's varsity baseball team in 1949. The Violets have been champions of the Metropolitan Baseball Conference for the past six years, This season St. johns hnally broke the spell and took the MBC crown. New York tied with City College for second place, posting a ten won, five lost record in league play, and a fifteen- seven season total. At the beginning of the season, the chances that the McCarthymen would remain in their magnificent rut were bright. Twelve veterans, three of them 1948 conference all-stars, returned. Those three were Tom Casey, 1948 out- standing pitcher of the conference, John Brescia, a fine catcher, and Nick Marino, who batted a gaudy .434 in 1948. They got under way in high gear, winning six straight games. They then bowed to Temple and dropped their first MBC tilt to St. Johns. That was followed by three successive victories and it appeared that the Violets would retain their title. St. johns, however, cast another dissent- ing vote and beat NYU for the second time, 3-2, with a ,,f""' . - Q. WF . N ick Marino PITCHERS LEADING BATTERS W L BA.

Brooklyn College, which usually "plays dead" for NYU, staged an unhappy surprise party and stopped the Violets, 8-5. Three games later, an artistic 3-O shutout by Hofstra ruined any hope that NYU had of overhauling the league leaders. In their last four games the team sandwiched two defeats with a 21-2 butchery of Kings Point and a 3-2 win over Army to close out the season. While it appears that the law of averages dethroned the Violets, a more tangible reason would be the lack of con- sistent team hitting. In 1948, NYU led the conference in team batting, setting a .321 pace. This year theyifell off to a dismal .232. Tom Casey, Ed Funai, Billy Kroc, and Captain Phil Angelastro were the Violets standouts all year, with Funai and Kroc being nominated to the con- ference all-star squad. Tam Carey 141 Bill Romana folm Bl'6'J'Ci6Z if U Ygyf ,f wWm-W Coach Larry Howard The successful 1948-49 NYU wrestling season did not provide Coach Lawrence Howard with much opportunity to out- groan his squad as he did the previous season when the varsity won only three of its eight matches. Captained by Robert Metz, the team got off on the right foot by decisively beat- ing Brooklyn College, Temple, and Brook- lyn Poly before they suffered their only two defeats of the season at the hands of Hofstra and Rutgers. Victories over Adelphi and CCNY enabled NYU to com- plete its schedule with a 5 and 2 record. Two members of the squad won indi- vidual honors in the Intercollegiate Met- ropolitan Championships on March 12. Abraham Schuster took third place in the WRE TL1 121 lb. class, William Taussig was crowned champ of the 165 lb. division. Winning of the Rad McCormack Trophy as Metropolitan Intercollegiate Swimming Champions highlighted Louis de Hand- ley's first year as coach, the post Professor Wall held for seventeen seasons. The Violets out-scored Kings Point by 4 points, 46 to 42, to win the title with the defending champs from CCNY finishing third. Lionel Martinez took hrst in the dive as did Henry Dapkewicz the 50 yard free style. In addition to those two firsts, the Violets won 4 seconds and 2 thirds in the close meet which was decided in the last two events. NYU had last taken the title in the 1946-47 season. In its ten meets with other colleges, NYU broke even as they won and lost five. With the completion of a new pool at the Heights, the Violets may soon be able to compete nationally. 1 143 WIMMI Coach Lau Hamilqf ' i 'iw X X7 '62-Ni ...P-If 17 Y if ' 21.

An impressive won and lost record was turned in by the women's field hockey team in beating Queens, Brooklyn, and Hunter, losing only to Stroudsberg. The girls' basketball team won six, lost two, and tied two games this season with Marie Damore of WSC leading the quintet. A loss to Temple was the only defeat of the season for the NYU female aquatic stars. The outstanding swimmer in the group was WSC senior Lee Mc- Roberts. 9 144 NYU's "Mitt'n Mask men", with ten veteran lettermen returning, began the 1948-49 season hoping to beat their 1947- 48 record of 5 wins, 4 defeats, and im- prove on last year's second place standing in the Inter-Collegiate Fencing Associa- tion. Headed by co-captains Joel Archer and Hal Taxel, the Violet Foilmen entered the ICFA with high hopes. The NYU team gained 80 out of a possible 108 points to capture the ICFA crown. This was the ninth time in seventeen years of tourney competition that NYU copped the trophy. The Palisaders had a record of 6 wins, in- cluding an upset of the defending champs CCNY, against one defeat from Navy.

Add as a setting the glamorous background of the Sert Room of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, and you have that particular sparkling elegance which characterized the Senior Prom of the class of '49. The night of May 6 was star-studded, with Broadway stars on stage for entertainment and stars in the eyes of the dreamily dancing couples, swaying to the foxtrots, waltzes, and rumbas provided by alternating baIlClS- The girl was gowned in a flowing evening dress of tarfeta, lace, chiffon or silk, and the boy W2lS suave in evening clothes. They arrived a little breathlessly, a little apprehensive, for this was not an ordinary date, or an ordinary night. They met friends and acquaintances who suddenly seemed especially dear. The girl tucked matches into her bag for a souvenir as the boy signalled the wa1CCf for a drink. They sat at a small table, ate a little of the full dinner served them, and danced ceaselessly- They table-hopped with dozens of others, they laughed and chatted, they reminisced, and they bcgim to feel the first stirrings of Senior Prom nostalgia. ,fs X ff if .-,xzw A , xy ,A x, rl. ,rw ..

With the charming and always-popular Melvyn Douglas as an unoflicial master of ceremonies, the evening reached its peak. The girls sat spell-bound as Billy Eckstine's beautiful voice filled the room, the gay antics of Benny Rubin gave rise to a new outburst of carefree laughter 5 the presence of lovely Jan Sterling quickened many a masculine heart. Though the corsages began to wilt a little and the bankrolls had dents in them by one o'clock, for all of them the evening's gaieties had just begun. They ex- changed addresses with dozens of other couples and promised to call, to phone, to write. They said, "Wasn't it wonderful I", gathered coats and wraps, waved good- bye and set off on the second half of Prom night. The sudden downpour of rain did not dampen spirits as groups of three and four couples ran for cabs to take them to night clubs, supper clubs and hotel roofs. There was more drinking, more dancing, more laughter, more of the excitement thataracterized this one Senior night above all others. The rain stopped, the sky cleared, the dawn came. The night of nights was over, and the dream world disappeared. But the memories lingered OD. In between cozerfer we danced I n between einneef we nie . . . nf A -my . Wh!-A 11- ,.

Early morning-and the university campus was a sprawling deck of human activity. Seniors came early to claim their caps and gowns and lines formed-lines that stretched endlessly. The sun Was blistering, the humidity vvas high, and antic- ipation was great. As more and more seniors dressed in commencement garb there Was an increased milling-graduates gathering in groups-inspecting the campus- vvatching the gathering clouds-discussing the forthcoming event. Ten o'clock, and the call came for marching formation, each school linin SUP behind its banner bearerg promptly at 10:30 the procession began with all the schools filing to their seats before a huge throng of nearly thirty thousand parents, relatives, and friends. Thus the one hundred and seventeenth co mmeneement of little while . . . and thingr looked dermal 151 New York University began- and for nine thousand eighty-eight graduates it meant the finale. Scattered showers dampened spirits and skins-but then the sun came out in full brilliance and Reverend Ralph W. Soclcman made the Invocation. A magnificent color guard featured the playing of the National Anthem and then Dr. Kent, president of' the University Council greeted the graduates. The highlight of the commencement came when each school was presented by its dean to Chancellor Chase for conferment of degrees. As each school rose in unison they were greeted by tremendous bursts of applause-and for each graduate this was the moment- four years-and then a short recognition-that meant everything. To finish the proceedings deserving alumni received meritorious service awards, noted personages received honorary degrees, there was the impressive ceremony of the torch, the benediction by Dr. Sockman, and the pompous recessional. All this indicated the finale. Graduates strained to reach the waiting arms of well- wishers-this was their day-the end of four years-the beginning of a question- mark future.
