The helter-skelter methods which had characterized the nineteenth century were superseded by scientific practices. It was during this period of transition, when business was coming of age, that the need for collegiate schools of business was felt most strongly. In establishing the School of Commerce, New York University helped fill this need. The School of Commerce took its place as the outstanding school of its type in the country. Today forty years after its inception, the School of Commerce still epitomizes the new business spirit. Through its doors have passed many of the business leaders of today. Through its doors will continue to pass young men and women, the future business leaders, who will carry on the great tradition which modern business and the School of Commerce represent.

its first years of existence, tooo-oz. consisted of twelve men-five professors and seven lecturers-who taught basic courses in political economy, accounting, and finance to a student body of eighty-nine. Today, forty years after, the Commerce faculty consists of two hundred and sixty-nine members-thirty-four professors, thirty-two associate professors, twenty-five assistant professors, nine lecturers. one hundred and twenty-six in- structors, a medical doctor, an employment secretary, and a secretary of student activities-who teach sixteen major courses. including hundreds of individual subjects, to a student body of 12.805, Charles Waldo Haskins, C.P.A. professor of auditing and of the history of acountancy, was the first dean of the School of Commerce. After his death in 1903. joseph French johnson, A.B. professor of political economy and finance. was appointed dean. Dean Johnson's idea was to "secure the service of practical busi- ness men and public accountants as instructors and lecturers along lines in which they have arrived at.eminence." Among the most eminent men Dean johnson obtained were Joseph Hardcastle, Elijah A. Sells, and Frank .-X. Vanderlip. How- ever, the faculty was not a permanent body, and with the growth of the Day Division, Dean johnson saw the necessity of obtaining a group of professors and instructors who couldfdevote most of their time to teaching. Another of Dean johnson's views was that teachers of business subjects should keep in touch with practical affairs of the business world. This policy of appointing men closely associated with the Held which they lectured on is still prevalent. At the start the faculty had to find texts which covered the new subjects that were being taught at Commerce, and so some of the earlier faculty members began writing texts in such subjects as commercial law and accounting. Texts were particularly needed in commercial law, for in 1902 and 1903 Professor Bacon established the first commercial law courses, which were the hrst successful courses of their kind in the country. In 1926 o11r present dean, john T. Hadden, was appointed Dean of the School of Commerce, Accounts, and Finance. Dean Madden had been a student, instruc- tor in accounting, professor and head of the Accounting Department, a11d assistant dean under ex-Dean johnson, Dean Madden has followed the basic ideas 0f Dean johnson in the selection of the faculty of Commerce. That the School of Commerce faculty enjoys the reputation of being one of the best in the country and that thousands of alumni hold good positions in the business world, are indications of the success of the faculty.

On tl1e contrary, seldom has there been a time in my observation 111ore freighted with opportunity than the immediate future. You have pursued your studies during dark days of political tribulation and economic depression. You have fruitfully reversed the ancient adage by making hay while tl1e sun was cloud-bound. If your studies in economics have taught you anything, they have pictured to you the cyclical character of our ups and downs. Certainly we are not far removed from the lowest stage of one of those cycles. The turn of the years and tl1e consequent turn of the cycle must inevitably carry us up- ward. You are literally in on the ground floor in the rebuilding of a newer and liner social 2l1'1Cl economic structure. That your training here will stand you in good stead as opportunities confront you, I haven't the least doubt, and I bid you Godspeed with the utmost confidence in your future. Clmricellor.

And it generally follows that if your neighbor's well-being is improved, yours will be better also. Your training should enable you to distinguish sound economic procedures offered by wise statesmen from tl1e quack nostrums urged by politicians. And so, if someone tells you that here is a "limited emergency" or that there is "national safety", be not moved but incredulous because I have been hearing these alarms every four years since I became a voter. The astonishing thing to me in the depression years was the very common yielding to the spirit of defeat rather than resistance. Instead of that faith in the traditional policy and ideals that made America a great nation, there was the skepticism that finally surrenders to totalitarianism. I sincerely hope that you have not been infected with the false philosophy that the struggle for class interests is more important than the struggle for individual liberty. You have no conception of the terror and fear under which one lives in a dictatorship whether of the Stalinist or the Nazi type. You cannot appreciate the sweetness and delight of personal and individual liberty until you see the misery of those who have lost it. A dictator has nothing but contempt for the masses over whom he rules, and yet he dreads perpetually the possibility of their revolt. Dictatorships differ fundamentally only in their techniques for influenc- ing, deceiving, controlling, and Hnally terrorizing the masses. Ultimately something happens, often with inexplicable suddenness, and the masses get rid of their dictators. And so, all the HlS1l1SH that we see in power today will, in their turn, fall and disappear. Your job and mine is to show that democracy can function efficiently in a complex and intricate economic life and that bureaucracy, corrupt politics, and inefficient and irresponsible economics shall not possess our land. 072441 Dean.

BONNEVILLE MULFORD lVlARTIN 25 Accounting HE preeminence of the School of Commerce among collegiate schools of business is largely attributable to the excellence of its Department of Account- ing.

Rosenkampff is the present cl1airman. 'Www-Q, The elementary courses in accounting are designed for students desiring a gen- eral knowledge of the subject. The ad- vanced courses, on the other hand, serve to prepare students 1II?lj01NIIlg i11 acco1111ting for tl1e C.P.A. examinations, under the theory that Arthur H. Rosenkam pff C11 nirm an one trained for public accountancy, as epitomized in these examinations, will be capable of enter- ing almost any branch of private accountancy. A recent innovation, typical of the departments constant revision and improvement of sub- ject matter and method, is tl1e practice of presenting to students the last fo11r problems in the advanced accounting problems co11rse under actual C.P.A., examination conditions. Both its world-wide reputation and the highly successful business careers of its many former students testify to tl1e success of the Accounting Department. Banking and Finance OURSES in finance were given at the School of Connnerce long before the Department of Banking and Finance was formerly organized in 1915. For a time courses were given by a faculty of two, Dean joseph French johnson and Dr. Frederick A. Cleveland, the former giving courses in banking and the latter courses in corporation Hnance. I11vestment courses were added in 1904. Among the early lecturers in investments were Mr. Frank A. Vanderlip, Mr. Albert V. Atwood, and Mr. Lawrence Chamberlain. The subjects of real estate and insurance were added in 1905. Mr. Edward R. Hardy was the Hrst insurance lecturer and is still a member of the department faculty. In 1913-14, Mr. David E. Golieb gave lectures in the subjects of credit and collections. Mr. Golieb, also, is still a member of the department faculty. Formal organization of the Banking and Finance Department took place in 1915 when Dr. Charles VV. Gerstenberg became its head. Under Dr. Gerstenberg considerable expansion of the various courses took place. The subject of Federal Taxes was added to the curriculum in 1919. In the general reorganization of the faculty in 1923, Professor Major B. Foster, formerly of the Department of Economies, became chairman of this department. Since that time the de- partment has kept pace with the school in meeting the greatly increased demands for instruction and has expanded the several Helds taught into complete programs of specialization and in addition, has added a complete program of graduate work. Major B. Foster Chairman 26 Business English HE Department of Business English continues to carry forward the aims promulgated in 1908 when the hrst course in business writing was offered at New York University. At that time the idea was advanced that in a pro- fessional school English can best be learned through tl1e practical application of the principles of rhetoric to specihc business problems. It was felt, too, that men with business experience - complemented, of course, by a full background in English grammar and rhetoric - were better equipped to teach these courses than were men wl1o had only a11 academic training. Not only have these ideas been carried forward by tl1e School of Commerce to the present day, but they have been adopted by other professional colleges as well. A, Earle lX-Ianville The curriculum of the department includes courses Clmiirmgm in the construction of business letters, in the writing of accountants, letters and reports, and in public speaking. The courses in public speaking are de signed to train tl1e student to prepare and present the type of speeches that are usually demanded in business, social, and community life. Economies HEN the School of Commerce was organized this Department of Economics was the only one of its kind in New York University. Sometime later, about IQQ3, the nucleus of the Economics was formed by members of our department. A few years later the Economics Depart- ment at the Heights was started by taking members from the Commerce department. In recent years a small department of economics has been formed in the School of Business Administration and in the Graduate School of Liberal Arts. The first chairman of tl1e Economics Department was John F. Johnson, He was followed by Willard Fisher, and then by James D. Magee. Dr. Walter E. Spahr was appoint- ed chairman in 1927. The most important change in depart- 1 ment technique, since Dr. Spahr became chairman, has been to have departmental questions passed on by members of the staff, rather than to have the chairman act as the head. This has made for greater democracy of administration in the de- partment. Another important change has been in the teaching of Statistics. Years ago little stress was laid upon this sub- ject but now three consecutive years of statistics are given. Elementary economics has been made a two-year' course. The fourth change was to create staff assis- tants, including two senior assistants and four junior assistants, all of whom are VValter E. Spahr graduate students. C7wi1'11w11 27 General Courses ESIGNED to furnish business students with the cultural training so essential to the well-informed business man, the General Course Department was organized in September, 1926. This department gives a series of survey courses embracing the Helds of litera- ture, history, mathematics, science, psychology, so- ciology, art, government, public speaking, and ethics, all of which attempt to acquaint tl1e student broadly with the best thought in these helds. Before the General Department was organized, the curriculum of the School of Commerce consisted primarily of courses in business subjects. As a result, both on the advice of alumni and faculty, it was decided that the curriculum at Commerce was DOE broad enough to prepare the graduate to take his proper place in social affairs. Therefore, the faculty introduced into the curriculum tl1e survey type of cultural course that has now been so widely adopted . .. lEIl"l.K'llIl by other universities. C Mau 1 C U Clmiiwmiz Journalism OR twenty-nine years the Department of journalism has been carrying on an important pro- gram. lnaugurated by Dean joseph F. Johnson of the School of Co1n1nerce, Accounts and Finance in 1911, the department was first headed by james M. Lee. Besides being author of History of American jozmmlism, which is used by the department today, Professor Lee also wrote Opportunities in the ATGZUSIJIIPU7' Bfzzsiness and other i1nportant books on journalism. Under his leadership, the department widened tl1e scope and improved the quality of the courses offered. When Professor Lee died in 1929, Professor Henry Bailey Rathbone was appointed to succeed him as chairman. The department con- tinued to build its reputation as a leading school of journalism, and the en- rollment of journalism majors soon ranked with those of the Departments of Accounting, Marketing, Law, and other important divisions in the School of COIHITIGFCC. On the staff of the department are to be found some of the leading journalists of today. Last year Professor Gregory Mason's book, Remembei' the Maine, was published by Henry Holt and Company. Mr. Mason is an assistant professor of journalism. The Biography of Daniel -W-W-aww ,.,..,. . Boone by Professor john Bakeless, con- taining documentary material never be- fore presented in printed form, made its fr Henry B. Rathbone appearance in the latter part of August, Clzztirmcm receiving wide acclaim in literary circles. 28 Law AVING led the Law Department since its inauguration in September 1902, Professor Cleveland F. Bacon has retired from his position as chairman and has been appointed professor emeritus. Excellent results have been obtained from the new policy introduced last year regarding classroom procedure. The change required all students studying law to do term problems entailing much re- search work and to take monthly quizzes in each course. The problems are de- signed to enable students to keep abreast of all the changes that are occurring in G. Rowland Collins business as well as in the law Held. Clmirmnn No additions have been made to the faculty of the department during the past year, but Mr. John M. MacGregor and Mr. Stuart IV. Rowe were raised from the rank of instructor to that of assistant professor. Other members of the department are: Assistant Professor Mfalter P. Myer and Messrs. Earle H. Gale, IVilliam E. Bowe, Xllalter R. Barry, James E. Manning, Douglas E. Mathewson, YVilliam Grossman, A. Vincent Ru bino. and Ralph Santoro. In many cases, these faculty members are engaged in outside practices, thus acquiring working knowledge of the courses that they teach and at the same time bringing first-hand methods of everyday law to the students. Management INCE the Management Department was organized in 1916 under the direction of Prof. Lee Galloway, increased attention is being directed to the Held of industrial relations in universi- ties all over the country. At present, with Prof. IfVilliam B. Cornell at the head, the work of the Management and Industrial Department at the School of Commerce covers a broad field. Its aim is two-fold: first, to lay clown the basic principles of business organization and management, second, to show the application of these principles in the various fields of business, in production, in office manage- ment, in purchasing, and in industrial relations. The program of the department is designed so that the student trained in management becomes familiar with the activities and general workings of each department in a business, with certain tech- niques and methods employed, and with the rela- tionship which the departments hold one to another and to the business as a whole. In this way the stu- dent gains a true perspective of business. He also becomes familiar with labor problems and methods of solving them, with problems of supervision and leadership, and with the methods of handling them. i Wlhile there has been no radical change in the f teaching techniques of the Management Department, f there has been an increased emphasis on the social , , si nificance of certain trends and advances in busi- Mfilliam B. Cornell g . ness. Clmzrmzm 29 Marketing ONTINUING a steady growth from a single one-semester course in 1916, the Department of Marketing has ex- panded until it now gives forty-three dif- ferent courses in the various phases of marketing excluding retailing. The present scope of the Department embraces all the processes in the distribu- tion of goods and those phases of manu- facturing which particularly aim to please the consumer. Specialized courses are offered to develop technique in writ- Hugh E- Agnew ing copy, iirchoosingu appropriate typog- raphy, and in designing layouts. Classes in salesmanship and sales management now cover sales promotion. Various steps in the production of tl1e complete advertising campaign have special classes devoted to their development. Advanced courses have recently been added in which the techniques and skills learned in fundamental courses are applied to retail and whole- sale selling. Original colored slides, produced by a method developed by Professor Houghton, are used to enliven and illustrate the lectures. Textbooks are being supplemented by reference library C1111 irmn n work, since almost a thousand books have been written on the various aspects of marketing. Members of the Department have written more than twenty-live texts which are used in schools throughout the country. Secretarial Studies HE first work in the Held of secretaryship offered at the School of Commerce, Accounts and Finance was a unit course, "Private Secretarial Duties," which was introduced very early in the history of the school. In 1934 courses in ste- nography and typewriting were added, but still the secretarial courses remained under the jurisdiction of the Department of Management. The Depart- ment of Secretarial Studies was organized in the fall of 1937, and Professor Anne Corrigan was appointed its first chairman. The staff of the depart- ment consists of live full-time members and two part- time instructors. No new additions were made to the staff during the current academic year. The scope and program of the Secretarial Depart- ment is to give technical training to men and women who have the aptitude and personal qualities for successful work in the field of secretarvship, and at the same time, to provide such students with oppor- tunities to secure a well-rounded education and to become familiar with one or more special Helds of business. In addition to the students who are special- izing in the secretarial Held, the courses of the depart- ment are open, by special permission, to a few students who may be majoring in other fields of work. Anne Corrigan C lm irman 30 Public Utilities OINCIDENT with the foundation of the Real Estate Department, the De- partment of Public Utilities and Trans- portation had its beginning three years ago under the leadership of Prof. H. B. Dorau. Since that time the Public Utili- ties and Transportation Department and Real Estate Department have become closely associated through new courses offered. For example, a new unit of work entitled The Port of New York demon- strates the influence of transportation facilities on land utilization and regional Herbert B' Dorau planning. This course has its counter- Cjmiymnn part in the Real Estate Department under the title Regional Planning and Zoning. It was felt that the influence of local utilities on city planning and vice versa is a problem of interest to students of both public utilities and trans- portation and real estate. Appropriate recognition has been accorded the increasing demesne of public regulation by the addition of a course in public utility law to alternate with the present section on Public Utility Commission Policy and Administrative Procedure. The course in Classification and Inter- pretation of Public Utility Accounts has been supplemented by another course, Accounting Problems in Public Utility Regulation, because of the increasing importance of accounting control. The contemporary aspect of the public utility problem requires a constant revision of sub- ject matter and course materials. As a by-product of continuous contact with governmental agencies and private concerns, the Public Utilities and Transportation Department has accumu- lated a wealth of material for the use of its students. Real Estate Department ESPONDING to a need for basic instruction in the field of real estate and urban land eco- nomics, the Real Estate Department was founded three years ago with Prof. H. B. Dorau as its chairman. Since that time the enlarged program of instruction and research has been attract- ing more and more students to this interesting field of work. Numerous changes have taken place in the teaching technique in the past year. The signif- icance of real property taxation and its influence on land utilization are being developed in the course in Taxes and Taxation. More advanced work in the field of real estate taxation is offered in a course on Valuation of Urban Realty for the Purpose of Taxation. The Departments of Real Estate and Public Utilities are cooperating in a series of courses on appraisal and valuation. Of interest to students of both urban land and public utility economics are the courses, Principles of Property Valuation, Engineering Appraisal Practice and Procedure, and Cases and Problems in Real Estate Appraisal and Valuation. The increasing interest of students in real estate courses has required additions to the teach- ing personnel. Beginning in September, 1939 Assistant Professor Cramp came with the Depart- ment on a full-time basis. Professor Cramp has taught real estate at New York University for fourteen years. In addition to Prof. H. B. Dorau, chairman, the department staff consists of Associate Professor C. Elliot Smith, Assistant Professors Ralph E. Cramp, Nelson L. North: Dr. A. Mertzkeg Messrs. W. D. Bryant and E. Jenner. 31 32 iz W W X A - ' .. ' 'W' 1,:A.,, -- . "ig , fQ21, ,f'wx - Hg.. Af: , 5 ' LK-.., .,.-4p,,.M,.,.X.q 1 -- -WWW - ' ' ' f - ,. - Q .

This growth has been due to the need lor more and more highly-specialized leaders in the business world, and to the superiority ol' the faculty and the curriculuni of the School. As a result of the specialized training they received here and of the excellence of the faculty teaching methods, graduates of the School of Commerce have dis- tinguished themselves in almost every type ol' occupation in the business world. Included among the leaders of industry who have become famous through their own hard-earned efforts are many School of Conunerce graduates. Robert E. Degen, merchandising director ol' Kenyon and Eckhardt: VllllOlll2lS AI. Lzuiheady. Alexander Hamilton Instituteg Bernard Lichtenberg, president ol' the Institute of Public Relationsg James D. Mooney, vice president of General Motors Corpora- tion: and Wlilliam E. Robinson, advertising director of the New I'orl: Herffld Tribune are all successful graduates. Other well-known graduates of the School include: Douglas Taylor. vice- president of Printer's Ink Publishing Company: John L. Anderson. secretary and treasurer, of McCann-Erickson, Inc.g Paul Tierney, ol' the New York Post: and Jimmy Roach of the New York Times. Since 1902 Commerce graduating classes have lornied themselves i11to alumni clubs.

The lobby was Hlled with wondering, wide-eyed freshmen. Vlfhat was in store for them? Though they looked like any other freshman class which had ever entered the school, still there was some- thing distinctive about this crew. This was the class of '4o! lt didn't take them long to enter into the spirit of things, for in a little while they had kidnapped the sopho- more president. Then their president was captured in turn by the sophs. Soon after, they ran their frosh smoker and hen party, both of which were highly successful. The Hrst year ended with the Frosh Hop, held in the Casino- in-the Air of the Hotel Montclair, where a large aggre- gation of freshmen and upperclassmen danced to the strains of Lou Garcia and his orchestra. In their second year the Class of '40 really established itself as a great class. Its members succeeded in capturing the freshman class president and delivering him to his smoker clothed in female attire. At the same time they provided adequate protection for their own leader. Then the social hoop began to roll. The giant smoker held at Caruso's was the first smoker in seven years to show a proht. The hen party at Streiffer's Rose Room was equally successful. The activities of the year were cli- maxed by the Soph Hop held in the beautiful Sky Gardens of the Hotel St. Moritz. Lew Sherwood and his orchestra provided the music, and Joy Hodges, star of 'Tcl Rather Be Right", was the guest star of the evening. The Class of '4o's junior year further established its claim to immortality in the mythical Commerce Hall of of '40 has enva 'ed been Vice-President 38 Estelle Golish, vice-president of the Senior Class, has many activities to her credit.

The class basketball team won the intra-mural championship of the School. The Social Committee instituted a skating party, an innova- tion which was eagerly accepted. The year ended with the Junior Prom in the Italian Gardens and the Embassy Room of the Hotel Ambassador. Phil Sands and his or- chestra supplied the musical entertainment, and Dorothy Lamour was present to be crowned "Queen of the Prom". And finally the class entered its senior year and be- came known as one the most active senior classes ever seen in Commerce. The senior smoker at Firenze's Res- taurant was attentled by 140 men-an all-time record for smoker attendance. The hen party at the Hotel Victoria attracted 90 girls, which established an attendance record for hen parties. The seniors showed even more superiority over the lower classmen when they began sporting senior buttons in the hallways and classes. Their socials were so crowded that many were turned away for lack of room. Next came a skating party on February 29. The grand climax of the year came with the Senior Ball. This gala alfair, held on March 16, was preceded by the Pre-Ball dance, held at the Hotel Vifoodstock on March 2. The Ball was held in the Colonnades Room of the Essex House, and George Hall and his orchestra supplied the music. The grand Hnale of all four years was Senior VVeek. The moonlight sail up the Hudson, the senior sports dance, and the original Senior Show provided many memories for seniors. And last but not least came the eventful day of days, June 5, the day of graduation. 39 Senior NORMAN TOPPER KAY JXLLAN Boy Most Likely lo Succeed Most Respected Co-eel PHILOMLNA NIANGRELLI VVILLIANI VVEINSTOCK Best Athlete, Girl Best Dressed Boy IRMA HERB'IAN CLARICE EPSTEIN Most Versatile Co-eel lVIOst Industrious C0-ed HAROLD PUTTERIVIAN SALLY YMINOGRAD Most Respected Boy Best Dressed Co-ed 40 Celebrities THOMAS MULVANEX' ABRAHANI BEER Most Industrious Boy Most Popular Boy RUTH DOWNING ROBERT LEYVIS Most Popular Co-ecl Best Athlete, Boy PROFESSOR GOULD HARRIS ESTELLE GOLISH Favorite Professor Most Attractive Co-ed MARTIN SOBEL ARNOLD EISENGEIR Most Handsome Boy Most Versatile Boy 4I 42 ROBERT PETTIGREW President Class of 1940 43 Class of 1940 HE college years of the Evening Class of 1940 started off on a hilarious and spirited keynote. The events of our "salad days" were crystallized in a series of harmless kidnappings. These nefarious exploits acted as a boon to class meeting attendance and general class interest. During its sophomore year, the Class of '40 joined forces with the lower sophs, and this mutual cooperation had a benehcial effect on both groups. The annual Sophomore Hop was held at the Hotel Ambassador and was a very dehnite social success. A good lesson in group cooperation and its benehts was learned during 1936. The midway point in our college career was passed with little formal celebration, but it did signify our abstract "coming of age." The high spot of the lower junior year was the Prom at the Essex House. Highlights of the upper Junior year were the junior Prom, which was held in the Italian Gardens of the Hotel Ambassador, and the Spring Shin-Dig at the "Open Door" in Greenwich Village. The Shin-Dig was a cooperative venture with the Evening Student Council. Then came our senior year. One of the most noteworthy events of the entire year for the seniors, as well as for every other class, was the Student Council Christmas party. Naturally, members of the Senior Class had a leading role in this party. The purpose was to stimulate student Albert Nathan Kass is one of the most popular boys in the senior class because of his ever bubbling spirits. his excellent sense of humour, and his reputation as one of the hardest workers in the class. Al was a member of the Prom Committee, Executive Committee and the Vigilante committee in his sophomore year. He was also class orator and chairman of the Social committee. He was president of his class last year. During the '39-'40 school year, he has been a hard working member of the senior smoker and senior ball com- mittees. VVith a beautiful wife to go home to at the end of a gruelling day, William S. Leonhardt is one of the few students who might be said to have a legitimate excuse for being an "elevator chaserv. However, in spite of this excuse, he has found time to interest him- self in the affairs of his class and his classmates. Bill has been a member of the executive committee, the vigilantee committee, and has served a term as class 01'atO1'. He was also a member of the Violet Staff. Despite a late awakening to the possibilities of active participation in student affairs and activities, John William MacVittie Jr. has more than made up for his early inactivity by hard and conscientious work in his last two years. In addition to his many committee activi- ties, he has been elected to the Executive Committee of his class for the last two years. His ready smile and sympathetic nature have combined with his other sterling traits to make him one of the most popular and best liked men in the night class of 1940. 44 Donald N. Anderson has been one of the most active members of the class of 19.10. He served as a member of the night student council for two years in the capacity of class treasurer. At present he is vice-president of the senior class. In addition to his political achievements, Don has been very active on the various publications of the school. spending Hve years on the Violet and being elected to the associate board of the Bulletin. As a reward for his hard and conscientious work he has been elected to several of the honorary fraternities of the school. Among these are Beta Gamma Sigma. Alpha Delta Sigma, and Alpha Phi Sigma. He has also been given a Violet Scroll and Bulletin Medallion as a reward for his work on those publications. Eugene H. Shutman. hrst vice president of the senior class. has participated in many and varied activities in the School of Com- merce. He has been a member of the Publicity committee, Chairman of the Social committee, an ofhcer of jefra Council. and the chairman of the Athletic committee. He has also been active on the Bulletin, the Violet. Triad League. and the Junior Prom Committee. He was elected to Alpha Phi Sigma in his junior year. In addition to being very active in class politics, Douglas Logan has time and again proven his athletic ability through the medium of intra-mural sports. He has been treasurer of his class, vice-presi- dent and on the executive committee. He has been active on the Violet and was a member of the intra-mural basketball and bowling teams. His many activities made him the logical choice for election to the junior honorary, Alpha Phi Sigma. interest in class and club activities. The idea was pre- sented in the form of a playlet, which was witnessed by what was perhaps the largest undergraduate assemblage in the forty year history of the school. The affair inspired considerable progress. In February the class "went Broad- way," and a theatre party attended the revue "Pins and Needles." Later in the same month, the senior smoker was held at the fashionable Havana-Madrid. Then the Senior Ball! By far the largest number of evening seniors ever to attend a Senior Ball danced to the music of George Hall in the Colonnades Room of the Essex House. Pretty Olympe Bradna, a budding movie Starlet, and Micheal Vlfhalen were guest stars. Mildred Rothblum, an evening senior, was crowned Cinderella of the Senior Ball. As a climax to a busy year, the Senior Class, acting in cooperation with the Student Council, tendered the Spring Frolic at the Cornish Arms Hotel. Unquestionably, one of the most gratifying aspects of our last year was the close bond maintained between the evening and day senior classes. It is the combined hope of both senior classes that the example that they have set will act as an incentive to future senior classes to sustain a full measure of cooperation between the day and evening groups. 45 if? 1 YK Qs. . . . iq, m a, ,X X l M X X was B r X as 1 Q .. .X 'W I mfs:-:V r m 4 N rx X Q s..s.,,,f, Q 1 af N vi' X we s X X N in-w P FMS Q' ig, V . 0, ,A W as 1 2 f, , . 1555 Kma- N' .s 'A 611 N X is S it 1 if N, N X t 2, - . z 1 tim X X P ass 3 N Q -1 -Q 3 kk x ., ,.

As tl1ey could do this Ollly alter business hours, tl1e first classroom sessions were held in the evenings. The curriculum offered the first year consisted ol' seven courses dealing almost entirely with accounting a11d accountants' problems, About sixty students were enrolled, and tl1e results were satisfactory Clllillgll to promise a successful future, especially wl1e11 -Ioseph French Alohnson was chosen lilll'll1C1' to organize and develop tl1e school. Mr. -Iohnson was lornierly a professor in tl1e lVllZl1'tOH School of tl1e University of Pennsylvania and had had lllL' experience as a teacher, a business executive, and a newspaper editor and publisher. VVithin ten years the student enrollment had passed the thousand mark, and at the time of Dean johnsorrs death in 1925 it was well over live thousand. The curriculum showed a list of more than two hundred courses, some of which were offered in as many as twenty sections. Being a pioneer in tl1e held ol commercial courses, and situated in the largest coinmercial city of the United States, tl1e New York University School of Commerce naturally attracted students not only from its own community but from distant cities and countries. i The Day Division was established in 1912 for the benefit of students who could devote their full time to classroom work. A Brooklyn Division was founded in 1912 and a few years later a lfVall Street Division. There were some students wl1o desired more instruction than was required for tl1e bachel0r's degree, and graduate work was soon provided for them. In 1915 in answer to the needs of tl1e rapidly expanding student body, tl1e schedule of courses was extended from 9 a.1n. to 10 lllll., permitting continuous use of classroom facilities. The Mforld VVar brought with it a notable change in the classes i11 tl1e School of Commerce, namely tl1e greater importance of tl1e Day Division. Starting with 60 day students in 1912, this group averaged over 300 in the years from 1915 to 1918, but it was never more tl1an 1076 of the total student body. The Vfar gave a boom to these figures. Tl1e fact that the students entering day scl1ool were much younger than the average 30 year old night student necessitated further changes in tl1e curriculum such as the development of more cultural courses and a closer connection with VVashington Square College. By 1930 tl1e Day students comprised about gofz, of the total enrollment, the evening classes growing more slowly than the day section. During tl1e present term tl1e enrollment, both day and evening, consists of approximately 12,805 students. Consequently, the School of Commerce, Accounts, and Finance today is one of the largest business colleges in the United States. A Message to the Undergraduates O the members of the Class of 1940, this book will have a special signiiicance. For them it will serve as a treasure house of memories in the years to come. To the undergraduates, this book merely marks off another knot in the formal academic voyage - the course to commencement lies ahead. It can hardly be amiss, then, for me to urge all those upperclassmen who turn these pages to dwell upon this record not alone in the pride of present accomplishment but also in resolution of future attainment. Insofar as the administrative faculty oflice that is in charge of student activi- ties can pronounce judgment, the leadership among the Seniors has been par- ticularly noteworthy. You undergraduates have been especially fortunate in the character, ability, and good taste that have been prevalent among the Senior officers of your councils, your clubs, and your publications. . The Senior leaders are now at the end of their voyage. They are ready to turn over their commission and authority into your eager hands. It is my hope that you accept and justify their trust. Certainly, your task is to preserve the inheritance that they are about to leave with you -yes, and to build upon that inheritance. In such an effort you have my very good wish.

JACK CRESPIN HE Junior Class marked its social season with a long series of gala events. The Lassman Hall socials, which were an important part of its social activities, differed from previous junior Class dances. Each affair had a basic theme which was manifested in unique entertainment and costume. One of the most successful socials was a joe College Dance, at which the participants attempted to imitate the comic strip and Hollywood ver- sions of a collegians wardrobe. The real social whirl was inaugurated on November 3 with the hen party and smoker. The hen party was held in the Queen Victoria under the expert supervision of Shirley Nadel, Evelyn Sirotin, and Betsy Leichter. Mr. Hay- ward Holbert, Ruth Downing, and Abraham Beer were the guest speakers. Red alligator- calf compacts imprinted with the gold letters N. Y. U. were the attractive souvenirs distribu- ted to all the girls attending. The men met at Caruso's Restaurant on the same evening and enjoyed the smoker arranged by Sidney Glazer, Irving Mathewson, and Ber- nard Brody. Each guest received a silver key chain upon which was inscribed the N. Y. U. seal. Among the high lights of the evening a junior Class Night and a skating party as forerunners of the junior Prom. These events were arranged by Co-Chairmen Rita E. Press and Beatrice Gorclen. The final and most pretentious social affair of the year was the junior Prom. A complete "Prom consciousness" among class members was brought about by careful organizing. The class held a Pre-Promenade Social two weeks before the dance. This social offered prizes and surprises, and it also served as an oppor- tunity for the class to have its last get-together before the Prom. The Prom was held in the Orchid Room of Hotel Demonico. There the juniors spent an enjoyable evening dining and dancing. Delightful music was the order of the evening, and the entire class applauded John- ny McGee and his band members for doing their part to make the Prom a great success. This outstanding event of the year, which drew the curtain on the junior social season, was made possible through the efforts of Eugene Rodgin, Arnold Steinberg, and Manny Green- Field. were the "man-to-man" talks by Professors Gould Harris and Louis Sprigg, Arch Murray of the New York Post, and Archie Roberts, New York U. varsity backheld coach.

Our proudest remembrances are that we were "in tl1e fun" in all fields of endeavor-social, athletic, and scholastic. Tl1e Junior Prom, held in the Orchid Room of Hotel Delmonico on Saturday evening, April 6, was the highlight of our social season. More evening students than ever before at- tended this affair. Maestro Johnny McGee and his orchestra supplied the musical entertain- ment for tl1e juniors and their guests. Our fall term dance was held in early October and started the social whirl in the Evening School of Commerce. After the un- usual success of this dance, the class planned more affairs, equally successful. At the request of the Evening Student Council, the class com- bined resources with the other night classes to make the Evening Commerce Spring Festi- john Hynes S if Will Schubert .

Through whole-hearted support of this affair, the Class of '41 helped to make it an event to be compared favorably with the Christmas Party sponsored by the Evening Student Council in December. VVhile the class as a whole was active in tl1e social and adminstrative life of the School, a number of members of the class were par- ticularly active in various lines of endeavor. Outstanding among these were Ed May, class treasurer and secretary to the Evening Student Council, Joe DeVico, editor to the Commerce Bulletin, Milton Gurtin, C. F. treasurerg lVill Schubert and Mfalter Klavans, staff mem- bers of tl1e Commerce Bulletin' Fred Slocum, class president, and other members of the class who were initiated into Alpha Phi Sigma, junior honorary fraternity, and who received other honorary awards.

At the Halloween social, Lassman Hall was re- splendent in black and orange decorations. At the "Beat Fordham" affair, an effigy of the Fordham Ram, resting in a sombre coffin draped in black, was placed strategically in front of the orchestra. The climax of the fall socials was a frosh-soph get-together to pro- mote a closer bond among the members of both classes, at which games and music were provided. The members of the social com- mittee were Bert Gottesman, Lorraine Smith, and Harold Eichelbaum. On December 8 the men of the day Class of '42 appeared en masse at Pollack's Restaurant for their smoker. Guest speakers at the smoker included Louis Prima, bandleader and Eddie Harris, president of the Swing Clubg Mr. Hayward Holbert, Professor Louis Sprigg, and Doctor Alfred M. Nielsong and student leaders Abraham Beer, Arthur Pinsky, and Robert G. Harris. Gold key chains were pre- sented as souvenirs. The hen party was held the same evening at the Hotel Victoria. Miss Gladys Reutiman, Professor Robert B. Jenkins, Ruth Downing, Clarice Epstein, and Mrs. Louis Prima were entertained as guests at the co-ed affair. The Laura Freedman Dotty Meyers Nat Schlanger 111 sophomore girls received college charm brace- lets as souvenirs. Under the co-editorship of Mal W'allerstein, Muriel Rodin, and Naomi Benin, a class paper was published. A special issue was dis- tributed at the Sophomore Frolic at the Hotel Ambassador. The highlights of this issue were: an article on the committee chairman, Lee Mittleman, and a list of all who attended the affair. A successful Soph Hop was held on April 13 at the Hotel Ambassador in the beautiful Italian Gardens. Music was supplied by Buddy Clark and his orchestra. 'lack Leonard, Peg LaCentra, and Yvette were the guest stars. Un- like the ordinary run of guest stars, these three remained at the affair the entire evening. Auto- graph seekers found the three guests very cooperative. Lee Mittleman was the chairman of what was termed the most successful Sopho- more Frolic ever held. DAVID LATZ President President . . .

Once again, as in pre- vious years, a Hne spirit of cooperation and ready service were demonstrated among the officers and members of the class and with the other classes. The class cooperated closely with the Eve- ning Student Council to make the All-Com- merce Smoker at Longchamps Restaurant a real success. A large number of the men from '42 were present to hear Professor Gould Harris and Professor Robert jenkins address the evening men at this time. just before the Christmas holidays, the class again worked with the Council in its sponsorship of the highly successful Christmas Party. The lfVinter Dance of the class, the hrst so- cial sponsored by the class for the evening students, was held on Vfednesday evening, December 13, in Lassman Hall. The large turnout of the student body showed that the dance was well appreciated. In March, the class combined its resources and talent with that of the Class of '44 to present the "Sport Dancef, Good music, refreshments, and a real friendliness among the members of the two classes and the rest of the student guests helped to make this affair outstanding. A high spot of this latter dance was the presentation of awards to the two guests who wore the most novel and the sportiest mode of dress. The real social peak of the junior year, and for that matter of each junior class, was the junior Prom. This year the big event was held at the Hotel Delmonico on Saturday evening, April 6. The smooth and danceable music of the affable johnny McGee and the excellent dinner that was served during the evening cer- tainly made this Prom one to be long remem- bered by all the members of the Class of '42. To bring the year to a close, the class again united its resources, this time with all the other evening classes, to offer the All-Evening Commerce Spring Festival to the evening stu- dent body. This affair was as successful as its winter predecessor, the Christmas Party. It was a Fitting close to a very active year by the class in student activities. Reading Clockwise C. Harry Blomquist H.

SUZAN CRESPIN NEVER before did any incoming freshmen class display as much spirit and enthusi- asm as did the day Class of 213. Washington Square Park provided the site for the annual frosh-soph tug of war. Accept- ing the sophomores' challenge, the freshmen defeated the sophs easily. Leading the power- ful attack were two Class of '43 stalwarts, Stan Reichgoot and Marvin Rosenblum. The van- quished sophomores were compelled to climb the statue of Garibaldi and kiss the weathered toe. In keeping with the fine spirit already dis- played, the Class of '43 were quick to initiate a project never before attempted at school. The innovation was a class paper, " '43", which was printed and distributed free of charge to all who attended the class meetings each week. This official organ of the class soon was the object of envy of all of the upper classes. " '43" was edited by 'Sheldon Comparte, Chip Anthony, and Lenny VVainick. The smoker and the hen party were the two most important affairs of the fall term. Over one hundred boys and girls attended these affairs. The smoker, held at Firenze's, was a lively and entertaining party. The chairmen and toastmasters of the evening were Jim Stomber and Bill Hartman. They provided a Reading Clockwise Sue Crespin Jeannette Pearlman Stanley Reichgott 11 fine chicken dinner, and well-known guest stars were present. Heading the list of speakers was Dick Fishell, former All-American and now a prominent sports announcer on the radio. Mr. Hayward J. I-Iolbert and Harry Landesman also spoke. The hen party was visited by the boys at the conclusion of the smoker and a frivolous snake dance halted all traffic on Broadway for fifteen minutes. Carol Laurin and Mildred Gottlieb were chairmen of the hen party. A turkey dinner was served, and N. Y. U. gold keys were dis- tributed as souvenirs. Guest speakers included Mr. Yvigglesworth, Clarice Epstein, Ruth Downing, and Miss Gladys Reutiman. Music and dancing rounded out a perfect evening. A successful roller skating party also added to the varied program of the Freshman Class. Chairmen of the skating get-together were Bud Fisher and Lucille Cohen. The Frosh Hop was held in the Sky Gardens and Terrace Roof of the Belmont Plaza Hotel. The Chairmen were Bernard Sherman and Chip Anthony. I943 lf, .

DRASHPIL II6 URING the year 1939-40, the Evening Class of 1943 again played an important part in the activities of the evening classes in the School of Commerce. As the year pro- gressed, a larger number of students were able to attend the regular weekly class meet- ings, and, as a result, better work was ac- complished, and closer cooperation between class members was maintained. Factors, which were of real value in this work, were the fine coordination of the other evening classes with the Class of '43 and the inspiring guidance of Professor Robert B. Jenkins. The social season was opened with a XVed- nesday night dance in Lassman Hall during the second week in November. Soon after- ward, the class held its "Snow Ball" in the Green Room on the Hrst Saturday evening in December. Despite the inclement weather on the night of the second affair, the party was considered a social success. With the arrival of the year-end holidays and the final examinations, the class tempor- arily discontinued its participation in student Reading Clockwise Frank Capel Franklin Lynford Frederick Schnieder activities. However, with the advent of the new semester, the class found its meetings doubly successful because of a change in the schedule of meeting nights. On March 13, the class presented an in- novation in the School of Commerce activi- ties. It sponsored a basketball game and dance, featuring the newly-organized Corn- merce-Mfashington Square Evening Basketball Team against the Fordham School of Business quintet. The game was greeted with great enthusiasm by the student body, as was the dancing that followed later. This event, under the sponsorship of the Class of '43, was another indication of the real interest of the evening student body in extra-curricular activities- both social and athletic. The year was iittingly brought to a close by the successful Sophomore Hop, which was held at the Hotel Ambassador on Saturday evening, April 13. The class, together with the lower evening sophomore class of ,44 and the day Sophomore class, turned out and had an enjoyable evening. .....m 117 JACK BEHL President President . . .

Many members of the class par- ticipated actively in the administration and operation of school functions. President jack Behl and Treasurer Milton Lunenfeld were the two Evening Student Council representa- tives and administered efhciently in that capacity. These two men also served on the Social Committee of the Council and were closely associated with the numerous, enjoy- able affairs sponsored by the Council during the year. Other members of the class were equally prominent in extra-curricular activi- ties. Lassman Hall socials and dances were par- ticularly well attended. The most popular social was the Halloween party in the latter part of October. Novel entertainment by So- cial Chairman Herbert Braslaw and refresh- ments of cider and doughnuts made this party a treat for the students. In the spring semester, the class combined with the lower junior class to sponsor a smoker at which the faculty members and students were able to become better acquainted. According to the many comments made after the affair, this smoker was certainly well enjoyed. Reading Clockwise Phil Oetting Dan Tebowitz Herbert Braslaw 11 The Class of '44 hastily organized a bowling team to meet the challenges from the other classes, and it successfully upheld the name of '44 against the strong opposition of its opponents. The class also took an active interest in school affairs, in addition to the class pro- gram. The Evening Student Council dinner, which was held at Longchamps Restaurant, and the All-University Frolic saw a large turn- out from the Class of '44. The annual Hop for the sophomore classes was held this year at the Ambassador Hotel on April 13. As in the other events of the year, the class actively en- gaged in both the preparation for the Hop and the fun and frolic on the night of the Hop. In all sincerity, it can be said that the success of the Class of '44 has been due to the willingness of each member of the class to cooperate with the officers, and the fine good- will which was created by the class in its re- lations with other evening classes. Such co- operation and good work portend a very bright future for the Class of 1944. 1945 E. HARVEY BERKOYVITZ President President .... First Vice-President . Seconcl Vice-President . Secretary ....

BALLANCE EMBERS of the class of 1945 were regally welcomed into the School and the Uni- versity by the faculty and the student admini- strators at the annual freshman orientation smoker in Lassman Hall on October 1 1. Here they received a most sincere welcome from members of the faculty and an invitation from the president of the Evening Student Council to assume, as soon as possible, their rightful position in the conduct of the School's student activities. Short and inspiring talks were pre- sented by Deans john T. Madden, Herbert M. Schiffer, and Edward KI. Kildulf, Professors Bader and jenkins, and Mr. Holbcrt. There was little doubt after this smoker that these brief talks of welcome were effective in helping the evening students to orient themselves to their new life. From this time on, the members of the Class set out to leave their good mark on the records of the school. Fully imbued with the spirit of school life, the Class of '45 held its election on officers. The development of a number of wholly un- expected and surprising circumstances delayed temporarily the final selection of the Class officers, but after all obstacles had been sur- mounted, the first president of the Evening Class of '45 immediately assumed leadership and introduced the Class into active partici- pation in student affairs. The first official activity on the part of the Class was its participation in the All-Com- merce Smoker sponsored by the Evening Stu- dent Council at Longchamps Restaurant. Reading Clockwise Irving Fine Edmund Davidson Arthur Berkowitz 121 Many members of the Class were able to become better acquainted at this smoker and to plan the events of the Class for the coming year. In February, the Class held its first social affair in Lassman Hall. Through the initiative of its members and cooperation from the upper classmen, this dance was well received by the rest of the School. On Xflfednesday, April 3, the class sponsored an affair that has had few predecessors. This affair featured a basketball game between the CO1TlHl61'CC--l'V2lSl1lI1gKOH Square Basketball Team and the Fordham School of Education Team. Music for dancing between the halves and after the game made this event, held in the School of Education gymnasium, a novel and really appreciated affair in the evening School. The Frosh Hop this year was held on Sat- urday evening, May 4, at the "Casino-in-the Air" of the Belmont Plaza Hotel.

II I I "0LD EW YURK UNIVER l'l'Y'l I-IEN the School OllC011l1I16l'CC was organized in 1900, tl1e student niembership consisted o11ly ol' business men wl1o took tl1eir courses i11 the evenings. But even though the students for the most part were busy during the day in their various business activities, they initiated many forms ol social, literary, and athletic enterprises. Gradually, as the Day Division grew in size, interest in clubs and fraternities also grew. One fraternity was organized in 1905, another in 1907, and in 1932, each claimed 40 or more chapters in other universities having schools of business. The First of the series of ycarbooks was published by the class of 1908. Debating teams were organized and engaged in forensic combat with teams from the even- ing school at the University of Pennsylvania. V In 1931 the first Freshman Yveek was held, during which the entering class of some 600 Day students were given personal counsel by members of the faculty, includi11g all the chairmen of departments, concerning their programs and student activities. It is difhcult to enumerate activities which were formulated at the School of Commerce. Some of the clubs founded' by students were short- lived, but many have prospered and in 1937, 51 recognized fraternities were active. One student enterprise to which the Con11nerce Students contributed, The New York Unizfersily Daily News, was organized in 1922, rising out of the lfVKlShl7'IglO7I Sqtmre Dealer. The latter was initiated e11tirely by a group of Com- merce students in 1913 for the avowed purpose of "creating a spirit of unity and friendship among the several schools" and of "helping the building of a bigger, better and busier New York University." At the present tin1e, under the direction of the Student Council, each major department has organized its own club catering to the interests of students taking its courses. In addition, highly specialized organizations, concerning them- selves with limited aspects ol a subject, l1ave made their appearance. Mlell-known among these are the Broadcasting Club, the Connoisseurs Club, and the Philatelic Society. Further student activities consist ol athletics, intramurals, interclass tourna- ments, class dances, hen parties and smokers, annual promenades and class hops.

This body is pre- sided over by the officers ofthe Day Organization, who are elected annual- ly, and is composed of representatives from the various classes, the Day League of YVOIHC11, and the Commerce Bulletin. Mr. Hayward Holbert is the faculty adviser. During the past year, the main objective of the Day Student Council has been to increase the efli- ciency of student activ- ities in the School. In accomplishing this task, the Council has encour- aged student suggestions. Under Abraham Beer, the Council has pro- vided many innovations for the school. This year the class and Day Org elections were com- bined to save time and expense. The IQSQ-40 Council established an Ac- counting Tutor Council. The purpose of this council was to aid accounting majors. Out- standing students majoring in the held com- posed the council. A drive to get more students interested in extra-curricular activities was also sponsored by the Day Org. This took the form of a club - President . . Vice-President . Secretary .....

HOLEERT, Faculty Adviser 131 132 Evening Student Council THE Evening Student Council was highly successful in administer- ing tl1e activities of the evening students of the school of Commerce dur- ing the past year. Through the Hne work of President Harry Her- man, and the careful guidance of Professor Robert B. Jenkins, the faculty adviser, the coun- cil will long be remem- bered for its constant and constructive efiorts to improve conditions for the evening students in Commerce. Through the work of the Council, the faculty administration approved the designation of the South Study Hall as a memorial to Prof. John S. Morris, faculty adviser to the Evening Stu- dent Councils during the years 193o to 1938. The Hall was completely renovated and Inade available to the recognized student organiza- tions in the School of Commerce for use as an auditorium. The formal dedication cere- monies of the Hall were held in April. The Prof, John S. Morris Public Speaking Award, the plans for which were formulated by the 1938-39 Council, was accepted in its final form by the Council and the School Administration. The first presentation of this award will be HARRY HERMAN President made next year. The Council also gave due consideration to the many suggestions offered it by the student body and took definite action on the promises made at election time. Some of the more outstanding ft accomplishments of the Council were: establish- ment of an Evening 'Sec- tion in the Commerce Bulletin, investigation of the feasibility of in- stituting compulsory h e al th examinationsg formulation of a more complete and interesting social program for indi- vidual classesg and or- ganization Of an Evening Commerce Basketball Team, which later in the year was combined with the Yflfashington Square Evening College team.

THE Wall Street Student Organization again completed a highly successful year by work- ing intensively for the students of the Wfall Street Division. Through this organization, the students of Wall Street have enjoyed a varied and interesting program of extra-cur- ricular activity DR. NoEL D. GODEREY During the school year four smokers were held in the University's buildings at 90 Trinity Place. Men from the fields of business finance and government were invited to address the members of the student body. The first smoker was held on October 18, when Charles Hodges of the University faculty spoke on "Poland and the 1939 Crisis." After the meeting the students enjoyed refreshments and had the opportunity to chat informally with Dr. Hodges. The second smoker was held on the evening of November 27 when Mr. G. A. Paulson, special agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, spoke on "The VVork and Functions of the F. B. I." In conjunction with Religion-in-Life week held at the lfVashington Square Center, W'all Street held its third smoker on February 28. Dr. T. Z. Koo, secretary of the M7orld's Student Christian Association, addressed a large group of students on "The Conflicts in the Far East." The last smoker of the year was held on Tues- day evening, April 16, when Mr. A. P. Link, instructor of psychology at Mfashington Square College, presented a lecture on and an actual demonstration of hypnotism. This meeting proved to be one of the most enjoyable of the year. The Division was also active socially. The second annual fall prom was held in the Colonial Room of Hotel Park Central on Sat- urday evening, December 2. In spite of the loss of the football game during the afternoon to Reading Clockwise Paul Surface Walter Simes William Dressel 135 Fordham, and the inclement weather, the Prom was the scene of much informal fun in formal dress. The annual spring formal was held in the Grill Room of the Hotel Commo- dore on Saturday evening, April 27. This dance was extremely well attended and proved to be a high light in the social activity of the Wall Street Division. Bill Dressel and Hal Clark had the full responsibility for these affairs. In the athletic phase of student activities, the Organization sponsored a bowling tourna- ment during November and December. Dan Burke won the title of the best bowler of the l'Vall Street Division. The past year witnessed the revival of the Wall Strertcr, the bi-monthly publication of the X'Vall Street Division. The Wall Streeter contained articles by Dr. A. Wellington Tay- lor, Dr. Paul V. Horn, and Dr. Noel D. God- frey. Information on and news of students at the Division were also contained in this publi- cation. Turner Trippe and Paul Surface were in charge of this work, and the enthusiasm was acknowledgment of their success. RU'TI'I Dowm NG Day League of Women H.. ,fix President EVELYN SIROTIN Vice-President OFFICERS President . . . RUTH DOWNING Vice-President . . EVELYN SIROTIN Senior Delegate . Treasurer .... Recording Secretary . . Corresponding Secretary . HE League of Women is an organization composed of all Women students of the School of Commerce, who automatically be- come members upon registration. The purpose of the League is to encourage a spirit of friend- liness among the Women students and to foster their friendships. In this respect it supplies a vital need, since a school without a campus has a need for a cohesive force such as the League for Women. 1 . IRMA HERBIAN . . AMY PRICE . MIRIAM RIVKIN . RosLYN KOMACK To accomplish its aims, members of the League plan a social program of activities under the guidance of Miss Gladys H. Reuti- man, the adviser to women. For each affair there are two chairmen who are assigned by a volunteer committee. All the women in the School of Commerce are invited to the affairs since it is for them that the League of Women functions. Each semester the first activity is the big sister tea. A committee of junior and senior girls under the direction of two senior chair- men is organized to act as big sisters to the in- coming freshman girls, each girl being assigned a big sister to whom she may come for advice. In this way the new students are given the opportunity to become acquainted with the activities of the League, as well as a chance to meet their fellow students. As a result of these big sister teas, many close friendships have arisen, which have extended beyond college years. Especially popular this year were the after- noon faculty socials at which girls and profes- sors spend an enjoyable afternoon becoming more closely acquainted than is possible in the classrooms. During the year every girl is in- vited to at least one tea, that of the department in which she is majoring. Another important function of the League is the frosh-soph week, during which there occurs a series of athletic games between the freshmen and sophomores. These events are intended to initiate the freshmen into the athletic activities of the school and to serve as an incentive for further participation in League of VVomen activities. Again this year an open house dance was sponsored, which was for the purpose of rais- ing money for the Emily Foster Award. The admission was ten cents and the affair attracted over 150 students. Favors were distributed. Other activities of the hrst term were the annual Christmas party for the children of the Judson Health Center, at which dolls decor- ated and dressed by girls in the League of lfVomen were presented to each child, and an open meeting at which Miss May DePinna of the DePinna Model Agency addressed the girls. The second term's activities included the annual mother-daughter tea, a cake and candy sale, a game and card p3.1'1Ly, and a second big sister tea for February freshmen. An innovation in the League's activities this year was a tea, which was given in honor of the wives of the faculty. At this tea a song recital was presented by Josephine Maetre, making it one of the outstanding social func- tions sponsored by the League of Women.

They are held from 8 to 10, so that those stu- dents having 6-8 classes may have an oppor- tunity to meet their friends after classes are over. Refreshments are served after the meet- ing. At the beginning of this year, the League held an informal upper-classmen party. The purpose was to acquaint the upper-classmen with the League. During the first week of each semester, a tea is held to acquaint the freshmen with the upper-classmen. There is also a Mother- Daughter tea, at which time the mothers of the students are invited to see the school and be the guests of the League. This year, the League gave a leap year dance, in addition to the annual football dance. At the latter, the girls of the League played hostess to the Evening School, con- forming with all traditions of Leap Year. Through the efforts of the co-chairman, Ann Solomon and Rita Einkle, this affair was a great success, entertaining those students who partook of the hospitality of the league. A word of praise should be extended to Florence Sauer and Shirley Vfilkins for their excellent endeavors in making the poor child- ren of the Judson Health Center happy at Christmas time. Games, dolls, and novel re- freshments were provided for the children. A combined Day and Evening League of Reading Left to Right Leona Friegerg Miss Seidman 1 Women supper was held in March. Under the supervision of both the Day and Evening League Presidents, the supper was held in the Women's Lounge, which was attractively decorated for the occasion. About thirty-five girls attended. By far one of the most interesting features of the year 1939-40 was a series of talks given by Dr. Josephine Rathbone. Those talks touched upon topics of interest and import- ance to the women of the school. Miss Celia Raeder, a graduate of N.Y.U., is extended a note of thanks for her endeavors to make the Night League's meetings and teas more delightful. Miss Raeder, a concert pianist, has played at the Academy of Music, Carnegie Hall, and many other noted places. Each year the League of Women awards a scholarship of 325 to the girl doing the most outstanding work for the League and for the University. Last year it was awarded to Mary Callon. To wind up a very successful year, the League of l'Vomen gave a party for the Even- ing Council. A good time was enjoyed by all the guests. K 0 Br 2 I Beta GHIIIIHH Sigma NIQUE Zllllflllg all extra-curricular organizations in the School of Commerce ranks Beta Gamma Sigma. Membership in tl1is honorary fraternity is the highest scholastic attainment to which Commerce undergraduates may aspire. First organized i11 1907 at tl1e University of IVisconsin, Beta Gamma Sigma has gradually achieved 11atio11wide recognition until today its position and prestige in the held of commercial education correspond to those of Phi Beta Kappa in tl1e held ol classical education. Beta Gamma Sigma's national position is secured by tl1e fact tl1at it is tl1e only intercollegiate honorary fraternity recognized by tl1e National Association ol Collegiate Schools of Business. More than forty universities throughout the United States now have chapters of Beta Gamma Sigma. In 1933 tl1e Alpl1a Chapter of Delta Mu Delta, wl1icl1 for twenty years had served New York UIllYfC1'SlIj',S School of Commerce as a stimulus to, and as a reward for, scholastic excellence, was superseded by tl1e Delta of New York Chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma. Among the honorary members of Delta Mu Delta were such outstanding figures of the business world as John Ilfanamaker, Judge Elbert H. Gray, Daniel Guggenheim, Percy S. Straus, Thomas XV. Lamont, and David Sarnott. The avowed purposes of Beta Gamma Sigma are "to encourage and reward scholarship i11 commercial studies, to promote the advancement of education in the science of business, and to foster principles of integrity in business practice." Admission to membership is based solely on good moral character and high scholarship. The society annually elects to membership from among the highest ten percent of the senior class and tl1e highest two percent of tlIe junior class, those day and evening students who have the necessary qualihcations. These quali- fications consist of a worthy character and a scholastic standing of 4.5 honor credits. In the case of juniors at least 80 points of work must have been com- pleted. It is customary for the society to also elect each year to membership one member of the faculty. Dr. G. E. SeBoyar is permanent secretary, and Professor A. H. Rosenkampff is permanent treasurer of the Delta of New York Chapter. GRADUATES IRA CISIN MICHAEL D7ANGELO DOROTHY HEcToR HERMAN HOLZER NORMAN N. LOBENZ IRVING PLOTKIN 140 HAROLD ROBERTS LEINIS H.

Tappings to this fraternity are held at the last Day Org meeting of the year. Twelve seniors and one junior are inducted annuallyg the junior thus honored automatically assumes the presidency for the coming academic year. One member of the faculty is inducted as a reward for his interest and active participation in all school affairs and student functions. Unlike many honorarics, Sphinx does not select its members on the basis of scholastic rating, but takes into consideration exceptional ability and outstand- ing service in extra-curricular activities. The first step in electing new candidates is the publication Of the list of eligible students in the college newspaper one week before the tapping ceremony. These candidates and all others who believe themselves qualihed to be chosen must submit records of their activities to the president Of Sphinx. The society then meets the evening before tapping to vote on the candidates. Voting is conducted by preferential ballot. The ballots are sealed and delivered to the Day student adviser. A few minutes before tapping actually takes place, votes are counted, and the results are given to the most recently elected members who then proceed with the ceremony. The identity of all prospective members is kept secret until the actual tapping occurs. 1939 MEMBERS 1940 MEMBERS NELSON COMBS EMANUEL XVAX LAXVRENCE SUTTON SIDNEY I-I.

Those junior girls who consider themselves potential members are asked to submit their qualifications based on extra-curricular activity during their first three years at college. The active members discuss these qualifications with Miss Gladys Reutiman, adviser to women, who is the permanent secretary. A two-thirds vote of the members is necessary for election. Those six who are most deserving of membership are tapped in the spring at a Student Council meeting open to all students. Shortly after, the annual dinner is held for the new and old members at which time the pledge is taken, pins are distributed, and ofhcers for the next year are elected. The aims of Sigma Eta Phi are to encourage women students to participate in extra-curricular activities and to establish a sisterhood for girls who are active in student affairs. In its three years of existence in the School of Commerce, Sigma Eta Phi has been receiving more and more recognition as a prominent incentive for active women students. 1939-1940 OFFICERS v President . . . .

They are selected from three different groupsg first, members of the Managing Board, who receive gold scrollsg second, members of the Associate Board, who are given silver scrollsg and third, members of the staff who are presented with certihcates. Only students who have displayed a commendable spirit of cooperation, conscientious effort, and ability in their respective positions are elected to membership in the Violet Scroll. It is customary to present gold scrolls only to those students On the Managing Board who are seniors, but when outstanding work is done, this rule may be waived and deserving students honored with a gold scroll. Juniors on the Asso- ciate Board are usually the only students to receive silver scrolls, but Sophomores who have demonstrated ther htness may be awarded a silver scroll.

D. selects men Irom marketing students who are actively interested in advertising, who have superior scholastic standing, and who are in sympathy with, and will lend active support to, the fraternity's ideals and aims. There are two elections to membership per year-One in the fall and one in the spring. Several weeks prior to each election, a smoker is held for prospective members. Each year from two to four prominent advertising men, who have gained their positions as a result of achievements, are invited to become professional members of Alpha Delta Sigma. Such men as Raymond Rubicam, Ralph Starr Butler, James D. NlOO1lCy, Lowell Thomas, Paul T. Cherington, Edgar Kobak, Abbott Kimball, and Otto Kleppner comprise the fraternity's professional mem- bership. They have shown continued willingness to lend their active support long after initiation.

Tl1eir objects in forming the fraternity were to unite women engaging in or planning to engage in journalismg to confer honor upon women who distinguish themselves in journalism or letters, to achieve definite standards in journalism and lettersg to improve working conditions for women in these fields, and to inspire members to greater individual effort. Tau chapter of Theta Sigma Phi was installed at the School of Commerce, Accounts, and Finance in 1931 replacing the local Stick O'Type organization. Since its inception, the members of Theta Sigma Phi have upheld the ideals of the fraternity by choosing new members each year of superior scholarship and fine character. The new members are chosen from ju11iors, seniors, and graduate students, majoring or specializing in journalism and advertising. The proposed member must receive tl1e recommendation of the chairman of the journalism Department a11d that of tl1e faculty adviser. In addition, the name of the new n1e1nber n1ust be considered at three con- secutive meetings before it is voted upon by secret ballot. One negative vote bars the candidate from membership. The insignia of Theta Sigma Phi is a Roman gold badge in the form of a linotype matrix, bearing the Greek letters Theta, Sigma, and Phi, together with the emblematic torch. Twice a month, regular professional meetings are held in the journalism office in the South Building. Topics pertinent to journalism and Hction writing are discussed, and prominent guests are invited to speak.

Glee Club THE Varsity Glee Club of New York University came into ex- istence in 1833 u11der the direction of Dr. Joseph Bryan. For IIIIIC years he held tl1is position and led tl1e group into musical glory- a glory that l1as since been repeated by Prof. Alfred M. Greenfield. During the "Eighties" and "Nineties", the Glee Club gave concerts in Chickering Hall, a11d later in the Madison Square Garden Concert Hall. In 1903 two undergraduates, Deems Taylor Hllfl Reinald NVerrenrath, joined tl1e Glee Club and gave the already famous group a stronger taste of fame. Their interest in the Glee Club l1as 11ot waned, and they still keep in contact with it. The program for the year was inaugurated by a concert at Katonah High School on October 27. Another concert on the schedule was held on November 15 at Finch Junior College. The following engagements completed the Fall Scheduleg a home per- formance at the University Heights on November 19, and a con- cert for the Con1111erce Alumni Association on December 1. On December 9, together with the Hall of Fame singers and the Faculty Glee Club, the undergraduate group presented its annual concert in Town Hall. A concert with Rutgers and the Columbia Glee Clubs took place on March 11. Another Town Hall recital with the same two groups was held on March 16. The spring season was ushered in by a spring song festival, May 4, at the Heights. The Varsity Glee Club ranks high among the college singing groups of the nation. In 1931 it was National Inter-Collegiate Glee Club Champion. In 1933 it was the Metropolitan Inter- Collegiate Glee Club Champion. It also has had the distinction of being the only college glee club ever to have appeared with New York Philharmonic Society in a joint concert. This was in December 1933. Professor Greenfield conducts this group of fifty male singers, drawn mainly from the University Heights and the School of Commerce branches of the University. 156 an, 4vv Clubs' Coordinating Committee HE Clubs' Coordinating Committee is an outgrowth of the Committee of Commercial Clubs, which was organized in 1934 with the intention of acting as a "clearing house" for all clubs in the School of Commerce. In order to fulfill this purpose, the Clubs' Coordinating Committee has invited the clubs of the school to send delegates to the meetings of the organization. Here the representatives gather to discuss problems which confront the numerous clubs and to confer with the Student Council on proposals made by them. During its Iirst year of existence, the Clubs' Coordinating Committee has furthered the primary purpose of its predecessor -to serve as a stimulus for the formation of many new clubs and to increase membership in already established groups. The pro- gram of the Clubs' Coordinating Committee was climaxed this year by a "Club lfVeek" in February. Special publicity was given the various clubs in the Commerce Bulletin during this week, and a social in Lassman Hall was held in an endeavor to create further interest in clubs at Commerce. In accordance with its desire to aid Commerce clubs in carry- ing on their functions in the most efficient manner possible, the Clubs' Coordinating Committee, with the cooperation of the Day Student Council, has made it possible again for organizations to use the classroom blackboarcls for announcements of their meetings. A special reserved blackboard section in every room is now available for use by all recognized clubs. A large glass- enclosed bulletin board has been substituted for the numerous signs that used to clutter up the lobby. The Executive Committee is an integral part of the struc- ture of the Clubs' Coordinating Committee. This group not only makes contact with the various delegates, but it assists individual clubs with their particular problems. The Chairman of the committee is Howard Fox. 157 N' -A., gt wig I ,4.

Other aims of the club are to foster relationsliips between students of accounting and their professors, to acquaint these students with practicing accountants, and to stimulate an interest in academic accounting and profes- sional accounting. Professor Arthur H. Rosenkampff, chairman of the Account- ing Department, is faculty adviser to the club, and it has been due to Professor RosenkampFf's excellent advice and tutelage that thc club l1as enjoyed the reputation of being one of the most active clubs at tl1e school. As a result of its greatly increased activity, the Accounting Club has one of the largest memberships of any club in Commerce. The Accounting Ledger, the club's oflicial organ, is one of the best publications of its kind in the country. In this quarterly publication, student members and active accountants contribute 158 articles dealing with the held of accounting. The Accounting Club is one of the few clubs at Commerce that has such a publication. Professor A. H. Rosenkampff spoke before the group in September on "Opportunities for Accountants." Other speakers appearing before the club have been: Martin Jacoby, C.P.A.3 Abraham Levy, of Gray, Schecter 8: Co., Dean John T. Madden, Lewis Gluich, of Iflfanna- maker's, Charles C. Towns, of Loomis, Suffern Sc Fernaldg IValter Dean, member of C.P.A. Examining Board, and Ira H. Shur, of S. D. Leidesforf ik Co. Everett Livsey, of the Dime Savings Bank, spoke on "Opportunities in Bank Accountingvg and in April Miss Ger- trude Priester, C.P.A., spoke on A'Opportuni- ties for YVomen in Accounting." Field trips were made to the New York lfVorld's Fair, the International Business Ma- chines Company, the Chase National Bank, and the Metropolitan Life Insurance Com- pany. Two Lassman Hall socials and an annual dinner at a prominent New York hotel com- posed the social program of the group. Ber- nard Tobacman handled the arrangements for these affairs. The Accountant's Council, an honorary soc- iety for accounting students, has been organ- ized by the more active members of the club. The purpose of the Council is "to bestow some honor upon those students who have shown themselves to be capable of high scholarship and who have been active on the affairs of the New York U. Accounting Club, and to set up an organization to which members can come as undergraduates and alumni to discuss matters which concern the profession of Certi- hed Public Accountants, to which they aspire." This organization is separate from the Ac- counting Club, and all accounting students, day and night, whether club members or not, are eligible for membership. Charter members of the Accountant's Coun- cil are: Lawrence Burdick, Gustave Greider, Florence Cohen, Irving Himowitz, Rose New- man, and Professor Gould L. Harris. The Accounting Club meets weekly and the group boasts a membership of over forty ac- counting students. OFFICERS President ......... ..... . .jack Silverman Vice-President ..........,. ........

Boasting a membership of one hundred and ten students and a program of professional and social activities as varied and successful as that of any club in Commerce, the Man- agement Club rightfully deserves its envied reputation in the school. The purposes for which the club was founded are to supple- ment members' classroom instruction with suitable educational and social activities, as well as to keep students abreast of recent trends and developments in the held of management. This latter aim is realized by presenting to the members prominent speakers of recognized authority in the field. In addition, motion pictures which illustrate the principles of good management in actual operation are shown. Most successful of the club's professional activities, however, are the many field trips on which members visit plants of outstanding industrial enterprises. Here they have 160 an opportunity to see in person the practical application of what they have learned from lecture and textbook. During the twenty years olf its existence, the Management Club has been an important factor in the extra-curricular lile at the School ol Commerce. The enthusiasm with which its membership supported the numerous activi- ties of the club has been responsible for its present esteemed position. Inspired leadership and an active membership seem to insure a continuance of its progressive part in student activities. A number of field trips were made this year to a wide variety of industrial plants. These trips, often lasting an entire day. in- cluded tours of the factories under the guid- ance ol' company employees. Visits were made to Ruppert's Brewery, the Radio Corporation of America factory in Camden. N. EI., and the plants of the Bristol-Meyers. General Motors. Ford. and Squibb companies. A tour of the Hotel New Yorker was also included in the year's held trip itinerary. ln the realization of its aim to provide social activities for members, the Management Club has been equally successful during the past year. The students attended performances of two stage productions, "A Farm Has Three Echoes" and "See My Lawyer." The Management Club has successfully published their hrst publication-The Man- agement Circle. Three issues of the photo- lithographed magazine have appeared this year. At the beginning of the school year the Hrst issue was published. It was a hfteen page issue and Grover A. Mfhalen, president of the New York lr'Vorld's Fair, in a letter to the editor said in part, "I am writing these few words in hearty approval of the policies and objectives of your new campus publication, "The Management Circle." May 1 the hnal issue of the Management Circle appeared. Paul V. McNutt, Federal Security Administratorg Senator Robert F. XfVagner, of New York: and Norman Thomas, National Chairman of the Socialist Party were contributors. Mr. McNutt's article dealt with the problems of capital and labor. Senator Burton K. YVheeler assisted Mr. McNutt in writing this article. Senator Hlagner discussed the Hlages and Hours Act: and Norman Thomas wrote on, "The Y'Vorker Under Social- ism. The First two issues of the year were edited by Esther Rabinovich. The May issue was edited by XfVillis Briddle.

A6979 H' Triad League HE Triad League, advertising club of the New York University School of Commerce, Accounts and Finance, strives to bring its members closer to a prac- tical understanding of marketing and its problems. It affords an opportunity for students who are inter- ested in marketing and advertising, and all their varied phases, to gain a further knowledge of these Fields and supplement their classroom work. Ill 1913, Professor George Burton Hotchkiss and a group of marketing students founded the Triad League. Today, after twenty-seven years the founders of Triad's ideals of Truth, Art, and Science in Advertising, find themselves in eminent positions in the advertising field. Douglas Taylor is vice-president of Prizziefs Ink, Bernard Lichtenberg is president of the Institute of Public Relationsg Abbott Kimball is owner of an advertising agency, john L. Anderson is 162 secretary and treasurer of McCann-Erickson, Incorporated, Val A. Schmitz is advertising director of the Schafer Brewing Company, and Otto Kleppner has an agency of his own. This year has been an especially active one for the Triad League. The program has in- cluded many outstanding men. and the topics of discussion have been varied. At the hrst meeting ol the season. in October, Louis E. Hirshorn, director ol advertising and sales promotion for the New York Merchandise Co., Inc., spoke on "Your Chosen Career", and in the early 132111 of November, Fen K. Doscher, sales manager of the Lily Tulip Cup Corpora- tion, spoke on "Personal Salesmanshipf' Other speakers have included Maurice M. Goldberger, assistant advertising manager of Bulova l'Vatch Company, whose topic for dis- cussion was "the Creation, Execution, and Pro- duction of Advertisingf' and John YV. X'Viley, vice-president of Fuller and Smith and Ross, Inc,. who presented several skits with the cooperation of a Triad member on The Methods of Copy Testing. The second semester was started with a talk presented by L. Rohe YfValter, advertising manager of Flintkote Company, on "Direct Mail Advertising." The most unusual meeting held this year consisted of an "Information Please" program on advertising. The quiz meeting was presided over by Eleanor Paris, production manager of Conover Mast Corpor- ation. Other "experts" included H. Crandall, Art director of Maclfadden Publications, Carleton Spier, vice-president of Batten, Bar- ton, Durstine K Osborn, Inc., Helen Wilcox, promotion, advertising, and publicity repre- sentative, A. Alexander, president of the Ma- jestic Engraving Corporation, and Lawrence Jacobson, of R. L. Polk Company.

Coveney Company, on "How To Get People Excited", and one led by Mfalter A. Lowen on "Personal Relations." The Triad League completed its activities with a dinner on May 24 at the Advertising Club of New York. The dinner was in honor of Professor Thomas B. Stanley, of the Mar- keting Department. Guest speakers included Dr. Hugh E. Agnew, Professor George B. Hotchkiss, and Bruce Rogers, renowned type designer. The President of Triad is Clarice Epstein. 163 .4 9 1-1- I b ,zh I g Retalllng Club I A I L I L . ll . . it B l 4.3.5 .", A,V, E 9 R lf -T J ', '!", 'AE .L-VD .R I ' X I ri UZQQA, 0 HE Retailing Club is one of the largest, most ac- D . A D 5 Wig. tive clubs at the School of Commerce. Its roster numbcrs about ioo members. There are about twenty ff. or thirtx additional students who attend meetings at infrequent intervals. The Retailing Club was formed in 1936 to provide an organization which would bind together students of retailing. ln addition its purpose is to give these students thc opportunity of becoming better ac- quainted with the members of the faculty and business men of the held. Since its inception, the club has grown steadily in membership and widened its scope of activities. The present membership is the largest in the club's history. Its activities are varied and of interest to the retailing majors and minors who comprise the club membership. During the past year, the Retailing Club has had several excellent speakers at its social meetings. Mr. Michael Schapp, president of Bloomingdale's, was guest speaker at the first meeting of the year, which was held in Lassman Hall. Mr. Schapp discussed merchandising and the changing function of the buyer in retailing today. The meeting was followed by dancing, an innovation which was enjoyed by all. The second meeting of the year was honored by the presence of Mr. A. H. Klubock, comptroller of the Mangel Stores, who addressed the group on chain store merchandising and its problems. At the third social meeting of the year, the Retailing Club presented Miss Charlotte Mfilkinson, fashion consultant at R. H. Macy Sc Co., who spoke on "Fashions to Fit Your Personality and Your Purse." This talk was presented in a most interesting manner with miniature models and with articles of clothing from the stock of R. H. Macy. Next, the Retailing Club sponsored Mr. Leonard Ginsberg, president and general manager of Hearn's. Mr. Ginsberg traced the development of Hearn's from a small dry goods store to the large department store it is today. Other speakers who addressed the club during the year included Paul Murphy, Miss Bess Bloodworth, H. X. Salzburger, and Samuel Reyburn. Mr. Murphy, advertising manager of Loeser's, addressed the club on the role of advertising in retailing. Miss Bloodworth, personnel director of Namm's, spoke on the workings of the Personnel Department and the necessary qualifications for jobs today. Mr. Salzburger, merchandise manager of Bloomingdale's, spoke on new trends in merchandising today. Mr. Samuel Reyburn, chairman of the Board of Directors of Associated Dry Goods Stores, Inc., spoke at the final dinner on the changes in retailing and the current trends. Perhaps the greatest accomplishment of the Retailing Club during the year was publishing a magazine, The Retailer, as an organ of the club. This periodical appeared four times during the year. It presented vital news about the field of retailing, the School of Retailing, and the club itself. It was distributed free of charge to all members of the club and to students in retailing classes. The Retailing Club closed its most successful year by holding a hnal banquet, at which many assembled to say farewell to graduating seniors and to the fourth year of the Retailing Club. The President of the Club is Sidney H. Miller. 165 A 1 Jr IWWIHMIHI f fl W' ff X fa'f5'n 79 5 5 sw? ml-im... Secretarial Club HE Secretarial Club was formed in the fall of 1938 under the direction of Professor Anne Corrigan, chairman of the Secre- tarial Studies Department. Since that time the club has been making steady progress, acquiring new members and commanding the respect of the larger, longer established organizations. VVith the cooperation of the Secretarial Studies Department, a well organized program of activities has been planned. The two main objectives of the club are to promote harmonious relations between the students and faculty of the Secretarial Department, and to supplement the formal program of training in secretarial studies with outside activities that are of interest to prospective secretarial workers. In order to show its members the application of many secre- tarial studies theories, the club has toured various business places of interest in the city. For example, several members made a trip through the Personnel Department of R. H. Macy and Co1npany. Later in the term, a group from the club visited the A. B. Dick Company to see the mimeographing process from beginning to end. Company guides conducted the members through the plant, explaining the most important steps. To complete its schedule of trips, the club visited the lfVorld's Fair, particularly the Admin- istration Building. As a supplement to the professional activities of the organiza- tion, social functions during this past year included a bridge party, a series of informal teas, and a formal dance. In addition, a theatre party was held at the stage production of The Male Animal. Membership in this organization has been limited to students who are majoring in the Secretarial Department, and, as a result, the Secretarial Club is composed of a group of twenty students whose mutual interests bind them together in striving for a common goal-success in the secretarial profession. The President of the Club is Edythe Saperstone. 166 Sorors HE youngest organization in the School of Commerce, the Sorors Club, was founded in 1938 for the purpose of fulfilling a long felt need - to provide a common meeting ground for wo- men who are vitally interested in the theatre, in worthwhile current literature, and in present day movements and problems effecting the world. Although the women of the school receive adequate formal training and mental stimulus through the pursuit of their class- room work, the founders of the society believed that an organiza- tion Which would supplement scholastic endeavors and enrich particularly their academic knowledge was needed. Since its acceptance as a recognized club, the Sorors has progressed rapidly, until today, less than two years after its founding, it has become well-known throughout the school as one of the most active Commerce organizations. In order to retain a well-rounded quota of members, the organization is made up of six seniors and six juniors. New members are drawn from the upper half of the sophomore class during the spring semester. The Sorors Club meets twice a month, on Thursday evenings, at which time members hold discussions on topics of their own selection. Some of the subjects discussed during the past year were marriage, a third term possibility for President Roosevelt, the history of the movies, and classical versus commercial edu- cation. In addition, recent nction and non-fiction books are re- viewed by the members. Visits to the theatre, the ballet, and the opera have supple- mented the discussion activities of the Sorors Society in the past year. Helen Jo Scott Mann, associate professor in the Journalism Department, is the honorary faculty member of the organization. The President of the Club is Kay Allan. 167 5' Q, " s lv Long Island Club LTHOUGH organized only three years ago, the Long Island Club has progressed rapidly, increasing its membership to such an extent that it has now become established as a perma- nent organization in the School of Commerce. I With membership limited to students of the School of Commerce who reside in Long Island, this society was established to promote friendly relationships among Long Island students. In addition to participating actively in curricular and extra- curricular arfairs of the school, the Long Island Club has spon- sored many functions of interest to its members. Through participation in intra-club basket-ball and bowling, the members of the Long Island Club were able to extend their interests and acquaintances beyond the immediate scope of their various landmarks on Long Island, and trips to companies in the metropolitan area complete the club's program. As a still further indication of its far-reaching program, the Long Island Club is now engaged in plans to organize an alumni group to be composed ol' graduates of the School of Commerce who reside in Long Island. The President ol' the Club is Chester Keller. ,: 168 Mentor N 1925 the Mentor Club was organized by a small group of men students of the School of Commerce. Their purpose was to found an organization in which opinions pertinent to the problems of youth might be studied and discussed lfreely. Dr. Gerald E. SeBoyar and six students comprised the charter membership of the Mentor Club. All of these members were en- gaged in various forms of social work among boys. It was their intention to concern themselves with a study of conditions of social signihcance in that Held of service. As expressedin Article l of the constitution, the club's aim was "to select such topics as shall help us to see life and see it whole." The club visits the theatre many times throughout the year. "Ladies and Gentlemen" and "The Male Animal" were among the plays members saw during the past season. Another part of the club's activities consists of reading and reviewing worthwhile current books. Among those reviewed this year were Rebecca by Daphne Dulvlaurier and T00 tlI1IC'lI College by Stephen Leacock. At the close of each school year an annual reunion dinner is held for the dual purpose of renewing old friendships and inductv ing the newly elected ollicers into the club. The president for the past year was James Healey. sat 4 X s I J' ' 1 sh' , . K- 'fm fe . Y' 169 fam. Commerce-Ed Club N March 16, 1938, under the direction of Professor XfVilliam Storb Schlauch, the Commerce-Ed Club was founded. The nucleus consisted of a few students who were interested in keep- ing the students of commerce-education informed of new develop- ments in the commercial field of education. Another aim of the club was to inform members of the requirements for teaching commercial subjects. The club's objective may be summed up as follows: to discuss the problems in securing a license to teach commercial subjects in the high schools of the Stateg to give members an opportunity to hear addresses by prominent educators and faculty members on teaching problemsg to make trips to business houses and plants in order to obtain first-hand information on conducting businessg and to provide facilities for members to exchange busi- ness experiences with each other. These features of the club have proved valuable to studentsg consequently the club's member- ship has increased to thirty-five. All members must be students in Commerce. This year the club had the best roster of speakers in its history. Dr. Kline, of the Bureau of Appointments, spoke before the group explaining how the Bureau works and offering words of encouragement to the "business and commercial educators of to-morrow." One of the highlights of this year's program was a joint meeting with the Business-Ed Forum. The two groups con- gregated to hear Dr. Levy, of the Bureau of Appointments, for New York City. Professor Schlauch, the club's adviser, also spoke before the club. Variety marks the club's activities. A trip to the Remington- Rand Typewriter Company proved of special interest to club members, who were shown how a typewriter and a typewriter company operates. Dances and plant inspections completed the program for the year. The President of the Club is Charlotte Acker. 170 G6OgfHPh6F,S Club HE Geographers Club was formed in March, 1935, in response to the demand for an organization that would make possible a more extensive study of economic geographical problems than was provided lor in the classroom. Consequently, the purpose that now motivates the club is the promotion of a better knowledge of the geographical lforces influencing American society. Since its founding four years ago, the group has progressed rapidly until it is at present a recognized organization of 57 persons. The activities olf the Ceographer's Club are diversihed, including social and scholastic allairs. During the Past year many interesting held excursions have been made, which were enjoyable as well as educational. One of the outstanding trips on the club's schedule was the excursion to the YVilkes Barre Coal Mines and Breaker, on which Professor Alfred M. Nielsen, the adviser ol the club, pointed out interesting sights along the way. Other trips to Luray Caverns and the Hayden Planetarium helped to make the club's academic year an active one. As part of the year's program, motion pictures were shown at some of the meetings. In addition, guest speakers addressed the group at its meetings. The Geographers Club ended the year with a banquet at Gene's Restaurant on May 30. During the four years in which the Geographers Club has been functioning, members have had an opportunity to visit many sections of the eastern states in order to study economic geographical problems. Two years ago members traveled as far afield as the coal mines at Coalsdale, Pa., the New London Naval Base at M7illimantic, Conn., the nation's Capitol at Vlfashington, and the Naval Academy at Annapolis. Also, during the same year, they were addressed by Mr. Russell Welch, a member of the 1937 MacMillan expedition. The President of the Club was Nicholas Ponzio. 171 W, ,,,., V 1 , t J' ri. Fourth Estate Club HE FOURTH ESTATE CLUB was founded eleven years ago at the School of Commerce. Membership was originally limited to upper class men students majoring in journalism. At present, however, freshmen, co-eds, and majors and minors in journalism and marketing are eligible for membership. Activities ol the Fourth Estate Club include lectures by out- side speakers, who are active and prominent in the newspaper held, trips, and open forums. One phase of the club's activities is the sponsoring of a Best News Story Contest. The editors of the Commerce Bulletin, Ed- ttcfztiovt -87111, and TVIISIIZ-'71gl'OlI Sqzznre Iizzllefizz. submit what they consider the best news stories written for their respective papers during the course ol the year. The winners name is inscribed on the Best News Story Plaque on display in the Journalism ofhce.

Schools throughout New York City and the vicinity are invited to submit three successive editions of their paper for judging. The President of the Club is Nathan Kelne. 172 wgtfgyfq-fqq - Vistas. Q. f 'E' . 4 Connoisseurs Club HE Connoisseurs Club, composed of a group of graduate and undergraduate students who are interested in the Arts, is rapidly becoming one of the most noteworthy organizations in the School of Commerce. Membership is limited to those students of the School of Commerce who desire to study the various branches of the Arts. It is the desire of the club to bring its members into closer contact with a study of fine arts, paintings, sculpture, and archi- tecture. Consequently, the chief activities of the club consist of visits to art exhibitions, plays, and concerts. During the past year, the Connoisseurs Club has reviewed the exhibits of many famous artists, including Picasso and the old masters at the Gallery of Modern Art. In addition, the club has attended revivals of Gilbert and Sullivan operas, musical concerts at Carnegie Hall, and the stage production of "Abe Lincoln in Illinois." Still another function of the club is the coaching of members in the technique of European travel. Places of outstanding artistic and historical interest are included on convenient itineraries for members planning study and pleasure-trips. The Permanent President of the Club is Norbert Kunzel. 173 AP. f4 H allmr X Q X N ua l IPX ' 4 6 FOYUII! Finance Forum INCE its beginning in 1926 the Finance Forum has devoted its energies to increasing student interest in the fields of finance and investments. lt has enabled students of finance and banking to supplement the specialized training that they receive through the curricula. Another aim of the Forum is to provide a connecting link between students in the various fields of banking and Hnance. Its membership roster includes students of corporation finance, commercial and savings banking, investments, credit, insurance, and other related Helds of finance. Having a closely-knit group of members, the club has de- veloped, in the course of thirteen years, an active alumni asso- ciation. The alumni group is composed of past members of the Finance Forum who are now engaged in various Helds of finance. This alumni organization holds monthly meetings at a midtown hotel, where the members renew old acquaintanceships and dis- cuss various topics. The undergraduate club and the alumni jointly hold the animal banquet, which marks the close of every school year. Through its undergraduate activities and its cooperation with the alumni, the Finance Forum is able to offer a great deal of valuable and interesting information to the students of banking and Hnance. At its weekly meetings, the members of the club participate in spirited open-forum discussions relating to their varied interests. The club is addressed by officers and members of the alumni group and by members of the faculty of the School of Commerce. Among the faculty members who have addressed the club during the past year are: Professors David F. Jordan and Paul Studenski, and Mr. Arnold R. LaForce. The President of the Forum is James P. Healy. 174 Broadcasting Club HE Broadcasting Club is a recent addition to the roster of pro- fessional clubs and societies. Although it was founded in the latter part of 1938, it did 11ot achieve formal recognition from the Student Council until the spring of 1939. Its founders were Gordon A. Knapp, jr., Harold Shapiro, and Morton Schoenfeld. Professor lVilliam B. Dygert, of the Marketing Department, has been adviser to the group since its inception. His guidance has been of inestimable value to the welfare of the club. The purpose of the Broadcasting Club is to advance student interest Zlllll education in the held of radio planning, directing, sales promotion, and advertising through the mutual efforts of guest speakers and members of the club. The latest addition to the facilities of the club has been the use of the School of Com- merce radio studio, which is located on the eleventh floor of the Commerce Building. Completely equipped with talk back and other up-to-date mechanisms, the studio is used for rehearsal of student pro- grams. Broadcasts from the studio are also sent to various parts of the University. All programs are conceived, planned, written, directed, and produced by the students. The club has shown a deserved popularity among the stu- dents and has grown steadily from its original nucleus of three to an active membership of thirty-four. Active throughout the year, the Broadcasting Club meets every two weeks. Various problems confronting the radio world and general radio work are discussed. Guest speakers prominent in the field also address the group. Members are supplied each week with tickets to various broadcasts.

Editow'-in-Chief of the Violet and Violet News '77 1940 Vl0LE'l' PRAGUE CllIII.T7l'ZIl7?, A clvisory Commztzee HE commemoration of the lortieth anniversary of the School of Commerce was the underlying theme of the 1940 Violet. YVith this purpose in view, the editor and staff members attempted to produce a modern book with the tang of forty years of progress. Back records were relerred to, old pictures were found, and all sources of lact were sought out to give the student body of Commerce a true picture of the forty-year progress of the School of Commerce, Accounts and Finance. In order to act as an accurate and thorough source of information, the 1940 Violet includes the summation of the progress of each phase of the School of Commerce -faculty, student body, extra-curricular activities, and courses. This history appears on the dividing pages and is accompanied by new and old pictures of the respective phases.

Clever carricatures representative of various clubs and minor sports are included with the picture and write-up of each group. Increased use of unusual silhouette shots also lend to the informal atmosphere of the book. Another informal feature was the use of sweaters instead of drapes on the pictures of co-eds.

ISI Violet News LTHOUGH the School of Commerce is celebrating its fortieth anniversary and the Violet its thirty-second anniversary, the Violet News is but celebrating its fourth anniversary. Started as a means of publicising the Violet, the News is steadily becoming more and more valuable in informing the student body about the forthcoming yearbook. It has also created a friendly rivalry between the Violet and Commerce Bulletin staffs. This rivalry is the occasion for much friendly ribbing which takes the form of "dirt and dig columns." One four page six column issue was published this year. Two interesting bio- graphical sketches of Professor Lloyd E. Dewey, hnancial adviser to the Violet and Professor C. Hayes Sprague, technical adviser to the Violet, were presented in this issue. Professor Dewey's sketch was entitled, "From Cowboy and Sailor to College Professorw, and the sketch about Professor Sprague was headlined, "Prof. Sprague Practices lfVhat He Preaches-Art." The lead story of the issue dealt with the subject of the book's dedication- the fortieth anniversary of the School of Commerce. Hints about the historical features to be presented were given. The front page also carried a story on the history of the Commerce Violet, circulation statistics, and a story about the special section for the clubs and fraternities. A full page of sports was included in the four page issue. A general sports column, "Sport Tales", gave some random bits of sport information. Coverage of the Montclair-New York U. basketball game was also included. "The Hangovers Are Sissies" was the title of a satirical item "poking fun" at the Commerce Bulletin basketball team-The Hangovers. Quoting from that article: "Cold yellow fear had replaced the mock bravery they so often displayed. Led by Mr. Glater, who sat on the bench in the hrst game, they anxiously groped for excuses for their dastardly deed." The lead article on the sport page was a resume of the sports section of the lQ4fO Violet. The editorial page contained two editorials: "Over the Years", and "Salute to Service", the latter being a dedicatory editorial to Professors Dewey and Sprague. Thomas A. Mulvaney, editor, was depicted in an article entitled "Tom Mulvaney, Ye Ed." "Scotch and Cupid", gossip column, and "Gentlemen: The Board", a column depicting the personalities on the Managing Board, com- pleted the issue. Bernard Loecker Arthur Mincer Norman Topper 182 Commerce Bulletin V HE hrst issue of the eighth volume of the Commerce - Bulletin went to press last September under the editor- ship of Irving Glater and joe DeVico, who were re- appointed to their positions for the second successive year. In February, however, Glater declined reappointment and resigned in favor of Augustin Collazo, former man- aging editor. Collazo became editor of the day division of the newspaper. while DeVico continued in the capacity of night division head. A new addition to the Managing Board in February was Bernard Simon, who was ap- pointed managing editor to succeed Collazo. Continuing publication in the hve-column tabloid for- mat, the Bzzllelin instituted a number of innovations. Foremost was the establishment of an evening section, devoted exclusively to news and events occurring among evening school students. This section also contained edi- torials and columns written by evening representatives on the Managing Board. Another new feature, originated by the business manager, was the formation of a classihed advertising department. Still a further precedent was set with the creation of two news editors positions. This move, together with the return of the once existant fea- tures editor post, was designed to speed up and add effi- ciency to the news gathering facilities of the newspaper. In keeping with its policy of non-partisanship, and as a champion of student rights and formulator of student opinion, the Bulletin gave voice in its many editorials to such questions as the AA. book situation, class spirit, intramurals, neutrality, Student Council, tuberculosis, employment and a host of other vital subjects of concern to undergraduates. Reading from top to bottom: Augustin Collazo, Joseph I De Vico, Irving J. Glater. 183 Student opinion came to the fore when un- dergraduates voted overwhelmingly in favor of a cash and carry plan of neutrality in a Bulletin conducted poll. Another poll spon- sored by the paper on the A.A. book situation indicated Commerce students were heartily in favor of the Athletic Board's transferability clause pertaining to the book. The Bulletin also organized trips to Chapel Hill, North Carolina, during the football season and to Philadelphia to cheer the basketball team. MAX STEIN Content Ol the newspaper consisted of the routine coverage of school news. Also present in every issue were feature stories which met with great student interest. This year, as in the past, various columns were used. There were the familiar "Picking the Violets" and "College Capers." Newcomers consisted of "Candid Campus," Ujottings by Jogf' "So l'Ve Say," and a women's column captioned, "The YVomen." 1 . GEORGE LUBIN SEYMOUR MALNIAN DR. DEL NORTE XVINNING JAMES V.

It also serves as a guide to upperclassmen with the informative and varied material it contains. Helpful information on everything of interest to the freshman and under- graduate is presented in a comprehensive form. In an attempt to provide the freshmen with adequate knowledge olf their new surroundings, complete histories of the University and the School of Commerce. an article on the proper use of the Commerce Library, and a list of recognized fraternities, sororities, and clubs are given. The social side of college life is also lfullv treated in the frosh "bible" There is a review of the past seasons major social affairs and other important functions. Varsity, freshman, co-ed and intramural athletics are fully discussed with emphasis on the results of previous sports contests. Athletic material also includes a list of awards and eligibility and Athletic Association rules. In the student government section the complete constitutions of both the Day and Night Student Councils are found. An explanation of the intricacies of student government is also given, together with the names of ofhcers. In addition to the general information which the handbook contains, there are special features on such widely differing subjects as discipline and Greenwich Village life. An article on "How to Study" reveals the best methods to use in deriving the best results from study. The color scheme and arrangement of the 1959-40 Commerce Boolfs cover consisted of white typography on a violet background. Members of the 1939-40 staff included Ernest Baldassare, Nathan Cohen, Roslyn Cohen, Harold Elkind, Paul Farrar, Marvin Flam, Jerome Kramer, Harry Landesman, jr., Marvin Leffler, and Bernard Loecker.

Its seventh birthday was the occasion for bringing to light such personalities as Blitzkreig Bellsey, Confucious, and the Souper-Man, who provided entertainment for the students at lvashington Square College, the School of Education, and the School of Commerce. Other new features appearing in this year's issues were "Disc Varieties," "Broadway Varieties," and '6Varieties on the Aisle." Vzzrizflivs was Hrst printed as a sister publication to the University Heights Medley, which had established a reputation on campi all oyer the country. lfVitty jokes and humorous cartoons have continued to amuse the 5,000 students who buy Varieties each month. This year the Managing Board attempted to make the magazine exceptionally interesting to students by mentioning stu- dents' names profusely. Three years ago a new circulation system was introduced for the purpose of increasing sales. The system has worked so well that this year's circulation of 5,000 topped last yearls peak of 4,500 The Managing Board attributes the increase in circulation to the use of more cartoons. Varieties began the school year with an issue dedicated to the incoming freslnnen. Following the freshman issue, a football issue was presented to the student body in October. Other issues were dedicated to the All-U Frolic and the Fordham-New York football gameg the Chinese philospher, Confuciousg and the artists and Bohemians in Greenwich Village. The Valentine Day number was described as the most successful issue of the year. This issue was sold out in a half day, whereas it usually takes a full day to sell out. The heavier superior paper, which was first introduced last year to increase the legibility of the copy, was again used in all issues this year.

The Ledger maintained the high place it l1as achieved in tl1e held of accounting literature by continuing the prac- tice of having accountants in the Held submit articles. The last issue of the term was the fifth anniversary number. The publication was sent to accounting practitioners and authorities all over the country. It was also distributed to every large accounting firm in New York, to the Univer- sity of Texas, to the Mfestern School of Com- merce in Canada, and even to a school of business in South America. Dean John T. Madde11, Professor Arthur H. Rosenkampff, head of tl1e Accounting Depart- ment, Professor Gould H. Harris, and Mr. VVilliam VVider still retain their positions as the faculty advisory board. An advisory board of practicing accountants is headed by Jack S. Seidman, C.P.A. Mr. Seidman was president of the Class of 1921 and made the highest scholastic record in the history of the School of Commerce. Mr. Sternfeld, a recent alumnus and first editor of the Accoiuzting Ledger, is also on the board. The 111ost recent issue of the publication contained many articles contributed by active accountants. Among tl1e outside contributors were Mr. C. C.

Great 111en in all fields of sports have graduated from the University, men like Phil Edwards, the colored track immortal, Al Lassman and Ken Strong in football, Howard G. Cann, lVillie Rubinstein, and Jim Lancaster in basketball, and Norman Lewis. tl1e lJeCaprilles'. and Hugo Castello in fencing, will live long in the sports annals after the excitement of the current seasons has passed. Although the University records show tl1e earliest football game to have been played in 1882, the records of Stevens Institute ol' 'l'c-chnology, one of tl1e greatest schools of tl1e time that has since then become less important, show that we played them in 1872 when the Technicians defeated the Violet. But baseball, the step-child of the present collegiate athletic program, has a proud record too. Beginning in 1873 when a Rutgers' team defeated the Violet players 6-14, the diamondeers have compiled as proud a record as all the other teams. Although they lost 111any of the early contests tl1e ofhcial record. from 1896 to 1939, lists 353 wins against only 311 losses and 5 ties. Although New York U. became most outstanding in athletics during the "Chick" Meehan era, the basketball tea111s of 1919 and 1934 really should be placed ahead of all other teams. Tl1e 1919 team had for its captain Howard Ca11n, present basketball coach, who was voted tl1e greatest basketball player in tl1e world. The football team reached its high mark under John F. "Chick" Meehan. In his first year as head coach, tl1e 1925 season, the team won six games, lost two, and tied one. The following year, however, tl1e Violent Violets dropped only one in nine contests. In his seven years at the University, tl1e football teams won forty-nine games, lost hfteen and tied two for one of the best records in the country. Following Meehan's resignation, the football teams became less and less important, but in tl1e past two years they have become more outstanding again. Unheard of and without tl1e glorious fanfares that accompany the other sporting contests, the varsity fencing team has set up the best record of any team in the University. Guided by Coach Julio Martinez Castello, the fencers have won the Intercollegiate Championship five times in tl1e last six years. They set up an all time record when they retired the championship four consecutive times in 1934, '35, '35, and ,37- l Indoor Track ROVING that there is ample outstanding track ma- terial in New York City, Coach Emil von Elling, New York University's veteran mentor, has built one of the country's greatest all-around track squad's from tl1e city's schoolboy runners. Leslie MacMitchell, tl1e sophomore mile king, Joseph Gares in the long distances, Jim Her- bert, holder of three world records, jim McPoland, middle distance star, and many of the other greats were were all born and raised in the metropolitan area. The greatest of them all is the Ebony Flash, James B. Herbert. Although his performances slumped during the 1938-39 season, his exploits during the freshman, sophomore, and senior years have marked him as one of the greatest runners of all time, second only to Phil Edwards who burned up the tracks for the Violets back in 1928. The mile relay team consisting of Stanford Braun, Jim McPoland, Harold Bogrow, George Hagans, James B. Herbert, and Jared Fangboner l1as compiled one of the greatest records in Violet history. Among its accomplish- ments are ten first place honors, two second place honors, one new worlds indoor record, four meet records, and one track record. 1 93 Basketball LTHOUGH many fans considered this year's basket- ball team one of tl1e best ever to wear the Violet, a look at tl1e history of the cage sport at New York Uni- versity reveals many interesting facts. XVay back in 1908-09, the cagers, coached by Benja min Hermes and captained by James G. Dale, won thir- tee1 frames to Hnish the season without a mark against them. Dale assumed the responsibilities of head coach during 1912-13 season but his team won only one out of twelve games. The 1933-34 quintet, one of Coach Cann's greatest, won all contests of a sixteen game schedule. Captained by Jim Lancaster, the quintet downed such outstanding teams as St. Francis, Columbia, Georgetown, Rutgers, Fordham, Yale, Temple, and St. Johns The team, however, that first established New York U.'s fame on the court was the 1919-20 squad that cap tured the National A.A.U. title in the Atlanta, Ga, tournament. After having gone through the season with only one defeat in twelve starts, the Violets swept through the tournament without a loss. The star of the tournament l was the present coach, Howard G.

The narrow margin of one basket provided the Violets with a 39-37 victory over powerful Temple at Philadelphia on February 3. The winners were forced to come from behind in the second period to win out. Ralph Kaplowitz was the olliensive star with eleven points.

The Board ol Athletic Control turned a deaf ear to the bid of the Metropolitan Basket- ball YVriters' lnvitation Tournament despite the cries of protest from the players and student body as well. Red Stevens, whose sensational accuracy in tl1e closing weeks of the season contributed to many a scoring spurt, paced the Violet point-makers with 20.1. Sophomore Ralph Kaplowitz had 183 points, and Lewis, who finished up his sensational college career, scored 152. Back again for another season of basketball warfare will be Red Stevens, Ralph Kaplowitz, Ben Auerbach, and Irv Dubinsky of the regulars. Although Filling Lewis' capable shoes will be no easy task for Coach Howard Cann, hopes are high that out of his string of 1939 reserves, the Violets will uncover someone to take up the' cudgels next winter.

They are indeed a living monu- ment to the greatness of the dean of track coaches, Emil von Elling, the silver fox of Ohio Field. Vfith the return of James B.

The high mark of the indoor season was reached when the Hall of Famers annexed the IC4A crown on March 2. Three Hrst places, one second place, and two fourth places helped the Violets capture the team title with 27 points. James B. Herbert broke the 600-yard record with a 1211.2 run. MacMitche11 won the mile run, and the mile relay team also placed hrst. Gares placed second in the 2-mile race while Lawyer was fourth in the 60-yard dash and Taylor placed fourth in shot put. At the Dartmouth College Invitation meet, three new worlds indoor records were established by the Violet trackmen. In the 400-yard handicap, Herbert won from scratch and made a new worlds mark in o:48.4. The 880-yard relay team of Braun, Hagans, McPoland, and Bogrow blazed across their distance in 1:2797 for another new world's mark while the mile relay squad of Braun, Mc- Poland, Bogrow, and Herbert finished in 3:15 flat for the third mark.

Too many of the experienced men had graduated, the new squad was green and un- tried, and the schedule ahead of the team was one of the toughest in years.

Accompanied by a small band of students, the Hall of Famers opened the season against the Colgate eleven on September 30 at Colgate, N. Y. For three quarters the two teams fought to a standstill on the soft field with a Cold, wind-driven rain making the going tougher. From the very start the Hall of Famers took the offensive, and five Red Raiders were carried off the Held. Suddenly, on the fourth play of the fourth quarter, Colgatels 'Llndian Bill" Geyer grabbed bull: .. Qt? GALU HIILMCKII SCHILLIG Us the ball and raced 88 yards for a touchdown. The placement fell short. Although the Violet rooters had already given up in despair, the Stevensmen fought back inch by inch until, with three minutes to go, Boell crashed across the goal line after a 65-yard drive. Bill Galu was rushed into the game and, while Boell held the ball, he split the uprights for the extra point. The game finally ended with New York winning 7-6 in one of the hardest played games of the season. The following week, under a hot sun. the Violets ran over Pennsylvania Military College, 43-O. at Ohio Field. Kept to the ground by P.lVl.C.'s alert aerial defense, the Violets marched up and down the field, scoring in every period of the game. Joe LalVIanna and Joe Frank, playing in Boell,s spot, were the star backs of the game. But the luck that had been with the Hall of Famers during the first two games deserted them in Chapel Hill, N. C., where an alert Tarheel squad rallied late in the fourth period after being outplayed for the three opening periods, and turned back the invaders from the North, 14-7. After having been overpowered by the North Carolinians during the first few minutes, the CONNOLLY s ' game.. ' 1 l CONLIN Violets tightened up their defense and started to roll. Alex Campanis took a pass from Boell and snake-hipped his way through the Carolina secondaries for the first score of the game, mid- way in the first period. Galu kicked the extra point again, and New York led, 7-0. Several times more the Stevensmen came close to scoring but missed. In the fourth period. Stirnweiss of North Carolina scored from his two after his team had recovered a fumbled interception. A successful placement by Dunkel tied up the game, 7-7.

' sf LA MANNA York kicked, only to have the ball kicked back to the Violet two-yard line. Boell, growing des- perate, decided to chance a pass, which was in- tercepted by Dunkel on the N. Y. U. 22. A per- fect pass from Stirnweiss to Radman sent the latter across the goal line, and another place- ment by Dunkel ended the game, 14--7. Never had the Violets bloomed more brilliant- ly than on October 21, when, under ideal football conditions, the home team turned back a highly favored Carnegie Tech squad, 6-0, at the Yankee Stadium. Perfect team play, inspired ball hand- ling, and smart field generalship, plus a smile from Lady Luck, helped the Stevensmen turn BARMACK FRANK MIKULKA one of the biggest upsets in the East before the amazed spectators. The following week the Hall of Famers were hosts to the University of Georgia. Fighting every inch of the way, the Stevensmen desperately clung to their early lead and won, 14-13. New York scored both in the first and second quarters on touchdowns by Boell and Mond and extra points by Galu and LaManna. At the close of the half, Knox Eldredge of Georgia got excited when Joe Frank knocked down a pass, and a free-for-all started with all the players participating. This seemed to give Georgia the necessary spark. Coming back for the second half, Vassa Cate took the ball on a reverse and sprinted 65 yards for a well-earned touchdown. Al McCaskill kicked the extra point, and Georgia was trailing by only seven points. Sparked by Ed Fordham and Cate, the Georgians began to have a field day and clearly outplayed the Stevensmen. Late in the fourth, a fumble gave Georgia the ball on N. Y. U.'s 35, and rapid drives by Cate and Fordham brought it down to the Violet four. For four downs the New York line held, but when an oifside nullified the last down, Fordham cut over the line for the second Georgia score.

But repeated oifsides and penalties nullihed their attempts, and the game ended with New York leading by one point in a hard-fought victory. Returning to Ohio Field, New York avenged last year's defeat at the hands of Lafayettels Leopards by turning back the Pennsylvanians. 14-0.

Led by '4Passin7 Paula, Christman, their dazzling All-American halfback, the Missouri Tigers came to town and humbled the Stevens- men, 20-7, at the Yankee Stadium for their worst defeat of the year. Christmanis long-distance passes and his down-field tears behind fast-form- ing interference were too much for the New Yorkers. and not even Boell's inspiring play could stop the Missouri tide.

Tired by the gruelling first half, the Stevensmen came back to face constant waves of fresh Ford- ham substitutes. While Irving Mond, who had scored the only New York touchdown, was out, Holovak tore around the end, and in the next four minutes Fordham scored twice. But even then, Boell, the Violets, star, kept on passing, punting, and charging. Two minutes and thirty- seven seconds before the end of the game, he had to be helped off the field, too sick and exhausted to go on.

This came as a surprise because the Hempstead nine had been considered an easy touch. A scheduled game against Manhattan was rained out, and in the next game, Boell lost a pitcher's battle in succumbing to St. John's, 3-2.

Coach Fred lVallace's aggrega- tion was again rated Ellllfjllg the outstanding squads in tl1e East. Having won the 1938-39 Eastern Regional Meet title, tl1e Violet marksmen were expected to have another good season. Stanley Singer, wl1o was individual high scorer of that meet with 371 points out of a possible 400, was elected captain. I11 tl1e season's opening matcl1 with Cooper Union, tl1e Violet came tl1ro11gl1, 900-856. Julian Rosenthal was high scorer of the match witl1 185 points. Tl1e Violet scored two victories o11 one day tl1e following week. Thomas Pickhardt paced the nimrods, to a 906-870 victory over Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute, Day Division, in tl1e morn- ing. Tl1at afternoon tl1e Violet Squad defeated Brooklyn Poly, Evening Division, 906-892. Pickhardt was l1igh scorer again with 188 points. Three weeks later, tl1e lVallacemen defeated tl1e Brooklyn College marksmen, 89.1-852. Gene Springer with 182 points was high scorer. After the examination period, the Violet Squad defeated Fordham in a non-league match. Charles Bauer tallied 193 points as the New York U. team won, 936-913. Hofstra College was also downed, Q21-Q04. The nimrods won tl1eir seventh straight match, outshooting City College and Rutgers University at tl1e Heights range.

FRANCIS P. XVALL ANDICAPPED by the lack of specialists in the short dis- tances, the varsity swimming team was defeated in seven of the eight dual matches. In each case, however, the losing margin consisted of a few points only. The major letter winners entered the Eastern Collegiate Swimming Association races in Lancaster, Pa., on the Franklin and Marshall campus. The New York U. entries took seventh place in the team standings. Scagnelli scored fourth in the 50-yard free style event, Freidel scored fourth in the 220-yard breast stroke, while Captain O'Connell was high man for the Violets with a second place in the 100-yard free style race. The Violet tankmen opened the season against City College in the Lavender pool and lost, 35-40. Lack of points in some of the races gave the Beavers the advantage and helped them eke out a closely contested victory. Brooklyn College was next to defeat New York, 32-43, in the Park Central pool. Rutgers University played host to the Hall of Famers the following week and defeated their guests, 52-23. The Scarlet were far superior to the Violet in all events and were never threatened. Fordham University's swimmers came to the Park Central pool the next week and eked out a 40-35 victory. This was the first time in many years the Rams had managed to defeat the Violet in dual competition. The YA7allmen next travelled to Easton, Pa., to meet the Leopard swimmers of Lafayette College. Illness of some of the squad members and tough breaks in the sprints aided the home team to win, 43-35. Returning to the metropolitan area, the Violet faced and defeated Manhattan College for the only victory of the year. Paced by Captain O'Connell, the New York swimmers put on a late spurt to overcome an early Manhattan lead and won, 41-34. 213 QIHQWQT ' . it , " --k.-- 1 .Eve 2 1--'eff ' . 52' F , A ,r g if Ng 41111 f T-Q'1if1,,.5'p ': ..,3-:Igf-as reiiie fig -' " U 1" .,. .0414 ,-.. 11,-j'.gfgg:,l, 'V N 4 ----'avg-fifty-gg Tennis Captain . . . ALTER MILBERG Manager . . . SEYMOUR GREENBERG Coach . . . . GERALD ENIERSON THE 1939 varsity tennis team, possessors of the mythical metro- politan cliampionsliip, finished another successful season. Al- together, the netmen chalked up a record of eight wins with only two defeats at the hands of City College and Rutgers University. Led by Captain Alter Milberg, who has again been elected captain, tl1e tennis team conquered the University of Newark, 9-o, at the outset of the season. Next in order to lose to the Violets were Boston College, which dropped a 6-3 decision, St. John's University, which lost 5K2-gyz, and Fordham, 8-1. The first loss of the season was incurred at the hands of C.C.N.Y., which won a close 5-4 decision. The team came rapidly back to its winning strides and won four games in a row before dropping tl1e last game of the season for the second defeat of the year. Long Island University lost, 7-2, and was followed by Brooklyn College which lost, 5-4. Man- hattan was also blanked, 7-2, and Columbia lost by only one point, 5-4. Rutgers University proved too strong, and the Violets bowed before them, 6-3, in the last contest of the season. The team, which has set up one of the best tennis records in the east, is again coached by Mr. Gerald Emerson, an instructor at Mfashington Square College. He is a former Columbia Univer- sity tennis captain and was considered one of the best collegiate players of his day. Coach Emerson is spending his fourteenth season at New York U., and his teams have set up an enviable record. His total wins and losses record at New York is 138 triumphs against 32 defeats. The schedule for this season calls for eleven dual matches, seven of which are to be played with local opponents. 214 Wrestling Captain . . GENE DELLA BADIA Manager . . . JACK H. HIRSCHHORN Coach ......... FRANCOIS D,ELISCU AFTER a lapse of four years, wrestling was promoted to the ranks of a varsity sport to represent New York University in inter-collegiate competition. Francois D'Eliscu, an instructor at the School of Education, was appointed coach. Fifty prospective matmen reported at the first practice session. Of these, many had participated in the intra-mural wrestling pro- gram. Eugene Della Badia was elected to captain the team through its five meet schedule. Lined up for the first match against Brooklyn College were Scott Coleman in the 121 lb. division, Jerry Simpson in the 128 lb. class, Captain Della Badia at 145 lbs., Murray Driller in the 155 lb. section, Ralph Spanjer at 165 lbs., and Phil Rutchek and Nicholas Fortiages in the heavyweight division. Brooklyn proved too strong for the Violets and won the match QOMQ-7y2. The following week, the New York matmen played host to Westchester State College and downed the Teachers 17-13. On February 24 the team travelled to Philadelphia to engage the crack Temple wrestlers. The Owl squad which, later in the sea- son, captured the Pennsylvania championship, was too experi- enced and polished and won the meet 23-ll. The Violets attempted to hit the win column again when they journeyed to New Brunswick on February 24, but Rutgers sent their guests back to New York with a 22-10 setback. The season was brought to a close March 16 when the grapplers bowed to C. C. N. Y. 20-8. Jerry Simpson was the shining light of the team, winning all of his five schedule bouts. Three of Simpson's triumphs were recorded by throws while the other two were won by decisions. Captain Della Badia and Phil Rutchek were the other star performers. 215 -. .

SIDNEY Lizscnkm, '40 ALTHOUGH the freshman football record was not impressive, the cubs having dropped all four contests on their schedule, the coaching staff was highly satished with the season, for several of the players proved themselves to be excellent material for the varsity squad. , Finn was the tea1n's running, passing, and kicking ace. He often amazed spectators with his quick kicks from only ive yards behind the line of scrimmage. Bates, one of the best blockers and most vicious tacklers on any of the recent freshmen teams, shared the spotlight with him. A 1 VZ, , jp 625 6- The team got off to a bad start, losing to the Villanova cubs 27-6 in Philadelphia. Finn ran 70 yards for the lone Violet touchdown. The following week a hard Hghting Army plebe team defeated the invaders 28-o at West Point. After a two week lay-off, the freshmen engaged the Fordham yearlings at Ohio Field. Although leading 6-o at the end of the half on Bates' brilliant sixteen yard touchdown plunge, the cubs could not stand off a powerful Ramlet rally and bowed 27-6. In the final contest of the season, Manhattan's lighting frosh took advantage of several breaks and won 13-6. This year, for the first time since Chick Meehan's regime, the freshmen team engaged in regular practice drills with the varsity. The experiment proved very successful, although the cubs found little time to run through their own plays. The members of the 1939 squad were: Raymond Rich, Edward Rosenthal, Robert Yocher, John Lapointe, Joseph Notch, Rico Cassucci, Leonard Bates, Harry LaVine, Ross Cherico, Jerimiah Mullane, Thomas Wolfe, VVilliam Gandley, Charles Heiser, Vin- cent Finn, Warren Klauser, Herbert Chaiten, Carl Delfino, Gerald Silverman, Milan Lillis, Albert Franz, and Lawrence Carnevale. 217 I 4.

I. :XLBERT BIAIER LTHOUCH the freshman basketball team was not very suc- cessful in dual competition, winning six games and losing eight, the cub basketeers nevertheless had some great moments and scored the highest number of points of any other freshman team in metropolitan basketball history. The team lost tl1e Hrst two games to tl1e Kips Bay Boys Club and the New York Stock Exchange quintets 32-37 and 28-37 re- spectively. The Grand Street Settlement cagers, however, pre- sented no problem and were turned back 2g-20 for the first win of the years. Bishop, Carnevale, and Reiss began to work as a unit and the result was clearly shown. The St. Francis freshmen, however, were too strong for the Maiermen and won 34-47 at the Heights gymnasium. Their shooting was too accurate and their floor play a little too fast for the Violet cubs. The New Yorkers came back, however, to defeat tl1e Manhattan freshmen 32-26 at the Heights gymnasium. Fordham's freshmen, not to be outdone by the Ram gridders, defeated the Hall of Famers 39-41. After leading all game, the Violets lost out in the last two minutes when Fordham sank a do-or-die goal. The Scarborough School, tl1e N.Y.A.C. quintet, Newark Prep, and the College of Paterson all felt the Violet attack and dropped their games in that order. Scarborough lost 34-30, N.Y.A.C. 44-33, Newark Prep 82-17, and Paterson 133-17. The last score was the highest point difference in metropolitan history. Fordham's freshmen won again 42-47, St. John's cubs won 29-33, the Boys Club quintet romped off with a 28-43 victory, and the City College xl.V. nosed out a narrow 56-54 victory. Squad members who were awarded major freshman numerals are: Julius Reiss, Lawrence Carnevale, Charles Heiser, Bernard Slater, Louis Petta, Bernard Bishop, Frank Duffy, Irving Rifkin, Richard Wolff, Fred Stoloff, and Francis Stapleton. 218 Freshman Track and Cross Country Coach ......... EMIL voN ELLING L AST year's freshman outdoor track team was one of the most sparkling in Violet history, winning all three meets of their schedule in convincing manner. The freshman cross-country team on the other hand, did not do so well. The cub trackmen opened their outdoor season with a decisive 76-41 victory over Rutgers at Ohio Field. MacMitchell, followed by Corbin Dixon and Dave Ulbrich finished in that order in the mile special and clinched the victory for the Violets. Stanford Braun placed first in the 220 and tl1e 440-yard runs. Manhattan was tl1e freshmenls next victim. The Violets top- pled Kelly Greens 81-62 in a closely waged meet. MacMitchell again won the mile in the fast time of 42242. Wliitney Lewendon placed third for New York in that event. Braun again was vic- torious in the sprint, winning the 100-yard and 220-yard sprint events while Joe Gares won the 2-mile event. - In their final event, the yearlings swamped Columbia's frosh 85-50 at Baker Field. Dan Carney, Dave Lawyer, and Bill Hulse finished in that order in the 220-yard dash. The Violets also swept the 2-mile event with Jack Ross, Gares, and Dickson coming through for the Palisaders. MacMitchell again astounded the fans with his easy victory in the mile while Lewendon placed second in the same event. The freshmen harriers won over Princeton, Pennsylvania Uni- versity, Rutgers, and Manhattan while they lost to Columbia, C.C.N.Y, and Fordham. V In the Metropolitan Intercollegiate freshman championship, the harriers placed only fourth behind Columbia, Fordham, and City College. In the Intercollegiate run, the cubs finished eleventh with 275 points. Ed Eaton was the first Violet to cross the tape in the thirty-sixth spot. The Violets finished ahead of all other metropolitan schools except Manhattan, however. A 219 -4 'Aff i 4 .2 I 'rg' A Q3 , Freshman Fencing Manager . . XVALLACE KINZ Coach .......... STANLEY SIEJA AFTER dropping only one in hve dual 111eets, the freshman fencing team again captured the Intercollegiate fencing championship at Princeton, N. J. Despite the lack of good mater- ial at the outset of the season, Coach Stanley Sieja again whipped the squad into good shape and proceeded to turn out one of the best cub teams in Violet history. The freshmen ope11ed the season on February 17 by defeating the College of the City of New York Jayvees 16-11 at the City gymnasium. Superiority in saber and foils competition Won the meet for tl1e Violets. Travelling to lfVest Point, the freshmen fencers swamped the Army plebes 17-10 on February 22. After trailing in tl1e early parts of the meet, the New Yorkers put on pressure and defeated the Cadets witl1out trouble. Returning to tl1e home strips in tl1e East Building's Salle D'- Armes, Coach Sieja's aggregation was nosed out by a strong and versatile Riverdale Country Day School squad by one point. Illness of some of the stars weakened tl1e Violet lineup and the invading foilsmen won 14.-13. VV'hile the varsity team was defeated by a strong Navy squad, the freshmen made up for the loss by turning back the Navy Plebes 14-13 on March 9 at Annapolis. Again the Violets' reserve strength in saber and foils helped them win a strongly contested match. The Columbia freshmen provided little opposition for the smoother working Violets and the latter defeated the Lion cubs 17-10 on the East Building strips. In the Freshman Intercollegiate Fencing Championships held at Princeton, N. on March 23, three Violet cubs finished in the first five positions to give the cub fencers the intercollegiate crown. Stanley Levy placed first, Robert Green placed third, and Michael Barkin Hnished in fifth position. 220 Q 51" Freshman Baseball COHCYZ . . l-XRTHUR H. ROBER1'S Manager . . LEO S1LvERsT131N VEN during the early practice session, while the team was still disorganized and the schedule had not yet been com- pleted, Arthur H. Roberts, coach of the freshman baseball team, predicted that this year's squad would be one of the most out- standing in Violet history. To date they have certainly lived up to his predictions, VVhile the 1939 cub squad could win only one in seven contests, dropping the Hrst six in a row, the current team has won its two opening contests and has already developed into a closely knit, hard fighting group. Opening the season on April 22 at Ohio Field, the cubs lived up to their pre-season expectations and easily trounced the Emer- son High School "nine" of Union City, N. QI., 3-1. Superior pitch- ing and more effective hitting power was responsible for the Violet victory. Three days later the squad repeated its initial performance and turned back the College of the City of New York junior varsity contingent 7-5 at Ohio Field. Free hitting marked the game while Lou Peta, who contributed two doubles, and Ed Bonner, who hit a triple and a single, led the Violet batters. Last year's freshmen were shut out in their opening contest by the C.C.N.Y. junior varsity. Twenty seven errors, indicative of extremely poor fielding, were the only outstanding feature of the game. 'When the final tabulations had been completed, City College had amassed seven runs to win the game 7-o. Two days later the squad continued its series of scoreless in- nings when a powerful Fordham cub team shut them out 3-o in the first home and home series. On April 29, in a scorer's night- mare. the Violet cubs lost their third straight game to the Scar- borough School. Five time the lead changed hands but Scar- borough Hnally won 15-13. 221 'Q "1 "" .. "'- :J j 'I --1 Ag- - -Q.

Lizizrrn J'UNG ACED by Miss Lorraine Fischer, holder of the women's na- tional record in the 220-yard breast stroke, the New York University's swimming team compiled an excellent record this season, winning seven out of their eight scheduled meets. The co-eds opened the season agairist a strong Penn Hall team and were defeated despite Miss Fischer's victories. At this meet Miss Fischer established a new women's national record in the 100-yard breast stroke event at 1218.1 at the Evangeline House pool. In spite of the bad beginning, the Violettes came back in their next meet and defeated Swarthmore College on March 16. The excellent swimming of the Misses Fischer and Hoole, plus the good diving of Alice Hyman, were instrumental in the co-ed's victory. From then on the swimming girls made up their minds to maintain an unbeaten record, and they did. Their next oppon- ent was a strong Savage swimming squad, whom the Violettes met and conquered on March 21. New York University's mer- maids captured five first places in a row to sweep the opposition off its feet. The Misses Lorraine Fischer and Marguerite Hoole shared the starring honors for the Violet, each taking two first places. The diving honors of the day went to MissesAlice Hyman and Annette Cohen who placed first and third respectively to give the diving victory to the Violettes. l ' The co-eds travelled to Boston to swim against the Posse Institute team on March 23. The Violettes won their third meet easily, thanks to the fine swimming of the Misses Fischer, Hoole, Cohen, and Jung. r P For their next victory, the Violettes defeated a strong Temple University swimming squad on March-29 at Temple University in Philadelphia by a 29-18 score. 223 ,Q Q Mt- . t Co-ed Fencing Team Cnplnin . . . jo BIANCINELLI Manager . GrEORGI.-X EVALENKE Conch ..... ...... J ULIA JONES EXV York Univcrsitys women's fencing team, led by veteran Jo Mancinclli, finished a successful season of nine meets, win- ning seven out of nine. The co-ed fencers started the campaign on February 6 by de- feating the Alumnae, 5-4. Miss Mancinelli and Miss McClennon were the leaders in this match and had little difficulty in taking the opposition. The girls then visited Brooklyn College and were defeated, 5-4, after a closely contested match. The foilswomen then travelled to the University of Maryland on February 23 and won, S-1. This victory was the result of fine work by the Misses Mancinelli, Barcan, and Iskowitz. The following day the co-eds went out and scored their second victory in a row by defeating a strong Ylfilliam and Mary College team at the latter's home court. The score was 7-5. The foilswomen went on to score their third victory of the season over YVagner College on March 1 at the Violet court. The score of this match was 7-2, the credit for the victory going to Ethel Iskowitz and Ruth Barcan, both juniors, who were strongly supported by Miss Mancinelli. Hofstra College was the next opponent. A traditional rival and always a strong team, the Hofstra fencers took the New York foilswomen into camp by defeating them, 6-3, on March 12 at Hempstead, L. l. Defeat resulted despite the valiant efforts and personal victory scored by the Misses Mancinelli and McGlennon. The co-eds met their next opponents, New Jersey State Teach- ers College, on March IQ at their home court and defeated them by a 7-2 score. The team's victory was due to the excellent fencing of the Misses Mancinelli, Barcan, Iskowitz, and McGlennon. The sixth victory was scored when the Violettes defeated Hunter College on April 2 by the close score of 5-4. The fencers closed a successful season by defeating the Cornell squad, 6-3. 224 Co-ed Basketball Captain .... .... H ILDEGARDE SACK Manager . . KATHERINE PETMLAK Conch .......... ESTHER FOLEY ENV York University's co-ed basketball team faced a difficult nine-game schedule with an inexperienced and untried freshman squad. They completed the season witl1 a record of three games won, one tie, and five losses. The Violettes opened the season on january 13 by playing against a strong W'agner team, and they managed to hold the opposition to a 20-20 tie. The young, green members of the squad played like veterans and showed good form against the experi- enced opposition. They followed this initial game with a surprise, defeating a powerful, experienced, Hunter College squad at their home court on February 2, 2 1-18. They followed their unexpected and hard fought win by a 10-IQ defeat at the hands of the strong and always capable Savage School of Physical Education squad on February io at the winner's home court. This crushing defeat at the hands of a strong squad left the Violettes in no condition to face their traditional and hard fighting rival, Hofstra. The Long Islanders were out for revenge after being defeated for two .consecutive years, and although the New York U, freshmen did their best, they lost, 17-27, on the winner's home court on February 14 at Hempstead. When all seemed blackest the Violettes came back with a bang to defeat Rider College of New Jersey, which has always been a strong opponent, 17-13, at New York University s court at the Evangeline Gym on February 16. This unexpected and spectacular victory was followed by crushing defeats. First came St. AIoseph's of Brooklyn, always a difficult rival with a superior team. They defeated the Violettes, 17-13, on February 23 at the winner's court. Temple then de- feated them, 28-17, at the Temple court in Philadelphia on March 1. 225 C is - ' - ,.-f--rw" H : ' as-lair K. ., 1-' '-7,15 P-' 3 . 3- 1' ff Q' f , - .f 10,2 . as '-:a1?s:'g.-Q ' 'E ' l , fr .3 D' W4 - 9. tara , iN fs Gm ICKEY -:L X' , -.

ESTHER FOLEY HANDICAPPED by the loss of several veterans, Miss Esther Foley, coach of the co-ed field hockey team, had to build an entirely new squad around Misses Marie Padorowski, Dorothy Kranen, and Cornelia McCarthy, in preparation for a diflicult six game schedule. As a result, the Violettes won only one match, tied one, and went down to defeat in the remaining four contests. Making their most outstanding effort of the year, the girls opened the season against the Fieldstone School. After lighting hard all the way, Miss Foley's squad won the contest, 2-0, mainly because of the brilliant work of the veterans and the fighting spirit of the newcomers. The following games were not quite as successful from the standpoint of scoring, but they clearly indicated the fine caliber of the squad. Despite the desperate attempts of the veterans, the Violettes lost to a strong Hofstra squad, 6-o. In the next game, Hunter College also held the New York U. team scoreless, win- ning 3-o. In a return match, the Hofstra team again blanked the Violettes, but the latter held their opponents to only three points. With Elizabeth Rigby, the team's captain and mainstay, unable to play, the New York University stick-wielders managed to hold a strong Posse School of Physical Education squad to a 3-0 score. In the last game of the season, the co-eds put up another grand battle and held the always dangerous Rhode Island State team to a 1-1 tie. The members of this yearls team were: Janet Dunn, Elizabeth Rigby, Gerry Wolfe, Ann Feinstein, Lucille Schwartz, Cornelia McCarthy, Marie Padorowski, Grace Roll, Bernade Walsh, Lizette Jung, Rita Fersthoff, Meredity Buschatzky, Lorraine Fisher, Dorothy Kranen, Elizabeth Locke, and Viola Gottheilff. 226 C0-ed Tennis Captain . . . .KIANETDUNN Conch. . . ESTHER FOLEY ANDICAPPED by a short practice season because of unfavor- H able weather conditions, the 1939 co-ed tennis team, paced by Captain janet Dunn, made the most of a short season, winning and losin two of the four matches la ed. 3 P Y The Violettes were successful in their Hrst match, in which they defeated a strong Fieldstone squad on May 10 at the loserls courts by a 3-2 score. The fine playing of janet Dunn accounted for one match, while the good team work of the Misses Grace Pagnucco and Edythe Schluter, and Captain Dunn and Minda Turkel, defeated the Fieldstoners in the doubles. The next match was played against Hofstra College, a tradi- tional rival, on May 15 at Hofstra. The co-eds were beaten by the narrow margin of one match. The Violettes lost, 3-2 despite the excellent playing of Janet Dunn and Edythe Schluter in the singles matches which accounted for the close score. Bad luck comes in pairs, and the co-eds dropped their next match to the Hofstra team on May 23, this time at the loser's home courts at 167th Street and Grand Concourse, the Bronx. The score this time was 4-1, and the only victory of the matches was scored by Miss Dunn. Travelling to Trenton, N. J., on May 25, the Violettes ended their season with a victory by defeating an excellent Rider College h squad by a 3-2 score at the latter's home court. The singles matc es were won by Edythe Schluter and Janet Dunn, while the doubles were won by Grace Pagnucco and Minda Turkel.

The team won eleven of the twelve games played during the 1940 season. The squad opened its tournament play with a thrilling 37-29 victory over the School of Engineering quintet at the Heights Gymnasium. In the second contest the Commerce contingent per- formed brilliantly again, defeating the School of Education team 35-27. The game was nip and tuck throughout with the Commerce men going on to win in the final few minutes of play. The Wasliington Square College team proved stiffer competi- tion for Blumenfeld's awrevfation, but the Commerce s uad no an q put on a final exhibition of power and accuracy to win out 23-20.9 just before the Violet went to press, the team scored a one- sided 42--26 victory over the School of Arts squad. Blumenfeld, the Mendelsohn twins, Mitch Hotchberg, and Tabertschofer starred for the squad during the tournament. Previous to the all-University tournament, the Commerce team won seven games from outside competitors.

Intramural Sports TUDENTS at the School of Commerce can well afford to be proud of the Intramural curriculum that is offered to them, for within the conhnes of the East Building gymnasium one of the most extensive interschool athletic programs in the country is carried on. Supervision of all Commerce Intramural activities is under the direction of Prof. Francis P. IVal1 and Mr. John A. Kuhn, whose ofhce is located in Room 335, East Building. Intramural competition has, within the past few years, won recognition from the student body and can be favorably com- pared, as far as interest is concerned, with the varsity teams. Included on the list of sports offered to the students by the Intramural Committee are handball, badminton, swimming, track, volley ball, ping pong, pocket billiards, wrestling, fencing, and basketball, the latter tournament being based on competition between basketball teams representing the other divisions of the University. The New York University Intramural Committee sponsors an annual tournament to determine the intramural basketball championship of New York University. Official teams from all branches of the University are entered, with the winner of the uptown league meeting the downtown victor to decide the Final winner. In this year's tournament the Commerce team was dead- locked with the School of Architecture and Allied Arts for the lead, each outht having four victories as against no losses. The Law School team finished in the downtown league cellar with six losses and no wins. In the interclub basketball tournament, extended to clubs from the various branches of the University, the Aiax Club, representing Commerce, won the championship when it defeated the Education Edclers, 41-26. In second position came the Edders, with the Commerce Comets Hnishing in the third slot. Thirty teams competed in this event. 230 . Violet Skull Basketball ALTHOUGH Theta Chi won the athletic point tropl1y of Violet Skull, Christian interfraternity council, with 550 points, Alpha Kappa Psi's court team captured tl1e Skull basketball championship for the second consecutive time. Easily the tallest and smoothest working combination on the court, they van- quished all opposition but Theta Nu Epsilon's quintet to com- pile a record of ten victories and two losses. At the end of the hrst half of the tournament, Theta Nu Epsilon, Alpha Kappa Psi, and Theta Chi were deadlocked for hrst place with four victories and one defeat each. A. K. had defeated Theta Chi by a close margin while T. N. E. nosed out A. K. 15-11. Theta Chi in turn had defeated T. N. E. 12-11 in a hotly contested game. The second half of the tournament saw a repetition of the first half. While neither of the three leaders had any difficulty defeating the rest of the league, all three stumbled over each other. T. N. E. again defeated A. K. by a close margin while Theta Chi played its most inspired game to rout T. N. E., A. K. for the second time, nosed out Theta Chi. Faced with another three way tie at the end of the second half, Theta Chi drew an automatic by and played the winner of the A. K.-T. N. E. game in the playoffs. Coming up against Alpl1a Kappa Psi for the third time, T. N. E. lost its early season calmness and sharp shooting and bowed to its opponent. In the final game of the series, Theta Chi outscored Alpha Kappa Psi but the latter's accuracy from the foul line proved too much for the Red and White. Trailing toward the end, A. K. rallied and won the contest 36-32. The members of the winning squad were Captain Bill Leon- hardt, Tom Walker, Bill Harris, Bill Gemmel, Austin Rising, Edwin Schoenborn, Dick Sampson, Ed May, and Manager Gene Donelan. Other outstanding players were John Smart and Dick Connell of Theta Chi, Bobbv Harris and John Marra of Sigma Phi Epsi- lon, Fred Jones, Mike Gualari, and Dan Polcini of Theta Nu Epsilon. 231 i .4,.,. . ., , G. 52:7 :T ' N i -l 1-152.g if " Img K ' 9' gag? .: I, Fw 5 ' 'f ., !

YVALLACE NEXN'NIAN EORGANIZED during the days of the "Chick" Meehan regime, the New York University Band is today one of the foremost collegiate marching units in the east. It includes not only members of the R.O.T.C. band but students from all other divisions of the University as well. Comparable to the football team and reserves in size, the band boasts of eighty regular members as well as fifteen additional uniformed reserves. Even though it has not been publicized as widely as other bands and is not uniformed as brilliantly, it is, nevertheless, an integral Part of the color and excitement of the Violet football and basketball contests. Perhaps the most outstanding feature of the Band is the quickness of its marching step. Some authorities claim that it has the fastest pace of any college band in the country. This accen- tuates the intricate formations that have become so well known to all Hall of Fame fans. The Band has also gained nation-wide recognition for its fine harmony. Based on the regular army band style, this harmony lends the band dignity. Although the Band is controlled by the Athletic Association and although it is an important part of the athletic set-up of the University, the members do not receive varsity letters or other insignia for their services. Despite the long hours of practice, they receive no compensation other than an occasional compli- mentary ticket to the athletic contests. Spectators at the Georgia-New York U. game received an un- expected shock when one of the tuba players collapsed in his tracks while the Band was going through one of the more intricate formations. Immediately one of the uniformed reserves rushed out on the Held, picked up the tuba, ran after the Band that had kept calmly on its Way, and took the stricken man's place. 232 'Yi- 6 ,,,. ik X I I ,1 1 J' wi ,fl 'X 1 l!

Once started, fraternities at Commerce flourished. and today there are thirty-seven recognized fraternities. ln 19o7 Delta Sigma Pi was founded, and in the following years Phi Alpha, Sigma Omega Psi, and Theta Chi began their initial periods of growth at Commerce. Each group started with only a handful of men. but by 1932 every fraternity on the campus had forty or more chapters in business schools throughout the country. Alpha Epsilon Pi, Alpha Phi Delta, Alpha Sigma Chi, Delta Phi Epsilon, Lambda Gamma Phi, Lambda Sigma Phi, Sigma Phi Epsilon, and Theta Nu Epsilon were all founded at Commerce prior to 1932. Although the types of fraternities at Commerce range from honorary to social, from Christian to Jewish, and from professional to non-professional, all seem to indicate the same desire to "foster and promote a spirit of fraternity and mutual regard among their members and to strive for the development of social and business betterment." ' . Inter-fraternity cooperation has been advanced in the past few years through the efforts of tl1e Violet Shield and the Violet Skull. The Violet Shield was started in 1937 to act as the Jewish Interfraternity Council. Representatives of selected Jewish fraternities meet regularly to promote a spirit of friendliness and cooperation among jewish fraternities on the campus. The Shield holds freshman smokers, monthly dances, and a11 annual athletic tournament. Members of the Violet Shield are Phi Alpha, Alpha Epsilon Pi, Alpha Sigma Chi, Sigma Omega Psi, and Tau Alpha Omega. The Violet Skull was formed in 1932 to bind more closely together the Christian fraternities on the campus. Activities of the Skull include smokers, dances, athletic tournaments, and an annual Beer Smoker at' which deserving members are tapped to Phi Pl1i, the honorary inner circle. Members of the Violet Skull are Alpha Kappa Psi, Delta Sigma Pi, Lambda Sigma Phi, Phi Delta, Sigma Phi Epsilon, Theta Chi, and Theta Nu Epsilon. Other recognized fraternities on the campus are Alpha Gamma, Alpha Mu Sigma, Alpha Phi Epsilon, Beta Alpha Psi, Delta Sigma Tau, Epsilon Phi Alpha, Gamma Eta Sigma, Kappa Phi Sigma, Kappa Tau Alpha, Omega Delta Phi, Phi Beta Delta, Phi Gamma Kappa, Phi Kappa Delta, Phi Sigma Delta, Sigma Sigma Sigma, Sigma Tau Epsilon, Sigma Tau Phi, Sigma Theta Delta, Tau Delta Phi, Tau Epsilon Phi, Theta Alpha Kappa, Theta Alpha Phi, and Zeta Beta Tau.

During the years it has assumed nation-wide prominence and now embraces 26 undergraduate chapters throughout the country as well as 15 alumni clubs located in the principal cities from the Atlantic to the Pacific coast. Alpha Epsilon Pi was founded in order "to inculcate and promote deep- seated friendship, to encourage truthfulness, honesty and courage, to foster a spirit of helpfulness and cooperation, and to create a closer bond of friendship among its members through participation in college and general social activity." The social program for the year consisted of house parties, forums, and stag affairs. Other important events were Founders' Day, Alpha Epsilon Pi Day, and Orphans' Outing Day. All this was climaxed by the national convention. Also, the chapter held an annual spring formal at the YVarwick and an alumni winter formal at the George Washington. Alpha Epsilon Pi is a member of the Violet Shield, the jewish lnterfraternity Council, and participates in all its functions. OFFICERS Mttstei' . . . .

It was the first professional fraternity in the Held of commerce. Since its inception, A. K. Psi has gradually and steadily expanded until there are now fifty-nine under- graduate and fifteen alumni chapters in well known colleges and universities in the United States and Canada. As a professional fraternity, Alpha Kappa Psi strives to foster scientific research in the helds of business and to educate the public to appreciate and demand higher ideals in those Helds through the promotion and advancement in collegiate institutions of courses leading to degrees in business administration. For the benefit of the brothers as well as their guests, Alpha Kappa Psi holds a series of professional meetings at which prominent men from the various fields of business speak. Social activity this year was far from lacking at A. K. Psi. The outstanding affair of the year was the formal reception held at the Park Lane Hotel on the evening of February 3. Football dances, rush dances, parties, and smokers com- pleted the social year for the fraternity. During the past year the following committees and their chairmen were appointed: Membership Committee, Austin Risingg Formal Committee, Xvalter P. Simesg Athletic Committee, VVilliam S.

The fraternity secured both its charter from the State and recognition from the University early in 1935. The functions of Alpha Sigma Chi are "to foster and promote a spirit of fra- ternity and mutual regard among its members, to strive for the development of a common zeal in furthering the achievements of its members in pursuit of honor and distinction, to inculcate, by example and emphasis, a true and profound appreciation of the doctrines of sportsmanship and fair play, and to seek the attainment of the highest degree of sympathy and cooperation in the problems of its membersf, During the past year, Alpha Sigma Chi continued to further the high ideals set forth by its founders by insisting that all its fraters become active in some phase of University life. In order to be of service to the student body of the school, the fraternity held open forums, discussions, and debates at the fraternity house. This year, social activities of Alpha chapter were more numerous than ever before. On November 4, 1939 Alpha Sigma Chi held its hfth annual formal dinner- dance in the Grand Ballroom of the Park Lane Hotel. On Memorial Day the second annual yearbook was distributed in connection with the fraternity's third annual yacht party to Glen Island and the XfVO1'lCl,S Fair. In commemoration of the Hfth anniversary of the fraternity, Alpha Sigma Chi inaugurated an annual Founders' Day dinner on March 31, 1940. OFFICERS Clzcmeellor . . ARTHUR M. SINGER Vice-Chancellor , .

It was founded at New York University on November 7, 1907. Soon after, the Beta chapter was formed at Northwestern University, and from then on chapters sprang up in practically all the major colleges and universities having schools or departments in the held of business. At the present time it is the largest fraternity in the Held of commerce and business administration, having approximately 60 chapters and a membership of about 13,000. lt ranks fourth in size among all professional fraternities and is the nineteenth largest men's fraternity among both the professional and general fraternities. D Because of its rapid growth and scattered chapters, the fraternity soon found it necessary to establish a central ofnce at Chicago, Illinois. This office handles all matters relative to the fraternity as a whole, such as supplying individual chapters with all necessary forms, running the chapter efhciency contest, and the printing of the Deltnsig, a quarterly publication of the fraternity. The fra- ternity is governed by a Grand Council which is made up of alumni who have distinguished themselves in fraternity affairs. A national convention, more com- monly known as a Grand Chapter Congress, is held every three yearsg the latest one, the thirteenth, was at Philadelphia, Pa., in September, 1939. Although Delta Sigma Pi is primarily a professional fraternity, it has many social activities which help to form a well-balanced program. The two major social events are the New Year's Eve formal and the spring formal. These are supple- mented by numerous house parties throughout the year. There is always some- thing going on at the "house" Professional smokers are held once a month, at which time prominent men, usually in the business Held, are the speakers. These smokers are always constructive and are in line with the purposes for which the fraternity was founded. Head .Master . . VVILLIANI DURGIN Senior Warden . . JOHN OlDONNELL Chancellor . . . .

'L "pT1yll 'tv 'ii' Delta Phi Epsilon BET.-X CI-I.-XPTER ELTA PHI EPSILON, a national Christian fraternity, and the first Foreign Service fraternity, was founded at Georgetown University in 1919 by a group of young men who had the energy to devote themselves to international relations at a time when world affairs were severly strained. These men dedicated themselves to the proposition that the way to world peace was through greater international trade. Another aim and advocation of the group was the rehabilitating of the defunct Merchant Marine of the United States, Since its inception, the fraternity has continually grown, until now it has chapters in many leading colleges and universities throughout the country. The aims of the fraternity is to unite groups of young men who have selected Foreign Service as a career. Under the guidance of the fraternity, the brothers are given a distinctive foreign service atmosphere. Even in the face of great odds, Delta Phi Epsilon had the foresight to main- tain its belief in the peacemaking influence of international trade. As a result of their supreme efforts the once prevalent isolation policies are ever on the wane. Many of the graduate brothers of the fraternity are now pursuing active careers in various capacities in the Held of foreign trade. The brothers are so scattered over the world that it is often truly said, "The Sun Never Sets on Delta Phi Epsilon." OFFICERS Pyggjdgmf , .

It now consists of eight chapters in the larger universities and schools in the country and three alumni clubs located in the east, mid-west, and far-west. The purposes of this fraternity, as stated in its constitution, are "to foster the abolition of differences between men by means of education, to foster high ethical ideals in the professions of law and commerceg and to establish chapters of the fraternity in the various universities and schools of law and commerce." Open forums, discussions, and debates conducted by prominent business men and lawyers are the chief professional activities of Lambda Gamma Phi. In addi- tion, are held alumni meetings, at which distinguished alumni speak. One of the outstanding social affairs sponsored by the fraternity during the past year was the annual dinner dance held at the Hotel Delmonico on November 25 in conjunction with the New York Alumni Club and other Lambda Gamma Phi chapters in the east. Other social events of the past season were a series of informal dances, cocktail parties, and a boat ride up the Hudson. The eastern chapters acted as hosts to the entire fraternity during the con- vention which was held in New York in August. Alumni chapters are in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. OFFICERS Regent .

I' A ll Lambda Sigma Phi ALPHA CHAPTER L AMBDA SIGMA PHI has the distinction of being the first Christian social fraternity founded at the School of Commerce and the third fraternity established at the INashington Square Center. This fraternity originated from the "I'Vigwam Club" in 1910. Lambda Sig is a local fraternity, a member of Violet Skull, and is now in its thirty-first year at New York University. Brothers in Lambda Sigma Phi represent the various fields of business in their study at Commerce and are very active in student government, publications and other extra-curricular activities. The creed of Lambda Sigma Phi states, "Under the signet of Lambda to achieve honor and a good name. To storm the Halls of Knowledge and the Gallery of Fame with laughter, accepting alike success and failure, for both pass fieetly. To live lustily and joyously while we may. To be guided by the Greater and Lesser Lights of Lambda Sigma Phi. To sing or sorrow with our brothers helping each as he struggles and upholding his head as he faces the final accounting." In addition to the extensive professional activities of its brothers, Lambda Sigma Phi presented a varied and entertaining series of social functions through- out the year. The brothers enjoyed their annual formal at the pretentious Vander- bilt Hotel, monthly dances at the house, smokers, house parties and rush affairs. The chapter was active in a varied athletic schedule sponsored by Violet Skull including Bowling, Ping-pong, Basket Ball and Swimming tournaments. Lambda Sigma Phi once again closed the doors on a prosperous and successful fraternity year. OFFICERS President . . HOWARD ANDERSON Vice-President . . . RICHARD COLEMAN Recording Secretary . . .

C. On October 14, 1939, Phi Alpha chapters throughout the country gathered at their individual affairs to celebrate the twenty-fifth anniversary of the founding of the fraternity. Phi Alpha now has thirty undergraduate chapters and fifteen alumni clubs extending from Long Island to Los Angeles. In 1920 Theta chapter was founded at New York University to further the purposes of Phi Alpha-providing a basis for Jewish brotherhood with common ideals and interests and enabling individuals in college to accustom themselves to adult social and business relationships. Twenty years after, on March 14, 1940, Theta chapter congregated at Cafe Loyale to celebrate their twentieth anniversary. At this affair Theta chapter was awarded the Founder's Cup, which is given to the outstanding chapter in tl1e fraternity. Living in new quarters at 40A IfVashington Square South, Theta chapter has had an outstanding social season. The new house has been the site of many dances and social get-togethers. Among the dances at the house have been a hal- loween dance, a pledgee-frater dance, and a St. Valentine Day dance. The climax of the social program was a boat ride party. This year, for the first time, Theta chapter held a combined parents' affair. It had been the custom to have a Father and Son dinner, but with the increasing activity of the Mother's Club, it was decided to invite the mothers to attend also. This was held on March 14 in conjunction with the celebration of the winning of the Founder's Cup. In addition to social affairs, Phi Alpha conducts cultural meetings at which prominent men lead informal discussions. One of the most successful of these meetings was held at the Park Central Hotel with Professor Bryson as the main speaker. The Boola, the chapter's monthly magazine, is another feature in Phi A1pha's program. For the first time since the founding of Theta chapter, the Christmas issue of the Boola was in printed form.

Gamma Chapter of New York was originally known as Theta Sigma Phi. In June 1930 it merged with tl1e national "Sig Ep." Sig Ep stresses tl1e need for moral a11d social development. The individual abilities and capacities of its members are cultivated to uphold the name of Sigma Phi Epsilon on the campus and to impress other organizations with the sterling quality of manhood in the fraternity. Gamma Chapter of Sig Ep enjoyed two formals this year, in addition to the various informal dances, smokers, and parties. The chapter also actively par- ticipated in bowling, ping-pong, basketball, and swimming tournaments which were sponsored by the Violet Skull. OFFICERS President . . .

E. was originally founded at Wesleyan University Middletown, Connecticut, on December 5, 1870. There are now active chapters in many universities and colleges throughout the country. The expressed purpose of Theta Nu Epsilon fraternity is to bring together congenial and talented undergraduates. Accordingly, many of its members are outstanding in school activities. A member of the Violet Skull, T. N. E. has been active in various athletic and social functions offered by this society during the year. The fraternity par- ticipated in Skull bowling, basketball, swimming, ping-pong, track, and handball tournaments and compiled an enviable record in these events. Hotel Woodward provided the scene for both the fraternity's winter dance and the formal. Beside these enjoyable affairs, the brothers held various rush dances, parties, smokers, and open houses. This year marked another successful milestone in T. N. Efs parade of social and academic activities. President fist Termj . President Q2nd Termj . Vice-President. . . Treasurer . Historian .

Theta Chi UPSILON CHAPTER THETA CHI, a national Christian fraternity, was founded in 1856 at Norwich University. At the turn of the century the Beta Chapter at M.l.T. was admitted, and in quick succession many of the other houses, which make up a roll of fifty chapters placed strategically throughout the country, were given charters. Theta Chi at New York University is almost as old as the School of Com- merce itself. First it was the "Adelphine Crowd," then Phi Delta Sigma fraternity, and finally in 1917, Phi Delta Sigma was given a charter as the Upsilon chapter of Theta Chi. The first fraternity house was located at 25 Fifth Avenue. The present home of the chapter is at 8 Fifth Avenue. Theta Chi's motto is "Alma Mater first, and Theta Chi for Alma Mater." Upsilon has tried to prove true to that motto. Realizing the need for a more friendly collegiate atmosphere, Theta Chi has always emphasized the social phase of the fraternity.

Nu Chapter was formed at New York University in 1900, replacing two local sororities, Lambda Sigma Phi and Lambda Phi. The chief philanthropic work of the organization has been the care of crippled or under-privileged children in the Kentucky Mountains. In many of the larger cities, clinics have been equipped and maintained, hospital wards have been furnished, fresh-air cottages have been built, and needy families have been adopted and cared for. Each chapter, particularly in the alumnae groups, interests itself actively in philanthropic work of its own selection in the local community. Alpha Omicron Pi sorority seeks to strengthen the ideals of character, scholarship, and general ability among its members. During the school year the chapter's social activities consisted of a pledges' mothers tea, an active chapter mothers tea, a favorite professors tea, open house dances for individual fraternities, a fall and spring bridge party for the Kentucky Mountain Children, and an annual Christmas hen party. One of the most important events of the year is the formal dance, which this year was held at the St. Moritz in February. The final social event was a picnic held in June at the home of the president.

It was organized as a non- sectarian philanthropic sorority because of the divers religious views of its founders and because of its purpose of doing charitable good without regard to creed or sect. XfVith the admission of the Beta Chapter in 1918, the social aspects of the sorority grew, and a program of general expansion was inaugurated. How- ever, Phi Sigma Sigma still retains its initial motive of philanthropic effort. Phi Sigma Sigma now has eighteen active chapters and eleven aluinnae clubs through- out the country. The Gamma Chapter at New York University was founded in 1918. It, too, engages in both social and philanthropic activity. In addition to the eight rush teas that all sororities have each year, Phi Sigma Sigma has two formal dances, a mother-daughter tea, a Founders Day tea with the other New York chapters, and regional conferences and national conventions in alternate years. The 1940 national convention is going to be held in St. Louis, Missouri. Aside from the philanthropic work that the Phi Sigma Sigma national organization carries on, in which all the chapters participate, the chapter at New York University has its own work. The principal project is the awarding of the Phi Sigma Sigma prize of twenty-five dollars, which is given to a woman student at the end of her freshman year. This prize rotates among Wfashington Square College, the School of Commerce, and the School of Education. This year it will be awarded in Washington Square College, In addition the chapter has adopted a family. This needy family is provided with clothing, food baskets, and whatever else the chapter can give. OFFICERS Archon . . . VIOLA BERKO Vice-Archon . . GLADvs SUMNER Bursar ....

The Class of 1913 held its -junior Prom at the Hotel Majestic on Friday, April 26, 1912. T. Fitrpatrick was the chairman ol' that affair. Metro- politan newspapers were highly impressed with the junior Prom of the Class of 1921. Until the early l920,S the School of Coinmeree had only three classes- senior, junior, and freshman. However, when another class was added, it was essential to enlarge the social program. In 1926, the sophomore class held the first sophomore smoker. In 1933, for tl1e first time in the history of Commerce, the sophomore and freshman classes combined for a soph-frosh dance at the Park Central Hotel. Freshmen classes have also enjoyed the privilege of holding smokers and formals. On january 6, 1913 the freshman class held o11e ol' its first smokers at Cafe Boulevard. One of the outstanding Frosh Hops was the one held May 9, 1936 at Hotel Delmonico. Before the inception of the All-U Frolic, the only opportunity for an all- Commerce affair was the Winter Frolic. On December 17, 1926, at the Xfkfaldorf- Astoria Roof Garden, the first VVinter Frolic was held. Three years ago the all-University Frolic was originated at Xfkfasliington Square College. Students from all the divisions of New York University attend this dance. The All-U has been held each fall in tl1e main ballroom of the Waldorf- Astoria Hotel. In 1937, Russ Morgan and Hudson-DeLange and their orchestras supplied the music for the thousands of students present. The 1939 All-U Frolic was held as a Pre-Fordham dance. joe Marsella and Larry Clinton were the orchestras, and Bea VVain was the vocalist. Dennis Phillips of Mfashington Square College, Arnold Eisinger of Commerce, and jack Koteen of the Heights were the co-chairmen. All U. Frolic ON the night of November 24, just a week before the traditional N.Y.U.- Fordham game, some eighteen hundred couples from the various schools of New York University turned out for merrymaking at the fourth annual All- University Fall Frolic. Larry Clinton and his band provided the "sweet', music for the ultra- sophisticated students, and joe Marcella and his band "went to town" for the "swing-mad" students. VVith each band alternating for half hour periods, the dancers were able to hop and glide till two in the morning.

A call for applicants to enter the Quest for Exquisite was published several months ago in the Commerce Bulletin. In response to this college wide appeal a large number of snapshots were submitted. Immediately we were faced with the difficult task of selecting the most beautiful co-eds from an imposing list of eligibles. After a preliminary selection, twenty co-eds were selected to be photo- graphed. In order to be sure that the most beautiful girls be included in this section, we were determined to select a judge well acquainted with the qualities of aesthetic beauty. Our choice, therefore, was Gilbert Bundy, well known illustrator and cartoonist for Esquire and many other famous publications. Although he is regarded as one of the foremost men in his field today, he gladly gave his time to the task of selecting the fairest of the fair which we proudly present in this section. 291 filly ,Queille Qclhen ffm 760422 QUWLGLULLM Jim dine FQ ' Jim gm, ,Lf f W, A-. , 1 gf- -, 1 N 1 NJ J r ,:f,."- 2. - ef r 1"':.,.Y 'NA-,.'4, ' .ft Qui, Q5 :ggi . ,wsfqi H f' at-1 'fix Q " 11-f: '- '- -jfib rf Ebb- ni dvi ,.f:1.-xl. 1 F ' :ffl -il'-,ff l-lf 'QE A ' 4 'jmfvsi-,L , f"'.' r fl, .kv?.1'Q L-:TFGXE-1: ' 1'5!'5'1. ,.7,i, ':.f:,-I 1: kz-My ..,.'."f 1. --LE Qi: ' ff' fif"1w.-5.

KELLY President Commerce Alumni Association HERE are two things that stand out in my mind concerning the Alumni of the School of Commerce at New York Uniyersity. The lirst and no doubt most im- portant, concerns the association of one Alumnus with another. During this year, when our neighbors across the sea find it so hard to endure and live with one another in a happy cooperative state, it is most encouraging to find quite the opposite on our side of the water. Especially is this true with the Alumni of New York University. I know of no Alumni group of any other University, where there is so much loyalty, nor of any other group where so many Alumni are employed by other former students as at the School of Commerce. This is certainly a great tribute to the teachings of our great friend John T. Madden and his Associates. Our Alumni know of the extensive thorough preparation for business that was made possible through their student days at the School of Commerce, and when they have the need for an additional member to their organization, they know that the man best qualined will be a man who has had the opportunity of the same practical education that they received. T The other point thatstands out is that of the preponderance of youngAlumni who partake in our numerous activities. The President, Secretary, and Treasurer for this year, all graduated in the last fifteen years. This has given us an abund- ance of enthusiasm and modern ideas. It is my sincere wish that all of you who are graduating this June will take advantage of the splendid association that we can offer you. Mfe have no set dues. An Alumnus becomes a member of our Association through whatever contribu- tion he can make. Those of you who will answer to our appeal next year, on our Alumni Fund campaign will, I assure you, be rewarded for your contribution many times over. With best wishes for a most successful business career. ROBERT W. KELLY, President 306 O Acknowledgments HE printed word is not broad enough in scope to express the Editor's thoughts of appreciation to all those who have helped in any way to make his year a pleasant one. Many members of the stall' have been awarded Violet Scrolls for their ready aid and willing service. To the many others who have generously donated their time and energies, the Editor wishes to extend his sincere and deep appreciation. To Professor C. Hayes Sprague, who was always willing to take "time out" from his numerous other activities to help the Editor solve his many technical problems. To Professor Lloyd E. Dewey, who assumed many of the Violet responsibili- ties and who was always ready with words of advice and encouragement when things looked darkest. To Bob Kelly, who has been helping struggling Violet editors for the past decade, for his sincere interest, capable suggestions, and invaluable aid. To Seymour Zee, our demon action photographer, for his expert work and cooperation. To George Schiebler and George Kastner for their conscientious service. To Profesors Clyne, McKee, and Buckham for the many hours spent reading over Violet copy. To Harry Mellor, Fred Fuchs, Charles Allen, Olive Plunkett, Doris Trudeau, and other members of Kelly's staff for their willing aid. To Dr. Theodore Jones, University Historian, and his assistant Mr. Smith for their cooperation in providing pictures of years gone by. To Mr. Irving Ghidnofl, Mr. Grey, Miss Harvey, Miss Chidnoff, and others of Chidnoff Studios for their patience and cooperation. To Miss Ruth Downing for her excellent handling of the annual dinner. To the members of the faculty and their secretaries for their ready assistance. And to all those who helped in any way to make the Editor's task an easier ore. THOMAS A. MULVANEY, JR. Editor, 1940 Violet -.4 Bookstore and Commons New York University students who are served by the University Press Book- stores appreciate greatly the Book Exchange. Used books as well as new books may be secured and books no longer needed by the student may be disposed of readily and profitably. Students are served the finest foods possible at Commons cafeteria. Its bright and cheery atmosphere makes it a pleasant place for lunch. The Commons was enlarged this year to provide for the ever-increasing number of students that patronize it. 309 Standard Texts By New York U. Men Retail Advertising and Sales Promotion, by CHARLES M.
