MONG the strongest and most tenacious instincts of
mankind is the hunger for individual liberty. Through-
out the recorded history of civilization, our forefathers
have engaged in an almost continuous series of struggles to
win and maintain greater freedom of thought, of word and of
action. Seldom did they win these struggles without blood-
shed, never without sacrifice. The substantial privileges they
gained -- freedom of the person, freedom of conscience and
worship, freedom of speech and the press, civic and political
freedom, freedom of commerce and trade - these are among
the heritages we have enjoyed in greater degree than any other
people. We have come to regard them as our natural and in-
In our zeal to extend and defend our individual freedom
we have sometimes forgotten that its exercise demands self-
restraint, lest it infringe upon the freedom of others. We have
too complacently witnessed the curtailment of the liberties of
our neighbors. Particularly is this true in the field of commerce.
Now at last it has become apparent that freedom of commerce
- the privilege of exchanging goods and services in a free
market - is not only an important liberty in itself but also
one of the strongest safeguards for all other liberties.
It is highly fitting, therefore, that this . . . Commerce Violet
should be dedicated to Liberty. The spirit of liberty still lives
among those European peoples who have lost the substance
of their individual liberties. It will not be diminished in
America by threats from outside, nor by the internal restric-
tions of individual liberties that may temporarily be required.
Instead we confidently hope that it will eventually receive
world-wide recognition, that individuals and nations will
accept the responsibilities as well as the privileges of liberty.

want you to feel that our thoughts go with you. We

your undergraduate days here. I wish you success and
happiness in the days that lie ahead.

.51 11 MESSAGE ERoM THE DEAN
WISH to congratulate the men and, particularly,
the women students who have carried on in the
spirit of Commerce tradition while most of our men
are away in one form of war service or another. I am
confident that your contribution to the post-war world
will be equally as significant as that of the men and
women who preceded you.
A sound and good education is the firm basis for a
fruitful life, It provides the mainspring for all those
things for which we strive. The challenge of the peace
we hope will soon arrive is more inspiring than the
challenge of today. Equipped with the education you
will receive here, you can go forth into the new world
confident that with your ability and goodwill you will
solve successfully the difficult problems which will
confront us all.

Dean Johnson died, John T. Madden became the new head of the School, which
was to attain an enrollment of over 10,000 students and of over 200 faculty members
under his leadership.
The new School of Commerce building was opened. The B.C.S. degree was liberal-
ized by the addition of a full year of cultural courses, a four year curriculum leading to
the degree of Bachelor of Science was offered, The Institute of International Finance was
founded at the Wall Street Division.
The famous owls, now seen atop the School of Commerce entrance and in the

XACCOUNTING: Founded in 1900, at the fe-
quest of the New York State Society of Certified
Public Accountants, the Accounting Department of
the School of Commerce has steadily grown into one
of the most outstanding accounting departments in
Courses in Accounting, Law, and Economics were
first offered at night, subsequently, a day session was
added, the curriculum was enlarged, and the Depart-
ment organized mainly for the purpose of training
accountants. The acting chairman of the Accounting
Department at its inception was Professor William
H. Dennis, who was succeeded by Professor john T.
Wildman and Dean john T. Madden. The present
chairman, Professor Arthur H. Rosenkampff, has
served in that capacity since 1922. The faculty mem-
bers are all men of wide practical experience. The
accounting program is designed primarily in two
parts: the elementary courses which give the student
a general knowledge of the subject and the advanced
courses which prepare the student for the Certified
Public Accountant examinations. The practice of pre-
senting the last four problems in the Advanced Ac-
counting Problem course under actual C. P. A. exam-
ination conditions is one of the most recent innovations
in the Departments methods. The pre-eminence of the
School of Commerce, Accounts, and Finance among
collegiate schools of business is largely due to the
excellence of the Department of Accounting. Both
its world-wide reputation and the highly successful
business careers of its many former students testify
to the success of the Accounting Department.

BANKING AND FINANCE: Even before the
Banking and Finance Department was organized at
the School of Commerce, Accounts, and Finance,
Dean Joseph French Johnson, the first Dean of the
School, gave a course in corporation finance. Because
of increased demands of the student body, an invest-
ment course was offered by Frank A. Vanderlif in
1904, real estate, by Philip A. Benson, and insur-
ance, by Edward R. Hardy, in 1905g and credit and
collection, by David Golieb, in 1913. Dr. Charles W.
Gerstenberg headed the Department in 1915 and
under his direction a course in Federal taxes was
added in 1919. Professor Major B. Foster, formerly
of the Economics Department, became chairman of
the Banking and Finance Department in 1923.
In 1936, real estate courses were removed and given
'a special department of their own, and the tax courses
were incorporated with the regular program of the
At present, the Banking and Finance Department
includes in its offerings courses in corporation Hnance,
credits and collections,.commercial and international
banking, investments, security analysis, and insurance.

BUSINESS ENGLISH: A pioneer in the field
of business writing, Professor Hotchkiss gave the
first course in the Department of Business English in
1908. At that time the idea was advanced that stu-
dents of business could best learn to write, not by
learning the dry theory of rhetoric that had charac-
terized college English courses in the past, but by
solving practical writing problems, such as those en-
countered in an every day business office. This idea
has been carried forward by the School of Commerce
to the present day, and has long since been adopted
by other professional colleges.
An important reason for the effectiveness of the
instruction in the Department of Business English is
the requirement that teachers chosen for the work
must be trained not only in English, but in business
as well, so that the practical aims of the course will
be fulfilled. Another reason is that all forms of busi-
ness expression are treated as Business English, so
that students are taught not only how to write busi-
ness letters and various kinds of business reports, but
also how to speak before such audiences as a business
man or woman may be called upon to address.
ln recent years the English Placement Examination
given as a requirement for admission to the School
of Commerce, has been used as a means of determin-
ing the particular courses in English by which the
individual student could benefit most. The examina-
tion has served effectively to raise the standards of
student English in all the departments of the School.
Assisted by a staff of specialists, Professor A. Earl
Manville, chairman of the Department of Business
English, has been unwavering in his maintenance of
standards of English as rigid as can be found any-

ECONOMICS: The economic department of the
School of Commerce, Accounts, and Finance is the
parent of all Economics Departments and until 1923,
there was no other at New York University. At
present there are three additional ones-at the Uni-
versity College of Arts and Pure Science, Wfashington
Square College of Arts and Science, and the School
The first chairman of the Department in this
School was Dr. Wfillard Fisher, followed by Dr. James
Magee and Professor Wfalter Spahr, the present
chairman was appointed to that position in 1928,
In nature. the Department is a social science depart-
ment in a professional school and covers the conven-
tional basic economic questions characteristic of the
Since Dr. Spahr became chairman, departmental
questions have been submitted to all statutory mem-
bers of the staff in the interests of democracy of ad-
ministration as a change from the early practice of
having the chairman act as a departmental head.
Greater stress, than in former years, has been laid
upon the importance of training in statistics, now
three consecutive years of statistics are offered. In
peace times the Department staff, comprising usually
twenty or more members, is aided by six graduate
assistants-two senior and four junior assistants.
Witli the advent of war, several changes have been
made, including the introduction of certain courses
devoted particularly to the economic problems of
war-for example, courses on Wait Economy and
Price Regulation and Price Policies.
GENERAL COURSES: Prior to September 1926,
almost every course of study offered by the School
was of a strictly professional nature-accounting,
banking, and management, for examples. For sev-
eral years preceding the inauguration of the General
Course Group, however, a feeling had been growing
among the alumni and the faculty that the curriculum
should be broadened to include cultural courses. The
alumni felt that they themselves would have been
more successful both in business life and in social life
if they had had the opportunity of taking courses in
such fields as literature, history, psychology, and
The faculty had previously arrived at the same con-
clusion and were glad to have the concurrence of
the Alumni. As a result, the General Course Group
was inaugurated and the courses that then comprised
it became part of the curriculum in September 1926.
The Group now offers courses of study in the fields
of history, art, psychology, science, mathematics, so-
ciology, government, public speaking, ethics, litera-
ture, vocabulary improvement, and logic. Assistant
Dean Edward Jones Kilduff has been chairman of
the Group since its inception.
At the request of students, Outlines of Literature
Coriginally a four-point coursej was later divided
into two four-point courses: one now known as Mas-
terpieces of English and American Literature, the
other as European Literature: Classical, Medieval and
Modern. Also, at the request of students who desired
advanced work in psychology, Present Day Develop-
ments in the Application of Psychology was recently

JOURNALISM: The Department of journalism
is celebrating its thirty-third anniversary at the School
of Commerce, Accounts, and Finance. Inaugurated
by Dean Joseph F. johnson in 1911, this Department
is one of the outstanding departments at New York
james Melvin Lee was the first Department head.
Under his leadership the scope and quality of the
courses offered were greatly improved. Professor Lees
book "History of American journalism," was used
until a few years ago in the Department of journal-
ism. During Professor Leeis administration, such men
as Joyce Kilmer and Alexander Woollcott were mem-
bers of the faculty.
The journalism Department progressed rapidly.
After the death of Professor Lee in 1929, Professor
Henry Bailey Rathbone became chairman. Under Pro-
fessor Rathbone, the enrollment of Journalism majors
soon approached that of other departments in the
School of Commerce.
Professor Gregory Mason succeeded Professor Rath-
bone in 1941 as chairman of the journalism Depart-
ment. Professor Mason is a leader in the field of
journalism, and has written numerous books and
articles. His latest book is "South of Yesterdayf'
the story of his eighth anthropological expedition to
the American Tropics.
In 1942 two new courses, News Photography and
Latin-American journalism, were added to the jour-
The journalism Department has attained its posi-
tion among the leaders in the field through the com-
bined efforts of its members, all prominent and active
in public affairs. They are men and women who have
helped mold, create and influence modern opinion.

LAW: Courses in business law were first inaugu-
rated in the School of Commerce, Accounts, and Fi-
nance in 1902 under the direction of Professor Cleve-
land F. Bacon, who retired from the chairmanship of
the Law Department in 1939. Professor Bacon was
succeeded by Associate Dean George Rowland Col-
lins, who assumed the chairmanship for the following
year. In 1940, Associate Professor .john M. Mac-
Gregor became chairman of the Department of the
Law of Commerce and Finance. At the present time,
Dr. MacGregor is a Major in the Chemical Vlarfare
Division of the United States Army, and Assistant
Professor Stewart W. Rowe is now acting chairman
of the Law Department.
The courses in this department have a three-fold
purposeg to train the student to perceive legal storms
when they are still small clouds on the horizon, to
cause the student to realize the limitations of his or
her legal knowledge and the wisdom of seeking com-
petent legal advice as insurance against trouble, and
to train the student to analyze and to reason.
The formation of contracts, the use of commercial
paper, the operation of partnerships and corporations.
the relationship of agent and principal. bank and de-
positor, and principal and surety are a few of the
subjects discussed in these courses.
The practice of giving monthly quizzes and term
problems was introduced in 1939. This has enabled
students to keep abreast of the changes that are con-
stantly occurring in the various branches of the law.
The teaching personnel of this Department is com-
posed of practicing lawyers with years of experience.
They are able through the discussion of actual court
cases to make the courses interesting by presenting
the practical side of the law.

U'iVIANAGEMENT: The Management Department
was organized in 1916 under the direction of Dr. Lee
Galloway. ln 1921, shortly after the close of Wtmrltl
Wzir I. Professor Vlfilliam B. Cornell was called from
active practice in industry to become chairman of the
Department. In 1957 it was changed to the Depart-
ment of Management and lndustrial Relations to in-
dicate the broadened scope of the work of the
During the past twelve years or more, due to the
increased growth and power of labor unions and to
the far reaching effects of certain social legislation,
the personnel and the industrial relations phases of
management have taken a place in the first ranks of
The courses offered by the Department of Man-
agement and lndustrial Relations reflect this growing
emphasis on the human relations in industry. It has
pioneered in offering such courses as The Techniques
of Collective Bargaining and others. Today, the De-
partment offers one of the broadest and finest training
programs in its field, second to none.
A still further development is under way with plans
for a new project commencing September 1944. The
Department then expects to offer several new courses
such as: The Techniques of Time and Motion Study
and Work Simplificationg Supervisor Training, Tech-
niques of Factory Layout: etc., as a part of a new
well-rounded program in production nianagement to
meet present and post-war needs.
The basic management course is a pre-requisite for
a degree in business administration, and as such is
very well attended. All the instructors in the depart-
ment take a hand in teaching management l-2.
MARKETING: The widely diversified courses of
the Marketing Department permit specialization in
two major fields, Domestic Marketing and Foreign
Marketing. The real nucleus of the department was
formed by four courses in advertising originally of-
fered by the Advertising Mens League of New York
and transferred bodily to the New York University
School of Commerce, Accounts, and Finance about
1915. ln 1915 the department was formally organ-
ized as the Department of Advertising and Market-
ingg it has since been expanded so that it now in-
cludes courses covering practically all the activities
involved in the distribution of goods. Among the
courses are some of scientific character, such as Mar-
ket Research, Psychology of Advertising, and Market-
ing Campaignsg others are creative or practical, such
as Copy Writing, Layout, Typography, and Produc-
Professor George Burton Hotchkiss, one of the
pioneer teachers of advertising, was the first Chairman
of the department, and continued in that position
until 1928. He was followed by Professor Hugh E.
Agnew, who came to the School of Commerce, Ac-
counts, and Finance in 1920, and who became Pro-
fessor Emeritus last year. At that time Professor
Hotchkiss resumed the chairmanship.
The name of the department was changed in 1925
to the Department of Marketing, since this term was
sufficiently inclusive to cover not only advertising and
sales management but the field of foreign trade as
well. The courses in foreign trade which, for a time,
were given in a separate department, were included
in the Department of Marketing in 1955.

SECRETARIAL STUDIES: ln 1915-1914 sev-
eral special courses in the field of Secretarial Studies
were introduced at the School, including a course in
typewriting. ln 1914 to 1915 a combination course
was offered, and in the following year Dean Kilduff
and Mr. john B. Swinney introduced courses in Public
and Private Secretarial Duties.
An expansion of the program in Secretarial Studies
was really undertaken in 1952, keeping with the tra-
dition of the School of Commerce, Accounts, and
Finance to entrust the developments of new work
to one of the existing departments during a period
of probation, the secretarial courses were placed under
the jurisdiction of the Management Department with
Professor William B. Cornell as Chairman.
The Department of Secretarial Studies was organ-
ized as a separate division in 1957 under the chair-
manship of Miss Anne G. Corrigan. Many modern
office machines have been installed in the well-
equipped laboratories to accommodate classes in Dic-
taphone and Ediphone, duplicating, machine calcula-
tion, Bling, billing, and switchboard operation since
the Department was organized.
Following the retirement of Miss Corrigan in 1941,
Miss Kathryn Wfellbaum, a graduate of Indiana Uni-
versity who joined the faculty as an instructor in
1959, has been promoted to Assistant Professor and
is now Chairman of the Secretarial Studies Depart-

PUBLIC UTILITIES AND TRANSPORTA-
TION: The program of instruction of the Depart-
ment of Public Utilities and Transportation is aimed
at giving a thorough training in the fundamentals in
the management and regulation of these important
industries. This department was established in 1956
under the chairmanship of Professor Herbert B.
Courses offered range from the survey level to
those concerned in a specialized way with every im-
portant business and governmental aspect. Courses
dealing particularly with the problems of various
forms of transportation, rail, water, motor are being
supplemented with specialized courses in air trans-
port. A full program of instruction in the field of
traflic management and interstate commerce law has
The contemporary aspect of public utility and
transportation problems necessitates a constant change
in subject matter and course materials. The Depart-
ment of Public Utilities and Transportation has ac-
cumulated a great wealth of research materials for
the use of its students as a by-product of its con-
tinuous contact with governmental agencies and pri-
REAL ESTATE: A Real Estate course was first
odered in the School of Commerce, Accounts, and
Finance in l904, the first in any university. Interest
in real estate greatly increased necessitating an ex-
pansion of this held under the guidance of the De-
partment of Banking and Finance. The Department
of Real Estate was established under the chairman-
ship of Dr. Herbert B. Dorau in the fall of 1936.
Although many additional courses have been of-
fered from time to time, the basic curriculum of the
Department consists of the courses in Urban Land
Economics, Real Estate Principles, Real Estate Financ-
ing and Investments, Building Management, Real
Estate Brokerage and Real Estate Appraising. These
basic courses deal with the principal branches of the
real estate business.

September to February
Pwfidefll of Senior Cffzn'
February to june
HERE have been many definitions and descrip-
tions of the word, "Senior". A senior, we've
been told, is a student . . . who sells his old
books at a profit . . . who doesn't borrow cigarettes
. . . who uses his full allotment of cuts . . . who
thinks he's entitled to complimentary tickets to class
affairs . . who thinks he knows the inside Cor shouldj
to every political move.
But if the members of the graduating class of
1944 were asked for their definition, it most prob-
ably would be, "A Senior is a student who wishes
he could be a Freshman."
The last four years have given us enough material
for a century of dreams. The proms and the hops,
the dinners at the Fifth Avenue Hotel, the parties
at Christmas and Easter, the clubs and the publica-
tions, the Hen Parties and Smokers, the Sororities and
Fraternities were little flashes of sunlight which
peeped through a college career darkened by the
shadows of war. The Senior Class won't forget the
last four years because they want to forget about
The pandemonium which preceded the Frosh elec-
tions back in November, 1940 made the third-term
question seem unimportant by comparison. Automo-
biles parked near the school broke out in a rash of
political posters. In the nearby fraternity houses, older
brothers were giving last minute instructions to the
freshman candidates. In the evening, a torchlight
procession paraded through Washington Square Park.
Balloting the next day was decisive. President Mel
Askenase, Vice-President Mal Hochenberg, Treasurer
Ray Kupchinsky, Secretary Renee Gordon and His-
torian Ronnie Gold took office immediately.
It wasn't long after elections that the Frosh-Soph
Tug-O'-War was held. Defeated on the lirst try, we
came back to win the next two engagements and the
subdued Sophs were obliged, according to tradition,
to kiss the tarnished toe of Garibaldi.
Will you ever forget the sight of Mel Askenase
when he appeared at the Smoker at the Broadway
Hofbrau? He had been kidnapped by the Sophomores
on the preceding day and was swathed in bandages -
nothing else. Co-chairman Wally Schwartz and Bert
Babbitt introduced "Doc" Nielsen as guest speaker.
After dinner the fellows snake-danced up Broad-
way to the Hotel Victoria where the girls were hold-
ing their Hen Party. Zara Wagner and Freda Belagore
were co-chairmen and the guest speakers were Pro-
fessor Sprague, Doctor Holbert, and Assistant Dean
Reutiman. Formalities were quickly suspended and
We had our own newspaper, too. The Frosh News,
edited by Howard S. Kane, Jerry Gold, and joe
Shenker, appeared bi-weekly and amazed the Stu-
dent Council by supporting itself with advertising.
Those Frosh dances were great. The upperclass
wolves would flock to them to see what the new crop
of co-eds looked like. The fellows were annoyed, but
the girls liked it fine.
Then, after Christmas vacation, the Vigilante Com-
mittee headed by Gordy Phillips and Hal Adler kid-

escaped, but was captured the next evening as he
entered the Soph Smoker. He was dressed ridiculously
and herded to the Hen Party.
And to climax a year of fantastic festivities, the
Frosh Hop was held on May lOth at the Hotel Edison
with Dave Greenberg as chairman.
Wasn't it a nice feeling to return in September?
No longer did we feel timid and insignificant. Fa-
miliar faces and gracious greetings had taken care
of that. Class officers had been elected back in the
spring and therefore President Joe Shenker, Vice-
President Mal Hochenberg, Treasurer Bob Vlfolfowitz,
and Secretary Dotty Meltzer lost no time in planning
the years activities.
Under the chairmanship of Buddy Lowenfeld and
Gordy Phillips, the social committee sponsored a
dance every few weeks.
For the time, the Smoker and Hen Parties were
made a joint affair under a committee headed by
Howie Kane, Bernie Tuttleman, Sylvia Grossman and
Gail Silvert. The faculty guests were Assistant Dean
Gladys Reutiman, Dr. jules Backman, Dr. Hayward
J. Holbert, and Professor C. Hayes Sprague.
On Sunday, December 7th, the laps attacked Pearl
Harbor. The next morning a different student body
returned to school. Some were shocked by the swift
impact of events and others were dazed by the un-
certain blackness of the immediate future. Classes
were called off at ll:OO A.M., so that we could hear
President Roosevelt ask Congress for a Declaration
of War. Serious-faced students gathered in the Ed
Auditorium, the luncheonettes, and the cars around
School while the radio blasted the historic message.
Many students enlisted in the armed forces imme-
diately, Others, upon the advice of Professors, decided
to finish their studies in order to be of greater service
to their country. The students who remained in School
saw things in a clearer light. Politics were dismissed
because they were petty. War activities committees
were formed. The School of Commerce went to war
against the Axis.
It won't be easy to forget the Soph Frolic which
was held on Saturday evening, April 18th, in the
Embassy Room of the Hotel Ambassador. Guest of
honor was Eleanor French who was escorted by chair-
man jerry Gold and Joe Samuelson.
And then our junior year - the last school year
for many of the Class of '44 Almost the entire class
returned to School that September. Draft boards had
touched only a few men and a large portion of the
student body had enlisted in the Army and Navy
President Jerry Gold, Vice-President Marty Elkind,
Historian Dave Greenberg, Treasurer Gail Silvert,
Secretary Jeanne Gleberman, and Council Represen-
tative Buddy Lowenfeld were the leaders of the class.
The formal Junior Promenade was held at the
Hotel Pierre Roof Garden. Assistant Deans Kilduff
and Schiffer headed the entertainment harmonizing on
"You Are My Sunshine." Chairman Mel Marx and
Joe Schenker provided a full evening of fun headed
by the appearance of radio singer Diane Courtney,
who was escorted by Guest Star Chairman Martin
Among the outstanding Juniors were Dick Galef.

Before we knew it, we were seniors. And every
one wondered where the last three years had van-
ished. Being a senior had its advantages. No longer
were we undergraduates in the School of Commerce.
We WERE the School of Commerce.
Members of the class elected to Sphinx, Senior
Honorary Fraternity, were Al Harris, Jerry Gale,
Lester Abberbock, Marty Ragaway, Mary Lou Baker,
Jeanne Gleberman, and Dotty Meltzer.
The officers of the Senior Class were Presidents
Jeanne Gleberman and Dotty Meltzer, Vice-President
Annette Eichman, Treasurer Jerry Gale, Secretary
Stan Acker, and Historian Freda Belagore, and Senior
Representatives Rollie Jacobson. Martin Ragaway, and
Al Harris, President of the Student Council, will
be remembered for excellent executive ability which
more than anything else kept the Day Organization
alive. Al was unable to complete his term in office,
being called to the armed forces late in April. Dotty
Meltzer served as acting President for the remainder
of the semester.
The highlight of the year was the Senior-Junior
Smoker and Hen Party which was held on March Slst
at the Hotel New Yorker. More than 200 students
applauded guest entertainers Vaughn Monroe, noted
orchestra leader, June Havoc, who was currently
starred in the hit, "Mexican Hayridewg and Maureen
Cannon, singer at the Copacabana Club. Rollie
Jacobson and Sydelle Eisman were chairmen of the
affair and the guests were secured by Guest Star
Chairman Bernie Golding.
Seniors who were outstanding included Jerry Gale,
editor-in-chief of the Violet and Co-advisor to the
Freshman class, Eugene Friedman, editor-in-chief of
Varietiesg Lester Abberbock, business manager of the
Bulletin, Mary Lou Baker, president of the League of
Women, and Dotty Meltzer, who succeeded Jeanne
Gleberman as senior prexy.
Seniors named to the Student Hall of Fame and
who will be included in "Whos Who in Collegiate
American were Jerry Gale, Al Harris, Martin Rag-
away, Lester Abberbock, Bertha Schweller, Jeanne
Gleberman, Madeline Kurzrock, Mary Lou Baker, and
No, the Senior class won't forget about these things.
They won't want to forget about them.
NTERING the School of Commerce, Accounts,
and Finance in 1958, the night class of 1944
immediately became leaders in school affairs.
Many of the class participated actively in the admin-
istration and operation of School functions. Now, after
completing six years of study at New York University
the members of the Class of '44 can look back and
find six years of memories they shall never forget.
After spending their freshman year becoming ac-
quainted with the School, the class members really
became active at the beginning of their sophomore
year. Led by Phil Oetting and Frank Lynford the
class lost no time. After a full year of fun, class
activities were climaxed when the evening sopho-
mores gathered with the day sophomores for their
annual Sophomore Hop. This social boasted the
largest turnout of night class students in the school
history. The sophs danced to soft and sweet music
of Harvey Geller's orchestra. The School spirit which
has been embodied in the "44ers" since their en-
trance into the School of Commerce was very much
in evidence that year and is deserving of praise and
Many evening students left School to join the
armed services. Despite their loss, the remaining
members carried on with a spirit of co-operation and

enthusiasm. They were active not only in class and
all evening affairs, but in War Bond drives and rallies.
Under the fine direction of Lothar Klestadt, presi-
dent, and Richard Simpson, treasurer, the evening
Juniors dug in and did a wonderful job of putting
over the Junior Prom in co-operation with the day
class. As usual this junior Prom Supper Dance cli-
maxed the year's social activities. The big event was
held at the Hotel Pierre. Diane Courtney, NBC Blue
Network star, entertained and danced with the boys.
Milton Berle, laugh clown of stage and screen, added
gags to the festivities. Romo Vincent, popular roly-
poly night club comedian, and jerry Cooper, radio
singing star were on hand during the evening. joe
Moss, society favorite provided the music. Chairman
Mel Marx and Joe Shenker set up a clearing house
so that the boys going to the affair were able to find
out which girls in the same neighborhood were going
to the affair. In this way two and three couples were
able to share cabs and private cars.
Then came the Senior year. Bob Sanford was elected
President of the Senior Class, J. Paul Hendricks, Treas-
urer, Richard Herman, Secretary, and Naomi Schatz,

Witli deflated prices and inflated fun in the offing,
about 150 persons attended and spent a wonderful
evening eating and dancing and viewing the antics
of joe Winstcmn versatile master of ceremonies.
The feature of the evening was the appearance of
lovely Sunny O'Dea, and Joel Marston, stars of "Pal
joey" and "junior Miss" respectively. Both stars were
then appearing in the Broadway hit production "Wall-
lloweru. Miss O'Dea was crowned Queen of the
Ball. Later in the evening, Miss O'Dea and Mr.
Marston performed a scene from the show "Wz1ll-
flower." Faculty guests were Dr, Holbert, Professor
jenkins, and Mr. Rubino.
Co-chairmen were jack Gottlieb and Robert San-
ford, who were responsible for the success of the
affair. Bernie Golding was Guest Star Chairman and
escorted Miss O'Dea and Mr. Marston.
Everyone realized that this was the last college affair
and a feeling of fraternity prevailed This was the
farewell party for the Night Senior Class. Six years
of associations and six years of friendships were
brought together in one room, It was a great farewell.

HE Class of l945 entered its Junior year with
enthusiasm and high hopes for the semester and
with confidence in its ability to handle student
affairs. Bertha Schweller, President of the Accounting
Club was elected President of the Junior Class.
Despite the confusion and irregularities brought
about by the war the members of the class aided the
Junior Class officers with fine spirit and cooperation.
Many of the ofhcers participated actively in School
functions. Marilyn Greenberg, chairman of the Book
Drive, was vice-president of the class while Barbara
Gordon, member of Beta Gamma Sigma was secre-
taryg Madeline Kurzock, vice-president of the League
of Women was treasurerg Eleanor Forin, president
of Psi Chi Omega was historian.

The highlight of the year was the Junior-Senior
Hen Party and Smoker which was held March Slst
at the Hotel New Yorker. Vaughn Monroe, June
Havoc, and Maureen Cannon were the 'outstanding
guest entertainers. The students arrived en masse to
dance to the melodies of Charles Patterson and his
orchestra. Corsages of red roses for the girls, and
carnation boutonieres for the men were distributed
to the guests as souvenirs for the evening. Sydell
Eisman, a junior, and Roland Jacobson, a senior,
were co-chairmen of the affair.
Many members of the junior class were important
in the extra-curricular activities of the school. Francine
Stanger, co-editor of the Commerce Bulletin with
Jerome Evans, served as editor-in-chief of the Com-
merce Book. Jerry also held the position of Junior
Athletic Representative and editor-in-chief of the
Servicemenls Bulletin. Robert Elkin was Junior class
representative to the Student Council. Ina Rosenberg
was chairman of the League of Women Faculty Tea,
News Editor of Varieties, and co-chairman of the
War Bond and Stamp Committee at the School.
Tappings to the junior honorary societies Sigma
Eta Phi and Alpha Phi Sigma were held in Lassman
Hall on March 15th. The members of Sigma Eta Phi
elected seven girls, instead of the usual six. They
were Ferne Bramhall, Madeline Kurzrock, Eleanor
Forin, Ina Rosenberg, Francine Stanger, and Margaret
Eienberg. The Junior men elected to Alpha Phi Sigma
were Murray Fried, Robert Elkin, and Jerome Evans.
Dr. Jules Backman was the faculty member chosen
for Sigma Eta Phi, and Professor Dale Horton was
tapped to Alpha Phi Sigma.
War activities led the list of Alpha Phi Sigma
activities supported by the juniors. Madeline Kurz-
rock and Francine Stanger were chairmen of the War
Efforts Committee for the first semester, while Doro-
thy Livingston guided it during the second half. The
Varsity show, directed by Stanley Goodman, and the
Commerce Servicemen's Center, headed by Ruth
Bitter, came under the supervision of the War Efforts
Committee. A pin-up boy contest, directed by Cecile
Ginsburg and Thelma Golden, met with great favor
Arnold C. Brackman was Art and Production Ed-
itor of the Violet, and Assistant Editor of Production
magazine. Other junior Class members who worked
.ans ", .
on School publications were Cyril jacquit, Shirley
Mentz, Margie Abberman, Maxine Phillips, Adelaide
Levine, Rosalyn Gerendasy, and Lucille Dreyfuss.
The class of '45 achieved much success in the field
of athletic competition and intra-murals.
Holding their hard earned reputations as an active
class, the juniors bolstered the morale of Commerce
students and achieved brilliant success. To the indi-
vidual members of the class of '45, it was not
"school as usual" but rather "classes as usual - stu-
dent participation full speed ahead." It is with this
School spirit and honest endeavor that the junior
class looks forward to a successful senior year.

FTER the traditional indoctrination ceremonies
at Judson Auditorium, the Class of '46 attended
the convocation dance at Lassman Hall. Soon
afterward the freshmen selected their class officers
for the year. Maurice Cohen was elected President,
Bill Mezick, Vice-Presidentg Ruth Eckstein, Secretary,
Norman Wasserman, Treasurerg and Harold Harris,
The customary Tug-of-War started off the years
social activities. The frosh lost but only after a
bitterly contested fight. Marty Siegal, as chairman of
the Freshman Vigilante Committee climbed up Gara-
Prexy Rabinowitz being kidnapped by the
Prerident of Sophomore Clary
baldi's statue in Washington Square Park to kiss his
big toe. To retaliate, the Class of '46 kidnapped Vic
Fuchs, president of the Sophomore Class, and im-
prisoned him in an uptown hotel.
As a result of war conditions, the annual Frosh-
Soph Smoker and Hen Party was run as a combined
social for the first time in the history of Smoker-
Hen parties. Chairman Normie Weissberg and Anne
Quinlan were responsible for this unusual and very
Early in December, a dance was run in Lassman
Hall in which Commerce cuties and Square lovelies
competed against each other for the title of Miss
Victory. Lucille Dreyfuss, a member of the freshman
class of Commerce was chosen winner in the final
The members of the Class of '46 opened their
second year on a campus with many of the men in
the armed forces, since all of the enlisted reserves
were called to active duty early in the Spring of 1943.
However, the remaining students more than com-
pensated for their loss by keeping up the record es-
tablished in the freshman year. Shortly after the
term began, the sophs were called upon to elect their
class officers for the new year. In a very 'closely fought
election, they chose Stanley Rabinowitz as their presi-
dent, Lucile Olin as vice-president, and Ruth Eck-
stein as secretary. Other officers included Marilyn
Kroll, treasurer, Mildred Brombetg, historian, and
Selma Klein, recording secretary. When President
Stan Rabinowitz left Commerce to enlist in the army,
Lucille Olin assumed the position of president of

Frosh-Soph week. the traditional interclass con-
test, found the sophs on the other side of the fence
as they looked down on the lowly frosh.
Pei usual, the Sophomore Class President Stanley
Rabinowitz was captured and detrousered before the
Victory Ball at Lassman Hall, but to prove his good
sportsmanship, he appeared without his trousers.
Chairman of the Sophomore Committee for this
hilarious week was Wilrren Davis.
ln the social sphere the sophs once again displayed
their unusual ability. The first on the roster of the
class events was the joint Frosh-Soph Smoker and
Hen party which was run under the chairmanship of
freshman Gil Michaels assisted by Warreri Davis.
Faculty guests at this affair were Assistant Deans
Reutiman, and Schiffer, and Doctors Holbert, and
Backman. Harry Roberts band supplied the music
while couples danced in the spacious ballroom of the
Park Central Hotel.
Prominent positions in all the student war activi-
ties as well as in all School functions were held by
sophomores. ln Commerces successful War Efforts
Drives, members of '46 played leading roles. Wlieii
the Army Specialized Training Program took over
the top floors of the School of Commerce, a Com-
merce Servicemens Canteen was organized under the
chairmanship of Ruth Bitter. Mimi Trop, Harry
Gottlieb and Gladys Rappaport did their share of
war effort work by selling stamps and bonds at the
booth. Al Abbe, Sy Prutinsky, Ed Corrigan, Ann
Quinlan and Elaine Rich were active on the Com-
merce Bulletin. Jinx Grant contributed her services

HE Class of '47 has chosen a hectic time to em-
bark upon its college career. It has started with
an admirable spirit and with the class members
proving to upper-classmen that they have the ability
to carry on school activities efficiently in spite of the
handicaps of war. This Class of '47 really promises
to be one of the most outstanding classes in the
history of Commerce.

The Seniors appointed by the Student Council to
guide the Freshmen through this trying year, were
jerry Gale and Dotty Meltzer, who had no easy job
breaking in these neophytes. Once the frosh were
united, Gil Dorfman was elected president of his
class and performed the functions of his office with
efficiency. At the beginning of the second semester,
he received his orders and reported to Alfred Uni-
versity under the Army Specialized Training Program.
At this point Murray Kors, vice-president, took the
class reins and continued in admirable fashion.
With more than the usual amount of political fervor
and ballyhooing, the Class of ,47 went to the polls
and, with a feeling of confidence in their nominees,
elected their fellow students to office. Charles Soff
replaced Murray Kors as vice-president, Jeanette Kol-
lomar was class secretary, and Gil Michaels and Sherry
Levy were elected class treasurer and historian, re-
spectively. After a few well-attended class meetings
the frosh group decided to break tradition by not
having the annual Frosh-Soph Tug-of-War. They did,
however, kidnap Soph President Stan Rabinowitz,
and in turn, Frosh Prexy Gil Dorfman, was seized
by the Sophs. All was forgiven at the social in Lass-
man Hall which climaxed Frosh-Soph Week, when
Dorfman entered minus his trousers. Co-eds shied
away when Gil asked them to dance, for he wore
only his long flannel underwear. Robert Goodstein
was chairman of the Freshman Vigilante Committee.
The Frosh class members were full of ideas, and
they proceeded to form a "dance club". The purpose
of the organization was to aid Freshmen who did not
know the fine art of dancing. The Dance Club was
headed by Fran Millett and jo Pinto.

The Publicity Committee, guided by Marion Gross-
man, was largely responsible for the excellent re-
sponse to the successful activities of the Class.
The most outstanding affair of the year was the
Frosh-Soph Hen Party and Smoker, held at the Park
Central Hotel on February 25. At the affair, the
Freshman showed their true spirit and entered in
war activities by the large purchases of stamps and
bonds. Many upperclassmen who were present paid
tribute to the Class by saying, "lt was the best affair
we have ever attended while at Commerce."
The Freshman co-eds did not shirk their duties to
the Wtir Efforts activities. Many of them could be
seen scurrying about the lobby selling War Stamps
and Bonds, or Red Cross subscriptions. Plans for a
fashion show were formulated to co-operate with the
nation-wide Wait Bond Drive. Supervision of the
fashion show was given to two wide-awake Frosh,
Elinor Stern and Natalie Gettinger. The Class held
a Leap Year Dance on March 9 in Lassman Hall im-
mediately following the Commerce versus Fduaction
basketball game. Refreshments were served.
The class members did not neglect any activity,
but went all-out for sports and in almost every athletic
competition, the Freshman Class emerged undefeated.
The Class of '47 boasted an excellent newspaper
which they called the 'lFrosh News". Howard Fogel,
who was an active staff member of the Commerce
Bulletin, edited the "News" throughout the year and
did a grand job. The publication contained news
and gossip, and kept the members of the class up to
date on their various functions.
Despite the fact that the Freshmen Class entered
the School of Commerce during the national emer-
gency, it has forged ahead to set a wonderful ex-
ample for the rest of the undergraduate student body
and for the students who will attend the School in

HAT fine school spirit and enthusiasm which
has distinguished the Class of '45 since its
entrance into the School of Commerce, Ac-
counts, and Finance were very much in evidence this
past year. Active in both class and all evening activi-
ties, the class reconvened in September with a spirit
of co-operation and was eager to do its part in

promoting extra-curricular activities. This desire for
co-operation was one of the major aims of the Upper
Junior Class. lt was responsible for the planning and
carrying out of the successful undertakings which
were held by the combined junior classes.
First person to extend a bid for the combined
operations of evening classes was Nicholas Wcmjchow-
ski, class president and representative to the Student
Council, It was at his suggestion that members of
the Student Council considered the planning of
"bigger and better" activities by combining social
functions. The first class affair of the year was an
informal "get-together" dance held in Lassman Hall.
The dance was very well attended and, again, the
Class of '45 showed their school spirit.
The Upper juniors were the first to initiate the
idea of competitive bowling tournaments in the
evening division. This idea was enthusiastically
greeted by members of the Student Council, and
under the watchfulpeye of jack Radin, athletic chair-
man, was soon put into effect. The Class of '45 has
proven itself very capable of leadership and is look-
ing forward to the hne active year its Senior one
will be. Officers were: Nicholas Wfojchowski, presi-
dentg Howard Rothheld, vice-president: jack Radin,
secretaryg and Thomas Romano, treasurer.

rather difficult to form an active class this year. How-

the class to maintain its past record of activity in the
The success of class affairs and functions was
largely due to Eugene Raul, president, who was also
a member of the Student Council.
In conjunction with the War Effort, Andrew P.
Andrew, treasurer of the class, was the chairman of
the evening division of the War Effort Committee.
lt was this organization which sponsored a very suc-
cessful blood donor drive, held in co-operation with
the Red Cross, and staffed a war bond and stamp
booth all during the academic year.
The first social of the semester was held at the
home of one of the class officers. This successful
affair was responsible in no small measure for the
enthusiasm later displayed by class members and
The lower junior class proved that its members
were activity minded when they challenged other
evening classes in athletics.
These are but a few of the many successful under-
takings of the class during this, the third year of
the war. The class of '46 may look back with a feel-
ing of pride in their achievements. With the same
fine co-operation of both officers and classmates, next
year the class of '46 intends to surpass its already fine

S was the difficulty with all the evening classes
at the School of Commerce, Accounts, and
Finance during this the third year of war, the
Class of '47 had to cope with seemingly unsurmount-
able obstacles in organizing an active class. That the
Upper Sophomores succeeded in this difficult under-
taking is obvious by what the group accomplished.
Early in October plans were set and many social and
athletic affairs were scheduled.

Meetings were held and attended by a large num-
ber of the class members. The President of the Class
of V47, Nathan Kleppel, unanimously elected secretary
of the Evening Council, was largely responsible for
the excellent record established by the class during
this past year. As the school year got officially under
Way, the social committee, under the leadership of
jack Gottlieb began to function. The Sophomore Class
held several very successful dances in Lassman Hall.
In athletics, bowling served as the major sport
throughout the winter season, but as the spring
semester got under way, swimming and basketball
were included in the list of activities. Under the
Athletic Committee, many parties were planned and
All the officers of the upper sophomore class are
actively engaged in other extra-curricular activities.
Edyse Dworkin was vice-president, Selma Baer, sec-
retary, jack Gottlieb, treasurer, and Harold Schneider,
class historian. Wfith the ending of the 1945-1944
school year, the upper sophomore class was convinced
of the superiority of its members. They determined
to return to School next fall and become the best
junior class in history.
P1'e,ri:le1zt of Clan' of 48
MID the confusion and rumble of war drums,
E making vivid the existence of a state of war, the
Class of '48 began its sophomore year with its
members eager to prove, as they did last year, that
they were destined to be leaders. Under the able
guidance of their president, Robert Luisardi, and
their treasurer, Ruth Birstein, who were also repre-
sentatives on the Evening Student Council, the Class
of '48 again demonstrated that it could help make
the Evening Student Council activities successful.
Many Class members participated in the administra-
tion of School and Class affairs.
Members of the Class attended the All-Commerce
Hop held on December ll at the Biltmore Hotel,
which was sponsored by both the Day and Evening
Councils of the School of Commerce. The first class
affair was a dance held in Lassman Hall. At the
dance, games were played and novelty contests were
held, all in an endeavor to better acquaint the mem-
bers of the class with each other. That the social
season was well on its way to becoming a success
was attested by the fact that so many enthusiastic
sophomore students attended the dance.
The athletic side of college life was not over-
looked by the Class of '48. The bowling team par-
ticipated in many matches with other evening class
groups. Although not winning all of their games,
the team managed to win enough games to call the
season a successful one. The ofhcers of the Class of
'48 were: Robert Luisardi, president, Victor Books,
vice-presidentg Lotte Laemmle, secretary, and Ruth

makes it one of the outstanding classes in the School
of Commerce, Accounts, and Finance.
Entering the University at a time when the world
was in a turmoil, the men and women of the Class of
'49 continued with their plans to further their educa-
tion. Although the armed forces took many men who
would ordinarily have entered with the class of l49,
their registration was one of the largest in history.

Proceeding with natural dignity, the evening Fresh-
man Class immediately began to organize as a body
and take an active part in student activities.
The Class of '49 was recognized as a group at the
Freshmen Orientation Exercises soon after their en-
rollment. Dean Madden, Associate Dean Collins, As-
sistant Deans Kilduff, Reutiman and Schiffer, as well
as Professor jenkins and other faculty members, wel-
comed the new students and told them of their re-
sponsibilities. Representatives from honorary societies
and student leaders stressed the work of tlIeir or-
ganization and extended their welcomes to the in-
Eugene Raul, Freshman advisor, supervised the
class elections. There was little opposition for any of
the available offices and the following students were
elected: Charles O'Leary, presidentg Frederick SclIiner,
vice-president, Doris Weiner, secretary, Stanley
Markowitz, class historiang and William Gomary,
One of the most successful affairs held by the Class
of '49 was the Carnival and Dance in December.
Doris Weiner was in charge of the affair and the
students of the Freshmen Class donated all the money
realized from the social to the National War Fund.
The Freshmen proved their athletic ability when
they challenged the junior Class to a bowling tour-
nament. The resulting score was a tie.

OR the hrst time in the history of Basketball at
New York U., an all Freshman squad represented
the varsity. All of last year's team, which won
seventeen and lost six including the two games played
in the N.C.A.A. tournament, either graduated or
lecame members of the armed forces.
The entire starting five of Jerry Fleishman, A1
Grenert, Ray Lumpp, Sam Mele and John Regan
left for the service. Also answering the call to the
colors were johnny Simmons, Bob Maher, Herb
Weissman and Stan Danto. The graduates were
Charlie Heiser and Irv Rifkin.
Coach Howard G. Cann, starting his twenty-first
season as basketball coach, was faced with the hercu-
lean task of building a Violet team, with no return-

ing veterans, except for one member of the jayvee
squad. Francis Mangiapane, who had very little
playing experience. The team was made up of in-
coming Freshmen, just out of high school, and aver-
aging 17 years of age.
It was evident, as the season got under way, that
the Hall of Famers would be no match against the
strongly fortified Navy teams which New York U.
was destined to meet in their seventeen game sched-
ule. As Coach Cann remarked, "We'll do all right
against teams with civilian personnel like our own,
but against those clubs with experienced Navy trainees
participating, we're licked."
New York U. had several Army trainees who played

The starting five was built around Sid Tanenbaum,
a six-footer from Thomas Jefferson High School.
Tanenbaum held down the guard slot and soon
became the outstanding member of the squad. At the
other guard spot was John Derderian, from John
Adams High School, who was a hne shot and good
The forward positions were occupied by Howie
Sarath, who played at George Washington High
School, and Marty Goldstein, who joined the team in
mid-year, and who also went to George Washington
High School. Sarath was outstanding for his spirited
play, while Goldstein was impressive as a fine play-
maker. At center was six-foot-four Herb Walsh, who
attended New Dorp High School.
The rest of the squad consisted of Francis Mangia-
pane, who held down a forward position until Gold-
stein joined the squadg three Mount Vernon boys:
Ralph Branca, Frank Casucci, and Dick Wyman, Eu-
gene O'Brien of Ozone Park, Eddie Yost, Arnie Mill-
man, Ralph Kandelg Bill Crowleyg Jack Williky,
jack Gordon and Herb Kaplan. Millman departed for
the Army during the second semester while Kandel
and Crowley were dropped from the squad. Williky,
Gordon, and Kaplan joined the team in mid-year.
Up to and including the Oklahoma game, the team
had a fair season, considering its inexperience, win-
ning eight while dropping the same number. Of the
sixteen games played, four were lost by a margin of
only three or four points. Such type of defeat is an
indication of the fact that experience might have
made the difference between winning or losing.
Prospects of a good season in 1944-45 are very
bright. Several members of the squad will probably
return due to physical disabilities which defer them
from military or naval service, and others because of
age. Tanenbaum, Sarath, and Wyman are 4-F, while
Goldstein and Walsh were honorably discharged from
service. Mangiapane has a bad knee and expects defer-
ment, while Gordon is only seventeen years old. This
squad, which will have gained considerable experi-
ence, will be augmented by several promising high

The season opener took place December -1 at the
University Heights Gymnasium with the Violets fac-
ing the strong Army team from Fort Hancock. The
Cannmen won easily 55-40, with Tanenbaum lead-
ing the scoring parade with seventeen points. Fifteen
of these were made during the first half. Derderian
had eleven markers, and O'Brien, nine. New York
had command of the game all evening, having its
lead threatened only once during a shaky lirst half.

opposition. The Violets belabored the Blue and Gold
to the tune of 67-50. Again, Tanenbaum was the
leading scorer. The former Thomas jefferson High
School star netted sixteen points. Casucci, and Branca,
each with nine points were runners up. The Violets
lead 35-17 at half time.
New York University made their 1943-44 debut
in Madison Square Garden against the Terriers of
St. Francis College. The Violet clad basketeers were
victims of stage-fright early in the first half, and their
Brooklyn opponents jumped out to an 8-3 advantage.
However, the Cannmen soon got rid of their jitters,
and with five minutes remaining to play, they really
turned on the heat, pouring in shot after shot in a
brilliant exhibition of clever ball handling and smooth
defensive work. No fewer than seven field goals, and
two fouls for sixteen points were scored in the space
of only three minutes. New York University's half-
time advantage was a comfortable 50-10 score.
ln the second half. the Hall of Famers kept moving
with Millman and Tanenbaum leading in point pro-
duction. With the score 45-41, the Terriers started
a brief rally, rallying six consecutive points but New
York U. drove back keeping a safe margin. The high
scorers were Tanenbaum and Millman with eight
tallies each and Derderian and Mangiapane each
with seven markers.
Immediately, after the St. Francis game, New York
University was heralded as one of the outstanding
quintets in the country, The Dunkle scoring system,
which rates the nations teams, called the Violets the
outstanding live in the East, and third best in the
country. The New Yorkers continued to keep alive
this high rating, when on December 28 they trounced
the University of Pittsburgh, 54-40.
For a while, the Cannmen had a scare. trailing by
eleven points early in the opening period. Pittsburghs
lead was due to their close style of defensive play
which New York U. found hard to solve. Once they
did. the Panthers lost their big lead as the Cannmen
came from behind to tie the score at twenty-six all.
ln the second half. the Hall of Famers piled it on
drawing away from a tired Pitt team. Mangiapane
was the outstanding man in this game because of his
brilliant defensive play, although Tanenbaum was
high scorer with sixteen points. Millman had ten.
and Mangiapane. nine. This "win" marked New York
Ufs fourth straight. and they became the only un-
beaten live in the city as St. johns lost to Kentucky.
The Cannmens spotless record was marred on
New Years Day. when the Navy fortified Red
Raiders of Colgate trimmed them, 48-fll. New York
U. started oi? to an 8-O lead after five minutes of
play. but once the boys from Hamilton got started
they scored at will. New York U. held a l9-l7 half-
time margin but that was quickly erased shortly after
the second-half opened. Colgate poured in ten straight
points and it was impossible to stop them. Branca
was high man for New York in this game with fifteen
Penn State gave New York U. its second straight
set-back as they won a thriller 57-36. The Nittany
Lions used a tricky sliding zone which gave the

point Sarath was fouled on a shot and drew two free

The New Yorkers had trailed all evening, and were
behind 44-57 in the closing minutes when Coach
Cann inserted the hve-foot-nine freshman from St.
Agnes Academy, Mickey O,Brien. He put in two
straight set shots from mid-court, and this followed
by Wymi1n's foul and Mangiapanes lay-up tied the
score. The Nutmegs went ahead on a foul, and with
the clock showing fifty-six seconds, O'Brien hit again,
and the Violets salvaged what appeared to be a lost
ball game. Sarath was high man for New York U.
with fourteen points.
Columbias Nlidshipmen School provided the next
opposition, as the Hall of Famers returned to the
Heights' Gym. The Midshipmen were loaded with
such outstanding stars as ex-Notre Damers' Bob
Faught, john Curran, and Orlando Bonnicelli. The
Violets played probably their finest game of the
season, but lost in the closing minutes of play, through
failure to freeze the ball, 46-45. lt marked the second
time in three years that New York had lost on the
Heights campus. The Violets led 45-41, at half-time,
with the games lead changing hands nine times.
Tanenbaum was high with seventeen tallies.
Boasting a live and three record, the Palisaders en-
trained to Philadelphias Convention Hall to meet the
Owls of Temple University. Here, once again, New
York U. had quite a scare, but managed to win 45-45.
The Cannmen had a 29-l6 half-time lead, and in-
creased it to a 37-21 margin shortly after the second
half opened. However, Temples diminutive Abe ln-
german started to hit with brilliant set shooting and
the Owls roared back with twelve straight points to

year, was the Violet's high man with seventeen points.
Derderian and Sarath each had nine. New York U.
led 28-21, at the mid-way mark.
A brilliant last minute rally by New York U. almost
salvaged what appeared to be a lost ball game from
the University of Rochester. However, a set shot
from mid-court with eight seconds to play by Bob
Mulvihill, a former Fordham star, gave the Yellow
Jackets a 44-42 win, which caused the New Yorkers
to sustain their fourth loss. The Violets were trailing
by ten points with five minutes remaining when suc-
cessive goals by Tanenbaum, Gordon and Tanenbaum
again, followed by five more points tied the score with
fifty-one seconds remaining.
The Irish of Notre Dame gave the Cannmen their
second straight defeat and fifth loss of the season,
topping them 59-53, in the annual intersectional
struggle between the two schools. Led by Leo Klier,
a brilliant one-handed shot, the South Benders held
command of the game the entire evening leading
31-27 at the half-way mark. By winning this en-
counter, Notre Dame was granted the first leg on
the George Keogan Memorial Trophy given to the
winner of the game in honor of the former Irish
coach who died last year. Klier's play earned him
the Catholic Youth Organization Trophy as the
game's outstanding player, although Tanenbaum's
twenty-one points was one more than the Notre Dame
player scored. Goldstein with fifteen, including nine
fouls, was the New Yorkers' second high man.
The Violets met Colgate for the second time this
season. This time the game was played at Buffalo's
Memorial Auditorium. The Red Raiders won again
and gave New York U. their third straight beating.
The score was 53-49. The Cannmen made another
last minute spurt, scoring ten consecutive points to
come within two points of tying the score but the
Hamiltonians drew out in front again with less than
a minute to go.
The Palisaders had the misfortune of running into

basketball player from Northwestern University, who

Hard luck hit the Hall of Famers just before the
annual inter-city clash with St. johns when Tanen-

the grippe. Playing without their star hampered the
the count and poured in ten straight points during the

Beginning of the outdoor mack renron.
FTER walking oil' with everything but the
starter's gun during the season, the New York
U. track team stepped outdoors for the lirst
time last spring and promptly annexed the team title
in the Penn Relays. The Violets then proceeded to
garner the only other two major championships of
the spring season-the Metropolitan Inter-collegiates
Coach Emil Von Elling
and the I.C. 4A, to wind up the greatest year in the
annals of the sport at New York University.
But that was all. The ravages of war began to work
on Emil Von Elling's spiked shoe brigade. The
Violet runners arenit invincible anymore. As this is
written there remains only one more meet, the annual
Knights of Columbus affair, in which N. Y. U. has
yet to emerge victorious in a team score.
However, we can bask in the glory of last year's
Penn Relays. The Palisaders captured major laurels.
In the mile relay, which produced one of the most
exciting finishes of the meet, the N. Y. U. entry
outlasted the formidable Cand overwhelming favor-
iteb Michigan quartet. The Violet runners were Art
Herrforth, Walter Welsch, Charley Grohsberger, and
Frank Cotter. The lion's share of the credit for the
triumph goes to Cotter. He fought off a determined
bid by Bob Ufer, Big Ten quarter mile champion, to
win by a scant two yards. The clocking was 5I2O.6.
Moving on to the Metropolitan Inter-collegiates,
the experts finally got weary of calling them wrong
and installed the Violets as favorites .Well, there
was no contest. N. Y. U. piled up 108 points. This
astounding total not only set an all-time high for the
meet, but it came within 4M points of matching the
total of the other six contestants combined.
That was not all! The victors won every track
title but the half-mile, and took four of the seven
field events. All told, Von Elling's operatives regis-
tered 11 victories and finished first and second, seven
times. Critics are convinced that there never will be
another college track team to equal the 1943 New
York U. outfit.
In the I.C.-4-A, Von Elling reversed his strategy.
Instead of shooting for all the individual titles, the
Violets were content to win only two championships
--the 220-yard low hurdles, taken by Warren Halli-
burton, and the mile relay. Copping the diadem with
37 markers and only two firsts was conclusive evi-
dence as to the balance of the Hall of Fame crew,
The Navy was runner-up with 21 tallies. .
That was the climax of the year for one of the
most successful track teams in the history of the
sport, college or otherwise. Its members will go down
in the history of New York U. sports. Veteran coach
Emil Von Elling, merely proved once again that he
was a master strategist in track warfare.
This seasons team certainly won't measure up to
last year's aggregation, but it will be a good outfit.
Although the draft has cut the squad unmercifully
N. Y. U. can be depended upon to finish close to the
top in the outdoor championships.
The most noteworthy effort on the Part of a Hall
of Fame trackster this year was the O:06.1 recorded
by Ed Conwell for the 60-yard dash. His time
equalled the world's record, set by Ben Johnson and
tied by Perrin Walker, Herbert Thompson and Bar-
Still, the Violets would have looked a lot better
had the Callander twins, Maurice and Stanton, and
Norman Wasser been eligible. The twins were tested
performers and would have added a number of points
to the scores. Wasser, a former schoolboy shotput
champ, defeated Bernie Mayer, last year's top heave
in the beginning of the campaign.
Next to Conwell, the Violet who turned in the best
job was Rudy Simms, Frosh miler. The former
P.S.A.L. mile king from DeWitt Clinton, raced against
such big names as Gil Dodds and Bill Hulse all
winter, and although he didn't break the tape in
hrst place, he certainly did not discredit himself at all.
This was Simms' first season of competition under
the big top, whereas the others were seasoned board-

the Morningside Heights outdoor boards, but from
there on in the Von Ellingmen had trouble keeping
high in the race for team honors. They lost their

EW York University opened the cross country
season with only one veteran, Willter "Bar-

who excelled on the indoor board track. The rest of
the squad was predominately Freshman. Of all the
yearlings, Rudy Simms, outstanding high school miler,
proved to be the most promising.
The opening of a disappointing season came on
October 2 at Van Courtland Park. The opposition
was provided by "Navy Packed" Columbia. The Light

victory. Welscli was the first Violet to pass the five

Coach Bill Met
N Thursday, March 9, about 80 baseball candi-
dates turned out at Ohio Field for the first
practice session of the 1
944 Violet nine. In a
year of so many uncertainties, Coach William V.
"Bill" McCarthy, starting his
twenty-third year as
coach of the New York U. baseball team, has quite
a task confronting him.
There are no returning leti
:ermen and only one
player has had any previous varsity nine experience.
He is Bob Spalholz, an engineering student who saw
brief action at third base and
year. One of the most promis
Olsen, a Commerce freshman,
behind the plate last
ing rookies is George
who was catcher for
the Andrew Jackson High School team before coming
to New York U. Quite a few of the aspirants have
had previous high school experience which is very
encouraging to Coach McCarthy. Several of New
York U.'s basketeers are also going out for baseball.
They are Ed Yost, who after his performances with
john Adams High School was offered a contract by
the New York Yankees, Ralph Brancag Frank Ca-
succig Marty Goldstein, Mickey O'Brien and Dick
This year's team has a big job to perform if it
is to duplicate the record of its predecessor. Last
season the Hall of Famers compiled a record of 14
wins and only one loss. Much credit for this success
can be given to Bill McCarthy. Since 1922, when
Coach McCarthy undertook the leadership of New
York U.'s baseball team, the Violets have made an
enviable record of 258 wins, 137 losses, and 5 ties.
The Violet nine's all time record since 1873 is 381
wins, 341 losses and 9 ties.
Paul Kritchell's successor was a good athlete in his
college days. At Holy Cross he starred in football,
track, and baseball, but left that institution in 1917
to enlist in the U. S. Army. After the war, he con-
tinued his studies at Lehigh University, where he

added basketball to his athletic pursuits. His con-
tributions to the major league have been George
"Kiddo" Davis, who batted .309 in five seasons with
the Phillies and Giants, and Ken Strong, who although
better known as a New York Giant football star,
played baseball for a short time with the Detroit
Tigers. More recently, Al Campanis, a 1940 School
of Education graduate, played for the Montreal Roy-
als and the Brooklyn Dodgers. Campanis is now serv-
ing in the Navy.
Led by Co-captains Bill Conover and Lou Petra, the
1945 Hall of Famers opened the season on April 7
against City College. Dick Antonotf pitched the Pal-
isaders to a 5-2 win over their inter-city rivals to
begin an eight game winning streak which was not
broken until May 5, when Sandy Silverstein lost a
3-l heartbreaker to Fordham. The Violets' victims
during this time were St. johns, Fort Hancock,
Hofstra, Fordham, Brooklyn, Manhattan and C. C.
N. Y. The New Yorkers then bounced back with
wins over Manhattan, Columbia, St. johns, Hofstra,
Army, and Brooklyn College.
Leading hitter last year was Sam Mele. This former
basketball and baseball star led the Metropolitan Col-
legiate Baseball Conference hitters in almost every
department except batting, where he finished third
with a .592 average. He hit three home runs, and
sent 22 runners across home plate with his slugging.
Most versatile player was Al Grenert, who in addi-
tion to batting 545, pitched the Violets to five
victories. The Violet nine was awarded the Edward
G. Barrow trophy, which is given annually to the
team finishing with the highest percentage in the
Metropolitan Collegiate Baseball Conference. The
Violets' record was l2 wins and 1 loss.

Hunter, St. Elizabeth, and Panzer in that order.
Because of a late start the girls faced only two

FTER suffering live consecutive losses, the New
York U. basketball quintet broke into the win-
ners circle with an upset victory over a strong
Oklahoma five at Madison Square Garden on March l.
The Sooners entered the fray as a decided favorite to
defeat the Violets, but from the very start it was evi-
dent that the Hall of Famers would outscore the high
flying Oklahomans. Led by Sid Tanenbaum, who
garnered 19 points during the fray, the Cannmen
overcame a ll-25 halftinie deficit to go on to win by
a score of 55--17.
The Violets ended the season on a winning note
by taking the measure of C.C.N.Y., S6-46, in a hotly
contested traditional game. Tanenbaum paced the
scorers by pouring I7 points through the hoops.
Sid Trubowitz, highly touted City forward, was high
for his team with 15 markers. New York U. held a
29-25 edge at the half, and after turning back sev-
eral C.C.N.Y, rallies went on to win by a ten point
margin. John Derderian and Frank Mangiapane
played an outstanding game for the victors.
Coach Cann rated the season as a success despite
the Violets' poor record of nine wins and eight losses.
The New York U. aggregation played the hardest
schedule of any team in the metropolitan area, and
never failed to make each game a closely contested
affair. The outstanding hoopster on the squad was
Sid Tanenbaum who led tl1e Violets both on the
offense and the defense. Tanenbaum scored 2lO points
during the course of the seasonfthe second highest
total ever rung up by any New York U. hoopster.

The Social Committee made possible the very suc-
cessful Day Organization Christmas Party in Lassman
Hall. Professor joseph Bonneville assumed the role
of Santa Claus and presented the leading students of
the School with Christmas presents. After awarding
the gifts there was a dance and refreshments. This

HE task of co-ordinating the enthusiastic efforts
of its individual members was set before the
president of the Evening Council, Lothar Kles-
tadt. The l45-'44 Council will be remembered for its
constant and constructive efforts to improve the po-
sition of evening students at the School of Commerce.
Its interests varied from war activities and political
meetings to sports and social affairs. Particular stress
was laid by members of the Council on an active War
Efforts program. Realizing the tremendous amount of
work involved in the execution of an intensive pro-
gram, the council formed two separate committees.
Under the chairmanship of Muriel Rosenhain, the sale
of War Stamps and Bonds soared to a new high. The
sales booth in the Commerce Lobby was manned by
an evening student volunteer every night in the week.
The other division responsible for co-operation with
the governmental drives and requests, headed by An-
drew P. Andrew, sold stamps and bonds and held
several drives and rallies during the year. Social ac-
tivities were sponsored by the Student Council with
the All-Evening Commerce Dance held at the Hotel
Delmonico in April. The dance met with wide ap-
proval by the student body.
On December 22, the Evening Council sponsored
its annual Christmas Party in Lassman Hall. This af-
fair, which has become a Commerce tradition, proved
a grand success. jack Gottlieb and Harold Schneider
wrote the amusing presentation and the former was
the star of the show. The presentation of gifts to
Commerce's "XXfho's XXfho" received a round of
laughs. Members of the Council satired many of the
happenings at Commerce in a series of one act plays.
The whole show was appreciated by the students
and by the deans and faculty members. Those present

HIE Wzlll Street Division of the School of
Commerce, Accounts, and Finance was organ-
ized in l9 lfl. The branch was formed in response
to the demand of the employees of Wtill Street for
instruction in Banking and Finance. Only three
courses were offered at that time as the outstanding
subjects at the School of Commerce, Accounts. and
Finance. Growing in the number of students neces-
sitated the removal of the Division from its original
quarters at 20 Broad Street to its present location at
90 Trinity Place. The change occurred in l920, and
it was in that year that the XVall Street Student Or-
ganization was founded.
The Graduate School of Business Administration
which was organized in l92O. was formed in a sep-
arate school for graduates holding academic degrees
from recognized colleges or universities. At this
School, graduates may take courses of study leading
to the degrees of Master of Business Administration,
Doctor of Commercial Science. and Ph.D. Dean Row-
land Collins succeeded Dean A. Wellingtiuii Taylor
as Dean of the School in September, 1944.
Students can take practically all the courses neces-
sary for their Bachelor of Science degrees in the
undergraduate division. Instructors include regular
faculty members of the School of Commerce as well
as lecturers from the business fields.

The Institute of International Finance was founded
originally in the interest of American foreign invest-
ments, but has now broadened its scope. It publishes
bulletins of timely interest dealing with domestic and
international problems, statistical bulletins containing
important data relating to the various foreign coun-
tries and special bulletins analyzing the credit posi-
tion of foreign countries. The Director of the Institute
is Dean John T. Madden. Dr. Marcus A. Nadler is
Research Director. This was the background which
prompted the founding of the Wall Street Student
Organization in 1920.
The organization corresponds to the Student Coun-
cils at the School of Commerce. The organization has
been of ever increasing importance in promoting
good fellowship. The executive body of the Wall
Street Division aims to serve the School and to further
a closer and friendlier relationship among the students.
The officers of the organization have tried to fulfill
these tims during its twenty-two years of existence.
Students registered at the Wall Street Division for
more than six points in the undergraduate School
automatically become members of the Student Organ-
ization. The opportunity is thus offered to the stu-
dents to participate in all activities and affairs spon-
sored. The students are under no obligation because
of their membership.
The purposes of the Organization-friendliness and
co-operation among the students-are achieved
through smokers, bowling parties and dances. A
very successful smoker was held for all the men
students at the Division. Men in charge of the
affair were Carl Fredrickson, president of the Wall
Street Division, jack Gottlieb, Nick Wojchowski ,and
Nicholas Liberator. Students of the School of Com-
merce were invited to attend the smoker.
There has been some interest recently in the
affairs of the school displayed by the women's organi-
zation. Under the guidance of Harriet Griek and Ann
Nicholas, the women have sponsored hen parties, teas,
bowling and swimming parties, and dances. Women
students at the School have thus fostered a great deal
enthusiasm and school spirit. The Wall Street Student
Organization has as its faculty advisor Mr. Arnold
La Force of the School of Commerce. The Wall Street
Organization operates under the control of the Eve-
ning Student Council at the School of Commerce.
Through this representation, the Wall Street and
Commerce organizations are kept in close contact with
"Tony," the boot-black working on cl new clientele around the NYU "campnr" .

May Lou Baker, Prerieient, and Arrirtant Dean Reuti-
man, Adviror to the League of Women.
HE League of Women is an organization which
answers a vital need in the School of Commerce,
Accounts, and Finance. Composed of all women
in the School, who automatically become members
upon registration, the League fosters and encourages
the spirit of friendship among the women at the
School of Commerce and has acted as a cohesive force
this year, more than ever.
Under the very capable guidance of Assistant Dean
Gladys H. Reutiman, the League offers a plan of so-
cial, cultural and charitable activities. For each affair
two chairmen are chosen and are assisted by a com-
mittee of volunteers.
The first activity each semester is a Big Sister Tea.
Under the direction of Co-chairmen Ferne Bramhall
and Frances Dandy, a committee of upper class co-eds
functioned as ubig sisters" to the incoming freshmen
girls. Each frosh girl is assigned a big sister to whom
she may go for advice until she orientates herself.
One of the results of these teas is the formation of
many sincere comradeships which endure not only
during school life but far beyond college days.
Many enjoyable afternoons were spent by the girls
and their professors at the faculty teas, sponsored by
the League. These affairs permit the co-eds to further
their acquaintance with the faculty, far from the re-
straining formalities of the classroom. Chairmen of
the teas this year were Ina Rosenberg and Florence
A very successful Mother-Daughter Tea is held
each year. This affair was planned to give mothers
of co-eds an opportunity to meet members of the
faculty, other students at the School, and a general
view of the social life at the School of Commerce.
The affair was under the direction of Shirley Mentz
and Marjorie Dworetsky.
Another activity of the League of Women is the
Cake and Candy Sale, the proceeds of which go to
the Emily Foster award which is given annually to
the outstanding Junior girl. Chairmen for this past
year were Joyce Rottenberg and Eleanor Forin. Each
fall the League conducts a series of hygiene lectures,
given by Professor Josephine Rathbone. Other guests
were invited to appear before the girls to speak on
matters of importance.
An important event on the League of Women
calendar was an annual Christmas party, given for
children of the neighboring Judson Health Center.
Chairmen of this event were Marilyn Greenberg and
Jackie Feldman. The presentation of gifts to the
children, in addition to ice cream and candy, was
the highlight of the afternoon.
The League of ll5'01ne41 in rerrion.
The Leagues well-rounded program does not over-
look athletics. Each year a Frosh-Soph Week is held
during which time the girls compete in an intra-
mural sports program. Letters were awarded to the
teams for their participation in the various contests.
The League of Women has given much cooperation
to the War Effort Committee. Its .many members
have helped sell War Bonds and Stamps, and have
entertained soldiers at the School of Commerce Ser-
viceman's Canteen and other servicemenls centers
throughout the city. Anne Quinlan was in charge of
the Red Cross and Blood Donating Committees,
which held their drives in conjunction with the
National Red Cross Campaign.
During the second semester of each year, a dinner
party is held for the Day and Evening League of
Women so that both 'rou s ma work in reater co-
o eration. The dinner this ear was held Wednes-
da evenin March 29 under the su ervision of
Y 8- i
Norma Samuels and Margaret Eenberg.
The League of Women is an organization to which
all women students are members. Meetings are held
bi-monthly in the Women's Lounge and the execu-
tive committee meets separately several times during
the year to make plans for coming events.
Officers of the League this year were Mary Lou

for the first semesterg Dorothy Meltzer, senior dele-
gate for the second semesterg Madeline Kurzrock,

President of Evening League of Women
LL women students enrolled at the School of
Commerce, Accounts, and Finance of New
York University automatically become mem-
bers of the League of Women upon registration. The
Evening Division of the League was established
twenty-one years ago to encourage a friendly spirit
and sociability among the women students attending
evening session. At the Freshmen Orientation meeting
held in Lassman Hall in September, Ann Solomon set
forth the purposes and plans of the League and she
stressed the importance of its work during wartime.
The League of Women is the only organization at
the School whose membership is restricted to women.
The Freshmen Welcome Tea was held during the
latter part of October. All Freshmen women were in-
vited to attend this tea and become better acquainted
with the leading co-eds at the School of Commerce.
Dean Gladys H. Reutiman, faculty advisor to the
League, was the guest of the evening. Co-chairmen
of the affair were Audrey Winthrop and Florence
Nelson. The regular business meetings of the League
are held every other Wednesday evening during the
school year. At these meetings, plans are formulated
and an extensive program of activities decided upon.
The annual L.O.W. Christmas Tree Party was held
this year on the Saturday afternoon prior to Christ-
mas. Children of the Judson Health Center were in-
vited, and given gifts and refreshments. This party is
one of the outstanding events of the year and the
members of the League look forward to it as much
as the children.
One of the most enjoyable events of the year was
the Mother-Daughter Tea, held on Wednesday eve-
ning, january 5. Miss Reinhardt and her puppets,
and Sylvia Haimowitz, concert pianist, provided the
entertainment at the party.
The February Freshmen co-eds were officially wel-
comed at the League of Women's St. Patrick Day
Dance. Dean Reutiman, Dr. Hayward Holbert, fac-
ulty advisor to student activities, and Miss Hortense
Dillon, addressed the group. Professor Alfred Green-
field directed, and members of the Glee Club rendered
songs fitting to the occasion.
The joint Day-Night League of Women dinner
was held on March 29, in the Women's Lounge. This
was the only jointly sponsored affair by both divisions
of the League.
This years events were expertly handled under the
guidance of: Ann Solomon, President of the Evening
Division, Rochelle Greif, Treasurer, Naomi Schatz,
Vice-President, Audrey Winthrop, Recording Sec-
retaryg Shirley Richtman, Corresponding Secretaryg
and Ada Solomon, Historian.

ETA MU Pl
ETA MU PI, the honorary retailing fraternity, derives its names from the Greek
words, "ethos,H meaning ethics, "moosa," meaning scientificg and "pontapolio," meaning
retailing trade. Several outstanding alumni of the School of Retailing appeared before
Dean Norris A. Brisco and took an oath to uphold the ethics in the field of scientific
retailing. Thus, it was in 1922 that the Alpha chapter of Eta Mu Pi, honorary retailing
fraternity, was started. Dean Brisco has advised the fraternity since its inception, twenty-
one years ago.
The executive council, in 1939, suggested the formation of an undergraduate chapter
of the honorary fraternity. Consequently, Beta chapter of Eta Mu Pi was founded to
meet this need with Dr. O. Preston Robinson as faculty advisor. Election to this
honorary retailing fraternity is based upon scholarship and store service.

York Oratorio Society. In january 1945, the Com-
merce Glee Club was given School recognition and
those who were members before that time were con-
sidered as charter members and were given the of-
ficial Commerce Glee Club key in recognition. Other
members may receive keys by having a seventy-five
percent attendance record for two years.
At present, the Commerce Glee Club is one-half
of its former quota as most of the men are off to
war. Until their return, the women of the Commerce
Glee Club are carrying on with regular programs.
While the men were still at School, the Glee Club
sang at the Pan-European Conference held in Judson
Auditorium, gave a concert in collaboration with the
New York University Glee Club, for the Americanls
Volunteer Service, and, performed at many of the
Freshmen Orientation exercises.
This school year the Commerce Glee Club joined
forces with the A.S.T.P. Glee Club at New York
University. They gave a Christmas program in the
New York University Chapel. The entire group went
Christmas Carolling in several Servicemen Canteens.
Every spring the Glee Club holds its annual ban-
quet which is attended by many faculty members, in-
cluding Deans Reutiman and Schiffer.
The Glee Club Bulletin, containing interesting tid-
bits about the activities of the Club, is published
three times a year. The Bulletin has proved to be an
excellent medium for keeping in touch with Glee
Club members on leave in the Armed Services. Many
of the fellows are carrying on their Glee Club sing-
ing in their various branches of service.
The officers of the Club are Clare Petzko, Manager,
and Angela Lanze, Librarian.

FOURTH ESTATE CLUB. ln l922 a group of
Commerce students who were interested in journalism
and who realized that there was no organized club
for prospective journalists, formed the Fourth Estate
Club. The club's purposes were and still are today,
to further interest in all types of writing among the
Commerce student body, and to promote social ac-
tivities between the present active members of the
club and the alumni club members. Still another aim
is to assist in scientific studies of the principles of
journalism. During the first few years of the club's
existence only students who were majoring in either
journalism or advertising were admitted to the club.
However, as the club grew, interest in its activities
spread so widely among the students that the restric-
tions were withdrawn and the only remaining requi-
site for admission is an active interest in journalism.
It has always been the policy of the club to receive
as guest speakers men and women who are prom-
inent in the field of writing. In the past, the out-
standing personalities who have addressed the mem-
bers of the club have been Meyer Berger, feature
writer of the New York Times, who wrote the first
feature column in the Times called 'lAbout New
York", J. Donald Adams, one time editor of the
book review section of the New York Timesg and
Dr. Gregory Mason, Chairman of the Department of
journalism at the School of Commerce. In pre-war
days, the activities of the club were never complete
without at least one field trip during each college
year. These trips usually consisted of a guided tour
through one of the large New York newspaper plants.
Due to the prevailing war conditions, the field trip
was abandoned last year.
The Annual High School Press Contest is one of
the highlights of the club's activities. The editors of
high school newspapers are invited to submit copies
of three consecutive issues of their papers to the of-
ficers of the club who select the outstanding paper.
The chief adverse criticisms of the majority of pub-
lications submitted have been that the makeup was
faulty and their news stories were too choppy. Other
reasons why many of the papers lost credits was the
lack of pictures and the firm hand of the faculty on
the policies of the paper.
A "Best News Story" contest under the club's spon-
sorship is held annually. The editorial staffs of the
three downtown New York University publications,
the Commerce Bulletin, the Washington Square Bul-
letin, and the Education Sun, are the contestants. The
members of the club, who were chosen as preliminary
judges, consider each issue of these publications for
that year. After which outstanding news stories of the
year are selected. These stories are submitted to mem-
bers of the faculty of the Department of journalism,
who act as final judges and select the winners. The
author of the winning story has his name inscribed
on a plaque which is on display in the journalism
lounge in the South Building.
Professor Leon Whipple is the present faculty ad-
visor to the club, having succeeded Professor Mason
in this office. The officers are: Francine Stanger, pres-
ident, Jerome Evans, vice-president, Stan Acker,
treasurer, Shirley Mentz, recording secretary, and
Ruth Eckstein, corresponding secretary.

THE FOREIGN TRADE CLUB of New York
University was organized in 1929. It is the father of
all college Foreign Trade organizations in the coun-
try, having been the Hrst one established in the United
States. The club this year, despite war conditions, has
expanded in membership, its alumni association is
more active this year than ever before.
The purpose of this organization are to provide an
opportunity for its members to labor most effectively
for their mutual benefit in becoming properly edu-
cated and trained for foreign trade as a vocation,
and, secondly, to assist one another in seeking foreign
trade employment and advancement. The club also
assists its members in obtaining a better understand-
ing of foreign countries by supplementing classroom
instruction, providing a medium for the exchange of
ideas and giving the student contemporary informa-
tion concerning latest developments in international
trade and policies.
The Foreign Trade Club is a focal point for con-
tact between students, faculty, practical business men
and government officials. The activities of the club
include programs that feature prominent and influen-
tial travelers and business men, special field trips,
numerous social affairs, foreign atmosphere dinners,
round table discussions, and the Annual Foreign Trade
The Foreign Trade Club is open to students study-
ing at any school of New York University who are
interested in trade in general, the customs of foreign
countries, foreign diplomatic service, shipping, air
transportation, foreign policy, international law and
allied interests. It will prove of great value to all
those who wish to attain an understanding of the
conditions in a swiftly progressing world.
A gold key is awarded annually to the student who
has given outstanding service to the Club. An hon-
orary society which selects undergraduate students,
who have exceptional scholastic standing, has been
The officers of the club this year are: Leonard E.
Sturtz, president, Vera Grusha, treasurer, Lou A.

ard Friedman, executive director, Harold Stern, as-
sistant director, and Robert Gelb, executive secretary.
Professor Paul V. Horn is faculty advisor to the club.
The Foreign Trade Club conducted a very exten-
sive program this term. On February 26 there was a
College Conference Delegation which met in New
York City. Colleges throughout the country were
represented and topics of current interest were dis-
The Club held a rally on March 1. The purpose
was to raise the membership list and proved very
successful. Several speakers addressed the club at this
rally. On March ll the club's members held a For-
eign Atmosphere Dinner, at one of the better known
New York restaurants. Several socials have been held
in Lassman Hall during the year, with the Servicemen
stationed at the University being invited.

THE ACCOUNTING CLUB was organized in
1931 with the assistance of Professor Arthur H. Ros-
enkampff, Chairman of the Accounting Department.
Since then, the club has grown rapidly, and today it
is one of the largest and most active clubs in the
School of Commerce, Accounts, and Finance.
The aims of the club are:
1. To bring together and to unite more closely
2. To promote friendlier relationships between
students of Accounting and their professors.
5. To introduce these students to practicing and
4. To create a greater interest in academic and
At the first meeting of the group, Professor Rosen-
kamplf spoke on the flexibility of an Accounting
major's program, stressing the subjects which are
valuable and required. The professor also pointed out
the opportunities for women in the field of Account-
At a later meeting, Professor Schlauch demonstrated
the "Magic of Mathematics" as applied to the prac-
tice of Accounting. He pointed out the way in which
accounting can become a magical and exciting science.
At another meeting, Mr. Lawrence Zimmer of the
New York University Employment Bureau addressed
the group on "Opportunities For Accountants - Im-
mediate and Future." He pointed out the trends in
present day and future demands for accountants. He
advised members of the Club as to what type of posi-
tion they should accept and he also told why it is neces-
sary to have practical experience while matriculating.
Several dances were held during the year in Lass-
man Hall. The Christmas Party, held in conjunction
with two other groups, was a success and the mem-
bers of the Accounting Club were spurred on to hold
more socials. A tea for students of accounting and
faculty members of the Accounting Department was
held during the second semester. The purpose of the
tea was to offer the student a chance to meet his
instructor out of the classroom.
Professor Rosenkampff was chairman of the first
meeting held during the second semester. He dis-
cussed the integration of accounting courses with
others offered at the School. He also gave the pre-
requisites necessary for all students majoring in the
field of accounting.
The "History of Auditing" was discussed by Pro-
fessor Wider of the Accounting Department. He
started at the very earliest stage in its history and
described the stages of development up until the
present day. Professor Wider also discussed the var-
ious factors which affected the development of audit-
At the March 13th meeting there was a complete
review of the work covered in the accounting courses
given. This was a great aid to students studying for
examination. On March 27, Mr. Vincent Rubino, of
the Law Department spoke on the topic of "Law on
the Certified Public Accountants Examination."

THE RETAILING CLUB was established in
1936 by a small enterprising group of retailing stu-
dents who felt the need of a club which would pro-
vide a more comprehensive study of their professional
problems. These students believed that such an or-
ganization would supplement the theoretical instruc-
tion offered to them in the classroom. Although the
club has broadened its scope and increased its size
since its inception, it has successfully maintained its
three prime objectives.
1. To provide a meeting place of students who
have a common interest in retailing.
2. To inform the students of progress achieved
in their chosen vocation.
3. To acquaint them with leaders in the retailing
In order to fulfill the second and third purposes.
prominent men and women representing every phase
of retailing are invited to address members of the
club. At the conclusion of each lecture, the guest
speakers conduct an open forum, and answer ques-
tions asked by the audience. The speakers are care-
fully selected from a wide range of specialists to
provide a balanced program. Fields included are:
fashion, reporting, merchandising, management, con-
trol, and sales promotion.
The new regime of the Retailing Club was installed
in May, 1943 at a dinner held at the Faculty Club.
The guest speakers at the affair were Mrs. Beaumonte.
personnel director of B. Altman 8: Co., Dean Norris
Brisco of the School of Retailing of New York U.
and Mrs. Alice Dowd of the faculty.
The first meeting of the current academic year was
held in October, 1943. It was a "Get Acquainted" ses-
sion. All the members present related the experiences
they had encountered in the business world during the
summer session. This round-table discussion proved
to be interesting as well as informative. After the dis-
cussion committee chairmen were appointed, Ann
Roberts was assigned to arrange the program for the
semester, Jeanne Frankle was given charge of the
social affairs of the club, and Rae Kopp was named
Instead of the usual monthly meeting in December,
the Retailing Club members sponsored a Christmas
Party in collaboration with the Foreign Trade Club,
Triad and the Advertising Club. The March meet-
ing was highlighted by the appearance of Harry
Conover, founder of the famous Conover Modeling
Agency, who spoke to the club members about the
relationship of modeling to the retailing field.
The climax of the season came in May when the
Retailing Club secured Emily Wilkins as guest speak-
er for the final meeting. The young and charming
Miss Wilkins is a designer of children's clothes. Dur-
ing the past two years she has won phenominal suc-
cess. She first introduced her line as a designer, but
soon became an entrepreneur. She has had her line
displayed at such leading shops as Bonwit Teller's in
New York and Marshall Field's in Chicago.
The officers for the year 1943-1944 were: Norma
Samuels, president, Joyce Gumbiner, vice-president,
Francine Stanger, secretaryg and Eleanor Forin, treas-
urer. Miss Bernice G. Chambers is faculty advisor
to the club.

TRIAD LEAGUE. At the first meeting of the
Triad League in the 1943-1944 season, Professor
George B. Hotchkiss told new members how he and
a group of active marketing students founded the
Triad League in 1915, to bring to advertising majors
a closer practical understanding of marketing and its
problems, and to proht by the experience of guest
speakers invited to address the meetings.
The attractive onyx and gold triangular pin, which
Triad members may wear, symbolizes in its three
points the ideas of truth, art and science to which
the organization is dedicated.
At the first meeting, the annual "Meet Your Fac-
ulty" night, Professor George B. Hotchkiss' address
was followed by the reminiscing of Professors Dar-
rel B. Lucas, C. Hayes Sprague and Thomas B, Stan-
ley about the early days of Triad. Professor Hotchkiss
remarked that if the founders of the Triad League
were present, they would be amazed to see the num-
ber of co-eds in the organization. When the Triad
was founded it was unheard of for girls to be in the
League, much less major in advertising. Now, of the
six officers of the organization, four are co-eds.
After the speeches of Assistant Dean Gladys H.
Reutiman, Associate Professor Dale Houghton, Miss
Dorcas E. Campbell and Mr. Harold A. Conner, Pro-
fessor Hotchkiss showed a photograph taken of a
very early all-male Triad group in which many of
the Marketing professors were present. Sidney Weiss,
vice-president of the A. W. Lewin Company, an ad-
vertising agency, and former member of the Triad
League, spoke on "Opportunities in Advertising."
Complete with cider, cookies and prizes, Triad held
a huge Christmas party for the A.S.T.P. boys sta-
tioned at New York University with the co-operation
of Retailing and Foreign Trade Clubs.
Triad members are now working on a plan for
establishing an advertising agency in School to give
advertising majors a chance to gain experience in
the field. The advertising of the various school or-
ganizations would be carried on by this student-run
Officers of the Triad League were: Ruth Eligman,
president, Nick Wojchowski, vice-president, Elaine
Green and Ina Rosenberg, secretaries, Ann Gottlieb,
treasurerg and Al Mentor, publicity director. Assistant

THE COMMERCE VIGLET
HIS year's Violet isn't much different than any
of its predecessors. There are pictures, depart-
ments and features. There are clubs, sports and
activities. The only thing missing are those fellows
who should have their pictures in the volume as
graduating seniors but instead are scattered all over
the world in the fighting forces of the United States.
It is to these men and the ideals for which they are
fighting that this 1944 Commerce Violet is dedicated.
The editor of the Violet has taken great pains to
make this volume worthy of such a dedication. He
has gathered the best art work, photographs and
copy, and molded them into a 150 page edition that
captures all the beauty, action and memories too, that

the publication under conditions more difficult than
those faced by any other Violet editor in the past.
Former editors were appointed in April, twelve
months before the Violet was completed and ready
for distribution, Thus the editors were able to work
throughout the entire summer, make plans for the
book, work with the publisher, make up the dummy
and have everything ready by September.
However, this year, Editor Gale was appointed the
last week in November, after being honorably dis-
charged from the Army late in September. He began
actual production of the Violet in December. Devot-
ing all of his energy, time and efforts, he produced
the 1944 Violet in the amazing time of five months
- seven months less than any other editor in the
past! Under conditions more difncult than can be
imagined, the editor began making plans for the
yearbook in which hardships arose at every turn.

Photographs, including pictures of seniors and
extra-curricular activities, had to be taken in a shorter
period of time than ever before. The Violet owes its
thanks for this to Chidnolf Studio, who took almost
all of the senior pictures, and Murray Lee Fried,
photography editor of the Violet, who took the
extra-curricular photos and several senior pictures.
You can thumb through the 1944 Violet and see
yourself walking in the park, sitting in class, in the
halls of the School, at an athletic event, or at a School
affair. One need not be a senior to enjoy the year-
book fully. It is a book for everyone with each under-
graduate class fully represented with a long biography

Turning these pages, you will see pictures of those
who have participated in war activities and how
much they have done - through the War Bond and
Stamp Booth, Pin-up Boy Contest to buy an am-
bulance, Red Cross Drive, Scrap Paper Drive and
the Servicemen's Canteen. Pictures of these war ef-
forts are used as the dividing pages.
The yearbook has been divided into chapters with
administration, senior section, classes, activities, sports
and publications. Although sports activities have been
somewhat limited because of the war, all athletics
that remain have been supplemented by fine action
photos showing the highlight of each game. Because
football has been suspended during the past two years,

the space ordinarily devoted to it has been utilized
for a more complete coverage of basketball and minor

A new method of coverage was initiated this year
when the evening division was given more space for
its activities than in former years. This permits a
more detailed account of evening school functions.
Painstaking care in the arrangement of the Senior
Section has resulted in the easy identification of all
seniors in this part of the book.

Jerome Etxanf and Francine
Stanger, C o-Eclitorr of the
C0 MERCE BULLETI
COMMERCE BULLETIN. Led for the first time
in its history by a day woman editor, the Commerce
Bulletin was issued and distributed thirty-three times
during the school year in both the day and evening
divisions of the School of Commerce, Accounts, and
Finance, as well as the Wall Street Division. Francine
Stanger and Muriel Rosenhain headed day and night
divisions respectively during the first semester. The
rest of the managing board was composed of Leonard
Briendel, day assistant editor, Myron Sarecky, day
managing editorg Ruth Birstein, night managing ed-
itorg Jerome Evans, sports editor, and Lester Abber-
bock, business manager.
The Commerce Bulletin began its twelfth volume
faced with the necessity of a general staff reorganiza-
tion because of war demands. However, continuing

with its belief that a college newspaper is worthy
of merit only if it strives to benefit the entire student
body, the Bulletin lost no time in editorially com-
menting on deficiencies present in the School of Com-
merce, with most of the editorials being directed to
the student body. Pleas, reprimands and tirades were
not uncommon sights on Page 2.
The Bulletin, campaigned for a return of School
spirit and urged student participation in extra-cur-
ricular activities. Noticing the lack of courtesy which
prevailed in class rooms, the Bulletin co-operated with
faculty members in correcting the situation.
The Bulletin also co-operated with the various-
School committees in the sponsoring of scrap drives,
War Bond and Stamp rallies and contestsg book-
collection campaigns, and other events designed to
further the war effort. This year, the Bulletin, along
with other collegiate newspapers formed the Metro-
politan Council of Collegiate Editors.
The spring semester saw a change in the man-
agement of the Bulletin. Two members of the man-
aging board left their positions and Francine Stanger
and Jerome Evans were made co-editors. Myron Sar-
ecky, was called to the Army, and Leonard Breindel
resigned from his position. Muriel Rosenhain suc-
ceeded George Wall as editor of the night section,
when Wall joined the Navy. Ruth Birstein then be-
came night assistant editor. Lester Abberbock re-
tained position of business manager.
Among the new innovations of the managing
board was a more equal division of space allotted to-
day and night sessions. Columns were alternated and
editorials were written to refiect the opinions of both
day and night managing board members.
Notice the mini shortage on tive Bulletin rmjf ....
Additional Bulletin features were columns by Mar-
tin Ragaway who wrote "Fd Rather Be Trite," Lu-
cille Dreyfuss and Elaine Rich's column "Libel on
the Loose," Bill Keisler who wrote "Bill of Goods,"
Myron Sarecky who wrote "Mike Reports." Columns
by Hal Schneider, Francine Stanger, Marvin Sommer,
Albert Harris also appeared.
The Bulletins sport page, in co-operation with the
undergraduate Athletic Board, sponsored a campaign
for the return of football. "Strictly Speaking," jerry
Evans' column, and "Scrambled Sports" by Alan
Marcher also hit the press.
The social activities of the Bulletin included dances
in Lassman Hall and a joint Commerce Violet-Com-
merce Book Christmas Party. At this affair gifts were
distributed and Commerce keys were awarded to the
deserving staff members of the freshman handbook.

VARIETIES, N.Y.U.'s humor publication, experi-
enced one of its most successful years. Originally de-
signed to be of genuine interest to students through
its representation of college life and activities, "Vari-
eties" has broadened its scope this year to appeal to
the many servicemen who have come to New York
University under the Army Specialized Training Pro-
gram and have temporarily left the Square. Among
the reasons for the enthusiastic reception accorded
"Varieties" this year, were the many new features and
the revision of some old ones. One of the most pop-
ular additions was a photograph each month of a
beautiful co-ed. The young lady chosen, by Murray
Lee Fried, was known as "Miss Varieties."
More and more cartoons were added to each issue,
until thirty were included in one particular issue.
A humor column was written by Martin Ragaway,
while that perennial favorite, "The Chancellor" con-
tinued to report gossip about the undergraduate stu-
dents. The smartest fashions in clothes were reviewed
monthly by Lucille Dreyfus and Elaine Rich in their
column, "Vogues Gallery." A special edition published
by Varieties staff was the "Varieties Cartoon Caval-
cade," which contained more than 150 of the best
cartoons used in the magazine all during its history.
Extra credit for the magazines success must be
given to the art staff on the magazine for its bril-
liant work, which has added to the attractive appear-
ance of the publication. Martin Ragaway edited "Var-
ietiesn until his graduation in February, at which
time Eugene Friedman succeeded him. The staff in-
cluded Lynne Young, Literary editorg David Mann,
Copy editor, and Merton Holmon, Exchange editor,
Ina Rosenberg, News editor, Murray Lee Fried, Pho-
graphy editor, and Margie Dworetzky, Secretary. The
art staff included Louis Trakis, Marcia Feitelson and
Marjorie Abberman. Members of "Varieties" who
are now in the Armed Forces are:

COMMERCE BOOK. Comprehensive articles containing helpful
and intersting information for freshmen and undergraduates are pre-
sented in the Commerce Book, known as the freshmen Ubiblef' The
publication familiarizes the new-comer with University life at Wash-
ington Square and serves as a practical guide for upperclassmen.
An article on "How to Studyl' reveals the methods of deriving the
most from a college career. There are special features on life in Green-
wich Village, politics in the School of Commerce and discipline. An
amusing "frosh', dictionary defines over seventy-five terms that deal
with life at the University.
The Commerce Book attempts to provide the students with an
adequate knowledge of their surroundilngs, offering complete histories
of the University and of the School of Commerce, an article on the
proper use of the Commerce library, and a list of recognized fraterni-
ties, sororities, and clubs. Sports are completely reviewed and the results
of the previous season are given. Leonard Breindel was editor-in-chief
of the 1943 Commerce Book.

THE SERVICEMAN'S BULLETIN. New York Uis second
edition of the Servicemanls Bulletin came off the presses as scheduled
on April 27. Staffed by members of the Commerce Violet, Commerce
Bulletin and the Commerce Book, the Serviceman's Bulletin consisted
in the main, of feature articles, news, and pictures of happenings at
New York U during the past year. This year's issue was supplemented
by cartoons taken from the Varieties Cartoon Calvacade distributed
earlier in the year by Varieties magazine.
Sent only to former students of the School of Commerce who are
now in the Armed forcesfreceipt of the Servicemanls Bulletin last
year evoked letters of praise from former Commerce students who,
through the twelve page issue were able to renew college ties. Jerome
Evans edited the Bulletin assisted by Albert Harris, and Stanley Acker.
THE VIOLET NEWS, offspring of the Violet Yearbook is a
regularly published newspaper. This year, jerry Gale, Editor-in-Chief
of the Violet took over the editorship of the News. Irving Hochberg
was Associate Editor.
The purpose of the Violet News is to give a description of the
contents of the yearbook and to stir up circulation. It also serves to
introduce the student body to the staff members responsible for the
publishing of the school annual.
One four page six column issue was published this year. The lead
story of the issue dealt with the subject of the bookls dedication. The
front page also carried a story on the history of the Commerce Violet,
circulation statistics, and a story about former members of the Violet
staff now in the armed forces.

sity are guided by the governing bodies of the Violet
Skull, Christian Interftaternity Council and the Violet
Shield, jewish Interfraternity Council. The purpose
of these organizations is to promote harmonious re-
lations and greater Cooperation among their member
fraternities and the University. Besides their other
duties, the Violet Shield and the Violet Skull act as
clearing houses for the rush smoker and social dates
of their respective members. They encourage sports
participation including tournaments in basketball,
bowling, ping-pong, handball, swimming and football.

and a senior. Officers are elected annually and no one
fraternity representative may hold the same office
two years in succession.
The Christian fraternities are represented by the
Violet Skull. It sponsors an annual formal dance, at
which time all members join together, to strengthen
brotherhood among the fraternities. Many members
of the faculty were invited to attend rush smokers
during the academic year.
Because of the War, the Violet Shield and the
Violet Skull have temporarily disbanded and formed
an Interfraternity Council that acts in the same
capacity as that of the Shield and the Skull. However,
all fraternities are represented by this one body which
judges all fraternity activities. Phil Rosenbloom has
been elected president of the Council for this year.
Prericlent of the Interfmternlly Council
ORMED twenty years ago, the Panhellenic Con-
gress aims to unite all sororities, both Christian
and Jewish, at New York University. The con-
gress, made up of two delegates from each sorority
recognized at the University. regulates sorority ac-
tivities and supervises rushing and bidding through
Dean Dorothy McSparran Arnold, faculty advisor of
the Congress. Represented at the Panhellenic Congress
are the two intersorority councils which are made up
of member groups.
Delian Council was organized to promote friend-
ship, good will and harmony among the Christian
sororities, and to encourage strict observance of the
rushing regulations. Officers of the Council rotate
among the member sororities. A freshman orientation
dance, jointly sponsored by Delian Council and Violet
Skull, Christian interfraternity group, is held at the
beginning of each Semester. A formal dance concludes
the social year. President of the Delian Council is
jean Ann Smith, Alpha Omega Pi.
Tyrian Council was formed to further friendly re-
lationships among the Jewish sororities, and to facili-
tate a more uniform observance of the rushing rules.
The council sponsors a reception dance to welcome
incoming Freshmen. The President of Tyrian Council
is Ellie Smilen, Iota Alpha Pi.
The sororities have contributed much to the war
effort. They have served as hostesses at numerous can-
teens and have done volunteer work for various or-

HE agony of Pearl Harbor thrust us deep into war -
suddenly we realized the sacrihces that must be made to
make the world free again.
Many of our young men enlisted in the Army and Navy
rather than wait for their draft call. They were speedily trained
and stationed at home and on foreign shores, to defend our
country. These volunteers will not be forgotten.
It is only proper that we mention those on the staff of the
1944 Violet that were among these men:
