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- alienable rights. 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. GEORGE BURTON HOTCHKISS in the foreword to the 1941 VIOLET To the high ideals for which the men and women of the New York Univer- sity School of Commerce, Accounts, and Finance are fighting on the scattered battlefronts of the world. ff'1'T"' if .75 C if fyflafla k g I JV, .'

The Graduate School of Business Administration was founded at Wall Street, the Trinity Place building was purchased. Dr. Norris A. Brisco became the first dean of the School of Retailing, the first school of its kind in the country. A memorial tablet to Charles Ezra Sprague, Professor of Accounting in the School from 1900 to 1912, was unveiled in the Commerce lobby. 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 Department of Journalism lobby, were taken down from the old New York Herald Building and presented to the School by William T.

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. ARTHUR H. ROSENKAMPFF Cbnirnmn of the Accounting Depnrtnzenl 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 Accounting Department. 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. New courses have been developed recently. Life Insurance and Estate Management and a timely course in Financial Policies in Time of National Defense and War. MA JOR B. FOSTER Cbnirnnzn of Banking and Finance Department A. EARL lVlANVILLE Cbzzimzmz of BZlJf7Z6J.I Efzglirb Depmflmerzt 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- where. --...L --Qi WALTER E. SPAHR Chtziwlzmz 0 f Ecorzomici' Deparrzfmerzl f 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 of Education. 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 social sciences. 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 science. 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 added. EDWARD J. KILDUFF Chairman of General Cowie Group 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 University. 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- nalism offerings. 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. GREGORY MASON Cbrzirmmz of Iourmzlimz Department 4 STEWART W. Rowis Acfmg Ch6lf1'7l1rl1Z of Lauri Deptztzmevzz 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. 4 WILLIAM B. CoRN1s1.i. CfJttjI'7l1tl7Z of Il'ltz1ztzgeme1'zl Depm'!111e1zt 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 Department. 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 business affairs. 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- tion. 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. GEORGE B. Horci-miss Clblfiffwfdfz of A'l!l7'l'6lf7Z,Q Depfzrlmem 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- ment.

DORAU Cbaiwlzmz of Public Ulilizier and Tmfarpoffmtiofz ami Real Estate Departmentr 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. Dorau. 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 been developed. 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- vate concerns. 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. The Cfmzpm at reetz from lhe South Building ' -- --9-52 H -. TUDE T REL TIONS TUDENT RELATIONS include the activities of the Women's Adviser, Bureau of Employment, Committee on Prizes, Committee on Scholastic Standing, Recorder, Freshmen Orientation Commit- tee, Discipline Committee, and Commerce Library Committee. Assistant Dean H. Reutiman, associated with the School for the past fourteen years, is both adviser to and supervisor of the League of Women. Mr. Lawrence W. Zimmer is head of the Bureau of Employment which was organized at the School of Commerce in 1921. Mr. Zimmer has been director of the Bureau since 1928. In 1925, Professor Gerald E. SeBoyar became Chair- man of the Committee on Scholastic Standing. This committee was formed in 1900, at the founding of the School of Commerce, Accounts, and Finance in order to check the scholastic standing of the students. The Committee on Prizes, headed by Professor Arthur H. Rosenkamplf, has jurisdiction over all prizes and awards made in the School of Commerce. Professor Rosenkampff has held the position since 1930. HE Recorderls Off1ce informs the student of his academic standing and classification and checks the students record. The Recorderis Office also advises the student when he is in doubt about his courses. The office has been headed by Miss Florence Crandell since 1923. Each year, a program, including Freshman Con- vocation and a Freshman social, is presented by the Faculty Freshman Orientation Committee. Professene - ' ' -thefeommittee in 1934 for the pur- pose of orienting the new students. A C The Discipline Committee has been in existence since 1900. The committee is made up of faculty members who are appointed by the Dean for a term of one year. Professor joseph H. Bonneville has headed the committee since 1928. The School of Commerce can easily boast one of the finest business libraries in the country. This eminence has been due primarily to the efforts of Mr. Mulford Martin, Librarian of the Commerce Library since 1955.

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 them. 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 dancing begun. 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- ANN1s'rTfs EICHMAN S'i'ANL1sY ACKER JEROME GALE Vice-Preridenl Secretary Treamrei' T P l , .lJ 1 T 4 3 U 5 f '-vi , M aa ROLAND JACOBSON FREDA BELAGORE ALBERT GOLDSTEIN Senior Reprerentatitfe I-Iirtorimz Senior Repwferztnlitzfe napped sophomore president, "Chip" Anthony. "Chipl' 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 Reserve Corps. MARTIN RAGAWAY Senior Reprerefzmlive 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 Ragaway. Among the outstanding Juniors were Dick Galef. editor-in-chief of the Bulletin, Martin Ragaway. editor-in-chief of Varietiesg Jeanne Gleberman, head of the War Effort Committee, and Pete Olwyler, Gene Friedman, Bob Miller, and Stan Rubel. 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 Alvin Goldstein. 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 Dotty Meltzer. No, the Senior class won't forget about these things. They won't want to forget about them. l I 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 recognition. 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 CLASS OF 1944 ROBERT SANFORD Preridenl of Evening Senior Clary 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, Historian. Lothar Klesdadt climaxed six active years at the School by being elected President of the Night Stu- X ROBERT SEARS RICHARD HERMAN JOHN PAUL HENDRICKS Vice-P-reridefzl Secremfy Treasurer' dent Council and did an excellent job under very trying conditions. One of the most noteworthy events of the entire year for the seniors, was the Senior Dinner Dance held on April 15th in the Mandalay Room of the Hotel Delmonico. 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.

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. Prexy Bertha Stbweller at cl junior Clam meeting JU 1oRs BERTHA SCHWELLER President of junior Clary 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. l ROBERT ELKIN Junior Reprefenlalirfe 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 and success. Arnold C. Brackman was Art and Production Ed- itor of the Violet, and Assistant Editor of Production magazine. Other junior Class members who worked ELEANOR FORIN H irlorimz .ans ", . 5 A .- i.. BARBARA GORDON Se cfelary 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. lWADIil.lN E KlIRZllOCfK 'I 'ref1.r111'c' 1" I if 6 a i 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, Historian. 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 Frorla OPHS STANLEY RABINOWITZ 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 successful affair. 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 contest. 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 the class. E 4' ' . - if i f 1 all 'del 1 iff E, .!'.3m. 'i X.

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 to Varieties. Soph class publicity was handled by Marilyn Frischman. A r rx ,,.a,i fn it . 4,- lYlARlI.YN KROLL sli- N i 1.

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. Gil Dorrfmmz, ex-prexy of Froflv cltzrr C mm' in tzrnzeci forcerj seized by Snpbr FRO H President of F7'6J'b77Zd1Z Clair 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. zlffzwzzy Krm' being guided by F7'9.f,f771I672 pzd1'iJ'o11f, jerry Gale mir! Dotfy Meltzer. 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 if iv- 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 future years. Keep up your Hne record Class of '47, and there is little doubt but that you will be one of the out- standing graduating classes in the School of Com- merce, Accounts, and Finance.

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. EUGENE RAUL Preriffefzl of Clair of '46 ITH student enrollment decreasing and busi- ness activities demanding more of Commerce evening students, the Class of T46 found it rather difficult to form an active class this year. How- ever, following through in School tradition, a number of students formed a working nucleus which enabled the class to maintain its past record of activity in the School. 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 officers alike. The lower junior class proved that its members were activity minded when they challenged other evening classes in athletics. CLASS OF '46 f 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 record. MAIRSHA GRABOTT V ice-P1'e.ritZe12zf ANDREW P. ANDREW Trefzmrez' NH LEONARD BLAUSTEIN Secretary CLASS OF 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. jAcK GOTTLIEB SELMA BEAR Treamreff A Hirlorimz ' ra' ' H 3 Sv' .- rw Ia , Al Harrif, Dot Melfzer, zlflfwy Lou Baker at Frorb- Sopb Smoker mmf Hen Party NAT KLEPPEL Prefitieazl of Clam of ,47 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 held. 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. ROBERT LUSARD1 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- CLASS OF '48 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 Birstein, treasurer.

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. CHARLES ALEXANDER DORIS WEINER Vice-President Secretary 4. STANLEY MARKOWITZ WILLIAM L. GOMORY H ifforimz Tfeamrer CHARLES O'LEARY Preridenr of Clan of '49 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- coming freshmen. 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, treasurer. 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.

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- BASKETB LL Coach Howard Cmm, popular New York U. coach for the part 20 yearr, with bit "boy", 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 college basketball while studying at the University The 1945-44 Violet Kuonlnlmzt Tminer jack Kelly applier iodine lo wozmciecl Eugene 0'Brie1z. under the Army Specialized Training program, but War Department regulations forbade them from par- ticipation in inter-collegiate athletics. This was in direct contrast to Navy regulations which allowed such participation. 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 defensive ball-player. 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 school graduates. Come on fellowr, lefr get 072 the ball. . . .H S1l'66f7j7ZkQ' tzcffmz iz!

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. The half-time score was 26-21, with the Palisaders on top. The Heights Gym was the scene of New York Universitys second encounter. This time the United States Marine Barracks from Brooklyn served as the f1L'Zf7Zg Captain Sic! Tmzcfzbazmz. high .i'mrer of the 1943-44 h00ju'tez1i. 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. at half-time. 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 markers. 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 New Yorkers trouble all evening. The game was a close affair with the lead changing hands three times. and no more than three points ever separating the teams. Penn State led l7-16 at the half-way mark. but the Palisaders fought all the way, and with the Herb W'i1l.tb. 651. ceizler 072 .rlizrle ing fire. score 55-Sl, against them, and less than three minutes to play. Sarath and Mangiapane stole Penn State passes to score with lay-ups knotting the count, How- ever, Don McNary, the big Penn State center. whose nineteen points was the games high, made good a foul with a minute and fifty-one seconds to play. ,lack Long also scored a foul and the Lions led by two points with thirty-two seconds to play. At this point Sarath was fouled on a shot and drew two free throws.

The Violets bounced back on january 8 to defeat the University of Connecticut, but only some bril- liant shooting by O'Brien and a last minute goal in the closing seconds of the game gave them a 46-45 win. 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 tie the game. lt remained tied until the closing min- ute of the contest when Mangiapane made good two fouls which won the game for the Violets. Tanen- baum hit for sixteen points, with Sarath netting twelve.

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 Otto Graham, former all-American football and basketball player from Northwestern University, who was transferredto Colgate under the Navy program.

The half-time score was 25-14, with the Cadets leading. The Violets' high scorers were Derderian and Tanenbaum who put in eleven tallies apiece. By losing to Army, the Violet record dipped be- low the .500 mark with seven wins against eight losses. This was the second time in the team's history that the quintet fell below average.

Beginning of the outdoor mack renron. TRACK 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- ney Ewell. 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- men. The Violets ran theiswiftest mile relay of the year. Herbert Rubin, the Callanders, and Captain Walter Welsch, who was graduated in january, posted a 5:2-4.6 in the Millrose Games. The Hall of Famers started auspiciously with a victory over the Columbia Middies and Columbia on 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 National A.A.U. title to the New York A.C., after becoming the first college team in history to win in '-43.

Welscli had been a sprinter 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 Blue led by Larry Schmidt came off with a 15-40 victory. Welscli was the first Violet to pass the five mile Hag. The harriers balanced their record on October 8. The Princeton Tigers bowed before the flying New Yorkers on the Old Nassau hill and dale Course. Welsch came home first in 26:02. This constituted a new course record, as it was the first time the run- ners had traversed the course. Welscli made it two victories in a row when he led New York U. to a l7-58 victory on October l6 in Van Courtland Park.

To top the season off, the Violets won the junior Metropolitan Championship on November 9. Alex Jordon finished third, but was awarded first place in the scoring because he was the first runner represent- ing a team. The finale of the season was the I.C.-4-A's on November 13.

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 ASEB LL 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 Wyman. 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 New York U.'J 1944 war time bzneball squad of 31 memberr. nfl "Y0zz're om!" 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.

Since 1953 the Violets have gained the Three-Weapon inter-collegiate crown eight times. This year's championships were shelved because of the war. Sharing the brunt of the Violet attack were: Balk, Marmer, Wolfe, Irwin Finklestein, Henry Gorlin, Louis Alba, Isaac Saunders, and Peter Ballen. Isaac Saunders was the only member of the squad who was drafted during the campaign. I i -ul The Vanily Fencing Team. Touche! -3 CO-ED FENCING NDER the watchful eyes of Coach julio M. Costello, a green co-ed fencing team assembled in the Salle O'Armes to once again pick up the foils and epees which were laid down at the end of the last year's season. The team's record of last year was one of which New York U. need not be ashamed. The co-eds won five matches and lost one. The lone defeat was suf- fered at the hands of New jersey State Teachers Col- lege by a 5-4 margin. During the course of the season New York Uls fencerettes defeated Brooklyn, Hofstra, Hunter, St. Elizabeth, and Panzer in that order. Because of a late start the girls faced only two opponents. Their first match with Wagner College ended with the Violettes on the short end of an 8-1 count. The second match with the jersey City Re- creation Center saw the New York U. co-eds come from behind and win in a close 5-4 decision. The co-ed fencers sorely missed the services of Julia May the ben mam - er woman win. jones, last season's mentor. Her duties had to be- taken over by Coach julio M. Castello, men's fencing coach. Julia jones left the fencing scene for the duration in order to join her husband who is in the Army in Alabama. Over the seasons wars the Violettes chalked up 34 markers while allowing their opponents to score only 20. The squad was captained by Olga Cassino, who- was lost to the team this season via the graduation route. Her loss was a serious blow to the hopes of a successful coming season. Patricia Costello was. another senior who was a mainstay on the 1943 team. These two co-eds were the nucleus around which the- fortunes of the last years revolved. The fencing Vio- lettes were given the balance which they needed by a quartette of girls who had considerable prowess with the foils, epees and sabers. They were Dotty Starr, Marie Lenahan, Marguerite Barnash, and Miriam Polimoda. G01 Tha, A The co-ed feucirzg team.

Conse- quently, more emphasis has been placed on co-ed activities. New York U. has fallen in line with other schools. l 1 The first sport to make its aplearance this season was Field Hockey. The team, a ly coached by Miss Frances V. Froatz and captained by Evelyn Cole, had a very successful season. The held hockey season was flbllowed by a debut of Esther Foley's basketeers. The lNew York U. co-ed CO-ED PORT five dropped their first game to Wagner College, I7-15. However, the Violettes came back strong to win four in a row defeating Rider, East Stroudsburg State Teachers, Brooklyn, and Rhode Island, in that order. On March 3, Hunter College snapped the team's winning streak. The next day the girls turned the tide once more, easily outscoring St. joseph's College, 40-30. The swimmers, under Coach Francis Froatz, should have no trouble duplicating the fine work of last sea- son when they won three meets and lost none. In six- teen years of competition, the mermaids have won 77 meets while losing only 13. l I 5 The 1943-44 co-ec! Viale! b0op.rlem'. .Mala , 7 t l7?f'9 fb? ffff- O Ver fbe Het. Nou' for zz rbozver. MI OR SPGRTS A I TRAM RALS HOUGH hampered by numerous wartime con- ditions, Coach Gerald B. Emerson was able to to pull his tennis team through the season with two wins against seven losses. The netmen were able to blank Brooklyn College, 9-0, and edge out Brook- lyn Polytechnical Institute, 5-4, while losing to Lehigh, St. johns, Columbia, C.C.N.Y. and the United States Military Academy. During the seventeen years of Coach Emerson's leadership, his teams have amassed a record of 153 wins against 55 losses and three ties. Last year's team captained by Robert Lebolt, '45, was greatly handicapped, however. Recognized as a varsity squad for the eighth season, the wrestling team under the leadership of a new coach, jerry Hughes, lost to Brooklyn College and to Brooklyn Polytechnical Institute. The matmen started this season rather late since the coaching position was vacant for quite a time since all previous mentors were in the armed service. The "grunt and groaners' met Brooklyn Polytechnical Institute with a squad composed mainly of freshmen, and lost, 35-5, The grapplers again took on Brooklyn, this time bowing out, 35-5. New York U.'s rifle team finished its l6th season garnering the Metropolitan Intercollegiate League crown for the tenth time. The snipers, coached by Gil Shurman, scored 15 wins and lost two. Under the auspices of the Physical Training De- partment, officiared by Lee Bergman, a total of 550 students from the School of Commerce, Washington Square College and the School of Education partici- pated in the program which included the following sports: Track, Basketball, Handball, Volley Ball, Table Tennis, Swimming, and Wrestling, Silver medals were awarded to winners in these events, among which were Augie Auteiri in the track meet, George Smith in wrestling, and the "Gremlins" who won the basketball championship. l ' Watch the ball. fzwzping high.

Fl.flSHES: 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. His brilliant play almost won him the Haggerty award, given to the outstanding metropolitan basketball player. There were many who thought the New York U. ace was entitled to top honors in the New York area. TRA CK FLflSHIfS.' Ed. Conwell, sensational New York U. sprinter, climaxed a brilliant indoor season by equalling the accepted worlds record for the 45 yard dash. Conwell ripped off 45 yards in OiO4.7.

Earlier in the season Conwell flashed the 60 in world record time of O:O6.l at Madison Square Garden. Conwell shapes up as one of the great sprinting stars of the generation.

The stu- dent government in the day division of the School is placed in the hands of the Student Council. This body is composed of the oHicers of the Day Organization, Class Presidents, Freshmen advisers, representatives of the Day League of Women, the Commerce Bulletin. and the Undergraduate Board of the Athletic Associ- ation. Dr. Hayward J. Holbert is faculty adviser to the Council. Day Organization officers for the year were Albert Harris, president, Ferne Branhall, vice president, and Charlotte Raimist, secretary. To further student participation in war effort activities, the War Efforts Committee was organized, to direct the differ- ent types Of war work. The Stamp and Bond Commit- tee was under the direction of Eleanor Forin and Ina Rosenberg for the first semester. The co-chairmen who succeeded them were Ruth Bitter and Thelma Golden. The War Effort Committee sponsored sev- eral rallies, drives, and dances during the year. The War Bond and Stamp Committee held a pin-up boy contest to raise funds for an ambulance. The chairmen of the Student Council Constitution Committee for the first semester were Roland jacob- son and Martin Ragaway. The second semester, Alvin Goldstein replaced Martin Ragaway, who graduated. It was the responsibility of this committee to make the necessary changes in the constitution which the members of the Day Student Council felt were appro- priate and desirable. The task of planning the events of the academic year was given to Dorothy Meltzer. Francine Stranger and Robert Elkin.

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 CLASS OF 1944 ROBERT E. SANFORD, Preriderzz J.

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.

Y'I'8!I.f,7!I'Ci 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 each other. "Tony," the boot-black working on cl new clientele around the NYU "campnr" .

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- DAY LEAGUE OF M N straining formalities of the classroom. Chairmen of the teas this year were Ina Rosenberg and Florence Jacobson. 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.

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- in Y o eration.

ANN SOLOMON 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- EVENING LEAGUE OF WOM N 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.

Sigma Eta Phi now serves as an incentive for all co-eds to become active in extra-curricular affairs. Founded in 1937, this organization is a companion group to Alpha Phi Sigma, men's junior honorary. Those junior women who consider themselves potential members are asked to submit their qualifications based on extra-curricular activities during their three years at college. Members are selected on the basis of service, scholarship and character. Each year an annual dinner is held for new and old members at which time the pledge is taken, pins are distributed, and officers for the next year are elected.

The first chapter of Alpha Delta Sigma was founded twenty-six years ago at the School of journalism of the University of Missouri. Since then chapters have been established at many universities throughout the country, and today, the fraternity is recognized by, and affiliated with, the American Federation of Advertising. The decision to form a chapter at New York University was made in 1955 when a group of eighteen marketing students met with Dean Herbert M. Schiffer and Pro- fessor Darrell B. Lucas, and petitioned the national Office of Alpha Delta Sigma. The chapter was installed in May and was named after Professor George Burton Hotchkiss. The fraternity'S purpose is to strive toward the raising of the professional and ethical practices in the vocation of advertising. LESTER ABBERBOCK ROBERT SANFORD JOHN P.

MICKEY PHILLIPS MADELINE KURZROCK ELEANOR FORIN JEANNE GLEBERMAN 115 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. M. BOSNIAK M. KOEN R. FRIEDMAN L. PESKIN J. SILBERMAN I P'-.

The women joined them at the beginning of the follow- ing semester in February 1942. The Glee Club was under the very able directorship of Professor Albert M. Greenfield, who is conductor of the famed New York University Glee Club and the Hall of Fame Singers, and the newly-appointed director of the New 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. "A Gleeful Groupn 1 1 "- Not the Firrig No! the Secondg Not the Third-"' 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. "-Anybody care lo made -" 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 Club Dinner. 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 established. The officers of the club this year are: Leonard E. Sturtz, president, Vera Grusha, treasurer, Lou A. Phillips, vice-president, Irene Sturm, secretary, How- 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- cussed. 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. "- It tion? add up -"' 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 Accounting students. 2. To promote friendlier relationships between students of Accounting and their professors. 5. To introduce these students to practicing and established accountants. 4. To create a greater interest in academic and professional Accounting. 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- ing. 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- ing. 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 officers for the Accounting Club this year were Bertha Schweller, presidentg Eva Lazarik, vice-pres- identg Margaret Eenberg, recording secretary, Shirley Shapin, corresponding secretary, Barbara Gordon, treasurer. "-I crm get it ufholemle -'f 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 field. 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 publicity director. 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. "-If pzzji' to rzcfrerlire-" 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. 125 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 agency. 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.

Faculty Adviror Arnold Braclarnan, Art and Production Editor 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 are Commerce's. Credit for the successful 1944 Commerce Violet goes to Editor-in-Chief Jerome Gale, who produced Eugene Friedrnan Murray Lee Fried C 0-Literary Editor Photography Editor 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.

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 and pictures. H owiml F ogel imcl K il Dreyfiif Shirley Meizzz Ojjfice Manager 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, Rogizzwiy. Hochberg and Fiieclwmii bowing ii good lo oking ,reriozif Yozfrl think llvey were ivorkiizg fime Mike Ronzano, Ari.

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. VIOLET BOARD Editor-in-Chief . . .

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 Dean Schiffer, faculty aclvifor to Bulletin making ont a check for Leiter Abberbock, Bnfineif Manager 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. Q 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. Associate board members of the Bulletin are: Mickey Phillips and Hal Schneider, news editors, Norma Schilder, copy editor, Alan Marcher and Sy Prutinsky, associate sports editors, Cyril Jacquit and Stan Acker, co-advertising managers, Shirley Mentz, assistant advertising manager, Lynne Young, office manager, Anne Quinlan and Marjorie Shapiro, ex- change editorsg Ruth Eckstein, Adelaide Levine, and Shirley Portugal, News board, Marvin Sommer, fea- ture editorg Murray Fried and Jerry Fried, co-pho- tography editors.

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: Ed Goldberg Bert Berman Gene Schneider Stanley Kaplan Peter Olwler Leonard Kaplan Morton Linzer Mike Hirsch jerry Hershman Len Stern Herbert Kummel Mel Marx Buddy Lowenfield Marv Meyers Mel Margulies Will Glass Marvin Edelstein Edmund Feldman COMMERCE BOO 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. Leormrd Breindel, Editor PRODUCTION MAGAZINE PRODUCTION MAGAZINE, the magazine of facts, is now four years old. The magazine is a branch publication of the Manage- ment Society. Since Pearl Harbor, three issues, instead of the customary four, have been published each term. Under the guidance of Elli Somach, editor, a special postwar issue was produced last semester. Articles by Philip Murray of the Congress of Industrial Organiza- tion, William Green, of the American Federation of Laborg Fred Hamlin from the Department of Commerceg Major General C. E. Kilbourne, Superintendent of the Virginia Military Institute, Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler, President of Columbia University, and Dr. Howard Wodburn Chase, Chancellor of New York University have appeared in Production Magazine. i This semester, under the editorship of William Chen, Production Magazine devoted an entire issue to the problems of reconversion.

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. IGLET EWS 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. The paper also contained a full page of sports, and a general sports column, "The Sporting Trailf' The lead article on the sport page was a resume of the sports section of the 1944 Violet. 136 ERATER ITIE IOLET SHIELD -VIOLET SKULL The Christian and jewish fraternities at the Washington Square Center of New York Univer- 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. The Violet Shield held an informal dance during the first semester at the University, Each member group has two representatives on the Shield, a junior DEAN HERBERT SCHIFFER Fmlemity Faculty Aaftfiror 1 138 Violet Skull Alpha Kappa Psi Delta Sigma Pi Lambda Sigma Phi Sigma Phi Epsilon Theta Chi FRATER ITIE Violet Slrielcl Alpha Epsilon Pi Alpha Sigma Chi Phi Alpha Phi Lambda Delta Tau Alpha Omega Tau Delta Phi Tau Epsilon Pi 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. Philip Rorenbloom Prericlent of the Interfmternlly Council 139 ORORITIES ORMED twenty years ago, the Panhellenic Con- gress aims to unite all sororities, both Christian and Jewish, at New York University.

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- ganizations. 140 ALPHA EPSILON PHI ALPHA oM1cRoN PI BETA GAMMA CHI DELTA PHI EPSIITON DELTA ZETA IOTA ALPHA PHI LAMMA GAMMA PHI PHI cHI THEAT PHI OMEGA PI PHI SIGMA SIGMA PHI TAU ALPHA PI ALPHA TAU PI PHI ALPHA SIGMA TAU DELTA THEAT SIGMA PHI THETA UPSILON ZETA PHI ! mu , sw 1' Q 47: UH' -W 3?

Many members of the staff have been awarded Violet scrolls for their ready aid and willing service, but many others gave immeasurable aid and must know that the generous thanks of the Editor is their reward. It is to these men and women that the Editor wishes to express his heartiest appreciation. To Professor C. Hayes Sprague, Faculty Advisor, for his guidance and advice that has helped to make this, as all Violets of the past, an outstanding publication. His help and ideas on the art work and layouts were invaluable. A To Roland Jacobson - the Editor's best friend who was always ready with words of advice and encouragement and willing to burn more than his full share of midnight oil. To Mr. Irving Chidnoff and Mr. Grey of Chidnoff Studios for their patience and cooperation. To Mrs. Robert Kelly, jack Viall, Harry Mellor and other members of Kelly Pub- lishing Company for their valuable aid and assistance. To the journalism Department of Professors Mason, Whipple and Bates, Miss Beattie, Messrs Perrior, Raak and Aumuller for their words of wisdom through four years of study in journalism that played a major part in enabling the Editor to put out the Violet. To Deans Madden, Kilduff, Schiffer, and Reutiman, Dr. Holbert, Professor Stan- ley and all the other members of the administration and faculty upon whose cooperation and help the Editor could always count. To Miss Clara Bowie for the excellent job she did as recorder of the Violet. To Murray Lee Fried, cameraman superb, no stunt was too hard for him to photo- graph, no hour was ever too early or too late. And to all those who helped in any way to make the Editor's task an easier one.

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: VIOLET MEN FORMERLY IN SERVICE jerry Gale, Editor-in-Chief . ,.,..... ..... ..i...,.. ..,. . . , U.
