-KOQK 4' V v C f"N'll1 ERSTADE ET PRIEST MDCCCXXXI :gf if 'T' NEW YORK UNIVERSITY ' College of Arts and Pure Science ' College of Engineering -L NMWMpQ M..h.,.M.a,NmM A LW 1 IOLET CLASS OF 1946 E, the class of 34-6, dedicate this year-book to a renaissance, a revival of an old spirit which has been absent from the campus since the beginning of the war. As we leave college, the war against the Japanese continues with ever-increasing fury. A united cam- pus continues to meet the responsibilities imposed by a nation at warg a patriotic, resolute student body is maintaining its contribution to the national war effort to help bring the war to a swift end. Yet, despite the grimness of these epochal days, the cam- pus has managed to bring back the spirit and tra- ditions of another era. As we leave, classes begin to assume normalcyg hazing, and the eternal battles between the upper and lower classmen reappear. Cheerleaders are beginning to assume their old gusto, and those colorful rallies are once again retaking their place in college life. As we leave, intramurals reappear in their pre-war form, and again excite that spirit of competition which is so typical of the American campus. Fenc- ing, basketball, and baseball were never discontinued, but that spark, that certain something which sets off dynamic, vibrant living from mere existence, was lacking. But now the spark has been kindled into Hame, a flame which we hope will never be ex- tinguished. To its continuance, we dedicate this year-book. To The Gmcluczies I am glad to have the privilege of greeting you in this significant year. The skies are so much brighter than when you began your work that I know we must all feel a great heartening as we plan for the future. I think too we must feel a firm resolve that if the collective wisdom of mankind can avoid it such a holocaust must not he repeated. I know that you will cherish your college years even though they have been passed in a period of turmoil and of difheulty. We can look forward to the future of our country with confidence and in that future I wish for each of you an honorable share. Cordially yours, Chancellor 7 ENGINEERING TH ORN DIK li SAN' ILLE Dean HENRY JAMES MASSON To the Members of the Graduating Class: The Violet for 194-6 is notable for the fact that it contains an account of the first class at University Heights to have spent its entire campus career amidst the turmoil of World War II. You have seen the tran- sition from a peacetime to a wartime cam- pus, and have suffered many deprivations of the amenities customarily associated with college life here. You have carried on in good spirit, and persevered in the traditions of your predecessors. We shall look forward to the day when your class- mates in the Services will return to com- plete their academic work. May that day be soon! THORNDIKE SAVILLE WILLIAM R. BRYANS Assistant Dean I Assistant Dean in charge of Graduate and Evening Divisions ff 3.1 To the Members of the Graduating Class: When war began we feared that all campus activities would autmatically elim- inate themselves. To be sure, some of them have been drastically curtailed. But the Violet, an invaluable record of onels days at the Heights, has proved to be a hardy perennial. You have had the wisdom to seek an ARTS WILLIAM B. BAER Dean education in order to equip yourselves to take part in the difficult post-war period that lies ahead. No one can predict just what the World will be like. Yet there is no one who will want to shirk his re- sponsibility in preventing a recurrence of the present tragedy. I know of no better place than a college for a young man to learn to Work With, to think With, and to live with his fellowmen. WILLIAM B. BEAR WINTH ROP R. RANNEY Secretary ORMON D J.

Teach us to close our ears to Pharisees anrl hypocritesg to . . . propaganclists, rezl anrl black ancl green and blueg to all the sons of Belial. Open our hearts that we may hear the voice of civilization, a faint small voice, sounding gently and per- sistently through the millennia. CLASSES Seniors ROBERT RUBINGER JOEL ZIMMERMAN President Secretary HE Class of '46 started off on the right foot by having a larger group of boys at Freshman camp than any other previous class. Arriving at the campus, we were intensively in- structed in the proper campus demeanor by paddle swinging Sophomores. Deciding that the end-our ends-would be better served by taking control of the paddles, we proceeded to rally 'round the call of "HEY 4'6,'. Garbed in the traditional Violet and 'Orange we crushingly defeated the notorious Skull and Bones. On Bloodless Thursday and at Chapel Rush, the Sophs daring enough to stand and fight for their class were outnumbered, out- fought, and soundly beaten. We were hailed by all as the most spirited yearlings that had ever come to New York U. Came the night of Freshman Ducking and we turned out 450 strong. Shivering we paraded down University Avenue to be ducked in the Fountain of Knowledge. Being now a full-edged part of the University, we had the right to choose our class officers. A new system was inaugurated at which we voted for these men in Chapel after they had held forth on their views and expounded their platforms. Aaron Morgenstein and Charles Boneparth were elected President and Secretary respectively. Having once been elected, these men set about organizing the activities of the class. ln order to learn more fully the desires of the class an Advisory Council was set up. It was under this setup that our first social func- tion was held. A successful Yearling Frolic was held. Th: Freshman Class Band led by Paul Dince sul" plied the music and the evening was toppfd off by the Class Ofbcers, aided by John the Cop, choosing the Queen of the Dance. Late in the year and after having success- fully completed our Freshman courses we be- came Sophomores. Our ranks had thinned during this time for the Army had found our Frosh eligible. Again the time came for us to elect our class officers. This time our President was Charles Boneparth and the Secretary was Aaron Morgenstein. But, again, we lost a man to the Armed Forces, Charles Boneparth left and Aaron Morgenstein became the Acting President. A special election was held in No- vember for the vacant office of Secretary and Samuel Lomask was elected. Now came our time to initiate the Frosh into the ways of New York U. Our Skull and Bones was organized under the leadership of Carl Levinson and we made a deep impression upon the lowly Feshmen. Continuing its social -plans the Class decided upon a Soph Stag. The Follies Bergere was chosen, Sally Rand was to be featured, but two days before it was to be held the Follies went into bankruptcy. However, in keeping with all our traditional spirit, we organized a Rifle Team and also began to hold interclass competitions. Also, in order to foster a feeling of greater class spirit we formed separate football teams for both Artsmen and Engineers. With the accelerated program then in force our sophomore year was over as quick as a wink and we found ourselves entering our Junior Year. Our pride had suffered no down- falls but our members were becoming increas- ingly hard to find. The Army and Navy were taking their toll. Nevertheless we were upperclassmen and we had to carry on. Class elections were held, and Morris Brenner and Arnold Rosenberg were elected President and Secretary for the Junior class. For the first time it happened that both men were Engineering students. Swinging into action President Morris Bren- ner immediately organized a class council which was to act as his Cabinet. This council con- sisted of the President and Secretary of the class and six other men. There were three en- gineers, Howard Fein, Benjamin Hampton, and Bernard Lepselter, and there were three Arts- men, Stuart Caron, Miles Ginsberg, and Sey- mour Rabinowitz. After taking stock of the sit- uation President Morris announced that "The Class of '46 intends to continue as the most active and nearly pre-War like class on the campusf, Owing to the fact that the class, ranks were being steadily depleted because of the draft situation, it was decided to hold the Junior Promenade at the earliest possible moment, thus making sure that as many men possible could attend. ln accordance with this decision two committees were formed, one the Social Func- tions Committee to handle the organization of the Prom itself and the other the Prom Publicity Committee which was to handle and secure the necessary publicity needed to insure the suc- cess of the Prom. ' SENIOR CLASS COUNCIL I SENIOR PROM Under the leadership of Benjamin Hampton the Social Functions Committee got under Way, and with Chairman Miles Ginsberg at its helm the Prom Publicity Committee began intensive and extensive advertising of the forth-coming event. Through the diligent work of both of these Committees the successful prom was organized within five weeks time. The class council de- cided to contribute to its success by subsidizing forty percent of the cost to all Juniors who would attend. With this incentive the Prom was held on April 28th. It took place at the Hurricane Club and a majority of the Junior class at- tended. Adding to the success of the Junior Promenade was the fact that an entire section in the center of the club had been reserved for the Junior class. Duke Ellington and his band supplied the entertainment. Not seeking to make money for the class treasury the Junior Prom- enade lost money, but all who attended felt that the loss was sufficiently compensated for by the good time had by all. With all that was going on the class managed to get men to man the Mall in anticipation of a Mall Rush which did not materialize as Frosh Hazing was banned by the office of Student Personnel. Class activity remained at a low point until the fall. With the return of cool weather and lighter class schedules the Junior Class be- gan to perk up again. Football gave an added impetus to our activities. With its return came the advent once again of the Football rallies and dances. The Junior class took the lead in sponsoring the now famous and highly success- ful '6Beat City Rally and Dancew. This dance marked the high spot of social events for this season. Under the direction of President Morris Brenner and Dance Committee Chairman Allan Kritzer the dance proved to be a huge success. It was attended by such a great number of students that its profits were sufficient to make up for the deficit incurred by the Junior Prom- enade. Not only that but the class treasury was built up to the extent necessary to make the subsidizing of the Senior Prom possible and also have suflicient money left to present a class gift to the school and enable the class to put out a VIOLET that came close to being of prewar content and quality. Thus our Junior year came to an end in grand style. We are now Seniors and some of us will graduate on June 13th. But again as Seniors our activities were not of a colorless nature, since we strove to outshine all the other classes on the campus, and we did. Elections were held for officers to govern the senior class. Chosen for this task were Robert Rubinger and Joel Zimmerman. Bob Rubinger was our President and Zimmerman our Secretary. This time the leader of the class was from the Arts school and the 'scribe' from the Engineering College. It must be remembered that in October 194-4 the Faculty Committee on Student Activities issued an edict which prohibited any Frosh Hazing whatsoever. Severe penalties were to be imposed on any offenders of this rule. Though not directly involved or affected by this order, the class of '4-6, which had always stood for in- creased school spirit, felt that the underclass- men were being deprived of an age-old tradi- tion. They felt that this tradition acted in the best possible manner in welding the various classes in the school into a homogeneous mass. Led by President Rubinger the Seniors present- ed a plan to the Faculty whereby they would act as policemen or referees to conserve the traditional hazing activities. They also agreed to take full responsibility to preserve the prop- erty of the campus as well as its tranquility. For the two weeks during which the hazing lasted, the seniors sporting gold buttons in their lapels walked around the campus over-seeing the process of hazing. At times, it seemed as if things would get out of hand and that both Sophomores and Freshman would disregard the dictates of the Seniors. But again resorting to the cry of "HEY '4-6", sufficient seniors were concentrated in one area to make any resistance by either class absurd. Although hazing was carried on there was no Bloodless Thursday, for it was felt fand rightly sol that the excitement engendered by that day would prove too much for the Seniors to cope with. ln any reminiscences about hazing one must remember our beloved John the Cop Whose firm hand was always in evidence whenever some Freshman was being unnecessarily hazed. It was because of his absence that the Faculty Committee felt hazing would get out of hand. It is hoped that, with this precedent that the Senior Class of 194-6 has set, hazing will con- tinue to be a part of New York University life. The end of hazing officially came for the Freshmen on a chilly night in November. The Seniors led by Kenneth Ewald saw to it that the Frosh, clad in multi-colored pajamas, got a warm reception as they ran the gauntlet of the paddle-wielding seniors. To top off a night of fun the Beat City-Frosh Ducking Dance was held and was a rousing success. In the first week of December when Presi- dent Rubinger really started his term of office, he appointed a Senior Council to help him ad- minister his olhce. Appointed to his council were Morris Brenner, Bernard Lepselter and Joel Zimmerman fex oflicioi all of the College of Engineering. The College of Arts and Pure Science was represented by Louis Soletsky, Les- ter Leight and Leonard Polonsky, President of the ESAC. Wishing to continue the tradition of the class of 34-6 as the one class on the campus to approach pre-war status, President Rubinger and his council chose as their first job that of making sure of the appearance of the Senior year-book. With that end in mind, and also with the intention of giving equal representation to both Colleges on the campus, he appointed as Co- editors of the VIOLET Aaron Morgenstein of the College of Engineering and Bernard Lieber- man of the College of Arts and Pure Science. These appointments were made in February 1945, following the commencement of the new Arts College term. However, after several weeks, Morgenstein found it impossible to continue on with the job and he resigned his position. The council was then left with the question of who to appoint in his place, and with no troubled settled on George Karron, former Business Manager of the Heights Daily News. With these appointments taken care of, the Senior President turned to the question of the all important Senior Prom. Bernard Lepselter was chosen as the Prom Chairman. He was faced with the question of a formal or semi-formal, or informal prom. The question was solved by sending out cards to all the Seniors request- ing them to indicate their wishes. As was to be expected the overwhelming vote was for an in- formal dinner-dance. Then came the problem of where to hold the affair. Scouring the town the final report seemed to indicate the Hotel Delmonico. The date set was April 21st. The night of April 21st was for all who at- tended a memorable one. ln all there were forty couples present. Again following the example of the Junior Promenade the class treasury sub- sidized the cost of the affair and also made possible the distribution of souvenirs to all the ladies present. At the dinner-dance, Mr. and Mrs. Maurel Hunkins and Mr. and Mrs. P. A. Porteous pre- sided as honored guests of a proud Senior Class. The night was a fitting climax to our activities on the New York University Campus. There was only one more hurdle to come to before we say a fond good-bye and become alumni, and that is Commencement. On June 13, 1945, the class of 1946 will graduate most of the members. On September 24, 1942, we started out with a class in excess of 600 students. Three years later, after war took its toll, only 100 of us are left and not all of that number will graduate, for many of them have not seen fit to take an ac- celerated program. We are leaving the campus. Many of us will enter professional schools, and many more of us will enter the business world. But we shall never forget our memorable days on the New York University Campus. ' JOHN BARNEY ADAMEC Engineering New York Rifle Xa Pistol Clubg A.I.Ch.E.g Skull Sz Bones.

Juniors Morton Doblin, Secretary, and Arthur Gallant, President HE class of 1947 cannot tell its full story without telling the tale of a wartime campus. Officially registered as the class of 1947, most if not all of us will graduate sometime during the year of 194-6. This is due to the accelerated courses which are being given to the student body as a whole. When we entered we were warned to expect a college life that would he greatly changed. Primarily, the curriculum had been revamped to suit those men who expected to be in the services before long. The four year course had been accelerated to two and one-half years, for the engineers, it was to he given in sessions of twelve weeks duration. This was done so that men approaching the age of eighteen could com- plete their terms, work and transfer directly into the Army Specialized Training Program. Another unusual circumstance which the class of 7-if had to sustain was the omission of the traditions of college lifeg this meant that hazing, ducking, and the traditional ceremonies con- nected with inaugurating new classes were also to be war casualties. During our first term we chose Seymour Perlov of the Arts College as President, and Walter Kilrain, an engineer, Secretary. Under these two men, we planned to hold our first social affair, the 'cYearling Frolicw. Arrange- ments had been practically completed when a survey of the advance sales showed an astound- ing lack of college spirit. However, in the fall, with the class depleted by war calls, we began to fall into step with the collegiate spirit which had begun its slow re- turn to the campus. With the return of the up- perclassmen to school in October, the hazing started. It had probably been delayed because of the lack of Sophomores on the campus as well as the fact that hazing traditionally did not end until some time in the middle of Novem- her. However, though hazing started late, it was a distinct success as far as all were concerned. We had a few days of rushing the Mall, and a successful Ducking Dance which the Seniors held in our honor. However, due to the passing of John "the Copi' Quigley, the umpire of the traditional Bloodless Thursday Games, we were unable to take part in these usual college life ceremonies. ln March, we elected new oflicers to run the affairs of the class. Those elected were Austin x I 38 L Lyon and Mark Todrin, who were both from the College of Engineering. During that term our crowning achievement was the long-awaited Class of '47 Dance. Although we had lost many men to the Armed Forces, the dance was a dis- tinct success and made it possible for us to fill our class treasury. Now as Juniors we had the chance to elect our men again, and those so honored were Ar- thur Gallant of the College of Engineering and Morton Doblin of the College of Arts and Pure Science. President Gallant and Secretary Doblin at- tempted to regain lost ground and instill into the Class of 74-7 some of the spirit which it had lost little by little, just as it had lost members to the Armed Forces. As Juniors the class started off very slowly and gained a poor reputation on the campus. However, seeing their opportunity, the class came back and attempted to hold a Lawrence House dance in March. This dance proved un- successful linancially, primarily because it was scheduled during the Engineers' Exam week. Feeling that they had gained valuable ex- perience, they decided to hold a Prom sometime after engineering exams. Plans were made but had to be submitted to the Emergency Student Activities Council. This was necessary because the class had no treasury with which to run or subsidize the proposed Prom. The plans were quickly vetoed by the ESAC, which found itself hard pressed for money to run already existing campus organizations. At the present moment the Junior class has given up all hope for any affairs to take place before their Senior year. It is hoped, however, atvthat time the class can regain its prestige and spirit by running the best Senior Prom and put- ting out the best Violet ever. One thing the campus can say about the Junior class-they entered under terrifically changed conditions - conditions which made the social life of all classes a doubtful thing, yet, though handicapped in this way and dis- couraged by bad luck in many of their ventures, it has continued to try. N April 12 of this year, practically on the eve of Ger- man surrender, Franklin Delano Roosevelt passed away while resting at Wvarm Springs, Ga. The tragic story of how President Roosevelt died just prior to his greatest victory will never he forgotten, just as his deeds are destined to live on and he remembered hy those who revere democracy and freedom. To those of us who are graduating, little need he said concerning the greatness of our departed leader. We have literally grown up during his administrationg few of us remember any other president. We saw how his desire to improve the station of that much talked-about Mcommon man" could never he compromised. No maligning news- paper editorial or hostile congress ever changed his course, he was always Mjust a little to the left of centerw. Perhaps the greatest tribute to President Roosevelt was made hy the New York Times, a newspaper which often opposed his policies. Said the Times, uMen will thank God on their knees a hundred years from now, that Franklin D. Roosevelt was in the White House . . . in that dark hour when a powerful and ruthless harharism threatened to overrun . . . civilization." 40 41 Oh grim, grey Palisades, thy shallow Upon the rippling Hudson falls, And mellow mingled tints of sunset.

N View of the war emergency, the Student Council in May of 1943 drew up and passed a plan for the formation of a temporary and more compact student government for Univer- sity Heights. This organization, known as the Emergency Student Activities Committee, op- erates under the Student Council constitution, and has all the powers of the Student Council except that of changing its structure. Later events proved the wisdom of such a plan. With the drastic reduction of the student body, and the consequent decrease of student funds, it soon became evident that a normal full-strength Coun- cil could not possibly be organized and main- tained, and that the streamlined ESAC was con- ducive to greater efliciency. The committee consists of eight members. The Faculty Committee on Student Organiza- tion appointed Leonard S. Polonsky and Charles Wohl as Senior and .lunior representatives re- spectively. The ICSAC chose Leonard Polonslcy to serve as chairman and Charles Wiohl as sec- retary. Upon the withdrawal of Kenneth Could for military service, Abraham Kligerman, Sec- retary of the Sophomore Class assumed the posi- tion of Soph President, while Nathaan Stock- hamer, previously President of the Freshman Class, was elected to the ofiice of Soph Secre- tary. These men served on the ESAC as Soph- omore representatives. The four Freshman rep- W, 46 resentatives were Max tlduddyj Hausen, Louis Capozzoli Jr., the upper-Frosh officer, and Manuel Emanuel and Warren Adler of the upper-Frosh group. . Through the efforts of these men, the stu- dents at the Heights were provided with a very active social program during the past two sem- esters. Dances were held successfully in the Gymnasium and Lawrence House. The profits for these affairs were donated to various char- itable organizations. The most important activity of the ESAC is the management of the Student Activity funds. The Finance Committee of the ESAC super- vises such appropriations. The ESAC also set up a Student Committee on Discipline under the co-chairmanship of Leonard S. Polonsky and Stanley Gevirtz. The other members were Charles Wohl, Terrence lVlcCor- mick, Nathan Stoclchamer, and Fred Rubin. Recently, at the request of many of the Uni- versity students, the ESAC formed a committee to investigate reforms in student government. This group, led by Terrence McCormick con- tained representatives from the student body at large and the ESAC. lts recommendations for an enlarged governing body with semi-an- nual elections was accepted both by the ESAC and by the student body. U. E. C. Q HE Undergraduate Engineering Council is a governing body composed of popularly elected representatives of the student classes in the College of Engineering. lt was established in 1031 to Coordinate social and other activities, and to distribute funds for engineering societies. Basing its future plans on the policy that there will be a revival of campus activities, the U. E. C. plans the publication of a handbook to supplement the Palisades Handbook which shall stress the engineering societies and fraternities. The ofhm-ers for the 1944-45 season were: Chairman, Herbert Stolzerg Vice-Chairmang Henry Morrisg Secretary-Treasurer, William Bruning, The Faculty Advisor is Professor Charles E. Gus. HE Undergraduate Scholarship Committee of the Arts College was established in 1929 as a bond between the faculty and the student body in curricular matters. Originally all members were drawn from the Junior and Senior classes, but since the war emergency men have been taken from lower classes and have been placed on the Committee in an advisory non-voting capacity. This year discussions were held with the fac- ulty on the questions of restricting Frosh stu- dents to only one science, cheating on examina- tions, and the changing or altering the Student Lounge. The officers for the 1944-45 season were: Chairman, Arthur Mogermang and Secretary, Albert Altchek. U. S. C. l l Mr. and Mrs. Porteus, popular hosts at the student activities center at the Heights. Lawrence House HE leaving of the class of 1946 will mark the tenth year that the Lawrence House has been the center of all student activities. Students gather here from nine in the morning until late in the evening, some come to sit in the Lounge, some come to eat in P.A.'s luxurious cafe, some come to play ping-pong, shuffle pitch, or chess and checkers and others come to do yeoman work in the publication olfices that can be found in the upstairs rooms. Under the supervision of genial P. A. Porteus and Committee Chairman Al Kritzer, the Law- rence House committee ran the usual and al- ways successful Friday afternoon dances and an occasional Saturday dance sponsored by the various clubs and classes to be found on the campus. lt is well to note that the Friday after- noon dances and some of those held on other days of the week were used to collect money for the Red Cross, the National War Fund, and other worthy charities. To the delight of the Freshmen who were ducked during the hazing, the Lawrence House had on hand hot coffee and doughnuts to help drive away the chill that gets in one's bones after that hectic affair. This yearls Violet Patch Dance was a huge success and the proceeds from it were used to provide new records and games with which the students might while away time. To all men who entered the campus as Fresh- H1611 the Lawrence House was a haven. For it was here, and only here, that the Frosh could be safe from the swinging stinging paddles of the vicious sophomores. Begun as an innovation of Robert Weller and the Lawrence House Committee, a "Miss Law- rence Housen was chosen from all the girls pres- ent at the Friday afternoon dances. The girl so chosen could be sure of receiving much atten- tion from both Weller and Kritzer and her name and all dimensions appeared in the succeeding issues of the Heights Daily News. Topping off the procedure was a choosing of ulVliss Lawrence House of l9457' from among those who had been the chosen ones each week. Neither Weller nor the Committee felt capable of performing this diliicult job and so Walter Thornton was asked to come and do the judging. Much to the surprise of all-he came. With posters plastered all over the campus the dance held on Friday, May 11 proved to be a big success. Not only did Thornton appear but there was also a Universal picture scout present. An admission price was charged and it was well-worth paying only to see the feminine pul- chritude, the money being given to a worthy charity. LAWRENCE HOUSE COMMITTEE A typical Friday afternoon dance at Lawrence House. 49 Violet GEORGE A. KARRON Co-Editor 0 tell the story of the '46 Violet is to tell the story of a struggle. It all began in ,lan- uary, 1945, when Aaron Morgenstein and Ber- nard Lieberman were appointed Editors of the Violet by class president Bob Rubinger. Cwing to added and unexpected work, Morgenstein re- signed, leaving Lieberman to remain as Editor- in-Chief. Since the task of turning out a year-book was judged to be too great for just one man to handle, Bob Rubinger appointed George A. Karron to the post of Editor several weeks after Morgensteinis resignation. lt is under Lieber- man and Karron that this Violet finally appears. As work was begun on the Violet all sorts of unanticipated dilhculties began to arise, in ad- dition to the normal worries which plague any Violet Staff. First of all, preparations for this Violet were begun at an exceptionally late date, partly because of the lateness in making the Editorial appointments, partly because of the time lost between Morgenstein,s resignation and Karronis appointment. The staff of this Violet were always hurried, always under tension. BERNARD LIEBERMAN C0-Editor However, from the very beginning, Editors Karron and Lieberman sought to make this issue of the Violet the best to come out during the war. The necessity for haste never succeed- ed in deterring us from our goal. The theme of this year-book was selected be- cause of its timeliness. The renaissance of school spirit has brought about a delightful transformation in student morale, and the Editors felt that this new spirit, intangible though it is, was fully worthy of the dedication of this year-book. It is appropriate, at this time, to convey our deep appreciation of the services rendered by the Staff, Don Nathan, Milton Bronstein, and Lester Leight were great fellows to work With, and all contributed substantially to the prepa- ration of this book. We should also like to thank Mr. Harry Mellor of the Kelly Publishing Co., for the favors that he has done and will do for us, Mr. Kerker of the Delma Studios, and last but far from least, Miss Dembska for her superb patience.

With former Sports Editor Leonard Ansell assuming the reins of the Editor-in-Chief, the News, in its very first editorial last September, released its policy for the year. ln order to prepare for the conver- sion back to a peace-time campus, the News led the drive to revive peace-time traditions, and customs and openly encouraged the ressurrection of war-casualty organizations. Perhaps the News itself was the living example of the slow return to normalcy that all organiza- tions had to go through. For the first time since November 1943, the publication returned to a three issue a week basis. King football, a net result of the agitation of the previous spring, was back on the campus after a two season lay- off. ln the fall, the sports department led all the others in the popularity race, for it was in that field that the activity was brewing. A Presidential election year once more found the News reHecting campus sentiment. Editorial- Heights Daily News ly the paper came out for the fourth term and in the feature columns a series- of political inter- views with the social science professors ap- peared. The paper achieved its first timely tri- umph when it carried editorially and above the mast-head the late election results of the night before. However it was not until the second semester that the bomb exploded for at that time came the encounter with the Emergency Students Ac- tivities Committee. The student treasury was not able to stand the strain of the three issues of the News each week, and after a heated council session had ended, the News was officially a bi- weekly, despite the signed petitions which re- quested the maintenance of the status quo. The News then proceeded to attack the E.S. A.C., claming that the lawful student govern- ment was undemocratic, and that the ineptitude of the council was the factor that necessitated the reduction of the publishing schedule. This campaign was one of the most violent ever ex- perienced on the Heights campus, the News' editorials being exceptionally vituperative.

A.C., of its own accord, voted that certain changes should be adopted in the government structure. However, the News was thoroughly castigated by Professor H. Hammond Pride for its failure to print letters in rebuttal to con- troversial matters. , The Heights Daily News, on the morning of April thirteenth carried to the campus the news of the death of our beloved leader, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The paper which had been completely set-up was hurriedly torn down when the news came. In an editorial above the mast-head, and in a lead story on page one, the entire story of the happenings at Warm Springs, Georgia were given to the students. During the year the Heights Daily News cov- ered news of importance that happened on the campus, Lost and found ads were put in, news of the Hall of Fame balloting was carried, the Presidential election, the elections for class oHi- cers, news of contests in every field and subject were extensively reported, as was news of ex- aminations and sports and all the other items that go to make up a balanced paper. All this was carried on with seldom a break in the appearance of a copy. However, at one time, the paper failed to appear for several days due to a paper shortage. ln order to reaffirm his good faith Ansell drove himself and his staff to put out an eight page issue showing the scof- fers that it could be done. c Besides the usual troubles of getting and writing the news of the campus, Editor Ansell was troubled with a very short-handed staff and continual changes in his Managing Board. The only man who completed the year in his original role was the Sports Editor, Joe K. Minster, a United States Army veteran. Continuing with the columns such as 4'Round Ohio Fieldn by Joe Minster, 'aln Daniel's Denw by Daniel Schever, and "Jazz Notes" bv Bob Levy, there could also be found political columns by both Dave Fisher and Earl Mittleman. New innovations and ones that were of in- terest with the student body were t'Poor Rob- erts Almanaci' written by Bob Weller and a sports column which was written by Editor Leonard Ansell, On May eleventh the last issue of The News appeared. MORRIS BRENNER Edifor-in-chief HE Quadrangle has come a long way since its first appearance on the campus I5 years ago. Its editorial policy of always improving and enlarging its format has paid dividends in more, bigger and better magazines. Yvhen the present managing board took con- trol last September, it was feared that it might not be able to carry on the Quadrangle, let alone its tradition of improvement. The articles of high caliber that we were used to publishing were scarce. Arnold Rosenberg, co-editor, left for the Merchant Marine before the staff could take advantage of his long experience as Asso- ciate Editor. It was necessary to recruit an en- tirely new staif and train them in the intricacies of publishing an engineering magazine. ,Iohn Lubin, business manager, left for the Navy about the time that the November issue appeared. For the third time since Quadrangle was established representatives attended the annual convention of Engineering College Magazines last October. The meeting was held at the North- western Institute of Technology, Evanston, Illi- nois. The men representing Quadrangle were Morris Brenner, Editor and Stuart Reiner, Asso- ciate Editor. They brought back with them sev- eral new ideas which have been incorporated uadrangle into the magazine. They also presented some of Quadrangleis publishing procedures which were not used at the time on any other publications. The last time that we had representatives at the convention was in 1941. Cll.NRl.ES WUIII, lfIlSIlIl"SS .i,IllIflgC'l' 4 After returning from the meeting Morris Brenner, Editor-in-Chief, and Charles Wohl, Business Manager, immediately began a vigor- ous campaign to secure new advertisements. The campaign succeeded. At the same time it was announced that to facilitate a more complete campus coverage two issues would be added to our schedule thus mak- ing a total of 6 heing issued per school year. Following a traditional expansion and im- provement policy new features have been added which include: a color cover with the traditional masthead plus a contrasting color photograph covering the rest of the page, a new feature, Stratoscripts, which supplies the Aero. Eis with news items, and Medley Corner which will con- tinue until the Medley suspension is lifted. ln order to provide engineers with an en- gincerls opinion of Broadway, George A. Karron was appointed critic and his reviews are now a standard feature. And since the advent of vet- erans on the campus a page devoted to and written hy them, Violet Vets, has lreen started. Plans now call for a four color cover and pulilication on a monthly liasis as soon as con- ditions permit. The present four-man managing hoard having proved such a success that it un- doulmtedly will be continued.

Coox and Walter Kilrain worked close- ly with Art Editors Emanuel Gerard and Hyman Feldman to perfect a pleasing, superior artistic lay-out for the semi-annual magazine. Winthrop R. Ranney acted as faculty advisor. Much good material was received, and linal selections for publication included critical articles and prose from Wagner Bridger, Jordan Goldman, Ira Sturtevant, Leonard S. Polonsky, and Alvin D. Coox. Poetry was contributed by Stanley D. A. Moss, Hal Strudler, Sidney Gewanter, Martin Grayson, and Guy Levinstein. Following the excellent reception of the win- Review ter edition, and encouraged by a very large turn-out of fine material from both Artsmen and Engineers, Editor-in-chief Polonsky and Asso- ciate Editor Coox decided to increase substan- tially the size of the spring issue in order to furnish means of expression for more contribu- tors. The artistic plan of the preceeding issue was continued and expanded by Feldman and Gerard. Material finally accepted for printing included short stories, critical essays, and book reviews by Jacob Wigod, Ira Sturtevant, Sam Sulsky, Arthur Freedman, W. H., George Abend, Guy Levinstein, Alvin Coox, Leonard Polonsky, Hal Strudler, Stanley Moss, Martin Grayson, and Sidney Gewanter. Yeoman-like service was rendered by the Business Board composed of Robert Rubinger, Daniel Hodas, and Sam Sulsky. Lester Leight was Advertising Manager. Alpha Phil Omega LPHA Phi Omega, National Service Fraternity, is one of the largest fraternities in the country. It was founded at Lafayette College in Easton, Pa., in 1925, and expand-ed until it now envelopes the entire United States with its 100 active chapters, numbering over 10,000 brothers. This fraternity is unique in that it combines an extensive program of service to the colleges, the faculty, the students, and the country with the regular social life of a fraternity. It is the only organization of its kind in existence. Gamma Omega Chapter was founded at University Heights in 194-2 although another chapter still exists at Washington Square College. Gamma Omega has been extremely active on the campus during the past few years. lt conducted a scouting survey of the undergradu- ates, distributed applications for and taught American Red Cross First Aid and Life Saving courses to Heightsmen, conducted the annual NYU Collegiate Red Cross roll call and dance, initiated the Heights War Fund Dance, and published the Student Directory. Throughout the year Gamma Omega chapter held informal dances and theater parties. The sociallprogram was completed with the annual dinners, at which pledges were initiated and new officers in- stalled. The faculty advisors of the fraternity are Professors Perley L. Thorne, Atwood H. Townsend, Edwin R. Henry, Mr. Robert A. F owkes, Mr. John R. Knudsen, and Professor Arthur Scholten, Pro- fessor Scholten being initiated at a recent induction dinner, The chapter is indebted to these men for their suggestions and advice and for their intense interest and help in aiding the chapter to maintain its ideals of "Friendship, Leadership, Service." 58 CLASS OF 1946 Lewis Rusoll, Honorary President Arthur Friedman, Honorary Vice-President Norman Katz Frank Tepper Joel Zimmerman CLASS OF 1947 Lawrence Bregman, Treasurer Fred Rubin, President Leonard Ross, Vice-President Milt-an Beck David Schacter William Lubin Yale Citrin Harold Grossman Abraham Kligerman Martin Hosenfield Howard Skolnick Howard Greene Ralph Geller Stanley Weiler, Secretary Harvey Weinberger, Historian CLASS OF 1948 Jerry Varlotta Rolland Pocker Martin Pincus Sheldon Rosen Bernard liingold FRATRES IN FACULTY Prof. Perley Thorne Prof. Atwood Townsend Prof. Edwin Henry Mr. Arthur Scholten Mr. Robert Fowkes Mr. John Knudsen Lieut.

For with the return of the pigskin to the Violet campus for the first time since 1941, came also the return of a dormant college and campus spirit. Jack Weinheimer, a University Heights fixture for twenty years, and former Junior Varsity coach, was handed the dillicult assignment of restoring N.Y.U. to the gridiron. It was no easy task for the newly appointed mentor to round out a squad from completely green material to engage in the seven game schedule, during which N.Y.U. tri- umphed twice. Ross Cherico, crack Violet lineman under Mal Stevens, and a discharged veteran, was appointed line coach. Joe Consagra, pint-sized hilfback, who also played for Stevens, was named as backlield mentor. 72 Very little time had been alotted for training, and only Don Meyers, captain of the team, had ever had any previous college experience. Thus it was still a team in the experimental stage that lined up for the traditional opener against Lafayette at Ohio Field on October 9. The Leopards proved too fast and too experi- em-ed for Weiiiheinieris untried eleven, and the Violets were buried under a 39-0 score. Still attempting to find the best starting lineup, Wleinheimer moved Tom Capozzoli from tackle to fullback. However, even with this' and numerous other changes, the Violets could not stem Templejs onslaught the following week. Once more the Hall of FEIIIICTS went scoreless as the Owls ripped the losers' defense to ribbons, and went on to win by 25-O. Against Boston College the next week, N.Y.l,'. finally broke into the scoring column, when Toni Bertone and Wailtcrr Scott caught touchdown passes from Capozzoli, as the Violets bowed, 42-l3. Closing the campaign, N.Y.U. improved consid- erably. They routed C.C.N.Y. 45-0 for their first win, lost to Swarthmore, 21-0, and closed on a high note, upsetting Brooklyn College, 13-7, 73 Basketball NOFFICIALLY ranked as the countryis third top quintet, this season's Violet bas- ketball team will go down in Hall of Fame an- nals as the most record-minded crew ever to represent the university. Even before the N.Y.U. live engaged in their first contest, they ran into a wave of favorable publicity that certainly promised to do the pre- dominately sophomore-freshman squad no good. However, after an erratic season, and boasting only a spotty record, the Canmnen were chosen to represent District 2 in the N.C.A.A. tourna- ment, on the strength of their showing in the campaignfs final games. ln this stretch drive, the Violets lived up to their pre-season press notices, as they toppled five out of six of the nation's outstanding teams. Al Crenert, Frank Mangiapane, Sid Tanen- baum, Don Forman, and Adolph Schay es carried the New Yorkers into the N.C.A.A. finals against Oklahoma A. SM. only to bow to Bob Kurland and the Aggies, 49-45. However, the Palisaders gained their third place rating by whipping Bowling Green, 63-61 in a tremendous finish. T4- The mid-Westerners had been runners up in the lnvitation tournay. The quintet's record, in- cluding the tournament contests, was 16 won and 8 lost. Numbered among the latter, in coach Howard G. Cannis twenty-first year, were some real heartbreakersg while the win over Ohio State in the N.C.A.A. Eastern Regional finals, was one of the thrillers in court history, as the Violets came roaring from ten points behind in the last two minutes, to nip the Buckeyes, 70-65 in overtime. As far as individual performances are con- cerned, this flock of Violets hung up a number of new standards that are liable to stand for some time. Grenert' and Tanenbaum both broke the old N.Y.U. scoring mark of'256 points held by Jerry Fleischman. Grenert racked up a sea- son total of 271, added 35 tallies in tourney competition, and finished with a total of 306. Tanenbaum registered 243 markers during the regular season, came through with 59 in post- season contest, and totaled 302. To add to this, both were named to the all-City five selected by sportswriters of the metropolitan press. At the outset, the Violet indicated they were a record-minded aggregation, as they trampled Union Junior College in the opener, 103-28. This broke the old mark of 89 against Upsala set two years ago. The Hall of Famers rolled on, defeating Ft, Hancock 62-30, at the Heights, and Rochester 53-39, in the earliest Garden opener ever. However, December 13 proved unlucky as the Violets came a cropper at the hands of Oklaho- ma A. SM. for the first time, 44-41, in a very tight duel which the Cannmen lost at the foul line. Still experimenting with a starting lineup, Cann's charges toppled Brooklyn Poly, 59-24. A week later, N.Y.U. journeyed to Flatbush and trimmed Brooklyn College, 57-48, for their ninth win in ni11e meetings with the Kingsmen. On Christmas night, the Hall of Famers dropped their second contest. Trailing Tennessee by 11 points with five minutes to go, after a laeka- daisical exhibition. N.Y.lf. came surging back to knot the count at 48 all, However, a shot by Walther of the Vols with less than a minute re- maining drove the nail into the Violet coffin. Marty' Goldstein, spotty all season, gave his finest exhibition, scoring 17 points. Five days later lX.Y.U. struck the right road again as they crushed Colgate, 57-36 for their sixth victory. Once more Goldstein led the Vio- let scorers with 14 tallies, along with Tanen- bauni who totaled a like number. At this stage the Cannmen appeared to be on their way, as they made it two straight runaway wins by swamping a tall Cornell outfit, 52-30. Grenert and Tanenbaum led the scorers with 16 points apiece. N.Y.11. made it eight of ten when they trampled Connecticut. T3-45, and then topped Fordham by the same total. Then the cagers travelled to hostile Buffalo to engage Wlest Vir- ginia. The contest was close and tense through- out, with the Mountaineers eking out a 41-40 win over the Cannmen. Thus far the Palisaders had dropped three games by a total of six points. N.Y.U. in a breather, crushed little St. Francis, 78-33, and prepared for the final seven regularly scheduled games of the usuieidei' schedule. Once more the New Yorkers journeyed to the hinterlands. but they' might as well have "stood in bed", as the star-studded Valley Forge Hos- pital Base quintet downed them by 13 points, 61-48. It was the most one-sided defeat suffered by the New Yorkers all year. On February 10, N.Y.U. faced Notre Dame in the twelfth annual renewal of the Colorful rival- ry. The lrish jumped off to a commanding half- time lead. However, lY.Y. U. center Adolph Schayes, a mid-season acquisition making his Carden debut, and little Don Forman, inserted in the lineup out of sheer desperation, began to take charge. Schayes outplayed Notre Dame's touted Vince Boryla in the Hnal stanza, while Forman proved to be a real spark plug and an excellent scorer. The Violets staggered the lrish in the last period and had them all ready for the knockout blow, but time ran out on the Hall of Famers and defeat number five was written into the books, 66-60. i After dropping two in a row thereby jeapor- dizing their tournament chances, N.Y.U, faced favored Temple, one of the nationis top quintets, at Convention Hall a week later. The Violets not only upset the dope, but with Frank Nlangia- pane giving a magnificent exhibition, crushed the Owls, 64-45. On February 21, the Cannmen could not move against Joe Lapchickis defensive outfit, and St. John's toppled the favored Vio- lets for the fifth straight year, 34-30. The enig- matic Palisaders were proving too much for the fans to figure, playing brilliant ball one night, and fizzling the next. However, the answer wasn't long in coming, for in the second half of the Army game the Violets began to play as ex- pected, and then continued through the season. N.Y.U. dropped the contest to the powerful Cadets, but made up a tremendous deficit in the final minutes, and were nipped 54-51. It was an impressive performance, and indicative of the way the Violets were to play from there on in. Meeting Temple in the Garden, in the second part of the quintets' home and home series, the Violets were a perfect basketball machine, as they trampled the Owls, 35-54 to establish a new regular season Carden scoring record. ln the seasonis final, City College felt the brunt of the rejuvenated Violet attack, 75-48. Then came Tufts in the first tournament encounter, N.Y.U. won. 59-44, and the rest is history. Track ' OACH Emil Von Elling this past year had less good material from which to build a strong indoor track team than usual, because of the exigencies of war. However the veteran Violet mentor merely turned his attention towards specialization, and produced a mil-e relay quar- tet of championship caliber, along with a speedy two mile foursome. Although N.Y.U. lacked its customary strength in individual events, several Hall of Famer com- petitors did distinguish themselves. Stanton Cal- lender, one half of the Callender twin's combina- tion, proved that he was among the best middle distance men around, consistently placing with the leaders at 1000 yards. Little Armand Osterberg, star of cross country and only a freshman, was another to show prom- ise, hitting his peak in the climactic l.C.4-A meet, by winning the two mile run, Maurice Callender, pitted against strictly top-notch com- petition in '600,s', also showed to good advan- 78 tage, as did Herny Eckert, sturdy Hall of Fame distance ace and dependable relay runner. First real test of the campaign came for the Von Ellingsmen in the Metropolitan A.A.U. meet on February 3. They emerged with flying colors, as the mile and two mile teams triumphed, Stan Callender annexed the 410002 and his brother was close second to a former N.Y.U. star, ,lim Herbert, in the '600,. In addition, Bill Lubin was runner-up in the sprint event. In the initial major meet of the indoor sea- son, the following week, the mile foursome again won handsomely, and in so doing won the John G. Anderson trophy for N.Y.U. for the second straight year. This trophy is annually presented to the mile relay team which accounts for the fastest time of the evening. Five men in all saw service on this team throughout the season. They were Mil Parker, Stan Callender, Ed Wonilowicz, Bull Lubin and Maurice Callender, and they ran in that order, with Stan and Wonilowicz alternat- ing on the second leg. Next on the track agenda was the Boston A.A., and the Hall of Famers again acquitted them- selves admirably. The two mile quartet won easily, and Stan Callender topped a strong field in the Lapham '1000' in 2:18.6. Coach Von El- lingis mile team faced an all-star foursome of John Dibeler, Herb McKenley, Elmore Harris and Jimmy Herbert, and lost by scant feet. Madison Square Garden was the scene of the next meet, the New York A. C. games, and N.Y.U. again shone in its specialties. The mile relay men, running two races, triumphed once, and suffered their only loss to collegiate competition to Army by feet in a speedy race. The two mile team, on which Phil Sonneborn, Armand Oster- berg, Frank Martin, Henry Eckert and Stan Callender were used at various times, again won convincingly, while- Eckert finished a strong third to Charles Beetham and Don 0'Leary in the Matt Halpin half-mile. In the final event of the National A.A.U. track championships, held in the Garden on February 24, N.Y.U.'s dashing mile baton wielders aven- ged their earlier defeat at the hands of the West Pointers, to establish their claim as the out- standing eight furlong team in the East. Von's boys dropped a heart-breaker to those same Army lads in the sprint medley, losing by inches, and the Violet two mile quartet bowed to powerful M.l.T. Pitted against overwhelmingly powerful squads from West Point and Annapolis, the best N.Y.U. could do in the I.C.4-A's at the Carden on March 3 was grab third place honors. Osterberg surprised by taking the two mile run, and the mile relay team notched still another triumph. Stan Callender was deprived of a well-merited victory in the '1000', which he had won, when he was disqualified on a mere technicality. Eck- ert took second in the mile. In the two final indoor meets of the campaign, the Knights of Columbus on March 10 in New York, and the Knights of Columbus two weeks later in Cleveland, the Palisaders mile and two mile foursomes coped with all comers, each team winning twice. Stan Callender placed in '1000' in both meets, as another season ended. Baseball OMPLETELY outclassing Brooklyn College and the College of the City of New York, which together with New York University made up the wartime edition of the Metropolitan Col- legiate Baseball Conference in 1944, and losing only three games while winningten during the entire season, the 1944 Violet baseball squad more than acquitted itself when the gloves and bats were put away at the end of NYU7s 54th year in baseball last May Piloted for the 23rd straight season by Coach William V. McCarthy, the Hall of Famers lost only an early season game to Navy, 9-l, a one- run ten inning aiiair to Army, 4-3, and a 2-0 en- counter at the hands of Boy Neuberger of City College. Otherwise, the NYU nine was invinc- ible, racking up 108 runs to its opponents, 39. while crushing Drew 10-2, beating Colgate, 10- 53 taking Stevens twice, 9-0 and 4-lg rolling over City twice, 3-0 and 15-2, nipping Colunibia, 4-3, and smashing Brooklyn three times, 8-1, 17-5, and 25-6. 80 'Throughout the campaign, the team was sparked by two players, pitcher Ralph Branca and shortstop Ed Yost. Branca performed a herculean task by pitching 100 innings, starting every game except one, achieving a record of 9-3, allowing 63 hits and 28 runs, striking out 77, and giving up 36 bases on balls. Ed Yost was the team's strongest hitter, batting at a 1333 clip, and leading the squad in runs-scored, runs- batted-in, and home runs. ln addition, he cut off many a run with his spectacular fielding. As a testimonial to their line playing, both Branca and Yost were signed by major league teams at the close of the season, with Branca pitching for Brooklyn and Montreal and Yost being used as a utility inlielder for Washington during the summer. Around the infield the Violet squad had Bill Kroc, a strong hitter but a weak Helder, at third, Bill Crowley, only a notch under Yost as an all around competition handling sec- ond baseg and Bob Spaholz, an Engineering student from the Heights, playing first and cap- taining the team. In the outfield the posts were all manned by basketball players, Howie Sarath planted in left, Marty Goldstein, a .360 hitter, in center, and Gene 0,Brien and Frank Mangia- pane alternating in right Held. Behind the plate, freshman George Olsen did all the receiving, ending the year with a batting average slightly over .300. Coach Bill lVIcCarthy's 1945 aggregation, much greener than the preceding year's, took three out of its lirst 5 games, losing to Navy, 11-1, and to Yale, 6-5, while beating City twice and Kings Point. There seemed little doubt that the team would retain the tftle in the MGBG, which was augniented by the return of Fordham to baseball, but it appeared that it would have trouble against superior teams outside the league. Rifle and Tennis ESPITE a minimum of publicity, the New York rifle team continues to emulate Old Man River, and roll along against virtually all comers. This past season the nimrods compiled the amazing record of twenty-nine victories against only three as might be expected from Army, Navy and the Coast Guard Academy. Victims of the Violets stretch from coast to coast, and include both the Pacific Coast Con- ference champions, the University of California, and the mid-western titleholders from the Uni- versity of Chicago. Most frequent victims of Corporal 'fChuck', Slusser's squad was Cornell, which bowed to the New Yorkers three times. Leading the sharpshooters was Captain Frank Tepper who hung up an exceptional season mark. Among the other veterans to score highly were Monte Florman, Walt Losee, Terry Mc- Quire, and Milt Daniels. Tepper was re-elected to the captaincy of the ,45-,416 riflers. With an exceptional background of state, local, and sectional titles the 1944 Tennis team tried valiently to carry on the Violet court tra- dition. Despite their efforts the Emerson coached netmen fell short of a .500 season, winning but four of their nine contests. Brooklyn Poly, Queens, and Brooklyn College were Violet vic- tims. City, Army, Columbia, and Swarthmore took N.Y.U. in their stride. Both Brooklyn and City were met twice. Murray Levine and Sy Prutinsky were co- captains of the team. Fencing and Wrestling MONG the teams hardest hit by wartime conditions the fencing squad under the tutelage of Coach Jules 'Costello, undoubtedly ranks high. In past years Violet foilmen have always ranked among the eastern and national leaders. This year was definitely the exception, however as the Castellomen went down to five defeats in six starts. Remarkably enough the season started on a distinctly high note, as the Violets took the mea- sure of a good Columbia outfit. This was to be th-e last taste of victory that the swordsmen were to enjoy during the 1944--415 campaign, however. Draft inroads were largely responsible for a re- organization of the squad that took place shortly after the opening match. The next tilts were with Army and Navy, and both service schools took the Palisaders' into camp in hard-fought contests. The next outing for the fencers saw Columbia's lions gain re- venge for their earlier setback. Brooklyn College and the Philadelphia Fencing Club rounded out the unhappy season for the Violets. The Kings- men were victorious by only one point. Success was almost .equally elusive for Jerry Hughes' matmen. The wrestlers won but two of their six matches, and both of these victories were administered to Brooklyn Poly. Columbia, Brooklyn and the Merchant Marine Academy gained wins at Violet expense. 83 As we grow olcler and the shades begin to lengthen and the leaves which seemed so thick in youth above our heads grow thin and show the sky beyond, as those in the ranks in front drop away and we come in sight, as we all must, of the eternal rifle-pits beyoncl a man begins to feel that among the really precious things of life, more lasting anrl more sab- stantial than many or all of the objects of ambition here, is the love of those whom he loves anrl the friendship of those whose friencl- ship he prizes . . X . FRATERNITIES Interfraternity Council HE lnter-fraternity Council was organized at New York Univer- in 1929 when the need for some type of governing organization in this important phase of college life was recognized by the Uni- versity authorities and by the campus fraternities. The Council was formed to foster inter-fraternity spirit through social and athletic affairs, and to formulate rules regarding the problems which con- front the individual fraternities and the group as a whole. ln this respect, the Administration of the University has granted the Council the sole authority to pass upon the establishment of any new fra- ternity at the Heights as well as power to supervise inter-fraternity relations in general. In accordance with its policy on inter-fraternity social affairs the IFC held its first dance of the season early in February. Eager to promote the reviving school spirit, the fraternities decided to make this affair a Rally-Dance to spur our hoopsters on to victory in the traditional N.Y.U.-Notre Dame game the following night. The pr-esidency of the Inter-Fraternity Council rotates among the member fraternities in the order of their installation on the Heights campus. This year the office was held by Milton R. Bronstein and now Aaron H. Morgenstein of Pi Lambda Phi, Norman Knowlden of Zeta Psi is Vice President, and Morton J. Doblin of Phi Sigma Delta is the Secretary-Treasurer. The members of the Council are Psi Upsilon, Delta Phi, Zeta Psi, Pi Lambda Phi, Phi Sigma Delta, Ta Delta Phi, and Zeta Beta Tau. 86 MEMBERS OF THE INTERFRATERNITY COUNCIL National Delta Phi Phi Sigma Delta Pi Lambda Phi Psi Upsilon Tau Delta Phi Zeta Beta Tau Zeta Psi OF NEW YORK UNIVERSITY Chapter Gamma Delta Gamma Delta Gamma Gamma Phi Upsilon Year 18410 1913 1896 1837 1938 1906 184-7 87 Delta Phi ELTA Phi, the third oldest national fraternity, was founded at Union College in 1827. Gamma Chapter at New York Univer- sity celebrated its 100th anniversary in 1940. During the past century many Delts have attained prominence in their particular fields of endeavor. The more outstanding of these are Charles H. Snow, former Dean of the College of Engineering, Arthur S. Tuttle, chief consulting engineer for the City of New York, and John Lowry, the builder of Radio City. Active support has been given various extra-curricular activities of the University. Brothers Lavis and Brooks both serve on Quad- rangleg Brother Kleinknecht serves as manager on the football team, Brother Eckert has participated in several varsity sports, including football and track. Brothers Lavis, Sabalos, and Brooks are render- ing tutoring assistance in mathematics, physics, and chemistry to the A.S.T.P. students attending the University. Other organizations num- bering present "Delts" among their members are the A.S.M.E., l.A.S., H.C.A., Rifle and Pistol Club, and the Bristol Pre-Medical Society. Due to the war, many Brother "Delts" are serving in the armed forces but the chapter has overcome many of the difficulties pre- sented by the war and is well on its way to its pre-war status. Delta Phi has had an unusually successful social year, holding a number of informal dances, several smokers and Weiner roasts, one formal banquet, and its annual New Year's Eve Dance. ffl- PVC f H "P- 88 CLASS OF 1946 William C.

The Delta chapter came into existence at New York University in 1913. The fraternity spread rapidly throughout the country, establishing outposts as far west as the University of Colorado, as far south as the University of Texas, and as far north as the University of Wisconsin. The fraternity now has 20 chapters, forming an unbroken chain of fraternalism through most of the education centers of the country, There are three National Awards made each year by the frater- nity at its annual national convention: the Leon Brummer Cup for the best chapter of the fraternity? The Victor lcove cup to the runner upg and the Lambda Scholarship cup to the chapter with the highest scholastic average. Delta won the lcove Cup in 1927 and the Brum- mer Cup in 1928 and 1935. Delta Chapter of Phi Sigma Delta has completed its 31st year on the New York University campus. During that time its members have actively participated in inter-fraternity athletic programs and social functions. The fraternity has had a busy and successful year with the usual number of dances and stags. ' Among its alumni, Phi Sigma Delta is proud to include Lorenz Hart of the famous Rogers and Hart songwriting teamg Sidney Kings- ley, author of many well known playsg Robert Gessner, professor of motion pictures at New York University. Phi Sigma Delta is proud of its fine service record. With its high percentage of men in service, "Phi Sigsv can be found at all the battlefronts of the war-in all branches of service. With hope in its heart, the Deltas at home await the day when the Brothers across the seas will return home to solidify those bonds of fraternalism that have been wrought in the past. f 9 if 90 F RATERS IN FACULTY Robert Gessner CLASS OF 1945 Adrian Schutz CLASS OF 1946 CLASS OF 1947 Morton J.

"Pi Lam" was founded at Yale University in 1895. Today there are thirty live chapters in the United States and Canada. Gamma, the oldest active chapter, was founded in 1896 at University Heights. It has always been one of the most active and largest fraternities on the campus, represented not only in Phi Beta Kappa, but also in the major activities on the campus. Its active Brothers are holding, or have held, positions as presi- dent of the Inter-fraternity Council and the American Institute of Electrical Engineersg Secretary of the Emergency Student Activities Council and of Perstare and Praestareg Art Editor of Quadrangle, staff members of the Heights Daily News and Managing Board Edi- tors of the same publication, presidents of classes, and members of the Lawrence House committee. Pi Lams were also active on the old Student Council and on the Undergraduate Engineering Council. There are likewise Brothers on the varsity basketball, baseball, track, and rifle teams. The vice-president of the Heights Menorah Society and the organizer of the school of Commerce Student Service Or- ganization are also Gamma of Pi Lambda Phi. Among the many prominent alumni who wear the pin of our fra- ternity are: Lawrence A. Steinhardt, U. S.

It was the second chapter of the fraternity to be organized, the first being at Union College in 1833. Following a policy of conservatism, the fraternity has organized only 28 activ-e chapters throughout this country and Canada. The building of the present chapter house began in 1898, and it was completed the following year. During the war-time housing shortage, the University requested that the house be used as a dor- mitory for Heights students. ln View of the fact that most of the members were soon to leave for the service, the chapter decided that this was the wisest course to follow. In October of 19441, the house was returned to the chapter, and the fraternity was once again active. Since that time the chapter has been in the slow process of re- building its organization. The house has been repainted and fur- nished, and the fraternity members are once more occupying its halls. In October 1944, the Delta welcomed back Eugene J. Foley, now the President of the House, who returned from service in the Army as a lst Lieutenant. A number of members are actively participating in campus affairs. Robert Feshkens and Prosper Burotivich are firing on the Rifle Team, while Eugene Starbecker is a member of the Fencing Team. The war has left its mark on the Delta. To dates it has received news of the death of six Brothers -- and news of others wounded. The Delta has many illustrious alumni, among them being Deems Taylor, music critic and composer, Reginald Warrenrath, concert baritoneg Henry Noble McCracken, President of Vassar College, William Kingsley, President of the U. S. Trust Company, Supreme Court Justice Garvang and William fBillJ Hulse, famed track star. g A - . , J yi -'u 94 CLASS OF 1942 Eugene J. Foley, President CLASS OF 1947 Eugene N.

Tau Beta Phi was founded at the College of the City of New York in 1910, and now has twenty-four active chapters, spreading from Manitoba to Texas. Gamma U, the Heights Chapter, was established on December 15, 1938. Its membership consisted of seven menw- and its club house, at the beginning was the gym lounge. ln Feb- ruary, 1939, an apartment, was rented to establish a degree of per- manency, and until the past year, Tau Delta Phi maintained a "house,' on the campus. The war took its toll on the membership of '4Tau Deltw, and it soon became expedient to close the apartment at the Heights. The chapter, however, is still very active and the Brothers cfon- stantly participate in extra-curricular activities on the campus. By the time the war is over, Gamma U. hopes to restablish its permanent headquarters at University Heights. Throughout this last academic year Tau Delt was guided by the able Herbert Goodfriend. When he left for the armed services he was succeeded in the oflice of President by Warren Davis with Arnold Horowitz as acting president for the Height's chapter. gl?-gifgfllllll .

Since its inception, Zeta Beta Tau has stood for high scholarship and service to the community, school, and nation. The fraternity now has thirty-four active chapters and forty-two alumni clubs throughout the United States and Canada. Zeta Beta Tauis alumni include many of the most prominent men in the nation. Some of these men are: William Paley, president of the Columbia Broadcasting System, the late Justice Benjamin Cardoza, the late Henry Horner, Governor of lllinoisg Adolph Lewisohn, noted philanthropistg Dr. A. A. Brill, distinguished psy- chiatristg Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter, Cecil Brown, radio news commentator 3 and Federal Court Judge Grover Mosco- witz, who was one of four founders of Gamma Chapter at University Heights in 1904. Although Gamma has lost many Brothers to the armed forces, it is still carrying on, as strong as ever. Under the capable leadership of Donald H. Nathan, the New York University chapter of Zeta Beta Tau has maintained its fine reputation, both on and off the campus. Some of the Gamma men who have played prominent roles in extra-curricular activities are: Irwin Cohn, manager of the varsity basketball team, Arthur Gallant, president of the Junior Class, Bernard Lieberman, co-editor of the VIOLET and member ,of Perstare and Praestareg Ira Kaplan, student leader of the University Band, and Arthur Steir, president of the reorganized Hill Historical Society. With the cessation of hostilities in Europe now a reality, the war- time members of Zeta Beta Tau eagerly await the return of Brothers from the armed forces. - ka-:J Ah Mfplr Fx, 'Av X ', rm ,an ew ' '-gnnxusnuxnxxmggsxi H'-A 'fir ml' Uflgguunuinf 5 e f:.'5'9-r. a ' '- Er : -9'v,,5 ,. . . g.-5, .,,:' eg 151: SMA , , gt, ,.1,- V tr, , , Z -S -N .. ,- Y 1--Q., V vm K' ' V. fi Jini!e1'l?f1,4W.Y QE n H' g .Arg Wg , 1' H6572 B TX 18923 V 98 CLASS OF 1944 Charles Bernstein CLASS OF 1945 Donald H.

Foundation was primarily the work of John Sommers, William Dayton, and John Skillman, who agreed upon a constitution and a ritual that laid special emphasis upon character and social ideals. In pursuance of a well-defined policy of expression, it was not long before there were Zeta Psi chapters at all the leading eastern colleges. ln 1870 achapter was founded on the Pacific Coast - the first fraternity in that locality. Zeta Psi was also the pioneer fraternity in Canada, and at present has twenty-nine chapters in the United States and Canada. During the spring and summer of 1944, the life of the Phi Chapter was greatly imperiled because of the number of brothers leaving for the armed forces, but it has since gained strength with an increased number of pledges. At present, the Phi Chapter is in its customarily strong position, with its men actively participating in campus activi- ties. Zeta Psi numbers among its distinguished alumni such nien as Stephen Leacock, the popular writer and humoristg Lincoln Steifens, the well-known journalist and author, George W. Chadwick, the composer, William Comstock, ex-governor of Michigan, Marshall S. Brown, Dean Emeritus of the Faculties of New York Universityg John McCrae, the poet and author of "ln Flanders Fieldng Cedric R. Crowell, theatrical producer, Joe E.
