Memories remain, and when they begin to stumble over a name, to fail in recalling sun- light on stone, there are records to strengthen them. Ticket stubs, cards, tran- script copies, old bulletins, dusty textbooks are only numbers and letters. A yearbook, however, embraces these and includes at least a mention of the intangibles. Scenes are pictured, feelings reported, history is bound: four years of an individual, a collective life are laid down. In that process of graduation, which is the closing of one door and the opening of another, a yearbook is a wedge in the door we have left. Along the strait ways and narrow paths which are adult life, it reminds us of when we were a class and young. It is that small space between the two doors, with the diplomas and robes and other souvenirs of a marked-off time pressed among the pages, to which we can return, although already in a fragile new half-century. If this book stands, our class remains. I . chancellor harry woodburn chase TO THE GRADUATES OF 1950: The advent of the year 1950 found its celebrants in something of a quandary as to whether the century rightly passed its midpoint at that time or is not to do so until a year hence. There is no such question, however, that for you, the Class of 1950, the advent of this year-more especially its midpoint in June- is an occasion meriting special celebration in that it marks one of the maior transitions in your lives. 0 As far as your relations with the University are concerned, the transition is, I suppose, primarily that from student to alumnus, and while little I might say here could any longer affect the former, I should like to risk a few admonitory words on the latter. O Never in the history of American higher education has there been greater need, on the part of the privately controlled colleges and universities, for active alumni support. On the financial level, of course, this need appears in dramatic proportions, but I would not limit the meaning of the word to things purely financial. I mean even more the philosophical, if not moral, conviction of the vital necessity of the privately controlled and supported institutions of higher education to our whole cultural fabric. O As graduates of this University, you will be identified not only with this particular institution, but with the whole tradition of private higher educa- tion. lt will not be enough, therefore, for you merely to become members of the Alumni Association, though certainly this should be an initial step. But if you are convinced, as you should be, of the abiding value of the training which is represented in the degree you are soon to attain, then you should in every way possible insure its continued validity through actively supporting the concept of dynamic educational enterprise which has made American higher education what it is today. Cordially yours, ram, wma.. KN'-we Chancellor. The Chancellor at work in his office on the tenth floor of Main Building at Washington Square. ,ff 1' ff "gli I , 1 ,sf E if 6 - li f if fu- Q.

My If f ,q si ' Hfls L-R. , dean william bush baer TO THE MEMBERS OF THE GRADUATING CLASS: Within a very short time you will be alumni of New York University, and because of your preoccupation with advanced studies or with employment during the first few years after graduation, you will be tempted to forget about your days here. But do not give in to that temptation. A man's association with his college should not end on the day that he receives his degree. The day should mark the beginning of a new kind of association but, I trust, an equally enioyable and valuable one. I speak from personal experience, for I have been to many alumni reunions and class dinners. The enthusiasm which has been evident at these gatherings is genuine, the desire to know "how things are going at the Heights" is sincere. I cannot overemphasize the importance to you of active participation in alumni affairs. 0 It is customary in these uncertain times, I know, to stress the enormous responsibilities we all are facing, yet I am not competent to advise you as to how you should meet them. If, however, you can make even the slightest contribution toward the goal that is in the hearts of everyone, a peaceful world, you may consider your iob well done. And if the training which you received here helps you in this effort, we too shall consider our iob well done. We are sorry to see you go, but we realize that you must be on your way. You leave us with our very best wishes for success in all of your enterprises. !cJ.,La..,l.. K5 lim..

I clean thornclike saville TO THE GRADUATES OF 1950: Never before has this country needed more obiective and analytical thinking on the part of its citizens. You are about to go forth from this campus possessing a University degree which testifies to your competence in some general area of knowledge. Does it also testify to your ability to think clearly and help resolve some of the social, political, and international problems which confront us all as citizens of the greatest democracy? The general courses which you have taken, the habits of thought and study which you have had an oppor- tunity to develop, even the campus bull-sessions, should provide an affirmative answer if you have used your years here to best advantage. But education for citizenship is never completed, nor is it to be nurtured solely by newspaper reading. We have never had on this campus any more serious or able students than those of the Class of 1950. You have been subiected to the same disad- vantages as students elsewhere due to crowded classrooms, temporary housing, and mixed curricula due to war time interruptions. Seasoned as you have been by your experiences since you first registered as freshmen, you have an un- usually solid foundation of abstract knowledge plus hard knocks which go to build character. May you all continue to read and study and analyze to develop sound attributes of good citizenship as well as to improve your professional abilities. We of the faculty have admired your perseverance, we wish you success in your careers, and we welcome you as alumni. Dean, College of Engineering. ormond john drake john warren knedler, ir. The name of every student at the Uni- versity College has passed through the- hands of Ormond J. Drake, who serves the college as Director of Admissions. A Phi Beta Kappa from Michigan, As- sistant Dean Drake also heads the De- partment of Speech and Dramatics at the Heights, where he has been teach- ing since 1936. An expert in the field of public speaking, the Dean is actively engaged as special lecturer to many groups, including among them, Johnson and Johnson and the Ortho Pharmaceu- tical Corporation, both of New Bruns- wick, New Jersey. This year Cornell's School of Industrial and Labor Relations heard a series of eight lectures from Dean Drake on the topic of Communi- cations. The burden of supervising the program- ming that students must complete twice each year falls upon one man in the University College, Assistant Dean John Warren Knedler, Jr. ln addition to his position as Chairman of the Scholarship Committee, Dean Knedler also serves on the curriculum and scholarships com- mittees. An Associate Professor of Eng- lish, he was graduated from Harvard in 1924, and went on with his graduate studies at the same institution, receiv- ing his Master's in 1927 and a doctorate in 1937. During the war he was ap- pointed Associate Professor of Physics, while continuing his English teaching, and later became executive secretary of the former department. Dean Knedler teaches two courses, Modern British Literature, and Shakespeare in alter- nate years. The post of Secretary of the Faculty does not bring its holder, Winthrop Rodgers Ranney, into contact with the student body, but as a Professor of English he is well known to most Heightsmen. Professor Ranney spent his undergraduate days at Dartmouth and went on to take an M.A. at Harvard. ln addition to his faculty duties, he is a member of the Committee on Admissions, the Scholarship Committee, and is also treasurer of the Heights chapter of Phi Beta Kappa. Among the courses he teaches are European Novel, English Novel, and Advanced Composition. winthrop rodgers ranney In 1946 Assistant Professor Alan Coutts, then a Speech instructor, was asked by Dean Baer to assume the position of Director of Student Activities, and since that date he has been actively engaged in student affairs. He originally came to the campus in 1938 and his stay here was interrupted by a three-year term in the Navy, from 1942 to 1945. Since his graduation from Oregon State, he has studied at Northwestern, where he received his Master's, and taught at the Uni- versity of South Dakota and Brooklyn College. He is a winner of the National Playwriting Contest. alan coutts theodore francis jones Books are considered the basis of the formal portion of a student's education to such an extent that the entire curriculum at the University of Chicago is knowledge of the contents of one hundred "great" books. At the Heights, the keeper-of-the-books is Professor Theodore Francis Jones, Director of the Gould Memorial Library. Dr. Jones was graduated from Harvard in 1906 and received his doctorate there four years later. Coming to the campus, he became a history instructor and has risen to his current standing as a full professor. He was named Director in 1922. ln the elementary, in the survey courses they are only figures who stand at one end of a long room and lectwggel When you mgvexup to the advanc,e,d"'E5liJassesEwhen"A 'ue-37l?,9l,!llen an rg,PPff,tMriityVfKto qlzestion its A or answer"'backf,,Ajou Qgdjrout the now more than A4,f on egifuxbiecgifhey have p sonalities, theyfure 'gqy w illin xffililistgehrand help' .

A Heights graduate, Dean Gian- nini took a B.S. in Mechanical Engineer- ing in 1923, and a Master's three years later. Since then the dean has been actively engaged in various positions of service with the College of Engineer- ing, and he holds an associate profes- sorship in the Mechanical Engineering department. Professor Giannini also rose rapidly in the field of administration, serving until 1949 as Executive Assist- ant, and now is the Assistant Dean in charge of the Day Session. In this posi- tion he supervises all academic matters concerning students of the college. ln his long career of service to the Col- lege of Engineering, beginning when he came here from Columbia College in 1917 as a graduate assistant, Pro- fessor Henry James Masson has pio- neered in the advancement of the school. Among his achievements are the founding of the Chemical Engineering department, initiation of a Graduate Division, and responsibility for bringing the two honoraries, Tau Beta Pi and Sigma Xi, to the campus. ln addition to his work as Assistant Dean in charge of the Graduate Division, Professor Masson teaches two graduate courses, Management of Research and Develop- ment and Principles of Research Pro- cedures. Until several years ago, he was in charge of the department which he was instrumental in establishing. At the right hand of the Dean is his Executive Assistant, Commodore Robert E. Robinson, Jr. lUSN, Retiredl. Mainly concerned with the overall administration of the college, Commodore Robinson's work only infre- quently brings him into contact with its students.

While men studied within the separated area of forty-three semirural acres, the world they were to live in was being changed. Sus- picion replaced cooperation and doubt be- came the successor to belief in progress. The K Classics Department Chairman-Professor Albert Billheimer: rx, fllllli, liflili, 'i'Ii.x, ll:-lf, .vlfila Gettysburg College, A.B. 1906, Princeton, A.M. 1910, Ph.D, 1918. last year of the first half of the twentieth century saw an increase in the frequency of disturbances, and that an allusion to a Geiger counter could be drawn to describe this situation, indicates the most important fear and problem facing the country. C lt was an unusual year in many ways. There was the weather, which got itself confused, bringing "dry Thursdays" and colds. Less universal instances of uneasiness were the song revivals and the return to the Twenties for women's fashions, investigations and ac- cusations, the large play given to the extra- marital life of Hollywood stars, rising un- employment and restricted hiring in several fields, a dull year on Broadway, indications of growing religious interest, and extremes in various aspects of social life. 0 Almost everyone had received a lesson in the chem- istry of death. The hydrogen bomb was widely discussed, and although it was de- nounced as a weapon of destruction with unknown possibilities, the world was still building into two armed camps. The future was unexpectedly cloudy, and doubts and fears grew. Not yet a lost generation and determined to live in peace and accustomed security, graduates gave more time to self- analysis and thoughts about their later years in a world they had not made but must continue. I Similar uncertainty with less disastrous consequences, was general some one hundred and twenty years ago. Then, the cause was the accession to the presi- dency of Andrew Jackson, with the control of the nation passing from the aristocratic, landed few to the unprepared masses as a result. O So long as this ruling class re- mained socially and politically ignorant, so long as it could not lead, there was danger. Fear of such a situation provoked public- minded men throughout the country to find means to educate the people. In New York City a group met to lay the foundation of a university whose purpose would be to pro- vide useful and practical education for the now governing elements. A school of liberal arts already existed in New York, devoted to the training of men for the professions, but the new university was planned to serve men who intended to enter business, engi- neering, or architecture, but who lacked the classical background necessary for admission to the universities of the day. U The gene- sis of the university was a meeting held on English Department Chairman-Professor Albert Ste- phens Borgman: flllilfg Michigan, A.B. 1911, Har- vard, A.M. 'l9'l2, Ph.D. 1919. December 30, 1829, presided over by the Reverend James Mathews, who later be- came the first chancellor. The men at the meeting decided to invite leading citizens of New York to a gathering, at which the actual formation of this university would be dis- cussed. At the second session, General Mor- gan Lewis, former governor of New York, 'NN Trees, hedges, and bush.

O An in- teresting innovation was a meeting to discuss the organization of the university, to which such notables as former Secretary of the Treasury Albert Gallatin and Daniel Webster were invited. The control of the university was put in the hands of a council, elected by the shareholders, which in turn would elect a chancellor to serve as executive head of the institution. O Having little more than half of the proposed capital, the University, chartered by the New York State Legislature in April, 1831, opened its gates at Clinton Hall. The initial matriculated class contained one hundred and thirty-eight students, of whom thirty-six received their baccalau- reates. In order to keep the school in opera- tion, the administration faced the problem of raising sufficient funds and the construc- tion of a permanent building. When it was German Department Chairman-Professor Henry Brennecke: IIN, 'l'liK, Columbia College, A.B. 1914, A.M. 1915, New York University, Ph.D. 1926. discovered that Chancellor Mathews had neglected to alleviate the school's financial deficit and that the University was running deeply into debt, he resigned and steps were taken to pay off the obligations. O ln the summer of 1833 the construction of the mar- ble, Gothic-style building which was to be- come the home of NYU, was begun. The structure, of which a contemporary made the ambiguous remark, "I have seen nothing abroad to equal it," was opened in 1835 simultaneously with the creation of the Law School. Although the exterior of the build- ing was impressive, many complaints were fini. ',,,,- Physical Training Department Chairman-Professor Howard G.

Morse, one of the University's first illustrious faculty members, constantly grumbled about his office, which he claimed was "a perfect shower bath with wet walls and smoky chimney." This condition in his quarters, however, did not prevent Professor Morse from developing the telegraph and experi- menting in photography with his colleague, Professor John C. Draper. O Draper, who won his reputation as one of the first scien- tists in the United States by his experiments in radiant energy, also enhanced the repu- tation of NYU, and was a brilliant defender of scientific thought and rationalism. Other members of the faculty included men noted for their achievements in other directions, such as Professor Cyrus Mason, who fre- quently had to lock the doors of his class- room to prevent interruptions by bill collec- tors, the aftermath of his faulty speculations. O In the years following Mathews' ad- ministration, the University followed a seem- ingly placid life disturbed only by minor academic storms, until financial problems came forward once again about 1850.

Under this strain Chan- cellor Frelinghuysen resigned to become president of Rutgers College. 0 The next three years were filled with disappointment and melancholy, as the University Council searched in vain for a replacement. "ln the deepest condition of financial disrepute" as Henry Young threatened to foreclose the mortgage on the building at Washington Square, leaderless and abandoned by most of the Council, the University survived this critical time almost solely through the efforts of Myndert Van Schaick, one of the original founders and a shareholder in the school. He suggested that professors forego their salaries for a short time and that those parts of the building not being used should be rented to obtain money to pay off the in- terest on the debt. With a few loyal sup- porters and the help of the new chancellor, Dr. Isaac Ferris, he organized a campaign to raise funds. By June, 1853, enough money had been accumulated to liquidate financial obligations, with the final S2500 being con- .4 Engineering Mechanics Department Chairman-Pro- fessor of Hydraulics and Mechanics Glen N.

When Chancellor Ferris' administration ended in 1870, the school had an endowment of S175,000. O In the reminiscences of Pro- fessor John Stephenson, delivered in an address at the commencement exercises in 1894, the original idea of a school for the study of practical science was mentioned as being set aside for the more accepted curriculum of classical study. However, be- cause of its renowned faculty, the University occupied a position of prominence in the scientific fields. Outside of the classics and sciences, one man, Professor Martin, "kept himself busy teaching philosophy, ethics, economics, logic, and history, and supervised essay writing and declamations in his spare time." An illustration of its scholastic emi- nence was the establishment at NYU in 1858 of the second Phi Beta Kappa chapter in New York State. O Operations of the Law School also began in 1858, although it was officially inaugurated in 1835. The reason for the late success of the branch was the pre- vailing practice of apprenticeship to a law- yer to learn the profession. A distinguished faculty of recognized lawyers and iudges were hired to teach the one-year course, while textbooks and regular lecture methods were supplemented with mock trials and Mathematics Department Chairman-Professor Hor- ace A.

By 1930 the school had grown to one of high standing in the country, expanding from thirty students in 1859 to twelve hundred and thirty. The post- World War ll expansion of the Law School necessitated construction of a new and larger Law Center, despite the protests of the ten- Music Department Chairman-Professor Alfred M.

Lectures included dogma and theory, and the lecturers were demanding in wide outside reading. The recipient of the medical degree in 1841 was required to have com- pleted two lecture courses and have served three years with an instructor, in addition, he could choose among English, Latin, or French as the language in which to write his medical thesis. U Another medical school developed in connection with the Bellevue Hospital, creating a situation heretofore un- known in the United States-medical stu- dents being given the opportunity of contact with the practical side of the field while simultaneously learning theory. ln 1898 the two medical schools were united under the title of the NYU-Bellevue Medical Center, and according to the terms of the union, all equipment and the buildings of the Bellevue College were transferred to the University, while the staff of the college constituted a large part of the new faculty. The amalga- mation of these two schools, which had maintained an intensive rivalry, into one insti- tution was a great step forward in the cause of education. Since that time, a steady in- crease in the quality of the equipment, and the length and complexity of the curriculum has culminated in a drive for the construc- tion of a modern Medical Center which is expected to rank as one of the finest in the world. The names of Reed, Gorgas, and Goldberger, known even to laymen, are on the roster of graduates of the medical school. O Under the chancellory of Howard Crosby the trend towards specialized and advanced study, leading to enlarged graduate and undergraduate colleges, was furthered. In his inaugural speech Chancellor Crosby said, "lf the university scheme were fulfilled, we should see our students pursuing the higher studies of Language, Philosophy, and Mathe- matics, and following these studies to their remotest lengths in comparative philology, metaphysics, psychology, and literature." Dr. Crosby immediately undertook to increase the endowment and to expand the existing departments of the University. I A distinct scientific course was organized, from which ancient languages were excluded, and new professorships were established in the fields of geology, French, and German. During the winter of 1871-72 the University Chapel be- came the scene of free public lectures at which many leading dignitaries spoke. The bubble of optimism that was built up by this vigorous program was pricked in 1873, when the promises for the increased endowment were found to be no more than promises. C The government bonds held by the Uni- versity were sold in order to make an invest- ment yielding a higher rate of interest, but, in spite of this action, the financial situation 2 M .

Over the energetic protests of the Chancellor, the resolution was adopted, but it did little to ease the difficulties. Conditions deteriorated to such an extent that Chan- cellor Crosby suggested the closing of all schools except the Medical and Law colleges, but with the aid of the faculty, which offered to accept reduced salaries, the University re- Administrative Engineering Department Chairman- Professor Joseph M.

The small size and the conservative policy of the University College, coupled with a lack of laboratory equipment and the small endow- Psychology Department Chairman-Professor Lyle Hicks Lanier: flllilip Vanderbilt, A.B. 1923, A.M. 1924, Peabody, Ph.D. 1926. ment, made NYU distinctly inferior to the leading colleges of the time. This condition of the University College was laid to three main reasons: its presence in the midst of a business section of the city with no campus or athletic facilities, free tuition, and its lack of sectarian connections. Since the formation of the college, the idea of "campus life," which centers around extra-curricular activi- ties and athletic competition, had progressed greatly, so that in 1880 prospective col- legiates rated these as among the most de- sirable features in choosing their school. The fact that NYU maintained free tuition also discouraged wealthy families from enrolling their sons in an institution which they re- garded as being conducted solely for stu- dents of meager financial status. These were the problems that faced the next chancellor, the Reverend John Hall, upon his inaugura- tion in 1881. O Reluctant to assume the duties of a chancellor, Reverend Hall placed most of the work of his office with a newly- appointed professor, Henry MacCracken, for whom the position of Vice-Chancellor was created. His leading influence was soon felt by such advances in the University as the foundation of the coeducational Post-Grad- uate School and the School of Pedagogy, later known as the School of Education, and centralization of the administration of the Law School under the University Council. Vice-Chancellor MacCracken diagnosed the basic faults of the University and attacked these problems by recommending to the Council that NYU establish a closer tie with some sect, perhaps the Presbyterian Church, reinstitute a tuition fee, and find a new site for the University College. In 1891 Mac- Cracken became the official as well as the practical head of NYU. 0 The maior achievement during the early part of Chan- cellor MacCracken's administration was the successful transfer of the University College to its present location in the Bronx. The site chosen was the Horace Mali estate in Ford- ham Heights, but the price was excessively high, and inability to raise the entire pur- chase price forced the Chancellor to settle for only a section of the estate, with options on the remainder. O Plans to move the Gothic structure in Washington Square to the new seat were vetoed when it was discov- ered that it would be cheaper to erect a new Civil Engineering Department Chairman-Professor Robert L.

The noted architect, Stanford White, was secured to design the Library and the Hall of Languages, which were to be built with funds contributed by Jay Gould's daughter, Mrs. Finley J. Shepard.

Student life made its first appearance on the Heights campus in the fall of 1894. 0 While plans were drawn up for the con- struction of the Library and Language Hall, a concrete supporting wall on the west face was found to be essential to the safety of the buildings. The visionary Chancellor Mac- Cracken, who deplored any waste of space or materials, suggested that a colonnade be built, which could be turned into a national shrine-and thus the Hall of Fame for Great Americans became part of University Heights. To date seventy-seven Americans have been honored by inclusion, and elections were to be held in October, 1950. The Colonnade was completed in 1900, but was not officially dedicated until mid-1901, by which time twenty-nine famous men had been chosen under an elaborate electoral procedure. O The University College tried to arrive at a new curriculum, wherein a student might choose a field of specialization and at the same time receive basic instruction in the Electrical Engineering Department Chairman-Pro- fessor Samuel Gross Lutz: HKN, EE, Purdue, B.S.E.E. 1929, M.S. Eng. 1933, Ph.D. 1938. liberal arts. Entering students faced the fixed curriculum for their freshman year of two languages, mathematics, history, geology, biology, and "one hour of rhetorical exer- cises." They were then given their choice among ten fields of study in which to devote the remaining three years. This system allowed the student to choose his field of specialization, but once he had decided on the particular study, he was confined to pre- scribed courses. At this time the entire engi- neering curriculum formed one of the groups offered, and in it there were only five hours a year of applied science. Physical training a semi-rustic suburb, while 'medical prepara- tory students' were still unknown . . . the Heights Campus enioyed an atmosphere of academic calm." O As part of the growing tendency of American colleges to demand more thorough preparation for entrance, the Arts College began to require not only a high school diploma, but a minimum high school program as well. The Medical School History Department Chairman-Professor Joseph Hendershot Park: Columbia, A.B. 1912, A.M. 1913, Ph.D. 1920, Dean, Graduate School of Arts and Science, New York University. was made compulsory for freshmen and sophomores, and the administration con- verted the Mali barn and stable into the first gymnasium. Then NYU expanded its activities offered by entering intercollegiate sports. O The following passage presents an idyllic picture of the early days at the Heights: "During those distant years from 1894 to 1912 . . . while the Bronx was still was also concerned with the poor prepara- tion of its students and the University de- cided to require a year of college work in physics, chemistry, and biology for entrance, and at the same time provided a place in the Heights branch where these courses might be completed.

With this new program, however, the enrolment made a rapid surge from two hundred in 1912 to 550 in 1917. For the first time in its history the Heights was crowded, and all facilities were being used to capacity. O In 1914, after much deliberation, the curri- culum, which had been based upon selection of a group of prescribed studies, was aban- doned in favor of the present system of maior and minor requirements. A most val- uable addition was the creation of a special course leading to honors in the maior sub- iect of the student's choice. With the intro- duction of these honors courses, the Univer- sity recognized that it was its duty to find and develop as far as possible the most brilliant members of each class. 0 Dean Archibald Bouton, who was appointed in the same year, faced the problem of the normal academic balance by the preponderance of freshman pre-medical students and an over- crowded plant. A partial solution to the former problem was found when the medical schools raised their requirements to two years of undergraduate work. The matter of congestion was temporarily alleviated when war caused many students to withdraw. 0 ln order to keep the college in operation, the administration accepted a government Military Science and Tactics Department Chairman- Professor Ernest A. Rudelius, Colonel, Infantry: Uni- versity of Hawaii, B.S. 1931. plan to establish a program whereby stu- dents could continue their academic instruc- tion, and at the same time receive military training. The plan created a great deal of confusion, and often entire classes would be engaged in K. P. at examination time. To this day the Military Science department re- mains on campus as a constant reminder to undergraduates of the army mind and its ingenuity. 0 Facing the difficulty in as- similating students of a foreign background, the administration decided to base admis- sion on personality as well as intellectual ability. The method of interviewing persists today, although the purpose has changed with the disappearance of the original prob- lem. And since the end of World War l, the enrolment of the University College has increased steadily, necessitating the construc- tion of Nichols Hall for chemistry, the use of Butler Hall, and the purchase of former Chancellor MacCracken's house to ease crowded conditions. Time has brought the college distinguished scholastic eminence and a high position among similar institu- tions of liberal arts in the United States. 0 Social Sciences Department Chairman--Professor Ed- ward Conrad Smith: fifltli, 13911, West Virginia, A.B. 1915, Harvard, Ph.D. 1922. The size and importance of the College of Engineering places its almost unnatural be- ginnings as a minor department of the Arts College in sharp contrast with its present standing. Although it was one of the express purposes of the University founders to train men in technical fields, twenty years passed before a regular Professor of Engineering was employed.

O However, the college soon grew out of the stumbling stage and began to assume some of the importance it holds today. By 1865 the college was fairly well organized, and the annual catalogue already sounded like that now familiar theme-overspecialization in technical studies. Later announcements stressed the value of general education, and the curriculum began to show the effects of this demand. Until the turn of the century, civil engineering, with traces of instruction in mechanical engineering, constituted the program offered. ln 1899 these courses, still a section of the University College, were divorced from the parent body and a sep- arate "School of Applied Science" was or- ganized. 0 The engineering school of the Nineties was, of course, smaller than the present. lt consisted of a room on the top floor of the Washington Square building, where one of the preoccupations of students during winter time was to remain in a tem- perate climate by arranging themselves at appropriate distances from a single stove. O Such calm was short-lived, because in 1894, under the proddings of Chancellor MacCracken, the entire University moved to the Heights. From that point onward, the history of the College of Engineering has been one of expansion in physical plant, in the number of students and faculty, in the complexity of courses, and in prominence among American and foreign industries as a training place for engineers. Q The first students to arrive went to work in a series of one-story buildings that were later com- bined into Green Laboratory, which was considered a fire-trap, but obstinately re- fused to burn down. Other buildings were constructed in a slow process, while the plans for building groupings were altered several times. The present campus was com- pleted during the mid-Twenties. During the same period the amount and diversity of the scientific equipment available for use grew. It began with a gift of a Riehle testing machine in 1896 and continued through numerous smaller gifts and purchases to the construction of the fine aeronautical research equipment given to the school in 1925. O Separate departments of Mechanical and Chemical Engineering were established, and more and more work was transferred from Philosophy Department Chairman-Professor William Curtis Swabey: Stanford, A.B. 19155 Cornell, Pl1.D. 1919. the graduate level to the undergraduate, as the century began. Increasing demands for a type of engineer who knew both business and the techniques of industry, resulted in a course developed after 1918 into a special curriculum which involves actual practice in industry, at regular intervals, to supplement the theory taught in classrooms. This pro- gram soon spread to the other branches of study, and by 1925 four hundred students ,,..-sv Aeronautical Engineering Department Chairman- Professor Frederick K.

For example, in 1924-25 the de- partments of Electrical and Aeronautical Engineering were organized out of the broader Mechanical section. 0 No doubt existed that the trend toward concentration brought benefits to students and to industry, but there was a danger that inadaptable, overspecialized graduates might find great difficulty in obtaining iobs. The emphasis on a restricted technical education also tended to produce a graduate who had gone through college without acquiring the breadth of outlook characterizing many Arts students, and an attempt was made to cor- rect this drift by making courses in the hu- manities compulsory. O Dean Charles Snow, an advocate of the value of an engi- neering education, repeatedly attacked the multiplication of subiects and degrees that was proceeding at a rapid rate in the col- lege, feeling "that more time should be given to a study of principles which do not change, and less time to a study of applications which do change." O The birth of the School of Aeronautical Engineering, the first and what was to remain one of the best in its field in the country, was the result of the interest of Professor Bliss in the new science. Q,.'kT fs. -- , W Beginning with a series of special lectures for seniors, aeronautics developed into an option for mechanical engineers in their iunior and senior years. A half-million dollar gift from Daniel Guggenheim for the con- struction of a school of aviation assured a permanent life for Professor Bliss' brainchild. Lindbergh's flight to Paris put aviation in the first rank as the occupation for aspiring young men and registration rose rapidly in the new school. In January the Guggen- heim School completed the first twenty-five years, during which time it has become one of the maior laboratories for aeronautical research. 0 The classic method of research: the cooperation of experts in highly special- ized fields on a problem common to them all, has produced important discoveries. Working on proiects submitted by such lead- ing aircraft corporations as Northrop, Grum- man, and Wright Aeronautical, among others, with exceptional research facilities, worth- while contributions to the development of air brakes, autogyro and propellor design, and soundproofing have been made. Special problems in present-day aviation, such as the investigation of airfoils at supersonic speeds and a study of pulse iet phenomena, the famous "Project Squid," are also being conducted. By these methods the Research Division of the School seeks to fulfill its ex- press aim of "gathering facts about the world we live in and continuing to improve the conditions under which we live." O One of the most interesting developments in the College of Engineering has been the establishment of evening courses. Beginning in 1916, these were organized on a perma- nent basis in 1922 at the Washington Square center. Now many of the subiects are taught at the Heights and the students pursue a six-year course, having to meet the same entrance and diploma certificates as day- time students and receiving identical courses of instruction. O There is no better way to sum up the more recent history of the Engineering College than by a study of the career of its most eminent leader, Dean Snow, who ioined the faculty in 1891, when the school had twenty students and one Eighteen authors, six edu- cators, five theologians, two businessmen, one reformer, seven scientists, two physi- cians, one engineer, four inventors, five military men, four legal minds, six artists, sculptors, and composers, and fifteen statesmen are enshrined in the Hall of Fame for Great Americans. Close to two hundred thou- sand books are housed in the Gould Memorial Li- brary, a design of Stanford White. While the Library steps serve as a meeting- place for many unhoused societies, the interior also contains a post office, the James Arthur clock collec- tion, classrooms, and a tele- phone switchboard. room, and retired in 1930, when some two thousand men learned theory and applica- tion housed in modern buildings equipped with high-grade apparatus. His leadership and ability to mold the faculty and students into a homogeneous group has produced the college of today and a long list of out- standing graduates who are the reward for merit in any educational institution. The in- fluence of Dean Snow can be gauged by this excerpt from the "New York University Alumnus" at the time the dean retired. "How many former students scattered over the world remember with gratitude a helping service or cheering from this advisor of their youth?" Constant improvement and development remain the objects which the College of Engineering administration main- tains, along with a desire to help the student in every possible way. 0 During 1949-50, significant progress was made toward the enlargement of the physical plant at University Heights: the gymnasium was completed after a long campaign, plans were drawn for a Physics building, and stu- '-3-our dent interest grew in a Student Union. In different fields of activity, a student-alumni campaign for improved athletic conditions led Chancellor Chase to appoint an investi- gating committee. Meanwhile, the new foot- ball coach, Hugh Devore, began early spring practice with ninety candidates, but other sports showed signs of collapse, and the need for a liberalized, uniform policy was apparent. U After fifty-six years of Heights existence, students were beginning to make their opinions heard in various ways. Con- ditions in the Commons were improved, re- quests for better-designed undergraduate guidance programs were being considered, and a new system of freshman orientation was started. New interests were reflected in the organization of several societies and it was hoped that WNYU would assume sta- ture. With one half of the century ending, the Class of 1950 left the campus in better shape than when they had arrived, but much remained to be done. Named in honor of Lewis Van Carpenter, professor of sanitary engineering from 1935 until his death in 1940, the southernmost building on campus holds research laboratories for sewage and water work.

On that Wednesday night a fire began, and by the time the blaze was brought under control by the firemen who re- sponded to the two-alarm call, the old building could no longer be used for classrooms. O The last remaining landmark of the Mali estate, the reno- vated mansion had been the residence of the owner when the University bought the Heights property, Charles Butler Hall housed the Physics depart- ment. Classrooms, laboratories and special research rooms, as well as the offices of several faculty members were burnt out. The greatest loss came in the destruction of much equipment, some of it replaceable only at great cost. O For a while the administra- tion was unable to decide on substitute facilities. Offices and research labora- tories were moved into Brown House, courses were disrupted, and some rec- ords were lost. However, the misfortune served to point up more strongly the need for enlarged quarters and the drive for a new Physics building for the engineering quadrangle was in- tensified.

"Habituation is a falling asleep or fatiguing of the sense of time, which explains why young years pass slowly, while later life flings itself faster and faster upon its course.""' But when we sat in a half-dark Chapel, with the shadows longer than they actually were and the seats smaller, on a windy Septem- ber morning in 1946, the four years ahead were granite and our feelings were cold. One boy down front wanted to know how long the Christmas vacation was. The others thought that a premature question and some laughed, but the boy lived in Montana, they heard later, and he had good reason to ask. O Some one hundred of the makings of the largest class in University Heights history already knew each other, gathering at Fresh- man Camp, where they lived together learn- ing the school songs, meeting student leaders, getting used to the idea of college. Most of the Class of 1950 came from New York, many having gone to the same high schools, but they met on different ground. There were friendships to be made in classes, talking, on the subway, in the dormitory. Immediately, there were book lines, class 'Thomas Mann: The Magic Mountain. ..--f-- we 0' . 5. .......... .,.....-- - cards to manage, and the first lectures in a new place. 0 Of the class itself, it was large, with many veterans. lt was a fated class, besides being one of the half-century. We completed our educations, spent our four years between the atom bomb and the hydrogen bomb. We came in and the world looked like peace and prosperity, happiness and plenty. We left with an armaments race and oldtime hazing began to go out when we came in. Enough of us went along with the idea to make the sophomores and seniors happy, went through dissertations on sex from the Library steps, carrying matches for upperclassmen, stooping to suffer the stings of broken oars or orange-crate slats or var- nished maple, storming the mall, singing the school songs on command, and the climax Several gentlemen enioy an after-dance repast with their ladies in a secluded area away from the noise and merri- ment of the dance floor. building, with loyalties being questioned, with a world torn-all at the eve of the end of an era, a half-century and a new one beginning. 0 We had four wonderful years ahead of us when we started, every- thing was open, the campus was ours, even though it meant beanies and paddles for a couple of weeks. We started something there, too. Not all of us were ioe college, 4 of it all: ducking on a hardly warm October evening. It rained. 0 Newly-made sons of the Violet and other accoutrements of the University we chose or had chosen for us, we began to act as a class. There was a false start. Only sixty marked their x'es at the first election, but a more representative number showed up October 24, 1946, a long almost unrememberable way back, to elect Loren Hatch as our president and Norman Jackman, secretary. Many of us learned that Lawrence House was a lounge, with dances on Friday afternoons. Also, the publications had their cubbyholes there, and more than half a hundred began spending their other afternoons in various of them. Fraternities held smokers for us to look in at and maybe ioin, clubs met everywhere and some ioined ter escaped a few fellows, making the class smaller when the grass and leaves surprised the Renaissance buildings with their fresh luxuriance. We scattered for the summer for the first time, but not like leaves. We were Heightsmen and we were a class and we looked forward to the coming years. Things, rooms, and places had meaning. Yes, we were collegiate, and T950 was a year nearer. those, too. We were not "ioiners," particu- larly, but there was nothing wrong with learning things out of class or getting to know people. 0 Along the way that first year we had some good times and some dances. Classes, especially laboratories, took out a lot from each day, but the days seemed to be unusually long. That year ended, as the later ones did, with finals. Subject mat- Several gentlemen en ioy the sweet and en- tire fulfillment of their freshman dreams as they lead an eager lad to chilling happiness. O Came September and we were back: biology for many, with its attendant nights of study and bleary mornings: many point- ing, or driving themselves toward a cozy office with a med school diploma. But not all pre-meds, pre- a lot of things. And many interested because they were moving up- minor officers, minor editors, maybe a stripe or two on a baggy uniform. That vacation had been a good thing: for the Feb-Sept segment of our class it was only a ioke, for the straight-term men it was the first break and it gave them time to look back and look forward and decide on some aims. 0 We were sophomores, with sophomoric Eng- lish, fads, sophomore pranks, and earnest- ness, too. Accidents in the labs, reagents, unknowns and uncareds. They say, over in Gould, one sophomore was hypnotized- and it isn't iust an anecdote-and read the organic chemistry text from cover to cover. He got an A. At least in that exam. Or what about that exam where the fellow stayed up all night studying? He had a good friend, brought him his benzedrine right into the classroom. No record of his grade. 0 Well, we had one more spokesman on Student Council. The last May we elected Thomas O'Brien, Sol Rosenbluth and Irwin Rosenthal Exhibits in the UEC Art Show revealed a wide range of talent, and the models, cast- ings, pottery, photographs, and paintings covered the walls and overflowed onto tables in the Bell Tower lounge, as for a few days the room of chairs ancl noise and study desks looked like a hall in which to relax. -president, secretary and representative, in that order. lWith students eager to get on to graduate schools or business, class lines get tangled, and only the middle one grad- uated '50.l Bare facts are recalled, but each man keeps the other days he remembers. If everything was remembered, why, the im- portant times lose their shine. 0 About halfway through our second year there was a slackening. So the soph year seems the longest, perhaps because campus social and extra-curricular activities weren't as full for us. Graduation was too far off to be the cause, but some spark was left and non-academic Before a Freshman Chapel-perhaps to inspire the first-year students-seven seniors were inducted into Perstare et Praestare and seven men became hon- orary members. Below, alumnus Deems Taylor looks on as Perley Thorne receives his key. memories of that second round are scarce, at least hard to bring back. Facts, again, are found on records, can be looked up. ln May we chose the officers who would serve us as iuniors. William Bocchino, president, and Paul Nonkin, secretary. And representatives Bruce Grund, Irving Litt, Jesse Margolin. 0 About one hundred men, in minor and major positions with organizations and publica- tions, carried the rest of the class, and served as apprentices until the time when they would become the leaders. Disinterest or outside concerns made class activity dip to its lowest point the third year. Lassi- tude, and the record we made for our- selves as iuniors had only one social event setting oFf one night from all the others of studying and off-campus interests. We planned and executed a successful prom, with a name band, a name location, and many names present. We were wrong in wishing that the third year was over, and towards the end political practices became apparent on the parts of several solicitous fellows. We were practicing and preparing, at the end of four years one wonders if that spring practice did not begin too early. 0 The election campaigns of six were re- warded. Lawrence Marcus became president, John Greguoli, secretary. Stanley Blumen- stein, Calvin Leifer, and Howard Lubin took their seats as class representatives, and Don Lichtenberg was back for the second time as NSA delegate. O Seniors already! Very With hundreds watching, cam- pus leaders contributed their faces and societies paid five dollars per pie, as the Heights saw an old-fashioned pie- throwing contest to raise funds in the Student Union drive.

All we really had time for was re- membering, inbetween filling out application blanks and taking examinations that didn't count any more. We were sorry for the mis- takes made: courses chosen poorly, classes cut, meetings missed, campus events un- attended, greater opportunities lost. We looked on the four years soberly: many years lay before us, but that one part we had wanted to make so important and crowded, so meaningful and memorable, tasted flat. 0 One of our activities in the last year tried to erase some of the errors. The Senior Prom was held in the Grand Ballroom of the Waldorf Astoria, a grand, last gesture, on June 9, the weekend before graduation. lt was a dinner-dance and well- attended and enioyable and successful. Then there were Class Night ceremonies, a few hours on a made-over Ohio Field, and it was over, the adventure, for all except those who would return as alumni to grasp at their four years again by means of a visit. 0 No one had called us failures. We weren't attacked in the newspaper or condemned by the faculty. We led the activities well, registering high achievements to be equalled and carrying favorite proiects to completion. Of course we might have done more, but we must rest on our record, having done what was possible. Shouting and rushing around weren't things we did--at least, anymore- and we were amused to see undergraduates so active. We took it slower, '50 was giving long thought to the future. 0 Many had never become part of the Heights. Subway- dwellers and thinkers, they came to college to study-only to study. Always prompt for classes and always quick to leave at the end of the hour, they missed out, but thought they were getting all they paid for. Un- envied by those who would be remembered, they started and remained a name on a card in a recording office. The rest kept their in- terest in the Heights, having given to it more than a twice-yearly check and regular at- 3 l l w l l l :: I: Q'--'Q "g1,.f.. .:l5:.9.. tendance and grudging praise. Athletics concerned them, as well as the academic standing of their college. Proud of their achievement, of their fellows, of their school, there would be pride in their voices when they spoke of the Heights. 0 Recognizing the senior year as a succession of farewells, we took our leave of the campus and the courses and our professors deliberately and with regret. The glamour of being a class always to be called '50 was something worth what preceded that certain June day. .,.,:1',"yj class night EZ !33!35E www The Chapel is not a cold, uncomfortable place now, and robes rustle. The deans and your professors gravely walk down an endless aisle: call them by their first names now. And processions, awards, singing, speeches, and ceremonies: almost the final link is loosened. Looking, listening, applause: 1950 is leav- ing. Hours were spent similarly in this hall before, from a September four years away first: why are the lights so bright? where have they gone with the mem- ories? The answer is under the seats and on the walls and covering the ceiling: laugh at the iokes, cheer your classmates to drive back the echoes, and sing Pali- sades once more. You will remember. The air is cool, the air is always cool after the evening. The campus stretches away in the dream of the night. Leave your dreaming.

That's for good luck, and most of us are a bit afraid that we're going to need it at first. College freshmen: for the veteran it means slipping back into an old routine, for most of us out of high school, it's a completely new experience. You're on your own now. Not too much time to feel exuberant, bewildered, or sorry for yourself. Forty-three acres of semirural cam- pus are explored and seven hundred and fifty freshmen begin going to college. O Classes start, and at the end of the first week you have ten pages of neatly written chem- istry notes. The big red building next to Nichols turns out to be the gym and not a garage. Hazing begins now-and at last the upperclassmen take notice of you. Beanies and black socks appear, songs are learned, and the expected indoctrination of spirit is awaited. Mr. Coutts does his part, warning us to band together for protection against the sophs. We remain uninitiated until, at practically our own request, our backsides are rhythmically massaged through wet pa- iamas and the ducking dance is pronounced a success. O Politicians begin their bud- class of l95l ding careers and we start hearing our first names more often now. "I promise more dances, better food in Commons, better teams, a new gym, true interest in the affairs of our class, and closer cooperation with the United Nations." Dick Epstein is elected presi- dent and Bill Furman becomes the class secretary. 0 The gym is decorated and we dance. The faculty is slowly molding us into obiective public speakers and obiective writ- ers. ln the chem lab, the true character of our fellow students is shown. Solutions are spiked and the H25 iet is left open. Some- body begins talking about med school. The more observant ones among us now can even recognize the difference between an Artsman and an Engineer. Conscious of our elite position in New York University, we now carefully say, "I go to NYU-the Heights" 0 Our first set of final exams are taken and here and there empty seats appear in various classes. At the same time, the reenforcements arrive. Two hundred and fifty Feb-Septs appear on the scene, and the freshmen of six months smile benevolently. O The gloss and the newness begins to paul marks 0 secretary ,gl L '7 'Q AW T x X 1 -5 "-! .ir- ' ' A' wear off and the experience of college sud- denly turns into a routine. Talent again raises its ugly head and the Class of '51 produces Freshman Follies. Afterwards dates are taken up to Battery Hill, as romance blooms in the shadow of the thick smoke from the Con- solidated Edison soot factory. O Secret pow-wows in Gould Hall and the second appearance of petitions on the campus tell us that we have to elect another slate of officers. This time we get "Movin' with Kuvin for Soph Sec." Epstein is still on the throne. Bassan and Witte look like two good names on the ballot and they are elected class A-...,, representatives. 0 ln the meantime we have long since been thoroughly indoctri- nated with the subiect quaintly entitled Mili- tary Conduct and Discipline. All we have to remember is to forget to think while on parade and to follow commands diligently. Some men are promoted to corporals and undergo all sorts of abuse from their fellows. Two husky specimens pass out while watch- ing a first aid film, and students walking by the Old Engineering Building have to watch out for flying shrapnel. The big parade is rained out and two yardbirds are injured climbing out of the Chapel windows when the concluding services are transferred in- doors. Most of us hand in uniforms, while the Feb-Septs apply to Joe for sun tans. 0 As freshmen we also win the well-deserved reputation as the outstanding and most spirited class on the campus, and with that honor goes the awarding of the University Bun. The iuniors of that year resent being left out of consideration, so, again observing a traditional practice followed at the Heights, they set up a crafty plan to filch the sacred obiect from its true possessors. Despite loyalty checks and strict security measures of all kinds, the forty-niners succeed in carrying out their underhanded mission and steal the Wtibree X What's happened? Where's the bookstore? Where's the lounge? Where're the lockers? And why aren't the campus policemen more careful in guarding the gym? A quick look at the amateur sidewalk superintendents and the budding Civil Engineers standing next to Nichols with their tongues hanging out, re- assures us that the millenium or a reasonable facsimile has finally arrived. At last a new gym. All they need is a little steel. No need to enroll for attractive dynamic tension courses. Everybody begins working out his own muscle building schedule, and the representatives: iay klein stuart nelson david sterling silver box and the precious bun that it con- tains only a few minutes after it had been presented to the Class of '51 by the graduat- ing seniors during their Class Day exercises in June of 1948. Checking all leaks and following down all possible leads as to the whereabouts of the stolen property, agents finally discovered the bun a few months later and iust as handily as it had left their pos- session, again restore the Bun to its assigned place, this time making sure to keep it until time for graduation rolls around. O Four months of vacation. Nothing to do but relax in the sun or make money. The rest of us sweat it out at drawing boards and over bunsen burners back at school. There are a few casualties along the way and the class roster is whittled down. I We're back. Full-fledged sophomores now. Just wait till those freshmen try to assert themselves. Heights Daily News has to begin looking for some other subiect to fill its editorial columns. O Now it's our chance to revive our injured egos after the humiliation we endured in order to become genuine Heightsmen. The word goes around to get the frosh as they come out of Chapel. Much easier that way. We'll take care of them one by one as they come through the door. Somehow it seems as if the revolving door has given those meek little freshmen an extra push, or else their morning Wheaties have been fortified with Mexican iumping beans. Well, wait until we get them on Ohio Field for a tug-of-war. Those ungrateful wretches will eat mud. One thing we have to teach them is school spirit, and that goo that substitutes for a football field will give them proper respect. With the help of assorted upperclassmen the frosh become respectful, but someone timidly inti- mates that perhaps different tactics should be used to imbue incoming students with a satisfactory amount of school spirit. The heads come together and iust like it says in the Boy Scout Manual, sparks fly, and out comes a plan called frosh orientation-Skull and Bones goes underground. O An insti- tution at the Heights, the long basketball lines, which sentimental oldtimers will recall once reached halfway around Nichols, seems to be a thing of the past. The more cynical among us let forth with their best snickers. City College, though, proves to these un- speakably unsportsmanlike ones that we are still interested in our teams, win or lose, and the Class of '51 sees a good team win a good game. We take the Garden and the NIT officials by storm, and along with "12 Texans" we find ourselves in the post-season playoffs. 0 A man from the ranks of '51 is seen reading a certain magazine, which for the sake of propriety shall remain name- less and hereafter be known only as Medley. A dean notices that his tongue is hanging out and that he is panting hungrily. Investi- gations follow, heads roll, and there is one less publication fighting for an appropriation from Student Council. 0 A walk through the Hall of Fame must be inspiring, because some men of '51 begin to be known on cam- pus. Milt Berkowitz cagily gets a job in the Library and begins his campaign for class president by stamping every book "A vote for M. B. is a vote for good government." Why should so many people want the same iob? Whatever the answer is, democracy and the laws of chance tell us that for the next year Milt Berkowitz, Jay Klein, Dave Sterling, Stu Nelson, and Paul Marks will sit in on the Thursday night Beer and Pretzels Club as representatives of the iunior class. Other juniors who will help to take away as many of the pretzels as they can, are Bob Witte, who becomes the first iunior to be elected secretary of Student Council, and Gideon Cashman, as NSA delegate. O Most of us never realized that two years could go by so fast. The last day of Milly Sci and the end of a universal obiect of conversation and iokes. It could be worse though, think of what would happen if they ever put lights Berkowitz hands football co-captain Joe Novotny a trophy at the pre-City rally. The charm worked. in the Library? Somebody must have been holding a magic lantern when we said that, because after four more months of anxiously waiting to get back to school and the Heights once again, we begin our iunior year by dis- covering what the inside of the Library really looks like. lf you gaze closely, you can even see that funny writing on the wall. 0 Con- trary to the excitement which usually grips a football-minded college campus during the fall months, our semirural reservation remained in a comparative state of docility while our team dismally lost one game after the other, with the vigorous students com- plaining quite vociferously, and even going so far as to proceed in a surprisingly well- attended march on the A. A. oltice and the helpless otticials who had their desks there. Also punctuating the autumn doldrums was a nocturnal visit to the Heights by some chil- dren from City College, who displayed their misplaced artistic ability in painting the campus with anemic-looking lavender paint. Perhaps those acts had some stimulating i -S. s 0 M' M-M-smwrw sf'-mg-'mm-M-' ffmmnsifwwf- ---sown effect on the athletic officials, because they then gave us Coach Hugh Devore, who might be able to give the men of '51 a senior year to remember. Maybe. O After these events had become dry topics for conversation we turned anxious eyes to the sky and to the weather reports. Let's have some snow for a good slushy snowball fight with the sopho- mores. The weather, however, gave us no bigger chance for a rustic conflict than an old-fashioned daisy pulling contest. Well, there always could be a blizzard in March or April. And again it happened. Just when we got used to the idea of a snowless win- ter, the snows and the cold and the slushes came. We were too busy drying our shoes to think about throwing iceballs around. Besides, by waiting, spring would come around. We waited, it came. Just about this time we could see the gym was just about completed. Some sociology major, though, knowing that we must have a common strong motivation if we are to stick together, pro- posed a Student Union fund drive, and but- . 1 .I tons blossomed on our lapels. I "On with the dance, let joy be unconfined." That's what the man said, and a group of weary juniors trudge around New York looking for a likely joint to dance in. The Astor Roof seems to be a fairly convenient place, so why be fussy? About two hundred and fifty so- cially prominent Heightsmen pay their five dollars and eat, drink and dance to the music of the Teddy Wilson Trio and Gene Williams and his orchestra. It really is an enjoyable evening, and the more pensive begin to think the last three years had some purpose in them after all. O Now there's only one more to go. Thirty-two more weeks of routine which strangely have come to mean more than just classes, homework and exams. All the practiced cynics begin their ridicule anew, but it is hard for most of us to face the fact that the end of this phase in our lives is in too clear a view. Still, there is one more year left, and we plan to handle that one just a bit more carefully and wist- fully than the three recorded here. , . . f 5 2.x - . H prepare for those finals. , .

Changes had taken place in the original plans, but the general idea had been retained- a gymnasium to meet the needs of the Heights. The renovated building was not easy to come by, the campaign dragging on for nineteen years. During 'I947-48, and the next year intermit- ently, the Heights Daily News put on an individual drive to spur the adminis- tration to action. Taunting, pleading, demanding editorials, and the ever- present "architect's conception of the new gym" had their effect. Materials shortages, bad weather for working, a cave-in that brought police and firemen and the press to our campus, and un- accountable delays kept progress on the structure at a crawl, the seniors thought. Begun in the spring of 1948, work went on through spring of 1950. Slowly, slowly it developed. The John Quigley Memo- rial Swimming Pool and the rest of the new gymnasium was completed too late for the seniors, but at least their efforts had won an increase in facilities for those remaining behind. the new 9Ym Anon out of the earth a fabric huge Rose like an exhalation, with the sound Of dulcet symphonies and voices sweet. -Paradise Los It becomes wearisome conslanfly to watch the arch of heaven. -Virgil: Aeneid 'VV1 5 l f X g . .

Plaulus: Mosfellaria class of l952 They had picked up the first card and every- one had called it an ace-the Class of '52 was born in glory. When Professor Alan Coutts heard that the freshmen wanted to run a formal dance, he sagely pointed to the records of the school which had a card filled only with abortive attempts in this sphere. On May 6, 1949, however, the fresh- men, in their tuxedoes, smiled as they left the Hotel Westover after the "first successful Frosh Prom in the history of the Heights." O Proud in their new status as sophomores, they returned to the campus as old-timers do, only to find the upperclassmen still look- ing down at them. It was a funny feeling when the soph found out that the fellow next to him had gone to classes during the summer. One man remarked: "I saw the Feb- Septs around, but I never dreamt they would be in the same class as me. But I guess it's all right, they seem to be pretty regular." Extra seats were beingfilled by those who were in a hurry to get through, but there also were the empty seats of those who felt that the grind wasn't worth it, and had left the Heights. O The first meeting of the Sophomore Social Council was the closest thing to a religious revival meeting that had ever graced a campus hall. A few of the michael kleinman 0 secretary stuart iackson 0 president aces were new, but not many, and the boys that ran the freshman class set to work on the second installment of "the best years of their lives." Once again the head man was the ex-GI, Stuart Jackson, whose most am- biguous, but most successful slogan, "I know what you want, 'cause I want it, too," was instrumental in returning him to the presi- dency. Of course, no one felt that the girls who had carried placards for him in the May election campaign had hurt his chances at all. 0 Next to the president stand the other representatives of the class in student gov- ernment. Here the faces were new, with Michael Kleinman replacing another Engi- neer, Dan Rubinstein, at the iob of handling the class correspondence, while the two soph reps on Council were James White and Paul Sirop. Robert Getz was a repeater, in a way. Last year an alternate appointee, he was elected a fully accredited National Student Association delegate. As before, Martin Klemes, the social chairman, had prepared a long list of dances for the eight months ahead of '52, and Ronald Ruskin' had al- ready sold a half-dozen bids to the prom. O Optimism was the order of the day as the group reminisced about their past experi- ences and planned for new successes. The freshman year had been one filled with thrills, new activities, and fulfilled hopes. Now they were experts in the gentle art of promoting sound socials, but it had taken them time to learn. 0 Fortunately, the Class of 1949 had been their teachers. The pupils responded quickly, and a Beat-Ford- ham Rally and Dance opened the season back in the hazy days of 1948. C For the traditional Frosh Follies, Life was good enough to furnish, innocently, a gratis theme for the leading skit. ln a particular issue, in the fall ready to assume their roles in the standard hazing program. But fate, or some other less worthy agent, denied them the sweet taste of revenge, and the carefully- sanded oars and barrel staves were stowed away in the hope of days when spirited hazers would not be characterized as "goon squads." However, there was no shortage of sophomores to help with the planning and execution of the substituted indoctrina- a one-sided article remarked on NYU as an institution with "students who eat hot pas- trami sandwiches, and whose road of life is measured along the Eighth Avenue sub- way." That's all we needed! 0 When the end of the year came around, the efforts of the class were recognized by the seniors, their old mentors, and the University Bun, prized pawn of interclass rivalry, became the property of '52, 0 With the Bun safely tucked away from grasping hands, the fresh- men transformed into sophomores appeared tion program. The memory of the fiasco through which they had blushed made them determined to rectify whatever errors they could, and the hazing masters, both semes- ters, were grateful for the aid that came from the class-not just clever class politicos, but the regular subway Heightsmen. 0 The erratic Fresh Print, now called Soph Lines, in commemoration of finals and another check to the Bursar's Office, continued its peculiar circulation schedule under the co- editorship of Harvey Bezahler and Bob Getz. The editors and the small-but-willing stat? enjoyed pointing out to anyone who would listen, that their paper was the most unpredictable in the entire realm of journal- ism: no one knew when it would appear and no one knew what it was going to say. 0 A "new innovation," which had already become the redundant byword for the Class of T952 in the pages of the campus daily, was applied to one affair held. This event, a so-called "Halloween Hop," was iointly sponsored as a stag dance by the sophomore classes of Hunter and the Heights, and opened the social year for both colleges. Both groups were delighted with the out- come. For the Hunterites it meant the capi- tal for their formal, and for the Heightsmen another evening to record in their memory books. O Characterized by various weird antics, the Hop iammed over seven hundred people into the Commons. Quaigh chose "Miss Beast," who turned out to be a Pali- sade soph, while two faculty members picked the "girl they would most like to beWitched by." The quacks of Quaigh also honored one poor girl with a door prize, and put her in quite a spot when she tried to take it home-a door is a bulky thing for anyone to carry around, even a Hunter girl. 0 After this early spurt, the meetings of the class council became less frequent, the cry for socials died down, and a lethargy spread over the class. A few students started blast- ing their administration and claimed it was the business of the officers to get affairs go- ing. However, it was easily seen that, while representatives: paul sirop iames white no whitewash could be applied, the ofticers were helpless in their efforts without sup- port and cooperation. 0 No one could tell whether " a crowded social calendar" was rationalization and not excuse, but it was obvious that an old story was being re- enacted. lt seemed that rah! rah! and the Heights iust didn't go together. Perhaps the appropriate answer was found by the soph in his simple remark: "lt's rough keeping your place in this professional rat race." 0 Like flowers, '52 remained still in their protective coverings through the cold months, when biology, English literature, mechanics, integral calculus, physics, and a host of other "weed 'em out" courses kept them busy. But, again like flowers, when the first stir- rings of spring were felt, '52 reappeared. O Even during the lean months, when there was a marked absence of the unified class, individual sophomores were found laying W7 X P Hardly the work of a master silversmith, the University Bun is still a "prized pawn of interclass rivalry," and a Heights class must have considerable activity to win it. The award is made by the seniors at their Class Night cere- monies, and a class president cannot help but feel proud and more than proud as he receives the Bun. This year the symbol of that desired level of class unity and campus interest rested in the hands of the sophomores. the groundwork to support all the others. Alan Josephson added another first on the class scroll by being elected to Green Room, the dramatics honorary, Carl Radin found himself at the head of a completely underclass executive board in charge of the Central House Plan Association, a large num- ber had ioined the publications, and of them, Harold Gal and Harvey Bezahler were as- sistant news editors on the Heights Daily News. 0 For the second time the main event of the year was the semi-formal. Jok- ingly named the Soph Red Rose Cotillion, no one ever did find out who was supposed to wear the roses. The affair was held in the Della Robbia Room of the Hotel Vanderbilt on a Friday evening in mid-April. Class feel- ing appeared in favor of the dance, but the usual expenses of a formal proved a deter- ring factor. To counter this, the Soph Council decided to subsidize each couple's ticket cost by twenty per cent. I A high spot of the evening was provided by Robert Q. Lewis, popular TV and radio star, who entertained the dancers with several witty monologues. It was his quick, sharp, but subtle humor that won him the plaudits of the class in the form of a loving cup as the "outstand- ing young comedian." The only major com- plaint came from the girls who were an- noyed with their dates' paying so much attention to Les Elgarte's friendly vocalist, Jane Hamiton. But a fellow had only to flip through the sixteen-page souvenir booklet and point to his companion's name printed in bold type as "his girl." O Plans the social committee had made for a Mall Ball were dropped when Student Council decided to turn the affair over to the lnterfraternity Council, which ran a dance for the Heart Fund. This sudden change in the schedule left the Class of 1952 out of the official social calendar for the rest of the short spring semester. However, the boys made a few attempts at off-campus gatherings, none of which proved successful. 0 At the bi- weekly Thursday meetings of the coordinat- ing body, a very secret scheme for a mystery bus ride was drawn up. No one obiected to the destination being kept unknown, but it did seem a bit silly to do the same for the starting point. Fears that sophs would be too confused to show up caused this idea to be scrapped, in that form at least. Another suggestion, that of a stag beer party for the class, was carefully worked over and the group decided that it was better to hold such an event in reserve for either their junior or senior year. 0 The intramural athletic program did not lack entries from '52, as representatives of the class were found at the top in all competitions. As frosh, a bas- ketball team reached a three-way tie for "Music remains the only art. . . wherein originality may reveal itself in the face of fools and not pierce their mental opacity."-James Huneker honors, but bowed to a more polished senior quintet. In '49-'50, though, they placed well in an extensive intramurals program, two of the three medals in ping pong being added to sophomore keychains. A unifying spirit was a missing factor in their second year, so the class did not floor an official squad, but rather let the sophs play with any club or organization. 0 Aversion to the point of impoliteness was exhibited by the class against the required Chapel ses- sions. Reactions were favorable to the more timely talks and the more interesting speak- ers, especially a Princeton professor who spoke on the Bible. One woman lecturer understood their feelings. She cut her ad- dress short, probably realizing that the meet- ing-time was the only lunch hour most had during the day. In what was generally agreed to be one of the more enioyable Chapels, '52 gave a truly rousing ovation to a Glee Club program iust before the Christmas recess. 0 Competition, unfortu- nately, was the keynote of the year, as both Artsmen and Engineers realized the impor- tance of grades. As much as they tried to feel and believe that college was more than iust classes, it was difficult to cut through the maze of professional propaganda to reach the desirable balance. Every quiz seemed to hold the student's future balanc- il ing on the outcome, and none could see that as an envigorating atmosphere in which to work. O The bright spot was the genial and understanding nature of the men who taught the organic chemistry course, and this subiect practically singlehandedly made most of the class-on the Arts side of the campus -think that there was something to work for in college. Nevertheless, '52 worked, and the year passed rather quickly. When the final exam schedule was posted, one student ww, "Architecture is preeminently the art of significant forms in space-that is, forms significant of their functions."-Claude Bragdon was heard to remark, "Heck, I'm iust getting settled to start work. There is something mighty funny about these years the way they disappear." 0 But the year was over and that was that. Transcripts were as good as in the mails, and also the familiar tuition bills for the next time around. '52 was now to become an upperclass, and the words had a magical ring as the boys walked down the steps on their way home. The faces around them were well-known and friendly. Some had become fraternity men, some had ioined houseplans, while others followed the life of the independent student. Most important, they thought, were the classmates they had met, and the friendships. O lt was a year that was alloyed: considerable suc- cess mixed with a fair share of disappoint- ment. But there had been enough accom- plished, enough activity crammed into a very short time, to make '52 think it had pulled a second ace. Anyway, what did the failures matter? They had learned something, they were still a class, and they could say: "You know what? l like it." gould hall society 0 aubrey sher, president r r Aw '-A gould dorm The room that never wus: u promotional stunt by the udminisfrcriion.

'Ha y henry oswald 0 president None of us will disagree with the assertion that the Class of 1953 was a motley bunch when we first presented ourselves on the Heights campus. Just a few months before we had experienced the climax of a four- year high school loyalty which had instructed us only in the various idiosyncrasies of each secondary school. Even if every one of us was willing to be molded or caioled into the status of freshmen, it was not going to be easy to control the blending process so that the product would be of sufficient rich- ness to meet the standards which had al- ready been arbitrarily set up for us. O We were to be welcomed at the campus by a select group of students and faculty, who were going to indoctrinate us into the unique college culture of NYU-Uptown. The invita- tion sounded a bit ominous. Or perhaps an involuntary feeling of apprehension was felt by many of us when we received the call to appear at the Heights on the two days be- fore classes were to begin. 0 Conditioned to the conventional idea of hazing through the media of "Tom Brown's Schooldays" and the movies, we fully expected to receive a form of treatment which would properly demonstrate to us our position in the hier- archy of college organization. We were met, however, with nothing more ferocious-look- ing than a smiling upperclassman. He was class of i953 there, as we soon found out, to serve us. With this initial shock scored on our brains, we were ready, after a respite in the Chapel, for a tour of the campus. We saw all the buildings, and did not even know enough to shudder a bit and hold our breaths as we passed the fuming labs of Nichols. A pure and simple act of mercy was tendered when our guides permitted us to eat in the cafeteria. I The meal was appetizing, and most of us were somewhat puzzled by the curious motto, "Ptomaine Hall," carved into one of the pillars among the hearts and flowers and initials. Later speculation, as we began the hikes again, exposed the fear that perhaps we were now only passing through the fattening process, and the con- sideration being shown to us now would be taken back at the right time in some fiendish manner we were unable to imagine. O After this instruction, which was appar- ently designed to acquaint us with student organizations, extra-curricular activities, and forty-three acres of semirural campus, we were introduced to representatives of the Greek letter societies on the second day. We were ready for this introduction, having been refreshed by a sunlit picnic luncheon on the Mall. O The preliminary period was over, burton kagen 0 secretary myron nobler 0 representative X K fx 5, 1, JM rf, il? K C , Q C . f V , L A mx ,ztiafly ,QU X wh L , and though we now knew what was in store for us, the feeling that we had still not been actual students was very much within us. Lectures and the much talked-about labora- tory work were then simple, uncolorful para- graphs in the catalogue. Well, Monday would let us know if these slight qualms had any basis. "lt can't be too difficult," the more confident among us said, nevertheless, the first day of classes was something we looked forward to with more than a trace of excitement. I Monday came and the much-glorified experience of going to college was on. We were freshmen again, after four years, and ready to take on anything that confronted us. Strangely enough, most of the upperclassmen--even sophomores-ignored us that first day, and the students who had been so solicitous to us during the past week were now going around the campus almost oblivious of our presence. To our surprise, we soon discovered that the beanie was the only insignia which distinguished us from the other men on campus. At a loss to ac- count for this behavior at first, the second day of labs and lectures reassured us that the Class of 1953 was not an unknown entity. O According to the announcement in the Heights Daily News, we were sup- posed to gather on the Library steps and, in our best tenor and basso profundo voices, give forth with the melodious strains of the various school songs. We were then sur- prised by the sizeable number of seemingly amazed Heightsmen who turned up to gape at and listen critically to our antics. Gaining encouragement from our new-found drawing power, we soon were carried away by our own abilities. Although any Metropolitan Opera scout in the mob may not have been too impressed by our collective rendition, we were enioying ourselves, and we received a benevolent nod of approval from our Haz- ing Masters, Messrs, Witte and Marks. 0 Becoming a bit cocky and perhaps a little rambunctious after our successful hazing Not too fast . . . you're slowing up . . . tug . . ." -Jackson and Ruskin inspire freshmen. debut, we turned out on Ohio Field for what we were told was a traditional event. lt seems that the sophs were intent on pulling us off our feet in a tug-of-war, and thereby demonstrating to us in this forcible manner our relative position as far as second-year men were concerned. However, the bookies took a beating that day, with one unified heave we pulled the helpless sophs off their own feet, and the rooting section peering out of Nichols gazed in amazement at the unexpected reversal. O During this time some of us discovered that an insidious secret police was in operation. These snoop- ers would approach us, and if our beanies or Palisades Handbooks had been left at home with our lunch on that particular day, the penalty would have to be worked off by a solo performance of Palisades from the entrance to the Mall. We became more cau- tious as the grapevine passed along the in- formation concerning these professional tor- mentors. I Meanwhile, Professor Coutts was busily stirring the ambitions of the more politically minded among us. These men were offered the handy excuse of being able to do something for their class, and in de- clarations which sounded peculiarly similar, these embryo politicians--most of whom were pre-meds-brought out a large num- ber of us in the voting. Henry Oswald was chosen class prexy, and the positions of secretary and representative went to Burton Kagen and Myron Nobler, respectively. 0 With our mouthpieces firmly implanted in Student Council, somebody mentioned the Ducking Dance, and a search for novel pat- terns in paiamas was on. The upperclass- men, who except for the more muscular members of the hazing committee had seen little action in "Operation Orientation," now sported a playful glint in their eyes when they passed us, in our beanie-complemented outfits. The more helpful of our comrades in the upper classes advised us to provide our posteriors with padding, and extra layers of absorptive material were hastily sewn into the seats of the flashy nightwear. 0 Quaigh attended the big affair, providing the spur for a group of paddle-carrying seniors. Some obscure editor of Life sent a photo- grapher and a sob sister to record our bap- tism, and they immortalized a few members of our class in the pages of that weekly. Anti-histamine addicts and those among us with tender external anatomies had a diffi- cult experience that night, but ignoring these few mishaps, we came out of the famous trough bona fide Heightsmen-and the label of freshman no longer set us off from the rest of the student body. O Now com- pletely equipped to take care of ourselves, we set about to implement the plans which had been so ably expounded by Hank and his cohorts. One of our brighter fellows de- cided it would be nice to know the opinion of the class on the course we should follow. As a result, the boys instituted a system of polling at the weekly Chapels so that each of us could have a voice in class affairs. The disappointed politicos got together and the Freshman Council was formed. They placated our iournalistic comrades and added '53 Skidoo to the list of publications at the Heights. In case you forget, we also spon- Frosh Council for discussing socials, uniting the class, and attracting attention.

The unwritten commandment, which reads, "You'd better gripe about milly sci or else," was dutifully followed by our ranks. Lucky coins were purchased by many to complete the kits we received for the analysis of un- knowns we did not care to find out about. Drawing boards were carried back and forth, and engineers came to be recognizable by their T-squares and ever-ready slide rules. O These influences, both of the formal and informal type, had hardly taken their full effect on us, when we were turned into an unofficial welcoming committee for two hun- dred and fifty Feb-Septs. More pitiless men in our class dusted oFf their high and mighty airs, and prepared to give the newcomers a little reception of their own. However, forti- fied with a streamlined indoctrination, which by this time had reached a good degree of efficiency and efficacy, our reinforcements were provided with their share of song-sing- ing, rope-pulling, and beanie-wearing. 0 The end of the first semester did more than give us a chance to look ahead to those Feb- Sept additions, though.

We had already forgotten a lot of things the deans and those professors told us to be sure to remember. ln fact, the material covered in the first month of lectures was beginning to slip away from us, but we were certain to meet it again in some "advanced" course. Still, we thought about 1949 while we were indoctrinating. 0 Any impromptu hostility which had been waged was now declared to be at an end, and we joined forces to carry out a desiccated edition of a ducking dance, with a cere- monial burning of that symbol of servility, the too-often mentioned beanie. Alas, it was not to be. Ill-timed and persistent drizzles slowly fizzled out any chance for the destruc- tion of those now-odious felt caps. 0 Hope for a tradition of a pleasanter sort, the Freshman Follies, also fizzled out through the combination of several unfortunate inci- dents. But our eagerness to demonstrate our talents was not to be denied. Folklore was tapped as a source of inspiration for the social-minded, and Cinderella, minus her pumpkin and mice, furnished the spark for a modern ball named after her.

O In their junior years, Mathew Foner, Eugene Jones, and Allen Weisse were elected to carry on the society as seniors. After students had been accepted early in the fall semester, the election of officers was held. Weisse became president, Jones the vice-president, and Foner was chosen to act as secretary. Steven Frimmer, Marvin Gelman, Yale Kamisar, Stanley Lesser, Don Lichtenberg, Jesse Margolin, and Gilbert Sheinbaum were the new mem- bers selected, all from the Class of 1950. O Shortly thereafter, seven men were named honorary members, and they received their keys along with the students at a Chapel ceremony on December 6. Professors Alvin C. Busse, Alfred M. Greenfield, Winthrop R. Ranney, Perley L. Thorne, and Douglas S. Trow- bridge, alumnus Deems Taylor, and Coach Emil Von Elling were added to the list of those so distinguished. 0 At the final election, in the spring, two seniors and five iuniors were selected: Alan Breslau and William Bocchino, both Engi- neers to be graduated in June, and Maurice Bassan, Gideon Cashman, William Furman, R.

The Beta chapter was established at University College of New York University in 1858, upon the petition of fourteen members to Alpha chapter of New York at Union College. Thus the Heights group is the second oldest in the state and the fifteenth in the nation to be chartered. O Late in March active members of the chapter elect a number of qualified iuniors and seniors on the basis of academic excellence and high character. This year, because of the decision to revert to the pre-war system of yearly grades, a second election admitted additional seniors and undergraduates in June. Regularly in June, on Alumni Day, officers of the chapter are elected from among faculty mem- bers of Phi Beta Kappa, and these men serve for a term of one year. C Pro- fessor Harry G. Lindwall was president, while Professors Robert A. Fowkes, Richard D. Mallery and Winthrop R. Ranney served as vice-president, secretary and treasurer, respectively. 0 Harold Bernanke, Yale Kamisar, and Richard Krasnow were elected to Phi Beta Kappa in their iunior years. Chosen in March were: Eugene Antelis, Herbert Ausubel, Leonard Barkin, Sheldon Berger, Berman Berkowitz, Seymour Bradus, Stanley Burrows, Randolph Chase, Jerry Edelman, Alvin Gelb, Melvin Goldberg, Arthur Karmen, Leonard Kedson, Alan Latman, Frederic Lehman, Don Lichtenberg, John Nagel, Jack Offenbach, Elliott Raskin, Richard Schain, Robert Silber, Joel Solomon, Robert Weingarten, Jerome Wein- roth, Russell Weintraub, and Alan Wilde. tau beta pi High scholastic standing and excellent character earn iuniors and seniors in the College of Engineering admission to Tau Beta Pi. This national honorary was founded at Lehigh University in 1885 and Epsilon of New York came to the Heights in 1931. Membership is the ultimate distinction that can be given any student in any of the fields of engineering. O Elections are held twice yearly by the members with the advice of a faculty board of Professors F. L. Singer, E. A. Salma, Harold Torgerson, and H. Cozzens. 0 Omcers were: Fred Reibert, president, John Greenfield, vice-president, Gray Smith, secretary, and Franklin White, cataloger. Receiving keys were: Joseph Adams, Edmond Attianese, George Bachman, Kenneth Beckman, Eliot Belitsky, Gilbert Ben-Haroche, Joseph Bernstein, Stanley Blumenstein, Joseph Bodow, Eugene Boronow, William Clark, Arthur Cushing, lgnazio D'Agati, Richard Devaney, Norman Dieter, Louis Dough- erty, David Duncan, Richard Ebbets, Charles Ellis, Beniamin Feldman, Herman Fialkov, Ronald Finkler, William Fisk, Kenneth Foreman, Ira Garfunkel, Milton Gerber, Rino Godino, Seymour Goldstein, Stanley Goldstein, William Green- baum, Stanley Greenfield, Peter Griffith, Fred Hayos, Walter Hermes, Francis Jarmuz, Eugene Jones, Henry Kammenzind, John Kinney, William Kirk, Irving Klothen, Paul Kluger, Fred Krellen, Fred Lafer, Walter Lechner, Paul Levi, Edward Levin, Alfred Lidle, Elmer Lind, Lester Lipkind, Roy Lopresti, Warren Lubin, R.

O Candidates must have a minimum eighty-five general average and ninety per cent in political science courses, along with assurance that they are or will study further in that department. Elections are held twice yearly, selection being by majority vote of a quorum of the whole, and the next year's officers are chosen by the current membership in May. O During the first semester the society dealt with the question of federal world government, hear- ing lectures and holding seminar discussions on political, economic, and social aspects of the topic. In the fall term, the same method was used in an analysis of the basic civil rights-freedom of speech and of assembly-and the restric- tions imposed upon them by different levels of American government. 0 Ed- ward Sadowsky was president, Jerome Tartasky, vice-president, and Mathew Foner was the secretary. Professor Gisbert Flanz acted as faculty adviser. Irwin Bernhardt, Edwin Fogelman, Lawrence Fuchs, Arthur Kamell, Paul Marks, Howard Rich, Edward Rogow, Jerome Shneidman, Howard Sieven, Leo Silver- stein, Howard Stave, and Harry Weinrauch were members. alpha pi mu Recently organized, in December, 1949, Alpha Pi Mu is already involved in proiects to aid students and private organizations. The Heights chapter of a national fraternity for industrial and administrative engineers has Professor Joseph Juran as faculty adviser, and it has done work in three diverse projects. 0 One obiect is to unite all the local industrial engineering honoraries into one large organization, another plan calls for conferring an award at the graduation ceremonies to that student industrial engineer who has shown exceptional academic interest and ability in his particular field. As a third activity, members of the society cooperated in an overall program designed to train men who will work in the educational therapy department of the Bronx Veteran's Administration Hospital. 0 Open to both engineering students in the day and evening divisions, members will be elected twice annually on the basis of scholarship, achievement, character, and future promise. 0 The officers were: Franklin White, president, Steven Purcell, vice-president, Simone Palo, recording secretary, Harvey Brock, corresponding secretary, and Robert Meisel, treasurer. Members included: Nicholas Adams, Jerry Beck, Rollin Carey, Walter Churgin, William Dorsey, Louis Dougherty, Herman Fialkov, Richard Geiger, William Gladding, Leonard Hackenberg, Harry Horwitz, Francis Jarmuz, Jay Klein, Fred Lafer, Edward Levin, Warren Lubin, Harry Meyer, Charles Nolan, Irving Press, lsidor Seidler, Eugene Sichel, Sheldon Simon, Edward Wallace, and David Weinger. beta lambda sigma "To promote interest in, and the desire for, biological learning, to encourage and develop those individuals who have an aptitude for such learning," is the purpose of Beta Lambda Sigma expressed in the preamble to its constitu- tion. Undergraduates must be carrying work in biology at the time of election, must exhibit additional evidence of interest in the subiect, and must have a minimum biology average of eighty-five per cent to qualify for membership. 0 Offices are divided between students and the faculty, with Professor Daniel Ludwig as chancellor, Harold Bernanke, Arts '50, as vice-chancellor, Professor Charles H. Willey the secretary-treasurer, and Herbert Radack as the student secretary. 0 Harold Adel, Herbert Ausubel, Leonard Barkin, Edward Barnett, Sheldon Berger, Berman Berkowitz, Eugene Bernstein, Robert Bloom, Leonard Braunstein, Randolph Chase, Sterling Chaykin, Samuel Cohen, Sanford Edberg, Jerry Edelman, Seymour Eisner, Uriel Federbush, Lawrence Feuerman, Paul Gans, Melvin Goldberg, Arthur Gordon, David Hanson, Ernest Hausman, Mar- tin Hayman, Daniel Heller, Franklin Horowitz, Jerome Horowitz, Samuel Horo- witz, Lawrence Isaacs, Aaron Janoff, Arthur Karmen, Robert Karol, Harold Keltz, Alexander Kessler, Franklin Klaf, Richard Krasnow, Louis Lazarou, Seymour Molinoff, John Nagel, Paul Nonkin, Moreye Nusbaum, Elliott Raskin, Herbert Ross, Harry Rubin, Richard Schain, Jerome Schwartzbaum, George Segall, Moisy Shopper, Robert Silber, Stanley Silverman, Arnold Sobel, Norman Strauss, Marvin Warman, Howard Weintraub, Murray Weissbach, Israel Weisberg, and Jerome Wolfson were members. eta kappa nu The qualities of scholarship, interest, and promise of future achievement in the electrical engineering profession are the factors determining which students will be elected to Eta Kappa Nu. A national honorary society, the Heights chap- ter, Beta Zeta, was organized in 1937 under the direction of Professor Harold Torgersen. 0 Now, with Professor B. James Ley as faculty adviser, the chap- ter works along with other groups of the honorary to improve the standards of the profession and aiso the courses of instruction in electrical engineering. Elections are held annually, and membership is open to a select number of juniors and seniors in the day and evening divisions of the College of Engi- neering. 0 The honorary's officers were: William Bocchino, president, Vincent Sansevero, vice-president, Gilbert Ben-Haroche, corresponding secretary, Leon- ard Newman, recording secretaryp Henry Kammenzind, bridge correspondentp and Milton Gerber, treasurer. O Members included: George Bachman, George Bodeen, Joseph Bodow, Eugene Boronow, Aldo Bottani, Arthur Crawford, Wal- ter DeFilippi, Richard Devaney, Norman Dieter, Ronald Finkler, Frank Godfrey, William Greenbaum, William Henn, Leon Hillman, Eugene lozzino, John Kear- ney, Alfred Lidle, Nathan Lipitz, George Littner, Cedris Maasik, Donald McCrary, Fred Picus, James Rarity, Fred Reibert, Elias Schutzman, Dominic Skaperdas, Robert Vail, Morton Weinberg, Harold Weiss, Herbert Wexler, Warren Wines, Akira Yamasaki, and Curt Zoller. eta kappa omega A development out of the recently-founded Keynesian Economics Society and the increased activity of such management groups as HMA, Hamilton Com- merce and SAM, another honorary was added to the University College roster this year when Eta Kappa Omega was organized to give some reward for high accomplishment in economics. The preamble to the constitution notes the purpose of the society as being "to provide recognition for outstanding students in economics, to secure an open forum for the interchange of ideas among such students, and to provide a means of bringing speakers noted for their con- tribution in this field to the campus." O The requirements for admission to the honorary are set at a general minimum average of eighty-five, and at least six points of A or twelve credits of B in economics courses. As the society grows with the years it is expected to cooperate with other honoraries in the social sciences to suggest improvement in the curriculum, to hold joint meetings for prominent speakers, and to become an advisory group for the faculty. O John Greguoli was elected president after he led plans for the organization of Eta Kappa Omega, and David Goldman, vice-president, and Arnold Schapiro, secretary, were also active in its establishment. First members chosen were: Gideon Cashman, Alvin Daniels, Stanley Gottesfeld, Maximilian Kobryner, John Leto, and Bruno Stein. green room The Green Room Honor Society serves as the governing body for the activities of the Hall of Fame Players, determining which plays will be presented, mak- ing policy for both groups, and encouraging the growth of dramatic enterprise at the Heights-all with the assistance of the faculty adviser, Mr. Richard H. Turner. 0 Located adiacent to the Little Theater in Gould Dormitory, the Green Room itself is a lounge, and its walls show many scenes from past productions, exhibition modeis of stage machinery, and scale reproductions of sets, as well as framed programs and other momentos of previous successes. It is the room where the Players gather to discuss problems involved in their current presen- tation, and it is where the honor society meets to formulate procedure. C A fuller schedule, to guarantee an opportunity for all Famers to participate in at least one production, was instituted, and the development of a much-needed alumni group was begun. 0 During the first half of the year the officers were: Steven Frimmer, president, Eugene Jones, vice-president, Herbert Bootzin, secre- tary, and Fred Burstein, treasurer. In the spring term, Allen Weisse served as president, with Robert Youdelman and Burstein vice-president and secretary- treasurer, respectively. The new slate was necessitated by the mid-year grad- uation of Frimmer. Arthur Fisher, Marvin Gelman, Alan Josephson, and Ronald Saland were the remaining members. joseph park When officers and members of the Huntington Hill Historical Society decided this year to open membership in that group to all, thereby dropping their attempts to maintain it as an honorary, they felt that there was still a need for an organization to reward students of history for excellence in their academic work. The result of this decision is the Joseph Park History Honor Society. I Dedicated to carrying on more specialized discussion, advanced lectures, and assistance to the department, Park selected its members with high prerequi- sites: a ninety minimum average in history and eighty-five for a general grade. ln addition, those seeking membership must be taking history courses toward either a major or a minor. I The honorary, of course, takes its name from Professor Joseph Hendershot Park, the popular chairman of the History depart- ment, in recognition of his long service to the University and his many years of influencing undergraduates' interest in his specialty. O James Schlesinger, instrumental in establishing the society, became its first president, while Howard Stave was elected vice-president and Howard Rich the founding secretary. Great care was taken in the selection of charter members, and those honored were: Herbert Ausubel, William Bowsky, Jerry Edelman, Seymour Eisner, Robert Karol, Franklin Klaf, Paul Marks, Seymour Molinoff, Jordan Popper, Edward Rogow, Frederick Schult, Robert Weingarten, and Jerome Wolfson. pershing rifles Company E-8 of a national organization, Pershing Rifles is an honorary society for students in the basic courses of Military Science who show qualities of out- standing leadership. The group strives for proficiency in drill, leadership, and character, and holds meetings to discuss problems common to all. 0 Annually the society enters a crack drill team in the regimental meet, this year to be the sophomore and freshman classes, and the final selection is made held at Cornell. Besides giving a demonstration of their skill on ROTC Field Day, members of the fraternity also aid the University at graduation exercises and official ceremonies. Co-sponsor of the Military Ball, Pershing Rifles held a social for similar units in the metropolitan region during Christmas, and they took part in the ROTC Cadre. O Candidates for membership are drawn from with the advice and assistance of Lt. Col. George M. Simmons, faculty adviser. O The group's officers were: Peter Graubard, Captain, Milton Rose, lst Lieu- tenant, and William Furman, Stuart Nelson, and Charles Roscher, each a 2nd Lieutenant. Kenneth Brody, Hugo Daffara, Ben Diamant, Salvitore Divita, Harvey Engelsher, Hugo Freudenthal, Anthony Gristina, Myron Helman, Edward Kap- lan, Robert Katz, Alan Kent, Robert Landau, Donald Meyer, Paul Munter, Stewart Nellis, Myron Nobler, Stanley Opatowsky, Elliott Palais, Marvin Polan, Allan Schrier, Stuart Schulman, and John Terpstra were members. phi lambda upsilon Embracing both colleges of the Heights campus, Phi Lambda Upsilon, the national honorary society in chemistry, is open to undergraduate chemistry maiors, graduate students, and chemical engineers. With a stated purpose of "promoting scholarship and original investigations in all branches of chemis- try," the fraternity was founded at the University of Illinois in 1899, while the Heights section, Alpha Lambda chapter, was opened in 1935. 0 Among the charter members were Dr. Harry G. Lindwall, chairman of the Chemistry de- partment, and Professors John E. Ricci, Thomas W. Davis, and H. Austin Taylor, all presently teachers on the campus. Another original member was Professor Edward J. Durham, now faculty adviser of the group. Additional officers of the society are: Alfio Besozzi, president, Henry Frachtman, vice-president, Theodore Bieber, secretary, Edwin Goldsmith, treasurer, and Robert Kelly, the alumni secretary. 0 On recommendation of the faculty, students are considered for membership if they have a specified high average in the subiect, are of good character, and if they have shown interest in the broader aspects of chemistry. The number of men to be admitted each year depends solely on the number qualified. O This year members were: Joseph Adams, Eliot Belitsky, Sheldon Berger, Berman Berkowitz, Harold Bernanke, Joseph Bernstein, Stanley Burrows, Alvin Gelb, Rino Godino, Arthur Karmen, Richard Krasnow, Elmer Lind, Roy Lucas, Jack Otifenbach, William Redanz, Francis Ryan, Abner Salant, Donald Sloan, George Vescio, Peter Wayne, Harry Weinrauch, and Richard Zohmon. pi tau sigma Pi Tau Sigma, the national honorary society in mechanical engineering, was founded at the University of Illinois in 1915 "to establish a closer bond of friendship among those men in the study and the profession of mechanical engineering, who by their academic or practical achievements manifest a real interest and a marked ability in their chosen work." The Pi Zeta chapter was installed at the Heights in 1943. I Richard Whittingham was president, Stanley Mikrut and lgnazio D'Agati served as vice-president and recording secretary, respectively, and the faculty board included Professor Austin H. Church as adviser, Professor William H. Roberts as corresponding secretary, and Professor Erwin H. Hamilton, treasurer. 0 To further interest in mechani- cal engineering, a handbook is annually awarded to the sophomore with the highest scholastic average, and close contact is maintained with the student chapter of the ASME. Elections are held twice yearly and are based on aca- demic standing and character. 0 For the first semester, members were: John Barret, Stanley Braun, William Clark, David Duncan, Richard Ebbets, Charles Ellis, William Fisk, Robert Franzini, lra Garfunkel, Seymour Goldstein, Stanley Goldstein, Peter Griffith, Walter Hermes, Alexander Kohn, Walter Lechner, Paul Levi, Julius Liff, Wallace Moritz, John Neustaetter, Harold Patfrath, Mark Page, Charles Perschke, Peter Phillips, George Rainer, Howard Rapaport, Kurt Rein- heimer, Harold Simmonds, Jerome Strauss, Julius Szigety, Joseph Testa, Alex- ander Vekony, Sheldon Weinig, Woodrow White, Paul Wick, and Thomas Williams. psi chi High scholastic standing in psychology, an excellent general average, and indi- cation of further studies in the field are the prerequisites for election to Psi Chi, a national honor organization. Chartered at the Heights in 1933, the impor- tance of this honorary to the campus has grown proportionally as interest in psychology and related subiects has increased with the students. I The pri- mary purpose of Psi Chi is to augment the members' knowledge and under- standing of psychological theory and new developments by means of frequent lectures, visits to clinical institutions, and the discussion of material supple- mentary to that given in the classroom. In its work, the honorary cooperates with the Psychology Society, and it stands ready to aid the faculty in career guidance for undergraduates. O Membership may be either active or asso- ciate, with those students not currently taking courses in the department eligible for election to the latter division. During the academic year of 1949-50, Herman Feldman was president, and Louis Radner and Bernard Roth were vice-president and secretary-treasurer, respectively. Professor Douglas H. Fryer, the faculty adviser, supervised activities of the group. O Full members were: Irwin Alt- man, Harvard Armus, Lester Cohen, John De Silva, William Drucker, Robert Gardner, Boris Gertz, Jonah Hymes, Lawrence Levine, Donald Nierenberg, Harold Peters, Milton Rose, Maurice Shilling, Eugene Stollman, Russell Wein- traub, and Allen Willner. Associate membership was given to Leonard Barkin, Sheldon Berger, Ralph Davidoff, Avram Jacobson, Robert Ralph, Joel Solomon, and Melvin Wallace. quill ln the early nineteen-thirties, when there was only one newspaper for all the undergraduate colleges of New York University, Quill was a society honoring those members of the publication who had performed outstanding service in the way of writing, editing, or managing. When this single newspaper was dropped in favor of the current system of an individual paper for each of the colleges, Quill was allowed to expire. 0 ln order to preserve the ties of friendship and to keep their undergraduate days fresh in their memories, the editors of the Heights Daily News this year decided to reestablish Quill as an honor fraternity exclusively for the Heights. C The criteria for election were set down to be substantial, valuable, and distinguished service in the interest of the News over a minimum period of three years. Two elections were sched- uledp one at the end of each semester, with the first to limit candidates to men of senior standing. I Five men received a majority of the ballots cast this year by the entire staff and they became the charter members. These men, Mathew Foner, Richard Gallagher, Yale Kamisar, Stanley Lesser, and Gilbert Sheinbaum, then elected five men from either the managing or associate boards from 1947 through May, 1949. Those chosen were: Donald Cashman, editor '48-'49, Stanley Hochman, sports editor '47-'48, Norman Jackman, sports editor '48-'49, Theodore Lewis, business manager '47-'48, and Alfred Lurie, editor '47-'48. Plans were drawn for a reunion meeting in May. scabbard and blade Reactivated in the spring of 1947 after being in suspension during the war, E Company, 6th Regiment of Scabbard and Blade again began its work of functioning as a liaison between the cadet group and the Military Science faculty, furthering interest in the ROTC program, and promoting good fellow- ship. 0 Members are selected for admission by faculty members whenever particular students show that they have met the rigid requirements-excellence in drill and command, proficiency in course material, and outstanding qualities of leadership and character. Current members of the honorary must approve those men recommended, in addition, they may suggest other students for membership. O An extensive social program is also part of the Scabbard and Blade's yearly activity. Regular smokers are held to consider questions which may have arisen in the line of duty, and the group also sponsors a military ball, given this year at the Astor Roof. O Student officers in the society are: Captain Alvin Daniels, commanding officer, Paul Behnke, 1st Lieu- tenant, Iver Johnson, 2nd Lieutenant, and Ronald Schneider, 1st Sergeant. Other members all are enrolled in the Advanced Corps section of the ROTC program, and these include: Joseph Arcidiacono, Randolph Chase, William Bocchino, Yale Kamisar, John Kearney, Thomas Kent, Fred Lafer, Alvin Lovell, Arnold Meyer, Robert Michell, William Millar, Ralbern Murray, Emanuel Nobile, William Palica, and Thomas Stevenson. tau kappa alpha To outstanding members of the Debate Council goes the honor of inclusion in Tau Kappa Alpha, the national honorary forensic society. In order to qualify for admission, a student must have been a member of the debate group for at least two years, and only those who have excelled in their debating activi- ties are accepted. Candidates are voted upon by the undergraduate members of the organization with the recommendation of their faculty adviser, Mr. John Herder. O Tau Kappa Alpha was founded at Indianapolis, Indiana, in 1908, and there are now eighty-eight active chapters in the country. The Heights chapter was installed in 1942, and since then there have been some thirty members elected, most of whom intended to enter the legal profession. 0 A series of forums, debates, and round-table discussions were held with vari- ous campus groups this year as part of a new policy to foster interest in public speaking on the campus. Questions argued were of national importance, with sample topics being a uniform divorce law and socialized medicine, the latter subiect aired before the Bristol Pre-medical Society. 0 Martin Jay Hertz was president, and Howard Rich held the position of secretary-treasurer. Members were: William Bowsky, William Furman, Yale Kamisar, Leonard Klein, Calvin Leifer, Don Lichtenberg, Paul Marks, Sol Rosenbluth, James Schlesinger, Jerome Shneidman, Donald Sloan, Howard Stave, and Robert Witte. ,Q iff Z fxxx , A xx i'i-::,f:l1A- ,C QM ?

MJ'-'21 llx' .J I' I I 'lv b tif 'nl , H y . violet In putting together VIOLET 1950 the editors have learned that "yearbook" has one mean- ing lexicographers have overlooked. Work on this year's edition of Heights history began last May and was not completed until members of the staff helped carry packages of VlOLETs into the Bell Tower in May, 1950. O But the standard definition of a yearbook was also kept in mind, with the result that this volume has increased the amount of space given to undergraduate classes, sports, and the maior organizations. ln fact-and this is a standard self-commendation-the seniors carried off a book that has the great- est number of photographs, illustrations, and pages, in Heights history. It was not easy, and acknowledgments have to be made first to those most responsible for the eventual ap- pearance of VIOLET as it is-Mr. Robert W. Kelly, our publisher, Mr. Murray Tarr, our photographer, and a generous Student Coun- cil. C Although this year's VIOLET repre- sents a return to the concept of a yearbook for the entire campus, the maior part of the work was done by relatively few students. The purpose behind this concentration was f mathew foner 0 editor not to prevent the laurels being spread too thin, but to achieve a harmony of writing styles and a unity of presentation. Accord- ingly, factual material and information about societies and activities, gathered by a re- search stalf, was given a sifting by the assist- ant editors, and then polished by the writers on the managing board. Most of the positions were filled by students who had accumulated experience working on the newspaper and who were willing to work against a more urgent deadline-a certain June day. 0 Mathew Foner, managing editor in 1949, was "rewarded for his efforts" last spring with the editorship, along with the materials of office: fourteen photographs out-of-focus, a stubby blue pencil, a key to the mailbox, and a list of twenty-two "don'ts." Subordi- nate editors were appointed, arrangements were made for beginning the frustrating task of recording the seniors' faces on film, grop- ing steps were taken toward drawing up a dummy, and then the staff scattered for the summer vacation. Meanwhile planning and preparation went on with three vague goals in mind: a larger book, greater accuracy, and an earlier publication date. 0 ln the course of the work, several novel features were incorporated into VIOLET 1950-a com- bined history-chairmen-scenic views section, some pages devoted to popular instructors, double-page spreads on the maior events of the year, a modern type face, and incidental variations on a conservative idea in the lay- out. The year of graduation itself, 1950, the close of a half century, suggested a possible theme. However, use of such a guide was vetoed because the editors felt that the Heights should avoid what most other of the country's colleges would seize upon as origi- close to the truth. Responsibility for the ven- ture rests with the editor and, while there are others to help, he has to command, coax, and correct in order to see that each square inch of space is accounted for and the book actually distributed. Fortunately we did not have to worry about the printing and bind- ing. 0 A uniformity of presentation was one of the goals. One man on the staff, more than all the others, made it possible to reach that aim. David Slade, the art editor, was told to illustrate VIOLET and was given free rein. More than half of his assignment was completed by the time classes took up again nal. Instead, the theme for 1950 is the Heights from the ground up. What it looked like and felt, the changes and events, of freshmen grown to senior standing, of valuable hours and study and relaxation, of classes and classmates-a gift to New York University for value received. 0 With no intention of eliciting pity, it may be said more went into this book than its readers can realize. Be- sides the planning, the creative work, and the revisions, Saturday conferences and cut lectures, there were galley proofs and second galley proofs, page proofs and final page proofs. The '49 editor, AI Luca, said putting out VIOLET was a one-man iob, and he came In September. ln addition to executing ap- propriate pen-and-ink drawings, he was of great aid to the editor in arranging captions, type, and pictures in a fresh manner. His title, "art editor," is misleading, for he was the entire art staff, too. O There are other men on the staff who certainly deserve com- mendation. William Drucker had the tedious iob of reducing the often illegible, more frequently over-blown senior activity forms to typed, alphabetized order, and did his work well. Ronald Ruskin, business manager, managed to get ads from the oddest sources in reaching the quota that had been set as necessary to cover subsidization of this book david slade stanley lesser ronald ruskin to undergraduates. Gil Sheinbaum pored continually over proofs to make sure that everything was sound typographi- cally. Stanley Lesser harvested the reports on an undistin- guished athletic year, and Yale Kamisar provided anecdotes and sports statistics. O Competent discharge of duties was obtained from men in the lower echelons as well, espe- cially-Gideon Cashman, who assigned and gathered stories, Maurice Bassan and David Sterling, first-rank re- write men, William Furman, handling fraternities, Bernie Herskovitz, and a trio of able sophomores, Robert Getz, Harvey Bezahler and Harold Gal, who pounded their type- writers long and faithfully. O For all the time spent, it was fun. Out of countless hours of labor there is a book to put on a shelf, and no longer manila paper, envelopes, photographs, and forms. If it were to be done over again, there would be no maior changes. We do not claim to have shown a new way in yearbook construction, nor is VIOLET 1950 a reference book. It is the Heights seen by seniors, with attitudes formed by four years, and softened by this being their last. It is the record of those already separated and looking back.

It was not long after that editorial before the three undergraduate newspapers at Washington Square, the Undergraduate Athletic Board, and the alumni saw the opportunities opened up by the News and climbed aboard the News- driven bandwagon. O Joining in a co- ordinated effort, and supported by wide publicity in the local and national press and by such occurrences as the student demonstration at the Heights, when several hundred marched on the A. A. Office chant- ing "We've had enough," these forces cre- ated a situation which the University Council could no longer disregard. 0 Effects of the persistent demands for a change were first realized early in January when Chancellor Chase called a special conference with the student newspapers and the UAB. There he announced that the University Council had selected a five-man committee to study heights daily news the condition of sports. Confronted with this sudden announcement, everyone interested in improving the Violet outlook retired for a time, satisfied in the hope that something was going to be done about the sick condi- tion of athletics here. Until the committee could make its report, the News iust had to sit back and wait, but it did not forget the committee and took occasion frequently to remind the University that everyone was still waiting. O Varsity athletics, particularly football, may have occupied the spotlight in the Heights Daily News for 1949-50, but most of the three thousand Heightsmen who scan its pages every day are ordinarily more interested in the individual announcements and resumes of activities of the eighty-odd organizations on campus. And every day groups of Heightsmen converge upon Phi- losophy Hall, the Bell Tower, Bliss, and Commons in search of their copies of the publication now in its nineteenth year. O ln possessing a newspaper that publishes daily during the course of the academic year, University Heights has always taken great pride in the News. This organ of news, in- formation, publicity and interest has con- sistently been ranked among the best student-published papers in the country. And the crowd that mills around the steps of the Library each noon reading the day's edition, has become as much a part and custom of our campus life as the societies, fraternities, freshman ducking, or the pub- lications themselves. Without the day-to-day reporting by the Heights Daily News, how- ever, attempts at campus activity would be totally ineiectual. O News and sports ma- terial published in the paper are usually restricted to events and items concerning l " Q . v, as t . 1 .. X nw. Heights life or University affairs. Coverage extends from the one-sentence notices of club meetings in the widely-read "Campus Announcements" section on page four to the complete and last-minute on-the-spot re- porting of all maior University sports events. Feature items on all subiects of interest ac- company the editorials on page two, and these include theater reviews, humorous articles, and an occasional crossword puzzle. 0 But the policy of complete exclusion of news outside the University, established by preceding administrations of the Heights News, was not adhered to strictly during 1949-50. Members of the managing board felt they could perform a needed service for the benefit of the students by carrying summaries of the election platforms of the leading New York senatorial and mayoralty candidates in the fall campaign. Interviews with the three maior figures in the race for mayor were also includedy however, the News declined to comment on the elections or the candidates-except to get out the vote, a function of every newspaper. It further went on record as opposing those trends sweeping the nation which have sought to restrict the freedom of education. Several editorials placed the newspaper squarely against the use of loyalty checks on teachers, laws to deny certain people the right to teach, and the intolerable accu- sations made against many of the country's foremost educators. In order to help students clamp down on these aims, full participa- tion by all groups in discussions dealing with the problem of attaining a more per- fect educational system was urged. 0 And for the third year in a row, the new gym- nasium was a favorite subject with the News, for the two-year-long task of reconstruction occasionally seemed to hit a snag. Ulti- mately, however, the subiect of almost twenty years of fund-raising and campaign- ing was officially opened early in June by the alumni. The Heights Daily News com- memorated the gym opening-a little pre- mathew foner stanley c. lesser maturely so that it could do so before suspending publication for the year-with a sixteen-page issue in May, the largest the News has ever published. O Early in the first semester, the movement towards elimi- nating all forms of campus discriminatory practices finally reached University Heights. The News joined with Student Council in the fight, and after considerable debate Council successfully approved an amendment for- bidding clauses discriminating between race or religion in the charter of any campus society. Further response came from the lnterfraternity Council, which passed a simi- lar resolution in relation to fraternities. And the News continued the drive by urging the local and national chapters of the Greek- letter groups to suspend their restrictive clauses and practices. 0 A well-planned, stable, and foresighted social calendar was another improvement for the Heights strongly advocated by the Heights Daily News, and the creation of a calendar expected to give the campus a good social program was soon forthcoming. In addition, the paper called for a better guidance program for the Uni- versity College, and the News offered its assistance by printing evaluations of many upperclass courses iust prior to registration for the fall term. And following the initial success of the houseplan program, which had begun the previous year, further de- velopment of the proiect was promoted by concrete suggestions from the editorial l f :sr yale i. kamisar ierold s. heiss column. 0 An interesting venture into the field of creative writing was made by the News in the spring term when it sponsored a short story contest. Motivated by a gener- ally critical reception for the first issue of Review, the purpose of this competition was to show that there was considerable literary talent on campus. The result was that the iudges were swamped with entries. O Be- sides the gym opening issue, three special editions appeared during the year. The first was the freshman orientation issue, which served to guide frosh activity during the two-day indoctrination program. Next came the annual Fordham issue-this recalling the glorious football days of 1927, when an attendance of 50,000 people was estimated to see the Violet beat Fordham-and they did, 32-0. Another spur towards a better grid- iron standing, that day's paper effectively contrasted past and sad present. And then there was the April Fool's issue . . . 0 Headed by Gilbert H. Sheinbaum, editor-in- chief, the managing board took responsibility for the entire policy of the paper and super- vised the production of each edition. The editors tried to bring to the campus a news- paper which would be founded on a liveli- ness of style to retain interest, and yet observe the best journalistic form. Only the rapid disappearance of copies of the paper from its distribution points across the campus -more quickly than any other year-can attest sufficiently to the success which its editors achieved. C Day after day during the course of the year, the small number of Heightsmen returned again and again to the News' office in Lawrence House to put the paper to bed in good fashion. Unpaid and unexcused from regular attendance at classes, the staff's satisfaction came from working in a friendly atmosphere of gener- ally single interest toward a worthwhile goal-and occasional by-lines. I Besides the ever-watchful eye of Editor Sheinbaum over the operation of the staff, managing editors Mathew Foner and Stanley Lesser more than ably assisted in maintaining the efficiency and hunger for news so essential to the publication of a good newspaper. Yale Kamisar as sports editor was the symbol of creativeness for the sports department, and business manager Jerold Heiss framed a smoothly working financial department and directed the drive for revenue through ad- vertisements to subsidize the cost of publi- cation. 0 It is in the outer office, however, where the tiresome and sometimes disheart- ening iob of writing stories and shaping headlines takes place, that is the nerve center of the whole campus, as well as of the News itself. On the men who sit as edi- tors at their respective desks rests the burden of handling the men, checking copy, and making assignments. Each unexpendable, their duties are about the most important in the process of publication, although few compliments are ever extended to them- while the editor often takes the liberty of reprimanding them. It was Maurice Bassan at the news desk, David Sterling turning out the most varied features page in years, and Richard Gallagher, Martin Salzman and Eugene Bernstein on the sports desk, who held the responsibility of seeing that the paper was readied for the printer each afternoon. I Every once in a while some- one will ask, "How do they get out a news- paper every single day?" And the editors often contemplate the same question, for there were times when an edition of the News almost never got to its "news stands" -or sometimes even beyond the office. Yet none of the issues failed to appear, and most of them arrived on campus before eleven o'clock-an unprecedented time- while each issue retained the quality stu- dents have come to expect. I This year the Heights Daily News has endeavored to present constructive words to Student Coun- cil, the Heights administration, and the Uni- versity, as the voice of the student body. With a broader point of view, the News editors made it their purpose to present unified campus opinion for interested agen- cies to consider, but it was also the News- men's aim, speaking from an excellent van- tage point overlooking all University activity, to shape that opinion as they thought best.

W City-Wide Printing Cnjlnc. differ 40: 195 lT.i4th quadrangle The iob of editing Quadrangle becomes a more responsible position each year, as its standing in the field of college engineering magazines goes higher. Disregarding this fact for a moment, consider that Quadrangle is issued six times during the school year, in November, December, January, March, April, and May, and each edition involves many hours of planning, research, revision, and correction. Fortunately, the editor is not alone in putting out the magazine, with this year no exception. 0 Having served as managing editor under Steven Baur the pre- vious year, Editor-in-Chief William A. Boc- chino was well prepared to take over his new duties. To aid him, three men were named to the managing board. Edwin Mar- shall, who had picked up valuable experi- ence working for Iron Age, a trade magazine, during the summer, became associate editor, financial and advertising activities were placed under the direction of the able Gilbert Ben-Haroche, and Ralph Chiaro assumed the 2 Ox 'B We-overs? f?f1?"f9fOn?4 william a. bocchino 0 editor position of managing editor, having won the admiration of the board for his work as as- sistant to the managing editor in 1949. O An innovation introduced by Bocchino, which proved its worth in increasing the efficiency of Quadrangle operations, was the 'creation of an associate board to handle much of the detail work that had previously only added to the burden of the managing board. Morton Feinsilver was the assistant managing editor, Stanley Adelman the features editor, Alan Breslau edited the illustration department, and Ira Garfunkel was the technical editor. O The format of the magazine was not altered radically, with the policy of having a four-color plate on the cover being continued for the second year. ln each issue of ap- proximately fifty pages, the number of stu- dent-written articles was increased. In addi- tion, the editor strengthened his aim, when he put the accent on shorter articles in a popularized form, with increased illustrative material, to appeal to students in all the branches of engineering. Each issue also contained the usual "Dean's Pen" feature, commenting on special developments in the field which would be of interest to under- l .ef graduates, and the "Editorial" column, this year putting continual emphasis on the im- portance of extra-curricular activities to the The University of Minnesota treated maga- zine delegates to a show of old-time Western activity inbetween meetings. development of personality and future suc- cess. O Quadrangle effected a minor scoop in the March issue, when it printed on its cover a plate borrowed from Time. This color drawing, an artist's conception of a human- ized mechanical computer, fitted in well with an article on computers by Sol Kamchi, but more important, it was the first time the newsmagazine had loaned out a cover to anyone, and this added to the reputation of Quadrangle as a leaderlin the field. 0 An important series of articles published this year discussed aspects of the projected new Physics Building. This contemplated addition to the Heights skyline, which is to occupy the site of the present Green and Old Engi- neering buildings, will complete the engineer- ing guadrangle at the south end of the cam- pus when it is constructed. Cutaway plans, sketches of rooms, and overall drawings gave "concrete" form to the writings, and the need for such a building was pointed up in an independent article by Professor Joseph Boyce. O Among the other essays which appeared in Quadrangle's pages were: a two-part article by the late Henry Kun on peacetime military engineering, Walter Sar- no's study of heat pumps, a discussion of turboiet engines by Fred Hayos, "Scientific Methods in Society," by Professor C. E. Gregory, and a short course in modern bridge building by Daniel Koffler. O Staff members contributed their features regularly. Undoubt- edly, the most popular was "Quadlings," a humor page run by Edward Reiss. This page bore the sub-caption, "Stolen corn-the first page read in the magazine." Other features of more lasting value included "Campus News," conducted by Henry Saruya, "Dollars and Sense," by Robert Frankel, Irwin Tunis' "News Notes", and Warner Lowe's interviews of undergraduates in "Have You Met?" O The start of the spring term saw Herbert Kalish take over as illustration editor, when the pressure of extra-curricular work forced Breslau to drop from the staff, Irving Brown replaced Morton Feinsilver as assistant man- aging editor, with Feinsilver moving up to become department editor, and lra Garfunkel advanced to the managing board as a second associate editor. With everything running smoothly, Garfunkel was permitted to edit the April issue to gain experience for work after graduation, and in May the tradition of having the following year's editor put out the last issue was continued, with the burdens and responsibilities of office descending on Edwin Marshall. 0 As a member of the Engineering College Magazines Associated, Quadrangle must adhere to certain rules and to standards of publication laid down by the organization. A copy of each issue is sent to the chairman of that body to receive grading and criticism, and before the begin- ning of each fall term a convention is held, at which prizes are awarded to those maga- zines that have proven themselves outstand- ing in various departments. This year Boc- chino, Marshall and Ben-Haroche represented Quadrangle at the convention, held at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. O After three days of panel discussions held to resolve common problems that arise in pub- lishing a magazine, there was an award ban- quet to wind up the meeting. At this dinner, the first surprise came when Quadrangle won third place for the best student-written arti- clesp the second, when the publication took a second prize for the best illustrations: and the third and biggest, when the I948-1949 Quadrangle was given third place among engineering college magazines in the country for best all-around performance. The Heights delegates came back to college determined, at the very least, to maintain that superior rating. WILLIAM A. BOCCHINO Editor-in-Chief EDWIN L.

Hoping for a biannual, the editors had to settle for one issue a year when Council funds ran low. However, with the appropriation finally made, the editorial board set to work gathering essays. With the cooperation of the faculty advisers, Professors E. C. Smith and Kurt Flexner, instructors were canvassed for suit- able term papers or independent proiects written in their classes. "Articles of scholarly merit and popular appeal" were requested, and writings were tentatively limited to about 2500 words to allow the fullest possible num- ber to be published. I Since few articles submitted were of such short size, at the regular Tuesday afternoon meetings the edi- tors had the double task of first selecting .xx- 42? f 'J , HMI I ., ff 1 ,A left to right: ronald ruskin, business manager, walter d'ull, editor, and mathew foner, managing editor essays of high quality and then compressing them to printable length. As far as feasible, footnotes were eliminated, numerous ex- amples were condensed to a pertinent few, and unessential tables or quotations or per- sonal opinions were cut out. No article suf- fered unduly by its diminution and readers were spared stretches of deathless prose. 0 Following the example of the new Review, the Journal was cast in the form of a pocket- size magazine, with a cover designed by David Slade. Besides being offered free to Heightsmen, copies were also sent to leading colleges, graduate schools-and local high schools, to show graphically the opportuni- ties offered by the University College to pros- pective students interested in social science studies. 0 The managing board had Walter D'Ull as editor-in-chief, Mathew Foner as managing editor, and Ronald Ruskin was the business manager. Edward Sadowsky, Bruce Grund, Alex Kessler and Joseph Greene made up the associate board of editors for the issue. Because of the nature of the work in constructing the issue, there were no staff members. review In an era filled with investigations of all sorts, even Review came under the inquisi- torial eye of an investigating body when Student Council appointed a committee to determine the place and function of a literary magazine on the Heights campus. The editor of Review, his managing editor, the president of Council, the iunior NSA delegate, and "an independent citizen," Gordon Morris, consti- tuted the membership. The action was taken as a result of the mixed opinions with which the fall issue of Review was received by students. 0 The editors expected comment when they were planning the issue. First, they chose the best pieces from the material submitted, refusing any attempt to "balance" representation or to cater to all literary tastes. Second, it was decided to put this material into an entirely new format. Slick paper and the heretofore conventional letter paper size were discarded in favor of a pocket- sized magazine printed on antique paper. Not only did this change cut publication costs by more than half, but it also permitted stories and essays to be run in complete sequence in single-column width, without having to continue them in later pages. Third, so that the creative work would stand by itself, illustrations were ruled out. Except for the cover design by art editor David Slade, the magazine was set solid with poems, an essay, stories, and short prose pieces. I These revisions were taken into consideration by the special committee and, after calm dis- cussion, Review was given a token admon- ishment. This took the form of a request that the editors put on a campaign, providing some sort of prize incentive, to get students to submit contributions more readily for fu- ture issues. ln addition, a note was to be sent to all English instructors, asking that they send on material they thought worth- iascha f. kessler 0 editor while. However, with Professor Ranney's bi- ennial class in Advanced Composition meet- ing this year, it was expected that the Wednesday night sessions would produce enough diversified writing to meet campus criticism of Review's single point of view. 0 Jascha Kessler became editor after hav- ing been on the magazine for three years, and an associate editor as a iunior. To com- plete the managing board, Mathew Foner, managing editor, Slade, and Stuart Jackson, business manager, were named. Mr. James B. Welch succeeded Mr. Reginald Call as faculty adviser, when the latter resigned to devote more time to graduate studies. As usual, the layout and accepted writing re- ceived his approval before the issue was sent to press, and the staff had an opportunity to meet informally with him several times during the year. O The method used in selecting material changed little from that of former years. But, instead of holding weekly meetings at which the author would read his work to receive the criticism of the stai, all material was left in a drawer of the Review desk. Staffmen came to the office at their convenience, read the pieces, and noted their reactions on a separate sheet of paper. These opinions were, in turn, read by the editors, and a final selection was made. 0 Dead- lines came early both semesters, although the PENS? I wr r W ifi , issues appeared in December and May. The fall magazine featured an explication of a Dylan Thomas poem, by Sanford Edelsteinp a short story and two poems by David Gallery and an essay on the poet and poetry by Kessler. For the spring issue, works by men in the Advanced Composition course, Joseph Greene, Myron Taube, and Robert Silber, were among the contributions which were i l .Q printed.

Then a great innovation struck the field of fun-Medley. With but a single No. 2 Venus pencil iwithout eraserl wielded by three cor- roded and perverted brains, the Heights humor magazine was born, and with it, the atomic age of wit was ushered into the Western Hemisphere. Don't laugh, friend, for the great minds that created the first Medley are now at Harvard, preserved in alcohol to be sure, but still continuing their relentless crusade against Review. O To get to the story of this year's endeavors, we have to turn back the calendar, Petty girl and all, to December, 1948, when the editors and sundry staff members of Medley gathered to con- gratulate each other on the success of their Christmas issue. Indeed, as most individuals will recall, congratulations were in perfect order, for the issue was exceptionally well received. 0 Still gathered in the Publica- tions Office, groggy with the last-minute work and the after-effects of the wassail bowl, a deadly leak in the circulation system was discovered. A single, unfolded, undogeared copy of Medley had found its way into the Faculty Club! After the news was spread through the crowded room, tobacco smoke hung like a dull opiate over the gathering. Medley had appeared and Medley had of- fended. ln between sobs and hurriedly scrib- bled farewell speeches, the staff waited for the dreaded words. I In the room where the committee on publications was meeting, there was merriment, for the various deans, associate professors, Mr. Kavanaugh, and assistant professors had time to laugh heart- ily while they thumbed through the issue with one hand, and then proceeded to cut Medley from the tree of life with the other. barry f. smith 0 editor What this action amounted to was the sus- pension of the humor magazine. The Medley staff, the student population, and the general public, including some instructors and the Military Science department, were shocked by this decision, as was John Milton, who murmured faintly from his grave, "First Para- dise Lost and now Medley Gone." O With heavy hand, the editors hung up their "Out to Lunch" sign on the door, and went on to eat a year's supply of bitter fruit and sour grapes, for the sign did come down a year later. During the general period of mourning, our birthrights were ignominiously destroyed, as were our coveted campaign medals, in- cluding those from the Battle of the Hunter Bulge and several Wilson for President pins. Not only this, but during this time, the staff forgot how to write. Strangely enough, even after the reinstatement, that failure proved a handicap, and the condition still exists-or perhaps the student body has forgotten how to read. 0 To return once more to the Medley story, early in 1950 a group of faculty men visited us in disguise and begged us to begin publishing Medley again, a proposi- tion which was flatly refused. However, after several months, we finally persuaded the faculty that Medley was needed on cam- pus iust as badly as the fifth floor of the gym, and by March, the first issue, a parody P51 For 21 Q! ,fsf f ' f f , Cf' A f' fjgfxx ffl ..

Needless to say, the issue was received, and rather enthusiastically. 0 In the bloodless coup that followed the reinstatement, Medley once again attained the literary distinction that it most assuredly deserved. The coup previously mentioned was executed by a band of loyal Medley supporters: Barry Smith, who ap- proximated an editor-in-chief, Herbert Prince, a noted female impersonator, who some- where got the name of managing editor, Lawrence Slotkoff who laughed and worked as associate editor, and Norman Sklar, an- other managing editor, who laughed. Daniel Shargorod became the business manager and twiddled his educated thumbs with such success that our delicate financial affairs al- most balanced. O Aside from the countless thousands who appear in the VIOLET group picture, other members on the staff giggled, swiped, and pasted their way to positions of respect. Among them: Martin Leichter, Irving Farber, William Weinstein, Sol Kamchi, and Philip Hixon, These men helped carry on the great tradition in the May issue, which even had the faculty laughing again-unsurrep- titiously. Finally, a work of thanks to Mr. Harry Muheim of the Speech Department, who ventured where others feared to tread by becoming our faculty adviser. 1 N maurice basson 0 editor palisades handbook That inevitable and invaluable adjunct to a bumbling freshman's first troublesome months at New York University Heights, the Palisades Handbook, again appeared this year to serve the new class of 1953-and with a double purpose. Not only did it guide the 'newcomer along the tortuous path of orientation, but, protruding visibly from the freshman's pocket, it gave notice to the sleepless vigilantes, otherwise known as the Hazing Committee, that the '53'er was ob- serving the rules of conduct proper for his status in the college community. I For longer than old professors care to remember, the Handbook, somewhat reverently referred to as the "Freshman Bible," has offered its concise and interesting outline of life at Uni- versity Heights. This year hard-working Pro- fessor Alan Coutts again resumed his role as faculty adviser of the publication, while Maurice Bassan, an Arts College iunior and erstwhile newspaperman, was handed the iob of editor-in-chief. I Working with a capable eleven-man staff that included Jer- old Heiss as business manager and Robert Donnenfeld as photography editor, Bassan began the two-month-long iob of gathering material, editing it, approving the new photos, and doing the painstaking task of proofreading the entire publication. An in- centive felt by the staff, in addition to its sense of responsibility for doing a good iob, was the knowledge that this year, purchas- ing of the glossy-printed, lll-page maga- zine was compulsory for all freshmen. I Well illustrated with an almost complete set of new photographs, the magazine was thor- oughly reorganized into coherent sections, dealing successively with the administration, the Heights campus, university history, col- lege life, freshman orientation, social events, the alumni, student activities and organiza- tions, student government, ROTC, and ath- letics. Preceded by introductory messages from the Chancellor and the Heights deans, the Handbook was rounded out with an ap- pendix containing a valuable directory for bewildered frosh. 0 In general, the attempt was made to keep all the material in the publication strictly up-to-date.

This handy, pocket-sized booklet, which may even be used to while away the boredom of a sub- way ride, is published as a service of Alpha Phi Omega. O Early in the fall term, the Recorders' offices become the second homes of a small group of APO men. Co-editors-in- Chief Paul Sirop and Edward Silver, with the willing assistance of Irwin Altman, Ted Bal- sam, William Porcelain, Herbert Green and Maurice Potowsky as associate editors, vir- tually lived in the Language Hall office, with times out for dashes to South Hall. Cards were checked and rechecked so often that the staff members were soon seeing numbers and letters wherever they went. However, the data was sorted, filed, and compiledp the printer did his work and the booklet was ready for distribution. I With almost every possible name listed at least twice in the telephone directories, the development of college friendships would be seriously hin- dered if it were not for the Student Directory. And since the men are not paid for their labors, they were gratified to see the speed with which the freshly arrived blue books were picked up. I There is a strangely persistent, close to traditional rumor that copies enioy a high exchange value with students at Hunter or Barnard. Whatever the student directory truth of that report is, it is definitely known that alumni often return to ask for old copies to reminisce over their college days, or to get in touch with someone they want to see again. O Another feature of the Directory is a section listing all campus organizations along with their officers, the members of Stu- dent Council, Gould Hall telephone numbers, and pertinent facts on the location of fra- ternity houses. Errors in this section may prove quite embarrassing, for the president of the Psychology Club may find that he has become the new Commander of Pershing Rifles, and such inversions may completely disrupt the Student Activities' extra-curricular card system.

Through the activities of the Council and the framework of the con- stitution under which it operated, it is pos- sible to understand the difficulties of student government at University Heights and throughout the nation. This, then, is not only a summation of the achievements of the 1949-50 version, but is also an evaluation of its activities in relation to the fundamental rules of order guiding its actions. I lThe annual election day at University Heights shall occur during the first week in May and freshman elections shall occur during the last week in October unless otherwise deemed by the Student Council.l Liberalization of election provisions during the last few years showed its effects in the spring campaigns for office, probably the most colorful and closely contested in campus history. More than sixty candidates vied for the twenty upperclass seats, literally covering the grounds with posters in the process of doing so, and bringing more than two thousand students to the polls to set a record vote and give Jesse Margolin, David Goldman and Robert Witte the responsibility of lead- ing the student body during the current year. In October, Council assisted in the election of three officers from the freshman class to bring the legislative group to its full strength of twenty-three members. I lThe Student Council shall have jurisdiction over all non- athletic extra-curricular activities of the stu- dent body, provided that no action of the Student Council shall infringe upon the iuris- diction of the faculties of New York Uni- versity.i Thirty-five words such as these de- fining the iurisdiction of the student governing body were of primary importance in the perennial cafeteria problem, which student leaders had thought solved by legislative action of last year's Council. Plans for buying out the cafeteria concession and equipment, which were well under way at the end of the spring semester, were negated during the summer when the faculty invoked the iuris- diction clause. lt was, therefore, necessary for members of the student legislative body to search for an alternate solution upon their return to work in September. This solution took the form of a student-faculty committee which investigated the conditions in Com- mons and secured many improvements, both in the quality of the food served and in the general atmosphere. I fThe Heights Pub- lications Committee shall have iurisdiction over the respective publications and shall choose the staffs for the succeeding years upon the recommendation of the incumbent stafTs.i Two campus publications with quite different problems were the obiect of con- sideration during the legislative year. The Heights humor magazine, Medley, had been a skeleton in the Council's closet since De- cember of 1948, when a particularly con- troversial issue resulted in the banning of the magazine. A special Council committee, chaired by iunior NSA delegate Gideon Cashman, devised an admittedly necessary 'ggi N Q- Q 1911 ii x"'0':w -2 'bl' :emi I gag, aw I 4 q' I 52 58' 'll' Q ' 0 , l 65. 1' U -2 if 12'-A-W " n "" fail ,1,g1g5s.zg1-- ' Ylwf, ', 'fu 11 censorship plan which received faculty sanc- tion and brought about the reinstatement and subsequent publication of the humor magazine in the spring term. 0 The pur- pose of a campus literary magazine was the problem which next faced both Council and members of the Heights publication, Review, after its autumn issue became the subject of unusually vocal pro and con discussion. Composed of appointees from the student governing body and two of the publication's managing board, a special committee sought to devise some system by which high lit- erary standards and an increased popularity might be made compatible. ln November the Council also authorized the long-proiected Journal of Social Sciences to begin collecting material for a magazine to be printed on an annual basis. The first edition of the modest iournal appeared in April. 0 fThis consti- tution may be amended and the By-Laws changed by a three-fourths vote of the total membership of the Council, provided that a similar vote shall have been rendered at least one week previous and that the amend- ment shall have been referred to the Consti- tutional committee two weeks previous.i The stringent provisions for amendment of the higher law of the campus were responsible for the near-defeat of the only valuable proposal of a constitutional nature during the year. Guaranteeing to students the right to participate in extra-curricular activities with- david goldman, vice-president 9 secretary, robert wltte out discrimination because of race, religion, creed or national origin, the amendment was a statement of policy rather than a prece- dent-making proposal, as almost no Council- chartered organization practiced such dis- crimination. However, the measure was at- tacked as being "anti-fraternity" and of "too loose" a construction, so that when the first roll call vote was over, the anti-discrimina- tion clause fell short of first passage by one ballot. With fuller discussion of the issue fol- lowing, the interest shown in it by students, and the circulation of a petition for a direct referendum, the minority opposed to the amendment decided to accede to popular opinion. After a month of debate, filled with many extraneous diversions and circumlo- cutions, the anti-bias provisions received the required three-fourths approval. ln passing the measure, Council also recommended to Heights fraternities that they support the re- moval of discriminatory clauses from their national constitutions. 0 lAt the beginning of his term the President of the Council shall appoint a Finance Committee, a Charters and Constitution Committee, an Election Commit- tee, an Eligibility Committee, a Social Affairs Committee and a Student Union Committee, all members of the Council and each to con- sist of not less than three membersi. As might be observed by attendance at any of the Thursday night meetings, much of the work of the Council is not accomplished during its regular sessions, but by its standing and special committees which function through- out the year. These sub-groups, vested with merely inquisitorial and supervisory powers, vary from the Student Union Committee, with its visionary activities, to the Finance Com- mittee, conducted by Vice-President David Goldman, with its very practical work on club budgets. l The second year of the campaign for a Student Union saw the com- mittee take further steps in the long road toward the building of an all-inclusive recre- ational center. Envisioning a new structure to complement the new gymnasium and to con- tain a theater, a cafeteria, lounges, offices, meeting rooms, and game facilities, the committee, upon the suggestion of its chair- man, David Sterling, conducted a token drive for student support in November when it sold booster buttons to almost four hundred Heightsmen. Its first annual Student Union Week was held in March in order to make the campus Student Union-conscious. Events during the week included a photographic exhibit, the circulation of a planning ques- tionnaire, numerous articles in the News, and wound up with an old-fashioned pie-throw- ing contest. O Another proiect which had been begun in the course of the previous Council's activities, the revision of freshman hazing rules, again came under the scrutiny of the governing body. Incorporating the best features of previous systems and revamping those which had proved ineffectual, the Haz- ing Committee directed two orientation pro- grams, in the fall and spring terms, and held inter-class competitions, frosh sings, and other "diversions" aimed at instilling a genu- ine interest in the traditions and opportunities of the Heights campus. O By the spring semester, the Council's Social Affairs Com- mittee, under the direction of much-harassed Paul Marks, had completed the difficult task of compiling and printing a social calendar, necessitated by the increase in the number of affairs sponsored by campus societies. The calendar permitted students to make their plans in advance for coming events, and coordinated such affairs so that not more than one big event, dependent upon a large attendance for financial success, was sched- uled in any one week. 0 The faculty rating system, another proiect introduced on cam- pus by the 1948-49 Council, was further implemented to gauge more efficiently a student's opinion of his teachers and his courses. The revised sheets were divided into two sections-one rating the individual in- structor on his organization of material, de- livery of the lecture and his general attitude, and the other covering the subject matter and textbooks used in the course. Two fac- tors limited the success of the ratings: dis- tribution of the forms was incomplete and was effected rather late in the semester, and the instructor was required to send only the second sheet on to the department chair- ti. man. O lThe secretary shall keep a com- plete record of all proceedings of the Council, attend to all correspondence, keep a correct roster of membership, maintain a record of attendance, and arrange for publication of minutes.l Minutes of the year's Council ses- sions point out many other accomplishments which made life at the campus more en- ioyable for Heightsmen. Subscriptions for a dozen national magazines and chess and checker sets were purchased and placed in the Bell Tower lounge as part of a campaign hour each day between twelve and one for all students, and that the basic ROTC courses become optional, rather than compulsory. To further such student-faculty cooperation, the Council also planned and carried out a series of "coffees" in the Faculty Club and urged that such further affairs as depart- mental dinners be held to allow students to meet their instructors informally. O When President Margolin laid down his gavel, and the other student representatives relinquished their seats in May, to make way for the to improve the facilities of the recreational center. ln the spring term, funds were also allocated for the purchase of ping pong tables and a piano for use in the lounge. O Under the heading of a gamble was the establishment of a campus radio broadcast- ing station, the money for its equipment being taken out of reserve funds. Secretary Robert Witte was also kept busy writing frequent recommendations made by the student legis- lature for consideration by the administration. Prominent among these requests were the suggestions that civilians be permitted to room in the Federal dormitories, that classes be scheduled in the future to provide a free Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of coun- sellors they are estab- lished.-Proverbs 15:22 leaders of the first Student Council in the new half century, it was with the firm con- viction that 1949-50 had been another suc- cessful year in student government. Despite the minor squabbles, the unruly sessions, and the heated debates, it had made major contributions to the welfare of the Heights: improvement of the cafeteria, the faculty rating system, the freshman orientation, the launching of two diverse enterprises, a radio station and a new publication, and coordi- nation of social events. Moreover, it had proved again that, given the opportunity, students could govern themselves intelli- gently. . . .a candidate supplements weekly Chapels by providing im- promptu instruction in the art song Nineteen forty-nine was a big election year that never made the met papers. No one polled the electorate and there were no national hookups for major policy addresses. But sixty-seven candi- dates put up posters with the unlikeliest slogans in the unlikeliest places. Sand- wichmen, mannikins, troubadors, and motorized parades were employed to convince each of the more than two thousand students who turned out to vote. There were election rules and rules of etiquette for the candidates. Everyone loved everyone else for one week-and through five p.m. on the day of balloting. Each of the twenty- three Council positions, except one, were contested, with four men running for president, three for vice-president, and two for the secretaryship. Voting was orderly and the ballot-counting was honest. When the results were an- nounced, the losers could still shake hands with the winners, except for one man who left the school. In all, the wide participation assured a popular government, if not the most progressive. elections ff.

The delegates faced a challenge, for never before had there been a national organization formed expressly to deal with the problems of students. I In a bold beginning at a convention in August 1947, the National Student Association set forth its purposes in the preamble to its constitution: "To maintain aca- demic freedom and student rights, to stimulate and improve demo- cratic student governments, to develop better educational standards, facilities, and teaching methods, to improve student cultural, social, and physical welfare, to promote international understanding and fellowship, to guarantee to all people, because of their inherent dig- nity as individuals, equal rights and possibilities for primary, second- ary, and higher education regardless of sex, race, religion, political belief or economic circumstance, and to foster the recognition of the rights and responsibilities of students to the school, the community, humanity, and God, and to preserve the interests and integrity of the government and Constitution of the United States of America." O lt was to achieve a positive program for the implementation of these purposes that the Heights delegation attended the second an- nual National Student Congress in August of 1949. Meeting with over 800 representatives from about 350 colleges at the University of Illi- nois, the Heights delegation fought to insure that NSA did more than pay lip service to the ideas expressed in its constitution. O The fight was about half successful. NSA did come out for a limited pro- gram of federal aid to education and for the elimination of discrimi- nation on campus. But the sessions spent too much time discussing policies which the preamble to the constitution had already affirmed, instead of implementing these policies by bold political action. 0 Nevertheless, the Heights delegation returned determined to make the year of 1949-50 one of real progress. On the campus level, NSA helped pass an amendment to the Student Council constitution, prohibiting Council from chartering any organization practicing dis- crimination. ln addition, NSA made available a student discount plan to enable Heightsmen to purchase various items more cheaply. 0 On the regional level, the Heights delegation helped investigate many cases of violations of students rights and academic freedom. The delegates voted overwhelmingly to take action to secure the defeat of the Feinberg Act and other bills designed to create an atmosphere of fear in the classroom. But other measures did not re- ceive such forthright action from NSA. The region did not endorse the specific legislation before Congress on federal aid to education, and even the Heights delegation was split on the question of the danger of federal control. 0 The future of NSA as viewed in 1950 depends entirely on the attitudes of the students. If too many dele- gates continue to be of timid heart or to treat the organization as an unimportant body, then NSA will end in stagnation. Only if the delegates and the students they represent make a concerted effort to fight for their ideals, will NSA achieve its promise as an organi- zation that will secure for all students their fundamental rights. ii X QI .Y I p 7 '1 A debate council The 1949-50 edition of the Heights Debate Council displayed a new coach, Mr. John Herder, but the same old winning form. Led by its four officers, President Calvin Leifer, Vice-President Martin Hertz, Secretary How- ard Stave, and Treasurer Robert Witte, the desk-pounders won their share of victories in dual-meet opposition and placed high in three Eastern tournaments. 0 For the first few weeks, particular emphasis was placed on contests with metropolitan rivals over the national topic: Resolved, that the basic non- agricultural industries of the United States be nationalized. Mr. Herder then sent two teams to Vermont for the first major tourna- ment of the year. Leifer and Paul Marks teamed up to beat Rutgers and Penn State, while losing to the host school and Bates College. A second team of Stave and Leonard Klein won three out of four. O After a series of local debates, highlighted by the traditional clash with Fordham, where Yale Kamisar and Leifer lost out by a single point, 27-26, the Council was ushered into its next tournament-at Barnard College. Here, in the first major meet of the spring semester, the issue centered around the barring of Communists from teaching. The Hall of Famers downed John Marshall lNew Jersey State Championl, Columbia, and Pennsyl- vania on the strength of Marks' and Witte's showing. O The Violets demonstrated their considerable depth by throwing still an- other combination, Donald Sloan and James Schlesinger, into still another tournament, at Brooklyn College. Out of four debates, Penn State, Hofstra, and Rensselaer Polytech fell victims to the word-power of the Heights- men, while only Princeton could boast a victory. hazing committee Glib assurances of personal safety by the Hazing Committee, previously taken for iust what they were worth by wary incoming Heightsmen, carried more than a little weight during the revolutionary year of 1949-50. Under the direction of Hazing Masters Paul Marks and Robert Witte, timid high school graduates were no longer paddled unmerci- fully by leering committee members, who sported skull-and-crossbones armbands on their not-so-bulging biceps. O Members of the Class of 1953 enioyed a "Big Brother" relationship with a specially picked group of seniors, including student government lead- ers, men from the publications' managing boards, club officers, and a good proportion of generally active students. In addition to the traditional welcome by Deans Baer and Saville, a two-day orientation period pre- ceding the beginning of classes introduced freshmen to campus life via guided tours, faculty addresses, smokers, and assemblies. The main object of the program was to in- doctrinate the entire class, rather than that usually small segment which attended Fresh- man Camp. 0 The trappings and illu- sions of hazing were not abandoned en- tirely, however, and sophomores returning for the fall semester still claimed for their own the dubious pleasure of verbally tor- menting beanie-clad, handbook-carrying frosh. Songfests were sung, tugs-of-war pulled, and a sufficient number of hazees were tried before Professor Alan Coutts for violations of hazing rules on the knowledge of songs and cheers, and failure to wear the orange-and-violet beanie. 0 All was cli- maxed by the traditional Ducking-Dance, which was the only part of the program nec- essarily excluded from Feb-Sept orientation. Christophero Sly lAllen Weissel reddens his nose, while the Page lMyron Taubel acliusts his girdle. Hast thou beheld a fresher gentlewoman? Such war of white and red within her cheeks!

We shall ne'er be younger. hall of fame players Enthusiasm alone cannot create the complex fabric of a theatrical production, with its costumes, sets, technicians, properties, act- ors, and endless, overpowering detail. There must be many hands to wield brushes, ham- mers, and brooms, as well as effective voices to rattle off mighty lines. 0 The history of the Hall of Fame Players for the past year has been one of expansion from a small, eternally shorthanded group, to a large body of students with interests in every phase of theater-so much more en- thusiastic and closely-knit than before, that the Green Room overflows into the Little The- ater during meetings, and casting has be- come a major screening operation. 0 Not many of the thespians are left out of things, however, for the work has kept pace with the workers, and under the capable direction of theater-bred faculty adviser Mr. Richard Turner, a regular program of one student- supervised invitational series, one maior Lit- tle Theater production, and one maior Chapel production each term, has been adopted. Leading the group of busy undergraduates, Steven Frimmer gave the new schedule its initial shove during the fall semester, and Allen Weisse assumed vigorous leadership in the second half of the year. 0 The first faint cries of the new Hall of Fame Players were heard when Green Room society mem- bers decided, in October, to consult the stu- dent activities office files and invite all Heightsmen with records of previous expe- rience in dramatics and related fields to "look the group over." Many of the new- comers were immediately put to work in the first Invitational of the year, and the second such entertainment in Famers' history. Mono- logues and excerpted scenes from plays mt fir N2 Right true it is, your son Lucenlio here Doth love my daughter and she loveth him, Or both dissemble deeply their affections. were presented before a select audience, and on the basis of those performances, the maior fall term production, "The Taming of the Shrew," was cast. 0 Twenty-seven characters in the company of "Shrew," and an army of technical men, are indicative of the present number of active Heights actors and builders, and although a good many of the names in the acting and backstage sec- tions of the group would be repeated in ac- counts of the spring productions, their posi- tions often reversed. ln this way the versa- tility of each member was utilized. 0 Fred Burstein handled Petruchio, his first leading role at the Heights, and such veterans as Weisse, Alan Josephson, Robert Youdelman, and Arthur Fisher were right in the spotlight with him. Scintillating right down to the roots, the cast received high acclaim extend- ing even the smallest roles. Jack DePersia's wife, a very real person, saw little of him on the many evenings he was rehearsing for his part as Kate's distraught father. Among others to be heard of again in connection with future top-flight productions, were Mar- shall Stone, Martin Hertz, David Heit, and Martin Heyman. 0 Marvin Gelman, one of the last survivors of the post-war reorgani- zation of the Players, designed imaginative sets, which blended in with the actors' cos- tumes, symbolic of their characters and sta- tions. Julius Davis and Robert Raider di- rected the building of the sets by a hard- working tech crew, and spring saw their promotion to the posts of head technicians, when Gelman was graduated. 0 The spring semester was filled with continual planning and activity. Another Invitational, in the na- ture of an experiment, presented further op- portunity for recruits to demonstrate their talents. Saroyan's "Across the Boards To- morrow Morning," Lord Dunsany's thriller, "A Night at an Inn," and "The Brothers," by Louis Beach, were given arena-style, with the audience seated all around the stage, the floor of the Theater room. O An unprece- dented four changes of scene were required for "Of Mice and Men," the second full- length production, was played to S.R.0. crowds March 2, 3, 4, and 5 in the Little Theater. Three different indoor sets and a beautifully colored, mood-setting outdoor scene formed the background for a round of "Now this is a dress rehearsal. You know your lines by now, but you will have to put life into your actions. Don't be afraid to move your body, act naturally." -Richard Turner Be not too tame neither, but let your own discretion be your tutor. Suit the action to the word, the word to the action, with this special observance, that you o'erstep not the modesty of nature. -Hamlet Well we ain't got no ketchup- Whatever we ain't got, that's what ya want.

And when the end of the month come I could go into town and get whatever l want. stirring performances, topped by Josephson as Lennie and Weisse as George. O On April 28 and 29 the final production of the year, "Grand Hotel" by Vicki Baum, was pre- sented in the Chapel. As usual, Raider and Davis headed the technical crew, along with Arnold Rosenszweig and such assistants as Jordan Fried, Norbert Katz, Gerald Levitt, and Norman Gevirtz. Howard Kalmenson, aided by Richard Glassberg, handled the stage manager's role, while Irving Buchen covered the matter of publicity. Featured in the pro- duction were many regulars, and among them were Stone, Hertz, Ephron, Arthur Feld- stein, Harold Goldberg, Henry Werdegar, De- Persia, Earl Hagan, and George Wellworth combining to win the praise of appreciative audiences. ln one of its most active seasons since its founding sixty years ago, the New York Uni- versity Glee Club, under the direction of Professor Alfred M. Greenfield, this year re- gained the polish and precision which had been lacking in the organization since the war. 0 To reach that high point, the week- long tune-up session held iust before the fall semester began, at Pocono Pines, Pennsyl- vania, was used extensively by the seventy assorted basses and tenors in preparing for scheduled concerts. While alternately thaw- ing out stiff limbs and soothing scratchy throats with innumerable lozenges, the sing- ers managed to sandwich in some extra-cur- ricular vocalizing and a last fling at summer sports before heading back to classes. The Glee Club also presented its first concert of the season at the theater in Pocono Pines, with about five hundred people paying their fifty cents to hear the men sing. O After only three weeks of the regular bi-weekly rehearsals, the group presented the earliest opening concert in its history at the Brooklyn Academy of Music on October 18. Appearing with the club was contralto Elsie Learned, who sang the solo part in Brahms' Alto Rhap- sody. Jesse Goldberg, accompanist for the Glee Club, along with Robert Sherman, con- tributed two piano selections to this initial . fc 'Q - 1,i2','ffilE:I':.'io, x , , ., -47':f3-'1'i"I'i.1l:25f:-131. :J 1 1 ,nf .

Next on the schedule for the organization was a concert in Yonkers, on November 4, for the benefit of the Women's Auxiliary of St. John's Riverside Hospital. At that time Helen Marshall was the soprano soloist, ioining the men in two numbers, with Jesse Goldberg again presenting two piano solos. Lending a note of humor and some- thing of nostalgia to the program was the appearance of the Ultra Violet Quartet, sing- ing their travesty on the quartet from Rigo- letto for the last time. O These three con- certs, in addition to the Thanksgiving pres- entation in the Chapel, were in the nature of preparation for the twentieth annual Town Hall concert. After the final extra gloss was put on their numbers, the concert was given on December 10 to an appreciative audience, which included Chancellor Chase and other officers of the university. The occasion marked the twenty-fifth year of Professor Greenfield's service with the club as its conductor. Under his direction the club won a first prize in the Intercollegiate Choral Contest in 'I93l, the last year the competition was held. In rec- ognition of his contributions to the school, Perstare et Praestare inducted Professor Greenfield as an honorary member several days before the concert. 0 That Saturday upon the preparation for a program given in conjunction with the Mount Holyoke Glee Club at South Hadley, Massachusetts. The principal work presented during the two-day collaboration, on April 15 and 16, was the night commemorated another event and the audience honored the Reverend Duncan McP. Genns, composer of Palisades, on the fif- tieth anniversary of its first presentation. 0 During the Christmas season a number of informal appearances were made by the Glee Club, with the major activity a Christmas concert over station WQXR. That was the highlight of the vacation work, but the "elite" division of the club, the twenty-four men of the Chapel Choir, gave several independent performances. Except for the latter group providing entertainment at the sixty-second annual dinner of NYU Law School alumni at the Waldorf-Astoria, January 31, the Glee Club was inactive thereafter until final ex- aminations, when members sang individual tunes over their textbooks. I After the mid-year recess, serious attention centered Faure Requiem, in which NYU forces and the one hundred and thirty girls of the New Eng- land college took part. 0 Rounding out the season for the Glee Club was their spring concert at the Heights and the annual ban- quet to honor distinguished members of their organization. Among those awarded keys and letters for their service were: Moisy Shopper, who took over as student manager when Alfred and Sheldon Gitman resigned, Allen Weisse, publicity manager, voice coach Willard H. van Woert, and student librarian Frederick Woodberry. The Varsity Quartet, listing on its roster Fred Barley, George Lebolt, George Lucas and Francis Sanvito, which had previously won fame as the En- gineers Quartet, was roundly applauded, along with Kenneth Reiss and Gene Hoffman, who were soloists for the club this past year. A2 X ff X f and J- , People expect to have a school band at a football game. Cheerleaders are enough for basketball contests and no one has a band or cheers for a baseball tilt. But fighting songs, alma mater between halves, and a bit of marching while the squad is resting in the locker room seem to be required parts of a football game. 0 Wherever possible, the sixty-five men making up the New York University Band tried to please the custom- ers. The musical ingredient was added, in good force, to the Kings Point, Brooklyn, City, and Fordham clashes, while one-fifth or so of the group travelled down to New Bruns- wick in an attempt to brighten a lost cause, as Rutgers swept over the Violets. U How- ever, the band also came out on the wrong end of the score, for the large and loud Rutgers band, with their scarlet uniforms and all, kept playing across the field at the few, shivering NYU fans, drowning our drums and trumpets in waves of sound. Because of the restrictions within which the organization has to work, and the hurdles to be passed at almost every stride, they do their best and hope to satisfy. O The band is completely an extra-curricular affair, with members re- ceiving no scholastic credit-or even exemp- tion from basic ROTC-for their efforts. Nev- ertheless, many work hard because of school spirit. Conditions are not favorable: weekly practice sessions are held in Shanks, some members having to travel up from the Square colleges to take part, the wardrobe falls short of providing uniforms for every player, and the lack of student encourage- ment plays havoc with morale. I A Com- merce undergraduate, Perry Weinstein, was leader and drum major, under the direction of Mr. Alexander Bernyk, the faculty adviser and unifying force. Special attention was paid to increasing the size of the repertoire and several calls were made for additional players. Plans were discussed to tighten up the band and make its operation more effi- cient, and among these was the idea to in- sist on compulsory attendance. Manager James Cashel and his assistant, Jesse Ferdi- nand, also worked to obtain properly-fitting uniforms, letters for outstanding service, and opportunities to present concerts at the vari- ous colleges of the University. 0 With more freshmen offering their services and a swing to a better grade of football evident, the emphasis for the future has been put on larger turnouts for out-of-town contests, ad- ditional practice to polish rough spots, and improved public relations. And one of these days the NYU band hopes to prove a match for the raucous Raritanmen, or any other con- tenders. g . is .fi In 1948, an ambitious group of students ioined together to form a mock radio sta- tion known as "Radio Palisades." Using a public address system, a single phonograph turntable and one microphone, they broad- cast from a room in Lawrence House to the lounge in the same building. When an in- creasing lack of interest and financial trou- bles caused this venture to close precipitously, several members organized the Radio Work- shop. 0 Using the facilities of Fordham's FM station, WFUV, this society was able to produce its student-written programs of dramas and special formats, and reach a city-wide audience. The purpose of this project was to prepare a core of students who would have experience in college broadcasting. Each semester the Workshop drew up a budget of expenses which would enable the Heights to organize its own radio station. Finally, this year, Student Council appropriated S1500 to build and maintain such a unit on the campus. O Early in October the skeleton engineering staff of the AWorkshop expanded its membership, pre- pared blueprints of the station equipment, and ordered the necessary parts. By early December, WNYU, "the voice of University Heights," began to take operating shape. Under the direction of Melvin Goldberg, sta- tion manager, facilities for broadcasting were set up all over the grounds. O The main studio was set up in the basement of radio station MacCracken, where foot-and-a-half thick concrete walls assured good broadcasting conditions. In the glass-paneled control booth the transmitter and the control console were placed. With three phonograph turn- tables and outlets for three microphone and two remote lines, this board was a distinct improvement over the shaky Radio Pali- sades rig, and the transmitter was set to beam a signal on a frequency of 640 kilo- cycles to the campus and environs. Musical programs were produced in the Brown House Music Studio and sent directly by transmit- ting cable to the MacCracken control point, and dramatic programs were transcribed in the Little Theater for later presentation. ln addition, tape recordings were also made of important Student Council meetings and notable Chapels. With editing, these events were subsequently aired by WNYU. 0 The station began a month of trial broadcast- ing on December 12, 1949. From then until the Christmas vacation, the directors waded through a pile of technical difficulties, but the programming, under the direction of Ronald Saland, was quite complete. An average day's offerings included a campus news feature, a sports report, and some "live" music periods by either the Heights String Quartet, the University Heights Band, or private organizations. Each evening there was an hour of recorded classical music, and the broadcasting day closed with a two- hour disc iockey spot, conducted by "Miser- able Mort" Kramer. 0 As their radio signal was not being received in many parts of the campus, the WNYU engineers had to redesign and then rebuild the transmitter, causing a prolonged period of inactivity. "You're on lhe air . . . yes, the air . . . yes, you... please , . ." "I can'I see how I ever wen! on without you, John . . . my days have been . . ." frosh follies ln the latter days of March many posters were printed, and most of them hung up, with the bright slogan "lt's folly to miss the seventh annual Freshman Follies at Gould Memorial Chapel on April l and 2, l949." The prediction was far from wrong, the motto sold tickets, and even the Heights Daily News reviewer liked what he saw. 0 The traditional spring exhibition of talent originated in 1940, but discontinued during the war, was a fresh composite of comic sketches, musical interludes, and dramatic scenes. Open to men from all classes, the audience was given a large helping of fresh- men, spiced up with the acting work of sophomores, juniors, and seniors, with most of the writing being contributed by upper- classmen. 0 Two skits drew for the most laughs: Mike Taube's pantomime, "The Man Hunt," based on a near-sighted Life article and other incidentals, which included narra- tion by Herbert Bootzin and the great ad- venture in a restaurant, and Larry Vide's multi-monologues played in dexterous style. Vide, announcing himself a last-minute substi- tion for the Heightsters, capered as the mas- ter of ceremonies, in addition. A humorous sketch, burdened with the cute title of "A Marv-lelousl Act," had Marvin Bromberg and Marvin Levy in blackface for some old-fash- f "" i- , L ffii.-2:1272-' l 'I f ff V T -' :ff X 17 H .

Solos by Eugene Hoffman, Martin Rosenberg, George Lucas, and lra Singer were inter- spersed through the evening, the Frosh En- gineer Quartet supplied their strong voices: and, finally, there was the JV Glee Club, some forty strong under the direction of Mr. Edmund Allison, who closed the show with the infectious "Laughing Song." Those who wondered at the pink and purple bow ties worn by most members of the cast, had the mystery cleared up when Mr. Allison ap- peared in a neon neckpiece. Rounding out the musical part of the fare was the instru- mental work of Alvin Kahn, playing Rhap- sody in Blue, Bernard Stier, as piano accom- panist, and Peter Schwartz and his accordion. 0 A surprise feature was an excerpt from "The Scene," acted with high tension by Mr. Richard Turner of the Speech Department and Mrs. Dixie Boulton of the Student Ac- tivities Office. But perhaps even more of a surprise were the "Father and Son" scenes supplied by Jack Singer. Because the cur- tain was not drawn while sets were being moved about, something had to be happen- ing on stage to detract from the sound of scraping chairs and tables. Singer's four- part sketch, enhanced by the almost im- promptu performances of Marvin Levy and Gordon Morris filled the embarrassing un- silences. As English father and son distract- edly attempting to bury grandma, they were hilarious, to put it mildly. O Unable to take bows for their work, there was a large, unsung staff off-stage, which made it pos- sible for those before the lights to be so effective. Minor details, programs, and port- ers were handled by Robert N. Getz as busi- ness manager, with the assistance of Harvey Bezahler. Publicity in the paper was the iob of Ben Altshulerp Richard Stoll was the stage manager, and care of the properties was en- trusted to Dennis Howard. Lighting and am- plification was a service of the Hall of Fame Players. The entire production was directed by Professor Alan Coutts, who montaged talents, tempers and technical matters, and who was able to polish up the package for presentation in less than three weeks. l., w3f"'?' L The sages will tell you that the Heights iust hasn't been the same since February of 1949. It was about that time that telephone operators found their lines to the campus busier than usual, and postmen staggered under brimful sacks of weighty correspond- ence. For it was about that time that social instincts of Heightsmen, previously restricted to fraternity activities and Lawrence House tea dances, began to be directed by organi- zations popularly termed houseplans. The letters that came and went under the watch- ful eye of the newly-chartered Central House Plan Association, arranged for convenient and inexpensive weekend affairs, usually houseplans parties and dances, at strictly nominal rates. And the sages are right-the campus hasn't been the same since. O Interest in house- plans first began to be stirred up here by some far-sighted students who were anxious to broaden their social horizons, and who pointed to the success of houseplans on dozens of other campuses to prove that such an innovation would mark healthy progress at University Heights. At first these proposals met the familiar stone wall of campus apathy, but gradually, as students began to become aware of the possibilities offered by houseplans, support for the by-no-means revolutionary program rallied. The obiections of the more obtuse Student Council repre- sentatives were met and refuted, persist- ently and, finally, successfully. Two unoffi- cial houseplan groups, later to be chartered as Engine House and Yeldem House, spear- headed the attempts at recognition, and sub- sequently became the nucleus of the central association. Working with the aid of several Councilmen, a constitution, drawing upon the experience of the groups already formed here and elsewhere, was written and ap- proved by a comfortable margin at Council. Since that time, the Central House Plan As- sociation, which was formed under the con- stitution, and the individual plans have brought an immensely richer social life to the students of both the Engineering and University Colleges. O Plans operated un- der several restrictions initially imposed by the Council. Functions were limited to eight each semester, and no dances were to be held at school, on Sunday, or at other times when school was in session. Chaperons were to see that affairs ended no later than 1:30 a.m. All regulations applicable to chartered organizations also pertained to the CHPA and the member plans, and only students who paid their dues might officially belong to a houseplan. Council, recognizing the un- fortunate conditions with respect to availa- bility of campus sites for social affairs, ruled that all plan parties and dances must be held off campus. Despite these uncomfortable regulations, the Association and its members A Beat Notre Dame Rally was only one feature of the February dance marking the first anniversary of houseplans on the campus. The dew was falling fast, the stars began to blink, l heard a voice, it said, "drink, pretty creature, drink." -Wordsworth: The Pet Lamb Officers of the CHPA: men who were able to build an organization of powerful social force out of dis- interest and opposed pressures. have managed to function smoothly and efficiently. O Larry Slotkoff, who directed much of the initial strategy of the houseplan movement in its embryonic stage, became the first president of the Central House Plan Association, while the kinetic Norman Sklar was entrusted with the important chairman- ship of the Social Committee. The iob of this committee is to arrange all social affairs run under the name of the organization, commun- icate with other plans throughout the city, and cooperate with campus organizations and activities. Other officers included Jack Haimowitz, secretary, Charles Gursky, treas- urerp and Robert N. Getz, chairman of the Constitution Committee. I Throughout the year meetings were held weekly by the CHPA in the familiar confines of Language 27. Individual plans found that although the constitution called for bi-weekly meetings, current information about weekend socials could be best obtained if representatives gathered every week. To each session, each chartered house was required to send a special delegate, who could speak with au- thority for the group. O At these usually chaotic gatherings the CHPA really got much of its actual work done, although there was always considerable behind-the-scenes ar- ranging that had to be done by Slotkoff, Sklar and Haimowitz. At one meeting, pro and con speeches on the proper method of distribution of tickets and publicity for the big house plan dance were made, and the member plans announced their positions in a roll-call vote. And that decision held. Even more important than the actual discussions in some ways is the collection of money that must take place. Dues of five dollars for each semester are asked by CHPA, and since no money may be obtained from Stu- dent Council for any activities, these dues are the lifeblood of the organization. Any plan that fails to meet the deadline for pay- ment is automatically suspended and not en- titled to participate in any of the social ac- tivities arranged bythe Association. I Per- haps you've never been to a plan affair. Get the picture. You're walking down a dark street looking for the address that was scribbled down by your plan president. You've left the note home, and can't re- member whether it was 1716 or 1617. You tire. You try a house. Bingo! The door opens, and you step into a pleasantly decorated living room filled with pleasantly decorated young people, some of whom are actually from your houseplan. Someone whisks your coat away, and before you know it your mouth is full of potato chips, and your arms full of a blond girl in a green dress who has insisted on dancing with you. And how can you refuse a blond girl in a green dress? Anyway, minutes later, it seems, a plan friend comes over, taps you on the shoulder. and informs you that you-you lucky fel- Houseplans with inspired names and senior mem- bers. Above, BMOC7 on the opposite page, Engine House and Yeldem, the first two to be chartered, and below them, the Men of Leisure and the Adam's Apples houseplans. low-have been selected to enact the inter- esting charade "igIoo." Not too easy, but you have to do it, and anyway the blond is willing to rub noses iust to make it easier for you. lt's late now, and time to shuffle along home with that girl, who, you discover with some mortification, has lived across the street from you for the past eight years. Any questions? O When the first anniversary of houseplans rolled around, everyone con- nected with the movement combined to make the first Central House Plan Association Dance one of the most successful affairs of the entire social calendar. Each member house sent one representative to help the Social Committee. A Beat-Notre Dame Rally was added to the evening's attractions, and on February 24, 1950, a tremendous crowd packed the cafeteria to dance, cheer, and applaud a huge birthday cake. It was a great evening for all concerned, but there must have been many celebrating the success of houseplans who wondered how they might get on the social bandwagon. 0 Actually, noth- ing could be simpler. Students of common interests-perhaps those from the same high school, the same neighborhood, or with sim- ilar school interests-ioin together, and sub- mit a list of members containing at least fifteen names to the Student Activities Office. After securing a faculty adviser, the group presents its "credentials" to the Student Council Charters and Constitution Commit- tee, which then puts its stamp of approval on the organization. And, automatically, the plan becomes a member of the CHPA. 9 Contacts for all social affairs to be run under the aegis of the Association are made by the Social Committee, which functions as the most direct means of communication in the social sphere between New York University and neighboring colleges. Members of the committee spend much of their time care- fully checking lists of names and telephone numbers of girls' houseplans throughout the city. Parties are arranged by phone and mail, but of course, like all the best laid plans of rodents and rascals, gang aft agley. Invitations received from other colleges are distributed equally among the member plans, and in accordance with the Council rule on limitation of functions. Upon receipt of the information concerning the date, time and place of the social, the representative com- municates this essential data to the other members of his group. 0 All messages and information about social affairs are com- municated initially to the Publications Office of the Bell Tower Building, which serves as the center of operations for the Association. Things are crowded-plenty crowded. But somehow the necessary telephone calls are made and received, the important letters are sent out and answered, and the officers of the Association are never too busy to have a quick game of pinochle. At any rate, way back in the minds of CHPA leaders is the dream of someday having an office of their own, and even, eventually, a place on cam- pus for houseplan parties. 0 In addition to coordinating the work of the houseplans on campus, the Central House Plan Associa- tion is itself a member of a coordinating body. The CHPA belongs to the Metropoli- tan Intercollegiate House Plan Council, which regulates and advises various groups in New York City colleges. Regular meetings are held, at which the representatives ar- range for parties, discuss the problems of the intracity organization, and decide on ways and means for successful functioning of socials. The Intercollegiate Council has also taken out an insurance policy to pro- tect the individual plans, and assumes re- sponsibility for any damage that is done at an affair of a member CHPA. O One of the things that does most to attract atten- tion to houseplans is their unusual names. Roadhouse, King's Castle, House of Correc- tion and Penthouse are the somewhat curi- ous appellations preferred by the members of some houseplans. The whimsicality is in- nocent enough, although perhaps occasion- ally distressing to a young lady who must tell her parents that she was at a party with a boy from the house of correction. I At first the Central House Plan Association was under the very careful scrutiny of a Student Council which heaped restrictions upon its operation. Slowly the organization developed under the leadership of really active and ambitious men like Larry Slotkotf and Nor- man Sklar. The number of plans increased, until at last count, if all the members of houseplans were placed end to end, the curious sight would extend approximately from Lawrence House to the new gymnasium. The odds on the success of social affairs got better with each party, as new contacts were developed and old ones strengthened. The Association evidenced its teamwork and eagerness in the success of the First CHPA Dance. Helped by Council's liaison commit- tee, new problems were speedily settled. O Now CHPA stands almost at the very pinnacle of a year-and has proved inexpensive Heightsmen, prestige and popularity, barely -a-half after its shaky start. It that it can provide good and social affairs for hundreds of and at the same time not seri- ously compete with fraternities for members. Despite serious obstacles such as lack of convenient campus facilities, the Central House Plan Association faces future years at University Heights with confidence. lt's here to stay. With the rapid development of the plastics industry and the increasing use of involved processes to produce synthetic drugs and other materials, the value of an organization which could introduce the student engineer to practical problems under conditions as nearly as possible resembling those to be found in the field, was recognized by the Heights chapter of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers. 0 Working closely with faculty adviser Professor Charles J. Marcel, and other members of the Chemical Engineering Department, President Rino Godino planned a program to include the usual number of smokers and films, as well as a more comprehensive field trip than had yet been carried out. 0 An early feature of the year's meetings was a talk by John Crowther, Director of Research with the Stauf- fer Chemical Company. ln discussing the stress placed by industrial concerns on the relative values of scholarship and social at- titude, Mr. Crowther was able to inform members of some of the factors which would have the most influence on their chances aiche when they were looking for employment. 0 Technical methods and product applications were the topics covered by frequent motion pictures, and lectures by leading men in the field supplemented the visual instruction with more concrete information, further examples, and helpful anecdotes. The question and discussion periods following these smoker addresses were felt by most members to be the most valuable, since the closer contact with the speakers usually permitted the clear- ing up of specific difficulties. C During the week preceding the Easter recess, the organization sponsored a trip to Pennsyl- vania in which all senior members partici- pated. Most varieties of chemical establish- ments in the area were visited, to allow the students a look at actual conditions in a plant, and also to observe conditions which could not easily be duplicated in a labora- tory. 0 The field excursion is intended to be the first of a series which, over the years, will take AlChE members to those sections of the country where large-scale concentrations of chemical industries exist. aiee Combining the social significance of their work with the customary technical approach, members of the American Institute of Elec- trical Engineers were able to put through a successful season. The close relationship be- tween the work of this group, under the leadership of Leonard Newman, and that of the Institute of Radio Engineers, allowed the two societies to combine their meetings fre- quently during the year. With the aid of Vice-President Fred Reibert, Newman guided a varied program of lectures, field trips, and motion pictures. O ln a talk by George Rand, expert on ultrasonics, those at the smoker learned about the "lecture room of the future" which was developed at the Heights. A special arrangement of the room permits students to take notes and the lecturer to write on a treated blackboard while films are being shown. Also, a controlled slide proiector was devised which operates by means of an ultrasonic whistle. O The Consolidated Edison Company readily made the group welcome in their Waterside plant, conducting the students on a tour of the building which supplies the busiest part of Manhattan, from 'l4th to 59th Streets, with electricity. O Other large companies, such as General Electric and Western Electric, pre- sented films for the society. The former of- fered "By Their Works," which showed the birth of an idea and its fruition in American industry, while the latter picture, "The Voice Sentinel," described the development of the crystal and showed how its principles were applied to the frequency controls of many channels in a single conductor. I A repre- sentative of the Westinghouse Central Office Division, H. H. Heinns, told the group that "the immediate future need not be dismal if the proper attitude toward industry is adopted." Although the market was crowded, the speaker said good men would be placed and that what was necessary was that gradu- ates more carefully consider first where they were best equipped to work. Speaking on a similar topic, C. M. Burrill of the RCA Labora- tories said that motivation is a great factor when an engineer applies for a job. Both speakers stressed the value of self-appraisal in yielding an all-important confidence. Under the direction of Eugene Jones as presi- dent, and assisted by Daniel Koffler, John Murray and Carmine DeVita, vice-president, secretary and treasurer, respectively, the American Society of Civil Engineers enioyed a year crowded with varied activities. Through a series of smoker meetings to hear speakers, several film presentations, and a social in Lawrence House, the aims of the student chapter-to better inform undergrad- uates as to conditions in the field and to allow members to hear authoritative lectures on special topics-was carried out with a high degree of success. 0 Soon after the beginning of the fall semester, Professor Robert L. Lewis, newly appointed chairman of the department, and Professor Douglas S. Trowbridge, faculty adviser of the organiza- tion, spoke on the purposes, advantages, and future prospects of the ASCE. A few weeks later, the group was privileged to hear Dr. Ole Singstad, a consultant engineer and world-famous tunnel authority, whose ad- dress on "Problems of Tunnel Design and Building" brought heavy questioning and discussion in the smoker period that followed HSCE his talk. O On November 23, a dance in Lawrence House came as a relief from the burden of courses for all, and employment speculations for seniors. 0 Arthur Sheridan, Commissioner of Public Works in the Bronx, was the guest speaker at the next regular meeting of the ASCE. His topic was the new and proposed highway systems in the bor- ough, and he illustrated his talk with dia- grams. To coordinate the information given by the semester's speakers, and also.to sup- plement classwork, two motion pictures, "Collapse of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge" and "Construction of the Pennsylvania Turn- pike" were shown on successive weeks. 0 During the examinations period, the annual convention of the parent ASCE, this year in New York, gave some members an oppor- tunity to sit in on the general meetings, and high points of the spring term were: a lecture by Myles Van Buren of the Turner Construction Company, on contractors' or- ganization, and three field trips-a tour through a coal mine, an inspection of one of Bethlehem Steel's plants, and a trip to the new watershed area in upper New York. HSITIE The profession of mechanical engineering, which today finds expression in so many varied phases of our closely-knit industrial life, is the common meeting ground which brings members of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers together. O Con- tinuing its program of field trips, speeches by various industrial leaders, and films illustrating various aspects of proiects which might interest the student engineer, the or- ganization, under the direction of President Steven Allen, tried to fill gaps in the broader needs of men at the Heights. U As the initial offering in its program, the society featured a Technicolor film entitled "Steel, Man's Servant." For its first smoker, the group invited Robert Reich, chairman of the Edu- cational Guidance Committee of the Metro- politan Section, as guest speaker. This marked a repeat performance by Mr. Reich, who had previously addressed the ASME on "Getting That First Job in lndustry." For the opening field trip of the semester, officers of the group sponsored an inspection tour of the Consolidated Edison plant in mid-town Manhattan, and during the Christmas vaca- tion, another opportunity for comparative ob- servations of industrial methods was given to members, when the society made a series of four trips to manufacturing and process- ing plants in New York and New Jersey. 0 In addition to these essentially technical as- pects of engineering in which members of the group engaged, other facets of the pro- fession were also introduced to the students. At another smoker given during the term, Eugene MacNeice, Quality Director of the Johnson and Johnson Corporation, spoke on the value of continued interest and activity in a professional society to the young grad- uated engineer. 0 The smokers, in con- junction with field trips and films, seek to implement the aims of the ASME, which are: promotion of the art and science of the profession, encouragement of original re- search, the fostering of engineering educa- tion, the advancement of general standards, the sharing of technical experiences, and a broadening of the social usefulness of engi- neering. I The Bristol Pre-Medical and Pre-Dental So- ciety is one of the largest and most active student organizations on the campus. Named in memory of Professor Bristol, former chair- man of the Heights Biology Department, the society performs a twofold function. First, it provides a common ground of interest for pre-medical and pre-dental students, and secondly, it gives these students a wider knowledge of the profession they are enter- ing. These obiectives are accomplished by a series of motion pictures, field trips, and talks by some of the important men in the medical and allied professions. C Each year the schedule begins with a talk by Associate Pro- fessor Carl J. Sandstrom, faculty adviser and Chairman of the Committee on Recommend- ations to Medical and Dental Schools, deal- ing with the most important topic for the society-applications to medical and dental schools. This year Dr. Sandstrom also dis- tributed booklets containing a resume of his talk, as well as a list of the medical schools in the United States and Canada with their bristol yearly enrolment and the number of students accepted from New York State last year. Another high spot was a lecture-demonstra- tion by Dr. Blaise Pasquerelli on hypnosis and its place in the treatment of mental ill- ness. Other noted speakers appearing during the year were pediatrician Arthur Goldfarb, who spoke on the emotional needs of chil- dren, and Dr. Ludwig of the Biology Depart- ment, who talked about the medical aspects of entomology. 0 A clinical aspect of medicine was revealed to the Society in a field trip to the Brooklyn State Hospital, where they witnessed a demonstration of various psychotic maladies. Among the motion pic- tures which the society saw this year were films on psychiatric over-dependency, skin- grafting of war wounds, and a true case of hermaphroditism. 0 Through its many years of service on the campus, the Bristol Society still continues to provide an oppor- tunity for the student to learn more of, and to better appreciate, the medical profession. clraper Student lectures on particular problems in the broad field of chemistry marked a new addi- tion to the activity program of the Draper Chemical Society this past year. Serving the twofold purpose of stimulating student re- search into chemical problems, and attract- ing an audience interested in hearing a Heightsman's discussion of his own work, the lectures were hailed by the seventy-odd members of the organization as a valuable complement to the regular activities spon- sored by the group. 0 Irving Broad ini- tiated the new series with a talk on "Polaro- graphy," and was followed by, among oth- ers, William Redanz, speaking on "Polariza- tion andthe Carl Fisher Titration," and Arnold Blanck, who discussed "Experiences in In- dustry and Chemistry." 0 Designed to "foster an interest in chemistry and to serve as a center where undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty may convene to discuss matters of common interest in this field," the Draper Chemical Society flourished through- out both terms under the chairmanship of Jerry Edelman. Club members met regularly on Tuesday of every week to hear lectures delivered by faculty members or prominent outside specialists, to see films, and to hold discussions under the guidance of one of their own group, in addition to hearing the lec- tures by Heightsmen already mentioned. One of the talks by members of the Heights Chem- istry department faculty was delivered by Edward Milch, who discussed attainment and measurement of low pressures. C Two smokers were held by the society each term. At the first affair in November, Dr. Foster Dee Snell, one of the leading analytical chemists in the country, spoke on the advisability of pursuing a career in consulting chemistry. President of a firm of consulting chemists and a member of the advisory board of the New York University industrial research pro- gram, Dr. Snell carefully analyzed for the members both the advantages and draw- backs of the field. O Working hard with President Edelman to make the year success- ful were Vice-President Melvin Goldberg, Secretary Jack Offenbach, and Treasurer Wil- liam Redanz, In order to attract a more active member- ship, this year the Huntington Hill Historical Society completely eliminated the honorary features in its constitution so that any stu- dent might ioin. Under the leadership of James Schlesinger, Robert Weingarten and Maximilian Kobryner, president, vice-presi- dent and secretary, respectively, both the number of lecturers and the scope of their talks were enlarged. 0 Most of the ad- dresses centered around the general subiect of the relationships between history study and other fields of intellectual activity. How- ever, there was space for talks on aspects of American development and culture. Speak- ers were recruited from the Heights faculty, with emphasis on instructors in English, his- tory, and the social sciences. O Professor Wesley F. Craven utilized his field of speciali- zation, Early American History, when he chose the sixteenth century artist, John White, as the subiect of the first lecture. His talk was followed by that of Professor Gis- bert H. Flanz of the political science faculty, who inaugurated the maior series. Two other hill members of the history staff were heard by the group during the remainder of the first semester: Assistant Professor Joseph Reither speaking on "How Historians Have Looked at Contemporary History, Past and Present," and Professor Bayrd Still on the practical topic, "What Can Be Done With a History Maier." O In the spring term, Mr. Robert Thomas of the History department gave a lecture, with musical accompaniment, on the growth of America as reflected in folk songs. Also heard from were a member of the sociology faculty, an English professor, and an economics instructor, and the series was carried on in the second half of the year by other speakers. O Another field of ac- tivity for members was the collection of immigration data, in the form of letters, documents, and other pertinent papers. In this way they carried forth a proiect begun the previous year, looking forward to the eventual development of a permanent ex- hibit on immigration, which will be presented to the University. lt is expected that the ma- terials will be ready within five years. ias The Institute of Aeronautical Sciences lists some four thousand students as members, in sixty colleges and universities in the United States, although the profession is one of the newest branches of engineering. Established on the campus in 1932, for the purpose of interchanging technical ideas among aero- nautical engineers in this country and abroad, the Heights chapter was guided this year by Professor Frederick K. Teichmann, one of the original founders, as faculty ad- viser, and Robert McCormick as president. 0 An important point in the series of smokers and pertinent films, was reached when Norman Shapter of the Civil Aeronau- tics Association spoke on "Airline Structure and Mechanical Problems," although this was only one part of an informative year for the members. 0 Patterned after the Royal Aeronautic Society of Great Britain, which had been engaged in rendering vari- ous services to the growing aircraft indus- try in that country, the American national organization carries out several activities de- signed to help further research and develop- ment, 0 Among these aids are the pub- Iishing of the magazines, Aeronautical Sci- ences, The Aeronautical Engineering Review, and the Aeronautical Engineering Catalog, which are utilized for the distribution of in- formation about advances in the profession. In addition, in an effort to make current knowl- edge readily available to the student and to the engineer in industry, it also maintains a library, a museum collection, and an archive for the use of its members. 0 At intervals, branches of the Institute elect honorary mem- bers into the society, and among these have been such men as General James Doolittle, the inventor of the helicopter, Igor Sikorsky, and the late "Hap" Arnold. Awards are fre- quently presented by the IAS to outstanding technical officers in the Air Force for con- tributing to scientific endeavor in the fields of medicine and meteorology as applied to the needs of aviation. O The Institute is also active in increasing the lay pubIic's appreci- ation of the value of aviation to commerce and national welfare, and their understand- ing of the problems faced by research men in aeronautics. Serving the needs and interests of the large number of pre-law students on campus, the John Marshall Society, headed by President Howard Sieven, this year conducted an in- formative series of talks by qualified teach- ers and educators, to acquaint Heightsmen with the training of lawyers in various coun- tries. O At the same time, an important accomplishment was marked with the acquis- ition of a complete set of catalogues from law schools throughout the country. These catalogues have been filed with the Library for use there by the students. O Among the speakers in the series on comparative lawyer training were Professors Thomas R. Adam and Gisbert Flanz, both from the University College, and George H. Williams, Assistant to the Dean of the New York University Law School. After Professor Adam had discussed the training of an English lawyer, and Pro- fessor Flanz had analyzed the system in European law schools, Mr. Williams traced important problems in the training of the American law student. 0 In the spring semester a trial was held in moot court, of marshall a student accused of broadcasting informa- tion of dubious validity to the campus and without the required permission of the ad- ministration. The manufactured case, involv- ing most of the members in one role or another, had the facuIty's cooperation, and the defendant was finally acquitted by a 'Supreme Court.' I Other activities of the group were participated in with great en- thusiasm by Marshall members. In November over twenty members of the club were seated "up front" in the Bronx County Court House, in order to watch the details of law in an important murder trial. Leo Silverstein and Leonard Klein represented the society in a debate with Tau Kappa Alpha, the national honorary forensic society, on the question of the advisability of federal regulation of the divorce problem. At other meetings the mem- bers heard Martin Hertz discuss the aptitude test required for admission to many law schools, and Professor E. C.

Movies SHE A merger in 1916 of three groups specializ- ing in the study of self-propelled vehicles marked the birth of the Society of Automo- tive Engineers, an organization that takes pride in its record of thirty-four years spent in the service of young engineers. U Guided in its activities by President Steven Allen and Vice-President Robert McCormick, the first smoker of the year heard Edward Metcalf, chairman of the Student Department of the society, invite all members to attend the Metropolitan Section meetings at the Hotel Statler. Mr. Metcalf also outlined plans for special attention to student members, and described the SAE Employment Service as a vital organ of the society that facilitates the securing of employment for senior members, by publishing name and qualifications of iob-seeking students in a bulletin distributed to some 600 prospective employers. Mem- bers also receive a letin distributed by program of special pertinent films was attendance of men "Position Available" bul- the organization. O A addresses, smokers, and often highlighted by the famous in the engineer- ing field. William Ball, assistant sales direc- tor of the Ethyl Corporation and graduate of MIT, explained engine economy, fuel ratings, and self-ignition in internal combustion en- gines. The chief industrial engineer of Syl- vania Products, William Engstrom, stressed the importance of an all-around competence on the part of the industrial engineer in multi-plant operations, in a speech before the society. Mr. Engstrom indicated that a desirable balance of ability involved being able to do one thing well, in addition to a realization of the capabilities and impor- tance of other operations involved in the manufacture of a product. O One of the most interesting of the films shown by the SAE as part of its program in illustrating industrial methods wherever possible, de- picted the development and construction of prepared by the Aluminum Corporation of America were also shown, and included topics concerning the manufacture of the light metal, and aluminum products and their application in various fields. Officers of the Society for the Advancement of Management successfully emulated the worthy efforts of their predecessors by once again earning the society the thanks of stu- dents and faculty alike for their presentation of a novel and varied program for the '49- '5O year. 0 President Steven Purcell and Vice-President Franklin White brought the planned series of addresses to a more per- sonal level that permitted a freer discussion period between audience and speaker by emphasizing talks by students who had gained managerial experience. The first of the series was given early in January when senior Robert Frankel described "Industrial Engineering in Hotel Management." Variance of the program was effected by arranging for talks from faculty members and other prominent persons who have distinguished themselves by work done in the field of man- agement, in addition to pertinent films shown at regular intervals throughout the year. 0 Captain Elliot Ranney of the United States Naval Reserve, a member of the Industrial War College, spoke on the latest organiza- tional setup of the national defense and dis- SBITI tributed reports on the "economic mobiliza- tion" efforts. Capt. Ranney's former position as sales engineer for the Roxanna Petrol Corporation enabled him to deplore elfusively the huge waste of "potential economic re- sources" in the last war. I Herbert Lynch, a research worker in the time-study field presently conducting an experimental proiect at NYU in an effort to standardize the rating of time studies in present-day industry, de- scribed the systems and methods of time studies which are in common use, and also related the results of his own investigations at the Heights. O To supplement his lec- ture, Lynch showed a series of movies which will be used by industrial organizations for adapting and comparing time-study methods for practical use. The forty members present were asked to rate the operation techniques presented in the film, and surprisingly, the results determined by them compared favor- ably with the statistical results already com- puted. At a later meeting a film was shown which traced the production of steel from the extraction of iron ore, through the blast furnace, and into the finished mold. UEC Enlarging the scope of its activities under the talented leadership of Alan Breslau, the Undergraduate Engineering Council enioyed what was probably the most successful year since it was founded. Only reactivated in 1948 after a temporary suspension in 1945, the UEC increased the importance of its op- erations to every student in the College of Engineering by diverse projects. 0 Most worthwhile of the advancements secured was the institution of iob resume books for seniors. A thousand of these books from each department of the college were pub- lished and distributed to business concerns and maior industries over a wide geographi- cal area. Each senior participating in the plan paid the cost, limited through a large response to twelve dollars, of having a page printed to list his employment qualifications. O An innovation fostered by a desire to prove that Engineers are not merely slide- rule technicians, was the UEC Art Show, which opened on January 6. Numerous ex- hibits, divided into the five categories of fine arts, architecture, modelling, photogra- phy, and graphic arts, lined the walls and spread over the tables in the Bell Tower Lounge. Several prominent individuals judged the creations after they had been on display for a few days. O ln its role as an ad- visory body to the faculty, the UEC made curriculum suggestions, some of which were approved by the administration. Among those still under consideration are requests to dismiss graduating seniors from taking finals, to eliminate end-term examinations in laboratory classes, and to increase the course of study to five years, so that more general and cultural electives may be added. O Other activities included additional work on the faculty rating forms first devised by the UEC, assistance to Student Council in the redecoration of the Lounge, further sugges- tions to improve student-faculty relations and scholastic guidance, and planning for the Technifrolic, scheduled for the following year. In all, the UEC paid attention to new ideas and proposals, then the body met to discuss and develop these schemes into useful and workable measures. Believing that war has never been pre- vented on any social level except by govern- ment, the United World Federalists have been in existence for three years. Knowing that no government presently exists on a world scale, they would transform the United Na- tions into an organization with power to enact, interpret, and unfold world law with a jurisdiction binding on individuals, but not extending to the domestic affairs of any nation. 0 The immediate goals of the Fed- eralists are a declaration by the United States of its willingness to enter a federal world government, and the development of an in- ternational environment favorable to the es- tablishment of better East-West relations and of world government. O Hearings were held in October on a concurrent resolution lHCR 64l proposed by more than one hun- dred members of both houses of Congress, which states that it should be a fundamental obiective of our foreign policy to support the United Nations and to "seek its development into a world federation open to all nations, with defined and limited powers adequate uwf to preserve peace and prevent aggression through the enactment, interpretation and enforcement of world law." For the Heights chapter of the United World Federalists, the year began with the sending of a five-man delegation to the national meeting at Cleve- land. There they initiated a platform favor- ing increased support to socialized welfare agencies of the United Nations. 0 On Oc- tober 24, United Nations Day, and in line with the national resolution, the Heights group conducted a campaign for the UN International Children's Emergency Fund. Later, in an attempt to stimulate campus in- terest in international affairs, freshmen were polled in English classes to find out whether they thought anything constructive could be achieved. During World Government Week in March, the Federalists continued this proi- ect, along with a concerted drive for mem- bers. Other components of the drive were discussion groups held throughout the week and speeches in Chapel by prominent Fed- eralists. jcf The calendar of events for the Jewish Cul- ture Foundation this year can be broken down into the three general classifications of social, cultural, and educational. 0 As part of the cultural program a series of dis- cussions and seminars were held on the con- temporary development of Jewish life and customs. Opening this phase of the club's activities was a talk by Burt Rosenberg of the American Zionist Youth Commission, on the topic "Zionism on Campus." This was followed by a symposium on a trip made to Israel last summer by three Heightsmen, Jerome Lefkowitz, Eugene Stollman and Mar- tin Taft, as part of a contingent who went to study and work in the new republic. 0 During the first semester, a large turnout heard one of the leaders of Ethiopian He- brews in the United States, Rabbi W. A. Matthew, speak on the relationship of African Jewry to world Jewry, and the next two speakers dealt with different aspects of lsrael needs: Boris Yavitz, of the Economic Department of the Jewish Agency for Israel, on technical and engineering positions, and the executive secretary to the Medical Ref- erence Board of Hadassah, Dr. Joseph Hirsh, on medical problems and opportunities. 0 Classes in the Hebrew language, conducted in the late afternoons during the week and offered free by the JCF as a service to all interested students, met with a good re- sponse from the campus, and made up the educational category of the year's work. O ln the field of social activities, there was the traditional Columbus Eve dance opening the season, followed in three weeks by an- other traditional affair, the Election Eve dance. Both were highly successful, drawing overflow crowds which taxed the available facilities. The crowded spring calendar saw a dance to celebrate the Purim holidays and one to mark the beginning of the observance of Passover week. Later in the semester, a semi-formal affair was held in one of the hotels. 0 Stuart Nelson served as presi- dent, with Morris Halpern as vice-president, and Rabbi Henry Arrow, faculty adviser. Meeting weekly in Nichols 'l04, and later in Butler Annex, the Heights Newman Club was unusually active on the campus this year. Early in October a smoker, and later a dance, were held successfully in Lawrence House. Also, the several speakers who came to ad- dress the organization at its regular meetings showed the forceful and instructive qualities of their personalities. 0 Among these speakers were: Robert Ludlow, of The Catho- lic Worker, who discussed aspects of federal aid to education, especially on the collegiate level, Mr. James Welch, instructor in the English Department and leader of the in- creasingly prominent Welch Chorale, who gave an extensive lecture on Gregorian Chant, and the Graduate Manager of Ath- letics, Bing Miller, who disclosed "inside in- formation" on the state of football at NYU to the members and an overflow crowd. Other activities included a talk by a staff member of Integrity and a dance at the end of the first semester. 0 The second term saw the Newman Club sponsoring a smoker TIEWITIBII to introduce the February-September class to religious life at the Heights. Earlier, at the first meeting after the recess, Feb-Septs at- tending made the acquaintance of the club members, were told of the group's work and purposes, and were then invited to ioin the organization. 9 The speaking schedule during the spring session was as extensive as during the first half of the year. Some of the men heard by the club included Father Keogh, club chaplain, Professor of English Richard D. Mallery, and Professor E. C. Smith, Social Sciences chairman. Discussions were held, centering around the relation of world affairs and the American society to the Catholic student and to students at large. O In March a dance was held at the Holy Spirit Parish House and, throughout the year, members were busy compiling material for Crux, the club quarterly. Newman activities were led by: Dennis Howard, retiring presi- dent, Phil Salvatti, the new president, Steven Skratt, vice-president, Theodore Stahl, secre- tary, and Joseph Corrigliano, treasurer. ymca An overflow crowd iammed the Lawrence House Lounge this year to hear the star sec- ond baseman ofthe Brooklyn Dodgers, Jackie Robinson, describe his start in organized baseball and answer direct questions on all phases of the sport. This activity was spon- sored by the Heights Young Men's Christian Association, formerly known as the Heights Christian Association, and is one of the rea- sons why the club deserved its greatly suc- cessful year on campus. O Led by their youthful faculty adviser, George Jaynes, YMCA members participated in a wide se- ries of activities, and this year for the first time adopted a policy of holding coedu- cational membership meetings every week with their sister group at Hunter College. O Among the interesting talks heard by the group were addresses on communism in China, the work of the World Student Service Fund, the mayoralty campaign of last No- vember, and life behind the iron curtain, the latter delivered by a Lithuanian national. O At a frosh smoker colored slides were shown of the Holiday Hills YMCA camp at Pawling, New York, and three weekends were spent at this camp by the Heightsmen,together with the Hunter Christian Association. 0 One of the most appealing activities of the entire year was a special Christmas party held in Lawrence House for twenty-five displaced children from Europe. The children saw a puppet show, participated in party games, and received presents from Santa Claus. 0 Also on the social calendar of the group were a frosh welcome dance, a football dance, a Christmas affair, and theater parties. Viewed by members on Broadway were "The Father," "Detective Story," and "Kiss Me, Kate." A special "Hard Times Dance" closed out the first term's activities, and dances were held thereafter about once a month on special occasions such as Easter. I YMCA fol- lowers were also encouraged to participate in the many activities conducted this year by the Interfaith Council. Members of the group all joined in hailing the frequency, in- terest, and originality of the social events conducted under Mr. Jaynes' friendly di- rection. lawrence housei lts red brick, three-story facade mellowed by the winds, snows, rains,.and sunny days of time, and clinging tenaciously to the weather-beaten sign above its doorway, Lawrence House, the Student Activities Cen- ter at University Heights, remains an invit- ing "home away from home." Situated on Sedgwick Avenue iust off the campus, the Tudor style structure faces the broad lawn rolling down from MacCracken, and turns its back upon the sluggish, smoke-hazed Har- lem River. I Now twenty-two years one of the University buildings, there has hardly been a schoolday since it was purchased, when one event or another was not being held somewhere in the house. The four years O W 0 zftl ? T5 T Q li 1? 0 s QW. If 6999 0 QQQQQ Gif .go 0 f since 1946 have exacted their toll with the complete impartiality peculiar to time alone, but the frame remains strong enough to sup- port three tloors of activity from early in the morning, when the News men arrive, until late in the evening, when the last smoker guest or dancer has softly shut the door be- hind him. l There are two main reasons for Lawrence House continuing its popular- ity with Artsmen and Engineers: Mr. and Mrs. P. A. Porteous, the kindly host and host- ess for more years than they will admit to. The services provided in the building depend on their attention, and they are unceasingly at the call of students who need a key to a meeting-room or a quick lunch or a ping pong ball or other countless aids to relaxa- tion and extra-curricular learning. 0 The increase in the number of organizations and social affairs since the end of the war has resulted in every square foot of the house being put to use. On the ground floor is the main lounge, which is, variously, the audi- torium for smokers and lecturers, a ballroom for regular Friday afternoon dances and spe- cial evening ones, and a study hall and game room during most of the day. There, com- fortable leather chairs, a well-pounded array of sandwiches, pies, and beverages are spread out for the selection of the more than one hundred men who eat in Lawrence House daily. A single, shaky ping-pong table is the only recreational facility offered downstairs, and many dally over lunch until their turn "at bat" comes up. I Up above the lounge are two floors of offices and a secondary lounge. Two years ago, all the publications had headquarters in Lawrence House, but now only the Heights Daily News and Quad- rangle turn out copy from 2205 Sedgwick. Along with the engineering magazine, the piano, a new radio-phonograph, chess and checker sets, and a stock of popular maga- zines keep students occupied and the air noisy. 0 When the weather permits in fall and spring, the French doors leading to the porch are thrown open, and most students move out there to continue their conversa- tions and keep at the textbooks, finding the view of the Palisades sentimentally condu- cive to study or talk. 0 Below all this activ- ity is the Cabin Room, reached by a crazy, narrow, crooked flight of stairs. Mrs. P. A. serves lunch beginning at noon, and a good I third floor is shared by the Jewish Culture Foundation, the Newman Club, Alpha Phi Omega's den, and the YMCA clubroom. From two crowded rooms on the second floor one of the few college dailies in the country keeps lights on, typewriters working until six and seven at night, and the YMCA has its executive office on the same story. 0 Dis- turbing the smooth run of days this year, was a prolonged interruption of lunchroom serv- ice, as the administration installed new equipment for the preparation and handling of food. And the path to the kitchen was blocked for several weeks, confusing and disappointing its regular visitors. Another in- cident which discomfited many, occurred during a Friday dance, when a fur coat was left too near an electric light in the upstairs hall. Heightsmen and girls swarmed out of the building in unexplained haste, baffling P.A. and the Lawrence House Committee, and making that afternoon the only social failure in a long schedule. 0 P.A., in his spare time, was busy shaking hands with gradu- ates who had returned to talk over those days when he chided them for dashing through the halls and keeping from studies, congratulated them on awards, and pushed them into meetings to which they should go. Alumni doctors were privileged visitors, and the amiable host introduced them around as proof that some pre-meds did succeed. 0 P.A. did not forget the undergraduates, how- ever. Always ready to discuss the many careers he had, he also stood prepared to distribute tickets to off-campus dances, sell tickets to Hall of Fame productions and the big Heights affairs, and forget his selling to help students with problems. In the years to come, he will welcome back many current citizens who return to visit. O Until that time when a Student Union building opens its doors to provide space for every society and offices, services, and auditoriums, Law- rence House, although now too small for men who continue to establish new extra-curric- ular functions, will remain the central loca- tion for the important and enjoyable activi- ties that take place after classes. Directing the weekly dances, keeping track of game sets and magazines, and super- vising the merriment at the Christmas Party are the activities which keep the dozen-odd men of the Lawrence House Committee busy on and around the premises of 2205 Sedg- wick. Chaired by Daniel Shargorod, the social body was assisted by P. A., of course, Leon- ard Barkin and Andrew Blanck, each vice- chairman for one semester, and Herbert Ruzinsky, as dance chairman. Those Friday afternoon dances! Everyone whirling around, music in the air, smiles and continual activity. From three to dark, the men adjust their ties, straighten their jackets, and step into the maze of dancers looking for a partner. From three to dark, girls from the neighboring colleges and high schools within walking distance come to Lawrence House, in search of a pleasant afternoon away from just talk and sitting. Everyone enjoyed and remembers and waits for Friday. christmas party Spiced cider helps, and there are petit fours. All griev- ances-and the praise-you saved from late Sep- tember to today may be aired. Before, when the gifts are all tendered, there are questions, compari- sons, and also chess games. Faculty and students join under a holly wreath. Afterwards, upstairs, seated and smiling, the deans and professors re- ceive their gifts-aids to a busy housewife, a minia- ture cowboy, a campus policeman, and occasionally a tired instructor. Bl11S Faced with decreasing opportunities in the field, the American Meteorological Society gave its attention this year to a thorough investigation of the employ- ment situation. ln an address, Dr. Jerome Spar of the Engineering faculty sug- gested that the intention of the group should be to demonstrate to industry that increased efficiency would follow the hiring of meteorologists. Senior Harold Scott told of his experiences as a consultant in various businesses. Stanley Greenfield was the acting president of the group. lt was not until the spring semester that the Arts and Letters Society began to hold regular meetings. However, during that time lectures and informal discus- sions were given by several of the men in the English department, as well as by student members. The subjects covered modern literature, drama, music, experimental films, and the philosophy of art. Although membership was small, enough undergraduate students took part in its activities to insure the society's continuance. l letters ainnne alca n Organized to benefit those students interested in communications and pho- tography, the Armed Forces Communications Association was led by William Bocchino as president. During the year several speakers were heard on technical aspects of the field, and representatives of the group were at the Third Naval District Ofl'icer's Club in Brooklyn for an address by Admiral Kinkaid. As in the past, the club awarded a medal to the outstanding Signal Corps cadet officer at the ROTC Field Day ceremonies. Successful in their efforts to persuade the faculty to include a metallurgy option in the engineering curriculum, a group of students at the Heights, who had taken a maior part in the campaign, banded together to form the American Institute of Mining and Metallurgical Engineers at the beginning of the fall semester. A novel program under the leadership of President Julius Lifl' and Vice-President Robert Franzini afforded members an opportunity to hear distin- guished metallurgists, and to attend the American Institute of Mechanical Engineers convention. ans bb ierome schwartzbaum, carl tannert 0 co-captains. Capping off an otherwise unsuccessful season with a fine upset win over their traditional rivals, the slide-rule hoopsters of the College of Engineering, the Art Basketball Team again showed the effects of not having a permanent and convenient place in which to practice. Led by Carl Tannert, Jerome Schwartz- baum, Marvin Brodsky, and Lawrence Slotkolt, the Artsmen were something less than terrifying as they clearly indicated that talent alone is not enough to win trophies. With Mr. William Davis as faculty adviser, the Chamber Music and Lieder So- ciety, formed in the fall of 1949, held numerous meetings to hear rare record- ings, and outstanding student musicians were given an opportunity to perform for the members. The fear that such a group would have only restricted appeal was unrealized, for the meetings were well-attended and well-appreciated. William Drucker led the organization of the society from the beginning, and served as president. Heder classical Aristophanes' masterpiece, "The Clouds," in the first outdoor production of a play at the Heights, was presented 'by the ambitious members of the Classical Society this year, as the latest in their series of amateur revivals of Greek and Roman classics. Rounding out the group's activities, planned by President Fred Schult, Jr., and other officers, were trips to the Cloisters and Metropolitan Museum of Art, and lectures by club and faculty members on various phases of classical civilization. Meeting infrequently during the year and handicapped by the lack of suffi- cient reserve depth, the Chess Club was unable to enter intercollegiate compe- titions. However, under the direction of Paul Pressman and Martin Capell, split- ting the presidency during the year, the members were still able to develop their skill by intra-club contests. On several occasions the demonstration board method was used to illustrate classic and recently evolved plans of attack and defense. chess deutscher The annual continuation of Assistant Professor Robert Fowkes' talk on his stu- dent days in Germany will be remembered longest among the activities of this year's Deutscher Verein. Next in order of general popularity was a Bierfest held in late spring. A panel discussion on "Forces in the New Germany" attracted the interests of students outside the society, as well as that of members. The officers were: Walter D'Ull, president, Anton Spiro, vice-president, and Howard Golden, secretary. A detailed questionnaire and a screening interview were part of the procedure Heightsmen had to go through before the Date Bureau would open its files of dateable females in the city's colleges to applicants. Reorganized this year under the direction of Everett Balsam, the bureau early contacted similar agen- cies in all metropolitan schools and made its operation more efficient, with the result that the office in Gould Hall was kept busy filling urgent requests en- tered by many students-male and female. date lairchild F engineers bb Taking third place in the intra-University league, the Engineering Basketball Team rolled over the difficult obstacles imposed by the lack of a practice gym- nasium and the fact that no regular coach was assigned to the squad. Among the defeats suffered by the club, ably coached by Walter Warren, was one to the Arts quintet, and a one-point heartbreaker to Washington Square. Manny Doppelt, Richard Rothjens, and John Rozmus were consistent team leaders throughout the year. Putting a greater emphasis on practical work the past year, the Fairchild Sociological Society gave its members an insight into the various aspects of the subject. Classroom theory yielded to hard reality as the society conducted its own research programs, the most notable of which, a miniature Kinsey report on a campus scale, was tabbed a "Rating and Dating" survey. ln addition, the society investigated the practicability of an honor system at the Heights. A "meet-your-faculty" afternoon smoker opened this year's activities of the Alexander Hamilton Commerce Society, as part of the society's integrated pro- gram of guiding the outlook of Heightsmen who plan to enter business. Later in the year, lecturer and businessman Dr. Alfred Gross spoke to the future entrepreneurs on morality in selling. In addition to hearing this and similarly instructive talks by leading businessmen, Hamilton members, led by President David Goldman, made a field trip to Macy's department store. The primary aim of the Heights Management Association this year was to familiarize its members with the qualifications sought by the prospective em- ployer when interviewing applicants. President Alvin Daniels worked closely with Robert Haklisch, director of the Heights Employment Bureau, in designing this program. Organized for those students interested in the fields of manage- ment, finance and production, the club has also instituted a guidance program for Heightsmen who want adequate course preparation for their chosen pro- fession. hma hamiHon helghtsters A group of students who are professional musicians, the Heightsters are fre- quently called upon to provide music to dance to at campus socials. This year, one of their most noteworthy "stands" was the houseplan dance in February. With a large repertoire of popular tunes and light classics, they are able to change mood at request and swing from a samba to even a waltz, if ordered. Arnold Greenglass was the leader of the practiced band. Under the leadership of Mr. Alexander Bernyk, the Heights Symphony Orches- tra finally reached the end of the long uphill climb it began at the end of the war. Regular rehearsals of the small group were held in preparation for the annual performance in the Chapel and for other public and radio concerts, in- cluding one on WNYC in the spring. ln consideration of the difficulties raised in organizing and training an orchestra on the campus, the full extent of their accomplishment may be realized. symphony independent The Independent Youth was formed in the fall of 'I949 to present Hundogma- tized" political education to the students, bringing out facts without any par- ticular party slant. Their largest campus-wide event, a mayoralty election forum held in the Chapel, featured speakers representing all three contesting parties. During the year, the group, under the leadership of Edward Silver, held debates and discussions among themselves which covered a wide range of current events topics. Under the guidance of Dr. William H. Stahl as faculty adviser, the Herschelian Astronomical Society carried through a checkered year, extending its field of operations to neighboring colleges and astronomical laboratories. Among the speakers were Dr. Willy Ley, a pioneer in rocket research, and Professor Yale Roots of the faculty. ln addition, a delegation was sent to the Swarthmore Observatory, the group examined the spectroscopy laboratory in Language Hall, and added to the store of telescopic equipment in MacCracken. herscheliar ire interfaith A program of ioint smokers between the Institute of Radio Engineers and the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, which concentrated heavily on dis- cussions of future employment prospects, also afforded members of the IRE opportunities to hear such prominent speakers as George M. Rand, electronic expert, B. James Ley of the NYU Electrical Engineering Department, and Renato Contini and Winthrop Sullivan of the NYU Research Division. Members of the Institute also took a conducted tour to the Consolidated Edison electrical plant. Operating to integrate the activities of campus-the Jewish Culture Foundation, the Newman Club, and the Heights YMCA-the Interfaith Council presented, Dance in the Commons, with 'Two Gun' supplying the music. During the holiday was given, and the audience heard Mr. James B. Welch of the English Depart- ment discuss the significance of the two celebrations. the three religious organizations on as its maior social function, a Barn Fonty and his Montana Serenaders season, a Chanukah-Christmas party irc Formerly given to student discussion of current world affairs, this year the officers of the International Relations Club decided to broaden the base of the group and make its special interest the diplomatic service, so that members might learn how to prepare for government work. A speaker from the U. S. Foreign Service and several representatives from consulates located in the city were heard. Mimeographed papers, among them an appraisal of the Tito- Stalin controversy, were published during the year as a campus service. The Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship, an organization which had its beginnings in English universities, and which afterwards was established throughout the British colonies, Europe, Asia and the Western Hemisphere, is an evangelical grouping of Protestant students on the campus. Earle Woodberry and Edwin Kellner, president and vice-president, respectively, have directed the members towards their aim of applying the tenets of Jesus Christ to daily affairs and problems. fellowship jazz After two full years at the Heights, the Jazz Society is really "in the groove." The thirty-odd hipsters originally intended to hold weekly meetings where the members could spin their favorite iazz recordings and hold informal dis- cussions on styles, technical aspects, and the performing artists. However, when WNYU took to the air, the club also decided to sponsor a disc jockey program to play representative hot discs for the delectation of the listening public. With the cooperation of an active membership, President Eugene Scancarelli and Vice-President Norman Anton Spiro led the Italian Culture Society through a season that included the showing of two imported films, discussions of con- ditions in Italy, ioint meetings with other romance language clubs, and a talk by students who travelled in Italy during the summer. Also considered were plans for enlarging the number of courses offered by the department and increasing the emphasis on the spoken language. italian keynesian Led by Lewis Benatar, the Keynesian Economics Society enlarged its member- ship and expanded the year's program to include a provocative series on comparative economic systems. ln addition to regular talks, Professors Harmon Chapman and Gisbert Flanz spoke on succeeding weeks on the philosophy of communism and Soviet communism, respectively. A round-table discussion among Professors Kurt Flexner, Walter Haines, and Simon Whitney, on the future of American capitalism, concluded the lectures. Membership in the Junior Varsity Glee Club provides a one-year apprentice- ship in choral work, after which qualified students are entitled to ioin the varsity club. Under the direction of Mr. Robert Cutler, formerly in charge of music at Trinity School, the group had a varied season. Their performances included an appearance before the High School Publications Conference at the Square, and a Christmas program in the Chapel. jv glee 5 l'll0l'SE It is the purpose of the Morse Mathematics and Physics Society to hear lectures on scientific subiects not ordinarily covered in the undergraduate curriculum at the Heights. During the year members of the faculty spoke on such widely varying topics as exploring the upper atmosphere and the theory of numbers. The society also initiated a policy of having smokers at which math and physics maiors were able to meet with department chairmen and to discuss professional opportunities. A cultural and educational organization, the Heights chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People was revamped at the be- ginning of the year after groundwork laid the previous semester. Sponsoring talks by representatives from the parent body, and by student members, NAACP frequently saw large turnouts for its meetings. Under the direction of President Walter Williams, the club also participated in conferences on prob- lems in education. naacp An honorary, Pershing Rifles is' composed of students who show outstanding leadership in the basic ROTC courses. Besides putting on a demonstration on Field Day, the group aids the University at graduation exercises and other offi- cial ceremonies. The social year included a Christmas party at Lawrence House, where the local PR unit played host to similar groups in the city and the ROTC Cadre, and co-sponsorship of the Military Ball held at the Astor Roof. Coin-collecting Heightsmen clamoring for a club on campus had their wish fulfilled this year when the Philatelic Society enlarged its scope of activity to add a section on numismatics. A program of instruction concentrated on teach- ing amateur stamp collectors fundamentals of the "art of trading." This program of giving newcomers a fuller understanding of less-publicized features of stamp collecting was employed as club members hustled about with magnifying glasses in search of bargains. philatehc pershing psychology lncreasing membership tremendously this year by a skillful reorganization of club machinery, Walter Williams, president of the Heights Psychology Society, also widely increased the organization's scope of activity. Featured event of the year was a Lawrence House smoker held in coniunction with students from the College of the City of New York, Columbia University, and downtown NYU. Inter-club activity on campus was highlighted by a showing of a film, "La Maternelle," to both the French and Psychology groups. The great iourney was made this year, with the darkroom of the Photography Society moving from the basement of Philosophy to more spacious quarters in the basement of Language Hall. A room directly adioining the new loca- tion was used for lectures and demonstrations by visiting speakers, the pre- sentation of several films and a variety of slides, and for students' talks. Guid- ing these activities, and also the annual salon, were Seymour Ritter, Daniel King, and Allen Brown. photography radio Alton Eckert and Robert Buckley led the work of the Radio Club this year, and were able to expand its broadcasting and receiving activities. The club sta- tion, W2DSC, is located in MacCracken, and the equipment available to the group includes a 500-watt transmitter and several sensitive receivers, with which members have been successful in establishing two-way communication with similar stations all over the world. Code and theory classes were popu- lar features with new members. Royalty and peons alike applauded the efforts of HRH Paul Nonkin in success- fully suppressing this year's series of insurrections within the tight little kingdom of Quaigh. With winter coming, Paullinel April replaced the aging Queen, Walter Tietz, in a tearful scene. Whatever the dissensions rocking the royal persons, a hop-scotch tournament, the guarding of freshmen on the way to their ducking, and an ill-omened clrive to raise money for a Quaigh football scholarship brightened sad faces. quaigh rocket rifle Turkey talk was heard on campus this year and a little investigation revealed that it came from the rifle range under the Old Engineering building, habitat of the Rifle and Pistol Club. The speakers in question were three gobblers being presented to three lucky Heightsmen with a .22. But the annual Turkey Shoot was only a "glamorous" part of a year's work for club members. Most of the time they were lying prone, patiently squeezing trigger after trigger in trying for elusive bull's-eyes. Early in the year, a number of Engineering undergraduates organized the Rocket Society to learn more about theoretical and practical applications of the rocket as a war weapon and a means of communication. Members in- cluded students from both colleges, and they gathered at intervals to hear talks by men in their group on their individual experiences with fuels, launching methods, and construction. Addresses by members of the faculty conducting iet research and by leading authorities in the field, were planned. Rapidly gaining stature in the eyes of Heightsmen whose athletic interests per- tain to it, the Soccer Club, a newcomer on campus, has successfully survived its organizational growing pains under the leadership of President Lionel Friedman and Vice-President Peter Berman. The Club held frequent practices at Van Cortlandt Park this past year, and the oft-expressed hope of the members is that it will prove to be but the seed from which an NYU soccer team will grow. Open to students in the second year of basic ROTC training and the advanced courses, the Society of American Military Engineers has as its constitutional pur- pose the task of promoting interest in engineering preparedness for the defense of the country by the wider dissemination of engineering information bearing on defense. Meetings have been held throughout the year at which members had the opportunity to discuss original papers on pertinent topics. Same SOCCET spanish Attempting to promote the spoken language to an extent impossible in the classroom, the Spanish Society had several speakers who addressed the group entirely in Spanish. First in the series was the Reverend Locadio Lobo, speaking on "Cervantes, the Moralist." Through a similar society at Washington Square, members of the Heights group were able to attend dances which were held regularly downtown. Benedict Ellis, Herbert Ostern, and Gerald Bessinger served as president, vice-president and secretary, respectively. Operating from the frequently demonstrated premise that Heightsmen who study French learn little about the country itself, La Societe Francaise this year tried to bridge the gap. With the popular Professor William H. Stahl as faculty adviser, the club heard discussions of the customs, culture, and language of France from students and faculty members. As a result of this new extra- curricular approach to language study, group membership, under President Herbert Ostern, increased gratifyingly. francaise vhu Since its inception two years ago, the local branch of the Veterans of Foreign Wars has made distinguished progress in meeting the problems encountered by the veteran in college and in his community. Foremost among the varied aims and programs is the promotion of veteran welfare. Housing, the cost of living, and high tuition rates were among the obstacles the VFW worked to remove. Their activity was coordinated with the policy of the national organi- zation. Assistance at Student Council-sponsored affairs, as well as Chapel and WNYU concerts, were the stated obiects of the University Heights Band, chartered in the fall of 1949. Classed as a "symphonic band" by the founding members, some thirty students, the group sought to fill a gap left by the football and ROTC bands, which are limited by their nature to seasonal operation, and the Heights Little Symphony, which uses stringed instruments. Meeting for practice weekly and boasting a membership of fifty-five, this latest band promises much for the future. band republicans democrats The year started for the Young Democrats with a campus campaign for the Lehman-O'Dwyer ticket and after contributing their share to the party's victory, the club carried on with lectures by members of the faculty on party policies, the general machinery of political organizations, and current trends in government. Among the speakers was Professor E. C. Smith on leadership in the Democratic Party. The group was led in its activities by iunior Norman Goldsmith. One of the first political groups to be chartered by the student government, the Young Republicans is affiliated with the New York State Federation of Young Republicans. In spite of the bad beginning of the academic year, which saw a sweeping Democratic victory at the polls, the student group continued to formu- late their independent stand on party policies, and held various meetings during the year toward that end. John DeSilva acted as president. f W' yr military science The peculiar green-and-brown shack that oc- cupies a considerable portion of real estate adiacent to South Field, once again this year housed the military establishment at Univer- sity Heights. Operating with facilities that would make a regular army shudder, the l242nd Area Service Unit, Reserve Officers Training Corps, and Detachment 13, First Air Force, ROTC, managed to intensively and successfully train its normal complement of knock-kneed freshmen, sophomoric sopho- mores, and strutting and bemedalled iuniors and seniors. 0 Within the frame of Shanks Building, which seems to shudder visibly with every strong gust from the north, military personnel in each division have gone all out to improve their teaching methods. The ln- fantry added new recoilless rifles to its ar- senal, while the Signal Corps set up and sup- plied a complete photographic workshop. Not to be outdone, the Engineer section ac- quired numerous working models of bridges, and the Air Force used several bombing accessories for training purposes. O Sev- eral personnel changes were made within the department early this year. Maior P. H. Rafferty was elevated to the position of Pro- fessor of Air Science and Tactics when the Air Force was organized as a separate de- partment. Meanwhile, Colonel E. A. Rudel- ius assumed the job of Coordinator and Chairman of the department in addition to his regular duties as Professor of Military Science and Tactics. C There's scarcely a freshman who does not approach the pros- pect of spending two years in courses in the Military Science department with consider- able trepidation. However the clear-eyed and ambitious seniors who graduate from the advanced corps every year to assume posi- tions in the ROTC and the regular army, tes- tify that many of these freshmen develop considerable interest in the policies and ac- tivities of the military division. New York University requires all Heights students, with the exception of veterans and the physically disabled, to complete the basic two-year course of Military Science. I After under- going a six-week basic drill period that marks their first contact with the rigors of military discipline, the freshmen begin their classroom routines. Instruction commences in military organization, maps and aerial pho- tographs, first aid and hygiene, and the geo- graphical foundations of national power, and freshmen perhaps begin to suspect that there might be something in the course after all. In the spring term frosh studies in weapons and marksmanship culminate with an hour of actual firing at the Rifle Range in the basement of Green Building. O A maior change occurs in the sophomore year, when the cadets are divided into the basic , gli' i 5 llsf 1 F' i EB: V E li ' j if C T e i s iisfjga. Pa .ii branches. The Air Force, for example, pro- vides an armament course for interested air cadets, while the lnfantry course offers a de- tailed study of weapons, with actual assem- bling and disassembling by the student. At the end of each sub-course an examination is given to determine what the student has learned from the classroom demonstrations and the ROTC Manuals which supplement the lecture material. O With the passage of the peacetime draft bill by Congress, many upperclassmen voiced their interest in con- tinuing their military training, in order to qualify for commissions in either the Army or Air Force. The many iuniors and seniors who have swelled the ranks of the advanced course receive daily pay and are issued regulation uniforms. At the end of the course, a number of students who have evidenced intelligence and leadership ability, and who have indicated their willingness to serve at least two years upon their receiving a com- mission, are selected as officer material. 0 Certain restrictions, however, are practiced by the four branches of service. Administration, civil and chemical engineers may enroll in the Engineer Corps, Artsmen only with the Infantry, electrical engineers or physics ma- iors in the Signal Corps, and mechanical and aeronautical engineers, and Physics, Chem- istry and Biology maiors in the Air Force. O An integral and rewarding part of the ad- vanced course is a six-weeks field training program at summer camp. Engineering iun- iors are assigned to Fort Belvoir, Va., site of the Army's Engineer school, while Signal students train at Fort Monmouth, N. J., for many years Signal Center of the Army, and the Infantry group takes advantage of the terrain at Fort Meade, Md. for training. Air Force cadets apply their learning under field conditions at such well-known bases as Lowry Field in picturesque Denver, Colo., and Stewart Air Force Base, Newburgh, N. Y. At these fields, not only do air cadets re- ceive additional training in administration, armament and airplane motor maintenance, but they are allowed to fly as observers on local flights. 0 Engineer specialists at Fort Belvoir learn much about the practical work of their Corps. They concentrate on the build- ing and maintenance of roads, bridges and water supplies. Actual field instruction is given in the use of demolitions. At their sum- mer stations in Fort Monmouth, meanwhile, Signal Corps trainees study the operation and installation of switchboards, wire-line con- struction, and operation of all types of com- munication. Concurrently, infantrymen are spending their six weeks utilizing and caring for the weapons they had studied and seen on charts. They view demonstrations of tanks and other armed vehicles, while the opera- tion of heavy weapons is studied in the field. In general each group of students puts its classroom theories into actual field practice. While engaged in this training program, cadets are paid the regular base pay plus the allowances of a "basic" recruit, and also enioy all the privileges of the regular service personnel with whom they come in contact. O Each year of study and practice in mili- tary and air science is brought to a close with Field Day exercises on a Friday in May. While the ROTC band lends a martial air to the festivities, various college authorities share the reviewing stand with military dig- nitaries. Distinguished military students, who are selected on the basis of both military and academic grades, are presented with their commissions, patted on the back by all the dignitaries, and told to go out and make a better world. Chances are they do. JXSJ' 5-,1Lf,." , ' fU1fQ5Jfk5f5:.j. hwy Wim 11, , ..

Their favorites had iust taken it on the chin in the preliminary round of the National Invitation Tournament, losing to a fast, slick Bradley University five, 80-67. But, what of the future? What of season 1949-50, when, unlike the 1948-49 cam- paign for which Coach Howard G. Cann had to do an unenviable overhaul job in order to field a team minus such court luminaries as Adolph Schayes, Ray Lumpp, Don Forman, and Tom Kelly, the famous tutor would have a host of veteran performers to carry the Violet standard? Things definitely figured to be better on the Palisades this year, and the faithful had high hopes when the Autumn chill sent eager hoopsters into their final preparatory exercises for the long schedule ahead. O Conditions for going through the training chores were again anything but ideal, what with the Heights gym still in a state of "semi-undress." The basketeers roamed far and wide, getting in a session or a scrimmage with whoever would have them. Most of the workouts were held in Manhattan's 69th Regiment Armory, but conflicting programs at that arena found a harassed Violet Coach leading his charges Coach Cann receives the Keogan Trophy after the Notre Dame game, as Kaufman watches. now here and now there in an effort to tune up for a respectable showing at the outset. Despite the moans and groans heard from the vicinity of the Gould Hall basement's Physical Training Department office, where Professor Cann held court when not playing the Pied Piper role with his wandering men, people were predicting all sorts of success for the NYU forces once things got under '0X .Q fC ex , ,QV 7, 'X U09 xg Ecco , , i - xx!! 11 , kv! way. O Missing from last year's eleven man squad were Captain Joe Dolhon and Dick Kor. Both scrappy speedsters, Dolhon and Kor had been starters for the Cannmen, and had contributed immeasurably to the fair amount of success which the club had achieved in its rebuilding effort. O Lead- ing this year's quintet was All-City performer Joel Kaufman, the classy tosser with the deft left. The poise which Joel had picked up since his youthful freshman days tabbed him as one of the nation's best. Hard on had a good bit of competition under his belt. Hefty John Barry, Dan Quilty, Bob Sumin, Jim Hendry, Ralph Tustin, and Bob Derderian were also on hand for another try. I Lead- ing the five additions to the squad were Connie Schaff and Jim Brasco, both fresh- man sensations. Schaff, a strapping 6'3Vz", 220-pounder who had just about every offen- sive qualification that could be asked for- and more-was only a question mark on defense. That, however, was expected to be taken care of with concentration, and Connie the heels of the lanky Kaufman was husky Abe Becker, the former Lincoln star, who had been very impressive in his sophomore year. These two were looked for to provide the maior scoring punch and the steadying influ- ence for the remainder of the Violets. 0 Bill Jensen, the unknown who had gained acclaim for his rebounding abilities, was the third returning first stringer. A handy fellow to have around, BiIl's latent scoring talents were expected to come forth now that he was spoken highly of among the host of promising New York City sophs. Brasco's set shooting and defensive ability placed him among the prospective tops in the city as well. 0 Dick Bunt, a iunior from New- town, was the fastest man on the team, and was looked upon as a capable reserve. Jerry Remer and Howie Weisglass were two trans- ferees from Brooklyn, who had sat out the year of "exile" required by the transfer rule, and were now rarin' to go. 0 Lurking in the background like an over-sized shadow was one Mel Seeman, another of the grow- ing list of ex-Abraham Lincoln standouts who were filling the Violet roster. At 6'-6" Seeman was held in high repute by his Coach, and all eyes were set for the mid- year break which would conclude his period of "banishment" for switching from Syracuse. O While their local competitors tuned up with several "gym" contests, the Palisaders could book only one of these breathers be- fore hitting the big turn. The victim was Kings Point at Great Neck, and the expected resulted. With Kaufman leading the parade on a twenty-two point spree, the Cannmen sailed by the Mariners, 76-44. Becker and Derderian scored twelve each in this opener. O And then the sad tale began! The ma- chine hit a snag! For the first time in eleven years NYU lost an opener at Madison Square Garden! This was something to look into! O Behind most of the way, the Violets overtook Vanderbilt late in the second half, only to be knotted by a last-second tally which sent the fray into overtime. Here the Commodores cruised by the tired Palisaders and finished on top, 65-59. Becker, with fifteen, Kaufman with fourteen, and Derderian with thirteen led their side, while individual high man was the victors' Dave Kardokus, who threw in three two-pointers in the extra period and had an overall total of nineteen for his eiefi 1 I 3' we f 2 f f. .', ' 3 f El g g, , 4 abe becker V efforts.

A glaring error on esgiy the part of an official i',,. si who failed to see Billy Harper step out of gi- -,,, bounds on his tying score, cost the New Yorkers the ball game. But things were definitely not pleasant at NYU, with two expected wins having gone down the drain. Kaufman scored fourteen in this one to take the honors for the eve- ning, with Derderian's eleven runner-up. 0 Nor were things much more pleasant when the Cannmen managed to eke out an over- time victory over a so-so Rutgers quintet, 73-72, next time out. lt was a change 'mel, get this guy off my neck' ull!

From the looks of it the Palisaders were never going to get up enough gas to go the whole way, as they became annoyingly consistent in dropping seemingly insurmountable leads. So far out front at one phase that it appeared ridiculous, the locals ended up staggering to an 83-78 loss, sustained at the hands of a poor Colgate quintet. Dave Alton's twenty- five proved the difference, while Connie yale didn't dazzle flying iim Schaff ioined the NYU leaders with eleven. 0 Unable to rack up a point in the final seven minutes, the Violets continued their second stanza somnambulism against Holy Cross, failing miserably before a packed Saturday night house, 49-34, after leading convincingly most of the way. All-American Bob Cousy managed thirteen tallies for his club. O Something resembling a "great awakening" took place when the Cannmen bowled over the Golden Bears of California, 69-50. Becker led the win with eighteen markers, while three of the other starters- Kaufman, Jensen and Brasco-collected a dozen apiece, and Dan Quilty netted ten. 0 Both Christmas week foes were taken in stride and they were again "talking tourna- ment" around University Heights. Yale was dumped, 72-62, and another Ivy League entry was promptly handed an even more convincing pasting, when Dartmouth was taken into camp, 87-39. The latter total rep- resents the highest score ever for NYU in the Garden. The "Dartmouth Story" may be summed up with the words: "The game wasn't as close as the score indicated," as everybody got into the act, and only Barry failed to ioin the scoring parade. O Back to their now patented Hfast fadeout," the Violets were defeated in their next game by Temple, 50-45, giving them a record of five RWM iim brasco , A fy T' j X P' Y' un V " lv ' x 'Z' 1 l -we i . .f ' el 3 up and five down. This was a poor game, and the overtime necessitated by NYU's fail- ing to wrap it up when they had it, made matters even more depressing. lke Borsav- age's twenty-four points had nullified Beck- er's fourteen and Derderian's thirteen, as the lack of a big man again hurt the home side. 0 ln the last encounter before the new semester was to bring Seeman into the line- up, the Cannmen romped over Duke, 80-64, with Schaff and Kaufman run- ning wild to score twen- ty-two points each. O While Seeman definitely proved a strong addition in his first test, against Georgetown in Washing- ton, he didn't awaken his mates to the fact that there are two halves to a ball game, and the story con- tinued to unfold on a frus- tratingly familiar pattern. Ahead 41-28 at the half, by virtue of some tremen- dous backboarding pro- vided by 'big Mel, the Palisaders appeared to have come up with just what the doctor ordered. But evidently the medico left off an important part of the prescription, for they fiubbed it in the end, 71-60, through no fault of the nervous Seeman whose initial trial garnered him fifteen points. 0 Back to Ned lrish's bailiwick they came, and from what happened they might have been better off if they had stayed away. Manhattan, a beaten-by-everybody outfit, ripped the Vio- lets, 80-55. Byron lgoe's twenty-three points were decisive, while Kaufman collected seventeen and Seeman ten, in one of the most humiliating performances ever staged by an NYU cage contender. 0 On the road once more, a bit of improvement was shown, although the Cannmen faded at Syracuse to lose, 61-49. In a rough game, in which a nervous Seeman showed creditably despite the merciless riding given him by his old fans, the Orange ran away from the New Yorkers late in the second half to win go- ing away. Ed Miller, Seeman's former under- study, scored sixteen to lead his team to victory, while Kaufman, Becker, and Seeman hit double figures for the losers. I Saving their rooters from the height of degradation, the Palisaders recovered more of their equili- seeman surveys the scene brium when they humbled a good Brooklyn College quintet the next weekend, 74-62. The fast-stepping Kingsmen had iumped to a quick ten-point lead, but with Seeman showing the way, the Cannmen came back to sweep the game away. The big pivot man tossed in twenty-three markers, closely fol- lowed by Becker, who with nineteen and a generally outstanding exhibition, was voted outstanding in the game. This was the four- teenth success in as many attempts with the Flatbushers. 0 After a sensational first half against St. John's in the next of the "money" ball games, the Violets ended up by playing second fiddle to the high-flying Redmen, losing 66-60. A sensational second half comeback by the Indians was led by Zeke Zawoluk, who turned in twenty-five for the evening, and Jack McMahon, hard- driving guard. Seeman and Becker were NYU consolations this time. O They may have done little else of note this year, but they did beat Notre Dame, which is more than most of their illustrious predecessors could do. Staving off a last-minute desperation Irish drive with a final gasp, the Cannmen took home the Keogan Trophy, 66-63. Brasco scored sixteen and did a fine iob on All- America Kevin O'Shea, a thorn in the Violet petals in his three other appearances here, and Seeman and Schaff dropped in a dozen each to spark this somewhat redeeming win. Things were definitely looking up at this late date. O Fordham was a regressive affair, as the Cannmen moved from 33-33 at halftime to a 74-52 shellacking at the final buzzer. Jerry Moye's twenty-one points earned him the Maroon Quill Trophy as the "most valuable" performer in the contest, while the huge Bill Carlson outscored a rap- crazy-horse schaff in action idly-maturing Seeman, eighteen to fifteen. It was just another case of nothing left at the finish. I That left City. Would this follow the underdog victory pattern of the past sev- eral years? Almost, but not quite. In as good an exhibition as they'd given all season, with some fight thrown in for good measure, the Cannmen succumbed to the swift-moving Beavers, 64-61, in a thriller which went right down to the wire. Becker, Schaff, and See- man were tremendous in this battle, but Ed Warner of City was better. Scoring twenty- six points, he was unstoppable, and over- came a late Violet lead almost single- handed. One bright note was the continued betterment of Schaff and Seeman's outplay- ing highly touted Beaver pivot Ed Roman. Becker's eighteen markers were tops for his side, and second to Warner in the overall totals. 0 With a total of 242 points in the season, Becker captured the scoring honors, followed by Kaufman, who finished with 237 after a flying start which pointed to better things. Nobody else was even close to them. Brasco and Der- derian, who tallied 130 points each, were next, with T12 both for Schaff and Seeman closing out the leaders. Considering that the latter played only eight games, he may be said to have done well in point pro- duction, for his fourteen per game average was high for the team. I There it is! Not much to look back on -a record of eight and eleven, one of the worst in history. Kaufman, Jensen, Remer, Barry, Weisglass, and Quilty were to be graduated. Led by newly elected captain Becker, the Violets, with other ex-Lincoln High stalwarts, Brasco, Seeman, Sumin, and frosh standout Mark Solomon, along with Schaff and some other promising newcomers and holdovers, had every reason to be hopeful. Besides, it was almost a certainty that the new gym would be ready at long last. football ln a year in which the decline of New York University in almost all fields of athletic en- deavor became more than noteworthy, per- haps the most significant example of the faltering Violet prowess again occurred in what is generally considered to be the col- legiate sport-the territory of the pigskin, the raccoon coat, the off-tackle play and the broken field run. An excellent coach, one brilliant halfback, an almost pitifully small group of veteran gridders and an equally small collection of promising, if inexperi- enced, sophomores carried the colors of NYU through nine contests, none of which was decided by less than fourteen points. This obvious inequality between the Violets and their opponents remains as silent testimony to the unhappy plight of the hapless coach and his tired, battle-worn players. 0 Fight- ing the red tape and taboos which had hamp- ered him in his first two seasons on Ohio Field, Coach Edward "Hook" Mylin started his third with the same difficulties-a small , ft K V 7 ,1 it X ' - tm squad, no real home field, limited practice time and facilities, and the prospect of a poor freshman team to fill in the gaps in the years ahead. Despite these handicaps the club easily whipped three of its four metropolitan rivals, while suffering one-sided defeats at the hands of all five of the out-of-town teams on the nine-game slate. l Co-captains of this year's team were fullback Joe Novotny and center Joe Rogoff-two scrappy fellows named Joe.

Leading the pack of newcomers to the Mylinmen was Art Kalaka, a big, bruising, fast-moving center who proved to be one of the best line- backers of the team on defense, while a terror to the opposition in offensive play. Kalaka moved into the first string center spot early in the fall and performed admirably as the key man in the line all season. O Behind Kalaka were Dick White, a fast, com- pact guard, Charley Apkarian, a smart rug- ged defensive tackle, Andy Corvi, another smart guard, Johnny Baldasaro, a center who was switched to defensive right end and occasionally displayed surprising pass-re- ceiving ability, Tony Malanka, another right tackle, and Jerry Minster, another able center. These were the newcomers. Add to this list the names of veteran tackles Mike Fazio and Alan Hopewell, guard Phil Cox and end George Starke and that just about completes the roster of available Palisader linemen. O In the backfield it was all Bill Payne. Bullet Bill dominated the offensive play of the squad consistently all through the year, scoring eight touchdowns and gain- ing over five hundred yards rushing. His 48 points scored represent the highest total turned in by an NYU player in thirteen years, add on the 705 yards Payne gained on pass interceptions, punt returns and kick-off re- turns, and another 167 which he gained as a pass receiver, and much of the story of the 1949 Violet footballers is told. C Joe Quinn, the signal-calling passer who was respon- sible for most of the aerial attack the Mylin- men displayed, was another backfield vet- eran who performed creditably all through the season. Quinn-to-George Starke passes accounted for 243 yards and a pair of TD's, while his tosses to halfbacks Bill Payne and Jack Fogarty rolled up a similar amount of yardage and scoring plays. Behind Quinn, On the broad fields of New Brunswick. co-captain Joe Novotny proved to be an outstanding defensive back as he operated out of the fullback spot for the Palisaders. O In support of these experienced operators, another trio of sophomores lent their speed, deception and power to the Mylin backfield. Bill Ranieri handled most of the punting chores for a team which spent a great deal of time in its own territory. He averaged over 35 yards a try and kept the Violet club steadily within scoring distance of its oppo- nents in many a ball game. Norm Cassowitz, halfback, and Matt Bonanno, fullback, both were hard-driving backs whose speed, solid defensive play and ground gaining abilities were strong points in the team's play. 0 The list of gridders comes to an abrupt end here. There were no second and third pla- toons which should be described in the annual run-down. Coach Mylin, and his two capable assistants, George McGaughey and Roy Cestary, had to rely on this group of about twenty men for the full sixty minutes of each ball game. And so, the weary tale unfolds . . . O The Violets opened the sea- son against Bucknell, travelling to Lewisburg, Pa., to play a very close game with the Bisons, but one in which they were shut out, 'I4-0. The only scoring plays of the clash were made by Jim Ostendorp of Bucknell, who got away for two long runs which meant the ball game. The savage defense put up by the Violet line, and in particular the pow- erful and accurate tackling of Alan Hopewell, was nullified when the Palisader offense could not keep going, once it had started. Although Jack Fogarty and Norm Cassowitz got away for several long runs during the fray, the Mylinmen's downfield blocking was not what it should have been, and the loose runners were brought down before reaching paydirt. Gaining 220 yards on the ground was not enough to produce an NYU score. 0 Back into home territory for their second contest, the Hall of Famers ran rampant over an undermanned Brooklyn College club, 39- 13, at the Polo Grounds in a completely one- sided contest. Bullet Bill Payne led the Violet attack, but all the NYU gridmen performed with extremely effective precision and ac- curacy. ln scoring their sixth consecutive tri- umph over the Kingsmen, six Palisaders shared in the glory, each scoring one TD. Novotny and Cassowitz put the Violets in front, 'I3-0, in the first quarter, and when NYU kick-off, Fordham receiving. Brooklyn scored at the start of the second period, Jerry Eisenman and Bill Payne coun- tered for NYU to give Coach Mylin a three- touchdown cushion, and they coasted in from there. More important, five Palisaders dis- played their fine kicking form in this tilt. Sophs Dom Scazzero and Bill Ranieri both punted well, George Starke handled the kickoffs, and George Lorentz and Russ Gi- rolamo shared the point-after-touchdown duties. 0 Returning to the road and the losing column, the Mylinmen moved into the nation's capital the following week-end, to give battle to a strong Georgetown eleven. In spite of the fact that Bill Payne played one of the finest games in his brilliant career, the Violets could not put together enough of a passing attack or pass defense to stop the Hoyas from coming out on top, 21-6. Frank Mattingly completed eight of fifteen attempted passes for the winner, which, cou- pled with the running of Georgetown's highly rated left halfback, Billy Conn, was too much for the NYU squad. Payne, in leading the Violet offense, gained 123 yards on the ground in twelve attempts and scored the Georgetown drives through the night for six. only NYU touchdown, going inside left tackle for sixty yards in the fourth quarter. 0 Again on the road, this time in New England to meet Harry Agganis and his Boston U. teammates, the Violets were subiected to their worst beating of the year, 38-0. Obvi- ously outmatched in every department except spirit, Coach Mylin's men played the boys from Beantown even during the first quarter. Then the weight of numbers began to tell. Boston was three deep in every position and Harry Agganis one of the most talented passers the Violets had the misfortune to oppose all season. The brilliant southpaw threw two TD passes early in the second quarter to virtually ice the game. Because of the rain, there were nine fumbles and in- numerable interceptions and misplays on the field, and these, perhaps, saved the Pali- saders from one of the worst defeats in NYU football history. O Back to Pennsylvania again for another licking, the New Yorkers were taken over by a Lehigh team which was able to spring its runners loose just often enough to notch three TD's and an easy 21-6 victory, the fourth loss in five starts for the It was a hard fight, mom, but I caught it. Violets. Bill Payne and Norm Cassowitz were the only consistent ground gainers the Pali- saders could field, and the big, rugged and strong Lehigh line raised havoc with the NYU passing attack. The sole Violet score came after two long gains by Payne and a Quinn- to-Starke pass brought the visiting eleven on the doorstep, then Quinn sneaked through the open door for the TD. 0 Back to their own class, or perhaps one or two levels below it, the gridders tripped over to Tombs Field on Long Island to hand the Kings Point Maritime Academy a 39-0 beating. This was the Boston game in reverse. Payne scored three touchdowns, Fogarty one, and big George Starke two on passes from Jerry Eisenman and Joe Quinn. The Violets put on sustained drives, utilizing both the air and the ground and clinched the game in the second quarter with four scoring marches. Rolling up a 32-0 bulge at the half, Coach Mylin began to substitute freely and coasted home. O Quickly recovering from their second win of the year and getting back to the more usual task of facing a larger and deeper team, the Violets iourneyed to New Brunswick to give battle to the Scarlet of Rutgers, and battle they did give. But, again, what they could offer was not enough. The depth of the Raritan team won out, and Rut- gers fans walked off the field singing Vive la Compagnie after a 33-9 triumph. Directed by the superb quarterback, Walt LaPrarie, and led by the fine running of Herm Hering and Harvey Grimsley, the Scarletmen gradually wore down the NYU footballers who were able to match them evenly in the first period. The only thing worth telling about, as far as the New York U. fans were concerned, was that the Palisaders had finally scored against the Rutgers team-for the first time since 1945. 0 The announcement of Coach My- lin's resignation came the day before the game, and it did much to dishearten the few faithful who travelled out to New Brunswick that Saturday afternoon. With the end of the Mylin reign was expected to go the end of many dreams of future Violet gridiron greatness. O Against CCNY, which seemed to be in even deeper straits than NYU, an- other rout was enioyed by the Loyal Violet Fan who saw his favorites plaster the Beavers all over the field and emerge with a 41-7 win. Payne again was the spark which ig- nited the Violet flame, as well as the fuel which kept it burning. Equally brilliant was the play of the NYU line which held the Beavers to minus five yards gained on the ground in the initial half, and only fifteen yards for the entire contest. City's star half- back, Leo Wagner, was rushed all through the game, and such mainstays as Al Hope- well, Phil Cox and George Starke prevented him from showing his passing and running skill. A total of eleven fumbles prevented several long drives from resulting in scores, and most of the tallying came on single plays which went all the way. 0 The few were pitted against the many the following week, and though they gave their all, the Violets were unable to stop the highly vaunted Ram contingent which sent them down to defeat in their last game under Hook Mylin. Payne, Hopewell, Kalaka, Quinn, Ranieri, Fogarty- the Palisader standouts of the season-all shone brightly in a vain cause, as Fordham's Dick Doheny completed seventeen passes in twenty-four attempts to spark his team to a 34-6 victory and win himself the Madow trophy. Held to minus 33 yards rushing, and able to complete only seven of the 33 passes tried, a black season came to an even blacker end for the Violets as the traditionally tough game for both teams became a heart-break- ing romp by Fordham on the cold and un- happy field of the Polo Grounds. I That was the story on the field. Off the field it was something else again. The resignation of the coach, the agitation for action by the students and alumni-these were moves of note. Most people felt that it was the end of an era. With the appointment of a five-man athletic investigatory committee by the Chan- cellor and the later selection of Hugh Devore, hopes soared. Whether this optimism was unfounded or premature nobody could de- termine. One fact was certain-things could not get any worse. New mentor Hugh Devore watches his practice backfield in operation. "f'ff"'Y.5t baseball The 1949 New York University baseball team, though failing to gain its seventh consecu- tive Metropolitan Conference championship, enioyed a successful season during which it won 15 games and lost 7. Coach William V. McCarthy, at the helm for the twenty-eighth consecutive year, was faced with the problem in April of filling gaps at first base, shortstop, and on the mound. While these replacements more than adequately filled the shoes of their predecessors, a number of veterans failed to shape up to expectations. 0 Standout per- formers were righthanded hurler Ed Funai and first baseman Bill Kroc, both of whom were selected for the Met Conference All-Star team. Kroc led an otherwise weak hitting club at bat, compiling a .315 average in conference play, while knocking out four home runs. Funai brought to the Heights one of the fastest assortments of serves to be seen in quite a while, employing them to turn in a season's record of five wins and a lone setback. Nick Marino, moving in from the outfield to take over the shortstopping duties, also fared quite well in earning All-Star hon- orable mention. 0 Closing the Met Con- ference season with a 9-5 won and lost record, the Violets managed to tie City Col- lege for second place in the league standings, relinquishing their title to St. John's for the first time since 1942. While the Redmen es- tablished their supremacy by downing the Hall of Famers in the season's two encount- ers, losses to the hitherto harmless nines of lm E '2 ".. V,'-'vf: ' - -1 ' .. .fig ,, , Hofstra and Brooklyn College spelled the difference in the final standings. 0 Open- ing against City College on Thursday, April 7, the McCarthymen wrested a 5-3 decision be- hind the hurling of Ed Funai and Bill Jensen. Adept fielding decided the outcome as team captain Phil Angelastro ran to the outer reaches of Ohio Field in the final frame to gather in a clout labelled home run. Two sin- gles and a double by newcomer Ray Clayton, together with a pair of Beaver errors, brought home five Violet tallies in the fifth and made up the entire NYU offensive. 0 Given a day's rest when the scheduled encounter with Columbia was rained out, the Palisaders came back fresh to Ohio Field, where they dealt Villanova an 8-3 loss. Nick Marino led the team at bat with three hits, while his teammates made the most of 10 walks and 5 Wildcat errors. Tom Casey, the lone pitching standout to return from the '48 nine, was credited with the win. I Still on their home diamond, the Violets took their second Met Conference game on Tuesday, April 12, as Casey and Funai combined for a 4-1 victory over Manhattan. Though he struck out twelve, Jasper hurler Jack Toomey was touched for eight Violet hits, among these a mighty ground rule double by rightfielder Ray Clay- ton that bounded off the base of Gould Hall. Once again Marino proved the batting stand- out as he collected three hits in as many times at bat. I The varsity nine made the most of the Easter recess, stretching its win streak to five straight at the expense of Syra- cuse and Yale. Though held to two hits in the Friday encounter with the visiting Orange, four errors, a double steal, a wild pitch and a hit batsman gave starter Bill Jensen a five- run cushion that proved sufficient until show- ers halted the proceedings at the start of the sixth. O Visiting New Haven for the first away game, the Hall of Famers turned in one The McCarthymen grounded the Flying Dutch- men to the tune of 5-0 on Ohio Field with Ed Funai, Bill Jensen and Tom Casey each having a hand in the victory. Funai received credit for the win by virtue of his standout starting performance, striking out seven men in five innings. ln the offensive department it was Bill Kroc's booming home run into cen- terfield in the fourth inning that did the dam- age. 0 On Thursday, April 21, Temple's Owls visited the Heights and inflicted upon the Violets their first defeat. lt was a one- man show as Philadelphia lefthander Charley LEFT TO RIGHT, KNEELING: Nicholas Marino, Dominick Scazzero, George Diehl, Philip Angelastro lCAP- TAlNl, William Romano, John DiGeronimo, Joseph Tratticanda.

Casey managed to go the distance, yielding nine hits and three runs. Marino once again collected a trio of safeties as every Palisader racked up a hit. 0 A scheduled clash with Rutgers, one of the baseball powers of the East, was rained out and Hofstra became the next club to contribute to the Violet win skein. Schreiner dealt up a neat five-hitter and banged out two home runs, both times with two mates aboard. Schreiner opened the scoring in the second inning when he blasted one of Joe TralTicanda's serves into the re- cesses of left field. ln the fifth inning Phil Angelastro broke a Violet hit famine and came home to score on Bill Romano's double. The next inning Temple got this one back with interest on Schreiner's second blast, and from there on the Owls were never headed. Bob Mastruzzi relieved Trafficanda in the seventh and Phil Angelastro came in from center field in the ninth to close out on the mound. I NYU rebounded the following day, salvaging a 3-1 win over Colgate on rain-soaked Ohio Field. Ed Funai was once again starred on the mound for the Violets in an abbreviated game that was called at the end of six innings. I The St. John's Redmen left the NYU diamond on Saturday afternoon, April 23, with a hard-fought 7-6 decision in a game fhat had seen the Pali- saders trail by as much as seven runs. Tom Casey was the victim of his own mischief in a seven-run third frame. Four hits, two walks i' . V" 'rl' ward bound. The game marked the first ap- pearance of Charley Aspromonte, a hard- hitting outfielder up from the iunior varsity, who responded to his promotion with two singles and a triple to pace the Violet scoring efforts. O When the Hall of Famers iour- neyed to Easton, Pa., to face Lafayette Uni- versity, it marked one of the highlights of the season. In a masterful pitching duel that fea- tured Tom Casey and Fred Robbins, now a bonus star in the Yankee chain, the Pali- saders emerged victorious, 2-1. Casey gave up but four safeties, while his adversary yielded one less, the difference in the final score coming as a result of the eleven walks issued Violet batsmen. Violet captain Phil and an error by the Violet moundsman him- self told the tale. Coming up with three runs before the start of the ninth, the Hall of Famers staged a nearly successful rally in the final frame fhat netted a trio of runs. O An indication that Brooklyn College had re- nounced its position as Conference doormat came the next Tuesday when Coach Mc- Carthy's forces eked out a 5-4 win. Ed Funai saved the day as he came on in the seventh inning in relief of Phil Angelastro and struck out six men before the Violets were home- Angelastro scored both of his team's runs after he had reached first base via the free- pass route. In the fifth it was Nick Marino's double that did the damage, while in the seventh Dom Scazzero drove home the win- ning run with a single. O The diamondmen next defeated Fordham, 5-3, on the NYU campus. Ed Funai started for the Palisaders and set down ten men before a Ram reached first base. Funai and Bill Kroc shared hitting honors, the first sacker collecting three hits. Miscues featured every scoring rally, the Vio- lets scoring two in the second and coming from behind in the seventh to rack up three more. Earlier, in the Ram's part of the seventh inning, Funai retired to the showers and Tom Casey came on to close the gates after three tallies had dented the plate. 0 Letting a seemingly sure victory and Met Conference leadership slip through their grasp, the nine blew a 4-3 effort to St. John's at Dexter Park on May 3. Angelastro was a surprise starter and the Redmen hustled a run off Phil in the very first frame. NYU retrieved that one the very next inning on hits by Clayton and Lyon. When Angelastro filled the sacks in the fifth, Funai came in to put out the fire, yield- ing a tally in the process. The Violets went ahead on two runs in the seventh, but in the last of the ninth a throw that got past catcher Gordon Lyon allowed the tying run to cross and the winning run came home moments later on a single off reliefer Tom Casey. 0 Brooklyn College dealt the final blow to Vio- let championship hopes four days later when the Kingsmen prevailed by a score of 8-5. The Violets left fifteen men on base, garner- ing twelve walks and seven hits, while taking advantage of four Brooklyn bobbles. Never- theless the Flatbushers came out on top as a result of eleven hits off Tom Casey, who went the distance. 0 Sparked by two tremendous home runs by Ray Clayton and Dom Scazzero, the McCarthymen rode over the Kings Point nine by a 7-3 margin on May 9 at Ohio Field. Phil Angelastro allowed but three hits in racking up the win. The Violets iumped to a two-run advantage in the second, were tied by the Mariners in the third stanza and moved ahead once and for all on Clayton's round tripper in the third. Joe Rosato, catcher, came through with three hits for the NYU cause. 0 ln a game that spared for the A considerable portion of the strength of the base- ball team rested with these three mainstays: Bill Romano, classy fielding second baseman, John Brescia, outstanding backstopp and Big Ed Funai, whose fireballing and sharp curves earned him one of the two All-Met selections from the Violets-the other was first baseman Bill Kroc. Violets the ignominy of third place in the Met League, Ed Funai went a rocky route to overcome City College, 6-4. An eighth inning rally saw the men of McCarthy drive home three runs to overcome a Lavender lead of 4-2. In the previous stanza Aspromonte had connected for a round tripper. I On Friday the thirteenth Manhattan was not un- luckier than it had been throughout the sea- son, for the Jaspers dropped their eighth league game in ten starts to the Violets, 9-3. Tom Casey, who yielded nary a blow in the first four stanzas, had an easy time of it on the hill as his mates provided him with a seven-run cushion in the second frame. Jack Toomey was the unfortunate Manhattan moundsman who faltered in this fateful frame, giving up five straight walks and two doubles to decide the issue. 0 The Violets left their hitting shoes home when they trav- elled to Hempstead, L. I., on Saturday, May 14, and hence fell prey to a three-hitter ggAYl'Rf X lull, Tom Casey, 1948 All-Met hurler for the McCarthy- men, teamed up with Funai to form a one-two punch for the Violet nine. Won seven, lost four. tossed by Hofstra's Arnold Wilschek. The Flying Dutchmen amassed their winning mar- gin in the first frame when they scored two runs and an insurance marker came in the seventh, making the final score 3-0. Angelas- tro started for NYU and was relieved by Ed Funai. 0 Mercifully called at the end of seven innings by mutual consent, a game was played between NYU and Kings Point the following Monday that saw the McCar- thymen regain their batting eye to the tune of 21-2. Bill Kroc's two singles and two home runs, one a grand-slammer, paced the Violets at the plate. An eight-run uprising in the third allowed starting hurler Ed Funai to re- tire with the win in the next stanza. U The Hall of Famers next met Holy Cross on May 25 in the confines of the Polo Grounds. The occasion marked the first time a Violet nine had been defeated in a maior league park, as Crusader Matt Formon manufactured him- self a six-hit, 4-0 shutout. Tom Casey, who retired 15 straight men from the second to the eighth inning, was charged with the loss, weakening before a three-run Holy Cross on- slaught in the next to the last inning. O In an eleven-inning battle at the winner's field, Fordham defeated NYU, 5-4, to close the Met Conference season on Saturday, May 28. Tom Casey once again suffered defeat, this time in relief of Ed Funai, as he uncorked two wild pitches, both of which brought a runner home from third base. Jim Arbucho, who had won the last game Fordham had taken from NYU two years previous, went the distance in this one for the win. 0 On June 1 the NYU baseball season came to a close. A double to rightfield with two out in the ninth gave the Violets a 3-2 victory over Army at West Point. The hit, by graduating Phil Angelastro, scored Tom Casey with the winning run. For nine innings Casey and Jack McCarthy had dueled on even terms, Casey yielding but eight hits and McCarthy but five. Army committed five misplays, the bobble of a grounder by "Automatic" Jack Mackmull at third base allowing Casey to reach first in the ninth inning. 0 For the record: Base- baIl's light still shone through a cloudy pic- ture. But it, too, showed signs of flickering. cross country Numerically speaking, the 1949 cross country team was as deep in manpower as its prede- cessor. However, the loss of Armand Oster- berg and Austin Scott through graduation left a vacancy which was never completely filled. Two sophomores, Gordon McKenzie and Howard Jacobson, carried the load of Violet scoring, along with captain Bill Cun- ningham. O Army ruined the Von Elling- men's debut by taking the first three places for a 19-42 triumph. Only two Violets, Larry Ellis and Jacobson, finished in the first ten. The following week, Penn State and the Ashenfelter brothers shut out the Palisaders, 15-40. Lack of pre-season conditioning was given as the cause of this bad start. O ln their dual meet with Villanova, NYU finally broke into the win column. The Wildcats' scoring punch ended with Browning Ross and George Thompson, who took first and third, respectively. But with McKenzie and company taking the remainder of the first eight places, the Von Ellingmen copped a 24-31 decision. O In a tune-up meet for the Met champion- 1. L 3 im 661 ' K get 1e. , ships, the Violets trounced Iona, 17-38. Mc- Kenzie won his first race of the season, while Jacobson showed his freshman form by tak- ing second. Manhattan won the Met title by scoring in the first five places, while McKenzie and Cunningham paced the Palisaders to the runner-up slot. O A triangular meet with Rutgers and Syracuse saw the Orangemen place men in seven of the first eight finishers. However, NYU managed to come out ahead of the Scarlet. The year's finale was the lC4A championships, in which NYU's contingent fin- ished seventh. McKenzie was the first Violet to score, and twenty-third in the field. track I A busy '49 spring season saw Irv "Moon" Mondschein, Stan Lampert, Reggie Pearman, Hugo Maiocco, lra Kaplan, and Jim Gilhooley establish themselves as all-time track and field standouts at NYU, and for that matter, any school. Only the pre-war group of Les MacMitchell, Bill Hulse, Jim Herbert, and Hal Bogrow, which paced the national champion- ship editions, could compare with the 1949 stars of the first magnitude. I Although they didn't lead the Violets to more national titles because of a lack of depth on the squad, the forty-niners contributed gene- rously to Coach Emil Von Elling's trophy room. In chronological order: the quarter- mile relay championship at Seton Hall, first place watches and cups in the mile and sprint medley races at the Penn Relay Car- nival, the Metropolitan team crown for the eighth successive year, on the strength of eight individual first place gold medals and six second place silver awards, a bronze third place trophy in the lC4A championships, and three second place prizes in the National Collegiate meet-were some of the sundry pieces of iewelry shipped to the track room at the Heights. O The Violets began their spring offensive on the twenty-third of April at the rain-soaked Seton Hall Relays. Anchor man lra Kaplan capped some nice relay run- ning by Roy Chernock, Hartley Lewis and Frank Svoboda, to outsprint-or rather, out- splash-Wayne University anchor runner Lo- renzo Wright, Olympic gold medalist, and give the Hall of Famers the 440 yard relay title. I NYU picked up, in addition, a sec- ond in the four-mile relay and a fourth in the two-mile test. Furthermore, with the great Reggie Pearman stranded in the Caribbean because of a plane-grounding storm, the Von Ellingmen still managed to beat out the favored host school in the mile relay, al- though they were in turn upset by an aston- ishing Morgan State quartet. O All during the following week, when the violet-clad athletes chugged around Ohio Field in final preparation for the world series of baton- passing, the Penn Relay Carnival, they ex- pressed alarm over the State quartet, an- chored by Jamaican Olympian Sam Rhoden, which had surprised all trackdom, as well as over the other foursomes they had begun to worry about months earlier. Ohio State, anchored by world Olympic champion Mal Whitfield, Seton Hall with Frank Fox, who was to win the lC4A title a month later, and a dangerous Cornell foursome, paced by Charlie Moore and Bob Mealey, both of them national track kings, all loomed as threats to the Hall of Famers who hoped for a repeat win. O As it turned out, Morgan was disqualified in the heats for pushing, while Pearman flew away from Whitfield in Hugo Maiocco anchoring the NYU mile re- lay to the Met Intercol- legiate cham- pionship. the other trial. In fact, Mealey and Fox also rolled by Mal, and the great Ohio State entry found itself eliminated in a maior upset. The final was thus something of an anti-climax, with the Violets winning as they pleased to gain permanent possession of the Mike Mur- phy Mile Relay Challenge Cup on their fifth U 'Y' if ea ,J 'W' Stan Lampert, holder of the all-time NYU record. victory in a decade, having won previously in '40, '43, '47, and '48. 0 With Hugo running wild for a 47.9 second leg, the NYU quartet of John Nelson, Maiocco, Jim Gil- hooley and Pearman beat Cornell by fifteen yards, with Seton Hall, Michigan, Yale, and Manhattan puffing hard far in the rear. The winning time of 3:l5.6 was iust eight-tenths of a second off the Woodruff-anchored Pitt record team and a mere one-tenth off the NYU record set by the identical combination the year before. 0 The Violets did smash a school record on the first day of the two- day annual classic when Gilhooley l440l, Lewis i220i, Kaplan i220l, and Pearman l880i, registered a 3:24.9 sprint medley vic- tory, erasing the old NYU mark of 3:26.2 established in 1947 by a team which included the same Pearman and Kaplan. Aside from these sensational triumphs, NYU captured unexpected seconds in the distance medley and the four-mile relay events, principally because of the long-legged Ellis, who dipped well under 4:20 for both his anchor miles. Armand Osterberg and Bill Cunningham also ran well in these. C ln the individual events, reduced almost to the status of a sideshow by the relays, the Violets took some high places, too. Mondschein copped second and fourth in the broad and high iumps, respectively, and his teammate, Stan Lam- pert, finished runner-up to Yale's Jim Fuchs in the shot put. Lanky Bob Hatch, an im- proving sophomore, took second in his sec- tion of the 400 meter hurdles and fourth in the final standings. 0 On May 'IO the Von Ellingmen came from behind to nose out Current No. 1 high iumper and pole vaulter Ron Lennox. Manhattan for the Metropolitan title, 99Vz to 93Vz. The heroes in this one were the shining "Moon," who tied for first in the pole vault at 12', won the broad iump outright with a 22' 107i-1" leap, and took seconds in the high jump and hammer throw, Lampert, who heaved the 'l6-pound iron ball 54' 'l3!4" for a meet record victory in the shot put, and also placed third in the discus throw, and Kaplan, winner of the 220-yard dash and runner-up to Columbia's Zegger in the cen- tury run. 0 To complete the list of gold medalists, Ron Lennox tied teammate Mond- Off before the camera, Dick Maiocco takes the baton from Bob Hatch. Dick ran the third leg of the mile relay during the indoor season. schein in the pole vault, and Nelson, lead-off man on the great Violet relay, won the low hurdles, while relay mates Pearman and Gilhooley romped in the half and the quarter, respectively, with the other member, Maiocco, taking fourth behind Jim in the 440. 0 Fol- lowing their thrilling Met win, the Palisaders overwhelmed Brown University, 92-43, at Providence. The victors were not shut out in any one of the fifteen events and won nine of them. Outstanding were Lampert, who set a new Brown field record in the shot, and Kaplan, who breezed through the 100 in 9.9 seconds. However, things weren't looking as bright in the lC4A championships later that month. With Pearman, picked to win both the quarter and half-mile races, blanked via spike wounds, and Ellis, a potential scorer in the mile, shut out for the same reason, NYU could do no better than third, a mere point behind the runner-up Yalemen, but far back of the victorious Michigan State squad. 0 Mondschein, his great varsity career about to end, was never better. The portable track team hit new heights in the high jump by tying Dick Phillips of Brown for first at 6' 77s", a mark that set new meet and new NYU records. lrv also cleared twenty-four feet for the first time in his life, finishing two inches behind the winning broad jumper, Fred Johnson of Michigan State. Despite a 54' 6" toss in the shot put, Lampert wound up second to Fuchs, who cleared fifty-six feet for another new meet record. NYU's tackle, "Moose" Marcolina, came through with a surprising fourth in this event, too. Kaplan also found himself playing second- fiddle to a record-breaker in the 220, where Seton Hall's Andy Stanfield travelled it in 20.6 seconds. The Violets' Gilhooley and Maiocco took third and fourth in the 440 Larry Ellis anchoring the NYU two-mile relay to a record-breaking performance in the Jr. National championships. won by Fox, and then came back with Nelson and Pearman, who grimly fought off Cornell despite his swollen knee, to win the mile Hugo chugs away. Another in a line of famous brother teams, Hugo, left, and Dick Maiocco relay, breaking their own NYU record with a breathtaking 3:'l4.4 clocking in the last event on the program. 0 June 'l'l saw Lampert win revenge with a meet-record toss of his own, ioining the handful of men in track history to clear fifty-six feet, and upsetting Jim Fuchs, who was to set a world record later in the season, for the Senior Metropolitan Title. Kaplan's 20.7 win in the 220 was also a record, but a faint five-mile tailwind disallowed it. Hugo Maiocco, getting faster by the day, reeled off a title-winning 47.6 quarter-mile, upsetting Gilhooley, among others, in the process. Hugo's younger brother, Dick, a first-year NYU student who won both the freshman intercollegiate and Junior Metropolitan championships at this distance, came home a strong fourth. I The NCAA championships at Los Angeles the following week saw California land all the teams in the first three-USC, UCLA, and Stanford, in that order. NYU wound up sixth on three second-place performances. Lampert again lost to Fuchs, but beat Stanford's much- publicized Otis Chandler with a 55' 2V4" throw. "Moon" topped Olympians Dike Ed- dleman and George Stanich in the high jump with a 6' 6" effort that landed him in a dead- lock for second. ln the quarter-mile, Pearman came from dead last to rush past Fox and just miss catching Moore, the winner, in forty- seven seconds flat. 0 In the National AAU quarter-mile, Reggie came home fifth, but another Violet, Hugo Maiocco, wearing the colors of the New York Pioneer Club with college out of session, staged a big surprise to break 47 seconds and wind up third. Since the first two were Jamaicans Sam Members of the all-time NYU sprint medley team: Jim Gilhooley, world record-holder of the flat-floor 600 yard distance, who ran the lead-off 440 leg, Hartley Lewis, 220, Ira Kaplan, 220, who went on to take the flat-floor world record for the 100, and Reggie Pearman, 880, and former national champion at the distance. 533 ffm TOP, Bob Fein takes home a title in the mile run, while, BOTTOM, l Teddy Foy gives up the N stick to keep the Violet i relay team running. l Rhoden and Herb McKenley, Hugo was the first American to finish. As a result, he won a European tour, along with Lampert, who placed behind Fuchs again, and decathlon man and high jumper Mondschein. Hugo won eighteen out of twenty races overseas, losing only to fellow Americans, and he returned to NYU in September the most improved quar- ter-miler in America. 0 The long cross- country grinds shrunk to the shorter indoor races and found Hugo Maiocco and Ira Kap- lan NYU team captains in action, as well as in name. Both slender seniors capped trends that were developed in the previous outdoor campaign. Ira won the Sr. Metropolitan AAU and Met Intercollegiate 60 yard dash crowns, anchored the NYU 1060 yard medley relay to a record victory in the Jr. Nationals, tied the NYAC meet record and ran the fastest sprint of the year with a 6.2 second effort, and dealt the "world's fastest human," Andy Stanfield, his only defeat of the season. C Hugo began hostilities by making the first cup race of his life a thing of beauty. He triumphed in the Knights of Columbus 500 over world record-holder Herb McKenley, lC4A titlist Frank Fox, and NYU stars Reggie Pearman and Jim Gilhooley, in the world- record fiat-floor time of 57.4 seconds, It was, of course, a new Violet record at the dis- tance. Maiocco kept right on going to cap- ture the Jr. and Sr. National 600 yard cham- pionships on successive tries, both also in meet-record time. I Stan Lampert, the great- est shot-putter in NYU history, whose only misfortune is that he was born the same time as Jim Fuchs, reestablished himself as second in all the world to the Eli giant. The huge Hall of Famer grabbed every 'I6 pound award in sight-that is, whenever Fuchs was not in sight. O Maiocco, Kaplan, and Lam- pert gave truly tremendous performances, but this trio could not compensate for a sur- prisingly shallow squad. With the days of the government-aided veteran a thing of the past, and the university administration show- ing a strange allergy to scholarships, the Von Ellingmen tumbled down, failing to re- tain a single team title. 0 In the Metro- politan lntercollegiates, the big three, Mai- occo, Kaplan and Lampert, won their spe- cialties, the latter hurling the shot for a new 52' 4Vz" mark. Contributing heavily, too, were Larry Ellis, who strode to a com- fortable 4:20.8 victory in the mile, and pole vaulters Ron Lennox and Dick Lynn, who wound up in a first place deadlock. The dis- tancers were also primed for this meet. Gor- don McKenzie finished a strong fourth in the mile, and Howie Jacobson, running his best race ever, and Bob Gruninger capped the third and fifth in the two-mile. But in that same race, the overall strength and balance of Manhattan reached its inevitable conclu- sion as Bill Lucas and Bob Checola finished one-two, the death blow for the defending Violets. O Most of the indoor track ac- tivity was spread over invitation meets in Madison Square Garden, New York, and Philadelphia and Boston. ln the Boston AA games, Kaplan, flying off the mark like a bird out of a cage, held off the fast-closing Andy Stanfield to win the sawed-off sprint, a mere 50 yards, in 5.4. An earlier trip to the Hub saw NYU's patched-up mile relay of elevated sprinter Bill Payne, converted hurdler Bob Hatch, and the two Maioccos, Dick and Hugo, set a meet record of 3:20.2. Returning to New York, Hugo, undefeated at the distance all year, rolled up a smooth victory in the Buermeyer 500 over Cornell's Charlie Moore, the NCAA quarter-mile titlist, and Canadian king Bob McFarlane. 0 However, the campaign reached its full in- tensity with the National and lC4A champi- onships, staged on the l8th and 25th of February. ln the Nationals, all of NYU's old glory was wrapped up in one race-the 600-with Maiocco again. Up against the greatest collection of national champions, world record-holders, and Olympic winners possible, Hugo raced out fast, ran away from all challengers, and finished in fine style to splatter the old meet record by .4 seconds, winning in l:1l.2. 0 ln the shot put, Lam- pert, a 225-pound, 6'4" senior, got off a tremendous heave of 55' 47s", less than four inches short of the legendary Al Blozis' record. But then there was Fuchs .... King James cleared fifty-six feet and Stan was only a second again. O The following week, at the IC4A championships, the NYU entry finished sixth with T4-4X5 points, as Michigan State successfully defended its team title. Maiocco missed catching the wav- ering Moore by a straining inch, and had to be content with second in his specialty. Furthermore, Kaplan, glued at the start, could not pick up more than a third in the sprint, TOP LEFT, Bob Hatch, who proved the find of the year on the second leg, and TOP RIGHT, soph Howie Jacobson fighting off Bill Lucas of Manhattan, eventual two mile winner. lra Kaplan takes the Met Intercollegiate 60 yard dash split-seconds be- fore his competitors pile into the tape-LEFT. behind Stanfield and Joe Cianciabella. The only pleasant surprise occurred in the vault test, where Ron Lennox hit 13 feet for a new NYU record, and found himself in a tie for third. O Other Violets worthy of mention, too, were Jr. Met hurdle king John Good- man and runnerup Bruce MacDonald, half- milers Ted Foy and Bob Feinberg, who fin- ished the campaign very strong, Frank Brooks, third in the Jr. Met mile, and broad jumper Frank Castro. O With Hugo Mai- occo, Kaplan, Lampert, Goodman, Feinberg, Brooks, and Gruninger all being graduated, the Violets figure to slow down still more. However, there is one remaining bright spot, the man who has survived thirty-six gradua- tions-Emil Von Elling. Adding to the general blackness of the sports picture at NYU during the 1949-50 year, the varsity swimming team, one which is almost always one of the city's best, could do no better than break even in the six meets which were entered in the record books before New York City's water shortage put the poolmen out of business. At that, one of the three wins was a forfeit, although, on the other side of the ledger, the losses were all hard fought affairs. 0 Early in the year, pros- pects for the season were fine with an even ten members of the previous year's Metro- politan championship varsity returning to the wars, and half a dozen new mermen were fished up by Coach Lew Handley and his very able assistant coach, Sal Variello. O At the top of the list of veteran perform- ers must go the name of Henry Dapkewicz. Dap was a one-man team-swimming in two or three events in almost every meet, and doing very well in most of them. A free- swimming c,, 9 Q21 43 l w I fo - ' s, -ll , S 4 , r .if . if l Q A 1' .fm 4 , 4' uv U 0 A if A ui-,,'ifQ w O U file? style artist, Dapkewicz swam in all of the various freestyle distances at one time or another, and anchored two of the club's re- lay teams as well. O Right behind Dap in importance to the club, although in an- other line altogether, was the diving star Lionel Martinez. The other diving chores were ably handled by Jack Korowitz, a young but expert performer who iust turned sophomore, and thus became eligible for the varsity at the mid-year mark, and veteran Joe Santore. ln the breast-stroke, the num- ber one man was Frank Ederer, and his but- terfly stroking partners were Seymour Boor- stein and George Simon. As for the boys who watch the ceiling while they swim, the back strokers, Joe Schwaninger, Stan Hayden, who became eligible in February, and Bob Otto took care of these clashes in good or- der. 0 The freestyle, of course, is where a swimming team is made or beaten, but Dapkewicz couldn't do it all by himself. He had tl1e help of the afore-mentioned Schwan- inger, Joe Vanore, Jim Coughlin, and the potentially sensational Al Silverman, who can really churn up those wavesf O Starting off their season with an easy win, the nata- tors took Brooklyn Poly into camp in the December 17th opener. Four days later, and apparently iust as strong, Brooklyn College proved a victim to the Violet attack, and when Fordham forfeited its scheduled meet by closing its pool, the mermen had a 3 and 0 record to boast about. But then things began to get tough. 0 On the 2lst of January, the club travelled out to Kings Point, and lost a heartbreaking meet to the Mariners. Both Silverman and Ederer were ill, and the other members of the team were forced to double up on several events. Then, facing one of the strongest teams in the East, the Scarlet of Rutgers, the Palisaders bowed again, 56-19, on February 8th, while the water shortage in New York was beginning to get critical. Three days later the club dropped its third in a row to Lafayette, with the meet decided in the very last relay, one which the New Yorkers lost by something less than a yard. And that was all. 0 The shortage of H20 forced the Evangeline Pool, the home of the natators, to close down, and the Violet cancelled all of its remaining meets-against Temple, CCNY, Manhattan and the University of Connecticut. The boys were blue, but they went out and found a place to practice for the Mets, the Brooklyn College pool, and the work paid off. Com- ing in second in the Mets behind the high- flying Merchantmen from Kings Point, a team which had plenty of water to practice in all season, the Handleymen at least salvaged something from an otherwise dismal year. O However, things for the future looked pretty bright. Starting with the '50-'51 year, the team would have full use of the new pool at University Heights, and with a real home to splash around in, there was no tell- ing how far the team would be able to go.

A revitalized cheering squad tried its best to raise a spark of spirit among the Violet fans at football and basketball contests with some new cheers and routines, and an occa- sional "ragging" stunt. Appearances at the year's pep rallies were also on the squad's schedule, but poor performances by the teams almost outbalanced the little student interest that existed. 0 Morton Winkler captained the squad and originated many of the new features himself.

Al Gelman and Art Chasin, the two veterans on the organi- zation, were supplemented by additions in the persons of Selly Belofsky, Norman Isko, Donald Chefetz, and Al Levitt. O One of the main handicaps to organized cheering at the different games was the fact that most of the Palisade cheers were not too familiar to the crowd. To correct this situation, plans were made to get the cheers to the student body by publishing them in the campus pub- lications. Another aim was to hold rallies both at the Heights and down at the Square, and this obiect was achieved for the Ford- ham football game. While the City rally was held downtown, the pre-Notre Dame hoop festivities were carried on in the Heights Commons. I There was one incident in the Garden which shamed the NYU rooters, and after that response was better. The cheerleaders went through a fancy routine in dead silence, and then a member of the press rose from his court-side seat, turned to face the Violet section, cocked his ear, and waited. The crowd caught on, they cheered. fencing Again the most successful group of NYU athletes, the Violet fencers, won the Inter- collegiate Fencing Association Three Weapon Championship in the 1950 campaign. Culmin- ating a brilliant dual-meet season with the capturing of the title, the Hall of Fame team found itself right at the top of collegiate fencing. O Led by Coach Hugo Castello, co-captains Ike Sanders and Daniel Rubin- stein, and by such outstanding performers V 9-Him I Ii X S 1 : 11 G .1:,a1?j.fLg,:-22 X , , :W i g A ti I as Larry Greenhaus, Sam Rubinstein and Al Perlman, the team rolled through the first seven opponents without a defeat. It gave an indication of its proficiency by downing Columbia, 15-12, in the first contest of the season. Triumphs over the Philadelphia Fencers Club and Rutgers followed. 0 Coming back to metropolitan competition, the Palisaders overwhelmed Brooklyn Col- lege, 20-7. Two more victories followed, one over Fordham, and the fencers travelled down to Annapolis to meet previously un- beaten Navy. In a thrilling match, the Violets won by 14-13. The next outing, against City College, broke the seven-meet winning streak. The Beavers wound up an unbeaten season, defeating the NYU squad by 16-11. Meeting Army at West Point, the Castello- men downed the Cadets, 17-10. O In the IFA championship meet, the team waged a close battle with Navy for three-weapon honors and won out by 73'!z to 72Vz. The two squads tied in both the epee and foil but the Violets edged the Middies in the sabre by 21-20 to take the overall crown. City College, Pennsylvania, Army, Princeton, Harvard, and Cornell were some of the other teams that trailed NYU in the quest for the most important win of the year. rifle ln the 1950 campaign the New York Univer- sity rif1e team once again seemed headed for high ranking regionally, and even nationally, in the collegiate shooting world. Captained by Al Untrecht and led by Marvin Good- friend, Steve Marrone, Dave Bakalar, and Lou Caldararo, the nimrods had a fine rec- ord in dual meet competition and appeared certain to win the metropolitan champion- ship. O The team, coached by Sergeant Michael Murray of the Heights ROTC de- partment for the fourth season, won six con- tests before it was defeated. The Palisaders opened up the season with an impressive 1376-1290 triumph over Cooper Union. ln the next outing, against Fordham, the Vio- lets improved their marksmanship and won by 1395-1350. Victories over Queens and City Colleges followed. O For their fifth straight win the Hall of Famers tallied the highest score ever made on the Heights range, 1,404 counters, and thus won over Columbia. The NYU riflemen topped Navy next, but in their seventh meet they were beaten by MIT, P A - '1 P' 1,A .,.,:I 1 fiyl -1 l 'fm N--N Q I which tallied 1,413 points for a new record. O In the most important local match of the season, the Violets rolled up their highest score of the season in beating St. John's, 1410-1385. The Redmen had the second-best record in the city and their defeat virtually clinched the met title for the Murraymen. O The Violets then scored a 1385-1370-1367- 1358 victory in a quadrangular meet with Kings Point, Cornell, and City College at the Beaver range. Dual meets with Brooklyn Poly, Kings Point, Lehigh, and Rutgers, and com- petition in the St. John's and National ln- vitation Tourneys closed out the season. tennis Those little-publicized athletes who make their appearance only in the sunny and mild spring days-the tennis players-last year continued the New York University tradition of fine records in that sport. The netmen won seven meets and lost only two contests in the course of the 1949 campaign. In addi- tion, they were unbeaten in six metropolitan meets. Army and Springfield were the only opponents who managed to down the Vio- lets. 0 The West Pointers opened the sea- son on a sour note for the NYU racquet- wielders, topping them by a 7-2 count. But the locals bounced back decidedly in the next encounter, trouncing Fordham by 9-0. With this clear win stowed in their lockers, the netmen took the next two frays, defeat- Iwi X3 lf' l-mi l? l. vf , Lg - P ' 45 A vlul?"'!!5Il ,.. il5?35:i5!5f557 X, ff X I , . we if ing Columbia, 6-3, and Temple, by the same score. This string of three victories was broken violently in the following outing, however, when the Springfield tennis players walloped the NYU squad, 9-0. O ln the next contest, the team made a comeback with a vengeance, tripping a Pace unit by 6-0. After that it was clean sailing, as they closed the campaign with three additional victories. These were triumphs over Queens College by 8-l, over City College, 7-2, and over Brooklyn, 6-3. O The aggregation that posted this impressive record for the spring 1949 competition was headed by captain Edmund Wilowski and included Heightsman Gerald Benstock. Other mem- bers on the squad were Albert Gautraud and Steven Wasserman, now iuniors, and Ken- neth Pearlman, now a senior. wrestling Although they hung up a record of five wins as against three setbacks, which was one defeat worse than the previous year's mark, the NYU wrestling team found the 1950 cam- paign a bumpy and unstable road. With the opening match against Yale postponed until February, the grunt-and-groaners did not get the taste of competition until the match with Temple right after the turn of the year. 0 Bill Taussig, who had a great year in 1949, showed even greater promise as he pinned his opponent early in the first period to pace the Violets to a 17-11 triumph. However, Bill suddenly dropped back to mediocrity, and his leadership role was taken over by heavyweight Howard Wolf and sophomore Leo McCallum. O The lack of work was re- flected in three successive defeats to Hofstra, Rutgers and Yale. At that point it looked as if the Palisaders were about to finish the season below the .500 mark, especially when it was announced that scheduled meets with Brooklyn Poly and Brooklyn College had been cancelled because the sport had been dropped by the two schools. O But last W' if E minute arrangements were made with the New York Aggies, Drexel and Maryland for replacement meets. The fact that the Violets went on to cop victories over these three substitutes should not be diminished, since the cancellations were figured to be breath- ers, whereas the wins were made against teams with big-time wrestling squads. U The season's finale was the annual match with City College. Like its counterpart in other sports, the meet turned out to be the highlight in the year's picture as the Hall of Famers tossed their way to a 17-10 slaughter of the Beavers. frosh basketball With a near perfect campaign hung up by the frosh cagers, it looked as if the varsity squad would be able to call upon needed replacements and reserve power for their next season. The little Violets compiled an 11-1 record, their only loss coming at the hands of Manhattan, 72-60, in a game which could be considered one played under ex- mah WSE tenuating circumstances. 0 The season started with a bang, as the frosh romped over Kings Point, 63-17. St. Peter's was the next to fall, 78-69, and against the usually dangerous Madison Square Boys Club, the iunior five won, 76-70, the closest of their victories. Hofstra became the fourth victim of a smooth-playing Violet squad, bowing 58-45, and St. Francis followed suit in a 67-58 decision. Then came Manhattan. 0 Coach Jinx O'Connor took this occasion to break his leg, and the team was coachless. Back-court star Bruno Eisner came up with a bad knee, Marty Schwemmer was out with scholastic difficulties, 6'6" pivot Bob Grona- chon became ineligible with the spring term, and the squad could not get straightened out. Although Mark Solomon tossed in 33 points, the Violets failed this once in the year, 72-60. 0 Solomon continued his amazing scoring, hitting for 31 as the Pali- saders toppled St. John's, 67-58, and they followed with their seventh win when they downed lona. Brooklyn College was routed next, 81-61, and the frosh concluded the campaign by crushing Fordham, 67-40, and City, 76-62, scoring almost at will in the last three games. Sal Mannino, Al Dinegar, and Frank Carrillo played in fine support of Monster Mark. frosh football Three weeks of practice and some thirty inexperienced players-could coach John Bunyan produce a miracle by converting ex-high school stars into college gridders in time? O Answers came quickly when the freshman football team started its campaign against Upsala in the second week of October. The Jersey- ites lost no time in teaching the Violet buds how to play collegiate ball. Re- covering a fumble on the opening kickoff, the Blue and Grey converted this miscue into a seven-pointer, and went on to win, 14-0. Fighting a spirited defensive game, the Hall of Famers were unable to disentangle themselves from a mire of misplays which stalled their offense from the start. I Brooklyn College was supposed to be next, and the frosh hoped to build their morale at the expense of the Flatbush lads. However, Kingsmen higher-ups, satisfied with the annual loss to the varsity, called off the contest. O Fordham was next on tap, still feeling its lumps and bruises from tussles with Boston College and Army, but the little Rams had enough left to topple Mr. Bunyan's charges, 27-6. The lone Violet score came when Sam Ross intercepted a pass and dashed thirty yards for the tally. John GilIigan's attempt for the extra point was blocked. Mike Buzzeo's passing, Jack Butler's punting, and the defensive play of Warren Holtzman, Bob Falcon, and Al Julian were particularly out- standing, but the Maroon gridiron machine was rolling. O Concluding the year with Rutgers at New Brunswick, the Violets were the victims of a 60-0 beating. Not once in contention because of four fumbles in their first five plays from scrimmage, the Palisaders distinguished themselves only in the punting department. undergraduate athletic board Taking a much greater part in the formation of NYU athletic policy than ever before in its history, the Undergraduate Athletic Board, composed of two elected representatives from each of the five undergraduate colleges, as well as the sports editors of the various student newspapers, finally dropped its cloak of quiet indifference and began to assert itself. Under the able leadership of Chairman Sid Jacobson, the Board advanced several sets of concrete proposals for the improvement of athletic conditions at New York University. Represent- ing the Heights, Alfred Gitman and Stuart Nelson of the Arts College, Eugene Jones and Philip Diamond of the College of Engineering, and Heights Daily News Sports Editor Yale Kamisar, provided the Board with valuable advice and information concerning the many divisions of the school's athletic program which are concentrated on the University Heights campus. O Among the other reports submitted to the Board there was one by Gitman on the varsity house, another on the origin of the present University athletic policy, stem- ming from the Carnegie Report, by Leslie MacMitchell, former Violet track great, and one more by Kamisar on the general decline of track, in addition to oral quizzings of such interested parties as Chick Halton, Joe Novotny, and Dante Gionta. O In a meeting attended by metropolitan newspaper sports writers, the Board outlined its ten-point program for the betterment of conditions. Included in this, and in the list of proposals sent to the University Council, were clauses advocating broader athletic scholarships, a varsity house to hold com- fortably all the athletes of the maior teams during their respective seasons of play, and the reorganization of the Board of Athletic Control. 0 Also sug- gested were the complete overhauling and refinishing of Ohio Field, the rental of Randalls Island as a home field for football games, the construction of a new gym at Washington Square, the transportation of athletes from the Square to the Heights by bus, and the arranging of athletes' programs, so that practice sessions might be attended by all the members of the teams. Eugene Jones and Alfred Gitman, senior Engineering and sen- ior Arts delegates to the Undergraduate Athletic Board, re- spectively. intramurals lntramurals reached a new peak at the Heights this year. Interest was keen and administration was efficient. Under the au- thorship and direction of Yale Kamisar, and his assistant, Stanley Lesser, the most spectacular production was planned. Clubs, houseplans, and fraternities all had their charges out on the stage in the many sports, including tennis, ping pong, track, football, and basketball. ln the past it was a rarity to see anyone not sporting a fraternity pin come out for auditions. This year, however, interest was so stimulated lthanks to the Heights Daily Newsi, that the directors had to do careful figuring to accommodate all hopeful enthusiasts. O The play got under way swiftly with the racquet wielders. Ping pong led the way, and tennis followed. There was unusual zeal in both tournaments, with Jack Bobker edging out Paul Pressman in the tennis play and Donald Spitz taking first honors in ping pong. I Act ll lplace: Ohio Field, time: Octoberi. Touch football took the spotlight, with only fraternities participating and as expected, Zeta Psi finished in front in the Saturday morning encounters. They went through the entire act with a spotless performance. Alpha Epsilon Pi, however, was right up there displaying some bruising line play and downfield blocking. Zeta Psi, never- theless, was too classy. The curtain closed on the second act and there was a round of applause for the players. 0 When Act Ill began, the scene was the same, but the time and the cast had been changed. A group of track aspirants was on the stage, as the indi- vidual and team events in this sport got under way. Again the boys from Zeta Psi won the team trophy, pretty much sweeping the field. The open events were fairly evenly distributed among both schools and the vari- ous classes. 0 The curtain went up for Act lV'. This time the scene was a dim gym- nasium in P. S. 91. The act opened with ten men running from one end of the stage to the other, bouncing a large ball in front of them. ln forty minutes they disappeared and ten fresh players came out, going through the same motions. In all, twenty-two teams par- ticipated in this basketball iamboree, eight of which wore fraternity costumes. O Delta Phi seemed to be scoring with the greatest frequency in the fraternity league, while the phenomenal Keston's Killers, who won their first two games by scores of 72-'I8 and 74-36, respectively, was by far the best of the club teams. Led by Captain Al Protzel, they drove their opposition right through the boards without suffering a loss. The big boys from Delta Phi found the going tougher, but man- aged to come out on top, with only one defeat to mar their record. In the finals, the Killers routed Royal House, and AEPi was trodden by the Delts. 0 Unfortunately, the fact that Ohio Field in springtime closely resembles a three-ring circus, with varsity baseball, football and track occupying the scene, prevented the fifth act from being performed this year. There was iust no room for a fourth ring-intramural softball-and so the expected grand finale was foregone. However, the tracksters and tennis players managed to come back for an encore before the curtain rang down for '49-'50. The play had been a success from start to breathless finish. 7 x .1 'XX xx ff 7 ff 4-f?1 -'-:if-3,24 X N12 fry ' ' --34 -3, ' ,Wy 'I fl. if ,xwxy T--X be ff . 65 I"-" 229 X 1 N ' 'nfwx - 2 'N ll i Fx J!

In order to carry out this obiective, the IFC issues regulations covering general fraternity activities, and is instrumental in their enforcement. 0 Specifically, the IFC possesses the right to enforce a strict code of rushing procedures, to remove inactive chapters from campus, to re- quest the removal of a chapter house, and also to determine which newly- formed fraternities may become members. In addition, other powers of a supervisory nature are wielded by the group. And, as a result of this potent position, the IFC is recognized by the University administration as the official spokesman for fraternity policy. 0 Athletic activity, an adequate and or- ganized social life, and academic studies constitute the essential elements of college life. Under the direction of the IFC, the thirteen member fraternities aim to advance all three. 0 Working within the Heights intramurals pro- gram, football and basketball leagues were formed and, along with two track meets, made up a tight schedule offering each fraternity man ample oppor- tunity for participation in athletics. 0 The IFC social calendar was also a full one, with the annual Formal, held this year at the Astor Roof, always a big date on campus. Many fraters attended the All-U Formal as well, and during the spring the annual beer party gave all a chance to gather to sing songs, go over memories, and round out a collegiate year. In the academic field, the IFC yearly presents a cup to that fraternity having the highest scholastic aver- age, and competition is usually keen. I A resolution of great significance passed this year was one supporting Student Council in its efforts to elimi- nate discriminatory practices in every campus society, and it was approved unanimously. The motion called for each fraternity to move toward discarding any bias that might be exercised by it in selecting its members, but no penal- ties could be threatened, since most of the Heights groups are governed in such matters by their national organizations. officers . . . 1949-1950 andrew a. tucker .......,,, ,,,.,..., p resident john a. greguoli, ir. .,,, ,.,,,,,, v ice-president paul m. nonkins ,,,,, ...., s ecretary-treasurer alpha epsilon pi Following the tradition of its international, the Heights chapter of Alpha Ep- silon Pi has achieved rapid growth. Founded as a colony in September of 1946, it was inducted into the international in March, 1948, and by Novem- ber, 1949 it was in possession of a house, as well as a large and active membership. 0 Alpha Upsilon Chapter looks back on the school year with pride. At the beginning, the entire house was redone and renovated, mainly by the brothers themselves. As the year went on, the chapter, again in the tradition of Alpha Epsilon Pi, entered into the whirl of academic and athletic activities, placing second in scholarship among the fraternities, and finishing in the finals in the basketball intramurals. 0 Social life was not neglected, with a number of dances and special dinners being given in the house, attend- ance at varsity games was high, and men of AEPi were prominent in extra- curricular work. In addition, recognizing their responsibilities in the post-war world, the brothers adopted and are supporting a war orphan. 0 The fra- ternity had its origin at Washington Square College in 1913. Since then it has enioyed a virtually unprecedented expansion and now comprises fifty-five active chapters throughout the country. Among its alumni are Nathaniel Gold- stein, Attorney General of the State of New York, and Beniamin Fine, Educa- tion Editor of the New York Times. alpha Herbert Weintraub Master Allan J, Hetfner Past Master Sheldon Buckler Lieutenant Master upsHon Arnold Aaron Recording Scribe Sheldon Bleicher Corresponding Scribe Howard Lesnick Exchequer Bruno Stein Treasurer 1950 Arnold Aaron Eugene Antelis Lewis Baltist lvy Blecher Arnold Finestone Allan J.

Theta Chapter, at the Heights, was begun in 1921, and has since produced its share of campus leaders. 0 Still hampered in its activity by the small size of the fraternity, the brothers are working to overcome the setback it received during the war. When war came, Theta, like many others, was deactivated, but in 1948 the chapter was reorganized with the aid of its alumni, and activity began anew. A strong, proud fraternity in antebellum days, the brothers are striving con- stantly to reach their former position. O Necessarily limited in interfraternity participation and campus representation, individual members of Theta of Alpha Phi Delta did enter various intramural events and are strong support- ers of extra-curricular societies. By means of dances and such other affairs as weekly bowling parties, the brothers maintain a healthy balance between their academic and social lives. 0 Unwilling to sigh after glorious days past, Theta looks forward to a secure future, knowing that even if membership is small, those few are knit all the more closely into ties of comradeship. After the low point of these past several years, and with experience gained in man- aging a fraternity, Alpha Phi Delta expects success. theta Joseph Affqnusio President Frank Squiffieri Vice-President Anthony Pumo Treasurer 1950 Joseph Atianasio Joseph Carbone Mariin Cifardi Guy Nuova Frank Squihieri 1951 Anfhony Pumo 1952 Albert Guido 1953 Veleo Morsocci 'James Marfucci 'Denoies pledge. alpha phi omega Although not a member of the lnterfraternity Council, Alpha Phi Omega has again put in an active year of service to the campus. Among the successful proi- ects carried out were: a book exchange operated at the beginning of each se- mester in the Bell Tower, where students were given an opportunity to dispose of unwanted texts and to purchase their required reading with large savings to themselves, a ticket agency, at which tickets for everything from operas to wres- tling matches could be picked up for list price plusatwenty-five cent commission, and the publication, in due time, of the Student Directory. Minor operations included the distribution of "Don't Cut Corners" signs at strategic points and the painting of the NYU Violet. O The social life of APO members did not suffer because of the hours spent in improving the campus and aiding their fellow-students, for the calendar during the past year was dotted with informal dances, parties, smokers, and stag affairs. Inbetween all of this, time was found for a March of Dimes drive for the Heights, the reestablishment of a lost and found department, and a mass collection of books for veterans' hos- pitals. The chapter's service and social year was concluded with the annual formal dinner-dance on April 28, this time held at the St. Moritz. Alumni brothers from 1942 on, the year the fraternity was founded at the Heights, came to renew acquaintances and to meet the current membership. gamma omega Stanley Frisch Edward Silver President Secretary Herbert Green Myron Weinberg Vice-President Treasurer Ronald Ruskin Historian 1950 Reuben Aronovitz Gerald Berger Philip Diamond Stanley Frisch Herbert Green Seymour Kruzansky Howard Shapiro Daniel Shargorod Edward Silver Herbert Simon Joel Solomon Myron Weinberg 1951 Irwin Altman Stanley Baum Milton Berkowitz Herbert Bootzin Noel Cohen Jacob Golden Mardig Hovanian Stuart Jacobson Barry Josephson Roland La Spina David Marcus Harold Marcus Gerald Moss Stuart Nelson Maurice Potosky Ronald Ruskin Edward Thaw Manfred Zirkmann 1952 Theodore Balsam Harold Barjian Norman Cardon Alan Decker Donald Eisele George Gabor Robert N.

This was only one of a large number of fraternity activities that made this year a richly rewarding one for the whole group. 0 Andrew Tucker was installed as president, and active brothers such as William Bocchino, Al Daniels, Larry Mann and Ralph Chiaro added prestige to the name of Delta Phi with their extra-curricular and academic accomplishments. Bocchino served as editor-in-chief of Quadrangle and was an honor student in engineer- ing, while Daniels, Captain of Scabbard and Blade, was designated a Distin- guished Military Student along with Chiaro. 0 Ice hockey, soccer, basketball, baseball, weight-lifting! and football all were part of the crowded athletic pro- gram of Gamma Chapter this year. New trophies were added to an already large collection by virtue of successful campaigns in interfraternity sports. O Dances highlighted the fraternity social season, with the Christmas affair occu- pying a particularly warm place in the memories of the brothers. In addition, the social program listed theater parties, smokers, and a yearly choral sing. Just before leaving for their Christmas vacations, all the brothers visited the veteran dorms, Gould Hall, and the other fraternity houses, singing the best wishes of the holiday season. gamma Andrew Tucker President Alvin Daniels Vice-President Kay Karoly Historian Frederick Ostby Corresponding Secretary William Ralhiens Treasurer 1950 Raymur Bennett William Bocchino Robert Buckley Ralph Chiara Alvin Daniels Robert Hawkins Kay Karoly Ludwig Larsen Andrew Tucker Eugene Wallenberger 1951 James Bourne Robert Davey Robert Deusinger David Johns Luis Junquera Clarence Mann Frederick Oslby William Rathiens Alfred Sirbello Garnet Spahr Roy Weber Edwin Yablonski 1952 Serge Barton Arnold Holt George Lang Edwardo Serra Robert Sieghardt Herbert Stocker Robert Villa 1953 'Robert Cunningham 'N.

Inactivated during the war, and listing only six active brothers at the start of the current year, the chapter augmented this basic membership with a large number of pledges, and is well on its way toward regaining its pre-war status of youthful drive and leadership, and top scholastic achievement. 0 This emphasis on scholarship has been the touchstone of Beta Chapter since its organization in 1917, six years after the first Kappa Nu Chapter was founded at the University of Rochester. Twelve active chapters in colleges of the United States now comprise the membership of the national Kappa Nu organization. 0 The Heights chapter points proudly to its well- known alumni, including top-flight sports announcer Mel Allen, and Jay Gorney, composer of the Broadway hit "Touch and Go," and to the strong professional element in its active alumni club. 0 Although hampered by a small group of members, Kappa Nu conducted a fairly extensive social and athletic program, keeping pace with the activities of larger fraternities on campus. And, con- current with its drive to rebuild membership, Kappa Nu is searching for a house or an apartment that will serve the needs of its members, pledges and alumni. Fraternity leaders are confident that the challenge can be met by the concerted effort of Kappa Nu brothers. beta Irving Wasserman President Edward Kaplin Vice-President Jack Gottfried Secretary Herbert Wolfson Treasurer 1950 Bernard Rosen Stanley Watsky 'I951 Jack Gottfried Edward Kaplin Irving Wasserman 1952 Herbert Minster 'Harold Unger Herbert Wolfson 1953 'Ira Berman 'Sheldon Estrin 'Elliot Polsky 'Howard Rosenbaum 'Herbert Roth 'Denotes pledge. ,W ,, I 4. ., T?

O Having iust purchased a new house, one block south of the campus, the chapter utilizes it as a nucleus for its social and athletic altairs. Brothers of Gamma Zeta have participated in all the intramural tournaments held during the year and have been active in many campus organizations, including the Radio Club, SAM, and YMCA. I Gamma Zeta is one of one hundred and twenty undergraduate chapters of Kappa Sigma in many of the prime universities in America. The national organization, since its introduction into the United States iust after the Civil War, has grown from its five founders at the University of Virginia to a membership of fifty-five thousand undergraduates and alumni. C Like its historic chapter, organized in Italy over five hundred years ago, the brothers of Kappa Sigma's Gamma Zeta Chapter believe that they have remained a society of students with high ideals and a traditional fraternity spirit.

At its new house, located at 2190 Andrews Avenue, the chapter is carrying on its fifty- eighth year of fraternal organization with a diversified program of social, athletic and educational events. 0 Nu Epsilon has always fulfilled its high aims at the Heights by being particularly active in the extra-curricular affairs of the campus. In the post-war period, it has numbered among its brothers, two members of the varsity baseball team, a president and senior representative of Student Council, and many others who have been members of engineering and religious societies and class committees. This year the chapter has kept up its fine record with two of the brothers, John Greguoli and James White, serving, respectively, as senior class secretary and sophomore representative on Student Council. 0 The national fraternity itself-the thirteenth oldest Greek letter society in the United States-was established at old Jefferson College lnow Washington and Jeffersonl on May 1, 1848. From the six original founders, the fraternity's membership has grown to forty-seven thousand who have been undergraduates at seventy-nine of the foremost colleges and universities in this country and Canada. Like its national, Nu Epsilon at the Heights strives con- tinually to make better one of the best Greek letter societies. nu epsilon William Ochse Presidenl John A. Greguoli Vice-President John J.

However, that week was only a part of a full, busy year for the fraternity. 0 The large brick house on Loring Place was painted and redecorated in the summer months, a new lawn was laid, and the fence and roof repaired. Important additions were also made to the basement game room, in keeping with a desire to make the house as comfortable as possible. O Social activities were extensive, including a parents' tea, several dances, and a weekend party each semester. In the fall the party was held in coniunc- tion with the IFC, winding up with the brothers serving their girls Sunday din- ner. The high point of the spring party was a formal at the New Rochelle Shore Club in April. During the year, Delta Chapter supper guests were Deans Baer and Knedler, Major Rafferty, and Professor Fowkes, who spoke informally on diverse topics. O Brothers prominent in extra-curricular work included Fred Lafer, member of Scabbard and Blade and Alpha Pi Mu, Bob Youdelman, vice- president of Green Room, Max Kobryner, in Eta Kappa Omega and secretary of Huntington Hill, and Irwin Mendelsohn, on the varsity track team. delta Fred Lafer President Myron Wald Vice-President Harry Schwamm Treasurer Howard Brown Corresponding Secretary Bernard Finkelstein Recording Secretary 1950 William Goldstein Seymour Siegel Bernard Klein Robert Smith Maximillian KobrynelGerald Vure Fred Lafer Myron Wald lrwin Mendelsohn Leonard Worthman Melvin Michelson Robert Youdelman Harry Schwamm 1951 Robert Bauman 'Theodore Goldbloom Fred Bissinger Donald Block Howard Brown Bernard Finkelstein Eugene Fox Frederick Miller Gilbert Rosenzweig 'Alvin Shulman Ernest Wollen 1952 Jules Applebaum Charles Baum Lowell Flame 'Jay Gaines 'Solomon Hanan Matthew Harris 'Robert Katz Steven Lowell 'Jerold Rappaport Herbert Rich Norman Rosenblum Norton Schwartz 'Dale Silver 'William Taft 1953 'Mark Eisenstein 'Emanuel Fishberg 'Howard Gartinkel 'Irving Goodman 'Irwin Kosover 'Lawrence Levine 'Denotes pledge.

The warmth emanates not so much from the competent heating system, but from the lively and genial spirit always associated with the name of Pi Lam. 0 A non-sectarian fra- ternity which actually practices non-sectarian principles, Pi Lambda Phi had another successful year on campus, chalking up new achievements in scholar- ship, participation in campus events, and social and athletic activities. Lawrence J. Marcus was chosen by the Class of 1950 as its leader, and other fraternity members, including Paul Nonkin, Lewis Nieberg, and William Furman, have made their mark in campus politics and extra-curricular activities. I Begin- ning their season with a rushing smoker and a successful rushing dance, Pi Lam officers and members went all-out in a social calendar that included a Fiesta Night, a father-son beer party, and a weekend party reminiscent of old "ice college" days. A strong Pi Lam delegation flocked to the All-University Formal, and every fraternity member gathered for the traditional Thanksgiving Day dinner. This year guests at the affair included Deans William B. Baer and Thorndike Saville, and Professors Thomas R. Adam and Alan Coutts. A well- rounded athletic program brought Pi Lambda Phi into prominence in intramural athletics as well. gamma William S. Furman Rex Alvin Zazeela Archon Peter Berman K. O. E.

Mem- bers of the Delta Chapter also have an especially proud tradition, since the chapter, founded in 1837, was the first Greek Letter Society at New York Uni- versity. At present the Heights chapter is one of a well-knit group of twenty- nine active chapters located throughout the United States and Canada. 0 Social and athletic activities occupied a large place in the Psi U schedule this year. Social functions included a series of formal and informal dances, mass attendance at football games, a beach party and several hayrides, while on the athletic front members carried the Delta Chapter colors to success in both the interfraternity football and softball competitions. No slouches when it comes to participation in campus activities, Psi Upsilon members in both colleges are active supporters of clubs such as the YMCA, Hill Historical, Glee Club, Psi Chi, Young Republicans, Draper Society, Society of Automotive Engineers, and many others. 0 Members of Psi Upsilon point with iustifiable pride to the distinguished leaders in American political, educational, and cultural life who have been members of the Delta Chapter. Among these men are American composer and music critic Deems Taylor, Reginald Werrenrath, noted concert baritone, and Henry Noble MacCracken, former president of Vassar College.

O Composed of twenty brothers, the chapter is one of the most closely knit groups on the campus. Since 1948, it has rented two rooms in a boarding house at the Heights, but now it has decided to acquire larger quarters. To this end, the fraternity has devised a "'five-year plan" consisting of dances and other cam- pus events, designed to raise funds for a new house. The first of these altairs, the Campus Carnival, was held in December in the City Center Casino. 0 Even though Gamma Upsilon concerns itself primarily with promoting fraternal spirit, it is not indifferent to campus affairs: Jay Klein, one of its members, is iunior representative to the Student Council, and for many years a large number of its brothers have been active on the Lawrence House Committee. Two other brothers, Stanley Burrows and Herbert Paley, have always placed high in their classes with their excellent scholastic averages. O The brothers of Gamma Upsilon Chapter of Tau Delta Phi, organized in 1938, anticipate many more successful years within the social and intellectual spheres of New York University Heights. :F gamma upsilon Sanford Kaplan President Harvey Smith Vice-President Andrew Fier Corresponding Secretary Herbert Paley Recording Secretary Jay Klein Treasurer 1950 Stanley Burrows Bernard Gold Martin Goodfriend Sanford Kaplan Stanley Levin Elliot Picket Harvey Smith 1951 Irwin Blanck Malcolm Davis Harvey Fader Andrew Fier Jerome Kerner Jay Klein Albert Klutch Herbert Paley Alvin Resnick Gerald Rosenberg 1952 Louis Kassan Melvin Moskowitz tau epsilon phi With the opening of its new house on University Avenue, and the initiation of a pledge class that brought its total membership close to fifty brothers, Epsilon Gamma Chapter of Tau Epsilon Phi marked a crowded and active year. Formed only two years ago, and initiated into the national organization last June, the group has now completed its probation period and will take its place as a full- fledged campus fraternity. 0 Sheldon Rothenberg, Chancellor of the group since its inception, is the man mainly responsible for the phenomenal growth of the Heights chapter. Starting literally from scratch, he organized the nucleus of the fraternity, won it a place on campus and in a national organization, and, with the aid of many brothers, recruited pledges and devised a successful social and athletic program. O It is reasonable to expect that with so many members, the fraternity should have students active in dozens of clubs, and that is precisely the case. The Heights Daily News, VlOLET, Marshall Society, Glee Club, Scabbard and Blade, Psychology Club and many others are sup- ported by Epsilon Gamma men. O Although members participate in a varied athletic and social program, the names of over a dozen brothers that appeared on the last Dean's List indicate that the goal of high scholarship is also being maintained. Tau Epsilon Phi looks forward to even more successful years in the future. epsilon gamma Sheldon Rothenberg President Alfred L.

O An advocate of participation in campus affairs, Gamma Chapter has assumed the leadership in many of the key extra-curricular func- tions. Student Council President Jesse Margolin, president of Perstare et Praestare Allen Weisse, basketball manager Larry Shapiro, Hill Historical president James Schlesinger, and an assistant sports editor of the Heights Daily News, Martin Salzman, are only a small percentage of the Zeta Beta Tau brothers active in various organizations. O Athletics play a large part in college and in Zeta Beta Tau life, and Gamma Chapter is proud of its collection of sports trophies garnered over years of contest in fraternity intra- murals--football, track, baseball, and basketball. But during the year, the large house on Loring Place was also the scene of many weekend dances, beer parties, and special affairs, so that the social part of Gamma brothers' lives was not neglected. O The oldest Jewish fraternity in the country was founded at CCNY in 1898 and, after over a half-century of growth, now includes some forty-five chapters and fifty alumni clubs in the U. S. and Can- ada. This year Zeta Beta Tau reached a post-war peak in membership, but further expansion is expected. gamma Jerome Feinberg Mortimer Glotzer President Secretary Alvin Kahn James Schlesinger Vice-President Treasurer 1950 Joseph Cohen Jerome Feinberg Lawrence Galison M.

Since that time Phi Chapter has been one of the university's leaders in scholarship, athletics, and in the social life of the campus. Again at normal peacetime strength, the Greek letter society has a membership of about thirty-five brothers who are espe- cially active in intramurals and in social functions held at the Heights. O In keeping with the fraternity's policy of combining social phases of college life with the more important scholastic side, the national society organized an educational foundation in 1944, which promotes scholarship by granting awards to members and to other students for high achievement. O Zeta Psi has again this year shown its athletic prowess on track and field, winning the four hundred yard fraternity shuttle relay in October and taking the fraternity football championship the following month. However, athletics is not the only sphere in which the fraternity excels, its brothers have been numbered among many undergraduate clubs and societies, including the YMCA, the Glee Club, and the Society of Automotive Engineers.
