' fflis ?s The 1951 Football season was eagerly awaited for two reasons : Swarthmore was expected to field a winning grid team and to play its games on the new Clothier field behind the field house. Neither of these expect ations was realized but the season proved to be an anomaly in that it was both dis- appointing and promising. Although the season closed with a two and five log, all indications pointed to success in future years. The squad was augmented by another bright bunch of freshman prospects which included Henry Bode, Tom Simkin, Dick Burtis, Chuck Cooper and Dick Kohls on the line and Bill Bruce and Paul James in the backfield. These boys, although as green as the sod on unused Clothier field at the outset of the season, dis- played their wares in fine fashion at the close of the fall and are to be de- pended upon for creditable performances in the fu- ture. The fine all-round performances of Bill Jones and Bunky Blake and the scintillating running of Nick Cusano proved to be the highlights of the grid year. The 1951 season saw the Garnet gridmen win na- tional acclaim on the basis of their conduct if not their ability. Last year ' s Haverford game saw for the first time in the history of football a game scored on the basis of the conduct of the players and fans FOOTBALL as well as the more usual playing tactics. If a victory over Haverford is the mark of a successful then this season must god down in the record books as a double victory because the ' fords were vanquished 19-7 on the f eld of combat and 45-43 on the field of conduct. Last fall coach Lew Elverson junked his T-forma- tion in favor of a Princeton type single-wing offense which showed to advantage with Bill Jones at tail- back. Dave Hansen and Mike Freilich at fullback, little Nick Cusano at wingback, and Frank Oski un- til injured in the blocking back position. Dana Swan took over the signal calling chores after Oski ' s injury in the Johns Hopkins game. The offensive line had Dave Harvey and Bunkey Blake at end. Hank Bode and Tom Simkin at tackle. Jay Ochroch and Bill Walls at guard, and Captain Bob Asplundh at center. Big Asplundh received the Maxwell Award for his splendid performance in the Haverford game and proved to be a worthy succes- sor to his father, the great Lester Asplundh, by his fine play all year. The Garnet opened its season by losing a heart- breaker in ninety-degree heat to a fine Juniata ball club, 13-7. Swarthmore had a touchdown nullified because of a freak pass interference call, and this tough break proved to be the ball game. Bill Jones indicated in the opener that he would be an offensive standout all year by spearheading the Garnet attack on its many long marches. Dave Hansen, transfer from Columbia, scored the lone touchdown for Swarthmore. Lew Elverson took his boys on the second Satur- day of the season to Staten Island where they won their game, downing Wagner College 75-70. The Garnet looked impressive in this victory by coming from behind twice to clinch the game. The following Saturday saw the squad play their best game of the sea- son although they bowed to Ursinus 25-20. Nick Cusano put on a one-man show, gaining close to 150 yards on his own. Although Swarthmore domi- nated play in all four periods, a few breaks by the Bears turned the tide of battle. The game featured fine passing by Bill Jones and splendid defensive work by the entire forward wall. Three successive defeats followed the bright showing of the early part of the season. A powerful Franklin and Marshall team rolled over the Garnet 5-13. The following week Johns Hopkins routed Swarthmore 39-6 and then Drexel came along with a 35-6 victory. Neither of these clubs deserved to win by such a large margin of victory, but the boys just lacked that necessary spark. Bill Jones, Bunky Blake, Bill Bruce, Bill Walls, and Nick Cusano played well even in defeat. A return to early season form occurred in the traditional finale against a winless Haverford eleven. After a scoreless first quarter played entirely in Ha- verford territory, Swarthmore got rolling and scored twice in quick succession in the second period, with Bill Jones, Nick Cusano, and Mike Freilich bearing the brunt of the offensive burden. In the third quarter Haverford finally managed to get posession of the ball in Swarth- more territory as a result of a re- covered fumble, and they quickly drove across for a score. Swarthmore scored again in the same period and the game ran its course without any further excitement, although Swarth- more Ev Burn attempted a field goal in the last quarter. Final score, 19-7. The Haverford game marked the last contest for seniors Bob Asplundh, Dick de Charms, Dave Hansen, Ev Burn, Chuck Valsing, and lohnny Miller. The offensive backfield proved more than ade- quate. With the majority of these boys returning and with the employment of the revitalized attack, look for big things from the Garnet eleven. VARSITY: Back row, kft to right . . . Dunn, coach . . .

The Garnet soccer team after getting off to a flying start had its wings clipped a few times at the end of the season but still emerged with a very fine record. After compiling seven straight victories the team bowed to Navy 2-0, and ten days ( y y , -r- T ' ' ' ' upset by an underdog Haverford team 5-1. This latter S( )( ( H K ' " ss through the southern division of the Middle Atlantic Con- ference into a four-way tie between Swarthmore, Haverford, Lehigh and Rutgers. In the first round of the play-offs the Garnet got sweet revenge for its previous defeat by whipping Haverford 3-2, but a defeat by Lehigh, beaten during the regular season, eliminated them from the finals. Freshman Jim White turned out to be the big gun on offense as he scored 15 goals to pace the hooters. Dave Wilkison, another freshman, gave indications of brillance, and he along with newcomers Dick Kipp and Frank Martin should be a big help in the seasons to come. Inglesis, another newcomer, won himself a starting berth by virtue of his outstanding footwork. Captain Steve Clark along with a vastly improved Joe Carroll and husding George Place were the bright lights and were complimented by a whole array of fine ball-players including Art Lewis, Andy Lewis, Stu Lohr, Tom Jones, John Smucker, Phile Swayne, Sediono Serjo and LI. O. Atuanya. The Dunnmen started things off on the right foot by defeating an Alumni team loaded with great talent. The Garnet then defeated a strong Penn team 3-1, in the second contest, and rolled on to victories over Rutgers, Prince ton, Unrinus, Stevens and Lehigh. The Lehigh game was probably the high spot of the season as the squad played inspired ball and came from a .3-1 deficit to down the Engi- neers 4-3. The injury suffered by George Place in the Stevens game proved to be of great importance in the late season decline of the team. JUNIOR VARSITY: Back row, kjt (o riciht . . . Hartzell . . .

The loss of Cheyney, Spaulding and Stabler left a hole that could not be filled by the remaining members of the team. Captain Ave Har- rington continued his fine winning form, always leading the team, and winning three dual meets. Behind him, George Hastings, whose meteoric rise to star- dom was the feature of the year, Chuck Loucks, and newcomers Mike Dukakis, John Strauss and Charlie Sullivan were the usual scorers. The team wound up with a won two, lost four record, beating Lafayette and F M. Coach Jim Miller had his hands full developing stars of future years from the great number of Freshmen who turned out for the sport. CROSS COUNTRY HOCKEY ■Back TOW . . . Nichol . . . Dun . . .

The Garnet matmen won 18-12 over Johns Hopkins for the first time in the rivalry between the schools. Hank Bode, a bright freshman pros- pect, and Mike Freilich proved themselves the " winningest " members of the squad. Bode tasting defeat only twice during the course of the season. Captain Mike Laws held down the 123-pound slot and ended the season by copping a medal in the Middle Atlantics. Howard Temin filled in at this weight while Mike was ill. Other members of the squad included Flip Phillipi- des (130), Bill Shepard, Pres Brown (137), Buck Jones (147), Bob Fetter, Gene Heaton (157), Mike Freilich, George Hastings (167), Hank Bode (177), and heavyweights U. O. Atuanya and Ben Beattie. Ben was a pleasant surprise in his heavyweight slot and was showing great improvement at the close of the season. played well during the course of the season. Captain Place proved a fine leader, but the squad just couldn ' t cope with the competition because of their lack of height. Coach Howard Sipler got fine performances from Babe Hall- burg and Dave Wilkison, both freshmen with bright futures. Bill Pratt and Dana Swan proved themselves capable reserves while Dick Millman displayed flashes of brilliance during the course of the season. BASKETBALL WINTER 1952 The Garnet quintet experienced a rather dismal season posting victories over only Lehigh, Ursinus, Drexel, and Haverford in a fo.urteen-game card. The season ' s only bright spot was the scintillating play of prolific Hoosier Joe Carroll. Joe was up among the leaders for District scoring honors and was rewarded with a berth on the All-Philadelphia squad. Joe completed the season with a 21.9 average. Tom Jones helped carry the Garnet scoring burden with a total of 145 points for the season. Cap- tain George Place and Marc Merson JUNIOR VARSITY Back row . . . Preston . . . C. Cooper . . .

SWIMMING Jimmy McAdoo ' s mermen from high above Crum ' s water had a mod- erately successful season, winning four and losing four. Lehigh and Delaware trounced the Garnet splashers while Franklin and Marshall, and Lafayette gained victories that were in doubt at least during part of the meet. West Chester was edged by Swarthmore 50-39 in one of the season ' s better meets. Dickinson, Temple, and PMC were swamped in the Swarthmore wake. The Garnet then took a fifth place in the Middle Atlantics behind Lafayette, Lehigh, Delaware, and F M, the four teams which beat Swarthmore during the regular season. Highlights of the season were Dave Potter ' s record-setting 24.5 second 50- yard freestyle win and John Ridland ' s 1:46.3 150-yard individual medley win which also set a college record. Both records were set in the Lafayette meet. Swarthmore ' s one-sided victory over Dickinson was featured by John Rid- land, who normally competes in the backstroke and breaststroke events, winning the 440 freestyle. In the first meet of the sea- son against Temple, John Strauss won the 440 although he hadn ' t swum at all for four months. John finished the season with wrestling. Co-captain elect Hans Friedericy broke 25 seconds several times in the 50-yard dash. Bill Holloway con- tinued to improve his backstroke performances of last year. Co-captains Dick Tomlinson and Ross Snyder raced commendably in the freestyle sprints, along with sophomore Rich Laux, and the freestyle relay. Bill Reid conquered his teammate George Chang in the 200- yard breast stroke for the first time in three years of varsity competition. Scott Cooper and Art Levy han- dled most of the freestyle dis- tance events. Two newcom- ers, Tim Craig and Cott Ho- bart, were McAdoo ' s divers. McAdoo is looking for bet- ter things for next year from a team which may not have as much depth as this year ' s team, but should display more of that essential team spirit.

Jones Although the Dunnmen only posted one victory this spring, the season might be termed a success. The reason for this seeming contradiction is the fact that the lone victory came over Haverford in the closing game. The team played all along a better brand of ball than their record would indicate. Paced at the plate by the big bat of firstbaseman Dick Roeder, he was assisted by the able stickwork of Tom Jones and Elmer Winkler. The infield consisted of Roeder at first, smooth fielding John Bennett at second, freshman Babe Hallberg at short and Captain and spark-plug George Place at third. Patrolling the outer gardens were veteran Elmer Winkler, sensational Chuck Cooper and Rusty Snyder. Tex Clendenin and Arnold Ludwig also saw action. Behind the mask was Dana Swan, dependable holler-guy for the Garnet nine. On the mound during the course of the season was bell-weather Tom Jones, Leighton Whitaker and Paul James. Both James and Whitaker were pleasant surprises and por- tend better things for next spring ' s diamondmen. BASEBALL . . . Cooper . . . Macy . . . Tacuber, manager, second row . . . Hallberg . . .

Captain and All-American Bunky Blake led the 1952 stickmen to the Pennsylvania-Delaware State Champion- ship. Highlights of the season were the opening game victory over a strong Washington College squad and a later thrilling see-saw tilt with Drexel. The season log showed eight victories and two defeats. The defeats came at the hands of the Army juggernaut, 15-8, and a heart- breaking loss to Loyola with a score of 11-10. Standouts on a fine all-round team were Bunky Blake, who led the nation in scoring, Orville Wright, runner-up for national assist honors, and Halsey Frost, tricky little attackman. Until the time of his injury, Steve Clark displayed a scrappy brand of ball and was reward- ed with a berth on the South squad in the annual North-So-uth All-Star con- test. Bob Greist, Fred Kvle, Dave Har- vey and Joe Carroll turned in commendable performances in mid-field positions and were ably assisted in the de- fensive posts by Bill Fitts, Bob Rogers, Phil Swayne and Pete Heagle. Bright freshman additions to the team were Al Douglas, Larry Handley and Jim White. Bill Hollo- way and Tim Craig proved themselves fine substitutes in the attack of Coach Ave Blake ' s Garnet ten.

Lew Elverson ' s 1952 edition of the Springclads won one triangular meet, that with Drexel and Ursinus, and one dual meet with Johns Hopkins and ended up on the short end of the score in four other contests. The team had many fine individual performers but lacked the necessary depth to walk away from the opposition. Standouts on the squad were the javelin hurling of Bill Jones, who bettered his own school mark with a toss of 192 ' 7 ' 2 " , and Tony Mason, freshman speedster who set a school mark in the 220 with a clocking of 21.8 seconds. Avery Harrington was a dependable performer in the mile and two mile events and Bob Howell could always be counted on in the pole vault. John Hopfield in the high jump and co-captain Ev Burn in the shot were consistently above average in their showings. Co-captain Laurie Seaman turned in many fine broad jumps. Ken Roberts, Rich Laux and Bill Bruce proved themselves fine cindermen, and Coach Elverson has much to look forward to in the coming year. TRACK F« icj. tS.tH«5 ,i .» " % .

Taylor . . . Paterson; The tennis team proved one of the few bright spots in an other- wise poor sports year on the Garnet campus. Dropping only two contests, they piled up ten victories in the spring. The losses came at the hands of Penn and Haverford. Sparking the squad was Freshman whiz Tim Coss, who com- pleted the season undefeated. Coss rose to great heights in beating Hubinger of Lafayette, previously undefeated and con- sidered one of the best players in the state. Captain Studs Taylor played the number two slot and played it well. Went- worth, Lande, Jones and Haskell, in that order, filled out the singles berths. Dave Haskell, also a freshman, played excellent tennis and can be counted on in the future. Taylor and Coss teamed up in the number one doubles combination and went through the season undefeated. Wentworth and Jones played in the number two doubles and Joe Levine teamed with Haskell in the third. Highlight of the year was the 5-4 victory over Army in the opening match of the season. The match was in doubt until Haskell and Levine finished their doubles game under impending darkness. The high standard of performance established at this time remained throughout the spring to plague all other opponents. TENNIS Standiiic! . . . Cratsky . . . Rorer . . coach, kneeling . . .

Stetson, The 1951-1950 Swarthmore golf season was one of the most dismal in recent years, the squad being able to manage only one wi n in eight tries. The loss of Chuck Reilly and Mike Remorenko, the inexperience of most of the new members and the inclement weather which cut practices to a minimum all had a large hand in keeping the Garnet from hitting the winning road. Nick Meyer, playing number one, and Bob Asplundh, number two, both showed a tremen- dous amount of improve- ment over last year but they chanced to meet opponents whose golf was far too steady and sharp. At vari- ous times during the season other mem- bers of the squad displayed brilliance in flashes and left the door open at the end of the year for hope that the coming season would show a great improvement.
