Time passes quickly when there is activity, happiness, and pleasant
friendships. So it has been with the Class of 1956. Four seemingly short years
elapse and the typical college senior begins to reflect on scores of happy,
thrilling, funny, embarrassing incidents which have been crowded between a
strange, uncertain Freshman Week and an exciting, fun-packed June Week.
It is these incidents and special occasions which the Senior Class has attempted
to present to the college in this Tower Echoes of 1956.
But we hope, however, that this yearbook will be more than a mere
diary of college events. We would rather it be thought of as a symbol of a
class whose honest efforts and goals were not only to draw from college
resources but also to give in order to contribute in some small way to the
State Teachers College at Towson.
We would like to think, too, that the presence of the Class of 1956 at
Towson has been an element which has contributed in growth in individuals
and in the college community. It is necessary that this attitude-even though,
perhaps, a bit egotistical-be true. If it is not, then we feel that our four years
stay can not be justified.
As graduates, we gratefully thank the college for the opportunities
afforded us. We will not forget Towson, we hope Towson will not forget us.
With these thoughts, the Class of 1956 presents to the State Teachers
College at Towson, our yearbook-another chapter in the history of a fine

Mr. Desautels graduated from the' University of Pennsylvania
with a B.S. degree and later returned to receive a M.S. in education.
While a student at the university, he was the first president of Alpha Phi
Omega, a member of the Men's Educational Association, and belonged
to the Kappa Phi Kappa fraternity.
At present, Mr. Desautels is instructor of chemistry at S.T.C. He
is on the Administration and Standards Committee, and the Faculty
Standing Committee. The Senior Class will long remember him for his
serving as class adviser.
Mr. Desautels is collecting a micro-mineral collection for the
Smithsonian Institution, his collection, which numbers 2500 specimens,
has been declared 'Gthe best in the country." He is curator of minerals
for the Maryland Academy of Science and is president of the board of
directors of the Maryland Mineral Society.
His hobby has long been that of growing and experimenting with
African violets, this hobby has proved both enjoyable and profitable.
To you "ML D," we proudly dedicate the Tower Echoes of 1956.

It is the outstanding person who, finding in
himself the capacity and ability to lead and help
people, enters and successfully ensues a profession
dedicated to the furtherance of society's growth. In
the president of our college, Dr. Earle T. Hawkins,
we see such a person. His success has undoubtedly
been the product of his sincere interest, faith and
understanding in people, his desire for the realiza-
tion of a bigger and better college, and his interest
in improved and increased opportunities for the
members of the college.

Money comes in, schedules go out, systems are
revised, curriculums change. And how and where
does all this happen? Some may refer to them as
the "red tape chambers" Cnecessary though they
may bel, to others they assume the formal title of
"Administrative Offices". At the core of the college,
live small, but busy, offices operate to improve and
maintain organization and efiiciency. Mr. Karl
Moser, heading the Business Office, balances the col-
lege budget. Dr. Rebecca Tansil and her staff in the
Admissions Oiiice are responsible not only for ad-
mitting new students, but also for sending represen-
tatives of the college to neighboring areas. Little
explanation is necessary to describe the work of
Registrar Flossie Jones, whose ollice perhaps more
than any other, is known directly to students. Dean
of Students, Orielle Murphy too has an indispensable
job of ac-ting in a supervisory capacity for all stu-
dent activities. Dr. Kenneth E. Browne, Dean of
Instruction, is the head figure in curriculum planning
All necessary, all functioning in their individ-
ual duties.-Here is the Administration!

Q , I
Work done in a college--goes farther than
planning and execution. A good bit of technical work
-typing,mimeographing and other secretarial duties
is not a small part of an efficiently run college.
Throughout the Administration Building many
women sit behind desks doing work which enables
the plans of the "higher-ups" to be run smoothly.
Few know the intricacies of their jobs, but judging
from the output of the various oifices, these women
have proven themselves a competent staff on which
the Administration can rely.

No Kimberly diamond, no pearl of the An-
tilles can match the treasure trove of a simple, quiet
library. The walls and buildings housing our rows
of books do not shimmer with the irridescent glow
of gems, but effervesce, nontheless, with the thoughts
of giant and charlatans among men. Thoughts that
are imperfect and incomplete-thoughts that en-
circle the globe and poke impudently into the sec-
rets of the sprawling universe--cohabit these shelves.
Thoughts tawdry and towering are here on equal
base for us to judge. These books provide the food
that urges "young men in libraries" to think thoughts
yet more blundering in their quest for arcana of
creation. Purpose, hope., guidance., and truth nestle
in the chimera of a library. "Books have led some
to learning and others to madness." PETRARCH
There's more to it then stamping out books.
"Sorry, we don't buy old books."

Got an ache? Need an aspirin? Then the col-
lege health center is the place for you. Their able
staff will cure your every ill. Our amiable friend.,
Fergie., has served us well and, though she is no
longer the mainstay of the infirmary, she'll always
be remembered. She could give our morale that nec-
essary boost and brighten our day with her friendly
smile. Dr. Phelan, too, has helped us all. Always on
call., he saw us through our pre-freshman physicals
and our college colds. Hats oil' to two unsung per-
sonalities who deserve a lot of credit.

Each class is unique in its own way in that it develops a personality and has traits
applicable to any individual. Each class is similar in that they have class elections, a class
dance, a class assembly, and other activities. These likenesses can be attributed to all classes
everywhere but the significant aspect of classes are the individuals which compose them.
In each of the classes, you find personalities of leaders, scholars, and just good
workers. It is here that you find the types which lead and guide other students, the ones who
are the so-called 'Lbig wheels of the college." The leaders compose only a small amount of the
whole class: the larger amount consisting of high spirited students who strive to put their
class on top, since each class knows that its class is the best.

Colly, this is fun!
In September, 400 new faces were added to our midst.
These 400 soon became known as the Freshman Class. They
started the hall rolling with the election of their leaders. They
were willing scapegoats on Spook Day and walked off with the
prize Homecoming float. a'Neptune's Daughter" came along in
March and boasted a fabulous chorus, with fabulous costumes.
This was the first chance for us to see the Freshman Class in
action and they really outdid themselves. ujungle Madness," in
April, saw thatched huts skirting the gym floor. The dance was
a big success.
Good luck to the Class of '59.

The class of '58 came back in full force this year bearing the title of
Sophornores. 4'Snow Wl1ite" was the theme for their Homecoming float. An
open story book with a beautiful Snow lvhite and seven droll dwarfs set the
scene. New York and bright lights were featured in their annual assembly,
"Lullaby of Broadway." Snappy dance steps and clever harmonizing made the
show a big hit. March winds blew in the Roman garb and slender white
columns for the spring dance, Hldes of March." Halfway through their
college career, the Sophomores are still 'going strongf

Nearing the end of their college career, the Juniors set out to make this
year a big one. Their officers, elected last spring, were ready to 'go places,'
feeling the class was behind them all the way. Depicting a scene from the
infamous "Blackboard Jungle," their Homecoming float stole the show. Accord-
ing to tradition, the Juniors sponsored the annual Christmas dance. This year,
icicles and snowmen set the temperature of the pre-holiday celebration, "Fro-
zen Fantasyf' Their class assembly was ushered in by dazzling jewels and
costumes of brilliant hues. "Arabian Daze" was a big success and a credit to
all who participated.
Good luck to the Class of '57.

The organizational huhhuh at Towson does more than just keep a lot of people
husy. The thirty-two groups on eampus yield to the college the leaders. the workers, and the
ideas that make the wheels of purposeful activity go round. But of eourse. hasie to any organ-
ization is the satisfaction of individual interests. The organizations exist to serve these interests
and give to the memhers a sense of fulfillment and helonging that ean rarely he at-hieverl in
isolation from others.
Each year. we see new organizations arise-some to stand the test of time. some to
he eventually ahsorhefl. This year. we eelehrate the formal entry of the 4-II and photography
cluh into the extra-eurricular eirele. lf we'eould take preview of what Towson woulal he like
twenty-five or fifty years from now organization-wise, the pieture might he somewhat rlifler-
ent than it is now, hut the imprint of eaeh group, past and present. would he imlelihly markefl

What makes the student government? Weekly,
the executive committee is observed huddled in secretive
meetings of great importance. They are planning minor
revolutions, sensational improvements, and subtle meth- i , ,. '
ods to tear down traditions. They plead with advisorsg " M 11
they are part of the machine. Momentous decisions are l l
made: "Who is to play at the dance?" . . . "What shall I. W
we call this campaign?" . . . "How can we get around wie' x
professors?" . . . The leaders accomplish heroic feats . .,,-.
that make school life interesting and acceptable. Sup-
ported by the student body, they run extra-curricular
events in a smooth, efficient manner. In later years, their
accomplishments will still be remembered by grateful x
classmates. But a new breed of leaders will arise with
fabulous new ideas, asking sensational new questions:

As we recall this year's feature events, we experience the full gamut of emotions.
From registration, to Christmas, the Sweetheart Dance, May Day-each event has special sig-
nificance to different individuals. The greatest pleasure in looking hack over the year, results
when we live through our experiences in retrospect, recapturing the important moments
Although any events are held from year to year there is never an exact duplication
of what has gone before. Each year brings the spice of novelty as well as the dignity of tra-
dition. The year 1955- 56 was no exception. Probably one innovation that will be remembered
was the magnificent scale of the Sweetheart Dance. However, each event speaks for itself as we
peruse the next pages.

Motivation! Integration! Experience! Who
says these are worn out educational terms? The
Freshman Advisory Council planned and executed
an effective and enjoyable Freshman Week for the
448 incoming students who enrolled this year at Tow-
son. Motivation was relatively easy. The FAC found
itself the welcoming committee to a very warm and
enthusiastic group of freshmen. ln fact, so enthusi-
astic were they, some say that they motivated the
upper classmen! Nor was integration a problem, for
the freshmen, after a very short while on campus,
became an integral and contributing part of college
life. During Freshman Week, such activities as the
barn dance, pajama party, smoker, swimming party,
and many others constituted a packed week to which
the freshmen responded with great spontaneity, mak-
ing the college aware that the Class of 1959 had

Just a young girl
It's not the type of thing which one eagerly
awaits every semester, but this year, neither was it
quite the necessary evil, that in the past it has been
considered. We're talking about REGISTRATION-
of course. In September 1,164 students registered at
the college. Registrar Flossie Jones seems to have
been able to pinpoint and improve upon some of
those aspects of registration which were sorely want-
ing of greater efficiency. Although the initial and
necessary procedure of registration is still no joyous
task, the method used this year did seem to result in
less hair pulling, fewer schedule entanglements, and,
in general, a happier and healthier college citizenry.

When the class of 1956 entered Towson as
freshmen, the celebration of homecoming was initi-
ated. From the very first Homecoming, for four years,
young ladies from the class of 1956 were selected to
he queens. The class is very proud of having held this
honor. Qur first Homecoming Queen was Miss Pegge
Whiteleatller Garriques in 1952, in 1953 Miss Nancy

selected, and in 1955 Miss Margie Cole won the honor.

Rudiments of a first Homecoming celebration
were in the air as the Class of 1956 first appeared at
Towson in September, 1952. Within several months,
the college was ushering in this innovation which
since has become a traditional part of Towson. The
Class of 1956 feels a special attachment and pride in
these first four of Towson's Homecomings since girls
from the class have carried with a high head the
crown of the Homecoming Queen for four consecu-
tive years. This year, Miss Margie Cole reigned over
the most successful of the Homecoming celebrations
so far. A parade, originally decorated dorms, a win-
ning soccer game, and a dance describe, in a nutshell,
the 1955 activities which alumni and members of the
college enjoyed. uliealms of Gold," the symbol used
hy Keats in reference to great books was the over-all
theme. This year the Alumni Association's first place
class award went to the Class of 1959's Alice in Won-
derland floatg "Dinner at Antoinesf' the theme of the
men's East Dorm took first place honors for the
most original and decorative dorm. The dance, Para-
dise Lost, climaxed what can certainly be chalked up
as another success in the Towsonls annals.

past, Towson brought to the campus the Baltimore
Symphony Orchestra to provide an excellent and en-
joyable selection of "after-dinner music" in the audi-
torium. Needless to say, a large turn-out was expected
and realized. Following the concert a reception was
held in the Student Centre for the Orchestra, mem-

What greater joy is there than in knowing
that because of you, someone's life has been made
brighter and richer? With this attitude students at
Christmastime busy themselves in preparation as
envoys of happiness. The Yuletide activities are many
fold, consisting of the assembly, dance, and the much
anticipated formal Christmas dinner and carolling.
But probably the best loved and most heartwarming
Christmas event is the traditional orphans' party,
wherein lies the epitome of the Christmas spirit-

A successful season can be chalked up to the
Glen Players. With the new faculty director, William
Kramer, the Glen Players opened the year with an
exceptionally enjoyable presentation of Good-Bye

as Congresswoman Agatha Reed. In supporting roles
were Jim Glass, Nan Stroterhoff and ,lack Lynch.
Beyond the Horizon by Eugene 0'Neill saw
,lay Butler, Ginger Beaman, Nan Strerhofl' and Jim
Glass in the spotlight.
Another Part of the Forest was received by
an enthusiastic, appreciative, intrigued audience. The
excellent performances of Dennis Fry, Carolyn Lyle,
Emmy Lee Butler, Craig Gerhardt and ,lim Glass
resulted in a successful three night showing.
George Washington Slept Here found new
stars on the Glen Players stage: Carolyn Thomas,

A good selection of material, student dramatic
ability plus excellent directing and technical work,
such as properties, scenery, lighting and publicity
has helped to establish the reputation and prestige
of our campus drama group.

If you have ever noticed certain of the resi-
dent men with circles under their eyes and a rather
seedy out-look on life, it is only because they have
probably been enjoying to the fullest the life in the
dormitories. It is not that no one goes to sleep before
2 a.m., and that the noise is unbearable, but it is
Somehow most of the gentlemen in residence
seem to endure their dormitory life, and they even

of them, and a strong constitution, the boys manage.

Living in a dormitory could be labeled any-

governed by a representative group of ten girls with
the guidance of the Resident direc-tors the residence
halls provide ample opportunity for all of their
students to satisfy their needs. The sorial Committee

Bill Binder slammed
home an unassisted
shot in the second pe-
riod to give the Colden
Knight soccer team a
1-0 triumph over the
University of Virginia
in the final game of the
1955 soccer season for the Knights. The victory gave
the Knights a 7-1-2 overall figure. The locals had

The Knights appeared somewhat sluggish at
times during the contest and it could not be con-
sidered one of their better games, although the Cava-
liers must certainly be classed as a major opponent.
It was the second successive victory for Towson over
the Virginians since the Knights had journeyed to
Charlottesville last season and knocked the Cavaliers
from the unbeaten ranks with a 3-2 decision.
Reece Livingston, Towson's all-conference
goalie, was outstanding from his position in front of
the net. Reece had 13 saves in all as he protected
the Knights' slim one point margin. This marked 5
one of the few games that Buck Harmon has failed X
to reach the scoring column. 'iv , I
With their season over, the Knights can now H. ' G 'M-V ,
just sit back and watch the results of games involv- " 2 f latin!
ing Baltimore U. and Western Maryland. One of ' s
these three will be conference champion, depending
on the outcomes of the final games.

R an end to a long famine
1 ' I1 37' in Towson athletics. We
X are referring to a short-
' ' ,, age of undisputed cham-
,EE 1 pionships, which was
ended when Coach von
finished not only their first undefeated season, but
that of the coach as well. Finishing with a 7-0 over
all dual meet record, highlighted hy a 16-14 team
victory over Baltimore U., the Knights amassed 189
points to their opponent's 44.
Among the highlights of the season were fresh-
man star Don Sudbrinkls pin of Fred Frommelt, last
year's 147-lb. champ, in the dual meet, and crowd-
pleasing Dick C1em"s win over Bernie Gordon in the
Tournament finals, the latter's first defeat in three
years of Mason-Dixon competition. Then too, Bill
Owings in winning the 137-lb. championship, was
undefeated in this class.
Special mention must be made of the team's
three seniors, Don Huges, Denny Psoras, and Walt
Welmer. Witll impressive records for four years of
action, all have been very important in the com-
mendable showing and continued progress of the

continued on the winning road by romping over Mt. St. Marys
Q20-351. The thinclads then were defeated by Catholic Uni-
versity f39-19l. However, Dr. Minnegan's fieet-footed charges
returned to the winning path in their last two meets by thwart-
ing the efforts of American University f2l-375 and Loyola
College f25-301. The squad placed 7th in the Mason-Dixon
Championships. The team started the 1955 season with only two
returning lettermen, co-captains Bernie Hartman and Steve
Rohr. The season's success depended on the newcomers led by
Joe Tischer, Bob Spencer, and Gene Cassiday. Their rapid de-
velopment assured a winning season for the school.

team this year compiled
an overall record of 2
wins and 3 losses. The
team defeated Mount St.
Mary's and Salisbury
S.T.C.g lost to Washing-
ton College, American U., Randolph Macon College,
and F rostburg S.T.C. Injuries and sickness both hin-
dered the cindermen throughout the year. The big-
gest loss was that of leading scorer Don Holler early
in the season due to a broken foot. Despite these
gloomy aspects, however, school records were broken
by Bob Colburn, Don Hofler, and J im Davidson. The
latter, while only a freshman, broke the school broad-
jump record in the annual Mason-Dixon Champion-
ships, and placed third in the event to be the only
Towsonian to win a medal in this year's tournament.
The outlook for next year is good as the knights lose
only a few men through graduation.

Three years have past: you are at last a senior. You recall your aspirations when
you were a freshman and your idolization of upperclassmen and their impression on you. The
senior title is now conferred on you. Your senior year differs from the other three mainly in
the activities that occur, namely, graduation. Month hy month the time slips away and you have
suddenly approached .lune Week. Classes have ended and time is spent in a wild frenzy of try-
ing to enjoy the most of the remaining days, the hours, the minutes, existing in your college
The presidentis dinner, stiff and formal, passes hy: the wonderful heach party, the
senior prom, and then graduation, the climax of college life, all arrive and depart as quickly as
they come. Your collegiate history has terminated, and you now realize that those four hectic
years were the best you have ever experienced.

ay ay 1956 was ushered in by warm winds and a bright sunny
day. The Senior Class was proud of the girls that composed the may
court and even more proud of Miss Nancy Green., May Queen, and Miss
Margie Sadler, Maid of Honor. The Queen sparkled as she presided over
the day's activities which included the da '
nclng around the may pole and
r musical numbers and dances sponsored by the orchestra, glee club.,
and physical education department. This year as usual, the various
organizations on campus maintained concession booths where such
things as cokes, cakes, candies, and snowballs were sold. The day's fes-
tivities was clima d '
xe by the annual M
ay Day dance, '
1 IOH, held at the college.

What a life! Breakfast is served in bed to the senior
ladiesg the senior men are served in the North Hall. This
was Senior Day, a day set aside to pay tribute to the
"procession marchers." The Junior Class members served
breakfast to the seniors, while the freshmen served
dinner. The night's festivities ended with entertainment
in the student centre provided by'the Sophomore Class.
It was at this time that such prophesies as the following
were read: "Skip Wayson-Skip was last seen going on
a picnic because someone told him he looked liked
William Holden." "Alice Smith-Roses are red, Alice
knows well but 22 dozens surely do smell." A trip to
Towson ensued the occasion.

attire, enjoyed a day's outing at
Crystal Beach in celebration of
their June Week activities. lt
was a fun-packed day crammed
full of all kinds of crazyness.
The seniors stuffed themselves
with steamed crabs, enjoyed the
warm water, lulled around on
the beach, and just chattered

The most anticipated event of the entire four years, the senior prom, provided
everyone with a successful evening. The seniors dressed in formal attire danced
to the music of Frank Welscli in the main ballroom of the Southern Hotel. The
seniors sparkled with anxiety and happiness but behind those smiles and twin-
kling eyes, there was a feeling of sadness since this was really their last formal
occasion together. The class as a whole will long feel the rhythm of the music
and will retain fond memories shared as they danced the night away.

We of the Tower Echoes of 1956 believe
that we have created a yearbook both unique
and 'different from any annual thus published
for Towson. lt was our desire to capture the
atmosphere and spirit of our college in an orig-
inal mannerg we feel as though we have done
this and created "many firstsf, This yearbook
was made possible through the untiring effort
and dependability shown by the various editors
and to the following people who contributed:
Stella Seltza, Steve Rohr., Don Keyser, Anna
Zambounis, Babs Bartley, Nancy Peterson, and
Josie Nead. To next year's staff headed by ,lane
Lilley, we wish the best of luck and hope that
all of the books in the future will strive for
unique and originality that will distinguish each
from all others.
