A Hn Mn ZGfM6 The Union College Freshman Cam-p is one of the main features of the 'incoming Fresh- man's Orientation. From the Hrst get together in the pile of jumbled camp equipment at the Old Chapel meeting place the initiation into college life begins. 1 B... ,. The bugler's popularity rises and falls with each call. Entertainment runs rampant at the Freshman Camp. Pave Ten afzedfaman ecamp The Freshman Camp on Lake George is reached about noon and after getting some- what organized in your assigned tent you find an opportunity to look over the beautiful location. You find out that the camp is run on a non-profit 'basis Kas one can almost gather by the size of the mealsj and also that each year's leader is one of the upper class- men, who this past year was Al Lewis. The camp life here Hlls every minute, from the early morning dip twhich all like to say they takej to the bull sessions late into the night. Fresh air, exercise and plenty of sleep tif you have a private tentj-this sounds much like a training camp. It is in many respects just such a camp. Here recreation and a college introduction mingle, for during the day there are games and recreation rang- ing from soft 'ball and swimming to lacrosse and football, while at night everyone gathers before the huge fireplace to hear 'brief lec- tures by various representatives of depart- ments of instruction. Late night snacks and community sings certainly have the desired effect in that everyone is drawn closer into the personal ties that the college itself em- phasizes. When the last night rolls around and the skits are given by each tent there are many heavy hearts and a hope that some day they may pay the camp another visit. Swimming in Lake George appeals to the most unromantic of souls. Not long after our arrival back on the campus, we begin to see the familiar faces of people connected with the college for a long time. The faculty changes from year to year, the coaching staff rarely stays the same for over tive years, even high administrative posi- tions see new faces at fairly frequent intervals. We need, then, some small group of people that we can remember as part of Union throughout our four years here and that we can fondly hope to see a part of Union when we may visit the campus again. These are the people we take little note of when we are here, but they are the same people whom we will remember long after we have forgotten countless other 'college acquaintances. Miss Thompson of the Library, Miss Travis and Mrs. Rapclje of the Ad Building, Ed Fitz and Fred Parks of the Gym,-we wonit forget these people because of their love for Union and their services to their school. we dee ' raced ,if Ed Fitz . . .

Um .Siucfenl 7am- a camfmllfifee appaapaiala if One of the smallest, yet one of the most important of cam-pus organizations is the 'Stu- dent Tax Committee. This group, established in 19.34, has complete control over the dis- posal of funds for student activities. The committee has only four members: two seniors, a junior and the President of the Student Council, ex oficio. The Student Tax Committee is a permanent subc-ommittee of the Student Council. The members during the spring term were James Hogeboom, '49, Chairman, Alfred Lewis, '48, Secretary, Donald Blake, '48, and Albert Hill, '48, Presi- dent of the Student Council. Prof. Wilford Ketz is adviser of the committee, and has no vote. The Trustees of the college have fixed S16 a year as the maximum student tax that may be charged. This gives about 824,000 in annual revenue. In addition to this sum money is available from sale of the Gridiron, proceeds of dances, and a few other sources. Revenue from advertising in the various pub- lications is usually set aside for the use of the activity from which it is derived. Money for each school year is apportioned Page Fourteen at budget hearings held about April of the preceding school year. A representative of each activity approved Iby the Student Coun- cil comes to the hearing with a budget for his activity. The budgets are examined by the committee, and, on the basis of the hearings, and with the expected revenue for the coming year in mind, the group distributes the funds to the various activities. The money is chiefly put in two categories: operating ac- counts, for the normal working of the organi- zation, and reserve accounts, set aside for specific purposes. A 'few men are given an opportunity to be present at the hearings by the committee. On the basis of their participation at the hearings recommendations are made to the President of the Student Council, who appoints the new members of the committee. The junior mem- ber automatically becomes ehairman in his senior year. During the past school year the committee disposed of approximately fB24,000, of which 312,500 went to publications, 356,600 to other activities, and the remainder to reserve ae- counts and miscellaneous items. In view of the absence of an official organi- zation to tend to the problems of foreign stu- dents, the Cosmopolitan Club was reorganized at Union through the efforts of a few of the foreign students, aided and advised by Chap- lain C. Victor Brown. The foreign students felt very acutely the need for an organization that would assist them in adjusting themselves to the life at college, and in Hnding their place among the student body on campus. Most of the Foreign Students coming to the States for the first time, find themselves faced with problems of a, more or less similar nature, in getting ae- elimated to the new surroundings, and in get- ting adjusted to a way of life which might be totally different from their own. Besides, foreign students at Union being so few and far between, a new student has a very slender ehance of running aeross some one who shares his dilemma, an-d is apt to feel a. bit lost. The Cosmopolitan Club endeavors to bring the foreign students more closely together, so that they may get to know one another better, and provides ample scope for an interesting exchange of ideas between the students of various nations. The Club meets every Friday and, thanks to the eonseientious efforts of its officers, al- ways Ends a program of interest in the form of lectures, talks, discussions and films on sub- jects of international interest, to which all the faculty and students of the College are wel- come. The activities of the elub have so far been restricted to the Campus only on ae- eount of the very slender Hnanees at the dis- posal of the elub. However, the elub has ex- tensive plans for the future, and is looking forward to some assistance in seeing them carried out. Among some of the things that the club has in view are: trips for its mem- bers to places of interest, visits to similar or- ganizations at other schools, lectures and talks by people of note, and soeials where the members Could get together and meet various groups, thereby getting a better insight to the American way of thinking. The keen and sincere interest shown by the members in the activities of the club is truly gratifying, and we are confident that before long the Cosmopolitan club will rank as one of the foremost organizations on the Union College Campus.

The first appearance of the squad last Fall was at the memorable Pep Rally, held around the usual huge bonfire on Council field. Fol- lowing that, the cheerleaders led yells at almost all the football games and pep rallies during A loud and more mobile group leads the parading student body the Season: which was highightcda perhaps: down Nott Terrace.

Continuing on through the Winter months, the team was on hand at the basketball games to lead the fans in a variety of cheers and general encouragement for the Dutchmen on the court. Although losing its two head cheerleaders, James Baar and James Landry, through graduation, the squad has a selection of new yells 'prepared for the ,48 season and is antici- pating a redoubled spirit from the student fbody.

Seaman- 400114511 The prediction Mel Hein made in 1946 that the 1947 Union College gridiron squad would not do any worse than it did in 1946 was borne out as the 194-7 Dutchmen eleven hung up an identical record of three wins and Hve losses. Bolstered by the addition of a new coach, John McLaughry, and the return of 11 lettermen, the Garnet confidently faced its 194-7 schedule, only to find that erratic play and the breaks of the game foiled its efflorts for a winning season. Although 11 lettermen were on hand for pre-season drills, most of the candidates for positions lacked extensive experience in col- Eighteen lege football. This prompted Coach Mc- Laughzy to state early in the season that "a T--formation does not seem feasible for Union at the present time.'l McLaughry therefore built his attack upon the tried and true single- wing principles. Administrative cooperation with members of the team -by adjustment of class schedules and the provision of room and board during pre-season workouts provided a lift in team morale. In the past, schedule conflicts have often hampered practice by making it impos- sible for a complete team to 'be on hand for daily drills. WVith things seemingly favoring them, the Top: Hal Ensticc, one of the foremost figures in Union gridiron history. Middle: Coach MeLaughry, a new and talented coach. Bottom: Tony Coppola, fast-developing pass-receiver and scorer. Napcar, Shaefler and Crone approach tackled foe. Dutchmen faced a strong St. Lawrence aggre- gation in the season's opener with high hopes of victory. When the smoke had cleared from the 'battlefield a series of bad breaks and boners on Union's part had made it the victim of a 27-6 drubbing. The call back of Charlie Snow's 70-yard touchdown run in the initial quarter was the straw which broke the camel's back, for after that point'it was a demoralized Garnet squad which did battle with the Larries. Union played haphazardly until the closing moments of the game when it finally started rolling. Eight passes were completed in the space of a few minutes as 'Captain Hal Enstice unlimbered his pitching arm. Roy Westland snared one Enstice pass and galloped into pay dirt to prevent the Dutchrnen from being whitewashed, but the Garnet score came too late to prevent defeat. Union played gamely in its second contest of the year and its 42nd meeting with the Uni- versity of 'Rochester eleven, but was unable to upset the Yellowjackets, 14- point favorites, as the visitors won 18-13. The victory gave Rochester a record of 21 wins, 18 defeats and three ties in the series. The Yellowjackets made full use of a sub- stantially heavier line and a confusing HT" formation in bettering the Garnet. The The Band forms a Block "U" in halftime maneuvers Page Nineteen Dutchmen opened the scoring in the initial minutes of the tussle as a 40-yard Enstice- Tony Coppola pass set the ball on the visitors' eight yard stripe. Enstice carried the 'ball off tackle for a touchdown and Al Wade kicked the extra point to put Union ahead 7-0. Rochester powered through the Garnet de- fense in the next three quarters to gain an 18-7 advantage as the final quarter got under- way. The home forces rallied to the cause and gamely fought an uphill battle as Chuck Duggan stopped a Yellowjacket threat with a pass interception on his own five yard line. Duggan's interception placed the pigskin on the Rochester 47 and in two plays Enstiee had smashed his way through to a second touchdown. The kick for the extra point went wide and the contest ended as Union was vainly striving to tally the winning points. The Dutchmen came through with one of the biggest upsets in small college football as they tangled with heavily favored Vermont and emerged with a 20-7 triumph, their first under McLaughry's tutelage. The echoes of the opening whistle had barely died away from Alexander Field when Enstice broke through the Vermont line and raced 70-yards to the payoff stripe. Al Wade converted to give the Garnet a lead it never relinquished. Coppola snared a pass from Ken Whalen for a score in the third period and a few minutes later Enstice pitched to Jack Brisson for the Hnal tally. Wade again made the extra point good. Vermont blasted through for its lone touch- down late in the Final stanza after Union had already sewed up the game. In the 45th 'battle of the 61 year old rivalry with R.P.I. the Garnet took it on the chin for the third time in the season as the underdog Engineers copped a 33-24 win. Union has won 32, lost nine, and tied four of the 45 matches. Union looked like the victor in the opening minutes of the tilt as Whalen passed to Enstice to set the ball on the Cherry and White's five yard stripe. I-Ial Lundstrum blasted through center to score. However, the rough-riding Engineers sidelined Enstice with an injury 'before the game was five minutes old and the Dutchm-en greatly felt the loss of their sparkplug. Dave Strauss took over Ensticels passing duties and did excep- tionally well in that department but the Union eleven was somewhat lost without the great defensive playing of Enstiee. Coppola went around end in the second quarter to olllset a brace of R.P.I. touchdowns, but the halftime score favored the Engineers l3-12. Strauss pitched a 42-yard pass to Wade for a marker in the third, hut an R.P.I. spurt of three touchdowns gave them an imposing 33-18 margin as the tussle entered its final The football team stands in the dark for a picture after completing a fairly successful season under new coach McLaughry. Page Twenty phases. Strauss passed to Busino in the final frame to bring the score to 33-'2L1'. Playing listlessly and lacking any of the power or ability it had displayed in the Rochester, Vermont and R.P.I. contests, the Garnet eleven dropped a lifeless 6-0 match to the Hobart gridders. Hobart scored in the second quarter and the impotent Dutchmen never seemed to threaten this lead in one of the poorest exhibitions of football ever writ- nessed on Alexander Field. Coach Mclsaughry decided that something had to 'be done and overnight he developed a "T" formation and a tricky 8-2-l defense to employ against Williams. The offensive and defensive formations worked like charms and the Dutchrnen rnacle history as they defeated the Eplnnen for the second season in a row, the hrst time that had been done in the 39 game series. The most remarkable part of it was that the triumphs had been by identical scores, 14--0. George Best, substitute back, shown for Union as he took the ball on the sixth play of the game and raced 40 yards through the bewildered Purple and Black for a score. Best tallied again in the second period as he went 10 yards through center for a touchdown. Wade converted both times. Williams buckcd against a stubborn line of Dutchmen and never got beyond the Union 4-0 yard stripe despite its 'best efhorts. A cold rain and high winds hampered the Garnet aerial attack as it engaged Middlebury and lost to the Panthers 26-12. The Blue and White opened the scoring in the second quar- ter only to have Enstice knot the count at 6-all as he raced to the goal line a minute later. Middlebury scored late in the second stanza to gain a I2-6 halftime advantage. Whalen heavecl a flat pass to Lundstrum on the Middlebury 28 yard marker and the latter seampercd into pay dirt to again tie things up. The Panthers burst forth in the third and fourth periods with scores which the spluttering Garnet ma.cl'1ine could not match. The Dutchmcn ended their season on a triumphant note as they bested Hamilton 18-0 in the 52nd contest of the 60 year old friendly rivalry. The victory put Union ahead in the series with 21 wins, 20 defeats and 11 ties. Enstice, in his last appearance for Union, led the rushing attack. The Garnet scored early in the tilt as Coppola swept the end on a reverse. Strauss passed to Wade for a second counter before the game was a quarter Top: Wade off on one of his long runs Bottom: Enstice stops opponent's attack old. Wade slashed off left tackle in the second period and dashed 52 yards for Union's final score. All three kicks for' the conversions were wide. Partially lblocked punts on several oc- casions placed the Continentals in threaten- ing positions, but the Dutchmen held them from scoring. Three stalwarts of the team, Enstice, Torn Grone and Pete Spezzano, wound up their gridiron careers for Union in the Hamilton tilt. Loss of Enstice, -backfreld ace for three seasons, will be deeply felt if Coach Mc- Laughry is unable to find a capable substitute. 1948 prospects are 'brightened however by the fact that the bulk of the squad will return intact and that several of the 1947 Freshman team's stars will be reporting for varsity com- petition. Page Twenty-one The Gross-Country squad promises to be one of the best in Union history next year. rqdllfxeeaaw ' - Under the capable tutelage of Coach Bill Ketz, a veteran cross country squad com- pleted its 1947 season with a record of three wins and two losses. In addition, valuable experience was gained when the squad com- peted in the IC4A meet held on the large Van Cortland Park course in the Bronx, New York. After the initial opener against the Uni- versity of Vermont was cancelled, the Garnet harriers opened the season on October 18 against R.P.l. With Bob Garlock of Union leading the procession by capturing individual honors, the Dutchmen captured this meet 33-24. The following week, Union walked over the visiting Brooklyn Poly squad with a perfect 15-40 win, the third such win in as many Page Twenty-two years. Six of the seven Garnet runners crossed the finish line abreast to clinch the race. On November lst, the Garnet hill-and- dalers journeyed to XlV1lllZ1IT1StOWl1, where they suffered their First defeat of the season at the hands of the strong Ephmen of Williams Gol- lege. The Purple, boasting the strongest cross country team in its history, edged a 23-32 victory over the locals by capturing the first four slots in the race. Handicapped by the sickness of Captain Newt Culver, the Garnet suffered another setback the following week when the harriers faced the Middlebury harriers. Inclement weather played havoc with the runners, and the meet ended with a 27-28 win for the Ver- monters. Aided by the return of Newt Culver, who was out for the Middlebury meet, the Ketz- men put on their best performance of the year November 15th when they topped the visiting hflohawk College squad with an impressive 39-16 win. The Mohawk runners, who had had little previous ekperience this year, proved no mateli for the Dutehnien. On November 17th, the team competed in the 1C44A meet, placing 20th in the Closely contested race in which 36 colleges were rep- resented. Ray Bcllanger, '49, has been named captain- eleet for the l9Al'8 season, which promises to be one of the most successful in Union's his- tory. Z! Coach Bill Ketz has much to smile about as he contemplates his potentially great cross-country squad. Agqinst Brooklyn Poly, six Union men finish abreast to win easily. Page Twenty-three '7fze aefuiai Who is Zip Glotz? A poll was conducted on cam-pus on Novemlber 13th and Zip Glotz was known by only three people, a G.E. vice- president speaking 'in chapel, a ware salesman peddling his wares, and an old woman of ninety, whose mind was crammed with many facts, flashlight in hand picking worms for bait. On November 17th another poll was taken and the name Zip Glotz was still shrouded in ignorance. In the interim Zip Glotz had visited the campus unnoticed, un- acclairned and unheraldecl. 'What does the Page Twenty-four name Zip Glotz mean to you individually? As the third trombonist in 'Sam Donaliuds musical organization, Zip Glotz stands as a symbol in the hearts and minds of many. In his own little way, he contributed generously to the Interfraternity Council's Gridiron Ball. Zip Glotz stands as a symbol of the music, the laughter, the gayety, and the tenderness, the sweet memories of that week-end.

Made up of representatives from the Mountebanks, Idol, Concordiensis, GARNET, International Re- lations Club, Philomathean Society, Christian Association, Cuting Club, Radio Society, Glee Club, Band, and Student Tax Committee, the group functions under the guidance ol' Advisor Wilfred H. Ketz. This year, the Board of Managers met on alternate Tuesdays, rotating with the Student Council, and took full advantage of its con- stitution-given right of making recommenda- tions to the latter governmental body. In turn, when the Student Council was faced with such menial tasks as organizing activi- ties for Alumni Homecoming Weekend, it recommended that the Board of Managers assume the responsibility. In this particular situation, all of the major activities on campus arranged open houses at their offices but were greeted by an alumni-less campus. The Glee Club arranged a concert for the weekend, which they sang even though. the singing group outnumbered the audience of stray stu- dents. In the future, however, it is felt that any alumni that may return will be even more appreciated and will 'be treated to a more spectacular show. Jack Tway served as President during the past year, assisted by Roger Williams as Secre- tary. Among the more active members was Bernard McGovern, who organized and for the main part carried out the new Freshman Orientation program. It is in this orientation work that the Board of Nlanagers demonstrates its usefulness. As- signing an upper-class advisor to each enter- ing freshman in the summer, the Boardis com- mittee continues its work through most of the fall as it keeps the advisors active in their campus aid. In this activity, the Board of Managers performs an essential work at Union. Page Twenty-five l Murray, Saxe, and Orick at work in the Concardiensis oflice. The Concordiensis, founded in 1877, is second in age among Union's publications only to the GARNET. At first it was primarily a literary publication, but it gradually evolved into a newspaper. Prior to the war the Con- cordiensis was issued on a semi-weekly basis, but during the war the staff was substantially reduced, and regular publication schedules were not maintained. Now that the paper is back on a regular footing, the semi-weekly plan could be reinstituted, but at the moment the costs are prohibitive, and will probably be so in the near future. Wm Gan 'endid 571:-:aka During the past year the Concordiensis has had its office redeeorated, has obtained several pieces of new equipment, and has improved the eHiciency of production. Au advisory board was set up to make recommendations for improved operating procedures, and to evolve a system under which students could start in their freshman year, and by taking various positions, gain the experience needed so that in their upperclass years they could take positions on the managing board. This year's managing board was headed by Lot H. Cooke, Jr., '48, managing editor, Craig Mitchell, '48, and business manager, Merton Sarnoff, '49. The other members of the board are Duncan Lasher, '49, sports editor, Orazio Ottaviano, '48, news editor replacing Robert Bartlett, '48, and Leslie deGroot, '48, circula- tion manager. Editorial policy of the Concordientis con- cerned 'itself mainly with campus issues. One of the most frequently recurring of these is the general apathy of the student body toward extra-curricular activities and athletic events. The Concordiensis has tried often in its edi- torials to point out that more student partici- pation in activities, and more interest in campus issues will work to everyone's advan- tage. Lasher, Sarnolf, Ottaviano, Cooke, DeGroot, and Mitchell watch the Concordiensis grow in campus controversies. Page Twenty-six 14 new ufaafia fd-fb llfze Never before have the students at Union College been offered such complete radio coverage as is now supplied by the Union College Radio Society. Station WWRUC this year operated eight hours a day from the new studios in the south en-d of VVashburn Hall. lt was early 'in 1947 that the work was begun on these studiosg but it was months earlier that jim Oglesby, president of the Society, assisted by Paul Goetze, vice-president, George Wheeler, treasurer, and Bob Hartwell, station manager of WRUC, had first started planning them. By june, the construction was complete and the Station had at its dis- posal one large sound-proofed studio and its control room, one master control room, one small announce studio for record shows, and an ofhce. Meanwhile some of the electrical equipment had arrived and more had 'been built 'by the members of the staff. aded by Oglesby, the Radio Society has become one of the top college radio stations in the country. In the fall of 1947, Station WRUC went on the air from the new studios even though the installation was not complete. After a complete reorganization of the staff, the Station is now operating elliciently with facili- ties which are 'better than those of the average commercial broadcast station. All types of programs are offered, and all are tailored to suit the students.

The Outing Club is probably the largest and yet the least known activity on campus. The only requirement for membership is participation in its many activities. During the past year nearly 130 men, about one tenth of the college population, were present at one or more of its functions. It was founded 'in 1933 and has been continuously active since that date. The Outing Club is run on a rather informal basis. Suggestions made by members of the student body are considered by the executive council of the organization, which does the actual work of running the club. At present the executive council is composed of Gene Krauter, Presidentg Preh- mus, Secretary, Carl Luther, Marynowski, and Green. Fred Wyatt, one of the charter members, is now faculty director of the or- ganization. During the year some activity has been held nearly every weekend, the more popular of which are joint outings with nearby womens Page Thirtj'-two colleges. An indication of the spirit of the group can be seen in the fact that up to four trips have been planned for a single weekend. Hiking, canoeing, and square dancing are a few of the sports sponsored by the club. Through a recent appropriation from the stu- dent activities fund some rock climbing equip- ment has been purchased enabling the members to explore the caves of the nearby Helderbergs. Skiing is of course the most popular ac- tivity. The club has attempted to encourage skiing by providing special weekends for in- struction of beginners. Last year the college ski team was sponsored by the organization when the sport was reactivated on the campus. Up to 1911-2 the club owned a cabin at North Creek, but it was destroyed by fire that year. At present a cabin is rented during the winter a few miles from the Gore Mt. ski facilities. It has been in use nearly every weekend and during school vacations. Various other activities have been carried on in a more ofhcial capacity. Delegates at- tended the Collegiate Outing Club Association outing held at Mt. Marcy. Several members worked improving the ski slope at Wolf Hollow. Members of the club conducted the annual frosh pilgrimage up Buck Mt. at Lake George, through which all but 2 of the 134 starters survived. This year enthusiasm has been very high but lark of transportation curtailed the club's program. The organization hopes that the college may obtain a station wagon next year which would be available for trips sponsored by the group. Its only aim for the future is to provi-de the students with more diversified program for escaping the books. aaeffzeim leach '7eam The 1947-48 Union 'College Ski Team was ably eaptained by Arnie Fretheim, the best skier that Union has sent to the slopes in many a year. Exhibiting flawless form in every jump, the Norwegian transfer student was rated by the experts as one of the top jumpers in the country this year. Fretheim captured the New York State Championship in jump- ing at the St. Lawrence Winter Carnival early in the season when he leaped 137 feet from the 50 meter jump at Canton. The rest of the season was a duplication of this feat, and the climax came when he placed third in the Amateur United States Eastern Ski jumping Championships at Laconia, New Hampshire. 200 contestants competed in this event, and Fretheim's leaps of 145 an-d 159 feet clinched his mark among the top rankers. The Dutchmen competed in three meets this season. The schedule got underway on February 6th when the squad journeyed to St. Lawrence to compete in the New York State Championship runs. Union placed last in the highly contested event. On February 21st, Syracuse University played host to Cornell, R.P.I., Hobart, Penn State, and Union. The Garnet placed third in this event with George Best leading the locals in the slalom and downhill events. The final meet of the year was at North Creek on Feb- ruary 28th, when Union entertained Hobart, Cortland, Lehigh, R.P.I., and Syracuse. The Engineers from Troy clinched first, and the Orange of Syracuse edged out the Garnet skiers by six tenths of a point in the nip and tuck battle. aqackeff 7eam Ga Union produced its first hockey team since 1942 and ended the season with one win and eight losses, the only victory coming against Lehigh early in the year. During the Christ- mas recess, from January 1-3, Hamilton was host to Middlebury, Lehigh, and Union in a round-robin tournament that gave Coach Art Lawrence's comparatively "green" team some valuable experience against tough competi- tion. With each game throughout the season the team displayed marked improvement. Most of the team had had no previous ex- perience, so it is a credit to both coach and players that the pucksters were able to wind up the season with a near win from a veteran Champlain team. The Garnet tangled with Hamilton, Middle- bury, Lehigh, St. Lawrence, and Champlain this year. Defensemen on this Year's squad were Phil Brady, who was acting captain, joe Young, and Doug Everett. Goalies were Hu-bert "Josh" Titus and Martin Silverman. Centers included Rufus Burlingame, captain- elect for 1948-49, and Dick Raymond. The wings were "Win" Paige, 'LOlly" Personeus, joe Behan, Don Boink, Stuart Miller, Bob Wisner, and "Chick" Meehan, player- manager. The entire squad worked hard with un- daunted s-pirit throughout the season. Union had a stellar defenseman fin 'Phil Brady. The teamis main scoring threats were Paige, Bur- lingame, and Young. Only three men, Raymond, Personeus, and Everett, will be lost due to graduation. An early start next season, pending decent weather, will see a much im-proved hockey team on the ice for Union. Cy Hopkins takes a shot at the goal as the hockey team goes down to defeat on the unde- pcndable outdoor ice of Council Field.

Coach Ray Mullaneis 1947-48 swimming team finished the season with a commendable standing of four wins and five losses. The Garnet mermen scored a total of 327 points against 348 points for their opponents. Early season practice was handicapped by the com- plete renovation of Foote .Memorial Pool. However, once started, the squad worked hard and continually improved during the season under the very able tutorage of Coach Mullane. Except for one man, the squad had never been in swimming competition before Coach Mullane's appointment to Union last year. Two long-standing Union College swim- ming records were broken this year. In the McGill meet, Joe Tofel set a. new record in the 200-yard breaststroke, time 21462. The former record was set in 1938 by Arnie Gordon in the time of 2:4-6.8. Captain Jim Courter broke a 1-1'-year old record at Trinity in the 440-yard freestyle, his time was 5:35.9. The best previous time was 5:41.4, made by Bob Oppenheim in 1934. This year the mermen swam against Roches- ter, Hamilton, McGill, Brooklyn Poly, Trinity, Colgate, and R.P.I. Divers on the team were Paul Sharadin, Dick Johnson, and Bob Al- bright. Sharadin registered a number of points for Union by copping several first places. The swimmers on the team include Captain jim Courter, Joe Tofel, Dan Mead, Harold Kuniholm, Mike Samal, Jim Fritts, Craig Mitchell, Roy Clark, Ted Rudzik, john Berbert, Gene Benman, Bud Ottaviano, Clifli Meldrum, Marty O'Meara, and Heinz Staeudle. Manager this year was Alan Tal- mud. The manager-elect is Martin Cohen. Several Freshmen, including Henry Cornell, John Isbister, Bob Diamond, Dave Harper, and Bob Schwartz, worked out with the team this year in practice sessions. They will be valuable material for next year. Coach Mul- lane's predictions for the coming season are optimistic. His hard-working squad is set to put out the best swimming team in Union history. Losses due to graduation are Mit- chell, Ottaviano, and Meldrum, The swimming team fell victim to some raw officiating but still ended the season with a fair record. Page Thirty-four DeBello, Grant, Coppola, and Roberts were four leaders in reorganizing the Block 'UH Society. we Black "Zi" Sacred, szma ,ami After a lapse of ten years the Block HU' Society is again a functioning Organization. In early February of this year the Stu-dent Council approved the proposed constitution. The back bone of the constitution is to pro- mote cooperation between the Administration of Union College and the student body in re- gards to the athletic policy of the college. Membership in the society is open to all Union graduates and undergraduates who have won their varsity letters. This year's oilicers are: Bill Grant, Presi- dentg Tony Coppola, Vice-Presidentg John DeBello, Secretaryg and Dick Roberts, Treas- urer. Mr. Richard Balch ol' the Admissions Oflice, assistant football and lacrosse coach, was chosen as the Faculty Adviser of the Society. Assistance is also obtained from the Advisory Committee which is composed of the coaches of the active sports in college. Under this capable direction the Society has made big steps in its policy. The new program increasing athletic awards and recog- nition o'f athletes was sponsored by the society with the aim of bettering our teams and the name of Union. On April 16 the revived Block "U" Banquet held at the Van Curler Hotel proved to be a great success. The idea behind this banquet is the fostering of student and public interest in college athletics. Every student who has received some kind of athletic award from Union is invited as well as the faculty and alumni of Union College. This year's dinner was held in honor of Ceorge Daley, Union Alumnus, who was one of the most famous sportswriters of the '30's and the father of the Block "Uv Society. The main speaker was Jack Lavalle, Notre Dame and N. Y. Football Giants scout. His enter- taining stories will 'be well remembered. The Block "U" Society has accomplished much in the direction of its policy and we feel that in the future it will continue to add to its reputation. Page Thirty-five Qwmezf awe Ima wzmzmf man Taking over the helm of Union's basketball destiny, Coach Pete Nistad, in his first season as head coach, put his charges through gruelling drills and the 1947-1948 cage team emerged with a record of nine triumphs and seven losses. Despite highly erratic playing, the seasonal tally was one of the best the Dutchmen have mustered in recent court campaigns. Practice sessions began with the 1946-47 varsity squad returning almost intact for another season. Seven lettermen were on hand for early workouts and Nistad had a similar number of experienced players from last yearis varsity and junior varsity teams to add to this nucleus. Prospects for a successful year were bright. An underdog 'Garnet team drew first blood of the year on December 13th when it upset a highly touted Vermont University five by a narrow 40-39 margin. The Dutchmen played heads up ball all the way and left no doubt in the minds of the spectators as to which was the better team. Captain Jim Pemrick continued his high scoring ways of the previous season as he dumped in 18 points to annex top scoring honors. Pemriek tries a tap-in as he outjumps straining R.P.I. men. Union made it two in a row the following week when it bettered Williams by a 4-8-44- margin. The E-phmen gave Union great cause for concern as they constantly threat- ened the slender lead the Garnet had wrested from them early in the tilt. On the whole the game was slow moving and was marred by a large number of fouls. The Dutchmen clinched their victory from the free throw line. A sew-saw tussle with the St. Lawrence cagers on December 20th found the Union hoopsters suffering their first set-'back of the year, by a close 46-49 tally. The Larries commanded an early lead but Union had evened things by halftime and seemed des- tined to continue its winning streak. St. Lawrence regained -its lead in the third stanza and held it until the final whistle despite the Dutchmen's frenzied efllorts to gain control of the situation. Stevens Institute fell victim to the Dutch- men following the Christmas vacation, but only after an overtime period 'found Union with a 57-55 lead. The match was nip-and- tuck an-d the lead changed hands on numerous occasions. The Garnet trailed in the final minutes but evened the score at 55-all as the regulation period ended. A score early in the overtime stanza and dogged attempts to prevent a Stevens tally yielded victory for the Nistadmen. Union, wearied by the Stevens fray, faced Brooklyn Poly the following night and was decisively defeated 40-61. The Poly quintet, one of the best in the Metropolitan area, out- played the Garnet in every department and commanded play throughout the contest. Mid-semester vacation found the Dutch- men on the road facing St. Lawrence and Clarkson on consecutive nights. Loose play- ing and a seeming lack of spirit on the part of the local hoopsters resulted in a repeat tri- umph for the Larries, this time by a sizeable margin, 31-47. Clarkson followed with defeat number four for the Garnet with a 34-4-1 win. Both of these games found the Union court- men reversing their sterling performances against Vermont and Stevens. Following mid-semester recess the Garnet hoopsters tackled a powerful Wesleyan Uni- versity five and ended on the short end of the 68-5O score. The Dutchmen opened the scor- ing and kept the game close in its early stages. Then, the Cardinals got their smoothly func- tioning machine operating at high speed and 'ilu basketball team ran hot and cold, but they were unstoppable when they were on their game. gradually increased their lead. The Red and Black exhibited marvelous Hoor play and steady teamwork. Pemrick -dropped in 22 points but his superb shooting was not enough to stem the tide of victory and prevent Union from suffering its fourth defeat in a row. Flashes of early season brilliance were obvious in the Dutehmen's next cage en- counter, when they trounced Hamilton 72-56 in highly impressive style. The Gontincntals gained the initiative in the first half and the locals seemed destined for their fifth consecu- tive loss. Coach Nistad must have adminis- tered adrenalin with his halftime talk, for it was a completely different team which faced the Buff and Blue in the second half. The Garnet played almost flawlessly in the third quarter as it outscored the visitors by 28-5. Union continued to control play in the final frame and gave every indication that it could hold its own with any quintet on its schedule. A somewhat similar performance was given at Middlebury College the next week as the Dutchmen trounced the Panthers by a wide 72-4-6 margin. Union started slowly but changed a 11-16 first quarter deficit into a 31-24 rest 'period lead. The third and fourth periods found the Garnet hitting the hoop with better than average accuracy and main- taining its mastery of all departments of play. The annual grudge battle against R.P.I. found the Dutchmen upsetting pre-game pre- dictions by squeeking through with a 63-58 triumph. The game was hotly contested from beginning to end, a characteristic of every Union-R.P.I. meeting. Jim Schultz paced the Garnet with the handsome total of 25 counters. The Cherry and White grabbed the initial lead and were in front 11-4 in the first six minutes. The Garnet had narrowed this margin to 17-13 at the end of the first quarter. The home forces gradually shifted into high gear and by intermission had battled to a 30-25 lead. The teams fought on even terms in the second half, although Union at one stage had amassed a 39-29 lead only to find it reduced to 46-43 as the 'third period closed. Possession of the ball changed con- stantly as the game drew to an end and the Engineers threatened th-e Garnet's slim ad- vantage. Schultz broke through for a lay-up shot in the final seconds to clinch the victory. Pete Nistad . . .

The match was marked by nothing more than its dullness and served to prove that basketball does not nec- essarily have to be played race horse style, unless it is desired to do so to prevent the spectators from dozing off. The following contest was anything but dull as the Garnet 'battled the Nfohawk College quintet and won a 67-59 decision. Union's inability to function smoothly in the first half was again apparent as the visitors drove to a 41-34 halftime margin. The third quarter found the Garnet very much in the contest as it narrowed the lead to 44-41 and then knotted the count on a field goal by Schultz and a conversion by c'Whitey" Markes. Despite several outbursts of emotion, the Dutchmen managed to keep their heads clear and went on to tack up their fifth win in a string and their eighth of the season. The team which had started the Union winning streak ended it on February 28 when Hamilton pushed across a 53-52 triumph over the Dutchmen. The game was marked 'by a large number of fouls and a whistle-happy referee. The Garnet lost the game from the foul circle, converting only I2 of 21 free shots while the Continentals made good 19 of 22 attempts. Hamilton led 27-I7 and 40-32 at the termination of the second and third frames. The Garnet staged a last period rally but fell short of the necessary points. Pemrick set the pace for the Nistadmen with 17 counters followed 'by Tim Shea and Dick Roberts with 16 and 12 respectively. The prize upset of the year came in the Garnet's Final home appearance when it edged through with a narrow 54-53 victory over a highly favored Trinity College quintet, The lead changed hands throughout the tilt and made the Final result unpredictable. Union held a 25-22 halftime lead hut had dropped down to a four point deficit, 'll-3-45, as the clock showed three minutes remaining. Pem- rick, Schultz and Bill O'Neill caged twin counters in the final minute to give the Dutch- men a 54-53 lead which they tenaciously clung to until the game had been completed. Peni- rick and Roberts paced the attack with ffl points apiece, while Markt's gave his usual Hue demonstration on the defense. Despite efl'or'ts to repeat the earlier triumph over the Engineers from R.P.I., the Dutchmen found themselves trailing 59-48 in their final contest of the year played in the Troy Armory. lim Schultz .

Page Thirty-eight Although the Union five was not on it played doggedly to close the year on a bright note. Both quintets made numerous misplays, prob- ably caused by anxiety to win, but the Cherry and White used its superior height to advan- tage in gaining the laurel wreath. The great- est lead Union could claim 'throughout was an 8-7 margin early in the initial stanza. The 25-17 R.P.I. halftime lead was reduced to five points in the third quarter, but was in- creased in the final frame. The Garnet's hopes for registering the first Union triumph on the R.P.l. home court in five years were soundly crushed. The old cry of "l'Vait 'til next year," could be heard resounding about the Schenectady campus immediately after Union closed its most successful campaign of recent years. Nistad will feel the loss of Markes and Bob Bartlett, leading reserve, but will have -four of his five on hand for another season, plus a wealth of material from the Freshman team. Markes has been a mainstay on Garnet cage teams for the past three years, playing first string all three seasons. He was one of the most 'dependable men on the team and exhibited outstanding defensive ability. Ag- gressive tactics have made him a man who will long be remembered 'by many of Union's opponents as the sparkplug of the team. Bartlett played his second season of varsity basketball this year, having previously earned his letter with the 1942-43 team -in his sopho- more year. Bartlett's height was employed to good advantage under the fbackboards and his steady performance aided in several Union victories. The nucleus of next season's cage squad will include Go-captains-elect Pemriek and Bill Grant, Schultz, Roberts, O'Neill, Shea, and Tony Coppola. With this number of ex- perienced men on hand Nistad may well ex- pect to produce one of the best teams ever to don uniforms for the Garnet. Pemrick set the pace for the Dutchmen in scoring this year with the grand total of 231 tallies in 16 games to give him almost a 14.5 per game average, one of the highest in the state. Schultz registered for runner-up honors with 157 counters, a 9.8 average. Top: Pemrick struggles for possession of the ball as Union upsets Vermont.

As a result of the interest manifested, the Stu- dent 'Council became a truly representative body. The Council began its term by working in conjunction with the Board of Managers in planning the Freshmen Orientation program. A committee headed by Bernard T. McGivern planned the orientation lectures and discus- sions which proved very beneficial to the year- lings. The Campus Chest drive directed 'by Lyle Dean was sponsored by the Council and had marked success. Steps to oller the Student Body a full social program were instituted in the Fall of 1947 with a series of informal dances follow- ing the home football contests. Several simi- lar dances were held during the Winter and Spring with the idea of occupying normally empty Saturday nights. The Mid-Winter Ball was presented by the Council and efforts were made for better scheduling of All-college dances so that a full week-end of entertain- ment might be offered guests. A revision in the athletic award system was sought and gained by the Council after pre- liminary set-backs had occurred. The Coun- cil went further in its efillorts to promote athletic activity and organized the Block HU" Society, following which it secured Adminis- tration recognition for a Union Collece soccer team which will face its first intercollegiate competition in the Fall of this year. Steps to stimulate extra-curricular activity participation were made in the form of a suggested change in the eligibility require- ments, the establishment ol' "Meritorious Ser- vice Awards," and the recognition -by the Council of a number of new activities. In accordance with stu-dent desires the Council planned a series of election cam- paigns for the general elections for Class Presidents and Student Council Representa- tives this past April. The program included Chapel speeches, campaign articles in the Concordicnsis, and speeches over WRUC. A record number of students indicated their choice of nominees on voting machines loaned the Council by the City of Schenectady. The Council has also re-written the Stu- dent Body and Student Council Constitutions in an attempt to clarify many of the ambigui- ties present therein. The new Constitution will be submitted to the Student Body for ratification early in the Fall. The Student Council hopes that its actions to meet the desires and needs of the Student Body have aroused the students' interest in their government and that the future will find much more active participation in that government by every student. President Hill and Secretary Tway lead the Student Council through an active year. .L ,l . " ' 'CWJFTQ i Al - A The Philomathean Society stresses roundtable discussions as a new style of debate. 14 fan cfedaifinp 1 '7he Philamdhema To climax a heavy year of activity, the Philomathean Society represented Union at an annual meeting of debating clubs from several colleges in this area. Throughout the past school year, the debatcrs, lead by President Ralph Nestle, experienced a full schedule of dual debates both at home and away. The general aims of the oldest campus or- ganization are: to gather and discuss current controversial topics in a friendly manner. From such a plan, the active participants learn how to think and discuss quickly and logically. Informal round table discussion, instigated at Union, has been adopted by other colleges to the point where it is almost universal. On this year's agenda for discussions were Utica College, St. Lawrence University, Albany State Teaeher's College, lNest Point and Middlebury College. Socialize-d medicine, Universal Military Training, and the St. Lawrence waterway supplied ample material for some of the intercollegiate matches. The Union team traveled a great deal before the war but as yet has not returned to the -pre-war schedule. At away forensic encounters, the usual complement consists of a two or three man team. On the campus, the society meets every Monday evening. The normal size of the group averages Fifteen men which is ideal for their purposes. Joint discussions with the Philosophy Club and the International Rela- tions Club added to 'intra-campus activity. Page F 0 My-one -wa Playa za :JW In their second post war season the Mounte- banks celebrated their twenty-fifth season of production by presenting one three-act play and a series of three one-act plays. Opening the year was "The Gentle People" by Irwin Shaw, one of America's leading playwrights. This play is a realistic drama of the little man being beaten down by force until he finally revolts. Fine performances were turned in by Vincent DeBaun and Arthur Cohen, both of whom graduated in January. Mitchell Rabbino and Robert Riesner played good supporting roles. Roland Baldwin and Thomas Elliott did their usual excellent job in constructing several diliicult settings. In February the Mountebanks presented "Strike the Scene", a group of short plays that included "Aria da Capon by Edna St. Vincent Millay, "Minuet" by Louis Parker and "Ways and Means" by Noel Coward. Jack Irnrie and Robert Miller supported by Jack Milford and Alfred Siesel did a superb interpretation of Millay's symbolism. In the second play, which was also produced at the Russell Sage Drama Festival last fall, Clark Potter in the starring role received outstand- ing support from Hugh Wisoff. In a typical Coward bedroom comedy, which featured an eight foot bed, Arthur Kean had the audience rolling in the aisles. Numerous small sup- porting roles helped to heighten the humor. Plans are now underway for a drama festi- val to be held at Union next fall with several other regional colleges participating. Also under consideration is a program of exchange plays with neighboring colleges. It is hoped that next year the group may be able to re- turn to their pre-war schedule of three pro- ductions per season.

The Student Wive's Club presents a closely knit group headed by Mrs. Glenn, Mrs. O'Neill, and Mrs. Lawrence. '7f:eq faeqz Me Jfame 4iae4 guanine The Student Wives' Club, which was formed last year because of a desire to attain a closer relationship among the wives of the married men on campus, has continued to ex- pand its field of endeavor. The Club originally was founded as a purely social institution, but, under the spirited guidance of Mrs. Alfred Bobst, it has passed beyond the stage of weekly meetings and occasional parties to that of a conscien- tious group intcrested in solving any difficul- ties of its members. With the constant increase of prices of all household goods, many of the wives have had a difficult time balanc- ing their budgets, so to gain information on eounteraeting this condition, guest speakers have often come to the meetings and have given helpful advice on such topics as the balancing of the budget, the care of the kit- chen, the planning of meals, and often some very helpful hints on the raising of children. Within the Club, there are three smaller groups: the Glee Club, Bridge Club, and Dramatic Club. Almost every member of the Student Wives' Club is a member of one of these groups. They have helped pass the long hours while the "other half" was in class, and at the same time have brought the members into Il closer understanding of the others' prob- lems. One of the largest projects of this year was the making of some beautifully decorated Easter baskets for the patients at Ellis Hos- pital. In addition to this, there was the for- mation of the Community Baby Sitting League. The League's members consist of some of the wives who have no children. There are two main goals on the club's agenda for next year: the formation of a co- operative for the buying of food, drugs, and clothing, and the making of the Student Wives' Club of Union College an oliicial chap- ter of the nationwide Student Wives, Club.

The Delphic Society was founded during the war when college spirit was at its lowest ebb and its purpose was to promote and sus- tain the traditions of the college. The mem- bers of the society were to be the stu-dents who had rendered outstanding service to the col- lege. The group was composed of twenty mem- bers and rendered such services as ushering in chapel and assisting in the indoctrination of the Freshmen. The group also served at the annual Freshman tea and organ-ized some school dances. This past year, the Delphic Society has evolved into the school's honor society. This change from a service to honor society was brought about by the reactivation of such groups as the Student Council, Board of Managers and the Block "UU Society. The need for a service group to sustain the tradi- Paqe Forty-four tions of the college seemed to wave at this point. It was also felt, by the members, that they didn't have time to perform the usual services requested of them as their time was occupied by the extra-curricular activities that did not exist during the war. The Constitution has been revised and the new purpose is: to perpetuate the name ol Union College through assistance to the acl- ministration. The membership of the group is now restricted to twenty upper-classmen whereas for-merly any member of the student body who had completed a year of college was eligible. Last year the Delphic Society proposed and inaugurated two Delph-ic trips, through New England and the Middle Atlantic States. Seven students and two faculty members went on the trips. The purpose of these trips was to help high school and prep school students in their appraisal of colleges. Special aspects of college education were covered in short talks, following which the audience was en- couraged to ask any specific questions they had. These trips proved to be very worth while and are now an annual allair. This past winter another trip was made through the Middle Atlantic States again while another trip extended to Western Pennsylvania and Ohio. This past year the following men comprised the society: Douglas Barry, James Baar, Louis Snell, Charlie Grimes, Robert Bartlett, Robert Heidell, Harry Hawkes, John Newton, Albert Hill, Jamie Dennis, Ernest Peltz, Lyall Dean, Alfred Lewis, William Grant. we gfechicaf Zagmefm gel' zfagezfhm The campus student branch of the Ameri- can Institute of Electrical Engineers is a particularly active one. The story of how it came into being is quite interesting. Back in l9l3 an organization for the electrical en- gineers was started under the leadership of Dr. Berg. It was known simply as the Elec- trical Engineering Club. During the twenties an entire fraternity of electrical engineers, Eta Kappa Nu, was established which took the place of the club. However, after a. while, interest in the fraternity waned, and there was a new trend toward affiliation with the A.I.E.E. Accordingly, a student chapter was set up at Union in 1936, The A.I.E.E., which is the national organi- zation in electrical engineering, was founded in 1884 for the purpose of advancing the pro- fession, maintaining a high standard am-ong its members, and developing the individual en- gineers. Students of electrical engineering may become members at a. reduced fee. A student member gets, besides the many ser- vices of the institute, a subscription to the magazine, "Electrical Engineering". The national organization also sponsors 125 stu- dent branches in accredited engineering col- leges, and the Union College Branch is one of them. According to the constitution of the Union College Branch of the A.I.E.E., "The purpose of this organization shall be the advancement of the theory and practice of Electrical En- gineering and the allied Arts and Sciences, and the maintenance of a high professional standing among its members." The specinc aims of the cha-pter are to further the social life and contacts of the electrical engineering students, to provide at the meetings good speakers well known in the electrical field, and to make excursions to places of interest to the members. The National Institute offers prizes for papers written by members of stu- dent branches on under-graduate work. There- fore it is also the aim of the local branch to encourage this competition to write prize papers to be presented by the students at the District One Convention. To become a member of the organization on campus, one has only to be, to quote the constitution, " . . . registered as a student, graduate or under-graduate, in Union College, who is pursuing a regular course in prepara- tion for the profession of Electrical Engineer- ing." In addition, anyone desiring to hold office, must be a student member of the Na- tional Institute. The oiiicers for 1947-48 are. Joseph A. Youngman, President, Lawrence M. Hughes, Vice-President, Kenneth N. :McIver,- Secre- tary, and Carl E. Burmaster, Treasurer. Mr. Youngman graduated in January, and Vice- President Hughes became president for the rest of the term. The year 1947-48 has been a very fruitful year and was high lighted by many outstand- ing events. The Union Branch attended a joint meeting at R.P.I. of the Schenectady Branch of the National Institute and the R.P.I. Stu-dent Branch at which was featured a prominent speaker on electronics. The club sent delegates to the District One Convention in New Haven. A trip was taken to W.R.B.G. television at G.E. where members witnessed everything connected with television, 'both dramatic and technical. Another trip was made to the Cohoes hydroelectric plant. Near Christmas time the chapter held a joint dance with the civil engineering club, the A.S.C.E. Many meetings were held at which speakers discussed numerous phases of electrical en- gineering from management to research. In past years noteworthy events took place, too, for the organization made excursions to big plants such as G.E. and the Telephone Com- pany. The A.I.E.E., headed by Youngman and Mclver, serves as an activity for overworked Electrical Engineers Page Forty-five '7Ae eiaif Zngineead, - nal' :fa Je ou-fiona . . In the fall term of 1947, following a four year wartime lapse, a student chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers was re- organized on the Campus of Union College. Ofhcers were named in the yearly election which took place early in February. Michael Setne and Murray Harper were elected to the positions of president and vice-president re- spectively, while Walter Somerville was named treasurer and Henry Carlson secretary. Professor Harry H. Hawley, in his Hrst year on the faculty at Union, is the adviser for this group of some 60 Civil Engineers who actively participate in the organization. -Student chapters of the society are widely distributed throughout the country, 'being located in the majority of schools where a Civil Engineering course is available. These student chapters form a junior part- nership to the A.S.C.E. proper, which is an organization of some 21,000 active, graduate engineers. Founded in 1852, the national organization serves to unite in a common bond all Civil .sry sas ,2Ess Gene Girard Dan Sharpe, and Professor Taylor lead an active group of Civil Engineers in a valuable organization. Page F orty-six Engineers and to aid in establishing business and social relationships between members. The purpose of the student chapters is to aFford to the engineering student the begin- nings of professional associations, both to the work and to the people connected with it. The student chapter prepares the neophyte engin- eer for entry into the national organization, and acquaints 'him with the benefits derived from such an association. Membership in a student chapter of A.S. C.E. provides to the erstwhile engineer oppor- tunities to acquaint himself thoroughly with his field of endeavor. As a member he receives subscriptions to two organs of the society, 'gProceedings', and "Civil Engineeringn. In these publications he finds contemporary work on engineering problems and solutions. Prizes are offered both nationally and locally for essays and functional writings on engineering subjects. This provides an im- petus to creative ability and opportunity to express opinions. At meetings held once monthly, the student forms acquaintances with practical engineer- ing through motion pictures, lantern lectures, accompanied by mimeographed, keyed talks and by discussions and lectures by prominent engineers and speakers. In addition to these monthly meetings sec- tional conventions and joint meetings, in con- nection with other student chapters, are held to form a more closely knit organization and acquaint each chapter with the policies and activities of others. Field trips to actual con- struction projects incrcase the student's practi- cal knowledge of engineering, while business contacts to the important industries in the locale of the chapter maintain a constant re- lationship 'between school and industry, linking the theoretical to the actual, and thus afford- ing the student a tangible basis for his start in Civil Engineering. 9. fl.

Two or three Friday evenings a month, the lights burn bright in the English reading room of Bailey Hall and half a hundred, or so, Union college men lean back on their chairs and absorb varying amounts of in- formation on the world outside the old Blue Gate. 'These interested students are the mem- bers of the I.R.C., a group which devotes it- self to "promoting the better understanding of the peoples of the world" among them- selves and others of the student body. An IRC meeting usually gets underway about seven thirty on these Friday evenings. There is an air of informality about the room as the members and their guests fit them- selves in. The evening lecturer is introduced and speaks briefly on his chosen subject. A general roundtable discussion follows. The guest speakers are carefully chosen with re- gard to their knowledge to the topic and are of top caliber. This year the club has heard from, among many others, Dr. Langmuir of G.E., and Brigadier General Treadwell. This year the vital necessity for accurate information on the varied political situations in other parts of the world has made the I.R.C. of more importance on the campus than ever before in its history. In responding to this need, the club under the presidency of Jack Tway has enjoyed one of its most successful years. This fall, several representatives attended the New York Herald Tribune Forum on in- ternational problems in New York City as members of the student section. Later on, several more were among students from one hundred and seventy colleges at the eastern states conference of the I.R.C. These and other similar activities have brought the society into close contact with other inter- national relation clubs in nearby colleges. The I.R.C. is again sponsoring this spring, its annual conference for high-school students on work problems. Limited to the area high- schools, it will attempt to make clear the prob- lems of an international world.

The membership of the Physics Club is open to students majoring in Physics and those with an express interest in that branch of science. The regular weekly meetings of the organization pursue a wide program of ac- tivity including general diseussions, talks, demonstrations by instructors, and the pre- sentation of men in the realm of physics as guest orators. Through these weekly col- loquys the members are able to correlate material assimilated in the classroom with its practical application in the Physics' world. The important project on the club agenda for the '47-'48 academic year was the Eastern States College Science Conference. In collab- oration with the Chemistry Club and the Biology students the historic Union campus was opened to several hundred representa- tives from a majority of the eastern colleges. Page Forty-eight During the conference discussion sessions were hcld, practical demonstrations staged in each division and several scientific theses presented, all with the objective of stimulat- ing interest in science and shedding light on the various phases of the constantly chang- ing fields of study.

The Union College Bridge Club is the youngest of all the present activities on campus. The Bridge Club had its beginning in Hale House where students gathered after lunch to play a few rubbers of bridge. At first the students conducted tournaments among themselves and later against the faculty. The idea of forming a club grew out of these informal meetings and a charter was granted in the Fall of 1946, for the ex- press purpose of furthering knowledge and stimulating a greater interest in the game of bridge. The present club is under the guidance of Professor Fox and has a record enrollment of forty-two members. In the past year it has been responsible for giving lessons to those men who are not members of the club itself. Since its organization the Bridge Club has competed in the Intercollegiate Bridge Tour- nament. This year the tournament -is being held in Chicago and the Union Bridge Club hopes to send one team to this event.

The Society was short lived and in the early twenties The Chemistry Club was founded under the leader- ship of two outstanding students, Rudolph Schatzel and Anthony Zachlin. The early life of the club was immensely profitable to the students in that they had the privileges of With Loomis, Southworth, and Professor Hurd supervising, the Chemistry Club has a good year. hearing such famous scientists as Langmuir, Whitney, Hull, and Foster to name a few. The Club is greatly indebted to the General Elec- tric Company for its help in supplying speak- ' ers and material for their -programs. The Chemistry Club was also invited to the Gen- eral Electric 'Company each week to hear a series of scientific speeches sponsored by the Page Fifty H company. During this time the Club pro- duced three or four Chemistry shows which have since been discontinued. During the years 1929 and 1933 the Club was almost inactive and suffered a serious decline, both in iniative and members, and it was not until 19,35 that the Club emerged from its lethargy through the leadership of Herbert Zuhr. The 'Club was brought to- gether once again and enthusiasm was stimu- lated. It was also through the leadership of Zuhr that the Chemistry Club sponsored a Chemistry Symposium to which all the Eastern Colleges were invited. From this grew The Eastern Colleges Science 'Conference which now includes all the sciences and to which Union College was the host this year. The present club 'is open to all students in- terested in Chemistry for the purpose of creat- ing a greater interest in the science of Chemis- try. It alfprds great opportunities for the students to hear outstanding speakers and, in some cases, to render reports themselves. To be a senior member of the club the stu- dent is required to be an American Chemical Society Affiliate. All other members are classified as junior members. This year the Club has taken a series of trips to the neighboring plants and factories to study the chem-ical operations of the product manufactured. Such activities have included tours of the 'State Health Labs. in Albany and the West Virginia Paper Com- pany in Mechanicville. Siucfeaifi The Union College Spanish Club was organized this year in response to a general feeling by students in the field ol' languages that a more realistic and valuable approach to their courses could be obtained through thetie appreciation of Spanish culture. This year the club has been highly success- ful in the accomplishment of its aims under the leadership of John Stuckey as President and Prof. Charles Watland as Advisor. With Jack Stuckey and Professor Watland help the Spanish Club become a stable group of unquestionable value. language clubs. Followed later in the year by the organization of a German Club, this organization seems to have set the precedent for a more thorough exploitation of the real values found in studying a foreign language. The club seeks to promote the study of the Spanish language, literature, and civ- ilization, to further an interest in and better understanding of the Spanish speak- ing peoples, and to foster a sympa- only Spanish being spoken at the meetings, a working knowledge of the language has been built up. In addition, a highly successful social season was enjoyed by the club, topped by the reception held at Hale House for an impressionistic Chilean pianist touring the campus. At this occasion, a concoction figured to stir up the hot blood of all real and synthetic Spaniards was served to the delight of the largest turnout of members of the year.

Fifty candidates re- ported to the Alumni 'Gym for the initial call to practice on March 17th. The first three weeks were spent in indoor sessions due to the adverse weather conditions that made prac- tice impossible on the diamond. Un-der the careful eye of Coach Art Lawrence, the team rounded into shape remarkably well, and the Hnal cut left a squad that was potentially one of the best in the history of Union sluggers. Bartlett, Hochuli, Rice, Haas, Breeding, and Armstrong vied for 'berths in the infield g 'Chap- man, Enstice, Meehan, and .Ioboggy rounded out the outfield, McQuade, Lunde, Pincus, Brown, Weiler, and 'Mendelson were candi- dates for the mound, and Eade, Philo, and Albrecht loomed as the best qualified for posi- tions behind the plate for the Garnet. Mc- Quade and Lunde put in the best pre-season performances on the mound, the one worry of Coach Art Lawrence was his lack of spare hurlers to take over the tossing in the tight Page Fifty-eight tbzamwtl swat as ,mr demon la equal spots. In the persons of sluggers Enstice, Chapman, and Haas, the club was assured of an offense that would keep the outfield of any team on their toes. The season officially opened on April 25th when the Garnet invaded the Hill of Syra- cuse University to meet the highly favored Big Orange. But at the end of the 4th inning the game was halted by rain with Union on the low end of a 4-3 tally. The following day, the traveling Garnet by-passed a weak Hamilton squad 7-2 at Clin- ton. John Lunde did the honors on the mound, allowing nine hits while passing three and striking out four. Union tallied its first run in the third, and came back in the filth for four more before Hamilton could register. In the 7th and 9th frames, the Garnet hit Hal Enstice winds up for a successful pitching season highlighted by his won over Colgate. home again to total seven runs against the lone 2nd and 7th inning tallys for the Buff and Blue. The first home game of the season was held on Alexander Field on Tuesday, April 29th when Union played host to Middlebury. Phil McQuade was on the mound for the Garnet, and after a first inning scare when Middlebury annexed four runs, he held the Vermonters at bay while the Garnet proceeded on its way to a 10-4 victory. With only three scoreless in- nings for Union, the Lawrence coached squad turned in one of its 'best performances of the season. Truman Rice was sent to the bench with an injury, -but the versatile Garnet switched Bartlett over to short and moved "iMulc" Haas in from the outfield to take over first base. Hobart was next on the schedule, but in- clement weather cancelled the fray, and the Garnet moved on to meet the strong Uni- versity of Rochester club. Despite a stellar job of pitching on the part of Hal Enstice, the Garnet dropped a close 5-3 decision to the boys from Eastmantown. A ninth inning rally by Union that nearly turned the tables was of no avail, and the Garnet suffered its first loss of the season. With hits :by Enstice, Bartlett, and Haas in the 9th three runs were scored but the next three up for the Garnet went down in succession to end the contest. Roches- ter scored single runs in the 2nd, 3rd, and fifth, and came up with a double tally in the sixth to win 5-3. Ithaca College provided diamond entertain- ment for prom weekend, but the Dutchmen were definitely the stronger team as they dis- played their superiority to the tune of 8-4. The following week, Hamilton College played a return game on Alexander Field, and the Garnet, hosts, once again, came out on the long end of the 8-5 score. Rochester again returned to meet Union, and the Garnet, intense on revenge for their The baseball team chalked up one of the best records in Union College history under the leadership of Coach Art Lawrence and budding major-leaguer "Mule" Haas. Page Fifty-nine earlier defeat, hand-ily topped the visitors 4-1. A Hrst inning spree that netted two runs for Union paved the way for a lead that the Garnet failed to relinquish during the re- mainder of the contest. Three men were left on bases at the end of the Hrst frame, and the battle resolved itself to a pitching duel, with Enstice carrying the brunt of the work for the Garnet. The versatile "Big H" scattered seven hits to come out on top, despite the four hits that Union was able to annex from the determined Yellow jackets. Superior defense on the part of the Union squad spelled the difference in the final score. Saturday, May 17th found the Union team notching up its most impressive w-in of the season when it downed the Engineers from R.P.I. 17-5 in Hawkins Stadium in Albany. Union got off to a slow start in what appeared to be a close battle, but in the fifth stanza the Garnet came from behind with four runs to set a pace that it never slowed despite the futile attempts of R.P.I. to halt the local club. The sixth was a field day for Union with six runs, and one more in the eighth and three in the ninth sewed the game up for the Garnet. Haas had a perfect day at bat with a triple, two doubles, two singles and a walk. Eade came out with two for two and Hochuli two for three. The battling Purple from Williams invaded Alexander Field on May 21 only to be dropped by the Garnet 3-1. One of the best defensive games of the season, the entire match was highlighted by sparkling fielding on 'both sides of the battery. First scoring was marked by the Ephrnen when they shoved their lone tally across the plate in the third, but after that, McQuade twirled flawlessly and the Purple were unable to effect another score during the remainder of the game. Union scored first in the fourth when Haas singled and managed his way around the rest of the bases in a clever bit of stealing. The winning r-un came in the fifth when Philo walked, went to third on Eadeis single, and scored on a wild pitch, Page Sixty McQuade allowed only seven men to reach first, four on walks, and three on safeties. Enstice came in from the outfield to take over the mound and the Colgate nine when the gentlemen from Hamilton attempted to set up shop on Alexander Field on May 24th. Giving up only three hits and an equal num- ber of walks, the Big Hal's pitching was the difference in the 3-O contest. The shutout of the up-state sluggers was highlighted by the five strikeouts that Enstiee ehalked up to his credit. "Mulch Haas came through with four singles in four tries to lead the batting for the day. A post season game was held on Alexander Field on Alumni Day, June 7th, when the R.P.I. club returned to atone for their earlier defeat at the hands of the Dutchmen. Enstice was back on the mound for the Garnet for the full eleven innings of a hard fought battle that ended with the Engineers edging Union 6-3. Enstice allowed nine hits and nine walks while fanning five. Once again Haas led in the slugging with a triple and two singles. R.P.I. went out in the lead in the first only to lose it in the fourth when Union rallied. In the seventh Union tied it up once again when Haas tripled, and it wasn't until the eleventh that a Union error set up the win- ning runs for the Engineers. Despite the lack of spare pitchers, the Dutchmen turned in one oif their best records in Union diamond history. McQuade and Enstice 'bore the 'brunt of the hurling, the former annexing three wins and the latter capturing four wins against two losses. Lunde won his opening game but after that was not used. The season ended with a total of eight wins against two defeats. lBig "Mule" Haas was the standout on the slugging end of the squad with a final .500 average. Bob Bartlett registered a .427 and Chapman came through with a .304-. The 1948 squad will be the same as 1947 with the exception of Philo and Haas who gradu- ated fin June. Haas, after working out on a farm team this past summer, has signed a contract with the Pittsburgh Pirates. 74605 Squat! .faofu paw Opening its season inauspiciously with a loss to Trinity, the 1947 edition of the Union College track team awoke to its potentialities and emerged with a 3-2 record for the five meet campaign. The latent power revealed by the thinclads as the season progressed gave Coach Bill 'Ketz rosy prospects for the future since only one of his point scoring lettermen was due to graduate. Erratic weather conditions hampered the cindermen in their pre-season workouts and also prevented Ketz from developing team balance before the Dutchmen faced their in- itial test. The Trinity contest found the Garnet on the short end of a 69-57 score, al- though the Union squad evidenced fairly good balance even in defeat. The outstanding performance of the meet was made by Freshman Ken Whalen, burly weightman. Whalen heaved the 16 pound shot well over 45 feet to mark a new Union College record.

Whalen won the shot and discus, Wallington the sprints, and Culver the mile and half-mile runs. Belanger found his form as he strode to a triumph in the two mile run and Sharpe added a first in the quarter. The pole vault was captured with ease by Milford and Oyer took 'first honors in the high jump. McQueen registered the Dutehmen's tenth first position with a victory in the low hurdles.

The remainder of the scor- ing was handled by Wallington, Westlund, Lawton, McQueen, Personeus and Richards.

Page Sixty-four radon! lan' gem The squad was hindered both by lack of ex- perience and inclement weather during the training period. Several injuries left their scars on the season scoring, but under the spirited direction of Coach Fred Wyatt, the embryo team was moulded into an aggressive and potentially victorious outfit and the season ended with high hopes for the following year. It was a tough situation that laced Coach Wyatt last spring. An enthusiastic response to the initial eall was given, but experience was sadly lacking, and the outlook for the tough schedule that faced' the squad was not too bright. The only remedy in sight was the know-how gained from actual playing, and with this in mind, the stiekrnen bravely ven- tured South for a six game schedule during Easter vacation. Bill Grant, Doug Barry and By George led the thirty men that made the trip to the Capitol district for the practice frays against the strong Maryland leaguers. Theiiirst contest was held at Annapolis where the Dutehrnen crossed sticks with the cham- pionship U. S. Naval Academy team on March 3lst. The encounter ended in an expected landslide for the sailors, and the following day ended similiarly when the Garnet fell victim to the johns Hopkins University powerhouse. On April 2nd, the Mt. Washington Lacrosse Club of Baltimore played host to the locals, but once again experience was the ruling fae- tor that spelled defeat for the fastly learning Dutchmen. The balance of the practice games were held in New York area where the stiekmen dropped consecutive contests to Princeton, the Montclair Athletic Club, and the Man- hasset Lacrosse club. The undaunted Garnet, bruised 'but wiser, then returned to the campus to face its nine game regular schedule. On April llth, the Dutchmen entertained the veteran Hobart College squad on Library Field, and dropped a closely contested battle l0-6. lt was anyone's game in the first half, but in the closing period, the visitors dropped three goals in in as many minutes and final effort on the part of the locals was to no avail. Gerry Rost, Barry, and George each scored for the Dutehmen during the first half, while Satterly, the standout for Hobart managed to hit home three times during the same period. The third quarter was a nip- and-tuck battle, with a 5-5 tie score, but a fresh Hobart squad in the final period routed the tired Garnet. On April 18th, the Dutchmen travelled to Geneva, where they encountered the Samp- son Indians. It was the first win of the year for the locals, the final tally being 6-3. The next day the Garnet travelled to Colgate Col- ege dropping a close match to the Red Raiders lO-8. At half time the Garnet was in the lead 6-5, but once again the lack of reserves spelled the difference -in the final frame. The fighting Purple of Williams invaded Library Field on April 26th to stage the closest contest of the year. It was a tight fight all the way, but a superior 'Garnet edged out the visitors 5-4 in the closing seconds. Top honors for' the day went to Barry who sank two scores during the first half, and one in the third frame. On the following day, Lehigh University invaded the campus and sli-pped by a 6-4' win from the locals. Syracuse University shut out the locals on the following week at Syracuse when they pounded the Dutehmen 7-0 on a rain drenched field. Three days later the locals retaliated with a win over the Continentals of Hamilton College. Final games were dropped to R.P.I. and Stevens. The season total was 3 wins against 12 losses.

Its powers are: Clj to elect all mem- bers of the staffs of all undergraduate publi- cations, QQJ to remove from office Cafter a just hearingl any officer of an undergraduate publication, to control all publication contracts, Q41 to determine, and supervise if necessary, the policy of all undergraduate publications. The Board consists of the following faculty members: Dean C. F. Huntley, Chairman, Dr. Carter Davidson, Mr. Francis Pray, Dr. Arthur Davis, Dr. Augustus Fox, Mr. Arthur Phillips. The undergraduates are Messrs, Hogeboom fTax Committeej, Cooke and Sarnoff fC07l6'07'di61ZJi5j, Landry anid Scheer CGARNETJ, Enzer and Fingar fldolj, and Baar fFrcshmau Rcoordj. William Brooks served Secretary until his graduation in January, at which time Lot Cooke assumed these duties. Besides the three major publications, there is one which is controlled by the Board-The Freshman Record, edited this year by james A. Baar, assisted by David Martin and Richard Geyer. The purpose of the hand- book is best explained by its dedication: "To the ideal of perpetuating the long cherished With Dean Huntley as Chairman, an active portion of the Publications Board meets to discuss common problems. . newer ...He iv te in i r .

As long as these rela- tions pcrsist Union College will remain more than books and dust not only here in Schenec- tady but in the hearts of her alumni through- out the world." The Record was Hrst published in I937. Besides the pictures and high-school records of the entering class, it contained a five-page pictorial history of Freshman Camp, pictures of the college ofhcers, the freshman advisors, the freshman athletic coaches, the directors of student activities, and a two-page spread devoted to Familiar Faces of the college. With a class book of this sort, it is extremely diHC1cult to alter the form in any startling way, especially where utility at a minimum of expense is the aim. This year, however, Editor Baar has introduced more pictures of college faculty members, as well as a section titled "Who's Who on Campus" containing pictures of big and little wigs on campus. The future of the Record is in doubt, as it has been suggested that its cost does not war- rant its publication. If the book could come out earlier in the year and still give the year- ling an all-embracing index of his classmates, it would seem worthy of continuance. Martin, Baar, and Geyer shrink from the camera as they meet for the last time as the Freshman Record Board. 7fze Mal will fm warm The Idol, Unionls literary magazine, has had a very diversified existence since its found- ing in 1928. In its early years it was rather limited in its appeal, containing mainly the output of the Advanced Composition classes, and similar material. This policy led to the falling off of student interest, and in 1937 a shift was made to a magazine of greater variety, and consequently greater interest. The Idol at 'present is primarily a literary magazine, but does not exclude other material. Controversial issues affecting the student body are welcomed on its pages, and numerous illustrations, a few cartoons, editorial com- ment, and the Off 'Campus column are mixed with the more literary contributions. The basic point in the Idol's fpolicy is that its pages are open to Union students for anything that they write. The disappointing thing in the past year is that very few students have taken advantage of the opportunity to see their work in print. In order to stimulate a greater amount of interest in writing, a friend of the college offered fB1,500, to be used for prize money in a contest sponsored by the Idol. Any material 'by a Union student that has not appeared in print, or has not been accepted for publica- tion was eligible. As an additional incentive, the contest rules provided that no prize smal- ler than S100 be awarded, and that the prize money might all be given to one person, if the judges found that one entry was far superior to the others. If the results of the contest are satisfactory, it is to become a per- manent feature. I L. .3 sl? 5 Enzer at rest in the Idol oflice.

Celebrating its ninety-third year of pub- lication with this issue, The GARNE1' stands as the third oldest yearbook in the country boasting a continuous existence. Until 1877, the yearbook of Union College was published in conjunction with the college catalogue, and was primarily an information bulletin. At that time the yearbook became an entity pub- lished by the senior classg and drafted the name of the college color for its ofiicial title: The GARNET. In the late l800's, The GARNET contained no pictures, consisted chiefly of information about the Greek-letter fraternities. The year 1890 saw the first group pictures published in the book. In 1900, the Juniors assumed responsibility of publication of the book 5 the book broadened to include individual pictures of the Junior Class members, as well as articles describing campus activities. In 1937, the book assumed its present form, with individual pictures of the Seniors rather than Juniors appearing. Ostensibly, it has remained a Junior Class publication, although it has 'drifted away from this rule in recent years. This year, the Editors have tried several innovations which they hope will give the book a more informal appearance. The tried and true cover of past GARNETS has been dis- carded for a more striking displayg the fra- ternity pictures have been taken outside both for the sake of informality and clarityg a theme has been painfully run through the entire book. -If this is a precedent for a more down-to-earth publication in the future, the editors will have realized their goal. Scheer, Wcissbcrg, Landry, and Hopkins look over an old issue of THE GARNET. 31 Qu 7am-A ef: ay swxmmz Graduation is a time for sentiment. Aside from the joy accompanying the attainment of a difiicult goal, there is also a sadness per- vading the atmosphere of graduation. Close friends go their respective ways as the com- mon bond of college fades into pleasant memories. On the eve of graduation it is fitting to pay tribute to our college and friends in appreciation for the stimulating and happy experiences they made possible. We pay tribute to Prexy and his administra- tive staff for their consistent efforts in our behalf. Often their work is unheralded, but it is essential for the smooth functioning of many activities on campus. How many times has ,Nfiss Rapelje arranged to eliminate eight o'clock classes or Dean Huntley sympathetically The supreme moment-the award of the sheepskin. listened to reasons why girls should be allowed above the fourth floor of the frater- nity house or perhaps why girls were there without permission? Where would the veterans be without Professor Ketz's welcome credits for military service? Small 'details . . . perhaps. iNe salute the library and the patient stafl' within who manage to work and smile some- times under the most trying eireumstanees. Often an enrapt freshman sits for hours motionless except for wandering eyes which scdulously follow a pretty stafl' assistant. Seniors allocate their time better . . . one hurried glance and they date her. We want to show appreciation to our athletic teams and even to R.P.I. for their share in keeping our spirit strong. It could be untrue to call R.P.I, an enemy, but as a rival she helped keep alive the college spirit that has enveloped us. The haircuts, the bonfires, a painting trip to Troy, and UCRS broadcasting developments from scenes of ac- tion are lively memories we cling to and thank Rensselaer for. During football season, the College tunes itself to the excitement of training its teams for victories. Sometimes in the late after- noon when the squads are running through the-ir paces, the band practices its martial music stirring the entire campus into vibrant realization of the reality of our college. At those times our college is so real we can al- most rcach out and touch it, losing ourselves in something greater than each of us. Not a small part of our tribute is given to the bull sessions. Usually they end up at the local tavern over a harmless brew, but there was one session that took place recently which deserves special recognition for it points up the tragic potentialitics of this common pas- time. It seems that there were several notorious Bailey Hall philosophers in secret conclave one evening. They were having difheulty in solving the world's problems and contrary to the accustomed calm platonic discourses which might have been expected, the philosophers had -become emotional in their speeches. One of their number suddenly rushed to the window, opened it wide fmonth of Decemberj and then hurried towards the door apparently intending to open it too. As the irate philosophers grappled with the up- start, one of them suddenly screeched, "I never saw him before!" None of the philoso- phers had noticed the hapless engineering student who had chaneed upon their den. As the story goes, the session was continued, and the next day the philosophers buried the en- gineer. An autopsy report showed that he had died of hot air. fThe moral of this story, -beware of hot air-is not intended to detract from the intrinsic value found in bull sessionsl. In paying tributes, we realize that there is a great deal more than the college oflieers, the spirit of the athletic field and the wonders of the bull session to praise. Each day we seurry in and out of classes in an effort to maximize those basic mental aptitudes which we have and which society needs. Yes, this is praise of ourselves. Learning does not come from easy eflortsg rather does it require a consistent ap- plication to what might seem like dull work in the light of the many distractions that in- sidiously draw us from studies. In the face of these and other obstacles, some men we started college with have dropped out. We who remain have avoided those everpresent pitfalls which hazard a collegiate. Some of us have managed our education more easily than others. There are a few who reach that happy stage where studies and classes are no longer considered laborious, rather do they become a source of great enjoyment. These fortunate few deserve a special salutation. Paying tribute would not be com-plete with- out mention of the faculty. We are about to leave, and as we look around it is probable that some among us will choose paths similar to those our -professors have chosen. This is not hard to understand. The friendly willing- ness to hear about problems in schoolwork and as well, anything else that might crop up, be it a job, the future, love or marriage has en- deared many of our professors to their stu- dents. VVC app1'eciate the fact that our professors are not a million miles away from us as they conduct classes. It is a comfort- able feeling to know that the fellow lecturing does not pretend to any position of grandeur, he is the fellow with whom you are congenially gabbing at a fraternity dinner, and who will cheer just as hard as the next man when it comes to supporting our teams with a little spirit. This is the man truly deserving the name professor, for in realizing that he will always remain a student himself he has no pretension to grandeur in teaching others. Finally we are left with one more tribute which is the most important of all. Let us pay tribute to and try to appreciate the con- cept of one world and a united nations in the hope that some day our sons and daughters will be able to offer tributes at graduation.

Zaehlin lee cz qaowp we'fl aememdyz One of the most active groups on campus this year has been the College Glee Club and Choir, under the directorship of Dr. Elmer Tidmarsh and Mr. Robert J. Hicks. A highly successful joint concert at Union with Elmira College Glee Club in early fall was followed by two Christmas concerts at Salem, N. Y. and at the Monday Musical Club in Albany. The group also sang at the annual program of Christmas Music at Union, drawing a capacity crowd of students and local citizens. Besides singing in the daily chapel pro- grams and the Sunday services, the 'Choir and Glee Club followed an ambitious schedule of concerts throughout the Spring months of March and April. The Vassar College Choir journeyed to Union during our Winter Week- end to sing in a Sunda.y afternoon concert, and a few weeks later the Union songsters rc- ciprocated while on a tour of Connecticut and lower New York State with a visit to Vassar. Continuing with a tour of northern and wes- tern New York, the Choir and Glee Club sang at Amsterdam, Little Falls, Fulton, Syracuse, and Cooperstown. Dr. Tidmarsh completed his twenty-fifth year as director of the groups with a joint concert with the Emma Willard Glee Club in Troy and the participation of his choir in the Fiftieth anniversary celebration of the Shubert Club in Schenectady. Dr. Tidmarsh, Alan Martin, and Dave Robinson lead the Glee Club to top Eastern United States recognition. Assisting Dr. Tidmarsh and Mr. Hicks are David Robinson, manager, Richard Bennett, librarian, Alan Martin, financial manager, William Herrrnan, publicity chairman, Stan- ley Piedecka, Richard Bennett and Paul Black, pianists, and Winthrop Stone and Frederick Conklin, soloists. Mr. Robert Hicks is new to the College this year, but already has shown considerable in- terest in the Band and the Choir and Glee Club, acting as co-director in both organiza- tions. The Glee Club in concert attire as it ends the year by winning a competitive exhibition against other college choral groups. 64 96' e N lhe compl fern of college life There are some achvlhe seem 'ro have no peak season . . . ca seasonal Among lhe former 'lhere s a osl' prommenlly a syslem of fluc+ua+ing popu- la and a+ hmes of queshonable need . . .

Religion Anawa no aeaaan The Union College Christian Association, whose purpose is to promote the all around development of the individual and to help him adjust creatively to his social and spiritual environments, has enacted a program envelop- ing multifarious activities designed to lead to the consummation of this ideal. Under the capable gui-dance of the Cabinet, the Associa- tion,s governing body, and on the foundation of a newly ratified constitution, it has instituted as its main project the School of Religion in which over one third of the men on campus are participating. Working towards the ob- jective of stimulating interest in religious matters, this innovation is classified as an ex- periment in interfaith cooperation. Through the medium of courses on various theological topics the Association hopes to clarify the The Christian Association had a stormy year but remains a sm enigmas that lead to misunderstanding con- cerning the many devotions. The Association mainta-ins a Bible Study Fellowship and a committee in charge of the facilities of Silliman Hall, in addition to spon- soring the lecture series on "Courtship and Marriage" and the surveys of student opinion on topics of current interest. Membership in the Association is open to any student or Faculty merrn-ber who engages in any activity of the Association and sub- scribes to the purpose of the organization. With Chaplain C. Victor Brown serving as advisor, the Association operates with a four man executive group. Officers for this year were William Hio, Presidentg Ralph Reed, Secretaryg Roger Stevens, Treasurerg and Stuart Merriam, Program Chairman. oothly functioning group. A scene at the huge Communion Breakfast held with the Ellis Hospital Newman Club President Furlong's face can be made out with luck. fvewman ehadclazmatyuaufmof Laffy The Newman Club is a Catholic Club of culture and fellowship, which fosters the reli- gious, intellectual and social interests of the Catholic students of 'Union College. It also contributes to the life of the campus by as- sisting the 'College and the students whenever possible. The idea of Newman 'Clubs was conceived by 'Cardinal Newman, and the movement inaugurated by five Catholic stu- dents at the University of Pennsylvania in 1893. The Newman 'Club is a member of the Newman Club 'Federation of America, and, here at Union, its membership num-bers ap- proximately three hundred and fifty men. Like some other student activities at the College, the Newman Club lapsed into a somewhat dormant stage during the war years. However, the fall of 1946 witnessed the re- organization of the Club, and the appoint- ment of the Reverend Francis X. Ryan as its chaplain. Since its reappearance on the campus, the Newman Club has become strengthened by the interest of its members, and has taken its rightful place among the numerous student activities functioning at Union. fl' he Newman lClub holds approximately two meetings per month, 'to which prominent Catholic lecturers are invited as guest speakers. Talks on such vital subjects as Dogma, Faith, Moral-s, Philosophy, and the Bible are pre- sented. These talks are always followed by open discussion in which the students partici- pate. Among the major activities -of the Club are the Annual Communion Breakfast and the Annual Lenten Retreat. These functions are offered in complement of the student's liberal education, and' serve as a means of coordinat- ing the religious and intellectual life of the student. The principal speaker at the Com- munion Breakfast is a Union graduate who has attained prominence in the professional world, while the Retreat is conducted by mis- sionaries who have dedicated themselves to this work. Joint meetings have been held with other colleges, and, in the past, several fine dances have been held with Russell Sage and Saint Rose Colleges. The Newman Club holds a re- ception for incoming Freshmen each Septem- ber in an effort to assist in the acclimation of the new student to the campus. The year's activities are terminated by the election of otlicers and the formulation of the plans and policies for the forthcoming year. Page S eventy-ui 71,6 Waajmniifiea awfmaie in 4 calmed The Interfraternity 'Council at Union Col- lege serves as the representative governing body of the fraternities here, tak-ing the form of a council which serves to promote their common interests. The duties and functions of this council are mainly: to establish rules governing interfraternity relations, to discuss fraternity and interfraternity problems, to dis- cuss pertinent problems involving adminis- tration-fraternity relationships, and generally to promote the general welfare of the fraterni- ties. The council integrates the activities of the individual fraternities, and does everything it can to promote the welfare of the fraternity system on the national scale, and here at Union. Membership in the 'Council consists of all fraternities duly recognized by the ad- ministration with the exception of honorary groups. It is composed of two duly elected members from each fraternity, with one to act as the regular representative, and the other as alternate. Voting in the Council is by individual members, with one vote allowed to each group. The election of the ofhcers for the ensuing year takes place at the last meeting of the school year. Meetings this year were held bi-monthly on Tuesdays in the Silliman Hall lounge. The Council is fboth a governing and regu- latory body, and the body to whom appeals are made either by individual students or by any of the houses in regard to unfair treat- ment. Rules regarding the dates of rushing and "hell" week are established and enforced, and a degree of cooperation is attained in this respect from the administration, with the faculty supposedly easing up a bit. This year particular attention was given to these dates along with such other pertinent topics as the rules and policy of the ehaperones at house parties, and whether or not the Interfraternity Council should sponsor for this year the cost of procuring better athletic awards. One of the outstanding social events of the year is the annual Interfraternity Weekend, sponsored by the Council, being held in con- junction with the last football game of the season in the fall. The year saw one of the largest turnouts ever, and the dance was not only a social success, but a financial one as well. This years members were: David Kil- lian, President, Malcolm Hopkins, Vicc-Presi- dent, Stu McClea.ry, Secretary-Treasurer, Bud Mills, Bernard McGivern, Lewis Pultz, William Grant, John Poole, Milton Ellerin, Richard Thorn, Edward Layden, David Strauss, Lloyd K-ieran, Jay Bottomley, William Meyer, Kenneth Sheldon, Philip Geisler, David Lieberman. The Interfraternity Council is caught in typical meeting attire as they group behind President Killian and officers McCleary and Hopkins. Kappa Alpha won the fraternity display contest with the steamroller on the leftg Phi Sigma Della won the hearts of several nimble-fingered passers-by with a less aesthetic approach. aaafaniiiu Wwe gow Jfe2z.e-- '7fzeq MMI fveawz lie Jfme In 1935, rlllili GARNIi'I' conlaiized the following article concerning fraterrzilics and their fzitzzrzf. Ihrcaurn the jzrolzlrzins and cures discussed in it so closely parallel the f1'ale1'nity .silzuztion today, we reprint the article, with a few minor changes. The world today favors expedieney rather than ideality. Religion, art, and every great cultural element in modern life have been in- fluenced 'by practicality. Old traditions an-d outmoded ideas have been ruthlessly east aside for more tangible and firmer practices and for a new held of thought. The modern judg- ment of everything seems to be influenced not by hallowed memories of the past, but by its actual use to the present. The college world is not uualleeted 'by this popular movementg indeed, it leads in the elimination of worthless practices and institu- tions by constantly trying to sweep away the old order. Nor does it believe that something better must be substituted for everything that is torn down. Hell week and hazing are rapidly 'Lgoing the way of fur coats and hip flasks." The country club type of American college has given way to the institution of learning. Although these changes are parts of an extensive transitional mOVCmCI1t, no one of them seriously affects the lives of a great number of students. Other existing institutions, however, are more seriously threatened. Shall the nation- wide system of fraternities be classified as another relic'of the past and be discarded? Will they be found incompatible with the new order of things of which practicality is the keynote? Certainly an attack has already been launched with such force that many col- leges have entirely or partially succumbed and many more are being shaken. E Perhaps the charges of snobbery, poor scholastic stand- ings, demoralizing influence, expenses without compensation, are justified. Perhaps the fra- ternity as it exists today is a parasite, sucking out the best blood of a man, and contributing to him no recompense. If this situation is as bad as many paint it, the fraternity is doomed to oblivion. Nfany of the greatest intellects of the col- lege are to be found in the fraternities, refut- ing by their very presence many of the attacks on scholarship. Certainly they will not step aside, quietly admitting these charges, and watch the disappearance of their own brother- Page Eighty-one hoods, yet, at the same time, they are far too discerning to disregard the eminent danger. Realizing that without ideals the world would never rise much above the animal level, they propose to employ practical means of preserv- ing those ideals. What means to adopt re- mains largely an open question, a challenge to every existing fraternity. The leaders, how- ever, have already laid plans for an extensive program, they propose: to raise the fraternity to a higher cultural level by self-criticism, and 'by inviting men of note to their chapter houses, to promote friendlier relations among the fraternities through social gatherings, to bring the fraternity closer to the college and xx The year 1948 finds the "mother of fraterni- ties" with eighteen national chapters repre-- sented on the campus. An analysis of the membership or a walk through a chapter house will show that the effects of the war are still with us and will be felt until 1950. Ages range from 17 to 30, a conglomeration of ex-G.I.'s and men graduated from secon- dary schools within the last two years. De- spite this diversification of age and interests everyone is getting on amazingly well to- gether. The war talk and G.I. jackets have slowly been relegated to the trash heap and proms, intramural sports, and the old fraternity rivalries are creeping back as the topics of conversation at the dinner table. Iniiation both in enrollment and prices have hit the houses with decided emphasis making themselves especially evident at meetings and on the first of the month. Class delegations, again the war, are bunched erratically and the next two graduating years will produce an abnormal turnover for most chapters be- fore returnfing to a balanced group. The class of '51 is the first class which could be called :pre-war, larger yes, but com- posed mainly of non-veterans who can ex- Page Eighty-two to the outsidetworld in feeling as well as in fact, to raise scholastic standings not only through selection of pledges, but by supplying guidance to Hweaker brothersf, and by main- taining, in part of the house at least, an at- mosphere more conducive to concentration, and to hold more informal social gatherings for alumni, parents, and friends. These are only a few of the many practical plans which are being considered. The importance lies in the fact that some definite action is be-ing taken, for the fraternities realize more than anyone else that they must show themselves worthy of the faith old Union, their fostering mother, has in them. xxxxxx pect to pursue a normal four year course. How well the fraternities will bridge the four year gap between normal operations will de- pend upon these men and how well they are indoctrinated in fraternal life by those who were here in 1942, the only link between then and now. The respons-ibility is a great one. Pre-war practices have been modified by in- terim experiences and mature leadership can have an influence which will be lasting. The Inter-fraternity Council's renovation of the rushing has allowed for a waiting period of one month between rushing and pledging which gives both fraternity men and pros- pective brothers a better opportunity to make a choice. This system was found to have worked out well in the fall when a record number of men pledged. Those fraternities without houses have plans for a new quarters on paper and are engaged in fund raising campaigns. With the return of reasonable -building costs another' fraternity row will appear and the Delta Phis will have some new neighbors. fBut that is the future, now the 1948 Greeks.

The fraternity was first, too, in publishing a catalogue of membership and in establishing 21 sisterhood for wives and sweethearts of members of the fraternity. The expansion of the society has been slow and extremely conservative. BROTHERS IN PICTURE. Top row: David Smith, john Ostroin, Caxnrrori Boyd, William McWhinney, John Edmondson, William Milton.

It was the orig- inal intention of the nine charter members to have a literary and debating society as well as a secret brotherhood. For many years the literary character ol' the fraternity was con- tinued, the reading of original essays and de- bates on political questions being important parts ol' the meetings. Typical of the Union Triad, the fraternity has been conservative in establishing chap- ters, and has kept them centered in the East. One of the first fraternities to provide liv- ing accommodations for its members, the chapter has enjoyed a continuous existence here at Union. At the celebration of its Cen- tennial in 1927, Delta Phi presented Union with a memorial Sundial, now in Jaekson's Gardens.

With the establishment of new chapters, Psi Upsilon spread into twenty- eight other colleges and universities including two Canadian chapters. In 1892, the Theta became the first chapter of any fraternity to build its own chapter house. It was also the first fraternity at Union to take members from all four undergraduate classes. At the celebration of its Centennial, the Theta pre- sented the College with a flagpole in memory of the founders of the fraternity. BROTHERS IN PICTURE.

They charged the secret societies with being un- democratic and tending toward a social aristo- cracy. As Delta Upsilon expanded to its present roll of sixty-one chapters and well over twenty thousand members, the need for a positive object became evident and its aims became typical fraternal aims. It still does operate as a non-secret society, however. The second chapter of Delta Upsilon was founded here at Union in 1838. Blzorrraits IN PICTURE.

It remained incletive until 1924, when the old Pyramid Club up- plied for and was granted 21 charter by the Grand Council of Theta Delta Chi.

Tillot, '03, local lawyer, for his winter view of the Chapel Clock. Evan Richards for his excellent photography around campus, typified by the divi- sion page shots of the tree, the calendar leaf spread at the beginning of the book, the graduation and year-round division page pictures, and the beautiful color cover photograph. Al Hill, Hartley and John Vesty for the complete coverage of sports. Mrs. hlartini for understanding and patience, as well as for the lift in morale she provided when things went wrong. Dr. Fox for his advice and support in putting out this book. Richard Seller for his brief but effective passages on the seasons. David Nlartin for his coverage of the Fall Prom. G.

We hope, however, that you will think, as we do, that this represents the most picturesque seene on campus and that the beauty of the finished product more than nullifies the poor journalistic makeup.
