A native Schenectadian, he was the valedictor- ian of his class, both of Schenectady High School and Union College. As a student at Union, and later a professor, he exemplified the ideals sc commonly attributed but so rarely achieved ol the understanding and intellectually stimulating teacher. It is difficult to point to any material thing and say, "This is Joe Ro's." His gift to the Unioi community was not material. It was the spirit o ceaseless inquiry and love for his fellow man tha remains as a goal to be ever striven for in the year to come. Dedicating an issue of the Carnetiis only small token of the appreciation, love, and respec that the class of 1954 holds for Joseph Rotundo. t41 V...-, 4 K -Q-,A f , f 1 'if5"f..'Q'-5 .fy T 't ri .9 I Y ZA... .

To achieve its objective of producing reasoning, re- sourceful, and responsible citizens, Union in 1845 pioneered in the adoption of a program of balanced education. It was the first American college to put instruction in engi- neering on a liberal arts campus. Today this objective is successfully carried out by the division of courses of courses of study into four main classicfications. In 1934 the Division of Humanities was first estab- lished. By presenting courses in Ancient Classics, Ap- preciation of Acknowledged Beauty, English Construction and Literature, and foreign languages, Union College approaches creation of that undefinable end known as liberal, cultured education.

In today's turmoil of everyday happenings in the bus- iness, political and social life of the world, the student of Division II attempts to associate proven practices and in- terpretations of statistics and past history to the solution of such problems. Grouped within this division are the department of Economics, Philosophy, Government, History, Sociology, and Religion. Majors departmental or divisional are of- fered in these courses. Many students from other di- visions choose many electives in these courses of study. The Division of Social Studies, in combining the age old studies of history with the modern scientific approach of economics and sociology, parallels the efforts of Union College to obtain order from the chaos which prevails in the world today. - DEPARTMENT HEADS OF DIVISION III Front Row, left to right: LEONARD B- CLARK, Biologyg DAVID S.

It WHS not long after that other farsighted eflorts in this field brought Electrical Engineering to Union. Now, in Ove more YCHF, the first class of Mechanical Engineers wlu be graduated from her class rooms. The attitude of constantly trying to add more diversi- ed Courses to the engineering curriculum has resulted ln the creation of a strong department in the past and will Ontinue to broaden it and strengthen it in the future. bus the Division of Engineering under the guidance of rofessor Harlow and his associates continues to credit llle traditions of Union College. Ours is the age of science, when scientists and teachers are greatly in demand in governmental as well as in- dustrial research and developmental projects. Union's program has taken this situation in hand. The depart- ments of Biology, Chemistry, Geology, Mathematics, Physics, and Psychology are undoubtedly the most special- ized and have all been grouped into Division III. A degree in such scientific studies as these was first offered at Union College under the leadership of Pres- ident Eliphalet Nott. Today, over a century later, with the advent of the Atomic Age a growing demand for technical trained people shows that Union's efforts in this field were and will continue to be a very important part of her educational objective.

Outstanding among the contributions of the group have been the publication of "The Gridiron" the official program sold at all home football games. The Society this year again played host for Parents' Weekend in May. This weekend was orig- inated four years ago and has proved a rousing success largely because of the efforts ol' the Delphic members. Next fall the Delphics will take on another great responsibility, the running of the Freshman Orientation Program. lt is hoped that since the Delphic Society numbers among its members many of the leaders in the various campus activities that this program will run more efficiently than it has in the past. The Society is composed of approximately twenty students chosen from the Junior and Sen- ior classes. During the past year, Anthony Tar- taglia served as President and Dale Christie was the Secretary. Henry Swanker was the ,faculty ad- visor. Hal Van de Car rendered invaluable advice to the group in the planning of the Parents' Week- end. U73 tudent Council 181 The Student Council of 1953-54 found its agenda quite full. The Council under the presi- dency of Norm Scull and with George Zervas as secretary, adopted a policy this year of opening the Council meetings to anything the students of Union wanted to discuss. The highlights of the year in- cluded a contribution to the revamping of the chaperonage and alcohol usage rules by the admin- istration, investigations into the athletic and activity award systems, the sponsorship of a blood drive, a fall Prom Display Contest, and a very success- ful Tippecanoe Conference. The Publicity Com- mittee, chairmaned by Jerry Cohan, received much Commendation for the publicity it provided for sports events at Union. Tony Tartaglia's Activities Survey Committee spent an active year in consult- ing with the activities and helping out where they could to continue our healthy extra-curricular pro- gram. Both the Student Tax Committee and the Campus Chest Committee did admirable jobs this year under Dick Hoffman and Dave Balderston. respectively. In addition, members of the Student Council were instrumental in the West College Din- ing Hall inquiry, with Norm Scull and Dick Hoff- man on the college committee. W Council meetings were very short this year because extensive use was made of the committee system. Problems were almost always referred to a committee first, saving the group as a whole for final decisions and for policy making. Elections received more support this year than in recent years. This was due to a spirited fresh- man class, and the endeavors of the Council Elec- tion Committee, headed by Dom Carbone, to ad- equately advertise these elections and to stimulate W interest. in 6 . ..-.....? NORM SCULL, President and GEORGE ZERVAS, Sec- retary, guided the Student Council This Year. tudent Tax Committee A permanent committee of the Student Coun- cil, the Student Tax Committee is perhaps the most P0werful student group at Union. lt levies the Student Tax each term and supervises the distri- bution of funds to all of the college's tax-supported activities. Meeting at least once a week and ad- vised by the Coordinator of Student Activities, its members, two seniors, the President of the Stu- dent Council, and a junior secretary, must be thoroughly familiar with the purposes and prob- lems of many highly individual student groups.

New editors and business managers must be both nom- inated and elected by the Board. Last year the Publications Board, among other things, decided to put a ban on liquor ads appear- i ing in the publications.

Idol The IDOL found its ranks seriously depleted by the graduation of the Class of 1953. A large share of the work was done by Editor Norman Scull, Associate Editor Richard Herrmann, James Garrett and William Graves. The magazine suffered through part of the year without a Business Man- ager until senior Marc Donovan volunteered his services. The format of the magazine remained about the same as that established last year. Better aspects of the magazine included the St. Andrews' articles and the I.D. section. Freshman Record pq Qtr' fza 'J This huge staff labored weekly to publish the Concordiensis. i 3 A Q 'iff CO CORDIENS S In February the Concordiensis entered its seventy-seventh year of publication, keeping its journalistic eyes on the past and the future as well as the present. For this year's staff, 1953-541 represents one link in the chain stretching back to 1877 when John Howard Paine "put to bed" the first issue of what is now the thirteenth oldest college news- paper in the United States. E243 The intervening years have given the Con- cordiensis a heritage of a high and continuing standard of journalistic excellence which the pres- ent staff has sought to uphold and carry forward. Time has reinforced the spirit to defend the hard- won freedom of the press, now under such vig- orous attack from both the left and right. Being aware of the vital center of responsible leadership, the Concordiensis has aimed at coop- eration with other student and administration leaders to promote the best interests of the college and the student body. In October, the staff publicized grievances over West College food prices by selling orange juice for the "impossible" price of Sc per glass, and making a profit of 318.25 in four days fwhich was subsequently used to help launch the Campus Chest drive in Januaryj. Editor, HERB SPIRA and Business Manager BOB BECK review work. A thorough investigation of the situation con- ducted by an administration-faculty-student com- mittee resulted in personnel adjustments at West College and Hale House. During November, when the spotlight turned to football, the paper proposed an eastern Little Ivy League. Eleven Little Ivy college newspapers printed a flood of violent opinions from presidents, coaches, sportscasters, and students on both sides of the question. On November 20, the rare Hedera- helix Ivy plant, donated by Professor William Winne, was presented to Amherst in recognition of their teamis splendid undefeated season. A con- ference was called for February 20 to decide the fate of the proposed organization. ., o,,,, s. I R "7v . L' l 'ir TTT ,. 4.

Twelve first-semester issues were published, in- cluding such features as a foreign exchange with Scottish and South American newspapers, a forum OH the Schenectady elections, and a special Christ- mas edition. The present staff looks forward to adding an- other solid link to the chain of good coverage, in- tegrity, and student representation of the Con- Cordiensis.

The Garnet holds a distinctive place in American college literature, being one of the oldest college annuals in continuous publication. This year's edition breaks from the traditional pattern in several respects. The first is the unusual color scheme of the cover which first introduces the theme. The use of color in the opening section and on the divider pages highlights the book. The effective and we hope interesting characterization of the "Dutchman" serves to unfold the events of 1953-54. Another new departure will be the pub- lication of a 16-page supplement this summer to record the spring sports of 1954 and the commence- ment activities of the Class of 1954-.

WR In its twenty-fourth year, WRUC, the college radio station underwent several major changes. The first big change was the return to broadcast- ing six nights a week, Sunday through Friday. Last year the station had only been on four nights a week, Sunday through Wednesday. The next big changeover was from a two-man system of an- nouncer and controlman to a one-man system with the announcer doing his own controlling. By this method, the technical department increased its size. As a result, in December, the long awaited sound Yi?

The sound dolly is also equipped with a public address system so that it may be used by the Mountebanks for sound effects in their plays. Through a contract with Lucky Strike, the radio station acquired a United Press ticker-tape and presented a nightly fifteen minute news show. another first in its history. Composed of a membership of about fifty, the radio station was headed by Walt Hoffman as Station Manager. The news comes in 24- hours a day over WRUUS new UP ticker tape. Next in the executive department are the pro- gram, technical and business managersg Saul Bab- lnn, Lloyd Fallowes, and ,lohn Davidson, respect- 1VelY- AS per usual, sound advice was given to the Station by its faculty advisor, Donald Jones. Other Officers are Bob Mesard, chief announcer, Eliot Schechter, chief controlman, and Dick Duane, chief maintenance engineer. Besides the news show, there were several other highlights in the program department. Walt Stark continued with his line work as moderator on the popular, U20 Questionsn show. Through the efforts of Lin Swearingen, WRUC signed a con- tract with the Hi Hat Club to do a weekly jazz Show every week from the Club. Due to popular demand the air time of the concert hall was in- Creased. As has been the case in the past, WRUC also ran the public address at Freshman Camp, athletic events, and several other college functions, Under the direction of John Alderman. After another year of successful broadcasting. WRUC looks forward to increasing its staff and Services to the student body. tw X tire The Amateur Radio Club has as its aim the en- couragement of interest and activity in the "ham" radio field. The club maintains and operates its own short-wave radio station under the call sign WZGSB. Actual operation of this equipment re- quires the possession of a license which is issued by the F.C.C. after the applicant has passed an examination. However, having a license is not a pre-requisite to becoming a member of the club. we ' p gli "'ii I WRUC has zz wealth of technical equipment. All that is required is a genuine interest in amateur radio. Many members obtain their license after joining the club. The main transmitter operates on all the pop- ular amateur frequencies with a power input of about 350 watts. Both radio-telephone and radio- telegraph facilities are available. Contacts with amateurs all over the world have been made. """" Wzc B ,.. l v I Unionfs ham, radio fans. i303 These are the men who work behind the scenes to present top notch productions at Union.

The Dutchmanis Rathskeller, which began its fifth year of activity at Union last December is the most unique activity on campus. A flourish- ing business ranging between 315,000 to 820,000 is done here annually. Every phase of the organ- ization is student operated. Beside the fact that the Rathskeller provides a badly needed gathering spot for the student body, both food and drink at reasonable prices, most of them lower than any- where downtown, are served. The possession of a beer license makes it even more unique, being one of the few campuses in the country on which beer may be sold. The Rathskeller operates on a small margin of profit and the return is invested in the business. Student gain invaluable experience in all phases of business from actual working experience to man- agerial experience in the purchasing, personnel and bookkeeping departments.

The job of the Freshman Orientation Com- mittee is that of getting the Freshman Class so- cially and academically acclimated to college life. The Committee planned, under the leadership of Jim Hoffman, a group of talks by the college ad- ministration, an activities smoker, and helped with the Presidentas Tea during the opening days of college. They also published the Freshman Hand- book. Other members of the Committee were George Zervas and J im Brown. rf: ' If.

E561 Philomathean ociet The Union College debating society, the Philo- matheans, is perhaps the oldest part of Union Col- lege. Its origin dates back to its founding at the Old Schenectady Academy, two years before the founding of Union College. Since that time, its activities both on and off the college campus and its contributions to the college community as a whole have given it an important place in the life of the College. In the past the debates between the Philo- matheans and the Adelphics were important events on the college calendar. Recently however these have been discontinued and the debate group has sought other means of propagating its name in the forensic world. Ever prominent in the field of in- tercollegiate debating, the club has proven this year, as in the past, that it is a formidable foe with which to contend. Union's inability to contend with the larger more populated schools is not car- ried over into the field of public speaking, rather it has become common for Union to be rated as a top-flight opponent and many of the larger colleges and universities, such as Dartmouth, M.I.T., Ver- Union's debating club, which continued its excellent record Of the past. mont, Harvard, and others, have had ample reason to regret this accomplishment. This year besides having gained a good group of new debaters the club has also made one of its best showings ever in the Vermont debate tournament as well as in single debates with other colleges. The future looks bright and with many more years of successful competition still expected. , r 3 1 I OFFICERS Left to right: CARL FISHER, Secretaryg PROF. VON SCHLICHTEN, Adviser, CONRAD SCHMINKE.

Adviser. ,IW lpha Phi Omega Alpha Phi Omega, a national service fra- ternity with approximately 250 chapters through- out the United States, was chartered at Union in 1948. After a whirlwind beginning, the organiza- tion became quite inactive during the past two years. However, with an entirely new group, and many new ideas, Alpha Phi Omega has shown some of the old spirit of the late forties. The largest and most satisfying project of the year was the food drive for needy families of the area. The tremendous cooperation by the faculty, administration, fraternities and students, plus thc knowledge that someone has been helped, made every ounce of effort worthwhile. The Alpha Phi Omega book exchange also operated successfully this year. ag 1' Band Mr. Bert Hayes has taken over the position of leader formerly held by MfSgt. Miller of the AFROTC. Under the direction of Mr. Hayes the Band has taken a turn away from being solely a marching unit with new emphasis on concert work. In addition to football trips, the Band has plans for concert trips in the spring. The music library has The band officers check a score been greatly supplemented and modernized by the purchase of new music and by the institution of a Grant-in-Aid librarian. Though small, being com- posed mainly of freshmen, the Band of about 30 active members has many fine musicians and a very able leader. Officers were Richard Olsen, Manager, and Daniel Clapp, Librarian. .JN If gr L r lx' .Q 26 l39l The Union College C-lee Club under the di- rection of Robert Campbell has established a record on the campus that few other activities have matched. During 1953-54, the fifth year Campbell has directed the group, it numbered eighty men, more than doubling the membership with which the group started and obviously evidencing the prestige and popularity it enjoys with the student body. Its yearly program is an active one, consisting of two big annual campus concerts in the fall and spring, usually in conjunction with the visiting glee club of some women's college, such as Russell Sage -A Kll Mr. Campbell directs a rehearsal of the Glee Club or Sarah Lawrence. In addition, the club presents other concerts in and around Schenectady, includ- ing concerts for Union alumni groups such as Al- bany and Schenectady, which regularly sponsor the club, and also a fairly extensive spring tour which consists of one or two weekend trips. The group is fortunate in having such an out- standing musician as Robert Campbell to direct it. A graduate of Ithaca College and Boston Univer- sity, he is a prominent teacher and conductor in Schenectady and his firm guidance and remarkable musicianship have brought the glee club to a stand- GLEE CLUB OFFICERS Left to right: BILL HANCOCK, Librarian, DICK HERR- MAN, Managerg DAVE THURBER, Librarian, MR.

Completely student-run except for musical di- rection, the club has also been fortunate this year in having active student leaders and soloists. Roger Collins, Richard Herrmann, William Richardson and David Thurber have appeared as soloists in various concerts in the past year, and the executive board consisted of David Thurber and Richard Coe, librarians, Frederic Morris, recorder, William Hancock, publicity director, and Richard Herr- mann, student manager. Choir The Union College Choir is among the oldest activities still functioning on the campus. Under the capable direction of Dr. Tidmarsh, the choir has continually presented sacred music ol the high- est quality. Each week the choir provides the music for the Sunday Chapel Service, which is broadcast over station W.G.Y., being, the only activity on the campus regularly broadcast to the community. In addition to the Sunday services the choir sings at other important functions. Among these are the three big Christmas music festivals which mark the highpoint of the musical year at Union. E413 421 The student branch of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers has for its purpose the development of character and leadership in the field of Electrical Engineering. The branch holds regular meetings con- sisting of lectures by prominent men well established in their particular fields of work. In addition each year the branch sponsors an open house, holds a joint meeting with the R.P.I. branch, and conducts paper contest. contest. A.I.E.E The Union Student Chapter of the American Society of Civil Engi- neers provides the opportunity for the beginnings of professional associ- ations. Membership in the chapter assures that contacts can be made with the technical and professional progress of civil engineering and with the leaders who are responsible for such progress. Membership offers the chance to take part in the constructive activities carried on by future leaders of the profession. The student chapter supplements regular class and laboratory work and is the only agency that can relate the professional development of students to the achievements of A.S.C.E. 5525?-' The Pre-Medical Society holds two meetings a month, with programs of interest to Pre-Meds and Science majors. This year, the Society has innovated the practice of inviting prom- inent scientists and doctors to the campus for several day visits as guests of the society. Talks by members of the faculty on their own research, talks from local doctors and a series of medical motion pictures were other phases of this year's successful and rather full program. The officers of the society are: Howard Fox, Presidentg William Kessler, Vice-Presidentg Robert Beck, Secretaryg Michael Stein, Treas- urerg Robert Richter, Program Committee Chairman. Pre-Me The Pre-Law Society is composed of students at Union who are 1n terested in law as a profession. The purpose of the Society is to prepare its members for law school and show what the profession of law holds 1n store for aspiring young lawyers. P re -L aw This year the Society is following a new policy of meeting whenever a speaker of interest is on the campus, instead of having regularly scheduled meetings. The faculty advisor is Dr. Joseph Doty who is always willing to aid students who wish help or advice in selecting a pre law COUTSB. 441 .Jewish Religious Fellowship The Jewish Religious Fellowship is one of the youngest activities at Union. Among its undertak- ings are regular Wednesday noon services, and dis- cussions of important questions. Through the Jewish Religious Fellowship, Jewish students have received invitations from Schenectadians for ritual holiday meals. The Fellowship took an important part in Religious Conference Week. Christian Association This year the Christian Association has at- tempted to provide an opportunity for Christian worship, fellowship and study. The CA has spon- sored weekly worship services, and Sunday eve- ning discussion groups, both led by local ministers. ln the second semester the annual marriage course was conducted. These local activities are periodi- cally supplemented by participation in state-wide study and workshop conferences. Newman Club The Newman Club is an organization for Catholic students and its purpose is to provide spiritual, intellectual, and social activities for these men. This year meetings were held once a month under the leadership of Ted Hutton, President, Fred Emery, Vice-Presidentg Tom Miles, Secre- tary, and Nick Cicchini, Treasurer. Rosary de- votions, communion breakfasts, and social affairs rounded out the Newman Club's annual program. Physics Society The Physics Society is composed of math and physics majors who desire to broaden their interest and understanding of their chosen field. Lectures are heard from prominent men of the sciences and humanities and trips are conducted to research in- stallations in the Schenectady area. In this way the members of the Society are acquainted with the current applied and theoretical developments as well as the social and philosophical aspects of these sciences. Chemistry Club In line with its policy of acquainting the stu- dent with the practical aspects of chemistry, the Chemistry Club conducts several inspection trips t0 near-by industrial chemical concerns, including the Schenectady Varnish Company, the G.E. Re- search Lab, and the Albany Felt Company. Lec- tures by faculty members and men from the chem- ical industry are sponsored by the Club. Several films concerning the practical applications, re- search in, and advances in chemistry were shown. Our aim is to provide a means for students to ex- press their interests in chemistry beyond the class- room. Mechanical Engineers The Union College Student Society of Mechan- ical Engineers, a new organization on campus, is the preliminary organization required for thc founding of a student chapter of the American So- ciety of Mechanical Engineers. The Society plans lectures, movies, and inspection trips to further aquaint its members with Mechanical Engineering.

The clubis purpose is to provide good wholesome fun in out- door activities through group participation. The club's varied activities include canoe trips, mount- ain climbing, square dancing, and skiing. Flying Club This year marks the 8th anniversary of the Flying Dutchmen, Union's flying club. With the addition of a full-time instructor and another air- plane, the Club has doubled its membership this past year. Each year several qualified pilots graduate from the club's pilot training course. The club competes with other colleges in air meets held throughout northeastern United States. Rifle Club The Rifle Club was begun to bring together all men in Union College interested in shooting, and in entering a team in intercollegiate compe- tition. This team is firing a series of postal matches with other colleges. Shoulder to shoulder matches are being planned. ln March the team fired against all college rifle teams in the National In- tercollegiate Rifle Matches. Circle K Club New among this yearis student activities at Union is the Circle K Club. lt is a service organ- ization sponsored by the local Kiwanis Club. The Circle K movement is rather new and Union's club is the second formed in the east. The club function is primarily school service but also extends to the community. This year's officers are: Pres- ident, Donald Praegerg Vice President, Bruce Kel- lerg Secretary, Albert Loffredog Treasurer, Carl Paulson. Bridge Club This year, the Bridge Club continued to supply enjoyment to those who were interested. There were student-faculty tournaments once a month, and Union again participated in the National In- tercollegiate Bridge Tournament. ln addition, a dual match with Colgate was being arranged when the Garnet went to press. Club ofhcers were Roger Merrill, president, Martin Hauser, vice-presidentg and Peter Adler, secretary-treasurer. Campus Chest Committee The Chest this year tried to provide an edu- cated and mature basis for raising 32500 by in- forming every student clearly of the purpose of the agencies supported. With a theme of "student help to studentsn, the Chest next year will expend the popular chapel auction of administration ser- vices it inaugurated. E471 X The cheerleaders, led by Jim Spero, Abby T The Dutchmen The Dutchmen Dance Band, which was or- ganized last year, provides our campus musicians with an opportunity to bring new sounds to Union's old walls. The Dutchmen have a regularly sched- uled program which is heard by the college over WRUC, and they hope to put on several Chapel programs to add a little variety to our weekly Cheerleaders Gold's successor, promoted the spirit of the Union College student body at all athletic events. The squad ranging from five to seven men helped or- ganize the annual Pajama Parade into a very suc- cessful pep rally. They also led the cheering at all home football and basketball games. pilgrimages. Growing fast, the Dutchmen were heard more and more around the campus. Anyone interested in playing jazz and dance music is elig- ible for membership, so in the future if enough members show interest, the Dutchmen would like to participate in an intercollegiate exchange pro- gram.

Fraternit Presidents' Council In April, 1953, the Fraternity Presidents' Coun- cil was formed with the purpose of being a discussion group which would better co-ordinate campus and fraternity policies. In May the Council replaced the Inter-Fraternity Council, which up to that time had served as the representative govern- ing body of the fraternities. The new group has been able to express more directly the desires of the various fraternities, and since it has more power than the defunct I,F.C., it has been able to handle problems of a wider and more varied scope. The Fraternity Presidents' Council, as its name implies, is made up of the elected presidents of each fraternity. Its duties are mainly: to establish and enforce all rules governing inter-fraternity re- lationsg to discuss problems concerning fraternity- administration relationshipsg to set up an approved rushing plan to satisfy the majority of the studentsg and in general to promote the understanding and welfare of the fraternities. ln the past year, in addition to its normal duties, the Council has inaugurated exchange dinners between the fra- ternities. Under this plan each fraternity sends a small group of its members to another fraternity for dinner on a certain evening each week. The Council has also taken over the obligations of thc old I.F.C. and has sponsored Winter Weekend. The president of the organization since its conception has been Harold Olsen and William Barlow has been the secretary. The faculty ad- visors have been Dean Huntley and Mr. Ketz. f49 Dwight Ball, ,lohn Baltay, Storrs Bishop, John Boardman, Robert Boardman, Robert Brown, Thomas Burleigh, William Carey, Arne Ellermets, Francis Fay, Jerome Frank, Hilliard Gage, Richard Code, Lynn Hinman, Rupert Huse, Wesley LeMasurier, Richard Lounsliury, Carl Maynard, Arthur O'Neill.

Beta Eta Upsilon The Alpha Chapter of Beta Eta Upsilon was founded at Union College on October 30, 1947. This young fraternity has been nationally recog- nized as being a post-war leader in the promotion of the ideals of anti-discrimination and the brother- hood of man. Following BEU's enlightened approach to the fraternity system, the twenty-five upper-class brothers are proud of the non-secret and modern ideas their organization has initiated. Their motto of Brotherhood, Equality, and Unity has been recently extended to a second chapter located at Champlain College.

"Clean-up time" 5541 The Delta Chi Fraternity was founded in 1890 at Cornell University as a fraternity for law stu- dents. The year 1901 saw the chartering of the Union Chapter at Albany Law School. Upon be- coming a general under-graduate fraternity in 1927 the charter was moved to the Schenectady campus in the absorption of a local fraternity, Alpha Gamma Phi. The fraternity has forty-three active chapters at present with a .membership of over seventeen thousand. 1. Viv! 'x Delta Phi 555+ I I fs Delta Phi was the last of the three fraternities known as the Union Triad. lt was organized at Union on November 17, 1827. The founders were nine students who had met earlier that fall near the Scotia end of the old Scotia bridge and decided to form a secret fra- ternity. The intention of the original members was to have a literary and debating society as well as a secret brotherhood. For many years the literary character of the fraternity was continued in the reading of original essays and debating on poli- tical questions at the meetings. The chapter was one of the Hrst fraternities to provide living ac- commodations for its members and has had a continuous existence since its founding. rss "Musik: lovers" James Bollinger, Richard Conklin, William Dana, Roland Faulkner, .lamcs Fisher, Bruce Cidlcy, Robert llalhing, Richard Hartmann, Jonathan Hix, Howard llobson, William Hooper, Donald Horton, George l-lowland, .lohn Judge, Michael Kahn, Edward Kearney, Joseph Kimmel, Thomas Lindsay, Frank Lisick, Lowell Mcckli-r, Richard Mullee, Robert Penny, Charles Petersdorf, Edward Pieken, Frederick Puzio, Harry Sikora, .losuph Steiner, Henry Thornton, Earl Wlleclcr, Alan Whithers, Peter Viforcll, .lohn Wnrstcr, Richard Znmliar-li, Edvard Winm-ll.li.l..l'.

Eleven years later the first northern chapter was founded at Lake Forest College somewhere in Illinois. The fraternity continued to expand, moving into the mid-west where a chapter was founded at Purdue in 1885. There are now one hundred and twenty- five active chapters and approximately 440,000 alumni.

The ritual and records of the yearling fraternity were stolen due to ill feeling on the part of the DKE,s. A new ritual was drawn up in 1856 in the name of the Sigma Chi Fraternity since it was found out there was already a Sigma Phi Fraternity. Isaac M. Jordan set up the standards for new members which reads, "That no man shall be ad- mitted to membership who is not believed to be a man of good character, of fair ability, of ambi- tious purposes, and oi congenial disposition." Sigma Chi has grown to one-hundred twenty-three Witt, chapters. The Union chapter, Gamma Zeta, was founded December 3, 1923.

Missing from picture: Donald Grunewald. Three years ago a few men, who were not members of any fraternity, got together and es- tablished the Independent Organization of Union College. The purpose of this organization is not to discourage men from joining fraternities, but to provide those who do not belong to a fraternity with an organized social program. From the social standpoint the Independent Organization is some- what like a fraternity, but there is no compulsion to attend meetings or pay dues. There are approxi- mately three hundred independents on the campus and every one is automatically a member of the Organization, which is there for his use if he wants it. The Independent Council itself, a seven man council elected at the end of April each year, is a policy making body. Its meetings which are held every two weeks in West College are open to all independents. The Council has been more active this year than in the past, providing prom booths, parties in Sillirnan Hall, and intramural teams for independents. In West College the Council is plan- ning to set up and maintain a recreation hall. This organization is doing a great deal to make life at Union more enjoyable for the independents.

There is little doubt that the H.E.L.P. Program is accomplishing a great deal toward the further- ance of international understanding. Since the organization of the Program in 1948, sixty foreign students have spent a year at Union. The success of the Program depends upon the co-operation of the fraternities which provide room and board for the H.E.L.P. students. In the first year of the Pro- gram seven fraternities participated, and since that time different houses have come in and dropped out, depending upon circumstances. Almost all of them have participated at one time or another. Professors Gordon Silber and Stanley Johnson act as faculty directors of the H.E.L.P. Program. This year we've had seven H.lC.l...P. students and one student from the exchange program with St. Andrew's University in Scotland. While David Martin has been representing Union at St. Andrew's this year, we have had Graham lVlcNaughlon from Scotland with us. We hope that our foreign visitors have enjoyed their associations with us in studies, sports, activities, and social affairs as much as we have enjoyed having them here at Union.

New Athletic Director ppointed At a January meeting in New York, the Union College Board of Trustees voted to appoint Pro- fessor Wilford H. Ketz as new Director of Athletics, Football Coach Samuel C. Hammerstrom as As- sociate Director of Athletics, and Professor J. Har- old Wittner as Director of Physical Education in a move aimed at expanding the institution's ath- letic activities, according to President Carter David- son. Authorization was also granted to the admin- istration of the College to release plans and speci- fications for a new Memorial Field House to con- tractors for bids. It is hoped that construction on the new building will begin in the very near future. Commenting on the change-over in responsi- bilities which took place on February 8 of this year, President Carter Davidson said: "With the building of the field house, Union is entering up- on a new era in athletics and physical education. lt seems appropriate at this time, therefore, to realign administrative responsibilities so as to provide ad- equate manpower for the expanded program." Ketz, the new Director of Athletics, graduated from the University of Michigan in 1929. While there, he was captain of the track team and an out- standing track star, and since 1931 he has been head track coach at Union. In charge of the physi- cal education program at Union from 1938 to 1942, he was Director of Admissions from 1942 to 1946, and Coordinator of Student Activities from that time until the present. Last year, Ketz turned out an undefeated track team which won the championship of the New York State Track and Field Association. Whittner graduated from Union in 1920, has been a member of the Athletic Department since 1922, and since 1931 held both positions as Di- rector of Physical Education and Director of Ath- letics. Hammerstrom graduated from Union in 1940, was little All-American halfback as an undergrad- uate, and served as football coach of Jamestown High School before coming to Union as head football coach in 1950, His new responsibility will be in addition to his football coaching post. E 6' Block The Block U Society continues to remain as one of the largest extra-curricular groups on the Union College Campus. The membership includes all students who have won their varsity letters through participation in the school's athletic pro- gram. The society has been quite active in the past sponsoring banquets, which have featured timely speeches by men prominent in the world of sports. It has also been interested in the future of Union College Athletics and has invited men displaying both scholastic and athletic promise to visit the college for a weekend that they may become ac- Society quainted with the campus and its athletic pro- gram. This year, the society, with an eye to its treasury surplus is considering the choice of a suitable gift to help further athletic activities here at Union. At the present time the group appears bent to contribute a new scoreboard, sorely needed in the Alumni Gym. The society, under the guidance of its Pres- ident William Bloomfield and its advisor William Ketz, is looking forward to increased activity in the future, to correspond with the expected ex- pansion of the athletic program at Union. This will be due in part to the imminent construction of the new field house. Us 743 First Row, left to right: Line Coach A. Lawrence, J. Guerra, J. Wilkinson, W. Bloomfield, E. O'Meally, R.

Coach Sam Hammerstrom faced with the problem of changing his previous strategy to meet the requirements of limited substitution also was forced to meet the challenge of molding a varsity team void of freshmen. An Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference ruling, closing the door to varsity competition on the yearlings, kept the Garnet squad under three full teams throughout the campaign. 4 ffl Thrill-packed play, five hard-pressed setbacks, Q I' 2 In the ojiceg Head Coach SAM HAMMERSTROM and On the field, ART LAWRENCE, SAM HAMMERSTROM Line Coach ART LAWRENCE talk over season's strategy. and End Coach DICK CICCOLELLA before beginning Despite the lack of manpower, Hammerstrom, along with assistants Art Lawrence, line coach, and Dick Ciccolella, backfield and freshman coach, produced a hustling eleven capable of trouncing traditional rivals R.P.I. and Hamilton. Top-flight small college teams like undefeated Amherst, Wil- liams, and Hobart found the Dutchmen extremely troublesome. Halfback Len Klingberg's work proved to be the highlight of the season. Capping one of the most talented football careers ever at Union, the 165-pound, five-foot-eleven senior rushed past the century mark on five different oc- casions averaged 7.1 yards for his many carries, and ranked among the leading collegiate ground- gainers in the nation. The Dutchmen opened the season against al- Garnet practice session. ways-powerful St. Lawrence at Canton, N. Y. Two touch downs by the Larries in the fourth quarter broke up a tight ball game and gave the Northern New Yorkers a 25-7 victory. Union's only tally came in the second period when sophomore back George Wodarzak bulled over from the one after alert junior guard Joe Guerra had recovered an op- ponent's fumble. The following Saturday Amherst's Lord Jeifs, fresh from a victory over Ivy-League-classed Brown: invaded Alexander Field to help the Garnet open its home season. The talented Jeff crew, three deep in most positions, found no picnic as Union's undermanned eleven pressed action throughout be- fore succumbing 21-0.

Coach Ham- merstrom, directing a win over the Engineers for the fourth straight time, saw his forces build up a 26-6 lead at halftime. The Garnet reserves took over during the second half and tallied another touchdown against the inept Trojans to make the final count 32-6. Hobart's once-beaten Statesmen came to Schenectady the following week and gained a 191 13 decision though the Garnet outrushed its foe by more than one hundred yards. Klingberg scored both TD's for Union on jaunts of 35 and 37 yards and added 165 yards to his rushing total. Senior linesman Bill Bloomfield provided Union with some fine kicking, averaging 444.3 yards per try, but the victors took advantage of six Dutchmen fumbles to gain the decision.

Karl Reinitz, and H.E.L.P. stu- dents George Pasqual and Grahm MacNaughton, Union opened the season with a 3-0 loss to an experienced Rochester team. However it rebound- ed to subdue a scrappy Middlebury outfit 4-0. Fine defensive work by Dick Carpenter and goalie Gerry Jameson highlighted this win. Two quick setbacks to R.P.I. 4-1, and Albany State 2-0 were then suffered. Hallie Osberg, who had been unable to play previously, supplied the scoring punch to lead Union in a strong comeback. A disappointing 4-3 overtime loss to powerful Syracuse was followed by a 2-0 shutout win over Hamilton. This ended a six year inx of straight defeats incurred by them. Sterling play by Carl Paulsen, Ross Saddlemire and Don Zenger sparked this victory. A 1-1 tie with ever strong Colgate and then a 4-1 triumph over a previously undefeated Merchant Marine Academy, in which Osborg turned the "hat-tricki' by scoring three goals, closed out Union's season with a record of 3 wins, 4 losses and 1 tie. Having played their last game for the alma mater, Reinitz, Osborg, Zenger, Saddlemire, Paul- sen, MacNaughton, Eric Gansmuller, Edwuard Wium, Joel Citlin and Marco Clayton will be sorely missed. Nevertheless coach Gleich has in returning lettermen, Pasqual, Carpenter, Jameson, Wurster, Sommerville, Wolfensohn, Clark and Woodberry a strong nucleus for next year's squad. F font Row, left to right: Les Sohin, Al MacKinnon, Don Stack, and Elly Schechter. Second Row: Wilfred Ketz, Coach, Frank Magliato, Bill Matthews, Wes LeMasurier, and Gary Katz, Manager. Despite the loss of Dick Dolan and Cari Clough, Bill Ketz's cross-country team continued its victorious record with a 3-1 season. In its opening meet the Garnet suffered a 27- 31 defeat at the hands of a powerful and well- balanced University of Vermont team, even though Union's Don Stack and Eliot Schechter tied for first place. The following week, at their only away meet, the harriers defeated R.P.l. 27-30. Again, Stack and Schechter took the first two places. Union's power lay with Captain Don Stack, Eliot Schechter, and Al Mackinnon. This trium- virate could always be relied on to place well up in front of the pack. Cross Countr The problem of a weak fourth position was greatly lessened with the rapid improvement of Les Sobin who hacked several minutes off his initial times. Sharing fifth and sixth spots were Frank Magliato, Bill Matthews, and Wes LeMa- surier. Wes was forced to drop out near the be- ginning of the season due to a leg injury. The Middlebury College harriers were next to suffer defeat by the Ketzmen. Stack and Schechter again tied for first with MacKinnon right behind to score a 26-30 victory. The final dual meet of the season gave Union its third victory, this time against Hamilton., Schechter took first place, MacKinnon third, and Stack and Sobin tied in the fifth position.

ASKETB LL Varsity basketball candidates this fall were greeted by a new face as Dick Ciccolella, former Manhatten College star athlete, made his debut as Union College cage coach replacing Pete Nistad. Faced with a rebuilding job, Ciccolella had to find replacements for graduating lette1.nen Glenn Kinns, one of the greatest scorers in Garnet history who set an individual game record with 35 points, Gene Schwartzman, playmaker and co-captain with Kinns and Bob Murray and George Batkiewicz. ace rebounders. Five returning lettermen formed the nucleus of Ciccolellais first Union squad. They included senior Jerry Barandes and junior Dale Christie, co-captains of the team and excellent backcourt men, junior Joe Sutka, 6-4 center who was sec- ond high scorer during the 1952-53 campaign, and sophomore Jerry Snover, a high-jumping, aggressive type of player. Nine others played var- sity roles throughout the season including senior Bob Tighe, juniors Mort Silver, and Ted Reinhard, and sophomores Dave Ritter, Ed Crotty, Ed Bower, Tom Manzi, Roy Elliott, and Walt Wallace. Bill Constantakes, Frank Parisi, Marv Zepf, Ed Picken and Bruce Gidley also saw action with the squad before leaving for various reasons.

Lacking height and scoring punch the Dutchmen failed to notch a win in twelve outings at this writing. Opening against a tall, experienced Williams club, the Union five got off to a bad start with a 77-49 defeat. A seven-point loss to Middle- bury and a defeat at the hand of Vermont followed. Joe Sutka, scored 20 points against Middlebury, and Jerry Barandes turned in excellent floor games to highlight early season play. The Dutchmen showed plenty of scrap but to little avail as Hartwick, Hobart, RPl's Quimby, 125i grabs a rebound in the season's closing contest with the Cherry and White. It was the Garnefs 15th straight loss. Jae Sutka's attempt for a deucer is blocked by three Albany Statemen. CHRISTIE is just a step behind as an opponent lays one in for two points. and Hofstra administered defeats. The tests brought out a bright spot through all the gloom, however, as sophomore Ed Crotty developed into a scoring threat. Hitting for 19 and 241 points in two games during this spell the six-foot-sophomore came up with a pair of the best individual efforts of the season. Hamilton, Amherst, R.P.l., Stevens Tech, and Brooklyn Poly blazed past the Garnet up to the time of this writing and only four opponents re- mained. Union fans hoped that the Dutchmen would turn the tide in return meetings with Ham- ilton and R.P.I. and in battles with Albany State Teachers. SUTKA Lghts for a rebound.

As the Union College swimming team goes into the final stretch of its 1953-54 season, decisive victories over Fordham, McGill and Hamilton help to offset smarting defeats at the hands of Williams, Union's Nemesis, and N.Y.U. The mermen are favored to win their three remaining meets with Rochester, M.I.T., and R.P.I. and hope to com- plete their schedule with a 6-2 record. wi ,. 'ia' ' 6 -1 u ..A.a we WIMMING Opening at Williams, the Garnet, as usual, were the victims of the powerful New England champs, 54-30. All-American breast-stroker Doug- las and distance-man Bear starred for the Ephmen with wins in their events while Union's sprinters, O'Neil and Bartner, bounced back with first places in the 50 and 100 yd. freestyle respectively. Coach Ray Mullane was hampered by the loss of five star performers: Reiners, Metzger, Dorse and Stark who graduated in '53 and Dave Fennekohl, a transfer to the University of Texas. With fresh- men ineligible and no new talent available, Mul- lane molded his team around veterans Hartmann, Sherwood, Bird, Land and sophomores O'Neil. Kim, Bartner, Huse and Fabricant. Union lost a heartbreaking thriller to N.Y.U. at Foote Pool on December 12. The Violets led only slightly as their star Don Matejka flashed through his paces by winning the 220 and 100 yd. freestyle and placing second in the 4-40 yd. free- style event. The term "Flying Dutch- men" might very well ft this group of Union mer- RAY MULLANE makes with some serious "Time talk" to GUY COOPER, DICK LAND and ART FABRICANT. Sophomore BOB KIM provided Union strength in the breast- stroke division. men. The score was kept within a five point spread by Sven Hartmann's win in the 150 yd. individual medley, Jay 0'Neil's first place in the 50 yd. free- style and Rupe Huseis triumph in the 44-0 yd. freestyle. With the score at 41-36, the seven points going to the winner of the final relay event would decide the meet. The Union team of 0'Neil, Bartner, Fabricant and Hartmann sprung to an early lead but the N.Y.U. quartet crept from behind to eke out a Violet victory, 448-36. Hamilton Collegeis swimmers were swamped two days later 66-13 at a home meet and as the score might indicate, Union swam away with all but one Hrst place. ,Li i891 ART O'NEILL and NORM BARTNER were mainstays of the Garnet's relay teams. ART O'NEILL, NORM BART- NER and RUPE HUSE, three of Ray Mullane's most import- ant swimmers are shown during one of their nightly practice ses- sions. On the weekend of Feb. 12, after a month layoff, the Garnet posted two impressive victories over formidable Fordham and McGill, Canadian National Champions. Outstanding performers in the 53-31 win over McGill were Kim, Hartmann and O'Neil. Kim amassed 13 points by swimming in the winning relay, scoring first in the 200 yd. breastroke and placing second in the 150 yd. in- dividual medley. Hartmann and O'Neill both turned in two first places for ten points each, while Cook, McGill's Olympic swimmer, won the 220 and 44-0 yd. freestyle events. The next afternoon Kim was again high scorer and instrumental in the 50-34 Fordham defeat when he won the individual medley, 200 yd. breast- stroke and swam the breaststroke leg of the win- ning medley relay. More Union firsts were contrib- uted by Bird in the backstroke and O'Neil in the 100 yd. freestyle. Few names have exchanged places on the Record Board this season compared to last year when record shattering was commonplace to al- most every meet. John Sherwood, a junior from Queens, replaced Phil Metzger's 67.6 point diving record with his 70.4 effort in the McGill meet. With most of the season gone, ,lay O'Neil's free- style records made in his freshman year remain un- touched. ,IOHN SHERWOOD displays form that enabled him to set a new diving record for Foote Pool of 70.4 points. E901 Intramurals The intramural contests are one of the most popular features on Union's athletic agenda. Spirit at these intramural games compares favorably with that exercised at the varsity functions. The purpose of the Intramural Program is to give those men who are not participating in varsity sports a chance to gain some recreation and exer- cise. In a move to strengthen intramurals even more, head Baseball Coach Arthur Lawrence was officially named Director of Intramural Athletics, a position he has held unofficially for nearly twenty years. In the fall, Library Field is the scene of bruis- ing touch football contests. This year Delta Up- silon, Sigma Chi, and Phi Sigma Delta fielded the top squads. The DU's came up with one of the best drilled intramural teams seen in years and scored an unprecendented 108 points to their opponent's 6. The championship game between DU and Sigma Chi was won by the DU's 28-0. l Intramural tennis saw three houses in heated competition for the cup. Kappa Nu, Delta Upsilon and Psi P. each turned out excellent squads. In the Hnals, KN beat DU in two single matches. Abby Gold whipped Bill Hall 6-2 and 6-1 as Pete Kahn squeaked by ,lim Hoffman, 7-5, 5-7 and 6-4. Volleyball and basketball are still in progress at this writing. In basketball, DU leads the Eastern League with a four and one record, with Chi Psi and Alpha Delt close behind. The Western loop is led by Phi Delta Theta and Sigma Chi while Delta Phi has a comfortable lead in the Northern League. In volleyball Delta Chi and Kappa Alpha lead the American League, Beta Theta Pi tops the Na- tional and in the United League there is a close tussle between DU and Delta Phi.

The 1953 infield remained intact from the previous season except for freshman Jack Drescher, who replaced Dick Munroe at second base. Bill Bloomfield played first, Jim Waters short, Paul Meader third, and Dick Henry caught. The outfield had letterman Gene Schwartz- man in center, Hobie DuPuyt in right and fresh- man George Wodarzak in left. An able mound staff composed of Jim Carrigg, Dick Grinnell, Jim Hogan and Bill Booth was reason for optimisim during pre-season workouts. Travelling to Rochester for the season's opener, Jim Carrigg started for the Garnet and pitched eight innings of no-hit, no-run ball. A single in the ninth with one down spoiled his bid for a perfect game. 1lliA5l?f"rk1'! 91'H4l'fkI!-Nui. - 'Bl , ll . if-Efiiargrfs-'W.!'1lg W 'ffxv ' ,f . 1 wx.

GENE SCHWARTZMAN and first baseman BILL BLOOMFIELD show how to lay one down. The next afternoon saw Union on the short end of a 9-4 decision to Hobart, due mainly to errors and ineffective pitching. Playing Stevens on Alexander field, Union secured its second win by a 2-1 count, as Carrigg pitched four-hit ball. Union's next start against Williams was a twelve-inning marathon that saw both starting pit- chers go the entire route. Williams outlasted the Dutchmen however, and scored two runs in the twelfth frame to win 6-4. Union then embarked on a four game win- streak and downed R.P.I., Middlebury, Rochester and Hamilton in that order. The Garnet wins featured good pitching. R.P.I. playing on its own field handed Union a lopsided 13-3 drubbing in a game that saw the Dutchmen employ three hurlers in an attempt to stop the tide. Regaining its winning ways Union slammed out seven runs in the first inning and went on to trounce an outclassed Hamilton squad 12-3. Al- bany State was host to Union in the season's finale as the Garnet squeaked out a 4--3 decision. x"U. ,,. 595 E941 TR The 1953 Garnet track squad, coached by mentor Bill Ketz, swept through the 1953 season without a loss in dual meet competition, the second time in two years for the ultra-successful speedsters. Featured over the course of the year, was the vic- tory in the triangular meet with Williams and Mid- dlebury, and the winning of the title as the New York State small college champions. By far, the track squad was the most success- ful of the spring sports and risked its unblemished record against some of the top teams. It might certainly rank as the best Union team of the 1952- 53 school year. Coach Ketz had depth, speed, and versatility-great concomitants for success. CK 19 Bob Murray paced the team with a six-meet point total of 591f4- points, averaging nearly 10 points per meet. Not far behind him was distance star Dick Dolan, who racked up 55 points in the same competition. Trailing the two leaders were Ed 0'Meally in the weights, Frank Kiwus in the dashes, and Dale Christie in the quarter mile and the broad jump. Looking back over the season, we can see now that Bill Ketz could count on any one of these men for at least one first place in any given meet. In a college sports year that was character- ized by a lack of exceptional material, the track team stood alone. WM. Captain BOB MURRAY was Garnet's repre- sentative in the low and high hurdle events. Consistent point getter and steady performer was ED 0'MEALLY, Union shot putter. g,,,- A Af., vu an sun - any lin' ' A D air- VW l B W 1 . 3 'sr ,NN 1 Front Row, left to right: Frank Kiwus, Len Klingberg, George Batkiewicz, Ed O'Meally, Bob Murray, Cari Clough, Dick Dolan, Bob Meyer.

Third Row: Coach Bill Ketz Don Stack, Phil DuBois, Bill Morris, Dale Christie, Ed Murphy, and Wes LeMauserier. Other members of the team showed well in competition. Len Klingberg, ace pole vaulter, was inactivated due to a knee injury midway through the season and couldn't compete regularly. Before that injury, however, Klingberg had scored three than not. Eliot Schechter and Cari Clough ran right behind Dolan, and Alan MacKinnon in the half-mile was with the leaders in most of the compe- tition. Terry Goff in the high jump, placed first ix every time out and Don Stack in the two mile, after a slow start, began pulling out the wins in the latter part of the season. None of the meets were really close as the i Ketzmen romped through competition. Williams came the closest, losing by 10 points if we figure dual meet scores.

CRUSS Greatly handicapped by the lack of depth in the midfield positions, the punching power of a lacrosse team, the Union varsity lacrosse team finished an eight game season with only two wins to their credit. But the win-lost column does not tell the complete story. Bucking a schedule of highly ranked teams in the East, the Garnet under- dogs showed steady improvement as the season progressed and developed into a closely-knit de- fensive team. The two standouts from the previous season, Bill Snyder, '53, and Bill Hall, '54, were again the scoring combination for the aggressive Garnet squad. Other standouts were Larry Brettschneider, '55, Dick Havill, '55, and Ben Thelin, '53, at the attack, Al DeSantis, '54, Ross Saddlemire, '54, and Bill Rudolph, '55, at midfield, and Jess Dickson, '55, Jerry Ryan, '54-, and Jack Stroud, '53, at defense, and Jerry Heinzman, '53, goalie. Record-wise, the team lost to Hofstra, Wil- 1953 liams, R.P.I., Hobart, Stevens, and Dartmouth. Its two wins were successively over Middlebury and Hamilton. Co-captains for the season were Bill Snyder and Ben Thelin. The coach was Ray Mul- lane, assisted by Frank "Skip" Eccles. Co-Captain BILL SNYDER, always a scoring threat, received honorable mention for All- American honors. .nfl 591 1 . ,,p.f'-nan , . , fl , 5 a f 1 up g J g,maag2"arr . ymm If il, it I J 981 Left to right' R Rubin J Hoffman D Zen R S Frost, E' Lee: ' ' ' v - SCF- . colt. Missing from picture: S. Muller, W. Golf 19 3 The Golf Team found itself seriously de- pleted by graduation last spring. With five of their first six men thus gone, Captain Warren Frost and Dr. Clare Graves, the coach, were faced with a major rebuilding task. Prospects for the team began practice at the Edison Club as soon as the snow had melted. With Warren Frost, ,lim Hoffman, and Dick Rubin form- ing the nucleus of the team, the season began. Dr. Graves stayed with the same alignment throughout the season. The positions were: Cap- tain Frost, first man, Jim Hoffman, second, Dick Rubin, third, Steve Muller, fourth, Ed Lee, fifth, and Bob Scott, sixth. Frost led the team with a very impressive 6-1 record. He played brilliant golf and lost only to Colgate, a perennial plague to Union golf teams. Captain-elect ,lim Hoffman had a 5-2 record which is a good indication of what can he expected from him next year. Match play proved to be too much of an exper- ience test for most of the new team members, and as a result the squad lost four 5-4 decisions. The team is looking forward to next season with great anticipation, since only Captain Warren Frost will be missing from the starting six. The new members of the team have one year of match play experience behind them and should prove to be more difficult competition to their opponents next spring. The schedule for next year will be the same with the exception of Hobart who replaces Colgate. Otherwise the opposition remains: R.P.I. and Ham- ilton, 2 matchesg Rochester, Vermont, and Middle- bury, 1 match. Front Row, left lo right: M. Silver, J. Guerra, P. Kahn, W. Mohrman.

Tennis 19 3 With the return of only three lettermen, the Union College Tennis Team opened the '53 cam- paign visibly lacking experienced players. This became more evident as the season progressed and the deficiency in depth began to tell. Under the coaching of Pete Nistad, the netmen fought closely contested matches with Vermont, Middlebury, R. P.I., Hamilton and Stevens, but ended the cam- paign with an 0-8 record. Seeing action during the season were: Paul Whitman, Morty Silver, .loc Guerra, Bill Mohrman, Dick Propp, Jim Groff, Bob Penny, Pete Kahn, and Dick Lewis. Whitman and Guerra were elected co-captains for the ,53 season and Silver and Whitman will co-captain the team in '54, The appointment of John Bradbury to succeed Nistad as coach has already been characterized by several innovations. Under his auspices a Fall Tennis Tournament was held for which a trophy was offered by President Davidson. The winner of this competition, the purpose-of which is to preview the prospects for the following spring, was Morty Silver and the runner-up Ed Wium. Wium is one of the exchange students Bradbury hopes will strengthen the team in '54-. The Tennis Pro- gram will also be expanded by the inauguration of a freshman team. This should serve as a source of talent in the future. In addition to this the loss of only one member of last year's team leaves the Dutchmen in anticipation of a successful year in '54-. f99 Union's ROTC cadets have a chance to go on flights during All ready to climb aboard Check those parachutes the school year. .
