Envisioned with the knowledge that the hope of the future rests upon the college graduates of this and other universities, these benefactors have given generously of their time, effort, and money in order to enable the ideals of this institution to continue. Knowing that without the proper facilities, Akron University could not continue to produce the leaders of this gommunity, these people had the foresightedness to meet the challenge offered them. They provided for enlarged and modern fa- cilities suited to meet the growing needs of this expanding University. We are indeed inspired by these people who have worked so steadily and surely toward the realization of a common hope-a University worthy of Akron. The Tel-Buch is proud indeed, to be able to offer recognition to the many citizens who are helping the University attain its goal in educating the youth of Akron and the leaders of tomorrow.

X faculty Although seldom recognized or appreciated, the im- portance of the University's faculty can never be too greatly emphasized. Aside from their regular class- room duties, many teachers willingly donate much -of their time by serving in various capacities designed to aid the student. The unselfish spirit of our faculty be- comes apparent when one realizes that their only satis- faction can be the knowledge that they have better equipped their students for the future. This section is devoted to those men and women who have made the University what it is, who have helped students attain their goals, and who will be remem- bered as the guiding light of our college days. We are proud to present the University of Akron's faculty members. M36 A W f administrative faculty - The administration staff of the University of Akron is often overlooked when reflecting on college days. But without the wisdom and guidance of these hardworking officials, the functioning of this institution could not continue. The responsibility of guiding the future of the university rests in the hands of the executives who give much thought and consideration before deciding on the policies which will affect the educational oppor- tunities of the citizens of Akron. This section of the book is devoted to those directors and executives who always keep the goals and aims of the university ever before us. To these men, we owe our thanks for another year of efficient administra- tion and progress toward a university better qualified to serve its com- munity. We are proud to present the administration staff of the University of Akron. ,X Cecil A. Rogers Treasurer Rlchclfd H 5Cl1mlClf John M. Denison Ulysses S. Vance RSQISYFGF Alumni Secretary University Editor l2 The Board of Directors of the University of Akron is kept busy solving the financial diffi- culties, public relations and alumni direction of this college. This policy-making group must take into consideration every detail that will effect the growth and well-being of the University. Without the guidance of these citizens, the Uni- versity could not continue in educating the youth of this city. Every student on the Hilltop is, indeed, indebted to the work of the persons serving on the Board of Directors of the University of Akron. Without their help the aim of providing for better educational opportunities for the young men and women of Akron and the surrounding area could not be completed. We are proud to thank the Board of Directors for all they have done in making Akron University one of the finest educational institutions in the nation. Lee VR.

Financial worries, scholarship troubles, sched- ule changes, iob applications, or anything that can be solved with the professional help of our advisors, are taken care of in the offices located in Buchtel Hall. Students constantly stream in and out of these offices finding the help they need. Each member in the Dean of Students office is well-liked, and much respected by the student body for the aid they give in making the college years run smoothly. Without the advice and assistance of the counsellors in keeping every- thing functioning properly, our campus wouldn't be the pleasant place it is today. staff 11:14 an 2 1 Gordon A.

Although iust in operation since September of this year, this new college plays an important part in the development of business leaders for the modern industries located in the Akron area.

The College of Education offers professional preparation in all phases of teaching, in addition to pre-clinical and professional nurses training. In co-operation with the Akron Public School system, the students of this college receive actual "in-training" experience in both regular academic courses and specialized fields. Since these students are to handle the children of the future, attention is given to helping them develop a broad and liberal education, as well as to attain a pleasing personality and a desirable character. Through these plans, the college provides the professional teacher grad- uates necessary for the Akron area. Hialmer W. Distad Head of Dual Program Howard R.

DEAN LANDCJN collegeof The highly rated College of Engineering draws foreign students from many lands, be- sides those from every part of the United States. This college offers a five-year co-operative plan which enables the students to "learn as they earn." The engineers alternate their time be- tween class work and employment in industrial organizations. Through this plan, the students gain the experience for the handling of prob- lems of both management and labor. They de- velop maturity of iudgment by handling the everyday problems with fundamentals learned in the classroom. This co-op plan is used to pro- vide basic training in the three main fields of engineering: mechanical, electrical, and civil. Since a knowledge of engineering does not provide a complete education, courses in liberal arts are required. Thus the College of Engineer- ing provides well educated and experienced graduates to fill the demands of a modern so- Ciety. o X 0 engineering r f William M.

This is the only college broken into divisions, which are the humanities, natural sci- ence, social science, and applied arts. The college's only obiective is to acquaint the students with the world in which they live and to instill the curiosity for further investigation of knowledge. Students can obtain preparation for postgraduate work in law, medicine, and dentistry, or for careers in art, music or home economics. This college develops a sense of responsibility and a re- gard for the rights of others in each of its many students. These students also learn to appreciate the things of beauty which are the basis for many happy leisure hours. Gradu- ates of the College of Liberal Arts are the well-rounded, versatile people who provide the basis of our civilization. MDX X Theodore T.

Envied and respected by the underclassmen, the senior is a symbol of the future. Having attained an ideal and worked to the completion ofa goal, the grad- uate is ready to leave the campus to solve the problems of this modern society in which we live. Each individual class member will confirm that the values found, the experience gained, and the friends made, play a great and important part in that adventure of living that lasts a lifetime. This portion of the book is devoted to the seniors, who are the hope and salvation of this country. To these men and women the four years at this University have meant more than counting credits towards a degree. They have been years of fun, of creativeness, and of erecting a good basis on which to build a better future. We are proud to present the Class of 1954, the Seniors of the University of Akron. rnavnuminw- - U-mfM1.Qwv--W-nwmww-,.,... , 4aalan13usnaa.uwm-Omen-g,v E wwrwww, , Y.

I Dean Smith Business Administration Being elected to "Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities" served to introduce Dean Smith to other cam- puses, but to those of us who have heard those cultured tones answer the phone in the student building manager's office, of which he was an assistant manager, no introduction is needed. While maintaining a 3.35 average, Dean managed to be active in Omicron Delta Kappa, the Arnold Air So- ciety, Marketing Club, Pershing Rifles and Pi Kappa Delta. He was a freshman counselor, Business Manager of the Buchtelite, varsity member of the Debate Team, chosen a Junior Rotarian, and was a member of the Casbah Com- mittee. Dean is a member of Phi Delta Theta Fraternity and an A-Key winner. Sylvia Shockley Liberal Arts Sy Shockley is one of the most versatile personalities on campus, excelling in scholarship as well as activities. A 3.41 average, four Pixley Scholarships in speech and the Robert Kaase Memorial Scholarship attest to the former. Her ac- tivities include President of Pierian, election to "Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities," vice-president of Delta Gamma sorority, treasurer of Women's League, mem- ber of University Theatre and two years on the Tel-Buch staff. Being a speech major, Sy proved her interest in Radio Workshop by being the Engineer and Continuity Director. She was a freshman counselor and is a proud possessor of one of those coveted A-Keys. ln addition to all this, Sy finds time for Newman Club, Secretarial Science Club, Y.W.C.A. and Le Cercle Francais. annals -'Hail' Neal Collins Education The need for teachers at the present time will be greatly alleviated by the appearance of Neal Collins, education maior. His personality and friendliness are certain to arouse interest in the history field from his students. Speaking "schol- arly-wise," Neal attained a 3.97 average while belonging to such organizations as F.T.A. of which he is past president, Chi Sigma Nu fraternity, and the Y.M.C.A. Honoraries which include Phi Eta Sigma, Kappa Delta Pi and Phi Alpha Theta. His grades and activities were such as to warrant Neal an A-Key and initiation into Omicron Delta Kappa, men's na- tional activity honorary. Bob Savoy Engineering The outstanding senior from the College of Engineering is Robert Phillip Savoy. Bob is vice-president of ODK, A-Key winner, secretary of Sigma Tau, and a member of Phi Delta Theta. Known for his swimming and diving abilities, Bob was named the Ohio Conference and National Junior A.A.U. diving champion, in addition to belonging to the All- American N.C.A.A. swimming team. He now has a 3.4 ac- cumulative average for 4V2 years of the five-year Engineer- ing Course, which is the highest in the Electrical Engineering Department. On campus, Savoy is president of the Senior Class, vice-president of the YMCA, and member of Student Council. Perhaps Bob is best known as the chairman of the group which picked the Kangaroo as the University's official mascot. Bob Savoy is indeed an "outstanding senior." 0 1 ww i"f,l!'fK'h military training The Army and Air Force ROTC program affects nearly every man enrolled at the University. The four- year course is offered to train future officers for the military services. The first two-year program is a basic course, and the incoming cadets are given their books and uniforms. The last two years is the period for advanced courses, and the cadets receive not only their books and uni- forms but also reimbursement of 90 cents a day. The primary purpose of these groups is to develop capable military leaders among college students and to promote and foster a better understanding between students and the ROTC. To further the purpose, mission, tradition and concept of the United States Military Serv- ice as a means of national defense, American citizen- ship, and to create a closer and more efficient relation- ship among the cadets is the goal of the ROTC program. We are proud to present the many members of the Reserve Officers' Training Corps of the University of Akron. summer camp fori meade md J' , 4.

The top moment in the career of a ROTC stu- dent on the University of Akron campus comes when commissioning day rolls around. lt is then that the top advanced cadets assemble in the presence of Army and--Air Force olticials and the president of the University to receive "C0"9'0'UlU'l0"S0"d 9005 luck-" their second lieutenant bars. Sweethearts, sis- ters, or mothers are given the honor of pinning on the gold bars. President Auburn looks on with approval as Colonel Hugins con- gratulates the new officers.

Watching the great stream of students, young and old, climb the Hilltop, night after night, fair or stormy weather, year after year, is a living inspiration to greater deeds. This section of the yearbook is devoted to the taxpayers of the city of Akron who made this service possible, to the far-seeing university administration which created this di- vision, and to the faculty whose zeal has kept the service alive and growing. It is gratifying to note the many night school students who come to take advantage of furthering their education.

The production had the appeal of a real life success story because, although the play only covered the teenage years of the author when she was trying to break away from her staid parents and seek theatrical Iaurels in the big city, the audience knew that ultimately she did become a successful actress. The title role went to Patty Carol Vaught, a veteran Evening Session Theatre performer. Joanne Rigdon was cast as the mother, while William K. Taft played the part of the father. The production was under the capable direction of Bill Van Nostran, Theatre manager. fur 76 , The lotze twins initiated smiles by using their own smiles. llackie book reigned supreme over all evening beauties. n I n g n a d e 5 , G f f i D Jackie is presented with a lovely bouquet, symbol of her realm.

These organiza- tions may be the professional clubs which will be of help when entering the businessvworldp or the club may be of the type which gathers a group of people together in order to promote good clean fun. This section of the book is devoted to the many or- ganizations which play such an important part in the extracurricular activities of each student on the Hilltop. One may readily see why belonging to any one of the organizations on campus is not merely an enioyable means of passing time, but also a definite step toward the achievement of higher standards of Christian char- acter. We are pleased to present the students of Akron Uni- versity in the many organizations of which they are proud members. student council Student Council, the governing body of the University of Akron, has its members chosen by the student body, so it is a representative group. Comprised of many committees, among which are the A-Key, Who's Who, Assembly, Dance, May Day, and Elections, Council is kept con- stantly busy throughout the year. This year, President Alec Thomson and his Council members have brought about many changes and improvements. For the first time, Student Council had complete charge of Home- coming. A mascot, the kangaroo, was chosen from among three drawings, an official blazer was adopted and a suggestion box was set up for Council. lst Row: Dick Maloyan, Treasurer, Alec Thomson, President, Pat Jenkins, Secretary. 2nd Row: Marilyn Woloch, Vice-President, Glenn Wilson, Vice-President.

No football game would be complete without half-time shows, and the band, under the direction of Professor Darrell "Rusty" Witters, works and drills in order to have a new rou- tine for each presentation. There's nothing like spirited marches and fast steppers to raise the spirit of a crowd. Although the band marched with- out a line of Zipettes this year, the shows, especially black light routines, were well received. The band, with its rendition of our Alma Mater lust before the beginning of the second half of the game, renews the Hilltoppers' pledge of loyalty. Akron is proud of its "home town band," and does not pass any opportunity to show it to the community. Any parade from Memorial Day to the Uni- versity's own May Day parade features the Blue and Gold Marching Band of Akron University. '-K .. .14--ivvwm ... concert band "Variety is the spice of life." And so, after the football season is over and marches are out of style, the band changes its appearance. The members of this organization change their uniforms for tuxes and formals as the Marching Band becomes the Concert Band. ' The classical material is practiced by the band under the direction of Professor Darrel E. Witters. Their annual spring concert was held at the Firestone Conservatory on March 23. Glenn Watson was featured soloist in Rimski-Korsakov's "Concerto for Trombone." The finale of this work is known to be a great favorite of the composer. Another high spot of the performance was the premier of "The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth." An unusual arrangement of Joseph Haydn's "Farewell Symphony" was offered. All the players left the stage except the conductor and the two first clarinets who stayed until the end. From the "Star Spangled Bannerw to Goldman's "Grand March," the concert was delightful to all the music lovers. The strings practice hard. , On the big night, practice pays off. jgwzw-1-Wiz' 'i's I university singers Enioying their first complete year at the Conservatory, the University Singers celebrated by giving bigger and better musical programs. The talented group, under the direction of Professor Virgil F. Parmon, head of the music department, blended their voices in order to make the campus ring with their music. The Christmas Assembly, the Founder's Day program, Commencement and Baccalaureate services, in addition to many special concerts, were improved and beautified by the presence of the voices belonging to the University Singers. For the individual student, it is an honor to be chosen as a member of this group. Each applicant is auditioned and carefully chosen by Mr. Parman, in order to keep the group in perfect harmony. The outstanding members of the group are honored at the annual Awards Banquet held each spring before the close of the semester. .i' .. if is E' r , i ' f 442 if . f-lj! fir 7 Down by the old mill stream. Burp! 90 university orchestra With the new conservatory as a setting for their melodious sounds, the University Symphony Orchestra, directed by Dr. Henry Smith, set forth with a season of more and better music for the public's enjoyment. Highlight of the season was a Sunday concert which featured soloists Mariorie Mackey, piano, and Maureece Davis, soprano. Miss Mackey played the Hungarian Fantasy for piano and orchestra by Liszt. Miss Davis sang "Una Voca Poca Fa" from "The Barber of Seville" by Rossini. Another Sunday concert featured the University String Orchestra. lt was the first of its kind at the University. Organ solos were featured. lt all added up to a very successful season for the orchestra. 91 I-A we V' ,f ff I 1 Q l ...Mx Reading a spot announcement over WAKR-FM, is Al Aloenes, staff announcer, who doubles as a control engineer. qf, ' X iw" if'-'A g X! 0 vw-f !

The station now broad- casts over WAKR-FM from twelve to one o'clock each day. Although basically an amateur venture, many of the staff can be considered professionals be- cause they work at the various radio and TV stations in the Akron area. Radio Workshop offers a variety of iobs and a wealth of experience to those interested in this technical field. From the writing of scripts to the final broadcasting, students plan the pro- gram of the day ever striving for something new and different to present to their listeners. Under the supervision of Mr. Neal Balanoff, Radio Workshop has grown to be a thriving station. The sentence, "WUOA is on the air!" means that the best in radio entertainment is about to be offered by the students at the Uni- versity of Akron. , ., Staff engineer Ronnie Ross is shown cueing an announcer that his microphone is now on.

The theatre seeks to bring to the University stage those plays and dra- matic presentations which appear on Broadway. The nucleus of this small but hard-working group is formed by students interested in seeing the theatre come to its own in dramatic activities. Donald S. Varian is the director of the group and under his guidance three plays a year are presented for the benefit of the students of Akron University. ln order to be a member of this select group, certain point require- ments are necessary for entrance into the society. These points can be amassed by any day student interested in some phase of theatre life. Lanny has lots of pull.

This year the Student Building was led under the capable direction of Gil Neal who worked with four assistant man- agers, and a work crew in order to keep the condition of the building in good working shape.

Those who are interested in maintaining physical action have the opportunity to participate in a number of collegiate varsity sports as well as enter the intra- mural program. A Because competition is the entering factor in each person's life, the University provides an outlet for these channels by challenging other schools in competitive play. Activities which are part of the school program include football, basketball, baseball, track, wrestling, swimming, golf, tennis, cross country, and intramural play. The symbol of the "Varsity A" is much respected by the members of the student body. Without the men to represent the college, Akron U would indeed be little known outside of its own community. The Hilltoppers are proud of the loyalty shown by the men wearing the gold "A." The Tel-Buch is pleased to present the University of Akron in its sports activities. 0 K fm- W HARRY A. "DOC" SMITH Educator . . Philosopher . . Sculptor . . Coach . . Trainer . . Harry A. Smith served the University of Akron for more than a quarter of a century. He had retired from the University faculty the summer before his death. "Doc" was 65 years old when he passed away in October. The figure of "Doc" was a well-known and beloved sight among the many persons who came in contact with the gray-haired trainer. Many an athlete will remember "Doc",for his skilled work. Thirty-five of his years were devoted to the coaching and training of athletes of the Akron area schools. ln l926, Harry A. Smith became a member of the University staff. He later ioined the College of Education faculty. At Akron U he contributed the spark for many a Zip victory. Besides physical assistance he was noted for his philosophical value. Perhaps the plaque on the wall at Buchtel Field reading, "A quitter never wins and a winner never quits,' will be best remembered because it comes closest to summing up "Doc's" attitude toward life. Because he was a combined friend and teacher, because he lived a life of service to others, because his spirit and skillful training greatly aided Zip athletes, we dedicate the l954 Tel-Buch Sports Section to the late Dr. Harry A. "Doc" Smith.

This season was the first for Smith as freshman grid coach. A l95l graduate of the University, Hal was helped greatly by Joe Mazzaferro, last year All-Ohio guard, as line coach and Glen Wilson, last year's leading Ohio Conference punter, in charge of the backfield. V The frosh lost their first game to Mount Union's freshies in a close T2-7 contest. A last minute touchdown pass overcame a 7-6 Akron lead and spelled the margin of victory for Mount Union. The yearlings obtained a sweet revenge in their next game as they gained an impressive l9-7 win over the Mount Union freshmen at Buchtel field. All three Zip scores were set up by Mount fumbles. The trip to Cleveland for the following game proved to be very profitable. The Zips gained their second victory i9-O by defeating Case Tech. Akron was led against Case by fullback Dick Patterson who racked over for two T D's and an extra point. Running up against as good a freshman team as the varsity that faced the Akron charges a week before, Hal's freshman eleven dropped a 28-O decision to the Kent State freshmen at Buchtel field. Many of Kent's "freshmen" were transfers from other schools. Smith's gridders wound up with a satisfactory 2-2-O mark to hold their own for the season. ll8 coaches The Zip gridders this year were one of the best coached groups ever to represent the Hilltop. The squad was under the watchful eye of four men. Kingpin of the group was Kenneth "Red" Cochrane, head football coach. "Red" is also the Athletic Director of the University. Assisting Red with his labors were Tommy Evans, the team Backfield coach, Andy Maluke, the line coach and Russ Beichly, helping out wherever he was most needed. The staff did an excellent iob and helped Akron come up with their first winning grid season in many years. ' V, E 1, Tommy Evans .

The perennial gridiron war cry of "This ls Ou r Year" became a reality on Akron's Hilltop this season as Coach Kenneth "Red" Cochrane guided the Zips to their first winning record since I946, and best since l938. Holding a lease on the Ohio Conference second division for the past six seasons, the '53 Hilltoppers wound up with six wins and three defeats this year, and set a new lsince l900l single season scoring record with 198 points. Up until the last two games of the season, the Zips were serious contenders for top Conference honors. The big change-over started early in Septem- ber when better than 6O candidates turned out for opening day of practice. Sixteen returning lettermen, including Angelo "Buster" Rizzo of l95l fame, bolstered by a bumper crop of local prep school products such as fullback John L. Martin and Jerry Reeves, gave Cochrane and his assistants their gridiron material. Two days before the semester began, the Zips opened at the Rubber Bowl with Findlay. A 20-point second quarter sewed up the 26-12 win and the Zips were on their way. The following weekend a brilliant passing attack centered around Rossi, combined with Rizzo's shifty footwork, netted the Hilltoppers 39 points, their best output of the season, as Wittenberg College fell 39-12 at Springfield. Muskingum College drew 8,500 to the Bowl on October 3 and the Zips were up to the occa- sion with a T3-point final frame that completed the 26-13 victory.

Better than 9,000 turned out on Homecoming Day to watch the Zips eke a one-point victory out of Mount Union. Another squeaker on October,24 at Wooster ended up as Akron's sixth consecutive win. The score was 20-18. Kent State upset the apple cart in the tradi- tional Wagon Wheel game at Kent. News of Akron's six straight hadn't reached Kent yet and the Flashes poured it on as in years past to the tune of 54-19. . Akron moved to Tiffin for game number seven. Heidelberg, which finished second in the Con- ference, shut out the Zips 26-0. Ohio Wesleyan's Battling Bishops left no room to doubt their number one berth in the Conference as they wound up an unbeaten cam- paign against the Zips 28-14 in the Rubber Bowl finale. The Akron Touchdown Club gave the out- standing back trophy to Jim "Mouse" Horrigan, a senior, and the line award to Joe "Hass" Malone, another senior. Chet Bekeleski and Marion Rossi were named to the All-Ohio Con- ference eleven by the Akron Beacon-Journal and Rossi finished in the top 25 among the na- tion's small college passers. His total of 957 yards was tops in the Conference total offense bracket. But the best indication that Akron's winning ways won't end here will be seen on the grad- uation program this June. Only six gridders will be graduated and only one has been lost to the service so far. Earl Smithern, Guard Mel Kiser, Center varsify V152 .f hu, Jim Beck, Guard -' . gig, 5, Us 1 f A a. we-'?

Six out of the twenty-four squad members were returning veterans. Four were freshman high school standouts. The returning veterans were Jim "Red" Fenton, Earl Smithern, Mel Kiser, Elton Landahl, Jim Beck, and Don Adey. The freshman basketballers were Alex Adams, Ben Averiett, Bob Denham, and Jim Wiess. Akron got off to a poor start in their efforts to repeat as Ohio Conference champs. Western Reserve's Red- cats took advantage of the Zips' defensive weakness and won although Jim Fenton scored 26 points to be Akron's high point man. Oberlin furnished the Zips with victory number one. Alex Adams was high scorer with l6 points. The Zips rolled to their second straight victory by downing Denison College. And Beichly men made it three straight Ohio Conference wins with their victory over a tall and speedy Heidelberg team. Adams col- lected l8 points for top honors. The old year ended with a couple of holiday losses to the towering teams of Westminster and the Good- year Wingfoots. The latter was billed as the City Bas- ketball Championship game. Starting off the New Year like the Zips of old, Akron downed John Carroll. On January 8th, Akron won its fourth consecutive Ohio Conference victory over Ohio Wesleyan. ln a hard fought battle at New Concord, Muskingum College halted the Zips Ohio Conference string. Big Mel Kiser proved his worth to the Zips as he combined his offensive and defensive talents with top scorer Alex Adams to knock off Otterbein College. Once again Kent proved too powerful for Akron, as the Zips were on the short end of a 84-77 game. Make it, Earl! Up, up and away.

Don't shoot, Jim--Don' l25 Exam week, known on campus as "The Pause That Depresses," had its effects on the Zips. Akron lost not only the next three contests, but also two outstanding freshman players. Marietta College, Youngstown Col- lege, and California's Santa Barbara College all beat the Zips. Another "depressing" feature of exam week was the loss of Ben Averiett and Alex Adams. With 26 points, Jim Beck led the Zips on to victory against Wittenberg College. Another loss was marked up as Wooster proved too much for Akron. Jim Fenton with l7 points led the Zip scorers in the defeat. And for the return game, Kent again beat Akron. Mount Union handed the Zips a twolpoint last minute defeat. The Raiders were in command throughout the game holding a steady three or four point lead. Weiss tied up the game with one minute 24 seconds to go. Then Mount scored two points and that was the game. TheVZips found Slippery Rock State Teachers no problem as they won easily. This was Akron's eighth win in l8 games and avenged last year's defeat at the hands of the teachers. With 25 points, Beck led Akron U to victory over Heidelberg. Even with Jim Fenton back into top scoring shape, Akron dropped its llth game of the season to Ohio University. The last quarter Zip drive failed to catch the Mid-American Conference team. lt was Jim "Red" Fenton night on Friday, March 5th, Fenton was honored for his athletic abilities and con- tributions to Akron sports. It was also victory night for the Zips. With 23 points, Fenton led the battle which ended in victory over the Case Tech team. ix Q of 'NJ' fix ,N 1 coach RUSS BEICHLY With a thirteen-season record that ranks with the best in the nation, Russel J. lRussl Beichly began his fourteenth year as Hilltop basketball coach. A graduate of Wittenburg College, class of 1926, Beichly came to the University of Akron after coaching var- sity athletics at Akron's West High School.Under his tutorage, the Cowboy varsity squads were annually among the best in Ohio. His basketball squads gained seven Akron City X S X Championships and qualified for State tourneys in five con- X 5 secutive years. ln 1932, his West High team won 19 straight 1 5 gi .1 games and the state high school basketball crown. A Since coming to Akron University from West in 1940, l 5 . Beichly has had only two losing basketball teams. His 14 Xxx season overall record shows 193 wins in 309 games.

OC indicates years in which the Zips won the Ohio Conference Championships. JIM FENTON zip cager "excellent" The reason you went home hoarse from so many Zip games and the reason you came back to Goodyear Gym the next time Akron was in town even though the season was mediocre . . . the reason sports scribes carried the record books to each game . . . in short the power behind the Blue and Gold Hoop punch was Jim "Red" Fenton. The only senior on the l953-54 club, Jim was presented with a plaque from the athletic department, scroll from the senior class, and certificate of merit from The Akron Buchte- lite, for his outstanding basketball achievements over the past three seasons. Opening his collegiate hardcourt career as a sophomore, Red ioined the exclusive "400 Club" with 4l0 points in the l95l-52 season. His 85.9 free throw percentage led the nation's small college charity chuckers that year. Up until that season only Fritz Nagy ll 944-45l and Hank Vaughn ll949-50l had eclipsed the 400 mark in a single campaign, and since then the only new club member is Mike Harkins ll 952-531. In his iunior year the slender one-hand artist ioined an even more exclusive group meshing 527 points, 20 points off Fritz Nagy's still standing single season mark. His totals led the Ohio Conference scorers. But all of Nagy's records couIdn't stave oFf the Fenton onslaught. On February 7, l953 Jim tallied 'l9 field and seven free throws for 45 points, a new University single high, while the Zips pulverized Hiram ll4-87. The ll4 team points also stands as an all-University mark. Nagy's old single game mark of 42 was made against Heidelberg in l945. For his efforts Jim was named as a Converse All-American honorable mention selection, All-Ohio second team forward by the Associated Press, and All-Ohio Conference first string forward and team captain also by the AP. This season Jim's torrid smashing pace was hampered by a shorter schedule, bad sacroiliac, and a recurring leg iniury. Nevertheless Red managed to erase Nagy's career scoring mark of i258 points and he amassed l3l0 points in 67 games. Not limiting his athletic talents to the hardcourt, Jim has been a three-season diamond standout performing around shortstop and second base.

Slide, man, slide. baseball Behind the steady play of four seniors and a bumper crop of talented first year men, Akron's Zips copped six of their seven Conference tilts for their first diamond pennant in the history of the University. ln overall play the Zips won 9 of l2. John Cistone, in his third varsity year, paced the woodmen with a .375 mark. Senior Jim Fenton, the team captain, fashioned a .359 for second place indi- vidual honors. Outstanding player on the team, however, was freshman Bobby Raynow. The portside center fielder hit collegiate hurling at a .324 clip, led the team in extra base blows with five lthree doubles, a triple, and a homerl, and drove in I3 base runners to rule the RBI column. On the mound "Old Reliable" Roger Edwards controlled his way to a 4-O won and lost total permitting only l.25 earned runs per game. Another new- comer, Pat Fenton, made up for lack of experience with an assortment of offer- ings and came up with a creditable 3-l record. Biggest improvement was Howard Kelly, who worked on his control to the point where he became the "stopper" on the club. Kelly posted a 2-l record, his only loss being a 2-l decision to Wooster, and led the staff in strikeouts with 46 in 33 innings. Much ofthe credit for Kelly's improved performance goes to workhorse catcher Jim Floto, the Zips' number one exponent of heads up baseball. lst Row: Don Alvarez, Nick Jateff, Bill Cunningham, Fred Alvarez, Bobby Raynow, John Cistone, Harold Bowden, Glen Hilbish. 2nd Row: Coach Russ Beichly, Roger Edwards, Joe Lenk, Howard Kelly, Tom Kringle, Jim Floto, Gene Mariano, Jim Fenton, Clyde Bolinger, Russ Garcia.

Two meets later the Zips poured it on Hiram College lOl V2-25V2 before a home town crowd at Jennings Field. The season's crowning touch came at Kent on May 18 as the Zips stood off a brilliant display of Flash Captain Dick Bartfay to win 85-62. Six of Evans' charges accumulated more than 50 points over nine meet course, with sophomore John Weiner leading the pack at the 93 V2 point level. Sec- ond place individual honors go to Grover Miller, most improved runner on the squad, who gained 67 points in the distance events. Miller's performance went a long way in making up the gap created by the loss of John Lovett, top point getter of '53, Hard luck pushed the Zips off their 6th place '53 pace at the 5l running of the Ohio Conference Track and Field Championships at Delaware, Ohio on May 28 and 29. A foot injury incurred by weightman John Verdon, a stumble in the hurdles by John Weiner, and a pulled thigh muscle suffered by Dick Sapro- netti, kept the Zips' total to l7 points and 7th place.

The Women's Athletic Association is the one and only organization on the campus of Akron U, which strives to provide recreational and physical activities for the women on the Hilltop. Each year the group provides opportunities for coeds to participate in such activities as badminton, archery, and volleyball. Competi- tion for the sororities takes place with such team games as basketball and bowling. A plaque is awarded to the sorority accumulating the most points for intramurals, and this year Alpha Gamma Delta was the recipient of this honor. The girls who are members of this very active group, sponsor an annual all-campus square dance in the fall of the year. During the spring semester coeds from various universities and col- leges in the surrounding area are invited to at- tend a "Play Day" on a Saturday afternoon. This year two representatives from Akron U were sent to Muskingum as delegates to the state convention. ' The executives on the board plan the seasonal activities that take place during the school year. The organization is under the capable direction of Miss Gwenn Hilbish, who is faculty advisor. ,. . ft K gli g ,.kAx...f S f' , M ,Kg i Efiw . mark ay 6 5: mia.. The slogan "Bigger and Better in I953-54" helped Mark Figetakis make this year's intramural program a huge success. Figetakis had some big shoes to fill when he took over the IM iob from last year's commissioner Jack Benson. But he filled them and in some respects improved on Benson's fine program of the previous year. A record number of teams participated in the IM basketball league this year with a total of 27 squads entered. Figetakis also started the IM competition with our rivals, Kent State University IM champs. Akron won the volleyball contest with Kent, but lost the basketball tussle by three points. Figetakis had the following goals at the beginning of the year and he seemed to have fulfilled them all. More student participation, an- nouncing the events in plenty of time, more publicity from the Buchtelite, more spectator interest, naming of All-Star teams, competent student officials, and more and better equipment. Interest on the student spectators' part seemed to have increased this year. Often more than IOO fans witnessed the cage contests this year. Figetakis developed a competent official stat? which included Clarence Azar, Glen Wilson, Mel Mann, Clyde Bolinger, and Jim Beverly. Figetakis praised the student officials for an excellent job this year. Coach Cochrane paid him a huge compliment by stating that this year's IM program was the best the University has witnessed. l34 flgetakls intramural commissioner intramurals Results of the l953-54 Intramural Sports competi- tion are as follows: First place in the basketball tournament was Lamb- da Chi Alpha fraternity.

These groups are gov- erned by Panhellenic and Inter-Fraternity Council which bring the members together in solving problems which are pertinent to the functioning of the fraternity system. Without these two organizations composed of members from all the Greek groups on campus, the fraternity system would still be many disassociated groups wandering around with the mistaken belief that each has nothing in common with the other. Each of the eight sororities and eight fraternities se- lect the members who will ioin in the ideals and prin- ciples of their organization. Before any member can be fully initiated into a society, he must first undergo a period of probation. Every Greek group works to stimu- late and encourage those who come under its influence. We are proud to present the Greek letter societies of the University of Akron. w f,w,f Qs no jfff L ,few R R ' . ,M . ,us f f 12157 N "' W ff '-Y W""w' ' ' ' 5 ,.

The limited size of the chapter however was not reflected in the proportion of the activities the men undertook. Kept busy during the year with social events and athletic competition, brothers of Alpha Epsilon Pi found time to win the trophy awarded to the fraternity with the highest scholastic average. Highlighting a successful social calendar were the annual Thanksgiving Day Breakfast, The New Year's Extravaganza, the Founder's Day Banquet, a Parisian Party, square dances, and hayrides. On the sports scene outstanding University athlete was Phil Haberman. Leading the year's parade of festivities, the active members of AEPi challenged their alumni to a fast and furious game of football.

The fraternity topped all other organizations in the grade department, and were awarded the Greek Night trophy for the highest fraternity overall average. Redecorating their fraternity house on Carroll Street, kept the brothers and pledges of Tau Kappa Epsilon busy during the first semester. Entering into such school functions as Casbah, Homecoming, and Songfest, the Tekes were constantly on the go. A trophy for third place in May Day fioat parade helped to round out the activities of this busy group. T67 Y' if zeta tau alpha . . U... lf? T . -.

The activities here at the University may be placed in two classifications: those such as dances and teas sponsored by various school organizations, and those such as our many fine assemblies which are planned by no particular group or organization. The activities, regardless of their classification, are all de- signed to promote learning, entertainment and a better school spirit through a better student body. Because every student takes time from his academic work to have fun, this section is devoted to the many activities which occur on campus to make our college years a time of lighthearted school days. We are proud to present the University of Akron in its many varied activities. l Marilyn Richter-May Queen T953 may Rain fell on the May Day ceremonies of l953, but it failed to dampen the spirits of the Hilltoppers. The Queen, blonde, blue-eyed Marilyn Richter, was crowned by another petite blonde, Sue Lotze, before the shower began, but the remaining events had to be continued under the protection of a roof. The wind took command in the parade which commenced the day's festivities. After the long ride through the down- town area, Phi Kappa Tau fraternity and Alpha Gamma Delta sorority emerged the victors. The Phi Taus had a chicken-little effect with an appropriate title of "Our Queen ls Worth Crowing For," and the Alpha Gams traveled to Sprightly figures dance round the May pole. wa- dh.

Graduation Day comes and the diplomas are awarded as a proof of success. All work, all trials, all disappointments are forgotten as only happy memories and the satis- faction of a iob well done live on. Smiles are abundant. They come from the graduates who are thrilled, but a little humble on this occasion. They come from professors reliving this day in their lives and watching the products of their endeavor. Proud smiles come from the parents who forget the sacrifices they have made and see their children as men and women. But with all this, it is a sad day too. Four years of fun are over. No matter how often the gradu- ates come back it will never be the same. An unknown future lies ahead, a future in which the graduates will assume the role of leaders, a future based on the knowledge received at the University of Akron.

Gigantic figures shocked old Sol into brilliance. lt was Homecoming Day, l953! The calendar of events started with the judging of house decorations. Traffic was held up and people strained their necks as the monsters gained attention. Prizes were awarded to Theta Chi fraternity and Delta Gamma sorority for the best efforts at fantasy. The slogan "Put Mt. Union Under Our Spell" announced the fraternity's Indian snake charmer. The DG's colored washer woman and the sudsy slogan, "We're Gonna Wash That Team Right Off of The Field," won them first place in the sorority division. Second place for the men went to Phi Delta Theta with an oversize gambler and roulette wheel with the slogan "We're Betting On Akron." The Phi Sigma Kappas took third by maintaining "Even Our Subs Could Sink The Raiders" and built a submarine to prove it! The runner-up sorority was Kappa Kappa Gamma with can-can girls stating "We Can Can Mt. Union, Can't We?" The Zeta Tau Alphas' pink elephant chortled "We're Tickled Pink Over Victory" and laughed the sorority to third place. In the afternoon, a caravan of convertibles carrying the aspirants for the Homecoming Queen's throne wended its way to the Rubber Bowl. The Zips battled their way to a l6-l5 squeaker over a stiff Mt. Union defense. The Mount Homecoming Queen was guest of honor at half time. The stands were crowded with spectators, and most of the wom- en wore huge yellow mums sold by the members of Pierian. For the end of a perfect day, an overflow crowd danced in the Mayflower Ballroom. At intermission, President Norman P. Auburn presented a shining trophy to Queen Jean McTag- gart. Patricia Pickering crowned the Hilltop's top beauty. As the orchestra played the last soft song and weary Akron U students prepared to leave, everyone agreed it was a Homecoming Day that would never be forgotten.

Refreshments were served as the seniors, iuniors, and sophomores introduced their "little sisters" to other upper classmen. A style show entertained with coed representatives participating. The styles varied from suits and formals to ieans and toreador pants for lounging. It was a good day for renewing old acquaintances, meeting new friends, and finding the latest in new fashions.

Bright green wreaths and gaily colored Christmas balls decorated the lounge and added to the holiday spirit, as guests drank eggnog and talked about the parties to be held during vacation. Santa Claus, with his hearty belly laugh and a slight de- tection of chemical aromas, passed among the guests with a twinkling eye and a bag filled with candy canes. Hostesses from each sorority added color to the scene with their gay red-ribboned rose corsages. The big moment arrived as A-Keys were presented to four women and twelve men for outstanding scholarship and ac- tivities. Proud? You bet! These sixteen students agreed that they had received their best Christmas present that day. Faculty and students alike attended the informal affair.

After all, the great Yale team had once been beaten by a little-known college called Buchtel. This was one of the outstanding recollections Dean Emeritus A. I. Spanton told the capacity crowd at the assembly. He spoke of the many wonderful days at "Old Buchtel" as his part of the Founder's Day celebration. A male quartet dressed as the students of the Gay Nineties era sang the songs loved by the students of "Old Buchtel." Ac- tors from the University Theatre hid behind beards and old suits as they dramatized the days ofthe great fire that destroyed the glorious structure that was the original Buchtel.

Phi Mu's sang their way to their fourth consecutive victory, while the Phi Delt's captured the top fraternity spot for the eighth straight year. As the first place awards were presented, you could almost hear the winners singing "We did it again." The audience, with the help of ODK honorary, sang novelty tunes while the iudges made the final deci- sions.

All the Greek members joined forces toward the improvement of the individual groups by solving their problems together in workshop sessions. The organizations all had opportunity to share their successful experiences and to try to eliminate the unsuccessful problems that confront each group. The climax of the day came when the sororities and fraternities combined forces to enioy a ban- quet inthe ballroom. Scholarship trophies for the highest fraternity average went to Tau Kappa Epsilon. Sorority honors were copped by Phi Mu. Twenty top pledges were awarded certifi- cates for their scholastic attainments. Another year has shown that the fraternities can and do work together for the betterment of the University through united efforts. Greek Nite at the University of Akron is our demonstration of the ideal relationship among the fraternal groups on campus.

Engineers Day, l954, started off with a bang-a real bang! Cap guns and water pistols added to the confusion as much as the rifles and shot guns that nearly deafened the Hilltoppers on that day set aside for St. Pat's boys. St. Pat was let out of his coffin early, cmd the green and white flag was raised amid cheers from the gallery. Clothed in green from the top of his stovepipe hat, through his "longies," even to his shoes, the patron saint directed the burning of the effigy of a Liberal Arts student. The Arters returned the insult by sneaking down the flag and raising one of their own while Dr. Sam Selby was admitted into I Tapta Keg honorary in the Student Building lounge. The Engineers retrieved their flag after a frantic search, but it had been decorated with streaks of black paint proclaiming "Liberal Arts Triumphs." The annual contests, including a beard measure, cigar smoke, and a "chew and spew," preceded a moderately quiet lunch in the cafeteria. The three sections of Engineers imechanical, electrical, and chemicall presented skits in the lounge and then holed up in the gym for a bas- ketball competition. The battered flag went with the Engineers to their brawl at Rico's where Lois Ahl was proclaimed "Best Engineered Girl" at the event. At the close of the brawl, the outlandish hats and weapons went back into green moth balls for another 364 days. if-'Q Liberal Art students aren't really much more. - can: No one takes down our Hag this year.

Any type of talent, from a magician to classical singers, is received with a burst of applause. Fred Bock and Jack Bennett acted as emcees this year.

The Lancers harmonize on "Sweet Mama." Fred Bock and George Kirkendall watch "Jack-in-the-box" Bennett. 200 The background music was supplied by the ever-popular Maloyan Combo. No matter what the act or the mood of the music, it was supplied by student talent. Even though amateurs make up the main body of the shows, professional talent is more than welcome. The Lancers brought with them the finishing professional touch of a perfect afternoon by their unusual harmonizing. Their imitations and renditions of old favorites gave them assurance of a warm welcome whenever they are in the vicinity of Akron University. "l'll be able to say, I knew him when," is a common expression after the variety shows. The talent may be amateur now, but it is entertaining and someday . . . well who knows!

The complete campus is turned over to these graduates of secondary schools who may soon tread the Hilltop's walks. A large number of displays were set up in order to explain how the various departments ofthe different colleges function. The guests were taken on tours through the many buildings on campus by college student guides who explained the history and ideals of the University. E Refreshments in the cafeteria and a variety show assembly ended the day's events. The interested visitors took home with them much literature, tired feet, and the thought of coming back to enroll at Akron University for the furtherment of their own education.

The affair is one of the biggest held by the Greek men on the campus. With Harold Nelson's sweet music, the fraternity men of Akron University had their big night. At intermission they sang college songs and were introduced to faculty advisers. Fraternity officers as well as the executives of IFC were also introduced to the large gathering. The men's dates wore no corsages when they entered the ballroom, but were soon the proud possessors of delicate Carnation favors. Nearly 200 fraternity men and their guests made the dance a success, with iust enough floor space available for each couple. It was, indeed, one of the best dances held during the school year. Even sitting out dances can be pleasant with good company. Q-HW Q 8 "Just so everyone will know we're together." Mr. Hansford, faculty advisor and Jack Koerber, I.F.C. president, welcome the guests.

"The Male Animal" by James Thurber and Elliot Nugent was a delightful sort of comedy, with enough truth written into it to make it hit home. Ames Auburn and .lack Bennett, in the starring roles, turned in very convincing performances. Fred Bock was entertaining as the boisterous, bluffing, former football star. Jim Kovach, as the old college dean, also added a great deal of humor. Dick Malayan succeeded in losing his temper quite often to fulfill his role, and Mau- reece Davis was as terrific as ever as the twit- tering dean's wife. The play was a gem of wit and humor and left everyone grinning as they left the Student Build- ing lounge. 'sw 151' "Do you mind if I dance with my wife?"

With those words, Connie Lowe opened Henrik lbsen's l9th century drama, "A DoIl's House." It was the University Theatre's second production. Connie cmd Ted Dick, as Nora and Torvald Helmer, turned in fine performances as a husband and wife who had never had a down-to- earth discussion in their whole married life. There was very little humor in this play and any gaiety that came up was hampered by the knowledge that Fred Bock, who gave a poign- ant portrayal as a close friend of the family, was dying. Director Donald S. Varian's three children were featured in the first act as the Helmer children and were the youngest Thespians ever to appear on the Hilltop stage. Dick Maloyan and Dorothy Levering were seen as two who had once been in love and who renewed that love after many years. "A Doll's House" was a play which left people with uncertain opinions and feelings of depression. Connie and Blanche welcome Dot. f 'M ,X , 4 I ,. . t 5 .I V x '. y , 4' 'Qi N Lui! . N Nfl li? x ..

All this added to the confusion and hilarity of the University Theatre's third and final play of the year, "Ring Round the Moon," by Jean Anouilh with translation by Christopher Fry. Fred Bock as twin brothers, Dot Levering as a ballet dancer and Ames Auburn as a wealthy snob, turned in performances which sparked the play to excellence. Maureece Davis, superb as usual, as the tart, wealthy and yet kindly Madame Desmortes, succeeded in setting things right in the end. Blanche Bayliss, Dave Hinebaugh, Jean Sewell, Bob Maroon and Jim Kovach were very convincing in character roles. Joyce McConnell and Ken Richards gave an exhibition of a tango in addition to their supporting roles.

This year, three political parties competed for the top positions. Each party was backed by various factions representing the sororities, fra- ternities, and independents. A hectic day of meeting nominees, receiving favors, and casting a bal- lot, finally ended in the announcement of the new officers at Honors Con- vocation.

U w mi ---, N53 f .,....1gs ' PM "W commencement This year's eighty-second Commencement exercises may go down in history as one of the most star- studded programs ever offered on the Hilltop cam- pus. Comments on the world situation and advice to graduates from such distinguished persons as General Mark Clark, former United States Far East Commander, and Dr. Raymond Walters, President of the University of Cincinnati, received wide community acclaim and public notice. Graduates sweltering in traditional heavy black robes applauded appreciatively when Dr. Walters, internationally recognized authority on college and university administration and enrollment trends, re- assured them that his commencement address would not exceed l2 minutes. Among highlights of this year's Commencement Exercises were: l. The presentation of the first degree under the aus- pices of the College of Business Administration to Gil- bert Leroy Aumiller Jr. who received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration. Dean Warren W. Leigh of the College of Business Administration presented 86 candidates for degrees from the new college which completed its first aca- demic year in June. 2. The presentation of honorary degrees to General Clark, Dr. Walters, and J. Penfield Seiberling. 3.

Literally dripping with per- spiration, the couples danced for a while and then wilted to the windows for the little relief that could be found in the evening air. Held on one of the most humid, hot days ofthe year, the dinner dance at the Akron City Club was tremendously successful. Dancing was to the music of Bob Cole's smooth orchestra. Many couples found relaxation at the pool tables but it was generally agreed that this was a fine way to end one's college years. 1 "Boy, it's hot," remarks Tom Burkley as he and Tony DiDinato and his date try to cool off. me-'53 l "Ah! the pause that refreshes," says Bob Savoy, as Marlene McGinnis, Mr. and Mrs. Corless, and Jean Schillinger look on. 224 51" s .4 X E139 I .- I-S 1. ff s VV V vV,,VV V.
