lt is to the men and women of the city of Akron who have contributed to the
Akron University Building Fund that the 1954 issue of the Tel-Buch is respectfully
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
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. I

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
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-

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.

A sympathetic smile makes any problem seem

ticed when a student approaches the Dean of
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.

The College of Business Administration is the youngest di-
vision of the University of Akron. 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.
Students receive a liberal education as they specialize
in the field of business. A program of this type eltects a
balance between a good liberal education and the spe-
cialized training which is so necessary to the student once he
is in his chosen profession.
New as it is, this college is undertaking the vital task of
providing qualified and experienced leaders for the world
of business. ln addition to its regular academic courses, the
college keeps its students in close Contact with recent de-
velopments in all phases of business affairs.

The purpose of the College of Education is to
provide competent teachers for the youth of this
modern age. ln order to fulfill this purpose, this
college uses the facilities of the other colleges of
the University and of Spicer School.
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.

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-

The foundation of Akron University still bears the name
"Buchtel College of Liberal Arts." 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.

The pinnacle of college days is reached in the senior
year. 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
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.

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.
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.
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.
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."
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
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

The evening session is that division of the University which
exists to serve the community with late afternoon and eve-
ning classes, on and off the campus. 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

"Years Ago," a three-act drama by Ruth Gordon,was the first evening
session play to be presented this year.
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.

Our school program is set up in such a way that each
student is presented with the opportunity of ioining any
of a number of school organizations. 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

Once a year the Tel-Buch is distributed to the students of
the University. ln its pages is the record of the year's hap-
penings on the campus of the University of Akron. The sole
purpose of the annual is to preserve in pictorial form the
events that take place on the Hilltop.
lt is the hope that this year's edition of the Tel-Buch will
meet with the approval of the student body. Much time,
energy, and hard work has gone into the many pages of
this yearbook in order to make it meet the standards set by
the students whose ideas govern this publication.

It takes a lot of practice to become perfect.
The new reading room gets good use.
"There's something about a home-town band," it's said,
and there's certainly something about the University's Blue
and Gold Marching Band that gives it a big place in campus
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 ...
"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.

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.

Down by the old mill stream. Burp!
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.

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

The University Theatre is the one group on campus responsible for the
cultural activities that come to the students at the University of Akron.
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
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

The University of Akron offers a well-rounded selec-
tion of sports activities, in addition to its regular aca-
demic curriculum, to those who enter the Hilltop's halls.
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
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
The Tel-Buch is pleased to present the University of
Akron in its sports activities.
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.

Thirty-five prospects greeted freshman coach Hal Smith at the beginning cf the football season.
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
Smith's gridders wound up with a satisfactory 2-2-O mark to hold their own for the season.
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
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.

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
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.

Making the 300 mile trek to Montgomery,
West Virginia by plane, Akron hung number four
on the line 38-32 over West Virginia Tech.
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
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
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.

Coach Russ Beichly's l953-54 basketball team be-
gan the season as defending Ohio Conference
Champions. Six out of the twenty-four squad members
were returning veterans. Four were freshman high
The returning veterans were Jim "Red" Fenton, Earl
Smithern, Mel Kiser, Elton Landahl, Jim Beck, and Don
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!

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
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.
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. Akron
lg has won four Ohio Conference Championships under Beichly's

il' BeichIy's 1944-45 edition paced by Fritz Nagy is the only Blue and Gold quintet ever to enter the charmed 20 victories
tr Seven of Akron's victories in 1951-52 were forfeited due to the unknowing use of two ineligible transfer students in the
OC indicates years in which the Zips won the Ohio Conference Championships.
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.

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 I3 base runners to rule the RBI column.
On the mound "Old Reliable" Roger Edwards controlled his way to a 4-O

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,

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.

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
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.
Results of the l953-54 Intramural Sports competi-
tion are as follows:
First place in the basketball tournament was Lamb-
da Chi Alpha fraternity. The Kangaroos, an Independ-
ent team, won the second place honors. The foul-
shooting award was given to Don Luckett.
Phi Delta Theta Fraternity won the honors in the
volleyball competition, with Phi Sigma Kappa, second.
The IM wrestlers that came out on top were those
of Phi Sigma Kappa. Second place went to Theta Chi.
First place in the singles and doubles competition
of the badminton tournament went to Phi Delta Theta.
Theta Chi placed first in the golf tourney. Phi Delta
Theta took first in the spring track meet. Second place
went to Azar's Independents.
Phi Sigma Kappa and Tau Kappa Epsilon took first
and second place respectively in the bowling.

There are sixteen Greek letter organizations on the
campus of Akron University. 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.

Phi Mu started fresh this year with a new coat of paint inside and out of the chapter house. The sorority's outstanding achieve-

After the Fall Semester began, the first big event on campus was Homecoming, the Theta Phi Alpha theme being "Cochrane
over Mt. Union." Halloween offered a good theme for the Open' House Tea and the Theta Phis feted the campus with cider
and doughnuts. Christmas vacation was the occasion of the annual Christmas party as well as the Panhellenic Formal of which
Annette Marcinkoski was chairman.
Sigma Chapter of Theta Phi Alpha was honored by a visit from Mrs. C. C. Martin, National first Vice-president.

lone star chartered 1882
Lone Star Fraternity, the oldest local fraternity in the country, celebrated its 72nd birthday during the i954 school year.
As is tradition, the nucleus of the football, basketball, and baseball teams was formed by the Stars. Men of PiKE captained
all of these teams plus the wrestling squad and track teams.
Outstanding social functions of the year include the Grecian House Party and the annual Hoity-Toity Open House Tea.
The men of Lone Star fraternity were active in all phases of campus life. Many brothers of PiKE did not restrict their talents
to the fraternity alone, but took active part in student government and varsity sports.
A first place trophy for their efforts in Casbah and the president of Student Council are iust a few of the feathers in the cap
belonging to the brothers of Lone Star fraternity.

The women of Theta Upsilon are reluctantly closing the book on another year of many activities. A year of entertaining the
oFficers ofthe various fraternities at spread was iust a small portion ofthe activities that the sorority undertook.
Founder's Day and Rainbow Dinners were the highlights of the social season. Slumber parties, picnics, dessert spreads, and
dances helped to complete the list of many activities that the girls did during the school year. '
The mantle in the chapter house is brightened by the addition ofthe winning trophy forthe May Day games and the Pan-
hellenic plaque for the greatest improvement in chapter grades.
Theta U had the privilege of having a graduate counselor stay with them. They thus became the first sorority on campus to be
allowed to live at the chapter house.

It was a clean strike for the brothers of Tau Kappa Epsilon this year when they bowled their way to the second place cham-
pionship in the IM League. To prove their versatility, they also competed in other sports in fraternity play.
Away from the sports scene, the Tekes became social-minded, and had several parties, costume affairs, and formals. Among
the year's festivities were the annual Open House and the Sweetheart Formal.
Scholastically the Tekes are rated tops. 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
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.

ZTA could have easily meant "Zeta's Terrific in Activities" during the past year as the sisters of Zeta Tau Alpha took part in
a wide range of extra-curricular affairs.
The awarding ofthe first place Scholarship Trophy with a 2.907 sorority average at Greek Night set the Zetas in the mood
to win more prizes and new members.
lt seems as though there is never a dull moment for the Zeta. Activities that kept the gals busy during the year included carol-
ing parties, alumnae teas, formals, and picnics.
The Zetas held an all-campus "Ginger" and ended the school year with a Street Dance held for the Cerebral Palsy benefit.

flower and serenade. They then continued their extensive social program with the Hobeaux Art Ball, spring and winter formals,
and several house parties.
The men of Theta Chi placed first in Homecoming Decoration and third in the fraternity division of competition for Songfest.

This year the intramural basketball team traveled to Michigan to compete in a Tri-State Theta Chi tournament. The brothers
have also had contests with their chapter at Kent in basketball, football, and softball play.

Whether an introvert or an extrovert, a senior or a
freshman, every student participates in at least a few
of the school activities and reaps the benefits of many
others. 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
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

The afternoon events included a buffet luncheon held on
the patio, and the traditional "May Pole" dance presented
by the Modern Dance Class. "Ma" Gorman as the "mystery
runner" carried a symbolic torch to open the Olympic Games
which were held in honor of the Queen.
A perfect day was climaxed with a dance at Chippewa
Lake Park. Blue Barron played his sentimental music for the
tired University students. During intermission, the trophies
were awarded, and once more Queen Marilyn was hon-
ored by her Akron University subiects.

Four years are over. The four years of work-
ing and planning finally bring their reward.
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.

The sun arose on some startling sights around the Akron U.
campus in October. 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.

The Christmas season arrived on campus with the annual
Women's League Christmas Tea. 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.

Smiles appeared and eyes shone as twenty-
five small children walked into the gaily deco-
rated student lounge during Christmas vacation.
All members of Student Council became Santa
Claus as they entertained some of the needy
children in the Akron area.
Movies, games and songs kept the children
busily entertained while Ed Boss prepared to
astonish them with his feats of magic. Finally the
big moment came when the best part of the day
arrived. Presents were distributed to each child
present at the party. The members of Student
Council found the true Christmas spirit in the old
saying, "lt's better to give than receive."
Quiet descends, and even the college students become absorbed in the movies.

happy smiles, the students made their way back to campus

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 spirit of true fraternalism rang clear as
the Greek groups on campus gathered together
on George Washington's birthday in the May-
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.

demonstration of the ideal relationship among
the fraternal groups on campus.

"Well, sure and if it isn't Engineers Day."
L it e-day
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-
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

Variety is the perfect description of the most popular assembly on campus. Any type of talent, from a magician to classical
singers, is received with a burst of applause.

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.

Every Greek group on campus holds an an-

of the teas follow some sort of theme in their
decorations. The affairs are usually held on
Wednesday or Friday, starting at two and last-

guides who explained the history and ideals of the University. E

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.

was also an honored guest at the annual luncheon given by the Akron

Good food pleases all at the Mother Daughter Banquet.
For a week the women take over the
campus. This year Women's Week, planned
and managed by the girls, was organized to
make the women better acquainted with their
campus and community.
The big day came Monday. Capable women
were elected to lead the big co-ed organiza-
tions on campus, and while the votes were being
counted, everyone relaxed at the tea dance.
Then the week was topped oft by a mother-
daughter banquet at which election results were

The lights dimmed and the curtains parted on
the first University Theatre production of the
new school year. "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.

everyone grinning as they left the Student Build-

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

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 play was full of humorous situations and will long be remembered
for its witty character studies.

Prospective queens show beauty
and then hope.
One of the busiest and most colorful events takes place when student
elections are held during the spring semester of the school year.
Posters, speeches, bulletins, and refreshment booths are just a small
portion of the many activities that take place in order to publicize a
candidate for the office of Student Council.
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-
As the evening progressed into the night, political loyalties were for-
gotten as once again the Hilltoppers ioined forces to make the Uni-
versity a better place for its many students.

1954 senior prom
The members of the Senior class celebrated the ending of their college years
with one of the "hottest" dances of the season. 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.
"Boy, it's hot," remarks Tom Burkley as he and Tony DiDinato and his date try to cool off.
"Ah! the pause that refreshes," says Bob Savoy, as Marlene McGinnis, Mr. and Mrs. Corless, and
Jean Schillinger look on.
