Akron University-1956. Physi-
cally, Akron University is a collection
of buildings representing nearly a cen-
tury, wherein resides an amazing
aggregation of machines, books, lab
equipment and all other elements of a
Akron University has as its nucleus
a tradition of learning, evidenced by its
faculty and transferred to its students.
The student spends a short four year
period and then leaves transformed by
the experience of learning.
Since the student is not just some-
thing to be acted upon, he contributes
in large measure to the University.
This book is a record of the students'
impact upon the University of Akron.
No doubt, we shall one day look back
with laughter, sentimentalism and per-
haps embarrassment over the events

The story of Kolbe Hall Theatre can only be written with all eyes and ears directed toward the
future. Construction of the theatre has given added impetus to the University Theatre, already
one of the most popular activities on campus. The campus staged a week-long initiation of the
nctvfacilities. For this initiation director Donald S. Varian chose "The Barretts of Wimpole
Streetf' The talents of Broadway success, Julie Haydon, were coupled with those of the uni-
versity players in the season's most talked-about production. This theatre also provided the
set for the frst student-produced musical comedy. A large stage, seating for 250, and pro-
fessional-type lighting are among the theatre's outstanding facilities. Well-equipped con-
struction and dressing rooms may entice prospective backstage artists. Coffee after the play
in the inviting Green Room completes the theatre charm.
Bierce Library forms the nucleus of campus
scholastic activity. The library annex, built in
1949, houses the education, periodical, science
and technology libraries. Herman Muehlstein,
well-known New York business leader, this
year endowed the library with his valuable col
lection of first editions.

Ayer Hall is the hub of engi-
neering activity on campus. In
Ayer the engineers utilize lab-
oratory and classroom facilities

ORMAN . AUBUR
President of the University
Dignity, quiet but warm and congenial, is characteristic of
Dr. Norman Paul Auburn in his Buehtel Hall office or his
Tudor brick home. As president of Akron University, Dr.
Auburn has distinguished himself as an outstanding figure
in the field of higher education. Recently he was elected
president of the Association of Urban Universities and
named to the Wllite House Committee on Higher Educa-
tion. On campus Dr. Auburn's friendly greeting and warm
smile acl as a barometer of his genuine interest in student
activities, both academic and social. In his ivy-covered
home, Dr. Auburn moves in an air of comifortable refine-
ment. Although the greater portion of President and Mrs.
Auburn's social life is keynoted by university functions,
foreign travel coupled with a recently acquired interest in
photography lead the list of his leisure activities.
The Auburns relax in their personal library.

On the Akron campus, many projects affecting
student welfare and student activity are the con-
cern of the Student Council. Thirty representa-
tives from the five colleges are elected each spring
after active political campaigns.
The yearly agenda for Council includes plan-
ning the Homecoming and May Day celebrations
and dances, rallies and migrations, and the annual
Christmas party for underprivileged children.
The Campus Night recreational programs are
also directed by a Student Council Committee.
A student affairs committee operated for the
first time this year to hear and try to adjust com-
plaints from students. Campus leaders are rec-
ognized through the Council-administrated A-Key

Student Council Elects
Student Council elections were held early in March to elect the
1956-57 Council. The election date was changed so that the new
council could "learn the ropes" from the old council members be-
fore the year was out.
Election day was one of excitement as the various candidates
and parties campaigned for last minute votes. That night, the
Student Building was crowded with anxious oltiee seekers and their
friends awaiting the verdict of who would lead the new council,
and who would fill the vacant seats. Jerry Reeves was elected
President and Bob Morrison won the Vice-Presidential race. When
the other results were tabulated and the winners announced ev-

For the first time since the twenties, Akron University was the scene of an all-student musical
show. The production was financed by ticket sales, and the proceeds from the four-night run
formed the basis of a scholarship fund for students studying for careers in the theatre.
"Love,s Here At Last" was a two-acl comedy presented in the Kolbe Hall Theatre by an
all-student cast. Written by Jim Jameson and Bob Maroon, the production featured songs by
Len Chandler. Leading parts were played by Elaine Keller, Jerry Acuff, Dawn Yvest, Chuck
Williams, John Collins, Dale Ross, Charles Maggie, Judy Ellis, and Carolyn Brown.
The action was set in u small college during the period when veterans were returning to the
Campus. The problems these older students encountered with the administration, the tradi-
tions olf the college, and the younger students formed the basis of the plot, with several roman-
tic problems adding complications.

A Tel-Buch, enjoyable long after the routine of
college is forgotten was the motivating idea at the
conception of the 1956 Tel-Buch.
The brains and manpower of the staff were
combined to assure more complete coverage of stu-
dent activities on the AU campus. Special emphasis
was given to creating freshness in the overall make
up of the Tel-Buch.
Cropping, editing, layout, writing, administra-
tion-some of them were high hurdles in the race
to deadlines. When the final proofs were checked
with meticulous care, the weary crew of Tcl-Buch
staffers, edged back into the fold of routine.
The claek of typewriters was quieted by the
satisfying knowledge of a task done only to please
tl1e student body.

feature majorettes. With this notion, the University of
Akron boasts the Zippettes. Patti Evans, Martha Giffen,
Jean Gravesmill., Harriet Harwell, and Marilyn Pallage
not only add feminine spark to the halftime scene but com-
bine adept baton twirling with clever dance routines.

RCI-II G BAN
What could be more colorful than a big Marching Band? The blue
and gold of the Akron Zip Band has become an important sight at
football games and pep rallies. Due largely to the effort of Darrel
"Red" Witters the band is a leading factor in campus spirit. Mem-
bers of the group admit that the intricate formations performed at
games are possible only as a result of the hours of hard work the
members spend to achieve perfection.

When the engineers plan E Day, it usually turns out to be a
"real brawl." The slide rule brigade spend weeks jealously
hatching their chin whiskers in anticipation of March 17. The
hirsute crew, armed with Buehtclitcs in green ink, sally forth
from the depths of Ayer Hall with mayhem in mind.
The quiet spring day is transformed into a realistic miniature
of Bastille day as the Aycrites flood the campus. Any unfortu-
nate Arts student who is imprudent enough to show his face is
seized and disappears from the college scene for the day. He
returns a few months later with wild eyes and white hair.
Alfter disposing of interlopcrs, thc engineers settle down to
serious business for the rest of the day. This includes such ac-
tivities as 'Ubaeeer chawin' an spittin', beard measuring, dis-
rupting classes and presenting skits in the student lounge.

The last University Theatre production of the year was "Dial NI for Murder,"
and starred Chuck Maggie, Carol Parker, and Paul Worron. Supporting roles
included John Collins a11d J im Monahan.
The plot concerned a plan devised by a husband Cworronj who schemed to
have his wife CMiss Parkerj killed by an old schoolmate CMaggioj. The hus-
band used blackmail to convince the schoolmate to perform the deed, as well
as a share of the wife's inheritance. The plan backfired and the wrong person
was killed. A weak link in the testimonies was discovered by the police inspec-
tor CCollinsQ with the aid of the wife's former lover CMonahanj.

THE E O TORY
The 1956 football edition of Akron University turned in
six victories in eight starts for the best season record by
a Zip team since 1937.
Coach Joe lVIclVIullen's charges open the season at
Springfield against the Tigers of Wittenberg. The Hill-
toppcrs dumped the Tigers 21-7. The Zips gave up a first
quarter score but came back to add touchdowns of their
own in each of the last three stanzas for a victory. Touch-
clowns were scored by Tom Boggs, Gene White, and Paul
The Zips returned to the Rubber Bowl with their first
home game against Muskingum. The home opener again
was sponsored by the Acme stores. A new Acme-Zip record
was established when 25,103 fans turned out for the game.
Although the Zips got oll' to an early lead on an 80 yard
touchdown run by Ben Kimbrough, the Muskies went on
to a 19-7 win. Muskingum later was crowned Ohio Con-

the Otters. Eleven Zips shared in the scoring.
MOUNT UNION 0
It was a dark, dreary., and rainy evening when 'the Zips
faced their next opponent, Mt. Union at the Rubber Bowl.
The Zips continued 'their winning ways by shutting out
the Raiders 311--0 at the Rubber Bowl. Akron built up a
21-0 lead at half-time and scored one touchdown in each
of the second half quarters.
AKRON 19 DENISON 7
Homecoming afternoon at the Bowl found the Zips host to
Denison University. Akron's scoreless streak was ended
in the first quarter as the Big Red got off to a fast start in
taking an early 7-0 lead.
The Zips had trouble getting started but in the third
quarter the Zip's captain, Mario Russo, blocked a Denison
punt to set up the first Zip score. The misconversion still
left Denison in the lead, but the Zips scored a second
'touchdown minutes later. Late in the fourth quarter Deni-
son drove to the Akron twenty yard line. Then John Wil-
liams, Zip winghack, performed the defensive gem of the
year as he intercepted a Denison lateral and raced 80
yards to paydirt.
AKRON 53 WOOSTER 0
In the Cowbell Trophy game, the following week at Wooster
the spectators were to sec the finest game a Zip team
has turned in since resumption of the sport after World
War II. An underdog by one touchdown the Blue and Gold
scored seven touchdowns throughout the Scots 53-6. Two
touchdowns were scored by Ben Kimbrough and Ty Cogs-
well respectively to feature the Zip power. The Zips reg-
istered 536 offensive yards which is an all-time Hilltop
AKRON 46 OBERLIN 13
lft was a hot, dry afternoon at the,Rubber Bowl as the Zips
established another record the next week while playing
host to the Yeomcn of Oberlin.
Tom Boggs passed for four touchdowns and Ty Cogswell
passed for one for a single game mark of five touchdown
passes. Senior end, George Auten, a father of a week-old
son observed Dad's Day by catching two touchdown pass-
es. Captain, Mario Russo, a guard kicked an extra point
to enter the scoring column for the first time in his career.
Despite being urged on by several thousand Akron fans
Heidelberg hung the second defeat ofthe year on the Zips
in their final game of the season at Tifhn. The undefeated
Student Princes won by a 2l-7 count in a game which was
much closer than the score indicates. Akron missing sev-
eral scoring opportunities plus Heidelberg's ability to cash
in on long runs made up the deciding factors in the contest.

John Economou gets way up in the air in the IM track meet.
During the outdoor season, IM play was focused
on 'track and softball. In the track meet, it was the
Independent team, the Buckeyes who ran away
with the meet. The Phi Delts were tops among the
fraternities, and only two points behind the Buck-
eyes. Witli several new events added this year, the
meet was a tremendous success, and a compliment
to the IM officials.
In the softball competition, it was again an in-
dependent team that copped the first place trophy.
Pameris had little difficulty in overrunning their
Toward the end of the year, the badminton
finals were completed and it was Dick Patterson
and Harold Boughton who grabbed the trophy
for Phi Delta Theta.
All in all, it was an outstanding year for intra-
murals and a real vote of thanks must go to Mike
job well done.

A ew Sport O11 The Hilltop
This spring saw the introduction of a new sport on the
Hilltop, lacrosse. Lacrosse is the "Aboriginal American
Game." It is the native game of the American Indians
and was used by 'them not only to satisfy their keen desire
for competition, but as a training school for war. As the
Indians played the game, the skill, strength, stamina,
speed, and brutality required provided an ideal 'test of the
potentialilies ol' the warrior, both young and old.
By 1870, lacrosse had become well established as a white
man's game. He codified and civilized the rules, standard-
ized the slick and the ball, and devised the goal as a means
of scoring. Since W'orld NVar lfl, its popularity has in-
creased greatly and many schools have or are considering

Pete Allison and Red Haught take a tip from coach McMullen.
Lacrosse is played by two teams of ten players each,
designated as three attack, three midfield, three defense,
and a goalie. The field is slightly larger than a football
field, and the length ol' the game is the same as that of
football: four fifteen-minute periods.
In its strategy, the game of lacrosse is more like basket-
ball than any other game. However, it has the bodily
contact of ice hockey and the open field running and dodg-
ing of football.
Playing their first year on a club status, the team lost
three exhibition games: Ohio Wesleyan 9, Akron 5g Oberlin
JV's 14, Akron Og Denison ll, Akron 3.

Although the tennis team won only one
match this year, it was only because of
various poor circumstances that they
didn't have a much better record. The fact
that the entire team is returning next year
is an indication that the boys are a young

Golf Team Posts 5-5-1 Record
Assistant football coach, Tony Laterza, took over the reins of the golf team
this year and had a very respectable debut in this position. Witli Hank
D'Avello leading the team scoring, they posted a good 5-5-1 record. The tie
match was with Ohio Weslcyfan on 'thc very first outing ofthe year. After
that, the team played hot and cold, winning every second match from there
on. One ol' the losses to Heidelberg, whom they beat in a rematch later
on in the season. The team came through with a third place in the Ohio
Conference meet. Hank D'Avello shot a 73-77 to take second medalist
honors. Jim Pier shot a 77-75 to take fifth medalist honors. Yvith these two
men returning next year, along with a couple of the others, coach Laterza
has high hopes for a very successful season in his sophomore year as golf

Dick Sappronetti shows the pole-vaulting form with which he gained a second place tie in

When Coach Tommy Evans started the season this year, he had a good crop
of prospective runners. With any luck he could have had a championship
team, but fate wouldn't allow it. When Gary Flinn pulled a muscle in prac-
tice, it started a string ol' had luck that didn't end until the last day of the
season. Bad weather was a big problem all year long and there weren't good
times posted until late in the season. John Wiener was the only consistent
winner on the team, losing only two races during the season, both times
under foul conditions. In the conference meet, lightning struck twice, Gene
White pulling a leg muscle, and Ben Kimbrough breaking a bone in his foot.
Consequently, both relay teams had to be scratched. Also Jack Sandy fell
on the last hurdle ol' the low hurdle prelims when he had a five yard lead
on the rest of the field. Wiener's two firsts and Dick Sappronetti's second
in the pole vault were the only points scored in the OC Meet, and gave
Akron a sixth place.
The SCElS0ll,5 record was 3 and 5.

Best Year Ever Enjoyed By Zips
Two one run losses spoiled the Zip baseball team's season
as the Blue and Cold won ten of twelve starts. Only Fenn
and Hiram both by 8th inning rally were able to down the
Zips. Fenn defeated the Zips 7-6, while Hiram turned the
trick by an 8-7 score.
This season the big bats of Dean Dutton, Bill Cunning-
ham, and Joe Peel made enemy hurlers wince as the trio
hit 19 base hits including eight round trippers. Dutton
won the batting title with a .409 mark to nose out Cunning-
ham in the last week by .003, Cunningham hitting A-06.
Cunningham and Dutton also lead the 'team with 18 runs
apiece and also in base on balls with 17 each. However
Peel was the long ball power, only a sophomore, ,loc hit 5
home runs to lead the team. He also was tops with 29
RBI's, a slugging percentage of .780, and second in hits
with 17. Dutton finished number eight in the Conference
in hitting, while Cunningham was a notch behind. Peel
was 11th in hitting and led the league in RB1's and home
runs. Dutton finished second in RB1's in the Conference.
In the pitching department right hander Carl Heinl and
southpaw Dave Young tied for most wins with five each.
Young supported an excellent 1.84 earn run average which
was third in the Conference.

Realizing that well-trained teachers are
vital to the life ol' the modern democratic
community, AU establislled its College of
Education in 1921. Dean H. R. Evans,
head ol' llu- College ol' Education, pointed
out that approxinlately two-thirds ofthe
teachers now serving the Akron area are
graduates of the University. The college
offers complete professional preparation
for 'teachers in all fields, as well as pre-
elinieal and professional nurses training.
The college also ol'l'ers advanced programs
for teachers in service. This program in-
eludes graduate study culminating in a
1V1.S. in education. A two-year teaching
program is also oI'l'ered.

R. D. LANDON
Dean of the College of Engineering
Among the professions open to men and
women today engineering offers unlimited
opportunities and challenges. The College
of Engineering at AU is designed to pre-
pare its students to meet both opportuni-
ties and challenges. Dean R. D. Landon
heads this college. The curriculum for the
typical engineer includes a Iive-year
undergraduate program based on broad
education in the fundamentals of civil,
electrical and mechanical engineering.
After a two year full-time study of funda-
mentals, a student chooses his specialty
and begins a three year sequence of aca-
demic studies alternated with industrial
employment. Each year leading corpora-
tions and governmental agencies offer
positions to graduating seniors.
