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 University. 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 recorded here.

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. 7 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. FY' iw 1 E A. 4. 3 LJ ' Q ,F ' b in r L X v 1 r" .

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. YL.-:t .LL fm I ITR TIO LESLIE P. HARDY Vice President in charge rj Finance fl, Q- ! is .X C A f .. ,--'sv' ROBERT C.

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 awards and ,Wlio's Who in American Colleges and Universities members. These three pages show the people and the projects of the 1956 Student Council. Jil: I Front row: Barbara Kesler, Secretaryg Jerry McElfresh, President: John Mil- ford, Veep.

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- eryone went home knowing the new council members would do a fine job. 1956 Council award winners Jerry Melflfresll, Retiring President, presents gavel to Jerry Reeves, President of the 1956-57 Council. 26 Work and workers produce hit play. MU IC L CO EDY 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.

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.

Organized in 1927 in Prague, Czechoslovakia, by its Founder and present Director, Nicholas Kostrukoff, the Chorus has toured all five conti- nents and has crossed the equator nineteen times in places like the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans, as well as in Sumatra and Equador. The Chorus has travelled on 107 different ocean liners and visited sixty-five different countries. The membership of the Chorus has always comprised the best of vocal talent and dancers obtainable among the White Russian emigres who fought Communism in Russia, and who may actually be considered as pioneers in the fight against Worltl Communism. Some of them fought in the ranks of the U. S. Army during World War II. The group has presented many hundreds of concerts for the U.S.O. in this country and the Far East, and has also given almost a hundred concerts for War Bond Drives and in Veteran's Hospitals.

It took a great deal of work by many persons from Dr. Auburn down 'to 'the lower class freshmen but in a combined effort from all, the Akron voters responsed with an overwhelming passing of the levy. The passing of the levy means more new buildings and better operating facilities and finances.

One can easily see how she was a perfect choice for the first Tel- Buch Queen. Possessing an innate quality of charm and proliciency in many fields. Valerie is uncertain about future plans after her college career. "Val,i' as she is known to by campus friends, is studying psychology in -the College of Liberal Arts. The nineteen-year-old sophomore beauty is a graduate from St. Vincent High School, of Akron. Valerie brightens our opening beauty pages and gives you a sample of the glamour to follow on the next four pages. Below: The Tel-Buch queen attendants, Miss Georgia Mason and Miss Jackie Seed strike a glamour pose for the photographer. Miss Mason is a freshman and a member of Alpha Gamma Delta. bliss Seed is also a freshman but is not affiliated. Introducing a new idea in beauty contests to the campus ofthe University of Akron, the Tel-Buch initiated a Yearbook queen- ship. University women were judged for beauty, poise and appearance by five judges from the professional world. Con- testants paraded for over two hours in both preliminary and final judging. A pro- fusion of bright cocktail gowns dominated the scene. Eighty girls entered the contest and in the finals only 12 remained. From these twelve, the three were chosen who best represented a sampling of campus beauty. The queen"s identity was kept secret until the May Dance at which time she and her two attendants were introduced to the student body and presented with trophies. On this and the following four pages the Tel-Buch presents a portfolio ofthe Akron University beauty queens for the 1955-56 school year. 75 HOMECOMING QUEEN 545 ectlft Cufrone The sparkle in her brown eyes and the warmth Qfl1CI' smile are the expressions af her personality.

Touch- clowns were scored by Tom Boggs, Gene White, and Paul Murphy, respectively. AKRON 7 MUSKINGUM 19 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.

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. 160 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.

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. OTHER THRILL -,F- .fi J .

In addition the team showed signs ol' brilliance when they came from a three goal deficit to tie Fenn College, 4-4 with a last half rush.

Not only did the team capture its conference crown, but it won the National Intercollegiate Tournament at Buffalo, New York. This was the fourth straight year that the Zip Rifle Team won the Lake Erie Conference Championships. The Zips took the winners trophy permanently last year when they WO11 the event for the third consecutive time. Robert McMillan led Lake Erie Conference with an indi- vidual average of 387. Jim Eberwine was a close runner-up with a 382. MfSgt. Edward P. Lucas, the coach of the riiiemen, led the team in his first year to 12 straight victories against no defeats. Captain John R. Messuri, the manager and advisor of the Rifle Team scheduled as many matches as possible with the outstand- ing teams of the Lake Erie Conference and neighboring states. The Zips, equally supported by the University of Akron and the Military Department, fared superior in all of their matches. All-American Robert McMillan, Jim Eberwine, George Tomi, and Jim Goldsmith are seniors. All four are military students and have been on the Rifle Team together for four years. These experts have accumulated 87 victories out of 88 matches for thc university over their four-year stay.

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 competition. 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. Left: It's a good baton exchange in the medley relay.

L CROSS 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 I eating H 4115.3 s UF 1, Q AKRON1 1 I lr Pete Allison and Red Haught take a tip from coach McMullen. its adoption. 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 have enough time to give the team.

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 coach.

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.

BASEB LL 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. Highlight of the season was a 16-7 decision scored over Mount Union, plus other outstanding triumphant vie- tories such as 12-2 outblast of Denison and 16-4 romp of B-W. The team was led by Coach Russ Beichly. and by team captain Jim Floto. Floto was voted most valuable player for his outstanding play and leadership offensive and defensive.

N N F. R. D. LANDON Dean of the College of Engineering COLLEGE 0 GI EERI 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. l tai. H l l X . l .fy N Y. ' 'L . 'lx , i. XE-:VN V I si x ' - V W' S ..-.
