ON the evening of October 3, 1946 the Alumni gave a banquet to the delegates of Amer-
ican and foreign universities who were attending the Centennial Celebration of the Uni-
versity of Buffalo. One of the speakers on that occasion was the Hon. John Lord O'Brian,
L.L.B., 1898. In the course of his remarks Mr. O'Brian referred to the dedicatory sentence
written on the walls of a lecture hall at the University of Heidelberg, Germany, which
had been built by American friends of that institution. The inscription read: "To the Liv-
The inscription is there no longer. It was obliterated by the Nazis shortly after they
seized power. And they were wise to erase it, for the living spirit connotes free inquiry,
freedom of thought and of expression. Where these exist no form of tyranny can feel secure.
Mr. O'Brian went on to point to this University's consistent championship of free-
dom of ideas and of the great humanitarian tradition of America, and he expressed the
hope that we shall never cease to hold as our motto that lost inscription: "To the
In the conduct of our intellectual and social lives l do not fear that we shall abandon
these principles to which our University has for so long given unstinted allegiance. They
are the warp and woof of this institution. To every member of it, student or teacher or
alumnus, they are precious.
But for every college or university the "living spirit" has an additional connotationg
not so fundamental, perhaps as that to which I have referred, but still very important.
The living spirit includes the color, the movement, that indescribable thing which we
call the atmosphere of the place. And in every institution this is peculiar.
lt is, l take it, the chief object of the Buffalonian annually to capture this phase of the
living spirit of the University of Buffalo and to record it, first for the benefit of the present
generation of students to whom the book will be a permanent reminder of one of the most
delightful and valuable periods of their lives, and second for others who come after them
and who may thus catch a glimpse of a time that has passed.
The work of each board of editors puts every member of the University in their debt.
I am happy to extend to the present editors not only my personal congratulations and
thanks, but also to convey to them a message of appreciation on behalf of all the other
members of the University from whom they not hear.

Above the beach where antlered deer have stood,
Where martyrs brought the faith, and patriot swords
Assembled oft to repel invading hordes.
Brothers, tonight we sing the chorus free,
Pledging the health of our University,
To U. of B., of U. of. B,
Our Alma Mater by the inland sea.
Before the Saxon march, the forest fell,
The Church, the School, the Shop their stories tell,
Off wind-swept beach proud ships securely ride,
Here Peace hath blest and Plenty shall abide.
Beside Lake Erie, where the daring deep,
The Cont'nent's erring child hastes to the leap,
And Crushing cliffs in youthful, eager quest,
From rock to rock leaps to his ocean rest.

DETERMINED that U.B.'s excellent tradition
of liberalism shall have a capable voice, the Argus
has consistently provided its readers with news and
opinions which have aroused discussion and debate
on the campus during the past year.
Deprived of the services of Winfield Burley, the
Argus staff under Editor Alfred Siegrist rose to the
occasion to maintain the self-imposed high stand-
ards which had been set for this newspaper.
Any Thursday or Friday afternoon the Argus
office resembles a bedlam. Out of this seeming con-
fusion the editors and staff bring an order, the net
result of which is the provocative newspaper which
greets you every Monday morning.
Standing in the background, but playing a lead-
ing part in the production of this lively journal is
Ted Wieksnar, Business and Advertising Manager
of the Argus. He's the fellow who is responsible for
the financial well-being of the Argusg that little
matter which is so vital to the life of any venture.
Comes Monday when the students and faculty
at U.B. vie with each other to get a copy of the
Argus, the editors and the staff are rewarded as they
note the interest and excitement which the arrival
of their work has created. Who can ask for more?

The University of Buffalo Band
HIS, the first year under the baton of John
Krestic, proved to be the most successful in the
band's three year history. With the spirited and
ever-patient counselling of Dean Lemon co-ordin-
ated with the tireless efforts of President Don
Mastrangelo, Bus. Mgr. Bill Everett and Secretary
Earl Scull, we opened the year with a trip to Col-
gate University for the first football game. Follow-
ing performances at all major athletic events, the
group, now a recognized academic activity, con-
centrated exclusively on rehearsals which in time
resulted in two sensational concerts with the Am-
herst Central High Sehool Band, also under the dire-
tion of Mr. Krestic. The first of these, featuring a
varied program, included the cornet work of Paul
Powell as well as the side-splitting antics of our

NEW YORK STATES greatest college
weekly" underwent more than its share of annual
upheavals during the 1948-49 school year as the
top editorial jobs changed hands with amazing
rapidity. The whirring wheels of scholastic pres-
sure forced the withdrawal of a number of the
BEE's veterans, but despite the shifts in personnel,
the increasing quality of the paper was commensu-
rate with the rise of other extracurricular activities.
The distinction of having a bearded Editor-in-
Chief was lost in the fall of '47 as Paul Flierl, who
alternated in that post over a two-year span, re-
signed from the ranks of student-journalists. He
was succeeded by Earl McHugh, former Sports
Editor and tub-thumper in the Athletic Depart-
ment, who added some rather startling notes to
the paper's editorial columns.
With Steve Sears directing the news coverage,
and Don Wiesnet serving as Sports Editor, the serv-
ice provided by the BEE expanded well beyond the
pre-war standard. Managing Editor Tom Hinckley
produced make-up work that was of truly pro-
fessional quality, while adding considerably to the
humor in the office. Copy Editor Mary Ellen Chasey
and her assistant, Dick Hainer, handled one of the
more diHicult and thankless tasks in superlative
fashion. Mike Abgott and Duke Kratzer kept the
paper in a healthy financial condition with their

EISONHEAD, the senior men's 'honorary fra-
ternity, has for tvventy-six years been the highest
honor attainable for the University of Buffalo men.
Each year the junior Prom is highlighted as the
occasion at which those men judged outstanding
in campus leadership, in devotion to the school
activities and in the promotion of school spirit,
are "tapped" for the succeeding year.
The 1948 junior Prom occasioned the "tapping"
of the largest group of men ever to attain the honor
in a single year. The members pictured are: Robert
Evans, Samuel Magistrale, Edward G. Andrews,
Stuart Hample, Robert Marshall and john Quinn.
The society which forms a guard of honor for
the Prom queen and conducts the grand march, are
identified at the Prom by their royal blue banners
and gold keys. Current officers of Bisonhead are,

WENTY-FIVE years ago a group of students
banded together to organize what was then a small
but unrecognized fraternity of athletic lettermen.
Today, in 1949, this organization is still active on

ANOTHER YEAR, another Buffalonian! For-
mer Editor Ed Andrews Cwho incidentally, is this
year working as Technical Advisorl really set up
a goal with the 1948 issue-judged as the best the
school has ever seen. But with typewriters banging,
and voices both harsh and soft echoing through the
office, the 1949 Buffalonian begins its tour of head-
aches and heartaches, laughter and tears to emerge
again as a success.
The whiplash of Editor Ray White flayed across,
the shoulders of all. Assistant Editor Steve Sears
barking commands at every fire plug, and the pro-
cess got under way. The fact that there were close
to 800 seniors, almost twice that of last year, meant
that work would be tripled. The ever-patient pho-
tographer quietly helped keep matter on a more
even keel, while Business Manager Herb Constan-
tine met each organization with a glue-laden palm.
Pictures, Writeups and copy of all kinds turned
up in the strangest places, were sorted into their
proper categories and the molding began to take
form. Whispered conferences with Advertising
Manager Ed Mehl led to intensified advances on
the advertisers, while Photography Editor Bob
Mendelsohm scurried around taking pictures of
Deans and students.
Copy Editor Muriel Maranville was heard to
issue the plaintive cry "Where in --- are my typ-
ists?", an out of the Walls crawled the termites
bearing the scraps of Art Editor Lee Ramsey's
hallowed work. Tom Hinckley the Literary Editor
was seen madly corralling his staff to get the senior
write-ups in on time, and after all was finally done
Roger Brandt found the rest of the work piled up
in the Circulation Department.
With the end of the flying fur and feathers there
emerged the 1949 Buffalonian, ready for the printer
and waiting for the students to make the final
payment, thus proving the success of the yearbook.

ERI-IAPS a brief historical sketch would be
the best introduction to the Blue Masquers of
the University of Buffalo. Blue Masquers is the
only dramatic organization on campus and is the
oldest student activities group at the University.
The first dramatic organization was founded on
the University of Buffalo campus in 1925. The name
"Blue Masquers" was adopted in 1927, and since
that date the campus dramatic activities have
been entirely in that organizationls hands. When
Norton Union was first founded, much of the precee
dent of management by constitution and directing
boards stemmed from the Blue Masquers organiza-
tion. ln 1929, an apprentice group, called "White

becoming a member of the Blue Masquers.
The tvvo latest productions of the organization
were Segall's 'Al-leaven Can Wait," and Thornton

farce and Philosophical comedy, both of which
proved successful with audiences on and' off

HE PAST has always brought gay memories to
the Camera Club, but the future always seems a bit
more inspiring. We have more equipment to work
with than we have ever had. There is the oppor-
tunity to gain much information about lighting,
modeling, cameras, and darkroom work from ex-
perienced photographers invited to our meetings.
All of us share pride in our greatest project-the
darkroom. In it we have the necessary equipment
of the modern darkroom including its "time-
savers." The darkroom is open to all members of
the Camera Club.
Our organization includes a president, vice
president, treasurer, secretary, darkroom warden,
and sergeant at arms. However, the assistance of
all members is needed for photographic criticisms,
and our discussions on the merits of certain camer-
eras, and photographic supplies. Special commit-
tees are appointed from time to time to take
charge of a meeting and plan a program.
Most of the service oEered the Camera Club is
voluntary. The Buffalonian includes many pictures
of campus activities, and would like the help of
the Camera Club to obtain its pictures. Thus far
the Camera Club has given considerable aid to the
Buffalonian regarding its pictures. For campus
activity the club has a supply of enlarging paper
to be used as it's required. The camera club is
growing, and it is indeed a worthwhile organiza-
tion for anyone who is a member.

THE ONE HUNDRED voice University Choral
Ensemble under the able direction of Mr. Wallace
Van Leir has added another page to their already
impressive and honored history at the University.
Through the years, the group has presented num-
erous programs which have been enjoyed not only
by the student body but by various outside organ-
izations as well.
A concert which was presented before the New
York State Teachers convention at Kenmore Junior
High School inaugurated the year's activity which
included several other enjoyable popular concerts
before many local groups. ,
The ever popular Home Concert and Ball pre-
sented April 22nd at Kleinhans Music Hall cli-
maxed one of the Chorus' most successful seasons.
The concert and dance, which is an annual affair,
is enthusiastically regarded by all students as a
"must" on their social calendar.
Mr. Van Leir and the entire group can well be
proud of the splendid work which they have done
to achieve the high place of prominence which they
have long striven for.

HE CREDO CLUB is the Protestant student
religious organization on campus. With a sincere
attitude of understanding, tolerance and fellowship,
it promotes discussion of important topics, relevant
to our Christian faith and heritage. These discus-
sions produce a spiritual growth and fellowship
for each member of the organization.
During the past year the Credo Club became
affiliated with the National Student Christian
Movement, an international organization of Chris-
tians on College and University Campuses. We have
also been able to send a number of representatives
to various Collegiate Christian Conferences.
Not organized solely as a discussion group, Credo

HE University of Buffalo Debating Society
began its second year of postvwar activity under
the able direction of Chairman james Tippett,
with helpful guidance and advice from the new
faculty advisor, Mr. Daniel Grey.
After a quiet first semester, marked chiefly by a
defeat of Rochester University, the debaters began
to move. Within a space of ten days in early Feb-
ruary we debated Syracuse University, University
of Pennsylvania, Hamilton College, Brockport
State, and Houghton College, some at home, some
away. The ofiicers began looking for suitable tour-
nament competition, and funds permitting, hoping
for a trip to Boston or Philadelphia in late Spring.
At least two debates with Canisius college, for
whose two victories over U.B. the preceding year,
were planned. A number of panels on contemporary
questions were also scheduled, and one, as we go to
press, has been presented before the Springville
The National lnter Collegiate Topic Q948-'49j
was "Resolved, that the Federal Government
should adopt a policy of equalizing educational
opportunity in tax supported schools by means of
annual grants." The debates for the first time be-
came familiar with Oregon style debate, which
permits crossfquestioning of participants. Two
such debates were arranged with Houghton Col-
lege, traditional rivals.
There were substantial changes in personnel dur-
ing the year. From the preceding year returned
juniors James Tippett, Hilary Bradford, Robert
Lind, while Hugh Crean of the Law School was
active. But, many new and able debaters appeared,
including some promising freshmeng Donald Far-
rell and others. Senior Marjorie Wyatt is leaving
the team, and to an old mainstay, Jerome Rosen-
thal, who is taking his talent to the Law School,
we all wish the very best of luck.
Interest in debate has been high among members,
but the membership is not unusually high. Yet few
pursuits are so intellectually stimulating and so
valuable as debate. We have had an extraordinarily
successful year, and anticipate another equally
successful. After about 1951 there may have to be

Engineering Student Council
NE OF the newest organizations on campus,
the Student Council of the School of Engineering
has been established to represent the Engineering
student body in campus affairs. Other functions of
the council are the supervision of school elections
at the Engineering school, encouragement of
student participation in scholastic activities, etc.
The Council is composed of nineteen members,
sixteen of whom are class ofhcers representing the
freshman, sophomore, junior and senior classes.
The other three are the elected representatives of
the entire Engineering School to the Norton Union
Board of Managers.
During school elections, the student council acts
as mediator, setting up election poles at the Engin-
eering school, for the convenience of Engineering
students, and then tending the ballot boxes, assur-
ing the validity of their contents.
The Student Council has also endeavored to
promote friendship among students at the Engin-
eering School. ln this task, the council has accom-
plished great success. Through parties, dances and
other social activities, which it has sponsored,
students have become better acquainted with one
another. lt has also installed a suggestion box in
the lower corridor of the Engineering school by
which students can present their views towards
improvements of present procedures at the Engin-

Early in the year a prog ram was presented, based
on the choral movement of Beethoven's beautiful
Ninth Symphony, with its theme from Schiller's
Ode to Ivy.
The biggest event of the year was the Erntefest
or Harvest Festival, to which the high school
German students as well as interested campus stu-
dents Were invited. A group of Club members,
trained by Dr. Annamarie M. Saurelancler, led the
guests in German folk dances. The collection of
food and money taken as admission to the dance
made up four boxes which were sent to German
school children. The spirit of cooperation and
friendliness which the members showed in present-
ing the dance have greatly strengthened the Club.
They discovered that folk dances are a wonderful
method of getting acquainted and have met during
the year to keep in practice.

i HE INDEPENDENTS is an organization dedi-
cated to democracy through the discouragement of
cliques and the bringing together of a diversity of
people. The membership of the lndependents Club
is drawn from non-sorority women on the campus,
thus giving an opportunity for these women to
be represented in all campus activities. One of the
main goals of the club is the establishment of a
scholarship fund by a varietv of activities, the most
prominent of which is the popular Cafe Masque
held in fall of each year.
Since it was reorganized after the war years, the
Independents has continued to grow, and with the
enthusiastic efforts ofthe members and the capable
guidance of the ofhcers, the Independents look forf
ward to bigger and better things as an active and
growing campus organization.

Lackavvanna U. of B. Club
HIS ORGANIZATION is composed of a very
cohesive body of students residing in the city of
Lackawanna, with common academic and social
interests. Since its inception in April, 1947, the
Club's activities have been wide and varied.
Funds are obtained primarily from the two an-
nual dances out of which a scholarship fund is in
the process of being established. Also, each year
the Club presents a scholastic award to the out-
standing student of the graduation class of Lacka-
wanna High School.
At intervals the club invites prominent speakers
from the University of Buffalo and from local civic
organizations to lecture on topics of current edu-
cational and political interests. Social events con-
sist of a variety of activities including a sports
program climaxed by a New Year's Eve party.
Languages are no handicap for this organization,
since it is composed of at least twenty different
nationalities-a veritable "melting-pot." This
liberalism derives from the fact that there are no
racial or religious restrictions in membership
Past activities include participation in the An-
nual Moving-Up Day Parade and helping the
Norton Union Committees, With this basis, it is
the sincere hope of the Lackawanna University of
Buffalo Club to participate in future events with
the additional aim in fostering school spirit.

HE PURPOSE of the Undergraduate Math
Club is to afford an opportunity for students whose
interests lie in the field of mathematics to meet on
a social level. The only requirement for membership
in the club is an interest in things mathematical,
At the monthly meetings, short talks are given
by one or two of the members on some topic that
interests them. ln keeping with the social purpose
of the organization, some of these talks are of a
non-serious nature. This practice keeps the club
from becoming merely another class in mathe-

AST SPRING the United States National Stu-
dent Association launched something new in the
way of student services. The Purchase Card System
enabled students to obtain a discount at various
stores on anything from a tire to a cleaning bill.
At the National Convention at Madison, Wis-
consin in August, this system was inaugurated on a
National basis known as the Buffalo Plan. Lee
Jones and Nancy Glancey are credited with the
footwork for the set-up both locally and nation-
Meyer Abgott, Robert Loewer, Virginia Ross,
and Albert Szymanski were the official delegates.
Al being elected President of the New York State
Chairman ofthe Western District, Meyer Abgott
was one of the people responsible for making such
a success of the Inter-Collegiate Dance held at
Memorial Auditorium in October.
With Virginia Ross as the UB Chairman, the
NSA has tried this year to promote the ideals of
equalized educational opportunities, more demo-
cratic student government, and better student living

HE NEWMAN CLUB of the University of
Buffalo, now in its thirteenth year, is an organiza-
tion of culture and fellowship for the Catholic
students on the campus. The club's three-fold
program of religious, intellectual, and social activ-
ities is based on the ideals that were promoted by
the eminent scholar and prelate of the Church,
John Henry Cardinal Newman. The center of the
Catholic program on the campus is Newman Hall,
15 University Avenue, which serves as an office
and residence for the Counselor to Catholic Stu-
dents, and also contains the Chapel of St. Thomas
Aquinas and a carefully-selected library of Catholic
The religious program for the Catholic students
on the campusincludes daily Mass at Newman
Hall, weekly novena services, bi-monthly Com-
munion Breakfasts, and an annual retreat. ln the
field of intellectual activities, the regular meetings
of the club bring to the campus distinguished
speakers in many fields and also noted musicians.
Alternating with the regular meetings are study
clubs for the explanation and discussion of Catholic

doctrine. Still another feature of the cultural pro-
gram is a weekly Listening Club which listens to
and discusses the great classics of music. The Club's
social program includes several dances during the
course of the school year, an "Open House" to
familiarize new students with the Catholic pro-
gram, and an annual closing dinner. A new aspect
of the social program is the Annual Ball, which is
conducted jointly with the Newman Club of
Buffalo State Teachers' College and which was
inaugurated this year.

orton Union Turntable
THROUGHOUT the first semester, the N.U.T.T.
provided transcribed music interspersed with cam-
pus news during the daily lunch periods. On the
Thursday program, Bill Everett conducted the
weekly "Know Your Records" contest, sponsored
by WILKIE'S MEN'S WEAR STORE. The lunch-
eon audience on Fridays participated for prizes
in the "Mystery Melody" show, sponsored by
HARRY BERG'S U.B. FRONTIER STATION and
m.c.'d by Ken Malick.
The second semester heralded the formal organi-
zation of the Turntable, at which time a charter
was drawn up and the organization designed after
a first-class radio station, having as its Station
Mgr. Ken Malick, Program Director: Bill Everett,
Music Director: Rog. Brandt, Chief Announcer:
Don Rosenfield and Technician: Don Hofmar.
Such activities as the Band concert, Community

under the direction or by utilizing the announcers
of the Turntable staff.
During the second semester, and in the future,
the staffs efforts will be concentrated toward a
live program over a Buffalo station and, as in the
past, the organization will lend itself unstintingly
to the activities of Norton Union.
Physical Education Majors
HE PEM CLUB is rapidly gaining prominence
on the campus from its beginning only three years
ago. Before this semester ends, the Club will prob-
ably become a member of the national professional
fraternity, Phi Epsilon Kappa.
One of the PEM'S major contributions to the
University was their assistance in building the
intra-mural sports program on the campus. We
have purchased a huge sports trophy to be awarded
to the organization which obtains the greatest
number of points in sports competition throughout
the year. The PEM trophy will be presented for
intramural supremacy at the Club's annual spring
dance held in April.

sored by the PEM Club this year for the first time,
was acclaimed as the best in many years, and gave

Radio Pla house
HE U. B. Radio Playhouse is a campus organiza-
tion the purpose of which is to give students an
opportunity to learn something about various
fields of radio-writing, acting and producing. Re-
cently the group presented a series of 4 half-hour
dramatic shows over WKBW. Entitled "A Matter
of Mind," the series was a public service feature
designed to give some facts about state mental
hospitals. Other programs, on the history of Buf-
falo, are in preparation. The playhouse has also
written and presented some comedy material on
Last year, the 2nd prize in U.B.'s Stunt Night
program was awarded to the Radio Playhouse for

took a campus poll to determine the two most
popular local radio personalities, and then had a
dinner party for the winners, Clint Buehlman and
The Radio Playhouse has its regular meetings
once a week, but the members are kept busy with

THE RETAIL CLUB has been active during the
past two semesters. Its membership body is com-
prised of active retailing students with an incessant
desire for retailing knowledge. To properly enrich
the knowledge of these students, prominent speak-
ers from local retail establishments have unselfishly
given their valuable time to enrich this knowledge.
ln addition to regular club meetings, several
parties have been held. A Tea Dance was given in
honor of new Retailing majors so that they might
become acquainted with the club and its members.
Social activities have consisted of get-togethers
following the regular monthly meetings.
The Retail Club has been very proud and happy
to, once again, entertain orphans of the Buffalo
area. At its annual Christmas party for forty chil-
dren this year, the club played Santa Claus by dis-
Climaxing the year's retailing activities, the
Retail Club gave a party as a celebration in honor
of the friendships that have been made among its

Salt and Peppers
SMARTING under the blow of the loss of Carol
Castle, one of UB's most loyal and exuberant sup-
porters, the Salt and Peppers rallied their efforts
together to line up to the example set by "mouse"
The year began with the Colgate game at Hamil-
ton-there everything happened. Muriel needed a
pin in an unmentionable place, Joan had to sit on
a pillow all thru the game, Cracker had to sew on
her letter, and Tom split his trousers, again!
Dick got married quietly last year and brought
a new supporter into the fold, Jack got his trousers
and sweater burned at that terrific rally and bon-
fire before the Bucknell game, Pat changed her
slacks right on the track, and lssie turned her ankle
during practice. Finally Lois arrived! ! ! CYea!

But all in all, it was a successful season. The
Engineers cheering section was a great boon to the
noise-makers, and despite the fact that it rained or
snowed every game, we had some of the much-
looked-forward to response from the student body.
All we ask now is-keep up the support gang,
UB is the best, so let's let 'em know about it!

is the recognized national professional society of
management people in industry, commerce, gov-
ment and education. Representing no special in-
terest, it is motivated by a selfless zeal to spread
the benefits of scientific management wherever
management is required.
Student chapters have been organized in leading
colleges and universities offering major work in
management fields. The University of Buffalo
S.A.M. student chapter was formed in the spring
of 1948 and has experienced its first successful year

group. The first officers of the organization were:
John Thornton, President, Daniel Roberts, Vice-
President, George Kuhn, Treasurer, George Giotis,
Recording Secretary, Robert Hicks, Corresponding
Secretaryg and William Suggs, Sergeant-at-arms.
Among the major activities for the past year
was, a panel discussion on "Management Educa-
tion" by five experts of the education and the

Womenis Athletic Association
HE WOMEN'S Athletic Association of the
University of Buffalo is a member of a statewide
organization. Its purpose is to encourage partici-

appreciation of the rewards that can be gained from
the activity itself as well as the friendships made.
Every girl on campus is considered to be a member
of the association, but only those participating in
the program and paying dues are eligible for
awards. The honor awards are made on a point
system basis. Both attendance at the regular
monthly meetings of the organization and partici-
pation in the sports affect the points earned by a
The program commences in the fall with a pic-
nic. Tennis is offered in the afternoons as long as
the weather permits. Included in the field hockey
schedule are games with outside schools. Volley-
ball and badminton begin in the late fall and con-
tinue until the basketball season in the spring.
Being the most popular sport, basketball receives
its greatest support from competing sorority teams,
however, non-affiliated girls are encouraged to form
teams. This year, with the opening of the swim-
ming pool, the W A A will have a special time for
membership swimming. As in all other sports,
both beginners and advanced girls are encouraged
The annual convention of the New York State
Womens Athletic Associations was held this year

The University of Buffalo ee-
Symphon Qrchestra Q 55
HE PRIMARY purpose of our organization is to perform the
world's .finest music for the students of the University. We do not
limit ourselves to the classics but include in' o.ur repertoire more
modern works as well. In this respect it is our desire to meet the
tastes ofthe students and perform those types of compositions which
they enjoy hearing. In the second place the orchestra is attempting
through its activities to raise the cultural standards of the Univer-
sity. It is regrettable that this University is lacking in interests of a
more aesthetic nature. Music and art have been sadly neglected. It is
our hope that through the stimulating effect of our orchestra, in-
terests in these fields will be awakened. Thirdly, the orchestra
offers a "haven" on campus for those who enjoy playing a musical
instrument. The orchestra belongs to the students and anyone with
any interest in music has a perfect right to sit down and perform with

the group. Our final purpose is to build up the
orchestra until it ranks with other orchestras of
Buffalo and orchestras of other colleges.
In order to reach these goals, we have secured the
services of one of the finest conductors in this area.
His name is jan Wolanack. Mr. Wolanack is a
musician of wide renown. He is a graduate of the
Warsaw Conservatory of Music and the Imperial
Conservatory of Vienna. Coming to the United
States at the request of Jan Paderewski, Mr. Wol-
anack has served as organizer of several local orch-
estras which include the Buffalo Civic, the Batavia
Civic, the Museum of Science Symphony Training,
and the Jamestown Civic. The Batavia Civic Sym-
phony has prospered under its distinguished con-
ductor, and although only in its second season, it
has accompanied such famous musicians as Mischa
Mischakoff in Concert.
Mr. Wolaneck has been here only one semester,
and already there has been marked improvement
in the group, not only musically, but in spirit as
well. The development of this spirit may be traced
directly to the spirit with which our conductor
has taken over his duties. It is amazing how this
man can draw music out of a group that previously
did little more than scratch and squeak out a few
notes. We in the orchestra are proud of our conduc-
tor and are confident that the students in general
will feel this way when they have had the oppor-
tunity to see him perform.
Thus far this year the orchestra has performed
on two occasions. We played musical interludes at
the Blue Masquer's production on December 1,
3, and 4. Although our part in the evening's enter-
tainment was small, it was well received by the
audiences each night. The critic of one of the Buf-
falo papers commented upon how skillfully Mr.
Wolanack conducted the charming musical inter-
ludes. Our next performance was on the eve of the
Christmas recess in Norton Hall. For the pleasure
of the students Mr. Wolanack led us in several
Christmas carols. In a few minutes the lobby of
Norton was filled with singing students who re-
mained for almost two hours. It certainly did the
orchestra members' hearts good to see their endea-
vor fully appreciated by the students. Naturally
we are striving to make the students interested in
music of a higher caliber, and believe we have at
least made a start by these two performances.
This semester the orchestra is planning bigger
and better things. We hope to make our debut at
the Home Concert at Kleinhan's Music Hall. At
our first rehearsal this term we will begin intensive
pre aration for this concert. It will be our first
rea opportunity to show the student body what
we can do.
There has been only one difiiculty, we have en-
countered in our efforts to develop the orchestra
an apathetic attitude on the part of most of the
students toward the group. We doubt the fact that
there are few interested in music on campus. We
believe that there are many who are interested in
music but just have not heard of the musical bene-
fits which our group offers. Onc e we have succeeded
in informing the student body of our activities, we
are confident that the development of the orchestra
at the University will be rapid. . v
In order to stimulate interest, therefore, we invite
all instrumentalists Cwith or without previous ex-
periencel who are interested in good music to
contactjoseph Davis, orchestra manager, or Harold
Wackenheim, assistant-manager. These men will
be in the Music Room of Hayes Hall at 4:30 each
Thursday, at which time regular rehearsals .take
place. Although there are openings in all sections,
we are especially interested in wood-wind and
string instrumentalists. Plans have been made for
the rental of instruments for those students who
need them. t
As an added incentive, one half hour of credit
per semester may be obtained by attending rehear-
sals. However, this should be of little consequence
to those interested in music for music's sake.
It is our hope that the students will realize that
this is their organization and deserves their atten-
tion. It has been created for their enjoyment and
cultural development. We hope that the students
will take advantage of this tremendous opportunity

Alpha Gamma Delta
ALPHA ALPHA CHAPTER, the Twenty-fifth
chapter of Altpha Gamma Delta was founded on
the campus o the University of Buffalo in 1922,
and has been active ever since.
Theipast year has been one of many activities. At
the en of school last June we enjoyed a vacation
at Evans in our summer cottage. After two weeks,
everyone found it necessary to come back to the
city or go to Canada and to work-maybe even get
some rest and sleep.
In October we held our fall initiation ceremonies.
The new members were, Mary Ellen Chassey,
Eunice Dissington, Dorothy Fila, Janet Earl, and
Rushing began the first of October. Our informal
party, with a Gay nineties theme, was held at the
"Y," in North Tonawanda. The Peter Stuyvesant
Room was the scene of our formal dinner party on
Before the Pan-Hellenic Ball, we held a cocktail
party at the home of Barbara Nadolny.
ln December, the undergraduate and alumnae
chapters gave a Christmas Party for the spastic
children at the Cerebral Palsy Clinic.
Among the outstanding Alpha Gams in our
chapter is our president, Libbie Bohlen, elected to
"Who's Who in American Universities," a mem-
ber of Cap and Gown, and a national honorary
German Society, and the president of the Pan-Hell-
enic Society of the University of Buffalo.. Others of
us who have rated honors.are Millie Bendanza, who
has an assistantship in the German Department,
Mary Ellen Chasey, who holds an assistantship
in the Classics Department, Jean MacDavid, who
has been elected to a national honorary Spanish
Fraternity, and Sonia Eskola, who is an assistant
in the Psychology Department.
This has been a successful and happy year for
Alpha Gamma Delta, and we intend to continue
in this way during all the following years by de-
veloping the utmost in cooperation and genuine

HAT A memorable year this has been for
Epsilon Chapter of Chi Omega. Marie Oliver dis!
tinguished herself by being admitted into Phi
Beta Kappa. Myra jordan was tapped for Cap and

Van Hoff, Ellen Rebman, ,Iacquelyn Koeinski,
Betsy Johnson, and Marilyn Kreinheder took the
first step by the addition of a diamond ring to their
third Finger, left hand.

LOOKING THROUGH the Theta Chi scrap-
book of 1948 brings many cheerful memories of a
busy and eventful year.
Things got off to a royal start with King Murph
and Queen Mouse and the Pink Elephantsvcour-
tesy of Lee Ramsey, Dodie Ewart and all other
enthusiastic snow sculpturesses. March brought
the Junior Prom at which Lee reigned as Queen.
Spring Fling was next on the agenda. After a
rousing cocktail party at the Mullen residence, we
all adjourned to the Trap K Field Club and danced
to the strains of Tommy Rizzo's Orchestra 'til the
wee small hours.
Everyone chartered through the Moving-Up
Day parade, but looked with pride upon Dora
Bertoglio and Dodie Ewart, attendants to the
June at last, and the Theta Chi cottage was the
scene of many an eventful day: Ginny Hartwell

HE Interfraternity Council is the coordinating
body for the 16 fraternities on campus. It is com-
posed of two representatives from each fraternity
and the faculty advisor Dr. Willard Bonner.
This year the council has attempted a very am-
bitious program of activities. The first of these
was an Interfraternity Handbook. This contained
a page for each fraternity to cover its requirements
for membership, program and other pertinent facts.
The Varsity Athletic Banquet which had been
in sore straits was adopted and promoted by the
council as a non profit venture to foster more school
The Freshman mixer to provide an opportunity
for entering nzen to meet representatives of each
fraternity, and thereby promote better general
understanding of what a fraternity is and what it
attempts to accomplish.

lpha Kappa Psi
URING THE past year, Alpha Kappa Psi re-
established itself as one of the leaders on the Uni-
versity of Buffalo campus.. An ambitious program
of professional and social activities kept the mem-
bers busy during both semesters.
To further our service to the school, Alpha Kappa
Psi proposed and sponsored the first annual Business
Administration Day on the campus, in cooperation
with the Business Administration Student Council.
Plans have been made to make this program an
annual affair under the sponsorship of theCouncil.
Further professional activities included a monthly
professional banquet with a guest speaker from
among Buffalo's leading businessmen and business
educators. We also initiated three faculty members,
Mr. Robert Berner, Mr. Nicholas Kish, and Mr.
William Owens, into the fraternity. Another phase
of the Professional program was the awarding of
the Alpha Kappa Psi Scholarship Medallion to
Mr. Phillip Lanfer. Rounding out our program,
the fraternity made bi-monthly trips through vari-
ous Buffalo industrial plants.
In order to continue our "service to the School"
program, our fraternity recognized the need for
leaders in campus affairs. Therefore we nominated
and saw elected, two fraternity brothers, John
Goergen and Albert Szymanski, to the Board of
Managers of the Student Union. In addition Broth-
ers Bauer, Bradigan, Brett, Earith, Loewer, Mead,
Rung, and Thering were elected to office in the
Business Administration School classes.
But all was not work during the past year. A
well-rounded program of social activities was car-
ried out, commencing with a trip to Hamilton,
New York, where the brothers cheered on the
Bulls in their game with the Colgate Red Raiders.
The next event on our program was the raffle of a
radio-phonograph, followed by the fall rush party,
attended by 67 prospective pledges. Seventeen were
selected to have the privilege of pledging to our
A hayride was the next social function, with the
members and their guests congregating at the farm
of Brother Shaver, for an evening of fun. Fraternity
teams also participated in all Interfraternity Coun-
cil sports events with the basketball and bowling
teams distinguishing themselves.
December saw an increase in social events with
the Norton Union Christmas Dance, which had a
good representation of Alpha Kappa Psi's, followed
by our own Fraternity Christmas Dance, attended
by the Brothers, our pledges, and friends. Alpha
Kappa Psi also took a leading part in formulating
plans for the first annual lnterfraternity Council
Sports Dinner, in honor of Block "B" winners.
After the usual mid-year lull due to examinations,
the second semester started with the initiation of
thirteen new members and the pledging of twenty
prospective members. Our annual spring raffle
was carried out with its usual Financial success. Our
softball and golf teams covered themselves with
glory in the Spring sports program of the Interfra-
ternity Council. The year was closed with our 15th
Annual Spring Dinner Dance.
Alpha Kappa Psi wishes to take this opportunity
to express congratulations to the graduating men
and women, and wishes them good luck in their

now boasts a total of twenty-nine brothers.
Alpha Phi Delta has exerted a great deal of energy
into the interfraternity athletic leagues. Besides
being a member of the Interfraternity Council, its
members actively support all campus activities
that are necessary for a true college spirit.

lpha Phi Omega
HE EPSILON SIGMA chapter of Alpha Phi
Omega Fraternity is but one of many similar chap-
ters located on various American campuses. It is
also one of the few national fraternities established
at the University of Buffalo.
Primarily organized to do service, the local
chapter has fulfilled this ideal well. The brothers
of A Phi O assisted in the Community Chest drive,
maintained a booth to sell Christmas seals, acted as
guides on Freshman Orientation Day and other
such occasions, and articipated in a Christmas
party for orphan chil ren. These are but a few of
the services we have performed and are willing to
undertake at request.
llqually balancing the playful side of the scale
are our many social events. Foremost of all is our
semi-annual closed pledge dance, which this year
was held at the Park Lane. The music was swell,
the girls lovely and the bartenders most coopera-
tive. Smokers to welcome prospective pledges,
bowling parties and a three day rollicking weekend
in the country are also found on the semester
Emphasizing the service rather than the social
aspects of fraternity life, the program of Alpha
Phi Omega Fraternity embodies four fields of ac-
tivity. They are:
Service to the student body and faculty
Service to youth and community
Service to members of the fraternity
the nation as partici ating citizens.
Service to A
We are proud to state that iscrimination in
regard to color and creed has no place in our na-
tional fraternity's policy.

Beta Phi Sigma
OUNDED in 1888 in Buffalo, Beta Phi Sigma
inaugurated the movement for Pharmacy frater-
nities throughout the United States.
The School of Pharmacy at the University of
Buffalo has watched with pride the growth and
advancement of this fine organization. Under the
guidance of Dr. H. G. Benry, Alpha chapter gained
wide recognition and has maintained this prestige
up to the present time.
ln addition to their activities around Foster Hall
which has promoted much good will and friend-
ship, Beta Phi Sigma has also sent many fine ath-
letic teams into the fray of Inter-Fraternity com-
petition. This phase of fraternity life is rather recent
with Beta Phi Sigma, but now it has become an
integrated part of their curriculum. They hear
Watching in the future as keen competition in
Beta Sigma Rho
HE 1948-49 season for Delta chapter of Beta
Sigma Rho has really been one of the most success-
ful in the chapter history. In every respect, the
Fraternity continued at the top as a dynamic and
The high spot of the year was the International
Convention of the Entire Fraternity for which
Delta acted as the host. The scene was the Hotel
Statler in late December, and there were meetings
of all sorts for the visitors. A hugely successful
ball was the climax of the convention, and a great
hit with everyone, as was the entire gathering.
In addition to this, Beta Sigma Rho held num-
erous other events during the year. These ranged
from house parties and sleigh rides, to dinner
dances. As usual also, the chapter took part in the
Founders Day program last October, and the many
new men played a part here.
On the campus also, B.S.R. has been more
active than ever, taking part in all majorfunctions
of the University. We Were the Winners of the
Inter-Fraternity N.S.A. contest last spring, and
also remained active on the campus throughout the
entire summer session with a very full program.
Beta Sig took a more active part than ever before
in all Inter-Fraternity activities, and in the Win-
ter Carnival of 1949 in which our candidates for
Fin! Row: A Gardner, L. Goldberg, I. Jacobson, E. Leighton, J.
Davis, B. Greenstein. Second Row:J. Gottfried, H. Rodenberg, R.
Snow King and Queen were the elected pair.
Scholastically also, the Fraternity retained its
extremely high position, and in addition to those
members who have been graduated, many of whom
are now in professional school, several men are now
on the campus working for advanced degrees.
Beta Sigma Rho is especially proud of the record
it has always maintained in this aspect of college
life, as it is of its record in community service as
demonstrated by our all-out efforts in support of
the U.J.A., Community Chest, S.O.S., and other
Thus we emerge from the 1948-'49 year with
greater strength than ever before, and with a fir.n
resolve to continue the spirit of progress and
achievement of the past year through all the future
ones for Beta Sigma Rho.

Beta Sigma Tau
TN MARCH of 1947 a group of men, in pursuit of
fraternal friendship banded together to form Omega
Phi Delta Fraternity. Their chief purpose in this
was to promote the advantages of fraternity life
among all races, colors, and creeds.
ln May of 1948 Omega Phi Delta enjoyed the
privilege of becoming a charter chapter in the na-
tional Fraternity Beta Sigma Tau. Beta Sigma Tau's
aims like that of its predecessor Omega Phi Delta
is to promote inter-cultural, inter-racial and inter-
religious good vvill.
Beta Sigma Tau is primarily a social fraternity.
They are members of the Inter-Fraternity Council
and are participating in interfraternity athletics
and other campus affairs.

Beta Sigma Psi
EW ORGANIZATIONS anywhere can boast
the fine spirit of cooperation that has existed among
the members of Beta Sigma Psi during the past
year. Almost to a man the exhibitions of brother-
hood and the desire to participate in all activities
has been an inspiration to old and new members
alike. Most of the older members that activated
the fraternity in 1946 Will be graduated in June
1949. New men will step into their places, carry
on their duties and strive to perpetuate the tradi-
tions that have been so ardently upheld in the past.
We will remember and cherish always the parties,
dances, and banquets that brought the best times
we have ever had. Those of us who spent the sum-
mer of '48 at Angola realize that never again will
a summer bring gayer, happier, more carefree ex-
periences. Wherever two or three Beta Sigs are
gathered together in the years ahead, the incidents
of this occasion will live again.
The fraternity extends its most sincere congratu-
lations to its graduates and wishes for them the
best of health, happiness and prosperity in the
times ahead. We express the adamant hope that
somewhere in their scope of human travail, these
brothers that pass before us may find in their reper-
tories of endeavour, a moment or two for Beta
Sigma Psi. It is moments like these that leave us
nostalgic, yet with the undying thankfulness for
having lived them.

Beta Chi Epsilon
PERHAPS for an outstanding record of BXE
during the past year, we might turn to sports
where the fraternity emerged triumphant in Inter-
Fraternity competition in baseball, football, speed-
ball, and golfg or, the names of the class officers
can be checked, results showing 14 BXE's holding
office. Another method might be considering the
various organizations where the brothers have
proven their merit. But a real record is embellished
in the brothers' hearts. Here is the quiet pride that
comes to every man when he wears the diamond,
this is the true record of our fraternity.
Memories of good timesethe summer cottage
at Evans, the trip to Colgate, the Halloween Mas-
querade party, the parties after the basketball
games, all of these and more can be expounded by

Kappa Delta Psi
APPA DELT turned out in force for the inter-
fraternity dance last spring and did their bit to make
it a booming success. This was just the beginning
of a "party" season for us. The Sweetheart Dance
in April proved to be the social event of the year
when we tapped "Toby" Evans cider barrel.
Numerous "little" parties, interspersed among the
school social events, served to keep the group
Needless to say, we had a summer cottage which
turned out to be so "homey" that sundry members
from other fraternities played host by furnishing
all with bread and wine.
The summer of 1948 brought foremost in our
minds the old adage. "Never underestimate the
wiles of woman." Four of our brothers were
wrapped in the folds of matrimony. Gene Lewis
went first, in July, closely followed by Paul
Doehnert. just as we were getting over the recep-
tions that accompanied the aforementioned, we
were immersed in two more. Dave Underwood and

A new pledge class was ushered in, with pomp
and glory, in early October, and exposed to Kappa
Delt activities until their initiation in january.
These men are literally '49 KDP's, since the larger
percentage of the old members will be job seekers
The "Heat Bowl" episode transpired in Novem-
ber. All who attended will attest that the 1948
Frostkiller was the best to date. Shortly after, the
deer hunters took to the hills and subsequently
"brought home the bacon." So many Kappa Delts
"went south," incidentally, that it was possible
to have a small reunion in Olean.
December, as usual, was the Active-Passive
stag month. The old and new talked over a deli-
cious dinner at the Touraine, then relaxed with
their cigars while Frank Clair, with an assist from
movies of the Buffalo-Colgate game Cnothing to
say of the clan in Syracusewwe don't want the
house "dick" to know who we areD, explained the
fine points of football. Later in the evening, the
passives proceeded to fleece the actives with gam-
bling games they never heard of before. Those who
lost Cwere there those who didn't?D chalked it up to
experience. The Christmas Dance provided another
excuse to have a cocktail party and it was a fine
one. Passwords of the evening were "what dance?"

possibly even something else new. Kappa Delt
looks back over the last 29 years with satisfaction
and a feeling of accomplishment, we look forward
to greater feats-but more of this next year.

HE 1948-49 season on campus has been an active
and successful one for Kappa Nu Fraternity.
A couple of the outstanding highlights from the
Fraternity's crowded social calendar were the
Palestine Benefit Dance, by which the Fraternity
managed to turn over a sizeable sum to a worthy
cause, and, of course, the annual Kappa Nu-Year's
Party, at which everyone had a grand time.
In other fields too, the Fraternity has more than
held its own by placing in the field successful bas-
ketball, football, and pingpong teams.

THE KAPPA Sigma Kappa Fraternity was
founded in September 1867 at Virginia Military
Institute and now has forty chapters in schools
all over the country and in England, New Zealand,
and Canada. This New York Alpha Chapter at
the University of Buffalo was started March 20,
1948. The aims and purposes of the chapter are to
develop a spirit of brotherhood, to inspire loyalty
to the ideals and traditions of the University of
Buffalo, and to encourage activities social, forensic,
athletic, and especially scholastic. The fraternity
held hayrides, swimming parties, dinners, and are
planning a dance.

Chi Beta Phi-Xl Chapter
HE SCIENTIFIC FRATERNITY has been very
busy this year providing that it can be fun to
broaden one's intellectual background.
The year started with the annual banquet and
formal initiation ceremonies at the Hotel West-
brook. We were privileged to have as the main
speaker one of our own chapter members, Mr.
Schartz, whose paper on "Elementary Arithmetic"
won first prize in our national organization. Dr.
H. Tiekelmann and Mr. L. Pino, two faculty
members from the Chemistry Department were
formally welcomed as honorary members.
The summer picnic is fondly remembered by all
those attending as a very dripping success. Remem-
ber the beautiful spring showers we had?
On returning to school for the fall semester, the
lecture was resumed. Papers on many phases of
science interesting to the group were presented by
the student and faculty members.
It is sad to note that our participation in inter-
fraternity athletics has been so limited by our
The chapter's ranks were sorely depleted by
graduation, but a number of new members have
been initiated. Another pledge class is eagerly
awaiting the annual banquet in April so that they
may become full members.
The initial steps are taken to insure the success
of the national convention of Chi Beta Phi to be
held on our campus in early 1950. We hope that the
new oHTicers and members will receive the same co-
operation which has made the term of the present
officers so pleasant.

NIVERSITY football enyoyed one of its great-
est seasons in 1948. The Bulls lost one game, to
Colgate, tied one, with Niagara, and won six.
Young Frank Clair replaced james Peele as coach.
Mr. Peele had found it an impossible task to be
both coach and Director of Athletics. Mr. Clair
came late to the Bulls, and had no time to ade-
quately install his T formation plays before the
Colgate opener, but that defeat, while a stinging
one, was the sole setback in a rugged schedule.
Hobart, Alfred and RPI were not the toughest
teams we had to face, but Louisville, Niagara,
Bucknell and Washington and Jefferson had excel-
lent teams. Fortunately, the Bulls were growing
accustomed to Clair's system by the time these
contests were scheduled.
Clair inherited a fine team, and uncorked new
stars to fill that big gap left by the great Lou Cor-
riere. Jules Licata, a real magician with a football,
became first string quarterback. Vic Cleri, former
third string fullback led the team's backs with an
average of ten yards a try. Eddie Middlesteadt
contrived to blast through rival linemen like an
express train. Fritz Price came from nowhere to
become one of the team's leading scorers. But the
best of them all was unassuming Felix Siezega who
played ball like a demon, and turned in brilliant
playing at every turn. Even while we were losing
to Colgate, "Iron Man" Felix looked like a pro.
He will be a hard man to replace.
The linemen don't get much glory it's true, but
Serifmo Grotanelli and Les Molnar certainly were
outstanding for the Bulls at the tackle srpots.

UB vs. COLGATE
The Red Raiders of Colgate proved to be inhos-
pitable hosts by downing a tense, over-anxious UB
eleven 25 to 0 in the season's opener at Hamilton.
This game was witnessed by over 1000 loyal stu-
dents and alumni of our alma mater. The Bulls
were at a decided disadvantage since they had but
one month to absorb Coach Frank Clair's intricate,
UB vs HOBART
UB found the victory trail in their first home
contest in Civic Stadium, last October 2, and lam-
basted Hobart to the tune of 39 to 0. Despite a
torrential downpour, the Bulls pounded out 236
yards on the ground and 78 through the air.
Eddie Middlesteadt got two touchdowns while
Nick Nicosia, Howie Forrest, Vic Cleri and Fritz
Price received one apiece.
UB vs. RPI
RPI! ! The Blue and White juggernaut rolled on!
The Bulls paid the Engineers a visit and came home
with a 39 to 21 victory. Piling up a 32 to 7 halftime
lead, the Clairmen coasted in. Vic Cleri, 150
pound dynamo, scored twice on long runs as Buf-
falo showed its cleats to this old rival.
UB vs. ALFRED
Alfred! It poured again! The weather couldn't
have been worse, but even so, 3,000 loyal support-
ers huddled in Civic Stadium to watch the Bulls
nail down their third consecutive victory by
thwarting Alfred 8 to 0 in the only night game of
the year. Bob Conk, Clair's kicking ace, got a real
workout and proved that football is still largely
dependent upon the "educated toe." During the
third quarter of this mud-match only one running
play was attempted as UB and Alfred punted back
UB vs. WASHINGTON AND JEFFERSON
Washington and Jefferson College were number
four in the Buffalo win column by a 41 to 14 score.
Deacon Dan Towler, 230 lb. W 8:11 fullback who
had the best per game scoring average in the na-
tion, was completely checked by the UB forward
wall. The Blue and White was in high gear and
operated without a miscue. Price and Middlesteadt
accounted for two touchdowns each. The game was
really wide open, both teams scoring with the
first two minutes of play.
UB vs. LOUISVILLE
The Bulls hit their peak against a powerful
Louisville team to register a resounding 48 to 19
upset. Licata completed three passes and each one
good for six points! The Bulls total offense netted
487 yards, 330 by rushing. Sophomore Ray Wod-
arczak basked in the limelight by snaring a pair
of Licata's heaves, for as many touchdowns.
10,000 Louisville fans watched this onel
UB vs. NIAGARA
In a bitterly contested struggle the Purple Eagals
of Niagara battled the behemoths of Buffalo to a
standstill to earn a 13 to 13 tie on the saddest,
soggiest gridiron ever seen in Civic Stadium. The
tying play came in the final stanza. As a fourth
down McKinnon pass was going high over Niag-
ara's Wojciechowski, he was going over Cleri and
Wodarczak. Interference was called and Niagara
got a first down on the Buffalo one yard marker.
The Eagals scored in three plays to tie it up. All
hands are awaiting next years battle with keen

UB lowered the curtain on a successf

arch-rival Bucknell 47 to 13, It was a
comparatively nice day, with only a
drizzle, and the Clairmen clicked off
plays with machine-like precision as
they trampled the highly rated Bisons

OACH MAL EIKEN in his third year at the
helm of the University of Buffalo is trying hard to
add to his admirable record of 30 wins and 14
losses in the past two years.
At this writing, with a team composed oflmany
veterans, the Bulls have a seven won and four lost
record. The team is one that has gone hot and cold
as shown by its record.
Missing from last year's squad which has a 15
won and 9 lost record are only three men, Lou Cor-
riere, Bill Rudick and Zeke Mosher. '
Returning are Paul Bradey, last year's leading
scorer, Bob Eldridge, Len Serfistini and Bill Need-
ham. Among the newcomers are Jack Chalmers,
whose 6 foot 3 inches will help the squad a great
deal off the boards, Ted Moore a fine playmaker
and Jack Reid, a fine rebounder up from the fresh-
The Bull Basketeers faced a much tougher sched-
ule contending with such teams as Cornell, Niag-
ara, Georgia, Lafayette and Bucknell. Meeting
teams of this caliber makes the likeness of a suc-
cessful season a more difficult task.
The fortunes of the basketball team received a
severe blow when Paul Brady, the tallest Buffalo
man, and one of the leading scorers, withdrew from
school after the first semester.
U.B. 54 - HOBART 36
Before an overflow crowd in Clark Memorial
Gym the 1948-49 edition of the U.B. cagers won a
convincing victory over Hobart College. With
Bob Eldridge throwing in a one hander from the
side the Bulls went ahead and were never headed.
Jack Chalmers entered the game and immediately
caged two hook shots as U.B.. moved in front
27-18 at half time. The second half was a repetition
of the first with the Blue and White extending the
margin. Chalmers ended up with 12 points and
Eldridge and Paul Brady split 20 points.
U.B. 44 - CORNELL 67
The Bulls traveled to Ithaca with high hopes of
upsetting the Big Red. Cornell, having a hot night
moved quickly into the lead and stayed there. Bob
Eldridge was the only Buffalonian able to hit con-
sistently, ending with a total of 14 points.
U.B. 63 - Case 57
Playing on their home floor before a capacity
crowd the U.B. cagers played one of their best
games to outlast the Case School of Applied Arts
and Sciences. Taking the play away from their taller
adversaries with Chalmers and Eldridge hitting
regularly, the Bulls sped to an early lead and then
continued to match Case basket for basket. Chal-
mers with 16 and Eldridge with 14 points were
high for the Bulls.
U.B. 69 - TORONTO 45
Making their record 3 wins and 1 loss the Bulls
ran up their highest point total of the year to over-
whelm a spunky Toronto quintet. Led by Bob
Eldridge with 19 points and Paul Brady with 10
the Bulls moved into an early lead and the game
was never in doubt. Coach Eiken cleared the bench
with the subs playing most of the second half.
U.B. 51 - GEORGIA 56
Making their first appearance in Memorial Audi-
torium for the year the Bulls played host to a strong
Georgia five that had an average of 72 points a
game previous to the Buffalo tussle. Trailing
throughout the first half and part of the second the
Bulls came back, led by Eldridge, Chalmers, Brady
and Needham to knot the count at 47 all before a
late Georgia rally put the game on ice. Eldridge,-
Brady and Chalmers with 14, 13 and 11 points
led the Bulls.
U.B. 65 - LAFAYETTE 59
Playing their best game of the year the Bulls
nosed out Lafayette before a full house in the Me-
morial Auditorium. With Eldridge, Chalmers and
Brady hitting with regularity the Bulls got away
to a lead which the Lafayette Leopards could never
quite overcome. Bob Eldridge with 19 points
again was the top scorer for U.B. followed by
Chalmers with 12 and Paul Brady with 9.

U.B. 39 - CONNECTICUT 52
The Bulls made their return to Clark Gym a dis-
mal one by losing to Conn. Suffering a letdown
after being mentally up for two games the Bulls
never could get started and Connecticut started
fast and stayed in front. Buffalo blew a great many
easy shots and threw the ball away continually.
Jack Chalmers was the only Bull able to hit with
any consistency, being high Buffalo man with
U.B. 62 - MISSISSIPPI COLLEGE 56
Miss. invaded Clark Gym to be defeated by U.B.
in a very sloppy game on New Years Eve. Playing
only good enough to win, the Bulls were led in
the second half by Benny Constantino with 11
points and thus were able to withstand the
Choctaws late rush, Chalmers led Buffalo with I2
while Brady had 11.
U.B. 45 - ALFRED 54
Alfred, one of U.B.'s traditional rivals, traveled
to Buffalo to upset the Bulls in Clark Gym. U.B.
couldn'r get going as they were outplayed and
outfought by the smaller Saxons. Paul Brady,
playing his last game for the Blue and White, was
high for Buffalo with 14 counters.
U.B. 59 - FREDONIA STATE 31
After a two week lay off U.B. returned to the
wars to trounce Fredonia, 59-311 Off F0 2 510W Sffiff
the Bulls started to go in the second period. With
the first five playing barely half the game the second
and third stringers proved too much for the Teach-
ers. Len Serfustini was high with 13 followed by
Jack Reid with ll and Bill Needham with 8.

varsity cross country team. This was to be the nrst
intercollegiate harrier team in the athletic history

turnout in term of numbers was small, the spirit
of the group was enthusiastic.

THIS SEASON, the University of Buffalo swords-
men have developed into a highly skilled, well
coordinated fighting team. It is the opinion of
Coach Sidney Schwartz that the team is one of the
finest in Eastern America and one of the best to
have served UB. Last year the team members,
consisting of nearly the same men, developed their
strength, agility, vigor, coordination, and reflex
actions to a high degree. This year they put those
abilities to work, and the team became an intricate
scientific machine as their record substantiates.
The most gratifying aspect of this ancient sport
is the fact that almost anyone, with the proper
attitude and Willingness, can learn to fence. There-
fore, the team is always looking for newcomers,
anyone can join the beginners' squad. This year, the
beginners' squad was large and enthusiastic. Some
of the men will gain positions on the team to re-
place those who have graduated. However, open-
ings are still available for those who desire to

York golfdom. Holdovers from the previous season

leges as Canisius, Niagara, Fredonia and other
local institutions along with one international
tourney with the University of Toronto.

MARKED the initiation of inter-col-
legiate swimming competition at the University
under Coach Bill Sanford.
With the completion of our beautiful new pool,
a new era in athletics was born on the campus. The
"water-bulls" showed a great deal of enthusiasm
early in October when they began their training
with cross-country jogging and work-outs in the
gymnasium. The Humboldt YNICA was the site
of the blue and white varsity's first splashing.
They have come a long way since then under the
guidance of manager Bob Henderson.
Swimmers from nearly every school in the sur-
rounding area are represented on the squad. Many
of these have very impressive high school records
and should prove capable of forming the backbone
of one of the best college teams in the area. Among
the members who have shown outstanding per-
formances are: Norm Schueclcler, jack May, Ray
Borovviak, "Pancho" Aroujo, Don Zangerle, Dick
Knerr and Ed Bochstahler. Harry Miller, Nemo
Chase, Scotty MacLean, Rus Swain and Paul Fitz-
gibbons have turned out to be quite adept spring-
boarders. Larry Zangerle and Larry Bedhan show
great promise for the future.
As an infant member of the family of inter-col-
legiate athletic teams, the "water-bulls" have
proven themselves worthy representatives of the

UNDER the able guidance of the new mat men-
tor, Warren Gregory of Purdue, UB's muscle men
have at present an average of 500 with hopes of
bettering that before the end of the season. Due
to pre-season injuries, coach Gregory had to re-
place several of his veterans of last season in order
to open the '48-'49 schedule. With the return of
these men from the injured list and also some pre-
viously ineligible men, the coach feels that the
team has added strength and incentive. At present
the following aspirants constitute the varsity. At
121 lbs. Bob Oswzld-3 seasons, 128 lbs. Fred
Giovino-2 seasons, 128 lbs. Bill Shinvvell-2
seasons, 136 lbs. Sam Licata-2 seasons, 145 lbs.

Bernie Cesar-1 season, 165 lbs. Fritz Price-2 sea-
sons, 175 lbs. Gene O'Donnel-2 seasons, 175
lbs. Bill Powell-3 seasons, Heavy Don Beitleman
Other members who have also competed are

Adams, Robert Bergman.
