UNIVERSITY OF CONNECTICUT MEETS
NEEDS OF VETERANS
Before the war maximum enrollment at the University of Connecticut was in the
neighborhood of 2,000. To meet in part the demand for higher education the University
established branches at Hartford and Waterbury, in which the first two years of the curricu-
lum were offered. The last General Assemblylbefore Pearl Harbor provided, both by
direct appropriations and by self liquidating bond issues, total sums of almost five millions
of dollars for increasing the facilities at Storrs. None of this money was ever spent because
the war intervened.
Passage of the G.I. Bill for education doubled the demand for higher education and
presented all colleges and universities in the country with a major problem. The University
of Connecticut met this problem by setting up a priority system in which first priority was
given to veterans who were former students. Second priority was given to veterans who
were residents of the state but not former students of the University.
During the school year of 1946-47 the University of Connecticut has enrolled in
degree courses more than 8,000 students, or four times the number registered in the period
shortly preceding the war. Of these 8,000 students, more than half are veterans.
It was not untily july, 1946, that the University received a clearance from the United
States Government on Fort Trumbull. In little more than two months the University had
to recruit a staff and to change over the facilities at Fort Trumbull to University purposes.
If Fort Trumbull has not been all that could be hoped for, it has at least worked out better
than anyone had a reasonable right to expect. Without the facilities at Fort Trumbull there
are some 1,500 veterans who could not possibly have been accommodated in this state-or
perhaps anywhere. A
Facilities at Storrs, at Fort Trumbull, at Waterbury and at Hartford have all been
employed to the utmost this past year. Classes have been too large for the best results,
teachers have been overloaded and housing and dining facilities have been stretched.
Through it all the students, and particularly the veterans, have, for the most part, shown a
commendable patience and forbearance.
The peak in registration under the G. I. Bill for Education at the University of Con-
necticut has probably not yet been reached. We will be just as crowded in 1947-48 as we
have been in 1946-47. We hope that your patience and fortitude do not wear thin.
A. N. JORGENSEN, President.
If democracy is to survive and grow, its citizens must have characters educated to
promote the cooperation of men to counteract the disintegration that now drives them
toward mutual destruction. To do this, we must have college and university programs that
foster and discipline the characters of people for making responsible judgments of a
normative nature. Such programs must be designed to socialize and integrate personal
commitments and must be built to foster the merging, principle, purpose, and policy into
effective programs of action. The making of this kind of a college must avoid dictatorial
leadership and the pseudo-neutrality of the indicatively focused institutions that we know
so well. This task will foster the same democratic characters in the faculty, administrative
staff, working personnel, and student body. Furthermore, it will measure achievement and
success of worker and learner primarily in the terms of these characters and the achievement
of a discipline of practical intelligence. It will put approval upon those who learn to make
individual and group judgments of practice with increased and more dependable human
wisdom. With a University program thus normatively ordered, it is my belief that a
university education will be relined into an ever improving discipline of citizenship in a
humane social order. It is my hope that we can, in our small way, here at Fort Trumbull,
contribute to the type of educational program which will result in a nation of men and
women who know how to make intelligent judgments of practice and who know how to
work cooperatively with other men and women to determine a course of action based upon

ADMINISTRATION at FORT TRUMBULL
The administration of the University is determined in part by legislative enactment,
in part by the laws and by-laws of the Board of Trustees, and in part by regulations made
by the President, the University Senate and the several faculties.
The governing board, known as the Board of Trustees, appoints the President, deter-
mines the general policy of the University, makes laws for its government, approves the
establishment of new services and the expenditure of all University funds. The functions
of the Board of Trustees are defines in the laws, by-laws and rules of the Board.
The President of the University is the chief executive and administrative officer of
the Board of Trustees. In this capacity he is responsible for enforcing all policies and regu-
lations adopted by the Board for the operation of the University and is given authority
requisite to that end.
Each division consists of an executive officer, the director, and a staff of assistants and
is responsible through the Dean of the University to the President.
HISTORY OF THE
The General Assembly on April 6,
1881, established The Storrs Agricultural
School, accepting a gift of 170 acres of
land, several frame buildings and six thou-
sand dollars in money from Charles and
Augustus Storrs, natives of Mansfield.
In 1893 the General Assembly as-
signed to the school the proceeds of Con-
nectiu1t's share of the funds originating in
the Federal Land Grant Act of 1862 and
the Morrill Act of 1890. The name was changed to Storrs Agricultural College. At this time
the college was officially opened to women.
Subsequent changes in name have been as follows: 1899, Connecticut Agricultural
Collegeg 1933 Connecticut State College, and in 1939, The University of Connecticut.
HISTORY OF THE FORT
OF THE UNIVERSITY
Fort Trumbull came into being in
1775 when a fort was erected for the de-
fense of New London and Norwich. Here,
gallant Colonial troops defended their
post against attack by the British under
the command of the traitor, Benedict Ar-
nold, 1781. The defenders, far outnum-
bered and poorly equipped, were de-
feated, and the garrison retreated across
the river to Fort Griswold Cnow marked
by the tall monument which may be seen on the hill across the riverb where most of the
men were massacred. New London was then burned.
A second fortification was built in 1812 but demolished in 1839 when it was con-
sidered insuflicient for military defenses. Work on the present stone fort began and was
completed in 1839.
During the war the U. S. Maritime Service operated a school which graduated thou-
sands of men.
Twenty-three of the buildings were acquired by the University in july on loan from
the federal government for a five-year period, and in less than two months, classes were
begun with nearly 1400 in attendance.

The College of Arts and Sciences
The College offers two curricula differing some-
what in prescribed courses and fields of major Work.
One leads to the degree of Bachelor of Arts, the
other to that of Bachelor of Science. Work in the
College of Arts and Sciences prepares students to
enter schools of law, dentistry, and other profes-
sional schools in other universities.
The University ot Connecticut is part of a system
of public educational institutions established by the
citizens of Connecticut, through the General Assem-
bly, to serve the educational needs of the state.
The instructional offerings of the University are
designed to achieve objectives in general and liberal,
in pre-professional, and in professional education.
ALBERT E. WAUGH, M.S.
Dean of the College 0 f Arn and Science:
The curriculum in Business Administration offers train-
ing which, while somewhat directed toward vocational ob-
jectives, recognizes the civic responsibilities of business, the
program of each student being adapted to Ht his objectives.
Opportunity is given for specialization in accounting, finance,
industrial administration, insurance, marketing, and secre-
School of Engineering
The curricula offered in the School of Engineering are
designed to give sound knowledge of underlying principles
in mathematics, physics, and chemistry, to offer training in
the principles and practices of engineering, and to present
the opportunity to obtain additional instruction and experi-
ence in one of the three major engineering fields.
The College of Agriculture
The College of Agriculture, which is now supported by
both federal and state appropriations, not only offers resi-
dent instruction in agriculture but also does research and

THE TRUMBULL TIDE
In order to make up for some of the lacking facili-
ties at Fort Trumbull, the Student Council has spon-
sored the publication of this yearbook .... The Laurel
is not a class book, but rather a pictorial annual, its pur-
pose to pictorially record the series of events of a full
first year at Trumbull.
In order to insure ease of operation a small staff
was organized at the beginning. Those uninterested
enough to actively take part dropped out. The staff
became a small unit of hard working men, interested
solely in seeing a good book published for the student
Unfortunately, the Student Council was not made
aware that the students would like a yearbook until
early in the second semester. For this reason the work
on the book was not begun actually until the first of
April. N inety-six pages may seem small to the reader,
but the Editors know well enough that they are end-
less. For this reason several men stayed a week in June
and others until july to see that Trumbullites got their
yearbook. The Editor wishes to personally thank Bob
Capelle, Bruce Gordon, Graham Chase, Roy Drier,
and Dick Payne for their loyalty to the jobg without
their aid and invaluable help this book would go
THE TRUMBULL TIDE
Our newspaper had its humble beginnings on Tues-
day, October 8, 1946, when a large, eager group of
future journalists assembled in Mr. Adler's office. The
response from the student body was so large that the
meeting was moved to the Music Hall. Notices on all
the bulletin boards attracted fifty men.
What sort of a newspaper is desirable for the Uni-
versity? How many men are needed to handle the job?
What facilities were available for general production
and printing? These were questions raised at the first
meeting. The group quickly shaped itself into edi-
torial, features, news, sports and business staffs, and
in these separate departments temporary chairmen
were chosen. The'TIDE had been founded.

The Public Relations Club was formed at the beginning of the second semester with
the idea that students could learn about the many phases of public relations as a value to
them in choosing a career. They participate actively in the campus public relations program.

generally, for interpreting the University of Connecticut, and to present Fort Trumbull in
its best light.

The Writer s Club came into existence at the beginning of the first semester. The club
was organized to afford the opportunity of those interested in writing to compare their
works, selecting the best ones for publication. The club sponsored a successful contest for
the best poetry and prose, offering monetary prizes to the winners. FREELANCE, the
club's publication, combined the best efforts of club members and the contest winners. We
are hoping that a magazine as fine as this year's FREELANCE will be published in 1948.

FCRT TRUMBULL VARSITY BASKETBALL TEAM
The Fort Trumbull Varsity Basketball Team wound up its first season with a record of eighteen victories and
four defeats. It was an amazing record in view of the fact that this was their first season for the team and they
were playing against some schools with seasoned teams.
The Troopers' biggest nemesis was the junior Varsity from Storrs campus. The Storrs j.V.'s twice downed
the high-flying troopers, but the games were hard fought. With a little more experience the troopers might give
them a better battle.
The starting team was made up of Ruccio, Chapman, Hockett, Murphy and Sarle. The five threw in a total
of 832 points with Ruccio leading the scoring with 226.
Mr. Horvath should be thanked for the fine job he did in turning out a winning combination. It was the first
year for everyone and many difficulties were overcome. We are all looking forward to next year's team, for
with the experience gained thus far, they should really bring the "bunting" to Fort Trumbull.

JUNIOR VARSITY BASKETBALL TEAM OF FORT TRUMBULL
The Trumbull junior Varsity, affectionately known as the "Filthy Five" have secured an impressive record
for themselves with a season of seventeen victories and two defeats
Playing in the preliminaries to the varsity games, they lost only to Hillyer and Collegiate Prep. Gibbs,
Ruderman, and Lazar paced the j.V.'s with a total of 381 points between them.
The "Filthy Five" is the nickname given to the starting team for the juniors made up of Gibbs, Ruderman,
Lazar, Grossman, and Walsh. These men were often used on the Varsity and were a help in forming such a

FORT TRUMBULL VARSITY BASEBALL
When Coach Horvath announced the inauguration of baseball at Fort Trumbull and issued a call for candi-
dates the response was gratifying. More than fifty men showed up for the Hrst session, thus enabling Mr. Horvath
to have a large squad to pick from.
The candidates had their limbering-up exercises in the gymnasium until the weather finally permitted out-
door drills. Mr. Horvath put the squad through the usual routine and finally picked twenty-five men to make up
the varsity team.
The Troopers had a schedule of sixteen games, out of which they won twelve and lost four. The highlight
of the season was when Paul Salling pitched the Troopers to a 4--3 victory over the Coast Guard Academy during
the May Frolic weekend.

Intra-mural basketball turned out to be the most
participated in sport at Fort Trumbull. Because of the
keen interest in basketball here, 27 teams turned out
when league formation was announced. To give all
teams a chance to compete, the athletic department
held an elimination contest with all teams competing.
After completion of the elimination round, the
teams were divided into two leagues of eight teams
each, called the National and American Leagues.
Each team was made up of residents of one dormi-
tory floor with the exception of teams composed of
Commuters, Married Men, and the Faculty.
At the completion of the first round the standings
of the teams were as follows:
NATION.A' .LEAGUE AMERICAN LEAGUE

Dreadnought III.. Flying Cloud .
Comet III ............ Commuters
Faculty ................ Lightning I .....
Lightning II ........ Lightning III ..
Tradewind II Tradewind I
Red jacket 8:
Comet II ..............
Comet I .........
To start the second round, the teams that finished
in the IIISI division in each league were placed in the
American League. while the teams that finished in the
second division were placed in the National League.
This was done to insure closer competition and more
The National League ended up in a four-way tie
between Tradewind III, Comet II, Comet I, and the
Faculty team. This necessitated a play-off which Trade-
wind III took, and thus clinched the pennant.
Play off results in the National League:

The American League pennant was clinched by the

There was a final play-off game for the champion-
ship between Tradewind III and Lightning II. It was a
low scoring game and was played on the full length
Tradewind III defeated Lightning II by a score of
22-17, thus placing the crown on itself and the sup-
posedly inferior National League.
Bowling was one of the highlights of the winter
season at this branch of the University. Because Fort
Trumbull is fortunate enough to have bowling alleys,
all tournaments were played right here on the campus.
The teams each represented a dormitory floor, and
were divided into two leagues, League I and League II.
League I: Dreadnought lg Tradewind llg Comet Ilg
Lightning Ilg Lightning Ig Comet Illg Tradewind Ilg
Comet I "Tails." League II: Dreadnought Ilg Rainbow
Illg Rainbow Ilg Flying Cloud Illg Rainbow lg Light-
ning IIIg Dreadnought Illg Tradewind I.
Dreadnought I and Dreadnought II rolled for the
lirst round championship with Dreadnought II capping
the bunting. Bill Crochiere pacedthe champs with a
Lee Kramerczyk of Tradewind II took the 13 inch
trophy for high individual single. The high individual
triple was taken by Richard Grasso of Tradewind II in
the form of an eleven inch trophy. A nine inch trophy
for the highest individual average was taken by Tom
Tammany of Lightning II. The second Highest individ-
ual average award went to Fernandes of Comet III.
In the second round, the league winners were Dread-
nought ll and Tradewind II. Tradewind II won the
match and the bowling championship by a margin of
fourteen pins. Kramarczyk of Tradewind was high
man with 123.
At the season's close, a banquet was held and the
bowling awards were made. Frank Dagostino, of
Tradewind II took prizes for the championship team
of the 1946-47. High team three game pinfall for the
yearg and high team single for the year. The prize for
championship team for the first semester was taken by
Captain Charles Burns of Dreadnought I.
Because of the keen interest in softl
at Fort Trumbull, Coach Mozur organi
a softball tournament based along
lines of the basketball league.
The league was set up on the princil
of a double elimination tournament. Th
were sixteen teams entered, each ret
senting a floor of a dormitory. Each te
had to lose two games before it was c
sidered out of competition.
The games were played on our own d
field which was marked off in a softl
diamond. The games were well attenc
but the box-office record was set when
Married Men beat the Faculty with alm
the entire student body watching.
The championship game was betw'
Lightning I and Lightning III. Both tee
were sporting championship pitchers. For lightning I there was Gibbs, for Lightning
there was O'Keefe. As was predicted, it was a pitcher's duel.
Lightning III finally won the game by a score of 4-2 but it was a hard-fought strug
all the way. The turning point of the game was when Walt De Walt of Lightning III h
double with the bases loaded to drive in two runs and start his team scoring.
It was a fitting climax for the intra-mural season which had a marked success. We
all looking forward to the same spirit next year.

Among the other sports participated in at Fort Trumbull the first year are tennis,
swimming, ping pong and golf.
We have our own swimming pool in the basement of the Gymnasium where a class
was opened to acquaint students with the techniques of life saving and water safety. Mr.
Mozur was in charge, for fifteen hours of instruction, after which the candidates took the
Senior Life Saving test.
A popular spot on the campus at springtime was' the tennis court, located on the hill
adjacent to the old fort. Many students worked out examination kinks on Trumbu1l's one
and only court.

In the early part of the first semester many students complained that there was not
enough to do on the campus, and to rectify this, the Student Council inaugurated a series
of dances, the first of which was the Dreadnought Dance. These dances were sponsored
and run by men of the respective dorms and were extremely popular.
In the second semester a series of sport dances was held on Wednesday nights, with
women from local schools in attendance and music performed by Marty Capozza and his

This is the LAUREL for 1947
The Editor of this first LAUREL takes this space to acknowledge the efiorts of the staff
and to thank them for many extra hours of hard work. Many of the photos in this book are
the work of joe Shawinsky, Martin Braunstein, and Donald Wadsworth, who contributed
their efforts toward making this as complete an annual as possible. Roy Drier and Graham
Chase worked in the LAUREL darkroom on campus until hypo ran in their veins. Some
men such as Bob Capelle and Bruce Gordon stayed a week after the close of school to see
that their part of the book was complete in every detail. Others, Dick Payne and Roy Drier
stayed until the middle of July to see that the LAUREL got to the printer's.
The Business Staff, one of the most un-liked positions, did well in turning in a high
record of advertising sales. Thanks to Eliot Hagar who led the field, Richard Payne, second,
and Al Bourget, Clayton Cooke and Sam Fedorowitz.
The Administration, both at Storrs and at Trumbull, have been generous in their
cooperation, while Mr. Edward Adler was of great value in the donation of his advice and
The Editorship for this first LAUREL has been a pleasant one, may next year's Editor
meet with the same cooperation and active participation from all concerned.
