%m-v M m .jC ' ACe G. Te C74 I as i (D©ii(0 a®i " Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards, " said Soren Kierkegaard. College yearbooks are always traditionally bedecked with quota- tions. This one is more than a quotation — it is applicable to yearbooks themselves. For a college yearbook is a record of the present to be viewed in the future as a record of the past. The formative years it represents are the years which are looking forward to the future. Twenty years from now, say, the faces in this book may seem odd — not at all li ke the persons as we remem- ber them. The clothes may seem dated and everyone will look terribly young and uncertain. That is as it should be; reflection is a privilege reserved only for the experienced. Here then is the record of a group of young people growing up in uncertain times — as all young people do, and as ready and eager to meet them as those twenty years from now who read these words. The Nineteen Hundred and Forty Nine UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE NEWARK, DELAWARE MARGARET HUMPHREYS, Editor-in-Chii LOIS WEBER, Managing Editor NORMAN GLASSMAN, Business Manager ALBERT SMITH, Photography Editor Gwendolyn Crawford Elliott came to the University of Delaware as the Dean of Women at a time when great changes were being made. The Women ' s College no longer existed as a separate entity, and the rules which had governed the women had to be modified to fit the new situation. From this chaos she created a unified body. The old spirit was not lost, but it was enhanced by a new progressive outlook. Mrs. Elliott was cognizant of the problems of youth today, and she used this knowledge in formulating her policy. Her door was always open to those who wished to come in and talk with her. Through her understanding and experience we found the solution to personal as well as academic problems. She was more than a Dean of Women — she was a friend. Those of us who knew her find ourselves richer for this contact. Although Mrs. Elliott was here for only two and one-half years, the results of her integrity, compassion, ©ii®a(e a®s and understanding will not be erased. She is still an integral part of the University of Delaware. It is with deep appreciation and gratitude that our Staff, on behalf of the Class of Nineteen Forty-nine, dedicates the Blue Hen to Mrs. Randall Elliott. It is fitting that those who entered here four years ago should desire to be together again on leaving. ACKNOWLEDGMENT In grateful acknowledgment for invaluable assist- ance in the innumerable preliminaries prefatory to the publication of a yearbook and for indefatigable counsel and patient suggestion in matters involving both business and general production problems, the Staff of The Nineteen Forty-nine Blue Hen wishes to thank the following: Mr. William Bohning, Registrar; Mr. John Hodgeson, Assistant Business Administrator; Mr. Fred Mitchell, Bookstore Manager; Mrs. Marjorie Ritchie, Secretary in Charge of the Stenographic Service Center; Miss Amy Rextrew, Dean of Women; Dr. J. Fenton Dougherty, Dean of Men; Dr. Frederick Parker, Chairman, Faculty Committee on Student Pub- lications; Mr. Lloyd Teitsworth, University Research Photographer; The Staff of Hambleton Co., Inc., Printers and Lithographers. To Mr. Dan Button, the Staff wishes especially to express their sincere gratitude and esteem. A task has been completed that was made increasingly pleasant by every contact with our friendly, efficient Advisor. CONTENTS ADMINISTRATION 10 CLASSES 42 ORGANIZATIONS 106 SPORTS 158 013 GolLfe " A well-trained mind is made, so to speak, of all the minds of past ages: only a single mind has been educated during all that time. " — Bernard de Fontenelle Yo ou, as University students, possess an enviable and challenging oppor- tunity for attainment of the kind of knowledge which can be gained through formalized education. Few of our citizens ever will have such an opportunity, and to the majority of your fellow-citizens who lack that opportunity, you have a deep obligation to make the best possible use of your acquired knowledge. That leads us inevitably to the question: Knowledge for what? Education can ' t provide all the answers to the perplexing questions of our times except insofar as it can provide the method for arriving at them, the courage to find them, and the courage to defend them when found. 1 challenge you — and so does the world challenge you — to not only find the answers, but to defend your findings, and your right to arrive at them. Defend them against those who would distort them for the purpose of furthering sordid ends. To do so will require merely the calm courage to combat fear and despair, to meet problems as they arise, and to have the character to reshape our thinking accordingly. Freedom of inquiry, perhaps the greatest of our modern freedoms, is being threatened from many sides, and therefore must be defended. Only the unrestricted right of inquiry into man ' s current problem can unfetter the human drive for survival through growth which heralds a new age of quest for the world. It is my greatest hope that you as students, and later as graduates, will take your stand against the organized heresy-hunting which would shamelessly inhibit free inquiry were we to permit it to do so. By taking your stand, you will release new human energies so tremendous that they Will put the atomic bomb in its proper place in modern life, not as a destructive force, but as a symbol of the forces of good that can be tapped in all human society. The world ' s position today is akin to that in the early days of the Renais- sance, when medievalism ' s dogmatic bonds were broken and free inquiry swelled as a result. The same human drive for survival through growth is not only called for today, but it is again beginning to show itself. Today we live in the beginning of a new Renaissance. We live in a new age of quest in which, as once before, much of yesterday ' s knowledge becomes today ' s error to shape tomorrow ' s truth. It is up to you to continue that quest in all its numerous shapes and to guide it into a new Renaissance. 12 WILLIAM S. CARLSON, Ph. D. President 13 FRANCIS H. SQUIRE. Ph. D.

You, if you were not a veteran, entered after V-J Day. You never knew the urgency of the accelerated program, the lack of social activities of the war years, the concentration on relief work in our spare time for the refugees and needy of all countries. Some of you have accelerated by taking full schedules in the summer and many of you are veterans whose college work has been done over a period of years. To all of you congratulations and best wishes whether you have had four fairly normal col- lege years or whether you have finished by intensive work after years in the armed services. AMY REXTREW. M. A. Dean of Women JOHN F. DAUGHERTY. Ph. D. Dean of Men Your major concern right now probably is what you have gotten out of college, which is usually expressed by " What job am I ready for and where is it? " I would have you also consider what you have given the University of Delaware. Will its student government function better because of what you have given of your time, interest, and effort? Is the Review a better mirror of student opinion be- cause of you? Is there more serious interest in scholastic achievement? Has the sentiment toward individual responsibility for a higher ethical standard of conduct increased because of your efforts? The University is proud to have you one of its graduates. Are you proud of your University and the progress you helped it make during your four years of study? Amy Rextrew 15 N CHARLES E. GRUBB Business Administrator JOHN A.

Arm DEAN OF THE SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING The Engineering curricula are designed to train students for successful careers in four major divisions: Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Mechanical Engineering. The School of Engineering has designed its curricula not only to teach the fundamentals of engineering, but to familiarize the students with the economic and social aspects of engineering. Grad- uate programs leading to the Master ' s Degree are offered in the Division of Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. In the Division of Chemical Engineering, graduate work is leading to a degree of Doctor of Philosophy. The School of Engineering conducts research projects in connection ' with various industrial firms and the United States Government. David L. Arm, Dean of the School of Engineering, came to the University of Delaware in 1940. Before that time he had had a varied and interesting engineering career follow- ing his graduation from Lafayette College with a Degree of Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. He did graduate work at Lehigh, the University .of Michigan, and Lafayette. From that time on he held positions as drafts- man, designer, test engineer, personnel director, and depart- ment head at various large universities, among these, Iowa State College, Purdue, and Lafayette.

Earl Armstrong came from the mid-West in 1945 to head the newly-created School of Education at Delaware. Until that time, his life had been spent west of the Appala- chians, where he had traveled from his birth-place in Fulton County, Arkansas, to Oklahoma, getting his Bachelor of Science degree from East Central State College and his Master of Science in Education from Oklahoma A. M. Going still further west, he earned his Ed.D. at Stanford University in California. Dean Armstrong next went ot Muskogee, Oklahoma as a high school principal. After several years there, he moved to Utah as Director of Instruction for the Salt Lake City schools. His next step upward in the field of Education was taken when he became the Field Coordinator on the Commission of Teacher Education of the American Council in Education. It was the position as Dean of College at Ohio Wesleyan University that he left to take up his duties at Delaware. Since he has been here, he has been directly responsible for the growth of the teacher training program at Delaware. He has expanded his school, increasing the faculty and the curriculum, especially in the fields of community develop- ment and evaluation. The curriculum laboratory has been expanded greatly and includes up-to-date text books, refer- ence books, courses of study, testing materials, and audio- visual aids to be used in the training of the future teachers of Delaware and the nation.

He received both his B. A. and M. A. from Ohio State University in 1916 and 1918 respectively. At the age of 29 Dean Schuster became Professor ol Agronomy and Chairman of the Agronomy Department as well as being a research agronomist here at Delaware. Then for nine years he was Dean and Director of Agri- cultural Extension and the Agricultural Experimental Station. In this work he directly benefited the farmers of Delaware, for the Station, in cooperation with the U. S. Department of Agriculture, carries on research to aid the farmers in crop improvement, gives aid and advice to the 4-H groups, and assists the farm population to solve its many engineer- ing problems. The dean has written fourteen articles on the study of soil and farm management which have appeared in the Dela- ware Agricultural Experiment Station Bulletins. Another honor which can be listed to his credit is the award of an Agricultural Fellowship to Cornell University in 1927-1928. The year after the completion of his studies at Cornell, Dean Schuster sailed to Europe, where he studied the methods of research and the agricultural problems of that continent. Within the past year he has travelled throughout this country, visiting some fifteen Land-Grant Colleges in New England and as far west as Minnesota with the intent of improving our School of Agriculture. Despite his pressing duties as dean, Mr. Schuster still finds time for relaxation and the pursuit of his two favorite hobbies, wood-working and color photography. Ik-Sb :.)Ht . ill IftL yf. MR. E. p.

Dean Ayars was born in West Virginia, and now makes her permanent home in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She took her B.S. in Home Economics at West Virginia University, and her M.S. at Pennsylvania State College. During her college career she was elected to Mortarboard, an honorary scholastic society for women, and Phi Upsilon Omicron, honorary Home Economics fraternity. She was also a mem- ber of Pi Beta Phi, a national social sorority. Before coming to Delaware, Dean Ayars taught at the University of Tennessee.

Primarily an organ for disseminating news, the REVIEW has tried to maintain com- plete and adequate coverage of all campus activities, and to present this material in a non- partisan manner. In controversial issues every attempt shall be made to submit the arguments of all factions for the consideration of the reader. The REVIEW is not a " political tool " for any group. The present administration has assured that no censorship shall be exercised and that " Freedom of the press " is to be maintained at Delaware. The judgment of the undergraduate staff alone dictates what shall be printed. The second objective of the REVIEW is to arouse student interest in campus activities, and to improve school spirit and solidarity. It is the belief of the staff that the University has the potentiality of giving to every one of its students a well-rounded college life. The REVIEW, campus organizations, strives to accomplish this development of the potential. Ever since its founding in 1882, the REVIEW has served as a workshop for students interested in journalism and allied fields. The experience gained by working upon the numerous staffs of the paper has proven of value not only in these fields, but also in every phase of life, for the REVIEW affords an opportunity for working with many different people. No other organization on campus encom- passes as many people as does the REVIEW. ii i ' 3 E-52 PLAYERS The E-52 Players is one of the University ' s most popular and well-known organizations. It is an active productive group primarily, composed of those students who are interested in the art of play production and in the improve- ment of dramatic techniques and presentation. Originally, E-52 referred to the title of an English course which produced scenes for class study. During the early Thirties, the group expanded to include the Women ' s College. From its first major production at that time, its history may easily be traced step by step up a ladder of successes, which represents the Players ' rapid growth toward becoming one of Delawar ' e ' s favorite institutions.

There was an air of the professional about the recent production of Mary of Scotland — in its every aspect, from staging to costuming, from lighting to acting, from beginning to end.

As it is now organized, the S.G.A. includes a representative of each class and of each school, with two from the school of Arts and Sciences because of its large enrollment. Following the plan established last year, the S.G.A. has held that all organizations on campus must be self-sufficient so that funds could be used for the benefit of the entire student body. An extensive social agenda was planned by the Social Com- mittee, headed by Bill Gordon, because the organization fully realizes the need for a well-rounded social life. One of the high- lights of the year was the Christmas Formal, featuring the music of well-known Hal Mclntyre, and held in the field house. This affair was the first big event with a well-known entertainer given to the students at a small cost, which is the idea the S.G.A. is carrying out. Because the University will not have a new Student Union for several years, a lounge was opened in the basement of the Library, designed principally to fill the needs of the commuters. The present Student Union was redecorated for the entire student body. Fr TAU BETA PI National Honorary Engineering Fraternity Delaware Alpha Chapter of Tau Beta Pi, a national honorary engineer- ing fraternity, was established at the University of Delaware in 1933. The purpose of this organization is to mark in a fitting manner those who have conferred honor upon their Alma Mater by distinguished scholarship and ex- emplary character as undergraduates in engineering, and to promote a spirit of liberal culture in the engineering colleges of America. The active chapter this year con- sisted of thirty-two graduates in every branch of engineering. OFFICERS President James B. Clements Vice-President Robert R.

McDonough PI MU EPSILON National Honorary Mathematics Fraternity Pi Mu Epsilon is a National Honorary Mathematics Fraternity organized for the purpose of promoting interest in mathematics and scholarship. The Alpha chapter of Pi Mu Epsilon was organized on the Delaware campus in 1941. Among the activities of the fraternity are short lectures given either by guest speakers or members of the organization, discussions by the group of mathematical ideas, and social gatherings. OFFICERS Faculty Adviser G Cuthbert Webber Secretary Patricia M, Spraberry Program Chairman Gilbert Kaskey Social Chairman , . . Harry Smith Treasurer Ralph Jones THE AUGUSTAN SOCIETY The Augustan Society, Delaware ' s only literary organization, publishes the biennial literary magazine, THE CAULDRON. Meeting once a month, members and guests engage in forum discussions on topics of literary and aesthetic interest. During the past year critical analyses of current CAUL- DRONS were undertaken as well as discussions of author-publisher rela- tionships, comparisons of present liter- ary productions and of classic works of literary merit. Under the faculty sponsorship of Mrs. Sara B. Rogers the Augustan Society has emerged as an organization of cultural force on campus. OFFICERS President Margaret Humphreys Vice-President Robert Burk Secretary Marie Pavia THE CAULDRON The CAULDRON is the literary magazine of the University of Delaware and is devoted to the talents of the undergraduates in the fields of literature and art. It is a means of encourag- ing the young author to write on his own, provides an outlet for such independent creations, and gives the author a chance to see his work in print. It also provides an outlet for work in advanced writing and art courses and prints many of the best poems and stories entered in the literary contest. In recent years the mark of war-experience has been felt in much of the material submitted to the CAULDRON. Its stories have recalled the veterans ' experience overseas, its art has por- trayed the battleground, and its poetry has told the thoughts, hopes, and disillusions of the war and post-war years. It is the students themselves who serve as the guiding members of the CAULDRON staff, determining its policies, and selecting the material to be printed. They are ably advised and assisted by their faculty sponsor, Mrs. Sara B. Rogers. EDITORS FOR THE FALL ISSUE Editor-in-Chief John F.

The founding of the Scabbard and Blade was the result of a feeling on the part of a number of college men that such a military society was necessary to develop and foster the ideals and practice of military education in the colleges and universities in which military science and tactics was a part of the curriculum. The society was founded in 1904 at the University of Wisconsin. The growth of the society has been steady since that time and at the present time there are over 45,000 members in the eighty-nine companies. The purpose of Scabbard and Blade is primarily to raise the standards of military education in colleges; to unite in closer relationships their military departments; to encourage and foster the essential qualities of good and efficient officers; and to promote friendship and good-fellowship among the cadet officers. Further, the society disseminates knowledge of military educa- tion among the students and people of the country in general, acquainting them with our national defense needs. Activities of the local company are many and varied, depending to some extent on the present needs on this campus, but they are always based on service to the country, the university, and its military department. 119 A. S. M. E. American Society of Mechanical Engineers The student branch of the A.S.M.E. was organized to supplement the regular classroom instruction by broadening the student ' s acquaintance with the practical side of mechanical engineering through talks by outstanding speakers at the monthly meetings and by frequent inspection trips to local industrial plants; and to establish fraternal contacts with fellow engineering students in this and other colleges, and to meet graduate students in the active performance of their specialties. Frank Moore President Thomas Shorts Vice-President Roger A. Graves Secretary Daniel F. DuHamell, Jr Treasurer Edward C. Lawson, Jr Faculty Adviser Roy Aydelotte Chairman John McDonough Vice-Chairman Hov ard Martin Secretary Ernest Wesley Treasurer Charles Anderson Publicity-Chairman Robert Grimditch Program-Chairman AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF ELECTRICAL ENGINEERS The student branch of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers affords the student engineer at Delaware the opportunity to become more closely acquainted with some of the problems and personalities of nearby industrial firms. It has the further aim of creating a sense of responsibility to, and respect for, his fellow engineer. As a member of the National Institute, the student enjoys all of the benefits normally accorded members of any professional society. The principal features of the student program include a semi-annually conducted tour of a local electrical installation, monthly lectures by leaders in their field, and the now-traditional semi-annual picnic. The Engineers Ball is jointly sponsored by the A.I.E.E. and the other engineering societies on the campus. 120 AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF CHEMICAL ENGINEERS The local affiliate of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers seeks to enlarge the general background of the Chemical Engineering student and to promote interest in fields outside the classroom. To accomplish these purposes, the Chapter invites well-known engineers to speak at its meetings, and it also sponsors field trips to some of the large industrial installations located nearby. In addition, the Chapter encourages scholarship by making an award to the member from the Junior Class who attained the highest index during his Freshman and Sophomore years. John Harrison President lames Thompson Vice-President Homer Stoyton Secretory-Treasurer AMERICAN SOCIETY OF CIVIL ENGINEERING It is the purpose of the local affiliate of the American Society of Civil Engineers to augment formal class instruction and laboratory sessions of the students. An attempt is made to do this through field trips, speakers from large industrial establishments, technical films, and papers presented before the Society by the members themselves. In thus broadening the student ' s acquaintance with the practical side of Civil Engineering, the Society helps its members by giving them a deeper insight into the professional world of which they will soon become a part. 121 President Vice-President Recording Secretary , , Corresponding Secretary Social Chairman Faculty Adviser James M Goldey Nancy Peter . David Bunin Julian Russo Patricia Reybold Edith A McDougle THE MATHEMATICS CLUB The Mathematics Club gives to interested students additional opportunities outside the class- room for the enjoyment of mathematics for its own sake. Topics in pure and applied mathe- matics, and in the history of mathematics are discussed, frequently from points of view different from those taken in the classroom. Program participants are members of the faculty or of the stu- dent body or speakers from outside. One of the club traditions is the annual presentation of a book on some mathematical topic designed for general reading, to the Memorial Library of the University. Membership in the club is open to freshmen and sophomores as well as to the mem- bers of the upper classes, the main qualification being " intellectual curiosity. " AMERICAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY The University of Delaware Chapter of Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society was organized in 1940 for students of chemistry and chemical engineering. The purpose of the organization is to familiarize its members with the chemical world, both by making field trips to chemical plants and by inviting guest speakers, who represent various phases of the chemical industry to meetings. In addition to membership in the local organization, student affiliates receive a subscription to the official weekly publication, " Chemical and Engineering News, " as well as the right to register with the Regional Employment Clearing Houses of the American Chemical Society.

The purposes of the Society are to honor those men who have worked hard as undergraduate managers, to promote the efficiency of the managerial system through cooperation with the Athletic Department, to extend the hospitality and good will of the University to all visiting athletic teams, and to promote the general welfare of the University. Although the Society is an honorary organization, it is als o an active organi- zation, meeting every week in order to arrange for the meeting of visiting teams and to under- take such other tasks that the Society feels will promote its objectives. The members of the Society wear a gold latch key with a blue " D " superimposed upon it. THE DELAWARE STUDENT TEACHERS ' ASSOCIATION The Delaware Student Teachers ' Association is a newly formed campus organization devoted to those students who plan a teaching career or who are interested in the problems of educa- tion. This association is a chapter of the Future Teachers of America, the student branch of a national organization of teachers and educators. The objectives of the group are to deal with the present and future problems of the pros- pective teacher, to enable future teachers to meet on an informal basis, and to enable them to become more closely acquainted with school systems. OFFICERS President Ed Braun Vice-President Ace Hoffstein Secretary Trudy Baynard Treasurer William Jenkins 123 DEBATE The University of Delaware Debate Club en- tered Its first full year of competition during the fall semester. After a series of practice debates between members of the squad two teams went to the Intercollegiate novice tournament at Temple, the negative emerging as the only unde- feated team in their section of the tournament. Squad members engaged in a series of inter- collegiate dual debates with Washington College, Penn, Penn State, Temple, LaSalle, Duquesne, ' American University, Catholic University, Ursinus, Haverford, PMC, Rutgers, and a number of other schools. In addition, two barnstorming tours were CLUB arranged, one to Washington and one to New York. The squad joined the Ben Franklin Con- ference and made a creditable record in that tournament. The national debate topic for the year was " Federal Aid to Education, " other topics were " National Control of Atomic Energy, " " Federal World Union, " and several local ques- tions. During the spring the first of a projected series of intramural debate tournaments was held. The squad also organized in preparation for membership in one of the honorary national de- bate fraternities. William Bush and John Broujos acted as debate managers. BRASS SEXTET The Brass Sextet, under the direction of Mr. King, entered its second year as a University organization. It continued its excellent work of presenting seldom-heard brass music of the Six- teenth Century to the present day. The members presented concerts during a three-day tour of downstate Delaware and on March 26 played before the In and Around Philadelphia Music Educators Club. Another tour during the spring recess carried the group through Maryland and Virginia. 124 OFnCERS President Charles Davis First Vice-President Leonard Hitch Second Vice-President George Bradley Secretary Eugene -Anderson Treasurer Ralph Barwick Freshman Representative Alec Rogers Program Chairman Arthur Lenhart, Jr. Editor ol " Aggie News " ... Richard Lindsey THE AGRICULTURE CLUB The Agriculture Club is the oldest and largest student organization on campus. Its aims are to encourage a closer relationship between faculty and student members, to broaden the student ' s perspective in the field of agriculture, and to introduce personalities prominent in the profes- sion today. The annual social events sponsored by the club include a Father and Son Banquet, and a dance and spring picnic in conjunction with the Home Economics Club. Future plans provide for a closer correlation with the Home Economics Club and joint publication of an annual magazine. HOME ECONOMICS CLUB It started in 1927 when the Home Economics students decided to develop an organization which has since grown steadily in popularity. At present, every student in the School of Home Economics automatically becomes eligible for membership. The purposes of our club are (1) to promote the feeling of fellowship and unity among the students of the School of Home Economics; (2) to furnish an opportunity to participate in social functions, such as programs, teas, picnics for club members; (3) to keep the students in touch with recent developments in the field of Home Economics; (4) to acquaint members with professional opportunities; (5) to promote foreign fellowship; and (6) for a better understanding between students and faculty. m» mim ' m.

It acts as a coordinating council for the three Protestant groups on campus, the Wesley Club (Methodist), the Alison Associates (Presbyterian), and the Canterbury Club (Episcopal), and presents a union vesper service for all interested Protestant students every Sunday evening of the school term. Among its other activities this year was the get-acquainted party-dance for incoming fresh- men and upper classmen. INTER VARSITY CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP The Delaware Inter Varsity Christian Fellowship is one of the two-hundred fifty American chapters of the international organizations, the program of which seeks to uphold the funda- mental values of religious organization in colleges and universities the world over. Aiming to provide Christian fellowship and to stimulate Christian thinking, the local Inter Varsity engages in daily study-group activity and weekly Bible review. In addition, its regular monthly meeting features capable speakers on pertinent Biblical topics. 126 OmCERS President William Cole Vice-President lohn W, Christy Secretary-Treasurer Elizabeth A. Logue Chaplain Sarah Lindsay THE ALLISON ASSOCIATES The Allison Associates is an organization of Presbyterian students at Delaware. The objec- tives of this group are the study and practice of the teachings and beliefs of the Presbyterian Church. Guest speakers, discussions, social activities, and works in conjunction with the Church are included in their program. The club is associated with the Delaware Student Christian Asso- ciation and is represented on the University Religious Council. THE CANTERBURY CLUB This year, under the guidance of its new chaplain, the rector of St. Thomas Episcopal Church, the Canterbury Club has shown a new unity and forcefulness. Communion services are now held every Wednesday morning especially for Episcopal students, and studies of Church Liturgies and Churchmanship have been made. Visiting clergy spoke during the year on the topics of Love, Courtship, and Marriage, chosen as a general topic for study by the members of the club. On the social side dances and parties completed the program. rl ■P P JiSl JM i M mm - 3 I BHr ' ' l y HBSw i v ' - S H OFFICEHS President Jack Hillary Smith Vice-President Burt Williams Secretary Trudy Baynard Treasurer Parke Pereni OFFICERS President Earl Tull Vice-President William Reinicker Secretary Joan Ware Treasurer Caroline Connelly WESLEY CLUB The Wesley Club is the organization on campus of Methodist students and their friends. The purpose of the organization is to continue and strengthen the student ' s contact with the Church, and to bring a deeper realization of its importance to him. This year marked the third year of the Club as a functioning group. There is a growing active membership of about thirty. Some of the Club activities have included a Christmas Party, a Second Annual Spring Banquet, and numerous seasonal parties. The weekly programs have consisted of guest speakers, religious movies, debates, and panel discussions on pertinent con- temporary matters. THE HILLEL COUNSELORSHIP The Hillel Counselorship of the University of Delaware is a Jewish community within the pluralistic college community. In the true sense, it is not a student organization, but on educa- tional one, under professional direction for the guidance of Jewish students. Hillel is not an exclusive training center for Jewish leaders, but rather the workshop-community preparing Jewish college youth for participation in Jewish life. Hillel as the Jewish college community is, therefore, a voluntary organism open to all, for the benefit of the college community, the American community, and Judaism as a whole.

Its purpose at Delaware is to assist the Catholic young men and women to apply Christian thoughts and prin- ciples to the problems of the campus community and to the intellectual formation that they are receiving as college students. This assistance is rendered in a well-coordinated three-phase program of religious, intellectual and social development. The Newman Club has now nearly two hundred members, and is, in consequence, the largest single organization on campus. The greatly increased membership is largely due to the hard work of the officers and the chaplain, the Reverend Thomas A. Carlin, who have developed a varied program ranging from lectures by prominent members of the clergy and laity, forums, study clubs, parties, picnics, publications, and the semi-annual communion breakfast. In addition, during the past year club members have taken an active part in regional and national programs of the Newman Club Federation, of which the Delaware club is a member. UNITED WORLD RELIEF FUND The Second Annual Fund Drive sponsored by the University Committee on the World Relief Fund was conducted this year under the co-chairmanship of Dr. Glenn Dildine, Associate Professor of Education, and Miss Joyce Wakefield, Newark Arts and Science student. The goal of the recent Drive was $3500. In addition to the general program of personal solicitation of contributions, during the first week in December, the Committee sponsored a piano concert by Dr. and Mrs. Kurt Wohl in Mitchell Hall and two chrysanthemum sales, one each at the Muhlenburg and Washington and Lee football games. Receipts of the campaign were divided between the World Student Service Fund and the American Friends Service Committee. 129 INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS CLUB The International Students Club, composed of students of foreign birth, was organized in Nineteen Forty-seven. Its purpose has been, with the aid of a small group of American-born students, to make the foreign student a more active member of the college community. Toward this end, it has been successful. Discussion groups have been formed with other clubs; language tables for those students speaking French and Spanish have been set up in Kent Dining Hall; hiking trips have been made. The big event of the Club ' s activities for the year has been the costume party at which each member appeared dressed in the costume of his or her native country. At present, fifteen countries are represented in the Club. Panayotis Lambropoulos President Simone Baboud Vice-President Katherine Watson Secretary Efim Pernikoff Treasurer INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS CLUB The International Relations Club is an organization devoted to the study and discussion of international affairs in an honest effort to clarify in our own minds pressing world problems. Controversial issues are usually presented in the form of a panel discussion followed by a general discussion. Our guest speakers are chosen from the faculty of the University, the student body, and from persons of significance in the surrounding area. The only qualification for membership is a genuine interest in interna- tional affairs. Our faculty sponsor is Dr. Felix Oppenheim, Chairman of the department of Political Science. Judson E.

The group was known as the McCue Club prior to the initiation into the National Fraternity. The Dela- ware Chapter is the 46th Chapter to be established in forty-four states. The Fraternity of Alpha Zeta is an honorary, agricultural fraternity. It was founded by Charles W. Burkett and John F. Cunningham in 1897, at Ohio State University. The objects of the frater- nity are to promote the profession of agriculture, to establish, foster and develop high standards of scholarship, character, and a spirit of fellowship among all its members. To qualify for membership, the student must be regularly enrolled in the School of Agricul- ture, shall have completed at least one and one-half years of his four-year college course, be in the upper two-fifths of his class scholastically, and possessed of those qualities of leadership and character as to make him of promise as a servant of agriculture.

The local, Chi Lambda Society, formed in November, 1948 through the efforts of Dean J. Fenton Daugherty and Mr. J. Edward Murphy, an alumnus of the University, petitioned the National Omicron Delta Kappa Society for the establishment of a " Circle " at Dela- ware. The petition was approved and Chi Lambda Society became Beta Sigma Circle of the ODK Society on March 9, 1949. The purpose of the Society is to honor those junior and senior men who, through service to the school, have proved their character, service, and leadership in campus life, scholarship and intelligence, fellowship, and consecration to democratic ideals. The candidate must have attained distinction in at least two of the below-mentioned phases of collegiate activity: Publications; Speech; Scholarship; Athletics; Social and Religious affairs; Music; and Dramatic Arts. 132 Editor Howard M. Berg Assistant Editor Norman Glassman FRESHMAN HANDBOOK The XXVIII Edition of the Freshman Handbook was designed to acquaint the incoming students with the traditions, history and organizations of the University. A close affiliation among the Deans of the Schools, the S.GA., and the editors, brought forth a series of rules and regulations which were adopted to aid our newcomers in becoming active and appreciative citizens on campus. The new S.G.A. Constitution, dormitory rules. Women ' s regulations, and class privileges introduced the Freshmen to the laws by which we are governed. The extra-curricular activities embodied in the handbook familiarized the students with the social and independent organiza- tions which are available to round out their curriculum. No less essential than the rules by which he is governed, the Handbook included a section on acquiring effective and efficient study habits. r VARSITY CLUB The Varsity Club is the undergraduate organization of students who have earned their " D " in varsity intercollegiate competition. First conceived in Nineteen Forty-one, the Club became a reality last year under the sponsorship of Mr. Harry Rawstrom, and includes in its honorary membership the memb ers of the University coaching staff. Candidates for admission are judged on the basis of their contribution to their team and to school spirit, and on their ideals of good sportsmanship and moral character. The Club has as its objectives the fostering of good will and school spirit among the students, athletes, and athletic bodies; the promotion of a Delaware code of sportsmanship with all athletes and spectators participant; the development of an attitude of self-sacrifice and year-round training for top performance in all sports; the encouragement of high scholastic achievement; and service to the University of Delaware. pr n PP rf r OFFICERS President . .

Its purpose is to bring together those students interested in the various aspects and problems of sociology. To accomplish this, the club has speakers from outside and from within the club to explain their contacts and experiences in the field of sociology. One of the major purposes of the organization is to conduct the annual field trip formerly handled by the Sociology department. PSYCHOLOGY CLUB The Psychology Club was officially installed at the University of Delaware in February, 1948. Its purposes are to advance the science of psychology, and to encourage, stimulate, and main- tain the interests and scholarship of the members in all academic fields and particularly in psychology. Membership voted a candidate may be of three sorts, active, associate, or honorary, depend- ing upon his academic standing. At the present time there are forty-four members. Aimed primarily at being instructive, the monthly meetings include speakers, motion pictures, and symposiums. OFHCERS President R. W. Dillman Vice-President Robert P.

The personnel of the Choir, com- posed of selected voices from all Departments of the University, has provided an opportunity for the major as well as the non-music major to sing choral literature of significant value. The traditional Christmas program given in conjunction with the Department of Dramatic Arts was an outstanding program of the year. The annual three-day Spring Tour of the Choir and the Brass Sextet made it possible for several High Schools and P.T.A. groups to hear the organization. The Tour, with arrangements for over-night lodging taken care of by townspeople in the various communities, was an enjoyable experience for all the students. UNIVERSITY ORCHESTRA The University Orchestra, under the direction of Mr. J. R. King, is composed of students and faculty of the University and instrumentalists from the surrounding areas. Anyone who plays an orchestral instrument is eligible for membership in this organization. The Orchestra is in its third year, and as yet, remains a small organization. Because of this, its repertoire has been limited to works of composers of the Eighteenth and early Nineteenth Centuries — works that require a small instrumentation. This has resulted in the performance of many works that are relatively unfamiliar to the average audience. This year, concert programs have included music by Corelli, Bach, Schubert, Beethoven, Delius, and Humperdmck. T HE CHEERLEADERS The cheerleaders, headed by co-captains Jane Gordon and George Glynn, did a fine job of leading cheers at pep fests and football and basketball games. Pep fests were held prior to the big games and usually began with a torch- led parade up campus and were climaxed with a bonfire on Frazier field. The biggest rally was held before the Washington and Lee game. At this rally the cheerleader ' s Perpetual Decoration Trophy, awarded annually to the best decorated house or dormitory, went to Kappa Alpha Fraternity in a closely contested competition. (Last year ' s winner had been Warner Hall.) A new system of selection of cheerleaders has been devised by this year ' s group. Now new members will be chosen from each incom- ing freshman class. The competition will take place during freshman week. This year ' s turn- out was the largest in the history of the squad, with most of the competition coming from the class of fifty-two. After trying several ways of announcing cheers, the one found most suitable was with the use of a public address system. This was used with favorable results at the Washington and Lee game, for with the system everyone in the stands was able to hear just what the cheers were to be and the response from the crowd was increased. The cheerleaders are the custodians of the University mascot, Dela, the Blue Hen. She has traveled to all the games, at home or away. Wherever you see the cheerleaders, Dela, the hen is not far away. 136 ALPHA PHI OMEGA NATIONAL SERVICE FRATERNITY Alpha Phi Omega is a Service Fraternity, and in this sense is unique among campus organizations. This fraternity has a definite program of activities in which the pledges and members direct their energies and talents for the benefit of their fellowmen. The true meas- ure of a successful chapter is the service ren- dered to its campus and community at large. The first chapter of Alpha Phi Omega was formed at Lafayette College in December, 1926, by a group of former Scouts who recog- nized the desirability of carrying over into their campus life the ideals and principles which they had adopted as Scouts. This serv- ice fraternity has grown steadily throughout its 24 years ' history. At the present time there are 175 chartered chapters and several preparatory groups. More than 22,000 men have been affiliated with Alpha Phi Omega since its founding. Being a service fraternity. Alpha Phi Omega crosses all lines of honorary, social, and pro- fessional fraternities, and thus members of other campus organizations may also be active in this fraternity. After being recognized for four months as a preparatory grou p, the Zeta Sigma Chapter was established formally on the Delaware campus on May 26, 1948. However, in the short time that it has been in existence, it has already gained campus and community recog- nition for its worthwhile service projects. The varied projects included such things as con- ducting the various campaign fund drives for noteworthy organizations, conducting campus tours for visiting groups, and promoting activi- ties and facilities for young groups. UNIVERSITY BAND Again this year the University Band had a full schedule of activities. It participated in all home football games and travelled with the team to Gettysburg for the game there. It was host to bands from Maryland, West Chester, and Bucknell. At the Washington and Lee game the bands from the high schools of Georgetown, Claymont, P. S. duPont, and Har- rington joined the University Band in the pre- game ceremonies. With the end of the football season the band turned to the study of serious music. A formal concert in Mitchell Hall and two on the campus in front of the Memorial Library gave students, faculty, and townspeople the opportunity of hearing fine concert band literature. The Uni- versity Band also made a one-day tour of Kent and Sussex Counties, where they presented three concerts. 137 R. O. T. C COLONEL RANDOLPH T.

After several years of steady growth, the fraternity decided to go national. Today, 45 chapters strong, it is international in scope, possessing a chapter in Canada. The local chapter, formerly the Delta Chapter of Sigma Tau Phi, became the Rho Deuteron Chapter of A E Pi when Sigma Tau Phi and Alpha Epsilon Pi merged in March of 1947. The fraternity ' s home on " Quality Hill " has been the scene of much action during the past two years. Both the interior and exterior have greatly improved through the concentrated efforts and hard work of the members. The men of A E Pi are extremely active in all phases of college life and hold key positions in activities such as publications, dramatics, intramurals, and student government. On the social side, to, the A E Pi ' s have not been inactive. House parties, variety affairs, and the highlights of the year, the traditional Inter-Fraternity formal and the A E Pi formal have kept the mem- bers busy.

Although the youngest organization of its kind on campus, this group made amazing progress. Not only has it been represented in all social, athletic, and other school activities, but it has also won recogni- tion by taking second place in the interfraternity play-bill and song-fest last year. The outstanding feature of the " Alpha Sigs " has been their spirit of cooperation and fellowship. They were the first fraternity on campus to initiate the idea of living together in the dormitories until a house could be obtained, and established their temporary headquarters in the north wing of Windsor Hall (better known as Barracks " B " ). Although formed as a local organization, the " Alpha Sigs " made definite plans for petitioning Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity, one of the oldest and largest national fraternities, for membership. These plans came to a conclu- sion the week-end of February 25, 1949, when Alpha Sigma Delta was officially installed as the Delaware Epsilon Rho Chapter of Alpha Tau Omega.

Delta Tau Delta was founded 40 years ago at Bethany College, Virginia, and belongs to that group o( organizations which pioneered the way for the army of present day fraternities. Today the fraternity embraces chapters in 38 states, the District of Columbia, and Canada. The groundwork for the present chapter at Delaware was begun in the fall of 1947 when a group of students, meeting with interested alumni and university officials, laid plans for the formation of the Delta Sigma Fraternity. The local fraternity took its place in campus activities with the cooperation of the seven established fraternities. Delta Tau Delta was petitioned for membership and Delta Sigma kept its fingers crossed through the months of waiting and investigation which followed. Then, on April 26, the long awaited telegram of acceptance was received from the Arch Chapter of Delta Tau Delta. Installation weekend will always be remembered by those who were a part of it. On Saturday night a large dance, to which the entire campus was invited, was held. On Sunday the beautiful initiation ceremony took place in Old College and was followed by a banquet at which the charter was presented to the group. Just about three months after this memorable occasion, and even before the excitement had subsided. Delta Tau Delta had moved into its new quarters at 230 East Main Street.

Alpha Xi Chapter, which was installed at the University of Delaware in 1923, has paralleled the growth of the National Organization and now boasts a comple- ment of 74 active members and 28 pledges. With its motto, " Alma Mater first, and Theta Chi for Alma Mater, " con- stantly in mind, the fraternity is striving, in conjunction with the other frater- nities on campus, to bolster school spirit and to activate participation in school affairs. By encouraging a wholesome and helpful chapter life, Theta Chi hopes to build a series of happy experiences which will become a part of one ' s recollections of college days at the University of Delaware. Its many social functions, topped by the Bowery Ball and the fraternity formal, have become important parts of that series of happy experiences. Although its members are all parts of the well-knit unit that is Theta Chi, they are individually active in all phases of school activities, whether they be things scholarly, athletic, dramatic, or literary.

Its inception there took place with the full coop- eration and approval of the president of the university, General Robert E. Lee. It is because of his assistance in the birth of the order that General Lee ' s name is so honored today among the men of Kappa Alpha. The ideals of the Order have their origin in the lofty standards of knight- hood, from which the motto, Dieu et les Dames, was adopted. In addition to this, great stress is laid upon the inherent principles of a fraternity, that is, on brotherhood and social development. It is significant to note that Kappa Alpha is the only one of the better known fraternities whose initiation cere- mony may be used in a Christian Church- When Beta Epsilon, the northernmost chapter of the Order, which has confined itself to Southern schools, was installed at the University of Delaware in 1904, it became the first Greek letter fraternity on campus. The original chapter house, now Purnell Hall, was relinquished in 1910 for larger quarters on West Main Street, where the chapter operated until 1946, when the present commodious quarters at 19 Amstel Avenue were acquired. At present the 60 members and 27 pledges of the Order here are repre- sented in every aspect of campus life, ranking high on the list of scholars, athletes, and officers of organizations, and take an important part in the social life of the University.

The expansion of enrollment at the Uni- versity of Delaware created a definite need for more social fraternities on campus, and it was this need that caused the introduction of one of the best known national fraternities to the Delaware campus. Pi Kappa Alpha, since its founding in 1868 at the University of Virginia, has grown into one of the largest and most influential of college fraternities. Its 92 active chapters from coast to coast have brought over 35,000 men into the brotherhood. Delta Eta Chapter has attempted to bring the spirit of Pi Kappa Alpha to Delaware. Moving right into campus affairs, the " Pi Kaps " have made a very creditable showing in all school activities. Their full social calendar of parties and dances is highlighted by the Pi Kappa Alpha formal. With this start in campus life, the Pi Kaps have felt the need for a chapter house as a central point for social and business activity. Plans for construc- tion are now being made and it is hoped that next year will see the erection of the house and the fulfillment of the wishes of the wearers of the " Shield and Diamond. " H.

These men were motivated by idealistic hopes to establish a society that would inculcate honor and mentally benefit the members. Since that humble inception the fraternity has become one of the country ' s largest and best known fraternities, with 103 chapters in 46 states, and over 45,000 living members. The Delta Kappa Chapter was founded at the University of Delaware in 1911 with Dr. George Harter, the president of Delaware College, as one of the 24 charter members. The capacious chapter house was erected in 1929 and is adjacent to what is now called the Field House. The objective of this chapter in relation to the University has been one of further development and betterment. The chapter has a well rounded and diversified group whose interests and talents are evident in practically all the activities on campus. Among this versatile group one finds thespians, scholars, athletes, social butterflies, and student leaders. The keen interest felt by the chapter for all campus affairs is displayed by the possession of the swimming, baseball and play festival trophies awarded by the Inter-Fraternity Council. Members of Delta Kappa Chapter hold the position of president of seven organizations or varsity teams. Many other members hold other positions prominent on campus. Sigma Nu also played an important part in the social activities of the past year. Major events were the Sigma Nu formal, the house party for freshman girls, the Halloween party, and the Christmas party. The last two of these were stand-outs that will long be remembered because of their elaborate decorations and costumes. ACTIVE MEMBERS AND PLEDGES Robert E. Snyder, Louis A. Scheu, Howard B Hitchens.

On commencement day, June 12, 1922, the formal corner stone laying exercises were held for the present Sig Ep house. In the forty-two years since its founding on the Delaware campus the fraternity has proved a vital part of the school scene in all fields — athletics, scholarship, and in the fraternal circle. Sigma Phi Epsilon is represented by intramural teams in football, basket- ball, Softball, swimming, bowling, and track. The fraternity won both the Inter-Fraternity Touch Football cup and the Intramural Touch Football Championship Plaque this past fall. The fraternity each year at Christmas time gives a party for under- privileged children in Newark; their social calendar includes the Inter- Fraternity dance in the fall and Sigma Phi Epsilon formal in the spring. The chapter publishes a monthly newspaper, THE DELALPHAN, dedicated to news of the active chapter and the alumni. Robert A. Burk is the editor of THE DELALPHAN, which is mailed to all Sig Ep graduates in all parts of the world.

The national fraternity was founded 43 years ago at the University of Miami and the Alpha Gamma Chapter was installed at Delaware in 1924. The most important event of the year for the chapter was the purchase of a house on College Avenue before the start of the new term. Through diligent work the members redecorated the entire house and now have a beautiful and comfortable home. Phi Kappa Tau strives to broaden the college life of the members by maintaining the traditions of high scholarship, genuine culture, and whole- some fellowship. Scholarship is emphasized strongly, but the members are encouraged, at the same time, to participate in extra-curricular activities, for it is well understood that a well-rounded program and diversified interests promote both the welfare of the individual and of the university. The chapter tries at all times to cooperate with the university of which it is an integral part and to promote the interests of the school. Members of the fraternity have participated in many campus organiza- tions and activities during the year. Phi Taus have been active in all phases of university sports, whether Varsity, Intramural, or Inter-Fraternity. Organi- zations such as Advanced Military, Student Government, honor societies, musical groups, and hobby clubs all have their Phi Tau members. Phi Kappa Tau feels that social activities are also an important part of college life. The big events of the year for the chapter in this line v ere the Inter-Fraternity formal and the Phi Kappa Tau formal. These affairs were supplemented by house parties, the annual Mardi Gras, the Founder ' s Day Banquet, and the Alumni Homecoming. MEMBERS William Allmond.

" — John Milton FOOTBALL William D. (Bill) Murray, Director of Health, Physical Education and Athletics at the Uni- versity of Delaware, has completed his sixth year as head coach of the Blue Hen football eleven. Arriving at Delaware in 1940 from a coaching position in North Carolina, Murray took over the grid reins from Steve Grenda and proceeded to lift the Hens out of their gridiron doldrums and into the limelight of the Eastern pigskin picture with a formula amazing in its simplicity. The popular Tar Heel first made gridiron headlines as a sophomore sensation at half- back for the Duke Blue Devils in 1928. As a senior, he was selected on the all-southern team and was recently named to the all-time Duke team. His first and only coaching job before coming to Delaware was at the Chil- dren ' s Home of Winston-Salem, N. C, and it was there that he developed the formula that has made him one of the most successful coaches in football. He coached three sports at the small orphanage, and his grid teams lost only eight games in his nine years as coach, and included one undefeated stretch of 36 games. His record at Delaware is envied by many a good coach. His 1940 team lost its first three games, but in 32 ensuing contests stretching into the 1947 season, his team won 31 and tied one. His overall record stands at 39 wins, 10 defeats and one tie. He has accomplished this through a combination of a little-used system, the double wing, with this past season ' s modifi- cations, and a thorough knowledge of funda- mentals. Murray ' s efforts toward a broader athletic program and increased facilities have popu- larized him with the student bodies, and his gridiron leadership has inspired a student out- look toward the schedule that hasn ' t been since the Hens almost upset Navy once in the dim, dark past. This season. Coach Murray was obliged to build a winning aggregate without the serv- ices of seven top-flight ' 47 performers, lost via graduation. Co-captains Jack Messick, and Walt Marusa; and Gerry Doherty, Joe Coady, Fred Sposato, Jim Buchanan, and Tony Storti were all absent when the initial role was taken; and the last five of these were backs of considerable ability. What reconstruction that 160 was necessary started behind the line, and this, plus the task of smoothing out some new offensive tactics, added up to some very press- ing problems. The Double-wing T Basically, the Hens used the same double- wing system, but it was altered sufficiently to warrant the tag " double-wing T. " The staff has converted the old quarterback-blocker into a ball-handling T formation quarterback, and the majority of the plays originate wit h the quarterback instead of the fullback. The wing- backs and fullback remain in the double-wing spots; and essentially the change takes the ball-handling, passing, and punting chores off the shoulders of the fullback, increases the play combinations, and makes for a faster development of plays. Playing before a capacity crowd at Wilming- ton Park, the gamecocks dropped the season ' s opener to a strongly improved P.M.C. eleven, 13-7, The outcome created much controversy about the saneness of the new plan, but opti- mistic followers stood by the Delaware brain- trust and its convictions. Highlights of the battle were Billy Cole ' s 23-yard touchdown sprint in the first period and Jack Gallagher ' s K.O. of the Cadet ' s Bob Copley, who had the misfortune of getting under the wrong punt. The starting Hen lineup consisted of Mariano Stalloni, Cole, Hank Paris, and sophomore Charlie Smith in the backfield, with ends Carroll Hauptle and Gallagher, tackles Bob Campbell (co-captain) and lack Miller, guards Gene Carrell (co-captain) and Ted Youngling, and center Bob Glisson composing the line. The following Saturday the Blue and Gold gridmen returned to the Wilmington battle- field, confident and self-assured, but were forced to accept loss to the powerful depth and skill of the mighty Terrapins from Mary- land after three periods of successful fight. The 21-0 victory margin of the Marylanders was a result of a devastating passing attack led by all-southern Vic Turyn ' s slingshot arm. All through the game, Delaware displayed a fighting aggressiveness which gave the crowd many thrills, but as was the story in the P.M.C. clash it was a passing assault which wasn ' t matched. The Hen line play was outstanding. On October 9, at approximately 10:00 p. m., the tide had turned. The Hens, rebounding from two straight setbacks, won their first game of the season by overpowering a strong West Chester State Teachers combine 19-0. It was the first of a win streak, which was not to be interrupted until the season ' s finale with Washington and Lee. Held to a scoreless first two periods, the Hens opened up the last half with a powerful run- ning attack which saw them roll up first downs, almost at random, and score three touchdowns. Midway in the first half Hank Paris set up Delaware ' s first scoring opportunity by run- ning a Ram punt back to the visitors ' 14-yard line. However, finding themselves up against a brick wall they were forced to yield the ball at the 10. The first tally came in the third period, re- sulting from a drive which started on the West Chester 32. It was Nine Stalloni, the Delaware workhorse and most consistent ground gainer, who broke the ice with a one-yard smash through center. Early in the last quarter, the Murraymen climaxed a 72-yar d drive with Billy Cole crossing the double-stripe on a nine- yard cutback. The final tally came in the wan- ing moments with the Hen subs still main- taining command. Fred Schenck intercepted a Ram pass on the visitors ' 20 to set it up. Charlie Smith, still directing traffic, then raced to the one after wriggling his way out of a trap far behind the scrimmage line. The fol- lowing play, Dick Wells took a handoff from Smith and slid into the end zone. The Bucknell Bisons were next to feel the charges of the rock-ribbed charges of the Hen forward wall. The Thundering Herd made several successful advances into Delaware territory, but when it came time to score, our line parked in their backfield and gave ground to nothing. However, the visitors were equally as stubborn to Delaware thrusts. The only touchdown registered was a result of a miscue by the Bison ' s safety man and some aggressive alertness by sophomore Jim Thomas on the opening kick-off of the second half. Francis Hill, kicking specialist from Newark, drove a low, wobbly ball which found its way to the enemy end zone. The visitors ' Jim Ostendarp, a bit amazed and confused, hesitated just long enough to allow Thomas to pounce on the oval and gain what proved to be the victory margin. Stan Bilski added the conversion to make the score 7-Q. Anyone who saw the " David and Goliath " show on October 30 will remember it as one 161 of the greatest victories a Delaware team has ever won. The big, mean, ornery mule breed from Allentown invaded Wilmington that after- noon with one objective in mind — to run the flock out of the park. And why not? Here was a Muhlenberg team who had rolled over Boston University,Youngstown, Scranton, and Gettys- burg, and lost only to high-powered Lafayette. Included in coach Floyd Scwartzwalder ' s ma- chine were such grid standouts as captain Eddie Sikorski, the steel-plated fullback, Jack Crider, the speed boy from Ohio pastures, Marty Binder, the Reading Ripper, and the terrible Russ Strait, 235 pounds of bruising, versatile backfield man. The Hens answer to this setup was more guts and determination. The teams fought to a stalemate in the first half. However, the Hens opened the third period with a combined passing and running attack which enabled them to gain the initia- tive. The first touchdown was a result of a drive which covered a total of 70 yards and ended with Nine Stalloni battering his way over from the two-yard line. Later in the same stanza Bill Murray intercepted a pass which gave Delaware possession on the Mules ' 28. The Hens lost no time in taking advantage of the situation and Stalloni again ripped through for nine yards and the final six-pointer. As the score read 12-0 against them and as the clock ticked away the final minutes, the Mules began a desperate thrust which took them to the Delaware 21, but the Mule back was broken and the attack failed. The Hens entered the game as two touch- down underdogs, but emerged the second team to beat Muhlenberg this year and the first to shut them out in 26 games. Lehigh last did the trick in 1945, 6-0. What more could be done for our beloved Allentown rivals? The Hens invaded Gettysburg the following Saturday and squeezed out a 33-27 decision over a spirited Battlefield eleven. Ross Sach ' s amazing passes nearly stymied the Hen de- fense, but excellent field-generalship on the part of Charlie Smith more than compensated for the Bullet ' s skill. With the score reading Sachs 27, Delaware 26, and three minutes to play, the Hens started their final drive. Hank Paris, Bill Nash, and Stalloni ground out yard- age to the enemy 18. The clock read less than a minute to go. Then Smith remembered his favorite throwing target, third-string end, Sam Macrum. The next play — touchdown. The strong armed Hen quarterback fired one into the end zone where Macrum, surrounded by Gettysburg defensive men, leaped high in the air and snared it. Delaware notched its fifth consecutive win from Rollins College, 14-13, on the southerners ' playground. Nine Stalloni ' s explosive bucks, Macrum ' s repeat clutch performance, and Stan Bilski ' s accurate toe were highlights of the show. Knacker Nash scored the first Delaware touchdown early in the second period. Bilski added the important conversion. Macrum added the second later when he pulled in an- other of Smith ' s passes in the end zone. Bilski again split the uprights and accounted for the winning margin. The Hens finished the season with another thriller in Wilmington Park. This time the nod went to the big Washington and Lee Generals, 21-14. Playing their last game for Delaware were twelve men who have wielded sizeable quills in the writing of our most brilliant grid- iron chapter. Carroll Hauptle, Ted Zink, and Ernie Mettenet, three unobtrusive but capable wingmen; Ray Ciesinski, the best-liked man on the team, doomed to obscurity by a continual string of injuries; Bob Glisson, the chunky cen- ter who waited three years for his chance; Jack Coulter and Carl Stalloni, two gritty reserve guards; Bill Otton, the number two guarter- back, who blossomed this year after three years as a blocker; Bill Nash, labeled by Murray as a " pleasure to a coach " ; and Bill Cole, unquestionably one of the greatest " little men " in Hen grid history. And in Bob Campbell and Gene Carrell, the University lost two of the finest leaders in its atheltic annals. Deprived of their due by roles in the line, they nevertheless made their pres- ence felt by the quiet type of leadership that makes co-captains effective. Their names will long be remembered on the steps of Old Col- lege in Newark. 162 TAYLOR MEMORIAL TROPHY PRESENTED TO CARROLL HAUPTLE Carroll (Hop) Hauptle, lanky senior from Lansdowne, Pennsylvania, was presented the first Taylor Memorial Award, following the completion of his outstanding football career at the University of Delaware. The trophy, symbolic of team play, is to be presented to a Delaware football player annually, in mem- ory of two brothers who were among Hen all- time gridiron-greats. Known as the Taylor Memorial Trophy, the award goes to the senior member of the foot- ball squad who, throughout his college career, has made the greatest contribution to team morale. The alumni whose memories are hon- ored are: J. Baker Taylor ' 08, and Harry V. Taylor ' 16, and in announcing the new award on the behalf of the Athletic Council, Coach W. D. Murray commented that either of the men could well have been the recipient of such an award at the close of their careers at Delaware. The award consists of a large trophy which will be retained at the University for display, with the names of the annual winners in- scribed. The trophy bears a picture of both Baker and Harry Taylor. The athletes them- selves receive an inscribed pen set. The award is being established by Mrs. J. Baker Taylor and Mrs. Harry V. Taylor, and their children, J. Baker Taylor, Jr., Dorothy Taylor Jones, and F. Martin Taylor. Selection of the recipient is made by a vote of members of the varsity football squad, the student managers, and the coaching and training staff. This is the first award to a Delaware player made in this manner, since the only other individual trophy presented is the president ' s cup, which is won on the basis of scholarship among the athletes. Al-: ' StoW ' ' ?AIAl9ksfc»»,« »ir;»» ' Sir - BASEBALL: MEN ' S SPORTS Last season the Delaware Nine under the capable leadership of Coach " Shack " Martin turned out an impressive record of eleven vic- tories and six losses. As usual, the season opened with a five-game journey through the South. Martin ' s boys had been hampered by the lack of sufficient practice due to the rainy spring weather, and in spite of the fact that everyone of their opponents was on a winning streak, The Blue Hens returned with a record of two wins out of five. Back home again, Delaware ' s batsmen in- augurated their season ' s opener on the home diamond by a crushing 13-1 victory over Lehigh. Bill Roy turned in a masterful six- hitter as Larry O ' Toole helped Delaware ' s cause by blasting a grand slam home run in the seventh inning. Joe Ted Pennock shut out LaSalle, 6-0, and thereby chalked up his first college victory. The skinny right-hander from Kennett Square gave up only two hits and three walks, while striking out ten of the previously undefeated Explorers. Haverford was the Hen ' s next victim, being able to get ' only three hits while striking out thirteen times against brilliant pitching by Thorpe. Jack Messick sealed the Mainliners ' fate with three singles in four times at bat, as they went down before the Delaware on- slaught, 6-1. The Temple Owls finally stopped the Hens by bringing out a mound ace by the name of Reber, who proved to be just too much for Hens; Temple 5, Delaware 1. A pitching duel between Coakley and Bill Roy was the main feature of a game with Washington College. Roy pitched a fine game, but erratic fielding spelled defeat for the Hens by a score of 3-1. The Hens really had a Field Day as they met Johns Hopkins and blasted out 22 runs on 15 hits while Roy and Mayer on the mound for Delaware limited their Baltimore hosts to 5 safeties and a single run. Jim Gilson was the big bat for the Hens, with six hits, includ- ing a double and a home-run. Haverford again fell victims to Delaware bats to the tune of a 7-3 score on a come-back. Jimmy Collins went the distance for the Hens, giving up only 3 hits while striking out 6. Alumni Day featured a big game on Frazer Field between Delaware and P.M.C. Billy Roy started on the mound for the Hens, but had to be replaced by Jim Collins after a 3-run P.M.C. outburst. Collins held the visitors down for the remainder of the game as his team-mates poured on a 13-hit attack to go on and win, 9-5. VARSITY CROSS COUNTRY Under the capable guidance of Coach Ken Steers, the Delaware cross country team opened its season on October 9 against the Franklin and Marshall harriers at Lancaster, where the Hens found themselves on the short end of a 19-42 score. After this initial setback, the Delaware team won their next two meets from Gettysburg (23-34) and Johns Hopkins (25-30). The West Chester Rams broke the local ' s streak by beating them 15-50 on the West Chester course. The Blue and Gold har- riers finished their season with a 19-36 victory over Albright. Bruce Sampson was elected captain of the 1948 team. Practically the whole 1948 varsity team will be on hand next year, and along with this year ' s strong freshman squad. Coach Steers should field another for- midable array of talent. 165 FRESHMAN CROSS-COUNTRY This was an exceptionally good year for the Freshman cross-country team. The Chicks de- feated Johns Hopkins Freshmen, Salisbury State Teachers Varsity, the Naval Academy Prep School, and Albright J.V.; lost to the Delaware Varsity, the Kings College Varsity, West Chester Freshmen, and placed seventh in the M.A.S.C.A.C. at Muhlenberg. The West Chester meet, which was lost by one point, was the season ' s heartbreaker. Captain Stan Hughes was undefeated in dual meets and wound up the season with 84 points. Tom Fouracre, Joe Rashti, Bill McCauley, Vito Pavia, Bill Conway, and Don Cherr all turned in excellent performances and were awarded numerals. Home meets this year were run over a 2-3 8 mile course at the Newark Coun- try Club. The contest time on this course was 13:58.5 turned in by Stan Hughes against the Naval Academy Prep School. With almost all of this year ' s team reporting back for varsity duty next fall, Delaware looks like a strong possibility in the 1949 M.A.S.C.A.C. SOCCER— 1948 The Delaware Soccer squad under its new coach, Whitey Burnham, turned in a record of three victories, six defeats and one tie. The team displaying spirit and determination un- der their capable mentor tackled several of the strongest soccer teams in the East includ- ing Navy, Bucknell, and West Chester. The Blue Hen hooters, handicapped by the loss of experienced players, found themselves weak at the half-back post, particularly after Dave Scott was injured in the 3-0 victory over Wash- ington College, and was unable to play for the remainder of this, his last season at Dela- ware. However, the booters, paced by Captain Earl Ewing at wing, Dick Murray at center- halfback, Kenny Walls at fullback, Carl Walbeck at inside and Ed Homey at goal, played a hustling brand of ball that resulted in victories over Stevens Tech, Washington College, and Western Maryland. Coach Burnham will have the following letter- men returning next season: Dick Murray, Carl John, Bill Colona, Kenny Walls, Jules Holfstem, Carl Walbeck, James Dedman, Earl Ewing, James Cann and captain-elect Ed Homey.

T. 9 2 Bucknell 7 BASKETBALL The 1948-49 edition of the Fighting Blue Hen Basketball Team may not be remembered as the most victorious team in our alma mater ' s history, but it will certainly be remembered as one of the smallest. Coach Joe Brunansky ' s starting quintet — Bob Gregory, Jim McFadden, Ace Hoffstein, and Co-captains Bill Nash and Bill Cole — averaged less than 5 ' 10 " , with only Nash standing as high as 5 ' 11 " . This height disadvantage was partly compensated for by the relentless hustle of Cole, Hoffstein, and Mc- Fadden, and partly by the tall sophomore reserve strength. But in the great game of basketball, nothing takes the place of altitude, and the season ' s record of 5 wins against 15 defeats proves it. For the second consecutive year the Dela- ware basketeers journeyed west during Christ- mas vacation to meet a pair of strong clubs from Toledo University and Lawrence Tech. They completed the western circuit with 2 losses and no victories, after losing by scores of 46-63 and 48-66 respectively. Ten players made the trip. In their Southern Division, Middle Atlantic Basketball Conference play, the Hens wound up with a record of 2 wins and 8 losses, but were credited with an extra pair of victories over Drexel because the latter used an ineli- gible player, placing the official record at 4 wins and 6 losses. This was good enough to tie Haverford for third place in the final Con- ference standings, and also to compete in the league playoffs at the massive Swarthmore Field House. Delaware won 1 out of its 2 playoff games and thereby walked off with second place, with P.M.C. taking the crown. " Phantom " Bob Gregory headed the season scoring race with a total of 185 points on 69 field goals and 47 fouls. Gregory ' s average of 10.28 points per game was followed by the court general, Reds McFadden, who averaged 9.36 counters per contest; McFadden aggre- gated 159 joints in his 17 games. Cole, Hoff- stein, and Nash followed in that order with totals of 150, 131, and 118 points respectively. The reserves, namely, Frank Albera, Jim Thomas, Fred Kelleher, Dick Grossman, and Joe Kwiatkowski, did not score as heavily as the regulars, but their timely defensive per- formance was valuable. All stand over 6 ' 1 " and, with the exception of Grossman, are all sophomores. Three of Coach Brunansky ' s regulars, Cole, Gregory, and Nash, are seniors and will be graduated in June. SWIMMING Stealing the spotlight on the winter sports scene was a Hen swimming team that romped over seven of their nine opponents and placed well up in two conference splashes to give Harry Rawstrom ' s mermen their finest post- war season. The sudden surge of the swim- mers has not been the result of a schedule shift or a sudden influx of talent. Rawstrom and his mermen merely reaped this year the fruits of a tough conditioning policy that began back in 1946 when most of this year ' s squad were inexperienced yearlings or sophomores. The present group has broken the post-war soil, and Hen teams are now beginning to reap the crop. The opening practice gun was sounded early in September, and the Birds were in top shape by the first meet against West Chester. They topped the Teachers, 48-27, and a week later journeyed to Lancaster to top the Franklin and Marshall mermen, 49-26. The following Satur- day saw the Birds at their physical and psy- chological best as they came up against the highly-rated University of Virginia mermen. Murray Campbell, Jim Baird, and Frank Craig set things off on the right foot by winning the opening event, the medley relay, in the record breaking time of 3:16.8, smashing the old stand- ard of 3:18.8 set in 1941. From there it was an easy 52-23 romp. The Birds made it four in a row by romping over the Gettysburg team at the opening the second term, but then ran into their first bit of trouble on the following weekend. Swarthmore, a perennial trouble-maker to Hen swimmers, topped the Hens, 39-36, winning the meet on the final relay, and winning the event itself by a few inches. Temple kept the Birds on the canvas for another week with a 38-37 victory on the following Saturday, but those were to be the only dual losses that Raw- strom ' s swimmers were to suffer. They came back hard in their next meet to completely submerge Drexel, 56-19, and it was ; ' A. . 5 ® ■j BAV kf p ' ' " fl l in this meet that the 400 yard relay standard was tied. Craig, Jack Smith, Hugh Dougherty, and John Bishop covered the distance in 3:54.7, which was exactly the same time that has stood as a record for thirteen years. Lafayette came next, and the Hens took this one, 50-25, and then began priming for the traditional clash with the tough Lehigh mermen. To say that they won would be doing an injustice to Rawstrom ' s tactical ability. The popular ex- Springfield star, faced with a losing proposi- tion on paper, juggled his lineup, threw a dis- tance man into the sprints, a backstroker into the diving, and a substitute into the back- stroke, winning the meet, 38-37, before the Engineers crack final relay team could get into action. The Middle Atlantic meet followed, and the Hens placed third here to F M and Lehigh, although a disqualification after winning the medley relay didn ' t help things too much. They acquitted themselves well on the following weekend in the traditionally tough Eastern Collegiate meet at Rutgers by finishing in a tie for fifth with the University of Pittsburgh among the thirteen competing colleges. Rut- gers, Seton Hall, Temple, and Penn State fin- ished in that order ahead of the Hens. It would be hard to single out individuals in pinning down the formula for success. Co- captains Craig and Smith performed through- out in yeoman style, and their leadership will be missed next year. Scheduled to step into the captaincy is Bauduy Grier, and the jack- rabbit from Wilmington High School has earned the distinction. Besides shattering all his previous pool and school records against Virginia with an amazing 103.9 performance, he continued undefeated in dual competition, and retained his Middle Atlantic crown with little trouble. While on the subject of records, it would be well to note that the medley mark was assaulted again in the Lehigh meet. This time it was Lew Ward, Bill Brady, and Jack Smith who rubbed out the mark, setting a new one of 3:15.5. The two entirely different med- ley trios gives a clue as to the Hen depth this year. Ward will be missed as much as the co- captains. The gritty red-head from New Jersey climaxed a long climb in his senior year to become the top backstroker on the squad, and the runner-up in this event in both conference meets. Murray Campbell will be back to hold down this spot along with Dick Murray. Hugh Dougherty, a commendable performer in the distance events, will also be back, and Jim Baird, Bill Brady, and Jim Crumlish insure our breast stroke strength. John Bishop, the team ' s crack sprinter and point scorer, should be our belwether again next fall, and he ' ll have help from Fred Lewis, Guy Tracy, and Gary Carpenter. The freshman team, although shorthanded with scholastic and physical difficulties through the latter part of the season, won three of their five meets, and finished third in the freshman relays in both conference meets. Marv Eggert, a backstroker, and Hugh Miller, a breast- stroker, seem sure to crack the starting lineup next year, and George Ester, Charley Lloyd, Don Bardo, Tom Clements, Taylor Simpson, Larry Miller, Jim Jones, and Bill Jasinski should provide plenty of depth.

Although losing all but one of the matches, the matmen fought harder this sea- son than ever before and succeeded in giving stiff competition to all opponents. After suffer- ing a 34-0 defeat to a strong Johns Hopkins team and a 29-3 defeat to Haverford, the groaners gave a good bit of competition to Bucknell but were unable to win the match. Following three more defeats at the hands of Swarthmore, Drexel, Gettysburg, the matmen came through with an overwhelming victory over P.M.C. to the tune of 31-3 and dropped the last match to Lafayette. The team placed sixth in the M.A.S.C.A.C. Tournament with Captain Ted Youngling taking second place in the heavyweight class and Tommy Runk plac- ing second in the 145 lb. class. Youngling, an excellent wrestler, was undefeated in all of the dual meets and was the nucleus of a strong combination made up of such profi- cient wrestlers as Paris, Snyder, Scott, Winter, and Firmani, all of whom will form the back- bone of next season ' s squad. VARSITY TRACK Due to the installation of the Freshman rule and the loss of several key members through injuries and graduation, the 1948 edition of the Blue Hen track team was unable to win any of its five dual meets. The Delaware thin- clads dropped successive decisions to Lehigh (46-80), Johns Hopkins (45-81), Swarthmore (43-83), Franklin and Marshall (48-78), and Muhlenberg (41-84). The most outstanding per- formances of the season were turned in by Frank Lanza, who won nine out of ten 100 and 220 yard dashes in dual meet competition. Delaware placed sixteenth in the M.A.S.C.A.C. championships on the strength of Walt Bartoshesky ' s tie for second in the pole vault. The team was under the able guidance of Ken Steers and captained by Oscar Roberts. The 1948 track letter wmners were as follows: Frank Lanza, James Holden, Hank Cofer, James Riley, Oscar Roberts, Bruce Sampson, Jack Gallagher, and Walt Bartoshesky. This season. Coach Steers will build the team around the returnees from last year ' s varsity and the Sophomores who were mem- bers of last year ' s strong Freshman team. The 1949 schedule includes five dual meets, the Penn Relays, and the M.A.S.C.A.C. champion- ships. O Cj in •JA.- f I 173 GYMNASTICS Coach Roy Rylander ' s 1948-1949 edition of the Flying Blue Hens turned in their first vic- tory in varsity competition since the introduc- tion of the sport to the Delaware campus a year ago. Faced with the task of competing against the strongest and most experienced teams of the country, the Delaware men proved themselves in contests with Army, Navy, and Temple. Captain Bob Downing turned in the top indi- vidual record by amassing a total of 58.5 points. Other letter-winners were George Schaen, Jim McGee, Lee LeCates, Ray Wilhelm, Leon Hart and Joe Miller. All of these men with the exception of Downing will return next year with George Schaen, Captain-elect for the 1949- 1950 season. 174 ' ■! .!( 175 TENNIS During the 1948 tennis season the Blue Hen netmen turned in a record of four victories against five defeats. Captain Bob Kirkland played in the number one position, and ex- captain Bud Haines held down number two. These two fine performers drew some pretty- tough opposition, encountering the cream of nine colleges. Bob v on three of his matches and Bud took over four of his opponents. As a doubles team Bob and Bud were a treat to watch as they won six of their nine matches. Dick Ryan was our number three man, and Bob Dunlap, this year ' s captain, performed in the number four spot. In doubles competition Ryan and Dunlap were undefeated in the five matches they played together. John Hovsepian, a five-time winner, played the number five position, and Verdell Short was very effective as our sixth man. Walt Robinson and Al Perry played some very capable doubles for the Hens. The season began on a rather disastrous note with two decisive 9-0 losses to the very proficient Swarthmore and Haverford ma- chines, followed by a 7-2 defeat in a well played match with St. Joseph ' s. Delaware broke the ice with a convincing 8-1 victory over Washington College and then dropped a close 5-4 decision to Western Maryland. Franklin and Marshall was defeated 6-3, and Ursinus fell before the Blue and Gold 7-2. Drexel proved too strong for our boys, win- ning 6-3. The final match was perhaps the most exciting of the season, Delaware defeat- ing Temple 5-4. After Short tied the singles at three all with a long 8-10, 7-5, 6-4 victory over Levitt the doubles teams of Kirkland-Hoines and Ryan-Dunlap came through to give us the victory. The match with West Chester was rained out. Haines and Short, have been graduated but Coach Jones will have five men back from last year ' s first team when practice is called this spring. There are a few newcomers in pros- pect, and with a little luck the team should have a fairly good season. Two new all-weather courts will provide the team with the first opportunity for a real pre- season practice. ' p 177 LA CROSSE TEAM In its second season of competition, the Uni- versity of Delaware LaCrosse Team tackled a full schedule of seven gamesv including a trip to Charlottesville, Virginia, and Durham, N. C, to play the nationally famous Virginia and Duke LaCrosse squads. The record shows that the squad lost four games while winning three. The victories came at the expense of Franklin and Marshall, who bowed twice to the Blue Hens, and to West Chester State Teachers College. The 1949 season will find the LaCrosse team working under their new coach, Milt Roberts, a former All-American at Johns Hopkins. Coach Roberts will have the following men returning to participate in the 1949 schedule: Leo Mullin, Robert Scheckinger, Gordon Bierman, William Thistlewai te, Dick Dantel, Bill Murray, George Snyder, Carl Stalloni, Robert Burk, Thurman Adams, Robert Kelleher, Jack Daley, Don Swan, Dwain Watkins, Larry Wimbrow, Pop Ritter, and Dave Snyder. % - 5 a ' ft.

The council consists of a student representative from the dormitory group, commuter group, Newark resident group, and the fraternity group. The drawing of rules and regulations, the drafting of schedules, and deciding on the eligibility of players, are the main duties of the council. Throughout the year, approximately five hundred male students participate in football, basketball, handball, boxing, wrestling, volleyball, swimming, golf, and softball. At the end o f each year, awards are presented to the outstanding athlete and the outstanding athletic team based upon an evaluated point system. OFFICERS President HERB BALICK Vice-President WALTER ELLIS Secretary LAWSON CORDING Director ROY RYLANDER 180 WOMEN ' S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION This year of 1948-49, as in the past, the Physical Education Department for women offered their facilities and equipment under faculty supervision to the Women ' s Athletic Association for the intramural sports program. At Delaware, the intramural program for women replaces an intercollegiate program so that more women students will have an oppor- tunity to participate rather than the chosen few of varsity sport. Under the able leadership of W.A.A. officers — President Jean Cameron, Vice-President Sally Wooleyhan, Secretary Mary Frances Gordy and Treasurer Ruth Clement in conjunction with the faculty spon- sorship of Miss Maryann Waltz — a highly or- ganized program in hockey, soccer, volleyball, basketball, swimming, softball, tennis and la- crosse was constructed. The latter sport, lacrosse, was initiated as an intramural sport by the women for the first time. Participation was extended by the Freshman class, as they swelled the already growing ranks of upperclassmen. Each class was rep- resented by at least one team in practically every sport. This year ' s sports for women was a success- ful project. It is hoped that next year ' s pro- gram will be even more successful. We are very sorry to see the Seniors of the Class of ' 49 leave since they have been a mainstay of the athletic program since they entered as Fresh- men in 1945. We will miss them on the field and floor and, yes, even in the locker rooms. 182 HOCKEY Although the hockey season got off to a rather sluggish start, hockey manager Judy Koller publicized the opening practices and soon a sizable group turned out at practice for the coming tournament got under way. Five teams were organized, one from each class and two from the Freshman class, which had a very large turnout. The tournament began on November 4 and continued until November 18. Each team played one game with each of the other teams, with the exception of the Freshman teams which did not play each other. The competi- tion was keen and enthusiasm ran high as the tournament progressed. The Junior class finally emerged victorious with the Freshman B team as runner-up. A post-tournament game be- tween the Juniors and a combined Freshman team ended in a scoreless tie. Many of U. of D. hockey enthusiasts supple- mented their intramural play by competing on various teams in the Delaware Field Hockey Association league tournament, which enjoyed its second successful season in Wilmington. Miss Waltz, instructor of physical education at Delaware, is aptly handling her second term as President of the DFHA. She has been the chief instigator of interest in the association for the Delaware girls, and played this season on the team composed entirely of U. of D. girls, known as the Blue Chicks. Many of the girls were chosen to play on the All-Delaware team which travelled to Swarthmore to take part in the Middle Atlantic Tournament. 183 VOLLEYBALL Volleyball came into its own at the conclusion of the hockey season. Volleyball manager, " Mike " Phillips, gathered together the girls who were mterested in volleyball and they collected their teams for each class and elected a captain and manager for each team. The class managers were, for the Seniors Pat Nester; Juniors, Laura Lange; Sophomores, Esther Walls; Freshmen, Helen Huida. Practice sessions were held and then a round robin tournament was held to determine the champions for volleyball. Each team played the other class teams once which totaled to three games apiece. The Freshman squad came out on top with two wins and one tie while the Juniors, a close second place, had two wins and one loss to their credit. Volleyball season, a short one at best, could be much more interesting and exciting if more girls would participate as for instance. Senior Manager, Pat Nester, who has never left volleyball down by having played since her Freshman year. If more of us would be as faithful as Pat, our volleyball season at Delaware would be a thing to remember. 184 185 AQUATIC CLUB Realizing the need for a group of talented swimmers who could give demonstrations of correct form in strokes and who could also put on water ballets and pageants, an aquatic club was formed by a group of girls interested in swimming as a recreational sport. The purpose is to perfect synchronized swimming, diving and stroke variations as well as to develop individual swimming skills. Sometime in the spring a water ballet will be presented in the Women ' s Pool, with about twenty advanced swimmers participating. AQUATIC CLUB OFFICERS President Charlotte Hedlicka Vice-President Toni Heyl Secretary-Treasurer Sue Cecil Faculty Advisor Miss Maryonn Waltz 186 " To live content ivith s?nall means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, wealthy not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, uith open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never. In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony. " — William Channing MoAf :baf fm The 1948 May Day festivities were presided over by the Queen, Florence Reynolds, and her court. The court consisted of: Dolores Tondat, Elizabeth Trainer, Eleanor Greer, Eileen Wise, Joan Marshall, Jane Gordon, Carol Black, Ruth Rosen, Mary Elizabeth Pettit, Rosalie Shaeffer, Jane Hoch, Diane Kipp, and Jane Scott. The theme of the day was that of a country fair which was carried through by colorful dances which were composed by the girls them- selves, in their respective physical education classes. 190 f945-46 Settee 7Vc €iA iJiccC da A ficC all UK itc% . . . 70 at frUcc CeauUf OHt 4 4 0 AC% tAU Sect UAC ct(y ct Uw 7 €UccKt 0 t e iU 2 ? cCacf t(Ul a td cut cu% » «» .

The preparation of copy, the ordering of engravings (or artwork in the use of photo- lithography), the seleaion of proper binding materials, the choice of paper, ink, and other materials all vitally affect the appearance of the final book. With all these production problems to be con- sidered, the editor of a yearbook is wise to consult a competent publishing firm so as to be assured that his editorial ability will be reflected in a book of physical beauty and durability. Such a pub- lishing firm is the Hambleton Company. Housed in one of the finest plants on the Eastern coast are the men and machines which, together, produce high-quality printing economically, beautifully, and quickly by either photo-lithography or letterpress methods.
