THE 1955 BLUf Hfn ■ s.. l..-;■r ? %• PRESENTED BY UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE NEWARK, DELAWARE We Pay Tribute to DR. J. FENTON DAUGHERTY Many of us in the Class of 1953 remember, early in our college career, an office in Brown Hall, where we could go for an airing of our gripes, solutions to our problems, a man ' to-man talk. The affable man behind the desk was Dr. J. Fenton Daugherty, Dean of Men. As Dean of Men from 1943 to 1932. Dr. Daugherty retained his standing as Professor of Physics, a post in which students re- member him since he began teaching at the University in 1929. Dr. Daugherty, a graduate of Dickinson College, is a charter member and is presently secretary-treasurer of the Delaware Beta Sigma chapter of Omicron Delta Kappa, one of many organizations to which he belongs. In recognition of his twenty-six years of service to the University of Delaware, as Dean of Men, faculty member, participant m campus activities, and friend to so many students, we dedicate this book to Dr. J. Fenton Daugherty. DR. J. FENTON DAUGHERTY Professor of Physics fOREUlOy What have your four years at the University of Dela- ware meant to you? The editors of the 1933 Blue Hen have no way of knowing. We wish we did. We wish it were pos ' sible to bind within the covers of this yearbook the individual keys which would unlock your happiest memories of college life. Since this is not possible, we have tried to present as fully as were able a pictorial record of the outstanding events of your senior year. We have tried to keep ahve photographic- ally the pep raUies, the dances, the athletic contests, the fun and comparatively carefree hours of your undergraduate days. Your yearbook may mean little to you now. However, we hope that if you grow nostalgic as you grow older, you will get a kick out of renewing college acquaintances via the Blue Hen.

The number of former students and graduates in the Association has reached the nine- thousand mark. One of the projects of the Alumni Association is the publication of the alumni magazine, Thcf University 7 lews. which the Class of 195 5, as well as " other old grads, " " will find in its mail four times a year. In this way, all graduates can keep abreast of all happenings at the University. Other tasks that the Alumni group undertake are: Maintaining records on former students, spon- soring activities through the regional clubs and chapters of the Association, and aiding in the con- ducting of the Annual Development Fund for the benefit of the University.

ARM Dean of School of Engineering HS Tzi ' enty-tliree MEMORIAM Dr. Allen P. Colburn With the death of Dr. Allan P. Colburn, Provost of the University, this institution sustained a great loss. Not only did Dr. Colburn give generously of his services in the lield of education, but the influence of much of his work was felt on the civic and national levels also. In his capacity as Chairman of Delaware ' s Department of Chemical Engineering, he was responsible for de- veloping a wide research program in cooperation with industr ' and the government. As assistant to the Presi- dent of the University of Delaware in 1947, he contrib- uted to the development and supervision of the univer- sity ' s research program. In 19 0 he served as acting president of the university until Dr. John A. Perkins was appointed to that post, at which time Dr. Colburn was made Provost. In this position he continued his efforts in research, extending his program into the fields of social science, and human relations, and international affairs. He was instrumental in the development of the university ' s Institute of Inter-American Study and Re- search and the Institute of Human Relations. Lately, he had become interested in education and the improvement of teaching. During World War II, Dr. Colburn worked with various government agencies in assisting in the direction of research work at the University of Delaware and elsewhere. In collaboration with Dr. B. F. Dodge of Yale, Dr. Colburn prepared the curriculum of chemical engineering for the army. Among his awards were the Professional Progress Award in Chemical Engineering and the Walker Award for publications in that field. Dr. Colburn, designated one of the foremost chemists in the United States by Dr. Perkins, was the author of many publications, papers, technical articles and several textbooks. He was a mem- ber of a number of scientific and educational organizations, including the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, American Chemical Society, National Education Asso- ciation, American Society for Engineering Education, American Association of University Professors, Ameri- can Association for the Advancement of Science, and the Newcomer Society of England. Honorary societies of which Dr. Colburn was a member include Phi Kappa Phi, Phi Lambda Upsilon, Tau Beta Pi, and Sigmi Xi. He was active in the American Red Cross, Amencan Cancer Society, and the Anti-Tubcrculosis Society. His life, devoted to efforts in areas of human activity, provided, and will continue to provide, an excellent ex- ample of a truly well-rounded, dedicated person.

Prendenl MICKIE BLAINE Vice President DEAN STEELE Recording Secretary Your Student Government Associa tion has brought the student body closer to and has cooperated with the ad- ministration of the University since its estabhshment in 1946. In 19i4o5, under the leadership of President David Menser and Faculty Advisor Dean John E. Hocutt, this year ' s SGA has continued in its effort to accommo- date student needs. One of its first material achievements was seen in 1947, when the Student Union was horn. Keeping this popular meeting place running has con- tinued to be one of the chief functions of the organiza- tion. Standing Committes of the SGA are the Student Union Committee, the Elections Committee, and the Finance Committee. Other committees are formed as needed and are composed of students and faculty members or of students alone. The SGA also sponsors social events which it under- takes in cooperation with other organizations on campus. The Homecoming Game attractions are arranged with the aid of ODK, alumni, and Cheerleaders. The SGA also worked along with the University Religious Council to make Religious Emphasis Week a success and to in- sure its observance each year. This year as well as in years before, the organization has provided the music for semi-formal and formal dances for the enjoyment of the student body and the faculty. These dances include the Har -est Hop, the Christmas Dance, and the Junior Prom.

Ill t heir power to make this an unforgettable year, one to really top off a i ood education. Things started off with Dr. and Mrs. Perkins ' Senior Tea in Warner, early in the fall. A little later, the class dispersed the beliefs about blase Seniors by sponsoring one of the year ' s best pepfests and following it right up with a dance, to the smooth strains of Freddy DiFurio ' s music. Meanwhile, everyone was caught in the whirl of studying and extra-curriculars. Always a leading group in affairs about the quad- rangle, this year ' s Seniors participated especially actively in campus activities, from varsity football to Biology Club, to Delapem. The long ' dreaded student teaching sessions were undertaken, and nearly everyone agreed that they weren ' t so bad after all! The Home Management House played hostess to a constant stream of Home Ec majors, and the ROTC department, having separ- ated the men from the hoys, prepared a smart bunch of cadets for Uncle Sam. Early in the second semester, the time came for ordering gradu- ation announcements, and the Class of ' 55 realised that that time was, indeed, drawing near. Fin.illy Senior Weekend arrived, and, on June second, the gala farewell dance was held in Wilmington ' s Gold Ballroom. White Crystal Beach was the scene of a huge picnic the ne. t day, and that night saw the 55 ' ers throwing a party at the Italian-American Club. Sunday passed in a chaos of diplomas, caps and gowns, and good-byes, as the Seniors, now graduates, au revoired their friends and Dela- ware, after four unsurpassed years. DICK SAUNDERS President MARTHA THOMAS Vice-President GAIL CONWAY Secretary DICK KNOLL Treasurer I ' ijty-ntHc Junior Class Officers ALLEN FERVER President Wondering how their lirst two years of college could have passed so quickly, the Juniors returned to these ivied halls to em- bark on another year crammed with many pursuits, intellectual and otherwise. Killing two birds, they initiated both their own program of activities and the football season by sponsoring the first pepfest in September. Following the pepfest, the doors of Carpenter Field House were thrown open and the music of Clyde Bessick ' s combo poured forth, as a dance was held, successful both financially and socially. The payment of dues was introduced for the first time in the class ' s histor ' this year, in anticipation of a big Senior Weekend in 19i6. In January came one of the high water marks of the class ' s career, the Junior Musical. The Juniors exhibited their theatrical skill behind the footlights in a varied but unified evening ' s enter- tainment, spoofing the upper crust in a series of skits and acts de- picting " High Society. " The event was chalked up as a big success for the class, and a much talked of hit up and down the campus, from Brown to Tur ' ey. Before anyone had quite realised it. spring had arrived and books began to gather dust. Each day was more inviting than the last and tennis, sunbathing, and baseball took priority over Phys Chem, Psych, and Shakespeare. Easter vacation saw many Juniors lolling on the Florida sands. The combined Junior Prom and May Dance heralded the arrival of May on campus. The lush decorations and dreamy music of this last dance of the year created memories that won ' t be soon forgotten. And suddenly June was here, bringing packing, finals, and cries of " See you in September — don ' t forget to write! " The end of a busy year — but could it have been more fun? Impossible! VINCE LANDI Vice-President LEE SEEMET Secretary M.ARY KALEEL Treasurer Sixty Sophomore Class Officers " " Cm on, Lets " hear you sing! " Turnabout was fair play, as the lorJiy class of " 57 assumed its new status on campus. Was it possible that one year ago they had been cringing under those blue and gold dinks? " " Retribution " was the byword in September, as the Sophs recognized their authority and upheld the old tradition. The notorious Court was called into session, and freshmen infractions punished b ' ingenious methods. These downtrodden souls soon had their comeback, however, as they trounced their tormentors on Field Day and proclaimed their new freedom by tossing the dinks away. Thereafter, life settled down to a more serene pace and the Sophs diverted their energy in other directions. Brotherhood now- flourished between the two classes, as was evidenced by the joint collaboration on the Christmas Formal, and " a good time was had by all. " Prior to this, the Sophs undertook the arrangements for a Pep- Fest and record dance given during football season. They lent their support to the team as well, for being one of the largest classes, made up a significant rooting section. Si:e had its other advantages too, for what Sophomore could drift into the Scrounge, library, or walk dow-n campus without spotting one of his classmates? Of course, when January rolled around, these friendly faces all went into retreat temporarily. The Sophomores had obligations to fulfill, and the " wise fools " took to the books. There was a reputation at stake, but some emerged from the Final Ordeal with fewer illusions. Undaunted, the Sophs took off on their second lap. The arrival of the official " 57 bla-ers marked a high spot in the year for many a girl, who conformed to class tradition by sporting her new jacket on that cold day in February. Even afterwards, the " 5 7 ' s " stood out from the rest with Old College for a background. Why not The 57 " s are distinctly an outstanding group! TOMMY THOMAS President BILL LORD Vice-President CAROLYN PHILLIPS Secretary HENRY WEIL Treasurer Si.vtv-one Freshman Class Officers LARRY MURRAY President The members of the Class of 1958 commenced their college career in a manner no different from that of any other Delaware freshmen of recent years. The dinks were a common sight hobhing around campus accompanied by huge name tags from September 1 to October 22, when the Sophomore class forfeited Field Day to the new university members. At their first class meeting where they adopted a constitution, they began plans for their first project, deco- rations for the Christmas Dance, which they co-sponsored with the sophomore class. Their responsibilities included the furnishing and constiTJCtmg of the decorations for the walls, the bandstand, and the picture corner. Approximately one hundred twenty-five of the boys became fraternity men during second semester. The girls were proud to have had a representative on the court of the H(imecoming Queen. Plans were well underway by the end of March for the freshmen-sponsored informal dance on April 16. An unusually active class in extra- curricular activities, many " 58-ers were members of various clubs and committees. From all evidences, it looks as though there will be a capable group to carr ' on at U. of D.

But the real scurrj ' ing begins in September. Meetings are held at which definite assignments are made and the con- fusion begins. Ads must be gotten, sports events covered, and all religious, social, and honorary organizations must be contacted and their main events and aims reported. Write-ups, pictures, deadlines: all this is part of the rou- tine work. The BLUE HEN must be on the press in time. Finally the day comes; all is done, and sighs of relief are heard from all members of the staff from top to bottom. Then comes May, and the finished product is given out to the student body. The staff holds its annual banquet to give their work the sendoff. Problems of the year ' s work are forgotten in the knowledge that each has done his best and has made the 1955 yearbook the greatest ever. Each member looks forward to next year, and wishes of success are in order for the 1956 BLUE HEN. MARY LARKIN Literary Editor DAVE FEHSENFELD Photography Editor LIZ STAFFORD Women ' !

The magazine is, of course, VENTURE. At the present time VENTURE haa a single issue, a good deal of hope and some plans for the future. VENTURE would like to be able to print the best of what is produced on campus, the best poetry, the best cartoons, the best of everything in between. Such a magazine , we feel is a virtual necessity on any campus as an outlet for students ' imaginations, ideas and senses of humor. The highest aim of a university is, afterall, the production of creative people, people who are productive and useful, whether the product is an antibiotic, a bridge or an idea. VENTURE can hardly produce an antibiotic or a bridge but it might be able to give voice to an idea, any number of ideas. So VENTURE too hopes to be productive and useful, useful to those whose ideas and musings are printed and useful to those who benefit a little from the contact with those ideas.

Sixty-seven THE REVIEW ' The Editor at work " BOB CUNNINGHAM Editor-in -Chief JEAN RYKER Associate Editor RAY DE VRIES Managing Editor They ' re working — believe it or not " " I hope we didn ' t disturb him " Sixty-eight The REVIEW — the student publication which manages to be at all places on campus at all times. Not only a reporter of social and athletic events, this inquisitive organization pecks into all phases of university life from dining hall and administrative problems to Football Queen elections and speeches by visiting lecturers. It is also one of the main areas for publicity for all student functions — dances, drives, and meetings. Through the cooperation of the whole staff, this year ' s REVIEW has been able to present to the whole university 4 sixteen page issues and has given a complete view of campus life. H.ird work and lots of it typify the life of a member of the REVIEW staff, but when the weekly issue comes off the press and the fruits of their long hours are seen, congratulations are in order to all from the editor-in-chief right down to the last typist and copy reader.

NEEDLE AND HAYSTACK, the annual paper published by the Home-Ec and Ag clubs, furnishes news of changes in the curricula and of improvements in the facilities of both schools. Since both the school of Agriculture and the School of Home Economics have expanded so much in the last few years, this paper coordinates the activities of both schools and brings their achievements to the attention of all students. Within the NEEDLE AND HAYSTACK are included stories about and by the students, news of faculty and alumni, data about di.scoveries and advances in each field, and job opportunities after graduation. Under the capable direction of co-editors Ann Short and Paul Lloyd, this year ' s NEEDLE AND HAYSTACK has brought new viewpoints and contemporary ideas to its readers. PAUL LLOYD Co-Editor Scxriitv-oite SLIPSTICK GARY GILL Co-Editor GARRY HOFFMAN Co-Editor The SLIPSTICK, sponsored by the Engineering Coun- cil, is the Engineering School ' s official publication. This eight- page newspaper is published once a year, in which reports of the Engineering School ' s activities and future plans arc presented. SLIPSTICK aims to familiarize the engineering student with the activities that take place in the Engineering School. Included in the paper besides engineering activities are essays by the students and faculty members. The " Slide- rulers " enjoy working on their paper and feel that through it, they not only present problems and answers to their fellow students but also show that Engineers can write too.

KING, Director The Blue Hen Marching Band, organized in 1946 and under the leader- ship of J. R. King, is the co-ed band which performs at all football games. This band at its formation had only 15 members, but in the last three years, it has kept Its membership at 60. Smart military-style precision drill replaces the popular trend toward musical pageantry in the band. It has continued to use Souza, Goldman, and Filmore marches which have become very popular with the student body. In September the Marching Band spent ,i days at Camp Tochwogh which helped to prepare it for a season of football appearances, tours, and concerts. In October it performed with the duPont Employees Band at the Wilmington Playhouse, and in May held indoor and outdoor concerts. One of the main parts of the band ' s program is its tour of all the high schools in the state at which it performs and sets an e.xample of the success which can accompany practice.

The over-all record for the season was seven straight wins, first place in the Del-Mar- Va. Cham- pionships and second place in the Middle Atlantics. The team was capably led by co-captains Dante Marini and Dick OConnor and while the team was running through seven opponents, out on White Clay Creek Road, several records were broken. Co-captain Marini set a new record of 104 points scored dunng the season and the team as a whole set a record of ?66 points scored during the season.

The two victories were obtamed against Gettysburg and Muhlen- burg. The team was impressive in all their games and performed well against more stellar and experienced performers. As a further mani- festation to these accomplishments was the selection of co-captain John McLaughlin and lineman Nick Paxson to the All Middle Atlantic first team. Bill Regester also made honorable mention. Other honors went to co-captain Willard Thompson who made second team AU-Penna.-N.J.-Del. with Paxson and McLaughlin re- ceiving honorable mention on this team.

The Hens made a good showing in going down to defeat at the hands of powerful Virginia. The first victor ' was posted against Swarthmore. A decision by Herb Nickel and a draw by Tom Oves insured the victory. A de- cision by Harold Ladd was the only bright spot in a loss to Ursinus. Jack Wenner ' s first varsity pin inspired the Hens as they came from behind to defeat Johns Hopkins. The matmen were decisioned by Muhlenberg despite a decision by Tom Baker. Substitute Jim Horn started the Hens off to winning ways against Drexel. A come from behind pin by Bill Bauer enabled Delaware to beat Buckneli and finish with an even season.

Coach Harry Ra vstrom " s swimmers, who lost many stars from their 1954 championship team put forth a valiant effort and although the won-lost column was not too impressive, the Blue Hen aqua-men had many bright spots. Their lone victor ' was at the expense of Swarthmore in their last meet and they tied Villanova during the regular season. In the Middle Atlantic Championships, of which the Hens were defending champs, they brought home a third place, significantly defeating seve ral teams that drowned the Hens in dual competition earlier in the season. Captam Bob Wagner was the most consistent winner all season and in the 220 yard breaststroke he set a new Delaware and Middle Atlantic record of 2:35.4. Tom Duff in the medley and Marty Apostolico in the sprints turned in outstanding performances all year, along with Jack McDaniel and Bruce Stewart. In the ECSA held at Rutgers.

RCLAY- IZ f fWl: PEANUT HOWELL Manager BASKETBALL PETE KELLEHER Co-Captain IRV " WHIZ " WISNIEWSKI Coach Coach Irv Wisniewski began his first year as varsity coach with largely a young and inexperienced squad and the 6-won 16-lost record bears this out. However, it should be pointed out that in eight of the contests that the Blue and Gold dropped they were within ten points of the opponents. These close defeats were often decided from the foul line as evidenced by the fact that in 22 games the opponents scored nearly 100 more foul tries. The high point of the season for the Hens was the surprise 78-75 upset victory over St. Joseph ' s of Philadelphia. Fine shooting, rebounding, and floor play characterized this team victory. Jack Waddington led the team in total points, average, and free throw conversions. The lanky Salem, N. J. athlete scored 279 points, 103 from the foul line, in 22 games for a 12.7 average per game. Dallas Green and Pete Kelleher also topped the 200-point mark with 253 and 204 points respectively. Green led the squad in field goals scored with 96. The prospects for next season are bright as only Co-Captains Pete Kelleher and Don Miller depart from this year ' s team. Forming the nucleus tor next season ' s quintet will be returning lettermen Dallas Green, Ed Kwiatkowski, Clyde Louth, Bob Messick, Russ Trimmer, and Jack Waddington. Adding to this core of lettermen Paul Flood, Don Hutton, and several others of the frosh squad, there will be suf ficient talent to provide a winning combination next season.

The Council is composed of representatives from the nine Fra- ternities in addition to representatives from the men ' s dormitories and independent teams. Participation is the foundation of the organi- zation while its basic principle is to supplement varsity athletics with a well-rounded program aimed at all the students.

One Hundred Fort -tivo AQUATIC CLUB The Women ' s Aquatie Club is an honorary organization. Each tall, and usually, again in the spring, women students are invited to try out for the Aquatic Club. Membership is based upon performance of aquatic skill as shown in these tryouts. The Club has as its pur- pose the providing of opportunity for the better women swimmers to learn and perfect skills in synchronized swimming in an informal atmosphere of fun and recreation. The beginning of the fall term finds Aquatic Club members busily at work ever ' Monday night m the Women ' s P(k)1. Much time must be spent in perfecting orthodo.x strokes before the swimmers can begin adapting these strokes for their own purposes. Aqua stunts, such as the dolphin, ballet legs and the kip, are also learned, and occasionally members take time out for a " rela.xing " game of water polo. In December Aquatic Club members can be found haunting music and record shops, searching for show music. Once the show theme and music are obtained, the aqua-maids begin composing num- bers for their aquatic show. Though many hours must be spent in preparation for the climax of their year ' s work, the mermaids find that the fun of swimming " in the limelight " " for an audience brings its own reward.

One Hundred Fort -lhree HOCKEY BOWLING Though hockey manager, Eileen Dalton, vowed we ' d play in snowshoes if we had to, we managed to get through the 1954 season ' s snowstorms without it. Each of the four color teams was composed of members of every class, and each team played the others twice for a total of twelve games in the Round Robin tourney. Win- ners of the tournament were the Yellow team. High- light of the season was a match between the WAA Honor Team and the All-Delaware team with the score result- ing in a 2-2 tie. WAA borrowed the Newark howling alleys on week- day afternoons for their tournament, which began early in March. Teams of four bowled once a week for six weeks, with the winners being those with the highest total score. Bowlers could act as their own pin-boys or, for an additional few cents, hire a pin-boy. Pat Mac- Farlane, manager, reported nine teams bowling in the " 55 tournament, and the battle for first place among the kegglers going strong. f- 1 That was a nasty dodge! One small strike, coming up! One Hundred Forty-four TENNIS BADMINTON Competition was keen in WAA ' s t ' .ill tennis tourna- ment with amateur champ, Kay Huber, participating. Games in both singles and doubles were played in the elimination tourna ment. Matches were scheduled accord- ing to players ' ability, with three sets equalling a match. Inclement weather postponed the semi-finals and finals until spring, after which, because of strong interest, tennis manager, Marty Baldwin, started a whole new tourna- ment. A tremendous turn-out for badminton forced Nancy Ennis, manager, to place competition in her Round Robin tourney on a class basis. The tournament started right after Thanksgiving and extended through the winter until late March. Matches in both singles and doubles were played afternoons and evenings in the Mirror Room and in the main Gym. Tennis, anyone? Smash it, Tessie! One Hundred Forty-five A homer for sure! Hard at work! SOFTBALL WAA PUBLICITY In the spring, at least, this sport noses out bridge as first place after-dinner activity. Games are played on the two athletic fields on South Campus with the co-eds swing- ing a mean hat. Six dorm teams competed in the 19 4 season, which started in April and ran through May. Winners of the tournament, which was run on a Round Robin basis b) ' manager, Joan Stewart, were New Castle Hall. Each season ' s sports in WAA are publicized through- out the year by placing posters in the dorms and in the Womens Gym. Fran Cook. WAA ' s publicitj ' manager this year, worked with each of the sport managers in preparing publicit ' for each tournament. WAA ' s column in the Review, " Chick " n ' Chat, " also brings a weekly round-up of happenings in WAA tournaments. In keep- ing with precedent, Jean Tull and Charlotte Phillips, our present " Chick ' n Chat " columnists, will pick two new WTiters this spring to train them for the job ne.xt year. One Hundred Forty-six All set to clobber that ball! Up, up and away! TABLE TENNIS BASKETBALL This mid-winter tourney started rolling late in Febru- ary ' with Doris Eipper at the head-post of manager. Girls signed up in the dorm to participate in the Round Robin tournament, which included both singles and doubles. Matches were scheduled by the manager and notices sent to each player for every match. The third floor recrea- tion room of the Women ' s Gym was the battleground for the ping pong enthusiasts, who were fifteen in number. The turn-out for one of WAA ' s biggest sports again proved large this year. Manager Nesta Warfield had the seven dorm teams competing in a Round Robin tourna- ment. Begun early in February ' , the season extended to spring vacation with each team playing every other team once for a total of 2 1 games. As a part of their training, junior majors put on a Basketball Clinic at the beginning of the season to explain new rules for the benefit of WAA players. A major was also in charge of coaching each one of the teams during their preliminary practices. Junior and senior majors officiated the games. Our Hundred Porfv-seven DELAPEM CLUB Membership in this organiration is hmited to women physical education majors. It is in its second year of existence and is inde- pendent of the WAA. This club is chartered by the American Association of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation to further professional development of members, to discuss different phases of physical education, to work with the faculty in building a top physical education department on campus, and to stimulate interest in sports among women on campus. This organisation also gives a " Best Athlete " award. The sweetest music this side of heaven. One Hundred Forty-eight " " ' «.

One Hundred Sixty-eight r A i DISTURB DORMITORIES Di B VIRGINIA LARSON Chairman DEAN BESSIE B. COLLINS Faculty Adviser WOMAN ' S AFFAIRS Much of the influence of the university ' s South Campus is made known through Women ' s Executive Council, representative of all undergraduate women. In carr ' ing out its functions, legislative, judicial, and social, it echoes the sentmients of the majority of women students. Often, Women ' s " Exec " answers long-felt needs, as in this year ' s program of widening the scope of the Honor System, and inaugurating new methods of room drawing and petitioning for S. G. A. elections. The crowded condition of the dormitories prompted the Council to form a committee to study housing problems. A perennially popular activity of the group is its sponsorship of the two important women ' s social events. Women ' s Weekend and Interdorm Playbill. A milestone in its history. Playbill this year included the Women Commuters in its program. In a cultural vein, the members provided for the enlargement of the Browsing Room library in Warner. Thus, in several areas of campus activity. Wo ' men ' s Executive Council realises its purposes of making needed changes and unifying the women of the university.

" Don ' t forget your dink " was a by- word during the fall. Later on, there were candle- light coke parties when Hurricane Hazel plunged the campus into darkness. As a suitable climax to an exciting football season, the Smyth B ' ers trooped en masse up to Carpenter Field House for that memorable late pepfest after Delaware ' s Bowl Game triumph. Then came Christmas with par- ties, and peanut sisters lurking ever ' where. Finals arrived and Smyth B had never been so quiet!

Those who carried paraphernalia up to the third and fourth floors were grouped in Unit C. These girls joined forces with the other units to create clever decorations, and to give the Blue Hens rousing support during football season. In Decem- ber, they proudly entertained their parents at tea. Collaborating with Unit B, they produced an original and successful musical for Playbill. Among the big events of a fabulous Women ' s ' Weekend was a " Coketail " Party held before the Friday night dance. As finals ended in May, their freshman days now a memory, the girls began to anticipate eagerly an equally exciting year as sophomores.

TOPSEY TURVEY OFFICERS Head of House SHIRLEY STOTZ Assistant Head of House PATRICIA SIMPLER Secretary DEE DOBSON Treasurer JUDY McDOWELL For a small dorm, Topsy was the center of a great deal of activity this year. Its residents, nearly all sophomores, were kept busy with a round of noisy gab sessions, house meetings topped off with subs, Sunday morning dorm breakfasts, and a certain sadistic pleasure derived from teasing their freshman from Syossct. At Christmas the Topsy-ites augmented the usual spirit with a gay dorm party and caroling. And who can ever forget the fun of that spaghetti dinner at Carol ' s or the hayride? When the time came for intramural sports, Topsy w-as right there, participating in basketball, in cooperation with Tur ' ey, and volleyball. Women ' s Weekend, in the spring, more than lived up to everyone ' s expectations. And that was Topsy — 1955! OFFICERS He ad of House JACQUELINE GIFOL Secretary ROSALIE SCHLATTER Treasurer KARIN VENETIAN How has Turvey kept from coming apart at the seams? So much went on within its walls this year: the Turvey- ites planning the very successful hayride in the fall and the Women ' s " Weekend festivities; lots of wonderful parties — one at Hallowe ' en, a terrific one just before Christmas, with presents exchanged and plenty to eat: and, throughout the year, ever ' one " s birthday celebrations. Will Turvey ever forget the rather damp water fights, or the stellar performance given to some Friday night studiers, presentmg the Bloommg Belles of Turvey? It is hoped by this year ' s girls that next year ' s occupants will forgive them for any leftover odors of subs, popcorn, donuts, and cider, and will have as great a time as they did.

Who can ever forget those gab sssions lasting into the wee hours, that constantly-jangling phone, or the fraternity serenades? Remember how everyone pitched in to help Topsy and Turvey decorate the dorms on Fri- day afternoons? Boletus exhibited its sportswomnnship, too, participating in volleyball for W. A. A. Intramurals. And the dorm was well-represented in the Homecoming Queen competition, with two candidates for that honor. When moving day arrived, everyone was glad their whole group would be together in Warner, though they were sorr ' to leave Boletus, the little dorm with the great big memories, friendships, and good times. OFFICERS Head of House CONSTANCE ELLIS Assistant Head of House JOYCE ADAMS Secretary-Treasurer VIRGINIA BOWEN During the past year Johnston House has been the scene of a host of varied activities. At Christmas the residents of this gracious dormitorj ' contributed toys to charity and entertained faculty members with a tea. Dorm football decorations, W. A. A. sports, plans for the May Day Dance, the Campus Chest project, and an un- successful attempt to make off with that Confederate flag, kept Johnston ' s energetic residents busy. In addi- tion, there were more social events: a Homecoming Tea, an entertainment for parents, Sunday breakfasts, and Sun- day afternoon teas. With the approach of Women ' s Weekend, everyone pitched in to create a real social success. So another year rolled by — with lots of excitement in a terrific dorm !

The football season meant many Fri- day evenings spent cheering at pepfests. As Home- coming approached, Tiffany collaborated with nearby Johnston to make Bea Clark their nominee for Queen of festivities. In December, Tiffany, like many other dorms, added to the prevailing Christmas spirit by donating toys for needy children. During this season, they also gave a tea for the faculty, in cooperation with Johnston. The ordeal of finals past. Tiffany ' s residents learned that they would have to leave their lovely dorm. Although they were made welcome in their new surroundings, the girls will always remember Tiffany as their first home at Delaware, The Home Management House, for Senior Home Eco- nomics majors, allows them to put into practice all they have learned in their first three years of college. Always one of the centers of great activity on campus, this year was no exception. Ever ' week, confusion reigned, with girls moving in for their stay there, or returning to their dorms. Everj-one will remember the constant bustle as the Home Ec-ers put their knowledge to the test, planning meals, cooking, or carrying out the other duties around the house. But there was plent of recreation time, and the girls hostessed at a round of dinners, buffets, showers, and parties in their gaily decorated basement.

They are picked for ability and interest in doing a good job. The junior counselors are picked from the sophomore class in the spring and training them for their position the next fall begins at once. Books and pamphlets explaining their job are given them by Miss Margaret Black who heads this group. This year most of the J .C. ' s lived in Smyth Hall with the freshmen, as it was thought that closer association with them would give both counselors and freshmen a better understanding. During the early part of the year many meetings are held at which the counselors give general information about all aspects of the university and fresh- men arc given a chance to ask any specific questions on matters troubling them. As the year proceeds fewer meetings are called, but freshmen are still able to go to their junior advisors for answers to any problems which arise, and since many of their counselors live in the same building with them, the ' arc able to come to them at any time.

Activities of the society throughout the year consist of tours, lectures, branch meeting, the Engineers Ball, and a picnic held in the spring at which baseball games are played and large amounts of refreshments are consumed by students as well as faculty. Under the leadership of President Ted Taylor and Faculty Advisor R. V. Canning, the American Insti- tute of Electrical Engineers has been an active group on campus this year and hopes to be even more so in the following ones. The Institute of Radio Engineers is an organization on campus for all engineering students mtcrestcd in the field of radio engineering. The University of Delaware chapter is part of the national organizati on of I.R.E. Active members receive the I.R.E. STUDENT QUARTERLY. IRE. newsletters, and minutes of the I.R.E. meetings. A.I.E.E.

Engineering Council Active Young Republicans The Engineering Council coordinates the activities of the four different engineering societies on campus and also Tau Beta Pi. The council edits THE SLIPSTICK, the Engineering School ' s annual newspaper. Another main activity sponsored by this group is the annual Engineer ' s Ball. Throughout the year, this organization has been very active in many events. Under the guidance of Presi- dent John Lowe, the council has had a very successful year. Through the activities of this group, the Engineers participate in many campus events. The Engineers might have a busy schedule, but they are interested enough in the whole student body to take time off and cooperate for the good of everyone. All this goes to prove that the Engineer is more than his slide rule! The Active Young Republic, ins is composed of students who are interested in getting a clear picture of politics. The organization, a member of the State Federation of Young Republicans, has a program here on campus that is designed to stimulate interest in governmental affairs and also to interpret and promote the Republican Party prin- ciples.

Our team attended the Annual Debating Tournament at NYU which was sponsored by Tau Kappa Alpha, National Honorary ' Debating Society-. The club also debated at Temple University- and at Im- maculata College. Competing against 2 5 other colleges and universities in the Seventh Annual Hofstra College Debate Tournament, our team scored 6 victories against 2 defeats to tie for second place. The group was in the 1955 session of the Penns -lvania Interstate Debaters Congress held at Pcnn State. The Debaters Congress held annually for 25 years was attended by delegations from 20 schools. Jack Grant was awarded a key as one of the four out- standing parliamentary speakers, and William Brown was elected Second Vice-President for the 1956 Congress. Young Democrats The Young Democrats is an organization devoted to the study of social as well as political problems. The membership of the Young Democrats feel that, as re- sponsible citizens, they are obligated to investigate, study, and if possible recommend solutions to the pressing prob- lems of our nation and the State of Delaware. Some of the problems considered by the Young Demo- crats during the past year included the sending of un- solicited mail, the Milford integration problem, political candidates speaking on campus, appeals to the Legislature on behalf of the Universitj-, and the University " ? admis- sions policy. With the coming of a national election in 1956, the Young Democrats will devote much time to the issues involved and in active support of the candidates of the Democratic Part ' .

Tzvo Hundred Tzccntv-six Home Economics Club Women Commuters ' Club The Home Economics Club, professional organization of all Home Ec. majors, promotes a feeling of fellowship and unity among the students in the School of Home Economics. It furnishes an opportunity for social life and keeps students in touch with movements in the field as well as rendering service to charitable and university organizations. In addition to the club " s regular meetings, three annual affairs are held: the Freshman Get-Together in September to intrcxJuce the new students and the faculty, the open-house program for Delaware high school students interested in Home Ec, and a banquet to cele- brate the birthday of Ellen H. Richards, founder of Home Economics. Besides all these events, the Home Ec. Club also cooperates in publishing T eedle and Haystdc . To give the women commuters a part in the functionmg of the university, this organization was formed. A small group decided that they were not taking a part in the activities offered them, and they realized that organization was the only an.swer to their problem. Although a recent association, this club has played a major role in many university functions. The activities that Women Com- muter,-; " Club has participated in this year are Women ' s Playbill, W.A.A. basketball. Women ' s Weekend, and the May Day Exercises. It also held a Christmas Party for the Ogletown Orphanage. The officers of this new or- ganization can look back with pride at its accomplishments during the past year and are looking forward to next year with confidence.

Historv Club The Delaware Student Teachers Association is the pr ofessional organization for education majors. It is di ' rectly affiliated with the Delaware Education Association and the National Education Association. D.S.T.A. en- ables future teachers to study the various phases of their proposed profession. Throughout the year, many activities were held which were profitable to the members. Under the leadership of Barbara Simon and Dr. E. Lloyd, the club has presented a full and varied schedule. Meetings consisted of lectures and discussions. Field trips were also taken and other helpful activities were promoted. The group has had a verj ' successful year, and it is looking forward with enthusiasm to next year. The History Club tries to reach solutions to world problems. The problems they consider are neglected both in economics and histor) ' because they are too technical. Through lectures and field trips, the members also have an opportunity to see the heritage and culture from which they developed. The program usually is followed by an informal discussion of the subject. Under the leadership of Persident Charles Chappius and Faculty ' Advisor Dr. John Monroe, a full schedule has been offered to the group. Part of their program included a tour of Winter ' thur Museum in December and lectures by Dr. W. A. Mosher, Dr. Gordon Craig of Princeton, and a visiting professor Dr. Tyler. D.S.T.A.

Membership is limited and based on auditions held by the music depart ' ment. A Cappella presents music by both early and con- temporary composers, the latter often being present to conduct their own works. This year Richard Donovan was present at a concert made up of his music and in former years such well-known artists as Wayne Barlow and Gian- Carlo Menotti have been present. Among its varied pro- grams this organization has presented a Christmas Pro- gram and a program of religious music to the University ' students. In March they sang for those attending the Reading Clinic. Other groups throughout Delaware will remember them for their program of Christmas Music held at Dover Air Base, and in May they sang at the duPont Hotel. Math Club The Math Club ' s purpose is to bring together those people who are interested primarily in mathematics. Dis- cussions are held that are on topics in both pure and applied mathematics. Through its program, the student is given the opportunity to look at the subject from different points of view from those presented in class. Meetings are held once a month. Lectures and socials compose the main part of this group ' s program. Under the leadership of president Lou Roemer, the club has tried to bring to- gether students interested in the math field. Anyone is eligible for membership — just an interest in mathematics is required. MATH CLUB First Ron: Dr. John H. Barrett, Jim Scott.

The club strives to give a broad view of the international scene through their programs. The group hopes to serve the interests of the students and bring them the opportunity of broadening their understanding and sharing their views. Under the leadership of Marvin Strom, the I.R.C. has presented a very active schedule — films and guest speakers were the main parts of this program. Sociology Club The Sociology Club has had a very busy season this year. Under the leadership of President Mary Martin and Faculty Advisor Dr. R. S.

Through its full program of meetings and socials, this organination hopes to provide some knowledge of the field ' s techniques and also to give everyone a good time. The group sponsors field trips during the year, holds a father-son banquet, and plays host on Future Farmers of America Day. Members also enjoy the annual Ag Club- faculty picnic where a traditional softball game is played between the " Aggies " and the profs. This group is an active organization that tries to promote interest in and understanding of agriculture. Farming is not just hard work; its also a lot of fun. Just ask an " Aggie. " The University 4-H Club is primarily a service club which seeks to strengthen the bonds of the 4-H Clubs throughout the state. The club promotes leadership and fellnwship and helps 4-H members adjust to college life. During the summer it helps conduct 4-H Short Course and helps with the camp activities held at Camp Barnes in Sus. ex County. A paper " The Diamond State 4-Her " is published and sent out to all members of 4-H Clubs in Delaware which tries to bring each club ' s outstanding accomplishments and activities to all 4-Hers. Not only workers these farmers like to have fun too. and this year they held a Hallowe ' en Party and a square dance to which all 4-H members in the state were invited. Tico Hundred ' flnrtv-onc Madrigal Group pmi0 Women ' s Chorus Madrigal Group The Madragal Group, a part of A Cappella, is the newest organization on campus. It was started by an inter- ested group under the direction of Mr. Bertram Gable in the spring of 1955. Though a new organization com- posed of 11 members, this group has performed several times this year. In March they entertained at a special banquet for a group of educators. In April they per- formed for the students of Middlctown High School, and in May they sang with A Cappella at the Hotel du Pont for the Wilmington Music Commission. The group is looking forward to next year, and they hope to expand both their activities and membership. Women ' s Chorus Under the direction of Mr. Bertram Gable, Women ' s Chorus has done some fine work this year. Membership in this group is not decided on the basis of tr ' -outs. Mem- bers are just interested in singing. This year Women ' s Chorus sang contemporar ' music at the Richard Donovan concert and have also sung with A Cappella in the Christ- mas Program and in the program of religious music. A strong organization, Women ' s Chorus, has done an ex- cellent job this year in the events that it has participated in. The director and chorus members are looking forward with confidence and backward with pride. Tii ' o Hundred Thlrty-tivo FINALE We pause here. The Seniors say their goodbyes. The underelassmen move into oigger responsibilities. New dreams and ideas are formed. New hopes for the future are built. We see the faUing leaves of autumn, the cold winds of winter, and the long-sought-after sunshine of spring combine to tell the story of 1955 at the University of Delaware. There is regret — regret in the swift passage of time, in the mistakes made in learning, and in the things which must be left undone and untold. There is much looking back — looking back on the hours of pleasant, unforgettable friendships, on the work which has been done, and on the days and months which have made this year in our lives. There is hope — hope for those who take their final leave, and for those who will return in a few short summer months. To you. who are leaving, we send with you our best wishes; to you who are staying, we leave many days of happiness. To all of you, we hope that we have succeeded in telling your story in this year, 1955. T ' ci ' o Hundred Thirty-tlircr STUDENT DIRECTORY AANESTAD, DONALD T. 617 Harrint;tun St., V.
