Pictured on the map is the first school house of the Pittsburgh Academy, the two-roomed log cabin. erected in 1787 in the shadow of the Block House at Third, Smithfield, and Cherry Streets. Three years later, on the same site, the cabin was replaced by a neat brick building which served until 1830, when the first building of the Western University of Pennsylvania was built just east of Smithfield Street. In 1845 this building was destroyed by fire and a new school house was built on the site of what is now Joseph Horne's Department Store. Fire razed this building in 1849. It took six years before another building. was erected, a red brick structure at Ross and Diamond Streets. In 1882 classes were transferred across the river to Allegheny City, to the Presbyterian and Reformed Presbyterian Seminary Building where classes were held until 1890. In that year the University moved to its two new buildings at Perrysville and Clayton Streets, near the old Observatory. In 1908 came the exodus from Allegheny and the entry into Oakland. State 'Hall was built in 1908, Thaw Hall in 1909, and Alumni Hall in 1921. Ground was broken in 1926 on the F rick Acres for the Cathedral of Learning, culminating the advance in 150 years from logs. to limestone. I' ' Not pictured on the map are several buildings of significance in the history of the University. In 1894 the Pharmacy building was built on the Boulevard of the Allies. Pennsylvania Hall, now known as the Medical School, was completed in 1910. The Upper Dental School was built in 1912, and in the same year Trees Gym was ready for use. The Heinz House, left smoldering by a fire two months after erection, was rebuilt in 1919. One year later the Dental Infirmary was built. In 1925, with the era of big football, came the Stadium. The most beautiful of the University buildings are of recent construc- tion. The Falk Clinic was built and presented to the University in 1929, and the Falk Elementary School in 1931. Clustered about the Cathedral are the Heinz Chapel, begun in 1933, and the Stephen Foster Memorial, begun in 1935. Utility has motivated and beauty has guided the construction of these latter buildings of the University.

OO often those who clear the path for progress are not here to enjoy that to which they have given life, and those who benefit have not their strife to look back upon. It is because we realize this that we dedicate the 1937 Owl to the courageous and visionary founders of the University and to those countless, who, for the past one hundred and fifty years, have contributed to the development and welfare of the University. The spirit of the founders that took root in the single log cabin of 1787 is still with us. It has grown through the years, and today it finds new expression in the Cathedral of Learning, an enduring symbol of the courage and spirit and of the endless groping upward that have been so much a part of Pittsburgh. No community can give to its people a full life .without a complete cultural development. The greatest achievement comes only when, through systematic effort, we keep before us the best that is in our minds and hearts. This orderly enlightenment-the way to a more com- plete life-has been the function of the University. Pitt's prime service is to its community. Pitt's campus is Western Pennsylvania. We are eternally grateful to those who saw the need and strove in its fulfillment. They have sown, and we have reaped. FOREWORD T HAS been the traditional endeavor of the Owl to record the separate activities of the year and to fuse them into an entity: to recapture and crystallize the diffused spirit of the University as it exhibits itself in the varied phases of University lifeg and to add, perhaps, a touch of lustre to events which too soon become but recollections. To these aims the 1937 Owl adds another: to commemorate the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the University by a connotative, appre- ciative treatment of its record. There is no necessity here for an exhaustive or detailed history: others have accom- plished that. The editors hope to present a general delineation of-and thus to kindle an interest in-the glorious past of the University. If "-.

UNIVERSITY ORGANIZATIONS ATHLETICS FEATURES THE PITTSBURGH ACADEMY-1787 T29 tw ONE HUNDRED FIFTY YEARS. HE YEAR 1937 is a landmark in the history of the University of Pittsburgh from whence we can look back upon 150 years of progress. The history of the University epitomizes the his- tory of education in Pittsburgh. Idealism, tem- pered with a growing realization of the need for education in this thriving frontier town, motiva- ted the founding of the University. In that day there were 150 families in Pittsburgh. The year was 1787, and Hugh Henry Bracken- ridge, Representative in the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, petitioned the Legislature for a charter for the establish- ment of the Pittsburgh Academy. On February 28, the charter was granted. A three room log cabin was built near the fort at the Point, and George Welch, who had advertised in the "Pittsburgh Gazette" that he was an instructor in "learned languages, English, and mathe- matiks," was made principal. A half dozen buck- skin clad students enrolled. They aimed to re- ceive an education in "useful arts, science, and literature." The usual classical subjects were taught-elocution, literature, mathematics, French, astronomy and the rudiments of chem- istry. By 1790 enrollment had increased enough to warrant the construction of a new brick building near the log cabin, which then served as a pro- fessor's home. As the Academy progressed, the faculty, the equipment, and the scope of instruc- tion grew. loseph Stockton, who served as the last principal of the Academy from 1810 to 1819, wrote two widely used textbooks during his tenure: "The Western Calculator" and "The Western Spelling Book." These were the most modern textbooks in use beyond the Alleghenies. The townspeople were always looking up- ward. A new charter, secured in 1819, reorgan- ized the Academy, and the school was known now as WUP-the Western University of Penn- sylvania. The Rev. Dr. Robert Bruce was the new principal, and during his long term, which lasted until 1842, great advances were made. A new building was erected, engineering courses were offered, and a Law School began to function. By 1845 WUP was acknowledged as one of the best schools west of the Alleghenies. The bright outlook soon dimmed. Twice with- in four years the University with all its equip- ment was burned. The great fire of 1845 swept the city, completely demolishing the University. Soon a new building was erected on Duquesne Way. And in 1849 a second great fire raged through the downtown section, again razing the University. The discouraged trustees shook their heads at their misfortune and rented a building where classes were held until 1854. In that year the wandering students moved to a new school- house at Ross and Diamond Streets, with lohn F. McLaren as Principal. WUP again began to grow. The day of industrialism was beaming bright in Pittsburgh, and men of knowledge were needed. Progress, however, soon received another jolt. The Civil War burst upon the nation, and in those tragic years WUP was virtually without students. In 1858 Donati's Comet had flashed across the sky, and a wave of interest followed. Lectures on astronomy were given, and an Allegheny Telescope Society was launched. Members sub- scribed for the purchase of a small telescope, and a rare thing happened. The fund was over- subscribed! A large telescope, second only to the one at Harvard, was purchased, and in l865 the Allegheny Observatory was given to the Uni- versity by a group of citizens headed by William Thaw. Samuel Pierpont Langley, the first to con- struct an airplane that flew, was made Director. His co-worker, lohn A. Brashear, raised suf- ficient funds for the present building. After the War the University maintained a steady growth. Under Chancellors George Woods and Henry M. MacCracken-from 1859 to 1884-enrollment doubled. A School of Chemistry and a College of Engineering were formed. Larger quarters were needed. "Old A1legheny" became the -new home of the University. There, on Perrysville Avenue, WUP flourished as never before. Schools of Medicine, Law, and Dentistry were incorporated, a School of Pharmacy became affiliated with the University, and a legislative act established the School of Engineering and Mines. WUP was preparing for its halcyon days. An unexpected innovation came with the com- mencement of 1895, held in a downtown theatre. Advised by Dr. John Crocker White, President of the Board of Trustees, that an important an- nouncement would be forthcoming at the close of the exercises, the audience had prepared it- self for momentous news. They were surprised, but not disappointed. Two young ladies had applied for admission to WUP, and were ac- cepted! Under the chancellorships of Dr. William Iacob Holland and Dr. Iohn A. Brashear develop- ment continued. The necessity for expansion again arose and in 1908 the University was moved back across the river to Oakland and the institution became the University of Pittsburgh. Dr. Samuel Black McCormick was Chancellor then. The School of Business Administration, the Graduate School, a teacher's training school, and a School of Industrial Chemistry which later became the Mellon Institute for Industrial Re- search, were founded. In the decade following the World War, enrollment at the University was tripled. lohn G. Bowman became Chancellor of the University which, like a lad in his teens, was ll THE UNIVERSITY OF PITTSBURGH-1937 out-growing everything. In l92l, when he as- sumed office, the University was crowded into one-fourth the space it needed for classrooms, laboratories, and offices. The need for new buildings was greater than it had ever been. Eight or ten new buildings were essential if the University was to be adequately housed. The Chancellor conceived a new ideawone building tall and beautiful, and complete within itself- The Cathedral of Learning. Ground was broken in 1926, and today the Cathedral is in use. The day when all the greatness of the building will be utilized is not far off. On the same campus is the Heinz Chapel, dedicated to the spiritual as- pirations of all Pitt students. Adjoining is the Stephen Foster Memorial, wherein are housed the original manuscripts of the great Pittsburgh composer, and nearby is the new Mellon Institute of Industrial Research. Pitt has grown with the community it serves. In 150 years both have become great. The ideals out of which sprang the log cabin of 1787 gave foundation to the Cathedral of Learning. The log cabin served the Pittsburgh of its day, and the subsequent growth of the city has been ac- companied always by a corresponding growth of the University. The l5O years which we com- memmorate are years of progress, of growth, of service, and of enlightenment. QA!!

QA 3 1 UNIVERSITY THE FIRST W U. P. COMMENCEMENT-1823 HE first commencement of the Western University ot Pennsylvania was held in 1823. 'l'hree students were awarded degrees by Dr. Bruce, the Principal: and each of the graduates-Thomas Cathcart Guthrie, Samuel Fer- guson Smith, and Alexander Logan-became a preacher. W.U.P. had a faculty of five then, and it was the most natural thing in the world for students to become clerics, tor every member ot the faculty was a preacher. The University was comprised ot two departments, the Preparatory, tor the beginners, and the Col- legiate, for the more advanced. Once a student mastered the classics, he pro- gressed trom the Preparatory to the Collegiate Department where he studied composition, declamation, algebra, history, navigation, chemistry, and natural history. The committee appointed by the Board of Trustees announced that the curriculum would ". . . blend the solid with the ornamental, the useful with the elevated." The progression from class to class was irregular, students advancing as quickly as their abilities permitted. The lone requirement was that each student attend the last two years ot the Collegiate Department. Today the University of Pittsburgh is truly a university, a fusion of depart- ments that gives to the community annually a thousand men and women ready to till useful places in the pattern of things. From the two departments of the original W.U.P., the University has grown to an institution consisting of seven- teen divisions. By day the University functions through the College, the Schools of Engineering and Mines, of Education, Business Administration, Medicine, Law, Pharmacy, Dentistry, and the Graduate School. For those unable to attend school by day, there is an Evening School. The inlluence of the University has been widened more than ever by means of the Extension Division and the Sum- mer Session. Iohnstown and Erie Centers are maintained. An outpost has been established in China. The faculty has grown from a group ot live divines to a body of over 900 teachers, with a student registration in the neighborhood of ll,O00. Pitt has grown more than in size alone. Pitt is a great University, not solely because it is a large one, but because it serves its community well. if LARGE Elements in order brought, And tracts ot calm from tempest made, And world-wide fluctuatioh swayed, In vassal tides that followed Thought. -TENNYSON Vxx x ' VALTIVYK kvv x .V vnrfw.-4 xs :- ex - , neu G11 . , mz,nL,4f,Cdfi0n DR SAMUEL BLACK LINHART Dr. Samuel Black Linhart, Secretary of the University since 1906, and Professor of History of Religion and Philosophy, died on December ll, 1936. He was a graduate of Wooster College, receiving there the degrees of A.B., MA., and D.D. In 1894 Dr. Linhart was ordained to the Presbyterian Ministry, and for four years was pastor of the old Forty-third St. Church. Before serving on the Board of Trustees of the University of Pittsburgh he was President of Blairsville College for Women. At the University he was the sponsor of the Student Y.M.C.A. and was the head of the first summer session of the University. He was a member of the Western Pennsylvania Historical Society, Delta Tau Delta, Phi Beta Kappa, the Sons of the American Revolution, Omicron Delta Kappa, the International Association of Rotary Clubs, the Chamber of Commerce, the Civic Club of Allegheny County, the National Council of Y.M.C.A., the University Club, the Duquesne Club, the Faculty Club, and the Longue Vue Country Club. 22 IN KMEMCRIAM TI-IE CI-IANCELLOR'S MESSAGE CHANCELLOR JOHN G BOWMAN HE OWL is a record. It is a record of moving forward to significant life. lust what this means we must each answer for ourselves. Let me suggest, however, that it means these things: that you are able to control your temper, that you find joy in common things and see beauty in grass and trees and creeks and hills, that you see beauty also in the character of those about youQtheir integrity, their persistence, their faithp that by sheer habit you play fair, and that you believe in good- ness. To this let me add, too, that the moving forward is a gain in ability to think. We all have some of this ability, although not much of it may be needed in order to earn a living. If, however, you are one who struggles to catch a rainbow, if you expect to be a doctor or a lawyer or a business man or an artist, and if in your vocation you expect to count as one who is significant, then you will need real capacity for thought-thought that can deal with material things and with the non-material. The Owl, then, is a record of growing, or moving toward an ideal of life which we each see for ourselves. It ought to be noblep it ought to be kind: it ought to be full of wisdom. lohn G.

For over a century these courses were the basis of higher education, although the first principal's successors, during the early years of the Academy, did somewhat enlarge this curriculum. The Reverend Mr. Arthur became the second Principal of the Acad- emy in 1795. He was succeeded in 1796 by the Reverend Robert Andrews who served as the school's head until 1800, The next head of the school was the Reverend Robert Steele who served for just one term. The Reverend John Taylor, Principal from 1801 to 1807 introduced a course in Astronomy. From 1807 to 1810, Rev- erend Robert Patterson, scholar and poet, guided the destinies of the Academy and he was fol- lowed by Reverend loseph Stockton, who headed the Academy from 1810 until 1822, when it be- came a university. Reverend Stockton, a lover of the classics, was the author of the first school- books used west of the Allegheniesz "Western Calculator," and the "Western Spe1ler." In 1822, the Western University of Pennsyl- vania was formally created and Robert Bruce, D.D., became its first Principal. He tried to per- petuate the classical tradition of his Alma Mater, the University of Edinburg, in the new Univer- sity and he established a very solid and compre- hensive curriculum in which both classical ,.

The Reverend Gil- bert Morgan, Principal in 1835-1836, made an attempt in his short reign to set up a teacher's college. Public schools had been introduced in 1834 and this wise Head of the University saw a growing need for teachers. His plans did not materialize at the time but the idea did not die. Reverend Robert Bruce again became Principal and continued his former policy during the years 1836 to 1843. Herman Dyer, D.D., Principal of the University during the hectic years from 1843 to 1849, when the University's progress was harrassed by fires, introduced the first law and engineering courses. During the period from 1849 to 1855, D. H. Riddle, D.D., was Head of the University. Attempts to hold classes in spite of the fact that there was no permanent location for the school failed. From 1855 to 1858, lohn F. McLaren, D.D., was Principal. In the latter year, George Woods, LL.D., as- sumed the responsibilities of guiding the school and became the first to carry the title of Chancel- lor of the Western University of Pennsylvania. His accomplishments include the strengthening of both the general cultural and the scientific courses. It was during his term that the Alle- gheny Observatory was added to the University. Henry M. MacCracken, D.D., later President of New York University, was Chancellor from 1881 to 1884. Milton B. Goff, LL.D., who next as- sumed leadership of the growing school, was the 'QM 'mmrqwgn ll I: M N a lll- 'W I t , ' . 'r 5 - U F Ll' I' 1 ffxlrtj i r '- A ' i ' X -- The good townspeople had built rx.

ADMINISTRATORS . . . 1787-1937 first faculty member to become Head of the Uni- versity. During his term he made many friends for the University and helped to extend the aca- demic structure of the University. Pittsburgh was meanwhile rapidly becoming the industrial cen- ter of the country and engineers were in de- mand. With this growing need in mind, the next two Chancellors, William Iacob Holland, Ph.D., D.D., 0891-19011, and lohn Alfred Bra- shear, Sc.D., LL.D., fActing Chancellorl, placed special emphasis on the scientific and engineer- ing courses. Dr. Holland established a School of Engineering and affiliated the Medical, Dental, Pharmacy, and Law Schools with the University. Samuel Black McCormick, D.D., LL.D., Chan- cellor from 1904 to 1920, presided over the Uni- versity during its next period of expansion. It was during his term of office that the Graduate 5 HENRY M. MacCRACKEN WILLIAM 1. HOLLAND Schools, the Extension Division, and the Evening School were added to the University. The West- ern University of Pennsylvania moved from A1- legheny to Oakland and became the University of Pittsburgh during his regime, too, and Mellon Institute, the School of Education, the School of Economics latter 1923 the School of Business Administrationj, and the professional schools were no longer merely affiliated groups but in- tegral parts of the University. In 1920, lohn Gabbert Bowman, LL.D., became Chancellor of the University. He supplied the inspiration for the great expansion program of the past fifteen years. His idea, now a concrete development, supplied the University with much needed space in a beautiful form and what is, perhaps, more important, he emphasized the need for good teaching. I 4 MILTON B. GOFF The next step was to educate the young. On Feb. 28, 1787, the Gen- eral Assembly of Pennsylvania granted a charter for a Pittsburgh Academy. IKE most able faculties, Pitt's faculty is sel- dom in the public gaze. This reticence is more the result of an instinctive distaste for external show than from a lack of achievement. These unassuming men who take such spirited interest in the students they teach are many of them universally celebrated in their particular fields, During the course of the past year Pitt faculty members wrote 27 books and contributed 284 articles to advanced magazines. Each de- partment of every school of the University has members who have distinguished themselves in their fields. Perhaps the accolade of fame has come most often to the Chemistry Department. Here Charles Glenn King first isolated and identified Vitamin C. In addition he has had 54 research papers published. Dr. Alexander Silverman, Head of the Department, is an international authority on glass. He has been United States representative to world glass conferences the past five years. Professor Alexander Lowy, author of the widely used "An Introduction to Organic Chemistry," has served often as an industrial consultant. Further up the hill, in Alumni Hall, many figures tread from class to class who, too, have given exceptional service. Professor Ben Wil- liams of the Political. Science Department has given his subject its most widely used text: THE FACULTY-1937 "The Economic Foreign Policy of the United States." He has just finished a new book, "American Diplomacy Policy," used by his International Relations class. Dr. William T. Root, the jovial Dean of the Graduate School, is the author of the "Handbook of American Prisons and Reformatoriesf' Dr. Root, who is probably Pitt's busiest man, also heads the Psychology Department, in which Dr. Florence M. Tea- garden and Dr. Giovanni Giarlini, psychiatric head of Western Penitentiary, are well known for their research papers in this field. Several faculty members in Alumni Hall aid in city and state government, among them being Dr. Brynjolf Iakob Hovde of the History Department who is Pittsburgh's Welfare Director, and Dr. Elmer Graper, Head of the Department of Political Science, who is the chief advisor to the present city administration. Dr. Marion T. McKay, of the Economics Department is also active in civic life, and has been retained on state and federal advisory taxation committees, a subject on which he is Pennsylvania's leading authority. At present he is financial advisor to the Pennsylvania Department of Public Instruc- tion. From the same department other men are notable. Dr. Carroll R. Daugherty, a research worker, is a national labor authority. His new book "Labor Problems in Industry" is used in di I . i 4. . t ' DR ELMEH D- GRAPER DR. SAMUEL H.

CHARLES GLENN KING Professor of Chemistry 29 DR. IUDSON ADAMS CRANE Professor of Law many of the leading universities. Dr. lohn M. Ferguson aided Farrar 81 Rinehart, publishers, in editing Spahr's "Principles of Economics," a widely used textbook. In the History Department several men have distinguished themselves: Dr. John W. Oliver and Dr. Alfred P. lames in the field of American history, and Dr. N. Andrew N. Cleven whose specialty is Hispanic-American history. Dr. Whitford H. Shelton, Head of the Language Department, is author of several elementary and advanced French textbooks in wide present use. One of the most popular high school Spanish texts has been written by Dr. Michael Angelo De Vitis. Two members of the Philosophy De- partment are well known in their field, these being Dr. Mont R. Gabbert, Department Head, and Dr. O. L. Reiser. Both have written research papers of note. Several books fresh from the press have been written by Pitt teachers. Dr. Samuel Williams, of the Biology Department, has recently pub- lished "The Living World," the first compre- hensive text on Nature Study. The book contains some three hundred illustrations many of which were taken on Dr. Williams' four expeditions into the Green Hell of British Guiana, the largest and least explored jungle in the world. "The DR. CARROLL R. DAUGHERTY Professor of Economics Living World" is a basic college text in Nature Study and a supplementary text for elementary courses in Ecology or field Biology. It is one of six books Dr. Williams has written in Zoology. Dr. Robert Hance, of the Biology Department, has just published a comprehensive outline study of Zoology, "Visual Outline of Zoology." A book has been published recently by Dr. Harold A. Phelps of the Sociology Department, "Principles and Laws of Sociology." Dr. Phelps is author of two other books and several magazine articles. D. D. Lessenberry's revised copy of "Twentieth Century Typewriting for College" has lately left press. Mrs. Agnes L. Starrett has recently fin- ished her book, "Through One Hundred and Fifty Years," the history of the University of Pittsburgh. One of the country's three leading composi- tion systems is the Hunt Composition System, devised by Professor Percival Hunt, Head of the English Department. George Carver, Professor of English, is one of the most prolific writers among our faculty members. He has written eleven books and more than sixty magazine articles and has acted as consultant for several publishing concerns. In State Hall a familiar figure is Montfort lones, Banking expert and champion story teller of the University. Dr. The purpose of the academy, as stated 'in the charter, was to educate the youth of Pittsburgh tu "useful arts, sciences, and literature." "' ll ' III 30 Mas. AGNES LYNCH STAHRETT Assistant Professor of English MONTFORT JONES Assistant to the Dean of the School of Business Administration and Professor of Finance Gerald D. Whitney, of the School of Education, has been recently appointed one of Pennsyl- vania's Associate Superintendents of Schools. Notable names also appear upon the rosters of the faculties of the professional schools. Dr. Judson Adams Crane, Secretary of the Law School, is a frequent contributor to Law Reviews, and is well known in Pennsylvania for his "Pennsylvania Annotations" and for his "Crane's Cases on Damages." Dr. Joseph Warren Madden, Professor of Law and at present head of the National Labor Relations Board, is the author of the well-known case-book "Cases on Domestic Relations." Recognized as a dental authority, Dr. H. Edmund Friesell, Dean of the Dental School, is the inventor of the Friesell Chisel and the Pitt System of Dental Nomen- clature. In the School of Medicine, Dean Raleigh Russell Huggins is notable, together with several others of the faculty. Dr. Frederick Brown Utley is a leading heart specialist and Dr. Charles Edward Zeigler and Dr. Charles J. Barone are foremost obstetricians. Dean C. Leonard O'Con- nell of the Pharmacy School, is a frequent con- tributor to pharmaceutical publications and has been President of the American Pharmaceutical Association for several years. WILLIAM DAUFENBACH Assistant to the Dean ot Men 31 DR. MARION K. McKAY Professor of Economics Across the walk from State Hall is the School of Engineering and Mines, where Elmer Allen Holbrook, mining authority and one time coal advisor to the N.R.A., is Dean. Teaching there, are William R. Ludewig, the master mechanic of the district, who helped Samuel Langley build the first aeroplane and acted as chief mechanic for John Brashear, renowned lens makerp H. E. Dyche, head of the Electrical Engineering De- partment and "Al" Williams, aviator and col- umnist. The most familiar figure of all the faculty, of course, is ruddy "Bill" Daufenbach, assistant to the Dean of Men, bearer of good and bad tidings. Scattered throughout the more than 900 members of the University faculty are many whose service is great, yet without formal recognition. To these men fame does not come. They have given, nevertheless, incalculable service to their students and to their community. They form the most 'important part of Pitt's faculty. They are the ones who offer inspiration to the students. Through these men students formulate aims, ideals. The fame of these teach- ers is a quiet fame of a duty done, unobtrusively, and well. ff fttlh H The charter provided also for a av-.,,,Q ,th y Y'1xH Board of Trustees, to consist of J x X 22 members, through which of- JL LV A I N ficial business was to be transacted. 5- ,. .

ALUMNI ASSCDCIATION x f DR- P- V- M-:PART-AND NORMAN MacLEOD EARL CRAWFORD President First Vice President Second Vice President N A'1ittle black notebook hidden away in the files of the General Alumni Association's 13th floor Cathedral of Learning office, the first yellowing page is dated 1866. There, written laboriously in long-hand, is the first recorded account of a meeting of alumni in the history of the University of Pittsburgh. Convening in the room of President Woods, in the old W.U.P. building at the corner of Ross and Diamond Streets, eight alumni of the Uni- versity gathered in "the annual meeting of the Western University Alumni Association." As first President of the organization they elected George I. Whitney of the class of '64. Other officers named were William I. Sawyer, '65, and lohn Gordon, '66, Vice-Presidents: Iohn R. Wightman, '65, Corresponding Secretaryg and lohn H. McCandlep, Secretary-Treasurer. The only other business accomplished was a pro- vision for a constitutional committee, but, never- theless, the groundwork had been laid for the present Alumni Association. The next year, Iudge Thomas Mellon, father of Andrew W. Mellon, was elected President. But in succeeding years, the organization was almost dormant. For the first few years its only activity was a yearly business meeting. In 1871, the policy of two yearly meetings began and continued through most of the Association's early history. About the only things accom- plished in those early meetings were the annual nominations for "an orator and poet," for the next year's anniversary, and provision for the beginning of a "catalogue of alumni." Attend- ance averaged about 10 a meeting. From 1880-1883 the organization was prac- tically inoperative. In 1883 a meeting was held at which was to be discussed the proposition of either "forming a new alumni association or infusing life into the old one." The members decided to continue within the framework of the old association. The same year provision was made that all alumni of W.U.P. should auto- matically become members of the Association. In 1884, Dr. Iohn M. Duff was elected Presi- dent, and the group began to operate socially, planning a banquet and a picnic. Up to that time meetings had been held in various places, among them the old Monongahela House, the downtown Y.M.C.A., the Pittsburgh Common Council Chambers, and the old University building. Again there was a lapse in activity from 1888 until 1892 when another special meeting, attended by a record number of 69, revived the organization and named as its leader the Hon. Iames H. Reed. At this time, membership was restricted to graduates who had degrees of A.B. or Ph.D., the only academy degrees then con- ferred. The status of the "non-academic" degrees fM.D., C.E., M.E., and E.E.l were left uncertain, but holders of them were later admitted to membership. During the next decade the group made an effort to further the growth and efficiency of the Collegiate Department, which was rapidly being overshadowed by other newer University de- partments. The group also began work on an endowment to be secured by an alumni sub- scription for an "Alumni Chair of Greek Language and Literature," and published the first Alumni Year Book. In this period, new University schools estab- lished alumni associations of their own. The Medical School alumni organized in 1886, the Pharmacy School 10 years later, and the School of Dentistry in 1897. Women first played a part in alumni affairs in 1898, when the "Collegiate Alumnae Associa- tion," later known as the University Alumnae Association, was formed by five women gradu- ates who elected Miss Stella Stein, President. In February, 1897, the General Alumni Association, comprising all University depart- ments, was formed with delegates elected by each department. First officers of the Associa- tion were C. W. Scovel, '83, Presidentg Dr. C. H. Hitzrot, '89, Vice-President, and Dr. S. H. McKibleen, '90, Secretary-Treasurer. Three more men held the office of president until 1907, when George S. Guthrie, then Mayor of Pitts- burgh, was elected. Also in 1907, Dr. Alexander Silverman, now Head of the Department of Chemistry at the University, became Secretary of the Association. During his term of office, from 1907 until 1913, alumni activities took on increased vigor. A constitution was adopted, providing for direct membership of graduates of all schools as well as making possible closer contact with members. In 1908 an executive committee of three was establishedp two years later the present Alumni Brackenridge had been a member 1 , e Wai, of one of the most famous of ' . f N ny Princeton classes, the class of 1771.

SAUNDERS Secretary Treasurer Council of 50 members was organized with a new constitution and new by-laws. Dr. Walther Riddle, '92, became first chairman. The first direct representative on the Uni- versity Board of Trustees to be named by the alumni was elected in 1913. He was A. R. Hamilton of the class of '94. In 1916 the Asso- ciation, with a membership of about 900, had two offices-one downtown in the Park Building, and the other at the University. "Pitt Clubs" had already been organized in various outlying communities by this time. Members of the or- ganization were taking a more active interest in undergraduate affairs and University welfare as evidenced by the establishment of a Student Employment Bureau and the plans for an en- dowment fund to be set aside exclusively for permanent endowment and buildings. Under the leadership of Secretary Karl E. Davis, who was in office from 1915-1928, and headed by 13 presidents in as many years, the organization made continual, though slow, progress. When the present Secretary, Dr. Iohn W. Hallock, came into office in August, 1933, succeeding George I. Carson, depression con- ditions had brought progress almost to a stand- still. But under the guidance of the hard-work- ing, capable Dr. Hallock, membership has been increased to 2,500, out of a total constituency of 25,000, a figure that may seem small, but is large when compared with statistics of other years. Present officers of the Association are: Presi- dent, Dr. P. V. McParland, First Vice-President, Norman MacLeodp Second Vice-President, Earl Crawfordp Treasurer, Robert R. Gaw, and Secretary, Dr. Hallock. Ten constituent groups, holding regular busi- ness and social meetings throughout the year, make up the organization. These groups include the College, the schools of Medicine, Pharmacy, Dentistry, Engineering and Mines, Education, Business Administration, and the Evening, Law, and Graduate Schools. In addition there are a dozen Pitt Clubs situated in localities from New York City to Southern California. The Association publishes "Alumni Review," edited by Don Saunders, nine times a year. The Association last year supervised an elec- Editor, "The Alumni Review" tion in which two alumni were named to the Board of Trustees. This year, as a result of the University's agreement with Governor George H. Earle, members of the Alumni group will nominate 13 more members to the Board. One of the Association's main functions is the sponsoring of two large alumni gatherings yearly, the Fall Homecoming Celebration and the February Charter Day Banquet. This winter the Alumni paid their respects to the University on its 150th anniversary with a campus-wide celebration. A student convocation was held in Soldiers' and Sailors' Memorial Hall on the morning of February 25, with Dr. I. Duncan Spaeth, President of the University of Kansas City, as speaker. Later, groups of alumni and guests were conducted by student guides on tours of inspection of the Cathedral of Learning, the Heinz Chapel, the Stephen Foster Memorial, and other University buildings. In the evening a Sesquicentennial Banquet was held in the Hotel Schenley. A three-reel talking picture depicting the history of the University was shown at the affair. Harry W. Colmery, National Commander of the American Legion and an alumnus of the University CLaw 'l6J, was the principal speaker at the banquet. Other speakers were Dr. Iohn G. Bowman, Chancellor of the Universityp Cornelius D. Scully QLaw '04J, Mayor of the City of Pittsburghp David Lawrence, Secretary of the Commonwealth and representative of Gov. George H. Earle, George H. Clapp CCol1ege '77J, President of the Board of Trustees of the Universityg and Dr. P. V. McParland CDental '04J, President of the General Alumni Association. From 8:30 to 9 o'clock the program was broad- cast over a coast-to-coast N.B.C. hookup. Pitt's 25,000 alumni, scattered throughout the coun- try, were greeted by Dr. P. V. McParlandp Mrs. C. V. CAgnes Lynchj Starrett fCo1lege '20l, author of the history of the University, "Through One Hundred Fifty Years", Dr. 'Iohn Bain Sutherland, Head Football Coach: and Chan- cellor Iohn G. Bowman. With more than 70 years of history behind it, the General Alumni Association is now in the midst of its greatest period of development, with high hopes of greater things in the future. .i.l..i..i.........

THE CCLLEGE N ALL of your learning, perhaps the most valuable thing has been learning how to learn. You will continue to learn. Never will your educational preparation for living be completed. Always something new that is worth doing will lie ahead. In the College we have tried to broaden your interests, deepen valid purposes, clarify vision, and stimulate your imagination in useful directions. The College looks toward rich and useful living in the broadest sense. It is hoped that you have endeavored to participate in the realization of this ideal. Among the schools of the University, The College comes nearest to being a direct outgrowth of the Academy of 1787. "The useful arts and the sciences and literature" were taught then, and they are taught now. They are taught somewhat differently and other things have been added to them. lt may be asked whether, with equal success, we have perpetuated and added to the courage and energy of the founders, and enlarged upon their reverence, their vision and their faith. A towering Cathedral proclaims that these things have not been forgotten. But greater victory, for the Uni- versity and for you, lies ahead. Heads up and faces forward! We begin the next hundred and fifty years! Stanton C. Crawford I STANTON CHAPMAN CRAWFORD Dean of the College Stanton Chapman Crawford has been teacher, zoologist, pastor, and educator. He received his A.B. degree from Bethany College in 1918 and his A.M. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Cincinnati and the University of Pittsburgh respectively in 1921 and 1926. Dr. Crawford began to teach zoology in 1920 and he served at various schools including Pitt. From 1927 to 1933 he was Head of'Pitt's Johnstown Center and during the same period acted successively as assistant professor, associate professor, and pro- fessor of zoology. He then became Director of High School Relations which position he main- tained until 1935 when he became Dean of the College. Engaged as he is with his duties as dean, Dr. Crawford, nevertheless, maintains his interest in biology. He continues to make biological in- vestigations and to teach biology, for he still retains a professorship in this field. Dr. Crawford has written articles on both education and zoology. He is a man who is enveloped by his work and he does not, as others sometimes do, turn to an unrelated field for his hobbies. Constancy such as this bespeaks a'nature intent upon mastery. For his recreation hours Dr. Crawford prefers two utterly dissimilar things: he likes ocean cruising and walking. DEAN STANTON C.

TIPPETTS Dean of the School of Business Administration Dean Charles S. Tippetts, after working his way through Mercersburg Academy, enrolled at Princeton where he received his A.B. degree in 1916. His proficiency in scholarship and interest in activities enabled him to earn a fellowship at Harvard Law School. The entire course of his life was changed when, after one year, he left Harvard to join the army. His executive ability was recognized by the military authorities and he was appointed chief of a camp for German prisoners. He served in that capacity until 1919 and then decided to return to Princeton. Economics, rather than law, became his major interest, he combined graduate work in this field with teaching and in 1924 he received his Ph.D. degree. Dr. Tippetts served as professor of economics at the Universities of Iowa, Wash- ington, and Buffalo before he came to Pitt in 1935 to assume his duties as Dean of the School of Business Administration. To his students Dr. Tippetts is more than a dean: he is an understanding fellow, ready and willing to give advice and to aid in the solution of their most difficult problems. He has written and collaborated in writing several books, among which are "State banks and the Federal Reserve System," "Business Organization and Control" Ca textbook used in about 60 colleges! and "Money and Banking." The dean's favorite hobby is fishing and another of his recreational interests is listening to good music. SCI-IGOL OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION EFGRE most of you were born the World War had already begun. Hardly one of you can personally recall when it ended. You have grown to man.hood and Womanhood through turbulent, chaotic years. The depression has cast a shadow over your daily lives almost since you can remember. That cloud is now lifting, but others are descending. What has been your normal World has been to those of us who are older a world of turmoil and uncer- tainty. We may look back with fond memories upon things as they were before all this happened. But that is gone. The future of democracy is questioned and another world war seems near at hand. You will, therefore, be faced with problems as great as any generation has had to deal with. You will meet men who are selfish and dishonest. You will be so discouraged sometimes that you will wonder how you can go on. It will be hard but it will give you a chance to show of what you are made. You will need faith, and hope, and courage. To those of you who have them, to those of you who are strong, failure and despair will never come. 'I Charles S.

He received his B.A. degree at the Uni- versity of Iowa in 1912, his M.A. at the University of Chicago in 1926, and his Ph.D. at the Uni- versity of Iowa in 1928. Before coming to Pitt in September, 1934, as Dean of the School of Education, Dr. Prall had a wide and varied experience as an educator. From 1912 to 1927 he served as superintendent of four different school systems in Iowa. In the latter year he became professor of Educational Research at the University of Arkansas. The next year he moved up state to become Dean of Education at Arkansas State University where he remained until he accepted his present position. Dean Prall has a thorough knowledge of the problems of education and educational research and has published several works in the field. He displays an active and understanding interest in his students and associates. While living in the West, the dean cultivated a love for outdoor life. His garden, in which a variety of flowers bloomed from early spring until December, was one of the local show DEAN CHARLES E. PRALL places. SCHOOL OF EDUCATION AMUEL JOHNSON once said of a dog that walked on its front feet without other support: "The wonder is not that he does it so Well, but that he does it at all." To the seniors who struggled through 1933 and those lean succeeding years, We wish to express our admiration and our faith. The Wonder is not that you have done so well, but that you have carried on at all. Surely you who go forth in this anniversary year can face the future with aconfidence which not even the new dealers can insure. Our hopes and our heartiest support go with you. I C. E.

ZINNIKAS South High School I I Dr. Bruce said that while non-coZ- I legians may be great, Franklin for S instance, the University is the con- P server of all findings in human ' thought. 4 T THE one-hundred-fifty year mark in the history of our Uni- versity, it is well for us to look back over the long and honorable life of our joint Schools of Engineering and Mines. Nearly a century ago, when engineering studies in our colleges were hardly more than experiments, our University was certainly among the first six in America to offer studies of an engineering nature. Before the ' Civil War, and particularly since about 1880, our school has sent a steadily increasing number of trained men into the industrial life of our great Commonwealth. Our older graduates have and do occupy positions of importance in wide fields of endeavor and are responsible for engineering work of great magnitude. What they have accomplished must be a continued inspiration to you who are the present generation of students. In these days when the cry is ever for change, it is fitting to remember that sound educational methods do not spring up over night. They are the result of slow growth, tradition, and trial and error. The long existence and continued growth of our School and the success of its past graduates are sufficient proof that our methods have been sound. I take pride in telling you that we contemplate no radical changes in our engineering school curricula and that we hold fast to the belief that broad engineering studies, combined with the cultural advantages of a great University, will continue successfully to train young men for our modern industrial world. E. A. Holbrook SCHOCL OF ENGINEERING AND MINES ELMER ALLEN HOLBROOK Dean of the Schools of Engineering and Mines Dean Elmer Allen Holbrook is a familiar and well liked figure to the students of engineering and mines who frequent Thaw Hall. Before com- ing to the University, he was Dean of the Schools of Mines and Metallurgy and for two years, Act- ing Dean of the Graduate school at Penn State. Mr. Holbrook taught at Nova Scotia Technical College and was also professor of mining at the University of Illinois from 1913 to 1917. In addi- tion to teaching, Mr. Holbrook has been a super- intendent of mines in Montana, British Columbia, and Mexico, he has served with the United States Bureau of Mines at Washington and Pittsburgh, and he acted as technical advisor on coal for the NRA. During the World War Dean Holbrook was in charge of confidential work in War Minerals in the central states. In 1904 the B.S. degree was conferred upon Mr. Holbrook and twelve years later he received the E.M. degree at the Uni- versity of Illinois. Of special interest to Dean Holbrook is the business, safety, and economic side of the field of mining. He has been inducted into Sigma Xi, ODK, Sigma Tau, Sigma Gamma Epsilon, Phi Kappa Phi, Phi Gamma Delta, and " is a member of various other organizations. DEAN ELMER ALLEN HOLBROOK 72 1oHN A.

IN THE DISPENSARY The Dental School was chartered April 20, 1896 and affiliated with the Western University of Pennsylvania as its Dental Department. The City of Pittsburgh contained schools representing all other professions at that time, but those desiring to study den- ' tistry were compelled to go to Philadelphia or Baltimore. The school enjoyed a success- ful career from the beginning and in 1905 became an organic part of the University. The school was originally located at 711 Penn Avenue, but on account of its phenom- enal growth, moved to Tenth and Penn Avenues in 1901, to Pride Street and the Boulevard of the Allies in 1904, and eight years later to its present location on the campus where it now occupies three buildings, equipped with the most modern teaching appliances. Each year has seen improvements in teaching methods and equipment and many addi- tions to the faculty, and the school has established a reputation throughout the world as one of the foremost in its field. Its graduates are practicing in every state and many foreign countries, several in far-off China, Korea and various European countries. Its alumni number more than three thousand, many of whom are recognized as leaders in their several fields of practice, and have been honored by election to the highest offices of the dental profession. Two members of the original faculty, Drs. Iohn S. Ashbrook and Clement B. Iones, are still actively connected with the school and several others have a record of more than thirty-five years of service. The school has an excellent teaching museum containing many rare specimens of early dental appliances, and comparative dental anatomy, and its library is recognized as one of the most complete collections of dental literature in existence, including, beside all modern books and periodicals of consequence in English and other languages, many early and rare works and association items not available in any other collection. When the school was established, two years of high school education was required for entrance and the dental course was three years in length. The present requirement for entrance is the completion of two years of college work in science and arts. The den- tal course is four years in length. The School has a Section of the International Association for Dental Research, the members of which have done outstanding research in the many problems of dental pathology and practice. It also has a chapter of the American College of Dentists and of Omicron Kappa Upsilon, the honor dental fraternity. The school offers advanced courses for practitioners, and graduate work for those desiring preparation for specialization in such fields as Orthodontia, Oral Surgery, Dental Pathology, Pedodontia, Prosthesis, Anesthesia and Exodontia, etc. 80 . s lf. 'M ll 0 But the mighty hopes of the new W.U.P. ended again in embers, for in 1849 another fire demolished the building. N X' DEAN'S MESSAGE CU are about to commence practice in a field of health service that is of the utmost importance to l1umanity. It is one which only the dentist is prepared to care for. Continuance of the methods that have brought success in your undergraduate training will insure still greater success in your professional life, and to this your faculty looks forward with confidence. In recommending you to the University for graduation, and to your respective states for licensure, your teachers believe that you are consecrating yourselves to a life of great usefulness, primarily for the benefit of your fellow men. Your teachers will follow your careers with interest, and will ever be willing to cooperate with you in helping you to solve the numerous problems which will arise in your professional activities. They hope that you will continue to be students, and that you will feel free always to avail yourselves of the facilities of your School to keep abreast of the developments of your profession. H. E. Friesell H EDMUND FBIESELL Dean of the School of Dentistry Dean H. Edmund Friesell is a native Pitts- burgher. After his graduation from Allegheny High School, he attended the Pennsylvania College of Dental Surgery at the University of Pennsylvania where he received his D.D.S. degree in 1895. He entered practice following his graduation, but the next year he enrolled at Pitt as a special student and completed his work for a B.S. degree in 1913. In 1903 he became a member of the faculty of the School of Dentistry, and in 1904 he was made Dean of the School. Dean Friesell has received many honors, he is past president of the American Dental Associa- tion and the American College of Dentists, he is the recipient of three honorary degrees: an LL.D. from Marquette University in 19205 an F.A.C.D. from the American College of Dentists also in 1920, and an Sc.D. from the University of Pittsburgh in 1930. From 1905 to 1917 he journeyed to Cleveland, Ohio, once each week, to conduct a class at Western Reserve Uni- versity. Dean Friesell is a man of varied interests. He is intensely interested in American history and collects "Americana" as a hobby. He has written many authoritative articles in his chosen field, among which are "Organization of the American College of Dentists," and "Studies of the Cause and Nature of Dental Caries" fin collaboration with 1. 1. Enrightt. It was the work and enthusiasm of Dr. Friesell which brought the School of Dentistry to its deserved and recognized place as a leader among American dental institutions. DEAN H.

Students envy their enthusiasm and clannish fellowship. When their doleful chant fills the air you can't miss understanding the feeling of unity that underlies it. Of course, it's our famous Dents. Their spirit emanates from the central body of the students, the Dental Student Council. By establishing such an organization in 1925 dental students were made to feel and appreciate the spirit, loyalty, and problems that mix together to form our campus life. The Council does not pretend to direct the policies of Dental School, but when problems arise which can not best be settled through the individual classes, solutions are usually found when brought before the student governing body. The composition of the body is unusual in that it permits proportional representation, for in addition to the automatic membership given to each of the four class officers, each class elects one representative for every fifty stu- dents. Five faculty advisors appointed by the Dean of the School bring the total member- ship of the council to twenty-six. The association of the members with their advisors has proved to be one of the most important benefits derived from the council. Here class officers and representatives come in contact with outstanding professional menp here problems of a professional nature arise, and council is guided in its actions by faculty men well acquainted with such problemsp and from here the undergraduate member can take back to his group the solutions to those problems because of this association between student and faculty. Thus the undergraduate finds the beginning of his professional career. He meets his upper classmates, and is brought to realize his obligations, and these realizations are assimilated by him and he knows what is expected of him through the remainder of his years as a "Dent." True, Dental Student Council may not be so conspicuous on the campus because much of the "Dent spirit" is spontaneous in nature, but throughout the Dental School the council has the reputation of getting results when they are necessary or demanded. Many of these results have been of a social nature because the council is aware of the 'value of bringing the "Dent" in contact with social life as an essential element in the development of a college man. In lanuary the Dental Student Council played host at a banquet in honor of its classmates on the victorious Panther Rose Bowl team. Win or lose the Dents are always loyal to their team. Many football cheering section, pep assemblies, and victory celebrations have been planned and instigated by "those Dents." A tradi- tional affair, and one looked forward to with much anticipation, is the annual Dental Dance. Donald Wagner headed the committee and Bill LeRoy's Orchestra furnished the 5 ' , M 'i'li" i"'m music for the affair held on March 19 at the Pittsburgh Athletic Association. The dance ll" l "I" 1 -4 was one which could well be included with a Dent's most pleasurable memories of his - A l undergraduate days. . f Q 4 . . u V x 5 .5, V 'ti w.,-gy" g, ., 1 -A , . ' ' ' ,.

The work of the Council is concerned with the control and regulation of the three professional dental fraternities at Pitt: Alpha Omega, Delta Sigma Delta, and Psi Omega. The Council is composed of six members, two members from each fraternity. Every other Thursday these men are entertained at one of the fraternities, at which time the Council draws up rushing and pledging rules with the aim of fostering harmonious relations between the fraternities and continuing fraternal associations between the dental students. On December fourth the Council held the annual Dental Interfraternity Dance at the University Club with Val Garvin furnishing the music. The dental students turned out en masse for this, their main social event. Competition in the bowling and basketball leagues was close. Robert Berman of Alpha Omega rolled the highest score in a single game, and his fraternity brother George Sobel scored the highest three game total. The A.O.'s won the league champion- ship with the Delta Sig's taking runner-up honors. The Delta Sig's took honors in basket- ball with the A.O.'s following them in second place. The Psi Omega boys found them- selves unable to win any of the league basketball games. The new principal was a Bowdoin 88 graduate, scholarly and efficient, and eminently qualified for the chancellorsh ip.

Schechter, Lang Koniclf Rosenthal ALPHA OMEGA Alpha Omega, the University's youngest professional dental fraternity, is an inter- national organization. It was founded in 1906 at the University of Maryland. Alpha Omega, at the present time, has thirty-nine chapters in the United States and Canada. The local chapter, Omicron, settled in "Fraternity Row," Dithridge Street, December 13, 1920, as an outgrowth of the Odons Club. The fraternity was organized through the efforts of a group of Iewish dentists headed by Dr. Albert I. Wise, the present Praetor. The purpose of Alpha Omega is to foster fraternalism and social recreation, Iudaism, the spurring towards professionalism and intellectual achievement and the making of college dental training a significant force in the lives of the graduates. The local fraternity has seventeen members, eleven of them being seniors. Each year, Alpha Omega sponsors three annual affairs!-a Thanksgiving Formal, Founders' Day on April 1, and a Senior Banquet before Iune graduation. The Alpha Omegas are the top-notch bowlers in the Dental School. They won first place in the bowling league sponsored by the Dental Interfraternity Council. In the basketball league, they won second place. The local chapter was honored by being awarded by the national fraternity a. certifi- cate for having the highest scholastic house-average. Sam Binstock, senior brother, was presented this year with the junior scholarship award by the national fraternity for having the highest average of any junior in the fra- ternity. Iarnes Goldblum mixes dentistry with journalism. He was editor of the "Dental Rays," publication of the Dental School.

The national fraternity planted its first chapter, Alpha, on the University of Michigan campus fifty-five years ago. On February 5, 1903, through the efforts of twelve charter members, the Sigma chapter of Delta Sigma Delta made its debut at Pitt. The thirty- four year old local chapter now resides on Darragh Street near the Uni- versity campus. The primary aim and purpose of Delta Sigma Delta, a dental fraternity that holds a high place in the professional world, is to uphold the stand- ards of dentistry by inculcating in the minds of the students and of dental practitioners a spirit of paternal cooperation toward scientific, ethical, and professional progress. The Delta Sigs hit the high and low spots this year in the sports activi- ties among the dental fraternities. The Dental Interfraternity Council sponsored two sports leagues this year: bowling and basketball. In the basketball league, the Delta Sigs came out winners. On the other hand, it seems that they were better able to throw the basketball around than to hurl a bowling ball down the alley. In the bowling leagues, they finished in the cellar position. As usual the Annual Spring Formal was the high spot on the Delta Sig's calendar. Once a month, that certain house on Darragh Street swings and sways, to the strains of one of the fraternity orchestras. Delta Sig house-dances are high occasions on the campus. less Lanuti, President of the local chapter, is also President of the Dental Interfraternity Council.

Forty-five years ago, the first Psi Omega chapter was founded at Baltimore College of Dental Surgery. Five years after the origin of the fraternity, Nu, the local chap- ter, was established on the University campus. Now located on Belle- field Avenue, the Psi Omegas can well be called the grand-daddy of Pittsburgh's dental fraternities. The Psi Omegas have a twofold aim: to promote and further the social qualities and abilities of the members and to provide for the general advancement of the dental profession. In conjunction with the Pitt Sesqui-centennial, the local Psi Omega chapter celebrated its fortieth anniversary March 1. At the present time, there are forty-four members, twenty-nine of whom are seniors. The Bellefield cavity-fillers have built up quite a reputation for throwing lively and novel house-dances. All loyal Psi Omegas can fondly recall the memorable parties celebrating and following the Notre Dame and Penn State football victories. These Dent students have a weakness for decorating their house with banners and signs after games. The annual formal Spring Dance is the one event of the college year for which all faithful Psi Omegas live. This year the fraternity was a member of the bowling and basketball leagues sponsored by the Dental Interfraternity Council for the three dental fraternities. The Psi Omega bowlers won second place in the league. ln basketball, however, they were less fortunate, coming in third. Psi Omega is well represented in campus activities. lohn Adams wears an O.D.K. key on his watch-chain. lohn Bailey, secretary of the fraternity, also an O.D.K. member, held the envi- able position of varsity football manager.

Henceforth it was to be a student-alumni journal. The format was made more distinctive, the type of articles improved, and various new departments were added. Circulation was increased, and the journal began to assume a place in the dental journalistic field. It is now in its twelfth volume. A recent report of the American Association of Dental Editors contained this state- ment, highly complimenting the journal: "This periodical is today the most outstanding journal in its field. It is exceptionally well edited, good looking, progressive and ideal- istic in its editorial policy. Its editorials have been positive and militant in the cause of professional idealism.

HISTORY OF THE PHARMACY SCHOOL IN THE LABORATORY HE School of Pharmacy fThe Pittsburgh College of Pharmacyj was founded by a group of professionally minded pharmacists in 1878. Its founding anticipated college pre-requisite for licensure to function as a pharmacist by almost an entire generation. In 1896 during the chancellorship of the late Dr. William I . Holland, the Pittsburgh College of Pharmacy became through affilia- tion the School of Pharmacy of the Western University of Pennsylvania, and in 1908, of the University of Pittsburgh. In 1908 the Scio College of Pharmacy merged with the School.

LEONARD O'CONNELL Dean of the School of Pharmacy C. Leonard O'Connell was born in Pittsburgh, attended city grammar and high schools, and 1 was graduated from the University of Pittsburgh. He was awarded his Ph.G. degree in 1912, his A.B. in 1916, and his Phar.D. in 1929. Dr. O'Connell has been a member of the School of Pharmacy Staff since 1922, when he was appointed as an instructor. Four years later he was given a professorship and in 1932 was made Dean of the School. In the same year he was awarded an honorary Ph.M. degree by the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Science. Dr. O'Connell is affiliated with various pro- fessional organizations. He is a past president and past executive committee member of the Pennsylvania Pharmaceutical Association. Many articles written by him have appeared in various professional and trade magazines, and he is a constant contributor to such journals. He col- lects data from which he forms scholastic philosophies-a hobby which indicates the temperament of Dean O'Connell. DEAN C. LEONARD O'CONNELL HE period of formal training ends for most of you at graduation. I hope that you have caught the notion that education from a point of view is an inner striving toward something that is forever beyond our best efforts. Such an idea may serve as a real stimulus as you voyage onward through the years. To give the best you have to every task that comes your way will lead you inevitably toward a certain happiness. After all, real joy in life comes through serving others. My wish for you is a long and useful career rich in opportunities for service to your fellows. C.

I: V Z4i0lfL HISTORY OF THE N a small, dingy Fulton Building office, a handful of men listened intently to a tall, young instructor, loseph A. Beck, engage in a rapid-fire discussion of profound economic theories. Sometimes he paused to invite com- ments which not infrequently were generously, intelligently contributed. They were all business men ranging between the late thirties and middle life, who were vigorously seeking a knowledge of what was going on about them. It was the panic year of 1907, a year when, even as now, the subject of economics was of extraordinary interest. Perhaps that very fact had a significant influence upon what followed, for thus was born the Evening School, formerly the Downtown Division and now known as the Evening Division of the University of Pittsburgh. Mr. Beck, fresh from the Wharton School of Finance and eager to expound his newly acquired theories, had prevailed upon the late E. B. McCormick, then Chancellor, to permit him to experiment with a new educational scheme which he had observed in successful operation in the Eaststhat of holding classes at night for the benefit of those employed during the day. With considerable doubt and question, the Chancellor consented, but only under the strict condition that the experiment, to continue, must be self-sustaining. Mr. Beck's success ex- ceeded even his fondest hopes for less than two years later, in 1909, the Evening School of Economics, Accounts, and Finance was officially organized and, under pressure of continually increasing registration, larger quarters were obtained. Little did Mr. Beck dream that in the next quarter-century, not only would his experi- ment have proved to be enormously successful, but that both faculty and student body would have increased two hundred fold. By no means was Mr. Beck alone responsible for the rapid growth of the School. None other than that present-day eminent accountant, Frank Wilbur Main, was inextricably involved in its progress. It was he who taught the first accounting class west of the Allegheny Moun- tains. For the most part Mr. Main taught a sub- vgnggppvmamrvitffi 'fi Gan. f mnmngygsswa .

EVENING DIVISION IN THE EVENING DIVISION LOUNGE ject about which little or nothing had been written, yet the present significance of the department he founded is conclusive evidence that he provided a splendid foundation upon which his predecessors such as Dr. A. X. Ashby, pioneer in finance, could, and did, build. Exceedingly influential in shaping the destiny of the Division has been Dr. Vincent W. Lanfear, Director from 1926 to 1933. Immediately upon his appointment, he started the task of extending the curriculum to include complete courses in five schools of the University: The College, The Schools of Business Administration, Education, Engineering and Mines, and the Graduate School so as to meet the ever changing needs in the lives of those for whom the Downtown Divi- sion was established. He did so with such finesse and grace that it was hardly discernible. After having served as Director of the Downtown Division for a period of seven years, his ac- complishments, as an organizer, were recog- nized by the Administration when he was called to the equally important task of filling the office of Dean of Men. He was succeeded by Professor 1. Lloyd Mahony, the present Director, whose tremendous energy and capabilities have been greatly instrumental in the rapid growth of the Evening Division to its present enrollment of about 3100 students, directed by approximately 125 faculty members. I . LLOYD MAHONY THE DIRECTORS MESSAGE I . LLOYD MAHON Y Director of the Evening Division l. Lloyd Mahony was a small town boy. Born in Fostoria, Ohio, he was graduated from the School of Commerce of the New York Univer- sity in Iune, 1923. In the fall he taught mathe- matics in Fostoria High School, and in February he returned to New York as Research Fellow at the Guaranty Trust Company. The next year Mr. Mahony came to Pitt as an instructor in Finance. In 1934 after nine years of teaching he was made Director of the Downtown Division, now known as the Evening Session. His students invariably like Mr. Mahony. Pleasant and friendly, he talks with his students in their own language. No one is ill at ease in his office. The director has a hobby seldom encountered in men of his profession in that he sings well. For three years he studied voice with Ierome Hayes in New York, and his pride in his rich baritone voice is justifiable, as those who have heard him will testify. In his professional work he specializes in the field of finance. INE years ago a young bank clerk registered in the Evening School for a course in Real Estate Law. His job at the bank had something to do with mortgages, and he wanted to know more about them. The next fall he came back and took a course in Ac- counting because he found that his work carried him into that field, too. Then he began to take courses in English, Psychology, Mathematics, and Philosophy. Although originally he had had no intention of working toward a degree, after he had accumu- lated thirty or forty credits, he decided to keep at it until that goal had been reached. In Iune, he is being graduated from the School of Business Administration. The story of this young man's education is typical of the experi- ence of most evening students. The desire to satisfy some vocational interest brings them to their first evening class. Then they try other courses. Encouraged and fascinated, they seek more knowledge. The dream of a University degree seizes them and at length the last required credit is taken and the Evening Session proudly acclaims another who has earned every one of his one hundred twenty credits "by night." . I rejoice with all of our graduates who are achieving the goal set for themselves and Wish them success in their every undertaking. I hope that the sacrifices which have been a part of the price they have paid will return a hundred fold in the rewards of this world and in joy of living. They have many friends among the students and faculty of the Evening School who will cheer their every step forward, and Who themselves will take new courage in their accomplishments. I .

As the Downtown Division of the University expanded its curricula until in 1926 it became a university at night. A need was felt for an organiza- tion to provide a varied social program for the general student body. The Downtown Students' Association was formed, a constitution written, and a program of social activi- ties promoted. The Evening Students' Association is the successor to the Downtown Students' Association. It is an organization which consists of the entire student body of the Eve- ning School, because every student upon registration in the Evening Session auto- matically becomes a member. The E.S.A., managed by student officers, provides a varied program of social and educational activities and promotes the students' welfare. A handbook for students was published by the Evening Students' Association. At the beginning of the first semester, a reception known as "Open House Week" was held. A "Harvest Festival" was held in November, and a week of carol singing and dancing enlivened the last week of school before the Christmas recess. Four swimming parties have been held to date, and two more are scheduledg a bridge party was held in March and a spring dance in April, the annual dinner and dance was held on May 8 at the Hotel Schenley. The Association has presented Cy Hungerford in an illustrated lecture, and hopes to present Phillip Murray, assistant to Iohn L. Lewis of the Committee for Industrial Organization.

It was at that time in the form of a fifteen page magazine, which was issued once each month and sold to the members ot the student body at ten cents a copy. David L. Mitchell was the first editor. Two years later, in 1929, the magazine adopted the name of the "Pitt Downtowner" and continued in this form until 1931 when, due to financial difficulties, it appeared as a four page paper. The publication underwent one further change when in 1936 the entire Evening Division was moved out to the Cathedral of Learning. Its name was changed to the present form, "The Evening Session News," and it is now appearing approximately once a month on the back page of one of the issues of the "Pitt News," the day student news- paper. "The Evening Session News" aims to furnish the evening students with accurate, up-to-date information about the various happenings of interest, especially concerning extra-curricular activities as conducted by the Evening Students' Association and the several clubs, sororities and fraternitiesg to promote a closer feeling of friendship among the evening students, and to provide an opportunity for those who wish to Write to ex- press themselves. Requirements for membership on the staff of "The Evening Session News" include the carrying of ten credits of University work and an active interest in Evening School activities combined with some ability and willingness to express that interest in writing STAFF Reporters. . . . . .

Fecke ALPHA KAPPA PSI Alpha Kappa Psi, the first professional fraternity in commerce was organized in the evening school at New York University on October 5, 1904. From an original group of ten men the fraternity has expanded both numerically and geographically until now, after thirty-three years, there are forty-eight active collegiate chapters and twelve alumni chapters scattered throughout the United States and Canada. The national membership is at present well over ten thousand members. Delta, the local chapter, is celebrating its twenty-fifth anniversary this year, a charter having been granted on October 29, 1912 to six charter members at the University of Pittsburgh. The objects of the fraternity are: to further the individual welfare of its members, to foster scientific research in the fields of commerce, accounts, and finance, to educate the public to appreciate and demand higher ideals therein, and to promote and advance, in institutions of collegiate rank, courses leading to degrees in Business Administration. Members are selected from men in both day and evening divisions of the School of Business Administration who have scholastic ability and potentiality for future success. Since it is essentially professional in purpose emphasis is placed on the professional program, for that is the common bond of interest. Series of discussion groups on business subjects led by prominent individuals, with occasional motion picture illustrations or trips through some of the city's large industrial plants, provide the professional activity. A separate calendar of social events is maintained to promote fellowship and it includes dances, bridge parties, Sunday hikes, movie parties, and bowling parties. 'tn , .I O :lit 5: John A.

The society was organized at New York University in 1913 by the faculty members of the School of Commerce of that University. Admission is based solely on scholarship and character, and the society fills, in the field of commercial education, the place held by Phi Beta Kappa in classical education. There are approximately one hundred fifty members, fourteen of whom are active this year. From time to time the initiation committee invites outstanding students in the School of Business Administration to membership. A gold key is presented to each mem- ber at the time of his initiation. Since the fraternity is an honor group, no specified program is held except at times of selection and initiation of members. Therefore, its activities are limited to meetings held on call of the president, and to an annual dinner at which students, who have qualified with a 2.0 average or above, are taken into the society.

Such was the situation in the Downtown Division in 1935. Through the assistance of Mr. I. Lloyd Mahony, the Evening Session Glee Club was able to acquire the services of Mr. Fred W. Lotz, well known Pittsburgh musician, as director of the Club. The plans for the organization were announced and were met with enthusiasm. Rehearsal dates were set, officers were elected and the new organization settled down to prepare the music for their first public appearance at the Christmas Party. The success of this debut drew new members to the organization and work was started after the first semester on new music for the annual Dinner and Dance at the Schenley Hotel. This last appearance ended a most successful first year. The Club again led the Carol singing at the Christmas Party and appeared at the annual Dinner and Dance. In addition to these two appearances, the Club presented a choral recital in the Cathedral Lounge under the auspices of the Music-Fine Arts Depart ment of the Pitt Women's Club. Membership is limited to students regularly enrolled in the Evening Session.

The name Kedems was derived by taking an initial from each charter member's name. The organization was founded for the purpose of furthering higher ideals among University Women students and to interest them in scholarship, the arts, and social activities. Those invited to become members must carry a minimum of eight credits. Since the beginning of the school year Kedems has had at least one social function each month in addition to the regular monthly meeting. Included in the social program have been a Mother-Daughter Tea in the Evening Session Lounge, a Weekend retreat at the Girl Scouts Cabin at South Park, a Roller Skating Party, a Chop Suey Pledge Lunch- eon, and a Scholarship Benefit Bridge Party. These were followed by a Scavenger Hunt, Spring Dance, Election, and Founders' Day Banquet. The Kedems scholarship fund originated in 1931 and an unspecified amount is awarded annually to a member who excels scholastically and in extra-curricular activi- ties. .ff 1.

PI-II CHI TI-IETA Phi Chi Theta, international commerce fraternity for women, was founded on June 16, 1924 when Phi Theta Kappa and Phi Kappa Epsilon, two competing business fraternities, united to prevent further rivalry. The national founders of Phi Chi Theta were Mary Stoddard and Nina Miller of Columbia University, Anna Hall of Denver University, Edna Blake of New York University, Alice Wyman of Northwestern University and Nell Mc- Kenry of the University of Pittsburgh. The fraternity was organized in order to promote the cause of higher business edu- cation and training for all women, to foster high ideals for women in business careers, and to encourage fraternity and cooperation among women preparing for such careers. During the school year, the fraternity invites students in Business Administration courses to membership. A key is awarded annually to the woman in the School of Busi- ness Administration who, in the judgment of the fraternity, excels in scholarship and extra curricular activities. Two of the Pittsburgh Alumnae members have been elected officers of the national organization this biennial. Nellie l. lones guides the destinies of Phi Chi Theta as Grand President, while Iona K. Morgenstern holds the office of Grand Secretary-Treasurer. Dr. Charles S. Tippetts, Dean of the School of Business Administration, was inducted as an honorary member in November, 1936, at the College Club. OFFICERS Vice-President .... . . . Grand Councillor. . .

FIRST ROW: Beard, Campbell, Koch, Wilson, Gordon SECOND ROW: Davies, Widdowson, Succop, Price On November 8, 1935 a group of girls met in Dean Mahony's office to discuss the ate women in the University of Pittsburgh. It was through the efforts of Katherine Koch, a national founder, and Dean I . L. Mahony, Director of the Evening Division, that this meeting resulted in the formation of a club known as Delta Omicron. The girls were enthusiastic and at a banquet held February 22, 1936, their efforts resulted in the installation of Delta Omicron as the Kappa Chapter of Phi Delta Gamma at the University of Pittsburgh. Phi Delta Gamma, national fraternity for graduate women, is open to women of all professional interests who are studying in graduate or advanced professional schools. The purposes of Phi Delta Gamma are to promote the highest professional ideals among women of the graduate schools and to advance the social welfare and activities of women possibilities of organizing a fraternity for gradu in graduate schools. A tea, given each Fall for all graduate women of the University, was held on October 31, 1936 at the Heinz House. This was followed by a bridge party held at the Lounge in November, while the National Founders' Day Dinner was celebrated December ll, 1936 at the Ruskin Apartments. Dr. Lotte Lohstoeter spoke at the chapter's Founders' Day during the installation of new members in the banquet room of the Pittsburgh Athletic Association.

The charter members who laid the foundation for its successful development up to the present day, were Elizabeth Daflinger, Catherine Frey George, Alma A. lordan, Margaret lane Smith, Virginia Brinkman Steen and Mary Ellen Wright. The fraternity's activities are primarily social with the purpose of fostering friendship among women students of the Evening Division. Initiation is by invitation only and the honor is one widely sought by students who tread the campus by night. An annual award of S25 is made to the fraternity member who, in carrying six hours of work, achieves the highest average. A contribution is also made each year for some social service work determined upon by the members of the fraternity. Year by year the membership of the fraternity increased gradually until there are, at present, forty-two active members of Phi Theta Phi. One of the traditions of the fraternity is a Founders' Day Banquet held about the middle of April each year. Mrs. George W. Duffus has been serving as advisor of Phi Theta Phi assisted by Mrs. Marion K. McKay who was selected as patroness of the fraternity. OFFICERS President ....,..........,. Bertha W.

In February, 1931, the name of the organization was changed to the Pitt Women's Club because the membership had grown to include students in education, college, and graduate courses, as well as the usual business courses, by virtue of the tact that these courses had been added to the night school curriculum after the club was organized. Late in 1933 tour departments were formed, namely, Literature-Drama, Music-Fine Arts, Current Topics, and Cultural Hobbies. Each department has sponsored programs of interest to the whole club. For the past year the club has operated a sandwich service in the Cathedral for the convenience of night students and for the benefit of its scholarship fund. Scholarships of S25 each for outstanding scholarship and participation in extra-curricular activities were awarded to the following members: Josephine Tronsberg, Virginia Means, Kathleen Hester, and Ruth Thomas. The club conducted a planned social program, including a welcome tea each sem- ester for new students, luncheons, bridge parties, an annual dinner, and picnic. Depart- mental activities included musical programs, book reviews, and travel talks. OFFICERS President ....................,.

The Pittsburgh Chapter was organized on May 14, 1901, with eighty-one charter members. In the history of the Pittsburgh Chapter appear many names prominent in banking circles, the first president being the late David Crawford Wills, who afterward became Governor of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland. Conducting its own classes in various buildings in downtown Pittsburgh, the Chapter was finally affiliated with the University of Pittsburgh in 1914. Using University instructors in addition to the bank officer instructors, classes were conducted by the Downtown Division in the Cham- ber of Commerce Building, until the Spring of 1936 when all classes were moved to the Cathedral of Learning. At the time of affiliation with the University, two courses: Money and Banking and Commercial Law, were the requisites for the Standard Certificate of Graduation. Today, eight courses must be completed before the Standard Certificate is received. Six other courses and Public Speaking are now included in the curriculum, making a total of fifteen courses in all. Up to the present date the local chapter has 381 graduates. This year out of a mem- bership of 1343 there are 385 students enrolled. and a registration by classes of 505 stu- dents. The National organization is composed of 234 chapters throughout the United States with a total membership of 54,844. The national class enrollment for this year is 33,261, thus making the American Institute of Banking the largest group for adult educa- tion in the world. Membership is limited to those employed in financial institutions and investment houses. Besides the school work mentioned, there are many social activities carried on by the Chapter, and a Forum Group, consisting of bank officers, Chapter graduates, and senior bank clerks holds six dinner meetings annually during the winter months. In 1882 the Allegheny Court House 118 was raced by fire, and the Univer- sity Buildings were sold to the county. Ill? President .......... ......... I ames P Reed lst Vice-President ...... ....

At the first meeting, A. L. Baum was elected president and a constitution was drafted which was approved by the University authorities. Year after year, with the encouragement and support of the faculty, the fraternity has pro- gressed until it now numbers forty-six members and plans are being laid for expansion into other schools. The fraternity was founded to foster a spirit of friendship and good-will among the members of the student body in the engineering division. Sigma Beta Sigma has en- deavored to encourage proficiency in all branches of engineering through discussion of such problems as may be brought to the attention of the members. It has become a tangible connecting link between the faculty and the students of the Engineering School. Sigma Beta Sigma sponsors activities in both professional and social fields. The outstanding current activities are the fall and spring banquets at which the initiations take place. Frequent smokers, at which the members chat and become better acquainted with each other, have become the most popular events on the social calendar. The social events are augmented by business meetings which are held monthly throughout the school year. The Zack of cz schoolhouse, however, did not dismay the men of W.U.P. 119 Space was rented from two theolog- ical seminaries. THE R. O. T. C. CORPS 120 L CJRGANIZATICDNS The Thesp1an Corps Present Julius Caesar-1807 HE FIRST ACTIVITY in the history of the University was the Thespian Corps. Founded by Henry Marie Breckenridge, William Wilkins, Morgan Neville, George Wallace, and Thomas Butler in 1807 when Pitt was the Pitts- burgh Academy, The Thespians entertained not only themselves, but also the entire city of one hundred and thirty families. The repertoire was confined to Shakespeare. Years later, in 1820, obstreperous Thespians took to producing the comedies of the day. This was too much for the indoctrinated villagers, and the district newspapers hurtled a mortal barrage about the heads of the players for this degeneracy. Thus sank to an ignoble death the first activity. But the extra-curricular verve would not lay buried. In 1822 the Tighleman Literary Society was founded by a group of law school students aided and abetted by the beloved Judge William Tighleman of the faculty. This Society flourished until 1845, when the fire of that year destroyed all of its files as well as those of the University. From the Thespians Corps and the Tighleman Society sprang the host of activities that are now the very mainspring of campus life. There developed through the years the Pitt News, the campus newspaper, the Pitt Panther, the school's humorous publication, and the Owl, the recorder of the years. For others whose interests lay not in journalistic fields, there is a legion of specialized activities. For the linguist there are the French, Italian, and German Clubs. For the vocalist there are the Glee Club and Cap and Gown, for those whose voices are willing but not rhapsodic there is the Debating Club. The Quill Club beckons to writers, and the Iohn Marshall Club, to prospective lawyers. Catholic students have founded the Newman Club. The Thespians, from their place on high, can look with filial pride at their offspring, the Pitt Players. There are many other organizations. Self-governing associations, in which elected under- graduates cooperate with the faculty in regulating campus activities, give the politically minded student opportunity to put theory into practice. Social fra- ternities and sororities, with a common capacity for creating abiding friend- ships, are numerous. Students who have distinguished themselves in particular fields are rewarded by installation in appropriate honorary organizations. There is life at Pitt, outside the classroom. O E-' M O O U1 SHCJULD auld acquaintance be forgot, And never brought to mind? Should auld acquaintance be forgot, And days ot Auld Lang Syne? -BURNS DEAN ,THYRSA W. AMOS J' . 1:- DEAN OF WOMEN N 1787 when the University of Pittsburgh was getting its first charter, women of the western world were writing a charter of their "inalienable, natural, and sacred" rights to educational, political, and social equality with men. They were beginning to get a new attitude toward them- selves, and their place in society. They were becoming restive under patronizing declarations such as Rousseau's "women exist to please us, to be useful to us, to console us, to render our lives easy and agreeable." Their answer now was that woman is no longer to be classed with slaves, that she is born free and is man's equal in all the rights of human beings, and citizens: and that citizens are eligible for all public places, dignities, and employments according to their capacities: that marriage is not bondage for women, but a social contract between man and woman to be terminated by either party to it, and that all property should be held in common for the benefit of the children. Pro- claiming and publishing such beliefs brought constant ridicule, ostracism, imprisonment, and even death to women. In 1937 it is almost impossible to believe that the freedom women enjoy today has been bought at such a price, so naturally, for instance, do women at the University fit into its educational and social program. But in the world at large much yet remains to be achieved. Women-and millions of men-do not yet possess all the rights of human beings. The woman's charter held that "justice cannot be divided. It is for humanity entire-for that humanity which is a living unity, beneath all its apparent sexual duality, its seeming variety of races, and diversity of fast-fleeting individuals." Today, as a part of the celebration of the Sesqui-Centennial of the University of Pittsburgh, let us as women rejoice in the freedom we have attained and dedicate ourselves anew to the cause of justice for all humanity. In 2087, when the University ot Pittsburgh celebrates its tercentenary, may it be said that the women of our loved University did much to bring to men and women alike greater social, educational, political, and economic equality. Today justice is still divided. May it then be indeed a more living unity, equal and exact. Thyrsa W. Amos DEAN OF MEN OU seniors of 1937 are fortunate to be graduated in Pitt's Sesqui-Cen- tennial year, for you will be reminded in many Ways of the vision and courage that it took to make Pitt and this com- munity what they are today. You will certainly feel a challenge not only to carry on the fine heritage that has been left to you, but to contribute your best to the future you will pass on to successive generations of students. As gentlemen and Pitt men you will be expected to assume real responsibilities in your professional and community life. We hope and believe that Pitt has helped you to meet these responsibilities with the same self-confidence, becoming modesty, and tolerance as did those in the past who have contributed to her greatness and whose memory we are proud to honor and celebrate on our 150th birthday. Our best wishes and continued interest go with you as you leave the campus to assume duties of wider responsibility. Vincent W. Lanfear DEAN VINCENT W LANFEAR STUDENT-FACULTY ASSOCIATION A general campus referendum approving the adoption of the newly formed by-laws to supplant the previous Student Council organization led, in the Spring of 1934, to the founding of the Stu- dent-Faculty Association. The Association was soon divided into two groups. The governing body of S.F.A. is composed of forty members, thirty students and ten faculty members, and is known as the University Assembly. The central- izing force in the government of the Association is the Executive Committee and consists of the Chancellor, the Deans of Men and Women, and six students elected by the Assembly. The Association is composed of all students registered in the College, the Schools of Business Administration, Dentistry, Education, Engineer- ing and Mines, and their respective faculty mem- bers. Ably expressed in the by-laws is the pur- pose of the Association: "To provide additional ways by which faculty and students may work together on common problems and through these joint activities enrich further the collective life as well as the life of the individual at the Uni- versitv." Coeds were assured a voice in the determina- tion of the policy of the Association when they were alloted ten seats in the Assembly and two places on the Executive Committee to prevent 4 :T F I lm 'Pg "Jyw,'j'ljD 'g f I 1, l 1- QNZV VH..-f' . n, ..,, W. ,7 , I , , flu Q ' f V jg 1?

The Assembly is charged with the enforcement of rules and regulations governing undergraduate social af- fairs, the admission of new organizations, and the regulation of existing organizations and of general campus activities. Probably the outstanding accomplishment of the Assembly this year has been the very suc- cessful inauguration of a student cheering sec- tion under the guidance of Mr. T. W. Biddle and Chairman Lou Bearer. A special block of 800 student rooters, supplied with blue and gold reversible jackets and colored cards, provided stunts and yells and color combinations which demonstrated the Pitt spirit to the football world. Something new in the way of projects were the S.F.A. sponsored Concert Hours and Book Chats which, under Chairman Bill Stark's di- rection, in their first program before the stu- dent body, presented the famed Cardwell Sing- ers. S.F.A. has also sponsored numerous Student Assemblies of which the Notre Dame Pep As- sembly, addressed by Dr. Iohn Bain Sutherland, received the most enthusiastic support from the student body.

H It Z X ilumlnllalf 0 'I X Nxt FLORIAN MAJCHRZAK Plans for the organization of Men's Council originated in the Student-Faculty Association in the spring of 1936. A sub-committee under the chairmanship of lames Nicholas drew up a con- stitution for the council, the purpose of which was "the administration of all activities strictly pertaining to men students of the University of Pittsburgh, excepting those activities under the jurisdiction of the Advisory Board on Student Activities." Membership in the council includes repre- sentatives from all the undergraduate schools of the University. There is one representative for each 200 men students enrolled in each school. Schools entitled to only one representative elect a seniorp if two representatives are permitted the second is a junior, three representatives include a sophomore. Nominations are by petitions. Charter members were elected at the general campus election, April 28, 1936. S.F.A. suggested a number of possible proj- ects for the council but the duties were largely undefined. It remained for the council itself to investigate the needs of men on the campus and to determine its possibilities for service. A com- mittee on policy and study took up these ques- tions. A number of projects have been organized and operated this year while others will be ready MENS COUNCIL to function in the fall. Men's customs were ad- ministered by the council this year. Customs examinations were given first-year men and Panther pins awarded to those passing the tests. Later the Customs Committee held an assembly in Memorial Hall, which was in the nature of a court hearing. Men campus leaders sat in judi- cial robes at the bench and passed judgment on the members of the freshman class. Awards were made to men showing superior scholarship, par- ticipation in activities, and fine personal quali- ties. Men's Council organized this year the first program to aid men transfer students in making adjustments to University life. At a transfer smoker the new students met administrative officers and campus leaders. Opportunities in activities were explained to the transfers and they were given a chance to indicate their special interests. This information enabled the Council to help the transfers establish them- selves on the campus. Organization of a student loan fund for all University men has been one of the main accom- plishments of Men's Council. Adequate machin- ery for the operation of a fund has been set up and loans will be made starting in the fall of 1937. Aside from work on these permanent projects, the Council has aided in other campus activities. lt advertised the intramural sports program and encouraged participation for letter awards. Council participated in handling the Rose Bowl Victory Celebration, and finally it planned com- mencement customs for senior men. Evaluation of the progress of such an organ- ization as Men's Council requires several years. The experience of this charter council should enable the succeeding ones to progress rapidly toward the establishment of a program to enrich the experience of men students. In 1889 W.U.P. su,0'ered a sad loss. William T. Thaw, one of the Uni- 11ersity's staimchest and most lib- eral devotees, died in that year.

Some one thousand women at Pitt are a part of the Women's Self Government Association, which coordinates all organized activities for women and fosters a spirit of loyalty to the Uni- versity. A quarter of a century ago the Women's Activities Association was formed and in 1920 this association merged with W.S.G.A., which it had sponsored. In October of each year, freshman women are welcomed by the association in the oldest of the traditional events for womenaaLantern Night. This fall Ruth Shapiro as Father Pitt greeted white-clad freshmen and their senior mentors on Thaw Hall lawng upperclass women lighted the Chinese lanterns of the freshmen with their flaming torchesp and the procession wound round University Drive to Heinz House. With the campus a blaze of light and each face burning with the ambition reflecting this precious light, Alma Mater, Lois Follansbee, instructed the freshmen where to find knowledge and wisdomg both of which symbolize the thought, feeling, and desire for the spiritual light that the University offers. Hazing freshman women at the University today is as old-fashioned as bustles and hoop skirts for the customs committee is in charge of the orientation of the newcomers. Instead of making the freshman woman feel foolish and unwanted, she has become a privileged person on campus and is respected by upperclass women. Customs planned a brunch and a series of freshman mixer dances. Paul Iones' and Virginia Reels were almost as popular as the latest dance steps at the mixer affairs. At the conclusion of six weeks, silver panthers were awarded to worthy freshman women at the merit panther assembly. The freshman units ranging from publications to sports, and the freshman council are under the guidance of W.S.G.A. In addition to orientating the freshman, the association sponsors a housing board to aid out-of-town students, a student loan to proffer help to undergraduates who are in financial need, and a Scholars' Day Tea for the purpose of offering congratulations to tappees of scholastic honoraries. Approximately two hundred activity leaders conferred at Leaders' Institute, which was chairmanned by Betty Wainwright. How to preside at a meeting, how to take minutes, and how to balance a budget were a few of the major questions discussed at the Institute. Women's Day tags attached to the lapels of new spring coats, helped in the com- memoration of Women's entrance into the University. Then during Spring Festival Week, the identities of Senior Queen and Alma Mater were disclosed. Several weeks later the queen was crowned in a ceremony patterned after the ancient English coronation rites. And so Coronation is the final ceremony participated in by senior women before gradua- tion. W.S.G.A. is the first to welcome freshman women and introduce them to University life and the last organization to bid senior women farewell at Coronation.

Held COLLEGE ASSOCIATION College Association has a reputation for staging the lowest-priced campus dances with novel ticket selling features that usually draw the campus dancers. Directed by genial Dr. Omar C. Held, Personnel Assistant to the Dean of the College, the College As- sociation Cabinet is virtually a social group that meets several times during the month to attend to the business at hand. The Cabinet members are kept busy peddling one dollar per couple dance tickets to two Association dances each semester, the proceeds from which are used to bolster a loan fund that operates to grant short-time loans to needy students. At the regular spring elections officers for the following year are elected to a Cabinet composed of approximately twenty students in the College with each class given equal representation. It has been the custom for the Association to sponsor an assembly and present a prominent speaker to the students of the College. In the past year, for the first time, all University students were invited to attend the assembly. "Curly" Stebbins, crooning football star and hero of the Ohio State game, made his first campus appearance at the assembly and was an instant "hit". Advance press notices lauded Stebbins, who previously had been offered a contract with Ben Bernie's Orchestra, and packed the College students into Memorial Hall. A trombone quartet set the audience's feet tapping to the strains of "Sweet Sue" and other popular melodies. In the fall the Kick-off Informal, first dance of the year, starred an all-College As- sociation Coed eleven as the main attra.ction. Rose Nugent, fullback of the coed eleven, was to kick a football from the stage of the Grotto ballroom into the arms of one of the waiting males, but instead CA prexy Bud Beachler did the honors. Fraternity men mobbed the ball, but a non-frater proudly carried off the pigskin. With the advent of Thanksgiving, CA cabineteers sponsored a formal at the same North Side dance floor. Herky, the Turkey, was to be the feature of the evening as a door prize. Meanwhile the Meds did away with Herky and merely returned Herky's feathers and guillotined head in time for the drawing. Brain trusters of the cabinet attempting to devise sales ideas for the third dance held at the Hotel Schenley, finally agreed upon the selection of a Campus Beauty Queen to put over the dance. lean Lawson, popular president of Pan- hellenic Council and a senior in the College, who incidentally was off skating on the fatal night, was selected queen of the dance. Then, the Southern Spring Informal, final dance project of the Cabinet featured a stag line and a swing band as a fitting climax to the CA dance season. And so CA tickets sellers take a rest for the summer and plan new sales speeches for the fall proms. i ,U .2 f QF' mf' fig 1 'uanfageous fm many studvuts H10 JI new buildings had Hum good pomls ltr Q NM W .

YOUNG WOMEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION Indian summer, the Hearth Ceremony, Carissima, and the kindling of the flame of friendship in the Heinz House fireplace recall the traditional welcome of the Y.W.C.A. members to freshman women. Patterned after the ancient Roman ceremony, the kind- ling of the fires is significant of the new friendships and acquaintances offered to incoming University women. A feast of fruits and sweet meats was later served by Y.W.C.A. cabinet members, who were gowned in togas. Symbolic of the Y.W.C.A. is the blue triangle which represents fellowship, friend- ship, good times and a melting pot of thoughts, opinions and new ideas. Many diversified activities are integrated into the whole of Y.W.C.A. Foremost of these were the religious programs of the year including religious assemblies, worship services, and a freshman religious assembly led by Dr. Buttrick. The theme for the fall retreat was the subject, "Find Out What to Think" which was led by Dr. Hornell Hart. Then Association Night meetings were held monthly in the "Y" club rooms and Heinz House with Negro spirituals, square dancing, and song fests as features. Members of the Social Service Club of the Y.W.C.A., who are enrolled in sociology courses at the University, have led groups in Pittsburgh settlement houses and made trips into city localities and Western Pennsylvania communities, which have created deeper understanding of social relationships. Inquiry Forums on the pressing social issues of the day were held at noon on Mondays in a classroom in Alumni Hall. Iudge Ralph Smith, Phillips Murray, Chairman of the Steel Workers' Organizing Committee of the C.I.O., and Hubert Herring, an authority on international relations were among the outstanding speakers of the forums. Student industrial cooperative programs with industrial girls and students of Pittsburgh colleges, institutes, and conferences on international understanding were conducted by Y.W.C.A. clubs. For the purpose of interesting seniors in the community organization of our city, world peace projects have been included in these studies. Alumni Hall's candy and milk stand is under the supervision of Y.W.C.A. members, who manage the quick lunches for hungry students. Anything from potato chips to chicken salad sandwiches is on the menu offered by the Y.W.C.A. stand. Throughout the years, the Association has cooperated with other student groups for the best interest of the women on campus, helping to promote Women's Day, Leader's Institute, and other projects, campus wide in nature. From 1917 to 1936 the Association has been advised by six secretaries, with Miss Helen Battrick, present secretary, occupy- ing the Y.W.C.A. desk at Heinz House. The association, which is governed by a cabinet of undergraduates and an advisory board of interested faculty members and friends, has proved a unifying force on the University campus during its lifetime of twenty-six years.

YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION The history of a men's religious organization at the University follows the pattern of similar activities in other American universities. A century or more of intermittent efforts to establish fellowship of students resulted finally in a permanent affiliation with the Young Men's Christian Association which was expanding rapidly about the latter part of the nineteenth century. The Young Men's Christian Association was founded by Sir George Williams of London in 1844, and the movement soon spread over the whole world. Ten years later, in 1854, the first college Y.M.C.A. was established at the University of Virginia. The movement grew rapidly in the universities and colleges, and by 1877 so many college Associations had been established that a separate Student Department was organized. No official records are available to indicate the exact date when the men's religious organization at the University of Pittsburgh first called itself a Young Men's Christian Association. We do know that in 1909 a full-time executive secretary was employed for the Association, and that date is marked as the time of its officially recognized relationship with the general movement. Since 1909 six secretaries have served the Association. The first secretary was George M. Kirk, who wrote "Hail to Pitt", now personnel director of the Colorado Fuel and Iron Co. He was succeeded by Dr. lohn Moore, now president of Lake Forest College. Then followed Mr. Straney, Mr. Van Tine and Mr. Don Shumaker in turn. Mr. W. W. Mendenhall has been secretary since 1930. In all these years the name of Dr. S. B. Linhart has been practically synonymous with that of the Association. Dr. Linhart was active in the Young Men's Christian Association for over fifty years and was instrumental in founding the Association at the University. Except for the first year, 1909-1910, Dr. Linhart was chairman of the Committee of Manage- ment twenty-seven consecutive years, until his death December 11, 1936. In recent years the Association has grown tremendously and in many ways asserts great influence on the campus. The activities are organized around the Association's units Cclubsj each of which carries on a many-sided program of religious, social and other activities designed to promote personal growth of students. In addition to these groups, many campus-wide events render a service to a surprisingly large number of men on the campus. Some of the outstanding events provided by the Association include Religious Convocations, Inter-collegiate Conferences, Institute of Public Affairs, Inquiry, and a variety of social and recreational services. Freshman Camp, held at Kon-o-Kwee the first week-end of the Fall school term, is undoubtedly the most popular of the Y.M.C.A. campus activities. This year's camp, led by Louis Bearer, was the most successful of all and has more than adequately fulfilled its purpose of acquainting the freshmen with the faculty members, upper class student leaders, and each other. The World Student Christian Conference held at the mountain paradise- Eagles Merew-where the University of Pittsburgh last year had the distinction of sending the second largest number of delegates, was the highlight of the year's social and religious activities.

When the Girls' Varsity Basketball team was organized in 1917, few thought women's athletics at the University would make such strides during its first two decades. Impelled by the slogan "help the girls beat Penn" many contributions rolled in and made it possible for the varsity team to go East in 1923 and play the University of Pennsylvania, Swarthmore, and Bryn Mawr. The women, encouraged by a team which won practically all of their games in six years, formed the Women's Athletic Council, rechristened Women's Activities Association, and today known as the Women's Athletic Association. Originally, the purpose of the association was, "To foster clean sportsmanship and to promote and further higher physical efficiency among women of the University of Pittsburgh." Today, W.A.A. has a complete program, beginning with the traditional Coed Prom and ending with a steak fry at which the new officers are installed. Upperclass women dressed in their brother's or dad's best Sunday suit escorted the freshmen women to the University Club. With Bill LeRoy's Orchestra supplying the music, the Coed Promenaders exchanged dances and staged a gold and blue garden hat contest. Week-ends at Camp Kon-O-Kwee, roller skating parties at the Lexington rink, and Frick Park outings crowded the year's activity schedule. Tiny cabaret tables and European folk dances are reminis- cent of the annual W.A.A. Cabaret at Heinz House. Then for the Water Carnival held in conjunction with the city and Tech, P.C.W., and Duquesne representatives, lighting and costuming effects were comparable with those of Hollywood productions. A student written script was used by the Water Carnival Committee. Play-days for high school students were also sponsored by the association at Trees Gym. W.A.A. has broadened its social program so that by now it includes recreational sports, such as riding, ping-pong, and badmintong a Coed Prom, an annual cabaret supper, tea dances, intramural, and inter-collegiate playdays, occasional week-end camping trips, an intramural banquet, and a senior farewell. In this way W.A.A. serves to supplement the physical education department in obtaining the interest and partici- pation of hundreds of Pitt girls in sports.

Friday, Caplan, Punsky, Kelley, Fuhs, Spellmire, R. Friday CLUB London Bridges may be falling down, but the Bridge Club at the University of Pittsburgh is being built up. The youngest club at the University was organized in 1935 by the youngest certified Culbertson teacher in this country at that time. Through the initiative of Leonard Seder, a senior in the School of Business Admin- istration, the meetings were held in the old faculty club rooms in the Hotel Schenley, under the sponsorship of Dr. Iames S. Taylor, mathematics professor, Dr. Iules Labarthe of the Mellon Institute of Technology, and Dr. A. L. Robinson, professor of Chemistry. Three tables of bridge, rather twelve members in all, started the club. As the membership increased to twenty-six the next year, arrangements were made to use the Schenley Bridge Club at the Hotel Schenley. Then the club decided to seek recognition from the Student Faculty Association and within a few weeks became a recognized University activity. Students and faculty members alike are learning how to avoid trumping their partner's ace when their minds are not fully occupied with the hand to be played. Now the Pitt Bridge Club has become popular as a means of relaxation and forming social contacts among its members. Across the bridge table, both men and women concentrate on the game and forget about that chem paper that is due the next day or that mid- semester exam coming up the following week. Approximately fifty members are now included on the list of bridge enthusiasts. Leonard Seder has been the presiding officer throughout the organizing years of the club. The purposes of the club are threefold: to improve the bridge playing of the students at the University, to provide an opportunity for closer relationship between students and faculty, to make the student body bridge conscious and attempt to bring Contract Bridge into the College curriculum. The club feels it has fulfilled its purposes. Outstanding activities of the club for the past three years have been periodic duplicate matches with a faculty team headed by Dr. Labarthe. Though only one victory was recorded in the three years of competition, the student team at times showed a certain amount of promise. Weekly duplicate bridge tournaments are held for the members. In these tournaments, six matches were played with the faculty, with the members winning two and losing four. Perhaps the best student team in the Pittsburgh district was that of Seder and Frank Hockensmith, a graduate of '36, with both men playing highly commendable games. At the World Bridge Olympic Tournament this year, the Bridge Club hopes to be represented by a faculty team that will carry off a couple of the prizes. Dr. Holland sought also to add new departments. He began a program 135 of expansion that continued lonq after hc left office. W.U.P. los! rnmllurr famous figurr' 5 N in 1890. Samuel P.

With twenty active members who know when, where, and how to talk, the Women's Debating Association schedules debates before parent-teacher groups, church organizations, and various women's clubs. Organized in 1922, the Association is noted not only for its campus and intercollegiate speaking, but also for its extension debating. Four intercollegiate debates which took place on the campus this year were sponsored with teams from Bates College, Lewiston Maine, George Washington University, Penn State College, and Bucknell University. Extended trips to Dennison College, Marietta College, University of Illinois, and Ohio Wesleyan University widened the scope of the debaters, who made fine acquaintances with their opponents. In the spring, the women's team, together with the Men's Debating Team, were joint hosts at the Intercollegiate Debate and Speech Conference to which seventeen colleges sent representatives. But these active young women have other interests beside debatesg among these are panel discussions, one of which was presented at P.C.W. and another at the University's Parent-Teachers Association. Publications are also a part of their program. Foremost of these efforts are the pamphlets, "Helpful Hints to Heads" and l'Pitt Pointers on Parliamentary Procedures," which were given to various women's organizations. The general aim of the Women's Debating Association, is to produce speakers of poise and ability, and to stimulate debate upon subjects of public interest. An upper class squad composed of from 20 to 30 members present the debates. Tryouts for this squad are held at the beginning of the year. Monthly supper meetings for business sessions and social get togethers round out the women's debating activities. As an advisory group to the freshman Public Speaking Unit, W.D.A. sponsored several meetings to aid the frosh in gaining debating experience. Under the supervision of Miss Theresa Kahn, faculty advisor and women's debating coach, the Women's Debating Association has made great strides in the field of collegiate debating and a promising future is foreseen by the group.

X MEN S DEBATING ASSOCIATION Manager ............ Arthur Kelley Assistant Manager . . ...... Edward Springer Faculty Adviser . .... Mr. Charles Lomas In 1892 an old ambitiooz. of the Uni- versity was achieved. Previously an attempt to found a Medical School had failed in 1880. No campus activity of our University better exemplifies the march of progress, "from log cabin to Cathedral of Learning," than men's debating. For over a hundred years that time-honored guild of loquacious assenters and dissenters tread a rocky path being unable to establish a stable organization on campus restricted by inadequate financial appropriations. The earliest organization of Pitt spell-binders ventured forth under the title "The Tighleman Literary Society of the Pittsburgh Academy." That was in 1787. No great advancement was made for 137 years, unless a Debater's Union affiliated with the Y.M.C.A. in 1908, be hailed as the beginning of the debater's Rennaisance! But in 1924 the great awakening took place under the capable direction of Dr. William M. Parrish. The schedule was enlarged to include some 70 or 80 debates before attentive audiences in clubs, high school assemblies, Chambers of Commerce, and other distinguished groups. Holding as its objective, a desire to give students instruction and practice in public speaking and audiences an opportunity to hear an intelligent dis- cussion of public questions, the association has progressed notably in recent years. Tours have taken our debaters into every state in the Union and abroad into Canada and Cuba. In an effort to stimulate interest in debating among the high schools, Director Charles W. Lomas and Manager Edward Springer arranged an extensive program to be given before secondary schools. Taking as their subject the national high school question, "Resolved that all electric utilities should be governmentally owned and operated," Pitt debaters and teams from Western Reserve presented discussions before various high school assemblies in the Pittsburgh and Cleveland districts. It is estimated some 3500 students heard the University teams----composed of Bill Stark and Robert McKee in Cleveland and Bernard McKenna and Edward Springer in Pittsburgh-- defend or attack this vital issue. The men debaters opened the forensic season at the annual Westminster Tourna- ment, where a team consisting of Arthur Kelley, Stanley Rogaliner, Iohn Fritzmeier, William Stark, and Robert McKee debated the national intercollegiate question, "Re- solved that Congress shall be empowered to regulate maximum hours and minimum wages for industry." Also on the schedule for the year were verbal contests with Purdue, Marquette, Bucknell, and Williamette University of Oregon. The most outstanding event of recent activity was the radio debate with the University of Washington presented over the NBC network in a coast-to-coast hook-up. William Stark and Robert McKee represented the University. Another important feature on the schedule took a delegation of six to Rock Hill, South Carolina, to compete with debaters from more than a score of colleges and universities east of the Mississippi in the t'Grand Eastern Tournament" on April 8 to 10. The last event of the year was the formal banquet at which the awards for outstanding achievement were made. 137 FIRST ROW: McKee, Siegal, Kelley, Lomas, Stark SECOND ROW: Lehman, Murphy, Dietz, McKenna, Roga mer Stolzenberg MEN'S DEBATING FIRST ROW: Eichler, Acker, McCloy, T.

The primary purpose in organizing the association was to enable the regular scheduling of one hour each week at which all members of the department could meet to hear talks by men actively engaged in the oil and gas industry. Numerous oil and gas companies maintain central offices in or near Pittsburgh, and with them the Oil and Gas Department of the University maintains a close contact. the departmental society enables the students to meet and to hear talks by the leading men of these companies and by leaders in industry in general. Inasmuch as all classes of the department attend these weekly meetings, a closer relationship is also established between the students themselves. This has come to be one of the major objectives of the association. Such contact is particularly advantageous to the freshmen and sophomores in that it enables them to gain an early orientation in the profession, and to arrive at an early decision concerning their own qualifications for an interest in oil and gas work. The members of the society elect their own officers to conduct their meetings and assist in the selection and introduction of the speakers. A part of the hour is usually given to social or other business of interest to the group as a whole. When established, the society plan was unique to the School of Engineering and Mines at the University of Pittsburgh. Although these schools have a distinct advantage over similar schools of other Universities, in that the University of Pittsburgh is located in a highly industrialized community, the plan has, after careful study, been adopted by several other institutions. The Engineering Council for Professional Development, which in 1936 made an intensive study of the comparative qualifications of all eastern schools for the training of engineers, definitely approved and recommended the society plan of the University of Pittsburgh. Activities of the organization do not stop when school is over, since the Oil and Gas Association has a definite social calendar. Each semester has a smoker and dance. Longue Vue Country Club was the site of the '36 semester dance, then the scene changed to Churchill Valley Country Club for the second dance on March nineteenth. At the first smoker, which is for the primary purpose of orienting the lower classmen, President Steele gave each freshman an upper-classmate to act as his brother and advisor. This is an entirely new policy for the association and has met with marked success. It is felt by all concerned that the organization is rendering a distinct and profitable service to all oil and gas engineers.

For the first time since the announcements were introduced in 1930, they will take the form of invitations, instead of the old and staid formal announcement. The theme of the University's growth from a log cabin to the Cathedral is portrayed on the blue and gold leather covers. The invitations are prefaced with the calendar of the senior events and the names of the Commencement Day speakers. Included in the content of this invitational booklet are the names ofthe 1100 students who will graduate. These announcements serve as active reminders of the growth of the University's first graduating class of three to the largest graduating class in the history of the University.

And their fancies ran riot with a carnival, a "Circus Swing" tea dance, tap day, float parade, and a sweepstakes. Under the co-chairmanship of Kathryn Hardy and Louis Bearer, elaborate plans for three full days of Spring Festival ac- tivities were formulated. On Wednesday afternoon, April 28, tea dancers from near and far gathered at Webster Hall to execute the newest of new dance steps and incidentally to initiate the first event of that carefree week. After dinner and a change of clothes, the students crowded into Carnegie Music Hall for the annual Home Concert of the University Band under the direction of Mr. Lee M. Lockhart. Hundreds of students whistled the refrains of military marches played by the band and sang a patriotic "Hail to Pitt" on the way home. Bright and early the next morning students viewed the three-reel movie of University life. From lO:3O A.M. to 1:30 P.M. darkness envel- oped the Carnegie Lecture hall theater and afforded an opportunity for a bit of holding hands. Then Spring Festival goers climbed the hill to the Stadium for several hours of outdoor sports. Athletic exhibitions including races, rol- ler skating contests, and tumbling performances furnished excitement for the spectators. Car- nival Night on Foster Court, between the Cathe- dral and Foster Memorial, was the next attraction. Colorful lights illuminated the carnival booths of the twenty booths sponsored by campus organi- zations. Wheels of chance, bingo games, and refreshments were featured at several of the booths of the publications, debating, and dra- matic groups. A varsity show was held in con- junction with the carnival and amateurs per- formed before the encouraging audience. Pre- views of Cap and Gown skits were well received. Dancing under the stars to the music of some of the better known orchestras took place on the patio. Classes were dismissed early Friday morning so as not to interfere with the scheduled events, especially the Tap Day Assembly. Bill Stark, chairman. of the Assembly, suavely directed the program during which leading activities or- ganizations tapped new members. The Senior Queen of the class of l937 was brought forward and acclaimed by the group. Another of the senior women, Alma Mater, shared the honors with the Queen. For the men, announcement of the recipient of the Senior Award was awaited anxiously. At the conclusion of the program, the students dissembled and later took their places along the line of the women's float parade. Expectantly they awaited the floats as R.O.T.C. men and the University band marched down Bayard Street preceding the gayly decorated trucks. Then the trucks laden with fraternity women dressed as characters of the comic strips slowly rolled down the avenue. Lil Abner, Tillie the Toiler, Maggie and liggs, and other figures of the comic pages nodded at the throngs. Fra- ternity men had their inning with an exciting sweepstakes of push-mobiles. Each fraternity vied for honors and the men rounded the cor- ners in lightning fashion eager to reach the finish line. At ten o'clock, Friday evening, in the Hotel Schenley lobby, Spring Festival dancers again exchanged greetings. Two by two, the guests entered the ballroom where Chairman Bob Churchill staged a most successful informal swing session which closed the Spring Festival Week of 1937.

Edwin Ellis Pitt Rifles, honorary military fraternity and drill unit, has been in existence on campus as an organized group since 1932. In May of that year, members of a "model drill platoon" petitioned the Military Department of the University for recognition as a group under the supervision of the department. Work as a drill group under the name Pitt Rifles was begun in September under the direction of William Havlak, captain, and First Lieutenant D. C. Tredennick, assistant professor of military science and tactics. As stated in the constitution, adopted in November, 1932, the purpose of Pitt Rifles is to "promote efficiency in close order drill by affording opportunity to receive additional instruction and practice and to promote fellowship among men interested in R.O.T.C. work." For the first semester of 1932-33, Pitt Rifles numbered only 27 members, and only 18 candidates tried out, of whom eight were later pledged. First special work done by Rifles was ushering at the Chancellor's Reception in November, 1932. In Ianuary, 1933, members decided not to apply to Student Council for official recognition, and at the same time mentioned the difficulty in securing candidates to try out for membership in the organization. During the first full year of work, Pitt Rifles held two smokers in addition to presenting their first silent drill at the R.O.T.C. regimental inspection in May. Under the leadership of George Roll and George Strong, captains in 1933-34 and 1934-35, Pitt Rifles continued their special drill work and expanded their social program to include one dance each year. In 1935-36, with Alex Leggin as captain, Pitt Rifles brought their membership up to 75 without lowering requirements. Again the Pitt Rifles silent drill featured the R.O.T.C. regimental inspection. At the end of his last year as faculty advisor of Pitt Rifles, Captain Tredennick was presented with a gift following the review and initiation of new members. Starting the 1936-37 year auspiciously, Pitt Rifles found a record turnout of 125 candidates for membership at the beginning of the first semester. Drill for candidates and actives were directed by Alex Leggin and Captain K. P. Flagg, new faculty advisor, until December ll, 1936, when lack Withum, newly-appointed captain for the year, took charge. Other officers appointed were Al Kairys, first lieutenant, Elmer Puchta, sec- ond lieutenant, William Kunkel, right guide and historian, George Mantzoros, left guide and pledge captain, George Knox, pledge sergeant, Don Sipe, pledge corporal, and Edwin Ellis, first sergeant. Ushering at special events included service at the College Association Assembly, the Chancellor's Reception, the Scholar's Day Assembly, and Spring Festival Week. Highlight of the social calendar was the annual formal dance, held at the Twentieth Century Club on December 11, with Bob Duncan's orchestra. At the dance, announcement of Irene Maroney as first co-ed captain established a new prece- dent for Pitt Rifles. A smoker for candidates and a spring picnic were also planned. From the long list of candidates who reported in September, 41 were initiated as new members on February 26. Practice on special drills for the May regimental review were started the following week. 142 Afzmfzm 'Xl ii! .a yi A4315 t +7 ' J' -1. 1895 was a momentous year for the if ' ' 'A men of W.U.P.

I INCE this year's Owl has as one of its main purposes a depiction of the past of the University, it is fitting that mention should here be made of the history of the Owl itself. The first Owl was published in 1907. The Editor was lames Irvin McCormick, son of Chancellor Samuel Black McCormick, and the Business-Manager was Conant Van Blarcom who was also Superintendent of the school shops. They launched the publica- tion with the words: ". . . We expect no eulogy . . . we beg no sympathy." That their idea had merit is no longer doubted for the journal has had a continuous record since that date. Two years later George M. P. Baird, the author of the words to the Alma Mater, edited the book. The early Owls, which resembled literary journals rather than school annuals, sold for two dollars and were the size of school primers. The growth of the University and economic changes generally are reflected in the size and contents of the Owl of each year through the first three decades of its existence. Year by year the book grew in volume and in artistic value. The 1919 and 1920 editions, dedicated to the men who had entered the service of the army, were severely simple. With the return of normal condi- ditions the book, too, changed its aspect and appeared for the first time bound in an imitation leather cover. In a later edition colored division-pages made an initial appear- ance, and annually the artwork and photography became more and more professional. In 1928 the record-breaking 476 page Owl introduced the now traditional Hall of Fame. This 1937 Owl seeks to pay tribute to the glorious past of the University by com- memorating the l5Oth Anniversary of the founding. Editor Stanley D. Rogaliner sought to maintain the continuity of theme by the page decorations, depicting changes in the life of the University, each of which is accompanied by a concise statement concerning some event in the history of the school. In conformity with its central theme the Owl not only reviews the activities of the current year but traces the origins and histories of all of the prominent groups on the campus. None of the traditional features are excludeda the innovations are simply included as additions to make this a more complete record. The Owl appears, therefore, in a larger form than in recent years but an attempt has been made to simplify the style and to replace the stiff formality of former publications by the use of more personalized write-ups and more informal photographs wherever possible. Every effort has been exerted to make this 1937 Owl a more readable and more enjoyable publication than any of its predecessors. 144 The Dorrlm' was lo 1JI'0SL77If his 111.123- srmgc lo the mgm- slmlmils at lim and of Ihr: l7O'HL7l'LC'llCC'HLC'lLf of 1895.

MATVEAK JOHN L. GLASSER T is difficult to be serious about something which is itself never that way, but even a humorous publication has a history and this must be set down in as serious a fashion as the material available permits. In 1914 nine active campus leaders conceived the idea of a humorous publication, and the result was the Pitt Panther. Sid Hoehl and A. B. Divvens, Editor and Business Manager, tried to carry out the purpose Cas the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette commentedl "to dispel the gloom of the students of the University." Miss Beryl Pape carried on the editorial duties when most of the men went into training camps. During her reign, the magazine ran afoul of the censors, who suspended publication the next year. None of these early editions have been preserved. Members of ODK, Honorary Activities Fraternity, took a hand in the situation and set up the journal of which the present magazine is a direct descendant. In the early numbers, poetry was the dominant means of expression, and the theme of "love" was the subject of most of the poems. Cartoons had a kindergarten appeal and were without the artistic touch. The 1923 editor, C. V. Starrett, dressed up the book considerably and made it easier to read. At about this time, the students went in for satire, and short stories. An "original short story" was published in 1925 and labelled as such. A "Movie Number" had auto- graphed photos of stars of the day. By 1929, the editors were publishing a well-illustrated book of sixty-four pages. The humor was sophisticated and risque jokes were passing out with the Flapper Age. The price was twenty-five cents. Came the depression and the price was reduced to ten cents, with an accompanying reduction in the number of pages. At the present time, the price is the same, the average number of pages is 30, the circulation is about two thousand an issue, and the incumbent editor is Miss Irene Matveak, Ed.'37. The magazine at the present time puts emphasis on satire and cartoons. The issues this year have been varied in their content, including an Alumni number, a l5O-Year- Anniversary issue, a very clever Santa Claus issue Cgifts of chewing gum, candy, cigar- ette and pencil attached to the coverl and others equally as appealing. A special Cap and Gown issue, including the scores of the hit songs from the production "Trailer Ho!" was sold at the theatre as a souvenir program. The thirty-five staff members estimate they spend about four weeks time a month preparing each issue. Contributions are welcome from any student of the University.

BEACHLER DAVID RACUSIN he history of the "Pitt News," much like every other newspaper, is rich and full in its ever shifting, changing interests. "The News" has timed the pulse of the students, noted their reactions to the faculty, to the University, and to the many things which the University represents. Today, the student newspaper at this University has gone a long way from that day in 1875 when a few pages bearing "The College Journal" flagheads were pulled from the flatbed press of the print shop. Campus literary clubs edited that pioneering news- paper in the early days, contributing bits of news, essays, poetry, and scraps of student opinion. For seven years the publication progressed slowly, and then in 1882 the sheet was enlarged and renamed the "Pennsy1vanian Western." In 1888, a third change saw the flaghead of the student publication changed to the "University Courant." It was still, however, a hybrid literary, newsless publication until Frank C. Stewart, '12, stepped into the editorship on the new Oakland campus in 1910 and brought out the "Pitt Weekly." "The Weekly" was just about half the size of the present publication, but it was the first attempt to make it a real newspaper. It progressed slowly until 1932 when a curly- headed freshman, Ellis H. Tumpson, enrolled in the University, and that fall the "Pitt Weekly" became the "Pitt NeWs," a bi-weekly publication. When Tumpson stepped into the business managership in his junior year, "The News" was made a tri--weekly, and the groundwork for the establishment of a daily was laid. Under the present editor Edwin Beachler, the "News" is striving to print real news, guided by the dictates ot good journalism, and the wishes of its readers. It is significant to note that on Friday morning, December 4, the "Pitt News" really carried a "scoop"- the cut of the Pitt varsity and the story that the Panthers had received the Rose Bowl invitation-before it appeared in the city newspapers. The aim of the members of the present staff is to increase the scope of the paper and to that end they have, during the current year, introduced new columns and features. Among the most popular were "He Talks to Himself" by Milton Lehman, lr., "Sound and Fury" by lames Donoghueg l'Etcetera" by William Murray, and the curiosity-provoking "Cherchez La Femme." In 1897 a Mining Department was added to the enlarged School of 148 Engineering. Two years later this school was to become world famous.

W, CAMPUS ACTIVITIES mlfez With, the coming of the new con- iury the energizing sentiment on Hia W.U.P. campus was the macos- sity of a larger school. PITT PLAYERS .ll wh. ,. L Back in the days when the men in the University were forming an Inter-collegiate Prohibition Association, in 1916 to be exact, Pitt Players appeared on the University of Pittsburgh campus. Whether the liquor problem was more important to the boys in those days or whether the dyed-in-the-wool drama enthusiasts were few and far between is a question. It is a fact, though, that the Players group did nothing remarkable until 1920, when they were reorganized. One-act plays were the rule until Mrs. McQueen and Mr. Whited took charge. In 1924 they introduced the system whereby three or four major plays are produced each year. This system has been in effect since, although numerous one-act plays are often produced in addition to the major plays. Mrs. McQueen gave up her director's duties in 1927, and Mr. Amundsen, who was the director of Cap and Gown throughout most of the third decade of the century, was made responsible for future productions. Tragedy, in the form of Mr. Amundsen's death, led to the installation of Miss lane Ellen Ball, '27, as director the following year. The group began making rapid strides forward and soon produced its first Shakespearean drama. This was "A Midsummer Night's Dream," Pitt Players' first and only attempt of the Bard-of-Avon. The 1930-1931 year marked the arrival on campus of the present director Professor Carl B. Cass. Heralded as one of the most capable directors in the field, his seven years of production at the University have helped to place Pitt Players on par with the ranking Little Theatre Groups of the City. Perhaps his most notable production was the early nineteenth century comedy "Fashion," which rated a drama page streamer headline in one of the metropolitan newspapers. The audience joined in on the fun in that eighteenth century farce, songs were sung between acts, and all in all, it was the merriest madcap performance ever produced at the University. There have been many other productions in University drama history worthy of note. "The Cradle Song" produced by Miss Ball in 1928 had one of its earliest trials in the University theatre and created quite a stir in Pittsburgh dramatic circles. In 1929 the Players followed this with the world premier of "Black Flamingo" which later went on to much success in amateur as well as professional circles. Not only performers are served by this organization, for it offers students practical experience in all forms of dramatic production and managemen.t. The wide field of play production requires the cooperation of the entire unit and necessitates dividing the group into three separate staffs: acting, business, and technical. Each division maintains its own particular tryout requirements and student officers, a system which is of con- siderable aid in insuring more efficient operation. Members of all staffs are united in the social group of the Players which sponsors a dinner after each production, various general meetings, and a spring banquet at which time officers are elected for the following year. Participation in a play or in the business or technical activities connected with a production are the only requirements for active membership in the social organization. Theta Alpha Phi, honorary dramatic fraternity, taps into membership certain individuals in recognition of outstanding work for the Pitt Players. This year the organization under the direction of Mr. Cass and his assistant Mr. Charles W. Foreman presented four plays reviewed separately in the following pages. 152 Nino Imndrcd students were crowd- ed in the cxtrcfmcly limited quarters of I I1 cf old PITT PLAYERS SIRST ROW: Hadas, Campbell, Spear, Foreman, Kelley, Cass, Levin, Delmore, Childress, Tracht ECQCILDEOW: Helfgott, Punsky, Goodstein, Gump, Litman, Frankel, Roche, Hay, Harris, Braude, ein THIRD ROW: Blasek, Hirsch, Conrad, Madden, Devlin, Kessler, Akerman, Horowitz, Rugh, Reiter URTH ROW: Goldblum, Cooke, Blaker, Davis, Glasser, Veinegar, Saxton, Graf, Hoeveler, Medof OFFICERS President ....,.

Ri chard Crooks Robert McKee Donald Saxton Murder and mystery made "Cock Robin," the season's initial offering of the Pitt Players, popular and thrilling. The play, written by Elmer Rice and Philip Barry, was staged at the Pittsburgh Playhouse, Wednesday and Thursday evenings, October 21 and 22, 1936. Richard Lane and Hancock Robinson are both suitors for the hand of Carlotta, town belle. When Robinson is killed during the performance of the "play within a play," suspicion immediately falls on Lane. Investigation and "photographic eye" Maria Scott, prove that each of eight members of the company had a motive for committing the murder. The killer is not divulged until the last momentp the important clue is a pair of white gloves, which finally lead to the disclosure that George McAuliffe, the stage director, for whom no motive could be found, had borne a long-standing grudge against Hancock Robinson. Sharing honors with the fine performances of Joseph Letteriello and Helen Akerman were the technical staff's skillful and very effective lighting arrangements. Careful cast selection and good interpretation of character made this a most auspicious beginning for the Players. l54 41 UQ The student drive for an enlarged school was carried on in the pages of the monthly OOURANT Pitt's student publication.

This drawing-room drama about a husband who wanted the mature judgment of his first wife and the youth of his second was presented by the Players at the Frick Training School Auditorium, Monday and Tuesday, November 23 and 24. Ianet, the first Mrs. Fraser, is torn between a sense of loyalty and responsibility to her selfish husband and children and the heart-warming devotion of Philip Logan. Her husband, after an unsuccessful second marriage to a woman fifteen years his junior, tries to resume his place in the home without reparation for the humility and pain he has caused Ianet, his first wife. He finds, however, he must win her love and trust all over again. Shirley Rugh and Michael Kozey turned in two of the best performances of the col- legiate dramatic season. Mastering the sophistication needed for their difficult roles, they drew praise from all critics. 155 A SQUARE PEG LEFT TO RIGHT: Campbell, Blaker. CAST Rena Huckins ..... ..............

I Sue Scott lDoris Grennan . "A Square Peg," a Lewis Beach drama, marked the debut of Charles Foreman, Graduate Assistant to Mr. Cass and former undergraduate Players' star, as a full-fledged director. Classed as a domestic tragedy, the play involves the members of the Huckins family who are disintegrated and ruined by a domineering mother and a snooping, sniveling aunt. Misunderstood by his entire family, the father is driven to suicide. Daughter Mildred's elopement and son Eugene's departure leave Mrs. Huckins still blind to the havoc she has caused. .....l..l.. A difficult play for a college group to stage, the cast handled the delicate theme sensibly and well. Studied performances were given by Helen Akerman, Betty Knop, and Charles Blaker. The play was enthusiastically received by the student audiences who crowded the Frick Training School Auditorium on Wednesday and Thursday, February 24 and 25. Soon the drive, headed by the stu- dents, alumni, administration, and outstanding Pittsburghers, gained ' 56 such momentum that only the reali- A zation of a new school could halt it.

L ouis Riley Lyda Baltz Betty Brooks Donald Saxton Wallace Patterson The Pitt Players closed their season with the presentation of "Good-Bye Again," the Scott-Haight play which was acclaimed by critics and ran for two years on Broadway. They presented the fast-moving, hilarious farce at the Pittsburgh Playhouse, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, March 23 and 24. Mr. Cass in this, his third production of the year, used a cast that was, for the most part, new to the local audience. The plot concerns the misadventures of Kenneth Bixby, an author, who meets an old sweetheart, Iulie, in Cleveland where he is lecturing. He no longer cares for her, his main interest now being his common-law wife and secretary, Ann, who combats and triumphs over the amorous Julie, although Bixby does not refrain from paying some regard to his former sweetheart. The complications which then developed afforded many laughs. Andrew Cancelliere's and lone Williams' performances were noteworthy. The cast also included lohnny Woodside, eight-year-old Falk Elementary School pupil. Critchfield and Riley likewise gave able characterizations. wr 1 FANAJ uf ss.- ..':g5gtgyr 42 ily. sir!

It was back in 1908 that Dr. Iohn S. Ashbrook, '11, began to recognize a need among the student body for a "Varsity" show. In that year he organized the Cap and Gown Club, whose annual productions have since become Pitt tradition. Although the original effort was rather humble, and played only one afternoon per- formance, it nevertheless firmly planted the seed of Cap and Gown spirit. Between 1908 and 1912 the productions were "one night stands," but many men now prominent first gave their services in those years and their interest in Cap and Gown has been con- stantly maintained. It is interesting to note that the 1910 production, "Here and There," gave to Pitt the now nationally famous college song, "Hail to Pitt." In 1912 G. Norman Reis, '16, and Gus A. Schnabel, '15, began to collaborate on Cap and Gown shows, and for several years Mr. Reis turned out the books and lyrics, while Mr. Schnabel was writ- ing the musical scores. In 1910 the club made a trip to Zelienople, Pa., but it was somewhat later that Cap and Gown began to enjoy increasing recognition. As a result, another performance was added each year, until in 1916 "Suite 16" was presented at the Schenley Theatre on three successive evenings and one afternoon, and the club visited Altoona, Beaver Falls, Duquesne, and Tarentum. Cap and Gown productions in 1920 and 1921 featured Regis Toomey, '21, now famous as a motion picture star. "Done and Undone," the 1921 show, also had as one of its principals Harvey Harmon, '21, now head football coach at the University of Pennsylvania. That same year the club ventured a trip to Tarentum for two performances and to Greensburg for one. These trips were so successful that a large profit was realized, most of which was set aside in the interest of the University, and the remainder was given to the Alumni Hall Building Fund. The late Walter B. Edmundson made his introductory bow to Cap and Gown in 1923 and until 1929 he directed the shows and was undoubtedly responsible for the tremen- dous improvement in production standards which was evidenced during that time. The year 1923 is also important because of the undertaking of a full week of performances in a Pittsburgh theatre. By 1929 the annual productions had attained such importance that the old set-up of the graduate club was no longer adequate. It was obvious that a complete re-organiza- tion was necessary. Therefore, application was made to the Governor of Pennsylvania for a corporate charter. Since that time the incorporated Cap and Gown Club of the Uni- versity has been in full charge of the annual productions. Dr. Iohn S. Ashbrook, founder of Cap and Gown, was elected as the first president of the new body, and upon his re- tirement two years later was made honorary life president of the club. Twenty-five years of growth were celebrated in 1932 with "Silver Domino," by Mr. Reis and Louis M. Fushan, '23. Music was written by Mr. Schnabel, Dr. Benjamin Levant, '19, and Iohn St. Peter, '31. "Alito the Point," 1933 production, is important for two reasons: First, its locale was Pittsburgh in 1787, the year of the founding of the University, and second Gene Kelly, '33, present director of Cap and Gown, appeared in it. The Cap and Gown shows have always used original books, lyrics, and music, contributed by students of the University or by alumni members of the club. The busi- ness and dramatic departments of the productions are under the direct supervision of the graduate club. It is estimated that Cap and Gown has played before 310,000 people in its 29 years of existence. This year Cap and Gown has again gone beyond Pittsburgh to serve Western Pennsylvania. Beside a full week's engagement at the Nixon Theatre, the itinerary in- cluded performances at Syria Temple, in Bradford, Pa., and in Erie, Pa. 158 Even at this early date the Univ sity had gained national prominet because of its fine football and I bating teams. t n 4 V J i I if I ......-.-t 1 BUSINESS AND PRODUCTION STAFF FIRST ROW: Sigmon, Brown, Light, Spear, Scheib, Pieper, Neal 1 SECOND ROW: Lichtenstein, Forsyth, Berkley, Wein, Kairys, Kirkwood, Yeager, Ve-1115 THIRD ROW: Mugianis, Evans, Viehman, Holmok, Gordon BUSINESS STAFF Ray Scheib, Manager Patrick Cusick Melvin Levine Dan Lichtenstein George Mantzoros William McBride Harry W.

Theodore M Finney MEN'S GLEE CLUB The Glee Club, now in its forty-seventh year and distinguished as being "the oldest non-athletic organization on the campus," has had a colorful existence. When organized in 1890, by lohn L. High, it was part of the combined music clubs. The individual music clubs were not strong enough to present concerts separately, so the banjo, mandolin, and glee clubs banded together for mutual benefit. Apparently even this did not satisfy the patrons because in addition the clubs brought to their concerts outstanding persons of musical talent from outside the University. Dr. McCormick, the then Chancellor, was very much opposed to such a policy and was, therefore, most unsympathetic toward the organization. In defense, Mr. High, the director, issued a statement to the effect that the Glee Club should always represent the best in musical entertainment, even to the extent of being forced to bring in "ringers" to support the collegians, and that "the University might well be proud of the day when it could boast of an all student club." The day of which Mr. High spoke has long since arrived. Years have passed and today the thought of a mandolin or banjo club is something unique and novelg but today the University is proud of its well-balanced Glee Club of sixty voices-a self-sufficient all student organization. The last step of unification in the club's progress was taken in 1927 when the Musical Club and the Dental Chorus were merged under the direction of Dr. Walter H. Wright. Dr. Wright's capable direction can be regarded as being responsible for bringing the club to its position of esteem. Mr. Theodore M. Finney is now completing his first year at the University as Head of the Musical Appreciation Department and Director of the Glee Club. His splendid work is recognizable and a large measure of credit is certainly due him for the excellent programs the club has presented, especially during its Spring season. The featured trip this year was the eastern tourp concerts were given at the Philadelphia Academy of Music and at the Chalfant- Haddon Hotel in Atlantic City. In addition to the popular Home Concert at Carnegie Music Hall, the Club has been giving concerts throughout the Western Pennsylvania area and has appeared frequently at University functions. The group closed the season this year with an appearance as guest artists at the Pennsylvania College for Women's Home Concert held in the chapel of the school. Another well-known feature of the Glee Club is its fine quartet. Many demands for the appearance of this small group-from Father and Son Dinners to School Assembly programs----bespeak the excellent entertainment it provides and a wide appreciation of its musical accomplishments and ability. It would seem that the Glee Club is a training ground for Cap and Gown stars. Included with those names of men who earned activity-points for service with the Glee Club are Leo Cafferty, Bill Kunkle, Gene Burkhart, and lohn Werry, all of whom have used the star's dressing room at the Nixon Theatre. The Glee Club has developed into an organization which is acclaimed by critics and which brings great commendation to the University from which its members spring. In 1908 Allegheny was merged with, 162 Pittsbwrgh. With. the amalgamation came the announcement of a change in the University. President .... ....................EdnaRahl Vice-president. ..

Originally, the mem- bers of the School of Education formed a Women's Glee Club to offer an outlet for the musical talents of women on campus. But that was ever and ever so many years ago-- to be exact, twenty-one years ago. Today, any woman, whether she is in bizad, the college, or engineering school may join the choral organization. On Monday afternoons, if you are on the eleventh floor of the Cathedral you may hear the folksongs, lullabyes, ballads, and hymnals of the group. For two hours, the girls sing the songs they enjoy and Mrs. Robert D. Ayars directs the sopranos, contraltos, and altos. Composed of approximately fifty members from the sophomore, junior, and senior classes: the choral is known for its harmony and achievements in the musical field. Many campus groups as well as off-campus clubs and churches have been entertained by these future Lily Pons. Numerous University programs have been set off by the soft voices of the choralers. To banquets, luncheons, and meetings, these women have brought their songs to lighten the cares of their listeners. Frequently, they have social gatherings and dinners of their own, making the organization not only an efficient working unit, but a social one as well. Each year, Women's Choral presents an annual home concert at Carnegie Music Hall which cli- maxes the year's activities. The most recent of these concerts was in the form of a ballet with the tale of the Sleeping Beauty as the theme. Puss-in-Boots in all his splendor and the fair princess were the central figures in the ballet. The women's physical education department worked in cooperation with the Choral and trained the dancers for the ballet sequences. Colorful costumes and fine settings perfected the Women's Choral presentation of Tchaikowski's Sleeping Beauty. Deviating from last year's principle of presenting a ballet, the group will offer selections from various operas for this spring's annual home concert. These operatic selections will be something different from the traditional home concert of the Choral unit. At the conclusion of the year Women's L- -I I -v-Inn.,-vix,1 .nr Choral keys are awarded to all women who have been members of the organization for l three years. Honorary keys and farewells round out the Women's Choral activities of 1936-37. The change in name from W.U.P. 163 to the University of Pittsburgh WGS formally declared. The goal was reached on September 10 1909 when the new Umverszty moved to its present site and classes were held fm the first time m Thaw Hall Q E .2 'Inf' ,st vs- UNIVERSITY BAND rl X9 in 1 'UN l My xx U 47 nn Q 5 J A 1 I ' Q , . .

Interest, that has been smoldering among the students ever since the begin- ning of the 1910 football season, has burst into flame and we are to have a student band at last. Donald C. Kirk, '13, through hard work has organized the band, which now con- sists of 22 men. However, money is still needed for the heavier instruments. The Athletic Committee will contribute half if the students will give the other half, so you see fellows, it's up to us." So reads a "Pitt Weekly" of October 1911. The band made its first appear- ance at the Pitt-Ohio Northern gridiron feud in uniforms which consisted of scarlet felt hats with blue tassels. Their instruments were borrowed from Becher's Music Store. Such was the inception of what is now an indispensible feature of student life at Pitt. It was destined to pass through three distinct stages before it could be lauded by New York newspapers, in 1936, as the best band to march in the city for years. First, there came to the University in 1917 Professor M. S. Rocereto to assume the duties of director. During the war the band was discontinued, but re-organized immediately after- ward. Outfitted with blue overcoats and then in blue and gold capes the band continued its march down through the years gaining for itself new laurels each year. The final change came in 1931 when the band was incorporated into the R.O.T.C. to improve its faulty marching and general inaptitude. The musicians soon attracted wide attention by their excellence in spelling out words by marching maneuvers. Captain D. C. Treden- nick deserves a large share of the credit for the improvement. ln 1935 Lee M. Lockhart succeeded the aging and kindly Professor Rocereto. Captain Tredennick's transfer brought Captain K. P. Flagg to add glory to the 120 piece marching band by giving them many new and intricate formations to amaze football crowds. After a fanfare by twelve trumpeters the drum major brings his baton down smartly, and in an instant the field is filled with marching musicians who go through their formations. The band appeared at Ohio State and Fordham this year as well as in our own capacity-filled stadium. The band is a popular addition to any assembly and a radio-network feature. Con- certs are given for numerous purposes throughout Western Pennsylvania as well as the Annual Home Concert in Carnegie Music Hall. The organization is indeed a credit to the University it represents. x . . 1 3 1 164 THE UNIVERSITY BAND, 1936-1937 CLARINET G. O. Abels A. C. Ackenheil R. V. Bergeman F. W. Birnley P. A. Brinker W.

Rocereto in response to the demand for an organization which could be called upon tor various occasions, the University Symphony Orchestra has contributed most generously of its services for the past ten years. This year, the orchestra with its accomplished musicians has given musical support to all Pitt Players' productions. It has been called the "Chancellor's Orchestra" because it presents an entertaining concert at the Chancellor's Reception for Freshman parents at the beginning of the school year and also plays at the Chancellor's Reception for the parents of the graduating Seniors at the close of the school year. The Orchestra played over the CBS network for the program of the American Col- lege Publicity Association during American Education Week and over the NBC network during the Alumni Sesqui-Centennial Banquet, on February 25, 1937. As a touring orchestra, it presented its music at local high schools including East Pittsburgh, Evans City, Zelienople, Turtle Creek, and Carrick. Too much can not be said about the spirit shown by the soloists, trios, quartettes, and chamber groups of the Orchestra who demonstrated their versatility at the ODK banquet, and at the upperclass Mothers' Tea. At the Annual Home Concert a well-balanced program of fine musical selections was presented. With a farewell dance and dinner, the members gather tor the adjourn- ment ot a worthwhile musical and social activity which is tending, year by year, to be- come a major activity at Pitt. As it grows, the University Symphony Orchestra succeeds in bringing together accomplished musicians and stimulating a finer appreciation of instrumental music in the student body. 11' Elf?

MOBTAR BOARD A black cap, a golden tassel, and a flowing gown is the reflection in the mirror of the Mortar Boarders. Symbolizing the seniority of its members, Mortar Board is the national senior women's activities fraternity. During Commencement Week in the year 1916, Alpha Lambda Nu, a local women's activities fraternity was founded by a number of seniors and juniors. In 1923 Alpha Lambda Nu became the University of Pittsburgh's chapter of Mortar Board. The purpose of this organization is to advance spirit among the seniors, to promote college loyalty, to recognize and encourage leadership, to honor fine college women, and to set a definite scholarship standard which must be met by candi- dates for membership. Not only do members of Mortar Board exemplify these character- istics, but they render service to the University. This year's chapter of Mortar Board began its season of service when the members ushered at Commencement and aided at the Chancellor's Reception for the parent's of seniors. The members also served as Senior Mentors to freshmen during the first eight weeks of the first semester. At the Chancellor's Reception for the parents of freshmen, members of Mortar Board were honorary aides. During the Community Fund Drive, they acted as solicitors of student pledges. How to get a job and how to lose a job during an interview was a feature of the Vocational Clinic for women at which these senior women entertained the undergraduates with several skits presenting the various angles of securing a position. On Scholar's Day Mortar Board acted as aides at the Congratu- lations Hour Tea and guided visitors through the Cathedral during the Annual Alumni Home-Coming celebration. Alums had a bird's eye view of the city and marveled at the luxurious new libraries. Then, too, Pittsburgh's chapter of Mortar Board honor senior women ot high aca- demic standing at a scholastic dinner. Graduation collars which will brighten the cap and gown robes of senior women at the Commencement exercises were made by Mortar Boarders. Rummaging in attics, cupboards, and cellars, wearers of the Mortar Board, gathered enough rummage for a most successful sale. The usual round of monthly meetings was broken by a meeting at Phyllis Tabor's home. At these meetings the members, who are representatives of all the leading campus activities for women, discuss campus problems. At one meeting Miss Ellen W. Fernon, Swarthmore '31, who is Section director of Mortar Board spoke of her experiences at other Mortar Board chapters. Previous to the meeting, Miss Fernon had lunch with the faculty advisers, and then held a series of appointments with the executive committee. In accord with its ideals, Mortar Board does not aim to be as active as other organizations, rather it acts as an integrating force for women's activities. President .......................

CMICRON DELTA KAPPA When a prominent Senior with his coat open displays conspicuously a familiar gold key he is almost certain to be recognized as a member of Omicron Delta Kappa, men's national honorary activities fraternity. Founded in 1914 at Washington and Lee University to recognize men who have attained a high standard of efficiency in collegiate activities and to inspire others to strive for conspicuous attainments along similar lines, the O.D.K. idea spread like wildfire until chapters were located in forty different American colleges and universities. Gamma circle of Omicron Delta Kappa was estab- lished in 1916 at the University of Pittsburgh to bring together members of the faculty and outstanding men of the student body on a basis of mutual interest and understanding. Starting at the end of the first period on Thursday morning, November 24, fourteen names were posted every half hour on Omicron Delta Kappa's key on Activities Walk between State and Thaw Halls. In honor of the occasion, tappees and members of the O.D.K. circle wore blue carnations and pledge bars. Initiation of the tappees took place at the annual Founders' Day Banquet, December 7, at the Hotel Schenley. Dr. Robert C. Clothier, President of Rutgers University and former Dean of Men at Pitt, addressed the fraternity. This year O.D.K. continued to hold a place of eminence on the campus. The smoothness with which the University functions were run this year can be attributed, in a large measure, to O.D.K. brothers who served as aides. Their dignity and experience in supervising the general spring elections have been recognized and appreciated both by the faculty and the student body. Omicron Delta Kappa also supervises and sponsors the selection of the Senior Award although the actual selection is made by representatives of the Dean of Men's office and the faculty. Business luncheon meetings are held twice a month. The highlight of the season's activities was the national convention held at the Biltmore Hotel, Atlanta, Georgia, attended by C. Stanton Belfour, Albert Barr, David Racusin, Edwin Beachler, Harry Robinson and lohn Glasser of the University's Gamma Circle. Mr. Belfour acted as Chairman of the Nominations Committee and Mr. Barr served on the Credentials Committee at the convention. All the delegates reported that the reputation borne by "southern hospitality" is justified. Omicron Delta Kappa ended the year's activities with an initiation banquet held at the College Club in May. Those men tapped on Spring Festival Tap Day were inducted into the organization with the formal ritual which preceded the dinner.

Patterson M Pat terson, Marshall, Simpson In Anglo-Saxon times, throughout the courts of England, ladies were called Cwens. With the passing of centuries, the terms have changed, though the meaning has not, and now in modern times, on the campus of the University, Cwens are called ladies. These ladies, recognized by their colors, silver and garnet, and by their symbols, the crown and sceptor, are sophomore women. They are tapped to the honorary society of Cwens because of their lovely manners, their spirit of cooperation, their promise of leadership, and their records of scholarship. It is the purpose of Cwens to promote these same qualities among the women of the freshman class, and to be, in every way, ladies of service. In keeping with this spirit of service, during the year 1936-37, twenty- seven Cwens acted as aides at numerous University functions. At the High Tea for freshman women in September, Cwens donned summer formals to help greet the new women and their senior mentors. While the parents of freshman men and women received their off-spring's grades, Cwens played the role of hostess offering ice cream and pastries to sooth the anxious parents. One of the highlights of the year was the national convention held at Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, which was attended by Dorothy Dering, president of this year's chapter, Mary lane Beachler, president of the chapter of 1935-36, and Thyrsa Agness Amos, Cwen '35-'36. At the convention a new con- stitution and ritual were set up, and a reorganization of the national organization was brought about during the business sessions. And once again, the wearers of the crown and sceptor published their annual directory with the name, address, phone number, school and year of each woman on campus. Good salesmanship plus a lot of hard work sold 400 of the red bound booklets for these active Cwens. Santa Claus visited the girls and their Christmas party was most successful. "Trains, bells, and whistles" were gratefully received by the sophomores. In February a get aCWENted party was held for incoming freshmen and the month before the Druids and Cwens collaborated on a tea dance at the Rainbow Room of Webster Hall. Still later in the year, the Carnegie Tech sister chapter, invaded the campus to attend King Arthur's Round Table.

In 1907 a group of prominent sophomores at Pennsylvania State College decided to form an honorary fraternity, member- ship in which was to be conferred upon those freshmen who had distinguished themselves by service to their school during their first year on a campus. Delta Chapter at the University was chartered in l92O and is the second oldest chapter in the organization. The group quickly assumed a role of importance on the campus. In 1930 the national convention, with six other chapters in attendance, was held on the Pitt Campus. Membership rosters in the past have carried many outstanding names, among them the names of such athletic luminaries as Ioe Donchess, Charley Hyatt, and Alec Fox. Druid activities are of a varied nature. This year the Druids opened their season with the smoker for incoming freshmen, which has come to be an annual event awaited with much eagerness. Dr. "lock" Sutherland, himself a Druid, delighted the new men who gathered in the Logan Armory with several football yarns, as only he can tell them. Dr. Cliff Carlson and several campus activity leadersffEd Beachler, News Editor, Stan Rogaliner, Owl Editor, and Arthur Kelley, President of Pitt Playersffalso addressed the assembled guests. Four men were tapped at the smoker: Francis Durkin, Ray Light, lames Markezin, and Richard Rhoda. Several tea dances were sponsored by the wearers of the skull and cross bones, fthe Druid embleml and it was at one of these affairs that Dr. lohn Geise and Mr. Robert Graham were tapped as honorary members. President Len Levison and Sid Tumpson, Conclave Chairman, formulated the plans for the national convention of Druids held on the campus late in the Spring. The primary purpose for the venture was to instill new life into the dormant national organization. All the active chapters were represented and effort is being exerted by them to reestab- lish those which have lapsed into inactivity. Other aims of the conclave were to redraft the constitution, to elect new national officers and to provide the national organization with a permanent secretary. The growing importance of extra-curricular activities as a vital part of a well-rounded education places a new value on Druids, because it is the organization which spurs freshmen to enter activities early in order to fulfill the requirements for admission.

The asbestos curtain slid silently into place as the noisy crowd keeping time with the orchestra pushed its way toward the exits ot the Nixon Theater. Another Cap and Gown success was history. To prevent the complete loss of interest until a month before the next show, a small number of outstanding performers organized the Undergraduate Cap and Gown Club in 1927. Members of this club have been vitally interested in improving the show for the student body. For that purpose men were tapped to membership who were recognized as out- standing in the production of the show. Until this year to be eligible for tapping, a record of two years service in the cast or chorus or three years on the production staff was necessary. Another activity of the club is to act in an advisory capacity during the active production of the show. There is something about a Cap and Gown show that gives spirit and enthusiasm backstage as connoted by the old cry, "Reform, Reform, we'll reform the world." That is what the Undergraduate Club endeavors to capture and nurture. This past year the group broke away from tradition when men who had only one year's experience in a Cap and Gown production were tapped to membership. Another innovation was made by the Undergraduate Club under the direction of President Ben Baskin. Rumors spread that the club was going to give a dance, not a common ordinary run-of-the-mine affair, but a costume dance, something new for this generation of stu- dents. The list of names as committee members included those of quite a few of the school's most fair and energetic ticket salesladies. From these goodwill agents students purchased ducats for the dance which was held at the Pittsburgh Country Club, Cctober thirtieth, with a new dance band sensation, Charles Pallos, occupying the band stand. An initiation banquet for those men tapped at the dance was held at the Cathedral Mansions on December tenth. Movies of last year's show featured the program. Later in the year Bill Kunkel made arrangements for a little tea dancing at Webster Hall and the usual crowd of tea dancers were in attendance. With attainment, personality, and loyalty as membership qualifications, President Baskin announced the Cap and Gown Club recruits in an impressive Tap Day ceremony during Spring Festival Week.

As a result, pre-legal students on the University of Pittsburgh campus, organized John Marshall Club in 1921. Those early aspirants to the heights attained by the immortal Chief Justice John Marshall, proposed as their purpose and ideal, "to promote closer union between pre-legal students and to broaden the outlook which these students may have, by presenting before them men worthy of acclaim in their respective callings." Early in the club's history, therefore, at their regular noon luncheons, prominent legal figures including Judge Gustav L. Schramm, together with progressive business men, gave the members an insight into the profession of law and strove to create closer social relations between student and lawyer. These customs and ideals have remained steadfastly unchanged in the present club. The organization has grown to 30 active members in the sixteen years since its inception. This year's activities began auspiciously on October 28, with a student reception chairmanned by Stanley D. Rogaliner. All students interested in Law were invited to the affair which was held in the new home of the Law School on the fourteenth floor of the Cathedral. Sixteen students were tapped to membership and were later entertained at an Initiation Banquet held at the College Club on January 8, 1937. This latter affair featured an address by Judge Elder W. Marshall of the Court of Common Pleas of Allegheny County, whose subject was "The New Year in the Courts." On another gzgasion, Sheriff Frank I. Gollmar spoke to the group on "The Functions of a Sheriff's 1ce." The club has made a determined effort to contact other schools, seeking other pre- legal groups in the hope of nationalization for John Marshall. Members are recruited from all political science and economics classes. Applicants must have forty-five credits and a quality point average of 1.6 to be eligible for membership. Those tapped at the last Scholar's Day Tapping include: Charles Allen, Leonard Berkowitz, John Cochrane, Dominic Cupelli, John Fullerton, Esther Goldhaber, Marshall Greco, Sidney Herskowitz, Ruth Hilsenrath, Harold Hoffman, Paul Kromer, Melvin Levine, James Marquis, Harry Miller, Herbert Parnes, Herbert Rackoff, William Schmalzried, Brooks Sipes, Bree Smith, Nicholas Spanos, John Spina, Edward Springer, Jeannette Swartz, Walter Toerge, and Samuel Werlinich.

The men so honored were all members of Alpha Delta Epsilon, a military fraternity, started ten years before by a group of cadet officers in the Coast Artillery unit at Pitt. To develop the esp:-it de corps within the corps, to further the aims of the National Defense Act, and to promote social activities among its members was the threefold purpose of A.D.E. This organization brought about an increased interest in military affairs at the University and is credited as being respon- sible for Pitt's winning the cup for general excellence in 1922, 1926, and 1927 at Fort Monroe during summer camp. The arrival of Major L. P. Horsfall for duty at the Uni- versity put renewed vigor and life into the military department. He suggested the colorful and popular Military Ball, reorganized the inactive A.D.E., and made members of the Medical Corps eligible for tapping into the fraternity which had Herbert Hoover, General Iohn I. Pershing, and Major General Leonard Wood as honorary members. In 1929 when D. Company, 7th Regiment was chartered at Pitt, it endeavored not only to bring into being a closer organization and relationship among the various military departments scattered through our American universities and colleges as set forth in its constitution, but also to weld its own department into a closer unit. It strives to develop in its members the qualities of efficient officers and to prepare them to give military information in their communities. Only outstanding men in the advance corps are tapped to membership. Fall tapping follows a banquet, winter tapping occurs at the annual winter dance, and spring tapping is at the annual University Tap Day during Spring Festival Week. Regardless of when men are tapped, none escape the rigorous "hell week" that is climaxed by a night in South Park where strange things happen. Aspiring Iuniors this year were introduced to their activities at a smoker in Trees Gym prior to the winter tapping at the formal dance at the Pines. Alex Leggin and Howard Auld journeyed as delegates to the convention at North Carolina University during the first semester this year. Confronted with this challenging 174 situation, Dr. Bowman envisaged a skyscraper university, a growth up- ward instead of outward. no OFFICERS President .......,..........

The human race, it is said, possesses a singular and somewhat abused attribute, commonly referred to as the "gift of gab." In an effort to develop this distinguishing characteristic, Delta Sigma Rho was established "to encourage sincere public speaking." Professors Eugene E. McDermott of the University of Minnesota, and Henry E. Gordon of the University of Iowa are the gentlemen to whom credit is due for the founding of this Honorary Forensic Society. It was in an exchange of letters, in 1904, that each, un- known to the other, proposed the formation of such an intercollegiate organization. Delegates from seven universities met at the Victoria Hotel, in Chicago, on Friday, April 13, 1906. Carefully prepared rules of procedure and organization were adopted. These men, possessed of the highest of ideals, wished not merely to found a professional society, but an honor group to be controlled largely by the alumni and the faculty sponsors in arts colleges of standard grade. Membership was only to be extended to those who had actively participated in some intercollegiate forensic contest, thereby eliminating so called "honorary" members. By 1911 fifteen chapters were enrolled and sent representatives to the meeting held at Northwestern University. It was decided at this session, to publish an official magazine, "The Gavel," which has since appeared quarterly and is sent free to all members. A chapter was founded at the University of Pittsburgh in 1920. Dr. Parrish and Mr. Murphy, who proved guiding lights to better speech on our campus, were recently honored by Delta Sigma Rho. They were presented with gavels as those members of the Alumni most deserving of honor in the furtherance of speech perfection. The Pitt Chapter has actively participated in the national conventions which are held every three years. St. Louis played host to the most recent assembly, at which Miss Theresa Kahn, Women's Debating Coach, acted as Pitt's representative. Matters con- cerning the financial status of the organization and recent trends in debating were dis- cussed. Miss Kahn was honored by election to a Vice-Presidency on the Executive Board. A number of Intercollegiate Debates were sponsored by the Pitt Chapter in 1934-35. Under the guidance of the National Group, two regional debates have been held on the Pitt Campus in recent years. Last Scholars' Day marked the tapping of Miss Ieannette Swartz, Mr. Robert McKee, Mr. Ben Siegel, and Mr. William Stark. x 1 N Dr Bowman with his characterzs y tw determination began efforts to -xbg F31 W .

From the Alpha Chapter, 1915, at the University of Kansas grew a strong national fraternity of thirty chapters scattered throughout the United States and Canada at schools having major courses in ceramics and petroleum engineering. A society that endeavors to strive for such commendable objects as Sigma Gamma Epsilon does is certain to be held in high esteem by all. The fraternity intends to further the social, as well as the scholastic and scientific advancement of its members. Extension of the relations of friendship and assistance between the universities and scientific schools with recognized standings in the United States and Canada are also stressed as objectives to be attained. On such a firm foundation was the upbuilding of a national college society made possible in the kindred sciences that Sigma Gamma Epsilon embraces. Four times each year thirty letters arrive at Columbia, Missouri, addressed to Professor W. A. Tarr who is the Grand Editor of the fraternity's magazine, the "Compass" The University of Pittsburgh is the home of the Beta Chapter. Dean Miller of the School of Engineering in 1921 interested a group of students in the idea of a fraternity similar to the one at the University of Kansas. Their application for a charter was honored and so the second link in the chain of brotherhood was forged. Although classed as an honorary fraternity, Beta as well as the majority of chapters, favor the classification of being professional in nature as well as in scope, although the constitution states clearly the high scholarship requirements necessary for admission to membership. The fact that Sigma Gamma Epsilon is the only society in geology, mining, metallurgy, ceramics, and petroleum engineering to recognize outstanding men in these departments makes membership highly desirable. On the second Tuesday in each school month the members of Sigma Gamma Epsilon gather to hear eminent speakers in engineering and geology from all parts of the country talk about the problems of the "mineral industries." In the spring when a young man's thoughts become slightly confused with thoughts other than rock formations, mining production problems, or well drilling, Sigma Gamma Epsilon steps quickly into the breach and holds a dance in an attempt to solve the problem.

Not only does it t iii: V commemorate the birth of our first President, but it heralds the inception of Sigma Tau, - 4 L--A ' FB' " thirty-three years young this Spring. It was just four years past the turn of the century, that an adventurous group of Nebraska students ignited the flame that was to carry the name of Sigma Tau blazing across the country. Establishing as their objectives, recognition of scholarship, promotion of an organi- zation for advancement of the engineering school, and good fellowship among their members, these modern pioneers laid the groundwork for the great national honorary fraternity which now embraces 22 chapters. Nationwide solidarity is strengthened by the quarterly publication "Pyramid" inaugurated in 1914 at the National Conclave. But enough of national history, when the University Psi Chapter presents such a progressive, vibrant picture of engineering life at Pitt. Established but six short years ago, it has bounded forward not only as a leader in its own sphere, but as an influential campus organization. It sired the Engineering Cabinet, composed of the six departments in the School of Engineering for the purpose of presenting a united front in University activities. Friendships, school spirit and professional pride have been fostered under the maternal guidance of Sigma Tau. Distinguished graduate engineers have been elected to honorary membership to acquaint them with the ideals and activities of Sigma Tau and to further engineering education through their interested cooperation. The yearly activities are as varied as they are interesting. Each semester a pre-initiation smoker is held to acquaint the lower classmen with the purposes of the fraternity, and to afford the exacting members an opportunity to scrutinize the prospective pledges. No V limitation is placed on the number of members at Pitt, and this year's enrollment included 'ET 55 active participants. LX After tapping, the pledges present an entertainment program at a meeting preceding V the banquet which celebrates the formal initiation ceremony. The annual dance is held T in Heinz House on Saint Patrick's Day, a fitting day for all engineers tc honor their patron saint. Last November President lohn Albright was rewarded with a trip to Stillwater, Oklahoma, to attend the National Conclave, and this year Sigma Tau presented Louis E. Reilly and John A. Beager with awards for superior scholarship attainment during their freshman year. The Psi Chapter plans a monument to be raised when campus building plans are settled, but the past accomplishments are a living memorial and tribute to the ideals of the fraternity.

WWW 'r 1 The national organization of Beta Gamma Sigma was founded on the eighteenth day of May, 1907, by A. L. Somers, a student at the University of Wisconsin. When a petition was filed with the Commerce faculty of Wisconsin, Professors Burchell, Gilman and Scott, the faculty authorized the formation of an honor society, known as Beta Gamma Sigma, which name was taken directly from the first letters of each of the three professors. To quote the national constitution, the purpose of Beta Gamma Sigma "shall be to encourage and reward scholarship . . . to promote the advancement of education in the science of business, to foster principles of honesty and integrity in business practice. . . . " In thirty years of organization, Beta Gamma Sigma has grown until at the present day there are 42 chapters in the schools of Business Administration of the leading Universities throughout the country. In 1933, Gamma Epsilon Pi, a national honorary women's Commerce Society was consolidated with Beta Gamma Sigma and the national Constitution of Beta Gamma Sigma was amended to include women among its member- ship as well as men. Active membership in each local chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma is restricted to the upper two percent of the lunior class registration and to the upper ten percent of the Senior class registration of each school which maintains a chapter. The national organization publishes the "Beta Gamma Sigma Exchange." The Beta chapter of Pennsylvania was installed at the University of Pittsburgh on May 3, 1920. In the last five years the local chapter has been officered by its faculty members. This plan is in pursuance of a request by the national organization in order to provide for a continuity of policy. The only exception is the office of Vice President to which an undergraduate is annually elected. The initiation ceremony includes a banquet followed by addresses by the new initiates. The local chapter sponsors the Freshman Scholarship Award given to the Freshman ranking highest in the School of Business Administration. The award was given last year to Charles R. Lynch.

Held PI TAU PHI Pi Tau Phi, College scholastic honorary, was organized in 1925 as an all-University organization. It continued in that capacity for several years, tapping eligible students at each Scholar's Day assembly. In 1932 Pi Tau Phi became exclusively a College honorary, because the other University schools had already established their own scholastic organizations. The membership policy of the fraternity is highly restrictive. To be eligible, the student must have at least a 2.2 average. Character and participation in student activities are also considered when the fraternity taps new members. In addition to the recognition of academic achievement, Pi Tau Phi sponsors a stimulating series of monthly meetings. At these gatherings, prominent scholars in various fields of knowledge speak, giving the members a broader viewpoint. This year at the Scholar's Day assembly, the following students were tapped into membership: Margaret E. Alston, Morton D. Bluestone, lohn D. Cochran, Marion S. Dithridge, Conrad A. Etzel, Israel Glick, Morris A. Goldstein, David M. Ienkins, Ir., Sixt F. Kapff, Sidney S. Kaufman, Kenneth Kneebone, Aloysius A. Kuenzig, Ioseph F. McCloskey, Robert K. Moorhead, Karl W.

CHI BHG NU 1 N NSXXX 'X-pw hlhllll A Medicine is a profession involving great responsibility, and only through intense interest in his work will the young medical student be able to assume the coveted title of "M.D." To sustain the first enthusiasm and interest of the pre-med and to acquaint him with the size of his responsibility were the aims of numerous small groups prior to 1922. For in 1923 was chartered the Chiron Club which had for its purpose the idea of welding the various small groups into a unified organization that could render a more useful service. In 1930 another change occurred when the name Ch Rho Nu was adopted and the group was recognized as an honorary fraternity by the University. Throughout fifteen years of organization the fraternity has endeavored to perpetuate an interest in the medical profession. Working under the leadership of Spence Liddell the fraternity has been engaged in various activities. On campus, weekly luncheon meetings have presented the members opportunities to hear distinguished speakers review extensively the various fields of medicine. Prominent physicians and professors have lectured at their meetings. Tours through Mayview and to clinics at the West Penn and Mercy Hospitals were high spots on the calendar and heavily attended. All the pre-meds feel that it is a distinct honor to be tapped to Chi Rho Nu. Freshmen leave the annual smoker inspired and determined to attain the necessary two point average for here they learn that the Chi Rho Nu purpose is, "to foster friendship among pre-medical students, to further the general welfare of the members and to stimulate an active interest in the medical profession." The twenty-six new members who were tapped at the Annual Scholar's Day Assembly were honored at an initiation banquet at Webster Hall this year. This year Chi Rho Nu members exerted great effort in order that their Spring dance would be as successful as those held in previous years. Chi Rho Nu is continually seeking to increase the satisfaction and high esteem with which the fraternity is regarded. OFFICERS President ...... .......... 1 .

Tau chapter has been outstanding for its marked accomplishments in developing and promoting interest in professional education among the men students in the School of Education at our university. Since its founding in 1922 the national organization has grown to include 42 active chapters at prominent universities and colleges throughout the nation. At Pitt the chapter has a planned and rounded program of activities. It holds regular monthly meetings for the purpose of promoting educational interest, better fellowship. social and civic leadership. A smoker is held each semester so that the actives may have an opportunity for observing the underclassmen away from the schoolroom atmosphere, At the first smoker George Wheeler, an active, told about his experiences in Berlin as a member of the United States Olympic Gym team. Frank Adams, president, was a dele- gate in November to the General Assembly of the fraternity at the Hotel Tutwieler in Birmingham, Alabama. Education students await eagerly the annual day of recognition, Scholars' Day, when Kappa Phi Kappa taps to membership men it deems worthy. Dinner meetings in March and April bring prominent men in secondary education to speak before the organization. The curtain falls on the year's activities when the annual spring dance in May is over, and the new officers have been ceremoniously inducted. The retiring members feel that Kappa Phi Kappa has definitely contributed to the University and to education in general. OFFICERS ..............FrankAdams Milton Brown . . . . . .Edwin G.

For it was at Washington State College in 1919, that a far-sighted group of foreign language students crystalized a desire for mutual cooperation and merited recognition in the form of a national fraternity. Hardly a year had rolled by, when, in the Fall of 1920, our own Beta Chapter was organized. Rapidly rising to a place of singular importance in fraternity affairs, national affiliation in lune, 1921, was a mere formality. The constitutional objectives, which have proved such an inspirational and cohesive force in Sigma Kappa Phi, include: the promotion of a high standard of scholarship among students in the Department of Foreign Languages and the creation of a spirit of unity and cooperation among students pursuing such courses. The words select and active typify Sigma Kappa Phi. Monthly dinner meetings in the Y.M.C.A. Club rooms are distinguished by the reading of papers and discussions, and climaxed by tasty meals prepared by the girl members. Scholastic requirements for membership are exceedingly high, both in the language major itself, and in all subjects in general. Only forty undergraduates or graduates are included each year, of whom not more than twenty percent may be faculty members. Scholar's Tap Day held annually every year, marks the introduction of new pledges, and the awarding of medals to the four Senior students having the highest average in the respective languages. The year's activities was featured this year as in the past by an open house carnival held in the Heinz House. All students in the foreign language department meet and present a varied program of entertainment including songs, readings, and appropriate plays. Those selected at Scholar's Day include: Betty Atwater, luanita Carpenter, Loraine Clatty, Mildred Corbin, Helen Couchenour, Anna Mae Dambroski, Mary Adele Ehren- field, Florence Ehrler, Hazel Ehrler, Sister Fleckenstein, Maurice Friedlander, Dorothy Greene, Germaine I. Guenin, Tillie Horowitz, Elsie Iacob, Noah lacobs, Dorothy Kerr, Dolly Kiedasch, Paul Kromer, Ray Maize, William Panetta, Marian Price, Ruth Raup, lackson Sigmon, Kathrine Smith. 189 The University has extended its ' scope, maintaining now Johnstown and Erie Extension Divisions. pw, y v Z 5 s ?nAi'Ax 2 2 Zim?

Who are they? Members of Quax, of course, honorary science fraternity for women. With the end of the Great War, women felt it necessary to know more about science and to increase the number of women in its various fields. Scientific interest was spread by the women who organized Quax in 1919 to create and maintain that same interest among science majors toward further research. Through a survey made in 1935 it was found that the inspiration received in 1918-19 from Dr. L. E. Griffin's weekly Biology Seminar by the founders, continues to be fulfilled. Quax, as an honorary, holds a unique place among the campus activity groups since its purpose is not only to recognize girls for their outstanding ability, but, also to foster this ability and help them find a niche in their chosen fields. In 1935, members of Quax found their aim for that year could be put to an excellent use, if they could gather together facts, which would definitely state the way to "win a place in the sun of oppor- tunity for social service." This was accomplished in "Quai: Query," a book presenting the requirements in many different fields of science for obtaining and holding a place in that sun. Through a recent survey of the Alumnae it was found that ten per cent have earned either M.A. or M.S. degrees and five percent have the degrees of M.D. This year's group has made numerous trips to points of scientific interest. Peering at the stars through the telescope at Allegheny Observatory, visiting remote corridors at the Carnegie Museum, and scientific testing in University laboratories has been the general program. On Scholars Day, Helen Bondra, F. Elizabeth Bower, lane Denny, Marian Dithridge, Verna Douglas, Elizabeth Fisher, Zelda Gutmacher, Lois Ioyce, Erma Kovalik, Clara Marshall, lane Millward, Electra Panagotacos, Virginia Ramsey, and Mary Theiss, were tapped to Quax. These fourteen tappees were pledged and initiated into the science honorary to pursue their interests in the field of their first choice. When the W.U.P. was formally dedicated in 1822, its faculty num- bered five professors. The U. of P. faculty now lists over 900 profes- sors, instructors, and special lec- turers. 183 1 as fl -1 1 fill On Mau 0 1936 the new Umverszfu ,f-V W ,C Lzbrmy qumtevs in the Cathedral ffm' vt 6 X Qi..

The purposes of this professional commerce fraternity have been to perpetuate an association among students primarily interested in some phase of commerce and to maintain for the benefit of such students a closer relationship that will better fit them for their chosen vocation. Gamma chapter of Kappa Alpha Phi was installed on the campus in 1924, evolving from a group of men who called themselves the Tunists. A high scholastic standard has been maintained by this group for over thirteen years. During the past semester this fraternity ranked second scholastically among all fraternities in the University. The activities of Kappa Alpha Phi are not confined to scholarship alone. Social functions play an important part,in the group activities and a gala formal held in the latter part of May concludes the year's events. Athletically, the fraternity ranks high in intramural sports. The fraternity's extra-curricular program includes a series of forums at which persons connected with the civic life of Pittsburgh are the guest speakers. They were Allan I. Fisher, instructor in accounting, ludge loseph A. Richardson, present presiding judge of Criminal Court, C. E. Puffer, instructor in commerce, Dr. Aaron Boer, instructor in commerce, Colonel Otto H.

DELTA DELTA LAMBDA ' On November 27, 1934, junior and senior students in the commercial department were petitioned for their opinions on organizing a commercial education fraternity. Over 40 students expressed a desire to have such an organization on the campus and pledged their support in the undertaking. The group decided that the fraternity would take for its name the Greek letters Delta Delta Lambda, the initials of its friend and teacher, D. D. Lessenberry, faculty adviser of the group. The purposes of the group were set forth and a constitution drawn up. On March 2, 1935, the University of Pittsburgh officially recognized Delta Delta Lambda. From this date the fraternity has gone ahead rapidly, and now is one of the most active honoraries on campus. The first affair of this school year was an initiation banquet held at Webster Hall in November. At this affair Dean Charles S. Tippetts, Dean Charles E. Prall, and Mr. Lessenberry spoke briefly. In April Delta Delta Lambda held its second social function of the year. This was an initiation ceremony and supper-dance at the William Penn Hotel. The activities of this honorary are not confined to social affairs, as business meetings are held twice a month. Those members recently initiated include: Blodwen Angus, Martin Cynkar, Elvina K.

This group of lovers of the best in literature was aided by the noted author lohn Frederick. Holding tenaciously to their fundamental principle of cultivating good writing among their members, writing endowed with sincerity, feeling, and sound artistic criticism, Quill Club managed to edit its first publication in 1928 under the title "Steps," It was sponsored by Haegl Rune of the American College Quill Club in collaboration with the Department of English. Honaca Delaney was editor of the two issues in 1928, with annual issues following in 1929, 1930, and 1931. After a lapse of a year and a half, the literary magazine reappeared on the campus under the present title, "Iourneyman," Again sponsored by Quill Club with Don Early as president, a magazine broader in scope made its appearance that year. Contributions were accepted from all students, not necessarily members of Quill. Under Maxine Hirsch in 1934 and George McGiffin in 1936 the club grew in size from 25 to 40 members. By that time the Iourneyman was being favorably accepted by both students and faculty and was adopted by the University as the official literary magazine. This year Bruno Pozzi assumed leadership as president of the more versatile Quill Club, which while no longer a member of the national organization, is nevertheless, a club of increasing importance. Kenneth Houp succeeded Mr. Pozzi as president, in Ianuary, in time to issue the annual call for manuscripts. The scope of the new edition of the Iourneyman was broadened to include creative sketches, criticisms, discussions of current problems, and book reviews. The form of the book was revised into a smaller size modeled after regular commercial publications. Tapping requirements include the submission of a manuscript for the magazine, which, if accepted by the members, merits initiation into the Club. Meetings are held every two weeks in 1309 Cathedral where class papers and theses written for the Club itself are read and discussed. An annual banquet is held in Iune to round out the year's activities. Those tapped at the last Scholar's Day tapping were: Bernice Goldman, Alice Benovitz, Mildred Akselrad, Dorothy M. Davis, Estelle Kovacs, Marion Conn, Leah Hankin, Gertrude Lieblich, Mary L. Nicholson, Rosalie Brennan, Mary Roche, Iohn Finnan, Ray Maize, I .

It further augments its roll by electing to membership National Members, these are historians of national or in- ternational renown. ' Phi Alpha Theta, National Honorary History Fraternity, was founded March 14, 1921, by Dr. N. Andrew N. Cleven at the University of Arkansas with the worthy purpose of rewarding meritorious achievement in the field of history and of stimulating an interest in historical information. There are seventeen chapters scattered throughout the United States. Beta Chapter at the University was founded on the first anniversary of the society by the original organizer, Dr. Cleven. The Phi Alpha Theta Chapter at Pitt has the dis- tinction of being the largest and most active in the fraternity. Beta's service to the field of history goes far beyond her monthly meetings and is not limited in service to the Uni- versity alone. Her members, for the most part, are History Department alumni who con- tinue their associations with the chapter and activities in the field of history. Many are teachers in the high schools in communities in or near the Pittsburgh district. Participa- tion, also, in the celebration of events of historical importance is an integral part of the program. The annual celebration of the founding of the fraternity is an event of significant importance. It is at this time the society invites prominent historians to address its mem- bers and to accept honorary membership. As the University celebrates its l5Oth anniversary, Beta of Phi Alpha Theta celebrates its 15th birthday. Although the chapter is only one-tenth as old as the school, it plays a major role in modern University life. In its quest for knowledge, sponsorship of fellow- ship, and preservation of scholastic ideals, Beta Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta keeps alive the greatest benefits of collegiate days. The library space on the fourth 187 floor is largely occupied by book- stacks having a capacity of ap- proximately 120,000 volumes. ,, llll I HHH L n ,PQ IWW W ff? t rf tw MIM S" "ZA ' 1' F -I .J " .v':4".x 'h- , ' 4 ish , ' ,fit is N 't L-pflglg we l t - txt I-I All ,' ii V7 Any!!-X.

Elsie Murphy At the outbreak of the World War, women declared their rights by organizing their first honorary fraternity at the University. In 1914, Dr. Will Grant Chambers, then Dean of the School of Education, aided fourteen enthusiastic young women in establishing Kappa Pi, a local professional fraternity. A few years later, Kappa Pi became Delta chapter, a charter member of the national education fraternity, Pi Lambda Theta. In May of last year, a large delegation from Delta chapter drove up to Penn State College to the home of Dr. and Mrs. Chambers to assist in the installation of Alpha Pi, most recently organized chapter of Pi Lambda Theta. Approximately one hundred teachers throughout the Pittsburgh district and nearby communities are members of Pi Lambda Theta and sixty of these actively participate in the social and cultural events of the honorary. Membership in the fraternity is based upon scholarship and character, and is open only to those students and graduates who have finished or are completing their practice teaching. During the summer, a tea for women in the School of Education was given to acquaint the undergraduates with members of Pi Lambda Theta. In the fall, a regional meeting was held at the Schenley Hotel and teachers from near and far gathered for the conclave. Luncheon at the College Club and a trip through the Cathedral was a part of the program planned for the out-of-town delegates. Modernistic, urban and rural, and industrial paintings were viewed at the International Art Exhibit. At the Founders Day banquet, Assistant Commissioner of Education and Pi Lambda Theta national president, Bess Goodykoontz, who was formerly a member of the University faculty, was the honored speaker. A round of business meetings and panel discussions completed the divisional conference. Continuing its get-acquainted policy, Pi Lambda Theta sponsored a dinner for junior women in the School of Education. Seventy-five young women looking forward to the teaching profession attended the dinner at which Dr. Camilla Anderson, prominent psychiatrist, spoke. From the gold Cathedrals mounted on the blue place cards to the xylophone solo of one of the members, the get-acquainted dinner was unique. "Understanding Other Women's Problems" was the subject for a panel discussion during which a doctor, a mother, a nurse at the Children's Hospital, and promotional director at a downtown department store discussed their vocational problems. Another topic for an entertaining panel discussion on the "Professional Attitudes for Women" was presented. The aim of the fraternity has been to maintain high standards of training in the teaching profession and to promote a spirit of fellowship among the women of that pro- fession. On Scholar's Day the following tappees were announced: Mary C. Fallon, Lois Follansbee, Alice Johnston, Dorothy F. Langguth, Gwendolyn H. Marshfield, Iune R. Phipps, and Thelma I.

PANHELLENIC COUNCIL Friendly rivals are these members of Panhellenic Council, representative upper- classmen from every women's fraternity on campus. How to rush, when to rush, whom to rush- -A-Panhel decides the answers to those questions. And as they say it shall be done, so is it done. Over a period of twenty-nine years, since the first women's fraternity was established on the campus, fraternalism has grown until today the women's groups hold the same distinction as men's fraternities. Traditionally Panhel members, dressed in formal attire, greeted the frosh at a recep- tion in their honor. Soft candlelight, fragrant flowers, and an open hearth set the scene for the newcomers, who met lean Lawson, Panhel prexy, Marion Messer, social chairmang Miss Thyrsa W. Amos, dean of womeng Miss Helen P. Rush and Miss Frances McLaughlin, assistant deans of women, in the receiving line. Rushing in mid-November gave the future pledglings something to talk about during the next few months. Corsages, friendly smiles, and tea parties featured Panhel's fall rush calendar. Along about December, vocal chords were being exercised by the sorors contending for the gold loving cup in the interfraternity sing. A swing orchestra, hill-billys, Holly- wood skits, and kindergartens added to the competition, but Zeta Tau Alpha rode the crest of the wave and added another cup to their overburdened mantlepiece. A Yuletide celebration at the Tri-Delt house provided gifts for the Council members with a grab-bag and all the trimmings. On Scholar's Day, Elizabeth Reiger and Rita Roegge who had a 2.5 scholastic average for four years were recipients of the Panhel award of silver plaques inscribed with the girls' names. Since women's fraternities at the University have a system of deferred rushing, the spring rushing season of three days is a round of break- fasts, formal banquets, minstrel shows, nite-clubs and what not. Smartly dressed rushees make their first appearance at the campus fraternity houses during the women's rush season. With spring and the usual April showers, fraternity women began to cast about in their minds for a llreally smooth" escort for the annual Panhel Ball at the Urban Room of the William Penn Hotel. Marion Messer, chairman of the Ball, led the grand march with her escort and the others fell in step to the usual Hail to Pitt chorus. Last year the Spring Festival float parade sponsored by the Council, had as its theme the nursery rhymes of childhood days. Mary, Mary Quite Contrary, lack Horner, and Old King Cole sat astride the borrowed trucks as the sorors vied for the trophy. Up Bayard and down Bigelow Boulevard rolled the line of trucks bearing their entries in the float parade, pausing before the judges' stand, and disbanding at the Cathedral entrance. From float parades to banquets turn the fraternity women to close the year's activities. With soft fraternity songs, mixed chatter of pledges and sorors, and the pastel gowns of the guests --fraternity life dims as the summer approaches. A new semester, new classes, new interests will bring another Panhellenic Council into existence and fine fraternity rela- tionships will be renewed.

ALPHA DELTA PI At Wesleyan Female College, first woman's college in the world, Alpha Delta Pi was founded in 1851 as the Adelphean Society. Many of the traditions and much of the W ritual of Alpha Delta Pi are the same today as in l85l. The pledge itself has come down almost unchanged for 83 years.

BETA SIGMA CMICBON At the seventeenth biennial convention of Beta Sigma Omicron in Kansas City in 1925, it was decided that the fraternity limit future expansion to Class A colleges and universities. This decision proved a wise one as the fraternity has grown steadily, having installed twenty-six chapters between 1926 and 1934.

"It" means the difficult, manifold task of controlling, restricting, and mothering the thirteen men's social fra- ternities on campus. Council has had that job since its inception in 1914. Barely surviving the hectic war years the reorganization in 1920 was only natural, and since that time Interfraternity Council has climbed steadily in prestige until today it is one of the strongest legislative and governing bodies at the University. Each of the thirteen fraternities has two representatives who answer roll call at the monthly council meetings. Mr. Robert R. Corley, Assistant to the Dean of Men, has not only acted as adviser to the Council this year, but has been a rejuvenating spirit as well. Social activities of I-F receive the most publicity around the campus. The social program was an ambitious but also a successful one. The Yuletide Festival Committee succeeded in securing the Schenley ballroom for the scene of the gala dance and Bill LeRoy's excellent orchestra supplied the music. One of the chief attractions was the Interfraternity Sing held in conjunction with the dance. The Delts had a large pill to swallow on a dry throat this year when the Pi K.A.'s won the Sing and also the privilege of the winner of singing on the radio broadcast during the dance. Another major social event on the I-F Calendar was the Interfraternity Ball. The whole campus was speechless when Chairman Ben Baskin mentioned casually, in one breath, too, the William Penn Ball Rooms and Glen Gray and his Casa Loma Orchestra playing from ten to two. All of the tickets for this affair were sold out long before the date for the dance-April 9 f-'tf - and the dance met the approval of all who managed to get there. The Kapp Sig's really showed the rest of the fraternities how it should and could be done when it came to passing the pigskin over the goal for six points, or arching a basket- ball through the air for goals, in the I-F sponsored tourneys. They seemed, too, to have a peculiar knack of batting a volley ball over the net and were long winded enough to win the Panther Run. Over at the S.A.M. house they cultivate the art of ball rolling to win bowling cups. The Phi Delts pulled a surprise to claim the indoor track cup for their mantle. I-F Council is trying its utmost to inaugurate as a permanent policy a well- rounded program of interfraternity sports events which will attract as many members as possible for active participation. A different, not so well known or appreciated, list of projects in which I-F Council is vitally interested, includes the following: an active association, the Alumni Faculty Advisory Association which was formed to develop better understanding and closer contacts between the alumni, faculty, and the fraternitiesp the new project of a system of resident advisers for the fraternities. The University gives free tuition for graduate study to resident advisers living in the houses in exchange for the work they do in guiding and directing the activities of their respective fraternities. The chapter does its part by fur- nishing room and board. Another innovation to be regarded as something of a triumph is the new election idea. This plan promises to eliminate the bickering and discord that has so disrupted the Council in the past. Five senior council members and two members of the Dean of Men's office meet and select the officers of the new Council. In recognition of the fact that I-F Council demands the maintenance of a certain scholastic average it awards an annual scholarship plaque. Realizing what conditions would be if unrestricted rushing prevailed, through the efforts of the Council, the fra- ternities have pledged themselves to a moderate sensible game of "crown the freshman" in which all houses will have fair and equal opportunities. The creation of rules for intra-fraternity social activities and conduct and an attempt to shoulder responsibility for the execution of these rules, round out the series of tasks that Interfraternity Council handles so well. The design for the Hungarian Room was the outcome of a lim- ited competition among Hungarian 706 architects, sponsored by the Hnn- 'J garian Ministry of Education. l !' 4 hl' nn-at! 11 A OFFICERS President ..................

KAPPA SIGMA From the first chapter which was established at the University of Virginia in 1869, Kappa Sigma, traditionally founded in 1400 at the University of Bologna, has flourished and prospered until it now includes 108 chapters scattered from coast to coast. In 1920, Sigma Kappa Pi, a local group, adopted the scarlet, green and white colors to become the Gamma Omega chapter.

Theta Chi now includes on its roster 50 chapters throughout the United States. In addition to the national publication, The Rattle of Theta Chi, the local chapter publishes its own magazine, The Alphabet. The merging of Sigma Epsilon in 1919 and Theta Delta Psi in 1934, resulted in the formation of Alpha Beta chapter of Theta Chi. The fraternity has for its colors military red and white. The purpose of Theta Chi is to create a tradition of good scholarship, to develop the moral, social, and cultural life of its members, and to cooperate with other fraternities in promoting the stability and general welfare of the American college fraternity system.

The earliest recorded game was played in 1869, when the "University Nine" defeated the Eckfords of East Liberty in a close game. The score was 21-20 and the game lasted only five innings. From their scores these first games give evidence of either amazing batting skill or woeful pitching. The "University Nine" was undefeated until 1870, when they lost by a score of 21-15 to a high school team in a seven inning game. Several years later came the beginning of intramural sports. The Sophomores defeated the Juniors by a ninth inning rally 16-14. The vengeful Iuniors, with more enthusiasm than wisdom, challenged the Seniors. The outcome was depressing to the Iuniors, who lost, 39-24. It took the Seniors only 7 innings to amass their 39 runs-an average of over 5 runs per inning! From this time until 1900 baseball was played intermittently at the University. Schedules were irregular, but games were played with most of the nearby college teams. Until 1924 University nines met with fair success. Interest, however, waned due to the lack of a proper ballfield, the strictness of eligibility rules, and the irregularity of the schedules. Football beginning in 1890, held the stage from that time on. The athletic scene today at Pitt is widely different. Varsity and intramural sports are maintained throughout the year. The Pitt Panther has become known throughout the country for his prowess. Year after year, under Dr. Sutherland, Pitt football teams rank with the best in the country. Pitt basketball teams led by Coach "Doo" Carlson, have turned in one successful season after another. Lately the Pitt track team, once almost utterly lacking student interest, has become a breeding place for champions, National and Olympic. 'l'he swimming team can always be depended upon to register a successful season. Other sports, of more recent inception, promise bright results. Boxing, wrestling, tennis, golf and rifle shooting are now well established and successful. Hockey has made a start at the University this year. Pitt men are well proud of Pitt teams. ,1 K QXXXV4 ! 4 BETTER to hunt in fields for health unbought Than fee the doctor for a nauseous dreught.

WETTACH JAMES HAGAN Director of Athletics Chairman of Athletic Council Graduate Manager of Athletics MEMBERS OF ATHLETIC COUNCIL C. D. Wettach, Chairman C. W. Ridinger L Steele Gow W. D. Harrison, Secretary Wm. P. Snyder, lr. Dr. H. E. Friesell l. C. Trees lohn Weber Alan M. Scaife Dr. W. S. McEllroy Each department of the University has its own particular group of faculty members. Blended together, this hetergeneous group is the Uni- versity staff. The faculty setup of the Department of Athletics is an integral part of the University staff. Corresponding to the position of Dean is the Director of Athletics. His assistant is titled the Graduate Manager of Athletics. Members of the faculty are the various athletic coaches. There are times when the professorial policy conflicts with the administrational way of doing things. Such was the occurrence this year in Pitt's athletic department. W. Don Harrison as Director of Athletics found his policies irrecon- cilable with those of Dr. Iohn B. Sutherland, varsity football coach. In deference to the nation's foremost gridiron mentor, Harrison submitted his resignation to the Athletic Council and it became effective at the completion of this school year. One of the major aims of a University is to develop its students into effective citizens and members of the professional community. When these students are sought by that community, the University is given a strong approval. This year Carnegie Tech selected alumnus 2 William Kern to be its football coach. Kern had been Dr. Sutherland's chief assistant for the past few years and when he went to Tech he asked alumnus Dr. Edward Baker, the Pitt backfield coach, to be his first assistant. Kern and Baker left the Pitt coaching staff at the end of this foot- ball year. Kern further augmented his staff with the addition of Pitt alumni Edward Skladany, All American end, and Frank Kutz. To fill his depleted staff of aides, Dr. Suther- land announced his appointments when spring football practice began in the beginning of April. Alec Fox, captain of the Pitt team of '27, was added as line coach. Fox had been assisting Harvey Harmon, another Pitt alumnus, in a similar capacity at the University of Pennsyl- vania. Edward Schultz, who had coached the Pitt ends while he was in law school in '32, '33, and '34 and who was the winner of the George Wharton Pepper award for exceptional scholar- ship, returned to alma mater again as end coach. Harold "Josh" Williams, a brilliant Pitt halfback in 1930, became backfield coach. He had been coaching at Beaver High School before accept- ing the new position. Charles Bowser, backfield coach, was promoted to the place of Sutherland's head assistant. THIS YEAR IN PITT ATHLETICS In 1937, as the University recollected one hundred and fifty years of its history, the entire nation re-echoed a tribute, "Hail to Pitt." The saga of the years seemed to swell into this chorus, for it was a tribute that was alive. It was alive because in the year of the sesquicentennial Pittsburgh glory soared across the athletic horizon with the brilliant intensity of the midday sun. Football, already advanced to the prime posi- tion in the collegiate athletic curriculum, was dominated by the greatness of Pitt's gridiron eleven. Triumphant in the gridiron's champion- ship reckoning test, the Rose Bowl game, Pitt received the distinction of national football supremacy. A season's record of seven victories, one tie, and one defeat earned the Eastern championship for the Panthers and in recogni- tion of this accomplishment, they became the first winners of the August V. Lambert trophy, awarded to the first team of the East as selected by a committee of prominent sportsmen and sportswriters. With an ideology centered around the Olympic games, the sportsman's directing force has been the Olympic ideal. This year, for the first time, Pitt achieved the ultimate in athletic endeavor. Through lohnny Woodruff, long-leg- ged freshman, who was the winner of the 800- meter run in the 12th Olympiad, came Pitt's first Olympic victory. Able basketball teams have been an annual Carlson production for as long as the Eastern Intercollegiate Basketball conference has exist- ed. This year, Pitt regained possession of the EIBC plaque, symbolic of Conference superiori- ty, for the fourth time in the five years of the Conference life. Pitt completed its season in a tie with Temple and the play-off in Philadelphia was a decisive Panther triumph. Captain Billy lesko received a first team position on the All- Conference team and its ensuing gold medal together with selections on every city and district all star team that was chosen. The year in boxing was one of the most suc- cessful since the sport was resumed at Pitt in 1930. Three victories in six starts, a spirited meet with Penn State, one of the best teams in the national competition, and a record of three out of four against Conference opposition was the record of the 1937 Panther ringmen. In the Conference standings, Pitt finished in a triple tie for first place. Ralph Dorand, fighting at 115 pounds, won the Conference championship in a meet at Philadelphia. Five victories and three defeats was the dual record of the Pitt swimming year. Swimming's highest splash was made after the dual season was completed. It was an impressive showing in the Eastern Intercollegiate Swimming Cham- pionships. Walter Nowotny, sophomore stroker, won the 100-yard free style, Tommy Locke took seconds in the 220 and 440 yard free styles and Captain Bill McQuillan won the diving title for the second time. Intramural athletics went through another popular year in which more than one thousand student participations were recorded. The Inter- fraternity competition dominated this sports picture. Kappa Sigma, Greek champions in touch football and basketball, was the outstand- ing team. After winning the basketball title in the fraternity competition, they were given a surprising setback in the finals of the Intramural play when a team of Chemical Engineers defeated them to become champion over the four leagues that played the floor game. Lambda Chi Alpha acquired a bowling trophy for the second year. This was the year in Pitt athletics. There was victory and there was defeat. From this view- point, it was a superlative year, for victory was abundant. But above all this, was a glorious Pitt spirit. This made 1937 a glorious year. X 1 Q .Ml THE ROSE BOWL TROPHY THE EASTERN INTERCOLLEGIATE 226 BASKETBALL CONFERENCE TROPHY PITT - - 21 WASHINGTON - - Thursday evening, December 3, the Varsity Letter Club held its annual banquet for the Pitt football squad. lust as the adjournment of the dinner was being considered, an Associated Press wire arrived. W. Don Harrison, Director of Athletics, read the message. The University of Washington, West Coast Champion, had selected the University of Pittsburgh, Champion of the East, to be its opponent in the 'fourgiament oi Roses gridiron classic to be held on lanuary , 19 7. Thus, for the first time in the history of the Rose Bowl game, an eastern team had received four invitations to this post season contest. Training was resumed immediately and preparations began for the invasion of Pasadena. Two weeks later, on Wednesday, December 16, as the Christmas recess began, thirty-four players, three coaches, student managers, and twenty-two alumni and friends, left Pennsyl- vania Station on a special train, consisting of four pullmans, two baggage cars, club and observation cars. With stops at Chicago, Kansas City, and Albuquerque, the entourage headed for San Bernardino, California, where training quarters were established. Reports that have returned from California indicate that all who met the members of the team were impressed by their earnestness, their appearance, and their behavior. The Pitt team that entered the huge, saucered Rose Bowl on New Year's Day was a Pitt team that knew that it had to win, knew that it wanted to win, and knew that it was going to win. Three previous defeats in this competition were given an added sting when Pacific Coast sports com- mentators became unanimous in their derision of the selection of the Panthers. 87,136 spectators, absolute capacity and the largest crowd ever to see a Rose Bowl game, were in the stands on that sunfull afternoon that was New Year's Day in Pasadena. Out of the locker room into this arena came thirty-four University of Pittsburgh students, filled with the fierce determination of youth. Three weeks of concentration on one desire, victory in the Rose Bowl, had built up a strong will to win. It reached its emotional heights in that Pasadena locker room. Dr. Sutherland couldn't give a pre-game talk. He was choked. He nodded to his assistant to say some- thing. Virile Bill Kern floodgated a tear. The Pitt team ran onto the field. They didn't stop that running all day. Bobby LaRue ran 26 yards through right tackle and Marshall Goldberg ran 19 yards around left end as the Panthers ran 56 yards up the field. Frank Patrick's plunging from the one foot line gave Pitt six points in the first quarter. Sophomore end Bill Daddio kicked the extra point. In the second quarter Washington's offensive became more effective. Two advances went as deep into the Panther end of the field as the 37 and 19 yard lines. They went no further. Bobby LaRue, completing three years of regular play with his best game, almost broke into touchdown land when he ran 44 yards to the Washington 30 yard line in the third period. From here Frank Patrick bowled over six more points. On five consecutive plays through the middle of the line, Frank powered his way to the final stripe. Daddio again converted. With a flurry of forward passes, Haines tossed the Huskies as far as the Pitt 29 yard mark in the final quarter. Daddio decided that that was far enough for any Husky to go and he stabbed one of Haines' laterals and raced seventy-one yards for the third touchdown. He made his total scoring of the day nine points by kicking the third extra point. For the remainder of the game Pitt kept pushing the ball towards the Washington goal line. On occasion the Panthers reached the one and five yard lines. The game ended. Score, Pitt 21, Washington O. Everyone who saw that game agreed that the Panther team that played in the Rose Bowl was the season's finest piece of gridiron mechanism. It was mechanism with a heart. Y-vu...

This term is con- notative of an exact, vigorous, unspectacular type of gridiron play. From this preciseness come touchdowns. With a team schooled rigidly in fundamentals, Pitt has been called a power outfit because it produced victory with a simple offense that depended upon a straight, line-buck, off-tackle strategy. Two years ago a slight variation was evident. Dr. Sutherland's "Highland Fling" was a colorful offensive diagram that opened up the Pitt play. This year the Pitt team turned on more power during the season than the Duquesne Light Company shut off during the St. Patrick's Day flood. And it was power of the dashing, scintillating, wide-open variety. The same thoroughness in rudimentary matters was present, but it was given a smack of the spectacular by the brilliance of a stable of great running backs. Marshall Goldberg, Iohnny Wood, and Harold Stebbins headlined the season with fast, skillful scoring jaunts as they gave added meaning to "Pitt power." SEPTEMBER 26, 1936--PITT 53, OHIO WESLEYAN O Indications of things to come predominated the touchdown account that the Panthers debited in their first game of the season played at the Stadium. Ohio Wesleyan couldn't dyke the Pitt scoring stream. Sophomore Goldberg, in his first varsity game, carried the ball up the field in an uninterrupted march for the first touchdown. He scored on an off-tackle slice from the three yard line. Still in the first quarter, Goldberg went through another tackle hole, this time doing a bit of Astaire stepping up the field for 76 yards and the second score. Go1dberg's classmate, Harold Stebbins of Williamsport, took up the banner of the class of '39 by duplicating his classmate's scoring antics. Stebbins scored at the end of a continuous 46-yard march and then did a solo up the field for another six-pointer after running 43 yards. Iohnny Wood wiggled down the field in a most elusive manner for 53 yards and another touchdown. Then he grabbed a 30-yard pass from Troglione to equal the point-making of his under- classmen. LaRue, Patrick, and Malarkey each contributed to the huge Panther total after overpowering drives. DR. IOHN B. SUTHERLAND 8 Varsity Coach 22 OCTOBER 3, 1936----PITT 34, WEST VIRGINIA O The Mountaineers came to the Stadium to play Pitt for the twenty-ninth time. The sun was still shining in full October glare, but the Panthers must have thought it was November. At least they were in mid-season form as they walloped West Virginia. Senior Leo Malarkey, with a name just made for puns, certainly did not make the Mountaineers laugh. After the boys from down in them thar' hills had left the Panthers scoreless in the first quarter, Malarkey helped himself to three touchdowns in the next two periods. One was the result of a spectator- raising 80-yard run. LaRue forwarded to Fabian Hoffman for IO yards, Hoffman ran 25 more, and the Panthers had another score. Tony Matisi, tackle, grabbing a ball out of the air after Pitt's Henry Adams stabbed for it, raced his bulky figure 37 yards for the other point- maker. Patrick and Daddio did the extra point kicking, each making two. OCTOBER 10, 1936--PITT 6, OHIO STATE O Since spring practice, the preceding April, Pitt knew that its first and, perhaps biggest, objective was the defeat of Ohio State. This game was the season's first great natural. Ohio State was reckoned to be the nation's best, even before the playing season got under way. And when, in its first game, the Buckeyes overwhelmed N.Y.U., 66-O, the odds against Pitt went up as fast as the stock market went down in '29. Ohio State's horse-shoe stadium was 71,714 spectators strong on the Saturday of the game in Columbus. Resorting to its dependable, old-fashioned style of play because of a wet field, Pitt smashed down the famed "razzle-dazzle" Buckeye offense and gained consistently itself. It couldn't score however. Then, as the stop-watch began to reach its last 60 mark, Pitt found itself with the ball on the Ohio 34-yard line. Sophomore Stebbins took the ball from center on a play called by Sophomore quarter- back Chickerneo, who obliterated the opposing end. With this bit of eliminating, and equally good blocking by the rest of the team, Stebbins scampered for the winning touchdown. Statistics showed a definite Pitt superiority. Without even using a forward or lateral pass, Pitt had ll first downs to Ohio's 5, rolled up 251 yards by rushing to Ohio's 77, and permitted the Buckeyes to enter Pitt territory only once. OCTOBER 17---PITT O, DUQUESNE 7 Built up to such a keen mental peak so early in the season was psychologically unhealthy for the Panthers. The following Saturday Duquesne came into the Stadium with no greater desire than to beat Pitt. They did it. George Matsik, a substitute halfback, Wangled out into the open and ran 73 yards for the touchdown. Misplays were devastating to the Panther recovery attempt. A fumble on the three yard line ruined Pitt's choicest scoring possibility. An intercepted pass erased all the good of a 75-yard steady drive. Unable to do anything on the slippery field, an apathetic Panther fell before an aroused Duke. First downs, nevertheless, were ll-3 in favor of the Panthers. 229 x dxf' -30? ROBERT LaRUE Halfback I fl AVERRIL DANIELL A11-American Tackle OCTOBER 24, 1936-PITT 26, NOTRE DAME O Nothing is as stimulating to a fighting team as unexpected defeat, nothing as strong as a desire for vindication. Nothing could stop the Panthers on this clear Autumn afternoon. Not even a good Notre Dame team. With the season's biggest Stadium fill, 70,244 spectators, watching, the Panthers rose to gridiron perfection. They outrushed, outcharged, outmaneu- vered, and outfought the Irish. They were invincible this after- noon. Beginning right, with the opening of the game, the Panthers marched 66 yards in 14 plays for a touchdown. Bill Stapulis banged his way over from the 7-yard line. Souchak converted. Stapulis passed from the Rambler 44-yard mark to Hoffman who ran over for the second score in the third quarter. Bob LaRue ran 39 yards in the final period to the Irish 13. Goldberg took the ball over soon after. As the game was closing Iohnny Wood intercepted a pass on the Notre Dame 45 yard line, cut across the field, sidestepped, took advantage of quickly formed inter- ference, and completed one of the season's best runs for the final touchdown. Statistics were just as smothering. 14 first downs for the Panthers to the Irish 4 and 310 to 58 in yardage gained reflect the ferociousness of a Panther at his snarlingest. OCTOBER 31, 1936-PITT O, FORDHAM O Fordham's "seven blocks of granite" would take nothing for granted. Not even the reputation of Pitt's slashing halfbacks. For the second successive year in their Polo Grounds battle, the Panther-Ram game ended without a score. Pitt came within 4 yards of the scoring proximity only to be repulsed by a fighting Fordham line. Two superlative lines played superlative football. , X WILLIAM GLASSFORD Guard ,P tif 1 ff w IOHN WOOD Halfback Iuly 8 1936 IOHN BAILEY WILLIAM BLAIR Varsity Football Manager ' Varsity Football Manager i WILLIAM HOUSEL 230 NOV. 7, 1936-PITT 34, PENN STATE 7 Pitt football teams reach their playing apex in November. Since Dr. Sutherland began to coach at Pitt, they have not been beaten during this month. At the Stadium on this Saturday that old November adage became reinforced. Before a homecoming crowd of 20,000, Pitt circuited its power on all volts. Goldberg passed 25 yards to Stebbins for touchdown number one in the first quarter. Patrick completed an 80-yard drive with a touchdown in the second quarter. State's score came in the same period on the age old "sleeper" pass, Wear to Harrison. In the final period Pitt ran wild. Stebbins plunged over from the three-yard line, Johnny Wood did his weekly piece of open field running, and Johnny Urban followed him up with a similar feat of 52 yards. NOVEMBER 14, 1936-PITT 19, NEBRASKA 6 Going up to Lincoln for the yearly meeting with the Cornhuskers, Pitt realized that it would have one of its most difficult encounters when it bumped into the Big Six champions. It was a fine team that Pitt played this Saturday, but Pitt was finer. After Francis and Cardwell collabor- ated for a touchdown, the Panthers were behind. lust as the half was about to end, in fact there were 30 seconds left, Greene passed to Urban for 30 yards, and then went over the center to even the score. Passes by Urban gave Pitt a scoring oppor- tunity in the third quarter. Urban made it good on an offtackle slice from the seven-yard line. An overnight fullback conversion, Greene bucked over his second touchdown to finish the scoring. CHARLES BOWSER Assistant Coach t ' 'Q . 1 1' . 1 y 'T' . XSS f.

Bill Daddio's toe was not numbed by the cold. He kicked a field goal from the 25- mark in the opening period and then proceeded to make four conversions go true. In the second period Goldberg raced 42 yards, for a score. Greene ran 53 yards before being tackled and Bobby LaRue followed up with a score from the 3-yard line on an off tackle slant. Matelan, Skibo halfback rounded end for 19 yards and a Tartan score. . A passing duo of Matelan to Kellar accounted for another Tech score in the opening of the second half. On the next kickoff, LaRue took the ball, met Goldberg coming up from the other side of the field, gave him the ball, and Biggie sprinted up the sidelines for 83 yards and a score.

Even though the win and loss facts do not represent the apex of achievement, the accom- plishments of Pitt's basketball Panthers during the season 1936-37 were among the most satisfying in University athletic history. Pitt, with a season's record of 14 victories and 7 defeats, attained the highest recognition in the two branches of its competition, the Eastern Inter- collegiate Basketball Conference title and the City of Pittsburgh championship. The first suc- cess accounted for Pitt's fourth triumph in the E.I.B.C. in the five years of Conference exist- ence. The city crown became Pitt's for the first time since the three local schools got together in round robin play. But, running through this season of victory and defeat, were intangible factors that regi- mented this year's Pitt basketball team into the pigeon hole of greatness. There was predomi- nant in the play of this team, which technically was hardly above the mediocre, elements that could do nothing but make the season a success. They were present consistently, and were never lacking when really needed. On these occa- sions, when the outcome of the contest was important, the magnificence of spirit, the sheer, sweet courage, and the will to win of Pitt's basketball Panthers burned so brightly that they couldn't be beaten. Competition was begun late in December with a Pullman trip to the Midwest. In Chicago, the Panthers inaugurated the season against North- western. The Wildcats, materially aided by more 2 experience and their home court, gave Pitt its soundest trouncing, 37-28. Still in the Windy City, the Panthers went over to DePaul the following evening and were beaten in an extra period affair, 41-37. Monday, December 14, Pitt traveled to Indianapolis from Chicago and suc- ceeded in gaining the season's first triumph, 32-21, over Butler, a perennial opponent. Then the Pitt basketball kite started sailing high. It all began to whirl when the Panthers came home and began to play their basketball on the Stadium court. First they pacified Wis- consin, 41-30, and then, in their first Conference game they knocked over an able Temple outfit, 32-28, in a closely scored game, but one in which Pitt maintained an even and substantial lead throughout the play. The first interruption in this home stand came when Pitt crossed the street car tracks to even out an old score with its scholastic neighbors on the other end of Panther Hollow. Carnegie Tech deprived Pitt of the Conference title for the first time the preceding year, and with this revenge motive uppermost, the Panthers outscored the Tartans, 30-26, to win their second Conference game. That great Pitt spirit soared to its highest keel in the following game at the Stadium. Notre Dame came to Pittsburgh with a record that showed four straight wins, with two All Ameri- can players in the starting line-up, and with a team that was reckoned to be well on its way toward the national championship. During the first half the boys from Notre Dame lived up to all the nice things that had been said about them. They started out by piling up an enormous lead over Dr. Carlson's boys, once it was 14-4, and when the half ended the scoreboard read 23 for Notre Dame and 14 for Pitt. But, the Panthers weren't through. They came back in the second half with a surge of spirit that completely played the great Notre Dame team off its basketball feet. Led by lumpin' Ioe Garcia, whose play was hotter than the Spanish Revolution, and who individually accounted for 14 points, Pitt hooped its way into the lead and the game ended in a Panther triumph, 34-31. After this lengthy stay at home, Carlson's cagers again hit the Pullman trail. Against the Navy, the Pitt floormen floated over their sixth victory wave, 35-28, and continued on to Washington. In the Capital City, the Blue and Gold basketeers' winning ways went beserk when Georgetown gave out Pitt's first league setback. While most students were cramming for first semester finals, Dr. Carlson's cage pupils had to pass one more basketball test before the first term ended. That they did with high marks by completely outclassing Penn State, 36-28, in a Stadium contest. The season's soundest adage was given addi- tional substantiation, when in between semes- ters, Pitt proved that to them, "there's no place like home," and they smothered West Virginia, 44-36. Westminster came to the Stadium next and found that this was more than true, losing a well played game, 32-29. Ballyhooed as the game of games, the annual Pitt-Duquesne Stadium get-together was more than that. It came out of the story books. The Pitt determination to win and the fighting Pitt spirit reached its top. Hopelessly outscored at the end of the first half, 15-30, the swashbuckling Panthers came into the second period imbued with the drive of a team that is riding along with the confidence of victory within its grasp. Swish- ing through points with incredible accuracy, Pitt tied the score 44-44 when the regulation time was completed. In the extra 5 minutes, Pitt was losing 49-50 with 15 seconds to go and Duquesne had the ball. loe Garcia stabbed for it, secured it in Duquesne territory, took two steps and two dribbles, and with his last measure of energy, let it fly high for the basket. It dropped on the bank board and swished through the net. Score, Pitt 51, Duquesne 50. Clinching the city championship, Pitt dropped Carnegie Tech in the next game, 43-37. Then, came the natural let-down from a strenuous list of games. Going into the Pullmans again, Pitt went to South Bend, was beaten by Notre Dame, 27-18, came back to Pittsburgh, was beaten by Duquesne, 30-31, went to Philadelphia, and was defeated by the Owls, 34-45. Returning to Pitts- burgh, the Carlsonmen found themselves more comfortable at home and trounced Georgetown, 39-22, reviving title hopes. A trip to Penn State proved the Panthers were still stale and the Lions triumphed, 24-21. When Temple lost to West Virginia, the Pitt title hopes became a reality again. Down to Morgantown went Carl- son and his crew and in one of their best floor exhibitions of the year, subdued the Mountain- eers, 48-42, to tie Temple for the Conference lead. A play-off in Philadelphia was neces- sitated, and proving that they were the team that could win "when they wanted to win" because they had the season's finest fighting heart, Pitt rolled past Temple, 35-29, to finish the season cum laude. ' 1 I E x N DH H CLIFFORD CARLSON PITT-DUKE ACTION WILLIAM IESKO Varsity Coach Califain 'WIC VARSITY TRACK FIRST ROW: Ullrey, Zolnoski, Thomas, Spitz, Clifton, Cook, Zamborski, Hoeveler, Baldwin SECOND ROW: Olson, Lasky, Bennett, Rauck, Tredennick, Routch, Taano, Cooper, Mason, Potts THIRD ROW: Bearzi, Tost, Radvansky, Oclen, Ryden, Casimir, Kopac, Zeleznick, Gongloff Since his arrival, five years ago, at the University, Coach Carl Olson has quickened the track pulse of the campus with his contagious enthusiasm for his particular sport and as a result, the caliber of Pitt track accomplishments have had an accompanying upward trend. A definite stamp of approval should be placed on the dual record of this year's Panther cross country squad. It was a good year. Any season that shows five victories and two defeats in a sport as uncertain as cross country is good in any coach's book of memoirs. More significant in the retrospection of the Panther hill and dale year than the figures in the record books is the personnel of the Pitt team. There were four stars who bulwarked the Panthers to this creditable showing. These four finished up among the leaders in every meet to insure the Panthers an impressive score. These four, seniors Harold Tost, Alex Leggin, George Cook, and jun- ior Albert Zamborski, are the finest tribute to 1937 Pitt track and field. Previous to their entry into Pitt, not one of them had done any real com- petitive running what- soever, let alone the strenuous pace of cross country. With their CARL OLSON consistent scoring this year, they are now ranked among the district's best long distance runners. First meet of the year was at Bethany College, West Virginia. In this meet Pitt scored a shutout victory, winning 15-40. Finishing in first place were Cook, Leggin, and Zamborski, with hands locked in a triple tie. Second meet was at the home course, the Schenley Park valleys and hills, against Wayne University of Detroit. Wayne was beaten in the same manner, with the redoubtable trio of Zamborski, Leggin, and Cook holding hands in their first place finish. Michigan State came next Saturday with an unblemished record and the national cham- pionship underneath their running shoes. They left with the same. Beating Pitt, 19-36, they went on later in the season to capture their third straight national championship in the IC4A meet at New York. Kenneth Waite, who later won the national individual title was first in the time of 23 minutes, 26 seconds. In the meet against Carnegie Tech three weeks later, Harold Tost beat that mark by a couple of husky strides. He nego- tiated the four and a half mile course in a time of 21 minutes, 23 seconds, the best time made over the difficult Schenley Park course during the year. Tech was beaten, 18-37, in this meet. In between the Tech and Michigan State contests, the Panthers motored out to Indianapolis to trounce Butler, 25-30. I AMES POTTS Varsity Coach 234 Assistant Track Coach Highlight of the dual season was the Penn State meet. Pitt hadn't beaten State in 21 years of interschool cross country competition. State had only lost one meet in three years. This year Pitt came through with a 25-30 victory. Harold Tost fin- ished second behind Olexy, State's great runner, and Cook, Zamborski, Leggin, and Iohnny Woodruff ended up among the first ten to account for that triumph. An "off" day in New York resulted in a ninth place for the Panthers in the IC4A meet at Van Cortlandt Park. The season was ended at Annapolis where the service team wiggled in ahead of Pitt over the Navy course, 26-29. In addition to the four stalwarts who were so prominent in the records, there are a few more names that may be added to the cross country roster of 1936. Iohnny Woodruff and Frank Bonarotti were always way up there when the points were tabulated. They were the stars of last year's undefeated freshman team. Bob Follette, Ray Nordstrom, and lim Follette were the other letter winners. When the wintery chill made Schenley Park a rather uncom- fortable place to prance around in only jersey and shorts, Olson led his trackmen up on the hill behind the Stadium to the Indoor Track House. On this banked, cinder track the team practiced through late November until early April. Entered in the Millrose Games, the New York Athletic Club games and the Central Intercollegiate Conference Championships, Pitt's best showing was made by Iohnny Woodruff. The big sophomore, in his first year of varsity competition, won the half mile in the N.Y.A.C. and C.I.C. games. A wooden track hindered him in the Millrose 600. Only dual meet of the season was held at the Yost Field House, Ann Arbor, against the Big Ten champions, Michigan. All around strength was Michigan's winning factor. Woodruff won two first places, in the half mile and in the 440- yard dash in which he set a new Field House record. Four varsity and three freshmen records were established in the annual Indoor Championships at the Pitt Track House. Ken Ryden's time of 6.5 seconds for the 50-yard high hurdles, Iohnny Woodruff's 2.00.3 minutes for the 880, and Pete Bennett's jump of 6 feet, 2 inches set new varsity marks. Iohn Bazyk's heave of 50 feet, 8 inches I OHN WOODRUFF bettered the old shot put mark while Clarence Lewis' broad jump of 22 feet, 5 inches was the other new freshman record. In their only meet of the indoor year the fresh- men overwhelmed a group of picked high school All-Stars, 79-35. When April brought spring weather Pitt spikes began to flash on the outdoor cinder tracks again. Sprinter Dick Mason prepared to defent his IC4A 100 and 200-meter dash cham- pionships in the annual meet late in Iune at Randall's Island. Eddie Spitz, senior veteran, kept Mason's fast pace keen with close competi- tion. Gene Taano, Penn relay javelin champion, became Pitt's outstanding star in the field events. Temple was beaten in the first dual meet of the year at the Stadium, 72-63. Harold Tost, ace distance man, set a new 2 mile record a time of 9:58.2 and Kenny Ryden bettered the hurdle mark with his time of 15 seconds flat in the low timber event. Iohnny Woodruff won 5 three firsts, the 440, the 880, and the mile races. George Clifton cleared 12 feet 6 inches to cap- ture the pole vault. These trackmen, together with hurdlers Glenn Cooper and Andy Lasky, dashman Art Thomas, distance runners Alex Leggin and George Cook, and high jumper Pete Bennett led Pitt through the spring of an exceptional track year. A freshman in the college, Iohnny Woodruff was scarcely known in Pitt athletic circles until the summer of 1936, Olympic year. Interschol- astic mile champion when he left high school, Woodruff ran cross country in the autumn of his first year at Pitt and the 440-yard dash during the indoor session. This Carl Olson did to strengthen his wind and to increase his speed. The result in Iune was the world's fastest half miler. Woodruff placed first in the semi-final trials in Boston and first in the final Olympic try-outs at Randall's Island, New York, early in luly. In Berlin, Woodruff became the Olympic 800 meter champion. . VARSITY SWIMMING FIRST ROW: Slobodian, Brown, McQuillan, Morris, H. Lederstein SECOND ROW: Heuple, Richman, Stiranka, Nowatny, Keck, Lalor THIRD ROW: Smullin, Forsythe, Beacon, Locke, Anderson, M. Lederstein, Dill, Corr, Lindberg With almost the same team, and almost the same schedule, the 1937 edition of Coach Pat Corr's swimming team finished the season with almost the same record as they had done the year before. Five victories and three defeats were the results of the team's efforts. Slippery Rock, Temple, Penn State, Delaware, and Ohio Wesleyan fell before the swimming Panthers. But Army, Western Reserve, and Franklin and Mar- shall were too strong. Red McQuillan, captain of the team, ended the season in a blaze of glory by rewinning his diving championship, and lead- ing his cohorts into third place in the team championship at the Eastern Intercollegiate Swimming Association meet at Lancaster. Another stalwart performer, Walt Nowatny, took first place in the IOO yard free style. Tom Locke was barely nosed out in the 200 and 440 yard races. He rarely lost a point in these races all season. Chief weakness of this year's team lay in the fact that, although they had plenty of ability to capture firsts, few points could be garnered from the second and third places. This was probably due to the weakness inherited from the year before, the squad being too small. Bill Brown, Tom Anderson and Bernie Lelake, Iimmy Lavine, Al Brown, Art Stiranka, Bill Keck, and Bill Richmond were also steady performers in solo and relay events. Besides their regular schedule, the freshman team often entertained during the intermissions of the varsity contests. Hym and Milt Lederstein and Al Beacon not only offered a relay team that cut eight seconds off the time made by the varsity in the same race, but also provided a bit of warbling. Bill Dill was really the answer to a coach's prayer as Pat Corr has been looking for a freshman diver for a long time. With these men coming up, the Panthers should have the full squad next year that they need. 236 Pitt Pitt Pitt .....

Defeating Bucknell, Washing- tion and Iefferson, and Temple put the ringmen into a first place tie with the Mountaineers. But, in what has become a seasonal event, the Morgantowners knocked the Panther pugs out of the championship. Extra-conference bouts were not so fortunate for the Panthers. Schricker's men lost their first two ring series to Catholic U. and to Penn State. But both of these teams were filled with experi- enced men and ranked among the country's best. Newest light on the Pitt ring horizon was sophomore Ralph Caruso. He was outstanding all year, and it was news when Car- uso failed to come through. Captain Cleon Linderman, in his last season, exhibited his usual steady fighting. He was the experi- enced backbone of the team. Ray Bombe and Homer Livingston were the regular point garnerers in the 115 and 125 pound class. Livingston has the best record of any 150 pounder in the Uni- versity's history. Bombe knocked the conference champion in the West Virginia fight. Both were seniors. Mike Ianuzzi and Herb Cummings handled the 145 lb. division competently. Emil Halley did the "heavy" fighting. Lack of experience was his only drawback. Ralph Dorand, in the 115 lb. class out punched the Uni- versity's only championship in the Eastern Intercollegiate Boxing Championships. Caruso and George Lupinacci, in the heavy- weight division, garnered the only other Pitt points when they lasted till the semi-finals. The combined points however, allowed them to tie their arch-rivals the Mountaineers, for third place in team points. FIRST ROW: Culbertson, Wargo, Dorand, Caruso, Lynch, Stronko, Bombe, Wescott SECOND ROW: Shricker, Livingston, Laub, Linderman, Ashman, Lupinacci, Corace, Pennybaker, Curzi, Davies 237 FIRST ROW: Livingston, Bedillion, Tomarelli, Kosinski SECOND ROW: Slade, Yocos, Rooney, Richards, Herron RIFLE TEAM With the finest team in the University's history, the rifle team definitely established itself among the top-notch outfits of the country. A record that includes a tie with Carnegie Tech and Cornell for first place in the Allegheny Intercollegiate League, a second place in the national rifle tournament conducted by a news- paper chain, and a tie with the University of Cali- fornia for fourth place in the shoulder-to- shoulder matches run off at Annapolis definitely places the riflemen in the upper brackets. University records as well as national ones were broken by the team. Outstanding was Captain Poellot, who shooting in his last season, led the team to its high place in the Inter- collegiate standings, and established an indi- vidual University record. Other outstanding men on Captain Mitchell's team were Diefendorf, Hoffman, Sage, and Mantozoros. WRESTLING For the second time in as many seasons the Pitt Panther has nothing to show for his wrestling efforts but mat burns and the satisfaction that comes from trying. In other words Coach Edward Mazeski and his troupe of matmen ran out their '35-'36 string of matches without a victory. The grapplers lost dual meets to Franklin and Marshal 35-O, West Virginia 21-13, Penn State 34-O, Temple 28-6, and Waynesburg 21-9. Penn State's whitewash isn't as snowy white asfit's painted. The Panthers gave the State boys all they wanted and more. Rudy Tomarelli and Captain Neible succumbed in bitter overtime bouts and other matches were lost in close battles. The Inter-State Wrestling Tournament held in Waynesburg provided background for the Panther's biggest moments on the mats last season. Roofner and Kosinski, a late comer on the squad, fought their way into the finals in the 145 and 155 pound class respectively. Both lost however to a pair of Case grunt and groaners. Russ Bedillion got as far as the semi-finals but forfeited. FIRST ROW: Hoffman, Mantzoros, Sage, Poellot, Eichler, Ranclazzo. SECOND ROW: Mitchell, Cartwright, Dietendorf, lennings, Oncha, Courtwright, Gunter 23 WOMEN 'S ATHLETICS ,. .1 ,. AUDREY GRAHAM Coeds at the University are offered the op- portunity to engage in practically every type of sport from hockey to ping-pong. Freshmen wom- en are required to take a course in Physical Edu- cation through which they learn to play the various sports. The athletic activities of the upperclassmen are sponsored by the Women's Athletic Association, an organization which is open to every woman and which allows her to take part in all tournaments and games. Among the less strenuous sports, archery holds top place in the coeds' favor, since the steady hand and good bearing necessary to hit the "bulls eye" are also helpful in acquiring poise. During warm weather, the whiz and thud of arrows can be heard as these modern Robin Hoods practice on the green lawn across from the Tree's Gymnasium. Audrey Graham who is president of W.A.A. is quite skilled in this sport, and is one of archery's most loyal followers. Badminton, one of the more recent sports, also has its fans. Tennis devotees find this sport an excellent substitute for keeping in trim during the winter months. It is played in much the same way as tennis except that a feathered object, called a "bird" is used instead of a ball. Par- ticularly adept at this game are Virginia Boyd, vice-president of W.A.A. and Mary Lou Dowling. For the more athletically inclined girl, hockey and basketball are the ideal sports. Special play-days are held at the different colleges in Pittsburgh and nearby towns at which girls who wish to take part in intramural tournaments may play these games. Betty Cox, chairman of sports for the year, has charge of these tournaments for 23 which a regular program is made up at the be- ginning of each year. A series of play days were held in the fall with hockey as one of the prin- ciple games. Recreational sports such as ping-pong and dancing are a boon to those girls who are inter- ested in taking some part in athletic activities, but whose health does not permit the more en- ergetic ones. Special classes in aesthetic and tap dancing are given under the direction of Miss Elizabeth Rearick, assistant professor of Physical Education. Every girl should be able to swim by the time she graduates from the University. The swim- ming pool is open at special times to W.A.A. members, and a swimming club, the Pitt Fins, was organized this year under the direction of Eleanor Fedigan. Golfing and horse back riding claim their enthusiasts too, and although the University does not own a riding stable, one has been contacted to which classes go at certain times each week. Instruction in different golf strokes is given in the gym, and one may try his skill in the cellar of the Oil and Gas Building where there is the necessary equipment. One of the most important of the conventions held this year was the Athletic Conclave at Slippery Rock. It was attended by the Athletic Federation of College Women of the Western Pennsylvania District. Marion Lee Patterson, Secretary of W.A.A. and Miss Boyd represented the students of the University. MARY LOU DOWLING INTRAMURAL ATHLETICS Intramural athletics, under the guidance of Martin I. Feely completed its fourth year as a recognized, organized program of the Univer- sity. Still more or less in its infancy, the Intra- mural structure commands the participation of approximately 1500 students. The primary pur- pose of any Intramural program is to provide athletic competition for all students. With this goal in view, Feely, has contrived an itinerary that embraces every branch of the University and affords an opportunity for fraternity as well as independent students to take part. Fraternity competition has become stronger and keener than ever before and has needed no additional stimulus. Because of this, more atten- tion was given this year to groups such as the Medical School, the Dental School, the Engineer- ing school, and other organized Independents. Leagues were drawn up for these groups in touch football, basketball, volleyball, tennis, bowling, table tennis, track, wrestling, and mushball. Impetus was given to the program at the be- ginning of the year when the Athletic Council approved Martin Feely's idea of rewarding In- tramural accomplishment. Devising a point system whereby competition, and victory be- came the basis, an Intramural sports letter was awarded at the end of this year. This letter, comparable to the Varsity P, proved a popular move. Autumn interest was maintained by a fast moving touch football circuit. All in all, twenty- three teams were entered in the four leagues: the Interfraternity, Independent, Medical, and Dental leagues. Games were started early in October but bad weather prolonged the sched- ule and the final game was held up until early December. Kappa Sigma, featuring the brilliant play of Charley Groat, won its second successive championship in this play by trouncing Phi Gamma Delta in the deciding contest. , ' ' I Volleyball followed touch football on the list of activities and it was a strictly fraternity affair. Not having to contend with the weather, the Greeks ran the tournament off in a little under two weeks. Kappa Sigma won its second trophy of the year by defeating Sigma Alpha Mu, in the final game. One of the most popular sports in the Inter- fraternity set-up is bowling. The Center-Neville Alleys were crowded with fraternity men for four weeks while the various chapters vied for the bowling trophy. Divided into two leagues, the competition was very even and closely con- tested. Lambda Chi won the title in League A with a margin of about three games. It was even closer in League B with Sigma Alpha Mu rolling out ahead of Pi Lambda Phi in the last match to win. In the finals, for the fraternity crown, Lambda Chi Alpha rolled out too many strikes for the Sammies and won the championship after being runner-up in the preceding year. Basketball proved to be the most populated game. Two fraternity leagues, a Medical league, a Dental league, an Independent league, and an Engineering league rounded out a strenuous program. Close to 260 performed for the 26 teams entered. Becoming the outstanding fra- ternity athletic team of the year, Kappa Sigma, League A champions, defeated Theta Chi, victors in League B, to acquire the Greek floor crown for the third straight year. In playing for the general Intramural title, the Kappa Sigs lost their first game in competition, when they were beaten by the Chemical Engineers. Champion Irv Solow successfully defended his University table tennis championship for the third year. Mushball leagues and a tennis tour- nament in the spring completed the Intramural activity. 01" A W,U,P, BASEBALL TEAM OF THE 1890's "CENTER RUSHING" AS IT WAS PRACTICED IN 1892 40 E u 1 f - ' an 'T' 'W rr him as I X . 2 f " J A Q Q V9 4' 1' Q, i".f"f VN 'V we ' Kr F J 7 Tim Mi, A '-' N A X 5-wg I KH X - 7 Li' ., n x..i6'-17-'15, 4 u I X I j I 1 X N .- 1. 5 J xy x FEATUR ES The First Class Dance -The Junior Prom of 1901 HE first class dance in the history ofthe University was the Iunior Prom of 1901, held on W.U.P.'s campus in Old Allegheny. A young chemistry student named Alex Silverman, Class of 1902-now Head of the Chemistry Department-led the Grand March with Miss Blanche May. There were only six girls in the Iunior Class then, and most of the men were unable to dance, yet the Prom was an outstanding success. The leading caterer of the city, George P. Luther, was engaged, and the room was made bright by a system of arc lights arranged by the engineering students who drew the power, since there was no general electric-lighting in those days, from street lines. No swain thought of inviting his lady without sending a bouquet of roses. Fashion like- wise was not ignored: the women showed an unaccountable bias for decollette gowns with leg o'mutton sleeves, and the men came dressed in the finest rented swallow-tails. Couples were whisked to and from the dance in carriages hired from local livery stables. The Junior Prom of 1901 was the forerunner of the extensive program of social activity at Pitt today. Each class now holds an elaborate annual dance at which the nation's finest dance orchestras play. Every year the combined fraternities hold an Intertraternity Ball and an Interfraternity Sing, and annually the combined sororities hold a Panhellenic Ball. The Military Department pre- sents the Military Ball and the women of the University fittingly celebrate Va1entine's Day with a Heart Hop. Occasionally throughout the year campus organizations hold dances. The onset of Spring brings the gayest days of all- the Spring Festival Week, a week of jovial campus activity in which a float parade and a "sweepstakes" are traditional features. The week is fittingly climaxed by the Spring Festival Dance. Each year honors are presented to outstanding students. The aspiration ot every Pitt woman is to be selected as Senior Queen. This honor is bestowed annually upon the Senior woman who best epitomizes, infthe eyes offher class- mates, the idealism, the solidarity of character, the academic and extra-cur- ricular attainment, and the beauty that all Pitt women come to cherish. An award also is given yearly to the Senior man rating highest on the basis of scholarship, activities, leadership, personality, and service to the University. Both recipients, together with other Seniors who have contributed greatly to University lite, take their places in the Hall ot Fame. Features such as are enjoyed today enrich campus lite, they add zest and sparkle and diversity: and, above all, they serve to keep the pursuit of knowledge a lively pursuit, and not a hum-drum dog trot. gf t i ON with the dance!

The first crisp days of fall, always so beautiful on the campus, saw an increase by six and one-half per cent of the enrollment over that of the preceding year. In the Iohnstown and Erie divisions registration had increased eight per cent. The Graduate, Eve- ning, and Saturday Schools had a three per cent increase. Enrollment in undergraduate schools went up four per cent. Faces were brighter and the gloom of recent years was disappearing. Altogether, the first autumn days promised a good year. Work had begun on the great Commons Room of the Cathedral. Two mills had been working throughout the year, preparing 4,500 tons of Indiana limestone for the room. Sixty laborers and twenty stone setters began the work of setting the limestone. Meanwhile, after a flurry of preliminary skirmishes, the football team gave 80,000 fans in Columbus, Ohio, a real thrill as Ohio State went nobly down, 6 to O. The largest group of fans ever to follow the Panthers, traveled to Columbus to witness their victory. Campus in- terest soared to a new high. A cheering section of eight hundred rehearsed students was organ- ized by S.F.A., with Louis Bearer as the guiding light. But in the first day of operation the section had little cause to cheer, for Duquesne came down from the hill and trounced an impotent Panther team, 7 to 0. Members of the University faculty took promi- nent parts in the joint meetings of the Pennsyl- vania State Education Association and the Western Pennsylvania Education Conference held on October 16. Dr. Chester A. Buckner, Professor of Professional Education at the Uni- versity, was made Permanent Chairman of the Western Pennsylvania Education Conference. Several days later Dr. Walter A. Lunden, Assistant Professor of Sociology, published his book, uluvenile Delinquency." This was the first of several important books written by members of the Faculty. In March, Dr. Samuel H. Williams, Professor of Zoology and Associate 1. u J OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY STADIUM I 4 1936-1937 Director of the University Lake Laboratory, published a 704 page text, "The Living World." His book is the first comprehensive work in its field, encompassing the entire subject of nature study. The School of Mines received an increase in its endowment fund in October. George M. Bevier, class of 1913 and internationally known oil geologist, of Houston, Texas, added 515,000 to the fund, which had previously amounted to Sl0,000, and will be increased until it reaches Sl00,000. Early in November Walter Hampden gave selections from Hamlet at a general student assembly in Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall. The veteran Shakespearean actor was well received, and his renditions of the soliloquy and the closet scene were especially well done. One week later the Annual Community Fund drive began on the campus. By the twenty-third of November the goal, Sll,00O, was achieved. As has been the custom in recent years, the fund combined all the organizations which, during the year, receive contributions from Pitt, the pro- ceeds then being divided among the constituent charities. On the twentieth of the month Chan- cellor Bowman held his Annual Reception for the parents of freshman students. Here, with the issuance of the six week's grades, parents received the first indication of the scholastic status of their children. Parents met with their sons' and daughters' instructors, talked with them, and established a more complete under- standing of the University. On December third the University of Wash- ington invited Pitt to play in the Rose Bowl. The wrath of the nation's sports writers poured down on the heads of the Washington authorities who gave the bid to Pitt in what was considered by the critics as the ubonehead bid." ln less than a month the sports writers were throwing bouquets by the columnful at the Panthers. The Pitt ava- lanche rolled over the Washington Huskies 21 to 0. This unexpected result tunexpected on the part of the Alumni Association of the University of Washingtonl necessitated the paying off of an unusual wager on the outcome of the game. The Washington Alumni had wagered a 50 pound king salmon, in edible condition, against 500 Pittsburgh stogies: so on lanuary 28, a magnifi- cent salmon arrived at the City-County Airport. In a gesture of appreciation for the good sports- manship displayed by the Washingtonians, the General Alumni Association of Pitt sent them 500 stogies specially packed in a wooden replica of the Cathedral of Learning. The publicity attendant upon these "pay-offs" was only a rumble compared with the demonstrations and ovations which greeted the members of the victorious team on their return to Pittsburgh. They arrived lanuary seventh at the Union Station and were met by 10,000 overjoyed stu- dents and fans. The Rose Bowl trophy took its place next to the Lambert trophy, symbolic of the mythical Eastern Football Championship, which had been awarded to the team at a special student assembly. Chancellor Bowman, Mayor Cornelius D. Scully, and Henry A. and Vincent L. Lambert, donors of the trophy, were the speakers. The University and Pittsburgh suffered a great loss on December the eleventh. On that day Dr. Samuel Black Linhart, Secretary of the Uni- versity for thirty years, died after a short siege of pneumonia. At the time of his death he was Secretary Emeritus of the University. Born in Irwin, Pennsylvania, Dr. Linhart was ordained to the Presbyterian Ministry in 1894. udllf THE SALMON ARRIVES-The reception THE STOGIES DEPART-tlett to rightl THE STOGIES ARRIVE-flett to rightl committee consists of Maxine Christensen Registrar l.

Iohn Woodruff, sophomore runner, was named to the All American track team for the 800 meters. Last August Woodruff, an unknown, gangling, negro boy, dashed away to the 800 meter Olympic championship at the Olympic games held in Germany. Running in a flashing, unorthodox style, Woodruff spurted from behind, after being twice "pocketed," to finish ahead of Europe's greatest runners. Several changes in administration occurred during the year. Robert C. Corley replaced N. Robert Seidle as Assistant Dean of Men in November. Mr. Seidle was appointed head of the Placement Bureau. The football coaching staff was riddled by losses when Bill Kern and Eddie Baker, line coach and backfield coach respectively, were appointed to the Tech staff, Kern as head coach, Baker as his assistant. In Ianuary Dr. Brynjolf Iakob Hovde, Associate Professor of History, was appointed Director of Pittsburgh's Department of Public Welfare. Ad- verse comment came from several quarters at Dr. Hovde's appointment, principally because he was one of the sponsors of a Spanish assembly in the city. A thorough liberal, Dr. Hovde ex- plained that in the interests of free speech he would have been a sponsor of a Spanish rebel assembly. His offer to withdraw was declined, for public sentiment veered in his favor. Lee M. Lockhart, Director of instrumental activities since 1935, left the University to become education advisor at the Witmark Music Publishing Com- pany of New York. The basketball team brought two more trophies to the trophy room. The team won the City Basketball Championship, an honor denied it for several years. On March 22 the cagers defeated Temple in a play off game to win the Eastern Intercollegiate Conference Champion- ship for the fourth time. THE FIRST CLASS WINDOW PANEL Scoring a scoop with a really new idea which it is hoped will develop into a tradition, the graduates of 1936 are placing the first class window in the library. The above figure is representative of the type of design and medallion which will be used in the class windows. Although the design will be conspicuously placed on regular windows, its size and coloring will be such that it will not obstruct the natural lighting of the rooms. 4 Right: Norman MacLeod fBus. Ad.

Lett: I. B. Uockl Sutherland. Lett: P. V. McParland lDent. 'O4J, President of the General Alumni As- sociation, extends greetings to 40,- 000 Pitt men and women throughout the world. The program was broad- cast on the Blue Network of the National Broadcasting Company. 1936-1937 February twenty-fifth marked the 150th anni- versary of the founding of the University. On that day 1500 alumni held a banquet in celebra- tion at Hotel Schenley. Harry W. Colmery, National Commander of the American Legion and a Pitt Alumnus, delivered the main address. Mayor Scully, Chancellor Bowman, "lock" Sutherland, David Lawrence, Mrs. Agnes Star- rett, and Dr. P. V. McParland spoke. Part of the program was broadcast to the nation over a coast to coast hookup. In the morning Dr. Dun- can Spaeth, President of the University of Kansas City, spoke at the Scholar's Day As- sembly held in Memorial Hall. On February twenty-third the State granted the University an appropriation of Sl,300,000. With the appropriation came the culmination of a two year altercation between Governor George H. Earle and Chancellor lohn G. Bow- man, a controversy that had concerned itself with the number of trustees to be elected by the W. DON HARRISON s 4 9 . ., p . ' -Gy T HHH ' xmas 4 I DR. IOHN B. SUTHERLAND Alumni. An agreement was effected whereby the alumni would elect one-half of the Trustees, amounting to fifteen in number. In addition, Governor Earle, Mayor Scully, and Chancellor Bowman will be ex-officio members of the Board. This year's compromise added thirteen members elected by the alumni to the two members elected to the Board last year. Another feud was settled this year. The ex- tended rift between Dr. John Sutherland, Head Football Coach, and W. Don Harrison, Director of Athletics, flared into the open in March, when Dr. Sutherland proposed to resign in order to relieve internal dissenison. But student and alumni sentiment were strong in the Doctor's favor, and as a result, Mr. Harrison resigned on the twentieth. Dr. Sutherland assumed the duties both of Head Coach and Director of Football. The year of 1937 has been a year of continued progress at Pitt. It has been the 150th year of growth. The Cathedral, towering into the Pitts- burgh sky, is closer to completion, and each step toward finality brings Pittsburgh closer to the attainment of ideals that have been cherished for 150 years.

From time immemorial, men and women have honored each other by words of tribute or symbols of achievement. Wreaths of olive leaves encircled the heads of Greek victorsg rich jewels orna- mented the crowns and sceptors of European rulersg golden trophies and titles have been awarded to champions of nations. lust as the green leaves wither, the brilliance of the jewels dims, the gold loses its lustre, and the titles be- come empty, so does fame depart. But the re Q- corded word lives to be read and reread. Through the years the words inscribed on the pages of this l937 Owl Hall of Fame will laud the record of service rendered the University by these twenty men and women. t Q - I I I f I I I 0 4 'W' To be selected as Senior Queen by the women of the grad- uating class is the greatest honor which can be bestowed upon a University woman.

The cosmopolitan makeup of our locality is one of the primary reasons for interest in the cultures and institu- tions of other countries. Therefore, it has been deemed fitting that these rooms at the Uni- versity be decorated and furnished to depict the cultural heritage of old world countries whose sons and daughters are now a part of the Pittsburgh populace. For the past decade Mrs. Ruth Crawford Mitchell, adviser on Nationality Rooms in the Cathedral, has directed the activities of the committees for the various rooms. The first com- mittee, the Italian, was organized in 1927, the fifteenth, the Swedish, in 1934. Through the years the fifteen committees have sponsored various functions to raise funds for their re- spective rooms. In addition some of the foreign governments have cooperated both by giving monetary contributions and the services of famous architects. OF THE OF LEARNING E ff' "1Zflffi.""'

In the Hungarian classroom, students will find themselves seated in chairs of royal blue leather with tablet arms inscribed with Magyar motifs. The walls are to be covered with finely-grained white oak veneer, and will contrast effectively with the color of the furnish- ings and the gayety of the ceiling, which is to contain a series of asbestos squares painted with brilliantly colored ornamentations. Contrasting with the characteristic peasant art of several of the other rooms is the design for the Greek Seminar. Exact proportions, symmetry of ar- rangement, and columns suggest a classical Greek temple. With its Ionic columns and marble floor, the Greek Room will be reminiscent of the rooms in which Plato and Socrates taught. Mr. Frank A. Linder, a graduate of the Berlin Gewerbe Academie, is the architect for the German Room, the largest of the Nationality Rooms. It will be equipped with every type of modern classroom equipment. The interior of the Monastery at Horoz, known as "the place of the owls" is the basis for the design of the Roumanian Room. A stone doorway, a stone fireplace, carvings on the chimney moulding, and dark oak paneling on the side walls, will be the distinctive details of the room.

The English Room will be either the Wren- Queen Anne type or a room of the Tudor type. The weaving craft of the Lithuanian women will be represented in the hand-woven wall covering in the Lithuanian room, ingeniously mounted so that it can be taken down and washed. Murals are to be painted on either side of the black- board. The furniture in the Polish Room is similar to that used in Wawel Castle in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. An exact rep- lica of the famous globe used by Copernicus, in the latter century will symbolize the Polish contributions to science and higher learning. The design for the Italian Room is in the spirit of the Renaissance. Supplementary seats will line a platform along three sides of the room giving it the appearance of a fifteenth century choir stall, and the blackboard is to be con- cealed behind carved walnut-paneling which will look like a vestment closet. Several paint- ings will add color to the room. ANCHOR SANITARY COMPANY 213-215 WATER STREET THRU TO 212-214 FIRST AVENUE PITTSBURGH, PA.

The rich lore of Scotland will be adapted to decora- tions for the room by the committee of which Dr. Iohn Bain Sutherland is chairman. As in the most outstanding buildings of Yugoslavia, the Yugoslav Room will contain beautifully carved wooden chairs and a wooden ceiling and wains- coating of Slavonian oak carved with geometric figures and the old Slavonic heart motif. The wooden ceiling and wall panels of the Swedish Room are based on the interior of a Swedish house of the eighteenth century, which is still standing, and which is said to be the purest example of Swedish architectural design in existence. Also unmistakably Swedish are the hooded chimney of the fireplace, the open hearth, and the bench which will run entirely around the room. Through the years, the committees of the fifteen nationality rooms have worked unceas- ingly and their plans are about to be realized. Statesmen, architects, and painters of renown have endeavored to contribute in some degree to the perfection of these rooms. Not only will the students of the University enjoy the beauty of the Nationality Rooms, but all of Western Pennsylvania will be given the opportunity to admire the richness of these rooms.

BOOTHBY Vice-President N THR JULY, 1902, issue of THE ENGRAVIQR AND ELEC- TRO'I'YfPl'CR a two-page article announced the formation of a new organization. The message be-gan with the statement, "The ljhoto-engraving Hrm of great promise is that of the Jahn and Ollier lingraving Co." This prophecy was a truism, borne out with the passing of the years. each one of which recorded an orderly and steady growth. More skilled men were developed within the organization, newer machines and cameras replaced equipment as fast as they became obsolete, and on five occasions it became necessary to find larger quarters until at present the firm occupies its own modern hre-proof building. Parallel with this unceasing expansion there came an ever-widening clientele, whose increasing patronage eventually placed the Jahn 8: Ollier lingraving Co. in the position of unquestioned leadership. For many years we have been the largest School Animal engravers in America, and in the commercial held we serve a distinguished group of the most progressive national advertisers. To us, this measure of success calls for no laurel wreath. Rather, we accept it as a solemn responsibility, realizing fully that the pacemaker not only sets the standards of quality and service for the industry, but must sustain them by his accomplishments. Ours is a simple formula: Ambition, honesty and integrity, constant hard work, keeping abreast of improvements, building a loyal capable organization, and treating our customers as fairly as we expect them to treat us. All these factors have become welded into a fixed policy, and it will remain constant-unalterable-as the years continue their phantom march.
