These pages are a pictorial and written account of life at the
University Of Pittsburgh in 1943-44, of its student body and faculty
affected by total war.
The days of five civilian men to every girl are gone. Gone,
too, are all-male Cap and Gown shows; saucy Pitt Panthers; jammed
elevator rides to high-altitude classes; big-time student politics;
Spring Festival float parades; formals and big-name bands. In
their place are first and ground floor classes; hikes to State, Thaw,
and Alumni Halls; professors With heavy civilian and military
schedules; Air Corps and AST4s; Pitt News and Owl OfEces sharing
Locker Room 3; smells of chow; busy barber shops; forty eyes
turned left and an accompanying ttlirr-ruffh; and soldiers in single
file walking off hgigsh along Heinz Chapel Walk.
But to us Who remain campus life is a lot more. It is a spirit
of determiniation to keep alive the ideals of the University: friendly
iireside chats, informal conferences With professors, hours of brows-
ing in the libraries or listening to symphonies in the music room,
and participation in University activities. It is also a spirit of
determination to prepare ourselves mentally and physically to
fight for the treasured rights to freedom and happiness.
As you page through this book, casually 0r carefully, you Will
find us firm, determined, proud, and eager. We are Pitteat war.

"The Pitt Owl differs from other owls. The old bird seems 1ther to have grown extra
wise, wise in patience and goodwill. He has better manners than common owls. He is good
to have around?
tiTHI'I OWL is a student record of life at the
University;of fun, the joy to be alive, and the
high seriousness of moving toward significant ma-
turity. It is the meaning the University has,
individually, for each student-a meaning Which is
in beautiful buildings, the grass and trees of the
campus, the Character of those about you, teachers
and fellow students, and the things you do day after
day. It is your growing in skill to be a doctor 01'
a business man or an artist or a good citizen, and
your capacity for thinking clearly about material
things and the non material. It is a record of your
growing toward integrity and kindness, toward
worthy doing and quiet wisdom.
ttLet me congratulate you upon the recording of
JOHN G. Bo WMAN.
The Vice Chancellor
DR. RUFUS H. FITZGERALD
Soft-spoken, sincere, and conscientious, Vice-
Chancellor Fitzgerald is among the busiest
administration oHicers in the University. So
few students realize how much Dr. Fitzgerald
does. As head of the Board of Deans, he is
now working out plans for war training here at
Pitt. He regulates new teaching devices, plans
for scholarships to worthy students in his
policy of equal opportunity for education,
supervises recreation and housing of students,
acquires new staH members and computes the
relative accomplishments of departments.
Above all, Dr. Fitzgeralds chief concern is the
student. To him come the undergraduate
leaders with their problems in publications,
activities and organizations. Now he is taking
out out-moded courses and installing up-to-the-
minute ones, and has already mapped out a
post-war program for returning veterans.
Dr. Fitzgeraldis job of keeping the work and
activities of the University rolling ahead is a
big one and only he could do it.
DR. JOHN WEBER
Probably the person who is most familiar with
Pitt, both from the students viewpoint and the
facultyis, is Dr. John Weber, secretary of the
University. A Pitt graduate, Dr. Weber has
been a member of the faculty since 1910 when
he accepted an instructorls position. Since
then, he has advanced to professor, head of the
engineering department, and then to his present
position as secretary. As supervising engineer,
When Pitt was being enlarged, he helped erect
the Cathedral of Learning. He traveled over
Europe at that time to select the seventy foot
high windows that have made Heinz Chapel
world famous. Dr. Weber numbers among the
few people who can say not only that he is a
part of Pitt, but also that he helped to make
Pitt what it is today.

The purpose of the General Alumni Association is
iito promote the welfare and interests of the University
of Pittsburgh and its Alumni, to foster Close cooperation
between the Alumni and the University, and to support
and advance the cause of higher education?
The organization is composed of members of ten
constituent associations. These ten organizations are
Alumnae, Applied Social Sciences, Business Administra-
tion, College, Dentistry, Education and Graduate, Engineer-
ing and Mines, Law, Medical, and Pharmacy Alumni
Alumni Council is the governing body of the Associa-
tion and is composed of officers of the General Alumni
Association, three representatives from each constituent
association, two past presidents and two representatives of Pitt clubs.
R. L. DIERKER,
Because of the war, most of the activities of the General Alumni Associa-
tion were curtailed this year. Since it was difficult to meet in person, it
was made possible for alumni to convey their thoughts through printed
words. Copies of ttThe Alumni Reviewii, edited by Ruth Lee Dierker, who
assembled news of activities of the University, were sent to various schools
and to members in Civil and military life.
Instead of the annual Homecoming Smoker, this year a Homecoming
Rally and Luncheon was held in November at the Hotel Schenley. Then in
December, the Second Annual Childrenis Christmas party was given in the
Commons Room. The idea originated with the party given to entertain
children of the faculty and alumni in the service. Other events of the year
included a Dinner Bridge and a Charter Day Program.
DR. J. H. LAWSON, 2nd V. President CHARLES F. BECK, JR., Treasurer
Charter Day, February 27, was commemorated with a special Vesper
service held in Heinz Chapel. The service was planned to pay tribute to alumni
in the service of our armed forces. Pitt alumni, s 'attered now to the remotest
parts of the earth, are proud of the progress our school has made since its
beginning as a log schoolhouse of yesterday to the ever-growing University
we have now.

In contrast to those many closed doors on the first floor marked tthIilitary Personnelii,
the wide, bright entrances to the Dean of Womenis Office mean iWVelcomeiK
Pitt this year is a school of marching feet, khaki, chow in lines, and air corps insignia,
a university where women are in the minority. Ping-pong game room, reception room, and
lounges went the way of the army when the womenis floor was taken over by the military
department last year.
But :1, staff, not easily daunted, made their new lo cation 0n the first floor, tthome" t0 the
Pitt women. So we girls have a place to take our problems; helpful advisors to give us assistance,
and worthwhile advice to be gained.
In addition to NIiss Rushis staff of assistants, NIiss Harriet Glasser, hirs. NIarjorie Todd
Simonds, NIiss Elizabeth L. Teal, lVIiss Jane Colteryahn, Mrs. Elizabeth Foster Schoyer, and
lVIiss lVIurelle Russell. lVIiss Adrienne Hill is a new Dearfs assmtant this year.

friendliness, interest, and helpfulness in any way pOSSIble.

Although the amount of space occupied by the offices of the Dean of hIen has diminished,
there is still the friendly pat on the back, the. personal conferences, and the tthelpful handh
that Dean Theodore Biddle and his staff personify.
Gone are the eighth floor lounges, the ments Tuck Shop, the vast offices of the Publica-
tIOIIS. The Dean of Blelfs office, too, has been moved to the firsl floor, but with no lessonng

To honor seniors, outstanding in their four years
of college life for honesty. leadership, good character,
and hard work, the OXVL HALL OF FARIE was
created about twenty years ago. Every year since
that precedent, an authoritative committee composed
of faculty members and junior men and women have
considered many students and selected those in whom
these qualities werc'best exemplified.
At Tap Day on BIay 5, the names of the following
twcnty-four men and women chosen by the com-
mittee were revealed. Each has given service to
the University far in excess of the average demand
for time and cooperation. Each has established a
record that may well be aimed at by underclassmen.

Because of his unassuming and friendly ways, Dr.
Stanton C. Crawford is a favorite among the students-
As director of the activities of the largest under-
graduate body in the University, he has a particular
interest in the problems of education, and the careers
of young people.
Dr. Crawford has seen that there are 110 disruptive
changes in the wartime curriculum of the College-
His interests reach into the classics, local history,
biological research, and detective stories. His pro-
fessions varied from teacher and zoologist to Dean
of the College.
Dean Crawford believes that young people should
be well trained in carrying out their careers. He
believes too that the Humanities course can help
students who intend to take professional training by
working in creative work. In this way, Dr. Crawford
is directing their efforts toward important wartime
and post-xvar aims. His hope is that these young men
and women will play an important part in these

Playing an important part in the curriculum of the
University and in training our teachers of tomorrow
is the School of Education headed by Dean S. P.
Franklin. It has been a difficult y Aar for both students
and faculty due to the changes that have and are
taking place in order to keep pace with the needs of
the day. Though for the most part the department
has continued along offering the same courses, it has
added one new course . . . pre-aeronauties, which has
proven itself extremely helpful to those boys who plan
to enter the Air Corps.
Dean 'Franklin. who is a firm believer in the
American education ideals, has been :1 great help to
these men and women who have pledged themselves
to the teaching of others.

train engineers to serve this district, according
to Elmer A. Holbrook, dean for seventeen years.
The school is divided into seven departments:
Aeronautical. Chemical, Civil, Electrical.
General, Industrial and Mechanical. In i11-
dustrial engineering!the men and women, for
there are women-turn toward chemical and
electrical projects. At the beginning of the
war, 2m infiux of embryo engineers registered at
the school, but at the present time, the enroll-
ment is 011 :1 downward slope. Under the
quota system set up at XVashington, only a
limited number of students may be accepted
each year. The expedited program now calls
for four semesters a year . . . holidays are one
day affairs . . . the students never know in
the morning what their status will be at night
. . . and so they work 011 to prepare to recon-
struct normal living in the post-war world.

SCHO0L 0F DENTISTRY
The School of Dentistry has become an even
more integral part of the University. The
Dental students . . . now in army and navy
garb . . . serve as an important part of the
social service demanded in any community
though many of them now have to leave the
University to serve in the armed forces.
Through his extensive research and his personal
effort, Dr. H. Edmund Friesell, Dean of the
school, has achieved national recognition for
the excellence of the Universityts dental school.
Due to his tireless work of continually build-
ing up the dental library, it is acknowledged
to possess one of the greatest collections of rare
and early volumes in the field of dentistry.

One of our brightest stars on the athletic
field is Clair 1VIalarkey, better know to students
and faculty as Tay. Basketball is his game,
and he not only played three years of varsity
ball, but also coached the Dent School basket-
ball team. In true ttRinkey-Dinkii manner,
Tay never played any one position permanently,
but switched on every game if need be.
Last fall, Tay went out for football for the
first time. He showed up as one of the teams
best passing bets, until he was hurt in the
Great Lakes game 011 October 2. As a result
of his knee injury, Tay spent about two and
a half months in St. Francis Hospital. He was
forced to drop out of school-and, of course,
he was missed on the basketball squad.
A senior in Dental School, Tzly was class
president for four years. He was treasurer of
TAY MALARKEY Dental Student Council his sophomore year,
and Vice president his junior year. He is a
pledge to Psi Omega, dental professional
fraternity. After the war, Tay is planning to
set up offices with his brother, also a dentist.

DENTAL I. F. COUNCIL
360 ................... Robert Gale
Dental Interfi'uternity Council might meet in odd
places, yet its purpose is an established one. Two
representatives from each of the three dental fratern-
ities make up the. council, and part Of their job is to
regulate rushing" for membership. Each rushee, to
be eligible to Alpha Omega, Psi Omega, 01' Delta
Sigma Delta must have a passing average, one
semester in dental school, and be approved by the
dean of the, school.
Officers of the council are rotated to give each house
a turn at the presidency every three years. This
year's council whirled out with a dance and later hit
Pitt sportlines hard with their basketball showings.
Among the fraternities, the Friesell cup is the big
stake and this year's playoffs will decide which house
is to keep it permanently.

Not many organizations at Pitt 1m boast that
ninety per cent of their alumni are serving Uncle Sam
actively, but Alpha Omega is one that can! In spite
of vartime changes, the AOts held their annual
formal dinner-dance at the Hotel XVebster Hull last
September, when forty people dined and danced.
Their house at 3515 Forbes Street is often the scene
of clinics which are given by various members of the
faculty and alumni from Dental School. There are
about twenty-fivc boys living in the house and the
present membership of the fraternity totals seventy,
with most of the fellows in school wearing the uniforms
of the Army 01' Navy. The A03 are active in Dental
School sports, and they now hold two of three legs
which are necessary to win the H. E. Friesell Athletic

Thirty six members of Delta Sighm Delta, pro-
fessional dental fraternity meet twice a month in
their chapter house at 24d Darragh Street under their
colors of turquoise and garnet. Sigma chapter at
Pitt shares the same fraternal secrets as their brothers
in England, France, and Australia d0. Their aim is
Wt0 keep high the standards of dentistry byinculcating
the minds of dental students and practicioners a
spirit of fraternal co-operation toward scientific,
ethical, and profession progress."
The fraternity publication, Desmos, uses up the
spare time of the boys when they are not tackling
inter-fraternity dental athletics 01' parties at the
chapter house. Chapter deputy is Dr. DeWitt Hall

The 23 Psi 0,8 living at their house at 230 North
Bellcfield Avenue have been very busy these days as
all of the boys are either in the Army 01' the Navy.
Their faithful housemother must satisfy the hunger
calls of a full dining room three times a day. Frequent
house dances do their best to fill in the temporary
gaps made by the curtailment of formal affairs. And
for more rugged sports, the service Unit 3307 Basket-
ball tlum uses three Psi Omega men. The Psi 0's
competing with the Alpha Omega boys, need but 0110
more leg to win the H. E. Friesell Cup. Dean Friesell
and Dr. XV. F. Swanson are two of the big boys who
were former Psi Onmgas and are now on the school

Pfc. talks to Pfc. while Pfc. sits in chair and
"The old order changeth; yielding place to the

some army, some navy, the boys spend part of their
time taring for the medi 1L1 needs of the military
stationed at Pitt. All courses have been accelerated,
vacations have been shortened, classes, textbooks
have taken on a new significance . . . all this is new.
But itBill" is still here. "Billii is Dr. XVilliam S.
iVIcEllroy, dean of the school and a former Pitt man
himself , . . because of Dr. hlcEllmy's Sincere interest
in the individual problems of the individual students,
the mods turn to him for guidance. From assistant
instructor to dean, Dr. DIcEllroy has risen within the
department. He works on the staffs of Blagee
Hospital, the Childrelfs Hospital, the Presbyterian
Hospital, and the St. F'ancis Hospital. All his
spare Oi time is spent in research . . . studies of
blood pigment, protein and iron, and ancmics.

Medical School Faculty
No school can rise above the least man on its faculty! XVith
that basic concept, the University can be proud of the School
of Bledicine, for the men who serve on the inedi 111 staff are
the best available in their respective fields. Headed by Dr.
William S. NICEllroy, himself a graduate of the University,
the staff spent last your training students under war-time
conditions. Dr. BlcEllroy, since his graduation in 1916,
worked at the University as instructor, professor, and assistant
dean of the school of medicine, and has always been the friend
of student and professor.
Year by year, the school has grown in physical equipment
and in student body. The old Mellon Institute has became
the home of freshmen and sophomores . . . the new Presby-
terian Hospital, the psychiatry hospital add dignity and strength
to the medical campus.
Today most of the students are in uniform . . . some army,
some navy. Courses have been expedited . . .
trimesters take the place of long summer vacu-
tions A serious note is introduced, for staff
and students alike realize the national need for
doctors. Colonel Albert Smith Dabney is
back . . . he invented a new field ambulance,
picked up a decoration, and headed home to
Pittsburgh's R.0.T.C. It x rats he who organized
the first R.O.T.C. medical unit here in 1921.
Basically, the essentials are the same. Dr.
Charles Ziegler and Dr. James Heard are still
inspiring their students. The medi 'le stuff now
serves the nation as well as the University.

professional medical fraternity. Nu Sigma Nu was

was fourty-four years ago and now the fraternity
has grown to be the largest in the world. Nu Sigma
Nu came to Pittsburgh when the University was the
Western University of Pennsylvania . . . that was
in 1895, and Nu Sigma Nu was the first national
fraternity on campus. Today they boast over five
hundred alumni. The brothers emphasize scholar-
ship, fellowship and character . .- . the fellowship
is taken care of at the monthly meetings at the
University Club where the brothers meet to eat,
drink and listen . . . especially to listen to one of
their distinquished alumni speak to them. And twice
a year, Nu Sigma Nu forgets the academic side
of fraternity life and entertains at dinner dances.

OnceIaImonth Magee Hospital is invaded by fifty-
odd Phi Betas who come there to meet. For dinners,
they choose the University Club or Webster Hall . . .
that is, if it isntt picnieking weather. Alpha chapter
at Pitt pledges freshmen but usually delays initiation
until their sophomore year.
Some professors admit a student can learn more
in a bull session than in several lectures . . . at that
rate, Phi Betas are on the beam. Every meeting of
this national social fraternity turns into an informal
social gathering Where the gang has movies or guest
speakers. Dr. Karl Mennenger, a leading psychia-
trist and alumnus of Phi Beta Pi, was one outstanding
guest. He is the head of the Mennenger Psychiatric
Clinic in Kansas.

SCHO0L 0F NURSING
Dean Ruth Perkins Kuehn hasnit found her
position as head of the School of Nursing en-
t dangered because of the war. Greater than
i ever is the demand for nurses and as the cry
went out for more and more, enrollment pf
pre-nursing students showed an upx'ard swing.
Making available all its resources to aid the
school in their program, the University has
adjusted itself to help train the hundreds of
women needed in this var effort. BIany 0f the
girls in the School of Nursing already have
enlisted in the Nurses Cadet Corp. At Magee
Hall, where the girls receive their final training,
war has meant hard work to the already am-
bitious group. Duty 0n the floor has more than
adequately supplemented classroom work.
XVith the various trust funds increasing daily
i that make possible the granting of scholarships
to young women who wmt to enter this field,
the School of Nursing has gained a permanent
prominence in the University life.

SCHO0L 0F PHARMACY
Under the guidance of their Dean, Dr. C.
Leonard O'Connell, the School of Pharmacy has
rounded up another year of accomplishments.
A leader in many outstanding pharmaceutical
organizations and a former president of Pennsyl-
vania Pharmaceutical Association, Dr.
OiConnell, through his own unselfish service to
the community and his intense devotion to his
chosen profession inspires the men under him.
Realizing the example put before them by their
dean, and their importance to the general war
effort, the pharmaceutical students have really
clamped down with increased studying. T0 in-
crease their knowledge by actual practice, many
of the boys work as assistants to pharmacists in
various drug stores throughout the community.
In spite of the accelerated program and the
tikhakii, rules the students of the school have
surpassed their records of former years.

founded on October 14, 1913 in Massachusetts. The
Delta chapter came to Pittsburgh on April 18, 1918.
Not only do the women of Lambda Kappa Sigma
work to better fit themselves into their profession,
but they occasionally let down their hair and pro-
ceed to socialize. An annual dinner for the alumni
is given by the sorority at the College Club . . . and
the mistletoe season finds an open party being held
for all the girls in pharmacy school. In the winter
itts dinners, the theatre and dances . . . in July
picnics and hikes take over. Lambda Kappa Sigma
becomes another signal of the place that women are
taking in the sciences and in the professional world.

Every organization at the University of Pittsburgh
can boast of members serving the war effort. Beta
Kappa Chapter of Kappa Psi, one of the largest
fraternities in the School of Pharmacy, is no exception.
Formerly, the brothers were concerned with the
matter of fact life of any fraternity . . . making
laboratory experiments, reading papers before the
American Pharmaceutical Association, and planning
banner social events. Today, members of Kappa Psi
can be found in the army and the navy. They are
attached to base hospitals in the army; they go over-
seas With hospital units; their fronts are the labou-
tories on ships. Kappa Psi men take care of pre-
scriptions; aid the physicians as far as they are able.
Kappa Psi is participating actively to hurry the day
when peace will come.

RESEARCH BUREAU F03 RETAIL TRAINING
Nlembers of the Research Bureau staff coordinating
Retail Trainings many activities are Bishop Brown,
director; Ruth Branigan, assistant professor in adver-
tising; Elizabeth Sayre, librarian; Fred A. Egmore, JL,
associate professor in merchandising; XValter Sobotka,
instructor in applied arts; hlildred Moren, office
manager; Nancy L. Larson, instructor in salesman-
ship and supervisor of service shopping; Albert B.
Smith, Jr., assistant professor in retailing; and
Lillian Friedman, assistant professor in personnel
The Retail Bureau was founded in another war
year,-e1918. Pittsburgh was hitting its stride in
wartime production, and the downtown stores were
crowded as they are now. Busy executives realize
now, as they did then, the need for young people
especially trained for store careers.
The aims of the Retail Training Bureau are to give
t professional training to those planning to enter
retailing and to those wishing to become more
efficient in the field; to train special teachers and
supervisors in retailing; to conduct investigations for
the improvement of methods of selecting, training
and supervising the employees in retail stores.

Cathedral, the students of the Bureau are acquiring a very sound background for store careers.
The courses include advertising, sales promotion, personnel, fashion, industrial design, employ-
ment methods, merchandising, store organization, and labor relations. These activities
reflect the needs of the stores, especially now when the stores are faced with problems concerning
personnel and Operating. The staff is working with retailers on solutions and aids for these
The students learn while they earn and their instructors are storewise buyers, copywriters,
employment interviewers, floor managers, and merchandising men. They have the opportunity
to sell, help with window displays, model, and become acquainted with all the backstage
activities of the store, too.
Stores in wartime have an even greater responsibility in educating customers to new
materials and new merchandise, for they must aid in stopping panic buying and hoarding by
explaining shortages and substitutes. .111 :uldition to all this, they have taken it Vigorous part
in promoting civil and national projects so important in wartime. In line with the govern-
mentls conservation prog'am, they have used ads, special columns, booklets, radio programs,
and store Iiieetings to advise on the wear and care of clothing and furnishings to make them
last for the duration.
Stores have taken these activities as their patriotic duty and undertaken them with the
same skill and zest that they used before the war in selling. Their dramatic presentations have
proven that good deeds need not be dull.

SCHO0L 0F APPLIED SOCIAL SCIENCES
Dean XVilber Irvin Newstetter came to the
University to establish the School of Applied Social
Sciences in the fall of 1938. During these hrst five
years there have been 236 men and women who have
graduated with the degree of Master of Sciences in
Social Administration. Those who are not serving
with the armed forces are employed as Social XVorkers in
case work agencies, hospitals, settlements, community
centers, the YJV. 3A., the YAI. and XV.H.A., the
Girl Scouts, and Red Cross in this country and
abroad. These students came to the School after
completion of undergraduate work with a major in
the social sciences from many colleges and universities
in the United States and foreign countries.
A recent development at the University of
Pittsburgh is the plan for a Pre-Social Work iVIajor

The Social Science cirruculum is composed of an integrated experience in
class and field. Each student has field instruction in a social work agency in
the community under the supervision of a qualified field instructor during the
four trimesters in the school.
The various Specializations are family, child welfare, medical and psychiatric
social use work, social group work, community organization, public welfare
administration, and social research.
SCHO0L 0F LAW
The Law School of the University of Pittsburgh,
founded in 1843 and moved on campus in 1936, has
become an integral part of the University. It carries
on its work by endeavoring to teach law in the ttgrand
mannely and to make lawyers Who will play an
important part in the civic and business life of the
community. This is done in the manner of teaching
under the environment and spirit of the University,
With all the Universityis social, educational and
cultural advantages. It takes seven years to gain
a law degree, for Pitt is one of the minority who
require college graduation before actual entrance
into Law School.
Although most of the law students are now in
military service, the. remaining students under the
supervision of their Dean, Judson Adams Crane, are
following along in accordance with the high standards
set by those men who have gone before them.

Student Faculty Association of years past became
a new organization in the tiPitt at VVaIy set-up.
The Emergency Student Government Committee
took over SFiXhQ old duties with many innovations.
Now, instead of an entire student representation,
they have invited into their membership men from
different companies of AST. This Student-AST
group makes up the Coeop Committee. The social
committee topped all social events with their after-
football game dances at the Sehenley where records
and eokes flowed.
Perhaps you saw some blonde lass with her skirt
supporting a lap of shiny pennies . . . she was
working in the spirit of the Penny Drive. ESGC
collected 22,000 pennies in a short while. The Bond
Drive and the War Fund were very successful
projects and in keeping with the spirit of the day.

MEN9S GLEE CLUB
Pitt,s oldest men's organization is determined to
keep active despite the crucial man shortage here
at home. Under the direction of iT019 Finney
twenty some men met twice a week to rehearse
either in 3209 Cathedral 01' among the steam pipes
and meters of the Heinz Chapel basement. Blember-
ship is only about half that of u prewar club, but
these would-be crooners are filled with the same
amount of spirit that kept a larger club together.
Due to war conditions, Pitts Glee Club did not
make any tours during the last year, and it is um
likely that they Will make any extensive trips for
the duration of the war. Their yearly minstrel
show was set aside for this year, and in its stead the
boys worked along with the Pitt Players in their
spring musical comedy.

has fostered happy University living and association
through study, worship, discussion, fellowship, and
social activity. Open to all races and creeds, the
YWCA has concerned itself with coordinating the
interests of different student groups. As a service
organization the YWCA has pioneered in meeting
campus and community needs. The girls have given
their time knitting and collecting clothing for refugees
and war afflicted children. They have worked in
settlement houses, served at Canteens, sold War

From battle stations in the Pacific, from hospital
beds in England and North Africa, and from Army
camps within the country, discharged veterans of
Wyorld War II have come to the comparative calm 0f
Pitt campus. Early this spring, after a census taken
at the February registration. these men organized
under the direction of Theodore W'. Biddle, dean of
men. Proposed plans were discussed at a dinner
meeting at which members of the military staffs at
Pitt were present. Since thou, prexied by hlzii'ine
Corporal Larry Bogart, who was wounded when the
USS. Hornet went down in the Pacific, the associa-
tion has become an integral part of menls campus
activities. United by common experiences, the men
will occupy an important position in life at the Uni-

Reserve OHiCei's 'lti'uining Corps is not the same organization today that it was :1 year ago
this time. Last BIui'ch, when the government stopped issuing contracts to ROTC units, the
advanced corps consistcd of 93 111011, and the basic corps numbered 800 men within its ranks.
Now the advanced group is 11011-exist2111t, and there is a total of barely 125 men in the hasiv.
Upon reception of the government order htst spring. 0110-thi1'd 0f the seniors reported to
OCS at Fort, Monroe, in June. Two-thirds of the seniors returned to Pitt as Company D of
the AST, after their basic training, and shipped out for OCS to Camp Davis in September.

D in November and were ordered to OCS at Fort Benning in Blanch.
Instead of the coastal defense and anti-ztirm'aft training; that the basic corps used to receive
the men are now being trained along hues that will prove useful in any branch of the service.
All of the traditional rermnonies 0f the Corps, which were dependent gr mtly upon the ad 'anced
ROTC, have been eliminated for the du'ntion. Social activities have been curtailed. and
S 'ahhard and Blade, in accordance with its contract, has gone inactive till the war is over.

This year Pitt Rifles, honorary fraternity for basic corps men, was com-
posed of only one platoon of thirty men, but their jaunty strut made them easy
enough to pick out of the blue and gold file of Pitt ROTC uniforms. They'll
tell you they have a good reason for being and that is to give cadets training
in military leadership. Extra drill follows ROTC class for them on Saturdays
and they meet each Tuesday during drill hour.
Captain Thomas BI. Bricker, the guiding light of Pitt Rifles, went all out
with them to make the hiiniature Military Ball an adequate substitute for
Pittls former leading social event. Postx 211' plans include the 1'e-establish1nent
of the BIilitary Bull and the increase in membership to eighty men.

Bill Vecnis spun Ursula Halloran out onto the floor
and 1525 couples followed to the sweet and swing
tunes of Bill Hindsi Orchestra.
The dance was opened to the public this year and
while the cadets attended in traditional ROTC
uniforms, their dates and outsiders discontinued the
practise of formal dress. The guest of honor was
Major Merlin V. Wills and his wife and Capt. Thomas
G. Bricker who has worked as advisor to the group.

ttA" Company, which consists of two hundred and seven prospective
engineers, is squeezed into the eleventh and twelfth floors of the Cathedral of
Learning between E Company above and the Air Corps below. The men of
this company were sent here from camps all over the country, and, in aggregate,
they represent one hundred and twenty4w0 colleges and thirty-two states.
For Home of the men, the ttslide-I'ulei' work is new, but others are merely
taking up the square roots where they left them before the war. ttA't has the
distinction of being Visited every morning at reveille by the Officer in Charge.
It seems that the boys have a little trouble getting up, which only proves the
old story about the fate of the Army bugler. Company WK" also runs true to
form in that the boys are working like blazes.

of the newly founded Service programs. The "Dents" have Changed a lot
since Captain Baker took :1 group of hard working and hard living civilians over.
They have now become an efficient military organization with all the trimmings
but bur'ueks life. Despite studies, military courses, physieal training. regular
classes, and all their other G.I. activities, the boys have found time to hold :1
pair of dances, have a basketball team, drop back to their fraternities, and.
naturally keep the girls busy.
The motto the uDents" have posted above their orderly room door tells
about their change under army discipline. Now they say "Through These
Portals Pass the Best Dikrmy Dentists in the W'orld".
Company C, the Arinyis medical school division, was founded here at
Pitt 011 June 16, 1943, and has really started to grow up. The fellows are kept
busy, dashing t0 and from school, attending classes, taking four hours a week
of -2L1isthentics, and going to military drills. Then, of vourse, they have to
keep in trim for their Saturday inspections. As they say, mlihis military
discipline is rough? Even though there is so little time for extru-cui'ricular
avtivities. Company C sponsored a dance for the boys at tho Edgewood Country
Club 011 December 18. The Companyk first graduating class has not had it
chance to see action but after a nine month period of internship the boys will
receive their commissions and be assigned to their 'arious stations.
Company HD", composed of more than fifty members of Pittts First Your
Advanced ROTC. returned to the Ifniversity last November 13 after 18 weeks
of basic training. Ordered to active duty upon completion of the spring
semester last year, the men left for the New Cumberland Reception Center 011
June 23, then one week later were shipped to Fort Eustis, Virginia.
These men have been returned to the University for further academic
training in the School of Engineering under the direction of the AST. All of
the men are avaiting appointment to Officer's Candidate School as required
by their ROTC oontrzu'ts with the Army.

Company E was the fir. , of lhe basic engineering companies to be organized
at Pitt. For two weeks, the, men lived at Shadyside in a G.I. heaven of soft
bull, bunk fatigue, and free, time. After a short furlough, they moved to the
12th floor CL, and, guided by Capt. John Finnerty and Sgt. E. R. A. Seofield,
headed into Term 1.
The work was hard, and the Company lost some men at ternfs end but
bolstered by the memory of the Company dance at W'ebster Hall, unolher

This group of men from eighteen t0 twenty-seven years of age, eligible
physically and mentally to participate in Air Crew Training, were assembled
at Basic Training Center No. 10, Greensboro, North Carolina, where for a
period of two to three months they sweated out that particular form of torture
known as basic.
From Greensboro the boys were shipped north to the University of Pitts-
burgh to take the preliminary five months of college training before being
classified. The boys arrived at Pitt on November 8, 1943, and Squadron C
was Officially formed.
The men of L quadron D arrived here October 19, 19453, for their five months
college training course. The main body nne from Greensboro, N rth dtrolina,
with the rest coming from Eliami Beach to complete the squadron.
XVith Lt. X Illiam L. Le 'enson as their Ta 1cal 0 er, these men upheld
the t'adition 0f the 60th CTD by becoming a. well trained squadron whose
dlb 'lplille and morale was exceptionally high.
During the course of their stay here at Pitt, they were largely responsible
for the first musical comedy ever to be staged by the Air Crew Students, the
11ever-to-be-forgotten "'The Lidts Oftm. It was a, smash hit which sold a million
and a half dollars worth of tVar Bonds to help boost the fourth var 102111 drive

The fh t thing that struck the fellows about Pitt, vas, as always, the
terrific Chow, which made eveI'Vbo very happy and still does. Then came
the seemingly infinite period 1 ore their restrit ion was lifted and they were
able to find out that all they had 11 ,1 about the fair ty VHS true, which
also made them very happy.

liF or Pittsburglfs glory and the honor of the
University,i is an appropriate tally for our men and
women in the armed services. Especially, the Unie
versity is proud of those who have been decorated
for valor, for these citations honor not only the men
who received them but also other Pitt men and women
who are fighting with them. T hey honor, too, the
l members of the faculty who were their teachers and
1 who, daily, through the cheerful performance of extra
wartime duties share the victory, sacrifice, and valor.
Their deeds of unbelievable bravery in the face of
action are tremendous. In a battle ofl' Guadalcanal.
a boy removed shell casings from white hot guns with
his bare hands after his asbestos gloves burned out;
another, seeing one of his men lying wounded in a
gun emplacement directly in the line of Japanese
machine gun fire, left his shelter and removed the
wounded man to safety; a navigator on a flight
mission over Sfax returned to his position next to a
burning engine, after being ordered to bail out, and
got rid of a load of 1000 pound bombs, making sure
that all the bombs were away, before a crash landing
was made. For these actions and others like them,
Pittls men have been cited with 1 Navy Cross, Jr
Distinguished Service Crosses, 22 Distinguished Fly-
ing Crosses, 37 Air Medals, 11 Silver Stars, 1 Soldier's
Bledal, 14 Purple Hearts, and numerous Oak Leaf

ATHLETICS AT PITT
ilCrueialii was the only word to describe the collegiate sports
picture when the summer of 1943 rolled around. A lowered draft
age and the calling up of the Army and Navy Reserves in the
colleges seemingly eliminated all those boys who formerly par-
ticipated in the sports programs. llIore than 500 of the so-called
Arm'y schools abandoned formal athletics completely. Blany others
were saved only by the presence of Navy trainees who were per-
mitted to compete on the college teams.
But Pitt, convinced of the value of sports in peacetime, was
even more convinced of the value of sports in wartime. Both
Arm; and Navy officials had gone on record With the statement
that contact sports Offered the finest kind of training for war a boy
could get outside of actual combat.
Pitt determined to carry on its athletics and to give the boys
coming into school an Opportunity to participate and get into
condition for the great battles to come.
This year Pitt fielded football, basketball and baseball teams.
Plans were also made to have golf, tennis and track teams if there
were enough boys Who wanted them. An Intramural program was
m'ganized for both fraternities and independents.
And a major part Of the athletic program was given over to
conditioning the Army men stationed at Pitt.
It is an athletic program geared 0f the present and laying a
foundation for the future at the same time it is preparing young
men for future military duty.

As I was saying -
War translated into football meant 17-year olds,
deferred men, and students classified 4-F for those
schools dependent wholly 0n civilian material. But
it also meant heightened competition, for football was
open to everyone at Pitt this year.
There were six freshmen in the lineup Pitt sent
against Notre Dame, September 25, and five of these
had not yet registered with their local boards. First
string quarterback Joe NIOCha, who combined football
with a preedent course, was a 17-year-old freshman
from St. Clair, Pa. Other 17-year-olds in the lineup
were center D011 Fisher, guard Gary Feniello, end
Jim Maloney, and fullback Bill Abromitis. Only
Francis NIattioli at left guard was a, regular on the
previous Pitt team, while dent freshman Frank
Knisley, and Dick Trachok played whatever positions
needed to strengthen the team.

The largest crowd ever to witness a Pitt opening game, 58,000, -ame out, to watch the
Panthers meet the Irish, September 25. Pitt had the mlw formation, but Notre Dame had
Betelli, Lujack, Kelly, Rykovich, hIiller, 316110 and the MP" formation. The very young
Panthers, with five 17-year-olds in the starting lineup, tried hard, but as one Chicago writer
so aptly summed it up, ttIt V35 :1 case of the t"1w against a '330 Of TNT."
. PITT 18 1 WEST VIRGINIA 0
October 9 marked the Opening of the
ttreztlh Pitt season as the Panthers met
a team their own size for the first time.
To reserve quarterback Joe Kielh went
the honor of scoring the first Pitt touch-
down of the year. Fourth down, two
yards to go, the R'Iountaineer line closed
in for a line plunge, but hlr. Kielb
decided to keep the hall himself and 'an

Steve Juswik, and a former Duke
nemesis, Steve Lach, contributed most
of the damage to the Panther cause.
PITT 25 e ILLINOIS 33
The Pitts went to Illinois for this one,
At the half, they appeared to be soundly
beaten, 19A0. The Pitt defensive half-
bueks had a tendency to stand still in
their t 'acks and Eddie Bray and Eddie
Nchovern had at tendency to run around
the ends for long scoring gains. But
the Panthers put on a second half finish
that made people wonder if Pitt had
changed teams as well as sides at the
half. Pitt completed 14 out 0f 17 passes
attempted as they amassed 25 points.
But Illinois also picked up 14 points in
the second half to make the final score
33e95. It was the largest collection of
points a Pitt team had ever made in
losing a game.
PITT 45 - CARNEGIE TECH 6
Short of shooting the scorekeeper, the
Panthers did everything possible to keep
down the score of this game, but the
Shaughnessy coached team was just too
much for the game, Willing, but sadly
inept Tartzms. Only fH came out for
football at Tech this yea ' and 22 of these
had never before played football. Every-
one. of the 65 boys listed on the Pitt
roster saw action in the game. The final
Pitt touchdown was scored by a member
of the scrub team.
PITT 18 e BETHANY 0
Not too mueh x'as known about

ly, the Panthers decided to devote the
first half to sounding them out. They
slougherl through a scoreless first half,
but pushed across three touchdowns in
the final stanza to give them their second
shutout win of the season. The Panthers
evidently hearing in mind their lapses at
Illinois. were particularly good defens-
ively against the bigger Bethany Navy

The Buckeyes, with only one previous
Win, seemingly made up for all the short-
comings of their season in this one game.
111 possession of the hall eight times
during the first half, they scored seven
times. Fleet halfhaeks Ernie Parks and
Dean Sensaubaugher made the Buckeyes
Virtually unstoppable. The Panthers
held the or U third and fourth teams
scoreless during the second half and
Jack Itzel went over for the only Pitt
score of the game.
PITT 0 e PENN STATE 14
Penn State was rated a two touchdown favorite over the Panthers which is exactly what
the final score showed them to be. But the Panthers were never very far out of this ball game
and, with a few breaks, might have won. They couldlft get their offense going and dropped
enough passes to break up five ball games.
One of the ironic oddities 0f the game V'as supplied by ex-panther Bill Abromitis who
scored the first State touchdown. Lone bright Spot for the Panthers was Francis hIattioli's
brilliant performance at guard.

Once upon a time a coach merely had to
worry about the lineup the opposing team was
going to set against him. But wartime foot-

any finality one day just What his lineup is

The golfers, coached by Nick Kliskey, won two and lost two games of a four game schedule.
They bowed to West Virginia and Navy, but defeated good neighbor Carnegie Tech twice.
Tennis, under Dr. Dave OTLoughlin and Charles GDOQ Hartwig resulted in one win and
three losses. The netters defeated Tech, 6-3 and led in a second match, 2-1 when the ruins came
to the Tartan rescue. However, they were whitewashed by Army and Navy, and lost to Penn

PIIYbICAL TRAINING PROGRAM FOR ARMY AIR CADET
AND A. S. T. P. GROI'P
A major part of Pitt's athletic program this year was given over to a group of men whose
names never appear in box scores or in sports page headlines. For with the coming of the
Army to Pitt, it became the job of the Athletic Department to provide a program of physical
fitness for the soldiers in training.
Running, cahsthenics, and swimming were the three main divisions of Pittts prog'am to
condition its Army students for future battles. A specialized course in wartime aquatics vas
given to teach the men to swim under conditions of actual warfare. They swim fully clothed
in fatigue suits, with packs on their backs, and through burning oil and gasoline.
In charge of conditioning the Air Corps students was Bob Hoel. Stanley Olenn was in
charge of the Army Specialized Training students. Assisting them were baseball coach Ralph
Mitterling, Warren Heller, Tar Onder, Mike Josephs, and Charles Hartwig.

Despite the decreased number of pre-meds, the

requirements, Chi Rho Nu has remained an active
cog among Pitt honoraries. And, as Johnny VVeimer
says, ttThe standards will not be lowered even if there
is no longer anyone eligible? Their standards are
stiff, too. The group requires a 2.2 average for the
freshman year and demands that the candidates have
participated in two other campus activities.
The war has slowed down the social interests of the
group, and this year the annual banquet was the main
attraction. The boys have been more interested,
instead, in seeing What their future careers as doctors
will be like. They have spent a great deal of time at

NU SIGMA SIGMA
Newest 0f Pitfs honoraries, Nu Sigma Sigma was
founded in December, 1943 due to the planning of
Virginia Jackson their honorary president. A
natural science fraternity for both men and women,
it maintains one of the highest scholastic averages on
campus. Qualifications for membership in this
Fraternity are that a student must carry at least
twelve credits in natural sciences with a 2.2 quality
point average in their field and at least a 2.0 for a
general average quality point. LVIeetings are held
twice a month where they are entertained by guest
speakers and motion pictures, With their social high-
light placed on the initiates banquet held in the Spring.
The purpose of bringing such a group together is to
create a better understanding and appreciation of
relations between the various bunches of sciences.
The members feel that by integrating their scientific
knowledge from their chosen fields they bring about
a closer fellowship.

determine the strikes and spares made at their in-

meetings where food is the main issue. About one-

Dean Holhl'ook, are alumni of Sigma Tau. The
previous membership of forty has been reduced to
fifteen but the quality and spirit of the fellows is the

Panhellenic Association, functioning through its
council of fraternity representatives, worked toward
its purposes of inter-group co-operation in the fratern-
ity life of the women on campus. The usual reception
that, they give for 2111 Freshman women took place in
the Stephen Foster hiemorial. The receiving line,
the tea and cakes, and the pleasant conversations
were enjoyed by both the fraternity women and the
freshman. The same spirit was present at the tea for
transfers, an important event in 2L late orientation to
Pitt. In line With the activities of the regular Pun-
hellenic Council, there was a Junior Council organized
by the pledges, which turned out quite successfully.
The Inter-Fraternity Sing was one of the highlights of
the year. Each fraternity worked to make its own
skit the best, and everyone, including the judges,
contributed to the success of the affair.
Fraternities play an important part in the campus

The house at 4206 Bigelow has been really busy
this year. They honored their district president and
their national president with a tea. The soldiers have
had a royal welcome from the Tri-Delts too. One of
their many dances for the soldiers stationed at Pitt
was a Christmas dance featuring Mrs. Santa Claus,
alias Lola XVard.
The XVard Home for Children also met the Tri-Delt
Santa Claus :it a party with loads of presents and cake
and candy. Then came a very special night . . .

Delts placed iirst in the Interfraternity Sing. Then,

The afiTairS, Jane Logan tells us, have included parties
and tea dances for the menVs fraternities on campus,
slumber parties at the house, and bridge parties.
The gals have served as hostesses at the local Canteens,
sold war bonds, and have done much to make the

Phi Sigma Sigma started the year by holding ttOpen
HouseU to Show off their spie-an-span apartment.
Keeping in the social swing, they soon had it bridge
from which the proceeds went to the Variety Club
Canteen. For this contribution the girls were invited
to be Junior Hostesses one day at the Variety Snack
In December enough contributions were made by
Phi Sig chapters of the country to send a, Clubmobile
overseas. The local apartment rapidly became a
defense center . . . here the girls made rag dolls for
the China XVar Relief Fund and here, too, they
relaxed in their favorite room, the comfortable living

The Pi Kappa Alphak formerly prexied by Abbie
Steinkiwhner, closed their Bellefield house for the
duration to take over the ttPilot House,, or twelfth
floor at XVebster Hall. Their new headquarters
proved more than adequate for their jamhorees and
has many advantages, besides. Thereis the hotel
swimming pool, sun deck, civic center, and no lawn
to sweep. The ping pong table, the miniature red
piano, and the record machine are welcome holdovers
from the old house.
Most popular social events were the Candlelight
Dance given by the pledges for the fi'uters, and the
Saturday afternoon coke parties. The Brothers have
representatives 011 most of the campus organizations.
This typical war chapter kept up the spirit of fratern-
ity life by taking the IF football title in October, and
taking second phtce in the IF sing.

The t 'zu' challenge has been met by Pi Lambda Phi,
and the purple and gold still hangs over the mantle
at 225 North Dithridge. A successful rushing program
made Pi Lam one of the largest fraternities 011 'ampus.
The fritters, prexied by Stan Levy in the fall, can
boast of active participation in the organizations still
functioning on campus and have, in addition, not
only W011 the coveted Scholarship Avard again, but
also set it record-breaking average for fraternities at
Pitt. Once more they have brought home the Pi Lam
national fraternity scholarship zu'ard.
The var has taken its share of Pi Lams; the service
plaque of fighting men is almost filled. Our fighting
forces were well represented at the Yuletide House
Dance. Pi Lambda Phi wontt forget the war effort
until Victory is ours.

tried to make their activities the same in their head-
quarters 011 Bellefield Avenue. At least, in this whirl-

The early summer months of 1943 cut deeply into
the active enrollment of Sigma Chi fraternity, for the
graduating; class and Uncle Sam together contributed
in lowering the active membership from 55 t0 5 men.
wSig House', 011 Center Avenue had to he closed but
the five remaining men curried 011 the functions of an
active chapter. In the summer of 43 they rushed
and held their meetings in University classrooms.
Fall rushing brought better results, and Lady Luck
helped the boys find a seven room furnished house on
NIelwood Street. Walls were washed, and painted,
furniture was polished, and everything was arranged
for the fellows to move in.
The new HSig; House" was opened and the eleven
active brothers were able to feel as if they were really
a part of Pittts Fraternity Row.

i gm appreciation
To all who believed that a 1944 OWL was possible
and worked for it; to all who offered cheerful encourage-
ment and invaluable service throughout the entire year; to
all who embodied our motto uDamn the pessimists, full
speed aheaXm who spent long hours writing and re-writing
l copy, laying out pages and proportioning pictures, pasting
l up panel after panel and using up jar after jar of rubber
' cement, filing circulation cards and collecting payments,
I , taking part in midnight sessions of production to meet
l menacing deadlinese-we offer our sincerest appreciation
and thanks. It is because of these efforts that we now pass
this book on to others, smile proudly, and say: Wl'he
OWL is now yoursethe record of an eventful and surpris-
ing year in the life of the students, faculty, and military
personnel of your University."
