Rather, we wish to honor- every individual and every' generation which have contrilouted to making Pitt since the days ot Hugh Henry Brackenridge's Academy. To those who have given to the spirit ot Pitt, to those who have guided its ever-upward growth, to those who have loved Pitt, We dedicate this OWL. "Thou who unto knowledge bore us, ln the good old days long gone, Raise the Gold and Blue high o'er us, Lead and We will follow on." -George M. Baird IN MEMORIAM William T. Root, Ph. D., Dean of the Grad- uate School, Professor and Head of the Department of Psycholoqy. Kendall S. Tesh, Ph. D., Professor of Chemistry. Henry Sayre Scribner, Litt. D., Professor Emeritus of Greek. Reid T. Stewart, Sc. D., Professor Emeritus of Mechanical Engineering. 5 6 LOOKING UPWARD ln these days ot turmoil and dark victories it is good to be able to see beyond the black clouds, to be able to look up-and ahead. As the child looks to his parent and as man looks to his God, we search tor that above us. 'Point me to the skies,' the Bible reads and a church steeple directs us heaven-ward. lnspir- ation comes in a shimmer ot sunlight on a gold cross against blue sky. The same inspiration, same loiti- ness, grew with the Cathedral oi Learning. Walk down your ODK walk. Unconsciously your face turns upward and sunshine warms your face. This upward impulse is more than a physical reaction. Chancellor Bowman wanted the University to be an inspiration- a call to new heights. And that is what he wants Pitt to do for each senior before he is graduated, for each professor before he teaches, and for each soldier who returns here at dusk. The l945 OWL, then, should be a book to show how our University, in its fourth year oi war, looks ahead. lt should tell that we can see beyond Salerno and victory shitts and casualty lists, without forgetting them. The OWL is a written promise that we are building-with eyes sky high- building upward and ever looking beyond. JOHN G. BOWMAN RETIRING CHANCELLOR E31 I? PITT OWL Pitt Owl did not become his great self by being born that way. He was, in fact, just a common owl until he got the last bit of owl egg-shell picked off himself. Then he began to add nice, though small, improvements to his personality. just what he did of this sort we do not know, for he is never very confidential. But we do know that on his first flight from the Deep Woods he came to a high niche on the Cathedral where he has lived ever since. Very likely it does not matter that his bringing up is rather obscure. Erom these early days Pitt Owl has shown that he is not a common owl. For one thing, he never suggests that you look up to him. Yet something about his personality rather requires that you do look up to him-living as he does at so high a niche. This shows his whimsical notion that it is good always to look up. Pitt Owl seems to be mostly feathers, the kind you would like to touch if you could reach so high and were sure that he would not bite. He never has a bedraggled look. He never has a hungry look, either, and there is not a hint about his feath- ers or bill that he has ever eaten one of the pigeons that some- times fly near his bailiwick. ln these ways he shows that he is a likable bird. The plainest thing about Pitt Owl is that he has got wisdom. He never makes a noise that is just a nuisance. He does make noise, but it is always of a tuneful heart-stirring sort-the kind you would make if you knew how. Mostly, though, he listens, his ear-tufts, longer and fluffier than ear-tufts of common owls, show that. ln the fleche on the Heinz Chapel he listens to the organ and to the choir and to sermonsg and in his niche he listens in on science talks. lf you ask him what he likes to listen to, he just turns the other way. He will not answer you by a nod toward the Chapel or toward the Cathedral. Yet you can not possibly miss the main idea in his head which is, of course, that it took a great deal of different kinds of listening to become Pitt Owl. But if you ask even a sillier guestion, he would not hoot you. He would probably hoot, not at you but in a nice advisory way, sounding somewhat like You-oo-oo-can-be-you-oo-oo. That hoot is said to be an intimation about everyone at Pitt. Even on short acquaintance his wisdom is awfully plain. Pitt Owl likes to be seen-not that he uses claw or bill polish. But he does like to be seen, that is, to have friends who are not dumb or too slow to get an idea. The tilt of his head one way or another shows that. He never rolls his eyes, and in telling one idea or another seldom lifts a wing. But when an extra good idea comes along, such as some mention about pigeons, he likes to dance a step or two, wings up. lf you take down what he says in any one of his best minutes, it makes an English theme that would get marked A plus. So it is plain why it is good to have Pitt Owl around and why he is looked up to as he sits in his high niche, especially at about 8:00 AM., buff in the sunshine, looking East. lohn G.

Fitzgerald, Vice-Chancellor The Cathedral of Learning is concrete proof of how a man created a dream and through constant hope and effort was able to guide its growth from a skeleton foundation into a forty-two floor university. We find this height symbolical of the spirit of Pitt and of the dream of Chancellor lohn Cf. Bow- man who watched each girder reach- ing higher into the sky .... Here, we have found our theme, "Looking Upward". Each administra- tor is helping that spirit in his own special way. Let us show you how by telling you what they have been doing and what they are looking forward to in post-war years. Cur friendly vice-chancellor, Bufus Fitzgerald, Chairman of the Commis- sion on Arts of the Association of Am- erican Colleges, has helped Pitt adjust itself to its many War Training Pro- grams. ln one program more than 7,000 men in uniform received part of their training at our University. Now, because of its selection as a testing I. Gilbert Quick. Registrar center, Pitt administers tests to all qualifying veterans of 'Vlfestern Penne sylvania sending them to schools best suited to their needs. Mr. Fitzgerald is helping Pitt get ready to educate veterans coming to the University under the G. l. Bill of Bights and the Disability Bill, and with the new semes- ter he will assume the honored duties of Chancellor of Pitt .... Dr. lohn Weber, Secretary of the University, is "looking forward" to the future with a smile-a big hopeful smile, for Dr. W'eber predicts a bright Pitt future in increased student enrollment, re- fresher courses, expansion in graduate research work and the proposed stu- dent dormitories .... Our ever busy Begistrar, I. G. Quick, told us, "lf last year's student enrollment trend con- tinues, the Begistrar's staff will be obliged in 1945 to "look upward" to see the tops of the mounting stacks of registration cards. The real "look up- ward" however, will be our happy privilege to serve the increasing num- ber of returned veterans who will be prparing for the future through courses at Pitt." Dr. Quick has done much to establish and maintain the friendly relationships that exist between our University and Pittsburgh's secondary schools .... And these relations bring our freshman into their first social con- tact with Pitt where they meet the Dean of Women and the Dean of Men. Freshmen find first that Pitt women are cz tradition. They are young ladies who are complimented on the grace with which they meet strangers, their poise when theylserve tea from the impressive samovars, and their ability to organize and to work together. lt is the helpfulness of our Dean of Women's Office that earns them this reputation. All who have come to know them appreciate Miss Ruth Becker and Mrs. Lucy Millard, the two secretaries, for their cheery greetings: Miss Adrienne Hill's help with housing and employment problemsg Miss Harf riet Glasser's aid with outside activi- ties, Miss Elizabeth Teal's training of the Nationality Boom hostessesy Miss Alison Stewart's management of the Heinz Chapel, Mrs. lune McDowell's assistance in the Information Boom. In the room across the hall, Miss Helen Pool Bush, Dean of Women, lends a spirit of grace and dignity to the hurry-scurry of our city university. Her dreams for new dormitories, with a special wing for commuters to spend a night and the re-opening of the twelfth floor are her pet issues for Pitt's future. The whole department is "looking upward" because, in reality, they have just begun .... But they're not the only ones. ln addition to the continuation of the work assigned to the Dean of Men's Office, the boys in there have grinned and tackled even more. Pitt has kept in closer touch with the service men and women than any other school in the country, and the credit can easily be attributed to the fact that every eight weeks Dean Bid'- dle's staff plays post office, mailing seven thousand news-letters to Pittites in the armed forces. Pitt men enjoy their informal meetings with Dean Theodore W. Biddle, former Hall ot Fame man, and his ability to put them at immediate ease has won him their confidence. As Director of Personnel Services for Veterans, Dean Biddle helps returning service men to become happy members of our University family. Assistants to Dean Biddle are Bobert L. Arthur, as special advisor to veterans and counselor to student activities, and Baymond P. Brittain, as special advisor to fraternities. Mr. Arthur finds in the re-establishment of the band and orchestra an indication of the spirit of peace time Pitt, and Mr. Brittain sees great hope for mature leadership through participation in fraternity life. William Daufenbach, on duty in the information room, is the Dean's assistant who trains the mar- shals of the Cathedral, and he, too, has victory year training in mind. The secretaries of the office, Mrs. Alice Dor- field, Miss Lois Bowbottom, and Miss Betty Maloney are always prepared with a pleasant "Hello" and immedi- ate problem aid. Here is another office that is "looking upward" today for their students of tomorrow. But, there are many others on whom we depend. The chief of these are the deans of our schools, for to them be- longs the responsibility of directing our educational program and growth. lf there is any development in Pitt's search for unattained heights, it must come from these men and women. Iohn Weber. Secretary 13 l14l "After the war-" is the keynote of our faculty, a keynote tangible and alive to them, something to shape and build now for the Pitt that is to follow. . . . Texas-reared Vincent Lanfear, Dean of the School of Business Admin- istration, is "looking upward" with plans for an advisory committee of businessmen who will cooperate with the school's faculty by keeping them in touch with the changing problems and events of the post-war business world .... A member of the National Education Board, Dean S. P. Eranklin of the School of Education can see the national, over-all changes in the edu- cational field. Therefore, the School, under Dean Eranklin, is looking for- ward to educational testing labs and workshops that will bring more real- istic training to students of teaching. . . . Erom indications, studies made among the armed services prove that large numbers of returning veterans will be interested in engineering courses and Dean Elmer Holbrook of the Engineering ci Mines School is keeping posted on new trends in na- tional engineering education to pre- pare E. ci M. for the expected increased enrollment .... The College, under Dean Stanton Crawford, has carried on a large teaching program in both the liberal arts and the sciences. Both have been heavily burdened during the war, but Dean Crawford is busy planning new programs that will be timely to serve the special interests of the veterans and civilians .... The Research Bureau for Betail Training is visualizing a future in which young men and women returning from the armed services will be vocational- minded and will look with interest toward a program that offers special- ized training for the retail field. Direc- tor Bishop Brown and the Bureau staff are glad to be back on the regular two- semester year, because the Bureau course is a concentrated one for a normal year at best and reached posi- tively hectic proportions under war- time acceleration .... The Law School with ludson A. Crane as Dean, is ex- pecting a greatly increased enroll- ment after the war is over and is join- ing with other law schools and bar associations in planning refresher and retainer courses for the 'lawyers of Western Pennsylvania who will return from the Service .... lncreasing de- mands for trained social workers have been the main war problems for Dean W. l. Newstetter of the School of Ap- plied Social Sciences. However, the School is "looking forward" with a post-war aim of meeting the need for competent social science graduates trained on the regular two-semester plan .... Though off immediate cam- in Robert L. Arthur v Mrs. Alice Dortield, Miss Betty Maloney Raymond F. Brittain Harriet Glasser und Betty Teal Ruth Becker and Lucy Millard pus, the extensive reach of the Nursing School and the Cadet Nurse program is recognized every time we stop to admire the gray and red of their pass- ing uniforms. Dean Ruth Kuehn is ac- tively "looking upward" by serving as a member of the Post War Planning Committee for Nursing Education .... "The School on the Boulevard" is a part of Pitt too. Pharmacy School with Dr. C. Leonard C'Connell as its Dean, is proud of its four hundred and fifty members serving the armed forces. Many will return to a School prepared to offer them vocational readjustment in the form of review and advanced courses .... Since fifteen members of the teaching staff of the School of Dentistry are in the Service, the faculty, as Well as the students, has been ex- tremely busy. But with all their over- load, Dean l-l. Edmund Eriesell and his faculty have not forgotten to plan for the time when some nine hundred alu- mni of the School will return to civilian life and the practice of dentistry for Adrienne Hill, Iune McDowell cmd Alison Stewart civilians. A complete program of grad- uate study ranging from short "refresh- er" courses to courses leading to grad- uate degrees is ready to function when V-Day comes .... Med School, and all of Pitt, is very proud of the Universitys General l-lospital Number 24 in New Cfuinea. lt is staffed with forty-five of the Medical School's faculty and one hundred nurses from local teaching hospital staffs. Dean "Bill "McEllroy as anxious as the hopeful M.D.'s to return to normal semester schedules and he is planning extensive graduate courses and increased hospital resi- dencies as Medical School's contribu- tion to a bigger and better Pitt. Our social life, our educational pro- grams, and surely our class Work all contribute to a spirit of Pitt, a Pitt which could easily mean nothing more than splendid architecture. But Pitt does mean more than that and department heads closest to us scholastically have helped foster that spirit in us. Each has post War plans We can outline here .... Professor Theodore Finney, 15 1 Vincent W. Lanfecxr. S. P. Franklin, William T. Root Iudson A. Crane Bishop Brown H. Edmund Friesell C. Leonard O'Connell music, expresses a part of that feeling when he said, "l am definitely looking upward, from the crypt of Heinz Chapel to something higher in the Cathedral." . . . Dr. Manuel Elmer be- lieves that sociology's aim is social adjustment in the community, nation, and world .... Dr. lames Taylor hopes for fuller realization of mathematics as a creative, imaginative, and inspiring art and science .... Dr. George lones, psychology, expects new research fol- lowing war stimulus .... Dr. W. H. Shelton, modern languages, has said, "Under the startlingly successful in- tensive method, students will speak and understand as never before." . . . Professor Frederick Mayer, English-- "We will keep alive the idea of the en- joyment of literature as a part of a satisfying life." . . . Dr. Elmer D. Graper, political science---"We will continue to offer opportunities for training in successful leadership." . . . Dr. 0. E. lennings, biology, looks forward to having all laboratories on the tenth floor. Dr. lames Stinchcomb, classics, ex- pects elementary Latin taught in col- lege and increased interest in Greek literature .... Miss Zoe Thralls believes geography courses will be remodeled by changing phases of aviation . . . Dr. Marion McKay hopes to continue inf tenmenng econonncs Enough cunent events .... Dr. M. R. Gabbert believes that philosophy has been "looking up- ward" always, essentially .... Dr. l-lovey, fine arts, looks forward to the return of ceramic courses and Dr. Henry Leighton, geology, is looking forward to more intensive labs, in- creased research facilities .... Dr. Alexander Silverman, chemistry, be- lieves "Our post-war aim is good sound teaching in fundamentals and in clear thinking" .... Dr. lohn W. Qliver, history, promises "After the war, we will offer History of Airpower and Technology of Modern Warfare." . . . Dr. F. W. Shockley, director of the Extension, expects a tremendous in- crease in future enrollment and further development of adult part-time educa- tion .... Dr. A. L. Robinson, Librarian, feels that the library will grow as Pitt's many departments expand and de- velop. That is the personality of Pitt's administration. With us, the students, they are turning to the future, confif dently, expectantly, together we are "looking upward." 'M ,,x T3i'fW Stanton C. Crawford Wilber I. Newstetier William S.

We've discovered that it's really learn- ing through living-the vital, exciting kind of learning that you absorb from lectures that challenge, from knowing those same lecturers as distinct per- sonalities, as friendly, sincere people whose wisdom is seasoned with a re- assuring humanness and humor. Our relationship with our professors ex- tends beyond the classroom, we're all working and relaxing together, part of that great "Pitt family" that it's so much fun to belong to. "We're here to help you," our professors emphasize, and we love their genuineness and turn to them for encouragement. We drop in to their offices for ten-minute chats that somehow stretch into hours, we swap jokes at teas and dinners, we invite them to join our sports dis- cussions over cokes in the Tuck Shops, we pause in the halls for a friendly, "l-lello there, how was your Vacation?" This Faculty l-lall of Fame is our way of saying "Thanks a million" to these men and women for wanting to know us, for taking the time and energy to be our friends, and for letting us know them. And, above all, it's a thanks for patiently guiding us to look upward with the Cathedral arches, to see be- yond the immediate pressure of the war and to fashion a clear-sighted perspective for our future. DR. H. CLIFFORD CARLSON Candid, cherub-faced "Doc" Carl- son is a Pitt tradition, known by all of us for his pixy sense of humor and his hearty grin. lndefatigable, he does double duty here-as Director of Men's l-lealth Service, he kids the boys out of feeling sick, while as our basket- ball coach he drills near-champion guintets. Author of several books on his favorite sport, Doc Carlson ardently supports his special "Fatigue Theory," stating that emotional trauma is more severe upon the health of coaches than exhausting play is upon the bodies of the competitors. An extro- vert, he enjoys clowning at pep rallies and basketball games. Students love to tell of the time when, sent from the floor by a referee, Doc tied a babushka around his white hair and cheered from the sidelines for the rest of the game. Week-ends find him transplant- ing his favorite hemlock and blue spruce on "Sunday Farm" at Ligonier. DR. FLORENCE TEAGARDEN Recognized as an expert in the field of child psychology, red- headed Dr. Teagarden is popular with her students for her informal method of conducting classes, clarifying complex theories by a host of amusing anec- dotes. l-ler lectures sparkle with a warmly personal tone rising from her genuine interest in the students, they sense that she is talking with them, not at them. Graduates find that her memory is amazing, she never forgets those who have been in her classes. We consider it a privilege to be able to include in this list Dr. Florence Teagar- den, who prepares us for life by gener- ously sharing with us her vast under- standing of human nature. MR. THEODORE FINNEY "Pop" Finney's nickname speaks for itselfp his students keep up their friendship with the twinkle-eyed pro- fessor of music appreciation long after graduation. Members of the l-leinz Chapel Choir can tell you that he's one of those rarities, a real artist with deep sensitivity and an even temper. The richness of their singing is a tribute to his skill as a conductor and a proof of their responsiveness to his personality. Pop's well-developed sense of humor ranges all the way from sparkling repartee, at which he can't be beaten, to dry wit that flashes forth sharply in guotable bits like his comparison, "Dumb, dumber, tenor." Mr. Finney's outside interests are as extensive as his campus duties, he finds relaxation in remodeling furni-- ture in his completely-equipped wood- shop, playing with his two fox terriers, Nip and Tuck, and working on his Somerset County farm. Our list would not be complete without Mr. Theodore Finney, who through his interest in art and in men has taught us how to look for beauty. DR. IAMES D. HEARD When white-haired Dr. lames Heard enters a lecture hall, the future doc- tors of our hill campus rise to show their respect for the "grand old man of medicine" who studied under Sir William Osler. He wisely realizes the value of knowledge made pleasant, and students long remember his vivid lectures. His dignity is tempered by a vein of wit and a flair for acting, the med students look forward to his classes, where they find fun in learn- ing. The tedious technicalities of medical tomes take on life and mean- ing under Dr. Heard's skilled presenta- tion. He dramatizes symptoms, mimics characteristic gaitsp now his voice is quiet and even, now it booms through the hall for emphasis. Despite the de- mands of his practice, Dr. Heard still manages to find time to encourage his students. Memorable as a man, a scientist, and as a teacher, Dr. lames Heard undisputably belongs in this Faculty Hall of Fame. MISS EMILY HOLMQUIST Nursing School is a closely-knit unit where faculty and students alike share the burden of the long hours and hard work of their chosen profession. Typ- ical of the staff there is soft-spoken, H. C. Carlson Florence Teaqcxrden Theodore Finney t 19 earnest Miss Emily l-lolmguist, who enjoys working with the girls. A recent Pitt graduate, she appreciates the stu- dents' viewpoint and firmly believes in their right to voice opinions demo- cratically. At the same time, she agrees that they should learn to use their freedom wisely. The present shortage of nurses has increased the responsibilities of the facultyg they are now geared to intense wartime ac- celeration, which leaves them very little spare time. Miss l-lolmguist spends her infrequent free moments in relaxing with music or the theater. Selflessly devoted to a vital cause, she guides Pitt students to look beyond themselves, to expand their horizons and aim skyward. DR. FRANK MCGINNIS 'Way over in Pharmacy School, stu- dents all like the free-and-easy spirit of camaraderie in Dr. Prank McGinnis' classes. Most pharmaceutical lectures have all the glamor of a stack of pre- scriptionsg Dr. McGinnis spikes the factual part of his material with a smooth flow of jokes to keep his stu- dents chuckling as they jot down pages of complicated formulae. l-le has an extensive knowledge of his subject and the enviable knack of turning out scores of students with a thorough grounding in pharmacy. Easy to talk to, he's fond of chatting with his pupils during class intermis- sions, while they in turn enjoy the chance to know their professor as a man. We're pleased to add Dr. Prank McGinnis as Pharmacy Schools repre- sentative to our Pitt Faculty Hall of Fameg he merits recognition as one who is secure enough in his innate dignity to command respect even when he puts himself on an informal basis with his students. Iumes D. Heard Emily Holmquist Frank McGinnis EDWIN PETERSON Ruddy-cheeked and tweedy, "Pete" injects life into his English classes by his tongue-in-cheek flickers of humor. We'd recognize that fine, clear voice anywhere, whether it's rolling through the slow-cadenced lines of his favorite Christina Rossetti or crackling through the Commons Room microphone at the traditional Christmas party. That's the time, incidentally, when, whis- kered and padded, Pete becomes our own Pitt Santa Claus. ln his spare time Mr. Peterson tries his hand at practicing the same writing principles that he teaches to his students, his short stories have been published in national magazines, while his full- length, idyllic No Life So Happy glows about the delights of fishing. We place him in an especially favored nook be- cause we admire his complete honesty and his enthusiasm for life that brims over to lend meaning to his lectures and warmth to his dealings with stu- dents. MISS RUTH SMALLEY Up in the School of Applied Social Sciences, students marvel at the im- pact of Miss Smalley's lectures. Quiet- spoken and crisply efficient, she con- ducts the kind of class in which every- one sits and listens actively, struck by the depth of her understanding of how people get that way. A word-eco- nomist, Miss Smalley gets to the heart of her material and compresses a wealth of knowledge into a single ses- sion. Cutside of class students find that her intelligence is combined with a likable genuineness and sense of humor. She's absorbed in her work, but not to the point of being one-sided, her outside interests indulge a sensi- tivity to beauty and include an ap- preciation for Edna St. Vincent Millay and Van Gogh. Because she's stripped Edwin Peterson Ruth Smalley D. D. Lessenberry 21 22 of superficiality and geared to the pace of our times, and because of her ability to provoke thought, we add Miss Smalley to our gallery of out- standing professors. DR. D. D. LESSENBERRY When students actually persist in arriving eagerly at eight-thirty for a first-hour class, you know that they really enjoy it. And no wonder-rain, snow, or smog, Dr. Lessenberry cheer- fully greets everyone with a few bars of "Oh, what a beautiful morningl" This impeccably-groomed professor of commercial education takes a per- sonal interest in each student, declar- ing, "l always try to make the students realize that they are worth knowing. They can learn, and l feel that it is my responsibility if they don't." That they do learn, and learn well, is shown by the membership list of Delta Delta Lambda, the honorary commercial ed fraternity which draws its name from Dr. Lessenberry's initials. Spring al- ways brings that "back to the land" gleam to his eyep he's justly proud of the prize roses that he cultivates on his sixty-acre farm in Fox Chapel. ln this man we recognize the gualities of a well-rounded person that we're striv- ing to achieve in our upward climb. DR. IOHN M. FERGUSON The catalogue lists him as john Max- well Ferguson, Ph.D., jur.D., but to the entire student body this wiry, ani- mated professor of economics is just plain 'jFergie". When exciting news breaks into the front page, we can count on Fergie to parade through the Tuck Shops, holding the headlines high for all to read. No school event is complete unless we see Fergie, cigarette holder in hand, nodding to his many friends and beaming at everyone in general. l-le's popular at fraternity house dances for his skill at Iohn M. Ferguson William F. Swanson Iohn I. Geise coaxing rhythm out of the most un- musical of pianos, and this year the freshmen unveiled him as the title figure to climax their Sultan Swing. Fergie remembers his former students, too, and mails copies of the Pitt News to many of them who are now in the armed services. We point with pride to this professor because he hasn't been submerged by the routines of academic life but has managed to re- main a memorable, colorful person- ality. DR. WILLIAM F. SWANSON Dental students unanimously agree that Dr. Swanson is an all-'round good fellow. Professor of bacteriology and histology, he is absorbed in his work and is always willing to explain his fine collection of slides to interested visitors. He trains his students well for the exacting precision of their profess sion, the boys complain good-na- turedly about his inspection of their slides, when "We had to grind those teeth down so fine that a breeze would bend them back and forthl" Between periods the dents like to gather around and hear about Dr. Swanson's latest hunting or fishing trip. Aviation en- thusiasts compare notes with him, too, for he is also an expert navigator. As a scientist with a talent for knowing how and when to relax, Dr. William Swanson deserves recognition in our Faculty Hall of Fame. DR. JOHN I. GEISE Today he's saluted by the Historical Research Department of the U. S. Army, but we University of Pittsburgh students still think of him as the tall, deep-voiced professor who helped us to discover that there's more to history than reciting dates. ln his survey course of world history, Dr. Geise made even the remoteness of the Paleolithic age seem real and exciting. Philip E. Rush Agnes Lynch Starrett Alexander Silverman t23l E241 I-le's a recognized scholar, too, and many schools use his textbook, Man and the Western World. Visits to his office were always a treat, they usually started with puzzling over the intricacies of a timeline and drifted from there into an hour or two of lively conversation about anything from football to the part that airplanes will play in the future. We look up to Dr. Geise because his height is mental as well as physical and because he is a far-sighted historian who is actively helping to shape our future. MR. PHILIP E. RUSH As an electrical engineer who man- ages to see farther than his sliderule, jovial, round-faced Mr. Rush has cap- tured the imagination of his students. His guips brighten the long hours of detailed lab work, and after class he joins the fellows in lively discussions of his many interests. If it's sports they like, he can add his bit as a baseball and football fan: stamp-collectors talk over rare issues with him, and the technical terms fly thick and fast when short-wave radio enthusiasts consult him about constructing sets. Eager to help his students, this easy-going pro- fessor advises several Engineering School organizations. MRS. AGNES LYNCH STARRETT Blue-eyed Mrs. Starrett with her halo of braids can scoff at those who cry that marriage and a career can't mix, she combines her two full-time jobs, as editor of the University Press and as mother of two lively children, with efficiency, patience, and good humor. We students have known her as a dis- cerning critic in English classes, as a co-operative, ever-ready advisor to The Owl, and as a down-to-earth, sin- cere friend. A loyal Pittite since her undergraduate days, Mrs. Starrett bakes cookies for the Chancellor every year on his birthday. With as deft a touch as she displays in the kitchen, she puts out the Pitt Quarterly and has published a complete history of the University. As one more of our faculty who has a sense of balance and who lives her ideals, Mrs. Agnes Lynch Starrett leads the University of Pitts- burgh on its road upward. DR. ALEXANDER SILVERMAN Dr. Silverman, who heads our chem- istry department, everyone likes im- mediately for his charming air and his guiet, ingenuous humor. Completely unaffected, he puts students at their ease by the sincerity of his interest in them and his eagerness to be of help. For instance, there's the well-known box of coughdrops that he keeps on his desk all winter for those who have colds. As a teacher he's thorough, patient, and stimulating, students are proud to be able to study under the guidance of the internationally re- spected authority on glass. Increas- ing outside recognition has accom- panied Dr. Silverman's rise on our campusg his list of honors and honor- ary societies is almost overwhelming. I-lis own glass collection is one of the most outstanding in the world. Fore- most in his field, loved for his gentle friendliness, Dr. Alexander Silverman is our idea of a truly remarkable leader. MR. ROBERT D. AYARS Bus ad students prize their associa- tion with the energetic and enthusias- tic chairman of the accounting depart- ment, Mr. Ayars. They admire his brilliance, are grateful for his clear- cut, well-organized presentation of a difficult subject, and have complete confidence in the fairness of his de- cisions in grading their papers. Both in and out of the classroom he displays a likable twinkle of humorg his jokes help to relieve the tension of exam days. Unraveling the intricacies of big business math still leaves Mr. Ayars some leisure time to perfect his tech- nique as an amateur magician and to work at cabinet-making. Sometimes he prefers to rough it for awhile by retiring to his cabin in the woods near Emlen- ton. Popular for his versatility, friend- liness, and helpfulness, Mr. Robert Ayars is representative of what is fin- est in our faculty. DR. EDNA T. BATZ Amid all the activity and confusion of her twelfth floor office, Mrs. Edna Batz, our YWCA Secretary, remains unruffled and good-natured. l-ler repu- tation as a Willing and sympathetic listener has spread, and she welcomes with a smiling, "Cf course l have time to see you," the many students who drop in to chat with her and to ask for advice. Prom her World travels she learned the art of Qriental flower ar- ranging, she often brightens the cor- ners of her office with delicately bal-A anced spikes of her home-grown irises and daffodils. We'll remember Mrs. Batz for the guiet Way in Which she fos- ters spiritual beauty on the Pitt campus by her cheerful encouragement, her understanding, and her calm, behind- the-scenes efficiency. MR. WALTER SOBOTKA Typically Continental, Mr. Sobotka continuously delights his students in Retail Training School with his soft Viennese inflections and his precise, glinting humor. l-lis classes in textiles are staccato, emphasized by flicks of his monocle and the expressiveness of his hands. Widely-read, he has a range of information that verges on the encyclopedic. Decisively he scorns superficiality and deplores studying that only skims the surface. Mr. So- botka is consistent in his beliefs, a well-known architect and interior dec- orator, he was a pioneer in designing modern furniture. l-lighly intelligent and individualistic, Mr. Walter So- botka is a colorful part of our Pitt scene, a fervid exponent of good taste in art and architecture. .

Vogun, Miss Myrle I. Eukin Dr. R. I Luke THE GENERAL ALUMNI to keep interest alive and constantly ASSOCIATION The General Alumni Association is the link between today and tomorrow at our university. Today we are stu- dents on the campusg tomorrow We are graduates looking back to our Alma Mater. Our love and loyalty to Pitt remain. Vtfe have joined the Alumni family. We are still one of that great family of Pitt students which began in i787 and continues today. But it would be easy to forget, and easy to be forgot- ten, Were there not our organization Homecoming Luncheon remind us of our friends of yesterday: to make us proud of the noted mem- bers of our family when society chooses to honor themp to keep us in- formed of the progress of our Alma Mater and of the events that are hap- pening today. To the General Alumni Association we pay our dues and become active members. If We live far distant, the Alumni Review, publication of this Association, keeps us informed of what is going on among Alumni and at the University. If We live in the vicinity of a Pitt Club, that Club keeps us alive to our duties to the Pitt family. If We are fortunate enough to be near the University, We may actually take part in University activities and in the special Alumni activities. What has the Alumni Association been doing during these war years? First of all, because of the tremendous demands on the individual, our pro- gram has been curtailed to suit the times. To communicate with all would be Dr. David E. Vegan, President impossible, but special efforts have been made to send the Review to all army camps at home, and where it is possible to individuals abroad. The appreciative letters we have received from many prove that our efforts have not been in vain. This year a Homecoming Luncheon was arranged at Hotel Schenley, pre- ceding the Pitt-Notre Dame game. Perhaps the most talked-of event is the Annual Children's Christmas party held for the children of faculty, and alumni, especially for children of those in the service. The afternoon of De- cember l6, an expectant crowd of little children and adults alike was soothed by the Children's Chorus of the Greenfield School, fascinated by the art of a magician, charmed by a jovial Santa, who gave each child a book with his own name printed on a bookplate with a sketch of the Com- mons Room. Another affair which has become an annual custom is the delightful Dinner-Bridge held at the College Club. Here busy, tired business men and women enjoy a friendly evening, renewing friendships with those whom they may seldom see, and meeting newcomers to the family group, thus it is that past and present meet. The year would not be complete without an anniversary. Charter Day comes in February. Then alumni re- turn to the campus to spend an hour in worship at the beautiful Heinz Chapel, and hear the University chap- lain. Much we would like to do has been left undone in these busy days when our first thought must be for our country's welfare, but in the peaceful tomorrow, who knows what dreams may be dreamed, or what plans may be accomplished?

Exam week crowds the library Locker room neighbors f11'7l f1181 There are little things, things and people near and dear to us, without them, none of our yearly whirl of col- lege life would be possible. Doc Fer- guson, our prof "Fergie," never fails to walk through the Tuck Shops with his daily newspaper at lunch hour. At his expense we have our first look at the headlines. The elevator men wink at us and cluck when we com-- plain about exams to them. Down in Panther Hollow we have our hot dog roasts and fellows put their arms around their girls when the night chills, and the embers of the fire bathe the circle of faces with orange flames. Even our Cwen box, and our informa- tion room represent intimate traditions. We leave notes, crazy notes and im- portant notes, in the box, and we They call these "Smokers", but who has cigcx eites Meetcha under the clock corner classmates in the hall when we never find a note for ourselves-every- one wants a letter. But invariably, we all trek to the lnformation Room, upper classmen as well as freshmen, for other things besides a note. l-lere we find Bill Daufenbach who knows our Pitt so well. He and the assistants to the Dean of Women have details at their fingertips enabling us to call a professor, or find out when certain classes are scheduled. Then there's the King Eddie, the G. B., and Yohe's where we go after school or in the evening. ' The locker rooms on the ground floor of the Cathedral . . . Room l, where we trip on the gnarled floor .... Room 3 across the hall, where we stand in the doorway and laugh at Locker Room l'ers 'cause we did that last year, too. The library loan desk, the flashing of orange-yellow num- bers on the screen, the thud of incom- ing books sliding down the desk slot. Ann, our telephone operator. "She's the laughingest person," we always say as she reminds us to stop in her little third floor buzz nest of activity, just to say hello. And while we're in the third floor neighborhood there's Professor Peterson. ln the university guide, Pete is labeled as an English professor. ln our hearts, he's a "right" guy, a wonderful man, a prof who knows his stuff and who makes us like to know it, too. Qur Wednesday noon dances, an innovation this year, found their place with us immediately. Soon, they'll be as much a part of our Pitt way as the candy man on the corner of "Up Hill," Father Pitt Silent Night, Holy Night right near State Hall with his box of Clark bars and Klondikes. lt's the same with the coke machine on the ground floor of State Hall. If the machine's broken, we huddle around it and everyone wants to give it a good bang because "l just hafta have my coke! " And the plague up in Thaw Hall where the grades are posted, and the pep rallies down in Stephen Pos- ter Memorial-all these belong to us in a personal and intimate way. Pitt wouldn't be Pitt without them. Cn the ground floor of the Cathedral, we have our post officefthat familar little wooden box where we chuck our V-mails on the way to class! And the book-store, jammed to the doors right after registration with book buyers, and then guiet and cozy a few weeks later, so that we can even see the counters from the hall-way. ln the Tuck Shops around the corner from the store, there's Nancy who tells us to quit playing bridge, refuses to let f1191 51201 Mentor-group sisters a student buy more than one pack of cigarettes, but says all this in such a nice way, we don't mind it at all. Then, there's the sleeping room on the 28th floor where Pitt women can rest during the day-after a big date the night before. Cn the second floor, we have both men and women's memories-the Pan-hel and ll? sing, between classes. And there's always Lilly Court, our special meeting place. ln spring, when the apple blossoms burst into pink puffs, couples stand on the Court, holding hands and looking at the streamline street cars buzzing by on Forbes Street. Our Sunset Luncheon, traditionally held for the women graduates of the University, takes place before every commencement. There's something of a bit of sadness as well as joy in this ceremony, for the co-eds realize they're leaving their home of four years, and each of them will soon be going her Senior Mentors Comes Hell Week separate way. But they have their memories-the Pan l-lel and lF sing, Freshman Council, "way," way back when they were still asking for direc- tions to the Tuck Shops, frat dances and the guestion "Who got pinned last week-end?", the excitement of CDK initiation, and the cooling dark- ness of l-leinz Chapel during the serv- ices. lt's a great university-Pitt. Although we all must leave eventually, we have the consolation that there'will always be men and women who will carry on the traditions, who will love Pitt as we, who will know there will be others after them, and still others .... lt's a colorful panorama, our way of life, and it has a funny way of grow- Guild Advisors 42335 , X' w Fraiernity women eniertain freshmen Who could ask for anyihing more? W 'ff-ad' I121j L122j ing on you. lt starts in September, with the bewildering maze of registra- tion tables crowding the Commons Room. Freshman Week is a whirl of psychological exams, Chancellor's as- sembly, vesper services in the Chapel. Theres the excitemnt oi Freshman Camp and then the big banquet for Parents and profs get together the boys, while the girls flash forth in green armbands and are guests at the High Tea. All over campus senior mentors stop you and say proudly, "l'd like you to meet my girls." Autumn at Pitt is all this, and more. lt's the gladness of the first day of classes and seeing everyone again, it's dance Chancellor Bowman green parents of freshmen All tor the sake oi science posters on the bulletin boards and snacks in the Tuck Shops and "Meet you under the clock"g and it's a kaleid- oscope of ribboned Customs badges and bright-covered Cwen directories and hard-earned blue-and-gold arm- bands. There's all the mysterious hustling of men's rushing, and the beauty of Lantern Night when the flames light up earnest eyes and push mammoth flickering shadows into the highest arches of the Commons Room. We have our own special football ways, too-we trudge up to the Sta- Romance on Lilly Court dium and shout the "Alleghenee" as we applaud the intricacies of the band formations and laugh at the Panthers pixy tricks. We go to Heinz Chapel for Caritas and later for the Thanks- giving service and sometimes at noon just to hear Mr. Lotz play the organ and to watch the sunlight slanting through the windows and throwing patches of red and blue and green against the columns. At the Panhel- lenic Reception the girls put on long Pitt students hear President Truman's Inaugural address l123fI L1241 Custom Brunch skirts dresses, very swish, and then at the Customs Brunch they roar at zany skits and consume incredible numbers of hot dogs. December brings more warmth to the Commons Room, we sit in front of the fireplaces and smell the burning pine logs and drink tea, we gather 'round the piano on Friday afternoons and sing, and we love the way it looks at the Chancellor's Re- ception, with the shifting patterns of the crowds against the crimson velvet drapery and the shadowy stone walls. Our Pitt December means, too, the Senior Supper, the smell of formalde- hyde from the biology labs penetrat- ing the elevator shafts, and the serv- icemen's edition of the News, and Vade Mecums crammed with remind- ers of luncheon dates, committee meet- ings, and exams. And, above all, it means our own special Christmas spirit that starts when we first see the spicy fir trees and the huge holly The freshmen are impressed wreaths in the Commons Room. The organ fills the Cathedral with the mel- odies of the carols, and the last day of class brings our favorite party, com- plete with a padded, whiskered Santa Claus whose pack holds gifts and striped peppermint canes for every- one. After vacation, exam week looms up-and the Cathedral is subdued into a world of crowded libraries and sleepy-eyed students. We frantically whip up term papers and complain of writer's cramp as we stagger out of two-hour exam sessions. A week of sleep and rather strenuous relaxation, and we're ready to start all over again. Our February calendar is made up of Pitt Players productions and Charter Day and women's rush- ing, with the suspense of silence period followed by a flutter of pledge ribbons. We file over to Poster Me- morial to honor our outstanding class- mates whose names are inscribed in Mr. Connelly. Buildings cmd Grounds The Biq G. I.

We show guests through We know you, Pete our Nationality Rooms and assure them that we really have classes here and proudly agree with them, yes, they are wonderful.

We stroll down ODK walk, pausing to read the names carved in the flagstones, and dreaming a little as we count the spaces still unfilled.

SENIOR QUEEN NOMINEES Twenty years ago in a ceremony similar to that of a ninth century English cor-- onation, the first Senior Queen oi the University oi Pittsburgh was crowned. Since then, each year Pitt Senior Women pay tribute to their elected Senior Queen and Alma Mater, chosen from senior nominees. Pitt's Senior Queen, the highest honor a senior girl may receive, has a royal reign oi one year. Possessing ideals of fine Womanhood, outstanding character, personality, and beauty, participating in extra-curricular activities, maintaining high academic standing, she is a girl who has gven unseliish service to the University. Each of the nominees is a senior girl who has been chosen by her class- mates because she possessed these gualities. Each oi them represents our ideal of what a woman graduate oi the University should be. But to one oi them be- longs the honor oi being the Senior Queen, to the second highest, Alma Mater, chief attendant to the gueen.

Q ?.gQ MILITARY PROGRAM AT PITT Midyear-1945-one company of the Army Specialized Training Program remains at Pitt. These soldiers are the medical students, and they alone are left of the thousands of men who were the army students at the University. Usually any curtailment of a program is edged with sadness, and true, we miss the army in full force about the walls, in the streets, and in and out of the classrooms. For three years, the A.S.T.P. and the Army Air Corps have been an integral part of the life of every student at Pitt. We trudged up to State Hall for classes because the army needed the space in the Cathe- dral, we found faculty and student organization offices stuck in buried places because the army moved in. VV' hole floors in the Cathedral became forbidden ground-these the quarters for the soldiers and the military offices. Socially, each of us remembered the army and thought and planned for all our activities in terms of the army, but the army at Pitt literally marched away. Thinking-really feeling-our way back to l942-43, we remember the first to come were the army air corps. Boisterous, immature kids with basic training in the "Hargrove" manner just behind them, the cadets studied -struggled with themes, math, science and history. As Pitt experienced her fifth war year, no one in this vicinity of Cakland can forget the singing sol- diers marching through the streets. And then in May and june of 1944, company after company was put on alert and shipped from the University. As suddenly as the air corps invaded Pitt and took over the buildings and our hearts did they leave. They had come to us for training to do the job the nation had put before them, they left having been made more than fit for that task. f1501 The air corps had barely been settled when the first company of the Army Specialized Training Program arrived at the University. Originally, there were eight companies of the AST's occupying six floors of the Cathedral. Their classifications were: Company A, advanced engineers and pre-medical, Company B, dental, Com- pany C, medical, Company D, Pitt men returned, Companies E, F, and G, engineers, Company l-l, foreign languages. Company D interests us because the men left Pitt for a week to go to induction centers and were sent right home to Pitt again as part of the army program. No schedule was interrupted, the only difference was that the boys were put into uni- form. Working and living with us, the A.S.T.P. feuded with the air corps and fitted themselves into our scheme of things. They were an older group, the majority of them had some pre- vious college training. The men en- tangled themselves in our lives, and just as we were taking them for granted, company after company marched away. With the exception of the few in the Navy V-12 and Civil Officers' Training Program, the air corps and A.S.T.P. completed the military ranks at Pitt. True, even before military training became an extreme national neces- sity, the R.C.T.C. was making men ready to hold reserve commissions in the army. After war was declared and the military program was intro- duced at Pitt, the R.C.T.C. continued to function as a program for pre-induc- tion. The men were given classes in general military information such as discipline, and they had an edge on anyone who had received no military training. As it has done with every activity, Pitt wanted a way to acknowledge the-superiority of some of the men in military drill and to give more oppor- tunity for training in military leader- ship. And so in l932, Pitt Rifles, honor- ary fraternity for basic corpsmen, was organized. They met twice a week to carry out their two-part program: drill- ing when the weather permitted, other- wise, studying from the manual or military battle films. The result of the drilling showed last year when Pitt R.O.T.C. Rifle team took Georgia Tech, Texas A CS M and other foes in shoot- ing tilts. This year, Pitt Rifles was com- posed of only fifteen members. ln complete charge of the military program as well as one of the favorite R.O.T.C. professors is Major Merlin Wills. During the five years Major W' ills has spent at Pitt, he has become a student favorite because of his un- assuming friendliness and eagerness to cooperate anytime his office can oblige. Major Wills and his staff are a real part of the reason for the suc- cess of the military program at the university. We have with us again M! Sgt. james T. Doherty, Sgt. Thomas j. Riedl, jr., and Sgt. Watts l. Shablowski. Writ- ing the records of these men is like writing the record of the war. lim Doherty, for instance, served overseas 28W months, he was a mem- ber of the Military Mission to Russia and to lran, and he saw service in South Africa, Arabia, Egypt, Syria, Iraq, lran, lndia, Burma, and Russia. And so with Tom Riedl, a Pittsburgh man who went to Central Catholic, and saw service in England, North Africa, Sicily, and ltaly during the twenty-four months he was overseas. Watt Shablowski, with the famous "Eifhting First infantry Division" for eighteen months, was in Scotland, England, North Africa, and Sicily. These boys all wear ribbons-some of the decorations that demand ban- ner headlines. Tom Riedl saw Cassino destroyed, and he was wounded at that famous Benedictine Monastery that he had read about in Central Catholic. Watts was wounded in Sicily. And so the story goes. The men come here to learn to fight and to lead the fighting in a war which must guarantee the right of each of them to come to the University in the era of peace. The subjects are taught, the men study and drill and then move on to fields of combat. Each does his job, and once again some of them come back to Pitt to learn to live in a world without war. Pitt at war, Pitt at peace! May the men who trained here take away memories that are kind.

Direcior of Athletics Fran Mattioli I ohn Kosh George Ranii Do Matthe FOOTBALL Por four war years the men of our Uni- versity have been playing a far more serious game than any that they faced at Pitt. And the record these men are making in the armed forces is answer enough to those who condemned big- time collegiate sport these many years. We have had our ups and downs, our victory headlines, our buried, space- filler story on the pages of the sports' sections of the nation. For a long while it was Goldberg and Thurbon and big time, we grew smug, confident-we built the stadium and Saturday after Saturday, we filled it with football fans. Basketball, baseball, tennis, swimming -Pitt, the unconguerable. And then, for many reasons, sports became de- emphasized, the banner headlines be- came smaller and smaller as Pitt met top teams and stumbled under their power. Even before December l94l, the University proved to be fallible: Pitt could and had been beaten. And because the world outside of Pitt looks at the outcome from the score- board, they believed we were fighting a losing battle. The Big Ten watched for us to join the Purity League, waited for us to give up. But there was some- thing that the outside world could not be expected to know about -that something was the Pitt determination to fight. We had many excuses to give, but war year after war year, Pitt began each fall with a suicide pro- gram in athletics. Men left the campus in groups, freshmen played key posi- tions on the football team. True, we lost more games than we won, but we played hard, clean games-games de- dicated to each of you who are away, FOOTBALL TEAM, lst Row. D. Newman, R. Molta, S. Consentino. T. Kalmanir, S.

With this history of tri- umph and defeat, we look at the past year. The worst is past, Pitt is now on the up-grade. Men are returning to Pitt ln all fields, We scored this year, and looking forward, We once again can see the banner headlines. Despite the rumors which had Clark Shaughnessy leaving Pitt to coach pro football, he Was back to coach the 1944 Blue and Gold Panth- ers. Adding Dr. Danny Fortmann to his coaching staff, Shaughnessy and his assistants began Work in late summer to mold a team. Doc Hartwig, a Pitt All- American in l934, took over at his old post as end coach, While the other vet-- eran on the staff, Stan Clenn, instruct- ed the guards and tackles. The back- field was under the tutelage of the mas- ter of the T and Dr. Danny Portmann, Tommy Kulminir Notre Dame former Colgate and Chicago Bear pro- fessional football player. The Panthers opened on Septem- ber 23 against West Virginia Univer- sity at the stadium. This was more or less a warmup for the next week's as- signment against Notre Dame, and the Panthers defeated their "cousins" 26- l3. Operating efficiently from Shaugh- nessy's famed T formation, the Panth- ers, a freshmen-dominated team bul- warked by a handful of veterans, made 19 first downs to 5 for West Vir- ginia. The Iungle Cats had the 6,000 fans on their feet time and time again as they unveiled a passing and run- ning attack which brought back fond memories of the Sutherland Scythe. Paul Richards filled the air with spot passes which were grabbed by glue- fingered Pitt ends and fast moving backs. The Panthers broke into the scoring column late in the first quarter when George Ranii recovered a West Virginia fumble on the Pitt 25. The Pan- thers drive was climaxed when Tom Kalmanir plunged across from the IA yard line. ln the second half the Pan- ther machine really started to roll. The Pitt men scored on a sustained 48 yard drive down field and then again when Tom Kalrnanir crossed the goal for his second score of the afternoon after a 02 yard drive. Pitt added its final touch- down on a 77 yard march with Preese scoring, making it a perfect debut for Clark Shaughnessy in his second year at Pitt. lt was a perfect day for football. The grass seemed to shimmer on the sun-baked gridiron. Fifty thousand howling fans poured into the stadium. Notre Dame had corne to town! But this year the story would be different, for although the Irish were odds-on- favorites, there was an awful lot of Panther sentiment to be found around town. But despite the build-up, the re- sult was a one sided win for the sons of South Bend. Notre Dame struck with speed and power as they smothered the Panthers under a barrage of aer- ials and a varied running attack, 58-0. The Irish, slow in getting their offense rolling, completely disintegrated the Panther defenses as they rolled up 39 points in the second half. The big noise for Ed McKeever's men was Bobby Kelly, who performed brilliantly as he personally chalked up 26 points before leaving the game early in the third quarter. Outstanding for the Panthers was the defensive play of Guard Fran Mattioli and Pullback lack ltzel. The sterling play of the burly guard began to attract possible early season All- American mention. Bethany The Panthers, bouncing back from a 58-0 trouncing by Notre Dame, shov- ed over touchdowns in every guarter to trample little Bethany college of West Virginia 50-13. Only 1,500 fans, perhaps the smallest crowd in Pitt foot- ball history, witnessed the game. Pleet- footed Tommy Kalrnanir sparked the Panthers with three touchdowns. loe Mocha, tiny quarterback star of last year's Pitt team who is now a V-l2 stu- dent at Bethany, starred for the visi- tors. The Panthers won the game eas- ily but paid heavily for this victory when they lost the services of Pran Mattioli for the remainder of the season because of a back injury. As expected, the Panthers, when they traveled up to the Plains of 'W' est Point, were no match for the Army who racked up 69 points to Pitt's 7. Carl Blaik's Cadets played the role of the nation's number one footfall team to Army Illinois perfection. And the Shaughnessy men got a look at perhaps the best backs in the country as Doc Blanchard, Glen Davis, Doug Kenna, Dale l-fall, Bob Dobbs, and Max Minor whizzed by them or ran roughshod over them. Pitt's youthful squad averted a com- plete rout by scoring on a one yard plunge by Gene Gaugler one minute and sixteen seconds before the final gun sounded. The aerial onslaught that was led by sharp-shooting Paul Bichards netted the Panthers 220 yards and set up their only tally. Clark Shaughnessy, despite the overwhelm- ing defeat, still had hopes of pulling some surprise upsets out of the bag. A defense was mapped out to stop llli- nois the following week. So lllinois came to town but the surprise upset was lost somewhere in the touchdown parade. The speedy football team, sparked by a "Stop Watch Backfield" that specialized in long runs, humiliated the once power- Louis Yakopec Chatham Field ful Pitt team with its score, 39-5, before 7,000 discouraged fans that dotted the empty stadium. Living up to their pre- game reputation, Coach Bay Eliot's Campaign Speedsters scored in every period as they held the hapless Pan- thers to a first period field goal and a third quarter safety. Backs Paul Patter- son, Don Greenwood, and the "Flying Flea," Buddy Young, spelled defeat for Pitt as they scored five touchdowns, three on runs of 80, 62 and 92 yards, while Don lohnson accounted for the sixth score. After Pitt had taken the early 3-0 lead on Mike Boussos' 16 yard first period field goal, Greenwood exploded an 81 yard touchdown run on the following kickoff and started the lllini fireworks. For the first seven minutes of the game it looked good for the Panthers, but after the first period drive, climaxed by the successful field goal try, the Shaughnessy-men went to pieces as they fumbled time and again. With two successive defeats al- ready chalked up against them, the Panthers were out for revenge and the Chatham Field Pliers were their prey. The Pliers were a group of air corps men who had seen foreign service and liked to play football. Tarzan White, a former All-American, was drafted as player-coach and organized a team. The Pliers flew here from Georgia in B-24's for their encounter on the Sta- dium turf. Pitt entered the game as a heavy favorite and as the gun sound- ed to end the half the score was dead- locked U-U. The Iungle Cats received the breaks and lohnny Lozar, Pitt full- back, became the hero of the game when he broke away for a touchdown and put the Panthers ahead 6-O. Before the game ended the Panthers rolled up 20 more points, walking off with a hard-earned 26-U win. The schedule maker was kind to the Panthers and gave them a week of rest before they tangled with the number one civilian team of the coun- try-Ohio State! "ln Old Ohio's there's a team that's known throughout the land." And how, brother, and how! lust ask any bruised and battered Pan- ther and he'll tell you that they're not just a team but a championship outfit -Big Ten rating to be exact. The Ohio State football powerhouse need- ed the services of its regulars, for less than one quarter as it walloped the Panthers 54-l9. The pitiful Pittmen didn't have a look-in until Coach Car- rol Widdows began sweeping the bench clean of substitutes. ln the first half, the Buckeyes rolled up a 4l-O lead. The Panthers finally came to life in the second half when they outscor-- Ohio State ed the Buckeye's second stringers l9- l3. With Paul Richards tossing passes from every corner of the lot, Zimmovan and Sarles went over for two scores while the third was set up for George Preese's plunge. Pitt's second halt showing atoned somewhat for its lack- adaisical performance that marked the first two quarters. The Panthers, following the sage advice of Horace Greely, went west to take on the University of lndiana where Bo McMillan's Po Little Boys made the clawless Panthers dance to the tune of 47-U. lt was the last home game of the year for the Hoosiers and they celebrated it by whitewashing Pitt. Shaughnessy's men never were in the ball game as the rubbery right arm of "l-lunchy" I-loernschmeyer, the Western Conferences leading passer, hurled three touchdown passes and chalked up seven completions for a to- Indiana .1memnm:snnms.1mwssm-a fL sJmsumu0ww as swwwinsmw. xmuwmmnnmm P - - .. 11601 And the Lion Takes cx Beating. Too tal of l44 yards gained. However, it was far from a one man show as Dick Deranek, Bacehorse l-lalfback, also scored twice, once on a beautiful 46 yard run. The boys from Bloomington scored twice in every period except the last, when they tallied but once. The only offensive threat and bright spot in the day was the passing of Paul Richards who completed l3 for l67 yards. Pitt bade farewell to the 1944 sea- son and no tears were shed in the part- ing as they handed Penn State a l4-O shaving. lt looked like the good old days had returned to the stadium atop the hill. Blue and gold and blue and white banners waved amidst the fans, bottles were passed down the rows, and the Pitt band filled the air with music while the members lined the gridiron with numerous formations. The Penn State Lion wrestled with the Panther on the soggy track as the cheerleaders raised the crowd's spirits. Entering the game as underdogs, the Panthers went to work in business-like fashion, threatening twice in the first period, staving off two State threats in the second and then putting the game on ice in the third. The gun to start the second half had just sounded and a booming kick landed on the Pitt 7 yard line. Bernie Sniscak picked up the pig- skin and started down field, he gath- ered blockers, dodged Lion tacklers, and then raced through the remaining Nittany team to pay-dirt. lt was the turning point of the game and the most brilliant Pitt run of the year. ln its eagerness to win, Pitt was penalized a substantial 132 yards. The Panthers scored again in the third period but it proved anticlimatic as Gaugler cross- ed the goal two plays after Braner in- tercepted Petchel's pass on State's 46 and ran to the l5. That was it-another football sea- son ended. And suddenly all attention turned to basketball, and our cagemen began to erase the football defeats.

Carlson's slogan "Win 'em All" might have come true. Dr. Carlson coined this phrase soon after he became the Pitt basketball mentor 23 years ago and once in his long career has it come true. This year, he again had hopes of an unmarred season but after the fifth contest it was "Wait 'till next year." The Panthers floored a very strong aggregation with such names as Tay Malarkey, Nate Apple and Hank Zele ler, all veteran and experienced play- ers found in the starting line up. Cther members who added great strength to the squad were Dodo Canterna, Prank Morris, Phil Marder, Carl Michalik and Morris Iacobsen. The Blue and Gold opened their twelve game, abbreviat- ed, season against a Weak Allegheny College in Meadville on December 15. The boys gave Dr. Carlson an early Christmas present as they handed the Gators a 61-Sl shellacking. Prank Mor-- ris, a plebe from Avalon, played a mas- terful game at one of the guard posts only to be surpassed in performance by Captain Tay Malarkey. The fans at Meadville had a chance to see the whole Pitt team as Dr. Carlson yanked his starters and flooded the floor with substitutes. fit-531 l1641 The jungle Cats had a holiday vacation and they didn't get back into the swing of things until january 3 when they met Geneva on the Pavil- ion floor. The Panthers were the un- derdogs in their home encounter but that mattered little to the hosts as they beat the Coventers 49-45. Pitt's actual strength was unknown, for it couldn't be judged by the performance against an inexperienced Allegheny team, yet the fans were beginning to wonder if Pitt had been over-estimated when Geneva led 24-20 at the half. The sec- ond half painted a different picture. ln the third quarter Pitt outscored the Coventers 20-ll and from then until the gun shot, the Skyscraper Quintet stayed ahead. As usual, Tay Malarkey and Nate Apple played their brilliant game, but a new name, that of Phil Marder, was added to possible Pitt hopefuls. Riding along on two victories, the ball players, christened the Phantoms by the good doctor, boarded a trolley one week later to play their ancient rival, Carnegie Tech. Pitt jumped off to an early lead, scoring 20 points be- fore the Tartans sunk a field goal. Freshman Dodo Canterna led the at- tack in the first half as he sank l2 of his l8 points to lead in the evening's scoring. lf Dr. H. C. Carlson had want- ed, he could have made the margin of victory much more than the 59-45, but he kept changing the line-up, trying to find the best combination to face Penn State on Saturday. Zero hour arrived and the battle began, Coach john Lawther's zone de- sense faced Dr. Carlson's man-to-man fast game of ball. Pitt couldn't be beat that night, they were out to avenge last year's double set-back and they did. The Panthers piled up a 58-4l decision over the Staters. Pitt broke into the lead within the first minute of play and fail- ed to lose it, even though the Staters tied it up twice. Pitt unleashed a de- vastating attack in the final period, which brought the fans to their feet. Carnegie Tech Little Sam Consentino of Avalon, the star of the game, bucketed three long shots and a couple of fouls to put Pitt far in front. Others who showed great offensive power were Hank Zeller, big center and high scorer for the Panthers with l4 points, and behind him with l2 points each were Malarkey, Consen- tino and Canterna. All good things must come to an end and so it did. Pitt received its first trouncing from Westminster at Farrell 58-47. The Panthers were right in the ball game the first quarter and the early part of the second as they match- ed the Towering Titans point for point but it didn't last long. Pitt went into a tainspin when Malarkey's bad knee was injured again and the first mark in the loss column was registered. The Phantoms started the second half of their round robin schedule against Carnegie Tech at the Stadium. Dr. H. C. Carlson's Pitt basketeers had just one man too many for their back- yard rivals, this being six feet four Hank Zeller. Hank played a brilliant back board game, passed accurately and had his share of tip ins as he rolled up l9 points. Maxie Hannum's boys got off to an early 2 point lead which was soon erased by an erratic Pitt team which didn't intend to be upset. The Panthers put on the pressure and led by ll points at the half and ended up on the long end of 67-4l final score. 51661 Penn State Again as in their first meeting, Dr. Carlson sent in a flood of substitutes in the final period. The second half of the schedule is the hardest and it took but three weeks to find that out. The Panthers started off the new semester with their second win over Geneva on February 2. The Pitt jinx over the Coventers was kept alive as they handed them a 55-5l trimming. The game with the Beaver Fallers was one of those games that gives coaches grey hair and heart trouble. The game was a nip and tuck affair throughout with the winner decided in the last minute and a half of play. The first half ended with the score tied 27 all and with minutes remaining in the fourth period Pitt forged ahead with a field goal to lead 53-5l. Then Dodo Canterna stepped up to the foul line and whipped through the net to give him 25 points and Pitt victory. The game which all eagerly await- ed for was next on the schedule and Pitt hoped to be the team to break Army's string of 24 consecutive wins. Cn the afternoon of February 7th the Panthers met the Cadets in the Field House and the soldiers stretched their string to 25 straight wins. Pitt started off fast and held a lead in the first Army twelve minutes of play only to lose it as Army tied at l9. Dr. Carlson sur- prised the basketball gentry by spring-- ing a zone defense which broke up the Cadet's lightning passes for a spell. But the West Pointers wore Pitt to a frazzle, sweeping to a 33-25 halftime lead and ringing up an eight-point cluster early in the second half to make a runaway of the match. The gleeful rooting corps of Cadets enjoy- ed it when the colorful Carlson, made famous by Look and Esquire. hop-- ped up to take umbridge with the offi- cials once or twice. When Ed Kelleher, Army mentor, followed suit at one stage, Carlson cooled down his oppon- ent by waving a towel. Despite the 7l- 5l beating the Cadets handed Pitt, for the first time this year Army started its varsity. After this sound beating the Panth- ers were given a week to recuperate before they met the Westminster Tit- ans. The fans witnessed a one man performance in the last three periods, as Dodo Canterna swished the net for 37 points to make a new college scor- ing record in Pittsburgh. ln his remark- able performance Dodo rolled in l3 field goals and ll free throws for the 37, but what made the performance all the more remarkable was the fact that Dodo went scoreless in the first guarter and missed eight charity tosses. Two entirely new teams ended the game since every starter but Noble lorgensen on the Titan sguad got the thumb in the second half for making a quintet of miscues. Pitt lost two men, Morris lacobsen and Hank Zeller as the referee called 76 fouls, 21 more than was called in the first Pitt-Tech contest. These numerous fouls had much to do with the 75-56 final score. Already with one victory over Penn State, Pitt eagerly eyed victory number two and a possible bid to ap- pear in the Golden Tournaments in New York, but a 53-36 loss helped change their mind. The Panthers dis- played their worst basketball form of the season in Nittany territory. State intercepted Pitt passes on all parts of the hardwood, Panthers kicked the ball as they dribbled, and in desperation, shot wildly. State led ll-l near the end of the first quarter and the closest Pitt came to tying the score was lil-ll in the second period as Hank Zeller gain- ed control of the banking boards and scored 20 points. Tay Malarkey de- serves special mention, too, for playing with a badly injured knee. l-le gamely fought through two-thirds of the game Ymore than he had played since be- ing injured in the first Westminster game at Farrell. Two games remained on the schedule-both with West Virginia. lf the Panthers win both, they gain the mythical district crown but splitting gives Westminster the honor and that's just what happened. Pitt played the first game on the Stadium floor and walked off with an easy 55-34 victory. The Panthers broke the Mountain Men's zone defense wide open in the second half and racked up 23 points to the opposition's 3. ln Mountaineer ter- ritory it was an entirely different pic- ture. West Virginia played all around head-up ball while the Panthers plug- ged away trying to keep the game close. Pitt succeeded and in the final period tied the game three times before being nosed out 56-47. That ended the most successful season in years and an undefeated one at home for the Pitt guintet.

BASEBALL "Win 'em All!" may be the slogan for Coach Carlson and his basketball team, but Coach Mitterling only pleads, "Win one!" to the much de- feated nine playing baseball. With confidence that the leads could be changed this year in the Pitt News, coach and team began the season, but lefty Hank Eisenhant of luniata thought differently when he pitched his way to an 8-7 victory in the open- ing game. Coach Mitterling started a freshman hurler, George Goldberg, who had to be relieved before 2 inn- ings had passed. Finishing the last 7 innings was Big lim Reber who yielded but one hit. Reber, through his excellent re- lief performance earned the starting role against Bucknell on the Lewis- burg field. Everything happened that day. Pitt faced an old team mate on the mound, lack Kelly, a Navy trainee, stationed at the university. Kelly bested three Panther hurlers as Reber was pounded from the mound in the sixth inning after yielding 9 runs. Star- ring for the Panthers in their lO-8 loss was second baseman, "Red" Mat- thews, who was robbed of the possible fourth on a beautiful stop by the third sacker. Army was number 3 on the schedule and also loss number 3. The West Pointers sent the Pitt team away from the Plains with an 18-8 setback, their worst defeat of the season. Dick Kin- ney, Army hurler, held the Panthers to 8 safeties in the first 6 innings before being shelled from the mound with a 4 hit barrage and 6 runs. lohn Lozar, Pitt hurler, gave up l4 hits in 9 innings. Old lupiter Pluvis cancelled the return game with Buckness, but on May 8th, the Panthers lifted anchor and went up to Annapolis. The Middies were held hitless by Goldberg for 5 innings but in the sixth the offensive was opened. Goldberg was sent to the showers by an 8 run burst and Pierce lim Reber George Goldberg Chuck Biehl Iohn Lozcu' Was called to the rescue. The game ended Navy lO-Pitt 5. The Panthers were on the road again and hosts for the day were the luniata Indians. The lndians handed the Iungle Cats a 4-2 setback. loe Kielb, Pitt back-stop, put Pitt into the ball game by slamming out a home run which was one of the longest drives ever seen in the lndian park. Penn State supplied the opposition for the final two contests. The Lions blasted out a 16-6 victory in Nittany territory and in the stadium the Staters Won 2-l 7 and there Went our last hope -Well, at least that season. f169j f1701 , Phi Ep's cop grid crown IN TERFRATERNITY SPORTS There has been an equal distribu- tion of first places among the various fraternities. Qnly the PiKA'S have been able to capture two crowns, those in swimming and in mushball. ln both these contests the PiKA's won easily as they seemed to have talent in ex- cess. Their excellent swimmer, lohn Dikeman, had no competition as he easily won the backstroke, the breast- stroke, and the free style races. The mushball season took on an entirely different aspect. With the Phi Gams and the Pi Lams offering tough com-- petition, the PiKA's didn't win the title until their last game. Mr. Tommy Kalmanir and com- pany took the interfraternity track meet. With Kalminir winning the lOO yard dash, the 220, and the high jump, the Phi Delts managed to overcome the Phi Gams and the PiKA's who were tied for second. The Pi Lams, proving that practice makes perfect, overcame a host of opponents to become the ping pong champions. With Nate Apple as number one man on their four man squad, the Pi Lams proved to all why they were the heavy favorites in pre- season ratings. Following this in stride, the Phi Eps won the football champion- ship with an amazing l8 to U conquest over the PiKA's. Qutstanding in the football league were Wood and Gal- lagher of the PiKA's, Beihl and Thom- son of the Delts, Lampl and Weissman of the Phi Eps, and l-lumes of the Phi Delts. INTRAMURAL SPORTS The Pitt YMCA took it upon its shoulders to organize and carry out an intramural program at Skyscraper University. Mr. Miller, secretary of the Pitt Y, put the burden on lohn Pager and Morton Lerner to divide the boys into teams and arrange a schedule. Every Thursday night in the Cathedral Gym marked the time and place of the basketball and ping pong games, Whereas the mushball team used Tree's Field for their diamond and the Y lounge served as the meeting place for the Chess Club. Leading the basketeers into battle were Bill Boyd of the Boyd Blitzes, F os- ter l-ladges captaining the Mustangs, Zola Gold of the Golden Panthers, and Mel Snitzer heading the Flashes. The Golden Panthers proved too much for the remaining flock and easily Walked away with the crown. Prom these four competing teams an all star cast was chosen which challenged any frater- nity on Pitt campus. The Y men came out with an unblemished record. lohn Biddle took it upon himself to run off a ping pong tournament With all interested. A group of fifteen com- peted in this round robin affair and many a hot match were played. After all had cooled down and the final match completed, the Winner was Bert Lipsum. Por the first time in University his- tory a Chess Club was formed which urged all those who played chess to join. Bob Garbe Was elected president of the group and held regular meet- ings each Thursday, at which time the games were played. Mushball marked the end of Pitt's l944-45 intramural program with Tom Gorman taking over as skipper and arranging the schedule. At the pres- ent the team is getting in its practice sessions and Won't get started in actual competition until May. Pitt Y notches another victory f171l ga ,f K-, t""'a 1,3 , .V ., Rumi T.

ORGANIZATIONS Yes, we the organizations of the Uni- versity have become a fixed part of college life, and no matter if we be large or small, a War-child or part of the tradition, We look to the Student Congress, to the Women's Self Gov- ernment Association, and to Men's Council for our government. The most representative of us is the Student Congress, and we owe our birth to the War. Because of the emergency, the old Student-Faculty Association was Pep Assembly Committee WMM! , , Wf, Sylvia Amdur not workable, it was replaced by the Emergency Student Government Com- mittee. ln the spring of l944, E.S.G.C. decided that a permanent system of government must be created, and the group turned to the comparatively young University Senate, administra- tive and faculty governing body, for inspiration. The Student Congress, so enthusiastically accepted by the student body in the spring elections, had a commission and a challenge Dumbarton Oaks? Senior Memorial Fund to meet, and looking backwards with a projected line toward tomorrow, We claim the challenge has been and is being met. Among the services per- Appointments Committee Scholur's Day Committee formed by student government dur- ing the War years are the reports on the Tuck Shop food and conditions, dances tor the soldiers, and student Social Committee 175 f176fI WSGA COMMISSION lst Row, Gertrude Blackwood, Betty E.

And because we are firmly convinced that life goes on beyond emergencies, that We must safeguard tomorrow by today's Wisdom, We have formed a committee to determine the legality of new student organizations. We Want every Pitt organization to fulfill a definite and specific needy We think that We owe you that-you who have commissioned us to keep and mold Pitt for you. Our purpose is: to WSGA Executive Board Helen Hadgis coordinate student government for women and for men ito a unified Whole, to initiate and carry out pro- grams of Work which promote the best interests of men and Women students in their joint relations, to create stu- dent opinion sympathetic with the University ideal, to provide a medium for the expression of that student opinion, to foster loyalty to the Uni- versity, and to enrich the opportunities for fellowship between students and members of the faculty and adminis- tration. But we, the Student Congress, can't do it all. There are many problems peculiarly men's or women's, and so we turn to Women's Self Government Association and Men's Council for help. Perhaps the busiest women about campus-busy because they are in a multi-number of organizations- are the members of W.S.Cr.A. What do you pick up each time you want to rec- ord a luncheon date, to check a Univer- sity activity or holiday, to find informa- tion about one of us? Your Verde Me- cum, of course, and Vade Mecum is a publication of the W.S.G.A. We, the governing body of Pitt women, felt that we were the hostesses to the army dur- ing the last four years, we tried to keep faith with all who had worked before us to create an atmosphere of friend- liness and security for the men away from their homes. We sponsored dances, informal get-togethers, teas about the fireplacep we tried to be companionable, helpful and imper- sonal, some of us fell in love, but mostly we waited for our Pitt men to return, prayed some other woman's association was taking care of our Medley With u Fringe on Top Senior Court men, and dug in twice as hard to make our Pitt front a happy front. Air Corps, A.S.T.'s, Navy-and yet, we had to keep our heads and nourish the old time traditions, the things that every Pitt man or woman remembers when he dreams of Pitt. We had to take care of our freshman women, to try to make up to them for coming to the University when we had our hair down and were hard at work. F resh- man Customs exams, green armbands, Lantern Night, inter-class sing-event after event must go on as usual, for if they didn't we would be breaking a trust. A Senior Queen must be crown- ed, an Owl Hall of Fame must be chosen, elections must be held. The University must not let the seriousness of today's problems make her forget to look ahead to the permanence of what we, for want of a better term, call tradition. W.S.G.A. is pragmatic, alive. We are alive mostly because we remem- ber yesterday, take care of today and prepare for tomorrow. We, Men's Council, were hardest hit during the war years, for the group we represent diminished to a vague suggestion of its former size. And yet, we are looking forward to a full mem- bership, to proportional representation from all schools to Men's Council. We intend to be a solid part of the Student Congress, to be the final authority in the administration of men in their ac- f177j l178j MEN'S COUNCIL lst Row, Richard Barnhari, Icxmes Ludwig, Robert Dixon, Herbert Scheinberq, Sidney Klein. 2nd Row, Richard McCormick, William Sonnett, Mr. Arthur, Iames Iohns, Saniord Sontaq. tivities. We have only ten selected men now but we are keeping this part of the Uni- versity alive for our brothers who were forced to go away for awhile. Gradually, as the years since l94l disappear with the appearance of new Varga calendars, we are bringing back the old way of life for Pitt men. We revived the golden Panther keys as rewards to students for the achieve- ment of a high quality point average and for the enthusiastic participation in University activities. We hold our- selves open as a body of redress for any grievance a man may haveg we show men transfers what we mean by living at Pitt. We want to be sym- bolic of a group who can face an emergency, conquer it and go ahead. W'ith your help, we'll work with W.S.G.A. to guard student life at the University for those who are coming back to us, for those who will be with us tomorrow, for those who have built all these years that we might have a firm foundation. Bob Dixon Whu1's Buzzin', Cousin? We, the engineers, want you to meet some of our top men from "up on the hill" in the Engineering and Mines Cabinet. We gave our lounge at State Hall to the soldiersg we cut fewer classes, we watched the mail for that official government envelope calling us from Pitt. None of you could have been more conscious of the war than we have been, but we are a stubborn group. We insist that each semester see an Engineers' dance, that our smokers are kept. We know that human relationships are importantg we know there will be an after-the-war as well as during-the-war, and we realize that along with mastery of the slide-rule, we must be ready for the sunrise. You seldom remem- ber us, we are the evening students who f-. are so much a part of the University, and We have formed the Evening Students' As- sociation. This year we have shown a greater interest in ac- tivities and the social side of a University education. Many of us are doing War work, some of us are teaching, some of us keep house or take shorthand dur- ing the day. But here in evening school We edit a paper, have a monthly social meeting, and even bowl with team- mates after class.

A newspaper must be the voice of the people who read the paper, and We believe we have been that for you oi the University. Although the Pitt Evening News goes to bed only a few times during the se- mester, We, the or- ganizations at Pitt, consider her a part of us. The Eve- ning News constitutes the major and sometimes the only contact be- tween the Evening school and its stu- dents, and as We Work to have the evening students become a greater part of the University as a Whole, We "Pop" Finney look to the paper for our help. Both the Pitt News and the Pitt Evening News follow the slogan in giving to us "all the news that is fit to print." The other organizations take full advantage of the publications at Pitt, and we often read about the activities of the Heinz Chapel Choir in "On Campus." Our choir people love to sing and the group is browbeaten by this love and by discipline into a mag- nificent whole by one of the country's leading directors, Mr. Theodore M. Finney. The choir practices an hour at a time four days a week under Mr. Finney's direc- tion, and although he refuses to accept ex- cuses, won't tolerate "cuts", and doesn't believe in emergen- cies, the members show their love for him with a familiar "Pop" for a nickname. ln the time be- fore gas rationing, congested railroads and "No Travel" signs, we used to Evelyn Kusserow Four to One make an annual tour, but the war put a halt to that. The tour was fun-grand fun, and we were proud to be received as representatives of Pitt in many of the leading cities of the country. But now we sing for Pittsburgh, and believe it or not, we are just as happy, just as proud, for it's family stuff now. We sing every Friday at the University Chapel serviceg on Sunday afternoon we sing at vespers. For a few minutes our music shuts out the ugliness and sadness, the humdrumness of life.

We made a record ot gay songs to send to those who are overseas. We entertained the men at Veterans' hos- pital, at the county jail, and we helped at many churches. The choir showed high school students at assembly pro- grams what they could expect of a Pitt organization. Dick Harqraves And we took time out to play, too. There was that dinner at Webster l-lall for our new members, a Christmas party, a trip between semesters-but our main social function is the informal, impromptu gatherings prompted by a mutual desire to sing. We are carrying on, and have carried Men!! on tor tour years because we had our job to do.

By joining with the lVlen's Glee Club, i we produced an opera. Many of us indivi- dually know little about music, and we use Women's Choral as a place to learn. We want to take an active part in the rendering as well as in the ap- preciation of the finest in music. This we offer as our share in building a bet- ter Pitt. Women's Choral goes formal each semester at a banquet, then we give keys to those of us who are seniors-- to those of us who have worked the hardest to make us what we desire to be. We wish to be a credit to and an integral part of all University organ- Iean Kimpel izations. For them "We offer song." As the special group of women wanted to band together to sing, we have a group of men with the same desire. We are the Men's Glee Club. Sometimes we remind you of a barber- shop quartet - during the last four years it's been difficult for us to be more than that. And yet, we insisted on hanging together, on giving a few local concerts under the direction of Mr. Finney, and on making so much noise you could scarcely realize there Food!! f18Tj Lissi Y.M.C.A.

We of the Y's pledge our- selves to the task of striving toward the best Christian ideals. While we are ever interested in the unification of all denominations, we must acknowledge that each of us worship God in his own way and under a specific form often given a specific name. The Lutheran students desired to cooperate, to have fellow- ship one with another, and thus be- came the Lutheran Students' Associa- tion. We hold monthly meetings- dinner is served, of course. Sometimes, we just meet for fung other times we become forums and discussion groups. We, the Lutheran students, are look- ing up and ahead to a world of peace that will make our organ- ization symbolic of our slogan-"lfaith- Food-and Fun." Each of us, each or- ganization, became a war organization aft- er December 7. Two of us were given birth by Pearl Harbor. The War Finance Com-- mittee became one of LaRue Moss. LSA President us because there was a serious task to be performed. We have a slogan- "Lest we forget, the end is not yet," and this we remember each time we launch a campaign to sell bonds and stamps in coordination with the National war loan drives. Unlike our brothers, we don't want to exist any longer than we feel it expedient, and this might be our goal. We want to help each of you con- tribute to the support of the warg we want to do all we can as long as we are need- edg we must pray that our need may not be for long. We look at the vet-- erans-a big name for lim, lohn, Ted, who went away col- lege kids and came home men-and we contribute all. Silent- ly, we thank the War Finance Committee for taking care of the details for us. And yet, giving money is not enough. You, who have come back, must join the organiza- tions of the University such as the War Veterans' Association. We became the W. V.

We'll have a big exclusive so- cial event each year, and We'll get to- gether then and talk about the time when "We were expendable." We govern, we sing, We Worship Godg sometimes We are serious, some- times We are gay. We, the organiza- tions, like to think that each of us con- tributes something to your education and something to your fun. Take Women's Speech, for instance. There was a time when ninety-nine people out of a hundred Who graduated from oi University were afraid of an audi- ence. We don't Want that to happen to Pitt Women, and so, during the War years, we have had an opportunity to let our women show what they could do. All debate and conference questions concern problems of cur- rent interest Which can be found in domestic or international news-and our girls can talk intelligently about each of these problems. We think We are doing a big job, for We are pre- paring each of us to take an active part in the discussion of the World which is to come. We look to the At- lantic Charter and beyond the Atlantic Charter to a World in which there is freedom of speech. We Want to be Worthy of this basic freedom. Some of us use Women's Speech Association as a training ground for the Work to be done in Pitt Players. There is no doubt that the Players have confronted problems aplenty because of the War. We, the Women, dug in and helped keep this organization an integral part of the University. We lost many students, We stopped trying Pitkin Relaxes 51931 lQ194:I Future Congresswomen to give two large productionsg we con- centrated on one act plays. The plays are good, though, and we offer no apology to you who are here and to you who have gone. Acting has al- ways been a part of every student's life - either real or vicarious - and Pearl Harbor could not obliterate this from Pitt. Actively, we recognized the war by turning ourselves into a co- operative body with the Key lnforma- tion Center collecting materials for soldiers, and we gave several shows for soldiers' entertainment. Pitt Play- ers are looking forward to the end-- the end we all want - for that end means we'll be better able to serve Pitt. When war comes to an end, we will feel that we have gained as an organization because we have given our all for the war effort, doing rela- tively much with nothing. Acting not only demands profici- ency in speech but in body movement as well. We are the Women's Athletic Association, and we offer you physical fun together with our companionship -the finest of all American traditions --sport. We have been a great out- let to you who have suffered much emotionally, for we gathered you to- gether, you Pitt wom- en, to play tennis, basketball, volley- ball. During these war years, we were not able to use our gym. That condition limited but did not stop us. But in all this chatter about active sports, you must not think us unsociable Amazons. We give several parties, sponsoring co-recreational dances, and in general, play. We help you re- lax, Pitt women, and this helps bring the end just that much closer. Not all our business was war. For in- stance, remember Pitt Player's "Sky- scraper Capadesu? That was nothing but sheer, hellzapoppin' fun during our Spring Circus week-end.

You are the people who are bound together by mutual likes, vocations, and proficiencies. ln each of you are the individuals who are par- ticularly interested and gifted in a special field. During your life at Pitt, you set up certain ideals, and at- tempted to make the University be more than the tallest university in the world. At times, you wanted to create interest in your fieldg you wanted to l Today Pitt--Tomorrow, the World add to the knowledge and to the fellowship. At other times you wanted .x an organized group of i--- , , people who thought as " ' you did, who dreamed as you dreamed-a group of people who might enjoy each other. Always your goal was to enrich Pitt by enriching the contacts and the exper- ience of the individual. One thing you pride yourselves upon is that you al-- ways left yourselves pliable to the changing times. True, tradition is im- portant and tradition plays a great part in your lives, but you never let yourselves be bound by it. Function- alism is the only excuse, the only rea- son by which you can justify your existence. Years of recognizing the importance of changing time gave you a weapon with which to encounter De- cember 7, l94l.

You were import- ant before the War - stimulating the men to scholarship, activity, coopera- tion, but you became more than vital. just four years ago when everything was emphasized as important to the national existence. That is, every- thing but scholarship. There was a tendency for the faculty and students to forget school. Even some professors said, "My students are working in war industries. l should lighten their load. l must not be too insistent about the quality of their Work, after all, they're contributing to the war effort." This Well-meant attitude was dangerous to the future of all of us, and Phi Eta They Could Be Studying Sigma set out to keep alive scholarship at a time when the ten- dency was to de-em-- phasize it. This was no easy task, for your fraternity was for freshman men who were fast becoming more scarce as the war years went on. You have an initiation banquet each mid-November for those of you who become brothers each Tap Day. You mostly just recognize those of the freshman class who you feel deserve thanks and recognition for the job they have done. You Want to ever ex- tend the stimulus for freshmen men to true scholarship and leadership, for it is more than likely that the members oi Phi Eta Sigma Will be the future leaders of the University and of their chosen professions. No less important is the scholarship and leadership which must be de- veloped in our freshman women. lf the freshman Women have maintained a two point average at the end of the Iim Iohns MORTAR BOARD lst Row, Betty Adams, Laura Pattison, Virginia Volkay, Ioan Rigby, lean Kimpel, Dorothy Rumbaugh. 2nd Row, Iune Thomson, Margaret Lyon, Helen Hadgis, Gertrude Blackwood, Lucille Morgan, Iosephine Hun-ell. 3rd Row, Shirley Shettler, lean Wykotf, Sylvia Amdur, lean Swope. year, if they are actively cooperative on campus, you shall probably ask them to become members of Pitt's Alpha chapter of Cwens, the national honorary fraternity for sophomore women. Cwens serve Pitt actively, and Pitt is proud of them. Everyone knows the Cwen student directory-the one we use to check an address or a tele- phone number of a fellow student. Well, in spite of all the printing handi- caps brought on by the war, the Cwens publish it each year. Cwens act as nationality room guides and as hostes- ses at a senior tea, and you, too, are known as campus leaders in scholar- ship and in activities. l-land in hand with the Cwens are the Druids, a sopho- more honorary fra- ternity for men. The Druids, like the Cwens, are part of the University with specific tasks and functions. Even as the enrollment of fresh- men men decreased, the Druid Smoker, Ioan Rigby where the fellows signed up for Univer- sity activities went on. Pewer and fewer men were here to sing in Heinz Chapel, to act with the Pitt Players, to participate in YM and Newman Club activities, but Druids realized that the place of men in campus activities must be preserved, and you, too, tried to maintain a standard of normalcy in this modern "tragic era." Dr. Ferguson and Dr. Crouch joined you at the Royal York for the Druid banquet. Ration points and a scarcity of butter did not spoil the fun of the group as you ate, talked and planned for Pitt in the years to come.

Dr. Swanson, Mr. Daufenbach, Dr. Crawford, Mr. Biddle All These Men and Food, Too Perhaps the greatest honor that can come to a Pitt woman is to be asked to be one of Mortar Board. Each of the underclass honorary and scholas- tic fraternities, each activity prepares the women to become a member. You, like the rest of us, exist to serve the Universityg you usher at gradu- ation, are hostesses at many occa- sions. You hold offices in W.S.G.A., you edit Pitt News, you lead in Panhel meets. You try to be helpful to each freshman woman, and many of you serve as advisors for the guilds. You even take an orientation class over now and theng and, of course, you help at the Chancellor's Reception. ln spite of the weight brought on you by Pearl Harbor, you smile and go on keeping and building the University into a challenging academic and so- cial world. True it is that Pitt looks to members of Mortar Board for women leaders, and Omicron Delta Kappa, national activities fraternity, holds the same place at Pitt for the men. When fresh- men first come to Pitt, they are made aware of Omicron Delta Kappa through the O.D.K. walk . Freshman women acknowledge their lowly state by retraining from going up this walkg everyone looks at the names of the brothers who have gone before us-names cut deep in the stone. ln 1944 O.D.K. almost had to catch its breath, you skidded and nearly went under because of the Emergency, but with the help of the faculty, you fought for your life and won. This year eight brothers joined you. One of these men who wear the O.D.K. key, William Veenis, Loren Braner, Richard Briney, Pobert Dixon, lackson lce, Grant Lee, lohn McKinley, Frank McWade- might see his name cut in the walk.

Many in Xylon intend to leave Pitt and do profes- sional journalism- some already haveg these people repre- sent Pitt and do a bang-up job of it, too. You meet every other week now, and you mostly talk shop with the guid- ance of a professional speaker. The Ad Club invites you to their Tuesday noon luncheons where you meet the boys and girls actually in harness. You have an initiation banquet and several dinners throughout the year. But, in the final analysis, you are the talkingest bunch to be found, and you spend much of your time at that. ln spite of the rush, the helterskelter of all of you to meet deadlines, you meet and try to find ways to publish better newspapers and yearbooks. ln spite of the dreams of the future when there will be no restrictions on paper, print, film and staff workers, in spite of a wistful sigh about the Pitt Panther, a war casualty, we hope, and at least you try to express the ideals of the Virginia Volkay University through the medium of a typewriter. But what about you professional fraternities? We want to know your brothers who are holding high inter- est in your chosen professions, for after all, your main job at the Uni- versity is to learn, not only facts but how to live.

This is certainly true of the medical fraternities. For six years the Medical Interfraternity Council has been tak- ing care of its members here at Pitt. The ll? makes and enforces rushing rules, the set of social events which include three dances a year and a picnic. And to encourage the fraterni- ties, the Medical lnterfraternity Coun- cil gives one of you a plague to indi- cate the highest scholastic average. The representatives of the Medical lnterfraternity Council come from you who are Phi Delta Epsilon. Nu Sigma Nu and Phi Rho Sigma.

Dances, dinners, informal get-togethers take care of that "all work, no play makes lack a dull boy." Life suddenly became grim in a hurry -yesterday there were long hours oi leisure, weekend trips, holiday vaca- tions and the whole future to look to when suddenly today you had to hurry to finish your training that you might each take your place helping the men in battle.

Closely allied with medicine is pharmacy and so it is with the pro- fessional pharmacy fraternities. The members of Lambda Kappa Sigma are women and you are busy, but you are not as busy as the men. You want to feel that you worked for those who are away and so you become nurses' aides, you gave blood, and you rolled bandages for the Red Cross. You "On My Cadaver-" needed to keep up on everything new in your professionp that meant meetings with the Duquesne chapter for professional dis- cussions. You gather- ed information about pharmacy and put it into a magazine you named the Blue and Gold Triangle. You thought the alums would want you to keep this up, and the magazine went to bed each guar- ter as usual. You had your alumni banquet, too, in spite of preparing to take the men's places in the world and keeping your work up to par. Phar- macy, as well as medicine, could gath- er her leaders together in fraternities to help keep everyone's feet on the ground at a time when it would be so easy to walk ten feet above the clouds.

Dodie Hurrell, President SOCIAL F RATERNITIES Man is a gregarious creature. Boys congregate into gangs, girls form cligues. Men join everything from poker clubs to staid organizations, women go all out for bridge or have a sewing circle. All of which goes to prove the inherent reason for men and women's social fraternities at the Uni- versity of Pittsburgh. Fraternities are for the few, they enrich the individual life of those who belong to them and through the enrichment of the indi- vidual, the University benefits as a whole. At Pitt, the street-car University, women's fraternities own and maintain houses which are used to house board- ers on campusy however, most of the men live in their own fraternity houses. During the war years, all fraternities became another organized group to aid in any way possible the University and the nation at war. l-lardships were worked upon all-particularly upon men's fraternities. Economically and socially, life had to be adjusted to the state of emergency which existed. Formal affairs until i944-45 were some- thing to remember. House dances ww ..- w U. . ..

And yet, over and over again, it was discovered that the people on campus who did things were fraternity people. A pin, Greek letters, spirit-- that something which is intangible forces the individual to be more of a person because of his relationship to the group. With no other pretension than being an exclusive social group, the fraternity at Pitt becomes an influ- ence for good, a stimulation for ac- tivity, a school for the development of leadership.

Almost equally strong is the adolescent need of inflicting physical torment as proof of Worthi- ness, of "hell Weeks" and all night ses- sions with a paddle. Both of these fundamental needs are fulfilled by fraternities, but more important are the associations and national contacts formed in fraternities. All organizations need a central There'll Be a Hoi Time in 4C Tonight government, that was decided in Philadel- phia many years ago. Women fraternities are governed by the Panhellenic Associa- tion. ln our fourth year of War, Panhel- lenic Association has transferred its party Lois Lune budgets to War bonds and its leisure program to the selling of War stamps. Under Panhel's guidance fraternity women have volunteered their serv- ices to the Red Cross, the Nurse's Aide program, the blood bank, and to the various U. S. O. Canteens. Also, Panhel has sponsored and has attended many forums and lectures on post-War prob- lems. Panhel members, Working with all other fraternity Women, are "looking upward" by attempting to increase the feeling of common interest and mutual co-operation among the various fraternities. They plan to strengthen inter-fraternity relations by scheduling a series of conferences during which the fraternity girls will be able to discuss their common prob- f if CHI OMEGA 1st Row, Mary Lou Stack, Audrey Bishop, Iane Ewing, Nancy Yant, Alice Krepps, Ieanne Mostoller. 2nd Row, Iane Mellon.

"Fra- ternity, especially in this time of war, has come to have the deeper, richer, and truer meaning of friendship and serviceg friendship and service not only within its own small circle, but among all fellow students .... Fra-- ternity is a way to better womanhood and citizenship in the free world of tomorrow." This year Panhel returned to the traditional formal ball in April . . . the Ball where the girls do the asking and the ticket buying. And who are the girls . . . well, we want you to meet them, to know something about each of them. Let's have each one come to us alone, each has a similar story to tell with an individual twist. Each has a quota of war bonds to sell, each en- tertained and tea-danced with the men's fraternities. Many members trotted down to the blood banks, lay on high cots and let efficient nurses draw blood from their arms. Some of them took care of refugee children, worked in canteens, gave scholar- ships. But the general story is never as in- teresting as the indi- vidual. Come in Alpha Epsilon Phi. We hear that you hold the rec- ord on campus for selling the most War Bonds during the past three drives. You certainly come to the fore when it comes to war work-how about the ambulances-three of them Nancy lean Yan! -you gave to the Red Cross?

And your idea of making Pitt more uni- versal, of striving to foster a better relationship between the independent women and the fraternity women proves what we've been saying about fraternity contributions to the Uni- versity as a whole. We're glad you took time out to have the traditional Founders Day Banquet with Tech, though. You've got to forget the war sometimes or you'll go mad. Talking about Founder Day's, may- be the Chi Omeqas would like to be presented here. You celebrated your fiftieth birthday this April. As a mat- ter of fact, this has been an important year for you, for after you vacationed in Atlantic City, you left the apart- ment to move into your new house. And there is something different about that house, for with very few excep- tions, only Chi C's will live there-- sornething no other fraternity can boast about. We're proud of you, for not only do you talk about the future, but you wade right in and prepare for it.

Alpha gained enough of an edge to come in first. That's only one reason all of us commend the T.P.A.'s, the all- Catholic women's fraternity. With a frankly spiritual outlook, these women work for the boys by holding dances, by writing letters, by sending pack- ages overseas, and by going to Com- munion in a corporate body. We're proud of you because you want more activities for all women-you want to organize a rifle team, an archery team.
