There were many, to be sure. We may remember that it was in the fall of '52 that Phi Beta Kappa voted to establish a chapter at Pittg some of us may recall the thrill of witnessing the English Room Dedication, others may think of Pitt's first Political Week, with happiness or disgust depending on party afiiliation, and of the slogan that resulted, "As Pitt goes, so goes the nation." Many of us will be saddened by the memory of Professor Robert X. Graham's sudden death. All of us will surely recall Pitt's rise to national football prestige and the long-sought-for victories over Notre Dame, Army, and Ohio State, and the Orange Bowl hopes that were dashed by the decisive defeat by Penn State. In reflection, vivid memories-the sad and the happy-of Pitt in 1952-53 will come back to us, but there is something which we will never recall exactly, which we will have with us always. It will be the crux of the college experience, the accumulation of four years of the interplay of thoughts with fellow students, administration, and fa.culty. The Owl is a record of Pitt in 1952-53g it belongs to us students, for without us, Pitt would not be. The 1953 Owl is more than that, though. It is a tribute to the administration and faculty, for without them there could not be for us this college experience. We, the 1953 Owl staff, have tried not only to record a chronicle of Pitt in 1952-53, but to present you University adminis- trators and faculty in the way we will remember you most. The Owl is meant for you who have given us the most intangible but most permanent memory of our life here at Pitt, the essence ofa college experience. t FUREWURIJ XXL xi .48 In addition to his responsibilities as Head of the Music Appreciation Department,Dr. Finney teaches several classes. This picture, taken as he advises Barbara Millen, illustrates his genuine interest in his students. "My better half" are the worcls "Pop" uses when introducing Mrs. Finney. The dogs, "Munk" and "Punk," as named by the choir, have long been a familiar part of' the Finney home. Seldom does an afternoon go by when "Pop" doesn't spend some time in the Tuck Shop conversing and joking over a cup of coffee with his kids, the Heinz Chapel Choir. DEDICATIUN Dr. Theodore M.

Finney. From among my many respected friends on the faculty and administrative staffs hare at Pitt I can think of no one more richly deserving of this honor. Nor can I think of a person who will be more genuinely surprised, outwardly diffident, and inwardly tickled pink. For here is one of the few individuals I know who can live success- fully without any duelism ln two worlds at once. He can be both director and participant at one and the sane time. He places a high premium on motive and sincerity and in him are mingled in equal pro- portion ,Soy of 1 e an , practical performance, informality and propriety, camaraderie and stern loyalty. Because it la pert of his fiber, he can build music of his students, To the if d serious purpose esthetic sensitivity and and melody into the eyes, minds and hearts Heinz Chapel Choir, as to hls other students, he ls a father, a teacher, a companion, a human being. And to his associates ha is ever a willing, fair-minded, competent colleague. With ease he makes teaching a complete lay of life. Lat me summarize by saying that I am the better for having known Theodore Finney and am proud that he is my friend. lith best wishes to your publication, I am Very truly yours, if - . aymond F. Brittain J N , X 'X - Einar fa FN LL OF US here at the University, our University family Qstudents, teachers, administrators, alumni, the office personnel, the men and women who keep our buildings and grounds beautifull are held together in one common set of aims and purposes, which have as a major objective the idea of helping build a life that is rich in meaning, happy and successful, materially and spiritually. With this ideal in mind the University has the following purposes and aims: to draw out, cultivate, excite, and inspire the full development of each student, to create an atmosphere in which students will learn to think, to help students establish values through intimate acquaintance with the humanities, the arts, the natural sciences, the social sciences, and religion, to develop the character of students-integrity, honesty, judgement, cooperation, friendliness, and good-will, to create a community of scholars where research, curiosity, free inquiry, and discovery advance knowledge, to provide competent, well-trained professional leadership for one of the world's most important industrial areas, to prepare men and women for citizenship in a democratic nation where freedom and liberty go hand in hand with law and justice and where responsibility, national and international, is a characteristic of the individual. ELLURS MESSAGE To carry out these purposes the University has established standards, programs and facilities, a distinguished faculty, capable students, a campus with useful and inspiring buildings, strong and appropriate courses of study, support of research programs, help to the student in planning a career, support of student organizations and sports, and the integration of the University with the community around it. All these ideas and plans have grown with the University through 166 years and all of them become realities through the loyal co-operation of our students.

Crowded as we are in elevators, halls, thrust skyward in one great building, men and women, students and teachers, all are part of lde at Pitt. The Owl camera has here caught Professor Yames C. Craig, School fy' Education, in the elevator shujte. With campus activities centered as they are in the Cathedral of Learning, men from the other buildings, State and Thaw and A- lumni, must pe1y'orce spend a good portion of their days walking. Faculty, students, all make the trek, as does Robert Bonn, In- structor in Civil Engineering, uphill to State. fin ,5- SW gv A' FL X ' ' L A 11 .il I lm :f'2lY'-LKB!" 1 , iw , f'fLgli if i EQ: Zig 1 H-E-4 .M .

Only we who daily jill halls and classrooms can know the sati.y'action ojered by the stimulating personalities, the erudition of many of our teachers. Representative of the ancient learning is Philosophy Professor Richard F. Hope. Pitt has had many great teachers. But, in- eoitahhv, each year we must lose a few of them. The "Owl," like all the studentpuhlica- tions at Pitt, owed a great debt to the late Robert X. Graham, professor of journalism, here photographed against the Gothic stone- work of the school he served so willingly. In ancient times, of course, philosophy circumscribed all knowledge. Today, as knowledge has grown complex, one reason for large universities may he found in the numher of studies necessary to pursue the manifold pathways of knowledge. But still philosophy, however, are the complex meas- urements of Engineer Rohert W. ffackson. Some pursue knowledge with oscilloscopes, others with hooks, with anything the search demands. The communication of knowledge itseh' must he studied, and taught. Pitt's School of Education has a faculty engaged in creatingfaculties, as is Professor ?'ohn W. Harhaugh, engaged in research in the Sixth Floor Reference Library. Preparation for classes occupies more of a student's and a teacher's time than do the lecture hours themselves. fl moment's relax- ation, perhaps with a cigaret, and then hack to the hooks. The picture is of Professor Harold M. Baker, mechanical engineering department, hut it could he any student, any night. Counselling, advising, as well as teaching, are part of the faculty's duties. Dr. Dorothy Miller is adviser to many Education stu- dents, hut here she is fuhilling another aca- demic obligation-grading 'test papers, a measure of our progress. At registration the first meeting of students and advisers oecurs. Although things are likely to be in a state of confusion, schedules eventualbf manage to be arranged to give us our required subjects and maybe afew of the electives we want. fit the advisers' table is Mr. ffohn D. Phillips, physics department. Seminar classes, and other small groups ojer ideal teaching programs. All Pitt we have a few, are getting more. Here a student in a summer recreation class C for pleasure father than creditj, gets some pointers in fb'- tying from Professor Edwin L. Peterson, of the English department, an expert fisher- 771471. Before and after class some of the best teach- ing is done, as this student is finding out. Dr. 7ohn R. Bickley, modern languages department, answers a student's questions before class in one ofthe Nationality Rooms, where the surroundings are more pleasant than the bricks we got used to a few years ago. 15 'J The "community of scholars" is still afact, even today. At Pitt are the headquarters of several scholarly associations, ojicers of which are on our faculty. Dr. Arthur M. Young, head of the classics department, picks up his mail in the University post ojice, can expect to ind letters from other scholars. Individual instruction, of course, is a must in varsity competition, and the venerable coach of basketball, Dr. H. C. Carlson, is quick to demonstrate a few of the finer points U foul shooting. The doctor's scholarship usuallv rubs cj on some cy' his honor-student players. 'V' We don't meet the faculty onb' in the class- room. Their paths and ours cross through- out Pitt lQ'e. Tuck Shops, cafeteria, librar- ies, and Commons Room, are common meeting grounds. Dr. ji Warren Nystrom, head of the geography department enjoys afternoon tea with students. Social events lighten the pressure of aca- demic Me. At all Pitt dances, the faculty are welcome guests. Colonel Holland L. Robb, head of the department of military science and tactics, joined the ROTC students at the Military Ball. The Faculty Club, in fact, is the only place where the faculty can escape from the ubiqui- tous student. At lunch, the "Owl" photog- rapher was allowed in long enough to take a picture of Professors Raymond F. Black- burn and Arend E. Boer, Business Admin- istration. Saturday afternoons jfnd Pitt students and faculty alike climbing the hill to the stadium. Ardent supporters 4 Pitt gridiron fortunes for many years have been Dr. Marion K. McKay, professor of economics, ana' Mrs. McKay. so lV',s'g4 Gly s f 'Y f-'f"""9'-nr M M , I U .

You probably know that you automatically become an alumnus of the University after graduation. Whether you become active or just a name on the records is, of course, your choice. As you move into larger areas ofresponsibility following graduation, you will be required to make many decisions. You will meet the challenge by getting the facts and making a determination. If space permitted, many facts supporting a decision to become an active supporting alumnus could be listed. Here are a few, however: CID The facilities you enjoyed during your undergraduate days which were essential to your education were made possible in large measures by the active alumni interest of former graduatesg C21 You with others have the opportunity of continuing those privi- leges and making Pitt's future outstanding among the universities of the nationg Cgj The Association through its organizational structure can be a medi- um ofcontinuing school friendships beyond gradu- ation. In fair judgement, don't you experience a sense of obligation to share in the work and ob- jectives of our Alumni Association? Will you write or contact the General Alumni Secretary, J. Clyde Barton, 3632 Cathedral of Learning, for ways in which you can effect con- tinued interest and loyalty to your Alma Mater. Cordially, 6"""7' Paul W.

QBy the way, Flo was acceptcdj In their last year at Pitt, senior girls have the opportunity to be mentors. Flo is one of these girls: she acts as an adviser to freshmen girls, counciling them on scholastic importance, poise, sororities, etc. Whether they are studying pre-med, pharmacy, or liberal arts, members ofthe College must take a year ofa science with n lab. 44 The fifth floor library is the most popular of the three at Pitt A College student usually puts in an average of two hours o library work per day. Many of the girls in the College are members of sororities These groups add greatly to the social life at Pitt. ln the Blu Tuck Flo takes time out for a coke with some of her sororit sisters, Chi Omega's. Flo is a member of Student Congress, one of the governin bodies at Pitt. Helping her do some of the stapling for in portant notices is Maggie Dowling. l ,. i I 4 I NSTRUCTION in the College curriculum at the University of Pittsburgh is based on the idea that every student should receive a general education that will prepare him to express himselfadequately, to understand many of the complexities of the world in which he lives, and to perform his duties as a citizen with intelligence, tolerance, and conviction, and to develop his own maximum capacity for the enjoyment of intellectual and asthetic pleasures. To meet these needs each student in the College is required to complete a schedule which includes, without exception, two years of English language and literature, two years of a foreign language, at least one year of physical education, and eighteen credits in three principal areas of academic study: the humanities, the social studies, and the natural sciences. With this type of background, the student picks his major subject to study intensively and extensively during his junior and senior years. The College in the University is the direct descendant of the original Pittsburgh Academy founded in 1787 . . . a fact that every freshman student knows well. It has been responsible during the years for creative writers, painters, philosophers, biologists, geologists, and various other fields. In addition to serving the College students who are registered for a degree, the College offers courses to students registered in the other schools of the University and to those preparing for professional school. The College has developed courses to enable the student to explore many fields of knowledge and to become aware of their relatedness. Dean Stanton C. Crawford and the personnel staff, with the aid of the faculty and various administrative oiiicers, endeavor to maintain a close relationship to aid in understanding of the problems of the individual student, in order to help him work out a good social, educational, vocational, emotional, and in fact, general adjustment. The entire college curriculum seeks to instill in the student a feeling of personal responsibility for continuous growth and a desire for a better understanding of the cultural heritage ofhis community and nation and to develop a sense of responsibility to others in the University and the rest of mankind.

It will be located on O'Hara Streetg the center portion of this new building will contain six Hoors. In lab class Dick participates in a thermo analysis of steel. All such ex- periments are conducted in the metallurgical lab. Learning to operate instruments such as this is part of the education stu- dents receive in this mechanical engineering power lab. 52 Laboratory in Thaw Hall is one of many in which students spend much time as engineers. Students are pouring a heat from a furnace into a forging. In the process one student prepares to take a sample. With the help of another student, Dick tests an ingot in the reheat furnace. r, . .egg r f P1' ' iff! v1' HE DEMAND for engineers is reaching an all time high in the United States. Since World War II the heavy demands made upon industry and manufacturing have demonstrated the necessity for correct application of modern engineering principles. To meet the atomic age and keep astride of engineering designs, the 'University of Pittsburgh plans to erect a new building this summer connect- ing Thaw and Mellon Halls. The recognition of the need for new facilities is fundamental to en- gineering progress. The new six story building will provide well equipped hydraulics and strength ofmaterials laboratories plus many other labs to accomodate all other phases of engineering. The Engineering and Mines student is one of the hardest working and conscientious persons attending the university. Always recognizable by a slide rule under one arm, the engineers are usually seen walking up Bigelow Boulevard to State and Thaw Halls. The engineers' class hours are longer than the average undergraduate student. He spends approximately eight to twelve hours in lab in one week and his outside work consists on the average of four hours a night. The College and the School of Engineering and Mines of the University have entered into a cooperative plan of studies involving a total of five years and leading to two degrees. A student completing three years of work in the College and two years of work in the School of Engineering and Mines may satisfy the requirements for a Bachelor of Science degree from the College at the end of the fourth year and a Bachelor of Science degree from the School of Engineering and Mines in the department of his curriculum at the end of the fifth year. The student can .choose either plan and is also eligible to do graduate re- search work in engineering. A concluding point to bring out in the expansion of the research program is the new arm of research the University has extended to Fifth Avenue. As the present labs became more crowded, the establishment of this lab became a necessity. All this expansion and extension may mean nothing to the present-day student now at the University, but in a few years every one will benefitg the present-day student, the incoming student, and the graduateg for all will face a brighter and more useful engineering future. 1 s BETTY KLEIN Ambridge, pa, JOAN E.

Paul attends a meeting of Alpha Kappa Psi, honorary Business Adminis- tration Fraternity. The organization is open to male students only. 69. Students who have classes in the Cathedral have three places in which to eat: Blue Tuck, Red Tuck, and Cafeteria. Paul prefers the cafeteria since there is more room and a larger variety of food. An accounting major, Paul values all the free time he can get. An average accounting problem takes approximately five hours of work per night. College students immediately think of rulers and large yellow work sheets when Business Administration is mentioned to them. True to popular belief, the Bus Ad student spends many hours on accounting. Professor Jablonski instructs one of Paul's classes. i i J ,agfmt DDING figures is an everyday job in the School of Business Administration. Business law, eco- nomics, political science, merchandising, accounting, and insurance classes are only a few of the courses offered in the University for ambitious men and women. The purposes of the School of Busi- ness Administration are: to prepare students for positions of responsibility in the economic and busi- ness world and in governmentg to cultivate those qualities of mind and character which make useful citizens with high ideals of business morality and social responsibilityg to inspire them toward high standards of scholarship and leadershipg and, to develop in them the ability to think clearly and logically. The school seeks also to establish a sound education in business subjects for those students who plan to teach, enter the legal profession, or further their education through graduate study, to bring about an understanding of the relationships between individuals, business and the communityg and to disseminate knowledge in the field of economic and business aH'airs, with particular reference to the important industrial community in which the University of Pittsburgh is located. Speaking broadly, four years in the School of Business Administration should lead to a successful and socially useful career in business. Completing the spring of the senior year, representatives from approxi- mately fifteen different companies invade the graduating ranks in the School and interview students for jobs. Normally, the interview rush is a spring rush. The numerous interviews are arranged by the Placement Bureau ofthe University. Out of town companies and accounting firms make appoint- ments with the Bureau and forms showing the interview times are posted on the twentieth Hoor. More and more, business is demanding university trained men and women. Every year a number of former students who have left before graduation to enter business return to complete their education. The several departments of the School of Business Administration offer a complete program of graduate courses and seminars leading to Masters degrees. ' 1ll'51f:mfiQ3j , , ffl.

Education 69 Engineering I W i Dean Franklin and Ethel Ross, a senior in education, check the Universi- ty Bulletin to see if Ethel has the required subjects for graduation. In their senior year, all education students practice teach. A practice teacher for the first grade at Frick School, Ethel teaches the boys and gi-rls a new game. Helping the children dress is an enjoyable task to Ethel. Her education prepares her for handling all eventualities with finesse and finality. 70 Teaching a child to write is a challenge to both the student and the teacher. Ethel, and all teachers, are very proud when they see the boys and girls whom they are teaching, master this skill. Reading is taught to the children before they begin to write. To aid the class, the teacher uses word-cards placed on the board. These words can be intcrchanged, thus enabling the boys and girls to better grasp the meaning ofthe word. Ethel and Mr. George W. Hoffman, Director of the Teachers Appoint- ment Bureau and Assistant Professor in Education, take a forwarc look to Ethel's career. l pls g,,Q'f'6u Wi. must 1-H, XM-ll,ni-ll Nm-lu' IS lxznppx lm! ,W than HE PRIMARY concern of American education today is . . . to cultivate in the largest number of our future citizens an appreciation both of the responsibilities and the benefits which come to them because they are American and free." The above quotation of purpose may be one of the many reasons why so many enthusiastic students are preparing to be educators. The School of Education at the University of Pittsburgh has one of the largest enrollments in the undergraduate schools. Application for admission to the school is made in the last semester of the sophomore year. The students must meet the strict standards of the school and have at least sixty-two credits in college work before they make application. Following their admission they study specialized courses for teaching methods, tests and measures, and psychological development of the child. The student who plans to teach must have a broad and extensive education to meet the progressive age in which he is living. They must be prepared to meet the constant ways of the younger generation. Nowadays children are helping to educate themselves by watching television and their very receptive minds need guidance. The basic principles ofeducation will never change, but the education of the students in schools today is becoming more extensive and specialized, requiring the instructor to also learn while instructing. To meet this need, Pitt offers courses requiring the students to observe classes in schoolrooms around the general Pittsburgh area. The students prepare lesson plans and experience the everyday planning a teacher must do. At Pitt the four fields in the School of Education are Secondary Education, Physical Education, Elementary Education, and Business Education. During the first two years in the college, an education student's schedule consists of English, geography, biology, and other related sciences and general education classes. During the four year college life of the student, special programs, speakers, and conferences are arranged by the Dean of the school. Education sororities, fraternities, and honoraries such as Delta Delta Lambda and Alpha Beta Gamma challenge the students to consistently maintain high scholastic standing.

To this end the social, economic and ethical relationships of the profession are stressed. From thousands of applications received yearly, the University of Pittsburgh School of Dentistry selects only the most capable men for enrollment in their school, really one of the finest in the country. Building from a firm basis in the sciences, the student is given thorough training in the most modern techniques of scientific anat- omy, prosthesis, histology and the many related sciences. In his junior and senior year, the Dent student has an opportunity to put theory to prac- tice as he works in the infirmary. The University of Pittsburgh School of Dentistry was established on April zo, 1896 as the Pittsburgh Dental College. Since that time it has grown considerably in both size and improve- ments. The present buildings are well equipped with modern dentistry tools and improved teach- ing apparatus. 76 'Q . V, -J 3 ' Y ' -Xffi 'xy . 1 ty I N H tions on X-raying a patient's mouth.

At Ellsworth Center, the nurses have a small part of Pitt all their own this year. Almost all of the nursing classes have been scheduled in the red brick building for the 1952-53 session. The faculty and students are able to meet together through the Student-Faculty Nursing Association. The Association works through special committees composed of both faculty and undergraduates, which does much to enrich the lives of the student nurses. At the end of the preclinical period, beginning students receiver their first honor of recognition at the "capping ceremony." The Black Banding ceremony at the beginning of the senior year is the second stepping stone to a career in nursing. The final recognition for students of nursing is the Pinning ceremony at the end of the basic profes- sional program. 1 At the end of their five-year training program, the nurses may schedule further specialization work at the University or enter their professional careers with a sense of security based on the knowledge of the excellent nursing education that they have received. Not only must a nurse be adept at administering a hypo, but she must also be a part-time dietician. Here, the girls practice on themselves by preparing Z1 well-balanced lunch. bk.

The Pitt School of Pharmacy, although located on the Boulevard of the Allies, is a very important part of the University. Pharmacy school students are an especially close, well-knit group with a strong sense of fellowship and co- operation. The group publishes its own news- paper, The Pill Capsule, and has organized an active student council. Besides busy classroom and lab work, the senior class annually takes two trips to Parke-Davis in Detroit, Michigan and Eli Lily in Indianapolis, Indiana. Prominent 1 visiting speakers in pharmacy and its allied fields, stimulating seminars, and visits to pharmacy laboratories provide a full schedule for these stu- dents. A student branch of the American pharma- ceutical Association provides an excellent link with the practicing pharmacists. Dean E. C. Reif and his fine staff believe in a well-rounded education and have encouraged many social events each year. The new equipment and re- search laboratory provided added incentive for high scholastic achievement. ' if 86 EDWIN R. ARMOUR Pittsburgh, Pa. Pharmacy MARVIN BARENT Pittsburgh, Pa. Pharmacy ALBERT L.

Founded in 1918, the Retail Training Bureau was organized as a cooperative venture between major Pittsburgh stores and higher education for the purpose of developing future store executives. The close and sympathetic cooperation has con- tinued through thirty-hve years. Of particular advantage to students is the location of the Retail Training Bureau in the city of Pittsburgh, long recognized as "the city of department stores." Pittsburgh, therefore, serves as the ideal laboratory in training for careers in retailing. Students work under a program which coordinates university classroom instruction by store-trained professors with practical experience in prominent retail stores. Classroom theory is tested in actual working situations, an opportunity rare in the learning stage of any career. Experi- ence, in turn, serves to enrich classroom discus- sion. For the store laboratory work students are paid, thus giving the opportunity for partial self-support while training for a career. Research Bureau for Retail Training Class of 1953 F1'r.rrRow: S.

The research division of the Bureau, which seeks the better ways ofperforming retailing func- tions, develops studies based on research in Pitts- burgh's department stores. While working on these living problems, students have the oppor- tunity of applying the methods of retail research. A master's degree is earned upon successful completion of the year's study. The 19th and 9.oth floors of the Cathedral of Learning are the home of the Retail Training Bureau. Here is complete concentration on retail- ing, from specially designed classrooms to the world's largest library devoted exclusively to books and periodicals on retailing subjects. These Hoors also include the retail research division, faculty and administrative offices, and student lounge. The Director of the Bureau is Professor Bishop Brown who has been associated with the Bureau since 1929 and has been its Director since 1936. In this capacity he has helped and inspired hundreds of Bureau students who are now execu- tives in retailing the world around. An informal group meets between classes in the Bureau lounge.

To every Pitt co-ed the Vade Mecum extends the friendly invitation, "Come with me." xr? Pitt starts the season's social whirl with an all student mixer dance and from the looks of things the mixation isn't bad at all. The purpose of these get togethers is to help the new freshmen and the transfers or out of town population of Pitt and the opposite sex, f course.

Billy Graham, the Evangelist, speaks to an assembly of Pitt students at Foster Memorial.

A small donation to the Pitt Chest will register your vote, this is one election where you are encouraged to vote as many times as you please." Alpha Phi Omega did many more pleasant things though. They went as a group to the Pitt Players' production of "The Heiress" and had a party afterward. Some of the fellows were lucky enough to attend the Alpha Phi Omega national convention in Columbus, Ohio, where they got many ideas to use for service projects at Pitt. Arnold Air Society Pres.

Burns The Pitt chapter of the national honorary Air Force fraternity, Arnold Air Society, is a fairly new organization. Yet, since its origin in the spring of 1949, it has developed with admirable rapidity. This year, the society, formerly known as Prop and Wing, again strove to promote better relations and understanding between the advanced students of the AFROTC and the ROTC Department Staff, to advance the military preparedness and protection of our country and to increase our knowledge of the scope and mission of the U.S. Air Force. Besides its oflicial business, the Pitt chapter organized a Christmas Dance and other social functions including pledge smokers and picnics. The Air Society taps for members at the be- ginning of both the spring and fall semesters. Qualifications for membership are a 2.0 average in ROTC and a 1.5 overall average in the Uni- versity.

Many of the young scientists did extensive study and in- dividual research work in bacteriology with some unusual and impressive results. Tri Beta's social activities included an open house and an initiation banquet in the fall and spring, and student faculty smokers and general business meetings. The feature event of the group was a weekend field trip to the Pymatuning Laboratory of Field Biology. At this scenic spot where nature's small field animals, snakes, wild plants, and aquatic life live in freedom . . . until they arrive, the young biologists were quite at home.

Mr. Anderson, Mr. Grubbs The initiation banquets of Delta Delta Lambda at the Royal York in November are traditional at Pitt. Every year DDL, the honorary Business Education Fraternity, pledges outstand- ing scholars in this field. They have faculty speakers, honored guests, and alumni at their large affairs and social gatherings. Every year at Christmas the members have a party at one of the sorority houses on campus. This is an informal get-together where they ex- change presents and have good things to eat. The future teachers of Business Education have regular meetings and always have speakers who are eminent in their respective field. "Do you think the new type of shorthand is better than the old Gregg method?" or "Have you seen the new accounting books of high school stu- dents?" are some of the ideas and discussions among the DDL members. After the Delta Delta Lambda "Open House" plans are made, members invite all the depart- ment students to the affair. In this way they be- come acquainted with the many students at Pitt in the Business Education department.

They polish and wax the floors in the fraternity house, paint the walls and spread out the welcome mat. The Delta Sigma Delta house is always a welcome stop for all Dent School students. Delta Sigma Delta is an honorary dental fraternity honoring outstanding scholarship in the field of dentistry. In the spring of the year, the Delta Sig's packed lunches and headed for North and South Park to have farewell picnics for their graduating seniors. Dent school students don't find too much time for parties and play, but they do find time for their annual stag to finish another year of fra- ternal friendship.

Mrs. Cappelli The Lambda Kappa Sigma girls are all learning how to bake cookies, cakes, pies and fudge. No, not a home economics course, the members of the pharmacy sorority just decided that they wanted to remodel the girls' lounge at Pharmacy School. Since there isn't a Tuck Shop at Pharmacy School, the bake sales provide the students with in-between-classes snacks and serve a double service. Every year the active members sponsor an an- nual alumni banquet for graduates at the Sheraton Hotel in February. They present skits concerning the pharmacy profession and in general, promote good relations with the alumni chapter. Another annual party at the end of the school season is a farewell banquet for the graduating seniors. The girls all recall freshman days, organic chemistry tests and the different types of toothpastes that they mixed up during their many long hours in lab. At Christmastime, Margaret Sherwood and the other girls are busy planning their formal dance and party at one of the local hotels. The theme is usually in keeping with the pharmacist and his line of work from a girl's point of view. Since the girls at pharmacy school are defi- nitely in the minority, they all find lasting friend- ship and enjoyment in working with their Lambda Kappa Sigma sisters during their four years of college life.

It's ODK walk and the names inscrilxed on the stone walk are the out- standing men students of Pitt since IQI4. Each year Umieron Delta Kappa recognizes college men who have attained high standards in all phases of collegiate life. During the last few days of school in May, everyone is asking the same question, "Who do you think will make ODK walk this year?" ODK singles out and rewards the senior man who has done the most in his four years at Pitt to further ideals ofthe organization and his name is inscribed on the ODK walk. This year Joseph A. Marasco, Jr. served as presidentg Lud Lippert, Vice President.

Having a Grand President of a fraternity right on campus might cramp the style of many fraternities but not that of the Pi Delt's at Pitt. Under the watchful eye of Dr. Robert X. Graham, head of Pitt's Journalism Department and Grand Prexy of Pi Delta Epsilon, these big wheels of Pitt's publications made the ,52 and '53 semesters two of the biggest in their history. At their regular dinner-meetings their speak- ers for the past year were tops and the food more delicious than ever. But not content with just getting together at dinner meetings the Pi Delt's sponsored a gala party at North Park. Too, there was their 17ounder's Day and the annual National Convention in April with the members of Pi Delta Epsilon bubbling with en- thusiasm over both. But uppermost in their plans is the Publica- tions Lounge to be on the eighth floor for all publication workers. E. Stone, B. Millen. Second Row: N. Burzynski, G. Weinstein, ! ' Y xr!

Franks Joe Marasco and Mort Goldstein are curious to see the mis- print Phil Fireman points out to astonished friend. Only junior and senior students at Pitt who have maintained outstanding scholarship and scholastic records during their four years are eli- gible for Pi Tau Phi membership. The honorary scholastic fraternity is mainly made up of un- dergraduate students and has included in recent years graduate students who meet the active membership requirements. In the fall and spring semesters the group welcomes new members at traditional initiation banquets. They have regular business meetings bi-monthly and informal social gatherings to build group fellowship and participation. Membership in Pi Tau Phi is truly a chal- lenge to any undergraduate student. The organiza- tion recognizes intellectual leadership and is advised by Dr. Richard Hyde. The object of the bi-monthly meetings of Pi Tau Phi can perhaps best be explained by the following excerpt from the preamble of their constitution: "We the members of Pi Tau Phi, do hereby band together to conserve and spread scholarship, culture and idealism . . . always striving by all sound methods to stimulate sound thought and true intellectual standards." .

Quo Vadis is an honorary sorority that taps its members from the group of women, who as student hostesses work to interpret to the public and the student body the spirit and ideals of the Nationality Rooms. These girls are very busy with their many special projects. They are our University hostesses. You may see them pouring tea in the Commons Room any day of the week. It is through their hard work that the Commons Room gets its beautiful decorations for Christmas and other holidays. There is a busy social season planned for this year. It includes dinner on the twelfth floor in March and a tea with the Nationality Room hostess guild. Besides these major affairs, the members of Quo Vadis, cooperate with various committees of the Nationality Rooms in planning their social affairs. The sorority fosters understanding of the culture of the individual nationality groups, and instills an understanding of the interdependence of nationalities. If one day you hear a girl explaining, "This wrought-iron work came from the 1939 New York World's Fairf' you will know it's one of the Quo Vadis girls fulfilling her job as Nationality Room Hostess.

Albert Kopec First Sergeant Robert Love Adv. Major L. McCartney Scabbard and Blade is the only national un- dergraduate honorary society of its kind. On the Pitt campus, the organization honors above av- erage students in advance corps. The major purpose of Scabbard and Blade is to promote and reward efficiency in the training of the reserve officers and to assist and support the Military Department of the school. Twice a year the members "hit the deck" early in the morning to have an initiation breakfast for their new pledges. This gives all the ROTC boys an idea of real military life. Scabbard and Blade is always one of the sponsors of the big Military Ball in January. This year, Charlie Spivak played sweet music while the uniformed men waltzed their dates on the ballroom fioor of the Georgian Room in the Webster Hall Hotel. Every semester the group sponsors interfra- ternity events with Pershing Rifies and the Arnold Air Society. These included smokers, Korean war movies and athletic competitions. Another spe- cial event this year was the banquet to initiate Major Horey McCartney as a faculty adyiser. The many activities of Company D of Scabbard and Blade kindled a strong spirit of comradeship and deep respect for fraternity ideals this year by cooperating and working together. Firrt Row: J.

This is hard for most students to understand because ofthe difhculty that the majority of them have in mastering a language in high school or college. Christmas season is Sigma Kappa Phi season. They have a program for their members and pre- sent skits, dances, and customs of the different countries whose languages they speak. An open house in the spring gave the Sigma Kappa Phi an opportunity to entertain high school students and the Pitt student body. The evening was devoted to plays, speeches, and song recitals all presented in a foreign language. Also in the spring is the initiation ofthe nevy tapees.

Meeting only once a month this honorary fra- ternity promotes higher scholastic achievements among the engineering and mines students. The fraternity does not have a house or a regular meeting room and yet they are one ofthe most active honoraries on the Pitt' campus. Twenty-two actives and twenty-two pledges comprise the group of engineers under the leader- ship of Donald Gardner. "The WVest is all right, but I'll take Pittsburgh any day," at least that is what Don Gardner told his brothers after his trip to Wyoming this Octo- ber. Don attended the biennial meeting for all Sigma Tau presidents at the University of Wyo- ming. He came back to Pantherville with 'loads of new ideas and the lingering enthusiasm that goes with fraternal conventions. Now the Sig Tau's are planning to have reg- ular meetings in a local restaurant. They are also planning another big project that will take a long time . . . but it's in the secret stage now. December 15, pledges of Sigma Tau were honored at a banquet and social evening provided by active members.

A theater party at the Pittsburgh Playhouse and a Christmas Party rounded out the year of 1952 for them. But soon after the new semester began, the Sigma Theta's presented Dr. M. C. Elmer, who spoke on "Human Relations." Their initiation banquet was at the Faculty Club in March. In April was their card party and finally in June, their initiation tea. As they have don'e every year since their founding-at the University of Pittsburgh in 1946, the Sigma Theta's provided a scholarship for a pre-nursing student in the College at Pitt and honored a graduating nurse with a special award on Scholar's Day.

The installation was per- formed by Dr. Goodrich C. White, president of the United Chapters of Phi Beta Kappa. Accord- ing to the Phi Beta Kappa handbook, in the es- tablishing of new chapters, emphasis is placed "not on quantitative measurements but rather upon the spirit ofa college, the quality of its work, and the achievements of its graduates." Much of the credit in having the chapter established is due to the seventy-five members of the Pitt faculty who represented Phi Beta Kappa chapters from forty-four colleges. These faculty members were the grantees of Xi chapter and were active in its formation. The installation of Xi chapter not only brings honor and recognition to the llniversity, but is a stimulus and an encouragement to stu- dents and faculty alike.

To accomplish that purpose, in- structors who are officers and airmen selected by the Air Force, teach cadets such basic subjects as World Political Geography, Drill, Exercise of Command, Leadership, Aerodynamics, Propul- sion and Applied Air Power. Upon successful completion ofthe first two years of the course, cadets may enroll in the Advanced Course in which subjects taught are in the fields ofAdminis- tration and Logistics, Flight Operations, and Con- trollership. The AFROTC program is designed to pro- vide the student with a balanced course of ofiicer- development training and ofiicer-career training, both theoretical and practical. This in conjunc- tion with his academic curriculum will qualify him to discharge all duties and responsibilities which may be required of him as a junior officer of any component of the Air Force, without fur- ther formal schooling.

Dr. Dorothy McCurry For the second consecutive year Alpha Beta Gamma has one of the largest memberships in the history of the sorority at Pitt. Over one hundred active members sparked the professional elemen- tary education sorority on to an exceptionally active year. The purpose of the sorority is to promote unity among the students of elementary education,foster a wider social and cultural life, and promote fellowship between faculty and ad- ministration. A large Christmas party for mem- bers, a square dance, and a picnic provide ample entertainment for the year. At monthly meetings speakers such as G. A. Yoakum and George W. Hoffman provided the insight into actual class- room experience for the future educators. In 1904 Alpha Beta Gamma was founded on Pitt's campus. From the small nucleus of women in the school who then planned to teach in the ele- mentary schools, the sorority has steadily grown to its present capacity membership. This is an indication of the sorority's ability to recognize the changing needs of its members on campus in the passing school years.

In spite of its short time on campus, however, the organiza- tion has upheld its purpose-to promote and fur- ther the professional organization and interest in the chemical engineering field. One way in which it has done so is the yearly presentation of an award to the outstanding sophomore in the field. In the Seminar's program this year, was the use of moving pictures and of professional speakers. In its first year the group heard such noted speakers as Dr. H. C. Carlson of the University faculty and Mr. W. M. Gerson ofE. I. duPont de Nemours and Company, Inc. Also stimulating were the seminar's field trips to various plants in the area. Last year included in the tour were the Schenley Distillery and the Duquesne Brewery. Firxl Row: W. Hess, R. Chorba, T. Rice, J. Hall, Dr. J. Coull, M. Harris, E. Wojtkowski. W. Hlavaty, R.

The goals of the American Institute of Elec- trical Engineers Seminar are: to encourage young electrical engineers, to keep the students in close Contact with the practicing field, and to keep the AIEE's abreast of the latest developments. In 1915, five seniors, representing the entire class of the School of Electrical Engineering at Pitt, attended the first seminar ofthe AIEE. Since that time the seminar has steadily grown into one of the most active seminars. The student representation in the chapter this year is near the two hundred mark including all juniors and seniors in the school. The members attend weekly seminar meet- ings, being granted one-half a credit toward grad- uation. At these meetings, movies, lectures, and professional speakers are featured.

DeLeo Actually, the American Institute oflndustrial Engineers seminar is a combination of two or- ganizations-The Mechanical Engineers and the Institute of Industrial Engineers. Merged as one, the organization has two purposes: to keep the members informed on the advances in the engi- neering field, and to help the students get the feel of industry. The Seminar of Industrial Engineer- ing celebrates its birthday simultaneously with the school of Industrial Engineering. Both date back to the inception of industrial engineering at Pitt. Relaxing at numerous smokers where every- thing from football to industry is discussed is a favorite pastime of the engineers. In the spring semester, seminar members all attend the annual Senior banquet. Later, the same month, the mem- bers and their dates sponsor a picnic party for the association. Finishing their social season in grand engineering style, the men, in conjunction with the Engineering and Mines Association, plan the Cinderella Ball.

Aside from the regular curriculum, the members of ASCE sponsor picnics for association members and their dates, plus numerous parties. These social events help the seminar members to become well acquainted with each other. Once every week finds ASCE members attending meetings. Here a member can hear questions and discuss problems pertinent to the field of Civil Engineering. Leading men in the civil engineering lield are present to answer those questions and to aid in solving problems. At the various field trips held during the school year seminar members had the oppor- tunity to observe civil engineers at work. The ASCE Seminar at Pitt is not only important in subject matter but also interesting in its social calendar. Through its closely integrated program of study and relaxation, the engineers achieve an adequate scholastic background and a strong spirit of fellowship that are excellent preparations for their future careers. On December 3, the C.E's had their annual spaghetti dinner at South Park. The members of the graduating class enjoy a Professor J. B.

The Evening Students Association is made up of all students enrolled in the late afternoon, evening, and Saturday divisions of the Uni- versity. The organizations purpose is to provide both a spiritual and social program that will compliment the members' academic achievements. For the first of these, the spiritual program, the association holds special chapel services on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter, while high- lighting the social program are square dances, semi-formal affairs, and the annual candlelight dinner at which the new officers are installed. Another highlight of the year is the semi-annual Get-Acquainted Dance, held on the twelfth Hoor. The Red Tuck Shop has become the customary spot for ESA members to gather for relaxation and conversation over a cup of coffee and a cigar- CHC.

The purpose of the Institute of Radio Engi- neers at Pitt is to introduce these students to a professional society at a student level so that they can contribute to the field in their own way. This is exactly what the IRE is doing this year but they have really worked harder than ever to put this purpose across. Throughout the year they have had difTerent speakers and movies shown on this field. A meeting which was held in February had students from other schools in the district come and speak on "This Field of Radio Engineering." An inspection tour at the Westinghouse rounded out the year's program. Through good times and hard work the Insti- tute of Radio Engineers brought about another successful year, upholding its purposes so that they may go out into their field and do the best job their lives can afford.

Its purpose is to give assist- ance and guidance to any and all prelegal students in the university so that they can in time adjust themselves to the law school study curriculum. This year, headed by President Allan Reuben, was a full and busy one. It was brought to a close by a banquet held in the Faculty Club with Dean Curry of the University of Pittsburgh Law School as the main speaker. Other events were held at their monthly meetings in which many phases of the law field were discussed. The society strives toward sending men into law school who will conscientiously and intelli- gently study to try to understand the problems facing them in future years. At the present time, under the leadership of Professor VVilliam E. Sell, the faculty advisor, the society is sending many outstanding men into the field of law.

Urienting itself into life at Pitt, the Petroleum Seminar, in addition to its sessions, had an active intramural sports program with football, basket- ball, and softball teams represented. The final event of the year was a picnic early in June held in one of the county parks. Here much was discussed but the main topic of con- versation must have been petroleum and the pe- troleum industry to which men will some day belong. Petroleum men learn to combine oils, these three men are well qualified to work in the petroleum field after graduation.

The first of these preceeding the fall semester was a three day camp session at Camp Kon-O- Kwee where "Y" members helped to orient fresh- men with Pitt life. One of the University's finest projectswas the "Y's" Religion in Life Week which took place in March and featured religions and cultural leaders from all parts of the speaking world to the student body in formal and informal discus- sions. Frequently the group sponsored community service parties for the entertainment of handi- capped children and periodic forums on topics of interest. It was from these forums on Pitt's Town Meeting that Political Week developed. Besides these projects, the "Y" also sponsored monthly tours of local points of interest, and weekly discussions of biblical material. Because of these and other fine accomplishments, the YMCA finished another successful school year as one of the finest service clubs at Pitt. In the YMCA office the members of the group relax on off hours. Here Paul Schrading reads an article that seems to be of great interest to everyone. 160 The girls meet and relax in the YWCA ofiiceg here a few "Y" members have an informal committee meeting.

They present the impressive "Caritas,', a pageant interpreting the virtues in the lives of the women pictured on the Heinz Chapel windows. A United Nations Institute featured college students from represented na- tions and was climaxed by the annual Interna- tional Dinner. They sponsored all-student tours to the Pittsburgh Press, City Jail and Crime Laboratory. lVorking long hours, the girls col- lected all types of clothing to be sent to Korea and participated whole-heartedly in Religion-im Life VVeek. Socially, the girls often combined with the YMCA for Mixer Dances, Christmas parties, and a final farewell picnic in May. .

One sure sign that Pitt has once more reached the top of the football heap came as two of our three defeats were proclaimed "upsets" by the nation's press. A clean sweep of the Big Ten warmed Panther hearts as Indiana, Iowa and Ohio State fell with Notre Dame and Army among the victims. A loss to Oklahoma- had been expected, but it took our backyard rivals to tame the Pan- thers, a fired-up West Virginia and an under-rated Penn State managed to blank the jungle cats for those painful upsets. All in all though, the team showed everything the oldtime Pitt teams are said to have had. A devastating ground attack shredded some of the best lines in the country, and the passing game, although spotty, clicked often enough. For the second time in three years Pitt had an undefeated Freshman team-words to cheer any coach who is looking ahead to next year. The Pitt yearlings defeated Army Plebes 19 to 14, Navy Plebes I7 to 6, and Bullis Prep 39 to O. Perhaps even more promising than the scores was the fact that the Panther Cubs came from behind to shut out and win the first two games. Firsl Row: E. Jones, E. Hefferlc, S. Petro, L. Dawson.

Friedlund PITT'S All-AMERICANS Three members of the squad, two seniors and a sophomore, received well-deserved national rec- ognition, Captain Joe Schmidt, whom many have called as fine a line-backer as any in the pro ranks made the INS first All-American team. He also made the UP All-East team, and Collier's A11- American Specialists Team. Joe then played in the North-South Shrine Clash. Billy Reynolds, the toughest little man in football, who outgained the entire backfields of Indiana, Ohio State, Army, Notre Dame, and North Carolina State, was ig- 'SK' 176 nored by the "All's," but opened their eyes later. Joe Schmidt Reynolds was a standout on both offence and defense for the great East-West Shrine game in San Francisco, playing 5o minutes in these days of platoons, and scoring the winning touchdown. Then Billy went to Honolulu to play in two games against professional all-stars, and scored in both games to help the collegians win both. Eldred Kraemer was the only sophomore on the Look All-American first team, listed for defense. He also was chosen on the United Press all-East team with teammate Schmidt. Kraemer was a standout on both defense and offense all year. Eldred Kraemer I Billy Reynolds ha. A S w.m!N,f-A',. t. I my 3e1,..,w YM, - M. J .,kea1,TS K A A . , ,, A ' ' gwf.

Still we managed to go into half- time with a 21-I3 score after spotting the Sooners three TD's. Some idea of the Oklahoma power can be gained from the statistics, where they led Pitt by 326 yards to 128 in rushing. Pitt's own drives were impressive, going 63 yards and then 45 for scores in successive chances. Epps, Rey- nolds, and Neft carried over the TD's. Tony Romantmo It may look impossible, but Bobby Epps wiggled out of this mess and ran for 22 yards. Glen Dillon grabbed the pass for I3 against I Oklahoma. 79 Pitt 21 Notre Dame I9 Pitt 22 Army I4 Johnny Jacobs on one of his slashes through the Irish line. The Panthers really bounced back against Notre Dame in one ofthe season's greatest games. Billy Reynolds raced 79 yards from scrimmage for Pitt's first touchdown to let the Irish know they had a real game on their hands. Then Mattioli hit Jacobs for 63 yards and another score. In the second half Notre Dame came back against the worn out Panthers, but Pitt, too, was good for a 50-yard drive, and to clinch it, a safety.

Pitt West Virginia With Pitt favored by as many as four touchdowns, the underdog and un- der-rated Mountaineers held the Pitt machine scoreless for the first time this season, and, led by 17-year-old quarter- back Fred Wyant, took back a victory to jubilant West Virginia. They even won the battle of statistics equally de- cisively. Pitt spent a lot of time in West Virginia territory in the first quarter, but never hit pay dirt. After that, the play was seldom out of Panther land. An interception by Wrabley led to some hope, but nothing happened. 16-o! ! ! Joe Bozek 182 George Glagola The same story-West Virginia's defenders were too tough. Hoffman scores easily against Hoosiers. Pitt 28 Indiana 7 A maximum of finesse and a mini- mum of effort, according to the writers, went into the Pitt victory over Indiana, second Big Ten victim of the year. A great defense, led by Zombeck and Schmidt, held the Hoosiers to minus 25 yards on the ground. Indiana spent most of the 4th quarter completing passes, but not inside our 2o. The first half was marred by penalties, but sparkling run- ning by Reynolds, Mattioli, Epps, and Hoffman, plus fine blocking by Dietrick and Epps kept Pitt way ahead all the way. Bozek couldn't get him, but Fcrgy and Palatella did. Did Epps make it this time?-handoff from Neft. Al Smalara 183 . 'L. 0 -41 Bobby Epps powers to the OSU 19. Pitt 21 Ohio State I4 Pitt completed its conquest of the Big Ten by smashing Ohio State in a great running game, where a few passes really paid off. Ohio passed themselves silly-in their own territory. A Ford in- terception and run-back from the Pitt 16 to the State 24 paved the way for the first TD. Most exciting play ofthe game was a Mattioli-to-Dietrick pass on the Pitt 45, from which Dietrick staggered 55 yards through at least five defenders to score.

Wrestling Largest crowd ever to watch collegiate wrest- ling in Pittsburgh, 1,937 strong, saw a battle of the undefeated when Pitt's grapplers met Penn State to close the season. Unfortunately, State took the meet, 16-12, to end the Panther winning streak at 16. This was probably the most im- portant college wrestling event of the year, for Pitt had already beaten Michigan's Big Ten champs, as well as Army, West Virginia, and the tough small school team at Lock Haven. Two teammates went undefeated: Olympic champ Hugh Peery, 123-pounder, and Joe Sol- omon, 167-pound sophomore. Solomon now owns nine straight wins, seven by falls, and Peery has 23 straight, for a total of 31 wins against one defeat in collegiate competition. Wrestling now rates as Pitt's top sport, with a record of33 wins against I9 losses since the sport was re-established in 1950. Hugh Peery uses a single leg takcdown to put Johnny George on the mat. 1952-53 SEASON'S RECORD Pitt 25 Case 3 Pitt I7 Michigan State 9 Pitt I9 Michigan 9 Pitt 20 Army 6 Pitt 24 Purdue 5 Pitt 24 Ohio State 7 Pitt I9 Toledo 8 Pitt 34 Indiana Teachers o Pitt I6 Lock Haven 1 1 Pitt 27 West Virginia 2 Pitt I2 Penn State 16 Doing some gentle leg twisting to Dave Davis is Harry Hunter.

As a member of the Greater Pittsburgh League, which includes Tech, Duquesne, W 81 J, West Virginia and California Teachers, Pitt finished in a tie for first place in 1952, dropping the shoot-off to West Virginia. Sending two teams to the National Rifle As- sociation match last spring, the Panthers placed third and fifth, but William Noroski and Thomas Shepard, of Pitt, took first and second place in the meet. The major part of the riflemen's schedule is occupied by "postal matches," in which scores are fired for record against other teams who par- ticipate by mail. In these matches, Pitt defeated I5 teams, was outscored by 8, including Navy, Lehigh, U. of California, Wyoming, Maryland, Tennessee and Stanford.

Putting a 12-11 won-lost chart in the record book, the Pittmen out-scored, out-shot fpercentagewisej, and out-rebounded their op- ponents, committed fewer fouls, and fell behind only at the free-throw line. In fact, with only five teams defeating us by more than seven points, a better percentage at the foul line might well have put the Panthers up with the top teams of the country. Once known as "ice cream eaters," Carlson's men this year made the pages of LIFE with their oxygen tank, a new wrinkle in Doc's longtime ex- periments with the fatigue curve. The team also helped in some experiments with the new foul rules, but less successfully, as Ohio State won the experimental game at the foul line. 1952-53 SEASON RECORD Michigan 8 5 Pitt 70 West Virginia Westminster 57 Pitt -91 , Westminster Miami CO.J 65 Pitt 74 St. Louis Ohio U. 66 Pitt 66 Houston Ohio State 76 Pitt 70 Loyola Harvard 48 Pitt 56 Navy Dartmouth 61 Pitt 67 West Virginia Cornell 62 Pitt 53 Ohio State Penn '81 Pitt 69 Carnegie Tech Geneva 75 Pitt 66 Geneva Penn State 56 Pitt 53 Penn State Carnegie 52 "Overtime af!

As usual a small fast team, the Pittmen ran and shot more than ever in recent years for an average of69 points per game, and bumped seldom into trouble of big men. Don Virostek, at 6'4, was the big man this year, and his rebounding was a big factor in Panther success. Close behind came Captain Mickey Zernich, high scorer and light- weight of the team, who outran and outjumped most of his opposition to sink a total of 309 pointsg This put Zernich second only to the great Chipper Cholly Hyatt with a three-year total of 845 points, another record not to be slighted is Don Virostek's rebounding: he was fifth in the nation. Other sharpshooters were Clarence Burch, Dick Die- trick, and Art Boyd, ably seconded by Dave Dutch Burch sails under the bucket for an easy lay-up against Westminister. A, Nh- ,A:: 9 1' I fl.

Scholarship reared its stately head, no uncommon sight, of course, around Carlson teams, as Boyd was tapped to Phi Beta Kappa. The season started without too much promise, with a road loss to Michigan, a win over West- minster in the home opener, and then two close ones, a defeat by Miami and a win over Ohio University, by one and two points respectively. The team looked good, but wasn't always winning. Another loss, to Ohio State, went by before the Ivy League handed us three easier games. The Panthers took a 4-4 record east with them, and bumped into some real homer officials at Penn-after leading all the way we lost in over- time.

A one-point squeeze over favored Penn State and a romp over Carnegie Tech virtuzzlbf insured a winning season but didn't help us against West Virginia, though, as the Mountaineers poured on Q5 points to Pitt's 70. Another victory over West- minster started the winter road trip, which saw victories go to St. Louis and Loyola, by two and three points, and Navy, with only a win over Houston sandwiched in. Then came sweet revenge over West Virginia back at home, another loss to Ohio State and another Win over Tech. Finishing the season away, the Panthers in turn fell victims to revenge- hungry teams. The dist1'ict's hottest team, Ge- neva, trimmed us neatly 81-66, and the Panthers closed the season by proving that Penn State is unbeatable at home, 73-53.

Fred O'Nions set a new ECSA record in the individual 150-yard medley, and Gerry Weiss and Ronny Gainsford both set new Pitt records in the 220- and 440-free style, and 200-yard breaststroke, re- spectively.

AI: X The Panther thinclads, harriers, or just plain cross-country runners had one of Pittls top records this year, losing only one triangular meet and racking up six victories. Bernie Luterancik set a local course record as Pitt swept first five places against Westminster. Against Geneva, too, the Panthers took the first Five. Although West Vir- ginia took lirst place in record time at Morgan- town, Pitt teamwork won the match, and this feat was repeated against Ohio State. First place in the A.M.A. meet went to Pitt in November, but hard luck dogged the team in the IC4A, leaving the Panthers with a disappointing sixth place.

You also saw Joe Bendel along with Harry Camp- ney and Gene Weinstein burning up the sod with formidable 6-I records. After taking the first three matches, a Carnegie Tech group managed to squeak by the Cat 5-4. But the Panther bounced over the net to take two more. Penn State halted the'Cat again. This time 7-2.

Joan Hirsh V. Pres. Corinne Rubin Sec. Mira Wilson Debate Mgr. Barbara Niaman Adv. Mildred Ditty A discussion among the orators is in progress about the coming Penn State Poetry Festival. In loud, clear, oval shaped tones, secretary Myra Wilson reads the temporary list of activities planned by the girls in the Women's Speech Association. Included in the list were discussions, debates, tournaments, festivals, and parties. The girls worked furiously on two radio programs, a Efteen minute skit for WPGH and a half hour one for KQV. The parliamentary procedure program was organized by the girls to give help on par- liamentary rules to any interested group or or- ganization.These girls were proudoftheir thorough knowledge of this technical subject. WSA took part in many speech activities during the year. Pitt's lady orators had a wonder- ful time at the Penn State Poetry Festival. They also took an active part in a regional speech tournament among colleges of seven states and were honored to become hostesses to a group of British debators. The girls take part in one of their socials held in the Stephen Foster Social Room. A member of the Debate team prepares to answer a question on debating procedure. Menis Debate Pres. Lud Lippert V. Pres. Al Rubin Sec, Pauel Petro Treas. Ross Reese Adv, Mildred Ditty These boys are about to criticize the work of fellow debators who have just completed a rousing debate. Resolved: that Men's Debate has had a full schedule of debates, discussions, and other speak- ing activities this school year. The Men's Debate this year traveled to approximately I3 other colleges and visited IO local high schools for demonstration debates. The members also participated in intracity tour- naments in October, November, and December. The annual Pitt-Western Reserve Debates were a series of exhibition debates before high school audiences. During January the members sponsored a high school Clinic-Tournament at the university with manager Lud Lippert pre- siding. This year there were two Petro brothers in the club and one of the opposite sex, Barbara Newman. Dan Purdy was a busy member, typing up letters and forms to be sent to different high schools and colleges encouraging and planning debate programs. Firrt Row: R. Newman, D. Purdy, E. Shustcr, L.

When you hear this announcement you think of the band as a group of marching musicians, but some day these men will be doctors, lawyers, chemists, engineers, and pharmacists. Strangely enough, none of them are studying to be musicians. They practice eight hours a week, play at reviews and football games, attend classes and receive practical experience in working daily with the other band members. The spirit of the band is fraternal in nature because they have to perform as a team, not in- dividuals. They share experiences such as march- ing in the mud, sitting in the stand when the temperature is down around the twenties, and sharing a seat in the bus on a Michigan State trip. Every summer the entire organization spends a. week at Camp Kon-O-Kwee. Days there begin with eight o'clock breakfast and drill on the field until after dark. Members have blueprints of different formations and each man must know his ever important number. Behind the scenes the managers are the "work horses" of the organization. Their chief duty is to move instruments to and from the games. They contribute a great deal to the smooth operation of performances even though they don't play in- struments themselves. The Stadium Review in December is a con- cert all members look forward to . . . and the party following the review . . . is just as tremendous as the review. Belonging to the band is getting up -Saturday mornings for 9:00 rehearsal, marching until your arms and legs ache, and trying to find time to study, but it's great, ask any band member. Animated formations, like this swinging bell, characterize the Pitt Band's progressiveness in establishing a pattern for college bands all over America. l e p' :ll -- .A,. ,tk :Y Z, ' ' .2 '-4, F: I 1 . x9?'21,Ll. ... .lb :Q 0 r1.?.'.: -271,1 "Q I-'Y-L' 5,1 I .Tug : 5 .cd-f all 'ny' ,rx VM, osi1.,,'.,.: .SH ii1ltf?3sa:E,-5+'-b2l33l'1f- ip li-,.xi"fr. ? lf-W?

"Sound your A, girls, and keep your mind on the rhythm, please," pleaded Suzanne Janos, as she and the Women's Choral rehearsed for the program they were giving that week at the As- pinwall Veterans' Hospital. "We want to have it perfect before Mr. Sterne gets back." The Aspin- wall concert was just one of many the girls gave this year. They had a lovely program for Beaux Arts Day and they sang for the Women's Day and Mothers' Day Chapel Services in Heinz Chapel. And Women's Choral is always asked to sing for several of the Pittsburgh church services. What would Christmas at Pitt be like without the traditional informal caroling in the Commons Room, wondered Teresa Seboly as she waited for some other members of the group to join her there. Amidst the decorated Christmas trees and glowing fires the students joined in singing the beloved old songs, led by the Choralers, of Women's Choral.

In the late afternoon members of Glee Club could usually be found in the Tuck Shop where they held impromptu song sessions. Besides the songs on their current agenda they sang traditional college songs like "Halls of Ivy" or "The Whiflfen- poof Song" and "The Songs of Pitt" which they recorded for the school. "With this International Contemporary Mu- sic Festival coming up we've lots of work to do," said president Bob Graule. "The Drinking Song" by Vaughn Williams and "We Fight Not For Glory" from "The Testament of Freedom" by Randall Thompson were the Men's Glee Club's contribution to the festival, which featured modern songs by unknown American and foreign Cresto, G.

Carol Boyle Director Mr. Harvey Pope Hard work plus talent is the keynote ofthe Pitt Players, student dramatic group at the Uni- versity. As soon as the final curtain falls on one performance it's time to paint scenery and practice for the next production. Constantly competing with Carnegie Tech's drama department, Pitt Players as an extra-curricular activity, has as its purpose the production of good theatre and ex- perience in the techniques of theatre art. To participate in the Pitt Players the student must be a full time undergraduate and have satisfactory participation in two fields. Field A includes acting, business, publicity, make-up and sound. Field B includes scenery, costumes, lights, stage and property. To retain active membership, a player must be active in at least two productions during the school year. Plays this year included "The Time of Your Life," "The Heiress" with "Billy Budd" being produced in the Spring. In January, as a special project, the Players produced "Promethus in Pittsburgh" by Lawrence Lee, this was the first staging of this dramatic poem in Pittsburgh. The annual June banquet is another big pro- duction by the student players. New members are received into the Players and old members are awarded keys for outstanding participation, prov- ing that for Pitt Players, "the play's the thing." First Row: H. Klein, J.

Stuart Evans Adv. T. M. Finney 'lil Dr. Finney begins planning the rigid schedule of thc Heinz Chapel Choir. To belong to the Heinz Chapel Choir is to gain fifty close life-time friends. Beginning in September with four wonderful days of camping, eating and singing at Camp Lambec on Lake Erie, and continuing through the year with rehearsals on the 31st floor, the members of H.C.C. were bound together in a common purpose of making music. This year will be long remembered by the choir members: they had the honor of singing the world premiere of Ross Lee Finney's "Immortal Autumn" in the International Contemporary Music Festival, they sang for the English Room dedication, and in addition to the annual spring tour they sang many concerts for local groups in one of the heaviest schedules the choir has ever had. At a picnic at "Pop's" farm, the 'choir assembled for the last time in the 1952-53 season. Volleyball, swimming, and baseball filled the afternoon hours. But as the sun was setting, the members drew together and sang 'til they could sing no more. As their voices echoed through the mountains Dr. Finney again could say, "We have been together for a time in pastures green." First Raw: A. Stinson, N. Creasy, R. Ireland, B. McCollough, P.

For those who "just love to singn the perfect activity is the Pitt Singers. Although there are definite talent requirements for membership, the most important qualifications are a love of music and a desire to sing. Pitt Singers is made of mem- bers who meet all these requirements. Under the direction of David G. Weiss the group had quite a busy year. Among the most important events in the Pitt Singers' calendar were concerts and special programs. The group gave a performance at the Choral Jubilee along with the other singing groups on Campusg gave their An- nual spring concert at Carnegie Music Hallg then rounded out the year with a concert tour in the local area. This busy year was properly climaxed by the annual banquet at which the active singers re- ceived their reward--a key-that they will long cherish as a reminder of a wonderful year in Pitt Singers. The members of Pitt Singers concentrate on their singing in preparation for their spring concert. Perhaps the most picturesque scene in January was the Chapel blanketed by a soft snow fall. The wintery Carpet of white sprinkled over the campus like PITT IN powdered salt. 231 Q! . The need for a better method of registering the many Pitt students each semester has presented a major problem to University officials. This January cards and kits went out almost a full two weeks ahead of the actual registration. Much time and energy were saved and with a few changes, this new type of pre-registration may become permanent. Aside from all the drilling, transportation or uniform fittings, Pitt's Military Organizations do have a social aspect. The Military Ball was a successful highpoint in the fall semester. 232 'v 4 5 1.- . ii? 1 .AJ 1 1' ' Each Military Organization presented its choice for Military Ball Queen.

Student Congress After Pitt's triumphant victories over Notre Dame and Army, more high school students flocked to the stadium to see their favorite college team play West Virginia. Anxious to make the visitors feel more at home, members of Student Congress and WSGA volunteered to greet the high schoolers and distributed mimeographed copies of Pitt songs and cheers. The students made a LOUD cheering section. At the game many Pittites were surprised to hear the high school bands playing "Hail to Pitt." This was another idea of Student Congress in conjunction with Druids. They printed and sent out copies of the song to all local high schools to promote better public relations. The Blood Bank came to Pitt in November sponsored by the Congress members. There were many students and faculty members wearing "I Gave" tags for two days. The local governing group played an im- portant part in the numerous controversial issues this year concerning the welfare of their fellow students. One debate that gained a great deal of publicity was the question of permitting wives of football players and students to sit in the reserved student section and permission for reduced rates for those husbands and wives who did not attend school. Pres. Jack Burwinkel V. Pres. Gene Rock Sec. Jean Hill Treas. Danny Berger Adv. Charles Elliott Deep in thought, members of Student Congress study the plans for the coming year. 9. After numerous ideas and suggestions are made, the Social Committee tries to come to a decision. The Christmas dance committee finally agreed on plans for the December formal annually held in the Commons Room. '7'7"l Fostering social as well as political life, Stu- dent Congress sponsored four student dances this year. The Commons Room Ball, a Fitting climax to the Christmas festivities, was a huge success. Dozens of bedecked Christmas trees and even a student Santa Claus added to the gay evening. The biggest project that Student Congress governs during the year is Spring Carnival Week. It is the duty of members to keep things running smoothly and see that everyone has a lot of fun. They worked with the fraternity and sorority members and accomplished a tremendous job. The Main Ball on Friday Night during Festival Week was the grand climax to carnival and an- other school year. Congress presented gold cups to the top shows during the carnival and promised bigger and better things for next year-confirming the fact that they're true politicians. The executive committee meets in Mr. El- liott's ofhce to discuss the problem of more women to be admitted to Student Congress.

Jack Hardman When Freddie Freshman enters Pitt, Men's Council is ready to orient him to college life. They circle his neck with a blue and gold tie and make threats if he doesn't wear it always. Then they shove him in front of a vast football crowd to pull on a rope against the sophomores so he can take the tie off. If Freddie wants a used book he goes to the Men's Council Bookstore on the eighth floor. When Freddie goes to a freshman mixer dance he sips cider and dances to records furnished by his teacher, pal, friend, and master-Men's Council. Freddie soon learns the value of money and when he finds himself short of cash, MC Student Loan Fund is more than willing to help him out. If he has a check for less than 35.00 he can cash it at MC cashing service. Should Freddie want to play ping pong or cards or just relax, he can go to the men's lounge on the eighth floor maintained by Men's Council. Through Council he is able to see movies of Pitt's football games. The members of MC are on their toes constantly-always lending a helping hand to Freddie Freshman. l 1 - l Fir.rt Row: L.

W Dick Rom:1n's solution to recovering stolen items from the fraternity houses is met with humorous defeat. The Phi Ep's came through collecting the most canned food for St. Barnabas Home and the GAR Home at Thanksgiving. "How many here have ever been inside the downtown YWCA?" asked Dick Roman with a mile-wide grin on his face. "If you haven't, you soon will be," added Lud Lippert at a meeting of Inter-Fraternity Council, "because we are going to paint some of the rooms for the girls." And in December they did just that. With a little help from' some of the girls the boys mixed the paint and artistically spattered it on the walls. At Thanksgiving the frats collected canned food for the St. Barnabas Home and the GAR Home. Phi Ep's collected the most but two of their boys were arrested for collecting food without a permit. The Inter-Fraternity athletic program got off to a great start in the fall. Many outstanding football games were played up at Schenley Oval and the Delta Tau Delta's turned out to be top team this year, walking away with the champion- ship. Greek Week sponsored jointly by IF Coun- cil and Panhellenic Council in the fall featured a progressive dance at the different fraternity and sorority houses. IF also included many socials and smokers during the year, but their biggest affair was the traditional IF formal where the queen of all fraternities was crowned.

The music was provided by the Panl-lel Choir, two girls representing each sorority. And the director, Dorothy Jacob, tookva deep sigh of relief after all the songs were sung---long hours of practice had paid off! The sorority girls at Pitt don't need to worry about Leap Year because every March there is the PanHel formal Ball and the girls invite the boys. This Ball honors the pledges ofeach sorority and they are all presented with pretty white gardenias by the Council: In the spring of the year Audrey Cohen was busy working with Interfraternity Council planning the PanHel-IF Sing.

Highlight of the gathering was a hilarious skit by a group of fellow seniors. Look- ing at the present and into the future the Women's Class of '53 sponsored a series of Senior Seminars. Uppermost in their minds was who would be Senior Queen. But up came the Interclass Sing and everyone busied herself to make their last bid in the popular Sing the most successful.

A luncheon, a dinner, a western get-together and perhaps the crowning achievement, their own Junior song, combined to make two semesters of fun and happy memories for the Class of '54. It all began with the Junior Roundup. The Juniors westernized the twelfth floor with ten-gallon hats and bright plaid shirts. Then came the buffet luncheon before Christmas. Between 11:00 and Izoo, so that all could come, the Juniors spent an unforgettable afternoon together. Never tiring of eating, the Juniors invited their nursing school classmates to join in the Junior Dinner. With President Doris Hart as toastmistress, the class of '54 gathered for the last time as Juniors to close out their third thrilling year at Pitt. And mixed with the memories of the luncheon and dinner will be recollections of the Inter-Class Sing, the Heart Hop and many, many more ac- tivities.

Freshman Council "The Freshman Council serves as the co- ordinating group for the activities of the freshman women. It considers questions of general interest to all freshman women. It is the body that decides the freshman class policies." This is the definition of Freshman Council as it is listed iii the Vade Mecum, and this year the Freshman Council was a group ofthirty-six girls who put these definitions into real actions. When girls first enter the University they are new and very strange. Through deans' conferences 1 , , S 3 . X q Freshman Council go over their script for the skit for the Inter-Class Sing. the girls become acquainted with each other and meet some of the upperclassmen who help to initiate them into their four years of college life. During the month of September, Dean Rush sponsored a dinner for the Freshman Council, girls chosen form the thirty-six deans' conference groups. These girls on the Council act as a con- necting link between deans' conferences. At Inter-Class Sing, the freshman women compete with the upperclass women in originality and talent. This year they had as their chairman and counselor Rosemarie Feil, vice president of WSGA. At the end of their freshman year the council girls nominate their sophomore class ofiicers, and have the feeling that they are now full fledged Pittites. Fin! Row: M. Devlin, A. Paramenko, R.

Each year all the fraternities ofthe University of Pittsburgh hold a joint Inter-fraternity Ball This time, as in past years, each fraternity selected a girl who was their candidate for the title of Sweetheart and Queen.

These students worked long and late with little praise and less compensation in order to record a. year's events for the Owl. The black cloud was personified in Editor Barbara Millen and Business Manager Karl Meyers, who heckled, begged, screamed, and 254 prayed for the staff' to "meet the deadline." Faced with increased expenses in printing and covers, a loss of revenue from the medical school and a reduction in senior enrollment which af' fected the circulation, Karl Meyers and his small staff handled the tough problem of financing the Owl. Mark Friedman, Circulation Manager, tack- led the problem of having to sell Owl: to a greater percentage of seniors than ever before in order to compensate for the reduction in enrollment and to satisfy the budget. cizmv -.

Here she puts her hands to the typewriter and comes through with the needed copy. Jack Caldwell, Mr. Photographer ofthe Owl, spent most of the year squinting at people be- hind lenses. When he wasn't squinting, he was straining to see in the dark room. QS! Q lgjlg ,..4 Plans and layouts for the Owl were drawn up during the summer by Editor Barbara Millen, with the assistance of Gloria Heneghan, Managing Editor. With the first week of school the editorial staff began work. Joan Franz distinguished her- self by meeting a deadline all by herself. Joan sent in the first sixteen pages of her sorority section in October completing the first deadline. Taking nearly fifteen hundred pictures, the small pho- tography staff headed by Jack Caldwell was haunted with photo assignment sheets given them by Phyllis Kephart, Photo-Editor. With the idea that livelier copy would increase student reader- ship, Joan Stigers, Literary Editor, tried to make the copy as appealing as possible. As fast as Joan could turn out copy, Cynthia Aberman, the O'wl'.v record breaking head typist, typed it to be sent to the printer. Don Gwillim whose every other sen- tence was, "But Barb, I made the picture assign- ments!" took over the Fine Arts section in the middle of the year and in spite of this handicap, did a remarkable job. Another difficult assign- ment, the Organization Section, was handled by Dahlia Katz. With no previous experience in year- book production work, Dahlia learned quickly and proved to be a capable editor. In addition to help- ing Dahlia, Joe Banik, the Owl staff humor man, performed the unheard of feat of keeping Barb laughing. In January, when the portrait pictures, over a thousand of them, came, the whole staff began pasting pictures to help Dotty Hudson, Classes Editor, with her section. The staff cele- brated the making of that deadline with a shower for Dotty who left in February to be married. With little help from anyone, Danny Berger did a wonderful job with the fraternity section, Danny concentrated on getting pictures of frat affairs, and with the cooperation ofthe photograhpy staff, who sacrificed many Friday and Saturday evenings to take pictures, was able to get a good coverage of fraternity affairs. Comptroller for the Owl as well as the Sky- scraper Engineer, Jim Alster kept the records straight for all of us. Phyllis Kephart checks one of the thousands of photo assignment sheets which passed through her hands while Chuck Seaton looks on for the explosion when Kep discovers there are three pictures scheduled for Izoo-and all the photographers are in class. 256 1 ..

In addition to handling the athletic section, a pesky assignment in itself, Chuck Suproek learned to take pictures in order to help out the under- manned photography staff. Doris Secor did all of the art work in the book and helped with many of the special layouts. In order to get a complete and accurate coverage for the special picture stories, Shirley Schiffman watched the bulletin boards and Pit! News faithfully. As oflice manager, Clare Cooper took care ofexchange books and collecting questionnaires from organizations-a real headache Clare discovered. As handy man around the oHice and chief paster of pictures, Paul Gilliland moved from staff to staff giving assistance wherever needed. These students, with the aid of their small staffs, frustrated by missing pictures, negatives, names and questionnaires, plagued by schoolwork undone, deviled byjangling alarm clocks, hindered by colds and flu, and saddened by family deaths managed to meet every deadline so the Owl could once again come out on time. When the portraits came back from Chidnofl"s, Paul Gilliand became chief picture paster, and if it hadn't been for his per- sistence and patience there would have been one deadline missed. 7... Dotty Hudson, Class Editor, spent most of Christmas vacation looking for missing pictures, but in spite of the seeming impossibility of keeping track of over a thousand pictures and names, Dotty did it-and in the final check the section was in perfect order.

The Pitt News went into the Fall semester shooting for its ninth straight ACP All-American Award. Under Editor-in-Chief John Kulamer, a board of seven assistant editors and a staff of 40 reporters and production personnel took on the job of bringing before Pitt's undergraduate stud- ents the highlights of the daily goings on at Sky- scraper U. By far the biggest news break was the rise of the Panthers to pre-eminence on the na- tional football scene. Reporter Russ Franke's colorful accounts ofthe team in training and on the playing fields earned him the plaudits of many professional sports writers. Sports Editors Boris Weinstein travelled with the team on many away games, and besides bringing back material for his twice weekly columns, did service as a spotter for Sporitscaster Ray Scott on the side. John Kulamer, Boris Weinstein, and Nancy Cook discuss a completed edition of the Pit! Newx. s Z1 The members ofthe business staff talk over new methods for obtaining better distribution. Other highlights that kept News staffers hopping were Political Week, and the weekly doings of the various student government bodies. Earning special praise for good, sharp reporting were staffers Dave Green, John De Ninno, Elinore Stone, Barbara Schwartz, and Nancy Cook. Meanwhile, the business staff, under the direction of Business Manager Stanley Goldmann .z:.2::il' L M.,,,.-,f..,u-yq,..-- K H T"-'QA .

The spring issue of last year's Panzlzcr, a parody of True Confesxiom, evoked student and administrative action that re- sulted in the banning ofthe magazine. A few weeks later, the Publications Board established a new magazine which was to be "photo-feature" and "non-satiricalv in nature. Gene Weinstein, sports editor of the old Panlher, finally ended up in the editor's chair of the new magazine, while Dan Purdy, another member of the Edgewood Gang, was promoted from his circulation manager's job of the previous year to become business manager. Weinstein and Purdy claimed that they would operate under the slogan, "Dan and Gene will keep it clean." Jay tries his hand at drawing a front page cover for the next issue. Richard dictates some last minute copy to Jane, who is quite a typist. PGIIIUUJL migz f I V .0 M: TM! l Many students lamented the passing of the ribald humor, while others favored the new prod- uct over the old. Whatever the reaction was, al- most everyone agreed that the new magazine was new. The emphasis was focused on photo-stories and articles about the school. Some of the articles in particular, aroused considerable student com- ment. The bulk of the photo-stories were handled by Al Horowitz, while Dick Price, the managing Firsl Row: A. Horowitz, I.

The second complete year for the Skyscraper found the magazine an established campus institution, more than fulfilling the hopes of the E 81 M Association, the Publications Board, and other early friends and sponsors of the publication. Although sold chiefiy through the seminars in the schools of Engineering and Mines, the magazine was widely read at Pitt, and had an exchange and mail circu- lation which carried the name of Pitt and abilities of its students over the entire country. Such arti- cles as "Underground Gasificationu made popular reading, only exceeded by the ever-present joke page. These two boys try their hand at pasting layouts for their next issue. Q. fun Edger Daer tells the boys that this issue is one of the best ever printed. 51:715- 'GST' The new headquarters and editorial offices behind the Pitt News on the eighth floor of the Cathedral brought the staff down off the hill with the other publications, which proved of great help to Bill McCoy, Managing Editor, and his pro- duction stafl'-Bill Rimmell and Cas Bazis-- working out the page plans of Layout Editor Edgar Daer.

A neat lithographed magazine, edited by Ray Dessy and Dennis Karlheim, the Capxulc is the monthly publication of the student branch of the American Pharmaceutical Associa- tion at the University. As such, it reports current professional news and activities for the practicing pharmacist as well as student life. Monthly features with high readership are the "Greeks' Corner" for the professional pharmacy fraterni- ties and sororities, "Detailing Briefs," a column keeping up to date with the latest in therapeutics, and, ofcourse, "Alumni News" and "Pharmacy In Other Lands." A recently begun series, "Meet Your State Board" and "Pa Pitt's Pharmacists" together have brought interesting articles on members of the Board and the many pharma- ceutical activities of the tri-state-Pittsburgh area. These staff members check to make sure that all the copy is correct. Dr. Claus helps these staff members find some pertinent information for the next issue.

It seems as though the Delt's want to add some blue ribbons to their well-filled trophy case. 9.72 1952-53 was the year of improvements for president Leo Kairys and the Bayard Street Delt's. The progressive dance during the homecom- ing weekend was also a housewarming for the Delt's. Men of Delta Tau Delta worked all sum- mer to redecorate the interior of their house. White oak paneling and a pale green wall-to-wall rug were added to the living room. Other improve- ments were indirect fluorescent lighting and a new spinet piano. Several of the upstairs rooms and a hallway were replastered and painted contrasting shades. Black tile was laid and all of the downstairs furniture recovered in red and blue leather. A decisive victory over Sigma Chi in the Inter-Fraternity football league finals returned the trophy to the Delt mantel, a place where it has often been. This was only one of the honors won by the Delt's in a highly successful year for them. First Row: G. Huzor, R. Joyce, J. English, D. Krupcr, D.

"Buzzy" Robbins was a cheerleader, Larry Paper was Interfraternity Chairman of the Ath- letic Manager Committee and Art Hershkowitz was editor of the "Skyscraper Engineer." Second place in scholarship and second place in volleyball were trophies won by the "Nu's."

This Fifth Avcnuc spot was best known to Pitt's incoming freshman class of 1956. '2 Pitt's Lambda Chi's joined with over one hundred forty brother chapters in the spring to celebrate forty-three years of growth and prog- ress. Notables of the Greek world gathered in each chapter house throughout the nation to reminisce about past years and to plan for the future. An especial tribute was paid to honorary Harry S. Truman, retiring president of the United States. Success on a national level was carried over into the local chapter. Lambda Chi Alpha at Pitt was strongly represented in many and di- verse activities: Newman Howard, in addition to leading Lambda Chi, was an outstanding shot for the rifle team, Al Braun was a member of the OWL staff and Heinz Chapel Choir, Steve Pas- trick was a cheerleader, Fran Pomilio was bowling chairman for the Inter-Fraternity athletic league. Social highlight was their Winter Formal held at the Colonial Manor Inn. Closing ceremonies included singing popular Lambda Chi songs, in- cluding "We're All Good Fellows."

Couples dressed in Bohemian costumes danced in the dimly lighted game room to "Le Jazz Hot." The musicians were "Pig Allee" imports sent to Pittsburgh especially for the occasion. Phi Delta Theta under the competent direc- tion of president Bill Forsythe was host again in November to Sigma Chi and Beta Theta Pi of Carnegie Tech at the annual Miami Triad Formal. This affair commemorates the founding of the three fraternities at Miami of Ohio University. Crowned at the dance intermission with the singing of Pennsylvania Iota's sweetheart song was Carolyn Roberts, 1953 Phi Delt sweetheart. A host of Phi Delt's were named to member- ship in campus honoraries. Outstanding tappee was Dick Deitrick who was awarded membership in Omicron Delta Kappa, activities fraternity. Phi 'Delta Theta had as active members two other varsity football players, Bill Kennedy and Ray FCFQISOU, a defensive linebacker who spent most of Saturday afternoons in his opponents' back field. 2 Favorite spot on the Progressive Dance circuit was the Phi Delt house.

Another man demanded, "Who has my white bucks?" All this frantic effort on the part of the Phi Ep's was in preparation for the annual visit of the national oHicers. The inspecting officers came and went. Presi- dent Ron Ecker was voted the honor of "Under- graduate ofthe Year." So with honors received and button-down collars just a little limp, the Phi Ep's went back to their regular routine. Stu Kline went to play- ing football, Boris Weinstein returned to his sports editor job on the Pitt News and Jay Garber climbed back into his Panther costume in time to perform for the Penn State game.

These were the famous words of politician and Phi Kap president, Joe Connor, to his fellow politician, fraternity brother, and Student Con- gress president, Jack Burwinkel. Politics was just one phase of Phi Kap ac- tivities this year. Fall semester socials opened with the Phi Kap, Phi Ep, and Theta Chi costume party. Little trinkets such as twenty-one jewel wristwatches were given as prizes for the best costume. In November, Major Charles O'Riordan, senior quartermaster of the Pitt ROTC corps was inducted as an honorary member of Phi Kappa. Christmas week was the orphans' party at the house on Dithridge Street. The affair was a success until two of the little visitors tried to play lumberjack with the Christmas tree. The semester ended on a formal note. The men of Mu chapter gave a traditional dinner honoring their house mother for her help and un- derstanding during the 1952-53 year.

X The PiKA's and the Tri Dclt's got together again this time for Homecoming decorations. Dinner at the House gives the PiKA athletes a chance to fill up on filet mignon. 86 During the days of the postwar veteran rush Pitt's Pi Kappa Alpha chapter had over a hundred members. Finding that much can be accomplished with so many actives the PiKA's have maintained their standing as the largest house on campus. Being so big the PiKA's do everything in a big way. A climax deluxe was walking off with the Interfraternity All-Point Trophy. This year the "Pika's" won a fast finish in spring athletics, which included a first place in softball. Winter formal time found the Pi Kappa Alpha's snowshoeing out to Chartiers Country Club where they honored their "53" choice for Dream Girl. After the dance everyone drove back to town for an early morning bacon and eggs breakfast. Other big affairs were a homecoming and a Christmas dance in the Norse Room of the Fort Pitt Hotel. Big PiKA men on Campus were John Wall- hausser, Secretary of Men's Council and John Mamaux, Sophomore member of the Intra-Mural athletic manager's committee.

A call for a "change" sounded from a bugle over the Hat sports plain of Schenley Oval. Min- utesilater taps were sounded. Was it a local ROTC maneuver? No, the occasion was the Pi Lam foot- ball victory over the Phi Ep's for the first time in many years. Later bugles were exchanged for trumpets and soft music at the Highland Country Club, scene ofthe winter formal. Other victories were celebrated by Pi Lambda Phi throughout the year. Included was an honor- able mention in the homecoming house decoration contest. President Larry Adler built a Pitt football player kicking a helpless Hoosier over a goal post. The motif was labeled "Kick 'Em in the End Zone." Al Horowitz had his own personal victories. As an associate editor of the "new" Panther, he saw the Pitt feature magazine improve and pros- per with each edition. Outstanding Pi Lam's who led campus ac- tivities were Karl Meyers, hardworking business manager of the Owl and Joe Trattner of the YMCA cabinet. 289 The Pitt Varsity certainly obliged their Pi Lam rooting sec- tion with some good swift kicks.

A dinner table conversation among several brothers of Sigma Alpha Epsilon brought up inter-fraternity social relations. "Every fraternity on campus should be better known to other chapters," said prexy Bob Scott. "Agreed!" lchimed in "veep",Tug Brenner. So Pitt's SAE's started a project that ended in an early spring stag party at North Park, with the Phi Gam's, Delt's, and Sig Chi's. On the other hand, women had their moment at the Sig Alph indoor hayride. No smoking was allowed as hay was piled waist deep on the game room floor. Corn shocks and pumpkins were scattered about for decorations. The social tempo was maintained at both the winter and spring formals. Time out was taken for activities and the SAE's moved into several prominent positions on the eighth fioor in the Cathedral. Tom Piemme and Dick Roman were officers on the Inter-Fra- ternity Council. Piemme was the News Editor of the Greek World and Roman was also tapped to sophomore activities, the Druids. 291 Famous alumnus looks down approvingly on happy SAE's.

"Sammy" pledges, instead of going through hazing, gave their time to charity organizations. They col- lected clothing for under-priviledged families in Pittsburgh slum areas. The active chapter joined with the pledges and built a game room in the cellar and installed a ladies' powder room. Sigma Alpha Mu's sleight ride in December was the highlight of their winter social season. The lack of snow was no handicap to the brothers who threw hay in the back seats of several con- vertibles and drove through the rural countryside . . . a winter hayride, no less. President Sid Finkel's fraternity men were among the most active on the Pitt campus this year. Leading the Sammies in the extra curricular field were Harvey Rabinowitz, manager of the varsity basketball team, Mel Frost, treasurer of Men's Council and Mark Friedman, circulation manager of the Owl.

Each year the Sigma Chi's gather round some lovely young lady at their spring formal and designate her as the campus sweetheart of Sigma Chi. This year Beta Theta chapter honored blond Anna Mae Pagano with the title and the Norman Cross of white roses that goes with it. A well known sweetheart fits in with Pitt's Sig's, for activities would not be activities without their earnest efforts. Joe Marasco was a member of Student Congress and Elmer Shuster was in- ducted into Omicron Delta Kappa and was past president ofthe Druids. A varsity athlete was Irv Spangler, member ofthe track team.

Ever since the founding of Sigma Phi Epsi- lon in 1901, this fraternity has been one of the out- standing examples ofthe friendly spirit which the University emphasizes in all its social activities. The willingness of each one of its forty-five active members to cooperate in all ways is hard to top. All during the year, an active interest was maintained in many different phases of Campus life. Their booth for the spring carnival took first place and they were very proud to claim the honor of fraternity basketball section champs. Individu- ally they were well represented: Fred Benson was an active member of Men's Councilg Bill Starn claimed membership in Alpha Phi Omegag and Jim Nagy copped the presidency of Pitt's Ski Club. But perhaps what they themselves might consider their most progressive achievement was the annual Christmas party which they held for some fifty orphans. There can be no doubt that the pin which Sigma Phi Epsilon members wear so proudly is a true symbol of this group-the fraternity with a "heart." Here are two Sig Ep's who played down to their last shirt The new fraternity house was a great help to the rushing pro- gram. W. Ewing, W. Volk, G. See, R. Squire, D. Troyer. 0d.f..,fv.

Featured was a "Model T" Ford with moving wheels. Surround- ing the display lighted with neon were three grave stones representing Iowa, Army, and Notre Dame, previous Panther football victims. En- tered as co-sponsor with Theta Chi was Beta Sig- ma Omicron sorority. After homecoming, the Theta Chi's shifted their "Ford" into high gear and entered as strong contenders in the Inter-Fraternity competition. Participating in the "B" section of the newly divided basketball league, Alpha Beta finished well up the line. High octane men in Pitt activities were Lud Lippert, president of the Inter-Fraternity council and Gene Rock, member of Student Congress. Theta Chi's sweetheart, Ruth Roth, was crowned at their annual sweetheart dance. Other socials were an orphans' party for the children of St. Paul's Orphanage, held at Christmastime, and the annual French Apache dance. 2 The championship homecoming decorations showed a Ford in Indiana's future.

These goals are high ones but they are furthered every day by members of Alpha Phi Alpha at Pitt. This year, led by Larry Green, a house re- decorating plan went on, clearing the way for elaborate rushing parties which included a dance and two fine dinners. The Coronation formal in the Spring was one of the best ever held. At the formal the fraternity sweetheart was crowned adding the final touch to the affair and the school year. Inspiration for the entire year was received at the national convention held in Cleveland. With the friendships made here the brothers are firmly convinced that their lofty goals can be met. 3oo OI Pres. Nick Skarvelis V. Pres. Al Reuben Sec. Ed Stasiak Treas.

In the Fall KBPhi took in the largest pledge class in its short history, and one ofthe largest on campus. Rushing was far from the high spot during the school year, as a, well-planned social program gave the brothers and pledges everything they wanted in socials. A Hobo party, committee.

The first of three particularly note- worthy activities was the Intro Ball, in October, at which Negro freshmen were introduced to Pitt's social life. Then in December of the year, Mabel Book- ert, representative from Alpha Kappa Alpha, participated in the Christmas Bouli' in Cleve- land, Ohio. The Bouli' is the national convention of AKA and five other fraternities and sororities. Besides the business meetings, Mabel had time to attend many dances, parties, and other con- vention social affairs. At the end of the school year, the girls pre- sented a fifty dollar check to the Termon Avenue Home for Colored Children. All in all, the 1952-53 year of the Pittsburgh chapter ofAKA was highly successful, for the sisters spent the season helping themselves by helping others.

Egkxxvix The AEPhi Fathers' Day dinner and Moth- ers' Day luncheon have become a tradition on the Pitt campus. One of the few sororities on campus celebrating these two days, they make many plans to give due tribute to their mothers and fathers -even to the extent of writing poetry. As part of their social life, the AEPhi's en- joy the annual Mid-Winter Frolic with their dates at one of the local ballrooms. And then there was the IF picnic. The Delt's are still talking about that southern fried chicken and chocolate cake. The sorority girls proved to the Delt's that they are handy when it comes to kitchen work. Again this year the girls are supporting a war orphan in another country, a little garcon in France. Due to the generosity of the AEPhi's, now this child has many mothers. Audrey Cohen, president of Pan-Hel, has created "close fellowship among the women at Pitt" by her industrious efforts and progressive alterations in Pan-Hel council, 1959.-53. It must be contagious because there isn't a friendlier group of girls than the AEPhi's at Pitt. Alpha Epsilon Pi "Hurry up and get your coat, Arlene. Wc'll be late for our tea dance."

The KKG girls left school for summer vacations knowing that they had a right to be proud. The Kappa's believe that cheer and happi- ness should be shared with others. At Christmas time in their beautiful blue room, they enter- tained the out of town girls who live in their sorority house. By trimming a large tree, opening pretty presents, and serving good things to eat, the Kappa's made many new friends. A few days later the sorority was hostess to orphans at an afternoon party.

L A N D --M A R K S the very beginning, when Pittsburgh was only a cluster of cabins at the Point, two dreams stirred its soul--a splendid, surging materialism, and a yearning for cultural growth. That these two have achieved a happy symbiosis is brilliantly expressed today in the Cathedral of Learning. 0 It could have been a temptation, in this town of teeming potentialities, to concentrate solely on the practical. Wealth always burgeoned here-in farm products, coal. iron, glass, oil, and steel. Any man with horse-sense and a right good will to work, could wrest a fortune from the wilderness, seemingly overnight. 0 This city was singularly blessed though, by the quality of the people who came here in search of a fuller life. They recognized early a need for the specialized type of training our industries would require. But they wished, for their sons and daughters, much more than this. With William Penn they believed that "good and commendable learning is to be preferred before wealth." 0 A succession of such great men-founders, trustees, chancellors, teachers, and alumni-have steered our university's destiny from the log cabin Academy of 1787 to the Cathedral of today. Under their vigil has grown up a special type of university that marries, in its wide curriculum, both the cultural and the practical. The Cathedral of Learning, itself a uniquely American architectural expression, is a symbol of a uniquely American type of education. 0 Also uniquely American was the early development of the food manu- facturing business. For more than three generations we have been preparing ready-to-serve delicacies to save the time and effort of America's housewives. H. I.

'. '...53 A classical motif has drawn together the diverse sections of the 1953 Owl. In the opening pages there are photographs or drawings of the Winged Victory of Samo- thrace, Pan charmed by the spirit of Music, three types of Greek columns, the Thinker. The book attempts to em- phasize the value of the faculty to the University, and through the classical motif to suggest their intellectual and cultural contributions. On each sub-division page there is a person or symbol, Roman or Grecian in origin, and a photograph which are reproduced and an explanation of both the symbol and the picture is given. A second unifying factor in the 1953 Owl is the se- quence of time. This factor is also depicted by art work: modern conceptions of the Zodiac symbols are presented in the opening picture story and are repeated throughout the book in the picture stories.

These people, although unknown to the general student body, are old friends of the Owl staff. They know the University only as it is at night, not a hustling, bustling madhouse as it is during the day, but a silent, serene, eerie structure which must be watched by night and cleaned hy morning. They are a small but necessary part of the huge ma- chinery which is the University of Pittsburgh. Through the night they work, cleaning up, wash- ing the black boards Ca job we used to race for when we were kidsl, scrubbing the elevator floors Cwe bet you never noticedj, and making the Ca- thedral a shining place in which to carry on our daily activities. W'e of the Owl staff, who often must work into the wee hours of the morning, feel that we are fortunate to have the opportunity to get to know these people as more than another face in the mass of faces or another pair of feet that walk through the halls. Because they have been so friendly and co-operative with us and be- cause they are great people, we feel that they deserve this recognition. One of our oldest friends is Jim Seymore. Jim runs the elevator during the night and is very helpful by depriving us of the pleasure of walking up eight floors to the office. We will never forget his thoughtfulness and concern for our welfare. Foreman Bill Fowler and his assistant Larry Riley, two more of the mid- night staff at Pitt, work hard through the night but always find time to , - -5' A familiar personality to the Owl staff is ludell-1 Rose who cleans the stop in and joke with us.

The 1953 Owl would not be complete without thanking a few of the people without whose help, advice and encouragement the book could never have been produced. First and foremost on my list of people who deserve thanks are the forty-two loyal students who worked long hours, giving up many free weekends, to make this year's Owl "the best ever." Of these forty-two, special mention must go to Gloria Heneghan, who undertook the task of managing the editor. Gloria did a wonderful job consoling and cajoling the editor. No editor could have been as fortunate as I was in having such a capable and good-natured business manager as Karl Meyers. Operating on a deficit budget, Karl's efforts were successful in giving the Owl a sound financial basis and in keeping the editor laughing-even when he cut expenses. To Cynthia Aberman, Dan Berger, Jack Caldwell, Clare Cooper, Joan Franz, Don Gwillim, Dahlia Katz, Phyllis Kephart, Shirley Schiffman, Doris Secor, Joan Stigers, and Chuck Suprock, I can only say humbly, without you the book and I as well, would have floundered and failed. Mention of these staff members is not meant to exclude the many others both on the business and editorial staffs who contributed to the success of the 1953 Owl. Wm. J. Keller Inc. again did a fine job in printing the Owl, and of the many people at Keller's who were willing advisers to me, special thanks must go to Mrs. Jewell M. Gates and Mr. Donald L. Messinger. Thanks, Jewell and Don, for being so considerate, listening to my problems and answer- ing my many questions. This year's cover is not just another cover, it is, rather, another fine example of S. K. Smith Co. covers which are distinct and beautiful in design and quality. Many thanks to Mr. Ralph Benz for his invaluable advice to me in the selecting and designing of a cover which is in good harmony and taste with the book. Group and portrait pictures were again taken by Chidnoff Studios. A vote of thanks must go to Mr. Frank O'Neill and Mr. Norman Pell for their ready assistance in helping the staff make the big January deadline and also to photographers Jack Mitchell, Frank Stoehr, and sales representative Irene Blumenthal, whose cooperation and friendliness was greatly appreciated. For Mr. Theodore M. Biddle's encouragement and'help a mere thanks can hardly suffice. In fact, the entire Dean of Men's staff and secretaries were an invaluable source of information and willing assistance not only to me, but the entire staff. Without the constant advice and help ofthe Director ofStudent Publications, Dr. Denton Beal, the 1953 Owl could certainly never have been produced. Thanks to you, D.B., and Mildred also, for your ready assistance in tight squeezes and for your sincere interest in the editor's health and welfare. Mr. Thomas Jarrett, the University Photographer, supplied us with many pictures and gave professional advice to our own photographers. Many thanks, Mr. Jarrett. Jane Shaw from the News Service helped the staff many times when we needed information and pictures in a hurry. Thanks, Jane. In spite of the fact that Leizer Balk, last year's editor, was hundreds of miles away, he never lost interest in the '53 Owl. Leiz was a reliable source of information and a staunch supporter and Cl'1COl1I'3.gCI'. Lack of space limits my mentioning more of the friends-the publications people, the Theta's, Mortar Board members, "Pop," the Heinz Chapel Choir-who bore with me, encouraged me, and who never lost faith in me. To all of you I can only say, thanks. Last, but most important, I would like to say a very special thanks to my family, who, although they saw next to nothing of me for eleven months, never ceased to be my most loyal supporters and constant source ofencouragement and strength. With sincerity I say that without these friends, the 1953 Owl could never have been produced. And now, as I turn over this office, this desk, and this typewriter to the 1954 editor,I wish him, or her, a world of luck and good friends to help him make the 1954 Owl "the best ever."
