HEN WE, the graduates of the University of Pittsburgh in 1953, are given to
reflection, we may well recall the outstanding events that took place in our senior
year. 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
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
"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

To the 1953 OIL staff,
I was delighted when I heard
that you are dedicating the Year Book this spring to Dr. Theodore
ll. 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,

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.
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

The teacher-student relationship is one tra-
dition carried down through the centuries in-
tact from the medieval universities to those of
today. Here Dr. ffames Tze-Chien Liu, of
the history department, preserves tradition,
informally, with his students in the Tuck
', K M ,-
At Pitt, too, the faculty can never grow too
far from the 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
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

Too often, perhaps, are these great city uni-
versities thought of as gigantic trade schools.
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

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-
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
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

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

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
The Faculty Club, in fact, is the only place
where the faculty can escape from the ubiqui-

The Alumni Council
Greetings to '53,
To you who are graduating in 1953 I bring the
congratulations of the General Alumni Association
ofour great University and a most cordial welcome
to membership with us. 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,
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.

Florence Horn, a pre-med senior in the College, visits with Dean Craw-
ford to check requirements for medical school. QBy the way, Flo was
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.
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.
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.

O'Hara Streetg the center portion of this new building will contain six
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.

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.

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.

Dean Lanfear and Paul Hillier, an accounting major in the School of
Business Administration, confer in the Dean's office,
Paul, Eugene Miles, and Karl Meyers, all students in Bus Ad, practice
operating a Friden Calculator.
Paul attends a meeting of Alpha Kappa Psi, honorary Business Adminis-
tration Fraternity. The organization is open to male students only.
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
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.

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.
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.

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.

The Dent students are given thorough instruc
Pitt's school of Dentistry has always had the
objective of training students in the diagnosis,
treatment, and prevention of oral diseases, and
the enabling ofthe student to meet effectively the
responsibilities of dental practice. 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-

The student nurses trim the tree for thc arrival of Saint Nick.
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.

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
visiting speakers in pharmacy and its allied fields,
stimulating seminars, and visits to pharmacy
laboratories provide a full schedule for these stu-
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.

Professor Walter Sobotka shows future retailing
executives the construction of fabrics.
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.

Retail students study in the world's largest library of books
'md periodicals exclusively on retailing subjects.
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
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.
This student is taking a quick glance between classes to keep
up with the world of retailing news and fashion.
Although the 1953 Owl is thought of primarily as
the seniors' book, it is also important to the under-
Two underclassmen make appoint-
ments at the Student Desk to
donate blood for the Pitt Blood
Drive. Undcrelassmen played an
important part in putting the
Drive over the top.
Students often make dates to
meet in the libraries and study
together. There is always some
question as to how much study-
ing is done, but it is an interest-
ing way to spend the off-hours
classmen who greatly outnumber the seniors. They
too combine activities with studies and social life
to make up life at Pitt.
The fifth Hoor delivery room is often the busiest in the
University. This is especially evident when the underclass-
men realize that their final term papers and book reports

The Vade Mecum is a small book put out
by the VVSGA for the women of Pitt. In it
are listed all the student activities, their
functions, and purpose, a brief history of the
University, and a calendar listing major
events and goings on around Pitt. To every
Pitt co-ed the Vade Mecum extends the
friendly invitation, "Come with me."
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. Pitt is really just onebig happy fa

"Are they supposed to be Draculas, Frank-

the poor, frightened freshman as she gazed in
horror at the pictures lining the hall near the
student desk. "And what are those jars of money
for anyhow?" Al Robbins, standing near by, was
quick to come to the lady's aid. "They," he said
knowingly, "are the contestants in Pitt's most
unusual beauty contest for the 'Ugliest Man'
in Pitt, sponsored by Alpha Phi Omega. 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

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.
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

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.

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

many common interests.
Mortar Board members are known for their
dinner meetings, over recipes and hot coffee the

ing with the singing of "Taps," the girls knew
that they had been bound together once more in
the bonds of Mortar Board.

not just another walk. It's ODK walk and the

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?"

who has done the most in his four years at Pitt
to further ideals ofthe organization and his name

Scabbard and Blade is the only national un-

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
Every semester the group sponsors interfra-
ternity events with Pershing Rifies and the Arnold

movies and athletic competitions. Another spe-

Meeting only once a month this honorary fra-

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.

any day," at least that is what Don Gardner told

goes with fraternal conventions.

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.

VVhen the .Florence Nightingales of Sigma
Theta Tau plan a program for the year they really
make it something special. They began with a
delightful Founder's Day Tea in October and just
six days later they heard a well-known nurse speak
at their program meeting.
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.
Meetings 'lrcn t all work for members. Nurses take time out for OVCI' dessert, Sigma Theta Tau's anxiously plan their forth-

hi Beta Kappa
On the afternoon offanuary lQ in the lfnglish
Room, Xi chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, national
honorary scholastic society, was installed at the
University 0f'1,lfl'Sl1lll'Q.Il1. 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.
Members who were initiated in january into
Xi chapter of Phi Beta Kappa are:
Dr. R. H. lfitzgerald
Dr. Stanton C. Crawford
Dr. Manuel C. Elmer
Dr. lilmer D. Graper

The University of Pittsburgh is world famous for its many Nationality Rooms. An extension
of this idea was the miniature model United Nations Conference held in October. During this
conference many discussions and debates concerning critical and timely issues such as the "Racial
and Religious Problems of British and French West Africa" were carried on. Students from foreign
countries presented the viewpoints of their countries.

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-

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.

The student afiiliate of the American Chemi-

its parent organization, the American Chemical
Society. To become a full fledged member of ACS
a college degree is necessary, but, nevertheless,
students can 'take advantage of the facilities open
to the graduate members. Events have included
movies, talks, and tours through plants. The re-
gional meeting was held this year and was con-
ducted on the same basis as the meetings of the
parent organization. This session had representa-
tives from all student ACS chapters in this area.
The student chemists read original research pa-
pers. With reorganization in mind, more new
members have been recruited. This is also the
second year for the first ACS newspaper ever
written at Pitt. With more interest and more
members, Pitt's chapters of ACS has gone a long
way in promoting chemistry among students.

it has done so is the yearly presentation of an

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

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-

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.

The Civil Engineering Seminar at Pitt does
not stick to the theory of all work and no play.
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.

Again through good times and hard work the
E and M Association completed another success-
ful year promoting closer relationship between
the engineering students.
Friday, November 7, I952, the E and M's held a dance at West

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

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

The John lVIarshall Society is an honorary
prelegal organization. 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.
Al Reuben, President of John Marshall, suggests a point of
law to his fellow prelaw students.

These students in Kappa Phi Kappa, an education fraternity
for men, know where to get their education-Pitt's libraries.
Celebrating its twenty-seventh birthday at
Pitt, Tau chapter of Kappa Phi Kappa Fraternity
enlivened the past year with a successful mixture
of business and pleasure. The future teachers of
Kappa Phi Kappa gathered to stress scholastic
attainment, encourage social activity and pro-
mote professional ideals among men in all phases
of education. They invited the School of Educa-
tion to a typical job interview conducted by a
leading school supervisor. Pitt's Kappa Phi's wel-
comed the establishment of a new chapter at
Indiana State Teacher's College, and then pre-
pared to play host to the Regional Convention in
April. The members of Tau Chapter high-lighted
their social calendar with a smoker for junior and
senior men of the School of Education, an initia-
tion banquet at the Faculty Club and a gala pic-
nic at North Park in May.
Doing readings for education sometimes seems to be a chore,
but the men seem to enjoy it!

Omega Fraternity are first of all hard-working
dental students who have combined for academic
and social benefits and the advancement of the
dental profession. The Psi Omega's came to Pitt
over Hfty years ago and at present boasts a mem-
bership of seventy-five. They may well be called
the Yankees of intra-mural football for they can
point with pride to their record of forty-three
bers for a Psi Omega Tea Dance
consecutive wins and three solid years as all-
campus intra-mural champions before they were
defeated in the final playoffs of 1952.
They are champions socially, too. They spon-
sor monthly parties at their house on Bellefield
Avenue, a Christmas and Spring Formal, a May
picnic, and a golf outing in June. But probably
what the Psi Omega's are most proud of is the
annual Christmas party where underprivileged
children are entertained and presented with gifts
from Santa himself.

The first of these preceeding the fall semester
was a three day camp session at Camp Kon-O-

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

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

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
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.

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-
nored by the "All's," but opened their eyes later.
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.

Eighty-five degree heat helped crush the
Panthers at Oklahoma, as Pitt without Schmidt
and Blanda found it impossible to halt a speedy
split-T offense built around the deepest backlield
in the country. 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.
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
Notre Dame I9
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.

Paul Chess off
Although Captain Joe Schmidt was laid up
after the Irish fight, and Army was on the up-
swing again, Pitt showed itself the class of the
East by a dazzling display of single-wing and T-
stuff to run up a 22-O score at the end of the third
quarter. Then the Panthers, in the worst physical
shape of the season, hung on to take another big
game. Running for the injured Epps, Paul Chess
played his best game, scoring two TD's.
on an end run against Notre Dame.
The dressing room was a slap-happy place after the victory.
Chess' first touchdown on another of those end runs against Army.
Adams and Jacobs couldn't get to this one.

Reynolds' block is useless as the Mountaineer line smears Epps.
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! ! !
The same story-West Virginia's defenders were too tough.
Hoffman scores easily against Hoosiers.
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
Bozek couldn't get him, but Fcrgy and Palatella did.
Did Epps make it this time?-handoff from Neft.

Bobby Epps powers to the OSU 19.
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. A short punt finally opened the
door to OSU in the 4th.
North Carolina State didn't have a chance.

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.

A veteran-studded team ran up the best bas-
ketball record in seven years for the Panthers this
season. 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

for a possible rebound.
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

Scholarship reared its stately head, no uncommon
sight, of course, around Carlson teams, as Boyd

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. Then came the highest scoring spree in Pitt
history as the Panthers knocked off Geneva, 97-

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.

Pitt's Eastern Collegiate Swimming Associ-

of three wins, four losses and one tie in dual meet
competition. Hampered by the loss of ace back-
stroker and captain, Don Fanning, the Panther
mermen nevertheless showed several Hashes of
form which made the picture less gloomy. Fred

Pitt's athletic records have been made
through team playg and on a team, every man is
most valuable. However, there is often a man who,

The Panther proved its speed was good by
knocking OFF 4 of 6 opponents in easy fashion.
Coach Olson's boys had a narrow miss in the
opener versus Ohio State, losing 51M to QM.
The other stumble was to Miami of Ohio. Wally
Monahan, who held the supremacy in the hurdles,
and Johnny Patellos who was top dash man cap-
tured two 4th place positions in the IC4A. Ray
Luterancik placed 5th in the broad jump. The
Panthers will have a fine opportunity to howl next

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.

Did you happen to drop up on the Mellon
Park Courts last spring? If you did, you probably
saw some of the neatest tennis matches played
there. Did you happen to know that Bob Ilsevich
was the unbeaten Panther in singles competition?
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. So a 5 and Q. record
hits the books while an even more aggressive team
will hit the sod next year.

On the links, Pitt's golf team enjoyed a fine
season by taking 8 of 9 matches while placing 7th
in the Eastern Intercollegiates. Penn State proved
to be the only block to a perfect season, by drop-
ping the Panthers 5-Q. after 5 straight victories.
However, Dave McCormick's linksmen harnessed
the three following matches in strong style. Andy
Figura was the only Panther to escape the season
unscathed. Pitt enjoyed shutouts over Geneva
and Juniata, but found uneasy going with West
Virginia, Navy, and Georgetown. In garnering
49M points to the opponents' UM, the squad,
made up of a majority of seniors, again showed
the public that the Panther does roar!

Coach Ralph Mitterling fielded his team only
a dozen times this year. The Panther Nine out-
played 7 of I2 teams for a .583 season. Milt
Emery led the way with a heavy .341 batting
mark. Bob Kyle led in hits for the season with
I5 and 2 big homeruns for a .3oo mark. Ollie
Niemela combined I2 RBI's and errorless ball
with 9.0 chances for a standout performance.
Harry Little made a mark in center field by mak-
ing good on 24 errorless chances. As the records go,
Joe Scalzo, Panther first baseman, made about the
best showing with 97 putouts without an error and
I5 runs probably boosted with his 7 stolen bases.
Rudy Filek at 3B must have acted like Eddie
Stanky in pulling 8 walks through the season.
Dick Shannon, in pitching 34M innings for a
2-1 record, struck out 35 men and also gets the
credit for the only shutout of the season. Bob Rus-
sell had the only clean slate as he issued no bases
on balls and struck out IO in MM innings. Don
Shanafelt found the only extra inning game, that
against W. Va., but came out on top. He carried a
3-I record for 33M innings pitched. Although
Pitt just bounced through the win-loss columns
like a rubber ball, better things should be appear-
ing on the horizon.

"The plans are made and rain or snow they
can't be changed," Hope Mervosh insisted, so
the WRA's had their scheduled cookout at South

use the outdoor grill and had to make their
hamburgers on the indoor fireplace. Banana boats
added a festive air to the broiled burgers and pop.

"Presenting: The University of Pittsburgh
Varsity Marching Band." 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-
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
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.

"Sound your A, girls, and keep your mind on

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

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."

A meeting of Student Congress is held at Dean Biddle's home.
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

Deep in thought, members of Student Congress study the
plans for the coming year.
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.
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.

liott's ofhce to discuss the problem of more

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.

Big brownies with ice cream and hot fudge
sauce on top was the menu for the PanHel
reception in November. Freshmen women were
introduced formally to all the different sororities
on campus during the program and afterwards,
in the Blue Tuck Shop, they met the girls infor-
mally. 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. And all year the sorority
representatives worked together to build a com-
mon loyalty among all the groups.

Under the leadership of Betty Klein, the senior cabinet met in
the Polish Room to discuss future Senior Seminars.
With three years of exciting college life be-
hind them, the members of the Women's Class
of ,53 made their senior year the most unforget-
table. Their first get-together was the Senior
Soda Social. 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. The
long-awaited Tap Day finally came and with it
was the applause and congratulations that are
plentiful when Her Highness and the Alma Mater
are named. The Senior Dinner the day after Tap
Day was the last time the girls gathered as the
Women's Class of '53.

VVhat a year this has been for the Juniors!
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-

There are neither Democrats nor Republicans
in the cabinet of the Women's Class of 1955.
"What's the theme for this month?" President
The girls arc trying to decide which would be more appetizing
for coming class dinner-veal, chicken or maybe steak.
Maryrose Benkoski may ask at one of the meet-
ings. Then the suggestions for the theme of the
monthly class mixer come thick and fast. Or the
question might be about the menu of the class
dinner: "Veal chops would be nice," Audrey
Longridge, treasurer, may suggest: "What about
chicken?" asks V.P., Rosenella Tolion. Veal
chops? Chicken? Ham? Or maybe even steak!
But no matter what is on the menu it's bound to
be goodg for the sophs have Miss Savina Skewis,
Assistant Director ofthe University Food Service,
as Cabinet Adviser. Add to the agenda a class
picnic, and the Cabinet ofthe Women's Class of
'55 had a busy schedule working to unite the
sophomores in a year of fun.
Suggestions are being made by the cabinet members for a
suitable theme to be used in thc monthly class mixer.
Before the meeting the girls chat about men, sorority rushing,
and last week's exams.
"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.

A new semester starts and the familiar pattern
once more takes shape. Handy references like
the College Outline Series and the Card
Catalogue are in constant use and demand.
It is very fortunate for Pitt students that the
University bookstore provides these guiding
outlines in almost all subjects and that the
library is able to provide such an extensive
backlogue of material for student use.
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. Anna Mae
Pagano was this year's queen and received a
lovely radio along with her flowers and title.
The awarding ofthe Pledge Scholarship is
another feature ofthe annual Inter-fraternity
Ball. The awarded plaque signifies that this
year Phi Epsilon Pi had the pledge class with
the highest scholastic averages. Ronald Ecker
receives the award for his fraternity.

Helping to make it even more so were the
events held at the half. During the Pitt-Tech

Another half-time activity that caused a great

Note the unusual uniforms.
In contrast to the limited
memlmership of the sororities and
fraternities, is the Independent
Association which has no limited
quota. All students are welcome
to join and here they get
acquainted at one of their many
social events of the year.
Valentine's Day is the cue for Pitt to sponsor the annual Heart l-lop. Many
students turn out for the dance especially to see who will be chosen this year's
King and Queen of Hearts. The lucky couple for 1953 are Elynnedd Pool and
her King Bob Timmons.

The night before deadline the 8th floor hallway is just as
crowded as the Owl oflice. Here six ofthe section editors dis-
cuss what Danny Berger can do with two unevenly divided
fraternity group shots.
For about fifty students here at Pitt the word
"deadline" hung overhead like a black cloud until
March 17, when the 1953 Owl went to press. 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
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.

With an effective publicity campaign which
included Owl antics during the halftimes of foot-
ball games and a race to the 36th floor conducted
by Publicity Managers Robert DeBroE and
William Stept, the problem of circulation was
solved. By extending the local campaign, Marvin
Leiber and Richard,DeBroff, Advertising Manag-
ers, were able to exceed the budget in selling ads.
Handling the sales of organizations by himself,
Alan Skirboll did an excellent job of contacting
and soliciting organizations. He, too, went over
the top in meeting the goal established in the
budget. Harvey Rabinowitz, Assistant Business
Manager, helped this small but eiiicient staff keep
the budget balanced and Karl happy.

Gloria Hencghan, Managing Editor, was the
editor's friend in need as well as the staff's.
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.
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

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.

became chief picture paster, and if it hadn't been for his per-
sistence and patience there would have been one deadline

The Pitt News
These reporters are hard at work typing the copy to be used
in the News.
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

The Panther magazine, long known for its

transformation this year. 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.

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

The old adage that two heads are better than
one was well tested this year on the Skymvzper
Engineer, as co-Editors Art Hershkowitz and Bill
Vogt led a small but efficient staff of engineers in
putting out four editions of the magazine. 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-

At il Delt fall rushing party the Brothers introduced new
freshmen to Delt-style piano playing.
It seems as though the Delt's want to add some blue ribbons
to their well-filled trophy case.
1952-53 was the year of improvements for
president Leo Kairys and the Bayard Street
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
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.

A typical part of fraternity life has always been the group
singing around the piano.
This Fifth Avcnuc spot was best known to Pitt's incoming
freshman class of 1956.
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
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

included singing popular Lambda Chi songs, in-
cluding "We're All Good Fellows."

Two Phi Ep's were sitting in the living room

yelled, "Who wants a striped tie?" 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. The rest of
the chapter went back to studying for first place
scholarship honors for the third straight year.

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.

Be progressive is the motto ofthe Psi chapter
of Sigma Alpha Mu at Pitt. Their latest innova-
tion is the Help Week instead of Hell Week dur-
ing the pledge initiation period. "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

"The girl of my dreams
Is the sweetest girl
Of all the girls I know,
Each coed like an angel's tread
Fades in the after glow . . ."
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.
President Jim Johnston's Sigma Chi's were
also prominent in the YMCA and Inter-Fraternity
Athletics, capturing trophies in football, wrestling,
and a second for basketball and their Spring Carni-
val show, "Kolosium Kat."

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

"Indiana, here's Pitt's Ford in your Future"
was the motif of the winning Theta Chi homecom-
ing decoration this year.
President Jimmy Cresto's men worked for
weeks to assemble the project. 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.

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.

fraternities, is continuing the non-sectarian spirit
of its founders as it grows in number of actives
and pledges. 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,
Comic Strip dance, and a Thanksgiving barn
dance were just some of the "idea" parties. And
the President's Ball Spring formal finished the
year with the installation of new ofiicers.
Prominent in keeping Kappa Beta Phi well-
known on Campus were A1 Reuben of Varsity

By the end of June, the AKA's could look
back with satisfaction on a series of successful
enterprises-all made successful by hard work and
originality. 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.

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.

happiness mingled with tears and squeals of de-
light after the impressive ceremony. 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. They're busy gals at this time of
the year, but they still find time for their annual
formal in December.
There are many outstanding girls who wear
the Kappa key: Betty Patterson is president of
Junior Pan-Helg Ellen Samonas is chairman of
Housing Board and Lonnie Cinqugrani was the
sweetheart of Sigma Phi Epsilon.

The important decision of just the right

one earring at the last minute . . . but all of these
were just a few memories when each girl danced
with her date to the music of Archie Tarsh and
his band. The occasion was a WVinter Formal Din-

the first big sorority affair for the new Phi Sigma
Phi Sig's contributed more than one hundred
dollars to the Rheumatic Fever Fund, their na-
tional philanthropic project. They also contrib-
uted to the Pan-Hel Fund for a war orphan.
The Phi Sigis promoted good Pan-Hel rela-

There were also rushing parties, Pan-Hel Sing,

Red and white crepe paper, lace doilies, red
paper hearts, and lots of sorority spirit were some
of the ingredients for a Valentine Day party at
which the SDT's honored the crippled children
from the Industrial Home. That party is a typical
example ofthe events which highlighted the Sigma
Delta Tau program this year.
Other philanthropic work included a dona-
tion to the National Multiple Sclerosis Fund.
Also, the girls did volunteer hospital work such as
selling candy, magazines and toys, rolling band-
ages, reading to patients and spreading good
will in general.
Augmenting their social events was open

jointly with the Pi Lam's. Later, the SDT's

Social activities for the Zeta Tau Alpha's
started off with the proverbial bang. There was
the big scavenger hunt, a square dance, Christmas
party, Christmas formal and a card party. They
entertained a group of orphans at their house
with one of the Pitt fraternities at Christmas time
and after the holidays borrowed a bit of Old New
York for their Bowery Ball in January.
To raise money for their national charity,
the Zeta's sold magazine subscriptions. Business
was good, and they sent a large sum to the Cere-
bral Palsy Fund.
On Founders' Day, actives and alumni cele-
brated with a banquet. At the banquet, they
honored president Janet Sopher for achieving the
highest scholastic average of seniors and June
Riffle for the highest average ofthe year. June's
name was inscribed on a plaque that is kept in
the house at 147 N. Dithridge Street.

Girls of Delta Sigma Theta deserve a pro-

project was one that brought happiness and pleas-

nation, especially the south. The girls contributed
money to buy books for a traveling mobile library
for people who otherwise wouldn't have access to
these books. Another national activity of the
Delta Sig's is the "Jabberwock." "Jabberwock"
is a series of plays combined into one show that
is presented every spring to raise money for their
Delta Sig girls never neglect their social
life. During football season they sponsored and
attended the informal Kick-off Kaper, one of the

Crystal Ball was a big success and "a good time
was had by all."

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.

The campus of Pitt in June is a
picturesque green carpet with
many students lolling lazily in the
shade or basking in the bright
sunlight. The trees are literally
bursting with soft bunches of
leaves, almost weighing the
branches down, and casting grey
summer shadows over the grass.

Graduation is the culmination of four long years Filled with study, hard work, and fun.
Often a sigh of relief is expressed, but there is always a tinge of regret at closing
perhaps four ofthe fullest years in a lifetime.
Receiving a degree does not mean
that an education is finished by
any means. The diploma is just a
symbol ofthe formalized side of
learningg the greater challenge lies
in taking what has been learned
and being able to use that learning
to its fullest advantage.

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.

On this page we are presenting four people
whom we shall refer to as "night Owls." 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.

night staff at Pitt, work hard through the night but always find time to

THANKS . . .
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
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."
