This year we are dedicated to THE STUDENT. Not to
a student but to characteristics which make up the
personality of every student. The personage who
is moved by the desire to know about himself and
others and for himself and others. He is the
individual and the society, living in the new and
the old, experiencing a metamorphosis now that
will create the values for the future. Here is
the searching and seeking, testing and trying,
destroying and creating, accepting and reiecting
that will form each individual's goal and provide
the direction he will take to achieve it. In this
University the student has learned to think for
himself and to gain the best from others' knowledge.
He has in his mind and in his hands the ability
and will to create a brilliant future. We have
witnessed his strides and believe in his potential,
and therefore, to him we dedicate the T954 GRANITE

N each issue of the Granite are recorded the many activities of Uni-
versity life. lt is a volume which all of you will cherish more as the years
go by-for it will bring back memories of a period in your lives when many
new avenues of interest were opened to you. Here on the campus of the
University of New Hampshire you made new and lasting friends, and you
obtained an insight into the areas of learning which civilized man has
uncovered through the ages. We hope that you have not only acquired a
background for "earning a living," but also have a clearer understanding
of "how to live." As you ioin the company of educated men and women,
you ioin hands with an ever-increasing group of college graduates who are
dedicated to the philosophy that the free and inquiring mind must be given
full expression in the solution of man's problems. lt is only through the
search for truth than man can really become free.
So as you of the class of 1954 go forth into a competitive and disturbed
world, may you look back on your college experience as a period when you
developed maturity and understanding-where you learned to know yourself
as well as your fellow men. May this volume serve as a reminder of the
depth and variety of college life and of the debt which you will always
owe to your Alma Mater. lt will always be a part of you, as you will be a
part of it. May l take this opportunity to wish each of you success and
happiness in the years ahead.

TUDENTS from fifteen different departments
will be graduated this year from the Col-
lege of Liberal Arts. The largest college on
campus, Liberal Arts is headed by Dean Edward
Y. Blewett. Five divisions are coordinated within
the college to otter both broad general liberal
arts and prescribed curricula.
The sixteen main obiectives of the College of
Liberal Arts have been constantly adhered to
and considered helpful in planning and carrying
out effective maintenance of high academic
ideals and forwarding the college standards.
Among the purposes of the college are: the
ability to understand and use language for clear
and effective interchange of ideas, an under-
standing and appreciation of the principles of
physical and biological sciences as they apply
to man, an understanding of the principles un-
derlying the social, psychological, political, and
economic activities of man.
The College of Liberal Arts strives for appre-
ciation of all peoples and their cultures, both
contemporary and historical, an understanding
of literature and the other arts, appreciation of
the religious heritage of man, an understanding
of personal and community health.
Stressing the interrelation of all liberal arts
subjects, and the synthesis which can be de-
veloped from them, the college also teaches the
student competence in a selected field of knowl-
edge. The deans and professors are always
ready to aid in selecting and preparing for a
suitable profession or vocation, as well as de-
veloping academic interests outside the selected
field of knowledge.
Many liberal arts students go on to graduate
schools throughout America and, with Fulbright
aid, to other countries. Some of the departments
also offer graduate work here. Other students
are trained for immediate gainful service, but
throughout the college is a bond of understand-
ing, interests, appreciation, and abilities which
make possible the living of a richer and more
NDER the direction of Dean Lauren E. Seeley,
the College of Technology has become out-
standing among the engineering schools in the
East. About five hundred students are enrolled
in the college's program. Instruction is offered
in Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, Building
Construction and the four maior branches of
engineering: Chemical, Civil, Electrical, and Me-
UNH is practically unique in possessing a
building, Kingsbury Hall, large enough to house
all the engineering departments under one roof.
Kingsbury is considered to be one of the most
modern and complete buildings devoted ex-
clusively to technology in the country. There are
many laboratories equipped with the latest ex-
Another part of the College of Technology
is the Engineering Experiment Station set up to
do research and analysis for New Hampshire
industry. Dean Seeley is also the director of the
New Hampshire's technology graduates are
eagerly sought by United States industry. ln
.lune there are always plenty of iobs available
for the engineering student.
All departments of the College offer graduate
work leading to the Master's Degree, with fi-
nancial aids in scholarships and assistantships
available for many students. Beginning this year,
some fields in the College of Technology have
been able to offer study leading to the doctor-
ate degree. lt is another step forward for the
University that has been gained by continued
hard work, a superior degree of experimenta-
tion, and proven merit.
NE of the oldest agriculture schools in the
east and continually achieving high distinc-
tion in the field is the University of New Hamp-
shire's College of Agriculture. The original basis
of the whole University, it this year made an-
other step forward in the naming of the Thomp-
son School of Agriculture, a two-year course of
study which has proved a maior success in the
years it has been operated.
Named after the University's first benefactor,
Ben Thompson, the school provides one of the
two main divisions of study offered by the Col-
lege. The other is the regular four-year course
leading to the bachelor's degree. This College
gives a broad program of study in which every
student receives a liberal education with train-
ing in humanities, physical, biological, and so-
cial scienccs as well as in his own specifically
chosen field. Students specialize in technical
knowledge relating to the various phases of
agriculture, forestry, or home economics when
they enroll in the College of Agriculture.
Twelve departments make up the College, with
an enrollment of about 300 students in courses
leading to degrees. Available to degree students
for specialization are more than twenty pro-
grams of study, each with its own technical and
Putnam Hall, recently built and dedicated for
agricultural use, is a good example of the de-
velopment of the school paralleling the advance-
ment of scientific agriculture throughout the
An increasingly large proportion of the grad-
uates in agriculture are continuing their educa-
tion in graduate schools throughout the country.
Only a relatively small number turn immediately
to farm production. More positions are available
yearly for agriculture graduates in teaching, ex-
tension services, research, state and national
government work, industry and commerce.
EPRESENTATIVE of the constant achievement
and advancement of the University as a
whole is the Graduate School. During the year
the school became authorized to offer Ph.D.
degrees for the first time. This step forward in
education was brought about under the guidance
of Dr. Herbert J. Moss, Dean of the Graduate
School, and the graduate faculty.
Established in l903, the Graduate School
has always offered instruction with the obiective
of bringing together faculty members and aca-
demically qualified students in a progressive
spirit of scholarship and research. The graduate
student is given the opportunity to specialize in
some field of knowledge specifically interesting
to him. The school stresses the development of a
maturity of thought and attitude toward the
individual's chosen field so that his professional
and his cultural life may be enriched and made
During this academic year, l59 students were
enrolled in the various departments of the Grad-
uate School. Instruction is given in all three
colleges, Liberal Arts, Agriculture, and Tech-
nology and in over twenty departments in the
colleges on the graduate level. Since the first
University master's degree was given, almost
1200 students have received advanced degrees
here. From some l0O educational institutions
including most of the states and several foreign
countries students have come to New Hampshire
for post-graduate work.
Fellowships and scholarships are offered in
many departments as well as part-time working
assistantships, to enable deserving students to
attain higher education in their field.
HE health of every one of the University's three thousand stu-
dents is taken care of by Hood House, the UNH Infirmary. Staffed
by two full time physicians, six nurses and a consulting psychologist,
Hood House has beds for twenty-six patients with adequate space
for more in the event of an emergency.
Dr. John A. MacDonald is director of the lnfirmary with Dr.
Daniel H. Deyoe acting as Assistant Director. They give physical
examinations to all University employees, inspect the housing units
for general cleanliness and health, and examine students reporting
illnesses to Hood House.
The gift of Charles Harvey Hood, a UNH graduate, the Infirmary
has an emergency operating room, extensive diagnostic equipment,
and excellent laboratory facilities.

RMY Reserve OFFicer's training has been a part of Uni-
versity life for sixty years. Established at UNH in 1893,
the present form of training was prescribed by the Na-
tional Defense Act of 1916.
There are approximately four hundred and thirty students
from all four classes enrolled in the Army's training pro-
gram. Three students have been offered Regular Army
commissions while nearly ninety more seniors will receive
commissions in the Army Reserve as second lieutenants.
The program is integrated with the regular academic
University schedule so that students may not only qualify
for their degrees but also for their commissions.
Thousands of UNH graduates have undergone training
in the Army ROTC's two maior branches: Infantry and Anti-
The ROTC program in America's colleges and universities
is a major source of army appointments for the government.
Those students accepting their commissions will begin their
Army careers on an equal footing with the West Point
HE Air Force ROTC program at the University of New
Hampshire is relatively new, having been initiated in the
fall of 1946. At the time new curricula applicable to the
Air Force mission were put into use.
Under the expanded program of the Air Force some ad-
iustments in AFROTC courses have been made. Emphasis
has been placed on the broader use of liberal arts educa-
tion as a prerequisite for further training in the Air Force,
both as a means to widen the base from which to obtain
officer personnel and to assure that leadership and man-
agement abilities are not sacrificed to technical experience.
The AFROTC program of instruction is integrated with the
regular University schedule to permit the student to receive
academic credit for the military courses taken while qualify-
ing for a reserve commission in the United States Air Force.

T was March 5th and ci tense night at N. H.

for loving cups at the annual presentation of

minute skits of fun and foolishness.
The controversial issue of communism was
burlesqued in many of the skits. ln Acacia's mock

ETURNING alumni were greeted by
sunny weather and familiar scenes on
October lOth. Fraternities, dormitories, and
sororities extended open arms to all the
"old grads" and sported colorful welcom-
ing signs and "Beat Maine" slogans.
Sigma Beta, Sawyer, Chi Omega, and
Gibbs Hall were recipients for cups for their
imaginative house decorations.
A busy day began with registration and
the President's Reception in the morning.
At noon, buffet lunches were served at
many of the fraternities and sororities and
the fourth annual chicken barbecue was
held at Putnam Hall.
Of course, the main attraction was the
traditional football game between the
Maine "Bears" and our N. H. "Wildcats."
During the half, the newly elected "mayor"
of Durham, "Digger O'Dell, the Morbid
Mortician," made his first public appear-
ance. Loyal rooters of U. N. H. were treat-
ed to a very healthy 21-6 victory over

beach parties, Notch dance, and fra-

MAJOR issue is solved every fall when the
freshman and sophomore classes compete
battle of brown on University Day. The
question concerns the traditional fresh-
man beanie. Shall the frosh be compelled to
wear their "badge of distinction" until Thanks-
giving vacation? Or will they be able to thwart
the upperclassmen and tuck away their caps for
posterity-and the moths?
ln order to achieve an early state of bare-
headness llegallyl, the freshman must prove his
athletic prowess by competing in different events
with the sophomore class.
This year the class of '56 defeated their un-
derlings in the three-legged races, men's and
women's soccer games, waste-basket races, and
the greased pole contest. The class of '57 re-
deemed themselves by putting their collective
muscle behind a tug-of-war contest and gave
the old heave-ho to their rival.
Fun was had by all-even the freshman, who
still had to wear the beanies, to their great

Blaring loudspeakers, followed by a motor-
cade of colorful politicians and their cohorts,
announced the annual Blue Key Mayoralty con-
test on October oth. Once again, the campus
resounded with impassioned pleas and riotous
stunts during the three days and two nights of
frantic campaigning for the honor of becom-
ing "Hizzoner," the Mayor of Durham.
Alpha Tau Omega presented Jack Hill as
"Tammany Hill"-"The Most Honest Man That
Money Can Buy" who represented the stereo-
typed, corrupt gangster politico of big city noto-
riety. He sneeringly promised a general debase-
ment of campus morality and the instigation of
lucrative, questionable rackets for all "seekers
after the easy buck."
Acacia combatted the city slicker's compel-
I'ng but evil influence with an uninhibited "back
to nature" campaign for lovers of adventure and
the outdoor life. Jack Weeks, sporting the trap-
pings and bravado of a big-game hunter as
"Frank Muck," stalked the wilds of Durham for
votes with a safari of wild animals l?l and a
harem of dancing girls.
Jack Hoey, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, as a debo-
naire, officious politician from the deep South,
developed side-burns and a "yo all" accent to
wow 'em as "Gaylord Flush." Cee-gar smoking
cronies and a bevy of hoop-skirted charmers
added elegance to his "elemental" plea to 'lGet
in the Bush with Gaylord Flush!"
"The Boldest Man of College Woods" was the
boastful claim to fame of Theta Chi's Tom
Chase. In the guise of "Robin the Hood" he
merrily advocated a return to the lawless, un-
inhibited life of his fictional progenitor. He and
his hearty band of comrades pranced around in
gunny sacks, ominously brandishing bows and
arrows as a dire warning to "Vote for Robin or
You'll get The Shaft."
'lowering John McKenna, as the dead-pan
"Digger O'Dell" was undoubtedly the most
sombre candidate in Mayoralty history. Attired
in a moth-eaten, formal black suit with tails,
stovepipe hat, and white gloves, he was the
epitome of gaunt "professional perfection."
Catchy songs and feminine pulchritude were
provided by an Alpha Xi Delta chorus line, who
helped to liven up the garishly macabre pro-
The climax of the campaigning took place
Friday night in NH Hall when the five candi-
dates were at their zaniest in a final attempt
to impress the students.
It was "Digger O'Dell," the morbid mor-
tician, who won and became the most melan-
choly mayor in Dur-Ham's history.

HE Big Weekend sponsored by the Outing Club's Blue Circle arrived as "Sitz-
mark Season." Durham was, as usual, unappropriately bereft of snow. The annual
test of ingenuity and resourcefulness was met by an amazing competitive spirit, and
truckloads of the precious white stuff rumbled through the campus for many days
and nights preceding the start of carnival festivities.
The week-end got off to a flying start on Thursday, February llth, with special
attractions at the Franklin theater after sculpture iudging, followed by a torchlight
parade to the winning men's snow creation. The queen and her aides rode in a
sleigh propped on a truck to Sigma Beta's humorous sculpture of an imbibing St.
Bernard where Diane McLean was installed as reigning queen at Carnival weekend.
The evening was climaxed by a new type of jazz concert at NH Hall. The Dart-
mouth lniunaires and UNH Salmanders choral groups, combined with the musical
gyrations of Buzz Emerson's Wildcats and the Dartmouth Sultans, proved to be a
hugely successful innovation. Theta Upsilon was announced as the winner of the
sorority sculptures, Schofield Hall for the wcmen's dormitories, and East-West for the
T was the night of February l2th and the
thermometer had taken a frosty nose-dive.
However, the cold did not deter couples from
enioying the gaiety of the annual Carnival Ball.
Dancing feet obeyed the syncopations of Roy
Stevens and his orchestra, under a colorful can-
opy of streamers. The more athletic aspect of
carnival time was represented by thelstriking
silhouettes of skaters and skiers which decol
rated the walls and flanked the stage.
The peak of the evening's festivities was the
impressive coronation ceremony at ll o'clock
when Diane McLean, freshman, was crowned
queen of the 33rd Winter Carnival. Cute little
Barbara Collins served as the queen's hand-
maiden and carried the garland of red roses
and white carnations which President Robert F.
Chandler placed on Diane's dark head. Bou-
quets of long-stemmed American Beauty roses
were presented to the Queen and her aides who
were: Roberta Patch, Alpha Chi, Betty Crowe,
Phi Mu, Debbie Low, Scott, and Kathy Murphy,
Schofield. The traditional waltz was then led by
President Chandler with Queen Diane and the
aides with their escorts.
The evening became a wonderful memory
all too soon, when weary, but happy couples had
to brave the icy cold weather to the two o'clock

N September of l95O, the senior class had
its first introduction to life at college. After
endless lectures in New Hampshire Hall and
Murkland Auditorium, there were endless lines
at Commons before anyone could get a meal.
To add to the pleasure of all this waiting there
was the ever present Sphinx. Leading the class
of '54 to cheers and rallies, the Sphinx members
began putting the UNH spirit into everyone. To
add to the good times of those first few months,
the UNH Wildcats came through with an unde-
After the first flush of newness had worn off,
there was the all important business of studying
and electing a slate of officers. The class of '54
picked Jack Driscoll for its president. Jack At-
wood was the vice-president, Audrey Schriber
kept the records straight as secretary, and Frcd
Bennett was treasurer. Class officers were not
the only ones elected. Half-way through the foot-
ball season, Colonel T. Hall was put into office
as the Honorable Mayor of Dur-ham.
Came second semester and a chance to start
everything afresh. There were basketball games,
the Winter Carnival, and then finals again. One
year was finished but the status of a senior still
seemed a long way off.
After a busy summer vacation, the class of
'54 returned to Durham finding that it had sud-
denly become upperclassmen. Now it was their
turn to be Sphinxes and instill a pride in the
University in the class of '55, Paul Harris was
elected Sphinx president and the sophomores
beat the freshmen in the games at University
Day. Another football season, another Mil Arts
Ball, and another election. Jack Driscoll was
elected president again and Jack Atwood put in
a repeat performance as Vice President. Sally
Ann Wolcott was secretary for the sophomores
and Fred Bennett collected dues for his second
year as class treasurer.
Mayorality saw Oliver Q. Pinkham put into
office. His pink pills put life back into everyone
feeling a bit of the Sophomore slump. Two new
dorms were opened, Sawyer for women and
Carnival Royalty. Brunette Lois-Joan Marcou was
elected queen and Mariorie Hesse and Cynthia
Gilbert were elected aides.
No one will ever forget the primary voting
for the national election. Famous political figures
came to campus to campaign including Stassen,
Kefauver and the late Senator Taft. Last but not
least, came the announcement that President
Truman would make a Durham appearance.
Classes were dismissed and thousands of people
gathered around the T Hall parking lot await-
ing the arrival of the President. Finally, along
came a big car. Sitting all around on top of it
were a number of brawny secret service men.
Somewhere in the midst of them, they say, sat
the President. The car circled around the lot
,s 'M ,ir -M251
Alexander for men. The campus was changing
and the class was changing too. Finals were no
longer particularly terrifying and everyone pretty
much knew his way around by now.
With the beginning of second semester came
the Winter Carnival and the big Carnival Ball.
Not one, not two, but three sophomores were
and went right back out again and that was the
end of it. Everyone hopes the President got a
better look at Durham than Durham got of the
Another summer of iobs all over the country
and the class of '54 came back to Durham
ready to take its place in the University as
iuniors. Election time rolled around again and
found Don Wheeler leading the iuniors as Presi-
dent. Jack Atwood was elected Vice-President
for the third straight year while Charlotte An-
derson was secretary and Bill Hutchinson was
treasurer. Mayoralty also saw a member of the
class of '54 elected to the coveted position. Bob
Hackett lit up the Durham firmament as l. C.
Stars and when the votes were in he was the
new mayor. His sidekick, Charlie Chaplin, was
seen at all of the football games picking up
cigarette butts and strutting around like some-
thing out of a l92O movie.
The first formal of the season, the Military
Arts Ball, saw Joan Westling and Nancy Hill
chosen as honorary cadet maiors. At the Winter
Carnival Ball, the next big dance, Barbara
Johnson was chosen queen. At Junior Prom time,
the class' own dance, Karen Schreiver was
queen, Judy Reed, Joan DeCourcey, Nancy Hill
and Marilyn Needham were aides. The women
were not the only ones to snare a royal position.
Dick Keenan reigned over the annual Panhel-
lenic sponsored MERP weekend.
Time was flying fast and as the year drew
to a close, class rings were ordered, and cram-
ming began for those all important finals. June
came and with it, the end of the next to last
year in Durham. Everyone left campus looking
forward to summer iobs, while most of the men
waited for the start of summer camp which
spread them all over the country, some being
assigned Army camps as far away as Texas.
ln September, the busiest and most remem-
bered year of all began at last. Class pictures
for The Granite were taken and the seniors
ended their football careers as they had begun,
with a championship team. The fans watched
win after win pile up until one day fate and
UConn got together to give UNH its only Yankee
Conference defeat. The Bean Pot came back to
Durham after a four year journey though it
spent half of the year at the University of Rhode
Island who tied for first place. Co-Captains of
the winning team were "Jeep" Munsey and Joe
"Digger O'Dell" of Kappa Sigma took his
place as the duly elected Mayor of Dur-ham
while the seniors took over other positions of
importance. Carleton Eldredge became president
of the Student Senate and class elections came
around. John C. Driscoll was chosen President,
Jeanne Gilmore, Vice-President, Marilyn Need-
ham, Secretary, and Bill Hutchinson, Treasurer.
The seniors took their place in the honorary
societies with Leighton Gilman elected President
of Blue Key and Tom Mullaney elected President
of Senior Skulls. .lack P. Driscoll headed lFC
and Janice Gilchrist led Panhellenic.
After football season and all the elections,
everything settled down. A highlight of the Blue
and White series was the presentation of "John
Brown's Body" starring Anne Baxter, Tyrone
Power, and Raymond Massey playing in person
at the Field House. The big building was crowded
to the doors to see what many considered the
outstanding theatrical event of the year.
Another capacity crowd filled New Hampshire
Hall for the Mil Arts Ball. Claude Thornhill played
the music and Marilyn Needham was made the
smiling Cadet Colonel by the Adiutant General
of the State of New Hampshire.
The four day Winter Carnival weekend
brought with it more and bigger snow sculptures
than ever before and a busy round of iazz
concerts, choir concerts, the Carnival Play, and
ski events. The crowning event of the weekend
was the big Carnival Ball on Friday night. Roy
Stevens and his orchestra played for the Ball.
After that came a long, vacationless period
of studying and last minute activities. Class
meetings were held to decide on a gift for the
University and all the other business necessary
to a senior class.
ln the spring came the annual Junior Prom
weekend with its queen, beach parties, and
floats. A last busy month and then finals and
senior week. A little flurry of parties and meet-
ing old friends and then commencement. Sud-
denly the four long years seemed awfully short
as the degrees were passed out and the Alma
Mater sung for the last time as a student.

HE class of 1955 came to UNH with all the questions, confusion and
wonder of every other class that has been at Durham. They wandered
through the lines at Commons, tussled with the Sphinx, rang T Hall bell
for Wildcat victories, cheered the games, and had the annual struggle
When the first flush of newness was gone they elected Pete Rummery
as President, Bob Dunlop Vice President, Jack Welsh Treasurer, and Roz
Cameron Secretary. With their new officers they shifted into high gear
and really settled down as students.
The class of fifty-five put its best foot forward and had two queen
candidates for Winter Carnival. The girls living in Sawyer Hall lthey
were the first to live in the new dorml copped the Home-coming Decora-
tions cup and started that dorm on its present three year winning streak.
ln the spring, many of the freshmen were initiated into fraternities
and sororities after a grueling five week pledge period. ln June, the
freshmen took finals and left Durham with one happy year behind them.
After working in iobs all over the country, the members of the class
of '55 returned to Durham as sophomores and found that they were
the Sphinxes. They were proud of their University and attempted to
instill some of that pride in the new class. They elected Dick Hewitt as
President, Bob Cuthbertson as Vice President, Gerald Quimby as Treas-
urer, and Ann Cummings as Secretary.
Some people fell into the proverbial "sophomore slump" but an un-
usually high number pulled through with good marks at the end of the
first semester. The second semester brought the second Winter Carnival
for the fifty-fivers. Now they were the ones who were out building the
snow statues and working on decorations. After Carnival came a long
period without any vacations or breaks until the first hints of spring
began to appear. Spring in Durham is enough to reiuvenate anybody
because it ends the rainy, cold, winter days and puts the "beach party
spirit" back into circulation. During the summer of 1953, many members of the class
travelled to Europe and widely scattered parts of the country. They returned to Dur-
ham and their books in the fall with a new feeling about college. lt was now almost
like coming home to come back to Durham and everyone looked forward to it.
Everyone saw Digger O'DelI elected mayor and cheered as the Wildcats came up
with a championship football team. The Mil. Arts Ball seemed like the biggest and
best one yet. The fifth set of finals came around but graduation still seemed years
away until the announcement came out that graduation pictures would be taken a
year early. The proofs came back and everyone suddenly realized that there would
only be one more football season, one more Mil Arts, one more Carnival, and one
The iuniors held their highly successful Prom in May. New Hampshire Hall was
filled with beautiful decorations and the whole committee worked under the direction
of the class ofhcers who were Art Valicant, President, Marshall Litchfield, Vice Presi-
dent, Ann Cummings, Secretary, and Francis Googins, Treasurer.
Many of the iunior men were looking forward to summer camp when June rolled

HE class of i956 came to Durham way back in 1952. Fresh from a hundred
different high and prep schools, the new freshmen found that college was a lot
more than football games, pep rallies and beach-party weekends. After a hectic
Orientation Week, and the usual tussles with the Sphinx, the '56ers really got into
the spirit of things. They cheered avidly at all the football games, tolled T-Hall bell
so long that they finally had to set a time limit, and got a look at someone's idea
of a ioke when the scoreboard went up in flames one dark night.
When election time came around, they put George Allen in as their new President,
elected Fred Tilton as Vice-President, Bob Narkis, Treasurer, and Jan Curran, Secre-
tary. With the new slate of officers installed, they became an integrated part of the
University family. Everyone watched Mayor l. C. Stars riding around on his a la
i890 bicycle with his side-kick Charlie Chaplin trailing along behind in search of
extra long cigarette butts. lt was sure a big change from high school.
When the Mil. Arts weekend came around everyone got out his ROTC uniform and
set out for New Hampshire Hall. After Mil. Arts it was only a hop, skip, and a iump
to Christmas vacation and then the first rather terrifying bout with final exams. An
unusually high number pulled through though.
With the coming of Winter Carnival, two members of the class of '56 were nomi-
nated for queen. Mariorie Covell and Ruth Granston were chosen as aides for the
big ball and took their smiling place with upperclass royalty.
Second semester was pretty smooth sailing because almost everybody knew what
he was doing by then. Hour exams were now old stuff and everyone in English 2
learned with a sigh of relief that there would be no term paper required.
Before long it was spring and the arrival of the sun in Durham heralded the coming
of beach parties and baseball. lt was over shortly after that and everyone left
realizing that already one year was all gone.
Back in Durham as sophomores, the Class of l956 elected Bob Narkis, President,
Fred Tilton, Vice-President, Ken Dodge, Treasurer, and Betty Ann Raders, Secretary.
Betty Ann went on to become Queen of the ROTC Drill Team.
The football season was a championship one that had everyone anxiously waiting
by telephones for the scores of out-of-town games. The Bean Pot finally came back
to Durham amid many cheers.
Mil. Arts came around again and with it some more class of '56 candidates for
the coveted position of Honorary Cadet Colonel. Betty Crowe and Ruth Granston
held up the sophomores' honor by being aides to the queen. More exams, Christmas,
and finals brought an end to first semester.
Second semester was a repetition of the first year. Winter held on with unexpected
snow storms until the end of March, but spring vacation seemed to come early and
after that there were iust two more months of being sophomores. Choosing next
year's courses and taking trips to the beach occupied most of the spring. ln the
final rush to study for finals the year ended. The sophomore class wished good luck
to their senior friends and looked forward to coming back to Durham as iuniors.

HE class of 1957 hit the University of New Hampshire campus with more spirit
than any other class in years. Arriving in Durham after three busy days at
Freshman Camp, the new members of the University family took the lines, the meet-
ings, and the Sphinx all in their stride.
Commons was in an uproar. Sphinx member came into every meal and had the
freshmen cheering and singing so much that the long space lines were half forgotten.
At times the uproar could be heard half way to Dunfey's.
No one will forget the beanies and how hard they were to hold on to. lt seemed
as if they were always getting lost, forgotten, or iust plain worn at the wrong time.
Prexy's Promenade was off limits until one dark night the class of '57 invaded it and
left an indelible mark that made the whole campus sit up and take notice. The big,
red footprints went all the way from Garrison Avenue to Ballard Street.
With every victory that the UNH Wildcats piled up, the freshman dutifully trooped
up to T-Hall and made the bell ring until everyone thought it would crack. One time,
somebody got so enthusiastic that the bell was rung before UNH was sure of its
victory. The frosh marched behind the band to all the games and even had their
own special cheerleaders, the Pepkittens.
Came University Day, and with it an official chance to ditch the beanies. The
sophomores came through with the winning teams, however, and so the beanies
were supposed to stay-they disappeared anyway.
In December came the first big dance of the year and with it a very new and
exciting two-thirty permission. The girls were so happy about not having to be in the
dorms at nine o'clock that more freshmen attended the formal than any other class.
The first semester came to an end and a terrifying round of finals came with it.
Most of the class of '57 had never had a three hour exam before but by the time
the first week of finals was over, the freshmen were as blase as the seniors.
At the beginning of second semester, the girls got lO o'clocks for every night
of the week. This new late permission meant that they could stay out until the library
ln February, the long awaited Winter Carnival came around. Everybody had been
hearing about it for months and suddenly it had come.
sorority houses began great secret proiects which turned
some beautifully colored, some iust plain funny. Everyone
hear the orchestra and ioin in the fun.
Rushing began with the second semester and the men
houses every Wednesday and Saturday night. The girls
made afternoon visits and went to parties. Finally it was

all over and the bids came

Spring had been hanging around Durham most of the winter so when the calendar
said it should really be spring, the snow began to fall
and the slush piled up and
the temperature dropped. Along came the Junior Prom, baseball, beach parties,
and all the other things that are a part of college. The first year was all over and
already some were feeling sorry that there were only three more left.

INCE the spring of l95l, Student Senate has been the official voice of the stu-
dents on the University of New Hampshire campus. ln this, its third year of
operation, Student Senate has won increasing prominence in its roles of coordinating
body between the students and the faculty and as top student governing body.
lt has been the policy of this year's Senate to, in the words of its Constitution,
"Promote the best interests of the University of New Hampshire in all matters which
come within the province of the student body."
Composed of representatives from all campus housing units, plus a delegation
from the commuting students, Senate has one representative for approximately each
fifty undergraduate students at the University. Through this broad basis, Senate
endeavors both to discover and to develop student opinion. ln accordance with
this, Senate has this year acted in a number of fields. Among these were its con-
sideration of the five day academic week, a new type of student identity card, the
Rolling Ridge Conference on Campus Affairs, the investigation into "nepotism" in
student organizations, its sponsoring of such activities as the Campus Chest Fund,
Hi-U Day, orientation week and the contest for a seal and flag to symbolize Student
No organization of Senate's size can function without committees. The Executive
Committee, headed by president Carleton Eldredge, and composed of vice-president
Martha Grace llater Frances Bealsl, secretary Kathryn Walker, treasurer Bruce
Wetmore, corresponding secretary Nancy Fels and members-at-large Richard Hewitt,
Shirley Richardson and Jerold Shapiro, has given over all direction to Senate affairs.
The Joint Budget and Constitutions Investigating Committee under chairman Tom
Steen conducted the "nepotism" inquiry which uncovered undesirable situations in
several organizations and led to a re-evaluation of membership selection procedures
in these organizations. Under the chairmanship of Robert C. Sampson and later
Richard Slayton the Publicity Committee conducted a contest for the best design
for a Senate seal, awarding a S25 prize to the winner.
With Shirley Rondow as chairman, the Senate Welfare Committee this year ex-
panded the annual Campus Chest Fund campaign into a week long program of
activities designed to raise money not only for current charitable purposes, but to
enable the Committee to set up a reserve fund for emergencies. Senate carried
out its iudicial functions through its Men's and Women's Judiciary Committees under
Douglas Jones and Ann Meader. As in the past, Senate continued its sponsorship
of the Rolling Ridge Conference. This year, however, Senate has set up a new
pattern for the Conference so that for next year it will consist of representatives of
responsible campus governmental bodies rather than the more general representation
which has often prevailed in the past.
Nancy Fels Bruce Wetmore Kathy Walker
As always, the work both of the Senate as a whole and the work of its com-
mittees has been facilitated by the cooperation of Senate's advisors, Dean Everett
B. Sackett and Associate Deans William Medesy and Dorothy Snyder.
This year's Student Senate will perhaps be long remembered for the colorful
personalities in and associated with it. The issues which have been raised this year
have often been controversial, but behind the sound and the fury there is a record
of solid accomplishment.

HERE have been many GRANITES stretching
way back into the dim, dark history of UNH.
Some of them were thicker than this one, some
were thinner. Some had blue covers, some had
brown, green, or red, but none of them will
mean as much lto the seniors at leastl as the
i954 GRANITE. Years from now you will look at
it and say "Remember when . . ." or you will
come across the picture of a friend that you
haven't seen for a long time and the memories
will all come back.
When work on this year's GRANITE began
last October, it seemed like there were countless
Wednesday nights ahead. Assignments were put
oFf until the next week and everyone wondered
what all the rush was about. Somehow most of
the deadlines were met and the mountains of
sheets of paper got off to the publishers.
Despite winter wind and Student Senate in-
vestigations, the crew faithfully put in its time
up on creaking Ballard Hall's third floor. The
noise on Wednesday nights was really terrific.
A dozen typewriters were usually going, some-
one was making out bills, and the buzz of a
huddled conversation about the layout all com-
peted with the singing and trumpet' playing go-
ing on downstairs.
The most important thing about any activity,
be it a publication or football game, is the
people that make up the backbone of the or-
ganization. ln the GRANITE each member of the
staff had an important iob to do. With the aid
of a dozen or so heelers and an occasional push

from the editor, it all got done.
Cal Canny, the Editor, can look on this year-
book as particularly his own. Not only did he
spend a lot of time with the publisher planning
layouts, but he was the only one that everybody
could be sure would be at Ballard Hall every
Wednesday night. He was incredibly patient
and had an answer to every question. For some
reason, Cal never got mad even when the work
was late and people seemed more interested in
talking than in putting out a yearbook.
Helping Cal and learning some of the ropes
was Don Black, the able Associate Editor. Busi-
ness Manager, Gerry Rheault, probably sent out
more letters and bills than anyone on campus
outside of T Hall. He seemed to understand all
about the art of keeping books in some sem-
blance of order.
Advertising Manager, John Lunt, had a "sys-
tem" that seemed to work even when nothing
else did. His countless trips to Dover, Ports-
mouth, and Manchester resulted in a lot of ad-
vertisements for this yearbook.
.lim Merritt, the Literary Editor, saw the GRAN-
ITE as a mountain of uncorrected writeups. With
the aid of his assistant, Priscilla Hudson, the
writeups were corrected, the extra words added
on to those that were too short, and the class
Yi ,, P'
Gerry Rheault, John Lunt.
Features Editor, Joan Clark, tried desperately
to think of new ways of telling about campus
events. With a Thesaurus in one hand and a
puzzled look on her face, she got writeups that
will bring a lot of memories back.
With fourteen dormitories to take care of,
Cal Bougioukas had her hands full as Dormitory
Editor, Karen Schriever as the fraternity and
sorority editor had a lot of typing to do and a
lot of hunting around to find the informal pic-
tures that are on the pages belonging to the
twenty Greek letter houses on campus.
The art department of the GRANITE was taken
care of by Nancy Anderson who pondered a
long time over her ideas. Her work is what makes
this year's book original.
The all important Senior Editor was Edwina
Sutherland who, with the aid of Pat Walker,
spent hours going over lists of activities, sorting
out senior pictures and trying to find out who
was who. Up until the very last minute, she was
proofreading long lists of names to make sure
that the names were spelled right and no ac-
tivities left out of each senior's writeup.
Organization Editor, Laurie Moore, had to
make sure that the dozens of campus activities
got their writeups in on time. Her phone calls
probably reached the thousand mark before the
year was half done.
Mary Kilgore, Don Black.
The GRANlTE'S sports department was done
by Louie Georgopoulos who seemed to enioy
every minute of his work. Louie's sense of humor
brightened many a long Wednesday night.
Photographer Collis Beck carried his bulky
equipment around to every campus event from
the big dances to all the sporting events and
got the informal shots that fill the pages of this
Nancy White was the secretary who wrote
all the official letters and helped wherever help
was needed most.
And so it goes. Another staff has put out
another yearbook. We hope you like it because
it was a lot of fun.

A College Newspaper
A college newspaper is a lot of things.
It serves as a weekly chronicle of events, as a time-waster between
ROTC drill and suppertime, as an enobling influence on campus
mores, as a medium for pressing trousers, as a provider of intel-
lectual stimulation, as a method of straightening wobbly desks, as
a vehicle for student creative writing, as a protector of text-books
in rainy weather, as a training-school for student journalism, and
as a fly-swatter. It is the most inevitable, the most criticized, the
most-awaited, and the most enduring phenomenon on a college
Student governments can pass legislation, get into headlines,
can have their picture in the paper, can introduce distinguished
visitors. Class presidents can make speeches, football players get
cheered by three thousand students, theatrical organizations take
curtain-calls. Honorary societies wear blue jackets, political clubs
shake hands with the governor, dean's list students get on the honor
But the staff of a college newspaper must work in anonymity,
never meets the governor, never gets cheered or takes a curtain call,
never makes the headlines, and wears nothing but a perpetual
frown and a peptic ulcer. Only the newspaper staff is forced to its
campaigns for betterment ignored, its laborious work gracing the
men's room floor, its experiments in typography and style un-
And only a college newspaper staff is damn-fool enough not to
want to change places with anybody else on campus.
Because, in the final analysis, the staff of a college newspaper
is the only group that can have the satisfaction of seeing its thou-
sands of words coming out in uneraseable type every week, of say-
ing what it wants to say in a method that reaches every student and
every professor: of knowing that it is doing something for its school
that nobody else could do in quite the same way, and of working
with a group of students that-no matter how much they may be
abused, over-worked, and sworn at-will always be back for more,
just because they want to work on a college newspaper.

ENIOR SKULLS, the oldest organization of its kind on campus, was founded in
l909 by a group of seniors for the purpose of bringing recognition to the
outstanding men of its class. The group's membership is composed of fifteen men
who have demonstrated superior qualities of leadership in extra-curricular activities,
who have high character and a satisfactory scholastic standing.
The society operates as a service organization for the University. In this capacity,
its largest responsibility lies in the field of intramural sports. Since the organization
of the program many years ago by Senior Skulls, the group has spent a great deal
of time in setting up schedules and rule books, in seeing that games are played,
and in compiling results. The program includes participation by all fraternities and
men's dormitories in football, basketball, softball, golf, tennis, and track. At the
close of each academic year, the Skulls award the All-Point Trophy to the team which
has amassed the greatest number of points during the year.
Another activity of the society is to meet all visiting athletic teams, freshman and
varsity, and insure them of the best facilities possible during their stay.
As a service to the University, the Skulls also supply ushers at various functions,
and members to serve as guides for important campus guests.
ln the spring, the Skulls for the benefit of the Campus Chest Fund, sponsor and
produce the Faculty Frolics variety show. During this campaign, the organization
raises further contributions to the fund by ruffling themselves off to the winning
co-ed who is designated as the "Senior Skull Sweetheart," She is escorted day and
night for a week to various social functions by the members of the Skulls.
The year's membership greatly reflected the ideals of Senior Skulls. Among the
members were the President of Newman Club, the President of Scabbard and Blade,
the President of the Inter-Fraternity Council, the Editor of the New Hampshire, four
fraternity Presidents, three members of the varsity football and basketball teams,
and two candidates for Phi Beta Kappa, highest scholastic honorary society in the
li' is the never-ending aim of the Senior Skulls to be always ready to assist the
University organizations in any way they can, to further friendly relations among
the students on campus, and to promote the welfare and prestige of the University
of New Hampshire.

N 1921 a group of seniors formed a senior men's honorary
society and since that time Blue Key has played an important
part in the extra-curricular life at the University of New Hampshire.
The 15 men chosen each year are selected on the basis of "quantities
of leadership, successful participation in extra-curricular activities,
high character and satisfactory scholastic standing."
The school year 1953-54 saw those standards fulfilled for Blue
Key had among its members the former editor of The New Hamp-
shire, the chairman of the 1953 Memorial Union Convocation, the
President of the Outing Club, the cadet colonel of the ROTC unit,
the board manager of Freshman Camp, the stage manager of
Mask and Dagger, the leader of The Wildcats, the captains of track
and cross country teams, and members of other athletic teams and
scholastic honorary societies.
Furthermore, the past academic year saw Blue Key play an
exceptionally large part in campus activities. As customary, the
organization sponsored the annual Mayoralty campaign in October,
when the mythical "Mayor of Dur-ham" was selected from a field

of five candidates, and staged Stunt Night when housing units were presented
trophies for putting on the best skits. Among its other activities were a special iazz
concert in November and a comical auction sale, held in coniunction with the
Campus Chest Fund.
Service proiects of Blue Key include the preservation of a scholarship to an out-
standing male student on the basis of need and participation in outside activities,
and ushering at University functions such as convocations and commencement exer-
cises. Blue Key also presented a purse at Christmas time to a Durham family and
took part in attempting to raise funds to buy the football team iackets.
Officers of the organization were Leighton C. Gilman, president, Robert C. Potter,
vice-president, Thomas L. Snow, Jr., treasurer, and Gordon Emerson, secretary.

its aims of being a service to the students and faculty of the University of New

established at the University of New Hampshire.

One evening in May, 1953, nine iunior girls
were chosen to be Mortar Board members in
the annual tapping ceremony. The old members
went to dormitory and sorority houses, singing
Mortar Board songs, and lighting their way
with candles. Many watched the impressive cere-
mony and felt the thrill of the unsuspecting girls
as they were tapped. The following day the
new girls could be easily recognized as they
hurried to classes in flowing black robes. ln the
evening they attended a banquet and were
formally initiated into Mortar Board.
Toward the end of May, a group of the old
and new members drove to the University of
Vermont for a regional convention. There they
had the opportunity to exchange ideas with
girls from New England and Pennsylvania.
One of the biggest proiects of Mortar Board
this year was service to the University during
Orientation Week. An information booth was
sei' up, exams were proctored, a series of dorm
parties was presented, and freshmen were of-
fered any counsel needed.
During the school year, Mortar Board spon-
sored the Big-Little Sister program which was
highlighted by a picnic in October. Other proi-
ects included selling sun visors at the football
games, cooperation with Campus Chest, and
other University proiects, and holding faculty-
student discussions. Over the summer they sent
out a welcome and general information letter
to all incoming freshmen women. ln addition a
tutoring service was set up this year.
ln all its work, Mortor Board strives for its
ideals of scholarship, leadership, and service,
the qualities for which its members are chosen.

CABBARD AND BLADE is a national honorary
society composed of cadets of the ad-
vanced iunior and senior years of ROTC. The
organization was founded at the University of
Wisconsin to encourage and foster the qualities
of military leadership and to promote friendship
and good fellowship among the Cadet Officers.
F Company, 6th Regiment, was founded at
the University of New Hampshire in l926. Since
that time, the company has been prominent in
campus activities. Among the activities of Scab-
bard and Blade are the sponsoring of the annual
Military Arts Ball, offering a scholarship to a
deserving sophomore, sponsoring the Armistice
Day and Mother's Day program, and for the
third year, co-sponsoring the ROTC drill team.

UR mission is two-fold in nature. First, we
provide additional training in leadership
and sophomore ROTC classes. Our second aim
is to provide the best possible drill team to
represent the University, the ROTC Departments,
the Drill Team Sponsors, who are The Scabbard
and Blade, and The Arnold Air Society.
A Drill Team ceremony that is fast becoming
a tradition is the raising of the flag at home
football games. Short drill demonstrations have
also been featured before these games, and
similar demonstrations are anticipated during
half-time at basketball games.
Last year Betty Ann Raders was elected the
first honorary Drill Team Captain, and she was
on hand this year to take the review at the
football game between UNH and Boston Uni-
versity on High-U Day.
Our ultimate goal is to take first place at the
Regional Air Force Drill Team Competitions in
Promotions for Drill Team members form an
additional incentive. During the first semester
freshmen are promoted to the cadet rank of
Private First Class and sophomores are pro-
moted to the cadet rank of Corporal. There are
also three cadet Sergeants in the Drill Team,
and competition for these stripes provides addi-
tional spirit within the team.
As for the advantages of Drill Team member-
ship, the record speaks for itself. A large per-
centage of the high scores on Military Drill and
Leadership exams are achieved by team mem-
bers. Furthermore, the number of drill team
members that have been selected for advanced
ROTC has been extremely high.
Captain John M. Monson, USAF, has been
our advisor and instructor since the Drill Team's
inception in 1951. The interest shown by the
Military Department, and the time and work
provided by Captain Monson as their active
representative has been most gratifying.

HE New Hampshire Varsity Club, an organi-
zation composed of men who have earned
their school letters through participation in var-
sity athletics, enioyed another successful year
under the direction of its president, Alan Carlsen.
For years this organization had what might
be called "routine" activities, functions which
included running the hot dog and soft drink con-
cession at the home football games, in coopera-
tion with the Senior Skulls, putting on a dance,
and presenting the Varsity Club award, a trophy
given to the individual considered the outstand-
ing man in the outgoing senior class.
During the past year, the club sponsored a
successful jazz concert over Mil Art weekend,
awarded trophies to a queen and her aids.
With funds from this concert and other funds
raised, we continued the Varsity Club scholar-
ship. This scholarship is one of the outstanding
awards offered to needy students at the Univer-
sity, as it provides Sl25 annually to a student
who shows financial need, an active interest in
the extra-culrricular program at the University,
and a satisfactory academic average.

ITH the coming of Reverend "Neb" Mitchell,
the Canterbury Club of the University of
New Hampshire became an even greater part
of St. George's Mission. Although it is under the
auspices of the Episcopal Church, Canterbury
opens its Sunday night meetings at the rectory
to all faiths. Supper is provided by the Women's
Auxiliary of the Parish. The programs offer a
wide variety of discussions and talks by mem-
bers of the clergy and faculty.
Our annual Shrove Tuesday pancake supper
turned out to be a huge success and a lot of
fun. lt was held 'for the Parish members as well
as students, and through that and St. George's
Fun Night, Canterbury became an active part of
the life of the Mission.
The club is very proud of the choir it has
started under the guidance of Mrs. Boak and

HE Hillel Foundation of UNH is only one of
many Hillel groups in existence throughout
the country. These organizations were founded
and are supported by the B'nai B'rith for Jew-
ish college students away from home. Through
Hillel, the Jewish student has contact with his
fellow Jews and the chance to belong to his
own religious club.
Hillel provides social, cultural, and religious
life for the Jewish students on the campus. Meet-
ings are held once a week and the programs
are varied to meet the individual taste. Among
these programs are educational and humorous
films, well known speakers, discussions, religious
services, breakfasts, delicatessen suppers, festi-
val celebrations, and social gatherings. Even

HE Newman Club is a religious organization
for Catholic students and has the three-fold
purpose of channeling the spiritual, educational,
and social development of its members toward
those virtuous characteristics which are symbolic
of our patron, John Henry, Cardinal Newman.
ln his own humble life, he attempted to emulate
the perfection of Jesus Christ.
Achievement of this goal is attained through
a diversified program of events. We have guest
speakers, movies, discussion groups, dances, an
annual play, and a spring outing. Highlighting
our program is: the Communion Breakfast which
is usually held on Mil Arts week end, Sports
Night, which is a tribute to all athletes of the
University with special emphasis on the football
team, and the Bazaar in the spring.

VEN with all of our eyes turned toward the
future Student Union, the Notch has been a
place of much activity throughout the past year.
For this is the place where new friends meet,
and old friends gather for bridge and coffee.
The weekend usually finds some special activity
in progress, and a sandwich bar which is open
from 8:30 A.M. until lO:3O P.M., the Notch is
the perfect place for relaxation and recreation.
The activities which are carried on within the
building are planned and regulated by the mem-
bers ot the Student Union committees, who work
under the direction of a Board of Governors,
and whose programs are coordinated by the
Student Union director, Allison Sanborn.
The first maior program of the fall semester
was the Fund Fair, a new venture for the Student
Union at which the various fraternities, sorori-
ties and organizations cooperated by setting up
booths at which students could try their luck at
games of skill for prizes. The proceeds of the
afternoon fair were turned in to the Memorial
Union Fund. That evening found the gala day
continuing, with the SU Revue of '53 displaying
the best of the campus talent.
Christmas time brought the Christmas Ball,
February saw the Notch bedecked with hearts
to celebrate St. Valentine's day and to add to
the festivities of Carnival weekend. As March
blew into town, everyone waited expectantly for
the annual Night of Sin, which this year offered
a chance to escape to the deepest iungles of
Africa, and spend an evening of dissipation
with the natives and the apes. Soon after Night
of Sin the SU members were hard at work again,
planning the Spring Semi-Formal, the occasion
for which the Notch is transformed into a place
of enchantment and romance.
The maior events throughout the calendar year
are only a very small part of the work carried on
by the eight Student Union Committees. The So-
cial committee is responsible for all of the
dances, for providing refreshments and decora-
tions. The Publicity committee is always busy
planning ways to publicize the activities at the
Notch. Recreation committee keeps the Office
supplied with cards, games, and ping-pong
equipment, and plans outings, etc. The members
of the personnel committee are responsible for
sending out a weekly bulletin to all SU members,
for the keeping records on each member, and
for handling the designation of awards. Baby-
sitters, typists, and chaperone needs are re-
ferred to the Student Relations committee, which
is in charge of the various pools, and well as
the writing of any publicity releases designated
to go off campus. The research and Evaluation
committee keeps the tiles of reports on the
various programs, and meets weekly to discuss
new methods and program ideas. One of the
most active committees in the past year has
been the Education committee, which though
small, has planned the very stimulat'ng coffee
hours, at which different faculty members have
spoken on pertinent topics, This committee has
also been in charge of the Sunday evening
music hour, and the series of movies shown
throughout the year. The Commuters committee
has planned a dance, worked on Community
Chest, and made every effort to include the
group which they represent in the affairs of the
With the extended facilities and spate which
the Memorial Student Union will provide for ac-
tivities, it will be up to the SU members of the
future to make the new buildfng, even more
than is the present Notch, the heart of all cam-
pus activity-a plaze where friendships may
grow, new ideas may be cxfhanged, and a
place where students and faculty may meet in-
formally to spend leisure hours in purposeful

HE University of New Hampshire Outing Club
was organized in l9l5 by a small group of
students interested in outdoor activities. lt has
grown until it has become the largest student
organization on the campus.
Membership is open to all students, faculty
and alumni. The club's varied program includes
both campus activities and oft campus trips.
The activities of Outing Club start Orienta-
tion Week with many members back on campus
preparing for the annual Freshman Outing and
also for Woodsman's Weekend which is one of
the first events of the season. After this comes
the fall climbing weekends to Chocorua, White-
face, Lafayette, and many other mountains.

swimming trips to the Manchester YWCA pool,
square dance trips to Dover, and work trips to
get our cabins at Franconia and Jackson in
readiness for the weekly ski trips touwherever
there is snow."
This year, for the first time, rock climbing
trips were taken and proved to be very exciting
The most exciting and busiest time of the year
for Outing Club is the Winter Carnival, entitled
"Sitzmark Season" this year, held the weekend
of February 12, l3, and lA. The busy Carnival
program consists of the queen's coronation,
snow sculptures, carnival movies, a iazz concert,
ski events, and the big Carnival Ball.
The entire program of Outing Club is planned
and directed by Blue Circle, the governing body
of the club. Blue Circle is composed of thirty-
five members who are chosen for their interest
in the club and their leadership ability as heelers.
Spring activities of the club include supper
trips, deep sea fishing, beach trips, and of course
sailing in our two new fibre glass sail boats.
Outing Club is a member of The lnter-Col-
legiate Outing Club Association which numbers
over fifty schools in the Eastern seacoast region.
Each September, IOCA, college students gather
for a week of outdoor activities and all-round
good times. The IOCA Conference is to be spon-
sored by NHOC this spring.
The Club is fortunate in having Miss Evelyn
Browne as faculty advisor, and her help and
enthusiasm have been greatly appreciated by all.
This year OC was fortunate enough to spon-
sor Bob Bates of Exeter, who gave an illustrated
lecture on the recent "K-2" expedition which
attempted to scale the second highest mountain
in the world.
To its many members, Outing Club is not
merely another club, it is a way of living and
working with others in the spirit of good fellow-

NDER the excellent leadership of our Di-
rector, Dr. David Smith, and our Assistant
Director, Mr. Allen Owen, the University of New
Hampshire Concert Show Band has had a fine
ln the fall as the UNH Wildcat Show Band
and with the concentration on marching and
snappy formations we had our largest amount
of work and our greatest amount of fun. ln
addition to the home football games and rallies
we made a memorable trip, complete with bus
breakdowns and an impromptu "dixie" session
en route to the UNH-UConn game at Storrs,
Conn. There we put on our best football half-
time show of the season.
At the close of the football season we turned
to more serious music in preparation for the
first of several concert appearances. The first
of these, the Mid-Winter Concert, was dedicated
to Director Smith's son born the morning of the
concert. Wearing weights in his shoes, Director
Smith directed with unusual vim. Following his
example, the band really moved, giving one of
their finer performances. Following this concert,
the band prepared for Stunt Night, which was
very well received, the New-Music Festival which
previewed for high school directors and students
the newly published music for their groups, the
annual Spring Tour, and our campus Spring
These springtime activities kept the band con-
stantly busy for the remainder of the year. The
band is one of the University's most popular
organizations, playing at many campus functions
as well as giving concerts and tours. Band not
only provides the campus with entertainment, but
is an opportunity for fellowship and enjoyment
to the musicians.
HE Wildcats are well-known on campus and
throughout New England. The band is tradi-
tional at the University of New Hampshire and
the owners and players are always students at
the University. Heading the Wildcats is Gordon
Emerson, better known as "Buzz," who is recog-
nized as one of the best college drummers in
the New England area. The band has twelve
pieces and a female vocalist, Miss Arlene Fitz-
patrick. They have a full library of stock ar-
rangements, plus many of their own specialties.
They do many campus iobs, including the Presi-
dent's reception during Freshman Orientation
Week, class dances and organization dances.
A group made up of the members of the band
have played at Dartmouth, Plymouth Teacher's
College and Rochester High School. Recently,
the Wildcats played at the Whoopper's Banquet
sponsored by Governor Gregg which was held
in Manchester, New Hampshire.
One of their best acclaimed performances of
the year was at the jazz concert during Winter
Carnival week, when they were co-starred with
the Dartmouth Sultans. They did many of the
campus favorites, including Buzz's own compo-
sition, and the playing of Charlie Turner, Danny
Carroll, Charlie Despres, and Buzz himself, to
mention a few, was hailed by the crowd. They
also played in the Faculty-Frolics this year, with
a few "hep" members of the faculty making

HERE are few campuses that are complete
without a male double-quartet and it is the
desire of the Salamanders to make a contribu-
tion to the University by presenting their pro-
gram at its many activities.
The group, this year led by Joe Copp, is in
its third year of active participation and has
made a large record of accomplishments. Aside
from singing at Stunt Night, Song Fest, Winter
Carnival Concert, and other campus events, the
Salamanders have appeared at many alumni
clubs to promote a closer contact with alumni
and to offer entertainment from the University.
The group has also had the pleasure of mak-
ing a guest television appearance. Even though
they are only in their third year, the Sala-
manders have established a name for themselves
and as a result have made appearances also
on other campuses such as Colby Junior Col-

also took many trips to Boston and during spring
vacation appeared in Schenectady, New York.
The Salamanders hope to keep a strong or-
ganization, providing entertainment for the stu-
dents on campus, and alumni groups whenever
possible. lt is hoped that the prestige and tradi-
tion of the Salamanders will grow and keep
pace with our University.
HE University of New Hampshire Concert
Choir is a group of sixty picked voices and
represents the three colleges of the University.
This activity group has participated in just about
every type of musical production. lt has been
heard around the world on both radio, motion
pictures, and has made frequent appearances
on TV. The UNH Concert Choir has been on
coast-to-coast hook-ups on radio three maior
networks annually for the past tive years and
has been released to well over 700 stations
throughout the nation each year. lt has been
included in the NBC Collegiate Series for the
past four years, and has been on the Christmas
Series of CBS for the past five years.
The choir has been beamed via the "Voice of
America" throughout Europe, Latin America and
the Far East. Because of this extensive coverage
mail has arrived to the choir from almost every
state in the Union, Canada and the Bahamas.
The choir had participated in cutting choral
sound track for four movies, the latest being
done this year for movie producer Louis de
Rochemont. ln one of the films they transcribed
with musicians from the Roxy Theatre, N. Y. C.
The Choir has also appeared in the spring series
of the Boston "Pops." It has given many con-
certs over the New England six state area.

HI BETA KAPPA, an undergraduate honorary
society, is the oldest of the Greek-letter
fraternities. lt has an unequalled national rec-
ord of over 70,000 active members, who wear
their key proudly.
"Love of wisdom, the helmsman of life," was
the motto adopted by the fraternity at its found-
ing in i776 at the College of William and Mary,
Williamsburg, Virginia. The organization at the
present time has "set for itself the noble task
of encouraging true scholarship and practical
idealism in the schools of secondary and higher
education throughout the land." Each year the
chapter elects members from the upper tenth of
the graduating senior class. The men and women
chosen must have shown themselves outstand-
ing as to scholarship and as leaders. The initiates
are formally admitted, and the records made
by eminent members, both living and dead,
should stimulate each wearer of the key to strive
to realize his highest possibilities.
This year's formal initiation was held on May
4, and was followed by a banquet, at which
the guest speaker was Professor Crane Brinton

HE new Hampshire Alpha Chapter of Tau Beta
Pi, the national Engineering Honor Associa-
tion, was installed at the University of New
Hampshire in December, 1950, as ci result of
earlier work by Dean Lauren E. Seeley and the
members of the Vector Society.
The Tau Beta Pi Association was founded in
i885 at Lehigh University by Professor Edward
H. Williams, Jr., who felt the need for a chapter
of an honorary fraternity at Lehigh whose pur-
pose would be to mark in a fitting manner those
who, by virtue of their outstanding scholarship,
integrity, and breadth of interest as undergradu-
ates, or by their attainments as alumni, have con-
ferred honor upon their alma mater. Election to
Tau Beta Pi is the highest scholastic honor which

U chapter of Alphi Chi Sigma, a national,
professional, chemical fraternity, was char-
tered here at the University of New Hampshire
in 1911, some nine years after the fraternity
was founded at the University of Wisconsin in
The fraternity is open to male students who
are majoring in chemistry, chemical engineering,
or allied fields in any of the colleges of the Uni-
versity who have maintained a satisfactory scho-
lastic standing. The objectives of the fraternity
are: to bind its members in a tie of true and
lasting friendship, to strive for the advancement
of chemistry both as a science and as a profes-
sion, and to aid its members by every honorable
means in the attainment of their ambitions as
chemists throughout their lives.
Mu chapter sponsors two annual awards in
chemistry. One, an award in general chemistry
is given to the highest ranking freshman, the
other is given to that senior member of Mu
chapter who shows the greatest promise of suc-
cess in professional life.
Other activities of Alpha Chi Sigma include:
the promotion of an active safety program,
pledge parties and smokers throughout the year
including speakers both in the chemical field
and in other interesting fields, an informed buffet
supper and program at Christmas time, and in
April or May, the organization holds its annual
formal dinner at which new members and the
faculty are guests of the chapter.

N November 7, 1897, a small group of ag-
ricultural students at Columbus, Ohio
founded the fraternity of Alpha Zeta. lt is an
honorary agricultural fraternity whose members
are selected from agricultural students of high
scholarship on the basis of character, leader-
ship, and personality. The members of the
Granite Chapter at the University of New Hamp-
shire represent nearly every curriculum in the
College of Agriculture.
This year marked the fiftieth anniversary of
the founding of the Granite Chapter. During the
year the main activity of the chapter has been
to establish an "All Aggie Day" at the univer-
sity. Alpha Zeta served as a coordinator of the
agricultural clubs which displayed exhibits on
April l7, l954. The Awards Dance held during
the evening of "All Aggie Day" was sponsored

HI KAPPA PHI is an honor society emphasiz-
ing scholarship and character in the thoughts
of college students. It is composed of graduate
and undergraduate members of all departments
of American universities and colleges and at-
tempts to hold fast to the original purpose for
which institutions of learning were founded, and
to stimulate achievement by the prize of mem-
bership. The society differs from other honorary
societies in that students in any department of
study may be invited to ioin.
The Society was founded at the University of
Maine in IS97, and soon became a national
society with chapters at the University of Maine,
the University of Tennessee, and Pennsylvania
State College. There are now forty-five chapters
distributed over the continental United States,
the Hawaiian and Philippine Islands. The chapter
at the University of New Hampshire, which is
the thirteenth in order of establishment, was
organized in l922.
A small percentage of senior and iunior stu-
dents who have maintained a high scholastic
average are invited to ioin and are initiated
each fall and spring.

nomics society on this campus had been known
as Psi Lambda.
The goal of Phi Upsilon Omicron is to pro-
mote an interest and understanding of home
economics through professional and social ac-
tivities. Membership in the society is based on
scholarship, leadership, and personal qualities,
an initiation followed by a social hour is held

in Pettee Hall an exhibit of glassware given to
the home economics department by Mrs. Mc-
Laughlin, former department head, worked with
the home economics club on readying for use
the new games room at the Elizabeth DeMerritt

S3,000, and the money was given to thirteen
state, national, and international organizations,
and to an emergency fund which provides
money at a time of disaster or for other un-
The Steering Committee was composed of
members of campus organizations, housing units,
and the Student Senate Welfare Committee.
These students, together with the faculty, stu-
dent solicitors, and the administration,all gen-
erously donated their time to Campus Chest.
The campaign consisted of proiects, each
under the direction of various campus organiza-
tions. lt was opened by a Faculty Talent Show
on Monday, March l5. During the week, the
deans sold coffee and doughnuts underT-Hall
arch, the faculty operated a shoeshine con-
cession, and an Ugly Man contest was held with
the students voting for their favorite candidate.
A book drive was held to collect used books
for World University Service to be shipped over-
seas. On Friday night, an auction was held,
offering for sale everything from groceries to
the services of professors and other campus
personalities. The Bill Smith Dance was held on
Saturday night, and the winner ofthe Ugly Man
contest was crowned. The campaign came to a
close on Sunday, March 21, with the movie,
"Red River," starring John Wayne.
With the whole hearted cooperation of every-
one, the Campus Chest Fund drive was one of
the most sucessful yet held.

PHINX, the Sophomore class honor society is
mainly concerned with helping to guide the
freshman during the week following orientation.
Sphinx also edits the Freshman handbook, issues
the beanies, and aids other organizations in
their contributions to college life.
The Sphinx had a wonderful year, at least
we won't forget it for a while, nor will the
Freshmen. The Freshmen class this year was
really initiated and many unpredicted occur-
rences took place during this initiation. Duck
walks and picturesque drawings on Prexy's
promenade, "spirit" drinking, snake dances and
the good natured rumpus in Commons were all
part of the fun. However, through it all grew a
fine freshman class spirit and fine attitude to-
ward college life. Consequently, we feel that
we came close to our goal.

We wish to thank all those who worked with
us and particularly the Freshmen who were so
wonderfully receptive to our toying with their
good nature. We sincerely hope that in the
years to come that Sphinx will continue to be a
growing organization on this campus.
Sophomore Sphinx members are elected by
members of the freshman class each year for
the following school year. ln this way, Sphinx
remains a society in close contact with the class
they aid. Members are those who have been
active in campus affairs in their freshman year.
The society provides an opportunity for
friendship and better understanding between
the sophomore and freshman classes and en-
deavors to keep University spirit at a top level.
OTEL GREETERS OF AMERICA, Chapter l,
was organized at the University of New
Hampshire in 1942. lts purpose is to unite those

HE Phanarion Club provides the opportunity
for fellowship and Christian growth among
the Orthodox students on campus. The club meets
twice a month cmd the programs are varied to
meet the individual taste. The activities have in-
cluded religious speakers from various com-
munities in New Hampshire, social hours with
various chapters of the Maids of Athens and
Sons of Pericles attending, and an Award Night
at which time honors and awards were bestowed
upon Billy Pappas and Charles Caramihalis for
outstanding achievement. Even though the club
is Orthodox in membership, the meetings and
events are open to all who may be interested.
With Professor Nicholos F. Colovas, and Pro-
fessor John A. Karas acting as advisors, the
Phanarion Club functions chiefly through elected
officers who this year were: President, Louis

Throughout the year members of the Club
have attended various religious conferences with

HE Home Economics Club has had another
busy and successful year. Under the able
leadership of President Mary Drew, the club has
undertaken many proiects. In doing so, the pur-
pose of the club was fulfilled: that of encourag-
ing prospective home economists to understand
and to participate in the activities of a full-
fiedged home economist.
Students maioring in home economics meet
the first Wednesday of each month to engage
in the club's many activities and to meet with
students in the same field. An informal coffee
hour was our first get-together. During this time
the Big Sisters and Little Sisters within our club
had an opportunity to get acquainted. As the
year progressed we entertained the members of
the Seacoast Region of the AHEA. The various
members of the club who had attended home
ec. conferences related to us their adventures to,
from, and while attending conferences.
An auction to which each club member
brought an article, served as a way to raise
money and to have fun doing it. This year, our
annual Christmas party, an International Christ-
mas, brought to the girls the understanding of
Christmas in other lands. Several of the stu-
dents from other lands briefiy described their
Christmas season. An Avon party, a talk and
slides on France, and a discussion on oppor-
tunities in home economics were themes of other
ln addition to the usual activities the club
members acted as hostesses at the Faculty Tea
for Hi-U Day. Another group painted the base-
ment of the Home Practice House, made dra-
peries, and painted the furniture. Now the huge

as a games room. Other proiects included the
booth at the Student Union Fair and the selling
of Christmas and greeting cards. The year
ended with the annual farewell steak roast for

HE Granite State Agronomy Club at the Uni-
versity of New Hampshire was organized on
March 5, i954 by the students and members of
the faculty of the Agronomy department for the
purpose of promoting and stimulating interest in
agronomic work among the students of the cam-
pus. ln September of i953 the club became
officially affiliated with the student section of
the American Society of Agronomy. This student
section is represented at thirty-seven universities
throughout the country. The Granite State Agron-

agricultural fields. Meetings are held twice a
month in Nesmith Hall, and members of the club
have entertained speakers who are outstanding
in the field of agriculture, such as county agents,
fertilizer and feed representatives, and pros-
perous businessmen from the state. Other types
of entertainment include interesting movies on
all subiects as well as reports from the members
The club takes pride in actively taking part in
agricultural and University functions such as All-
Aggie Day. At this event the club puts up a dis-
play to inform the public of the club's activities,
what the field of agronomy covers, and how it
fits into the over-all agricultural picture.
Though the organization is young, it looks for-
ward to a bright and enioyabue future. Trips to
fertilizer plants, grain houses, and even deep
sea fishing excursions make for a more friendly
and informal relationship between the members.
HE Animal lndustry Club was formed on
campus in May, 1949, by a group of stu-
dents interested in furthering their activities in
the field of animal science. This club is open to
any student interested in animals, though most
of the members are studying Dairy Husbandry
or Animal Husbandry in either the four year
college or the Thompson School of Agriculture.
Our meeting program generally includes a
business meeting, a speaker or movie, and re-
freshments. While many of our speakers are
professors in the College of Agriculture, our
meetings afford them an opportunity to present
their views on subiects they would not ordinarily
cover in class.
Our big event of the year is the "New Hamp-
shire Royal" which is a fitting and showing con-
test. This contest gives the students an oppor-
tunity to demonstrate, in the show ring, their
ability to bring out the best in an animal. ln-
dustries and businessmen who are connected with
agriculture donate prizes for this show to offer
an incentive for the showmen to do their best.
The contest is open to any student at the Uni-
versity who wishes to show and has been held
annually since its initiation in l950.

HE University 4-H Club is an organization of
students who are, or have been in the past,
4-H members, or who have not had any pre-
vious contact with 4-H work but are now inter-
ested in it.
The club offers a variety of activities which
are designed to stimulate thought, make us
aware of the changing conditions around us,
and continue the spirit of 4-H Club fellowship.
This year, for the first time in many, the Uni-
versity 4-H Club sponsored a maior dance on
campus. On January 8, a Caller's Jamboree
Square Dance was held in New Hampshire Hall.
The club hopes it will continue and that it will
become a permanent annual activity.
Regular meetings are held on the second
Wednesday of every month. The meetings begin
at 7 p.m. and are usually held in the Pine Room
of Ballard Hall. The meetings are divided into
two groups-educational and social. Some of
the speakers this year have been Dean Grinnell
and Dean Richards, of the College of Agricul-
ture, who illustrated their talks with colored

HE Horticulture Club of the University of New
Hampshire had its beginning in l94O when
a group of students decided that they wanted
more out of college than classroom training
alone. The general feeling with which the club
was formed was that students should be given
a means through which they would become bet-
ter acquainted with their professors and class-
mates. lt was felt that in this way interest would
be stimulated in the science and problems of
horticulture, and also that each student would
learn to respect and cooperate with his fellow
The way in which the Horticulture Club
achieves the above mentioned goal varies from
year to year. Members of the Horticulture staff

are asked to speak and guest lecturers are pre-
sented whenever possible.
The primary means of finance is through a
cider-making project, occurring annually, in
which the members get together once a week to
press the apples. This income has been sufficient
to carry the club through the year.
Other activities which take place include an
annual trip, or outing, and exhibits on different

HE Poultry Science Club at the University of
New Hampshire was organized on March 20,
1939 by students and members of the faculty
for the purpose of promoting and stimulating
interest in poultry husbandry among members of
the student body. This group is affiliated with
the Eastern Collegiate Poultry Club.
The club is not confined to poultry maiors but
is open to all students of the University who
have an interest in poultry. Meetings are held
once a month, and members of the club have
entertained speakers from some of New Hamp-
shire's leading poultry farms, as well as men
from commercial feed and supply companies.

of the shows and activities which were spon-
sored by the Poultry Department. One of the
high spots for the year was the Club's Annual
Baby Chick and Egg Show. This show is put on
to stimulate competition through selection of
eggs and chicks by poultry men, 4-H clubs, FEA
organizations, and college students.
The annual chicken barbecue held in the
spring is another event that has always proved
very entertaining-apart from satisfying the ap-
petites of all members.
Because of the many and varied interests of
the organization, the faculty and students form
a close knit, homogeneous group.

club is to promote interest in folk dances and
related subiects. The people of Durham and the
students of the University of New Hampshire
participate in the activities of the club, which
include practice and teaching of folk dances and
giving dance demonstrations for different organ-

HE extension of student government, and an
increase in dormitory achievements-these
were the twin arms of Inter-Dormitory Council
in the seventh year of its iob of governing the
residents of seven men's dormitories.
A monthly dormitory newsletter, the inaugu-
ration of Judiciary House Councils, and the
awarding of trophies to dormitories for special
achievements were some of the means used
by IDC to further its obiectives. Headed by
Charles Phillips of Hetzel, the Council made
considerable progress towards its goal of build-
ing greater student leadership among dormitory
Aiming for stronger student government, IDC
cooperated with Student Senate to complete the

In its attempt to strengthen dormitory spirit,
the Council this year awarded a scholastic tro-
phy to Alexander Hall, for making the highest
academic standing in the previous year. The
Ralph McGrath Peter Baute
Council also sponsored a contest for the best
dormitory snow sculpture in the 1954 Winter
Carnival. East-West Hall copped the IDC trophy,
out of the three dormitories entered.
Two other moves were made for closer inte-
gration ofthe seven men's dormitories. A monthly
"Inter-Dorm Newsletter" was distributed to all
dormitory residents, noting the actions of IDC
and keeping them up-to-date on dormitory social
and athletic events. The CounciI's Athletic Com-
mittee has been working on a separate schedule
of inter-dormitory athletics, on the theory that
the dormitories will take a greater interest in
intra-murals if they are competing against other

LEXANDER opened the 1953-54 season with
a full crew of 141 residents, approximately
one-half of these were freshmen. llt was largely
due to the cooperation and enthusiasm of the
freshmen that Alexander's social and athletic
calendars came off so successfully.l
The usual number of dances, smokers, and
open-house receptions were held during the
year. A new affair, a tea dance, was inaugu-
rated during the Winter Carnival week-end.
Alexander also participated in the snow sculp-
ture contest for the first time in its history.
At this writing, plans are formulated for an
open-house testimonial for Mrs. Norman Alexan-
der late in April. Mrs. Alexander is the wife of
the late Norman Alexander, Dean of Men, for
whom the dormitory was named.
Academically, Alexander has not fared as
well, as in 1952-53, when it won the lnterdor-
mitory Council's Scholastic trophy. lt is hoped
that second semester grades will compensate for
the slow start and allow us to keep the trophy
Student government-wise, Alexander has had
a highly successful year. A great step was taken
forward when Alevander voted to establish an
elected House Council, a dormitory disciplinary
committee, through which all complaints, prob-
lems, and suggestions of a disciplinary nature
are handled by the residents themselves.

NDER the guidance of our beloved Mare-
Mrs. Inez Adams-who spent her first year
with us, Hetzel Hall has completed another fine
year in its usual high position among the campus
We ranked first scholastically among men's
dormitories and made a sizable contribution to
the athletic phase of campus life, participating
in football, basketball, softball and a ping pong
tourney for Hetzelites.
Our leading social event of the year was
a hayride, followed by a house dance, at which
Mare performed her now famous version of the
Bunny-hop, and at which a combo supplied the
music. Hetzel was host to some 20 children for
the annual Christmas party, featuring Santa and
a magician, food and gifts, and a good time
for both the children and the Hetzelites.
To Mare goes our deepest gratitude for her
wonderful influence on the lives of all the l5l
men of Hetzel. We of Hetzel are passing a full
and rich tradition on to those who follow us
and we hope that they will accept and foster it,
and in turn pass it on through the years.

crammed the walls of East-West in September

NGELHARDT HALL is one of the newer men's

on the quadrangle iust in the rear of East-West.
It is not an imposing structure, but to about one

days a week.
The officers for the year 53-54 were: Gor-
don Wiggin, President, Sticky Fingers Larry
Clark, Treasurer, Pete lDocl Baute, Vice Presi-
dent, Charles Snow, Secretary, and Paul lBerniel
Belair, social chairman. Half way through the
semester Gordon resigned and Pete took over
Paul Belair arranged several smokers which
were well attended by the residents. Our first
guest was Professor Steele, who entertained us
with various piano selections and an interesting
talk on the masters. Prof. Holden gave a timely
message entitled, "Why the Republicans Won't
Win in Fifty Four." Professor DeBaun also en-
tertained us by reading selections from his pri-
vate collection. Afterwards we discussed educa-
tion in the American schools.
Our other activities were varied. The dorm
took part in the annual Quadrangle Derby. Our
entrant added prestige to Engelhardt by mak-
ing the run in l.54 minutes. To highlight the
year and show our conscientiousness and con-
cern we held several unauthorized fire drills.
ln closing, I wish to extend my thanks to the
men who supported my beer parlor in the top
floor service room.
T is late. Lights are being extinguished all over
Durham. But down on the southern periphery
activities are iust commencing. Social Chairmen
Columbia and Desmond gather with Azier and
Jameson to plan winning Homecoming decora-
tions and morbid snow-sculptures befitting the
mental darkness and atmosphere of the hall.
Al Zullo awakens, brushes a clearing in the
ashes covering his desk, and plots strategy to
win the League "A" basketball championship
for Gibbs. Thurston posts a series of misspelled
notice, and retires. Veep-Anarchist Albee puffs
on his pipe and remains immovable in his be-
liefs. Treasurer Carlson and President Gillette
collect money. They are broke.
O'Neil and Wheeler try to keep order on Wil-
fert's floor, while "Dad" sits stone-like staring
over his gin bottle with bloodshot eyes, oblivious
to all disturbance.
The next morning, Manny sweeps up gore and
broken bottles, and tells Mrs. Wallace, "Things
look good this morning." They do?
EADING the list of Fairchild's activities this
year were a highly successful dorm dance,
and a Christmas Party for underprivileged or-
phan children that must be counted as one of
the best on campus. Close runners-up were the
Dad's Day weekend festivities with the tradi-
tional cider and donuts, Winter Carnival week-
end during which Fairchild played host to the
relatives and friends of its housemen, and a
smoker in March.
Though it can scarcely claim preeminence in
sports, Fairchild was none-the-less active. Sports
Chairman John Fine sparked a new interest in
basketball, and came up with new plans to
form a wrestling team, inspired, without a doubt,
by intramural wrestling of a less formal sort on
On balance, Fairchild considers the year a
successful and spirited one, not only from a
social point of view, blut from an academic
one as well. Fairchild continues to contribute
men to the highest scholastic ranks, as well as
to other campus cultural and spiritual functions.

dormitory, meet twice a month. At these meet-
ings suggestions, criticisms, and problems are
discussed, the aim being more effective house
councils and better inter-dorm co-ordination.
Aside from general discussion, WIDC has
many specific duties. Each year it awards two
cups, one to the woman's dorm having the best
carnival snow sculpture, and one to the dorm
with the highest scholastic average. Election of
officers and room assignments are conducted by
WIDC members, and instruction given to the new
officers. Advisors to freshman dorms are ap-
pointed by WIDC and are automatically mem-
bers of it.
This year the first Transfer Tea, for ,women
students coming to UNH from other schools,
was given. A recommendation concerning the
lengthening of hours for women was made to
the Senate by request of the Women's Rules
Committee of Student Senate. The clothing rules
in the dorms were revised and brought up to
date. Separate dormitories for freshman girls
was discussed, and a recommendation for mixed
dorms was sent to the Housing Committee.
This is the third year WIDC has been in ex-
istence, and it is still in a period of revision
and growth. But the recognition and use of
WIDC by the administration, Student Senate,
and the House Councils has led to a stronger
and more unified body. It is our belief that this
trend will continue to the benefit of all women
residents of UNH.
The officers of WIDC for the past year have
been: President, Shirley Richardson, Vice Presi-
dent, Nancy Paulsen, Secretary, Ruth Blakney,
Treasurer, Mary Sprague, and Publicity, Joan

mosphere, North is always the center for numer-
ous teas and activities sponsored by the Uni-
versity. The coftee hours after football gomes
and at other times throughout the year were
always well attended with much 'fun had by all.
The charitable activities sponsored by the
girls included a Thanksgiving dinner for a needy
'family and a Christmas party for underprivi-
leged children. lt would be hard to determine
who had the most 'fun at the party-the children
or the girls themselves.
A maior part of our dorm life was our house-

fulness will long be remembered by those girls
who had the opportunity to share an important
part of their lives with our gracious "Mrs. Mac."

HE lnterfraternity Council is the representative
and governing body of the fourteen fra-
ternities established on this campus. The council
formulates rushing rules, regulates rushing, and
pledging, and otherwise helps to promote better
feeling and a spirit of unity among the fraterni-
ties. The Council consists of a senior and iunior
member from each fraternity house on campus.
This year has been one of the most outstand-
ing in the history of the lnterfraternity Council.
The Council established, for the first time, a four
year scholarship to be given annually to an
outstanding, incoming freshman male student.
Also inaugurated this year was the establishment
of a minimum grade point average in order to
be able to rush a fraternity.
Once again, the annual l. F. C. workshop
met with great success. The topics discussed this
year were scholarship, Greek Week, and public
relations. Many concrete suggestions were forth-
coming and as a result many new programs were
Another innovation for the Council was the
publishing of the lnterfraternity Council Hand-
book. The booklet was prepared by the Council,
with the valuable assistance of its advisor, Dean
Medesy, with the hope that it would improve
communications between the Council and the
fraternity membership at large.
Added to the standing committees were the
Services and the Brochure Committees. The func-
tion of the Services Committee is to furnish the
fraternities with the service of coordinating the
work and ideas of the individual house treasures,
stewards, and special and standing committee
chairmen. The Brochure Committee's function is
to outline the development and progress of the
Council. This brochure is then submitted in com-
petition with other Councils for the N. l. C.
Annual I. F. C. awards were given to the
The Interfraternity Council sponsored Song
Fest in the spring which brought forward the

The working theme of the lnterfraternity Coun-
cil this year has been one of the greater achieve-
ments and constructive endeavors toward
reducing any cleavage between fraternity and
non-fraternity groups through cooperation with
other student government organizations.

house which showed the greatest improvement
in scholarship for the previous academic year,
and to the one which contributed the most to
the campus blood donor drive. Also inaugurated
this year was "The Good Citizen Award" given
to an outstanding person in the community.
The lnterfraternity Council wishes to thank the
various representatives on campus who have so
graciously offered their help and services to the
Council. Their efforts have been greatly appre-
ciated by all the fraternities in the Council as
well as the members of the Council.
CACIA FRATERNITY began its history at the
University of New Hampshire on December
3, 1949. Since the installation that night of the
29 original charter members, Acacia has grown
rapidly in membership until now it is the largest
house on the UNH campus. Paralleling this
growth in membership has been its lively history.
By the termination of final exams in June
l953, Acacia could scan proudly over one chap-
ter in this history, the spring semester.
lt began with the pledging of 33 new men
and participation in Stunt Night, a skit that
recalled humorously the bygone days of silent
movies. ln April, Acacia won the coveted Me-
morial Union Plaque, given "For Outstanding
Contribution Toward the Memorial Union Build-
ing." Keen rivalry pervaded the competition 'for
the award, and to cop it, the house had to place
high in financial contribution, to support the
winning candidate for queen, Miss Evelyn Suu-
tari, and to build the prize-winning float. Later,
the fraternity collaborated with Theta U to cop
the Junior Prom Float contest.
May was a busy month. Junior Prom weekend,
Acacia celebrated its traditional "Night on the
Nile." It added another trophy to its growing
collection, taking first place in Song Fest. John
Dearborn won the outstanding male actor award
in the lnterhouse Play Contest.
With the return of the brothers to UNH in
September came anticipation for the many and
varied activities on the autumn social calendar.
And now, for the first time since it was built in
l95l, a smooth green lawn surrounded the
large, white house at lO-l2 Mill Road.
The weeks whisked by, and each brought pep
rallies, smokers, serenading, and exchange sup-
pers. Acacia ventured into the annual Mayor-
alty campaign, backing Jack Weeks as Frank
Muck, a swaggering mixture of Casanova and
adventurer straight from the African jungles.
Later, the house entered Woodsmen's Weekend
competition, and tied Theta Chi for the first
Soon it was first snow flakes and December,
and time for the traditional formal, Mil Arts
Ball. Saturday evening, following the Ball, Aca-
cia billed its house dance "The Roaring Twen-
ties." At the Christmas Orphan's party everyone
attended but the orphans, who were quaran-
tined with scarlet fever lanyway, they got the
presentsl. -And then, finals.
Plunging into the first semester of 1954,
Acacians finished second in the Winter Carnival
ski events and moulded a tall snow sculpture,
one genie ski enthusiast, rising from a bathtub.
But the height of this "Spirit of Sitzmark" sculp-
ture was not enough to win, and fun and ex-
perience were the only rewards.
Among the athletes who represented Acacia
on varsity sports squads this year were sopho-
more linebacker "Doak" Walker in football,
Warren Lyon and George Holbrook, track, Bob
Lerandeau, lacrosse, and Dick Field, skiing.
But with the end of each spring semester go
some senior brothers. ln '54, they numbered
twenty. Each carries with him memories . . . of
cold winter morning, waiting for prexy Oeser's
'35 Ford to sputter into activity . . . the elec-
trical gadgets that clutter Beecher's and Saun-
der's room . . . recollections of married guys,
Cragin, Sawyer, Walker . . . Les and Bob
puzzling over their secretary and treasurer re-
ports . . . Lyon, Holbrook and Bob Kimball
preparing for track team excursions . . . Yeton
burning some more midnight oil . . . Lovell,
Morris, and Asadourian seated in the lounge,
expounding on varied political views . . . at
ii:l5, Lerandeau shouting "Last call for Dover"
. . . Teddy precariously balancing a tray of pies
on one hand . . . Murphy and Rand always "On
the hook". ..
And these seniors have watched a new fra-
ternity expand and flourish, have helped build
and been among the first occupants of the new
house, and have written much of Acacia's fast-
lengthening history. To each of them, Acacia
hails "Thanks, and best of luck to you."

ROM the little white house between Alpha
Xi Delta and Phi Mu step forth our con-
tributions to the seniors of l954. As they go
forward to meet the challenges of future lite
we glance into the lighter side of their past.
We are sorrowful over the departure of mod-
erate Tom, Peterborough's own Guernsey pro-
moter and how we'll miss sweet Bill, Alpha
Gamm's only platonic lover. Becker met his mate
and now he is standing his fate. Along with

"Mercurite Fredie" has promoted many different

Nick Wadleigh, who dedicated his four years to
being custodian of the Animal Husbandry barn.
Who is going to replace Rodger Laver? He has
been around a long, long time. Wait a minute,

We doubt it. We hail these noble examples of
The Alpha Gamma Rho Fraternity was founded
in l908, when two local fraternities from Ohio
State University and the University of Illinois
combined to form what has become the leading
national, agricultural, social fraternity. A. G. R.
has grown to include thirty-three chapters lo-
cated in state universities all over the country
and has a membership of over fourteen thou-
A. G. R. is constantly striving to provide an
atmosphere conducive to study. The eFtorts have
been well rewarded, for the house has continued
to maintain a high scholastic standing, finishing
first in fraternity standing for the last four se-
Omega Chapter demonstrated its ability in
many different lines this past year. The Livestock
Judging Team was composed of 10070 A. G. R.
men. The Dairy Cattle Judging Team was also
monopolized by men from A. G. R. as was the
Dairy Products Judging Team. The house cap-
tured the spotlight in the Woodsmen's Weekend
by winning the log rolling and cross-cut sawing
contests to take second honors.
Socially, the house has had a very successful
year. The men in the house are really putting
our motto "Friendliness is our greatest asset" to
work at the various activities taken up.

LPHA TAU OMEGA was the first Greek-letter
fraternity organized after the Civil War. lt
was founded at Richmond, Virginia, on Septem-
ber ll, 1865, and its first chapter was estab-
lished at the Virginia Military Institute at Lexing-
lts founders were three young Confederate
soldiers. Their prime object was to restore the
Union, to unite fraternally the young men of the
South with those of the North and to foster a
Christian brotherhood dedicated to the task of
achieving and cherishing permanent peace.
ATO has had a successful season in intra-
mural sports this year. The Taus started oFt the
intramural season by winning their league in
football with six straight wins, shutting out the
opposition in every game. However, the team
lost in the playoffs. Half-back Ken Dodge made
the all intramural team.
The basketball team continued the fine league
record of the football team by winning the
league also. This time the Taus did a little better
by winning the first game of the playoffs, but
losing in the finals.
ln the field of varsity sports, Charlie Sowerby,
Willie Johnston, Norm Merrow were members
of the Yankee Conference Champion football
team. Al Carlson was captain of both Cross
Country and Winter Track. ATO was well repre-
sented in Hockey this year, also. Skating with
captain Willie Johnston were Ed Githens, Marty

Fred White. Men out for lacrosse are Jim Miller,

On March l3th, the seven chapters of Kappa
Sigma here in New England sent delegates and
representatives to the annual Conclave. Over a
hundred Kappa Sigs from Brown, Dartmouth,
Mass State, Maine, Bowdoin, Vermont, and
M. l. T. converged on the campus. An informal
get-together at the house on Friday night was
followed by the business meeting the next morn-
ing. After dinner, visitors and hosts held a dis-
cussion period at the chapter. Later a banquet
was served at Commons. Featured among the
many speakers in attendance were President
Robert F. Chandler of UNH, Lt. Col. Silvertson,
U. S. M. C. Kappa Sigma Public Relations Cona-
missioner, District Director George Nueschafei'
of Boston and Grand Master Ed Kelly of Beta
Kappa. Following the food and festivities, the
brothers enioined to the chapter house for a
dance, to the music of "Buzz" Emerson and his
Wildcats. Surprise visitor of the day was na-
tional Kappa Sigma President H. Gardiner
Symonds of Houston, Texas. It marked the first
visit to the local chapter by a national president
in many years.
Prospects for the future are once again ex-
cellent. The Scarlet, Green and White promises
to be well represented in all intramural sports,
stunt nite, mayoralty, and social functions.
TANDING alone and isolated from the rest
of the campus, the Castle on the Hill brings
back many memories to those who know and
cherish Lambda Chi Alpha. Passing back through
the looking glass of time we see the Lambda
Chi's arriving on campus . . . some already at
work painting, fixing, hammering, sawing, and
doing what's necessary to get the house in tip
top shape for the year . . . if you look hard
enough you might even see Mrs. "Dee" rustling
something up to eat for dinner . . . in the dis-
tance you might come upon "Woodrow" Wilson
and Johnny Grant talking about "getting fixed
up" . . . l wonder who wants to get fixed up?

court Jack Abraham is trying out some new plays
with the football team but Jack has a perplexed
look on his face because all players aren't
present for practice. Here comes one player
now, it's "Mu Mu" Allen and he uses as an
excuse that Diana wanted some help with her
homework . . . hmmm? Moving along to the
inside of the house we hear someone talking on
the phone, "but Bob, I can't go to the movies
tonight," "oh, we'll be out early, Emily" . . .
I think someone is talking with someone in Alpha
Xi, guess who? Coming now is the bout of the
century. With increased popular demand the
championship tag team match in taking place.
One team is "The Irish Potato and The Golden
Greek", the other is "The Guinea Guinea Whop-

ruled a draw after one hour of furious action
. . . Time marches on!
Out in back of the Castle we see a group of
pledges working very hard on John BoheIe's
new car, polishing it. I think he bought a robin's
egg blue color because it goes so well with
blonds . . . I wonder if "Angie" had anything
to do with buying it? You may be wondering
why the pledges are polishing the car, well John
caught one of them mocking him saying "hawt
dawg" and "cowfee" a-Ia-Long Island style . . .
Time marches on . . . Mid-semester and Thanks-
giving having passed, we find everybody in the
chapter room, measuring, cutting, painting,
drawing and doing what's necessary to prepare
for the annual Comic Strip Character Dance of
Mil Arts weekend, yes, some of the boys need
sleep, but the decorations will be ready, won't
they. Frank and Sherm? . . . Same place, same
time but a week later-gay laughter, cheerful
voices of Dover orphans enioying the annual
Xmas party . . . Time marches on . . . It's snow
sculpture time and the boys can be seen work-
ing busy as bees carting ice from Oyster Bay
. . . And if you look hard enough you can see
Sherm Goulding drawing by candle light up in
the chapter room for "An Evening in Paris"
party. Time marches on . . . Thanks to Doc
Devoe the house finds itself having a worthy
advisor. From his advice the house finds itself
right up on top in scholarship, social activities
and extra-curricular activities. Time marches on

see good times ahead for the Lambda Chi's dur-
ing Founder's Day Dance, Junior Prom Week-
end, and the informal dances on Saturday
nights. Especially the beach parties of the sunny
Sundays . . . Thus in the future our alumni
will look back and reminisce over unforgettable
experiences at the "Castle on the HilI."
T the corner of Garrison Avenue and Mad-
bury Road, under the shade of Durham's
only weeping willow trees, one finds Omicron
Chapter of Phi Alpha Fraternity. Join us while
we see what the graduation seniors are doing.
ln the corner of the chapter room, we find
Bob "Goose" Hoos, the captain of the UNH
ski team, who is practicing his christy technique
and dreaming about his favorite ski iump in his
home town. Bob made quite a name for himself
in winter sports, not only in New Hampshire but
throughout the country. Sitting in another corner
we find Marv "Ex Ren" Levins, our contribution
to the draft, dreaming about Thursday afternoon
when he as Cadet Colonel will review the troops.
Marv is also known for his many achievements
on campus among which are being the past
president of the fraternity, Blue Key, High-U
Day, Pre-Law Club, Freshman Camp Counselor
and many student-faculty committees.
Hidden between two cushions on the couch
we find Art "Arturo Mason" Meyers trying to
decide which meeting to attend or girl to date.
Art found time to squeeze into his busy schedule
the treasurer of the lnterfraternity Council, Blue
Key, President of the Hillel Foundation, President
of the University Religious Council, Steward of
Freshman Camp and membership in other va-
rious organizations. Now we move upstairs where
we find Jerry "The Pish" Fisher sleeping through
his morning classes. Jerry who was V. P. and
pledge master, will always be remembered for
his melodious laugh and happy-go-lucky manner.
In the next room we find Dave "Muscles"
Cohen who is often seen around campus with
his yellow convertible and slide rule. Those
nightly classes on the art of weight lifting were
quite popular with the brothers of the house and
Dave's trips to Dover and Portsmouth saved
many a movie from bankruptcy. Watching Dave
we find Charles "Chuck Chuck" Eluto, our con-
tribution to Hetzel Hall where he served as
President of the dorm and Vice President of the
lnter-Dormitory Council, deeply engrossed in fig-
uring out a new diet in which he does not have
to give up food. These are Phi Alpha's gradu-

Here at Phi Alpha they have all been exempli-
fied in their greatest glory and excitement. How
can we forget the first time we tried papering
a wall and as each sheet went up another one
came down, or crashing into parked cars as we
practiced intra-mural sports on Fraternity Row,
or the nightly wars that occurred on the deck
or bull-sessions or all the many happy and
ioyous moments spent here at Phi Alpha.
Phi Alpha is a unique house. We may be
small in numbers but the services offered, ac-
tivities entered and social standing rank with the
larger houses on campus. The achievements of
the brothers will long be remembered by the
faculty and townspeople and will always be
regarded in the highest esteem. The bonds of
friendship among the brothers are strong and
all work, study, live and laugh together. Our
scholastic standing placed us above the all
men's average and this year we were presented
the award for scholastic achievement by the
The social life, our parties, dances and blasts

campus and off. Yes, we may be small in size-
but big in every other sense.

it HE little house that is always there"-is
the quoted phrase often heard when
people speak of the progressive house, Phi
Delta Upsilon, at the end of Fraternity Row.
Whether basketball, snow sculpture, or song
festivals, Phi Delta Upsilon is always there in
spirit and strength.
As the blossoms of Spring this year herald
the end of another winter, so do they end the
four years of companionship and pleasure for
the twelve "old men" of Phi Delta Upsilon. This
distinct group of individuals include Don Bruce
-co-pilot of "Bomb" runs to La Cantina, Ted
Fecteau-whose choice wit was the source of
endless laughter, George McKinnon-if not here,
he could always be located at Alpha Chi, Ray
Beaulieu-our ex-prexy, "Herk" Austin-the
"fried liverwurst sandwich" kid, Tom Clarkson-
"the cat" famous for his stability, Charlie Jones
-captain of the Phi My Safari, Bernie lsroe-
the smoke maker of the engineering department,
Ron Smith-the little biologist, Charlie Butterfield
-the long haired musician with the short hair
lYessiree, Bubl, Doc Hulme-the quiet man, Jim
Dowaliby-our gift to the world of music, Pete
Sickles-"The Phantom Strikes Again", and Ron
Hill-whose exemplary contributions to campus
activities will long be remembered.
Phi Delta Upsilon also has many social func-
tions to its credit. Among the prominent social
affairs of the past year were the parties held
for all the big weekends. There are many pleas-
ant memories to be remembered by all those
who participated in the affairs held at Phi Delta
Upsilon. Parties were planned for Mil Art Week-
end, Winter Carnival, Junior Prom and many
Exchange suppers and evening serenades are
also pleasant memories for all of us. Along with
the good times were also the hardships of
exams and studying. But it was worth it to find
out that Phi Delta Upsilon is nearing the top
scholastically again. Phi Delta Upsilon is cer-
tainly proud of its well-rounded activities.
Phi Delta Upsilon is a local fraternity and has
been so during all of its 29 years of existence.
Its independence has been due to the fact that
we have always believed in the individual and
his rights. Because of this we have felt that we
do not want to be bound by any national's
restrictions. A Phi D. U. is restricted neither in
the religious bias of his organization, nor in
his fraternity's racial preiudices-because of
this there are none. This fraternity includes both
Jew and Gentile among its membership, also
both black and white. We feel that our 29 years
of existence as a local is something to be proud
of and so we are planning a gala 30th reunion
Our members have been active in all the out-
standing activities and organizations on campus.
Among those groups represented are the Outing
Club, Blue Key, Blue Circle, Concert Choir and
the Glee Club, Mask and Dagger, Arnold Air
Society, Canterbury Club, Newman Club, Junior
Hotel Greeters of America, Hotel Sales Man-
agement Association, Alpha Chi Sigma, AIEE,
AICE, Phi Epsilon, Student Union, International
Relations Club, and others.
With the recounting of our achievements and
the memories that we, who are left behind, have
gathered, we say, with deep regret, goodby to
our seniors. We hope that they will carry away
with them all the happy recollections that they
have obtained. We wish them the best of luck
in all of their endeavors.

N March fourth, 1918, the first chapters of
Phi Mu Delta were formed. A successful
extension program has continued throughout the
years. Each chapter has exemplified a spirit of
diversified and enthusiastic interest and par-
ticipation in campus activities. The Nu Beta
chapter at UNH attests to this.
At Homecoming Nu Beta welcomed back old
and new alumni and had what has been termed
the most successful return ever experienced. A
buffet dinner accommodated our Dads on Dad's
Day and our annual underprivileged children's
Christmas party was a huge success. Each of the
University's three major formal dances of the
year was followed by a house dance, while in-
formal dances and house parties helped to break
up the weekly study program.
During the past year Phi Mu Delta has been
active in many campus activities including Blue
Key, Inter-Fraternity Council, Scabbard and
Blade, The New Hampshire, Arnold Air Society,
Sophomore Sphinx and the Varsity Club.
After a highly successful rushing period thirty
new men were pledged to become brothers of
Phi Mu Delta. Each one will add much to the
house and they will soon know Phi Mu Delta's
emphasis on moral, social and sports activities,
scholastic records and participation in campus
Twenty stalwart sons of Phi Mu Delta, out-
wardbound, will reluctantly leave their maiestic
mansion this June to bestir this troubled world
with their hopes and ambitions. We, the younger
brothers will always remember Ray Daigle, the
debonaire diplomat . . . the antics of Clark
Miller, who always made a party . . . Dave
Hardy, a conversationalist on four wheels . . .
Curly Boudette and his love for wine, women
and skiing . . . John Desiardin and his frequent
query "Got a fourth for Bridge?" . . . Ron Guit-
tar, "The Round Ron" and his contagious laugh-
ter . . . Prexy Bob Potter and a iob well done
. . . Cal Canney, who was the best nepotist to
edit the GRANITE . . . Don Maclnnes, the
"Golden Greek' '... Stu Smith, always ready
for a quick trip to Dover . . . George Sawyer,
who is now Skidmore bound . . . Tom Sears,
from ethenol to hair tonic with a hearty Hi-Ho
. . . Bob "the Ole Sage" Sager, a guitar in
one hand and a glass in the other . . . Linc
Fenn "Big Ed Fenley," whose philosophies still
haunts his eerie den . . . "Honest" Dick Bruce,
the walking man's friend . . . Bob Hackett, man
of mystery and blackiack fame . . . Bob Schroe-

of the New Hampshire . . . Bill Clark, the wildest
man in the world . . . Marsh Hilton "Ed Tilton,"
who alternates between Dover and the Delt
House . . . and Mrs. Gile, our most patient and
To you our graduates, we wish to express
our thanks for the innumerable kind deeds you
have done for the house and the countless hours
of good fellowship you have afforded us. ln
parting we can only paraphrase one of the early
Yankee philosophers and declare: "That steel
string of hope and friendship will bind us to-
gether-forever and now."
S we see the month of June rolling down on
us with ever increasing speed, we look at
the seniors ofthe house and wonder where each
will be next year at this time. For instance,
where will Donald "Nesmith" Moulton be? Will
he still be wandering the halls of Nesmith with
a bewildered expression on his countenance?
And where will his roommate John Jenthens
Uenkinsl be? Indo-China? Formosa? Germany?
Juarez? And what about Wild Bill Gallagher?
Will he be screaming "Gung Ho!" as he leads
his platoon into battle at some far frontier? Will
he gain glory and the prized "Hero" medal?
Will Robert Nuttle be cleaning test tubes or will
he see the light of day and forsake his alchemy
for a worthwhile occupation? What will Russ
"Got-a-deal" Rubeor be doing? Promoting a
million dollar deal on the stock market? Selling
left-handed bible cranks or Colonial fireplaces?
Where will our married man, John Clark, be?
Will he be dreaming up new and better ways to
make atomic weapons? And will Robert Haesche
forget his New Hampshire training and become
iust another Long Island Indian again? Will Ron
Gladowski keep going along in his same old
worrisome way? Will he finally find an inter-
viewer who does not think that he's too young?
And what about our young gentlemen, Steve
Thomas, B. D.? Will he be advising the President
on economic affairs or will be still be arguing
for his A in Economics 25?
Even more we find ourselves remembering
the antics of these seniors. Already we are
reminiscing about such things as Johnny Clark's
fudge, Bilka Gallagher's headstands and push-
ups, the smell of formaldahyde that marked
Moulton's return from classes, Knobby Nuttle's
futile arguments with Don McLeod, Rubeor's
fabulous deals, Jenthen's constant state of frus-
tration, and Haesche's "dunkey roast." And
who could forget Steve Thomas fighting it out
for his A or Ronnie Gladowski, boy editor, turn-
ing out his Gama Mu "Echo."
As we reminisce we think of the real progress
that the house has made this year. We remem-
ber the pledge project of painting the "office"
and the three who managed somehow to paint
the hallways. We remember the parties, both
stag and drag lll, the informal iazz "concerts,"
the very dignified exchange suppers, and all the
rest of the social activities.
The war between Rebel Zimmerman and Gen-
eral Sherman, Ken Smith's baby axe, Blodgett's
. . . And then we wrote . . .", Sandstedt's in-
numerable names, Al Lelisle's trips to Lowell,
McLeod and Gladowski commuting to Dover,
Spike's "Dee-dee-dee," are also prominent in
our minds. Other memorable highlights were
the complete defeat and demoralization of the
fall pledge class when they attempted to raid
the house, the marriage of Johnny Clark, and
Russ's U. S. S. Neversail.
One deplorable aspect of the house was the
lack of practical iokers and the high incidence
of strange accidents ranging from doors and
kegs in various people's beds to the incident
of Fenton to General Lee's proclamations. Other
noteworthy occurrences were the search for a
suitable house mother lage 2Ol, the sudden
appearance of those real-gone golf hats and
the various caustic letters, both serious and non-
ln sports, PiKA made a big step forward as
we tied for the championship of our league in
football and fioored a good team in basketball.
Although the latter team lost three games, it
never lost one by more than ten points. The
most outstanding thing in sports was the manner
in which we consistently got into the hair of one
of the larger houses on campus by upsetting
All in all, it was a great year at the little
white house on Strafford Avenue. We hope that
next year will be an even greater year, so that
we may continue to be proud to call ourselves
S this semester comes to a close, the brothers
and pledges of S. A. E. bid farewell to
seventeen graduating seniors, cmd the entire
house looks back over an enjoyable year. Va-
rious improvements have taken place, such as
painting the house inside and out, a new living
room rug, and a new floor in the kitchen. Other
smaller renovations have taken place for which
we are grateful to all the brothers for their co-
operation. With the graduating of our seniors
we lose a great deal of leadership along with

We started our social calendar oft in the fall
by receiving the freshmen and transfer girls at a
tea in October. This was followed up by a buffet
supper at Homecoming for the alumni and their
guests, enabling us to relive old memories with
old S. A. E.'s. We celebrated our Queen Marilyn
Needham's coronation at our Bowery Brawl on
Mil Arts weekend. The house literally rocked with
Tyrolian during our Winter Carnival Bavarian
party, with everyone getting in the swing of
things with authentic Austrian costumes. Exchange
dinners and coffee hours have rounded out our

HE Beta Boys came rolling back to Durham
this September as hearty a crew as ever
gathered in the pillared mansion on Madbury
Road. Bruce Dick and Larry Dumont had broken
a hundred co-ed hearts during the summer by
entering into the holy state of matrimony, and
within a 'few months that rag-time kid, Danny
Carrol, followed their example.
During the early weeks of school, while the
rest of the campus became involved with the
politics of mayoralty, Sigma Beta remained
strangely aloof, but the mysterious midnight ses-
sions paid off when the house erected the win-
ning Homecoming decorations.
The tradition of victory was now established.
One week early in February, Big Chief Lefty Cree
sacrificed his nine o'clock bedtimes to go out in
search of the white stuff for a snow sculpture.
His sixty trips were not in vain, although he was
still too shy to accept the tophy from the Car-
Within a few short weeks, Blue Key an-
nounced its annual Stunt Night and the Beta
Boys, in secret midnight session, voted to enter.
The evening before the final tryouts the com-
mittee held its first meeting and decided on a
plot, "The Trial of Fifi de Pansie." Dialogue
problems were eliminated by presenting the skit
in French-lsuch as Paris never heardi. John C.
Driscol gave an English narration of the story to
help those with untrained ears. When the eve-
ning ended, the house walked off with second
prize. There is still some confusion as to whether
this was because of the skit's excellence or the
fact that only two men's houses were competing.
Sigma Beta's greatest triumphs this year were
Tony Nadeau's parties, from a little pumpkin
carving aFfair to the big brawls of Mil Arts and
Winter Carnival-they were the greatest.
With the coming of June nearly half the
brothers will be leaving these beer-stained halls,
but they will not be forgotten. We shall always
remember Peter Ried's lilting Irish melodies, and
Paul Canney's sweethearts from Portsmouth Jun-
ior High. The TV room won't be the same with-
out John Hood and the silent Prof, Red Pilon.
Warren Kingsbury may be far away in the land
of Massachus, but his colorful phrases will stay
here with us, as will Barry Ladd's lectures on
the origins of Christmas. Bob Welch's occasional
visits from Theta U will be missed, but Lennie
Willy will stay behind to carry on the tradition.
Buzz Gardner will leave this land of term papers
and with him goes Jack Oudens, dish washer
deluxe, and the terror of the night watch. And,
with the rest of the seniors, Prexy John C. Driscol
bids the Beta house farewell.
Under the leadership of our senior brothers,
Sigma Beta has been climbing to the top of the
heap and given us the habit of winning. We,
the remaining, promise to keep up the tradition.

NE hundred and seven chapters in 44 states
make up the national organization of Tau
Kappa Epsilon. "TEKE" has New England chap-
ters at the Universities of New Hampshire, Maine,
Rhode Island, and Connecticut. Over the years,
"TEKE" has accumulated a number of famous
alumni. Some of the better known in the musical
world are Stan Kenton, Freddy Martin, Les Paul
and Tex Beneke.
ln 1932 Alpha-Nu Chapter of Tau Kappa Ep-
silon was established here at UNH. Over the
years T. K. E. has been, and is still recognized
as a fraternity of scholarship, friendship, and
fruitful college activity.
These facts are proven by the achievements
thai' the "TEKES" have shown. ln scholastic
standing Tau Kappa Epsilon has consistently
been among the top three and often first of the
fraternities on campus. "TEKE" is well repre-

This June will bring to a close, for nine
seniors, four years of college and fraternity life
which they would not trade for anything. Here's
to Tom Pulsifer, our Rebel captain of the Rifle
Team . . . Dana Pearson, the Psychology major
who made case studies out of all the boys in the
house . . . Bill Dustin who maiored in being our
Prexy, Senior Skulls, Inter-Fraternity Council and
Arnold Air Society . . . and minored in studying
. . . Ed Madden, who plays so sweet a horn he
is second only to Gabriel . . . and Charley
Despres, one of those real gone musicians, need
we say more? . . . George Clark, who is known
far and wide for last minute dashes to eight
o'clock classes . . . Hartly Souther, who has that
fabulous ability to tell a ioke and make you
laugh, even though you've heard it before . . .
John Sowerby, a handy man with a gun and a
great shot, however, he doesn't need one of his
muzzle loaders for a blast . . . and "TEKES"
Elmer Fudd, Paul Blood. lt'll be a long time be-
fore we forget any of them.
This year has been a banner year for the
Alpha-Nu "TEKES." We have participated in a
maiority of the campus activities as well as sev-
eral chapter functions. Although we received no
special recognition in competitive activities, we
have experienced many hours of great fun work-
ing together. We booted Maine on the "Bear"
end for homecoming and our Schiltzmark Clown
caused a few chuckles among campus visitors
during Carnival weekend. Our parties have en-
ioyed particular success, especially our Western
Saloon with a few of the brothers wanted by
Founders Day was observed by a banquet at
Warrens in Kittery, Maine. This annual function
of "TEKES" the nation over will long be re-
membered as inspirational as well as enter-
taining. Carnival weekend party with our newly
installed pinning ceremony long will be remem-
bered by the brothers and their sweethearts.
Exchange suppers also presented enioyable eve-
nings for all as well as some delicious food.
During the past year our house has had its
face lifted. We have modernized every room in
the house and have made an all purpose rumpus
room in the cellar. By the acquisition of much
new furniture, all of a very modernistic design,
a new contemporary appearance has come to
our living room. Many of our alumni have failed
to recognize it, because the change has been so
complete. We are all extremely proud of our

this year, and the previous three, as years of
fun and brotherhood. We will all long to re-
turn when we think of the true "TEKE" spirit we

HE year 1954 sees fourteen senior brothers
leaving the University and Theta Chi. All have
contributed much to our life and leave behind
many pleasant memories. There is the "old
guard," consisting of Fred Graves . . . We'll
always remember Freddie, slaving over Robin
the Hood's campaign and displaying his skiing
ability . . . and Joe, "brother of long standing,"
Copp with his song fest struggles. And then there
is . . . Leighton "Ace Reporter" Gilman with
his many activities . . . Rog "Captain" Berry
and his complaints . . . Bill Hutchinson with his
two troubles, women and "Florence". . ."Quiet"
Bob Keefe, the verbal gymnast . . . Don
"Wheels" Wheeler, who slept anywhere but on
the deck . . . Don "Rocky" Wood and his snow
gathering expeditions with "Sunny' '... Eddie
"The Nose" Cantin, Prexy of the Ugly Club . . .
"Red" Austin and the proverbial question, "Have
you got any gum on you, Dick?" . . . Bill "Presi-
dent of Alpha Chi Sigma" Andrews and his labs
with "Liz" . . . Dave "Deacon" Richardson, "E, B.
Rideouts' New Hampshire representative" . . .
Tom "Snowball" Snow, captain of the sack team.
This past year has been a memorable one
for many reasons. Among them . . . the may-
oralty campaigning, working on Homecoming
decorations, competing in Woodsman's Week-
end, the Snow, Sculpture, the Indoors Ski Meet,
Stunt Night lwe didn't win, but we had funl,
and receiving acceptances from every bid we
sent out, for the second year in a row.
The three married brothers: Bob Cuthbertson,
Fred Tilton, and Monte Childs, have two little
Theta Chi's, with another one on the way.
Theta Chi was also well represented this year
in such organizations as l. F. C. with Bob Keefe
as ex-vice-president, and Norris Browne as its
new prexy, Blue Key, with Leighton Gilman as
President, Varsity Club, Concert Choir, Outing
Club, and honorary societies of Scabbard and
Blade, Arnold Air Society, AIEE, and ASME.
The Zeta's have again had a very successful
year on campus and it is with regret that the
graduating members leave. With the outstanding
pledge class, it is promising that the Theta Chi's
will maintain their high standards and good
position on campus in the years to come.
On April 19, 1865, at Norwich University a
group of students met to organize a local fra-
ternity which in future years turned into one of
America's largest social fraternities, Theta Chi.
Since 1910 Zeta Chapter, the second oldest na-
tional fraternity on campus, has been active in
campus affairs winning many campus trophies
and placing men in positions of campus leader-
At the present time there are 111 chapters

in New England. Theta Chi and its predecessor,

HE year 1953-54 has been a year of im-
provement and success for Theta Kappa Phi,
strategically located between Schofield and
Sawyer. Sucess has come in the form of athletics,
campus activities, honors, and improvement in
On the athletic field, Theta Kappa Phi was
well represented in varsity sports with l2 men
on the football team led by co-captain Joe
Regis. We have two men on the hockey team,
Bob Brophy in the nets and George Poirier in
the 'Forward line. On the baseball team, Theta
Kap was led by hard hitting captain George
Cullen supported by Nick Collela, Ed Callahan,
and Frank Zecher. We also excelled in inter-
mural sports, having copped the All-Point Tro-
phy for 1953 and we are in the race again this
year for the trophy. Theta Kaps are found to
be represented in Scabbard and Blade, Arnold
Air Society, Senior Skulls, Blue Key, Varsity Club
and Newman Club.
Theta Kap's lump in the scholastic standing
of the fraternities was significant, going from
a 2.1 to a 2.3 plus average. "All the brothers
This year, as in years past, we have had our
usual successful rounds of bulfets, house par-
ties, and afternoon coffee hours. This year's re-
view would be incomplete, however, without spe-
cial recognition of our seniors led by President
Tom Mullaney who was particularly outstanding
on campus, being President of Senior Skulls, Sec-
retary of Scabbard and Blade, and Secretary
of the lnterfraternity Council. Tom will also be
remembered for his extended weekends home.
Next we have Jolly John Burke who has been
an outstanding ball player on Chief Boston's
squad for three years. Jim "Stiger" Keough . . .
a loyal end in football for four years, Vice-
President of Scabbard and Blade, member of
Senior Skulls, "that picture of Jackie Lee." Paul
"Aristotle" Amico . . . member of Senior Skulls,
outstanding back for Chief Boston's Wildcats for
three years. George Cullen . . . our genial for-
mer Secretary and hard working captain of the
baseball team. Joe Regis . . . co-captain of this
year's football team and hard running halfback.
Joe was always up for the 7:00 a.m. Mass. Bill
"Nick" Collela . . . leader at all our tea and
beer parties, quarterback on Chief Boston's foot-
ball squad. Dick "Shaggy" McLaughlin . . . al-
ways kept the house clean as house manager,
and our great social chairman. Al Landry . . .
our electrical engineer and Dean's List man, for-
mer President of AIEE. Tom Canavan . . . end
on Chief Boston's Wildcat squad for three years,
Blue Key member. Ron Cote . . . our biologist
who is always ready with a ioke and a laugh.
Jim "Lobster" McKeon . . . our genial waiter,
Vice-President of Newman Club, Varsity basket-
ball man. John "Mocker" Mullen . . . our stew-
ard who always has a comeback-in more than
one way. Gerald Fitzgerald . . . our friendly
waiter, Treasurer of Scabbard and Blade, Fitzie
always liked snakes.
Our numerous social events this year have in-
cluded the house parties at Mil Arts, Homecom-
ing, Winter Carnival, Cabaret, Junior Prom, and
also our "coffee" hours before the big weekend
house dances. At Christmas we gave a party for
25 orphans from St. Joseph's Orphanage in
Rochester, Santa Claus, and all. We considered
this one of the highlights of the year, and any
onlooker would have had a difficult time decid-
ing who was having the most fun with the hoard
of toys, the boys from 3-12 years, or those
from 20 on. The satisfaction we all derived from
this party cannot be expressed.
We are very fortunate in the fine group of
pleges added to our house this year. With the
addition of these pledges also comes the loss
of our i4 seniors whom we will all miss, but
who know the doors of Theta Kappa Phi will
always be open to them.
lNCE i883 it has been felt that ioint consideration and action in a Panhellenic
association would help solve problems common to all, as well as help unite the
Greek system on college campuses.
Since l9l6, the Panhellenic Council at the University of New Hampshire has been
functioning as a member of the National Panhellenic Conference, which forms the
framework of sorority activity throughout the country. Thirteen members make up
our council, two from each sorority plus a president. Offices are automatically held
through a rotational system.
Important functions of the council are maintaining a high plane of fraternity life
and interfraternity relations within our university, compiling rushing rules, and gov-
erning rushing, pledging, and initiation. Each fall and winter, the council plans a
tea at which time an introduction to sorority life is given in the form of speeches
and informal discussion groups. The handbook is revised previous to these rush
periods. During this time, cr certain number of Panhellenic members remain neutral
and counsel those rushing.
Scholarship in fraternity life is emphasized and each year a scholarship cup is
awarded the sorority with the highest average. A bridge tournament is planned to
promote Panhellenic spirit in the sororities.
The council takes part in many activities on campus, contributing representatives,
time and money. One important proiect is to provide room and board for a foreign
Panhellenic then, works along the iudicial, scholastic and service lines, but the
year's activity is climaxed in April with a social function that, unfortunately for the
male populace, comes but once a year. M. E. R. P. Week lMale Economic Recovery
Programi with a formal dance and king is planned by the council, while the sororities
have beach parties and informal house dances on Saturday.
In order to realize our aim, this year the council planned a Panhellenic Workshop,
at which advisors and sorority representatives worked together in an effort to solve
many problems of fraternity life. Changes made in the rushing rules and the spirit
of co-operation among all sororities toward forming a more perfect Greek system
evolved from the Workshop.
Panhellenic Council has meant work and enioyment to us all. May next year's
council have the best of luck and be as proud to be a part of Panhellenic as we
have been throughout this year.

NCE again sixteen seniors make their way
out into the reality of the world leaving
behind unforgettable days of happiness. Bid-
ding farewell will be difficult since each girl
has a special place in our hearts. Though each
year we have lost a great deal in our gradua-
tion seniors, this year we gained a lot in our
new housemother, Mrs. Chase, known to us all
as "mom." She has been with us through serious-
ness and fun and has truly made this a "home
away from home."
The motto of this year's class has been "too
much to do and too little time to do it in." We
shall never forget our trials and tribulations of

building snow sculpture, traveling to all secluded
places for snow and the chilly return trips fol-
lowed by colds, our champion woodchoppers
and biologists bringing home the first prize
trophy for Woodmen's Weekend, our many pin-
nings and the serenades which followed, and
of course, the engagements with weddings in
view, the wonderful homecoming when all our
'53 graduates returned to renew old bonds and
to reminisce, the wedding shower at seven A.M.
in the morning, the seniors' unending chant
"when's the Senior breakfast?", the prowler's
visits, the inevitable pledge raids followed by a
fraternity auction causing slight embarrassment
to all those concerned, our gay party at Christ-
mas when Santa Claus presented the Seniors
with appropriate gifts, MERP weekend with its
vegetable coursages and beach parties at Plum
Island and the "barn" if you can call that a
beach l?l with a few distinguished faculty mem-
bers, rehearsals far into the morning for stunt
night and song fest, our exchange dinners al-
ways ending in a "bunny-hop", the tension and
last minute cramming for finals with a whole-
hearted attempt at maintaining quiet hours, but
our eFforts paid off, because last but not least,
the biggest surprise of the year-to National
as well as to ourselves, was placing second
scholastically on campus. None of these would
have been so successful without the spirit and
enthusiasm of our seniors . . . so our best goes
to our "silent" and conscientious prexy, Nancy
Hill, alias "Pete" and her innumerable phone
calls and air mail letters . . . To Patty Fay with
her New Year's resolution to tell no more iokes
and her undying loyalty to the prexy of Theta
Chi . . . To Jann G. our efficient V. P. who's busy
as a bee and always plans her time, yet always
saves a few minutes for fun and laughs . . . To
Ann our football queen and ardent skier who
wishes that New York were two hundred miles
closer . . . To Sophie who has time for other
people's problems and adds to the house so
much with her warmth and ioviality . . . to Val
whose loyalty is divided between UNH and
Dartmouth, but even her dancing feet won't get
her there without a car . . . and then there's
Carol our back-seat driver and insomniac, but
nevertheless she gets thirteen letters a day . . .
to our own Naomi, a sincere and active secre-
tary with a yearning to travel-say Norway? . . .
to Kuch, we wonder how she gets to class on
time, yet she's quick as a wink in the kitchen . . .
to Cal our efficient treasurer who utilizes two
phrases "pay your bills" and "coffee, anyone"
. . . to our Peggy who we wonder how such a
contagious laugh can come out of our littlest
senior . . . to Gail, our Colby transfer, who's
always a ready second for "spit" or a fourth
for bridge . . . to our wizard, Nancy Holt, who
designed snow scupture, co-directed stunt night,
held a iob, but keeps Dean's list always in her
grasp . . . to Jackie, our easy-going model
homemaker who probably has her eye on the
future and-Don . . . to lzzie, a girl always on
key wearing a ready smile and Shep's pin . . .
to Emily, our nomadic Senior who left us to make
college road hers and Doug's address ....
LPHA Xl DELTA was organized and estab-
lished by ten students at Lombard College
in Galesburg, Illinois on April l7, 1897. Today
there are 55 active chapters located throughout
the country with our headquarters at Evanston,
lllinois. Tau was founded on the UNH campus
in 'l9l4, and the present brick house on the
corner of Stratford and Ballard Avenues was
built in l923.
The T953-54 year has been a very successful
one both nationally and locally. Exams were
hardly over last June before Harriet Collins and
Jeanne were heading west to represent us at

the biennial National Convention at Pasadena,
California. Besides acquiring tans and lots of
new friends, they attended a few meetings and
came back with plenty of ideas for us.
Meanwhile, back at the house our corporation
was working on a lot of surprises for us. Septem-
ber came and we all returned to find deck insu-
lated, bright new furniture in our "place in the
sun" and Mrs. Hall, a versatile housemother,
who proved to be capable of doing everything
from planting flowers to helping with French
The year started oFf with a bang as we
cheered Digger O'Dell to success. Then Dad's
Day came with another surprise-a brand new
washing machine and a steam iron. Mrs. North,
our Province President, paid us a visit in No-
vember. Christmas festivities at Durham and Rye
Beach-thanks to Mrs. Holway-and before we
knew it Winter Carnival and Snow Sculpture
were behind us. Stunt Night showed us a bright
new future and then efforts were combined for
Ziggy, the Ugliest Man in the World. Both fall
and spring rushing brought lots of new faces
lto say nothing of spiritl to the brick house.
But right now we're concerned with the 18
old faces that we're going to miss like the
f D041 Z
dickens next year. We'll all be looking forward
to Homecoming next October.
We'll really be lost without Janie's Red Mon-
ster which, amazingly, hasn't collapsed yet and
Jane's ambulance-the talk of the campus. Mat-
ter of fact, it reminds us of those circus cars
. . . Out of the Monster comes . . . Judy and
Frannie-cigarettes and Sociology . . . Winnie
with her queenly shyness . . . Cynthia, the Little
Mother . . . Jeanie Gil, Miss Extracurricular, and
knitting, too . . . Harriet, exy-prexy . . . Connie,
a big future in Rochester . . . Mimi, the local
Travel Bureau . . . and Bing, "Good evening,
Kappa Sigma," and, of course-our chauffeur,
with "Okay troops." You think that was a car-
ful, but look at who's piling out of the ambu-
lance . . . Nancy Evans, with another skit script
under her arm . . . Joanie Clark, sitting up
with a Good Book . . . Al, secretarily dressed

Base . . . the mass exodus with skiis to the Out-

hilarious rehearsals and no more concern about
"ten years in a row."
All these memories-plus those concerning
our "Seminars," the sound of "Keefie" and his
exuberant tenor at seven a.m .... Mary, our
fabulous queen of the kitchen, and her answers
to "What's for dinner"-and her inexhaustable
supply of cookies . . . the coffee hours, ex-
change and faculty dinners, the morning raid on
the pledges-all will be with us for many years.

have shared in work and of fun during the last
few years we know will be continued by our
remaining sisters in the true spirit of Chi Omega.

flying squirrel was the cause of much comment.
We started the year by supporting Acacia's
candidate, "Frank Muck," in the Mayoralty cam-
paign. Then we settled down to painting the
house and building the partition for our sun
porch, construction engineered by Marilyn and
Joy. We also found time to give the annual Hal-
lowe'en party for twenty-six children from the
Dover Children's Home.
Then came the reorganization with the guid-
ance and encouragement of National Council
representative, Mrs. Mueller, and Dean Snyder.
The joy and anticipation of being sisters became
real when we were initiated Kappa Deltas in
December. We will always remember our na-
tional secretary, Ann Darsey, whose sweet south-
ern ways caused much good-natured ioking and
gained her many friends.
The first group of girls initiated Barbara Ed-
wards, president, Marilyn Hambleton, vice presi-
dent, Alice Chapman, recording secretary, Janet
Boisvert, treasurer, Judy Clock, social chairman,
and Sally Townsend, membership chairman.
Other members are Peggy Curtis, Charlotte Erik-
son, Ruth Fife, Joan Kadlec, Joenne Manor,
Kathy Walker, Evie Grottewit, Jane Morse, and
Jay Lofgren. Another group was initiated in Feb-
ruary, including Joannie Conover, Marilyn
Crouch, Carolyn Delbrouck, Dolores Eichorn, Syl-
via Kruczek, Irene Molloy, Carol Preller, Joan
Sarazan, Joan Sowerby, and Betty Torrey.
Patronesses initiated as alumnae members are
Mrs. Robert L. Bicker, Mrs. Clayton R. Cross, Mrs.
James A. Funkshouse, Mrs. Louisa D. Paine and
Mrs. Chester Titus.
Amidst our busy campus life, we found time
to participate in inter-house sports. Also, we will
remember our cook-outs in the spring, the sen-
iors being initiated into the Order of the Tray
by Mrs. Rideout, and "Anaconda," our cat with
the disposition. Other events were the exchange
suppers with Theta Chi and Pi Kappa Alpha,
among others, and the many times we swamped
the hot-dog man at ten o'cIock.
And the snow sculpture-Humpty Dumpty
cracked a million times and in a million places
-hauling snow-our frozen fingers and the
shortage of shovels.
Kappa Delta Sorority was founded on Oc-
tober 23, 1897, by four students at Longwood
College, Farmville, Virginia. Alpha Sigma Chap-
ter was organized as a local in 1919 and made
a national sorority on November 23, 1929. The
eighty-third chapter was installed at North Texas
State College, Denton, Texas, in February, 1954,
making Kappa Delta the fourth largest national
Pan-Hellenic sorority. The national philanthropy
of the sorority is the care and aid of crippled
children. Six beds in the Crippled Children's
Hospital in Richmond, Virginia, are supported
annually. This work is maintained mainly through
the sale of Christmas seals, designed by and
sold only to Kappa Deltas.
Our best wishes go to Mrs. Rideout, who helps
make Kappa Delta a home, and our congratula-
tions to the graduating sisters, who, with us,
will remember 1954, a year filled with happy
experiences and friendships.
ETA GAMMA CHAPTER bids farewell to
twelve faithful Phi Mu Seniors at the end of
a wonderful and memorable year. Rushing in the
fall and spring brought us thirty-three wonder-
ful girls, making a bigger and better link in
the Phi Mu bond. How can we ever forget the
pledge pranks when they put the baby lambs on
deck and scared us completely, the house dances
especially the Christmas 'formal with the angels,
mobile snowflakes, and colorful gowns, our many
exchange dinners with the fraternities, the fac-
ulty tea, Merp Weekend with its beach parties
at Ogunquit, the incorporated pledge and house
dances, Mrs. Ponds' excellent dinner for all of
us and our dates, and oh, yes, our purchasing of

Campus Chest Auction provided us with loads
of fun. The nice times that we had helping
Acacia on Mayoralty, and also our work on
Stunt Night, lnterhouse Plays and of course the
trouble getting a truck to lug snow for the sculp-
ture at the last minute.
And can we ever forget . . . Joanie's seven
league slippers on deck and her plea to pay
those bills . . . Queesie and her letter to Ron-
nie, no matter what . . . Barbie's telephone
marathons at all hours and now her excursions

own Geri, with her dream car, those "chic"

We can still hear Ab calling Mom Priest
"babe" and her note, "lf anyone is, would
someone please, Thanks Ab." The tall tales that
Terry tells in her sleep on deck, Clara being
ushered out the door for the lOOth time, the
finding of a clean barn for the two stray cats,
keep off the lawn or a 52.00 fine, if it grows,
the loss of a gallon of white paint when Anne
tipped the ladder over with Manie and "Moth"
laughing, the tactful buying of cokes from Phi
D. U. first and then Phi Alpha, and Polly's and
Terry's rendition of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis.
Several underclassmen are leaving us and we
we will keep a fond memory of them. Betty Crowe
leaves with her two crowns as aids to be mar-
ried, Jeanie's gone to Eaton Town with her
husband, Betty Jo is seen around singing "Cali-
fornia Here l Come" and saying "This is the
last time that l'm going to ask for the Christmas
card money!", Emily lSpoofl becomes Mrs. Jones
in June, and Margie leaves all the problems of
Secretary Pro-Tem to don a white nurse's cap.
We shall never forget the girls, Mrs. Pond and
her problems-lusl and all the fun-land workl
that made this such an unforgettable year.
On March 4, i954 we celebrated our l02nd
Birthday, as the second oldest sorority in the
nation. There are now over 60 active chapters
in colleges all over the East alone. But now the
time has come for these seventeen girls to leave
the spacious chapter house and our wonderful
Mom Priest. The exchange suppers, beach par-
ties, snow sculpture, and all the rest will soon be
just memories to be talked about at Homecom-
ing, but we hope to hear about them often in
the years to come.

HIEF BOSTON'S new one-platoon club successfully
opened their 1953 grid season with a decisive 27-13
win over a surprisingly strong Upsala eleven at Cowell
Stadium. Dimunitive Billy Pappas sparked the offensive and
defensive attacks to overcome a 7-0 first quarter deficit
with a brace of second period scores. Pappas not only
passed, kicked, and ran well, but intercepted three passes
including one for a TD! The victory, though, was a costly

captain "Jeep" Munsey on a play that fractured his collar

quarter after setting it up with two forward passes covering 42 yards, he
came within a yard of registering the second touchdown in the fourth period
when he returned the kick-off 94 yards to the Rams one yard line. He got
his team out of several danger spots by kicking ninety yards, and seventy
yards, from behind his goal. Sharing in the limelight was end Don Kelliher
whose two perfect placements provided the margin of victory.
The Blue and White continued their winning ways as they defeated the
University of Maine 2l-6 in the traditional Homecoming encounter. Once
again Billy Pappas helped the Wildcats come from behind for the third
Saturday in a row to pull out the verdict. Charlie Caramihalas, pint-sized
U. N. H. halfback, end Mal Kimball, played spectacular ball throughout the
afternoon. Of course, the educated right toe of Don Kelliher provided the
extra points. By virtue of their victory, New Hampshire received the annual
award-the Brice-Cowell musket.
Hopes of completing an undefeated season passed by the board as the
University of Delaware handed the Wildcats a decisive 48-O defeat. Al-
though the Wildcats didn't have much to cheer at, Charlie Sowerby provided
the loyal U. N. H. fans who travelled to Delaware with several thrills.
The trouble started when Delaware nabbed two quick touchdowns in the
first period, and picked up three more before the half was over. At half-
time the score was 34-0. But the victory wouldn't
have been as lopsided had the line been on its
usual par. Four of the touchdowns were gifts as
they came via interceptions and fumbles.
Determined to get back in the win column
after suffering a bitter defeat the week previous,
the Wildcats drilled hard for the St. Lawrence
game. A close battle was expected, and this is
iust what took place. But, even though out-
rushed, the Blue and White scored their most
impressive victory of the season as they dumped
the New York Staters 34-O. The big gun for the
townies was "legs" Charley Sowerby as he
accounted for three of the T. D's. The N. H.
defense was just the opposite of the previous
game, and really provided the difference in
The heart-breaker of the l953 campaign
found U. N. H. losing to Connecticut 6-O. Both
teams played to a standstill for the first half
with UConn being stopped several times from
scoring. But then the fourth Wildcat fumble set
up the only Connecticut touchdown in the third
period. The Cats offense then showed the brand
of ball they had previously been playing and
staged two long drives. One of them was good
for 89 yards before a fumble lost them the ball
on the ten yard line. The other cost them the
game as well as an outright Conference Title.
After losing a close game, U. N. H. bounced
back and won the Springfield game by one

point 7-6. Don Kelliher's educated-toe provided
the team's victory. Both teams threatened to
score in the first half, but the Cats fumbled with
only two yards to go, and Springfield had a
pass intercepted on the three. There was no scor-
ing the fourth period when the Massachusetts
Eleven scored on a pass. The try for the extra
point was missed but they lead 6-O. The Wild-
cats came right back as they put on a march
that ended with Jeep Munsey carrying over for
the T. D. The game probably would have ended
in a tie, as the first attempt for the point-after
was missed, but an off-side against Springfield
gave New Hampshire another try and the game.
The Massachusetts game was played on No-
vember 21 as it had been postponed from
November 7, due to the snow and slush. lt was
the first time a football game was postponed in
more than 20 years. But the Wildcats made up
for the delay, as they proceeded to down the
Massachusetts team. The contest was a nip-and-
tuck battle until the last period and the Cats
poured it on. Lead by the alertness of Billy
Pappas and the running of Dick Gleason and
captain Jeep Munsey, the varsity scored three
touchdowns to win the game. The score was only
13-12 up until the New Hampshire men came to
With the end of the Massachusetts game,
came the close of the 1953 season for the
Boston men. Even though the club was out-
rushed, outpassed and out-first-downed, they
had the ingredients that wins games-the desire
to win. The record of 6-2 was one of the best
in the last 50 years of football at the University.
They tied Rhode lsland for the Yankee Confer-
ence championship and now share the Bean Pot.
But what Chief Boston and the rest of the

IMITED by the smallest turnout in years and
further hampered by a long injury list, Coach
Bob Kerr's freshmen suffered a hard season.
Outclassed in their first game by an unusually
powerful Exeter team, reputedly the strongest in
years, the Frosh went down 38-O.

tens were quite able to hold their own against
Rhode Island, tying the Ramlets T3-13.
of the game. The Kittens barely missed a second
period touchdown when Gregorios intercepted
a Terrier pass, but the New Hampshire offensive
was held to the T6 yard line.
For the last game, the Kittens, again riddled
with iniuries, travelled to Hanover and tangled
elbows with the Dartmouth freshmen. This game
proved to be the most disastrous scorewise for
the freshmen as they were scalped 59-7. One

OACH Bob Kerr's varsity basketball team was regarded as an unknown
quality at the outset of the i953-54 hoop season. The Cats lacked
height, experience and reserve strength. Veterans Bill Pappas, John Parker
and Ted Trudel were the nucleus around which Kerr hoped to mold a for-
midable five. Off to a fast start with five straight victories the team levelled
off after Christmas vacation and showing signs of its inexperience and lack
of height managed to win only three of its remaining i3 games for an eight
won lO lost overall record.
Opening the season in Brunswick, Me., the Wildcats engaged Bowdoin
in a thriller, winning 92-90 in the final seconds. Two records were set in this
game as Bill Pappas, straight from the gridiron, scored 34 points to set a

new high for most points in a single game. The 92 point total constituted
the highest all time output for a U. N. H. team in one game.
Coming home to its native hardwood the Blue and White topped Bates
76 66 and quickly followed this up by defeating the same team 66-59
in Lewiston, Me. Lowell Textile posed no problem to the high flying
Wildcats as they romped to a 92-53 victory. The men were hot and they
showed it by extending their streak to five straight as they overcame
M I T. 66-59. At this point the Christmas vacation temporarily called
things to a halt. The Kerr men were sporting a perfect record of 5 wins
and no defeats and had a team average of 81.8 points per game. The
big scorer was diminutive Billy Pappas as he compiled a 23.4 average.
John Parker followed with a l3.6 average. Bobby Michel with a T0
points per game average was the only other player in the double tig-
ures Despite the 5-O record Coach Kerr voiced the opinion that his team
had not been truly tested and he would be well satisfied if the Wildcats
had a 50-50 won lost record at the season's end. Resuming play the
Cats travelled to Storrs, Conn., where they en-
countered a basketball giant in the Connecticut
Huskies and were promptly outclassed 104-48.
A superior Springfield team proved too much
for our fighting Cats as they downed us 95-62.
Unlike Conn. the Gymnasts could not check
Pappas as he hit for 31 points. John Parker
dropped in 13 points in a losing cause.

ln a home game against our neighbor Dart-
mouth, New Hampshire's lack of height caused
us the game as many potential baskets were
blocked. Playing heads-up ball the Wildcats
suppressed the Rhode Island Rams 77-71 for the
first Cat win in nearly a month. The smooth out-
side set shots of the University of Mass. Redmen
provided the difference as they set down our
visiting basketeers 69-62. ln Orono, Me., for
their first meeting of the season with the U. of
Maine Bears the Blue Wildcats suffered their
fifth setback as the fast breaking Bears edged
by 80-77. Overcoming a 19 point lead a strong

feated U'Conns rolled into Durham and once
again pinned back the ears of the Wildcats
lO7-68. Pappas was high man for U. N. H.
with 25 points. New Hampshire's hoopsters
avenged an earlier loss to Maine by taking the
Bears into camp 84-74 on the Durham court.
Pappas' 3l points and Michel's fine floor play
highlighted this victory. At Kingston the Rhody
Rams reversed a previous loss to U. N. H. by
handily taming the Cats 94-79. Sophomore Ken
Emery turned in a stellar board job as he
showed signs of becoming a top rebounder.
Returning home the Kerr men unsuccessfully
tangled with an improved U. of Mass. five losing
9l-82. Emery topped the scoring by hitting for
l7 points as well as doing a creditable iob
under the boards. ln their final home game of
the season the Wildcats displayed what was per-
haps the best brand of basketball as they came
from behind to upset the B. U. Terriers 77-68.
The final game saw U. N. H. travelling to Man-
chester to meet their archrival St. Anselms. Tak-
ing advantage of several defensive lapses by
the Wildcats, the Hawks were able to score in-
numerable lay-ups which paved the way to a
94-89 St. A's victory. Offensively U. N. H. had
six men in the double figure but their inability
to form a sound defense caused defeat.
The season was highlighted by the record
breaking performances of John Parker and All-
Conference Billy Pappas, Ken Emery's adept re-
bounding, Bobby Michel's fine play making and
Ted Trudel's steadying influence. Trudel, Parker,
and Bishop will be lost through graduation but
Coach Kerr will have the nucleus of a smooth
functioning team in returning veterans, Pappas,

should hold high the banner of the Blue and
IGHT hander John Bagonzi got the last year's
edition of the Wildcat baseballers off to an
auspicious start at Brackett Field as he pitched
his second no hitter of his college career as he
single-handedly downed Bates ll-O. He only
faced four batters per inning and not once had
more than one runner on base. He gave up only
five bases on balls. His previous no-hitter was
tossed against UConn last year as he pitched
a seven inning contest.

Returning to their home field, the Cats beat
Lowell Textile 4 to l as John Bagonzi and Dave
Colpitts combined to pitch a no-hitter. lt was
their third victory in four starts, as they had set-
down Springfield the week previous.
Bagonzi was lifted in favor of Colpitts in order
to rest John for the Rhode Island game, which
was later postponed. N. H. drew first blood in
the first inning as Leo Caucho reached on a
pass, and Jerry Kelley blasted a long triple to
send Leo home. Captain Keany went out to the
third baseman, but was followed by the second
three bagger of the inning by George Cullen.

Lowell's lone score came in the third on three
straight walks and a fiy ball. Their only other
attempt to score came in the fifth as three
straight men walked with only one out. But they
couldn't push the runner across.
Action in the fifth did not stop with Lowell's
three walks, because the Wildcats pushed the
two winning runs over in this inning. Kelley
walked, Cullen reached on a fielder's choice
and stole second. Pare reached on an error, and
Mike Cerillo singled in two runs. There was no
more scoring, but the Cats didn't need any
The Wildcats snapped a three game losing
streak as they topped Brandeis 7-5 on Brackett
field. Previous to this game they had lost to
Colby in thirteen innings 3-2, to Maine 4-3, and
Boston University by 6-4.
The big gun in the Brandeis game was Nick
Collela, as he tripled deep to right center with
the bases loaded in the sixth inning. This ball
was hit 380 feet. Dave Colpitts started and was
relieved by southpaw Denny Kilroy in the eighth.
Denny pitched two-thirds of an inning, and then
John Bagonzi came in to snuff the rally.
In the Colby game, it was a sacrifice that
gave the second best team in New England a
3-2 victory in the thirteenth inning.
AI Pare homered once in the Maine game
which the Cats lost 4-3, and almost homered
again in the later innings. The ball was called
out of bounds, and this dispute was only one of
Shaky support and fiuke hits were the main
cause of the downfall to B. U. John Bagonzi
suffered his first defeat of the season.
The club at this point had a record of five
wins and six defeats. Captain Huck Keany's
boys then lost two in their next three games,
losing 3-0 to Dartmouth, and splitting a double-
header to Connecticut 3-l and l-l l.
Bagonzi hurled three-hit ball for nine innings
against Dartmouth, but three runs came across
in the tenth to provide the margin of victory for
Dartmouth. Bagonzi tried to win his own game
as he tripled, but it was to no avail.
ln the opener of the double-header Bagonzi
had a two hit shut-out until the ninth when an
error occurred on an easy grounder to let a run
cross the plate. John did manage though to turn
it into a three-hitter. John thus only allowed
UConn four hits in three games in three years.
Dave Colpitts started the second game and
gave up five runs before he was relieved in the
ninth by Gallup and Zecha one-third of an
The Cats lost to Northeastern, but bounced
back and split a double-header with the Rhode
Island Rams. John Bagonzi pitched both games
losing the first 6-4, but came back and won the
nightcap on a no-hit, no-run game, 4-O.
The two outstanding men of the club were
pitcher Bagonzi and infielder Al Pare. Bagonzi
receive class A contracts from Boston, Cleveland,
Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Chicago Cubs, St. Louis
Browns, New York Giants, and the Philadelphia
Athletics. John had a 1.6 earned run average
per nine inning games.
Al Pare's hitting was the most potent offen-
sive weapon. He hit about .370, and had a .615
batting Inot sluggingl average in the Yankee
Conference competition. He hit several homers,
and was given a tryout at Fenway Park.
ln the early stages of the season, it was the
sophomores who kept the squad rolling. Mental
lapses and errors were the big drawbacks all
season long. As for individual performances, Bill
Collela did a remakably fine fielding iob at sec-
ond as has Leo Cauchon in the outer gardens.
Steve Mazur and Ed Kelly filled in well. Ike
Cullen hit as hard as last year but right at the
men in the field. Mike Cerillo did a good infield
iob. Some of his teammates insist that Charles
Marston had the best arm of all the conference
backstops. Denny Kilroy's back was a chronic
discomfort throughout the campaign so that his
efficiency was cut, as was Emilio Casellas' by a

The Cats opened their season at home against
the Bowdoin Bears, losing a close one 7-5. The
lead changed hands four times before the Bears
pulled it out with two late tallies. Capt. Willie
Johnston had two goals to his credit, while Ed
Githens, George Poirier, and Dave Dunham
each scored one.
MIT invaded Durham two days later. George
Poirier got the ball rolling as he blasted in a
quick goal in the opening minutes. Johnston
followed suit midway in the period in a pass
from Dunham. Penalties began catching up with
the Cats as the Techmen tied the score with
UNH shorthanded. Big Monty Childs ripped home
the tie-breaker at 8:25 of the middle stanza. The
string ran out midway in the final period as the
Martinmen received two more penalties simui-
taneously. The engineers capitalized on this
opportunity to capture the lead and the game
by a five to three score.
The varsity sextet next traveled to West Point,
N. Y., to tangle with the Military Academy ice-
men. Immediately after the face off, the Cadets
laid down a barrage of pucks on the UNH goal.
When the smoke cleared at the ten-minute mark
the soldiers led 6-O. From this point on, the Cats
managed to hold their own but the horses had
been stolen. The final score was 8-2, with John-
ston scoring the first UNH goal on a sensational
length of the rink solo dash. Johnny Styles was
the other cat lamplighter on passes from Buzz
Gardner and Al Carlson.
The rinkmen next journeyed into Vermont to
engage the high-flying Norwich non-coms. The
Green Mountain boys broke fast and took a
4-O lead after one period. In the middle canto
the UNHers found the range, with Childs, Gith-
ens, and Gardner denting the twines. ln the
final period the Norwich club pulled away again.
Although Carlson answered back with a goal
at 12:13 with assists by Githens and Pete Swan-
son, the final score was Norwich 9, UNH 4.
The Martin men three days later played host
to Tufts on the local rink in a hotly contested
fray. Johnston again started the scoring but the
Jumbo's came back to take the lead. Styles re-
tied the count. The ever-hustling Johnston set
the Cats ahead once more by stealing the puck
from a Tufts defenseman and blasting it by the
bewildered goalie. Three quick Tufts goals put
them out of reach although Rube Hall narrowed
the gap by converting a pass from Styles. Bob
Brophy, in the nets for the Cats, had 34 saves
and lost no face in bowing 6-4.
Bitter cold faced the Cats as they moved in
to Brunswick to play Bowdoin a return match.
Styles scored the first goal of the afternoon and
ten minutes later Buzz Gardner with an assist
from Johnston made it 2-O. Bowdoin tied the
score early in the second period, but Capt.
Johnston, a perpetual threat, pumped in two
goals within five minutes, the first unassisted and
the second on a pass from Hall. The Bears came
up with four tallies, while Styles added two
more for the Cats. With the temperature hover-
ing at the 14 below mark, a ten minute overtime
was played to no avail.
Lynn Arena was the site of the return game
with Tufts. Childs opened the scoring at 5:13
of the first on a long screened shot. Tufts had
the score tied by the end of the period. ln the
middle stanza, each team chalked up one point
on the scoreboard, Hall being credited with the
Cat goal on a pass from the hard-working Styles.
The Jumbo's retook the lead at the opening of
the last period, 3-2. The ever dangerous Styles
tied it up at 11:43 on a pass from Johnston. At
13:50 Johnston returned the compliment with
Styles and Githens getting assists to put UNH
into the lead again. Hall got an insurance tally
at 16:46 on a nice pass from Styles. The final
score was 5-3.
What proved to be the last game of the
season was played at Boston Arena with MIT
the opponent. The first period was scoreless,
thanks to the brilliant goaltending of Brophy.
He twice beat Tech forwards on clean break-
aways and had 16 saves for the stanza. The
Cat forwards got into the act in the second
period. Johnston scored unassisted on a back-
hander at 2:03 and Styles added one at 6:12
on a pass from Johnston. ln the third period
Johnston scored again with Hall assisting. Three
minutes later Childs soloed in from center ice
to score a pretty goal. The speedy Hall next
found the range on a pass from Johnston. Gard-
ner closed out the Cat scoring at 16:51 as he
drew the goalie out and planted the disc behind
him after taking a pass from Carlsen. Brophy
lost his shutout with 45 seconds left but he had
already done a great night's work. The final
score was 6-1.
The four remaining games on the schedule
had to be cancelled because of unseasonably
warm weather. The team had overcome many
obstacles and was playing its best hockey when
the season came to its premature close. The
loss of Dave Dunham and Pete Swanson at sea-
son had left the club with only Monty Childs
on defense. Ed Githens dropped back from
wing to team with Monty, and did an excellent
job. Many an opposing forward found himself
on the seat of his pants after Ed threw a check
his way. Childs was the iron man of the squad
sometimes playing the entire game without re-
lief. Up from the line of Johnny Styles, Capt.
Johnston and Rube Hall worked well together
and accounted for much of the scoring. Buzz
Gardner, Al Carlson and Rocket Poirier com-
bined to carry part of the load and do their
share of the point getting. While Pete Pritchard
and Hubie McDonough were not high on the
list of scorers, they nevertheless were important
cogs in the machine with their hustle and humor.
Cal Chandler got back from Korea for part of
the season and spelled Brophy in the nets from
time to time. Ranger Bies, Smoky lde and Crazy-
eight Sparks also filled in capably when called
on by Coach Martin.
Whether the record shows it or not the season
was one of accomplishment and with only Gard-
ner and Carlsen graduating, next year should
be even better.
HIS year's varsity rifle team is the best rifle
team ever to represent the University of New
Hampshire. At this writing the team is unde-
feated and promises to achieve greater heights
as the season passes on. Having lost only two
lettermen through graduation last year, the team
consists of seniors John Sowerby, Edwin Antz,
Thomas Pulsifer, and Ralph Hayes, iuniors Andy
Bushong and Frank Googins, and sophomores
James Burke, Al Laber, Thomas Lamb, Richard
Betz, and Paul Pinkham, Manager.
The Wildcat riflers, coached by Sergeant
Frick and supervised by Captain Harrington of
the Army ROTC, are a living example of the
spirit and sportsmanship which makes New
Hampshire the winners. E. Wesley Antz, a senior
and usual high man on the team, is continually
striving to attain and surpass all records pre-
viously established on the range. By his example,
and with the competitive spirit of each and every
other member, there is a very strong sense of
pride in the year's team.
The team has no one outstanding shooter, but
in this way tends to clarify the fact that they
work as a team.
The schedule of matches includes Bowdoin,
Massachusetts, Vermont, Dartmouth, Norwich,
Maine, W. P. l., and M. l. T. The climax of the
season will be the National Shoot Of? which
will take place in eleven regional matches
throughout the country in the latter half in March.
Only the top five shooters from the varsity will
represent U. N. H. at Boston for this exciting and
dramatic finish to the season.

HE i953-54 winter track season was the
natural letdown after the previous year's

the Wildcats lost to Tufts and MIT for an overall
record of one win, one tic and three losses.

last year when they won, 73 V3 to 5126. The
Bears took all but four of the first places as
Gordon Penney in the 300, Don Crandall in the
TOOO, and Warren Lyon in the mile, were the
Cats to finish first in the running events. Lyon
began running both the mile and two-mile for
the Cats in this meet, placing third behind Don
Vedeler in the two mile marathon.
Mal Purrington copped the other New Hamp-
shire first in the high iump. Two seconds by Ed
Roy in the shot and weight events, and second
and third by Bernard Campbell in the 300 and
600 yard runs helped keep the score close.
The Cats' chances were seriously hurt by
their lack of depth in the remaining meets.
Without UNH's strongpoint, the weight events,
being scheduled, the Cats had to settle for a
tie in the Massachusetts meet at Amherst, 38V2-
Senior Bob Potter had a field day, winning
the 35-yard high and low hurdles and placing
third in the high iump behind Jere Beckman and
Mal Purrington, who tied 5 feet lO inches.
Other firsts for New Hampshire included
Gordon Penney in the 440, and Bernard Camp-
bell was also second in the 440 yard run.
For the third meet in eight days the Cats
iourneyed to Medford to face Tufts, their strong-
est opponent in recent years, and defending
New England champions. The Jumbos romped,
7l-46, winning all but six of the first places.
The tiger, Warren Lyon, not only ran both the
mile and two mile events but won them both.
Don Vedeler, a promising sophomore, was sec-
ond in the two mile run. Ed Roy was another
double winner, placing first in the 35-pound
weight and the shot put. His toss in the latter
event of 43 feet, 2V2 inches was an inch and a
half better than second place Ronny Guittarr.
George Church and Don Crandall garnered
the other two first places for the Wildcats in the
pole vault and TOOO, respectively.
After a two week layoff the Cats fell before
a powerful MIT delegation, 37'A-7OM. The
Techmen copped all but two of the first places,
making up for a lack in depth with outstanding
Bernard Campbell continued his winning ways
with a first in the 50 yard dash. The other first
was taken by iunior Ed Roy in the 35-pound
weight, which he threw 45 feet, TOM inches.
Armand Desruisseaux was second in this event.
Bob Potter ended the season with seconds in
the 45 yard high hurdles and in the broad iump.
With a large turnout of students who had
never competed before and who had not
reached their peak, the prospects for the spring
season were improved.
When asked about the season, Paul Sweet,
the varsity and Freshman track coach, smiled
and pointed out that it's what happens when
you have an off-year facing the strongest com-
petition in New England.
The long, cold nights running around the
board track in the assorted foul weather of
Durham winters was not wasted, and should
result in noticeable improvement in the future.
Outstanding performances were those made
by Bob Potter in the Massachusetts meet, and
Warren Lyon's courageous endurance victories
in the Tufts meet. Warren is an example of what
can be done with a little perseverance. He had
never run before coming to Durham.
Graduating seniors on the team include John
Burpee, Bob Potter, Ronnie Guittarr, Warren
Lyon, and Mal Purrington.

HE varsity ski team under the leadership of
Captain Bob Hoos was able to ring up a
good record for the T954 season. The team
started off strongly, slumped toward the middle
of the season, and then came back to place
second in the Eastern Championships. Coach Ed
Blood was able to bring along several sopho-
mores who were a great help in the team's
showing during the year. The team will miss Bob
Hoos, who as one of the top combined Nordic
men in the East, was able during his three years
to contribute a great deal to the ski team. The
team will also miss Leighton "Lefty" Cree who
was a solid downhill and slalom man in his
The New England weather caused the can-
cellation for the usual Christmastime Lyndon-
ville meet. The Dartmouth Winter Carnival was
the opening meet on the Eastern Collegiate
circuit. The Dartmouth team was the strong fa-
vorite to win their third straight title because
of their strength in the Alpine events. St. Law-
rence was the surprise winner of the downhill
run on Woodstock's famous Suicide Six slope.
Dick Field, with a tie for 5th, was the first UNH
man to place. ln the slalom, Dartmouth came
back and scored well enough to win the com-
bined as well. The UNH strength in the Nordic
events helped pull them back into contention as
they took second, third, and fourth. The iump
was won by New Hampshire's Jon Riisnaes as
the Wildcats won this event also. This gave them
the cross-country and combined title by a wide
margin. The team placed second to Dartmouth,
losing by the small margin of 2.4 points.
The team was not able to do as well the
following week as they fell to third at the
Williams College Carnival. A recurrence of a
jumping iniury cost the team the services of
Bernard Brown. The next weekend UNH slipped
to fourth at the Middlebury Winter Carnival.
The iumping was the only event that the Cats
were able to win as they missed the wax in the
cross-country and dropped to 5th,
The Collegiate Ski Championships were held
at Lyndonville March T3-l4. The UNH men were
able to follow up on their early promise and
place second here.

HE Spring Varsity track team soundly won
and trounced Northeastern University at
Lewis Field in their opener, 100 314 to 34M4.
Bernie Campbell, Bob Bolton, and Ed Roy
won two events each to pace the varsity to this
victory. Campbell won the 100 yard dash and
the quarter mile run, while Bolton paced the
field in the 120 high hurdles and the 220 yard
low hurdles. Roy took the shot put and iavelin.
The Cats swept the high hurdles, 880 yard
run, shot put, and hammer events. Bolton with a
time of 15.5 seconds, was followed by Bob
Potter and Johnny Parker in the 120 yard highs.
Don Crandall, Al Carlsen, and Dick MacCormack
placed in the half mile in that order with Cran-
dall's time, 2:02.8 minutes. Ronny Guittarr and
Roy Lindberg followed Roy in the shot, and Roy
and Captain Dick Fitts were behind Lindberg
in the hammer events. Lindberg tossed the 16
pound weight 151 feet 2M inches.
John Parker picked up an easy first in the
high lump with a jump of five feet eight inches,
while Danny Hogan took the pole vault, clear-
ing the bar at twelve feet. Other firsts for New
Hampshire were made by Gorden Penney in
220, covering the distance in 23.2, Dick Fitts

The well-balanced squad out-scored North-
eastern, 51-21, in the running events while romp-
ing in the field over the Huskies 49 3A to 13'A.
The outstanding varsity track team then soldily
beat Boston University at Lewis Field House Sat-
urday, 92-43. Danny Hogan paced the Wild-
cats with a new meet pole vault record, clearing
the bar at twelve feet, nine inches.
Gordon Penney, Dick Fitts, and Bob Bolton
led New Hampshire with two victories apiece in
the meet which coach Paul Sweet had consid-
ered the toughest of the spring schedule.
New Hampshire swept four events-the ham-
mer, discus, 120 highs, and 220-while running
wild in the running events, 53-18 and taking the
field events, 39-24 in an uneven contest.
Danny Hogar., who began his track career as
a freshman, broke the meet record in the pole
vault by nine inches in his vault.
The Wildcats won nine firsts, while taking
twelve seconds, and eleven third places. The
Cats rolled over Maine at Orono, 8312 and
5l V3 for their third straight win as senior Dick
Fitts paced the attack with first in the discus and
hammer. Bernie Campbell won the quarter mile
run in 52 seconds for the Cats as Don Crandall
ran the half in two minutes fiat for another first.
Al Carlsen, leading point-getter in winter track
this year, took the mile in 4:29.l minutes while
senior Ev Webber took the other distance event,
the two mile run in lO:O5.l minutes. Danny
Hogan, spring track captain, continued his su-
perlative pole vaulting with a vault of twelve
feet nine inches for a second. The other New

New Hampshire's varsity track team then com-
pleted an undefeated season as they trimmed
MIT at the Lewis field track, 80-55. Coach Paul
Sweet's field men outscored the techmen, 54-9.
There were also Al Carlsen's run of the mile in
4:29.5, senior Warren Lyons' win in the two mile
run, and the victory in the 220 yard low hurdles
by Bob Bolton, another senior.
Johnny Parker, who also got twelve points for
the afternoon, tied with Antoine of MIT for a
meet record in the high iump, clearing the bar
at six feet two inches. Parker also was first in
the broad iump, and second in the l20 high
hurdles, while Ed Roy won the iavelin, was sec-
ond in the shot put and discus events, and third
in the hammer. Senior Dick Fitts maintained his
fine record in the discus as he hurled it l36
feet five inches, and Danny Hogan, another
senior copped the pole vault with a twelve-foot

HE Varsity Lacrosse team under the guidance
of new coach A. Barr "Whoops" Snively
compiled an excellent record of 6 wins and 2
losses. The Wildcats led by Co-captains Chuck
Bartlett and Dan Stone were able to put to-
gether their best record in several years as they
showed themselves to be on the way to a promi-
nent place in the New England Lacrosse picture.
The first game of the season was against
W. P. l. in which the team got off to a fast
start by downing their opponents by a lO-4
score. The team was a little ragged but showed
the results of early season work on fundamentals
and conditioning. Bill Johnson played very well
in his first varsity game and controlled the ball
from his center midfield position.
The Cats pulled out a close game as they
defeated Tufts in the last minute of play 5-4.
The winning goal was scored by Lefty Cree in
the last minute of play. "Fats" Houley played
well in the goal for U. N. H. but the team had
trouble putting together a real scoring punch.
The stickmen showed a lot of poise in this game
and played well under pressure.
M. I. T. furnished the opposition as the varsity

The Boston Lacrosse Club traveled to Durham
for a wild scoring game that saw the Wildcats

last most of the opposing midfield. Christy was
able to get most of the draws at center midfield
in the B. L. C. game against a former all Ameri-
can. Chuck Bartlett was one of the hardest work-
ing players on the squad and as Co-captain set
an example that kept the rest of the team on its
toes and playing hard. Jere Lundholm was clutch
player who came through in the tight places to
get a needed goal. Co-captain Dan Stone came

return of several veterans who did well this
year. With the help of a few promising sopho-
mores who have improved with a year of com-
petition, the team should have a good season
The team opened its season with Northeastern
at Brookline on October 3. lt was a warm day
and the team showed their lack of practice as
they dropped their meet by the score of 24 to
31. Shea of N. U. won with Carlsen of U. N. H.
in 3rd position followed by Lyons, 4th, Williams,
6th, Crandall, 7th, and Holbrook, 9th.
The Wildcats came out on top in their meet
with B. U. on October 9th although Johnny
Kelley of B. U. set a new course record in win-
ning. Captain Al Carlsen led the cats again as
he placed second. Warren Lyons ran a good
race to place 4th, with Crandall and Williams
tieing for 5th.
Maine was the next victim of the cross-coun-
try team as U. N. H. downed them 20 to 41 with
Captain Al Carlsen again leading the pack.
After the race Carlsen came down with an illness

squad was able to play only five of its scheduled
The Kittens traveled to Brewster Academy for
their first game which they won handily lO-O.
Rock Roland was the big scorer as he fired in
three goals and set up three others.
The next game found Chief's men christening
the new artificial ice rink at Phillips Exeter. The
Academy six, having been skating since early
December, showed the results of having artificial
ice by thumping the Frosh 8-O.
For their third outing, the yearling pucksters
played host to New Hampton. ln a nip-and-tuck
battle, which featured plenty of wide open
hockey, the U. N. H. six ended up on the short
end, 4-3. Outstanding play by the New Hampton
goalie, Ferdinando, prevented the Kittens from
winning by a comfortable margin. Bobby Cham-
berlain was the sparkplug of the frosh attack,
as he continually kept the pressure on the vis-
itors. The Freshmen came from behind late in
the third quarter, only to lose.
A vastly improved Brewster squad next in-
vaded Durham to face the "probation depleted"
Boston men. ln a thriller, the U. N. H. men came
out on top 3-2. The deciding goal was scored
by Ernie Twombley, after Ken Johnson had tied
it up. Fran Muri, who was in the nets for the
Kittens, played a brilliant game.
The final game of the season that the club
was able to play took place at Tilton Prep. ln
another see-saw game the first year men
dropped a heartbreaker 3-2. Kaupin and Krav-
chuk played fine games on the U. N. H. defense.
Kravchuk also got a goal.

HE Freshman Spring track team this year had
a record of two wins and three losses. The
first meet was held here in Durham with the
Northeastern Freshmen and under the able lead-
ership of their captain, David Hilton, the squad
started oFf the season with a 74-52 victory. The
second meet was with the B. U. Freshmen and
the opponents captured ll out of l4 first places
and that decided the meet. Although outstand-
ing for the Frosh were Marcel Couture in the
dashes, John Fish in the 440, and Armand
Desruisseaux in the weights. The third meet was
the second and final victory for the Frosh when,
on a cold and rainy day, they splashed their
way to a 66 V2-50V2 victory over Exeter Acad-
emy. The main point winners were Captain
David Hilton and Jere Beckman in the hurdles,
pole vault, and high iump. ln the last two meets
the Frosh were defeated by MIT Frosh 71-55,
and by Dartmouth Frosh 76-50. Even though the
squad lost these two meets Larry Baldi, Pete
Hood, and John Dodge did fine work in the
half-mile, mile, and weights respectively. The
main reason for the defeats of the season was
the lack of depth. Most of the men had to dou-
ble and triple in events and two of the men
had to enter four events because there were not
enough men in the squad. lt seems too bad
that out of this University we don't have at least
thirty-five men on the Freshman Track team.
Certainly a great deal of credit is due the
small number of men who practiced, competed,
and made such a good showing this season in
Freshman Spring Track.
Left to right, first row-Dick Calef, Thomas Ewing, Phil Decel, Jack Neville, Joe Neville, Dave Baldwin,
Ralph Wadleigh, Jack Hoey. Second row-Hubie McDonough, Stan Travis, Dick Belleifulle, Armand Cote,

Jim Kearnan, Ted Pryabyla, Second Coach Pepper Martin.
HE Freshmen Lacrosse team, handicapped as
usual by a lack of men who had played
the game, was able to wrack up a very credit-
able record of 4 wins and 3 losses. Coach Pep-
per Martin was able to teach the fundamentals
of the game to a small but hardworking squad
who will be a real asset to the varsity in the
years to come.
The first game was with a rugged Lowell
Textile team on a very wet day here in Durham.
Jim Sullivan was able to sneak through the mud
and score three goals from his midfield position
which was enough to give the game to the
Kittens by a three to two score. Jim Murray was
outstanding in the goal for the Kittens.
Governor Dummer traveled to Durham for
the next game and Frosh were able to put
together more of a scoring punch and took this
one by a thin margin of 6 to 5. U. N. H. goals
were scored by Baldwin, Hooey, and Wadliegh.
The M. l. T. freshmen were the victims of a
rash scoring as the team began to gain con-
fidence and experience. The final score was 7
to 2 with Bob Chapman, Dave Baldwin, Hubie
McDonough, and Ralph Wadliegh all getting
into the scoring column.
ln the fourth game of the season the Fresh-
men were completely outclassed as they lost to
an outstanding Exeter Academy Team by a score
of l2 to l. Bob Chapman was the only player
to break into the scoring for the freshmen. Jim
Murray was able to keep the score down by
playing an outstanding game in the nets.
The Kittens lost their next two games, to Tufts
Frosh by 4 to 3 and were again outclassed by
a prep school as they lost to Andover 14 to 2.
The Freshmen were able to break back into the
win column to finish the season as they whipped
an inexperienced N. E. C. team 'IO to 2.
Co-captain Jim Murray played very well in
the nets all year and was able to save several
games by his outstanding saves. Phil Decell,
Don Swain, Don Sibson, and Pete Baute pro-
gressed very rapidly at defense and showed
that they should be of help to the varsity in
the future. Co-captain Dave Baldwin was one
of the team's most consistent scorers through-
out the season.
HE i953-'54 U. N. H. Frosh Basketball team
turned in one of the best seasons a N. H.
Freshman team has ever had, as they ended up
with a 7-3 record.
Coach Andy Mooradian built his team around
Dick Lamberts, Jack Ferguson, and George Tan-
The Kittens opened their season at Bates and
came home with a 64-62 victory. Two clutch
foul shots by Dick Lamberts after 54 seconds in
a sudden death overtime period gave the
U.N. H. freshmen the game. Leading at the half,
30-22, U. N. H. continued to dominate play
until the last period, when Bates tied the game
at 58-all. But the Frosh, led by Big Jack Fergu-
son, Lamberts, Dave Gowan, and Al Lussier,
were too much for the Lewiston Club.
The Mooradian five then lost a close 53-57
decision to the Harvard Frosh, but won their
third game of the season beating Phillips Exeter.
After winning over Tilton by nine points, the
squad defeated the Northeastern Pups, 81-63.
Ferguson led the Kittens with i8 points, followed
by Lamberts with l6.
The club continued its winning ways as they
edged out Phillips Exeter at Exeter, 73-70. Dick
Lamberts set a new scoring record as he dumped
in 35 points to lead the attack.
The Frosh then traveled to Manchester to play
a powerful St. Anselm's team. After a slow start,
the Kittens defeated the Hilltoppers by six points.
The game at Dartmouth proved to be the
Freshmen's worst defeat, but even then, this
was by only l5 points.
After losing to Dartmouth the squad came
back and defeated Portland Jr. College. With
hopes high after the Portland game, the Kittens
played host to Phillips Andover for their last
scheduled game. lt was the first meeting of the
two clubs and the U. N. H. five had hopes of
closing the season with a win. But, Phillips ap-
plied the pressure, and defeated the frosh by a
slim six points. Even though they lost the last
game, it still was one of the best seasons that a
frosh team has ever recorded.
The squad was composed of Goyette, Hamil-
ton, Vlanzas, Papazian, Fishman, Johnson,
Hearney, Armstrong, Lussier, Lamberts, Tanzey,
and Ferguson. William Bishop was the team
ACED by the hitting of Nick Raftopoulos and

Baseball Team went through an undefeated sea-
son with a 6-O record.
Coached by Andy Mooradian, the Frosh
opened up the season with a close 2-O victory
over Phillips Andover Academy at Andover,
Massachusetts. Joe Kazura struck-out eight men,
while his teammate, Nick Raftopoulos, knocked
in both runs with two timely singles.
With one victor under their belts, the boys
traveled to Phillips Exeter Academy. The hitting
power was proving itself, but the pitching wasn't,
until Kazura came in to pitch in the 4th, With
Joe on the mound, and the hitting of Raftopou-
los, Ross, and McLaughlin producing R. B. l.'s,
the N. H. men took command and pulled out
a l5-9 victory.
Two victories over a couple of good teams
did not relax the Mooradian men as the Dart-
mouth Frosh would be the real test. Andy started
Joe Kazura on the mound. His decision paid-off,
as Joe not only struck-out nine "little Indians,"
but also knocked in three R. B. l.'s on two hits,
as he single-handedly defeated the Dartmouth
Once again the team tangled with Exeter
Academy, and Rowles started on the mound, as
Joe was to be given a rest. But Kazura had
to relieve Rowles in the eighth inning. He man-
aged to hold the Exeter men, while his own
men pushed over a few runs to win 6-5. lt was
Joe's fourth win. McLaughlin got two for two,
while Raftopoulos doubled and brought home
two R. B. l.'s.
The team put their 4-O record on the line as
they traveled to Henniker, N. H., to play New
England College's Varsity. Second baseman,
Don Dickson, playing his first game of the year,
was the big gun as he got three for three while
driving in three runs. Kazura again went the
distance on the mound, as he racked-up his
second shut-out by the score of 6-O.
All that stood in their way now was the game
with the State Prison. Since Kazura was the only
pitcher credited with victories, coach Mooradian
started Osgood on the mound. But Joe had to
go in to stop a last inning rally, and save the
9'-3 victory for Osgood. Raftopoulos and Mc-
Laughlin hit home-runs, and of course, there
were plenty of volunteers willing to retrieve the
balls. Raftopoulos, Dickson, McLaughlin, and
Ross hit over 300.

ITH a decided lack of depth, the '54 ver-
sion of the Wildkitten track squad traveled
to Lewiston in January to tackle the Bates Frosh.
By sweeping the final event Bates picked up a
win over the Blue and White, 66V2 to 4OV2.
Outstanding for UNH were Jason Chick with l9
points in four events, Dick Spaulding with 8
points on a first and a second in the weights,
Guy Perry in the 35-pound weight, and Joe
Lewis in the pole vault.
Facing a powerful Exeter Academy squad in
the second meet, the Blue and White youngsters
were overwhelmed by a 62 to i9 score. A
bright spot for the Kittens was Jason Chick's

second, and two thirds. Joe Lewis won his pole

UNH, mainly on firsts in the high hurdles and
the 600 yard run. Frank Capone scored a win
in the low hurdles and a third in the highs, while
Joe Lewis notched another pole vault triumph.
Still trying for their first win, the Blue and
White youngsters nearly upset MIT at Cam-
bridge only to be nipped 52-47. With wins in
the high hurdles, the 600, the broad iump, and
a tie for first in the high iump, Capt. Jason
Chick scored I9 points while versatile Dick
Spaulding won blue ribbons in the shot and the
50 yard dash. Frank Capone and Joe Lewis also
excelled. ln spite of the losses much improvement
was evident under Coach Paul Sweet's tutelage,
and next year's varsity is expected to be bol-
stered by a strong but undermanned Freshman

AST year's softball proved to be one of the surprises, as two of the four league
championships were not decided until the day before the tournament.
Phi Mu Delta came back after losing their first game of the season to A. T. O.,
to defeat the same team in a play-off game.
T. K. E. was riding high with only two games to play, but then the bottom fell
in as they lost those two games and the league play-offs. So, in the final play-off
game Lambda Chi and A. G. R. were battling it out, with Lambda Chi winning by
six runs going into the last inning. Then another surprise found A. G. R. coming up
with seven runs to put them into the Championship Games.
The first game of the tournament found Theta Kappa Phi an easy victor over
A. G. R. by the score of 10-l. The Theta Kap men lead from the first inning, and
A. G. R. never threatened.
Phi Mu Delta and Kappa Sigma met in the second game. Kappa Sigma, the
tournament favorites, took an early first inning
3-0 lead in the first half of the first inning.
Phi Mu Delta threatened every inning to tie it
up but iust couldn't manage to bring the runners
around to score after they had reached scoring
position. The result was a 7-4 victory for Kappa
Sigma. Billy Pappas hit a home run for the
With the opening round out of the way, Phi
Mu Delta and A. G. R. agreed to take a tie for
third place, and thus no consolation game was
ln the Championship Game, Kappa Sig took
a second inning lead over Theta Kap which they
never relinquished. The victory went to Kappa
Sig by the score of lO-4. Responsible for Kappa
Sigma's Championship were pitchers Gregory
SF. Angelo, Vern Duval. Billy Pappas aided with
his power at bat.
Although Kappa Sigma won the football and
softball championships, they lost the All-Point
Trophy to Theta Kap. Theta Kap collected 31
points throughout the various sports' seasons,
while Kappa Sigma scored 27.
ln the football season this year, Kappa Sigma
edged-out Phi Mu Delta for the League D
Championship, A. T. O. won over A. G. R. for
the League A crown, while Theta Chi beat
Lambda Chi in a play-off game at the end of
the regular season to win League C. ln League
B, Theta Kap won out in an after season match,
over two other opponents, S. A. E. and P. K. A.
The tournament started out as expected, as
Kappa Sig shut out A. T. O. I2-O, while Theta
Chi beat Theta Kappa Phi l2-6. Kappa Sigma
played head-up ball in the championship game
to walk off with the honors as they whitewashed
Theta Chi l3-O.
Presentation ot trophy to Theta Kappa Phi.
The basketball season was one of the best
ever seen at the U. N. H. Field House. Kappa
Sigma won their way to the tournament as they
edged out Theta Kappa Phi in the regular sea-
son. S. A. E. entered the championship games
by topping Phi Mu Delta. A. T. O. had no trouble
from any other opponents and consequently
found themselves in the tournament. Meanwhile
Gibbs Hall won a very close game over Lambda
Chi by one point to enter the tourney. With only
sixteen seconds to play in the game, and
Lambda Chi winning by one point, one of the
Lambda Chi had two foul shots coming up. He
missed both of them and one of the Gibbs
players was fouled, giving the dorm men a
chance to score two points and win the game.
They took advantage of the situation and
dropped in two points to take the lead and the
With these four powerful teams in the Tourna-
ment, there was plenty of competition. In the
first round Kappa Sigma defeated Gibbs 54-5l,
after the Gibbs men had taken a lO point lead.
ln the second game of the semi-finals S. A. E.
lost to a tall, powerful A. T. O. team by the
score of 54-46. A. T. O.'s height proved too
much for the S. A. E. men as Brooks and Sow-
erby combined to score 37 points for the Omega
ln the consolation game S. A. E. beat a
determined Gibbs team 57-46, to win the third
place position. The championship game between
Kappa Sigma and A. T. O. proved to be two
games in one. A. T. O. took an early lead I2-
ll, but Kappa Sigma tied it up at 25 all at the
end of the half. The start of the third period
showed two totally different teams as far as per-
formance is concerned. Kappa Sigma, who had
been fouling constantly, fouled but only one
man in the third period. A. T. O. only managed
to score four points on two field goals in the
third period. A. T. O., minus Charlie Sowerby
and Ed Brooks who were fouled out in the third
period, only scored eight points and all were
foul shorts. The result was a 58-37 victory and
championship for Kappa Sigma.
Picked on the All-Tournament Team were:
Steve Mazur-S. A. E., captain
Charles Sowerby-A. T. O.
Wally MacRae-A. T. O.
Neil Serpico-Kappa Sigma

T is the aim of the Department of Physical
Education to provide as complete and varied
a program as possible for each individual woman
student on campus. ln order to do this, every
effort is made to oFFer many difterent types of
activities to allow tor the social and recreational
development of the individual as well as her
Although the requirement for graduation is
the completion of three years of Physical Edu-
cation, the student has enough opportunity to
choose the types of activities in which she would
like to participate so that the program is con-
sidered largely elective. There are twenty-two
activities offered which range from team sports
and individual sports to modern dance, rem-
edials, and community recreation.
Since it is an aim of the Department to try
to fulfill the needs of the individual student while
she is on campus and to equip her with valuable
carry-over knowledge and skill, every effort is
made through evaluation sheets, surveys, and
questionnaires to determine these needs and to
evaluate the program.
ln addition to the Physical Education classes,
the Women's Physical Education Department also
sponsors an Intramural Program under the stu-
dent leadership of the Women's Recreation As-
sociation. This Association organizes such club
activities as Rifle Club, Ski Club, Durham Reelers,
and Dance Club which offer further opportunity
for students to develop their special interests.
WRA also sponsors interclass, interhouse, co-
recreational, and interscholastic competition.
The inter scholastic program includes competition
in field hockey, basketball, badminton, skiing,
riflery and softball with such schools as West-
brook Jr. College, Colby Jr. College, Jackson
Miss Marion Beckwith is the Director of the
Department and her staff includes Mrs. Caroline
Wooster, Evelyn Browne, Carol Gordon, Barbara
Newman, Joan Blanchard, Mrs. Marilyn Black,
Sylvia Masters and Elizabeth MacKinnon.

HE Women's Recreation Association has been
set up to fulfill the recreational needs and
desires of as many of the women students as
possible. Upon admittance to the University,
every woman student is automatically a member
of this organization. The organization is gov-
erned by the Executive Board and assisted by
other students who act as house sports chair-
men, class managers, sports leaders and club
lt is the aim of the Association to challenge
the highly skilled person without neglecting ac-
tivities designed to appeal to those students who
do not have outstanding ability but who do
desire to participate in leisure time sports. The
program consists of lnterhouse, lnterclass and
Co-recreational activities. Competition in lnter-
house is based on tournaments among the wom-
en's houses on campus, and includes such sports
as touch football, basketball, badminton, volley-
ball, table tennis, archery and softball. A trophy
is awarded to the house winning the greatest
number of points throughout the year.
Under the division of lnterclass, every girl is
eligible to try out for her class team in hockey,
basketball, tennis and softball. Once the tourna-
ments are completed, the outstanding players
from each class team are chosen for the All-
Star team to represent the University in two or
three games in competition with other colleges.
The activities under the co-recreational pro-
gram are tennis, volleyball, and softball. Mixed
teams of fellows and girls vie for the plaque
which is given to the winning team in each of
The W. R. A. sponsors six clubs for those stu-
dents who are particularly interested in certain
phases of the program. The clubs by name are
the Dance Club, Rifle Club, Whips, Ski Club,
Durham Reelers, and Camp Counselor's Club.
The Association also sponsors such social events
as a W. R. A. dance early in the fall, a ski
movie, a Dance Concert, a Horse Show, and a
Square Dance Festival. Each of these are super-
vised by the respective clubs.

HE lnterhouse Board has charge of adminis-
tering the lnterhouse program. The purpose
of lnterhouse sports is to give every girl on cam-
pus, regardless of her ability, an opportunity to
participate in a variety of activities. These ac-
tivities consist of three team sports-touch foot-
ball, basketball and volleyball, and three indi-
vidual sports-badminton, table tennis and
Each spring every women's housing unit nomi-
nates three people for the position of House
Sportschairman for their respective houses, These
three names are then turned into the WRA board
who appoints one of the three girls for the posi-
tion. This gives the individual houses the oppor-
tunity to nominate girls of their choice, and it
gives WRA an opportunity to select the one they
consider most qualified for the position. The
sportschairman has the responsibility of organ-
izing and forming teams within her house, and
of creating additional interest and enthusiasm
for the lnterhouse activities.
The lnterhouse competition is based upon tour-
naments within the respective houses and among
the various dorms and sororities. A point system
is used in order to determine the winning house.
For each sport, every house receives a certain
number of points for entering a team into a
campus tournament. The teams winning these
tournaments are given additional points. ln re-
gard to the individual sports, only a specified
number of points are given for the percentage
of members in the house who participate in the
sport. At the close of the year these points are
totaled and the winning house is recognized by
being presented the lnterhouse Sports Awaid.

HE Women's Field Hockey season started the
second week of school with girls from each
class trying out for their respective class teams.
Class managers were Gail McAllister, freshman,
Adele Bennett, sophomore, Kay Ford, iunior, and
Nancy Anderson, senior. Mariorie Richardson
was hockey leader.
After a series of practice games, the sched-
uled class games started. The senior team was
the winner of the tournament.
Following the games, the class managers,
sports leader and faculty coaches selected an
All-Star team to represent the University in out-
side competition. This year's team included

The All-Star team played three games during
the T953 season. The first game was on No-
vember 5, against Westbrook, U. N. H. winning
by a score of 4-l. This game was played at
U. N. H. On Thursday, November 12, the All-
Star team traveled to Colby Jr. College and was
defeated by a score of 6-5. The last game was
played on November 18, with Jackson College
defeating U. N. H. by a score of 3-l.
Hockey has been popular at U. N. H. due to
the outstanding leadership of Miss Barbara New-
man and Miss Carol Gordon.
HIS year the Women's Ski Club continued
under the sponsorship of the Women's Rec-
reation Association. In spite of the lack of snow,
the club managed to have a successful year.
The Ski Club is designed to promote interest
and participation in order to take advantage
of all the recreational possibilities available in
skiing. Membership is open to all students who
are interested, regardless of their skill. Ski in-
struction and safety precautions are taught to
both old and new skiers. The USEASA proficiency
tests are administered to those desiring them.
This year's program included speakers, mov-
ies, and ski trips to Gilford and Franconia.
Among the speakers, Mr. Roger Peabody, di-
rector of the Cannon Mt. Ski Area, gave an
interesting talk about that area and showed
movies including shots of our ski meet held there
last year. At another meeting, Mr. Al Hood
showed slides of skiing and mountain climbing
An outgrowth of the Ski Club is the Women's
Ski Team. This year they competed at the Skid-
more, Middlebury, and University of Vermont

chance to develop their skills and to participate
in competitive matches.
Rifle season lasts from November to March
and during this time sixteen matches were held.
The maiority of the matches were postal matches,
with three shoulder to shoulder matches being
fired, one with the Men's Freshman Team, one
with the Dover High School Team and one with
the University of Rhode Island. The team made
a trip to the latter place.
The team uses Winchester Rifles supplied by
the Women's Physical Education Department,
and they shoot in two positions, sitting and
prone. Postal matches are held with colleges
from all over the country, from the University
of California to Universities in New England, and
we even have a match with the University of

HE Women's tennis team originates from the
lnterclass tennis tournament which is played
off in the fall. Each class tournament is played
off separately to determine a class winner. The
winners then play to determine a campus cham-
pion. Due to poor weather last fall, the final
tournament has been postponed until spring.
From the winners and runners-up, an All-
Star team is chosen by the class managers,
sports leader and faculty coach.
This year's leader was Nancy Evans, assisted
by the class managers who are as follows: Bar-
bara Dudley, freshman, Ann LaFleur, sophomore,
Ann Meader, iunior, and Ann Nelson, senior. This
year's faculty coach is Miss McKinnon of the
Women's Physical Education Department.
This year the All-Star team will play two
matches: Colby Jr. May 13th at New London
and Jackson May 20th at Durham.
The following girls have been chosen for the
All-Star tennis team this year: Marilyn Chase,
Joyce Hiller, Ann Nelson, Lynn Dickinson, Nancy

HE 1954 basketball season was again suc-
cessful, with the freshman class leading in
the number of participants.
The basketball leader this year was Marilyn
Chase, assisted by Marilyn Stender. The class
managers for the season were as follows: fresh-
man, Caroline Sullivan, sophomore, Ellen O'Con-
nor, iunior, Ruth Blackeney, and for the seniors,
Marilyn Withers. Coaching of the teams was
divided by Miss Elizabeth McKinnon and Miss
Evelyn Browne, instructors in the Women's Phys-
ical Education Department.
After a series of three practice games for
each class, the scheduled class games started.
At the end of the schedule the freshmen, sopho-
mores, and seniors were all tied. Time being

At the time of this writing, the All-Star team
has played Westbrook Jr. losing 57 to 60, and
Colby Jr. losing to the tune of 37-41. The last
game will be played at Jackson College. Al-
though the record thus far is not too impressive,
the season certainly has been a success as far
as loyalty, team spirit and cooperation, to say
nothing of the fun and good times.
HE dance department is composed of Dance
Club, Dance Workshop, and dance com-
position classes. These three sub-departments
worked together in presenting a lecture-dance-
demonstration in March, and the annual Spring
Concert in May, of which much of the choreog-
raphy was done by the students.
This year, Dance Club celebrated its tenth
anniversary under the direction of their new
advisor, Miss Sylvia Masters. Participation in the
Christmas Concert was one of the regular ac-
tivities. This year, however, the Men's Glee Club
accompanied the dance choreographed by Miss
Masters. A new and profitable experience for
the group was provided by attendance at a
Dance Symposium at Bradford Junior College in
Haverhill, Massachusetts. Here they joined with
several other college groups in a master class
given by June Dunbar, an assistant of Jose Limon
of New York.
Dance Workshop, under the direction of Miss
Joan Blanchard, is open to all students. lt aims
at the appreciation of and building of tech-
niques for dance. The change in Dance Club's
constitution this year makes Workshop an ap-
prentice group for Club, rather than a pre-
