I Those cobblestones were covered in a blanket of white for a few weeks and the students walked awkwardly and slow in order not to slip. One could see plenty of color on campus by noticing the gay wool scarves and gloves. Girls, those raccoon collars came in handy, didn ' t they? The snack bar offered everything from hot chocolate to potato chips and the students ' hunger and thirst was quenched on the spot. Student helpers were always on han d, too. 1:4: Having a new rotunda this year gave the students a great place to relax over a coke between classes, and served as a meeting place for groups at night. The new chairs were comfortable for the ' ' long-play " bridge participants, and the snack bar offered a retreat for the hungry loafer. C5] Give a cheer for old RPI . . . we ' re the best of all the rest! Cheerleaders were eager to urge the crowd into excitement at all the basketball games. They also helped during the opening festivities of Scholarship Week. Sock feet was the popular adornment at most RPI hops. It was a comfortable way to enjoy dancing in the gym, and the idea went over tremendously. I 7 hey ■ the Senior Man,tH ' ' " glimpse- 0 ' ' generation and ,1 Each day one can observe the students of RPI busily hurrying around the campus. They pause to smile and say a friendly hello, then scurry on to their respective classes. [8: ' Ro Ac « u -B m a professional school, the students are preparing themselves for a particular place in life. They attend classes which are designed especially to place them, well-prepared, in a highly technical atmosphere that dominates today ' s world. Also, they learn to live with others and experience problems and happy moments that help them adjust to life on their own. [9] FACULTY THE PROVOST DR. GEORGE J. OLIVER Dr. George J.

His appointment was confirmed by the Board of Visitors of the College of William and Mary on January 9 of this year.

Because of this, they lacked the necessary experience to compete on the same level with many of the stronger teams in the " Little Eight. " The season ended with the record reading eight v.ins and fifteen losses. With a few breaks this record might have been reversed. Captain Gene Bourne, one of the few veterans on the squad, was the consistent leader of the team. Doug Loughridge and Monk Vaughan also contributed outstanding play throughout the season. Two players will be lost to graduation, Tom Davies and Bill Parker, an outstanding rebounder throughout four years of play. The remainder of the team will return with a year ' s experience to give Coach Allen a much stronger entry in next year ' s " Little Eight " race. 1 u f • V " r r Joan Harris, Barbara Wilkie, Gayle Smith, Sue Plemmons, Carolyn Williams, Margaret Boxley, Carolyn Hodges, Katherine Bulger, Myrtle Crowe, Suzanne LeGore, Joan Moody The Dcvik ' ttes, uiid(M- the cdinnuMidablc coaching of Coach Nancy Alexander, finislied their i " ourU en-ganie schedule with a nine-won five-lost record, i)roducing R.P.I.

Up to this point in the season, the Green Devils had won four and lost five, the last three victories being in a row. Highlight of the young season was a victory over previously unbeaten Randolph-Macon, followed a week later with a second victory over the same team. Both wins were earned by Hunter Talbott, mainstay of the R.P.I, pitching corps. Joe MacNamee, captain of the team, leads the team in the field and keeps everyone hustling. Marv Russell, playing in his first year, is leading the team at bat. If play can continue as it has, a winning year is in sight.

Now and then, getting a bit of noise was rather hectic, but most of the time their cheers echoed throughout the building. The cheerleaders would not be complete without their mascot, the Green Devil, who helped lead cheering at every game.

That ' s what this year ' s tennis team has. The girls play a rough schedule, but play every game animatedly. They defeated Bridgcwater College, v.inning every match, to hand them their worse defeat of the year. They are hope- ful of a successful spring season.

They ' re dressed for various events . . . shopping, dating, classes . . . and just looking pretty! OFFICERS Nancy Showferty, Secretary Ann Blondin, Vice-President Marcia Barlow, Freshman Representative Margaret Angelo, Treasurer Prexy Ann Kane is seated. [68: H-1 Q o The largest dormitory on campus nat- urally means more girls, more smiles, more fun, more tears, and more friends. The personality of each girl who lives here blends to form a new personality for Founders Hall every year. It has all the characteristics of one big happy family, well known for its unusual abun dance of warmth and friendliness. The parties, television in the TV room, bridge in the card rooms, snowball battles in the front of the dorm, sunbathing on the roof, studying, laughing, crying — these ex- periences will long be remembered by the girls who have lived here. OFFICERS Margaret Jones, President Mary Lou Ferrell, Vice President Beth Massey, Secretary Peggy Howison, Treasurer [69 ] Theresa Sheppard, Freshman Representative Passing through the curtains which sep- arate the relative tranquility of the parlor from the confusion in the maze of halls which constitute Lee House is reminiscent of Alice ' s venture through the looking-glass. Sounds ranging from stereophonic record- ing the " Beethoven ' s Fifth " to the beat of bongos; from the strident voice of a TV announcer to the familiar cry of " Anyone for bridge? " ; these and many others mingle with the everyday noises that accompany dormitory life. Living in such a chaotic en- vironment requires a high degree of adapt- ability, and Lee House boasts forty-one of the most adaptable girls on the campus. OFFICERS Vickie Lundberg, Secretary Elizabeth Cowan, Vice-President Peggy Jessup, Treasurer Mrs. Mary Carter, Hostess Lee Hicks, President C 7° 3 Ivl Built in 1855, Ritter-Hickok House is one of the historic buildings of Richmond, and a fine example of gracious living of the Victorian Period. The dormitory life of the girls is a great part of their education. At R.P.I, they have an oppor- tunity to meet people from all walks of life. When one compares this house with the adjoining mod- ern Fine Arts Building, one sees that the span of years is imme- diately apparent. None-the-less, in the years the girls spend in the dormitory a feeling of being at home both in the 19th and 20th centuries develops com- fortably. OFFICERS Joan Hudgins, President Joanne Price, Vice President Frances Graham, Secretary Walta Chandler, Treasurer Jill McEntee, Freshman Representative MEREDITH HOUSE r Meredith House, the third largest dorm on campus, is known for its hospitality to all outsiders and for the friendliness among all its girls. Interests of the girls cover a wide range, but despite this they get along extremely well together. Meredith life is highlighted each year with its annual Christmas skit and a spring social. Meredith ' s foundations are cemented by the willingness of her students to co- operate and pitch in their services without being asked. OFFICERS Sharon Stark, President Marian Kinzie, Vice President Betty Pilcher, Secretary Katherine Bulger, Treasurer Barbara Jean Massengill, Freshman Representative [70 Guess what? It ' s time for sunglasses again. Pack up, mates, we ' ve got a week-end pass. We have rather crowded conditions in our dormitory.

What ' s wrong with having a picnic in the snow? 1:73] It ' s Scherer Hall this year— but the ole ' Berkley spirit is still upper- most with the seventy-five girls living here. Our girls, represented in almost every social and scholastic acti vity on campus, will have many won- derful memories to come to mind with a quick backward glance at the year and all that it has held for them. The friendship, hours spent toward higher learning, and the good times will always remain in the hearts of every young lady at Scherer Hall. To our housemother and gradu- ating seniors — the best of every- thing ... It ' s been a great year! OFFICERS Dot Forrester, President Ann Boykin, Vice President Pattie Webb, Secretary Jan Newell, Treasurer Alice King, Freshman Representative SCHERER HALL [74: " I : M ti;- OLD GANG OF A warm, congenial atmosphere characterizes the 828 Park Avenue Dormitory.

Representative 179:1 The Day Students ' League was reorganized in November, 1959. At the February reg- istration of R.P.I, there was a membership drive of the D.S.L. The purpose of the club is to have a voice in Student Government as a body and also be more united with the Dorm students and the administration. • - d One of the club ' s projects was the sponsorship of an informal dance in th e Rotunda.

This year, in addition to the regular convocations, there were two special ones: the in- stallation of Dr. Oliver, and the Honors Convocation, which is to he continued. i 1 1 [ 103] Marian Kinzie, Editor Well, here we are!

" When Sandy Wilson first wrote this spoof of the " Twittering Twenties " in England he thought it would have appeal for a small group of people. He was wrong. Audiences in London, New York and all over the United States have enjoyed its fun. R.P.I, gave it unprecedented acclaim. THE KIDS " The Kids, " an original script by Charles Best, was given a prior-to- Broadway production here through the cooperation of the Southeast- ern Theatre Conference. This story of Hungary ' s Freedom Fighters was intense and dramatic. It gave our actors an opportunity to test themselves in serious drama. Lih: KTH % . . TWELFTfi IGHT " Twelfth Night " was a performance to be remembered at R.P.I. Each member of the cast gave an excellent por- trayal of the Shakespearean comedy. The stage sets, along with the costumes, added to the medieval atmosphere, giving the audience a feeling of participation. THE RECLINING FIGURE " Reclining Figure " was especially appropriate for R.P.I. , since it was concerned with art and art fakes. Written by Harry Kernitz, this witty comedy provided audiences with many laughs as well as something to think about.
