ANNUAL PUBLICATION OF THE SENIOR CLASS OF MRGINIA POLYTECHNIC INSTITUTE, BLACKSBURG, VIRGINIA " . . . . Her past has been a glorious one, but the greatness of her future shall know no bounds. In the fields of science, industry, agriculture, commerce, or wherever the call to duty or service may be sounded, there you shall find her sons and daughters. Imbued with her principles of personal honor and integrity, her spirit of loyalty and comradeship, they shall move ever forward as leaders in the world of tomorrow. To her future greatness and to those who have made her great — her administration, her faculty, her alumni, and her students — we humbly dedi- cate this — THE BUGLE OF 1948 The increase in applications for admission to col- leges and universities has again made it necessary, as on two previous occasions, fo r the Board of Visitors of Virginia Polytechnic Institute to con- sider a plan for the expansion of V. P I. In 1872 the Commonwealth of Virginia, under the Congressional Land Grant College Endowment, ac- quired Preston and Olin Institute and established in its place Virginia Agricultural and Mechanical College. The year V. A. M, C, later renamed Virginia Polytechnic Institute, was established, a plan which called for the erection of the old brick group of academic buildings and barracks was adopted. The buildings and landscaping called for in this plan were completed before the first world war. After World War I the alumni initiated a move- ment to erect a memorial in the form of a gym- nasium. The Administration approved the build- ing and commissioned Warren P. Manning to study the campus, select the site for the memorial build- ing, and offer his plan for the future development of the college ' s physical plant. The Manning Plan, " the basis for the expansion of V. P. I. for all time, " was submitted and adopted in the early 1920 ' s. Manning ' s plan called for a break with the old quadrangle scheme and the adoption of the present oval, with the gymnasium and stadium on the minor axis. Opposite the War Memorial Building on the same axis an administration build- ing was to be erected sometime in the future. The plan also showed tentative future developments which are now represented by the stone dormitories, dining hall, agricultural group, Davidson Hall, Patton Hall, and the Mineral Industries Building. In a period of twenty years " the plan for all time " has been completely carried out and V. P. I. is not yet equipped to grant admission to all qualified applicants. The Manning Plan did not anticipate a school of 6000 students, which, by the end of The World War II Memorial Viewed from the Parade Ground m B - f ii Approach to the World War II Memorial from the Mall World War II, was forced on the consideration of the Administration. During the period between wars there was a steady increase in the enrollment at V. P. I. A study of this steady increase reveals it would have been sufficient to bring the student body to its present size even if there had not been a war resulting in educational benefits for the vet- erans The Administration, after studying this in- crease in enrollment and surveying the potential college students in the state, concluded that V P I. must expand sufficiently to accommodate 6000 students by 1955. As a result of its findings, the Board of Visitors, in 1946, engaged Alfred Hopkins and Associates to study and report on a plan for growth. The Hop- kins Plan, which calls for further development of the oval scheme, has not been approved in its entirety, but its basic suggestions have been adopt- ed and will be used in future developments. One feature of the plan which transcends all others is the erection of the War Memorial at the campus terminus of the Memorial Hall. Another firm of architects working with the alumni on the memorial also selected this focal point as the logical loca- tion of the monument. The Hopkins Plan divides itself naturally and prop- erly into groups located so as to provide facilities as conveniently as possible Imagine yourself standing in the doorway of the gymnasium looking toward Burruss Hall. You will see, in the future, on the left of Burruss Hall the applied science group including Davidson Hall and the Academic Science Building. At the far left, radiating from the oval, will be living quarters and the extended agricultural group. On the right of Burruss Hall will be Patton Hall, McBryde Hall, and the com- pleted Mineral Industries Building comprising the engineering group. At the far right on the major axis of the oval will be the memorial On rising ground behind the memorial you will see the Graphic Arts Building. To the right of the mall will be the new library in the same location as the - 7 ' v Agricultural Unit Number Four will connect the General Science Building and the Agricultural Engineering Building 2M if j|- " p.-- ii-i|l ; mJt ' « - 1 1 1 sbBi .iist ' isis ■ ' in ' .

Beyond the old quadrangle there will be new dormitories and the necessary dining facilities. As V. P. I. is a state institution the proposed buildings must be financed through the State Budgetary System, Thus, plans can be adopted and buildings designed but nothing may be erected until appropriations have been made by the Gen- eral Assembly Prior to 1948 partial appropriations have been made for the completion of the agri- cultural group and engineering laboratory, addi- tions to the infirmary, and erection of an academic science building. The money for the other develop- ments has been requested but as yet has not been approved. The expansion of Virginia Tech ' s physical facilities will not change the institution ' s primary aim; rath- er it will strengthen her position and increase her usefulness. V. P. I. will continue to serve the stu- dents, the state, and the nation in the fields of teaching, research, and extension Virginia Tech will continue to operate as a tech- nical professional college serving Virginians first . ' ., ' ,.! ' ■ Irtri 1 ' « " The Soils Laboratories will be housed in the Agronomy Lab, shown above and predominately. The work at V. P. I. will be so arranged as not to encroach on the areas of the other state institutions. The Agricultural and Engineering Experiment Stations and the Agri- cultural Extension Service will intensify their in- vestigations of current problems arising in indus- try and disseminate the information uncovered to the persons and agencies that will benefit by it The Agricultural Experiment Station which has been conducting research in the field of agri- culture since 1887 will continue experiments to find better farming methods. However, added emphasis will be placed on its study of the mani- fold problems of distribution, marketing, and social activities in order to make suggestions toward a better community life for the families in the rural sections of Virginia The facts learned through this research are distributed to the farmers and their families by the staff of the Agricultural Ex- tension Service. The Extension Service, serving as the connecting link between the Experiment Sta- tion and the rural families, now plays an integral part, and in the future will play an even greater part, in the life of every Virginian At present we do not have an extension service in the field of engineering, but we do have an experi- Our artist ' s conception of a portion of the new hospital as seen from the Mall The East Gate will connect Patton Hall and the new Engineering Hall ment station which is conducting some worthwhile research, which in most cases is connected with some phase of Virginia ' s industries. Virginia Tech has engineering branches in four of the leading industrial centers of the state: Richmond, Norfolk, Bluefield, and Danville. The Engineering Divisions, operating in cooperation with other educational institutions, offer the equivalent of six quarters instruction in any engineering curriculum taught at Blacksburg. The curricula taught at V. P. I. will continue to cover the fields of engineering, agriculture, and commerce, with added stress being placed on the preparation for positions in Virginia ' s industry. Al- though no additions are planned for the immediate future, the curricula will be kept abreast of cur- rent developments and trends with courses and departments being added if the need for them arises. The functions of resident instruction, research, and extension work are so closely related that each aids and strengthens the other. Since the experi- ment stations are in contact with agricultural, in- dustrial, and commercial interests, the student ' s attention is focused on practical situations, current attitudes, methods, and objectives. The student ' s introduction to the environment in which he will work after graduation and the broadened pros- pective the professors gain from research results in improved instruction. As more practical applica- tions of the courses are added to the curricula more students will realize that they will benefit by specialized graduate work in their chosen field. At present the degree of master of science is con- ferred with majors in twenty-six departments: the degree of doctor of philosophy is offered with majors in four departments. The college ' s enlarged facilities will make it possible for the graduate school to offer these degrees in other fields if enough students indicate a desire to take advan- tage of this training. In the past seventy-five years V. P. I. has grown from a college with a student body of 132 until it is now the largest school in the state. Following the same ideals that have given her a successful past, and with the students and professors, backed by loyal alumni, working with improved facilities, Virginia Tech looks to an even greater future. The staff of THE BUGLE is indebted to Messrs. Corneal and Johnston, architects and engineers of Richmond, for much of the information presented in this article. To them, and to Mr. J. Ambler Johnston in particular, we extend our heartfelt thanks. IB Our artist removes the trees and takes a look at Burruss Hall flanked by the Applied Science and Engineering Quadrangles J)r. (Waller S. cNt ewman GfaminLs tration Our President . . . On Greater V. P. I. It has been said that " the land-grant college movement has been responsible for making the United States the greatest tool-using nation of the world. " The truthfulness of this statement is supported by the unpar- alleled production of industry and agriculture in both World War I and World War II Our college and alumni played an important part in this productivity. To the students now enrolled at V. P. I., the record of our alumni is an inspiration and a challenge. The task confronting those of you to gradu- ate in the next several years will be a two-fold one; that of maintaining and increasing the productive capacity of the nation, as well as — and this is of equal importance — of influencing the social and economic pattern of our nation and the world. It is apparent that there is a renewed and extended interest in college education on the part of all our citizens. This, we believe, will be reflected in increased enrollment at Tech. To take care adequately of the students who will be coming to us in the next six to ten years, it will be necessary, we believe, practically to double the physical capacity of the present plant; to increase our efforts in research and graduate work; to add new courses sup- plementing present offerings; and to adjust the teaching load and salaries of the staff. Our success in securing the finances to meet these needs will depend, in a large measure, on the service that the institution can render the State and on the record and achievement of the present alumni and of you, the students who will soon go out as graduates. To the student body, I wish to express our deep appreciation for your fine spirit of cooperation in making the best of crowded conditions in the present abnormal situation, and we want to assure you of our conviction that you have contributed to a greater Tech through your industry, atti- tude, and spirit Walter S.

SCOTT President G. W. WATTS Vice-President R. W HAMEL Secretary R. M BAGLEY Treasurer The history of the Class of 1948 has truly been an interesting one When the members of the class first entered V P I in 1944, little did they realize that upon their shoulders would rest the responsibility of leading Tech ' s students through the transition period from wartime to peacetime conditions. During the war, a great percentage of the men were called to the service of their country, thus dangerously reducing the ranks of the class. When the conflict ended, however, men from previ- ous classes returned to complete their studies and graduate with the Class of 1 948, replenishing the thinned ranks. Thus, the Class of Nineteen Hundred and Forty-Eight has met and accomplished the mission set before it. It has helped preserve those traditions so dear to Alma Mater, and has led the school to the time where we can see in the future a truly Greater V. P. I.

Here her traditions are enshrined, her principles perpetuated, her future as- sured. The school develops the mind; the Corps develops the man. Leadership, loyalty, honor, comradeship — these are the things for which it stands. Countless are its sons, and enviable are the records which they have made. To- day the Corps is building to even greater heights of achievement. However, with all the changes that time has wrought, certain things have remained the same. As before, when the command is given to " Pass in Review, " the long straight lines of blue-and-gray clad cadets swing into sight. With heads held high, with steps unfaltering, with eyes ahead, the Corps marches on. . yy i,» » r» i v -. m m Left to right: T. G. Plummer, Treasurer; C. M. Forbes, Second Vice-President, J. P.

Walker, Secretary Rebuilding — this was the theme of the activities throughout the Corps during the past year. Many new ideas were adopted while many old practices were renewed The Corps has come a long way since the fall of 1947. Today it is a regiment strong. Its military and governmental agencies are functioning efficiently once again. Gone is the feeling of uncertainty which accompanied the years when the men of the Corps were away at war Great are the plans and hopes which its members hold for its future success and attainments Much has been accomplished in the past year but many things still remain to be done. The Corps is once again en its feet — there it shall firmly stand and move ever forward to its goal. n n n n f% Standing (Jury members) : Stevens, Plummer, Mobberly, Manning, Ames, Gillespie, Winslow, Webb, Glover, Fridley.

All members are elected by the Corps except the judge, who is appointed by the president of the Corps of Cadets with approval by the Senate. The court has as its primary function the unpleasant yet most important task of trying suspected violators of our honor system. Never has a sentence by the Honor Court been disapproved by the Administration or successfully con- tested in a civil court. This is a record of which the Honor Court is justifiably proud. 136 o n ?f mmtfwA Top row Proffitt, Large, Cannon, Etheredge, Harper, Showalter, Pinkham, Walbert, Orville.

Hie Senah enate The Senate of the Corps of Cadets is the legislative body of the Corps government Composed of elected representatives from each class in each battalion, it is the Senate ' s duty to decide on all ques- tions concerning the Corps which are not of a judicial nature During the past year the Cadet Sen- ate has been very active in the solution of numerous complex problems arising from the effects of a new and growing Corps. Numerous suggestions and recommendations have been forwarded to the ad- ministration on issues to improve Corps conditions. A complete study and revision of certain features of the Constitution, Honor Court, and freshman regulations has constituted a large portion of the Senate ' s work.

Gxecutlve Ljommith The Executive Committee of the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets is comprised of representatives from each class and is responsible for the name and reputation of the Corps of Cadets and for the admin- istration of freshman regulations. The Executive Committee ' s overall aim through its varied respon- sibilities is to maintain high and gentlemanly standards of conduct throughout the Corps. 137 C 0 ike iyorps . . . The Academic year of 1947-1948 has been a noteworthy one for the VPI Corps of Cadets Steady prcgress toward complete restora- tion of the high traditions established during prewar years has been maintained Increased skill in accepting and discharging respon- sibilities by the senior and |umor classes has been most noticeable. Though the scarcity of numbers with which the senior and junior classes are comprised has been a recognized obstacle, this handicap has been more than offset by the high quality of leadership demon- strated by the members of these two classes. The superior perform- ance of Cadet Company, Battalion, and Regimental Commanders and their staffs has strongly contributed toward steady progress. The required assignment of the Second Battalion to Rad-Tech barracks introduced an unprecedented departure and a real challenge to the cadets assigned to this campus Cadet leaders have risen to this challenge and have by their efforts overcome obstacles and solved problems with apparent ease Many of these problems have been maior ones in nature, but all have been solved This is a tribute to the resourcefulness and fidelity of all members of the Second Battalion. The sophomore class has performed its functions in a superior manner It has accepted and supported in an admirable way the strong and mature leadership of the senior class in eliminating a number of obiectionab ' e elements relating to management of the freshman class. It is realized that this contribution by the sophomore class has occurred during a period of transition, and that each member deserves much praise for his broad-minded contribution to- ward an improved VPI Corps of Cadets of tomorrow. The full fruits of this contribution will be recognized to a much greater degree in the years to come The College year of 1947-1948 bears witness of a restored Corps of Cadets ' strength equal to that of 1935-1936 Also, complete restoration of Advanced ROTC courses in all but the Ordnance and Signal Corps Units has been accomplished Establishment of the two new ROTC units on our campus is firm and healthy As time passes, the future members of the VPI Corps of Cadets will inherit much from the present members for which to pay thanks The members of all classes now enrolled can look back on 1947-1948 with pride in a |ob well done THOMAS W MUNFORD, Colonel, CAC, Commandant.

Concerts were played at Southern Seminary, Covington, Radford Women ' s College, Roanoke, Burruss Hall, and at graduation exercises. Spring quarter was high- lighted by many full-dress parades leading up to government inspection. Little rest was had by the band between wide activities in intramurals, rifle drills, marching, and concerts. Company spirit reached a new high as the band traveled to put on colorful exhibitions at Roanoke, Lynchburg, and Washington in support of our fine football team.

GERHARDT Lieutenont and Adjutant H G GILLESPIE Lieutenant and Supply Officer R T. NOLLET Sergeant Major Although the Engineers, V. P. I. ' s " Lost Batta- lion, " found themselves in the far-away hills of Rad-Tech this year, the battalion nevertheless maintained the rigid standards of the Corps of Cadets and embodied the revived spirit that has been characteristic of the Corps this past year. Not really lost, but merely exclusive, the batta- lion faced difficulties previously unknown to any unit in the Corps. All the upperclassmen had to make daily bus trips to the mam campus to attend classes and take part in college activities and duties. The freshmen, living and also taking classes in a drab, uncollegiate atmosphere, pitched right in to help make the reactivated battalion the best ever. The result has been, in spite of a good deal of healthy griping, high spirit and high morale. 153 a ompanij € Second row: Alexander, Schaffert, Scales, Portner, Payne.

Hilton of the Tech Engineer hard at work. C 4H e4- vital part of a student ' s college education consists of his extra curncular activities. Whether his interests lie in student government, dramatics, publications, social ac- tivities or some other form of student activity the expe- rience derived from these things will add much to the value of the education that he is striving to receive. At Tech a student has a great opportunity to show just where his interests lie. In return for his many efforts in extra- curricular work he can expect both credit and a great deal of personal satisfaction. It is through the personal asso- ciation found in various forms of activity that a student gets to really know his fellow classmates and future friends. -» " Houser Ames Clegg Beasley C wilian Stuoent Jjoaij President BENJAMIN E.

Before the war the civilian students were definitely in the minority, but with the return of the vet- erans, the Civilian Student Body has increased approximately ten times its pre-war size, and now constitutes the major portion of the college enrollment. The organization of the student body has progressed greatly under a new constitution which provided for a larger and more efficient Senate, a more effective administration of our Honor System, and consequently a more integrated and bet- ter informed Techman. The Civilian Student Body has endeavored to obtain a closer union with our Corps of Cadets to effect greater understanding, firm fellowship, and the fulfillment of our ultimate goal, the enrichment of our Alma Mater. 188 CAie C lneteen [jorli]-ei(jht Jjucfle Left to Right: Ernest G.

The big |ob for the business staff comes on Thursday afternoon when the Tech is prepared for mailing and campus distribution.

Monday night, the " dummy " sheet is laid out and an idea of ths content of the paper is obtained. At this time, the manager gets a general sketch of the bills to be paid.

The Business Staff this year not only expanded its circula tion greatly, but it also secured a greater volume of advertising. The members of the Business Staff receive practical experience in journalistic management and salesmanship which is of invaluable service to them in later life. 195 Business Manager S. W.

Since its founding, the club has con- stantly endeavored to improve social conditions on the campus and the social relations between the student body and the faculty. Through the efforts of a congenial and representative group of men, the Cotillion Club has realized a significant achievement toward raising the standards of this phase of campus life. After three years of temporary inactivation, the Cotillion Club resumed its normal activities in April, 1946. The tra- ditional hospitality and friendly atmosphere which has al- ways prevailed at Cotillion dances has been exceptionally apparent at a ' I sets of formals presented by the club since its reactivation. It is the hope of the Cotillion Club to continue in its efforts to further advance the importance as well as the quality of the social relations and activities on the campus of Virginia Tech.

During the 1947-1948 season the orchestra has been larger than any other dance band in Tech ' s history. The use of larger brass, reed, and rhythm sections has en- abled the present orchestra to play music which has more rhythmic and harmonic fullness than any featured before in the history of the Southern Colonels.

P. |. 42— GEORGE WASHINGTON 6 On October 3 1 , before a George Washington Home- coming crowd, in Washington, D. C , V. P. I. once again broke into the win column by run- ning over the Colonials to the tune of 42 to 6. On the second play of the game, Beasley broke through the secondary and romped 60 yards for the first score of the rally. Just three minutes later, it was Beasley again on a 58 yard run for Tech ' s second score. In the second quarter, Sterling Wingo took a punt on the Tech 35 and Ballard pounces on Pennell of Virginia Tech ' s Starters: Line: Meriwether, Ittner, Cooke, Burns, Barbour, Hess, Hopkins. Backfield: Collum, Bowles, Smith, DeShazo ■ Top: W. L. finally stops Wingo Center: Collum gets away against W. L. Bottom: Bowles makes Tech ' s third tally in the W. L. game ran it back to G. W. ' s 37, On the next play Wingo once again showed his amazing speed by scoring on a reverse without being touched At the half the score stood at 21 to 0. The Gob- blers came back in the second half and im- mediately began their scoring once more The fourth tally came when Bowles passed to De- Shazo in the end zone. On the play following the kickoff, G. W. fumbled and Walton recov- ered for Tech. After a sustained drive, Beasley scored his third touchdown of the day from four yards out. Shortly afterwards Adams intercept- ed a pass and returned it to the Washington 32. Dave Thomas went over for the score. Ross Orr then kicked his sixth straight extra point and Tech finished its scoring rally. The Colonials ' only score came on a 70 yard drive with Bernot hitting center for the sixpointer. V. P. I. 26— RICHMOND 14 The University of Richmond Spiders filed into Miles Stadium, wallowed in the mud, and come onto the field determined to defeat the Gobblers. However, it didn ' t take long for the lads from Blacksburg to show just who was boss. The first tally came in the early minutes of the game when Dick De- Shazo crossed the goal line. Shortly afterwards, Tom Burns sneaked through to block a punt and Meriwether ran 35 yards for the tally. Four plays later Bob Hess repeated this performance by blocking another punt and this time Adams did the scoring. At half time Tech led the vis- itors 20 to 0. In the third quarter Walton faded to pass, coudn ' t find his receiver, so ran all the way for Tech ' s final score. With V. P. I. ' s sec- ond and third team playing quite a bit, Rich- mond managed to push across two touchdowns and the game ended 26 to 14. V. P. I. 27— WASHINGTON AND LEE 14. Tech ' s Gobblers remained in the win column by knocking off the Conference leading Washing- ton and Lee Generals 27 to 14. Both teams scored in the first quarter; DeShazo going across from the three for Tech ' s score, and a pass play from Working to Fahey tied the ball game up, 7-7, In the second quarter, Wingo went on an 88 yard sprint for V. P. I. ' s second T D Bowles also scored as the first half ended and the Gobblers led 20 to 7. Neither team hit paydirt in the third quarter, but in the fourth Working tossed another into the end zone for a W L. tally. As the closing minutes of the game drew near, Walton faked to Wingo and went around end for the final score V. P. I. 14— V M, I 28. Virginia Tech ' s Gob- blers showed complete football supremacy over the Keydets from Lexington before a crowd of 33,000 on Thanksgiving Day, in the first half; but fell before a barrage of passes and went on to defeat in the second half. Sterling Wingo galloped 80 yards for Tech ' s first score in the first quarter. On the second play in the second quarter DeShazo carried the oval over from the three yard line. At half time the score stood at 14-0. The Keydets came back after the in- termission determined to win. Playing the weird- est football that Tech had faced all season, the Keydets from V. M. I., using spread formations scored four times and went on to win 28 to 14. The long passes from Thomason to Gantt were the highlights of the game, along with the line play of Jack Ittner of V P.

Despite a slow start, which saw the Techmen drop heart-break- ers to Georgetown, Quantico, and Carolina, the Gobblers rallied to defeat William and Mary ' s Indians here at Blacksburg for the first in a series of victories against Big Six competition. The most exciting game of the year was played in War Memorial Hall against Roanoke College. The score see-sawed throughout the game, and with fifteen seconds left to play, the Maroons led 43 to 42. Jack Shockey aimed a shot from mid-court, and as the crowd held its breath the ball swished through the net just as the timekeeper ' s gun popped. Tech had won, 44-43. Wriston sinks a hard one After defeating Roanoke, the Gobblers waded into the remainder of their schedule, and came out champs of the Big Six and sixth in Southern Conference play. The team was invited to the Southern Conference Tournament where it was defeated by the Carolina ' s White Phantoms after a hard-fought game. In the final analysis, excellent coaching, teamwork, and support added up to make the Tech 1948 basketball season a successful one. Fisher speeds past Carolina Chambers tackled by Washington and Lee Standing: Altman (coach), Kernan, Grove, Morris, Pogue, Goodwin, Mills, Thomas, Baker, Kibler, Jacobson. Seated: Wright, Williams, Nettleton, Johnson, Blalcck, Lane, Culbertson, Rosen (captain), Oliver, Adams, Barlow (assistant coach). ( Yifreshli YLCf Bill Altman ' s grapplers, though not so successful by statistics during the 1948 season, gained v aluable ex- perience which will guide them through future seasons with greater success. Faced by the toughest schedule in years, the matmen rolled up their sleeves and proceeded to give all their highly favored opponents hard, tough fights — fights typical of all V. P. I teams. Surely the highlight of the season came at Raleigh, N. C , when the N. C. State Wolfpack, defending conference champs, fell before the Gobbler grapplers, 6V2-15Vi. Lost to the team by graduation will be its most valu- able man, Captain Ed Rosen. His services will be missed next year as greatly as they were enjoyed this year. Blalock and Orzano of Duke at the start of their match s WLrnnwtq The Tech natators, 1948 style, accumulated 384 points to their opponent ' s 343, during a season featuring four wins and six losses in dual competition. The team, coached ably by Lou Onesty, turned out numerous ex- hibitions of swimming skill, both in individual and team events. Outstanding individual was Frank Brouse, who during the season lowered the school record for the hundred yard freestyle from :58.2 seconds to the fast time of :56.8 seconds. Frank surprised all opponents who had defeated him earlier in the season when he came back in the state meet to turn the tables on his foes. Constant point getters in the sprints were Walter New- man, Bob Aumack and Billy Blair The team, handicapped on the whole by lack of ex- perience, nevertheless managed to dethrone the V. M. I Keydets from the state championship at the State Col- legiate Conference Championship meet by the stellar performances of Co-Captains McKeithen and Greenlee, and Brouse, Dance, the Rennie brothers, Wood, Smith, Jarrett, and Walter Newman. Bill Smith, Roby Jarrett, Jerry Newman and " Ig " Krakoviak climaxed a splendid season with their outstanding diving performances in the state meet when the first three, Smith, Jarrett and New- man placed in the finals, Krakoviak barely being nosed out by last year ' s champ, Martin of V. M I., in the qualifying rounds With the experience gained by this year ' s competition, next season should be highly suc- cessful. T ' ■■ " i ZOOY0BREA5T 440Y0FRFF i n U.

Defeated only once in dual competition, the trackmen went on to cop second honors in the state meet at Williamsburg, and fifth place in the Southern Conference meet at Chapel Hill Paced by Co-Captains Frank Magill and Bob McLear, the cinder- men completely outclassed W. L , Wake Forest, Richmond, and V M I, by scoring an average of almost 100 points a meet After participating in the state and conference meets, Tech ' s thinclads wound up their season in a dual meet with N. C. State. On that warm, sunny spring day, an inspired Orange and Maroon team entered Miles Stadium and proceeded to come within two points of upset- ting the highly favored Wolfpack, 64-62. This meet was the closest and surely the most exciting dual meet in the Southern Conference last year. As the Bugle goes to press, the track team, ' 48 version, is whipping itself into shape for the on- coming season. Each cinderman has deep in his heart the desire to make the ' 48 season the most successful in Tech ' s records, and with that old traditional Tech spirit to drive it on, the team will ac- complish that desire.

The Rifle Team, coached by Major Hopson, Sergeant Birdwell and Sergeant Watkins, fired its way through a very stiff schedule this season. Led by J. B Scales, the riflemen have participated in both postal and shoulder-to-shoulder matches with the best teams in the Continental United States and Hawaii. The results and averages compiled by these men stand favorably in national records, and the team may well be proud of its work. Uross (country This year the Cross Country team was again in its place on the fall sports program after an in- active war period. Under the excellent mentorship of coach Lou Onesty, the harriers pounded the turf to a very successful season. They were undefeated in dual meets, swamping both V. M. I. and Roanoke College, placed second in a tri-meet with Virginia and W. L, and were runners-up in the annual Southern Conference tussle. By far the outstanding man was the captain of the team, Curtis Shelton, who took first place or tied for first in all the meets, and placed third in the Southern Conference meet.

It is a self-governing, formally-organized body of regularly matric- ulated male students of the college The purpose of the association is to foster, main- tain, promote, manage, and conduct all forms of intercollegiate athletics at Virginia Tech, and to assist insofar as is possible with the intramural and physical education program. Members elect the officers of the association and vote on all matters re- quiring attention. Since the association is incorporated as a non-stock corporation under the laws of the State of Virginia, the Athletic Council serves in the capacity of a board of directors, and formulates the policies and plans of the association and sees that they are carried out. The council is composed of three students, four faculty members, one member of the General Alumni Association, and the Director of Athletics. The student members of the council must be members of the association. Sports Skots 1. Tech grapplers hard at work. 2. Big Jim and opponent. 3. The cheerleaders: Dub Whitescarver, C.
