and marriage plans. However, above all there was the spectre of the draft and how to fulfill our military obligation. Wfith these thoughts of the future ever-present in their minds the juniors of jonathan Edwards went through the third year of their Yale careers. Most of us took part in many and varied activi- ties, ranging from athletic to service and to aca- demic. Quite a few of us supplied leadership in our chosen field. The year began with some juniors already hold- ing key positions in large University-wide groups. Tim Oppenheimer was our representative on the Prom Committee, which came through with an exceptional show again this year. Tim and Bill Hilgendorf were our Yale Key representatives, and showed prospective Yalies the beautiful New Haven campus. jay W'ilkinson supplied political leadership to the Yale community as the Presi- dent of the Political Union. WVhile John C. Mey- er, that ever-present Conservative leader, was also active in the political milieu of Yale. Spiders were also present on the fall athletic teams. Paul "Vroom-Vrooml' Prewitt and Bill Hilgendrof earned starting positions on the vars- ity football team, while Tim Oppenheimer earn- ed his letter in Soccer. The fall also saw Sandy Somerville, Karl Marlantes, and Vic Fasano as vital cogs on the J.V. football team. More men were present on the winter sports teams. John johndroe and Rob Milbank showed well on the track team, while Chris Wick won a starting berth on the wrestling team. Hockey was a sport in which the juniors really shined. Rick Tilghman, Dwight Miller, and Wint Rit- chie were important to the success of that team. On the non-athletic side many Spiders also came to the fore. Scott Settle was elected Presi- dent of Phi Gamma Alpha fraternity, and Bob Anetis was chosen to be the Executive manager of the Student Laundry, thus becoming the heir apparent to be the Chairman next year. Mike Winger was named Associate Managing Editor and Barry Golson was chosen as the Friday Editor of the Yale Daily News. Dave Herzer could be seen every Saturday afternoon in the fall as one of our football cheerleaders. Steve Small was elected Public Delations Director of WYBC. Not all activity of our class was devoted to organized, all-Yale functions. One had but to wander over to Entry HA" to find the perpetual card game, usually bridge. Sometimes a few players would be lost to the "Green Felt jungle," as Weiner and Barry would organize a game. When winter came, the juniors left. Roadtrips were not an uncommon sight, even on weekday nights. Not infrequently a dozen or so Spiders I can,t stand it anyrnoref tripped on a YVednesday night. Another aspect of class spirit was devotion to organizations. Even with its large comple- ment of varsity athletes, the junior class contri- buted many stars to the Spider intramural effort. The soccer team was led by Nick Thacher and Bob Crawford, while the basketball teams were led by Scott Settle, Bill Hilgendorf, Bil Rosen- blatt and Tim Oppenheimer. Karl Marlantes was elected Social Chairman in january, and his hard working committee of assistants, including john Groman and Al Kenney, produced a successful Spring social schedule. YVhen not working on this committee, or Hlling his job as Secretary of the Advisory Board, Croman could be found in the depths of the college, at the Print shop. Having completed another outstanding year, the juniors looked forward to tap day, law boards, comps, the senior prom, and graduation. -Bill Rosenblatt

came from JE. This did not mean, though, that we neglected our own. Paul Farren's social com- mittee and Murphy's Advisory Board worked endlessly for the college. In addition, a private team, heretofore unsung, worked behind the scenes to maintain JEls place in the sun. It is time to give them credit, as they were responsible for much of our enjoyment in this college. At Right Flake, there was John Henderson, manning the Left Lip spot were Les Reese and Renny Daly, while Tom Elghanayan held down the Rear Grossout position. In the center of the line were Al Johnson at Right Do-It-All, Bob Randall at Middle Bounce, Roger Putzel at Left Flame, and, anchoring the whole thing, Murphy Levin as the Man in the Middle. Rounding out the backfield were Harvey Bun- dy at Left Bobtoss, Van Leichliter at Right Cool, Al Hoffman on Afterburners, and Bill Ruth at Fullout. Coaches were Frecks Blumstein and Wee Wally Woleben. With this lineup, we bravely entered our last two years. Junior year many of .us began to realize that it couldn't last forever, so some even started to study, with an eye on graduate school. This was before the Great Father opened his arms and said, "Greetings!" When they started playing for keeps in Vietnam, many heard the other call: Harvey Bundy got engaged, Jon Richter married, and Land and Ressler began to look around in earnest. Greengard and Wolf, on the other hand, kept tripping on Wednesday nights-they weren't worried. Indeed, social life in flourished these two years, despite any anxiety over what would come next. Junior year we enjoyed falmostj the foot- ball games, and the Gala Ball, attended by THE President, was the highlight of the spring term. Senior year was marked by several interest- ing events. In the fall, we were first in the blood drive and last in charities, thus showing some- thing of our sense of values. While most JE geniuses waited to hear from law and med schools, several got into OCS and, from Decem- ber through February, Richie Silverman left to join the Army. The Advisory Board made a peaceful transition to the juniors, as no one formed any flying wedges that year. 'lf 'Xl fl? A memory of JE is thus a kaleidoscope of im- pressions. Charlie Jester's art work, John Ewell's causes, Bob Roth's guitar, and Henry Mobley's pipes will be as real in our minds as the Cannons' teas, the meals that occasionally defied descrip- tion, not to mention digestion, and the pomp and ceremony of the formal College functions. In the future it will be pleasant to remember these things and these people, for the present, at least, we can appreciate them, the good and the bad, for what they have made us. Steven P. Perskie jUN1oRs Junior year was one of achievement, change and rebellion for the class of '6'7. We found our- selves in the midst of a great sea of protests, while still trying to hold onto the conservative attitude which has always been prevalent at Yale. Many things held our attention. For some it was the choosing of a major and subsequent thought of grad school. For others it was that special girl J . .F if Z ' me Shot down again! Great lunch, zfsrfl il?

Hey buddy, got a light? SOPHCMORES One of the outstanding things about the Class of 1968 in Jonathan Edwards is the number of members who are no longer around. Of the sixty- six men who started their freshman year in the hallowed halls of Bingham, ten are no longer in the university and one has transferred to another college. The nine departures give the college a dropout rate above 1592,-somewhat above that advertised by the university. Of those remaining, Doug Seayer and Tom Cutler stepped up to re- inforce takeover of the Corinthian Yacht Club with their selection as officers. Steve Perry started the year several weeks after the rest of us, having been "delayed" in France. Aloe Ballow spent an enjoyable Thanksgiving with his week- end date, who stayed for a week. Dick Burling became the college con-man by persuading his date's mother that one half of Berkeley Col- lege was used as a supervised girls' dorm over Harvard Wleekend. Steve Tyre remained a Rest- less One, Gary Xvaldorf convinced many that the life of a Bachelor was the good life, and Ron YValker's dates were snowed again this year when his friends addressed him as B." Sandy Greene, Gleen Greenberg, and jim Leader had the most dates with the fewest girls of any three- some in the college. Iohn Guadnola, Phil Stevenson, and Jim Lati- mer discovered bridge, and, shortly thereafter, 3:00 A.M. Don Terry and Bob McCallum gave LE. two varsity basketball players, while George Cole, Ed Modell and Andy Sharkey sparked the j.E. A-team. Back during football season, Phelps Riley astounded the sports world in the Bowl every Saturday with his passing-between halves. Whit Smith, Rick Sperry, Tom Harmon, Pete Clark, and Chuck Coggeshall sparked the spider hockey team while Bowly Betts and Livy Miller skated for the j.V. Nick Bancks proved to be one of SNETCo's best customers and also ran the Serpenfs Tooth. Peter Akwai and Lance Hidy had the most attractive signs in Yale Station, though next year Peter will have to carry on alone since Lance joins Richard Muehlke in the five-year B.A. program. Lance will spend next year in Nigeria, Dick in Thailand. Tad Thacher refiected on the coming summer, to be spent teaching the young women of Cape Cod all the tricks-of sailing. Paul Alexis, Joe Wise and Tim Young all looked forward to sum- mertime European trips, while Bill Zucker looked back upon the wonders of a week spent in Puerto Rico after exams. Ron Rosenbaum proved to be a real terror of the slopes, while roommate Todd Sweeney showed championship form at the ski lodge. john Wiles was often seen returning "home" to Conn College for reasons which can only be guessed at. Jelf Wilkens added the Dix- well Avenue figure skating championship to the several other, better known titles he has won. Cary Neiman, Mike Berger and Bob McCallum made a very strong bid for best furnished and decorated room. VVhile mentioning honors, let it be recorded that repeat winners George Cole and Phil Stevenson were joined by Dick Burling and Tim Young on the 1966-67 Advisory Board. Finally, ALE. sophomores elected Bob McCallum and Phil Stevenson to membership in Yale Key. CYEIK
