and marriage plans. However, above all there
was the spectre of the draft and how to fulfill our
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.

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
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
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.

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.

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

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.
