In the short year since he accepted the leadership of the Institute, he has fitted himself to the many and varied tasks which confront a college president, with as much ease and facility as if he were taking over command of but another of his ships of the Navy. Already his energetic personality has won our hearts. We will take away with us memories not only of President Cluverius as a forceful and interesting speaker, but, even more, as a real friend and leader, a man whom we are proud to call our “Prexy”. Wat Tyler Cluverius President L MEMORIAM It was with feelings of deep personal loss that we learned of the passing of our beloved “C.D.”, late last February. As much as any man on the Hill, Professor Knight has been the wise counsellor and understanding friend of every stu¬ dent with whom he came in contact. His unselfish interest in college activities with its attendant problems has won for him on the campus a place which it will be difficult to fill. His deep understanding and quiet constructive criticism straightened the path for many a student’s stumbling foot¬ steps. A sage advisor he was, but also a conscientious worker whose intelligent and skillful planning had shown itself many times during his years in charge of electrical main¬ tenance at the Institute. A capable engineer, we know, but we will remember him more as the real teacher he was; he made sure we knew the subjects he taught, but, even more, he showed us, by his own example, how to be real gentlemen. CARL DUNHAM KNIGHT John Boynton’s Dream THE HISTORY OF W.P.I. By HERBERT F. TAYLOR, ’12 1865 1940 I Herbert F. Taylor JUST seventy-five years ago, May 9, 1865, this college gained official rec¬ ognition. It was on that day that John A. Andrew, Governor of Massachusetts, signed the legislative bill to incorporate the Worcester County Free Institute of Industrial Science. Several steps of much greater signifi¬ cance than this official act had been taken during the preceding four months. First, John Boynton had entrusted to his cousin, David Whitcomb, the sum of $100,000, which was practically all his wealth, for the rather indefinite purpose of founding a school. Mr. Boynton, a relatively un¬ known manufacturer and banker of Templeton, Mass¬ achusetts, had acquired his money in the making and marketing of tinware. In his early years he had been an itinerant peddler of tin products in rural New Eng¬ land. David Whitcomb, once Boynton’s partner, had be¬ come a Worcester hardware merchant. It was to a Worcester minister, the Rev¬ erend Dr. Seth Sweetser, that Mr. Whitcomb turned for advice about how the Boynton gift could be used to best advantage. Dr. Sweetser displayed an immediate and vig¬ orous interest, partly because another manufacturer, Ichabod Washburn, had discussed with him a similar plan several years earlier. He and Mr. Whitcomb called into a conference two other im¬ portant Worcester citizens, Emory Wash¬ burn, a former governor of Massachusetts, and George Frisbie Hoar, later to become a distinguished United States senator and statesman. These four developed the pat¬ tern for a technical school, which Dr. Sweetser wrote out as John Boynton s let¬ ter of gift. It was submitted to several educators and approved by Mr. Boynton. Dr. Sweetser skillfully and tactfully drew Ichabod Washburn into the project. His contribution was the building, equip¬ ment and endowment of a machine shop, in which boys would receive a practical knowledge of manufacturing. Another prominent and wealthy Worcester citizen, whose interest in the school was aroused, was Stephen Salisbury. He gave the hill¬ top property of about eleven acres, on which the Institute buildings were to be constructed, and contributed $22,000 Alumni Field Gate Ill] PEDDLER Beginning Sanford Riley Hall toward the fund for the erection of Boyn¬ ton Hall. Other citizens of Worcester, including many workmen in local facto¬ ries, gave the balance of the fund for this first building, which cost about $75,000, including equipment and grading of the grounds. The Washburn Shops cost about $15,000, exclusive of equipment. The incorporators of the Institute were Seth Sweelser and George F. Hoar. They were also members of the first Board of Trustees, of which Stephen Salisbury was president, David Whitcomb, treasurer, and Phinehas Ball, clerk. Other important figures in the early administration were Ichabod Washburn, Emory Washburn, D. Waldo Lincoln, Charles H. Morgan, and Philip L. Moen. The man chosen to be first principal of the Institute was Charles Oliver Thompson, 32-year-old graduate of Dartmouth, a man of much scientific ability, wide vision and resourcefulness. Before taking up his duties he went to Europe to study tech¬ nical education. He gathered about him a small but able faculty, including George I. Alden, just graduated from Harvard, to be professor of Mechanical Engineering; Milton P. Higgins, also a graduate of Dart¬ mouth, to be superintendent of the Wash¬ burn Shops; George E. Gladwin as in¬ structor in drawing and Miss Harriet Goodrich as instructor in Mathematics. Soon thereafter, Miss Marietta S. Fletcher succeeded Miss Goodrich as feminine mem¬ ber of the staff, and taught languages for three years. John E. Sinclair, classmate of Dr. Thompson at Dartmouth, began a long career as professor of Mathematics in 1869. He married Miss Fletcher the following year. There were thirty-two boys who quali¬ fied for admission to the first class in the fall of 1868. They started work immedi¬ ately after the dedication of Boynton Hall, November 11. This was an elaborate, all¬ day ceremony, in which many distin¬ guished educators and executives took part. The first courses available to students were Mechanical and Civil Engineering, [ 12 ] 65 W . P . I Chemistry, Drawing and Architecture. Much of the instruction was elementary but exceedingly thorough. Many hours of shop work were required and a six-months’ apprenticeship course in the shops was introduced in 1872, continuing until 1893, when the four-year course was adopted. Stephen Salisbury was the chief bene¬ factor of the Institute during the first decade. He contributed an instruction fund of $120,000, a modern language fund of $40,000, and a graduate-aid prize fund of $10,000. Interest on the Boynton gift provided a library fund of $27,438. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts granted a fund of $50,000, and $30,000 was re¬ ceived from the estate of Ichabod Wash¬ burn for maintenance of the shops. Important additions to the staff during this ten year period included Alonzo S. Kimball, Amherst, ’66, as professor of Physics; Edward P. Smith, Amherst, ’65, as professor of Modern Languages; and Thomas E. N. Eaton, Amherst, ' 68, as junior professor of Mathematics. Dr. Thompson, after a distinguished service as organizer, principal and teach¬ er, resigned in 1882 to become first presi¬ dent of Rose Polytechnic Institute. He died three years later. This school was modelled on the Worcester plan, as were the Georgia School of Technology, Armour Institute and several other later technical schools. Dr. Thompson’s suc¬ cessor was Dr. Homer Taylor Fuller, Dartmouth, ’64, principal of St. Johns- bury Academy. He received the title of President of the Faculty in 1887, at which time the corporate name of the school was changed to Worcester Polytechnic Insti¬ tute. During Dr. Fuller’s administration, 1883-1894, there were several changes in administration and numerous additions to the staff. Stephen Salisbury, Philip L. Moen, David Whitcomb and Lucius J. Knowles died. They were succeeded by Stephen Salisbury, Jr., as president of the Board, Waldo Lincoln, G. Henry Whit¬ comb, and Charles G. Washburn, ’75, first graduate to be elected to the Corporation. The younger Mr. Salisbury gave $100,- 000 in 1887 for the construction of the Salisbury Laboratories, in memory of his father. An addition to the Washburn Shop was built in 1892, and funds amount¬ ing to $100,000 for construction were granted by the State in 1894. An addition to endowment from the same source had been received in 1886. A course in Elec¬ trical Engineering was introduced in 1889, and one in General Science in 1891. PEDDLER Among new members of the staff who were to become well known teachers were Dr. Leonard P. Kinnicutt, in 1882, a graduate of M. I. T., as professor of Chemistry; George H. White, ’76, as pro¬ fessor of Civil Engineering; and U. Waldo Cutler, ’74, who later became professor of English. George H. Haynes, a graduate of Amherst, William W. Bird and Joseph 0. Phelon, W. P. I. graduates, joined the staff in 1887. Bird became head of the Mechanical Engineering department and Phelon a professor of Electrical Engineer- Massachusetts also granted scholarship funds to the Institute beginning in 1896, which continued in increasing amounts un¬ til 1922. Few other gifts were received during the Mendenhall tenure, 1894-1901. Among new members of the faculty dur¬ ing this period were Charles M. Allen in Hydraulics, Harold B. Smith as head of the new department of Electrical Engi¬ neering, Arthur W. French as head of the department of Civil Engineering and A. Wilmer Duff as head of the department of Physics. Mr. Higgins, Professor Alden Alclen Hydraulic Laboratory ing. Alton L. Smith, ’90, and Zelotes W. Coombs, Amherst, ’88, both to become dis¬ tinguished teachers, were added in 1890. Levi L. Conant succeeded T. E. N. Eaton as professor of Mathematics in 1891. Dr. Fuller was succeeded in 1894 by Dr. Thomas Corwin Mendenhall, former superintendent of the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey. Early in his adminis¬ tration the construction of the Engineering Laboratories, Power House, Hydraulics Laboratory and President’s house were completed from funds given by the State. and Professor Gladwin resigned. Edmund A. Engler, former dean of en¬ gineering at Washington University, was the fourth president, from 1901 to 1911. Two buildings, the Foundry in 1902 and the Electrical Engineering Laboratories in 1907, were built during his administra¬ tion. The latter was financed from a be¬ quest of $200,000 from Stephen Salisbury, who died in 1905. He was succeeded as president of the Board by Charles G. Washburn, who had previously served as treasurer. The Board also lost its senior W . P . I member, Senator George F. Hoar, in 1904. The first major alumni assistance to the Institute began in 1905 with the purchase of land on West Street for the construction of an athletic field. A group of alumni also purchased in 1906, the corner prop¬ erty at Salisbury and Boynton Streets to enlarge the campus. Changes in staff included the retirement of John E. Sinclair, the addition of Ray- Campus at the turn of the century mond K. Morley in Mathematics, Carl D. Knight, Frarcis J. Adams, and Clarence A. Pierce in Electrical Engineering, Fran¬ cis W. Roys in Mechanical Engineering, Arthur J. Knight in Civil Engineering, Morton Masius in Physics, Charles J. Adams in English and Burton L. Gray in foundry practice. Dr. Walter L. Jen¬ nings became head of the Chemistry de¬ partment following the death of Dr. Kinnicutt in 1911. Dr. Levi L. Conant served as acting president from 1911 to 1913. During this period the alumni began a campaign for $300,000 to build the athletic field and gymnasium. The former was completed in 1914, and the latter in 1916. The In¬ stitute also received, in 1912, an increase in the State grant to $50,000 a year. The fifth president, Dr. Ira Nelso n Hollis, 1913-1925, came from Harvard University, where he had been professor of engineering. He was a prominent member of the profession, and in 1916 became president of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. Two major crises marked his administration at the Institute. One was the war period, dur¬ ing which Worcester became a war college. The other was a critical need for endow¬ ment, following the cessation of the State grant. Dr. Hollis and prominent alumni carried on a vigorous campaign in 1920, which increased the invested funds by $1,500,000. Of this amount, $350,000 came from the General Education Board, and $375,000 from industries to establish scholarships, the balance from alumni and friends. Three large bequests were re¬ ceived during this twelve-year period, the Charles Allen fund of $160,000, the Al- zirus Brown scholarship fund of $140,000, and the estate of Elmer P. Howe, ’71, amounting to nearly $200,000. Dr. Hollis retired in 1925. To succeed him the Trustees selected Ralph Earle, a former member of the class of 1895, and graduate of the U. S. Naval Academy. During the war he had held the rank of rear admiral and had given distinguished service as chief of the Bureau of Ordi¬ nance, U.S.N. Admiral Earle’s delightful personality immediately won the respect and admiration of faculty, students and alumni. Three tasks confronted him: to expand and improve campus facilities, to The old Test Car PEDDLER strengthen the financial structure, and to build morale. He gave himself vigorously to accomplishing all three. The first improvement was the beauti¬ fication of the campus, including care of trees, new walks and grading. Early in 1926 the swimming pool in the gymna¬ sium, left unfinished ten years before, was completed through the generosity of H. J. Fuller, ’95, and J. E. Aldred. Immediately thereafter, the trustees and the family of R. Sanford Riley, ’96, contributed funds for the erection of the dormitory for fresh¬ men. Sanford Riley Hall was ready for occupancy in 1927. Field buildings and steel bleachers were erected on Alumni Field and many items of equipment were added. President Earle revived daily chapel and secured funds for monthly assembly lec¬ tures. He also persuaded members of the classes of 1885 and 1886 to remodel the Boynton Hall chapel, on the grounds that it had been damaged when, during their undergraduate years, they had stabled Mr. Higgins’ horse there. The endowment was increased by nu¬ merous gifts and bequests, largest of which were $164,000 from David Hale Fa nning, nearly $100,000 from the estate of Mrs. Feonard P. Kinnicutt, $175,000 from the estate of George I. Alden, and $100,000 from the estate of Mrs. Florence S. Thayer. These raised the endowment to $3,700,000 in 1936. Near the end of President Earle’s administration, the In- titute lost two prominent alumni, William F. Ames, ’82, and Moses B. Kaven, ’85. Dr. Kaven, most active member of the Board of Trustees, had made many con¬ tributions to equipment and scholarships. His bequest to the Institute was in excess of $750,000. The first increment of a similar bequest from Mr. Ames was $250,000. The financial improvement from these sources made it possible for President Earle and the trustees to go forward with a program of campus expansion and im¬ provement. The first step was to remodel a portion of Boynton Hall. The next was to build a substantial addition to the Salis¬ bury Fab oratories, named in honor of Pro¬ fessor Feonard P. Kinnicutt, and opened in 1939. Fate in 1938, the trustees of the George I. Alden Trust agreed to build the beautiful Alden Memorial, a building for student activities and the general library. Plans for a new Mechanical Engineering building were also started. President Earle died before his program was completed. He was stricken during a chapel talk in February, 1939. His four- teen-year administration bad been the most fruitful and inspiring period in Institute history, and his loss was mourned by thousands of his friends. Professor Francis W. Roys was appoint¬ ed acting-President and served in that capacity until the election of Wat Tyler Cluverius in September, 1939. Professor Roys was then appointed Dean of Engi¬ neering. President Cluverius was also a retired rear admiral, with a distinguished Naval career, and a classmate of Admiral Earle. He entered into the work of the In¬ stitute with vigor and enthusiasm to carry forward the program that had been planned. With the Alden Memorial com¬ pleted in the spring of 1940, a plan for securing the balance of funds needed for the Mechanical Engineering building was put into operation, and numerous improve¬ ments in instruction and campus life were projected. At the end of seventy-five years the In¬ stitute has become a leading college of engineering. Its campus has expanded from six to thirty-seven acres, its enroll¬ ment from thirty-two to a fixed maximum of 650, and its staff from four to seventy- five. To John Boynton’s generous gift of $100,000 the re has been added more than $4,000,000, and the scope of the college has far exceeded the most optimistic visions of its founders.

P . I To the members of the Administration should go the credit for unifying the sev¬ eral departments comprising the Worcester Polytechnic Institute and thus making them function together as a complete unit. It also falls to their lot to care for the extensive office work, recording, filing, maintaining our relations with the general public, and the care and upkeep of the Administration buildings and grounds of the school. All these tasks are performed with amazing promptness and efficiency; so much so that we are scarcely aware of their existence. Without them the Institute might well be likened to a ship without a rudder. Wat Tyler Cluverius .... Jerome Willard Howe Francis William Roys Zelotes Wood Coombs . . . Gertrude Rogers Rugg . . .

[ 21 ] PEDDLER IX APPRECIATION WALTER WILLIAM MONROE In June, Walter William Monroe will have culminated his long career of faith¬ ful service on the faculty of Worcester Tech. It was twenty-eight years ago that he first became associated with W.P.I. Since that time he has been constantly endeavoring to make better practical engi¬ neers of Tech students. A very practical man himself, having worked up through the ranks from apprentice to first class pattern maker, it was his job to give us an insight into the problems confronting the man in the shop, and to teach us apprecia¬ tion of the workers’ point of view. That he did his job well is attested by the testimonies of alumni; for what Tech man can ever forget the long hours spent in the freehand drawing classes where with a few deft strokes of his dre aded red pencil “Pop” could transform a seemingly mas¬ terful bit of work into a thing horrible to behold; or the days in Pattern Shop see¬ ing the fruits of our labor consigned to oblivion via the band saw. Although at the time, many of us realized but little his potent influence we have come to know in later years the value of his teachings. It is with the realization that Tech is losing a man it can never replace, a gentle¬ man of the old school, and a regular fel¬ low, that we remove the name Walter W. Monroe from the official roster. We know full well that as he enjoys his well earned rest, many are the engineers who have indelibly engraved in their hearts the rapier strokes of his red pencil technique. 122 ] W.P.I Dean Howe Curriculum All Worcester Tech curriculum lends itself to division into five parts. Princi¬ pally they carry the names of the major courses of study. Mechanical Engineer¬ ing, pertaining to the practical applica¬ tion of those principles of physics particu¬ larly dealing with the laws of motion and the effect of forces upon the properties of bodies in connection with the working of machines, is the course highest in student enrollment. Electrical Engineering is the course designed for those students study¬ ing the transmission, generation and utili¬ zation of electricity. Civil Engineering comprises those courses pertaining to the designing and construction of all types of public works including especial stress on structures, highways and railroads, rivers, harbors and irrigation, and the broad field of surveying. Dealing with the science that treats with the composition of sub¬ stances and the transformation that they undergo is the major interest of the De¬ partment of Chemistry and Chemical En¬ gineering. Last of the main division of courses are those made up of the Physics Department. In this course are offered subjects dealing with matter and motion along with mathematical methods and the study of natural physical phenomena. All of the above departments are supplemented in study by the special departments of English, Modern Languages and History as well as those courses in business admin¬ istration offered by the Department of Economics, Government and Business, and those in mathematics taught by the Mathe¬ matics Department. W.P.I. is fortunate in having facilities for adequate application in practical labo¬ ratory and field work. Of especial men¬ tion are the modern equipped electrical labs, the mechanical laboratory, hydrau¬ lics laboratory, and the commercial Wash¬ burn shops. The Civil Engineering Depart¬ ment is favored by having Camp Stevenson where real prob lems of the practicing engineer are faced and solved. Several types of laboratories are available for the Physics Department. Chemistry principles are practiced and preached in the Salis¬ bury Labs. There is also much emphasis on the physical development of the stu¬ dents, and courses in this are given by the Department of Physical Education. Dean Roys 123 ] PEDDLER DEPARTMENT HEADS Francis W.

[ 33 ] R. Forkey R. Shlora R. Dunklee K. Fraser R. Brand President V. President Secretary Treasurer Historian History of the Class of 1940 The Class of 1940 had its official be¬ ginning at 2:00 P.M., on Monday, Sept. 28, 1936. At that time the members of the class gathered in the lecture room of the E. E. Building, to hear the welcome of the man who was soon to become for each one of us leader, counsellor, and friend-—President Ralph Earle. After his brief but cordial talk, we proceeded to meet our advisers, those faculty men whose task it was to acquaint us with life at Tech. How well they accomplished this aim is shown by the fact that by the time the up¬ per classes returned to school on Wednes¬ day of that week the Class of ’40 was already organized with Dick Davidson as temporary chairman and plans already underway for the Paddle Rush and the Rope Pull, the first of the interclass com¬ petitions. Before the scheduled time for these or¬ ganized contests, however, numerous rath¬ er informal encounters with our self- appointed persecutors, the Class of ’39, took place. The ignominy of being forced to wear Freshman caps, black bow ties, and worst of all, garters, did serve one useful purpose. In one short week of this torment we Freshmen were so up in arms that we soundly trounced the Sophs in the Paddle Rush and the track meet. Our joys were short-lived, however, for on the following week our stalwarts were dragged in short order through the muddy waters of Institute Pond by the Sophomore Rope Pull team. It was later found that the Sophs in their zeal to win had used more men than the allotted number and accord¬ ingly the Tech Council voted to award the points for the Rope Pull to us. In the meantime members of our class were active in varsity sports as well as in the interclass competitions. Peters, Gus¬ tafson, and Forkey were performing well on the gridiron; Fraser and Wingardner had won regular places on the soccer eleven; and Cameron and Dunklee were [ 34 ] W . P . I toiling over the hills for the cross country team. By a slow and laborious process our class officers were finally elected. Carl Fritch was named president, and Hotch¬ kiss, Coleman, Forkey, and Goodchild filled the other offices. At the close of the regular fall sports season the interclass football and soccer games were held with the Sophs victorious in each event. About this time the interest of the The Water Cure Freshman Class as a whole was taken up by the feverish activities of fraternity rushing. Studies and other duties were shamefully neglected as “bull sessions” in the dorm lasted far into the night, par¬ ticipants discussing heatedly the merits of the various houses. When the smoke had cleared away, it was found that 118 men had been pledged to the several fraterni¬ ties, thus marking the beginning of count¬ less new friendships that will outlive all other college associations. The remainder of the term passed quickly, extra-curricular interest centering on the success of the basketball team, and the various social activities, such as the Tech Carnival and the Inter-fraternity Ball. Then came mid-years and our first en¬ counter with the faculty men in their least enjoyable mood. Nearly all the members of the class passed the ordeal successfully in spite of our misgivings and from then on exams were regarded with respect but without fear and trembling. Officers of the class for the second term were Forkey, Crosby, Shaw, Fritch, and Goodchild. Further interclass competition resulted in winning the swimming meet, but bow¬ ing to the array of Sophomore stars in the basketball game and the bowling match. By capturing the tennis, golf, and rifle matches, however, we were able to win out Proving Seniors do study 135 ] - 19 PEDDLER Senior Electric s Splash Party in the Goat’s Head competition by the narrow margin of one point. After the welcome rest of the summer we returned in September only to find the campus cluttered up with a rowdy gang of infants known as the Class of 1941. We proceeded, of course, to teach the up¬ starts proper respect for their betters. In spite of our admitted superiority on the campus the spirited Frosh managed to down us in the Paddle Rush, track meet, and Rope Pull. Class of ’40 men conti¬ nued to be outstanding in varsity athletics, however, with Lambert, Fritch, and Bodreau adding their names to the list of football stalwarts. Our numerous regu¬ lars on the football and soccer squads brought wins in these two sports over the determined Freshmen. The coming of the basketball season found Forkey and Shlora contributing to the success of that team, while Love, Crandall, Platukis, Johanson, and Maggiola were consistent point-win¬ ners for the swimming team. Our class basketball team walked off with top hon¬ ors, defeating not only the Freshmen but also the Seniors, who had previously downed the Juniors. The annual contest for the Canival Cup was won by the Class of ’40, with Alex Patterson writing and directing the prize¬ winning skit presented at the Tech Carni¬ val in competition with the Freshmen. Class officers for the first term of the Sophomore year were Crosby, Shlora, Shaw, and Dunklee. Outstanding social event from the point of view of the second year men was the highly successful Soph Hop, held at the Worcester Country Club on May 27. At the Hop members of the Sophomore Class [ 36 ] W . P . I appeared in their new ' class jackets now so familiar on the campus. The selection of the Queen of the Hop following a grand march of all the couples was an innova¬ tion in Worcester Tech dances. Second term class officers were Shlora, Dunklee, Johanson, and Blaisdell. The fall sports season of the Junior year was the most successful ever experienced by Tech’s athletic teams. Members of the Class of ’40 had no small part in the undefeated seasons of the football and soc¬ cer teams. Forkey, Fritch, Lambert, Hotchkiss, Gustafson, Peters, and Hayes were gridiron standouts, and Fraser, von Bremen, Blaisdell, Brand, and Goldsmith booted the soccer ball with gusto. Class officers for the entire Junior year w r ere Dunklee, Fraser, Higgs, Newton, and Graham. Following close upon the marvelous feats of the football and soccer teams came the basketball season which was also high¬ ly successful. Shlora and Forkey formed the most consistent pair of guards that the school has seen in many a decade. The same winter saw Tech’s return to promi¬ nence in the swimming realm with Rid¬ dick, Love, Platukis, and Kuniholm doing prominent work. The big event of the college social year is always Junior Weekend and 1939 was no exception. In spite of misunderstand¬ ings about the band, the committee headed by Ed Hafey provided a dance that will long be remembered by all who attended. The Masque presented its annual produc¬ tion on the following evening followed by the always popular Round Robin dance at the fraternities. Our Junior Week thus compared favorably with those held by other classes. The spring athletic teams, baseball, track, tennis, and golf, also derived ample support from the men of ’40. While it cannot be said that these teams accom¬ plished the same results as did the other sports already mentioned, nevertheless, they upheld the honor of the school creditably. Toward the end of the Junior year those men who are to be the leaders on the campus during the Senior year are chosen. Accordingly, Dunklee was elected presi¬ dent of the Tech Council, Forkey w r as elected president of the Athletic Associa¬ tion, Shlora, Blaisdell, Forkey, Fritch, Lambert, Fraser, Hotchkiss, Gustafson, and Peters were tapped for Skull, and Fritch, Brand, Dunklee, Coleman, Shlora, and A hard day at the orifice PEDDLER Goldsmith were elected to Tau Beta Pi. The officers of the class for our final year at the Institute were Forkey, Shlora, Dunklee, Fraser, and Brand. Once more the athletic program was a distinct suc¬ cess. The names of Shlora, Forkey, Fritch, Gustafson, Lambert, Riddick, and Fraser were even more indelibly written into the lists of Tech s athletic heroes. The student engineering societies were unusu¬ ally active with the ASME and the ASCE holding conventions on the campus. The men of ’40 were by now the leaders in all the activities on the campus and un¬ der their guidance each organization en¬ joyed a successful year. One of the highlights of the year was the inauguration of Wat Tyler Cluverius as seventh president of the Institute. In this short time we have come to know President Cluverius as a man of boundless energy, intelligence, understanding, and good fellowship. Already, he has endeared himself to the undergraduates and won the respect of the alumni. The last few weeks of the term have naturally been occupied with interest in commencement activities. President For¬ key and General Commencement Chairman Dunklee, in conjunction with their various committees have worked hard to make these activities memorable. The Senior Banquet, the Baccalaureate Service, the Senior Prom, Class Day, and Commence¬ ment—these are never - to - be - forgotten events in our college life. And so the story of the undergraduate days of the Class of 1940 comes to a close. But this has not been the complete history of the class. Rather it is only a prologue pointing out hazily the possibilities of the real story that is yet to be written. “Take a Reading! ' ' [ 38 ] j 5 w . p . i I PSALM OF AN ENGINEER’S SWEETHEART Verily, I say unto you, marry not an Engineer. For an Engineer is a strange being, and is possessed of many evils. Yea, he speakcth eternally in parables which he calleth formulae. And he wieldeth a big stick which he calleth a slide rule, And he hath only one bible, a hand book. He thinketh only of stresses and strains, without end of thermodynamics. He showeth always a serious aspect and seemeth not to know how to smile, And he picketh his seat in a car by the springs therein and not by the damsels. Neither does he know a zvaterfall except by its horsepower, Nor a sunset except that he must turn on the lights, Nor a damsel except by her live weight. Always he carries his books with him, and he entertaineth his sweetheart with steam tables. Verily, though the damsel expects chocolates when he calleth, She openeth the package to disclose samples of iron ore. Yea he holdeth her hand but to measure the friction thereof, And he kisseth her only to test the viscosity of her lips. For in his eyes, there shineth a far away look that is neither Love nor longing—rather a vain attempt to recall a formula. There is but one key to his heart and that is Cum Laude, and When his damsel writeth of love and signs with crosses, he, Taketh these symbols, not for kisses, but for unknown quantities. Even as a boy he pulleth a girl’s hair to test its elasticity, But as a man he discovcreth different devices; For he counteth the vibrations of her heart strings; and He seeketh ever to pursue his scientific investigation. Even his own heart flutterings, he counteth as A vision of beauty, and enscribeth his passion as a formula. And his marriage is a simultaneous equation involving tivo unknowns And yielding diverse results. Verily, 1 say unto you, marry not an Engineer.

SKULL Skull, the school’s own senior honorary society, was founded in 1911 to organize the campus leaders in a concerted effort to further the Tech spirit and stimulate interest in campus activities. As men out¬ standing in personality and ability, Skull members do much toward directing student opinion. They also cooperate with the school’s executive body in controlling interclass rivalry. The Skull holds a dis¬ tinctive position among the Tech institu¬ tions because it is a local organization with a select group of members, and be¬ cause it is fundamentally a student organi¬ zation with considerable influence. The tapping ceremony in which new members are pledged is held each year in one of the spring assemblies, and is par¬ ticularly impressive. The respect which Tech holds for this group is evidenced by the large but silent assembled body wit¬ nessing the tapping. Robed initiates pass among the students, selecting their new members with a hearty clap on the shoul¬ der. This year everyone was pleased by the timely selection of a faculty member, Dean F. W. Roys. Dean Roys has always taken an active interest in student activi¬ ties. His big brother campaign started last year while he was acting president has helped to curb the malicious trend of hazing activities. Choices of new men are based on popularity, participation in ath¬ letics, class and social activities, and are limited to eleven men, no more than three of whom can be from the same fraternity. The meetings of this group are secret and [ 88 ] W . P . I “—exert a powerful influence in regulating hazing” STUDENT MEMBERS Kenneth R. Blaisdell Raymond J. Forkey Kenneth C. Fraser Carl F. Fritch, Jr. Frank G. Gustafson Warren C. Hotchkiss are held in the Skull Tomb, located on the southeast corner of the campus. In order to stimulate the interests of the Freshman class, the Skull awards a trophy each year to that Freshman who has done the most for the college. The name of the recipient is engraved on the trophy cup. This custom was started in 1926. The award of this prize does not in any way mean that the winner is guaranteed mem¬ bership in the society. Last year’s prize was awarded to Norman Kerr. FACULTY MEMBERS Herbert F. Taylor M. Lawrence Price Edwin Hiccinbottom Donald G. Downing Ivan E. Bigler Albert J. Schweiger Francis W. Roys Benjamin A.

Zipser One of the largest honorary fraternities in this country, the society of Sigma Xi was founded at Cornell University in 1886, to serve as the Engineering equivalent of the Liberal Arts’ Phi Beta Kappa. Its avowed purpose is “the promotion of re¬ search in science” and under skillful guid¬ ance, it has grown to a membership of about twenty thousand. SIGMA XI The chapter at the Intitute was founded in 1908. Faculty members hold full membership, whereas high ranking stu¬ dents of the senior class are chosen as associate members. This title confers upon them almost all benefits of the society. Associate members are elected on the basis of scholarship and general worthiness. The society holds several meetings throughout the year at which scientific subjects of the day are discussed. The first open meeting was addressed by Pro¬ fessor R. D. Evans of M.I.T., speaking on “Some Applications of Nuclear Physics”. Professor Evans demonstrated with the aid of models the fundamentals of our present concept of nuclei and the transmu¬ tation of the elements. Several other good speakers have addressed open meetings throughout the year. 190 ] W . P . I K. Fraser, R. Parks, A. Dinsmore, D. Lowd, F. Crosby P. Bartlett, D. Smith, R. Coleman, D. Zipser, W.

Goldsmith TAU BETA PI The honor society of Tau Beta Pi was founded at the Institute in 1885, “to mark in a fitting manner those who have con¬ ferred honor upon their Alma Mater by distinguished scholarship and exemplary character as undergraduates in engineer¬ ing, or by their attainments as alumni . . . , and to foster a spirit of liberal culture in the engineering colleges of America.” Each year two elections for membership are held; in the fall and in the spring. Seniors in the upper fourth and juniors in the upper eighth of their respective classes are eligible for membership. Preliminary to the annual fall pledging ceremony, Tau Beta Pi awards a prize to the sophomore who in his freshman year, has maintained a first honor rating and has also distinguished himself in activi¬ ties or sports. This does not indicate fu¬ ture membership in the society, but means that the man so honored has the distinction of being the one whose qualities are con¬ sidered nearly those of a Tau Beta Pi man. This year a log-log decitrig slide rule was awarded to William L. Ames for possessing these requirements. PEDDLER 191 ] 194E D. Bates, S. Lang, F. Miller, V. Lombardi, IF. Sodano E. Hafey, H. J.

Atkinson INTERFRATERNITY The Interfraternity Council was organ¬ ized at Tech in 1911, four years later becoming a member of the National Inter¬ fraternity Council. The Council is com¬ posed of two representatives from the faculty, Prof. Paul R. Swan, Chairman, and Prof. Harold J. Gay, Secretary, and one from each fraternity. Fraternity rep¬ resentatives are Carl F. Fritch, Jr., P.G.D., Judson D. Lowd, T.X., Edward E. Hafey, S. A.E., Donald R. Bates, L.X.A., Frank A. Crosby, Jr., A.T.O., Victor J. Lombardi, T. K.P., Walter H. Sodano, P.S.K., and Donald T. Atkinson, S.P.E. The object of the Council, as written in the constitution, is to promote a closer relationship between the chapters of the fraternities represented on the Council, the faculty, and the student body. Meet¬ ings are held each month with each frater¬ nity taking its turn as dinner host. The system of “Rushing” at W.P.I. is one of the best. Several years ago the old system was thrown out in favor of the new, and now the “Rush Weeks” function very smoothly and sanely. A booklet of rules, with the amendments added during The Thinker W.P.I the past year, is published each year. Each year, through the generosity of Trustee George F. Fuller, several prizes “—encourages intramural sports ” 193 ] COUNCIL are awarded to those chapters who are the winners of the general competition among the fraternities. Two prizes, a first and second, are awarded for the highest schol¬ astic ratings. To be eligible a fraternity must have a weighted average of 72 per cent or better, and must equal or exceed the college average. Another scholarship prize, called the “Improvement Prize”, is awarded to the fraternity, among those not winning a Scholarship Prize, that shows the greatest improvement in scholarship during the preceding year. A new prize was given this last September. It was awarded on the basis of combined excel¬ lence in scholarship and outside activities. This year’s Interfraternity Ball has been acclaimed as one of the best dances ever held at Tech. For the second time in Tech history a big-name band was secured. Red Norvo and his band presented music of both smooth and swing style to a capac¬ ity crowd of Tech socialites. PEDDLER ALPHA TAU OMEGA K. McIntyre, S. Williams, J. Alcock, E. Linden, J. Loomis, G.

ALPHA TAU OMEGA In 1904, six students in mechanical en¬ gineering secretly organized a fraternal club which they called the “Arm and Hammer”. Two years later, on November 27, 1906, they formally established it as Gamma Sigma chapter, on receipt of a charter from the national of Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity. The fraternity re¬ mained at the site of its formation, one of the recently razed houses on West Street, until 1910. At that time it moved to its present home at 24 Institute Road. During the past academic year the mem¬ bers of Alpha Tau Omega have partici¬ pated extensively in nearly all of the ac¬ tivities on the Hill. It has among its numbers, members of the honorary engi¬ neering societies, Skull and many recipi¬ ents of the varsity “W”. Nearly every club has one or more Gamma Sigs in its ranks. Besides the individual activities, many social events have taken place within the fraternity. Among these are the annual Christmas Day Banquet, the Parent’s Day Banquet, a formal Pledge Dance, which was a huge success, and a House Party which was held during Junior Prom week¬ end. With the fine group of freshmen that was pledged this year, it is certain that Gamma Sigma will continue on its upward swing. [ 94 ] W . P .

LAMBDA Pi Zeta of Lambda Chi Alpha was start¬ ed as a local fraternity, Zeta Gamma Tau, on December 5, 1912, by a group of Juniors of the class of 1914. The new local fraternity decided to petition Lambda Chi Alpha and on June 5, 1913, was grant¬ ed a charter. The first chapter was lo¬ cated on Fruit Street, but in 1916 the present house on Trowbridge Road was purchased. Since then, Lambda Chi has been con¬ stantly active on the Hill. This year the organization has experienced a successful pro gram of activities. Enjoyable house parties accompanied the chapter’s support of the Interfraternity Ball and the Junior CHI ALPHA Prom Week-end. Several house dances, Initiation and Parent’s Day Banquets, and a Spring Formal were held. Several cups were captured in interfraternity sports, a high scholastic average was maintained, and numerous offices in Tech’s organiza¬ tions were held. The fraternity as a whole was further strengthened by an amalgamation with Theta Kappa Nu fraternity, creating Lambda Chi Alpha the third largest Greek letter organization. The death of Prof. C. D. Knight was a great sorrow to all the members. His efforts, especially during the earlier years, account for its present stability. W . P . I I FACULTY Prof. H. A. Maxfield Prof. W. W. Locke Dr. R. K.

PHI GAMMA DELTA Phi Gamma Delta was founded at Old Jefferson College, which is now Washing¬ ton and Jefferson, at Cannonsburg, Penn¬ sylvania, on May 1, 1848. It is the thir¬ teenth oldest Greek-letter fraternity in America. The local chapter, Pi Iota, of Phi Gam¬ ma Delta was founded largely through the efforts of Archibald MacCullagh, a member of the Beta chapter at the Uni¬ versity of Pennsylvania. MacCullagh influenced two friends to start a chapter at Tech and on December 11, 1891, Pi Iota held its first meeting. Since these early days, this chapter has striven to uphold the highest ideals of fraternal relations. Phi Gamma Delta has always stressed the qualities of gentlemanliness, scholarship, and leadership. A Fiji believes that these characteristics are necessary for a student to obtain a well-balanced life. This year the chapter succeeded in pledging a fine group of freshmen who will carry on the principles already so well established. Because of these high ideals, Phi Gamma Delta has been on a steady path upwards. This year Pi Iota gained second place in the General Activities Prize competition given for obtaining the highest number of points for extra-curricular activities. Phi Gam was also awarded second prize for scholarship and reached second place in interfraternity athletics. 198 ] W . P .

When a chapter of the na¬ tional fraternity Theta Chi appeared on the campus, the name of the local group was changed to Kappa Xi Alpha. As the group grew in size and importance, its members realized the desirability of a na¬ tional affiliation. Accordingly, in 1915 the local chapter obtained a charter as Epsilon Deuteron Chapter of Phi Sigma Kappa. The past academic year has found Phi Sig one of the most active houses on the hill. The new game room in the basement of the house has been the scene of in¬ numerable “Vic” dances. House parties were held on the occasions of the Inter¬ fraternity Ball and the Junior Prom, with the fellows crowding into the annex and vacant rooms in the dormitory while the house was given over to the girls. Or¬ chestra dances were held at the Round Robin and the Pledge Dance. Scholastically and athletically, as well as socially, Phi Sig has also been success¬ ful. Honor students, varsity athletes, and members of Skull, Tau Beta Pi, and Sigma Xi, are numbered among its members. [ 100 ] W . P .

However, the Civil War halted expansion for some time and it was not until 1883 that the first chapter was estab¬ lished in the North. Nine years later the first New England chapter was organized at Boston University. This was soon fol¬ lowed by chapters at M.I.T. and at Harvard. Meanwhile the Tech Cooperative Society at W.P.I. had been interested in affiliation with a national organization. It petitioned the fraternity and on March 10, 1894, the chapter was installed in an initiation at Auburndale, where it had been the custom of the three Boston chapters to hold joint meetings. During the past year the members have engaged in numerous activities on the Hill. The annual rushing season ended with most gratifying results. In fraternity and college sports S.A.E. members participated very successfully. Social life functioned very well as shown by the many dances and house parties held throughout the term. One of the most successful dances took place on Homecoming Day in the Fall and was attended by Tech men from all the houses. 002 ] W.P.I Record; Colors, Royal Purple and Old Gold; Flower, Violet. 50,388; Active Chapters, 112; Inactive Chapters, 26; Alumni Chapters, 90; Publication, The Founded at University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, Ala., March 9, 1856; Members, FACULTY Prof. H.

SIGMA OMEGA PSI For twenty years, Theta Chapter of Sigma Omega Psi has represented the na¬ tional fraternity of Jewish men at W.P.I. Always actively interested in the social and athletic functions of the college, S.O.P. has maintained a very creditable scholastic record as well. Primarily dedicated to further the ideals of Jewish student life in American col¬ leges, the national fraternity was founded at the City College of New ' York in 1913. The Silver Jubilee of the organization’s inception was observed last summer in New York with a portion of the exercises being held at the World’s Fair. To keep the various chapters in a true spirit of cooperation, monthly District Council meetings are held among the New England chapters, and inter-chapter sports and social programs are conducted throughout the year. This year, at Tufts College, Theta participated with other New Eng¬ land chapters, in the playoffs of a basket¬ ball tournament. Two other noteworthy events occurred in the history of the chapter during the past year. The first was the purchase of a permanent home at 25 Dayton Street. As a result, a firmer feeling of security and friendship has pervaded the fraternity, and its pride in the house has shown it¬ self in all activities on the Hill. The other important development was the granting of a charter to the alumni chapter of Theta by the national organization.

SIGMA PHI EPSILON Recognized as a local from 1906 to 1924, Delta Tau expanded into a national fraternity, Theta Upsilon Omega in 1924. This fraternity merged with Sigma Phi Epsilon in 1938 to become a chapter in one of the largest national fraternities in the world. Local progress has been as interesting to watch as the fraternity’s na¬ tional expansion. Sig Ep men are actively engaged in all activities on the Hill. Eight members shared a majority of Coach Bigler’s foot¬ ball assignments this fall, and three mem¬ bers of this year’s fine basketball team were Sig Ep men. The chapter rates high in the realm of interfraternity sports, tak¬ ing many of the top positions. Scholastic- ally, Sigma Phi Epsilon was honored by being awarded the Improvement Prize of seventy-five dollars. Two members be¬ long to Skull, and the Tech News and the Peddler list many Sig Eps on their staffs. A Fall Sports Banquet was held on December 17, 1939, to honor the football and basketball men. Other frequent week¬ end social events have been held through¬ out the year. On Washington’s Birthday, a ski outing was enjoyed on Mount Wachu- sett with a supper at the Ski Lodge fol¬ lowed by songs and general entertainment. On April 28, the annual convocation was celebrated with a banquet and a dance. [ 106 ] W . P .

The society was formed for the purpose of assuring proper con¬ sideration of all candidates for athletic teams, and membership was restricted to those who had received a varsity letter in one of the recognized sports. This re¬ quirement was soon changed to include any men who were primarily interested in “fostering clean athletics at W.P.I.” This broadening of membership require¬ ments attracted many outstanding men to the organization and much good work was done. By 1909 the society had become a strong, permanent organization and began to consider affiliation with a national fra¬ ternity. On March 11, 1909, word was received that a petition had been approved by Theta Chi Fraternity, and Pi Omega Pi became Epsilon chapter. As the chapter grew, the house on Lancaster Street was felt to be inadequate so the new duplex house on the corner of Salisbury Street and Dean Street was taken over and re¬ modelled. Since that day, Epsilon has grown stronger with every passing year, and to¬ day asserts itself as one of the leading fraternities on the Hill.

In five years, the group had grown and prospered to such an ex¬ tent that they applied for, and were grant¬ ed, a charter as Lambda Chapter of Theta Kappa Phi, a national Catholic fraternity. Entrance to this largest of Catholic fra¬ ternities occurred in November 1935. The local chapter outgrew its original home on Hackfeld Road in 1937, and its present chapter house was purchased. This house, one of the largest on the Hill, is at 26 Institute Road. Theta Kaps have been particularly ac¬ tive in athletics and general activities since the organization was founded. This year there were six men on the baseball team and four on the varsity basketball squad, not to mention the recipient of the football “W” and the captain and mana¬ ger of golf. In spite of this contribution to varsity teams, the house placed high in the interfraternity sports. Theta Kaps are very active in all the clubs on the Hill and are especially interested in the New¬ man Club. The fraternity’s social program this past year included several dances and get- togethers, climaxed by the Junior Prom Week-end. Several faculty members were dinner guests during the school year, and Admiral Cluverius was entertained at a special banquet.

TECH COUNCIL The Tech Council, composed of leading students and a representation from the faculty has as its policy the promotion of greater harmony among classes as well as between classes and administration. The Council executes its duties by en¬ gaging in many of the Campus activities. It sponsors “At Home Day” and the Tech Sports Banquet. The Freshman Rules and the Eligibility Code are included in the association’s responsibilities. The activities of the Council are exem¬ plified by the many improvements which it has negotiated this year. It decided to restrict all after-rally-parades to the cam¬ pus. The rules of the rope pull contest were modified to prohibit the use of im¬ plements in digging holes, and to insure the centering of the rope before the con¬ test. This year’s Council completed the arrangements for a permanent College Jacket. It is hoped that this will end yearly class alterations concerning style, color, and price. The loss of Professor Carl D. knight, a faculty representative, is greatly regretted. His work was exceptionally fine, and his departure leaves a big hole in the Coun¬ cil ' s personnel. —sponsors the Tech Banquet ” [114] ' SC W . P . I G. Douglass, N. Maleady, F. Miller, R. Brautigam R. Holby, D. Lowd, C. Goodchild, D. Stevens, P. Sivan (Faculty) The Student Christian Association is the oldest and the largest undergraduate or¬ ganization at Tech. Every student who signs the S.C.A. statement of purpose is a member of this unpretentious society. This year the Tech carnival was re¬ placed by the “ ’Vember Varieties”, a comedy presented by the social committee S. C. A. and the Musical Association. This affair was a huge success, being a sequel to the skit of last year’s Carnival. The voluntary chapel services that are held every weekday through the Fall and Winter are also the work of the Associa¬ tion. This society supplies entertainment for the Freshmen during their introduction week. It sponsors the Annual Reception at the beginning of each school year. Be¬ sides this orientation program, the society provides the Tech Handbook and the pool tables, ping-pong tables and magazines at the Dormitory. Less conspicuous, but no less construc¬ tive, is the placement of students for part- time work. Because of its inconspicuous way of doing business, many students do not realize the importance of the Associa¬ tion. It is, however, always doing its ut¬ most for the students. PEDDLER L115] S.

Experi¬ ence has shown that it is somewhat unde¬ sirable to have these personal sketches on the same page as the pictures, since many of these, while amusing at the moment, may not be exactly what one would like to be remembered by in later life. Candid photographs of the faculty have been eliminated and up-to-date formal pictures of our instructors appear in this issue. A section on the seventy-five years of Worcester Tech, written by Professor Herbert F. Taylor, is featured at the be¬ ginning of the book.

Weekly which went out of circulation early in the cen¬ tury. The News was founded a few years later in 1910, and this weekly student publication has reported the current social, athletic, and scholastic events of the col¬ lege ever since. Each issue of the News includes a roto¬ gravure section published by the Collegiate Digest. This is a very popular feature, for it contains illustrations of campus goings-on throughout the country. Of spe¬ cial interest to the Engineers are the co-ed snaps which highlight its pages. Also in the News is a “Letters to the Editor” column in which students are offered an [ 118 ] TECH NEWS BUSINESS STAFF F. W a ter house, B. Phelps, P. Bartlett, E. Jacober opportunity to express their views on cam¬ pus functions. The editorial policy has continued to be that of presenting merited praise and helpful criticism of college affairs; in this way, striving to influence student opinion for the betterment of the college. Clark Goodchild, besides his duties as Editor-in-Chief for the past year, has been very active in procuring and installing some new photo-engraving equipment. The job was rather a difficult and, at times, discouraging one, hut will make it possible for the staff in the future to have photo¬ graphs as a regular feature of the News. Clinton Gerlach, who, with Goodchild, was instrumental in setting up the outfit, was elected to the newly created position of Photographic Editor, to take care of this work. As a reward for his conscientious and capable work as a junior Editor, Stanley Majka has been elected Editor-in-Chief for the coming year. He has a competent WEEKLY staff behind him and the continued success of the Tech News seems assured for next year. Sunday Morning Makeup 1119] PEDDLER . Hinman, A. Allen, E. Hebditch, W.

GLEE CLUB For those who enjoy a good song, and have some singing ability, the Tech Glee Club affords ample opportunities for fol¬ lowing their musical interest. The Glee Club, under the capable guidance of Di¬ rector Clifford Green, holds annual joint concerts with nearby colleges and partici¬ pates in several of the college functions. This year’s organization proved to be even more successful than those of pre¬ vious years, due, in a large measure, to the fine renditions of a newly formed octette. The Glee Club opened their season at the “ ’Vember Varieties” in the Alumni Gymnasium. Many of the college func¬ tions which followed included selections by the Glee Club. The selection, “Captain of the Pinafore”, from Gilbert and Sulli¬ van’s operetta “H.M.S. Pinafore”, was one of their outstanding numbers on these occasions. Concerts at Marlboro, Framing¬ ham, and Pembroke were well attended. The annual radio broadcast from Bos¬ ton and Commencement Day exercises completed the season’s work. “—highly praised” W . P . I Band on Parade No athletic contest or assembly would be complete without a contribution from the band. Under the fine direction of William F. Lynch, this organization adds color to all school functions. The band is composed of about forty members, and is one of the more active associations on the Hill. The concert each Spring, on “At Home Day”, is the ' —adds color to school functions” BAND crowning point in the hand’s work for the year. At this year’s concert the well- known selection “Carmen” was ably ren¬ dered by the Tech Musicians. However, the band does not confine it¬ self to purely classical numbers. Its reper¬ toire contains many lighter selections, one of which, “The Circus Parade”, was re¬ ceived very enthusiastically at each pre¬ sentation. The loss of members through graduation is a problem that the director has to con¬ front every year. As usual, the Freshman class very capably filled the empty chairs, making the prospects for next year quite promising. The effort and time spent by the band in preparing for the innumerable events of which it is necessarily part, is greatly appreciated by the students and faculty alike. [1211 PEDDLER K. Parsons, G.

BOYNTONIANS One of Tech’s most popular organiza¬ tions is the Boyntonians. This twelve piece dance orchestra again completed a very successful season under the leadership of Bancroft Anderson. With the addition of a vocalist, Miss Margot Kennedy, to the band, Tech’s swingsters surpassed their performances of former years. Another very attractive addition was the new ' music stands which added considerable color to the appear¬ ance of the organization. The Boyntonians again sponsored the Dorm Dances. For the remainder of the year, they were occupied with playing at the dances after the basketball games. Some novel arrangements by H. McKerrow and N. Osgood were given high praise, which they justly deserved. The Boynton¬ ians have become very well known in the vicinity of Worcester and are judged by some to be the best college band in New England. They might well be called W.P.I.’s advertising agent, in that various engagements carry them to colleges, prep schools, and high schools throughout the entire state. We may well be proud to have such an efficient and capable organization, and may their success be increasingly prosper¬ ous in the future. F. Benn, K. Benson, K. Parsons. A. Anderson, Leader, H.

The Masque, Worcester Tech’s associa¬ tion for the expression of the dramatic talent, continued its usual custom of pre¬ senting a play the Saturday evening fol¬ lowing the Junior Prom. The Masque was organized in 1911 for the purpose of pro¬ ducing original plays. The more recent MASQUE trend of the association is to present for¬ mer Broadway successes. On April 13, at Tuckerman Hall, the Masque association came forth with an¬ other outstanding hit, ‘‘The Torch Bear¬ ers”, by George Kelly. The presentation dealt with the prepara¬ tion and production of a play by Mrs. Pampinelli. Everything imaginable hap¬ pened to the players; cues were mistaken, moustaches fell off, and players ran into each other. The whole play was very en¬ tertaining due to the mishaps of Mrs. Pampinelli’s players. The rehearsal, the subsequent performance, and the res ult on the home life of the town people provided an extremely entertaining evening. The play was a marvelous success due to the fine acting of the feminine leads, who are all prominent in Worcester ' s dra¬ matic societies, and the Masque players; the work of the stage crew, and the excel¬ lent direction of Mr. Rugg.

Aviation has, in the past, been largely limited to organizations such as the Army, Navy, and the Commercial air lines. The Civil Aeronautics Authority, as organized, gives a large number of college sopho¬ mores, juniors, and seniors an opportunity to fly at reasonable rates and with a sound background and training, both on the ground and in the air. Tech has been allowed a quota of thirty men. The C.A.A.’s have been given a thor¬ ough ground training in meteorology, air navigation, theory of flight, aircraft en¬ gines, parachutes, radio, and Civil Aero¬ nautics Regulations. This instruction was done by Professors Merriam, Staples, and Finlayson, and Benjamin Stone, a meteo¬ rologist from the Jennings Brothers Air Service. The group then took to the air. Every man is expected to solo, and then to put in enough hours to obtain his pilot’s li¬ cense before the end of the college year. The enthusiasm of the group was so great that, despite the heavy snows that fell during the months of January and February, flying instruction was conti¬ nued by redesigning and fitting skiis to the plane. “—despite heavy snow ” [1241 R.

The Outing Club, now only in its third year of existence on the campus, has be¬ come one of the largest and most popular clubs at Tech. Its membership consists of forty-five students plus a number of active members of the faculty. The fall activities were limited mainly Ski Team drawn up in review OUTING CLUB to hikes, of which there were two of im¬ portance. These were intercollegiate hikes with Mount Holyoke College which proved to be very successful. The Outing Club played a prominent part on the campus by leading the college in winter sports. Interclass hockey was promoted by the club. A skiing team was also one of the club’s enterprises. This team represented Tech at several meets held on Mount Wachusett, competing against the Worcester Ski Club and col¬ lege teams from Brown and Mass. State. During the spring vacation a number of the members made their last bid for skiing by taking a three day trip to Pinkham Notch and Mount Washington. More hiking during the spring wound up a very successful ’39-’40 season that will surely be remembered by all of its members. PEDDLER [125] [ 126 ] K 5- G. Raymond, R. MacKay, J. Durkee, R.

CAMERA CLUB The development of the Camera Club has, because of the interest shown by the members, been marked during the last few years with a series of improvements and new ideas. The major improvement this year was the addition of a set of new lockers in the dark room. The club hopes that in the near future additional lockers may be installed so that each member may use one. The meetings of the club, held once a month during the year, were varied in their nature, varying from instructive talks by prominent local photographers to the famous “Model Night”, at which time a professional model was engaged to pose for the group. This event brought out every member and greatly stimulated the membership drive. During the year the club maintained a bulletin board in Boynton Hall in order to give the members an opportunity to exhibit their work and create interest in the organization among the student body. The annual Photography Exhibition was held in Sinclair Hall on “At Home Day” and prizes were awarded to the owners of the best prints. “—took pictures of a blonde model ” W . P . I R. Scharmann, R. Corey, G. Merrill, W. Jackson, D. Rosenthal H. Newell (Faculty), K. Benson, C. Berry The Radio Club at Tech is now in its thirtieth consecutive year of activity. Membership in the club consists not only of students registered in the Electrical Engineering Department, but also of stu¬ dents of every department. Because of the small number of licensed operators on the “Calling Card ” RADIO CLUB campus, the main purpose of the club has been centered on instructing “Hams-to-be” in sending and receiving code. As a result of these instructions, one more licensed operator has been added to the club and a few others are almost ready to take the government examinations. The headquarters of the club is still lo¬ cated in the Electrical Engineering build¬ ing. All the members, with the help of Professor Newell, have started a program for the modernization of the club’s appa¬ ratus. In addition to bringing the old equipment up to date, the club has nearly completed a new two hundred and fifty watt phone transmitter. The club members wish to extend to Pro¬ fessor Newell their appreciation of his willing help and invaluable technical advice. P E D 0 L E R 1127] F. Finlayson (Faculty), E. Sceggel, W. Stinson, T.

AERO CLUB The Aero Club was founded in 1928 simultaneously with the inauguration of the course in aeronautics by a group of the air-minded students. Kenneth G. Mer¬ riam, brought here at that time to serve as professor of Aeronautical Engineering, served as faculty adviser of the group, and has continued as such to the present day. This year the Aero Club has had one of its most successful seasons since its formation. The first meeting of the year was held a few days after the opening of college in September. Since then there have been regular monthly meetings at which Army and Navy Corps men have given interesting talks on their branches of aviation, and on what they thought was in store for future aviation. There were also a number of movies shown at the meetings and a series of instructive quizzes was presented. The club endeavored to direct meetings that would be of interest to the average student, whether he was a Mechanic, Elec¬ trical, Civil, Chemist, or Chemical Engi¬ neer. Additional interest in the club was created because of the Civil Aeronautics program. “—it all depends on the wind” 1128] W . P , I I B. Norton, J. Sugrue, P. Walker, H. Ferris, R. Dyer.

The Nautical Association is one of the youngest organizations on the Hill; it was founded in 1939 and, under the able guid¬ ance of its founders, has grown rapidly to take its place as one of the leading clubs on the campus. The Faculty Ad¬ viser for the club is Professor Brown who is himself an enthusiastic sailor. “—it all depends on the wind ” NAUTICAL ASSOCIATION The Association holds several meetings throughout the year at which discussions are carried on concerning the art of sail¬ ing. The club is unique on the Hill in that the members are promoted as they learn the rudiments of sailing and gain in experience and navigating ability. Though handicapped by the lack of boats and a suitable place to keep them the Association has participated in meets throughout the year. Each spring the members travel to New London to sail against the Coast Guard Academy, and in this way gain invaluable experience. Plans are being formulated by which the organi¬ zation will be aide to purchase equipment and use one of the local lakes for prac¬ ticing. The future of this youthful organi¬ zation looks very bright. [129] P E 0 D L E R R. Weiss, F. White, P. Swan (Faculty), G. Cohen. W. Graham, D. Coleman, E. Smith. DEBATING SOCIETY In the spring of 1938 a group of fresh¬ men and sophomores, students who had enjoyed debating in high school and missed it upon coming to Tech, founded the W.P.I. Debating Society. Knowing that time for this extra-curricular activity is strictly limited at an engineering col¬ lege, the founders made it the chief pur¬ pose of the society to provide opportuni¬ ties for practice in public speaking to all who desired it, rather than to make heavy demands on the time of a few varsity debaters. Although other debating ventures at Tech have lasted only a few months, the W.P.I.D.S. is still going strong after two years. More and more students are realiz¬ ing the tremendous importance of facile speech and are finding time to devote to the learning of the art of self-expression. This year the Society has engaged in eight varsity debates. It has also sched¬ uled three freshmen debates. Among the varsity opponents have been Rensselaer at Troy, Bowdoin at Brunswick, Fitchburg Teachers over radio station WTAG, and Carnegie Tech and Rhode Island in Worcester. [130] W.P.I 17. Kennedy, R. Shlora, F. Delany The Newman Club, organized in 1915 and named after Cardinal Newman, an outstanding figure in the Catholic Church in the nineteenth century, has one of the most impressive memberships on the hill. In 1917 the Newman Club became a mem¬ ber of the Federation of Catholic College NEWMAN CLUB Clubs, a privilege which it still enjoys. Its purpose is to aid Catholic students to be true to their religion and to further the high ideals of faith, loyalty, and morality. The program this year began with a Triduum held at the Immaculate Concep¬ tion Church during the first three days of the College year. Following this, regular monthly meetings held in Sanford Riley Hall were attended by a majority of the members and occasionally by interested members of the Federation from other col¬ leges. Throughout the year members of the clergy gave talks, and on April 30th the Club had the pleasure of listening to President Cluverius. The outstanding event of the year was the annual Communion Breakfast on March 17 which, this year, celebrated the twenty-fifth anniversary of the organiza¬ tion. PEDDLER 1131] i94E R. Parks, F.

COSMOPOLITAN CLUB The Cosmopolitan Club is a broadening influence in a college which, necessarily, must be rather specialized. Originally in¬ tended to enable foreign students to know and understand one another better, the club has, because of the scarcity of foreign students, admitted any student who wished to understand and discuss situations which arise in foreign lands. The value of these meetings is greatly increased by the fact that over a third of the members are of the faculty. Among the several meetings held this year was one held at the home of Professor Holt at which Professor Bosshard of Clark University spoke of his experiences in Germany and Switzerland just before the present war in Europe was declared. Another meeting was held at the home of Dean Howe at which the Housing Project of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Com¬ pany was discussed. At another time a very successful bridge party was held with the wives of the faculty. Unique among other clubs on the Hill, the Cosmopolitan Club found its finances in such a condition that it was decided to pay no dues this year. [132] W . P . I A. Winslow, K. Fraser, T. Graham (Faculty) The Skeptical Chymists are fully as ac¬ tive and as prominent as any club on the Hill. They have just completed their twenty-third year as a society for the pro¬ motion of engineering education. The pri¬ mary purpose of the society is to acquaint students with current advances and activi¬ ties in their field. At each meeting stu¬ dents prepare and present discussions based on recent developments in chemistry. SKEPTICAL CHYMISTS These talks are later opened to discussion by the body of the society. This develops poise and confidence in the speaker. Fac¬ ulty members and industrialists are also called upon to deliver papers on current topics. The society’s patron saint is Robert Boyle, a seventeenth century scientist. Boyle was the first to dismiss entirely the principles of alchemy and to apply philo¬ sophical reasoning to the subject of chem¬ istry. The Skeptical Chymists are affiliated with the Northeastern Section of the American Chemical Society. All students are privileged to attend the meetings of the larger organization. Frequent inspec¬ tion trips are held to give the students a true picture of how chemical industries operate. [133] PEDDLER E. Bates, K. Blaisdell, D. Lowd, R. Brand A. S. M. E. The student branch of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers is de¬ signed to extend the technical interest of students and to give them a knowledge of recent application of engineering princi¬ ples. During the past year, the ninety members of the society have had the privi¬ lege of listening to many interesting illus¬ trated lectures. To encourage students in the art of oral presentation the senior engineering society offered cash prizes totaling fifteen dollars to be awarded the three best undergraduate speakers. Eight contestants took part in this competition: Charles Hobel had for his subject, “Brass”; John Bentley, “A Dynamic Governor”; Ronald Brand, “Photoelasticity”; Walter Knight, “Jute Machinery”; Edward Hafey, “Power Met¬ allurgy”; John Townsend, “A Turben- gine”; William Christopher, “Effect of Technological Advances on Employment”; and Robert Hewey, “A Vest-Pocket Hy¬ [134] draulic Laboratory”. The judges selected the most interesting speaker to represent the Institute in competition with orators from student chapters throughout New England. By far the most important event of the year for the society was the New England Convention of student chapters held here in Worcester, at which fourteen colleges were represented. W . P . I R. Parks, If . Wiley, C. Sullivan, D. Bates The Student Chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers is primarily an organization designed to give its members an opportunity to hear and talk with prominent men in the field of civil engi¬ neering. This chapter was founded as a local society in 1903, and became affiliated with the national organization in 1921. A. S. C. E Andrew B. Holstrom was the speaker at the first meeting of the year. He spoke on the subject of Engineering in England and the European situation. At the second meeting, Dr. Arthur Willard French, Pro¬ fessor of Civil Engineering, spoke on “Forty Years with Tech Civils”. A special meeting was called in January to hear Dr. Alfred T. Fleming of the National Board of Fire Underwriters. His subject this year was “Building for Fire Safety”. The group met for the fourth time to hear speakers on the progress of the Geodetic Survey in Worcester. The season closed with the Student Con¬ ference which was held on April 26th. Students from all the New England engi¬ neering schools attended and enjoyed the field trips and the banquet held in San- ford-Riley Hall. [135] PEDDLER R. DeLisle, S. Potter H. Anderson, V. Siegfried (Faculty), R. Higgs A. I. E. E. The A.I.E.E., or the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, sponsors a stu¬ dent branch of their organization at Tech. The intention of this organization is to bring the students into contact with the engineering world. This is accomplished by addresses from prominent engineers at Student Branch meetings, and by inspec¬ tion trips. This association of sixty members held monthly meetings during the past school year. Many reputable speakers gave il¬ lustrated, interesting, and instructive ad¬ dresses on engineering and allied subjects. One of the feature meetings of the season was a joint gathering with the Worcester Senior section of the A.I.E.E. At this joint meeting, Professor Siegfried’s ad¬ dress and demonstration of the high volt¬ age impulse generator was presented. In February, an inspection of the War¬ ren Telechron factory was held. During this trip the details of the production of electric clocks were explained and ob¬ served. The Student Branch of the A.I.E.E. af¬ fords opportunities to all students inter¬ ested in Electrical Engineering to observe and come in contact with the electrical engineering world.

The Constitution of the organization states: “The Athletic Council shall have general charge of athletics at the Institute. It shall have power to dismiss from office any Captain or Manager under this Con¬ stitution. This Athletic Council shall dis¬ tribute the funds among the several ath¬ letic interests. In matters pertaining to the promotion and regulation of athletics this Council shall have full power, subject to Faculty restriction. In case of vacancy among the student members in the Athletic Council, the remaining members shall tem¬ porarily appoint another representative to serve until the election in the usual manner of a member to fill the vacancy.” Four student members are elected by the student body at the first student assembly in the fall. One other student is appoint¬ ed to the Council by the President of the Institute. The rest of the Council is made up of two Faculty and two Alumni mem¬ bers—and, by far the most important member of them all, the Chairman, “Doc” Carpenter. The Council meets three times a year to settle matters of policy and schedule, to decide upon the athletes who will be allowed to wear the Tech “’W”, and to Prexy and Doc talk it over W.P.I I elect a managerial staff for each sport for the following season. Each fall the Council gives a banquet in honor of those athletes who partici¬ pated in the fall sports. At this time the “W’s” are awarded and new captains are “Pete” COUNCIL elected for the following year . The guest speaker at the dinner last fall was Bruce Lancaster, former Tech gridiron assistant coach, later of the diplomatic corps in Japan, and of more recent date an author of “best sellers”.

Art Jackson, an¬ other husky blocking back, and veteran of another season’s campaign; Don Atkinson; Red Haran; Bob Allen; and Len Smith insured a supply of excellent reserves. In the line Elmer Scott, outstanding center and defensive star returned with Johnny Peters and A1 Bellos, towering wingmen, and George “O’Brien” Andre- opoulos, a running guard, more anxious than ever to better their last year’s per¬ formance. Bob Lotz and Gus Saarnijoki, two 190-pound tackles took over the posi¬ tions vacated through graduation, while Bill Grabowski fitted in as running mate to Andreopulos.

These results give little hint of the real power of the 1939 Tech Football Team. The scores, while coming closer to the truth, little indicate the number of heart¬ breaking setbacks experienced inside the opponents’ 15 yard line. Total point score, Worcester 44—Opponents 38. Nine varsity lettermen and more than a dozen other players who had tasted action in last season’s undefeated campaign re¬ ported to Coach Pete Bigler and Jack Dowd for pre-season practice. Scamper¬ ing Frank Gustafson returned to captain the 1939 array from his position at wing- hack. Other varsity backfieldmen to re¬ turn were: Ray Forkey, who added signal calling to his duties as a triple threat hack; Carl Fritch, speedy track man who shared W . P . I Saarnijoki, while Les Bolton relieved “Scotty” at center. For reserve guards Boh Wilson and Carl Kokins both had the necessary experience. With the advent of the class of ’43 many new men joined the squad. Among the most promising were: A1 Tenny, Marble¬ head High backfield star who ably re¬ placed Ray Forkey in the Rensselaer game; Bill Allen, rangy end from West Hartford; Bill Reinecke, ace pass-snatch¬ er of the Freshman crop; Bob Montgom¬ ery, an aggressive center from Ayer; and Bob Henckle, a guard from Scotia, New York. The United States Coast Guard Academy furnished the opposition in the Boynton- Hillers opener at New London. A blocked kick nearly paved the way for a Coast Guard touchdown in the first quarter, but the middies tossed the ball away reaching the twenty yard line. Tech took the ball in the second quarter and marched to the ten-yard line, only to be foiled on the verge of a score. In the third quarter a favorable wind and Forkey’s booming punts forced the Coast Guardmen back to their goal line. Captain Gustafson started the ball rolling with a neat 18-yard run- back on a punt, placing the ball on the Coast Guard 42-yard line. On the next play Blazin’ Ben Lambert crashed over the left side of the line, shook off three successive tacklers, and following excel¬ lent blocking raced the remaining distance for a touchdown. Tech dominated the play, but failed to score for the rest of the half. This 6-0 win marked the tenth straight victory for the team, undefeated since October 23, 1937. Final score: Tech, 6—Coast Guard, 0. At Hartford the following Saturday, Tech faced a rugged, determined Trinity College team. The engineers, brimming with overconfidence, shot their bolt in the first part of the game. The ball seesawed the length of the field in the first quarter. In the second quarter a series of long passes to Atkinson and Bellos, and line bucking by Fritch, brought the pigskin to the Trinity 12-yard line. A Forkey pass to Gustafson in the end zone was ruled incomplete because a linesman crossed the line of scrimmage. Discouraged by the Out of the Danger Zone [ 143 ] PEDDLER Capt. “Gussie ” setback, Tech lost the ball. Trinity now broke loose its devastating running attack which led to a score in the closing min¬ utes of the half. Starting where they left off in the first half, the Hartford array capitalized on a Tech fumble, and scored a placement from the ten-yard stripe. Six plays later an intercepted pass paved the way for their final score. Tech took to the air in an attempt to score. Trinity matched the Forkey heaves with an eagle- eyed seven man pass defense. Atkinson and Flitch alternated on the receiving end, bringing the ball to the 13. Blazin’ Ben carried for five more. Again the ball came to Lambert. Expecting a run Trin¬ ity closed in, but the hall sailed high in the air into the hands of Rangy Ray For¬ key in the end zone. Forkey kicked the extra point. Final score: Tech, 7—Trin¬ ity, 17. Stung by their first taste of defeat in almost two years, the engineers set out to redeem themselves at the expense of Nor¬ wich University. The cadets came to Alumni Field with an undefeated record and were rated among the more powerful small New England elevens. In the first quarter the entire Tech forward line of Bellos, Saarnijoki, Grabowski, Scott, An- dreopolous, Lotz, and Phelps chased a high 55-yard Forkey punt down to the Norwich tailback. At this crucial moment the back fumbled, and the ball bounded crazily off his chest. In the scramble the ball rolled into the end zone where Lotz pounced on it. Forkey converted with Gustafson hold¬ ing. The half ended with the ball in Tech’s possession on Norwich’s 6-yard stripe. The second score came after a series of passes were completed by Andre- opolous, Gustafson and Len Smith. On the fourth down Forkey placekicked a goal from the Norwich twenty. Norwich broke loose with several passes in an attempt to score. A pass to Adams netted 20 yards. When they tried another, Bob Lotz snatched the ball, pushed away several tacklers, and ran 46 yards for the final score. Forkey again converted. Final score: Tech, 17—Norwich, 0. The second play of the game nearly broke the hearts of one of the largest home¬ coming crowds to witness a Tech-Mass. State game. Tech’s oldest rival chose to receive, and carried the pigskin to the 40 on the kickoff. On the next play Allen took the ball through tackle, and behind perfect four-man interference, raced 60 yards for the only touchdown of the game. The extra point was placekicked high over the center of the goal posts. For the re¬ mainder of the half the ball never pierced either 20-yard line. In the second half Tech hammered inside the Mass. State 20 three times to no avail. Statistics credit Tech with the advantage except in scoring. Final score: Tech, 0—Mass. State, 7. The game Tech played with the Rhode Island Rams proved to he most exciting of the season, if not the most gratifying. Tech opened up a powerful offensive in the first quarter which netted seven points. [ 144 ] W . P Rhode Island kicked off, and in the first few minutes the game resolved into a kick¬ ing duel. Keaney tried smashing through the line with good success in several tries. Then Bob Lotz and “Scotty” hit him so hard that he fumbled, and Fritch recov¬ ered. Lambert and Gustafson each gained 15 yards around end. Fritch smashed through for another first down on the Rhode Island 15-yard marker. Then fol¬ lowing a fifteen yard penalty against Tech, Forkey faded to the 40 and heaved a pass to “Gussie” who squirmed to the two. Ray ploughed over center for the remaining distance and then kicked the extra point. For the rest of the quarter the Keaneymen dominated the play. “Iron Duke” Abbruzzi and Keaney staged a march upfield which took the ball to Tech’s 28. Here Abbruzzi faked an end run, and dropped a pass to his right end who carried over to even up the score. The game remained fairly even in the second half until the final quarter when magnificent defensive play by Scott, and long runs by Atkinson and Lambert brought the ball to the Rhode Island 5- yard line. In the waning moments Forkey elected to kick, but the pigskin flew several feet to the side of the uprights as a gust of wind sprung up. Final score: Tech, 7—Rhode Island State, 7. The injury-ridden Crimson and Gray played their season’s finale against Rens¬ selaer Polytech at Troy, New York. In an uphill battle Tech failed by seconds to get a final score and win the game. In the second quarter the Trojans pushed down the field from the eight yard line to the Tech eleven. Here a penalty was called against Tech, putting the ball on the one-yard line. Shako carried over for the first score. Late in the third quar¬ ter Tech pushed from their 31-yard line to Rensselaer’s 24, where Blazin’ Ben smashed over left tackle for the score that tied the game. Once more in that half Tech pushed down to the six yard stripe, but the gun boomed before the Biglermen could push it over. Substitutes Don Atkin¬ son, A1 Tenny, and “Pete” Wilson ably filled the places of the veterans Forkey, Fritch, and Saarnijoki, injured in the first half. Final score: Tech, 7—Rensselaer, 7.

Mainstays of the team were co-captains Forkey and Shlora, Johnnie Wells, and A1 Bellos. “Long-John” Wells was the high scorer of the outfit with 272 markers to his credit. His sweeping overhead shots were deadly. Ray Forkey acted as the pivot man and set up many plays. His prowess was in long shots which often kept the team in the scoring col umn when the action slowed down. Ray Shlora’s guard-work and ability to retrieve the ball off the backboard, labelled him as one of the best guards in New England. A1 Bel¬ los was the spark-plug of the team; always causing plenty of trouble for the opposing team by breaking up their scoring threats and making solo dashes to score many valuable points. A new-comer to the team was freshman Bill Reinecke who teamed up with A1 Bellos at forward. Later, Bob Lotz was pressed into service as a valued team-mate of Ray Shlora in guarding the opponents.

Lourteen wins out of a possible eighteen placed Tech in sixth place in All-New England College rating, while their record of 1,002 points against 815 for their opponents showed how well they deserved that top place. Two games this year will long be re¬ membered by local basketball fans. Both were real upsets, hotly contested from whistle to gun, and the teams showed some of the best basketball played in New Eng¬ land this season. Tech pinned on Con¬ necticut University its first defeat in five starts and, four days later, turned back W . P . I The Engineers got off to a slow start in their opener and were upset by a flashy team from Bates College, 26-40. All local supporters were worried about the abili¬ ties of this year’s five after their heavy loss through graduation, and at the end of this game, rumors spread that the sea¬ son would be a very uninteresting one; that Tech would come out on the short end in too many contests. But in the next contest, with the return of Johnnie Wells, the Tech five seemed to gain ability as well as hope, and succeed¬ ed in drubbing a bewildered Fitchburg team to the tune of 60-32 in the Alumni Gymnasium. Wells, Shlora, and Bellos scored freely to build up this one-sided score. Journeying to Springfield, the Crimson and Gray combine suffered their second loss. Although the play was rather close in the first half, the Gymnasts capitalized on our loss of Shlora and Wells to soar away in the final stanza to a 66-47 victory. To avenge this defeat, and bring their average to the .500 mark, Tech handed one of their local antagonists, Assumption College, a stinging defeat by a score of 60-29. In this game local rooters had an opportunity to see some of the reserves in action which gave an indication of the extra man power of the Institute’s quin¬ tet. In this encounter, Wells set the pace with his total of 25 points. The following Saturday, a powerful Boston University team arrived in the lo¬ cal gym but were forced to yield after a fast and exciting engagement. At the final gun, the score board read: Tech 57, B. U. 48. Although Wells carried three fouls most of the game, he managed to score 16 points as did Forkey and Bellos. Trinity was next invaded at Hartford, Conn., and felt the heavy hand of the Engineers when they brought home a 67-46 victory. The Worcester team started off slowly but steadily increased its lead to the final status. An important cog in this scoring machine was Frannie Oneglia, one of the best ball-handlers on the team; his shooting eye is the envy of many an aspir¬ ing player. Tech played host next to St. Anselms from Manchester, N. H. The visitors got Long John sinks another 1147 ] PEDDLER 1945 Two More for Tech off to a quick start and enjoyed a short¬ lived lead of eight points. The fray re¬ mained very close right up to the last quarter. Tanona, of the visitors, kept his team well in the running by some beau¬ tiful long shots. With the fourth red light on the score board shining, the visitors tired and dropped back until the score finally read 60-46. Forkey was the big gun for the crimson with 19 points while Wells was four markers behind. Following mid-term recess, P. I.’s five iron-men showed their wares in New York at the expense of Pratt Institute and Stevens Institute. Despite Capt. Miller’s brilliant play for Pratt, the visitors took ihe laurels by winning 68-55. The fol¬ lowing night, Tech gave their supporting alumni a chance to see them in action al¬ though the play was necessarily slow be¬ cause of the closer guarding practiced in that section. Final record: Tech 34, Stevens 27. Travelling to Coast Guard in the midst of a snowstorm, the Worcester array plowed their way through all opposition and returned homeward with the olive [ 148 ] branch. Wells did his bit with 27 points to bring the invaders to 60 while the Coast Guard copped 41. Displaying as tight a defense as any¬ one would ever hope to witness, the Boyn¬ ton Hillers blanked Providence for the first 16 minutes. The hard-luck Friars never did attain their stride and suffered a 64-23 defeat. Tech confidently visited Mass. Slate but had trouble keeping up with the Staters in the first half. After a rest and a spirited pep-talk, they returned to the fray and surged to a dashing climax resulting in a 64-43 victory. Northeastern and Worcester Tech were the players and Boston the stage in the next contest. The Huskies carried the bur¬ den of a ten-point handicap from near the beginning of the game, but put on a last period drive to finish still ten points behind Tech’s score of 56 points. Now enjoying a ten game winning streak, Worcester ran up against their arch-rivals, Clark University, who were sporting an eleven game victory march. Alumni gym was packed to capacity with excited supporters of both teams. Tech tried to keep the play at a fast pace but Clark’s tight defense heckled the Engi¬ neers so that they lost their shooting eye. In the meantime, Clark took advantage of many free tries to bolster their score and finally won the heartbreaker, 44-40. Brooding from their recent defeat, Tech journeyed to Medford to engage Tufts where they were a sorry lot and proved easy victims of the Jumbos, 54-36. Wor¬ cester lacked all co-ordination and just had to make the best of it. Facing almost certain defeat at the hands of a highly respected Conn. University out¬ fit, the locals seemed to be more at home in this fast sort of play and for the first quarter Ray Forkey stove off disaster by matching point for point with his sizzling long shots which swished through the net W . P . I to the merry delight of all fans. Soon the entire team rose to the occasion to turn the contest into one of the most thrilling ever. The lead see-sawed back and forth till at the gun a spell-bound and worn-out crowd enjoyed again the feeling of victory as Tech won 63-60. Four days later, activity in the gym reached its climax as Rhode Island entered its portals. This highly touted team was the most talked of combine in the country and had the nation’s leading scorer, Stutz Modzelewski as one of its stars. From the start, the contest struck a fast pace which never slackened. Tech was accus¬ tomed to a long passing game and was able to register despite Keaney’s good guarding. The scoring was so rapid that at half time Tech enjoyed a four point lead of 37-33. The play remained even until near the end of the game. Tech drew away with a 12 point lead which they were unable to entirely protect as the game ended with a final recording of 81-73. The frenzied crowd of 1800 people shouted themselves hoarse by the end of the game but felt that the cause was worth while. In this game Modzelewski scored 26 points thereby creating a new National scoring record. The final game of the basketball sched¬ ule was played in Worcester against Rens¬ selaer Polytech. It was a comparatively dull game as there was not much incentive to win. Tech had an easy time in scoring a 59-42 victory to close a highly successful season of many upsets and thrilling spec¬ tacles. The prospects for next year should be rather good although the services of Ray Shlora, Ray For key, and Ben Lambert will be missed. Team at Brooklyn backed by N. Y. Alumni [ 149 ] PEDDLER R.

BASEBALL Captain — Benjamin Lambert Manager — Robert Higgs Coach —Ivan Bigler The 1939 crew of baseballers closed Tech’s successful athletic season with a record of seven wins in ten tries, losing only to Mass. State, American Interna¬ tional, and the Rhode Island Rams. Under the leadership of Captain Ray Forkey, the Techmen walloped Coast Guard Academy in the season opener 8-3. The masterful pitching of A1 Raslavsky gave Tech the edge in their next game against Boston University as they smashed out a 3-1 victory. The engineers got off to a slow start in their third game against Northeastern and they were threatened in the fifth. Ben Lambert, replacing A1 Ras¬ lavsky in the pitching duties with three men on base, proceeded to strike out three men in a row putting the game on ice. Final score: Tech 15—Northeastern 7. In the next game the Scarlets from Clark LIniversity smashed themselves to a 4-1 lead in the third. At this point Lam¬ bert relieved Driscoll and allowed few hits for the remainder of the game, while his teammates smashed the ball around to win 14-7. Tech ' s first defeat was at the hands of Mass. State to the tune of 6-0. Twyble, State pitcher, allowed only five scattered hits, while Lambert allowed nine hits. In the next game Tech rebounded behind A1 Raslavsky to edge out Trinity College 3-2. In their second meeting with Clark, Raslavsky and Lambert repeated an earlier performance to the score of 8-4 in favor of Tech. In the next two games, the team playing went into a slump. The Aces from American International used up three Tech pitchers and won 18-7. Rhode Island State smashed out hits consistently against A1 Raslavsky, and allowed only four against “Duke” Abbruzzi, their mainstay, to win 7-0, Tech’s second shut¬ out of the year. In their final game Tech romped through Assumption behind the carefree pitching of Ben Lambert. Bigler’s [ 150 ] W . P . I boys jumped into an early lead, lost it, and then regained and held it for the remainder of the game. Assumption, nev¬ er a serious threat, has yet to beat the Engineers on the baseball diamond. Final score: 14-5. Nine veterans of previous campaigns reported to Coach Pete Bigler in the first baseball turnout for 1940. To nullify the loss of A1 Raslavsky, Captain-elect Bod- reau, Jack Rushton, and several other standouts from last year’s nine, four fresh¬ men, Landers, Lipovsky, Aubertin, and Reinecke, and two graduates from the interfraternity league, Sargent and Oneg- lia bolstered the veterans to form the complete squad. Captain Lambert, Lib¬ erty, and Landers handled the pitching duties, while Gustafson and Sargent com¬ pleted the batterymen. Ray Forkey han¬ dled first base, Kingsley second, and Oneglia third, while Norm Kerr relieved Atkinson at shortstop. In the field, Bill Carroll and Reinecke relieved Aubertin, Ed Lipovsky, and Frank McNamara. Tech’s first two scheduled games, with Assumption College, and Norwich were postponed due to inclement weather. On their first try the Boynton-Hillers jour¬ neyed to Springfield and used three pitch¬ ers in trying to stem the Aces tide. The American Internationals came through as decisively as they had in the previous year to win 16-3. Almost invariably a slow starter, it is expected that the Engineers will show their true strength in the ensuing ten games. Bill Carroll, Ed Lipovsky, Vernon Liber¬ ty, and Harry Kingsley showed real hit¬ ting strength in the opener, and it is ex¬ pected that the others will soon get into the swing. Frank McNamara and Norm Kerr, heavy hitters on the ’39 team have yet to develop the fine points they dis¬ played last year. Other games on the schedule include Trinity College, Clark University, Rhode Island State, and Pratt Institute, all at Alumni Field; Mass. State at Amherst; Boston University, and Northeastern at Boston; and Clark again, at Clark Field. R. Newton {Manager), A. Jones, A. Rothwell, H. Paige, E. Higginbottom {Coach). C. Hoebel, N.

SOCCER Captain — Ken Fraser Coach — Prof. Edwin Higginbottom Manager — Robert Newton With last year’s undefeated season as its goal, this year’s soccer squad set out with grim determination to cut a high mark in Tech’s soccer history. Although the boys failed in their efforts to chalk up a second undefeated season, they did run up the consecutive victory total to eleven before they cracked head-on into the also unde¬ feated R.P.I. Trojans for the last game of the season. The first game against the Coast Guard Academy was an easy victory for Tech, as the Academy put the first soccer team in its history on the field. Although the sailors put up a battle, they were not equal to Tech’s experienced veterans. In the first quarter Ken Blaisdell and Danny von Bremen each fired a goal between the Guardsmen’s uprights, and von Bremen re¬ peated in the second. In the third quarter Blaisdell finished the scoring for the day by slamming two more hard goals past the opponent’s gatekeeper. Tech’s reserves took over in the fourth quarter and held the game on ice until the final whistle. Score: Tech 5, Coast Guard 0. Tougher competition was found the next week-end at Trinity. The ball was kept in Trinity territory for most of the first three periods. A corner kick by Ken¬ nedy was headed in by Blaisdell in the first quarter, but Trinity came back for a brief period in the second and slipped one by Paige to tie the score at one all. How¬ ever, Blaisdell and Norm Wilson put on the pressure to net a goal apiece and the half ended at 3-1 for Tech. Although Wil¬ son repeated in the third the tide began to swing. Trinity swarmed all over the field, netting one, and, but for the out¬ standing defense work of Captain Fraser and Bill Bosyk, would probably have scored several more. In a final drive made by Tech in the last few minutes, Blaisdell pushed in another tally. [ 152 ] W . P . I Score: Tech 5, Trinity 2. Higgie’s men surged on to blank Con¬ necticut University for the ninth straight win. Very fine defense work kept the Con¬ necticut team from our door, while Blais- dell scored two goals in the first half and one more in the last. Also a pass by A1 Rothwell set up Norm Wilson for a fourth marker. One of the goals made by Blais- dell in the first half was a free boot from the thirty-yard line—a great kick in any league. Score: Tech 4, U. of C. 0. Tech captured the “City Title” the next week by blanking Clark. A high wind put the team on the defense for two quar¬ ters, and the defense wall kept out all invaders. The other two quarters Tech’s offensive went into action and Blaisdell, Wilson, and Kennedy each scored once. Score: Tech 3, Clark 0. Tuft’s smooth running team gave Tech some very bad moments in the hard- fought, scoreless first three quarters. Both teams appeared to be evenly matched with the strong defenses successfully repulsing all attacks. However, in the last period Tech put on added pressure. Blaisdell scored a free kick and von Bremen slammed in a tally in the last moments of the game. Score: Tech 2, Tufts 0. Two undefeated teams met for the last game of the season. R.P.I. proved to be the stronger. Rensselaer’s classy team scored in both the first and second quar¬ ters. Although the Techmen made many strong bids throughout the game, they were unable to get through the Trojan de¬ fense. The game was a heartbreaker in that it spoiled a record of two undefeated seasons, after Tech had piled up a record of eleven straight wins. Score: R.P.I. 2, Tech 0. A successful season by a team we are all proud of—successful through the fine teamwork of the entire squad. Fancy Footwork [ 153 ] PEDDLER D. Lowd (Manager), W. Kennedy, D. Officer, W-. Jackson, J.

But a star does not make a team, and Will had lots of support in gathering other first places from his teammate Harry Stirling, one of the real mainstays of the team. Along with Stirling should be men¬ tioned such consistent point-getters as Clark Goodchild, Fred Chamberlin, Ray Wyncoop, Walt Kennedy, and John Ing¬ ham. They and the other members of the squad showed their strong spirit early in the season when they recovered from the defeats which they received from Williams, Amherst, and Massachusetts State. At Williams the Tech team suffered from in¬ experience. Captain Riddick took his usual first places in the 50 and 100-yard free style events, and Stirling captured a close second in the 440-yard free style. The meet at Amherst was about the same except that Kennedy, Ingham, and Good- child made better showings against their [ 154 ] SWIMMING Captain —W. J. Riddick Manager — J. Dean Lowd Ccach — Frank Grant This year’s swimming team, led by Wil¬ lard Riddick, Harry Stirling, and Clark Goodchild, finished one of the best tank seasons of Tech’s history by dunking the last six of their nine opponents, and chalk¬ ing up more broken records than any other swim squad at the Institute. After many years of discouragement, Coach Frank Grant found his winning combination this year and molded them into an outstand¬ ing team. Headliner of the whole team was record- smasher Willard Riddick, whose ability to cut seconds off his own and other’s records gave him the star spot of a team of excel¬ lent swimmers. A few of these records are: New England and college record in the 60-yard free style; New England Junior championship 100-yard; New Eng¬ land A.A.U. 50-yard; college records in W . P . I powerful rivals. The third out of town meet at Massachusetts State College saw a better organized Tech team. The Wesleyan meet, the first at Worces¬ ter, was the most thrilling one of the sea¬ son. This contest proved to be the turn¬ ing point. Tech got off to a good start by winning the very important 300 medley relay. Riddick and Stirling then captured first and third places respectively in the 200-yard free style. Goodchild, Chamber¬ lin, Hopkins, Paige, Shippee, and Wyn- coop battled hard for the precious second and third places. Kennedy and Ingham took first and second places in the dive. When the meet was nearly over, the score stood so close that the winner of the 400- yard free style relay would win the meet. Coach Grant put Riddick in as anchor man although he had been in two long races previously. This relay is now historical. Chamberlin, Paige, and Wyncoop strug¬ gled valiantly against the powerful Wes¬ leyan speed artists to hold the Wesleyan lead down to half a pool length. When Riddick, tired from his other races, slapped the water, it was doubtful if he could even hold his own. He soon dis¬ pelled these fears, and even went farther— he won the event! The next five meets against the Coast Guard, Boston University, Trinity, Con¬ necticut University, and M.I.T., were won easily. Goodchild at last whipped him¬ self into top form and won most of the breast stroke grinds. Stirling consistently made the best showings in his endurance races. Ingham and Kennedy continued their skillful work at the springboard. Crandall, Wyncoop, and Paige made their much needed points without trouble. Ship¬ pee also turned in his best time during these meets. In the Boston University meet, a false start occurred and the swimmers had to return to their places at the edge of the pool. Riddick was the last to climb up and had just stood up on the side of the pool when the starter’s pistol went off. Surprised, Will stood staring at his oppo¬ nents swimming off without him. He soon recovered, plunged into the water, and, after a nice bit of foam-raising, overcame their lead and won the event. Out for another record [ 156 ] G. Bingham (Manager), A.

TRACK The Track Team got off to a good start on its 1940 spring schedule by defeating Trinity 78-48, but did not do so well in its two winter meets, capturing third place in both the three-cornered meet at Mass. State and the five-way Connecticut Valley competition. From what we have seen so far, the Track Team will show great strength in its future meets. Although it has a tough schedule ahead, the team has had a chance to get into good condition, under the tu¬ telage of Coach Johnstone. The meets scheduled for the rest of this year are: Connecticut University, Boston University, the E.I.A.A. meet, and the N.E.I.A.A. meet. Although the team has lost a few good men, it has a good set of veterans in Fritch and Naboichek, sprinters; Bob Wilson, distance runner; Don Smith and Willie Ames, hurdlers and broad jumpers; Wackerbarth, high jumper; and Lotz, weight man. Then, too, the team has been replenished by several promising Fresh¬ men, such as Dave Nye, A1 Tenny, Bob Burns, and Bob Green. They’re off i —to a long grind Tech’s Cross Country team finished a good year by winning four out of six meets. This year’s squad was composed mostly of men of the class of ’43 but a few of the old mainstays remained. The season started off with a bang Octo¬ ber 7, when Tech went down to the Coast Guard Academy to win by a score of 24-33. On October 14 another triumph was claimed at Hartford, Connecticut where a good Trinity squad was beaten 27-29. Tech experienced its first defeat of the year on their home field October 19, when a strong Connecticut State team succeeded in winning 15-46. Victory was again ours on October 28th when a revived team beat Mass. State 26-30. On November 4, Tech’s team went down to Riverside, Mass., and lost to Boston University by a 23-32 score. The triumphal climax of the season came on November 11, when Tech Harriers again went abroad, this time to R.P.I. to win in a close heat, 28-29. Tech’s three high men for the Freshman class were D. Nye, A. Burns, and N. Drawbridge, while Bob Dunklee had an excellent final season for his running career. CROSS COUNTRY O. Johnstone (Coach), W. Wheeler, R. King, D. Bates (Manager). J. Fernane, G.

RELAY The past relay season can be regarded as one of the most successful at Tech in many a year. This year’s team was held to be the fast¬ est to pound the boards at Tech for some time. It was built around the veterans Fritch and Naboichek with newcomers to the ranks being Grant, Ekstrom, Green, and King. In their first appearance of the season at the K. of C. meet in the Boston Garden, the combination of Green, King, Naboi¬ chek, and Fritch, finished close behind B.U. and ran ahead of Wesleyan and Mass. State with the winning time for the event being 3:35.2. Two weeks later, at the B.A.A. meet, again at the Boston Garden, a revamped team having Fritch, lead-oiT, Grand, sec¬ ond, Green, third, and Naboichek, anchor, defeated U. of Conn., Colby, and Mass. State in the most exciting race of the eve¬ ning. There was great reason for rejoic¬ ing over this particular victory, since it was the first that Tech has won at a B.A.A. meet in several years. With the loss of only one member of the squad, Carl Fritch, the outlook for the “41” season is particularly bright. Passing the baton [ 158 ] 65- W . P . I the team for the past three years and this will be Bob Dunldee’s third season. Soph¬ omore candidate Bob Angevine shows good form, and Mort Barnes and Ted Ait- ken are two able Freshmen who will help fill the vacancy left by Joe Filipek. An unusually late winter proved a seri¬ ous handicap for the team, as well as the loss of four clay courts due to the new auditorium. Professor Higginbottom’s efficient and intelligent coaching has already produced a considerable amount of favorable com¬ ment. His stroking practice sessions in the gym, which are something new for the team, are intended to correct bad playing habits. Coach Higginbottom has even re¬ quired a radical change in grip for most of the players. We feel that the beneficial results of these changes will be much more evident in future teams, although present team members boast of a steadier and more forceful game. TENNIS R. Angevine, T.

GOLF Though winning only two of its eight games, the 1939 Tech Golf Team can boast that they put up a good battle at all inter¬ collegiate meets. Keen competitive spirit and good sportsmanship were prevalent in all the tournaments. Tech started off the season by winning from Norwich University at the Worcester Country Club 5 to 1. Again playing on their home course, the golfers were beaten by Boston College, while at M.I.T. they went down on the short end of a 2 to 31 2 score. Trouble continued to reign when the club swingers went to Tufts and lost 0 to 6. Trinity took the next match 11 2 to 41 2 , while the tournament with Amherst resulted in a 3 to 3 tie. On their trip to Brown, victory again blessed the Tech men 41 2 to iy 2 , hut the end of the season was marked with a 2 to 4 defeat at the hands of Rhode Island State linksmen. This season, hopes are high, for only two men were lost through graduation and many of the undergraduates seem to be in top form. 250 yards—? 1160] - W . P . I I Formidable Foes The marksmen of the Rifle Team con¬ cluded a very active season with three wins out of sixteen matches. The team partici¬ pated in the New England College Rifle League matches, and shot against some of the best rifle teams in the East. In the league standing Tech finished up in tenth place with a percentage of .182. The high spots of the season were the victories over R.P.I. and Northeastern Uni¬ versity. The scores in both of these matches were so close that throughout the contests the outcome was uncertain until the last shot was fired. High scoring hon¬ ors for the season go to Captain Charles Parker and Fred White, whose top-notch shooting bolstered up many scores. Con¬ sistently good scores were turned in by Fred Merriam, Ralph Whitmore, and Chandler Walker. The team is looking forward to a very good season next year, as Fred White will be the one man lost by graduation, and there are five letter men with which to form a nucleus for a team in 1941.

BASKETBALL The Junior Varsity basketballers fin¬ ished a very fine season this year, playing twelve games of which seven were vic¬ tories. The J.V.’s won their first two games by a large margin, believing that it pays to get off to a good start. Worcester Trade School was the first team to take defeat, 40-23, and the Fitchburg junior varsity the second, by a 49-22 score. The J.V.’s experienced a slight setback when the Springfield team triumphed, 52-48, in a fast, close, well-played contest. In the four games that followed, the team won two of them; winning from Assumption High, 33-27, and Boston University, 30-24, and losing the others to Trinity, 41-29, and St. John’s High School, 35-28. In a stirring comeback, tbe J.V.’s hand¬ ed South High a trimming, 33-22, in one of the best games of the season, and then easily defeated Clark University by 40-28. After this, the team bowed to Worcester Academy, 45-37, and Commer ce High School, 30-27.

In the following two contests with Worcester Academy, one held in Fuller Pool and the other in the Academy tank, the Tech Freshmen met defeat at the hands of a powerful and well-balanced opponent by the scores of 56 to 10 and 51 to 15. The Freshmen displayed an abundance of spir¬ it and fight in the final meet, but were vanquished by the Sophomores 47 to 28. The high scorer for the Freshmen was John Carney, a Worcester student. Those who won numerals in the meet with the Sophs were Donald Russell, Howard Au¬ bertin and John Carney. Other members of the team Were: George Fairhurst, Clif¬ ford Moller, Carl Hartbower, Allen Coe, Carl Giese, Edwin Campbell and Edward Nelson.
