Welcome to 


"A free allowance of pocket money leads a student 
into many snares, and greatly interferes with his 
progress in study. The money for minors should 
generally be deposited with some citizen or member 
of the Faculty, who will act as guardian and render 
semi-annual accounts; charging five per cent com- 
mission on the amount expended." 

We hasten to point out that the above quote from the 
University catalogue of 18 52 is no longer carried in the bulle- 
tins issued to entering Freshmen. 

In this open season on advice to Freshmen there are sev- 
eral lessons we'd like to draw from this quotation. In the 
first place, too much spending money is still a snare — and 
incidentally, not only to Freshmen. While professors and citi- 
zens no longer serve as guardians of the student's exchequer, 
we would like to point out that on the Bucknell campus the 
student-teacher relationship can be just as close as in the days 
of 18 52 — if the student wills it. An alert faculty of almost 
150 men and women is ready to guide you; some are great 
teachers, some are specialists in research, some are outstandmg 
administrators, all are ready to help make the adjustment 
from high school to college. 

But how can I meet the problem of longer assignments, 
harder courses, more supplementary reading, etc., that one 
meets in college? In exactly the same way that you have 
learned to do the tasks which have become more difficult in 
every succeeding year of your life. Just as successful work 
in the eighth grade prepared you for successful work in ninth 
grade so successful work in high school has prepared you for 
college. You would not be coming to college if you thought 
that college work would be as easy and on the same level as 
high school work. College work is not enough harder than 
the work you have already done to worry you — provided 
you start at the beginning of the semester to do your best. 
Maybe you don't realize it, but you are about to enjoy 
four of the best years of your life. We welcome you to a 
college career marked with thrills, excitement, an occasional 
let-down, but above all, a chance to really prepare yourself 
for your life's work.

These five glimpses into the life of 
frosh men and women show the age- 
old process of becoming "oriented." 
If some of us old-timers cannot see 
ourselves in the pictures, remember the 
pattern changes — but the "basic con- 
cepts" remain the same.

The Internship Program of the National Institute 

of Public Affairs 

By Dr. C. Heeschel Jones 
Associate Professor of Political Science, BuckncU University 

Editor's Note — Dr. Jones. Associate Profes- 
sor of Political Science, prepared for his 
career at Ohio \\'eslej'an University, A.B. 
'35 : American University ; University of 
Wisconsin, Ph.D. '42. Before joining the 
Bucknell faculty in 1950 he served as an 
administrative analyst in the U. S. Depart- 
ment of Agriculture and as lecturer at 
American Universitj-. This experience pre- 
pared him for the writing of "The Intern- 
ship Program of the National Institute of 
Public Affairs" published in full in "Buck- 
nell University- Studies" \^ol. IV, No. 1 
(1953) of which the following article is a 

In college Dr. Jones became a member of 
Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity and the honor- 
ary societies of Omicron Delta Kappa and 
Delta Sigma Rho. The professional socie- 
ties in which he is active include the Ameri- 
can Society for Public Administration, 
American Political Science Association, So- 
ciety for Personnel Administration and 
American Academy of Political and Social 
Sciences. He spent thirty months in navy 
serv-ice during World War II. 

THE National Institute of Public 
-Affairs was established in Wash- 
ington D. C, in 1934, for the purpose 
of instituting a program which, it was 
hoped, would make effective use of the 
facilities of Washington to instill in 
the minds of talented young persons 
a lively interest in the public service. 
In its statement of objectives the 
Institute affirmed that its purpose was 
threefold : 

"Through the Internship program 
the Institute is endeavoring to in- 
crease the attention and devotion to 
public affairs of the youth of 
America, to help in the development 
of higher standarris and career op- 
portunities in governmental admin- 
istration and to add to the academic 
preparation for public service the 
experience of working with govern- 
ment officials holding positions of 

To l>e accepted for the training ];ro- 
gram of the Institute, each intern must 
have completed the work for the bac- 
calaureate degree in a college or uni- 
versity. This was a fundamental re- 
'luirement. .Accordingly, most of them 
came directly from liberal arts col-

leges without having had work experi- 

During the twelve programs of the 
Institute, beginning with that of 1936- 
37 and ending with that of 1947-48, 
four hundred sixty-five interns were 
enrolled. The interns who participat- 
ed in the Institute's training programs 
were selected from one hundred forty- 
six colleges and universities. From 
twelve of these institutions one hun- 
dred forty-one interns, or somewhat 
fewer than one-third of the total, were 
chosen. In this area of concentration 
no one institution consistently placed 
interns with the Institute throughout 
the twelve programs. From nineteen 
colleges and universities students were 
selected for six or more of the pro- 
grams, as follows: Minnesota, 11 
programs ; Smith, Stanford, Kansas, 
9 each ; Harvard, Occidental, Wes- 
leyan, 8 each; Dartmouth, Princeton, 
Colorado, Washington, 7 each ; Barn- 
ard, P>ennington, Bucknell, Miami, 
Radcliffe, Illinois, Wisconsin, Welles- 
ley, 6 each. 

In its efforts to select for its intern- 
ship program persons of outstanding 
intellectual ability, the Institute was 
preeminently successful. More than 
thirty-five per cent of those chosen 
were members of Phi Beta Kappa. 
Most of the others were in the upper 
ten per cent of their graduating class- 
es. The candidates selected for the 
first six programs, those from 1936 
to 1942, had perhaps slightly higlier 
academic standing than tho,se who 
participated in the later groups. How- 
ever, even during the war period when 
so many of the college graduates were 
being drawn off into military service, 
few of those api)ointed were not in 
the uijjjer one-third of their gradn.ii 
ing classes. 

Essential characteristics of the In- 
stitute's training program were the 
planned orientation, the work assign- 
ments, the group meetings, and the 
imiversity courses. A jjroiriinent 
characteristic of the ijrogram of llic 
Institute was a weekly ronnd-lalilc

conference known as the "Monday 
Evening Meeting." At the Monday 
evening meetings most of the interns 
were impressed with the opportunity 
to discuss current problems with out- 
standing personalities or with ad- 
ministrative officials. Generally, the 
interns' reactions indicated that they 
were not all agreed as to the value of 
these meetings. But as a group they 
found that the experience did much 
to enhance the value of their training. 
The staff of the Institute considered 
as one of the essential elements of 
the program of the Institute the op- 
portunity for interns to receive cor- 
related academic training. The uni- 
versity courses most often taken l)y 
interns were courses in public adminis- 
tration, statistics, and economics. 
Courses in social security, housing, 
labor and foreign relations were also 
popular with tiie interns. It is a fact 
])articularly worthy of attention tJiat 
approximately li fly-seven per cent of 
I he men ;ui(l fifty-three per cent of 
I he women who jiad participated in 
I be ])rograms entered and were si ill 
emi)loyed, as late as 1950, in some 
type of public service. Many of the 
others were pursuing full-time gradu- 
ate .study, and of these it appeared 
t h a t .some w o u 1 d eventually s e e k 
lareers in pul)lic-service work.

Alumni Weekend Tops Records 

WORKING on the premise that "there 
will be more and they'll be merrier at 
the 1953 reunions," the campus committee 
headed by Raymond K. Irwin '47, director of 
placement, and assisted by 13 live-wire re- 
union class chairmen and their helpers, pre- 
pared something in the nature of a five-ring 
circus. Plagued by the peremiial question, 
"how many shall we prepare for?" the plan- 
ners got small comfort from the lament of 
that super-planner from Harvard, Stephen 
H. Stackpole, when he said : 

"Alumni return in years quinquennial. 
But only God can tell how many'U." 

But there was really no need to worry and 
fret for the 1953 reunions proved again that 
the guys and gals will come back if plans are 
carefully made and notices are mailed in 
good time. The final tally showed that 
alumni registrations topped last year's rec- 
ord-breaking figure by a whacking 23%. 

But mere numbers cannot measure the suc- 
cess of Alumni Weekend ; the improved 
spirit and hilarity, many worthwhile forward 
steps in alumni organization undertaken at 
the reunions and business meetings of the 
General Alumni Association, tell the story 
of a new high in Bucknell preferred stock. 
True, some of the finest features of the 
weekend stemmed from a really sad event — 
the leave-taking of the Hildreth family from 
the Bucknell Campus. Surely the gracious- 
ness and friendliness of the Hildreths during 
the past four years has set an example of 
university living for students, faculty, alumni 
and administration alike. 

The vanguard of Alumni Association offi- 
cers and reunion chairmen arrived Friday, 
June 5. At a bufJet supper alumni workers 
had an opportunity to hear a firsthand report 
from President Kenneth Slifer '26 on alumni 
activities, from Alumni Fund Committee 
Chairman, John Worth 'i7 on the progress 
on the Bucknell Alumni Annual Giving Pro- 
gram, from John H. Shott '22, Alumni Sec- 
retary, on club and magazine program. Dur- 
ing the evening the Board of Directors of 
the General Alumni Association met at 
Alumni Headquarters to receive reports on 
the year's activities and discuss plans for 
next year's programs. 

One of the highlights of the Amiual As- 
sembly, the yearly business meeting of the 
General Alumni Association, was the rec- 
ord breaking attendance of seventy dele- 
gates representing twenty-two clubs. When 
it is remembered that our sixty-five clubs 
have the privilege of sending 241 delegates 
it will be seen that we are far from our goal 
in representative government. However, the 
group was much encouraged by receiving 
from the floor one nomination for member- 
ship on the Board of Directors. Happy will 
be the day when clubs will be prepared to 
nominate the full slate of alumni directors. 

The voting resulted in the election of five 
new members of the Board of Directors to 
serve for three years. They are Florence 
Brown Focht '26, Lewisburg; P. Herbert 
Watson 'i7, Norristown; Bruce J. Miller '27, 
New York ; Allen A. Rarig '29, Lewistown ; 
Donald L. Sholl '42, Haddonfield, N. J. The 
directors who completed terms of service 
were, Lester E. Lighton '20, Glenside ; I. H. 
Marantz '48, Huntington, N. Y. ; Roy E. 
Nicodemus '25, Danville ; Rita Holbrook 
Sear 'i7, Rochester; Arthur R. Yon '17, At- 
lantic City. 

Following the Annual Assembly the new 
Board of Directors met briefly and elected 
officers to serve for one year as follows : 
President, Emily Devine Kelly '21, New 
York ; First Vice President, Paul E. Fink 
'29, Montoursville ; Second Vice President, 
William S. Liming 'ii. East Williston, N. Y. 


Mrs. .losepli B. Kelly (Emily Devine '21), new 
president of the General Alumni Association. 

By now reunioners had covered a full sched- 
ule of Bison Club Breakfast, Phi Beta Kappa 
Breakfast and Annual Assembly and one 
would expect a slight letdown but this was 
only the beginning for now class reunion ses- 
sions ( for those classes whose numerals ended 
in "3" and "8") began business sessions of 
their own. The expression business session 
is used advisedly for there were many inter- 
ruptions as late arrivals greeted the early 
birds and filled in with gossip of the missing 
years. Each group was photographed and 
then in full regalia paraded back of the band 
to the luncheon in the Davis Gymnasium. 

Tlie luncheon itself — fried chicken and all 
the fixings — deserved a billing as a dinner 
and was a credit to Mrs. Esther B. Long 
'47, director of food service, and her staff 
and student assistants. The speaking pro- 
gram following the luncheon was short but 
filled with thrill after thrill as members of 
the University staff and alumni paid tribute 
to the contributions of the Hildreth family 
during their four-year stay on the campus. 
Opened by the induction of the Class of 1953 
into the Alumni Association by Buck Shott, 
alumni secretary, Abram Powelson, presi- 
dent of the class, then presented the class 
gift, (a sum of money for the Little Theater 
Fund) to the University. Special tribute 
was paid Dr. Hildreth by chairman of the 
board of trustees. Dr. Joseph W. Henderson 
'08, who told of first meeting the former gov- 
ernor of Maine and what his four years as 
president has meant to the University. Fol- 
lowed then a series of gifts : a brief case 
from the student body presented by senior 
class president, Abram Powelson ; a silver 
tray presented by Kenneth W. Slifer, retiring 
president of the General Alumni Association, 
from the alumni; and on the behalf of the 
faculty a silver bowl presented by Dr. P. 
Burwell Rogers, assistant professor of En- 
glish. In his presentation Dr. Rogers paid 
the Hildreths the following tribute : 

"Four summers ago there came to the 
campus of Bucknell University a down 
Mainer who had made a notable record for 
himself in his home state by serving two 
terms as its governor. During the past four 
years this down Mainer, with equal distinc- 
tion, has served Bucknell as its president. 
As results of his efforts the university now 
benefits from such tangibles as the Ellen 
Clarke Bertrand Library, the department of 
military science and tactics, grants in aid 
providing for research and study in several 
fields, and increases in faculty salaries. But 
of more intrinsic value are the intangibles 

that liave derived from his presence on this 
campus. His ceaseless elTorts have all been 
prompted by a single purpose — The good of 
Bucknell ; and his efforts in behalf of the 
University have been an inspiration. His 
determination and his decisiveness have been 
healthful influences throughout the Univer- 
sity, and his objective open-mindedness and 
far-sightedness have been no less beneficial. 
At the same time his affability, approacha- 
bleness, and unaffected simplicity of manner 
have been cherished by all. 

"We of the faculty have been keenly 
aware of the presence of President Hildreth 
on the Bucknell campus, and we have been 
no less aware of the presence of his gracious 
wife and of his charming family. Mrs. 
Hildreth's grace and charm will always be 
remembered by Bucknellians of this gener- 

But the greatest gift of all came from 
the president himself when he quietly an- 
nounced "Mrs. Hildreth and I would like to 
feel that we have served without compensa- 
tion at Bucknell." And explained that he 
was returning to Bucknell the entire salary 
paid him since he became president in 1949 
as an expression of the Hildreth family's 
devotion to the University. The audience 
was not prepared for an announcement of 
such magnitude and it was probably some 
hours before many realized the greatness 
of the gift the Hildreths made to the Univer- 
sity they have come to love so well. 

At the luncheon recognition also was given 
Mrs. Anna Kieffer Hay, who honored the 
University by her return to the campus to 
celebrate her 70th class reunion. The only 
member of the Class of 1883 who was able to 
attend the reunion, she presented a substantial 
gift to the Bucknell Alumni Fund to com- 
memorate the event. She was presented with 
an orchid by Kenneth W. Slifer on behalf of 
the Alumni Association. 

Following luncheon a wide choice of en- 
tertainment was offered the campus visitors. 
Of course, reunion classes hurried to their 
social headquarters set up for them in the 
women's dormitory houses and at several off 
campus spots. Here they indulged in more 
reminiscences, enjoyed light refreshments and 
believe it or not, spent most of their time 
planning for even bigger and better reunions 
five years hence. 

Non-reunioners in large numbers made 
their way to the Christy Mathieson Memorial 
Field where Sherm Doebler's Bucknell Alum- 
ni baseball team featuring former orange 
and blue varsity men from as far back as 
1935 engaged the current Bucknell varsity in 
a close battle that wound up with the Alum- 
ni nine on the short end of a 4-3 score. 

Favorite Book Exhibit 

THE Ellen Clarke Bertrand Library 
claimed the attention of many visi- 
tors. Here Mrs. Blanche Baughman, se- 
nior assistant librarian, under the super- 
vision of Librarian Harold W. Hayden, 
had prepared a series of exhibits including 
a display of student photography, student 
art works, photographs of Bucknell presi- 
dents, collected material about Bucknell's 
history and famous graduates, and favorite 
books of Bucknellians. The favorite book. 


exhibit, which has attracted nation-wide 
interest, consists of an exhibit of books 
held meaningful b\' distinguished Ameri- 
cans, together with letters explaining their 
choices. Selections include books chosen 
by President Eisenhower. Vice-President 
Xixon. Albert Einstein and over 40 other 
prominent Americans. While these en- 

Mr?. Blanche Baugliman. senior assistant libra- 
rian, sliowinj Jane A. Brown '53 the display of 
"favorite books'' selected by prominent Ameri- 

tertainment features were being enjoyed a 
small group was engaged in a business 
session. This group consisted of the 
presidents and reunion chairmen of the 
classes scheduled to hold regular five year 
reunions in June 1954, the classes whose 
class numerals end in "4" and "9". 

The Jamboree 

THE weatherman had promised a sun 
drenched weekend and kept his word 
except during the Jamboree — the only out- 
door event scheduled. But the heavy 
showers did not dampen the spirit of the 
hundreds of alumni, students, and parents 
who gathered in the gymnasium to see 
and hear a new kind of jamboree program. 
Dancing, of course, was provided by the 
Dan Hanna orchestra from Philadelphia, 
but the booths operated by student or- 
ganizations and the entertainment pro- 
vided by the student group headed by Ed 
Williams as master of ceremonies certain- 
ly was the feature of the evening. Not 
to be outdone in gift-making by the se- 
niors, the undergraduate classes presented 
a sum of money to President Hildrcth to 
be used by a Pakistan charity of his chos- 
insr and gave an orchid corsage to Mrs. 

And so hundreds of campus visitors 
closed a long, busy and eventful day with 
many of them staying over for the Com- 
mencement events scheduled for Sunday 
and Monday. Judging from the many fa- 
vorable commcnt.s received since Alumni 
Weekend it is evident that another large 
((roup of reunion classes are now con- 
vinced that the University, through care- 
ful planning and provision of dormitory 
rooms and baby sitting service, is deter- 
mined to provide for the kind of relaxing 
family vacation that can be thoroughly 
enjoyed by the whole family. In Jum- 
1954 another group of reunion classes 
(those class numerals end in "4" 
and "'J") will have an opportunity to thor 
oughly enjoy the ho.<ipilality of "the Hill 
S K I- T K ,M B F. R 10 .', 3 

Hildretlis Refund Four- Year Salary 

At the June meeting of the Board of Trustees the resignation of 
Horace .A. Hildreth as president was accepted to enable him to serve 
as United States Ambassador to Pakistan. 

The generosity and thoughtfulness of the Hildreths was well 
known to thousands of Bucknellians who have come to know and love 
the family but no one was prepared to appreciate the full impact of 
the altruistic action of Dr. Hildreth when he arose at the All-Alumni 
Luncheon and stated simply "Mrs. Hildreth and I would like to feel 
that we have served without compensation at Bucknell." An editorial 
in the SiDibury Daily Item following the announcement in commenting 
on the able and forceful Commencement speaker followed with this 

"There seems to be little doubt, however that the altruistic 
action of Dr. Horace A. Hildreth ... in returning to the school 
all of the salary paid him during the past four years had a 
stronger impact upon the graduates, and all friends of Bucknell, 
than any group of orators who might have been called to the 
Commencement platform. 

"In the first instance no American college or university could 
afford to pay a man of Dr. Hildreth's caliber his full worth. A 
man who has achieved outstanding success in a material sense, it 
now becomes apparent that he accepted the presidency of Bucknell 
as a labor of love. Turning back. to the school all of the compensa- 
tion he has received sealed a season of unselfish service that will 
always be classified as a contribution of inestimable worth to a 
great school. 

"And the humility and sincerity which marked this gesture 
explained the credo of Horace Hildreth and his reasons for ac- 
cepting a difficult assignment in the nation's diplomatic corps. If 
learning is caught rather than taught — and we believe that it is — 
Buckne'll's retiring president has given the Class of 1953 and all 
past and future Bucknellians a priceless example of how an effec- 
tive, well-rounded life makes the best come true."

By Harry L. Lawrence 
Head Football Coach 

A good defensive line and an untried 
offense might briefly describe the Buck- 
nell University grid picture for the coming 

Gone are three of the four Bison starting 
backs of the 1952 season — ^Touchdown 
Tvifins, Brad Myers and Burt Talmage, 
and Fullback Ed Adams, plus eight other 
varsity performers. 

But we're not hauling out the crying 
towel, at least not yet, for we have some 
sophomores who have the potential but 
lack the experience. And once the latter 
is gained, these boys may be the sparks 
to send the Herd on a stampede. 

Halfbacks Bob Sierer and Dick Mc- 
Cartney, Fullback Bob Ford and Quar- 
terbacks Ron Hendricks and Bill Hollister 
are the new backfield blood. Add them 
to such seasoned performers as Halfbacks 
Bobby Dee, Moe Finkelstein, George 
Klauder, and Owen Murnane, Fullbacks 
Jim Kozlowski and Vince Pugliese and 
Quarterbacks Ken Adamec and Tom 
O'Brien and the outlook improves. 

With the change to non-platoons, like 
everyone else we are confronted with de- 
veloping a line which will be sturdy de- 
fensively, yet also able to move on the 
offense. Here we are fortunate to have 
such standouts as Guards John Chironna 
and Bill Gray, Tackles Ron Lloyd and 
Jim Egloff, Ends Jack Flurer and Bob 
Antkowiak and Center Paul Ganz, plus 
these other able performers: Ken Tashjy, 
Jack Winebrenner, Ed Popek, guards, 
Marion Minker and Dick Richter, tackles. 
Dick Klaber and Bob Harbaugh, ends and 
Center Roy Gavert. 

Our schedule will be tough, including 
Holy Cross, Colgate and Temple among 
the roughest. Last year, we began the 
season on the wings of a 13-game winning 
streak. This year, we begin from scratch, 
not looking three weeks in advance to a 
tough foe, but taking every game as we 
come to it. 

We won't be undefeated, that's for sure, 
but our team will have spirit, drive and the 
desire to make amends for our three de- 
feats suffered in 1952.

J A 

Ostendarp, of Baltimore, Md., who has been 
named backfield coach for the coming: year, is 
well-known to recent Bucknell graduates for his 
football feats on the gridiron in 19i8 and 1949, 
when he was one of the East's leading ground 
gainers. Following his graduation, he played 
football for the New York Giants professional 
eleven - 

Bob Keegan '44, continues his fine work 
as a hurler for the hustling Chicago White 
Sox. As we go to press he has just evened 
his won-lost record at 3-3, after losing a 
pitchers' duel with Ned Garver in an eleven- 
inning contest that Detroit finally won 2-1. 


Hank Peters' varsity soccer team, which 
last season won only one contest, will be 
out to better itself this year when it meets 
seven colleges, including powerful Penn 
State and mighty Temple, two of the king 
pins of the intercollegiate soccer world. 

Hank won't say much except that he 
expects this year's team to show marked 
improvement over the 1952 hooters who 
were plagued by injuries and inexperience. 

The Schedule: Oct. 3, Penn State; 
Oct. 10, Temple at Philadelphia; Oct. 16, 
Delaware; Oct. 24, Drexel; Oct. 30, 
Gettysburg at Gettysburg; Nov. 7, West- 
ern Maryland at Westminster, Md. ; Nov. 
14, Franklin and Marshall. 

Brad Myers With Rams 

Brad Myers '53, rookie half-back with the 
Los Angeles Rams of the National Football 
League, made several substantial gains in 
their charity tilt with the Washington Red- 
skins. The Rams won 20-7 and have been 
unbeaten in pre-season play to press time. 


If you want to make certain of choice seats for the opener. Dad's Day and Homecom- 
ing, it is advisable to get your ticket order in early. 

Ticket Distribution — Contributors to Alumni and University Funds during the fiscal 
year that closed on June 30, 1953, will be given priority in filling ticket orders for Home- 

A special section on the fifty-yard line will be reserved for the class (of fifty members

Tickets will be sent by insured mail. 



With the Homecoming game scheduled 
for October 17. all planning for the big 
event must be advanced somewhat ahead 
of the usual schedule. Already a large 
committee of alumni, students, faculty and 
town residents are at work planning the 
program and making the arrangements to 
properly welcome and entertain visiting 
alumni, relatives and friends. 

And the early date will be a further 
guarantee of pleasant weather and ideal 
dri\-ing conditions. The campus and. in 
fact, all of Central Pennsylvania will dis- 
play all the charm of a glorious fall. What 
better time and place to meet and relax 
with good old Joe and Mary? Better drop 
them a line right now and arrange for a 
campus reunion on October 17. 

Features Galore 

All of the features that make Homecom- 
ing one of Bucknell's three big celebration 
days (the other two are Alumni-Com- 
mencement Weekend in June and Buck- 
nell's Birthday in February) will be in- 
cluded again this year. The full program 
of events will be published in the October 
BUCKXELL ALUMNUS but that will 
be too late to make your reservations. 
Send your ticket, room and luncheon res- 
ervations now (on a tentative basis if you 
must) so that adequate provision can be 
made for your comfort and pleasure. 
Forms for all these reservations are pro- 
vided in this issue of the ALUMNUS. 
Remember, the October issue will be too 
late this year. 

The Old Shoe Battle 

That traditional Old Shoe, symbolic of 
victory over Temple, has been proudly 
displayed in Carnegie Building during the 
past two years and no one on the campus 
has any thought of a change of residence 
for it. After all, it has become a part of 
the display unit that includes the Bronze 
Bison presented by the late Dr. S. Dale 
Spotts '18. However, there are plans afoot 
on the practice fields at Temple University 
to remove it from our midst. The Home- 
coming game with Temple has come to 
have a special meaning and, regardless of 
previous scores, a super football game is 
assured. Kick-off time is 2:00 o'clock. 
Vou will not want to miss this Game of 
the Year. 

The All-Alumni Luncheon 

Of course, the Homecoming Game is 
just the super-colossal feature of a star- 
studded program. The all-alumni lunch- 
eon at the Davis Gym at twelve noon 
Csharp; is the place to eat and meet your 
friends and classmates and catch the latest 
word on University aflfairs. But how can 
we prepare for a thousand visitors unless 
you tell us you arc coming — better send 
that reservation NOW. The luncheon 
will be over in plenty of time for you to 
.•ice the pre-game spectacle prepared for 
you by the Buckncll Band and majorettes. 

The Roundup is a Reunion 

After the ><amir i-veryljoily will trek back 
to Davis Gym for more meeting and grcet- 
tnn old friends. And where else can you 
Kivc vent to your opinion on two-platoon 
v», non-platoon football? After the

Other Features, Too 

Here we are out of space already and a 
dozen other highlights we'd like to tell 
you about. But if you've been here before 
on Homecoming Weekend you know all 
the big deals, and if this is your first in a 
long time, just come and be surprised at 
the hospitalitj- awaiting you on "The 
Hill." In fact, come Friday if you pos- 
sibly can so you will be in time for the 
Bonfire Parade and will be able to be up 
bright and early for the Bison Club Break- 
fast. Last minute previews of the game 
prospects will be on tap along with a 
hearty breakfast. The Bisons gather for 
breakfast at the Lewisburg Club, 131 
^Market Street and everyone is most wel- 
come, including the ladies. Alumni For- 
ums will occupy the morning hours after 
breakfast, with special programs devoted 
to discussions of alumni organizational ac- 
tivities. Several committees of the General 
Alumni Association will hold important 
meetings and a number of the classes holding 
five-year reunions in June 1954 will meet in 
planning sessions. 

Better make it a long weekend this year 
for the program is filled and several 
"musts", remain. There's the University 
Golf Course ready to make your round of 
golf a pleasant memory of the Home- 
coming Weekend. And a tour of the new 
Ellen Clarke Bertrand Library where spe- 
cial exhibits will be on display will be a 
rewarding experience. Then, too, all of 
Lewisburg's churches are having Home- 
coming services and you are cordially in- 
vited to attend the church of your choice. 

But NOW is the time to send in your 
reservations — at least on a tentative basis 
— waiting for the October issue of THE 
late. Remember, HOMECOMING IS 
EARLY THIS YEAR. See you all 
October 17. 

Dad Is King— October 3 

The Fifteenth Annual Dad's Day will be 
celebrated on the Bucknell Campus, Satur- 
day, October 3, 1953. Dad's Day, which is 
now a tradition, has become one of the out- 
standing functions of the school year. The 
program this year will include a Fathers' 
Association Board of Directors meeting in 
the Lewisburg Club, 131 Market Street, at 
10:45 A. M., followed by a Fathers' Lunch- 
eon to be held at the Lewisburg Qub 12:00 
noon sharp. Mr. George A. Dietrich, Rock- 
ville Centre, N. Y., President of the Fathers' 
Association, will conduct a short meeting 
when new officers for the Association will be 
elected for 1953-54. A message will also be 
brought to the Dads by the President of 
Bucknell University. Immediately follow- 
ing the luncheon meeting the Dads will at- 
tend the football game in Memorial Stadium 
scheduled for 2 :00 P. M. Muhlenberg Col- 
lege will be Bucknell's opponent on this occa- 
sion. At 8 :00 P. M. in Davis Gym the Men's 
and Women's Glee Clubs will sing and other 
entertainment will be provided. On Sunday, 
October 4, parents are cordially invited to 
attend the Lewisburg church of their choice. 

Although Dad's Day is dedicated to all the 
fathers of Bucknell students, the mothers 
are cordially invited. Mr. Howard "Red" 
Macauley, senior student, and President of 
Student-Faculty Congress, is writing a let- 
ter of invitation to all Bucknell parents to 
visit the campus October 3 and 4, 1953. The 
college will be thrown open to the parents, 
and they will be able to see how tlie students 
live, work and play at Bucknell University. 
The Fathers' Association and the students 
are especially anxious to have the parents of 
this year's freshmen class visit tlte Bucknell 
campus on Dad's Day. 

If you have a son or daughter at Buck- 
nell University at the present time, why not 
ask them to make room reservations for you 
in Lewisburg. You can secure your meals 
at the University Cafeteria. 

Bucknell University and her student body 
are looking forward to welcoming over one 
thousand parents to the campus on October 
3 and 4, 1953. 

Even though your plans may be tentative, please mail this reservation TODAY and

A FEATURED part of the five-ring 
circus known as Alumni and Com- 
mencement Weekend was devoted to the 
graduating seniors and their parents on 
June 6, 7, and 8. 

Although the new vitalized Alumni 
Weekend includes activities specially 
planned for the graduating seniors as well 
as the reuning alumni, there is no doubt 
that in the minds of seniors the climax of 
the weekend comes when the senior grasps 
that long coveted sheepskin from the ex- 
tended hand of the President of the Uni- 
versity. As a prelude to the actual Com- 
mencement exercises, seniors and their 
parents as well as many alumni visitors 
enjoyed the traditional President's recep- 
tion and the Baccalaureate exercises on 
Sunday, June 7. 

"The Infallible Rule of Life" 

Rev. David J. Davis '32, pastor of the Ply- 
mouth Congregational Church of Miami, 
Florida, speaker at the Baccalaureate services, 
noted that men have always been seeking 
the meaning of life. The Rev. Davis, who 
graduated from Bucknell in 19.32 and re- 
ceived his bachelor of divinity degree in 
1936 from the Yale Divinity School, 
praised the Golden Rule, the Eight Fold 
Path of Buddha, and the Ten Command- 
ments as guides to living. He then cited 
the five words, "Make the Best Come 
True," as a rule he would commend to the 
graduates as infallible. 

He observed that "it is one of the facts 
of human nature that you get just about 
what you are looking for in this life in 
that your deep unconscious desires come 
to pass." 

Senator Douglas of Illinois is 
Commencement Speaker 

Seniors were urged to develop both at- 
tributes of character and culture in a stir- 
ring address delivered by Senator Paul H. 
Douglas of Illinois who gave the Com- 
mencement address in place of Secretary 
of State John Foster Dulles who had to 
cancel his appearance because of the cli- 
max in the truce negotiations in Korea. 

Senator Douglas pointed out that "the 
pursuit of culture to the exclusion of char- 
acter gives us men who are at best fragile 
and at worst vicious. When the storms 
of adversity beat upon them, as happens 


upon occasion to most lives, they tend to 
go down in futility or failure." Citing the 
lives of Henry Adams, the Puritan; Crom- 
well, Michaelangelo and Jefferson as illus- 
trations, the Senator pointed out that the 
great and winsome characters in history 
have always been men who have com- 
bined these attributes. 

President Horace A. Hildreth conferred 
349 bachelor's, 33 master's and 6 honorary 
degrees. Dean William H. Coleman pre- 
sented the class for their degrees. During 
the presentation of the degrees Dr. Hil- 
dreth stepped back to permit Dr. Herbert 
Lincoln Spencer, former president of 
Bucknell and now a trustee, to present his 
daughter, Sally, a bachelor of arts degree 
cum laude. 

Honorary degrees were conferred on 
Herbert L. Spencer, Executive Director 
of the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, New 
York and a former president of Bucknell 
and of the Pennsylvania College for Wo- 

men; Dr. Clarence E. Carter, Chevy Chase, 
Md., a State Department editor and noted 
scholar in tlie field of American history ; 
Dr. Walter B. McKinney, Philadelphia, 
a business man and physician, who has 
practiced medicine since 1924 and has 
served as president of. various steamship 
and terminal companies; Bayard L. En- 
gland, Atlantic City, President of the 
Atlantic City Electric Company and the 
Ed. son Institute and vice chairman and 
treasurer of the New Jersey Highway 

The Commencement speaker, Senator 
Douglas, was awarded the degree of Doc- 
tor of Civil Law and the Rev. David J. 
Davis, the Baccalaureate speaker, received 
a degree of Doctor of Divinity. 

Distinguished Guests 

Distinguished guests at the Commence- 
ment exercises included Mrs. James Hile, 
Lumber City, Penna., daughter of Hannah 
Bloom Lemon of the Class of 1863, who 
came to see a representative of another 
generation of her family receive his de- 
gree. He was John Lemon Bailey of the 
Class of 1953 whose parents are Mr. and 
Mrs. Clyde P. Bailey (Dorothy Lemon) 
of the Class of 1929. Another visitor 
whose memory goes back to a graduation 
program of seventy years ago was Mrs. 
Anna Keiffer Hay of the Institute Class of 
1883 who traveled from Washington, D. C. 
to celebrate her 70th anniversary of gradu-

The Internship Program 

(Continued from Page 3) 

Our records indicate that the following 
Bucknellians participated in the Internship 
Program in Washington : Eric G. Stewart 
'36. Dora Elleni Oliver '37. Robert Renville 
"38. Russell O. Hess '40. and Mrs. Betty 
Holifield Feldmann '46. All of these folks 
except Mrs. Dora Elleni Oliver, for whom 
we have no current address, have been asked 
to comment upon the success of their partici- 
pation in the Internship Program. \\'e are 
pleased to present the interesting reports re- 
ceived from two of them. 

From Eric G. Stezi'art '36: 

Thanks for the opportunity to say a few 
good words about the N. I. P. A. program. 
While that institution was an experiment to 
test the idea of selecting potential civil ser- 
vants and bringing them from die college 
campus to Washington, the opportunity still 
exists and if a few words from me will 
encourage a student to seek a career in gov- 
ernment I am sure he or she will find it 

In the spring of 1936 I was beginning to 
wonder what an A.B. major in American 
History would do for a living that summer. 
I had visions of entering the foreign service 
of the State Department ... In Septem- 
ber 1936 a very green college student from 
Lewisburg was in the first crop of 28 
N. I. P. A. interns trying to get their feet on 
the ground in Washington. I soon found 
tliat the State Department was not for nie. 
But a happy second choice opened up in the 
Bureau of Foreign and Domestic Commerce. 
From there I watched the Washington scene 
for nine months. Together with its pro- 
gram of meetings with key figures, progress 
reports, supervisory interviews, counseling, 
etc., we managed to pack into those nine 
months as much experience as might have 
taken years to acquire otherwise. In this 
regard the N. I. P. A. gave us an advantage. 
It was a painless way of rapidly gaining 
practical experience with which to get a 
head start in our government career. On 
the other hand, looking back more than 16 
years I feel now that while we were greatly 
assisted in being "placed" in a government 
office, we were actually on our own initia- 
tive ajid got out of the program just about 
what we put into it. Some had a good time 
and went back to their father's business but 
the majority of us have stayed in govern- 
ment service of one kind or another. And 
with increasing regularity more of the 521 
intern names keep appearing in positions of 
responsibility. Hardly a day goes by here 
that one ex-tern will not pass on to another 
the word that "W. L. is now Executive Offi- 
cer of Mutual Security for India and we 
got a nice letter from his wife the other 
day telling about their trip from New 
Delhi to Ceylon" or "Did you sec the item 
on the first page of the Poxl today about 
J. M. being made Executive Director of the 
Civil Service Commission." 

If I had it to do over again I would cer- 
tainly be as eager to come to Washing- 
ton. The unfortunate publicity that the i)ress 
gives to p<iliticians like McCarthy and the 
distorted stories they tell is out of all pro- 
(Kirtion to the much bigger good work that 
the more than a million civil servants are 
doing. Wc arc gradually getting more recog- 
nition for the career public employee and 
the fart that there are honorable profession- 
al groups within the government .service. For 
example you now hear a lot about the field 
of arlministrative management with its sev- 
eral professional societies. I am sure that 
the .\. I. /'. A. has made a valuable contribu- 
ttrm toward this recognition. And even 
though the Institute is now closed and the 
f'ivil .Service Commission lias officially tak- 
en over the job of sfHtnsoring intern.ship.s, the

The Care and Feeding 
of College Students 


Mrs. Esther B. Long spends most of 
her waking hours preparing to feed the 
active men students and the calorie-con- 
scious coeds at the University. Mrs. Long 
holds three University degrees. D.S. '16, 
A.B. '17, M.A. '49 and is still pursuing 
courses at the University, but serves as 
the full time Director of Food Service. 
As head of a staff of 120, she plans and 
serves over 2400 meals a day. 

"Men students pose few food problems. 
Just give them meat, potatoes and plenty 
of milk and the)' seem contented," she 
revealed. "But with our women students, 
there's always the problem of dieting. 
Especially during Lent, desserts go wast- 

Mrs. Long named liver as the food most 
often ignored by Bucknell students, in 
spite of its high health value. 

They Dodge Breakfast 

Describing another idiosyncracj', she 
said that the University's women students 
are "breakfast-dodgers." 

"Even setting the breakfast hour later 
has failed to change that habit," she said. 

In the women's dining hall, the break- 
fast count reaches a weekly low on Sunday 
morning when the early risers number 
between 30 and 50, instead of the usual 

Meals are served cafeteria style in the 
University cafeteria, which has a capacity 
of 350. The Women's Dining Hall, with 
a seating capacity of 492, serves 1500 meals 

Caters to Parties 

Catering to teas, parties, and special 
dinners is another service provided by 
Mrs. Long's staff. Not a day goes by 
without some party or tea for which to 

A former Bucknell student herself, Mrs. 
Long has served in the food department 
at the University for 12 years, first as an 
assistant and then as dietitian for the 
Women's Dining Hall. Two years ago 
when the dining facilities were consoli- 
dated, she was made Director of I'ood 

But with all the work she has, Mrs. 
Long is still a perpetual student. 

"I still take at least one study course 
every semester," she added, "but I'm not 
working for credits at the moinenl. I 
just like to feel (hat I'm studying some 
thing worlhwhiti- < i' li ' :ir." 

Suppose You Were 
the Editor? 

Will you take ten minutes to be a guest 
We need your advice. 

To keep tlie cost of printing and mailing 
in the budget ($10,000) three newspaper edi- 
tions were added in 1948 to the previous 
printing schedule of four magazine editions. 
There is evidence that alumni do not give the 
newspaper editions the attention accorded the 
regular magazine issues. This is unfortu- 
nate for the same editorial content is sup- 
plied in both. 

One of the problems facing your editor, 
obviously, becomes one of considering ways 
of eliminating the less popular newspaper 
edition. Adding three magazine editions is 
out of the question on account of budget 
restrictions. However, the substitution of 
otie magazine for the three newspaper edi- 
tions would meet budget requirements. The 
question then becomes, shall we cut down 
to five magazine issues a year or continue 
the present four magazine and three news- 
paper editions. While you are voting you 
can help us in our space problems by giving 
your opinion on the space you would like us 
to devote to various elements in THE 

To make your job easier we print below

at that, please jot down in the open column 
the number of pages you would like us to

ideal, for we know that the balance could 
have been improved). If you care to make 
further remarks in a letter we will certainly 
give heed to your comments.

CLASS OF 1903 

Those present at the 50th Anniversary had 
a wonderful time. There were 25 reservations 
from a roster of 48. 

The scheduled meeting at 10:30 a. m. in 
Vaughan Literature Building was called to 
order b3' the President who introduced our 
faculty host, Mr. William McRae of the 
Music Department. The meeting was rather 
hectic and conducted in an unparlimentary 
manner, what with new arrivals dropping in, 
and everybody making talk. (I am sure, 
however, that Dr. Lincoln Hulley would have 
looked on us with kindly consideration.) 


Messages were read from John Cook, Dr. 
A. F. Donehower, Dr. Roger H. Williams, 
Harry Bilger, Ernest Taylor and wife Sadie 
Ayres, Dr. H. K. Williams, Joseph E. Glas- 
pey and excerpts from questionnaires of Dr. 
Bessie Burchett, Royce Carringer and others, 
who were present, were also read. 

It was nearing time for, picture taking, so 
class regalia, consisting of gold rosettes made 
by Ida Luchsinger, and skull caps with our 
class numerals were donned and the pictures 
was taken in 1903 form; there was not a chair 
nor bench in sigh. Somehow we never got 


back "in meeting", so it was never adjourned. 
If you cannot tell who is who in the picture 
let your class reporter know and she will 
send you a diagram. 

Scheduled to march at 12:00, we lined up 
behind the Emeritus Group and B. LT. band. 
In a slow informal manner, we reached Davis 
Gj'm where all Alumni were having lunch 
together. Our 1903 table was graced by 
several beautiful bouquets of red roses — our 
class flower — also, place cards printed in gold 
and golden favors were at each place. 

After a delicious luncheon our class wa>, 
given special recognition and Jane Fowler 
Bullis, of Whittier, California, was also given 
special mention as having traveled the farth- 
est. After the luncheon we went to Walker 
House where a special reunion party was ' 
arranged by our competent social chairman, 
Mrs. Charlotte Shields Murphy. We showed 
pictures, old and new, the old ones bringing 
back many memories, the new ones showing 

CLASS OF 1908 

The Class of 1908 met for its scheduled 
business meeting hoping that by some good 
fortune, our president. Dr. Winfield Booth, 
would be there with gavel in hand. How- 
ever, illness prevented his presence. 

After the appointment of Henry C. 
Thomspon as temporary chairman and Mae 
Jones McGuire as temporary secretary the 
business meeting of our 45th Anniversary ! 
Class reunion was called to order with 21 
members present. 

Election of officers followed. Elected were: 
president. Dr. Winfield Booth; vice-presi- 
dent, Charles A. Nicely; secretary, Helen T. 
Blakemore; class fund manager, W. Carl 
Sprout; class reporter, Margaret Mathias.

our pride and interest in the generations that 
follow us. 

Everyone received a "prize" for one reason 
or another. We had punch, cookies, and 
candy, and lots of talk. Our regret is that 
all cou'd not have stayed with the small group 
to the end. This group went to church, the 
President's reception. Baccalaureate services. 
Commencement, and to a viewing of Airs. 
Edith Kelly Fetherston's paintings and antiques 
at Packwood House. 

As guests of the University, we are most 
grateful for the fine hospitality extended to 
us. AH in all it was a very happy and mem- 
orable time for those present. To quote a 
member of the University family "everybody 
was watching them, they were having such 
a good time." 

— Mrs. Elvie C. Herpel, 


Members of the class were happy to meet 
each other and the various members of their 
fatnilics who displayed the same keen en- 
thusiasm and interest from start to finish. 

The Committee for the SOth Anniversary 
has already begun plans; the first is to ob- 
tain a snap-shot Twith film) as of 1953 of 
each class member. Do it now, and mail it 
to Margaret Mathias at once. 

Our class was given recognition for its 
contributions to the Alumni Fund, and we 
hope that in the future W. Carl Sprout, our 
class fund manager will be given your liberal 
(Upfiort in making the record of 1908 even 
more uulstanding. 

Words arc most inadequate to express the

made the affair informal, inlimale and home- 
.S K !• T K M I> K K IS .'. 3 

With startling swiftness forty years have 
swept by since 1913, and it is June, 1953. 
Twenty-eight of us, prouder of out Bucknell 
heritage than ever in the past, spent happy 
hours together celebrating in grand reunion 
at the campus we all love so well. 

On Saturday, June 6, came our first official 
time for assorted and approved epithets of 
greeting, renewed handshakes, and heartiest 
gladness. It was real, honest-to-goodness 
reality. Interrupting all this gayety, of nec- 
essity, came our business meeting. 

After greetings by our friendly faculty host. 
Dr. Frantz, Prexy Howard "Sal" Fisher 
called all to silence and to words of prayer 
by Rev. George F. Haines. Thus, in dignity 
and thankful worship was our meeting begun. 

Accompanied by occasional clattering of a 
classroom bell on the wall to add college 
flavor and halted by frequent interruptions 
by raucous welcomes to new arrivals, the 
meeting was highly responsive to our prexy's 
conduct of every item of heavy business to 
receive attention by these 60-year-olds bent 
on a good time. 

Everything was lovely. Officers elected 
for a new five-year term arc "Howie" Fisher, 
president; Prof. "Hal" Shaffer, treasurer; 
C. L. Sanders, secretary; "Mar" Glover, re- 
union chairman. In fact everything went 
so well that a motion was passed to establish 
class dues, voluntary but desirable, to assure 
the sound financial honor of 1913 and to give 
Harold Shaffer the pleasure of sending onl 
notices sometime next spring. 

Oi course, a photographer had to iiUirrupl 
the stately, however noisy, progress of our 
meeting. Well, the picture soon became a 
matter of record for the ALUMNUS and 
the archives where all claims lo greatness are 
preserved. Within nn'nutes after the Ijual 
camera click came Delinda Potter and Jane 
Ircy Rces, first girls to report. At the lunch- 
eon F.thel Hottenstein Miles joined the group 
and the fun. On the parade march to Davis 

Gym, "Pud" Stein and "Whitey" Zehner fell 
into line. "Berk" Hastings could be present 
Friday evening only. Of the 28 returning, 
the six just named are missing from the pic- 
ture. Try to identify the other twenty-two, 
all men, the 12 ladies being wives present, 
although a few are not in the picture. 

Following the picture a memorial for our 
40 departed classmates was fittingly observed. 
Class reporter Sanders slowly read the names 
after which Rev. Ed. Brush united hearts 
and minds with the personalities of those 
gone from their earthly home. These mo- 
ments in prayer recorded a fealty to Bucknell 
and 1913 that can not be forgotten. 

On Friday evening, for 12 early birds, and 
on Saturday afternoon the home of Classmate 
"Jim" McCkire and wife on University Ave- 
nue was our headquarters. Language only 
weakly can express our gratitude for the re- 
ception all of us received there. It was su- 
perb — hospitality, cookies, punch, memories, 
chats, everything but goodbyes. 

Those Lucky 13 badges were distinctive. 
Worn with unbelievable pride, they added to 
campus color and enthusiasm beyond any 
classmate's dream. 

But I must not stop without telling of 
greetings read from Helen Harlol Leonard, 
Rev. "Dick" Howling, "Howie" Goehring, 
Llarry Xing Kelly, Winifred Naylor, (ieorge 

To all wives present a gracious Thanks!! 
(ciiiK- ,i(_;,iin. You are in the best of standing 
.IS honorary members of 1913. Next time 
we hope siiine husbands of classmate wives 
will join ns in all the nu'nimenl. 

And to all abscMlees a siiic<Ti- regret that 
you were unalilr li> iduic this yc-ir! We 
missed you not as a group but one by one. 
We can hope for all a return at a future time. 
Our 45lli will be here soon — in 1958. 



CLASS OF 1918 

How time flies! Reunion is over and now 
we will begin to plan for the next one. At- 
tendance was light, as you will see from the 
group picture. 

I was a little surprised to find that I had 
been listed as Reunion Chairman. Had I 
known that I am sure I would have made 
an extra special effort to see that more of 
you '18ers had journeyed to Lewisburg. 

Our President, Barton Mackey, has been 
convalescing from a serious operation and 
he asked me to take over for him. I was 
late in arriving, having had to detour 
through Montandon to reach Lewisburg. We 
had our business meeting, electing the same 
officers, with the exception of Dr. Chester 
Keefer, who had asked to be relieved of his 
post. In his place, and combining the office 
of class treasurer and class fund manager, 
we elected Russell E. Boyer. You will be 
hearing from him. We exchanged news, had 
our picture taken and then attended the 
Alumni Truncheon. 

r had never attended an Alumni Luncheon 
and I found it most interesting; a thousand 
Bucknellians is a fine spot to acquire some 
of that good old Bucknell enthusiasm. 

Of the members who were back for our 
Reunion, Jessie Potts Kline had her father 
with her. Mr. Potts is 88. Dagmar Leth 
Donauer had her husband, Dr. Donauer, and 
her mother, Mrs. Leth, who is -82. Dagmar 
has a son, a Princeton graduate and a doctor, 
serving in Korea. 

Did you know that University records 
show that 31 members of our Class have 
died? And there are 16 "lost" members. Do 
you know the whereabouts of Marguerite 
Baird or Trella Yoder — just two of the miss- 

I do hope to hear from more of you in 
the future. The reporting has been fun and 
I want to continue — with your help. 

— Elizabeth Champion King, 


CLASS OF 1923 

To those who have to read this report to 
learn about our class reunion — condolences! 
Golly, we wish you could have made it! More 
fun! "Now don't tell me, I'll remember in 
a minute — isn't this — but it can't be. Why 

you don't look thirty years older! Hi, Peg! 
Why, there's Betty, too (hugs and kisses). 
And there's Andy Gehret (Doctor, 5^ o u 
know). Isn't he distinguished looking with 
his fine face and white hair? , And, isn't he 


lucky to have all that hair!" Dal Griffith 
has some, too. So does Luke Miller and 
Pinky Jones (in fact. I happen to know 
that Pinky is just a trifle proud of his). As 
for a lot of the others — well, some of the 
nicest guys haven't much, you know. In 
general, the women seem to have held up 
better than the men. (If you don't believe 
it, order a reunion picture). 

Now for some less disputable information. 
Your reporter missed the business meeting 
in the morning due to the coincidence of re- 
union and ripe strawberries that had to be 
"done". Dick, my youngest son, and I were 
there in plenty of time, however, to join the 
forty or more members of our class as- 
sembled for the march down the hill to Davis 
gym and dinner. We were no more than 
seated till Gladys Emerick Erdman and I 
were exchanging snapshots of our families. 
It was slightly more than warm that day, 
so the removal of coats by the men soon 
became a general activity. Then some of the 
big brains of the class (they must have 
been engineers and they might have been 
headed by our president) gathered up all the 
decorative balloons within reach, tied the 
strings together, fastened then to the size- 
able 1923 card from their table and nudged 
the creation gently skyward. Up it went, 
grandly, applause rising with it — till it 
lodged against the top-most rafters; 1923 
took precedence over all its fellows. 

CLASS OF 1928 

One hundred seventeen (117) alumni rep- 
resented the Class of 1928 at its all-important 
Twenty-fifth reunion on June 6, 1953. 

An influx of alumni in general began on 
Friday, and continued throughout the week- 
end. A large number were "Twenty-eighters" 
who lost no time in meeting old friends' and 
making new ones. We couldn't have had 
more fun! 



Following the dinner we went to Seventh 
Street House (right across the street from 
Annex, girls^ where our afternoon head- 
quarters were. There Jerr\- Schmucker 
Sheffer had her husband installed behind the 
punch bowl, ladling out a good cold harm- 
less drink to all comers (.Jerry w-as too busy 
VN"aiting for a telephone message that \vould 
say she had a new grandchild). There were 
others there not free from anxiety either. 
Vivian Livingston Ferguson's husband has 
been seriously ill for quite some time and 
her trip back to the campus was what the 
doctor ordered as a needed respite for her, 
from the constant, devoted care of him. 
They live in Ocean City, N. J. Vivian's 
famous smile is still there, and still very 
sweet. Anyhow, everybody seemed so happy 
to see everybody else, and those of us who 
had anything to do with planning the re- 
union felt gratified to have the response that 
we did to the first concerted effort to have a 
real reunion in the thirty years since gradu- 

A list of ofiicers elected at the business 
meeting follows: president. Dr. Dalzell M. 
Griffith: vice-president, Harry W. Jones; 
secretarj-, Foster C. Wilson; treasurer, class 
fund manager, Arda C. Bowser; class re- 
porter, Mrs. LeRoy Frantz. 

— Olive Eillhime Frantz, 

This reunion was the first real get-together 
of our class since graduation, and through 
the efforts of a fine group of committees it 
wa» a really bang-up affair. The whole wcek- 
ftnl was a very busy one, but it was so well 
planned that everyone had adequate time to 
rclax> and visit with families and friends. 

Our class meeting was scheduled lor 10:.30 
|tn the beautiful Bcrtrand Library, After 
.s K p T K M n K R I » s a 

H. M. Marsh "Gummy" opened the meeting 
with a friendl}- welcome he familiarized us 
with the fine program set up tor us and all 
of the returning Bucknellians and friends. A 
huge planning committee comprised of stu- 
dents, faculty, alumni and the townspeople 
had left nothing undone. Special attention 
had been given to arranging housing ac- 
commodations and fine food for all of us. 

Dr. Lewis Theiss was our honorary faculty 
guest. It was great to see and hear from him 
again. We all recalled how very pleased he 
had been years ago when we elected to dedi- 
cate our L'Agenda to him. 

A very brief business meeting followed, 
and we were brought up to date on a few 
vital matters. We were reminded by our 
President — Marsh, not "Ike" — to obtain our 
special reunion hats and also our anniversary 
booklets. The latter is a class history espe- 
cially prepared by a committee appointed 
many months prior to our reunion. These 
booklets are great, and if you haven't seen 
one send a buck to Buck Shott and get one. 
All the worthwhile news of those who took 
time to answer the questionnaire has been 

compiled in fine style to be passed on to you. 
After you read it you will know just what 
became of old what's-his-name! 

After the class picture was taken we lined 
up behind a band, and began the traditional 
march to the Davis Gj'm where we had our 
Alumni luncheon. 

At three that afternoon, we all met at the 
Milton Country Club for a social get-together.. 
More _ tales were told and more stories 
swapped in the next few hours than you'd 
hear at an Elk's Convention! We must have 
been quite a bunch "in our day." 

I know everyone who was there will agree 
this one event in our program was a real high- 
light. We had such a lot of fun! 

Each one of you must make up your mind 
now to be one of those to return to our next 
reunion. You know you really should if only 
to check on the gang and see how everyone — 
well except you, of course, has changed. 

I promise if you go back once you'll agree 
that Reunions are grand! 

— LoRiNNE M. Marsh, 

CLASS OF 1933 

If you saw a handsome man or an attrac- 
tive lady with a saucer-size Orange and 
Blue button, clutching Orange and Blue 
balloons and leaning on a cane — that was a 
happy classmate from 1933. There were 47 
class members who returned for the biggest 
and best reunion — our 20th. We didn't count 
the children but there were some very at- 
tractive youngsters in the group — some old 
enough to attend college — how time passes! 

According to the records, the niemlnr 
traveling the greatest distance to attend the 
reunion was our genial "Red" Wilkenson 
who journeyed from Hawaii. And, he came 
bearing lovely orchids for the ladies — real 
ones flown in from Hawaii. Thanks again, 
"Red", they made us feel like only an orchid 
can — simply wonderful! 

We were serious— long enough to elect 
the following officers for the next 5 years: 
president, D. Qayton Brouse; vice-president, 

Warren (Bud) Stflpleton; secretary, Marie 
Groff Hester; treasurer, Ralph Reish; class 
reporter, Janet Worthinglon Engleliardt; 
class fund ■manager, Campljell Rutledge, Jr.; 
25th reunion chairman, Louis .1. Rnsso. 

We had anotlier serious nuiinenl too— 
when we realized all llie time, work, and 
effort that Bill Liming devoted to our class 
book, "Twenty ^■^■ars .After". This 1953 An- 
niversary L'Agenda isn't an ordinary book; 
it has items of interest of our classmates, 
candid camera shots of the m and their 
families, and plenty of statistics on what our 
classmates have achieved. The book creates 
a warm feeling for our class and our col-

CLASS OF 1938 

In the absence of the class secretary and 
class reporter, I shall attempt to report the 
activities of the reunion of the Class of 1938. 
In the 10th anniversary report for the Class 
of 1938, Ira Fox mentioned that enough 
enthusiasm was expressed by the small group 
to indicate bigger and better reunions for the 
future. Surely this ISth anniversary of ours 
was a huge success. Ward Gage and "C. H." 
Richardson, co-chairmen of the reunion, 
should be given special credit for their efforts 
in the interest of our class. 

During the short business meeting before 
luncheon the following officers were elected 
for the next five years: president, Ira G. 
Fox; vice-president, William D. Foltz; sec- 
retary, Alice Anderson Clemens; treasurer, 
Constance Krautter Edwards; class fund 
manager, Ira G. Fox; class reporter, Ann 
Culbertson Dempsey. Letters received from 
members who could not attend were circu- 
lated and read. Mr. Howard Kieft, a faculty 
member handling psychological testing, was 
our faculty host. The book entitled "Rumi- 
nate with '38" was given to each of us. 

The Reunion Classes joined in a mass 
parade from the Lit Building to the Gym. 
And here I must congratulate the LTniversitj^ 
on its excellent handling of the Alumni lunch- 
eon and all the reunion activities. Everyone 
seemed so very favorably impressed with the 
efforts made to insure an enjoj'able weekend 
for the returning classes. 

Thanks to Marion Ranck Rose and her 
husband for entertaining us at their home on 
Saturday afternoon and to Bob Wright and 
his wife for the hospitality the '38ers enjoyed 
after closing the Alumni Jamboree late Sat- 
urday evening. 

Let us begin planning our 20th reunion 
now. Although this is the first reunion I 
have attended, I will certainly make every 
effort to attend the future ones. Those of 
you who could not come this time should 
definitely return in 1958. 

— Constance Krautter Edwards, 

CLASS OF 1943 

The tenth reunion meeting" 
1943 was called to order 
Haines, Jr., president. The 
fifth reunion meeting was

is Bill Thomas and the class reporter is 
Norene Bond Benton. 

Letters from absent members were read, 
as well as a list of deceased members. A 
moment of silence was observed in respect 
for these departed members. 

After our reunion picture was taken, each 
member introduced himself and his wife or 
husband. The greatest distance traveled 

CLASS OF 1948 

Forty-eight of our classmates came back to 
our fifth reunion — yes, 48 from the class of 
'48 — we did it. 

We had a marvelous time — only wish more 
of you could have made it — please try hard 
to come in 1958 — our tenth reunion. 

Our activity started Saturday morning, 
June 6th, at a "business" meeting in one of 
the Lit rooms. Actually, we mostly caught 
up on what everyone had done in the past 
5 years. Then we picked up our identifying 
insignia which was a cane with a BLTCK- 
NELL pennant and a sign with '48 on it. 
One of the highlights of the meeting was thel 
presentation of a pamphlet published by ourl 
own JOHN BURTON CLARK, who com- 
piled it from replies to the questionnaires wel 
received last spring. It is a most interesting 
and informative booklet and must have taken

Alter we had our class picture taken (see 
bovc). we marched down, by reunion classes, 
o Davis Gym for the All-.^lumni luncheon. 
t was a beautiful day lor marching — not 
ikt five years ago, remember? 

At 3 o'clock we met informally at Edwards 
^ouse, next to the music school, on Sixth 
Street, a newly acquired coed house. 

Some of the coed houses were taken over 
omplctely by '48ers for dormitory use for 
he weekend — so we talked all night too. 
•'vcryone was so happy to be back together. 

And trtat's about it — we of the Class of

Many loyal Bucknellians from the Class 
of '52 journeyed back to Lewisburg for their 
first reunion, to join in the planned festivities 
as well as some of their own making. A 
small fraction of those who returned met 
under the chairmanship of .August St. John 
at the scheduled alumni reunion in Bertrand 
Librarj', as evidenced by our class picture. 
( Many more w-ere 'listening to the ivy' over 
a cup of coffee at the Bison). Our individ- 
uality as members of the class of 'Si was 
noted by white carnations tied, naturally, 
with orange and blue streamers. 

Mr. Charles A. Hollister was our very 
pleasant and helpful faculty host. The busi- 

ness of re-electing" alumni officers was com- 
pleted with but one change, that of secre- 
tary — yours truly being the obvious substitu- 

The rest of the meeting as well as the rest 
of the weekend was spent catching up on the 
whereabouts of fellow classmates, and re- 
newing acquaintances with under-graduates.

its reunion chairman, August St. John, and 
the numerous undergraduates who worked 
hard to make our first reunion a successful

CLASS OF 1953 

According to the June issue of THE 
BUCKNELL ALUMNUS, "the weather 
man had been spoken to . . . that the June 
6 weekend would be a typical sun-drenched 
lluckiu'l! weekend" — and that it was for over 
I tiiousand seniors, friends, and families thai 
gathered on the campus to salute and say 
farewell to the Class of 'S3. 

It was a weekend devoted to fun, chats, 
and get-togethers, with the seniors and their 
families as guests of honor; and yet it was 
also a weekend devoted to the -Munnii, with 
the activities of the two groups meshed to- 
gether to recapture and recall the college 
days once enjoyed. 

An activity participaterl in by the seniors 
that was not scheduled was one that will be 
long remembered by the class. The salute 
to President aiifl Mrs. Ilildreth at the rally 
held the night they returned from I'.ikislan 
had its sad moments, for IVisidciit Ilildreth 
might well have been con.sidcred a mcMiher 
of the Class o{ '53 since he had taken his 

■S K !• 7 K M B K It 

position lour years ago and, in a sense, had 
"graduated" with the seniors. The cheers, 
posters, and shouts of "good luck" will not 
soon be forgotten. 

The All-Ahnnni Luncheon boasted the 
presence of ;i large part of the senior class as 
they slightly prematurely look their places 
in the group of liiicknell Ahnnni. I'ollowing 
the luncheon most of the seniors attended the 
Varsity-Alumni baseball game — and, of 
course, cheered their own varsity team to 

Symposia, llie Jamboree (lul \Villi;inis 
and Ihe gang were a riot), and the Cap and 
Dagger play, "School for Scandal" filled the 
evening w i t h never-to-be-forgotten mem- 

Connneni-emenl ninrning arrived sunny 
and not too warm- -a perfect day to gradu- 
ate the 381 seniors who had waited four 
years fur this precise moment.

A small, but intimate group of Buck- 
nell Alumni gathered at the Sparrows 
Point Country Club for a meeting on 
Saturday, June 20. Early arrivals were 
treated to a cruise on Harold Ruger's 

Following a chicken dinner, the presi- 
dent, Harold Ruger, introduced our guest 
speaker. Dr. C. Herschel Jones from 
Bucknell. His talk was most interestin.g 
and enlightening as to what is taking- 
place on the campus and also in the po- 
litical science department. An inforinal 
discussion followed the talk. 

The election of officers was postponed 
until the fall meeting when we hope there 
will be a much larger attendance.

Long Island 

Following a delicious dinner at Felice's 
Restaurant May 7 at Westbury, L. I., at- 
tended by about sixty Bucknellians and 
friends, Tom Cann, Jr. '41, president of 
the Long Island Bucknell Club, called 
a brief business meeting. After accep- 
tance of reports by the secretary and 
treasurer, the president appointed a nomi- 
nating committee to prepare a list of offi- 
cer nominees for consideration at the 
September meeting. The nominating 
committee includes: Paul Crago '30. 
chairman; "Duke" Dueger '47; Walter 
Rohr '39; Betty Liming '34; Sally Cann 

A most interesting program then fol- 
lowed, introduced with a brief review of 
the beginning (2 years ago) of the 
awarding of a trophy to an outstanding 
Long Island High School athlete, of high 
scholarship and of the presentation of 
that trophy at an annual Sports Award 

Attention was called to the fact that in 
■ attendance at this Sports Award Dinner 
were Coach Harry Lawrence of Buck- 
nell, a number of Long Island High 
School coaches (including the coach from 
the school of the 1953 award winner), the 
Sports Editors from each of the three 
Long Island daily newspapers who nomi- 
nate several boys for consideration in 
awarding of the trophy, several prospec- 
tive Bucknell students, and a fine repre- 
'"sentation of Bucknell alumni. 

Bill Liming '33 then introduced the 
1953 Sports Award Winner — Jim Ther- 
rian of Charmmade High School, Mine- 
ola, N. Y., whose sports include foot- 
ball, basketball, and track (half mile), 
and whose other activities include presi- 
dent of his class, president of the Student 
Council, and the achievement of a 94% 
scholastic average for his four years in 
high school. 

Nick Farina '34, principal at Lawrence, 
L. I. introduced Coach Harry Lawrence 
of Bucknell who presented the trophy to 
Jim Therrian on behalf of the Long 
Island Bucknell Club. 

Following a most interesting talk by 
Coach Lawrence, Bucknell football 
movies were shown, with commentary 
by Coach Lawrence. 

The meeting then closed, leaving all 
of those in attendance with the feeling 
that this had been a "fine affair."

At a covered dish supper enioyed at 
the Robert Dills' home, the Executive 
Board of the Philadelphia Alumni Club 


planned another Splash Party for the 
Philadelphia area Bucknell Freshmen and 
their parents. The party was held Aug- 
ust 31st at the Eastern Baptist Seminary 
Swimming Pool. Plans for other Buck- 
nell Alumni get-togethers for the Club 
were also discussed.

Lehigh Valley 

The Lehigh Valley Bucknell Alunmi 
Club held a Spring election meeting and 
bufifet supper on Friday, May 1, at the 
Americus Hotel, Allentown. Professor 
Robert A. Gardner of the civil engineer- 
ing department at Bucknell brought the 
club up to date on campus events. 

Officers elected for the coming year 
were: president, Spencer Carlough '50, 
Bethlehem; vice-president, Paul Albert 
'40, Emmaus; secretary-treasurer, Gloria 
Burkhardt Cowdrick '48, Allentown. 

The club will hold a Bucknell round- 
up at Windish Hall, near the Lehigh 
Campus, on Saturday afternoon, October 
31, directly after the Bucknell-Lehigh 
football game. Bucknellians from all 
areas who are planning to attend the 
game are urged to come to Windish Hall 
after the game to meet classmates and 
other Bucknellians.

Ah me, is it really fifty years since we 
gathered, a hundred strong, in Bucknell 
Hall to meet Prexy Harris with the 
keen grey eyes and the sudden warm 
smile, and to sign the big book and 
shake his hand, being thus formally 
matriculated as freshmen. How busy 
those Lewisburg September days were; 
buying furniture from Lou Robey and 
Coxey Thompson, the college pluto- 
crats; buying Billy Bartol's blue geome- 
try; beginning "that av/ful German 
language" with Emil Weithaas. Rhe- 
toric with Llewellyn Phillips at eight 
o'clock every Monday; hearing him read 
our themrs — (of my first one he said: 
"Now that's a paper a drunken man 
might have written" — a very apt figure, 
for it certainly staggered toward an un- 
certain goal). 

Chapel; fifteen minutes with Prexy's 
Bible reading, short prayer, and a hymn 
intoned by Waltz and a straggling choir. 
Greta, bustling about on many errands. 
"The freshman-sophomore scrap. The 
bridge on St. George Street and the 
legend inscribed by Stanton-led Semi- 
tes: "The freshman girls did it — the 
boys were too slow." 

Hazing; a memory of Sandy Adams 
tackling Doc GrofT's comshocks under 
a sophomore coaching. Parading past 
the Sem Indian file confessing "How 
^een I am." Informal debate under 
mstruction from Timmy Powell (now a 
sober Congregational minister; on the 
question: Resolved, that rain is wetter 
than water. Potter starred. 


The literary societies and the agony 
of the first oration, despite oratorical 
training under Maneval (Bromley 
Smith came later). 

George Hoskins and his stalwart foot- 
ball team practicing on Loomis Field. 
The game at Williamsport — "Oh, here 
come the Carlisle Indians." 

The discovery of the Four-Mile and 
Winfield Cave, the Marsh, and other 
hilcing goals. And the Sem, with the 
stiffness of the first "At Home" and the 
weeklv meetings of the Mandolin and 
Guitar Club. 

Bailey's Latin: "Mr. Hinman, will you 
please wake up Mr. Evans." Ah, yes. 
Old Lewisburg. To steal a phrase — 
"The golden haze of college days clings 
round about you yet."

Mildred Kirk Morgan (Mrs. Thomas 
R.), 6139 North 11th St., Philadelphia

War, she taught English and German in 
a New Jersey high school for a few 
months and then entered the ordnance 
department of the United States Army 
from which she was honorably dis- 
charged. While her husband Dr. Mor- 
gan returned to the Rotunda Hospital 
in Dublin, Ireland to specialize, she 
became chief accountant in one of our 
local hospitals for nine years. Since 
then she has been keeping house and 
working for the past fifteen years for 
the Philadelphia Tuberculosis Society 
at no salary, at home. Her work con- 
sists of reading the newspapers daily 
and reporting on new addresses, wed- 
dings, and deaths, typing cards for their 
list, and so keeping it up to date. In 
one year thirty-five hundred cards were 
turned in. 

She and her husband are Presbyteri- 
ans. Each year Mildred helps with the 
Community Chest Drive, Red Cross, 
and the Salvation Army Drive.

to see Kris so well after his nearly three 
year imprisonment in Northern Korea. 
They are looking forward to goinn back 
to Korea as soon as possible because of 
the great need for experienced mission- 
aries. To tliat end, July 1 tliey were

Tom and his wife (Mary Savidge Rich-

the Bucknell Alumni programs in Roch- 
ester where Tom is president of the 
local alumni club. We too are proud of 
his intelligent and practical work with 
the unfortunate of his city. Tom dis- 
plays a real sense of mission in his work 
and religious services are a definite part 
of the life in the service center. And 
because Tom believes in the inate hon- 
esty of man and their wish to be in- 
dependent and not objects of charity, 
he has initiated the policy of making 
loans for their basic needs. About 75% 
are repaid; the self-respect of the men 
has thus been preserved and Tom's faith 
in them has been justified.

Fi 0)11 RusscI! 0. Hess '40: 

When the N. I. P. A. program became ex- 
tinct in 1949, it had literally put itself out 
of business. During the years from 1936 to 
1942, the Institute, although it had no official 
link with the federal service, was one of the 
principal suppliers of promising young execu- 
tive talent. In the war years, with impetus 
supplied by the Civil Service Commission, 
the federal government began to undertake 
increasingly more extensive programs of pos- 
itive recruitment of junior executives. 

In the immediate post-war period the com- 
Liination of the abolition of many, and the 

retrendiment of other federal activities, 
together with legal and other inhibiting re- 
cruitment factors, signalled the approaching 
end of the institute's program. The institution 
of executive selection and training programs 
as official federal programs came about as a 
direct result of the efforts of Dr. F, M. 
Davenport and his leadership of the N. I. P. 
A. program. As one who was privileged to 
be associated with the N. 1. P. A. in its 
golden era and who is intimately familiar 
with the current Junior Management Assis- 
tant program, I naturally regret the passing 
of the N. I. P. A., but believe that the J. M. 
A. is a worthy son of a worthy parent. 

On leaving Bucknell, I came to Washing- 
ton in the fall of 1940 to participate in the 
work-study program under the aegis of the 
National Institute of Public Affairs. Inci- 
dentally, 1 am doubly indebted to the insti- 
tute, because it selected a girl to be part of 
our intern group who subseciuently became 
my wife and the mother of our three sons. 

As an immediate outgrowth of the experi- 
ence in the N. I. P. A. program, I became 
affiliated with the Farm Security Adminis- 
tration, and served with various other units 
of the Agricultural Department from 1941 
to 1946. From 1946 to 1950, when I re- 
turned to the federal service, I did a variety 
of things : staff member of a private man- 
agement consultant firm ; special manage- 
ment project with U. N. R. R. A.; and teach- 
ing government and administration at the 
University of Maine and the University of 

The last two years, it has been my privil- 
ege to be associated with the most daring 
and challenging federal program in the post- 
war era, the Point IV or technical co-opera- 
tion program, in which program I serve as 
executive officer for that part of the Point 
IV program concerned with the Near East 
and independent Africa.

A Buckuell Experiiueut Gets Recoguition— And Support 

By Alfred H. Fenton, Assistant to the President 

Officially, as of July 20, Bucknell Univer- 
sitj- was awarded a $25,000 grant from the 
Carnegie Corporation of Xew York, to pro- 
vide for nourishment of Bucknell's five- 
year-old brain child, the Lfniversitj- Course. 

To members of the last five graduating 
classes, who took part in this experiment in 
integrative education, this should be exhilar- 
ating news. To all Bucknell Alumni, this rec- 
ognition by one of the country's outstanding 
foundations should be heartening proof that 
the Universitj- "on the hill" continues to 
move forward. 

The above two paragraphs undoubtedly 
will evoke numerous questions on the part of 
those Alumni who have not been in touch 
with things academic at Bucknell. \\'hat is 
"integrative education?" What is the Uni- 
versity Comse? How did the Carnegie Cor- 
poration happen to give the University $25,- 
000? The answers to these questions make 
rather exciting reading. 

At the close of World War II, Bucknell 
re-examined its curriculum with a view 
towards meeting post-war needs. The re- 
sults of this Faculty survey showed, among 
other things, that the trend toward special- 
ization at Bucknell, as elsewhere, was pro- 
ducing lop-sided students — engineers who 
couldn't understand the humanities ; scientists 
who knew the mechanics of man, but little 
about human nature. Consequently, the Fac- 
ulty Committee recommended a special one- 
semester course for seniors which would pro- 
vide a systematic study with the view to 
bringing together of all fields of knowledge. 
This tj'pe of study, known as integrative edu- 
cation, had as its purpose to acquaint the stu- 
dent with the interrelations of the various 
fields of knowledge — to show how psychology 
cannot be ignored in the field of medicine ; 
how economics and sociology are intertwined ; 
how biology and chemistrj' are related. To 
set up such a "university course" a Faculty 
Committee was appointed. 

Bucknell was not alone in experimenting 
with this problem, but the University Course, 
as conceived by Professors Preston Warren, 
Donald Stillman. and Arthur Wood, of the 
Philosophy, English, and Sociology- Depart- 
ments respectively — and later developed by 
the directors — was unique in its approach to 
the matter. Basically, the University Course 
sought to study and compare the various 
fields of knowledge by applying the same 
measures to each. This consisted of three 
major questions : \\'hat are the major prob- 
lems in the field? What are the methods by 
which these problems are attacked? What 
are the basic concepts and principles in the 
field? In obtaining the answers to these 
questions, the student soon came to see how 
very often the eflforts in one field of knowl- 
edge were dependent upon the efforts by the 
specialists in a second and third field of 

The University Course thus accomplished 
several things. It gave the student a wealth 
of fresh material to which to give thought ; 
it showcfl the student that though he might 
know a great deal alKiut his own chosen field, 
there was much to be learned in related 
fields ; It mspircd the student to investigate 
these other fields. 

The University Course was first given in 
the Spring semester of 1948 and for three 
ycar.i, thi: directors of the course, who later 
included Profcss^jr Harry R. fiarvin of the 
English Department, and Profcs.sor F. Da- 
vid Martin of the Philosophy Department, 
cxjicrimcntcd and revised in an effort to 
perfect their efforts. During this i>criod, the 

S R I' T K M B K R 19 5 8 

directors studied tlie work in integrative edu- 
cation at other universities and came more 
and more to realize that their course was as 
good, if not better, than most. They also 
reached the conclusion that to be most effec- 
tive. The University Course would have to 
be expanded over several semesters. 

Accordingly, in 1951, the course directors 
approached the University administration for 
assistance in obtaining a grant from a na- 
tional foundation for the purpose of ex- 
panding the course. It was agreed that the 
Carnegie Corporation was the most likely 
source, since it already had shown interest in 
the matter of integrative education. A trip 
to New York engaged the interest of Dr. 
Oliver C. Carmichael, then President of the 
Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of 
Education, and in the Fall of 1951 he visited 
the University for a closer examination of tlie 
project. He explained that his organization 
was attempting to help experiments in in- 
tegrative education by backing various ap- 
proaches to the problem. Thus, Union Col- 
lege and Smith College, which eventually 
received Carnegie grants, had the same gen- 
eral goals as the Bucknell plan, but were 
attempting to reach them by other approach- 
es. In fact, it is now clear, the Bucknell 
method has a much larger scope than these 
others. Union College, for example, is at- 
tempting to integrate ideas common to cer- 
tain fields, whereas Bucknell is attempting 
integrations of all major fields. 

Correspondence ensued throughout the 
next year, clarifying the relationships of 
this program to the departments of the 
Bucknell curriculum. Then, in March of 
1953, Dr. Carmichael made a second visit to 
Bucknell and had the opportunity of discuss- 
ing the matter with a large group of Faculty 
members. As a result of this visit. Dr. Car- 
michael recommended to his board that a 
grant of $25,000, to be paid over a Zyi year 
period, be made in support of the University 
Course. In May the grant was authorized by 
the Board and the matter became official on 
July 20. 

This support will now enable the Univer- 
sity to expand the course from one semes- 
ter to four, thus giving the student a better 
opportunity to orient his knowledge witli 
that of other fields. A university is not un- 
like a department store, with the salesmen 
and customers of one department having lit- 
tle knowledge of the values offered by other 
departments. The bigger the university, the 
greater the confusion. 

One of the items that the grant now facili- 
tates is the engagement of a professor who 
is at home in the sciences as well as the 
humanities. Though 38 members of the Fac- 
ulty, representing 18 departments of the Uni- 
versity, have had a hand in the teacliing of 
the course, few have had enough time re- 
cently to equip themselves to discuss, with 
sureness, matters outside their own fields. 

In communication with Dr. Carmichael, 
the University has been seeking for some 
time, a man who is particularly suited to the 
questions of integrations in the sciences and 
their relation to the humanities. They have 
finally engaged Dr. Irving I'olonoff, whom 
Professor Charles liendel. Chairman of the 
Philosophy Department of Yale University, 
cliaracterized as a "natural" for this position. 
"It is rare," wrote Profcs.sor Mendel, "to 
have a call for a man with precisely these 
qualifications." Dr. Polonoff trained at Mc- 
(;ill, Edinburgh and Vale after having stud- 
ied science at Sir George Williams College 

and having done technical work in science. 
Dr. Polonoff has continued his applied sci- 
ence while taking his doctorate in the history 
and pliilosophy of science. 

So that other members of the Faculty may 
participate more fully in the program, a 
"Faculty Seminar" on the integrative educa- 
tion is being planned for next year. This 
idea, first suggested by a few faculty mem- 
bers, is fully encouraged by Dr. Carmichael 
and is vital to the success of the project. 
With four semesters in which to cover the 
ground, there will be a greater need and op- 
portunity for members of all Departments to 
present the concepts, problems, and methods 
of their fields. 

In order that Bucknell Alumni may have a 
clearer picture of what the University is 
attempting to do in the field of integrative 
education, the Administration is hopeful of 
being able to arrange a demonstration of a 
University Course lecture during Homecom- 
ing Weekend on October 16, 17 and 18. The 
idea, as now tentatively planned, is to have 
Professors Garvin, Martin, and Warren con- . 
duct a class for Alumni on Friday evening, 
October 16. 

Meanwhile, the directors of the University 
Course have been compiling what is believed 
to be the first textbook on the subject of 
integrative education. Considerable time and 
energy have been put into this by-project, 
and it is hoped that negotiations will soon be 
completed for the publication of the book. 
Such a textbook would bring added prestige 
to the University, since it unquestionably 
would be used by many universities through- 
out the country. 

Dedicated as they are to the University 
Course, Professors Garvin, Martin, and War- 
ren undoubtedly would have abandoned their 
idea long ago, had it not been for the con- 
stant encouragement they received from lead- 
ers in the field of education. In 1949 the 
University Course was given a -citation by 
the Foundation for Integrated Education, 
and since the beginning of the program, the 
course has received considerable praise from 
' outstanding educators at other universities. 

Most of these educators spoke from first- 
hand knowledge, since a feature of the pro- 
gram is the engagement of visiting lecturers 
to assist in the course. 

After his experience as a lecturer for and 
observer of the University Course, Profes- 
sor Henry Margenau of the Sloane Physics 
Laboratory of Yale University, said : "Your 
(University Course) plan has . . . solid- 
ity, consistency, and wholeness . . . Any- 
thing so well conceived must not fail." 

Professor Elisco Vivas of Northwestern 
University has written : "What seems to me 
most impressive about the document (ex- 
plaining the basis of the program) is its 
depth and maturity — and both arc qualities 
notorious for their absence in contemporary .^^ 
teaching . . ." 

Perliaps the finest tribute of all came from 
Professor W. H. Werkineistcr, Philosopher 
of Science at the University of Nebraska, 
who .said : "My visit to Bucknell has strong- 
ly reinforced my conviction that our small 
institutions of higher learning have a great 
deal to give their students which the large 
universities do not provide ... If Buck- 
nell can carry through (the expanded pro- 
gram of the University Course), liucknell is 
sure to make educational history. The Uni- 
versity Course (program) should become a 
model for oilier inslilulions." 


Greetings rrom tne 

NeT\^ Alumni Presiaent 

Alumni Weekend at Bucknell hrought forth anew corfs of officers 
to reflace the most efficient retiring ones. As the new President of the General 
Alumni Association, I am well aware that following in the stefs of such ex- 
cellent fredecessors as have held this office %vill he a tremendous task. I hofe 
I may measure uf in a small degree to the efficiency they displayed. I shall need 
helf from all of you. With your assistance lue can keef Bucknell's fine Alumni 
Spirit going and growing. 

The Commencement luncheon, with over WOO present, xvas an inspiring 
sight. The Alumni Fund, higger than ever with help from the fathers and more 
and more alumni giving, is a healthy sign for Bucknell. The Alumni Service 
Award, the democratic process of electing our Alumni Trustees, are steps in 
the progress of Bucknell. Dr. Hildreth, Buck Shott, Ray Irwin and others 
share in the credit for all of these luith a deep how to Ken Slifer for his fine 
work as President of the Alumni Association for the past two years. 

Ken has a lot of advantages on me. fust to mention a few, he is a whole 
foot taller, weighs ahout fifty pounds more than I and he doesn't wear dresses. 
Sooooo, if 1 am going to succeed a great guy such as Ken I'd appreciate it very 
much if you'll help me in these specific ways: 

1 . Talk Bucknell! Let everyone know what a grand place it is so they will 
xvant to send their children and their friends' children to Bucknell. Let your 
local high school know you are glad to tell prospective students ahout Bucknell. 

2. Attend Alumni Cluh meetings and if there is none, form one, he it near 
or far from Bucknell. Do your share to keep these meetings interesting. 

3. Give to the Alumni Fund as you give to the Red Cross, the Boy Scouts 
and Community Chest. The Spirit of Giving to Bucknell is the important thing. 
It's a good habit. 

4. Visit Bucknell when you can, on Alumni Day in June, at Homecoming 
or any time. It makes that Bucknell Spirit closer and dearer. 

Let's make a few Alumni touchdowns in these things. It will he fun doing 
it and Bucknell memories will keep you younger. So let's go Alumni. Re- 
memher it's 

"On Bisons down the field, it's Bucknell today" and everyday in the life of 

a true Bucknellian. 

Thank you. I'm grateful.

Mathieson '20 Named Fund Chairman 

Announcement was made at Homecoming Weekend by Mrs. Emily Devine Kelly 
that Andrew R. Mathieson '20 had accepted appointment as chairman of the Bucknell 
Alumni Fund Committee. 

Andy becomes the third chairman of the fund since its establishment in 1948 
when Kenneth W. Slifer '26 became the first fund committee chairman. After three 
years service John Worth '37 became chairman and served until the appointment of 
Andy Mathieson. 

Andrew R. Mathieson '20 

Long an ardent worker in University and alumni affairs, Andy brings to his new 
position a successful record of achievement in many industrial and charitable enter- 
prises. Since his student days he has distinguished himself by service to the University 
through alumni local club activities in Youngstown, New York and Pittsburgh. Follow- 
ing a distinguished athletic career in basketball, track and tennis it was only natural that 
Andy should become an active worker in the Bucknell Athletic Council on which he 
served as a member and as president of the group, resigning the later position upon 
his election as an alumni member of the Bucknell Board of Trustees for a five-year 
term in 1944. His "sabbatical" from the Board of Trustees was relatively short, how- 
ever, for he was again elected as a board member in December 1951 and upon the 
death of Dr. S. Dale Spotts '18 was made chairman of the important Committee on 
Alumni Relations. He also serves on the committees of Instruction and Public Relations. 

A pioneer worker in the Alumni Fund Program at Bucknell he has declared his 
intention of bringing the financial needs of the University before every alumnus to 
encourage regular annual giving to the fund on the "living" endowment principle. 

His service to community organizations is as distinguished as his record of alumni 
activities. He served for the last three years as chairman of the Board of Directors of 
the Pittsburgh Chapter of the American Red Cross, is presently chairman of Eastern 
Area Advisory Committee American Red Cross, member of the Board of Directors of 
the Hospital Service Association of Pittsburgh, and trustee of the Si.xth Presbyterian 
Church of Pittsburgh. 

His business career with United States Steel Corporation began immediately after 
graduation. After serving in the Youngstown and Homestead district plants of Car- 
negie Steel Company, he became Personnel Director of the company in 1927. In 1934 
he was advanced to assistant to the Vice-President— Industrial Relations, United States 
Steel Corporation, New York, and upon the formation of the United States Steel 
Corporation of Delaware in 1938, he returned to Pittsburgh in a similar capacity. He 
was made Salary Administration Supervisor of the Delaware Corporation in 1942 and 
was elected President and Treasurer of the United States Steel and Carnegie Pension 
Fund, which administers the pensions and insurance plans for employees of United 
States Steel Corporation and subsidiaries, in May 1950. 

He married Margaret Wray in 1924. Their sor. Andrew Wray Mathieson earned 
his bachelor's degree from Bucknell in 1950 and his master's degree in industrial 
administration at Carnegie Institute of Technology. "Drew", as he was named on the 
campus, is, like his father, a member of Sigma Chi fraternity. At present he is an* 
ensign in the Na\'y attached to the Bureau of Ships and is located at the New York 
Ship Building Company yard at Camden, N. J. Andy and his charming wife, Peggy, 
live at 1458 Greystone Drive, Pittsburgh 6, Pa.

BUCKXELL'S football loss to Temple, 
27-21, failed to dampen the spirit of the 
Homecoming fans in their enjoj^ble re- 
unions with old friends and classmates. 

The first feature of the weekend was the 
Homecoming parade held Saturday morning 
on the streets of Lewisburg. The parade, in 
addition to sorority and fraternity floats. 
presented visiting bands, local floats, and 
officials of various organizations.

will." He introduced Dr. William Toni- 
linson. vice president of Temple, who 
brought the official greetings of the Uni-

The Doctors Met 

IV/rORE tlian 40 Bucknell Alumni and their 
•^'-'- wives attended a $50-a-pIate dinner at 
the Otzinachson County Club in Milton on 
Friday evening, Oct. 16, and thereby contrib- 
uted $3,700 to the University's eft'ort to re- 
model its Biology Building, Taylor Hall. 

The Medical Alumni also voted to make 
the affair an annual one as a means of pro- 
viding regular support to the Biology De- 
partment, and to form an organization to 
assist the University in other ways. 

The dinner was planned by Dr. William 
F. Darkes '27, of Orwigsburg, Pa., who 
served as Toastmaster and Chairman of the 
afifair. In suggesting that the Medical Alum- 
ni of the University form an organization. 
Dr. Darkes pointed out that the University 
needed their support in ways other than 
monetary in sui'h problems as curricula, the 
planning of buildings and laboratories, and 
the placement of graduates. 

And the Lawyers Too 

TX/rORE than 100 Alumni, undergraduates

summing up at the conclusion of the discus- 


Buckiiell's 1953 football season has been 
anything but pleasant for most interested ob- 
servers. One win and eight straight defeats 
are reminiscent of the 1948 season. 

But though the record is poor, the team 
itself has not been that bad. Only two op- 
ponents really outclassed the Bisons — Holy 
Cross and Delaware. The other games could 
have gone either way, but unfortunately, 

Every college has its ups and downs so far 
as football is concerned, and this year has 
been a real downer. But it w-ill not take too 
much to have a better season next year ( two 
wins, to be exact). And next year should be 
an improvement, for our sophomore backs 
have had a bit of experience, and a few boys 
up from the freshman team should help. 

The Herd opened 1953 in fine style, easily 
overpowering Buffalo, 35-6. The next week, 
an aroused Muhlenberg upset the Bisons, 18- 
13. Then the Lawrencemen flew to Holy 
Cross to absorb a 40-0 lacing at the hands of 
the Crusaders. This game really illustrated 
our poor pass defense. 

The fourth game was the Homecoming af- 
fair with Temple. It was a thrilling contest, 
but the Owls' passing proved our undoing, 
27-21. Next came a greatly improved 
Lafayette which edged the Herd, 7-6, in a 
contest which should have been Bucknell's. 
Lehigh took to the air in the sixth contest to 
down the Bisons, 20-6. Colgate used the 
same offensive pattern to beat Bucknell, 19- 
12 in a hard-played ball game. Gettysburg's 
undersized speedsters and a splendid quarter- 
back named Gagliardi gave us the business, 
26-13, and then Delaware completed the sea- 
son with a 34-13 thumping a la aerials. 

Basketball Prospects 
Look Brighter 

Basketball practice has begun in full swing 
and Coach Ben Kribbs is hopefully preparing 
his hard-working regulars for their 20-game 
schedule which opens Dec. 5 against Lehigh 

Five members of last year's varsity, three 
of them starters, are returning along with a 
crop of newcomers up from last year's fresh- 
man team. 

It seems safe to predict that the Herd will 
at least equal and probably better last year's 
unsensational 3-16 record. But the real key 
to the future lies with this year's fresliman 
team which is known to possess talent that 
can be developed. 

We don't mean to write this year off as 
"nothing from nowhere" for tlie varsity will 
be capable of pulling off a few surprises of 
its own. Jim Poff, of Wilkes-Barre, our 
leading ball player last year until injured 
early in the season, has had an operation on 
his knee and appears fit once again. 

Another senior is Barry Parker, of Mt. 
Holly, N. J., who led the team in scoring 
last year. 'Two steady juniors are Dick 
Bradway and Herb Cox, both of Pittsburgh. 
Dick Johnson, a junior from Plainfield, N. J., 
rounds out the five returnees. 

Two sophomores who should aid the regu- 
lars and maybe unseat two of them are Dick 
Guttermuth, of Nortlt Bergen, N. J., and 
Ted Groom, of Arlington, Va., die latter a 

6-5 stringbean.

Tennis Conference 

Bucknell was the scene of the First Middle 
Atlantic Collegiate Athletic Conference ten- 
nis championships, Oct. 22, 23 and 24. 
Swarthmore swept to victory with Lehigh 
finishing second and Bucknell third in the 
eleven team tourney. 

The tournament was held in the fall rath- 

er than next spring because of scheduling 
difficulties, and was hailed by all in atten- 
dance as a splendid success. A great deal of 
credit should go to Tennis Coach Hank Pe- 
ters for his work as tournament director. 
The entire program was well organized and 
functioned efficiently. 

Swarthmore, Lehigh and Bucknell dom- 
inated the early matches in both singles and 
doubles, but the invaders from Philadelphia 
had too much all-around class for the Engi- 
neers and the Bisons. Their two singles en- 
tries met in the finals and their doubles team 
defeated Lehigh for the championship in that 

Bucknell entered Al Holton, senior from 
Pelham Manor, N. Y., and Jack Laird, jun- 
ior from Short Hills, N. J. Holton got to 
the semi-finals before being dropped by 
Parker Hall of Swarthmore, 6-1, 6-3. Tim 
Coss, who won the singles title, dumped 
Laird in the quarter finals, 6-1, 6-0. 

Poff (number se\en) and Barry Parker (number 
ten) ward off Juniata's defenders as tliey prepare 
to leap for the ball. Tliough this photograph 
was taken last season, Poff and Parker should be 
the mainstays of this year's team.

guests gathered for luncheon at Washington, 
Pa., during the recent Pennsylvania Baptist 
Convention. Buck Shott, alumni secretary,

Mrs. Angelette Tilden Coulston, known to 
almost everyone in Lancaster, Texas, as 
Grandma Coulston, died there on Tuesday, 
September IS, one week after celebrating her 
91st birthday. 

Mrs. Coulston, the last surviving member 
of the Institute Qass of 1883 was active until 
shortly before her death, taking an interest 
in civic, religious and political affairs. She 
was an active alumnae correspondent of 
ly awaited the football results. 

Mrs. Coulston was born in 1862 in Steuben 
County, New York, the daughter of Alanson 
Tilden, an Army chaplain who offered the 
prayer at Abraham Lincoln's funeral. In 1883 
she married William J. Coulston of the Col- 
lege Class of 1883 and followed a busy life 
as wife of a Baptist minister until his death 
in 1938. 

She is survived by two daughters, two 
sons, six grandchildren and six great-grand- 

Library Receives 
Thacher Manuscripts 

The first two items in a proposed collec- 
tion of original works by Bucknell Univer- 
sity Alumni were donated to the Ellen Clarke 
Bertrand Library by Russell L. Thacher, Jr., 
a member of the Class of 1941. 

Mr. Thatcher, an associate editor of Omni- 
book Magazine, sent the original manuscripts 
of two recent novels. The Captain and The 
Tender Age, pubHshed in 1951 and 1952, re- 
spectively, by The MacMillan Company. The 
former deals with life on an LST and the 
latter with the problems of a 17-year-old. 
Both books were well received by critics and 
public alike. 

The Captain, Mr. Thatcher's first novel, 
was somewhat autobiographical in nature 
since after graduation from Bucknell, he 
spent five years in the U. S. Navy as the 
Commander of an LST. 

At Bucknell, Mr. Thatcher was a Dean's 
List student and editor of L'AgeiuSa. He is 
currently living at Ridgewood, N. J., where 
he and his wife cope with small sons, Mi- 
chael and Christopher between books.

Dr. Blake Dies 

It is with a sense of great loss that we 
announce the sudden and unexpected death, 
on October 2, of Dr. Wainwright Donald 
Blake, associate professor of psychology at 
Bucknell since 1945. Professor Blake was a 
graduate of St. Lawrence University and 
qualified for the doctorate at the University 
of Missouri. 

In recent years he had become interested 
in the psychology of adults and old age and 
had done extensive research on this subject. 
At the time of his death he was at work 
preparing a report based on a survey made 
among members of the Emeritus Club of 
Bucknell during the alumni weekend of 1953. 

A frequent contributor to journals in his 
field. Dr. Blake was thoroughly respected by 
his colleagues. His life was honest and up- 
right in all respects. A kindly, gentle, ge- 
nially humorous man, he will be greatly 

The sympathy of the University and his 
former students is extended to Mrs. Blake, 
who has taken an active part in campus and 
community affairs as well as to Mary and 
Robert, students at the University, and Don- 
ald, now studying in Stockholm. 

Prepayment Plan 

Bucknell's Prepayment Plan has 
been in effect for 15 years and is 
considered to be a desirable way for 
families of young Bucknellians to 
prepare years in advance for the fu- 
ture college expenses of their sons 
and daughters. The advantages of 
avoiding a concentrated four-year 
financial burden are obvious. If you 
wish to study the Prepayment Plan, 
the Alumni Office will be glad to send 
you a full description of how it oper- 
ates upon your request. 

Doc Hoskins 111 

Alumni who were on the campus at the 
turn of the century will be sorry to learn 
of the illness of George (Doc) Hoskins, 
former football coach. 

Doc Hoskins, who is 89, is reported in 
serious condition at the General Hospital, 
Cincinnati suffering from pneumonia and a 
heart condition. 

He was a coach of the Bucknell football 
teams from 1899 to 1906. His teams won 45 
games, lost 35 with five ties. Until his re- 
tirement IS years ago he was a trainer for 
the Cincinnati Reds baseball team. 

Lambda Chi Alpha 
Cornerstone Laid 

During Homecoming Weekend almost 300 
members of Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity 
attended the cornerstone laying for the new 
stone house being constructed on the cam- 
pus. The new house is located opposite the 
Ellen Clarke Bertrand Library and is ex- 
pected to be ready for occupancy soon after 
the first of the year. 

The new home will accommodate 34 stu- 
dents and there will be dining room facilities 
for about 70. Malcolm dinger '26 drew 
the plans for the structure. 

Dr. Daniel A. Poling, member of the 
Board of Trustees of the University, editor, 
novelist and leader in religious and civic 
movements, was the principal speaker at 
the dinner held on the evening of Home- 
coming. Harry B. Weaver '14, first presi- 
dent of the Lambda Clii Alpha Chapter, 
acted as toastmaster at the dinner, which 
was arranged by Si Morgan '21. 


Bucknell Alumni Census of 1953 

Editor's Xote — This is the fifth of a series being published in The Bucknell Alumnus 
to show the geographic distribution of Bucknell Alumni. The present article reports the 
census of 1953. 

The accompanying map shows the state-by-state distribution of the 15,303 former stu- 
dents of Bucknell Universitj- with known addresses. The count was made in October 1953 
and includes the graduates of Tune of tliis year. The state list shown under the map 
includes the comparable census for October 1952. About 10% of our Bucknellians move 
each year and tell Alumni Headquarters of their new address. Another 5% move and 
leave no forwarding address. Experience shows that about 250 copies of this issue of The 
Bucknell Alumxus will be returned to Alumni Headquarters as undeliverable. We can 
improve that position by being sure to tell Alumni Headquarters when and where we move 
and inform the office about Bucknellians who move into our local community. The post 
office department does a splendid job of notifying us about changes of address that they 
have received, but a sizeable amount of tax money could be saved if everyone notified our 
office of a change of address BEFORE moving.

The plan for the Bucknell Alumni Fund is simple. Alumni dues and 
magazine subscriptions have been discontinued. Every alumnus and friend 
of Bucknell is invited to contribute annually to the University for current 
operotions. Each person contributing, no matter what the amount, will be 
listed as a donor in THE BUCKNELL ALUMNUS. 

The amount contributed to the Bucknell Alumni Fund alone this past 
year equals the return on more than half a million dollars of invested en- 
dowment. By their increasing support of the Bucknell Alumni Fund, alumni 
and friends can make it more and more a substantial "living endowment." 

In addition to the Fund contri- 
butions, members of the class 
contributed to the Capital 
Funds of the University a total 
of $25.00.

A letter from Nellie Goddard Stein- 
hilper in reply tf) a ro:qucst for news 
shows that Nell still retains her youth- 
ful humility. The announcement of 
the death of her kind husband, Anthony 
Steinhilpcr '05, came as a surprise. All 
members of the class express to her 
their sympathy. The letter in Nell's 
exact words follows: 

A« you know. Tony and I were married In 1007 
and w- had (orty-llvc yeafH of life tOKCther. Dur- 
ln(( thla time we amiiimcd not a fortune but a fam-

Wllklnnon. 1.1. tfl David Ooddnrd Stelnhllper, born 
Ian! October, 

When my husband was ready to retire we bought 
a big, old-fashioned house in Hackettstown. A 
pretty little town, beautifully situated in the hills 
of Northern New Jersey, that we have enjoyed for 
the beautiful scenery and the friendly people. 

Tony's health had not been good for some time 
and just a year ago (September 10, 1952) he passed 
away. He did nothing spectacular, achieved no 
fame, wrote no booics. acquired no great wealth, 
but it has been heart-warming to receive from his 
associates in business, in civic worlc and the church 
so many expressions of respect and affection for 
one who "died justly, loved mercy, and walked hum- 
bly with his God." 

As for me. I expect to keep on living here where 
we made so many friends. I should like to get up to 
Bucknell sometime. We often spoke of it and vaguely 
hoped to be there for our fiftieth, but it was not so 
to be. 

A note came from John B. Smiley at 

the time he was about to go to the sea- 
shore for a vacation. His statement 
that he always tries to come back to 
Lewisburg at least once a year puts 
to shame some who live within a few 
miles. He says that when he is in 
Lewisburg he spends a few hours on 
the campus and reviews the pictures 
of earlier years that hang pleasantly on 
memory's wall. He mentioned the in- 
spiration he received by gazing at the 
entrance gates, the Class Memorial of 
the Class of 1905. 

John C, Sanders, one of the success- 
ful ministers of the class, is too modest 
to tell about his achievements. For- 
tunately, he sent three recent church 
bulletins to inform his classmates of 
his present status. 

A pamphlet concerning the minutes 
of the last session of the Synodical 
Council of the Mercersburg Synod con- 
tains this information: 

"Rev. John C. Sanders, living in suburban Cham- 
bersburg. Pa., who was made Pastor Emeritus by his 
last parish, after serving it for 26 years, was re- 
elected as the Secretary of the Mercersburg Synod 
of the Evangelical and Reformed Church at its re- 
cent meeting." 

Requests for news are being an- 
swered very slowly.

1955. Keep that savings account active.

The Rev. Havard Griffith died in Har- 
risburg, September 10 at the age of 74. 
Havard, who attended Bucknell Acade- 
my before graduation from the college 
and later earned his master's degree in 
1910 at Bucknell, was trained for the 
ministry at Rochester Theological Sem- 
inary. He had been a preacher in the 
Baptist denomination since 1900 serv- 
ing churches at Port Alleghany, 
Geneva, N, Y.; Monongahela, Newark, 
O., and Bradford before serving the 
First Baptist Church of Harrisburg. 

Rev. Griffith is survived by his wife, 
the former Pearl Etnoyer of High Spire, 
a daughter, Mrs. O. Jack Elliott (Mary 
Elizabeth Griffith '41), a son, Havard, 
Jr. '40. 

Rev. George A. Riggs spoke to the 
Missionary Society of the First Baptist 
Church of Sunbury about his mission 
work in Puerto Rico. He previously had 
been in Cuba, then was sent to Puerto 
Rico to build chapels.

A memorandum — Saturday, June 12, 
1954, the 45th reunion of the Class of 
1909 (University and Seminary). 
Whclhcc you have never, scklom, or of- 
ten been back on the c;)mpus o! our 
alma mater, you should let nothing, 
short of utter inability, keep you from 
returning next June, Come every- 


body, once more, to our beloved campus 
on June 12, 1954. Send a letter to your 
reporter — name and address above — 
saying you are planning to answer 
"present" at 1909 roll call on that day. 
A year ago Dr. J. Earle Edwards and 
his wife came to St. Petersburg, Fla., 
to live. They reside at 1111— 26th Ave- 
nue, S., where they are eager to wel- 
come all their friends. Many of us re- 
member him as he entered Bucknell 
with our class and appears with us in 
the 1909 L'Agenda. He was obliged 
to drop out of our class because of ill- 
ness and was gi'aduated with the Class 
of 1910. 

It is rumored that Charles E. Hilbish 
has resigned as superintendent of 
Northumberland County schools to 
take effect June 1954. At that time he 
will have completed 20 years in this 
capacity— said to be the longest term 
in this office in the history of North- 
umberland County — 5 four-year con- 
secutive terms. Is this correct, Charles? 
Anyhow, send us a sketch of all this in 
more detail, please. 

George Bailets and wife Ruth again 
left St. Petersburg last summer for four 
months. They spent a month in New 
York and New Jersey and three months 
in Sunbury, with his 93 year-old 

Howard and Sarah Walters Headland 
also spent from July to September in 
Pennsylvania and western New York. 
Whenever they are in these localities 
they aim to see as many of Sarah's 
classmates as they can. This year was 
not very satisfying. They stopped m 
Lock Haven to have a word with Matt 
Haggerty and Olive, but found them — 
not at home. In Reynoldsville, Amy 
Bollinger entertained them with a de- 
licious lunch. Then Amy and Sarah 
spent most of the afternoon talkmg of 
days gone by. On the campus Guy 
Payne and his wife were busy as usual 
in the College Inn. 

lola Quandt writes that last August 
she and four others had a mighty fine 
vacation in Sequoia National Par k , 
Calif. With the altitude over 6.000 feet, 
they were not hiking much. Her ac- 
count of their skirmishes with a bear 
which was after their food, and, in- 
deed, one day, got milk, sandwiches, 
and cookies, was exciting. 

Your reporter would like to hear 
from all of her classmates and especial- 
ly from Margaret Curtin, Richard Dar- 
lington, Dr. Herman G. Difenderfer, 
Bertha Eaches, and Harry Eakley.

Here it is time for my report, due 
Monday, November 9th. The last time 
I was a couple of days late so "Buck" 
declared it a "hang-over" and published 
it in the "little paper rag" (Ed. Note: 
If more alumni contributed to the 
Alumni Fund the "little paper rag" 
could be a magazine) the next month. 
I didn't care because I felt the reunion 
guys should have first place. Do you 
know Buck is getting mean (Ed. Note; 
Correction, please, meaner) just like 
Frank Davis— "Don't do this" — "Don't 
do that." 

Dr Howard Johnson, the eighth pas- 
tor of North Frankford Baptist Church 
of Philadelphia, closed his pastorate on 
his nth anniversary June 30. He is a 
graduate of Bucknell, Columbia, and 


North Dakota Universities and of 
Crozer Theological Seminary. He is a 
past president of the Frankford Minis- 
terium, a vice president of the Baptist 
Union of Philadelphia and vicinity. He 
is a member of Phi Delta Kappa, edu- 
cational fraternity, Tau Chapter of U. 
of P. He has served Baptist pastorates, 
led conferences in summer youth pro- 
grams, and has taught college. Howard 
is now residing at Forked River, a lake 
resort of N. J. He will be engaged in 
writing and part time public speaking. 
Well, Pat Schrieber has retired and 
Howard Johnson semi-retired. That 
just makes me think. Did you ever hear 
of a housewife retiring? If so, let me 
know. Today's housewife is a combina- 
tion cook, vacuum pilot, purchasing 
agent, business manager, interior deco- 
rator, seamstress, hostess and public 
relations counsel for the entire family 
with a little washing, ironing, dusting, 
dish washing, window washing, and 
baby sitting thrown in. 

Pop thought he had to retire last 
March but on account of his "youthful 
appearance" the company gave him an 
extension of one year. When he does 
retire I am going to have a separate 
cage built for him because I just can't 
stand a man hanging around my kitch- 
en, opening the refrigerator, lifting the 
lids off my cooking utensils, in other 
words sticking his nose in my business. 
If this plan doesn't work out I'll either 
apply for admission to the old ladies' 
home or hire a maid. 

Last year a grandmothers' day was 
set aside in October. This year I didn't 
hear nor see a word about it. Anyway, 
the smart modern grandmother doesn't 
hid the fact that she has grandchildren 
— she advertises it. She buys herself a 
"grandmother bracelet," with each new 
addition to the family she adds a charm; 
a heart for a girl, a circle for a boy. 
Baby's name is engraved on one side of 
the disc, the birth date on the other. 
There are also grandmother books 
which are quite charming. Now all 
you kids who have children see that 
"granny" gets either a book or a 

By the way I've already asked Santa 
to bring me a rocking chair. Not that 
I'm an "old rockin' chair granny" be- 
cause I'm still in the "lovable sixties," 
but when I reach the "sensible seven- 
ties" as Hal Boyle says, I want to be 

Dave McNeal is still pulling them in 
for drunken driving. The other day I 
saw in the paper that he had hauled 
someone in for knife throwing. You 
know Dave is Justice of the Peace at 

Had a card from Bruce Butt '16 say- 
ing that he enjoyed my column. I wish 
the 1912ers would write their approval 
or disapproval. 

Now a prayer for Thanksgiving! 

"Thank Thee. God, for love that crowds each day. 
And thank Thee, too, for simple things we find 

along the way. 
For little children romping 'round. 
For bird song, gay and happy sound. 

Through sun and rain. 
For friends to greet, loved ones near. 
For songs to share, perchance a tear. 
For strength to work, for gift to play. 
For fireside at the c'ose of day 

And candlelight again! 
Thank Thee, God, for all the lovely, simple things 
That each dav brings- 

— Eleanor Frey." 

I am passing on to all of you a Christ- 
mas wish that Howard Johnson sent to 
me last year; 

"This is my Christmas greeting and wish for you. 
It has no value in the market and no great art in 
the making. But if it will mean to your heart what 

it means to mine at this Yuletide season, there will 
be in it a worth above money value and a beauty 
that art alone never gives. 

I earnestly wish that every good thing brought 
into life by Christ may be yours; that you may have 
a heart of cheer, a spirit of hope and a life of ser- 
vice every day in 1954," 

From all the Houseknechts a Happy 
Christmas Season and kindly include in 
your New Year's resolutions that you 
will send me some news. 

In the words of Tiny Tim, God Bless

characteristics of classmates, including 
facts about our reunion of which 
Marian was happy to hear. For a time 
she was not in desired good health, but 
she has recovered remarkably well and

district plant superintendent. He and

At the chapel exercises on October 
28 our Rev. Dr. George Middleton was 
the speaker. Changed but little in ap- 
pearance after all the years since grad- 
uation, he was typically George, bril- 
liant in his address as we remember 
him on the hill. His topic "Seeing What 
Isn't There" held to close attention the 
packed audience in Beaver Memorial 
Methodist Church. After the service, 
Harold Shaffer and this reporter proud- 
ly shook George's hand, met Mrs. Mid- 
dleton and their son, Lee, now a sopho- 
more at Bucknell. It was an unforget- 
table hour indeed. As mentioned in a 
recent ALUMNUS, George is pastor of 
the Calvary Baptist Church, Rochester, 
N. Y., in his thirty-second year of ser- 
vice there. 

Admission of distress — six letters

Have the other 27 been consignee! to 
the waste basket, pigeoned-holed in

coincide with this particular classmate 
who writes, "Perhaps everyone is like 
me — so swallowed up in mediocrity 
that we feel we have nothing to add- 
in middle age we become lethargic. My 
life is so routine that it is bound to be 
dull. Rise at 6:15 a. m., pack lunches, 
make beds, tear off to teach school, put 
in a hard day, return to the domicile, 
go through the ritual of dinner dishes, 
catch up on the evening news, check 
the bedding-down of offspring, and drop 
into bed. Now see, there is absolutely 
no newsprint in my history." 

Agreed — we can't all be Julius La

Homecoming may not have provided 
the most satisfactory game as far as 
Bucknell was concerned, but it was a 
very successful day for the members of 
the Class of '29 who returned and 
joined us in the morning meeting or 
the luncheon at the gymnasium. 

"Turk" Jones, Jessie Fielding Eyster, 
Charles Kalp, Martha VonNeida Water- 
bury, Clyde and Dorothy Lemon Bail- 
ey, Kenneth Bidlack, Allen Rarig, and 
"Vic" Meyer all showed and were 
really pepped up for our Silver Re- 
union next June. Of course, President 
Paul and your reporter were there. 

The letters and cards which have 
come in response to Paul's recent letter 
have shown the true "Spirit of '29." 
From Houston, Texas, Helen Myerly 
Loman writes that she is enthusiastic 
about our reunion and is still a loyal 
Bucknellian although she transferred 
and was graduated from Penn State! 

Horace "Hop" Sheppard is now liv-

that we can count on him to contact 
the other '29ers in northern New 

Dr. Herbert Smith, Needham, Mass., 
hopes that his clerical duties will per- 
mit his being with us in June. 

Bill Mahood, who is living in Califor-

as he has been planning the trip for the 
last five years. 

Remember Bucky Harris? Our dis- 
tinguished member is now a doctor on

Kingston, and sends word that he will 
see us on June 12. 

Ken Rounsley, who has had a dis- 
tinguished career with the Nav.y and 
now with the Army engineers, is al- 
ready planning to get away from his 
duties to join us. 

And again we hear from Calif! Dick 
Nicholson, who is living in Palo Alto, 
hopes to get back after 25 ,years. Why 
not charter a plane for '29-ers from 
Calif? "Bucknell, here I come," 

Gene Klinger, whoso sons are attend-

promised that he will bring the two 
younger boys along next June, as he

the Sylvania plant in Warren. The 
Wilsons have five children; Marjorie, 
19, is majoring in physical education 
and science at Slippery Rock Teachers 
College; Bobby, a freshman at Lycom- 
ing College; Dick, 12, and the twins 
Donald and Douglas are 8. Margaret, 
an excellent student in mathematics, 
seems to have no difficulty in keeping 
shirts, socks, birthdays, and problems 
concerning five children in hand. 

Linda Lutz, small daughter of Mr.

John G. Mathews is still with the 
MacMillan Co. and lives from Septem-

lage, Stamford, Conn. The rest of the 
time he and his wife Mildred are on 
board their cruiser and likely to be 
anywhere in Long Island Sound. The 
class of 1933 is glad to claim that cruis- 
er, Johnnie! 

Recently Muriel Marshall Miller 
walked off the next to the bottom step 
of her cellar steps at her home and cut 
her arm in fourteen places with a 
broken glass bottle losing a newly 
canned bottle of peaches. Who said 
these college girls aren't homemakers? 
And with homemaking she combines 
creative music. You should have heard 
her last December play an original 


composition in adoration of the Virgin 
Mary at the Christmas meeting of the 
American Association of University 

Walking down the main street in 
Bloomsburg, I spied Jane Williams in a 
passing car. I rushed into the street. 
The car stopped for a red light, she 
waved. The light changed. I heard 
her call, "we're moving from Nanticoke 
to Pittsburgh." Hadn't seen her in 
twenty years. She looked the same, 
which was always pretty good. 


Twenty Years Ago — 1933 
If any Bucknell student intends to drink 
hard liquor, made legal on December 5 by

June 12, 1954 is the big day, Alumni 
Day and our 20th Reunion. Plan your 
vacations or leaves so you may see the 
many changes to Bucknell's 300 acres 
and have a bang-up time too. Bring 
your wives, husban(is, sweethearts and 
youngsters. Let them share the fun 
and thrills you'll get renewing acquain- 
tances and reliving the joys of college 
days at America's most beautiful cam- 
pus. Maybe you've been back as I 
have then I needn't tell you how won- 
derful it still is but if you haven't 
you're missing a great deal and so are 
your loved ones. Last June I had a 
wonderful time at Bill's 20th seeing 
those friends we both had in the Class 
of '33, meeting their families and in- 
troducing our children to the campus, 
now we're waiting and hoping that 
enough of it seeped in so when they are 
ready for college it will be Bucknell. 
Eddie Myers, our genial class prexy, is 
busy planning along with Buck Shott 
so our 20th will be The Reunion. 

Hope you've missed our class news 
enough to write even if only to bawl 
me out. Seems tho, I was ill and spent 
some time in the hospital and altho I 
can't show you my scars was unable 
to write the "begging for news letters" 
that class reporters do. 

Harry C. Fithian, Jr. is the new presi- 
dent of the Lycoming County Alumni 
Club. Why not help him do a better 
job if you're in his area^-get to those 

Edward C. Myers is now assistant 
vice president in the industrial rela- 
tions dept. of U. S. Steel Corp. Eddie 
has been affiliated with U. S. Steel since 
graduation. He resides in Pittsburgh 
with his wife Edna Cleckner Myers '33 
and their lovely daughters Wendy and 
Sandra at 1236 Murray Hill Ave. 

Lee A. Grove is now a Lt. Colonel, 
having graduated from the regular 
course. Command and General Staff 
College, Fort Worth. At present he is 
an instructor of Command and General 
Staff subjects (GI) at the Medical Field 
Service School, Brooke Army Medical 
Center, Fort Sam Houston. Lee and his 
family live at 619 Byrnes Dr., San An- 
tonio, Tex. 

Got a wonderful letter from Vince 
Wayland who is minister at the Church 
of Christ (Federated) in Warner, N. H., 
the town Life selected as New En- 
gland's most typical town. He tells of 
the arrival of Kerell Powell Wayland 
on March 10 to join Vince, 12, and 

Cheryl Lynn, 8. Vince taught school 
for 5 years then attended Colgate- 
Rochester Seminary for 3 years, then 
18 months in Ohio with the Baptist 
Home Mission Board; three years as 
minister to the Baptist students, ci- 
vilian protestant chaplain to the V-12 
unit and minister of the Oberlin, Ohio 
Baptist Church. Then nearly five years 
in Pittsburgh before New Hampshire. 
He and his wife Frannie have enjoyed 
every moment of it. Made me think 
when he recalled how we used to sit 
and listen to Dr. Karraker lecture on 
"Imperialism and World Politics." Lit- 
tle did we realize in our ivory tower 
then how important a part it would 
play in our lives. 

Guess that's all for now. If any feel 
noble and would like to volunteer to 
make our 20th reunion the best ever 
please let Eddie Myers know pronto. 
Incidentally don't feel you have to be 
a huge success to write to me. Most 
of us have been plugging away and 
leading average lives; but wouldn't it 
be consolation to read about each 
other? I'm just a housewife with two 
live wire youngsters — busy with P. T. 
A., Girl Scouts, teaching Sunday school, 
absorbing culture at Woman's Club and 
A. A. U. W. and counting silver threads 
among the gold. Bill and I traveled 
to Easton with some friends to see the 
Lafayette game and I must confess I 
saw only old-timers or undergrads. How 
about more of us in-betweeners sup- 
porting our fine coach and his team. 
We can't always win but with more 
alumni at games we could cheer them

Mrs. A. P. L. Peters (Margaret Elea- 
nore Weddell) kills two birds with one 
stone; when her young sons receive 
U. S. dollar currency as gifts she sends 
them as her contribution to the Buck- 
nell Alumni Fund and gives the 
youngsters the equivalent South Afri- 
can currency, thus eliminating ex- 
change charges. Pretty neat move, we 
think, and the fund appreciates the 
thoughtfulness. Peg is married to 
A. P. L. Peters who is an engineer with 
the Morgan Crucible Company Ltd. of

MARCH 1954 




Pictured above is what seems to be a private tussle between Al 
Fenton and Buck Shott. Such is not the case! This is a BIG fight 
— and YOU are in it. Actually, the picture symbolizes a contest being 
waged between the Bucknell University Fathers' Association and the 
Bucknell Alumni Fund. Al, secretary of the Fathers' Association, 
and Buck, director of the Alumni Fund, are just standing in for 
their respective organizations. 

The hassle really started last fund year when the Bucknell Dads 
made a threat to build the Fathers' Loyalty Fund to a higher dollar 
total than the total amount of the Bucknell Alumni Fund. With some 
2200 Fathers competing against 15,000 Alumni, it looked for a time 
as though the Dads would turn the trick. However, the Alumni pulled 
away approaching the wire and came up with a final $21,000 against 
$13,000 for the Dads. 

Thereupon, the Dads decided to issue a formal challenge to the 
Grads and offered the trophy to the fund which shows the greater 
improvement in 1953-54. The most equitable basis for this compe- 
tition seemed to be the percentage of improvement in participation 
between the two funds. 

The trophy has been donated by John D. Knies of Bethlehem, 
vice president of the Fathers' Association. No silver loving cup this. 
A unique combination of cast iron pipe, steel flanges, with steel rods 
for handles, this 25-lb. steel grey pot must be added to the awards 
owned by the Bucknell Alumni Fund, say the Alumni. The Dads are 
just as sure the trophy will be added to their loot. 

Based on results to December 31, the mid-point in the fund 
year, 786 Alumni or 5.3% have enrolled in the Alumni Fund effort 
compared with 2.9% at the same point last year. But the Dads have 
likewise improved their standing, with 4.7% enrolled this year against 
3.1% on the same date last year. 

At first glance it looks as though the Alumni stalwarts are leading 
by a comfortable margin. But the statisticians are quick to point out 
that the Grads are playing at great odds; for each 1% increase the 
Grads must find about 150 nezv givers to the Alumni Fund while the 
Dads can gain 1% with each 23 givers. However, the Grads have a 
veritable army of prospects as compared with the Dads. 

From now until June 30, 1954 Al and Buck will be tugging at 
opposite handles of that trophy and anghng for every tactical advan- 
tage they can muster but the final victory lies with YOU and YOU 
and YOU. Says Buck, "Alumni victory is assured if every Bucknell 
guy and gal who gave last year comes through again and if everyone 
who didn't contribute last year climbs on the band-wagon NOW."

Second Century Program Aided by 
Olin Foundation Gift 

At a special convocation in the Davis Gymnasium on 
Friday, January 15, the University and community were 
thrilled with the electrifying news that a gift from the 
Olin Foundation of $900,000 will permit the early con- 
struction of a new science building to house the depart- 
ments of chemistry, physics, and mathematics. 

The new structure (architect's drawing at top of page) 
will be built of brick along architectural lines similar to 
the other main buildings on the campus. Its location 
will be on College Hill directly opposite the Engineering 
Building. The structure will contain approximately 
600.000 cubic feet. 

Dr. Joseph W. Henderson, acting president and chair- 
man of the Board of Trustees, in accepting the gift in 
the name of the University, pointed out that it reflected 
great credit upon the quality of the college academic 

"Our University has had a splendid reputation in the 
.-.ciences even though operating without the modern facili- 
ties which this grant will make possible," he declared. 

The Olin Foundation, whose headquarters are in 
.Minneapolis. Minn., was established in 19.37 by the late 
I-'ranklin W. f)]\n, well known chemical manufacturer, 
a graduate of Cornell University. A native of Vermont, 
.Mr. Olin moved to the middle west early in his business 
'•areer, where he started building powder mills. He 
ma.ssed wealth, and when in his eighties, set up the 
foundation bearing his name to "provide a program to 
train men for useful living." Ilc' ordcrerl that none of 
the foundation's money be used for jjropagaiida ])ur])Oses, 
and saifl that it should go instead only to cliarity or edu- 
ational organizations. 

Dr. Charles ].. Horn, who is president of the I'"ederal 
Cartridge Corporation as well as being president of the 
Olin Foundation, Inc., marie the jjresentation at the 
smrcial convocation. He pointed out that the ff>unflatioii

Wynn of New York, vice-president of the Foundation. 
A conference with Mr. Wynn followed. Months later 
Mr. Wynn visited Jiuckneil to ins|)ei t our .science facili- 
ties. After much correspondence and several conferences, 
I he I'oiindalion decided to make the grant. In all, the 


negotiations embraced a period covering a year and seven 

Announcement of the gift, largest single contribu- 
tion ever made to Bucknell, came at a special convocation 
attended by more than 2,000 students, teachers and ad- 
ministrative leaders. The new structure will include a 
central auditorium seating 212 students, numerous labora- 
tories, classrooms, offices for staff members and work- 

Of the foundation's $900,000 gift, $125,000 has been 
allocated for the purchase of new equipment to supple- 
ment that now available. 

At present physics classes meet in the basement of 
East College and in a temporary annex ; mathematics 
classes are held in the Annex of 105-year old Taylor 
Hall. The present chemistry building, constructed 60 

years ago, is no longer adequate for present-day needs, 
Dean Coleman pointed out. 

Dayton L. Ranck, vice president and treasurer, told 
the enthusiastic audience that preliminary plans are already 
well under way by J. Frederick Larson, the university 
architect. Construction will begin as soon as possible, 
and the building should be completed for use in Sep- 
tember, 1955. 

Friday's meeting was a surprise convocation, not 
announced to students or faculty until a short time before 
it took place. Persons on the campus said it was the 
first time in the modern-day history of Bucknell that 
such a convocation had been held. 

In the audience were 1,850 students, 140 faculty mem- 
bers and administrative leaders along with wives of fac- 
ulty members and others. 

Progress on the Second Century Program 

The erection of the F. W. Olin Science Building will 
mark the halfway point in the University's Development 
Program for Bucknell's Second Century. The first item 
in this program was the new heating plant, which was put 
into operation in 1949. The second project in the pro- 
gram was completed in 1951, with the erection of the 
Ellen Clarke Bertrand Library. 

It is interesting to note that these first three items have 
been obtained from three difTerent sources. The Heating 
Plant was made possible by a fund-raising campaign 
which produced nearly $800,000 from thousands of Alum- 
ni and Friend ^ of the University. The Ellen Clarke 

Dr. Charles L. Horn, president of the Olin Foundation, Inc., announc- 
ing the S900,000 gift to tlie students and faculty at the special convocation 
on January I.^. 

Bertrand Library was realized through the generosity 
of a small group of individuals, notably the n, ember of 
the Board of Trustees for whom the building is named. 
The F. W. Olin Science Building has come from a private 
foundation because of an alert Alumnus-Administration 
combine that had the LTniversity's future constantly in 

Of the six items originally listed as the goals of the 
Second Century Development Program, three remain to 
be realized. They are a Chapel-Auditorium, a Social 
Science building and additions to the Men's Gymnasium. 
How and when these buildings are obtained will depend 
in large measure on the alertness of every person who has 
ever come to know and love the University. 


In the meantime, more immediate needs face the Uni- 
versity. The most pressing of these are the remodeling 
of Taylor Hall and the erection of a new men's dormi- 
tory. Taylor Hall, the old Academy Building, must be 
completely rebuilt. Originally this job was estimated at 
$200,000, including new equipment. A quiet efifort has 
been made over the past two years to obtain these funds 
and the University is hopeful of being able to start work 
on the building in June, despite the fact that the price 
of the job has risen by $25,000. 

The erection of a new men's dormitory has been the 
subject of a great deal of preliminary planning but the 
decision as to when the building will be started must await 
the completion of the financing plan. 

Preliminary specifications call for the erection of a 
U-shaped building to provide dormitory space for about 
225 men students. Adequate lobby and lounge space 
are included in the plans. A feature of the building will 
be a kitchen and cafeteria suitable for providing food 
service to the occupants of the dormitory. 

The job is not an impossible one, but neither is it 
easy. And more dormitory space for men is a paramount 
need, both from the point of view of study conditions 
and from the point of view of comfort and convenience of 
male students. Last year the University dormitories 
housed 559 men. For far too long there has been double 
occupancy in single rooms. The atmosphere generated 
by present crowded conditions is not conducive to schol- 

These are difficult problems, but the same applied to 
the heating plant, the library and the science building. 
Bucknell has developed too much momentum to stop now. 

Merck & Company, manufacturing chemists of Rah- 
way, N. J. and Danville, have inaugurated the Merck 
Lecture Series at Bucknell which began February 11. The 
seven lectures open to the general public, will be slanted 
towards Bucknell students and personnel of the Merck 
plant at Danville. 

Nineteen pre-medical students of Bucknell University 
have been accepted by medical schools for graduate work 
next fall. Eight of the students will attend Temple 
Medical School, three at Jeft'erson Medical College, and 
the remaining eight will attend other medical schools in 
the United States.

WARFEL. Harry R. '20, Editor 

Letters of -Voii/i Webster 

Xew York : Library Publishers, 1953 

In Xoah Webster: Seboohnaster to Aiiter- 
iea (\936), Professor Warfel established 
himself as an authority on the famous lexi- 
cographer, and in this selection of 188 let- 
ters he is able to point up Webster's place 
in the Post-Revolutionary scene. 

Though Webster (1758-1S43) is justly 
known primarily as a dictionary-maker and 
as a schoolmaster to America, he was also 
a vivid, petulant commentator on the poli- 
tics, the economics, the science, and the re- 
ligion of his day. In 1786 he wrote to 
George Washington : "I must write : it is a 
happiness I cannot sacrifice." By 1843 Web- 
ster the scholar and partisan had happily and 
colorfully written numerous books, maga- 
zine and newspaper articles, and letters. His 
wide reading made him a full man : his vanity 
and choler made him an arrogant writer. 
It is no wonder that one of his contem- 
poraries called him "the critic and cock- 
comb-general of the United States." 

Included in Professor Warfel's edition are 
open and private letters to Madison. Hamil- 
ton. Jefferson, Franklin, and Daniel Web- 
ster. A rabid Federalist, Noah Webster 
wrote to Jefferson a caustic letter reviewing 
the first six months of Jefferson's first term. 
(Webster elsewhere convincingly claims that 
he was among the very first to suggest cer- 
tain doctrines of Federalism). An anti- 
British nationalist, Webster wrote a series of 
polemical letters to Joseph Priestley, whose 
two pamphlets addressed to the inhabitants 
of Xorthumberland, Pennsylvania were con- 
sidered by Webster to be anti-American and 

The letters give an intimate view of the 
difficulties Xoah Webster had to overcome 
before publishing, in 1828, Ait American Dic- 
tionary of the English Language, which Pro- 
fessor Warfel says is "the first monumental 
scholarly work completed by an .'\merican 

In his informative introduction. Professor 
Warfel puts into perspective Webster's con- 
tributions to philology. The introduction 
might well have made clearer, however, that 
by modern standards Webster is hardly a 
linguistic scientist. For example. Webster 
believed Cp. 48) that "Greek. Latin, English, 
and other European languages were all de- 
rived from the same root, the Celtic" ; and 
the learned man was not always aware of 
the best philological work of his contem- 
poraries. He nevertheless was surely the 
best lexicographer of his time, especially in 
the power to define words. 

F'rofcssor Warfel's notes to the letters and 

. the names mentioned in them are useful ; 
my quick test of the accuracy of the two in- 
dices proved successful. His text, though it 
slightly mwlifies the original documents, is 
es.scntially exact. The dedication to Profcs- 
■ T I>co L. Rockwell, his "mentor anrl friend." 

of course appropriate. 

In the Letters, Professor Warfel helps the 

^dcr to know Webster licttcr and to catch 

/mc direct glimpses of the formative years 
after the Revolution.

Alumni Will Vote in April 

On Page 6 you will find the names, pic- 
tures and biographical records of the three 
candidates chosen to stand for election as 
Alumni Trustee to the Board of Trustees of 
Buclcnell Universitj-. One is to be elected 
by the general alumni body in April for a 
term of five years. 

The candidates were carefully chosen from 
a larger group of nominees suggested by lo- 
cal alumni clubs, class presidents, class re- 
porters, fund managers, members of the 
Board of Directors and the Alumni Fund 
Committee, as well as former alumni trustees 
and former presidents of the General Alumni 
Association. \\"ell over 500 alumni were can- 
vassed for suggestions. Furthermore, each 
carried an outline of the procedure for nomi- 
nating a candidate by petition. 

After all suggested candidates have been 
listed the Alumni OfBce prepares a biograph- 
ical record of each candidate. These records 
are examined and discussed by the nine-mem- 
ber Committee for the Selection of Alumni 
Trustee Candidates, following which each 
committee member by secret ballot records 
first, second, third, fourth and fifth choices. 
By weighting the choices on all ballots the 
three top candidates emerge. The candidates 
with their pictures and biographical records, 
then appear in the March issue of THE 
ever}' alumnus with a known address receives 
a postage-free ballot for voting. After 
stud>nng the election procedures at scores of 
colleges, a committee of alumni have come 
to the conclusion that Bucknell's plan is as 
democratic as it can possibly be. Believe it 
or not, there are still some colleges where 
the alumni board selects one candidate and 
submits his name to the Trustees for ap- 
proval and election ! 

Alumni now serving on the Board of 
Trustees through election of that body, but 
who were originally nominated for member- 
ship by the General Alumni Association, in- 
clude: Dr. Harvey F. Smith '94, Robert L. 
Rooke '13, Dr. Mary B. Harris '94, Berkeley 
V. Hastings '13, Dr. Mary M. Wolfe '96, 
William R. White '26, and Andrew R. Math- 
ieson '20. 

Alumni now serving on the Board of Trus- 
tees, on nomination by the General Alumni 
Association, arc Clyde P. Bailey, Esq. '29 
rterm expires 1954) ; Russell E. Boyer '18 
n955) ; Dr. Arthur L. Brandon MA '27 
n956;; Dr. Emma E. Dillon '15 (1957) 
and Dr. Roy E. Nicodcmus '25 (1958). His- 
tory has supplied ample evidence that the 
members of the Board of Trustees, from 
whatever source .selected, serve not the Trus- 
tees, nor the Alumni Association, but the 
University, which is as it should be. 

Vou arc urged to exercise your prerogative 
to vote in a democratic election when you 
receive your ballot in April. Better study 
those biographical records now, for only the 
names and pictures of the candidates can be 
carried on the ballot. The ballot mailing 
will \>c a "double-duty" envelope mailer, pro- 
viding for the return of the voter's ballot 
and a contribution to the Alumni Annual- 
Giving ['rogram in one jKistage-frec enve- 
I'/pc. Alumni do not need to contribute to 
be cligibl'' to vote — this combination mailing 
is planned to save [Kistage and will result in 
a saving of atK<ut $400.00 on the outgoing 
awl return cnvclojics.

DR. FRANKLIN D. JONES '19, D.Sc. '46 

Dr. Franklin D. Jones, as President of the 
Qass of 1919, is leading an all-out effort 
for the 3Sth Reunion of that class in June. 
As a feature of this Reunion, a "35-year 
later" L'Agenda is being assembled, and the 
best contribution that 1919 has ever made 
to the Alumni Fund is coming in. 

After graduating as one of Doc. Brown's 
chemical engineers, Franklin worked for Al- 
lied Chemical and Dye, New Jersey Zinc, du- 
Pont, Merck and Phillips and Jacobs. In 
1938 he organized the agricultural chemical 
department for American Chemical Paint 
Co., manufacturing agricultural specialties. 
While there he pioneered the use of 2-4D and 
similar chemicals as weedkillers, resulting in 
basic patents here and abroad. Nearly a 
hundred U. S. and foreign patents on weed- 
killers, plant hormones, insecticides and chem- 
ical processes have been issued to him. 

In 1946, at the centennial commencement, 
Bucknell conferred the degree of Doctor of 
Science on him. 

Since 1947, Dr. Jones has been a consult- 
ing chemist. Recently he was appointed to 
the consulting staff of General Industries In- 
corporated, an engineering firm of Philadel- 

Franklin's wife is the former Lillian G. 
Butz, a Delaware graduate. They have two 
children, Roger F., a chemical engineer with 
duPont and a graduate of Haverford Col- 
lege, and Mary Lou, a sophomore at Swarth- 
more. Roger is so good a fencer that he 
hopes to be on the next U. S. Olympic Team, 
and he has interested his father into the 
sport, too. 

Besides fencing, Franklin's hobbies arc 
golf, and his collection of boys' books by 
G. A. Henty. 

His Henty collection contains 94 out of 
the 95 books that the noted author wrote is 
probably one of the most nearly completed 
collections of his works; 72 items in the 
collection were editions. Tin- books 
represent years of haunting secoml li:in.l 
bookstores from coast to coast. 

Another hobby is his armchair garden, 

meaning that in his garden he has a shrul) in 

flower every month of the year, such as the 

wifchhazcl that Buck Shott saw in February. 

Dr. Jones is an active member of I'lii 

Trustee Edward M. Greene 
95, Dies 

Bucknell University lost one of its most 
faithful workers with the death on Tuesday, 
December 29 of Edward M. Greene of the 
Class of 1895. 

Mr. Greene was for 31 years an active 
and capable trustee and patron of the Uni- 
versity. A lifetime resident of Huntingdon 
County, Pennsylvania, he died after a brief 
illness in the J. C. Blair Memorial Hospital, 

He was the third generation of Greenes 
in the leather tarming business, being asso- 
ciated first with his father and later with his 
brother Raj'mond in the tanning industry. 
After his retirement from active business he 
spent his winters in Mission, Texas with a 
son and a sister who reside there. 

A frequent visitor to the campus on trustee 
business and for class reunions he maintained 
a broad interest in all University affairs. Just 
a few days before his death he attended a 
Bucknell-Juniata basketball game in Hunt- 

The Greene family includes many Buck- 
nellians. His father, Calvin Greene was a 
patron of the University and his late brother, 
Raymond, was a member of the Class of 
1902. His sister, Mrs. Esther Greene Hamil- 
ton was a member of the Institute '96 class. 
Two sisters still surviving are Mrs. Ida 
Greene Watson, Mercedes, Texas, Institute 
'94, and Miss Nora Greene, Lewistown, Insti- 
tute '94. Mr. Greene is also survived by two 
sons, Edward M. Greene, Jr., Greenwich, 
Conn., and Waldo W. Greene, Mission, 

In 1900 he married the former Caroline 
Wittenmyer of the Bucknell Institute Class 
of '91, who died in 1942. Other relatives of 
Mrs. Greene who were Bucknellians include 
Mabel Wittenmyer, Institute '94, deceased. 
Bertha Wittenmyer, Institute '92, of Harris- 
burg and Samuel Wittenmyer, Institute '91 
of Whitford. 

On the campus Mr. Greene was a member 
of Phi Kappa Psi fraternity. He was active 
in the First Baptist Church of Huntingdon 
throughout his life. A life long Republican, 
he served on the Republican State Committee 
as Huntingdon County's representative and 
during World War I served as Federal Fuel 
Administrator for the county. 

Bucknell has lost a faithful servant of long 
standing. The University extends heartfelt 
sympathy to the surviving members of the 
Greene family.

Bucknell is experiencing a none-too excit- 
ing athletic season so far as the won-lost 
columns are concerned, but through the dark- 
ness comes a bright ray of sunshine in the 
form of her freshman basketball team which 
at this writing has won nine of its first ten 

The yearling five is regarded by local fol- 
lowers as one of the best seen hereabouts in 
recent years, and their record seems to bear 
that out. On four occasions they liave scored 
over 90 points, and against Bloomsburg State 
Teachers College Junior Varsity, they 
amassed a 103-point total. 

All of the members of the starting five 
are averaging over 13 points per game, and 
two of them are over the 17 point norm. 
They are not exceptionally rangy except for 
Center John Beatty who extends 6-5 up- 
wards. But they are fast, unusually good 
shots and as spirited and scrappy a crew 
as any coach would want. 

Leading the scoring parade is Jumpin 
Joe Baccelli of Niagara Falls, N. Y., who 
has scored 175 points thus far for a 17.5 
average. Joe's best night came against 
Bloomsburg when he scored 28. Right be- 
hind him is John Beatty of Charleroi, who 
is averaging 17.1 points. His best single 
game effort came against Lycoming College 
Junior Varsity when he hit for 25. 

Third highest, but perhaps the steadiest 
performer is Mike Corrigan of Kutztown, 
who averages 15.8 per game but has never 
scored less than 11 points in any single con- 
test this year. Next is Norm Voorhees of 
Meadville, who has scored 137 points and 

who seems to be improving steadily as the 
season rolls along. He garnered 25 as the 
Junior Herd trampled Penn State's Little 
Lions, 88-63. IVIarty Tannenbaum of Hack- 
ensack, N. J., boasts a 13.1 average. He 
popped in 23 markers early in the year 
against Lycoming for his best single game 

This aggregation has come along rapidly 
under the direction of Coach Bill Lane, and 
varsity mentor Ben Kribbs is looking ahead 
anxiously to next season when he can add 
these youngsters to his varsity.

FUTURE Bl CkMiLL HorHFULS— Six of the outstanding members of this year's once-beateni 
Buckiiel] freshman hve should be a great boost to Bucknell's basketball fortunes next season. They are:

Voorhee.s. Meadville: stanchng, Danvin Scliaidey, Boyertown: Joe Baccelli, Niagara Falls, N. Y., and 
Mike Corrigan, of Kutztown. All. except Schanley are averaging over ten points per game. The Baby 
Bisons have won nine of thejr first ten games, including victories over the Penn State, Lehigh, and Gettys- 
burg yearlings, 

You'd Have to See It 
To Believe It 

Bucknell's freshman basketball team looked 
upon Penn State as their "big game" and 
were definitely "up" for the contest, but how 
far "up" could one team get? 

Joe Baccelli tossed in a set shot to open 
the scoring, and from that point on it didn't 
seem to matter who took aim and fired so 
long as he was a Bucknellian, for the ball 
couldn't seem to keep from slithering through 
the hoop. The BU Frosh missed tliree shots 
during the first period and had the fantastic 
lead of 35-8 at the end of the quarter. The 
game finally ended with Bucknell out front,

Want to Join the Chain Gang? 

The Lhiiversity Christian Association is 
looking for alumni in various centers around 
the country who would be willing to serve as 
"hosts" for foreign students at Bucknell, who 
use their vacations to "See America." 

The idea, as explained by Forrest D. 
Brown, General Secretary, is to make it pos- 
sible for our guest students from abroad to 
see as much of the country as possible during 
Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, and sum- 
mer vacations. They travel by bus or hitch- 
hike. "Stations" along the way provided by 
Bucknell alumni would make such trips much 
more meaningful, and make possible addi- 
tional local color. It would also enable alum- 
ni to meet some of the very fine students we 
have from overseas. Overnight accommoda- 
tions, and a tour of interesting places nearby 
would enhance their education. Many of 
these students want to see New England, 
the South, Florida, New Orleans, TVA, the 
middle west, and even the far west. As 
strangers they would feel more at home to 
find friends along the way. This past Christ- 
mas the Hostess of the French House wanted 
to see New Orleans, but hesitated to start 
off on such a long bus trip alone, and with 
no friends along the route. Miss Jeanne 
Barnes '39 of Niagara Falls has done an out- 
standing job for foreign students visiting the 
Falls at the conclusion of the Foreign Stu- 
dent Institute each summer. 

Alumni who would be willing to assist in 
this hospitality chain should communicate 
with Mr. Forrest D. Brown, Bucknell Uni- 
versity Christian Association. He will be 
glad to provide you with any further infor- 
mation, and to receive your suggestions. 

About a year and a half ago a student, 
George B. Spratt, and Dr. C. Harvey Pal- 
mer, associate professor of physics, began 
the construction of an apparatus to measure 
the speed of light. It is believed to be the 
only one of its kind in college use, can re- 
cord light velocity directly and will be used 
as standard laboratory equipment.

BuflSngton "28 on Long 
Run Radio Program 

When Albert F. Buffmgton aired his first 
"Der Xixnutz" radio program in 1946 he 
may have thought he was adding an avoca- 
tion to his main hobby of golf. Today, al- 
most 400 broadcasts later, his radio audience 
in the central Pennsylvania counties reached 
by Sunbury station \\'KOK eagerly await his 
friendly greeting : "^^'eIl, w-ie seid dier da 
mariya, dier lieva leit?" "Der Nixnutz" 
(Pennsylvania Dutch for "the mischievious 
one") has grown out of an active interest in 
scientific studies of the Pennsylvania Dutch 
dialect Bufiington began at Harvard while 
studying for his doctor of pliilosophy degree 

LE.\FIN"G THROUGH his fan mail. Dr. Albert F. 
Bufiington "28 finds 98 spellings of his radio name, 
some written on blackboard, rear. 

BuflF was born in Pillow, Dauphin Coun- 
ty, Pennsylvania, and in spite of his name, 
which is of English origin, he considers him- 
self a Pennsylvania Dutchman. His early 
life was that tj'pical of a rural youth and 
he became interested in livestock judging. A 
budding career ended when he misjudged 
the equipment of a cow in a cattle judging 
contest at the Pennsylvania Farm Show. 

After graduation from Eucknell in 1928, 
Buffington taught German at Central High 
School, Scranton, where he met and married 
the former Dorothy Lorine Harris. But he 
preferred college teaching and became a grad- 
uate student at Harvard, where he was award- 
ed the Master of Arts degree 09.32) and the 
Doctor of Philosophy degree C 19.37). Travel 
and study in Germany, France and Switzer- 
land gave him close contacts with the dialects 
spfjken in the Rhenish Palatinate, the section 
in Germany from which a large majority of 
the early German settlers in Penn.sylvania 
ramc. There followed a long series of schol- 
arly papers on the Penn.sylvania Dutch dia- 
lect. Then, combining efforts with other 
^^h(llars in the Pennsylvania Dutch country, 
ramc the desire to tell the Pennsylvania 
Dutch in the area sfjmething about their 
I'luroiican origins and their history in this 
ctrtintry— a history of which they have a 
right to be proufl.

Feaster '30 Follows 
Many Interests 

Most college yearbooks, L'Agcnda includ- 
ed, are not too often correct in their "most 
likely to — " departments. But even before 
John N. Feaster '30 graduated The Buck- 
netlian was describing him as "systematic, 
reliable, sympathetic, optimistic, brilliant, ver- 
satile, and a real friend." Tlie Bucknellian 
was proved to be correct in "Johnny's" case 
on the campus and since. 

John took his A.B. from Bucknell to An- 
dover-Newton Theological Institution from 
which he was graduated in 1933. A further 
degree (D.D.) was awarded by Bucknel! 
University in 1949. 

As a minister he has served with distinc- 
tion the Kennebunkport (Maine) Congrega- 
tional Church, the Hammond Street Congre- 
gational Church of Bangor (Maine), and 
since 1946 the historic North Congregational 
of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. 

Far from being a cloistered clergyman Dr. 
Feaster has long specialized in community 
activities and good fellowship. Among his 
accomplishments at Bangor has been his 
chairmanship of the Community Chest which 
he led over the top before the end of the 
campaign. A deep thinker, a wide reader, a 
facile writer, it is only natural that he should 
be called upon for much public speaking. 
His contacts with young people have been 
kept alert through his many church youth 
activities, as a speaker at Religion-in-Life 
Programs and commencements and in his 
varied efforts to have students learn to ap- 
preciate good books. A personal friend of 
the "Kennebiuikport Authors" Booth Tark- 
ington, Kenneth Roberts and Margaret De- 
land, he presents a delightful lecture on tlieir 
works. He has written widely on a number 
of subjects including a not yet published 
manuscript of Bunyan's "Pilgrim Progress." 

He is a member of Rotary and the New- 
comen Society and a 32nd degree Mason, 

Married to the former Eleanor Densmore 
Petherbridge in 1933, they have two children, 
William and Lucinda. Mrs. Feaster is a 
sister of John H. Peterbridge 'V. 

John's classmates are looking forward to 
the 25th reunion of the class in 1955 when 
everybody in the class will be able to reune 
with John and recall the hectic days of 1930 
on the campus. 

Reginald P. Merridew '37 
Program Director, WGAR 

Dr, Harold C, Urey, one of three scien- 
tists who led in the creation of the atomic 
bomb and winner of the Nobel Prize in 
chemistry, delivered an address at Bucknell 
University entitled, "The Chemistry of the 
Earth's Atmosphere," on January 20, Occa- 
sion for the lecture was the 198th meeting 
of the Central Pennsylvania section of the 
American Chemical Society. 

Dr. Wendell Smith, associate professor of 
p.sychology, attentled the annual meeting of 
the American Association for the Advance- 
ment of Science in IJoston, Mass., recently. 
At the meeting, Dr, Smith read a \y.i\wr en- 
titled "The Hoarding I'.ehavior of .Adrenal- 
cctomized Hampsters." 

older brother, Albert Franklin lUidfinglon, 
Jr. is a senior at the Mount Herman .School, 
Mount Herman, Mass, 

And, of course, all of this activity-^radio, 
lectures, scholarly dissertations - are just an 
avocation; Dr. liiifTinglon fills a full time po- 
sition as Professor of German at Tin- I'eiin- 
sylvania State University at State College. 

No member of the station's executive staff 
is more vitally concerned with public service 
than Reginald P. Merridew {i7), program 
director of WGAR, Cleveland, for the past 
six years. 

In addition to guiding WGAR to two 
straight local awards for public service, Mer- 
ridew has become a vigorous participant in

program chairman and vice president, as 
well as maintaining memberships in the 
Cleveland Advertising Club, the Lakewood 
Methodist Church, and Lakewood Lodge No. 
601, F. and A. M. 

Merridew has also conducted his own pro- 
gram on WGAR. With Musical Director 
Henry Pildner accompanying him on the 
piano, Reg lifted his Welsh baritone voice 
in song on the "Reg and Henry Show" for 
10 years until his retirement from the air 
during 1953. Reg and Henry were never 
too busy entertaining to make a public ser- 
vice announcement. 

Born in Mynyddislwyn, South Wales, 
Merridew began public life as a hoy soprano 
at the age of 7 and added piano-playing at 
the age of 10, At Eucknell, he belonged to 
Cap and Dagger, the dramatic society ; Theta 
Alpha Phi, national honorary dramatic fra- 
ternity, and Kappa Sigma,

What Our Readers Like 
And Dislike in the Magazine 

The editor of THE BUCKNELL ALUM- 
NUS would like to be guided in his selection 
of articles for the magazine by the prefer- 
ence of the readers. To this end periodic 
surveys of reader interest are conducted. 
Last September Bucknellians were asked to 
vote on their preference for a printing sched- 
ule calling for four magazines and three 
newspapers each year (the present program) 
or whether they preferred an all-magazine 
program calling for five magazines each 
year. Readers were also asked to vote on 
whether they preferred more, less, or about 
the same amount of space devoted to the 
various departments of the periodical. 

Bucknellians being busy people, your edi- 
tor did not expect a heavy vote but was a 
little shocked by the very light response. 

On the basis of the replies received, the 
Board of Directors at its last meeting has 
approved a change in the printing schedule 
for next year which will call for the pub- 
lishing of five magazine editions at approxi- 
mately two month intervals. Starting next 
will be published on September 1, November 
1, January 1, March 1, and May 1. The 
printer's deadline dates will be approxi- 
mately thirty days earlier in each case. 
Fifty-four percent of the readers who voted 
preferred the all-magazine schedule outlined 
above while forty-six percent voted in favor 
of the present schedule of four magazines 
and three newspaper editions. 

The vote on preferences for space distri- 
bution indicated that the majority of the 
readers preferred no change in the present 
space allotments to the various sections of 
the magazine. A detailed tabulation of space 
preferences is shown in the following tabu-

Dr. Magalhaes in England 

Research studies which she has been con- 
ducting at Bucknell University have brought 
Dr. Hulda Magalhaes, associate professor of 
physiology, an invitation to address an im- 
portant international scientific gathering in 
England this spring. 

Dr. Magalhaes has agreed to present a 
paper on the uses of the golden hamster as 
a laboratory animal at the Seventh Labora- 
tory Animals Bureau Congress to be held 
at the University of Sheffield April 5 and 6. 

The paper will be based on research which 
she has been directing at Bucknell during 
the past seven years in the development of 
pure-lines of golden hamsters for special 
laboratory uses. It will also mention the 
work of both undergraduate and graduate 
students under her direction in compiling a 
bibliography pertaining to the uses of ham- 
sters in teaching and research laboratories 
throughout the world. 

Dr. Magalhaes is currently on leave from 
Bucknell to engage in private research un- 
der a fellowship from the Ford Foundation 
granted her for the 1953-54 college year. 

During her trip abroad Dr. Magalhaes 
will visit outstanding research centers in 
England and Scotland with particular em- 
phasis on the special laboratories at the Uni- 
versities of Edinburgh and London where 
work is being done in mammalian genetics. 
She will return to this country in Iv'Iay and 
will resume her duties at Bucknell with 
the fall term.

How to Eat Your Cake and Have It Too ! 

A Clever Play in Three Acts 

Act I 
As the curtain rises, Joe Bucknell is seated at his desk, scratching his 
head. He has some securities he would like to reinvest, but he is afraid 
that the capital gains tax will be prohibitive. He is also thinking how he 
is ever going to be able to leave something in his will to Bucknell. He 
finally decides to call on his classmate, Bucky Bison '23, who has had an 
outstanding career in the banking business. 

Act n 

The scene is Bucky Bison's office. After explaining his problem, 
Joe Bucknell sits back and listens. The problem is not an unusual one, 
sa3^s Bucky. In fact, there is a very simple solution that is profitable to 
both Joe Bucknell and the University. It works like this : 

Joe Bucknell establishes a trust fund which will provide him an 
income for life. He turns over his securities to the bank as trustee and 
names Bucknell University as the ultimate beneficiary. The bank then 
reinvests the funds without paying a capital gains tax because it is acting 
for a charitable trust. 

As the result of these transactions, Joe Bucknell has made a gift to 
Bucknell and at the same time has done the following good turns to 
himself : 

1. Secured an income for life from the securities he has turned over 
to the bank. 

2. Diversified his investments without paying a capital gains tax. 

3. Obtained a sizeable tax deduction for the year in which he estab- 
lished the trust. 

4. Increased his spendable income. 

Act III 
Joe Bucknell is back home, but instead of sitting at his desk with 
a frown on his forehead, he is relaxing in his easy chair. His smile of 
contentment is due to the fact that he now knows that he can continue to 
add to his trust fund each year with the same attendant benefits — both 
to himself and to the University.

Olin Science Building by the Olin Foun- 

We were gratified to have so many 
responses to our gathering, particularly 
from people as far away as Dover and 
Newark. Our group was also enhanced 
by the presence of several parents of stu- 
dents now at the University. 

Our meeting was planned mainly as a 
social get together and we hope that even 
more Alumni will come to the two or three 
other meetings we plan to have each j'ear. 
It was really nice to see so many old 
friends and meet so many new ones.

Teachers Convene 
In Harrisburg 

A small but enthusiastic group of Buck- 
nellians in Education held a luncheon 
meeting during the Pennsylvania State 
Education Association convention on De- 
cember 28. Carrying out plans laid at the 
1952 Annual Luncheon, Buck S h o 1 1 , 
alumni secretary, had invited several pres- 
ent students of education to attend. Mr. 
William C. Schaffner MS'53 and Mr. Elmo 
L. Mentzer, who will receive a master's 
degree in June 1954 told of their impres- 
sions of the education department offer- 
ings on the campus and made several 
appreciated suggestions for improvement. 
Dr. Walter H. Sauvain, acting head of 
the department of education at Bucknell, 
outlined the program of secondary and 
elementary teacher training now being 
offered. Dr. Frank G. Davis '11, professor 
of education and former alumni secretary, 
presented his impressions of education in 
Texas and Mexico, where he spent the 
past year in research and writing. The 
problems facing educators in Pennsylvania 
were ably discussed by Dr. Eugene P. 
Bertin '17, assistant executive secretary of 
PSEA. The program was entirely infor- 
mal and inevitably wound up with the 
annual bull session which this year de- 
veloped into a contest of Frank Davis' 
definitions of Texans vs. Gene Berlin's 
definitions of New England Yankees. Dr. 
Sauvain's red-nose reindeer entry easily 
won the prize in the pun division.

Baltimore's party for- Bucknell's birthday 
was an evening meeting held at 8 o'clock, 
January 28th, at the Parker House Restau- 
rant. After a short business meeting, forty- 
two enthusiastic Bucknellians enjoyed the 
delicious cake and other refreshments for 
which President Ruger '34 had arranged. 

From the campus, Mr. Fitz Walling '46 
of the Admissions Office, came to give us an 
up-to-date account of Bucknell events — 
among them the thrilling announcement of 
tlie $900,000 Olin Foundation gift. Mr. Fitz 
Walling spoke with humor and interest' of 
the more than one hundred visits he has 
made to schools for the purpose of attract- 
ing desirable students to Bucknell. He made 
the suggestion, relayed from the Admissions 
Office, that a High School Selection Com- 
mittee be set up to contact the principals and 
guidance teachers of the area. The follow- 
ing committee was selected : Ann Mussina 
'34, chairman; Mrs. Frank Koehler, George 
B. Young, Jr. '52, William S. Kosicki '49, 
William Wakefield '51. 

A tentative date of May 27th was set for 

the next evening meeting by President Ruger.

South Jersey 

Bucknell's 108th Birthday was celebrated 
by the Bucknell University Alumni Club of 
Southern New Jersey at Glover Caterers 
in Vineland, New Jersey on February 5, 
1954. Incidentally, the 74 members "who 
were present were more than grateful to 
Ned Glover, Class '49. for the superb dinner 
his establishment catered during the course 
of tiie evening and for the added enjoyment 
derived from the background of piano 

Between courses many events took place. 
Former members of the Bucknell Men's 
Glee Club were asked to rise, whereupon 
they were ushered to the piano to present 
some of Bucknell's noted melodies. This 
went over with great success. However, in 
retaliation the men made the women rise to 
present their chorus. All ended well with a 
finale of all voices joining in. Also a short 
discussion was held about our next meeting 
on June 19th, which will be a family picnic. 

Mrs. Kenneth Slifer brought a beautiful 
display of jewelry made by Donald A. Ware, 
Class '53. Unfortunately, Donald was not 
able to attend but all were anxious to help 

Quite a varied group was present, but also 
present was a Bucknell student and a pros- 
pective Bucknellian. Mrs. Dutton, the old- 
est alumni attending, was also called upon 
to take a bow. 

Irene Thompson was to entertain us with 
her spectacular baton twirling but she was 
suddenly rushed to the hospital just two days 
before. Our thoughts were with her though 
for a speedy recovery. 

Our most important guest of the evening 
was Dr. James A. Gathings, who presented 
a short talk on the activities that have taken 
place at Bucknell in most recent years. He 
made us feel as though we were back on 
campus again, seeing the events take place. 
To him, we owe much for a very interesting 
evening on Bucknell and our Bucknell 

With our meeting completed and our 
minds enriched, the cutting of the birthday 
cake took place to end an enjoyable evening.

St. Petersbvirg 

The annual dinner of the Bucknell Club, 
of St. Petersburg, was held at the Pennsyl- 
vania Hotel, with 28 in attendance. Howard 
Headland gave the invocation. The presi- 


dent, Mr. Ballets read a telegram of good 
wishes from the University. He announced 
the recent gift of a new Science building, 
which brought rejoicing to the local group. 
Dr. Jolin I. Woodruff '90, spoke briefly on 
the Emeritus Club. Messages of thanks for 
sympathy cards were read from Mrs. Peters 
and the family of Dr. J. Hillis Miller. Mrs. 
Bowser, the Mulkies and the Sholls sent 
greetings and a picture of the Sholl family 
was displayed. Dr. John Clyde Hostetter 
wrote about his recent operation, necessitat- 
ing the amputation of his leg. From Lake- 
land came Dr. and Mrs. W. E, DeMelt '06, 
she being a bride. From Clearwater came 
Anna Halfpenny Reitz M'99, and Mary 
Halfpenny Gilbert I '00, with Mr. Gilbert, 
both of them Lewisburg girls. Helen Davis 
'13 brought a guest, Mary Margaret Krebs. 
Mrs. Eurora Davies Alexander '03 brought 
her sister-in-law, Mrs. R. A. Davies. 

The speaker of the day was Dr. Elkanah 
B. Hulley '07, who is in the city renovating 
and repairing the building purchased to 
house the Law Department of Stetson Uni- 
versity. This school is of interest to all 
Bucknellians because the late Dr. G. Lincoln 
Hulley '88 served with distinction as Presi- 
dent of Stetson University for many years. 
Elkanah is one of the Trustees of Stetson. 
He plans to move to our city and join our 

The Secretary thanked the group for the 
many messages sent during her recent ill- 
ness and thanked George Ballets for assum- 
ing her duties in connection with the dinner. 

We adjourned to meet March 20th, at 
Lake Maggiore, for a picnic covered-dish 
luncheon at 12 :30 o'clock.

Mirror of Your Reunion 

Have you ever thought about how the 
rest of your college gang has done since 
graduation? Of course you have! We 
know because it is the question most often 
asked by alums on visits to the Alumni 
Headquarters. It is not an easy question 
to answer but we are happy to report that 
a number of classes reuning within the 
past two years have been able to find the 
answer and pass it along to the reunioners 
of their classes. The simple device being 
used to mirror class progress is the class- 
wide questionnaire which is then sum- 
marized in a booklet or brochure, various- 
ly known as the Reunion Report, the Anni- 
versary L' Agenda, etc. 

Last year the Classes of 1908, 1923, 1928, 
1933, 1938 and 1948 published reunion 
booklets. The year before only one class, 
1922, made an organized effort to produce 
a booklet. Prior to 1952 there were no 
booklets published for Alumni and Re- 
union Day distribution. This year eight 
reunion classes— 1909, 1914, 1919, 1924, 
1929, 1934, 1944 and 1949— are already at 
work on their publications. The editors 
and their committees were reported in 
ary 1954. 

Since each report is a class-sponsored 
project, the format and layout is the 
product of the editorial committee of the 
class. Consequently, there is great variety 
in content and size. But all have been 
good and have been highly praised by 
alumni of other colleges in addition to 
being much appreciated by members of 
the reunion classes. 

One of the most unique among those 
published last year was the 12-page print- 
ed booklet prepared by John Burton Clark 
of Minneapolis for his Class of 1948. 
Well-illustrated with charts and figures, 
John's report gave a clear indication of 
what the Class of 1948 has done in its 
professional, personal and coinmunity life. 
An interesting glimpse of class prefer- 
ences, selections and habits was included. 

Treating questionnaire returns with 
standard statistical procedures, John was 
able to draw the following average pic- 
ture of the men of the Class of 1948: 

Mr. 1948 . . . 

I'm sure you aren't a 29 year old married 
■man laith one and a third children, an 
income of $5,05S a year, and a new con- 
temporary home ivorth $14,120. 

I'ln not even sure you drive a 1951 Chev- 
rolet, smoke Luckies, subscribe to four 
maga::ines including Time and Life, or 
that you earned $19,838 since graduation. 
Not a single bachelor's degree graduate 
from our class fits those measurements 
exactly — but this hypothetical character 
is the statistical average man in our class. 
He received a B.S. degree from Buck- 
nell and does not have any advanced 

He has had nearly tivo jobs since 1949 
and has lived in more than- three resi- 
dences in. tivo states. There's nearly an 
even chance he has been a military re- 
servist or on active duty in the past five 
years, and he owns a TV set. 
He is active in two organisations; his 
church and a professional society. 

And John's searching questionnaire 
turned out the gals of the Class of 1948 
in this average mold — with the accent on 

Mrs. Coed 

o . e 

Are you a 26 year old married coed zvith 
almost one child? Do you and your hus- 
band drive a 1950 Chevrolet, subscribe to 
four magazines, including Time and 
Life? Do you own a TV set and smoke 
Chesterfields? If you are, and do, then 
you are the typical feminine graduate of 
our class. 

She also received an A.B. degree from 
Bucknell and lives in her oztm contem- 
porary home, zoorth $14,840. 
She earned $9,830 since graduation — 
probably zvorked 2 to 3 years of the 5 
years since graduation and then married 
and took up the profession of home mak- 

She is active in 2y'2 organizations outside 
of her home; a church, and probably a 
co)nmunity club or a bridge club, plus 
some service activity. 

Neither of these descriptions fit you but 
chances are your reunion class is busy at 
work trying to mirror your class. If that 
unanswered questionnaire is still on your 
desk better dig it out and send it off to- 
day. And, of course, make plans now to 
be on the campus on Reunion Day, June 
12 to see how close to "average" you are. 
Even if your regular five-year reunion is 
not scheduled this year (Classes whose 
numerals end in "4" and "9" celebrate in 
1954) come anyway for a good representa- 
tion from every class turns out every 
Alumni Weekend. June 12 is the big Day 
— See you then.

December 13 of Charles Grant Shaffer 

of Bloomfield, N. J. Charles was born 
in Lewisburg in 1869 and after at- 
tending local public schools enrolled in 
the Bucknell Academy in 1885. From 
the academy he entered Bucknell earn- 
ing his bachelor's degree in 1892 and 
his master's degree in 1895. Harvard 
University awarded him a bachelor's 
degree in 1893. He began teaching in 
1893 and served as teacher and prin- 
cipal in schools in Maryland and Louis- 
iana until 1900 when he joined the 
Newark school system. He retired from 
teaching in 1940 after 35 years service 
as principal of Elliott Street School in 

He was a member of Phi Gamma 
Delta fraternity, the Bison Club, the 
Emeritus Club of Bucknell, and a 
number of school-men's and musical 

Mr. Shaffer married Miss Dora Val- 
eska Becker, a concert stage violinist, 
who survives him along with a nephew, 
Russell Harris, of Bloomfield. Both Mr. 
and Mrs. Shaffer were regular visitors 
to the campus on commencement week- 
ends and other occasions and were 
faithful in attendance at alumni activi- 
ties at Newark and New York. The

Reunion June 11-14, 1954."— 

Christmas in Libya, 1953 

Two "christmases" were celebrated 
in Tripoli, both deeply significant to 
the celebraters. The first came in No- 
vember, the 19th, commemorating the 
birth of Mohammed. This is like om- 
Easter, a moveable feast, and I am told 
will come in October next year. It fell 
on a Thursday, and as Friday is the 
Moslem Sunday the observance began 
Wednesday and continued until Satur- 
day. It is called the Feast of Maulid, 
and for it Tripoli displays its ultimate 
in gaiety. To flood-fights, illuminated 
fountains, hundreds of lighted candles, 
torch-light processions of children, pag- 
eants of Boy Scouts and sports clubs, 
military parades and caroling groups, 
was added the picturesque background 
of Arabian costumes, sheiks in their 
finest robes and head-dress, all against 
the back-drop of palm-trees, domes, 
minarets, and the Mediterranean, blue 
as the sky above. Scores of horsemen 
from the outlying villages attended 
their sheiks, one of whom, called "Chief 
of the Pilgrims", will have the honor 
and responsibility of escorting the pil- 
grims to Mecca next year. He will 
then wear the red robe of office con- 
ferred on him at this Feast by the Gov- 
ernor of the Province. 

After this ceremony, came the pro- 
cessions of the religious sects, the Zavia. 
The celebrants clad in their richest 
garb and carrying gay silken banners, 
danced from the King's Palace to Gov- 
ernment House, and then into the Old 
City to the Castle where in earlier days 
the Pasha waited their coming to re- 
ceive their thanks for the Festival. 

The processions continued two days. 
Our Christmas celebrated a month later 
by the English, American, Itafian and 
Greek populations offered no compe- 
tition to the Feast of Maulid, but was 
observed in the Cathedral, the Greek 
Church and the chapels of the two mil- 
itary bases in the manner traditional 
to them. Carolers were organized at 
the camps and visited the homes of the 
members of the two legations. Christ- 
mas trees and turkeys were flown in, 
carols were in the air at the American 
Wheelus Airbase during the week, and 
everything possible was done to make 
the Americans, and I think the English 
also, conscious of the significance of 
the season though they were in unfa- 
miliar surroundings. 

Our own family celebration was 
brightened by the visit of my niece's 
father, Mr. George Wadsworth, who 
stopped here a week on his way to his 
new post in Saudi-Arabia, to see his 
daughter and attend the christening of 
his first grandchild, Mai'y Isabelle Har- 
ris. The Decembei- rains on which the 
harvest depends began the 24th and 
continued several days; but as our cele- 
brations did not depend on the weather, 
but were family ulTairs, we could and 
did make it a Merry Christmas.

Daniel H. Krise, perhaps the oldest 
(well over 85) living member of the 
class, is spending the declining years of 
life most happily in the Masonic Home 
at Elizabethtown ("the best place this

be remembered for having taught in 
public and other schools, before and 
after his college course, for nearly six- 
ty years until he retired when eighty- 
two years of age, and not least for hav- 
ing given to Bucknell the sum of $5,000 
to establish a scholarship. If he does 
not go back to teaching, may he have 
many more years of enjoyable retire-

from Bucknell Institute. From Bucknell University 
she received her A.B., summa cum laude, in 1905, 
and her A.M. in 1908. She received her Ed.D. from 
the Pennsylvania State University in 1938, being the 
first woman to do so. Dr. Meek served at the Mont-

Coit Hoechst is still at it. His Christ- 
mas greeting is a beautifully engrossed 
"Prayer for the New Year" of St. Fran- 
cis of Assisi. How many hours of work 
did that involve, Coit? No medieval 
scriptorium could produce anything 
more artistic. 

Almost anyone can write a limerick 
but a former colleague of Coit's who 
coined one around Hoechst really took 
on a challenge. Here is his limerick: 

A versatile chap that man Hoechst — 

You never know what he'll try noechst. 

Harp, organ and cello 

He plays 'em smart fellow — 

Can cuss in eight tongues if he's voechst. 

Can you picture Doc Manley with a 
Rip Van Winkle beard? Well, I don't 
know that he has one, but he ought 
to, because that is the accepted thing 
for great-granddaddies. His great- 
grandson "Mike", son of Carol, daugh- 
ter of Louise Manley Krueger '32, 
daughter of Lawrence Manley '07 and 
Helen, arrived, in what is becoming a 
fad, as a "preemie", but now has the 
"physique of a Japanese wrestler", ac- 
cording to great-grandmamma. The 
Manleys are back in Washington after 
a fine vacation in Florida. 

Charles Francis Potter is expanding 
his article on riddles in the Funk and 
Wagnalls Dictionary of Folklore into a 
book. He gives frequent talks to chil- 
dren in schools and summer camps on 
old-fashioned American fun-rimes and 
riddles, as well as to grown-up chil- 
dren at Rotary and Women's Clubs. I 
wonder if they are as good as the lec- 
ture he gave years ago all over the 
country on the American home library? 
If he were to give one on that topic 
today it would probably be even sad- 
der, now that the bar has displaced the 
book-case in sophisticated homes, and 
TV look-see is displacing the first of 
the three R's for many people. (One 
of my students said to me: "You must 
be like iny grandfather. He's a queer 
old gentleman; can sit for hours read- 
ing a book.") 

George Riggs has had a busy and in 
some respects a sad year. From his 
home base in Northumberland he was 
summoned to Seattle because of the 
death of a brother-in-law. While there 
he received a telegram from St. Peters- 
burg, Fla., telling of the serious illness 
of a sister there. He reached St. Peters- 
burg just in time to find her still liv- 
ing. Arriving home, George was taken 
with pneumonia himself, and Margaret 
also was ill. Upon recovery, George 
resumed his preaching in churches of

I'm always glad when the holiday

going to see some familiar hand writ-

greeting expresses my thoughts 

"Never a Christmas Morning, 
Never the Old Year Ends, 
But Somebody Thinlis of Somebody, 
Old Days, Old Times, Old Friends." 

It's a most satisfying and gratifying 
feeling to have this renewed contact.

from Eva Himmelreich Apgar Dec. 8th. 
"Dear Maze, 

Get a big kick from your Class report and espe- 
cially this time, am trying to prepare myself for

am living in Pennsylvania, perhaps we could share 
a room in the same "old ladies' home."

I love to hear from you at Christmas. Thank 
you so much for your note. We hope that you and 
your family have a very happy holiday, 

I'm not so sure about ours because Mother is in

it is a long road. She was taken to the hospital on

John Tyson was one of the soloists in 
an oratorio, "The Childhood of Christ". 
It was given in two of the leading 
churches in Williamsport. We had 
planned to hear him but a bad night 
prevented us from going. I've chased 
this young Tyson all over Lycoming 
County — talked with him on the phone 
but have never seen him. I'm going to 
meet him someday; know who he is? 
Jesse Tyson's son. 

Howard Johnson writes: 

Dear Maze C. H.. 

This is a belated Christmas greeting and note. 
First, I appreciate your references in the 1912 news. 
I'm glad that my Christmas composition of last 
year struck a responsive chord. I renew the wish. 

Second, I have recently married Miss Eva Cornell, 
of Rockville Centre. N. Y., a school teacher of N. Y. 
C, an active Baptist, who was in my first parish. 

Third, you say Pat and I are semi-retired and ask 
when will housewives retire? Do not get a cage for 
"Pop" when he retires and snoops around the 
kitchen. Do as I have done. We have a halt acre 
estate, with small bungalow and good-sized work 
sliop. Do not put Pop in the "dog-house." Let him 
putter around a shop and "go jump in the lake" 
(as I may do here) or take a Ashing trip in the Bay 
or Atlantic. Come to Jersey and you need not go to 
an old ladies' home! 

I may move in on Howard, who 
knows? His address is Lacey Road, 
Forked River, N. J.

Yes I got my rocking chair but I've

and I decided to take the day off and 
go somewhere. I thought it would be 
fun to go to Clearfield for two reasons 

one to look up Ed Dufton whom we 

haven't seen for 41 years — the other 
to find some of my father's relatives. 
We found Ed's place of business — a 
lovely hardware store which had been 
in the family for several generations. 
I walked through the store back to 
the office. There stood Ed, all dressed 
up in a white shirt, looking like a real 
executive pushing a pencil. I said, 
"You're Ed Dufton, aren't you?" He 
said, "Yes, who are you?" I would 
have known him anywhere. Looks just 
the same, a trifle stouter, a few gray 
hairs, wears glasses — very shy. We 
had a nice visit, said he hoped to come 
back to school some day but most of 
the fellows whom he knew were gone. 
I asked about, "Porky" O'Brien but he 
hadn't seen him for a long time. 

Ed directed us to my relative's home 
where we had a most delightful visit. 
I found out that these people were the 
only living relatives in my father s fam- 

1953 brought a few surprises. Letters 
from Merlon Ogden, Helen Ruth, Ly- 
man Lister, Howard Johnson's mar- 
riage, found John Tyson, heard from 
Art Waltz, chatted with Ed Dufton. 

And now when old Father Time gath- 
ers up his possessions and limps around 
the bend in the road may you survivors 
(as Bob calls us) have the best of 
Health, Wealth, and Happiness. 

Keep your feet on the ground, do your 
own thinking, don't let anyone boss 
you. May 1954 make us all better men 
and women.

She is currently involved in getting out-

"Charles Bidelspacher, Jr., Attorney

tine for "Bidy," as he is knr.w to fel- 
low lawyers, in 1953. Four of the cases 
involved suits of $1,000,000 and higher. 
He is given much of the credit for the 
pay-off in the much publicized Wil-

there; will you? Have had some inter-

could get you folks to answer my letters 
and cards. GIVE OUT WITH THE 
NEWS. I'll just let you know who I've 
heard from. 

Gardner M. Loughery sent me a fine 
newsy letter with some "brickbats as 
well as roses." He and his wife "Sue" 
Hill Loughery '35 and their two sons 
13 and 4 years of age, live at 336 Abbey 
Court, Ridgewood, N. J. He tells us 
he's a commuter and is putting on 
weight and losing his hair (aren't we 
alll). He was fortunate enough to sec 
the Delaware and homecoming games. 
Too bad he missed us at the Lafayette 
game. Gardner doesn't sa.y, but seems 
I heard he was in the insur./ncf busi- 
ness. He relates that L.-irr.v Bond is 
"doing wi'll with U. S. Rublji.T Co."; 
Bailey Russell died about four years 
ago; Paul Reit/, is teaching in Hershcy; 

Ed Flexer is a game warden in Pennsyl- 
vania; Eugene Cook is in South Jersey 
with Kimball Glass Co. These were 
all fine fellows and they all played a 
good game of "bridge" — wonder if they 
still do? 

William P. Boger is off to Europe to 
speak to medical groups. We are fortu- 
nate to have him on our class roster. 
He'll be back to greet us all in June. 

Fred D. Plnatti, formerly in charge 
of research and engineering at the 
Vineland, N. J. plant of Kimball Glass 
Co., has been elected a vice president 
and member of the board of directors 
of the company. Fred joined the Kim-

and has shown a steady record of pro- 
motion in the organization. He used 
to be a wonderful dancer and a "hand- 
some guy" — hope we'll see him in June. 

Major Harold A. Endler graduated 
from the Command and General Staff 
College at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas

to get back to Lewisburg in June. 

Dr. James M. Converse has a success-

Saved the best for the last. Dorothy 
Kester, that excellent star of Cap and 
Dagger in the good old days, is my idea 
of a truly great career gal. Wish we 
could print her entire letter then you 
could truly appreciate all she's done 
since June 1934. Dot is a director at 
The Weathervane, the Akron, O. com- 
munity theatre, and at present is di- 
recting a play at Ellet Jr.-Sr. High to 
be presented in March as part of the 
world wide celebration of International 
Theatre Month, sponsored by ANTA 
and UNESCO. Dot is a member of 
ANTA (American National Theatre and 
Academy) and was a delegate to their 
annual assembly representing the Chil- 
dren's Theatre Conference, a division of 
the American Education Theatre As- 
sociation. Last August Dot was con- 
vention program chairman for the an- 
nual meeting of the' Children's Theatre 
Conference at Adclplii College hero on 
Long Island. As present she is thcii' 
publicity chairman and preparing for 
their August meeting at Michigan State 
College. Dot is co-ordinator of speech 
education for Akron public schools and 
does a story houi' over WAKR. She's 
,-i member of th(,' American Spet'ch and 
Hearing Association and chairman of 
the speech supervisors in cities of over 
200,000 population and presided in No- 
vember at their meeting in N. Y. Dot 


is president of Beta Mu chapter of Delta 
Kappa Gamma, an honorary teachers 
society; also state first vice president 
and state program chairman and will 
represent Ohio at their 25th anniver- 
sary convention in Boston. 

Dorothy certainly does travel about 
and is still active with Phi Mu. In 1952 
at the lOOth anniversary at Macon, Ga. 
she was awarded first prize in the na- 
tional contest for her "Centennial Son- 
net." She is on the editorial board of 
The Agloia, the Phi Mu magazine. 

I could go on about Dot's wonderful 
activities but feel I've given you a 
bird's-eye view of the busy life of one 
of our more prominent classmates. 
Hope this won't keep you from writing 
to me — after all those of us who lead 
just normal lives as parents and bread- 
winners are important too — we're 
building the future America and cur 
sons and daughters are reaping the 
benefits of those four years we spent at 
Bucknell. I'm still hoping my two will 
choose Bucknell and by the time they 
are ready the campus will be more 
wonderful with the addition of the 
F. W. Olin Science Building and the 
other new buildings to come. 

I'll be looking for YOU on June 12th. 
Meanwhile, I'd appreciate some more 
news — wouldn't you — just write to me 
at the above address. Just remembered 
— what happened to the Bucknell little 
theatre project — how hopeful we were 
20 years ago to have a theatre at Buck- 
nell — perhaps in June we might do 
something about this.

MARCH 1954 

We Visit Biiekiiellians in Europe 

By Forrest D. Browx, Secretary, Christian Association 

Travel can be just that. Going places, 
seeing things strange and exotic, or ordinary ; 
doing things, rushing madly around, or just 
loafing — can be travel and pleasant. On 
the other hand it may mean a serious in- 
terest in art, histor>-, cultural patterns of 
different societies and groups, industrial de- 
velopment or social problems — and be im- 
mensely stimulating and educational. More 
of this serious study is being accomplished 
each year by Americans. Thirty thousand 
of 400,000 Americans who applied for pass- 
ports to travel abroad last year did so for 
"educational purposes". 

Our own interests for the five and a 
half months in Europe were in between. We 
wanted to see other countries and peoples, 
and to make some cultural comparisons. 
We wanted to know something about the 
religious situation in Portugal and Spain. 
the cultural conflicts in colonial Moslem 
Xorth Africa, the outlook of youth and stu- 
dents in Europe, and the progress and val- 
idity of student exchange ever^-where. We 
were fortunate in being able to make con- 
tacts with English speaking friends, old 
and new. in all the places we visited, and 
through them meet many other people of 
the respective countries. 

\\ e came out of the experience convinced 
that travel abroad could be made profoundly 
more meaningful if Americans took time to 
meet the real people in the countries they 
visit, and if they made use of their own 
professional associations and counterparts in 
other countries, this would be possible. 

On our initial long journey by train from 
Paris to Lisbon, our compartment friend, 
Manuel Mendes. young Portugese engineer 
who was returning home from six months 
study and observation in the Pittsburgh 
area, proved to be a most stimulating host. 
Enthusiastic about the superb treatment 
given him by members of his profession in 
Pittsburgh, he couldn't do enough for Amer- 
icans. Through him the towns and scenery 
and people took on human forms. Customs 
checks and strange customs were met with 
ease. In Lisbon another group of new friends 
introduced us to most fascinating people, his- 
toric places and to the history of a once 
great power, and a strong friend of the U. S. 

In Madrid and in Lisbon, other good 
friends unfolded for us some of the great 
art treasures of Spain in painting and in 
architecture. From the small but beautiful 
concealed Protestant chapels we got a sense 
of what being a Christian means under 
persecution. We witnessed also the deep 
devotion of the Spanish people to their own 
state faith r Roman Catholic), and the ten- 
sions such a relationship creates in domestic, 
social, economic and political life. Some of 
the most helpful conversations were with 
Roman Catholics in varied professions who 
have no illusions atxjut their explosive situ- 
ation. It may be hoped that the program 
of American aid will bring back into mod- 
ern life the country which has for years been 
in a back efldy. Seventy-five Spanish stu- 
dents arc_ in the USA studying this year, 
:^^ part of that program. Spain is indeed a 
tourist's paradise Ix-causc of the low prices 
and historic and colorful interests. The ec- 
ommiic suffering of the people is tragic.

the native villages of the Kabyle people in 
the remote hinderland, the ruins of an amaz- 
ing Greek and Roman civilization, now 
emerging from the sands, revealed new di- 
mensions of history to us. 

In Rome for Easter, we attended the 
American Church. The coffee hour follow- 
ing provides opportunity for meeting mem- 
bers of the American community — a delight- 
ful custom we were to find also in Geneva 
and in Paris. Of the more than half a mil- 
lion pilgrims to Rome at that season, three- 
fourths were said to be Germans ! In Flor- 
ence we met Italian students enthusiastically 
looking forward to a year in an American 
University under the Fulbright program. We 
also met two who had returned, a bit disil- 
lusioned to find that their training and ex- 
perience still did not qualify them to be 
teachers in their chosen fields of art and phil- 
osophy. A "professorship" in a European 
University, in fact any academic status, 
comes after long years of sacrifice, research, 
and is in itself recognition, rather than the 
pathway to recognition. 

In Germany we were introduced to Nuren- 
berg, Oberamagau, and Bavaria by Miss 
Betty Funkhouser, former assistant dean of 
women at Bucknell. At Zwcibrucken we 
were able to spend two week ends with For- 
rest, Jr. '51, and his wife, and to get here 
something of the life and outlook of the 
armed services on occupation duty. Through- 
out Europe we were pleased with the con- 
duct and spirit of American military per- 
sonnel. They were on the whole better rep- 
resentatives than the average run of tour- 
ists ! And they were taking advantage of 
seeing Europe. In Frankfurt we were part 
of a Bucknell reunion in the beautiful apart- 
ment of Gingi and Karl Geek. Karl has 
finished bis I'h.D. work with honors, and is 
now qualifying for the |)ost of "Judge". Me 
will presently return to his position with the 
Law Faculty of the University <if I'rankfurl. 
At the party were Hans Jensen and i'>nst 
Wallrapp who were at Bucknell in I'J.SI- 
\')S2, anrI who are still studying law at 
Frankfurt and Marburg respectively, fier- 
trud Merkle's brother, formerly a student at 
till' U. of N. ('., was also there. Alllioiigli 
economic conditions were .severe, they seemed 
to radiate some of the new hope of Ger- 

many. Under the guidance of Gingi and 
Karl, we took the famous Rhine River trip. 

In Switzerland and in Holland we found 
English spoken to such an extent that we 
did not feel any handicap in getting about. 
The peoples here are optimistic, hard work- 
ing, and seem to be very much like ourselves. 
At the U. of Leyden we met John Carmen, 
brother to Bob '52. In Geneva we met lead- 
ers of the World Council of Churches, and 
of the World's Student Christian Federa- 
tion, some of them old friends. We were 
amazed to find here, as in so many other 
University centers, many Americans, espe- 
cially medical students. Here we also got 
to know the Smith College Junior Year 
group. Success in foreign study depends so 
much on ability to handle the language. 

France proved for us to be a difficult 
country to understand. We saw at its best 
Christian compassion in the work of the 
CIMAUE, Protestant relief work. Here 
the strong tliough small Protestant commu- 
nity of France has taken responsibility for 
thousands of refugees from Spain, Russia 
and the countries behind the iron curtain^ 
making an attempt to integrate them into 
the normal life of the community. In a 
country already overcrowded, poor, and dis- 
organized this is no easy thing. 

[n Britain we arrived in time for the Cor- 
onation, and remained for seven weeks, 
spending much of the time with relatives. As 
Americans we can never understand this re- 
lationship of a people and their king or 
(|ueen. For them it is a vital and thrilling 
thing. It gives cohesion to the scatlerecl 
remnants of em|)ire and coTuinnnwealth. Lux- 
uries are few. Although the peojile are 
tired, the national spirit is superb. 

Even much as there is to see across lui- 
rope, we cannot understand it without know- 
ing something of the history, and of the 
people themselves. So many times we wished 
for more knowledge of history, and a speak- 
ing knowledge of l''rench at least 1

Bison Bows to : 

Another Bucknell Birthday 

No doubt many local club presidents wish 
that the founders of Bucknell had selected 
a month other than the month of February 
for the granting of the University Charter. 
The risk of unfavorable weather in Febru- 
ary sometimes discourages club planners 
from scheduling Birthday Celebrations at 
this time of the year. 

Perhaps all of us should re-read Chapter 
1, "A Trying Journey" in Dr. Theiss' Cen- 
tennial History of Bucknell University to 
understand that our travel difficulties in Feb- 
ruary are as nothing compared to the hard- 
ships our founding fathers encountered. 

This year about twenty local Alumni Clubs 
celebrated Charter Day with the traditional 
Bucknell Birthday Cake and messages of 
encouragement from more than a dozen 
faculty members who devoted their mid- 
year vacation to this unselfish service. 

On the campus the granting of the Uni- 
versity Charter was noted by a soecial stu- 
dent chapel service addressed by Dr. Harold 
R. Husted, Minister of the First-Park Bap- 
tist Church, Plainfield, New Jersey. Dr. 
Husted is the father of four Bucknell sons. 
Following the chapel service, a luncheon 
commemorating the founding fathers was 
held by a group of Bucknell Baptist Minis- 
ters and other campus visitors. Dr. Ronald 
V. Wells, Executive Director of the Board 
of Education of the American Baptist Con- 
vention, was the speaker at the luncheon. 

Alumni residing in the campus area met 
on Tuesday, February 9 at the Lewisburg 
Club to celebrate Bucknell's Charter Day. 
The speaker of the evening was Dr. Earl 
Morgan Richards ' 13, MS19, Honorary 
DSC46, a former member of the Board of 
Trustees and Vice President of Republic 
Steel Company, Cleveland. 

And what was accomplished at Bucknell's 
Birthday Parties? Well, in the first place, 
several thousand Bucknellians and their fam- 
ilies enjoyed an evening of fellowship and 
benefited from hearing the latest news from 
the Bucknell campus. Every report from the 
campus was designed to give Alumni the 
benefit of the latest information concerning 
Bucknell's progress and plans with the hope 
that we will all be encouraged to promote 

enrollment of the better local high school 
graduates at the University. 

Other benefits enjoyed by a number of 
clubs included the establishment of High 
School Contact Committees. The growth of 
admissions work in clubs is to be commend- 
ed. This type of assistance to our admis- 
sions officers is certain to be reflected in wid- 
er and better selection of entering students. 
Some clubs held elections, thus insuring con- 
tinued alumni activity. A number of clubs 
that will not be meeting again before June 
took care of the important task of selecting 
their representatives to attend the meeting 
of the Annual Assembly of the General 
Alumni Association on June 12. Still others 
canvassed their membership to select can- 
didates to be submitted to the proper com- 
mittees for election to the Board of Direc- 
tors of the General Alumni Association. 
Some looked ahead and chose candidates for 
nominations for the 1955 election of an 
Alumni Trustee. 

Bucknell's Annual Charter Day celebra- 
tion is here to stay, but in order to be of 
maximum effectiveness, its functioning must 
be of service and fellowship to the local 
Alumni group, as well as to the University. 

How Large Should Bucknell Be? 

Try out that question with any group of 
Alumni and you are likely to get a variety 
of answers. The 1909 gal believes Bucknell 
should be the same size as it was when she 
attended. The 1919 man believes Bucknell's 
size in 1919 was about right, and so on. 
These answers point out the fact that the 
average alumnus of Bucknell — like his fel- 
low alumni of other Universities all over 
the country — is not unsympathetic towards 
the present day Bucknell or to the Bucknell 
of the future. But it seems to be generally 
acknowledged that, even in this violently 
changing world, the average alumnus likes 
to feel that something of the college of his 
day persists in the college of now and of 
tomorrow. Bucknell is fortunate in that its 
growth has been gradual and the oldest alum- 
nus visiting the campus today can see much 
evidence of a retention of the older facili- 
ties and spirit present in his or her student 

It is our hope that THE BUCKNELL 
ALUMNUS will always carry a liberal por- 
tion of material telling about the Bucknell 

of the past. But as Alumni helping to 
shape the future of the world as well as 
of Bucknell we might well consider the Uni- 
versity of today and of tomorrow. 

Not to be overlooked in consideration of 
University size is the prediction of things 
to come in the matter of college enrollment. 
For instance, a recent survey reported, af- 
ter carefully surveying population trends 
and Office of Education statistics, that 
enrollment in all colleges now is 2% mil- 
lion which constitutes about 26% of the 
8 million of college age. (About one of 
four go to college). By 1960, college age, 
about 9K million. And by 1970, about 13^ 
million. These figures seem to indicate that 
colleges should prepare for increasing en- 
rollments. How big should Bucknell be? 

Dr. J. Orin Oliphant, professor of history, 
for his splendid editorial work on the 80- 
page brochure The Beginnings of Bucknell 
University— A Sampling of the Documents 
just published by the Bucknell University 
Press. His scholarly introduction brings to- 
gether a detailed account of the Baptist ef- 
forts in the 1830's that finally led to the es- 
tablishment of the University at Lewisburg. 
It is a fine companion piece to add to your 
copy of Dr. Theiss' Centennial History of 
Bu-cknell University. If you do not have a 
copy of the History now is the time to obtain 
both. Send $3.50 to the Alumni office.

Campus Squirrels :

it when he read a reporter's story about the 
theft of 2,025 pigs. 

"That's a lot of pigs," he growled, and 
called the farmer to check the copy. 

"Is it true that you lost 2,025 pigs?" he 
asked. "Yeth," lisped the farmer. 

"Thanks," said the wise editor and cor- 
rected the copy to read "two sows and 25

AN ENGINEER — Little Johnny was 
asked to describe a bolt and nut and turned 
in this ,gem— "A bolt is a thing like a stick 
of harci metal such as iron with a square 
bunch on one end and a lot of scratching 
wound around the other end. A nut is just 
like a bolt only opposite, being a hole in a 
little square bunch of iron sawed off^^short, 
with wrinkles around inside the hole." 

All right — you describe it 1 

SO RIGHT!— A Bucknellians wife was 
talking with another Bucknellian's wife at 
a recent club meeting. The subject of their 
respective husbands' jobs were up for dis- 
cussion. The first wife said— "My husband 
is a safety expert." 

"What does a safety expert do?" queried 
No. 2. 

"Well, if we women did it, they'd call it 
nagging," replied the wiser of the two.

Desfite the increasing financial aid given to colleges hy U . S. 
business, an estimated 50% of the country's private educational plants 
operate in the red. 

If industry is to get more and better trained college graduates, 
corporations must provide nnich of the cash yieeded by colleges to 
expand their facilities and improve their teaching, and work more 
closely xvith colleges on business' needs, TIME, The Weekly Nexvs- 
fmagazine, said in its business essay in the ]an. 18 issue. 

Businessmen and educators have not always recognized their 
"clear mutuality of interest . . . The rapidly expanding JJ . S. economy 
has made college graduates more important than ever to industry. In 
turn, universities must depend increasingly on corporations for con- 
kributions, since high taxes have all hut cut off the floiv of the big 
ijtdividiial contributions that built the private schools." 

Feiv people know how much industry already contributes. In 
1954 business will donate well over %60 million to private colleges, 
plus additional funds for research aiid equipment. 

At present, much corporate help covers only tuition, about half 
the cost of putting a student through school. Donations are sporadic 
—a flood in high-profit years, a trickle in bad; too many contributions 
are for specific scientific projects which tend to unbalance the college 

"JJ. S. business is taking the lesson to heart," TIME says. "Cor- 
porate gifts are not regarded merely as a means of spending cheap tax 
dollars, but as a blue-chip investment that will eventually pay heavy 
dividends. Some 1,500 companies have learned that the best way to 
give is through corporate foundations . . . 

"By investing heavily in periods of high earnings, a backlog can 
be accumulated to insiire a steady stream of funds, thus enable edu- 
cators to plan years ahead."

The Cover Picture 

Here's your last chance to see a picture of STEPHEN WILLIAM TAYLOR HALL, 
for when classes close this June a major rebuilding project will begin. This was the first 
building on College Hill, erected in 1848-1849. Known as the ACADEMY BUILDING 
from the beginning of the University until the discontinuance of the Academy in 1916, it 
was renamed in that year in honor of the man who had general direction of the work of 
establishing Bucknell University. When the rebuilding is completed modern facilities for 
the pre-medical program will be provided. An auditorium, recitation rooms, offices, and 
laboratories for work in zoology, embryology, histology, bacteriology, physiology, and 
anatomv will be included in the project.

Reunion to Feature Alumiii Weekend, June 11-14 

The 1954 Alumni Reunion — Commence- 
ment Program will open Friday, June 11 
and continue through Mondaj-, June 14, 
with Saturday. June 12 designated as AU- 
Alumni Reunion Day. The pattern of 
events will follow the revitalized program 
of the past few j-ears with each reunion 
class planning features that will make this 
the best one yet. This ."Ml-University cele- 
bration has improved with experience 
gained as the j'ears go by. 

So far as campus plans are concerned 
everj-thing is ready. The reunion classes 
and other alumni are cordially invited to 
come and enjoy the entertainment pro- 
vided. The biggest general alumni event 
will, of course, be the .\ll-.-\lumni Lunch- 
eon to which alumni, students, facult}'. 
parents, and friends are invited at 1 :00 
P. M. on Saturday, June 12 in the Davis 


.\s soon as you reach Lewisburg you 
will want to head for the Carnegie Build- 
ing (the old library). There you will 
register, receive your room and ticket 
reservations and a schedule of the loca- 
tion of your own class reunion and other 
weekend activities. For those without 
advance reservations, ticket needs and a 
directory of events will be supplied at the 
registration headquarters in the Carnegie 


Classes holding five-year reunions ("those 
whose class numerals end in "4" and "9") 
plus the Emeritus Club (1884-1903) and 
the Class of 1953 plus the graduating 
seniors of the Class of 1954, have been 
provided special class reunion headquar- 
ters for both the morning business meeting 
and the afternoon social gathering. The 
schedule of meeting places, subject to 
.some last minute adjustments, is as fol- 

.\t the morning meeting reunioners will 
meet for a general handshaking, to per- 
form necessary business, to receive the 
anniversary L'Agmda, regale themselves 
with their class regalia, and pose for their 
group picture. Quite a large order for a 
one hour meeting so better be prompt at 
your class headquarters at 10:30 A. M. 

12:00 NOON 

Promptly at noon brief ground breaking 
ceremonies for the new F. W. Olin Sci- 
ence Building will be held on the site 
opposite the Engineering Building and 
just a few steps from your Alumni Head- 


Immediately following the ground 
breaking ceremonies the traditional parade 
to the gymnasium will take place. Parade 
marshals will place each reunion group 
back of its class banner and, headed by the 
reunion band, will move as a body to the 
Davis Gymnasium where the All-Alumni 
Luncheon will be served. Alumni will be 
seated by class groups so it is very impor- 
tant that you join the parade with your 
own group. The luncheon will be sub- 
stantial, the speeches few and short, the 
opportunities to meet Bucknellians of all 
classes and the graduating seniors ample. 
The luncheon is the feature gathering 
place for all Bucknellians. 


Following the luncheon the pace will 
slow down to a gallop and the reunioners 
will meander to the class social headquar- 
ters (shown on the schedule below) for 
relaxing and reminiscing. For non-re- 
union classes and, in fact, for all who can 
find the time we recommend a tour of "the 
four-mile" (see page 10) and a visit to the 
Bucknell Treasure Room in the new Ellen 
Clarke Bertrand Library where an exhibit 
of rare Bucknelliana will be on display.

Who Is '99's Busiest 
Retired Member? 




Probably few graduates of Bucknell 
have had a more varied experience than 
George S. Tilley, youngest member of the 
reunion Class of 1899, who was only thir- 
teen years of age when he first appeared 
on the campus in short pants. 

After graduation he spent two years at 
a school of the U. S. Revenue Cutter Ser- 
vice and five years at Harvard, one year in 
the College and four j'ears being a re- 
search Fellow working on atomic weights. 
His Harvard training was interrupted 
twice by a return to Bucknell as an in- 
structor in chemistrv in 1904-5 and again 
in 1907-8. Leaving' Harvard in 1909, he 
spent a year in the research laboratory of 
the General Electric Company at Sche- 
nectady, followed by two years at the 
U. S. Bureau of Standards in Washington. 

In 1912 he transferred his activities to 
the West as chemical engineer for the 
Smith Emery Company of San Francisco, 
working on the recovery of potash from 
Pacific giant kelp. With the coming of 
the first World War, he worked on the 
same problem at the U. S. Department of 
Agriculture plant at Summerland. Califor- 
nia, then helped design, build, and get into 
operation a similar plant on one of the 
San Juan Islands off the northwestern 
coast of Washington, after which he re- 
turned to the Summerland plant and 
stayed there until their research laboratory 
was closed at the end of the war. 

He next became associated with I. F. 
Laucas, Inc., in Seattle as research chem- 
ist and engineer, then went to their branch 
at Kobe, Japan. In 1922 he returned to 
the United States as research chemist at 
the U. S. Bureau of Mines station at 
Berkelejr, and later as acting superin- 
tendent of this station. 

While at Berkeley he had the luck (as 
he says) to hit upon some improvements 
in the metallurgy of aluminum and vana- 
dium, on which the Government allowed 
him to take out nine patents, and he soon 
found a firm that would pay for the com- 
mercial development of the patents and 
pay royalities for their use. Leaving the 
Bureau of Mines in 1925, he became engi- 
neer and consultant for this firm until 
1932, when their plant was closed. The 
process, however, was later used for mil- 
lions of pounds of aluminum during the 
second World War. 


Mernioii '29 Honored 

Dr. Michael S. Mermon, whose fore- 
sight and leadership provided a youth 
center for his hometown of Nesquehon- 
ing, was recently honored by 400 of his 
friends and neighbors when the center 
was formally dedicated. The celebration 
featured the presenting of a plaque by 
William S. Livengood. state secretary of 
internal affairs. The plaque, unveiled by 
Dr. Mermon's children, Jeanne Marie and 
James bears the following inscription: 
"This building dedicated February 
24, 1954, in tribute to Michael S. Mer- 
mon, foremost civic leader, interested 
in community improvements, chair- 
man of the Mauch Chunk Township 
Supervisors 1948-54, president of the 
State Association of Township Super- 
visors. John Bales, chairman; James 
Fauzio and Charles McGorry." 

Dr. Mermon, after graduation from 
Bucknell. was awarded the M.D. degree 
by Jefferson Medical College in 1933 and 
has practiced medicine in his home com- 
munity since then but has found time to 
help with many civic projects in Nesque- 

Coleman "'29 Advances in 
Remington Arms Company 

Rowland H. Coleman added a new title 
and many additional duties when he be- 
came vice president and assistant general 
manager of Remington Arms Company. 
Inc. in January 1954. In 1951 he was 
elected a vice president of the company 
and served as director of sales. 

Mr. Coleman joined the advertising de- 
partment of the Du Pont Company short- 
ly after graduation from Bucknell Uni- 
versity. In January 1937, he was trans- 
ferred to the Remington Arms Company 
as advertising manager. He was later 
made director of promotion. He became 
director of sales in 1944. 

Mr. Coleman is well known in the hard- 
ware and sporting goods industries, cur- 
rently being president of the American 
Hardware Manufacturers Association. He 
is a member of the University Club of 
Bridgeport, of which he is president. First 
Church of Christ, Fairfield, Pequot Yacht 
Club and the Countrj' Club of Fairfield. 
He lives with his wife, the former Esther 
Keim '30, and family on Catamount Road, 
Fairfield, Conn. 

In 1932 he dropped chemistry altogether. 
As far back as 1913 he had been carrying 
on fruit-growing as a side activity in 
Oregon and then in Washington. Now 
he divided his time between building 
houses in California and British Columbia 
and especially fruit-growing in British 
Columbia and, later, on Vashon Island in 
Puget Sound. 

In 1944 he sold his business at Vashon 
Island and worked for the State of Cali- 
fornia on the treatment of alkali feed water 
for use in steam boilers in State institu- 
tions and on automatic control of oil or 
gas-fuel firing and other problems until 
he was retired in 1951. Since then he has 
been "loafing", filling in some of the time 
by taking University Extension courses in 
Russian and in radio theory, with a cottage 
at Napa. California, for the hot weather, 
and for fall, winter, and spring a bachelor

Pliilantlircpy's Role in Chnlhation 
Harper & Brothers, New York. 206 P. 

This is not. as might be expected, a book 
on how to raise funds, but rather it is a 
philosophical summation of the experiences 
of one of the pioneers in the field of fund 

It is worth reading on several counts. 
First, a person such as Dr. Marts, who has 
helped to raise millions of dollars for hun- 
dreds of private organizations throughout 
the countrj- over a period of thirty years, 
obviously has something to say. Second. 
even though some of us might have hoped 
for some specific advice from the master as 
to how we might raise funds for such insti- 
tutions as Bucknell. nevertheless, it is heart- 
ening to have pointed out to us what a \'ital 
part voluntary philanthropy has played, is 
pla>-ing and will continue to play in Ameri- 
can History. 

Dr. Marts sets the tone of his book by 
prefacing it with a quotation by Alexis de 
Tocqueville on the occasion of his visit to 
America in 1830. The selection is a most 
happy and timely one for it emphasizes one 
of the strongest phases of our society. Here 
is a portiin of the quotation : 

"Americans of all ages, all conditions, 
and all dispositions consistently form 
associations ... to give entertain- 
ments, to found seminaries, to build inns, 
to construct churches, to diffuse books, 
to send missionaries to the antipodes . . . 
The health of a democratic society 
may be measured by the quality of tlie 
functions performed by private citizens." 
Dr. Marts then goes on through seven 
chapters to point out how Americans are 
continuing to band together to support the 
many private enterprises that continue to 
abound in this country of ours. His faith 
in our way of doing things is refreshing and 
his hope for the future is stimulating. Those 
who read this book will close it with a feel- 
ing of reassurance in America and its peoples. 
Specifically, Dr. Marts has presented a 
brief history of philanthropy, related some 
stories about notable givers, given examples 
of how philanthropy has helped education, 
religion and public health in this country, 
described the trends in fund-raising from the 
old time financial agent to today's systematic 
campaign, spikes the rumor that the day of 
the big giver is over, discusses private 
foundations, corporation support and finally, 
forecasts a larger role for philanthropy in 
the future. 

For Bucknellians, it will be interesting to 
note that Dr. Marts calls back a number of 
his experiences while associated with this 
University. In retrospect this is not surpris- 
ing for one-third of his career as a fund- 
raiser was spent while serving as the head 
of F'.uckncll, first as Acting President from 
IW.1 to 19,38 and then as President until 1945.

There are few aspects of American life 
touching the emotion^ of the people that are 
more genuinely democratic and unifying 
than recreation. At a time when our Ameri- 
can democracy must be especially strong, 
unfortunately, separatist influences are be- 
coming more powerful as divisive tendencies 
in education and labor-management conflicts 
reveal. Although attracting too little notice 
in this respect from observers of the Ameri- 
can scene, our parks and playgrounds with 
the organized services they afford take on 
added importance as agents of the spirit of 
understanding and democracy. 

It is such a conviction as much as any- 
thing else that has sustained the enthusiasm 




of Weaver W. Pangburn '10, in the field of 
community recreation in which he has spent 
almost his entire working life. 

Pangburn started out, after graduation, in 
the educational field. After three years as 
instructor at Bucknell Academy with a sum- 
mer's study at the University of Chicago, he 
entered the graduate school of arts and sci- 
ences at Harvard to prepare for the teaching 
of history. A minor course in Social Ethics 
introduced him to the social problems of the 
country, led to a fellowshij) involving resi- 
dence at South End House settlement in 
Boston and changed the focus of his profes- 
sional training. 

Work ff)r War Camp Coinmunily Service, 
the USO (jf World War I, and military ser- 
vice during that war were folkiwed by em- 
ployment with the National Recreation Asso- 
ciation for some twenty-five years. Varied 
responsibilities were carried for this agency 
for promoting public recreation. They in- 
cluded administration of training cnurses in 
many cities, direction of national publicity, 
and field representation in a dozen metropoli- 
tan centers. Consolidation of public recrea- 
tion services in Washington, I). C. the re- 
orgatiization of public recreation in Balti- 
more, special studies in Boston, fliniinnali, City and other cities and the prcpara 
tion of numerous magazine and newspaper 
articles and radio programs were among his 
arlivitii^s with the Assixiation. 

With I"". Kllwood Allen, Pangburn devel- 
oped the tcclinique.s of the "comprehensive 
long range recreation plan", comprising

methods for scientifically locating parks and 
other recreation areas within the framework 
of both city planning and "social planning". 
Pangburn has been a leader nationally in 
bringing sociological thinking into city plan- 
ning for parks and recreation. He and Allen 
applied their pioneer methods to Baltimore, 
Portland, Maine and other cities while with 
the National Recreation Association and to 
many more conmiunities later under the aus- 
pices of the Allen Organization. 

In 1946, Pangburn resigned from the Na- 
tional Recreation Association and soon after 
became an associate of Allen in a broad field 
which embraced studies and plans for indus- 
trial corporations including Electrolux. Inter- 
national Business Machines, State Farm In- 
surance Companies, Central Soya and others, 
state and local public school systems, founda- 
tions, state and countv governments, city 
planning departments, park and recreation 
departments and community funds and coun- 
cils. The bulk of tliis activity was in the 
public field. There were nearly three years 
of work for the Maryland State Planning

Atlantic City 

On March 5 the Bucknell Alumni Club of 
Atlantic City and a number of trustees and 
alumni association officers gathered as the 
guests of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Yon at the 
Hotel Flanders in Atlantic City. 

Art and Ysabelle proved the perfect host 
and hostess as usual and provided the visitors 
with an elaborate entertainment program. At 
the Friday night dinner Robert K. Bell '20 
presided as master of ceremonies. The invo- 
cation was presented by Dr. Dayton L. Ranck 
'16, vice president and treasurer of the col- 
lege. A cablegram of greetings was re- 
ceived from the Hildreth family in Pakistan 
and acknowledged by the group. 

After introducing trustees Andrew R. 
Mathieson '20, Joseph Dent '20, Dr. Herbert 
Spencer, Dr. Bayard English, Berkeley V. 
Hastings '13, the toastmaster called for brief 
remarks from Mrs. Joseph B. Kelly (Emily

to try to interest even more Bucknellians in 
our meetings. It was agreed that we would 
plan on having a family picnic in the fall as 
our next gathering. Hank also urged those 
present to contribute to the annual giving 
program; and started a discussion on how 
best we can familiarize Chicago high school 
students with Bucknell. Before closing the 
business meeting, he thanked Jesse Syme for 
making all the necessary arrangements for 
our dinner meeting. We concluded by sing- 
ing the Alma Mater.

The annual Bucknell Charter Day Dinner, 
held at the Park Sheraton Hotel on Febru- 
ary 11, was one of the most enthusiastic gath- 
erings of alumni, parents and friends of the 
LTniversity ever scheduled. 

The invocation was pronounced by Dr. 
Newton C. Fetter '09 and a moment of silence 
was observed in memory of Charles Grant 
Shaffer '92 and Paul S. Althouse '12, club 
members who passed away recently. 

The guest of honor, Dr. Arnaud C. Marts, 
former president of Bucknell University, was 
introduced by Mrs. Emily Devine Kelly '21, 
president of the General Alumni Association. 
Dr. Marts in his stirring address reminisced 
on his pleasant memories of days spent on the 
Bucknell campus and paid fitting tribute to 
the Bucknell way of life which he continues 
to find in abundance among the Bucknell 
Alumni and friends of the University. 

The former alumni club officers and trus- 
tees introduced to the group by Mrs. Kelly, 
included Thomas J. Mangan '21, chairman of 
the Birthday Dinner Committee, Joseph D.

P. Davies '12, C. R. Leaber '19, and many 

In a very brief business meeting conducted 
by Wayne E. Knouse '40, president of the 
Metropolitan Alumni Association, there was 
presented for the consideration of the mem- 
bers the idea of sub-dividing the Metropoli- 
tan New York-New Jersey group into a sep- 
arate New York and a separate New Jersey 
organization. He asked that members give 
careful thought to the decision which will be 
presented in a letter to the entire membership 
within a short time, with the idea of coming 
to some decision before or at the May meet- 
ing of the Alumni Association in Newark. 
A nominating committee to select officers, to 
report at the May meeting was appointed as 
follows : Richard C. Shultz '40, Richard L. 
Moore '47, Robert E. List '48, Thomas J. 
Mangan '21.

Faculty to Make 
Education Survey 

Members of the faculty will undertake 
shortly a comprehensive survey of various 
aspects of Bucknell's educational program, 
it was announced by Dr. William H. Cole- 
man, vice president and dean of the Uni- 

The survey, as described by Dean Cole- 
man, will consist of a self-examination or 
study by the teaching staff of the major 
problems affecting the academic welfare 
of the college and may require a year for 

"It is essential, periodically, that an in- 
stitution of higher learning take stock of 
its academic resources — not simply for 
the sake of change — but to insure that it 
is functioning at maximum efficiency," 
Dr. Coleman said in explaining the pur- 
pose of the proposed study. 

"In view of the greatly increased college 
enrollments in prospect, now is the time 
to make plans for the future," he empha- 

The dean has just concluded a series of 
five dinner meetings with faculty members 
at which he outlined Bucknell's major 
academic problems as he saw them and 
invited the teachers to comment upon 
these or other problems which they 
deemed pertinent. 

A record was kept of the discussions at 
each of these meetings. In addition, fac- 
ulty members have been invited to sub- 
mit written suggestions on other problems 
or topics not already listed. 

A committee will be appointed by Dean 
Coleman to review this material with the 
object of determining what the major 
problems are that need to be examined. 
-A committee will then be assigned to each 
problem with directions to study it thor- 
oughly and come up with constructive 
suggestions for its solution. 

"We shall urge these committees to in- 
vite and evaluate student opinion in those 
instances where it may prove helpful," 
Dean Coleman said. 

One of the larger problems to be ex- 
amined by faculty members will be that 
of providing a basic educational concept 
that will serve the situation by which the 
University is confronted, the dean pointed 

"Is the Bucknell student broadly-edu- 
cated and what do we mean by the term 
broadly-educated" is another basic prob- 
lem that will come up for study along with 
the question "How can we create and main- 
tain at Bucknell a campus atmosphere con- 
ducive to learning?" Dr. Coleman added. 

The place of vocational training in our 
total educational program and the extent 
and nature of the contributions which 
Bucknell teachers should make to research 
arc some of the other topics listed for 

"The interest and cocjperation shown 
by faculty members in our preliminary 
discussions have been most encouraging," 
Dean Coleman declared as he expressed 
appreciation for the constructive approach 
which the faculty in general is making to 
this vital project. 

New Men's Dormitory 
To Be Built 

Another Second Century development 
was announced by the University's trustees 
at their annual meeting on the campus May 
8. It is anticipated that construction of the 
new dormitory and dining hall for freshman 
men at Bucknell will get under way in Sep- 

The new structure, which will house 220 
freshmen, will cost approximately $750,000, 
and will be financed lar.gely through gifts 
from trustees, alumni, and friends of the 
University, accordin,"^ to Dr. Joseph W. 
Henderson, chairman of the Board of Trus- 

The committee engaged in the selection of 
a new president for the University reported 
progress and will make another report at a 
special meeting of the Board to be held in 
Lewisburg at Commencement time. 

The Board re-elected all of its officers as 
well as five trustees whose terms had ex- 
pired. They include Alfred G. Freas, Bo- 
gota, N. T. : H. Boardman Hopper, Phila- 
delphia ; Dr. Daniel A. Poling, Philadel- 
phia; Dr. Harvey F. Smith, Harrsiburg; 
Dr. Herbert L. Spencer, New York City ; 
and Paul L. Troast, Passaic, N. J. 

Dr. Henderson named Paul L. Troast, of 
Passaic, N. J., as chairman of a special 
trustee committee for the new dormitory. 
Committee members include Robert K. Bell, 
of Ocean City, N. J.; Kemieth W. Slifer, 
Woodbury, N. J. ; Andrew R. Mathieson, 
Pittsburgh; Joseph D. Dent, New York 
City; and Dr. Walter B. McKinney, Phila- 

To be built of brick in Pennsylvania co- 
lonial style, the dormitory will be U-shaped 
and will consist of a center section two 
stories high and two wings that will be 
four stories high. Each wing will have 
rooms for 110 students plus a game room. 
The dining room and kitchen facilities will 
be located on the first floor of the center 
section and a large will take up the 
second floor. 

The building will be located between the 
Ellen Clarke Bertrand Library and the sta- 
dium. The grounds between the dormitory 
and the stadium will be graded for use as 
playing fields for soccer, softball, and other 
sports, for the use of the freshmen and resi- 
dents of the nearby fraternity houses.

Auction in Action 

To the lucrative strains of "Going, Going, 
Gone," the World United Service was busy 
making money on Saturday, March 1,3 at the 
Bison, familiarly known as diet's. Here the 
Greeks, along with members of tlic faculty, 
donated their services and wares to he auc- 
tioned to the student body, and together they 
offered some strange and unique commodities 
for sale. 

Jim Logue '54, Williamsport, and F,d Wil- 
liams '54, Brooklyn, were chief auctioneers 
for the occasion and managed lo keep the 
money rolling in. Members of the faculty 
offered to the highest bidder a ride up the 
hill to an 8 o'clock class, the typing of a 
theme in the future, fifty baby roosters, din- 
ner for two with an uncluiperoned evening 
by the fireplace, and the loan of a car for the 
night of tlic Senior Prom. 

Sororities gave up formal Greek pro- 
cedures in this battle of wils and wallets. 
The Alpha Phi's were willing to risk ilisli- 
pan hanfis and wash dishes for the highcsl 
bidding fraternity. The Aljilia Clii's donat- 
ed their elbow grease in a floor scrubbing 
project at a fraternity house, while the Tri 

Robert E, Maurer, instructor in English, 
and Lloyd M. Swartz, assistant professor 
of mathematics, have been chosen as 
recipients of the 1954 Faculty Award for 
Summer study awarded annually by the 
trustees of Bucknell University. This award 
provides a cash stipend for graduate study 
during the summer vacation. 

Dr. C3TUS H. Karraker, assistant pro- 
fessor of history, recently received word 
from London that he has been elected a 
Fellow of the Royal Historical Society of 
Great Britain. Membership in the Royal 
Historical Society is bestowed only upon 
those historians who were recommended 
and nominated by Fellows of the Society. 
The selection of Dr. Karraker was based 
on the strength of his recent publication 
Piracy Was A Business, which has received 
wide acclaim for its scholarship and literary 

Allan W. Flock, assistant professor of 
Music Education at Bucknell University, 
was guest conductor at North Central 
District Choral Festival (Coudersport) 
January 14, IS, 16; Northeast District 
Band Festival (Bloomsburg) February 
18, 19, 20: Mifflin County Choral Festival 
(Lewistown) March 11, 12, and 13. 

Miss Mary Jane Stevenson, dean of 
women, represented Bucknell at the an- 
nual conference of the National Associa- 
tion of Deans of Women at Washington, 
D, C, April 2-5. During the meeting Miss 
Stevenson participated in a panel discus- 
sion on the topic "The Improvement of 
Human Relations." 

"Othello" Features Alumni 

One of the outstanding features of the 
coming Alumni Weekend will be the June 
12th performance by Cap and Dagger of 
Shakespeare's "Othello", which promises to 
be an excellent production. Two perform- 
ances of the play have already been given 
and have been very well received. "Othello" 
is being- directed by Margo Hand '54, and 
stars Lionel Kranitz '55 as Othello, Myrna 
Haag '57 as Desdemona and Robert Blake 
'54 as lago. Also in the cast are five mem- 
bers of the English department faculty: 
Messrs. K. Ward Hooker, Frank W. Mer- 
ritt, Harry R. Garvin, Frank A. HofTman 
and Harvey M. Powers. 

Delts provided liat girls and water carriers 
fur intramural softball. K.'ip])a Deltas and 
Pi Phi's served dinner to llie highest paying 
fraternities, while the I 'hi Mus offered to 
wash cars. 

According to the fraternity men, the way 
to a Sem Gem's pockclhook is through her 
stomach. Conse(|Uently, the Samniies auc- 
tioned off six stc;di dinners, the Phi Psi's 
served a meal to the highest bidding sorority 
pledge class, and the Phi Gams gave a sjia- 
ghetti dinner to the sorority paying the most 
for their services. The K;i|ipa Sigs were 
willing to clean a sorority suite, while the 
KDR's generously fjffered the cleaning ser- 
vices of their pledges to the highest bidding 
fraternity. The Theta Chi's came up with 
;m enticing offer rif two Senior Prom tickets, 
along with a dale, if necessary. 

It is agreed that this is a painless mcllmd

Harr3r Wolcott Robbins, Chairman of 
Bucknell's Department of English since 
1923, will retire this June. 

That terse statement will give pause for 
thought to thousands of Bucknellians, past 
and present, for Robbie is as much an in- 
stitution at Bucknell as is the Vaughan 
Literature Building in which he has his 
office. In fact, Robbie is more of an insti- 
tution. He was here before the Lit Build- 
ing. He also antedates the Davis Gym- 
nasium, the Botany Building, most of the 
Engineering Building, the Stadium, the 
Golf Course. Roberts Hall, Hunt Hall, the 
Women's Dining Hall, the Ziegler Infir- 
mary, Bucknell Lodge, the Bison, the 
Library and the Heating Plant. In fact, 
it is not too far from the truth to say that 
a University has been built around him. 

To sum up a teaching career of 45 years, 
31 of them at Bucknell, is no mean feat, 
but since the ideal college is Mark Hop- 
kins (or Harry Robbins) on one end of a 
log and a student at the other end, it might 
be well for us to study what the students 
said about him last year when they dedi- 
cated their yearbook, L'Agenda, to him. 
Here it is: 

"Beneath the seeming New England 
austerity that is characteristic of Dr. 
Harry W. Robbins lies a Frostian hu- 
mour, a gentle understanding of the 
minds of men, and a scholarly mind rich 
in literature and in life. During his 
seventy years, 'Robbie' has been a foot- 
ball plaj'er and a journeyman printer, 
an army captain, a high school teacher, 
and for the past thirty years, a professor 
of English. He reads a French or Ger- 
man text or an old Anglo-Saxon manu- 
script with the same ease with which he 
attacks a problem in semantics. Those 
of us who have spoken to him of life 
and its problems know that he is a phi- 

"Dr. Robbins was graduated from 
Brown University in 1908, and received 
the degree of Doctor of Philosophy 
from the University of Minnesota in 
1923. He has been chairman of the 
Bucknell Department of English for thirty 
years, during which time he has been 
on numerous important faculty commit- 
tees, a foundation member and president 
of the Bucknell chapter of Phi Beta 
Kappa, and an adviser to Sigma Tau 
Delta. He is a member of the American 
Association of University Professors, 
the Modern Language Association, the 
Early English Text Society, and Le 
Societe des Anciens Textes Francais. 

"Best known as the co-editor of the 
widely printed Western World Literature, 
for which- he completed several transla- 
tions, Dr. Robbins has also published edi- 
tions of Le Miroir de Seinte Eglise, Rich- 
ard Rolle's 'Devout Meditaciomn,' and 
worked on a translation of The Romance 
of the Rose. 

"The rigors of academic duties have 
never succeeded in hiding the twinkle 
in his eyes, his almost boyish satisfac- 
tion over a good bridge hand, or the dry 
wit expressed in muted asides. Students 
who penetrate the Vermont severity dis- 
cover that 'Robbie' is both warm and 


kind, and that he has a keen awareness 
and an understanding that can spring 
onlj' from years of studying, of reading, 
and of living." 
In making' the presentation at Senior 

Chapel last year, the students also said: 
"He has become a tradition at Buck- 
nell University, a tradition so well es- 
tablished that not one of us will ever 
forget the shivers of our first oral quiz 
or the fact that Agamemnon died in the 
bathtub. We hope that this L'Agenda 
will be in some small way a tribute to a 
man whose presence at this university 
has stood for all that is worthy and rich 
in the academic tradition." 
Obviously Robbie's claim to fame is not 

mere longevity. Yet much of what he has 

Harry Wolcott Robbins 

done for Bucknell over these many years 
has received little notice. As any former 
student will understand, Robbie is not one 
to advertise. 

The bulk of Robbie's efforts naturalh' 
have gone into building and improving the 
work of the English Department. One of 
his first innovations in that Department 
was the introduction, in 1927, of an honors 
course or seminar. At that time the idea 
was unusual in American Colleges, for it 
lay stress on the reading of literature and 
eliminated almost all requirements of class 
attendance during the student's final 

The seminar, which has manj' features 
of a graduate course, was established pri- 
marily for seniors who wished to obtain 
honors in English, but from the first grad- 
uate students were admitted. Altogether 
the work of the course is a satisfactory 
contribution to the "mastery of the field", 
which is considered to be the basis for the 
awarding of the A.M. degree. 

Probably the most important contribu- 
tion to the Department was the introduc- 
tion of the World Literature course. This 
started in 1929 as an evening course en- 
titled "An Introduction to World Litera- 
ture" and made use of the faculties of the 
various language departments. The course 
ran along for several years, was dropped 

temporarily and then blossomed forth in 
1934 as "World Literature". Originally 
the course carried through to the middle 
of the 18th Century, but in later years it 
was developed to cover all Western Lit- 
erature from Homer to the present. The 
purpose of the course was to provide back- 
ground for later advanced courses. In this 
work. Professor Robbins worked in co- 
operation with the then Professor Cole- 
man and the two eventually edited an 
anthology entitled Western World Litera- 
ture. This book filled a definite need in 
college work and subsequently was adopt- 
ed by colleges throughout the country. As 
late as 1951 it had gone into its 15th print- 

In 1945 an Advanced World Literature 
Course was introduced for students wish- 
ing to do more intensive work similar to 
that in the Great Book courses at other 

Another innovation made by Robbie, 
was a system of cumulative tests for En- 
glish students. These tests encouraged 
the student to remember work of previous 
semesters instead of assuming that when 
the final examination is passed, he is 
"through with the course". These tests 
also serve as a sort of comprehensive ex- 
amination for majors in the field and pro- 
vide proof of general mastery of the sub- 

Behind all of this work was the basic 
idea of getting students to think, the ob- 
vious sign of a^ great teacher. 

It is also interesting to note that of the 
14 Committees on which Robbie was 
elected to serve during his 31 years at 
Bucknell, most of them concerned them- 
selves with academic matters. He was 
constantly on the side of scholarship and 
it is no coincidence that as his committee 
work was lightened these last few years, 
the one major assignment he retained was 
that of member of the Academic Standards 

Committee titles and functions have 
changed greatly during the 31 years Rob- 
bie has been at Bucknell, but from the 
names of those on which he was asked to 
serve over the years, it can be seen that 
he has always been regarded as a scholar. 
Under five presidents, from Hunt to Hil- 
dreth, his opinion was sought in such fields 
as Curriculum and Courses, Advanced De- 
grees, Student Measurement, Faculty Ad- 
visory, and Academic Standards. For the 
past five years he has served as Chairman 
of the Cordinating Committee of the Lib- 
eral Arts Group, although there is no 
doubt that he served in that capacity for 
many years before the title was created. 
During the administration of President 
Rainey, for example, he served as Chair- 
man of the Language Group, and as such 
was a member of the Administrative 
Council. His longest tenure was on the 
Advanced Degrees Committee on which 
he served eight years before becoming 
Chairman for another nine years. 

The records do not show, however, one 
paradox in his make-up. A humanist and 
a linguist, he is also, strangely enough, an 
amateur statistician. It comes out in his 
bridge and when he needs facts to back 
up an argument. 

Nor do the records show his love for his 
native Vermont, to which he retreats reg- 
ularly for his summer vacations. This 
may account in part for the fact that his 
31 years in Pennsylvania apparently have 
had little efifect on his nature. He still is 
a Vermonter in appearance, manner, 
speech or silence.

Brownell '43 Aids in 
Tumor Research 

Since Gordon L. Brownell received his 
B.S. degree with a major in physics from 
Bucknell in 1943 he has achieved fame for 
his research in the fields of physics and 
bio-physics. Obviously, his achievements 
have been credited in the reports in pro- 
fessional journals but more and more his 
work has received attention in the promi- 
nent periodicals. In 1951 both Colliers and 
Look carried articles describing his research 
acti\'ities. In April Time magazine reported 
the stor\- of his contribution in helping save 
the life of a young patient at Massachusetts 
General Hospital, Boston. 

Time reported the case (April 5, 1954) 
as follows : 

"Holly Jane Hyde, daughter of a Rhode 
Island chicken and apple farmer, had been 
a lively youngster and, with her brilliant 
coppery hair, was as bright as a new penny. 
But when, at seven, Holly went into second 
grade, she had trouble with reading. Then 
Holly's mother noticed that sometimes she 
seemed not to understand what was said to 
her ; she gazed vacantly into space and 
occasionally picked up her luncheon sand- 
wich and tossed it across the room for no 
evident reason. 

"At first the doctors could not be sure of 
the reason, either. It might be the petitinal 
form of epilepsy, or a brain tumor. At 
Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, 
Neurosurgeon \\'illiam H. Sweet tried the 
electroencephalogram ("brain-wave m a - 
chine') and got indications of a local dis- 
order, but nothing definite enough to justify 
major brain surgery. Another standard test 
(in itself fairly drastic), involving the in- 
jection of air into the brain cavities, showed 
nothing. Xot long ago Holly Hyde would 
have had to wait for her condition to worsen, 
imperiling her understanding of language 
and perhaps endangering her life, before the 
doctors could have felt certain of what to do. 

"But Dr. Sweet had worked with the 
Massachusetts Institute of Technology's 
Physicist (jordon Brownell to develop a 
scarming machine that shows, with a high 
degree of accuracy, not only whether a brain 
tumor is present but, if so, precisely where 
it is. Dr. Sweet gave Holly an injection of 
radioactive arsenic, which has an affinity for 
tumors. An hour later she lay on a cot with 
her head between two scintillation counters 
to which scanning mechanisms were attached. 
Soon, as the counters picked up the gamma 
rays, the robot pens showed that the arsenic 
had concentrated in one part of the lower 
forebrain. This showed that Holly did 
indeed have a tumor. Another scan showed 
that it was left of center, and (within a third 
of an inch; how far. The machine, which 
Dr. Brownell had helped to work out under 
an A EC grant, told Dr. Sweet just where 
to operate. He removed an invading tumor. 
That was a year ago. 

"Last week Third-Grader Holly Hyde 
fKjunccd into the hospital board room so 
that American Cancer Society officials could 
see for themselves that she now seems fully 
recovered. Her reading has improved, 
she has no more spells and feels, as she 
chirped, 'fine.' 

"Drs. Sweet and Brownell have run their 
tally of scanned subjects (including normal 
volunteers for comparison) to well over 200. 
The machine, they hope, will save many a 
patient from dangerous surgery inside the 
<kull for the .sole purjwsc of getting infor- 
mation and will make the operation far 
surer in case.s where a lurking tumor is 


Boerner '32 Serves 
in Germany 

Alfred V. ("Mickey") Boerner '32, is in 
charge of the U. S. information and cultural 
program in Germany. As Director of the 
Office of Public Affairs since October 26, 
1952, he has played a large role in building 
firm ties of understanding between the people 


of Germanj' and the United States. Under 
him are about 2,000 employees, and his cur- 
rent budget is about $16,000,000. 

Five different groups of workers are en- 
gaged in the program. Through 26 informa- 
tion centers — Amerika Haeuser — and about 
one hundred local libraries which were begun 
by this program, books and magazines, lec- 
tures and concerts, documentary moving pic- 
tures, and English-language lessons are avail- 
able to all. Each of the larger libraries has 
from ten to twenty-five thousand books and 
about 100 magazines. The significance of 
this enterprise of American goodwill cannot 
be overestimated. 

The other groups of workers are engaged 
in distributing news stories and pamphlets, 
exhibiting documentary films ; exchanging 
about 500 students, teachers, and research 
scholars ; carrying on educational relations ; 
and studying the conditions which result from 
the division of Germany into two zones. 

"Mickey" came to this high position 
through his consistently important work 
since his arrival in 1946. After his days at 
Bucknell, where he was intercollegiate mid- 
dleweight boxing champion, he studied at the 
University of Michigan and in France and 
Germany. On returning to the United States, 
he taught at Washington and Jefferson Col- 
lege and did public relations work in Ohio. 
Early in World War II he began broadcast- 
ing comments on international affairs over a 
[Pittsburgh station. 

In the fall of 1944 he joined the Office of 
War Information in New York and soon was 
in London as head of the policy desk for Ger- 
many and also as a member of the psycholog- 
ical warfare division of SHAKE i-nder Gen- 
eral Eisenhower. He followed the victorious 
American troops into Luxembourg in March, 
1945, and then into I'rankfurt am Main the 
next month to brfiadcast to the (jerman peo- 
ple. His initial phrase, "Guten AbenrI," be- 
came so i)opular as a result of his excellent 
commentaries, that he has been known ever 
since as "Hcrr Guten Abend" and was voted 
Germany's most popular radio commentator. 

Pangburii '10 Puts You 
in a Park 

(Continued from Page 5) 

came a park and recreation consultant on 
his own. However, the past two years have 
been nearly as busy as ever with Allen and 
in service in Trenton, N. J., Columbus, Ga., 
Dade County. Fla., and Pittsfield, Mass., for 
Community Chests and Councils of America, 
Inc. and Community Research Associates. 
Currently he is engaged with Allen in replan- 
ning the parks and beaches of Long Beach, 
California and designing one of the first 
state parks for the State of Delaware. 

Pangburn is a member of the American 
Association of Social Workers, the American 
Recreation Society, the National Recreation 
Association and an associate member of the 
American Institute of Park Executives. He 
is a former president of the National Social 
Work Publicity Council. He is a former 
chairman of the Citizens Advisory Committee 
on city planning and a member of the Cos- 
mopolitan Club in Montclair, N. J., where 
he has resided since 1924. His wife, (Kath- 
arine E. Greene) was Smith, 1915. There 
are two sons, both married, Edward living 
in Amarillo, Texas and John, in Montclair. 

During his professional career Pangburn 
has seen a healthy ripening of public appre- 
ciation of participant recreation in the United 
States. Against a background of profession- 
alization of much sport, colossal develop- 
ment of commercial amusement and the mul- 
tiplicity of gadgets that encourage "spec- 
tatoritis" he has seen the steady growth of 
national, state, county and city parks, the 
spread of city playgrounds, the immense 
growth of crafts, the popularity of good 
music and hobbies, the expansion of swim- 
ming pools and beaches and the vogue of 
community forms of recreation such as pic- 
nicking, square and folk dancing and com- 
munity center programs. 

These simple, healthy developments enrich 
the physical, emotional and spiritual life of 
the people and help keep our democracy 
strong, in Pangburn's view. 

Help Week-1954 Style 

This year, various organizations on the 
Bucknell campus have been busy with proj- 
ects relating to a "Help Week" program. 

Their work has been facilitated through 
the Social Service Commission which has 
been organized on campus to form a clearing 
house for community service projects. The 
purpose of this clearing house is to receive 
from community leaders descriptions of com- 
munity projects which they feel are worth- 
while and to pass them along to student or- 
"nnizations. Sororities and fraternities have 
done much to undertake these civic projects. 
The clearing house also gives an estimate of 
the time and material re(|uircd for each proj- 
ect and keeps a record of those projects that 
are in progress and those that have been com- 

.A.mong the projects which have been un- 
dertaken this year by Bucknell students are 
reading to shut-ins in Lewisburg and vicinity, 
sewing and menditig in the Lewisburg Health 
Center, and clothing drives for overseas re- 
lief. The sororities and fraternities also held 
their annual Christmas parties for the chil- 
dren in the Lewisburg area. 

He still broadcasts once a week, despite the 
heavy burden of official duties.

Lets Hike "The 
Four-Mile" Again 

For too many years the old "Four-AIile" 
has been neglected. Some say it no longer 
exists. Though slightly changed in spots 
by reason of newer road construction, it still 
exists and to prove it a map of the campus 
with the old "Four-Mile" drawn to scale 
is shown on the facing page. The map is 
the work of Richard B. Ulp, a sophomore, 
of Xorthumberland, who probably took the 
tour. But Dr. Dalzell M. Griffith '23, pro- 
fessor of civil engineering, who knows every 
foot of the way. could supply all the details 
from memory. 

The resulting map is published for the 
benefit of older Bucknellians who have made 
the trip many times and for the newer 
alumni who reached the campus after that 
bus}' thoroughfare no longer was used for 
late afternoon "fussing." Was the "Four- 
Mile" popular? Well, we can remember 
(in the spring of 1919) Prexy Harris, in 
his long black topcoat and derby hat, tak- 
ing his daily constitutional around the course. 
'Twas said he learned a lot about college 
students and such on his daily jaunts. 

The ritual of "walking the Four-Mile" 
was flourishing in 1919. But when did the 
pleasant custom begin? And when did it 
end ? And why did it end ? And who has 
a picture of life on the "Four-Mile?" Any- 
body have a picture of Dr. John H. Harris 
taken on the hike? We'd like to publish it 
for the benefit of all alumni. 

Of course, the old dusty road finally had 
to give waj' to smooth macadamized sur- 
faces but you can still take the walk — or 
ride, if you are so inclined. Better plan to 
include the tour in your program when you 
are back for Alumni Reunion Weekend on 
June 12 — or the next time you return to, 
the campus — and make it soon ! 

One of the landmarks you should spot 
quickly is the old willow tree and the con- 
crete bridge, with iron pipe railing, that 
crosses the brook. Both the tree and the 
bridge will be found on Moore Avenue op- 
posite the Christy Mathewson Gateway to 
the Memorial Stadium. 'Tis said that one 
of the Semites and that second lieutenant of 
the SATC days did some important fussing 
at that spot. Well, you supply your own 
nostalgic scenes and people them with the 
folks of your era. 

An>'way. there's a big gap in the log of 
the old "Four-Mile" that you can help to fill. 
Can you supply some of the details? We'd 
welcome letters telling us some of your ex- 
periences. Just address them to the Editor, 
can't take the time to write a letter, please 
clip the coui)on below and send it in. 

Vou bet I'll help with the "Four-Mile" 
History. Here arc my answers : 

1. I first walked the "Four-Mile" in 


2. I last walked the "Four-Mile" in

The graduating class of 1954 leaves Bucknell, not as 
separate individuals, but as a group of friends who have 
oained much from associations in campus activities and in 
contacts with the faculty and administration. 

They leave behind a part of the Bucknell Family, but 
enter the world where many alumni have gone before. With 
this graduating class go the friendshi'ps they have made here.

The graduating class of 1954 has realized that knowledge

The Fimctioniiig of the Men's 
Student Assembly 

Bv ToHX F. Chironna '55, President ■ 

(Editor's Note) — A number of altcmpts 
luiz'e been made to set up a student organisa- 
tion for the men on the Buekuell eainpiis to 
perform the functions that the IVoinen's 
Student Government Association does for 
the coeds. The program of student govern- 
ment on Bucknell's campus has needed sucli 
an organisation to zi'ork under the direction 
of the Student Faculty Congress zvhich is the 
overall group composed of students, faculty 
and administration. We are glad to report 
that in 1953 the Men's Student Assembly 
came into being and icc believe you ici7/ be 
interested in this report of the activities un- 
dertaken thus far by the nezu organisation. 

Last May 13. 1953, nine Bucknell students 
solemnly stood in Chapel waiting to be sworn 
in as members of the Men's Student Council. 
The inauguration of these gentlemen marked 
the initial step in the organization and func- 
tion of the Men's Student Assembly, a gov- 
erning-body formulated strictly for the male 
students. After several previous attempts to 
create such an organization, the desires of 
the administration and students for such a 
governmental body were finally consummated. 

The authority and functions of the M. S. A. 
were formulated principally by former male 
student officers of the institution with assis- 
tance from the administration. The men 
composed the Constitution, which is the sole 
governing body of the group. Based on the 
structure of the Federal Government, the 
Assembh- is divided into two sections : the 
House of Representatives and the Council. 
The members of the House of Representa- 
tives express the opinions and grievances of 
the male populace. Every fraternity, all 
dormitory floors, the non-fraternity men, the 
commuters, and Bucknell Village are equally 
represented. The Coimcil operates through 
nine students annually elected by the entire 
male student body. This Council, the more 
influential of the two sections, reserves the 
right to veto or accept any action of the 
House. Through its meetings the problems 
and controversies of the male student govern- 
ment are solved. 

The M. S. A. deals with problems of every 
nature. At the moment the subject of the 
use and possession of automobiles at Bucknell 
is being debated. In the past, the authoriza- 
tion of automobile permits was strictly an 
administrative rcspoasibility. Now the 
.M. S. A. is collecting data and statistics in 
an effort to formulate a new policy which 

will be acceptable to the faculty, the admin- 
istration, and tlie students. 

Another project of the organization deals 
with the permission to sell refreshments in 
the dormitories. Though the privilege of 
selling any article in the dormitory demands 
the approval of the Dean of Men, the pleas 
of the male students were heard with refer- 
ence to this problem, and acted upon by the 
M. S. A. These, along with numerous other 
controversial questions, are continuously be- 
ing reviewed and discussed for the best in- 
terest of the men. 

The M. S. A. was formulated to uphold 
the interest and welfare of the men. This 
is clearly illustrated by the recent disciplinary 
action taken by the Council. Two male Buck- 
nell students were confronted with disorderly 
conduct charges. The Council was invited to 
try this case. After hearing the statements 
of the two men, the Council reviewed the 
situation at great length. After very careful 
and detailed consideration of the factors in- 
volved, the Council members established an 
appropriate punishment for the offense. Pre- 
senting the verdict to the Administration and 
explaining the reasons for their decision, the 
Administration Disciplinary Committee 
unanimously accepted the plan. The M. S. A. 
broke all precedent by administrating this 
disciplinary case, and having its decision and 
recommendations accepted in full by the Ad- 
ministration. This undoubtedly signifies the 
importance this newly-formed organization 
has on the campus. It is evident that the 
interests and welfare of the male students in 
disciplinary matters of this type will be given 
careful consideration by the M. S. A. 

The Assembly conducted a semi-formal 
dance and dormitory open-house in April. 
The dance, featuring a prominent orchestra 
and to which faculty and administration 
members were cordially invited, was sched- 
uled for Saturday night, April 10, with the 
open-house following it the next day. The 
open-house is another first for the M. S. A. 
Never before have the men's dormitories 
been open for inspection by the Bucknell 
coeds. The members of the Men's Council 
and the House of Representatives acted as 
official hosts, while the officers of the W. S. 
G. A. served refreshincnts in Roberts Hall. 
Through both the dance and the open-house, 
the M. S. A. is striving for the recognition 
which it so rightly deserves as it empliasizes 
a greater all-college participation in social 
events, and strives for a unity of effort and 
spirit among the male student body, and a 
mutual understanding among all students, 
faculty, and administration.

May Day Program 

"The Greatest Show On Earth" was pre- 
sented May 8 in Davis Gym as the annual 
May Day program. Afembers of Orchesis, 
modern dance club, and the apprentice mod- 
ern dance organization combined their talents 
to make the 1954 event one of the most 
unique and unusual programs of this kind. 

The big moment of tliis entertaining and 
exciting day was the crowning of Dottie Di- 
Orio, as May Queen by last year's queen, 
Sally Spencer. Members of the queen's court, 
elected on the basis of service, personality, 
and leadership were ; Jo Anthony, Judy Es- 
may, Nancy Green, Fran Harvey, Slurley 
Hess, Jackie Jolly, Jackie Long, Dottie 
Masemer, Pat McColl, Jay Nides, Diane Sli- 
fer, Alice Rhoads. 

In keeping with the circus custom, a grand 
parade of the entire cast preceded the main 
show. Here were seen the acrobats, animals, 
sideshow girls, and clowns, all dressed in 
appropriate costumes. 

Following the parade was the big show in 
which the acrobats exhibited their agility and 
skill. Then came the animal trainer cracking 
her whip at the "ferocious" animals — a lion, 
tiger, and monkeys ; in another circus ring- 
was a snake charmer who mystified everyone 
with her magic powers over a "terrible" 

Between acts, the Women's Glee Club pre- 
sented a short concert. In the second half of 
the program, four clowns danced after which 
a juggler and six midgets became the center 
of attraction. The sideshow entertainers 
were as popular as ever, particularly with 
the men ! After the hilarious "Punch and 
Judy" show, an original May Pole Dance 
was performed by the clowns. 

In charge of the music for the program 
were Miss Helen E. Kleinfelter, director of 
the Women's Glee Club, and Allen W. Flock, 
director of the band. Nancy Barnes was 
student dance manager and Pat Groff was in 
cliarge of costumes. WAA conducted the

Football — 1953 

After an impressive 35-18 victory over 
Buffalo University in the season's opener, the 
Herd lost the key to success and could not 
open the gates of victory during its next 
eight games. Two of the eight losses, how- 
ever, were by two touchdowns, another two 
games were lost by one touchdown and a fifth 
contest was dropped by the slim margin of 
one point. The graduation of Brad Myers 
and Burt Talmage, the "touchdown twins" 
on the 1951 and '52 teams, coupled with the 
scholastic ineligibility of Ed Adams, Bill 
Cody and Tom O'Brien, three backs Coach 
Lawrence had counted upon to replace the 
Myers-Talmage punch, proved to be the 
straw that broke the Bison's back. 

Lawrence, in looking for backfield strength, 
shifted his aggressive right guard, Jolm 
Chironna to halfback. Chironna averaged 
3.4 yards per try and scored two touchdowns 
in four games, but his absence from the front 
wall was soon felt and he was shifted back 
to his guard slot. Ron Hendricks, C|uarter- 
back, heaved 62 passes and completed 20 for 
a 12.8 yard average per completion. Center 
Paul Ganz received recognition from the 
Eastern Intercollegiate Football Association 
as one of the "unsung heroes" on the 1953 

Football — 1954 

Five letterwinning backs will return to the 
Bucknell gridiron this season. Heading the 
list is Bob Ford '56, Collingswood, N. J., 
who barrelled his way for 360 yards last 
year for a five yard average per try. Bob 
Sierer '56, Wiconisco, was right behind Ford 
with a 4.5 average per try. Hendricks '56. 
Perkasie, and Bill Hollister '56, Short Hills, 
N. J., both of whom snapped tLe ball in the 
backfield last season, will be returning to 
resume their signal calling duties. 

Chironna '55, Westfield, N. J., a guard, 
will head the list of ten letterwinning line- 
men. Ends Jack Flurer '55, Columbus, N. J., 
Bob Antkowiak '55, Baltimore, Md., Rich 
Klaber '55, Mt. Lebanon, and Ken Tashjy 
'55, Palisades Park, N. J., should cement the 
terminals of the line. Center Roy Gavert 
'55, Wilkinsburg, guards Hank Popek '55, 
Philadelphia, and Jack Winebrenner '55, 
Baltimore, Md., and tackles Ron Lloyd '55, 
Forty Fort, and Marion Minker '56, Towson, 
Md., should strengthen the middle of the 
front wall. 

Sophomore Don Koppes '57, Basking 
Ridge, N. J., looks like a hard-charging, high- 
stepping halfback who may strengthen the 
"weak link backfield." George Klauder '55, 
Pliiladelphia, who averaged 4.7 yards per try 
last season, should provide depth at the full- 
back position. Gregory Blyler '57, Leonia, 
N. J., a sophomore tackle who tips the scales 
at 260, should provide the line with beef as 
well as strength and speed and Henry Owen 


'56, Lewisburg, looks like he is slated to see 
plenty of action backing up the line. 

Coach Lawrence feels that if he doesn't 
lose too many men through injuries, there 
will definitely be some improvement over last 
season's record. Lawrence also feels tliat 
last year's freshman squad was not too strong 
but should add some depth to the 1954 varsity 

Co-ed Sports Siininiary 

Girls' sports on the Bucknell campus this 
year were many and varied, offering oppor- 
tunities for girls interested in almost every 
type of athletic activity. The success of the 
athletic program was due to the competent 
job done by the Women's Athletic Associa- 
tion. This year WAA was under the capa- 
ble leadership of Janet Wilt '55, Drexel Hill. 
Assisting her were vice president, Virginia 
Wightman '55, Glen Rock. N. J. ; secretary, 
Anne Tuckerman '54, Media and treasurer, 
Jean Uhler '56, York. 

Hockey practice began almost immediately 
after the girls returned to campus. In the 
first play day at Juniata the Bucknell team 
won two games, lost one, and tied one. On 
October 13, the All College Tournament was 
held at Lebanon Valley. From Bucknell 
Barbara Glenn (captain) '56, Greenville. S. 
C, Carol Getz '56, Glen Mills, Jo Lower '57, 
Westtown, and Barbara Folk '57, Merion, 
were selected to play on the first team, and 
Fran Derby '54, Baltimore, Md., Martha 
Green '57. Drexel Hill, and Connie Hamil- 
ton '57, Downingtown, were chosen to play 
on the second team. 

Diane Slifer '54, Woodbury, N. J., pulled 
through to win the tennis championship, 
while Sally Roop '57, Baltimore, Md.. came 
out on top to take the badminton singles. 

Interclass volleyball competition began in 
November with the Sophomores winning on 
an undefeated record, followed by intergroup 
contests. Delta Delta Delta tied the Inde- 
pendents for first place but were defeated in' 
the finals by the non-sorority team. 

After an exciting tournament the Sopho- 
mores won the interclass basketball cham- 
pionship with only one defeat. Intergroup 
basketball was won by the Alpha Chi 
Omega's after defeating the Kappa Delta's in 
the finals. In bowling the Independent team 
was the winner of the intergroup tournament. 
Fourteen girls also participated in the Na- 
tional Intercollegiate Bowling Tournament 
held at Penn State. 

In competition with other colleges the 
Bucknell girls did very well this year. At 
Susquehanna on February 13 the basketball 
team won their first game with Susquehanna 
and went on to beat Lock Haven, who had 
until this time been undefeated at any of the 
previous play days. On February 27, at the 
Lycoming play day Bucknell took first place 
in both swimming and basketball and placed 

third in badminton and bowling. At the play 
day at State College the swimming team won 
the swimming meet and Sally Roop '57, Bal- 
timore, Md.. came out first in the singles bad- 
minton tournament. The basketball team won 
one game and lost one. 

In the midst of the many athletic activities, 
Orchesis, the modern dance club, was kept 
busy. At Christmas they performed for the 
Linntown Parent-Teachers' Association and 
gave a concert with the Women's Glee Club. 
This year the entire May Day program was 
put on by the modern dance group. 

Spring Sports 

Baseball, track, tennis and golf occupied 
the athletic spotlight during spring on the 
300 acres. Coach Bill Lane's baseball team, 
led by the sensational pitching of Don Rich- 
ards, won its opener from Susquehanna 5-4. 
A week later, the Bison nine tied Navy 1-1. 
Tom King hurled Bucknell to an 8-5 triumph 
over Scranton in the next game. Franklin 
and Marshall finally turned the tide and upset 
the Orange and Blue hurlers 7-6 shortly be- 
fore Spring Recess ; however, Bucknell 
bounced back after the recess and outclassed 
Susquehanna for the second time. On this 
occasion, Richards blanked the Crusaders 
3-0 on three hits. Juniata turned the tables 
on the Bisons two days later, squeaking by 
with a 6-5 decision ; however. Coach Lane's 
n'ne bounced back once more and shellacked 
Albright 12-1. 

Coach Bus Blum's mile-relay team opened 
the 1954 track season in the annual Penn Re- 
lays, but placed "out of the money." The 
team, as a whole, did not see action until 
May 1 when it thumped Muhlenberg 84-42. 
Harold Smith, Frank Vanderhoof, Red 
Macauley and Ed Burg led the Bison scoring- 

On the clay courts. Coach Hank Peters' 
tennis team chalked up three victories against 
a single defeat in the early part of the sea- 
son. Navy set the racquetmen back on their 
heels 9-0 in the season's opener, but since 
that time the tennismen have beaten Temple 
7-2, Albright 8-1 and Muhlenberg 8-1. Al 
Holton, Joe Battin, Spencer Lenhart, Dick 
Wormser, and Rich Richter paced the team 
during its siege. 

Coach Hal Evans' golf team got ofl: to a 
slow start as it lost three matches in a row. 
Then the linksmen won two consecutive 
matches, beating Temple and Albright. Jeff 
Mynott, Nelson Korb, Andy Harvat and Pete 
Straub have been the leading divotmen.

After teaching 12 years at Purdue 
University, Charles C. Wagner has 
taken a position in an industrial labora- 
tory in Hammond, Ind. We're glad to 
get this news about Wag. He has three 
sons and one daughter, one son just 
back from Army service. He has out- 
done some of us with four grandchil- 
dren. (Why don't some of you other 
guys report on the third generation?) 

Again the grim reaper. J. Harry 
Schuch died suddenly on February 18th. 
He had worked the day before but be- 
came violently ill on the 18th and died 
almost immcdialcl.y. 

McMiibers of the class will rciiieinbcr 
Harry as one of the most choerl'ul of 
our mates. He was one of Bill Raker's 
"Lycoming County Gang", his home 
having been at Cogan Station. After 
taking his degree with us in civil en- 
gineering, he was for two years with 
the Bessemer and Lake Erie R. R. at 


Greenville; thence he moved to Lin- 
coln, Neb., with the C. B. and Q. After 
two years there he went to Montana, 
where for years he was with the Butte, 
Anaconda, and Pacific. In 1933 he went 
for a short term to the FERA, the U. S. 
Forest Service and U. S. Public Works 
Administration, as resident engineer at 
Helena. In June 1940 he joined the 
Anaconda Copper Mining Co. doing 
civil engineering and maintenance 

In 1915 he married Nellie G. Daniels. 
They have two daughters, Kathryn and 
Marilyn, and at last reports from Harry 
these daughters were still in Helena. 

Always loyal to the class, Harry was 
unable to get back for a reunion before 
that of 1947, where he was warmly 
welcomed. In his later years he was 
an elder of the Presbyterian Church, 
a very devout Christian. His going 
leaves another large gap in our thin- 
ning ranks. He had hoped to be back 
for our fiftieth reunion; he will be with 
us in spirit.

Some people call April a wild wanton maid 
And think of the winter as adult and staid. 

But I think of Winter as no such meek thing, 
For she is as freakish and moody as spring. 

A lacy white mantle she'll wear in the blue 

Of a sparkling cold day and go flirting with you. 

Or may choose tiaras of diamonds to wear, 
Charmiiigly balanced on dirty black hair. 

She'll weep for a week with her icy cold tears. 
Or blow with a breath that can shave off your ears 

A shower of snowflakes she'll fling in your face 
Her jealous flnale as spring takes her place. 

— Mabel Doyle. 

Isn't the countryside beautiful dur- 
ing April? The forsythia, magnolia, 
dog- wood, japonica; then the lovely 
narcissi, jonquils, baby irises, and tu- 
lips. My, I wish I hadn't a care in 
the world but travel around at this time 
of the year!

Haggerty '09 who were vacationing in 
St. Petersburg, Fla., for a couple of

town. Roy and I thought of you. The 
town might be improved by your pres- 
ence; otherwise it is no metropolis." 
Roy and Frank, about that time I was 
seeing red. I thought the bums en- 
joying themselves, then stopping in 
Muncy and not even coming around to 
say "hello." When I turned the card

Conner of Central College, Pella, Iowa, 
who married the former Carol Norton, 
Beatrice, Nev., became the father of a 
daughter on December 5. That same 
month on Christmas Day, to be exact, 
the Conners daughter, Phyllis, now 
Mrs. Charles McKnight, Bloomfield, N. 
J., gave birth to a daughter. And here's 
a footnote. Doris and Phyllis are twin 
sisters, and Kathleen is the twin sis- 
ter of Capt. Kenneth Conner now sta- 
tioned at New Castle Air Base after 
having served recently with the Far 
Eastern Air Force. The five Conner 
children mentioned together with their 
sister, Anita Derry of West Orange, 
N. J. are all six graduates of Lower 
Merlon High School. 

I don't have that kind of a record but 
I can announce a precious granddaugh-

Now I can have two charms for a

It is with regret, but nevertheless 
with deep pride, that we record the 
death of Paul Althouse, a native of 
Reading, who scaled the heights of his 
profession as an opera singer, became a 
leading tenor in the Metropolitan Op- 
era Co., won acclaim in other lands, but 
never became too big to remember the 
friends of his youth and enjoy others 
companionship on those occasions when 
time permitted him to visit his home 

Everyone recognized the talent and 
artistry of Paul Althouse. But those 
who were his intimates never ceased 
to love him as a human being who, al- 
though great in the eyes of the musical 
world, never lost the common touch 
nor valued fame above friendship. Long 
after his magnificent voice won him 
world acclaim, Paul Althouse continued 
to seek the society of less talented asso- 
ciates with whom he had been reared. 
Neither the plaudits of the crowd nor 
the endorsement of critics seemed to 
give him the full satisfaction that he 
enjoyed by visiting and cooperating 
with the "boys" who played less glam- 
orous roles in private life. 

Genial, friendly, democratic Paul 
was. Permitted only 64 years of life, 
he will continue to live as a pleasant 
and tender memory in the minds of 
those of us who watched and rejoiced 
in his mounting achievements and in 
the recorded annals of the musical 

It would be impossible to complete 
even a brief tribute to Paul Althouse 
without mentioning the name of Miss 
Evelyn Essick, another outstanding na- 
tive of Reading, who, as a young teach- 
er of music, "discovered" Paul as a boy 
and more than any other individual 
guarded and developed his voice and 
launched him on the road that led to 
success. Miss Essick survives her fa- 
mous protege and it is gratifying to be 
able to thank her for the great gift 
she made to Reading and the world. 

I think I knew Paul quite well even 
though he was only with us for the fall 
term of our freshman year. He called 
on me at my home in Montoursville. He 
was my escort at our freshman banquet 
at the Hotel Graeman in Shamokin. 
I remember the banquet was Monday 
evening. I suppose school was officially 
opened that day because "Ma" Bush 
was our chaperon. Helen Levegood 
Clarke, Ruby Stuck O'Leary, Violet 
Wetterau Nauman, Alberta Bronson 
Conner, Ada Brooks Nancarrow and I 
danced with the boys. I danced with 
Paul. It, of course, was against the 
rules of the University to dance with 
men during school hours so "Ma" Bush 
reported us and we were put on cam- 
pus for six weeks. When I think of it 
I don't see how the "old lady" rests 
in her grave. We weren't allowed to 
cut a class, go down to Mrs. Huths, play 
sick by crawling into bed and having 
the maid bring us toast and tea, had 
to be on time for every meal. I wasn't 
even allowed to go home over the week 
U) get some fresh air and I only lived 
30 miles from the school. I wonder 
what this generation would do if they 
had such rules? 

Thi.s wa.s quite a sensible thought that 
I copied from the church bulletin this Sunday: 

'■E»<tCT l> .-jvcf. but your love tor Chrlxt iihould 
compel jrou to oiifnd church rach Bunduy In the

the year. We are to go into all the world and 
preach the gospel. Are you doing that?" 

May 9th — Most of the good things in 
this life come to us in two's and three's, 
dozens and hundreds — plenty of roses, 
stars, sunsets, rainbows, brothers, sis- 
ters, aunts, uncles, friends, and good 
neighbors — but why only one mother 
in all this wide world. Two legs of our 
journey are over — only three more 
rounds until our 45th. Do you think 
you will make it?

Early in March Jane Irey Rees tele- 
phoned to me from her home in Dan- 
ville saying that she was moving to 
Miami, Florida, to establish permanent 
residence. Her address is 1510 S. W.

2-4736. She invited classmates and col- 
lege friends to call if they happen to be 
in her southern city. Jane has one son 
living in Ajo, Arizona. It was a real joy 
to have these few moments of conver- 
sation with her, but I was sorry to 
know that she will be far from Lewis-

Evergreen Farm, Allenwood, Pa. 

With news of classmates so scarce 
I decided I'd break down and issue a 
few statements about myself rather 
than have the year's final ALUMNUS 
go to press with no mention of '23. 


The Frontz Boys — LeRoy. Jr.; Edward; Richard 

First, I have three sons, LeRoy, Jr., a 
freshman at Antioch this year; Edward 
hopes to be in at Bucknell come this 
fall and Richard is a junior at Watson- 
town High School. 

As for myself, I have been enjoying 
a revival of some musical activity do- 
ing some accompanying for a choral 


group and having some private piano 

After years of service with state and 
federal governments in Pennsylvania 
and states of the Middle West, my hus- 
band, a forester by profession, is deep- 
ly interested in operating a small farm 
and nursery on the principles of organ- 
iculture here in Pennsylvania's beauti- 
ful White Deer Valley. Our praises of 
rural living are long and loud. One of 
my hobbies and greatest pleasures is 
birding — and I need not leave the farm 
to pursue it. With a creek on one side, 
mountains on the other, and lots of 
trees all around it is a "natural" for 
birds. Incidentally, I go to meetings 
of the Bucknell Ornithological Society. 
Our dear Dr. Stewart is always there 
too (and don't think of him as "old" 
either, for he definitely is not). He is 
the life of the meetings. 

Putting the preceding down on paper 
seemed to have the salutary effect of 
bringing a nice note from Larry Kim- 
ball, Vineland, N. J. Larry has been 
re-elected as director of the Middle At- 
lantic Lumbermen's Association. He 
says that Bob Bogar '31 of Steelton is 
also on the board. Larry reminds us 
that he missed the reunion last year 
only because he went to Paris to the 
Rotary Convention. He hopes to get 
back to the campus for Alumni Day 
this year.

Have you all sent in your Alumni 
Fund gifts? Less than a month remains 
in this fund year and every little bit 
counts. Gene Carstater, our class fund 
manager, reminds us that at one time 
or another during the life of the fund 
seventy different members of our class 
or 28% of the survivors have made one 
or more gifts to the fund. Your con- 
tribution should be sent directly to the 
Alumni Fund. Gene is head of the 
training research branch of the per- 
sonnel analysis division. Bureau of Na- 
val Personnel. Since graduation he 
has earned his Ph.D. in education. 

Of the 248 members of the Class of 
1926 still on the rolls, 20 had contrib- 
uted to the Alumni Frmd by March 15 
for the 1953-1954 Fund year. Fifty 
additional members of the class have 
made contributions in one or more of 
the previous Fund years. If all these 
remember to send in their contribu- 
tions before June 30, the class will 
reach a participation record of 28.2%. 

The class is scattered among 23 states, 
one territory, the District of Columbia, 
and Italy. 'The percentage of participa- 
tion by states varies all the way from 
to 100, but only three of the states 
have enough '26ers to make the per- 
centage significant. Since the estab- 
lishment of the Fund, 37 of the 119 
members living in Pennsylvania, or 
31%, have contributed; 11 of the 31 
living in New York, or 35%, and 12 of 
the 41 living in New Jersey, or 29%, 
have given one or more times. Of the 
remaining 57 members scattered over 
the rest of the U. S. A. — and foreign 
parts — only 10, or 18%, have felt the 
tug of fond memories strongly enough 
to send in their checks. 

The significant fact is that 28% of 
our class have given at some time dur- 
ing the first five years of the Fund pro- 

I'm always waiting to hear from all 
of you, so that we may have some thing 
for the '26 column in each issue of the 
ALUMNUS. Even if I don't get a letter 
off to you write to me about any 
changes in address, occupation or work 
you are doing. It won't be long now

Thought for June: How many com-

Writes Mrs. M. Howard Clark (Ellen 
M. Evans), "Being corporation gypsies 
we've wrought havoc on our friends' 
address books. We've moved eleven 
times and have lived in nine different 
cities. We've enjoyed living as far 
South as Atlanta, West to Kansas City, 
North to Providence, R. I., and we're 
now 'perched' in Drexel Hill. Current-

confined to Red Cross work, being on 
the board of directors of the 69th Street 
branch and public relations chairman 
for the branch, also coordinator of pub- 
licity for six branches. Our hobbies 
are various and sundry. At the present

Note: So glad, Ellen, that you like 
antiquing too! A retired teacher of 
mathematics. Miss Ranson, at B. S. 'T. C. 
and I drove to Lewistown last Saturday 
where I found an old Paul Revere lan- 
tern (minus one hinge) for 200 pennies. 
It's the old punched tin type with a 
holder for a candle. After painting it 
inside and out with black, outside 
enamel, and having it wired, I called 
the electrician to hang it on a 30-inch 
black chain from the ceiling of our 
porch. With my dark green old-fash- 
ioned settee, and a batter jug with a 
wide spout (froin which I plan to have 
ivy growing) I stood there admiring the 
lantern, quite entranced, when my hus- 
band remarked ruefully, "Now what 
are you going to do for light?" I'm all 
for the artistic atmosphere minus light. 
Those old black irons that once handled 
ladies ruffles so capably, make potent 
door stops, and a pair of them make de- 
lightful book-ends. Who would imag- 
ine that such utilitarian things would 
become so literary? Happy antiquing!

her name sake, age 7, and Johnny, age 
5. She received her mastei-'s degree 
in social work in June, 1950 at the 
University of Pittsburgh. Since then 


she has been working as a psychiatric 
social supervisor and an associate di- 
rector in the Children's Mental Health 
Center in Columbus. She thinks her 
work is wonderful and loves it. In 
March she went to the American Ortho-

twenty years. It's unbelievable. Has 
it been that many years? Her address

foundation and with all age groups from 
nursey and kindergarten through adults 
(including oldsters and shut-ins). The

JUNK 1954 



With the production of liis first show, "The 
Circle Closes," produced on Tlic U'cb over 
CBS television, Februarj' 28, Sigmund A. 
Stoler '37. added television drama as the 
fifth medium in which he works. Mr. Stoler 
is a writer. 

The Web. an outstanding mystery-drama 
series, served not onlv to introduce him to 

T\' script writing, but also presented liim as 
a m\-stery writer. He allows he likes the 
genre, and more are to come. 

Born and raised in Sunbury, he began his 
writing career, after college graduation 
(B..\. in English and education) with the 
old Sunbury Daily as a reporter. Matter of 
fact, he still substitutes for an occasional day 
or so for the paper, now the Sunbury Daily 
Item, to keep his hand in on factual writing. 

After working as a visitor for the Depart- 
ment of Public Assistance for three years, 
then teaching English at Freeburg High 
School for two, he decided writing was the 
profession he wanted. Early in 1944, he 
sold two stories to love-pulp magazines, and 
was encouraged enough by their sale to quit 
teaching that June and concentrate on writ- 

A contract with ABC writing "Appoint- 
ment With Life," a complete (daily) half- 
hour dramatic show, broadcast over WJZ 
and affiliated stations, followed that fall. 
While working for ABC, he also free-lanced 
such radio shows as "Grand Central Station," 
and "Stars Over Hollywood." 

When "Appointment With Life" went off 
the air in 1946, he began writing confessional 
stories for such magazines as True Story, 
True Confessions and four other books in the 
same field. He has the distinction of having 
two of his stories, which originally appeared 
in True Story selected for an anthology, pub- 

lished by Doubleday, of the best fourteen 
stories that had been published in True Story 
in the past thirty years. The Anthology was 
titled Tlic Boot: of True Stories, published 
in 1948. 

He has also written one-act plays, many 
of which have been published in a series of 
one-act play anthologies released by Green- 
berg : Publisher, New York. However, he 
claims he likes writing for TV best of all. 

"It's a stimulating- medium, combining fea- 
tures of both stage and movie technique." He 
feels his work in community theatre as a di- 
rector is serving him in good stead now for 
arranging stage "business" and direction for 
liis television dramas, although mysteries — 
featured on The Web — are a new type of 
story for him. 

Mr. Stoler still talks about writing a novel ; 
says he has started two but both times didn't 
feel they excited him — or would, any one else. 
He would like to have a play on Broadway 
some day. In the meantime, he admits seeing 
his work produced on TV is the biggest 
careerwise thrill he's had. 

He comes from a Bucknell family. His 
sister, Mrs. Harry Bernstein, of Scotch 
Plains, New Jersey, the former Evelyn Del 
Stoler, was granted her bachelor of arts de- 
gree in 1931. His brother, Harold L., of 
Sunbury, was in the Class of 1936.

JUNE 1954 

Founders' Day on the Campus 

(Ed. Note) One of the features of Found- 
ers' Day zvas the Student Chapel Serz'ice on 
Wednesday, February 10, addressed by Dr. 
Harold R. Husted. minister. First-Park Bap- 
tist Church. Plainfield, K'. J. Dr. Husted. al- 
though not a BuekneUian, has four BuckneU 
sons and tzco BuckneU daughters-in-Iazc. 
They are H. Ha'-lan Husted '43. married to 
the former Barbara G. Russell '44: William 
DeHart Husted '4S. married to the former 
Dorothy il. Jennings: Robert Redding Hus- 
ted '53. married to the former Patricia 
Foulkes '53: and Richard H. Husted '53. 
Follozi'ing is an e.rccrpt from Dr. Husfed's 
Chapel address dealing ivith the early history 
and the John Hon'ord Harris era of Buck- 
neU that zi-il! undoubtedly be of interest to 
scz'eral generations of BuckneU Alumni. 

It was verj' gracious to invite one who is 
not a graduate of this University to partici- 
pate in this 'Founders' Day' program. I as- 
sure you that I consider this privilege an 
honor. My only claim to recognition on this 
campus is the fact that I am the father of 
four sons who are graduates of BuckneU. It 
is true that about 25 years of my ministry 
have been spent within a radius of 150 miles 
of this school and I have had some small 
part in influencing a score of young people 
to attend BuckneU. 

The occasion for which we are gathered is 
'Founders' Day.' It is our privilege to look 
back upon the past ; to the beginnings of this 
University, before we look around us at the 
present and ahead of us to the future. "God 
builds the Future on the Present and the 
Present on the Past." No individual is an 
adult until he appreciates the contribution of 
the past. We cannot change our past, but we 
can choose our attitude toward it. We can be 
unmindful of it and irreverent toward it, or 
thoughtful of it and grateful for it. 

The "University at Lewisburg " was found- 
ed in 1846, upon the completion of an effort 
to raise SIOO.OOO to meet the requirements for 
a charter. Without the substantial support of 
a number of Baptist laymen in Philadelphia, 
the effort would have farled. In 1886 the 
present name was adopted in honor of Wil- 
liam BuckneU of Philadelphia, who was a 
generous contributor to this University. 

John Howard Harris registered as a fresh- 
man in the University at Lewisburg in 1865. 
He was then 18 years of age. The only build- 
ings on "The Hill" were Old Main, the Acad- 
■ my and the Seminary. Harris completed his 

'>l)cgc course in three years. So great was 
the impression that the young man made 
upon the faculty and President Looniis, that 
he was selected as the one best fitted to be 
the first president of a new secondary school 
to \k known as "Keystone Academy" in Fac- 
loryvillc. Fa. The school opened with 16 

ludcnts and no buildings. The classes were 
held in the First Baptist Church. 

Young Harris remained at Keystone Acafl- 
ctny 2fJ years. When he finished his work in 
1889, there were three buildings on tin- lain- 
pu.t and an enrollment of 225. 

In 1Wi9, Dr. John Howard Harris became 
president of this schwil which three years be- 
fore had become Buckncll University. The 
J U .V K 1 3 i 

total enrollment was 71 and there were S 
members on the faculty. There were few 
buildings, little equipment and less money. 
President Harris gathered around himself a 
faculty unusual for Bucknell's size. He pre- 
ferred to take BuckneU students, whom he 
had met daily in his classes and whose char- 
acter he knew well, and encourage them to 
take graduate work while serving as in- 
structors in the school. In this way, he se- 
cured men of strength, character and broad 
scholarship. Dr. Harris' appreciation of the 
value of a faculty may be gained from a 
statement in an address that he delivered be- 
fore the Annual Convention of the Associa- 
tion of Colleges in 1906 : 

"I believe there are no men in any vocation 
superior to the college professor in manly 
character, in devotion to truth, in love of 
their work, or in the value of their services to 
mankind. The office has always enlisted the 
brightest reflective intellects of the race. 
Though poor, they make many rich ; not only 
in things of the spirit, but in things of matter 
as well. These men make the moral atmos- 
phere of the college ; association with them 
is a liberal education." 

The high scholastic standing this Univer- 
sity achieved under his leadership may be 
judged by the recognition President Harris 
received from his fellow college presidents, 
who elected him to the important office of 
Chairman of the "Colleges and Universities 
Council of Pennsylvania." It is recorded that 
President Harris exerted more influence upon 
college education in Pennsylvania than any 
other man of his day. 

In 1919, President Harris resigned the 
presidency of BuckneU. During the entire 30 
years, he had served as Professor of Psy- 
chology and Ethics. He now became Pro- 
fessor of Philosophy, which chair he occu- 
pied for five years. 

In 1924, Dr. Harris severed his active con- 
nection with this University. He moved to 
Scranton, Pa., to live with one of his eight 
sons, seven of whom were graduates of tliis 
University. His one daughter is also a grad- 
uate of BuckneU. Three months after Dr. 
Harris moved to Scranton, I began my min- 
istry in the Immanuel Baptist Church. This 
was my first pastorate. The 'reported' mem- 
bership of Immanuel at that time was 1,200, 
and the Sanctuary seated 1,100. These facts 
did not intimidate the young minister nearly 
.so much as the presence of John Howard 
Harris in his congregation each Sunday 
morning. This great scholar, theologian and 
administrator was truly a humble man and a 
devout Christian. He was very helpful to 
the young mini.ster. On one of my frequent 
calls into his home, I asked him, "Dr. Harris, 
what can you get from anything I may say in 
a sermon?" The great man replied, "My 
young man, you always .say .something thai 
starts my mind going." He was too gracious 
to complete the sentence, "and then I go off 
and leave you." 

On Saturday morning, April 21, 1925, after 
President Harris had lived in Scranton less 
than a year, he died. I had fully expected 
that Mrs. Harris would invite a number of 
dignitaries to conduct the service. I-ike her 
husband, Mrs. Harris was very gracious and 
humble. J can well remember her statement : 
"You were his pastor and you will conduct 

the service." Later, the body was brought to 
Lewisburg where a memorial service was 
held and the remains of this great man are 
buried in Lewisburg Cemetery. 

Such, in brief, is the story of one man who 
lived 78 years in Pennsylvania — born in this 
state, educated in this state, spent his entire 
ministry in this state, and is buried in this 
state; 50 years as an administrator; fifty-five 
years as a professor. Fifty-five years of un- 
selfish self-sacrificial service to the Kingdom 
of God in these two Baptist schools. 

It is inspiring to read the Baccalaureate 
Sermons delivered by this great scholar who 
had a profound faith in God and the ultimate 
victory of truth and righteousness. That he 
was not swayed off his feet during the years 
of the First World War is indicated by the 
themes of the addresses that he delivered be- 
fore the graduating classes during the war 
years ; 

1916 — "The Spiritual Building" 
1917 — "The Unsliaken Kingdom" 
1918— "The Persistence of God" 

Permit me to quote the last paragraph of 
his 1918 Baccalaureate Sermon: "Half of 
your number are absent today, in various 
kinds of war work — many more will un- 
doubtedly engage in it. As in the old days 
the challenge went forth "Whom shall I 
send? Who will go?" And the answer 
came, "Here am I, Oh Lord, send me." So 
in our day, the same challenge has gone forth 
and the hearts of millions of youth answer, 
"Here are we. Send us." The man and the 
hour have met, and best of all, God is with 
us. The triumph of right is as sure as the 
act of gravitation. Let us be sure that we 
are on the side of God and we need not ^ear 
the outcome." 

This gathering will little note nor long re- 
member what we say here, but BuckneU Uni- 
versity should never forget what Dr. Harris

Buck-Raising, "Joe Doe" Style, 
Or How Loyal Can One Get? 

Back in June of 1952, "Joe Doe" '08 received a letter from Bucknell asking him to 
suggest the names of persons whom the University might solicit in behalf of the Taylor 
Hall program. 

He replied by giving his own name and address and saying "and I will see that the 
guy comes across with $218 by December 31, 1953." 

Well, December came and went without any word from Brother "Joe", so a few 
weeks ago the University sent him a reminder. 

By return mail came a check and a terse note : 

"I nailed the guy and made him come across for the full amount with interest com- 
pounded since June, 1952. Check ($242.06) enclosed. He wanted to deduct contributions 
in December '52 and '53, but I would hear nothing of it." 

The Outlook in Admissions. 

By George R. Faint '25, Registrar 
This year more applications than last year 
have been received from both men and wo- 
men. Because fewer women can be accom- 
modated this year, the competition is excep- 
tionally keen. 

Effective with applicants for September 
1955, the major selection of candidates, both 
men and women, will not be made until the 
results of the full March series of College 
Entrance Examination Board tests have been 
received ; that is in April, but before May 1. 
This will enable us to receive applications, 
particularly from women, for a longer pe- 
riod, and "to have the 3^-year secondary 
school record available when the selection of 
candidates is made. 


Bucknell has very limited scholarship 
funds, and hence candidates needing aid must 
show great financial need, rank very high in 
the graduating class, and be exceptional on 
the College Board tests. 


The endorsement of candidates by alumni 
is always helpful to the Admissions Commit- 
tee. Alumni are cautioned only to recommend 
Bucknell, and not to assure candidates of 
acceptance. Often personable candidates may 
be low ranking scholastically. Sometimes a 
particular degree program may be popular, 
creating additional competition for the few 
who can be accepted in that program. 

How Large Should Bucknell Be? 

In our March 1954 issue (page 22) some interesting figures concerning future college 
enrollments were given. Another recent study that predicts high school age population to 
1966 has been prepared by Ronald B. Thompson, Ohio State University. The results as 
reported in the Phi Delta Kappan in March 1954 are reproduced here for a study of things 
to come. 

The importance of the figures may be indicated by the following: Whereas high 
school facilities for the past decade have had to take into account only the increasing per- 
centage of high school-age children enrolling in secondary schools, the next, decade will have 
to contend with an additional factor. Not only can the percentage of those enrolling in 
secondary schools be expected to increase, but there will be. no doubt, a tremendous increase 
in the actual number of young people of high school age. 

The Thompson analysis is based upon births as reported each year since 1922, to which 
basic figure has been applied known percentages of survival to, and through the normal high 
school ages.

An "American In Paris" theme supplied 
the background for the annual Senior Prom 
on March 19. 

Davis Gymnasium was bedecked with Paris 
scenes and French cafes while Duke Elling- 
ton and his orchestra supplied a variety of 
unique arrangements for the large crowd of 
Bucknellians and their guests. 

At the height of the evening. Prom Queen 
Dorothy Masemer, York, was presented with 
her court of six seniors. Dottie DiOrio,

II Corinthian 9:7 


The passing of two prominent Bucknellians in February and March and the 
subsequent probating of their wills has brought to light once again the esteem 
in which Bucknell Alumni hold their Alma Mater. 

On February 7 the University received with regret the news that Paul Althouse, 
a member of the Class of 1912, had died at New York City. Subsequently, the 
University received a copy of his will which read in part: 

"I give and bequeath to Bucknell University, School of Music, the sum 
of One Thousand ($1,000.00) Dollars and request that some appropriate 
memento of a permanent nature be displayed in said School of Music of 
this bequest." 

The former Metropolitan Opera Star had supported the University regularly in 
his later years and it was not surprising that he singled out the School of Music 
as a beneficiary in his will. Music was his life, but as the Editor of the Reading 
Eagle put in his editorial of February 8, he "never lost the common touch nor 
valued fame above friendship." 

It was unquestionably this trait which led Paul Althouse to think of the many 
students who would follow him through BucknelTs School of Music in the future. 


Less than a month later, March 1, the University received another blow in the 
passing of Richard Darlington, a member of the Board of Trustees and of the Class 
of 1909. Coincidentally, both of these loyal Alumni were 64 years of age. 

A native of Lewisburg, Richard Darlington became a successful coal distributor 
and for many years contributed substantially to the support of the University. In 
1948, his gifts having passed the $10,000 mark he was made a Founder of the 

WTien his will was probated early in March it was discovered that Richard Dar- 
lington's desire to help his Alma Mater was even greater than had been evidenced 
during his lifetime. He had named Bucknell as the residuary legatee of sixty per- 
cent of his estate, which was valued at .'1200,000.00. 

The will provided a life estate for Mrs. Darlington, ihc former Margaret Ker- 
stetter of Milton, which is to be dissolved at the time of her dcalh. In addition 
to Bucknell, Mr. Darlington also provided for the Bryn Mawr Hospital; employees 
of llx- fiiiiisN K aula and Hudson Coin])any, of which he was president; the Fvaii- 
gcljiai (.iMiiinuiiity llnspital of Lewisburg and the I'irsI I'lfsliylciian (Muiiili of 
Lewisburg. These four groups will share 40^ of the i-csidnary estate. 

I'iili.iid l);irliii;.'l(Mi uas iiol llic lypi' In manifest his feelings in jjublic, but 
ihcri- 'an Im- no dcnibl lii^ uill has spoken clo(|urnll\ of his lo\c for his 
Alma Malci. 


A Code for Bucknellians 

Having chosen Bucknell University as our Alma Mater, we 
v\^ho have benefitted from her academic resources, her learned teach- 
ings, her friendly counsel, her high traditions, her rich social experi- 
ences, and her beautiful campus environment do proudly assert our 
happy affiliation and our invaluable claim. This assertion is most 
appropriately made as an expression of recognition of the Bucknell 
Way of Life. 

We thankfully acknowledge that we have received more than 
that for which we paid, as the result of numerous benefactions from 
Bucknellians and friends of Bucknell who preceded us. We humbly 
realize that in being provided with the knowledge of and access to the 
tools of life, we accept willingly the moral obligation to employ those 
tools to the best of our abilities for the good of society. In so doing, 
we recognize the inconsistencies of our social and economic environ- 
ment and adjust for them in accordance with the principles of our 
Bucknell heritage. 

Faith in God, allegiance to our. country, consideration of our 
fellow man, and loyalty to Bucknell we shall constantly endeavor to 
practice and foster in our daily lives, regardless of our individual sta- 
tions. May our loyalty to Bucknell and to her Alumni, past, present, 
and future, result in compounding the interest of the Bucknell Way 
of Life. 







We are sure the freshmen men and women of the 
Bucknell Class of 195 8 who reach the campus next week 
will not lack advice on how to succeed in college. In the 
belief that those of us, who one day many years ago set foot 
on the campus for the first time as students and lived through 
four years of college, have learned something of the approach 
to college life, these few words are addressed to the entering 
Class of 1958. 

First of all, expect to be challenged at a higher level 
of achievement than you have experienced before. You 
would not be coming to college if you expected your work 
to be as easy as it was in high school. Face your enlarged 
tasks with the assurance that the entire faculty and staff 
are dedicated to help you achieve success in your work. 

Our second bit of advice was stated so well by our 
June 1954 commencement speaker, Dr. Brand Blanshard of 
Yale University that we cannot do better than quote his 
words. Dr. Blanshard, speaking on "the Concept of the 
Gentleman", declared that chivalry and honor, two price- 
less elements in our ideal of the gentleman, are deeply and 
particularly needed in our day. 

"Chivalry," he said, "has come to mean a generous fair- 
ness to others which is an essential part of honor. Honor 
implies that one has incorporated such fairness in one's self- 
respect. That is why honor is so potent a force." 

The speaker pointed out that honor does not reserve 
itself for great occasions and referred to athletics as one of 
our chief schools of honor. "The notion of sportsmanship 
or fair play," said he, "is one of our best Anglo-Saxon ex- 
ports. The ability to take hard knocks unwhiningly, to win 
without preening oneself, to admire those who can beat one 
at the game, to go all out to win but to prefer not winning 
at all to winning by cadging and goudging, is one of the 
finest traditions of American life." 

If the members of the Class of 195 8 can accept this 
concept of a gentleman throughout their four years on the 
campus a new high in class spirit and achievement will have 
been established.

completed the efforts of a trustee commit- 
tee, headed by Dr. Herbert L. Spencer, 
that has been at work for a year selecting 
a president to succeed Dr. Horace A. Hil- 
dreth who resigned in June 1953 to be-

prior to a six-weeks vacation tour in 
Europe where he made brief stops in Scot- 

land, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and 
England. The Odgers family owns a 
summer residence at Cliff Island, Maine 
where they spend most of their vacations 
when not traveling abroad. 

In announcing his decision to accept 
the post of president of Bucknell, Dr. Od- 
gers commented as follows; "I am deeply 
honored bj' the invitation to become presi- 
dent of Bucknell University in view of the 
splendid accomplishments which have 
marked this 108-year old institution in the 
past and in view of its bright prospects for 
the future." 

"Bucknell has a great tradition for 
scholarships and service," he continued, 
"and I am looking forward to becoming 
a part of this fine college, the 100th char- 
tered in America." 

Editorializing in the Snnhnry Item, the edi- 
tor wrote : 

"The selection of Dr. Odgers as presi- 
dent of Bucknell underlines the fact that 
our University has been greatly blessed in 
the caliber of the men who have directed 
its destinies through the years. Dr. Od- 
gers will face an unmistakable challenge 
in the records of men like Dr. John How- 
ard Harris, whose long tenure, deep devo- 
t i o n a nd outstanding accomplishments 
marked a milestone in the progress of the 
LTniversity, and more recent predecessors 
including Dr. Horace A. Hildreth, now 
Ambassador to Pakistan, Dr. Herbert L. 
Spencer, who left the campus to become 
director of the Kress Foundation, and Dr. 
Arnaud C. Marts, one of the nation's best 
known counselors on public finance en- 
terprises. However, ' Dr. Odgers' back- 
ground of service to education covering 
32 years as college teacher and administra- 
tor qualifies him for carrying on a great 
tradition. A year's search by Bucknell's 
Board of Trustees for a man measuring up 
to the high standards established in the 
University's presidency has not been in

General Alumni Association 

Bucknell University 

William S. Liming '33 was unanimously elected 
president of the General Alumni Association dur- 
ing Alumni W^eekend in June. Bill is with the 
group insurance division of the Metropolitan Life 
Insurance Company in New York, serving as man- 
ager of benefit plan publicity and employee educa- 
tion services. 

Prior to service as a naval officer in World 
War II, he was in the writing and editing field in 
New Jersey and New York. As an undergraduate 
Bill, who specialized in journalism, edited both the 
BucknelUan and UAgenda. In addition to mem- 
bership in Tau Kappa Epsilon social fraternity, he 
belongs also to Pi Delta Epsilon, national honorary 
journalism fraternity, and to Sigma Tau Delta, 
honorary professional English fraternity. A fre- 
quent speaker at conferences of editors he was on 
the Board of Directors of the American Associa- 
tion of Industrial Editors and now serves as vice- 
president in charge of the Association's place- 
ment service. 

Bill is married to the former Ruth E. Rohr 
'34, popular class reporter for her class. They 
have two Bucknellians-to-be children, Ruth Gail, 
aged 11, and Robert Geoffrey, aged 7%. The Lim- 
ings live at East Williston, Long Island, New York 
where both are active in many phases of alumni 
work and helped to organize the Bucknell Alumni 
Club of Long Island. 

ALUMNI WEEKEND-19S4 again at- 
tracted a record breaking of alumni to the 
campus on June 11-14. Class presidents 
and reunion chairmen of the Emeritus Club 
and the Classes of 1899, 1904, 1909, 1914, 
1919, 1924, 1929, 1934, 1939, 1944, 1949, 
1953, and 1954 planned a full program of 
activities for the reunioners. Non-reunion 
class members of all years accounted for 
about 300 of the visitors in the total crowd 
of well over a thousand Bucknellians who 
sat down at the All-Alumni Luncheon on 
Saturday noon. A campus committee of 
students, faculty, and alumni, under the 
dynamic leadership of Raymond K. Irwin 
'47, made the campus arrangements for 
over thirty meetings during the gala week- 

Of course, the highlight of any class re- 
union is the fine glow of renewing college 
friendships but this year several features 
and at least one pleasant surprise added 
new zest to the time honored activities. 


THE FEATURE of the Saturday morn- 
ing program was the impressive ceremony 
of ground-breaking for the $900,000 F. W. 
Olin Science Building. Dr. Charles S. 
Horn, president of the Olin Foundation 
returned to Bucknell to lift the first shovel- 
ful of earth from the site of the new 
building which will be located opposite the 


Engineering Building. There to assist 
him were James O. Wynn, Esq., vice 
president and general counsel for the Olin 
Foundation; Dr. Joseph W. Henderson 
'08, acting president and chairman of the 
r>oard of Trustees of Bucknell; the Hon- 
orable Horace A. Hildreth, American Am- 
liassador to Pakistan and former president

though each class is seated as a group, 
provided a hilarious occasion for all with 
each crowd of reunioners trying to fly its 
class numerals highest via the balloon 
route. After a delicious lunch served in 
fine style by Mrs. Esther B. Long '47, di- 
rector of food services, with the aid of her 
staff augmented by a number of students, 
a minimum of time was devoted to greet- 
ings and announcements. Mrs. Emily

General Alumni Association, who presided 
at the huge gathering in Davis Gym

of the Olin Foundation, and Ambassador 
Hildreth, the twenty-fifth and fiftieth re-

the proceedings when Paul E. Fink, presi- 
dent of the 25th reunion Class of 1929 and 
Robert W. Thompson, president of the 
50th reunion Class of 1904 stepped to the 
speakers' platform and presented special 
anniversary gifts to the Bucknell Alumni 
Fund on behalf of their respective classes. 


JOHN C. DECKER, ESQ. '36 was named 
for election to a five-year term as Alumni 
Trustee on the Board of Trustees of Buck-

Head Football Coach 

The 1954 season promises an interesting 
and difficult series of hurdles. Boston Uni- 
versity and Albright College will be the 
newcomers to the schedule. Of our tra- 
ditional opponents Colgate, with Ail- 
American quarterback Dick Lalla at the 
helm, once again looms as a most formid- 
able opponent. 

Lafayette, our Homecoming foe, is defi- 
nitely on the comeback trail and has a big 
experienced junior team ready to pick up 
where it left off last Fall. Temple, Dela- 
ware, Gettysburg, Lehigh and Muhlenberg 
all seem to have the necessary nucleus for 
top teams in 1954. 

As for the "Bisons," graduation and 
drop-outs has dealt lightly with us this 
year. The Herd will have more depth 
and experience than last year, and the 
squad is determined to make amends for 
its first losing season in years. John 

Chironna was unanimously elected Cap- 
tain and he promises a spirited, fighting 
ball club. 

Veteran players returning are: Jack 
Flurer, Bob Antkowiak, Dick Klaber, Ken 
Tashjy, ends; Marion Minker, Ronnie 
Lloyd, Joe Brune, tackles; John Chironna, 
Hank Popek, Art Kinney, Jack Wine- 
brenner, guards; Roy Gavert, Hank Ow- 
ens, Charlie Wolfe, centers; Bill Cody, 
Bob Sierer, Dick McCartney, Ron Hen- 
dricks, Bob Ford, George Klauder, Moe 
Finklestein, backs. 

New to the varsity will be about fifteen 
inembers of last year's frosh squad. These 
boys showed to good advantage in the 
Spring work-outs and while in general 
they are very green, several promising 
players will give the veterans a real fight 
for position; and all will help to add depth 
and spirit to the squad. 

The varsity coaching staff will be the 
same as last year, with Bill Lane coach- 
ing line and Smokey Ostendarp coaching 
backfield. Ben Kribbs will again coach 


Team followers should remember 
that the opening football game with 
Muhlenberg is scheduled for the Her- 
shey Sports Stadium at Hershey on 
Saturday evening, September 25. Those 
desiring football tickets in the Buck- 
nell section should send their orders 
with check (at $2.50 each) to Buck- 
nell University, Attention of Albert E. 
Humphreys, Director of Athletics, 
without delay. 

freshmen, but for the first time, will have 
assistance in the person of Franny Hatton, 
former Sunbury High School coach. Fran- 
ny will coach the frosh line. 

The sheer speed of Myers and Talmage 
days is not available to the 1954 squad, 
but most of the other ingredients are pres- 
ent; and the Herd is definitely in a posi- 
tion to improve on its 1953 performance. 


In accordance with the wishes of the alumni and students, we have shifted the 
students, team and band back to the West side of the stadium. 

The students and faculty have sections D, E, and F and alumni sections B and C, 
which includes seats from the 10 to 45 yard line. Alumni will have choice of above 
seats or fifty-yard line seats on the press box side of the stadium. Please indicate your 
preference on the application below. 

If you want to make certain of choice seats for the opener, Dad's Day and Home- 
coming, it is advisable to get your ticket order in early. 

A special section on the forty-five yard line will be reserved for the class (of 
fifty members or more) having the highest percentage of contributors. 

To receive above priorities, application accompanied by check or money order 
must be in Athletic Office by October 2. Please signify on application.

Dads accompanied by mothers, of course, 
will take over the Bucknell Campus on Sat- 
urday. October 9, 1954, for the celebration

Fathers' Association in the Lewisburg Club, 
131 Market St.. at 10:45 a. m.. there will be

officers for 1954-1955 will be elected. 

Following the luncheon the parents will 
attend the football game in Memorial Sta- 
diimi, where Lehigh University will be the 
opponent. An evening of entertainment is 
scheduled for Davis Gymnasium at 8 :00 p. m. 
At tliis meeting a plaque commemorating 
the parents' part in the rebuilding of Taylor 
Hall will be presented. The Bucknell Uni- 
versity Men's and Women's Glee Clubs will 
sing. Dean Malcolm Musser. chairman of 
the Board of Directors of the Fathers' Asso- 
ciation, will present plaques to former Presi- 
dents of the Association. 

Although Dad's Day is dedicated to all 
the Fathers of Bucknell students, the Moth- 
ers are cordially invited to attend. The 
Fathers' Association and the students are 
especially anxious to have the parents of this 
year's freshman class visit the Bucknell 
Campus on Dad's Day. 

If you have a son or daughter at Buck- 
nell, why not ask them to make room reser- 
vations for you in Lewisburg. You can 
secure your meals at the University's cafe- 

Bucknell University and her student body 
are looking forward to welcoming over a 
thousand parents to the Campus on October

Twenty-three members of the Emeritus 
Club ranging in classes from 1890 to 1903 
gathered under the leadership of President 
John I. Woodruff '90, with Dr. Mark C. 
Ebersole, assistant professor of religion, as 
faculty host. Mrs. Jane Fowler Bullis '03, 
who became eligible for membership just last 
year probably traveled the greatest distance 
coming from Whittier, Calif., to attend her 
first meeting as a member of the Emeritus 
Club. Jay Bond '03, also a new member of 
the Emeritus Club, attended, setting an ex- 
ample that should be followed by new elig- 

ible members— the example of becoming af- 
filiated with the Emeritus Club as soon as 
possible after the 50th reunion of the class. 
(Are you listenin', Class of 1904?) After the 
meeting the veterans led the parade to the 
All-Alumni Luncheon in the gym and later 
gathered at the Taylor St. House for their 
social gathering. 

Officers elected are president, Prof. Frank 
M. Simpson '95, Lewisburg; vice president. 
Dr. Mabel Grier Lesher '01, Lewisburg; sec- 
retary, John M. Gundy '97, Lewisburg; trea- 
surer, B. Meade Wagenseller '95, Selinsgrove. 

CLASS OF 1904 


Several firsts were established when the 
Class of 1904 gathered for its 50th reunion. 
Certainly no 50-year class ever looked as 
snappy as the 04ers looked in their kelly 
green Alpine hats bedecked with red feathers. 
Another notable first was the 50th anniver- 
sary gift to the Bucknell Alumni Fund estab- 
lished by the Class of 1904. Not all the re- 
unioners arrived in time for the picture; the 
class registration showed at least 20 class- 
mates and guests in attendance. Coxy 

CLASS OF 1909 

The 45th reunion of the Class of 19C 
the campus of Bucknell University has 
become history, but what memories for t 
of us who were there! We came from 
necticut, Florida, Kentucky, Massachu i 
Michigan, New York, and Pennsylvania. A 
swering present were: Mary Meyer Al' 
Herman Fritz, Eunice Hall Johnson, Cl.»w 
Lepperd, Dolly Leopold Lillienthal, John 
Shirley, Stanton Smith, Eugene Van Wl 
Mabel Slout Weeter, and Ida Sames Ycag 
The following were there too bringing w: 
them their better or worse halves, as thf 
may be: George Ballets, Ansley Cla; 
Grace Wolfe Crandall, Sarah Walters 1 
land, William Leiser, Albert Waffle O 
Guy Payne, Hannah Mervine Shultz, I 
tine Hyatt Villalon, Myrtle Walkinsh: 
Shupe, Norman Wilkinson and Hel 
Youngken. We were sorry to hear that Ne 
ton Fetter, New York, and Don Humm 
fornia, on their way to the reunion wer 
en ill and had to return home. We r 
them indeed and are hoping that by 
they are quite well again. 

Thompson ruled with an iron hand, ably as- 
sisted by Dave Robinson and Caroll Caru- 
thers. Dave came from Florida for the re- 
union and following his week's visit in Lew- 
isburg he and Mrs. Robinson proceeded to 
the Maine coast where Dave unfortunately 
developed an abscess that landed him in the 
Portsmouth (N. H.) hospital. We are glad 
to report however that Dave is now recov- 
ered and feeling fine again.

A thank you from all of us to Dr. and Mrs. 
Hugh D. Sims of the faculty for being so 
gracious as host and hostess to our class. 
We greatly appreciate their kindness and 
hope to see them again in 1959. 

At 3:00 P. M.. Saturday, we gathered at 
the German House for a delightful tea. The 
hostesses were Mrs. William Leiser and Mrs. 
Guy Payne assisted by their husbands. Eve-

This is being written on a perfect day in

so, we certainly are sorry to miss v'ou while 
on our visit here. Send us a letter instead.

GOOD. If you don't believe it look at our 
picture! We re-elected all officers and even 
added a treasurer, Mary Kunkle, to handle 
our growing funds. 

After ceremonies for the new science build- 
ing, we joined the marchers on the way to 
the gym and lunch. We filled two tables and 
can still cheer as lustily as the best of them. 

Sixth Street House was ours for the after- 
noon. Edna Whittam Glover outdid herself. 
She arranged a wonderful party with punch, 
cookies and all the trimmin's. She was 
unanimously re-elected chairman on arrange- 
ments for all time to come. Crissy delighted 
us with movies of our 25th and a jolly hour 

was spent in telling stones ot college days. 
Sammy Markowitz topped with his tales of 
the pea-green freshman. The old one-how 
he paid 25c for his radiator but how he 
wised up when the bold soph wanted him 
to pay $1.00 for the wall-paper. A little of 
the green had faded and he saved his money 
by telling the salesman to take the paper. 
Harry Weaver thanked one and all for help- 
ing us celebrate our 36th wedding anniver- 
sary. I thank you too. You didn't know it 
but 'tis true. 

Reluctantly we knew the hour had come to 
part. With farewells and one more happy 
memory of old Bucknell to stow away, we 
disperse. So adieu, a fond adieu, till we meet

CLASS OF 1919 

The 1919er3 turned out in goodly numbers 
for the meeting at the Vaughan Literature 
Building — 31 of them with 21 wives and 
children^ — although 22 more who had hoped 
to come, were unable to get there. It was 
the best attendance at a reunion that we have 
ever had. 

We were joined by Toniiny Maiigan, Ed 
Ashman, Joe Dent, and Don f^aher, who had 
all started out with us, but because of World 
War I service had finished ui) with later 
classes. In fact we tried lo ring Buck Shott 
in with us and he went so far as to wear the 
1919 Derby with us, We made a good show- 

ing in the parade down the Hill to the Gym, 
though we couldn't match the 1929 Ford that 
the '29 class had. 

There was the usual good food at the 
Luncheon and then we adjourned to the 
Edwards House for a social hour. Sam 
Abrams showed us that he is still a master 
at the piano, and sprung a surprise on us by 
doing several piano duets with his attractive 
daughter, who seems to have inherited Red's 
talent with the keys. 

A roll call of all members of the class was 
made by the permanent Class President, 
Frank Jones, and information pooled by all 
present with regard to any absentees. Al- 
though most of what we know has come in 
through answers to the 35-Year L'Agenda, 
we must acknowledge that Tommy Mangan 
has probably seen or talked to more of our 
classmates than anyone else in the last few 
years, by making it a point to look up Buck- 
nellians whenever he travels. 

Until a volunteer comes forward, Frank 
Jones will act as reporter, so write him news 
for 1919. The 3S-Year L'Agenda with write- 

ups of almost half the class can be called a 
success to judge from the comment about it. 
There are about 35 copies of the 35- Year 
L'Agenda on hand. If you have not yet re- 
ceived one you may obtain a copy b3r sending 
$1.00 to John H. Shott, Alumni Secretary, 
Bucknell University. 

With half the class contributing to the 
Alumni Fund, the total and percentage for 
the 5'ear surpasses anything previously done 
by 1919. Hurray for our side! 

Frank Rorabach and Ben Markowitz came 
all the way east for the reunion from Bloom- 
ington, Illinois, but Charlie Wainwright came 
a greater distance — from Winter Haven, 
Florida, where he is a state highway engi- 
neer. Norman Finger and Harry Angel had 
to come to this reunion to find that they have 
worked for the same company (Bethlehem 
Steel) for many years! And your reporter 
hadn't seen any of the five since 1919 except

CLASS OF 1924 

"Ain't it funny that some folks you can't 
An' some folks you jus' miss a pile 
An' the folks that you can't miss you see lots, 
An' the other folks, once in awhile." 

— Carrie Jacobs Bond 

Alumni Day, June twelfth, will long be 
remembered by forty-four members of the 
Class of 1924. The committee, for our thir- 
tieth reunion worked for months on plans to 
make this one surpass all others. In fact, 
the warning to list all members as deceased, 
unless the questionnaires were answered, 
brought prompt results! 

Our first meeting, Friday evening, was an 
outdoor buffet dinner at the Milton Country 
Club. The weather was perfect, the setting 
ideal, and those reminiscing found the words 
of Carrie Jacobs Bond all too true. 

Alumni Day, Saturday, was one round of 
activities from early breakfast at the Bison to 
the closing of the Jamboree in Davis Gym 
that evening. Our business meeting was 
highlighted by receiving our souvenir book- 
lets, canes, balloons and badges (our official 
insignia for the Alumni Parade), our class 


picture and the election of officers. (By the 
way, if any member paid for a booklet and 
did not receive it, please get in touch with 
Mrs. W. Calver Moore, 446 S. 49th Street, 
Philadelphia, Penna.) Class • officers elected 
were as follows: president, Edwin D. Robb; 
vice president, Foster D. Jemison; secretary, 
Mrs. Clarence Shaffer ; treasurer. Rev. R. O. 
Hudson; class reporter, Mrs. Paul J. Cupp; 
class fund manager. Dr. Merl G. Colvin. 

The Alumni Luncheon was the usual hap- 
py affair at which time one had the pleasure 
of seeing, meeting, and talking with dear 
friends of other classes. This was truly a 
grand introduction to the family party which 
followed immediately afterwards at Walker 
House, attended by seventy-four husbands, 
wives and children. 

The Jamboree, in the gym that evening, 
and the play, "Othello", climaxed the day's 
activities. Everyone who returned to Buck- 
nell declared our thirtieth reunion the best 
ever and faithfully promised to return to the 
next one!

CLASS OF 1929 

What a glorious "6000 years" the class: of 
1929 has had! Who would have dreamed 
that out of our depression class would have 
come famous doctors, prominent lawyers, 
nationally known business executives, teach- 
ers, community leaders, and last, but not 
least, the able circulation manager of Wil- 
liamsport's Grit — our own President Paul? 
Yes, all have done well. 

Your reporter is so enthused about every 
minute of the reunion that she is a bit be- 
wildered where to begin her story. On Fri- 
day evening, we found Martha Von Neida 
Waterbury on duty at the reception desk, 
greeting one and all as they came in to regis- 
ter in old Carnegie Library. Of course, your 
president Paul E. Fink and "Yours Truly" 
were on hand also. 

Saturday's activities started off with a class 
meeting in the new Bertrand Library, where 
Prof. Clyde Burgee welcomed class mem- 
bers, wives, husbands and children on behalf 
of our beloved University. 

At this time the reunion booklet, "6000 
Years of the Class of 1929", was presented. 
Your reporter takes pride in the excellent 
work done by our president and Emily Wil- 
liams Riemensynder on this issue of L'Agenda, 
twenty-five years later. They both deserve 
our thanks. 

The next order of business was the election 
of class officers. The following officers were 
elected by acclamation: president, Paul Fink;

CLASS OF 1934 

V ce president, William "Turk" Jones; sec- 
rctarj'-treasurer, Thelma J. Showalter. 

Following the meeting, we adjourned to 
toe front of the Literature Building where 
lurk had a 1929 model Ford in action. Those 
of you who were not with us on June 12 will 
have an opportunity to see it in the class 
picture. Our boy Turk really did a bang-up 
job toward making our 25th a big success. 
I ater. he along with Bill Mahood and John- 
nie Gittens rode in st3-le in our Ford to the 
.■\Iumni Luncheon. The highlight of the 
luncheon for the Class of '29 was the presen- 
tation of a check in the amount of $1500 by 
our president to the Alumni Fund. We are 
justly proud of the fact that ours was the first 
class to make a contribution as a class to the 
Fund. We trust that it will serve as an 
inspiration to other reuning classes in the 

From the luncheon, we moved on to the 
Milton Country Club, where good fellowship 
ruled supreme as long as even two members 
of the class remained. 

Yes. it was truly a big day. Your reporter 
wishes that she had the gift to write so that 
each of you who missed being with us might 
in some small way live for a few moments the 
joy and happiness of our "Day of Days." 

May I confess that in the midst of a rather 
busy life, your reporter finds herself dream- 
ing up ideas for our 30th in 1959.

Twenty-nine members of the Class of '34 
returned to Bucknell with, perhaps, a feeling 
of turning back the clock. Each one of us 
was a bit apprehensive. Time can be not 
only a healer, but a devastation on hair lines 
and waist lines ! 

When we gathered in the Ellen Clarke 
Bertrand Library, it seemed that the clock 
had really stopped in 1934. The women 
looked like "Sem Gems" and the men were 

Sanford Barcus presided at the meeting 
and introduced our Faculty Host, Professor 
John Gold. A message from President Eddie 
Myers was read and we regret that he was 
unable to be with us because he was at work 
on the new labor contract for United States 

An election was held with the following 
officers elected: president, Edward C. Myers; 
vice president, Sherburne B. Walker; secre- 
tary, Marie Steinbach Fox; treasurer, Vin- 
cent B. Wayland; class fund manager, Frank 
E. Gerlitz, Jr.; class reporter, Ruth Rohr 

Dorothy Kester was the member who had 
travelled farthest in order to attend. Dotty 
is doing a marvelous job as coordinator of 
speech education in the public schools of 
Akron, Ohio. 

Most of us were quite surprised and very 
pleased to hear that we have money in our 
Class Treasury. After discussion, it was 
decided to keep the money for another five 
years and then decide on its disposition. 

Walter Ruch did a magnificent job of edit- 
ing the reunion booklet. We are listed bio- 
graphically and statistically as "a preponder- 
ately church-going. Republican, child-rear- 
ing, middle class, club-joining, car and home- 
owning group." 

We really had a marvelous time! We 
chattered, wore Lidian Headdresses, marched 
in a parade, sent up balloons, and later had a 
purely social meeting. Sherb Walker will be 
in charge of Hospitality at our 25th and its 
not too early now to plan to "Shine in '59." 

— Marie Steinbach Fox, 

CLASS OF 1939 

The meeting opened with a pleasant greet- 
ing from our president, Jack Gaiilt, who then 
asked if there was a report on a previous 
meeting. There was none, so the first order 
of business was the election of new officers. 
The new officers are: president, Hob Smith; 
vice president, Bernice Henry Ralhmill; 
secretary, Mildred Stabler (iollnicU; trea- 
surer, Kurt Manrodl, Jr.; class fund manager, 
Leonard O. I'Viedman; class reporter, Davi' 

The formal business over, llu' ineeliiig re- 
solved itself into a real reunion, with the 
members present each introducing Ihem- 
sclves, giving a short history of their 15 

years as alumni — where they lived, wlial tliey 
were doing, and the status of their families. 

lUid Uunhani, from IJetroit, Mich, came 
the farthest of those who made the meeting, 

ICveryone was amazed at the size of some 
of the families produced by (juite a few of 
our 39'ers! 

Dave Bagcnslose received much deserved 
praise for (he reunion book. ICveryoiic .-igreed 
that it was a grand job. 

The meeling was adjourned so that we 
could get down to the lawn in front of the 
l.iteraturr liuildiiig for our class picture.

CLASS OF 1944 

Our 10th reunion is now a part of the past, 
but like Freshman Week in 1940 through 
Commencement in 1944, a very memorable 
part, thanks to the 26 members who jour- 
neyed from all corners to make it so. 

Perhaps we were all fooling ourselves, but 
it was agreed generally that everyone was 
recognizable and ten years had wrought no 
great change. However, we all seemed to 
appear more normal by Saturday night, hav- 
ing acquired that lack-of-sleep look symbolic 
of the years 1940-44. One of the nicest 
phases (to me, anyway) was the way we all 
just sort of "took up" where we left 10 years 
ago, and in several instances became better 
acquainted with some whose paths seldom 
crossed ours while we were in school. It 
was also nice meeting the wives and husbands 
who hadn't gone to Bucknell and who were 
so tolerant of the rest of us! The weekend 
was just wonderful, and I'm all ready to start 
campaigning for 1959. 

At our business meeting on Saturday 
morning Bill Schnure took over in Hank 
Puff's absence, with the following officers 
elected: president, Mai Lewis Strittmatter; 
vice president. Bob Baker; treasurer. Bill 
Schnure; secretary, Janet Leach; fund man- 
ager, Ray Irwin; and I was blessed again 
with Class Reporter. (Speaking of Ray, he 
was chairman of the entire Commencement 
and Reunion weekend, and did a terrific job 

... '44 was mighty proud.) The meeting 
should be classified as basically social, al- 
though we did vote unanimously to send two 
telegrams to absent members . . . one to 
Bob Keegan who was to pitch against the 
N. Y. Yankees the next afternoon, and the 
other to Dr. Gordon Brownell who had been 
invited to California to present his latest 
advancements in cancer research before the 
American Medical Association. 

Hope we're all recognizable in the picture. 
The few who didn't make it in time to be 
photographed were Gene Matthews, Jim 
Brady, Nip Edmunds, Jack Stockton, and 
Ray Irwin. 

Without question, the ones who traveled 
farthest to be with us were Sandy Sanger 
and his wife all the way from California. 
Had we the means to award prizes, the sec- 
ond one would have gone to the Gene Levitts 
and their two sons for a 550 mile journey 
from Ohio. 

Everything was arranged wonderfully by 
the LTniversity (AND Ray!) and the lunch- 
eon (1026 people there) was perfect. So, it 
isn't too early to look ahead and start think- 
ing of our 15th. We missed so many of you 
who couldn't come, but certainly enjoyed 
being with the ones who did . . . and thank 
you again and again for making the weekend 
so memorable.

June 12th! What a beautiful spring day! 
And what a wonderful day for our class 
reunion ! 

For some of the Class of '49 the reunion 
may have started Friday night but for most 
of us Saturday was the big day. At first 
things seemed a little strange to us since a 
new library and a new Lambda Chi Alpha 
house had appeared on the campus. Soon, 
however, we saw familiar faces and we were 
home again. 

Our first meeting of the returning mem- 
bers was held in Vaughan Literature Build- 
ing in the morning. Robert Camac, presi- 
dent, presided at the meeting. We were 
proud to see about 59 people here. The 
number at this meeting was not, to be sure, 
all who were back because many of the class 
did not appear on the campus until later that 

At the meeting. Dale Hay was elected 
chairman of our next reunion committee. To 
aid Dale, Barbara Jones Purnell was chosen. 
Other volunteers were accepted to help Dale. 

Many thanks went to Natalie Dann Craum- 

CLASS OF 1953 

CLASS OF 1949 

The class of '53 didn't come out to our first 
reunion in great numbers, but we were in 
great spirits! It felt like home to walk into 
the Bertrand Library and see so many faces 
for the first time since graduation. 

Vice President Norm Freytag called the 
meeting to order and was promptly elected 
President of the class, since former president 
Harry McSorley is now devoting all his time 
to divinity school studies. Mel Woodward 
was elected Vice President. 

Next, the person who traveled the greatest 
distance to get to reunion was determined, 
and the honor went to Mr. and Mrs. Greg 
Doescher who came from Fort Devon, Mass. 
They didn't come quite as far as Ambassador 
and Mrs. Hildreth, but it was a sizable dis- 
tance ! 

Mr. Ohl, who acted as faculty host, then 
caught us up on the campus news, including 
sports. Men's Student Government, social 
pro, racial discrimination in fraternities, and 



er for the endless hours she spent on prepar- 
ing the reunion book '"49 plus 5." 

At the all Alumni Luncheon we enjoyed 
our lunch of chicken salad, peas, potatoes, 
rolls, ice cream and cookies. And how we 
consumed the ice water for it was certainly 
a warm, warm day — just like the warm day, 
June 6th. 5 years ago! Remember? 

That afternoon we met in Stephens House 
for a good old gab session. Having left thi 
formal meetings behind, we spent several 
hours learning what had happened to each 
other in five long years. Some of us had put 
on a little weight and some of us had lost 
some hair but on the whole each one of us 
seemed exactly the same. 

We left this pleasant gathering to attend 
our symposia or to have dinner with friends 
in preparation for the Alumni Jamboree and 
Reception in Davis Gj'mnasium or for 
""Othello", the Cap and Dagger play. Thus 
we ended a wonderful day at our Sth year

all the other news we craved, still being 
students at heart. 

Attired in our very fetching hats we posed 
for our Kroup picture, then witnessed the 
Kround breaking ceremony of the new sci- 
ence building. Tagging along at the end of 
a very long line of alums, we paraded to the 
alumni luncheon which was a gala affair, each 
class trying to outdo the other in raising their 
numerals highest, via balloons. 

It was a gratifying experience to be a part 
of the class reunion. Unfortunately, a lot of 
'he manpower ol the class is in uniform and 
unable to gad about as of old. And others, 
■1-, .Mr. OhI said at our meeting, really don't 
ii-el like alums yet — it's a feclin" that grows 
with age. So, older and wiser, let's all plan 
to be together at our next reunion. It's an 
• vent that can be called — for lack of stronger 
word* — truly refreshing.

The Class of '54 entered into the activities 
of that long anticipated commencement 
weekend almost mechanically, as we realized 
with disbelief that four whole years had 
quickly slipped away. 

Old man sun, who has been known fre- 
quentljr to hide his face from the 300 acres, 
beamed his approval throughout the whole 

Although we were but infant members of 
the Alumni Association, we had no trouble 
assimilating our farewell with the schedule 
of the many reuning alums. One of the 
highlights of the weekend was the ground- 
breaking ceremony for the new Science 
building, a gift of the Olin Foundation. In 
a few years I wonder if we will recognize 
our Bucknell with all the construction plans. 

Probably the best representation of our 
class as a group (other than the commence- 
ment exercises) was the All-Alumni Lunch- 
eon. The Class of '54 was last in the proces- 
sion, but we boasted one of the few motor 
vehicles in the line-up, that memorable red 
convertible laden down with exhausted 

Saturday night offered the traditional Sym- 

posia, the Jamboree, and the Cap and Dagger 
production, "Othello." 

That element of doubt remained in the 
mind of each graduating senior until 11:35 
A. M. when each of us had received the offi- 
cial sheepskin. Upon the conclusion of the 
exercises the campus took on the aspect of 
a beehive; it was farewell to a climactic week- 
end and to student life at Bucknell.

Dear Friends : 

With our class president. Dr. Mary B. Harris, 
abroad, I assume the privilege of reporting that 
the Institute Class of 1894 was represented at 
its 60th anniversary in June 1954 by four of its 
loyal members: Mrs. Alice Probasco Mulford, 
Bridgeton, N. J.; Miss Mabel Callender, Dal- 
ton; Mrs. Elizabeth Bates Hoffman, Lewisburg; 
Mrs. Mabel Thomas Topping, Stratford, N. J. 

We saw many changes in Bucknell. but many 
said they saw little change in us. Our spirits 
and loyalty at least are unchanged, but 60 years 
are a long time to remain static. 

With every good wish for dear Bucknell and 
all its alumni,

MINNEAPOLIS— The meeting of Buck- 
nellian Baptists held in connection with the 
American Baptist Convention in Minne- 
apolis attracted a larger than usual crowd, 
27 Bucknellians from all over the United 
States being in attendance. The meeting 
was conducted by Dr. Romeyn H. Riven- 
burg '97, dean emeritus of Bucknell. 
Everybody is looking forward to the con- 
vention in 1955 to be held in Atlantic City 
when even more Bucknellian Baptists 
should be able to attend. 

PROVIDENCE— Bucknellians from the 
Providence Club ended the first year of 
their organization with a picnic at Arca- 
dia State Park in Rhode Island. 

Plans for next year were discussed and 
it was decided that three meetings would 
be held. The following schedule was ar- 
ranged. On Friday, October 29th, the eve 
of the Bucknell vs. Boston University 
football game, a dinner party will take 
place. For the second meeting, another

ANIA — Twenty-two alunmi and friends 
gathered at the dinner meeting of the 
Bucknell Alumni Club of South C e n - 
tral Pennsylvania held at the Hotel Wash- 
ington, Chambersburg, on May 6. "Buck" 
Shott presented the charter of the new or- 
ganization to Mrs James Strite (Janet 
Keefer '36), president 

Dr. and Mrs. James Gathings and Mr. and 
Mrs. Shott were the honored guests from 
campus and they brought the old grads up 
to date on activities on the liill. Dr. Gath- 
ings gave an interesting and informative talk 
covering college changes and innovations — 
building projects, educational projects, stu- 
dents and faculty. 

Plans will be made for future meetings, 
probably only several a year for the present, 
including a get-together on Founder's Day 
when it is hoped that a larger group will 
be able to attend. 

Officers include, Mrs. James Strite, presi- 
dent; Mrs. G. C. Madison (Sarah Louise 
Slaughenhaup '41), vice president; Mr. Dan- 
iel Davis '22, treasurer ; and Mrs. H. T.

Bob Keegaii Fan Club 

Members of the Bob Keegan fan club 
(and that probably includes many Buck- 
nellians) had a dinner in New York in 
mid-July prior to a Yankee- White Sox 
baseball game. After the game the gang 
of 25 Bucknellians, many of them Sigma 
Chi's. met with Bob. At press time his 
pitching record for the season is 15 wins 
and 7 lost, which accounts in large measure 
for the splendid record the Chicago White 
Sox are making this year.

years. Dr. Booth, better known by class- 
mates as "Buster," received his master 
of arts degree from Bucknell in 1910, 
two years after graduating summa cum 
laude froin the school of liberal arts. 
From here he went to Crozer Theologi- 
cal Seminary where he earned his 
bachelor of divinity degree in 1911 and 
his master of theology degree in 1922. 
In 1931, an honorary degree of doctor

All of you 1910ors! It's time now to 
begin planning to be in Lewisburg in 
June for that 45th reunion. Come your- 
self and round-up your friends. Let's 
make it a big occasion. 

Word comes from William Gatehouse 
that he is looking forward to the 1910's

ticipation. Bill was forced to retire

When we arrived in Lewisburg for 
the Alumni Luncheon in June we head- 
ed for the Carnegie Building (the old 
library) to pick up our luncheon tick- 
ets. By the way, have you seen that 
building? Well, you wouldn't know 
it — all dressed up — the floors are so 
polished that you couldn't see the shine 
on your nose. Just have to watch your 
step! Not nearly so nice as when we 
went to school. We used to sit at the 
long tables pretending to study and 
holding hands under the table. But 
they suit the building to the people 
and this generation doesn't need a place 
like that — they hold hands on the 

When I came out of the building 
there were the Heans, Mikles, Conners, 
"Rip" Ruth and "Sal" Fisher. We all 
started for the gymnasium in order to 
get a seat before the "old timers" made 
their appearance. During the lunch- 
eon I saw Leon Crandall '12 and Grace 
leave — saw Dave McNeal and Alberta 
at a distance, said "hello" to Pearl Wil- 
liams and Frank. Looked all around 
for Eva Himmelreich Apgar and Roy 
because I knew he was celebrating his 
40th. No luck! When "Buck" made his 
remarks during the luncheon meeting 
he said "We had reservations for 400 
people — we fed 1,000." Miraculous! The 
dietician must live right for that 
'stretching' was almost like the five 
loaves and two fishes feeding the 5,000, 
not including the children. 

This is when I dislike being a re- 
porter when I have a death to report. 
Robert Augustus Stoughton, 63, Cov- 
ington, Va., died Tuesday, July 13, 
1954, at his home. Death was sudden. 
Gus was an engineer at Covington for 
the past 28 years. He was a native of 
Lewisburg, and a brother-in-law of 
the late Christy Mathewson, of baseball 

He is survived by two sisters, Mrs. 
Mathewson and Mrs. Peter B. Cregar, 
Lewisburg, and also by several nieces 
and nephews. 

Send me some news. I have to make 
the honor roll this year. We have five 
- "real" editions and I must have some- 
thing to say in each one. If you don't 
know anything make up something as 
I do. The "little old paper rag" is 
dead and buried.

"The Iron Ore Outlook of the United

Richards, vice president of Republic 
Steel Corp., at a meeting of the Buck- 
nell Business Forum in Sunbury in 
February, has been published by the 
Bucknell University Press. Earl is an 
authority on the iron ore situation,

Paul L. Stein closed his working as- 
sociation with the Hewitt Rubber Co., 
Buffalo, N. Y. and returned to his native 
Lewisburg to the joy of his many local 
friends. His address, since April of 
this year, has been 38 N. Third Street. 

Although '54 was not an official re- 
union time for our class of '13, eight 
classmates did join hands and hearts in 


happy fellowship this year. The Mc- 
Clure porch was a center of reminis- 
cence and cheer on Friday evening 
following first greetings at the Univer- 
sity dining hall. On Saturday the alum- 
ni luncheon found us together at one 
table duly marked 1913. Also we par- 
ticipated as enthusiastic spectators at 
the ground-breaking ceremony for the 
Olin Science Building, and felt re- 
newed love for our Alma Mater with 
pride in her dignity and progress. 

For those absent this year, awaiting 
the 45th in 1958 and already preparing 
for it both mentally and financially, this 
may be said now. It is doubtful wheth- 
er a name of any classmate went un- 
mentioned this year in conversations 
of returnees. Come back next year if 
possible, and remember that 45th is al- 
ready in the making. You want to 
know who rejoiced together this year? 
Here are the names: Howard (Prexy

I went back to Bucknell for Alumni 
Day this past June and I enjoyed it so 
much that I hope to make it an annual 
visit. I w^as amazed to learn that on 
the morning of the luncheon there were 
relatively fevv- reservations, yet the 
crowd numbered more than 1,200. The 
food was excellent, service the best. 
You who have homes and families 
know the agony of having extra guests 
arrive when you have four pork chops 
or a pound of hamburg, so I want to 
put in my plug to all of you — next year 
make your reservations early. Didn't 
see too many members of the Class of 
1918, but did meet Russ Boyer and Dave 
Boswell. Dave was there with his son 
who was attending his reunion. Am 
told that Dave has written a most inter- 
esting pamphlet on the Life of Francis 
Bellamy. Bellamy, who wrote The 
Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag, was 

a member of the church in Rome, N. Y. 
where Dave has served as pastor for 
a number of years. Mr. Bellamy was

William H. Baumer, a 19,50 graduate in

as one of 15 prisoners held by the Red 
Chinese for political purposes. It was 18 
months prior to this news that the B-29 
pilot with thousands of hours of flying time 
in World War II and the Korean War was 
listed as missing in action over Korea. His 
name had been released over Peiping radio 
in January 1953 as a prisoner held in Man- 
churia, but his mother, Mrs. Mary E. Bau- 
mer of Lewisburg, was warned not to trust 
the news as valid until reported by the Red 

Ever since that time, a year and a half 
ago, Mrs. Baumer has been praying and be- 
lieving that her son is held prisoner, that 
he is alive and well. 

The exchange of Korean prisoners aroused 
hope, then became an incident in history. 
Still no word. 

Now there is definite hope. The hoped-for

Bill was alive and a prisoner, finally arrived,

Secularism A Myth. 
Harper and Brothers, X. Y. 

According to Dr. Edwin E. Aubrey. Pro- 
fessor of Religious Thought at the Univer- 
sity of Pennsylvania. Christian leaders and 
theologians have used the term "secularism" 
to cover all the conditions of society which 
they want to criticize. The reports of the 
Ecumenical conferences during the past three 
decades reveal that "secularism" has been 
used to designate at least twenty-six condi- 
tions including "rationalism." "philosophy," 
"democratic faith." "intellectualism," "moral- 
ism," and "historical method when applied 
to the biblical revelation." It is Dr. Aubrey's 
contention that this indiscriminate use of 
the term is unjustified and that the relation- 
ship of the religious with the secular needs 
to be redefined. Secularism A Myth was 
written to help fulfill this need. 

Chapter I, "The Chvu-ches' Attack on Se- 
cularism," considers the recent statements of 
Ecumenical leaders regarding secularism. 
Chapter II, "Christianity and Secular 
Thought Since the Renaissance," discusses 
the relationship of Christian thought and 
western culture. Chapter III, "The Secular 
Involvement of Religion," indicates how non- 
Christian practices and ideas have become 
part of the life of the Christian Church. 
Chapter IV, "Spiritual Values in Secular 
Movements," indicates that the religious 
significance of the secular and suggests that 
in all fairness the Christian ought to ac- 
knowledge the secular contributions to the 
welfare of men. Chapter V, "Religious 
Experience and Secular Thought," treats 
the relationship of revelation and faith to 
reason. Chapter VI, "A Christian Strategy," 
points out how the church can more effec- 
tively make its message relevant to society. 

Dr. Aubrey's book is a corrective to neo- 
orthodox theologj-'s inclination to draw sharp 
lines between church and society, the reli- 
gious and the secular. It is a reminder that 
no manifestation of religious faith has a 
monopoly on either truth or virtue ; that 
secular movements can and do reflect a deep 
religious concern. In many cases religious 
and secular movements ought to co-operate. 
The author points out that the real enemies 
'if the church are not the secular movements 
as such. "The real enemies are such exem- 
plars of greed as the unscrupulous merchant 
or the power-hungry secretary of a church 
board or the corrupt political leader; such 
hypocrites as the scheming diplomat, the eva- 
sive teacher of social problems or the preach- 
er who guards his reputation for eloquence at 
the expense of honest thinking in his ser- 
mons ; such oppression as that of the domi- 
neering wife or father, of the tyrannical 
trustee oi a college, or the autocratic bishop 
in the church. In other words, the church 
has no corner on goodness and the secular 
movements have no corner on badness . . ." 
(p. 1.16). 

Secularism A Myth is thorough, convinc- 
ing, and — in contrast to Continental theology 
-exceedingly refreshing. Its content is 
drawn from a wide variety of sources and 
the tK>ok is dricumentcd throughout. Dr. Au- 
brey, with his deliberative and imaginative 
mind, lifts the reader abf)ve all ccclcsia.stical 
and thcolr>giral dogmatism and arrogance 
and provides a vigorous and cogent discus- 
sion of one of the most imiKjrtant Issues in 
rcligi'ius thought.

CHARLES C. FRIES '09, A.M. '11, Ph.D. 
'22, D.Lit. '46. 

American English Scries. Books I and II. 
D. C. Heath & Co. 

Grammar, taken in its broadest sense as 
the study of language, has two sub-divisions : 
dcscriptiz'c, which attempts to discover how 
people speak and listen, write and read, and 
/'rcscripfiTc, normative or "school" grammar, 
which attempts to tell people how they should 
behave linguistically. 

Ideally, prescriptive grammar should be 
based on the findings of descriptive grammar. 
Actually, until quite recently it has chiefly 
consisted of an accumulation of precepts, 
largely prescriptive ("Don't do this, avoid 
that"), based on the prejudices of writers 
of textbooks, who often used paste and 
shears to follow the "rules" of earlier writ- 

In this century descriptive grammar has 
made astounding advances. But until re- 
cently complaint was made that the descrip- 
tive grammarians had done little to make 
their findings useful to the scltools. That 
criticism is no longer valid. 

One of the half-dozen leading grammar- 
ians in this country is Charles C. Fries, 
Bucknell '09. For a generation he has been 
publishing the results of extensive research 
into the behavior of English-speaking per- 
sons past and present. In 1940 appeared his 
epoch-making American Englisli Grammar. 
In the following years he applied the results 
of his studies to the development of the six- 
volume Intensive Course in English for Lat- 
in-American Students, which was then adapt- 
ed to the needs of students coming from 
other languages. Emphasizing the "oral ap- 
proach," this series became the most highly 
regarded text in this country for intensive 
study of every-day English. Not only the 
more than 2,500 students in the English Lan- 
guage Institute at the University of Michi- 
gan have profited by this work ; it has been 
of value to the many teachers of English 
abroad who were trained at Michigan, and 
by others who learned method from it. 

Now there have appeared the first books of 
a series developed by Dr. Fries with the aid 
of the Director of the English Section of the 
Department of Education of Puerto Rico, 
Professor Pauline Rojas, and her staff, for 
use in the elementary schools of tliat island 
and elsewhere. 

The service which will be rendered by 
these beautifully printed and attractively il- 
lustrated volumes can hardly be overstated. 
The population of the tiny island has dou- 
bled during the half -century since Puerto 
Rico was freed from Spain. The combina- 
tion of public health measures and resistance 
by reactionary elements to limitation of 
births, has accentuated an already acute prob- 
lem of over-population. 

For that reason, despite the enlightened 
l>olicies of Governor Munoz Marin, the mass 
movement of our Puerto Rican fellow-citi- 
zens to the continental United ,States seems 
iKiund to contiiuic. And despite the existence 
of a small fanatical anti-American group, 
which has prejudiced uninformed persons 
against them, Puerto Kicans in general are 
|)eaceful iiulustrious folk who can make a 
great contribution to our culture. Hut they 
can do this only if they can speak and under- 
stand American English. Until the language 
barrier is overcome they cannot make the 
contribution they are capable of. In this 
situation the great value of the Fries scries 
is clear.

The Faiths Men Live By. 

Prentice-Hall, Inc., N. Y., 1954. 

This e-xcellent and readable survey of the 
faiths by which men live covers a surpris- 
ing amount of religious territory. In twenty 
brief chapters, Dr. Potter pictures the many 
living religions of the Far and Near East, 
as well as most of the major divisions of 
Christianity found in our country. An ap- 
pendi.x outlines even more briefly the main 
characteristics of some of the fringe reli- 
gious sects in America. 

This is not a book written for theologians. 
And therein lies its main attraction. Dur- 
ing commencement week, Bertrand Library 
featured this book in one of its displays of 
the accomplishments of distinguished Buck- 
nellians. The display included a copy of the 
original typescript, with corrections by the 
author, the galley proofs and page proofs, 
and a letter explaining how the book came 
to be written. The letter tells how in 1947 
the editor of Fawcett Publications had chal- 
lenged Dr. Porter to "climb down off (his) 
Atlantic Monthly highhorse and visit Amer- 
ica," The result was a series of 17 articles 
which appeared in True Confessions maga- 
zine, outlining the faiths of the world and of 
America, written in such a way that theologi- 
cal education was not a prerequisite for un- 
derstanding. It is these articles, revised and 
expanded, that appear in The Faiths Men 
Live By. 

Each chapter is best described as a word 
picture of a given faith or religious prac- 
tice. The minute detail of theological ab- 
straction is omitted, and with a pen seem- 
ingly experienced at description. Dr. Potter 
"paints" pleasing and interesting sketches of 
the people who live by each faitli. The 
sketches are made real by the inclusion of 
brief stories and religious legends wliich 
illustrate the way believers think and act, 
and also by the inclusion, in most cases, of 
an equally brief biography of the founder of 
each faith. Thus each faith is described in 
terms of its people, rather than in terms of 
its philosophical concepts. 

One does not have the feeling that the 
brevity in this case is equal to superficiality. 
Each description would doubtless fall far 
short of satisfying an avid believer, and 
yet in those instances where this revfewer is 
qualified to judge, Dr. Potter shows both a 
knowledge of and an appreciation for the 
faith he is describing. 

It is inevitable, however, that in a book 
dealing with religion an author's own con- 
victions should be frequently ap|)arcnt. The 
one chapter wliich does become theological is 
that dealing with the Humanists and related 
groups, and it is not diflicult to di.scern that 
Dr. Potter is describing here his own faith. 

In certain other places, also, the author's 
own convictions have influenced his selection 
and presentation of material. To one who 
has rejected the so-called externals of the 
Christian faith, these externals nf custcimary 
t-hristian practice can easily stand out and 
seem to be all. So it is that ('hiislians are 
said to "worship Jesus," and the sketch of 
Roman Catholicism is woven around the 
practice of the veneration of relics. 

But selection according to some priiui|)lc' 
is essential in any book of this sort, and fur 
such a task as this Dr. Potter's broad toler- 
ance is without doubt more of an asset tliaii 
a li.ibility. lie has done an excellent job 
with a diiricnlt task, and liis book is both en- 
joyable and informative,

Reunion to Be Held at Homecoming 

Thirty-five years is a rather long stretch 
between reunions but the Bucknell Ambu- 
lance Sections 524 and 525 are going to 
remedy that situation by holding a first 
reunion of the sections at Homecommg 
time, October 23. The plans call for a 
special dinner on Saturday evening, Octo- 
ber 23, following the Homecoming game 
with Lafayette. 

The fifty Bucknellians who left their 
studies on the campus in 1917 after en- 
listment in the Bucknell Ambulance Units 
have never been properly recognized m 
the history of Bucknell activities. This 
does not infer that the contributions of 
the hundreds of other Bucknellians who 
volunteered for military service in World 
War I are less important than the work 
of the Ambulance Units. But since the 
ambulance men were recruited as units on 
the campus there should be a complete 
record of the University-organized group. 
The present article is a first attempt to 
bring together the record of this AU- 
Bucknell organization. 

Now to review some of the organiza- 
tional facts available in the files of the 
University. Fifty Bucknellians were re- 
cruited for the Bucknell Ambulance 
Units early in 1917. Although 36 men 
comprised a full company, Bucknell was 
credited with two units. Each unit was 
composed of 20 ambulance drivers, 3 tour- 
ing car drivers, 12 repairmen, and 1 clerk. 
Led by Lt. George H. Clapp the com- 
pany left the Bucknell campus in June 
1917 for Camp Crane in Allentown, trav- 
eling by special car. On arrival at Camp 
Crane they became sections 524 and 525 
of the U. S. Army Ambulance Corps, 
commonly known as the USAACS. While 
at Camp Crane, Reginald S. Newbury '17 
died of pneumonia. He was the first 
Bucknell student to die in service in 
World War I. 

The records show that in April 1918 
the Bucknell Alumni Club of Philadel- 
phia, instead of holding their regular 
spring banquet, contributed the banquet 
money to a fund for the Bucknell Ambu- 
lance LTnits. 

The following is a chronological ac- 
count as near as can be learned of the 
activities of Section 524: 

May 29, 1917 — Mustered into service as 
enlisted men for the duration of the war.

The following is a chronological ac- 
count, as near as can be learned, of the 
activities of section 525: 

May 29, 1917 — Mustered into service as 
enlisted men for "the duration of the 
war." Furloughed to June 9, 1917. 

June 9 — Left Lewisburg as a company 
at 8:37 a. m., for Camp Crane, Allentown, 
Pa. Drilled, lectures, not enough uni- 
forms to go around. Received inocula- 
tions, practiced driving Ford ambulances,

August 20 — Arrived St. Nazaire, France. 
Remained in camp there to assemble Ford 
ambulances and drove off in them in con- 
voy September 29, 1917. 

October 9 — Arrived at front line near 
Verdun to take over from American Field 
Service one day before American infantry 

took over a sector of front line to the 
right. Served in campaigns around Ver- 
dun — later at Oise-Aisne, Aisne-Marne, 
Champagne and finally went to Alsace 
where they were when the war ended. All 
the service was with the 63rd and later 
with the 68th French Army Division 
(from Bordeaux district). After the ar- 
mistice the division occupied the town of 
Neulhouse in Alsace and remained in that 
vicinity until March 1919. Went by train 
to Brest, sailing for home in April, and 
demobilized at end of the month from 
Camp Dix, N. J. 

Unit 525, with its commander, Lt. H. H. 
Parsons, arrived back at Bucknell in May 
1919 after 2i months of active service in 
France. Every man wore French Croix 
de Guerre and a Division Citation Ribbon. 
The day of their arrival the University of- 
ficials declared a holiday in order that stu- 
dents could join the townspeople of Lew- 
isburg in a parade welcoming the men 
home The officers of unit number 525 
were Lt. George H. Clapp, 1st. Sgt. Alex 
Chalfant, Sgt. Allen Willson, Corp. Leroy 
Clark, Company Clerk E. R. Bainbridge. 
Later Lt. Clapp was replaced and early in 
1918 Lt. (later Major) Henry L. Bibby 
became leader. In August 1918, Lt. H. H. 
Parsons took over and stayed with the 
unit until its return to the United States. 
Walter Beyer became a sergeant. 

Bucknell is justly proud of all of her 
sons and their service to the nation and 
would like to make a lasting memorial 
record of every military man. Perhaps 
we can start by gathering together a 
more complete record of these campus 
units. The achievements of these Buck- 
nellians while in service and since have 
been a sterling example for those who 
have followed. 

There follows a list of the Bucknellians, 
classified as far as possible by unit, re- 
cruited on the campus. The names of 
other men who were not Bucknellians but 
were added to the units at Camp Crane are 
also included. The class year listed is the 
class with which the man entered Buck- 
nell but is not necessarily the year of 
graduation as now recorded on the Uni- 
versity records. If you can add names and 
addresses, your help will be greatly appre-

Sudden Death of Dr. 
Robbins Shocks Campus 

Dr. Harry W. Robbins, 71, head of the 
Department of English until his very recent 
retirement on June 14, died suddenly on the 
19th of that same month. Xo record of ill 
health preceded his death. He was amidst 
plans for a trip to his summer home in Ver- 
mont when he was stricken. 

A native of Vermont, Dr. Robbins, known 
by those who loved and revered him as 
"Robbie," was a graduate of Brown Uni- 
versit}- where he received his A.B., liked 
the school so much that he staved to earn 
his M.A. in 1908; he received' his Ph.D. 
from the Universitj- of Minnesota in 1923. 
His wife, the former Florence Bliss Lyon 
of Ph-mouth. Mass.. whom he married in 
1910, surv'ives him. They had no children. 

Many articles have been written in ad- 
miration and memory of Robbie. The June 
1954 issue of the ALUMNUS carried on 
page 8 a feature "Robbie Retires," Therein 
were poured the thoughts and feeling of all 
of us who knew him and are now unable to 
pick up the Western World Literature text 
or pass the \'aughan Lit English office 
without reflecting upon the very full life 
of accomplishment that Robbie led. He was 
a member of First Baptist Church, Lewis- 
burg ; Lambda Chi Alpha ; a founder and 
past president of the Bucknell chapter. Phi 
Beta Kappa ; the American Association of 
University Professors ; Early English Text 
Society : and Le Societe des Anciens Textes 

We find a most suitable siunmation of in- 
sight into Robbie's character in the 1953 
L'Agenda, feelingly dedicated to him. Part 
of this dedication read : 

"Beneath the seeming New England aus- 
terity that is characteristic of Dr. Harry 
\V. Robbins lies a Frostian humour, a gen- 
tle understanding of the minds of men, and 
a scholarly mind rich in literature and in life. 
During his seventy years, 'Robbie' has been 
a football player and a journeyman printer, 
an army captain, a high school teacher, and 
for the past thirty years, a professor of 
English . . . 

"The rigors of academic duties have never 
succeeded in hiding the twinkle in his eyes. 
his almost boyish satisfaction over a good 
bridge hand, or the dry wit expressed in mut- 
ed asides. Students who penetrate the Ver- 
mont severity discover that 'Robbie' is both 
warm and kind, that he has a keen aware- 
ness and an understanding that can spring 
only from years of studying, of reading, and 
of living." 

Yes, his physical self lies in the shaded 
I-cwisburg cemetery with the roar of Route 
15 near by, but his spirit and his many stu- 
dents will live on and learn on. As Reverend 
Morse Bettison said at Dr. Robbins' funeral, 
"a teacher and what he imparts are never 
forgotten." And truly RobI)ic was a great 
teacher, scholar, and friend. 

iVIanchester '08 Dies 

Buckncllians were shocked to learn of tin- 
unfX[»cctcd death of Edwin K. Manchester 
'08 from a heart attack suffered while he 
and his wife were visiting Mr. and Mrs. 
Earl Si.svm f Marion G. C'iC '27) in Fac- 
tf»ryvillc over the July 4th weekend. 

Mr. Manchcfttcr, who resided in Wilming- 
ton, was editor of the iJuI'ont magazine for 
^2 years until hi.s retirement in September 
\'>5<). Prior to his joining the Dul^ont Com- 
pany in \'J\H he served as a s<:1kk)I teacher, 
auditor, publicity director, advertising man- 
ager ami editor for a number of organiza- 
tions in the Srranton area. Since his gradu- 
ation from Burknell in 1908 with the degree 

.S K f T K M H K K I » S « 

of Bachelor of Arts in jurisprudence, he 
had been an ardent alumni worker and took 
a large part in the organization of tlie Buck- 
nell Alumni Club of Wilmington. He was 
a member of Phi Gamma Delta fraternity, 
the Kiwanis Club of Wilmington, Exchange 
Club, Westminister Presbyterian Church, and 
Masonic organizations. 

The University and his classmates of 1908 
extend sincere sympathy to his wife, the 
former Kathryn E. Reynolds and his daugh- 
ter, EHzabeth M. Manchester '35, who is 
assistant director of the Children's Bureau of 
Delaware. His only son, Capt. Edwin R, 
Manchester, Jr. was killed on a bombing- 
mission over Germany in 1943. 

Ed was highly regarded by his home town 
associates, as attested in an editorial appear- 
ing in the Wilmington Press a few days 
after his death, which read in part as fol- 
lows : "As editor of the DnPont Magazine 
during the time when DuPont was going 
through its great diversification, Ed Man- 
chester's byline became nationally known. 
Following the path of the company's prod- 
ucts he descended coal mine shafts, stood in 
dusty quarries, watched great dams built, 
and peered into the intricate glass maze of 
chemical laboratories. He wrote of what he 
saw in spare, unadorned fashion, and with 
a passion for accuracy which led his publi- 
cation to be accepted with the same confi- 
dence accorded a text. 

"A quiet, unassuming man, with a ready 
smile and dry wit, he was on first-name-call- 
ing status with the generation of men who 
brought DuPont to its present status in the 
chemical industry and American industry. 

Wally Diehl '26 Dies 

Glenn Walter "Wally" Diehl '26, one of 
Bucknell's greatest fullbacks and one-time 
captain of the Bison herd, passed away at 
his home in Somerton last May 29. Wally 
was 49 when he died. He will never be for- 
gotten by Bucknellians and fans who fol- 
lowed his years at Bucknell and, later, his 
playing for, and coaching of, the Frankford 
Yellowjackets (forerunners of the Philadel- 
phia Eagles). 

Wally was married in 1929 to Ora Coop- 
er '29 whose father, Dr. Charles D. Cooper 
'OS, captained the Bucknell pigskins in his 
undergraduate days. Ora's mother, the for- 
mer Cottie Albright '05, is the fourth Buck- 
nellian in this family. 

A native of Mt. Carmel where he played 
high school football, Wally Diehl attended 
the University of Pennsylvania for one year 
during whiclt he captained the freshman 
football team there. Transferring to the 300 
acres, he spent three years on the field here 
during which time George "Lefty" James 
'30, now coach at Cornell, was a teammate. 

Wally is survived by his wife, two daugh- 
ters, Mrs. Thomas E. Morrow and Claire 
Cooper, 14, and two sons, John Albright, 18, 
and Charles Walter, 16. Both .sons follow in 
tlie football loving footsteps of their famous 

He was constantlj' doing small kindnesses for 
his friends, a fact which makes his passing 
cut the deeper among all who were priv- 
iledged to know him."

Tne Ne^v Alumni President 

Looks At Tne Year Aneaa 

I a-m assuming that you are interested in Bucknell, else why luoidd yon he 
reading this? It is ahout that interest of yours— and the year that lies ahead— 
which I write. 

There are 15,000 of us Buchiellians. Our interest ranges all the way from

There's still a big job to be done if we are to end the year that lies ahead 
wiili even greater alumni spirit and enthusiasm. Here are som-e suggestions: 

Talk Bucknell among your friends and acquaintances— help in recruiting 
top-quality prospective students for Bucknell. 

Get interested in local alumni club activities— if there is no club, why not 
organize one? 

Contribute regularly to the Ahimni Fund in proportion to yoiw ability. 

Come back to the campus whenever you can, especially on Alumni Week- 
end in June or at Homecoming.

Clyde P. Bailey '29 Heads Alumni Fund ij^ ^^UA ^A4U€ 


Another "charter" member of the alumni fund program became chairman 
of the Bucknell Alumni Annual-Giving Fund at the beginning of the fund 
year, July 1, 1954. He is Clyde P. Bailey of the Class of 1929. Taking over 
the chairmanship from Andy Mathieson '20, who last year established new 
hiMis for the Fund in percentage of participation, total dollars contributed, 
number of contributors, and average gift, Clyde has outlined a program of 
activity that will bring the story of the Fund and the financial needs of Alma 
Mater to the doorsteps of thousands of Bucknellians during the coming year. 
Already a group of potentially large givers have had a personal message on fund 
needs from Clyde. Last year, as chairman of the pilot program of personal 
soHcitation for the Fund in Allegheny County, he recruited five captains and 
20 agents who called on 163 Bucknellians and received "on the spot" contribu- 
tions from over half of them, many of whom were first time donors. 

Clyde's activities on the campus as a student, both curricular and extra- 
curricular, were pointed towards his career as a lawyer. Active in the Pre- 
Legal Fraternity, he served as its president and debated against Oxford Uni- 
versity. He was secretary of the Senior Tribunal in his senior year. A member 
of Phi Lambda Theta, he was president in his senior year, and after graduation, 
was chosen president of the national body in 193 5. In addition to all these 
student activities he was assistant to the University Registrar during almost his 
entire stay in college. 

He earned his LL.B. at Duquesne University Law School in 193 3 and 
immediately entered the practice of law in Pittsburgh and over the years he 
has argued a number of precedent-setting cases before the Supreme Court of 
Pennsylvania. He is now a partner in the law firm of Weller, Wicks & Wallace, 

In Bucknell Alumni affairs he has always shown an interest, and activity 
in all University fund-raising campaigns followed as a matter of course. Chair- 
man of the Pittsburgh area in the Bucknell 100th Anniversary Gift Campaign 
and the Heating Plant Campaign just naturally led to an early activity in the 
Alumni Annual-Giving Program. A former president of the Bucknell Alumni 
Club of Western Pennsylvania, and president of the General Alumni Association 
in 1947-48, he was nominated as a member of the Board of Trustees of Bucknell 
University, serving a six-year term which ended just this year. 

It was perhaps inevitable that Clyde should have a lOO^c Bucknell family. 
He married the former N. Dorothy Lemon of the Class of 1929, and their son. 
Jack, who graduated from Bucknell in 195 3, soon thereafter married Sally Lee 
Dietrich of the Class of 1954. A second son, now in high school, is expected to 
enter as a freshman upon graduation from high school. The Baileys live at 16 
Churchill Road, Pittsburgh.

It Happened Here 

Twenty Years Ago — 1934 

During Homecoming, President Homer 
P. Rainey announced the definite plans 
for Bucknell's Centennial year, including 
a $6,000,000 Building Program. The pro- 
gram included a renovation of Taylor 
Hall. They should see it now! ! ! Taylor 
Hall has just been renovated again; it 
looks like a new building. 

The Cover Pictures 

The front cover shows Dr. Norman H. Stewart, professor of zoology, climbing the hill to 
Taylor Hall just as he has for over forty years, but there's a new gleam in his eye this fall as he 
anticipates the improved facilities available in the newly renovated building. 

The back cover portrays plaques mounted in the rebuilt Taylor Hall by the Philadelphia 
Bucknell Alumni Association as a tribute to the late S. Dale Spotts '18 and the plaque provided by 
the "Doctors For Bucknell." Other plaques in the building mark gifts from the Bucknell Fathers 
Association; the late John Houihton Harris, Bucknell Trustee: the gift of 0. V. W. Hawkins 'IS, 
Bucknell Trustee, and Mrs. Hawkins, the former Marian K. Harman '1+ in memory of Mrs. Haw- 
kins' parents, Laura E. and Jacob C. Harman; and gifts from the Kresge Foundation, Detroit; 
and the Davella Mills Foundation, Montclair, N. J.

The Ciirriciiluni: Then, Now, and Tomorrow 

OLD MAIN — When the Curriculum Was Chiefly Latin and Greek 

The First Annual Catalogue of the Of- 
ficers and Students of the University at 
Letvisburg, 1850-51, defines the course of 
study which was prescribed for the sixty- 
one students who were then attending the 
university. (In 1850, the annual tuition was 
thirty dollars, the room rate "on the Hill" 
was seven dollars and fifty cents a year, and 
according to the Catalogue, "board, including 
lodging, washing, fuel, and light" could be 
had in town for as low as a dollar and a half 
a week.) Elect! ves, of course, were unheard 
of ; every student took precisely the same 
course of study. In all, thirty subjects were 
taught by the faculty of six, each student 
taking about four subjects a term. 

The courses in the curriculum of 1850 were 
chiefly in Greek and Latin, although English, 
mathematics, and the practical sciences were 
also present. A freshman during his first 
term, for example, would study Algebra, 
Xcnophon, Livy, Latin Composition, Fiskc's 
CUmiciil Manual, and English Language 
and 0<mfKrtiti'm. 

By I'XIO, Buckncll University (the new 
name had been adopted in 1886) had grown 
^'>n^id^■rat>ly. and the curriculum had undcr- 
K'>nr- vimc significant changes. Three hun- 
dred and fifteen students were tiow being 
taught by a faculty of twt-nty-one teachers. 
The rollcge rate was ninety doll.irs per yar, 
■^nt\ tK»ard cost atxjut two and a half dollars 
a week, laundry twenty-five cents extra. 
S V F, M B K R 10 5 1 

According to the fiftieth Annual Catalogue, 
the undergraduate could choose one of four 
courses of study : the Classical Course, the 
Philosophical Course, the Scientific Course, 
the Eclectic Course. The number of sub- 
jects taught by the faculty had risen to one 
hundred and fifty-eight. 

The Bucknell freshman in 1900 would be 
required to take during his first term courses 
in geometry, algebra, Cicero, Livy, Homer, 
Greek composition, and elocution. In the 
first term of the senior year, the student was 
compelled to take only Psychology, Litera- 
ture, and Oration ; he would have completed 
his schedule by choosing courses from the 
following list of electives : Demosthenes, 
Tacitus, Lessing, Anglo-Saxon, French, His- 
tory, Composition, Law, Blackstone's Cotn- 
mentarics, International Law, Geology, Prac- 
tical Astronomy, Comparative Anatomy, and 

The description of the curriculum in the 
195.3-54 issue of the liucknell Catalogue in- 
dicates that the conception of what kinds of 
subjects a university should teach has 
changed drastically in the past lunulrcd 

The range of subjects in the present i ui- 
riculum at IJuckncIl is very great. A faculty 
of about one hunflred and forty niombers be- 
longing to thirty aeadeinir dep.'irlnients an- 
nounces through the Calalogue that it is 
qualified and willing to teach about seven 

hundred and fifty courses. (Many of these 
are seldom offered ; in the fall semester of 
1954 about two hundred and fifty courses are 
being given.) The alphabetical range is from 
Aerodynamics to Zoology with such diverse 
subjects as Geomorphology, Biometrics, Net- 
works and Filters, Photography, archery, 
Xenophon, Solfeggio, Charlemagne Ro- 
mances, weight-lifting, and Eurythmics ap- 
pearing in between. 

Perhaps as .striking a feature of the present 
curriculum as its range is the flexibility with 
which it is operated. There are no all- 
university rc<|uircmciits in English literature, 
in the foreign languages, in mathematics, or 
in history, although some of these subjects 
are required for students in particular fields. 
The philo.sophy underlying the present broad, 
flexible curriculum is that each student is 
unique, each has his own particular goals, ami 
therefore each has his own particular needs. 
The as.sumption behind the philosophy is tliat 
each student knows himself well enough to 
be certain of his goals and is wise enough to 
know how to achieve them. 

The elective system, which, developing in 
\\u: ])ast Inindrcfl years, slowly at first and 
then after 1900 more and more rajiidly, had 
become almost universal in American col- 
leges and universities by 1940, has recently 
been subjected to some reappraisals. Many 
educators have come to feel that two para-

New Faculty Members 

The Bucknell faculty welcomed to its ranks 
this past fall twenty new professors and 
three ROTC officers. Fifteen of the new-

now an instructor in English. Mr. Tilton 
received his A.B. and M.S. degrees at Buck- 

Assuming command of the Bucknell ROTC 
is Lt. Col. Joseph Chaufty, a graduate of 
West Point and holder of a master's degree 
in civil engineering from Iowa State. Hav- 
ing served in Europe during World War II 
and again in 1952, Col. Chaufty has been 
awarded the Bronze Star and the Purple

tive officer, replacing Lt. Col. W. J. Besser. 
Col. Morgan formerly was located at the 
Fifth Army headquarters in Chicago. 

Four ROTC staff members remain from 
last year. They are: Major Arthur W. 
Delaney, Major Jimmie L. Pittman, Capt. 
Thomas Johnson, and Master Sergeant Allen 

New Faces in the 
Bucknell Family 

Two assistant deans were welcomed to the 
campus this fall as Miss Martha Harris was 
named to succeed Miss Cynthia Goddard as 
assistant dean of women, and Mr. Ralph F. 
Soelzer was appointed assistant to Malcolm 
E. Musser, Dean of Men. 

Miss Harris has come to us from Los 
Angeles, California, having received her 
A.B. degree at Occidental College and her 
M.A. in guidance at Columbia University. 
While at Columbia, she lived at International 
House, working in the program office there. 
Fler most active duties will be those of ad- 
viser to freshman women and head resident 
of Larison Hall. 

Mr. Soelzer, assistant to the dean of men 
and director of men's residence halls, is a 
graduate of the University of Illinois where 
he majored in English. Also holding an 
M.A. degree in counselling and guidance, he 
formerly taught in the Areola, 111. high 

The Curriculum 

(Continued from Page 3) 

doxical dangers inhere in this system : one, 
the knowledge outside of his major subject 
which the student acquires is likely to be 
fragmentary and superficial, and two, the 
student often becomes a specialist in a single 
narrow field, despite efforts to avoid this 
contingency. In the past decade a significant 
number of leading universities (Harvard, 
Yale, and Chicago, for example) have been 
experimenting with programs which stress 
the teaching of knowledge in terms of its 
historical development as well as its immedi- 
ate practicality, the teaching of basic ideas 
as they relate to many diverse fields of study, 
and the teaching of the basic skills of thought 
and expression as tools with which to in- 
tegrate acquired knowledge and to pursue 
new ideas. At Bucknell the four-semester 
University Course, which recently was 
awarded a $25,000 grant from the Carnegie 
Foundation, is an experiment of this kind. 
And mindful that the university will never 
arrive at the place where it has constructed 
for all time the best curriculum which it can 
offer, mindful that in a world which never 
stands still vision in the educator and flexi- 
bility in his system are desperately needed, 
the Dean of the College with the help of the 
faculty has been re-evaluating the present 
curriculum. For over a hundred years the 
evolution of the curriculum at Bucknell has 
been motivated by a constant purpose : to 
improve the quality of the education which 
the university offers to the student. 

FRESHMEN — Class of 1958 — and Their Relatives 

Thirty-nine members of the fresliman class are the sons or daughters of Bucknell 
parents and a total of 117 out of the entering class of 555 new students have relatives who 
are Bucknellians. Among the relatives listed are one great-great-grandfather, one great- 
grandfather, one grandmother, two grandfathers, nineteen brothers, eighteen sisters, nine- 
teen uncles, and nine aunts, sixty-one cousins and other distant relatives. 

This year's entering students who are children of Bucknellians are listed below with

Architect's draHing of the section of the campus ■loi) o' the Hill,-' showing the location of 

the new dormitory tor freshman men (in circle) now under construction and plans for 

future development of that area. 

In the first nine years of Bucknell Univer- 
sity's Second Century, her total assets will 
have been nearly doubled. 

Back in 1946 when the Second Century 
Development Program was inaugurated, the 
University's physical assets were valued at 
approximately $3,900,000 and her endowment 
fund stood at $1,500,000 in round figures, for 
a grand total of $5,400,000. 

At this writing, the value of the Univer- 
sity's property is placed on the books at $5,- 
WXI.fKXJ and the endowment fund stands at 
S2/m.m) for a total of $8,200,000. By the 
end of the current academic year, when the 
present building projects have been com- 
pleted, it is estimated that the University's 
a-><.ets will be up another $1,500,000 for a 
Kranrl total in the neighborhoocl of $10,- 

Three years ago, when the ALUMNUS 
rep'/rtcd on the status of the Second Century 
Development Program, it stated that two of 
the program's six building projects had been 
compbfted. These were the heating plant 
arwl the new library. Now, with the con- 
•truction of the F. W, Olin Science Building 
well under way, the situation can be nearly 
rfnore»I by the .ttatctncnt : Three Up and 
Three To Go, 

The factors not covered by that phrase 
are the renovation of Taylor Hall, wliiih 
ha« just iKfcn completed and the construction 
of a new dormitory for freshman men that 
V O V K M n K R 1 B ■! ♦ 

has just been started. These were contingen- 
cies not foreseen by the original designers 
of the Second Century Program. 

The remarkable thing about this rapid im- 
provement of the University's position is 
that much of this work has been done without 
interference with the University's efforts to 
build up the Annual Giving Program among 
Alumni. Follf)wing the Heating Plant cam- 
paign which was a full-scale effort among 
all Alumni and Friends of the University, a 
definite policy was established tliat there 
would be no more such cam])aigns until such 
time as the Alumni Fund had reached a 
status comparable to those of otlicr leading 

Consequently, no campaign was organized 
to erect a new library and fortunately, gifts 
from a small number of individuals, notably 
Mrs. Kllen Clarke Berlraiul, made this build- 
ing possible. The Olin Science Building 
came as the result of a single gift by the 
Olin bVjundation. 

A number of Alumni contriliulcd volun- 
tarily to the renovation of Taylor Hall, but 
for the part, the funds came from 
Friends, Parents, Industry and Fomulations. 
However, it should be noted here that Hurk- 
nellians now in medicine or allied liclfls were 
naturally the most interested in the Taylor 
Hall proje<'f. In addition to giving funrls to 
the project, lliey have also organized so llial 
their support of the Biology Dcii.irliiniil Is 
tr> be a continuing thing. 

The new men's dormitory, also has been 
made possible without benefit of a full-scale 
campaign. In fact, the bulk of the funds 
necessary for this project are being made 
available by the Trustees of the University. 
At the present time 27 members of the Board 
liavc pledged or paid $321,000 toward this 

Three major items from the original Sec- 
ond Century Development l^rogram remain 
to l)c checked off. These are a Cha])cl-Audi- 
torium, a new Social Science and .-ulclitions 
to the Men's Gymnasium. 

In the meantime, other projects have 
nudged their way into the picture. ImkIow- 
lucnt for faculty salaries and scholarshijis 
are demanding attention and with the erec- 
tion of the Olin Science Building and the 
new dormitory, funds nuist lie found with 
which to remodel the old cheniislry liuildiiig 
and the (|iiarters occupied by the Physics 
ncpartment in l'2ast College. A new women's 
dormitory to replace the many houses on 
Si.\lh Street has been proposed and better 
facilities for the Commerce and I'inance 
Department and the School of Music are 

Which one of these projects will be given 
(op |)riorily is a matter for the Board to 
decide, bill in any event, if the Univer,sity 
can continnc lo increase its assets by $500,000 
per yc'.-ir as it has done over the past nine 
years, there is no question but what Buck- 
nell's needs will be met eventually. 

The Recent Student Demonstration 

After six years of study, trial, and ex- 
perience in efforts to control student drink- 
ing, the Executive Committee issued a state- 
ment on September 22 stating that the use 
and possession of alcoholic beverages, nor- 
mally banned in all university buildings, 
would hereafter be banned as well in the 
fraternity houses. Naturally this subject has 
been of a controversial nature, but the ad- 
ministration in arriving at its decision has 
done so only after a determined effort to act 
honestly and sincerely in the interests of the 
individual student and the university. 

Disregarding for the moment the several 
moral factors as well as the historical back- 
ground of the university, the college officials 
were practically compelled to recognize the 
fact that a large percentage of the student 
body is under age and that any other posi- 
tion taken by the university would, in effect, 
condone the breaking of the Pennsylvania 
State Laws. There are undoubtedly many 
phases that could be considered in connec- 
tion with this subject; but the honest effort 
on the part of the university to work for 
the best interests of the students is readily 
recognized and it is hoped and expected that 
the alumni and friends of the institution, as 
well as the student body, may see the value 
of the position taken by the university and 
support the new regulation. 

The announcement of the new policy was 
made by the Executive Committee at a meet- 
ing of the fraternity presidents and social 
chairmen. The meeting was also attended 
by a number of the alumni advisors of the 
fraternities. The Executive Committee is 
composed of Dr. William H. Coleman, vice 
president and dean of the college ; Malcolm 
E. Musser, dean of men ; Miss Mary Jane 
Stevenson, dean of women ; Dr. Dayton L. 
Ranck, vice president and treasurer ; George 
R. Faint, registrar ; Walter C. Geiger, super- 
intendent of grounds and buildings ; and 
three members of the faculty elected by the 
faculty — Dr. Albert Blume, associate profes- 
sor of German ; Prof. John F. Zeller, III, as- 
sistant professor of political science ; and 
Dr. Manning A. Smith, professor of chem- 
istry. The statement of the Executive Com- 
mittee reads as follows : 

Because of the confusion and misunder- 
standing which have developed in inter- 
preting the University's policy on the use or 
possession of alcoholic beverages at Buck- 
nell, the University Executive Committee 
deems it advisable to set forth a precise 
statement on the subject. 

The Committee has adopted the following 
regtdation, effective immediately : "Posses- 
sion or use of alcoholic beverages in any 
form is prohibited in all University buildings 
and fraternity houses." 

Bucknell, since her founding, has been 
opposed to the use or possession of alcoholic 
beverages on the college campus. Five years 
ago, the University's trustees went on record 
with this official statement of policy : 

"Possession or use of alcoholic beverages 
on the campus, including fraternity houses, 
is completely opposed to the best interests of 
Bucknell and any use thereof resulting in dis- 
credit to Bucknell will be handled with the 
utmost severity. 

"The use or possession of alcoholic bev- 
erages has been traditionally forbidden in 
all college buildings, and on this point there 
is apparently little misunderstanding. 

"In the case of fraternity houses, however, 
the policy has been interpreted somewhat 

"Bucknell's administrative officers have 
given this matter intensive consideration 
over a long period. It seems to us to be 
highly inconsistent to insist upon one interpre- 


tation of policy for students living in the 
college dormitories and to permit another in- 
terpretation in fraternity houses. 

"Nor can we condone a situation in which 
alcoholic beverages are unlawfully furnished 
to minors. 

"We have therefore concluded that a spe- 
cific ruling covering both college buildings 
and fraternity houses is necessary in order 
properly to execute the policy formulated by 
the trustees. 

"At the time that the trustee statement 
was announced in 1949, it was indicated by 
the trustees that the implementation of this 
policy was an administrative matter, to be 
handled by the college officials on the 

"The Executive Committee has accord- 
ingly acted to define our policy by prohibit- 
ing the use of alcoholic beverages in all 
Bucknell buildings and fraternity houses." 

Publication of the full statement of the 
Executive Committee two days later in 
The Bucknellian, student newspaper, and 
a short editorial pointing out that prohibition 
would cause increased drinking off campus, 
resulting in dangerous driving after drinking 
and suggesting the proposal made by the 
fraternities last spring, i. e., "tolerate drink- 
ing but punish severely and consistently all 
the groups or individuals who practice in- 
discriminate drinking" were the first re- 
actions to the announcement. During the 
following week the fraternities, through the 
Interfraternity Council, were busy discussing 
a proposal of compromise on drinking in 
fraternity houses to be presented to the Ex- 
ecutive Committee for consideration. Before 
this could be accomplished, however, some 
students displayed publicly their dislike for 
the new regulation. 

Student demonstrations against the ruling 
occurred on Sunday and Monday nights, 
October 3 and 4. The Sunday night demon- 
stration was of a rather spontaneous nature 
and was engaged in by 300 to 500 students. 
The student outbursts, in the main, represent- 
ed demonstrations by certain students (and 
it should be remembered that outbursts of 
this nature may occur on college campuses 
with little provocation). In both displays of 
opposition by students, no property damage 
resulted, nor were there any injuries reported. 

In its issue following the demonstrations, 
The Bucknellian devoted about eight full 
columns — about one and one -third pages — 
to the liquor ban. It published one student 
letter of protest against the ban and pointed 
out that the editors of the publication are 
100 per cent behind the sentiment expressed 
in the demonstration, but the lead editorial, 
entitled "Sound and Fury, Accomplishing 
Nothing," expressed this conclusion : "the 
demonstrations defeated their own purpose", 
and this hope : "We hope our fatalistic at- 
titude will not discourage responsible leaders 
in Student Faculty Congress and the In- 
terfraternity Coimcil from working out a 
compromise plan. It should have been their 
problem all along." 

Naturally the ban will have its effect upon 
the fraternity houses, and it has been in- 
teresting to observe that the national officers 
of practically all the fraternities represent- 
ed on the campus, and especially those as- 
sociated with the Interfraternity Conference, 
have given their unqualified endorsement of 
the position taken by the university and in 
practically every instance offered their help 
in enforcing the regulation. 

Actually, national fraternities represented 
on the campus all have drinking restrictions 
in their chapter regulations and at least one 
campus fraternity chapter adopted a rule ban- 

ning intoxicants before the university regu- 
lation was announced. 

The Bucknell University Fathers' Associa- 
tion, meeting on the campus on October 9, 
went on record as unconditionally support- 
ing the university's stand on alcoholic bever- 
ages. The two governing bodies of the stu- 
dents, the Women's Student Government 
Association and the Men's Student Assem- 
bly, expressed to Bucknell University their 
sincere regret "for the detrimental publicity 
resulting from recent student demonstra- 
tions." The senate of WSGA went on to 
say that "in the event of any future dis- 
turbance of this or any other sort, every 
woman student, under our Honor System, 
is responsible for complete understanding 
and compliance with this regulation. It is 
to be understood that this applies to all 
phases of conduct which could defame the 
reputation of Bucknell University." 

A number of organizations and individuals, 
including alumni, on and off the campus, 
lost no time in expressing their approval 
of the edict by telephone calls, telegrams, and 
letters to university officials. According to 
information received at the offices on the 
hill, numerous colleges throughout the coun- 
try have been wrestling with this same sub- 
ject, and in many instances, action similar 
to that taken by Bucknell has been taken 
by other educational institutions. 

The sixteenth annual Dad's Day cele- 
bration was held on the Bucknell campus 
on October 9 and 10. Features of the 
weekend were the Board of Directors of 
the Fathers' Association meeting, a Dad's 
Day Luncheon, the Bucknell-Lehigh foot- 
ball game, and evening entertainment by 
the. Men's and Women's Glee Clubs. 

Speakers at the Dad's Luncheon were 
Dr. William H. Coleman, dean and vice 
president; Dr. Dayton L. Ranck, treasur- 
er and vice president; and Dr. Joseph 
Henderson, acting president of the Uni- 
versity. Mr. George Holton of Pelham, 
New York, president of the Fathers' As- 
sociation presided at the luncheon. 

Saturday afternoon. Dads witnessed the 
Bucknell-Lehigh football game in Me- 
morial Stadium and on Saturday night, 
were entertained by the Glee Clubs in 
Davis Gymnasium. During the evening 
program, a rotating plaque was presented 
to the new president of the Fathers' Asso- 
ciation by Booster Club president, Pat 
Mansfield '55. A plaque was also given 
for the S. Dale Spotts Auditorium in the 
newly renovated Taylor Hall. 

An informal reception forthe Dads fol- 
lowed the evening program in the gym.

MARY McClelland lago '40. 

They Live in the City. 
Friendship Press, N. Y. 

This fascinating story is written about the 
life and action of teen agers wlio live in 
the citj', or who have come recently to its 
industrial suburban developments. It is not 
about dust bowl victims, but comfortable 
Americans who have followed to the cities. 
There is portrayed the drug store gang of 
the new housing development in W'estmont; 
the sophisticated teen agers of the higher 
economic levels of the city nearby ; and the 
Scorpian gang in the slums. We meet Katy, 
recently from a small village, yearning for 
friendship in her new community. There is 
Barrv' who is hospitalized with rheumatic 
fever, whose mother can scarcely make ends 
meet. Barr\- is sullen and an introvert. Joe 
and Nick and their gang make spending 
money in minor thefts, becoming bolder 
with time. They war on a Negro youth 
group. Nick's sister is injured by a trailer 
truck. Jeflt, the Negro boy, is the envy of 
the baseball fans. The exclusive section of 
the citj', which helps maintain social services 
in the slums doesn't care to meet the people 
who live there, or to share too generously 
with them. Mr. Anderson is a very deter- 
mined man and most respectable, and a 
churchman. But then there are some other 
people who must be taken into account — 
Mr. Martin, Dr. Halstead, :Mr. "Mike," The 
Shacklefords, Barbara and Elizabeth, 

The author has woven her stirring story 
around the lives of these people, and shows 
what can be done with the cooperation of the 
churches, community agencies, citizens of 
good-will when leadership is wisely exer- 
cised. The story has come out of real life 
situations and experiences in the vicinity of 
St. Louis. 

The author, Mrs. Mary McClelland Lago 
'40, is now the wife of Dr. Gladwyn Lago 
of the department of electrical engineering 
of the University of Missouri. As a student 
at Bucknell, Mary was an English major with 
much participation in music. Her second 
love was journalism. Upon graduation she 
took a position with the Friendship Press in 
New York, first as secretarial. She then 
began to do some editing and writing for the 
Press. Her articles have also appeared in 
other magazines, such as Mademoiselle. In 
Columbia fMo.) she has been active in or- 
chestra and choir, and in her church, which 
is now Episcopal. Her social concerns have 
brought her in contact with many commu- 
nity enterprises throughout the state. This 
most recent publication of hers expresses her 
ideas on delinquency and what can be done 
for a wholesome community life. A gifted 
writer, she is joined in this book by the tal- 
ents of a remarkably good photographer,

Synqmim Khcc, The Man liehind the Myth. 
tjfxjd. Mead & a,mpany, N. Y., 1954. 

In AuKUst 1942 iJr. Robert T. Oliver first 
met Syngman Rhce through their mutual 
friend. Reverend Edward junkin, formerly 
pa»tor of the Presbyterian Church in I^-wis- 
imrjf. At the time of the meeting Rhcc was 
Prc\idcnf of the Provisional Government of 
Korea and Dr. Oliver w;n Chairman of the 
Speech Department at Bucknell University, 

They met in a small cafeteria on Connccti-

public. Rhee replied, "I am not a writer ; 
why don't you?" Since that initial contact 
Dr. Oliver lias been the outstanding advocate 
of Korea's cause in the United States. In 
1944 he wrote Korea; Forgotten Nation; in 
1950, Uniy War Came to Korea; in 19S1, The 
Truth About Korea; in 1952, Verdict in 
Korea; in 1953, he served as editor for 
Korea, My Country by Yung Tai Pyun; 
and now, Syngman Rhee, The Man Behind 
the Myth. 

The biography of Rhee is a sixty-year his- 
tory of his people from the days prior to 
the Russian-Japanese War to the post-Ko- 
rean W'ar period of 1954. Introduced to 
American democratic ideals through Metho- 
dist missionaries in the Pai Jai Middle 
Scliool, Rhee with a small group attempted 
to bring reform under the Korean Emperor. 
Caught between Russian and Japanese pres- 
sures from abroad, and a domestic reform 
movement, the emperor established a Privy 
Council made up of reform proponents. In 
1S97 Rhee served on this Council as Speaker. 
However, the forthright actions of the Coun- 
cil led to the seven year imprisonment of 
Rhee. Released by a new emperor Rhee en- 
tered a stream of Korean life dominated by 
the Japanese. Unable to give Rhee diplo- 
matic status because of the presence of the 
Japanese the emperor sent him as a student 
to intercede with Theodore Roosevelt under 
the Amity Agreement of 1882 between Korea 
and the United States. This mission was 
unsuccessful for the United States was pro- 
moting friendly relations with Japan. Again, 
at the end of World War I, as a friend of 
President Wilson, Rhee sought to invoke 
the "right of self-determination of peoples," 
with failure as a result. Not until the ter- 
mination of World War II were the Koreans 
to achieve independence as a half-nation, with 
Syngman Rhee as President. The removal 
of Japan from Korea again meant the up- 
surge of Russia to threaten Korea. Today, 
at the end of fourscore years Rhee is creat- 
ing democratic government in Korea where 
laws are made through the process of par- 
liamentary procedure rather than arbitrary

(Co- Author). 

Statistical Analysis in Chemistry and the 

Chemical Industry. 

John Wiley & Sons, Inc. 

Dr. Carl A. Bennett, the head of General 
Electric's Statistics unit in Operations Anal- 
ysis at the Hanford Atomic Products Opera- 
tion, has just been announced as co-autlior 
of a book published recently on applied sta- 
tistics in the chemical field titled Statistical 
Analysis in Chemistry and the Chemical In- 

His co-author is Norman L. Franklin, pro- 
fessor of chemical engineering with the Uni- 
versity of Leeds in Leeds, England. 

Looking well ahead, the National Research 
Council's Committee on Applied Mathemati- 
cal Statistics decided, in 1949, that the great- 
ly accelerating interest in the use of modern 
statistical methods in chemistry was gener- 
ating a need for an adequate book on this 

To write an effective book of this sort it 
was decided that two authors would be re- 
quired — one a mathematical statistician, the 
other a chemist — each with experience in the 
other's field. 

After gaining the .services of the two 
authors listed above, the committee then 
agreed to sponsor the unrlcrtaking with fi- 
nancial sM|>port from the Office of Naval 
Research. It has been published by John 
Wiley aiKJ Sons, Inc. 

The book, in its 724 pages, presents the 
d'-velopmcnt of aspects of applied 
mathematical statistics which will be con- 

tinually useful to chemists and chemical en- 
gineers. It starts from the beginning of the 
subject and, dealing with each topic as com- 
pletely as possible, gives the theoretical back- 
ground and derivation of the methods, to- 
gether with computational procedures.

The Test for Freedom. 

W. W. Norton and Company, N. Y., 1954. 

With the rise and development of "Mc- 
Carthyism" Americans again have become 
conscious of the Bill of Rights. Numerous 
works flow from the press denouncing the 
challenge to or upholding the protection of 
those basic rights. Norman Thomas adds his 
voice to the growing throng who think the 
American people by apathy or indifference 
stand a chance of having them ignored or 
discarded. He resents the fact that liberty 
and security have been impaired by involving 
them so deeply in the politics of McCarthy- 

In the Preface of his book the author says, 
"This book will speak for itself or it will 
not speak at all." His first chapter is devot- 
ed to a defense of his writing the book in the 
first place. For the more mature reader 
Norman Thomas needs to make no apology 
for his interest in the subject, nor does he 
need to explain by relating numerous per- 
sonal experiences his interest in the subject 
of Freedom. Certainly, this reader is con- 
vinced that Mr. Thomas is admirably well 
qualified through experience and action to 
discuss this topic and to give his reasoning 
and conclusions on the test for freedom today. 

Wliile the author does not tell us anything 
new or startling in his book, he does present 
a picture of the challenge to our basic free- 
doms. His analysis is penetrating and clear ; 
his style is simple, yet forceful ; and his 
work makes interesting reading. It will 
clarify the thinking of many people who have 
been flooded with literature on the subject 
accompanied by charges and countercharges 
resulting in almost complete confusion. 

The Jefferson ideal of individual freedom 
is accepted by Thomas as the norm. He 
traces the fight made by Jefferson for his 
principles, and he shows that in practically 
every generation these ideals are challenged, 
as for example, the Alien and Sedition Laws, 
slavery, the Ku Klux Klan, the treatment 
of aliens in World War I and World War 
II, and especially the treatment of the Japa- 
nese-Americans in the 1940's. 

Recognizing the threat of Communism to 
the American Way of Life the author was 
one of the early opponents of the spread 
of the doctrine of Marx. 

Wliile cognizant of the sinister aspects of 
Communism, Norman Thomas is tremen- 
dously concerned about the new challenge 
to American freedoms — McCarthyism. He 
appraises the movement of McCartliyism and 
is firmly convinced that it is larger and more 
important than the man who is its symbol. 
Under McCarthyism he shows the develop- 
ments which have culminated in the accept- 
ance by Americans in the limitation of their 
freedoms : The Smith and McCarran Ads, 
the Congressional investigations with their 
ignoring individual rights, the loyalty and 
.security tests, and McCarthyism at state and 
local levels. In each instance the author 
gives examples of the abuse of authority and 
the tranijiling of individual rights by tlie iicr- 
sons involved. He jioimcd out numerous iii- 
.stances where innocent persons were victim- 
ized tinder the jjretext tluit the persons re- 
sponsible were defending America. 

While the author is not too pessimistic, he 
ends his book with this warning: "To us 
Americans much has been given ; of us much 
is rc(|uired."

HARRISBURG — The Bucknell Alumni 
of Harrisburg met regularly for dinner 
meetings on the first Thursday of each 
month from March. 1953, through May, 
1954, at the Y. M. C. A., Front and North 
Sts., Harrisburg. We had an average of 
35 Alumni attending the Spring meetings. 
Our programs included group discussions 
of a film, THE TOYMAKER, an Easter 
message from Dr. Robert Stephens of the 
Market Square Presbyterian Church, and 
Mr. R. L. Lindsey of the Harrisburg 
School District. 

Our traditional picnic supper for fresh- 
men entering Bucknell from the Harris- 
burg area was held at Reservoir Park on 
Sept. 2, 1954. Of the 68 people present. 
30 were freshmen and their parents. 

We were very happy to have Janet Lehr, 
a junior at Bucknell and Jack Gresham, a 
sophomore, with us as well. Janet and 
Jack discussed the many and varied stu- 
dent activities at Bucknell which ^vas not 
only of value in terms of orientation for 
our freshman guests, but of interest to the 
graduates. We were fortunate in having 
Mr. John F. Zeller '41, professor of politi- 
cal science, with us as our speaker. Mr. 
Zeller interpreted the Bucknell way of life 
from the faculty viewpoint, and shared 
with us his thinking in regard to the use 
a student can make of the opportunity for 
learning. This seemed to us to be a very 
fine beginning for the resumption of our 
regular monthly meetings for the Fall

Alumni Meetings in the Skies 

On two occasions during the past sum- 
mer Bucknellians met in the skies over 
Europe and proceeded to hold impromptu 
Bucknell meetings. 

While flying from Venice to Munich 
during a recent visit to Europe this past 
summer Dr. Edward G. Hartmann '37, 
director of libraries and associate professor 
of history of Suffolk University. Boston, 
found himself seated next to a distin- 
guished gentleman. Subsequent conver- 
sation revealed the distinguished gentle- 
man was also a Bucknell Alumnus, Mr. 
Rush H. Kress '00, also enjoying the 
beauties of Europe. As might be expect- 
ed, Bucknell was high upon the agenda 
of conversation. 

Ambassador and Mrs. Horace A. Hil- 
dreth also met Mr. Kress and his family 
on a London to Istanbul flight. The Hil- 
dreths were en route to Pakistan after 
having spent a month in the LInited States, 
during which time Dr. Hildreth was a 
visitor on the Bucknell campus. 



Football — the 1954 Season 
— to Date 

The fact tliat Bucknell University's 1954 
grid machine received top bilHng by the 
nation's press services as one of the "unde- 
feated major colleges" mid-way in the cam- 
paign is reason to term Coach Harry Law- 
rence's eighth season at the helm of tlie 
Bisons a success. 

Previously, the Bisons were excluded from 
the list of major colleges in the football 
realm but the Thundering Herd caught fire 
and also caught the attention of the coun- 
trj-'s grid authorities with smashing victor- 
ies over Gettvsburg, 29-0 ; !MuWenberg, 33- 
13 ; Lehigh, 48-46 ; Temple, 27-0, and Lafay- 
ette. 7-0. 

In the same stretch, the Orange and Blue 
skjTocketed to the top of Peimsylvania's 
college elevens becoming one of two unde- 
feated squads with five victories and pacing 
the field with the most points. 144 in five 

Also, midwaj- in the campaign, the Bisons 
held claim to the front-running individual 
pointmaker throughout Pennsylvania in Bob 
Ford of CoUingswood, X. J., with a grand 
total of 48 points in the five engagements. 
Ford, who rallied from a severe attack of 
grippe to become Bucknell 's top ground 
gainer, had his biggest day when he carried 
66 times against Lehigh for a total gain of 
312 yards. 

And then comes the big question in the 
minds of Bucknellians as well as football 
followers throughout the country. "Is this 
the same eleven that eked out a lone victory 
while losing eight in 1953?" 

Coach Lawrence claims, "Essentially the 
same ball club except for some changes in 
position." adding that, "it's a matter of 
youth and experience." 

Alumni will recall that Coach Lawrence 
b>-passed his seniors in the waning weeks 
of the 1953 season to turn loose his juniors 
and sophomores "for experience." His plan- 
ning brought early dividends in 1954 and 
a lot of colorful, victorious football games 

for Bucknell. 


Basketball Prospects Do 
Look Brighter 

Writing under the above heading in last 
December's ALUMNUS we predicted that 
the season would be better than the previous 
one, when three games resulted in victories. 
The season wound up with four victories in 
the winning column, but when the fighting 
spirit of the Club is considered and when 
it is remembered that one of the wins was 
over Colgate and further that the team 
held nationally ranked Penn State to a six 
IK)int margin, it is realized that the squad 
gave all it had throughout the season. 

So wc say "Basketball prospects do look 
brighter." In the first place four stalwart 
lettcrmen arc returning. They are Dick 
Bradway '55 and Herb Cox '55, Pittsburgh ; 
Steve Smith '55, I'crkasie ; Rick Johnson '55, 
Plainfield, New Jersey. From the frosh 
team of last year, which finished with a rec- 
ord of IS win.s and only 2 losses will be the 
following .vjphomores : Martin Tanncnhaum, 
Markcn.sack, N. J.; Joe Haccelli, Niagara 
J-'alli, N. v.; John Bcatty, Charlcroi ; Norm 
Vofirhcei, Mcadvillc; and Mike Corrigan, 

With a new freshman squad that looks 
much Ix-ttcr than average Bucknellians would 
do well to plan to see lyith Cliili.s in action 
on the road. A fine schedule of away games 
ha.s iK-cn arranged and rifficers of Alumni 
Clubs arc urged to organize grf/up dinners 
ami attendance when the Basketliall teams 
visit their cfrtnmunitics,

Fall Enrollment 

The enrollment for the first semester of 
1954-1955 is more than three per cent 
better than for 1953-1954, or a grand total 
of about 1930 students. The increase in 
the freshman class is nearly five per cent. 

New Admissions Policy for 1955 and Later 
Effective with the class entering in Sep- 
tember, 1955. candidates will be required 
to present the full day of testing under 
the College Entrance Examination Board, 
preferably the March, 1955, series, al- 
though results from earlier series will be 

Harry Johnson '22 Promoted 
to Brigadier General 


Word comes from Bad Kreuznach, Ger- 
many that Harry W. Johnson '22, assis- 
tant commander tor the Second Armored 
Division in Germany, recently was pro- 
moled to the rank of brigadier general. 
At his present duty station since April, 

considered. The first, and major, selection 
of candidates will be made late in April 
or early in May, 1955. 

The support of alumni in presenting 
Bucknell University to prospective stu- 
dents is appreciated, and more eft'orts to 
attract well-qualified students who do not 
need financial aid is especially needed. In 
several of the alumni clubs, more interest 
is being manifested in the solicitation of 

Itinerary of Admission Staff 

Fitz R. Walling, Admissions Counselor, 
will be in the Boston area the week of 
November 1, Long Island week of Novem- 
ber 8, and lower New York state the 
week of November 15. Mr. Faint will be 
in the New York area the week of No- 
vember 1, and in Pennsj'lvania towns the 
weeks of November 8 and 15. 

Enrollment Prospects for 1955 and Later 

More young people plan to attend col- 
lege each year, and in just a few years 
the higher birth rate will greatly increase 
the college-bound group. This should 
enable us to select better qualified stu- 
dents. In 1955, it is anticipated greater 
interest will be possible for men because 
of the erection of a new residence hall, 
and for science students because of the 
renovation of Taylor Hall and the comple- 
tion of the F. W. Olin Science Building. 


The registrar is more than happy to 
send literature to alumni who are interest- 
ed in helping to inform prospective stu- 
dents of our facilities. 

he was previously director of the com- 
mand and staiif department of the Armored 
School at Fort Knox, Ky. 

Graduated from the U. S. Military 
Academy in 1926, General Johnson par- 
ticipated in the Normandy landing during 
World War II. His decorations include 
the Silver Star, Legion of Merit, Bronze 
Star with three Oak Leaf Clusters, and 
the Belgian Croix de Guerre with one 
Oak Leaf Cluster. 

General Johnson is a member of one 
of Bucknell's larger alumni families. His 
sister Mary E., wife of Cameron Bicbcr, 
graduated in '28 and his three Buckncl- 
lian brothers include: Gyrus L. '22, George 
W. '31, and James R. '26. 

General and Mrs. Johnson can be

Herbert F. Harris '96 Dies 

Herbert Frederick Harris '96, the eld- 
est son of John Howard Harris, president 
of Bucknell from 1889 to 1919, died sud- 
denly at his home in Scranton on Septem- 
ber 10. He was 78 and had been in ill 
health for several years. 

Graduated from Bucknell Academy, in 
1892, he received his bachelor's degree 
from the University in 1896 and his mas- 
ter's degree in 1897. After serving in 
the Spanish-American War, he graduated 
from the George Washington University 
Law School. Associated with the law 
firm of O'Malley, Hill, Harris and Harris 
in Scranton, he retired several years ago 
because of ill health. 

Four of the Harris brothers have been 
practicing attorneys at the same time and 
three of them were members of the 
Lackawanna Bar Association. Attorney 
Herbert F. Harris' work as a lawyer 
was largely on the civil side. As council 
for the Pennsylvania Coal Company, Mr. 
Harris occupied a place of unique promi- 
nence in his field. In a special way he 
had familiarized himself with laws refer- 
ring to mining and not a few members 
of the Bar looked upon him as an authority 
in such matters. He was a friendly, quiet 
man and was held in high regard by his 
associates in the law, as well as by all 
privileged to know him. He will be sadly 
missed by his family and his large circle 
of friends. 

Surviving Mr. Harris are his wife, the 
former Mable Sharpless of Philadelphia; a 
sister, Dr. Mary B. Harris '94, Lewisburg; 
and four brothers: Reese H. '03, Scranton; 
Dr. Coleman J. '12, Charleston, West 
Virginia; James P. '12, Wilkes-Barre; and 
Stanley N. '18, Pittsburgh. 

Decker '27 Lost in Air Crash 

Dr. Ernest B. Decker '27 and his wife 
were aboard a Royal Dutch KLM airliner 
that crashed into the North Sea off the 
Dutch coast on August 23. Enroute from 
New York to Amsterdam, the plane was 
only ten minutes from its goal when the 
disaster occurred. Nothing has been 
heard since. Twelve of the twenty-nine 
passengers were Americans. The plane's 
crew numbered nine. 

Dr. and Mrs. Decker had resided in 
Daytona Beach, Fla., where he was a 
practicing eye, ear, nose, and throat spe- 
cialist. The couple had no children. 

Roop '45 to Memphis 

Nagro '17 Awarded Degree 

Constantino F. Nagro '17 was awarded 
the degree of Doctor of Music Education 
from Chicago Musical College last June. 
He came to Bucknell in 1915 as a protege 
of Dr. Paul G. Stolz, former head of the 
department of music. He was awarded 
a teacher's diploma in Violin and Theory 
in 1917 and continued as a post-graduate 
student until 1919, leaving Bucknell to 
teach music at Albright College, Reading. 
He returned to the campus for two years 
in 1946 as an assistant professor of music. 

Since leaving Bucknell, Dr. Nagro was 
manager of the Violin Department of the 
Rudolph Wurlitzer Company in Chicago 
until his recent appointment to the posi- 
tion of director of music in the Roselle 
(Illinois) schools. 

Now residing in Roselle, the Nagros 
have a daughter Carolyn Jane (now Mrs. 
Robert E. Lowum) who graduated from 
Bucknell in 1943. 


Receives Bronze Star 

Colonel C. U. Knaub awarding Bronze Star to Major Raymond O. Manker '40 

Major Raymond O. Manker '40 was awarded last August the Bronze Star for 
his fine work from July 28, 1953 to June 30, 1954 when he was personnel officer and 
assistant adjutant general of the Prisoner of War Command headquarters and later, a 
member of the personnel section of the Korean Communications Zone headquarters. 

Ray has been connected with the U. S. Army for thirteen of the fourteen years 
since his graduation. He hopes to make the army his career. 

Expected home in November, Ray lives with his wife and three children at 1 
Curry Lane, Brookside Park, Newark, Delaware. 



Dan Roop, a graduate of civil engineer- 
ing in 1945, has accepted a position as Ad- 
ministrative Engineer of the Baptist Me- 
morial Hospital, Memphis, Tennessee, be- 
ginning January 1, 1955. The Baptist Me- 
morial Hospital is the largest private in- 
stitution of its kind in the South. At the 
close of its present $6,000,000 expansion 
program the bed capacity will be 1,000. 
In his new position Mr. Roop will be re- 
sponsible for the complete physical plant 
through executive planning, delegation, 
supervision and inspection, and will also 
serve on the School of Nursing faculty. 

After Navy service in World War II, 
Dan became plant engineer at the New 
England Medical Center in Boston and in 
1952 was appointed as chief engineer at 
the Geisinger Memorial Hospital in Dan- 

A member of Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity, 
he has always been an active and interested 
worker in Alumni affairs — serving as an 
officer of the Boston Alumni Club. More 
recently he served a 3 j'ear term as a 
member of the Board of Directors of the 
General Alumni Association, and in 1953 
was elected a vice president of the Alumni 

Although somewhat farther removed 
from the campus in his new assignment, 
we are sure that Dan and his wife, the 
former Dorothy Danenhower '46, and 
their family will promote Bucknell active- 
ly in Memphis. Let's have an early meet- 
ing of the Bucknell Alumni Club of Mem- 
phis, Dan. 

It Happened Here 

Thirty Years Ago — 1924 

Cheering undergraduates, although con- 
tributing $50,000 toward our stadium, had 
to occupy the seats extending from the 
twenty yard line. Well, it looks as though 
we at Bucknell have broken a one-time 
precedent on the 300 acres.

The plan for the Bucknell Alumni Fund is simple. Alumni dues and 
magazine subscriptions hove been discontinued. Every alumnus and friend 
of Bucknell is invited to contribute annually to the University for current 
operations. Each person contributing, no matter what the amount, will be 
listed as a donor in THE BUCKNELL ALUMNUS. 

The amount contributed to the Bucknell Alumni Fund clone this past 
year equals the return on more than $700,000 of invested endowment. 
By their increasing support of the Bucknell Alumni Fund, alumni and friends 
con moke it more and more a substantial "living endowment."

Selinsgrove, Pa. 
Of all the modem allergies 
I finally found my ovm. 
"lis not the wild-eyed daisy 
Nor any plant that's grown: 
'Tis not a thing thrust on me: 
Or some other curious quirk. 
"Tis a plain old-fashioned something 
That prosaic men call work. 

— John I. Woodruff. 

Dr. John I. Woodruff was recently 
given recognition by the Pennsylvania 
German Folklore Society for being the 
originator of the "Fersommlinge" or 
Pennsylvania German gatherings, the

At the 25th anniversary dinner of the 
Camden Countj^ Branch of the Ameri- 
can Association of University Women 
Ln Camden, N. J. in June, it was an- 
nounced that their 1955 international 
study grant would be named in honor 
of Dr. Mabel Grier Lesher, a charter 
member, in recognition of her pioneer 
work in social hygiene education for 
family hving in the Camden pubhc 
schools and her later extension of the 
program to state and national scope. 

Her 1901 classmates and friends will 
be interested to learn that her activi- 
ties in the Camden Branch, together 
with other B. U. members, materially 
aided in gaining recognition of Buck- 
nell's qualifications and subsequent en- 
dorsement by the National Board in 
Washington for organization of the Sus- 
quehanna Valley Branch in Lewisburg. 

Dr. Frank Anderson recently sent his 
regards; says he's passed his 78th birth- 
day and is in good health. He's been 
acting as interim pastor of the Mt. Ver- 
non Baptist Church, Mt. Vernon, Ark. 

John S. Stephens made a plane trip 
east and while he didn't visit the cam- 
pus, he was able to visit with his sisters, 
Mrs. Gertrude Stephens Downs '99, Mrs. 
Ruth Stephens Porter '05. While in Flor- 
ida he also visited Dr. J. Earle Edwards 
'10 who had been pastor at St. John's 
Church in Palo Alto, Calif., before re- 
tiring to Florida.

is hoped all have had, please send in

news of your activities, vacation expe- 
riences, families, etc. 

Non-letter writing seems to have 
been the rule this summer; your re- 
porter falls into that category along 
with other members of the class. Shall 
we all try to remedy this situation in 
the following months, and give a little 
news of ourselves to interested readers. 

Regretfully, we report the death of 
Joseph E. Glaspey in April. He had not 
been able to attend our reunion last 
year because of illness. Mr. Glaspey, 
of Slippery Rock, is survived by his

ren C. Evans '34 are all Bucknellians. 

Billy Kieffer, after attending the class 
reunion at Lafayette, came on to Lew- 
isburg bringing his good wife and at- 
tended commencement exercises. 

Louis W. Robey was awarded the 
honorary degree of Doctor of Laws by 
Alderson-Broaddus College, Phillip, W. 
Va. in May, in recognition of his out- 
standing service to education. Dr. Ro- 
bey, a vice president and director of 
Marts and Lundy, Inc. has, since April 
1, been in charge of the new Phila- 
delphia office of that firm. This new 
honor is one of a long record of salu- 
tations Dr. Robey has earned in rec- 
ognition of his outstanding service for 
American Baptists. He served as a 
Trustee of Bucknell University from 
1920 to 1930. 

We are happy to report that Dave 
Robinson has safely arrived at his home

CLASS OF 1907

Colgate Univ., Hamilton, N. Y. 

Elkanah Hulley spent last winter in 
Florida rebuilding the Stetson Univer- 
sity Law School. It will be remem- 
bered that Elkanah has a long-time 
family connection with Stetson. His 
uncle, Lincoln Hulley, who had been 
one of the most popular professors at 
Bucknell, left Lewisburg just as we 
entered college to become president of 

Stetson, where he did a remarkable 
job of iDuilding the university. So nat- 
urally Elkanah, who is a Stetson trus- 
tee, has to divide his loyalty between 
the two universities. 

All of us will feel the deepest sym- 
pathy for classmate Bill Kelly and Mrs. 
Kelly (Sara Meyer '09) in the shocking 
death of their daughter in an auto ac- 
cident in the late spring.

chemistry specialization, he was one of
