THE BUCKNELL ALUMNUS is published in January, March, May, September, and 
November by BUCKNELL UNIVERSITY'. Entered as second-class matter December 
30. 1930, at the post office at Lewisburg, Pa., under the Act, of August 24, 1912. 


As Expected, of Course, 
A Record Attendance Helped 
To Make Alumni Day, 
June 7, the Best Ever 

President, General Alumni Association 

Alumni Trustee 


WITH over a thousand alumni and 
friends at the All-Alumni Lunch- 
eon, new attendance records were set 
for the reunion weekend. The colorful 
program included twelve Class Re- 
unions, the traditional Alumni Parade 
and All-Alumni Luncheon, and the 
Alumni Jamboree. 

Laying of the cornerstone for Cole- 
man Hall, the University's largest 
classroom building now under con- 
struction, was a feature of the weekend. 
President Merle M. Odgers, who pre- 
sided at the cornerstone ceremony, 
pointed out that as the building nears 
completion, it becomes more and more 
evident that we must press on to the 
next step in the creation of the new 
quadrangle by the construction of the 
additional wing needed to complete 
the Vaughan Literature Building. 


T. Cortlandt Williams, Sr. '20, 
Greenwich, Conn., was nominated for 
election as an Alumni Trustee on the 
Board of Trustees of Bucknell Univer- 
sity for a term of five years. 

Officers of the General Alumni As- 
sociation were elected for the ensuing 
year. Charles F. Fox, Jr., M.D. '3L 
of Vandergrift was named president 
to succeed Wilmer D. Greulich '34, of 
Wynnewood who has served with dis- 
tinction for the past two years. Other 
officers elected included : first vice 
president, Robert W. Dill '27, Ply- 
mouth Meeting ; and second vice presi- 
dent, Mrs. Clyde P. Bailey (Dorothy 
Lemon '29,) Pittsburgh. 


Five new members of the Board of 
Directors of the General Alumni Asso- 
ciation were elected by the 96 delegates 
from 31 clubs. Chosen for five-year 
terms were Miss Elinor Childs '52, 
Morristown, N. J. ; Robert H. Taylor 
'48, Bala-Cynwyd ; and Dr. Eugene P. 
Bertin '17, Muncy. Chosen for one- 
year terms were Charles T. Farrow 
'26, Westfield, N. J., and Allen F. 
Jones '25, Harrisburg. 


Mrs. Joseph D. Kelly (Emily De- 
vine '21,) of New York was the re- 
cipient of the Alumni Award of the 
Bucknell Chair and Citation for Out- 
standing Service, Unselfish Interest, 
and Demonstrated Loyalty to the Uni- 
versity and to the General Alumni As- 
sociation. The Alumni Medallion and 
Certificate for Meritorious Achieve- 
ment in One's Chosen Profession was 
awarded to Dr. Harry R. Warfel '20, 
Professor of English at the University 
of Florida, while the Alumni Medal- 
lion and Certificate for Contributions 
and Service to Fellowmen went to Dr. 
Mabel Grier Lesher '01, Lewisburg, a 
retired medical missionary. 

Committee appointments included 
announcement of the membership of 
the Committee for Selection of Alumni 
Trustee Candidates, as follows : Dr. 
Lester E. Lighton '20, chairman ; Wil- 
liam P. Boger, M.D. '34; Mrs. Paul 
M. Showalter '33; Mrs. Charles E. 
Copeland '22 ; J. Norman Davies, Esq. 
'26; Robert W. Dill '27; Dr. Emma 
Dillon '15; Clyde P. Bailey, Esq. '29; 
and Thomas W. Speck '37. 

Members of the Alumni Awards 
Committee are Harry O. Dayhoft' '23, 
chairman; E. W. Pangburn, M.D. '15; 
Arthur R. Yon '17; Mrs. Erie M. 
Topham '17; T. Cortlandt Williams, 
Sr. '20 ; the Rev. Anthony F. Vasquez 
'37 ; and the three new alumni award 
winners announced at the luncheon. 
Robert W. Dill was appointed for a 
one-year term to represent the Gen- 
eral Alumni Association on the Ath- 
letic Advisory Committee. 


Alumni Day observance began with 
breakfast Saturday morning when 
more than 120 members and guests 
of the Bison Club, an organization of 
alumni interested in the athletic pro- 
gram of the University, enjoyed a 
breakfast at the Lewisburg Club un- 
der the direction of President Jay P. 
Mathias '35. Speakers included Dr. 
Karl D. Hartzell, Dean of the Uni- 
versity ; Andrew R. Mathieson '20, 
Pittsburgh, Chairman of the Trustee 
Committee on Athletics ; Robert H. 
Odell, new varsity football coach, and 
other members of the coaching staft'. 
The club re-elected three members to 
the Athletic Advisory Committee : 
Anthony Wilsbach '26, Harrisburg: 
Thomas J. Mangan '21, Milton ; and 
Arthur R. Yon '17, Atlantic City, N. J. 

The full day of activities wound up 
with an alumni jamboree, dance and 
student entertainment program in 
Davis Gj'mnasium and also included a 
performance of the Cap and Daggar 
production, "Thieves' Carnival."

By Dr. Wesley N. Haines 
Director of Development 

TO say that American higher education is in an era of 
transition is to repeat something which has been said 
man)^ times since the nation began. In a country of growth, 
of widely var3-ing climate and topography, of varying 
racial and cultural strains, it is inevitable that change 
should be nearly continuous. 

Transitions have varied in kind, however, and it is 
fair to believe that the present educational crisis has char- 
acteristics not encountered before. One is that alterations 
must be made with great speed ; our need for scientists, 
mathematicians, and engineers, for example, was revealed 
full grown almost over night. As far as our independent 
colleges and universities are concerned, the burden placed 
on them has been equally sudden. On the horizon looms 
the real wave of the future — the huge numbers of boys 
and girls approaching college age, and the necessary up- 
grading of quality in education. No college or university 
can wait until its share of the horde is on its doorsteps, or 
until obsolescence sets in. It must look ahead and develop 
some sort of plan. This fact highlights the work of the 
Development Office as nothing else has done. 

In moments of doubt American educators may wish 
that there were an all-powerful ^Ministry of Education 
which would tell each educational institution what its 
niche is to be, and then allocate funds from an inexhausti- 
ble cash box which would finance the details of that par- 
ticular niche. Nothing like this will happen as long as our 
country retains its basic character. Each college and uni- 
versit}' must calculate what its natural place will be in this 
enlarged future and go about assembling the facilities, the 
men, and the funds needed to service its particular plans. 

Bucknell is fortunate in that recent large gifts have 
provided basic facilities which undergird the future pro- 
gram. The Ellen Clarke Bertrand Library, Swartz Dorm- 
itory and Houghton Dining Hall facility for freshman 
men, the F. W. Olin Science Building and Coleman Hall 

Coleman Hall in August as it nears December 13, 1958 dedication date 

for the liberal arts, the last two gifts from Olin Founda- 
tion, Inc., all reined up important lacks and are of such 
a character as to serve adequately for decades to come. 
Recent additions to endowment, spurred by the Kress 
Foundation matching pledge, also aflford a beginning of 
basic support for the Bucknell of the Future. 

But it is not to be expected that all of the needs of 
an American college or university will be met by a few 
large gifts made over a short period of time. Bucknell 
must energetically seek further gifts, large and small. In 
this connection a statement by the Chairman of one of 
Bucknell's larger departments of instruction is pertinent. 
In relation to hiring young teachers, he said, "I find myself 
bidding in a market which is increasingly competitive." 

Similarly, the Development Office of a college or uni- 
versity shops for gifts, and like the department chairman, 
finds the market increasingly competitive. The develop- 
ment offices ever^-where must prepare their campaigns, 
whether short-term or long-term with increasing care and 
prosecute them with renewed energ}-. 

It is in this competitive market that Bucknell seeks 
gifts. In so doing it realizes that prospective donors ask 
questions and that these questions must be answered, 
even though the person putting the query is a member of 
the University family, such as an alumnus or a close 

The questions fall under two general heads: 

1. Why does Bucknell need funds? For what speci- 
fic purposes are the)- sought? 

2. Why does Bucknell deserve to get the funds it asks 

Under the first head, the more explicit the University 
can be, the better. The beggar who asks for a dime for a 
cup of coftee (it used to be a nickel) has better luck than 
the beggar who asks just for the dime. Alost givers who 
make large donations operate on business principles ; they 
seek facts and figures, exact estimates of costs, 
and the probable benefits to be derived from 
money expended. Even the most devoted alumnus 
likes to visualize the use to which his contribution 
is being put. "Two Decades of Decision," pub- 
lished in 1956, laid out a ten-year pattern of 
general development. Bucknell is now further 
clarifving its needs and a more detailed statement 
of them will shortly be forthcoming. 

With respect to the second question as to wh\- 
Bucknell deser\-es support, the necessity for clear 
answers is just as compelling. In a sense, the 
pleader for Bucknell must make a "case" just as 
the lawyer pleading for a client must make a 
"case." Into the making of the Bucknell case go 
a variety of elements: standing in the academic

and with Alfred North Whitehead, 

"Under modern conditions, the 

race which does not value 

trained intelligence is doomed." 

By Dr. Karl D. Hartzell 
Dean of the University 

IN the spring of 1956, Bucknell University decided to 
examine the three main facets of its educational pro- 
gram, — its curriculum, its faculty, and its student body. 
This summer, after almost two years of work on the part 
of faculty, students and administration, a group of eight 
coordinators are pulling together the conclusions of twenty 
committee reports into what it is hoped will be a blueprint 
for the University future as an educational institution of 
the first rank. 

Although it is too early to anticipate the findings of the 
final report which will be submitted first to the Executive 
Committee of the Bucknell Study and then to the faculty 
as a whole, a number of what are expected to be its major 
emphases are set forth here for the benefit of interested 

The number of degree offerings will be reduced in an 
effort to emphasize common elements in the curriculum 
and differentiate by degree labels only where major dis- 
tinctions are to be drawn. A four-divisional structure 
seems likely with the present departments allocated under 
each division according to the traditional subdivisions of 
knowledge — humanities, social sciences, sciences and en- 
gineering. The A.B. degree, although not the only one 
to be offered, will remain the fundamental liberal de- 
gree with major programs offered in all departments 
but engineering. 

The study has focused heavily upon the best means 
of opening the mind of the student to the full range of 
human thought and endeavor, so that he may become 
aware of the possibilities of his own participation in 
the ongoing of the human race. Students are being- 
thought of broadly as "potential unlimited" rather 
than narrowly as "performers of a specific social func- 
tion." Their education is regarded as a matter of orien- 
tation and self-development, both of which are pri- 
marily functions of the intelligence. The choice of a 
career and the way in which the individual student will 
adjust to, and change, his environment depend upon 
the breadth and depth of his orientation and the com- 
pleteness of his development. 

Instead of thinking solely in quantitatively hourly 
terms within the framework of the divisional structure, 
the coordinators are working on the fundamental aims 
of a liberal education which they hope to translate into 
the curriculum. The distribution and concentration re- 
quirements, as well as the free electives of this curriculum, 
would place the emphasis upon our cultural heritage, the 
contemporary world in which we live, ourselves as repre- 
sentatives of that strange race of creatures called humans, 
a scale or standard of ethical, religious and aesthetic 
values, and finally those many personal abilities with- 
out which we cannot speak, write, or think eff'ectively. 

Naturally the quality of any product depends upon the 
character of the raw material. The Bucknell Study is giv- 



ing considerable atten- 
tion to the University's 
admissions program. 
Measures will be sug- 
gested for accelerating 
the upward trend in 
the quality of the en- 
tering classes. Special 
attention is planned 
for superior students 
beginning with the 
freshman year and 
eventuating in an hon- 
ors program in the 
junior and senior 

One type of course 
by which students can 

be helped to integrate the knowledge they acquire in the 
classroom and to exercise their powers of constructive 
thought is the "problems" or "issues" course. Attention 
is being given to a variety of such courses in the senior 
year which will emphasize some of the major problems 
facing the human race today. The total result of a four 
year education at Bucknell will be checked in the senior 
year through the administration of the Graduate Record 

The coordinators of the Bucknell Study are also giv- 
ing thought this summer to recommendations that greater 
responsibility for learning be placed upon the individual 
student. Independent study, group discussion, and re- 
search will be encouraged, and greater freedom may be 
allowed the abler students in the use of their time. In- 
creased efficiency in the use of faculty time and other 
teaching resources is likewise of major concern. It is 
hoped that further study of this problem will yield better 
teaching, and at the same time an appreciable reduction in 
the number of hours the teacher spends in the classroom. 

Committees of the study have developed plans for 
closer coordination of student social activities with the 
principal educational goals of the institution. The co- 
ordinators are giving these careful consideration. It is 
recognized that students receive many of their attitudes 
and beliefs from each other, and that care must be exer- 
cised in screening candidates for admission to avoid ad- 
mitting those whose values are fundamentally antagonis- 
tic to those of the University. 

The interests and needs of the faculty are of paramount 
importance. In this area the University's policies on re- 
tirement annuities, health insurance, sabbatical leaves, and 
leaves of absence for doctoral study with one-half pay are 
already of a distinctly liberal character. Continuing em-

hum 'ij, Mrs. Erie M. Topham (C. Ray Speare ' ij) and 
Dr. George A. Irland ' i^. 

Alumni Azvard nominees for Jp5p zvill be selected by 
the award committee on October 2^. 1958. Suggestions of 
persons to he considered for nomination must be submitted 
by October i§, ipj8 to the Alumni Office. A suggestion

"The Bucknell University Alumni Award for Dis- 
tinguished Service to Bucknell University and The Gen- 
eral Alumni Association for 1958 is awarded to an alumna 
who has served her Alma Mater, the Alumni Association 
and her sorority in nearly every office it is possible for an 
alumna to serve. Her teaching career, which began with 
an assistantship at Bucknell immediately after graduation, 
has led her in progressive steps to become guidance coun- 
cilor of a large New York high school where she planned 
and introduced accelerated courses to enable veterans to 
complete their high school work in a mininuim of time. 

"Considering her long list of undergraduate activities, 
it was only natural that she would become an active and 
loyal worker in The General Alumni Association and she 
has filled at one time or another every office in both local 
club and national organizations, serving as president of 
The General Alumni Association in 1953-54. On behalf 
of Phi Mu sorority she has traveled from coast to coast 
as national scholorship director. 

"It is a real honor to now award this certificate and 
the Bucknell Alumni Chair to ]\Irs. Emily Devine Kelly 
of the Class of 1921 for her pre-eminent service to the 
Universitv and The General Alumni Association." 

Bucknell Looks At Itself

world, history, distinguished alumni, facult}^ concern for 
the individual, religious emphasis, physical facilities, social 
life, athletics, etc. The "statement of the case" whether 
written or verbal must cover all important points. The 
Bucknell Study now being carried on is an important 
feature because it shows that the Universitj' is examining 
with great thoroughness its educational program and is 
alert to possible revisions best suited to the changed world 
in which we now live. 

r)ne of the keys to successful fund raising is, therefore, 
clarification. Bucknell is preparing to say why it needs 
funds and why it deserves to receive them. Friends, actual 
and potential, will know what the University has done, 
what it plans to do, and what it must have to serve excel- 
lently its people, our country and the world. 

To assist in this process of clarification the Trustees of 
the University have retained the John Price Jones Com- 
pany, consultants in institutional public relations and 

development, to make a survey of opinion among the 
various Bucknell "publics." Some alumni have already 
received a questionnaire sent out by the Jones Company 
to a random sampling of 1,000 alumni. Although anony- 
mous, the survey asks for factual information about the 
person receiving it, and solicits his opinion on matters 
bearing upon University planning. Certainly, there is 
no group better entitled than the alumni to furnish 
help and counsel as the Universitj- travels through this 
])resent "era of transition" into a future wliich in spite 
of all world alarms is bright with hope.

phasis will be placed on the raising of salaries in order to 
attract and hold an outstanding faculty. 

Upon completion of their work, the coordinators will 
present a final report for consideration of the faculty in 
the fall. The report will plow new ground in some areas ; 
in others it will retain and emphasize what is already good. 
It should be neither radical, nor reactionary, but fresh 
enough to be interesting and fundamentally sound.

"The Bucknell Universit}' Alumni Award for Recog- 
nized Contributions and Service to Fellowmen for 1958 
is awarded to an alumna who has served a lifetime in medi- 
cal missionary activities, educational pursuits and social 
hygiene education. The daughter of a distinguished pro- 
fessor of Latin at Bucknell University, she was graduated 
m 1901 suinma cum laiide. After graduation from Johns 
Hopkins Medical School and several years of private 
practice, she sailed with her husband, also a Bucknell doc- 
tor, for South China in 1910. After 17 years of medical 
missionary work under the American Baptist Foreign 
Missionary Society, they returned to America and set- 
tled in Camden, N. J., where our recipient became a lead- 
er in social hygience education and served with distinc- 
tion as a teacher and lecturer in a number of American 
universities and communities. Upon the death of her 
husband in 1951, Lewisburg became the home of our 
award winner. 

"It is with a great deal of pleasure that we award this 
medallion and certificate to Dr. Mabel Grier Lesher of 
the Class of 1901 for her outstanding and recognized con- 
tributions and service to fellowmen through medicine and 
public welfare." 


"The Bucknell University Alumni Award in Recog- 
nition of Meritorious Achievement in One's Chosen Field 
of Endeavor for 1958 is awarded to an alumnus who has 
built a distinguished career as teacher, lecturer, author, 
editor and publisher. Graduating ciuu laude in 1920 and 
earning a master's degree at Columbia University and a 
doctorate at Yale, he has served his Alma Mater as a 
faculty -member for 14 years and has served his General 
Alumni Association as Alumni Secretary and Editor of 
TJie Bucknell Monthly. His service as a teacher of Eng- 
lish has led him to the highest posts in the associations 
concerned with the teaching of English. His interest in 
literature, particularly in the biographical field, naturally 
led him into the writing of a number of outstanding books 
and to lecturing throughout the United States and in 
Europe. Although still teaching at the Universit)' of 
Florida, he eagerly pursues his hobby of editing and pub- 
lishing, providing leadership to the organization of schol- 
ars' facsimilies and reprints which issues limited editions 
of rare books of interest to scholars. 

"In the name of The General Alumni Association of 
Bucknell University I now award this medallion and cer- 
tificate to Dr. Harry Redcay Warfel of the Class of 1920

To Add Spice to the 

Coming Autumn Weekends the 

Bisons From Bucknell Hope 

To Card a Few Upsets 



AFTER five months on the Bucknell 
campus, my earliest impressions of 
the college, its students, faculty and 
administrative staff have more than 
been confirmed. 

The friendliness and the wonderful 
spirit of cooperation which seem to 
prevail here are sure to make my job 
as pleasant as that of any head foot- 
ball coach can be. 

Naturally, we want to win some 
football games just as badly as you 
want us to, and I want to go on record 
as pledging myself to make every ef- 
fort to develop a system of well-or- 
ganized football under a program that 
will be in line with the policies and 
philosophy of this University. Our 
coaching staff will do its utmost to 
field a team which will be well drilled, 
conditioned and a credit in every re- 
spect to Bucknell. 

I had my first look at the 1958 pros- 
pects this spring and found the morale 
and attitude of the squad very gratify- 
ing. Granted, morale and attitude do 
not alone win football games, neverthe- 
less they can carry any team a long way 
toward success on the gridiron. I 
realize that it is normal for a football 
squad to respond enthusiastically to a 
new system and a new coach, and it 
will be our job to maintain this spirit 
and mold a team that will believe in 
itself and its ability to get the job done. 

There is no question that we will be 
outmanned in many, if not most, of our 
games this season, but we will not be 
outfought or out-hustled. A thorough 
and rigid physical conditioning pro- 
gram should enable us to compete with 
the best of our opponents. We will 
have our boys in fine physical shape, so 
they will be able to finish each contest 
with the same maximum effort as at 
the moment of the opening kickoff". 

By Bob Odell, Head Football Coach 

Optimism must be tempered by the 
fact that we have a very small and 
limited number of sophomores from 
last year's freshman team, and we will 
be employing new oft'ensive and de- 
fensive systems. We have 14 return- 
ing lettermen, five of whom are seniors, 
so it becomes apparent that the junior 
class holds the key to our success. 

We will operate from the "T" for- 
mation with the emphasis on the 
"belly" series of off'ensive patterns. 
Our attack will be a composite of sev- 
eral types that have been used success- 
fully by various college teams through- 
out the nation. Our assignments and 
techniques are not complicated. We 
have a limited number of plays, but 
we feel that we have a series of plays 
that will take care of any defense our 
opponents will use. Basically, it is a 
ball-control offense, but we will go for 
the long gainer in certain situations. 
We will use simple variations to create 
defensive problems for our opponents 
from game to game, such as an un- 
balanced line, split ends, flankers, and 
possibly a shift. Our most important 
objective will be to keep our offense 
simple, so the players will have a thor- 
ough understanding of what they are 
trying to do. We shall strive to play 
interesting football with a good mix- 
ture of runs and passes. 

We have been fortunate in purchas- 
ing new uniforms for the coming sea- 
son. We have ordered the best in 
protective equipment, and the game 
uniform itself will have a definite "new 
look." We will wear navy blue hel- 
mets, blue jerseys, white pants and 
blue socks. We may not be the best 
team in the nation, but we will be 
among the best dressed. 

I should like to turn for a moment 
to our freshman class, for here lies the 

key to our future. On paper, our frosh 
look pretty good, though only time will 
- reveal their true football ability. They 
are all good students and should do a 
top flight job in the classroom. We 
will have representatives from many 
good football areas in Pennsylvania. 
From WPIAL in western Pennsylva- 
nia, we will have boys from such places 
as Aliquippa, Monaca, North Brad- 
dock, Shaler and Wilkensburg. We 
have several boys from the Philadel- 
phia area and representatives from 
Johnstown, Lancaster, Williamsport, 
West Pittston and Saxton. From out 
of state, we have boys from Buffalo, 
N. Y. ; Baltimore, Md. ; Akron, O. ; 
and Long Island. I hope that in the 
future we can have more boys from the 
local area, for I think we are in the 
center of an excellent football area, and 
we intend to get our share of the area 
talent. I am certain that we will at- 
tract the type of student athlete who 
will be a credit to Bucknell in the 
classroom as well as on the football 
field. We have an outstanding school 
in which to interest our prospects, and 
it is just a question of getting the job 

Last, but far from least, is our 
coaching staff. I feel extremely fortu- 
nate to have such an outstanding group 
with which to work. They are ener- 
getic and have abilitj', youth, confi- 
dence and enthusiasm. We hope to 
add another man to the staff" in the 
future, thereby enabling us to do a 
better job of coaching, scouting and 
recruiting. But until that time, we 
are going into this season with an air 
of cautious optimism, but win, lose or 
draw, I am sure that the faculty, stu- 
dents and alumni will be proud of the 
performance of the 1958 Bucknell 
football team. 


Ne"w Coach, New System, New Look 

To Feature 1958 Edition of the Herd 

ANEW coach, a new system and new 
uniforms are not necessarily all 
that it takes to turn a team which was 
fraught with mediocrity in 1957 into 
an aggressive hard-hitting unbeaten 

Subtract 12 seniors who graduated 
last June and add a handful of up and 
coming sophomores to the 14 lettermen 
who remain and this still does not 
automatically spell a successful season. 

If you talk with the local pigskin 
prognosticators (and they are numer- 
ous here in the valley of the Buffalo) 
you will find almost as many opinions 
regarding the future of the Bisons as 
you will "opinionators." 

But among those in the know (who- 
ever they are!) there is considerable 
interest in the 1958 edition of the 
Bucknell Bisons. The team will em- 
ploy a new offensive pattern of plays 
based primarily on the "belly" or 
"drive" series so successfully operated 
by Wisconsin and Miami in recent 
years. Gone will be the Split-T attack 
which characterized Bucknell teams 
since 1948. 

Head Coach Bob Odell had his first 

By Bill Davis 

look at the Bisons during spring vaca- 
tion and came away with mixed emo- 
tions. He realizes that the old bugaboo 
of Bucknell football — lack of depth — 
still prevails, but he is impressed with 
the interest, the spirit and the deter- 
mination to succeed which marked the 
efforts of his squad members. 


Taking a closer look at the 1958 
Bisons, four veteran backs will be re- 
turning, headed by Junior Dennis Cox 
of Baltimore, who served as first string 
quarterback during the last half of the 
1957 season. He is a fine defensive 
back and a natural athlete who throws 
well. Competition will come from 
Sophomore Rick Elliott of Lower 
Merion who handled the signal-calling 
chores for the Bucknell frosh last sea- 
son and from Paul Terhes, a Ridley 
Park, sophomore who is a 190-pound 
speedster with great potential. 

Heading the list of halfbacks will be 
Senior Charlie Apgar of Madison, 
N. J., who though only 163 pounds, 
has good speed and unusual power. 
Junior Ray Hettche of Baltimore is 
big and fast and showed to good ad-

seats for Dad's Day and Homecoming, it is advisable to get your ticket order in as soon as possible. 

Students and faculty again have sections D. E, and F with Alumni in sections B and C, all on

vantage in spring drills as did Sopho- 
more Marty Pope of Sunbury, a 5' 6" 
pony back. Senior letterman Andy 
Errickson of Seaside, N. J., has had 
plenty of experience and can prove to 
be an important factor in the team's 
success along with Junior Clint Gilkey 
of Allison Park, who is one of the 
most improved members on the squad. 
The inside track on the fullback slot 
must go to Cliff Melberger, a sopho- 
more from West Pittston, as a result 
of his showing in spring training. He 
is strong, rugged and has excellent 
defensive potential. Tony Rinaldo of 
Elizabeth, N. J., a junior, is also bat- 
tling for the fullback post. An un- 
known quantity is George Moncilovich, 
an engineering transfer from Pitt Cen- 
ter at Johnstown, who comes to Buck- 
nell with a reputation as a better than 
average high school performer. 


Turning now to the Bucknell line, 
End Jim Brady, a junior from Ambler, 
who goes 6' 2" and weighs 205 pounds, 
should standout up front. He lettered 
as a sophomore and has proved him- 
self an excellent offensive end as well 
as a capable defender. Junior Doug 
Forsyth of North Tonawanda, N. Y., 
who was a second string end last year, 
is expected to move into a starting 
assignment, unless Jack Eachus of 
Phoenixville, also a junior, beats him 
out for the job in pre-season drills. 

The Herd should be fairly well set 
at the tackles with Seniors Lew Hart 
of Morrisville, and Dick Hunn of 
Roselle, N. J., ready to go. Hart tips 
the toledos at 202 and Hunn weighs in 
at 220. Pressing for tackle berths are 
Junior Bob Patzwall of Baltimore and 
John Bergfeld of Havertown. 

Junior Guard Charlie Negron of 
New York City, described as "a rock 
on defense" will anchor the Bison for- 
ward wall. Pairing with him will 
probably be George Salinger of Harris- 
burg, who is also a letterman. 

Battling for the center slot are Jun- 
ior Larr)' Mathias of Reading, who 
excelled this spring, and last season's 
regular, Mike Hixson of Washington, 
D. C. 


The Herd opens the season in the 
annual Rotary Bowl game with Gettys- 
burg at Hershey. Even without the 
services of Little Ail-American Frank 
Capitani, the Bullets will be tough, for 
they alvva_\'s look upon the Bisons as 
their chief Pennsylvania adversary.

The annual meeting of the Bucknell Emer- 
itus Club was held in the Periodical Room 
of the Ellen Clarke Bertrand Library on 
June 7, 1958, at ten o'clock a. m., with the 
president, Rev. Charles M. Teufel, presiding. 
After an opening prayer by Dr. Howard 
Murphy, the minutes of the meeting of June 
8, 1957, were read by the secretary and ap- 
proved. Prof. Walter H. Sauvain was our 
faculty host. 

After some timely remarks by President 
Teufel, during which he discussed some 
pertinent issues, he read his president's re- 
port. The Class of 1903 held its fifty-fifth 
reunion at the same time as the Emeritus 
Club meeting, but some of the members 
met with us. 

Dr. Romeyn H. Rivenburg eloquently ad- 
dressed the club, after which the picture was 

taken. The present officers were re-elected 
for another year. They are: Rev. Charles 
M. Teufel, president; Prof. Frank Burpee, 
vice president; William G. Murdock, secre- 
tary-treasurer; Col. A. F. Dershimer, fund 
manager; Mary Cotton, club reporter; Dr. 
Mabel Grier Lesher and Mrs. Sarah Judd 
Shields, directors. 

Timely remarks were made by Dr. Lamar 
Williams, Prof. Boyer, Rev. Flora Clymer, 
Dr. Mabel Grier Lesher, Alan Cunningham, 
Colonel Dershimer, John C. Johnson and 
the secretary. There were thirty-one pres- 
ent at the meeting, which adjourned to meet 
at the Walker House at three o'clock, where 
a pleasant social was held.

CLASS OF 1913 

EDITOR'S NOTE: A group photograph of the Class of 1913 ivas not taken Saturday morn- 
ing, Jnne 7 , since the class toured the Northeastern Federal Penitentiary during the scheduled 
time for the taking of the class pictures. 

A gala occasion was our 45th, abounding 
in handshakes and happy smiles, rich in 
memories and crowned with reminiscences. 
For the twenty-four returnees joys reigned, 
more abiding than pleasures. To those ab- 
sent this report wishes to tell that your per- 
sonalities were alive in hearts and minds 
of all classmates sojourning those too brief 
days on the campus in June. What a grand 
prelude to a truly great SOth in 1963! 

At the Friday evening banquet Dr. Wil- 
lard Smith, professor of English Literature 
and chairman of the Department of English, 
delighted all with an inspirational, informa- 
tional message which strengthened bonds 
of affection for our college in the days when 
we toiled and played together, and for Buck- 
nell as it is today. 

The business meeting included reading of 
minutes of our 40th reunion, the treasurer's 
report, election of officers: Howard V. Fish- 
er, president; Charles L. Sanders, secretary; 
Harold A. Shaffer, treasurer; Bright W. 
Beck, fund manager and Charles L. Sanders, 
reporter, and a memorial to deceased class- 
mates — a reverent moment of silence fol- 
lowed by a prayer by Rev. John D. W. Fet- 
ter dedicating the lives of our 45 departed 

members to blessed memory and consecrat- 
ing the purposes of living classmates to con- 
tinued spiritual aspirations. Invocation and 
benediction were ofifered by Rev. Fetter. 

An adjunct of our business meeting was 
brief comment on the subject of our volun- 
tary dues in vogue since our 40th. Hope 
was expressed that at our 50th we might 
be able to show some appreciation of our 
gratitude to our Alma Mater by a money 

The tour of the Northeastern Federal Pen- 
itentiary, the parade to the gymnasium, the 
corner-stone laying, the all-alumni luncheon 
and the afternoon social in Hunt Hall recrea- 
tion room, were all features of the weekend. 

Marwood's indefatigable efforts through- 
out the preceding months made our reunion 
a grand success. Even on Sunday several 
classmates and their wives sat together in 
worship at the Baptist Church. Also a few 
classmates attended the baccalaureate ser- 
vice and commencement exercises. 

So farewell to a glorious 45th, a time for 
lasting recollections!

CLASS OF 1918 

Twenty-two members of the Class of 1918 
joined together to celebrate their 40th anni- 
versary. While the number was small, I 
am sure that everyone attending the business 
meeting, the luncheon and the social gath- 
ering during the afternoon will say that it 
was a most delightful day. Gathering at 10:30 
a. m. in the F. W. Olin Science Building we 
had an interesting meeting — learned what 
those in attendance were doing and where 
they were living, met the wives or husbands, 
had our picture taken, and elected new offi- 
cers. The class officers elected were: Wil- 
liam T. Johnson, president; Mrs. Laj'ton E. 
King, vice president and class reporter; Airs. 
Arch Kline, secretarj' and reunion chairman 
for 1963; Herbert C. Grice, treasurer; and 
Bruce O. Ranck, class fund manager. 

The new president and the reunion chair- 
man started at once planning for the next 

reunion, heeding Buck Shott's words that 
it takes five years to plan a good reunion. 

Most of those in attendance came a com- 
paratively short distance to attend — Ethel 
Heiter Riley, who lives in Clarksburg, W. 
Va., came the greatest distance. Numerous 
wives and husbands were in attendance. Dr. 
George Hobart Miles claimed the record of 
the j^oungest child, the Miles being accom- 
panied by their twelve-year-old daughter. 

We all had a delightful time and enjoyed 
reminiscing about friendships. One of our 
members who hoped to attend was Ora B. 
Smith. On May 26 she fell and fractured 
her hip bone and is now confined to the Fair- 
mont Hospital, Baldwin Ave., Jersey Citj', 
N. J. Wh}' not send her a card?

CLASS OF 1923 

Our 35th was realh' great! Fift}'-eight 
members met at the Milton Countrj^ Club 
on a perfect June evening for an excellent 
dinner. After dinner, "Dal'' Griffith, our 
efficient and tireless class president and re- 
union chairman introduced the class offi- 
cers and then asked each class member pres- 
ent to rise, give his or her own name and 
introduce husband or wife, if present. Your 
reporter then read letters of greetings from 
those unable to attend. 

After a round of lusty singing led by Larry 
Kimball, the eagerly awaited reunion books 
were distributed. They were truly an achieve- 
ment this year, and a large share of the 
credit goes to Larry whose foreword alone 
is worth the price of the book. Read it, if 
3'ou can, without a lump in the throat. 
Thanks to Lester Horam for an outstanding 
cover job, and to those who prepared the 
biographies, or helped in any other way. 

Saturday morning, pictures were taken 
and a short business meeting was held, at 

which time all the old officers were re-elected 
with the exception of Arda Bowser who 
asked to be relieved of the fund manager's 
job. The officers are as follows: Dalzell M. 
Griffith, president; Harry W. Jones, vice 
president; Foster C. Wilson, secretary; 
Frank R. McGregor, treasurer and fund 
manager; Olive Billhime Frontz, reporter. 

The Class of '22 marched proudlj- down 
the hill to the Alumni Luncheon in Davis 
Gymnasium. Following luncheon, a get-to- 
gether at Sixth Street House gave time for 
more reminiscing — Bowser recalling the 
build-up both figuratively and literally, of 
the big bonfire in the square and "Nig" Mar- 
tin telling about — but you reallj- should have 
been there. Blame Buck and Bruce if my 
enthusiasm is, at this point, heartlessly 
crushed bj' a 300-word limit, which I just 
happen to remember! See you at our 40th 
in 1963.

I wish to apologize for asking for news 
for a big write-up in the May issue of THE 
BUCKNELL ALUMNUS for our 2Sth re- 
union. I sent in an ENORMOUS article, but 
it was not printed due to restricted space. 


Ann GraybiU and Franklin Cook were 
married on Saturday, April 5, 1958, at Clover 
Nook, Refton, and are residing at 325 West 
Park Ave., State College. Mabel Lesher 
married William C. Archbold on July 5, 1958. 
Franklin Bower, due to a death in his par- 
ish, missed our 25th reunion that he dearly 
would have loved to attend, but hopes to be 
back for Homecoming on October 25. Frank 
is pastor of the First Congregational Church 
of Madison, Conn., which recently celebrated 
its 250th anniversary.

CLASS OF 1938 

In looking back upon our 20th reunion I 
am sure that anyone attending could hardly 
arrive at any conclusion other than a wonder- 
ful time was had by all. Thirty-seven mem- 
bers, along with husbands, wives and chil- 
dren came back. 

Your reporter was on the job most of the 
time, starting with registration Friday night, 
but a lot occurred that wasn't included on 

the agenda and all of the extra-curricular 
events are not covered here. As to what 
actually occurred we'll leave that to your 
imagination. The reunion got oflf to a whiz- 
bang start without any ceremony, and you 
might have guessed that we had seen each 
other just yesterday. 

Swartz Hall, a new dormitory for fresh- 
man men. provided wonderful accommoda- 


tions for about half of the class, families 
taking over an entire wing. It was diffi- 
cult, at times, to tell where headquarters 
were — Bob Reitz's home or the dorm. Much 
of the class business was taken care of in 
the dorm Friday evening, but everyone was 
up early Saturday morning and on hand for 
the class meeting in the library. As you 
might suspect, short work was made of the 
meeting, with some fast legislation pushed 
through by Steve Stephanou and Jim Nich- 
olson. Before your president knew what 
happened, all of the officers were re-elected. 
They are: Ira G. Fox, president and reporter; 
William D. Foltz, vice president; Alice An- 
derson Clemens, secretary; Constance Kraut- 
ter Edwards, treasurer, and Robert E. Street- 
er, fund manager. 

The class can never say enough in giving 
credit to those who contributed to making 
the reunion a real success. Joe Quick and 
Marion Ranck Rose as co-chairmen, along 
with Buck Shott and Bruce Rossiter, had 
things all lined up. Also, the class book 
represents a great deal of effort and plan- 
ning on the part of Isabelle Clouser. Inci- 
dentally, if you haven't sent for the class 
book do so right away before they're all 
gone. Marion and her husband, Harry Rose, 
had us all over for the Saturday afternoon 
social and this grand couple deserve our 
thanks. The gratitude of everyone is ex- 
tended to Bob Reitz and his good wife for 
their hospitality. 

— Ira G. Fox, 

CLASS OF 1943 

It is hoped that you were among the 
members of our class who were able to be 
present for at least some, if not all, of the 
events of the Class of 1943 reunion on Alum- 
ni Day. 

Beginning the day, George Haines, our 
faithful and busy class president, took charge 
of the short business meeting held in the 
Vaughan Literature Building at 10:30 a. m. 
Dr. and Mrs. James Gathings were also 
present as faculty host and hostess and gave 
us a most friendly welcome. Class officers 
were elected for a five year term. They are: 
Jay Wagner, president; George Jenkins, vice 
president; Marlin Sheridan, secretary-trea- 
surer; William G. Thomas, class fund man- 
ager, and Carolyn Donehower, class re- 

Following the election, everyone thanked 
retiring officers George Haines, Mary Orso 
Johannesen, and Norene Bond Benton for 
jobs well done on behalf of the class and 
Bucknell. The special Reunion Booklet was 
distributed by Mary Orso Johannesen who, 
with her committee, did a wonderful job in 
gathering together all the reams of informa- 
tion appearing on our questionnaires. 


After donning large country straw hats 
for the class photo, the class members par- 
aded to Davis Gymnasium for the Alumni 
Luncheon, and heard Dr. Odgers' enlight- 
ening "State of the LTniversity" address. 

At four o'clock the class gathered at the 
Otzinachson Country Club in Milton for 
dinner. Jay Wagner and George Haines 
presided. Many acquaintances were renewed 
during the hours that followed. A vote of 
thanks to George Haines, Jay Wagner, Mary 
Johannesen and the many committees that 
made possible such an enjoyable day con- 
cluded the after-dinner festivities. 

Later in the evening many class members 
attended the Cap and Dagger play, while 
others gathered at Davis Gymnasium for 
the Alumni Jamboree. 

Looking at the smiling faces and hearing 
the laughter of the group made it apparent 
that the Class of '43 really enjoyed this 
much-too-short Alumni Day. Do make plans 
to join your classmates again at Homecom- 
ing on October 25.

the Vaughan Literature Building. Pre 
officers were re-elected : Raymond L. T 
president; Herbert I. Barness, vice p 
dent; Dorothy Gotterer Horwitz, secret

"Old Sol" was out in all his glory on 
urday, June 7, for our 5th reunion. Actu 
many of us spent two beautiful days on 
campus but activities really began Satu 
morning when we assembled in the Vau) 
Literature Auditorium for our class busi 
meeting. Presiding at the meeting was N 
Freytag who introduced Dr. Harold 
Heine, our faculty host. Dr. Heine bro' 
greetings to the class from the Univeil 

Following introductions, officers wers' 
elected for the next five years. The rel 
were as follows: Melvin Woodward, p^ 
dent; Ben McKeel, vice president. 
ferandre Diamandis was re-elected score' 
with Maurice Mufson, treasurer; Joan 



eon. After the luncheon, President Odgers 
gave the "State of the University" message 
and three distinguished alumni were pre- 
sented with alumni awards. In the after- 
noon, class members met at the "Burger" 
to reminisce about bygone days, while later 
in the evening, many attended the Cap and 
Dagger play as well as the Alumni Jamboree 
at Davis Gymnasium. 

Besides seeing friends, everyone had a 
most enjoyable day looking at the new build- 
ings and the same old hills. If you weren't 
able to come to the reunion and see the 
changes, be sure to make it a date to return 
on October 25 for Homecoming. I'll see 
you there!

CLASS OF 1957 

Stettler and Frank Boguszewski, fund 
agers, and Barbara Roemer Chambers, 

Jring the meeting, Abe Powelson dis- 
ited bright green Alpine hats to all in 
idance while Maurice Mufson distrib- 
the reunion books published especially 
the occasion. A unanimous vote of 
ks was given to Maurice and his com- 
ee for the exceptionally fine job done on 
book. At the close of the meeting, every- 
assembled on the lawn outside the build- 
for the class picture. 

)llowing a short cornerstone laying cere- 
y at Coleman Hall, the class paraded to 
is Gymnsium for the All-alumni Lunch- 


The Class of 1957 didn't come out to our 
1st reunion in great numbers, but we were 
in great spirits! It felt like home to walk 
into the F. W. Olin Science Building for 
our class business meeting, but the old fa- 
miliar faces were missing. 

Vice president Sam Adams called the 
meeting to order. The first and only order 
of business was the election of ofticers for 
the next five years. Since there were no 
nominations from the floor, the present slate 
of officers were re-elected. They are as fol- 
lows: James T. Stewart, presiclent; Samuel 
VV. Adams, vice president; Sarah L. Botsai. 
secretary; Stewart L. Rankin, Jr., treasurer; 
Catherine I. Evans, reporter; William S. 
Moyer, fund manager; Hugh C. Browning, 
area reunion chairman and Benjamin J. Hol- 
lander, reunion chairman. Dr. Mark C. 
Ebersole, who acted as faculty host, brought 
us up to date on the latest campus news, 
after which we retired to the lawn outside 
the building to have our class photograph 
taken. As you can see, there were only 
four of us — some played hookie from the 

Before parading to the Davis Gymnasium 
for the All-alumni Luncheon, the class mem- 
bers in attendance at the business meeting 
received copies of the very fine reunion book 
prepared by Larry Steele and his commit- 
tee. If you have not received a copy of this 
reunion book as yet, please no not hesitate 
to order one from the Alumni Office. It is 
truly an informative and interesting collec- 
tion of news about all j'our classmates. Larry 
certainly deserves a vote of thanks for a job 
well done. 

The day's festivities were concluded with 
the Cap and Dagger play and the Alumni 
Jamboree in Davis Gymnasium. 

It was gratifying to be a part of the class 
reunion. Unfortunately a lot of manpower 
is in uniform and unable to gad about as be- 
fore. Others, I suppose, don't really feel 
like alums yet — it's a feeling that grows with 
age. So older and wiser, let's all plan to be 
together at our next reunion. Or better yet, 
plan to return for Homecoming on October 
25. It is truly a refreshing experience to 
return to the ever-changing Bucknell campus. 
— Sarah L. Botsai. 




This is 3-our invitation to suggest 
the names of Bucknellians to be con- 
sidered as candidates for a number of 
University and Alumni posts. 

The form (provided below) will 
make it easj' to exercise one of your 
privileges and responsibilities as a 
member of the Bucknell Alumni fam- 


Each year one alumni trustee is 
nominated for consideration for mem- 
bership on the Board of Trustees by 
vote of Alumni from a slate of three 
candidates selected by the Alumni 
Committee on Nomination of Trustee. 
In our large alumni body, many likeh' 
possibilities might be over-looked un- 
less we have your suggestion at hand. 
Your suggested candidate need not be 
a member of 3'our class nor must he re- 
side in your community, but he must 
have attended Bucknell University and 
should be able to give consideration of 
the broad problems of University poli- 
cy and should be willing and able to at- 
tend two board meetings plus several 
committee meetings each year. 


The committee on Alumni Awards 
will meet on Saturday, October 25, to 
select recipients for alumni awards in 
three categories : (a) for meritorious 
achievement in the field or profession 
in which the candidate is engaged, (b) 
for recognized contributions and ser- 
vice to fellowmen through such media 
as religion, charity, art, science or pub- 
lic welfare, and (c) for outstanding 
service, unselfish interest, and demon- 
strated loyalty to the University and 
to the Association. The committee will 

appreciate your suggestions of candi- 
dates in these three categories. 


The by-laws of The General Alum- 
ni Association provide for an election 
of three members to the governing 
Board of Directors each year, and you 
are invited to suggest the names of 
Alumni to be considered as alumni 
board of director nominees. 

Candidates for all these posts must 
be considered by committees meeting 
on Homecoming Week-end, October 
25. A great deal of clerical work and 
time is required in preparing biogra- 
phical resumes for committee action. 
Consequently, your suggestions on the 
form below are needed now. 


In the past, a few Alumni have mis- 
interpreted this call for candidates and 
have felt that multi-recommendations 
are necessary for favorable committee 
action. Such is not the case ; a candi- 
date with one recommendation re- 
ceives the same committee considera- 
tion as a candidate with a hundred rec- 
ommendations. It would be well to 
keep in mind that under our by-laws, 
nominating committees are required 
to select the candidate it considers 
"best suited and qualified," rather than 
on the basis of the number of recom- 
mendations. Selection of candidates 
should never be made as a result of a 
popularity contest. 

Remember — committees meet Octo- 
ber 25, and in the case of alumni trus- 
tee candidates, cannot consider persons 
who have not previously accepted the 
invitation to be placed in nomination. 
As this clearance requires time, your 
suggestions should be made now. 

Suggestions of Persons to Be Considered f0r NsminatioTS 

(Must be Submitted by October IS, 1958, or Before) 
I suggest for committee consideration the following Bucknellians:

Bobbie Runk '61 


At what age, or at what level of ed- 
ucation, can a student be regarded as 
mature enough to accept adult respon- 
sibilit)' ? The question may then be 
asked, from who's viewpoint is one re- 
garding the matter — the student's or 
the adult's. 

The Student Government Associa- 
tion began two years ago to draw up 
blueprints for an Academic Honor 
System which would be satisfactory 
not only to the faculty and administra- 
tion, but to the students as well. Under 
this system examinations are not proc- 
tored ; the student signs a statement, 
upon completing the examination, that 
he has neither given nor received aid 
during the time of the test. If he sees 
another student cheating he taps his 
pencil on his desk in warning. If the 
cheating persists he will turn the stu- 
dent's name in at the close of the ex- 
amination. All ofifenders would be 
brought before a selected student 
board to be questioned. In the case of 
a first ofl:'ense the student, if found 
guilt_\% would receive a failure for the 
course ; any subsequent offenses would 
result in suspension or expulsion from 
the University. 

This type of system, if established 
successfully, would prove an excellent 
character-builder, would save profes- 
sors a great deal of time, and would 
raise the standards of Bucknell L'ni- 
versity. Why, then, the violent oppo- 
sition raised in several directions 
toward its initiation ? The primary 
concern of those on the faculty who op- 
pose the system seems to be that it is 
unfair for those students who misuse 
their freedom by cheating to receive 
as high or higher grades than those 
who are conscientious in their efforts. 
Here it is up to the conscientious stu- 
dent to protect himself by reporting 
the oft'ender if he refuses to heed a 
warning. This is a difficult thing for 
any student to do but it is part of the 
responsibility each one must assume. 
In general, however, the faculty and 
administration favor the Honor Sys- 

Now let us examine the attitudes of 
the students, and the reasons behind 
them. It is disturbing to find that the 
students — the ver}- people who insist 


upon being recognized as adults, and 
the very ones who would benefit most 
from the system — are the ones who 
have shown the greatest skepticism 
toward its establishment and eventual 
success. They may feel that they are 
being realistically adult by recogniz- 
ing the impracticability of such a sys- 
tem and their own inability to abide by 
the rules. But it appears that they are 
actually rationalizing their efforts to 
escape the task of upholding their hon- 
or by adult standards. It is this very 
reaction which illustrates the need for 
an Honor System under which the 
students can develop a personal sense 
of honor. 

Without a doubt there will be mis- 
takes made ; there is also a possibility 
that the venture would end in failure. 
But to achieve success one must usu- 
ally risk failure. However, it is clear 
that the attitudes of the students must 
be changed favorably in order that this 
system be established with every pos- 
sible chance for success. The Academ- 
ic Honor System offers a challenge 
and it will be extremely interesting to 
discover whether Bucknell men and 
women are mature enough to accept. 


The foUozving is a letter received 
from T. Cortlandt Williains 'so, newly 
elected Alumni Trustee. 

"I am wondering if I might not pre- 
sume upon you to ask use of the pages 
to express my appreciation to the 
Alumni of Bucknell for their recent 
action in electing me as one of their 
representatives on the Board of Trus- 
tees of the University? 

"As years pass and opportunities 
present themselves many find it most 
rewarding to render such services to 
the University as individual situations 
may permit. In so doing, it is realized 
very quickly that the place Bucknell 
has made for itself in terms of contri- 
butions to a constantly shrinking world 
and its social and economic structure 
is indeed tremendous. It is realized as 
quickly how well and faithfully our 
predecessors have built and served to 
have established so impressive a result 
and the sobering fact comes to mind 
immediately that the Bucknell accom- 
plishments of which we are all now 
privileged to be so justifiably proud 
can only be projected into the future 
by the same spirit of dedication and 
enthusiasm of its Alumni and their 
friends as has made them possible in 
the past. 

"I feel greatly privileged to serve 
the Alumni body as its representative 
in these endeavors and shall count fully 
upon a continuance of the support it 
has historically given so freely."

The following week, Carnegie Tech 
invades Memorial Stadium. Pre-sea-

will be stronger than last season when 
they dropped a 13-7 decision to the 

The Red Raiders of the Chenango 
Valley will provide perhaps the most 
formidable opposition of the season 
when they come to Lewisburg on Octo- 
ber 1 1 for the Dad's Day game. Last 
year Colgate dumped the Bisons, 32-0, 
and this year the Raiders are expected 
to be improved. 

One of the most underrated teams in 
the East, Rutgers, will entertain Buck- 
nell on October 18, at New Brunswick. 
Bill Austin and the single-wing attack 
will be tough to contain. 

Lafayette will provide the opposition 
for the annual Homecoming encounter 
at Lewisburg on October 25. The 
Leopards will also have a new head 
coach this season, with Jim McCon- 
logue at the helm. Last season Lafay- 
ette boasted its finest freshman team in 

The Bisons will meet Lehigh, one of 
the strongest small college teams in the 
nation last year, on November 1 at 
Lewisburg. The Engineers are always 
tough for the Herd. 

The "Old Shoe Trophy" game with 
traditional foe. Temple, will feature the 
Bisons seventh appearance of the sea- 
son. The Owls will be striving to re- 
turn the shoe to Philadelphia after four 
year residence at Bucknell. Temple 
will be improved. 

On November 15, the Herd journeys 
to Wilmington to meet Delaware, un- 
questionably the cream of the middle- 
sized colleges of the nation over the 
past five or six years. The Blue Hens 
will be as strong as ever and that puts 
them in a class with the Yankees. 

A greatly improved LTniversity of 
Buffalo eleven will bring down the 
curtain on the 1958 season on Novem- 
ber 22 in Buffalo. The Bulls are 
definitely building and who can forget 
the upset they administered to the 
Herd two years ago. 


The opposition will generally be as 
strong or stronger than last year. The 
Bisons should be somewhat improved, 
but a new system of attack will take 
time to learn and the lack of a "super 
star" or two will not help the cause. 
You can look for a hustling, spirited 
eleven that should play a brand of foot- 
ball that will be pleasing to the spec- 
tator and be a credit to the college, her 
alumni and friends. 


Arlie W. Schardt, a University of 
Wisconsin graduate, has joined the 
public relations staff at Bucknell as di- 
rector of sports information. In that 
position he succeeds Harry L. Hulmes 
who left the campus last spring to take 
a similar post with the Baltimore Colts. 

As an undergraduate at Wisconsin, 
where he won varisty letters in swim- 
ming and tennis, Schardt was em- 
ployed for three years by the Univer- 
sity's News Service and was sports 
correspondent for various Milwaukee 

Following his graduation in 1954, 
he spent one year in a special public 
relations training program at General 
Electric in New York before entering 
the Army. Upon his discharge last 
fall, he became a sports publicist for 
the Los Angeles Rams, professional 
football team.

It's not often that a Bucknell co-ed 
graces the cover of the Penn State Alumni

was a dinner in Pittsburgh honoring Mr. 
George H. Dieke, president emeritus of

In the Emeritus Club's report you have 
read news of some of our classmates. The 
rest of us seem to be ticking along, as 
Walter Ruch says; perhaps some are slow- 
ing down a little but all are keeping up 
with events around us, and maintaining 
our interest in Alma Mater. 

All of us share in pride and congratula- 
tion to Mabel Grier Lesher for the honor 
conferred upon her by the University. 

We enjoyed the report of the activities 
of the "Alumni Reunion Weekend," wish- 
ing we could have shared in it. We wish 
again to congratulate our alumni secretary 
and editors for their good work.

In July your reporter, with 92 other 
Golden Agers, spent a week at a YMCA 
Camp at Hilltop on a 1300 foot elevation 
near Downingtown. Twenty-seven young- 
men and women looked after the group 
and every day offered a different program. 
Your reporter spent most of his time mak- 
ing ceramics and painting in oils — paint- 
ing three landscapes of the hills around 
the camp. I recommend such a week to 
any of my classmates. 


Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Hummel have 
sold their home in Beulah, Colo., and have 
moved to Pueblo, Colo., where they are 
near their daughter and three grandchil- 
dren. Mr. Hummel reports that Mrs. 
Laura Hummel Guinter was guest speak- 
er, November 24, 1957, at the 2Sth anni- 
versary celebration of the Women's So- 
ciety of World Service in Trinity Evan- 
gelical United Brethren Church, North- 
umberland, where her late husband had 
served as pastor for 25 years. 

John B. "Hen" Smiley, president of the 
Washington, D. C, Alumni Association 
of Phi Kappa Psi, took a prominent part 
in the Founder's Day celebration of the 
fraternity on February 19, 1958. He also 
assisted in the wreath-laying at the Brig- 
adier General William Mitchell Statue 
at the Smithsonian Institution on the 
same day. "Hen" also reports having 
heard a sermon by Dr. Norman Thomas 
'05 on the title "Private Morality and 
Public Conduct" at the All Souls Church 
(Unitarian) early in February. 

L. C. Hylbert had a delightful trip from 
California to New Jersey by invitation of 
the First Baptist Church of Metuchen, 
N. J., to assist in the SOth anniversary 
celebration of the church on April 27. 
While attending Crozer Theological Sem- 
inary, 1906-1908, Dr. Hylbert spent each 
week-end in Metuchen, got the Baptist 
people together in a Sunday School, later 
started church services and was the 
founding pastor when the church was or- 
ganized in 1908. 

Taking advantage of this trip east he 
and Mrs. Hylbert spent several weeks 
visiting relatives and friends in New 
Jersey, New York, Florida, West Vir- 
ginia, Indiana and Illinois.

All Bucknellians owe thanks to the 
Alumni Office for that fine issue (May, 
1957) dealing with higher education. I 
hope all '07ites read it thoughtfully. This 
child has been doing his duty writing arti- 
cles and "Letters to the Editor" pointing 
out the need for much greater emphasis 
on foreign language study in this shrink- 
ing world. Some of our educational "ex- 
perts" have actually been hostile to this 
basic element in general education; the 
most recent issue of Time points out con- 
vincingly the reasons for our surprise at 
Sputnik. We didn't have people who could 
read the hundreds of Russian scientific 
periodicals which would have warned us 
of their advances. For Pete's sake, gals 
and boys, have your grandchildren begin 
the study of languages early! 

We trust many of you are planning to 
make substantial contributions to the 1907 

scholarship fund Mary Stanton Speicher 
and her husband have so generouslv start- 

A new edition of Charles Francis Pot- 
ter's The Story of Religion must be out 
by now. Those of you who didn't read it 
before should catch up with this edition. 

The roving Rockwells are going to gi\ e 
the Alumni Office another change of ad- 
dress. After a short sojourn in our igloo 
in the Arctic (Hamilton, where thev had 
12 feet of snow last winter), we trek to 
Lakeland, Florida, where your scribe has 
accepted a visiting professorship at Flori- 
da Southern College. We are especially 
pleased, because our daughter Margie-Peg 
(Mrs. John Weihing) and her husband 
live in Lakeland and because we hear 
such fine things of Florida Southern. 

We have had a most pleasant year in 
Charlotte. Queens College has a charm- 
ing and intelligent group of students and 
a stimulating faculty. We have been de- 
lighted too vv'ith our work in teaching 
English as a foreign language to two 
Hungarian refugees, a medical doctor and 
his doctor wife, and to a young Italian 
medical man in this country on a grant 
. . . The tremendous general interest in 
education in this section promises a bril- 
liant future for North Carolina. 

Chauncy E. Brockway, Esq., has for

able plan to put America and the world 
on a free enterprise economic system. He 
has presented his program to many groups 
of economists and has testified before con-

As the dinner including wax beans and 
red raspberries fresh from the garden is 
ready to be cooked, I'll take time out to 
write this Bucknell story. To begin, How- 
ard and I are in this beautiful town of Slip- 
pery Rock which holds for us so many 
memories. Here live many of our long 
time friends and here is, on the edge of 
the college campus, the only home we 
ever built. A second owner since we sold 
it now lives in it. There it stands, the 
gray brick, so stately with its trees, ever- 
greens and shrubbery now full grown; all 
of which speak of our labors and foresight 
so many years ago. Happy memories 
linger there! 

Hurrah for our "Class Round Robin!" 
It was started alphabetically, we under- 
stand, and is well on its way down the 
line. When it comes to you and you and 
you, add your feather and promptly send 
it on its further flight. 

To receive from a classmate a letter full 
of news not only about himself but also 

SEPTEMBER 19, 5 8 

about his family, which, we feel sure, 
would be of much interest to all of us is 
wonderful; but then to read in the same 
letter this sentence: "Please do not con- 
sider any of this letter as personal items 
for the magazine," is disconcerting. That 
little word any stopped this reporter 
short. So won't at least some of you, if 
you are able send me notes about your- 
selves and — without limitations — as we 
naturally must depend on you individual- 
ly for something to write about. 

Can you believe that 50 years ago we 
were looking forward to our senior year 
at Bucknell? To me it seems so short a 
time ago. Then we were young and chip- 
per, but now — alas and alack — we are old, 
at least in years: but many of us are not 
so old in spirit. Certainly we can begin 
to plan now to answer present at our 
30th, come June. .'Mready many plans are 
forming toward the happiness of that 

Have you heard this one?

From September through March, Rev. 
George C. Fetter served the First Baptist 
Church of Ames, Iowa, (his home 
church), as interim pastor. In April he 
flew East where he visited his brother 
John '13, and his two daughters, Mrs. 
Frances E. Martin of Bethesda, Md., and 
Mrs. Judy M. Kendall of Detroit, Mich., 
and his seven grandchildren. 

A card from Winnie Dickson Hard- 
grove says she has been touring Alaska 
this past summer, going by plane from 
Fairbanks as far north as the Village of 
Barrow on Point Barrow, an all-Eskimo 
settlement. A plane trip over the Arctic 
and an ocean boat trip to see the Will 
Rogers-Wiley Post Memorial proved 
thrilling as also did a trip by dog sled.

"Gloversville is a city of over 26,000 peo- 


pie with beautiful churches and nice peo-

bers at our 45th reunion was one of the 
most enjoyable events in my life for a 
long time. I felt it would be impossible 
to be in a group of finer men than we had 
there." After spending a winter in warm

It was a real Alumni weekend. The 
weather was a bit chilly but pleasant. 
Some of the older folks had on their red 
"woollies," but the younger ones strutted 
in their sleeveless chemise gowns. 

On Friday evening. Pop and I were 
on hand for the bufifet supper in Swartz 
Hall Cafeteria. The tables were filled with 
the Emeritus group, class presidents and 
reporters, fund managers and friends. The 
food was delicious, the best I ever ate at 
Bucknell. The same thought from a 
member of the Class of 1902. The peo- 
ple were unusually warm and friendly. 
Had the pleasure of meeting Ruth Thom- 
as Sleighter '31, Ruth Rohr Liming '34, 
and Elvie Coleman Herpel '(),? — all class 

We almost had a 1912 table at the 
.\lumni Reunion Luncheon. Alberta and 
Patty Conner, Paul and Evelyn Riehl, 
Pearl Ream Williams and Frank '17, Fred 
Igler and Katie, and Pop and I. Paul 
was back to celebrate his 50th reunion 
from the Academy. Arthur Gerhart_, too, 
was listed on the bulletin board but none 
of us saw him. I did see a few people 
whom I knew: Bill Parson and Lillian, 
Jim Lose and Esther, Fuller Hayes and 
Helen of the Class of 1908; Mildred 
Gathers, Sara Ray Way, "Hermie" Banks 
of the Class of 1910; Margaret Gretzinger 
English of the Class of 1915; Blanche 
Stoner Wood of the Class of 1905; Fan- 
nie Wood P>rown and Janet Worthington 
Engelhardt of the Class of 1933; and 
Hannah Madison Townsend of the Class 
of 1921. The Class of 1913 invited all 
returnees of '10, '11, '12, '14 and '15 to 
come to Hunt Hall Recreational Center 
to reminisce and enjoy a snack. It was a 
lovely affair. Although we could only 
stay a short time, we enio>'ed evePy min- 
ute of their gracious hospitalit}'. We 
mustn't forget to put on some extra plates 
of cookies and nuts when we celebrate 
our 50th. 

Alberta and Patty did a little globe trot- 
ting this spring. They were in Japan 
and Hawaii for two months. Hope to 
give more details later.

have been called a lady, at least, once in 
my life! 

Pop, with his assessor's books, walks 
many blocks, visits many homes, listens 
to ail the gripes, comes home completely 
bushed. No time for an argument. 

What every young boy, his father and

To keep the occasion pleasant 
Be sure to forget the birthday past, 
And remember the birthday present.

Today we're living as of yore 

The old days, at Bucknell. 
Our homecoming and reunion 

We meet classmates, but too few. 
For we were searching everywhere. 

Just trying to find you. 
Those of you who don't return 

Have disappointed some friend dear. 
So put the gladness in each heart. 

Come be with us this year. 
The grandeur of the Campus, 

Enhanced by your presence there. 
Joy of being with old friends 

Who down through the years, still care. 


Put away your cares and woes. 

Come back to this world apart 
To your dear old Alma Mater 

That gave to you, your start.

After a long career as teacher and dean 
of girls at the Williamsport High School, 
you would think that Isabelle F. Bond 
would have turned far away from schools 
when she retired in 1956. But when Cove- 
nant-Central Presbyterian Church of Wil- 
liamsport announced the need for an as- 
sistant in the church kindergarten, Isa- 
belle was promptly on hand and now 
spends her mornings helping youngsters 
learn general facts about the world and 
the universe, stimulating natural curiosity 
and increasing their learning in many 
fields. "They are very eager to learn 
and their enthusiasm is wonderful," is 
the way Isabelle commented in a recent 
newspaper interview on her newest occu-

The following notes were written in 
January, 1958, for the March issue but 
due to lack of space could not be pub- 
lished. The May issue contained no class 
notes, so while these are sort of old they 
contain some interesting events which I 
feel you'll enjoy reading. Remember they 
are answers to letters written by Frances 
Hilgert Higgs to all Home Economics 
Alumnae of 1917, about returning for 
our reunion. 

Florence Dershimer Schultz: "Would 
be fine to see all the girls. Haven't been 
back to Bucknell since graduation. Our 
oldest daughter, Betty, is teaching in 
Glenside and Lois is married and living 
in Lequcigalpa, Honduras, C. A. Hus- 
band Paul is still with Hershey Choco- 
late. We are still living in Hershey. I'm 
so sorry but I'll not be able to be with 
you as this will be a very busy time for 

Betty Kates: "Sorry I can't prevent 
you talking about me this time through 
my presence. I finally wound up this 
Spring with a heart attack and have been 
no good whatever. Today I start on a 
two hour a day office schedule instead of 
one and so it goes. I was in Lewisburg 
in February to attend Dr. Harris' fu- 
neral. Remember me to all and giggle for 
me this time. I had planned to come but 
will now have to wait till next time." 

Mabelle Eede: "Frances, I can hear 
your chatter right now at the reunion. 
I'm so sorry I won't be able to join you 
but do let me hear about it. I wrote 
'Bridgie.' Haven't had her decision yet. 
Her daughter was married in April and 
will live home for the time. Bridgie has 
not been well this past year. Says she 
hears from Fay Schoch '18 and Ray 
Speare. Of course four of her close 
friends have passed on — Elvira Lewis, 
Hilda Dinterman and the Cooper twins. 
My cousin Sue Weddell will be back for 
her SOth, I think. We have not had an 
alumni meeting since December and our 
group changes so rapidlv due to G. E. 
transfers. Read that Dot Bunnell 
Schnure's husband has retired. Their one 
son was in our group. Church activities 
keep one busy due to the fact we have 


been without a regular pastor since Janu- 
ary. We have a fine interim one but of 
course he does not know the members of 
the church so we take over the calling 
duties, etc. My hobbies are sewing for 
the church and missions, listening to tele- 
vision quiz shows, playing scrabble and 
samba and knitting for the Seaman's In- 
stitute of New York City. Have a grand 

Mary Grove of West Milton: "I seldom 
get any week-ends ofJ due to scarcity of 
nurses but if I can I will try to come 
down Saturday evening. I'm working at 
a church home for the aged in Allenwood. 
Can you meet me anywhere?" (I didn't 
see Mary but I hope she made it. Ray). 

Martha Achenbach Heller writes: "I'll 
really try to get to the 1917 reunion. I 
envy you your pleasant task of writing 
to all of our group and especially getting 
all the interesting answers." (Marty, if 
you want the addresses of these girls so 
you can write to them I'll send them to 
you. Know they'd love to hear from you.

I reported in a past issue of the ALUM- 
NUS that Dr. Marjorie J. Rivenburg, 

M.A., planned to take a sabbatical leave 
from her teaching duties at Westhampton 
College, University of Richmond, and 
would travel in Italy and cruise the Med- 
iterranean. Knowing that news of her 
trip would interest us, I begged for a re- 
port! Marjorie's letter arrived too late 
for the last issue of the ALUMNUS; 
however it is so interesting it will surely 
receive first place in our report this 
month. (Forgive me, Marjorie, if I quote 
from your letter). 

". . . My sabbatical leave of last year 
seems such stale news by now. I went on 
a Mediterranean cruise of two months 
beginning at the Azores and Casablanca, 
then over along the coast of Italy to Beir- 
ut where we visited Ballbek and the 
Biblical cities of Tyre and Sidon in Leba- 
non . . . Also to Byblos up the coast from 
Beirut, then to Egypt where we managed 
to get over to the Pyramids and Cairo 
just before all the trouble in Eygpt. From 
there, we went to Istanbul and finally to 
Siciliy for a week, Naples for five weeks, 
Rome, Pisa, Genoa, and stopped at Sar- 
dinia and Spain on the return voyage . . . 
I was gone about four months and had a 
wonderful time visiting thirty-two differ- 
ent places . . . We went on a very luxur- 
ious Norwegian cargo liner carrying 
twelve passengers. It is the best way to 
go to the Mediterranean and the food 
was wonderful!"

A cordial welcome once again to the 
academic year. I would like to receive 
word of your many travels and interests 
during the past months. You have no 
idea how some folks look forward to 
news of their old friends. Let's give. Ful- 
fill the promises of 1955 — I mean you!! 

Way back in March, I had an invita- 
tion from Mary Bray Young in Norris- 
town for a luncheon of Bucknellians to be 
held on the 28th. To my surprise, there 
were twenty-one former Bucknell women, 
among them Mary's sisters. It was a 
wonderful get-together, meeting again at 
least twelve from the Class of '25. Pic- 
tures of sons, daughters and grandchil- 
dren made the rounds. It was a great 

pleasure to be with them all. Thank you,

Dr. Robert Lindner's true psychoana- 
lytic tale, "The Fifty-Minute Hour" will 
be the basis for a musical to open on 
Broadway this fall. It is a most fasci- 
nating story and the talents of Hal Prince 
and Bobby Griffith (most recently co-pro- 
ducers of "West Side Story") should cre- 
ate a new hit. 

We were delighted to see Dotty Kester 
'34 in Cleveland this summer. She par- 
ticipated in a meeting on speech at the 
National Education Association Conven- 

I have had several telephone conversa- 
tions with Edie McCormick Smith. She 
and Stu and their two teen-agers are now 
living in Baltimore and we are looking 
forward to having a reunion before the 
end of the summer. 

We are in the process of packing our 
gear to go to Rehoboth Beach, Del. Con- 
sidering the kind of summer we have had, 
it should consist of swim suits, raincoats 
and hip boots. What's new with you?

I hope each and every one of you have 
had a pleasant summer. 

Since we had no class reports in the 
last two issues of the ALL^MNUS, there 
are several items of news to report. 

Early this year our industrious class 
president, Charles Kottcamp spent a 
month in Venezuela on a business trip. 
I hope his prediction that 50% of our 
class would contribute to this year's fund 
drive proved correct. 

Dr. J. Fred Weaver, director of under- 
graduate studies in the Boston LTniversity 
School of Education for the past 2% 
years, has been appointed to the newly 
created position of director of graduate 
studies and associate dean in the same

his new appointment. Fred, his wife, and 
their four children make their home at

I have been collecting tid-bits of infor- 
mation since long ago last spring, so this 
ought to be a nice fat column. 

Last April I heard from Carolyn Shaw 
Freeman, who reported the arrival of 
Gwen Elizabeth on March 3. Carolyn 
and her husband Carl are living in Bos- 
ton, 299 Beacon St., to be exact. Their 
menage also consists of Carol Anne (al- 
most two), and a rat-catching dog named 
Jupiter. Carolyn claims to be busier now 
than when she was a bacteriologist. 

I was surprised to see Charlie Vogel 
at the last Philadelphia Alumni Club din- 
ner. I thought Philadelphia was pretty 
far afield from Michigan, but I discovered 
he and Giny were moving to these parts, 
and Charlie was also taking over a new 
job. Their new address: 1318 Pine Wood 
Rd., Villanova. The new job: regional 
sales manager, Aluminum Division of 
Olin Mathieson Chemical Corp. 

May brought a welcome letter from 
Martha Knights Barraclough. One of 
the highlights of our reunion for me 
was seeing Martha again. As if being 
neck-deep in church work, and keeping 
up with the activities of Marcie. Ronny 
Joe and Franny were not enough. Martha 
says she is going to start a 4-H Club. 
Such energetic undertakings make me 
feel like a loafer. 

Unfortunately, we had to cancel our 
reservations for Commoncenient week- 
end, but Herb Watson was there, and also 
at the Philadelphia Alumni Club dance 
this spring. 

I suppose you all know that Herb was 
elected president of the Philadelphia 
group. Congratulations, Herb, and many 
thanks for passing along these items: 
Edie Griesinger Rohde is busy with Girl 
Scouting, being a county (or is it dis- 
trict?) official. Edie. Lee and their three 
daughters were planning to see the U.S.A. 
this summer, .\niong the '37-ers at the 
dance were Mr. and Mrs. Warren E.

direct mention of Bucknell. lo and be- 
hold a picture of an alumnus appeared 
in the special supplement. He is Am- 
brose Saricks 'il . associate professor 
of History at the University of Kan- 
sas. Dr. Saricks received a Master of 
Arts degree from Bucknell Univer- 
sity in 1941 and a Ph.D. degree from

from you. and vou. and YOLT.

Not many Bucknellians can tell \-ou 
how Jericho looked 10,000 years ago, but 
Mrs. T. Garner James (Frances W. 
Theiss) could tell us plenty for she again 
spent last winter on an expedition organ- 
ized by the British School of Archeology 
in Jerusalem. The findings of the expedi- 
tion have been reported by Frances in a 


series of articles appearing in The Eve- 
ning Nezi's of London under such intrig- 
uing headlines as "Adventure in the 
Dust," "We Try to Solve the Ten Skull 
Mystery," and "Cocktails in Tomb P-5." 
When not on expedition, Mrs. James re- 
sides in London. 

About the most unexpected local in- 
troduction of Bucknell into the conversa- 
tion was with the Dick Spaids of St. Jo- 
seph, our twin city. Dick was a student 
in the West Orange (N. J.) High School 
when Harry Wenner was head coach 
there in 1945.

A dream of fifteen years has finally 
come true for our family — we now own 
a cabin in a woods along a fine swim- 
ming and fishing creek and onh- about 
an hour's drive from our home. This 
spring and summer has been a mad rush 
of painting and building a screened porch 
and generally acting like a hauling van 
company, toting all the furnishings over 
in our station wagon. It's been a lot of 
fun and the summer has been too full 
for me to even answer the few notes I 
received. I'll do better this winter, though, 
so keep them coming.

31, 1958. to Mr. and Mrs. George M.

you two!.

-lOVEMBER 1838 

As THIS IS BEING WRITTEN, grads from around the globe 
are preparing to make the trek to the 300 acres for 
the gala Homecoming celebration on October 25. Of 
course, by the time you read this, the cheering, the re- 
unions and the frivolity will be but faint memories to the 
hundreds of alumni who enjoyed the many events sched- 
uled by the Homecoming Committee. 

The committee, consisting of alumni, students, faculty, 
and members of the administrative staff scheduled once 
again, many of the events that have been so popular in 
the past as well as two brand new features. 

The addition of a Friday night dance sponsored jointly 
by the Interfraternity and Panhellenic Councils brought 
to the campus Ted Heath's internationally famous English 
orchestra, now on its first tour of the United States. 

This year, for the first, the Bison Club sponsored a 
special Silver Anniversary Weekend to which thirty-four 
living members of the Bucknell football team of 1933 
were invited. The team members returning were special 
guests at the Bison Club breakfast held Saturday morning 
at which time Bob Odell, new Bison football coach, was 
the main speaker. The silver anniversary squad was also 
presented at the buft'et luncheon in Davis Gymnasium 
prior to the game with Lafayette, and later sat together as 
honored guests at the game. Members of the football 
team of 1908 and before were also guests of the Bison 
Club for weekend festivities. 

Students entered into the spirit of the day when the 
fraternities, sororities, and freshmen participated in the 
traditional Homecoming parade prior to the pep rally and 
buft'et lunch at noon in Davis Gymnasium. The Home- 
coming Queen, crowned at the IFC-Panhellenic Dance 
on Friday night rode in the parade with her court, cheer- 
leaders, alumni and city officials. At the football game. 
Dr. Charles F. Fox, Jr. '31, president of The General 
Alumni Association, presented her with a dozen red roses. 

Following the game, the Bucknell Alumni Club of 
Union County held a Bison Roundup reception for re- 
turning alumni, faculty, and guests. The evening enter- 
tainment included student entertainment and dancing to 
the music of Johnny Nicolosi's orchestra. 

During the weekend the Board of Directors of The 
General Alumni Association met and meetings of the 
Committee on Nomination of Alumni Trustee and Alumni 
Awards Committee were held. The class presidents and 
reunion chairmen of classes whose numerals end in "4" 
and "9" held a brief session on Saturday morning to dis- 
cuss plans and preparations for June 1959 reunions. Sat- 
urday evening the fourth annual Engineering Alumni 
dinner was held at the Lewisburg Club. 

Of significant importance in the planning of this year's 
program was the part played by students and the organi- 
zations which they represent. No less than six students 
representing four student organizations and the Reser\-e 
Officers Training Corps were responsible for many of the 
featured events on the program. Students on the Home- 
coming Committee included : Donald J. Avery '59, Wells- 
ville, N. Y. ; Miss Ruth Gortner '59, Lansdowne : Ellis 
Harley '59, Clearfield ; Robert Howell '60, Weston, Mass. : 
and Richard Hunn '59, Cranford, N. J. And, of course, 
we must not forget the Bison Band, cheerleaders, and last 
but not least, the football team. The University owes a 
debt of gratitude to the students who gave unselfishly 
of their time and effort in making Homecoming 1958, the 
best ever. 




Fitz R. Walling, Director of Admissions, and Robert A. Newcombe, Assistant Director 
of Admissions ponder over the ever-increasing stacks of applications for admission to 
Bueknell University. 

Constantly Striving to Improve Methods of 
Selection, the University Has the 
Responsibility of Seeking Applicants of 
Qualified Preparation and Character 


The title of this article poses a 
question more and more frequently 
asked by many Bueknell Alumni. They 
are concerned about the chances of 
their sons and daughters being admit- 
ted to their Alma Mater. In the par- 
agraphs that follow, we hope to give 
some of the answers to this question. 
To do so we must keep in mind the 
responsibility of the University to seek 
applicants of qualified preparation and 
character while constantly striving to 
improve the methods of our selection. 

Sons and daughters of Alumni will 
be given preference for admission if 
their records show the same evidences 
of probable success in college as non- 
alumni children. Also, when it is re- 
quested, children of alumni will be 
given early consideration of their ap- 
plications, provided complete creden- 
tials* have been received before Jan- 
uary of the year in which they expect 
to enter college. This will give alumni 
children the opportunity to learn at an 
early date whether or not they can be 
offered admission. 

By Fitz R. Walling 
and Robert A. Newcombe 

This "Alumni preference" will be 
considered an integral part of our ad- 
mission process which provides for the 
admission of the most capable young 
men and women from among the hun- 
dreds, currently becoming the thou- 
sands of applicants. In this process 
successful applicants are selected on 
the basis of academic records in sec- 
ondary school, verbal and mathema- 
tical scores on the aptitude test given 
by the College Entrance Examination 
Board, and personal recommendations 
of their high school counsel6rs. 

Bueknell has always given prefer- 
ence to applicants whose parents are 
Bucknellians. There is no thought of 
changing this practice but only of be- 
ing fair to their sons and daughters. 
The University believes that it is un- 
fair to admit any student whose rec- 
ords indicate that he or she would have 
little chance for successful completion 
of his college work. Furthermore, 
such a practice would be unfair not 
only to the prospective student, but 
also to parents and other applicants. 

The Admissions Committee feels 
since it is in keeping with present pro- 
cedure, that Alumni sons and daugh- 
ters should be placed in three classifi- 
cation groups : ( 1 ) those who are 
without question, excellently preparec 
candidates, whose applications can b( 
immediately approved for admission 
(2) those who, just as clearly, an 
poorly prepared candidates, whose ap- 
plications must be disapproved ; and 
finally, (3) those who belong to thi 
middle group. It is within this group 
the largest of these classifications, tha 
preference will be given to sons an( 
daughters of alumni. 

Although the Admissions Committei 
carefull)' avoids a rigid policy on ad 
missions in the face of changing de 
mands on educational institutions sucl 
as ours, it assures you that your son 
and daughters will be given very care 
ful consideration for admission to you 
Alma Mater.

The Student View 



Occasionally an Odysseus Rises From Among 

the Ranks of Lotus Eaters, but Today the 

Average Seems to Be Dropping 

What is a university? Just what 
are we doing here at Bucknell ? These 
and many other vital questions com- 
posed the backbone of discussion at the 
recent Leaders' Conference at Cowan 
Recreation Center, sponsored by the 
Student-Faculty Congress. Many ex- 
'tremely interesting thoughts and view- 
} points were expressed. 

tl It was felt that there is a very defi- 
le nite and disturbing lethargy prevalent 
on campus — a lack of concern for the 
outside world, and a lack of adult at- 
titude. We seem content to direct our 
conversations toward members of the 
opposite sex, a subject which very 
conveniently dismisses the need for 
stimulating our poor brains which are 
, indeed overworked with digesting our 
academic material. But then come the 
more-than-welcome weekends with 
their cultural and stimulating frater- 
nity parties, designed, no doubt, to de- 
A'elop the individual in the field of hu- 
, man relations. 

May I take this opportunity to clar- 
ify my position — I would be one of the 
last to suggest doing away with fra- 
ternity parties. But it seems appalling 
that they are the center of the social 
life of, i would venture to say, 90% 
i of the students on campus, because 
i' "there is nothing else to do." How 
; many have fallen thankfully and ig- 
norantly upon that rationalization ! If 
only we would all realize it, there are 
a great many other things to do. There 
are fascinating diversions available if 
only we will take the time to discover 

Last year on campus there was a 
guest lecturer who spoke on astron- 
omy, and who drew a fantastic atten- 
dance of 12. Yet those 12 will vouch 
for the interest and worth of that eve- 
ning. At the beginning of this year a 
gentleman spoke on the subject, "How 
to Edit Private Papers," and received 
an equally sparce audience. A terribly 
dry topic, you may say. Perhaps, but 
those who attended returned with noth- 


ing but the highest commendation for 
the lecturer. He had a keen sense of 
humor and explained some fascinating 
aspects of his field. Also on campus 
recently have been famous pianists, an 
excellent string octet composed of Ital- 
ian masters, and man}' other accom- 
plished performers, presented through 
the Artist Series. The bulk of their 
audiences are the local people, and 
those few students who show enough 
initiative to learn about, and make the 
efifort to attend, these afifairs. 

Why should these people be in the 
minority ? Free admission eliminates 
financial problems ; the incessant bridge 
games and gab-fests indicate that lack 
of free time may be disregarded as a 
possible excuse. It indeed boils down 
to an intellectual indolence and a con- 
stant striving only after a "good time." 

Those who realized this condition on 
Bucknell's campus and spoke most 
heatedly and indignantly about it 
among themselves were the leaders on 
campus, those responsible for the or- 
ganization and welfare of the student 
life. It is comforting to know, isn't it, 
that the leaders of the campus are be- 
coming aware of this lethargy and are 
speaking out against it? The gravity 
of the situation is that upon speaking 
to junior and senior members of the 
group, who have been attending the 
meetings for several years, we find that 
the same questions are raised, the same 
indignations are expressed for the 
same reasons, the same resolutions 
made in answer to the same problems, 
year after j'ear, and yet no one has 
done anything about it. 

We are representative of college stu- 
dents across the countrj-, and it is al- 
most frightening to realize that upon 
our shoulders the aft'airs of the nation 
will be falling. Of the vast majority 
of the student body, only those enrolled 
in the political science courses take 
time to read a newspaper. Even those 
people are content to memorize facts 
from the first and second pages, and 

these facts are often forgotten after 
the test at the end of the week. This 
languor brings to mind Homer's Lotus 
Eaters. Those men who succumbed 
to the magic spell were lost. But Odys- 
seus was able to fight against it. It 
was this strength of character which 
made him a leader of men. Are there 
no Odysseuses any more, or are we 
all Lotus Eaters? 

A great hue and cry has been raised 
the past few years about conformity on 
the campus, that each Bucknellian is 
just like any other Bucknellian. Some 
have laid the blame for this on the Ad- 
missions Office. After all, they are the 
ones who admit the students and wh\' 
not select a more varied group? But 
if the student would only stop and look 
around him, he w o u 1 d realize the 
countless sources of this mass confor- 
mity right under his nose. A fresh- 
man soon after arriving on campus 
who behaves "dift'erently" and perhaps 
not to the liking of an "established" 
upperclassman is immediately reported 
to Tribunal, that omniscient, omnipo- 
tent board of sophomore judges. 

I do not feel that I have been pessi- 
mistic, only realistic. I also feel that 
there are solutions to these problems, 
however hopeless I may have made 
them appear. It is good to know that 
the men and women are indeed aware 
of this passiveness. Something must 
be done to stimulate serious thought on 
the part of all of us, and to stir up 
enough courage and stamina to do 
something about it. This also is a 
challenge which, I'm sure, ever3'one 
of us is able to accept. The question 
now is, will we? 

EDITORS NOTE: If this statement seems 
to be another indictment against the "beat" 
generation, zcie feel we can be grateful that 
on the Bucknell campus there is at least a 
hard core of serious minded students ivho 
recognise the maladies and are at work 
I'ointing the ivay to a fuller participation by 
students in the practice of learning to become 



Charlie Apgar, senior halfback (number 24) from Madison, N. J., finds 
a gapping hole in the Carnegie Tech line. 

Gridders Providing 
Plenty of Excitement 
Despite Early Reversals 

Sports Information Director 


There are hundreds of ways of analyzing football 
games, and an equal number of ways to explain why a 
team loses them. Only one thing is sure ; once the game 
is over, nothing can change the result, no matter how 
obvious it is (to you!) that it would never happen again. 

After Bucknell dropped a frustrating 6-0 contest to 
Gettysburg in the mud of Hershey Stadium, Bucknell's 
Bob Odell must have felt the fates were not smiling upon 
him, for he had seen his plans to beat the Bullets with a 
passing barrage disappear 90 minutes before the game 
began. The field was a quagmire, the game a near stale- 
mate but for the tireless efforts of Gettysburg's light 
footed George Greiner, who seemed magically endowed 
with the ability to dance above the slog and thus score 
the game's only touchdown. 

As Bucknell basketball coach Ben Kribbs told Odell 
the next afternoon, an ironically sunny and dry one, 
"Don't take it too hard, Bob. Remember, half the coaches 
in the country feel as bad as you do today !" 

With that healthy philosophy to carry him through 
the following week, Odell prepared his team to meet 
Carnegie Tech in Memorial Stadium on October 4. The 
team was convinced, and rightfully so, that it still hadn't 
had a true evaluation of its abilities, and hoped that a 
dry field would let it find out. 

The field was dry on October 4, and for three quar- 
ters it appeared that Bucknell could do plenty. With 
only one period left, the Bisons held a 13-0 lead and 
looked ready to increase it. They were beginning to 
"iell" under the direction of rookie quarterback Paul 
Terhes, who was still carrying the signal calling load 
in the absence of injured junior Dennis Cox. 

It was then that the visiting Tartans unloaded all 

manner of misfortunes upon the Bisons. Almost in- 
conspicuously they slithered 46 yards to the Herd goal 
line, where Carnegie quarterback Jim Muth, a talented 
passer, jumped over a snarl of linemen and made the 
score 13-6. The conversion set the score at 13-7, Muth 
left the game, and was replaced by freshman Alex Bowx- 

For eight minutes the action see-sawed. Then Bowx- 
sein began flinging passes as fast as he could line up his 
team, and almost before anyone realized it, the plaid- 
clad visitors were camped on the Bison eight yard line. 

With 2 :40 left in the game, Bowxsein took dead aim 
on a freshman classmate, Martin Poad. So eager was 
he to connect that he tried to throw the ball right through 
a pair of Bucknell defenders who stood between him and 
his target. And he did it. 

Call it a miracle, call it a terrible mistake, call it an 
impossible tragedy — the ball skidded off the hands of a 
Bison back, Poad stepped forward, hugged it into his 
belly, fell back and curled up in the end zone. Tie score. 

The blue and white of Bucknell did not lose their 
composure at this alarming turn of events. Instead, end 
Jack Eachus hurled himself smack into the path of the 
try for the extra point and held the score at 13-13. 

Then the Bison offense, which moved for a com- 
mendable 284 yards all day, immediately set out to regain 
the lead. Slashing runs by piston-legged fullback George 
Moncilovich, and a fine pass from Terhes to Marty Pope 
started the drive, a penalty and a run by Charlie Apgar ■ 
kept it going, and in no time at all Bucknell was on the 
12 yard line of Carnegie Tech, ready to win one for Bob 
Odell. Overanxious, they fumbled, and a Tech lineman 
smothered the ball. 

Tech appeared willing to settle for a 13-13 tie, trying 
two line plunges. Suddenly Coach Baker changed his 
mind, shouted "Try anything." Halfback Walt Majeski 
promptly popped out of a pocket and sprinted 52 yards, 
then lateralled to center Jim Temmel, who reached the 
Bucknell 26. 

Freshman end Jim Arendas ran into the Tech huddle 
with 12 seconds to go and told Bowxsein to throw one 
to him. Bowxsein floated a high lob in the general direc- 
tion of the newcomer. 

Arendas saw that he overran the pass and was too 
deep in the end zone. He dug in his heels, lunged back 
toward the corner where the goal line meets the side line, 
and dove for the ball. Paul Terhes nearly cracked him 
in half with a tackle that should have jolted any receiver, 
but Arendas held the ball in the crook of his elbow as the 
entangled pair crashed down, then rolled over on his 
back with the ball and a 19-13 lead, in his grasp. 

There were still seconds left after Tech kicked off, 
and again the Bison offense showed it could move. Co- 
captain Apgar burst for the sidelines and almost got loose, 
but was stopped on the Tech 35 and the game was over. 

The Bisons have an exciting offense under Coach 
Odell, and are learning a lot of valuable football lessons. 
The team has sweated its way into excellent ph}-sical 
condition, and at this writing is confident that it will 
pull a few surprises before the season ends. With the 
exception of Cox, whose knee is mending nicely, the host 
of players who were injured early have recovered, and 
the rugged conditioning program is paying dividends in 
that no one was hurt in the first two games. It is a 
team with high spirits, one that can and will stir up a 
lot of excitement in the ensuing weeks. 


Coach Bob Latour and his aides Franny Hatton and 
Chuck Wagner, are working with the largest freshman 
squad in many years. There is a great deal of promise 
in the 39 candidates who will open their schedule on

Freshman Receptions Popular 

HARRISBURG— After two months 
of summer vacation, the Bucknell 
Alumni Club of Harrisburg held a 
get-together meeting at the Reservoir 
Park on Thursday, September 4th. 
We had 89 attending our party includ- 
ing our own members, guests, fresh- 
men, and their parents. 

Following a tasty buffet, our presi- 
dent, Norma Gotwalt '52, welcomed 
the freshmen. Bruce Butt '16, intro- 
duced the 15 freshmen and their par- 

Mr. William Schafifner '51, chair- 
man for the reception, introduced the 
student panel who gave helpful sug- 
gestions and guidance to the new stu- 
dents. The panel was represented by : 
Mary L. Grossman '61 ; Herbert Hoff- 
meier '61, and Charles Miller '59. Each 
in turn gave his own account of the 
campus life from the social and educa- 
tional viewpoint. Interesting details 
from a freshman's first glimpse of col- 
lege days to the graduate "feeling" was 
described by Nancy Boyer '58, who is 
a member of the faculty of West Shore 
Grade School. 

Dr. Roy C. Tasker, professor of biol- 
ogy and guest speaker, discussed prob- 
lems and practical solutions that may 
approach a new student. He com- 
mented on the sound advice the stu- 
dent panel projected toward becoming

LONG ISLAND — The Bucknell 
Alumni Club of Long Island enter- 
tained over three hundred guests at the 
annual freshman reception on Septem- 
ber 8 at the Community Church in 
East Williston. 

A short business meeting was held 
to elect a new slate of officers for 1958- 
1959 and directors for a four year term. 
The new officers are : William S. Lim- 
ing '33, president ; Leonard S. Von- 
Heill '52, vice-president ; Michael Har- 
ris '50, treasurer ; and Barbara A. Jo- 
senhans '56, secretary. The new direc-

Mrs. Walter Davis '48, Joseph C. 
Laucks '27, Arthur D. Harrison, Jr. 
'54, Richard H. Klemm '53, and John 
F. Nothel, Jr. '49. 

Of the seventy-five men and women 
from Long Island in the Class of 1962, 
Alice D. Budde of Amityville was cho- 
sen winner of the Long Island Alumni 
Club's Scholarship for this year. This 
award is open to all freshmen from 
Nassau, Sufifolk, and Queens counties 
and is based upon scholarship, need, 
and activities. 

Dean Karl D. Hartzell was present 
to welcome the freshmen and their 
parents to Bucknell. Twelve under- 
classmen served on the men's and wo- 
men's panels to discuss the Bucknell 
way of life. On the women's panel 
were : Ann Blake '59, Lyn Geller '59, 
Marjory Kuhn '60, Janet Macnair '59,

Wright '59. 

The Long Island Club is planning 
to sponsor the Bucknell Band when it 
comes to Garden City next spring. The 
band will perform in the auditorium of 
the Stewart Avenue School on April 
22 and it is hoped many Bucknellians 
will come to hear one of Bucknell's fin- 
est musical organizations.

NORTH JERSEY — The Bucknell 
Alumni Club of Northern New Jersey 
held its annual Freshman Reception at 

(Continued on Page 30) 




The weekend of October 4 was a : 
busy time for Alumni Fund ^\'orkers. 

Invited to the campus as the guests 
of The General Alumni Association 
were class fund managers, assistant 
class fund managers, personal solicita- 
tion chairmen and members of the 
Board of Directors and the Alumni 
Fund Committee. 

At the first Workshop, held in No- 
vember 1957, to which alumni club 
presidents and class fund manager.s 
were invited, the suggestion was made 
that the 1958 Workshop be confined to 
a discussion of ways of improving 
alumni communications concerning the 
Alumni Fund and the University's 
over-all development program. At the 
Saturday work session. Dr. Wesley X. 
Haines, Director of Development, out- 
lined future plans for co-ordinating all 
University fimd raising activities over 
the next few years. A more complete 
statement of these plans will be found 
in this issue of THE BUCKNELL 
ALUMNUS on the last page of the 
special colored insert. 

Alumni attending the Workshop 
discovered that the emphasis is on 
"Work." Over nine hours of dis- 
cussion were held in the four sessions 
conducted under the titles of "What 
We Did and How We Did It", "1958- 
59 Objectives and a Look at 1959- 
1960", "Questions and Answers", and 
a final "Summary" session. If that 
seems like a formidable amount of time 
spent in business discussions, let us say 
that the attendants at the Workshop 
expressed enthusiasm also for the op- 
portunities of meeting other alumni 
workers, and renewing associations 
with classmates from other areas of 
alumni activity. The \\'orkshop group 
attended the Bucknell-Carnegie Tecli 
football game on Saturday afternoon 
as the guests of the University. 

Those in attendance included : 
Charles F. Fox Jr., M.D., '31, Presi- 
dent, The General Alumni Association : 
and Directors, Mrs. Paul Showalter 
'31, Dr. E. P. Bertin '17, Mr. and Mrs. 
Robert W. Dill '27, Allen F. Jones '25. 
Robert Taylor '48. 

Class fund managers who attended 
were : John C. Johnson '04, Jere Bates 
'15, Eugene D. Carstater '26, and Rav 
Tallau '51. 

Representing the personal solicita- 
tion group were: Clifl^ord C. Deck '18, 
Quentin R. Walters '48, and P. Her- 
bert Watson '37. 

Assistant class fund managers were 
represented by Ellen V. Campbell '58.

Gifts Received from July 1, 1957, to June 30, 1958 

The following is o list of the names of ALUMNI, FACULTY, 
SYLVANIA, who mode contributions to the University during the 
TENTH FUND YEAR, 1957-1958. 

As a result of this generosity of the Bucknell Family, the Alumni 
Annual Giving Fund has reached a total of $53,433.91 — the larg- 
est amount yet rec64ved in any year since the Fund was instituted 
in 1948 — and a 22% increase over the previous year. 

Such splendid results can only be secured with a high degree of 
team-work. The University thanks the 4,574 loyal sons and daugh- 
ters that made this record possible. Success derives from a happy 
combination of many factors. At the top ranks leadership. Bucknell 
is endowed with a lorge shore of this precious gift and it was gener- 
ously given by Edward W. Pangburn '15 and Charles F. Fox, Jr. '31, 
co-chairmen of the Bucknell Alumni Fund Committee. They were 
ably assisted by more than 170 class fund managers, 52 chairmen 
of personal solicitation area programs and 525 personal solicitation 

Extreme care hos been taken in the preparation of the lists of 
names, but some errors and omissions are almost inevitoble. We will 
opprciate if you will call such errors to the attention of the ALUMNI 
OFFICE. No doubt some gifts intended for the Fund year were re- 
ceived after July 1, 1958. These gifts will be credited to the present 
Eleversth Alumni Annual-Giving Fund and the donors' names will 
appear on the Eleventh Fund list. In past years each name listed 
was followed by a figure indicating the number of years of giving 
since the Fund wos established in 1948. In a number of cases the 
figure was inaccurate because proper credit for heating plant gifts 
of 1948 was not given. This year no figures are listed but during 
the year the contributors list of the heating plant campaign will be 
fully audited to bring annual-giving records up-to-date. 

It is hoped that each alumnus will make an annual gift during 
the current fund year which began on July 1, 1958, and extends to 
June 30, 1959, because Alumni Fund Giving, under the "Living En- 
dowment" principle calls for a gift EVERY year.

The plan for the Bucknell Alumni Annual-Giving Fund Is simple. 
Alumni dues and magazine subscriptions have been discontinued. Every 
alumnus, former student and friend of Bucknell is invited to moke an 
unrestricted gift to the University each yeor. These gifts ore directed 
to current operations and ore used where the Board of Trustees find the 
greatest need. Some port of each dollar inevitably goes for faculty sal- 
aries, supplies, heat and other building maintenance costs and the thou- 
sand and one items needed by a University. Each person contributing, 
no matter what the amount, will be listed as a donor in THE BUCKNELL

LET'S TRY FOR $5,000,000 

Your gifts to the Bucknell Alumni Annual-Giving Fund oione this past 
year equal the return on more then o $1,300,000 of Invested endowment 
(figured at 4% return). If every alumnus and former student makes just 
the average gift, the 1958-59 Fund will equal the return on more then 
$5,000,000 of rnvested endowment. And if every present giver contributed 
dollar per year for each year since college days — Oh, Boy — we'd startle 
the college world. By such increasing support of the Bucknell Alumni An- 
nual-Giving Fund, alumni and former students can make our Eleventh Fund 
Year (1958-59), a most substantial "living endowment.''

1 . Your Fund gift is deductible on your income tax. 

2. If you have your own business, a corporate contribution is worth considering. 

3. IN MEMORIAM gifts are made by many Bucknellians, honoring Bucknell friends 
and relatives. 

4. Family gifts will be credited to husbands and wives (50-50) if you list names and 
classes of each in your remittance envelope. 

5. Fund ideas or personal news items, enclosed with your check, will make it doubly 




Marking the fourth year of personal solicitation, more than 570 alumni visited 5 
Buckneilians each in 45 alumni regions. This growing habit of Bucknellian visiting Buck- 
nellian to become better acquainted, discuss local club activities and in a friendly but per- 
sistent way remind supporters of the need for contributions will ultimately put Bucknell and 
its Alumni Fund at the top. 

The value of personal visits on behalf of the Fund was again clearly demonstrated by 
the fact that over 40% of the contributors were Buckneilians who hod never before made 
a gift in the Bucknell Alumni Annual-Giving Program. 

When it is remembered that there ore still over 10,000 Buckneilians from coast to coast 
who have never yet been visited, it is evident that face-to-face visits by Buckneilians will be 
the challenging invitation of the coming year. Will you pick up a piece of this assignment — 
to visit five of your Bucknell neighbors next spring?

" a $1,850,000 capital-funds campaign to put Bucknel 

into a higher orbit in American education . . . the next majo\ 
step in our ten-year ten-million-dollar development plan.' 

Ladies and gentlemen, this is the seventy-fifth 
anniversary of Bucknell's first official intercollegiate 
football game. It was played vi^ith Lafayette, the 
same opponent we face this afternoon. 

I welcome you on your return to the campus and 
thank you for this opportunity, the only one that 
presents itself during the weekend, to make an an- 
nouncement not directly related to the Homecoming 

As loyal alumni you are officially hearing this 
news first: By authority of our Board of Trustees, 
and after careful study made under the direction of 
professional counselors, the University is launching 
a $1,850,000 capital-funds campaign to put Bucknell 
into a higher orbit in American education. This be- 
comes the next major step in our ten-year ten-million- 
dollar development plan, announced in 1956 and al- 
ready well begun. 

This news is coming to you first, not only because 
Alumni is alphabetically the first category among 
our supporting groups (Alumni, Businesses and Cor- 
porations, Campus, Community, Foundations, Friends, 
Parents, Trustees), but more importantly because 
alumni interest is at the heart of any University effort. 

We are calling this campaign the "Double Devel- 
opment Fund," because it will help Bucknell to match 
the gifts of others for both "brains" and "bricks." 
The $1,850,000 campaign will enable your University 
to add almost half of this amount to Bucknell's en- 
dowment, principally to maintain a superior faculty; 
to convert to dormitory use the offices in "Old Main" 
and to remodel East and West Colleges, in order to 
provide a completely modern men's dormitory quad- 
rangle; and to complete Vaughan Literature Build- 
ing with a centralized administration center. 

We plan to waste no time in getting this impor- 
tant campaign under way and have worked out the 
following schedule : 

1. From now until February, we shall be making 
preparations and soliciting initial gifts. 

2. From February until June, we shall be soliciting 
corporations and foundations, and seeking special gifts. 

3. From early next September until the end of 
1959, the intensive general solicitation will be carried 
out on the campus, in the community, and among the 
general alumni. 

Note that Alumni are in the important "final count- 
down" position. You will be able to provide the ul- 
timate "thrust" to put Bucknell successfully into a 
higher orbit. 

This time schedule makes the current Annual 
Alumni Fund efifort, ending in June, 1959, the most 
important yet undertaken. You reached an all-time 
high of over $53,000 last year. The higher it goes 

in 1958-59, the stronger your Alma Mater will be ii 
its capital-funds eiJort, and the weightier will be it 
appeal to other groups as it points to ever-increasini 
annual support by those who know the Universit; 
best, its alumni. 

In 1959-60, the Annual Fund, having reached it 
highest point yet, will be merged with the capital 
funds campaign. From September to December, 195? 
alumni will be asked to give or pledge over a three 
year tax period one substantial amount, a part c 
which will be credited to the Annual Fund for each c 
the three pledge years. The total goal of the cair 
paign includes estimated amounts from the Annu? 
Fund for the three-year period. Thus the integrit 
and continuity of the Fund will be preserved. Thi 
has the support of the Board of Directors of Th 
General Alumni Association. 

This year you will be kept informed through a 
media about the University's needs, the quotas suj 
gested for each category of support, and the progre; 
of the campaign with other groups, so that durin 
September to December, 1959, you will be able inte 
ligently and enthusiastically to bring the campaig 
to a successful conclusion. 

This is necessarily an abbreviated, and not a ful 
announcement, for none of us wants to miss the kicl 
off on this Homecoming 75th football anniversar 
But let me remind you that ten years ago, with tl 
Alumni at the heart of it, a "full steam ahead" car 
paign provided an initial "thrust", since magnified l 
the "solid fuel" of massive gifts from individuals ar 
from foundations to whom Bucknell will ever 1 
grateful. As a result there have been brought in' 
Bucknell's present orbit a heating plant, a library, 
science building, a freshman dormitory, a swimmii 
pool, a gym front and annex, our largest classroo 
building with its university theatre, several significa: 
renovation and physical plant improvements, and tv 
and one-half million dollars in additional endowmer 
There is every reason to think that this momentu 
will bring us additional contributions for endowmei 
and that it eventually will attract extraordinarily lar 
gifts to provide our Chapel-Auditorium and a ne 
women's dormitory, although neither of these nee 
can be included in the present campaign. These a 
complishments in the recent past have made possit 
steady advance in educational achievements at Buc 

Bucknell now has a "launching pad" from which 
can, with three times the thrust of ten years ago, ent 
a higher orbit in both the outer space of educatior 
excellence and the inner space of better equipp ! 
student minds. . 

The "count-down" has begun, and your Ah' i 
Mater is counting heavily on you, its alumni!

your activities as president of one of

Sunshine State. He has also been active 
in politics; he recently declined the nomi- 
nation for governor on the Republican 
ticket. So far as we know, he is the first 
Bucknellian since the late Lincoln Hul- 
ley '88, former president of Stetson, to 
be considered for that post. We wish 
Bill would run; we'd like to hear one of 
his campaign speeches. When we saw 
him this summer in our native village — • 
Old Monroe, Pa., — he hadn't acquired a 
Florida accent.

Our Fiftieth Reunion was more in every 
way than we anticipated. It was very 
heart-warming to realize how much it 
meant to our class members to get to- 
gether. They came from Texas, Florida 
and California. Ed Innes and his wife, 
both recently sick in a hospital, came even 
though it meant bringing an attendant to 
assist Mrs. Innes. Some of us had to in- 


troduce ourselves (we have changed a 
little). Olive Richards Landers told Ben 
Harris that if he just had some hair on his 
head, she could recognize him. Others 
looked just (?) as they did 50 years ago. 
Charles Bromley and Posy Hayes are 
good examples of that. 

A warm greeting from our President, 
Charles Nicely, for each '08 alumnus as 
he registered for the week-end started us 
on a rare two days.

Dr. Heber W. Youngken attended The 
Pan-American Congress of Pharmacy and 
Biochemistry held at Washington, D. C, 
recently and presented a paper entitled 
"Observations on Morinda citrifolia." He 
retired from teaching last June after 34 
years of service as professor in the Mas- 
sachusetts College of Pharmacy; where- 
upon he was elected Emeritus Professor 
of Pharmacognosy and Botany. He is 
continuing his research and writing. 

In August Heber attended the plant 
science seminar at Ferris Institute, Big 
Rapids, Mich., and presented two E. L. 
Newcomb Memorial Awards on behalf 
of the American Foundation for Pharma- 
ceutical Education for the best essays on 
subjects in Pharmacognosy. 

Heber further writes: "After living 
in our Arlington (Mass.) home for more 
than 34 years, we sold it and purchased 
a ranch-type home at 17 Cox Road, Win- 
chester, Mass. The old home had be- 
come too large for Clara to take care of 
and the many steps of three stairways 
tiring and not too good for the hearts 
of elderly people. Our new home is 
quite modern and will be considerably 
easier to keep up than the one we sold."

Dr. J. Earle Edwards, pastor emeritus 
of Queen's Baptist Church, New York, 
where he served for 27 years, is now liv-

summer Dr. Edwards was guest minis- 
ter for three Sundays at Trinity Method- 
ist Church in that city. During the year 
he has a large Sunday School class in 
Pasadena Community Church of St. Pe- 
tersburg. Seven miles outside the city, 
still this church attracts many thousands 
every Sunday during the tourist season. 

Do you like to read about what your 
former classmates are doing? They'd be 
just as glad to hear about you! Won't 
you send your class reporter some news 
about what you're doing so she can pass 
it on? 

Having just been appointed reporter for 
the Class of 1911, I would like to furnish as 
much news as possible for THE BUCK- 
NELL ALUMNUS. I know you have 
been disappointed in the past because there 
hasn't been more news from our classmates; 
therefore, answer the questionnaire that has 
been mailed to you and return it to me as 
quickly as possible. I must have news in 
the Alumni Office for the January issue by 
November 27.

In our mail was a letter from Edna 
Whittam Glover with suggested plans for 
the reunion next year. She has been work-

to urge you all to mark your calendars 
for next June 6 and our forty-fifth. 

As a word of warning, I am asking for 
news or you will hear again about the

This will be received, of course, after 
Homecoming and while our plans are still 
not materialized, I'm still hoping that a 
baby-sitter will pop out of the wallpaper 
someplace and that we can make it back 
for Homecoming. The news letter gave us 
all the details about sitting together again, 
a precedent started last year by our class 
and quite a successful venture, so let's 
hope we hit that 100 mark this year in 
seats sold in our section. 

Somehow, I missed the boat in not see- 
ing Midge Mellor Tice (Mrs. Walter) this 
summer. Walt and Midge live in Quak-

stafif of the Tice Clinic, a wonderful place 
where his father and uncle are also in the 
group of doctors. I intended to see Midge 
all summer and finally had to make a visit 
to the Clinic with one of the children and 
the Walter Tice's were on vacation. Made 
arrangements to see them the next week 
and somehow, we missed each other, and 
I was terribly disappointed. By the time 
this goes to press, I certainly hope that 
we have been able to get together and 
I'll have some news next issue of more 
of the Class of '42.

June 9th is an important date at our

Baby Bisons should handle themselves 
capably against all comers. They are 
a bit bigger and a bit tougher than

is a long one, and it's only beginning. 


Hank Peters feels he has the best 
soccer team since he took over as 
coach in 1952. The hooters met two 
of their three strongest opponents in 
the first two games, losing 7-1 to the 
nation's number two team, Penn State, 
and to Temple, 2-1, before the biggest 
home crowd to watch a soccer match 
(over 600) since anyone can recall. 
With eight other teams to play, Buck- 
nell can finish with a winner for the 
first time since 1949. 


Ben Kribbs spent six years building 
the team that will take the court this 
winter, and along the way they have 
posted 16-8 marks during the past two 
seasons. Led by All-East center Hal 
Danzig, who is a menace to ever\- 
school record in sight, and amply abet- 
ted by all of last year's starters, Buck- 
nell's biggest enemy could be overcon- 
fidence, ahhough of a wary sort. Kribbs 
is still pinching himself to be sure that 
forwards Ellis Harley and Bob Erics- 
son, and guards Jack Flanegan and 
Tommy Thompson are really back, 
giving him five men who average 6-3 

Lack of depth may prove a handi- 
cap, but those "Big Five" will still 
mean that if you want to watch them, 
you'd better buy your tickets early.

We praise Thee, O Thou God of tuitions, for thy great goodness 
and for Thy manifold blessings upon the sons of men. Thou art in- 
deed Creator and Lord of all the earth and Thy glory fills the heavens. 

We thank Thee for this good land and for our national inheri- 
tance; for the vision of those who conceived the ideal for our national 
life; for those who struggled to bring the ideal into material being; 
and for those who through the years have dedicated themselves and 
their means to the preservation and growth of the nation. Thou hast 
given to us the high privilege of leadership. Wealth, largeness and 
vast resources have been entrusted to us. Power to build or destroy, 
to control or to lead has been placed in our hands. Grant that we 
may be endowed with wisdom to match our opportunities, with hu- 
mility to match our responsibilities and with consecrated devotion 
to match the divine call to human service and leadership. May we 
never fail as individuals or as a nation to meet the challenges to great- 
ness which fill the days. In humility we acknowledge that it is not by 
our might or power that we can fulfill our divine destiny, but by Thy 
spirit and by Thy grace. 

God grant us to live in peace in the affairs of nations; not a stag- 
nation that kills or corrodes, but a peace which envokes and enriches 
the whole of world fellowship. Guard us from bigotry or blatant 
worship of material power. Grant that the spirit of charity and under- 
standing, the attitude of good-will, and the purpose of helpfulness 
may dominate our affairs and guide our progress. Join in us we pray 
Thee, both the spirit of Thanksgiving and the joyousness of Christmas. 
With thankful hearts and dedicated lives may we accept the Incarna- 
tion, that Thy holy purposes may be manifest in us as individuals, as 
a University and as a Nation. 

In the spirit of Jesus of Nazareth, we pray. Amen

THE 39 MEMBERS of the freshman class of 1962 who have either a Buck- 
nell dad or a Bucknell mother or lioth provide an interesting study. Geo- 
graphically they come from the states of Pennsylvania (20), New York (6), 
iNew Jersey (8), with a few from Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Ohio. 

Other relatives of freshman members more distantly removed than mother 
or father are made up of 11 grandfathers, 7 grandmothers, 29 uncles, 17 aunts, 
21 brothers, 13 sisters, 6 sisters-in-law and 20 other relationships still more 
•distant. All in all, it would seem that the Bucknell tradition as a "family" 
Icollege is well maintained in the present freshman Class of 1962.

by Dr. Lester Kieft, Chairman, Department of Chemistry 
and Dr. Meldrum B. Winstead, JR- 

It was thirty-eight years ago that H. G. Wells 
wrote "Human history becomes more and more a race 
between education and catastrophe." He might well have 
been writing about today's world. During the past year, 
many anxious Americans have concerned themselves with 
our American education in general and science education 
in particular. The United States has increasing needs 
for people well-trained in mathematics, science, and en- 
gineering. In order to obtain them, do we need a "crash" 
program in science? We feel that a "crash" program 
would add many young people to fields where they have 
little aptitude and would probably cut down on the qual- 
ity of our scientific training. Our leading educators and 
scientists agree that this is not the answer. Not every 
young person can adapt his talents to the physical sciences, 
and no one should be forced into any field of science if 
he lacks the necessary aptitude and personality. We will 
be doing many of our most talented young people a great 
injustice if in our eagerness to obtain tomorrow's scien- 
tist, we overlook tomorrow's scholars and artists. We 
must not concentrate too much of our attention on this 
one area of education, or we will be in danger of neglect- 
ing other important areas. 

While we prize what scientists and engineers have given 
us, we know that thej- have their limits. They have pro- 
vided us with the atom bomb and intercontinental ballistic 
missiles, but the final decision as to whether to use them, 
and how, and when must rest with others. To some 
extent this decision rests with all of us, and what we 
decide to do will depend on many factors — military, polit- 
ical, economic, religious. 

A sane approach to this serious shortage of scientists 
is to make certain that science is taught in our high schools 
and that it is taught by teachers adequately trained in 
science. Many of our high school science teachers are 
inadequately trained in science. For example, last year 
in the New York City school system alone more than 
10,000 students were in science classes taught by teachers 
who were not trained in science. This is a situation that 
threatens to become worse. Between 1950 and 1955, the 
number of graduating teachers qualified to teach high 
school mathematics dropped 53 percent and those quali- 
fied to teach science dropped 59 percent. Furthermore 
only about 60 percent of the graduates certified to teach 
mathematics or science in 1955 entered teaching as a 

On the students' side — partly because of inadequate 
guidance programs — there has been a drift away from 
science and mathematics courses. The result of low stu- 
dent interest, and poor high school programs in science 
and mathematics is virtually to foreclose careers in science 
and engineering to many bright young people. They 
miss the necessary basic training. Man}^ who do attempt 
college training in these fields are ill-equipped. Engineer- 
ing school deans report that fully half of their students 
enter with deficiencies in mathematics. 

It was in 1953 that the National Science Foundation 
started a program to encourage our high school teachers 
to improve subject-matter mastery of science and math- 

ematics. They started the Institute program at two col- 
leges and it has continued to grow each year. Last year 
125 Institutes were conducted. Government support for 
this program has increased each year since its inception. 
Over six thousand high school teachers went back tc 
school last summer — many for the first time in fifteen oi 
twenty years. 

The National Science Foundation has sponsored ar 
Institute at Bucknell during the past two summers foi 
sixty high school teachers. Recently the National Science 
Foundation announced a grant of $64,900 to Buckne! 
LTniversity to conduct a third Institute at the Universit} 
in the summer of 1959 to accommodate 75 teachers. 

Dr. Lester Kieft 

Dr. Meldrum B. Winstead, Jr. 

Over half of the 120 teachers who attended our pre 
vious Institutes came from Pennsylvania and the re 
mainder from twelve other states. There were more thai 
three hundred applications received for the 1957 Institute 
Last summer approximately six hundred and fifty appli 
cation forms were received. The selection of participant 
was determined by the following aims and objectives: 

1. To improve the subject-matter competence of th 
participating teachers. 

2. To strengthen the capacity of these teachers fo 
motivating able students to consider careers in science. 

3. To provide definitely designed courses in the fieli 
of science. 

4. To provide an opportunity to discuss science teach 
ing with other science teachers. 

5. To stimulate the use of demonstrations and othe 
good teaching techniques. 

6. To bring these teachers into personal contact witl 
prominent scientists who participate in the Institute. 

7. To provide teachers an opportunity to visit indus 
trial research laboratories in the area. 

8. To increase the prestige of teachers. 
The majority of the Institute teachers had had fror 

three to twenty years experience in high school teaching 
Many of those with only a few years experience were no 
only able to profit from their associations with more ex 
perienced teachers in the Institute, but were also able t' 
apply their courses as credit towards completing the re 
quirements for the Master's degree in Education. Th 



enewed enthusiasm and stimulation which the teachers 
eceived from the course work offered in the Institute and 

i)y their associations with other teachers, professors, and 

I'isiting lecturers provided them an opportunity to look 

' orward to many more fruitful years in their profession. 

They left the Institute with a new purpose in teaching, 
md many felt what one expressed when he said : "I thor- 
lughly enjoyed every aspect of the Institute and hope that 
. may be able to repeat the experience soon. I realize now 
low badly I needed it." 

The formal Institute program consisted of several 

■ypes of activities: (1) courses in subject matter, (2) 
ecturers by visiting scientists and other individuals, (3) 
liscussion groups, and (4) field trips to nearby research 

laboratories. Last year the full-time teaching staff con- 
;isted of seven Bucknell faculty members. Each of the 
:ourses taught at the Institute carried three semester 
lOurs of graduate credit towards the Master of Science 

jU Education degree. They were designed specifically 
'or teachers and were conducted much like graduate 
:ourses with lectures, reading assignments, library re- 
iearch, and examinations. 

The afternoon lecture program, which is an integral 
)art of the Institute, brought the high school teachers 
nto contact with a number of prominent scientists. Each 
ecturer remained on the campus for at least two days, and 
n addition to his general lecture, he also presented two 
special lectures in his particular field. 

In addition to the discussion period which followed 
he afternoon lectures, there were four groups (biology, 
general science, mathematics, and physical science) which 

inet twice a week. These meetings helped the Institute 
acuity better understand some of the many problems 
vhich face the high school teacher today. 

Several field trips were taken during the summer, and 
:hese involved the entire Institute. There were additional 

':rips for the biology and mathematics teachers. On every 
:rip there were lectures, and, sometimes, demonstrations by 
<ey research personnel in additon to the visit of the re- 

i search laboratories. The research directors and their 
staffs were very generous in giving their time since they 
realized the value of the entire program to the high school 

Most of the participants in the Institute indicated that 
they would like to return to Bucknell for another Institute. 

jThey felt that the Institute had met their expectations 
and that the work would have a direct bearing on their 
teaching. As one member of the Institute put it: "The 
Institute program was excellent, well planned and co- 
ordinated. The faculty represented a high type of per- 
sonnel. They upheld high standards, but showed a great 

ideal of understanding of our problems. I feel that this 
type of Institute must be just what the Eederal Govern- 

iment had in mind." 

I We would appreciate it if Bucknell Alumni would 

Icontact their high school science teachers and bring this 
opportunity to their attention. The high school teachers 
should apply to Dr. Lester Kieft, Director, Institute for 
High School Science Teachers, Bucknell University, Lew- 
isburg, Pennsylvania. 


j In addition to our Institute program, Bucknell has 
been cooperating with the West Branch Manufacturers' 
Association in sponsoring the Susquehanna Valley Science 
Fair at Bucknell University. The West Branch Manufac- 
turers' Association is the first manufacturing association in 
the country actively engaged in sponsoring a science fair. 

, The Science Fair is a tried and tested teaching device that 
reaches out into the classroom. The fair is designed to 
encourage interest in the study of science among high 
school students and to help the teachers discover and en- 
courage the exceptionally able and gifted science student. 


It gives the student increased interest and enthusiasm 
for the wonders of science that have been opened to him. 
It allows the students to discover for themselves the 
challenge that science has in store for them. It may even 
be the gateway to their future profession. The fair is 
held in Davis Gymnasium and last year over 600 high 
school students prepared projects for exhibition. 

In recent months many individuals have attributed the 
decline in science studies in the Nation's schools to "kids 
just don't like tough science subjects." We believe that 
the falsity of this premise is amply illustrated by the 
truly remarkable examples of youthful application and 
industry displayed in our Fair. 

No other age level can show any more tireless enthu- 
siasm for hard work than our youngsters, if it is properly 
channeled and encouraged. What the Fair proves, be- 
yond any reasonable doubt, is that American youth can 
and will meet any challenge with which it is confronted, 
if only the adults — their fathers, mothers, and teachers — 
will back them up with constructive help and advice. Low 
standards — in scholarship and most other categories — 
are not usually set by youngsters but by the adults they 
imitate. Public interest in the fair was extremely high 
and it is estimated that more than 10,000 people visited 
the exhibits during the two days the fair was open to the 


In September Bucknell began a pilot program in 
science education sponsored jointly by Doctors for Buck- 
nell and the University. The program is designed to 
strengthen Bucknell in the basic science field by helping 
to attract superior high school students for our science 

Dr. Rudolph E. Haffner has been selected to act as a 
liaison person between the University and the high school 
science teachers in the Susquehanna Valley. Dr. Haffner 
is teaching part time on the campus and the remainder 
of his time is devoted to work with the area science teach- 
ers and their students. Dr. Haffner received his Ph.D. 
degree in biology from Yale University and before com- 
ing to Bucknell taught at Colby, Yale, and Wesleyan.

Sports Information Director 

Two YEARS AGO Coach Ben Kribbs' Bucknell basket- 
ball team turned in the first winning record by a Bucknell 
quintet in over a decade, and while they were at it, his 
marksmen broke the all-time school record for victories 
in one season by coming home first 16 times in 24 starts. 

Last year, virtually the same group tied that record 
by finishing again with 16 wins and eight losses. 

Now, as the 1958-59 season gets into full swing, the 
same five men who tied the victory record last }-ear are 
hard at work trying to break it. As of this writing, they 
have gotten off to a flawless start b}- downing Gettvsburg 
in the opener at snow-bound Davis Gym, 77-62, and trip- 
ping Rutgers on the Scarlet's own court, 95-69. 

The men elected by their teammates to lead the wa\- 
through the campaign are senior center Hal Danzig, 
Rochester, N. Y., and senior forward Ellis Harley, Clear- 
field, Pa., who will serve as co-captains. 

They are joined in the starting unit by veterans Bob 
Ericsson, senior forward. Jack Flanegan, senior guard, 
and Tommy Thompson, junior guard. Ericsson stands 

Hal Danzig, 6' 6" senior center and co-captain of the Bisons, prepares to 
sink one. Hal is a native of Rochester, N. Y. 

6-6, Flanegan 6-1. and Thompson 6-0, giving the team an 
average height of better than 6-3 when combined with 
Danzig's 6-6 and Harley's 6-3. 

The attack is built around the talents of the powerful 
Danzig, who set school marks in scoring (426) and re- 
bounding (387) last season, and who has piled up 769 
points in two years to place him only 414 from the career 
record completed in 1951-1952 by joe Gallagher. 

Bucknell has everj-thing a potentially fine basketball 
team needs — speed, agility, experience, height, and desire 
— each of these vital elements is present, and is embel- 
lished by the strenuous conditioning program set down by 
Kribbs early in the fall, beginning with several weeks of 
pounding over the cross country course. 

To balance oft' these assets, though, are two potentially 
fatal liabilities ; first, the schedule, which is the toughest 
in Bucknell history and includes practically every out- 
standing powerhouse in the east ; second, the reserves con- 
sist mainly of untested, though promising, sophomores. 

The Carrousel Tournament, rapidly becoming one of 
the nation's leading basketball classics, attracted such 
giants as Bucknell's first-round opponent, St. Francis of 
Loretto, with its half-dozen regulars standing over 6-5. 
Others in the tourne^', which was concluded on Xew Year's 
Eve, included Clemson, Davidson, Fordham, George 
Washington, Pitt, and South Carolina, making up quite 
an imposing list of "name" basketball powers. 

Penn State, Temple, St. Joseph's, La Salle and Pitt, 
all perennial court pace setters, also appear on the Bison 
schedule, meaning there is little room for relaxing and a 
lot of room for thrills throughout the winter grind. 

Reserve-wise, the problem which Kribbs considered 
his number one obstacle at season's start, lack of depth, 
could become critical if the Bisons hit a serious jam in 
which a scoring punch is called for. 

Two upperclassmen, both good drivers and good shoot- 
ers, can help a lot, including senior Bill \\'ooster. Roch- 
ester, and junior Pete Matz, Fanwood, N. J. Wooster 
whipped in nine points in three minutes against Rutgers. 

Leading sophs are Bruce Babich and Lou Slife, from 
East Rockaway, N. Y., and Dayton, Ohio, along with 
the man who must replace Danzig when the need arises, 
6-4 Dave Evans, Lakewood, Ohio. Doug Horstman, 
Mike Kasnick, and Larry Stoops round out the squad. 


"The old order changeth in a hurry" is the wa)' Coach 
Bob Latour has paraphrased an old truism in the Buck- 
nell swimming pool. After losing all eight in the first 
year of Bison swim history, his team finished with 6-2 
last year. 

This season will be conspicuous not so nnich for the 
varsity's exploits because that group is a bit thinner than 
last \-ear, but rather for the thrill of anticipation that will 
be provided by the freshmen, who opened their season 
last week with a stunning upset — they tied one of Ameri- 
ca's prep swimming giants, the Hill School, bv a 43-43 
score, and did it in Hill's own tank. 


Coach Bill W'rabley doesn't want to change anvthing. 
His team won all seven matches last year, and he won t 
mind a bit if they do it again. 

Graduated are Larry Dempster (7-0) and Edge Leuei 
(3-3-1), but back are the following: Dave Murdock at 
167 pounds, whose 1957-58 record was 7-0 and was capped 
by a first in the Middle Atlantic Championship : Tolin 
Ayre (7-0) at 130 pounds; Pete Fritts (7-0) at 147; 
Roland Bell (5-1-1) at 137; Grant Watkins of the soccer 
team is back at 177, while Kenny Wightman and Bob 
Glicknian return at 123. 




To LOOK AT THE RECORD of the fall varsities now that 
noke has cleared away is like coming home from a 
easant vacation to find that your house hurned down. 

Thing's just didn't seem that bad at the time. But the 

lid facts are that Bucknell's house really did take a 

•aling — the Bisons wound up with four wins in 19 var- 

>ty contests, including a 1-8 record in football and a 3-7 

j ark in soccer. 

Both teams are going to improve next year, although 
fiat statement probably appears ridiculously superfluous 
1 1 the face of the black and white reality in the preceding 
;iragraph (you might easily say "They can't help but 
iiiprove"). But the truth is that Bucknell can look for- 
ard to a marked upswing in both sports in 1959. 

Team captains have been chosen in both sports. Lead- 
ig Bob Odell's gridders will be an agressive and ver- 
Utile lineman from Reading, Pa., Larry Mathias. Hank 
eters announced that his soccer team chose co-captains, 
[icluding junior Steve Flamhaft, Brooklyn, N. Y., and 
bphomore Bob Schad, Jenkintown, Pa. 

Mathias started at center throughout the first half of 
le season, then switched to guard when a rash of injuries 
epleted that position. Throughout the year Odell re- 
peated that "Pound for pound, there isn't a better football 
I layer anywhere than Larry Mathias," adding that "If 
arry had a little more size (he's 5-10, 180 pounds) he 
•ould start on any team in the country." 
I Flamhaft was the driving force of the soccer team 
11 season. Like the gridders, the soccermen suffered 
[lost from lack of reserves, as witness their 0-0 halftime 
uel with Navy which wound up as a 4-0 loss when the 
■ liddies bore down with two alternate units in the second 

; Flamhaft was chosen second team on the all conference 
fquad along with fullback Roger Mackey and was also 
ihosen to try out for the eastern college all star team in a 
'eries of matches sponsored by the U. S. Olympic Commit- 
T in New York during December. He spent the Christ- 
ies vacation in Florida as a member of the North All 
lars for the annual North-South game in St. Petersburg. 
Schad was chosen on several all-opponent teams for 
is line play throughout the year, and will be a key factor 
|i boosting Bucknell scoring from his inside right spot 
[ext fall. 


; Colgate 7, Bucknell — The biggest crowd of the 
I ear, nearly 8,000, appeared for Dad's Day game despite 
:he previous week's disturbing 19-13 loss to underdog 
Narnegie Tech. Colgate's big line was outhit all afternoon 
ly the Bisons, but Fred Rice's Red Raiders scored with 
imly moments left in the first half on the only drive that 
iarried them past the 50 in the first 30 minutes of action. 

Bucknell established what was to become an unhappy 
;abit for the rest of the reason by making several serious 
hreats, only to bog down in close. 

Bright spot for the Bisons was George Salinger's in- 
erception of three passes, for which the Harrisburg junior 
eceived All East recognition. 

Rutgers 57, Bucknell 12 — This game was unique 
n that the Bisons made 20 first downs and gained 348 
■ards while absorbing one of the worst losses in recent 
3ucknell history. 

All-America Billy Austin was the whole story before 
'0,000 Homecoming fans at New Brunswick as he smashed 
, he school rushing record by carrying for 189 yards as 
kell as scoring two touchdowns and passing for two more. 

Rutgers was simply too big, fast, and deep for Bucknell. 

ANUARY 1959 

During the Homecoming Weel<end, tlie members of the 1933 Bucknell 
football team held a reunion at the Lewisburg Club. Pictured from left to 
right are: "Doc" Pangburn '15; Joe Rhubright '35; George "Butch" Boiston 
'35; Nick "Beppo" Farina '34; Jack "Mush" Dorman '34; Max Reed (their 
line coach); Dr. Edwin "Whitey" Raymaley '36; Jock Dempsey '34; and 
Bob Pethick '36. 

Lafayette 34, Bucknell 6 — Bucknell excited a damp 
Homecoming crowd of 5,800 by jumping to a 6-0 lead 
where Paul Terhes picked his wav through five yards of 
tacklers to score. 

The Leopard ground attack soon took charge, though, 
paced by three TD's by Don Nikles, and the visitors scored 
in every quarter to take their fourth straight win of the 

Lehigh 35, Bucknell 1-1 — This is the most deceptive 
final score of the season. Lehigh held a shaky 14-6 lead 
v\'ith 6 seconds remaining in the third quarter, then drove 
53 yards in 8 plays for a 22-6 advantage that broke the 
Bisons' back and added two quick ones in the fourth 

The longest scoring play in the Middle Atlantic Con- 
ference was executed when Terhes passed to Jack Eachus, 
Phoenixville, Pa., for an 84 yard touchdown on which 
Eachus ran the last 40 yards. 

Bucknell 44, Temple 6 — A great day in Philadel- 
phia, and a wonderful week end for the team. The teams 
spent Friday night at the famed Cherry- Hill Inn, Haddon- 
field, N. J-, then spent most of Saturday afternoon scoring 
touchdowns in Philadelphia, paced by Paul Terhes, who 
scored three touchdowns, passed to Jim Brady, Philadel- 
phia, Pa., for a fourth, passed for two conversions and 
ran for another. 

Another fine sophomore quarterback, Fred Elliott, 
Philadelphia, Pa., replaced Terhes in the final canto and 
promptlv flipped a 37 yard touchdown pass to soph end 
Mike Goldstein, giving the Brooklyn, N. Y., wingman a 
touchdown on his first varsity reception. 

This win broke the longest losing streak in Bucknell 
history, 11 games counting five from 1957. 

Most important, it was the first win by a Bucknell 
team for Bob Odell, something the players had hungered 
for almost to the point of developing a guilt complex about 
it during the middle part of the season. 

Delaware 28, Bucknell 8 — ^This was without doubt 
the best game Bucknell played all year. The outmanned 
Bisons stood up against a two platoon pounding for three 
quarters before a penalty against Bucknell for pass inter- 
ference gave Delaware 42 yards and first down on the 

Bison three. (continued on Page 10) 


The Student View 



If we are to change our values we must look for a 
potent force to stir us out of our self-interest. 

Dr. Philip E. Jacob has recently 
published the results of an extensive 
survey of American colleges in a book 
entitled Changing J-^alues in College 
which analyzes the trends of student 
values. This book was the theme of 
the 1958-1959 Religion-in-Life Pro- 
gram at Bucknell, and we were fortu- 
nate to have Dr. Jacob on campus to 
speak at Convocation. Some of the 
statistics tabulated in this study raised 
considerable comment and afforded us 
an opportunitv to examine ourselves in 
relationship to the entire country. 

Dr. Jacob reports that "the values 
of American college students are re- 
markabl)' homogeneous, considering 
the variety of their social, economic, 
ethnic, racial, and religious back- 
grounds, and the relatively unrestricted 
opportunities they have had for free- 
dom of thought and personal develop- 
ment." However, several colleges, very 
definitely the small minority, indicate 
a significant change in student values 
from the freshman through senior 
years. There is also a rather wide 
range of difference in values among 
several schools. A giant spectrum of 
values held by students at all of the 
colleges ranges from orthodoxy and 
conservatism to liberalism and toler- 
ance of individualism. Into what par- 
ticular part of this spectrum does Buck- 
nell fit? In which direction do the 
values of Bucknell students change, if 
they change at all ? ^^'hat is the Uni- 
versit}- doing to develop a potency and 
a special atmosphere that can exert a 
more profound influence upon the atti- 
tudes of her students? 

Bucknell seems to find its place 
close to the center of the spectrum, but, 
because of its character as a small lib- 
eral arts school located in the North, 
it leans slightly toward liberalism. It 
does not seem to have any characteris- 
tic effect upon its students as far as 
their own values are concerned. The 
third question above is the important 
issue : what are we doing at Bucknell 
to develop a more liberal and open- 
minded attitude — the apparent aim of 
a liberal arts collesre? 

Noted recenth', through editorials 
and letters to the editor in THE 
BUCKNELLIAN, in classroom dis- 
cussions, and in informal dorm, frater- 
nity, and sorority discussions, are in- 
creasing differences of opinion that 
cause discord and a general rising dis- 
content with the present state of af- 
fairs on campus and in the world. 
There are those who are concerned 
over this discord and wish to resolve 
it quickly and quietly. But it seems 
to me that this is the beginning of a 
rebellion against apathy and a realiza- 
tion of the need for improvement. It 
is this discord that increases interests 
beyond ourselves. 

Dr. Jacob says the lives of students 
are ruled b}^ self-interest. We can 
find a striking parallel between this 
type of interest and the chemical phases 
of the natural elements, ^^'hen atoms 
are left undisturbed they are satisfied 
within themselves, and float uncon- 
cerned as a formless gas. But when 
they are disturbed by some outside 
force, the}- begin to move and dis- 
cover that, indeed, other atoms do ex- 
ist, and they become attracted to these 
other atoms. 

Society holds together, too, when 
interests extend beyond the self. It 
is held together by the attraction for 
and interest in others. We see it when 
we begin to question the selfish motives 
behind our activities. A society based 
on self-interest loses its cohesiveness 
and eventually disintegrates. Indiv- 
iduals become self-contained, and as 
such, lose the power to further their 
own interests. 

Bucknell students are not political- 
ly-minded ; there is a definite general 
lack of concern for student govern- 
ment and the election of student lead- 
ers, and there is poor attendance at 
class meetings. As far as I can learn, 
this has been the situation for several 
vears. Recenth- an anonvmous article 
appeared in THE BUCKNELLIAN 
suggesting that because of the lack of 
interest along this line we discontinue 
the Student-Faculty Congress as a 
campus organization. What an agi- 

tator this type of statement is ! It is 
this type of force that causes some of 
the self-centered atoms to sit up and 
notice the other atoms, S. F. C. is a 
campus tradition that has alwa3-s been 
and always must be although most stu- 
dents do not realize its function. Per- 
haps a threat to do away with part of 
the campus tradition will stir up a lit- 
tle interest. 

Bucknell seems to conform to the 
findings of Dr. Jacob that students do 
well in the classrooms of liberal arts 
schools, but do not make the connec- 
tion between liberation of mind and 
control of values. Instead of holding 
a college education in high regard, 
cheating is freeh" acknowledged at a 
majorit}' of the colleges. However, 
for the past several years there has 
been a core of students on campus who 
have been vitally interested in the es- 
tablishment of an academic honor sys- 
tem. It's a difficult job and has taken 
a great deal of time and patience on 
the part of a few people. The proj- 
ect has reached a temporary standstill, 
but has by no means been abandoned. 
This is further evidence of the attempt 
of the University to redirect the val- 
ues of the students, to develop a con- 
cern for the values held important in 
the University, and to strengthen the 
regard for a liberal arts education. 

Bucknell stands at approximately the 
center of the spectrum of values, but 
has a strong potentiality for strength- 
ening and redirecting the values of its 
students. W'e hear every day the cry 
against conformity, for it has been 
pointed out that the conformists, who 
are in the majority, almost always seem 
to elect a non-conformist for a leader — 
someone who is different and who is 
not afraid to stand by his or her con- 
victions. But college should be a hu- 
manizing experience where people 
learn mutual respect. This is not con- 
formity ; it is developing an interest in 
others for themselves, for this is the 
basis of a strong society. The redirec- 
tion of our values in this manner, which 
generallv begins in college, must stay 
with us for life. 



A review of selected items of interest 
concerning people, events and important 
developments at Bucknell University. 


EW MEN have left so many building 
lemorials to their service for Buck- 
ell University as Frank E. Burpee, 
rofessor of mechanical engineering, 
Tieritus, who passed away in Lewis- 
urg on Saturday, November 29, 1958. 
Professor Burpee was Bucknell's 
rst superintendent of buildings and 
rounds and directed the construction 
f many important units of the Uni- 
ersity's physical plant, including Hunt 
lall. ■ 

Professor Burpee was born on May 
(), 1872, at Beloit, Kansas, and grad- 
ated from Bucknell University in 
901. He took his Master of Arts de- 
ree at Bucknell, and later did grad- 
;-ate work at the University of Mich- 
■^an and the University of Chicago. 
,'rior to his appointment in 1912 as 
'rofessor of mechanical engineering, 
' e had taught Latin and Greek in the 
Id Bucknell Academy and mathe- 
latics at the College. He retired from 
■caching in 1937 after a career of 
kventy-five years as professor and su- 
pervisor of the University's buildings 
nd grounds. He continued to serve 
. s superintendent of buildings and 
rounds until his retirement in 1944. 

He was responsible for the develop- 
lent of the University golf course and 
I'as a member of the council which di- 
jccted Bucknell's athletic program. Ac- 
ively interested in the Bison Club from 
ts earliest beginnings, Dr. Burpee was 
he recipient of the first membership 
ard in the organization. He was for 
nany years a member of the Lewisburg 
borough Council, served as it presi- 
lent, and also as Burgess of Lewis- 
lurg. He was also founder and presi- 
lent of the Lewisburg Motor Club, 
)resident of the Lewisburg Rotary 
'lub, and an active member of the Wil- 
iani Cameron Fire Company. 

In 1905 he married the former Pearl 
.. Smith of Youngsville, Pennsylva- 
lia, whose death occurred in 1949. He 
■^ survived by three sisters, one of 
vhom, Mrs. Cora Braymer, made her 
;iome with her brother in Lewisburg ; 
by a daughter, Mrs. John H. Kinsloe 
[Evelyn Mae Burpee '31) of Mount 
iJnion ; a son, Stanley Burpee '35 of 
^jreene, New York ; and four grand-

tober 9 issue of The Journal of Phil- 

The full paper, of which this abstract 
is a summary, was read by Dr. Butts 
at the fifty-fifth annual meeting of the 
American Philosophical Association, 
Eastern Division, at the University of 
Vermont, December 27-29, 1958. The 
paper attempts to show that the philo-

The current issue of The College 
English Association Critic contains an 
essay, "Poems Pickled in Anthological 
Brine," by Professor Harry R. Gar- 
vin of the Department of English. 

Dr. Garvin points out that famous 
poems have a ready-made audience 
with appreciations and that readers, es- 
pecially professors, often lose their first 
vibrant impressions of widely antholo- 
gized poems. After explaining the 
reasons for the failure in sensitiveness 
toward such poems, the author points 
out a variety of ways b}^ which profes- 
sors and critics may overcome the dan- 
gers of this insentiveness. The author 
illustrates his points by referring to 
his own experiences with specific 

Five members of the Bucknell Univer- 
sity faculty attended the annual fall 
conference of the Pennsylvania De- 
partment of Higher Education. Mem- 
bers attending included Dr. Frank C. 
Abbott, assistant dean of the Univer- 
sity, and Professors Harry R. Garvin, 
James A. Gathings, Walter H. Sau- 
vain and Manning A. Smith. Dr. Ab- 
bott served as analyst to the group of 
teachers in the social science depart- 
ment who discussed means of develop- 
ing greater quality in their teaching 
field. Dr. Sauvain is currently serving 
as vice president of the Department 
of Higher Education and is also presi- 
dent of its college and university sec- 
tions. Dr. Sauvain summarized the 
conference at its group session. 

Four members of the facultv in 
the Department of Music at Bucknell 
played prominent roles in the perform- 
ance of "The Messiah" when the Buck- 
nell Mixed Chorus and Symphony Or- 

chestra presented Handel's famous ora- 
torio in the Forum in Harrisburg. The 
Bucknell group appeared in concert at 
the invitation of the Pennsylvania Mu- 
sic Educators Association which held 
its annual convention in the state capi- 
tol. Performance of the oratorio was 
a highlight of the convention and at- 
tracted more than 1000 music educa- 
tors. Professor Darina J. Tuhy was 
the piano accompanist, while Professor 
Allen W. Flock conducted the oratorio. 
Professor Jack S. Crim was the tenor 
soloist, and Professor E. Lindsey Mer- 
rill was the director of the 40-piece 

Establishment of a memorial 
AWARD in tribute to the late Melicent 
Melrose, instructor in voice, emerita, at 
Bucknell University, was recently an- 
nounced by Psi Chapter of Mu Phi Ep- 
silon, national professional music so- 
rority, of which the beloved Bucknell 
teacher had long been a member. 

Designed to recognize scholastic 
achievement, the award will be made 
annually to the member of Psi Chapter 
who has achieved the highest grade 
average for the year. It will consist 
of a plaque bearing the recipient's name 
and a pendant with a sorority seal. 


A capacity crowd of more than 2500 
jammed Davis Gymnasium on Novem- 
ber 10, to give an attentive and en- 
thusiastic reception to a concert by the 
Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra con- 
ducted by William Steinberg. 

Sponsored by the Bucknell Artist 
Series, this appearance of the Pitts- 
burgh Symphony Orchestra was the 
first of four programs to be presented 
during the 1958-59 season. The next 
presentation will be the Curtis String 
Quartet with Rey de la Torre, classic 
guitarist, on January 15, 1959. Emlyn 
\\'illiams, dramatist, will present an 
evening of Dylan Thomas on Febru- 
ary 9, and Soidima Stravinsky, pianist, 
will appear on IMarch 10. 


The university was host recently to 
nearly 100 area businessmen \vho at- 
tended the Small Business Conference 
sponsored by the Bucknell Business 
Forum and ten other groups. 

Designed to assist the small busi- 
nessman with his special problems, the

Conference featured both afternoon and 
evening sessions. Five guest speakers 
interested in the development and suc- 
cess of small business fields took part 
in the program. They included rep- 
resentatives of Dun and Bradstreet, 
the Federal Reserve Bank, the Small 
Business Administration, and the 
Pennsylvania Department of Com- 

Professor Neil F. Shiffler arranged 
the program of the conference. 

The enrollment at bucknell uni- 
versity for the fall term reached a total 
of 2,198 students, approximately 100 
more than the number enrolled last 
fall. Undergraduates number 2,081 
and 117 are special and graduate stu- 
dents. Included in the student body 
are 132 veterans. Men continue to out 
number women by nearly two to one. 
The undergraduate body includes 1,306 
men and 775 women. 

Bucknell university's current fresh- 
man class includes 17 students who 
were valedictorians of their high school 

An exhibition of nineteenth cen- 
tury American painting, one of the 
most important of its kind ever held at 
Bucknell University, was shown in the 
galleries of the Ellen Clarke Bertrand 
Library during November. 

The exhibit consisted of paintings by 
Pennsylvania-born John F. Francis 
(1808-1886), who has been termed the 
most able of the mid-century still-life 
artists, and represents the first modern 
exhibit of his work ever held. 

At the opening of the exhibit. Dr. 
Harold E. Dickson, professor of fine 
arts at the Pennsylvania State Univer- 
sity, lectured on Francis and his place 
in American painting. Dr. Dickson, a 
noted authority on American art, is 
the author of A Hundred Pennsylvania 
Buildings and other books and articles 
in his special field. 

The Francis exhibit, sponsored by 
the Friends of the Library and the De- 
partment of Art, was assembled and 
directed by Mrs. Blanche K. Baugh- 
man, librarian in charge of exhibits 
and archives at Bucknell. According 
to Mrs. Baughman, the search for the 
32 paintings that made up the exhibit 
had been under way for the past three 

The archives of bucknell univer- 
sity have recently received some books, 
papers and memorabilia that once be- 
longed to Dr. George GrofT, a former 
distinguished member of the Bucknell 

Dr. Groff was professor of natural 
sciences at Bucknell from 1879 to 1910 
and was acting president of the Uni- 
versity in 1888-1889. It was through 
Dr. Groff's eflforts that the University 
opened its doors to women in 1883. 
President David Jayne Hill said pub- 
licly of Dr. Groff that he was the father 
of coeducation at Bucknell. 

An item of interest concerning Dr. 
Groff's life is the fact that he was chief 
sanitation officer for the Pennsylvania 
State Board of Health during the 
Johnstown flood of 1889. Interesting 
records of the flood and his part in 
this disaster are included in the mate- 
rial given to the library. 

Alumni are reminded to send mate- 
rial relative to Bucknell history to Dr. 

J. Orin Oliphant, University Archiv- 

Dr. Richard L. Green, professor of 
English at Wesleyan University and 
former president of Wells College, 
presented the Harry Walcott Robbins 
Memorial Lecture to a group of nearly 
200 students and teachers in the Olin 
Science Auditorium on November 21. 

Dedication of coleman hall, the 
University's largest classroom building 
now nearing completion, has been set 
for Saturday, January 17. At a special 
convocation that morning, the building 
will be formally presented to the Uni- 
versity by Dr. Charles L. Horn, presi- 
dent of the F. W. Olin Foundation, 
which made a grant of $1,475,000 for 
its construction. 

William R. White '26, chairman of 
the Board of Trustees, will accept the 
building for the University and Presi- 
dent Merle M. Odgers will make the 
principal address. 

An added highlight of the convoca- 
tion will be the awarding of honorary 
degrees to Louis W. Robey '04, former 
University trustee ; Rabbi Samuel H. 
Markowitz '14 of the Beth David Re- 
form congregation of Philadelphia: 
and Jens Frederick Larson, University 

Coleman Hall is named in tribute 
to Dr. William H. Coleman, vice 
president and dean of the University, 
emeritus, who served Bucknell for 
thirty-four 3'ears as a teacher and ad- 
ministrator prior to his retirement last 

A report of the dedication will be

The call was enough to pull the rug out from under 
any team, since it denied Bucknell of a pass interception 
which would have given them the ball at a time when 
their own passing attack had begun to click consistently. 
The real indignity, though, was that no contact was made 
between the Bucknell defender and his man, as movies 
later verified. 

Delaware scored twice in a minute to secure the vic- 
tory, then Bucknell drove 74 yards in 13 plays to score, 
with Apgar slashing through for his first, and well de- 
served, six pointer of the year. Delaware's superior depth 
and ground attack finally turned the trick, but the score 
should have been much closer. 

Buffalo 38, Bucknell — The biggest and best team 
Bucknell met. The Bulls just trampled the Bisons, and 
there's reall}' no more to say ! 

Honors : Terhes finished first in the Middle Atlantic 
Conference in passing and total oft'ense, and Jack Eachus 
was the number one pass receiver. Brady was third and 
Apgar fourth in receptions, and Apgar fifth in punting. 

In the E. C. A. C, Terhes was second in passing and 

total oft'ense in the small college bracket, Eachus and 
Brady third and fourth in receptions, and Bucknell third 
in passing offense. 

Mike Hixson, Paul Terhes, and George Salinger all 
received honorable mention on the All East team, small 
college division. 


Hank Peters' hooters were hampered by inexperienced 
forwards but the defense was excellent, enabling Bucknell 
to scare man)' more experienced elevens and beat some, 
too, including Lycoming, 3-1, Gettysburg, 4-1, and ]\Iuhl- 
enberg, 4-1. 

They lost 2-1 to Wilkes in a double overtime, held 
Navy to 0-0 at half before bowing to depth, 4-0, and did 
not disgrace themselves in losing to Elizabethtown, 5-2, 
and Drexel, 6-2. 

Bill Sharp was brilliant at goalie all year. Other stand- 
outs besides the trio mentioned earlier included Jim Balta 
and Tom Clarke, the co-captains, who paced the fine 
Bison defense. 

The Bison scoring punch should be much stronger ir 
1959, and Peters is optimistic about making another bid; 
for a winning soccer season at Bucknell.

minutes of the meetings 

'resent at the semi-annual meeting of the Board of Directors of the General Alumni Association on October 24, 1958, 
'■ere: President Charles F. Fox, Jr.; First Vice President Robert W. Dill; Second Vice President Mrs. Dorothy 

.cmon Bailey ; Directors : Charles T. Farrow, Allen F. Jones, Mrs. Amorita Sesinger Copeland, Donald W. Glover, 
I'honias W. Speck, William D. Golightly, Mrs. Katharine Graham Showalter, Wilmer D. Greulich, Eugene P. Bertin, 
''.linor Childs and Robert H. Taylor; Alumni Secretary John H. Shott and Assistant Alumni Secretary C. Bruce 

Jossiter. These points were discussed ... 








Bob Dill, Board representative on the Athletic Advisory Committee presented football 
schedules for 1959, 1960, and 1961 . . . Cam Rutledge suggested the Alumni Asso- 
ciation provide a trophy for football to be known as the "Middle Atlantic Conference 
Trophy, University Division." Bob Dill raised the question of whether or not this 
association had actually been formally set up. 

Board members studied a list of 53 names of alumni suggested for consideration as 
Alumni Award winners and removed names of 16 persons who have already been hon- 
ored in other ways. 

From a list of 44 suggested candidates, 6 prospective and 5 alternate candidates were 
selected to be voted on at the Annual Assembly next June. 

Three alumni suggested changes in the method of electing the Alumni Trustees an- 
nually to avoid the embarrassment of having excellent prospective trustees defeated in 
an election . . . suggestions : ( a ) have the alumni president automatically elevated to 
the alumni trusteeship; (b) discontinue the alumni-wide balloting and have the Board 
of Directors select the Alumni Trustee . . . objections: (a) Alumni Trustee must be 
selected annually whereas alumni presidents generally serve two or more years; (b) 
alumni-wide balloting is more democratic — adoption of this plan would place the selec- 
tion in the hands of a very few people. Secretary Shott suggested that alumni be asked 
to express their pro and con opinion on the subject. (Editor's Note: Send your opin- 
ion to the editor.) 

Fund Director Shott made a detailed report of personal solicitation showing that where 
personal solicitation was held, the percentage of solicitation was greatly increased. He 
pointed out the need for expansion of the program in all alumni areas in the Spring 
of 1959 in order that the fund record this year may reach a new high figure. 

Discussed were co-ordination and merging of the Alumni Fund with the Dual Devel- 
opment Capital Campaign in the fund year 1959-60 (after the current fund year ends) 
. . . unanimously passed a resolution co-ordinating the two efforts (copy of complete

day afternoon, October 11, thirty-eight 
Bucknellians along with 92,000 other 
football fans, attended a great football 
game at Michigan Stadium in Ann Ar- 
bor between the University of Michi- 
gan and Navy. As alwa3'S, our Buck- 
nell friends at the University of Mich- 
igan furnished us with excellent 50 
vard line seats for this colorful game. 
It was a very good game with Navy 
edging out Michigan 20-14 with a last 
period touchdown pass. 

Unfortunately, our '"after the game 
party" that we've held the past several 
years could not be arranged. How- 
ever, most of the Bucknellians made 
a full day of it by having several small- 
er informal dinner get-togethers in 
and around Ann Arbor. 

The following officers will continue 
serving their present positions for the 
coming year — Bruce M. Scott '51, 
president; Evan R. Thomas '31, vice 
president, and John Kingsbury '42,

Bucknell Alumni Club of Northern 
New Jersey held a Bison roundup and 
buffet dinner following the Bucknell- 
Rutgers football game on October 18. 
Although the Scarlet Knights of Rut- 
gers were victorious on the gridiron, 
150 loyal Bison rooters crowded into 
Sallv's Restaurant following the game 
for the buffet. Several alumni were 
introduced, one of whom was Andy 
Mathieson '20, University Trustee, 
who spoke briefly. "Buck" Shott, 
Alumni Secretary, brought campus 
greetings. To sum up the meeting, 
I can only sa\- that the buffet was ex- 
cellent, the talk abundant, and those 
in attendance agreed that we should 
do it again.

lNUARY 1959 


The dual DE\'EL0PMENT FUND, so named be- 
cause it is for both endowment and building, is now going 
through steps preliminary to a general campaign, includ- 
ing enlistment of top leadership. 

A "Who's \\'ho" of those accepting chairmanships 
follows, although further appointments are to be made, 
and a National Advisory Committee is in process of for- 
mation. Co-chairmen Harry G. Schad and Kenneth \\'. 
Slifer '26 declare themselves well satisfied with progress 
to date. "The leadership being enrolled," they say, "is 
strong and capable. We are laying exactly the kind of 
foundation we need for a successful campaign, ^^'e are 
counting on alumni and friends to supply the same kind 

of leadership at all levels of the organization which wi 
must create to ensure the outcome we all want — uncon 
ditional victory." 

The campaign schedule calls for solicitation of Advanci 
Gifts from the present to June 30, 1959. Beginning in th' 
fall of 1959, the general effort will be carried on amonj 
alumni, parents, friends, on the campus, and in the area 
close to the Universit}'. 

In the statement "The Bucknell of Tomorrow", mailei 
to all alumni. President Od.gers outlines the future o 
the University, and shows the place which the DUAl 
DEVELOPMENT FUND has in "placing Bucknell ii 
a higher orbit" in American education. 



Honorar\ Chairman 

Crusader for scholarship, patron of the arts, benefactor of Bucknell — these 
are the terms by which Rush H. Kress, honorary chairman of the Board of Trus- 
tees, is known to thousands of Bucknellians. During his long career, culminating 
in his present posts of honorary chairman of the Board of the Samuel H. Kress 
Company and president of the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, he has been ever 
faithful and generous in his support of the college from which he was graduated 
with honors in 1900. A trustee of long-standing, he was made honorary chairman 
in 1946 in recognition of the unique place which he holds in the history and 
heart of Bucknell. 



Honorary Chairman 

Principal donor of the University's beautiful library which bears her name, 
Mrs. Ellen Clarke Bertrand of New York City has won deserved acclaim as "a 
true friend of youth and of higher education." In 1950 she was elected to the 
Board of Trustees of which her late husband had also been a member. Her under- 
standing of Bucknell's purposes and needs has been quietly but efifectively expressed 
in her generous gifts for liljrary endowment. In appreciation of her abiding interest 
in the University's welfare, Bucknell conferred upon her the honorary degree of 
Doctor of Humanities in 1954. 


Honorary Chairman 

For nearly 30 years Robert L. Rooke '13, of Westfield, N. J., has helped 
guide the destiny of his alma mater, giving generously of both his talents and his 
resources. Member of the Board of Trustees since 1930, he now fills the im- 
portant posts of chairman of the executive and investment committees and secre- 
tary of the Board. Co-donor of the Freas-Rooke Swimming Pool, he has made 
numerous other substantial gifts to the University. A grateful alma mater be- 
stowed upon him the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws in 1951. Mr. Rooke 
is a partner of the firm of Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner, and Smith. 


Honorary Chairman 

Builder, industrialist, and public servant, Andrew J. Sordoni of Wilkes- 
Barre, head of the impressive Sordoni Enterprises, has been donating both pro- 
fessional advice and financial support to Bucknell for over 30 years. A trustee of 
the University since 1928, he has long served on the committee on buildings and 
grounds and in a period marked by great expansion of our physical plant has 
been an important contributor to his adopted alma mater. Bucknell paid tribute 
to him in 1950 as "an organizing genius and gentleman" b}- awarding him the 
honorary degree of Doctor of Laws. 


General Co-Chairman 

An outstanding leader in maritime and civic circles in Philadelphia and a 
nationally-known expert in transportation, Harry G. Schad, vice-president of the 
Atlantic Refining Company, added still another major interest in his busy life 
with his election as a Bucknell trustee in 1952. For his notable accomplishments 
and his numerous contributions to the economic growth of the Delaware Valley, 
he has received many awards and citations, including the Award of Merit from his 
alma mater, Girard College. His talent for "quiet-clear-headed administration 
and far-sighted, constructive organization" was recognized by Bucknell last June, 
when the University awarded him the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws. 

General Co-Chainiian 

As a trustee of the University, Kenneth W. Slifer '26, of Woodbury, N. J-, 
is following the family pattern of service to Bucknell established by his great- 
grandfather, who was a member of the college's first Board of Trustees. Through- 
out the years Mr. Slifer has served in many important alumni posts, including 
that of chairman of the Alumni Fund, and in 1951 was the recipient of the L'niver- 
sity's first Alumni Service Award. Now chairman of the trustee committee on 
public relations, he is making still another valuable contribution, despite his busy 
schedule as vice president of N. W. Ayer & Son, Inc., in Philadelphia.

Chairman, Initial Gijts Committee 

After serving two terms as governor of Maine, Horace A. Hildreth became 
Bucknell's ninth president in 1949, bringing to the post his wide experience in 
public affairs, a rare understanding of young people and their needs, and the 
devotion to integrity which has marked his career since its start. In 1953 he 
became the United States Ambassador to Pakistan and filled that difficult diplo- 
matic assignment until 1957. He has expressed his continuing interest in Bucknell 
through his generous gifts and his valuable services as a trustee of the University 
which conferred the honorary degree of Doctor of Civil Law upon him in 1956. 


Chairman, Special Gifts Committee 

Shortly after becoming a trustee of his alma mater three years ago, R. 
Henry Coleman '29, of Fairfield, Conn., was made chairman of the newly-created 
committee on development, but his efTorts on behalf of the University were already 
well begun. Through him, officials of the Olin Foundation were initially ac- 
quainted with the University's needs by his father. Dean William H. Coleman, 
and their gifts of two major buildings followed. Employed shortly after gradua- 
tion by E. L DuPont de Nemours and Company, he was later transferred to 
Remington Arms Company, Inc., of which he is now vice president and assistant 
general manager. 


Chairman of the Board of Trustees Steering Committee 

Vice president of the Guaranty Trust Company of New York, William R. 
White '26, has been a member of the Board of Trustees for two decades and its 
chairman since 1957. Several years after his graduation from Columbia's Law 
School, he was named superintendent of banks for the State of New York, the 
youngest official ever appointed to that important post in which he served for 
seven years. In 1942 he joined the banking firm with which he is now associated. 
His services on numerous trustee committees, including those on investment and 
finances, have been of inestimable value to this institution. 


Fund Treasurer 

When his son and daughter were enrolled at Bucknell, A. Guy Freas, presi- 
dent of the Federal Paper Board Company at Bogota, N. J., became deeply 
interested in the University's problems. This interest led to his becoming a trustee 
in 1949 and co-donor of the Freas-Rooke Swimming Pool several years later. 
Now retired from the presidency of his firm, Mr. Freas is continuing his generous 
interest in Bucknell as chairman of the trustee committee on buildings and grounds. 
In 1957 he was awarded the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws by an appreciative 


Chairman, Corporate Gifts Committee 

Two years after he became a trustee of Bucknell, Paul L. Troast, of Clifton, 
N. J., was chosen New Jersey's outstanding citizen of 1951 and was also named 
New Jersey's engineer of the year, in recognition of his outstanding performance 
as chairman of the New Jersey Turnpike Authority. The well-known president 
of the Mahony-Troast Construction Company, father of two Bucknell graduates, 
received the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws from Bucknell University in 1952. 
His many services to the college have included chairmanship of the finance com- 
mittee for the building of Swartz Hall. 



Chairman, General Alumni 

The business acumen and sound judgment displayed by Andrew R. Mathie- 
son '20, of Pittsburgh, president of the U. S. Steel and Carnegie Pension Fund, 
have been matched by his warm loyalty and devoted service to Bucknell over the 
past 38 years. During this time he has filled many important alumni posts, in- 
cluding those of chairman of the Alumni Fund and alumni trustee. Re-elected 
to the Board of Trustees in 1951, he is currently serving as chairman of both the 
committee on athletics and the committee on alumni relations, and is a member 
of several other trustee committees as well. 


Chairman, Evaluation Committee 

The proximity of his home in Milton, Pa., to the campus enables Berkeley 
V. Hastings, class of 1913, to follow closely the progress of his alma mater of 
which he has been a trustee since 1935. President of the insurance and real 
estate firm of Hastings and Hastings, he serves his community in a wide variety 
of interests and affairs, but retains his deepest concern for the college and its 
program. A member of several trustee committees, he devotes much of his time 
to consideration of the University's problems and its plans for the future. 


Chairman, Public Relations Committee 

In his services for the Dual Development Fund, Donald H. Sholl '42, of 
Haddonfield, N. J., is continuing the tradition of service to Bucknell established 
by his family many years ago. As a worker for his class fund and for other 
alumni projects, he has displayed boundless energy and contagious enthusiasm, 
qualities which he evidences also in his duties as a supervisor in the copy depart- 
ment of the advertising firm of N. W. Ayer & Son, Inc., with which he became 
associated shortly after graduation from college. 


Vice -Chairman, Public Relations Committee 

During his college days Jack D. Bozarth '50, of Haddonfield, N. J., was 
known to his fellow students for his friendly personality and his extensive journal- 
istic endeavors, including his able editorship of The Bucknellian. These special 
qualifications, plus his undergraduate education in commerce and finance, led 
almost inevitably to his entry into advertising and eventually to the firm which has 
attracted so many Bucknellians, N. W. Ayer & Son, Inc., where he is now an 
account executive. 


Faculty Representative in Steering Committee 

In his 38 years as a member of the Bucknell faculty, John S. Gold 'IS, 
professor of mathematics, has worked consistently for the best interests of both 
his students and his colleagues. As president of the campus chapter of Sigma 
Xi, honorary science organization, and as a national ofiicer of Pi AIu Epsilon, 
honorary mathematics fraternity, he contributed much to the advancement of his 
profession. Active in alumni affairs, he has also taken a leading role in religious 
and civic work in his community. Currently he is serving as the faculty's repre- 
sentative at the meetings of the Board of Trustees.

A Report on the Bucknell Alumni Questionnaire 


In September, 1958, a questionnaire 
was sent to 1,000 Bucknell alumni so- 
liciting their opinions on various points. 
The information was sought as a guide 
to University planning. The sampling 
of opinion was related to the broad 
study of the Development Program 
and of University needs made by the 
John Price Jones Company, Inc. of 
New York City, consultants to philan- 
thropic institutions in public relations 
and fund-raising. 

Names were chosen at random from 
the alumni file of about 17,000 names. 
Approximately every sixteenth card 
was turned up for inclusion in the list 
of those who were to receive the ques- 

Thirty-two per cent of those who 
did receive it filled out the form and 
returned it. In the experience of the 
Jones Company, this is above average 
for colleges. The percentage return 
is also considered as being valid for 
an accurate sampling of opinion. 

The returns have been tabulated. 
The results are presented here for the 
enlightenment of those who have an

16 — Among individuals and groups 
vou know, how is Bucknell thought 

50%,— First Rate 
25% — Second Rate 
0%— Poor 
25%, — No answer 
Do vou think that most people do 
not knoiv enough about Bucknell 
to have an opinion? 
52.5%— Yes 
47.5% — No answer 
For what is Bucknell best known? 
This question brought forth a variety 
of answers so great as to defy statistical 
analysis. The query overlaps, also, 
Question 20 in which the alumnus is 
asked to sum up the principal charac- 
teristics of the University. 

Engineering was mentioned most 
frequently, with high scholastic record 
following. It is evident that Christy 
Mathewson and the great athletic teams 
of former days linger in the minds of 
alumni. Among educational programs, 
those receiving mention (in addition to 
Engineering) were the pre-medical 
course, science teaching, and the De- 
partment of Education. 

Beyond the items listed above, there 
was a large volume of individual com- 
ment falling into no readily defined 

17 — In the event of a general capital 
gifts campaign, would you volun- 
teer to join a Committee to seek 
gifts from alumni and others? 
65%— No 
22%o— Yes 
13% — No answer 
In the experience of the Jones Com- 
pany, this is a little better than av- 
erage response. Assuming that it holds, 
a Development Campaign would be 
well staffed. 

18 — Has Bucknell failed or is she fail- 
ing in any significant way? 
72%— No 

13%— Yes 

15% — No answer 
The criticism of the 13% who felt 
that Bucknell was failing was directed 
mainly against campus life, choice of 
students, curriculum, faculty, religious 
life and student housing. 

19 — Do you think that Bucknell stu- 
dents should be: 
Required to work harder? 
80%— Yes 
20%— No 
Allowed to work less hard? 

100%— No 
Required to maintain present stand- 

90%— Yes 
10%— No 
20 — Sum up in fewest possible words: 
the one, two or three chief charac- 
teristics of Bucknell. 

Comment arising from this request 
was again very scattered, with many 
individual expressions of opinion which 
defy statistical tabulation. 

But it is clear that the friendly at- 
mosphere of Bucknell has made a deep 
impression on alumni, since this char- 
acteristic was mentioned more fre- 
quently than any other. "Beautiful 
campus" was the comment of many, as 
well as "small size", this last phrase 
being used in a favorable sense. The 
words "well-rounded" also appear fre- 

Where faculty and instructional pro- 
grams are mentioned, favorable com- 
ment is on a far larger scale than un- 

However, there are some who feel 
that the pressure to conform is too 
strong, and the phrase "country club" 
crops up now and then. 

All in all, it is clear that those an- 
swering the questionnaire constitute a 
vigorous group of people who are ex- 
pressing honest opinion. In total, fa- 
vorable comment outweighs that which 
is not complimentary. A detailed study 
by administrators and faculty will un- 
doubtedh- reveal that some opinions 
have a realistic bearing upon Univer- 
sity operations. 

Some Pointed Comments From the Questionnaire 

(The above report gives a balanced appraisal of Bucknell by its Alumni) 

"A small town university which to all outward ap- 

rances prefers to remain anonymous." (Alumnus 1948) 

"A small, well-organized university which has man- 

ed to teach a course not listed in the catalog: 'How to 

St along with people'." (Alumnus 1951) 

I "A good small school where students can be individuals 

' d not numbers." (Alumna 1952) 

"University too small — campus life too dull — should 
„ow with nation to reach an enrollment of 7,000-8,000." 
Alumnus 1944) 

". . . Large enough to be worthwhile in general areas, 
d small enough to be cordial." (Alumnus 1955) 

"Minor league Princeton, aspiring to be major league." 
Uumnus 1950) 

;.NUARY 1959 

"I'd like to see a greater teacher-pupil ratio. I'd like 
people to regard Bucknell as they do Swarthmore and 
Haverford." (Alumna 1943) 

". . . More people with academic prowess will improve 
Bucknell's reputation long after the football game is fin- 
ished." (Alumnus 1956) 

"Too much emphasis is placed on secondary school rec- 
ords." (Alumnus 1915) 

"Emphasis on religion is good and uni(|ue." (Ahunnus 

"Clean, quiet — 'set apart'." (Alumnus 1945) 

"Rich in tradition and spirit." (Alumnus 1954) 



Program will preserve continuity 
of the Alumni Annual-Giving Fund 

"What happens to the Bucknell 
Alumni Annual-Giving Fund during 
the Dual Development Capital Cam- 
paign?" is a question that will arise 
in the minds of many alumni, especial- 
Iv those who have established a pro- 
gram of annual-giving. The quick an- 
swer is that the Annual Alumni Fund 
will be merged with the Capital Cam- 
paign during the active personal solici- 
tation phase of the Campaign. You will 
be interested in the background of 
study by the Board of Directors of the 
General Alumni Association and by 
other alumni leaders that resulted in 
this decision. 


At the Board of Directors meeting 
last June announcement was made that 
a fund raising counsel had been ap- 
proached to investigate the advisabil- 
ity, feasibility, and cost of a profes- 
sionally directed survey to determine 
objectively the goals, timing and direc- 
tion of a possible capital funds cam- 
paign toward the achievement of our 
Capital Development Programings. 
The professionally-conducted survey 
included a questionnaire inquiry to 
about 1000 Bucknell Alumni and the 
results (see page 18) indicated alumni 
agreement and support of a Capital 
Gifts Program. The results of the 
survey were reported at the Second 
Annual Workshop held early in Octo- 
ber which was attended by six mem- 
bers of the Board of Directors. At 
this preliminary meeting several hours 
were devoted to a discussion of ways 
of co-ordinating the Alumni Fund with 
a Capital Gifts Campaign. Although 
there were some questions on imple- 
mentation and details, the project was 
endorsed by those in attendance. It 
became clear that an active solicitation 
for the Alumni Fund on a normal basis 
during a capital campaign would be 
unwise, resulting in considerable con- 
flict and confusion. 

Following the discussion at the 
Workshop, other members of the 
Board of Directors by personal visit 
were made aware of the projected 

At the semi-annual business meeting 
of the Board of Directors of Alumni 
Association held on the campus Home- 
coming Weekend, the Board fully en- 
dorsed the capital gifts campaign and 
unanimously adopted a resolution de- 
tailing the major components of the 
merged eftort. 


From the resolution it will be noted 
that solicitation of most of the Gen- 


WHEREAS, Bucknell University is about to begin a capital gifts endowment 
and building campaign to be knozvn as the "BUCKNELL DUAL DEVELOPMENT 
FUND," and 

WHEREAS, active Alumni Fund solicitation during the conduct of a capital 
gifts campaign would result in dual solicitation and confusion, 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that during the period of active 
solicitation of the General Alumni Body on behalf of the capital gifts campaign, the 
Bucknell Alumni Fund and the capital gifts campaign be co-ordinated under a plan 
-with the following major components : 

1. According to the capital gifts campaign timetable, most alumni ivill be ap- 
proached for capital campaign gifts during the period from September 8, 1959, 
until December 31, 1959. 

2. Since intensive solicitation of the General Alumni Body 'will not be conducted 
in the capital gifts campaign until September 1959, the regular Alumni Fund 
program of appeals bx letter and personal solicitation will be conducted until 
June 30, 1959 

3. Contributions of cash or pledge to the capital gifts campaign, -whenei'er made, 
will count also as Alumni Fund contributions for "Roll of Contributor" and 
"Continuity or Regularity" purposes in the 1959-60, 1960-61, and 1961-62 fund 
years and for any subsequent year in which payments on capital gifts cam- 
paign pledges are being made. However, alumni not contributing to the capi- 
tal gifts campaign shall be solicited for the Alumni Fund beginning in the 
Fund year 1960-61. 

4. It is not expected that there will be a formal alumni annual-giving fund 
program during the Fund year 1959-60, as this is the period during which 
most alumni 'will be actively at work participating in the capital gifts cam- 

5. Some receipts from the capital gifts campaign will he used to provide Buck- 
nell 'with current operating funds during the three-year pledge period of the 
capital gifts campaign.

The General Alumni Association, Bucknell University 

eral Alumni body for Capital purposes 
will not begin until after the current 
fund year ends. Consequently, the 
goal for our current 1958-59 Alumni 
Fund year (ending June 30, 1959) is 
to provide^ once again, those funds so 
essential for the daily maintenance and 
strengthening of all of Bucknell's pro- 
grams. Our Annual Alumni Fund 
gifts constitute that precious "living 
endowment" which helps meet the ur- 
gent needs for faculty salaries, scholar- 
ship aid, plant maintenance, instruc- 
tional aids, and also provides those day- 
to-day items and intangible services 
which help make Bucknell a better 
University for its students, its faculty 
and its alumni. 

The people who will assure the 
achievement of this goal are you, the 
members of Bucknell's family. Par- 
ticipation in the 1958-59 Alumni Fund 
bv each of you will be the determining 
factor of our 1958-59 Alumni Fund 
effort. The Alumni Fund Committee 
is confident that each Bucknellian will 
do his or her part for the capital gifts 
campaign when called upon, but for this 
fund year, the job for most of us is to 
provide the annual strength needed by 
Bucknell through our Alumni Fund 

gift. To ease up on fund giving thi 
\-ear in anticipation of the capital cam 
paign to be conducted next year is sini 
ply short-changing the current budge 
operations of the University. In fact 
it is the hope of the fund workers tha 
during the current year Alumni Fun( 
gifts will be made by at least 50% o 
the Bucknell family. 

LOOKING TO 1959-1960 

During the fiscal year 1959-196 
(which begins on July 1, 1959) th 
majority of Bucknellians will be per 
sonally visited by a Bucknellian capi 
tal gifts solicitor for a substantia 
pledge to be paid over a three-year ta: 
period. Such contribution, cash o 
pledge, to the capital gifts campaigi 
whenever made, will count also as a 
alumni fund contribution for "Roll c 
Contributor" and "Continuity or Reg 
ularity" purposes in the 1959-60, 196C 
61, and 1961-62 fund years. Thus tli 
integrity of the Alumni Annual-Givin 
Fund will be maintained and some rt 
ceipts from the capital gifts campaig 
will be used to provide Bucknell wit 
current operating funds during th 
three-year pledge period of the capit; 
gift campaign.

It is with sorrow that we have to report 
the death of Charles S. Marsh of our 1905 
class. He died in October of cancer. He 
was a good man and is well remembered 
for his fine Christian character. He was 
an outstanding track man and won many 
honors for his class and for Bucknell 
University. He was known as "Speedy 
Marsh." Through the years he led an 
active life as a citizen in the church and in 
society. For the past few years he was 
much confined to his home in Tionesta. 

We are saddened by the death of our 
good friend and classmate. Rev. Francis 
L. McCauley, on April 8, 1958. While at 
Bucknell, Francis took an active part in 
the University Y. M. C. A. He was a 
member of the Mirror staff, the L'AGENDA 
board and the Debating Team and was 
president of the Athletic Association. 
After graduating from Bucknell cum laude 
he completed his education at Auburn and 
Union Theological Seminaries. As a 
Presbyterian minister he served in four 
pastorates in New York State and was 
moderator of the New York Synod.

Correction, please. Charley Potter's

reported. Instead, its publication date 
was November 19. It has a new title, 
too. The Great Religious Leaders. Beauti- 
fully printed by Simon and Schuster, it 
has already had a good advance sale. It 
is up-dated: Charley has kept in touch 
with archeological and historical advance 
of the recent past. Might be a good gift- 
book for that belated Christmas present 
you just remembered you must send. 

Your Florida correspondent has been 
delighted at the favorable response to his 
letter in Time for October 20. Some folks 
have even taken time to write him letters 
about it. Two of them were young Buck- 
nellians. Louise Graeff VanArsdale '29, 
who was a student of his a little while 
ago, and Leland Laning '14, who says I 
taught him German 'wa\' back when, 
specifically 47 years ago. What a memory 
he must have! I wonder how much of the 
German he remembers! 

Bucknellians do get around. We en-

For the Class of 1908 this has been an 
eventful year. From January to June we 
thought of little but plans for our 50th 
reunion at Bucknell. 

Finally it was June and just as fifty 
years ago — the Class of 1908 was in the 
limelight on the Bucknell campus. The 
excitement started with a successful sup- 
per party and came to a climax when fifty- 
six of us took our places at the Alumni 

From June to the present time, the 
enthusiastic letters of the class have been 
a great pleasure to the committee. I wish 
you all could read them. 

OUve Richards Landers is now in New 
York City and presently will be in Ocean 
Grove, N. J., for a few months — and then 
off to Dallas, Texas, to take charge of the 
sale of her property there. 

Beatrice Richards spent her customary 
two months in Maine this summer. In 
September she made a visit to NelUe 
Hayes Greenwood. 

The Charlie Bromleys vacationed in 
Canada this summer after our reunion. 

Victor B. Luchsinger, retired pubUcist, 

whom we were all glad to see at our 50th 
reunion, spent the summer months in a 
"shack," as he calls it, along the Susque- 
hanna near Tunkhannock. 

Clyde Hostetter writes from Winter 
Park, Fla., asking for the source of the 
quotations from Dr. Harris's Baccalau- 
reate Sermon to our class which appeared 
in our Fiftieth Reunion book. They were 
taken from the volume of Dr. Harris's 
addresses and biographical data, com- 
piled and edited by his daughter, Dr. 
Mary B. Harris '94, and published in 1926. 
This book is a wonderful volume and a 
valuable addition to the library of any 
who attended Bucknell during the thirty 
years of the presidency of Dr. John How- 
ard Harris '69. 

Although Harry Moriss (Shorts) Wal- 
ter '10 was graduated with another class, 
his ties to 1908, the class which introduced 
him to Bucknell, are still close. Novi' re- 
tired after a successful career as civil 
engineer, and living in New Jersey, 
"Shorts" eagerly read the Reunion Book 
of 1908 recently and had something to 
say about all of us. He regrets that he 
was not at the Reunion, and vows he'll 
be there for the 55th. 

Harry F. HarteU probably would have 
won the prize for coming the longest 
distance, had one such prize been offered 
at our SOth reunion. His home is in 
California. The Hartzells are used to 
traveling, however,_and had just returned 
from a 76-day cruise of the South Seas 
and the Orient before crossing the con- 
tinent for the reunion.

Charles C. Fries (Agnes Carswell '19) 
made their third trip to Japan where Dr. 
Fries, originator of the "oral approach" 
in foreign language training, was at work 
to complete the second volume of his 
text book on how to teach English to 
Japanese-speaking people. While there 
they joined with Mr. and Mrs. A. Cleve- 
land Conner '12 (Alberta Bronson '12) 
in conducting a Bucknell Alumni meet- 
ing at International House on April 22. 
Then on October 2, Dr. and Mrs. Fries 
sailed on the 6". 6". United States for sev- 
eral weeks in England where Dr. Fries 
will give a short series of lectures on 
linguistics at the University of London. 
When finished in England they will fly 
to Pakistan for two months where he will 
assist the University of Punjab and the 
University at Dacca with their linguistic 
problems and will consult with them on 
the teaching of foreign languages.

is the year in which the Class of 1909 of 
Bucknell University hopes to have the 
most significant celebration of its 54 years 
of existance — our Golden Anniversary. 
Significant because 87 of us are still alive 
to anticipate the pleasures and wakened 
memories that will be ours come June 5. 

6, 7 and 8. Such a day comes to most of 
us only once in a lifetime and suggests an

some of your time and a bit of j'our mon- 
ey? Pause and reflect. Come!

We couldn't see that she had changed i 
her face since our trip two years ago, bt 
did notice that she was not so witty an 
moved somewhat slower. However, sh 
is the most remarkable person I have ev(

launders the linen cloths and napkins, an 
sometimes climbs on chairs to wash wit 
dows when the girls aren't around. B(,

upstairs to turn back the silk coverlet 
Just before we left she went out in thj 
garden in the rain and came back wit 
three Christmas roses for me. 

It was a wonderful trip and we enjoyc 
every minute but didn't want Pop to sla 
too long because he would have bc-e 
spoiled among so many women. Wh

nostalgia. Pearl Ream Williams, Grace

lefonte for a few days and that he 
-ly enjoyed the mountains after all 
^e years in the plains. However now

nt of Dutch's life in our reunion book 
I'll just supplement it a bit. He mar- 
i Helen Wagner of Lewisburg in 1923. 

^IUARY 1959 

Helen died in 1948. In 1950 he married 
Marion L. Stein of Summerfield, N. J. 
After teaching science and math in sev- 
eral places, he came to Hillside in 1921 to 
teach chemistry and physics. He has re- 
mained there ever since and retired in 
1953 "by edict of the Board of Age." His 
wife teaches chemistry and biology in 
Newark, N. J., and so he has now taken 
on the task of washing, ironing, and 
cleaning, as well as the man's work 
around the house, inside and out. Right 
now he is organizing a 50th reunion of 
his high school class. He has also signed 
up to teach an extension course in educa- 
tion at Seton Hall this year. Dutch says 
"This summer I spent about four weeks 
in Eagles Mere at the Hotel Allegheny. 
Sidney Peale '20 and his wife still do most 
of the management of the hotel which is 
operated by their married daughter. Don 
Haman and wife were spending the sum- 
mer in Eagles Mere. They spend their 
winters in Florida, and we had several 
'Gab fests' with them. Saw Jere Bates 
'15 in Mifflinburg where he was busy 
with his retirement hobby, greenhouse 
work. I had a nice trip to Florida in 
March. Saw many interesting things and 
places. Church life and entertaining of 
guests in our home helps make life inter- 
esting. We had guests this summer from 
Brazil, Georgia and Virginia." 

Ray Sprenkle tells me that Kriner, 
Swope and he (classmates in Waynesboro 
High School— 1912) attended their 45th 
reunion this past year and that 17 out of 
their class of 27 were present, including 
2 of their former teachers. They all had 
a grand time and are looking forward to 
their SOth. "Some of us may be on 
crutches or in a wheel chair and with ear 
trumpets, but we'll be there." That's the 
old spirit, Ray. 

Ray's younger son presented them with 
a new grandson last spring. "Presently 
he is in the Yale cheering section, where- 
as our two granddaughters (children of 
Roger '47) are trying to convince us Los 
Angeles is the place to call home." 

Ray planned a trip in October for 2 
days of hiking into the Grand Canyon and 
probably later will write and tell us about

peppered by, "Do you remember?" and 
"I wonder whatever happened to?" Later, 
before the school season started, Edie and 
Stu Smith and their two teen-age chil- 
dren, Craig (playing football at Loyola 
High in Baltimore and thus following 
his dad's footsteps) and Judy, (a real 
glamor girl who attends Bryn Mawr

I received a superb letter from Janet

everyone to know that she is back east

summer. She reports that Jack '34 and

Some time ago, I received the above 
picture with a nice note from Ken Bay- 
less, who submits the picture "as positive 
proof that Bucknellians do not really 
change much with the passing years." 
Judging from the appearance of Herb and 
Helen Ahrensfield Heany, seated in their 
home in Basking Ridge, N. J., he is so 
right! Herb is a practising attorney in 
Bernardsville, N. J., and is also town 
magistrate there. While Ken was visit- 
ing with them, they also had a small 
Bucknell Reunion with Jerry and Elva 
Ahrensfield Bacon. According to Ken, 
Basking Ridge is getting to be a regular

a couple of other pictures had priority. 

Hope that Christmas will bring me lots 
and lots of news from the Class of 1942.

two weeks local leave the early part 
last month (January). As things k 
now, there's a very good chance of 
being able to make our 10th reunion 
1959. We're due to go on our home le; 
in Alarch, but I think we'll delay ii 
couple of months to avoid the cold wea 
er for our trip through Europe — so, t 
ought to land us in New Jersey about 
first of June. Sure would love to see d 
ol' Bucknell again and especially at 
union time when some of my forr 
classmates would be there too."

J.NUARY 1959 





It's easy to overlook — or fail to realize — 
some of the many gifts we receive from our 
alma mater. At the 45th reunion of 1911. 
we read a letter from the absent Margaret 
Curtis in which she made this quotable state- 
ment : "College is the only place where we 
get our friends handed to us. We don't have 
to work to get them." We liked the way 
she put it and thought gratefully of the many 
friendships Bucknell has given us. But there 
are other unrecognized legacies and we are 
sometimes brought up short with sudden 
realization of them. 

I want to tell the story of one such gift 
that has affected Leo's and my life in recent 
years. And the person responsible for it 
will probably be very much surprised at this 
public acknowledgement of his contribution. 

It was December, just ten years ago. We 
were opening our Christmas messages, noting 
with pleasure the friends who had taken 
time to remember us, even greater pleasure 
those who had added a few of their own to 
the printed words, and reading avidly the 
personal items added to still others. 

Then we came upon an envelope with two 
mimeographed sheets. The signature was 
that of one of Leo's former students, then an 
instructor at a California university. We 
scanned the pages curiously, for this was not 
the usual letter form. The opening para- 
graph began with "JANUARY." Following 
that, our friend had given highlights of his 
familv life for that month. In the same way 

he had treated February, March, and so on 
clear through to December. 

We read, fascinated, to the end. Not that 
there were any sensational news flashes. Nor 
was everything understandable to us. His 
field was biology, ours was language. He 
had married someone we didn't know, had 
children we had never seen. At that time 
we had never been on the West Coast, so 
did not recognize place names. He told of 
field trips, of animal life found in forest, 
field and on the beach, using terms unfamiliar 
to us. Nevertheless we were held by this 
picture of family and professional life, un- 
folding month by month, with a conse- 
quent build-up of interest. 

And who was the Bucknellian who gave us 
this word picture? Many of you knew him, 
for he was a well-known figure on the 
campus in the early thirties, John Mohr '33. 
He was the younger brother of my student, 
Charles Mohr '30, another well-known Buck- 
nellian and one who has more than fulfilled 
the promise he showed as he worked closely 
with that Master Teacher, Norman Stewart. 
For Charles has become an eminent bat chas- 
er, in and out of caves all over the country. 

Editor's Note : This column, the first of a

In the November, 1958, issue of

surprised and embarrassed when we 
received a letter from Air. Lotowycz 
with the comment "I admit to many 
deficiencies in life but not life itself.'' 

We offer our profound apologies to 
Mr. Lotowycz for this unfortunate er-

ilCH 1959 

ON JUNE 8, 1957, over one thousand alumni, fac- 
ulty, trustees, and guests listened intently to an 
announcement made by Dr. Charles L. Horn H'55, 
President of the Olin Foundation, Inc. It was at 
the All-Alumni Luncheon in Davis Gymnasium that 
Dr. Horn made public a grant of $1,475,000 to be 
given by the Olin Foundation for the construction of 
the University's largest classroom building, Coleman 
Hall. One year later, again on Alumni Day, the cor- 
nerstone was placed, and on January 17, 1959, a dream 
became a reality as Coleman Hall was officially ded- 

The largest single gift ever received by the Uni- 
versity, Coleman Hall was named in honor of Dr. 
William H. Coleman, Vice President and Dean of 
the College, Emeritus. The tireless efforts of Dr. 
Coleman were of the greatest influence in obtaining 
this, as well as the first grant from the Olin Founda- 
tion. The first grant was a gift of $900,000 for the 
constructing and equipping of the F. W. Olin Science 
Building dedicated in 1955, for the use of the Depart- 
ments of Chemistry, Mathematics, and Physics. 


On Friday evening, January 16, the program for 
the weekend began when a reception was held in 
Hunt Hall in honor of the directors of the Olin Foun- 
dation and candidates for honorary degrees. 

Saturday morning the directors of the Olin Foun- 
dation and' Bucknell trustees attended the unveiling 
of the memorial plaque in the main lobby of Coleman 
Hall and inspected the building prior to joining the

the University of a portrait in oil of Dr. Coleman 
was also unveiled at the ceremonies by R. Henry 
Coleman '29, son of Dr. Coleman and Bucknell trus- 
tee. The work of Norman Appleton '22 of Santa Fe, 
New Mexico, the portrait is hung in the lobby of 
the University Theatre. 

At the con\ocation exercises Dr. Horn formally

R. White '26, chairman of the Board of Trustees ac-

In addressing the 1500 students, faculty, and hon- 
ored guests. President Odgers undoubtedly reflected 
the views of all Bucknellians when he said, "The Olin 
Foundation will occupy a unique place in the history 
of Bucknell." Later, in paying tribute to Dr. Cole- 
man, Dr. Odgers said in part, "Dr. William H. Cole- 
man is one of Bucknell's truly great teachers. Among 
his achievements as vice president and dean, he de- 
veloped the interest of the directors of the Olin Foun- 
dation in Bucknell University as an institution with a 
future. To no small degree he has created that future. 


Following his address. Dr. Odgers conferred the 
honorary degree of Doctor of Laws upon Dr. Louis 
W. Robey '04, honorary vice chairman of the board 
of directors of Marts and Lundy, Inc., "in recogni- 
tion of his substantial contributions to the financing 
of education and philanthropy of his services to the

Dr. Jens Frederick Larson, University architect 
since 1932 and senior member of the firm of Larson

in their results as they have risen to view around us." i 


Following a luncheon for the special guests in the 
Women's Dining Hall, faculty and students were 
invited to attend an open house at Coleman Hall. 
Twelve student guides conducted guided tours through- 
out the building. More than 500 persons from the 
local area visited the new classroom building Sunday

alteniooii during a special open house for the general 
public. Student guides conducted tours while student 
assistants in some of the departments were on hand 
to answer questions. 


The initial performance in the University Theatre 
on Saturday evening climaxed the day-long program. 
An invited audience of 500 guests enjoyed the per- 
formance designed to show the various uses to which 
the theatre will be put. Student musical groups and 
vocal soloists, readings by Dr. C. Willard Smith, 
chairman of the Department of English, two out- 
standing dramatic scenes, a dance by Carol B. Ron- 
son, instructor of physical education for women and 
a pantomime folk dance by four foreign students were 
features of the program. Lionel Kranitz '55, who 
has appeared on Broadway and on television, and 
Robert Blake '54, who is currently a graduate student 
at Bucknell, played leading roles in the dramatic 

Harvey M. Powers, director of the University 
theatre and assistant professor of English, directed 
the program and served as master of ceremonies. 


Coleman Hall houses the Departments of Eco- 
nomics, History, Political Science, Sociology, Educa- 
tion, Psychology, Philosophy, and Religion. The build- 
ing, the second largest building on the Bucknell cam- 
pus (Davis Gymnasium is larger in cubic feet) is 365 
feet long, covering 77,000 square feet of space. 

It is completely air-conditioned and contains 33 
classroom units including: two amphitheatre type lec- 
ture halls ; a television studio for classroom use of 
closed-circuit television ; a room specially equipped 
for instruction of elementarj^ teachers ; two accounting 
laboratories ; a psychology laboratory ; typing and 
business machines rooms ; eight seminar rooms ; a 
small animal room, separately heated, ventilated and 
air-conditioned for psychology research ; a darkroom ; 
three departmental storerooms ; and forty-nine faculty 
and departmental offices, including a suite for use 
by Dr. Coleman. 


The University Theatre, which is the central unit 
of Coleman Plall, seats 514 persons. 

MARCH 1959 

The central stage house rises approximately 45 
feet above the stage floor to accommodate the flying 
of scenery, a fixed movie screen, and a double asbes- 
tos fire curtain. On either side of the main stage are 
wagon stages to permit easy scenery changes. A 
part of the large forestage is removable. The re- 
movable section provides a cover for the orchestra 
pit, which will be uncovered only for musical pro- 

Backstage is a seminar "Green Room," a star's 
dressing room, and two offices. On the ground floor 
under the stage house and wagon stages are men's 
and women's dressing rooms, lavatory and shower 
rooms, a scenery construction workshop, storage space 
for scenery and props, and rooms which house the 
electrical and mechanical equipment for the building. 


Of the total $1,475,000 gift that made possible this 
beautiful building $210,000 was earmarked for equip- 
ment and furnishings. The equipment of the build- 
ing includes : a steam reduction air-conditioning sys- 
tem which utilizes steam from the central steam plant : 
the most modern electronic theatre lighting control 
equipment ; complete stage rigging and public ad- 
dress equipment ; five 16 mm motion picture pro- 
jectors; a closed circuit, one camera television system 
for experimental work in visual aids : slide projectors : 
tape recorders ; and built-in classroom screens and 

The first floor corridor is designed and lighted to 
hang art exhibits so that art may be brought to the 
students in their daily lives. 


In conclusion it may be said without hesitation 
the happy theme of the dedication ceremonies was 
appreciation on the part of the Bucknell family — 
alumni, students, facult)-, and stafif alike. In the words 
of President Odgers, "We are toda\- the legatees of 
men who were willing to pledge to the nation 'their 
lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.' We 
shall match their devotion with our energies, our in- 
telligence, and our resources to educate at Bucknell 
men and women wise enough and good enough to 
make a success of their own lives, and through and 
beyond that, to make a strong contribution to our 
nation and our world." 



COLEMAN HALL, named in honor of Dr. William H. Coleman, Vice 
President and Dean of the College, Emeritus, is a fitting tribute to a 
man whose long career at Bucknell University has been marked b}' his de- 
votion to scholarship and to educational standards of the highest order. 

A native of Albert, New Brunswick, Canada, Dr. Coleman was born 
in 1885 and received his early education in that country. He earned his 
Bachelor of Arts degree from Acadia University, Nova Scotia, in 1906 
and three years later was awarded the Master of Arts degree by the same 
institution. At various periods during his career, Dr. Coleman engaged in 
graduate studies at the University of Virginia, Harvard, the University of 
Wisconsin, and Cambridge University. In 1930 Acadia University awarded 
him the degree of Doctor of Literature and in 1956 Bucknell conferred 
upon him the honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters, citing him as 
"an eloquent spokesman in the cause of liberal education." 

Married to the former Edna M. Wilcox in 1908, Dr. Coleman suffered 
a great personal loss in her death on March 30, 1958. 

His only son, R. Henry Coleman '29, Chairman of the Develop- 
ment Committee of the Board of Trustees and Vice President of the Rem- 
ington Arms Co., Inc., along with his wife, Esther Keim Coleman '30, and 
sons, Rowland H., Jr. and William H., II, attended the dedication with 
Dr. Coleman. 

Dr. Coleman is known to thousands of alumni who studied in his English 
classes during his 21 years as a teacher. Appointed dean of the College 
in 1945, he was given the title of vice president in 1953 in recognition of his 
services as head of the academic life of the University. Upon his retirement 
from the position of dean in 1956 he became secretar}' of the Bucknell Study 
and served in that capacity until July, 1958, when he was made vice presi- 
dent and dean of the College emeritus. 

All alumni, students, faculty, and staff join in thanking him for his un- 
selfish devotion to a grateful University.

inquiry at Alumni Headquar- 
ters is : "How does the Fund stand?" 
So we are happy to report that the 
results thus far this year indicate 
the fund will continue its trend of 
the last few years and reach a high- 
er level of giving from a larger num- 
ber of donors when the final results 
are reported on June 30, 1959, the 
end of the current fund year. 

The chart of figures on this page, 
showing the month-by-month cumu- 
lative totals for the fund last year 
and for this year thus far indicate 
the tendency of donors to wait until 
the last minute before making their 
annual contribution. This being the 
case, it is always a question at this 
stage in the program whether or not 
the usual whirlwind finish will ap- 
pear to carry the fund to new heights. 
Even though we seem to have ex- 
perienced a weaker thrust in the last 
three months, we are happy to re- 
port that by the end of Januarv we 
had received $23,473.18" from '1.367 
donors compared to $23,326.82 from 
1324 donors at the same date last 

Actually, as we go to press (Feb- 
ruary 19) 1,808 Bucknellians had 
made annual contributions of $28,- 
171.19. This is a splendid record and 

causes us to hope that our good for- 
tune will continue until June 30. If 
it does hold up, as every closing pe- 
riod in the past few years has, we 
stand a good chance of reaching the 
,$60,000 plateau this year, for the first 

An achievement of that magni- 
tude is not beyond reach, as mat- 
ters now stand. Its accomplishment, 
however, will depend largely on 
three factors that at the moment 
cannot be predicted safely. In the 
first ten years of annual giving con- 
tributions have risen from $5,000 to 
.$53,000 and the number of contrib- 
utors has grown from 584 to over 
4,500. If this annual growth con- 
tinues, we should expect for this 
year a total of $60,000 from over 
5,000 contributors. 

To reach this higher level by the 
end of our 11th year on June 30, we 
will need : 

1. To HOLD the gains already 

Last year 974 contributors of 
former years failed to make an an- 
nual contribution to the fund. It 
seems strange that many folks 
who would not think of skipping 
the annual support to their church 
do not see that support of their

university each year is vital to the 
growth of higher education. The 
"living endowment" principle up- 
on which annual giving funds 
operate require that the gift be 
repeated year after year. This is 
true because the annual "li\"ing 
endowment" gift is made in lieu 
of a much larger "invested endow- 
ment" gift that most of us can- 
not afford. Thus a $20 annual 
gift takes the place of a one-shot 
$500 "invested endowment" gift 
(at 4% interest.) 

2. To BROADEN the participa- 
tion among alumni. 

Last year 826 Bucknellians con- 
tributed to the fund for the first 
time. But we merely "scratched 
the surface" insofar as growth of 
the fund is concerned when we 
realize that there are still 10,061 
graduates, non-graduates, and 
master's degrees holders who have 
never yet contributed. Enthusi- 
asm and vigorous interest of those 
who do participate are contagious 
and the tried-and-found-good pro- 
cedures of class letters and visits 
bv area fund agents will help ex- 
plain the need for Alumni Annual- 
giving to this large group of pros- 
pects. The potential for broader 
giving is tremendous. 

3. To UPGRADE the gift size. 
How much to give is a personal 

matter to be decided by each in- 
dividual donor. However it is 
evident after a study of the dis- 
tribution pattern of alumni gifts 
last year that many donors have 
formed the habit of making a "to- 
ken" contribution whereas a con- 
sideration of their "proportionate 
abilit\-" would lead them to in- 
crease their gifts. "^Vishful fig- 
uring" to see what would happen 
if donors considered increasing 
their gift this year just to the 
lowest level of the step above last 
vear's giving brings the startling 
realization that this year's goal 
would be far exceeded. Already, 
many donors in the upper brack- 
ets of last year have stepped up 
their contributions.

University ends academic year 1957-58 

with small surplus as result of 

increased alumni giving 


by John F. Zeller, III, Vice President — Business and Finance 

YEAR 1957-58 with a surplus of 
$9,606.25 as shown on the operating 
statement. This happy circumstance 
resuUed directh^ from the fact that 
the Ahimni Fund reached its highest 
total in history this year with a net 
of $53,433. 

Educational and general expenses 
of $2,464,107.83, exceeded income 
for educational purposes of $2,249,- 
183.38, including the Alumni Fund, 
by $214,924.45. This dei^cit was 
made up bv income from auxiliary 
activities ($1,405,815.89) which ex- 
ceeded auxiliary activities expenses 
($1,181,285.19) by $223,530.70. 

A detailed financial statement is 
published each year b}- the Treas- 
urer, Donald B. Young '33, from 
which the figures in the box on this 
page were taken. These figures do 
not, of course, reflect the tuition in- 
crease which was effective in Sep- 
tember 1958. Nor do they reflect 
the substantial salary increases ef- 
fective at the same time. Never- 
theless, income for the year showed 
a gain over the preceding year of 
$193,753.77. On the other'hand, to- 
tal expenditures for the year showed 
an increase of $199,511.00 over the 
1956-57 figures. 

During the year 925 students re- 
ceived financial aid by way of schol- 
arships, grants, discounts, employ- 
ment and tuition remission to a to- 
tal of $233,487.84. Of this amount, 
$83,700.77 was spent for work aid. 

Capitalized additions to the plant 
totalled $95,377.26, bringing the to- 
tal amount invested in physical 
plant to $8,628,206.50. This does not 
include the gift from the Olin Foun- 
dation for the erection of Coleman 

During the year $338,054.57 was 
received in gifts from 5,738 donors. 
Of this amount, including the Alum- 
ni Fund, alumni contributed $96,- 
428.29. Parents contributed $10.- 
011.00, foundations contributed $77.- 
098.08, and corporations contributed 

At year end the endowment fund 
showed a book value of $4,832,048.04 
on which the market value was $6,- 

MARCH 1 9 .'5 9 

378,061.71. The major sources of 
the year's increase were gifts to the 
general endowment and restricted 
funds from Mrs. Ellen Clarke Ber- 
trand, M. L. Benedum, Robert L. 
Rooke, the Freas Foundation, the 
Father's Loyalty Fund, I. R. Smith, 
and Paul S. Killian. The net gain on 

the sale of securities was $3,145.23. 
Despite the substantial increase in 
Bucknell's endowment over the past 
years, endowment income represents 
only 11% of income for educational 
purposes. Student fees still produce 
80% of this total. Since income for

Sports Information Director 

THE BEST BASKETBALL team ill Bucknell history is 
spearheading the best winter sports season the 
school has ever had; the cagers have won 13 of 16 
games, the swimmers four of five meets, and the wres- 
tlers three of four matches. 

Coach Ben Kribbs and his come-from-behind Bison 
basketballers have become a real strain to follow con- 
sistently as they bear down in the drive for cham- 
pionship honors in the scorching Middle Atlantic 
Conference race because of their habit of leaving the 
outcome in doubt until the last one or two minutes 
of action. 

Then they show their class by CO0II3- stuffing in 
the points necessary for victory while the opposition 
stumbles under this unbearable pressure just long 
enough to find that time, and the chance for a recip- 
rocal rally, have run out on them. 

Although 6-6 center Hal Danzig, who was chosen 
on the weekly All East team for his brilliant play at 
Gettysburg, has attracted considerable attention be- 
cause of his assault on almost every school scoring 
and rebounding record, Bucknell's performance must 
be termed a team effort in the strictest sense of the 

The starting five, in addition to co-captain Danzig, 
includes forwards Bob Ericsson and co-captain Ellis 
Harley, and guards Jack Flanegan and Tommy Thomp- 
son. Each man has made his unique contribution to 
the team, coming through in the special situations 
where pre-season analyses said he would be most 

Harley, who started slowly in the first three games 
due to an ankle injury, came on to shoot brilliantly 
for the next eight games, in which time he made 
over 50% of his shots and was the team's high scorer 
seven times. Ericsson, who anchors his 6-6 frame 
with a springy pair of legs, is second only to Danzig 
in rebounds, averaging better than 10 a game, and 
has also been scoring better than 10 points per outing. 

The guards have been the stars in the waning 
moments of more than a few of the close ones. Flane- 
gan, blessed with uncanny co-ordination and balance, 
drilled in a series of spectacular one-hand jump shots 
against Temple and Albright to pace Bucknell scoring 
as well as open up the opposing defense with his un- 
predictable maneuvers. 

And Thompson, the only junior on the "Big Five", 
took over where he left off last season as the driver 
of the team and the man who makes the plays work. 
He is credited with nearly half the team's assists, 
and his speed and hustle have been well applied in 
his standard assignment of guarding the opponent's 
top scorer.

den from view) surround a panther, Pittsburgh's All-American Don Hennon,

72 to 58.

On February 5, 1959, a new scoreboard was used for the first time in Davis 
Gymnasium. A gift of the Men's Student Assembly, it replaces a scoreboard 
given to the University in 1940 by the Class of 1938. The original 1938 
clock, which was part of the old scoreboard installation, has been retained 
as a memorial to the Class of 1938. 

MARCH 1958 

The Kribbsmen have been scoring a fruitful 44% 
of their shots and 75% of their free throws. Since 
the Westminster victory, they won every game by 
staging a furious rally, but each time it was accom- 
plished with almost disdainful ease. 

Some of the recent close calls came against teams 
which some felt should have been beaten by a wider 
margin. However. Bucknell has entered every game 
since the 70-68 overtime loss at La Salle with suffo- 
cating pressure hanging overhead. 

For the team knew: (1) That it could not lose an- 
other M. A. C. game without losing its chance for the 
title and a bid to the NCAA Championships, and 
(2) That further losses to non-conference opposition 
would all but eliminate Bucknell's chances of receiv- 
ing notice in the weekly basketball ratings of AP 
and UPI. 

On the other hand, opponents with records of, say 
7-6, had none of this pressure and had the added in- 
centive of a chance to knock off a highly rated team. 

So the Kribbsmen, like anyone else, are glad to 
win by any score, regardless of the point spread. It 
is still the final score that counts, and the Bisons, 
although often getting there the hard way, have fin- 
ished on top often enough to practically assure them 
of becoming the winningest team in Bucknell history. 
The 16-8 records of the past two years are the pres- 
ent highs, but this winter's quintet hopes to exceed 
that total by several games. 

Danzig, with a career total of 1,055 points, is clos- 
ing fast on the school record of 1,183 set by Joe 
Gallagher from 1949-52. The team is threatening 
school records in total scoring, points per game, re- 
bounds, and total victories. 

In short, this quintet, which is putting the name 
of Bucknell in the headlines all over the East, is the 
best in Bucknell history and one of the best in the 
East this year. The 1958-59 season could well mark 
the first appearance ever by a Bucknell team in a 
national championship basketball tournament. 

Tommy Thompson, junior guard from Kane, drives for two points in the 
Bison's home opener against Gettysburg. Bucknell won the game, 77 to 62. 


MARCH 1959 


THE SWIMMING BOOM at Bucknell is in full swing, and 
growing at a breath-taking pace under the steady 
hand of Coach Bob Latour. The mermen have posted 
four straight wins after an opening loss to Penn, and 
may well finish with a 7-1 
mark, meaning that Bucknell 
will be set to take on a 
stepped-up schedule next 
winter when the Bisons will 
meet foes like Rutgers and 
Lehigh for the first time. 

Bill Barrett has gone un- 
beaten in his first 12 starts 
of the year in the 50 and 100 
yard free style, and has an- 
chored six victorious med- 
ley relays for a 1.000 aver- 
age. Best times : 24.5 in the 
50, 54.9 in the 100. 

Capt. Bob Buys has five of six wins in the 200 
back stroke and has also helped to win six straight 
medley relays. Skip Cannon has three wins in the 
200 breast stroke, Kent Smith has four triumphs in 
the 220 yard free style, and Bob Erdahl a pair of wins 
in the gruelling 200 butterfly. 

Doug Forsyth has four diving victories, Jim Bru- 
baker has one, and Bill Sharky and Dick Kershner 
each posted a first in the 440 yard free style. 

The Bison freshmen have smashed eight of 10 
school records, narrowly missed the M. A. C. mark 
in the medley relay. Meaning: future is bright. 


COACH Bill Wrabley^s wrestlers have started a new 
victory streak. The old one was ended when 
Bucknell's nearest neighbor to the north, Lycoming 
College, scored a 16-12 victory on Jan. 16 to end 
Bucknell's longest skein at 

The Bisons rebounded to 
smash Temple, 29-2, as they 
began building another cas- 
tle with hopes of making it 
taller than the one Lycom- 
ing crumbled. And well they 
might, for only Capt. Row- 
land Bell, who is 5-1 at 137 
pounds, will graduate. 

Bucknell's 5-1 record is 
paced by 167 pounder Dave 
Alurdock, who has never lost 
a college match. He has 15 

straight victories and an M. A. C. crown. John Ayre 
has also won all six of his matches to date at 130, 
while Don Warfel (157 and 177), and Kenny Wight- 
man (123), have won four of five matches. Al Duff 
( 147) is 3-1. 

lohn McKenna (157) has a 1-1-1 record. Grant 
Watkins (Hwt.) is 1-2, Rock Hudson (Hwt. and 177) 
is 3-1-1, and Bob Brown (123) is 0-L Pete Fritts, 
who goes anywhere from 147 to 177, and was un- 
defeated in seven starts last year, has a calcium deposit 
in his shoulder which has limited him to a 2-1-1 total 
so far. His complete recovery can help the squad 
in its bid for a win over Delaware before the Mid-At- 
lantics at Hofstra on Feb. 27-28. 





In celebration of Bucknell's 113th 
birthday (Bucknell was chartered 
bv an act of the Pennsylvania legis- 
la'ture signed by the governor on 
February's, 1846) a number of Buck- 
nell Alumni Clubs in the Eastern 
United States held or will hold 
birthday dinners during February 
and March. 

Almost half of the meetings were 
held in Pennsylvania in Philadel- 
phia, Pittsburgh, Scranton, Reading, 
Harrisburg, Johnstown, Altoona, 
York, L e h i'g h Valley, Sunbury, 
Chambersburg, Centre County, Lew- 
isburg, Milton, Lock Haven and 

Seven meetings were held in New 
York at alumni centers in Manhat- 
tan, Long Island, Buffalo, Syracuse, 
Rochester, Ithaca, Elmira, Endicott 
and Schenectady. 

In New Jersey birthday dinners 
were held at Trenton, Pitman, 
Shrewsbury, and Cedar Grove. 

New England was represented by 
gatherings at Boston, Pittsfield and 
at Newtown, Conn. 

Other celebration parties were 
held at Baltimore, Md. ; St. Peters- 
burg, Fla. ; Houston, Texas; and 
Chicago, 111. 

Alumni and parents of present un- 
dergraduates who attended most of 
these meetings had an opportunity 
to hear campus speakers. Members 
of the faculty and administrative 
staff who visited alumni club meet- 
ings included Dr. Merle M. Odgers, 
Dr. Karl D. Hartzell, Coach Bob 
Odell, Professors Harold W. Miller,

taken by Mrs. Kitchen and narrated 
as only she could have expressed it. 
We really had a wonderful free trip 
to the West Coast, Hawaii and on 
to Japan. With the Christian Edu-

Japan, Mrs. Kitchen had an oppor- 
tunity to attend and wanted to share 
her priceless slides with us. She 
also brought various gifts that were 
given to her and lovely paintings, 
figurines, china, painted wooden 
bowls and various other objects of 
interest. It was an evening we shall 
all remember.

MARCH 1959 




The Board of Trustees at its semi-annual meeting, December 12, 1958, at the 

Bellevue-Strattord Hotel, Philadelphia. 

AGAIN A DEVOTED MEMBER of the Board of Trustees 
has set the pace for giving in a major campaign 
for Bucknell University. At the meeting of the trus- 
tees held in Philadelphia on December 12, 1958, A. 
Guy Freas announced his gift of $100,000 to the Dual 
Development Fund. 

The ultimate responsibility for the well-being of 
the University is lodged in the Board of Trustees. 
Financial matters are their particular responsibility. 
Since its early days, Bucknell has had the kind of 
strength in its Board which could undergird progress 
on all fronts. This has been particularly true in recent 
years, when Bucknell has received the endowment 
gifts of the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, the gift of 
the Library from Ellen Clarke Bertrand, the Freas- 
Rooke Swimming Pool, and the generous support of 
Andrew J. Sordoni, Michael L. Benedum and others. 

Trustee participation in the Dual Development 
campaign organization is on a broad scale. The Trus- 
tees have assumed responsibility for the Initial Gifts 
quota of $600,000, to be given by them or obtained 
through their efforts. It was in response to a cam- 
paign statement at the Board meeting of December 
12, that Mr. Freas handed his generous pledge of 
$100,000 to the Chairman for Initial Gifts. Horace 
A. Hildreth.

MARCH 1951 

Dual Development Fund expands as 
initial gifts phase becomes active and 
Special Gifts phase is planned 


INITIAL GIFTS. Activity in this key phase of the 
campaign began at the meeting of the Trustees 
on December 12, 1958, and continues under the en- 
ergetic chairmanship of Dr. Horace A. Hildreth, Trus- 
tee and former President of Bucknell. Dr. Hildreth 
and Wesley N. Haines, Director of Development for 
the University, spent the first two weeks of February 
in New York City, making contacts with individuals, 
corporations, and foundations. 

"We found," said Dr. Hildreth, "that the name 
Bucknell has a real power in opening doors. There 
is a growing knowledge of the University and of the 
substantial place which it holds in the country. It 
was encouraging to find a realization that we must 
have strong undergraduate colleges of liberal arts 
and sciences, as well as high-level graduate and tech- 
nological schools." 

An important event in the Initial Gifts program 
is the dinner planned by Dr. Detlev W. Bronk, Trus- 
tee of Bucknell and President of the Rockefeller In- 
stitute for Medical Research. The dinner, to be held 
in Dr. Bronk's home at the Institute, will bring to- 
gether twenty-five business leaders and educators, 
whose interest is valuable to Bucknell. 

SPECIAL GIFTS. On Saturday, January 17, the 
Steering Committee met on the campus and approved 
the plan for the Special Gifts campaign prepared by 
the Dual Development Fund office. 

The quota for Special Gifts is $400,000 ; the Chair- 
man is R. H. Coleman '29; and the time span set for 
the efiiort is February through June, 1959. 

The Special Gifts program expands the circle of 
effort begun by the Initial Gifts phase. The lists 
assembled contain names of selected alumni, parents, 
friends, corporations, and foundations. Only those 
alumni are included who, it is felt, will make a gift 
to the capital gifts effort while at the same time con- 
tinuing the support of the Alumni Fund during the 
year ending June 30, 1959. 

The principal regions chosen for Special Gifts 
work are New York City, Westchester County, Long 

Island, New Jersey, Wilmington, Philadelphia, Cen- 
tral Pennsylvania, and Pittsburgh. 

As one segment of the effort, President Odgers 
visited Pittsburgh on February 16 in company with 
Co-Chairman Harry G. Schad, and William R. White 
'26, Chairman of the Board of Trustees. The purpose 
was to confer with trustees resident in Pittsburgh on 
possibilities of gifts from the large foundations and 
corporations centered in the Steel City. Several en- 
couraging contacts were made, but President Odgers 
notes the stiff competition which outside colleges face 
because of intense interest in local institutions. 

"PRESENTING BUCKNELL." The competition 
for the title for the Bucknell film now in process 
brought forth over one hundred replies, the winner 
being "Presenting Bucknell." 

Maker of the film is Henry V. Hoagland of Wash- 
ington, D. C, who produced the current University 
of Pennsylvania film. President Odgers travelled to 
Washington on February 6 to record his remarks. 

Several sections, including fall scenes and a part 
of the Bucknell-Lehigh football game are "in the can." 
Recent shots include the Chapel session of February 
4, at which Trustee Daniel A. Poling was speaker. 

In a preliminary form, the film will be ready for 
showing within a few weeks, but the completed ver- 
sion must await shots of the full spring season, when 
the campus is at its beautiful best. 

NOTES ON GIFTS. Second in size only to the 
$100,000 contributed by A. Guy Freas is the $25,000 
contribution pledged by Dr. and Mrs. Horace A. 

DID YOU KNOW— that Bucknell is among the 
top 17% of American colleges and universities in re- 
spect to size? Eighty-three per cent of our approxi- 
mately 2,000 colleges and universities are smaller. 
One-third of the total have enrollments of 500 or 
under. Bucknell is no small college. In the words of 
an alumnus, it "is large enough to be strong in general 
areas ; small enough to be cordial."

The Student View 

htj BOBBIE RUNK '61 


The women's social honor system can he a 

powerful mfuence in the lives of all Bucknell women 

WHAT INSTITUTION ON CAMPUS is more widely dis- 
cussed and more relevant to student interests, 
both male and female, than the women's social honor 
system ! This honor system, which is in its eleventh 
year at Bucknell, is the very foundation of the Wo- 
men's Student Government Association. Bucknell wo- 
men conduct themselves according to the rules of 
the system, and in case of violation of any rule they 
are bound by their honor to report themselves to 
Honor Council, an elected body of women students, 
who considers the infraction and administers appro- 
priate punishments. 

In order for such a system to be successful in the 
college community the students must first of all be 
thoroughly educated and oriented in the principles 
upon which the system is based. They must also 
possess a certain degree of integritj'. It is one of the 
purposes of the Honor System to strengthen this in- 
tegrity, and to develop a sense of personal respon- 
sibility. Before entering Bucknell, all women stu- 
dents are required to sign the \A\ S. G. A. oath to 
"act at all times in accordance with the high standards 
of personal honor and responsibility which are the 
basis of this Honor System . . ." 

Most women students find this to be an ideal sys- 
tem under which to live. It assumes maturity in the 
women, and places a great deal more responsibility 
on the shoulders of each girl than systems used in 
other schools where the women are directly respon- 
sible to their head residents or to the deans. Despite 
the continual mocking from the cjuad and the fra- 
ternities, most of the men seem to respect the system. 

Each year several rules are abolished \\hich the 
women feel are adhered to so unconsciouslv that thev 

are no longer needed. 

The final goal toward which 

we are striving is a community in which there will be 
no rules. ^A'hat a wonderful societv this would be — 
if it could be realized. The system is highly idealistic 
and is considered by some of its critics to be an ex- 
treme expression of pride. In striving for this state 
in which all rules will be abolished we assume that 
it can be reached ; that is, that we will all some day 
be able to conduct ourselves by the highest standards 
of honor. Nations have attempted this many times, 
but have always found that due to the nature of peo- 
ple governments and laws are necessary. 

MARCH 1959 

Because this system has worked so well up to this 
point, it does not follow that the honor of the students 
has been responsible. A definite factor to consider is 
social pressure. There can be no one so idealistic as 
to believe that all offenders report themselves ; it is 
a known fact that many times those guilty of some 
minor violation who believe themselves to be unob- 
served will not bother to turn themselves in. But in 
very few cases does a woman fail to report herself 
Avhen other people are aware of her offense. The 
universal need for social approval is a strong factor to 
consider in determining the success of the Honor Sys- 
tem on its own merit. 

Most women will agree that this is the best system 
under which to live, but many feel this way for covert 
reasons very different from those noble ones already 
mentioned. Few women are serious enough oft'enders 
to call themselves to the attention of school officials, 
and yet if a slip is made once in awhile no one is the 
worse for it. Under the Honor System no one re- 
ports anyone else for minor slips ; indeed, often no one 
even knows the difference, and therefore a great deal 
of fuss and to-do over an unimportant matter is elim- 
inated. The entire affair was a mistake and wouldn't 
happen again. The women who have difficulty con- 
forming to rules would violate them under any s3-s- 
tem, and there are those in every school who are 
asked to leave because of this. 

I am here neither extolling the \'irtues nor con- 
demning the vices of those people who are able or not 
able to live honorably under a social honor svstem. 
I agree with those who feel that the honor system is 
the best type of government under which to live. A 
definite sense of responsibility and a certain respect 
for honor itself seem to be the results. However, I 
feel, realistically, that there is little apparent virtue 
or even practicabilitj' in striving for a community in 
which there are no rules and regulations. All of so- 
ciety is based on rules and laws which must be fol- 
lowed in order for people to live together peaceably. 
People have never been able to live together without 
rule and most probably never will. Therefore, it seems 
that a respect for and responsibility toward existing 
laws, and a deeper sense of personal honor are the 
happiest objecti\es towards which we may work 
through the Honor Svstem. 


Over 50 U.S. companies now match alumni gifts 


enjoy a surefire method of 
doubling their gifts to the Univer- 
sity. Who are these fortunate peo- 

They are the employees of some 
fifty American companies that have 
a standing offer to match their em- 
ployees' gifts to their colleges and 
universities. This program of match- 
ing employee gifts to institutions of 
higher education is known as the 
"corporate alumnus" plan — a name 
originated by the General Electric 
Company whose plan is the proto- 
type of most of the others. 

The premise of the "corporate 
alumnus" program is a sound one. 
It holds that a company is the sum 
total of its employees, hence an 
"alumnus" of all their alma maters. 
Matching its collegiate loyalty to 
that of flesh-and-blood alumni in its 
employ, a corporate alumnus, gives 
a dollar for every dollar given by an 
employee, usually within a pre- 
scribed limit. 

How does the corporate alumnus 
program work? Let's take the GE 
program as an example. Any GE 
employee of a year's standing who 
attended Bucknell mails a gift to the 
University along with a printed 
form available from the company. 
The University completes the form, 
returns it to GE, and the company 
then sends the University a gift of 
the same amount. With variations, 
this is the general procedure of most 
cooperating companies. 

How successful are these match- 
ing gifts programs? Again let us 
use GE as an example. The GE 
program began in 1955. In 1957 — 
its third year — the GE program 
matched a total of $220,301.83 in 
contributions made by 5,557 contrib- 
utors from 393 different colleges and 
universities. In 1958 GE had 140 
Bucknellians in its employ and eli- 
gible to have their gifts to the Alum- 
ni Fund matched. Of these, 18 con- 
tributed to the Fund a total $470.50 
which was matched by GE. The 
growth of the GE program is shown 
on the accompanying chart which 
lists the gifts of Bucknellians em- 
ployed by GE in 1954 — a year before 
the program was instituted — and 
then shows the year-by-3'ear results. 
How does the Bucknell Alumni 
Fund use the program to solicit 
more and larger gifts from GE em- 
ployees? To avoid high pressure, 
the Fund has confined its efforts to 

a single reminder letter to Bucknel- 
lians in GE employ usually sent just 
before the close of the GE fiscal 
year. On other campuses, especial- 
ly in larger universities where the 
number of employees runs to a large 
figure, personal solicitation teams in 
each plant location have been or- 
ganized. This arrangement might 
be possible for Bucknell in some of 
the larger company installations. 
What we would like to do is insti- 
tute the one-shot reminder letter 
among the other gift-matching com- 
panies, many of which are not in a 
position to supply the University 
with the names of Bucknellians in 
their employ. 

To alumni employed by compa- 
nies with a corporate giving pro- 
gram, the Alumni Fund office adds 
this note of warning. You may for- 
feit your matching gift if you fail 
to send along with your gift the cer- 
tification form required by your 
company, or fail to take whatever 
other action your employer may re- 
quire to qualify the University for 
the company's contribution.

employees to the Bucknell Alumni 
Fund are :

from student dormitory and dining

Bucknell students and their parents 
are paying even more than 80% of 
the cost of a Bucknell education. 
Nonetheless, although scholarship 
funds are less than might seem de- 
sirable, it is also apparent that every 
Bucknell student is receiving a par- 
tial scholarship in that fees do not 
pay the full cost of Bucknell's edu-

MARCH 1959 

ily. The Bucknell version of alum- 
ni giving has become a success story 
but the ever-increasing costs of a 
college education make it essential 
tor those of us who benefited from 
the gifts of past Bucknellians when 
we were in college to now consider 
"proportionate" giving to assist the 
present and future generations of 
Bucknell students. 


In recent years state departments 
of education have shown a growing 
concern for the graduate programs 
of teachers by requiring more study 
of subject matter, more general edu- 
cation, and, consequently, less study 
of educational theory and methods. 
The Bucknell University Summer 
School program for teachers has 
been organized so as to meet this 
new emphasis. 

This summer Bucknell will ofifer, 
for the first time, a new degree, Mas- 
ter of Arts in Liberal Studies, which 
will help teachers obtain more gen- 
eral education. Candidates for this 
degree will elect at least eighteen 
hours of thirty required hours in two 
or more departments rather than the 
usual eighteen hours in one depart- 
ment. The remaining hours will be 
fulfilled by an integrating course re- 
quired of all candidates and by free 
electives. Candidates may begin the 
study of new subjects by electing 
beginning courses open only to grad- 
uate students. 

Other special programs will meet 
specific needs. For instance, the 
third Summer Institute in Science 
and Mathematics, sponsored by 
Bucknell and the National Science 
Foundation, will help high school 
teachers of biology, chemistry, phys- 
ics and mathematics to strengthen 
their teaching. The second Sum- 
mer Institute for Asian Studies will 
aim to broaden the teaching of social 
studies and geography. Scholarships, 
furnished by the Asia Society, the 
Japan Society and the Asia Founda- 
tion, are available for this latter pro- 

Bucknell's Practicum in the Lan- 
guage Arts will enable elementary 
school teachers to study the most re- 
cent materials and techniques ap- 
plicable to the teaching of literature, 
reading, spelling, writing, speech, 
dramatization, and foreign language. 
They and other students in Eclu- 
cation will be able to observe a 
Summer Children's Demonstration 
school where the most recent meth- 
ods will be demonstrated. 

As usual there will be a full pro- 
gram for the certification of all types 
of school executives : elementary and 
secondary school principals and su- 

A special workshop for the train- 
ing of guidance counsellors will be 
directed by Dr. J. Charles Jones, 
chairman of the Department of Ed- 
ucation. The workshop will feature 
seminars and laboratory periods, 
and will be addressed by a number 
of special consultants, nationally 
known in the field. 

A lively cultural program will 
strengthen the curricula work. Among 
the distinguished visitors who will 
be heard in seminar and public lec- 
ture are : Cleanth Brooks, noted 
scholar and critic ; Dr. Max Black, 
author of Critical Thinking, and Sage 
Professor of Philosophy at Cornell ; 
and Dr. Robert Bernreuter, creator 
of the Bernreuter Personality Inven- 

Alumni who have friends who 
plan to study this summer would 
do well to call their attention to 
Bucknell's Summer School for 1959.

Dr. A. R. E. Wyant '92 continues a full 
round of activities at 91 years of age. He 
recently preached the sermon at his home 
congregation where he has been a member 
for more than 50 years. At the recent 
Roger Williams Fellowship Dinner at the 
University of Chicago, he was given a 
standing ovation when he was introduced 
as the oldest living graduate, the 207th 
student to matriculate at the University. 
Always a generous benefactor to Buck- 
nell, it was recently reported that he has 
contributed $3,000 in the past three years 
toward the payment of the mortgage on 
the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity house on 
the Bucknell campus. 

We offer belated but sincere sympathy 
to the widow and children of Dr. Charles 
M. Teufel '04, who died instantly when 
stricken with coronary occlusion on Octo- 
ber 14, 1958. 

"Ginger," who had served as president 
of the Emeritus Club since June, 1955, 
had just that day conferred with the Alum- 
ni Office concerning Etneritus Club af- 
fairs. His energetic leadership had provid- 
ed the members of the Emeritus Club with 
outstanding reunion programs during the 
past three years. He will be sadly missed 
by the members of his Class of 1904, the 
entire Emeritus Club membership and 
Bucknell alumni generally. 

Born in Muncy in 1877, Dr. Teufel 
earned the bachelor's degree in 1904 and 
the master's degree in 1908 from Buqknell 
University. As a student he excelled 
academically and became a member of 
Phi Gamma Delta fraternity. In ath- 
letics, "Ginger" was particularly known as 
a baseball catcher. But he quarterbacked 
the Bucknell football team which had the 
late Christy Mathewson '02 as its standout 
fullback. He gave up a promising athletic 
career in professional baseball to enter 
the ministry, but maintained throughout 
his life a keen interest in college athletics, 
attending all Bucknell athletic events on 
campus until the time of his death. Just 
a few years ago he presented to the Uni- 
versity the baseball glove he used here as 
a student. From 1907, when he was or- 
dained into the Lutheran ministry, he 
served churches in Pittsburgh; Middle- 
town. Md.; Aliquippa; Newport News, 
Va. ; Roanoke, Va.; and Staunton, Va. He 
retired from the ministry at the Home- 
stead Park Messiah Lutheran Church in 
1947 but continued to serve as interim 
pastor in a number of Lutheran churches 
in many areas. In fact. Rev. Teufel had 
preached two services on the Sunday be- 
fore his death. 

He is survived by his wife, the former 
Minnie Emma Falls, whom he married in 
1950, a son, two daughters, twelve grand- 
children, and six great-grandchildren. Fu- 
neral services were held in the Trinity 
Lutheran Church, Milton, with interment 
at Harmony Cemetery. Heartfelt sym- 
pathy of the University is extended to 
Mrs. Teufel and the surviving relatives. 

We are happy to announce that Dr. 


Carl L. Millward '06, AM '08, Honorary 
'31 of Milton has accepted the presidency 
of the Emeritus Club. Dr. Millward 
called together the other officers of the 
club: William G. Murdock '04, Milton, 
secretary-treasurer; Col. A. F. Dershimer 
'03, Tunkhannock, fund manager; Mary 
Cotton '96, Eldred, club reporter; Dr. 
Mabel Grier Lesher '01 and Mrs. Sara

For winter's snow or April showers; 
For home and loved ones' constant care; 
A hearth that warms the house I share; 
For sound of children at their play 
Which crowns my happiness each day; 
At evening time for family prayer. 
Thanking God for w-atchful care. 
These things in my heart I keep 
Before I rest in peaceful sleep."

Bucknell and the Class of 1907 owe a 
debt of gratitude to Mary Stanton Speich- 
er for her long service as class fund man- 
ager. Under Mary's inspiring leadership, 
1907 has remained in the top bracket of 
Alumni Fund contributors. Now- Mary 
feels that the burden has grown too great 
for her to continue, and has asked to be re- 
lieved. Let's all join in "Hulla baloo 
baleven, Bucknell alumni nineteen seven" 
for her. It is such unselfish service which 
marks deep and genuine loyalty to Alma 

George Riggs has consented to take 
over Mary's responsibility. You will be 
hearing from him; please give him the 
loyal support vou have given Mary and 

Two of our classmates have returned 
to Lewisburg for their last long rest. Dr. 
William Kelly died April 28, 1958, after 
having been in ill health a number of 
years. Although not an invalid in the nar- 
rower sense of the word, he had retired 
from active work; some time ago he and 
Mrs. Kelly (Sara Meyer 'ID had gone 
back to Lewisburg, which had been his 
boyhood home. His death came suddenly, 
before a doctor could be summoned. Bill 
had always been a loyal member of the 
class; we shall miss him. Mrs. Kelly is 
now living with the family of her nephew, 
Dr. George Weber '25 at R. D. 1, Wal- 
dorf, Md.

So far, planning to answer present, ac- 
cording to latest reports to me, at our SOth 
next June 5, 6, 7 and 8 at Bucknell are: 
George Bailets, Amy Bollinger, Helge 
Florin, Gilbert Lyte, Ida Sames Yeager, 
John Shirley, Myrtle Walkinshaw Shupe 
and your Scribe. I hope this list increases 

Under a heading "A Glance Backward" 
we quote the following: Walkie boasts of 
a second great grandchild, born last Oc- 
tober. She adds, "I have never retired, I 
work harder and longer than ever." 

Dr. Newton Fetter writes, "I was asked 
to take a temporary position with the 
Baptist Board of Education in New York 
City. I planned to be in New York for 
a few months at most, but I remained 
from 1941 to 1952 when a bit over age, I 
retired." Dr. and Mrs. Fetter spend the 
summer months at their farm near Bloom- 
ing Grove and the winters in Rhode Island 
and Massachusetts visiting their son and 

Good for you, Helge. I hold in my hand 
a clipping from the Saint Petersburg Times. 
December 11, which states that Helge 
Florin has been elected the first president 
of the newly formed Causeway Isle Civic 

Thank you, John Shirley, for sending 
me this: Mr. and Mrs. Malcolm Hallman 
have sailed for Port Said and a long trip 
up the Nile. Then they e.xpect to spend 
some weeks in India and two months in 
Ceylon before going to Bali and Bangkok 
and Hong Kong. After April in Japan 
they will head for home via Vancouver. 
Well, Malcolm, after Vancouver don't 
linger in Spearfish too long because we 
certainly shall look for you in Lewisburg 
on June 5. 

Ugh, what a day! Callers at 9:30 and 
two cousins, after several days' visit, left 
at 10:00 o'clock. .\ hectic trip to my ear 
doctor at 10:30, to my dentist at 11:30 — 
home, cooked dinner — dishes and then 
calm mj'self sufficiently to write this letter 
for my "gentle readers" if perchance I 
have any such. To top all this, being "a

The entire University family was sad- 
dened by news of the death, on January 
18, 1959, of Edgar A. Snyder, a life-time 
friend and supporter of Bucknell and 
1939-41 president of The General Alumni 

Ed was born in Weaverville on Decem- 
ber 6, 1886, and attended Millersville State 
Normal School before entering Bucknell 
ill 1907. H"is college career displayed bril- 
liance in both athletic and academic af- 
fairs. While at Bucknell he was a member 
of the varsity football team and in 1907 
was named by Bill Roper, the then Prince- 
ton coach, as ail-American center. He was 
elected captain of the varsity in his last 
year. He was elected to membership in 
Sigma Chi fraternity, an organization he 
continued to serve throughout his lifetime. 
He was graduated magna cum laude with 
a B.S. in chemistry in 1911. 

After graduation he entered the chemi- 
cal field and after a short period of ser- 
vice with Youngstown Steel Co. in 
Youngstown, Ohio, joined the Pennsyl- 
vania Railroad Laboratories in Altoona 
serving until 1916. He went then to the 
General Electric Company at Pittsfield, 
Mass., serving there for ten years. In 1925 
he was American representative on the 
International Electrotechnical Commis- 
sion at The Hague, Holland. He joined 
Sacony-Vacuum Oil Company in New 
York City in 1927 and carried ever in- 
creasing responsibilities in that rapidly 
growing organization until his retirement 
December 31, 1951. 

Since graduation Mr. Snyder has main- 
tained an active and continuous interest 
in the afifairs of his Alma Mater. He was 
president of the Metropolitan Alumni 
Club of New York and Northern New 
Jersey, a director of The General Alumni 
Association and served as president in 
1939-41. He was one of the active organ- 
izers of the Bison Club and has served 
Bucknell as an active worker in a num- 
ber of fund raising campaigns. He is a 
member of the Athletic Advisory Com- 
mittee and has served as president of his 
Class of 1911. 

In Sigma Chi fraternity affairs he has 
long been active, serving as building com- 
mittee chairman and officiating at the 

M .\ U C tj 19 5 9 

ground-breaking, cornerstone laying and 
dedication of the new fraternity house 
completed in 1950. 

He has been closely associated with the 
Bucknell Alumni Fund program since its 
inception in 1948, not only in an advisory 
capactity but as a continuous giver to the 
fund and a worker in the program, having 
served in the personal solicitation phase 
of the work as recently as the spring of 

In recognition of his splendid service 
to Bucknell he was elected an alumni 
member of the Board of Trustees of the 
University for a five-year term in 1947. 

He is survived by his wife, the former 
Mary C. Craine of Altoona, and two sons, 
Dr. Richard C. Snyder '40, of the faculty 
of the University of Washington in Se- 
attle, and Robert A. Snyder '42, married 
to the former Dorothy W. Derr '41, and 
an engineer with Grumman Aircraft Cor- 
poration on Long Island, and six grand- 

The heartfelt condolences of the entire 
University family are extended to the sur- 
viving relatives. 

Ed's entire life of service to his Alma 
Mater is perhaps best personified by an 
open letter he wrote for publication in 
1943, when he was serving as national 
alumni chairman of the One Hundredth 
Birthdaj' Capital Gift project, in which he 
said, "Let us alumni change the first line 
of Alma Mater and sing, 'Dear Bucknell, 
now to thee we're giving.' " 

In lieu of flowers, the family has asked 
that contributions be sent to Kappa Chap- 
ter of Sigma Chi Fraternity at IJucknell. 

It is with a deep sense of sorrow that 
we report the death of J. Leslie Crowell. 
Leslie died on December 29, 1958, as a re- 
sult of complications following injuries 
sustained in a fall while he was working 
in his bookshop. Leslie was a member of 
Sigma Chi fraternity, held an A.M. from 
New York University, had taught 36 years 
in Malvern High School and Perth Am- 
boy High School in New Jersey and after 
retiring, owned and operated the Crowell 
Bookshop at Asbury Park, N. J. We send 
our sincere sympathy to his widow, Linnie 
E. Crowell, who is continuing the busi- 
ness. Her address is 1305 Railroad Ave.,

Mary Weiser Jenkins writes — "No trips 
and no news. We are grandparents!"

Your reporter was back for the second 
time in a row to speak at the Chester 
Old Timer's Banquet in January. Eacli 
time I have gone down there I have 
thought of the late "Skin" Worrilow '14, 
the old Bucknell baseball player, Edna 
Whittman ('14) Glover and her late broth- 
er Frank '15 who were Chesterites in their 
school days. Edna is promoting the re- 
union of her Class of '14. That means I 
will have to tote Helen ("Ottie" '1,4 as 
Parks referred to her in the only Christ- 
mas greeting I got from the class outside 
of Tilton and inclusively from Cecelia Kit- 
lowski Starzynski in a card to Helen) up 
to Lewisburg for her 45th. As sorneoiie 
said, "It isn't too wearing to be a grand- 
father but it is a dreadful thing to think 
you are old enough to be married to a 
grandmother." By the by, Cecelia has a 
son Ted. He is a doctor. Last July he 
was called into active service in Lebanon 
for three months where he was the over- 
all commanding surgeon of the American 
Task Force. "This took him away from 
his work, from taking the final exams in 
November to become a certified plastic 
and reconstructive surgeon. Now he will 
have to wait until the spring. Exams are 
given twice a year." We sympathize with 
Cecelia in the loss of her brother, Dr. 
Henry Kitlowski '20.

The Bucknell spirit is still the same won- 
derful one and tlie campus is more beau- 
tiful than ever. There are still familiar 
faculty and administration faces on cam- 
pus and in Lewisburg so why miss the 
chance of a lifetime?

Eleanor Wermouth Henry and Bobbie 
Duane Matthews, the latter in Long 
Beach, L. I., where Bobbie is as petite 
and lovely as ever — as our son, Joe said, 
"she doesn't look a day over thirty!" We 
met her sons, one of whom is at St. Law- 
rence LTniversit}' majoring in business and 
economics, the other one in junior high 
school. Her daughter, L^nn, attends the 
University of Kansas. 

We received another delightful letter 
from Janet Workman Appleton showing 
what a small world it is — our husbands 
worked together in the same company 
long before we were married and have 
had business contacts recenth' without 
knowing that they had wives who knew 
each other. 

We are glad to report that Jane Orwig 
LeMon is well again and busy teaching 
senior high school English. She and Mel

I wish I knew who should receive credit 
for this definition of luck, "when oppor-

From the Lone Star State comes this 
item. Mr. and Mrs. Warren L. Dentler

dream of long standing by the establish- 
ment of a "laboratory home" for alco- 
holics to be operated by the Men's Ser- 
vice Center of which Tom has been di- 
rector for some years. The "la.b" will 
seek to remold the wasted lives of chronic 
public alcoholics, who are trapped in a 
revolving-door process of being hurtled 
back and forth from "Skid Row" to jail.

Now I know what is meant by "draw- 
ing a blank." That's what the sheet from 
the Alumni Office containing "news (if 
any)" was this time. So the day of the 
dark revenge I've been plotting is at hand: 
I'll talk about news chez Miller.

the eighth grade (Fairplain Division) re- 
sumes, and I will be in charge of the 
charges in certain literature and spelling-

No longer will I be able to hedge: "I'm 
not a teacher — I'm a substitute." It oc-

Christmas comes but once a year but 
when it comes, it does bring some news, 
thank heavens! Margie Osborne Henry

months' letter from Royal Oak, Mich., 
that she had heard that Ruthie Braden 
McNamee had moved to 694 Chesterfield

miles from Oz. Oz and Chris liavc four 
youngsters and she is now a Girl .Scout

sounds as hectic as the life of everyone 
else I know. 

Incidentally, your reporter hasn't gotten 
around to writing that book, yet (started, 
but dropped by the wayside I but I do 
liave a new career — giving book reviews 
and readings to various organizations over 
the county. The family thinks it's a riot 
— "imagine anyone paying to listen to 
Mother talk when we have to listen all the 
time for nothing!" It's been lots of fun 
and is sort of snowballing. 

Bunny Herrmann Newcomb's note was 
full of pride as she reported tliat they are 
now residents of that fast growing Buck-

liave burst with pride had he seen Herb 
Heany and Sylvia Cliffe ('45) Williamson 
deliver two-thirds of the sermon on Lay- 
man's Sunday at their church this fall. 
Herb also handled the buying of their new 
home for them, so I would say that he is 
doing his bit to build up a wee corner of 
Bucknell in Jersey! Of course. Bunny. 
herself, is still holding down her usual 
seat in the choir, as well she should with 
her beautiful voice. 

I've said it before, but I'll say it again. 
L'nless some of you who don't normally

was David Kahn . . . He was on an Arm- 
strong Circle Theater re-enactment of a 
poltergeist phenomenon in Long Island. 
He had been the reporter covering the 
story for a Long Island newspaper." Lee 
also reports entertaining Shelley Caine 
Frisch and her husband at dinner. 

Franci Wilkins Brown's original Christ-

May the Browns' hall tree has been dec- 
orated with a bonnet belonging to daugh-

Mr. and Mrs. Frank Kelly (Cecile Con- 
stans) sent their Christmas cards early 
because Cecile and the children — Michael 
and Marc Stephen, who was born in Sep- 
tember of 1958 — were getting ready to 
leave for Paris. Frank planned to join his 
family there for the Christmas holiday 
and then fly back on January 4. Cecile 
says, "I have not set a definite date for 
my return trip, but hope it will be before 
March . . ." 

We also had a card from Jean Bentz 
Burnham. No note — but apparently the 
Burnhams are still living in Watertown, 

Ann Purpuri '52 writes that she has fin- 
ished graduate school and that her father 
died in March, 1958. Both congratul_ations

Finally! We have no backlog of news 
for the first time since I've been the '52 
scrib. So — how about sending an aval- 
anche of information my way? 

News from Maryland: Glen and Bon- 
nie (Mackie '54) Aspinwall write from 
2100 Hannon St., Hyattsville, that Gary 
Robert joined the family on November 23. 
Chip (iVz) and Linda (2) complete the 
Aspinwall "full house." A recent headline 
in the Baltimore Evening Sun stated "Young 
Named City Grid Coach." Next fall, City 
College, one of Baltimore's largest high 
schools, will have George Young as head 
grid mentor. For the past five years, 
George has coached the varsity team at 
Calvert Hall, his Baltimore high school 
alma mater. While I was Christmas shop- 
ping, I ran into Wanda Sullivan Schloed- 
er. She and Nick live at 1566 Waverly 
Way, Baltimore, Md. Wanda is teaching 
at the Rogers Forge Elementary School in 
Towson while Nick teaches and coaches 
at Gilman School.

mas card from Lt. Frank Stefano. A Navy 
career man, Frank's address is 28 Groom 
Place, London, S. W. 1, England. 

Bill and Ruth Castner Ruseling write 
that they have become very happy Con- 
necticut Yankees in their new home — 
Box 34, Windsor St., Buckland, Conn. 

Talk about your dream vacations — 
Marty and Nancy Holter Kwasnoi are 
beating all! (Altho' Standard Oil will 
probably expect a little work from Marty 
along the way). They and son Jeff sailed 
on the Liberie in December for a nine- 
month stay in Europe, Their present ad- 
dress is 140 Rue Frere, Bordeaux, France.

(continued from January issue) 

So deeply did John Mohr's '33 unique 
biographical account impress us that we 
decided to imitate it. Next year we sent 
out our first Rockwellian, as we came to 
call it. And as we followed that with an- 
nual copies, it did something for us quite 
undreamed of at first. Imitation of this 
came from Olive Richards Landers '08, 
far removed by time and distance. Olive 
had seen the letter we sent Peg Weddell 
Brandon '16, and wouldn't we please put 
her on our "subscription list"? It was 
typical of growing response by many old 
friends and acquaintances from whom we 
had long been separated. Regular cor- 
respondence had been impossible, but a 
letter a year could bridge the gap of space 
and time. When we had parted years 
ago, we had not known where they were 
going. Now we were finding out and as 
they began to exchange their news for 
ours, we had the pleasure of following 
them from year to year. 

Christmas, 1957, we sent out Volume 
Nine. As replies came in from widely 
scattered friends at home and abroad, we 
were struck by the way in which they re- 
flected response to problems uppermost in 
our world today. Experiences, word pic- 
tures, ideas, thought-provoking and in- 
formative, were, above all, timely. These 
came not only from Bucknellians, but 
from friends and classmates at other col- 
leges Leo and I have known: Denison, 
where in my freshman year I began life- 
long friendships; the University of Mich- 
igan where we spent some years working 
with dictionaries and Latin American stu- 
dents; and of course, Colgate from which 
Leo recently retired. News from all these 
sources would make a bulky volume, in- 
deed, so I'll stick mostly to Bucknellians. 

EDITOR'S NOTE: This column, the sec- 
ond of a series, will be continued in future

Birthday Dinner 

MAY 1959 


by ARLIE SCHARDT, Sports Information Director 


The winter sports season saw Bucknell win 28 of 38 
varsity contests, including records of 16-7 in basketball, 
6-1 in wrestling, and 6-2 in swimming. The wrestlers 
finished fourth of 18 teams in the Middle Atlantic Con- 
ference championship meet, the swimmers were fifth of IS. 

Hal Danzig was All East center for the second straight 
year, John Ayre won the M. A. C. 130 pound wrestling 
crown, and Bill Barrett became Bucknell's first M. A. C. 
swim champion by splashing home first in the SO yard 
free style in 24.3 seconds. 

Freshman sports were also bright. The frosh cagers 
won 10 of 13, and should provide several key men for 
1 Coach Ben Kribbs next winter. The frosh swimmers 
I were undefeated and capped a brilliant season by winning 
three of the four freshman races in the M. A. C. finals 
and finishing second in the fourth event. They broke eight 
of ten school records and posted some of the fastest times 
in the East, varsity or otherwise. The wrestlers had a 1-2 
mark, but have two or three promising men to help next 
year's varsity. 

The basketball team was hit hard in the last five games 
by injuries and illness, costing them a chance for a post- 
season tourney. Hal Danzig, who set a career rebound 

record of 1134, suffered a broken finger on his left hand 
and was handicapped for the final five games. Jack 
Flanegan missed one full game and parts of others due 
to the flu, and Bob Ericsson was hindered by a recurrence 
of shin splints. 

The whole team rose up for one final efifort, though, 
to score a spectacular victory over Penn State, 74-69, in 
the last game for Danzig, Ericsson, Flanegan, and co-cap- 
tain Ellis Harley. It was Bucknell's 48th win in 71 
games over the last three seasons, and their fifth in the 
last six against Penn State. Kribbs has definitely made 
Bucknell a basketball "name," and next year looks good 

Danzig was All East, All State, and All Conference 
center, and played in the North-South All Star game in 
Raleigh, N. C. Harley was All Carrousel, 2nd team 
M. A. C, and honorable mention All State, while Flanegan 
was honorable mention M. A. C. 

The swimmers lose only three lettermen, the wrestlers 
but one. Bucknell may well be the surprise of the East 
in aquatics next year, as Bob Latour's freshmen come 
of age. Bill Wrabley's wrestlers are traditionally strong. 


Four varsity sports plus spring football will give Buck- 
nell sports fans a full schedule of activities for the spring 
of 1959. Prospects are brighter than last year on all 

Coach Hal Evans, who starts his 30th year as golf 
pro and coach at Bucknell, is blessed with five returning 
lettermen in a sport that calls for six men to compete, so 
the Bisons could well return to the form which brought 
them Middle Atlantic Conference crowns in 19S6 and 
19S7. Last year's linksmen posted a record of five wins 
and eight losses. 

Lettermen coming back with a bag full of clubs in 
i 19S9 are Bill Curtiss, Jerry Lindholm, John McDonald, 
Dick Bartholomew, and George Harder. Promising new- 
comers include Bob Schad, Marlyn Etzweiler, and Steve 

Coach Rod Oberlin launches a 19 game baseball card 
with eight lettermen back in the fold plus some promising 
youngsters. All indications point to a good possibility of 
a winning season this spring, a far cry from last year's 
4-10 mark. 

The key to the Bisons' chances, as seems to be uni- 
versally the case in college baseball, will be the develop- 
ment of a pitching staiif. If Tommy Thompson can im- 
prove his 3-2 record of 19S8, while Frank Moore re- 
covers from a bad shoulder, Bucknell could move up. 
Other possible hurlers include Tony Rinaldo, Dennis Ru- 
ney, newcomer Harry Vizethann, and sophs Jim Morrison 
and Mike Kasnick, the latter showing considerable promise. 

Other lettermen back include Dick Burnett at second 
base, Tony Consentino in center field, Dick Pitko in right 
field, Ron Staley at third base, and Stew Wrigley at first. 
Anchoring the infield is smooth short stop Ellis Harley. 

Last year's Bisons had five hitters over .300 after a 

MAY 1959 

slow start. With a bit of pitching help, then, this could 
be a sound team, since Oberlin reports the Bisons have 
lots of speed and a good defense. Steve Flamhaft will 
replace rugged Larry Mathias at catcher because ]\Iathias' 
duties as football captain mean he will spend the spring on 
the gridiron. 

Coach Hank Peters' tennis team is another one with 
championship aspirations. Helping Peters' omnipresent 
grin is the fact that there is not one senior on the squad. 
To improve on last year's 9-7 overall record is one obvious 
goal, but the Bisons also want to win the undisputed 
M. A. C. Championship which they shared last year with 

Bill Sweet paces the list of returning netters, and 
should be number one all year. The next spot will be a 
scramble between veterans Bob Goecker, Henry Livas, 
Tom Cowen, and Frank Wiegand. Rick Glantz, Jim 
Hand, and Den Sweetman will round out the early trav- 
eling squad, but must battle newcomers like Andy Mclver, 
Richie Wolfe, Frank Lineaweaver, and Paul Pearson, to 
stay there. 

Coach Bus Blum's track teams have lost only two dual 
meets in the last two seasons, but lost several top per- 
formers bv graduation. Blum \^-ill ha-\'e to count heavil}^ 
on his sophomores to keep his fine record intact. 

The sprints look strong again with Dick Merrill, 
Charlie Apgar, and Clint Gilkey in the blocks. Lou Ire- 
land should win his share of javelin events and Lew Hart 
the shot-put competition, while the middle distances find 
co-captain Roger Conners, Arnold Christensen, and John 
Manning as top hopefuls. Co-captain Bob Wright will 
need help in the hurdles and jumps, where the Bisons are 
thin, as they are in the distances, where Dave Lynch is 
the only returnee. 

(Continued on Page 8) 


fore the end of the 1958-59 fund 
year (the fiscal year closes June 30), 
the Bucknell Alumni Annual-Giving 
Fund shows an increase over last year's 
figures. However, it is clear that many 
Bucknellians need a reminder to send 
in their annual gift now if the fund is 
to show the normal growth experienced 
in the past three years. As we go to 
press (April 21, 1959), total contri- 
butions stand at $40,500 from 2,949 
contributors as compared with $36,200 
from 2,721 contributors on the same 
date last year. 

It is in the number of contributors 
that our pace of former years is not 
being met this year and the size of 
our task is indicated by the headline of 
this article — TO MEETOUR 


In the relatively short space of ten 
years, the Alumni Annual-Giving 
Fund has been developed to the point 
where more than $50,000 annually is 
being turned over Ijy former Bucknell 
students to the University for use in 
meeting the University's operating ex- 
penses. Without the fund, it would 
be impossible for the University to 
carry on many educational programs 
which characterize our Alma Mater as 
a great University. Each year since 
the Alumni Fund was established in 
1948, the generosity of Bucknellians 
has marked each fund year with suc- 
cess. But the needs of the University 
grow apace. The challenge of the fu- 
ture for the University is no less 
urgent than that which affects many of 
our national institutions. Accordingly, 
we turn toward the 1958-59 Alumni- 
Giving Fund with a great measure of 
hope. On its success depends the sup- 
port of vital parts of Bucknell's educa- 
tional program. Every former student, 
whether a graduate or not, enjoyed the 
benefit of at least a part of his or her 
education at Bucknell through the gen- 
erosity of past Bucknellians and it is 
believed that all former students will 
take a personal interest in the success 
of the 58-59 Annual-Giving Fund. 


The table of figures on this 


show the class-by-class target for this 
year, indicating the number of contri- 
butions needed (last column) to 
achieve the goal established on the basis 
of growth of the fund during the past 
few years. 

This breaking down of the quota in- 
to class-by-class targets brings the size 
of the job within manageable limits for 
each class. And the quotas have not 
been derived by some involved secret 
formula — for each class they are based 
on the actual past performance of that 
particular class. In other words, in 
each class group the target has been 
established without regard to the per- 
formance of any other group. Thus, 
the goal set is a realistic obtainable 


The Alumni Fund Committee, under 
the able leadership of co-chairmen Dr. 

E. W. Pangburn '15 and Dr. Charles 

F. Fox, Jr. '31, has thus far this year 
planned and executed two mail appeals 
to the general alumni body. That does 
not mean that every alumnus has re- 

ceived two requests for contributions 
for those who responded to the first 
appeal did not receive the second re- 

The first appeal consisted of the 
mailing of the Tenth Annual Fund Re- 
port entitled "26% of the Alumni 
Made the Big Tenth BIG !" This book- 
let report, mailed in mid-November 
provided a complete class-by-class rec- 
ord of last year's giving and suggested 
an early response in order to save the 
printing and postage expense of further 

The second request for a contribu- 
tion consisted of a letter mailed over 
the signature of the class fund man- 
ager. This reminder was sent only to 
those former students who had not re- 
sponded to the first appeal. A grow- 
ing number of class fund managers

The Student View 

htj BOBBIE RUNK '61 


Newsmen s Conference at Bucknell attracts 
prominent newsmen from large eastern newspapers 
and produces interesting results. 

RECENTLY, during the annual Newsmen's Confer- 
ence, Bucknell students entertained on campus several 
prominent newsmen who spoke, presented films, and led 
panel discussions on news events of current interest. De- 
spite the largest snow storm of the year six out of the 
seven gentlemen scheduled to take part arrived to conduct 
a successful conference. The theme of this year's con- 
ference was "How Free is the Free World?". 

The reporters who participated in the conference were 
Clark MollenhofT of Cowles Publications, Walter Rundle 
of Nezvsweek, Theodore Kaghan of the New York Post, 
William Higginbotham of United Press International, 
John F. Quigley, editor of the Union Standard Journal, 
and Clififord A. Thomas of the Williamsport Sun-Gazette. 
These gentlemen also conducted seminars on such topics 
as the free press, the Soviet challenge in Germany, Ameri- 
can security, and the organization of world news coverage, 
with each reporter leading the discussions in his special 
field of interest. The panel discussions centered around 
the subjects of hypocrisy within our democracy and 
tyranny in the non-communist world. 

Several weeks before the conference took place, stu- 
dents in an advanced political science course conducted 
a rather extensive public opinion poll, among selected 
Bucknellians, concerning four current political issues which 
related to the theme of the conference. The four issues 
covered were segregation, the loyalty oath, the Berlin 
crisis, and the Cuban revolt. The results of the poll, 
which were kept separate for men and women, indicated 
that the habit of reading a newspaper regularly is not com- 
mon to at least half of those who participated. The men 
appeared to have more newspaper exposure than the wo- 

In general, the question and answer periods revealed a 
much greater optimism about the state of our own country 
on the part of the guest newsmen than on that of the stu- 
dents themselves. Concerning segregation, Mr. Rundle 
stated that propaganda has unjustifiably emphasized its 
importance in the United States, and although we definitely 
have a problem, it is not the greatest problem of segrega- 
tion that has existed. In India, for example, one can find 
the most degrading and appalling segregation in existence 
in the form of the caste system which is the peoples' very 
way of life. We are on the defensive ; we must admit we 
have the problem and are facing up to it. 

In answer to a pessimistic student editorial on the evils 
of large corporations and business monopolies, Mr. Rundle 
reported that high industrial taxes are making it more and 
more difficult for these monopolies to survive. Our prob- 
lem is that we haven't told this to the rest of the world 
adequately. There is less monopoly of big business in this 
country today than there has been for about SO years, ac- 
cording to Mr. Higginbotham of U. P. I. 

MAY 1 g 58 

Mr. Higginbotham says there are hypocritical phases 
in every area of life. If one chooses to discriminate, then 
put it on public record. The good thing about a democ- 
racy is that time will take care of things. The people may 
be wrong, but they will keep looking and will usually find 
a pretty good answer. "The essence of democracy is not 
hypocrisy, but an open fight against it, in an open forum 
by free men, the conquering of it, and its rise again only 
to be fought." 

The Newsmen's Conference began many years ago, 
but the interest of the student body gradually waned. In 
1953 Professor DuWors who has since left Bucknell, re- 
opened a new series, and students have accepted the major 
portion of responsibility for the organization and planning 
of the conference. Here is a priceless opportunity — and 
one which is unique to Bucknell University so far as we 
know — to learn firsthand of the news which is making 
history today. The questions of the attending students 
were intelligent and showed considerable thought. The 
chief drawback was the limited amount of time allotted for 
each discussion. But despite excellent publicity on the 
part of the committee, a well organized conference, and 
the reputation of the guest newsmen, the attendance was 
not good, unfortunately. 

Let us examine some of the results of the conference 
which I have mentioned. It was rather surprising to find 
that the "hardboiled" news reporters were more optimistic 
concerning conditions in the United States than were the 
students. One reason for this may be that, as the student 
poll pointed out, we are relatively uninformed on the pres- 
ent conditions, and are basing our judgments on facts which 
are now history. But more important than this, we are 
about to go out into the world and find ourselves face to 
face with such problems as industrial taxes and business 
monopolies. The prospects do not look good. However, 
the people whose generation the newsmen represent have 
discovered that it is possible to live with and deal with 
such problems. It's the old story of the school of ex- 

Those people immediately concerned with setting up 
the program, who spent a great deal of time in planning 
and preparation, were rather disappointed in that the at- 
tendance was not as good as was anticipated. We often 
do not have the time, or cannot take the time to keep our- 
selves intelligently informed about the outside world, and 
hence, those students brought the news to the rest of us 
in the person of the men whose job it is to know the news. 
Not only can we be sympathetic toward the feelings of 
these people, but we can be thankful that such people are 
present here on the Bucknell campus. It is this core of 
students, which I mentioned in another article, that is 
working to fight the apathy on campus. And as long as 
there are students like these there will be programs at 
Bucknell such as the Newsmen's Conference.

will be distributed at this time. 

At the conch ision of the class meetings at noon, all 
alumni will assemble in their regalia and will parade by 
classes to Davis Gymnasium for the All-Alumni Luncheon 
at 12:15 P. M. It is expected that over 1,000 Alumni 
will hear President Odgers' State of the University ad- 
dress. A special feature of the luncheon program will 
be the presentation of special awards to three outstand- 
ing Alumni. 

In the afternoon, class socials at 3 :00 P. M. will be 
held by all reuning classes. The locations of these class 
socials will be printed in the programs available at the 
registration desks in the Carnegie Building. 

Fraternity and sorority symposia begin the evening 
festivity at 6:00 P. M. Information relative to this part 
of the program will be mailed to members by their re- 
spective fraternities and sororities. 

Later Saturday evening, there will be a variety of in- 
teresting entertainment, but high on the list of "must" 
activities will be a visit to the beautiful, new, air-condi- 
tioned University Theatre where Cap and Dagger will 
present an English comedy by J. M. Barrie entitled "The 
Admirable Crichton." You are urged not to miss this 
side-splitting presentation, which describes the English 
social class status and what happens to it on a desert isle 
when the chips are down. 

Rounding out the festivities for the day will be the 
Alumni Jamboree at 9:00 P. M. This all campus get- 
together will provide light entertainment and dancing to 
Mai Arter's ('49) Orchestra in Davis Gymnasium. Plan 
to attend both the Cap and Dagger production and the 
Alumni Jamboree for an enjoyable evening. 


Baccalaureate for the graduating seniors on Sunday 
at 8:00 P. M. will spotlight the Sunday program with 
Bishop Gerald H. Kennedy, Bishop of Methodist Church- 
es in the Los Angeles area, delivering the sermon. 


Commencement exercises on Monday at 10 :00 A. M. 
in Davis Gymnasium will be the final feature of the week 
end. Dr. Richard A. Kern, distinguished physician, teacher 
and naval officer, will deliver the Commencement address 
and will receive an honorary degree. Honorary degrees 
will also be given to Bishop Kennedy ; Mr. David Burpee, 
member of the Board of Trustees of Bucknell University 
and President of the W. Atlee Burpee Company ; Mr. 
Alfred A. Knopf, Chairman of the Board and Director of 
the publishing firm, Alfred A. Knopf Incorporated ; and 
Dr. William R. White '26, Chairman of the Board of 
Trustees of Bucknell University and Vice President of 
the Guaranty Trust Company of New York. 

It's going to be a great week end on the Bucknell 
campus — a fun filled week end you can't afi^ord to miss. 
Make your reservations today ! 


(Continued trom Page 5) 


Although Coach Bob Odell can't promise any miracles 
in 1959, there is no doubt in anyone's mind that Buck- 
nell will field a considerably stronger football team than 
last year's eleven. In fact, the season has several aspects 
which make it as interesting as anyone could ask for. 

In the first place, of course, is the fact that the team 
must rebound from last fall's showing of one win in 

nine outings. Secondly, the schedule is an even greater ! 
challenge than before, but third, and this is the bright 
side — there are 29 tough young sophomores knocking at 
the gates trying for starting berths. L 

So spring practice, 1959 version, is going to be one '<■ 
of the most important Bucknell has ever had. There will 
be 52 candidates reporting, and this size in numbers alone 
is a good indication of things to come, since Bucknell last 
year was able to suit up only 30 varsity players at times. 

In fact, 1958's lack of depth was the major factor in 
Bucknell's weak showing, since the Bisons were battling 
on even terms for three quarters in many contests, but 
simply could not match the opposition in its ability to sup- 
ply fresh reserves for the final 15 minutes. 

Bucknell has 15 lettermen back in camp, having lost 
seven via graduation. The varsity might see several soph- 
omores nudging lettermen from starting assignments, 
which is fine, but the varsity faces its strongest competition 
at the start, which is a shame. 

This means Odell will have to put a young and inex- 
perienced team on the field against teams like Harvard, 
Bufi^alo, and Rutgers. Harvard had a fine team last 
fall and is better this year, while Buffalo and Rutgers 
handed the Bisons their two worst lickings in 1958, and 
are again loaded with power. 

Bucknell was a colorful and exciting team despite its 
1958 record, and will be even more exciting this fall. 
Odell says the one big change in style will be "a lot more 
passing." Yet Bucknell last year was one of the top 
passing teams in the East, and quarterback Paul Terhes 
won the M. A. C. passing and total offense titles. 

Strong spots in addition to quarterback are pleasant- 
ly plentiful, on paper, at least. The guard position, where 
Bucknell was buried under injuries last year, ironically 
appears to be the deepest post this spring, due to the pres- 
ence of no less than eight eager young sophomores for 
Assistant Coach Bill Wrabley to choose from. 

Wrabley is also cheered by the presence of captain 
Larry Mathias at center, rugged Bob Patzwall at right 
tackle, and the move of versatile Denny Cox to end. Cox's 
toughness will add strength to the end position, which 
is the spot where more depth is still needed. 

In the backfield, sophomores Ashton Ditka and Bill 
Urch could give Bucknell a pair of bull-like speedsters at 
the halfback posts, although they will have to out-buck 
three lettermen to win their spurs. Fullback is wide open. 

Odell's biggest problems, then, include strengthening 
the end and fullback spots, more depth needed at tackle, 
and, basically, the preparation of a sophomore laden team | 
to play a lot of football. "We have to count on them a ' 
great deal," says Odell seriously. 

Odell figures that Rutgers and Delaware are again 
best equipped in the M. A. C. race, vi^ith Lehigh and La- 
fayette, who had young teams in 1958, not far behind.

Potter '07, Dr. Charles Francis 

"The Great Religious Leaders" 

Simon & Schuster 

This beautifully printed and bound 
volume is a revision and up-dating of 
the author's The Story oj Religion, 
which has been in demand since its 
publication in 1929. The new volume 
takes advantage of the many scholar- 
ly advances in its field in the past gen- 
eration ; it has profited especially by 
the insights gained from the editing of 
the so-called Dead Sea Scrolls, of which 
Dr. Potter made a critical evaluation in 
his paperback The Lost Years of Jesus 
Revealed (Gold Medal Book, 50 cents), 
published in May, 1958, and devoted 
exclusively to the Scrolls. 

In a brief review it is impossible to 
do justice to The Great Religious Lead- 
ers. In it Dr. Potter has reviewed the 
lives and teachings of the world's re- 
ligious pioneers from the Egyptian Ak- 
henaten (1388-1358 B. C.) to the pres- 
ent. Included are sympathetic but ob- 
jective accounts of Moses, Zoroaster, 
Jeremiah, Buddha, Confucius, the Es- 
sene "Teacher of Righteousness", and 
Muhammad, and in the Christian tra- 
dition Jesus, Paul, Augustine, the An- 
glo-Saxon Patrick who Christianized 
Ireland, Luther, the Russian Nicon, 
and Wesley. 

Together with Luther are considered 
the precursors and founders of the 
Protestant Reformation — WyclifTe, 
Huss, Savonarola, Erasmus, Zwingli, 
Melanchton, and Calvin : with Augus- 
tine, the early Christian Fathers, and 
important figures in the developing 
Eastern Orthodox and Roman church- 
es to the time of Jerome. 

The later English tradition is rep- 
resented by succinct characterizations 
of John Bunyan, George Fox, John 
Murray, and General Booth. And the 
American contribution is adequately 
discussed in portraits of Roger Wil- 
liams, Jonathan Edwards, Ellery Chan- 
ning, Joseph Smith, William Miller, 
Robert Ingersoll, Phineas Quimby, and 
Mary Baker Eddy. To a layman like 
myself the treatment of these Ameri- 
cans makes a special appeal ; Dr. Pot- 
ter's view of them is at once irenic and 

A concluding chapter on the future 
of religion and an appendix on "leader- 
less religions" end the text. These are 
follov\'ed by an index which will make 
the volume more useable for reference 
after the first reading. 

In a land in which, despite our poli- 
cy of toleration, first established by 
Roger Williams and firmly embedded 
in our tradition, there too often persists 
a bigotry begotten of ignorance and 
parochial loyalties, this book should 
be of great influence. If we are ever 

MAY 1959 

to have one world, the emphasis must 
shift in religion from emphasizing 
group dift'erences, to recognizing the 
basic similarities in the various faiths. 
Dr. Potter's style is popular in the best 
sense of that word ; he avoids technical 
theological jargon. It should be a 
cause of pride to Bucknell that one of 
her graduates has created in this book 
so great a contribution to peace and 
goodwill in religious life. 

An Extraordinary Ministry 


Rev. Edwin W. Rumsey '06 

As the Philadelphia Baptist Asso- 
ciation concluded a year-long cele- 
bration of its 250th anniversary, it 
cited the services of three veteran 
pastors of the city. One of them 
was Miss Flora M. Clymer, mis- 
sionary founder and pastor for 56 
years of Greenwich Light Baptist 
Church. Miss Clymer is a graduate 
of Bucknell Institute, Class of 1893. 

While employed as a secretary in 
downtown Philadelphia in 1901 she 
became concerned about the men 
on the ships which docked at the 
coal piers at Greenwich Point on 
the Delaware River, and felt called 
of God to do something for them. 
She chose the spot on which to 
build a church, leased the land from 
the Pennsylvania Railroad, person- 
ally solicited building materials and 
labor, and in two months time the 
building was completed and her life- 
long ministry began. 

Miss Clymer was a prodigious 
worker and "The Seamen's Gospel 
Mission," as it was first called, was 
kept open every day, a Sunday 
School was organized, and the fu- 
ture was bright with promise. 

Then came a crisis. The residents 
of that area raised pigs for a living. 
The city gave notice that the pigs 
— 60,000 in number — must be dis- 
posed of in ten days. Seeing that 
the livelihood of her humble par- 
ishioners was at stake, Miss Cly- 
mer persuaded Mayor Weaver to 
intervene. As a result her people 
were allowed to keep their pigs for 
more than ten years and the crisis 
was averted. 

In 1916 the mission was organized 
as the Greenwich Light Baptist 
Church, with 63 charter members 
and Miss Clymer was elected pas- 
tor for life. During all these years 
she has refused to accept a salary. 

The work among seamen at the 
coaling station continued with great 
interest until the close of World 
War L In the first five years Miss 
Clymer ministered to 20,000 sea- 
men. At the close of the War the 
ground on which the building stood 
was commandeered by the Govern- 
ment and the church was compelled 
to relocate. Subsequent years have 
witnessed a slow yet continuous 
growth. Most of the older group 
have passed av\'ay. The present 
membership still numbers more than 
100, but they are widely scattered.

and their assistants are lending their 
aid to this program. All of the 63 
Bucknell classes have class fund man- 
agers and in 9 of those classes, assis- 
tants to a total of 155 have been or- 
ganized. Another dozen classes are 
now in the process of recruiting assis- 
tant class fund managers. The classes 
already having assistants are 1906- 
Frank L. Yost, manager ; 1949-Rich- 
ard D. Atherley, 1951-Raymond W. 
Tallau, 1953-Joan MacBain Stettler, 
19S4-Joan Herrmann Richmond, 1955- 
Richard M. Richter, 1956-Edward W. 
Burg, Jr., 1957-William S. Moyer, 
1958-JefI Jefferson. The assistant 
class fund managers undertake the task 
of personally writing notes of appeal 
to ten or fifteen of their classmates. 
Obviously, this personal touch has 
proved a most effective means of re- 
minding classmates to mail their an- 
nual gifts. 


The third appeal is the personal so- 
licitation phase of the fund program. 
Personal solicitation, as the name im- 
plies, consists of recruiting enough 
Bucknellians who are willing to visit 
five Bucknell neighbors and remind 
them of the Bucknell Alumni Annual- 
Giving program. Started in 1954, per- 
sonal solicitation has been a success 
and will grow by leaps and bounds as 
soon as prospective volunteer agents 
can be convinced that working on the 
personal solicitation program is not 
"begging" but is simply reminding an 
ahmmus of the benefits he or she re- 
ceived on the Bucknell campus. 

The histoi')' of personal solicitation 
at Bucknell is rather interesting. It 
was begun in the spring of 1945 in 
three pilot areas to determine whether 
telephone contacts, mail contacts, or 
personal visits v^'ere most effective. It 
was soon discovered that personal con- 
tacts produced 50% contributions, mail 
contacts produced 8% results and tele- 
phones produced .8% results. Expand- 
ed to ten cities in 1955 and 1956. to 19 
cities in 1957 and to 41 cities last year, 
over 500 alumni assisted as volunteer 
agents in the program in the spring 
of 1958. 

To put the program into effect 
throughout the United States will re- 
quire about 3,000 volunteer agents, so 
it will be seen that a tremendous po- 
tential for future growth exists. Every 
alumnus can help to bring the size of 
the job within manageable units by 
volunteering to serve as regional chair- 
man, captain or agent. Of course, 
there is another, much more simple and 
easier solution — send your annual con- 
tribution to the Alumni Fund office,

Alumni Headquarters makes a contin- 
uous survey to determine the whereabouts 
and activities of our oldest living alumnus 
and oldest living alumna in the Female 
Institute, the Academy, and the College. 

While our alumni records of birth dates 
are not complete, present information 
available indicates that the oldest living 
student in the Academy is Brittain G. 
Roth Acad. 75-76 of Allentown, who was 
born on November 22, 1861. 

Miss Emma Baker I'SS of Miami, Fla., 
who was born on October 29, 1865, seems 
to be the oldest living graduate of the Fe- 
male Institute. 

In the College department The Rev. 
James M. Paterson '92 of Wilmington, 
Del., who was born in Scotland on Febru- 
ary 16, 1863, seems to be the oldest living 
alumnus of the College while Mrs. S. E. 
Downs (Ruth H. Sprague '98) of Nar- 
berth, who was born on March 26, 1873, 
seems to be the oldest living alumna of 
the College. Can anyone challenge these 
four Bucknellians in the then three de- 
partments of the University? If so. Alum- 
ni Headquarters at Lewisburg would like 
to know. 

In making the annual search for the 
oldest living Bucknellians, Alumni Head- 
quarters often receives heartwarming mes- 
sages from these former students. Among 
those recently reaching the alumni office 
was a message from Miss Mary E. Butler 
r93 who was a Christmas baby, born De- 
cember 25, 1873, at Montandon. For many 
years, Mary has lived in California and 
has been unable to revisit the Bucknell 
campus. In a recent note she says, "Thirty 
years ago I came to California where I'll 
continue to reside for the remainder of 
my life. Always my best wishes for the 
continued growth and success of Buck- 

riculum at Bucknell," based on the music 
program at Harvard. 

Now, at eighty-one years of age, he is 
still singing in the choir at St. Mary's 
Episcopal Church in Ardmore. In March 
the choir sang Gounod's St. Celia Mass 
and Bucknell was well represented — Mrs. 
John S. Burlew (Grace Schaum '30) and 
Mr. Ward C. Elwell (father of John C. 
Elwell, a junior at Bucknell) were also 
members of the choir.

The address for Marion A. Carringer, 
Esq., is still Tionesta. For many years he 
was president of the Class of 1900 and in 
1951 was president of the Emeritus Club. 
His daughters are both graduates of 
Bucknell. Dorothy J. Carringer was grad- 
uated with the Class of 1951 as was her 
husband, Donald M. Smith. The Smiths 
are located in Pittsburgh. Rachel M. Car- 
ringer was graduated in 1941 and she and 
her husband, Robert Hauth, also live in 
Tionesta. Marion's son, Robert, attended 
Bucknell with the Class of 1946 and since 
his return from World War II has been 
making Tionesta his home.

in the INITIAL GIFTS phase of the campaign 

the $1,850,000 goal totalled close to the quota of $600,- 
000 — roughly 1/3 of the way — with some initial donors 
still unreported. This phase of the campaign has been 
advanced largely through the generosity and effort of the 
members of the Bucknell Board of Trustees. The latest 
major "boost" to the initial gifts effort was provided by 
$100,000 claimed through the 1-4 matching provision of 
the Samuel H. Kress Foundation as donations to uni- 

versity endowment made by others topped $400,000. A 
recent gift to endowment by Mrs. Ellen Clarke Bertrand 
of the Board of Trustees brought the total over the re- 
quired matching amount. The Kress Foundation match- 
ing arrangement is one of three such challenges posed in 
the Dual Development Fund Campaign, the other two 
being provided by the F. W. OHn Foundation and the 
Christian R. and Marv F. Lindback Foundation.

Precious Intangibles 

The Dual Development Fund Campaign is a balanced 
eft'ort to finance building needs (_ dormitory renovation and 
an administration center) and to finance through additions 
to endowment the "precious intangibles" of superior teach- 
ing. Of the campaign total, $750,000 will be used for the 
latter purpose. In this campaign progress report insert, 
Bucknell joins other colleges and universities in focusing 
the attention of alumni and alumnae — and the American 
people in general — on the importance of the college teacher. 



"VT'OU MAY OR MAY NOT recognize this Bucknell teacher by name.* 
The important recognition is what he does and what he stands for. 
He is one of 170 on the Bucknell campus. He and his colleagues are 
carefully selected. The number of Ph.D.'s among them is far above the 
national average of 37%. He is therefore the product of a long, expensive, 
disciplined, intellectual training. Bucknell must compete for his services 
in a national market along side of great private universities with many 
times Bucknell's endowment and universities with tax resources. 

He, his colleagues, and their predecessors have shaped the minds and 
lives of some 40,000 men and women students over Bucknell's 113 year 
histor)', 17,000 of whom live today in every state and some 45 foreign 
countries. That's a sizeable life-influence, and it spreads as the taught 
teach and serve others through their professions, businesses, homes and 
communities. It is an intellectual chain-reaction ; it is a leaven of multi- 
tudes ; it is a kind of immortality. 

Bucknell has a proud institutional history. Bucknell is a campus of 
great beauty. Bucknell is a collection of generally superior buildings, 
facilities, and all-round programs. But in the deepest sense, Bucknell is 
this teacher and his colleagues. He believes in what he is doing. We, too, 
must believe in him and in the importance of what he does. Bucknell's 
future — and that of American societ}' and the free world — may well depend 
on him and our support of him. 


* We are sure you do recognise him jor he is our beloved Dr. James 
A. Gathings, chairman of the Department of Political Science.

''If I were sitting here 

and the whole outside world 

were indifferent to what I 

was doing, I would still want 

to be doing just what lam!' 


There are many reasons, not all of them tangible 
things which can be pulled out and explained. I still 
hear people say, "Those who can, do; those who 
can't, teach." But there are many teachers who can. 
They are teachers because they have more than the 
usual desire to communicate. They are excited enough 
about something to want to tell others, have others 
love it as they love it, tell people the how of some- 
thing, and the why. 

I like to see students who will carry the intellectual 
spark into the world beyond my time. And I like to 
think that maybe I have something to do with this. 


A professor doesn't punch a time clock. He is allowec 
the responsibility of planning his own time and activi 
ties. This freedom of movement provides something 
very valuable — time to think and consider. 

I've always had the freedom to teach what I believe 
to be true. I have never been interfered with in whai 
I wanted to say — either in the small college or in the 
large university. I know there have been and are in 
fringements on academic freedom. But they've nevei 
happened to me. 

TEACHER: 1959 


I'm still eager about many of the things I was eager 
about as a young man. It is gratifying to see bright 
young men and women excited and enthusiastic about 
scholarship. There are times when I feel that I'm only 
an old worn boulder in the never-ending stream of 
students. There are times when I want to flee, when I 
look ahead to a quieter life of contemplation, of 
reading things I've always wanted to read. Then a 
brilliant and likeable human being comes along, 
whom I feel I can help — and this makes it all the 
more worthwhile. When I see a young teacher get a 
start, I get a vicarious feeling of beginning again. 

TEACHER: 1959 


I find it difficult to be glib about this. There are maj 
problems to be faced. There is this business of salarie 
of status and dignity, of anti-intellectualism, of tc 
much to do in too little time. But these are problem 
not drawbacks. A teacher doesn't become a teachi 
in spite of them, but with an awareness that thf 
exist and need to be solved. 


Terms hke "egghead" tend to suggest that the in- 
tellectual is something hke a toadstool — almost phys- 
ically different from everyone else. America is ob- 
sessed with stereotypes. There is a whole spectrum of 
personahties in education, all individuals. The notion 
that the intellectual is somebody totally removed from 
what himian beings are supposed to be is absurd. 


3M i. i , ^ m t4 'mi^*'*m 


But we are here for only a limited time, and I would 
rather spend such time as I have thinking about the 
meaning of the universe and the purpose of man, than 
doing something else. I've spent hours in libraries 
and on park benches, escaping long enough to do a 
Uttle thinking. I can be found occasionally sitting 
out there with sparrows perching on me, almost. 

"JVe may always be running Just to keep 
from falling behind. But the person who 
is a teacher because he wants to teach, 
because he is deeply interested in people 
and scholarship, will pursue it as long as 
he can." — LoRJEN C. Eiseley 


-HE CIRCUMSTANCE is a Strange one. In recen 

years Americans have spent more money on the trappings o 

higher education than ever before in history. Mon 

parents than ever have set their sights on a college educatioi 

for their children. More buildings than eve 

have been put up to accommodate the crowds. But in thi 

midst of this national preoccupation with highe 

education, the indispensable element in education— th( 

teacher — somehow has been overlooked 

The results are unfortunate — not only for college teachers, bu 

for college teaching as well, and for all whose lives it touches 

If allowed to persist, present conditions could lea( 

to so serious a decline in the excellence of higher educatioi 

that we would require generations to recover from it 

Among educators, the problem is the subjec 

of current concern and debate and experiment. What is missing 

and urgently needed, is full public awareness of th 

problem — and full public support of measures to deal with it 

H * 

X Xere is a task for the college alumnus and alumna. No on^ 

knows the value of higher education better thai 

the educated. No one is better able to take action, and t( 

persuade others to take action, to preserve and increase its value 

Will they do it? The outUnes of the problem, and somi 

guideposts to action, appear in the pages that follow 


Vo; there will always be someone to fill classroom vacancies. But 
juality is almost certain to drop unless something is done quickly 



The number of students enrolled in America's 
colleges and universities this year exceeds last 

ear's figure by more than a quarter million. In ten years 
should pass six million — nearly double today's en- 

The number of teachers also may have to double. Some 
Iducators say that within a decade 495,000 may be needed 

-more than twice the present number. 

Can we hope to meet the demand? If so, what is Ukely 

) happen to the quahty of teaching in the process? 
i "Great numbers of youngsters will flood into our col- 

iges and universities whether we are prepared or not," a 
iiport of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of 

caching has pointed out. "These youngsters will be 
i lught — taught well or taught badly. And the demand for 
pachers will somehow be at least partly met — if notwith 

ell-prepared teachers then with ill-prepared, if not with 

iperior teachers then with inferior ones." 


OST IMMEDIATE is the problem of finding enough 
qualified teachers to meet classes next fall. Col- 
lege administrators must scramble to do so. 
( "The staffing problems are the worst in my 30 years' 
{■cperience at hiring teaching stafiT," said one college presi- 
lent, replying to a survey by the U.S. Office of Educa- 
Lon's Division of Higher Education. 
I "The securing and retaining of well-trained, effective 
bachers is the outstanding problem confronting all col- 
leges today," said another. 

' One logical place to start reckoning with the teacher 
nortage is on the present faculties of American colleges 
nd universities. The shortage is hardly alleviated by the 
iict that substantial numbers of men and women find it 
ecessary to leave college teaching each year, for largely 

financial reasons. So serious is this problem — and so 
relevant is it to the college alumnus and alumna — that a 
separate article in this report is devoted to it. 

The scarcity of funds has led most coUeges and uni- 
versities to seek at least short-range solutions to the 
teacher shortage by other means. 

Difficulty in finding young new teachers to fill faculty 
vacancies is turning the attention of more and more ad- 
ministrators to the other end of the academic Une, where 
tried and able teachers are about to retire. A few institu- 
tions have modified the upper age limits for faculty. Others 
are keeping selected faculty members on the payroll past 
the usual retirement age. A number of institutions are 
filling their own vacancies with the cream of the men and 
women retired elsewhere, and two organizations, the Asso- 
ciation of American Colleges and the American Associa- 
tion of University Professors, with the aid of a grant from 
the Ford Foundation, have set up a "Retired Professors 
Registry" to facilitate the process. 

Old restraints and handicaps for the woman teacher are 
disappearing in the coUeges. Indeed, there are special 
opportunities for her, as she earns her standing alongside 
the man who teaches. But there is no room for com- 
placency here. We can no longer take it for granted that 
the woman teacher will be any more available than the 
man, for she exercises the privilege of her sex to change 
her mind about teaching as about other matters. Says 
Dean Nancy Duke Lewis of Pembroke College: "The day 
has passed when we could assume that every woman who 
earned her Ph.D. would go into college teaching. She 
needs something positive today to attract her to the col- 
leges because of the welcome that awaits her talents in 
business, industry, government, or the foundations. Her 
freedom to choose comes at a time when undergraduate 
women particularly need distinguished women scholars to 



inspire them to do their best in the classroom and labo- 
ratory — and certainly to encourage them to elect college 
teaching as a career." 

forced to accelerate promotions and salary increases 
in order to attract and hold faculty members. Many 
are being forced to settle for less qualified teachers. 

In an effort to attract and keep teachers, most colleges 
are providing such necessities as improved research facili- 
ties and secretarial help to reUeve faculty members of 
paperwork and administrative burdens, thus giving faculty 
members more time to concentrate on teaching and 

In the process of revising their curricula many colleges 
are eliminating courses that overlap one another or are 
considered frivolous. Some are increasing the size of 
lecture classes and eliminating classes they deem too small. 

Finally, somewhat in desperation (but also with the 
firm conviction that the technological age must, after all, 
have something of value to offer even to the most basic 
and fundamental exercises of education), experiments are 
being conducted with teaching by films and television. 

At Perm State, where televised instruction is in its ninth 
semester, TV has met with mixed reactions. Students 
consider it a good technique for teaching courses with 

large enrollments — and their performance in courses em- 
ploying television has been as good as that of students 
having personal contact with their teachers. The reaction 
of faculty members has been less favorable. But accept- 
ance appears to be growing: the number of courses offered 
on television has grown steadily, and the number of faculty 
members teaching via TV has grown, also. 

Elsewhere, teachers are far from unanimity on the sub- 
ject of TV. "Must the TV technicians take over the col- 
leges?" asked Professor Ernest Earnest of Temple Uni- 
versity in an article title last fall. "Like the conventional 
lecture system, TV lends itself to the sausage-stuffing con- 
cept of education," Professor Earnest said. The classroom, 
he argued, "is the place for testing ideas and skills, for the 
interchange of ideas" — objectives difficult to attain when 
one's teacher is merely a shadow on a fluorescent screen. 

The TV pioneers, however, believe the medium, used 
properly, holds great promise for the future. 

FOR THE LONG RUN, the traditional sources of supply 
for college teaching fall far short of meeting the de- 
mand. The Ph.D., for example, long regarded by 
many colleges and universities as the ideal "driver's 
license" for teachers, is awarded to fewer than 9,000 
persons per year. Even if, as is probable, the number of 
students enrolled in Ph.D. programs rises over the next 


ifew years, it will be a long time before they have traveled 
I the full route to the degree. 

Meanwhile, the demand for Ph.D.'s grows, as industry, 
consulting firms, and government compete for many of the 
men and women who do obtain the degree. Thus, at the 
very time that a great increase is occurring in the number 
of undergraduates who must be taught, the supply of new 
college teachers with the rank of Ph.D. is even shorter 
than usual. 

"During each of the past four years," reported the 
National Education Association in 1958, "the average 
level of preparation of newly employed teachers has 
fallen. Four years ago no less than 31.4 per cent of the 
new teachers held the earned doctor's degree. Last year 
only 23.5 per cent were at this high level of preparation." 

HERE ARE SOME of the causcs of concern about the 
Ph.D., to which educators are directing their 
► The Ph.D. program, as it now exists in most graduate 
schools, does not sufficiently emphasize the development 
of teaching skills. As a result, many Ph.D.'s go into 
teaching with Uttle or no idea how to teach, and make 
a mess of it when they try. Many who don't go into 
teaching might have done so, had a greater emphasis been 
laid upon it when they were graduate students. 

► The Ph.D. program is indefinite in its time require- 
ments: they vary from school to school, from department 
to department, from student to student, far more than 
seems warranted. "Generally the Ph.D. takes at least 
four years to get," says a committee of the Association 
of Graduate Schools. "More often it takes six or seven, 
and not infrequently ten to fifteen. ... If we put our heads 
to the matter, certainly we ought to be able to say to a 
good student: 'With a leeway of not more than one year, 
it will take you so and so long to take the Ph.D.' " 

► "Uncertainty about the time required," says the 
Association's Committee on PoUcies in Graduate Educa- 
tion, "leads in turn to another kind of uncertainty — 
financial uncertainty. Doubt and confusion on this score 
have a host of disastrous effects. Many superior men, 
facing unknowns here, abandon thoughts about working 
for a Ph.D. and reaUstically go off to law or the Uke. . . ." 

A LTHOUGH ROUGHLY HALF of the teachers in Amer- 
/\ ica's colleges and universities hold the Ph.D., more 
-^ ^ than three quarters of the newcomers to college 
and university teaching, these days, don't have one. In 
the years ahead, it appears inevitable that the proportion 
of Ph.D.'s to non-Ph.D.'s on America's faculties wiU 

Next in line, after the doctorate, is the master's degree. 

For centuries the master's was "the" degree, until, with 
the growth of the Ph.D. in America, it began to be moved 
into a back seat. In Great Britain its prestige is still high. 

But in America the M. A. has, in some graduate schools, 
deteriorated. Where the M.A.'s standards have been kept 
high, on the other hand, able students have been able to 
prepare themselves, not only adequately but well, for 
college teaching. 

Today the M.A. is one source of hope in the teacher 
shortage. "If the M.A. were of universal dignity and 
good standing," says the report of the Committee on 
PoUcies in Graduate Education, ". . . this ancient degree 
could bring us succor in the decade ahead. . . . 

"The nub of the problem ... is to get rid of 'good' and 
'bad' M.A.'s and to set up generally a 'rehabilitated' de- 
gree which will have such worth in its own right that 
a man entering graduate school will consider the possi- 
bility of working toward the M.A. as the first step to the 
Ph.D " 

One problem would remain. "If you have a master's 
degree you are still a mister and if you have a Ph.D., no 
matter where it is from, you are a doctor," Dean G. Bruce 
Dearing, of the University of Delaware, has said. "The 
town looks at you differently. Business looks at you dif- 
ferently. The dean may; it depends on how discriminating 
he is." 

The problem won't be solved, W. R. Dennes, former 
dean of the graduate school of the University of Cahfomia 
at Berkeley, has said, "until universities have the courage 
... to select men very largely on the quality of work they 
have done and soft-pedal this matter of degrees." 

A point for parents and prospective students to remem- 
ber — and one of which alumni and alumnae might re- 
mind them — is that counting the number of Ph.D.'s in a 
college catalogue is not the only, or even necessarily the 
best, way to judge the worth of an educational institution 
or its faculty's abilities. To base one's judgment solely on 
such a count is quite a temptation, as William James noted 
56 years ago in "The Ph.D. Octopus": "The dazzled read- 
er of the list, the parent or student, says to himself, 'This 
must be a terribly distinguished crowd — their titles shine 
like the stars in the firmament; Ph.D.'s, Sc.D.'s, and 
Litt.D.'s bespangle the page as if they were sprinkled over 
it from a pepper caster.' " 

The Ph.D. will remain higher education's most honored 
earned degree. It stands for a depth of scholarship and 
productive research to which the master has not yet 
addressed himself so intensively. But many educational 
leaders expect the doctoral programs to give more em- 

phasis to teaching. At the same time the master's degree 
will be strengthened and given more prestige. 

In the process the graduate schools will have taken a 
long step toward solving the shortage of quahfied coUege 

SOME OF THE CHANGES being made by colleges and 
universities to meet the teacher shortage constitute 
reasonable and overdue reforms. Other changes are 
admittedly desperate — and possibly dangerous — attempts 
to meet today's needs. 

The central problem is to get more young people 
interested in college teaching. Here, college alumni and 
alumnae have an opportunity to provide a badly needed 
service to higher education and to superior young people 
themselves. The problem of teacher supply is not one 
with which the college administrator is able to cope alone. 

President J. Seelye Bixler, of Colby College, recently 
said: "Let us cultivate a teacher-centered point of view. 
There is tragedy as well as truth in the old saying that in 
Europe when you meet a teacher you tip your hat, whereas 
over here you tap your head. Our debt to our teachers is 
very great, and fortunately we are beginning to realize 
that we must make some attempt to balance the account. 
Money and prestige are among the first requirements. 

"Most important is independence. Too often we sit 
back with the comfortable feeling that our teachers have 
aU the freedom they desire. We forget that the payoff 
comes in times of stress. Are we really willing to allow 
them independence of thought when a national emergency 
is in the offing? Are we ready to defend them against all 
pressure groups and to acknowledge their right to act as 
critics of our customs, our institutions, and even our 
national pohcy? Evidence abounds that for some of our 
more vociferous compatriots this is too much. They see no 
reason why such privileges should be offered or why a 
teacher should not express his patriotism in the same out- 
worn and often irrelevant shibboleths they find so dear 
and so hard to give up. Surely our educational task has 
not been completed until we have persuaded them that a 
teacher should be a pioneer, a leader, and at times a non- 
conformist with a recognized right to dissent. As Howard 
Mumford Jones has observed, we can hardly allow our- 
selves to become a nation proud of machines that think 
and suspicious of any man who tries to." 

By lending their support to programs designed to im- 
prove the cUmate for teachers at their own colleges, alumni 
can do much to alter the conviction held by many that 
teaching is tolerable only to martyrs. 


Most teachers teach because they love their jobs. But low pay is 
forcing many to leave the profession, just when we need them most 

EVERY TUESDAY EVENING for the past three and a half 
months, the principal activity of a 34-year-old 
' associate professor of chemistry at a first-rate mid- 
western college has centered around Section 3 of the pre- 
vious Sunday's New York Times. The Times, which ar- 
rives at his office in Tuesday afternoon's mail delivery, 
customarily devotes page after page of Section 3 to large 
help-wanted ads, most of them directed at scientists and 
: engineers. The associate professor, a Ph.D., is job- 
I hunting. 

; "There's certainly no secret about it," he told a recent 
' visitor. "At least two others in the department are look- 
; ing, too. We'd all give a lot to be able to stay in teach- 
ing; that's what we're trained for, that's what we Uke. 
jBut we simply can't swing it financially." 
I "I'm up against it this spring," says the chairman of 
the physics department at an eastern college for women. 
"Within the past two weeks two of my people, one an 
associate and one an assistant professor, turned in their 
resignations, effective in June. Both are leaving the field 
—one for a job in industry, the other for government 
work. I've got strings out, aU over the country, but so 
ifar I've found no suitable replacements. We've always 
1 prided ourselves on having Ph.D.'s in these jobs, but it 
looks as if that's one resolution we'll have to break in 

"We're a long way from being able to compete with 
industry when young people put teaching and industry on 
the scales," says Vice Chancellor Vern O. Knudsen of 
UCLA. "Salary is the real rub, of course. Ph.D.'s in 
physics here in Los Angeles are getting $8-12,000 in 

industry without any experience, while about all we can 
offer them is $5,500. Things are not much better in the 
chemistry department." 

One young Ph.D. candidate sums it up thus: "We want 
to teach and we want to do basic research, but industry 
offers us twice the salary we can get as teachers. We talk 
it over with our wives, but it's pretty hard to turn down 
$10,000 to work for less than half that amount." 

"That woman you saw leaving my office: she's one of 
our most brilliant young teachers, and she was ready to 
leave us," said a women's college dean recently. "I per- 
suaded her to postpone her decision for a couple of 
months, until the results of the alumnae fund drive are in. 
We're going to use that money entirely for raising sala- 
ries, this year. If it goes over the top, we'll be able to hold 
some of our best people. If it falls short. . . I'm on the 
phone every morning, talking to the fund chairman, 
counting those dollars, and praying." 

THE DIMENSIONS of the tcacher-salary problem in the 
United States and Canada are enormous. It has 
reached a point of crisis in pubhc institutions and in 
private institutions, in richly endowed institutions as well 
as in poorer ones. It exists even in CathoUc colleges and 
universities, where, as student populations grow, more 
and more laymen must be found in order to supplement 
the limited number of clerics available for teaching posts. 
"In a generation," says Seymour E. Harris, the dis- 
tinguished Harvard economist, "the college professor has 
lost 50 per cent in economic status as compared to the 
average American. His real income has decUned sub- 

stantially, while that of the average American has risen 
by 70-80 per cent." 

Figures assembled by the American Association of 
University Professors show how seriously the college 
teacher's economic standing has deteriorated. Since 
1939, according to the AAUP's latest study (published in 
1958), the purchasing power of lawyers rose 34 per cent, 
that of dentists 54 per cent, and that of doctors 98 per 
cent. But at the five state universities surveyed by the 
AAUP, the purchasing power of teachers in all ranks rose 
only 9 per cent. And at twenty-eight privately controlled 
institutions, the purchasing power of teachers' salaries 
dropped by 8.5 per cent. While nearly everybody else in 
the country was gaining ground spectacularly, teachers 
were losing it. 

The AAUP's sample, it should be noted, is not repre- 
sentative of all colleges and universities in the United 
States and Canada. The institutions it contains are, as 
the AAUP says, "among the better colleges and universi- 
ties in the country in salary matters." For America as a 
whole, the situation is even worse. 

The National Education Association, which studied 
the salaries paid in the 1957-58 academic year by more 
than three quarters of the nation's degree-granting insti- 
tutions and by nearly two thirds of the junior colleges, 
found that half of all college and university teachers 
earned less than $6,015 per year. College instructors 
earned a median salary of only $4,562 — not much better 
than the median salary of teachers in public elementary 
schools, whose economic plight is well known. 

The imphcations of such statistics are plain. 

"Higher salaries," says Robert Lekachman, professor 
of economics at Barnard College, "would make teaching 
a reasonable alternative for the bright young lawyer, the 
bright young doctor. Any ill-paid occupation becomes 
something of a refuge for the ill-trained, the lazy, and the 
incompetent. If the scale of salaries isn't improved, the 
quality of teaching won't improve; it will worsen. Unless 
Americans are willing to pay more for higher education, 
they will have to be satisfied with an inferior product." 

Says President Margaret Clapp of Wellesley College, 
which is devoting all of its fund-raising efforts to accumu- 
lating enough money ($15 million) to strengthen faculty 
salaries: "Since the war, in an effort to keep alive the 
profession, discussion in America of teachers' salaries has 
necessarily centered on the minimums paid. But insofar 
as money is a factor in decision, wherever minimums only 
are stressed, the appeal is to the underprivileged and the 
timid; able and ambitious youths are not Ukely to hsten." 


It appears certain that if college teaching is to 
attract and hold top-grade men and women, a 
drastic step must be taken: salaries must be doubled 
within five to ten years. 

There is nothing extravagant about such a proposal; 
indeed, it may dangerously understate the need. The 
current situation is so serious that even doubling his sal- 
ary would not enable the college teacher to regain his 
former status in the American economy. 

Professor Harris of Harvard figures it this way: 
For every $100 he earned in 1930, the college faculty 
member earned only $85, in terms of 1930 dollars, in 
1957. By contrast, the average American got $175 in 
1957 for every $100 /;e earned in 1930. Even if the pro- 
fessor's salary is doubled in ten years, he will get only a 


$70 increase in buying power over 1930. By contrast, the 
average American is expected to have $127 more buying 
power at the end of the same period. 

In this respect, Professor Harris notes, doubUng faculty 
salaries is a modest program. "But in another sense," he 
says, "the proposed rise seems large indeed. None of the 
authorities . . . has told us where the money is coming 
from." It seems quite clear that a fundamental change in 
public attitudes toward faculty salaries will be necessary 
before significant progress can be made. 


INDING THE MONEY is a problem with which each 
college must wrestle today without cease. 

For some, it is a matter of convincing taxpayers 
and state legislators that appropriating money for faculty 

salaries is even more important than appropriating 
money for campus buildings. (Curiously, buildings are 
usually easier to "sell" than pay raises, despite the seem- 
ingly obvious fact that no one was ever educated by a pile 
of bricks.) 

For others, it has been a matter of fund-raising cam- 
paigns ("We are writing salary increases into our 1959-60 
budget, even though we don't have any idea where the 
money is coming from," says the president of a privately 
supported college in the Mid- Atlantic region); of finding 
additional salary money in budgets that are already 
spread thin ("We're cutting back our library's book 
budget again, to gain some funds in the salary accounts"); 
of tuition increases ("This is about the only private enter- 
prise in the country which gladly subsidizes its customers; 
maybe we're crazy"); of promoting research contracts 
("We claim to be a privately supported university, but 
what would we do without the AEC?"); and of bar- 

"The tendency to bargain, on the part of both the col- 
leges and the teachers, is a deplorable development," says 
the dean of a university in the South. But it is a grow- 
ing practice. As a result, inequities have developed: the 
teacher in a field in which people are in short supply or in 
industrial demand — or the teacher who is adept at 
"campus politics" — is Ukely to fare better than his col- 
leagues who are less favorably situated. 

"Before you check with the administration on the 
actual appointment of a specific individual," says a 
faculty man quoted in the recent and revealing book, The 
Academic Marketplace, "you can be honest and say to 
the man, 'Would you be interested in coming at this 
amount?' and he says, 'No, but I would be interested at 
this amount.' " One result of such bargaining has been 
that newly hired faculty members often make more 
money than was paid to the people they replace — a happy 
circumstance for the newcomers, but not likely to raise 
the morale of others on the faculty. 

"We have been compelled to set the beginning salary 
of such personnel as physics professors at least $1,500 
higher than salaries in such fields as history, art, physical 
education, and English," wrote the dean of faculty in a 
state college in the Rocky Mountain area, in response to a 
recent government questionncdre deaUng with salary prac- 
tices. "This began about 1954 and has worked until the 
present year, when the differential perhaps may be in- 
creased even more." 

Bargaining is not new in Academe (Thorstein Veblen 
referred to it in The Higher Learning, which he wrote in 


1918), but never has it been as widespread or as much a 
matter of desperation as today. In colleges and universi- 
ties, whose members hke to think of themselves as equally 
dedicated to all fields of human knowledge, it may prove 
to be a weakening factor of serious proportions. 

Many colleges and universities have managed to make 
modest across-the-board increases, designed to restore 
part of the faculty's lost purchasing power. In the 1957- 
58 academic year, 1,197 institutions, 84.5 per cent of 
those answering a U.S. Office of Education survey ques- 
tion on the point, gave salary increases of at least 5 per 
cent to their faculties as a whole. More than half of them 
(248 public institutions and 329 privately supported insti- 
tutions) said their action was due wholly or in part to the 
teacher shortage. 

Others have found fringe benefits to be a partial 
answer. Providing low-cost housing is a particularly suc- 
cessful way of attracting and holding faculty members; 
and since housing is a major item in a family budget, it 
is as good as or better than a salary increase. Oglethorpe 
University in Georgia, for example, a 200-student, pri- 
vate, liberal arts institution, long ago built houses on cam- 
pus land (in one of the most desirable residential areas on 
the outskirts of Atlanta), which it rents to faculty mem- 
bers at about one-third the area's going rate. (The cost 
of a three-bedroom faculty house: $50 per month.) "It's 
our major selling point," says Oglethorpe's president, 
Donald Agnew, "and we use it for all it's worth." 

Dartmouth, in addition to attacking the salary problem 
itself, has worked out a program of fringe benefits that 
includes full payment of retirement premiums (16 per 
cent of each faculty member's annual salary), group in- 
surance coverage, paying the tuition of faculty children at 
any college in the country, liberal mortgage loans, and 
contributing to the improvement of local schools which 
faculty members' children attend. 

Taking care of trouble spots while attempting to whittle 
down the salary problem as a whole, searching for new 
funds while reapportioning existing ones, the colleges and 
universities are dealing with their salary crises as best they 
can, and sometimes ingeniously. But still the gap between 
salary increases and the rising figures on the Bureau of 
Labor Statistics' consumer price index persists. 

First, stringent economies must be apphed by 
educational institutions themselves. Any waste 
that occurs, as well as most luxuries, is probably being 
subsidized by low salaries. Some "waste" may be hidden 

in educational theories so old that they are accepted 
without question; if so, the theories must be re-examined 
and, if found invalid, replaced with new ones. The idea 
of the small class, for example, has long been honored 
by administrators and faculty members alike; there is 
now reason to suspect that large classes can be equally 
effective in many courses — a suspicion which, if found 
correct, should be translated into action by those institu- 
tions which are able to do so. Tuition may have to be 
increased — a prospect at which many public-college, as 
well as many private-college, educators shudder, but 
which appears justified and fair if the increases can be 
tied to a system of loans, scholarships, and tuition re- 
bates based on a student's or his family's ability to pay. 

Second, massive aid must come from the pubUc, both 
in the form of taxes for increased salaries in state and 
municipal institutions and in the form of direct gifts to 
both public and private institutions. Anyone who gives 
money to a college or university for unrestricted use or 
earmarked for faculty salaries can be sure that he is mak- 
ing one of the best possible investments in the free world's 
future. If he is himself a college alumnus, he may con- 
sider it a repayment of a debt he incurred when his col- 
lege or university subsidized a large part of his own edu- 
cation (virtually nowhere does, or did, a student's tuition 
cover costs). If he is a corporation executive or director, 
he may consider it a legitimate cost of doing business; the 
supply of well-educated men and women (the alternative 
to which is half-educated men and women) is dependent 
upon it. If he is a parent, he may consider it a premium 
on a policy to insure high-quality education for his chil- 
dren — quality which, without such aid, he can be certain 
will deteriorate. 

Plain talk between educators and the public is a third 
necessity. The president of Barnard College, Millicent C. 
Mcintosh, says: "The 'phght' is not of the faculty, but of 
the public. The faculty will take care of themselves in the 
future either by leaving the teaching profession or by 
never entering it. Those who care for education, those 
who run institutions of learning, and those who have chil- 
dren — all these will be left holding the bag." It is hard to 
believe that if Americans — and particularly college alum- 
ni and alumnae — had been aware of the problem, they 
would have let faculty salaries fall into a sad state. Ameri- 
cans know the value of excellence in higher education too 
well to have bhthely let its basic element — excellent teach- 
ing — slip into its present peril. First we must rescue it; 
then we must make certain that it does not fall into dis- 
repair again. 







► Is your Alma Mater having difficulty finding quaUfied 
new teachers to fill vacancies and expand its faculty to 
meet climbing enrollments? 

► Has the economic status of faculty members of your 
college kept up with inflationary trends? 

► Are the physical facilities of your college, including 
laboratories and libraries, good enough to attract and 
hold qualified teachers? 

► Is your community one which respects the college 
teacher? Is the social and educational environment of 
your college's "home town" one in which a teacher would 
like to raise his family? 

► Are the restrictions on time and freedom of teachers 
at your college such as to discourage adventurous research, 
careful preparation of instruction, and the expression of 
honest conviction? 

► To meet the teacher shortage, is your college forced 
to resort to hiring practices that are unfair to segments of 
the faculty it already has? 

► Are courses of proved merit being curtailed? Are 
classes becoming larger than subject matter or safeguards 
of teacher-student relationships would warrant? 

► Are you, as an alumnus, and your college as an insti- 
tution, doing everything possible to encourage talented 
young people to pursue careers in college teaching? 

If you are dissatisfied with the answers to these questions, 
your college may need help. Contact alumni ofiicials at 
your college to learn if your concern is justified. If it is, 
register your interest in helping the college authorities 
find solutions through appropriate programs of organized 
alumni cooperation.

COLLEGE STUDENTS are sometimes thought to be 
uninformed or imconcerned about the problems of 
college administration and finance. "Tuition" and "fees" 
are familiar financial terms, but "salaries" and "endow- 
ments" are often outside their interest and understanding. 
Few college students appreciate that there is a gap Ije- 
tween the financing their fee-payments provide and the 
total cost of their education — a gap that present endow- 
ments cannot bridge, and a gap that keeps faculty salaries 

It is encouraging to find some students alive to the 
financial problems which campaigns like Bucknell's Dual 
Development Fund help to solve. The following student 
editorial in a recent issue of The Bucknellian, student 
publication of the University, is reproduced as a happy 
instance : 

Complete the Seats 

In administration of a university, the question arises: 
how does a university attract high quality professors, 
and once having them, how can it retain them? 

Highly trained people often do not go into teaching; 
they prefer to apply knowledge rather than to expound 
and share it. Today's universities, therefore, compete 
with industry for psychologists, economists, and scientists. 
Colleges battle with the federal government for language 
majors and political scientists and tussle with basic scien- 
tific research for pharmaceutical and medical experts. 

Bucknell spars no less than any other privately-en- 
dowed institutions in a match for good professors in all 
departments. However, this school, having few endowed 
chairs and lecture-ships to bring superior professors to 
the campus, is severely handicapped. 

At present, Bucknell has three chairs endowed in name 
only. Carrying the magnificent honor of a title, these 
chairs in the fields of philosophy, English literature, and 
economics receive no remimeration above and beyond a 
regular professor's salai-y. The Lindback chair, a fourth 
chair now being established in business administration, 
will amount to $10,000 per year, the first chair to be en- 
dowed by a separate fund. 

And what of endowed chairs in the sciences, mathe- 
matics, history, political science, sociology, foreign lan- 
guages, and engineering? There are none. No addi- 
tional funds exist to attract professors to endowed chairs 
and to keep good people on the campus. Bucknell is fast 
approaching the status of a front-rank university; it lacks 
only the funds. 

MAY 1 9 ."i 9 

Christian R. Lindback of Philadelphia was a Trustee 
of Bucknell 1937-50. and honorary chairman of the Board 
1947-50. A grant of $125,000 from the Lindback Foun- 
dation for the establishment of the Christian R. Lindback 
Chair in Economics and Business Administration is made 
contingent on raising of an equal amount in the Dual 
Development Fund Campaign. 



Of the Relationship between tlie Annual Alumni Fund Appeal and the Dual 
Development Fund (capital gifts) Campaign. 

■*- there was printed the resokition passed by the Board 
of Directors of the General Alumni Association spelling 
out the adjustment to be made between the Alumni Fund 
(annual giving) and the Dual Development Fund (capi- 
tal gifts). 

That some confusion remains, however, is shown by 
the questions being asked by alumni. The most frequent 
are as follows : 

1 . 0. Is an Alumni Fund appeal now being carried on ? 

A. Yes. The regular 1958-59 annual Alumni Fund 
appeal is now in progress and will continue to 
the close of the current Fund year, June 30, 1959. 

2. O. Are gifts now being sought for the Dual De- 

velopment Fund ? 

A. Yes — but from special prospects only. Some 
alumni are among these, but so also are parents, 
friends, corporations and foundations. No gen- 
eral appeal is now being made for the capital 
gifts program. 

3. 0. WTien will the general appeal be made ? 

A. In the fall of 1959 — between September 15 and 
December 31. 

4. Q. Will those who give to the capital gifts program 

be solicited for the Alumni Fund as well ? 

A. No. During the next three years the Alumni 
Fund will be merged with the Dual Development 
Fund. Beginning in the fall of 1959, each alum- 
nus will be asked to make as generous a gift as 
he can to the Dual Development Fund, payable 
over a three-year period. During the years in 
which the pledge is being paid, the giver will 
not be solicited for the Alumni Fund. 

5. Q. \M11 donors to the capital program be listed as 

contributors to the Alumni Fund? 

A. Yes. Contributors of cash or pledges to the 
capital gifts program, whenever made, will be 
credited also as Alumni Fund contributors for 
"Roll of Contributors" and "Continuity and 
Regularity" purposes in the 1959-60, 1960-61, 
and 1961-62 Fund years and for any subsequent 
year in which payments are being made on capi- 
tal gifts pledges. 

A prinicpal point is that alumni generally zvill not be 
asked to give to the Alumni Fund and to the capital gifts 
program in the same Fund year. Both the annual and 
the capital programs are essential to the progress of Buck- 
nell. Neither will be sacrificed to the other. For the 
general body of alumni the calendar is : Alumni Fund 
giving up to June 30, 1959; from that date to the end 
of 1959 captial gifts pledging on a three-year basis. 


The Board of Trustees have recently authorized and 
endorsed another way of giving to the Universit)- — 
through the Life Income Plan. It enables an alumnus 
or friend of Bucknell to make a gift to the University, 
of cash, securities, or other property, and to receive an an- 
nual income from the earnings of the gift for the rest of 
his life and, also, for the life of a loved one. This way 
of giving involves substantial tax savings, and affords a 
present philanthropy that might otherwise be impossible. 

If you would like to learn more about this method of 
giving that combines prudence with generosity, or if you 
would like to present the idea to a friend, please send for 
the new Life Income Plan pamphlet :

After these sad items it is cheering to 
recount more pleasant news of Percy An- 
drews. Percy has recently been elected 
to the Board of Directors of the First 
Seneca Bank of Clarion. This adds one 
more to his heavy business and financial 
responsibilities in the New Bethlehem 
area. He is president and treasurer of the 
C. E. Andrews Lumber Company which 
has been in operation for more than a 
century; he is president and treasurer of 
the Andrews Real Estate Company and 
the Citizens Water Company; vice presi- 
dent and director of the Meadow River 
Lumber Company of Rainelle, W. Va., 
largest hardwood lumber company in the 
United States. He is also a director of 
the Meadow River Coal and Land Com-

Clarence Edward Long, professional 
engineer, died December 12, 1958, at 
Greensburg, where he had long made his 
home and practiced his profession. While 
not originally a member of the Class of 
1908 at Bucicnell, he was graduated with 
the class and attended all our recent re- 
unions. With his wife, the former Cath- 
arine Barnhart, he was present at all the 
events of our SOth Reunion last June. 
Immediately after graduation at Bucknell, 
he served as inspector for the Board of 
Public Works in the City of Harrisburg. 
For four years, from 1910 to 1914, he was 
an instructor at Carnegie Tech. From 
1914 until his death, he was an active 
practitioner in engineering, a member of 
the American Society of Civil Engineers, 
the Society of American Military Engi- 
neers, the National Society of Profes- 
sional Engineers, and a Fellow of the 
American Association for the Advance- 
ment of Science. In 1954 he served as 
president of the Westmoreland Chapter, 
Pennsylvania Society of Professional En- 
gineers, and two years later was elected 
vice president of the state society. 
Through articles in professional journals, 
he was an enthusiastic advocate of con- 
struction of a waterway to link the New 
York State Canal System, near Rochester, 
with the Allegheny River, near Pitts- 
burgh. His home address was New 
Alexandria, R. D., Greensburg. His wife 
survives him. Burial was at his boyhood 
home at Shippensburg.

Sweet spring is here! Everywhere those 
delicate beginnings of new growth, that 
matchless blue in the late March sky and 
the caressingly warm sun call me out- 
doors. But, just a moment, this bit of news 
must be collected first and sent off to meet 
the deadline. 

In the list of classes holding reunions 
this year appears 1909 (Golden). Ah! 
That's our business now and we feel like 
adding the wood opportunity to it; for it is 

MAY 1959 

a golden opportunity indeed for those of 
us who are still among the living and are 
able to be on the Bucknell campus from 
June 5 to 7 this year. We are invited and 
urged to be there and even so early as this 
many plans are in the making for our plea- 
sure and enjoyment. So come by plane, 
train, car or boat and join in "Ray, Buck- 
nell" as we used to do so long ago. Let 
nothing deter you. 

Did you read the philosophy of Geral- 
dine Farrar in a late Newsweek? "Seventy- 
seven is almost a venerable age but I am 
glad that the wheels of my adjustment are 
well oiled. I'm always happy because I 
have great resources, and instead of time 
hanging heavy on my hands, I don't have 
enough of it." Is she writing a book? 
"My goodness, no!" she said, "I'm still liv- 
ing one." 

More acceptances to our "Golden" time 
come in daily. Frank Gibson, Box 726, 
Orange City, Fla., expects to be present. 
Gertrude Lillian Turner, "Shorty" Posten, 
Lillian Turner, Eunice Hall Johnson, R. 
H. Kauffman, Charles Hilbish, Heber 
Youngken, Albert Owens, Newton Fetter 
and Charles Fries expect to be there. 

It is reported that Kappa Sigma is 
having a gathering at Commencement 
time. If that is so, we will surely expect 
to see Matt Haggerty, Doc Leiser and 
Allen Ritter. 

In conclusion, let me say this: The 
Lord is the strength of my life.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Due to lack of 
space in previous issues of THE BUCK- 
NELL ALUMNUS, the following article 
on the Conners' (A. Cleveland and Al- 
berta Bronson) trip to the Far East has 
not been published. With the approval 
of Mrs. Houseknecht we are printing the 
account of their trip in this column. 


A friend drove us from Ardmore to 
New York on April 4. We flew to Seattle 
where we were met by cousins who enter- 
tained us over Easter. They drove us to 
Vancouver to take the 5. 5". Himalaya, an 
Australian vessel bound from there to 
Honolulu. We stopped over in San Fran- 
cisco for two days and friends took us 
sight-seeing there. The Himalaya had 
never been north before and everywhere 
we were met and sent oflf with excitement, 
bands playing, escort of helicopters over- 
head, and fire-boats with water-jet salutes. 

We stayed in Honolulu only two days at 
this time, leaving the longer visit for our 
return trip. We were met by Leon 
Rhodes '32 and had a wonderful after- 
noon, dinner and evening talking about 
Bucknell. Others who received word 
from Buck, did not have time to change 

We flew from there to Tokyo by J. A. 
L.; were met by cousins, Dr. and Mrs. 
Gordy of University of Michigan, who 
were on a two-year contract to Univer- 
sity of Waseda in Tokyo — 3700 students. 
We stayed at International House and 
were sponsored by the President of Wa- 
seda University and by Dr. and Mrs. 
Charles Fries '09 of Bucknell and Univer- 
sity of Michigan. On April 22 we had a 
hilarious Bucknell dinner at International 
House — Agnes ('19) and Charles '09 
Fries; "Bunny" (Bernice Holz '32) Good- 
rich and Dick Goodrich (summer, gradu- 
ate student '32); and ourselves '12. I had 
a cordial message also from Mary Lou 
Hind Palmore '52 from Magoya inviting 
us to visit them. 

In Japan, we visited Buddhist Temples, 
Shinto Shrines, Christian Missions and 
colleges, hotels heated by natural hot 
springs and rode on old and modern sub- 
ways. We saw and lived on the edge of 
Japanese gardens of unbelievable beauty 
and were entertained in Japanese homes. 
In one marvelous place, we were invited 
for the day — our two cousins, ourselves 
and two sophomores at International 
Christian College, friends of the older son 
of the family — one a Japanese student, 
the other, John D. Rockefeller IV. The 
aunt of our hostess had been Lady in 
Waiting to the Empress Meiji. There we 
saw chests and chests of fabulous allover 
hand-embroidered court kimonos, as well 
as ancient lacquer ware and furniture. 

After we left Japan, we returned to 
sight-seeing in Honolulu and Pearl Har- 
bor; went island-hopping; inspected vol- 
canoes, museums, factories, rehabilitation 
centers, a fern grotto, and all sorts of 
unusiial landscapes. And how can I 
describe the leis, particularly one made 
entirely of orchids? Especially impor- 
tant was the appointment we had with 
the Mayor of Honolulu, Neal Blaidsell '26. 
He is an utterly charming and disarming 
personality, friendly and gracious. He 
presented us with a bowl of polished na- 
tive wood, with an engraved silver plaque 
on its side. 

We flew back to the good old U. S. A., 
went sight-seeing in Los Angeles a few 
days, including Disneyland, and then

On September 30, 1958, Leslie W. Stout 
retired as vice president and manager of 
the Rehoboth Branch of the Farmers 
Bank of the State of Delaware. Leslie was 
first employed by the First National Bank 
of Dover, Del., after being graduated from 
the Wilmington Conference in that city 
(now known as Weslej' College). He re- 
signed this position in 1909 in order to en- 
ter Bucknell. During the summers 
throughout his college career Leslie 
worked in the Franklin National Bank in 
Philadelphia. From 1913 to 1938, when he 
was invalided for three years by a heart 
attack, Leslie was associated with Laird 
and Co., Wilmington, Del., New York 
stock exchange brokers, and the Industrial 
Trust Co., of which he was one of the 
founders. In 1941 he assumed the man- 
agement of Rehoboth Trust Co., serving 
as its secretary and treasurer and later as 


}^l^r^ ^ 


its president until 1955, at which time the 
Trust Co. was amalgamated with the 
Farmers Bank of the State of Delaware (a 
bank chartered in 1807). He served the 
latter as vice president and manager until 
his retirement. Leslie plans to be present 
for our 46th anniversary.

Jesse Riley is now assistant to the presi- 
dent of Alderson-Broaddus College, Phil- 
ippi, W. Va., with two months off in the 
winter. From Floral City, Fla., he writes 
in part: "December 29th we left the hills 
of West Virginia for the sunny South. 
When we were in Lewisburg in Septem- 
ber, I made arrangements for our class to 
have a dinner at the Lewisburger Hotel, 
Friday evening of Commencement Week. 
The proprietor told me the hotel can ac- 
commodate one such dinner only an eve- 
ning, and so that if I wanted to reserve 
the dining hall I should do so then. I told 
him to hold it for the Class of '14 . . . I'll 
see you at Bucknell in June." 

So mark your calendars for this dinner 
June 5. 

Dr. Samuel H. Markowitz had a high 
honor bestowed on him by his Alma Mater 
this year. At the special convocation exer- 
cises on January- 17, 1959, he received the 
honorary degree of Doctor of Literature, 
"for devotion and distinguished service to 
his people, for loyalty to his alma mater 
and to our common heritage." Dr. Marko- 
witz is Rabbi of Beth David Congregation 
of Philadelphia. The Class of 1914 jends 
congratulations to this member who has 
been so highly honored. 

L. F. Lyne, Jr., who now lives at 205 
Edgemont Drive, .Allenhurst. N. J., says 
he will be back in June for our 45th anni- 
versary and he hopes that Charlie Coleman 
and Puff Lindberg will be there also.

great deal. We are luckj' when we can 
catch him home long enough to attend 
our Philadelphia B. U. Alumni dinners. 
He and Mrs. Thomas have a son who is

It was interesting to me to note in the 
Class of 1947 alumni news that Earle S. 
Pedigo, Jr., has come to Marcus Hook. 
That is the same place his Dad worked 
about 40 or more years ago. He was 
with DuPont and I visited them in Clay- 
mont, Del., I think it was even before Tip 
and I were married. 

Ethel Ward may be addressed at 1018

hasn't any news now but will dig some 
up for me later. In the course of her life 
she has had some very interesting trips 

to Canada, Mexico, Europe and has visited 
most of our United States. At present 
she is doing volunteer work at one of 
their hospitals. 

I still think Charlie Sipley '22 belongs 
to us and I get a note from him every 
once in a while. Charlie saj'S his visiting 
was curtailed this year due to tutoring, but 
he did get down to North Carolina where 
he used to teach and had a grand time 
there. He says, "Brother Lew '18 and 
his wife spent three weeks in Europe last 
summer combining business and plea- 
sure." Charlie's son Wade bought a home 
just about five miles away and he has 
enjo3-ed their family ever so much. He is 
a proud grandpa of a two-month old boy 
and a granddaughter in the second grade 
who is very smart, as he says all grand- 
parents think. Charlie is substituting in 
the high school occasionally and works 
on the books of a local hardware store in 
the mornings. He likes to hear from old 
friends and ^v^ll be happj' to answer your

of this last year he has heard from Sprout,

cause the letters did not come back to

June 6 is just around the corner! From 
all reports, you can not afford to miss this 
reallv big occasion — our 30th reunion. 
Raldo Shipman of Sunbury is our social 
chairman, and is doing a real job with 
plans for an afternoon "get-to-gether" at 


the Milton Country Club. It promises to 
be better than even our 2Sth. 

Dot Lemon Bailey reports that she has 
received about 50% of the completed ques- 
tionnaires. These have been edited and 
turned over to the Alumni Office, so work 
on the reunion booklet is progressing. But 
where are the other 50%? If you have 
not already sent yours to Dottie, please 
do it now. 

William "Turk" Jones has lined up his 
area committees, and is very optimistic 
concerning the results. You will be hear- 
ing from these area chairmen — by phone, 
letter or a personal call. Be a good 
"committee" member and '29-er, and say, 
"Yes, I will be there," when they contact 

Your reporter has had a letter from 
our president, Paul E. Fink, and he re- 
ports that almost everyone has been will- 
ing to do a job to make this a real reunion. 
We are counting on YOU.

plans to come all the way from Glens Falls, 
N. Y., before the reunion in order to see 
that all plans are complete for your en-

"Thank you," to these hard-working chair- 
men by being on hand, June 6th.

I'm sure if you have been reading your

to make sure you've got the calendar 
marked and plans made; we "Reune in 
June" the 5th-7th at Bucknell. Come and 
meet old friends and see the changes on 
the campus. I've heard from many who

of antibiotics. The second is scheduled 
for Milan, Italy. On these extensive 
foreign trips Bill continues to carry the

I have recently received a letter from 
Eleanor Romberger Kramer which I 
think deserves some special recognition. 
Eleanor attended Bucknell for two years 
with the Class of '35. A short while ago 
her husband died, leaving her with five 
children, one of them a baby. Since then 
she has been attending Wilson College in 
order to complete her college work and 
enter the teaching profession. From her 
letter, her faith in God, determination to 
finish her education, and hope for the 
future shine out in every sentence. 

In order to make her college career 
possible, her two boys attend the Milton 
Hershey School and her baby spends the 
week days with her mother. It is a rough 
schedule, but Eleanor's hope is for the 
future. Certainly the prayers and hopes 
of all of us should be with her as she goes 
through this last semester. 

Jack R. Jett writes from 505 Ohio St., 
Terre Haute, Ind., that he has been prose- 
cuting attorney in Terre Haute for the 
past fourteen years and is now engaged 
in private law practice. He is married

and has four wonderful children. He 
sends his greetings to all the 3S'ers and 
I'm sure he would like to hear from his 
old Bucknell friends. 

I am now engaged in another deadline 
frenzy — that of editor of our county teach- 
er's association publication. I am also 
contemplating going to college full-time 
next school term to complete work on my 
master's degree. It will be my last chance, 
since there will be two others in college 
as undergraduates, soon. After all, we 
oldsters have to keep ahead! 

Let's get behind our Alumni Fund and 
be "tops" in our per cent of participation 
by 1960 when we have our 2Sth — as Ed 
Hartman, our class fund manager so 
succinctly puts it.

It was wonderful hearing from so many 
of you and having a dearth of class news 
to pass on. If all the items are not used 
for this issue, because of lack of space, 
they will be held in reserve for the Sep- 
tember ALUMNUS. 

At the risk of sounding boastful, I 
think we should feel very proud of our 
classmates and the worthwhile things they 
are doing. It is encouraging to note that 
so many of them are actively engaged in 
teaching, educational work, and vital civic 

Did you note in the January ALUM- 
NUS that six members of our class have 
second generation Bucknellians in the 
Class of 1962?

The Sunbury Alumni Club must appre- 
ciate Sig Stoler as much as the Philadel- 
phia Club appreciates Herb Watson. Both 
were re-elected for another term; Sig will 
continue as treasurer in Sunbury, Herb 
as president in Philadelphia. 

Care to dabble in a few statistics? A 
quick look at a "usually responsible 
source" states that we numbered 363 
souls, all told, in 1937. In the last two 
years, 36 of that number have been men- 
tioned in this column, a few of them more 
than once. Going back a couple more 
years, we can include another dozen vvho 
have sent us information. What is going 
on with the rest of the 363? The reunion 
booklet included sketches of 120 of us. 
That still leaves quite a few who are in- 
communicado. Are you one of them?

thing about it — NOW? While you have 
pen in hand, help Charlie Morris with his

According to our class president. Bob 
"Clipper" Smith, plans are pretty well 
made for a terrific reunion June 5, 6 and 
7. Those of us who returned for our 15th 
reunion remember the fun we all had 
together. This is our 20th. Be sure and 
make plans now to come to Lewisburg 
and have fun. Believe me when your 
class reporter tells you that it is wonder- 
ful just to see how old other members of 
the class have gotten while you still feel 
young and sylph-like. Many of you have 
indicated on your questionnaire that you 
plan to be on the campus this coming 
June 5, 6 and 7. Be sure to mark that 
calendar now!

Ruth came bearing news: she has been 
active in dramatics since college, has 
taught dramatics, as well. Another for- 
mer Cap and Daggerite, Rae-Louise 
Shultz (now Mrs. Rowland Porch, and

up to date on were Ginny Fisher (Mrs.

two girls; and Peg E. Davis (Mrs. Doug- 
las McPherson), who has four children. 
About the most astonishing tale of the 
evening was Ruth's account of a coterie 
of Bucknellians, all of whom were sta- 
tioned (or whose husbands were) at 
Smyrna, Tenn., during World War II: 
Joe Diblin, Fred Fahringer '42, Ralph

Just in time for this issue came a cap- 
sule history of the Wenners (Harry and 
Jeanne Rolfe) since college: "suddenly 
realized that next year we will have our 
20th reunion at Bucknell. 

"We do go back to Bucknell quite often, 
Harry more than I, for he has been back 
to recruit, or search out teachers for 
various school systems — namely. West 
Orange when he was assistant superin- 
tendent, and now Mountain Lakes, where 
he is superintendent of schools. 

"Now this spring we are going back 
for the most important interview of all — 
to get our son Rolfe into Bucknell in the 
fall of 1960! 

"We also have a son Richard, 14 years 
old, who has Bucknell as his goal. 

"After leaving Bucknell Harrj' contin- 
ued his education at N. Y. U. and got his 
M.A. there. Then on to Columbia for 
the ultimate, his doctorate, which he re- 
ceived in 1956. 

"The years have been busj' ones since 
we left school and our experiences have 
been varied and fulfilling. However, we 
still have the warmth and aft'ection for 
Bucknell and all that it stands for . . . 
We will certainly see you at reunion in

Dick Squires and Nick Danforth '50 

A chance introduction to a new 
sport some nine years ago excited 
an interest and talent which have 
stroked William "Nick" Danforth 
'50, to coveted national ranking in 
the rugged game of Squash. 

Tagged No. 2 amateur doubles 
team in the nation, the powerful, 
fore-handing Danforth and his part- 
ner. Dr. Paul Teele, hotly-pressed 
national champions Diehl Mateer 
and John Hentz before succumbing 
last year in Baltimore. Mateer ac- 
quired the U. S. singles title in Pitts- 
burgh in January. 

Back in 1950 after graduating 
from Bucknell, "Nick" had never 
swung a squash racket. One day 
in Pittsburgh, Danforth ran into 
Drew Mathieson '50, a campus class- 
mate, and his father, A. R. Mathie- 
son '20, a University trustee. The 
Mathiesons were heading for the 
University Club and a game of 
squash. "Nick", curious and chal- 
lenged, agreed to join them and 
learn the game from the senior Ma- 

Later, regular rounds at the Pitts- 
burgh Athletic Club, University 
Club and other area courts equipped 
him eventually to enter top-flight 
tournaments. Bill teamed with part- 
ners to win the Pittsburgh City 
Doubles crown in both 1956 and 
1957. He and Dick Squires won 
the Western Open tourney in their 
home city last year. 

Danforth and his national doub- 
les runner-up partner. Dr. Steele, 
crashed New York's crack play by 
copping both the Gold Racquets In- 
vitation and the Rockaway Hunting 
Club titles. This fast-rising duo 
finished second in the Greenwich, 
Conn., Invitation against top-draw- 
er players early in January. 

"Nick", as he was dubbed at 
Bucknell. married the former Leslie 
Jane McCord, Chicago girl, last No- 
vember and when not cavorting on 
the squash courts or shooting 70-ish 
golf at Fox Chapel Country Club 
is associated with Moore. Leonard 
and Lynch, a Pittsburgh investment 

Bill Danforth is a squash player 
worth watching in the next few 
years. He possesses what is called 
in the Metropolitan (N. Y.) Squash 
yearbook as "the hardest forehand in 
the game" and a cat-like agility that 
may yet take him that one giant 
step higher — partner on the No. 1 
doubles team in the nation.

(continued from March issue) 

When Leo was working on the Early 
Modern English Dictionary at the U. of 
Mich., an esteemed colleague was Har- 
old B. Allen, who has since joined the 
faculty of the U. of Minn. Two years 
ago the Aliens spent a rewarding year 
in Egypt where Harold taught at Cairo 
University. Their Allen Annual gives 
timely information on their continuing as- 
sociation with Egyptian friends and re- 
flects the influence such exchange visits 
have at this critical point of our history. 
So it's a temptation to quote all of their 
letter, but we'll choose just one item for 
you who are interested in seeing Buck- 
nellians go places. And has this one gone 

Here is part of Dr. Allen's entry for 
November: "HBA privileged at NCTE 
to confer merit award upon C. C. Fries 
with whom he took his Ph.D." 

This, of course, is our own Charles 
Carpenter Fries '09, who founded the En- 
glish Language Institute at the U. of 
Michigan, (from which stemmed later, 
the Bucknell chapter) and who has served 
in various countries to improve the teach- 
ing of English against the background 
of the native tongue of each country. 

He and his wife, Agnes Carswell '19, 
who has contributed her own talent and 
charm in aiding Charles in this worldwide 
service, could give us volumes on their ex- 
periences in England, France, Puerto 
Rico, Japan, to mention only a few of the 
countries where they have been repre- 
senting us. But that last one reminds 
me of the fun it was to get an envelope 
postmarked Japan and to find in it a 
card depicting the International House in 
Tokyo, bearing the following signatures 
of Bucknellians all there at the same mo- 
ment: Bunny Holtz Goodrich '32, Rich- 
ard L. Goodrich, summer of '31, Agnes 
Fries '19, Charles C. Fries '09, A. C. (Pat- 
ty) Conner '12, Alberta Bronson Conner 
'12. And the envelope was addressed by 
my college pal and lifelong friend, Al- 
berta Bronson, her signature reminding 
me of our college days when we shared 
the love of language study and traipsed 
up and down hill together with Greek 
texts under arm. 

Hopping the ocean back to our own 
continent, we alight in Mexico into which 
charming country vacationers on our west 
coast are flowing as naturally and nu- 
merously as on the east coast they flow 
down into Florida. On July 28th of last 
summer, several of our friends, unaware 
of one another, were spending time in 
Mexico. It was a Denison chum, Ger- 
trude Phillips Talbot, who wrote: "Our 
highlights this year begin in July when 
Virginia and I were in the Continental 
Hilton in Mexico City at the time of the 
big earthquake. Our doors jammed and 
we could not leave the room. The walls 
had three big cracks from ceiling to floor, 
the bathroom was a shambles . . . But 
we went from east coast to west, seeing 
many beautiful places and absorbing his- 
tory and local customs. We even went 
with friends speed-boating in the Pacific." 
An odd coincidence here. Leo and I 
had been in Guadalajara and on our re- 
turn home, stopped in Mexico City just in 

MAY 1959 

time for the quake. In our own Christ- 
mas letter, this entry: "Next morning we 
fly to Mexico City. As before we stay 
at Hotel Luma. The third morning, an 
earthquake. Since Luma is only four 
stories high, we feel only the rock and roll 
of it. So warmly have we come to regard 
the efforts of Mexico to improve itself 
in every way, that a first reaction is hope 
that this may not affect the nation ad- 

Other friends, Roy and Bee Anderson 
of North Carolina State College in Ral- 
eigh, were caught in Acapulco. Their 
experience, too, was exciting, but since 
Bucknellians don't know them, we'll let 
them serve as an introduction to a family 
that Bucknell knows very well indeed. 
For the Andersons, like Ken and Caryl 
Slifer '26, are internationally minded, their 
home having served as doorway and ref- 
uge for scores of foreign-born families, 
freshly arrived in this country. Even then 
as Roy and Bee were touring Mexico, 
Faiz, a junior at the U. of North Carolina 
and T. Matsumoto, reasearch chemist 
from Japan, were staying in the Anderson 
home in Raleigh. 

You will know why we have made this 
comparison if you have read in the 
American Magazine of the many and va- 
ried experiences of the Slifers in caring 
for foreign-born people. This year, with 
their Christmas message, the Slifers en- 
closed a photograph of their own fine-looking 
family, together with two of their pres- 
ent guests, Tamara from Poland, and El- 
vira from El Salvador. Their letter tells 
us, "Tamara, like her older sister, Zofia, 
before her, is living with us through high 
school. She's now a tall 16 and a soph- 
omore. Last summer she was one of the 
waitresses for the Adirondack Log House 

and made a hit with her general good hu- 
mor and all-round ability. Seven years 
in America have made her forget most of 
her Polish, but she can still wish you a 
'Boze Narodzenia.' Elvira joined us the 
very day this picture was taken. She has 
had a new hairdo since, but she's so tiny 
people guess she's 12 instead of 20. Her 
ambition was to come to the States, learn 
English, study to be a teacher or a mis- 
sionary, and go back to help her own peo- 
ple. She's picking up English fast, but 
she's feel more comfortable wishing you 
'Feliz Navidad' in her soft Spanish." 

A few years ago I gave English instruc- 
tion to the children of an eminent Chinese 
geographer, then a visiting professor at 
Colgate. It was a real privilege to help 
these brilliant young people and we have 
watched with great interest as they have 
gone about preparing to make the best 
contribution possible to their adopted 
homeland. Mrs. Chang wrote, "Cedric is 
still in Cincinnati continuing his course 
in Architecture. Elfreda graduated from 
the U. of Michigan in June with a B.S. in 
Chemical Engineering and is now working 
for her Master's. Guendolynne has en- 
tered the U. of Michigan Engineering

THE BUCKNELL ALUMNUS is published in January, March, May, September, and 
November by BUCKNELL UNIVERSITY. Entered as second-class matter December 
30, 1930 at the post office at Lewisburg, Pa., under the act of August 24, 1912. 


As fall descends on the Bucknell campus ihoiights Uim to football and loy l Bisoti rooters. This year put yourself in the picture and join in the fun. 


New Activities plus Traditional Ahimni Events promise to make 
Homecoming unusually interesting and enjoyable 

PLAN NOW to enjoy a full day of yXutnmn fun on Satur- 
day, October 17, 1959, when Bucknell alumni celebrate 
Homecoming. This day promises to be one you won't 
forget and can't ailord to miss. Whatever your interests, 
the program of events will provide more activities than 
you can possibly attend. 

The fun and festivities begin at 8:00 A. M. when all 
alumni meet at the Bison Club Breakfast to get the 
latest dope on the team and enjoy good fellowship, 
story-swapping and the back-slapping of former class- 
mates and friends. 

Following breakfast some alumni will want to view 
the traditional Homecoming Parade of floats prepared 
by the fraternities and sororities, while others may be 
interested in attending two outstanding Alumni Semi- 
nars. For those of you who want a continuing contact 
with the "academic world," the Alumni Seminars, new 
additions to the Homecoming program, will surely fill 
the bill. 

In the first seminar. Professor James A. Gathings, 
Chairman of the Department of Political Science, will 
speak on the subject, "The Cold War: How Cold 
Now?" In analyzing the present international situa- 
tion, Professor "Jim" plans to point out the conse- 
quences of the American foreign policy. 

In the second seminar. Professor Rudolph Plaft'ner 
of the Department of Biology will talk about "Higher 
Education Tomorrow : Quality or Price Only ?" He 
will discuss some of the underlying problems of higher 
education and the measures we are prepared to take to 
cope with these problems successfully. His illustra- 


tions will be drawn primarily from the area of science 
and science teaching. 

For an ever increasing number of Bucknellians 
Homecoming means more than just fun and frolic. 
The General Alumni Association officers and commit- 
tee members will meet Frida}^ evening to expand activi- 
ties of the alumni program. There will also be meet- 
ings of Class Presidents, Reunion Chairmen, and com- 
mittee members of classes reuning in June 1960 (all 
those whose class numerals end in "5" and "0"). Meet- 
ings of the Committee on Alumni Awards and the 
Committee on Nominations for Alumni Trustee candi- 
dates are other business meetings scheduled. 

At noon, the All-Alumni Luncheon, where every- 
body gets to see everybody else before the game, gives 
you a chance to see the Bucknell Band and cheerlead- 
ers. Music, majorettes and cheers will put you in first- 
class shape for the game. No speeches at this lunch- 
eon — just lunch and fun. 

And following lunch at 1 ;30 P. M. (DST) will be 
the outstanding highlight of the day — the football 
game with the Scarlet of Rutgers. The Bisons are a 
new team going all out to win this one for the alumni. 
Last year Billy Austin and company from Rutgers put 
on cjuite a Homecoming show at a jam packed stadium 
in New Brunswick. This }ear, head coach Bob Odell 
plans to reverse the tables, but is counting heavily 
on you to help root the team on to victory. 

After the game, everybody will return to Davis 
Gym for more meeting and greeting of old friends at 
the Bison Round-up and Reception. Here's your chance

?)V Cyrus H. Karraker, Associate Professor of History * 

The story of BuckneUians who brought Christian -^ 

■>^: Culture to many lands 

Go YE INTO ALL the worlcl and preach the Gospel to 
every creature." This command of Christ to his 


disciples many former Bucknell students have obeyed with 
courage and devotion. Their service to the Master and to 
mankind forms a glorious chapter in the annals of Bucknell. 

The history of missionaries who have gone out from 
Bucknell comprises an entire century, from 1858 to 
1958. Little is known about the nineteenth century, 
for the records are sparse, 
however, these few reveal 
the origins of an amazing 
friendship that grew up be- 
tween Bucknell and Burma. 
This story begins with the 
arrival of Shaw Loo on the 
campus in 1858 — Bucknell's 
first foreign missionary. 
Shaw Loo graduated in 1864. 
and after obtaining a medical 
degree, returned to Burma to 
devote the remainder of his 
life to the service of his peo- 
ple. He held the official posi- 
tion of physician to the King. 

A century later, in 1958, his daughter, Miss Lisbeth 
Shaw Loo, flew to Bucknell from Rangoon for the 
celebration of the tenth anniversary of Burma's inde- 
pendence, and the 100th anniversary of the admission 
of the first foreign student to Bucknell, at which time 
she presented the University with an oil painting of 
her father. On this occasion. Ambassador U Win 
presented Bucknell with a beautiful silver bowl as a 
gift from the President of the Union of Burma — a sym- 
bol of enduring friendship. 

To this heart-warming relationship of a college 
with a nation several other factors have contributed 
through the years. There was first of all the striking 
personality of Mrs. Harriet Mason Stephens who be- 
came a pioneer missionary to Burma. She was born in 
Burma of missionary parents, married in America, and 
graduated from the Lewisburg Female Institute in 
1858 at the age of 16. With her husband she returned 
to Burma in 1865 and devoted many years of her life 
to the education of Burmese women and girls. Mrs. 
Stephens also translated the Bible into Burmese. It 
was a great occasion at Bucknell when she returned 
to the campus for the Centennial Commencement in 
1946, at the age of 104, to receive a special award 

A second channel of friendship has been Judson ■ 
College at Rangoon where Bucknell missionary educa- 
tors have taught Burmese students, while a third is the 
Burma-Bucknell Weekend which is held annually un- 
der the guidance of Mr. Forrest Brown and the Chris- 
tian Association, and draws Burmese to the campus 
from many quarters. 

Besides Dr. Shaw Loo and Mrs. Stephens, the 
careers of other Bucknell students who went into mis- 
sions these early years mostlj' elude us. At the turn 
of the century we come upon the robust personality 
of Gilbert Ler'oy Hall of the Class of 1899. In a letter 
written in 1950 to a friend in Montandon he recalls that 
after graduating "he turned to say good-bye to Dr. 
Harris (there was a man!), and as I left, his face 
lighted up with this : 'Mr. Hall, I trust the world will 
be some better because 3'ou have been here.' From ■ 
there, with these words in my memory I splashed into 
the world." 

G. L. Hall later graduated from Rochester Theol- 
ogical Seminary and held four pastorates, but he had 
found the church was not his domain and answered the 
call of "Boat Missions" in Puget Sound. He thus de- 
scribes his ministry : "There was plenty of inland wa- 
ter navigation, rivers, sloughs and inlets along which 
were small communities, saw mills and logging camps 
mostly untouched with the Gospel. I raised $5,000 to 
build a cruiser with cabin space to hold small services. 
But could I navigate a boat? \Ve\\ I had to. I did. 
I was in boat-work nearly ten ^-ears — it was grand ! I 
could preach far more sermons and reach far more 
people." Eventually came word from his Board in 
New York that "Boat Missions" had to be terminated.. 
It was for him a severe blow — this was needy work — i 
but nothing could daunt the spirit of Captain Hall. 
He now instituted his own missions and spent his re- 
maining years travelling about in a car filled with 
Bibles which he enthusiastically distributed all over 
the Pacific Coast. 

The great period of missions came after 1890, and 
its most fertile field was China. China was awakeningi 
to \\'estern ideas after many centuries of comparative 
isolation, while in this era American thought was 
characterized by evangelism. 

Frank G. Rawlinson, who was born in England, 
is a iamous name in Chinese missions. Following his 
graduation in 1899, he studied at Columbia and at 
Rochester Theological Seminarv, and then went tc; 


China in 1902 under the Board for Foreign Missions. 
Two of his schoolmates also served in China : Charles 
W. Harvey '00, who was active in the International 
V. M. C. A., and Dr. Charles S. Keen '00, who set up 
the first school for the training of missionaries in the 
Chinese language. Rawlinson provided leadership of 
many sorts during his long missionary career which 
extended from 1902 until 1937, when he was killed in 
the Japanese bombing of the International Settlement. 

Truly his ministry was complete. Rawlinson preached 
the Gospel ; he wrote religious books and articles inter- 
preting Christianity to the Chinese and Chinese culture 
to the missionaries, he was editor of the Chinese Recorder, 
a magazine devoted to the interpretation of the Christian 
movement in China, and he devoted much time to social 
and industrial problems in and about Shanghai. His views 
on missions were progressive for he advocated a coopera- 
tive Christian fellowship in missions. The Christian 
Century compared his scholarship to that of Robert 
Morrison and "other giants of the old days." 

Rawlinson, Harvey and Keen were quickly fol- 
lowed to China by three students of the Class of 1901 
— Dr. Edgar T. Shields, Dr. Charles Byron Lesher and 
his wife, Dr. Mabel Grier Lesher. Let us consider 
first the career of Dr. Shields who was a native son 
of Lewisburg and educated in its schools before at- 
tending Bucknell. After taking a medical degree he 
located at the Baptist Mission in Chengtu on the 
Tibetan border of China. Here for more than six 
years he waged a heroic struggle against the opium 
traffic and smallpox, and for his services was gratefully 
honored by the Chinese government. 

On his retirement from missions, Dr. Shields taught 
for a time at the University of Pennsylvania, after 
which he became resident physician at Devitt's Camp 
for tubercular patients, located north of Lewisburg. 
Thereafter, he prosecuted a relentless war against this 

Charles Byron Lesher and his wife, Mabel Grier 
Lesher, after graduating took their medical training at 
the University of Pennsylvania, as did Edgar T. Shields, 
and sailed for Swatow, northeast of Hong Kong in 
1910. Here and at Shanghai they were stationed as 
medical missionaries for more than seventeen years, 
until their final return to America and private practice 
in Camden. During this long period in China husband 
and wife combatted courageously the three scourges 
of Asiatic cholera, smallpox, and bubonic plague. The 
depth of their devotion to the people may be judged 
from the fact that Dr. C. B. Lesher alone vaccinated 
500 Chinese against the plague in one day. 

Following her retirement. Dr. Mabel Lesher was 
soon to become known as the great pioneer in the 
field of social hygiene. While serving as a medical 
missionary at Swatow, she had introduced a program 
of education in social hygiene at a girls' school, even 
learning the colloquial language for this purpose. From 
this initial success she went on to organize other school 
programs and lecture on the subject. In America, 
education in social hygiene became her chief interest, 
as she taught the subject in public schools and colleges, 
and crusaded for its introduction throughout the edu- 
cational system. At length the American Social Hy- 
giene Association appointed her its educational con- 
sultant, and in 1947 awarded her an Honorary Life 
Membership "in recognition of her valuable and varied 
services in that field both in China and America." 

Dr. Mabel Lesher has expressed her conviction in 
these terms : "Our primary concern is the preparation 
of children and youth for finer family living, for whole- 
some boy-girl relations, and for later marriage, home- 
making and parenthood." Now a resident of Lewis- 


burg, she devotes much of her time to the w'elfare of 
children and youth of her county. 

While the Leshers served at Swatow, their intimate 
friends from college days, the Hylberts, were engaged 
in missionary work at Shanghai. Dr. Lewis C. Hyl- 
bert graduated in 1905 and Mrs. Hylbert, who was 
Margaret Runyan, in 1902. 

Dr. Hylbert was a missionary for 38 years, from 
1910 until 1948, which was a period in China of much 
storm and stress. At one time the Japanese punished 
him severely for concealing from them, as they be- 
lieved, large sums of money at his disposal. During 
the first fifteen years of his ministry his work was 
evangelistic among the twelve churches of the Ningpo 
district. In the succeeding years he was busily occu- 
pied with raising money to construct the Ningpo 
Hospital and schools and churches, and also with the 
administration of missions. His most famous achieve- 
ment, undoubtedly, was in famine relief which saved 
the lives of thousands of Chinese. For this great hu- 
manitarian service the Government expressed to him 
its deep gratitude, and honored him with the degree 
of Chia Ho Hsuni Chang (Good Harvester). 

Dr. Hylbert was a missionary of much understand- 
ing and vision, one who was always close to the hearts 
of the Chinese people. Like Dr. Rawlinson, he dis- 
cerns the need of missionaries and mission boards co- 
operating "in concerted action for a common Christian 
program." "All Christians," he vigorously affirms, 
"should pool their resources of men and money to win 
the world to Christ." 

Another Bucknell missionary of distinction in China 
was Charles Lucas Bromley of the Class of 1908, who 
served in China from 1911 as teacher of the New Testa- 
ment at Shanghai Baptist College and also in mission 
work at Ningpo. On the subject of the values of mis- 
sionary life, he says. "Your spiritual insight is deep- 
ened ; your world outlook is enlarged ; your sense of 
worthfulness is increased. It was a marvelous experi- 

A classmate of Dr. Bromley though serving in 
Burma was Dr. E. Carroll Condict '08, whose associa- 
tion with Bucknell has always been close. He was 
awarded the D.D. degree by his Alma Mater in 1935 
and in succeeding years his three sons all graduated 
—Edward in 1936, Clinton in 1937, and Chubb in 1939. 
He and his wife arrived in Burma in 1911, and were 
stationed at Thayetmyo in South Burma under the 
auspices of the American Baptist Foreign Missionary 

Dr. Condict's career is truly a remarkable one, 
covering a period of 42 years, as missionary teacher, 
administrator, intelligence worker during \\"orld War 
II, and as scholar in Burma. His permanent gift to 
the Burmese was his translation of the Bible in the 
Southern Chin language. Everyone he inspired by 
his unconquerable spirit. When sought by the invad- 
ing Japanese, dead or alix'e, his answer was to retire 
to the Chin Hills where he continued to preach and 

One of his chief interests was Judson College, which 
in the school year 1934-35 appears to ha\-e become pre- 
dominantly Bucknellian for the catalogue of that year 
includes the names of E. Carroll Condict '08 as Secre- 
tary of the Board of Trustees, Samuel H. Richard '23 
as Principal, Flelen Hunt, daughter of President Hunt, 
as Dean of Women, w-hile the lecturer in chemistry was 
Marian Esther Shivers of the Class of 1914. Marian 
Shivers won distinction in Burma as a missionary 
educator and also as Director of the Church \\'orld

Attendance records shattered 

at Class Reunions during 

Alumni Weekend, June 1959 

The Carnegie Building, formerly the old library, was the scene of many 
happy reunions as alumni registered for the Alumni Week End. 

BEAUTIFUL WEATHER, a colorful program, and over 1 100 
alumni, relatives and friends combined to make alum- 
ni weekend the best ever. There was "something doing" 
every moment for the crowds of alumni \\ho thronged the 
campus the weekend of June 5-6-7. 

Even before the registration desks opened in the Car- 
negie Building alumni could be seen touring the campus 
looking for old landmarks and discovering new ones. And 
slowly but surely famihar faces began to appear and the 
day was filled with the renewal of old friendships and 
surprises. The evening was taken up with good old 
fashion bull-sessions, refreshing dips in the Freas-Rooke 
Swimming Pool, and coffee calls at the Bison. 


Festivities got underway at 8 :00 A. M. on Alumni Day 
at the Bison Club breakfast with a record-breaking 140 
alumni and guests gathered to eat a hearty meal and hear 
reports on the University's athletic program. President 
of the Bison Club J. P. Mathias '35 served as master of 
ceremonies during this kick-oft" event of the day. During 
the btisiness session the following men were elected officers 

of the club for the ensuing year ; Jay P. Mathias '35, presi- 
dent ; Weber L. Gerhart, Jr. '19, Ralph Sherbo, and Dr. 
Kurt Manrodt, Jr. '39, vice presidents ; John H. Shott '22, 
secretary; and Warren S. Reed '20, treasurer. 

By 10 :30 A. M. the reunion program was in high gear 
as 13 classes met in both the new air conditioned Coleman 
Hall and the Vaughan Literature Building to conduct 
class business meetings. During this period the eleven 
dift'erent reunion books, prepared especially for the occa- 
sion by class members, were distributed to the respective 
classes. Class regalia was donned, and the reunion pic- 
tures taken. The reunion chairman and class presidents 
are still scratching their heads trying to figure out how all 
the business was accomplished. 


Following the class meetings reunioners of all classes 
marched in the traditional reunion parade to Davis Gym- 
nasium where they enjoyed a delicious hmcheon and heard 
the annual address of Dr. Merle M. Odgers, President of 
the University. Quoting from Dr. Odger's "State of the 
Universitv" address he said : 

Mrs. Ruth Sprajue Downs '98, recipient of the Alumru Award for Recognized 

Contributions and Service to Fellowmcn is congratulated by Dr. Charles Fox, 

Jr. '31, President of the General Alumni Association. 

William J. Irvin '22, recipient of the Alumni Award for Distinguished Service 
to Bucknell University tries out the alumni chair at the .AU'.Alumni Luncheon. 


Delegates to the Alumni Assembly study ballots from which three alumni were elected members of the Board of Directors of The General Alumni Association. 
The meeting, held in the new air-eonditioned University Theatre, made the task an enjoyable one on a very warm day. 

"Bucknell University has received a grant of 
$109,518 from the Olin Foundation Inc. for an addi- 
tion to the F. W. Olin Science Building. The grant 
will provide for additional class rooms and offices for 
the mathematics departments. Construction of the 
addition is scheduled to begin in August and he 
completed in early winter." 

"Students returning last fall found the campus 
vastly improved by the extensive road-ljuilding and 
landscaping program carried on during the summer. 
This included construction of a new entrance to the 
campus to open to vehicular traffic the area in the 
vicinity of Coleman Hall and the new academic 

"The remodeling of West College, one of the 
University's oldest residence halls for men, was start- 
ed two months ago. This building with an occupancy 
up to this time of 140, will be ready for occupancy in 
September by 210 freshman men." 

"This spring three more faculty members were 
made members of the Twenty-Five Year Club ; Dr. 
Harold E. Cook of the music department and Dr.

Cyrus H. Karraker and Dr. J. Orin Oliphant of the 
department of history. Dr. Roy C. Tasker of the 
department of biology also received his pin before 
leaving for his sabbatical year in Pakistan." 

"Our last large gathering of alumni of all classes 
was Alumni Homecoming last November. At that 
time 1 announced that Bucknell was launching a 
capital gifts campaign with an objective of $1,850,000. 
Most of you, I am sure, have read the progress re- 
ports on our Dual Development Fund published in 
some questions as to the "why" of the word "Dual," 
and I will say again that the word is used to empha- 
size the fact that the drive has two principal objec- 
tives : r)ne to increase our endowment in the interest 
of maintaining a superior faculty, and second to do 
some necessary building, both new construction and 
the modernization of old buildings such as East 
College and West College."

This sum has been obtained largely through the gifts 
of the Trustees, or from gifts obtained by them. This 
puts us dose to our Initial Gifts objective of $600,000, 
the obtaining of which constitutes the first major step 
in our campaign." 

"We now face a phase of the campaign in which 
we go out in a more general way to our alumni, par- 
ents and friends. A lot of people, including myself, 
are going to work very hard during 1959 and 1960. 
Personally, I think this pitching in together on a large 
common cause is a good thing. I look upon this cam- 
paign as an opportunity to recruit additional leader- 
ship particularly among alumni in the younger classes. 
The great need in the next few months is for workers : 
hundreds of workers in all parts of the country. The 
enlistment procedure is now under way, and I am 
confident that we shall enroll the necessary number 
to make a strong organization." 


Another highlight of the luncheon program was the 
presentation of Alumni Awards for 1959. 

Introduced by John H. Shott '22, Alumni Secretary, 
this year's award winners received their certificates from 
Dr. Charles F. Fox, Jr. "31, President, of the General 
Alumni Association. 

William J. Irvin "22, of Trenton, N. J., was the recipi- 
ent of the Alumni Award for Outstanding Service, Un- 
selfish Interest and Demonstrated Loyalty to the Univer- 
sity and to the General Alumni Association. Upon the 
presentation of the certificate and Bucknell chair "Bill" 
was cited for his service to his Alma Mater in every phase 
of alumni activity which has included service as a member 
of the board of directors of The General Alumni Associa- 
tion, president of the Bucknell Alumni Club of Trenton, 
president of the Bison Club, class officer, member of the 
Athletic Advisory Committee, and loyal worker in behalf | 
of the Bucknell Alumni Fund. 

Reunioners at the Class of 1919 reunion included: (front row, left 
to right) Cliff Holleran, Voris Hall, Ray (Ring) Kline, Franklin 
fones, Agnes Carswell Fries, Irene Yarnell Davis, Retty Spyker 
Owen, Dorothy Lawrence Wood, Golda Clark Laning, Alice Kcleh- 
ner; (back row, left to right) Weber Gerhart and Mrs. Gerhart, 
Harry Angel, Clyde (Mike) Withington, Prof. George Kunkel and 
Mrs. Kunkel, Howard Harer, Kenneth Oakley, Mrs. Andrews and 
Harry Andrews. 

The presentation of the Bucknell University Akimni 
Award for Recognized Contriljutions and Service to Fel- 
low Men for 1959 to Mrs. Ruth Sprague Downs '98 
brought a standing ovation from the 1100 alumni and 
guests assembled in the gymnasium. Mrs. Downs known 
internationally for her braille transcriptions in the field of 
mathematics, has also done outstanding work in a great 
variety of subjects including literature, law, philosophy, 
science and at least eight foreign languages. For her work 
in transcribing the gospels for use in Ethiopia, she was 
cited by the grateful government of that country. 

Dr. Paul A. Bowers '33 was presented with the Alumni 
Award in Recognition of Meritorious Achievement in 
One's Chosen Field of Endeavor for 1959. Dr. Bower, a 
distinguished doctor of medicine in the field of maternal 
welfare, has been termed, "a pioneer in natural childbirth 
and other phases of physiologic obstetrics" by his asso- 
ciaties in the medical field. 

Late afternoon brought the classes together again as 
all classes held social events both on and oft' campus. In 
the early evening fraternity and sorority symposium head- 
ed the program and finally the very full clay of activities 
came to a close with both the annual Alumni Jamboree in 
Davis Gymnasium and a performance by Cap and Dagger 
of J. M. Barrie's comedy "The Admirable Crichton" in 
the new University Theatre in Coleman Hall. 


For trustees and many alumni the Alumni Weekend 
'i meant more than just frivolity as committee meetings were 
held about the campus — sometimes into the wee hours of 
the morning. The following paragraphs give a report of 
the election of trustees, officers of the General Alumni 
Association and new members of the Board of Directors 
of the General Alumni Association as well as appoint- 
ments to committees. 

Wilmer D. Greulich '34, Wynnewood, was nominated 
for election as an Alumni Trustee on the Board of Trustees 
of Bucknell University for a term of five years. Other 
new trustees elected were Dr. Edward W. Pangburn '15, 
Lewisburg physician and a former member of the Board ; 
Charles J. Kushell, Jr. '27, Chicago, vice president of the 
Finance Department of Montgomery Ward ; and Herbert 
A. May, Pittsburgh, formerly senior vice president of the 
Westinghouse Air Brake Company. Since retiring from 
his Westinghouse post, he has been principally concerned 
with the program of the Defense Orientation and Confer- 
ence Association, Washington, as secretary and treasurer. 

Four trustees whose terms expired were re-elected. 
They are: A. Guy Freas of Huntington Mills; Dr. Daniel 
A. Poling, New York City ; Dr. Herbert L. Spencer, New 
York City; and Paul L. Troast, Clifton, N. J.

In almost every game last fall OdellV charges were 
in the thick of the fight for two or three quarters until 
the frontline unit wearied un-

position. At any rate the new 
"belly" series attack, employed 
so successfully under Odell at 
Wisconsin, provided Bison fans 
with a new, interesting and 
highly imaginative brand of 

The 'new look' has under- 
gone a )'ear of implementation 
and promises to be even more 
exciting this fall. The 1959 edi- 
tion of the Herd will display a 
multiple offense employing, in 
addition to the "belly" or 
"drive" series, the "T", spread, 
man in motion and split-T. 
With fifteen game-tested letter- 
men on hand and as many as 
five outstanding sophomores 
ready to move into starting 
roles, the Bisons will be strong- 
er in experience and depth than they were a year ago. 


Spearheading the aerial and running attack will be 
junior cpiarterback Paul Terhes. A strong armed pass- 
er and a fine runner, Terhes took over for the injured 
Denny Cox last year and improved with every game, 
winding up as the first team Middle Atlantic Confer- 
ence signal caller. A 5-11, 185 pounder from Milmont 
Park, Terhes capped his outstanding performances by 
winning the MAC passing and total offense crowns. 
( )dell values "Turk's" services so highly that he has 
said that he wouldn't trade him for any back in the 

Quarterback and end are the deepest positions on

back up Terhes. Junior Fred Elliott of Philadelphia

' Night Game 


Philadelphia shared the freshman duties last fall and 
showed good potential this spring. 

Although three lettermen halfbacks are on hand, 
two promising sophs could bust into the starting line- 
up. Ashton Ditka, a 5-11, 180 pound speedster from 
Aliquippa, showed considerable promise in spring prac- 
tice and could prove to be a real outside threat. The 
other halfback spot might go 
to Bill Urch, a 6-1, 198 pounder 
from Ligonier, Pa. A solid per- 
former for the frosh last season, 
Urch showed this spring that 
he will be a tough man to move 
out. Far from being out of the 
picture are senior Ray Hettche 
of Baltimore, fifth leading 
ground gainer last year, juniors 
Marty Pope of Sunbury and 
Mickey Melberger of West 
Pittston and soph Ray Cos- 

The fullback post is in the 
capable hands of junior George 
Moncilovich, a tough, aggres- 
sive runner and the number 
two rusher last fall. George 
supplemented the Bison aerial 
attack in '58 with 142 yards in 
56 tries and is being looked to 
for even better performances 
come September. Also on hand are senior letterman 
Clint Gilkey of Allison Park and soph Tom Noteware 
of ^^'ellsboro. 


Taking a look at the Bison forward wall we find 
nine lettermen on hand headed by Captain Larry i\Ia- 
thias. A 5-10, 180 pounder from Reading, Mathias is 
a top-flight performer on both offense and defense and 
can go equally well at center or guard. Moving in as 
a starter last year he did an outstanding job backing 
up the line and showed to be durable and a real hus- 
tler. He may move over to guard if sophomore Tom 
Alexander, the top performer up front for the frosh 
last year, recovers sufficiently from a leg injury to take 
over the center duties. 

Elsewhere in the interior of the line seniors John 
Bergfeld of Havertown and Bob Patzwall of Balti- 
more, should be fixtures at guard and tackle respec- 
tively. Dick Bourdeau, a 6-i, 215 pounder from Mil- 
ford, Conn., was the most improved player on the 
squad this spring and will give letter winner Charlie 
Negron a run for his nionev at the other tackle spot. 
Soph Kirk Foulke, 6-2, 205, from Philadelphia, will 
also see plenty of action. Unless Mathias moves over 
from his center post, sophomore Don Chaump of Pitts- 
ton will probably join Bergfeld at the guards. Sophs 
Walt Duffy, John Flyzik and Dennis Morgan and se- 
nior letterman Tony Rinaldo will give him ])Ienty of 

No less than four senior lettermen are available at 
the ends. Jim Brady, of Ambler, a starter for the past 
two seasons and All-Conference honorable mention 
last year, will probably go at one flank, with Phoenix- 
ville's Jack Eachus at the other wing. Eachus paced 
the conference last season with 16 receptions good 
for 272 yards and one touchdown. Dennis Cox of Bal- 


timore, who has played at every position except tackle 
and center, is the top defensive lineman on the squad 
and along with senior Doug Forsyth, junior ]\Iike 
Goldstein and soph Ron ]\Iaslanik will give added 
strength to the flanker corps. 


Defensively, the Herd will be stronger than last 
3^ear and boasts outstanding performers in Brady, Cox, 
Mathias and Terhes. The tough early season schedule 
will mean that the sophomores will make some mis- 
takes along the way, but the progress made in spring 
practice was most heartening. 

With Brady, Eachus and Cox on hand the opposi- 
tion will find rough going on the outside. Alathias will 
back up a line that is tough but lacks experience and 
Terhes has shown to be as reliable on defense in his 
safety position as he is in moving the ball down the 
field. If the sophs come along as expected the Bisons 
should keep their opponents well under the 2,913 
yards they gave up last year. 

1958 was a disappointing year record-wise but the 
interesting and exciting brand of football introduced 
by Bob Odell gave Bison fans some real thrills. 1959 
promises even more variety and although the Herd 

faces a rugged nine-game slate the added experiencej 
and depth should bring the team further along on thej 
winning road. ' 


The Bisons kick oft' the lid on the 1959 season against 
Gettysburg in the Rotary Bowl game at Hershey on 
September 26. This will be the sixth time the two rivals 
have met in the annual classic with the Bullets holding ai 
3-2 edge. The Herd dropped a 6-0 decision in the mud 
last year and will be out for revenge. 

Harvard, with an all-veteran backfield and rated a 
chance at the Ivy League first division, will entertain 
Bucknell on October 3. The Cantabs, under John Yovics-j 
in, are pointing toward a big year but will have to come 
up with some improvements in the line. In their onl\, 
previous engagement the two teams battled to a 26-2(;' 
draw in 1951. ; 

Buft'alo will bring its swiftly rising football fortune; 
to Lewisburg on October 10 and should provide plenty o1 
excitement. The Bulls finished with an 8-1 mark last; 
season including a 38-0 decision over the Herd and wor; 
the Lambert Cup, symbolizing Eastern small college 
supremacy. The Bulls haven't lost much and Dick Often- 
hamer has 19 lettermen including fleet halfback Willie

At its last board meeting, the Samuel H. Kress 
Foundation modified the terms of its one to four matching 
grant by permitting Bucknell University to use gifts 
to the endowment fund from other foundations as 
matching funds. 

The Kresge Foundation of Detroit, Mich., has 
awarded a grant of $25,000 to Bucknell University 
toward the cost of constructing the new administra- 
tion center, which is one of the projects in the Dual 
Development Campaign. Estimated costs of the new 
administration center, Avhich will form one wing of 
the present Vaughan Literature Building is $600,000. 
The Kresge grant was made on condition that the 
Dual Development Campaign raise the additional 
$575,000 needed for the building by December 1. 1961. 
In the past, the Kresge Foundation has made a similar 
grant toward building construction on the Bucknell 

PARENTS will help too 

The bucknell parents, an organization made up of 
the parents of Bucknell students, was established at 
a meeting of the parent group on the campus on ^lay 
9, 1959. The new merged organization is a consoli- 
dation of the former Fathers' and Mothers' Associa- 
tions. Both of the former organizations had estab- 
lished a splendid histor}^ of helpful activities on and 
olif the Bucknell campus that have made significant 
contributions in parent-university relations. 

After consideration of the goals of the Dual Devel- 
opment Fund, the Board of Directors of The Bucknell 
Parents adopted as their loyalty fund project for the 
next three years, beginning July 1, 1959, the raising 
of $75,000 to be appHed to the endowment goal of the 
Dual Development Fund. 

It was further agreed that parents' gifts to the 
Dual Development Fund Campaign will be solicited 
in the name of The Bucknell Parents, but that the 
actual work of solicitation will be carried on under 
the direction of the Dual Development staflr. Itwas 
further agreed that the officers and the board of the 
Parents Association will give as much assistance as 
it can in the solicitation program for the Dual Devel- 
opment Campaign.

ALUMNI Time Table Changed 

As THE RESULT of a recommendation of the Board ol 
Directors of the General Alumni Association, a slight 
modification of the personal solicitation phase of the 
Dual Development Campaign has been made. The 
change calls for the personal solicitation of pledges 
and gifts from the general alumni body beginning in 
the first months of 1960, instead of during the last 
months of 1959. A few alumni will be solicited during 
the special gifts phase of the program in the last three 
months of 1959 and a few areas close to the University 
campus will conduct general alumni solicitation in 
late 1959 to establish a home-base participation in 
1959 as a stimulus for other areas in early 1960. 

Throughout the planning stages of the Dual De- 
velopment Campaign, the directors of the campaign 
have sought and received the advice of the Board of 
Directors of the General Alumni Association. During 
the past year, a large part of the three Board of Direc- 
tor meetings have been devoted to a consideration of 
co-ordinating the Bucknell Alumni Fund with the 
Dual Development Campaign. And in addition, a 
"workshop session on the subject was held on the 
campus in October 1958. As the result of these de- 
liberations, the Dual Development Campaign staff 
wisely refrained from conducting personal solicitation 
among alumni for the Dual Development project dur- 
ing the 1958-59 fund year, leaving the field open for 
the unrestricted Alumni Fund campaigning of the 
Alumni Fund Committee, the class fund managers, 
and the personal solicitation chairmen and agents 
working on behalf of the Bucknell Alumni Fund. How- 
ever, it was felt unwise to conduct personal solicitatior 
among alumni for the Dual Development Campaign dur-j 
ing the latter half of 1959 because many alumni contribu-j 
tors might not realize that the Fund fiscal }'ear closed 
June 30 and might misunderstand if asked to make twc 
contributions during the calendar year 1959. Thus, or 
two occasions the Dual Development Campaign staff has 
stepped aside with its plans in consideration of the neec 
for emphasis on Alumni Fund giving during the year 1959 

ALUMNI FUND PLANS for 1959-1960 


developed, it became clear that a continuation of the 
Alumni Fund on a normal basis during the Dual De 
velopment Campaign would result in double solicita- 
tion of alumni. It was considered that such a course 
would be unwise, if not impossible, from the view-i

at Dual Decelopment Campaign meetings throughout the V. S. A. Several 
select frames from the new movie are shown on the film clip. 



point of the Dual Development efforts. Since the 
Dual Development Campaign had twice stepped aside 
so as not to interfere with the Alumni Fund of 1958- 
59 (once to postpone alumni solicitation until after 
June 30, 1959, and again, to postpone alumni solici- 
tation until early 1960), it was felt that the larger 
interest of Bucknell University can best be served by 
a successful completion of the Dual Development 
Campaign. Thus, for the first time since its inception 
twelve years ago, the Alumni Annual-Giving Fund 
will not conduct a formal program during the 1959- 
1960 fiscal year. However, alumni who make gifts of 
cash or pledges to the Dual Development Campaign 
will also be listed as contributors to the Alumni Fund 
for "Roll of Contributors" and "Continuity and Reg- 
ularity" purposes. 

During the merging of the Alumni Fund and the 
Dual Development Campaign, our splendid organi- 
zation of class fund managers, assistant class fund 
managers and personal solicitation chairmen and 
agents will be held intact and during the personal 
solicitation phase of the Dual Development Campaign 
early in 1%0 these loyal alumni workers will be pro- 
viding important assistance in every possible way to 
the Dual Development effort. 

Throughout the active personal soliciting phase of 
the Dual Development program, class fund managers 
and area agents and their assistants will be hard at 
work trying to establish new records of giving, not 
only in class eff'orts, but in area efforts as well. 
Throughout the campaign, careful records will be 
kept of the record of class giving — although no in- 
dividual gift amounts will be revealed — as well as 
careful reporting of area giving. This arrangement 
permits the Alumni Fund to preserve its traditional 
record for helping provide the resources needed by 
Bucknell yet allows the Dual Development Campaign 
the greatest possible opportunity to achieve its fullest 
potential. And furthermore, this setup will avoid the 
unpleasantness and confusion of double solicitation. 


There are several good reasons why personal solici- 
tation must be depended upon to secure complete vic- 
tory in the Dual Development Campaign. 

In the first place, there has been such a multiplicity 
of mail appeals for a wide variety of health and wel- 
fare causes — many of them worthy, some of them not 
so worthy — that the prospective donor has long since 
become weary of trying to read all of the sundry and 
varied appeals. 

In the usual order. Dr. E. W. Pangbum '15, Trustee, and Dr. Dayton L.

In the second place, the alumni donor will be 
asked to give or pledge over a three-year period for 
a permanent improvement of Bucknell's resources,

Since this is the first comprehensive capital fund 
campaign in Bucknell's history since the Heating 
Plant Program of 1948, we must and will carry it on 
in the best Bucknell tradition. In the Heating Plant 
Campaign of 1948, it was possible to conduct per- 
sonal solicitation in about 40 alumni areas. However, 
since then the distribution of BuckneUians has broad- 
ened considerably and we find substantial concentra- 
tions of the Bucknell family not only in the North- 
east but also in the middle and far West and in the 
South. In fact, due to the energetic eff'orts of our 
alumni club officer staffs, all but about 1500 of our 
over 17,000 BuckneUians are now under the care of 
a Bucknell area club organization. By and large, 
BuckneUians throughout the nation have come to rec- 

Dr. Merle M. Odgers, President, and William S. Liming '33, discuss cam- 
paign activities at the Long Island meeting, with Mrs. Odgers as an inter- 
ested listener. Mr. Liming is chairman for Special Gifts on Long Island. 


ognize a feeling of pride and gratitude toward Alma 
Mater whether they hold a bachelor's degree or a 
master's degree or even if they did not remain on the 
Bucknell campus for a full four-year program. Eve- 
rj'one should be given the opportunitj- to hear of Buck- 
nell's progress and future needs and this can be ac- 
complished only through personal visits. It is recog- 
nized that not all donors will be able to contribute 
as generouslv as they would like but successful com- 
pletion of the campaign will recjuire many, man}- 
"basic loyalty'' gifts. This fact was amply demonstrated 
in the Heating Campaign in 1948. 

During this fall we face the task of recruiting 
chairmen, captains and agents to serve in many local 
areas, with the actual visitations to be conducted in 
the early months of 1960. To visit the whole family 
of Bucknellians will require the help of almost 3000 
workers Avho are willing to devote several evenings 
during early 1960 to the task. With this kind of 
cooperation complete victory is assured. 

SPECIAL GIFTS Solicitation Continues 

Special gifts solicitation continued over the summer 
in a number of areas under the general chairmanship 
of R. Henry Coleman '29, Trustee, of Bridgeport, 
Conn. Solicitation of a special group of alumni, par- 
ents and corporations was continued in Wilmington, 
Del., under the leadership of Dr. Burt C. Pratt '33 and 
Dr. Vernal R. Hardy, a parent. On Long Island the 
special gifts program progresses under the leadership 
of William S. Liming '33, chairman, a group of 7 team 
captains with about 30 agents. In ^Manhattan, Ches- 
ter R. Leaber '19 has just conducted the kickoff meet- 
ing. In Philadelphia the special gifts program will be 
conducted under the leadership of Romain C. Hass- 
rick, Esq. '06. The parents' program in the Phila- 
delphia area will be guided b}' Wallace W. Orr, father 
of senior student Cynthia J. Orr. Chairmanships have 
been established (as reported in our jMaj- 1959 issue) 
with programs to be conducted during early fall in 
Levvisburg, IMilton, Sunbury, Pittsburgh, Scranton, 
Wilkes-Barre, and ^^'illiamsport. Still to be organized 
are the areas of Northern New Jersey, Southern New 
Jersey, Trenton, \A'estchester County, Brooklyn, Mon- 
mouth-Ocean Counties (N. J.) and Danville. 

BUSINESS NEIGHBORS Attend Recognition 

Dinner on Campus 

Eighty business and industrial leaders from Lewis- 
burg and nearby communities were guests at a Recog- 
nition Dinner held at Bucknell on June 10 to express 
the University's appreciation for their cooperation in 
various University-sponsored projects. Showing of 
the new film, "Presenting Bucknell," prepared in con- 
nection with the Dual Development Campaign, fea- 
tured the dinner program. 

Speaking at the dinner, Dr. i\Ierle M. Odgers, presi- 
dent of Bucknell University, spoke in part as follows : 

"One of my predecessors, David Jayne Hill, Avho 
was president from 1879-1888, later our American am- 
bassador to Germany, as a student at Bucknell gave 
to a question in a little autograph album, '\Miat is 
your chief occupation?' this answer: 'making friends!' 
The future Bucknell president was reflecting one of 
the most characteristic aspects about Bucknell — its 
friendliness. Quite naturally, therefore, I welcome 
you on behalf of Bucknell as Friends of the University. 
_ "Friendship, whether between individuals or in- 
stitutions, is implemented by a common language. 
Bucknell neighbors enjoy a relationship that, I believe, 

is closer and more friendlj- than most 'town-gown' 
or 'university-area' relationships because we do speak 
the same language of freedom of enterprise ; of con- 
stant progress along sound, mildly conservative lines; 
of dedication to the cultural, moral, economic values 
that give strength to our American way of life. 

"Woodrow Wilson once said, 'The final synthesis 
of learning is in philosophy. You shall most clearly 
judge the spirit of a university if you judge it b\- the 
philosophy it teaches.' I am sure that the basic val- 
ues and patterns in the business and community-life 
philosophy of our area quite naturalh- have molded 
and have been affected by the general spirit of the 

"That's why we are interested in each other's 
progress. The University is strengthened whenever 
businesses and industries through united action achieve 
some economic goal for our area. 

"Conversely, the whole area benefits economically 
as Bucknell makes progress — whenever our budget 
goes up, which is lately an annual climb : whenever a 
new building rises, which has happened frequently 
in the last few years ; whenever events of importance 
are held on campus which attracts large numbers of 

"Nor is our common language an economic mono- 
tone, and our inter-related progress is not limited 
to the material level. When a distinguished lecture 
series in science is set up with the cooperation of a 
neighboring industry — when Ave cooperate in an an- 
nual Science Fair — when a local business provides a 
scholarship, we demonstrate that we are partners in 
education, and that education in these days of national 
crisis is everjbody's business. We have common con- 
cerns in a high level of culture for our area, in varied 
and interesting forms of recreation, and in programs 
that nourish the mind and spirit : and Bucknell is glad 
to serve these needs not only of its 2,200 students, but 
of the people of its area as well." 

LIFE INCOME PLAN Arouses Interest 

The first announcement of the new life income 
plan which appeared in our May 1959 issue of THE 
BUCKNELL ALUMNUS has been well received by 
many alumni who are personally interested in its pro- 
visions or who have friends to whom the program is 
of interest. Several alumni have already adopted the 
program. If j^ou would like to learn more about this 
method of giving that combines prudence with gen- 
erosity, please use the coupon below to send for the 
new life income plan brochure. 

About mid-September the pamphlet will be mailed 
to all alumni in the Class of 1925 and all earlier years 
back to the Class of 1874.

Citv and State 



Grass Roots Democracy at Work in Your 
General Alumni Association 

Constitution and By-Laws of the 
General Alumni Association, you 
have the privilege — and responsibil- 
ity — of suggesting the names of 
Bucknellians to be considered by 
nominating committees as candi- 
dates for a number of University 
and Alumni posts. 

Furthermore, Bucknellians follow 
the democratic process of not only 
nominating but of electing their rep- 
resentatives by an election process 
that provides several candidates 
from which the choice of a winner 
can be made by the Alumni voters 

These broad democratic princi- 
ples are not followed in all alumni 
associations. On many campuses 
the alumni governing board them- 
selves select the candidates for alum- 
ni posts. And in many instances, 
only one candidate is selected for 
each office to be filled. Bucknellians 
have always felt that such nomina- 
tion and election procedures do not 
provide adequately for the practice 
of democratic principles no matter 
how conscientious alumni governing 
boards and committees might be. Of 
course, just as in community, state 
and federal nominations and elec- 
tions, the whole process is weakened 
unless broad participation by the 
voter is secured. 

Therefore, this is your invitation 
to suggest the names of Bucknell- 
ians to be considered as candidates 
for a number of University and 
.\lutnni offices. The form (provid- 
ed at Right) will make it easy for 
you to exercise your privileges and 
responsibilities as a member of the 
Bucknell Alumni family. 


TTach year one alumni trustee is 
nominated for consideration for 
membership on the Board of Trus- 
tees by vote of Alumni from a slate 
iif three candidates selected by the 
.\lumni Committee on Nomination 
III Trustee. In our large alumni 
body, many likely ])ossibilities might 
he over-looked unless we have your 
sutjuestion at hand. Your suggested 
candidate need not be a member of 
your class nor must he reside in 
your community, but he must have 
attended Bucknell University and 
should be able to give consideration 
of the broad problems of University 


policy and should be willing and 
able to attend two board meetings 
plus several committee meetings 
each year. 


The committee on Alumni Awards 
will meet on Saturday, October 17, 
to select recipients for alumni awards 
in three categories : (a) for merito- 
rious achievement in the field or pro- 
fession in which the candidate is en- 
gaged, (b) for recognized contribu- 
tions and service to fellowmen 
through such media as religion, 
charity, art, science or public wel- 
fare, and (c) for outstanding ser- 
vice, unselfish interest, and demon- 
strated loyalty to the University and 
to the Association. The committee 
will appreciate your suggestions of 
candidates in these three categories. 


The by-laws of The General Alum- 
ni Association provide for an elec- 
tion of three members to the gov- 
erning Board of Directors each year, 
and you are invited to suggest the 
names of Alumni to be considered 

as alumni board of director nomi- 


In the past, a few Alumni have 
misinterpreted this call for candi- 
dates and have felt that multi-rec- 
ommendations are necessary for fa- 
vorable committee action. Such is 
not the case ; a candidate with one 
recommendation receives the same 
committee consideration as a can- 
didate with a hundred recommenda- 
tions. It would be well to keep in 
mind that under our by-laws, nomi- 
nating committees are required to 
select the candidate it considers 
"best suited and qualified," rather 
than on the basis of the number of 
recommendations. Selection of can- 
didates should never be made as a 
result of a popularity contest. 

Remember — committees meet Oc- 
tober 17, and in the case of alumni 
trustee candidates, cannot consider 
persons who have not previously ac- 
cepted the invitation to be placed 
in nomination. As this clearance re- 
quires time, your suggestions should 
be made now. 

Suggestions of Persons to Be Considered for 


(Must Be Submitted by September 15, 1959, or Before) 

I suggest for committee consideration the following Bucknellians:

(Continued from Fage 5) 

Dr. Condict's exploits in tooth-pulling should not 
be overlooked. Although he was not a professional 
dentist, the realization that thousands of Burmese suf- 
fered from bad teeth made this his special concern. 
Consequently, wherever he travelled in Burma he dis- 
tributed handbills announcing that he would pull 
teeth "without pain and without payin' " until the 
total number which were "outened" rose to the stupen- 
dous figure of 16,650. One might say this was a case 
of the Gospel following the forceps as Dr. Condict's tooth- 
pulling extended to at least twenty dilierent races. 

Another principal area of missionary interest to 
Bucknellians besides China and Burma has ever been 
Korea, and in the Korean held shines brightly the 
name of iMaude Pauline Keister '26 ( Mrs. A. Kris Jen- 
sen). \Mth her husband she served under the iMetho- 
dist Board of Foreign Missions at Chemulpo and was 
a trustee of various schools including Yonsei Univer- 
sity and the Methodist Theological Seminary in Seoul. 
She also taught in the Seminary though inuch of her 
work was administrative at the policv level. 

During the Korean ^^'ar Mrs. Jensen and her two 
children were evacuated to Japan ; meanwhile, her hus- 
band was taken prisoner and endured for more than 
two years the tortures of Xorth Korean prison camps. 
She holds the distinction of being the first woman to 
be ordained into the Methodist Church. 

Her comments on foreign missions seem to us 
words of wisdom born of her rich experience. She 
writes : "For those who are free to go to a foreign field, 
and who have the necessary training and other quali- 
fications, missionary work oflfers the most desirable 
life service for anyone dedicated to a church calling. A 
missionar}- has no doubt of the need of his work — and 
he enjoys friendships without anj- thought of racial 
lines, along with the closest possible fellowship with 
other missionaries. I can say this all without hesita- 
tion in spite of having been evacuated twice in emer- 
gency war situations, involving complete loss of all 
possessions both times — and in spite of the Korean 
War that resulted in the capture and horrible torture 
of death marches and prison camps for mv husband 
for a three-year period in which I did not know if he 
were alive or dead." 

More than a half-century has passed since the Lesh- 
ers, the Hylberts, and Frank Rawlinson went out as 
missionaries to China, and now this once fertile field 
of missions is closed. But other peoples of Asia and 

Africa call for Christ's ministr\-. The Bucknellians 
who have entered foreign missions since the war, we i 
have not mentioned. After all, their work is continuing. ' 

Missions have changed since 1900. Todav, three 
difficult problems, among many, confront missionaries 
in foreign fields. They are Western materialism, the 
intellectualising of Christianity, and the growth of na- 
tionalism and anti-white prejudice. Times have 
changed, requiring a different training and new tech- 
niques, but the goal still remains the same, which is to 
bring a personal God and a living faith into the lives 
of people who have need of Him.

(luarterback whiz Eugene Guerrie is a future star. 

Rutgers, minus All-zAmerican Bill Austin, will provide 

the Homecoming opposition on October 17. Despite the 

one-sided score last year the Bisons gained over 300 3'ards 

against the Scarlet and the real difference was Austin. 

The Knights have 26 lettermen back headed by end Bob 

Simnis, but lost some experienced linemen and their first 

I two tailbacks. The Scarlet are not as strong as last year 

and John Stiegman's single wing pitted against the Bison 

multiple offense should provide some interesting moments. 

Bucknell begins a three game road trip at Lafayette 

; (in (Jctober 24. The Leopards took a 34-6 decision last 

year and should be tough again with all but three starters 

j back. Pacing the split-T attack is All-Conference fullback 

[1 Don Nikles and he will get plenty of help from boys up 

[ from last year's undefeated freshman team. 

5 Lehigh, Bucknell's opponent on October 31 is looking 

ii for improvement on last year's mediocre 3-3-3 mark, but 

. has only 1 1 lettermen back. The Engineers lack depth in 

;■■ the line, but have experienced backfield performers. Ouar- 

; terback Bob Scheu, tackle Walt Meincke and end Jim 

I' Needham are the top players in Bill Leckonby's split-T 

K attack. 

I The final road trip of the season will be to Hamilton, 
N. Y. to meet Colgate on November 7. The Red Raiders, 
pushed around between the 20-yard lines last year, sent 
fullback Bernie Dailey through for one big gallop and took 
home a 7-0 victory. The Bisons should carry this one right 
down to the wire with the Maroon coming home after a 
tiring five-game road jaunt. Alva Kelley, moving over 

I from Brown, will be in his first year at the helm of the 
Raiders and brings a new system with him. Pacing the 
attack are Dailey, quarterback Bob Paske and halfbacks 
Herm Branch and Jacque MacKinnon. 

Temple, a 44-6 Herd victim in '58, was winless last 
year and can't look for too much improvement with only 

S F. V r E M I! E I! 10 5 9 

five regulars liack. The first unit is adequate but there 
is a lack of experienced depth. The Bisons will Ije out to 
take the "Old Shoe Trophy" for the sixth consecutive time 
in this Parents Weekend game. 

A potentially strong Delaware eleven will come to 
town for the final game of the season. Last year the Blue 
Hens took a 28-8 decision and Dave Nelson has 20 of 28 
lettermen back on his wing-T outfit. Nelson has a tough 
and experienced line to go with speed in the backfield and 
should come up with a team ready to challenge for the 
MAC title. 


Twelve returning lettermen and a fine crop of .sopho- 
mores head the list of candidates ready to greet soccer 
coach Hank Peters this fall. Captain Steve Flamhaft of 
Brooklyn will lead a squad of over 35 in early practice 
sessions prior to the beginning of school. 

Last year the Bison hooters posted a 3-7 mark, but 
dropped several close decisions and carried powerful Penn 
State and Navy right down to the wire. Flamhaft, a 
center halfback and left fullback Roger ]\Iackey were 
chosen on the All-Middle Atlantic Conference second team 
and Flamhaft was further honored by being a member of 
the North All Stars in the Orange Bowl game. He later 
went through trials for the U. S. Pan American Games 

Soccer is definitely on the upswing at Bucknell and 
the increased attendance at last fall's games and the deci- 
sion to come back early for practice indicate a real interest 
in the sport. Peters will be out to boost the Bisons above 
the .500 mark for the first time in his tenure, but faces a 
tough ten-game schedule including games with Penn State, 
Temple, Navy and Drexel. The Herd will be strong in 
the backfield but need a goalie to replace Bill Sharp. 



Don't forget that football games away from 
the campus give you an opportunity to see the 
Thundering" Herd in action in your home area. 
Here's how you can meet the gang as you follow 
the Bisons on the road:

Eldred, Pa. 

Mrs. Henry T. Pope (Sara Catherine 
Johnson, Institute '92) has lived a long 
career of service to her fellow men. Born 
in Jerseytown in 1871, she began teaching 
school in Lumberton, N. C, in 1893, in a 
private school because at that date there 
were no public schools in the state. Mar- 
ried to Dr. H. T. Pope in 1896, she often 
traveled with her husband and nursed and 
administered to indigent patients. Al- 
though she had a family of five children 
to care for, she later taught in the public 
schools and served as a substitute teacher 
after she was past li years of age. Re- 
cently she was honored by the member- 
ship of the First Baptist Church of Lum- 
berton, N. C, upon the 62nd anniversary 
of membership in the congregation. In a 
recent letter she wrote, "In my three 
years at Bucknell, under the guidance of 
the best of teachers, I have been able to 
be of service to others. I will not be 
able to ever see Bucknell again, but my 
heart is filled with gratitude when I think 
of what I received there." 

Mrs. Pope, whatever you may have 
taken from Bucknell, you have used most 
wisely for the betterment of mankind. We 
salute you.

A letter from Mary I. Bower r02 says 
that her sister, Catherine '01, is not well 
and Mary is caring for her in their home. 
Mary still enjoys driving through the 
Pennsylvania mountains from which she 
receives a spiritual satisfaction as well as 
a peaceful relaxation. She is in contact 
almost daily with Mrs. Roy Bostwick 
( Marie Leiser I'99) whom she finds a de- 
lightful friend.

On a beautiful Florida morning (Flori- 
da does have weather sometimes equal 
to central Pennsylvania) our daughter 
Margie '39 and her good husband John 
Weihing drove Vera '11 and me over to 
Floral City to see Bill Hinman and his 

Bill gave up his dental profession in 
Hillside, N. J., thirteen years ago to trek 
to Ponce de Leon land, where he set up 
as country squire on a beautiful spot in 
Floral City. We were welcomed by a 
vociferous turkey gobbler, far more hos- 
pitable than a big drake, whom Mrs. Hin- 
man had to fend of? with a rake as we 
walked about the estate. 

We saw the orange grove, which had 
sulifered under the killing cold a year ago, 
but is coming back fast. We saw the 
peach tree, which Bill has to preserve from 
the squirrels with his trusty rifle. We saw 
many treasures in the big house — both 
Bill and the Missus are collectors. Bill is 
particularly proud of the certificate of 
award given him by the New Jersey State 
Dental Association for his service as presi- 
dent during World War II. 

As the brilliant Florida birds paused to 
dip in the bird bath near the house, we 
sat in tlie "breezeway" and had a good 
visit. It was most gratifying to see a 
fellow Old Monrovian and college room- 
mate so happy and prosperous.

The happiness and joy of the 1909 class 
of Bucknell University at its SOth reunion 
there is now an affair of the past but, ah, 
the memories of it will linger and thrill 
those of us who were fortunate enough to 
be present. Never again at my age had I 
expected to enjoy myself so freely and 
refreshingly. Everything was done for our 
pleasure in that almost perfect situation. 

Here and now we want to extend our 
grateful and hearty thanks to the univer- 
sity as a whole; to Dr. and Mrs. Odgers; 
to John Shott; his assistant, Bruce Rossi- 
ter; to our host and hostess. Dr. and Mrs. 
James Gathings; to Mr. and Mrs. Guy 
Payne and to Dr. and Mrs. William Leis- 
er, III. We also noted and are thankful 
in particular for the pleasant aid of the 
office staff, custodians, waitresses, and all 
others who helped us so efficiently. 

On Friday evening at the Lhiiversity 
Cafeteria we gathered about 55 strong to 
enjoy a delicious dinner with our class- 
mate Guy Payne and his charming wife 
as host and hostess. We all deeply appre- 
ciate that gracious gesture of yours — Guy 
and Alice. Later that same evening class- 
mates William and Martha Leiser wel- 
comed us to their home. There good fel- 

lowship and friendliness reigned and the 
hours passed much too swiftly. Super re- 
freshments were served by vivacious 
Martha and her helpers. At a late hour a 
memorable evening had to come to a re- ; 
luctant end. 

On Saturday morning after the general | 
alumni meeting, our class held its business I 
meeting in \'aughan Literature Building. 
After the introduction of our host, the! 
following officers were elected: President,! 
Myrtle Walkinshaw Shupe; Vice Presi-j 
dent, Heber Youngken; Secretary, Mary: 
Meyer Abbott; Treasurer, Dr. William 
Leiser, III; Class Fund Manager, Dr.' 
Newton C. Fetter; and Class Reporter,!

A good time was enjoyed by all at

the sentiments of those who attended the' 
Alumni supper in Swartz Hall Friday eve- 
ning and the All-Alumni Luncheon on 

Met Ruth Thomas Sleighter '31, Mif- 
flinliurg and her sister from Arizona, Sara 
Bernhart Derr '21, and Dr. Eugene Bertin 
'17 at the reporters' supper. After the 
meeting I hacl a most pleasant surprise, 
when Rev. Eric Oesterle '16 came over 
and introduced himself. He's the husband' 
of Helen Ott '14. I just about lost my 
eyesight looking for her on Saturday, but 
knowing how small she is, I can see why 
I missed her. ' 

Alberta, Patty, Pop and I ate together 
at the All-Alunini Luncheon. Pearl Reair 
Williams and Frank '17 passed us up for 
a free meal with the '09ers. Eva Himmel-
