While the rest of the world fidgeted uncomfort- 
ably with thoughts of Korea . . . and laughed at the 
business-like humor of "Dragon-Net," Butler stu- 
dents worked themselves into the annual frenzied 
revelry called homecoming. Homecoming . . . 
parades and football, trophies and singing, bonfires 
and speeches, greased pole and tug of war ... a 
week end of alums, dancing, carousing ... a week 
end of everything but sleep. 

The decoration of house and float, though sched- 
uled nearly a year ahead, was completed a few 
seconds before judging . . and most of the work 
was done, as always, the night before. The actual 
work on homecoming finery took but a few short 
hours ... the rest of the time was spent in spying 
on the other organizations, helping out with the 
work of the pin-girl's sorority, relaxing with a coke, 
or finding tools. The headache began on the Mon- 
day following when the clean-up committee took 

Indiana weather threatened to double-cross the 
whole program. The rain-maker's timing was per- 
fect ... no water for two months, but a deluge 
was scheduled for October 25 ... to make the sit- 
uation more muddled, the state fire marshall and 
Governor Craig proclaimed an emergency and the 
torch-light parade and bonfire were cancelled. 

But we won the game . . . our alums came home 
... we had our dance . . . Homecoming, that spirit 
of gaiety, welcome and good times was not altered 
by the draught, Korea, "Dragon-Net," and/or Gov- 
ernor Craig. 

Queen (jpaula 

Work-wise homecoming was the busiest of all 
Butler red-letter week ends. We scraped together 
all the wood, cardboard, napkins, and cheese- 
cloth we could find . . . splashed a little paint on 
it— provided the paint was brightly colored . . . 
and then entered the whole mess in the parade 
(usually before the paint was dry). 

Then, just after the last float had cleared the 
shadow of the monument circle we dragged 
everything back to the campus and began to 
wind up the house decorations . . . the house 
decorations consisted of the same material but 
the finished product was shaped a little different- 
ly .. . all this was done before noon the day of 
the ball game. 

Wc; then received (or didn't receive) our tro- 
phy at the homecoming game. If we didn't win 
we wondered why ... if we did win we won- 
dered why we ever worried about the competi- 
tion . . . we all wondered if the same thing 
(paint, two-by-fours, etc.) couldn't be done 
easier next year. 

Phi Delta Theta scored a double win in the 
trophy column . . . they captured both the house 
and float decorations. Kappa Kappa Gamma and 
Pi Beta Phi split the honors in the women's di- 
vision . . . the Kappas scored on their house, the 
Pi Phis on their float. 

Homecoming, 1953 edition, really stumped 
the campus brain trust . . . we played the In- 
diana State Sycamores for the second homecom- 
ing game in a row . . . ideas for decorations 
were almost played out by '53, but the decora- 
tions were declared to be above average. 

"Sycamores Are For The Birds" . . . Phi Delts 
meant what they said on their Schurdell-com- 
manded, trophy-winning float . . . and the Bull- 
dogs proved that the "Timber Is Never Too Tall 
for Tony" as they predicted on their house dec- 
orations. More predictions proved true as the 
"Sycamores Leaves Fallen" Kappa house and 
"We Aim to Win" Pi Phi float told students and

If one-third of our life was spent in bed . . . 
another third was spent in the Atherton Center 
and campus club . . . we didn't dance . . . we 
didn't shout . . . we didn't even talk too loud 
while there . . . we just sat around, drank coffee, 
played bridge, and smoked (when we had a 
quarter for cigarettes). 

The C-club in '54 became mechanized . . . we 
had machines for peanuts, chilled fruit, music, 
cigarettes, cokes, candy, and even newspapers 
. . . we also had some new signs which reminded 
campus club lovers to "keep their sanctuary 

We won't forget the Atherton Center ... it 
was there that we grabbed that quick coffee, 
campaigned for election, moaned over the grade 
on the last test (and the next one) . . . and, in 
general, spent much of our leisure time. 

Here, too, we had our organization meetings, 
bought our toothpaste, bartered for books . . . 
we listened to Coach Hinkle at the basketball 
and football banquets . . . we got our hair cut 
. . . once we even took a tape recording from 
the faculty lounge which sold like the proverbial 
hot cake along the row. 

After the re-birth of Butler spirit (remember 
the Friday dances and the spontaneous celebra- 
tion after winning the ICC football champion- 
ship?) we nurtured the infant in the surround- 
ings of the Atherton Center . . . and it survived 
that first year. 

Some thought the campus club to be merely 
a place to waste time ... it was more than 
that ... it was a place where we gathered to- 
gether—with at least one mutual interest— to re- 
lax in a congenial atmosphere.

Two was company this year just as every other 
year at Butler. Beginning with the first appraising 
glances upperclassmen gave the new freshman 
girls, love was in season all year. 

Couples strolled through Holcomb Gardens, 
gazed at each other dreamily at the season's big 
dances and kissed sloshily while getting the hose 
treatment after they were pinned. 

Being engaged was as popular as ever, and many 
of us chose 1954 to begin proving that two can't 
live as cheaply as one. Fort Knox entered our vo- 
cabulary as the male half of many couples tried 
army life. 

In abundance were the eager casanovas who 
presented their fraternity pins at a different house 
almost every month. A few cautious souls who 
didn't want to rush into anything tried going 
steady . . . each weekend saw a few more con- 
firmed bachelors join the ranks of the chain gang. 

Spring came as usual and pins went out . . . also 
as usual . . . but, whether we dated, palpitated, or 
just waited, most of us agreed that love helped 
make Butler's world go around. 

Almost nothing at Butler is as successful, fun-wise, as 
the annual all-school picnic. Held this year at Broad Ripple 
park shortly after the opening of school, the picnic gave 
newcomers a terrific chance to get acquainted, and old- 
timers an opportunity to catch up on all the past summer's 

New sorority pledges were on hand to entertain the 
group with their stunts and antics. Games— and above all, 
food— added to the enjoyment of all who attended. 

Loyalty Legion sponsored the all-campus shindig and 
again reported its terrific success. Despite rumors of girls 
involuntarily going "swimming," fellows tasting mud-dogs 
instead of hot dogs, and pledges muffing their lines pa- 
thetically, the all-school picnic's success story was echoed 
through Jordan halls for days to follow. 

Roasting wienies is more fun when 
coat hangers are used for forks. Fresh- 
men pay no attention to outside dis- 
tractions . . . "The wienie is the 

Girls and boys lazily prepare to 
devour the typical picnic meal — 
probably prepared over the hot 
"stove" by the little women! "But 
dearie, you burned it!"

College life is something removed . . . something 
just a little different from anything else in the world. 
At school we began to accept responsibility, but it 
didn't wear us out ... we were on our own a great 
deal . . . but the thought didn't worry us ... we saved 
plenty of time for horse-play, general merriment, and 
all-round nonsense. 

We played bridge in the C-club, haphazardly tried 
our artistic hand at keeping pin-up boards, wore our 
high-school-old saddles every day, and even started 
new fashions in clothes . . . from Bermuda shorts, to 
toreador pants, to knee-length hose. 

Perhaps we even took on what we thought was a 
touch of sophistication, and visited some of the local 
scenic spots . . . but only if we were of voting age. 

Pttf/c Eifihtccn 

Regardless of age, we laughed at the ultra-sophisti- 
cation of "The Moon is Blue," danced to Ray Anthony 
and Duke Ellington, read Mickey Spillane, and sang 
the age-old " 'Tvvas a Cold Winter's Evening." 

We listened to "St. George and the Dragon," cut 
our hair till the campus looked like an all-male one, 
and wore powder-blue velvet, red corduroy, and 
checked cotton vests. We were in college, and col- 
legians we determined to be. 

We tried to urge a drink from the reluctant foun- 
tains that were in Jordan Hall . . . tried to return o\'er- 
due library books without the penalty . . . tried at- 
tending a multitude of meetings from the Boy Bird- 
watchers club to Home Ec society for nutrition 
majors . . , We walked in the rain and snow, collected 
clothes for the Cheer Drive, campaigned for offices, 
worried about summer school, played in intramurals, 
worked on plays, attended church services, and were 
late for eight o'clock classes. 

We were unified . . . we were carefree . . . we 
worked. But no matter what else we did, we had fun!

The proverbially mixed-up freshman was 
mixed up even more the first week of school . . . 
this time with a purpose . . . the Freshman Mixer. 

Green beanies and push-ups were forgotten as 
frosh boys and girls in Atherton looked at each 
other, hesitated, and then finally danced to the 
music of Billy Moore. 

Trim Maria Jeanne Shimer from Marion was 
chosen typical freshman girl and her partner, 
typical boy, was Dave Gentry from Crawfords- 

Although the Indian summer heat made for a 
"hot time in the old town" the freshmen, as well 
as the many uppercIassMEN who dropped in 
to look over the fall "crop," agreed that the 
Mixer would remain a basic Butler tradition. 

W R A Square Dance 

Chill in the air . . . the sharp smell of 
cider (hard?) . . . "boogy men" on dark 
campus paths. Halloween had again come 
to Butler. 

We celebrated in traditional fashion . . . 
small and bigger parties scattered here and 
there . . . and the WRA Square Dance Octo- 
ber 28. We treked to the fieldhouse for 
squares and cider from a barrel . . . we 
threw pennies in a jar for our Witch and 
Scarecrow votes, and we mulled over the 
thought of who would win. Finally we 
laughed excitedly as the "crowns" were 
given to Witch Odie McMullen and Scare- 
crow Warren Sparks. 

Janie Knoebel, WRA President, has a 
long reach to the top of "Sparkie's" crew 
cut . . . but that's where the crown be- 
longs . . . and is put. 

Did we ever see a redheaded witch? Not 
till Odie came to Butler . . . Once again 
Janie reaches for the top . . . but this time 
it's not so far up.

Pdnhel Dance 

It was different than every other dance . . . 
something was backwards or topsy-turvy ... it 
was Panhel, and the girls had saved their al- 
lowances all year for the big night. They bought 
and made corsages, they bought dinners, they 
bought tickets, they bought . . . 

Dave Richey took the trophy for Panhel King. 
Pat Manley took the Prom ticket for her man's 
"King of Hearts" corsage . . . and the females 
took the next day off to recuperate after the 
thrills of the Panhel Dance. 

House Dances 
in Costume 

Fraternity and sorority house dances dotted 
the campus calendar throughout the year, and 
costume affairs ranked high on the popularity 
hst. The Phi Delts' "Cafe of Nations" brought 
everyone to the house dressed as wealthy for- 
eigners; Sigma Nus and their annual "Barroom 
Brawl" showed imagination at its best costume- 
wise: Pi Phi pledges successfully tried something 
new with a "Cannibal Capers" dance— dress was 

sarongs and bare feet; and Lambda Chis put on 
their annual "Shipwreck Dance" where everyone 
came depicting someone they would "most like 
to be shipwrecked with." 

Every year a new twist and a new costume 
add sparkle to the old tradition of costume 
parties. And every year confirms the suspicion 
that the dances are here to stay.

Prom Beard- Growing 

Seven hairy-faced gents on campus gathered 
in the C-Club the afternoon of the Junior Prom. 
Although they appeared to be rather suspicious- 
looking characters, everyone knew what they 
were doing there. Those in doubt soon found 
out as the line guage was whipped out and held 
up to the whiskers of each "vandal." When final 
measuring and conferring were over, Gene Kuz- 
mic was presented with a Prom ticket-his whisk- 
ers were the longest. Gene immediately ran for 
the barber shop, where runner-up Sanford 
Schwartz de-fuzzed him. 

Diddy Keeling and Duke Ellington provided most of the 
thrills and excitement of the Junior Prom. Diddy was 
crowned Queen of the Prom by Chairman Stan Volz, while 
Bev Brantner, Marge VIcDowell, Nancy Roberts, Carolyn 
Aldrich, Joan Leslie, and Peggy Cox formed her court. 

Duke Ellington banged out strictly "listening" music on 
his piano as well as conducting smooth waltzes and jivey 
jazz for the pleasure of those who came to dance. The com- 
fortably crowded Indiana Roof proved once more that the 
Juniors ha^ e the know-how to stage a dance successfully.

Prettiest dresses and best 
suits were donned the night 
of the Sophomore CotilHon. 
The dance, held in Ather- 
ton Center early in March, 
was highlighted by the pre- 
sentation oi: Queen Kay 
Ephlin and her court in- 
cluding Eleanor Van Dyke, 
Alpha Chi; Vicky Fable, 
Independent; Caroline 
Yakey, Kappa; Rhonda

Wilson, Zeta. 

Spurs, sophomore wom- 
en's honorary, decorated 
the Center with rose arbors 
and gardenias.

Sock Hop 

After almost every game a natural pro- 
cession from the fieldhouse to the C-Club 
followed. Sock hops were the common way 
of celebrating our victories or forgetting 
our losses. 

We checked our shoes at the door, then 
spent a couple of hours dirtying our socks 
beyond the point of ever getting them 
"Rinso white." We bunny-hopped till we 
were purple, panting, and exhausted . . . 
only to be sufficiently revived enough to 
jitterbug or Charleston to the next tune.

The ever-popular life-saving classes 
are the specialty of Mrs. Davis, Butler 
physical education and swimming in- 
structor. Her girls may be "all wet" 
now, but once they pass the course 

and receive the badge for their bath- 
ing suits, summer days will see them 
sporting the prettiest sun tans on their 
shoulders and the handsomest men on 
their arms! 

Jean Ann Woodring, Butler freshman and Indianapolis 
Athletic Club swimming and diving champ, chose swim- 
ming as her physical education activity. Pictured on the 
right as she inevitably begins her class— on the diving 
board— the graceful and agile Jean twists her body into 
the innumerable contortions of jack-knife, swan, and 
gainer dives. But no matter how she starts, Jean always 
winds up as she is pictured (well, almost) below.

Our winding campus roads, our lovely 
limestone buildings, and our baby Holcomb 
Lake all fit together to form the beautiful pat- 
tern of nature and man called Butler. 

A scarcity of snow this winter left Spring 
and Autumn the task of painting the campus 

in even more beautiful colors than usual. 
Neither failed in their undertaking, as Hol- 
comb Gardens and Butler campus were trans- 
formed into a picture of beauty seldom 
equaled and never surpassed.

Jordan College of Music 

Located off campus are the Jordan 
College of Music buildings. Students 
in the field of music have three build- 
ings at their disposal for classes, 
practice rooms, auditoriums, and even 
a campus club of their own. One day 
the university hopes to move this col- 
lege out to the Fairview campus along 
with the others.

John Herron Art Institute 

The two John Herron Art In- 
stitute buildings on Pennsylvania 
Street in downtown Indianapolis 
accommodate many Butlerites 
majoring in art. John Herron is 
affiliated with Butler in a man- 
ner making possible credited 
work leading to a degree in art 
or art education.

Like reflections in a mirror, Holcomb Lake 
mimics the trees, the sky, and the greenery 
around it. It reacts unhesitatingly to the least 
disturbance of its ordinarily still surface. Despite 
the use of Holcomb Lake as the brunt of nu- 
merous jokes and reactionary traditions, it still 
is one of the favorite scenic beauty spots at 

At the mouth of Holcomb 
Lake is the Falls, continually 
gushing forth a clear, sparkling 
tumult to the waters below. 
Often crossed— although never in 
a barrel— the Falls add life and 
beauty to the man-made lake at 
its feet.

The "filling station" on the corner 
has been replaced by the Alpha 
Chi's monstrous and beautiful new 
house which will be ready for oc- 
cupancy in the fall of '54. The 
house is white frame and red brick, 
and is of Colonial architecture. 

After a hectic year of eating in 
the Atherton Center dining room, 
meeting in the lounge, and rushing 
in the fraternity houses, the Alpha 
Chis are thankful that their new 
home is nearing completion.

Jordan Hall 

Arthur Jordan Memorial Hall— nucleus of the 
campus. Here deans and doctors lecture to Stu- 
dents and students; headaches and backaches 
are caused and relieved; bills and fines are given 
and taken. Without Jordan Hall and its sup- 
plement, Jell Hall, Butler University would die 
just as the human nucleus is essential to human

Operation Expansion: Butler, 1954. 
Construction is almost an integral part 
of the campus scene at Butler. Shortly 
after the completion of Atherton Center 
in 1951, plans for building a men's dorm 
were underway, and today those plans 
have changed from blueprints to stone. 

The men's dormitory, located on the 
corner of Hampton Drive and Sunset, 
will be ready for occupancy September, 
1954. Also going up rapidly is the Butler 
Observatory, seen now in its infant stages 
across from the School of Religion build- 
ing. The observatory will house one of 
the largest telescopes in the country, and 
will be used mainly by astronomy stu- 
dents and hobbyists. 

Alpha Chi Omega sorority tore down 
its old house on Hampton Drive, and 
now has a beautiful brick and frame one 
replacing it. 

Seen here is one end of the new men's dormitory, built for 
the university by the Air Force. While the dormitory is primarily 
for the use of the AFROTC students, living quarters will be 
available to any Butler man desiring to stay there. 

The newest completed building on cam- 
pus, the Garden House, was the scene of 
many teas, meetings, and sorority dances 
during the past year. 

The Indiana limestone-California red- 
wood structure is located in the south-east 
section of the beautiful James Irving Hol- 
comb Botanical Gardens, where myriad 
flowers are dominated by the bronze statue 
of Persephone, Goddess of growth and 

Persephone— goddess 
of fruitful seasons. Per- 
petually she guards the 
art-inspiring James Ir- 
ving Holcomb Botanical 
Gardens. Annually she 
is the center of attrac- 
tion for Spring Sing. 
And frequently she is 
the object of much pic- 
ture-taking. Truly, in all 
her ancient glory, she is 
the first lady of the cam-

John Whistler Atherton Center 

Atherton Center— beehive of activity the year around, and 
oldest of friends to many Butlerites. Campus Club bridge, Trianon 
and BISA meetings— and this year Alpha Chi meetings temporarily— 
study in the lounge for those who do not prefer the library, con- 
venient Bookstore shopping for a new toothbrush or a pair of shoes, 
Alumni Office, and Drift Office— all this in Atherton Center. 

Built in 1950, the Center has come to play a leading role in 
the daily activities of almost every Butlerite, from President Ross 
to Director Robert Newton, to college deans and faculty, to 

The curriculum followed in Atherton Center is about as varied 
as the designs seen on men's ties. From formal dances to sock hops, 
from official meetings to C-Club get-togethers, from strictly busi- 
ness to "strictly social"— from anything to everything, the answer is 
found in a part of Atherton Center. 

Page Forty-fou 

We ate in the Atherton dining 
room— whether we were pledges be- 
ing kept out of the C-CIub until we 
made our grades, Alpha Chis with no 
place else to go for meals, or just 
plain people preferring a good hot 
meal over a hamburger and french 

We worked in Atherton— whether 
we practiced music on the lounge 
piano, met in an upstairs room to dis- 
cuss plans for a coming extracur- 
ricular event, or tried to figure all the 
angles in the next pool shot. 

We paid in Atherton— whether it 
was downstairs for books, in the drug- 
store for almost anything, or in the C- 
Club for our fifth cup of coffee. 


The Pharmacy Building, hub of pharmaceut- 
ical activity on the Butler campus, was opened 
in 1951. Today it is the monumental edifice of 
several hundred pharmacy students who attend 
classes and laboratory sessions there daily. These 
students and the faculty members still wonder 
at the modern facilities of the building— a far 
cry from their old downtown quarters! 

Year around centers of ath- 
letic activity are the Field- 
house and the Butler Bowl. 
When varsity games aren't 
being played, physical educa- 
tion classes are in session in 
the fieldhouse. High school 
basketball tournaments are 
held there annually. 

Just east of the Fieldhouse 
is the Bowl. Intermural foot- 
ball and baseball fields, as 
well as the track field, base- 
ball diamond, and tennis 
courts are all located on the 
spacious grounds adjacent to 
the buildings. The new park- 
ing lot provides an answer to 
the parking problem which 
accompanies sporting events 
of all kinds. 

The gridiron bulldogs made 1953 a year to be 
remembered footballwise by sweeping six con- 
secutive games and winning their first Intercol- 
legiate conference title. With a six-two record 
the team completed a season full of outstanding 
individual performances and exceptional team 

The Butler nine began the ICC season by 
walloping Evansville, then rode over Ball State, 
squeaked by Wabash, and defeated St. Joseph, 
Indiana State, Valpo. 

With high spirits a gallant band journeyed to 
Washington of St. Louis only to be deflated by 
a heartbreaking Bears win. Western Reserve 
provided a sad ending to the season's story by 
defeating the Bulldogs in their last game. 

Three hundred of the faithful rallied around 
the champs November 17 at a rally in front of 
Atherton Center. The band played, the crowd 
cheered excitedly and the heroes looked sheep- 
ishly happy. 

The glory, however, went to Coach Tony 
Hinkle and his team who were, as Dr. M. O. 
Ross said at the rally, "one of the finest Butler 
has ever had."

Anything goes at the Tri Delt Dubhn Fair, given 
to raise money for a scholarship fund to help Butler 
women finish school. 

Specialties of the Fair are games of skill, with a 
pie-eating queen and "Oomph-Man" king highlight- 
ing the evening. Paul Janota, Lambda Chi, flirted his 
way to the "Oomph" trophy in keds, longies, swim- 
ming trunks, sweat shirt, and derby hat. Kappa 
Natalie O'Dell ate her way to fame as she devoured 
the messy but tasty raspberry pie in record time. And 
Sigma Nu Dick Beehan walked off with the prize of 
the evening— a date with Tri Delt President Char 
Green— after "splitting Harrigan's hair." 

Lambda Chi Paul Janota 
posed pretty, winked at the Tri 
Delts, and then walked off with 
the "Mr. Oomph-Man, 1954" 
loving cup. 

Fortune telling in a deep, 
dark corner of the sorority bum 
room was a popular pastime at 
the Fair. 

Char Green squints her eyes 
as another soggy sponge almost 
hits the bulls-eye. 

"If you like pie, you'll love 
our contest," says Char to un- 
suspecting contestants.

Half-time concession purchases lagged 
this year. We all came to the same con- 
clusion—no one wanted to miss the Color 
Guard show coming up. 

The girls of the Color Guard gained 
state-wide recognition for their novelty 
and precision in putting on the half-time 
shows during the basketball season. 
Their skill was equally well displayed at 
the football games when they saluted 
our own Bulldogs and the visiting teams. 

There's reason for the perplexed look! 
The question is— just who is buying the 

It wasn't all play this year. 
Even when we played we 
worked. Pledge stunts— they took 
time and work to be perfected 
enough to suit the rather fanatic 
tastes of the actives. 

Our cars weren't always in the 
best of condition. Occasionally 
we had to repair a cracked block 
... or stop gas station by gas 
station to give our radiators a 
"drink" ... or collect from in- 
surance companies on the acci- 
dents that "the other fellow" 

On Wednesday nights pledges 
cooked for forty-some actives. 
That was play ... or so the 
actives thought! But after we 
burned the coffee, served cold 
roasts, and spilled the ice-water, 
they thought it would be easier 
to order dinners from Sam's Sub- 
way. And then our work mas

We played tricks even before 
April Fools Day ... we all thought 
we stayed out too late the night 
before when a boat appeared in 
the C-Club. We were sure that 
was it when "B.P.T.E." notes began 
flying all over the campus. 

Then one fateful, rainy noon we 
learned the answers to all the 
mystery in which we had been 
shrouded for weeks. A small ex- 
pedition of Juniors (and a couple 
of Seniors) set sail in the boat to 
cross Holcomb Lake. The "B.P. 
T.E.'s" turned into "Buy Prom 
Tickets Early"— and all was over 
. . . except the dunkings. 


Butlei's outstanding athletic 
record for 1953-54 is due to 
the individual and team abili- 
ties of the players. But even 
more important than this, the 
winning Bulldogs owe their 
success to the coaching staff. 
Headed by Paul D. "Tony" 
Hinkle, our coaches have led 
our teams and our school to 
victory in every sporting event 
attempted. Records were bro- 
ken and rebroken this year, 
and all because of terrific team- 
work and exceptional coaching.

Jim Crosley, scrappy Bulldog 
guard, was selected as the most 
valuable player on the Butler squad. 
This made the third year the ex- 
Pendleton star wore the Blue and 
White for the Bulldogs. 

Playing his best game against Ball 
State in the Fieldhouse, the "little 
guy" hit 30 points for the season's 
individual high. This was only three 
short of the record held b>' "Buck- 
shot" O'Brien. 

Most ^•aluable player as picked by Indian- 
apolis sports writers is Captain Jim 

In a basketball season that saw records fall 
like rain, Butler's Keith Greve, the Waveland, 
Indiana, guard erased the name of Buckshot 
O'Brien from the slate of high-scorers and 
substituted his own with the amazing total of 
427 points tallied in a single season. 

The sharp-shooting Bevo Francis of Rio 
Grande established a new Field House scoring 
record with 48 points as his team downed the 
Bulldogs 81-68. 

In ICC competition, Butler shared the cham- 
pionship with Evansville, as both teams amassed 
an 8-4 record. 

Jim Crosley and Keith Greve were selected 
as members of the ICC honor team. Crosley was 
elected Most Valuable Player by Indianapolis 
sports writers after the Bulldogs finished the 
season with a 13-12 record.

Climax of tlie highly successful foot-

banquet in honor of the 1953-54 Hinkle-

highest praise were heard as the ICC 
Champs cheered Most Valuable Player 
Freddie Davis, Senior members of the

Later in the year the university and 
the team were presented a huge gold

Thunderous applause greeted the humorous 
comments of Robt. Nipper on the present-da\' 
"tactics" of basketball. 

For the second time this year Butler 
received a huge gold trophy in recog- 
nition of its athletic achievement. At 
the basketball banquet a large basket- 
ball was added to the football re- 
ceived earlier. The banquet, spon- 
sored by Utes, honored all members 
of the basketball team, and especially 
the Seniors, Coach Tony Hinkle, and 
Most Valuable Player Jim Crosley. 
Shortridge Coach Robt. Nipper was 
the chief speaker. 

"Food first, then speeches and 
awards," was in the minds of 
members of the team. 

Seated at the Speakers Table 
were Bill Davis, Utes Pres.; Bill 
Lee, Banquet Clini.; Coach Hinkle, 
Norman Bryant, Robt. Nipper, and 
Dr. Howard.

Lambda Chi Alpha was again the 
leader in the Butler university intra- 
mural program under the direction of 
Herb Schwomeyer and "Pop" Hed- 
den. This makes the second straight 
year that the Lambda Chis have won 
the intramural trophy. With only two 
sports left it is assured that they will 
win the crown for the second straight 

In winning the crown the Lambda 
Chis won the Volleyball, Basketball, 
Bowling, and Swimming titles. They 
failed to place in only two sports- 
golf and table tennis. 

Phi Delta Theta won the football 
championship with a 7-1-0 record. 
They set a record in scoring as they 
defeated the Sammies 48-0. The 
Sigma Nus finished second with a 6- 
1-1 record while the Lambda Chis 
were third and the Phi Kappas ended 
in fourth place. 

Sigma Chi finished the tennis sea- 
son with a perfect record of eight 
victories. Herb Dixson and Dave 
Gentry were the stars for the winners. 
The Lambda Chis finished second 
with a 7-1 mark and the Phi Delts 
took third with a 6-2 record.

In one of the most successful football seasons 
in recent years, Tony Hinkle's Bulldogs walked 
off with the Indiana Collegiate Conference 
crown with a perfect 6-0 record. 

Evansville, Wabash, Ball State, St. Joseph, 
Indiana State, and Valparaiso fell before the 
Blue and White. Only Washington of St. Louis 
and Western Reserve stopped the Bulldogs in 
non-conference tilts. 

Gene Kuzmic, fleet-footed Butler halfback, 
captured top scoring honors for the Hinkle- 
men with eight touchdowns and seventeen con- 
versions for a total of sixty-five points. 

Although the Blue and White closed out its 
season on November 14, Quarterback Fred Davis 
took to the field again on Christmas Eve as a 
member of Stu Holcomb's Yankee squad in the 
annual North-South charity game at Miami,

Butler football in 1953 reminded Fairview 
fans of the days when the Bulldogs would 
challenge any team in the country. And, the 
modern Bulldogs had little promise in pre- 
season statistics. The Big Blue Wave had a 
graduation and draft loss that indicated a 
poor season, but the result of 35 men with 
a lot of spirit, good size, and Coach Hinkle's 
gridiron know-how made the outfit a winner. 

The Bulldogs had power to burn. Since 
freshman Leroy Thompson was a candidate 
for fullback, veteran Norm Ellenberger was 
switched to one of the halfback posts. This 
power combination set up a strong rushing 

At the other half was Gene Kuzmic, also a 
powerful runner capable of speed and broken 
field tactics. Fred Davis, ranked among the 
best in the aerial department, quarterbacked. 
Davis was elected to play in the national 
North \'ersus South contest. 

The line was equally strong. Outstanding 
were George Freyn, Bob Eicholtz, Ralph 
London, and Scott Chandler. All of these men 
were named on the ICC dream team. 

The lack of speed, and the need for a 
stiffer defense due to the no-platoon system 
helped prescribe the general plan for the 
season. We needed at least four touchdowns 
per game to win. In all but two games we got 
the scores, and we won all but two of the

Under the tutelage of Coach Tony Hinkle the Butler grid- 
ders captured their first undisputed ICC football championship. 
The Bulldogs completed the conference circuit undefeated. 

The Dean of Indiana Coaches and his staff of assistants 
moulded a team that gained 2091 yards rushing while their op- 
ponents totaled only 1040; scored 236 points to their opponents 
120; and tallied 141 first downs to their opponents 87. 

Individual scorers of the season were led by sophomore 
Gene Kuzmic who accounted for 65 points. Ellenberger scored 
48 and Thompson and Freyn each had 42. 

Davis, the throwing-half of all aerial combo's completed 
8 scoring passes and gained a total of 852 yards in the air. Only 
four of his 116 passes were intercepted. 

Thompson was tops in the individual rushing column with 
an average of 6.1 yards per carry in 125 attempts. Kuzmic av- 
eraged 6.4 for 73 tries and Ellenberger hit 4.4 in 86 tries. 

The first defeat of the '53 season was from Washington of 
St. Louis. In the Washington game (the second-to-last of the 
season) the Bulldogs met lor the first time a single-wing offen- 
sive without the benefit of pre-game scouting. 

The Hinklemen faced a similar situation against Western 
Reserve of Cleveland in the final game. The Bulldogs, thoroughly 
scouted by the out-of-staters, met the Clevelanders in the Butler 
Bowl and for the first time they met an exceptionally fast team 
that also had a strong defense. The Bulldogs lost a heart-breaker 
by a score of 21-20.

The 1953-54 year brought with it 
several innovations in the Butler 
AFROTC Unit headed by PAS&T 
Col. Ben K. Armstrong. Although 
the unit is smaller than in the past, 
it has been a very successful year 
for the cadets and their instructors. 

T/Sgt. James F. Rich was newly 
assigned to the supply staff this 
year. Another addition to the AF- 
ROTC was made, although of a 
much difFerent nature. This was 
the "Wings Over Butler" annual, 
which first came out in January. 

Cadet Col. Robert Reed led the 
ROTC group through the year. 

Drum and Bugle Corps, Butler AFROTC 

Arnold Air Society is an honorary fraternity 
open to those who show themselves to be out- 
standing cadet officers. At Butler, the group is 
known as the Jerome K. Tartar Squadron, named 
in honor of the first PAS&T at the university. 

The AFROTC .Drum and Bugle Corps is in 
its second year at Butler. The corps has become 
an accomplished group, and provides marching

Cadets soon after the opening of the fall se- 
mester. She and her court were presented with 
capes and commissions at the Unit's annual Fall 
Review. On April 2 the girls received trophies 
of recognition at the annual Vlilitary Ball. The 
dance, held at the Indiana Roof, was under the 
supervision of Cadet. Lt. Col. Leonard Oshier. 
Claude Thornhill and his nationally famous or- 
chestra were on hand for the affair, which was 
attended by over 450 Cadets and their dates. 
Cadet Jim Breen was chairman of the decora- 
tions committee, and the Cadet PIO Staff 
handled the publicity.

year at Butler. The genial PAS&T will be re- 
assigned to another duty during the summer, 
and the entire AFROTC Unit as well as all 
Butler faculty members and students will be dis- 
appointed to see him leave. 

Precision is the keynote to the entire Unit, but 
perhaps is most important for the Drill Team. 
After-class practicing paid off for the team, 
when they were highly commended at the Fed- 
eral Inspection. Cadet Capt. Don Spaid com- 
manded the team, and Cadet Maj. Finch acted 
as advisor.

as the team members, but are 
recognized only slightly. 

Pulling whispers of "Rah!" out

Post-game chatter 

Convocations were as much a 
part of the school year as vaca- 
tions and final exams. This year 
something new was tried at the 
Christmas convocation when 
members of the Jordan ballet 
enacted the birth of Christ. In 
its simple beauty the pageant, 
under the direction of Miss Ei- 
leen Poston, recaptured the true 
spirit of Christmas in the hearts 
of all who were present.

Posters and people were tlie vital 
elements in all our queenship elec- 
tions. And if we could find an avail- 
able convertible or compose "come- 
on" songs, all the better. 

When the day of balloting finally 
arrived, only the men were allowed 
to "cross over the poll line" — the 
women had to sta\' outside and try 
not to look nervous. 

Long hours of vigorous campaign- 
ing, flirtatious persuading, and out- 
right pleading led to the prized 
trophy and crown for some lucky 

How many times did we sit in the C- 
Club nonchalantly wearing banners for our 
caucus' candidate in a queenship race? 
Often we were even talked into wearing 
two streamers— one for each! As we mulled 
over a bridge hand we could hear cam- 
paign songs above the din of the juke-bo.x 
... we could see elaborately decorated 
posters being paraded back and forth to 
advertise the girls' "queenly qualities." 
After it was all over we cheered the new 
queen . . . then caucus connections didn't 
matter till the next time.

We lost everything from gloves to 
hearts in the halls of Jordan . . . 
sometimes we found them on the 
huge bulletin board, but more often 
they were gone for good. We drank 
cokes incessantly ... we tried to keep 
our shoes shiny e.xcept if it were 
saddles we were wearing . . . we 
danced, played, worked, slept (well, 
sometimes). Our grimmest troubles 
were hilarious "past experiences" in a 
matter of minutes. Our pin-up boards 
were our treasured records of the col- 
lege year just passing. Whatever we 
did we did enthusiastically . . . and 
we loved it.

"... and then I put a note on the black- 
board saying that Dr. Howard wouldn't be 
able to make his eight o'clock." 

"One for you, one for Judy, and 
one for the pot." 

"Hey, everybody! They're having a fire sale 
at Bargain Bob's!"

Although they are seldom seen on the Fair- 
view campus, Jordan seniors are still ver>' much 
a part of the Class of 1954. Here we see some of 
them chatting over cokes and coffee, while

A beautiful sunny sky, a bunch of Junior 
fellows, and a cream-colored convertible — 
these all go together like books and the 
library. The Juniors here look bright and 
cheerful, but who knows? They may be 
planning to take some pledge or active for 
a ride to nowhere! 

Polly is given the go-sign by a few of her 
Junior classmates. They might be going to 
Knobby 's, they might be going to an intra- 
mural game, or home. Spring and fall, con- 
vertibles go everywhere — and chances are 
that a Junior will be found in most anj- of

In 1871, the first public water supply in Indianapolis began operation. It was 
not until 1903, however, that the Indianapolis Water Company caught up with Butler. 
At that time, water mains Were laid In Butler Avenue and University Avenue, adjacent 
to the Irvington campus. Today, a safe and adequate water supply surrounds Butler 
and from the campus can be seen the canal, another landmark for the homing student. 

This "funny old car*' thai looks so antique beside today 
sleek, powerful motor cars was once the finest thing c 
the road — "the ultimate in styling and engine design. 

And the "gas" that was dispensed fn 
hand pump in front of the grocery store 
from the modern super-fuels you get al 
service stations) was once "the finest 

{quite different 
today's super- 
at any price." 


chan g ed them? 

You don't have to look far for the answer. 
It's competition. 

Ev^ry person and business in America is 
free to outdo the other fellow — to produce 
something better — so more people will buy it. 
That's why this year's cars are sleeker and 
more powerful than last year's. That's why 
service stations (like ours) keep getting 
more modern and gleaming, offering finer 
and finer petroleum products. 
Competition among tens of thousands of 
independent businesses in the petroleum 
industry makes such progress possible — and 

As long as our economic system works that 
way, this will be a pretty wonderful and 
exciting country, won't it, in which to live 
and work and get ahead?
