This IS a record of a year
It contains you, vour friends,
Butler and 1954 stop
a moment to recall how this
combination has earned a
page in your book of fondest
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-
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
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!"
iStH RE CORD WILL
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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,
Yakey, Kappa; Rhonda
Jones, Theta; Dorothy Ann
Logan, T r i Delt; Susie
Lucas, Pi Phi; and Carolyn
Spurs, sophomore wom-
en's honorary, decorated
the Center with rose arbors
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
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
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

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.
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
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
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

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.

room— whether we were pledges be-

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-
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."
I. C. C. Rally
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."

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!

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.

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
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

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.
Wining 19 straight games in basket-
ball the Lambda Chis also won the
all-school basketball tournament.
They defeated the Pool Room Eight
in the final game 51-38. Sigma Nu
finished second in the basketball
league with the Phi Delts and Kappa
Sigs and Phi Kappas following in that
Bowling was a new sport added
to the intramural action with the
Lambda Chis winning the event. The
Delts finished second and the Sigma
Nus finished third.

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
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,
Ellenberger is stopped in his scoring attempt by a Ball State tackier.
Thompson tries to side-step two tacklers
but the Indiana State bovs hold on.

Chandler tries to snag Davis's throw.

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
Left to right — Scott Cliandler, Maneit Kennedy, Gene
Kvizmic, Bill Hugliett, Dick Berndt, Fred Davis, Leroy
Thompson, Paul Furnish, Norm EUenberger, Ralph
London, and George Freyn.
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.

these all go together like books and the
library. The Juniors here look bright and
cheerful, but who knows? They may be

Polly is given the go-sign by a few of her
Junior classmates. They might be going to

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

And the "gas" that was dispensed fn

chan g ed them?
You don't have to look far for the answer.
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?
