IN THIS the Centennial edition of the Butler University 
Drift, it is a pleasure to extend greetings to students, faculty, 
alumni, and friends of Butler University. For many years 
the Drift has played an important part in the progress of the 
University. It has been not only a book recording in picture 
and in print the event? ^f each year on the campus, but it has 
also been an artistic production. Alumni and friends at Butler 
University continuously refer to copies of the Drift for infor- 
mation concerning classmates, faculty and campus develop- 
ment. This beautiful Centennial edition is a fitting climax to 
many years of publication of the Drift and it is a most appro- 
priate basis for the beginning of the next one hundred years of 
the progress and growth of the University. The future holds 
much of promise for Butler University. Already an increase in 
enrollment is getting under way. This increase will in all prob- 
ability be gradual for two or three years, then mount rapidly 
thereafter. To meet the demands of the future, Butler Univer- 
sity must continue to orow in faculty and facilities. As an 
urban university in a s\\ iftl\- growing city, a rare opportunity 
to serve a metropolitan area is offered. With the assistance of 
students, faculty, alumni, and all others connected with the 
institution, that opportunity can be met, and the Drift of the 
future will record in portrait, picture and print the accom- 
plishments of the oncoming years.

Men's Residence Hall 

An important step toward the expansion of Butler University was 
taken with the addition of the Men's Residence Hall located at 629 
West Hampton Drive. 

Costing approximately $1,000,000, it was the first such building on 
the Fairview campus and preceded a women's dormitory which the 
University started this spring. 

The building and the men residents are under the direct super- 
vision of Dr. L. Gray Burdin, Dean of Men. His aids are Mrs. Avanelle 
Atchinson (left), office manager; Herb Dixon (left), resident advisor; 
and Jack Bowers, second-floor counsellor. 

The dorm has rooms for 278 men students and three counsellors. 
At the present time, 166 men are living there, representing 18 states, 
the Philippine Islands and the Canal Zone. 

Each room has facihties for two men with rsvo lounge-type beds, 
double desks, lounge chair, night table, three lamps and double clothes 
closets. The hall also has a fully-equipped game room and a lounge, 
which is the largest single area in the dorm.

Holcomb Observatory 

The newest addition to the Butler campus was formally completed 
with the dedication on November 5, 1954 of the James Irving Holcomb 
Observatory and Planetarium. This officially opened the University's 
year-long centennial celebration. 

The building was designed and constructed in eighteen months 
under the direction of Arthur Lindberg, superintendent of building 
and grounds for Butler. Dr. Harry Crull (right) is Director of the 

The 38-inch reflecting telescope is the largest in the state and 10th 
largest in the nation. An interesting feature of the telescope is that the 
guide telescope, a six-inch refractor, is the reconditioned former oc- 
cupant of the University observatory on the old Irvington campus. It 
was rebuilt by the J. W. Fecker Company, who constructed the 

The building, which will be one of the outstanding attractions of 
the midwest, was donated by Mr. and Mrs. J. I. Holcomb of Indian- 
apolis who contributed the entire $350,000 cost. Mr. Holcomb is Vice- 
President of of the Board of Directors of Butler University and chair- 
man of the Committee on Buildin"; and Grounds. 


Outdoor Theatre 

Butler students returning to classes last 
September found the Butler Bowl under- 
going a change. 

A $250,000 outdoor theatre was under 
constrOction in the south end of the 

The theater is being built by the City 
of Indianapolis as a part of a city-wide 
park improvement program on ground 
leased from Butler for $1.00 a year. It 
will be used jointly by the city and the 
University for many purposes, including 
outdoor presentations and commence- 
ment exercises. 

Construction on the Women's Resi- 
dence Hall, which is to cost approxi- 
mately S 1,000,000, began this spring. 

1 he building, located across from so- 
roritv row, will be similar in appearance 
to the recently constructed Men's Resi-

Ovid Butler 

Butler Celebrates 

Centennial Tear 

Following the theme of "Truth and Freedom 
Through Learning," Butler University is celebrat- 
ing its Centennial year. One hundred years ago, 
on November 1, 1855, Butler first opened its doors 
under the name of Northwestern Christian Uni- 

In 1877, the Board of Directors adopted the 
name of Butler Univeisity, in honor of Ovid But- 
ler, although he seriously objected to this change. 
After leading other civic-minded citizens in ob- 
taining a charter for the University, Air. Butler 
served as president of the Board of' Directors for 
twenty years. 

From a beginning enrollment of slightly more 
than 100, the University has grown until today, its 
student body numliers nearly 5000. Butler's first 
graduating class contained 3 members, a figure ri- 
diculously low when compared to the 400 mem- 
bers in this year's Centennial graduating class. In 
1855, the faculty consisted of seven members, while 
the Butler teaching staff nov.- boasts 130 members. 

If not actually the first, Butler was among the 
first colleges in the United States to offer the'samc 
advantages to women as to men. Its progressive 
attitude was further illustrated by the adoption of 
the elective system. That system, now in general 
use though modified, was then a decided innova- 
tion and had been tried in only two other colleges. 

Students in 1855 had their choice of six depart- 
ments: English, .Mathematics, Classical Languao-es, 
Natural Sciences, Morals, and Law. Toda)', die 

University consists of ten colleges, schools, and 
divisions: Liberal .\rts and Sciences, Education, 
Business Administration, Pharmacy, Jordan College 
of iMusic, the University College, the graduate 
School of Religion, the Division of Graduate In- 
struction, and the E\ening Division. In addition, 
Butler is affiliated with 'the John Herron Art 

Progress and achievement, twin cornerstones in 
the foundation of Butler University, are also ex- 
emplified by the building program. From a small 
college, with a campus of 26 acres, Butler has be- 
come a major university with one of the most 
beautiful campuses in the .Midwest. 

The Arthur Jordan Memorial Hall was the first 
building to be erected when the University was 
moved to Fairview Campus in 1928. In the same 
year, the Fieldhouse was built. 1942 saw the con- 
struction of the School of Religion Building; Ath- 
erton Center followed eight years later. In 1951, 
the Pharmacy Building, the J. I. Elolcomb .Memo- 
rial Gardens, and Holcomb Lake further enhanced 
the beauty of our campus. The autumn of 1954 
was marked by the opening of the .Men's Residence 
Hall and the dedication of the J. I. Holcomb Ob- 
servatory and Planetarium. 

But Butler has not stopped growing. In this, its 
Centennial year, plans are under way for a wom- 
en's dormitory, the Holcomb Bird Sanctuary, a 
library, and a Fine Arts Building which will in- 
clude an auditorium. 


This building was the home of the 
first students to attend Butler Univer- 
sity. Located at 13th and College, it 
was opened in November, 1855. A 
three story Gothic structure with two 
towers, the building was considered 
an imposing edifice and was admired 
by the whole community. This loca- 
tion was abandoned in 1875 for the 
new Irvington site. 


Many advantages were ofTered ■at 
Butler's new location. Opportunities 
for healthful recreation and exercise 
abounded in this small community, 
relatively free from the disturbances 
of a large city. A two-story building, 
large enough for 500 students and con- 
sisting of 12 recitation rooms and a 
large chapel, was built on this new 
campus. It was with reluctance that 
the students and faculty moved to a 
still more spacious site, Fairvicw Park 
in northern Indianapolis. 



When it became evident that the 
growth of the university would re- 
quire new and larger buildings, 246 
acres of campus known as Fairview 
Park were acquired. In 1928, Arthur 
Jordan Memorial Hall was ready for 
occupancy, marking the beginning of 
the tremendous growth and progress 
which was to come. A glance at 
pages 14-17 will present a srory with- 
out words of the constant expansion 
of Butler University.

At the close of our first one hundred years, special 
tribute should certainly be given to Mr. J. I. Holcomb 
who has done so much toward making the Butler campus 
one of the most beautiful in the country. The results of 
his generosity are everywhere— the Botanical Gardens, 
the Garden House and Lake, and the Centennial gift 
from Mr. and Mrs. Holcomb— the Observatory and 

Our state, our city, and everyone connected with the 
University is grateful to the Holcombs.

CHEERLEADERS. L. French, S. Baker, S. Johnson, J. Franklin, C. Sheppard, M. Campbell, 
J. Woolgar, J. Seymour. 

The cheerleaders are a vital part of any school's successful athletic program and the 
1954-55 varsity Bulldogs had eight spirited Butlerites directing the cheers during the football 
and basketball seasons. 

The squad consisted of seniors Marge Campbell, John Seymour and Larry French; 
juniors Judy Woolgar, Sandi Baker, and Cherrv Sheppard; and freshmen Sara Johnson and 
Jim Franklin. 

Playing vital behind-the-scenes roles in the activity of the Butler Athletic Department 
are Jim Morris, trainer, and Charles iMcElfresh, equipment manager. 

"Charlie" is the man that checks, rechecks, and keeps track of all of the balls, bats, shoes, 
uniforms, and any other equipment that the Bulldogs use, tear, or lose during the course 
of the year. 

The accomplishments of Jim Morris would fill a book by themselves. At the B-men's 
banquet for Jim last February, principal speaker Angelo Angelopolous of the Indianapolis 
News summed up the opinion of those attending when he said that he had never seen a banquet 
that made as much .sense as this one.

1954 Butler Bulldogs 

Butler's defending Indiana Collegiate Conference champions, 
who had posted a 5-0 league mark in 1953, relinquished the crown 
to Valparaiso last season as the Bulldogs finished with a 3-2 ICC 
mark and a total season record of 4 wins, 4 losses, and one tie. 

Coach "Tony" Hinkle's team was bolstered by several sopho- 
more and freshman players who should strengthen future Butler 

Sophomore fullback Leroy Thompson repeated as an All-Con- 
ference selection along with team captain Ralph London. Thomp- 
son led the team in total yards rushing with 692 yards for an 
average of 5.4 yards per carry. Two other sophomores, Nolan 
Masters and Lou Caporale, finished second and third in total 
yardage with 395 and 279 yards. Both halfbacks, .Masters and 
Caporale averaged six and five yards per carry respectively. 

Senior quarterback Les Gerlach was named the most valuable 
player on the 1954 team by the local sportswriters and radio men. 
Along with Gerlach, there were six other seniors on the team 
who received individual trophies at the football banquet. They 
were Ralph London, tackle; Charles Boltin, Dave Olinghouse, 
and John Davis, guards; Dick Berndt, center, and Gene Mangin, 

Gerlach completed 26 of 58 attempted passes for 430 yards and 
three touchdowns. Sophomore quarterback Dick Ahrendts hit 17 
of 34 passes for 287 yards and three scores, while Tom Rohra- 
baugh completed 11 of 28. 

Thompson was the team's leading scorer with 61 points on ten 
touchdowns and one extra point. Masters had four TD's for 24 
points; Gerlach tallied three times for 18, and Jim Knox ac- 
counted for 13 conversions. 

Freshman John Harrell scored twice for 12 points and single 
touchdowns were accounted for by Carl Fodor, Jim Baker, Lou 
Caporale, Scott Chandler, Nick Nardo, and Bob Maxey. 

In the pass receiving department, ends Leo iMahoney and Scott 
Chandler led with 152 and 102 yards. Mahoney caught nine passes 
and Chandler handled eight successfully. 





Most Valuable Player, 19S4 



Butler's Bulldogs opened their defense of the Indiana Collegate Conference crown with 
a 21-14 decision over Evansville in a night game at the loser's field on September 25. 

Les Gerlach accounted for two of the three Butler touchdowns, drivins; through the 
middle in the first quarter and sneaking over in the final period for the winning TD. Nolan 
Masters broke loose for at 62-yard touchdown run in the third quarter 'for the second score. 

Sophomore tackle Jim Knox converted after all three Butler scores to complete the 
scoring. A highlight of the contest u as the outstanding play of four sophomores, Knox, 
Masters, Leroy Thompson, and Lou Caporale. Thompson, the hard running fullback, showed 
the form he displayed last season ^^•hen he set an ICC rushing record. 


The second game again ended in a 21-14 score, this time with the Bulldogs on tM short 
end as Wabash's Little Giants edged Butler in the Bowl. ^ g 

Leroy Thompson climaxed a Bulldog march in the first quarter, plunging over from the 
four yard line to give Butler a 6-0 lead. Knox added the seventh point to make it 7-0, a lead 
which was held through a scoreless second quarter. 

Al Pavlikoski, Wabash halfback, tallied for the Cavemen in the third period and quarter- 
back Vaino Grayam added the PAT to tie the count at 7-7. In the fihal quarter, the "two 
platoon' system of Wabash accounted for two more scores and the Bulldogs trailed 21-7. 

Thompson scored again with Butler's second touchdown and Knox added the final point 
in the game. The season total was now 1-1. 


The Bulldogs dropped their second tilt in three starts, 26-15 to Ball State before a home- 
coming crowd of 8,600 at Muncie. 

The Cardinals started early, scoring on a 52-yard pass play in the first 2)j minutes of 
action. A Bulldog fumble followed, setting up the second Ball State score. The conversion 
attempt missed and Butler trailed 15-0. 

Leroy Thompson put the Blues back into the game with a 33-yard touchdown sprint 
around left end for the score. Knox's extra point made it 13-7. A dropped punt set up another 
State score and the hosts led lS-7 at halftime. 

Another fumble, one of six for Butler, set up the final Cardinal tally in the third period. 
The Bulldog's final score came on a pass from Dick Ahrendts to Carl Fodor, both freshmen. 
Knox missed his first extra point and the final score stood 26-13. 


Coach "Tony" Hinkle's crew climbed back into the win column with a 40-12 perform- 
ance against the visiting St. Joe Pumas. 

One of the mpSt thrilling and rarest spectacles in football opened the second half of the 
contest. Butler, already in front 26-0, kicked; tt) Bob Hamman in the end zone who roLed 
down the sideline for a 100-yard touchdown, shaking off Les Gerlach, the last obstacle, at 
the Butler 20. 

After the conversion was missed, St. Joe kicked off to the Bulldogs with Nolan Masters 
receiving it on the 18. Masters, with good blocking following Hamman's example, went 
through the St. Joe team, to rack up an 82-yard Butler score. 

Masters and Thompson both accounted for two touchdowns while single scores were 
collected by Jim Baker and John Harrell. Jim Knox booted four extra points, ,^^ 

The win boosted the season mark to 2-2. 


Butler moved into third place in the ICC with a 38-26 win over Indiana State in a 
free-scoring contest in the Bowl. 

Leroy Thompson intercepted a pass early in the game to set up Lou Caporale's touch- 
down to open the scoring. Les Gerlach smashed over from the nine, in the second period, to 
move Butler further ahead. 

State came back with a TD but Thompson followed with another Blue score. Dick 
Ahrendts threw to John Harrell for another touchdown to end the first half scoring. Thomp- 
son and end Scott Chandler added TD's in the second half to complete the Bulldog scoring 
and raise the record to 5-2. , 

{Contimted on page 100) 











The boom was lowered on Butler's hopes of repeating as conference champion with a 
stunning 39-7 setback by Valparaiso at Michigan City. 

The hard-hitting Crusaders scored twice in the first and fourth quarters and once in the 
second and third. The lone Butler touchdown came in the third period. A 52-yard run by 
Lou Caporale set up Leroy Thompson's 19-yard touchdown dash. Knox added the seventh 
and final Bulldog point. 

Three fumbles and an intercepted pass led to four of Valpo's touchdowns. Red Poppe ac- 
counted for three TD's and a conversion and Ken Schreiber tallied twice for the winners. 


Washington University of St. Louis, using a single wing attack, handed the Bulldogs 
tlicir fourth loss in seven starts with a 25-6 decision before a homecoming crowd in the Bowl. 

In the first period, Bear fullback .Mel Siegel fumbled on the Butler 16 where Leo 
Mahonev covered for the Bulldogs. Les Gerlach completed four quick passes, one to 
.Mahoncy in the end zone where interference was ruled putting the ball on the Washington 
one. Nolan Masters plunged over to give Butler a 6-0 lead. 

After a scoreless second quarter, the lead stood until the third period when the Bears 
marched 65 yards for their first score. They also turned two pass interceptions and a Butler 
fumble into scores to boost their record for the season to 5-2. 

The Bulldogs, who had picked up 103 yards rushing in the first half, were held to a -6 
total in the second while the visiting Bears rolled up 235 yards. The Blues didn't cross mid- 
field in the second half. 


With the won-lost record standing at 3-4, the Bulldogs played host to Indiana Central. 
A crowd of 5,645 was on hand to witness the contest which had received many comments 
in the local papers as a "battle of cross-town rivals." 

The determined Greyhounds surprised many fans as they fought the Butler crew to a 
scoreless half. At one time, the visitors marched to the Butler 16 before losing the ball, 
and the Bulldog's deepest penetration in the first half was to the IC 22. 

Central opened the scoring in the third quarter. Quarterback Dick Shrier sneaked over 
to climax a 72-yard march and Dick Nvers, on a fake kick play, passed to Jim Duncan for 
the seventh point. Butler came back to score on a 47-vard sprint by Nick Nardo. Tom 
Himes' PAT tied the score at 7-7. 

With time running out in the final period, Butler's Norm Wilson intercepted a Shrier 
pass and carried it to the Butler 48. A pair of passes from Dick Ahrendts to Dan Lehane 
pushed the ball to Central's 12. Two more carries by Leroy Thompson moved it down to 
the IC one where freshman Bob Maxey carried it over for the deciding score. 

I The loss ended Central's season at 6-3 and gave Butler a 4-4 mark going into the final 

^week of play. 


Butler closed the season against Western Reserve at Cleveland with a 13-13 deadlock. 

The visiting Bulldogs scored first with Leroy Thompson spinning over from the five 
after he had intercepted a Reserve pass to set up the play. The TD came in the second 
quarter, following a scoreless opening period, and jim Knox's conversion made it 7-0. 

The hosts tallied near the end of the first half on an 84-yard drive. A pass from Dan 
Kramer to Mick McCoy accounted for the touchdown with Bob Blatchford adding the 
tieing seventh point. 

The Cats moved ahead in the third quarter with Candy Carroll scoring on an end sweep. 
Blatchford's conversion attempt missed and it was 13-7. 

The final Bulldog score came near the end of the third quarter and climaxed a 69-yard 
march. Thompson scored again, this rime from the Reserve three to knot the count. Runs by 
Thompson, Gerlach, and a Gerlach to Masters pass set up the final TD. Butler missed the 
try for the fourteenth point and the score stood at 13-13. 

After a scoreless final period, the Bulldogs came home with a final season record of 4-4-1.

Young Bulldogs Post 10" 14 Record 

The 1954-55 Butler Bulldog squad was made up mostly 
of underclassmen with center Don HoUoway being the 
only senior to see regular action. Three freshmen — 
Wally Cox, Bobby Plump and Ted Guzek — were 
starters most of the season and finished first, fourth, and 
sixth respectively in scoring. 

In addition to being high scorer, Cox's 254 points set 
a new freshman record, passmg Keith Greve's old mark 
of 215. Cox is a graduate of Indianapolis Broad Ripple 
where, in his senior year, he was the city's top scorer. 

Plump, who was Indiana's "Mr. Basketball" during 
his senior year with Milan's 1954 State Champs, saw 
action in only 15 of the 24 games due to illness and 
an injured ankle. His 12.6 average for the 15 tilts put 
him at the top of the .squad in average points per game 
and his 28-point performance against DePauw was the 
top Bulldog single performance. 

Holloway, who sat out the first two games waiting 
for a conference ruling on eligibilit\', was named as the 
team's most valuable player at the annual basketball 
banquet. Don was the team captain, top rebounder, 
second leading scorer, and, on the whole, a steadying 
factor for the young squad. 

A pair of juniors, Joe Ditmire and Mark Peterman, 
were frequent starters and added greatly to the ball 
club. Ditmire, fifth in scoring, finished strong with 27 
points against Valparaiso in the ncxt-to-last game. Peter- 
man was a good rebounder and was the top man in the 
Bulldog's 72-59 win over Indiana State at Terre Haute 
with 22 points. 

Dave Scheetz, a returning letterman from the '53-54 
team, was one of the steadiest men on the club and 
could be counted on for a good job every game. He 
averaged 9.2 points and finished third in scoring. 

In the Indiana Collegiate Conference, the Hinklemen 
finished with an 8-4 mark. Evansville, who split with 
Butler in two games, won the loop title. The rest of the 
Bulldog schedule was made up of Big Ten competition 
along with Notre Dame and Wabash. 

Varsity letters, awarded at the banquet, went to 
HoUoway, Ditmire, Peterman, Plump, Cox, Scheetz, 
Guzek, Henry Foster, Jack Frayman, and Beryl Kouns. 
Service awards were presented to Bill Frohliger, Phil 
Jung, Ray Riley, Ray Baldoni, and Leon Redenbacher.

Athletic competition is a vital part 
of college life even though there are 
only a limited number of positions 
open on the varsity teams. To give the 
experience of sports to the rest of the 
student body, the men's and women's 
intramural programs \\'ere set up. 

Directing the men's program is 
Frank "Pop" Hedden who is also head 
coach of the tennis team. The Butler 
organizations go all-out in the nine 
sports in order to try and capture the 
lari^e lAI Trophy which is presented 
at the end of the school year to the 
organization accumulating the most 
total points based on all sports. 

Included on the men's program are 
touch football, tennis, basketball, vol- 
ley ball, golf, swimming, track, table iOv 

tennis, and Softball. " -NJ' 

The women's sports are under the 
leadership of the VVRA Sports Coun- 
cil. Each girl on the council is in 
charge of one sport and the vice 
president of the WRA is chairman of 
the program. June Uphaus headed the 
program this year and Miss Barbara 
Drinkwater was the faculty sponsor. 

The program for the girls is just as 
wide-spread as the men's, consisting 
of field hocky, basketball, volley ball, 
Softball, badminton, tennis, table 
tennis, swimming, and archey.

Half-way between the second and third floors of 
Atherton Center, is the DRIFT Office, known to the staff 
as our home away from home. Tliere were times when 
we almost had to trade it in for a padded cell . . . 
when important pictures were lost . . . when a deadline 
wasn't met . . . when blank sheets of paper were staring 
us in the face, and the proper words just wouldn't 
come . . . when the camera didn't work as it should. 

Bob Beggs, photographer, emerged occasionally from 
the darkroom to see if Roosevelt was still President — 
It's not that he had been in there for a long time, it's 
just that he couldn't get used to trading in his leopard 
skin for clothes. Susie Lucas, art editor, spent many 
hours bent over her drawing board, and Carolyn Wil- 
son, faculty editor, and Sunny Orbison, activities editor, 
scheduled pictures, wrote copy, and added their part to 
the confusion which was in the Office. Joyce Cripe 
assisted Carolyn, and Helen Foster and Carolyn Green 
helped Sunny with their sections of the DRIFT. 

Ann Kohlmeyer and Jim Johnson, co-editors, cracked 
the whip over the staff, while Bill Lee, business manager, 
worried over the bills and balanced the books. Dr. 
Howard G. Baetzhold, faculty advisor, kept an eye on 
the staff. 

The staff \\as especially proud of the new darkroom, 
which adjoined the DRIFT office. Out of these two 
rooms came sounds of the editors beating their heads 
against the walls, the photographer exercising his weird 
sense of humor in practical jokes, the business manager 
pleading with the staff to keep the bills down, and the 
staff tearing their hair, as the deadline neared. 

But in addition to these things, the 1955 Centennial 
DRIFT also emerged. To paraphrase George Gobel, "So 
there you are, and here's the book."

They threw editorial brick-bats and bou-

kept the students informed about the latest 
panipus happenings.

Freshman Camp 

To give the incoming freshmen a taste of college life— and 
also to provide them with a little fun— is the purpose of the 
Freshman Camp. The Camp, sponsored each year bv the YiM- 
YWCA, is held on Labor I)av week end at AlcCormick's Creek 
State Park. 

Speakers and discussion groups add a few serious moments 
to a week end crowded with fun and orientation. The freshmen 
learn about Butler activities and scholastic achievements, and 
are given a chance to find the answers to their many questions 
concerning college life. 

This year, Judy Woolgar and Bill Davis were co-chairmen 
of this ev^ent which combined business with pleasure. A treasure 
hunt, a square dance, song-fests, and mixers were all on the 
agenda during that crowded week end. 


Freshman Mixer 
and Pep Rally 

Not only were the freshmen really "mixing 
it up" at the Freshman Mixer, but the upper- 
classmen did their fair share. The "older" men 
stopped in to look over this year's young 
"crop," and the girls stopped in to view their 
future competition. 

Pert Donna Cheshire, a Pi Phi pledge from 
Indianapolis, and Rick Shahovskoy, a Kappa 
Sig pledge from Cahfornia, won the titles 
of Typical Freshman Grirl and Typical Fresh- 
man Boy. 

The Freshman Mixer is sponsored annually 
by the YM-YWCA. This year. Bill Lee and 
Judy Rinehart filled the posts of co-chairmen 
for the event. 

Shortly after being introduced to the social 
life at Butler, the boys living in the Men's 
Residence Hall were treated to a rousing pep 
session — complete with Dixieland music — 
where they were able to learn the Butler yells. 



On the Tuesday following Labor Dav, confusion and chaos 
become the rule rather than the exception, ^\'e all agree that 
Rush Week could not have a more appropriate caption. 

No one has ever decided w hcther the rushees or the actives 
suffer m{)re during Rush Week. The girl candidates spend the 
first day of the week visiting every sorority on campus. And each 
sorority on campus feels that it is its duty to bestow upon each 
rushee a delightful confection to help tide her over until dinner 
time. Se\en of these fluffy concoctions, and the rushees aren't 
exactly looking forward to dinner — Ever! 

The rest of the week is spent in calling at the various houses 
during the mornings, and gossiping about the mornings during 

the afternoons. The actives clean up the house, prepare for js 
next day, and end their day with a "hash" session in the pro':- 
bial "smoke-filled room." } 

At sometime during the week, each organization tosseste 
elaborate a party as the budget will allow, and puts out t|ii 
biggest welcome mat, while the rushees nervously await ;it 
appointed time for their entrance. | 

The fraternities choose to make their rush in more formal, jic 
entertain their rushees by inviting them over to Smokers, ft 
fancy dishes — just cokes and pretzels, and good old-fashiccc 
mantalk — will be found at these parties "For Men Only." i

First Daze 


After the activities devoted to freshman orientation and 
rushing, Butler's regular academic year swung into high gear 
with all students scrambling for satisfactory schedules. Pink 
cards . . . blue cards . . . white cards . . . yellow cards . . . 
We signed our names on all of them. We wrote our names 
and addresses twelve different times — for the Dean of Men, 
the Dean of Women, the Registrar and Bursar, the Blue Book 
editors, the Religious Council, and a half-dozen others — they 
all wanted to know. 

We walked from one table to another in a state of dazed 
confusion, and tried to keep our class schedules straight. There 
was no more discouraging a sight than a professor sadly 
shaking his head while he murmured, "I'm sorry, that class is 
full. You'll have to take it at another time." Then, we tried 
to rearrange our classes, an operation which is easier said 
than done. 

After spending several weary hours walking from one table 
to another — and then back to the first one . . . we finally 
made our v^ay past the booths selling Drifts, memberships, 
and tickets, posed wearily for our I.D. picture, and staggered 
out the door to freedom. 

The next stop on our Registration Day itinerary was the 
bookstore. We complained about the prices, and groaned about 
the weight of the text-books. But finally, registration was 
completed; and We were ready to begin a new semester. 


No sooner had we completed registra- 
tion it seemed, than mid-terms were 
upon us. And we had scarcely recovered 
from them, when it was time for that 
necessary evil — Finals! We campaigned 
vigorously for a reading day, but our 
attempts were unsuccessful. As the day 
of reckoning approached, the library 
attendance increased, and the number of 
bridge players in the C-Club dwindled. 

We groaned about the amount of read- 
ing that we must review . . . frantically 
searched for missing notes . . . wistfully 
wished that we had gone to class a 
couple of more times instead of playing 
that extra hand of bridge . . . and finally 
began to study with a feverish haste. 

Somehow, we lived through that week, 
and managed to pass our finals — or most 
of them. When they were all over and 
we could once again call our time our 
own, we dashed through our fa\oritc 
door — the one that leads to the C-Club. 


WRA Splash Party \ 


One of the first social events to appear on the 
school calendar this year was an all-School 
Splash Party. Sponsored by the Women's Recre- 
ational Association it was held on a Wednesday 
night after fraternity and sorority meetings. 

We had a chance to join the fun, both at the 
various game booths and in the pool. Fancy 
diving, games of \\ ater-tag and follo\\-the-leader, 
and just plain dogpaddling were in evidence that 
night, when we freely admitted that we \\ere 
"all wet." 


Square Dance 

"Dive for the oyster, and dig for the clam!" "Swing your 
partners, and do-si-do!" Between laughing at the confused 
attempts of others to keep with the music and trying to prome- 
nade back to our own places in time, we were constantly gasping 
for breath. 

We were swung from one partner to another until the caller 
brought the dance to a halt, and we collapsed momentarily into 
the nearest chair. 

A Witch and a Scarecrow were crowned at this dance, 
which is sponsored annually by WRA. This year Joan Leslie, 
Pi' Phi, received the title of Witch, while Charlie Marks, of the 
Men's Dorm, was named Scarecrow. Judy Woolgar, WRA 
president, announced the winners. 

Those lucky enough to have their names drawn, were 
awarded door-prizes donated by the Atherton Center Bookstore. 




Early INovember saw us with little else on our minds but Homecoming. 
We bravely faced problems concerning the hurried last-minute prepara- 
tions for our Homecoming floats. We stomped our feet to keep warm 
. . . fled for shelter when it started to rain . . . and tried our best to 
keep our eye-lids from drooping. But the next day — when we paraded 
with our floats through downtown Indianapolis — we were proud of our 
handiwork, and the worries and complaints of the night before were 

Especially proud were the members of Delta Delta Delta who carried 
home the first place trophy in the girls' division for their float bearing the 
slogan, "Butler Fiddles While Washington Burns." The Sigma Chi's also 
stepped into the winner's circle to claim the first place trophy in the 
boys' division for their float with the theme, "We'll Get the Jump on 
the Bears." 

The freshmen girls were glad to share in the doffing of their green 
beanies, e\en though they were out-classed by the sophomores in the tug 
of war. The freshmen were jubilant on this day, for they would no 
longer have to worry about their ever-present green beanies — by virture 
of the freshmen boys' win over the sophomores in the greased pole fight. 
The greased pole encounter was a fight to the finish, as the freshmen sent 
in three waves of fresh troops against the weary, but determined sopho- 
mores. The small band defending the pole held their own until the last 
few moments. 

We returned home from the Parade just in time for a quick bite of 
supper before lighting our torches and joining the Torchhght Procession. 

"We'll sing the Butler War-Song," was the roar as we made our way 
towards the huge bonfire where the Washington Bears were burned in effigv 
We applauded the team . . . joined the cheerleaders in that time-honored 
yell "BU-LL-DO-GS" . . . were inspired with pep by Butler's most en- 
thusiastic supporter. Chuck Henzie . . . and listened to Coach Tony Hinkle 
praise the team. 

Then back to our respective houses we went to spend the rest of the 
night in preparing our house decorations. 

"Where are the other green napkins — I've got to 'stuff' the rest of this 
side of the float." "Would someone PLEASE try to find the scissors and the 
cardboard!" These were our woeful cries as the wee hours of the morn- 
ing approached. 

Suddenly, the house decorations were finished, and we anxiously waited 
the arrival of the judges. All these hours of work and toil were well worth 
it to the members of Alpha Chi Omega, as they were announced the winners 
in the girl's division of the first place trophy, with their slogan of "Let's Give 
'Em the Double Shuffle." 

The Kappa Sigmas also came in for their share of praise as they stepped 
forward to receive the first place award in the boy's division, with their 
theme, "Sno' Secret What Washington Couldn't Bear. " 


Lovely Sara Spradling, Kappa Alpha Theta, ruled 
as this year's Homecoming Queen. She was first 
crowned informally in the C-Club, soon after the 
election results were announced. 

Sara began her official duties at the Float Parade, 
and then presided over the Homecoming game. Her 
reign was ended at the Dance, Saturday evening. 
Paula Baumgartner, last year's Homecoming Queen, 
crowned Queen Sara after Sara and her Court had 
been introduced to the audience. 

Members of the Court included Martha Butter- 
worth, Pi Beta Phi; Pat Morgan, Independent; Carol 
Manwaring, Zeta Tau Alpha; Nancy Roberts, Delta 
Gamma; Martha Sherman, Delta Delta Delta; Sue 
Clyne, Kappa Kappa Gamma; Kathryn Winnefeld, 
BISA; and Darlene Ritchey, Trianon.

Butler Plays 
Host To 

Several famous personalities visited 
Butler this year, much to the delight 
of the students. President Eisenhower 
made an appearance at the Fieidhouse 
in October, giving a speech about the 
farm program. The Butler Young 
Republicans organized to give Ike a 
rousing welcome. 

\'an Johnson stopped in Naptown 
for a personal appearance, and ten 
iuckv Butler girls \\ ere invited to help 
\'an ^\•ith his act. This occasion was 
the premiere of "The Last Time I 
Saw Paris." 

\'ice-president Nixon also gave an 
address at the Butler Fieidhouse, when 
he was in Indianapolis for the dedica- 
tion of the Community Hospital. 

Last year, Dean .Martin and Jerr\'

It seemed to us as if Christmas vacation would never 
come — Then suddenly, the holidays were upon us. 
We rushed around doing last minute Christmas shop- 
ping . . . braved the wintry winds to carol ... and 
counted the days until vacation would arrive. 

The annual Christmas Convocation was held on the 
last day of school. The Jordan Ballet again added 
their talents to those of the Choir to make this one 
of the most impressive convocations of the vear. 

Blue Kev gave the school a permanent Christmas 
tree which thev planted outside Atherton Center. At 
the tree-lighting ceremony sponsored by the Phi 
Kappas, the lights on this tree ^\•ere officially turned 
on by Dean Burdin. The crowd was treated to the 
music of a choral group made up of the song leaders 
of each sorority, and even Santa Claus paid a visit 
on this festive occasion. 


Almost any time of day, we could walk into the 
C-Club and find a group of our cohorts playing 
bridge, grabbing a quick bite to eat, holding a 
gab session, or even trying to study. 

A typical C-Club day might go as follows: As 
the hour strikes, a new group of students move 
in to take the place of those who must hurry off 
to class. At ten after, a straggler walks in looking 
for his "group." If lie can't find them, he sud- 
denly becomes aware that he is standing while 
everyone else is sitting — and that he is sitting alone 
while everyone is talking. 


For against the background of the current 
fa\orite on the juke-box, we hear the flow of 
conversation surge about us — The party boys talk 
about last night's "blast" . . . the intellectuals 
speak of loftier subjects . . . the couples whisper 
sweet nothings . . . the "Big Wheels" plan their 
next campus project . . . and the girls punctuate 
their gossip with the word "boy," while the word 
"girl" frequently pops up in the boys' conver- 


Less formal co-cd functions are 
held, too, such as this impromptu 
snow-ball fight. 


Chatter, stunts, and dinners are ex- 
changed as the fraternities and sorori- 
ties get together at their annual ex- 
change dinners. 

Pledges are officially introduced to 
friends and students of Butler Uni- 
versity at the Fall open-houses. 

Fun, Fads and 



Along with the three R's, we talked about the three 
F's too — Fun, Fads, and Fashions. George "And 
there you are" Gobel made TV fame over-night as 
his slow and easy-going drawl, and his clever remarks 
were imitated by evervone — especially college students. 
His famous remark, "And you can't hardly get them 
no more," could be heard in almost every conversation. 
We listened to the usual number of hit songs, and 
we especially liked the quartet recordings. The 
McGuire Sisters, the Dejohn Sisters, the Chordettes, the 
Four Freshmen, the Crew-Cuts, and a host of others 
caught our attention. It was rumored that any group 
which sang a song with intelligent \xords was kicked 
out of the business! Such classics as "Sh-h-h-h-boom," 
"Opp-Shoop," and "Shake, Rattle, and Roll," hit 
the stands and made their way onto the Hit Parade. 
We played bridge incessantly and dreamed of holding 
the perfect bridge hand . . . but we sometimes wondered 
if we would kno\^' how to bid it. Knee socks proved 
that they were here to stay as more and more girls 
began wearing them to class. The men broke into 
the fashion world as they began sporting Bermuda 
shorts. The masculine leg, complete with muscle and 
knobby knees, was uncovered in public. As usual, the 
girls followed the fashions of the year . . . the 
H-Line, first introduced by Dior, was met by cat-calls 
from the male population and by approval from the 
girls . . . Smoking pipes, another pastime for the girls, 
was objected to by the boys on the grounds that the 
girls were taking over a heretofore strictly masculine 
realm . . . And once again, long hair became the style 
as the female half of the student body anxiously 
waited for their shorn locks of last year to grow- 
out again. 

The Alambo craze hit the campus, and 
although not many of us knew just how 
the steps went, we all tried. 


Over and over again, we heard tlie evils of the caucus 
system being debated, but we finally decided that it was 
here to stay. When election times came near, cam- 
paigning reached a feverish peak as caucus members 
tried to pull the votes in for their candidates. 

The pledges made posters . . . the candidates shook 
hands heartily . . . and the Student Council watched 
over the polls. Streamers, favors, and pictures were 
passed out in attempts to sway the voters. When the 
final votes were counted, it was found that the "Little 
Caucu.s" had taken more than their share of the offices 
and queenships. 



Practicing until the wee hours, fitting our 
costumes, and learning the words to new 
songs — all these went into producing a 
Geneva Stunts act. 

On March 1 1, we were ready to present 
our act to the public. On that night, all of 
us struggled into our costumes . . . put on 
our make-up . . . experienced bad cases 
of "nerves" . . . and agreed that there was 
"no business like show business." 

At the end of the evening, the Theta's 
were announced the winners in the sorority 
division with their act, "Navy Blue." The 
Sigma Chi's emerged victorious, too, with 
their act, "Best of Broadway." 


So you got pinned 

Is it all worth it? 


Why doesn't she hurry? 



"The weaker sex is stronger than the stronger sex 
because of the stronger sex's weakness for the weaker 
sex." And every year this weakness is proven by the 
number of fraternity pins that change hands. 

One by one, we watched our friends join the ranks 
of those "pinned." The subject of "pinning" was 
discussed and debated, but regardless of the outcome 
of the argument, we agreed that it had become one 
of Butler's favorite traditions. 

Some pinnings lasted only a few days; some would 
last a life-time. But in any case, the sparkle of the 
pin could not match the sparkle in the eyes of the 
couple involved. 




Once a year the tables are turned and the girls treat the 
boys to an evening of fun and festivity. The girls not only 
foot the bills and make corsages for their dates, but they also 
hold the chairs for them, light their cigarettes, provide the 
transportation, and take care of the other social details which 
are normally the duty of the men. 

We all decided that one night of turn-about was fun, but 
we wouldn't want to make this situation a habit. At the end 
of the evening, the girls ruefully surveyed their flat pocket- 
books, and the boys had the pleasure of exclaiming, "Now, 
you know what it's like."

In 1 87 1, 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.

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?
