Old Man Winter forsook the 
Purple liills durlnK last weekend's 
Winter Carnival, but In spite of 
11 steady, icy downpour which 
drenched the campus and can- 
celled skllnK plans, Eph revelers, 
with or without dates, refused to 
have their spirits dampened. 

Friday nlBht the feature at- 
traction was the WOC sponsored 
dance held in Lasell Gymnasium, 
where Lester Lanin and his or- 
chestra once again provided a 
pleasing mixture of fast and slow 
rhythm for the assembled couples. 
For those of a more athletic 
nature, square dancing In the small 
gym provided an ample oppor- 
tunity to work off excess energy. 

Queen Crowned 

During the intermission the 
DVilUams Octet presented a group 
of songs including special selec- 
tions by the newly-formed quar- 
tet of John McDermott and Pete 
McKlnney '53, and Jim Rice and 
John Stone '51. A keg of beer 
was presented to the Phi Delt for having the best snow 
sculpture, a noteworthy accom 
pllshment in de-winlerlzed BiU- 

The climax of the evening came 
with the coronation of the Car- 
nival Queen, chosen by Dean 
Brooks and faculty members 
Ludwig and Stoddard. The Sigma 
Pill candidate, Betty Ann Wheeler, 
was chosen as the paragon of 
houseparty dates and reigned for 
iht weekend. 

I House Festivities 

Saturday afternoon, after 
watching the ups and down of 
various Purple teams, party-bound 
Ephs and their dates congregated 
at the social uniUs for cocktail 
parties. Long into the night the 
baccanalo continued, centered 
around dances held at Beta Theta 
Pi, Chi, Phi Delta Theta, Saint 
Anthony Hall, Theta Delta Chi, 
and Zeta Psi. 

Sunday morning the tried and 
true remedy for tired bodies and 
drooping spirits, the milk punch 
party, came into its own. Harry 
Hart, popular trumpeter and vet- 
eran of many houseparties, played 
through the afternoon at the 
Deke house.

decorations amounting to $56 for 
which the Outing Club is finan- 
cially responsible to Trahan's Dec-

At the same time the presidents 
of Phi Sigma Kappa and Phi 
Gamma Delta announced that 
their house flags which were on 
display over Alumni Weekend had 
been borrowed that Saturday 
night, and they i-equested their 
return as soon as possible 

Spring Conferences 

Dean Brooks revealed that his 
ufflce had received invitations 
from Princeton and Mlddlebury 
for local representatives at their 
annual spring conferences com- 
ing up soon. The UC decided to 
expend those invitations to the 
undergiaduaie body, under the 
conditions that the UC would 
sponsor the representatives but 
would not finance their trip.

Barber - Adkins Team 
Reaches Seuii-Finals 

Vincent M. Barnett, David A. 
Wells Professor of Political Science 
arrived in Paris last week en route 
to Rome where he will join the 
United States Embassy. His new 
post is twofold for he will serve 
as both economic counselor to the 
Kmbassy and assistant chief of the 
-ECA in Italy. 

Professor Barnett returned to 
Williams only this fall after two 
years with the ECA in Rome in 
an advisory and Embassy llason 
capacity and had not expected to 
return to Italy. However, the 
present emergency forced him to 
accept this new offer. He hopes to 
be able to return to the college if 
and when world conditions are 
once again settled and the national 
emergency in this country removed. 

Aid Coordinator 

As top executive officer in the 
Embassy and chief of its economic 
section, Barnett will be assisted 
by 15 or 20 foreign service of- 

Since Professor Barnett will also 
be serving as assistant chief of 
ECA program coordination, his 
functions overlap. The substance 
of the combined positions involves 
the coordination of all aid pro- 
grams in Italy; direct military 
aid, assistance In the expansion of 
her own military production, con- 
tinued economic recovery help 
from ECA, and Point Four aid. 
The basic task is the working out 
of a balance between making Italy 
useful in the defense of Western 
Europe by urging her to undertake 
armament production and at the 
same time not harming the prog- 
ress of her internal recovery. 

Professor Barnett will be faced 
with the problem of making Italy 
strong enough to resist Commu- j 
nism militarily without conse- 
quently weakening her internally 
and leaving her open to the second 
prong of the Red threat which 
prays upon poverty and chaos. 

Professor Barnett stated that he 
hoped to bring his family to 
Europe in June. He extended an 
invitation to all Williams pro- 
fessors on leave and any students 
that might be in Italy to visit

\Ephs Arffue for New 
World Organization 

By a unanimous vote last week, 
members of Campus Business 
Management decided to continue 
the organization's activities for 
at least one more term. In Jime 
the houses affiliated will cast their 
ballots again to determine con- 
tinuance of its existence. 

According to Prank R. Thoms, 
head of CBM, the reason for the 
term basis of the activity lies in 
the serious world situation. If war 
begins, Thoms explained, many 
houses will go out of business, 
and the need for CBM will end. 

CBM Savings to Houses 

Fourteen houses on the Wil- 
liams campus participate In CBM. 
Delta Kappa Epsllon and Phi 
Gamma Delta fraternities remain 
the only two which do not take 
part in Its operations. 

In a report recently Issued by 
the CBM office, the directors 
showed that each social unit with 
CBM saves approximately $276 
per semester on purchases and 
auditing services. Subtracting the 
sum of $125 as an assessment for 
each house per term, this rep- 
,iesents a total saving in a se- 
mester for the individual social 
unit of $150. 

In the third set in the elim- 
inations on the WMS Interfra- 
ternity Quiz, the Sigma Phi team, 
of Laird Barber '52 and Tom Ad- 
kins '52, defeated the Zeta Psi 
team of Ned Stebblns '51 and Ted 
Curtis '51 by a close score of 43-41. 

Just before the Williams ques- 
tion worth five points, the Zetes 
were ahead by a three point mar- 
gin, Laird Barber gave the correct 
answer to the question asking for 
the full name of the room in the 
Stetson Library in which the daily 
newspapers were on display. Bar- 
ber's answer, the Hamilton Wright 
Mabie room, gave the Bigs five 
points and the score was reversed 
to give a 43-41 victory to the Sigs 

Due to the fact that the station 
was off the air during hell week, 
the Phi Slg-Phi Gam match 
scheduled for last Tuesday was 
postponed until last Thursday. 
The Sig Phi team will meet the 
winner of the Phi Slg-Phi Gam 
contest sometime in early March. 

The Alpha Delts will meet the 
Delta Phis In another semi-final 
battle, and the winner of that 
match will face the winner of the 
Sig Phi-Phi Gam-Phi Sig trio in 
the finals in March. 

'The Importance of Being Earnest' 
Lauded as Spirited Comedy; Critic 
Praises^Cast, Direction, Costumes 

by Joseph P. McElroy 

For a few delightful hours last weekend the shadow of Oscar 
Wilde hovered impishly over the local theatre, dispensing wit, 
fantastic farce, and the flavor of an extravagant and charming decade. 
The 1890's in English tea-cup society were an antic film of aphoristic 
patter, played by polished dandies across a screen of triviality. It 
is of this artificial brilliance that the supreme dandy's chef-d'oeuvre 
is fashioned. Oscar Wilde's "The Importance of Being Earnest" 
stands in the glittei-ing tradition of Restoration comedy of manners; 
its sheer virtuosity and impeccable construction make it, after more 
than half a century, still the untouchable modem masterpiece of the 
drawing-room genre.

Inc., at the Adams Memorial 

The Roxbury Latin School's 
debating team edged the Adelphic 
Union Friday nighl in a debate 
included among the various fes- 
tivities of Houseparty Weekend. 

The debate centered upon the 
question, "Resolved: That the non nation;; ai-.ti'^ wor'.i 
.should form a new international 

Argue .'Affirmative 

Charles Telly '54, Louis Haeberle 
'54. and Herbert Reis '54, repre- 
senting the Adelphic Union, argued 
the affirmative side of the question 
with Reis citing the failure of the 
UN, Haeberle presenting the re 
buttal to Roxbury's opening argu 
ment, and Telly proposing a plan 
for a new international body. 

However, Roxbury's threesome, 
Jim Dwaine, Pflul.i Beatty, and 
John Wilbem. won the judge's 
decision by defending the UN and 
pointing out the lack of time nee- 
essary to form a new organization.

irreparable effect on thought. 

In the role of John Worthing 
I alias. Einest), Raymond Smith 
gave one of the more accom- 
plished performances seen here 
in the past few seasons. Mr. Smith 
is adept at handling the beauti- 
fully balanced phrasing and mag- 
nificent nonsense that run 
through Wilde's brittle talk; Mr. 
Smith, when partially obscured In 
Act I by a potted palm, was, for 
a few moments, the most pheno- 
mental object in sight, but it was 
his excellence in vocal Inflection 
and his subtle restraint which 
made him the outstanding figure 
on stage. Less crafty, but always 
amusing and assured, was Martin 
Conovltz, who pranoed through 
the part of Algernon Moncrieff;

than Mr. Conovltz indicated, but 
the performance was debonair and 

Theatre, Thursday, Friday, and 
Saturday, "The Importance" sus- 
tained an air of spirited high 
comedy, and Wilde's rarlfied pic- 
ture was painted adroitly. Des- 
pite a few minor lapses in the 
fragile precision of the lines, the 
cast moved sedately and know- 
ingly through this priceless, if 
meaningless, tour-de-force. Wil- 
liam Martin directed the play 
with a cunning, light touch, and 
Wilde's outrageous dialogue and 
infinitely contrived situation were 
rendered skillfully. 

Mistaken Identity 

The plot revolves about the 
machinations of two young gen- 
tlemen intent principally on en- 
snaring a brace of extremely 
sophisticated young ladles. After

Professor Theodore Mehlin, 
second speaker at the weekly Fac- 
ulty Lecture Series, discussed the 
subject "Surveying the Universe" 
In the chemistry lab Thursday 

"Many people." said Professor 
Mehlin. "do not realize the im- 
mense distances of the universe

star.s [hat has been traveling for 
millions of years towards the earth 
at 186.000 miles a second has not 
yet reached half way to the earth," 

An Expanding Universe 

Measuring such distances can 
not be done directly, according to 
Professor Mehlin, and therefore 
relative positions of two masses to 
one another are measured Instead. 
By using two telescopes and tak- 
ing measurements six months a- 
part, the mass and distance can 
be found with a fair degree of 
accuracy. Another method, using 
the amount and color of hght giv- 
en off by a star, has shown that 
all the galaxies are moving rapid- 
ly away from the earth.

Under New Management 

With this issue the RECORD passes under new management. 
Perhaps our readers have aheady discovered certain symptoms of 
inexperience, but we pray that they will overlook our first faltering 
steps and bear with us until we can stand alone. We have a lot to 
learn and much of it we shall probably learn the hard way; but we 
have accepted the responsibility tor putting out this paper and al- 
though we shall undoubtedly make mistakes and be brought to task 
for them, we realize that that is part of the Job and part of the fun. 

For some time to come we shall look to the work of the retiring 
editorial board for guidance and inspiration. Nor do we mind saying, 
here and now, that we feel that the oud board did a splendid job 
during its term. We may not have always agreed with the particular 
stands that our predecessors took on certain issues, but they made 
us take a good look at ourselves on the Williams campus and realize 
that perhaps everything was not In tiie apple pie order that some 
would like us to believe. They helped to make us see ourselves for 
what we really are. and they made us think a little. 

Now we are not a group of "reformers", an organization of axe- 
wlelding crusaders. We don't know just what the problems are on 
the campus, and we certainly haven't got a formula for the solutions. 
But we do know when we don't like the looks of something, and we 
are going to say so. Perhaps this is impudence on our part, but we 
feel that many good things would never have been accomplished 
unless someone had acted a little boldly. At least, we are not going to 
hesitate to lead with our right for fear that it will give someone a 
crack at our jaw. 

We could just publish a bi-weekly resume of events. But that 
wouldn't be much fun, and it would be letting down both the old 
board and our readers. We are not setting out to prove anything. 
but we would hate to see people say "so what" about every issue of 
the RECORD. In view of the present world situation, there are 
bound to be a lot of questions coming up to which Williams College 
must find the answers. We think it will be fun to be around when 
they are answering those questions.

Letters to the Editor 

Stronger Garfield Club 

To the Editor of the Williams RECORD: 

Now that the Sterling Committee has decided against taking any 
action on the revision of the social system, we should not be resigned 
to the fact that some improvement cannot be made. 

The focal point of the social problem here is to integrate the men 
of the Garfield Club into student activities, and therefore make tlie 
student body more homogeneous, if this were accomplished it would 
have a manifold effect on the entire campus. First, men who have 
seemingly been rejected by the majority of students would become 
interested in extra-curricular activities and, therefore, would realize 
that they are not outcasts of the Williams society, but that they are 
just as much a part of this society as any other student. 

Secondly, there are many extra-curricular activities on campus 
that could very well use the talents and enthusiasm of the men of 
the Garfield Club. We all realize that thei-e is much unused talent 
that should not be wasted. Therefore, I feel that if leaders of the 
campus made a conscientious effort, the campus would notice a 
marked improvement in many of the activities. 

Also, if members of the Garfield Club desired to get into a 
fraternity, they could acquaint themselves with members of the 
fraternities through association with them in the various extra- 
curricular activities. It is very po.ssible that this would, in turn, in- 
crease the prestige of the Club. 

I have discussed several possible results of a closer relationship 
of all students on campus. However, this is impossible if we don't, on i 
our own initiative, talk to these men and show them that we can use 
them and their talents in student activities. This is the point of this 
letter. I feel that if student leaders would personally seek talented 
men out and ask them to join various student organizations the 
problem of men feeling they are not wanted would be solved.

Before an overflow houseparty

recorded a 40-35 victory over Bow-

Pool. The only double winner for

took the 220 and 440 yard free-

Although Bowdoln gained an 
early lead, Williams rallied when 
Dick Martin edged his opponent 
in the 100 yard freestyle. This 
proved to be the turning point of 
the meet. 

Martin Disqualified 
Dave Byerly, Rick Jeffrey, and 
John Belash combined to give 
Williams the opening 300 yard 
medley relay. Jones and Joe 
Worthington garnered six points 
in the 220 yard freestyle putting 
the Purple ahead by an eight 
point margin. 

Three questionable false starts 
disqualified Martin in the 50 yard 
freestyle, and Bowdoln moved to • 
within one point of the Ephs who 
could only register a third. The 
Polar Bears then took a short- 
lived lead when Boyle out classed 
Al Post in the diving.

Martin's convincing time of

The Purple went ahead by one

when Bowdoin's McGrath trium- 
phed over Byerly in the 200 yard , 

Williams rebounded to win both 
the 200 yard breaststroke and the

Quarantine Is 
Farty JSemesis 

Woe and consternation filled the 
hearts of numerous Williams men 
this past weekend when last-min- 
ute "axes" shattered dreams of a 
few glorious days to be spent with 
a bottle in one arm and a woman 
ill another. 

But of the many truthful and 
untruthful reasons rendered for 
breaking houseparty dates, none 
was so unique as the bona fide 
excuse of seven lassies from Ben- 
nett Junior College. The alibi; 
Their school was quarantined. 
Korty Flu Oases 

The ban was impo.sed after a 
flu epidemic swept tlie college, in- 
flicting forty girls with the con- 
tagious malady. In an effort to 
curb the spread of the disease, the I 
authorities decided to place the 
entire college under quarantine. 

This step doubtless will be con- 
doned by .some as a wise and 
necessary move. Nevertheless, 
there are now seven more men 
who can testify to the manner in 
which medical science's coldly cal- 
culating quest for improved health 
conditions can cause incalculable 
amounts of human hurt and mis-

Rest in Peace 

For all intents and purposes, total rushing, guaranteed member- 
ship, call it what you may, is dead and buried. For our money the 
funeral was a little too hasty, as the corpse was still warm when 
it was interred. Although the Stenmg Committee will meet again 
and final statements and minority opinions have yet to be drafted, 
total rushing rests in the graveyard where a lot of people wanted 
it all along. 

Perhaps it was Just not the time to launch such a program. 
Student enthusiasm for the plan, which hit its peak during the fall, 
dropped significantly during the last vote. One explanation for this 
may be that many students changed their minds. But certainly 
part of the shift in attitude accurred because you simply cannot keep 
interest sustained in any issue over such a long period of time, es- 
pecially when all the undergraduate attention is focused upon the 
government's mobilization plans and its effect upon them. 

Total rushing was not shelved because social conditions on the 
campus had improved over night to the extent that basic change 
was no longer necessary. It was sacrificed for practical reasons. 
Nevertheless, the Sterling Committee gave the problem a good airing 
and made a real and substantial start toward improving the status 
quo. Now the next job is for everyone of us to get behind the pro 
gram and make the most of it. 

Meanwhile, those friends of tlie fraternities who fouglit against 
total rushing had better beware lest their efforts now work against 
them. In conjimction with total rushing, freshman segregation was 
beneficial to the college and harmless to fraternities. Without total 
rushing, freshman segregation opens the door to communal eating 
and deferred rushing. Total rushing may be a dead duck, but it 
may yet reach out from the grave and make them rue the day who 
did it in.

To the Editor of the Williams RECORD: 

I hasten to write you of an event which I know will be of great 
Interest. I have Just received word from Paris, Finance that John 
Muldoon is dead. 

As you probably all know, at the end of last term Muldoon was 
forced to close his saloon and cease his other nefarious business 
activities. Under fire from the administration for gambling, run 
ning the international paper club (an organization of Phi Betes who 
wrote papers for Williams, Bennington, and Vassar students), the 
North Adams date bureau, selling bodies and body fluids and the 
fraternity placement bureau, as well as other activities too numerous 
to mention here, Muldoon considered withdrawing from Williams. 
This decision was further strengthened by the fact that the Wil 
hams Christian Association had labelled him the most immoral man in 
Wllhamstown and threatened to drive him off the campus. 

A Gal aud Pigalle 

In spite of all these difficulties, Muldoon probably would have 
returned, he told me, because he felt that he was fulfilling a defin- 
ite need here and aleviating many of the miseries of the students. 
However, when he was told that he would be dratted if he remained 
in the coimtry any longer — Muldoon was an Irish exchange stud- 
ent — he decided to leave the coimtry. During the mid-term recess 
I saw him up at Stowe with a beautiful divorcee, whom he met in his 
travels around the different colleges, and he told me then that they— 
he and Sheila — had decided to go to Europe where Muldoon hoped 
to find a quiet place tc settle down and perhaps finish his educa- 
tion. Being his roommate and closest friend — fwople even said we 
looked like twins — I saw him off on the Montreal flight to Laus- 
anne by way of Dublin, Lordo, and Paris. 

Since then I have received a letter from 'Mouldy" — that's 
what all his friends called him — saying that he liked Switzerland 
very much, but that he and Sheila had found it rather dull there 
after life in the States. He decided to move on to Paris for a few 
weeks' "rest", he said. 

Just today I received a cable from Sheila telling me of his 
untimely death. Apparently he had quarreled with her and they 
had parted temporarily. They had been staying at the Royal Mon- 
ceaux, Ave. Loche, but Mouldy decided to move to Pigalle. Apparently 
from what Sheila could gather, he used to frequent a little bar Just 
off Pigalle called the Moulin Rouge. This is where he was last seen 
Sunday night with two girls, one on each arm. The bartender said 
that for the last few days he was in terrible health from his dissi- 
pations, which usually started about two in the afternoon — and 
he complained constantly of his consumption. The bartender seemed 
to think that he probably died of physical exhaustion and this also 
is the opinion of the Paris gendarmarle. 

"Handsome Corpse" 

I think that Muldoon has been greatly misunderstood here on 
campus. People thought of him as a .sort of human incarnation of 
Satan ready to sell anyone or anything for a fast buck. I don't 
think that this was the case, he used to tell me that his function 
was to amuse the students and whenever he opened a new business, 
he always did it in a veiy humorous manner. It is with deep sorrow 
that I hear of his death and I know that he had mtiny friends on 
campus who also were amused by his "lecherous" activities. With 
his death Williams has lost a very colorful character. There is one 
consolation, however, he always used to say that he wanted to "live 
fast, die young, and have a handsome corpse." In conclusion, I 
would like to quote a poem of A. E. Houseman's which Mouldy 
greatly admired and which he said he would like to have Inscribed 
on his tombstone: 

Smart lad, to slip betimes away 
From fields where glory does not slay. 
And early though the laurel grows. 
It withers quicker than the rose. 

Respectfully yours, John M. Simpson '52

IC4A Draws 
Seven Ephmen 

by Ueurge M. Steinbrenner 

Just what the tenure of Couch 
Al Sliuw's contract Is here at Wil- 
liams College I do not know, but 
there Is one thlnt' that I am cer- 
luln of; there was not a single 
ulumnus or student In the over 
(low winter homecoming crowd 
which saw Williams shellack Bos 
ion College two weeks ago who 
would not add a loud "aye" to 
;iuy vote In favor of making 
Shaw's stay In WlUlamstown a 
long one, 

Since he took over duties as 
uasketball mentor here three years 
ago, the Ephmen have been stead- 
ily on the rise until they are at 
present listed as number 22 In 
National Small College defensive 
.landings. Quite an enviable rat- 
,'ig when one considers the multi- 
iide of small colleges included, 
ihlch must number high in the 

When the Ephmen dumped B.C. 
:hey were beating the No. I team 
,ri New England, a victory com 
.larable to a football win over 
Holy Cross last fall. Quite a feath- 1 
II' in the team's hat . . . 

Just for the record let me set 
\ou readers straight on the poli- 
ly which co-editor Bob Simpson 
aid I are going to apply to the 
>ports coverage for the coming 
year. It's a little ditterent from 
most college paper policies. Main- 
ly, there are no major or minor 
sports as far as we are concerned 
. . no one spoil such as football, 
uasketball, or baseball is going 
to get any more headlmes or cov- 
erage than any other sports. As 
lai' as we are concerned there are 
seventeen major sports of equal 
importance, and we are going to 
run our paper on that basis . . . 
Furthermore we are initiating a 
weekly column for full coverage of 
ilie inlra-mural sports, which have 
uflen been neglected in the past. 
Ilie .same policy will hold for the 
euverage of freshman sports.

Taking it on the chin for the

lost to Army, 6-2, Wednesday on 
the cadets spacious home rink. 

Three first period goals were 
suSicient for the West Pointers to

gravy. The Ephmen scored once

responsible for the final Williams 
score at 8;55 of the third period. 
Center Jim Harvey was also In on 
the play. 

Williams was really never in the 
game, witli Army gaining a 3-0 
edge and not allowing their op- 
ponents to come any clo.ser than 
a two goal deficit.

Outstanding Victory 
Of Brilliant Season 

Scoring its most decisive win of 
the year, the Purple squash team 
whitewashed the cadets of West 
Point in a nine match contest 
Wednesday. By virtue of this vic- 
tory the Chaffeemen assured 
themselves of second place in na- 
tional intercollegiate competition, 
bowing only to a powerful Har- 
vard team. 

Playing In warm courts and on 
the visitors' home territory, the 
Williams nine displayed its best 
form of the season. On the basis 
of the strong showing of the Ar- 
my team In earlier matches this 
year, the pre-game odds were close 
to even money. Every player met 
the challenge at the peak of his 
game, turning the contest into a 

Allen Scores Decisive Win 
Richie Allen, playing in the 
number one slot, swamped Ker- 
mit Johnson with the most bril- 
liant exhibition of the afternoon. 
Dick Squires, Rockwell Cup win- 
ner in tennis, met more opposition 
with Bob King, who extended him 
to five games. 

Roger Dickinson had no trouble 
in the number tliree position, as 
he easily disposed of Bob Snyder. 
The Black Knights were equally 
helpless on the lower rungs, with 
George MacGarrigle falling vic- 
tim to Captain Buddy Ti'eman in 
three onesided games. 

Muller Rallies in Win 
George Muller, playing five, ov- 
ercame a two game deficit to 
steal a superb victory from Ralph 
Sanders. Tom Kent, perennial vic- 
tor, earned a close decision over 
William Horn in another fine

In the bottom third of the 
match "Soapy" Symington over- 
powered Cliff Worthy in four 
games, while Pete Debevoise took

Purple Grapplers Easy Victors 
In Wesleyan Contest Saturday 

Ephmen Winners 
Despite Injuries 

by Dick Antoiun 
Displaying by far their best ef- 
fort of the season despite key In- 
juries and a patchwork lineup, 
the Purple matmen of Couches 
Ed Bullock and Harvey Potter ad-

Shorb Jr. and scintillating per- 
formances by Billy Callaghan, 
Green Carleton, Shorb Sr., and 
Pete Dellsser who decisioned 167 
lb. Jack Button, a remarkable teat 
in view of the fact that Pete was 
.stepping on the mat for the first 
time in three years and was wrest- 
ling out of his class to do so. 

Shorbs Victurious 

The Wesmens 123 lb. Dave Slme 
decisioned Aaron Katcher 6-0 and 
130 lb Bob Morrison squeaked out 
u 9-8 victory on time advantage 
over Bill Willianvs to push the 
Cardinals ahead by a 6-0 count. 

Bob Shorb twice took down 137 
lb Al Brewer of the Wesmen and 
the second time was good for the 
pin with a half-nelson and arm 
bar in 1:45 of the second period. 

Carleton Defeats Champ 

After Paul Shorb decisioned Vic 
Krasnansky, last year's Fie.shman 
New England Champion at 145 
lbs.. Billy Callaghan decisioned 
"Snakey" Graham, also a Fresh- 
man New England Champion at 
155 lbs. Callaghan opened <ip with 
a llghtning'fast take-down and a

celeration as a general policy is 
warranted only by a global war. 
Buy removing the opportunities 
for summer employment or tra-

balance of a college education. In 
my own case I have four years of 
medical school ahead of me. A 
hyper -concentrated education 
tends to burn out a student's in-

Infirmary FloodedasEpidemic 
Of Mild Flu Invades Campus 

by Dick Porter 

In view of the existing campus health situation, one of the most 
important bits of knowledge a student can have is information as to 
the wherabouts of the infirmary. As a service to any ignorant but 
flu-bitten Ephman. may we say that it hes at the north end of 
Park Street. 

Not that getting to the infirmary means anything — the problem 
Is getting into it. The current rumor is that your temperature must 
be over 104 to be allowed into the waiting room and 107 to get a bed. 

In one of the biggest .surges on 
Urmy's Inn experienced at Wil- 
liams ill many a year, the build-

Survey Shows Most Colleges 
Favor Acceleration Programs 

In view of the acceleration policy adopted here, the RECORD 
has made a brief survey to determine how other colleges are reacting 
to the threat of war. The threat of mobilization has produced a 
variety of responses from colleges and universities across the nation. 
The general trend, however, seems to be towards the adoption of 
some form of accelerated program. A poll recently conducted by the 
New York Times shows 50'« of the colleges already committed to

day in Williamstown for the eighth 
annual Pentagonal Conference, a 
three day-discussion of current ed- 
ucational problems. 

Interciewed on the progress ol 
the informal high-level talks, Ro-

liams College, stated that much 
attention was focused on the fu- 
ture of higher education in the 
face of the present national emer- 

Acceleration Discussed 

In noting that the accelera- 
tion question formed an impor- 
tant conference topic. Dean Brooks 
mentioned that all five colleges 
represented had plans for either 
accelerated curriculum or a vol- 
untary summer session. Other 
problems of educational manage- 
ment were also reviewed In the 
light of the current critical situ- 

Dean Brooks laid particular 
emphasis upon the secret nature 
of the Pentagonal Conference. 
Explaining that the success of the 
confeience in a large measure 
depended on its informality and 
lack of publicity. 

Opinions Off the Record 

Said Mr. Brooks. "Although I 
can speak for Williams College, 
any decisions pertaining to the 
other colleges here at the confer- 
ence will have to come through 
their repi'esentatives." In conclu- 
sion, he stressed that any opin- 
ions aired at the conference were 
"off the record . . . merely an ex- 
chnnpiTiy of views'* 

Represented at the conference, 
which ended with dinner at the 
Williams Inn Sunday noon, were

Dean C. Scott Porter of Amherst.

A new draft bill being consid- 
ered In the House Armed Services 
Committee would lower draft age 
from 19 to IBJi and raise the tenn 
of required training from twenty- 
one to twenty-.slx months. The 
bill being considered in the Sen- 
ate Armed Services Committee 
calls for twenty-six months also. 
Both bills agi'ee that, after this 
first period, five years and ten 
months more be required in a re- 
.serve or National Guard Unit, for 
a total service of eight years. 

However, the Senate bill would 
authorize draft of all 18-ycar- 
olds only after the 19-26 age group 
had been exhausted. This would 
seem to indicate that colleges 
would be stripped of all their men 
in thai age group before younger 
men were taken, and they would 
be presented with the very diffi- 
cult problem of continuing to op- 
erate under those conditions.

man of the Committee, differs from

According lo the measure in- 
troduced by Chaii-man Vinson, 
those college students who became 
IBM while doing sati.sfactory work 
would be deferred until the end 
of that academic year. The bill 
also stipulates that volunteers 
from the ages 18-26 must serve a 
term of two months of active duty 
and five years, ten months In the 
reserve, while 17-year-olds who 
volunteer with the consent of their 
parents would serve 26 months on 
active duty but only one year and 
ten months in the reserve. 
New ROTC Proposals 
.Mso under consideration in the 
Nation's capitol are three pro- 
posed changes concerning ROTC 
units of all branches of service 
at the various colleges. The plans 
consideied are very similar to the 
Halloway Plan which is in opera- 
tion at the present time for all 
NROTC outfits.

Among those colleges planning 
acceleration, a number of dif- 
ferent progiams have been an- 
nounced. By far the largest group 
has come out for an 11 or 12-week 
summer session, open to fresh- 
men but optional foi- all. aimed 
toward permitting graduation in 
three years. Schools following this 
plan include Dartmouth. U. of 
Mass.. Colgate. Hamilton, and 

Spet^ial Plans 
A different solution is offered 
by PitLsburgh's Camegle Tech, 
which expects to admit fieshmen 
this June, allowing them to ac- 
celerate only in science and re- 
lated majors, while making no 
provision for upperclassmen. R.P. 
I.. Kenyon, and Denver U. plan 
still another program, offering 
four ll-w-eek teinio per year and 
allowing graduation in three years. 
Since many colleges have always 
offered short summer sessions of 
six weeks or so. a number, in- 
cluding St. Michael's and the Uni- 
versity of Detroit, will offer two 
such terms per summer. The lat-

sessions equal two normal semes-

Marking Time 

Now that the original shock has worn oH, and most Americans 
liave come to reahne that we may be In for a real fight, or at best 
a lent! hard pull, we are forced to sit around and wait until some- 
body lets us know where we are yoing. Everywhere you look, every- 
thing is still up in the air. 

Oowr. in WashiiiBton, Congressmen are juggling the draft law 
as thougli it were the proverbial hot potato. Some insist that the 
18-year old is sacred, while equally insisting that there is nothing 
at all sacred about the college student who should be yanked out of 
school before any 18-year olds are drafted. Other Congressmen 
are having a field day engaging in the "Great Debate", although 
wliat the people want is action, not oratory. 

Back in the hinterlands, college and university presidents, who 
might be expected to preserve a common front in face of the storm, 
have split wide open on the subject of acceleration. If there is an 
answer, no one seems to have come up with it yet. 

No Panic 

Meanw'hile, the college student is caught plumb in the middle 
of all the arguments, and nobody seems to cai'e much what he thinks 
about tile situation. Despite his predicament, the undergraduates 
seems to be taking it in his stride. Others may be running around 
with their heads chopped off, but at least on the Williams campus, 
everybody is taking it pretty calmly. 

There has been no impetuous and unreasoning flocking to the 
recruiting stations. As yet, there are no signs that students are throw- 
ing their books out the windows. No one is preaching the doctrine of 
eat. drink and be merry Nearly everyone is thoughtfully waiting 
for the dust to clear. 

This is a good sign. It shows that most of us are not waiting 
to be told what to do, but are going ahead with our normal tasks 
and living as though we'll be alive tomorrow to bear the responsi, 
bilities for our actions. 

And don't this with complacency. 

Because we know better than many might think, that there is 
a war going on.

madcap racing driver Gable, and succeeds in having him bamied 
fi-om all midget tracks. This results, nulurully, in a happy romance, 
but not until Gable has a chance to prove that he is still rough 
and tough at fifty. Barbara is allowed one of her emotional out- 
bursts, which still top tlie Held ilier only close competition coming 
from the war dances of the Giant Watussi's of darkest equatorial 
Africa. I The racing sequences aie excellent. They will excite all 
except those who have driven the Taconic Trail with Duke Chapman 
53. Recommendation: good light relaxation from the strain of three 
days' classes. 

Fri. - Sat. - "The Paleface". Jane Russell is prominently displayed m 
various costumes, all of whicli lend support to an already proven fact. 
If she could act like Ava Gardner in "One Touch of Venus", there 
would be no saving the Co-op's mannlkins. Unfortunately, she can't, 
but much of this slack (if the word is appropriate i is taken up by 
the clowning of Bob Hoix'. Not liis best by any means, but lots of

do what they can. Recommendation: a good way to start a peaceful 
decorous week-end. 

Sun. - Men - "Harriet Craig". With this movie, a new game is added 
to the "all time" cinema lady - villain list. The simple theme of a 
woman who loves her home more than her husband is beautifully 
developed as Harriet's every action enmeshes her and her husband 
deeper and deeper in a tangle from which there is no escape. Well 
written and directed, with excellent performances by Joan Crawford 
and Wendell Corey. Recommendation: A fine picture, well worth 

Tue. - "Animal Crackers." The third recent local featuring the Marx

To the Editor of the Williams RECORD: 

The latest Sterling Committee proposals in regard to West Col- 
lege, a Student Union, and the status of a new Garfield Club should 
be matters of interest to everyone on campus. Overshadowing the 
other issues by far are the considerations in regard to a new Club. 

With all ideas of complete rushing gone - and justly so, I think 
- attention should be turned to the Club and what is to be done 
about it. It has been perpetuated, and now should be turned into 
a campus asset, rather than be allowed to continue in the position 
so many feel it now holds. 

Where, How, and When'i* 

For some years now a new physical plant for the Garfield Club 
has been promised. For some reason or other, it is still in the piomise 
stage. The facilities at Currier are outmoded and inadequate: there 
is no case that needs to be made in regard to whether a new Club is 
worthwhile. The important questions are where, how, and when. The 
Sterling Committee has I'ecommended that a Student Union be built, 

ai a general loimge 

b) general recreational facilities 

ci cafeteria-snack bar 

di generous kitchen faciUties 

ei headquarters for CBM 

fi dining and recreational facilities for Garfield Club members 

g> living quarters for Garfield Club seniors. 
Further recommendations are that West College provide the above- 
mentioned housing for Club seniors, that perhaps the Club social 
rooms be located on the first floor of West, and that thei'e be a 
physical connection between West and Student Union. 

West College Keconslructioii and Stiuleut 
Union Can't Be Combined with New (Jul) 

If the present Club facilities are inadequate, then it is difflcull 
to conceive of enhancing the situation by trying to bottle up the or- 
ganization in West. There were living quarters for forty-nine there 
befoi'e the fire. Converting the first fioor for social functions would 
pare the future figure down to about thirty-six. Considering the size 
of its membership, the Club should be able to provide quarters for 
around sixty. This is essential if it is to preserve what vestiges of 
unity it now has. Furthermore, in Currier - inadequate Currier - at 
the present time the social rooms ai-e two large lounges, a game room, 
and a library-study. It would be a radically different West College 
that could provide these facilities and sufficient housing too. 

Up to this point the facilities that the Student Union might 
provide for the Club have been omitted - for a definite reason. The 
Garfield Club is a "private" social organization and should not be 
required to use facilities it cannot claim as Ijeing exclusively its 
own. As an analogy to the recommendations, consider building the 
Student Union adjacent to KA, requiilng its members to eat there 
and meet there; consider constructing a few covered corridors so any- 
body could prowl about the house who so desired. One could develop 
the same sort of idea in connection with Phi Gam, and other houses 
on campus. The result in any case is a ridiculous situation. If the 
houses have their rights to privacy and exclusiveness - as undeniably 
they have - then by the same token so does the Garfield Club. 

Erect New Building on Main Street 

The situation is not completely without solution. The most ob- 
vious answer is to continue with the new Oarfield Club as originally 
pi-ojected, on the site of Greylock Hall. The Student Union could 
still be situated on the lab campus, and could still fulfill its nece-ssary 
role. As an alternative - and an interesting one - the new Garfield 
Club could be built to the west of West College, fronting on Main 
Street. In this case one could incorporate West in the arrangements. ! 
With the dormitory restored to house about forty students, and the 
new Club building providing eating and social facilities, plus housing 
tor an additional twenty, the main problem would be solved. The 
stigma of being an orphan organization, without a place really Its

Victory over Worcester Tech 

by Kay KulllKian 

Posting eighteen consecutive 
miu'kers over un eiBlit minute 
span, llie Williums biislcelball top- 
pled II spirited Worcester 'I'ech 
live. 53-47. at the Tecli Hymnu.sium 
.Saturday night. 

Paced by co-captains aiieehy 
,ind Larson, wlio combined for a 
ihirty-six point total, the Epli- 
men chalked up their thirtecntli 
victory of the season, brinuini; 
their record on the road to live 
and five. 

Kphmeii Kally 
At the end of five minutes of 
p;ay. the score board read 9-1 tor 
(lie home crew, a.s the Purple 
lounted only once on Harry Shee- 
liy's charity 

With tight defensive work and 
sharp .scoring thrusts, the Shaw- 
inen countered with eigliteen con 
ucutive points to take a ten point 
idvantage from which Worcester 
\vas unable successfully to recover. 
.Sheehy led the assault with ten 
udlies on an assortment of shots. 

Tuugh Tech Defense 

I'hruwing up a surprise zone 
defense, the Techmen were able to 
keep Williams from piling up a 
larger score. The Ephmen were 
bothered continually throughout 
Llie night by the pesky play of 
Fratino and Mchalic. losing tfie 
ball a number of limes on block- 
ed shots and intercepted passes. 

Due to the fine rebounding and 
scoring abilities of Slieehy and 
Larson, the Ephmen maintained 
at least a five point marsin 

throuBliout the whole second can- 
to. The co-captains together net- 
ted nineteen of tile team's twenty- 
eight point total in the .second 
half. Big Harry Sheehy with eight 
hoops and six free throws for 
twenty-two points lopped the scor- 
ing for both teams. 

Little Tliiee Notes 

While Williams garnered its 
thirteenth win of the campaign. 
Amherst crushed Wesleyan by a 
()(i-48 .score. Thus, with the two 
approaching Amherst- Williams 
elastics rests the outcome for the 
Little Three Champiun.ship. Coach 
Al Shaw's stalwarts must sweep 
the series to gain undLsputed pos- 
session of the Little Three. 

Besides Amherst, only Spring- 
Held, this evening, and RPI a week 
from toiiiglit remain on the Eph 
schedule. At stake also in the four 
final games is a po.s.sible invita- 
tion to the New England College 
Cunlerence which will include the 
eight tup teams in New England.

Piling up a commanding 4-1 
lead in the first period, the Wil-

day on the Cole Field rink. This 
was victory No. 2 for the Purple. 

Mitch PLsh put Williams out in

and John Nelson made it 2-0 at 
12:05 when he picked up the puck

connected with some form of re- 
serve program I to miss the prob- 
able opportunity of completing his 
senior year before entering the 
service. Since I am doubtful of my 
plans after the service. I am an- 
xious to complete my education 
as soon as possible. Therefore I 
definitely plan to attend the sum- 
mer session at Williams." 


'84, Zete: "Since 
I am not In an 
ROTC program, 
1 definitely plan 
to return to WU 
Hams this sum- 
mer. I feel It Is 
important that I 
complete as much, 
of my education 
as possible before the draft takes 
rtie. It would be better to enter 
the service at the end of two years 
rather than at the completion of 
the freshman year only. It seems 
to me that If the college plans to 
begin such a summer program. It 
ought to require compulsory at- 
tendance. The present regulation 
will result in the division of all 
classes, particularly the freshman 
class, which Is just acquiring a 
semblance of unity. The college, 
however, would have to make al- 
lowances for those boys who un- 
dergo financial sacrifices by at- 
tending the summer se.ssion. if it 
were compulsory." 

John Munson 
•54. D Phi: "I 
feel the only ex 
cuse for a sum 
mer session is to| 
escape the draft. 
In my own case 
I have resorted 
to a naval reserve 
program whichj 
requires t w o^' 
weeks of summer camp, so that 
attendance at Williams would be 
impractical. As a freshman I am 
not optimistic about my chances 
of completing college before en- 
tering the service. Therefore I do 
not see the value of cramming in 
an additional tei-m, since gradua- 
tion is so distant. The greatest 
drawback of the summer session 
Is the effect it will have on the 
school year. I, like so many others, 
feel the financial necessity of sum- 

mer employment. In addition the 
vacation provides an Important 
step towards the maturity of the 
average undergraduate. Year 
round education might drain the 
pleasure out of the important col- 
lege years, and turn Williams into 
a drab grind. Spending summers 
at an informative job or traveling 
in such organizations as the Ex- 
periment in International Living 
gives more balance to an educa- 
tion than studies alone." 

John Clarey '52, Saint: "Having 
no immediate worries about the 
draft as a veteran, I have a dif- 
ferent viewpoint than many un- 
dergraduates. I have not decided 
whether or not I will attend the 
summer session, although I'm 
somewhat prompted by the desii'e 
to finish college as soon a.s pos- 
sible. As a policy I feel the sum- 
mer plan would be beneficial to 
those who are in doubt about the 
completion of their education. For 
those students who are anxious 
to get through college in a hurry 
or are worried about their draft 
status. I consider the summer 
session a wonderful opportunity. 
This particularly applies to in- 
coming freshmen." 

Dick Squires '53. AD: "Con 
cerning my summer plans. I Ima 
glne that I am as perplexed as the 
next fellott\ Naturally, I would 
like to get as much college under 
my belt as possible. I am not in 
the R.O.T.C. or attached to any 
reserve unit. At any moment I ex- 
pect to be called for my pre-in- 
duction pliysical, and the way 
the draft ruling stands now, this 
means that I am as good as in the 
service come June. However, draft 
legislation fluctuates like the stock 
market and my only gripe is that 
I wish we could be told definitely 
where we stand. It Is this air of 
lingering apprehension that irri- 
tates me more than anything!" 

Dan Tritter '54, Phi Slg: "I do 
not plan to come to Williams this 
summer. I am not yet of draft 
age, so I can see no immediate 
danger. The plan doesn't seem to 
offer a definite advantage for 
those freshmen who will not be 
drafted for another year or more. 
Furthermore I want to get a sum- 
mer job. I do not see how boys 
who depend on summer earnings 
can aitord to attend college all 
year round, unless they have large

Brooks Outlines Williams Plans for Acceleration 

Summer Session to Begin 
For All Classes June 25 

by Dean Robert R. R. Brooka 

Williams iidoplud the iicceleiated promum lo help undergrad- 
uates and prospective li-eshmen net as much of their education under 
their belt as possible before entering service. Acceleration Is a "tran- 
sitional" device to meet the special problems of the period between 
the end of the present draft law and the final impact of tlie new man- 
power bill. Durinti htis period college administrators recognize that 
some of all four classes may be drafted. The summer tcim is optional In 
order to leave it entirely to the student and his family to decide 
how his best Interests will be served during this trying time. 

It is already clear that a large number of prospective freshmen — 
from one-half to three-quarters of those questioned — would take 
advantage of the opportunity to be here this summei. Other colleges 
such as Amherst, Bowdoin and Dartmouth report similar reactions 
from sub-freshmen and their families. Many prospective freshmen, 
by starting In June, will probably be able to finish two years of col- 
lege. It seems unlikely, even if Congress pa.sses .some form of 18- 
year old draft, that many 18-year olds will actually be called for a 
good many months ahead. This means that prospective freshmen 
who will reach 17 years and a few months in June may be able not 
only to finish the flist year but to enroll as sophomores in February 
with the possibility of completing their second academic year. 


Fiiiibli Two 



Dean Robert R. K. Brooks, who explains in tliis issue of the 
RECORD tlie administration's plans for acceleration at Williams, 

Somewhat the .same reasoning applies to the class of 1954. Ninety 
percent of present noii-ROTC freshmen have not yet been classified 
and will probably not be classified before the 1st of July. It may well 
be tliat if they can begin the summer term before receiving their in- 
duction notices they will be permitted to complete the academic year. 
It would appear, therefore, that many prospective freshmen and non- 
ROTC sophomores will be glad of the opportunity to accelerate. 

With respect to juniors and seniors, the case is by no means as 
cl:'ar. Their draft sti.tus will depend to a greater extent upon pending 
Coiigressional legislation and '.'xecutive ordere. College administra- 
tive officers at Williams and throughout the coimtry are as much In 
the dark on this point as the members of the present sophomore and 
junior classes. 

Since summer ROTC is to be optional and ROTC deferments are 
iio„ conditional upon acceleration, ROTC upperclassmen will probably 
not ."^lect the summer term. 

When the manpower b.ll was presented in January it was hoped 
Ijy many educators tliat the drafting of some 18-year olds would 
permit an extension of the deferments to many if not most of the 
present sophomore and junior classes until graduation. If, however, 
the Senate Committee amendment is adopted requiring that no IB- 
year old be drafted until the 19-25 age group is exhausted, the num- 
ber of upperclassmen over 19 who will be in college next year may be

Tuesday evening's capacity au-

the concussion and the falling de-

70,000 died of radiation disease 
within four weeks after the blast 
The lecturer described the great

Town Accepts 
School Plans 

Overwhelming Majority 
Appropriates Funds 

With a decisive vote of 449-2 
at a town meeting Monday night. 
February 26. the people of Wll- 
liamstown decided to go ahead 
with plans for the new public 
school. It was decided that be- 
sides tile $223,000 which was ap- 
propriated ill 1949, an additional 
$139,000 should BO toward the 
new pro.iect. 

At a special town meeting held 
in May. 1950, a similar plan which 
called for only $53,000 extra ap- 
propriation, $70,000 less than the 
one which passed last Monday, 
was turned down. After the School 
Committee had suggested their 
final sum, the Town Finance Com- 
mittee suggested cutting the fig- 
ure by $7000. Mr. George Harper, 
as chairman of the School Com- 
mittee, replied successfully to this 
proposal, proving why the larger 
sum was neces.sary. 

Baxter Speaks 

As first speaker in support of 
the new project. President Bax- 
ter emphasized that even though 
the college was the second highest 
taxpayer in town, he was more 
than willing to put his support 
behind the new buildiiig. 

The new building will be placed 
between the present high school 
and grammar school on School 
Street, and will service both 
schools. Plans Include two large 
kindergarten rooms, six standard 
class rooms, a handsome domestic 
arts headquarters, an agricultur- 
al and vocational shop, and a 
large music and art room. 

Beside the building itself, im- 
provement in the entire school 
system will come about, due to 
a $300 salary increase for all the 
teachers, bringing the average to 
$3450 a year. These salaries now 
range from a $2700 minimum to 
$3900 as a maximum , figures 
which coincide relatively closely 
to the state average.

Brooks Describes Acceleration Plans 

Continued from Pace 1 

cul in Imlf. Since the bill may not receive its flnal form until some 
time in April or May a further period of uncertainty is inevitable. 

In tlie meantime, present sophomores and Juniors may find it 
worthwhile to keep in touch with their local boards so that when the 
indications from WasliinBton are clearer, they will be able to make 
up their minds promptly about the summer term. 

The college will, of course, do everything it can to help meet the 
financial problems and to provide the coui'ses needed by those who 
elect to come here. 

Students Cuu Reverse Order oC Terms 

lu Full-Year Courses 

In general, the curriculum will be arranged in such a way that 
the two terms of a full year course can be taiien In either order. For 
example, either Botany or Zoology could come first in Biology 1-2. 
Where this is not possible, both semesters of a year will be 
given simultaneously. Junior and senior single-semester courses will 
be oHered in sufficient number to fill out the electives in junior and 
senior schedules and to provide parallel courses in the majors, al- 
though the "normal" sequence courses cannot now be guaranteed. 
Dui'ing this transition period, however, the list of advanced coui'ses 
cannot be as long in any one semester as it has tieen in the past. But 
an effort will be made to ofler courses alternately so that they will 
be available over a period of two or three semesters. 

In a recent statement approved by President Conant and six 
other college presidents, emphasis was placed on the educational 
disadvantages of acceleration in what they assumed to be a long-run 
program. However, Williams does not regard this as a long-rim pro- 
gram, and the disadvantages to the Faculty will be met by providing 
as far as possible that each member of the Faculty teach only two 
terms out of three. Undergraduates need not accelerate if they do 
not wish to. 

Many if not all the colleges in the Harvard group aie themselves 
actually providing an opportunity for acceleration to Individuals 
who wish to combine summer school courses with overloads during 
normal semesters. 

To Uetain Coniprehensives 

The major or comprehensive examination system which for 
twenty years has been a distinctive feature of many New England 
colleges will be retained. The reduction in the weight of the major 
examination in computing the major grade is a concession to the 
need for a shortened examination schedule and an advance recogni- 
tion of the fact that it will be difficult for two or three years to pro- 
vide all the courses required in the present major sequence, parallel 
and correlation courses. 

The reduction of flnal examinations from three hours to two 
is the result not only of the need for saving time in June and Sep- 
tember but also a conviction held by many members of the Faculty 

that three- hour examinations are uimecessarily long. Any student 
having several exams In a row will be permitted to take makeup 
exams at the end of the examination period. In the small courses 
which are the rule at Williams, teachers know a good deal about 
their individual students by the time finals come around. No magic 
insight Is provided by the third hour. Other colleges with similar 
standards have reached this conclusion under normal peacetime 

Acceleration Calendar 

The calendar for the summer term is as follows: Fieshman 
Orientation, June 23 and 24. Classes begin, June 25. Midterm 
holiday, August 8 to 14. Classes end, September 15. Examinations, 
September 17 to 22. Fall term begins October 8. This means that 
the summer term will have 34 class meetings as compared with 42 
class meetings in a normal semester. This shortening of the 
summer term is necessary because il) there should be at least 
.two weeks break for both Faculty and students between the end 
of the present term and the beginning of the summer tei-m; (2) 
it is Important to start the fall term at about the same time as 
their colleges. The five-day midterm break has been adopted in- 
stead of holidays on the 4th of July and Labor Day because a 
five-day rest will probably mean more to most students and 
members of the Faculty than a scattering of one-day holidays 
throughout the term. Because of the strict limits set by the opening 
and closing dates, it is not possible to have both types of holiday 
and still maintain standards comparable with other colleges 
offering full credit for the summer term. 

Must Wait for Congress 

It is clear that firm decisions about teaching staff and curriculum 
including Honors work, will have to wait until all of us know more 
about the new manpower bill. It apears that there will be enough 
students here this summer to Justify some extracurricular activities, 
perhaps in abbreviated form. Intramural athletics should be quite 
feasible and even Informal intercollegiate relations may be possible 
with other colleges offering a' summer term. 

Answers to the problems connected with housing, feeding and 
freshman rushing in the .summer term will also have to wait until 
the new manpower bill crystalizes. But advance consideration by the 
O.C. the S.A.C. and C.B.M. will expedite final action. 

WilUams' decision to accelerate was made early and firmly In 
order to provide at least one Island of certainty in a sea of uncertainty. 
In effect, Williams says to all undergraduates, "If you want to 
accelerate and are free to do so, you may be sure of the opportimity." 


The big problem in academic circles today centers around the 
issue of acceleration The men who are responsible for the higher ed- 
ucation are sharply divided on the issue. Any fair-minded man must 
admit that there are good arguments for both sides; but when lead- 
ing educators are willing to take an absolute stand tor one side of 
the problem, there must be one position which is more tenable than 

No matter how you look at it, tlie argument for acceleration 
contends that it will enable men to get more education in less time 
before they enter the service. Yet as the draft bills now stand, there 
is no guarantee for men now in college that they will be permitted 
to continue in their studies. As yet "acceleration" has not become 
sacred in Washington. Congressmen have not assured anyone that 
present Juniors or sophomores will be able to finish school. 

If acceleration does not enable an undergraduate to complete his 
secondary education, what are its advantages? There is no guarantee 
that a man with one or even two years of college credit would be in 
a materially better position in the service. There is also a strong 
argument which contends that students would accrue greater benefits 
by completing their tei-m of military service and then returning to 
enter college and finish an uninterrupted schedule. 

Those who oppose acceleration, and their numbers include some 
of our most eminent educatoi-s, contend that past experience shows 
that acceleration Is undesirable. It strains the faculty, overburdens 
the student, and to quote Dr. Griswold of Yale, produces "an all- 
round lowering of standards and cheapening of products". These are 
strong words and they cannot be lightly dismissed. Nor are they one 
man's opinion. 

A Williams Education 

Particularly at Williams we pride ourselves In all the advan- 
tages which we received from a small college environment and 
education. We feel strongly about our extra-curricular programs, 
which are an Integral part of our education. Nobody ever came to 
Williams to get a speeded-up education. Four years of living on the 
Williams campus are an essential element in our educational process. 
Acceleration wipes the majority of these values out. Acceleration 
tends to destroy precisely what we esteem the most. 

We are not out to sacilflce the Junior class. But for the most 
part, the need for acceleration has not been proved. As Dr. Conant 
of Harvard and other presidents declared, "intensive acceleration is 
Justified only under war conditions" and the United States is not 
"engaged in a global war nor committed to total mobilization." 
Williams College has adopted a short run policy In a long term 

The mere fact that summer sessions are optional does not in- 
validate these arguments. The affects of a<iceleration are far 
reaching. Institution of acceleration means changes all along the line. 
Subsequent events may make acceleration necessary. A good part 
of the confusion must be laid to Congress, which appears more 
panicked than anyone. But this does not mean that Williams College 
should jump the gun. Our stand should not be .so resolute that we 
cannot make a new decision in the light of future occurrences. A 
great deal is at stake In this matter. We cannot be too careful In 
choosing our way.

The other day, we took a trip down Spring Street to discover 
the effect of the recent flu epidemic on the business of the community. 
The first stop was the College Restaurant. At the big window table 
on the left, the faculty committee on coffee drinking was holdhig its 
morning session, joined by a few of the more daring undergraduates. 
Mike was behind the counter shaking up huge Jars of pale orange 
juice, and the rest of the trained staff were getting in each other's 

"Mike," we said, striving to make ourselves heard above the 
bounchlng dishes, "what do you think of this recent flu epidemic?" 
It suddenly occurred to us that this remark was a little tactless, as 
competition next door had been virtually eliminated for a week because 
of flu. To cause no embarassment. we left immediately. 

The right window of the Coop was crowded with men's shorts. 
They ranged In color from plain white to wild conglameratlons of 
color and included an equal variety of shapes. We wondered whether 
the faculty or the undergraduates would be more likely to purchase 
such barbaric underclothing. Though dazzled by the display, we opened 
the door and walked in. Jack Henderson grunted amiably and handed 
us a sportcoat. "Finest I've ever seen", he said. 

"Jack," we said "what do you think of this recent flu epidemic?" 

"Got a shipment of only four of these. Next year. . ." 

"Jack, the flu epidemic." 

"Next year," he continued, "you won't be able to get a coat like 
this at any price." 

It was a handsome coat, so we left before we were tempted. 

On our way to visit Mr. Washburn, we stuck our head into the 
barber shop to say "So long" to Armand St. Pierre. 

To our disappointment, Mr. Washburn was not yet abroad and 
his door was locked fast. We gave free license to our intellectual cur- 
iosity and perused his window display which ranged from a treatUe 
entitled "Patterns of Sexual Behavior" to Burner Oodden's novel, "A 
Breath of Air." 

Tom Walsh greeted us with an amiable grin and handed us a 
sport coat. "This Is one of the handsomest coats we've had all year." 

"Tom." we said quickly, "what do you think of the recent flu 

"We've found In our experience that these Harris tweeds are 
without doubt the most durable coat you can buy." 

"Tom," we said desperately,, "the flu epidemic." 

"Next year." he continued, "the prices on these Harris tweeds 
win go way up." 

We fled to the street.

When the news got around that

You can hardly blame us I We

shhe, an Olympic and FIS star, 
and Purple Heart veteran of the 
Italian campalRn. and we heard 

Ralph Townsend then put In a 
personal appearance, and we were 
nothing short of amazed. How 
could such a diminutive edition 
ol humanity possibly have esta 
bllshed such a top-notch reputa 
tlon In the ski world? What's 
more, how could he provide the 
leadership and instruction neces 
sary to turn out a high class ski 
squad? Our queries were soon to 
l>e answered. 

To date the boys on the boards 
have competed in three meets. 
They opened the season by cop- 
ping the Eastern Intercollegiate 
Ski Association Class B crown 
and climbing into the Class A 
bracket. Despite a setback at Mc- 
QiU against the best In the east, 
they came back with a good show- 
ing at Mlddlebury. The future is 
indeed bright.

the ADs came back in the waning 
minutes of the stanza to go off

The early part of the .second

Riding on the crest of a five- 
game win streak, the Williams Col- 
lege basketball quintet went down 
to defeat before a strong Spring- 
field Ave in a hard fought battle 
al the Springfield Gymnasium, 
Wednesday night, 60-54. In hold- 
ing Big Harry Sheehy to a mere 
five points, the Redmen stifled the 
Williams offense In highly suc- 
cessful fashion. 

With fine defensive work by 
both teams neither club was able 
to display a concerted drive. Mid- 
way through the first stanza, the 
Ephmen. on the short end of a 
13-7 score, came to life. Two hoops 
by Laison. and sets by Morse and 
Speck closed the gap. In the final 
minute of the period Walt Morse, 
with a long set shot and a charity 
toss knotted the count at 25-all as 
the half ended. 

Indians Surg:e Ahead 

After dropping behind 35-31 in 
the opening minutes of the second 
canto, Springfield, led by the 
sharpshooting of Burke and Mc- 
Clements, again set the pace as 
they spurted into the lead at the 
ten-minute mark. From there they 
were never again headed, though 
the Ephmen tried desperately to 
rally In the final minutes on Shee- 
hy's tap-in and Paul Cramer's 
long one-hander. 

Outstanding in the Williams 
ranks were Co-Captain Larson, 
whose twenty points was tops for 
I the evening, and Walt Morse who 
displayed excellent rebound work 
together with his ten-point total. 

Little Three at Stake Tonight 

Tonight at Amherst, Coach Al 
Shaw's cohorts go after the Lord 
Jeffs in the final round for the 
Little Three Crown. The Ephs 
boast a 13 and 6 record including 
two wins over Wesleyan. At the 
same time. Amherst will take the 
floor with a 9 and 7 slate, also 
claiming twin decisions over the 
hapless Wesmen.

Steinbrenner Selected 
For Special Hurdles 



The varsity winter track team, 
I which posted the very good time 
of 3:28 at the IntercoUeglates last 
week, will conclude the season to- 
night at the very exclusive New 
York K. of C. Games at Madison 
Square Garden. The K. of C. meet, 
as the last of the Eastern indoor 
season, is usually the occasion of 
many attempts to break records, 
and as such draws very carefully 
selected fields. 

The regular relay quartet of 
Bob Jones. Jim Haskell, and co- 
captains Andy Bacharach and 
Walt Ziegenhais will compete for 
Williams in a field of 18 of the 
best Eastern mile-ielay teams. 
Represented in the same heat with 
the Ephmen will be such colleges 
as BC. St. John's, St. Francis and 

Junior George Steinbrenner is 
among ten outstanding timber- 
toppers included in the Invita- 
tional 60-yard high hurdles event. 
Others so honored include former 
Intercollegiate champion Jim 
Gehrdes and internationally 
known Harrison Dlllard, who will 
be trying for a new record. 

Bacharach and Steinbrenner, a- 
iong with sophomore Bill Miller, 
a promising neophyte, are enter- 
ed in the handicap dash event, and 
all will start with an edge of four 
\ feet. John will try his luck

the Williams lineup in the in-

Freestyle. Coach Muir is as yet 
undecided about his entries In the 
other events. 

Varsity Squash 
Williams' most powerful squash 
team In many a year travels to 
Amherst today thirsting for re 
venge. For the past two years the 
Jefis have managed to squeak out 
5-4 victories over the Chaffeemen 
to secure the Little Three squash 
championship, but today a heav 
ily favored Purple squad hopes to 
regain the crown. 

The contest won't be a push 
over, however, for the Jeffs will 
bo keyed up for this vital Little 
Thi'ee contest, and four lettermen 
from last year's victorious team 
will be out to repeat their last 
performance against the Purple 

Probably the most heartening 
comparative scores are those for 
the contests with Yale and Army. 
Both teams trounced Sabrina 8-1 
while succumbing to the Ephmen 
5-4 and 9-0 respectively. 
Varsity Hockey 
Wmding up its schedule this 
weekend, the Williams hockey 
squad, minus the services of start- 
ing center Jim Harvey, journeys 
to Hamilton College to face off 
against Colgate and Hamilton on 
successive nights. Harvey was 
sidelined with a broken wrist dur- 
ing Tuesday's 3-0 loss to Amherst. 
The Colgate match is the feature 
of a double header on the Hamil- 
ton rink Friday night The Red 
Raiders, who possess a fair sea- 
son's record to date, were jolted 
recently by the loss of five starters, 
dropped from the squad for break- 
ing training rules. 

In the event of lack of ice on 
the Hamilton rink, the Colgate 
game will be canceled, and Satur 
day's Hamilton contest transferr 
ed to the Clinton Arena.

one-point margin. The Sig Phis 
took the lead at the middle of 
the second half. The Phi Sigs re

final "Williams" question ahead 
by two points.

Bob Muir's yearling crew and the 
Lord Jetfs from Amherst, both 
teams conqueiors of Wesleyan, re- 
new their annual rivalry. 

The Eph frosh, have only one 
lone win over the Cardinals to 
their credit this season agaliisl 
two reversals. However, with co- 
captains Max Rogers and Charlie 
Douglas spear-heading the title 
drive, the improving Purple may 
easily surprise. The meet is sched- 
uled for four o'clock. 

Chances for the freshmen to re- 
tain their Little Three laurels are 
a little less than even on the ba- 
sis of comparative scoi-es. Both 
teams have played thiee matclies 
to date, both having beaten Wi'.s- 
leyan frosh while losing to Die 
Harvard frosh and Deerfleld. 

Amherst blanked the Cardinal 
frosh while the Eph yearlings won 
by a 6-3 score. The Williams 
took two matches against a Deer- 
fleld team that blanked the Am- 
herst squad 9-0. The Harvard 
cubs however, shut out our frcili- 
men while losing two matches to 
Amherst. The match should be 
pretty much of a toss-up witli 
the Amherst boys having the ad 
vantage of familiar courts.

Bob Halfacre Boasts Three 
Decades of Service in Dorm 

Sage Janitor Recounts 

Noteworthy Highlights 

Of Williams Career 

by Dick Porter 

Freshmen come and go every 
year in Sage Hall, but there is one 
person who provides a continuity 
to the 29 year-old dormitory - 
Bob Halfacre, its Janitor, whose 
friendly face and English accent 
will long be remembered by three 
decades of Sage alumni. 

Of all his 50 years in America 
Bob seems to hold only a pro- 
found regret that he ever left 
Britain except in one respect, the 
tremendous, almost fatherly, pride 
he feels towards Sage boys. A 
warm glow covers his face when 
he recalls meeting a freshman 
of a quarter century ago bringing 
Ills son into Sage. 

Came in 1918 

Now 72, Bob is worried over his 
retirement, although his problem 
has been made somewhat easier 
by the institution of Social Se- 
curity recently for the college's 
employees. He will be able to col- 
lect on It In 16 months and will 
probably retire then. 

When, anj if, he does leave 
Sage In 1952. Bob will have been 
there for 31 years, the entire life 
of the building. Coming to Wil-

broken by each side as the former 
ly unbeaten Sabrinas battled to 
retain tlieir clean slate. 

In tlie opening event, the combo 
of Byerly, Jeffrey and Belash 
broke the Williams College record 
with a 2:59.7 in the 300yd. Med- 
ley Relay. This missed the pool 
record by only seven-tenths of a

Geithner of Amherst came back 
ill the 200yd. Breaststroke to edge 
out Rick Jeffrey with a 2:30.7, 
breaking the Amherst College rec- 
ord. Jeffrey was handicapped all 
week by a bad cold which slowed 
him up in this event. 

Both Don Jones and Dick Mar- 
tin were tw^o event winners: Jones 
in the 220yd. and 440yd. Fiee- 
:>tyles, and Martin in tlie 50yd. 
and 100yd. Freestyles. 

Others Show Well 

Also showing well for the Pur- 
ple were Worthington who took 
seconds in both the 220yd. and 
440yd. Freestyles. and Molwitz who 
finished the 50yd. Freestyle in 
the number two berth. After the 
record Medley. John Belash re- 
turned to pick up second place 
points ill the 100 yd. Freestyle. 

On the other side of the pic-

Iniproniplu Speakers 
To \ie For Award 

George G. Connelly. Profes.sor 
of Public Speaking, has an- 
nounced that the A.V.W. Van 
Vetchten Prize of $30 for im- 
promptu public speaking will 
be awarded at a contest in 3 
Giiffln Hall at 7:30 on Mon- 
day evening. March 12. All ex- 
cept Freshmen are eligible. 

After drawing a card, each 
speaker will have a choice of 
three .subjects and three min- 
utes to expre-ss him.self. The 
two best speakers will be sel- 
ected for an impromptu debate 
with Smith on March 16. 

In the first successful bloodle-ss 
"Bicker" since the war years, the 
Princeton sophomores were suc- 
cessful in gaining their wish that 
each member of the class of '53 
should get a bid to one of the 17 
eating clubs. 

A comparison of the voluntary 
methods used this year with the 
coercion used by the class of 1952 
shows that the 100 per cent princi- 
ple has been accepted as a nec- 
essity in the club system. The final 
decision came on the last evening 
of the open liouse period and 
much of the success was due to 
the leadership of the Interclub 
Committee and their President, 
David P. Adams '51. 

Invitations Distributed 

Last Fiiday the Sophomores 
filled their preferential lists of 
the clubs they would like to join 
with the Central Committee. Pinal 
invitations to the Sophs will be 
distributed on March 9. and the 
acceptances must be returned be- 
fore Tuesday. March 13. 

Upon healing the success of the 
"Bicker". the Princeton nenn 

been able to achieve this goal with 
the full cooperation of the clubs 
and the Sophomores, without pres- 
sure and without tension. I am 
profoundly impressed witlh the 
sense of responsibility displayed 
by the clubs under the able lead- 
ership of Dave Adams and the 
Interclub Committee." 

Clubs like our fraternities 
Princeton's eating clubs are very 
similar to the fraternities at Wil- 
liams, both in their set-up and 
purpose. Providing social facilities 
for their members, the clubs are 
privately owned and legally in- 
dependent of the university. 

As announced by Dave Adams 
of the Interclub Committee, the 
Sophomores may use the Club 
facilities at any time over the 
Junior Prom week-end. 

In a Daily "Princetonian" ed- 
itorial, it was pointed out that; 
"Almost every cii-cumstance con- 
ceivable pointed toward the bid- 
ding of 100 per cent, including the 
feeling of the present Junior class, 
after last year's figlit, .and the 
exceptionally large sections by 
many clubs as insurance against 
loss to the draft " 


Something Old, Something New 

The old UCs dt'funct. Just a year ago they assumed the task 
of lunnini! undeigraduate affaU's, and now they must step down and 
accept their phice In the graveyard of old UCs, They have earned 
their rest. They have been the undergraduate spokesmen throughout 
one of the most controversial and constitutional problems which has 
confronted Williams College in a long time. Working In conjunction 
with the alumni and faculty, they explored the social structure 
of the college and gave it a thorough airing. 

All this was done in addition to the regular functional duties 
of the UC which make our school go round. We commend, here and 
now. President Selly and the UC for the time, effort, and thought 
which they gave to the school and the undergraduates. It's a tough 
.iob, and oftentimes a thankless job, but one which is very important. 

By the time this goes to press, the new UC will already have 
embarked upon its activities Its work is cut out for it, and It isn't 
going to be easy. Acceleration will create problems which must 
be settled, and the way those problems are handled is bound to 
have a lasting effect upon undergraduate life. 

So our eyes are on the new UC. We wish you bon voyage. We 
suspect that the task that lies ahead may make the trip a Ut- 
ile rough, but we expect to see you safe in port this time next year 


Varsity Coaches Whose Teams 
Beat Amherst Saturday 

by Tom Adkiiis 
Wed,-Thu,: "The IHagniHcient Vankee". Louis Calhern, as Oliver 
Wendell Holmes, equals his perfoi-mance in "Life Witli Father". 
Supported admirably by Ann Harding and some sparkling dia- 
logue, he raises the film well above the average biography. It's 
worth seeing even though recommended by Louis Sobol, Sheilah 
Graham, and Louella Parsons. 

Co-feature: "Farewell to Yesterday." Another documentary of the 
grim past twenty years. Many famous scenes (raising the Iwo 
Jima flag, the Weeping Frenchman, etc.) have been Joined to- 
gether in a surprisingly well-knit picture which attempts to dis- 
cover why World war II occurred. If you aren't filled to the teeth 
with this type of movie you will enjoy it, for it is one of the best. 

Fri.-Sat.: "The Fuller Brush Girl" Lucille Ball and Eddie Albert 
combine their talents to produce the least praise-worthy flick of 
the week. Lucille attempts to be Betty Hutton, and fails to the point 
of nausea. Eddie attempts to be himself, and succeeds to the same 
degree. The plot is non-existent, the direction sloppy, and the 
humor on a plane somewhere between Joe McDoaks and the Three 
Stooges. Co-feature: "The Iroquois Trail." Far better than the main 
attraction, it rates on a par with "Calamity Jane Meets the Texan" 
and "I Killed Geronimo". 

Sun,-IVIon.: "Mr. Music." Long but amusing Crosby musical. The 
songs are pleasant, and so is Nancy Olson, who is especially at- 
tractive when clad only in a nightgown and tears. Bing is his 
usual casual self, avoiding all work to a degree matched only by 
Mike's sporty beer and pin-ball set. Good light entertainment. 
Mon.-Tue.: "The Men". Marlon Brandos heads a cast made up 
mostly of wounded veterans in this powerful story of the re-ad- 
Justment problems of paraplegics. Certainly one of the best movies 
made last year. Moving, wonderfully acted and directed. Definitely 
in the "don't miss" category.

Amherst Tragedy 

Tragedy struck at Amherst last Saturday. Sabrina's favorite 
sons sallied forth on the field of battle and were dealt a mortal 
blow by the purple-clad stalwarts of Eph Williams in every field 
of varsity endeavor. Lord Jeffrey turned in his grave. 

Now we don't want to seem premature in our congratulations, 
but such feats as were achieved last weekend cannot pass without 
notice. Our hats are off to everyone who had a hand in that delight- 
ful business — to the coaches, the managers, the fans, and most 
of all to the guys who have been sweating out the afternoons all 
winter long for victories like these. It's great to beat Amherst any- 
time, but when we shut them out in varsity competition, it's the 

Now we don't want to go overboard. We know as well as the 
next guy that there is still a lot ahead of us. But so often people 
take it for granted that you know we're behind you, that we wanted 
to be a little articulate. So here's saying we're back of you all the 
way, and although we may not all be around to say so in person, you 
can stake your lite on it.

Ever since football replaced rugby and mechanical plumbing 
replaced the cesspool, the RECORD has conducted an annual cru- 
sade tor new toilets at Weston Field. Editorial boards come and go, but 
the dingy shack and its corroded fumiel remain, slowly gathering 
around it an aura of tradition rivalled only by the Haystack Monu- 
ment and the tomb of Colonel Ephraim Williams. 

The RECORD has tried every conceivable approach in its efforts 
lo prod the administration into action. Such words as "indecc;it", 
"intolerable", "disgusting," and "filthy" have been used. The toilets 
have been called an affront to the college's self-respect. Photographs 
have been printed. There have even been dark hints that any alumnus 
who was compelled to visit the Weston Field facilities between the 
halves of a football game would probably never contribute to a 
Williams fund drive. 

Under the pressure of this vigorous campaign, the administra- 
tion has not even responded to the extent of purchasing a new fun- 
nel. Our only consolation comes from the fact that other colleges 
have similar problems. A recent editorial in the Tufts paper lament- 
ed that '"for over a year now 'The Weekly' has been trying to get a 
traffic light installed at the corner of College and Boston Avenues . . . 
I have written God knows how many editorials about it. "The Weekly' 
has staged demonstrations. A man has been critically injured at 
the intersection in an automobile accident. And what happens'? Noth- 
ing . . . Maybe if everyone here at Tufts who said that they favor 
a traffic light would Just buy a peimy post card ..." 

We are not calling upon the students of Williams to despatch 
postcards to the administration. We feel that any action Is doomed 
to failure. After all, we cannot even point to any critical injuries. 
But with the bright autumn sun and the wildly cheering football 
crowds to inspire us, our enthusiasm for crusading will no doubt be 
rekindled. So don't be surprised if you see an edit on the Weston Field 
toilets this fall.

What's Wrong with Williams? 

Ignoring the fact that Williams is universally recognized as 
the poorest rich man's college in the country, and therefore the 
most deserving, Mrs. H. Sylvia Wilks died recently leaving $2,000,000 
each to Harvard, Middlebury, and Vermont, $1,000,000 to Yale, 
sizeable amounts to M.I.T., Columbia, Fordham, \/a.ssar, St. Pauls, 
Groton, and Kent, but not a cent to Williams. 

Mrs. Wilks was the daughter of fabulous Hetty Green, woman 
financier of Wall Street during the late 19th and early 20th cen- 
tury who is said to have been worth between 100 and 125 million 
dollars. Sylvia herself has accumulated some 70 million, most of 
which she willed to charity.

linal five matches to eke out a 
14-11 verdict at Amherst. 

Jack Ordemann played the part

lictory margin. 

Jeffs Take Lead 
The chances of victory seemed 
■loomy Indeed for the large as- 
sembly of Purple fans when the 
Lord Jeffs piled up a 9-0 lead 
after the first three matches. Bill 
Hartman declsloned Aaron Kut- 
cher 6-0 in the opening 123 lb. 
match and 130 lb. Amherst Cap- 
lain John Beebe took an early and 
sizeable lead over Bill Williams to 
offset a rally by the latter in the 
final period and clinch the 
.second match for the Sabritias. 

Bob Shorb fought a hard match 
with 137 lb. Spike Schellenger. 
iince-defeated Jell star, but fin- 
ally bowed out on a 9-4 decision 
to place the Ephmen in the very 
unenviable position of making up 
a nine point deficit within the 
space of the remaining five mat- 

Seniors Star 
Co-captain Paul Shorb out- 
wrestled 147 lb. Johnny Kunz, 6-0 
to chalk up the first markers for 
the Ephmen. This match proved 
lo be the turning point of the 
meet, for the Purple picked up 
steam in every subsequent match. 
UeLisser, Callaghan. and Carleton 
rallied for nine points between 
them as the Ephmen forged 

Pete DeLlsser came from behind 
lo best 157 lb. Charlie Chapln. 
After nosing out front on a take- 
down, DeLlsser fell behind on a 
Chapln reversal and a two point 
Body-slam penalty called against 
DeLisser. DeLlsser, however, man- 
euveiHid an escape and reversal 
in quick succession to take a lead 
which he held until the end of 
the match. 

Callaghan Wins 
Billy Callaghan, unwilling to 
take uiniecessaiy chances at the 
hands of the talented 167 lb. for- 
mer prep school teammate. King 
Taft, contented himself with a 
decision victory, making the most 
of two scapes and a reversal to 
make the final read 6-2. Callag 
hans's victory .sent the Purple into 
a 9-9 tie with the Sabrinas and 
set the stage for the deciding 
action in the final two matches. 
Al Cleminshaw took a shaky 1-0 
lead over Green Carleton in the 
177 lb. encounter and held it 
until the second period. Carleton 
succeeded in taking the top po- 
sition on a reversal to wm the 
match by a 4-1 margui and to 
send the Purple ahead by a 12-9

Grath take-down. Ordemann 
countered with a reversal in the 
second period to tie up the match 
and an escape in the third period 1 
to ci'ush the Sabrina victory hopes 
by pushing ahead 3-2. McGrath's 
lime advantage was good for one 
point to tie up the match 3-3, but 
in this case the tie meant victory 
for the purple.

Purple Runners End 
Season with Fourth 

Trying their best to emulate the 
stirring examples set by the varsity 
teams, four freshmen squads placed 
Little Three crowns on the line 
against Amherst Saturday and suc- 
ceeded in gaining a split for the 
day. Both the basketball and 
swimming teams emerged victor- 
ious, while the squash and wrest- 
ling groups were going down to 

Frusli Cagers Win 
Inspired by the ball handling of 
Jack Hawkins and the good buc- 
ket work of Herb Smith, Coach 
Bobby Coombs' Freshmen cagers 
regained the Little Three title by 
downing Amherst 52-46 in the 
Ld.sell Gymnasium. 

Despite an opening spurt which 
gave them an eight point lend, 
the Purple could not stop a hard- 
driving Sabrina squad which 
quickly rallied to secure as much 
as a nine point lead midway 
through the second quarter. 

In the second half, however, the 
tide of battle turned as the Ephs 
sparked by the Smith's shooting 
fought their way back to gain a 
40-40 tie with nine minutes re- 
maining and then went on to gain 
a six point lead with two minutes 
to go. A successful stall managed 
to frustrate the frantic Jeffs who 
tried gamely to rally but could 
never close the gap. 

Swimmers Victorious 
With Charlie Douglas and 
Johnny Beard leading the way 
the yearling swimmers also 
dumped Amherst, 38-28, in the 
Lasell pool to successfully defend 
the freshmen swimming title. 

Douglas again stole the show by 
shattering his own freshman 
breast-stroke record set only a 

Competing among the best teams 
in the East, Coach Tony Plansky's 
mile-relay quartet of Bob Jones, 
Jim Haskell and co-captains Andy 
Bacharach and Walt Ziegenhals 
outsped Boston College and took 
a fourth behind Providence, St. 
francis and Springfield at the 
New York K. of C. Games, held 
Saturday night in Madison Square 
Garden. The Ephmen ran about 
3:29.5, compared with a winning 
clocking of 3:28.6. 

Andy Bacharach was outstand- 
ing in the non-invitation sprint; 
starting with an edge of four feet, 
he won all his preliminary heats 
in the 60-yard handicap dash, 
and copped fourth in the final. 
A1.SO competing in this event, at 
the same handicap, were George 
Stembrenner and sophomore Bill 

Steinbrenner took third in his 
section of the highly exclusive 12 
man Invitational 6Q-yard high 
hurdles, which featured both Jim 
Gehrdes and Harrison Dillard, two 
of the world'.s best; while John 
Freese ran a good 2:21 in the 
thousand yard run. 

Schluter Scores Twice 
Against (Colgate Six 

Hanging up two victories in as 
many days, the WiUiams hockey 
team brought a happy ending to 
a season otherwise fraught with 
misfortune. Colgate fell to the 
Purple, 4-1, Friday, and Hamilton 
was up.set, 5-4, Saturday in the 
Hamilton rink. 

With goalie Herb Poole still 
nursing a hip injury. Coach Frank 
Bell called on sophomore Bud Hud- 
son to do the netminding. Hudson 
obliged with a performance that 
was more than adequate. Against 
the Red Raiders he narrowly miss- 
ed a shutout, while in the Ham- 
ilton game he came up with 39 

Schluter Scores Two 
Defenseman John Schluter led 
the scorers against Colgate as he 
shot in a goal in each of the final 
two periods. Preston put the Eph- 
men out on top at 5:22 of the first

of Ihe niylil, Williams swelled 
Ihelr lead to seven points and a 
43-aB advantage. However, Am- 
herst once again threatened as 
Hawkins sunk two free throws and 
Bennett scored on a driving lay- 
up. It was at this crucial stage, 
with Amherst on the upsurge, that 
Uon Speck intercepted a Jell pass 
and tallied on a sensational hook 
shot as two Amherst defenders 
stood by helplessly. 

Amherst Completely Uouted 

With Amherst putting on a fin- 
al minute press in frantic at- 
tempts to get back into the ball 
game, the Ephmen turned the 
contest into an utter rout. Larson, 
Cramer, Sheehy, and Shudt, break- 
ing clear of Jeff defenders, all tal- 
lied on lay-ups to put the game 
"on ice". 

By defeating the Sabrina the 
Williams team was able to main- 
lain its undefeated Little Three 
ranking. The final outcome of the 
Little Three race will now be de- 
termined by next Saturday night's 
contest here at Williamstown 
where the Shawmen have yet to 
suffer a loss. Amherst can only 
nope to tie. 

Larson, Speck Shine 

In the low-scoring first half, it 
was Co-Captain Bob Larson whose 
rebounding, and scoring efforts 
kept his team from falling far be- 
hind. In the second stanza, Lar- 
son added ten more points to bring 
to eighteen his total for the ev- 
ening. In holding Amherst's Ken 
Wright to but six points over the 
entire route, Larson succeeded in 
eliminating an important cog in 
the Amherst offense. 

Don Speck should also be men- 
tioned for offensive honors, con- 
tinually bolstering the Williams 
cause with a host of timely bas- 
kets. Speck turned in a remark- 
able performance in tallying six- 
teen times while holding the high- 
ly-touted Hawkins to thirteen. Co- 
Captain Sheehy's thirteen markers 
gave the Williams forward wall a 
total of forty-seven of the team's 
entire score for the night.

Larson 8 2 


Al Fulkerson, Ted Irwin, and 
Bob Bletter all bowed 3-2 after

and flu-ridden Herb Elish's 3-1 
victory in the fifth brightened an 
otherwise dismal day for the Eplis. 
Sixth man Bob Gulick and Bob

Wrestlers Trounced 

The other Williams defeat of the 
day was suffered by the wrestling 
team which was trounced by a 
20-14 score. The Ephs were never 
really in the match as a strong 
Jeff squad started out by gar- 
nering pins in the first four mat- 
ches, to accumulate all of their 
twenty points. 

After this sad beginning, the 
Cubs more than held their own 
as Dick Gordon, Rolfe Stanly and 
Hugh Murphy all scored on de- 
cisions, and Pete Sutherland was 
awarded five points on a forfeit.

What impressed Finke most 
during his assignment "some-

Air Force, was the utter poverty 
i.nd degradation of the people, 
brought about by total war. Com- 
menting on the squalid housing,

one out of four Korean children 
fail to survive the age of one 
year and that eighty percent of 
the population dies off by the age 
of twenty-seven. 

Even in their misery the Kor- 
ean people retained a trace of 
pride, Finke added. He then told 
of the obvious embarrassment that 
several Korean peasants showed 
while he filmed them raiding the 
American garbage dump. 

While showing scenes of the 
rough mountainous countryside

"Mr. Bell, I heard every word you said — distinctly I" 


On the evening of Mai-ch 10, 1876, 
on the top Hoor of a boardinfi; house in 
Boston, the telephone carried its first 
inteliigihle sentence. 

It seemed like a miracle to our 
grandparents and great-gr-andparents. 
Yet today, the telephone is a part of 
our everyday living. And that is the 
real miracle— the fact that the tele- 
phone has come to itiean so much to so 
many people in so many ways. 

The telephone is an indispensable 
tool of business and government — to- 
day's tremendous job of production 
and defense could not be carried on 
without it. It serves in minor emer- 
gencies anti great ones. It helps main- 
tain family and comtnunity ties. And it 
keeps right on growing and improving. 

Never in the history of the tele- 
phone has it been so valuable to so 
many people as right now.

terrible it is to arrive in a foreign 
country without friends" is his 
only recQllection of the arrival. 

When asked about the biggest 
differences he has noticed be- 
tween the two nations. Bob post-

it, while in America everybody is 
always trying to save it."

Altered Buildings Disguise 
Spring Street of Twenties 

by Ted Terry 

While the student body clamors for acceleration, total rushing, 
and Weston Field latrines, Spring Street moves quietly forward in 
its ever constant change. The hallowed Street, for decades the Great 
White Way of Berkshire night life, has reluctantly submitted to many 
face-lifting alterations ui the past quarter century. 

When our fathers, clad in perforated "semi-brogues" and linen 
knickers, skipped down the autobahn in 1926, the urban setting 
differed considerably from today. Four new buildings have been 
appended to the street, while several others have undergone extensive 

Heading south from Route 2, the alumnus of twenty-five years

Dempsey's. In place of the present 
Pompei Room, the old grad might 
remember a book stoor. where Ray 
Washbume's father-in-law was 
building his literary cartel. The 
site of the new squash courts was 
prosaically occupied by a hard- 
ware store. 

New Deal Brings Post Office 

When the undergraduate and 
his flapper date dined at the Gym 
Restaurant, their meals were not 
brightened by the new facade. 
Across the street the McClellan 
press building housed the Lang- 
rock Clothing Store and the Wil- 
liams Spa, which offered ice cream 
sodas and billiard cues to the Am- 
boy Dekes. Downstairs in this 
edifice students naively peddled 
books, unaware of the approach- 
ing book trust. 

Students received their mail in 
the building now occupied by Sal- 
vy's and the Western Union. A 
grade school stood on the site of 
our New Deal Post Office. Ken's 
Market formerly provided four 
walls for the Reuther sausage 
factory, and for the Williams 
training table, which was con- 
veniently located upstairs. 
Bisqults to Bodies 

Gas Company offices resided 
where the present Beauty Shop 
exists, and the Alumni House was 
privately owned. A blacksmith 
shop at the end of the street 
catered to the campus carriage 
trade, but was moved back and 
renovated for the Gulf Gasoline 

The House of Walsh building 
was operated by a different man- 
agement, and Cabe Pringle's pool 
room held the location of the new 
Homer's dime store. Bakery goods 
were .sold where the Funeral Par- 
lor now receives, while fish could 
be purchased where today Lupo 
I repairs white bucks. 

Phi Sigma Kappa, represented 
by Arthur Levitt '52 and Dick 
Porter '53, defeated the Delta Phi 
team of Pete Vandevoort '51 and 
Al Schlosser '51, in the finals of 
the 1951 Interfraternity Quiz 
Tuesday night, by the score of 75 
to 58. 

The Phi Sig duo took the lead 
early and maintained it through- 
out the hour-long quiz, unham 
pered by the increased difficulty 
of the questions, which were sub- 
mitted by the faculty, rather than 
the staff writers.

For the first time since 1941, 
Williams plays host to the Nat- 
ional Intercollegiate Squash Tour- 
nament this weekend. Representing 
Williams against the entrants of 
sixteen colleges are Rich Allen, 
Dick Squires, Roger Dickin.son and 
Captain Bud Treman. 

Although Harvard's Henry Fos- 
ter and Amherst's Bill Smith are 
rated the top participants in the 
tourney, Allen, number one man 
tor the Ephs, and John Hentz of 
Wesleyan are considered dark 

No One Unbeaten 
Of the leading four contestants, 
■lone owns a clean slate for the 
season, as each has been beaten 
by one of the other three. Poster 
and Smith hold vict.orles over 
Allen, but Smith has also downed 
Foster. In turn, Hent?. u-hlpped 
Smith, and Allen crusheo Heutz 
two weeks ago. 

While these four have perhaps 
tne best chances of emergmg on 
top. the path of the eventual 
victor will not be an easy one. 
Along tlie way such obstacles as 
Blair Murpny of Yale, Cecil North 
and Don Scott of Princeton, and 
and Quain brothers of McGill will 
have to be overcome. 

Squires a Threat 
Williams' Squires can not be 
overlooked either, for on a good 
day he is capable of eliminating 
any of the favorites. Treman and 
Dickinson could also pull an up- 
set somewhere along the line. 

In addition to Poster. Harvard 
has sent three more of its top 
players. Nawn. Ufford, and Clark, 
men who helped the Crimson team 
cop the National Squash Rac- 
quets title, were on the courts 
Friday morning. 

Entering colleges were entitled 
to four men in the tournament, 
but no team trophy is awaixied. 
The tourney is on an individual 
basis with the following colleges 
sending one or more players: Wil- 
liams, Harvard, Princeton. Yale, 
Amherst. Wesleyan, Army, Navy, 
Dartmouth, Trinity. MIT. Penn- 
sylvania. Fordham, McGill, Toron- 
to, and Haveriord. 

The feeling that fraternity 
hazing needs change has been 
registered on at least two college 
campuses in the nation. The Un- 
iversity of Massachusetts Inter- 
fraternity Council and Cornell 
University Alpha Tau Omega 
fraternity have both initiated con- 
structive programs to replace the 
traditional "Hell Week". 

The IPC of the University of 
Massachusetts aims to "elevate the 
standards and position of all fra- 
ternities" on campus. Its first 
step was to name the Initiation 
period "Character Building Week" 
instead of "Hell Week". 

A spokesman for the council 
stated. "We hope to initiate 
trend away from juvenile hazing 
and to Install a program of a 
constructive nature. " Under the 
new rules initiation can in no

/ DEAN Ik 

/ BROOKS ^. , 



During his enrollment at Williams College almost every man 
at one time or another wakes up some morning to find himself so far 
behind in his work that he resolves to spend the whole day in Stetson 
Library and re-establish himself academically. The other day at 
seven-thirty breakfast one of our men confided in us that such was 
his plan for the day. We asked him it he would take a few notes, and 
much later that same night he pressed a few worn slips of paper into 
our hand. 

7:50. . .Standing on the steps before locked doors taking a few last 

drags from a fetid cigarette. Enjoying every puff, knowing full well 

that the smoking facilities in the library are at best depressing. 

8:00. . .Racing for one of the four easy chairs in the library. Made it 

with somebody in my lap. He moved off later grudgingly. 

8:00 - 8:45. . .Checking back issues of magazines. 

8:45 - 9:00. . . Bead the latest on the basketball scandal. 

9: 00... Got out syllabus. 

9:40... Bell rings, must have dozed off. Have to go to classes, will 

be back after lunch. 

12:50.. .Sitting on steps in front of locked doors smoking last 


1:00... Find that assignments require books from the cage, always 

expect to see some wild animal chained In depths. 

2: 00... Still in reseiTed shelf room, overwhelmed by amount that 

needs to be done. 

3: 00... Trip to reference room to use big dictionary. Dropped it on 

toe causing some pain and general disturbance. 

S: 30... Trip into main hall to use catalogue files. Pulled drawer out 

too far. Dropped on other toe. More pain and general disturbance 

plus dirty looks from desk. 

4: 00... Found number of desired book. 

4:05... Entered stacks. 

4:06. ..Left stacks, forgot to write number down.

College Should Form Group 
I'o Meet Prospective Frosh 

(Note: "KICKS AND COMMENTS" is a new column in which 
members of the UECOUU's editorial board and staff will express 
their opinions on subjects ranging in scope and importance from 
Weston Field toilets to the atomic bomb. These opinions are not 
necessarily either opposed to or consistent with the ediorlal policy 
of the RECORD.) 

by Bob Jones '52, News Editor 

If the RECORD had a classified advertising section, this article 
would appear under a "Help Wanted " column. A position is being 
offered for either an organization or a group of volunteers. Some 
means of playing host to prospective students is a definite need on 
the Williams campus. 

Several other schools have very effective methods of meeting this 
need. At Mlddlebury, where the system operates on a budget, 
volunteers introduce the student to his future Alma Mater. At Peiui, 
the student is met by a member of the honorary Kile and Key Society 
while he is still conversing with the dean. He is given a tour of the 
campus, introduced to several professors in tlie department where he 
plans to major, and treated to lunch at a fraternity. Green Key at 
Dartmouth is responsible for meeting visitors. 

**Sub-Freihman Weekend" 

l&si month Wesleyan entertained 150 secondary school seniors 
for a "Sub-Freshman Weekend, " planned jointly by the Cardinal 
Key and the Admissions Committee. After dlimer at the fraternities 
Friday evening, the guests saw movies of the Wesleyan football 
games and heard the college octet. On Saturday the sub-frost 
attended classes, saw a wrestling match, swam in the Wesleyan 
pool, and heard a debate with Mt. Holyoke. Hopeful science majors 
saw a physics demonstration, while those interested in student 
activities visited the radio station and newspaper office. The Key felt 
tliat a successful weekend would insuie the highest quality freshman 
class next year. 

'i'here is no question that sucli a plan would be helpful here," 
Mr. Copeland feels. "Personal contact is tlie best thing as far as the 
prospective student is concerned." Mr. Copeland's present policy is 
to ask a friend of the visitor to care for the guest. The majority, 
however, are strangers in Williamstown. Some plan whereby Mi'. 
Copeland could contact a student quickly and easily, "especially 
if it is instituted by student initiative," would grealy aid him. From 
his calendar. Mr. Copeland knows who will arrive and can plan a day 
in advance. 

Candidates for the Job 

Men in charge of such a job must be Interested in making the 
visitors feel welcome. They should know some statistics about the 
size, expenses, opportunities, and history of the college. The guides 
will have to give a tour of the campus, intr-oduce the student to 
some faculy members, and provide meals and a room when necessary. 
Perhaps someday the college will be able to maintain overnight 
facilities for prospective freshmen. 

There are several possible applicants for the position. The Purple 
Key Society is one candidate. Gargoyle has been recommended, but 
perhaps the less-busy freshman and sophomore class executive 
committees would have more time. Mr. Copeland would appreciate 
help this month when, he says, "traffic is heaviest." Until some full 
time plan is adopted, volunteers could offer their services by giving 
Mr. Copeland a copy of their schedules. 

To make the prospective student's first impression a pleasant 
one, a gesture in friendliness, whether or not the visitor returns, is 
certainly necessary. At any rate, here is a job with unlimited

Frosh Teams Finish Winter 
With Varied Season Records 

Williams freshman teams could 
do no better than an even split in 
their quest for Little Three honors 
durinu the past season, taking 
two championships and allowing 
Amherst to gain a like number. In 
overall competition the frosh came 
up with a respectable 16-9 record. 

Hoopsters Win Nine 
1 Climaxing a highly successful 
season with Saturday's 52-46 de- 
feat of Amherst, the Williams 
freshman basketball team regain- 
ed the Little Three title and fi- 
nished up the year with nine wins 
and two losses. 

Team play was the keynote of 
the Eph yearlings' success, as each 
individual contributed in all de- 
partments. Outstanding, however, 
was Captain Walt Creer's and Jack 
Hawkins' all-round drive and hus- 
tle, supplemented by the shooting 
of Herb Smith and Jeff Miller. 
Dick Hall's work under the boards 
was noteworthy throughout the 

After absorbing 44-22 and 48-18 
early season shellackings at the 
hands of Albany Academy and 

Hotchklss, Bob Muir's cub swim- 
mers rebounded to sweep the Ut- 
ile Three title for the second 
straight year and raise their sea- 
son's record to a 2-2 level. 

Wesleyan became the Eph year- 
lings' first victim by a narrow 36- 
34 margin in a freak contest marr- 
ed by three disqualifications. The 
following Saturday the Purple 
stifled a last ditch Amherst rally 
to outlast the Sabrlnas, 38-28. 

The trio mainly responsible for 
the frosh comeback in league con- 
tests were John Beard and co- 
captalDs Charlie Douglas and Max 
Bogeis. Douglas fashioned an un- 
defeated season, setting a Wil- 
liams freshman breaststroke mark 
of 2:33 for the 200 yard distance 
Rogers in Uie dive and freestyler 
Beard placed well consistently 
during the season. 

Sextet Splits

their last two contests because of 
weather conditions left the frosh 
hockeymen with a meager two

Williams Champs 

Two of last year's champions, 
Paul Shorb and Bill Callaghan will 
attempt to retain their individual 
laurels. Shorb appears as a fav- 
orite in the 147 lb. class although 
unbeaten Myerson presents a dif- 
ficult hurdle. Callaghan, winning 
last year at 167 lb., will try to un- 
.seat Springfield's John Cepuran, 
NE Champion at 157 lbs. 

Green Carleton at 177 lbs. faces 
New England Champ Keller of 
Wesleyan while Pete DeLlsser at

The relay team, which took 
a second out of eight teams at 
Cleveland last year, did not

In notching a 65-60 victory over 
R.P.I, at the Rensselaer Institute 
Gymnasium, Tuesday night. Coach 
Al Shaw's quintet come uncom- 
fortably close to being knocked 
off by a sharpshootlng and spirit- 
ed R.P.I, five. 

Annexing their fifteenth win in 
twenty-one starts, the Ephmen 
barely survived a final period. 
Rensselaer rally which saw a ten- 
point lead dwindle to a mere five 
points in the waning seconds of 
the game. 

"Eizard" Sheehy 
In the final minute of play a 
flun-y of flsticufis broke out with 
both squads rushing to the floor. 
After a brief pushing duel which 
saw "Squid" Sheehy nose out 
"Gaylord" Martin by popular ap- 
proval, the contest settled down 
with law and order reigning for 
the remaining seconds of play. 
R.P.I. Rallies 
After leading 32-26 at halftlme, 
the Eph squad came back to 
stretch their margin to twelve 
points midway through the thii'd 
period. However, with Bulmer and 
Garden tallying on an amazing 
percentage of their shots the 
home team rapidly closed the gap. 
Two baskets by Sirrilla and three 
points by Cardell narrowed the 
Purple lead to three markers with 
but a minute remaining. After the 
Sheehy-Martin "semi-finals", two 
Eph free throws gave Williams its 
margin of victory.

Tonight's encounter with Am-

The final tilt was staged at Ver- 
mont Academy. Close and well 
played throughout, the struggle 
seemed a sure Eph conquest as the 
visiting Purple crew led 1-0 with 
live minutes to go in the third 
period. A lapse in defense, how- 
ever, cost the yearlings two goals 
and the game. Ken Perry, playing 
first defense along with Rod 
Starke, assisted right wing Ted 
Irwin for the lone Eph score. 

Grapplers Drop One 

Although they lost the Little 
Three championship to Amherst 
in the final meet of the year, the 
Williams freshman wrestlers en- 
joyed a successful season, garner- 
ing three victories in a four match 
schedule. Before dropping the 
windup to the Jeffs, the Ephmen 
felled Kent, Mt. Herman and Wes- 
leyan by decisive margins. 

Most of the power throughout 
the season was concentrated in 
the heavier weight brackets, where 
Dick Gordon (157 lbs.), Rolfe 
Stanley 1167 lbs.), and heavy 
weight Pete Sutherland contribut 
ed a total of twelve wins without 
a setback. 

In the lighter divisions Souther 
Barnes, Rod Cover, Bob Hershey, 
George Dimock, Al Kissack and 
Jack Smith handled the work. 
177 pounder Hugh Murphy suffer 
ed his lone setback of the season at 
Wesleyan, where he was toppled 
by last year's Illinois state champ. 

Squash Season Poor 

The squash season ended on a 
sour note for the Eph frosh as 
Amherst rallied in the final match 
to eke out a 5-4 victory, thus 
wresting the Little Three crown 
from Coach Clarence Chaffee's de 
fending champions. 

Only a 6-3 triumph over Wes-

being a winless one for the Purple 
racquetmen. Prior to the Wesley

Manpower Bill Passes Senate, 
Lowers Draft Age to Eighteen 

Act Provides For Two 
Years Active Duty, 
UMT for| Peacetime 

A military manpower bill was 
passed In the Senate last Piiday 
by a large majority, lowering the 
draft age to 18 and requiring ac- 
tive service for 24 months. In- 
cluded in the bill are provisions 
uivlng the president power to de- 
fer 75,000 specialized students 
L'ach year, and to allow students 
ivho are called to complete their 
ncademic year before going Into 

One of the most Important pro 
visions called for In the bill is 
the total depletion of the 19-26 
year age group before 18 year 
olds may be called. The effect 
vvhlcji this would have on college 
enrollment is a serious problem, 
since it means a large drain on the 
upper classes. 

Amendment Defeated 

Before the Senate bill was pass- 
ed, an amendment to set no Urn 
It on the number of specialized 
students to be deferred was de 
feated. thus allowing deferment 
for only a fraction of American 
college students. 

Universal Mllilai-y Training for 
all 18 year olds was also author 
ized. to begin any time in the 
future when the President con 
siders it unnecessary to continue 
draft. The House bill coming up 
for a vote this week is expected 
to oppose this strongly by seeking 
to limit the President's power to 
the extent that Congress must 
support his order for IJMT. 

House, Senate bills differ 

Besides differing from the Sen- 
ale bill on the question of UMT, 
the House bill differs from it in 
other aspects. There seems to be 
no chance that the House will 
lower its minimum draft age from 
18).i to 18, and there is no pro 
vision In the House bill that the 
age group above 18 must be ex- 
hausted before they can be taken. 

Four months of basic training 
followed by seiTlce overseas to 
complete the 24 months of active 
service, the membership in a re 
.serve or national guard after that 
for a total of eight years is called 
for in the Senate bill. The House 
bill differs from this only in the 
length of active service, which is 
set at 26 months. Both bills agree 
on the deferment of ROTC units 
as long as they do satisfactory

AMT to Use 
New Devices 

'rojector, Scene Units 
Employed in 'Othello' 

A projector to cast scenes on the

main technical improvements to 
be used by the Adams Memorial 
Theatre in the production of 
"Othello". In order to preserve 
the continuity of the play, sev- 
eral other special effects will be

scene unit of platforms on three 
different levels and a transparent 
curtain. devices will break 
up the stage into areas for sepa-

Technical Expediency 

To create atmosphere and to 
highlight the action of the drama, 
lighting effects will be used ex- 
tensively. Additional technical 
advantages will make possible be- 
hind-the-scenes changes while 
tile action continues. 

Far more efficient than the 
ancient Linneba^ch equipment 
formerly in use. the new projector 
Is mounted on the light bridge, 
leaving the stage floor free. Since 
scenes can now be painted and

ductions will Include more sets. 

In the case of "Othello", the 
projector will serve to produce 
backdrops. John Cohen '54 has 
painted scenes that will help create 
the mood as well as the setting 
of the drama. The performance of 
"Othello" will be shown March

Cleaning Cartel Grows Under 
Rudnick Reign ot Fifty Years 

George Rudnick Opened 

Second Hand Clothes 

Business in 1902 

by Ted Terry 

Like the Smith Brothers of 
Poughkeepsie, the Rudnick Bro- 
thers of Williamstown have spread 
their fame far beyond the limits 
of their small town beginnings. 
Entrenched in the Berkshires for 
half a century, their family has 
bred a laundry dynasty that 
strikes fear and respect in the 
hearts of its competitors. 

Defying the challenges of neigh- 
boring fii'ms and wildcat student 
ventures alike, the Rudnlcks 
state. "We're so far ahead in 
quality and service that competi- 
tors have a tough time catching 
up with us." The second genera- 
tion of cleaning magnates be- 
lieves that "there isn't a plant in 
the United States that can com- 
pete with us in set-up and equip- 
ment for a town the size ot Wil- 

Sentiment Saves Students 

Since the war several student 
schemes have attempted to break 
the virtual Rudnick monopoly on 
the college cleaning industry. The 
Barons of Spring Street view these 
threats with little fear, "as the 
only competition with students is 
that based on .sentiment. If a stu- 
dent doesn't care how his laundry 
is done, he gives it to his room- 
mate or fraternity brother." 

The firm's founder, George Rud- 

Rudnick and l-'ricnd 

solve the price by a wager. Call- 
ing "odd" or "even", he would then 
nick, invaded Williamstown in 
1902. At first he shuimed the 
laundry field, buying old clothes 
and then reselling thetn. Reminis- 
cent of the triangular New Eng- 
land rum trade. Rudnick the Eld- 
er borrowed money from a harness 
maker in order to buy clothes from 
the students. After .selling his 
second-hand purchases in North 
Adams, he repaid his creditor and 
recorded a neat profit.

reputation as a shrewd, and honest 
businessman. When dealing with

Check-Bouncing PlaguesMi ke: 
'is Ec Department Slipping?' 

by Charles Fisher 

As we were cashing our check in tlie College Restaurant i after 
all, a big weekend was coming upi, we noticed that Mike looked 
pretty glum, but philosophic, as he handed us two limp tens. 

"Do you have anything in the bank?" he asked hopefully. This 
set us back a bit. After all. hadn't we checked just last month, some 
time? So, we stayed to hear about Mikes recent epidemic of bouncing 
checks. "They were two pretty bad weeks. . .but it's stopped now," he 
told us. 

We then asked him it he thought^ 

Williams men ivore going broke. 
They always have the biggest 
•.veekends when they have the 
least in the bank ... It only", he 
sighed, "they wouldn't write checks 
on every blank they have in their 
books. . ." 

We asked him if he'd ever been 
bothered before by bouncing 
checks. "Well ... in '41. these 
boys from Amherst..." Mike's, it 
seems, is the only place on the 
Street, other than the bank, that 
doesn't charge anything to cash 
checks. "I'll .say this much. I've 
never run into any real crook." 
he added philosophically. 
Economic Advice 

"Mr. Despres came in the o- 
ther day. I ask him if he still 
teach economics to the boys. The 
economics department must be 
slipping." added Mike as we start- 
ed for the door. "Remember," he 
finished. "You don't hafta have 
money. You can always cash 
checks at Mike's." 

Hurrying anxiously into the P.O. 
we opened our box. That long 
envelope from home was there! — 
ten minutes until bank closing! 
Clutching our deposit receipt, a 
few minutes later, we reflected 
rather scornfully on those people 
who let their balances fall below 
the danger mark.

Forerunners of Hitler 

U. S. Foreign 
Policy Debated 


An important contribution to 
the success of Hitler's National 
Socialists, the volunteer army units 
of tlie Weimar Republic, was the 
subject of last week's faculty lec- 
ture. "The Twentieth Century 
Freebooters." delivered by Robert 
G.L. Waite of the history depart- 
ment in the Thompson Chemistry 
Laboratory Thursday afternoon. 

Professor Waite's lecture dealt 
with the phenomenon of the Ger- 
man volunteer soldiers between 
1918 and the coming of Hitler, 
tracing the roots of this movement 
back through the nationalistic fer- 
vor and the various youth groups 
of the prc-1914 era and describing 
the many activities, both for and 
against the Weimar Republic, of 
the post-war freebooters. 

Motives of Freebooters 

S,.r2ssing the principles and 
motive.! of these volunteers. Mr 
Waite augmented his lecture with 
many excerpts from letters and 
diaries, illustrating their basic 
nihilism and their rejection of 
the tradition of the western dem- 
ocracies. Tliese men. believing in 
nothing but action, fought for any 
group that would hire them. Their 
activities contributed heavily to 
the chaos of pre-Hitler Germany.

It took top-seeded Henry Poster 
of Harvard just over a half hour 
to win the National Singles Inter- 
collegiate Squash Racquets Cham- 
pionship in three straight games 
from Harvard's No. 2 man, Charl- 
ie Ufford. Sunday afternoon on 
the Williams squash courts. 

Ufford, who had won a gruell- 
ing five game match against Am- 
herst's Bill Smith in the morn- 
ing, could offer no moi'e than tok- 
en resistance as Foster overpow- 
ered him. 15-9. 15-10, 15-8 before 
a packed gallery. 

Foster Great 
Although Ufford was obviously 
fatigued. Foster showed clearly 
why he is top man on Harvard's 
National Champions. Perhaps the 
best part of his game was his re- 
trieving ability. Very tew shots in- 
deed managed to get by him. 

An expert volleyer. Foster play- 
ed in the center of the court and 
blasted his shots from one side 
to the other. This was a particu- 
larly effective type of game to 
play against Ufford. who was 
winded after the first few min- 

Poster took the first game with 
no trouble at all, although there 
were several long rallies included 
in it. Ufford made a definite bid 
for the second game and led at one 
point, 6-0. Foster then came back 
with seven straight points 
Ephs Lose Early 
Although none ot the represen- 
tatives of Coach Clarence Chaffee's 
powerful squash team made the 
quarter-finals, their showings were 
not too disappointing. Captain 
Bud Treman, after receiving a 
first round bye. lost to Yale's Bill 
Lynch 15-7. 17-15. 15-8 in the 
second round. No. 1 Purple player 
Rich Allen. Williams only seeded 
man, advanced through two 
rounds on a bye and a default and 
then was decisively beaten by run- 
nerup Ufford.

round cropper after receiving a 
bye and then trouncing Prince- 
ton's Pete Benoliel in three games. 
Playing against third-seeded Blair 
Murphy, first man on the Yale 
squad. Squires dropped the first 
two games and then put on a 
rally that came within one point 
of tieing up the match. After win- 
ning the third game 15-8, Squires

Only Third of Chest 

Ftind Pledges Paid 

With the March 15 deadline for 
payment of pledge-contributions 
to the WCA's 1950 Chest Fund 
Drive, just one day off. Trea- 
surer Ken Case '53 reports that 
thus far only a third of the 500 
odd pledges have been collected. 

Complicating the pledge col- 
lection has been the departure to 
service of men who promised 
funds. "We'll be lucky if we have 
the $100 pledged us by men who 
have left college by summer," Case 
ruefully admits. 

The December drive. lncluciu..t.

The Senate has acted. Last Friday the Senate voted overwhelm- 
ingly in factor of lowering the draft age to 18. thus starting the ball 
rolling on the final stages of the military manpower bill. By the 
time this issue comes off the presses, the House Armed Services 
Committee should have reported the final version of its own bill. 
Since the bills are expected to differ in important particulars, the 
two measures will go to a joint conference committee for final 

For students everywhere the Senate bill has particular sig- 
nificance. While the Senate deferred to the wishes of the Defense 
Department in lowering the draft age. it did so on the condition that 
loqal boards would induct men under 19 only after calling all those 
available from 19 to 26. The impact of this clause on college students 
is tremendous. It means that college students are perhaps the most 
vulnerable men in the country. In fact, the day before the Senate vote, 
the New York City draft officials armounced that the ranks of eligible 
20 and 21-year-olds was virtually depleted and that they would start 
calling up 19-year-olds by the end of April. 

Two attempts to save the college students were made by Senators 
Gordon of Oregon and Capeharl of Indiana, but both were sub- 
stantially defeated. As It now stands, the Senate bill provides for 
the deferment of 75,000 scientific and technical students. The 
liberal arts student was left out in the cold. 


Those people who advocated exhausting the available manpower 
between the ages of 19 to 26 before calling on the 18-year-olds 
wanted to avoid the opportunity tor favoritism by local boards and 
to prevent leaving the door open for draft dodgers. What they did 
goes much further than that. The present bill stands a good chance 
of cleaning out the small liberal arts colleges. Nearly all the students 
at Williams College in the three upper classes are over 19 years old. 

Already at Princeton President Dodds has announced that there 
will be a retrenchment among the faculty. And Princeton is not 
Williams. Princeton is a big university which is sure to get a good 
share of the deferred students. How many students would Williams 
stand to get of the 75,000 deferred? 

What will happen to the small liberal arts college? Or doesn't 
it matter? Perhaps the country needs scientists and technicians to 
the exclusion of men trained in the humanities. We are not inclined 
to think so. The liberal arts college has done and can do a lot. But 
there are times when it doesn't seem to get either its share of the 
credit or the breaks.

(Wed.-Thu: "Dark City") Liz Scott and a newcomer whose name 
escapes me for the moment combine their diversified talents In this 
underworld melodrama. The result is a happy one, for whatever Liz 
lacks as an actress she more than makes up for with a wide assortment 
of tight white sweaters. The male lead, In his first role, gives a fine 
performance as a man pursued by a nameless nemlsis. The supporting 
cast, in typical underworld "character " parts, all perform admirably. 
Plentiful suspense and good direction in addition to the above 
qualites lead one to the conclusion that the only way this movie 
could have flopped would have been to have Margaret O'Brien take 
Liz's place.

(JBM Can Cut Costs 

by George Kinter 

Campus Business Management 
has been duly thanked for u job 
well done and pushed into the 
background just one year after 
It started its operations, despite 
the fact that it has come no near- 
er to achieving the goal for which 
it was organized, that of saving 
the Williams social units $50,000- 
$75,000 per year in the buying of 

At a time when food prices are 
setting records, a pall of Inertia 
hangs over CBM. The adminis- 
tration is heartily in favor of CBM 
buying food and wishes that ware- 
house facilities were available to 
make it possible. Those social un- 
its which are in CBM realize full 
well that the savings made to date 
are trivial compared to those that 
could be made if CBM bought food, 
and every student would favor the 
reductions that would be possible 
in the board bills. Yet nothing Is 

Need a Warehouse 

CBM needs a warehouse, and 
could have it if all sides were to 
make a concerted effort. Without 
a warehouse the buying of food 
is impossible, and unless it is able 
to buy food, CBM's future seems 
uncertain at best. Neither the 
present emergency nor any dis- 
Lanl plans for centralized eating 
justify the abandoning of CBM. 
X'he college is not going to close 
down, and if centralized eating 
facilities were built, a warehouse 
could be used to supply them. 

The college could not possibly 
finance the building of a ware- 
house, but there is no need for it 
to. CBM could float a loan to build 
the proper storage space, repay- 
ing the loan and the interest by 
operating at a profit for the first 
several years while still saving the 
social units an appreciable a- 
mount. Nor would it be necessary 
for CBM to build a warehouse 
from the ground up, for there are 
existing structures here and in 
North Adams which could be sat^ 
isfactorily converted. 

$13 Board Bill Possible 

Given a warehouse, it is es- 
timated that CBM could reduce 
the Williams board bill from the 
present median of $15.00 per man 
per week to $13.00. These figures 
are based upon the budget of the 
central food buying agency at 
Bowdoin. a college of approxi 
mately the same size as Williams 
and with a similar arrangement 
of social units. The Bowdota or- 

ganization buys only food, but 
CBM would, in addition, continue 
to buy household dry goods, mak- 
ing greater savings in this line 
than it does now by virtue of the 
fact that it could buy in greater 

rwo plans of distribution are 
possible. CBM could either handle 
all the billing of the individual 
social units members through the 
college treasurer's ofllce, as they 
do at Bowdoin. or It could act as 
a wholesaler, billing the fraterni- 
ties monthly and allowing them to 
handle their own finances as they 
do now. 

Staff of Six 

The foimer plan is used at Bow- 
doin because the college makes 
the initial investment at the be- 
ginning of the school year to 
stock the warehouse and It is thus 
guaranteed repayment. This plan 
has all the advantages of cen- 
tralized bookkeeping. Under the 
second plan, which has the advan- 
tage of greater flexibility in the 
billing of individual members, the 
original capital investment re- 
quired for stock could be met by 
a loan taken out by CBM. 

In either case, the operation of 
the warehouse would be the same 
Daily orders of foodstufls would be 
taken and daily deliveries made 
To function in this manner CBM 
would need a permanent staff of 
approximately six, including a 
purchasing agent for the ware 
house, a supervisor to take the 
social unit's orders, a truck driv 
er and a warehouse man to pre- 
pare the orders, and secretaries. 
As at Bowdoin, the houses would 
be assessed to cover the operat- 
ing costs. 

Can Be Done 

Despite the apparent size of op- 
erating costs, the savings previous- 
ly mentioned have taken such 
costs into consideration. At Bow- 
doin, where board bills are $12.50 
per week, a net profit of 1.5% Is 
reported. 60'i of the income is used 
to purchase food, and 38.5% for 
operating costs. This latter figure 
includes 5% to the college for ad 
ministration and bookkeeping. 

Williams could have a similar 
working plan if those involved in 
CBM. both students and adminis- 
tration, could be stirred to action. 
Admittedly, the duplication of 
kitchen facilities and wages is a 
large cost factor here, but Bow- 
doin has the same problem and 
has been able to keep costs down 
to $12.50 per student per week and 
still retain the highly desirable 
small group eating. Why cant 
Williams take a step In this dir-

With the Shawmen holding a 
40-29 advantage, Amherst's at- 
tack opened up early in the sec- 
ond session. Hawkins and Magee 
combined for four. Lay-ups by 
Fisher and Weaver with Fisher's 
two charity tosses added six more 
to the Sabrina total; and within 
a matter of two minutes, the Wil-

struggling to preserve their lead. 
Fatal Ten Minutes 

The final blow fell at the seven

in front, 48-47; never again were 
they headed. In the final four

Foster as usual stood in the mid- 
dle and let his opponent do the 
rumiing. Dickinson responded by 
running fast enough to take the 
third game of the match, 15-13. 
This was all he could do though, 
as Foster's superior strokes were 
good enough to win the other three 
games 15-9, 15-8, 15-8. 

Smith vs. Ufford 

Although Foster received the 
victor's trophy lor beating Ufford, 
an assist should go to Bill Smith, 
top Sabrina entry, who gave Uf' 
ford a very hard time in the semi, 
finals. Smith, seeded second, came 
back strong after losing the first 
two games and ran the match to 
five games before losing out 15-8 

This was undoubtedly the most 
exciting and closely contested of 
the important matches, 
Ilentz Upset 

First of the seeded players to 
fall was Wesleyan's John Hentz, 
who displayed none of the form 
with which he downed Smith earl- 
ier in the season. Hentz, ranked 
fifth, showed very little of any- 
thing as he lost to Joe Clark of 
Harvard in three games. Clark 
then had to default to Army's Bob 
King because of a back injury. 

King did as well as Army's first 
man Johnson, progressing to the 
quarter-finals and almost pulling 
a major upset in his match with 
Blair Murphy. King was not rated 
highly enough to receive a bye in 
the first round, but easily whipp- 
ed Toronto's Bill Brewer in three 
Barnes. From there he went on to 
take another three game match 
from Steve Foster of Dartmouth, 
winning all the games 15-10. 
Clark's default left him face to 
face with Murphy in the quarter- 

King proved immediately that 
Murphy was going to have to play 
good squash to beat him. The 

end of the first game found Mur- 
phy on the short end of a 16-14 
score. Settling down. Murphy then 
took the next two games, but King 
evened nuitters up with a 17-15 
victory in the fourth. Murphy fin- 
ally moved into the next bracket 
with a fifth game 15-10 win. , 
Murphy vs. Foster ] 

The Foster-Murphy match pro- 
vided none of the thrills of the 
Ufford-Smlth meeting. Poster 
routed Yale's pride rapidly with- 
out losing a game. Murphy didn't 
even come close, losing 15-7, 15-7, 

Although there were no official

Harvard obviously was the domin- 
ating squad. Yale and Army also 
did well, each placing two men in 
the quarter-finals. Yale also ad-

licrinil smallei- colleges to use 
Ireshmeii on varsity teams, a 
lule wliidi will BO into effect im-

Schools which are eligible for 
I his temporary leniency are those 
whose male enrollment is less than 
1 ,01)0, or those whose sophomore, 
junior and senior classes total less 
Ihan 650. Under the impending 
draft law it appears that Williams 
will fit into both categories with- 
out any dilliculty. 

Williams I'oliry Undecided 

According to Prank Thorns '30, 
Director of Athletics, Williams 
will probably apply for permis- 
sion to freshmen on the var- 
sities. However no definite policy 
can be established until Presi- 
dent Baxter, the coaches and the 
Atliletic Council have been con- 
sulted. Furthermore, it is essen- 
tial that unanimity be established 
among the Little Three. 

If Williams adopts this policy, 
it will not go into effect until 
I he fall. During the summer the 
Athletic Department plans to 
have .some intercoUcBiate pro- 
gram organized on an informal 
basis, but the ma.ior sports com- 
IK'tition will be on the intramural 

I'urple Teams Brnelit 

Under its accelerated program 
Williams will gain greatly from 
this ruling, because accelcratert 
students who will only attend col- 
lege for three seasons oi athletics 
will be able to spend three years 
on the varsity, while athletes in the 
ROTC program who don't attend 
the .summer .session will be avail- 
able for four years of varsity play. 
Compromise Accepted 

Ivy League Schools Harvard 
Princeton, Yale and Columbia 
look the lead at the conference 
in opposing freshman eligibility. 
Originally it was propo.sed to al- 
low all colleges in the ECAC to 
lilace freshmen on varsity teams. 

This preliminniy plan was de- 
feated by the opposition of the J 
Ivy League, but the small colleges, 
who are hardest hit by the de- 
mands of the draft, pressed 
through the compromise solution 
favoring them.

Charged with damaging the fair 
name of the University, Yale's 
traditional Derby Day, a festival 
celebrated annually for the last 
32 years, was vetoed for 1951 by 
an 8-6 vote of the Undergraduate 
Activities Committee. The deci- 
sion was the result of complaints 
registered against excessive stu- 
dent revelry during the celebra- 

A scrie"^ of cre^v races on the 
Housatonic River, the original ex 
cuse offered for Derby Day festi 
vities, also were cancelled by the 
Committee. The chief point of 
contention lodged by the officials 
of the Housatonic towns of Derby 
and Shelton was the fact that the 
Eli's were in the habit of indis- 
criminately squirting beer from 
water pistols at fellow students 
and townspeople alike. No popular 
drive against this feature, how- 
ever had been reported from the 
local citizenry.

The attention centered on the

ney recalled to many Spring 
Streeters the similar excitement 
attendant upon the construction of 
tlie building thirteen yeai's ago. 

At the lime of the original gift, 
students had long been calling for 
a new winter sports plant. In 1936 
a rally in Chapin Hall netted 
$1500 in student pledges. The 
$150,000 needed was donated by 
three trustees. John P. Wilson

Bent 01.

Harvard Dorm Blazes Twice 
In 48 Hours; Arson beared 

by Dick Porter 

When the second blaze in four days was finally put out in Har- 
vard's Claverly Hall, firemen decided thai they had had enough. 
They turned the case over to Cambridge police who called the $65,000 
March 3 fire and the smaller blaie which occurred two days later 

Although the of the flames is still "undetermined origin", 
investigators revealed that they had several suspects in mind and 
suggested that students might be involved. 

According to Detective Patrick Ready of the Cambridge Police 
Department, the location of the minor fire of March 5 in an out-of- 
the-way closet on the first floor of Clavery indicates that the .iob was 
carefully planned. 

John Collins, the somewhat ex-^ 
asperated Cambridge Fire Chief, 
has officially handed the case over 
to the State office. When asked for 
a statement, he said it was his 
personal theory that someone was 
trying to burn the whole building 

Council Wary 

City officials are eyeing Harvard 
a little more warily since the out- 
break of arson. One of the city 
councillors. Edward Sullivan, in- 
troduced a resolution that "all 
the fire exits in Eliot be checked" 
Ijefore the council attends its an- 
nual dinner there. 

The motion was defeated de- 
spite Sullivan's claims that he 
had proposed the order "in all 
seriousness". The council did pass 
a motion dii'ecling the City Mana- 
ger to inspect all University build- 
ings for "means of egress in 
of fire." 

The council isn't the only group

blem. Gardner Lindsay, lecturer

Tentative plans for a combina- 
tion Student Union-Garfield Club 
building under the same roof but 
physically separate and with sep- 
arate entrances, were revealed to a 
group of Club executives at an In- 
formal meeting Wednesday even- 
ing in President Baxter's home. 
Sketches for the new structure 
are being drawn up by the firm of 
Perry, Shaw and Hepburn of Bos- 

The group, included Dean Brooks 
and Professors Burns, de Lahigue- 
ra, and Stoddard, heard President 
Baxter describe the building as 
essentially a new Garfield Club 
without dormitory facilities un- 
der the same roof, but with a stu- 
dent union room and snack bar 
attached. Approximately four-fifths 
of the new building would be de- 
voted to the Garfield Club. Gar- 
field upper classmen would be 
housed in an ad,iacent dormitory. 
Central Kitchens 

Central kitchens, whose refrig- 
erating plant could be used by both 
units are one feature of the plan. 
Mr. Baxter explained that such 
design would allow for the conver- 
sion to an all-college dining hall 
if in years to come the college 
should ever adopt a system of 
common eating. 

In discussing the plans, Mr. 
Baxter announced that he has 
asked Richard DufBeld lo appoint 
a UC committee to study the pro- 
posals and would welcome sugges- 
tions from the executive officers 
of the Garfield Club. 

Club President Harold Kahn '52 
pointed out that, although improv- 
ed facilities for the Club would be 
welcomed, the plan presented 
certain problems that the Club 
would like to discuss. He felt that 
objections would be raised against 
a common building for both units. 
Proposals Described 

According to the sketch that 
Mr. Stoddard made to explain the 
problem submitted to the archi- 
tects, the Student Union wing 
be one story high, while the Club 
facilities would include a large 
dining room for normal attend- 
ance of 200. a lounge or lounges 
appropriate for the same number, 
together with a handsome game 
room, offices, and storage space. 
Williamsburg Architects 

Tlic architects have also been 
asked to design plans for the re- 
storation of West College. The 
same firm drew up the plans which 
were proposed for a new dormitory 
with attached facilities for the 
Garfield Club on the Greylock site 
several years ago. They are famous 
for the architectural work in re- 
storing Williamsburg. Virginia. 

Financially, the plan for ad- 
.joining units offers large savings 
over separate units, Mr. Baxter 
said. He also feels thai moving 
into new quarters would do much 
to improve Club .spirit. He was 
happy, he said, to describe the ar- 
cliitecturnl problems which he 
lioped would correct any errone- 
ous conceptions the students 
might liave about the size of the 
Student Union.

Letters to the Editor 


To the Editor of the WiUiams RECORD: 

Now that the Sterhng Committee has made it perfectly clear 
that it will not recommend guaranteed membership, the vast amount 
of information about reform activities with which the campus was 
continuously supplied, has become a news blackout. The fact that 
only the decision has been announced, and none of the reasons for 
the majority opinion or the minority votes, has aroused the curios- 
ity and suspicions of many people. In the absence of information, 
rumors begin to fly freely, for discussion cannot be turned off like 
a faucet, tho news can be withheld. 

As the rumors circulate, they become more and more far fetched 
and slanderous. One person has the so called "inside dope" that no 
one had any intention of listening to the Sterling Committee from 
the beginning, but that it was merely set up to rubber stamp the 
decisions already made. Another has it "confldentially" that the 
powers that be forced the Sterling Committee to back down from its 
originally favorable attitude toward guaranteed membership, to its 
wishy-washy final recommendation to make no recommendation con- 
cerning guaranteed membership. 

Positive Statement Needed 

Both these statements seem to me quite unfoimded, but in the 
absence of any positive statement to the contrary by either the 
Sterling Committee itself or the college administration, few people 
are in a position to refute them. A positive statement from the 
administration is needed now, to explain .just what was done, and 
why the particular decisions were made. 

At the same time there is much seemingly well founded criticism 
that should be answered. Early last semester, President Baxter ex- 
plained the functions of the Sterling Committee to a full col- 
lege meeting, and stated that he would fight for whatever the students 
decided that they wanted. In the two votes held, the majority of 
the student body voted for guaranteed membership, though they did 
not select one favorite plan from the four presented. Nevertheless, 
the majority expressed its will on two separate occasions, and it 
was disregarded, though it had a promise of support. This seems to 
be a negation in action of the democracy we praise in words. It 
might very well be in the best interests of the college, but if so, 
we should be told that, and why. This recalls to mind the similar 
episode in 1946, when the Shriver Committee voted for some reforms 
and changes and was similarly disregarded. There is probably an 
explanation for this also. But in any case, the rationale behind the 
decisions to disregard the majority vote should be presented to the 
student body. If not, a portion of the college community will lose 
its faith in the integrity and honesty of the administration. 

What Is Going On? 

Probably the most galling aspect of the entire matter, is the 
lack of faith and trust in the student body exhibited by the adminis- 
tration. If not guaranteed membership, what then? The question 
is valid, and in the absence of answers, the rumors again fly. Some 
have it that a new Garfield Club will be built, though few seem to 
know just where and of what it will consist. It may have a college 
Commons tied to it, according to a recent letter to the RECORD, 
but what will that consist of, and where'? 

One rumor is that the new Club and the Commons will be housed 
in one building on the present site of the Old Faculty Club. This 
may be a good or a bad location. But it seems perfectly obvious that 
if the Club is to give up its present inadequate facilities it must be 
assured of getting more, not less, facilities. At the minimum, the new 
Club should have a dining room for 200 to 250 people, a large 
kitchen, three lounges, rooms for housing 60 members, a library, a 
game room, a bar, a lawn in front or back for playing ball, and an 
adequate parking lot. If the Club is offered anything less, it would 
be foolish to accept. To my untrained eye, it seems Impo.ssible to 
do this on Hoxey Street without building a skyscraper which would 
be an architectural monstrosity on this campus. Certainly there are 
better sites, I think: in front of Greylock, by the Haystack monu- 
ment, between the A.M.T. and the Faculty Club, or between the 
President's house and opposite the Congregational Church, to name 
a few oflhand. 

Must Consult Students 

But before anything is done, before a nickle is spent on plans or 
drawings, the student body should be consulted. To my knowledge, 
neither the student body as a whole, nor the Garfield Club have been 
informed of any plans afoot for either the Club or the Commons, 
and everyone has an interest in both. They should be discussed 
freely before decisions are irrevocably or embarrassingly made. The 
student body should be consulted on what is being done for it. and 
not be presented with a fait accompli to be justified and rationalized 
by a U.C. committee after it is too late to do anything 

Most of us realize the tremendous devotion of the administration 
to Williams College and to the students. We vaguely understand some 
of the sacrifices they have made, in many cases, even in turning 
down jobs with more money and more prestige. But we feel that this 
devotion will be misguided and unappreciated if we are not consulted 
in decisions which effect us and our posterity. We should be taken 
Into the confidence of the college. We have been taught well, and 
we have learned our lesson. We reject paternalism; we demand en- 
lightened democracy. Won't the administration teach us by example 
as well as by word? Let's get together to .solve college problems 
rather than working at odds. An Informed college will be a coopera- 
tive one and a happier place In which to live and work.

Editors note: This letter was received before President Baxter's 
release of the Information on the Student ITnlon. 

The Editor's Corner 

In the last week, education's new "boy wonder", President Paul 
Wagner of Rollins College, has done a lot to confirm the view widely 
held about that school. Backed by the trustees, Mr. Wagner dismissed 
a third of the faculty iii an "economy drive" which his critics assert 
was merely a means of installing a sweeping new plan of teaching 
through audio-vi"ual aids. 

Now to those of us who have often considered Rollins as hardly 
representative of the small liberal arts college, this may appear as 
a big joke, and, of course, it is. Nevertheless, the sort of publicity 
that Rollins gives to liberal arts colleges can do nothing but harm 
them. There are plenty of people who seriously believe that a liberal 
arts education may be a pleasant experience, but they add, when you 
get right down to it. it really isn't worth very much. It looks like Mr. 
Wagner is doing his darndest to make those arguments stick. 

In a recent magazine article Mr. Wagner was quoted as saying. 
"If our teachers intend to compete with movies, television, and comic 
books, they will have to use the tools of our times". We hasten to 
add that the day the liberal arts college, and we don't feel represented 
by Rollins, has nothing better to do than compete with movies, tele- 
vision, and comic books, it might Just as well close up shop. 

For the past week or two, representatives of various companies 
have come to Williams to interview the seniors and talk about their 
businesses. According to reports circulating back, the response to these 
men has been anything but overwhelming. 

Now it's hard to tell a fellow who's going into the service for two 
and maybe three years that he should look ahead to the time when 
he's out of uniform and ready to compete in the business world. 
But the facts speak for themselves. Many of these companies are 
willing to hire men and promise him future employment even if he 
can be with them for only a very limited time. Likewise, as long as 
that period in the service may seem now, it will be no time at all before 
one is out looking for a job. Even if nobody wants to commit himself 
for the future, it can't hurt to get your foot in the door now. 



Two weeks ago we received a letter from a young lady of our 
acquaintance inviting us to visit her for a weekend of cocktail 
chatter, the big weekend of the winter term she told us. We accepted 
forthwith and made the trip down Saturday afternoon. 

"I've got you a room," she said. 

"Thank you," we said. 

After supper we went to see the room. Our young lady accom- 
panied us to the front door and from there we were on our own. It 
was a yellow house with a large porch and a glass front door with 
nice old lace curtains. Locating no noise device, we walked into the 
dingy interior, yellowish walls with varnished woodwork. On the 
left was a staircase. Tacked on the bannister was a card with a list 
of girls' names and room numbers. We discovered our young lady's 
date had been assigned to room number seven. Room number seven 
was dirty, lit by one window without lace curtains and a few dusty 
bare bulbs. But worse yet, there was only one bed. a double bed. As 
we were opening the window we noticed a small card on which was 
neatly written - "IF YOU OPEN THE 'WINDOW, PULL UP THE 
ING TURN ON THE HEAT REGISTER." We complied willingly, 
since the room seemed stuffy. In the bathroom we discovered more 
cards with neatly written instructions. 

After a stimulating evening, we returned quite late to the room 
and naturally wandered into the bathroom. Shortly we discovered 
a rather serious shortcoming in the most important facility. We 
read through all the cards but found none that shed any light on 
the situation. In a moment of impulsive rage we took one of the cards, 
turned it over and printed - "MECHANICAL FAILURE". We tacked 
it to the offending machine. Gritting our teeth, we walked back to 
the room and found a sleeping form, gurgling happily, spread over 
most of the bed. The window was closed and the heat register on. 
We immediately rectified this difficulty, and removing as few clothes 
as possible we crept in beside the unknown partner, pushing him 
gently to the far side of the bed. We have a misty remembrance of 
spending most of the night pushing him to the far side of the bed. 
When we woke in the morning he was gone, toothbrush and all. 

In the morning, as we fervently hoped, the situation In the 
bathroom had been relieved, and standing beside the guilty machine 
was a large plumber's friend. Tacked to the handle was a large card- 
— "USE THIS". 

As we were leaving we spied a card on the table in the hall. 
was time to assert our independence towards our unknown hostess. 
So we swung the door hard shut, and the nice old lace curtains flut- 
tered in the wind.

Five miles from Smith on the rood to Amherst 







— by George Steinbrenner 

■Oichlds and Onions" - there 
you have It - the wliole basket- 
ball season In a nutshell. It was 
a tough way to end a season, on 
the short end of the last three 
contests, and there are still some 
who cannot re-eoncUe the three 
losing causes against Amherst, 
Tufts, and Rhode Island. 

From this vantage point there 
are several points which bear con- 
sideration in trying to explain the 
sad ending. The basketball sea- 
son was Just too long, and the 
Shawmen reached their peak in 
the middle of February with five 
wins In a row. Had the Williams 
schedule consisted of less than 22 
games, say 18 as did the solredules 
of Amherst and most other col- 
leges our size, the team may not 
have been so "saturated" with bas- 
ketball when the Amherst game 
and the tournament rolled a 
round .... 

Many argue than an extensive 
Xmas vacation schedule is neces- 
sary, because a lay-oil so soon 
after the season has oommenced 
would make it necessary for the 
learn to start all over again after 
the Xmas recess. There may be 
a great deal of truth in the "starl- 
ing over" part of this theoiy, but 
I believe thatlnevitably the team

One might easily say that the 
2-3-1 record compiled by the var- 
sity wrestling team this season is 
not a fair indication of the Pur- 
ple mat performance this winter. 
Not only does the record fail to 
mention that the two victories 
represented triumphs over Wes 
leyan and Amherst lo clinch the 
Little Three Wrestling Crown for 
the third year in succession, but 
It also fails to mention the sec- 
ond place standing earned by the 
Ephmen against strong competi- 
tion in the New England Inter- 
Collegiate Tournament at Med- 
ford, Mass.

mg the coveted Coaches' Trophy, 
indicative of the outstanding per- 
formance al the New England

feat by annexing the 157 lb. crown

Purple Supremacy 
In spite of these facts the Pur-

only after Green Carleton for- 
feited his match as a result of a 
head injury and Billy Callaghan 
was pinned in the waning minutes 
of the match by Eastern AAU 
Champion Dana Eastham in one 
of the most exciting matches of 
the year. Likewise the Coast Guard 
meet, which marked the second 
setback of the season, was not de- 
cided until the final match. 

Over the span of five years since 
the New England Wrestling Tour- 
nament started, the Purple have 
never placed lower than second. 
After taking the runner-up posi- 
tion to MIT in the first post-war 
meet, the Ephmen have taken 
three successive first places and 
one second place. Such conclusive 
superiority can hardly be bettered.

with the recovery of the Little

Truman May Order Deferring 
70% of All College Students 



I'resent Kulc of Druft 

High Enough to Allow 

New Plan'ti Adoption 

President Truman may issue an 
executive older this week, wlilcli 
will defer almost 70 percent of col- 
lege students. This order will be 
in extension of the plan proposed 
Saturday by the Director of Sel- 
ective Service, Major General Le- 
wis B. Hershey. 

According to the order, local 
Iraft boards would defer all 
ircslimen who are in the upper 
half of their class scholastically, 
nvo thirds of all sophomores, and 
iluee quarters of the juniors. Al- 
so deferred would be all high 
.chool and colleKc students who 
pass a standardized national test 
witli a mark of 70 or better. 

ICcasuns for Move 

There are a number of reasons 
for this move by the President. 
First, the draft or threat of draft 
will .so deplete the colleges that 
iliey would have great trouble 
operating. According to high mili- 
lary sources, the draft and enlist- 
ments are bringing in as many men 
as the armed services can ab.sorb 
at this time. Finally, they are de- 
sirous of establishing a pool of 
brighter students, allowing them 
to get more out of their books. 

A military manpower bill has 
been presented to the House by 
ihe House Armed Services Com- 
mittee which calls for draft at 
181/2 years of age for 26 months 
i>r active service, a variation from 
Ihe Senate bill, which has pa,ssed 
that group, stipulating a minimum 
age of 18 and .service of 24 months. 
In Ihe Hou.sp proposal, the tntnl 
military service is six years, the 
difference being .served in a re- 
serve or National Guard unit after 
active service is completed, while

Gladden graduated from Wil- 
liams in 1859. He joined the min-

after a minister in North Adams. 
He then moved to Springfield, and 
finally to Columbus, Ohio, where 
he did most of the work for which 
he is famous. Durin<; this iJeriod, 
he published a multitude of books, 
many of them dealing with the 
great new problems raised by the 
rapid rise of big business and he 
was continually pressing the 
church to take an interest in 
these affairs. 

Ted Jones, president of the new 
organization, is the grandson of 
"Golden Rule" Jones, mayor of 
Toledo during the 1880's, and a 
close friend of Gladdens.

President James P. Baxter, 3rd, 
and Director of Admissions Fred- 
ciick C. Copeland attended the 
national conference on acceler- 
ation of the American Council on 
Education in Washington, D.C. 
March 19-20. Shortly before this 
meeting the Council released a 
survey in which 55 per cent of the 
205 colleges polled opposed accel- 
eration as "neither nece.ssary nor 

Only 7 per cent of the insti- 
tutions reported that the compul- 
.sory speed-up of all student's 
courses was considered necessary. 
The remaining 38 per cent favored 
acceleration with optional sum- 
mer sessions. The poll was used 
to gather preliminary information 
for the meeting of the council. 

Acceleration Devices 

The questionnaire asked for 
suggestions on the best devices 
for acceleration. Among those of- 
fered were: new summer terms, 
longer or more intensive summer 
sessions, and allowing highly qual- 
ified students to advance more 
rapidly than others. 

No institutions answering the 
questionnaire favored reducing the 
requirements for college grad- 
uation. Only 7 per cent of 
answering favored admitting stu- 
dents to college before completing 
the normal high .school course. 

Although the colleges polled were 
unanimously willing to cooperate 
; in anyway deemed necessary 
should the U.S. become involved 
in a global war, those opposing 
acceleration felt that "accelerated 
programs during World War II 
were educationally bad for the 
students and harmful to the 

On Education 

Need for Freedom 
Stressed in Talk 

Asserting that without freedom 
of education "no other liberty 
could long survive". President 
.James P. Baxter 3rd presented 
the final lecture in a series at 
Swarthmore College, under the 
auspices of the William Cooper 
Foundation, Sunday evening. 

Picceeded in previous weeks by 
Henry Commager, Robert Carr, 
Walter Gelhorn, Zecharaih Chafee, 
and Curtis Bok, Baxter's lecture, 
entitled "Freedom of Education", 
closed the series on national .se- 
curity and civil liberties. 

Academic Freedom Essential 

That totalitarian rulers have 
been quick to grab control of the 
educational system is proof of 
its importance to the "spirit of 
liberty", Baxter explained. He then 
declared that American academic 
freedom has proven itself to be 
essential " of its genetic 
relationship to the other free- 

Baxter traced the "tragic" at- 
tempts to curb academic freedom 
in tlie United States and showed 
the disastrous affects this could 
have through examples of such 
actions in Fascist and Communist 

"Red Brush" Smears 

The real difficulty with curbs 
on academic freedom today is that 
they will not only suppress Com- 
munist propaganda, but that 
they also tend to prevent justi- 
fible liberal criticism by non- 
Communist teachers who fear loss 
of their ju'os. ' The history of 
attempts to smear American lib- 
erals with the red brush." Baxter 
continued, "is long enough to put 
us on our guard ".

Mud Problem Still Unsolved 
Despite Attempted Remedies 

Three Colleges Seek to Stop 
Cheating; Favor Honor System 

One of the oldest and most honored Institutions on the Williams 
campus is the honor .system, which has succeeded in keeping cheat- 
ing to a minimum on the campus since it was installed in 1896, 
The effectiveness of this system is .seen, not only in the results here 
at Williams, but in some of the opposite results seen at colleges which 
follow other systems. 

Such seats of higher education as Brown, the University of New 

Hampshire, and Springfield, have ail indulged in lengthy articles 

recently, dealing in general with the evils of their exam systems. 

and more particularly with some of the ingenious and intriguing 

ways students have developed to circumvent the efforts of their 

teachers to discourage cheating. 

Cheating Easy 

At Springfield, one student gave 
a good example of the state in 
which students had fallen. He re- 
ceived permission from the dean 
to cheat his way through an ex- 
am. Just to show how easily this 
could be done. When the Procter's 
back was turned, he slipped a 
.series of crib sheets between the 
pages of his exam book. After 
cheating without Interruption for 
the remainder of the exam, he 
disposed of his notes by slipping 
them under his pants belt, and 
buttoning his coat over them. 

Similar reports came from the 
Universitj of New Hampshire, 
where it was ret>orted that stud- 
ents often paid from five to fif- 
teen dollars to have someone sub- 
stitute for them. This was especial- 
ly prevalent in language exams 
where a language major would 
"help out". Due to the large ex- 
am classes. It was extremely dif- 
ficult to spot such substitutions. 

The students at New Hampshire 
were loudest in the condemnation 
of the proctering systems. They

Amplified tiiis year by the "snow 
and shine" cycle of Williamstown 
weather, the problem of mud and 
puddled sidewalks which peren- 
nially confronts Williams men in 
Marcli has once again complicated 
intra-campus travels. 

Every vear. when the campus 
becomes as spotted with these 
muddy oasis, tentative solutions 
are offered from all quarters. In 
previous Marches the UC. Ad- 
ministration, and Letters to the 
Editor have presented theories to 
no avail. 

Sidewalk Fails 

The most recent attempt was 
made by the "Mud Committee" of 
the UC two years ago when It 
suggested that the College put in 
a new sidewalk from Morgan to 
the Chemistry Building in order 
to alleviate the ankle-deep mud 
problem there. 

Agreement was reached on this 
solution and the Administration 
soon had a walk installed. Every 
body was happy— but not for long. 
In each succeeding spring, most 
of the sidewalk has been under at 
least two inches of water. 

'Cinder Day' 

Tills unfortunate experience 
impressed the students with the 
fact that perhaps the 40-year old 
problem was not so easily disposed 
of. Discussion of this perennial 
problem broke into print soon after 
the turn of the century when 
students became aware that their 
journeys between classes became 
increasingly difficult as March 

The first effort to dispel the 
impediment was the proclam- 
ation of a "Cinder Day", during 
which everyone ran around cover- 
ing the pools of mud and water 
with cinders. For unpublished 
reasons this theory was soon dis-

In connection with this inter-

''' Nationalism" 
Goodell Topic 

Lei'turer Link»< (Jernian 
I topia with "Treiie" 

" 'Treue' - a National Ideal" 
comprised the theme of Assistant 
Professor Robert C. Goodell's lec- 
ture in tlie Tiiompson Memorial 
Chemistry Laboratory Thursday. 
The talk was the sixth in tlie 
faculty lecture series. 

An untranslatable Gernian word, 
"Treue" symbolizes a Utopian con 
cept of national thouglit and e 
motion that threads throughout 
most of Germany's history. In 
its .simplest definition "Treue" 
signifies trutli, worship, obedience, 
and above all an intense love of 
the Fatherland. 

"Treue" Through History 

Tracing the ideal of "Treue" 
through liistory, Mr. Goodell dem- 
onstrated how the word changed 
in connotation "to suit national 
feeling at various times". Never 
varying in its basic significance 
however, "Treue" first became a 
national virtue under the Hu- 
manist influence. 

The .sense of the ideal lay in- 
active for awhile until 1770. only 
to flourisli once again under the I 
Romantic period of the early 19th | 
century. "Its usage developed here! 
from Germany's efforts at lib- j 
eration and constitution ", con- 1 
tiiiued Mr. Goodell. 

"Treue" Under Hitler 

After the German socialists had 
adapted Treue" as their watch- 
word, the final era in which the 
concept resumed dominance was 
under the regime of Hitler. The 
Nazis stressed "Treue" to mean 
absolute faith. 

The Undergraduate Council re- 
gistered almost imanlmous sen- 
timent against fraternity rushing 
this June in its regular weekly 
meeting Monday evening. To meet 
the subsequent problems arising 
from this action UC president 
Richard Duffleld '52 announced 
the appointment of four commit- 
tees to study the situation. 

These committees will submit 
recommendations to the UC at its 
first regular meeting after spring 
vacation on campus diflTiculties a- 
rising from acceleration. 

The Housing Committee, Don 
Proeb '52, Ed Sikorovsky, and Paul 
Pukui '53, will report on quarters 
for upperclassmen during the sum- 
mer. Tom Evans '52, Pete Loizeaux 
'54 and Steve Gribi '52 will work 
on the Fi-eshmen Committee to de- 
termine fieshman participation in 
extracurricular activities, the 
choosing of JA's, etc. 

Feeding Committee 

The Feeding Committee, made 
up of Pete Mezey '52, Al Schreck 
'52 and Henry Norton '52, will 
make lecommendations concern- 
ing tlie feeding of the Class of '55 
in the absence of June rushing. 
Robert Shorb '53. Ted Chasteney 
'52 and Richard Edwards '52 will 
study student government under 
the accelerated program. 

Duffield also asked the standing 
Scholaiship and Discipline com- 
mittees to make recommendations 
concerning the accelerated cur- 
riculum and such disciplinary ac- 
tion as might concern summer 

In a statement concerning Pres- 
ident Truman's rumored executive 
order granting deferments to col- 
lege students. Dean Brooks an- 
nounced that the official policy of 
Williams toward a summer session 
will remain unchanged until the 
number of students wishing to ac- 
celerate becomes reduced to such 
a small figure that running the 
college would be an absurdity. 

The UC found that a majority 
of the social units favor a final 
examination schedule of one exam 
in tlie morning and two exams in 
the afternoon. The scheduling of 
finals in the evening received lit- 
tle support. 

Chapel Committee 

The WCA submitted the nomi- 
nations of 12 juniors to the UC 
for approval as members of the 
new Chapel Committee. Those ap- 
proved were George Bartlett. Brett 
Boocock. Doug Burgoyne, Elliot 
Curtis, Dick Duffleld. Bill DuVal. 
Pete Gurney. Jack Harris. Jim 
Henry. Jolin Kulsar, Hodge Mark- 
giaf. and Dave Mills. 

Garfield Club President Hal 
Kahn requested that the UC take 
disciplinary action against stu- 
dents driving on the lawns of the 
Berkshire Quad during the spring 

After the meeting, the fourteen 
social units belonging to CBM 
elected an undergraduate com- 
mittee of three house presidents to 
lielp in the running of that organ- 
ization. Sikorovsky was elected 
chairman, and Edwards and Nor- 
ton were chosen as committeemen. 


The date of the AMT student 
musical. 'Zanuck in the Streets', 
was incorrectly reported in the 
March 17 i,ssue of the RECORD. 
This production will run over 
the houseparty weekend. May 
10-12, and not May 3-5, as pre- 
viously stated. 

A misprint in the Williams 
Address Book has cau.sed some 
uncertainty among the .student 
body as to the date of spring 
houseparty. The correct dates 
for this official college holiday 
are May 11-13.

The 6:30 Rule 

by Bob Simpson 

For many years now Ephriam's offsprings have been forced to 
vacate their dormitory rooms at 6;30 p.m. on any day they might be 
fortunate enough to entice a young (or even old) lady to our Berlc 
shire lair. During this time punishment has been meted out to several 
undergraduates for violating this arbitrary rule in circumstances 
which made violation the only alternative. 

Women must be out ot the dormitories by 6:30 each evening 
Yet, on Saturdays the charming creatures may linger in social unit 
sanctums till 4 a.m. Sunday morning- 
Lounges Needed 

The only place one may deposit his girl while changing or 
visiting his room for any other reason after dinner is in the first 
floor hall of his entry. Similarly, there is often no place to entertain 
before a dance on a houseparty weekend if one has a date. His room 
is the most comfortable place to entertain, and most dances have 
begun by 10 p.m. Yet, his own quarters are off bounds. 

If the administration insists on the present limit, it is only 
fair that they provide some sort of lounge room in each dormitory 
or even in each entiT in which to entertain women after dinner. The 
6:30 rule serves no purpose. If a student is intent upon seducing his 
female, he will certainly either violate the rule or find a place other 
than his room. 

Might Alter Honor System 

Williams is operated on an honor system. Such systems in many 
other colleges include conduct with women in dorms. The solution 
is either to amend our honor system and abolish all limits or extend 
the existing curfew to 10 p.m. or later and provide lounge rooms in 
each building. 

The present rule is neither practical nor reasonable!

Wed.-Thu.: "The Father of The Bride." Public enemy number one, 
Liz Taylor, puts forward her best effort, but falls completely to spoil 
this uproarious comedy. The thirty-six announced prospective Wil- 
liams bridegrooms land those freshmen who may be forced into It 
through certain North Adams "contacts") would do well to see this 
movie and learn what is in store ior them. Spencer Tracy and 
Joan Bennett more than compensate lor Liz's dewy eyed and chest- 
heaving I the greatest single feat of strength since Charlie Phelps 
'52 tapped a keg of beer with his teeth i emotionalism. 
Fri.-Sat.: "Love Happy". When the Marx brothers eliminated Zeppo 
from their act, it was a wise move. When they almost remove Oroucho 
as well, the results are nearly fatal. In this newest extravaganza he 
appears at the start and at the finish only, serving as narrator dur- 
ing the Interim. Minus his incomparable stoop and strut the movie 
is bound to suffer. Nevertheless, there are a few really uproarious 
scenes, Chico and Harpo still perform admirably on their respective 
instruments, and shapely, sketchily sheatthed sirens abound through- 
out. Co-feature: "Tomahawk " Van Heflin and Yvonne DeCarlo head 
the cast in this technicolor version of the Sioux uprising. A better 
than average western. 

Sun.-Mon.: "Kim" Wonderful photography, surprising humor, and 
excellent mob scenes make this Kippling adoption good entertain- 
ment. Errol ("original sin") Plynn and Dean Stockwell (who Is far 
more palatable than Claude Jarman) lead a cast of "thousands". 
As a whole, the acting falls a bit short, but fortunately this is not 
the type of movie which requires high grade performances. Spec- 
tacle is the aim of the show, and from that standpoint it succeeds 

"Glorified Prep School" 

To the Editor of the Williams Record: 

Perhaps the one comment about Williams College more fre- 
quently made than "What is that, Williams and Mary'/" is that 
our institution of higher learning is "nothing but a glorified prep 
school." I am glad to see that the administration is taking firm 
measures to add to this worthy reputation. 

A request was recently made of the administration by the pres- 
ident of Theta Delta Chi to excuse ten members to attend the 
wedding of one of the brothers the day before Spring vacation. The 
men were perfectly willing to take cuts of their Saturday morning 
classes, but the month of no cuts doled out by the school for missing 
classes the day before vacation seemed a trifle excessive. 

With a high degree of fair mindedness the administration re- 
fused the request on the grounds that special favors can not be 
granted. The comment accompanying the decision was to effect 
that once special permission was granted the students would take 
advantage of the school's laxity to get prolonged vacations. The 
logical validation lor the decision was that if the boys wanted to 
go to the wedding that badly, they would be willing to take the month 
of no cuts. 

College Creating Apathy 

The administration's stand is completely consistent with its 
position of denying any responsibility nnd maturity among the under- 
graduates. It goes along with the entire cut system, various com- 
promises on compulsory chapel, bullying the social units, automobile 
restrictions, and prep schooUtum. 

It becomes more and more obvious througli actions such as 
these that the administration has complete lack of confldence in 
the student body. Has it never occurred that moves like this create, 
rather than combat, the apathy, the indifferent attitude In the under- 
graduates that the college is trying to defeat'?

March 14, 1951 
To the Editor of the Williams RECORD: 

It was with astonishment that we read in Wednesday's RECORD 
of the exploits of the Club's "undefeated" freshman basketball team. 
It was a surprise to find that such an authoritive organ as the 
RECORD can print such libelous, scandalous, viscious, unfounded, 
irresponsible, untrue and prejudiced misstatements. To objective 
critics, your story reminds one of the type of sensational yellow 
journalism that is characteristic of certain big city newspapers. 

The true facts of the CEise are these: on the evening before their 
decisive victory over the Dekes, this freshman team of the Garfield 
Club lost a hard-fought, still contested game to the upperclassmen 
of the club. The final score was: Club Upperclassmen 45, Club 
Freshmen 44.

"Butch" and the Belfry 

To the Editor of the Williams RECORD: 

The chimes of yore rang out once more in old Goodrich Chapel 
on Saturday night. Ever sensitive to the world situation, our own 
"Butch" Farrington awakened from a deep sleep of peace. With the 
cry of World War Three on his lips he slipped from betwixt his 
Springmaids, sheets that is, called the faithful Bloocher to his side 
and strode forth to investigate. Donned only in grey flannels and a 
white oxford buttondown, "Butch" wasted no time on heavy dress; 
but he was still tardy in his pursuit. He found though that the cause ! 
of the tolling was not WW 3, but a bottle of Schenley's needless to ' 
say now empty. 

The culprits remained unnamed. 

Chief Royal is investigating.

Honor - 

Everybody Passes the Buck 
As Harvard Mystery Grows 

by Jim Caslimore 

Everybody wants to get Into the act at Harvard. As an after- 
math of the two recent fires in Claverly Hall, a RadcUffe otllcial 
reported that a somewhat "disgruntled" maid had telephoned a 
threatening message lo burn Briygs Hall because she did not like 
working there. She did not carry out her threat because she was 
afraid of the possible unfavorable publicity that would result. 

Meanwhile, the flre department became tired after the second 
blaise and turned the case over to the local police who, after deducing 
that something was amiss, turned the case over to the state police, 
who are now looking for a student who was seen "acting suspiciously" 
at both fires. The one identifying feature about this unknown stu- 
dent is the fact that he attended college last year but left for 
undisclosed reasons. 

Fire Doors Unused "^ 

Another bright idea was brought 
into the open recently in connec- 
tion with the fires at Claverly. In 
1894 a Boston paper stated that 
Claverly could not be destroyed 
by fire because each hallway could 
be divided into three compart- 
ments bv closing iron fire-proof 
doors. It is not certain whether 
or not this statement is true be- 
cause in the recent fires nobody 
liothered to close these doors. 

Alter the second fire, with dam- 
ages now estimated at over $65,000 
Cambridge building authorities fi- 
nally decided that they should in- 
spect thi! building to see whether 
additional safety devices would be 
needed in the future. A possible 
genius thought that since these 
U'on doors were not used in this 
nre they should be automatic. The 
Harvard Crimson agreed in their 
statement, "Both the difficulty in 
closmg the doors by hand, and the 
time wasted in doing so during a 
fire, point to such a measure." 
Students Feel Insecure 
Harvard students had many 
complaints about the fire. Some 
decided that the flre protection 
system had not warned anyone of 
tlie approaching flre. Others com- 
plained that their classmates had 
looted their rooms during the 
blaze. All the residents of Claverly 
agreed that they would "like the 
man apprehended for the bene- 
fit of their peace of mind." 


criticized the teachers who went 
to such extremes to prevent cheat 
ing that "the student is given a 
sense of accomplishment if he can 
cheat and get away with it." This 
complaint is remedied by one ot 
the mosi important advantages of- 
fered by the honor system, which 
treats the student as an adult 
capable of keeping his word. 

Although no specific instances 
of cheating had been found, Pres 
ident Wriston of Brown also gave 
his approval to the installation of 
an honor system. Such a program, 
however, could not go into effect 
until it had complete student sup- 
port. Meanwhile, at Springfield, 
the cheating expose and a long 
editorial in the "Student" has re- 
sulted in the formation of a com- 
mittee to formulate plans for 
starting an honor system there. 

reaches the age ot 18 Vi. 

Among the amendments pro 
posed in the House committee, 
one of the most important con- 
cerns the length of service of 
reservists and members of Nat- 
ional Guard units. Inactive re- 
servists, according to the amended 
bill, would be limited to twelve 
months of active service, while 
Ihe service of men in the organized 
reserved and National Quard 
would be twenty-one months. 

Another stipulation of the House 
proposal states that those who 
enlist in National Quard or Or- 
ganized Reserve units before reach- 
ing 18 'A are not guaranteed de- 
ferment from the draft when they 
reach that age. Also, as in the 
Senate bill, all college students 
who are called are deferred until 
the end of their academic year.

counter. They went on to out

Throughout the season it was 
the trio of John Pike, the season's 
high scorer. John Schluter. and 
Jim Harvey, captain-elect for next 
season, who sparked the team. 
Until he was hurt Herb Poole

Drawn up after heated debate 
the new rule states that all men

without coats and ties must eat

is not so great in the fraternities, 
as most members already dress for 
dinner. The legislation, however, 
does include the social units. 

Although many Brown students 
feel that the meal contracts should 
not contain this clause until next

would be enforced this spring. The

rhonia»«, Dunn, Good 
Head AiMT Council 

by William Widing 

Once upon a time, many years ago, theie lived a king named 
Belshamar. Among other things, old King Belshaznar was known far 
and wide for the parties he gave. One night at one of his bigger 
blasts, attended by .several thousand friends and friends of friends, 
those of the guests who could still see noticed a very strange thing. 
Over the room there was an unattached hand, writing on the 
wall. The writing, when translated, explained that King Belshazzar 
had been tried in the balances and was found wanting. That night 
old King Belshazzar was slain and his kingdom divided among his 

Exactly how many times, since Belshazzar died, similar writing 
has appeared on different walls would be hard to say, but its most 
recent apix-arancc is at Williams College in 1951. The message is 
very clear for those who have looked - Campus Business Management 
has Ix'eii weighed in the balances of ."ludent opinion and ha.s been 
found wanting. Like King Bel.shazzar. it isn t long for this world. 

Student Opinion Against CBM 

The reason for the present wide-spread discontent over CBM 
is very simple. Most houses feel that they arc paying more money in 
fees to CBM than they are saving in reduced prices. The individual 
fraternity member has not .seen any ,savings on his monthly bill yet, 
and so he wonders what is happlning to the money the house pays 
CBM. It is becoming increasingly inadequate for CBM to show how 
many hundreds of dollars are being saved on auditing costs i apparently 
the only way CBM can show total savings to members greater than 
their feesi because most houses never had these costs before CBM 
came along anyway. 

If a vote were taken today to decide whether or not to continue 
CBM, it would be overwhelmingly in favor of ending the "costly 
experiment" immediately. When CBM in .'une asks for a vote of 
confidence to continue, it can look icrward to a unanimous "No" 
from the fraternities. 

A Promise Unful(ille<l 

When CBM was revi\ed over a year ago. il promised that the 
ultimate aim of its operations was a cheaper food bill for students. 
Today board bills are higher, not lower, than a year ago, and prospects 
for CBM food buying are no nearer than they ever were. 

Campus Business Management at Williams must not be allowed 
to die. If Ihei'e was ever a time when such a system was needed, that 
time is the pve.sent. Reduced enrollment could v.cll be the beginning 
of the end for some fraternities without a cooperative purchasing 

All indications are. however, that CBM will most certainly pass 
out of existence this spring unless it acts to .justify itself to the 
student mind before June. There is only one thing that can be done 
thai will in.surc the future of CBM - the immediate con.struction of a and the purchase of food. 

Act Now or It's Too Late 

The RECORD iJoinled out in an article two weeks ago how every 
man could .save over $8.00 each month on his board bill. That is a 
considerable saving over the period of a school year, but so fai' no 
one has made a move to secure il. 

CBM in over a year has put forth no plans for beginning the 
necessary program. The College Administration has done nothing to 
help reduce the student bills - which they .ire the first to admit are 
too high in comparison to other colleges. The Undergraduate Council 
has done nothing. The fraternities have done nothing. The .students 
as individuals have done nothing. 

The result of all this inertia is that CBM is now about to get the 
axe at a time when il is needed more tlian ever. The handwriting is 
on the wall, in large, capital letters. Campus Business Management's 
days at Williams are numbered unlc-s it begins NOW to build a 
warehouse. The time has come to slop talk'ng about auditing costs 
and, instead, to fulfill the promise of reduced expenses for the in-

Dean Brooks explained the new 
major examination .system to the 
Senior class Tuesday evening in 
Jesiip Hall. He asserted that the 
changeover lo one three or four 
hoar exam would result in "de- 
creasing psychological pressure 
without diminishing Incentive." 

Although the draft and acceler- 
ation program have resulted in a 
lessening of the emphasis placed 
on comprehensives, the Dean 
stressed the "physiological and in- 
tellectual importance" of the ex- 
a!ninaiioiis in pulling together the 
various facets of the ma.ior .se- 
quence and in jiroviding 
the "exciting experience" of "see- 
ing pieces fall into place". 
Reasons Kiir Change 

The new policy of counting the 
major exam as one-sixth of the 
major mark instead of one third 
of the mark, the weight allocated 
ill iiast years, stems from two prin- 
cipal rea.sons. First, the pressure 
of acceleration does not provide 
the time for the regular compre- 
hensive exams. Second, the exams 
ha\e perhaps been overweighted 
in past years. Dean Brooks said. 

He stated that the exams were 
the culmination of the major 
course and served as a "policing 
device" lo make the 19-20 
more effective. Not only is the 
major exam a traditional charac- 
leristic of many .small New Eng- 
land colleges, but it also furnishes 
a grealev understanding of one

Commemorating the one hun- 
dredth anniversary of the death of 
the great American artist and or- 
nithologist, John James Audubon, 
the Chapin Library is exhibiting 
a complete set of his "Birds of 
America" plates. This set of 435 
colored iilates was engraved from 
Audubon '.s bird paintings, and was 
colored by Robert Havell. "one of 
the finest engravers the world has 
ever .seen.' 

The plates show over a thousand 
birds represented in action. The 
greatest problem in publishing 
many of Audubon's drawings was 
caused by their large area. In 
many cases the engraver worked 
on copper plates over six square 
feet in size.

The exhibit, a gift from Alfred 
Clark Chapin. consists of four 
volumes cofttalnlnft over four hun-

Although the curi'ent ci'isis has caused a Bood deal of confusion 
and upset many plans. Dean Brooks made it clear to the seniors 
Tuesday evening that it had been instrumental in effecting at least 
one long-sought-after change. Realizing that most seniors would not 
be able to knuckle down to the task of preparing for comprehensives 
with the hot breath of the armed services on their necks, the admin- 
istration reduced both the time and the significance of the major 
exams. There seems little doubt that these changes are welcomed by 
the greater part of the college. 

Of greater significance, however, was the admission by the Dean 
that the exams may have been overweighted in the past. This 
statement was presented as the second principal reason for the 
change in the weight allocated to the comprehensive exams, and to 
the casual observer would seem to indicate that the overall policy on 
major exams had been revised. Any conclusions to this effect may 
be premature, but they would certainly be hailed by the undergraduates 
The problem of comprehensives is too intricate and involved to in- 
vestigate at this time, but it is graOifying to note that the 
administration at last shares a good part of the student views on the 

There remains a broad area where the attitudes of the under- 
graduate body and the administration arc sharply divergent. At 
various times throughout his talk Dean Brooks made reference to the 
"exciting" and "pleasant experience" of taking these exams. Now 
whether the Dean spoke with his tongue in his cheek or not is 
hardly verifiable, but we doubt that any undergraduate has ever 
made comprehensives the subject of even the slyest humour, not to 
mention an enjoyable experience. We fully comprehend the Dean's 
worthy motives in trying to brighten up a grim subject, but come now, 
Mr. Brooks, do you really think comprehensives are something to 
look forward to? 

AMT Musical 

During the past week or so there has been considerable comment 
from undergraduate quarters concerning the date set for the AMT 
musical. Several persons have approached us and asked why the 
RECORD has not done something about it. They argue that since 
houseparty evenings are already crowded with events, it would be 
better to move the musical up a week to Parents Weekend when there 
are less activities scheduled and perhaps a more appreciative audience 
present. Who, they ask, would get a bigger kick out of the show than 
the parents of the fellows in if:' The RECORD has not had the time 
to investigate the matter thoroughly, but we refer it to the show's 
producers for their real consideration. 


Must We Accelerate? 

by Pete rickard 

When Pres. James P. Baxter III revealed plans for acceleration 
to the student body on Jan. 15 in Chapin Hall, he stated two clear 
reasons why this move should prove advantageous to the under- 

1) Students in accelerated colleges might well be deferred. 

2) Each additional semester of college a man could get before entering 
the service would increase his chances for either becoming a com- 
missioned officer or earning a deferment back to college. 

The first reason went up in smoke at a Senate committee 
meeting. The second reason is apparently based less on concrete, 
universally applied army policy than on the assertion that the 
better trained a man is, the better chance he has iti otherwise etiual 

Muddy Water 

The administration has stated that its move was made early in 
order to provide students with "an anchor in a sea of uncertainty 
But that anchor is beginning to drag bottom aiid stli- up a lot of 
muddy water. The ROTC has committed itself siiice Jan. 15 and will 
not hold summer classes; thus none ol its enroUees will be returning 
for the extra session. Military and Congressional planners appear to 
be heading in a direction quite different from that which President 
Baxter foresaw. Passage of Ti-uman's prospective executive order 
described in the March 21 issue of the RECORD would defer virtually 
every Williams student, as it is difficult to conceive of any man 
screened by our admissions office who could not achieve a score of 
70 or better on a competitive national examination. 

In view of these developments. Dean Robert R.R. Brooks stated 
Monday night that Williams will continue its plan for acceleration if 
it possibly can. that is, if a minimum number of students enroll. 

It would seem more reasonable for the administration to take the 
stand that it will not run a summer term unless it has to. Experience 
during World War II demonstrated without exception that acceleration 
is undesirable from an educational standpoint. It produces, to quote 
Dr. Griswold of Yale, "an all round lowering of standards and 
cheapening of products." There is no question that such a program 
would completely change the meaning of a Williams education. 

Students Have No Choice 

No student is forced to accelerate, says the administration. But 
every undergraduate is drastically affected by a speeded-up program 
whether he accelerates or not: 

1) He must go through a condensed exam period this spring which 
will give him much less time to study for tests that still cover a 
whole semester's material; the fact that they count less doesn't 
reduce the amount of time necessary for preparation. 

21 He must take an extra-long summer vacation whether he likes it 
or not and pay for it with concentrated study during the condensed 
fall schedule. 

3) He must learn from an undermanned teaching staff, as most 
salaries are on a two out of three term basis, so that professors who 
teach during the summer term will be eligible for vacations in the fall. 

i) He must adjust to a curriculum with far less elective courses. In 
addition to the reduced number of professors, the necessity for 
offering both halves of courses such as Math 1-2 during the same 
semester means that other courses will have to go. 



As the days lengthen and the cj'ows return to the elm trees, 
Williams hitch-hikers once again take to the roads en masse, and 
from now until June, maybe through the summer, the veins and 
arteries that feed Williamstown will be crowded with well dressed 
thumbs. With this in mind it would not be amiss to review a few 
thoughts and pointers about the art of getting a ride. 

The simplest and most direct way is to stand by a traffic light 
and open the doors of the stopped cars before the unwary motorists 
can lock them. There are many people who feel this is not fair play 
and would rather observe more sportsman-like rules. Also there is 
not always a traffic light handy. 

The open road hitch-hiker has a much more difficult task. In 
three to five seconds he must convince an unknown human being 
who is operating a motor vehicle at high speed that he will neither 
beat him. hold him up. rob him. or elope with his wife if she Is in 
the car. On paper this presents a fairly insurmountable problem, but 
with practice it can be done. 

There is little question about the matter of dress. The current 
theory is to look as much like a college boy as possible, because 
everyone knows college boys are harmless. However there is great 
disagreement about the correct stance. Some feel the hiker should 
feign nonchalance and disinterest by whistling a light popular tune 
to himself. His thumb should not be Imposingly stuck out, but rather 
just visible. Others feel the hiker should make every effort to project 
his personality upon the pa.ssing motorists. It alone, this can be done 
by blowing large bubbles of bubble gum or waving Williams banners; 
if in a group, a short but snappy song and dance routine is equally 
effective. There are a few individuals who get down on their knees 
or roll across the road hoping to wring n tear from the passing drivers, 
but most experienced hikers feel this is not worth the wear and tear 
on their dark flannels. 

A word to the wise about hiking on Parkways. The nonchalant 
technique should be used and the hiker should keep an alert eye for 
vanguards of the law. Immediately upon spying one. he should thrust 
both hands in his pockets and look as much as possible like someone 
who is Just out for a stroll in the balmy air. S. A. E. 


The administration should take the attitude that it will not 
accelerate imless such a program would provide definite advantages 
to most students. The picture is as yet unclear, but it is not taking 
shape as President Baxter originally visualized. Dean Brooks has 
stated that the college has an obligation to give anyone who wants to 
accelerate the chance to do so. But in the event that a majority of 
the students now in college repudiate the summer term. Isn't the 
college's real obligation to let those students continue their Williams 
education in the way they begun it?

Ihis annual dinner held in New 
York City is the only gathering 
for all Williams men which 
takes place outside Wllliamstown 
Although the dinner is planned 
under the auspices of the Williams 
Club of New York every alumnus 
from Maine to San Francisco is 
invited by the Society of Alumni 
to attend. 

This annual affair has taken 
place every year since the early 
1900's except for the interruptions 
caused by both the first and second 
World Wars.

In order to attract the more 
recently graduated alumni, the

After the quota is filled, inter-

up on a waiting list. Vacancies 
that occur when members are 
transfered will be filled from the 
waiting list in order of enlist- 
ment. Furthermore. Lieutenant 
Commander Chamberlain expects 
his quota to be increased at some 
future date. 

Two Week Summer Cruise 

Every summer, following one full 
year in the Reserve, members are 
required to take a two week 
cruise. Under the present ruling, 
reservists may be called for 21 
months of active duty at any time. 
At the present, seaman recruits 
in the Naval Reserve are not 
being called because enough men 
are enlisting in the regular navy.

draft in the event that his local 
draft board has exhausted all 
other sources, which include 18 Vi 
year olds imder the new law.

Three Harvard and two Dart-

iVIonday on charges arising from 
a brawl whlclr took place early 
Sunday morning in a cafeteria 
on Harvard Square. 

The men face a total of 17 
charges, including drunkenness, 
disturbing the peace on Sunday,

Students Resist Arrest 
According to one of the Har-

he and another freshman entered 
the Waldorf Cafeteria a short time 
after 3 a.m. Sunday mornmg. They 
sat down at one end of a long 
table which was already occupied 
by two Dartmouth men. 

The five students became "quite 
boisterous" and one of the women 
eating in the cafeteria called the 
police. When two patrolmen ar- 
rived and tried to pick up one of 
the Dartmouth men a short melee 
ensued in which chairs, trays, and 
fists flew. 

The patrolmen emerged vic- 
torious and the five students were 
requested to "come along". The 
ensuing wagon ride was dark ac- 
cording to one of the students,

Key Approves 
Policy Change 
For Next Year 

CBM Expansion Needs Support 

New System Eliniinatcs 

lix - Captains, Places 

Keliance on Juniors 

Hoping to revitalize Its activi- 

ui'S for next year, the Purple Key 

Society has passed a plan calllnij 

ur substantial channes in its or- 

anization. As the results of a 

ueeting last Thursday night. Pres- 

acnt Ted Chllds announced a 

I lift from the former policies in 

I'olh the membership and the du- 

(C's of the society. 

Contrary to the old system, a 
lew athletic captain immediately 
I'places his predecessor on the 
'urple Key. Formerly any slud- 
iit who had ever been a varsity 
, uptain received membership. By 
decreasing the total number and 
l)y increasiiiB the proportion of 
members from the junior class, 
the Key hopes to create a more 
iictive orsanlzation. 

Vice President On Council 

The new plans include automa- 
lic membership on the under- 
graduate athletic council for the 
Vice President of the Society. In 
I lie the Key has elected a 
vursity captain as its second i-e- 
uresentativc to the Council. The 
I'lesidcnt will continue to serve 
nil the college council. 

In the future only the manager 
of A varsity sport and a compet 
will meet a visiting team. Under 
the old rules two Key members al- 
.s(i a.ssisted in this function. The 
Society will also now turn more 
;ittention towards visiting fresh- 
men teams. 

Time And Men Wasted 

The special committee that pro- 
imsed the changes fell that an un- 
necessary number of men were 
meeting varsity athletes from other 
colleges. By shifting its efiforts to 
fi-eshman athletics, the Key be- 
lieves it can make a better im- 
pression on first year men from 
visiting .schools. 

Officers will be elected in Sep- 
tember, and serve throughout the 
year. Their tenure will not be 
subject to varsity election, as the 
.society fears a rapid turnover in

Amherst Food 
Bills to Rise 

Hike Due lo In<M'ea^e(l 
Costs, Cole Declares 

by George Kinter 

If CBM is to construct a wareiiouse and expand into the field 
for which it was created, it must have the support of the college 
administration and the undergraduate body. The administration must 
be convinced that the operation of a warehouse is financially feas- 
ible and that the students will give whole-hearted support to such a 
move. Only with these conditions can CBM hope to begin buying food- 
stuffs, a move which will reduce student board costs within the 
present .system of small dining units. 

Oregon Has 32 Years Experience 

Cooperative fraternity buying is NOT a bold new innovation 
be.set witii the difficulties characteristic of a new experiment. CBM 
will NOT be a pioneer in the field of warehouse operation and whole- 
sale food purciiasing if and when it is empowered to constnict a 
warehouse. It has only to follow the operational plans which other 
colleges have evolved. 

Bowdoin establi.slied cooperative food buying in 1945 and its 
five years of succes.sful operation provide the nearest example for 
Williams to follow, but similar enterprises have much longer histories. 
The Oregon State Agricultural College, a school of approximately 
1.800 students with 41 fraternities and sororities, incoiTorated a 
Cooperative Managers A.ssociation in 1919, an organization which 
has functioned eflectlvely for 32 years without interruption, despite 
tire depression and the war. 

Active Support Flagging 

During the flist year of its existence the Association merely 
negotiated contracts witlr local merchants for goods on a wholesale 
basis. It operated without working capital, storage facilities, or paid 
employees, and the only cost to the fraternities and sororities was 
a $15 membership cliarge. In contrast to this inauspicious .start, CBM 
boasted an office, a permanent manager, a yearly budget of $7500, 
and the strong backing 'financial and othei'wise) by the college for 
the first year of its operation. 

Yet within a year the Association at Oregon State had leased 
a warehouse, employed a manager, and begun cooperative buying in 
earnest. CBM. in the same space of time, has been unable to make 
such an advance. Both the college administration and the social units 
have ceased to give active and positive support. 

Early Twenties Unfavorable 

The 1919-1920 period in which the Oregon As.sociation was creat- 
ed, was. in many respects, similar to our present era. The higlr cost 
of living lield America's attention as it soared to unprecedented 
heights in a few months. Today our living costs are even higher than 
they were then, although they have risen over a longer period and the 
consummer is less startled. 

Americans expected a depression to follow World War I and 
they waited uneasily for the post-war ooom-bubble to burst, as it 
did in 1920. Today tlie feeling of insecurity is focused on Korea and 
Russia. Thirty-two years ago Oregon State dared to venture into the

Amherst students can expect to

Board Rates Lowest 

Even in the despondency brought 
on by the "awful prospect" the 
Amlierst 'Student' was able to 
come up with one briglit view of 
the matter: despite the Sa- 
brina board bills will still be lower 
than those at Williams, Wesleyan 
or any Ivy League college. 

The amount of increase can not 
be determined until the effect of 
Amherst's summer session and the 
size of tlic college have been tak- 
en into account. The administra- 
tion cannot even venture a guess 
on the college's enrollment until 
the government its new 
manpower bill. 

A further obstacle to the new 
plan is the present freeze on price which applies to col- 
leges as well as profit-making or- 
ganizations. A change in this 
freeze is expected.

For a .score of years and ten the 
College Restaurant has catered to 
the appetites and thirsts of Wil- 
liams men. and is fast becoming 
part of the Billville tradition for 
many sons of Eph Williams. 

A generation of old grads will 
remember its founder. Eddie 
Dempsey, who built the Dempsey 
Building in which the restaurant 
is located. He entered upon his 
career as a restauranteur in 1921 
after selling his reknowned pool 
hall to Cabe Prindle.

the roaring twenties and the de-

Lt. John Lundblad of the Arm- 
ored Cavalry and Captain Stanley 
Littey of the Air Force explained 
the varied opportunities which a- 
wait the prospective ai-my induc- 
tee in a UC sponsored talk in Je- 
sup Hall Monday evening. 

Lundblad first differentiated be- 
tween tlie army and the infantry. 
According to the lieutenant, sev- 
en out of ten inductees passing 
through Fort Devens and presum- 
ably other reporting centers do 
not go in the infantry. He also 
stated that four out of every seven 
infantrymen do not become foot 
soldiers but are used as clerks jeep 
drivers, coolcs etc. 

The normal routine for the 
draftee from this area is to re- 
port to Fort Devens for his apti- 
tude tests and interviews. At this 
point he may take the test for OCS 
and may apply for Officers Candi- 
date School if he passes. After five 
days at the reporting center, the 
draftee is .sent for 14 weeks of 
basic training. Then he may go 
to OCS if he has been accepted 

According to Littey there is a 
.scarcity of lower ranked commis- 
sioned officers in the ai-my and 
chances for admittance for OCS 
are good. 

The officers stated that the per 
centage of college students among 
draftees was particularly high in 
the East. The scarcity of officer 
candidate material in other parts 
of the country is another factor 
increasing the cliances of Williams 
undergraduates for receiving ac- 
ceptance into OCS. 

There will be a new leader on 
the Williams bandstand supply- 
ing the music for the Friday even- 
ing dance for this year's Spring 
Houseparty. He is Larry Green, 
who in the past few years has 
gained considerable popularity 
both in the exclusive nightclubs 
and hotels of many eastei-n cities 
and in the colleges of the midwest. 
One of Harry Marchard's num- 
erous bands. Green is familiar to 
many of the Bostonites because of 
his numerous appearances at the 
"Meadows" on Route 9 in Fx'am- 
ingham. To give the student body 
a glimpse into what kind of danc- 
ing music they are getting, Green 
has .sent ahead several of his re- 
cord albums, which will be played 
over WMS during the weeks pre- 
ceeding the dance. 

After much consideration con- 
cerning the advisability of hold- 
ing the dance outdoors this year, 
the committee decided that May 
11 was too unsure a time to take 
a chance on the weather. Conse- 
quently, the Spring atmosphere 
will be created inside by a "Blos- 
som Time" motif. The same New 
York decorator who did the Fall

The Junior Class, which is spon- 
soring the weekend, plans to fill 
the requirements for this theme 
with an elaborate job of decorat- 
tion. They expect to have the moon 
and stars on the ceiling; awnings 
ffown the .sides of the gym: and 
flowers placed around the room. 
But perhaps the most sensational 
and provocative of the decorations 
is a "monstrous" fountain, com- 
plete with running water, which 
will be placed in the middle of 
the gym. 

Beside the usual athletic ev- 
ents to supply entertamment for 
Saturday afternoon, the Fresh- 
man - Sophomore annual picnic 
and rope pull will also be held 
that day. Hikes sponsored by the 
Outing Club will complete the list 
of entertainment for everyone. 

Wesleyan Bars 
Red Speakers 

Alumni, Students Force 
Revoke of Invitations 


Due to the start of spring 
vacation on Saturday, the Rec- 
ord has appeared today with 
a special six page issue. This 
edition represents a combina- 
tion of the usual issues on 
Wednesday and Saturday. No 
decrease in the number of is- 
sues as announced previo\isly 
has been made. 

The next i.ssue of the Record 
will appear April 14. the Sat- 
urday following the resump- 
tion of classes. 

Because of dissenting opinions 
in the student body and pressure 
applied by alumni and undergrad- 
uates, the Wesleyan parley Com- 
mittee was forced to withdraw in- 
vitations already sent to John 
Gates and Henry Winston, the 
two communist speakers for 
this year's Parley. Both men had 
been convicted as Communist con- 

The parley, which took place 
March 14-15. had as its topic: 
"Can Communism and Capitalism 
Co-Exist in the World?" Students 
from many Eastern colleges were 
invited to hear the various speakers 
and to take part in the panel 

Opinions Varied 
When it was revealed that Gates 
and Winston would air their 
views at Middletown. the reaction 
was immediate and in some cases 
explosive. Letters were written to 
the editor of the Wesleyan 'Argus' 
explaining that such a move would 
prejudice public opinion against 
Wesleyan . Conforming to this 
opinion, the Parley committee then 
revoked the invitations, causing 
even more wide-spread turmoil. 
Some felt that the committee 
had "failed to produce an effec- 
tive publicity campaign that would 
have clearly outlined Wesleyan's 
ixxsition " and that "if the courts 
allow them to come here, they 
should have been able to appear 
at the Parley." Many stated that 
by pulling out the college lost 
much prestige.

Backs Down 

Wesleyan College held its annual Parley the weekend before 
last, and John Getes and Henry Winston, Communists, were not there. 
Normally, no one would care that two of the leading U.S. Communists 
were not speaking at Wesleyan College, but in this particular case. 
Gates and Winston had accepted invitations to be among the list of 
speakers discussing the topic "Can Communism and Capitalism Co 
exist in the World?" 

Between the time the invitations were issued and the commence- 
ment of the parley, enough pressure had been exerted on the Parley 
Committee so that it withdrew these invitations. Under the force ot 
outside pressure, the Committee decided that it would be to the best 
interests of the college and the parley if the two Commimists did not 

That same weekend, our own President Baxter delivered a lecture 
at Swarthmore College on the "Fi'eedom of Education". During his 
speech President Baxter traced the "tragic" attempts to curb 
academic freedom in the United States and showed the disastrous 
affects this could have through the example of such action in Fascist 
and Communist nations. Although there is undoubtedly a distinction 
between what occurred at Wesleyan and restrictions on academic 
freedom, nearly everything President Baxter said ran counter to the 
whole series of events that culminated in the withdrawal of the 

There is a real threat to our freedom when a conference at an 
institution of higher learning cannot represent all the views on the 
subject without provoking threats and criticism. There is far greater 
danger when the college deems it expedient to bow before the demands 
of certain interests and pressure groups. Certainly the freedom of 
action of the parley committee was substantially denied when it was 
forced to reject Gates and Winston. Much of the pressure applied 
came from people who had no real Interest In Wesleyan College. If 
this action indicates a trend, there is no telling to what extent out 
side influences can interfere with the private business of a college. 

Furthermore, the implication that the students at Wesleyan 
could be swayed by the Communists is an insult to their intelligence. 
Since when have the intellects at Wesleyan become so impoverished 
that they could be duped by these Communists? If there is any 
particular place where a free play of ideas is most appropriate, it is 
in our colleges and imiversities. The action at Wesleyan was an out- 
right denial of freedom of speech and thought. 

For our money, we would not Invite Gates and Winston to Wil- 
liams at this time. While we are fighting Communist aggression in 
Korea, we are not interested in what they have to say. It would 
probably be the same old story. But If someone else elects to hear 
them speak, that is then- business. When it becomes an American 
practice to ban speakers because of their beliefs, then it's time to 
re-examine the meaning of American. 

Bitter Grass 

by Richard Uuffield 

Houseparty weekend rolls around again in about a month, and 
already many undergraduates have started making plans and pre- 
parations for the big attair. Among the jobs every prospective week- 
ender must attend to is the procurement of suitable lodging for his 
date. Some lay their plans well in advance and are set to house their 
date months before the houseparty; others wait until the last minute 
and then scurry around Williamstown hunting up a place to keep 
their girl. Nearly everyone gets settled sooner or later, but oftentimes 
only at the price ot considerable inconvenience both to the student 
and to persons providing rooms. 

Some strange situations arise in the quest tor rooms. Often- 
times, students reserve a single room or a group of rooms and then 
unload them on the landlady at the last minute. Fellows who find 
they cannot fill rooms because of last minute axes often lose their 
deposits. Others are told one day that there are no vacancies and 
find out later there was plenty of room due to cancelled reservations. 
There is confusion, inconveneince, and general SNAFU in the present 
room-renting situation. 

For the most part, the toiuist homes and inns have the situation 
under control, but where private homes are opened tor houseparty 
dates there is much that can be done to make less work for both the 
student and the person renting out the room. 

Central Rooming Agency 

What is needed is a central rooming agency, run by students 
under the supervision of the Student Aid Office, which would func- 
tion for approximately a month prior to houseparty weekend. All 
available ixmms would be listed with the agency, which in turn would 
rent the i-ooms to the students and collect the deposits. There would 
be a fixed rate charged for the rooms, and the student in charge of 
the agency would receive a commission for every i-oom rented. This, 
of course, is the mere skeleton of a plan which can be better worked 
out in its details by the Student Aid Office in conjunction with owners 
of private homes who desire to help out on crowded weekends. 

Both students and renters should benefit by this arrangement. 
To the student it means the end of frequent and hectic calls to 
every rooming house in Williamstown. It means that many more pri- 
vate homes would be opened to the students if a responsible agency 
handled the transactions. Less students would be disappointed, more 
would find their dates conveniently situated near their social unit, 
and, in general, a time-consuming task could be passed oft with ease. 

For the rentor it would Increase the certainty of payment. Last 
minute cancellations could be filled to the satisfaction of both par- 
ties, and where they were filled, deposits could be returned. Above 
all, renters would have a responsible agency to which they could go 
with complaints concerning conduct and payment. 

The advantages of this plan are obvious. With a proper sys- 
tem, the work involved would not be tremendous. Both the student 
and rentor would benefit, and nearly everyone would be in a better 
frame of mind to enjoy his weekend. 

As an earlier RECORD article has pointed out, Williamstown Is 
once again in the throes of Its perennial mud and puddle problem. 
There is little in the Parmer's Almanac to indicate that the problem 
will subside until the cessation of the annual spring rains. 

The mud problem goes further than complicating the Intra- 
campus travels of the undergraduates, for at this time of year the 
college lawns are also soft and saturated. Any person, vehicle, or ob- 
ject contacting the ground leaves an indelible print. 

So much for the background. Now for the iadts. At the latest 
meeting ot the Undergraduate Council, strenuous objection was 
raised to the careless manner in which persons on foot and in vehicles 
were tearing up the college lawns. It was reported that certain 
people insisted on driving across the Berkshire Quad and ripping up 
what little turf remained. At the same time criticism was voiced of 
the Indifferent manner in which private trucks and even college 
trucks churned their way across the lawns. 

Dean Brooks has announced that he will gladly assist in the 
prosecution of those persons who violate the college regulations by 
driving across lawns, but the only limitation imposed upon the col- 
lege trucks and private trucks operating under the colleges' super- 
vision Is their own self-restraint. Certainly, there is less incentive 
by the students to respect this property if the college trucks run 
roughshod over it. 

In the Freshman Quad the story Is quite different. All the dam- 
age done there is perpetrated by lazy freshmen who won't take the 
trouble to walk around. Later in the spring the Quad will be torn to 
bits by would-be lacrosse players who can't watt for the ground to 

In a way it is senseless to editoralize on this subject, since all words will be disregarded as soon as the warm weather hits. 
Gradually, the college lawns will be worn away until the administra- 
tion feels free to inaugurate plans to macadamize the flatter expanses j 
and turn them into parking lots.

As Williams prepaies for the 
.spring vacation, the futui-e of the 
nation's college undergraduates is 
being decided in the nation's cap- 
Itol where congressional legislation 
and presidential action are ex- 
pected to shape the new miUtary 
manpower setup. 

While amerlcan colleges are an- 
ticipating the President's order 
deferring up to lO'i of all college 
students, the House opens debate 
April 3 on a manpower bill to 
complement the Senate bill which 
ha.s already been pa.ssed. 
Presidential Order 

The expected presidential order, 
an extension of the plan proposed 
by the Dii'ector of Selective Ser- 
vice , Major General Lewis B. , 
Hershey. would defer all freshmen I 
in college who are in the top half 1 
of their class two thirds of the 
sophomores, and three quarters 
of all Juniors. 

There are three striking diff- 
erences in the legislation pro- 
posed by the two houses of Con- The most important of these 
concern the minimum draft age 
and Uie term of service. The 
Senate bill calls for an 18 -year 
old minimum and a term of 
active service of 24 months, while 
the House propcsal stipulated an 
18'/2-year old minimum with 26 
months duty. 

After active service is com- 
pleted, both bills require member-

'Othello' AMI 
Opening Show 

Liithy PI ay 8 Title Hole; 
Smith Ca8t an lago 

The Adams Memorial Theatre 
production of "Othello" which 
opened last night will continue 
with shows tonight and tomorrow 
evening. Martin Luthy '51 is starr- 
ing in the title role, and Cathy 
Martin is his leading lady. 

Raymond Smith has the part 
of lago, and John F^-ankenhelmer, 
Allen Good, Jane Plory, Ruth 
Wynn, and many supporting 
players common to Shakespearian 
plays round out the cast. 

New Devices Used 

The stage direction is the re 
sponslbility of David Bryant, while 
Joan Luthy and William Anderson 
have charge of the costumes and 
lighting, respectively. John Cohen 
'54 has painted colored slides 
which are projected on the cyclo- 
rama as a new scenery device. 

Another new innovation which 
breaks up the stage into areas for 
separate scenes is a special unit 
of platforms on thi'ee different 
levels and a transparent curtain. 

Veteran Cast 
Marty Lutliy, a veteran perform- 
er at the AMT, has appeared in 
numerous productions including 
"Shadow of a Star" and last year's 
musical, "Where to from Here' 
Ray Smith played the lead in "The 
Importance of Being Earnest", 
while Mrs. Martin had the female 
lead in "Lilliom." 

Since English 2 students will be 
reading this play after vacation, 
the ticket demand for "Othello" 
may be slightly higher than orig 
inally expected.

The American Council on Ed- 
ucation gave its approval to college 
acceleration plans, in a confer- 
ence held in Washington on March 
20. The delegates stated at the 
end of the talk "that adaptions to 
aid the acceleration of Individuals 
was the best policy for the pres- 

The Council was dealing with 
the problem of education under a 
Universal Military Training pro- 
gram which would take away two 
years that would ordinarily be 
used for high school or college 
training. Among its recommenda- 
tions was one calling for "a full- 
scale study of the time element in 
American education." 

The conference was represent- 
ed for Williams by President Bax- 
ter and Director of Admissions, 
Frederick C. Copeland. Before the 
meeting took place, the Council 
released the results of a poll which 
showed that bb'i of 205 colleges 
polled opposed acceleration, while 
only 7'*' believed that acceleration 
was considered necessary. 

Draft Hinders Professions 

In the discussion on the time- 
study proposal, it was brought out 
that several of the professions, 
such as law and medicine, requir- 
ed three to five additional 
years of study after college, and 
an additional two-year period of 
military service would seriously 
discourage men who were think- 
ing of entering these fields. 

However, the conferees did not 
think it a necessity to recommend 
institutional acceleration. The late 
Dr. Edmimd Ezra Day, President 
Emeritus of Cornell University, ap- 
praised the work of the two-day 
conference by putting forth the 
following points. 

Heavy Tensions Relieved 

First, Day said, the national 
tensions of last fall have been re- 
lieved to a large extent, and the 
immediate danger now is that the 
seriousness of the situation will 
not be sufficiently recognized. We 
face a long period of partial em- 
ergency, and education must ad- 
Just to the fact that young men 
will have to take two years out for 
military purposes. 

In the immediate future, added 
Day, there will be a period of un- 
certainty until the government 
reaches its decisions on the draft 
and UMT. Although temporary 
measures may prove useful, the 
long run program of a two-year 
army service must finally be faced.

Dekes Retain Inter fraternity 
Swimming Title; Edge Psi U. 

Meet Decided 
In Last Event 

Victors Cop Four Firsts; 
Callahan, Bantu Star 

A victory In the 200 yd. Free- 
style Relay gave the Dekes the 
necessary edge to retain their in- 
tramural swimming laurels. Going 
into the final event, the Psl U's 
lead by a scant three points but 
(ailed to qualify for this race. 
Accounting for the decisive win 
were Joe Callahan, Scott Warner, 
Chuck Salmon and Bruce Banta. 

The meet was close all the way, 
scoring being dominated by the 
Dekes and Psi Us. These two top 
teams accounted for seven of the 
eight number one berths, the oth- 
er first place being annexed by 
freshman Burt Samson of the 
Club, who took the 100 yd. Back- 
.stroke in 1:09.7. 

Psi U's Start Strong 

Outside of the final relay, each 
team gleaned three firsts; but it 
was Psi U. that recorded the ini- 
tial win. Their Medley Relay trio 
of Archie Beard. Bill Hatch, and 
Jim Shanahan edged the Dekes 
m the opening event. However, the 
title holders retaliated as Don Wy' 
man powered his way to top hon^ 
ors in the 200 yd. Freestyle. 

In this see-saw battle, the next 
win fell to the Psi U's with Hank 
James tallying 36 points in the 
dive. Bouncing back Joe Callahan 
and Bruce Banta of the Dekes an 
nexed victories in the 50 yd. and 
100 yd. Fi-eestyles. 

Callahan Stars 

Then the Psi U's began piling 
up their slim lead. Braxton and 
Hatch finished one- two in the 
100 yd. Breaststroke and Beard 
took a third in the 100 yd. Back- 
stroke. This put the Psi U's in the 
lead and set the stage for the final 

High individual honors for the 
meet went to Joe Callahan. Bruce 
Banta also showed well.

Lynch to Captain Nine 

In Attempt to Retain 

Little Three Honors 

by Kay Kolligian 

"If we get good pitching this 
year, we'll have a good season, 

otherwise ?" That's just 

how Coach Bobby Coombs sunmied 
up speculation on the fast ap- 
proaching Williams baseball sea- 
son which opens on the 21st of 
April against the Universtiy of 

After watching his squad of re- 
turning veterans and sophomore 
hopefuls for over two weeks now, 
Coach Coombs seems to feel that 
with speed and effective power at 
the plate present pitching looms as 
the big question-mark. 

Strong Sophomore Crew 

Sophomore eligibles include a 
trio of hurlers whose performances 
were outstanding for the Pi'osh 
last year. With the addition of 
Bob Wiley, Mike Puffer, and 
South Paw John Beaid to the 
varsity, the pitching staff appears 
to be greatly bolstered. "If these 
men come through we'll do well" 
says Bobby. "But there's that big 
word IF." 

Other outstanding sophs include 
catcher Bob Depopolo, inflelders 
Bob Ouchterloney, Pete Christ- 
man, and Bill Miller, along with 
fly-chasers Bill Kinkead, Tom 
Dorsey, and Pete Connolly. 
Experienced Inflelders 

"Harry Sheehy will be used ex- 
clusively at fii'st base" asserts 
Coombs, realizing full well the dif- 
ficulties involved in a continual 
infield break-up which would oc- 
cur if Sheehy were to alternate be- 
tween his first base position and 
other chores on the mound. 

Bill Callaghan and Joe Ferri al- 
so return as infielders with ample 
varsity service. Ferri's .309 batting 
average was second only to the 
.311 mark of Ray Mason in the 
1950 season. Also with J.V. and 
varsity experience are the Calla- 
han brothers, Joe and Pete at 
shortstop and first base respective- 

Emphasis on Speed 

Captain Shea Lj-nch will resume 
his duties In the center garden 
flanked in left field by 1950's R.

field" spot as yet, remains wide 
open for competition with Pete De-

parade of ball hawks fighting fori 
the post. I

Steiiibreniier to Enter 
Canada Hurdles Scries 

Though the winter track 
season has ofllclally closed, 
George Steinbrenner '52 will 
carry the Purple colors into 
foreign country on April 6. 
Steinbrenner has been selected 
to compete In the International 
Invitational Hurdles Series to 
be held at Montreal, Canada 
on that date. 

The six event track battle 
between United States run- 
ners and Canadian trackmen 
will be run as an extra attrac- 
tion in conjunction with the 
Canadian AAU Championships 
which are to be held the same 
evening. The hurdles, dash, 
mile run, and relay are fea- 
tured in the running, while the 
pole vault and shot put are the 
field events. Coach Anthony 
Plansky will accompany Stein- 
brenner to Montreal. 

Lisser can really dig. Now all we 
need to do is to find out how to 
steal first base and we'll be all set."

American League Pennant Predictions 

by Bob Simpson 

About this time each year a RE- 
CORD sports editor places his neck 
squarely on the block by attempt- 
ing the always difficult task of 
predicting the eventual results of 
forthcoming major league flag 

For the past few years the Am- 
erican League powerhouse on pap- 
er has been the Red Sox. Never- 
theless, the Bosox have not quite 
had it when the pennant chips 
were down. This year, with the 
additions of pitchers Scarborough 

in the final AL standing, about 
five games oR the pace. I pick 
them to edge a young and poten- 
tially powerful home town Cleve- 
land club. The Indians need about 
a year of polishing under new 
management before again looming 
as real flag material. Despite short 
comings In other departments the 
"big three" of the Tribe's mound 
staff. Lemon, Wynn, and Feller, 
will in this writer's opinion pile up 
a total of sixty wins during the 
1951 campaign. 

Washington should again an- 
and Wight and the always capable nex the number one second division 
Lou Boudreau minus managerial berth. The White Sox with Paul 
worries, the Boston club should Riciiards at the helm vacated by 
walk off with junior circuit laur- Jack Corrlden will be hot on their 
els. heals. 

The race will undoubtedly be' Jimmy Dykes' new charges, the 
close. However, with experienced Philadelphia A's ought to be able Herb Smith, top scorer for th 
slugging and fielding stalwarts to climb out of the cellar where | gph frosh thl.s season, missed the 
like last seasons AL batting king ihey closed the 1950 season. I re- 
Billy Goodman, Williams, Doerr. serve this spot for the hapless St.

Coaoh Potter liehuilds; 

Me Williams, Schluter, 

Outlin Form INucleus 

by Woody U'Oench 

With only three of last year's 
first string returning Coach Har- 
vey Poller is faced with the diffi- 
cull task of rebuilding the Wil- 
liams varsity lacrosse team almost 
from scratch. 

Sole returnees from the 1950 
team, ranked 15th nationally, are 
the three attackmen. Captain 
Gordie McWilliams, Jolin Schlut- 
er and Prenchy Oudin. 

Several Shifts Made 

In an effort to strengthen the 
defense. Potter has switched Schlu- 
ter from attack, replacing him 
wilh Praser Moffat. Schluter or- 
Igaially was a defenseman but 
played attack last season. 

Bob Day, whose speed and shift- 
iness make him an ideal midfield 
man, has been returned to that 
position after a year at attack. 
Joining him there are John Nel- 
son, a junior, and Ted Johnson, up 
from the freshman team. The se- 
cond midfield line, which will play 
as a unit, is composed of Jack 
French, Wyn Shudt and Duke 

Defense Undecided 

Battling it out for the three de- 
fense berths along with Schluter 
are Pat I'Hommedieu, Pete Inger- 
soll and Dave Mills. The goalie 
position has been pretty well sew- 
ed up by Frank Weeks, who was 
out of school last year but was 
freshman netminder two years 

After two weeks of experiment 
ing and watching. Potter has de 
cided that there are the men 
that will probably open the reg 
ular season against Union April 
25. Unfortunately, the team will 
not be at full strength for their 
five game vacation trip. Moffat 
is nuising a broken nose, while 
Brad Purcell, a capable man at 
midfield. is recovering from a leg 
injury received while skiing. 
Thirteen Games 

The team, which has the un- 
enviable job of trying to equal the 
8-5-1 record of the 1950 squad, 
faces Army in the opener March 
31. After this the Ephs head south, 
playing games with Maryland, the 
University of North Carolina, Duke 
and Western Maryland. 

Following the spring tour there 
is a break of over two weeks before 
the Union game ample time to iron 
out any difficulties which may 
have arisen in the first five games.

Linksmen to Face Strong

by Jerry Davis 

Seven members of the Williams 
Varsity Golf Squad will journey 
below the Mason-Dixon Line to

annual spring vacation trip. Last 
season's returning veterans. Cap- 
lain Bill Rodie, Prank McManus, 
and Ted Taylor will lead the Dixie-

ney to Pinehurst, Durham and 
Chapel Hill where they will meet 
outstanding competition. 

The scene of the linksmen 's first 
action is Pinehurst where they 
compete in a round-robin tourna- 
ment along with some prominent 
Ivy League colleges. From Pine- 
hurst they travel to Durham to 
meet Duke. 

North Carolina Finale 

A Chapel Hill contest with North 
Carolina will be the last southern 
match for the Ephmen, who then 
head north to prepare for the 
season's opener against Bowdom 
on April 27. 

Last year's southern trip was 
not very successful, as the Purple 
dropped their three matches to 
Virguiia, Yale, and Duke, though 
not without putting up a very 
fine showing in the final two con- 

Late Spring Hurts 

To a large degree the Eph's 
southern losses can be traced to 
the perennially late Berkshire 
spring which does not allow out- 
door practice prior to the trip. 
This handicap places the Purple 
at a great disadvantage since golf 
is a year round sport in the south

the winter months in Florida, will

O l951.Thp Coca-Colo Conpoiy 

by Frank Olmsted 

F'or the past three weeks Coach 
Tony Plansky's varsity track squad 
has been working out on the Old 
Campus board track m active pre- 
paration for the spring season, 
which opens April 21 with a dual 
meet against Middlebury College 
on the Middlebury cinders. With a 
large turnout of more than 35 men 
Plansky will be trying to duplicate 
the undefeated record of last sea- 

The Ephmen face powerful and 
determined opposition, especially 
in Little Three competition; a 
hard-running Amherst squad al- 
ready boasts a record of three in- 
door victories. Furthermore, when 
the Purple meets this rejuvenated 
competition a number of yester- 
year's stalwarts will not be on 
hand to toe the mark: lost by 
graduation are sprinter Sky 
Brooks, distance men Kevin Del- 
any, Pliil Collins and Harry Ess, 
jumpers Steve Pinkerton, Stan 
Roller and Ed Goulnlock, and de- 
pendable weightmen Tom Edwards 
and Marty Detmer. 

Hurdlers Strong 

But the departure of these men 
has by no means crippled the Pur- 
ple team as in most cases adequate 
replacements liave come forward. 
Only in the two-mile, hammer, dis- 
cus and javelin has there been any 
significant reduction in point- 
winning prospects, while the out- 
look is definitely better in both 
hurdle events, where the same 
capable performers will have the 
advantage of another year of ex- 

Competing in the 100 and 220 
are Jack Brody Al Fletcher and 
Bob Jones, all leading members of 
the winter track squad; after 
their century and furlong duties, 
the later two will join Pete Smith 
in the quarter-mile. Veterans 
George Steinbrenner, Gus Camp- 
bell and co-captain Pete Maxwell, 
plus soph Bill Williams, are slated 
for the hurdles, and are expected 
to show very good form. 
New Distance Talent 

Even with Delany gone, the 
Ephs are still loaded in the half- 
mile and mile. In the shorter cir- 
cuit, stars Jim Haskell and co- 
captain Walt Ziegenhals, both of 
whom have done 1 ;57, are support- 
ed by John Freese, HarryYiede and 
Pete Cosgriff. Haskell will double 
in the mile, competing with Bruce

CBM Expansion Needs Support 

unknown field of cooperative fraternity buyint;. Today, Williams 
College is unwillinu to step out actively into ii well-charted and 
proven field. 

Use Loan tu Kinaiiue Warehouse 

To finance the expansion of the Association at OreBon State, 
every active fraternity and soiority member contributed $20, a method 
which raised $20,000. This sum was carried on tlie books as a mem- 
bership loan and was used as u working fund for the first year. Goods 
were sold at low retail rates, with a 10 per cent discount allowed on 
the monthly statement. 

In 1921, this discount was cut to 5 per cent, the other 5 per cent 
being used to form permanent working capital. The excess profits were 
used to pay oft the student membership loans, all of which were re 
paid by 1926. At present, the Association allows a discount of 20 
per cent. 

The Williams undergraduate body will NOT have to contribute 
$20 per student to finance the expansion of CBM and the construc- 
tion of a warehouse. As was pointed out in the RECORD three weeks 
ago, CBM hopes to finance such an operation by a loan. CBM could 
repay this loan by operating at a profit for the first few years, or, 
if the loan were made as an investment by the creditor, the Interest 
could be charged to operating costs. 

\o Elaborate Facilities Required 

In 1922, Oregon State's Association built its own warehouse, a 
building which, together with its lot, is now valued at $17,766.83. 
In -924 a meat shop, fully equipped with cold storage lockers, an 
electric saw, blocks, and slicers was installed. The building is a simple, 
one-story concrete structure measuring 100x50 feet, with a full- 
sized basement. Vegetables are stored in the cool cellar, and bins are 
provided on the main floor for the storage of dry goods. Daily orders 
are made up and shipped out in tlie Association's two trucks. 

These relatively simple facilities handle the demands of approx- 
imately 1,800 students in 41 fraternities. Williams has less than 
1,100 students and only 16 social units. The facilities required to 
handle this volume of trade could be even less elaborate than those 
at Oregon. The Oregon warehouse was built when construction costs 
were low. A similar arrangement for Williams would probably cost 
$45,000, but this is not a prohibitive expense in modern teiins. 

Can Be Financial Success 
During the period from 1920-1948, the Oregon Association's 
operating costs have averaged 7% per cent of total sales. During the 
first few years of operation and during the depression these costs 
reached a peak of 12 per cent, and in the 1946-1948 period they lev 
elled off to 5 per cent. By way of comparison, the 1947 average operat 
ing costs for small businesses in the United States were 13 per cent 
of total sales. 

These facts all point in the same direction. CBM can con- 
struct a warehouse and expand its activities. Such an undertaking 
has proved to be financially successful and able to stand the test of 
the country's severest depression and a global war. THERE IS NO

The Dairy Lunch 

Seven years before that, Bridge- 
man had been a partner with Ed- 
die Dempsey in the prosperous Col- 
lege Restaurant. In the middle 
twenties he split with Dempsey to 
found the Dairy Lunch, a small 
establishment located in what is 
now the Bemis Store. 

As business conditions contin- 
ued downhill, the shrewd Bridge- 
man, seeing the handwriting on 
the wall, sold out in 1928 and 
founded the Gym Lunch with 
Bleau. The competition of two 
other restaurants on Spring Street 
proved too much for the decrepid 
Dairy Lunch which promptly fold- 
ed. All usable equipment was then 
taken over by the Gym Lunch. 

Commenting on business condi- 
tions on the Street during the de- 
pression days of the thirties, Louis 
Bleau, former owner, stated 
"Things were pretty tough. . .why, 
meat was so hard to get that we 
used to have to go out to the 
country and buy it on the hoof. I 
remember turkeys and chickens 
were pretty easy to get, though. 
New Improvements 

Among several improvements 
made to the lunch room during 
that period was the installation of 
the first restaurant stools on 
Spring Street. "In '32 stools were 
a big attraction for the boys", 
commented Bleau. 

Business activity for the Gym 
Lunch and Spring Street was jar. 
red back to normal, and then stim. 
ulated to lever pitch by the on- 

vllle. The only change he made 
was to remove the cafeteria count- 
er from the back wall and install 
a counter running along the side 
of the building. 


For the first year of Mike's re- 
gime the students indulged m es- 
capists efforts to forget the Im- 
pending war. Every fraternity had 
its own table and on weekends 
the glee club came down to lead 
a song fest. In those days of the 
gathering storm. Professor Schu- 
man held round table discussions 
there every Thursday night, at 
which time he and other thought- 
ful souls pondered the war ci'isis. 

One evening in March, 1941, the 
shadow of sin fell the Street 
as rumor spread that two females 
of doubtful reputation liad estab- 
lished headquarters at the Col- 
lege Restaurant. 

Cow Comment 

The Purple Cow commented on 
the event saying "To Mike, the 
popularity of his NEW College 
Restaurant was all that he could 
ask for. The new fixtures had 
brought the boys. Louie and Gus 
sat next door wondering when the 
New York police would send them 
manna from Manhattan. It was a 
commentary on humanity." 

The year 1943 brought the V-5 
and V-12 students to Billville. For 
the first few weeks Spring Street 
was quite chaotic, but after they 
were forbidden to buy alchoholic 
beverages, they became model citi-

All Social Units Must Back CBM Warehouse Plan 

Reduced Dining Cost^Scenl 
As Check to Communal ^Eating 


Mr. Praiik Thorns, Director of Campus Business ManaBemenl, 
outlined a workable plan to iJrovitle a for the Wllllamii 
campus at the UC meeting Monday night. By October Williams can 
have centralized food purchasing and with it, substantial savings on 
everyone's board bill each month. There is only one remaining obstacle 
ill tlie path to cheaper living costs at Williams - the need of one 
liutulred per cent support of Mr. Thorns' plan by the .social units. Once 
that is achieved, the plan will be presented to the trustees for approval. 

Endorsement of CBM food buying by most fraternity houses 
should come as a matter of course. Such a program would be welcomed

Using information taken from 
ihc experience gained in the con- 
.sl ruction of a similar storage plant 
ill Bowdoin, Thorns stated that 
Williams could have its own plant 
working by October. 

It the .set-up at Bowdoin is cop- 
ii'd. CBM could have its ware- 
liouse at the initial cxix>nse of 
S4.').000 secured on a loan from the 
ciillcge. Thorns explained. Presi- 
(kut Baxter has made it clear that 
ihc college will not consider mak- 
iiiK the loan unless such a pro.|ect 
has the complete support of the 
.social units. 

Bowdoin Plant 

Tlioms outlined the situation at 
Bowdoin and showed that Wil- 
liams could copy it profitably in 
almost every detail. The Maine 
lollege set up its Centralized Din- 
ing Rr;?m Service live years ago to 
iflJeve many of the same prob- 
lems which face CBM. Bowdoin's 
set-iip, however, included the us- 
ini.' of a Navy warehouse for food 

Recently the Navy has reacti- 
vated its and ordered Bow- 
doin to vacate the warehouse, aj 
move which forced Bowdoin to I 
lany out their original plan andj 
Ijulld their own warehouse. |

Warehousr Advantages 

Under the Bowdoin system, 
which Williams may follow, bills 
:ire sent out and collected through 
I lie college. 

This Insures each fraternity of

cation of .services and mass buying 
reduce weekly bills as much as $3 
below the $15.50 average which 
Williams students are now paying. 

rhis system does not mean 
standardization of men\is or the 
removal of guest privileges. Each 
fratei-nity goes on a budget set 
up according to the number of its 
members. Extra charges would not 
be made for houseparty weekends 
and other occasions when more 
food is consumed. The houses, 
however must meet their budgets 
over a period of time. 

See Page 4, Col. 1 

because of the lower Indvidual food costs It would make possible. 
Furthermore, it would assure a high standard of quality of food. It 
would also make it possible to cut the kitchen payroll, since cooks 
would no longer be able to demand higher wages as compensation 
for doing the food buying. 

Communal Eatine an Alternative 

Some houses may feel that their present arrangement for 
supplying food would be more satisfactory because of peculiar in- 
dividual problems or agreements they may have. A careful con- 
sideration of the long-range alternatives, however suggests that the 
best interests of everyone will be served by CBM food buying. 

Reduced enrollment will put the pinch in everyone's pocket, 
because the fewer people each house has for eating, the greater is the 
cost to each individual. Should freshman eating go into effect, and 
there is considerable pressure from some quarters to bring it about 
soon, board bills would skyrocket, perhaps as much as $5 per week 
per man. The most probable long-range development would be com- 
munal eating tor everybody. 

Outside Pressure to Keduce Costs 

For a number of years there has been considerable pressure from 
alunuii and faculty circles to adopt a communal eating system here to 
reduce the cost of a Williams education, to foster school spirit, and 
other reasons. Undergraduate opinion, on the other hand, has been 

quite strongly in favor of continuing the present system, which, while 
more expensive, is certainly more pleasant. CBM food buying now 
provides the answer in so far as board costs can be reduced and the 
social unit eating system preserved. 

Should a small minority of houses fail to support the CBM ware- 
,house proposal at this time, it is quite probable that before much 
longer communal eating will be introduced permanently at Williams. 
It would be an matter to include a central dining room in the 
plans for the new student union, and it is no secret that such a 
proposal has been given some serious thought by a number of people. 
No Cost to Students 

The adoption of communal eating, naturally, would put an end 
to all social unit eating, and consequently, all present arrangements 
with kitchen help, buyers, and so on. It is clear that in the long run 
It would be much better to make the best of the present situation and 
make such clianges as are needed to forestall commuital eating, which 
in llie end would be considerably more unsatisfactory to all concerned. 

There can be no question, therefore, that every student on the 
campus in the long run has everything to gain by supporting CBM 
food buying. It will not cost anybody anything. On the contrary, it 
will save everybody a great deal. Weighing the alternatives to the 
Tlioms plan, one liundred per cent student cooperation now can go a 
long way toward preventing communal eating in the future.

Reviewer Praises 'Othello'; 
Lauds Luthy's Performance 
In Well Directed Tragedy 

by Joseph P. McElroy 

Just before spring recess the Adams Memorial Tlieatre presented 
Shakespeare's "Othello"' in a creditably acted and handsomely 
dressed production. If tliere were moments when one might have 
wished for stage-speech of a more spirited and plangent nature, 
these were fortunately few and were seldom due to lapses among the 
"Othello" is difficult to produce O 

effectively, not only because of its iievable; he speaks clearly and 

varied scenic backgrounds, but 
especially in its characterizations, 
lago. though a wonderfully virt- 
uoso villain, tends to dominate the 
play's early movement to such an 
extent that Othello often seems 
too pliant to emerge a personage 
of the stature of a Hamlet. Mac- 
beth, or Brutus. 

Difficult to Direct 

I have always felt that Othello's 
tragedy is shadowed by lago's 
shrewdly-maneuvered psychology 
and that the pity we feel for the 
Moor fails to grow into the belief 
tliat he is a commanding person- 
ality. We know he is a brilliant 
warrior, that his is a pure, fiery 
virtue, but Othello's naive trust 
is, from the standpoint of credi- 
bility, possibly too vuhierable a 
mark for a cleverly deceiving 

Thus, when the play is acted, 
a director must cope with the 
fascination an audience feels for 
lago. Othello must be the central 
figui-e. Wliether one agrees with 
this criticism, there appears no 
question that "Othello " glows with 
some of Shakespeare's gripp- 
ing speeches, with magnificent 
rhetoric and splendid imagery 
Lnthy Powerful 

In the title role Martin Luthy 
was powerful. His reading was, for 
the most part, exciting and be- 

with a fine deep resonance in his 
voice. The scene at the end of 
Act II between Othello and lago 
was Mr. Luthy's biggest moment, 
I felt, in a vivid portrayal. Ray- 
mond Smith's lago was a very 
effective compound of subtle malice 
and lethal wit; his enunciation 
and inflection were always artful, 
and, though lago is a relatively 
unmotivated diabolist, Mr. Smith's 
versatility and control made for 
a credible interpretation. Cathy 
Martin, as Desdemona, was per- 
haps too prone to rely on obvious 
pathos, but the role was given a 
graceful and often moving qual- 

Jane Flory as Emilia 

In the part of Emilia, Jane 
Flory gave a pungent reading, 
especially in the stormy finale. 
John Frankenhelmer was enter- 
taining as the gullible and Im- 
becilically generous Roderlgo; he 
was a fine comic foil for lago. I 
found Edwin Matus agreeable as 
Cassio, but thought his speech 
might have been Improved with 
a bit more precision and gusto. 
Allen Good was an excellent Bra- 
bantio. but I encountered diffi- 
culty in understanding what Bi- 
anca (Ruth Wyim) was making so 
much fuss about. A grander, more 
stylized delivery would have

M^/to's Sensational? 

W'arekouse Can Wait 

To the Editor ot the WiUiams RECORD: 

With your kind iudulBencf, I wish to reply to tlie commeiUs ot 
Mr. WilUam Widing in tlie March 24 issue of tlie RECORD regarding 
CBM. Since we liappen to be closely acquainted with the problems of 
CBM and fields related to it, perhaps we can speak with as much 
autliority as Mr. Widing. 

To maintain tlie present food standards in the fraternities, as 
well as pioviding guest entertainment free of cliarge, it is apparent 
that small groups will have very rough going. The importance of the 
board bill in the total cost of attending college is so great, that a 
comprehensive study of the problem should be undertaken immediately 
if Williams is to compete successfully with other small colleges. There 
is more to the problem of lowering food costs than meets the eye. or 
than Mr. Widing may envision. 

To build a warehouse and stock it with merchandise at this 
time, seems to us like playing the stockmarket; first you piay to 
win, and then you play to make up your losses. Before the outbreak 
of fighting in Korea, tlie construction of a warehouse might have been 
a good idea: today it would be a big gamble, sometime in the future 
it may again be feasible. It sou purcliase food at high prices now, 
when prices tall you may be .stuck with heavy losses. This too could 
mean the handwriting on the wall for CBM. The only gamble on whicli 
you would have a sporting chance would be meat storage and the 
initial investment in refrigerating expenses is substantial. If you wish 
to maintain the standards of feeding, production, and morale in your 
fraternities, you must "look before you order 'jump' ". 

CBM Given No Chance 

Several pertinent alternatives are available. The best real answer 
would seem to be central feeding, which could permit all campus 
groups to eat well at lowest possible cost. At present, the college doesn't 
want to adopt this solution, so another alternative must be examined. 

CBM stands for Campus Business Management. Reports so far 
indicate that it has acted more in an advisory capacity than in a 
management capacity. It has also had little business control. In short, 
CBM has not been successful because it has not been permitted to do 
its job. We all know that you cannot get something for nothing. Why 
then do we expect CBM to work such miracles'.-' As every good 
businessman knows, you cannot have efficiency with excessive 
autonomy. You must select one or the other. Thus far, the members 
of CBM have decided to keep maximum autonomy with the resulting 
high costs. 

Central Buying Without Warehouse 

A better idea would be to let CBM do what its name implies: have 
a qualified campus food manager attached to CBM in charge of 
planning uniform menus for all the houses. He could then order all 
the food at the same time fiom the bigger coiicems, and have it 
delivered to Williamstown by the truckload and distributed as needed 
to the houses. 

The campus food manager could simultaneously control the stan- 
dard of the incoming food, the quantity distribution, the of 
purchase, and the inventories, and thus be able to cut down costs. 
Next to central eating, this would be the best method for cutting down 
the board bills. 

At the present time this is probably the best advice from a low- 
cost efficiency standpoint. All the warehouses on earth couldn't reduce 

Joseph F. Bush, Stewart of Garfield Club 
David Fischer, '51 


A Reply to Mr. Bush and Mr. Fischer 

Under all proposed plans for CBM food buying operations, the 
assumption has been that CBM would act simply as a wholesale buyer 
and distributor. There has been no suggestion that CBM would specu- 
late in foodstuffs. Indeed, the proposed warehouse dimensions would 
make the accumulation ot large quantities of food impossible. The 
warehouse will serve as storage space only in the short rim. 

From a strict economy viewpoint, central eating would no doubt 
be the best answer, but as Mr. Bush and Mr. Fischer point out, the 
college is opposed to this solution. A majority of students feel that 
social unit eating is worth some extra money, and that the cooking, 
service, and general atmosphere of the small dining room is much 
more pleasant than that of a large cafeteria. 

It is certainly true that CBM cannot operate efllciently if indi- 
vidual social units retain excessive autonomy. On the other hand, CBM 
has not demonstrated in the past that it wanted more central power. 
It was less a question of CBM not being permitted to do Its job tlian 
of it not taking the initiative in this line. 

If some degree of saving can be achieved through central buying 
without a warehouse, this would certainly be desirable as an in- 
terim expedient. Individual .social units, however, do not in most 
cases have large storage facilities. The expense of frequently truck- 
ing in deliveries would limit the practicality of this .solution. 

CBM must have a before any substantial reduction m 
food costs can be effected. Mr. Bush and Mr. Pi.scher state that "AH 
the warehouses on earth couldn't reduce costs." We believe not only 
that a would decisively reduce costs, but that CBM cannot 
.survive without one. 

I'o the Editor of the Williams RECORD: 

Mr. William Widiiigs article concerning CBM and its future, 
whicli appeared in ihe ivlarch 24 issue of the RECORD, brings to 
light two very basic needs here ut Williams at the present time. One 
IS a really sober evaluation ol CBM, its problems now and in the im- 
meuiaie luture, and the other is the need lor tne UECOltU editorial 
stun to rapidly alter its policy with regard to tlio liaiulling ot iiiipor- 
laiit campus issues. 1 should like to eiiiboiate briefly on these two 
points m the hope that some of the "smoke" can be cleared away from 
these important problems so the fire can be fought ul its source. 

As to the RECORD, Mr. Widing's article, which I assume repre- 
sents the opinion of the editorial stall as a whole, not only was in 
very bad taste because of its obvious appeal to sensationalism in 
touching a serious subject but also because Mr. vVulmg and your 
sialf as a wtioie hidulged in dishonest journalism. It is obvious that 
CBM, i.e. the managers, not only did not promise a luod wareiiouse 
within two years, but could not possibly provide such a building un- 
der any circumstances witliout outside aid. Further, Mr. Widing's 
statement that "CBM in over a year lias put forth no plans for be- 
ginning the program" is completely dishonest because, as you know 
only too well, a full two weeks before his article was conceived his 
associate and co-managing editor, George Kinter, sat in the office 
of Mr. Frank Thorns and listened to a confirmation tlial blueprints 
and cost figures for the new warehouse at Bowdoin were being for- 
warded to Williams for our consideration. This was only the latest 
in a long series of investigations carried on by CBM over the past 
year with regard to the actual physical requirements and constitution 
of a food warehouse liere at Williams. We feel justified in stating that 
the RECORD lias been highly unjust in blaming the managers of 
CBM for the lack of defliiile action on a warehouse under present

It's Your Club -- We Hope You'll Use It 

You may ask "Just what are these conditions'?" Well, let's look 
tor a moment at the situation here at Williams. In the first place, a 
warehouse can be financed here in one of two ways: either by a be- 
quest or loan from the College or some outside source, i.e. alumni, 
etc.. or by an assessment on the current undergraduate membership 
of CBM. The latter would be highly unfair iiowever, as the benefit 
derived from the investment would not return investors, as most of 
them will have graduated before any warehouse program reaches 
Its operating peak. And. realistically excluding the "outside source" 
ol funds, the College itself remains as the logical source of funds. 

the Administration is committed to erecting a new Garfield 
Ciub, so it has the choice ot providing facilities for CBM in that build- 
ing or giving or loaning CBM the funds for a separate structure, 
t'lierefoie. the crux of the whole problem is this choice, wlilch rests 
wail the 1-resident and Trustees. Once it is made, the managers of 
CUM can act accordingly, and the blueprints, facts, figures, and finan- 
cial details have been ready for some time. 

One more point. For the RECORD to set itself up as THE re- 
fiector of student opinion by the bold use of subheads like "Student 
Opinion Against CBM". when the facts available are directly to the 
contrary, is not only highly di.shonest but a dangerous policy a.s well, 
as far as the reputation of your jviper is concerned. I do not wish to 
tell you how to run your paper — that is far from the purpose of 
this letter. But I do feel that in the treatment of important campus 
Lssues. much more is to be gained by a complete and fair evaluation 
of the problem and its possible .solutions, than through a juvenile 
and unfair appeal to sensationalism.

At the end of Spring St. 

by Wuudy U'Oencli 

After Bivinii up 30 Boals in the 
first two Bumes of their sprinu 
trip into the Southlands, Coach 
Harvey Potler'.s Williams lacrosse 
team settled d<m'n and won two of 
tlieu' Ihrei' games. The Pur- 
ple slickmen downed North Caro- 
lina and Western Maryland, but 
wound up on the wrong end of 
tlie .score ni tlieir meetings with 
Army,Maryland and Uuke. 

In the opener on March 31 Ar- 
my proved to be far superior in a 
124-3 game played in the Cadets 
spacious lield Williams, .suf- 
fering noticeably from first-game 
jitters, was further upsel by the 
Aimy team whicli play<'d hard 
right from the .start. 

Defense Poor 

Many bad mistakes were obvious 
in the Purple defense as the Ca- 
dets iJiled up the score. The ball 
was seldom in the Army half of 
the Held, but on three occasions 
the Williams' attack managed to 
score. Frenchy Oudin counted 
twice and Ted Mitchell got the 
other goal. 

The Sunny South was anything 
but for llie Maryland game April 
;!. The rain and resultant sloppy 
field gave an added advantage to 
the Marylanders and their super- 

ed improvement in Coach Potter's 
charges, who were begiirning to 
show the ellects of a little ex- 

Gain First Win 

North Carolina provided the 
opposition for the next game and 
was whipped thoroughly by the 
visiting Yankees, 14-2. Captain 
Oordie McWilliums tossed in 3 
goals from his attack position, and 
John Nelson did the .same as a 
midfielder. Two games and the 
same number of practices on the 
trip had improved the Ephmen 
immensely, as many of their pre- 
vious mistakes were ironed out. 

In the fourth game Duke, a 
perennial less on the Williams re- 
cord, as usual got oW to a fast 
stall and kept the visitors at a 
safe distance throughout. Only in 
the last quarter did the losers gel 
moving, ouUscoring Duke, 3-2, in 
that period. 

Although the victors did take an 
early commanding lead, the 6-14 
game was well iJlayed throughout,] 
and would probably have been! 
.somewhat closer except for sev- 
eral key Purple injuries. McWil- 
liams was lost temporarily and 
Oudin had reaggravated a charley- in the Maryland game. 
Make Successful Knding: 

The touring slickmen brought 
their trip to a happy ending with 
a 13-3 rout of Western Maryland. 
McWilliams returned to the line- 
up to lead the scoring with 4 
markers. Nel.son again contributed 
2 more goals to the total. This

Spring Street Est. 1901 

Eph racquetmen lost four out of 
five matches during the annual 
spring tour of the South by the 
varsity tennis team. The Chaffee- 
men defeated the Country Club 
of Vliginia, while losing to Duke, 
the University of Virginia, and 
twice to the University of North 

After two days practice at Wil- 
liam and Mary College, the team 
engaged Duke University Tuesday 
afternoon, and were defeated 12-3. 
The only matches the Ephmen 
were able to win were number 
one man Dick Squires' 6-3, 6-3 tri- 
umph over John Ross, and vic- 
tories by the number one and 
live doubles combos of Squires and 
Tom Kent, and George Muller and 
Tom Williams. 

Tarheels Win Twice 

In tile first of two matches at 
the University of North Carolina 
the Purple ten managed to win 
five of the fifteen matches. Pour 
of the wins were in the singles 
played by Soapy Symington, Rog 
Dickin.son, Pete Pickard, and 
George Mullei-. Muller and Sym- 
ington came through in the third 
doubles match with a 6-1, 6-3 

The team fared little better in 
theii' second match with the Tar- 
heels, lo.sing 9-C. Squires rallied 
in the third set to defeat Bob Lux- 
enburg 6-2, 4-6, 6-3. while Sym- 
ington again won in two straight. 
Dickinson and Pickard were forc- 
ed to win in three sets, but Muller 
easily trounced his opponent. 6-0,

I'resident Opposes Bill 
Against College Reds 

A UM'l' bill, differnig in many 
respects from the Senate measure 
of March 8, has finally been passed 
in llie House. The biggest of these 
differences is a clause requiring 
another act of Congress to put 
this training into effect, while 
the upper house had no such stip- 
ulaliun to offer. 

To the college student, one of 
the most important provisions in 
the House bill is an amendment, 
IJii.ssed lust week, which would give 
the local draft boards the oppor- 
tunity to Ignore, if they wish, the 
results of till; aptitude tests pro 
vided for in the recent executive 

Age Difference 

The current House bill calls for 
the drafting of 18 Vi year-olds for 
a period of active service of twen- 
ty six months. On the other hand 
the Senate measure calls for the 
driiflmg of 18 year-olds and the 
term of service would be twenty 
four inonllis. Both provisions 
would lake effect only after the 
19 to 26 age group had been ex- 

Ulher differences include the 
period of active and inactive duty 
re(julred. Tlie Senate measure stip- 
ulates that, after active .seniie 
has been completed, service in 
a Reserve or National Guard Unit 
IS i-equired to fill out a total of 
eight years. The calls for 
a I dial of only six years. 

Number Limit the bill would re- 
(luire the draft act to terminate 
after three years and places no 
limit on the number of men in 
the armed .service. The Senate 
liuts no termination on the act 
and limits tlie number of men to 
four million. 

Disagreements between the two 
houses arc to be ironed out and 
no measures will take effect un- 
til a compromise bill has been 
ratified by both bodies. 

U. K to Take 


For opposing the proposed Mass- 
achusetts bill to revoke the char- 
ters of colleges employing Com- 
munists or Communist sympa- 
thizers President James P. Bax- 
ter ;ird was included in charges 
that the bill's opponents were 
either "exploited or duped or are 
part of an international conspir- 

Thomas Dorgan, clerk of Suft- 
olf suiJerior court at Boston, lev- 
eled these accusations at the Stale 
House hearing on the bill April 
2. President Baxter had earlier 
relayed his opposition to the i)ro- 
posal via Harvard's Prank W. 
Crocker, who spoke at the hearing. 
An Incredible Burden 
Crocker said tliat Harvard would 
dismiss a known Communist from 
llieir .staff, but that the bill as 
drawn would place an incredible 
burden on college presidents, for 
cing them to act as police, pros- 
ecutors and judges in trying to 
determine who might be a "Com- 
munist sumpathizer". 

President Baxter, who had auth- 
orized Crocker to speak for Will- 
iams, voiced his views on the 
matter in the North Adams Tran- 
script a day later, saying, "If 
Williams College had an avowed 
Communist on its faculty we 
would move to get rid of him." 
Adding tliat he thought the pro- 
posed bill was a badly drawn one. 
President Baxter asked "How are 
you going to tell who is a Com 
munist sympathizer'.'" 

More (loiispiraiors 
I'resumably Dorgan also included 
in his list of dupes and conspirators 
the other opponents of the bill. 
Included in this group are Smith 
and Wheelock colleges, MIT, the 
League of Women Voters, the A- 
merican Association of University 
Women, the Americans for Dem- 
ocratic Action, the Massachusetts 
Civil Liberties Union and the Mass- 
achusetts Council of Churches. 

Joining Dorgan in criticizing 
the detractors of the bill. Rep. 
Paul A. McCarthy iD - Somer- 
ville 1 said that many Harvard and 
MIT professors have been linked 
with Communist or Commtmist- 
front organizations and that Com- 
munism is a "clear and present 
danger" in Massachusetts.

will have a good chance of being 
among those chosen for the pro-

Total Profits Last 
Year Top $7000 

by Dicit Porter 

Aside from waiting on jobs, the 
most profitable occupation a stu- 
dent can find on campus is with 
one of the concessions, which range 
from the tried-and-true newspaper 
agencies to such transient services 
as the shining of shoes and supp- 
lying of firewood. 

The concessions, one of which 
can be started by anyone after 
submitting his plans to Mr. Flynt, 
who checks the legality of the 
operations, earned a net income 
of approximately $7,000 for the 
84 students who worked for them 
last year. The total should be even 
higher this year. 


Especially popular since the 
student is on his own, concessions 
at Williams have usually flou- 
rished or failed according to the 
amount of time and initiative put 
Into them by their backers. 

Many of tlic 30 campus con- 
cessions change ownership soon, 
leaving many positions open to 
freshmen and sophomoi-es who 
have a liking for money, work and 
headaches. Some of the concess- 
ion ownerships are sold by the

its doors within six months according to Cal King, owner of the 
town's one movie house. A combination of the accelerated cost of 
living, heavy competition from North Adams, and television may force 
owner King to take the drastic step. 

King blames part of his present financial woes on the fact that 
many Ephmen won't wait tlie extra few days between the appearance 
of a first run flick in North Adams and its Walden premier. "If only." 
stated King, "they'd wait for the picture, they'd save time, trouble, 
and car fare. . .Remember, there hasn't been a big pictui'e that's

Early History 

"The flicks " have been part of 
the campus scene since the 
Thanksgiving of 1916 when Hiram 
Walden opened the movie house 
bearing his name in its present 
building, once the Spring Street 
quarters of Sigma Phi. Walden, 
the .son of one of the town's early 
settlers, ran the theatre until 1922 
when he sold out to two New York 
men. Art Thorinton and Byron 
Harrington. That .same year Cal 
King started in to work at the 
Iheater as a projectionist.

'I'lie Undergraduate Council in 
a dinner meeting held at President 
Baxter's home Monday evening 
voted to construct a poll to deter- 
mine exactly how many students 
will delinitely attend a summer 
session. The council decided to 
lake this survey a week from today 
Tills action was taken at the re- 
quest of tlie administration who 
made it clear that the number of 
definite summer enroUees must be 
ascertained at this time in order 
tor the faculty and the adminis- 
iration to plan the summer term 
on some concrete basis. 

l*ositive Answer Imperative 
Members of the UC stressed that 
students must not hedge the ques- 
tion by answering yes merely to 
be on the safe side. If the number 
of students indicating definite 
plans to attend the summer ses- 
sion is between 350 and 400 regis- 
tration will begin almost immed- 
iately. This figure will include in- 
coming freshmen polled this week 
by the Admissions ofBce. 

Students wlio answer yes on the 
questionnaire will be asked to in- 
dicate the courses they desire to 
take, and sophomores must show 
what major they wish to enter. 
Deferment Possibilities 
Baxter stated that the confer- 
ence committee in Congress iron- 
ing out the differences between the 
House and Senave draft bills will 
probably not agree on anything 
definite within the next ten days. 
Since both the House and Senate 
agree on the presidential power to 
issue executive deferments, this 
power will ijrobably be included in 
the next draft law. 
He stated that there is a veiy 
rent likelihood that draft boards 
will follow the Hershey plan. This 
order as it now stands defers stu- 
dents who are either in the upper

Baxter Advises Taking Test 
Calling this plan undemocratic, 
the House decided that local 
boards should determine the 
weight of class standings and test 
results in giving deferments. For 
this reason Baxter stated that he 
would advise no student to miss 
taking the selective service tests. 

"With the new draft bill in con- 
ference, students will not be able 
to find out their definite status 
before the college administration 
must start planning the summer 
term unless their local boards can 
enlighten them. 

Dean Brooks asserted that ap- 
proximately V5J of the students 
with whom he has discussed draft 
difficulties have felt that they can 
get through at least one more year 
regardless of the accelerated pro- 
gram. The other 25% expressed a 
desire for acceleration largely for 
reasons other than the draft. 
No Further Delay

What Next? 

For months college students across the country have been an- 
xiously awaiting the verdict on their status under the new draft law 
After weeks of committee and floor discussion, the House has finally 
completed its version which must now go to conference for recon 
ciliation witii the Senate bill. 

General Hershey's controversial deferment plan has been retained 
in form but scrapped in substance. As previously announced, the 
tests will be given for all college students but the decision to make 
them the basis of deferment rests solely with the discretion ot the 
local draft board. From the outset General Hershey's scheme provoked 
considerable criticism, most of wliicli attacked the plan as undemo 
cratic and warned that it would incite a public reaction against 
colleges and college students. Actually, it now appears that the plan 
never was intended as a blanket deferment and always provided that 
local boards would have the fUial say. 

As a result, college students have been thrown back into the 
same confused state they were m last winter. Every important deci- 
sion concerning their future rests with their local board. It would 
seem on the face of it that the present pending setup fails to achieve 
the democratic solution people want. In one local board all college 
students might conceivably be deferred, while at another all might be 
drafted. Where this can happen, deserving students that have shown 
real ability might be taken into the armed forces while others un 
deserving of deferment might be able to wangle themselves a four 
year pass. Under the proposed system an infinite number of un 
democratic possibilities might arise. 


Nor is there any provision under the proposed scheme for college 
juniors who will have completed tlrree quarters ot their schooling 
tills June. Some will be taken, others will not. For many of them 
entrance into the service at this stage of the game would probably 
end their chances for obtaining their diploma. At the best, it would 
wreck havoc with the continuity of their education. A one-year defer- 
ment for these men whose value to the service would be greatly 
enhanced, does not seem undemocratic or imwarranted. 

In the long run the only solution to the manpower problem is 
the adoption of Universal Military Service as envisioned by President 
Baxter and other leaders. Problems of this nature can only be handled 
by rules and procedures which are nation-wide in scope. Local boards 
are simply not in a position to take all the factors into consideration 

So four months later, we are in exactly the same pickle we 
found ourselves before. Students still have no idea where they 
stand and no overall policy on students has evolved. Some quarters 
predict more student deferments, others predict less. Where we go 
from here only t'me will tell. 

Williams Professor Protests 
Deferment of College Students 

The following letter to the editor, written by Prof. Charles Keller 
of the Williams College History Department, appeared in the April 
12 Issue of the "New York Times." 

To the Editor of the New York Times: 

I write to protest against President Truman's draft-deferment 
plan for college students. The country desperately needs its colleges, 
which will be in dire straits if the flow of students is drastically re- 
duced. The country needs trained and skilled men--in all flelds--and 
will suffer if the colleges and graduate schools do not have students 
to whom to give this training. But the President's deferment plan is 
very bad on practically every count. 

It will result in discrimination against poor boys and against the 
sections of the country where public education is not carried on at 
a high level. It will encourage going to college tor the wrong reason. 
It will keep in college many young men who have no business to be 

It will lower the moral standards of the country as parents and 
sons. . and even some educators, I fear. . .scurry about to find ways 
of getting the boys into colleges and keeping them there. It will be a 
boon to "shyster" colleges the country over. 

As an educator, I want to dissociate myself from the Truman 
deferment plan. I do not want to teach American histoiy to students 
who, by their very presence in college, will remind me that a .sharp 
blow has been dealt to American democracy. 

I must ask, too, how the required military force is to be raised 
if many college students are to be deferred. 

Charles R. Keller 
Chairman. History Department. Williams College.

Taken as a whole, the productions coming to Cal's Cinema this 
week are far above average. There is, therefore, little chance that 
anyone will be ejected (as a theater announcement threatens) for 
breaking the sanctoriai silence with sucli subtle signs of displeasure 
as derisive screams of laughter or loud munching of stale popcorn. 
(Tue-Wed-Thu: "Harvey.") Jimmy Stewart demonstrates again a 
versitility seen already in Westerns, comedies, mysteries, and dramas. 
He combines here with Josephine Hull and Victoria Home in one of 
the most amusing pictures of the year. (Stewart's facial expressions 
and especially that well known but unprintable type of grin) are worth 
tlie price of admission alone. The story is much too well known to 
comment on here. Certainly those who have not seen it shouldn't let 
it go by. 

(Fri-Sat; "Vengeance Valley.") Gene Autrey and Rocky Bridges (who 
owns the second smartest horse in the world) would do well to see 
this movie and find out how a Western should be made. Sloppy 
sentiment is replaced by restrained realism. Fantastic fights in which 
the hero battles a batallion or two of desperadoes and then leaps on 
his horse witli each greasy lock of l»alr firmly in position, are replaced 
by two bloody, evenly matched bouts, and, most invigorating of all, 
the hero's only love interest is not in iris liorse. As a matter of fact, 
the plot starts to thicken here when the hero is suspected of being in 
some way involved in the production of an illegitimate child. Burt 
Lancaster, Robert Walker and Joanne Dru head the cast. 
(Co-feature: "Dumbo.") Like all Disney films, a good investment. 

(Son-Mon: "The Halls of Montezuma.") A realistic and dramatic 
movie of the miniature Hell which can result from the invasion of 
one small island. Wonderful color shots of flame throwing tanks, etc. 
Richard Widmark again demonstrates that he can do a good job 
outside the field of homocidal mania. 

(Tue; "Where the Pavement Ends.") Not reviewed at press time. 
Those who have seen it say that Dana Andrews has the lead. 



A few weeks ago we discussed several techniques for getting rides 
on the open road. It would not be amiss to include a few remarks on 
decorum. Once in the car there are two reasons for being as compat- 
ible witli the driver as possible. You do not want him to feel it was 
a mistake to pick you up because he may never pick up any more 
hikers. Furthermore if you really impress him he may take you out 
of his way to further your journey. 

As a general policy it is best to agree with everything the driver 
has to say, not obsequiously but rather in a thoughtfully surprised tone 
as though you were astonished that anyone else should hold the same 
deeply thought out opinion. Occasionally interject a "Oh, I never 
thought of that, I guess that's right." Eventually the driver will 
feel he is one of the world's ten best thinkers. If not disagreed with, 
the driver is less apt to take his eyes oH the road to argue with you 
If there are two persons in a car engaged in a heated discussion, 
refrain from entering the argument. If asked for an opinion, or to 
act as judge, laugh casually and plead that really you know nothing 
about the subject, even if it is your major. Unless the driver is 
smoking, always ask if you can smoke. The answer is invariably "Go 
right ahead" and the driver is impressed by your thoughtfulness. 

The best rides are with traveling salesmen. They go the fastest 
and the farthest and are often quite young. Some talk and some 
concentrate stiffly on the road. 

Next to the salesmen, rides with men from other colleges are the 
most effective, but never admit you have not heard of the driver's 
college. Just mumble, "Oh yes, I have heard that's a pretty fine place.' 
Don't start then to tell of the glories of a Williams education. 

Perhaps the most tedious driver is the man who gives you the big 
hearty welcome as you step on the car. "Why, I used to go to college 
myself," he says, giving you at least a verbal slap on the back. For the 
duration of the ride you hear of the escapades he and his friends 
undertook. Not for a second should you by word or expression intimate 
that you do not consider these little pranks the gamest amusement 
The expression on your face should be one of rapt fascination and 
envy for the good old days. At the end of each story there will be much 
laughter and an inquiry of, "Wasn't that a good one?" Grit your 
teeth, smile and mumble, "Yeah, that was a good one."

National League Pennant Predictions 

by Bob SimPHon 

picking the final standing of 
National League ball clubs in 
1951 can be little more than specu- 
lation. Every year the pennant 
cliase Is tight, and with the draft 
^s an additional equalizer this 
season will surely result in an- 
other blanket finish. 

Injuries and Uncle Sam will 
probably be the determinint' fac- 
tors in the senior circuit champ- 
ionship. There was a minimum of 
winter trading, but each club has 
brought up promising prospects 
{rom the minors. Their success or 
failui^ will also play a big part 
ill final NL standings. 

My choice for flag lionors are 
Durocher's New York Giants. 
Brooklyn will be hot on their heels 
anil should end up not more than 
tw(i sames off the pace. New York 
was the power during the last 
halt uf the 1950 race and should 
maintain that pace this year. 

If the Giants do cop the cher- 
islird banner. It will be In the 
nature of an upset. The Dodgers 
look best on paper. Nevertheless, 
are liurlers Sal Maglie, Jim Ilearn, 
anil l.arry Jansen backed by the 
.solid hitting of veterans and new 
comers should lead the Giants to 
(he World Series. 

Billy Southworth's Boston Braves 
behind last year's sixty victory 
trio. Sain, Spahn, and Bickford, 
should wind up with third place 
laurels about four games behind 

the leaders. Tills club suffered a 
spell of injuries to key players 
duriiiy llie '50 fray, but with their 
wounds healed the Braves should 
put in a strong bid for the NL 

Last year's champion Pliiladel- 
phia Phils slipped badly during 
the closlUK days of the campaign. 
They probably will not be far off 
the pace in '51 but in my opinion 
can do no belter than fourth. Upon 
the relief pitching of last season's 
star, Jim Konstanly, rests a large 
measure of the "Whiz Kids' " 

Playing Manager Marty Mar- 
lon's St. Louis Cards who each 
year turn in a sound performance 
will probably be under that blanket 
mentioned above but no higher 
than the fifth slot. Many games 
behind the Cards will trail the 
Cinuinnati Reds, Chicago Cubs, 
and Pittsburgh i>irates battling it 
out for the number six berth. 
This is the order in which these 
clubs should finish in October, 
but even on this end of the ladder 
the rare will lie a close one.

As tile .season's opener with the 
University of Massachusetts nears. 
Coach Bobby Coombs shifted his 
ball squad's preparation into high 
gear, putting liis charges througli , 
14 innings of Intra-squad combat 
last Saturday, the first practice 
game since vacation. 

The results of the two contests 
lessened considerably any doubts 
he had about the mound staff as 
tiie quartet of Bob Wiley, Mike 
Putter, Bob Olsson and Johnny 
Beard, the pi'obable flrst-line 
hurlers, gave up a total of but 
tliree runs as each went seven 

Thirty-one Strikes 

Though the pitching perform- 
ances were heartening, they added 
tremendously to Coombs' worries 
about the hitting prowess of his 
1951 nine. The batters garnered 
only 18 hits, 17 of them singles, 
while going down on strikes 31 

Coombs felt that tire cold day 
had something to do with the lack 
of power at the plate and also the 
fact that the pitchers are usually 
ahead of tlie batters at this time 
of the year. Another pleasant con- 
solation lie added was that "the 
pitching was probably as good as 
we'll .see all season." 

In the first game. Puffer and 
Beard liooked up in a tight pitch- 
ing duel which ended in a 1-1 
deadlock. Johnny Kulsar, tagging 
up after a long foul fly, came a- 
cross with the first stringers' tally. 
However, the "B" team tied it up 
when Joe Callalian scored on Bob 
Ouchterloney's single. 

Despite Olsson's five hitter in the 
.second game, the "A" team behind 
Bob Wiley's three-hit pitchmg 
took a 1-0 affair from the "B" 
team. Wiley further impressed the 
crowd with his 13 .stiike outs and 

two singles.

The varsity basketball team an- 
nounced last week the selection of 
Edwin Shudt and Paul Cramer as 
co-captains tor the 1951-52 season. 

Shudt. a member of Kappa Al 
pha, has played at a first-string 
guard position for the past two 
years. This year "Wyn" garnered 
114 points on 3'2 field goals and 
50 free-throws. From the free 
throw line he was the most ac- 
curate man on the team, counting 
fifty times in sixty tries. Besides 
basketball. Shudt also plays var- 
sity lacrosse, and he is a Junior 

Cramer Injured 

The other co-captain. Paul Cra- 
mer, was beset by injuries all 
through this season and as a re- 
.sult saw only limited action. Dur- 
ing his sophomore year however, 
he combined with Shudt to take 
care of the two back-court posi- 
tions. A Chi Psi. "Diz" also has 
earned two letters in varsity foot- 
ball and played on the freshman 
baseball team. He is also the ju- 
nior Honor system representative, 
and was vice-president of the 
freshman class. 

It was also announced last week 
that Josselyn Edwards had been 
chosen to succeed Dave Ruder as 
varsity Basketball manager, and 
that Chuck Owen '53 had been 
chosen assistant manager.

The Dekes, having already cap- 
tured the intramural basketball 
and swimming titles this winter, 
go after a clean sweep of winter 
competition when they tangle with 
tlie DU's in the playolls for the 
volleyball championship tonight 
in the gym. Both teams enter the 
final encounter with unblemished 
7-0 records established in their 
respective leagues. 

In the Monday - Wednesday 
league, tlie Dekes had little strong 
competition, their closest rival be- 
ing tlie ADs with a 5-2 record, 
followed by the Theta Delts and 
the Betes with 4-3 totals. The DU's 
also dominated their league, al- 
though the Phi Gams, with a 6-1 
record put up a stiff battle. 
Dekes Win Squash 

Before the end of the volleyball 
season, the Dekes also scored a 
thrilling victory over the Chi Psi's 
to take the squash title, their third 
championship of the winter. The 
Dekes were represented by Bruce 
Banta. and Phelps Edwards who 
each played one singles match and 
then combined for the doubles. 

Edwards opened by dropping a 
3-1 decision to Hank Norton of 
the Chipsi's. Banta, however, e- 
vened the score by downing Craig 
Biddle. The Deke duo then went 
on to win the doubles, 3-1, and 
annex the title. The Chi Psi's

Concessions • - ■ 

This competition has, according 
to one of the Student Laundry's 
heads, Ernie Lehman '51, been 
"a tremendous service to the stu- 
dents in that it has kept prices 
at a far lower rate than they would 
have been under a monopoly" 
This year the Student Laundry 
has added two types of piece rates 
to Its previous flat rate systems 
in an effort to improve its ser- 
vices. Despite the fact that the 
organization does over a thousand 
dollars more business than any 
other student concession, its prof- 
its are only the fourth highest- 
proof of its reasonable rates.

Although they are not subject

Other concessions, while they 
have not yet undergone the test 
of time, have proven large succ- 
esses in their first years of oper-

of such a business is the Student

The faculty will be led by his- 
tory professor Charles Keller, who, 
during the war when Softball was 
extremely popular, led another

acknowledged to be the best team 
on campus. Durmg this period, Mr 
Keller built up a reputation as

spending times, enjoyed the favor 
of a novelty. Following the popu- 
lar trends, the Walden was one of 
the theaters in western Mass- 
achusetts to install sound equip- 
ment early In 1930. 

Full Dress Event 

The first ■•talkie" shown at the 
Walden was •'The Grand Parade", 
■a gripping love-romance with 
Helen Twelvetrees and Fred Scott.' 
In honor of the occasion, the aud 
ience was jammed with Williams 
men — in tuxes and tails. 

In 1932 Cal King took over man- 
agement of the theater, leasing it 
from the owners. Two years later, 
the Walden made national head- 
lines as it refused to show William 
Randolph Hearst's '•Metrotone 
News", the result of a threatened 
boycott of the theater by angry 
students who objected to the 
••slanted, war mongering prejudice" 
of the offending newsreels. 

King Becomes Owner 

In 1946 King became full owner 
of the Walden and immediately 
leased it to the Franklin Amuse- 
ment Company, who changed the 
theater's name to the Taconlc. 
The Boston company ran the thea- 
ter until last April, when, after 
several month^s default on rent. 
King resumed management, and 
the Taconic became the Waldpn 
once more.

To Take College Test 

In a recent statement, Colonel 
Ciiester A. Furbish, State Director 
oi Selective Service, recommended 
mat all registrants for the draft 
lake the Selective Service Colleue 
Qu;ilification Test to be given on 
May 26, June 16 and June 30. 

Although at the present mo- 
iiieiit a student may qualify for oc- 
cupational deferment either by at- 
taining a designated minimum 
score on the test or by high sclio- 
la.stic standing in liis college class, 
conditions may so change that ful- 
fillment of both criteria will be- 
come necessary. 

Loral Draft Boards 

II was further revealed that the 
test scores or sctiolastic standing 
in college will be used by the local 
draft boards at their discretion in 
considering a registrant for oc- 
cupational deferment as a student 

These two criteria are to be used 
as variables which may be raised 
or lowered to either Increase or 
decrease the number of students 
in training, as the national inter 
csts may require. 

Williams Test Center 

Application blanlts for taking 
the examination and a Bulletin of 
Information designed to answer 
any question about the details of 
the test are available in the Stu- 
dent Aid Office. The test which 
will be conducted in 1200 examin- 
ation centers throughout the coun- 
try by the Educational Testing 
Service will be given at Williams 
(in May 26. 

On the application blank the 
registrant will designate an exam- 
ination center and its number, 
chosen from the list of centers 
and center numbers appearing in 
the Bulletin of Information. The 
Educational Testing Service will 
assign a registrant to the center 
requested or to the closest possible 
alternative center. Arrangements 
will be made to enable a student 
to take the test in the case of a 
conflict with a final exam.

Dr. David E. Roberts, Maicellus 
Hartley Professor of the Philos- 
ophy of Religion at Union Theo- 
logical Seminary. Roberts has held 
this position since July 1, 1950. 

Born in Omaha, Nebraska, Feb- 
ruary 9, 1911. Roberts is the son 
of the present minister of the 
First Presbyterian Church of Pasa- 
dena, California. After receiving 
his B.A. from Occidental College 
in 1931, lie trained for the ministry 
at Union, where he took his 
Bachelor of Divinity degree, magna 
fuiii luude. 

Has Studied Abroad 

Following his sojourn at Union, 
Roberts attended the University 
of Edinburgh from 1934 to 1930, 
earning his Pli.D., and has att- 
ended summer sessions at the Im- 
perial University. Tokyo; Gottcn- 
gen University and Marburg Un- 
iversity, both m Germany: and 
Oxford University. 

Upon completing his formal 
education, Roberts was ordained 
to the Presbyterian ministry 
1937. and since has been in great 
demand as a college preacher. He 
joined the Union faculty in 1936 
as an instructor in religion, and 
has risen through the ranks to his 
present position. 

Active ill many theological and 
civic organizations, Roberts has 
written numerous articles pertain-

ment plan, the IIECUKU has polled 
several students in an attempt 
tu diseovt^r their sentiments to- 
ward the proposed aptitude tests. 
While the views expressed by 
those questioned cannot be con- 
sidered as representing the total 
student opinion, they are a cross- 
section of the campus attitude on 
the plan. 

Barry Broker '54, Phi Sig: "De- 
ferment resulting from the apti- 
tude tests, while not the best 
passible plan, is nevertheless a 
more democratic process than de- 
ferment according to class stand- 
ings. Since the object is to put 
into effect the most democratic 
)jlan and also to interrupt a boy's 
education as little as pos.sible. I 
believe that a form of U.M.T. fol- 
lowing graduation from High 
School is the best plan."

that the program proposed by 
Mr. Hershey's committee is undem- 
ocratic and will not be adopted in 
the compromise draft bill. 

It does appear, however, that 
even though the Hershey plan will 
not be compulsory, it will afford 
local draft boards an important 
yardstick in granting deferments.

A storm of controversy has

that only fourteen freshmen re-

members of the class of 1954 last

houses filled their quotas. 

Eleven of the fourteen men who 
did not receive bids have joined 
the Lord Jeff Club, while the other 
three elected to be unaffiliated. 
The present controversy centers 
around the fact that the eleven

retary for the American Friends 
Service Committee in New Eng- 
land, presented an opportunity for 
for Williams students to intern in 
the fields of industry, agriculture, 
labor unions, and mental hospitals 
during the summer vacation. 

Miss Fairfax discussed work pro- 
grams and seminars open to col- 
lege students this summer at the 
weekly meetings of the Student 
Committee of the Congregational 
Church Monday evening. 

Intern Programs 

The seminars will be held in 
several American cities for the 
purpose of discussing international 
problems. A limited number of 
American students will be able to 
participate in the seminars for a 
majority of the openings will be 
reserved for foreign students. 

The interns will live coopera- 
tively in houses, work during the 
day on their own fields, and at- 
tend seminars in tlie evening. 
Playgrounds and similar needy or- 
ganizations will be helped by these 
groups in their spare time. 

Rebuilding of Philadelphia Block 

The interns may also work with 
tenants on the rebuilding of a 
Philadelphia city block recently 
purchased by the American Friends 
Committee. The tenants' work will 
serve as down-payments on their 
property and the rent will be used 
to repay the Friends Committee. 
Eventually the buildings will be- 
come the property of the tenants.

quota prior to the regular fall 
adju.stment. Nevertheless, there is 
a growing feeling among the stu- 
dent body that the institution of 
total rushing is necessary now. 

In the past a problem has at 
times arisen, the Lord 
Jeff Club was too large socially, 
politically, and financially. A trend 
In the opposite direction is now 
feared, for at present over ninety 
per cent of the student body exists 
within the fraternity ,system. 

The Amherst Board of Trustees 
cancelled all plans for a summer 
.session Tuesday evening after a 
Student Council poll revealed that 
approximately 83'i of the soph- 
omores, juniors, and prospective 
freslimen would not attend the 
accelerated program. 

The Amherst Press Bureau stated 
that the large vote was cast 
against acceleration largely be- 
cause of the presidential direct- 
ive tor deferring present college 
students on the basis of class 
standings or selective service test 
results. Incoming freshmen were 
influenced by the assurance of 
Geneial Hershey that higii school 
and prep school students will be 
allowed at least one year of col- 
lege before getting drafted. 
Definite Answers Required 

Of the 750 men concerned with 
the third term at Amiierst, 650 
answered the poll. Of these a ratio 
of five to one came out for non- 
acceleration. The number of ap- 
proximately 125 students who ex- 
pressed a desire to attend was 
far below the 300 minimum set by 
the administration as the lowest 
possible operating enrollment. 

Students answering the poll were 
requested to make a definite an- 
swer of either yes or no in the 

Amherst first approved the ac- 
celerated program in January to 
enable students in college to get 
as much education as possible 
before being called. It also de- 
sired to help incominK freshmen 
complete at least one college year 
iaefore entering the armed forces. 

Relnhold Niebuhr, eminent theologian and Dean of Union 
Theological Seminary, discussed the "Crisis in Culture and Civil- 
ization" before a capacity audience in Jesup Hall Tuesday niglit. His 
solution to the current crisis in world culture is a retui'n to Christi- 
anity, which creates a trust relationship in liuman affairs. 

In the beginning of his talk. Niebuhr made a distinction between 
civilization and culture, defining civilization as "the body of culture" 
and culture as the spirit of that body. The distinctive mark of the 
current world crisis is that, although the political, economic, and 
social crisis in civilization is recognized, the moral and ethical break- 
down in culture is not. 

Niebuhr explains the crisis in civilization as the destruction of the 
social fabric of society by technological progress. It has been imposs- 
ible to establish harmony between man and his fellow man by using 
scientific technique. 

There is a tendency in the modern world to condemn social or 
political institutions as the bases of sin, but Niebuhr maintains that 

sin is essentially personal, and 
therefore scientific organization 
of social and economic institu- 
tions provides no solution. 

The first contests of the Eph 
spring sports schedule will get 
under way this afternoon when 
Quincy Bent of the Class of 1901 
throws in the first ball of the sea- 
son at the Williams baseball open- 
er against Mass. Slate on the 'Wes- 
ton Field diamond at 2:30 p.m. 
At the same time the varsity 
tennis team will take on the 
courtmen from R.P.I, on the Sage 
Hall courts, and the varsity track- 
men will meet the Middlebury 

Ex-Williams hurler Bent will be 
making a reappearance on the 
diamond of his alma mater after 
an absence of half a century when 
he tosses in the opening ball this 
afternoon. Playing in the days 
when Williams was molding na- 
tional championship teams. Bent 
was offered a contract from the 
Boston Red Sox for $5000 upon 
graduation. This figure would com- 
pare with a $25,000 salary by to- 
day's standards.

'Last Blaster' 
To Hit Nassau 

Princetons sophomore class, 
resigned to the inevitability of 
world conflict and apparently as- 
suming a hedonistic attitude to- 
ward the whole thing, has sched- 
uled a "Last Blast" for Saturday, 
May 5. Tlie party, restricted to 
Tiger sophs, will feature free beer, 
a barbecue, and garish orange, 
green and black T-shirts for stu- 
dents and dates. 

A vigorous advertising campaign 
is currently spearheaded by wierd- 
ly dressed young Princetonians 
ter" placards. It's all in fun, ac- 
cording to soph class president 
William Ruddick. 

The almost 100 per cent vote 
cast In favor of the "Blast" in a 
recent class poll, Ruddick stressed, 
proved the sophomores' spirit and 
solidarity, a welcome sign in these 
troubled times. Moreover, the sale 
of the "Last Blast" T-shirts, which 
come in four sizes — small, me 
dlum, large and "ye gods, they 
can't be that big " — has been ex- 
tremely encouraging. 

Brown to Try 
Honor System 

Bruin President Leaves 
Decision to Students 

America Hysterical 

The crisis in culture is con 
sidered by Niebuhr to be the dis- 
proving of established beliefs. Dur 
Ing the past century our frame of 
reference to life has been dissi 
pated. It is this cultural crisis 
which makes America so hysterical 
in the current world situation. 

For the past 150 years the 
meaning to human existence has 
been based on a belief in his- 
torical progress and the superiority 
of man's intellect. Niebuhr feels 
that this faith in progress is a 
dubious faith, without any basis 
in Christianity. 

Niebuhr's final conclusion is that 
scientific progress and techniques 
are incapable of solving the world's 
problems by them.selves. Chris- 
tianity and the trust relationship 
which it engenders in human re- 
lations provides ihe only cure for 
the crisis. 

Brown College has set its ad- 
mmistrative wheels in motion in 
an attempt to install the honor 
system for all examinations. Presi- 
dent Wriston of Brown strongly 
approves of this system, on the 
condition that such a program has 
the complete support of the stu- 
dent body. 

The Cammarian Club, Brown's 
equivalent of the V.C., announced 
on April 3 that it had voted to put 
the question to the students. A 
preliminary sui-vey reported that 
approximately 75 per cent of 
Cammarian Club members were 
in favor of an honor system. If 
the students decide in favor of the 
measure. It will be presented to 
the faculty for final ratification. 

Almost all members of Bix>wn's 
faculty are in accord with the 
theory that an honor system will 
greatly reduce the tendency to 
cheat. President Wriston also 
stated that the concept of "squeal- 
ing" represents a distorted view 
toward loyalty, and could be ex- 
tensively cleared up under an 
honor system.

Your Decision 

Whether or not Williams accelerates this suminer is 
beiiiK left squarel.v up to the students. Although the actual decision 
rests with the administration and the trustees, their action will be 
influenced to a large degree, if not entireLv, by the number of students 
electing to attend a summer session. Since the re.sults of the poll con- 
ducted through the Undergraduate Council will have such significance 
in determining the fate of the summer session, every student should 
make himself aware of the recent draft developments and of his own 
personal status. 

Certain fears have been expressed that some undergraduates 
might indicate a desire on the ballot to attend summer session with 
the mental reservation that they would renege if the situation became 
more favorable to them later on. Every effort must be made to see that 
the balloting represents the definite and tiTie intentions of all the 
students. The labor, expense, and inconvenience of planning a summer 
session cannot be undertaken if the session is to be later scuttled by 
people who were playing it safe and had no real intention of appearing 
at the summer term. There has been enough indecision and doubt 
concerning acceleration already. The vote to be taken Wedjiesday 
night must decide it one way or another tor all time. Every student 
is obligated to indicate his honest and accurate intention concerning 
the summer session. 

Letters to the Editor 

Chapel Problem Unsolved 

To the Editor ot the Williams RECORD: 

A year ago at this time the Williams campus was in the midst of 
tire controversy over compulsory chapel. Last September President 
Baxter announced that each student was to be allowed seven cuts 
a term and the opposition was quieted. I do not believe that this 
measure sufficiently resolved the problem; it only quieted the most 
noisy factor of the opposition, those who objected to returning to 
the campus on Sunday evening. I believe the time has now come for 
us to take a good look at the religious life as it exists on the Williams 
campus and endeavor to find a sound solution. 

In spite of the tact that the administration has given the stu- 
dent seven cuts a term there are still many students attending all 
types of religious services merely to obtain chapel credit. They con- 
tribute nothing to the religious services which they attend, rather they 
detract from them. They gain nothing from attendance from such 
services and often harm the leligious experience which others seek 
to attain at such services. Therefore, compulsory attendance at 
religious services is doing nothing to help either those who are earnest 
in their attendance or those who merely attend they are 
forced to. 

It is doubtful whether there are any students on the Williams 
campus who have found that they are completely settled in their 
religious beliefs, even those who completely deny the existence of 
any devine being. If the administration is really seeking to provide a 
religious outlet for the student it must take some step to accomplish 
that end. Compulsory chapel has done nothing but build up resent- 
ment against organized religion. The administration by granting an 
extra four cuts accomplished nothing except conceding that chapel 
Is an unpleasant experience, it should not be. 

Sterling Committee Action 

May Force Total Kushing 

To the Editor of the Wllliums Record: 

Total rushing miiy well become an actuality in the near future, 
and as the result of action taken by the Sterling Committee. This 
statement will probably cause raised eye-brows and incredulity on the 
part of many readers, but I believe it is justified in view of the recom- 
mendations made by the Sterling Committee to the Tiust«es. 

On Sunday, February U, total rushing per se was defeated by 
a 35-4 vote of tlie Sterling Committee. This fact was prominently 
published on the front page of the RECORD, and most people consid- 
ered that to be the end of the matter. 

There seems to be a campus-wide apathy toward the fact that 
at the same meeting it was recommended to the Trustees that com- 
munal freshman eating be instituted. Were permanent freshman 
eating put into effect, tlie consequence would be the forced acceptance 
of total rushing by the fratei'nities. 

I do not mean to imply that the Sterling Committee had any 
such ulterior motive in making the recommendation, for most 
probably the proposal for freshman eating was only motivated by a 
desire for greater class unity. Regardless of the intentions, the con- 
sequences most certainly will be that the college will find iUself 
railroad into accepting total rushing. 

The reasons for this are purely economical. If fraternities only 
feed three classes instead of four, and the Garfield Club remains the 
present size, then fraternity dining rooms will be catering to 75'X the 
present number. With the same overhead and constantly increasing 
costs of food, this would bring many houses to the verge of financial 
collapse, CBM or no CBM. 

Under such conditions, it would inevitably be necessary for 
the frateinities to accept total lushing in order to make ends meet. 
Tlius, in effect, the institution of freshman eating would present the 
fraternities with a fait accompli, whereby they would have no 
alternative but to accept a social setup which they rejected in the 
last Sterling Committee ballot 

Such a turn of events, it seems to me, would constitute a negation 
of democratic freedom of choice at Williams. The fi'aternities have 
clearly indicate,! that they do not want total rushing, and the 
Sterling Committee has recognized this decision and abided by it. 
But if total rushing were to slip in througli the back door due 
to the institution of freshman eating, all the democratic balloting 
conducted by the Sterling Committee would become a hollow mockery. 
Now is the time for the student body and the alumni to voice their 
opinions on this plan, not after they find to their sorrow that they 
have been presented with the accomplished fact.

Pythons and Pedal Pushers 

To the Editor of the Williams RECORD: 

The editor of the Wheaton News has asked us to write a column 
about spring weekends at the men's colleges ... We would like very 
much to include Williams in this article and would appreciate it if 
you would send us the available information on the weekend, date, 
events and their approximate time. etc. If you have some 
suggestions on what the girls should bring or better still what they 

shouldn't appear in we would welcome these comments 

Sincerely, Eleanor Blum and Ann Williams 

Dear Miss Blum and Miss Williams, 

The minimum dates of our spring houseparty are May 11-13, 
beginning with Friday afternoon cocktail parties and ending with 
the Sunday milk punch parties. Many men will start early. "Zanuck in 
the Streets." a takeoff on the movie industry, will he held Friday 
and Saturday nights. It is hoped that nothing else will occur In the 
streets or be taken off in the movies. 

Informal dances will also take place Friday and Saturday nights: 
clothes somewhere between fcrmals and pedal-pushers are recom- 
mended. Tennis, baseball, lacrosse, picnics, and other outdoor 
sports will go on during the daytime: clothes somewhere between 
batliing suits and pedal-pushers are recommended. 

As to what the girls shouldn't appear in, just about anything 
is all right except pedal pushers. Knickers, hip boots, sun gla.sses. 
and togas are also frowned upon. Don't bother to bring a sleeping 
bag or a raincoat, as your date will have a bed tor you and it never 
rains, but you might bring your own cocktail glass and a pet python 
to guard it. 

Sincerely. Pete Pickard 

Discussion Groups 

If one is to gain a religious experience perhaps the best way 
to do so is through the exchange of religious ideas among individuals 
in groups guided by a leader. Such things as the WCA embassies 
have been very successful on this campus in the past years. The 
application of the principles behind these embassies to weekly meet- 
ings lead by members of the religion department, other interested 
faculty members and local clergymen would go a long way toward 
helping many students solve their own problems and would provide 
a sufficient alternative to compulsory chapel. 

It seems to me that such a program would accomplish a number 
of things. It would fii'st of all draw students out ot religious services 
where they are contributing nothing. Furthermore, it would tend to 
raise interest in religious thinking on the campus which might lead 
many students into attending religious services of their own free will. 
Lastly, it would provide a means whereby students ot differing reli- 
gious points of view could express themselves giving others a more 
tolerant attitude of their position. 

If such a program were put into effect there would be no reason 
tor the administration to continue its present expedient policy of 
seven cuts. Religion is not an every-other week affair, nor even a 
week-to-week affair, but rather a continuous practice. If the student 
were offered three alternatives: attendance at a local church, atten- 
dance at chapel, or attendance at one of several mid-week discu.ssion 
groups there should be no valid rea.son for failing to attend weekly. 
If the administration is not willing to adopt some sort of progressive 
policy as regards religious activity then it seems to me there is no 
other choice than to give up chapel altogether.

j.nportanl topic of spoils conver- 
sition on tlie campus has been 
conceined with the rumor that 
next year, both lacrosse and hoc- 
key would be dropped from varsity 
competition here at Williams In 
order to reduce atliletlc costs. 
Here Is a little enllBhtening infor- 
mation concerning this rumor, and 
jfs strictly a rumor, readers! 

According to Athletic Director 
Frank Thorns, no such Idea has 
leceived any serious consideration 
by cither the Athletic Council or 
tiie Athletic Department. It is 
true that athletic costs must be 
cut next year, but Mr. Thorns 
sUiles that he has not even con- 
.sidered this cutting of and 
liockey as feasible methods. 

The next question seems to be 
"wliy must we cut athletic costs 
ai all? Didn't we just raise two 
million dollars, $80,000 of which 
was to be used for athletic ex- 
pi'iises?" True, the money wa.s 
raised with this intention in mind 

but when the construction on 
tlu' science labs, the new Student 
Union and Garfield Club combined 
u!.d the administration expenses 
\vere figured, they were way over 
their respective allotments and 
the cut came in the form of a 
big piece of the "athletic allot- 
ment pie". This Is perfectly undcr- 

But to get back to the hockey 
and lacro.sse picture-there has been 
a certain sum of the allotment

Although somewhat overshad- 
owed by their varsity counter- 
parts membeis of the of '54 
have been working arduously for 
the past few weeks in preparation 
for the opening of their respec- 
tive lacrosse, bafieball, tennis, golf 
and track seasons. 

First of the frosh teams to get 
into action is the Cub lacrosse 
team, which opens a four game 
schedule today as they tangle with 
the Union freshmen at Sclienec- 
lady. The yearlings new mentor, 
Ralpn Town.send, has had than 
two rfecks to drill his experleiice- 
t.ilii 25 man .squad and mold a 
starting line-up. The only man 
a.ssured of a permanent first-string 
berth is ace goalie Rod Starke, a?, 
all- New England prep school sel- 

for athletics especially earmarked 
for the construction of a hockey 
rink; but again Ihe sum is at the 
present lime far short of amount 

This is the picture at the present 
lime-lhe amount which the ath 
letic budget will have to be cut 
next year will depend wholly upon 
how bin an enrollment we have 
at Williams. A cut somewhere 
seems inevitable. However, I can 
a.ssurc you that the dropping of and hockey as a means 
has not even been considered. 

Nor should it even be considered 
I can mention far better and 
more coiidusive methods for cutl- 
I ing costs than the elimination of 
any particular sports. If need be, 
every sport in the college should 
have its separate budget cut, 
cither through cuts in equipment 
purchases or else through cuts in 
their schedules. There are many 
excess exi)enses which appear on 
the costs of a great many sports 
that I could mention here— this 
is the place to hit!!!Get rid of 
all the excess baggage before you 
abandon the .ship itself .. .man- 
power permitting, the elimination 
of hockey and lacrosse from var- 
sity competition SHOUUD NOT 


Otherwise, Townsend is non- 
committal as to his starting ten. 
He believes that Dave West, Peyt 
Plnkerton, Larry Donoho, Stu 
Chase, Don Bayer, Hugh Murphy, 
and Dave Whiteford have been 
particularly impressive in practice. 
Also gratifying, has been the swift 
improvement of a trio of prom- 
ising newcomers to the game, Tony 
Slolz, John Loomis, and Al Kiss- 

Baseball Squad Cut 
In baseball, Coach Al Shaw has 
pared his unwieldy fifty man squad 
down to a more workable thirty, 
in preparation for their opener 
at Hotchkiss on Wednesday. 

Although a tew players are still 
to be dropped, some of the pos- 
itions are set. In intra-squads 
games, Shaw's "first-string" in- 
field combination has been made 
up of Reed Poster, Dick Sullivan, 
Jack Hawkins, and Owen Maher. 
Jerry Schauffler, Chuck Brown, 
and Bob Sullivan have topped the 
out-fielders, and Walt Creer app- 
ears solidly set behind the plate. 
The big question mark has been 
the hurling staff. With his num- 
ber one prospect, Dewey Reynolds, 
ineligible, Shaws mound strength 
doesn't look as formidable as last 
year's undefeated Little Three 
Champs. Bob Cloulier, Rog Mood- 
y, Paul Murphy. Guy Vemey, and 
Ralph Smith all have a chance to 
win the scramble for the top piteh- 
iiiK slot before the season begins. 
Tennis, Gulf Bright 
Prospects for the yearling ten- 
nis squad of Coach Clarence Chaf- 
fee are also bright, as the cubs 
prepare to square off against 
Hotchkiss In the season's curtain- 
rai.ser Wednesday. Coach ChaJIee 
will probably take a six man tra- 
veling unit to Hotchkiss, Including 
lop-ranked Jolm Brownell, Jim 
Zlegler. Herb Elish, Bill St. Amant, 
Al Fulkerson, and Wy Sanders.

Track .Site Uncertain 

When the varsity track team 
toes the mark against MIddlebury 
today It will be attempting to 
maintain an undefeated streak 
standing at nine con.secutive meets, 
beginning with the second contest 
of the 1949 season and Including 
two Little Three championships 

Although the Panthers have lost 
their ace hurdler and high scorer 
of the 1950 season, Irv Meeker, 
they have some formidable talent 
in hurdlers Boss and Dailey and 
dashmen Ablondl and Sherboume. 
Although the Ephs are heavily 
favored to win. they are not con- 
sidered likely to approach the 
crushing 106 'A -28 Vj score of last 
year's encounter. 

MIddlebury's quarter-mile cin- 
der track on which the contest 
was scheduled to be held. Is in 
very poor condition, and at the 
time this writing goes to press It 
was still uncertain whether the 
meet would be conducted there or 
al Weston Field.

A cryptic "Walt and .see" was 
the only prognostication that 
Charles R. Keller, senior (Is there 
another?) fireballer for the Pa- 
cully Softball Club iPSC), would 
venture on his team's chances this 

Keller, who heads the Williams 
College History department dur- 
ing the off-sea.son, was naturally 
drafted to hurl for the PSC when 
that noted aggregation was reor- 
ganized last week after a year of 
inactivity. Reason for reorganiza- 
tion according to C. R.: "The fac- 
ulty has had enough of this ath- 
letic apathy." 

The Ageless Arm 
Playing-Manager Kermit Gor- 
don I lb I revealed that the club 
would probably go all the way with 
Keller and his ageless arm this 
season, but that there is hot com 
petition going on for most of the 
other positions. The Ageless Arm 
meanwhile announced from his 
office high atop Stetson Library 
that his arm was in the best shape 
ever, and that as usual he was 
looking forward to pitching all 
the games this year, his four- 
teenth with the club. 

The Arm, it will be remembered, 
at least by those with good mem- 
ories, hurled the opening game for 
the PSC when Delta Upsllon in- 
vited the faculty athletes to play 
on the DU lawn and then prompt- 
ly crushed their academic visi- 
tors. Prior to this. The Arm had 
played for the Faculty Hardball 
Club iPHCi on which he was 
known as Mr. FIrstbase. 

Playing-Buslness Manager Walt- 
er Wllmot ishortfielderi was not 
available at press time but his 
office announced that the PSC 
will probably play two games a 
week during the spring. 

Thus far. according to the Front 
Office, the Club has a 1-1 record. 
In the opener with the Phi Delts 
(who were assured it was only a 
practice affair i the faculty swept 
to a 9-7 victory, with Bobo Keller

The club roster reveals that the

see service during the season. Ir-

team with a potent bench. Rumors 
have also seeped out that the club

OCCR oGIllOrS of war need both colleges and 

students. As to the poorer boys 
who can't afford to go to college 
I don't think a two and a half 
year stint in the army will hurt 
them, but might even hici-ease 
their education and training. If 
the poor boy is supporting two or 
more dependents then he won't 
be drafted anyway, and no harm 
is done. I don't think that the 
situation today warrants the 
breaking up of many college stu 
dents' education, an education 
that after two and a half years 
might not be resumed." 

Soapy Symington '53, A.D.: "As 
far as I can see, the deferment 
plan is a good thing. The only 
thing that worries me is tliat the 
plan isn't going to get past Con- 
gress. Some people claim that it 
is unfair in giving a blanket 
deferment to college students but 
I don't think so, because there 
isn't anyone who if he really 
wants to, can't go to college." 
Andy Anderson '52 D. Phi: "Be- 
ing 1-A, I approve of the plan. My 
only complaint is that the test 
that they're going to give won't be 
hard enough to prove anything 
and so will defer a lot of people 
who don't deserve it. The smart 
people go to college, and they 
should stay there, so I think that] 
the President's order is good for 
the country." 

Dave Ellis '51 D.U.: "It's a good 
thing. They can fill the army with 
those high school graduates who 
don't go to college, and so there 
is no reason why college students 
shouldn't be allowed to finish their 
four yetrs. Also the plan is prac- 
tical, and would work. The armed 
forces need good officers, and col- 
lege graduates, being more intel- 
ligent, make the best officers, so 
I think that all undergraduates 
should be allowed to finish col- 
lege, not only for their sake, but 
for the good of the country." 

Gus Clary '51, Saint: "I think 
President Truman's deferment 
plan is wrong and undemocratic, 
because it creates an intellectual 
aristocracy, which is harmful for 
the country as a whole, and puts 
going to college on the wrong basis. 
It represents a lack of patriotism 
on the part of the undergraduates 
of the country. My general senti- 
ment is reflected in a recent car- 
toon from the New York Times 
which had a statue of Joe College 
with the inscription 'Joe College 
- Far above the sordid and crass 
defense of country' ".

, ssion at Williams. The UECUKU 

printine this summary of the 
! ids concerninK tile new Draft 
, >l T bill, to aid students in de- 
. iiling whether tliey will attend 
I summer session. 

rhe piesenl draft, law, wliicli 
111 expire on July 9, requires a 
imlmum draft uuv of 19 years, 
Hid a period of acUve service of 
\venty one months. Separate draft 
ijills have been passed in the 
ieiiate and House, and this week 
I joint commillee from both 
Mouses Is workinii to settle upon

Tlie main issue for debate is 
ill the provisions tor Universal 
\Iilitaiy Tialnlni,' for all young 
men at some future dale. While 
I he Senate bill slates that UMT 
ftuuld BO automatically into ef- 
ucl on order of the President, the bill stipulates that the .sys- 
tem would only yo Inlo effect 
after a majority vote of Conuress 
had accepted it. thus making an- 
other act of necessary. 

In general, little trouble is ex- 
pected In Ironing out other diff- 
erences in tlie Senate and House 
propo.sals. The Senate bill states 
u minimum age of 18 for draft, 
with a period of twenty-four 
months active service and mcmber- 
sliip in a National Guard or Re-

eight years In service, while the 
House calls for 18 "2 year olds tor 
twenty-six months active .service 
and almost four years more in the 

Deferment Tests 

One of the glaring differences 
which must be compromised Is on 
the deferment issue. The Senate, 
which pa.ssed its bill on March 8, 
iK'fore the executive order con- 
cerning deferment was revealed 
calls for deferment of 75,000 coll- 
ege students by the President each 
year so that they may continue 
their studies in .scientific, medical 
or technical fields. The House 
measure's deferment stipulation, 
liowever, refers directly to the 
President's order, and would give 
I lie local draft boards the oppor- 
tunity to ignore, if they wLsh, the 
results of the aptitude tests.

In its review of the concert, the 
"Herald-Tribune" .said. "The pro- 
gram, with variety of mood and 
style, was one of notable musical 
value and both clubs, as separate 
units and as a combined chorus,

and the dynamic shading which 
also cliaracterized the singing 
spoke well for the ability of Miss 
Hlatt and Mr. Barrow as choral 
trainers and conductors. The inter- 
pretations were responsive. . . .Tlie 
Williams club was particularly 
convincing in its understanding of 
the savor of Mr. Moore's 'Simon

David L. Gass has resigned as 
iisslslant professor of economics 
at Williams College and has ac- 
cepted a post with an automotive 
parts firm in Chicago. He has 
been on leave from the college 
since last September in order to 
pursue research in his field. 

A graduate of Reed College m 
Oregon in 1940. Professor Gass 
joined the Williams faculty as an 
economics lecturer in the tall of 
1948 and was promoted to an 
assistant professor of economics 
in January, 1947. Prior to his 
coming to Williams, he had been 
a senior economist for the State 
Department's research division. 

OSS Work 

After his graduation from college 
Gass acted as a research aide for 
the National Resuorces Planning 
board. He was an economics lec- 
turer at Leland Stanford Univer- 
sity from September, 1941, to July 

1942, and an associate economist 
in the research and analysis 
brancli of the Office of Special 
Services in Wa.shington from Sep- 
tember. 1942. to June of the fol- 
lowing year. 

He entered the army in June, 

1943, and served until December. 
1945. as an enlisted man and 
officer assigned to the OSS. Active 
in tiic United House of Israel in 
North Adams, Prof. Gass had 
also been secretary of the United 
Jewish Appeal campaign in that 

Professor Gass gained wide-

Princeton Proposes Student 
Waiters for Scholarship Aid 

Princeton University may adopt a student waiter plan next year 
in order to retain Its "unlimited" scholarship quota system. The 
new plan. It approved by the campus eating clubs, will help to allev- 
iate an expected $145,000 deficit in the running of the scholarship 

Under the new plan university authorities will continue to ad- 
mit new freshmen regardless of financial status. Princeton stands 
as one of the few colleges or universities in the country that .sets no 
quota on .scholarship aid men. 

Mixed Student Opinion 
Undergraduate opinion was 
mixed on the proposed plan. Some 
feai-ed a drop in the present "Lux-

the mob could be quelled.

Delta Phi Leaves Estate in ('ounlrv. 
Moves to Traey House on South St. 


In a mass operation lasting two 
days. Delta Phi moved this week 
from its country house overlooking 
the golf to a South Street 
town house from Delta 
Upsllon. Although rumors have 
circulated for some time, the news 
was not officially released by 
Alumni President Joseph White- 
head until alumni representatives 
assumed title to the new house 

Formerly known as the Tracy 
estate, the Tudor-style home with 
its poplar-lined driveway is lo- 
cated on an eight-acre piece of 
ground extending from South 
Street to Hoxsey Street. The house 
itself is brick with a slate roof. 

Prom the ornate center hall 
opens a sunken living room with 
fireplace, a library, and dining 
room. The first floor also includes 
a butler's pantry and waiters' 
dining room. French doors in the 
living room open onto a porch

Last Friday night WMS started 
the new "Blind Date" show, styled 
after the New York production on 
TV. Joe Callahan, Paul Cramer, 
and Granger Ottley were the three 
\'ictorious contestants who went 
with the three beautiful Benning- 
ton girls out to the Taconic Park 

Each of the six contestants, rep- 
resenting six .social units, had 
precisely two minutes and a half 
in which he tried to talk a girl 
into going out with him that 
evening instead of with his oppo- 
nent. The girls had a difficult time 
deciding whicli boy to choose be- 
cause they could not see the boys, 
and the studio audience was root- 
ing in behalf of each contestant. 

So that the boys and girls had 
no idea of the identity of the 
person on the other side of the 
partition which divided the lovely 
ladles from the eager Williams 
men. the names John and Mary 
were used. When the winners met 
their dates they were introduced 
to Mary Lynn Hart, Casey Keynes, 
a. id Lorraine Lubert. 

Two more "Blind Date" shows 
are .scieduled for the near future. 
iiie next six social units alpha- 
octically will be represented on

Cluh Sentiment 
Not Expressed 

UC Sets Rushing 
Quota for Spring 

The propo.sed CBM warehouse 
plan was given a sound vote of con- 
fidence when all fifteen fraterni- 
ties voted to support the measure 
in Monday night's Undergraduate 
Council meeting. The Garfield 
Club abstained from the voting be- 
cause it had not held its own dis- 
cussion before the Monday evening 

A number of houses showed that 
their members had voted unan- 
imously for the proposed food sto- 
rage plant while a few voiced their 
favorable sentiment only on the 
condition that prompt action be 
taken by Campus Business Man- 
agement and the administration 
toward setting up plans for the 

After the announcement of the 
result of the UC vote, CBM di- 
rector Prank Thoms '30 stated that 
the administration would now go 
ahead making tentative plans to 
present for discussion at the Board 
of Trustees meeting on May 5th. 
After that the matter would re- 
main up to the trustees to decide 
if the project was worthy of a 
college loan. 

Rushine Quotas 

Chairman of the UC rushing 
committee, miiot Curtis 52, re- 
leased rushing quotas for the post- 
season rushing now in progress. 
By dividing the present college en- 
rollment into fifteen parts each 
house may now raise its member- 
ship to 53 men. Houses with more 
than that figure already in the 
house can only give out bids by 
making appeals at next Monday's 
UC meeting. 

Under tlie new quota each house 
can have 15 members from each of 
the lower classes and 23 members 
from the upper two classes. Houses 
with over 53 men in all are not al- 
lowed to rush at all except on the 
ba.sis of appeals.

Fraternity Eating Found Fast 
Declininor in Eastern Colleges 

by Ted Terry 

Although the time honored tradition of the knife and fork still 
receives at least lip service when modern collegians sit down to dinner, 
many institutions bear no resemblance to Williams in their dining 
systems. While at most of them the student does not eat well, his 
food expenses are appreciably lower. 

Amherst, a pioneer In modern dining, sacrifices gentility tor 
economy in Its table habits. Valentine Hall, a dietician's dream in 
chrome, was built in 1940, and now accommodates the entire student 

Mount Holyoke offers the feminine variation of central dining. 
The students eat all three meals in dormitory dining rooms, but a 

I central commissary prepares the 
food, and transports it by truck. 
Dieticians in the resident halls 
determine the quantity of food to 
be ordered, but may vary the menu 
as to salads and vegetables. Un- 
like many women's institutions, 
waiting is a remunerative job, and 
is done by the same girls all year 

Gilded Meals For Tigers 
At Tigertown eating is a rich 
man's hobby, as food bills even 
top the rates for local country 
.squires. The seventeen clubs for 
upper clas.smen average $18.50 a 
week for commis.sary charges, 
while JYe.shmen and Sophomores

Forget Details 

All the fi-aternltics have voted in favor of the CBM warehouse 
plan. Whether or not the Garfield Club supports the plan, it is clear 
that a definite majority of students favor the plan. 

The RECORD sincerely hopes that the Club will approve the plan 
as it stands without any crippling reservations or limitations. There 
are many unanswered problems to be solved in connection with this 
project and students may not be in the best position to propose 
specific answers to them ut this time. What is needed at once is 
a general approval of the principle of the warehouse operation by 
the Club so that the Trustees will have a unanimous exphession of 
approval by the student body on this crucial Issue. 

Campus Business ManaHement at Williams College is not just 
an oflice run by two managers, but an organization governed by a 
group composed of both undergraduate and graduate representatives 
of each social unit. This body together with the Managers, should 
be empowered to decide such important issues as the location of the 
warehouse, whether or not it should be a part of the new Student 
Union, and other problems. All social units should approve in prin- 
ciple the plan as it now stands and Instruct their representatives on 
the governing body of CBM to work for the adoption of any specific 
operational suggestions they may desire. Vhe governing body, for its 
part should work out the best possible arrangement for the college as 
a whole, and carefully weigh all suggestions it may receive. 

To date, no valid reasons have been put forth to show that the 
principle of warehouse operation by CBM will not work profitably 
here. In every college where it has been tried, it has met wiUi 
conspicuous success. Every man will benefit from its adoption here, 
because every man will save on his board bill regardless of what he 
is paying now. 

There is no question that legitimate differences of opinion exist 
concerning specific details of the food buying operation, but the 
machinery tor the settlement of these issues in the most efficient 
manner for the good of the entire college community exists in tlie 
governing body of CBM. If all the social units will endorse the 
principle now. the Trustees can act to appropriate funds. Differences 
of oppinion can be settled by CBM as a whole in June, and next fall, 
a lower board bill will be a reality at Williams. 

Letters to the Editor 


"See boys! No danger at all." 


by Tom Adkins 

When Mr. Cal King stated that he might have to replace his 
cinema with either a bowling alley or a garage i RECORD. Apr. 18 J, 
the response was enthusiastic. Of course there are alleys in Pitts- 
field. Nortli Adams, Albany. Northampton, and Bennington, but all 
are some distance from the local frat lodges. True, there is one es- 
tablishment in town, but this is often so crowded that eager bowlers 
are forced to sweep away the moUi balls and decaying pin boys before 

As for a new garage, why there are only fifty-three listed in 
the local phone book, so the vital need for one more is indisputable. 
It did occur to me. however, that even more desperately needed were 
emergency roof top landing field for stray helicopters and a bomb 
shelter to protect the local citizenry from the imminent atom attack 
on North Adams. 

Yet think of the fate worse than induction for students who 
would be forced either to find other amusements or go all the way 
to North Adams for the "Nearest flick." Cal, you just can't do this 
to us! 

Wed-Thurs: "The Mudlark." Not nearly as bad as the impression 
left by the nauseous preview. Even though slow moving, there is 
plenty of excellent material in it. Irene Dunne and Alec Guiness are 
outstanding In a fine cast. Do not go for action, but highly recom- 
mended for a calm intellectual evening. 

Fri-Sat: "Destination Moon." The first full length production 
about interplanetary travel. A modified form of Buck Rogers ad- 
venturism, in. however, a much moi'c palatable tone. Although ham 
is evident in spots, the film in the main does a good job of making 
credible a difficult subject. It will certainly not be like anything you 
have seen before. 

Sun-Mon: "Born Yesterday." It is impossible to say too many 
good things about this film. Certainly as funny as anything seen here 
in a long time. Judy Holliday and Broderick Crawford star, but all 
the cast is outstanding, most of them in fact, outshining Crawford. 
This is better than "Harvey", don't miss it.

A Reply to Mr. Keller's Protest 

I'o the Editor of tlie Williams RECORD: 

A week ago a caustic cartoon appealed In the New York Journal 
American, which was a direct, still jab against college students. Let 
me uescnbe it. Tnere were two young men pictured side by side. One 
was donned in the tamiuar khaki tan togs, helmet, and a rifle on his 
shoulaer. About ins neck, like a dog collar, was a sign with these 
words. •lOO DUMB 'fO KEEP OUT OV THK t'lOH'tlNG." The fel- 
low next lo him was obviously a college student, with the conven- 
tional bow-tie, Uashy sport's coat, books and sliderule in his hand, 
and a wrinkled, uuelleclual frown across nis countenance. He too liad 
a tag stating; •'lOO SMART TO FIGHT." 'Ihere have been many 
sucn cartoons displaying similar agitation. 

If there is anything that makes my blood boil it is the agitation 
against college students being deferred. How utterly absurd it is to 
portray the indigent, unfortunate kid from the slums or "wrong side 
of the tracks", as the symbol ol American democracy, while the 
snooty, ego-intlated college ■'bialn" becomes a villainous draft dod- 

Mr. Keller stated tin his letter to the editor of the "New York 
Times" reprinted in the April 18 issue of the RECORD-Ed.i that 
President Truman's draft-deferment plan for college students "will 
I'esult in discrimmation against poor boys ..." This is certainly true 
to a degree, but is seems to me that Mr. Keller has overlooked a most 
significant point. Namely, that most of these "poor boys" would be 
better off in some branch of the Armed Service. They are taken out 
of the smoky pool halls and disreputable "dives", and are placed on 
a team. They are given new clothes, instruction that often led to 
many civilian careers which they ordinarily would never have pro- 
cured without the training, and, by the way, they are given a .source 
of income. A number of these men remain in the Army, not Just for 
the duration of tne crisis, but they make it their lives because of the 
opportunities that probably would not have been theirs otherwise, 

"'Widoul a Dollar" 

I was down in New York City the other day taking my pre- 
induction physical. I noticed the kids around me. Most of them looked 
as 11 iiiey hadn't had a bath for weeks, and their clothes were dirty 
and raggeu. A feeling of pity inevitably crept over me. Yet, a majority 
of tnese boys were enlistees! They wanted to join the Armed Forces. 
You might say that they had nothing to live for back home, and an 
escape lay aliead in the service. 1 would replace tlie word "escape" 
with "a new life" — a life of opportunity and position. Of course I 
may be glorifying the Army or Navy life somewhat, but now I am con- 
vinced that I am right after I chanced to converse with one of the 
tatterdemalion's. He did not seem to think that he was a poor man i 
"fighting a poor man's war." On the contrary, he was glad that he was 
taken away from his shoe-shining vocation, and there was nothing 
undemocratic about his induction; as a matter of fact, he thought it 
to be extremely democratic! He said that he was happy to put in a 
few years, for after he was dischaiged he would attain the dream he 
had always aspired to. That was. to go to college. He smiled and 
.-jaid. "Aiid I'll be Belting uil that learain' widout paying a doilai. i'hat 
ole' G.I. Bill is something to look forward to." 

I am confident that there is not a guy in college who does not 
realize how fortunate he is to be able to attend an academic institu- 
tion. I A few are more aware of this than others, i If he does not. then 
he should not be going! Why are we so lucky ^s to be able to get a col- 
lege education'? In most cases, it is not because our dad's sat back 
on their "lards " as young men and inherited a fortune, but because 
tliey went out into the world with a set goal in mind, and by diligence 
and unfaltering ambition, they worked their way up through the 
discouraging and deflating depression, until they were in a position 
to send their children to college. This is the fulfillment of a dream 
— one of the highest and most cherished dream any parent can 
realize. Why shouldn't their sacrifices and struggling pay off some- 
where along the line'? 

Deferment ISot Exemption 

One might still assert that perhaps one kid's father was luckier, 
or got more breaks than another's, and this is more than likely to 
be the case. But who in Heaven's name can ever hope for, or want 
.society where every single individual went to college'? Wliile It is 
impossible and extremely idealistic to conceive a society where 100'< 
ot the young men receive college diplomas, nonetheless any Individual 
"poor kid" can attain that goal nowadays IF he is ambitious enough. 
State universities offer innumerable various and sundry scholar- 
ships to ANYONE — yet. how many take advantage of this'? Few!! 

So. Mr. Keller. I am afraid that I cannot concur wholly with 
your protest. There is not a college boy who Is not willing to take up 
arms for his beloved United States, but why not following the com- 
pletion of his education? After all. we are not engaged in a global 
war. as yet. Besides, the national defense would not be crippled by 
the mass deferment of all draft-eligible college students. Every 
•single year approximately one million men become of military age. 
About 40'; of the million go to college. Then too. if they decide to draft 
every able bodied 18 and 19-year old, college enrollments would be 
cut in HALF, which is quite a sUce. Schools would be forced to shut 
their doors, and in the long run this would lead to a serious depletion 
in the supply of trained leaders, who, let's face it, are going to be 
holding the reins in a few years. We are merely asking and praying 
tor a determent, not an exemption! Won't an individual be a more 
valuable contribution to the future American society alter he is fully 
equipped with the necessary tools ot Intellect and "know how", than if 
he is torn away from his studies and placed in a uniform now'?'?

Errors; Win Opener, 6 - 4; 
Purple Play at RPI Today 

by Dick Anloun 

'I'lie 1951 edition of the Williams 
College baseball team looked all 
the part of winners in the first 
inning of the sea-son's opener wllli 
the University of Ma.ssachu.setts, 
when they routed their right- 
handed pitching nemesis, Ed Fry- 
dyrk. But a superb Massachusetts 
iclief stint and a sloppy Purple 
defense tumbled Coach Bobby 
Coombs' nine to their first de- 
feat, 6-4. 

I'his afternoon the Eplimen play 
at RPI where they hope to pick 
up their initial victory against a 
team which has dropped consecu- 
tive games to Wagner, Stevens, 
and Springfield College. Coach 
Coombs will probably start right 
haiider Mike Puffer or portsider 
John Beard against an Engineer 
team starring pitcher-outfielder 
'I'ully Lovis. 

Five Kpii Errors 

In the Weston Field opener the 
Ephmen combed Frydyrk for three 
hits iiiKl a walk including a double 
by Pele Fisher to take a 3-0 lead 
before righthander Bob Kroeck 
came in to retire the side. The 
Redmen retaliated in the third 
inning, loading the bases on a 
pair of singles and a walk. On 
the next play Harry Slieehy. who 
had driven in two runs in the first 
inning, committed the first of 
five Williams errors as ho dropped

runs clattered the plate. 

Bob Wiley held his slender 3-2 
lead until the seventh inning when 
he was greeted with coiLsecutive 
singles by Don Smith and Bill 
Bakey, a former Drury High star. 
Coach Coombs called on Bobby 
Olson to replace Wiley who had 
turned in a creditable performance. 

Kroeck Stifles ruriilc 

Olson walked the first man to 
face him, loading the bases. With 
one out shortstop Akerson hit to 
Fen-i at third, setting up a possible 
twin-killing, but Ferri's wild throw 
to home iJlate enabled two runs 
to .score. The Redmen added an- 
other run on a fielder's choice and 
closed out their scoring in the 
ninth on a pair of hits. 

Entering the game with one out 
in the first inning. Kroeck pitched 
seven con.secutivc innings of shut- 
out ball including six stan- 
zas. He yeilded only one run and 
three hits during his mound stint 
and showed near-perfect control, 
walking only one man in a re- 
maikable performance. 

Fisher opened the ninth inning 
with a single. After he readied 
.second on a fielder's choice, Kul- 
sar doubled over the center- 
fielder's head to score him. When 
Kulsar rounded the bag attempting 
to stretch the hit into a triple, 
he was cut down as he slid into 
third, crushing the last hope of 
a rally for the disappointed Sat- 
\Mday home crowd.

Still minus the services of two 
first string players and one key 
substitute, the Williams lacrosse 
team opens its regular season to- 
day with a game at Union College. 
Both attackman Frenchy Oudin 
and defenseman John Schluter 
are expected to be out of action 
foi- about another week and will 
definitely miss the Yale game Sat- 
urday . 

With Oudin missing. Coach Har- 
vey Potter has been doing some 
experimenting willi the attackmen 
and lias come up with a first 
line of Capt. Gordie McWiUiams. 
Bruce VanDusen. and Dave Harr- 
ison. Also slated to see considerable 
action is the .second attack of 
Ted Mitchell, Eraser Moffat and 
Steve Whittier. 

Midfield Unchanged 

The midfield positions remain 
unchanged as John Nelson. Wyn 
Shudt and Ted Johnson continue 
to pace the competition. Bob Day. 
Jack French and either Gordie 
Clark. Hodge Markgrat or Neil 
Chase will make up the .second 
midfield line. 

On defense Walt Palmer has 
replaced the in.iured Schluter. 
while Pete Ingersoll and Pat 
I'Hommedieu still hold the other 
PD.sitions. Frank Weeks will start 
in the goal. 

Although there is no certainty 
that the team will get by Union. 
Yale on Saturday poses the 
graa.esl test of the team's strengtli.

while Cornell lost to Army by

The varsity track team made it 
eleven straight Saturday after- 
noon as they romped to a 96 '/2- 
38 Vz victory over Middlebury Col- 
lege on the soggy Porter Field 
track. Taking eleven out of fif- 
teen first places and twelve second 
places. Tony Plansky's speedsters 
almost matched their spectacular 
106V2-28'/2 runaway of last year. 

Middlebury drew first blood as 
their hammer-thrower, Faber, took 
first in the event, ahead of visitors 
Chuck Salmon and Carl Austrian: 
their ace sprinter. West, was vic- 
torious in both the century and the 
furlong, while Daily edged out

The college offers the student 
two meal contracts, one for a full 
week and another for a six day 
week. The full fare is $215 a term, 
or about $13.50 a week, while the 
partial charge is approximately 
$12.50 a week. 

Numerous Culinary Variations 

Dining systems vary radically 
throughout the east, although fra- 
ternity eating is fast declining. 
At Harvard and Yale meals are 
served in the dining halls of resi 
dent colleges. Hobart College, in 
Geneva, N.Y., has retained frater- 
nity dining, but somehow at the 
attractive charge of $12.00 a week. 

At Dartmouth most students 
make individual contracts with 
local restauranteurs and eat their 
meals in Hanover. Dining at Wes- 
leyan still centers around the 
fraternity system, although with 
a modification of the Williams 
arrangement. Eating privileges are 
often extended to non-affiliates 
by the individual fraternities, since 
the college offers no central din-

Yale Extends Weekend Hours 
For Receiving Women Guests 

After several months of debate and faculty consideration, Yale 
upperclassmen have finally been granted the privilege of entertaining 
young ladies in their rooms until 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday 
nights. Previously the women guests of Yale undergraduates had 
been required to sign out by 8 p.m. The new extension is the answer 
of the Council of College Masters to several student requests and 

The new privilege is an oulgrowtii of a resolution pa.ssed by 
the Council of Saybrook College, Yale University, last tall, which 
called for an extension of hours to 9 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. 
Action was further prompted by a student report on tiie matter which 
stated that "... for the average student there exists at Yale no satis- 
factory means to entertain women guests informally in tlie evening." 

Undergraduates Mature Enougti 

In granting the extension, the 
Yale Council of Masters stipulated 
that tlie new plan was on trial

Perhaps the most significant

Terry Energetic Forward 

The other forward position Is 
held by "Ten-foot Terry". This

All college students eligible 
for the draft "must take the 
aptitude test" regardless of 
their .scholastic records, ac- 
cording to a recent announce- 
ment by Brigadier General Louis 
H. Renfrow. deputy director of

When the Senate and House 
agree on a new draft bill it is 
quite possible that both college 
and aptitude grades will be re-

deferments. In this case draft 
boards may order induction of 
students who have no! taken

Summer Jobs 

Williams students voted over- 
whelmingly against a summer ses- 
sion Wednesday, 600 negative votes 
being cast against only 96 affirm- 
atives. Incoming freshmen of the 
class of 1955 went along with the 
present undergraduates. Partial 
returns from more than 300 pro- 
.spective freshmen indicate that 
172 want to start college in Sep- 
tember, while only 48 would like 
to arrive in June. 

The total of 144 students who 
expressed a desire to attend was 
less than falf the 350 mimimum set 
by the administration as the low- 
est possible operating enrollment. 
Although the faculty must official- 
ly approve the abandonment of 
acceleration on Monday, it appears 
inevitable that tlie plan will be 

Amherst Reaction Similar 

Two weeks ago the Amherst stu- 
dent body and Board of Trustees 
followed a similar course of action, 
cancelling all plans for a summer 
se.ssion. At Williams and Amherst 
the student opinion was almost 
identical, approximately 84!i of the 
votes being against acceleration 
in both instances. 

In general the undergraduates 
seem to be inclined to place their 
educational future in the hands of 
local draft boards, which have the 
option of deferring those studenis 
wlio have a liigh class standing 
or do well on the selective service 

The sixteen social units unan- 
imously opposed a summer ses- 
sion, the breakdown of indivi 
dual votes being as follows:

Beginning a Spring schedule of

skippers Bob Kimberly '52 and 
Gus Clarey '51 and crews Phil

'52 encountered difficulty in the 
first few races of the New Lon- 
don Hexagonal. After gaining ex-

Dead and Buried 

The brown manllla envelopes had begun to trickle into Dean 
Robert R. R. Brooks' office by Wednesday afternoon - Theta Delta 
Chi, 37-2 amiinst acceleration, Delta Upsilon, 33-4 against acceler- 
ation .... The final vote was announced Thursday afternoon : only 
144 men wanted to attend a summer session, including incoming 
freshmen. It was quite evident, although the administration had 
not officially buried it, that the Williams summer term was dead. 
Pres. James P. Baxter III had stated that the college could not 
operate financially with an enrollment of less than 350. 

This was not a policy defeat for the men who had planned the 
accelerated prourram, but merely the negation of months of work 
The summer session was proposed as a means to help students stay 
clear of the draft, and was a praiseworthy move in this direction at 
the time of its conception. When the national picture altered so 
that students no longer appeared to need such help, it was time to 
drop acceleration. 

We still have no "anchor in a sea of uncertainty," but at least 
the waves have calmed a little. There is an excellent chance that 
most of us will be back here next fall under the new Hershey defer- 
ment program. And when we do come back, it will be to a normal 
college life, with a full teaching staff, full program of courses, and 
full opportunity to complete our education as we began it.

A New Garfield Club? 

Next week the Sterling Committee convenes again for what may 
be its final meeting. Nevertlieless, the really Important decisions were 
handed down by that committee last February when total rushing was 
set aside. Although various other proposals were adopted at the time, 
total rushing was the heart of the plan to revltallne our .social system, 
and when it fell, all the others were affected. 

Since the Sterling Committee tabled total rushing, a lot of water 
has gone over the dam. At Princeton total rushing was adopted vol- 
untarily by the clubs this year and seems on Its way to becoming per- 
manent institution. At Amherst the fraternities filled their quotas 
durhig the rushing period and probably would have achieved lOO'X 
pledging if the quotas had allowed. Although not enough time has 
elapsed to Judge these events, they show that the Institution of total 
rushing or at least some basic change is not impracticable. 

Perpetuate an Evil 

With total rushing abandoned, the question arises whether to 
seek a middle position which will work toward complete rushing or 
return to the status quo. Around the answer to this problem hinges 
the fate as to whether the Garfield Club should retain its pre-sent 
place in the social system or whether a determined effort should be 
made to strengthen the Club. At the bottom of both these dilemmas 
lies the question of whether or not an attempt to strengthen the Club 
will serve to perpetuate what a majority of the people consider an evil. 

The answer of the Sterling Committee seems clear enough. At the 
last meeting that committee recommended that a new Garfield Club 
building be constructed. Thus, on the surface it seems to think that 
the best move is to try to strengtlien the Club, Whether or not even a 
splendid new building would solve the basic problem of the Club is 
highly questionable. 

Ask The Club 

Since the Garfield Club is most concerned with any proposals 
about a new Club, it would seem fitting that a large part of the 
decision should rest with their desire. In the long run they sliould be 
best able to tell the advantages and disadvantages inherent in the 
erection of a new Garfield Club. 

Examine for a minute, however, the practical affects of con- 
structing a new Club. If a new Club is built, the chances for getting 
a suitable Student Union in the forseeable future are slim. With the 
present quotas and with segregated freshman dining, the fraternities 
would be sorely put to maintain their present arrangements. In this 
case total rushing might very well become a must, and the college 
would find itself with a new Garfield Club on its hands. 

The entire problem needs to be re-evaluated, Williams must look 
at the situation in terms of the times. Everyone must become aware of 
the problem. As soon as it is grasped, the solution is apparent. As the 
recommendations now stand, a new Club will be built. Yet there Is 
considerable opposition to the plan. There is still time to change our 
minds and while there is a basis for reconsideration, we should not 
close out minds to it.

Coach Tony Plansky's varsity 
cindeimen sloshed their way to an 
overwhelming victory over the Un- 
iversity of Massachusetts on rain- 
soaked Weston Field Wednesday 
afternoon. The contest was never 
in doubt, as the Ephs won all but 
two events to accumulate a score 
of 104 Vi points compared to 29 Vi 
for the Redmen. 

High point of the meet was Jim 
Haskell's fla.shing 4:36.8 clocking 
in the mile; this time was especial- 
ly creditable considering the con- 
dition of the track, which was al- 
most a continuous pool of water,

In a game that was close all the 
way ti-om the start to the end of 
the overtime period, the Williams 
varsity lacrosse team edged out 
Union College, 12-11 Wednesday at 
Schenectady in the openng game 
of the season. 

Trailing 3-0 after only seven 
minutes of play, Williams came 
back witli an attack that netted 
thiee goals in four minutes, Bruce 
Van Dusen, Ted Johnson and Dave 
Harrison all contributed to this 
scoring outbur,st. 

Union Aggressive 

Union continued the aggressive 
play which they had shown in the 
first quarter, and the Ephmen still 
weie having their troubles in pick- 
ing up ground balls as the .second 
period got under way. The Gar- 
nets .scored first again but Wil- 
liams poured in three more goals 
in less than two minutes. 

Harrison. Capt. Gordie McWil- 
liams and Jack French shared the 
scoring honors in this quarter, as 
the Purple led for the first time. 
Union, however, tied the score by 
the half on a pair of goals by Herb 
Hufnagel. the high scorer on last 
year's Union team, improved his 
scoring average by tallying eight 

Ephs Trail 

Two counters by John Nelson 
and one by Mc Williams kept Wil- 
liams in a lo.sing battle with Huf- 
nagel during the third period as 
tire Garnet star fired in four goals 
to give his team a 10-9 lead. 

Finally in the fourth period the 
Ephs began to really outplay their 
opponents, keeping the ball in the 
attcak zone most of the time. This 
didn't pay off until less than five 
minutes remained when McWil- 
liams slipped in the equalizer af- 
ter circling the cage. 

Nelson and Fraser Moflat each 
scored an overtime goal to give 
Williams the victory. Hufnagel 
scored Unions eleventh with only 
eighteen seconds remaining m the 
game. The Williams lineup: at- 
tack - McWilliams. Harrison. Van 
Dusen ; midfleld - Nelson. T. John- 
.son, Shudl; defense - Hastings, 
I'Hommedieu, Palmer; goal -

Coach Harvey Potter's team will 

by Dick Porter 

I Despite the masterful pitching 
by Mike Puffer, the errorless de- 
fense, and the strategy of Coach 
Coombs, the Williams nine diopped 
its second game, 2-0, to Bowdoin 
after- 13 innings of play Thursday 
on Weston Field. 

Stranding men on the basepaths 
in all but three frames, the Eph- 
men wasted a superlative perfor- 
mance by Puffer who went all the 
way to lose a heartbreaker on 
a triple by Art Bishop. Bishop, who 
almost beat Williams last fall in 
football by gaining nearly 200 
yards, is fast becoming a Purple 

Single, Triple Win Game 

Puffer scattered eight Polar 
Bear blows oevr the first twelve 
innings, allowing only one man 
to reach third up to the unlucky 
thirteenth. Then after one out, 
Walt Bartlett singled and Bishop 
blasted a long three-bagger into 
left center. A second-out fly 
brought him home with the in- 
surance run. 

John Hebert and Andy Lano 
combined to hurl the ten-hit shut- 
out against Williams, but both 
were forced to pitch themselves out 
of some tight spots to do it. They 
had the Ephmen hitting into the 
air, with only eight ground balls 
being handled by the Polar Bear 

Puffer Good in Clutch 

Five Ephs readied second base 
and two third, but most of the 
threats came with two out. Wil- 
liams had its best scoring chance 
in the eighth when Harry Sheehy 
singled with one out. Tom Dorsey 
ran for him and beat the throw to 
second on Pete Fisher's grounder. 
Just when Coomb's strategy was 
seeming to pay oft. however, a 
ground-out and a whiff ended the 

Puffer's clutch pitching really 
showed itself In the eighth when 
Bartlett tripled with one away. 
He got Bishop on a hopper to 
Pete DeLisser. who held the rtm- 
ner nicely, and handled a flnal-out 
grounder himself.

loss, Williams had several bright 
spots in its lineup, most of them 
in the field events, wliere they

The individual star of the day 
was versatile George Kelsey, who 
won two events, and tied for first 
in two otliers. Kelsey took the 120 
yard high hurdles in 17.6, and tlien 
went on to win the javelin and tie 
with Bob Schultz and Ken Perry in

Faculty Approves Proposal 
To Drop Summer Session; 
College to Open Sept, 24 

Ml plans for a summer session 
1. ivf been officially cancelled. This 
WIS revealed in a list of decisions 
11! rived at by the admlnislralion faculty at a meeting late Mon- 
i; ,y afternoon and released by 
I r, iin Brooks. 

Ilie approval of this proposal by 
I • faculty was a virtual certainty 
i: light of the overwhelminu vote 
1 iilnst the adoption of a sumniiT 

.sion by the student body 
1 , last week's poll. It parallels a 
: Hilar action taken by the Am- 
I rst Board of Trustees some thrii' 
\ I'ks ago which was largely the 
; ,ult of an equally one-sided .slu- 
, lit rejection. 

Classes Begin Sept. 24 

Student opinion at both .schools 
lis in fact, almost identical, ap- 
loximatcly 84V of the votes being 
ai; acceleration in each in- 
•.uincc. Next fall the college will 
I evert to the original calendar for 
ilie year of '51-'52. that which was 
ilrawn up before the consideration 
uf a summer term. Cla.sses will 
:,lart on the 24th of September. 

For this year, at least, the daily 
program of three two hour exams 
uill be retained, i According to 
Dcun Brooks, it was likely that 
I he shorter tests would have been 
adopted eventually without the 
lidded stimulus of acceleration.) 
However, two changes in the exam 
Mliedule were agreed upon. The 
May 26th and all sub.sequenl finals 
will be po.stponed one day to permit 
.students to lake the Selective Ser 
vice tests on that date. 

Since the last final exam wi 
llien fall on Monday, June 4th, 
'.lie ccmprehen.'iivcG will '.c moved 
foreward two days, until June Bth, 
III order to retain an open date for 
lust-minute pi-eparalion. All com-

Under the direction of head 
swimming coach Robert Muir, the 
college's flfteenth annual 
in life saving has begun in the La-

marily for those interested in ob- 
taining summer jobs as water front 
dii-ectors at beaches and camps 
W'here po.ssession of a Life Saving 
Certilicate is usually a necessity. 

Instruction is given by Coach 
Muir leading to both the Senior 
and Instructor ratings. A Senior 
Life Saving Certificate is a prere- 
quisite to the Instructors Certifi- 
cate and the College has ruled that 
a man must have held his Senior 
license for at least a year before 
he is eligible to take the tests to 
become a qualified instructor. 

The life saving course is open 
only to students. Classes are held 
on Monday. Wednesday, and Pri 
day afternoons from 4-5:30. 

For those unable to attend the 
afternoon cla.sses, there is a sim 
ilar course taught by the Red 
on Thursday evenings. This class 
is open to the public. 

Although cla.sses began ',wo 
weeks ago. there is still time to 
enroll. All interested must sign 
up before the end of this week. 

WMS Broadcasts 
Octet Semi-Finals 

Di.sclosing a recent poll in which 
three fourths of the undergrad- 
uates favored non-compulsory cha- 
pel, "The Daily Princetonian" 
launched a drive last week to do 
away with required religious ex- 
ercises. The Princeton paper i.s 
continuing a drive begun in 1882 
with the abolishment of daily ves- 
pers for all students. 

Comic book and newspaper 
readers together with a sleeper ap- 
pear in a picture of the chapel 
balcony taken during a recent 
.service. It is felt tliat compuLsory 
chapel fails to give the students 
any real religious experience be- 
cause, as one student states, "When 
religion becomes compulsory, it 
fails to be a free expression to or 
communication with God." 
Iteligion a Personal .Matter 

The "Princetonian" concedes 
that instilling the "Princeton phil- 
osophy of life" requires religion 
just as much as divisional course 
requirements or physical education 
classes but doubts that required 
chapel is the most satisfactory 
way to acquire religion. 

The students appear to feel that 
chapel should present a personal 
religious experience and not be 
torceu. The Student Christian As- 
.sociation and personal contact with 
the students by the Dean and dea- 
cons of the chapel are thought 
to provide a better method for fur- 
thering religion on the campus 
than by compulsory chapel exer- 

ICet|uiri-u Chapel Inelievtive 

To the poll question, "Has re- 
quired chapel changed your m- 
terest in religion'.'" .seventy-thi-ee 
per cent of the students answered 
in the negative. Of the others more 
than one half think their interest 
has decreased! 

Religious attiliation appears to 
have had an Influence on the re- 
sults. One half of the Catholics 
favor required chapel, whereas 
three fourths of the Protestants 
are opposed.

'IVas, Special Dinners 

By Al Home 

Fraternity plans for Parents' 
Weekend, centered around tlie Sat-

.small turnout for the first of these 
annual affairs. 

A full slate of Friday afternoon 
.sports and the ball game at Wes-

program. It is expected, however, 
that college buildings, including

At 11 o'clock tonight, following 
the Interfraternity Sing. WMS will 
do a rebroadcast of the fifteen

liams and Smith glee clubs pre-

With a view towards broadening 
and diversifying the courses of- 
feied to the student body, the 
faculty approved curriculum 
changes in several departments at 
a meeting Monday. Departments 
affected are HLstory, Political Sci- 
ence, Mathematics, Chemistry, 
German and Astronomy. 

The History department has 
made the most sweeping changes of 
all. It has long been felt in this 
department that students with 
special aptitude should receive 
special instruction and that a 
wider field of courses should be 
offered to all students. 

Add Four Courses 

In order to add four new courses 
to the History curriculum, the de- 
partment has employed the idea 
of alternating courses, a plan al- 
ready used with a great deal of 
success in other colleges. This 
plan calls for the teaching of one 
set of courses one year and another 
set the following year. In the third 
year the courses used in the first 
year are taught again. 

Not all history courses have be 
come alternating ones, since only 
four new courses have been added. 
Two courses on the Renai.ssance 
and the Reformation, one on Amer 
lean Culture, and one on Modem 
Ru.ssian are the new additions. 
Honors Work Defined 

For the first time honors can 
didates can get an idea ahead of 
time what will be expected of 
them during junior year. The de- 
partment has compiled an outline 
of the work for candidates for the 
degree with honors In History and 

A motion to raise the fraternity 
quotas at Amlierst allowing com- 
p!. '^ n.cmber.ihip foi' freshnicn 
by June was passed by the under- 
graduate House Management Com- 
mittee last week and will be con- 
sidered by the graduate HMC 

Because the quota system limited 
each house to 18 men, 14 freshmen 
who had expressed a desire to join 
fratei'nities could not be taken. 
If the proposal now before the 
HMC were to go through these 
students could be taken this spring. 

HMC Unanimous 

Besides allowing each fraternity 
to take one more man. the under 
graduate HMC further recom- 
mended that "the quotas of those 
houses that do not pledge a man

Wes Game Leads 
Weekend Sports 

The parents who come to Wil- 
liams next weekend to be with 
their sons for two days will be 
helping to inaugurate a new Wil- 
liams tradition, Parents Weekend. 
May 5-6 has been so designated 
by the Undergraduate Council for 
the first time in the college's his- 

In the past some of the houses 
have held their own Parents Week- 
ends and have found them most 
successful. As a result, the UC de- 
cided last year to try to enlarge 
the weekend. The details are being 
left to the individual houses as 
far as rooms, meals and enter- 
tainment are concerned, but the 
occasion is camp:"-:-Vv'rie for the 
first time. 

Baxter Holds Tea 

Although most of the varsity 
sports are away that Saturday, the 
college will provide a baseball 
game with Wesleyan at 2:30. This 
contest will mark tlie first Eph 
defense of the Little Three title 
which tliey won last year. 

After the ball game. President 
and Mrs. Baxter will give a tea 
in order to meet the parents. All 
parents, students and faculty are 
invited to the tea. which will last 
from 4 to 5:30 in the Faculty Club. 

Many of the houses have planned 
father-son athletic contests in 
such sports as .Softball and golf. 

Trustees to Meet 

Both the Tru.stees and the Ster- 
ling Committee are meeting that 
weekend. Although neither group 
has releat^ed the topics which they 
will discuss at these sessions, the 
Board of Trustees will convene all, 
day Friday for committee dis- 
cussions and will hold a full board 
meetin::; Saturday morning at 9:30. 
For those tjarents who are arriv- 
ing Friday there will be three ath- 
letic events. The Fi-eshman golf 
and baseball teams both meet 
Nichols Junior College here at 4 
that afternoon. The still undefeat- 
ed Faculty Softball team will take 
on the Sigma Phis on the Field diamond at the same time. 

American History and Literature 

In an effort to aid more gifted 
students in tlieir work right from 
the beginning of their college life, 
the department has changed His- 
tory la-2a into a course with two 
hour and a half conferences per 
week. The la-2a course as pre- 
viously constituted will be taught 
us History 1-2. 

Pres. Baxter to Teach of note in the History de- 
partment's plans are the addition 
of a new instructor, Mr. Peter 
Fay, and the return to teaching of 
Pres. Baxter. Mr. Baxter will co- 
operate with Prof. Newhall on a 
course titled "European and Amer- 
ican Diplomatic History in the 
Twentieth Century". This course 
will be offered in 1952-53. but not 
next year. 

Pres. Baxter has not taught 
since his return after the War. but 
conducted a similar course for 
several years before it. Mr. Fay 
IS a 1947 graduate of Harvard and 
at present is in England as 
Rhodes scholar. 

Poll. Sri. Chanees 

The Political Science department 
lias also added two nev^' courses 
lo its curriculum and had made 
one important change in its se- 
quence courses. Poll. Sci. 5-6, a 
sequence course and thus required 
of all political science majors, has 
undergone a big change Whereas 
previously the entire year was 
devoted to constitutional develop 
ment. the new system calls for 
the .second half year to be spent 
on the study of political behavior.

Walsh Co-op Feud, Friendly 
But Stiff Entering 60th Year 

by Charles Fisher 

The House of Walsh and the Williams Co-op look forward to the 
uncertain future with the experience and insight of sixty years on 
the Spring Street business scene. Both establLshments, imder different 
names and in different locations, have been in friendly but stiff 
competition .since 1891. 

Tliat year Ed Barnard, North Adams haberdasher, opened a 
Williamstown branch of his store. The new business, the predecessor 
of the present Co-op was located between the gym and Rudnicks. 
For several years Barnard' handled only clothing accessories, leaving 

the bulk of the suit business to the 
wandering representatives of Bos- 
ton, New Haven, and New York 
tailors. However, with the turn of 
the century and the growing pop- 
ularity of "ready-to-wears". ads

of that day advising of "A good 
selection of suitings at from $15 to

In direct competition with Bar- 
nard from the beginning was the 
prosperous haberdashery of Wil- 
liams graduate Garibed Azhder- 
ian '91. Tlie young Armenian ex- 
change student, who had worked 
his way through college selling 
Persian rugs, attracted by the 
scenery and profit possibilities of 
Williamstown. bought out the 
small haberdashery of old-timer 
"Doc" Nelson and located it in 
the present quarters of the House 
of Walsh. 

After the turn of the century 
both stores soon changed owener-

over by Ernest Goodrich, a long 
time Soring Street merchant, and

Letters to the Editor 

Eye Opener 

To the Editor ot the Williams RECORD: 

As one of a sizeable gioup united in an effort to educate Mr. 
Richard Squires '53, I feel I must thank you for publishing his letter 
on American education in today's Record; it shows us so very clearly 
the nature and magnitude of our task. 

As an ex-tatterdemalion, I thank you again; I haven't had such 
an eye-opener since I first deserted the poolroom for the classroom. 

Yours truly, 
John Drew O'Neill 

No New Club 

Tliere is no place on the Williams campus for a new Garfield 
Club. This is not to say that there is no suitable geographical site 
for the new Club; it is a declaration that there is no proper system 
atic place tor an institution tliat a majority feels is profoundly 
detrimental to the social system here at Williams. Two votes taken 
among the undergraduate body with its strong fraternity sentiment 
demonstrated tliat a majority favored the abolition of the Garfield 
Club. Yet in its last meeting the Sterling Committee voted to erect 
a monument, in the way ot a new Garfield Club, to the perpetuation 
of that evil. 

If the Sterling Committee does not completely reject the idea 
of building a new Club, it should at least grant higher priorities to 
other proposals that have received greater support. Two of these 
are freshman dining and the Student Union. At the Sterling Com- 
mittee meeting only one vote was cast in opposition to segregated 
freshman dinmg; and in every discussion prior to the meetings of 
the Sterling Committee this proposal was among those most generally 
hailed as contributing to the betterment of the college. 

The only argument against the plan for freshman dining which 
carries any weight asserts that this plan will coerce the fraternities 
into total rushmg for economic reasons. Perhaps this is true. 
Nevertheless, should reasonable-thinking undergraduates, faculty mem- 
bers, and alumni discard a strongly-backed proposal for the purpose 
of permanently blocking another proposal which a majority ot the 
students and faculty advocate? This is asking too much. We like 
the fraternities, but even they must stand on their own feet, and 
they certainly cannot be used as the excuse for denying a definite 

Among the reasons for constructing a new Garfield Club would 
be to open up the Currier Hall facilities to the freshmen. There is 
a reverse side to this coin. Instead of building a new Club to make 
way for the freshmen, why not construct an entirely new dining 
hall for the freshmen'? One of the more recent proposals to come 
forth concerning this problem advocates the erection of a combined 
trosh dining hall-Student Union building in a central location. Al- 
though all the ramifications of this suggestion have not been in- 
vestigated, basically it appears sound and practical. Certainly, it is 
an idea that the Sterling Committee should look into. 

Some will argue that if total rushing is instituted after freshman 
dining commences in a new dining hall, the college will be left with 
the Currier Hall facilities on its hands. But, if total rushing is in- 
stituted after a new Club is built, you are left with the new Garfield 
Club in your lap, and not in a central location where it could be 
successfully converted into a Student Union. It has been shown that 
a new Club and dining facilities tor that Club cannot be practically 
constructed in a central location. It is equally obvious that a new 
freshman dining hall and Student Union building combined would be 
cheaper to build than a new Club. The more one looks at this proposal 
the more advantages one sees in it. It is also likely to be the one 
which is most generally approved. 

Textbook Excbange 

To the Editor of the Williams RECORD: 

The purpose of Campus Business Management is to lower the cost 
of a Williams Education. It is a well acknowledged fact that the 
College is pricing itself out of the market tor prospective students. 

Besides eating and sleeping all students have one thing in 
common; they use BOOKS. Therefore, we would like to propose that 
CBM, through its managers, undertake to operate a cooperative book 
exchange. This would be operated m exactly the same manner, but on 
a smaller scale, as the Harvard Cooperative Bookstore. Used books 
would be purchased at the end of each semester at a price large 
enough to cover operating expenses. New books would be ordered in 
such quantities as to reflect the remainder of the demand. The various 
departments would provide estimates of their anticipated book needs. 

With such a plan, a student could realize a saving both through 
a lower initial cost and a greatly increased resale price. In hundreds 
ot colleges and universities throughout the country where this system 
is in operation, savings in book expenses of 50';t are being realized. 

Now is the time tor Campus Business Management to take this 
constructive step to lower the cost of a Williams education. 

Sincerely yours, H. J. Finke '51 
A. H. Katcher 52 
Charles F. Terry '51 

Cbips on Windows 

To the Editor ot the Williams RECORD: 

One way that the college could save money is right in the Treas- 
urers Office. The idea ot sending out a $.15 or $.25 bill each time a 
student does some damage to his room is ridiculous. The bookkeeping 
it takes to do this is more expensive than the money gathered through 
these tines. Why not just add the fines to the yearly college bill"? 

Micheal L. Goldstein '53 




Of late we had noticed a great deal of activity around the Adams 
Memorial Theater. Being of an inquisitive nature, the other night we 
sent one of our men to a rehearsal of "Zanuck in the Streets," the 
student musical. He returned elated with the new show and pressed 
several pages of notes Into our hands: 

"Big sign on lobby door - 'Closed Rehearsal.' Went down stairs 
and snuck in through the orchestra pit. Came up face to face with 
Dave Bryant. Feigned nonchalance and scrambled into third row. All 
was confusion on the stage and Mr. Bryant was doing his best to 
straighten it out. Everybody yelling tor stage manager, stage manager 
yelling at everybody. George Kellog sitttog placidly at piano smiling 
at everybody. He hit the piano, contusion vanished, and stage burst 
into lively song. 

"Next skit - Marty Luthy in Churchill siren suit sings operatic 
aria. Strains of Paggliachi. . .Many pretty girls in cast. . Ordeman and 
Delisser Impersonate two Italian peasants. . .Brittingham impersonates 
Humphrey Bogart . . . Worried authors sitting in back of theater con- 
ferring continually and shaktag heads dubiously. . Tried to interview 
authors. Just continued to shake their heads and mutter, got to change 
this, it just won't go. 

"After each skit, an author-dlrector-actor argument. Much 
waving of amis but tempers always in control. ..Not many people 
know lines or cues, adding to confusion. . .Two dogs in show. Hannibal 
impersonates Lassie (not very well). Mole, the Brittinghams' dach- 
schund, appears as a dog named Skinner. . Songs by and large ex- 
cellent. . .Whole rehearsal might easily be a scene from a Hollywood 


by Ton; Adkins 
(Wed-Thu: "The Blue Angel.") Reportedly the first movie that Mar 
lene Dietrich ever made. From looking at the preview it seems incon 
ceivable that she was ever permitted to make another. Her figure shows 
a marked similarity to that of Josephine Hull in "Harvey," and her 
voice has that distinctive quality of so commonly used in "Tom and 
Jerry" cartoons to illustrate how a cat feels while he is being driven 
through fifteen concrete walls by a jet propelled cannon ball. Never 
theless, it is widely advertised as being "shockingly sexy" (The Daily 
ROTC Clarion) and "a most provacative and elavating film" (Dick 
Duffield in the Williams Long Playing Record.) With recommendations 
like these there must be something to it, and perhaps it is just my 
perverse aversion to pudgy women, scratchy soimd tracks and weird 
tribal music which makes me shudder and turn away. 

(Fri: "711 Ocean Drive.") Edmund O'Brien and a host of other un 
pleasant people do a thorough and dramatic job ot exposing the 
"crime syndicate" which is undermining the moral fibre of the entire 
nation. Some of the local Cleveland men will no doubt recognize the 
headquarters of the syndicate as the office of a prominent Cleveland 
executive. I have this on the word of Sam Hughes '54, who, with the 
possible exception of Muldoon, has more underworld connections than 
any man in college. Even aside from the useful purpose of proving 
that Cleveland is the crime center of the country, the picture is ex- 
cellent. It has suspense, action, acting, good direction, and an idea. 

(Sat: "Union Station.") An exciting picture ot mtrigue in a railroad 
station. John Holden and Barry Fitzgerald. (Co-feature "Sugarfoot.") 
Randolph Scott as a gentlemen. The end is unbelievably hammy, the 
rest is quite palatable. 

(Sun-Mon: "Lullaby of Broadway.") The "Old soldiers never die 
routine can't hold a candle to the sentimentality dished out in this 
trite movie. Doris Day radiates "personality" as always, but she is lost 
in as ridiculous and soapy a situation as it is possible to imagine. Some 
of the songs are good, and the dances are a relief between lengthly 
sessions of mournful yowls ot the type so popular among the frustrated 
moose of northern Canada. The cast includes such old standbys as 
Gladys George, S.Z. Sakall, and Billy De Wolfe, none of whom seem 
overly inspired by the bilge they are forced to spew forth. For the 
most devoted Day fans only.

The Purple linksmen celebrated 
the opening of the 1951 golf sea- 
son with two fine showings over 
the weekend as they clubbed Bow- 
doin, 9-0 Friday, and turned back 
a favored Holy Cross team by a 
5)l-31i score on Saturday. 

Playing under ideal conditions 
on the Taconic Course, the Eph- 
men experienced little difficulty 
in selling down the Polar Bears. 
In the most decisive victory of the 
day. Bill Rodie finished his match 
on the eleventh green with an 8 
and 7 triumph. Easy wins were al- 
so recorded by Frank MacManus, 
Berry Smith and Don Rand, who 
defeated their opponents by the 
scores of 6 and 4, 5 and 4, and 5 
and 4 respectively. 

Kand's Win Decisive 

The final matches were closer, 
but Ted Taylor finished with a 2 
and win and Jim Tompkins with 
a 1-up victory. The best ball point 
in each of the three foursomes 
was taken by Williams bringing the 
final score to 9-0. 

Saturday's match with the Cru- 
saders, played under threatening 
weather conditions, was marked by 
excellent golf on both sides. The 
Eph's upset was not decided until 
the last foursome came to the eigh- 
teenth gi-een, where Rand sank a 
putt to defeat his opponent and 
give Williams the deciding point. 

MacManus Shoots 74 

The first foursome turned in the 
day's finest play as Holy Cross' 
Paul Harney lived up to advance 
notices defeating Rodie 3 and 2, 
with a medal score of 74 to Ro- 
die's 76. MacManus also compiled 
a 74 stroke total to win his match 
5 and 3. The best ball point was 
split as rain prevented the play- 
ing of extra holes. 

In the second foursome, the Eph- 
men swept all three points, as 
Taylor came in with a sparkJiiig 
78 to beat his opponent 6 and 4. 
Smith followed up with an 80 to 
win his match 3 and 2. 

Holy Cross took two points in 
the third group, as Daly defeated 
Tompkins 6 and 5 and the Cru- 
sader duo won the best ball 5 and 
4. Rand's final 1-up victory gave 
Williams the 5!i-3li decision.

Situation Unprecedented 

This was the first year since 
the installation of the quota sys-

that all the fraternities filled their 
quotas. Thus this year's situation 
when freshmen could not join 
liouses despite their desire to do 
.so is an unprecedented one. 

If the pending motion is passed 
by the graduate HMC, it will set 
a precedent. In accordance with 
llie noi-mal procedure, there would 
be open rushing during the month 
of October after tlie number of 
transfer students is Icnown. The 
quota is usually not adjusted un- 
til that time.

The department made this 
change because it felt that not 
enough time was being spent on 
this subject. The members also 
felt that more empliasis should be 
placed on Far Eastern Affairs, and 
for that reason a one term course 
on the Far East has been added 
to the existing term course on that

To help bridge the gap between

can be better understood if they 
are examined from a psycliological 
point of view, and the department 
thought that it would be appro-

Doubletalk: Club Version 


For weeks Ihe RECORD has been cumpaifiiiing hard lo win sup- 
Ijiul for CBM lood buying and wareliouse. At the same time, alter 
discussions witli inlluential Club members, llie RECORD actively 
uijposed the erection of a new Garlleld Club, which In its belief would 
licip to make the present social system permanent. Tuesday night the 
c;:i.ilj unanimously voted against the CBM project and in favor of a 
n. A Club. The RECOliD believes that the Club, by so domg, took 
,,rion detrimental to both the Club and the college. The KECOIiD

o! the main supporteis of total rushing. It now llnds iUself in the 
unenviable position of attempting to promote causes which find 
I. ,or with neither the Club nor the fraternities, 

lleBardlcss of the vote taken Tuesila.v niglit, the Club is not 
si .)nKly ill favor of a new buildinK. It fears that II it does not 
g uii record for a new Club, it will receive neither a new buildint; 
II i a freshman dining hall. The Club aiisents lo tlic constjuction of 

II ,v facilities primarily to make way for segregated freshman dining. 
liie Club knows, as does everyone else, that the erection of a new 
tkirfleld Club may elfecl the permanence of the present social system; 
b:,t it is afraid to say so in tlij open for fear of sacrificing everything., the Club did not oppose the CBM plan primarily be- 
(„ it believed it would not work. The Club has perhaps given 
t;,)od reasons, but it certainly has not given real reasons. The Club 
iiimbcrs voted lo sabolase the CUM plan l)e<ause Ihey feared it 
U')uld so benelil the fraternities as t*) intrench the present system. 
'I iuw feel that total rushing has a better chance of becoming an 
aituality if the CBiM project is scuttled. Parudoxically, the Club is 
iii'.alnst inaugural ing the warehouse plan now, but would .seemingly

reality, precisely the tune when it would benelil the fraternities most. 
Actually this is not a paradox but a hope that economic pressures 
will force a change before the new Club is finished. At the best this 
IS wishful thinking, at the worst it is narrow reasoning. 

Wliatever else tlie Club vole proves, it should show the Sterling 
f'oinmittee how desperate th" situation is. After the original furor 
suljsided, too many people thought that the social problem was 
.solved or had vanished. Yet the Club saw fit, Tuesday night, lo vote 
iwainst a proposal whicli has been generally hailed as a necessary 
to the Williams campus, not it is impractical, but because 
it would aid the fialernities. 

It is lilgh time that botli the fraternities and the Club began 

III think in terms of what is good for Williams College and not only 
in terms of what serves their own interests. Both the Club and the 
riaternities must assume responsibility for lliis college. If the Club 
wants total rushing it should work for it directly an not indulge in 
playing petty politics. It is a sad stale of alfairs. liowever, when the 
Club or anyone el.s€ feels it must conceal its real intentions in order 
to effect a necessary change. Meanwhile, the Club must not allow 
Its own interests to block vitai measures which are designea to bcnehl 
the college as a whole. The Club cannot dictate for Williams, Its 
lU'tlon has .served .so far to alienate various friends of the Club. It 
.should not be allowed to hurt the college.

The New England Political

'Ihe argument for and against 
deferred rushing of freshmen at 
We.sleyan University have had a 
brief period of popularity within 
the last month but now seem to be 
definitely on the wane. The pre- 
.senl rushing system at Wesleyan 
is similar to that here, with fresh- 
men pledging at the start of the 
fall term. 

In a memorandum to the col- 
lege body a tew weeks ago, Wes- 
Icyan's President Butlerflcld spoke 
of the many acknowledged inad- 
equacies in the present handling 
of freshmen and suggested seve- 
ral courses whiclr could be taken. 
I'rexy Seeks Class Unity 

Since Wesleyan freshmen do not 
room together as a unit but are 
.scattered throughout all the 
dorms, Butlerflelds first proposal 
included centralized freshmen dor 
milory units and a broad orienta 
tion program for the new students 
to take place early in the fall. It 
was believed that this suggestion 
would lead to greater class unity 
and spirit, 

Butterfield's second propo.sal ad- 
vocated deferred rushing on tlie 
grounds that it would in part solve 
the .scholarship and adjustment 
problems of the freshmen. He also 
felt that if the plan were inaugu- 
rated immediately, it would sub 
stantially reduce the number of 
freshmen left over after the next 
regular fall ru.shing period is com 

Houses Oppose Butterfleld 

The Wesleyan president also felt 
that fre.shmen should know as 
much as possible about each house 
prior to rushing and suggested 
iliat they eat their meals in ro- 
tation in the various fraternities 
prior to rushing,

Letter Explains Club Action 

To the Editor of The Williams RECORD: 

At the Garfield Club meeting Tuesday night the building of a new 
Club was unanimously endorsed by its members. In view of your recent 
editorials and the widespread opinion among many fraternily men 
against the building of a new Garfield Club, there will undoubtedly 
be some serious questioning as lo the Club's position in this contro- 
versy. Therefore, I think some attempt should be made to present the 
reasons that prompted many Club men to vote as they did. 

I do not claim to be acting as a .spokesman for the whole Garfield 
Club; I am simply .slating the feelings that I have heard expres.sed 
by a very large number of us, and the fact that the vote on this 
issue was unanimous should not necessarily be taken to mean that 
all the Club men voted as they did for these particular reasons. 

I believe that most of the Club men agreed entirely with the 
opinions expressed in the RECORD editorial of May 2 i entitled "No 
New Club"- Ed, I. If we had our choice in the matter we would prefer 
to have a Freshman dining hall ei-ecled witli facilities for a Student 
Union incorporated in it. We realize that a new Club might well 
prove a deterrent lo Complete Membership, which is still our foremost 
aim, and also that on purely practical grounds there are many dis- 
advantages to building a new Club. Why, then, the endorsement of 
an obviously ,second-best propcsal'.' 

The reason is really quite simple. The real purpose of the new- 
building, in our opinion, is to facilitate the program of Freshmen 
living and eating together and. possibly, deferred rushing. We believe 
tnat a common Freshman year will result in a more mature and 
sensible awareness on the part of the student body of the real values 
inhei-ent in a Williams education. This, in itself will help to alleviate 
many of the problems now faced by the Garfield Club and it should 
do a great deal to improve the spirit and attitudes of lire college as 
a whole. There is also the pos.sibility. however remote, tirat common 
Freshman eating and deferred rushing will lead to complete mem- 
bership, as it .seems to have done at Princeton and Amherst. This 
being the case, we feel that it is imperative that at least some build- 
ing be built immediately, whether a Club or a Fre.shman dining hall, 
i;i order that a common Freshman year can be begun at Williams. 

We understand that the Trustees have agreed to give the new- 
Club building a higher priority than the library, contrary to the 
original order-of-building plans, largely due to the insi,stence of 
President Baxter. In fact, the way things stand now, they may well 
authorize construction to begin .sometime this summer. If. however, 
i,ie Club were to suddenly come out vioienily opposed to ihe building

Meeting Tuesday night, the Gar- 
field Club by a 95',. majority re- 
jected plans for the building of a 
CBM food storage warehouse, 
whicli two weeks earlier had been 
approved by all fifteen fraternities. 
At the same lime the membership 
unanimously endorsed tlie imme- 
diate construction of a new Club 

In rejecting the separate CBM 
warehouse the Club argued that 
the proposed building could not 
bring about the desired heavy re- 
duction in board bills claimed by 
its supporters. 

Duplication Feared 

The Club stated that, with the 
construction of a new Garfield 
Club, a warehouse would be a 
needless, costly duplication of 
storage facilities tliat could be 
provided by either the new Club 
building, or the old Currier Hall. 
The membership emphasized its 
firm support for the principal of 
centralized food storage as an im- 
portant way to bring appreciable 
board sa\ings lo the sixteen social 
units provided that cosily duplica- 
tion of facilities can be avoided 
and r-pnirnl mti*i!if?pmonfr instpiiprt 

The Club resolution stated, "Re- 
solved: That the Garfield Club 
does not believe that CBM can re- 
duce costs by building a warehouse 
alone, but must have central man- 
agemenl to do away with the du- 
plication of work. Accordingly, the 
Garfield Club does not deem it fea- 
sible, and, in its own interest and 
in the interests of Williams Col- 
lege, it will not participate in any 
CBM venture of the Bowdoin ven- 
ture I warehouse). However, the 
Garfield Club would be elad to par- 
ticipate in CBM storage facilities 
as part of the new Garfield Club 
or the freshmen eating facilities," 

New Club Approved 

In accepting the Administra- 
tion's plan for a new Garfield Club, 
Ihe member,ship emphasized that 
ihis move should furlhcr plans for 
common freshman eating and de- 
ferred rushing. At the same lime 
they stipulated that the new Gar- 
field Club must be adaptable for 
either communal eating or as a 
freshman dining hall when and it 
necessary in the future. 

The unanimous resolution stat- 
ed: "Resolved: Since complete 
membership is not possible at the 
present time the Garfield Club de- 
sires the immediate construction 
of new Club facilities. The reasons 
for the Club's approval of a new 
building are: iD We lo ex- 
pedite .separate dining facilities 
and deferred rushing for the 
freshmen. i2i The new building 
will provide the nucleus for com-

Selly Explains Club Decision 

(Continued from Page One) 

of a new Garfielcl Club, they would undoubtedly desire to spend more 
time investigating the matter, which would seem the only wise thing 
to do. 

A possible result of this would be that the new building would 
then have to wait upon the completion of the addition to the library, 
and that i'reshman dining would have to postponed for a year or 
more. Any such postponement is particularly undesirable at this 
time, when one contemplates the way the present inflation is eating 
into the buying power of the money allotted the new Garfield Club. 

Furthermore, the money which is now set aside for the construc- 
tion of the new Garfield Cluo was collected for the specific purpose 
of building the Club. We understand that this money probably could 
not be snifted summarily to some other purpose, and there is also 
the possibility that some of the donors would refuse to pay pledges 
or request their money back should they be asked to allow 
it to be used for a Freshman dining hall rather than a new Club. In 
any case, it is obvious that this attempted shift of funds would at 
least consume some time, while the donors are consulted about it, 
and it might leave the college with less funds available for the new 

Thus, it seemed to us that to push for a Freshman dining hall, 
would mean running the risk of unavoidably postponing construction 
at all, with the possible result that the economic situation or the 
attitude of various donors might drag this postponement out mde- 
finitely. Feeling as we do, that Freshman living and eating, even if it 
does not lead to complete membership will be of such inestimable 
value to the college, we naturally decided that supporting a change 
in plans from building a new Club to building a Freshman dining 
hall involved too large a risk to be taken unless a great deal might be 
gained thereby. 

We therefore voted in favor of a new Garfield Club PROVIDED 
it meets certain obvious, practical requirements. First, it should 
be built in such a way as to be easily expandable into facilities for 
communal eating. This seems only logical, since we have been led 
to believe that communal eating for the college is inevitable, no 
matter how distasteful it may seem, and if such is the case, then a 
new Club dining hall would be superfluous. 

By the same token, we feel that it would be best to build the 
CBM warehouse as a part of the new Club. Here again, in the event 
of communal eating for the college, it would be natural to want to 
have the storehouse next to the kiicnen. l^'urthermore, m the shori 
run, it would also avoid the duplication of the freezing plant, etc 
necessary for the new Club anyway. 

A second requirement for the proposed Garfield Club is that 
it should be capable of feeding the Freshman class should a situation 
arise in which the Garfield Club no longer needs the new facilities, 
before the expected advent of communal eating for the college as a 
whole. Such a situation would naturally arise in the event that 
complete memtiership comes about, but it is even more likely to 
come about due to a reduction in the size of the Garfield Club. With 
Freshman segregation there will undoubtedly be a need to raise 
quotas, and the reduced size of the Club may make it advisable to 
have the Club and the Freshmen exchange facilities. 

A final requirement, or maybe desire would be a better word, 
is that the existence of the new Club should not be used as an argu- 
ment against the institution of complete rushing should the students 
desire to implement such a plan at some future date. We do not con 
sider a new Club an alternative to complete membership, but merely 
a way of bettering the present social system until the advent of 
Complete membership. The new Club is not a cure for the Garfield 
Club problem; at best it may prove to be a partial pain-killer.

Can Retain Present System, 
Still Solve Chapel Problem 

From the RECORD i21 Apr.) it appears that it is time for the 
"Chapel Problem" to be raised again. Unfortunately it has been 
brought up by the same old argument. My object in writing, there- 
fore, is not with intent to discourage the discussion, and certainly 
not to try and eliminate the issue, (indeed a year at Williams would 
not seem the same without it), but to suggest that these biemiial 
rationalizations are getting a bit tiresome, and a new approacli is 

To begin with, then, I should lilce to answer Mr. Rudolph's letter 
point by point for although he states much that is true it does not 
seem peculiarly applicable to the college chapel. 

1. Many students do attend some religious service merely to obtain 
chapel credit; many students also attend classes and indeed college 
merely to obtain "credit". 

2. They contribute nothing to the religious service: Is the implication 
that students always contribute to classes and other college activities? 

3. They often harm the religious experience others seek to obtain 
at such services: This I strongly doubt. The services at the local 
churches are conducive to worship, and even the chapel services are 
quite decent. The guest speakers say they thoroughly enjoy addressing 
that evening service. I should also suggest that Mr. Rudolph's state- 
ment about religion being a continuous practice is quite profound, 
but how could anyone thus devoted find any service including "non- 
contributing" individuals as harmful? 

4. Students religious beliefs are not completely settled: Fabulous! 
Precisely what student beliefs in any field are completely settled? 
Isn't that very problem one of the principle reasons for going to 

5. The chapel system has only built "resentment against organ- 
ized religion:" The chapel system has nothing to do with "organized" 
or "disorganized" religion. The college fortunately realizes that 
religion per se is a fundamental quality of human existence, and is 
therefore not to be ignored or treated as a whim. The person who 
"resents" being exposed to it is surely that type of Individual who 
resents anything that is not the product of his own will - including 
compulsory class attendance and examinations. 

6. As far as discussion groups and attaining a "religious experience" 
therein my suggustion would be to consider the numerous meetings 
continuously held. Both St. John's and the Congregational churches 
maintain student meetings, gatherings and suppers with faculty as 
well as ministerial speakers, and with the subjects generally left up 
to the students themselves. Besides this there are gatherings after the 
chapel service, gatherings held by the W.C.A., and now meetings 
ot the Washington Gladden society. 

"Di<tcussion" Plan Unrealistic 

A regular participant at these gatherings will usually see the 
same faces, and not very many at that. It would appear, then, that 
such meetings are not of suffl.,.cnt Interest to remove the "stigmu 
of the chapel service itself from them were they made compulsory or 
otherwise put on the same basis as the religious service. There would 
thus appear to be little easing of the problem by such an alternative 
The only conceivable advantage would be possibly making the whole 
program less distasteful, and if religion has to be put on that basis 
then I say lets obliterate it from men's minds everywhere. 

Finally Mr. Rudolph repeats his thesis that hi.s program would 
remove those students that "contribute nothing" to religious services 
This is an interesting statement since it must be admitted that even 
as a pre-ministerial student I personally contribute nothing (outside 
of the collection plate) to any service I attend, and indeed I wonder 
who does or rather how can one? 

In closing the usual comment is applied, to whit; "why doesn't 
the 'administration' do something about it?" 

From this point, then. I should like to suggest a few considerations 

Solution: Vary Speakers 

There are certain students who are not getting much out of the 
religious program at Williams, and there are those who find the pre- 
sent guest speaker system monotonous. Therefore, land this pro- 
posal is now before the chapel committee) I suggest that a really 
exceptional guest preacher be alternated with a member of our own 
faculty (any department), and then with some carefully selected 
student. This should not only arouse more interest, but will have an 
integrating affect between the intellectual and religious aspects ot 
the college. With such a system the subject matter should be perti- 
nent, and not delivered as "another lecture." 

Another point to be considered is that of having more faiths 
represented by either the guest preacher, or even an outstanding 

Secondly, with regard to the compulsory aspect of the "chapel 
problem" I should Ike to contend that the administration has done 
something about it. They have maintained the historical reality ot 
the vitality of religion and the church to man. In providing a super- 
ior liberal arts education this factor has, therefore, been included. 
The church or religion can be approached intellectually or emotionally, 
but It should be approached. 

Religious Education Vital 

Grant Noble is not trying to convert anyone, nor Is the admin- 
istration promoting an 2veryone-in-tune-with-the-Inflnite policy. Ev- 
eryone is duly warned of what the ro'lo.^r feels is the best educational 
program. Students are accepted — not Invited to Join the student body, 
and anyone who selects Williams should do so by accepting the col- 
lege as a whole — not simply for certain characteristics. 

If something is wrong it can and will be changed. However, 
when something rubs the wrong way in life it Is time for sincere 
Introspection and not frenzied blaming of the guy in the head office. 
Much In every organization — be It govt., army, business, or college 
can be disturbing, but we believe in the principles and purposes In- 
volved — back It. If not, outline a better principle. 

I argue thusly neither in defense of compulsory chapel or the 
administration. Nor do I speak necessarily for the chapel committee. 
Rather it Is through a personal conviction in the purposes of an 
American education, the principles of which I feel Williams as an 
established institution fulfills. 

The words of former president Henry Hopkins are testimony of 
these principles. They are engraved on the wall opposite the West 
entrance to the chapel, and Include the following: 

"... In accepting this gift (the chapel building) we declare 
anew our belief that an education in which the religious nature Is 
ignored cannot produce the noblest type ot men ..."

Today Is the biggest day of the 
year for mlUlons of racing fans 
wlio anxiously await the running 
of the 77 th Kentucky Derby at 
ChurehlU Downs. 

Ui this year's gallop for the roses 
and a Juicy $100,000 purse, It's 
imybody's race. If you readers will 
recall, back In October of last year 
we picked Battlefield as our choice 
lor this year's Derby, and until se- 
veral weeks ago it looked like a 
rood pick. However, due to poor 
I raining shape, Battlefield has 
Iwen declared along with the other 
winter-book favorite. Uncle Mlltie. 
This inability of racing fans to 
i,ick anything "lukeworm" to a 
javorlte has paved the way for 
what may quite likely be the larg- 
, si Derby field since 1937 when 
.J horses went In the running for 
I le three-yeai-old honors. The 
: irgest field was in 1928 when 
■elgn Count outdistanced 21 rl- 
;ils to win the colorful turf classic. 
The odds seem to favor Mrs. 
lora Mikell's Repetoire and the 
Cain Hoy stable's flash Battle 
Morn, who finished one-two re- 
ijfctively In the Wood Memorial 
wo weeks back. Yours truly wit- 
lessed the Wood Memorial at Ja- 
i.iacia, and after watching Rep- 
■ toire's tiring at the mile and 
jne/slxteenth, I am convinced 
that the chestnut colt won't be ov- 
irly fond of the mile and one 
iiuarter route today. Battle Morn 
lias been a strong finisher in all 
tests this year, but swerving wide 
m the stretch could cost him the 
Derby as it did the Memorial. 

Mameluke and Counterpoint 
give the Whitney Stables a solid 
entry, and though both are slow 
starters, Mameluke appears to be 
one of the horses to beat. His time 
of 2:04 3/5 In a late time trial this 
week is as good as any trial on 
record .... The King Ranch entry, 
Sonic, under tiie keen condition- 
ing of trainer Max Hlrsch who 
brought Middleground thru last 
year is another colt receiving hea- 
vy support. You can't count Fan- 
fare out either, he's trained by 
cagy Ben Jones who dispatched 
unknown Ponder to clout the ta- 
lent in 1949. 

There's no doubt about It .... 
conclusions and predictions are 
not being given with any haste, 
for the impending run for the roses 
is regarded as one of the most wide 
open derbies in a history that 
started in 187&. 

However, a strong finish In the 
Wood Memorial which brought 
him from near last to fifth, a good 
rider Tom Atkinson, and a pro- 
duct of the famous Green tree 
Stables make 8-1 shot Big Stretch 
my choice for 1951 Derby honors. 
Thougli he has shown very little 
In both derby trials, he should go 
today. Besides Big Stretch, there 
is a long shot, 15-1 Timely Reward, 
the hope of the Gllroy Stables. 
Tliough this colt has received lit- 
tle support in pre-derby statistics, 
1 still believe that at the longer 
distance this bay son of famous 
Reaping Reward may be in a good 
position to enter the floral busi-

Tallying on four-run uprisings 
in the first and seventh innings,

ched its first win of the campaign 
with an 8-4 triumph over the 
Union College squad at Schenec-

Behind an eleven hit Eph barr-

nered his initial triumph of the 
season, with Mike Puffer coming 
on in the eighth to turn in a 
splendid relief performance. 
Big First Inning 

The Ephmen set right to work 
in the opening frame with De- 
Llsser's walk and Ferrl's single 
being followed by a booming triple 
off the bat of Harry Sheehy. 
Sheehy also came in to score as 
Dorsey filed deep to center; but 
with two down, Billy Callaghan's 
bingle kept the rally alive. Follow- 
ing Kulsar's walk, the two speedy 
base-runners executed a double 
steal, and with the Union throw 
carrying into center field Callag- 
han came all the way around to 

Poor control kept Beard con- 
tinually in hot water throughout 
the seven innings he worked. Un-

three base on balls.

Blessed with the best weather of 
the year, the two intramural soft- 
ball leagues were able to get in a 
full slate of games early this week 
on Monday and Tuesday. 

Monday, saw one of the best 
played games of the year, as the 
defending champion Betes scored 
a nine inning, 9-2 victory over the 
previously undefeated Phi Gams. 
The game was extremely close with 
brilliant fielding plays dominating 
the action until the ninth. Then 
pitcher Tenny Shad of the Phi 
Gams tired and the Betes rallied 
for seven big markers. The big 
blast of the inning was Rick Jeff- 
ries' home-run with the bases 
loaded. Tod Tillinghast also clouted 
a circuit blow for the Betes in 
this frame. 

Dekes Also Win 

Another important game on 
Monday, saw the Dekes record 
their third victory by downing the 
victoryless Sigs 7-4. Pete Deb- 
evoise and Bobby Shultz handled 
the pitching chores capably for 
the Dekes, with Shultz especially 
shining in a three inning relief 
job. At the bat, Bruce Bracken 
ridge pounded out a three run 
homer, while George MacWhorter 
got a double and triple driving in 
three tallies. 

In the other two games on Mon- 
day, the Phi Sigs dropped the 
Club by a 3-2 score, while the 
Theta Delts outlasted the DU's in 
a real slug-fest, 21-17. The Phi

Scoring poorly, the Eph golfers 
nevertheless managed to overcome 
the Dutchmen and only lose one

The first foursome witnessed the

where Rodie gained a 1 up victory. 
In the same group Frank Mac 
Manus had an easier time, downing 
his opponent by a 5 and 4 count. 
The best ball point went to Wll- 
hams, 4 and 3. 

Low medal score for the day 
was recorded by Berry Smith, 
playing in the second foursome, 
as he shot a 76 to win his match 
4 and 3. Ted Taylor contributed 
another point to the Williams cause 
by winning his match 3 and 2.

All Ephs Win 

Squires experienced little diffi- 
culty in downing Craver 6-3, 6-2. 
Henry Norton was pressed the first 
set, but was too good for Schloss- 
berg, winning 7-5, 6-1. Tom Kent 
scored a easy 6-0, 6-3 victory over 
Tait at the third position. 

Symington rallied after di'opping 
the first set to triumph over Geser

Lake 6-1, 6-2, and George MuUer 
completed the singles rout, de-

with Barry Broker narrowly out 
pitching Seth Shapiro. Two homers 
one by Bob Sentner, and the other 
by Dick Porter, were the big Phi 
Sig blows. As for the DU - Theta 
Delt game, Gordie Winter and Dick 
Wallace each hit two run homers 
for their respective sides, but the 
game on the whole was marked by 
rather ragged fielding. 

Saints Lead Tuesday League 

With all teams having completed 
three games in the Tuesday-Thurs- 
day league, the Saints find them- 
selves in the enviable position of 
being the only undefeated team 
in their loop. They scored their 
third victory on Tuesday, 9-6, at 
the expense of the Kaps. Jack Or- 
deman pitclied for the Saints but 
was helped greatly by Phil Smith's 
homer with two on and Bobby 
Gulick's two-run double. 

Other Tuesday samcs :;a'.v the 
Phi Delts score a brilliant 2-1 
victory over the Chi Psi's. The 
game was marked by excellent 
pitching, especially by the Phi 
Delts Jerry Olson. The junior 
twirler allowed only one hit, and 
struck out ten men. Ken Heekin 
also pitched a fine game for the 
Chipsi's, but his mates could get 
him no x'uns. 

Psi Us Win 

In the last two games played on 
Tuesday, the Psi U's took a thrill- 
ing mound duel from the Zetes, 
while the AD's poimded the D. 
Phi's 16-2. In tjie former game, 
Archie Beard, Psi U hurler, was 
the big gun, sprinkling four hits 
for a shut-out. His feat was made 
all the better by the fact that he 
only walked one batter. 

In the last game, it was a case 
of Just too much batting power, £is 
the AD'S pounded the D. Phi's 
Everyone hit for the AD's, with 
Jack Elicker knocking out a three 
run homer, while pitcher Moe

Wesleyan student body is that de- 
ferred rushing is an extremely 
doubtful solution to the problem. 
It is quite generally felt that fra- 
ternities are a material aid to 
freshmen both socially and .scho- 
lastlrally. The tension involved in 
the anticipation of future rushing 
might well interfere with the scho- 
lastic endeavor of the entire stu- 
dent body. 

A student committee which vi- 
sited Amherst to study the de- 
ferred rushing system in opera- 
tion there reported that a sim- 
ilar system could not operate at 
Wesleyan because of the difference 
in eating, rooming and social fa- 
cilities of the two colleges. 

In view of the report of this 
committee, the college social units

on the subject. 

UC Sets Quotas 

HevokliiK the action of their 
February meetint!, the committee 
decided almost unanimously that 
till' UC should be allowed to .set 
house quotas after consultation 
with the Graduate Council. These 
quotas must meet the approval of 
tile administration. 

By Its action on deferred rush- 
iiit:. the Sterling Committee agreed 
ill minciple with the Gargoyle So- 
ciety. The latter group advocated 
leitvlng the decision on quota sys- 
lcm.s entirely to the UC. 

Graduate Committee Idea 

The Graduate Committee earl- 
ier expressed the opinion that the 
decision on deferred rushing should 
be postponed until the college ac- 
cepts freshman segregation. They 
stilled that any action on quota 
sy.steras should also be taken at 
tliat time. 

Professor Keller made the other 
mum suggestion at the meeting. 
Ueelarlng that Prosh eating and 
deferred rushing are two Integral 
ideas, Keller also advised that the 
GHrfleld Club and the Student 
Union be combined. 

The Sterling Committee did not 
cliange its original plan favoring 
Ihe building of a West College unit

recognized that there are probab-

The Rev. A. Grant Noble, who 
resigns as Chaplain in June. 

At a meeting of the Trustees 
Saturday, May 5. numerous 
changes in the administration and 
faculty of the college were dis- 
cussed and verified. Foremost a- 
mong these changes was the an- 
nouncement that A. Grant Noble 
has resigned his post as college 
chaplain .so that he might devote 
his full time to the busincs of St 
John's Parish. 

Dr. Noble stated "I came to Wil- 
liamstown in 1936 as Rector of 
St. John's Church, and in 1938 
I became Chaplain of Williams 
College. During the past thirteen 
yeais the work in these two posi- 
tions has grown considerably, on 
the campus and among the alum- 
ni. I believe the time has come for 
Williams to have a full time chap- 
lain. It has been a privilege and 
an honor to have .served the col- 
lege which my forefathers help- 
ed to found . . . and which I deep- 
ly love. I shall continue to be in 
touch with the Williams family 
a-s Rector of St. John's Church." 
Claude A. Roebuck, present as- 
sistant chaplain will be acting 
chaplain for one year, and will 
remain on the faculty as a part- 
time ln.structor In Religion. 
Miss Richmond on Leave 
Also disclosed was the fact that 
David Truman, associate Profes- 
sor of Political Science, who has 
been on leave this past year, has 
received a profes.sorshlp at Colum- 
bia University. Leaves of absence 
for the coming academic year have 
been granted to Alfred O. Emslle, 
Professor of Physics who plans 
to pursue war research, and Miss

The announcement of the found- 
ing of the Robert Sterling Clark 
Art Institute in Williamstown was 
made by its directors simultaneous-

seum of fine arts to be erected 
here in Williamstown. 

Local Museum Planned 

Referring to a new museum, Mr. 
Karl E. Weston, a Williamstown 
resident and member of the Board 
of Directois, has stated that it 
will be built in the near future on 
the old Adriance estate on South 
Street across from the golf course. 
Meanwhile, he said, the exhibi- 
tions will be held in the Lawrence 
Art Museum. 

The first of these exhibits will

College Plans 

Alipearing before the UC Mon- 
day evening, President Baxter urg- 
ed that, in order to gain the bene- 
fits of CBM food buying by next 
fall, the cellar of the temporary 
section of the Garfield Club din- 
ing liall be converted into a tem- 
porary warehouse to be used 
until a permanent storage plant 
can be built as part of tlie new 
Garfield Club. 

All house presidents voted in 
support of this measure. The club's 
reaction was voiced last night and 
was not available when this issue 
went to press. This plan was put 
forth jince it would be iiiipussibie 
to build a separate building by 
September, 1951. 

Completion by 1952 

Pushing plans for completion of 
a new Garfield Club, with perma- 
nent CBM storage facilities at- 
tached, separate tre.shmen eat- 
ing, and a student union by the 
opening of college in 1952, Baxter 
stated that the Currier storehouse 
would help reduce fraternity bills 
for the interim year. 

Tentative plans call for the ad- 
dition of another dining room to 
Currier Hall to accommodate 300 
freshmen. The displaced Garfield 
Club members would move into a 
new Club building also housing 
CBM. and the Currier wooden ad- 
dition w-ould be torn down. 

Baxter would also like to use

Times to Survey 
Williams Students 

Paper Seeks Reaction 
To McCarthy Tactics 

Intersted in the degree to which 
"McCarthyism" has affected col- 
lege campuses, the "New York 
Times" is conducting a survey of 
student attitudes in fifty colleges 
over the country, ten of which have 
been listed in New England. Wil- 
liams is among the colleges which 
will be queried. 

John H. Penton. New England 
correspondent for the "Times", 
says "McCarthyism" does not only 
refer to the more active attitude 
associated with the Senator In 
question. It could also refer to a 
new reluctance on the part of 
students In stating their positions 
on public issues for fear of being 
labelled "pro-left-wingers" or "pro- 
communists", and perhaps suffer- 
ing at the hands of future employ- 

The ten New England colleges 
listed for the survey are: Amherst, 
Bowdoln, Dartmouth, Harvard. Mt. 
Holyoke. RadclilTe, Smith, Tufts, 
Wellesley and Williams. The series 
covering the results of the sur- 
vey will appear shortly In the 
"New York Times". 

Tonight the curtain goes up at 
8:30 for the gala world premier 
of "Zanuck in the Streets', Bill- 
ville's tribute to the motion pic- 
lure industry. Complete with "a 
cast of thousands" - or at least 
.sixty anyway, the annual Cap 
and Bells musical is scheduled for 
nmhtly showings through Satur- 

According to Assistant AMT Di- 
rector William J. Martin, the show 
is sold out Friday and Saturday, 
but a number of good seats are 
available for tonight's and Thurs- 
day's performances. 

Fifteen Skits and Dance" 
Directed by AMT head David G. 
Bryant and William J. Martin, 
along with "Cecil B." Guerney '52 
and "Rosselini" Luthy '51 with 
sets by John Cohen '54 and chor- 
eography by Ida Kay, the musical 
exuavaganza features fifteen skits 
and dances and "countless " songs 
devoted to a critical appraisal of 
the flicks and their production. 

The shows opens in an atmos- 
phere of hushed solemnity, the 
showing of Academy Award win- 
ners of the year. This atmosphere 
is soon replaced by one of savage 
primitive biu'barity in deepest 
Ubangi territory as the best scenes 
from the Award-winning flick, 
"King Solomon's Crimes", are 
flashed on the screen. 

Tempting Seductress 

The British film industry comes 
in for some attention with the 
showing of J. Author Rank's so- 
phisticated drawing-room comedy 
"Call Me Coward". The inner work 
ings of fllmdoms constant search 
for talant are revealed as four of 
Sam Goldwyn's top scripters re- 
port on their frenzied chase of 
the tempting seductress known as 
"Helen of Troy, New York". 

Whining top cultural honors for 
the year for successfully bringing 
grand opera to the masses, the 
screen version of "The Barber of 
Seville" is saluted by a perfor- 
mance of its popular, "Ode to a 
Toad '. The simple, unsophisticated 
charms of Italian films are praised 
in a special showing of the cock- 
tail scene from "Bitter Bicycles", 
a tribute to the Italian peasant. 

College Life Hit 

After a brief but torrid scene 
from the best crime film of the 
year, the grim and brutal "Hum-

picture of the impact of the diaft

gram this week designed to ac- 
quaint the college listener with 
the folk music of the various

Club under the leadership of 
Ed Ge.ssner. 

Music from six different na- 
tions — Belgium. Denmark, I- 
raq. Italy, Germany, and the 
Ukraine — will be played with 
an understanding of the pecu- 
liarities of the music of each 
country. An informal Introduc- 
tion will be given to each group 
of .selections by Perc Madsen. 
The show will start this Wed- 
nesday at 7:30 p.m. 



Noble Resigns 

It was with considerable surprise and sincere regrei that 
we received the news of Doctor Noble's resignation. However, 
there is no disputing his reasons tor resignation. The duties 
of his own parish and of the college chaplain have increased 
tremendously over the past years till they hove become a 
burden too taxing for one man to cope with. 

During his long term of service to the college Dr. Noble 
has won many firm friends through the thought and energy he 
has given to strengthen the Williams community. He worked 
patiently to retain the meaning of religion on this campus 
during the time our system came under its severest attack. 
Although he has relinquished his official post as chaplain. Dr. 
Noble will continue always to be an integral part of the Wil- 
liams family.

Letters to the Editor 

by Tom Adkins 
Wed: "Bitter Rice." This film is realistically basic or basically realis- 
tic, whichever you choose. It will certainly whet the appetites ot the 
houseparty minded audience, and certain scenes will certainly be im- 
itated before the close of the weekend. As for the picture itself, it 
lias some powerful scenes some excellent acting, and some wonderful 
camera work. It also has a few overly long sections which don't 
seem to prove much, but these can be gotten through easily by re- 
membering that something much more entertaining is sure to be on 
the way. Only the tact that the heroine is "sexier than Mae West 
and Jane Russell both" will prevent the theatre from being sold out; 
this type of announcement may shock half of the "Saints and Sin- 
ners" and thus seriously reduce ticket sales. 

Thu-Fri: "September Affair." Joseph Cotton and Joan Fontaine in 
a travelogue of Italy. Lovely siiots of Capri, Naples, etc., and some 
fine music, do not quite compensate for the excessive sentimentality. 
A brave attempt is made to get away from convention, but the ending 
is strictly according to Johnson, and is both unsatisfying and incon- 
sistent. The acting of the principles is good, and so is the basic idea, 
but the whole thing falls out of joint in attempting to reverse its 
field too quickly and too completely. 

Sat-Sun: "At War With the Army". By tar the funniest picture Mar- 
tin and Lewis have done — it is one hilarious incident after another. 
The humor from all the service pictures Abbot and Costello ever made 
wouldn't fill the first scene of this one. Might get your date in a silly 
enough mood to be game for anything. 

Men: "Faust and the Devil." This movie about the man who sold his 
soul to the Devil for a few hours of feminine charm is certainly suit- 
able for this particular Monday. In addition, it contains some great 
music and splendid pageantry. Worth seeing. 

I Letters to the Editor | 

Prosrressive or Foolish? 

i^ , '' ' 

To the Editor of the Williams RECORD: 

Referring to your editorial in the issue of March 29, entitled 
"Wesleyan Backs Down", I would like to inquire how far you con- 
sider academic freedom to go. 

For instance, you do not have courses on atheism, adultery or 

Is it not a little silly to say it is a denial of freedom of speech 
to show good common sense and not invite two Communists to ad- 
dress a meeting which we presume is seriously contemplating the 
solution of the problem? 

The basis of freedom ot speech is a presumption that people are 
trying to reach the best possible conclusion for all concerned. Even 
a very superficial study of Communism Indicates that Communists 
are not in any way interested in the truth, but have made a cult out 
of a clever use of the '-isfht. T.s it not a little ridiculous to engage in 
logical discussions with those who deny logic? 

Lest you think this letter comes from a reactionary newspaper 
publisher, may I say that while at Williams I was a director of its 
Fonim. Among other speakers I recollect having invited Bill Green, 
President of the A. F. of L. At that time it was a daring thing to do, 
and Green was the flist labor leader to address the under-gradu- 
ates at Williams. 

I would like to suggest thai your stand in favor of the two Com- 
munists is not progressive but merely a little foolish. 

Very sincerely, 

William Loeb '27 

(Mr, Loeb s president and publisher of the "Manchester (New Hamp- 
shire) Union Leader" and the "New Hampshire Sunday News." — Ed.) 

Economical or Chimerical? 

TO the Editor of the Williams RECORD: 

At its meeting last week the Garfield Club: 

1. Unamiously endorsed President Baxter's plan for the im- 
mediate construction of a new Garfield Club to be built in 
such a way that it can be expanded into college dining facil- 
ities when necessary. 

2. Rejected the proposed separate CBM warehouse by a 95 per- 
cent majority. 

3. Advocated including CBM storage facilities in the new Gar- 
field Club building or in the freshmen dining facilities by a 
95 percent majority. 

4. Unanimously endorsed the Sterling Committee's recommenda- 
tion that the freshmen eat and live together. 

5. Unanimously reaffli-med its desire for eventual complete 
fraternity membership. 

The Club rejected the separate CBM warehouse because it be- 
lieves that CBM carmot reduce costs by building a warehouse alone. 
The nature of the scheme is such that there is serious doubt whether 
any savings could be realized by this chimerical scheme. The high 
cost of board at Williams lies in the duplication of services in the 16 
social units, and CBM offers no solution tor this. Furthermore, a sep- 
arate CBM warehouse would be a needless expense and a duplica- 
tion of facilities which could be more efficiently constructed as part 
of the new Garfield Club building or in conjunction with fi'eshmen 
dining facilities. 

The other items listed above are self-explanatory and obviously 
necessary for the good of Williams College.

(The motions passed at the Club on May 2, 1951 were proposed by 
Katcher and Fischer, and hence the above letter may be regarded 
as a seml-offloial statement of the Club poaltlon. — Ed.) 

Education or Straiglitjacket? 

To the Editor of the Williams RECORD: 

I read with great interest Professor O'Neill's comment in (last) 
Wednesday's RECORD concemlng Dick Squires' letter on "American 
education". It seems that Professor O'Neill has a rather unusual 
concept of education himself. He speaks of the faculty's "effort to 
educate Mr. Richard Squires". I would say that Dick's individuality 
of thought in holding an opinion contrary to that of a faculty mem- 
ber is sufficient evidence that he has profited by his education. 

Professor O'Neill, however, finds that Dick's letter "shows us 
so very clearly the nature and magnitude of our task". Does he feel 
that the nature of the task is to channel Dick's thoughts into a set 
pattern decreed by liim and his colleagues? This is a far cry from 
"Mark Hopkins on one end of a log and a student on the other." 

I have always believed that a student comes to college to ac- 
quire the necessary intellectual tools with which to develop his own 
opinions. The function of the faculty is to provide these tools, and then 
help the student use tliem to arrive at his own conclusions. 

It is thanks to fellows like Dick Squires that the "magnitude" 
of Professor O'Neill's task is so nreat, and I hope that he never suc- 
ceeds in putting student thought in a straitjacket. 

Charles E. Lange '53 

Iron Needle 

To the Editor of the Williams RECORD: 

Just for the hell of it, let me predict at this early date (May 2) 
the progress of "I'affaire Squires" in your columns. I see four stages: 
(11 Squires' letter (100% sincere and well intentioned; 97'i uninform 
ed; unwittingly offensive in tone). (2i My letter (malicious and ironic 
no facts). 1 3) Reply to mine from student as yet unknown (intemper- 
ate, contentions). (4) Letter from local educator of considerable sta- 
ture — it should be from President Baxter — stating the facts about 
educational opportunity in America (cool, statistical, unanswerable) 

Result: a matter of national consequence will have been discuss- 
ed; truth disseminated; education served; frayed tempers soothed 
Let all rejoice.

The Challeemen face a tough 
opponent this afternoon when they 
liliiy host to Harvard on the Sage 
Hall courts. 

Parents Weekend proved to be 
in invigorating stimulus to Wil- 
liams frosh athletic squads as four 
teams gained victories in baseball, 
lacrosse, golf, and tennis. 

Closest of the struggles was the 
baseball game on Friday with 
Nichols Jr. College. The victory 
was not decided until the last half 
of the ninth inning, when Eph 
left-fielder Paul Zeckhausen got 
his fourth hit, a double, to drive 
in Walt Creer and give his team a 
11-10 win. 

Rog Moody, who relieved starter 
Paul Murphy during a four run 
Nichols uprising in the seventh, 
was the winning pitcher for the 
Ephs who were behind throughout 
most of the game, largely through 
nine fielding miscues. Finally, in 
the eightli inning, the purple ral- 
lied for five runs, only to have 
Nichols retaliate with three runs 
in their half of the ninth, setting 
the stage for Zeckhausen's game 
winning blow. 

Lacrosse beats Harvard 

Another outstanding Williams 
victory was scored, as the frosh 
lacrosse team journeyed to Cam- 
bridge where they scored a 7-4 
win over Harvard, thus giving the 
yearlings their third straight tri- 
umph. Coach Townsend's charges 
got oil to an early 3-0 lead, on 
two goals by Dave West, and one 
by Stu Chase. The i-est of the 
lialf was lipent in repulsing a se- 
ries of Crimson advances, and 
tlie half ended witli Williams on 
the long end of a 3-0 score. 

In the second half, the Ephs 
again got off to a .swift start as 
goals by Hugh Murphy, Dave

their lead to 6-0. Here, the offense

The golf team maintained its 
unblemished record Saturday by 
downing previously undefeated 
RPI, 6!;-2!;, although the match, 
closer than the score would indi- 
cate, was not decided until the 
nth hole of the last foursome. 

Williams lead 4-2 after the first 
two four.somes had finished, but 
needed one more point to take the 
match. The combination of Don 
Rand and Steve Kaufman won 
their best ball on the next to last 
green to cinch the contest. 

Despite a medal scoie of 75 on 
the strange Troy Country Club 
course. Bill Rodie could only halve 
his match with Korylak. But 
Prank MacManus, with a 72, de- 
feated Craig easily, 6-4, and the 
Ephmen won the best ball point 
as well, 3 and 2. 

Smith Shoots a 76 

The second Purple foursome 
was held to a split in the points, 
with Berry Smith winning his 
match over Grinaldi by a 4-2 
count while the best ball was

take his match. Hatch, however 
gained RPI's only individual tri- 
umph of the day, downing Ted 
Taylor, 4 and 3. 

The final Williams pair, need- 
ing one point for victory, ran into 
trouble. The best ball was a see- 
saw battle all the way, but the 
Ephs finally took it and the tri- 
umph. Kaufman, after spotting 
RPI's Mow 4-up on the first five 
holes, won on the 18th, 1-up. Rand

An aggressive and well-balanc- 
ed Crimson lacrosse team jumped 
to a quick 1-0 lead in the first 
period of Saturday's game at Har- 
vard and were never headed as 
they won their fifth straight vic- 
tory, beating Coach Harvey Pot- 
ter's crippled stickmen, 11-6. 

Althougli the Purple trailed 1-2, 
2-6 and 4-9 at the end of each of 
the three periods, the score belit-

Second Period Splurge 

Dave Harrison tied the score for 
Williams 1-1 at 5:13 of the first 
period on a pass from midfielder 
Bob Day who scored twice him 
self in the second and fourth pe 
riods. Leading by one point, the 
Haivardmen opened up with a 
four goal attack in the second 
period. Rick Hudner was instru- 
mental in sparking the Harvard 
surge as he passed tor scores five 
times in the first two periods.

With a seventh and eight inn- 
ing barrage of eleven runs on as 
many hits, the Ephmen needed 
little more in annexing the first 
leg of the Little Three Crown by 
trouncing Wesleyan 11-3 before a 
thrilled Parents' Day throng at 
V/eslon Field Saturday. 

Mike Puffer and Dave Nixon 
tangled in a pitcher's duel for six 
innings, with Nixon shutting out 
the Ephmen allowmg but two 
scratch hits, while the Wesmen 
were able to garner three runs 
off Puffer. 

Seventh Inning Explosion 

After hurling masterfully for 
the first six frames, Nixon fell 
completely apart in the seventh 
inning as 12 men came to the plate. 
After lead off man John Kulsar 
had punched a single to left, De- 
Popolo walked; and on tlie very 
first pitch, Mike Puffer drove a 
long drive over the right fielder's 
head for two bases and two runs. 
Puffer then came in to score the 
tying run on Ferri's fly to right. 
The Ephmen loaded the bases 
without benefit of a hit as De- 
Lisser reached on an error. Lynch 
was hit by a pitch, and Hai'ry 
Sheehy was passed intentionally 
tor a possible double-play set-up. 

With the stage set tor a play at 
any base, Pete Fisher strolled to 
the plate. Having gone hitless in 
three previous tries, the big left 
fielder tied into Nixon's second 
pitch sending a towering 410 foot 
drive to the base of the left-center 
field embankment as four runs 
dented home plate and the Purple 
soared Into the lead. After the 
smoke had finally cleared. Puffer 
found himself atop a 7-3 lead and 
only six outs away from victory.

More fireworks came in the 
eighth as the Eph bats once again 
caught fire. Hammering seven

the game as he held together the 
Williams defense against contin- 
ual Crimson attacks. 

The Sage Hall courts were the 
scene of the Pi'eshmen tennis teams 
second victory In three starts Sat- 
urday afternoon, as they handed 
Kent a 7-2 set-back. Forced Into 
three sets in four of the six single 
matches, all of which were closely 
contested, the Chaffeemen led 4-2 
going into the doubles, where 
clean sweep iced the match. 

The outstanding match of the 
afternoon, was at the number one 
singles, where Johnny Brownell 
outlasted his opponent in three 
close sets. The summaries: 

Singles: Brownell (W) defeat- 
ed Boardman (K) 7-5, 4-6, 6-4; 
Pulkerson (W) defeated Patter- 
son (K> 6-2, 7-9, 6-2; Tewksbury 
iK) defeated Zlegler IW) 7-5, 7-5; 
St. Amant (W) defeated Mills (K) 
4-6, 6-3, 6-3; Elish (W) defeated 
Isenhart (K) 8-6, 9-7; HaiTis (K) 
defeated Dealy (W) 6-2, 3-6, 6-3. 
Golfers Triumph 
The final win of the weekend was 
turned in by the Frosh golfers 
who turned back Nichols on Friday 
by a 8-1 score, in a match played 
over the Taconic links. Ed Mauro, 
playing number one for Williams, 
showed the way, as he scored a 
2-1 victory, and he combined with 
Ray Nelson who also won his 
match, to take best ball in the 
first foursome 4-3. 

The only Nichols point came at 
Che number three spot, where 
Fisher bested Fred Bergen 2-1. Jim 
Marchesslni playing number foui- 
won 4-3 however, and combined 
with Bergen to take the best ball 
one up. In the last foursome, Dan 
Emerson triumphed by a 3-2 score 
while Jack Held won easily 8-6, 
and the two took their best ball 


second on a base on balls and 
solid base hits by Barker, Dem- 
mer and Soggs. Again in the top 
half of the seventh Puller weak- 
ened slightly, allowing Spenser to 
steal home with the Third Car- 
dinal run. However, the seventh 
and eighth frames provided more 
than enough runs to allow Puffer 
to gain his first victory of the 
season and the team's first home 

Puffer Whiffs Five 
Bobby Coombs only comment 
was: — "Only wish we could put 
a few of these runs In the bank 
for the tough ones coming up." 
He was very pleased with the en- 
tire performance, especially with 
that of sophomore Puffer who al- 
lowed but one base on balls while 
striking out five. 

The Coombsmen journey to 
Springfield today where they meet 
Springfield College in the 16th 
contest of the present series. The 
Ephmen since the series opener 
in 1906 have taken eight of fifteen 
games from Springfieid, copping 
last year's contest 7-6. Saturday, 
May 12th, the Ephmen play host 
to Trinity College in the House- 
party tilt.

Billville 'Berkshire Biltmore' 
Current Feature Attraction; 
Show Begins with Dancing 

by Boris Jonnardze 

This year's big show, a musical 
extravaganza called "Spring 
Houseparty" or "The Berkshire 
BUtmore", will open with on "out- 
of-this-world" dance Friday night, 
continue through a "season In the 
sun" Saturday, and close. If not 
Sunday, sometime In the "Twen- 
tieth century" (with a compulsory 
chapel service), according to 
Broadway critics. All tickets have 
been sold out, except for a few 
bad seats returned to the box of- 

Although the plot is vaguely 
reminiscent of previous produc- 
tions, several new effects have 
been created by the producers, the 
Class of '52. The setting shifts 
from a gymnasium, to an outdoor 
scene with a mountainous back- 
drop, to a snake pit on Fraternity 

Advertised as "colossal", the 
drama rivals CeclUe B. DeMlUe's 
efforts, as the cast numbers near- 
ly 2000 "guys and dolls". Some 
who appear in the opening scene, 
however, affected by the e.soterlc 
"cocktail party(s)" theme of the 
play, do not return for the curtain 

Music by Larry Green 

The play is divided into three 
acts, each with a prologue In 
which the chai-acters drink var- 
ious symbolic libations. Act I be- 
gins at 9 p.m. in Lasell gymna- 
sium, and has musical accompani- 
ment by Larry Green and his or- 
chestra. In the middle of the act, 
a few talented WUliamstonites en- 
tertain the dancers. 

The light* fade .'owlj sn(' the 
curtain falls when "the moon is 

Act II opens at a tea (duly ap 
proved by a vote of the social 
units), Instead of at the customary 
picnics. An Imposing receiving line 
greets the guests. The rain pours. 
It has not yet been announcd 
whether this scene will occur in 
daylight or with "darkness at 

The producers then introduce 
an extraordinary effect by having 
several centers of action, one at a 
baseball game on Weston Field 
with Trinity College, another at a 
lacrosse match on Cole Field with 
Tufts, and still a third at tennis 
matches with Wesleyan. Several 
groups simply sit around asking, 
"Who has a can-opener?" 

Five House Dances 

After a quick costume change, 
the dreadful snake pit scene Is 
enacted to the accompaniment of 
orchestras at Psl U, Saint, Phi 
Qam, the Club, and Phi Delt. Al- 
though this is a panoramic scene 
shifting several times, the basic 
action is the same. 

I The curtain for Act III rises on 
B sparsely filled stage which grad- 
ually becomes more crowded. This 
act is more slowly paced than the 
other two, but its moral implica- 
tions are stronger. Instead of the 
usual musical comedy ending, the 
curtain falls slowly on a stage 
which has gradually emptied, to 
cathedral music. 

An effect resembling that used 
in "Hamlet" is achieved by the 
Play-wlthin-a-play toward the 
close of Acts I and II, called 
"Zhukov in the Streets." 

Immortal Dialogue 

Some immortal lines are sure to 
be remembered, such as the deeply 
poetic, "Have you ever seen the 
sun rise from Oreylock?" There 
Is real pathos in the heroine's 
words, "I wish I were at Derby 

To some spectators, the show 
will seem a farce, but to others, It 
will have tragic elements, espec- 
ially those taking the Medical Ad- 
missions all day. All will a- 
gree that the play has a fluid con- ,

effort to clarify the varying opin-

Dr. Bridges 

by Alexis Hornin 

Scheduled to appear as guest 
speaker in the Thompson Mem- 
orial Chapel tomorrow evening is 
Dr. Harry Renton Bridges, noted 
theologian and president of the 
International Longshoremen's and 
Warehousemen's Union. 

Born in Melbourne. Australia, 
on July 28, 1901, Dr. Bridges re- 
ceived his training at St. Bren- 
nan's Parochial School in Mel- 
bourne and at the Semlnai-y of 
Hard Knocks. His first religious 
affiliation in the U.S. was with 
the A.F. of L., but he soon became 
a convert to the Industrial Work- 
ers of the World and, by 1925, was 
a missionary for the International 
Longshoremen's Association. 
Deportation Attempts 

He joined the I.L.W.U. in 1937 
and soon reoi-ganized It along the 
proper ideological lines. Over the 
past fourteen years the bour- 
geouls U.S. government has be- 
come increasingly aware of his 
teachings, honoring him with a 
number of clumsy deportation at- 

Despite the recent and glorious 
revolution, the procedure at chapel 
will remain largely unchanged. 
According to People's Commissar 
Uncle Ben Fahrenheit, "Religion 
is the opiate of the people, but 
the Williams People's Democracy 
realizes the futility of trying to 
re-educate overnight a bourgeoisie 
deeply rooted in capitalistic modes 
of thought." 
To facilitate Dr. Bridges' appear- 
ance, workfen have for the past 
few days been busy tearing down 
the chapel pulpit, which will be 
replaced by a soap-box In time 
for tomorrow evening's sermon. As 
we go to press, the Job is not yet 
complete, since Dr. Bridges, flying 
in from the Coast last night, has 
been able to persuade these work- 
men to strike. 

A brilliant and outspoken leader. 
Dr. Bridges has written numerous 
pamphlets and leaflets and de- 
livered countless Inspirational ser- 
mons at street corners across the 
nation. He is at present on a 
leave of absence from his post 
at the Federal Penitentiary. Al- 
catraz. California. 

Leads Revolt 

Coinmy Hordes Smash 
Rubber Hose Squad 

by Chukov Langalov 

Williamstown, diehard citadel 
of capitalist reaction, entered upon 
the era of revolutionary liberation 
yesterday. A "people's front" coa- 
lition composed of students and 
townspeople, marching under the 
red banner of liberty, rose up to 
crush the power of the fascist 
lackeys of Wall Street who have 
held Spring Street in their Iron 

Organizing the "Glorious Revo- 
lution" was Comrade "Muscle- 
Mouth" Mierzejewski, legendary 
fighter against German imperial- 
ism under the slogan "Polandgo- 
pula!" Under his brilliant direction 
squads of determined students, 
battle-hardened on the training 
grounds of the Freshman Quad, 
quickly established martial law 
along the Street. 

In a suicidal attempt to suppress 
the valiant uprising. Police Chief 
Royal and his henchmen barreled 
up the Post Office, wielding rub- 
ber hoses and tear-gas bombs 
and loudly singing "The Battle 
Hymn of the Republic", but wei-e 
soon routed.

effort to escape certain Justice.

Dean Rabbits R. Bricks today 
released plans for Williams Col- 
lege's new program of Industrial 
cooperation. Under the directive, 
students will donate a small por- 
tion of their time each day to 
interesting work in local factories. 
Comrade Bricks revealed that at 
first no more than fourteen hours 
a day will be expected of the 
students smce the College does 
not wish to overemphasize this 
aspect of its curriculum. 

Commenting on this revolution- 
ary idea in education. Student 
Leader Hal Kahn '52 remarked 
"This is the greatest. Now we can 
meet the girls at Sprague Electric 
without paying Phelps a cent." 

Immediately following Dean 
Bricks' pronounclamento. Com- 
missar for Physical Culture Ed 
Bull-Ox guaranteed that fresh- 
man and sophomores would be 
given temporary P.T. credit for

Peaches and Leeches 

Our Bob, Comrade Halfacre, has at last succeeded to the position 
for which lie has worked many years. After endless years of toil 
in the dark cellar of Sage Hall, Our Bob, who became the guide antl 
counselor of Innumerable youths thrust into Williams College, ha.s 
attained the heights he so richly deserves. No longer must he 
trudge the long flights of stairs to the top-floor "John"; no longer 
must he cajole and coax recalcitrant P-ladies to protect the students' 
rights; no longer must he carry out the capitalistic schemes of the 
Buildings and Grounds Committee as delivered through their hench- 
man Bill BiTant. 

The WORKER repudiates its former anti-administration policy, 
promising that from now on it will adhere to administration views 
and denounce only alien bourgeois thought springing from the faculty 

and alumni. The WORKER will 

crusade for the following improve- 
ments we deem essential to prog- 

1) The discharge of Dean Rob 
art R.R. Brooks and the appoint' 
ment of Comrade Kelly to that 

2) the discharge of Dean Scott 
and the appointment of Peaches 
Lafave, newly elected president of 
the P-Liadles Union, to his posi- 

3 ) the conversion of the Thomp- 
son Memorial Chapel into an in- 
door hockey rink; 

4> the nationalization of Rud- 

5) the rehiring of Wiley Sexton 
and his promotion to directorship 
of the Stetson Library; 

6) the abolition of the no- women 
in-dormitories rule and the im- 
mediate dismissal ot the Dean's 
secret agent, Mr. Millis, the night 

Communists in the dorms. 

I'^nlhusiastic students mob local theater to see "Tile Life of Our 
',IX.'.',@')& Leader." (Space requirements necessitated abbreviation) 


Capitalists in tlip slrcet. 


7) the immediate execution of 
Whitney Stoddard's idea to cut 
down the elms on Main Street 
since they are anachronistic and 
representative of an out-dated era; 

8) the purge of those reaction- 
ary and bourgeois people on the 
campus to include John Comer, 
Irving Sirken, Shirley Piper, Mrs. 
Malioney, and Harry Hart, sr. and 

As our noble leader has express- 
ed it: "By cripes, boys, let me tell 
vou something; now that I'm In 
Baxter's shoes and he's in mine, 
I'm goin' to tell those boys in 
Washington a thing or two. Yes 
sirree. No fooling now, what this 
college needs is someone like me 
running the show, you wait and 

We've waited. Bob, and to the 
last man in P entry, we're behind 
I you.

Kri.-Sat: "The Life of Our Great, Wise, Intelligent, Honest, Impartial, 
Charitable, and God-like Leader." Filmed on location in the Kremhn, 
this brilliant biographical study stresses realism. Shots of the lavish 
dormitory facilities occupied by political prisoners are mingled with 
domestic scones such as the Pv -.nie'- passlnu out vodka to the 
workers on his new house. That this film is truly great can be .seen 
from the photo showing the mob .stormng the local state theater 
for the one-thousandth performance early last week. 
Friday and Saturday, it returns again by popular demand. It is, of 
course, not compulsory. Siberia is really quite pleasant in the spring; 
there is the never-to-be-forgotten smell of fresli snow in the air. 
Sun: (The Union of Socialist Soviet Republics Connubial Bliss Day) : 
"The Mountains and the Valley". A maguifiuenL and moving cinema 
about the life of a typical Russian peasant girl (see photo). Since 
filmed under the personal supervision of our Great Leader Stalin, the 
result was inexitable. The rumor that the film comes to an abrupt 
halt because of the condition of the leading lady has been offlcially 
DENIED by the Great Leader him.self, and is therefore false. The 
truth is that the ending is not abrupt, it is "flowing and tranquil and 
in complete harmony with the peaceful mood ot the state and our 
Magnificent Leader." iPravda, May 11) 

Comrade May Whitty is outstanding as the peasant girl, while 
Comrades Sydney Greenstreet and Boris Karlolf give lifelike imper- 
sonations of the American Bandits Truman and Acheson. Comrade 
Gary Cooper does his best in the role of our Benign Leader, but is 
not tall enough to truly Illustrate the rea
