woe Winter Carnival Features 
Varied Festivities For Weekend 
Of Entertainment, Merry-Making 



Tommy Tucker's Band, 
Jazz, Ski Competition 
Highlight Celebration 



Wednesday, Feb. 9 - Attempting 
to prove that Winter Carnivals 
are bigger and better than ever, 
the Williams Outing Club will 
again sponsor the Annual Winter 
Carnival this weekend. By far the 
biggest social attraction of the 
college calendar, the Carnival this 
year Is displaying everything from 
Olympic-calibre slcilng events to 
entertainment by famed musical 
aggregations. 

An indispensable ingredient of 
the Carnival is the veritable deluge 
of more than 400 representatives 
of feminine pulchritude from wo- 
men's colleges all over the country. 
The first tralnload will start the 
snowball rolling In Friday after- 
noon, and will be met at the 
station by the newly-formed fresh- 
man Dixieland band. 

Tommy Tucker Plays 

The first big event of the Car- 
nival will be the All-College Dance, 
to be held Friday night at 9 
o'clock in Baxter Hall. Music will 
be provided by Tommy Tucker and 
his "Sing for Your Supper" Or- 
chestra. Tucker has performed for 
audiences the country over, notable 
recent engagements being at the 
Hotel Astor In New York and the 
Copley Plaza in Boston. He has 
played on radio on the Kate Smith 
Show and the Arthur Murray 
Show. 

For intermission enjoyment one 
of the most reknowned singing 
rffrtijpij tr «bnu' byicinps.'; th** Billy 
Williams Quartette, will perform. 
Billy Williams was an outstand- 
ing star of the Charioteers for ten 
years, and left that group a few 
years ago to form his own quar- 
tet. 

Carnival Queen 

As a further highlight of the 
evening, a Carnival Queen will be 
elected and presented at the dance, 
complete with a royal court of 
princesses. Three competent mem- 
bers of the faculty will act as 
Judges, and nominations are to be 
made by six representatives chosen 
from each class. 

Ornamenting the campus will be 
the entries to the snow-sculpture 
contest; the winning sculpture 
will be chosen by a board of Judges 
consisting of Mr. Shaw, Mr. Powell, 
and Mr. Stoddard. The freshmen 
are expected to construct another 
giant figure to compete with the 
fraternities, and they hope It will 
rival last year's "Ephella," the 
Purple Cow. 

Skiing Events 

One of the main athletic at- 
tractions during Carnival is the 
annual competitive ski meet.

Library Offer* Fine 
Bookbinding Display 



Wednesday, Feb. B - An ex- 
hibition of twenty-five fine 
bookbindings by Arno Werner, 
master bookbinder of Plttsf ield, 
is being shown in the Chapln 
Library during the month of 
February . The handbound books 
show the skill and training of 
an experienced craftsman who 
is one of the few expert book- 
binders working in the United 
Slates today. The bindings dis- 
play a variety of hand tooled, 
plain and decorative styles. 

Mr. Werner began his ap- 
prenticeship at 16 in the book- 
binding studios of Ignatz Wie- 
meler in Leipzig. Wiemeler's 
fine bindings were internation- 
ally known and in 1935 were 
shown in a special exhibition 
at the Museum of Modern Art 
In New York. Werner came to 
the U. S. in 1925. but returned 
several times to Weimeler's 
studios In Leipzig for advance 
training.

Liberal Bequest Creates 
Four-year Scholarship

coming freshman next fall will 
have the benefit of a comprehen- 
sive $2000-maxlmum General Mo- 
tors Scholarship, Student Aid Di- 
rector Hank Flynt announced this

Recently launching a pioneer- 
ing $2-million program of four- 
year scholarships for 306 schools. 
General Motors has provided that 
one of the annual grants be es- 
tablished at Williams. "We will 
have a free hand in choosing the 
recipient of this award." Flynt 
pointed out. "and we will make the 
choice for outstanding academic 
ability, leadership qualities, and 
demonstrated need." The amount 
of the scholarship will depend 
largely on the assistance required 
by the student. 

Grant-In-Aid

ceive a yearly "grant-in-aid" from 
GM of between $500 and $800 to 
cover expenses not taken care of

bring to the fore outstanding 
young men who will make sub- 
stantial contributions to the se- 
curity and progress of our coun- 
try and the world." Mr. Flynt re- 
plied by emphasizing that, "We 
are most grateful to receive this 
scholarship here at Williams."

Alumni Fund Hits 
New High as '54 
Campaign Closes 

4500 Contributors Set 
Unprecedented Record; 
'10, '14 Cop Honors 



Wednesday, Feb. 9 - The 1954- 
55 Alumni Fund Drive which end- 
ed on January 31st was by far the 
most productive in history, re- 
ports Charles B. Hall '15, Secre- 
tary of Alumni. A record total of 
$194,498, received from over 4500 
contributors marks the fifth con- 
secutive year that the drive has 
gone over the top. With this year's 
goal of $150,000 left far behind. 
It Is probable that when the alum- 
ni meet during Homecoming 
Weekend (February 18-20) to set 
the 1955-56 quota they will raise 
their sights. 

Two classes shared In the glory 
for last year's record output. The 
class of 1914 won the Meredith 
Wood trophy given for the highest 
percentage of donors, with a 94.8% 
participation. Winner of the At- 
well Cup was the Class of 1910, 
which with a contribution of 
$10,343 exceeded all other classes 
in the amount donated. 

Fund has risen fast 

This year's record total con- 
tinues the rapid upward trend es- 
tablished In recent years by the 
Fund. Before the War the drive 
rarely netted more than $20,000 
annually or caused more than 
2000 donors to reach for then- 
wallets. The post-war era dawned 
brightly, with the 1946 total of 
$56,716 giving hints of things to 
come. 

The building and endowment 
fund drive held a monopoly during 
1948 and 1949. However the three 
years 1950-52 saw a rapid rise in 

Drive chairman Jay B. Angevine 
'11. Prom $61,685 in 1950 the fund 
passed the century mark in 1951. 
Webster Atwell '21 took the helm 
in 1953, and was chairman again 
this year. 

Helping to establish last year's 
new high was the Parents of A- 
lumni campaign, which went into 
full swing for the first time. Under 
the chairmanship of John Beard 
of Cleveland, this branch drive 
collected 472 gifts totalling $39,064 
from non-alumni parents of Wil- 
liams men in the classes of 1940- 
56.

dent of the College Council, a report from the Ad Hoc Committee 
on Deferred I-lushing, an addendum clarifying and coi reeting this 
report, a comment on the Ad floe Committee report by a Faculty 
Committee, the resolutions adopted by the Graduate Committee of 
Williams College Social Units, the flushing Report of the College

Ex-Red Lectures in North Adams 
About Soviet Designs on America 

btj Joe Albright 

Wednesday, Feb. 9 - On February 2, the last evening of the 
mid-semester break, Louis C. Budenz spoke in North Adams on 
Communism, which he termed the most serious threat to western 
society since the invasion of the Moslems in the eighth century. In 
dramatic, spell-binding tones, he lashed out at the many men and 
institutions in America which have winked at and ignored the Red 
threat. 

Budenz should know what he is talking about — he was himself 
a top man in the American Communist Party for ten years. During 
that decade, he was the managing editor of the Daily "Worker, 
which he called a legalized communications system between Mos- 
cow and the Soviet agents in this country. In this key role, he 
could get a real insight into the techniques of the commies. 
Converted to Communism 

Before his shift to communism in the mid-'30's, he had been a 
successful labor leader in St. Louis. When he became a Red, he 
renounced the saeriments of the Roman Catholic Church and ex- 
perienced a religious conversion to communism. In 1946, he wa.s 
reconverted to Catholicism, by the persuasion of Bishop Sheen. 

For the past 20 years, he said, America has been sliding towaid 
the pit of Communism. Yet her citizens have failed to wake up to 
the obvious danger. Budenz has set himself up as the one to arouse 
America into meeting the threat head on. He hints that the situation 
has become so critical that the steps we have to take may lead to 
war. 

Red Infiltration 

Tlie Kremlin is steadily bombarding the United States with a 
stream of propaganda. Not only does it operate through overtlv 
Red channels, but also it has control over many supposedly luibi- 
ased media of communications. He cited the New York Times and 
Tribune, the Saturday Revieiv of Literature, and the Columbia 
Broadcasting System as well-known orgaiLS that spread the party 
line. 

Budenz asserted that the Red Utopia is a classless, orderless, 
governmentless world. However, according to the Communist gods, 
Lenin and Marx, the only way to reach this ultimate phase is by 
going through an intermediate phase of world dictatorship by the 
Comnuinists. 

His conclusion was that the Reds cannot and will not rest until 
they attain world domination, or are defeated by America. The 
Soviet propaganda - mills have managed to convince mo.st of us 
that they really do favor peaceful coexistence. "What they really 
mean," insisted Budenz, 'is peaceless non-existence of the free 
world," 



ell. 

One of the first measures taken 
by the Board was the granting of 
a sum not to exceed $25,000 to 
complete certain social facilities 
In Baxter Hall. The Student Uni- 
on Committee and Professor An- 
tonio de Lahiguera will be pri- 
marily responsible for the recom- 
mendation of improvements. Most 
of the renovations are expected to 
take place in the Rathskellar and 
the meeting rooms. The Board also 
approved the suggestion of the 
Administration that the Faculty 
be requested to consider granting 
the freshmen a longer period for 
entertaining guests on certain 
weekends. 

Upholds Present Policy 

After a full discussion of the 
documents before them, the Board 
of Trustees adopted the following 
resolution; "The Board of Trustees 
has given careful study and con- 
sideration to recent reports, bal- 
lots and activities relating to a 
change In the period of fraternity 
rushing." 

"When the present policy was 
originally adopted by the Board 
after two and one halt years of 
study, it was recognized that the 
ueueiits 01 uie plan couiu be rea- 
lized only after an experience ex- 
tending over a period of years. 
The current college year is the 
first in which the full facilities 
provided tor the program have 
been available." 

'Experience gained thus far 
has Indicated several steps which 
may be taken toward a more ef- 
fective operation and these are 
being studied by the administra- 
tion." 

Calls For Support 

"After thorough discussion of all 
factors the Board believes that 
the basic plan should be carried 
forward without major changes." 

"Williams College depends upon 
the efforts and support of many 
Individuals; — students, faculty, 
administration, alumni, and trus- 
tees, and the viewpoints of all 
must be taken into consideration. 
It is Inevitable that from time to 
time differences of opinion will 
arise. All of us, however, are uni- 
ted In a single purpose; to main- 
tain and strengthen Williams Col- 
lege as an educational institution 
at the forefront of small liberal 
arts colleges. It Is upon this prin- 
ciple that all decisions must 
turn." As of yet the Trustees have 
not revealed their decision regard- 
ing the extension of the Stetson 
Library.

The Trustees' Decision 



AS I SEE IT 

by mil (Quillen 



After much debatiiif; and controversy which hx.sted throughout 
the first term, the <iuesti()ii of when rushing would be held was 
finally settled. In their meeting the Trustees of Williams College 
voted unanimously to maintain the ])resent system of sophomore 
rushing. Although uatmallv leaning toward diis plan because they 
instituted it in the fall of 1953. the Trustees, nevertheless, gave tin 
problem careful consideration. In addition to the ad live commit- 
tee's report, they also had before them the Graduate Committee's 
resolution, the Gargoyle plan, and a brief report from a few mem- 
bers of the faculty. 

With all this information at hand and with the best interests 
of the college as a whole at stake, the Trustees made their decision 
Their vote was not a temporary one, subject to revision in future 
years. They spent two years considering the present system before 
finally deciding lo institute it at Williams. Despite the obvious dis- 
satisfaction of the undergraduate bodv, the Trustees decided to 
continue their plan. There can be no doubt that this system will 
be in effect for many more years because the Trustees did not even 
set up a committee to again review the merits of delayed rushing. 

Improve Baxter Hall 

Though attacked from many sides and severely criticized in 
the RECORD and in College Council meetings. Garret Schenck, 
the chairman of the ad hoc committee and the leading ex|5onent of 
returning to freshinan rushing, did a good job. His plan for rushing 
during the first year at Williams was not adopted, but the contro- 
versy that was stirred up was not fruitless. Both the administration 
and the Trustees should now realize that the ]5resent system has 
many shortcomings and that the student body has been greatly 
disappointed. 

Since deferred rushing is apparently here to stay, we must try 
to make it as effective and enjoyable as possible. With the inoney 
appropriated by the Trustees, much can be done to inake Baxter 
Hall truly the center of college life. Already this year the game 
rooms have been enlarged, but the rathskellar should now be im 
proved. Booths, tables, and perhaps murals or some other wall dec 
oration would make the room much more inviting and would help 
solve the freshmen's problein of where to take dates on weekends 

Since the classes of '57 and '58 have proven themselves perfect- 
ly capable of handling their special weekend doriu hours, perhaps 
now a joint faculty-student committee might be able to make rec- 
omendations to the administration to expand their hours to include 
more weekends during the year. 

The Trustees' decision to maintain the present system of rush- 
ing was made because they felt it woidd be best for the college as 
a whole. The students now hope that this system which has been 
decided on, despite their wishes, will be improved. If the under- 
graduates will give deferred rushing a chance to work out its mis- 
takes and if the administration will, in the meantime, make every 
effort to improve those faults which have caused so much dissatis- 
faction, then the Trustees' hopes will indeed be fulfilled, and their 
decision may yet prove to be best for Williams. 



Williams men seem to rely more on movies lor tlieir mid-week 
and weekend entertaimnent tuan do the average college students 
ol eouteniporary tiays. The location that Kph Williams eliose in 
the Berkshire valley does not permit the typt' of week niglit dating 
that has become customary at larger universities and other colleges 
not so deep in the New England wiklerness. I raditioiially, tlu' only 
advantage that Amherst can offer to incoming freshmen that Wil- 
liams cannot match is a location midway between Smitli and Mount 
llolyoke. 

So the word "flick" has come to mean more in Williamstown 
than in most college eommimities. Flicks have even a f^reater signi- 
ficance in the cold winter season with Bemiingtoii out of session. 
Soon after supper almost every evening, there appear on Main 
Street mimerous shivering freslimen thumbing then' way to NA. 
At the same hour there is a nightly caravan leaving various bouses 
on campus heading towards Pittsfit'ld. 

And on a normal night there are a handful ol K])limeii who 
head lor Spring Street to visit Cal King's VVA1,DKN. This group 
has been dwindling in recent years. 1 lie exception to this trend 
seems to be on nigiits when C^al offers a good loreiirn lliek with 
Gina Lollobrigida in the leading role. But the crowded nights at 
tlie WALDEN have become few and far between in our aiitoniotlx c 
age. 

The trend away from Uie WALDEN to North .\danis and Pitts- 
field is a dangerous one if it is not checked in the near fntiu'e. It is 
not inconceivable that Williams' men and Williamstown resitlents 
will awake some dreary morning oidy to fiiul that the old ri-liahk' 
theater on Spring Street has shut its doors permanently. It is dif- 
ficult to imagine college without the WAI,D1<;N, the only social life 
that exists in this God's eoimtry of ours. 

The ])roblem is not that the WALDEN does not show gooil 
movies. Ihe shows offered by Cal King are a far above a\'erage 
group for any theater. The problem is that Cal cannot get the ])op- 
ular American flicks as quickly as his bigger eompetitois. By the 
time that some shows arrive at the WALDEN half of the college has 
already seen them. 

If students would make an effort to find out what flicks are 
coming to Williamstown in advance, they would be able tt) sa\e 
themsehes tra\el time to NA and Pittsfield as well as seeing a great 
majority ol the same movies. Besides the time factor, and thanks to 
Cal s effort to keep his ))rices low, gas inoney and a third of the ad- 
mission fei' can be saved. The advantages of waiting a week or two 
to see a inovie far outmimber the disadvantages. 

If Williams' men would make such an effort, it would bi- a fit- 
ting tribute to a civic-minded gentlenian who has always gone out 
of his way to bring Williamstown the finest nu)tii)n picture enter- 
taimnent. Cal King is the type of theater owner who alwavs accepts 
advice on what shows and short subjects he shonkl present. He has 
l)een more than generous to Williams' students and he de.serv es oar 
whole - hearted support. Here is a hope that students will fight 
against this one result of the progress ol the aiit()moti\e age. Ih'ie 
is a ho])e that we will see the WALDEN crowded even some night 
when Gina is not starring. 



Letter to the Editor 



In an article in the January 19tli issue of the HECJOHD, 1 feel 
my positi<m regarding the proposed Libertarian organization "to 
promote the tnu' principles of liberalism on eampns" was grossly 
inisrepreseuteil. Because I do iu)t find the A. D. A. answer wholly 
satisfactory and because I attended a meeting to discuss Libertarian 
\ lews, it should not be inferred that I am a leader in the Libertarian 
uioveinent nor that 1 believe the Libertarian answer is any more 
satisfactory as a whole than that of the A. D. A. Although the dis- 
tinctions I am herein making may seem trivial I felt a clarification 
of my position was advisable. 

Sincerely, 
Bob Clark *57

THE TREEHOUSE OF THE AUGUST MOON 

Spring is just around the corner, and with spring, aa always, 
will come tree-sitting contests. This I applaud. Tree-sitting is 
healthful and jolly and as American as apple pie. Also it keeps 
you oflF the streets. 

Tree-sitting is not, however, without its hazards, as you will 
presently see when I tell you the dread and chilling tale of 
Manuel Sigafoos and Ed Pancreas. 

Manuel and Ed, friends and room-mates, were walking one day 
past the folk music room in the School of Denti.stry and Fine 
Arts. Suddenly they stopped, for coming through the door of 
the folk music room was a clear and thrilling alto voice singing 
the lovely folk tune, / Strangled My Trne-Lnve with Her Own 
Yellmv Braids, and I'll Never Eat Her Sorghum Any More. 

When the last shimmering notes of the ballad had died away, 
Manuel and Ed rushed into the room, and there they thought 
their swelling hearts must burst asunder. For the singer was as 
beautiful as the song ! Fair as the morn she was, doe-eyed and 
curvilinear. 

"My name is Manuel Sigafoos," cried Manuel Sigafoos, "and 
I love you madly, wildly, tempestuously!" 

"My name is Ed Pancreas," cried Ed Pancreas, "and I love 
you more than Manuel Sigafoos." 

"My name is Ursula Thing," cried the girl, "and I've got 
a jim-dandy idea. Why don't you two have a contest, and I will 
go steady with the winner?" 

"What kind of contest?" cried Manuel and Ed. 

"A tree-sitting contest," cried Ur.sula Thing. "Natch!" 

"Done and done," cried Manuel and Ed, and they clambered 
up adjoining a.spens, taking with them the following necessaries : 
food, water, clothing, medicaments, bedding, reading matter, 
and — most essential of all — plenty of Philip Morris cigarettes. 

We who live on the ground, with all the attendant advan- 
tages, know how important Philip Morris cigarettes are. Think, 
then, how much more important they must be to the lonely tree 
dweller — how much more welcome their vintage tobaccos, how 
much more soothing their mild pure flavor, how much more 
comforting to know as one sits in leafy solitude that come wind 
or weather, come light or dark, Philip Morris will always remain 
the same dependable, reliable, flavorful friend. 

Well supplied with Philip Morris, our heroes began their contest 
— Manuel with good heart, Ed with evil cunning. The shocking 
fact is that Ed intended to win the contest with a Machiavellian 
ru.se. It seems that Ed, quite unbeknownst to Manuel, was one 
of three identical triplets. Each night while Manuel dozed on 
his bough, one of Ed's brothers - Fred or Jed - would sneak 
up the tree and replace him. Thus Ed was .spending only one-third 
as much time in the tree aa Manuel. "How can I lose?" said Ed 
with a crafty giggle to his brother Fred or Jed. 

But Ed had a surprise coming. For Manuel, though he did not 
know it himself, was a druid! He had been abandoned as an 
infant at the hut of a poor and humble woodcutter named 
Winthrop Mayhew Sigafoos, who had raised the child as his own. 
So when Manuel got into the tree, he found to his surprise that 
he'd never felt so at home and happy in his life, and he had 
absolutely no intention of ever leaving. 

After four or Ave years Ed and his brothers wearied of the 
contest and conceded. Ursula Thing came to Manuel's tree and 
called him to come down and pin her. He declined. Instead he 
asked her to join him in the tree. This she could not do, being 
subject to acromegaly (a morbid allergy to woodpeckers) so 
she ended up with Ed after all. 

Only she made a mistake - a very natural mistake. It was 
.led she ended up with, not Ed. 

Ed, heartbroken at being tricked by his own brother, took 
up metallurgy to forget. 

Crime does not pay. «MRt shnim.n. nss

Thursday, Feb. 3 - The Williams 
varsity hockey team concluded a 
home and home practice game 
series with Holy Cross tonight, 
overwhelming the visitors, 13-1. 
Although the losers showed them- 
selves to be greatly inexperienced, 
as this is the first year of hockey 
at Holy Cross, the Purple six im- 
pressed onlookers with its hustl- 
ing brand of play. Bob Leinbach 
led the scoring with three goals, 
while George Wells had two. 

In the first of the two games, 
played away at Worcester on Feb. 
1, the Purple came out on top by 
a 7-2 score. Doug Poole proved to 
be the outstanding man on the ice, 
accounting for three goals. Also 
scoring for Coach McCormick's 
team were Howie Patterson with 
two tallies and Bill Irwin and 
Dick Flood with one apiece. 

They travel to Amherst for a 
game with their traditional rivals 
on Thursday, February 10.

Varsity Five Stretches Skein to Eleven; 
Handily Defeats Dartmouth, Coast' Guard 



Ephs Beat Cadets 
In S8-66 Battle 



Moro, Wilson Lead 
Williams Starters 



By Dave Sims 

Saturday, Feb. 5 - Rolling to 
their eleventh straight victory 
without a defeat, the Williams 
basketball powerhouse literally 
ran away from a weak Coast 
Guaid five in Lasell Gym tonight. 
With only one man over six feet 
on their opponents' team, the Pur- 
ple cagers utilized their height and 
an effective fast break to swamp 
the smaller club 88-66. 

The outcome of the game was 
never seriously in question, and 
the Purple reserves were used 
freely throughout the rout. Al- 
though Coast Guard scored the 
first field goal, Tony Moro tied 
the score on a rebound, and three 
more Purple field goals and a 
free shot gave the home team a 
decisive 9-2 lead, which the Ephs 
never relinquished. 

Ephs Lead at Half 

Effective passing between Co- 
Captains Ron Wilson and Moro 
highlighted the first ten minutes 
of play, as an enthusiastic crowd 
responded once more to the heads- 
up play of the undefeated five. 
Coast Guard closed the gap to se- 
ven points with a little more than 
eight minutes left in the half, 
but this was the closest they ever 
came to taking the lead. Both 
teams were working out of a zone 
defense, and Coast Guard, unable 
to work to the inside, was erratic 
from the outside, and only scored 
eleven times from the floor in the 
first half. Williams enjoyed a 49- 
27 lead at half time. 

The second half followed the 
same pattern as had the first, 
with the only difference being 
that Coach Shaw emirtied his 
bench as the game progressed. 

The Purple led by 28 points 
when the first team was removed, 
and the reserves were able to hold 
on to most of the overwhelming 
lead. Tom White tallied three 
goals and Jim Symons two, to 
lead the second team late in the 
game. White, playing well all 
night, scored 14 points, and was 
tied for second high scorer with 
Wilson. Moro was once again high 
in the scoring column with eleven 
field goals and two free shots for 
24 points.

Chaff eemen Lose to Tigers, 6-3; 
Campbell Hands Kesel First Loss 

Saturday, Fel). 5 - The Williams varsity squash team enter- 
tained visiting Princeton University in the Lasell courts today and 
suffered its second defeat in five matches bv a 6-3 score. The con- 
test proved a good deal closer than the final score would indicate. 
ho\ve\'er, as Williams came close to winning several individual 
matches. But the \isitors presented the better balanced ti-ani. and 
the Purple found itself unable to win the more crucial matches. 

a Both George Kesel, Williams 

number one man, and Garrett 
Schenck, playing number nine a- 
gainst the Tigers were undefeated 
up to this match, but they suffer- 
ed their first defeats of the sea- 
son. Kesel lost in straight games 
to Roger Campbell, National In- 
tercollegiate Champion, 15-9, 15- 
6, 15-11. In an exciting contest 
Terry Evans of Princeton took 
the measure of Schenck by a IS- 
IS, 15-6, 9-15, 15-12 score. 
Quinn, Heppenstall, Barton Win 
Paul Quinn, Ned Heppenstall, 
and John Barton accounted for 
the Williams triumphs. Two of 
the three Eph victors won in 
straight games and all three put 
on Impressive showings. Playing 
number three, Quinn took his 
third match in a row since he re- 
covered from a hand injury, sweep- 
ing Doziar Gardner, 15-9, 17-16, 
15-12. Ned Heppenstall worked 
hard to win his match with Dan 
Gardiner, 15-5, 7-15, 17-16, 15-6. 
In other crucial matches Mark 
Cluett, number two for Williams, 
lost to Ted Rogers, 15-11, 16-17, 
15-7, 15-10, and Scott Wood, play- 
ing in the fourth slot for Coach 
Chaffee fell before Ken Webster. 
Williams' Dave Lindsay and John 
Wierdsma also met defeat. 



Saturday, Feb. 5 - Running in 
the Millrose Games at Madison 
Square Garden tonight. Coach 
Tony Plansky's thinclads placed 
second behind Boston University 
in the mile relay. The winning 
time posted by the Boston Uni- 
versity squad was 3:25.7. Com- 
peting in the mile relay along with 
Williams and B. U., were Colum- 
bia, lona, and CCNY. 

In copping second place, the 
Ephs were clocked at 3:26.4, seven- 
tenths of a second slower than the 
winning time. This was the best 
time turned in by the Purple, who 
had previously run a 3:29.9 mile 
in the Boston K. of C. Games and 
a 3:28 at the Boston Athletic As- 
sociation Games, both held at the 
Boston Gardens. 

Anchorman Bob Behr matched 
his Boston Gardens performance 
by posting another 49.5 second 
quarter mile. 



Hanover Visitors

Victory Brings Prestige 
To Purple Hoopsters; 
Wilson, Jensen Star 



By Stu Auerbach 

Saturday, Jan. 22 - Williams 
passed its big test on the road to- 
ward gaining national basketball 
prestige tonight as they defeated 
Dartmouth, winner of the Christ- 
mas New England Invitational 
Tournament and one of the few 
teams to defeat the University of 
Connecticut, 67-49, before a turn- 
away crowd of over 1200 here. 

"Doggie'' Julian, the colorful 
Dartmouth mentor, said late in 
the contest that "we played our 
poorest game", but it looked as if 
the Big Green visitors from Han- 
over just met a better team. Dart- 
mouth started out playing well as 
they had an 8-5 lead and were 
moving well. But their untried 
sophomores seemed to fold under 
the relentless pressure that the 
Ephmen poured on. 

Up For Game 

It was obvious that Williams was 
up for this game; however some 
of the excitement that had been 
going around the college seemed 
to bother the team. They looked 
nervous during the first few min- 
utes of play. It was not until they 
called a time out and had a chance 
to get calmed down by Coach Al 
Shaw that they began to play good 
ball. Then they quickly built up a 
15-8 lead. 

Williams' ability to drive under- 
neath was the key factor in this 
push. Both defenses were tight in 
the first minutes of play, but after 
the time out the Ephmen came out 
with the magic formula as they 
pierced the Indian's defense to 
score on easy Inside shots. Three 
of the four baskets made during 
this period were layups and the

Saturday, Feb. 5 - Today the 
Williams freshman teams con- 
tinued in their custom of beating 
almost everyone in sight. Both the 
hockey and basketball teams re- 
gistered triumphs against non- 
college opposition. The hockey 
team has copped its first four 
games with no difficulty, while 
the hoopsters have built up a 
skein of seven straight wins, after 
dropping their opener to Union. 

The great first line of Dave 
Cook, Richie Lombard, and Bob 
Keltic proved the deciding factor 
in the 8-0 romp over Lenox 
School's hockey team. Cook and 
Lombard each scored the hat 
trick, and Keltic helped out with 
three assists. The bruising, hard- 
checking defense play of Tom 
Penney and Ric DrlscoU was also 
notable. 

Play Control Hockey 

After Lombard opened the scor- 
ing at 7:37 of the first period, the 
final outcome was never in doubt. 
The purple outplayed their op- 
ponents throughout and controlled 
the puck to such an extent that 
starting goalie Denny Doyle and 
his third period substitute Jim 
Stevens were forced to make only 
sixteen saves between them. Steve 
Frost and Mickey Briggs finished 
off the scoring in the final period. 

The trosh five met the Troy 
Boy's Club and emerged with a 
dramatic 69-66 victory. Trailing 
through most of the game, the 
yearlings put on a strong surge in 
waning moments to eke out the 
win. 

Marv Weinstein was the spark- 
plug of the club and was high- 
scorer with 28 points. His com- 
bination of good drives and deadly 
accuracy from the outside proved 
unstoppable. Guard Dave Allan, 
in his first start, was the bulwark 
of the defense, and another new- 
comer, Ira Kowal did an excel- 
lent Job.

fourth was an inside Jump tihot. 

Jensen Sparkpluc 

Wally Jensen sparked the Eph 
team throughout the game with 
ills slick backcourt play. And Bob 
Buss' cool performance so annoy- 
ed Julian that he yelled "think 
you're quite a star, don't you Buss". 
Ron Wilson took care of the team's 
heavy rebounding along with Tony 
Moro, who played most of the se- 
cond half in the backcourt, keep- 
ing his guard, 6' 8" Jim Francis, 
away from the backboards. 

The Williams scoring was even- 
ly divided with four men hitting 
double figures. Wilson got 18, 
Buss 17, Jensen 16 and Moro 12. 
Buss also missed 10 fouls. High 
man for the visitors was substi- 
tute Larry Freier, who had 14 
points, ten on sets in the last 
half. He was the difference be- 
tween a complete rout after the 
Intermission. 

Slow Start 

The game started out slowly with 
both teams feeling each other out. 
Almost four minutes were gone be- 
fore Buss made the first field 
goal of the game. And the half- 
time score was 27-19. Williams 
didn't really open up the game 
until the beginning of the second 
half. They came back from their 
rest hotter than the music the 
Spring Street Stompers played 
during the intermission, building 
up a 15 point lead with ten min- 
utes to go. 

The largest ci'owd ever to pack 
the Lasell gym turned up for this 
game. When the doors were open- 
ed at six a line of 30 people was 
waiting in the frigid Berkshii-e air 
to see the game. By the time the 
preliminary game started at 6:30, 
the gym was comfortably filled 
and the doors were closed at 7:15. 
an hour before game time, when 
the fire limit was reached. This 
was a strictly partisan crowd, 
cheering every move the Ephmen 
made. When, in the second half, 
Williams opened up their 15 point 
bulge, the team was given a stand- 
ing ovation at a time-out.

Winter Carnival . . . 



Dartmouth Is defending champion 
against six very good college 
teams: Harvard, New Hampshire. 
University of Massachusetts, Am- 
herst, Yale, and Williams. 

The WOC is providing trans- 
portation to the various events. 
Buses will leave fiom Chaplii Hall 
on Saturday for the downhill at 
8:30, 9, and 9:30, and for the 
slalom at 12:30, 1, and 1:30; on 
Sunday the buses will leave at 12, 
12:30, and 1 for the jumping e- 
vents. 

Basketball, Swimming 

A basketball double-header will 
be held in the gymnasium starting 
at 6:30 when the freshman five 
will play the Dartmouth frosh, 
and the Eph varsity will compete 
with Vermont. The Williams Var- 
sity squad remains the only unde- 
feated college team in New Eng- 
land, and one of the two unbeaten 
teams in the nation. 

At 2:00 Saturday afternoon a 
talented Eph varsity swimming 
team must play the role of under- 
dog against a very strong Spring- 
field team, whose varsity boasts 
several potential Ail-Americans. 

Not to be outdone by the other 
major sports, a strong Eph hockey 
team will skate against Springfield 
at 2 p.m. Saturday, and the unde- 
feated freshman sextet squad will 
play Taft at 4, also on the arti- 
ficial rink. 

Jazz Concert 

With the introduction of the 
Spring Street Stompers last year, 
the jazz concert at houseparties 
and at Winter Carnival now seems 
to have become almost a tradi- 
tion. This year the Stompers will 
be fighting it out with their arch- 
rivals, the Tigertown Five, in Cha- 
pin Hall at 8:15 Saturday night. 

During intermission-time, three 
octets will display their talents. 
The "Taboos" from Bradford Ju- 
nior College, the "Peadquacs" 
from Phillip Exeter Academy, and 
the Williams octets will perform.

Fraternltleg 

In addition to the Stompers and 
the Tiger Town Five, Saturday 
activities at the fraternity houses 
will produce big name bands at 
their cocktail parties and dances. 
Lester Lanin will play for Kappa 
Alpha, Alpha Delta Phi, and Delta 
Upsilon. 

Ralph Stewart and his orchestra 
play Saturday night for Zeta Psi, 
Sigma Phi, and Phi Delta. Frank 
Murphy and his Tri-City Dixie- 
land Band are playing separate 
engagements for Psi Upsilon and 
Delta Kappa Epsllon. 

The freshmen have provided 
their own entertainment for Sat- 
urday night, with a record-dance 
in the Rttthskcllar. The dance will 
be from 10:00 to midnight; fresh- 
man dormitory hours have been 
extended once again to allow them 
to make the best of the festivities.

ruling, Sause declared that It v/ba 
the duty of the Executive Com- 
mittee to interpret the consti- 
tution. His decision was upheld by 
a 32-13 vote. Sause also answered 
the complaint concerning the "ri- 
gidity" of WMS rules by slating 
that the policy of the board calls 
for a "good station" and therefore 
Its laws must be enforced. 

Prior to the election of new of- 
ficers, Dean Lamson gave a short 
address stressing the need for the 
continuation of teamwork in the 
organization. He also praised the 
"professional standards" of WM3 
and hoped that the burdens of re- 
sponsibility would not be placed 
on the shoulders of the few but 
rather delegated to all the mem- 
bers of the organization. 

The new President, Vem Squires, 
is a member of Beta Theta PI and 
served as Photographic Editor of 
the RECORD and worked on the 
Gul. Brett Gulsche. the incoming 
Executive Program Director is co- 
manager of the basketball team.

College, Social Councils Support 
Reeves Committee, Encourage 
More Liberal Freshman Policy 

Monday, Feb. 7 - In a lonjj; and important joint meeting the 
College and Social Councils voted to recommend the Rushing Re- 
port of the C;ollege-Social Council Joint Rusiiing Committee, head- 
ed hy Ned Reeves '55, to the incoming councils, with some reserva- 
tions. The report favors changes in the present system intended to 
impose fewer restrictions ujion freslnnan-upperclass relations and 

to bring a more open attitude tO0 

ttie wliole problem. 



On the Committee In addition 
to Reeves were Pete Pelham '55, 
George Ramsey '55, Bob Savadove 
'55, Phil Wick '56, Frank Dengel 
'57, Dick Repp '57, Dee Gardner 
'57, and Jim Paterson '56. These 
members formed subcommittees on 
Quotas, Financial Report, Rushing 
Agreements and Regulations, For- 
mal Rushing Period, Total Oppor- 
tunity, and Time of Rushing, In 
an attempt to remedy the rushing 
situation here. 

Rushing Agreements and 
Regulations 

On the difficult problem of 
freshman-upperclass relations the 
Reeves Report recommended that 
"freshmen be allowed in upperclass 
dorms" and vice versa and rede- 
fined "Illegal rushing" as "talk 
relating to the freshman's status 
In rushing as concerns (a» the 
house to a freshman or (b) a 
freshman to the house". 

The councils accepted the dorm 
proposals, but redefined illegal 
rushing as "talk relating to any 
freshman's status in rushing as 
concerns (a) any house to a fresh- 
man or (b) a freshman to any 
house ". If these proposals are ap- 
proved by the new councils, it will 
allow any fraternity member to 
talk about any house but will not 
allow him to tell the rushee what 
his chances are in any house. 

Quotas and Total Rushing 

Much lively discussion was en- 
gendered concerning the Commit- 
tee's somewhat conflicting suggest- 
ions on total rushing and quotas. 
While urging a quota reduction of 
an average of two per house to 
avoid concentration in a few 
houses, the Committee also re- 
commended a better "psychologi- 
cal conditioning" of fraternity 
men to further total rushing. Sens- 
ing a conflict here, the College 
Council opposed the quota plans 
8-5, with the SC favoring it 8-6. 

To solve the dilemma, the coun- 
cils voted unanimously to give 
more study to a plan recommended 
by Rick Smith '55, and now in 
successful operation at Wesleyan. 
Under this system rushees who are 
not pledged are Invited to houses 
as "eating club members" for a 
month or more, almost all being 
pledged by the end of their junior 
years. The Council:, also discussed 
penalties for violations and fa- 
vored a financial report to be is- 
sued by each house. 

Dean Robert C. L. Scott dis- 
cussed some administration poli- 
cies concerning college weekends. 
No parties will be tolerated in 
competition with the All-College 
Dance. Parties may be held on an 
informal subscription basis or if 
the dance Is financially supported 
by the house holding the concur- 
rent party. In addition, he said 
that in the future the banding to- 
gether of three houses would not 
be permitted unless absolutely fi- 
nancially necessary. 

Class Elections 

After the Joint meeting the Col- 
lege Council held a short discuss- 
ion. Bill Shaw '55, Chairman of 
the Rules and Nominations Com- 
mittee, gave nominating petitions 
to those who wanted them, and 
stressed the importance of seeing 
him or Phil Wick '55, Pete Pelham 
'55, Dick Repp '57, or Bill Jenks 
'56 to get petitions Into circula- 
tion. 

The petitions for class officers 
must have 40 signatures from the 
electing class and must be given 
to the Committee by 12 noon Mon- 
day, February 14. The first signa- 
ture must be that of the person 
distributing the petition, and no 
person may sign more than three 
petitions. Elections will be held on 
Thursday, February 17, In Baxter 
Hall. 



Hall Urges Fight 
Against Doctrines 
Of "Hate Groups" 



Speaker Blasts Racists, 
Undemocratic Facists, 
Extreme Nationalists 



Saturday, Feb. 12 - Gordon D. 
Hall, a professional tighter of 
"hate groups," spoke on "Ameri- 
can Rightest Groups — Racist 
and Otherwise" Tuesday night in 
Jesup Hall. The speaker, sponsored 
by the Williams Lecture Commit- 
tee, was introduced by Eric Gus- 
tafson, '55. 

Since he first became aware of 
the "hate group" problem in 1945, 
Mr. Hall has conducted a one-man 
investigation of this undemocratic 
phenomena. For four years, he was 
a close associate of Gerald L. K. 
Smith and other leaders of the 
"hate groups". At the same time, 
he was devoting the majority of 
his time and income to fighting 
these groups and the men behind 
them. 

Hate Group Distinction 

In his talk, Mr. Hall made a 
careful distinction between what 
he termed "extreme nationalist" 
organizations, and those which 
follow distinctly fascist programs. 
These former groups, such as the 
"United States Day" group headed 
by Robert Lefevbre and the "For 
America" group headed by Gen- 
eral Robert E. Wood, do not preach 
race hatred as a part of their pro- 
gram. They are anti-UN and 
strongly isolationist and seem to 
represent an extreme form of such 
groups as Charles A. Lindberg's 
"America First" organization. A- 
mong the heads of these organiza- 
tions were mentioned such men 
as General Mark Clark and Gener- 
al Claire Lee Chenault. 

Mr. Hall considers such or- 
ganizations as the "National Eco- 
nomic Council" headed by Mer- 
wln K. Hart, the "American Flag" 
group, and Geiald Smith's "Cross 
and the Flag" much more dan- 
gerous than the nationalist groups. 
These organizations are charac- 
terized by strong anti-Semite and 
anti-Negro feelings. In concluding 
his speech, Mr. Hall said, "We 
should not worry about these peo- 
ple engulfing us, but should learn 
to laugh at them." He seriously 
contested undemocratic suppres- 
sion of civil liberties as the an- 
swer to this threat. 



Ephs Snow Girls; Weather Fails 




Former Eph Grid Star Receives 
Plaudits For Dramatic Jet Battle 



Saturday, Feb. 12 - "The flying is terrific and the whole gang 
is the best I ever hoped to be with. I hate to leave my present outfit 
but the attraction in Florida is too terrific." 

These were the words of Lt. (Charles E. Salmon '52 in a lettei' 
to his brother, Fred D. Salmon Jr., after shooting down a cannon- 
firing Rn.ssian-built MIG 15 over the Yellow Sea. Salmon and Capt. 
George F. Williams of Austin, Texas, were the two American fightei 
)5ilots who received world-wide attention after destroying a ]5air of 
MlGs last Saturday in their F86 Sal)rejets. 

Q No Warning 

Both pilots in a press confer- 
ence told of a dramatic five min- 
ute battle with eight MIGs who 
jumped their patrol of 12 jets 
and a RB45 reconnaissance plane. 
The fight erupted 10 miles off the 
North Korean coast and 40 miles 
southwest of Pyongyang, capital 
of Communist North Korea. Ac- 
cording to Salmon, the MIGs came 
from above and behind without 
warning and started firing at the 
reconnaissance plane. A member 
of the Air Force ROTO at Wil- 
liams, Salmon fired five or six 
times and saw the craft smoke, 
burst into flames and slip off 
toward the sea.

Smith Deals Blow 
To 'Mountain Day' 

Women Now Prefer 
Beauties Of Nature 



Saturday, Feb. 12 - This week 
loyal Williams men observed with 
misty but indignant eyes the down- 
fall and ultimate demise of a fine 
old Williams tradition. Smith's 
"Mountain Day". In a tastefully 
unostentatious place on the front 
page, the Smith Sophian recorded 
that the House of Representatives 
voted to "return Mountain Day 
to its original form, by abolishing 
visits to men's colleges", by a vote 
of 58 to 26. The article notes that 
"The Student Body sat in 'an ex- 
tended and deliberative discus- 
sion' over the measure." This is 
at least an optimistic sign. 
Positive Program 

The Sophian states that "The 
Student Assembly as a whole was 
strongly unwilling to abolish 
Mountain Day completely", and 
that "The Student Council has 
accepted the responsibility for su- 
pervising and enacting a positive 
program of activities on Mountain 
Day, such as hikes." 

Although Smith has voted to 
return Mountain Day to "Its ori- 
ginal form", which seems to im- 
ply some activity involving a 
mountain, no adequate provision 
has been made by the Student 
Council to secure a suitable 
mountain for the purpose. An ob- 
vious answer to this problem would 
be supplied by a half-hearted look 
at any topographical map. Many 
suitable mountains are located In 
the immediate vicinity of Wil- 
liams town. 




All nominations for class officers must be signed and in the 
hands of the College Council Rules and Nominations Committee 
by noon Monday, Febniary 14, in order to be valid. Class elections 
will be held Tliursday, February 17. 

Mr. William Cole acted as moderator at the 0|.eni.ig session of 
a religious conference February 6 at Mt. Holyoke. Tlie Williams 
Cha|)lain spoke briefly on the theme "More Than Survival" and 
introduced the principal speaker, Mr. James Martin of Amherst. 
Mr. Cole will return to conduct next Tuesday's Chapel service at 
Mt. Holyoke. 

Rev. Cole will be the speaker at the Thompson Memorial Cha- 
pel this Sunday morning at 11 o'clock. Winter Carnival guests are 
invited to attend. The Chaplain's talk will be concerned with "This 
Business of Being Good." 

WCC members have begun a campaign to obtain used text- 
books for students in Viet Nam. The organization has placed cartons 
in fraternity houses and the Student Union for the collection of any 
used books which students might wish to donate. 



Phi Sig, Phi Delt, 
Delta Psi Choose 
Frate rnal Of ficers 

Presidents are Crosley, 
Saulnier, Gardner As 
Officers Start Term 



Saturday, Feb. 12 - Three ad- 
ditional fraternities, Phi Sig, Phi 
Delt, and Saint Anthony HaB 
have announced the election of 
their officers for the coming col- 
lege year, 1955-56. This brings to 
eight the number of houses that 
have completed their selections. 
The remaining seven are expected 
to follow suit shortly. 

Tuesday evening, the Phi Slgs 
picked Mark Saulnier '56 to be 
their president. Saulnier was pre- 
viously the secretary of the house 
while also a participant In WOC 
and WCC activities. Supporting 
him will be Owen Coe '56, vice 
president, Frank Panilaitis '56. 
treasurer, and Gerry Bemis '57, 
secretary. 

Lewis Crosley '56 was instated 
as president by the Phi Delts on 
Wednesday evening. Known prin- 
cipally for his effective manage- 
ment of the Williams Spring Street 
Stompers, he will be assisted by 
Red Bowes '56, vice president. Bob 
Logan '66, treasurer, and John 
Reeves '66, secretary. Reeves is a 
Junior advisor and also treasurer 
of the Community Chest for 1954- 
55. 

Thursday evening at Saint An- 
thony Hall, Kirt Gardner '56 was 
selected to take over the position 
of president. Besides presently be- 
ing a junior advisor, Gardner has 
been a representative of the Class 
of 1956 on the College Council. He 
was also secretary-treasurer of 
his class in his freshman and so- 
phomore years. The only other 
elected position announced by the 
Saints was that of treasurer. Ed 
Amidon '56 was chosen for it. 



Chapin Becomes Carnegie Tonight 
As Stompers, Tigertown Five Play 

Friday, Feb. 11 - Tiic first signs of the Outing Club's annual 
Winter Carnival began a few days ago, when visions of girls and 
li<|nid refreshments danced in the heads of many starved students 
tucked in their beds. Now the \ isions are here, and their time-hon- 
ored presence is beginning to give warmth to the Berkshire tundra. 
Unlortiinately, the absence of snow necessitates the canceling of the 

^Oski events; so couples will have to 

find other means of amusement. 



Air Force Shifts 
AFROTC Cadre 



Huether to Assume 
Command of Wing 

Wednesday, Feb. 9 - A change 
has been announced in the Air 
Force Reserve Officers Training 
Corps Cadre. Clyde W. Huether, 
assistant professor of Air Science 
since September 1952, has been 
promoted to Major and will as- 
sume command of the college unit 
this June. 

Huether will succeed Lt. Col. 
John C. Lawrence, who has been 
in charge of the local wing since 
1951. When he completes his four- 
year tour of duty here in June, 
Lawrence expects to be re-assign- 
ed overseas. 

Attended Johns Hopkins 

Following graduation from Boys' 
Latin School in Baltimore, Md., in 
1938, Huether had completed three 
years at Johns Hopkins University 
when the war interrupted his stu- 
dies. Serving in the Air Force 
from 1942 through '46, he flew 81 
combat missions in the Mediter- 
ranean Theater in B-26 Bombers. 

Heuther obtained his Masters 
degree in Education at Johns Hop- 
kins in 1950. In addition, the ma- 
jor served as a cross-country, track 
and basketball coach during that 
time. 

Served 14 years 

Col. Lawrence was formerly a 
metallurgist with the Carnegie- 
Illinois Steel Company. He receiv- 
ed his B. S. from Illinois Universi- 
ty. 

In addition to being stationed at 
Washington, Panama, Texas' Kel- 
ley Field and Williams during his 
career, Lawrence also has served 
as 13th Air Force Deputy Chief of 
Staff in the South Pacific during 
the war. He has earned the Legion 
of Merit and the Commendation 
Ribbon Medal with oak leaf clus- 
ter. 



College Loosens 

Dormitory Rules 



Hours to Remain Same 
For Winter Carnival 



Saturday, Feb. 12 - At a meet- 
ing of the Fi-eshman Social Coun- 
cil Monday night. Chairman Jim 
Edgar, '56, reported that the Ad- 
ministration has accepted one of 
the two Freshman proposals on 
Houseparty rules. 

During Winter Carnival Week- 
end, the restrictions against having 
dates in fourth floor rooms of 
freshman dormitories have been 
relaxed. All studies will be placed 
under the similar regulations with 
respect to dates, and students who 
do not have a study will be allow- 
ed to use their rooms to entertain 
their dates. 

Under the new regulations, the 
college has not granted the liberal 
hours which the Freshman Coun- 
cil recommended earlier. The hours 
when dates will be permitted in 
the Freshman dormitories are 
from 1 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Fri- 
day, from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on 
Saturday, and from midnight un- 
til 2 a.m.. and 10 a.m. until 6:30 
p.m. on Sunday. 



Officially it all begins with a 
bang this afternoon, as a noisy 
group of makeshift musicians 
greet the anxious load of feminin- 
ity due to arrive on the trains. All 
through the day hundreds of other 
students can be seen meeting their 
young ladies in quieter fashion 
and, in the usual tradition, a few 
will probably not be met at all. 

Date Skating 

At 7:30 tonight hordes will des- 
cend upon the hockey rink, the 
scene of much unusual activity 
over the course of the year. Beau- 
tiful music of all varieties, and 
much-needed shots of hot cocoa 
will accompany the screams and 
spills of those hardy enough to 
give it a try. 

The big attraction of the night 
is the All-College Dance, from 
9:00 to 1:00, in Baxter Hall. Help- 
ing stumbling couples will be the 
fine dance music of Tommy Tuck- 
er's band, star recorders on the 
Columbia label, and the Billy Wil- 
liams Quartet, who became famous 
on the Show of Shows. 

Carnival Queen Contest 

While dancing rages, twenty- 
four unnoticed connoisseurs of fe- 
male charm will be lurking quietly 
around the floor. Six from each 
class, they are the lucky Ephs de- 
signated to choose candidates for 
the Carnival Queen judging, which 
will be held in the upperclass 
lounge. Five suave, worldly, and 
keen observers: Mr. John O'Neill, 
Bernard Lyman, Roy Lamson, 
Frank Thoms, and David Bryant 
will then select an outstanding 
specimen and present her at in- 
termission time. Local merchants 
will donate prizes to the curva- 
ceous winner. Rumor has it that 
the contest is to be clean, and 
with no strings attached. 

Athletics 

Saturday afternoon and night 
are filled with athletic events. At 
2:00 the Ephmen will engage 
Springfield in hockey and swim- 
ming, while wrestling Coast 
Guard, and at 4:00 the strong frosh 
pucksters will face Taft School. 

A double-header awaits basket- 
ball enthusiasts in the Lasell Gym. 
After the frosh contest against a 
strong Dartmouth squad, Coach 
Al's (luintet will seek its thirteenth 
against the Green from Vermont, 
starting at 8:45 in order to give 
jazz enthusiasts a chance. VIPs 
had better arrive early. 

Jazz Concert 

While the varsity five races a- 
round, much the same sort of ac- 
tion will be taking place in Chapin 
Hall, beginning at 7:45, as the Ti- 
gertown Five, led by smooth Stan 
Rubin, re-enacts Carnegie Hall 
with the Spring Street Stompers. 
Fresh from their great success on 
Arthur Godfrey's shows, the Stom- 
pers will attempt to outdo Prince- 
ton's combo, which has played In 
Bermuda and in Europe. At inter- 
mission the beautiful "Taboos"! 
from Bradford and the Williams 
octet will sing to those not mangl- 
ed by the mob. 

Meanwhile the usual run of fra- 
ternity cocktail parties and dances 
will see many couples quietly fad- 
ing out of the picture. The Kaps, 
ADs, and the DUs will be throwing 
them down at the AD house, and 
will dance to the music of Lester 
Lanin at the KA house Saturday 
night. Playing at the Saint House 
for the Saints and Chi Psis at the 
cocktail party will be the Tiger- 
town Five, with the dance at the 
Chi Psi House that night.

AN UNWISE CHOICE 



Tbe adiniui.stration'.s announcement that no fraternity ])artic.s 
will be allowed durins; the hours of the college dance on Eritla\' 
e\eiiing came as a u;reat surprise to most vmdergraduates and at 
first glance seems most arbitrary and unfair. Unquestionably this 
danc:e is an all-college affair and as such deser\es the snp])oit of the 
entire student body, but you cannot force this support any more 
than vou can legislate school spirit or attendance at athletic contests. 

The official college calendar recognizes the three houseparties 
as being e\eiits that involve the whole campus, because on these 
weekends Saturday classes are canceled. Admittedly, if the one 
function that is open to all the students, namely the dance, is no 
longer sii|)ported, then, as was pointed out at the College Council 
the facidty might consider houseparty as merely organized frater- 
nity jiarties and, therefore, reinstate Saturday classes. Apparentlv 
the only remaining vestige of the idea that house]5arty is a college 
finiction is the Friday night dance, and if it were to die out, then 
tbe administration might well decide to make house])arty merely a 
one-day affair, or so it was iinjilied at the CC meeting. 

While we do not agree with those who recognize no obligation 
of the fraternities to suiniort this college dance, the RECORD 
board does feel that the administration has not made a wise choice 
in seeking a solution. The major problem, if houses try to contract 
out ot the fraternity ta.\ for the dance, is one of finances; the organ 
ization running liouse|5arty must ha\e some idea of how many will 
attend and how much money can be counted on to pay for enter- 
tainment. 

There is an obvious solution which would certainly satisfy the 
fraternities wanting to hold parties in conjimction with the dance 
as well as provide the dance committee with a large enough smn 
to run the dance. Permit all those houses who contract to sti]iport 
the dance to also hold ]iarties. Since Ba.xter Hall is too small for all 
students and dates to dance at the same time, this simple solution 
would alleviate the congestion by providing additional entertain- 
ment, would ensure sujiport of the dance, and also let tbe fraterin- 
ties have their parties, though usually few are held. This plan 
achieves the same aims that the administration's ])lan works for, 
but also it tries to please the undergraduati's without merely issuing 
an arbitrary decree. 

George Rudnick Inc. Faces Fight 
For Survival With Local Machines 

hij Mel Scaiis '57 

Saturday, Feb. 12 - There is an obvious rumbling throughout 
the Berkshires these days. It has long been suspected that this noise 
emanated from the Williams campus, but until recently no satisfac- 
tory |)roof had been forwarded. Through intensive in\ estigation of 
the facts it has been discovered that this strange sound comes froin 
the swirling of clothes in the washing inachines in some fraternity 
houses. 

The houses that are conspiring to put George Rudnick out of 
business are Delta Upsilon, Phi Delta, Beta Theta Pi, DKE, Psi Un- 
silon, Kappa Alpha, Phi Gamina Delta, Delta Phi and Saint Anth- 
ony Hall. 

Some houses rent their machines and dryer, while a few own 
theirs outright. However, the fact reinains that no matter whether 
the fraternity owns or rents its machine, members maintain that 
they make phenomenal savings on their laundry bills. There have 
been quite a few ca.ses of wool socks shrinking live or six sizes and 
the dye in shirts running and coloring the whole load, but it is hoyi- 
ed this will be straightened out with experience. 

The ainateur lauuderers have also taken their hand at ironing 
shirts. With an iron and ironing board on hand there is no need to 
.send anything to Uudnicks, and the saving is comjilete. Naturally 
certain gentlemen aie a little more adroit than some of their broth- 
ers, ancl these have been engaged in showing their less talented 
friends the rudiments of ironing. Except for a few shirts that were 
so badly scorched they could not be worn, the results have been 
satisfactory. 

Khaki pants have also been getting the ironer's attention, for 
when they come out of the washer and dryer, they are too wrinkled 
to wear. It is commonly understood that someone missed the mark 
when a student walks down Spring Street with his erea.se on the 
side ratliJ'r than in the front. 

The meehanies of the washing machine business are usually 
that the house buys the machine outright and charges the men a flat 
rate for the use of the inachine for the whole year. For instance at 
DU. where a new washer and drver were purchased this year, a 
charge of fi\ e dollars was made against each member for each year 
that he would use the equipinent. 

Another alternative is to rent the machines, as do the Betas and 
DKE's. In this case the members put in a quarter or so to have their 
clothes washed and dried. This eliminates the large initial invest- 
ment, but in the end the house does not own the machine into 
which it has put so much money.

"Virtiw is its uwii reward" 

Virtue is being redeemed and righteousness proclaimed on the 
American campus. Recent weeks have brought eiicoiuaging devel- 
opments in the constant battle against tlie lorces of cornipiion anil 
vice among the shident population. Creeping Baeehanalianism has 
replacetl MetAirthyisni and bridge as the primary threat to scholar- 
ship and the American educator is fighting back. 

By gosh, the serious challenge to American ycmth in the guise 
of sex and alchohol is being suppressed on every Iront. Tlie young 
women at Smith College have realized tlie moral deterioratum in- 
herent in \ isiting men's colleges and are back on (he right road. Tlie 
traditional Moimtain Day expeditions are being replaced l)y nature 
hikes which will not endanger the moral fiber ol tne Nortliainpton 
students. 

A veritable voice in the wilderness is President ,41vin D. "Duke 
Chandler of the College of William and Mary. Tlie W & M version 
of "Come Fill Your Glasses Up" has been toiever stilU'd on the 
Southern campus with tbe banning of alehoholic beverages. This 
great forward stride against the demon rum has been I'nthusiasti- 
cally received by the students who admire the forthright action of 
the college administrator. 

Here in Williamstown, the situation is not so bright. A deter- 
mined undergraduate minority periodically iiisi.sts on overflowing 
our pure and unsullied mountain xale with hordes ol members ot 
the opposite sex and, e\eu worse, bottled beverages. The sons of 
Eph must a.ssert themselves against this insidious situation. 



Letter to the Editor 



February S, 1955 
To tlie Editor of tire RECORD: 

Is your houseparty date coming from Saturday morning to 
Saturday night'r' Tell her to meet you 'under the clock" at tbe Stu- 
ilent Union. I'he admimstration might not approxc otherwise. 

The Dean aiinoiiiwcd h) the so-calletl 'student " council go\- 
ernment this week that organized parties in the houses conflicting 
with tbe College Dance on Friday nights of houseparty weekends 
were outlawed. This rash command, ilenying even llii' slightest ves- 
tige ot student control of their own social affairs, is not only an in- 
sult to tlie officers trying to carry on a representative college go\- 
eriimeiit, hut denies to the entire enrolhiient the right to order its 
own social affairs. .\iid this is not going overboard. Let's look at the 
facts. 

Four years ago, with the final exodus of the war veterans who 
were men enough to stand up for their rights, the administration be- 
gan its crusade by lowering curfews in the houses. The list ot iiiipo- 
sitions ha.s grown: no Sunday gatherings, a yearly limit ol parties, 
e\eu an expressed limit of refreshments. .Viid where are these laws 
to he exercised':' In tin' once indeijcndent fraternities! 

These regulations ha\ e been accepted, albeit involuntarily, hut 
the latest decree is disgraceful. When the Dean can walk into the 
Council Council meeting, define fraternity social |)olicy, and then 
refuse to even |xxy attention to any discussion, which he dkl, Wil- 
liams has come to a sorry state. By denying Friday night parties, the 
administration is attem|)tiiig to compel the student Ixidy to attend 
the College Dance. But who wants to go to li:ixter llall where 
tliere is not e\en room to shilt position, let alone dance'r' Even more 
pertinent, houseparties are for the |)leasiire of the students, and if 
it is not our pleasure to go, cii inax.sv. to the dance, why should we 
be iuflueuced? Nobody sbould be told bow to have a good time. 

Another startling upshot of the Dean's appearance at the Col- 
lege Council was his a\owal that the college trnsti'cs were not 
aware that there were no chaperoncs during lioiise)jarties. II the 
administration has this little knowledge of tbe Iraternitv parties 
(there have not been chaperones h)r fifteen years), what right do 
they have to not only influence and suggest, hut absolutely com- 
mand the policy of the inde|X'udeiit social units':' 

I came to Williams to grow. 1 came to the Williams my lather 
described to me, where free thinking and ]iersoiial responsihilitv 
were college objectives for every undergraduate. Mv lather pavs 
good money for this. But instead of growing I find decisions made 
for me, and not always correctly. The last few years have marked 
:Ui incredible switch Irom student governnient, at least in social af- 
fairs, to a denial of this by an administration that puts the forced 
use of Baxter Hall behire the betterment of Williams students 
dirough helping them gain maturity. This I believe. 

Fraternities .should liave been disbanded long ago if they were 

in evil influence. .'Ml that we ask is a consideration of the good in 

these social units as social units. Or will the next step be to prohibit 

rgauized fraternity parties on Saturdays of houseparty weekends'^ 

Sincerely, 

Jim Syinons '56 



Students of Isolated Berkshire 
School Condemn Houseparties; 
Protest Fails to Gain Support 

by Arne Carlson '57 

"We don't approve of houseparties. We leel they are degrading. 
They are disorganizing to the things that we really came to collegi. 
for; the only kind of intelleetual pursuit they olfer is a study of 
lininan anatomy in braille. The more we see ol houseparties in gen- 
eral, the more we begin to think that Frend was right. To undergo 
three days of frivolity, physical fatigue and iu\'oluutary insomniii 
to us seems absurd. .Xnd for what reason other than to engage in :i 
series of rhythmical contortions that lead the deeper thinkers of w; 
to tloubt if we really are so far removed from our common ancestor, 
the anthropoid ape." 

The above resolution was passed in 1821 by .some puritan oi 
ganizatioii known as the "Aiiti-lntempeienee Union". Fortunately, 
tliis attitude never gainetl niomentum bi'cause throughout the years 
most students realized that tliev tlid not come to college for know

ledge. .\ dioroiigli historical analysis ol houseparties seems to reveal 
thai liillv Hose's hivorite adage. "Wine, Women iuid Song " has jire-

The exact date ol the origin ol houseparties has never been 
recorded. Contrary to niinor, it was not loinided by a grou|) of fac- 
ulty bright lights. The truth is that the lirst Bacehanalian festival 
was held in tbe early p:irt of the U)lh ceiitur\' when tlu' Baecliana- 
liaii Society had its initial meeting in the Bach room ol the Kich- 
iiKiiiil llolil. .At that lime there were three sophomores, two juniors 
and one senior (the oilier was on probation ). Since this was strictly 
an iipperelass afiair. the four freshmen were not permitted to at- 
tend. I'nhirtunateK-, this did not end well because the lierce Mo- 
hawk Indians swooped down on the unsuspecting celebrants and 
carrietl off the loiie female guest. The Mohawk Trail was |)aved in 
the pursuit that followed. 

Hut as the w<'steni inarch of Inuiiauitv continued, a more civi- 
lized influence prevailed. Thus one hiuidretl years later, the iron 
horse on the Boston & Maine iirrived three hours late laden with a

THE WILLIAMS RECORD, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 1955 



Ephs Ecstatic As 573 Lovelies Descend On Billvilie 



Kaps Head Fraternities With 39; 
Smith, Skidmore Lead Invaders 

Saturday, Feb. 12 - Yesterday, and even tlie beginning of last 
week, began ii process wliitii will culiiiiimte sometime today. When 
this is completed, Williamstown's po])ulatioii will have increased by 
573 (give or take a few) girls, and sundry visiting firemen. This 
total, lar snrpassinglast year's meager 417, is th<' largest honseparty 
crowd since Winter Carnival, 1953. 

Leading the fraternities in number of dates is Kappa Alpha, 
with a total of 39 lovelies attending festivities. Running close be- 
hind are Delta Upsilon with 37, and beta Theta Pi with .36 girls. 
Also in tlie running are Zeta Psi with 33 and Delta Psi with 32 
lassies. 

Hmillt hfi Neck 
lire race between girls' schools was by no means as close as the 
race between the fraternities. With ease, Smith walked away with 
all the honors, sending 72 representatives. Placing a distant second, 
but doing excellently for a smaller school, is Saratoga's own Skid- 
more with 52 girls in town. Closing out the ranks of competitors are 
Holyoke, 41; Vassar, 35, and Bennet, 21. Altbongb Wellesley was 
able to glean only 14 in attendance, they were able to set some sort 
of a record when their girls started arriving on Monday because 
of their inid-terni vacation last week.

THEY'RE CLAMORING FOR THEMI Who? Students. What? Luckies. Coast to 
coast, dormitory to dormitory, college smokers prefer Luckies to all other 
brands, according to the greatest up-to-datest college survey. Again, the 
No. 1 reason for Luckies' wide lead: Luckies taste better. They taste better, 
first of all, because Lucky Strike means fine tobacco. Then, that tobacco is 
toasted to taste better. " It's Toasted " —the famous Lucky Strike process- 
tones up Luckies' mUd, good-tasting tobacco to make it taste even better. 
So enjoy the better-tasting cigarette . . . Lucky Strike. But don't be like 
the man in the Droodle above, titled: Pickpocket acqmring Luckies. Make 
sure you have plenty of your own. Buy Luckies by the carton.

Teams Threaten Pool Records 

Siituiday, Feb. 12 - Cmich Hob Muii's varsity swimiiiiiij^ Wiuu 
will seek its fointli victory in live starts today against a stioiin 
SpririKliclcl team. Sprinjilicld boasts tlnvi' N. K. I. S. A. cliarnpions, 
AII-AnuTitaii Jack Mayers, |ini Kcrricr and Drncc Hutchinson. 
'I'licsc men could set some new Williams pool records, 

'I'lu' 220 yard b'eestyle and the IK) yard freestyle should be the 
oulstaiKliii^; races ol the day since they will pit Williams' ontsland- 
in>; sopbomore Pete Diet/ against Mutehinson. Diet/ is now in e,\- 
ci'llent shape, alter recuperating Ironi his automobile accident of 
last November. Other men in this race will be louy Drotklciuan 

for the Purple and Art Schon-Q '. 

lieitt'r for Springfield. 
('lose Sprints 

The 50 and 100 yard freestyle 
.should also be close. Tlie line-up 
for SpriiiBficld in these events 
will hUBcly depend on whom they 
use in the opening' 300 yard medley 
relay and in the 220 freestyle. Jim 
Claris and Bob Wilks have been 
tlie Maroon choices thus far, how- 
ever Hutcliinson may be used here 
also. Williams will probably u.se 
any combination of Kirl Gardner, 
John Taylor and Bill Jenks. 

Tlie 150 yard medley will .see 
Captain Gene Latliam and Dave 
CunninKham racing against AU- 
American Mayers. This race could 
easily produce a new Williams 
pool record as Mayers has been in 
excellent form all season. He was 
clocked at 1:33.3 at Trinity la.st 
month. 

CunninKham, Pete Lewis and 
George Montgomery will compete 
against Mayers and Skanbalak in 
the 200 yard backstroke. Mayers 
is outstanding in this distance al- 
so, so the Purple trio will have 
their hands full, 

SpriUHfii'ld Co-captain Art Sem- 
le will face Dick Beamish in the 
200 yard breaststroke. Semle set 
a New England record this year 
against Trinity when he swam a 
2:53.3 race. 

The meet could very easily be 
decided by the final 400 yard 
freestyle relay. The strong Purple 
combine of Gardner, Taylor, La- 
tham, and Jenks will probably 
race Mayers, Hutchin,son, Schon- 
heiter. and Clark. 



Purple Six Faces 
Springfield Squad 

Undefeated Frosh Sextet 
Meets Taft Pucksters 



Saturday, Feb, 12 - Popular Nels 
Coiey, 39, coach of Freshman 
football and hockey, recently an- 
nounced his resignation in order 
to become assistant varsity foot- 
ball coach at his Alma Mater, 
Bowdoin College. New to Williams 
athletic fields this year, Corey has 
compiled a fine record. 

A marked succe.ss as a football 
coach, Corey led the yearlings to 
four victories and only one defeat. 
Its only setback was to Manlius 
Military Academy 21-13. For the 
first time in many years the Fresh 
took the Little Three Crown, 
romping over Weslcyan, and de- 
feating Amherst for the first time 
in five years. Currently his hockey 
team is undefeated, and all signs 
point to a continuation of this 
record, 

A 1939 graduate of Bowdoin, 
where he was a star athlete. Corey 
has had exten.sive football coach- 
ing experience. He was line coach 
at Governor Dummer Academy in 
1946 and 1947. head coach at 
Maine Central Institute from 1947 
to 1949, and from 1952 to 1954. He 
was line coach at Colby College in 
1949 and 1950 and head coach in 
1951. 



Saturday, Feb. 12 - Attempting 
to avenge a 5-2 setback at the 
hands of the Springfield six last 
year, the Williams Varsity Hockey 
team will meet the Maroon and 
White this Saturday before a Wil- 
liams Houseparty crowd. The Eph- 
men will be .seeking their fifth vic- 
tory in eight starts, and the pros- 
pects are good, for comparative 
records show the McCormick'smen 
vastly superior. 

Recording wins over Hamilton. 
M. I. T., and Holy Cro.ss twice, the 
Williams .squad has dropped but 
three, to Tufts. 8-6; Middlebury, 
6-0; and Norwich. 6-3, In their 
last game against Holy Cross, the 
Ephs recorded an impressive 13-1 
victory, as Bob Leinbach and Doug 
Poole, both sophomores led the 
scoring with thi'ee goals apiece, 
and George Wells and Howie Pat- 
terson each tallied twice. Captain 
Bill Irwin and Dick Flood scored 
one apiece to clo,se out the rout. 

Although not a regular varsity 
squad, Springfield's Hockey team 
has been very strong in past years. 
This year proves to be an excep- 
tion as they have dropped games to 
Hamilton. Clarkson. and Army. 
Standouts in defeat have been 
goalie Jack Costello and center 
Paul Crow. 

An undefeated Freshman Hockey 
aggregation, under the able Coach- 
ing of Nels Corey, will meet one 
of their toughest rivals this after- 
noon when they encounter Taft,

A Campus-to-Career Case History 




Manager Ray New explains the importance of good seniice to arte of his assistants 



His "individual training" paid off 

When Ray New— Business Adininislration, RulTalo. ,51 — 
started with INew York Telephone (^)inpany. he never suspected 
his work would face him with prohlcins of this sort— 



"My job as business olhcc nuuiapcr 
is to see that the cu.stomer gets the best 
possible service. One of my assignments 
took me into a section of Manhattan that 
had a large Puerto Rican population. 

"Frequently our people would get 
somebody on the line who couldn't speak 
a word of English. So I saw to it that 
each of my representatives learned a few 
standard Spanish phrases— enough to got 
sonichody to the telephone who ronid 
speak English. 

*'There are no two days alike in this 



work, with new problems roming up all 
the time. The hesi part of il is that the 
training program here is tailor-made to 
the joh. First y<)U gel a general hack-

SYSTEIM 



By Stu Auerbac'h 

Wednesday, Feb. 9 - Behind ten 
points at one time in the first 
half, a fighting Eph five won its 
twelfth straight victory of the 
season by defeating Springfield, 
winner of its last six contests. 
85-75 at Springfield tonight, 

Ron Wil.son i)aced the Eph scor- 
ing with 34 points. Wally Jensen 
was next with 22 points. However, 
Jensen's real worth to the team 
cannot merely be expressed by the 
number of points he scored. Early 
in the first half, when the Wil- 
liams offense wasn't able to .scoi'e. 
it was Jensen, with his timely 
jump shots and his accuracy fiom 
the foul line that kept Williams 
in the game. And it was Jensen's 
remarkable ballhandling perfor- 
mance that brought the ball up- 
court against the Maroons all- 
court press. Jen.sen continually 
dribbled the ball past the ten se- 
cond line, making the defenders 
look silly as they tried to stop 
him, 

Springfield Defense 

Springfield used a combination 
of an all-court press and a switch- 
ing man-to-man defense which 
effectively bottled up the Wil- 
liams offense in the first half. The 
Ephs were confused, taking poor 
shots and not working the ball 
in their usual fashion. Their con- 
fusion also showed in their de- 
fensive play. 

It was during this period that 
the Maroons were building up theii' 
ten point margin. Playing even 
basketball, the teams traded field 
goals for the first ten minutes of 
the game. Then, from an 18-18 
tie. Springfield grabbed a 34-24 
lead in four minutes of play. 
Charlie Sharos and Bob Morrison 
led the drive with six and five 
points respectively, while Wilson 
and Jensen did all the Eph scoring 
during that period. j

Ski Team Earns 
Class "4" Rating 

Prime, Clark, Hoyt Lead 
Ephmen At Lydonville 



Saturday, Feb. 12 - Coach Ralph 
Townsend's varsity skiers, fresh 
from a sweep of the E, I, S, A, 
Class B Championships at Lydon- 
ville, Vt. last weekend, appear on 
the way to regaining their Class A 
rating. Warm weather and rain 
have eliminated the possibility 
of holding any events at the Wil- 
liams Winter Cai'nival. 

By topping the seven team field 
at Lydonville, the Purple earned 
the right to participate in the 
Class A Championship Meet slated \ 
for February 18 and 19 at the Mid- 
dlebury Carnival, If the Town- 
sendmen finish higher than second 
or third from the last place team 
at Middlebury, they will be able 
to compete with the top college 
teams once again. 

Prime Skimeistcr 

Amassing a total of 367,6 points i 
at the "B" Championships, Bill 
Prime became ,skimeister of the 
meet. In previous competition this 
year. Prime captured a creditable 
15th in the Woodstock Slalom a- 
gainst the top performers in this 
area on January 15, Another top 
Eph was Pete Clark, who took top 
honors in the down-hill-slalom 
Alpine combined at Lydonville by 
virtue of placing a close second In 
each of the events separately. Cap- 
tain George Olmsted captured the 
Nordic combined title. 

Sherm Hoyt. out last year with 
a broken leg. Clark, Olmsted and 
Prime were .scheduled to ski four 
events in the 1955 Williams Car- 
nival but an absence of i.now will 
keep the Ephmen out of action. 
In the downhill race. Hoyt gained 
a third last weekend as he fin- 
ished three-tenths of a second 
behind Clark. 



Blue's Jecko Stars 
In 42-33 Victory 

Wednesday. Feb. 9 - Competing 
agaln.st Hotchkiss at Lakcville. 
Connecticut, the Williams fresh- 
man swimming team went down to 
a 42-33 defeat today. The close 
contest was tire first official swim- 
ming meet to be held in the new 
Hotchktss pool. 

A combine of Evan Williams. 
Barry Buckley and John Creden 
started Williams off on the right 
foot by copping the 150 yard med- 
ley relay with a time of 1:26.1. 
This lead was short-lived, however, 
as Hotchkiss' Tim Jecko captured 
the 200 yard freestyle in 1:59.1. 
setting a new .school record. John 
Gibbs of Hotchkiss took second, 
with Williams' Ci'eden gaining one 
point for thii'd. 

Severance Impresses 

Bob Sevei'ance took a first for 
the Ephs in the 50 yard freestyle 
in 25.1. but Williams failed to 
take over the lead in the meet as 
the Blue's Tom Little and Bill 
Tracy took second and third. In 
the 100 yard freestyle. Severance 
copped his second win of the af- 
ternoon with a time of 55.2. Hotch- 
kiss again placed second and third 
and widened their lead by taking 
fii'st and thii'd in both the diving 
and 100 yard backstioke. 

In the 150 yai'd Individual med- 
1 ley. Jecko of Hotchkiss took an- 
1 other first with Fred Corns of 
I Williams second. Corns and Buck- 
ley captured fir.st and .second in 
the 100 yard brcaststi'oke to put 
the Williams team back in con- 
tention, but in the final event of 
the afternoon. Williams dropped 
the 200 yard relay and the meet. 



Saturday, Feb, 12 - The power- 
ful Williams basketball machine, 
undefeated in its first twelve 
games, will play host to the 'Oni- 
vei-sity of Vei'mont quintet tonight, 
at 8:45 in the Lasell Gymnasium. 
A large and appreciative Hou.se- 
party crowd will be on hand to 
witness the contest as the Purple 
five, under Coach Al Shaw, at- 
tempts to bettei- its impressive re- 
cord against the visiting Cata- 
mounts, who so far have shown 
more fight than skill. 

The season's record of Coach 
John "Fuzzy" Evan's Vermont 
team to date is not at all impres- 
sive, standing at only four wins 
against seven losse.ss. This pre- 
sent record includes victories over 
Maine. Rhode Island State, and 
New Hampshire twice, while UVM 
has succumbed to UMa,ss, Dart- 
mouth, Middlebui'y, Colby and 
A. I. C. 

Jampolis, Steinman Stars 

The Catamount starting five is 
led by two senior guards, captain 
Keith Jampolis. six feet, and Eai'l 
Steinman. six foot one. Steinman 
is the team's leading scorer and 
an excellent defensive guard, while 
Jampolis is avei'aging about twelve 
points per game and broke the 
all-time Vermont scoring record 
in the St. Michael's game this 
year. With these two men in the 
backcourt. UVM can rely a good 
deal on accurate outside shooting 
if the Eph defense bottles up the 
middle. 

Sophomore Arthur Burkhardt 
and junior Wilbur Mann will start 
in the forward positions: both are 
six foot three. Coach Evans has 
been able to count on both men 
foi' a respectable number of points 
each game with Mann throwing in 
eleven per contest. Filling the pi- 
vot spot will be six foot four Wil- 
liam King, a .iunior. who rebounds 
well but has not proven to be a 
consistent scorer. 

Reserves Strong 

Besides the stai'ting five, the 
UVM club boasts .some strong ma- 
terial on the bench. Filling in at 
forward positions will be .six foot 
four Jack Lafave. Harold Moore, 
six fool two, and Richard Dennis, 
Also available for action will be 
center Herb Brown, while Bari'y 
Stone and Roland Massimino will 
replace Jampolis and Steinman in 
the guard spots. 

In twelve years of coaching since 
he took over in 1941. "Fuzzy" 
Evans has compiled an enviable re- 
cord of 149 wins and 73 losses.

Placement Bureau Slates Meeting 
To Aid Seniors in Landing Jobs 



Wyckoff to Offer Talk. 
Conduct Discussions, 
Scfiedule I nterviews 



Saturday, Feb. 12 - Following 
the highly-successful custom ol 
recent years, Placement Director 
William Wyckoff will conduct a 
special program concerning "Job- 
Getting Techniques" on Wednes- 
day evening at 7;30 in the Student 
Union Conference rooms. 

The program, which will con- 
sist of a ao-minute talk and a 
question-answer period at the 
end, is the outgrowth of an origi- 
nal proposal by the old Undergra- 
duate Council. 

Wyckoff pointed out that with 
graduation just around the cor- 
ner, the seniors would do well to 
attend this session, designed es- 
pecially to advise the graduates 
on job-hunting methods. 

Representatives Here 

Many representatives of busi- 
ness, fmance and industry will be 
here this Spring, Wyckoff said, 
for the express purpose of inter- 
viewing potential job candidates. 
Prom now until Spring Vacation, 
virtually every weekday will find 
at least one such persoimel di- 
rector on campus. 

To keep the seniors posted, Se- 
nior Memos will be sent out every 
Wednesday with the names of 
visiting job recruiters listed for 
10 days in advance. In addition, 
more information concerning the 
individual companies will be avail- 
able at both the Placement Bureau 
and at the Library. Only com- 
panies which have definite Job 
openings will send representatives, 
he added. 

Draft Problem 

Wyckoff added that seniors 
should not be alarmed by their 
draft status. He commented, "In 
many cases, if a student has three 
or more months after graduation 
before entering the service, a com- 
pany may hire him anyway to 
gain invaluable on-the-job train- 
ing." And, in many cases, the grad- 
uate's job then will be held open 
for him until after his discharge 
from the service. 

Citing the overwhelnring success 
of these meetings and the on-the- 
campus interviews In the past, 
Wyckoff then urged all seniors to 
take advantage of these opportimi- 
tles this year by attending the 
special Wednesday program. 

Springfield . . . 

Ephs began to live up to their re- 
putation and they fought back to 
a 45-44 halftime deficit. Again it 
was Jensen and Wilson, along with 
Bill Cullen who sparked the drive, 
each scoring six points. Jensen 
hit on six for six foul shots, Wil- 
son made four for four and a 
jump shot, while Cullen sank two 
layups and a set. 

The Springfield offense revolv- 
ed around their big center, 6- 
foot 9-inch Ronnie Clark. Clark, 
although he only scored 20 points, 
hit with deadly accuracy from the 
floor and was a good rebounder. 
Williams got a good break as he 
fouled out with ten minutes still 
to go in the game. At that time 
Williams had taken a slight three 
point lead. From there, Williams 
kept driving against a disorganized 
team until they increased their 
margin to ten points. 

Game Not Over 

But the Maroons proved that 
they still had some fight left to 
them. Led by Clayton Bywaters, 
a small man who can jump like 
a kangaroo, and Roy Koelbel, a 
substitute who came off the bench 
to replace Clark, Springfield came 
within three points of Williams, 
reducing the Eph's 69-62 lead to 
69-66, with four and a half min- 
utes still to play. But ten points 
by Wilson and four by Bob Buss 
quickly swamped this last min- 
ute rally. 

A switch to a zone defense in 
the second half by Williams pi'oved 
very effective In harrying the Mar- 
oon offense and pulling Clark out 
from under the boards. Williams 
pulled an iron men victory, using 
the five starters for the most part 
throughout the game. Only two 
substitutes saw action, and then 
for only a limited amount of 
time. 

High scorers for Springfield 
were Clark with 20 and Morrison 
with 18. Other men in double fig- 
ures were John Hopkin.s with 12 
and Sharos with U.

Tax Expert Talks 
On New Policies, 
Business Trends 



Randolph Paul, Former 
Advisor to President, 
Lectures In Griffin 



Monday, Feb. 7 - This evening 
in Griffin Hall, Randolph Paul, 
a former tax advisor to the presi- 
dent, and author of seven books, 
gave a lecture on current issues in 
federal tax policy. Mr. Paul, who 
is a graduate of Amherst College, 
began his talk by stating that tax- 
es are not just for revenue, but 
that one of their more important 
uses is to prevent inflation. 

Paul then entered into a dis 
cussion of the three different 
schools of tax policy. The Coolidge- 
Mellon-McGill school believes that 
taxes should be used primarily to 
raise revenue. The second school 
states that taxation should ac 
complish social and economic pur- 
poses. The Lerner and Rummel 
school believes that the purpose 
of taxation should be stated pub- 
licly and not merely obscured in 
terms of raising revenue. 

1954 Business Conditions 

Paul next moved on to a dis 
cussion of business conditions. He 
stated that 1953 had been a boom 
year, but that business had under- 
gone a decline in the last quarter 
of 1953 and the first three quar- 
ters of 1954. 

Paul concluded with a discus- 
sion of the complete revision of 
the internal revenue code in 1954. 



Troyer Declares 
Voluminous Sales 



Student Book Exchange 
Needs More Volumes 



Saturday, Feb. 12 - Bill Troyer, 
'56, head of the Student Book Ex- 
change, announced recently that 
the current sale of books for se- 
cond semester use has been quite 
heavy. Over 300 have been sold 
already, and except for out of date 
books most of the volumes on 
hand are gone. The Student Book 
Exchange acts as an agent for 
the individual student in all trans- 
actions and takes a 10* handling 
chai'ge out of the final sale price. 

On the other side of the ledger, 
far less than the amount of books 
necessary to make it operate at 
capacity next semester have been 
received by the Exchange. In order 
to obtain more volumes, Troyer 
has promised to canvass the cam- 
pus on February 7, 8, and 9. 

Troyer stressed that the larger 
the inventory the better the ex- 
change service. He urged all stu- 
dents to deposit their books at 
the Exchange in the Student Uni- 
on. Assisting Troyer in the man- 
agement of the Exchange room 
are Leo Oilsen, '57, and Warren 
Brown, '57. 



Novel Set Graces 
A M T Production 



Trapp Designs Scenery 
For Forthcoming Play 



Saturday, Feb. 12 - The set and 
costumes for tlie Adams Memorial 
Theatre pioduction of The Lady's 
Not for Burning by Christopher 
Pry have been designed by Frank 
Anderson Trapp, Lectuier in the 
Art department. This play will 
open Thursday night and will 
run through Saturday night. 

The setting of the play is in 
the house of the mayor of Cool 
Clary, Hebble Tyson. It is a ro- 
mantic fantasy of Gothic archi- 
tecture done in many colors of 
reds, greens, blues, yellows, and 
browns which form patterns and 
shadows on the walls like sun- 
light passing through a window. 
The house is shown both Inside 
and out. A bell tower stands in 
the middle of the set and the walls 
are crenelated. The only pieces of 
furniture present are a chair and 
a stool. 

Medieval Costumes 

The costumes are historically 
derived in part, but not so much 
so as to lose the comic flavor of 
the play. They are colorful Flem- 
ish costumes made of tweed and 
typical of the period of the play, 
lauO. The judge and mayor have 
a ceremonial type of dress while 
uther actors wear peasant and 
craftsman clothes. Tlie ladies' par- 
^y uresses were designed from an 
earner period. Comic devices are 
also used in the costumes; for 
example, Hebble Tyson wears a 
Shakespearean fool's cap. 

The various crew heads for this 
production are Peter Cook '55, 
production manager: John Lang- 
maid '56, stage manager; Edgar W. 
Noyes, technical supervisor; John 
Mattice '56, lighting; George 
Rounds '55 and Ridgeway Banks 
'58, sound: Allan Foehl '56, pro- 
perties; and George Rounds '55 
and Regnar Plesner '56, costumes 
and make up. Jol Oberly has given 
dramatic assistance for this pro- 
duction in coaching Barbara Tay- 
lor. 



Vermont . . . 

His team last year ended up at 
13-7, becoming co-state champion 
in the process. This season, al- 
though UVM's overall record Is 
poor, Evans has coached his team 
to a 4-1 record in the Yankee 
Conference, which includes U. 
Conn., Maine, R. I. State, N^w 
Hampshire and UMass. 

9th Game Since 1901 

Tonight's contest will be the 
ninth in a series which began 
first in 1901. So far the two teams 
have split, each wirmlng four. In 
the last game between Williams 
and Vermont in 1948, the Purple 
was defeated by the score of 54-45. 
Thus this game takes on double 
importance, as the Ephs will not 
only be trying to continue unbeat- 
en, but also both clubs will be at- 
tempting to bi-eak the deadlocked 
series. 

On the basis of a comparison of 
the teams' records, and also bring- 
ing in the home five's definite 
height advantage, with center 
Tony Moro at six foot six, and for- 
wards Ron Wilson and Bob Buss 
both at six four, Williams must be 
established as definite favorite in 
this contest. The Ephs may be rid- 
ing for a fall, however, and Ver- 
mont could conceivably do it to- 
night, although the visitors will 
have to play way over their heads 
if they are to accomplish the 
thing that many other teams have 
found impossible so far. 

Frosh Meet Dartmouth 

The freshman quintet of Coach 
Bobby Coombs moves into the big 
time tonight in the preliminary 
game starting at 6:30 when the 
Dartmouth Indians invade Wil- 
liamstown. Although the Purple 
frosh have won seven in a row. 
all but two of the.se victories came 
against prep school or boy's club 
teams. The Indians, coached by 
Al McGulre, are undefeated and 
boast a six foot nine center, as 
well as two skyscraping forwards, 
at six foot seven and six foot six, 
while the Purple five's tallest man 
is six foot two. It seems likely that 
the Williams string will be broken 
by the towering Indian five. The 
Ephs will be paced by high scoring 
guard Marv Weinsteln and center 
Charlie Schweighauser.

William and Mary 
Prexy Bans Booze 

Dry Sailor Outlaws 
Campus Imbibition 

Saturday, Feb. 12 - The presi- 
dent of William and Mary Col- 
lege, Alvln D. (for "Duke") 
Chandler, has recently taken a 
drastic and courageous step, re- 
ports the Januaiy 31 Issue of 
Newsweek. He has outlawed the 
indoor land outdoor) sport of 
drinking, on the W & M campus. 
In his prohibition announcement, 
he fell back on that a:icient and 
archaic statute which forbids the 
sale of strong waters to minors. 

Chandler, who is a retired USN 
Admiral, declared that the ban 
would be .stringently applied to 
all drinking hi fraternities. The 
college will no longer condone vi- 
olations of the liquor laws, he said, 
and pressure will also be applltd 
on all local establishments to re- 
fuse sales to underage undergrad- 
uates. 

The William and Mary campus 
has been far from tranquil since 
the Chandler pronouncement. 
There have been fanatical demon- 
strations and riots against the 
move. Placards warning that "Big 
brother is watching you," and "Sex 
is next" have appeared in embar- 
a.ssingly prominent places. As one 
Viiginia sage ominously put it, 
"Liquor & sex aie the two pillar.s 
of social life. Chandler has chop- 
ped out one of them." Letters-to- 
tlie-editors have appealed in many 
southern newspapers castigatlUK 
the President. One Junior accu.s- 
ed the ex-Admiral of trying to 
create a USS William and Mary. 
Tliere is little chance that the 
"dry sailor" will relent, becau,se 
he is standing on pretty firm le- 
gal ground.

FTC Discusses 
Fraternity Dining, 
Billing By College 

Sargisson Attacks New 
College Interference, 
Future Centralization 



Monday. Feb. 14 - This after- 
noon the Fraternity Treasurers' 
Council met to discuss problems 
connected with Fraternity Dining 
Service. In particular discus.slon 
centered around the fact that se- 
veral fraternities have agreed to 
let the college handle directly all 
their board bills and boolc-keeping 
incidental to maintaining a Icit- 
chen. 

The houses that have their board 
bills handled through the college 
are Delta Phi, Delta Upsilon, and 
Alpha Delta Phi. In the near fu- 
ture. Kappa Alpha and Zeta Psi 
may Join this plan. 

Sareisson's Criticism 

Duane T. Sargisson '55. Presi- 
dent of the Fraternity Tieasurers' 
Council, felt that the houses going 
Into this plan were "talting a step 
towards a form of centralization 
that destroys the financial integ- 
rity of the house. Once this integ- 
rity is lost, the house no longer has 
complete independence." 

Sargisson criticized this plan 
further feeling that the Fraternity 
Dining Service sponsored by the 
college administration was set up 
originally as an enlarged super- 
marliet. This FDS would enable 
the fraternities to pool their re- 
sources and utilize the facilities 
of the Student Union Storage 
rooms and thereby cut costs. Sar- 
gisson stated the college did not 
have the right to "interfere with 
fraternity finances". 

Graduate Committee Opinion 

Jeromp W Rn'sh, Jr., Chnii'man 
of FDS. will be here this weekend 
to meet with the officers and 
members of the Fraternity Trea- 
surers' Council. Mr. Brush and 
his committee tssued n report last 
Spring with several suggestions 
for improving FDS. 

It is expected that the sub-com- 
mittee will redefine the entire 
function of FDS so that its rela- 
tion to the fraternities at Wil- 
liams will be completely clear. 
Mr. Brush may also discuss the 
controversy raised by several of 
the fraternities being billed di- 
rectly through the college. 

Mr. Sidney M. Chtsholm, Di- 
rector of Dining Halls, has made 
a preliminary estimate of what 
the cost is per meal in each fra- 
ternity house. There are twelve 
fraternities in FDS. and since only 
nine of these twelve have turned

Gorgeous Georgian 
Cops Beauty Test 

Wednesday, Feb. 16 - In spite of 
the multitude of skiing events can- 
celled, the always-creative Eph- 
men managed to live up to their 
strict tradition. The panorama of 
impromptu cocktail parties, the 
deluge of famed musical aggrega- 
tions, and a sweep of athletic 
events helped further the reputa- 
tion of the Williams Carnival as 
the tops in winter festivities. 

Tlie weekend began officially 
Friday afternoon as a noisy group 
of makeshift musicians greeted the 
anxious load of femininity arriving 
on the trains. The big attraction 
of the night was the All-College 
Dance, featuring Tommy Tucker 
and Billy Williams. 

Carnival Queen 

While the dancing continued, 
twenty-four madly-primping con- 
testants for the Carnival Queen 
Contest, chosen by six representa- 
tives from each class, waited for 
the final Judgment. The winner 
was curvaceous 1 36-24-371, blond- 
haired, blue-eyed LoUie Epsy from 
Savannah, Georgia. 

The 17 year-old Emma 'Willard 
senior received a shower of prizes 
from the local merchants. The 
competent Judges, John O'Neill, 
Bernard Lyman, Roy Lamson, 
Frank Thoms. and David Bryant, 
stoutly maintained that the con- 
test was clean, with no strings 
attached. 

Ephs Sweep 

Still going strong by Saturday, 
huge crowds saw the entire Wil- 
liams varsity athletic plant sweep 
to victory over tough opponents. 
The Eph-swimmers defeated a 
potential All-American Spring- 
field team, and Williams Wrestlers 
sent a disgruntled Coast Guard 
home. 

The undefeated Williams varsity 
basketball team sought and attain- 
ed its thirteenth consecutive win 
against the University of 'Vermont. 
The Williams squad remains the 
only undefeated team in New Eng- 
land.

Speakers; Maurice Samuel To Lecture 
Friday On "Meaning of Jewish History" 

Wednesday, Feb. 16 - The Williams College Jewish Association 
today announced its spring schedule of speakers. Five men, said 
President Stejiheii Wiener 56, have agreed to deliver sermons at 
the Friday evening services in Jesuji Hall. 

The first guest speaker, Maurice Samuel, will talk at the 4:45 
service this Friday evening, February 18. Mr. Samuel will speak on 
the topic, "The meaning of Jewish History: An Interpretation of the 
Pattern of hleas Represented by the Jewish Episode in World His- 
tory." 

Rep. CcUcr may speak 

hi addition to Mr. Samuel, Wiener released the following list 
of speakers: Rabbi Harold Salznian of Pittsfield on March 4; Rab- 
bi Samuel Silver, editor of the magazine "American Judaism", on 
March 28; Rabbi Daniel Davis, Director of the New York Federa- 
tion of Reform Synagogues, on Ajiril 22; and tentatively, sometime 
in May, Representative Emanuel Celler of Brooklyn, chairman of 
the House Judiciary Conimitteo. 

Membership iiicrffl-siiig 

WCJA Treasurer Richard Maidinan '.55 reported that member- 
ship has been steadily clinil)iii,H toward the covetetl 100 per cent 
goal. So far, said Maidnian, between 3.5 and 40 students are mem- 
bers, or about one-half the honod-for total. 

. Several noteworthy contributions have also been received by 
the expanding group. The North Adams chapter of B'nai B'rith. 
tlirougli its President Samuel Hirsch, recently donated 100 new 
Union Prayer Books. 

Mr. Samuel wnrld-famous 

Friday's speaker, Maurice Samuel, is a world-reknowned schol- 
ar and leader of Jewish affairs. Bern in Bmnania and educated in 
England, he has traveled extensively as a lecturer, novelist and 
translator. 

He lived for 10 year.s in Palestine, worked with the Reparations 
Commission in Berlin and was an interpreter for the Peace Confer- 
ence after the first World War. In 1944, he received a prize from 
'"Tlie Saturtiay Review of Literature" for his book, "The World of 
Sholom Aleicnein". 



Thursday. Feb. 10 - Bill Kerr '56 
was elected to the position of pre- 
sident of the Williams Travel Bu- 
reau in the organization's annual 
election today In Jesup Hall. He 
succeeds Bill Mauritz '56. 

Following Kerr as business man- 
ager of the Travel Bureau is Jack 
Moxley '57. who formerly held the 
position of vice-president in 
charge of airline reservations. Al 
Isaacson '57 succeeds Moxley in 
this capacity. Jim Smith '57 suc- 
ceeds himself as vice-president in 
charge of railroad reservations. 
Bureau Cites Work 

The new president, a native of 
Chicago, noted that the Bureau 
offers facilities for making any 
train or plane reservations for 
students. It sponsors, among other 
things, a railroad car to Chicago 
during Christmas recess, a money- 
saving flight to Bermuda during 
the Spring recess, and handles 
reservations for an economical 
trip to Europe during the Summer 
recess. 

The Bureau is presently stress- 
ing the necessity for students who 
plan to fly anywhere during the 
Spring recess to make their re- 
servations promptly. 



Art Museum Exhibits 
Picasso's 'Guernica' 



Saturday, Feb. 12 - Fifty 
preparatory and "postscript" 
sketches of Pablo Picasso's fa- 
mous mural "guemlca" are be- 
ing shown through March 8th 
in the Lawrence Art Museum. 
This series of sketches repre- 
sents one of the most dramatic 
and complete documentations 
of the progress of a world- 
famous painting. Picasso has 
Imparted to the canvas the 
shock and horror he experienc- 
ed at the news of the bombing 
of the Basque town of Guemlca 
on April 28. 1937. 

The exhibition is divided Into 
three groups: Preparatory stu- 
dies directly related to the mu- 
ral; in its progressive stages of 
completion; and those sketches 
which Picasso continued to pro- 
duce, as if in an excess of emo- 
tion, after the canvas was com- 
pleted.

"The Lady's Not For Burning", 
which is being produced at the 
Adams Memorial Theatre this 
weelteiid undei Uie Uirectiuii of 
David C. Bryant, appeared on 
Broadway late In 1950, and en- 
Joyed a popular and .successful 
engagement. The critics realized 
that something new and refreshing 
had been Imported to the Ameri- 
can stage, and outdid themselves 
in trying to describe exactly what 
it was. Article after article ap- 
peared with metaphors you might 
think had been turned by Fry 
himself. One reviewer stated that 
"It .seemed that the aurora bore- 
alis had turned humorist. Mr. Fry 
jests with Stardust, and is witty 
in iambic. . .he is a master Jew- 
eler." All of the critics-tui'ned- 
poets agreed that Fi'y had some- 
thing which had not been heard 
on the stage since the first Age 
of Elizabeth. 

Tlie play Itself is written in 
blank verse, and filled with meta- 
phor, irony, wit and beauty. If 
there is anything at all wrong with 
it, it is the over dosage of meta- 
phor, which is really untedlous 
fun for the mind and ear. The 
poet himself knows this, admits 
this, and likes this. He purpose- 
fully toys with verbal music, and 
manages to communicate a spirit 
to the audience which lifts you 
into an imaginative world of gen- 
uine human nature dressed in the

Wednesday, Feb. 16 - The first 
in a series of seven lectures to 
be given by members of the fac- 
ulty was given by Dr. James Row- 
land Curry, Professor of chemistry, 
Thursday afternoon in the Bi- 
ology Building. Curry spoke on 
certain aspects of the solid with 
particular reference to the struc- 
ture of the solid. 

Using slides and spacial mo- 
dels of certain chemical com- 
pounds Curry explained how the 
properties of a solid depend on the 
atoms present and the manner by 
which they are arranged. He said 
that almost all solids are compos- 
ed of crystals and that up until 
the nineteenth century nothing 
was known about the inner struc- 
ture of these crystlas, although 
many chrystallographers had stu- 
died their external symmetry and 
angles. 

Curry Explains X Ray 

Curry then explained to his au- 
dience that it was discovered that 
by means of X Ray the internal 
structure of crystals could be stud- 
ied. X ray was discovered in 1895 
and a German scientist decided to 
pass these rays through a crystal 
As the rays were directed at the 
crystal, a pattern was produced 
on a photo plate. Other scientists 
then began to experiment with 
these defraction patterns of vari- 
ous crystals. 

Showing slides of different de- 
fraction patterns, Curry said that 
all crystals have such a pattern 
which means that Inside the crys- 
tal there is a pattern of the build- 
ing blocks of that crystal. By 
measuring the length of the rays 
and distance apart of each mem- 
ber of the pattern, the speaker 
said that one could discover the 
position of each atom in the mole- 
cule. 

Curry Gives Example 

Curry then took a piece of cop- 
per and said that if it were etched 
with nitric acid one might view 
the crystalline structure of this 
metal. All metals are crystalline. 
He discussed how in crystal cop- 
per all the atoms are packed tight- 
ly together and held in place by a 
"glue" of electrons. Showing some 
spacial models of various mole-

sought soon. 

New Additions 

The construction will make a- 
vailable 37 new faculty offices and 
50 carrels or study units, and will 
double the present capacity of the 
book stacks by adding seven tiers 
containing 510 double-faced, three 
foot stack units. 

Also included will be two special 
sections: one to house the Roper 
Public Opmion Collection, the gift 
of Elmo Roper. It includes data 
on more than 500,000 interviews, 
conducted primarily for Fortune 
from 1938-52. The other section 
will be for the Whiteman Collec- 
tion, a gift from Paul Whiteman 
and consisting of original manu- 
script scores and parts of music 
written and arranged for Paul 
Whiteman's Orchestra. 

Fund Raising 

Fund raising for the additions 
was launched by an anonymous 
donation of $100,000 and was 
pushed by President Baxter during 
the autumn. More than $300,000 
in gifts is now in sight, including 
a grant of $15,000 from the Fred 
L. Emerson Foundation Inc. of 
Auburn, New York, and contribu- 
tions from the Beinecke Founda- 
tion, the Merrill. Pierce, Fenner, 
and Beane Foundation, and from 
many friends and alumni. 

A special feature of the library 
additions will be a reading room 
to be known as the Preston Mem- 
orial Room, in honor of the late 
college trustee, Roger Preston '22 
of Chestnut Hill, Mass. A special 
drive is being held to raise funds 
for furnishing the room, which 
will be finished with antique pan- 
eling donated by William H. 'Van- 
derbilt. Conducting this special 
fund are Charles Cutler. '21 of 
Boston. George Olmstead Jr. '24, 
of Chestnut Hill, and Russel M. 
Sanders of Wellesley Hills. 



NEWS IN BRIEF 



Reverend Cole Gives 
Houseparty Sermon 



Chaplain Calls Goodness 
Innate Christian Love 



West Point's 18-man Board of \'isitors headed hv President 
Baxter unanimously ajiprovetl a motion by Rep. llebert ( D-La ) to 
the effect that the Academv's football team sboiild be free to acce]it 
bids to post-season Bowl games (probablv either Sugar or Cotton 
because of conference ties). The Board, made up of members of 
Congress, military and ci\ih'an advisors, is purely advisory in na- 
ture. Its recommendations, made at annual meetings, usuallv carry 
considerable weight in determining the policies hy which the Point 
is administered. 



Even the New York Herald Tribtine noted the recent $10 de- 
crease in the college board bills which freshmen and non -affiliates 
received for this term. The new rate. S220. is made possible h\ 
savings made in the comniissarv. 



C. B. Dem)isey noted recently that the Albany SaKation .\rmv 
is in need of clothing, shoes and blankets for its needy eases. Mr. 
Denipsex' will see that any goods which are left at his Spring Street 
shop are delivered to the .'\rmy. Last \'ear over .500 lbs. of clothing 
were given from this area. 



Irving T. Marsh in his Herald Trihtine sports cohimn related 
Simday that his statement to the effect that this year's basketball 
s(|uad is Williatns' first inidefeated team "brotight dowii the roof 
from old timers". It seems that the Ephs were lindcfeated in 1910. 



Sunday. Feb. 13 - "This Busi- 
ness of Being Good" was the topic 
of Chaplain William G. Cole's 
sermon this morning. Speaking to 
a houseparty congregation. Mr. 
Cole posed a rather pertinent 
question — "How can you be good 
and have fun at the same time?" 
— and came up with an answer 
which would not make teetotalers 
or celibates of man. 

Mr. Cole called Kant's belief, 
that emotions are the source of 
evil and must be rigidly controlled, 
a negative approach. In the New 
Testament, pointed out Mr. Cole, 
it is not the bodily vices that are 
condemned as much as the inner 
vices such as pride and hypocrisy. 

Mere surface morality Is not 
what Jesus wanted, continued the 
Chaplain. What Jesus wanted was 
transformation of the inner at- 
titude. "Goodness means changing 
the Internal nature so that will 
power is no longer necessary to do 
that which is right." Je.sus tells us 
not to stifle our feelings but to 
express them. Christian love is the 
emotion most basic and most com- 
mon — and most satisfying ■ — to 
man.

Editorial 

In Appreciation 

It lias just recently been announced that the Trustee.s of the 
college have authorized the construction of a $400,000 addition to 
the library. This project, which will get underway sometime near 
the end of the present school term, will double the present size of 
Stetson Hall. Grants from various foundations have supplemented 
the many gifts from ahnnni and friends of the college whose con- 
tributions have made this new addition possible. 

Starting eaily this fall with an anonymous gift of $100,000 
the campaign for funds is already Hearing its goal. The graduates 
of Williams and the friends of the college responded readily and 
generously to the drive which President Ba.xfer pushed; this is e\ 
idence of the great respect and high regard that the college com 
mands, not merely in the New England area but throughout the 
country. 

This addition to the library is something which has been need 
ed and which will, with its increased capacity and its sjjecial col 
lections, fiu'ther increase the educational ojiportunities available 
at Williams. At last we are getting a library which will be even more 
in keeping with the high scholastic and educational position that 
Williams holds. 

During the last examination period, it was seen that the student 
body has grown too large for the present library to be able to satis 
fy fully the needs of the undergraduates. In the evenings the read 
ing rooms and the stacks were crowded, and despite the fact that 
the classrooms in Hopkins Hall were open, there were seldom 
enough desks available, particularly in the cage. 

The Trustees' action is appreciated by all members of the VVil 
liams community, both students and faculty. It shows that even 
though thev do not live in Williamstown or have direct and immed- 
iate contact with the college, the Trustees are still very aware of 
the problems on the cam])us and are indeed deeply interested in the 
welfare of Williams. Even more important are the many friends of 
the school who so generously contributed to the fund. To them, the 
RECORD would like to say — thank you.

Letter to the Editor 



To the Editor of the RECORD; 

As one who is interested both in music ( including "Dixieland " ) 
and Williams, I should like to express through yoiu' columns my 
feeling that great credit should he given to the Sjiring Street Stom- 
pers for the job they did on Arthur Godfrey's television programs. 
Not only are their musical renditions in the jazz idiom superb ( 1 
also heard them at Carnegie Hall), but their general appearance 
and deportment reflect great credit on Williams. On the latter score 
I refer ])articularly to the occasion of the morning session, following 
their victory on the Talent Scouts Program, when Godfrey was 
talking with them and offering to send his plane up to get them for 
further appearances. 

I have been hearing comments from various parts of the coun- 
try about this latest triumijh of the Stumpers, and I even venture 
to suggest that in certain less informal circles the impression may 
have begun to get around that there is another very fine institution 
which is not William and Mary. At any rate Jim Hayiie and his 
boys have done a very good thing for Williams. 

Incidentally, that old talent scout, Fred Copeland, didn't do 
a bad job either. 

Very truly yours, 

Henry Kirk Greer, '22

that college smokers prefer 
Luckies to all other brands — and 
by a wide margin. Once again, 
the No. 1 reason: Luckies taste 
better. They taste better, first of 
all, becaiase Lucky Strike means 
fine tobacco. Then, that tobacco 
is toasted to taste better. " It's 
Toasted "— ihe famous Lucky 
Strike process — tones up Luckies' 
light, good-tasting tobacco to 
make it taste even better. Luckies 
taste better anywhere, any time,

THE WILLIAMS RECORD, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 1955 



Eph Tankmen Down Springfield 
As Losers Set Two Records; 
Final Relay Determines Result 

Saturday, I'Vb. 12 - IVrlonninj. Ik-Ioi,. ;, capacity Winter CJai- 
nival crowd, (Joacli Hoi) Muir's varsity swi]inniii>^ team cdircd a 
powcrliil Springfield Collcjr,. team, 45-39, in Lascil Pool this after- 
noon. Tlu- close and exciting meet was not decided until tlie final 
relay wlii-n the Williams combination of Kirt Cardner, John Taylor, 
Pet(^ Diet/., and Hill Jenk.s sped to a relatively easy victory 

Despite the Williams triiunph, Springfield .s' 
off with the day's Individual lau- 
rels, breaking two pool records. 
Jack Mayers set a new mark of 



winuners waike 



1:36.0 in winning the individual 
medley, and also took first place 
In the 200 yard back.stroke event. 
And the Maroons' ace distance 
man Bruce Hutchinson set a pool 
standard of 4:48.0 while easily 
copping the 440 yard freestyle. 

Jenks Stars for Williams 

Junior sprint star Bill Jenks 
was the outstanding performer for 
the home team. In addition to 
capturing the 100 yard freestyle 
event, he swam brilliant anchor 
legs in the medley relay and the 
freestyle relay, both of which were 
won by the Ephs. Dletz, Gardner, ' 
and Dick Beamish also gained in- 
dividual victories for Williams. 

The home team built up a sub- 
stantial lead early in the meet. 
After Dave Cunningham, Beamish, 
and Jenks copped the medley re- 
lay in the fine time of 2:58.3, 
Dletz scored an easy triumph in 
the 200 freestyle event. In the 
next race, the 50 yard da.sh, Wil- 
liams Juniors Gardner and Taylor 
took first and second place. 

Springfield closed the gap in 
the following events. The two Ma- 
roon aces Mayers and Hutchinson 
teamed to finish first and second 
in the 150 yard individual medley 
despite the fine effort of Eph co- 
captain Gene Latham. Then the 
amazing Jim Farrier beat Buster 
Gros.sman in the dive. Mayers' 
win in the 200 backstroke was 
.sandwiched between victories by 
Ephs Jenks and Beamish in the 
100 yard freestyle and the 200 
breaststroke respectively. When 
Hutchinson and Bob Schonheiter 
took first and second in the 440, 
however, it pulled the Maroons 
into a 39-38 lead. This set the 
stage for the Williams win in the 
final relay.

Purple Wrestlers

Captain Little Pins Foe; 
Koster, Reed Impress 



Saturday, Feb. 12 - Coach Ed 
Bullock's varsity wrestlers put on 
their most impressive show of the 
season this afternoon in Lasell 
Gym as they defeated the Coast 
Guard Cadets. 15-6. Led by captain 
Bob Little who pinned his oppo- 
nent with a reverse half nelson in 
the second period, the Ephs drop- 
ped only two individual decisions 
during the meet. Besides Little, 
who wrestled at 157 pounds, the 
Williams grapplers who scored the 
most Impressive victories were Bob 
Koster and Al Reed, in the 147 
and 177 pound classes, respectively. 

Both Koster and Reed appeared 
to be toying with their opponents, 
and gained very clear-cut deci- 
sions. Other Williams victors were 
juniors Hank Lyden at 123 pounds 
and Ed Pitts at 130. who got their 
team off on the right foot by 
gaining decisions. Ted McKee at 
137 pounds and Gene Sullivan at 
167 were the only Purple grap- 
plers to bow, while heavyweight 
Bill Fall was held to a 4-4 draw.

To Stay Unbeaten 



Zimmerman Beats Kesel 
In Outstanding Match ; 
Others Win Easily 



Thursday, Feb. 10 - An unde- 
feated Yale squash team soundly 
trounced an outmanned Williams 
crew, 9-0, today at New Haven. 
The Ell nine was powerful from 
top to bottom, and caused Coach 
Chaffee to comment that it was 
the strongest team he has seen 
all year. The J. V. and freshman 
teams were also defeated by the 
Yale .squads by 5-2 and 6-3 scores, 
respectively. 

The outstanding match of the 
day was produced by the Williams 
number one man George Kesel and 
Yale star Warren Zimmerman. 
Kesel '55 dropped the first and the 
third game to fall behind 2-1. At 
this point, he rallied to take the 
fourth game and gain the lead in 
the fifth and last. However, Zim- 
merman rose to the occasion, and 
pulled out the final game in extra 
points. The scores were 15-12, 8- 
15, 15-7, 15-18, and 18-17. 

Mark Cluett, at second man, lost 
in four games and Paul Quinn, at 
the third spot, was defeated in 
three decisive games. Other Wil- 
liams players were Wood, Heppen- 
stall, Lindsay, Wierdsma, Barton 
and Schenck. Heppenstall and 
Barton were defeated in hard- 
fought five-game matches.

W Sliaw's varsitv quintet has done more for Williams than any 
other groii)) in recent years. A powerhouse basketball team affects 
manv aspects of colleirt^ life. But the key service of this year's Shaw- 
men to Williain.s is the fact that this one athletic team has united 
that stianj^e ambiguous Kniup that some have labeled "the Williams' 
family". 

Anyone win) was in the Lasell Gymnasivun the nif^ht of the 
Dartmoutb (^ame saw the united spirit of Williams in one of Its 
wilder moments. This show of college pride and enthusiasm was 
repented last week at S|5rin);field when approximately two hundred 
students ( including that perennial Son of Eph. Harry Hart), .se\- 
eral towiisjx'ople, and Mr. Keller sacrificed dinner to make Hie two 
hour trip. 

lint tlie .spirit at the games fails to tell the tale. Alumni, parents, 
and friends of the college throughout the country have either re- 
newed or gained a loyalty to the Berkshire \alley. Tliis group of 
Eph aluniiii and friends has been verv forceful in correcting hig- 
citv newsmen who have made the statenieut that there were no un- 
defeated basketball teams remaining in the country. Both Irving 
Marsh of the New York Herald Trihime and Bill Boeder of the New 
York World-Telegram and Sun have felt the blows of experienced 
Eplnnen. 

The Purple cagers ha\e established themsehes as one of the se- 
1 Iceted few who are being considered hir both of the major post- 
! I season toiirnanients. The interest sbowni by tlie "Willianrs' family" 
and the increasing skill of the players has given each game addi- 
tional significance. Goach Shaw has gone out of bis way to make 
sure that the E]jbs are up for each g^ame. .After rolling to fourteen 
straight victories, the Shawnien have ani\ed at the game that the 
"Williams" familv ' still considers "tbe big one". 

Add to the history of "Little Three" basketball u])si'ts tbe fact 
that Amherst has one of its finest cage teams in many years and it 
uuist he concluded that Saturday's game with the Jeffs should pro\ e 
cpiite a test for the hii^b-flyiug Epb quintet, .'\mberst (>)acb Hick 
Wilson has assembled a team that could upset any win streak. 

The Jeffs, in case you have neglected to notice, ha\e a ver\' 
resjiectable 13-4 season mark. And among tbe small colleges of the 
nation, ,\mherst with its zone defense ranks first in defending the 
loop. The offense is built around center Doug Hawkins, a six foot 
i\e inch junior, who can shoot and rebound with the country's 
best. Guard Pete Scott, now a senior and a little heavier, is out to 
ruin Williams with his set .shot for tbe third straight year. And Gap- 
tain Jerry Benson can still throw up the long ones as well as feed 
Hawkins down the middle. 

Recent "Little Three" history seems to favor Amherst in this 
duel. The Jeffs have captured six out of the last eight contests with 
Williams including two last season. It is difficult to think of a game 
in the Amherst cage without recalling the complete collapse of the 



Ephs last year, a performance that the RECGHD labeled as "one 
of the worst exhibitions jiut on by a Williams team in many years." 
Williams owes a lot to this vear's Shawmen. a team that has 



brought the college favorahle ]juf)licity on a nationwide scale. Stu- 
dents, facidty, aUunni and friends owe a lot to tbe group that has 
united the "Williams' family." Shawnien, if this season brings an 
undefeated team and post-season competition with the nation's 
best, Williams will praise and .salute you. But Saturday night at 
.\mherst, the big one will he playc^L Shawmen. this one you owe 
to Williams. 



^fARLtSS^OSDICK 



Amherst Takes A Thriller 

Bob Leinbach continued the rout 
with two goals in the final period. 
Poole scored his second goal and 
Dick Flood scored the tenth Eph 
goal. Springfield kept hustling and 
scored two goals to make the final 
score 10-4. Goalie Dick Marr play- 
ed a fine game in the nets with 42 
saves. 

At Amherst on Thursday, the 
Purple team blew a seemingly 
commanding 6-2 lead which it 
held in the second period and lost 
the game, 7-6. The Williams cause 
was seriously hurt when both 
Howie Patterson and Tom Von 
Stein were unable to play. Andy 
Anderson scored the winning goal 
with thirty seconds left in a sud- 
den-death overtime period to cap 
a brilliant comeback by the Lord 
Jeffs. 

Williams took a 4-1 first period 
lead on goals by Poole, Carl Don- 
ner, Mac Fiske, and Dick Gallun. 
Gary Leinbach and Tony Bradley 
scored in the second period to 
equalize the Amherst scoring in 
this stanza. Amherst tied the game 
with ihree tallies in the third peri- 
od, the third goal coming at 14;02. 



Frosh Pucksters 
Down Taft Team 



Cook Nets Four Goals 

In Decisive 8-2 Win 




Purple five Uses 
Fast Break Style 

Wilson, Cullen Lead 
Williams Scorers 



Saturday, Feb. 12 - This after- 
noon the Williams freshman hock- 
ey team of Coach Nets Corey con- 
tinued its unbeaten string as it 
outscored a visiting Taft School 
sextet by an 8-2 score. Led by 
first line center Dave Cook, who 
scored four goals, and Richie Lom- 
bard with three, the frosh played 
their most impressive hockey of 
the season against the strongest 
team they have encountered so 
far. 

Dave Cook scored the game's 
initial tally on an assist from Bob 
Keltle in 1:13 of the first period. 
Before the period closed three 
more purple pucks sailed into the 
visitors' nets. Cook was responsible 
for two while Lombard netted one. 
Down 4-0 at the start of the se- 
cond stanza, Taft came back 
strong as captain Tom Goodale 
scored twice before Lombard tal- 
lied again for Williams to bring 
the score after two periods of play 
to 5-2. Goalie Denny Doyle of the 
home team played exceptionally 
well in this period, as he was call- 
ed upon to make several difficult 
saves. 

Williams took complete control 
of the game in the third and final 
frame with Lombard. Cook and 
Dick Storch all scoring while the 
visitors were unable to crack the 
strong Eph defense of Tom Penny 
and Rick DriscoU, 



Saturday, Feb. 12 - Before a 
large houseparty crowd this even- 
Hig in the Lasell Gymnasium, the 
unbeaten Eph hoopsters scored 
;heir thirteenth victory by easily 
subduing Vermont, 82-65. A com- 
jination of a blistering fast break 
Attack and a large heiglit advan- 
age kept Vermont more defen- 
.sively minded than offensively. 
This led coach Al Shaw to remove 
his starters shortly after the be- 
ginning of the second half. 

The visitors got off to a quick 
4-0 lead before the Williams of- 
fense could get rolling. The Ver- 
monters led three times in the 
opening moments, but before five 
minutes of play had elapsed, the 
Purple five surged ahead and the 
outcome of the contest was no 
longer in doubt. Sophomore guard 
Bill Cullen tallied six of the first 
seven points for Williams by cut- 
ting the twines on two consecutive 
outside sets and pushing in a lay- 
up. Lanky center Tony Moro fi- 
nally sent Williams ahead 11-10 on 
a tap-in. This marked the begin- 
ning of the end for the speedy 
visitors. The Ephs continued to 
pour on the pressure, sweeping the 
boards and fast breaking down the 
court to build up a sixteen point 
halftime lead. 

Shaw Empties Bench 

The second halt play was dom- 
inated by the fine play of the Eph 
reserves. Throughout the half, 
Williams employed a tight zone 
defense that managed to hold the 
visitors in check. Seldom were the 
Green Mountain boys able to 
break in under the boards which 
were ably controlled by Jim Sy- 
mons and George Sykes. Vermont 
substitute Dick Dennis kept the 
losers in the game with his fine 
floor game and dead-eye accuracy 
on sets. 

None of the Purple regulars 
played long enough to get too 
many points, but four of them hit 
double figures. Wilson, the pereni- 
al high scorer, led with a total of 
sixteen points, twelve recorded in 
the first half. Bill Cullen who 
turned in his finest performance 
since the Hofstra game, followed 
with twelve. Co-captain Tony Moro 
and junior forward Bob Buss each 
were accredited with ten markers. 
For Vermont, only one man broke 
into double figures. Guard Earl 
Steinman. with an unerring set 
shot, scored fifteen points. 

Smith Returns to Action 

Almost as important to the home 
five as the victory was the return 
to the lineup of Herb Smitli, out 
with a dislocated ankle since the 
Rhode Island game, December 
10th. Even though his ankle is 
still not up to normal strength, 
he has been working out with the 
team. He played only a veiY few 
minutes and while in made only 
one point, but this game paved the 
way for his return to full active 
duty in the near future, perhaps 
for the all-important Amherst 
game on Saturday, February 19. 



Yearling Five Loses 
To Undefeated Team 



Saturday. Feb. 12 - Tire frosh 
basketball squad attempted to 
stretch its winning streak to 
seven games tonight but was 
soundly trounced by an unde- 
feated Dartmouth yearling five. 
82-55. Neither team played par- 
ticularly well but it was the 
great height advantage of the 
winners which made the big 
difference. The Purple team 
could not control the back- 
boards, and its inability to 
score from the floor turned 
what might have been a close 
game Into a one-sided runaway. 

The leading scorers in the 
contest were forward Bob Hof 
and tall center Ed Crawford of 
the visiting Indians, each with 
twelve poinU. Ed Hughes led 
the home team with eight tal- 
lies.

Kaps, Betas Choose New House Officers; 
Five Fraternities Still To Hold Elections 



Wednesday, Feb. 16 - Two more fraternities, the Kajis and the 
Betes, elected new slates of house officers Monday in meetings that 
extended far into the night. Tlie new hon.se Presidents are Don 
Myers '56, of the Betas, and Kim Bnrbank '56 of the KA.s. With 
these results in, 10 out of the 15 houses have now finished their 
elections. 

The Kap house relied heavily on this year's juniors to fill its 
roster. Jim Edgar and Ely Pierce were elected vice-presidents and 
Jack Ijcsher is the new Secretary. The only sophomore picked was 
Warren McOmber, who will he Treasurer. In the Beta house, the 
only Junior chosen, besides President Myers, was Ted Craig, who 
will have the job of vice-president. To complete their slate, the 
Betes elected sophomores Dick Oilman as Recorder and Don Mc- 
Master as Secretary.

the RECORD, on the varsity swimming team, chairman of the 
woe's Winter Carnival ])rograin, and a JA. Myers, the iii^w Beta

Professor . . . 

cules, he explained that all metals 
have lattices of one of three types: 
face center, hexagonal center, or 
body center. 

After a brief discussion of sil- 
ver and other raetaLs. Curry spoke 
of ordinary table salt and showed 
his audience ii model of Its lat- 
tice. He described calclte or cal- 
cium carbonate and showed how 
its lattice differed from salt and 
how there is a relation between the 
properties of a compound and its 
lattice. In speakins! of Braphitc 
and diamonds, Curry pointed out 
that althouBh chemically speakinu 
they are identical, the lattice 
structure is different which ac- 
counts for the different properties 
of the two substances. He said 
that Van der Waals forces or very 
weak forces hold the graphite mol- 
ecule together. 

Profit in Pure Researcli 

In concluding, the speaker spoke 
of some complicated compounds 
and some amorphous states of 
solids. Curry also discussed com- 
plicated silicates, giving examples 
of three types feldspar, asbestos, 
and mica, rubber, and cellulose. He 
told of the direction in which 
crystallography was moving, of 
the study of catalysts, of the field 
of biochemistry and the study of 
proteins, and of the study of virus. 
Curry closed his lecture with the 
thought that "pure research 
should not be stifled" that we 
should not direct all efforts to 
practical knowledge because it is 
throuah "pure research" that 
some of the greatest contributions 
have been made to modern science. 

This faculty lecture series was 
originated to give members of the 
faculty, their wives, and students 
a chance to gain a broader know- 
ledge of fields of culture with 
which they have not become ac- 
quainted. Other lectures to be giv-

Promising Tenor John McCollum 
To Present Chapin Hall Concert 



Wednesday, Feb. 16 - Tonight 
in Chapin Hall the Thompson 
Concert Committee will present 
a concert by tenor John McCol- 
lum, who is well known in the 
Berkshlres for last year's highly 
successful season as lead operatic 
tenor in the Tanglewood Festival. 
Mr. McCollum will be accompanied 
on the piano by Joseph Lewis. The 
concert begins at 8:15 and is free 
of charge. 

Besides his two summers at 
Tanglewood Mr. McCollum has 
appeared as soloist with the New 
Yok Philharmonic Symphony, the 
Boston Symphony and the Phil- 
harmonic Orchestra. 

Singing was nothing but a seri- 
ous sideline to Mr. McCollum be- 
fore 1950. In that year, however, 
he won the $1000 award In the 
Atwater Kent Auditions in Los 
Angeles and decided to forsake a 
promising newspaper career to 
study music. The decision was well 
made, as his rapid rise in music 
circles and impressive list of en- 
gagements attests.

duces Jennet Jourdemayne (Bar-

seventeen with very attractive 
features. Jennet loves life and the 
beautiful world, and is in immi- 
nent danger of losing both. Men- 
dip, who has "left rings of beer 
on every alehouse table", likes 
neither life nor the world, and ex- 
presses a sincere but ignored de- 
sire to be hanged in place of the 
girl. Complications arise when the 
quick wltled Mendlp takes a se-

very haid not to do) and finds 
her charms quite desirable. Every- 
one who looks at the girl comes 
to this inevitable conclusion, as she 
represents the spirit of life and 
beauty. The plot is resolved with 
enough satiie, humorous situation, 
sparkling dialogue and secondary 
incidents i not to mention a very

ti\ (■ classes. Yankus is the first man in the history of the college to 
be returned to the presidency for four terms. 

Preliminary elections were held by the freshman class yester- 
day in an attempt to cut down the large number of candidates. 
This was done in order to insure a more decisive and representa- 
tive vote today. The original slate was sliced in half in the pre- 
oiiminary vote.

Council Progress 

In Annual Report 



Committee Heads Define 
Various Achievements 
On Campus Issues 



Monday. Feb. 14 - In its con- 
cluding session held tonight in 
Baxter Hall the College Council 
unanimously accepted a report 
submitted by President Bill Mont- 
gomery reviewing the accomplish- 
ments and failures of the CO dur- 
ing the past year. Prior to the 
acceptance of the Montgomery Re- 
port the Council heard Tom Ward 
'55 and Larry Frank '55 relate the 
'progress being made by their re- 
spective committees, the Athletic 
and Cut Committees. The Council 
recommended that these commit- 
tees, as well as the groups working 
with Dave Sterling '55 on dormi- 
tory hours and constitutional re- 
vision, continue to function under 
the succeeding Council. 

Noteworthy among the achieve- 
ments listed by the Montgomery 
Report was the realization of the 
purpose of the newly created 
Council, which is to bring about 
more "effective campus action". 
All CC meetings are open to any 
member of the student body, and 
open class discussions are fre- 
quently held. The report noted 
that, although it is too early to 
determine the value of the policy 
of "total opportunity," It Is sig- 
nificant that no fraternity has de- 
parted from the Williams scene 
and only eight sophomores were 
unable to obtain bids. 

Ad Hoc Committee 

Since the College Council oppos- 
ed any move that would change 
the date of rushing, it appointed 
an Ad Hoc Committee to "imple- 
ment" the college vote on the 
Weinberg petition. The failure of 
the CC to "define the limits of

Oviatt Wins 

Ted Oviatt was elected secre- 
tary-treasurer of the class of 1955, 
with the juniors selecting Bill 
Jenks. Frank Dengel '57 and Paul 
Zavorskas '58 will fill the secre- 
tary-treasurer positions in their 
classes. 

Following CC Constitution re- 
quirements, representatives were 
chosen from each class to sit on 
the College Council. Juniors Kirt 
Gardner, Don O'Brien, Kim Bur- 
bank, sophs Bob Ause, Dee Gard- 
ner and freshman Ted Wyrm 
were selected as representatives. 
Gardner will also be serving his 
fourth term as a class officer. 
Average Balloting 

According to Bill Shaw '55, bal- 
loting ran about the same as last 
year. 690 undergraduates cast 
their votes. Freshmen led again 
this year in the balloting colunm 
with 244 of the class coming to 
the polls. Seniors Were low with 
only 107 ballots cast. 

Balloting began at 9 a.m. and 
the polls were scheduled to close 
at 6 p.m. Due to early apathy 
they remained open until 8 p.m. In 
an effort to get out last minute 
votes. The stringent College Coun- 
cil election regulations were strict- 
ly observed, with students being 
required to identify themselves. 
There seemed to be some confu- 
sion in the 5-4-3-2-1 method of 
indicating preference. The final 
results were made available short- 
ly after the polls had closed. 
Seniors Elect Heppenstall 

Heppenstall, an Alpha Delt, Is 
a member of the Honor System 
Committee, the basketball and 
squash teams and was formerly 
class secretary and junior adviser. 
He also belongs to the Adelphic 
Union and is chairman of the 
Student Union Committee. 

Yankus. an Honor System Com- 
mittee member, has been president 
of the class of '56 for four years. 
He is a junior adviser, a member 
of the Spring Street Stompers. 
and a varsity baseball pitcher. 
Yankus belongs to Delta Upsilon.

Savadove Reviews AMT Drama; 
Fry Play Receives Varied Praise 

btiRobert F. Savadove 

Christopher Fry's 'The Lady's Not For Burning" is a challenge 
to both actors and directors. David C. Bryant & Co. took several 
noteworthy steps in meeting this challenge. They had to cope with 
an audience trained in a theatre of realistic drama — stringent plot 
lines and "well-made" plays. These ears are not timed to the revival 
of verse drama, and are usually a few lines behind imagery brim- 
ming with allusions from Biblical to astrological lore. Instead of 
enjoying a poetic experience, they either wait for action or look 
for deep meanings. 

The poet's theme is the language itself. Tlirough his medium, 
Fry wants to lift you from domestic reality and place you on a more 
elevated level. When the verse becomes the theme, it begins to live 
a life of its own, divorced from dramatic and theatrical aspects. 
Most of the language falls upon the lead roles, resulting in lone 
lyric monologues which make audience communication difficult 
and encourage signs of boredom. 

Quick Openini>^ 

Despite these difficulties, the AMT production was creditable 
in many ways, although the performances of Thomas Bell and Bar- 
bara Taylor were spotty imtil they got going. The play opened too 
quickly, and Bell lost some good lines until he had fully gauged 
audience reaction. Very few of his lines were recited after Act I, 
and except for an unfortunately hoarse voice in the later acts, he 
began to show the ease and fluency so necessary to a Fry drama. 
Mrs. Taylor lost much of the potential of her part imtil the last 
act. She w.ts beautifid and charming, but too blas^ and sophisti- 
cated for a girl who loved life so well and was about to lose it. If 
her opening costume had been more daring than tailored, if she 
looked younger and acted with more simplicity of natural inno-

The College Council 



Films in Review 



in elections held on Thursday, the undergraduates voted for 
their class ofticcrs and representatives who will take office on tlie 
College Council, this eoniiiig Tuesday. While there are two officers 
from tlie senior class, the twelve chosen students from the other 
three classes will probably prove more important in molding the 
form and duties of tlie CC and in leading college opinion, for tliese 
are the men who will also handle student government next year. 

The College Council which is now going out of office was fac- 
ed with many jDroblenis during its first year of existence, and these 
unforeseen tlitticulties uiatle it very hard for the CC to effectively 
delineate its sphere of authority and to really become a means ot 
expressing unuergraduate opiinoii. Therefore it will be up to these 
officers, who ha\'e just been chosen, to move ahead and accomplish 
all that was originally hoped for and expected last May. 

Though plagued with a rushing problem that it ri'ally hatl no 
jurisdiction to handle and over which it had absolutely no power 
to make a decision, the retiring CC did make a good beginning 
wiiich would indicate that this year we will make e\en greater 
stritles forward. The book slot in the library, a committee to study 
the cut sysceni, inyeasetl su|3])ort for the book exchange, the 
Little Turee student goveiiuneni; council, and the Purple Key antt 
a proposed student atnletic council are some of the accomplish- 
ments that the College Coimcil was able to achieve this term. 

Most im|)ortant, and one of the main reasons for instituting the 
College Council as the fomi of student government last s|)ring, was 
the hope of the students and the indication of the administration 
that tnis more representative form of government would command 
greater support troni the college authorities. It is only with this 
support that the CC can he truly effective. If the students feel that 
thcir wishes and their govennnent are merely ignored, then the CC 
may well lapse back to tlie apathy of the old Undergraduate Coun- 
cil. A new year for the CC is beginning. With capable and imagina- 
tive leadershiji on the |)art ot tlie students and with respect and 
support Iroin the administiation, tlie high hopes of last year for an 
eltective student government can be realized. 



Personal Slant 



by Joe Albright '5S 

The sweet strains and hot refrains of Tommy Tucker, Stan 
l\ubin, Billy Williams, the Stoinpers and even Dean Lamson have 
faded, and the only remnants of the winter houseparty are the ear- 
rings that seem to tmrn up ui odd places, and the scattered gripes. 

There is one such gripe that is worth considering, because it 
has come up after every houseparty since deferred rushing was in 
stituted two years ago: the hours when freshmen can entertain their 
dates in their rooms. This appears to be one of the recurrent trouble 
spots tliat will have to be disposed of before the freshman year can 
be as enjoyable as it was under tlie old rushing system. 

Lack of Privacy 

Under the old system the problem of women in the dormitories 
was never acute. There was no need or desire to invite girls into the 
rooms because the fraternity affairs were always more exciting 
anyway. Under the new system, tlie Student Union is supposed to 
function as a social unit for the freshmen. But, as one of the frosli 
quipped, "this arrangement is about as private as an aquarium." It 
is obvious that a new theory about room hours must be worked out 
such that the freshman class will have the social opportunities it 
used to have under the old rushing system, when there was immed 
iate rushing. 

' ''It's not that we (the Administration) think that immorality 
is impossible between those hours — it is just a little more iuconven 
-lent then." TJiis is a statement made by Dean Scott in one of the 
freshman orientation courses last September, and it is a|jparently 
the principle which the College uses to determine the hours when 
girls may he iii the dormitories. 

Privileges in Fraternities 
Back in September, the Dean's statement gained for him a 
round of applause and a burst of laughter. But after all, many fresh 
men were accustomed to prejj-school treatment tlien. By now, the 
news has filtered down that fraternity life was never like this. The 
houses have much more liberal hours; in other words, the adminis- 
tration treats up]5crclassmen in the fraternities like adults. The most

Rules or No (Cont.) 

important point, however, is that the freshmen really deserve the 
same extensive hour privileges which the upperclassnien in frater- 
nities enjoy, it only because they have been denied so many otlier 
privileges of fraternity life. 

Fourtli-l'toor Rule 
It would be gross exaggeration to say that the College made no 
efforts to give the freshmen a good time during this houseijarty. 
Jne important step taken in this direction just a few weeks ago was 
the eliinination of the ban against entertaining girls in fourth-floor 
rooms. H()we\er, the hour-rules have not been changed, and this 
is the rub. Fieshmen were not permitted to have their dates in their 
rooms after 9;30 p. m. Friday night or between 6:30 i). m. and mid- 
night on Saturday. To many freshmen, this is proof that the council 
of deans is still treating them like high school students. 

These hours are obviously designed so that freshmen have no 
choice but to go to C^ollege-sponsored functions. Last weekend, 
these included two dances and two ja// conceits within two days. 
Some people just got a little tired ot music after a while. .\nd vet, 
the dormitory rules allowed them no alternatives. As long as upper- 
classmen in trateniities enjoy .so much freedom, there is no reason 
why freshmen should be yoked with a veritable time-clock system. 
After all, there is no reason to use Victorian morals on one class and 
not the other three. 

It appears to the writer that everything would be solved if 
girls were allowed in the freshman dormitories during the same 
hours they are allowed in the fraternity houses. If Dean Scott and 
Dean Lamson were to adopt this ijrinciple they would go a long 
way toward solving the plight of the freshmen under deferred rush- 
ing. For not only would it soKe the house-party situation, but also 
it would enable the frosli to have dates uii here on off weekends, 
which the present system denies them. This adjustment seems so 
simple — maybe it is not too much to hope for in the near future.

RECORD Business Staff Sends 
Over 9000 Letters to Aliunni, 
Parents in Subscription Drive 



by Dick lUgby 

The Business Board of the RECORD, unsung heroes of that 
good, gray publication, is the scene of freii/ieil activities these days. 
I'he ",5fi Board, having just taken over the helm alter mid-semesters, 
has hanged its collective heads together and come up with what it 
hopes are iinproveinents over the ailmittedly hard to heat manage- 
ment of previous years. Initial probiiigs into the musty records dis- 
closed that Williams" iJOOO odil ahiiuni, most of whom are going 
without the competent coM'iage of the RE(X)RD, had not hi .n 
given an opportunity to subscribe since '!i'i. At present, SXXH) lett. rs 
are headed hir office desks, front hall tables, and mailboxes (and 
waste-baskets, as .some clown remarked) across the country hi ..n 
effort to remedy the situation. 

Business Manager Chip Mann '50, in close conjunction with 
Circulation antl Snliseription Mauagi'r.s Pete Urown "56 and l',d 
Schwartz '.5(), have in the processes now a letter to he sent to the 
Class of '.'59 hopeluls, as has been past policy. The parents of the 
present freshnian class were st'iit subscription blanks this fall, and 
the jireseiit management plans that sophomore and junior bill pay- 
ers will be written this spring to give them too an opportunity to 
keep tabs on their wayward sons next year. 

The substantial investment re(|uire(l to send out iKHK) or so 
printed letters, lessened by the granting of a third class mailing 
permit for the first time, is described as a calculated risk. What with 
RECORD circulation slitliug off to ().5(), it is hoped that this huge 
alimmi appeal will arrest the downward trend, 1 he letter, stressing 
the recent social changes at Williams, the impoitance of close alum- 
iii contact with these and similar developments, and the advantages, 
of course, of the ability of the RKCORU to fill this need, is expec- 
ted to be the vehicK' of ending the circulation decline. The provi- 
sions of a simple tear-out blank and, as a new wrinkle, the enciosine 
of a stamped, business rejily envelope should make the offer ol a 
special introductory rate even more inviting. 

The long discussed and iniieli debated enlarging of the REC- 
ORD to a six iiage issue is receiving further impetus this year. As 
of now, however, this inno\atioii is still in the debating stage and 
remains but a possibilitv. Ry wav of preparing for the expansion, 
and seeing if it is plausible. Ad Managers lliller>- Cans and Phil 
Palmedo, both jnniors, lia\c been busily scouring the countryside 
since taking over trying to extend the already aiu|)le local adver- 
tizing. If successful, a six page RECORD would move that much 
closer to reality. No major changes are hireseeu in advertising pol- 
icy or in the new higher <|uality paper used in the past year by the 
new board. 

Within the hustling business office, rotation and shifting of 
members to all jihases is being planned on, though it has been done 
tlieoieticalh' h)r years. Results are expected to be the better groom- 
ing of many potential business managers and the making of the 
work more meaiiingful. Nine freshman eompets have responded to 
the call this semester to assure a large enough staff to handle the 
strategic, hut behind the scenes, operations of the RECORD"s fin- 
ances.

Tankmen Face Bowdoin Today; | Purple Freshmen 
Winless Polar Bears to Combat |£dge Rpf fiye 



Eph Attempt to Notch Fifth Win 



Saturday, Feb. 19 - Seeking their 
fifth will of the season. Coach Bob 
Mulr's varsity swimmers meet a 
winless Bowdoin squad in Lasell 
pool at 2 p.m. Only three return- 
ing lettermen are on the Maine 
team that bowed to Williams, 52- 
31, last winter. 

Short of sprinters and lacking 
divers at the beginning of the 
season, Coach Bob Miller's tank- 
men were hit hard by the loss of 
this year's captain, Bob Glover, 
to the basketball team. Glover, a 
standout sprinter in the past cam- 
paign as a sophomore, has a bad 
eye condition, and doctors have 
ordered him to give up swimming. 

Latham Faces Star 

Carl Neill, who turned in a 1 :50.6 
clocking during the 1954 New Eng- 
land Championships for the 150 
yard individual medley, will face 
Eph captain Gene Latham in that 
event today. Neill and Steve Morse, 
another Bowdoin letterman, will 
probably go against breaststrokers 
Dick Beamish and Eric Gustafson. 

Williams will u.se Klrt Gardner 
and Mort Cohen in the 50 to op- 
pose the Polar Bear's third var- 
.sity veteran, Ken Biigham, and 
sophomore Glenn NlchoUs or John 
Collier. Coach Mulr's probable 
starters in the century are Gard- 
ner and John Taylor against the 
Bowdoin sprinters. 



Ski Squad Gains 
Sixth at Norwich 



Ephmen Seek Class A 

Status at Middlebury 



Saturday, Feb. 19 - Fresh from 
a sixth place in the Norwich Car- 
nival last weekend, Coach Ralph 
Townsend's skiers are now at the 
Middlebury Carnival for the Class 
A championships. Pushed into 
Class B last year by Harvard, 
whom the Ephmen beat last week- 
end, Williams will be out to gain 
the necessary eighth place or bet- 
ter to vault back to their Class A 
status. A sixth or better will en- 
able them to enter the Nationals 
this March. 

Opposing Williams will be such 
strong opposition as Middlebury, 
who won last week, Dartmouth, 
winners of their own Carnival and 
one of the best teams in the na- 
tion, Norwich, New Hampshire, 
Vermont, Harvard, and St. Law- 
rence. Pete Clark, George Olm- 
stead, Pete Elbow, Sherm Hoyt, 
Hugh Clark, Bill Prime, and Reg 
Plesner made the trip for Wil- 
liams. 

Pacing Williams at Norwich last 
week were Bill Prime, Pete Clark, 
George Olmstead. Sherm Hoyt, 
and Pete Elbow.

In Crucial Amherst Tilt 



THE MAIL BAG 

If the spirit should ever move you to write me a letter-and 
it's always a pleasure to hear from you-take pen and paper and 
address me c/o Philip Morris, 100 Park Ave., New York 17, N. Y. 
Or if you don't have any paper, snap open your Snap-Open 
pack of Philip Morris, remove the fine vintage cigarettes, turn 
the neat brown wrapper inside out and use it for stationery. 
The regular size Philip Morris pack is perfect for short notes. 
For longer letters use the king size pack. For chain letters and 
petitions, glue several packs together. 

This week's column is devoted to a few of the many interest- 
ing letters that have been coming in: 

SIR: 

Maybe you can help me. I came up to college eight years ago. 
On my very first day I got into a bridge game at the Students 
Union. I am still in the same bridge game. I have never gone to 
a class, cracked a book, or paid any tuition. All 1 do is play bridge. 

To explain my long absence and keep the money coming from 
home, I told a harmless little lie. I said I was in medical school. 
This made Dad (my father) very proud. It also enabled me to 
keep playing bridge. We were both terribly happy. 

But all good things must come to an end. Mine ended last 
week when I was home for spring vacation. I arrived to find that 
Sister (my sister) was in the hospital with an ingrown spleen. 
Dr. Norbert Sigafoos, the eminent ingrown spleen surgeon, was 
scheduled to operate, but unfortunately he was run over by a 
hot-food cart on the way to the scrubbing room. 

"Oh, never mind," chuckled Dad (my father). "Harlow (me) 
will fix Sister (my sister)." 

Well sir, what could I do? If I told the truth I would make a 
laughingstock out of Dad (my father) who had been bragging 
about me all over town. Also I would get yanked out of school 
which would be a dirty shame just when I am getting to under- 
stand the weak club bid. 

There was nothing for it but to brazen it out. I got Sister 
(my sister) apart all right, but I must confess myself com- 
pletely at a loss as to how to put her back together again. Can 
you suggest anything? They're getting pretty surly around here. 
Harlow Protein 

Dear Harlow, 

Inclerd I do have a solution for you — the solution that has never 
failed me whenever things close in: Light up a Philip Morris! 
Knots untie as you pulT that rich vintage tobacco. Shade becomes 
light as you taste that mild fragrant flavor . . . And as you watch 
the pure white smoke drift lazily upward, you will know that 
nothing is as bad as it seems, that it is always darkest before the 
dawn, and that the man worthwhile is the man who can smile! 



Wednesday, Feb. 16 - Yesterday 
the freshman basketball team edg- 
ed the R.P.I, freshmen by a score 
of 66-65. 1'he Little Ephs were pac- 
ed by Marv Welnstein with 24 
points. The yearlings had to bat- 
tle back from a 31-27 deficit at 
the half In order to eke out then- 
one point victory. In the first half 
the f rosh were behind by as much 
as 12 points. The tide turned for 
the Ephmen when they put on a 
full court press after falling be- 
hind, which eventually enabled 
them to gain the final nod. The 
frosh margin of victory proved to 
Be Dave Allen's two foul shots 
which gave Williams a three point 
lead before R.P.I, connected for 
two more points and the game 
ended with Williams in possess- 
ion of a one point victory. The 
starters for Williams were Bob 
Kingsbury, Ed Hughes, Weinstein, 
Allen, and Ben Hull. 

This afternoon, at Deerfield, 
the Williams freshman swimming 
team went down to defeat against 
Deerfield Academy by a score of 
40-35. The meet was close with 
Deerfield clinching the meet be- 
fore the last two events were com- 
pleted. The only three firsts the 
yearling swimmers garnered were 
captured by Bob Seveiance and 
Eivan Williams. Severance nailed 
down the 50 yard and the 100 yard 
tree-style. Williams won the 100 
yard back stroke event. 

Also this afternoon, in a game 
played partially in the snow, the 
Williams freshman hockey team 
defeated Hoichkiss 5-0. The frosh, 
as they pleased, maintained their 
undefeated status, and brought 
tlieir record to six victories. In 
today's game the yearlings out- 
shot the visitors 36 to 12. Williams 
took the lead for good in the first 
period when Dave Cook scored on 
a pass from Rich Lombard. 



SIR: 

Here is a rather amusing coincidence that may amuse your 
readers. 

Just off the campus where I go to school there is a lake called 
Lake Widgiwagan where students from time immemorial have 
gone fishing. Thirty years ago when my father was an under- 
graduate here he went fishing one day at Widgiwagan and 
dropped his Deke pin into the water. Though he dived for it for 
many weeks, he never recovered it. 

Just yesterday-thirty years later, mind you-I went fishing 
at Widgiwagan. I caught a four pound bass. When I got the fish 
home and opened it up, what do you think I found inside of it? 

You guessed it! Two tickets to the Dempsey-Firpo fight.

Powerful Shawmen Win Another;

Symons Replaces Mora 
As Cullen Sets Pace 
For Undefeated Ephs 



By Bob Fishback 

Wednesday, Feb. 15 - Control- 
ling the backboards, Williams re- 
mained undefeated and rolled up 
its 14th consecutive win tonight by 
downing Rensselaer Polytechnical 
Institute, 80-64. Coach Al Shaw's 
quintet overcame a 13-4 deficit 
and held at least an 11 point mar- 
gin for the rest of the game. 

Deadly set shots and drives for 
23 markers by sophomore guard 
Bill Cullen brought the Ephmen 
back into the contest after the 
loser-.i jumped out to early leads 
of 6-0 and 8-2. Ron Wilson and 
Bob Buss collected 31 rebounds 
and 31 points between them while 
Wally Jensen picked up 16 count- 
ers and center Jim Symons hit 
for ten.

men pulled within 11 points of 
Williams at 65-54 with nine min- 
utes remaining in the contest, but 
Wilson. Cullen and Jensen con- 
nected to eliminate the R.P.I, 
threat. A 16 point output in the 
first half and outstanding work 
under the boards by the 6' 5" Wil- 
son paved the way for an Eph vic- 
tory. 

Against a Purple man-to-man 
defense, Sec DeCecco and Pete 
Cassella led the R.P.I, five in the 
opening minutes, but Coach Shaw's 
switch to the zone bottled up Rens- 
selaer's attack. The home team hit 
on five of their first seven shots 
from the floor before the Ephmen 
closed the initial period on a scor- 
ing spree that netted 16 points to 
the loser's one marker. 

Cullen Faces Attack 

Sinking 11 out of 20 and bucket- 
ing 11 points in the third iiuarter, 
Cullen set the scoring pace for 
the winners, while DeCecco picked 
up 21 in a losing cause. Both Jen- 
sen and Cullen picked off several 
stray passes by R.P.I, and drove 
all the way as Williams used the 
fast break with success. 

Grabbing off six rebounds and 
playing good defensive ball, Jim 
Symons filled in capably for Tony 
Moro. who had a slight case of the 
flu. Buss hit the nets on six out 
eleven shots for a dozen points, 
while Andy Santos and Tom 'White 
saw limited action.

Wednesday, Feb. 16 - Playing 
a rugged team of Cadets at West 
Point, the Williams hockey squad 
went down to defeat by a 2-0 
score. In dropping the contest, the 
Ephs fell to the .500 mark, with 
five wins against an identical 
number of reverses. The Purple 
were able to put up a strong de- 
fense which was not broken 
through until 18:17 of the second 
period when Army's Ed Wilkinson 
ripped one into the nets. 
Marr Excels 
Eph goalie, Dick Marr made an 
impressive showing in the first 
period, staving off 12 cadet at 
tempts to score. The Ephs kept up 
an impressive attack in the first 
two periods, forcing Army's Jim 
Lueders to make twenty saves. 
However, the Williams' defense 
and offense seemed to fall apart 
in the late stages of the second 
period when the West Pointers 
notched their first tally. In the 
final period, the pucksters from 
Williams were unable to get off 
more than three shots at the op- 
ponents' goal. The final tally of 
the game came at 13:08 of the 
final period when Army's BUI 
Hlckey shot one past Marr. 

The Ephs will attempt to climb 
above the .500 mark this Saturday, 
playing host to the Providence 
Hockey team. 



By Stu Auerbach 

Saturday, Feb. 19 - With its 
victory streak stretched to 14 
games, the unbeaten Eph basket- 
ball team will face one of its se- 
verest tests of the year when It 
faces arch Little Three rival Am- 
herst in the Pratt Field house to- 
night. The word down at Amherst 
is "we can do it". They are sure 
chey can defeat Williams on then' 
iiome court. 

Bowdoin coach Ed Coombs, an 
impartial observer whose team was 
trounced by Williams and Amherst 
on successive nights, called the 
game "a toss-up between two 
good small college teams". He 
said that even though Wil- 
liams will have a height 
advantage on paper, Doug Haw- 
kins, the Jeff's ace rebounder, 
really gets up on those boards. 
Jeff's Fine Record 

In the general excitement about 
the Ephs undefeated record, the 
only one in the nation, the fact 
that Amherst sports a fine 14-3 
record to press date, including two 
wins and one loss in the Christmas 
New England tournament has 
been forgotten. Amherst, however, 
was upset by Wesleyan 62-58 and 
defeated in overtime by Sprmg- 
field 82-73. Both Wesleyan and 
Springfield are victims of the Eph's 
attack. 

A strong point in the over-all 
team play of Amherst is their fine 
defense. They are rated the num- 
ber one defensive team among the 
small colleges of the nation with 
an average of 56.9 points permitted 
per game, according to the latest 
NCAA listings. 

Moro Big Factor 

The health of Williams' tall cen- 
ter Tony Moro will be a big factor 
in the game. Moro missed the RPI 
game on Tuesday because of an 
attack of the flu. The big question 
is whether Moro can recover his 
full strength for the game after 
his battle with the weakening bug. 
Otherwise the Ephs will go into 
the game in full strength, bolstered 
by the return to the squad of 
Herbie Smith, out since the Rhode 
Island game in early December 
with a badly dislocated ankle. 

The Amherst offense will likely 
be keyed to the play of two men; 
Hawkins, and Pete Scott. Hawkins, 
who stands 6' 5", will have to bat- 
tle 6' 7" Moro under the boards, 
as well as fighting off the other 
Eph big men, 6' 4" Ron Wilson 
and Bob Buss. Scott will have to 
be extra sharp on his outside set 
shots. Hawkins is averaging 18.4 
points per game while Scott aver- 
ages 15 points per game. 
Amherst Lineup 

Rounding out the rest of the 
Jeff's lineup will be captain Jerry 
Benson, Dick Anderson, and Bud 
Allen, with Clark Rumrill the 
chief substitute. Benson teams up 
nicely with Scott to form a good 
backcourt combination that can 
set, drive, and set up plays. Allen 
and Anderson will be able to help 
Hawkins under the boards.

Scott Wood took his match by 
a 3-1 margin, while Ned Heppen-

make the score 4-1. John Wlerds- 
ma was the other unsuccessful 
Eph, losing 3-1 to Sidler ot the

also victorious for Williams. 



Wednesday, Feb. 18 - Twenty- 
six students left Williams at the 
end of the first semester, accord- 
ing to official figures released from 
the registrar's office. With two re- 
entering students, one to the class 
of 1955, and one to the class of 
1956, plus one addition to the 
Sophomore class, the total enroll- 
ment ot the undergraduate body 
stands at 1038 members, as of 
Feb. 3. 

Compared with last year this 
mid-semester drop shows an In- 
crease of ten students, and is the 
largest group to leave in three 
years. 

Of those students who resigned, 
one from each class left Williams 
to Join the armed forces and two 
transferred. The breakdown by 
classes shows six members of the 
class of 1955 leaving and one re- 
turning, leaving a total of 265 
Seniors. The Juniors lost six and 
gained one, giving 246 total mem- 
bership. Five Sophomores left 
school, brmglng the number down 
to 253. The Freshman class now 
stands at 274, six less than the or- 
iginal enrollment.

Meeting Started Yesterday 

Though the activities will move

one of the two meetings a year 
held by this committee which con- 
ducts alumni business. 

Included among some of the mi- 
nor events which will affect only 
a small number of alumni are 
some Fraternity dinners this 
evening and a meeting of the A- 
lumni House committee tomorrow 
at 10 a.m. 

For the benefit of those alumni 
and guests who wish to attend 
classes, schedules of Saturday and 
Monday lectures have been posted 
in Jesup, Hopkins, the Alumni 
House, and the Williams Inn. Mr. 
Hall has announced that all classes 
In session will welcome Alumni, 
parents, and wives as guests this

and a deliberate style of oftenst 
that should do much to slow the 
Kphs' fast break down. One rea- 
son for the Jeff's fine defensive 
record is their possession offense 
which doesn't allow the other 
team to do much scoring. 

iCphs' Varied Offemie 

Williams' offense can switch 
from a blistering fast break to a 
deliberate style designed to set up 
screens and work a man free to 
drive under for an easy layup. 
And If this falls, either Wally 
Jensen or Bill Cullen have the 
ability to hit on set shots. Jen- 
sen has a good .set, one-hander, 
or Jump shot. To top It off, both 
are good drivers. 

Heavy scorer for the Ephs is 
Wilson, averaging 20.3 points i.or 
game. A strong miin under boih 
boards, Wilson gels many of his' 
points on tap-Ins. He also gets 
that one step on his man to drive 
in for easy lay-ups. Moro Is tlie 
leading rebounder and second high 
scorer with a 16 point average, 
Both Moro and Wilson have ac- 
curate short sets. Buss has been 
off on his shooting the past few 
games, but plays a good rebound- 
ing and floor game. 

As If the team needed any other 
reason for victory besides the 
tense Little Three rivalry between 
the two schools, they know that 
they must preserve the clean slate 
if they arc going to receive any 
consideration for either the Na- 
tional Invitation Tournament or 
the NCAA tournament after the 
season closes. They will also be 
out to gain revenge for the t«o 
defeats inflicted upon them by 
the Jeffs last year.

for the positions of alumni trus- 
tee and Tyn(4 Committee, the 
weekend was closed on Sunday 
mornini! with an address by Pro- 
fe.ssor Paul J. Tlllich in the 
Thompson Memorial Chapel. 

The bit! event of the weekend 
was the Alumni-Father and Son 
Luncheon in Baxter Hall Satur- 
day, at which President James P. 
Baxter 3rd presented alumni and 
student awards. Charles B. Hall 
of Grace Court and a member 
of the Class of 1915 received the 
RoBerson Cup and Award, awarded 
annually to the alumnus or se- 
nior of outstanding merit, for ser- 
vice and loyalty to the College and 
for distinction in any field of en- 
deavor. 

Mr. Hall 

Mr. Hall has long been active 
in Williams affairs. Executive .sec- 
retary of the alumni fund since 
1950 and alumni .secretary since 
1951. he has .seen contributions 
rise from about $60,000 in 1950 
to a record hinh this year of 
$194,198. He was also chairman 
of the 2 and one-half million dol- 
lar buildiUM and endowment fund 
drive in 1947-50 and is past Pre- 
sident of the Gargoyle Alumni 
Association and the Society of 
Alumni.

to Paul Quinn '55. as the out- 
standing member of the soccer 
team, and the Brooks Medal to 
Tim Hanan '56, a.s the member of 
the football team whose playing 
reflected greatest credit to the col- 
lege during the past .season. The 
Rockwood Tennis Cup, usually 
given at this time, will be award-

Du Vai '52 to Address 

Pre-Ministry Students 



Wednesday. Feb. 23 - This Sun- 
day. February 27. Bill Du Val 
'52. currently studying at the Un- 
ion Theological Seminary, will 
speak at the election meeting of 
the Washington Gladden Society. 
Bill has done a lot of work while 
at seminary In the East Harlem 
Pi'otestant Parish, a well-known 
religious and social center in the 
heart of the New York slum dis- 
trict. 

Last summer Du Val was a mem- 
ber of the planning committee for 
the meeting of the World Council 
of Churches at Evanston. Illinois. 

American Field .Service Volunteer 

Du Val entered Williams in 1942. 
but left in December of that year 
to join the Volunteer American 
Field Service. He spent 28 months 
overseas, mostly with the 14th 
British Army in the Burma-India 
sector, as an ambulance driver, 
liaison and finance officer. He was 
discharged in November 1945 as 
a First Lieutenant with three me- 
dals. 

After a year with an oil com- 
pany in India Bill decided to en- 
ter the ministry and came back to 
Williams to prepare for seminary. 
He and his wife Nancy, who was 
Dean Brooks' secretary for a year, 
will be remembered by many se- 
niors. 



Billiard Champion 
Peterson to Visit 
Baxter Hall Again 

Popular Trick-shot Star 
Returns for Exhibition, 
Instruction Session 



Statement Hits Trustees 



Committee Selects 
Five as Members 



Wednesday. Feb. 23 - The wizard 
of the billiard table. Charles C. 
Peterson, who made such a suc- 
cessful appearance here last year, 
will be in the Student Union Fri- 
day and Saturday. This season 
makes the twenty-fifth annual 
tour of colleges and universities 
by the cue artist whose trade mark 
is: "Show me a billiard shot I 
can't make." 

On both days Peterson will give 
shows at 1:30 and 7:30 p.m. Start- 
ing at 2:30 in the afternoon Pe- 
terson will give individual instruc- 
tion to groups of five for periods 
of forty-five minutes each. After 
the evening show there are three 
more of these periods for indivi- j 
dual lessons. 

Trick Shot Artist 

Peterson's exhibitions will in- 
clude not only his mastery of the 
trickiest shots in the ivory sport, 
but also a demonstration of the 
fundamentals of the game. 

The holder of the world's fancy 
shot title draws his artistry from 
a repertoire of more than a thou- 
sand shots, gathered in the course 
of many years. The most spectacu- 
lar, perhaps, is the "silver dollar" 
shot, in which he used a silver dol- 
lar instead of a billiard ball. 

Enthusiastic about his appear- 
ances before men and women in 
the college group, Peterson believes 
that billiards is a game for relax- 
ation after the class room and is 
confident that new stars in the 
sport will emerge from college men 
and women who learn the game 
while in school.

Under this heading, such men as Ileraclitns, The .Sophists, Pvtliaf;-

The title of Professor Crawfoid's talk tomorrow m'ght will he 
"Our Direction." .Vs he admits, this is oidv a vague description of 
his subject. This collo(nnmn. which ireuerallv treats more j^eneral 
sid)jects and draws more people than the Pliilo.sopliy Collocpiia. will 
(pu'stion and analyze the recent tieiids in .\merica which seem to be 
leading its people down an ouiiuous |)ath. 

In the opinion of Professor Ciawlord. although oin- country 
alleges to be a peaceful nation, it is getting i)rogressivelv more and 
more militarized. Thoiigh America professes to he a democracy, the 
United States always picks its allies from the totalitarian coimtries 
such as Ciuataniala, Spain and Konnosa. And this is a development 
that goes much deeper than just politics. Professor Caawfoid feels. 
Dr. Mijcrs { Iripudlcs Itlca 

Tlie original idea of holding Colhxpiia was introduced hv Dr. 
Myers of the Philosophy denartnieut three veais ago. Diiring the 
first year, the discussions all dealt with formal philosophy. Last 
year, his original idea branched out into two diiections. The philo- 
.sophy di.scussions continued on their iireseut scale, but the "Wil- 
liams Collo(iuium" aiosc, a new oiganization which dealt with 
broader and more universal subjects. 



Wednesday. Feb. 23 - On Fri- 
day, Feb. 8. the WiUiams College 
Jewish Association presented a 
lecture on "The Meaning of Jew- 
ish History" by Mr. Maurice Samu- 
el. Mr. Samuel is the author of a 
number of books on Jewish his- 
tory, the most well known of which 
are The Gentleman and the Jew 
and The Great Hatred. In his lec- 
ture, he traced the history and the 
spiritual development of the Jew- 
ish religion, pointing out paral- 
lels between the present day situa- 
tion and similar ones in history. 

Samuel divided Jewish history 
into three major epochs, or stages: 
past history, consisting of two peri- 
ods, and contemporary history, 
which began with the formation of 
the state of Israel. The first period 
of two thousand years marks the 
development and refinement of 
the Bible. It was in this period that 
the Jews were occupied with em- 
pire-building and material devel- 
opment. 

Period of Destruction 

Following this period was an 
age of destruction and turmoil for 
the Jewish people. Torn by ex- 
ternal aggression as well as in- 
ternal division, they were in Jeo- 
pardy of extinction: yet they were 
held together by their common ex- 
perience and spiritual strength, 
centered in the Bible. 

With the formation of the state 
of Israel, the Jewish people again 
have an empire, although it, a- 
lonB with the rest of the world, 
rests under the threat of atomic 
warfare. Mr. Samuel believes that 
the possibility of annihilation will 
prevent a third world war. but 
that peace must come from a de- 
sire for peace, not from worldwide 
fear of war. 



Wednesday. Feb. 23 - The Wil- 
liams Lecture Committee has an- 
nounced the election of five new 
members to its ranks: Tony Smith 
'57, Henry Ba.ss '57. Charlie Simp- 
kinson '57. Howard De Long '57, 
and Tom Frohock '56. 

At the same time. Eric Gustaf- 
son '55, chairman of the commit- 
tee, disclosed the list of future 
speakers, their topics, and the 
dates on which they will lecture. 

Leading the list will be Barbara 
Ward Jackson, author of The West 
at Bay and most recently. Faith 
and Freedom. She will talk on 
"The Challenge of Coexistence" on 
March 9. 

Patrick B. McGinnis. president 
of the New York. New Haven, and 
Hartford Railroad, will present 
a lecture on "How to Win a Cor- 
poration" on the nth of March. 
Spring Lectures 

On March 14, Sir Reader Bul- 
lard, former British Ambassador 
to Iran, author of Britain and the 
Middle East, and presently Direc- 
tor of the Institute of Colonial 
Studies at Oxford University, will 
lecture about "The Middle East 
and Democracy". 

After spring vacation, at a time 
not yet definite. RusseU Kirk, au- 
thor of The Conservative Mind and 
also Program for Conservatives, 
and a leading exponent in the 
United States of "the new conser- 
vatism," will talk on the subject 
to be dealt with in nis new book, 
"Conservative Action". 

The committee is now in the 
process of planning its program 
for next fall and will welcome any 
suggestions from the students or 
faculty. These suggestions can be 
given to any member of the com- 
mittee.

Brush Questions College Policies 
Concerning Fraternity Functions 

Monday. Feb. 21 - The Fraternity Treasurers' (Jonncil today 
received the following coinineut by |eronie W. brush concerning 
the fact that se\eral fraternities have agieed to let the college di- 
rectlv handle all their board bills and book-keeping incidental to 
inairjtaiuiug :i kitclK'u: 

.■\s cliairnian ol the suhconnniltee on Fiaternit)' Dining Service, 
appointed by the (iraduate (^onnnittee of Williams College Social 
Units. 1 have been asked by the 1{ECX)HD to comment on the fact 
that certain fraternities have agreed to let the college bill house 
members lor board. 

O Initially this service was offered 

to all groups by the treasurer of 
the college, in all good faith, at 
a joint meeting of the Graduate 
Committee and of the heads of 
the houses in New York in the 
spring of 1953. I know that the 
treasurer neither had nor has any 
wish or intention to take over this 
portion of the fraternity's auto- 
nomy at the present time. 

One of the many benefits of a 
fraternity is the experience it 
gives to its members in adminis- 
tering its financial affairs. Such 
experience is just another positive 
contribution that fraternities can 
make towards building their mem- 
bers, usefulness for life after grad- 
uation. 

For these reasons and as a re- 
sult of recent developments fra- 
ternity-wise at Williams, which I 
will discuss later, I believe it; 
would be unwise for the fraterni- 
ties to cede to the college their 
function of billing their members 
for the board. 

The recent action on the defer- 
red rushing question appears to 
me to be arbitrary and unstudied, 
in spite of the protestations made 
to the contrary in the memoran- 
dum to Uie president dated Jan- 
uary 24, 1955. 

It seems inconceivable that a 
mature group, such as the Board 
of Trustees, in the face of the re- 
sults of the various votes and the 
documents before them, including 
"a commentary on that report 
I Ad Hoc Committee) by a faculty 
committee" could possibly reach 
such a hasty conclusion on a seg- 
ment so important to vital seg- 
ments of the Williams family un- 
less the decision was steam roller- 
ed. Usually an important delibera- 
tive group would at least appoint 
a subcommittee to consider fur- 
ther the wide divergence of view- 
points. The record of the issue, now 
confused, might be clarified by 
the publication of this mysterious 
commentary by a faculty commit- 
tee on the Ad Hoc report, which 
commentary apparently was the 
decision determining document in 
the case. 

With this background of con- 
fusion and with a decision alarm- 
ing to many alumni throughly fa- 
miliar with the whole situation, 
one can easily see how some of 
those administrative authorities, 
who seem bent on destroying the 
Williams fraternity system, could 
presumably obtain an unwarrant-

Wednesday. Feb. 16 - This even- 
ing the Newman Club held its an- 
nual elections. Buzz Robinson '56. 
was chosen president; Bob Mento 
'57. vice-president: and Denny 
Doucette '58. secretary-treasurer. 

Robinson was vice-president last 
year and is coach of the Greylock 
School basketball team, a Newman 
Club project. Mento directed the 
recent Newman Club Communion 
Breakfast. Doucette played fresh- 
man football and is assisting Ro- 
binson with the Greylock team. 

Plans for the Future Discussed 

The new officers appointed J. A. 
Donovan '56 publicity director, 
and made plans for a board of di- 
rectors, which is to consist of a 
representative from each house, 
the freshman class, and the Non- 
Affiliates. Plans for the near fu- 
ture include a dinner-dance with 
the Vassar Newman Club, and the 
possibility of holding future meet- 
ings at the Williams Inn. 

Plans were also made to send 
a sizable delegation to the Newman 
Club Province Convention in April 
and to have a Jesuit lecture on the 
topic "An Answer to Secular Phil- 
osophy". 



Associate Prof. William Gates 



Wednesday. Feb. 23 - Rarely has 
Williams College seen a member 
of its faculty with a more in- 
triguing, diversified, and valuable 
past than Associate-professor Wil- 
liam B. Gates Jr. '39. BA. MA. 
PhD. Having been in almost every 
corner of the globe. Professor 
Gates would probably be as pro- 
ficient an expert in international 
relations as he is in the field of 
economics. 

A native of Indianapolis, Doctor 
Gates first attended college at the 
University of Geneva, where he 
spent his first year. He then jour- 
neyed back to the United States, 
to that small, well-known liberal 
arts College in Williamstown, 
Mass. 

Treasury Position 

Graduating from Williams In 
1939. where he was a member of 
Phi Camma Delta, he entered the 



University of Chicago to obtain 
his MA. Professor Gates majored 
in economics at Williams, and 
delved into economic history at 
Chicago. 

In 1941 Professor Gates held a 
position with the Treasury De- 
partment of the Federal Govern- 
ment in Washington. He worked in 
tlie general field of tax research, 
specializing in the relations of 
state and local taxes as opposed to 
Federal taxes. 

Uncle Sam 

Just as almost everyone had to 
serve in World War II, Professor 
Gates was no exception: he en- 
tered the Navy in 1942 as an en- 
sign in the supply corps. His first 
assignment was overseas, where he 
held the position of paymaster of 
a squadron of minesweepers a- 
round Iran. 

More and more ships and less 
and less paymasters began to pour 
into the Mediterranean, until Pro- 
fessor Gates was paymaster of

Fred Farreau and Fred Prentice, 
managers of the Swift Company 
in this area, will give a demonstra- 
tion of meat-cutting before the 
Fraternity Treasurer's Council. 
These two men will cut a beef and 
a lamb carcass, and lecture as to 
the comparative advantage and 
cost of cutting meat in that par- 
ticular way. 

There is an innovation in the 
cuisine of the Student Union. Ev- 
ery Wednesday night there Is a 
"gourmet's table" at which are 
served individual plates not usual- 
ly offered. Last week Herring Sour, 
broccoli hoUalndaise, breast of 
chicken on ham, and Baked Alas- 
kan was the menu. 

The menu is announced on Mon-

DEFEAT 



Volume LXIX 



February 23, 1955 



Number 5 



Editorial 

To Mr. Brush 



Recently several fraternities decided to permit the collej^o ad- 
ministration to handle the billing of their members; this step was 
in accord with a clause in the orij;iiial contract which the houses 
signed when they decided to go into the Fraternity Dining Service, 
lliis action of the undergraduates has greatly aroused the alumni 
as was seen in a statement from Jerome \V. Brush, the chairman 
of the alumni sub-committee on t DS. And rightfully so. 

One of the "positive contributions" that fraternities make at 
Williams is that jireviously all billing was handled by the house 
treasurers and the fraternities were completely autonomous finan- 
cially. With deferred rushing, FDS was instituted to cut down on 
the cost of living in fraternities. This was the first step in the col- 
lege "s being involved in house finances. 

Now, however, the administration is jilayiiig an even greater 
role in the economic control of the houses. Brush attacks this new 
development as being largely a plot of the administration. It vvoidd 
be better if his charges were made against the students themselves. 
Admittedly, the administration is willing to accept the job of billing 
and admittedly this is an infringement on fraternity autonoiny, but 
it was rcH|uested by the house treasurers. They are at fault. 

This assumjjtion of fraternity rights occurred at the request of 
some treasurers who apparently felt that it was expedient for the 
college to take over this duty. Tliere is no question that this decision 
is bad for the autonomy of the fraternity system at Williams, but it 
was made by a couple of the houses and not by the college admin- 
istration. 

In his general attack on the administration, Brush brought up 
deferred rushing. While we feel that there is little direct coimection, 
we will try to answer these charges. 

In exiilaining his disaj^iiroval of the college's handling frater- 
nity billing, Brush referred to the "background of confusion" at 
Williams. Elaborating, he attacked the Trustees' decision to main- 
tain deferred rushing as "arbitrary and unstudied", a "hasty conclu- 
sion" in which the decision may well have been "steamrollered". 
Tlie RECORD board also was disappointed by the Trustees' de- 
cision, as were most of the student body at Williams and apparently 
many of the alumni. 

We do not feel, however, that this decision was either arbitrary 
or unstudied. Wliile they did not set up a sub-committee to fiuther 
review the rushing system, they had spent many months carefully 
considering the plan before instituting it in 1953. Obviously they 
felt that only a one-year trial was not sufficient to find out if the 
system would work. 

The final jioint in Brush's stateinent was that there are soine 
administrative authorities bent on destroying the Williams frater- 
nity system. This we doubt. It seems to us that as FDS is successful 
and as the fraternities grow financially stronger, then the chances 
of communal eating decrease. Cominunal eating would destroy the 
system that has made Williaius strong and would reduce us to 
Amherst's level. The fraternities' recent choice for college billing 
is a step in that direction.

Raucous laughing, cheering, jeering rings forever as you slip from

senseless kind, foolish, idiotic, mocking disaster to 

life and pride. 
Numbness which shrujrs Ha shoulders and profoiniilly (piips, 
"It's all in hin, tomorrow we'll live again. " 

But tomorrow never comes. 
The novocain fades from our soul. 

Feeling returns, tainted with confusion, the embryo of bate. 
C'onhisioii nia— tiires in a second to blistering inferno, crackling 
sizzling, coughing, riddled with explosions ol profanity, spontan-

The heat of madness pounds yoin' bodv, vour legs, the bleachers 
Your fingers snap, teeth grind, hainitetl eyes stare, and the thimiing 
streak ot red-white flaming anger penetrates far before it is 
smothered by a heavy cloud of iceeold lead — Despair. 

Inevitably, irresistably it rolls in, aiinibilating our half-

It saturates your body, pollutes vour resomces — spins von about

Shouting, jabbering sounds retiuu and Anger cinls Its upper lip

AS I SEE IT 



by Bill {hiillen 

Our major sports in America are spectator sports. This means 
iuueh more than the mere presence of an audience; our sports are 
truly ones of audience participation. With an active audience there 
has developed in America a standard of sportsmanship that has al- 
teretl the traditional ethics of the teiniis courts. This new standard 
is constantly being attacked by the more conservative members of 
our society. 

Comments have appeared on Williams" basketball programs to 
the effect that spectators should limit their noise to praise of their 
own team. With this "black and white" view ot spectator conduct 
1 nmst disagree. One glory of spectator sports and test of a player's 
skill is the performance under the psychological pressure that the 
fans proviile. 

1 do not give blanket approval to all comments we hear at to- 
day's basketball games. Many fans have become too personal in 
their "riding" of the opposition. But the majority ot shouts that hav(! 
been criticized do not fall in the bad taste category. The- noise has 
become as much a part ol the game as the shooting, passing, and 
defending. 

On the whole, Williams' jnen have kept their coninu'iits in gooii 
taste. Opposing stars are ehi'cred by I'.phmen when they are taken 
out or foul out of the game. Whether the cheers are yells of glee or 
an appreciation of fine play, the net lesult at houu' basketball games 
has i)eeu good. The booing ol visiting players that has become iio- 
tici'able at many New iMigland schools has been absent at the La- 
sell Cym. The line between good and bad taste for spectators has 
become e.\tremely precarious with .America's aiiilienee participation 
sports. The test of good conduct has become great; never let it br 
said that Williams failed to meet that ti'st.

THE BULL SESSION 

I wonder if they .still make bull sessions the way they used 
to. Well do I remember the bull sessions of my own undergrad- 
uate day.s. How cogent they were! How informative! How the 
good talk crackled and our young hearts leaped and the hours 
sped by as swiftly as minutes! 

Our discussions were always led by Jack Femur. (Good old 
Jack! I hear he's in the extruded aluminum game now. i We 
would sit cross-logged in a circle around Jack and he would fill 
his pipe with his own private blend - burley, latakia, and shred- 
ded coconut. The rest of us preferred tobacco, .so we would li(fht 
up Philip Morris. This is a procedure I recommend without qual- 
ification to everyone who prefers tobacco because Philip Morris 
has the tobacco that tobacco-prcferera prefer the most mild 
vintage leaf with a clean, cool flavor that soothes and steadies, 
that gladdens and enlivens and refreshes. 

Jack would puff' on his pipe and we would puff on our 
Philip Morris and the bull-session would begin its meandering 
journey. The talk would touch on every sub.iect known to man, 
on every conceivable thuig l)encath the sun, but no matter how 
far the conversation wandered, it would always return to "Topic 
A." I refer, of course, to gardening. 

But, as I say, the discussion would cover many subjects before 
it came to the inevitable gardening. Jack would open each session 
with a provocative i|uestion of a general nature, like: "What's 
the most important thing a man can get out of college?" 

"Girls," Harold (Clavicle would reply promptly. (Good old 
Harold! I hear he's in the frozen lobster tail game now. I 

"No, I don't think so," Ren Fil)ula would say. "I think edu- 
cation is the most important thing you get out of college." 
(Good old Hen! He's still in school.) 

"Listen, guys, I've got a question," Clyde Ilium would say. 
"If you could spend a week either with Ava Gardner or with 
Albert Einstein, which would .vou choose?" (Good old Clyde! I 
hear he's in the unclaimed freight game now.) 

"Albert Einstein, of course," Will Mandible would say. (Good 
old Will! I hear he's in the jack handle game now.) 

"What?" Cleanth Patella would cry, astonished. "You would 
rather spend a week with Albert Einstein than with Ava 
Gardner?" (Good old Cleanth! I hear he's in the unclaimed 
freight game with Clyde Ilium.) 

"Natch!" Will Mandible would answer. 

"But why?" Sol Sacrum would ask. {Good old Sol! I hear he's 
a parking meter in Deal, New Jersey. ) 

"Because," Will Mandible would cry, "if I spent a week with 
Albert Einstein, maybe I would get so smart that I would 
be able to figure out a way to spend more than a week with 
Ava Gardner!" 

Well sir, we laughed until our little uvulaa were sore and then 
we went on to a host of other topics. "Do you think it's im- 
portant to join a fraternity?" Murray Tarsus would ask. (Good 
old Murray! I hear he's in the mica game now. ) 

"Only if you are a boy," Bob Turbinate would answer. (Good 
old Bob! I hear he's in the sheared raccoon game now. IThe 
raccoon, incidentally, was invented by Milton Raccoon, whose 
career should be a source of guidance and inspir.ition to us all. 
Mr. Raccoon arrived in this country in 1907, penniless and not 
speaking a word of English. Today he is the Mayor of four of 
our principal cities. 1 ) 

But to get back to the bull session -"What's the best thing 
to do when the girl you are dancing with insists on leading?" 
Eric Ulna would ask. (Good old Eric! I hear he's in the flutter 
valve game now. ) 

"flit her with a folded newspaper," George Vertebra would 
answer. "Never hit a girl with your hand. They learn to associ- 
ate the hand with food, and you must not confuse them." (Good 
old George ! I hear he's in the folded newspaper game now. ) 

And so it went - the talk ranging the worlds of the arts and 
the sciences and the social graces, until we would climb, spent 
but happy, into our little hammocks ... I wonder if they still 
make bull sessions the way they used to.

What young people are doing at General Electric 



Young specialist in 

community relations 

makes friends in 

101 plant cities 

General Electric now has 131 plants in 101 
cities, and one problem is common to all: 
How can the company show people in every 
community that it is a good neighbor? 

This responsibility is shared by many and 
stimulated by 32-year-old John T. McCarty. 
His job: Consultant, Program Services in 
Plant Community Relations. 

Mccarty's work Is varied, exciting 

McCarty's assignment is to help each of the 
General Electric plants tell its neighbors what 
it is doing, what it hopes to do, and how it 
fits into the community. 

He must be ready to travel to 26 states. 
He prepares conimimity-relatione ^anu^is 
for use in all 101 plant cities. He supervises 
surveys of community sentiment, and tests 
the local effects of the company's advertis- 
ing. And he helps plant management main- 
tain friendly contacts with civic, religious, 
educational and other community leaders. 

23,000 college graduates at General Electric 

This is a sensitive and important job. 
McCarty was readied for it in a careful step- 
by-step program of development. Like Mc- 
Carty, each of the 23,000 college-graduate 
employees is given his chance to grow, to 
find the work he does best, and to realize his 
full potential. For General Electric has long 
beHeved this: When fresh young minds are 
given freedom to make progress, everybody 
benefits — the individual, the company, and 
the country. 




All jfi)()d things must come to an end. .\ik1 Saturday niiiht at 
Pratt Field House, a fine Amherst basketball tfani played probabK' 
its best name ol the season to brinj^ to an abrupt halt a Williams 
strine of lointeen consecutixc caf^e triumphs. The talented Jeffs, 
led hv spectacular senior j^uard Pete Scott, certainly Inul a hot 
shootinfj; niglit, as thev hit on better tlian 40 per cent of their shots 
from the floor. The liovs from Williainstown, on the contrary, found 
it hard to break throiij^h the homi' team's tonj^b defense, and missed 
iiMMierous shots when thev did manaj^e to j;et free. C^'onibine tlie.se 
fact(ns, and the ,'\inberst victory is easily explained. 

The defeat was a bitter pill for Williams to swallow. Of course 
it came as a t<'rrific blow to th<' jilayers, who had hoped against 
hope thevconki complete the .season with an unblemished won-lost 
record. More than that, bo\ve\er, it came as a blow to CNcrvoiie 
connected with Williams College, students and ahnnui alike. Per- 
haps iie\er in the history of Williams athletics had oni' defeat 
brought so mnch grief to so many people. 

Ill the fac<' of this leeliiifj, liowe\er, it must be reineiiiber<'d 
thai the basketball season is far from (i\er for the local live. I5espite 
the loss to .\iiiiierst, this remains the finest team e\er to represent 
Williams. It still possesses an excellent chance to capture the co\et- 
ed Little Three title, in \iew of the fact that .\mherst drojiped a 
62-58 decision to Wesleyan earlier in the season. Even more inipor- 

tant. Williams Is still a very strong 

[ contender for the New England 
berth in the NCAA tournament. 

Especially encouraging is the 
npws that Holy Cross has accept- 
ed a NIT bid, thus eliminating it- 
self as a possible New England re- 
pre.sentative to the NCAA. Con- 
necticut and Williams are the 
leading candidates. And should 
Holy Cross triumph over the 
UConns In a game to be played In 
Storrs. Connecticut, on Saturday. 
February 26, it is hard to see how 
the Shawmen could be denied a 
chance to engage the Connecticut 
team in a playoff to determine this 
district's NCAA representative. 
Tournament or no tournament, 
however, the current edition of 
Shawmen is a great team. It is 
no less deserving of our support as 
a result of Saturday's loss to Am- 
herst.

Amherst. Feb. 19 - A red-hot 
Amherst basketball team, headed 
by little Pete Scott, handed Wil- 
liams its first defeat of the season, 
68-60 in the Pratt Field House 
here tonight. Scott scored 25 
points, 15 of them in the second 
half when the Jeffs rolled to then- 
victory. 

While Amherst was playing its 
best game of the season, Wil- 
liams was playing one of its worst. 
The Shawmen made only 29.4% of 
their shots — definitely not up to 
par — while the Lord Jeffs wei'e 
sinking 40.6'<. Not only was the 
Ephs' shooting off, but so was then- 
floor game and passing. They made 
bad passes and had the ball stolen 
from them inumerable times. 

Amherst Defense 

The Amherst defense — rated 
number one among the nation's 
small colleges — effectively block- 
ed up the middle and kept Wil- 
liams outside. The Ephs couldn't 
work the ball into their big men 
under the boards. And when they 
did. Tony Moro or Ron Wilson 
were swarmed over by the alert 
defense. 

The game was a thriller until 
seven minutes were gone in the 
second half. Then Amherst scored 
12 points while Williams made 
only two. The Ephs were ahead 
47-43 before the Jeff's surge. Scott 
led the drive with three sets. From 
then on, Williams couldn't get 
back in the game, which had been 
tied 11 times previously. They 
could get no closer than four 
points before Amherst would open 
up the gap again. 

Even First Half 

During the first half, even 
though the Ephs showed none of 
the spark of previous games, the 
set shooting of Bill CuUen and the 
i-ebounding of Moro kept them in 
the game. The half was a tight 
see-saw battle with first Williams 
taking a slight lead, then Amherst

Saturday. Feb. 19 - Unable to 

hit its stilde in the first period. 

j the Willlarns College hockey team 

[ met defeat at the hands of a high- 

I ly touted Providence squad on the 

Williamstown rink this afternoon, 

, 7-4. In whipping the Ephs, the 

pucksters from Providence tallied 

five times in the opening period. 

The loss pushed the Ephs below 

the .500 mark for the first time 

sin:;e uieir ojjenir.c eanic defeat 

by Ti-inity. 

The outcome of today's contest 
was clearly tne result of the poor 
showing made by the Purple In 
the first period. The Ephs were 
overwhelmed by the offensive 
strength of Providence's Bill 
McCrink, Jack Sweeney and Char- 
ley Monahan, and before they 
could pull their defense together, 
the Rhode Islanders had piled up 
five goals. During this stanza, the 
Ephs were able to score only once, 
when the brother duo of Gary 
Leinbach to Bob Leinbach clocked 
for a tally at 9:56. 

In the second period. Coach 
Mccormick's squad, showing new 
life, outplayed and outscored the 
visitors. Bob Bethune opened the 
scoring by whipping a hard shot 
past Goalie John Crawford of 
Providence. Following the third 
goal of the afternoon for Pro- 
vidence's Monahan. Howie Pat- 
terson scored another Eph tally 
on a pass from Bethune. 

In the closing stanza, each team 
tallied once, Dick Flood .scoring for 
Williams on an assist from Bob 
Leinbach, and Sweeney .scoring his 
second tally of the afternoon for 
the visitors.

Tillich Delivers Perennial Sermon Gates . . . 
On Importance of Human Strength 



Famous Theologian Runs 
Baxter Hall Discussion 
On 'Concept of God' 



Sunday, Feb. 20 - Professor Paul 
J. Tillich Ph. D. Th. D., Professor 
of Philosophical Theology at Uni- 
on Theological Seminary and Uni- 
versity Piofessor-elect at Harvard, 
delivered the chapel sermon this 
morning on the subject "Be 
Strong". A large crowd of under- 
graduates and alumni were on 
hand to hear the famous theolo- 
gian. 

Dr. Tillich began his sermon by 
stating that the quest for strength 
is universal, and that strength is 
one of the virtues that make up 
the Christian personality. However, 
he said, one can be nothing but 
oneself, and strength cannot come 
from a weak person, just as a 
cold-hearted person cannot feel 
love. 

Self-IIonesty is Important 

Should the weak person then 
merely accept his fate, and fall 
into a cynical resignation? Pro- 
fessor Tillich asserted that a sur- 
prising number of people do. but 
that they should endeavor to be 
honest with themselves. When the 
cloak of self-deceit has been re- 
moved, one at least has strength 
in that he has acknowledged his 
limitations. 

The strong person must always 
be watchful, lest his strength have 
a harmful effect on others. 
Love is Root of Strength 

In ending his sermon. Profes- 
sor Tillich stated "God partici- 
pates in us and gives us strength 
by his participation". Thus all 
strength has for its roots love, and 
courage without love leads to tyr- 
anny. 

Immediately after the service. 
Professor Tillich took part in a 
discussion in the Freshman Lounge 
of the Student Union. Here num- 
erous questions were asked per- 
taining to the speaker's concept 
of God. Dr. Tillich emphasized 
the infinite, indefinable quality, 
but classified as absurd the "Al- 
mighty" or "Good Tyrant" con- 
cept.

Society of Alumni 

Jesup Hall was the scene of the 
executive committee meeting of 
the Society of Alumni Friday 
night. Three members of the ex- 
ecutive committee were appointed

sentatives Saturday morning to

sition of alumni trustee, and five 
tor the Tyng Committee. The 
names will not be released until 
the nominees have been contacted 
and accept. All alumni will ballot 
by mail to choose one nominee for 
each post. 

Meanwhile, students and alumni 
alike were treated to a whirl of 
athletic events and a Cap and 
Bells production. On Friday and 
Saturday nights the Adams Mem- 
orial Theater presented Christo- 
pher Fry's "The Lady's Not for 
Burning". On Saturday afternoon 
the swimming team met Bowdoin,

fessor Gates went back to the Uni- 
versity of Chicago to finish his MA 
and to work on his PliD. Termin- 
ating his graduate work, Professor 
Gates returned to Williams, where 
he taught from 1947 to 1950. He 
then went to Washington to hold 
a position in the Export-Import 
Bank of the Government, which 
is in charge of all loans abroad. 

On returning to Williams this 
fall, Doctor Gates commented, 
"this is great". In answer to the 
((Uestion as to how he felt setthng 
down to teaching after his exten- 
sive travels and varied experiences, 
he replied lie believed that in the 
position he now holds he is able 
to attain a much broader perspec- 
tive than he had had before.

breastetroke as he defeated Steve 
Morse of Bowdoin in the time of 
2:43.9, his best so far this season. 
The 440 yard freestyle produced a

forging ahead. The intermission 
score was 35-35. The game con- 
tinued along in this fashion for 
the first seven minutes of the se- 
cond lialf, but then Amherst start- 
ed its winning drive. 

Williams seemed to fall apart 
all at once. As soon as its defense 
went astray, allowing the Amlierst 
rally, the offense lost all its puncli. 
And the rebounding was pool'. 
Moro and Wilson would tap tlie 
ball between them without .scor- 
ing, and finally an Amherst man 
would grab tlie ball. In the last 
ten minutes of tlie contest, the 
Ephs scored only 11 points. 
Amlierst Up 

Amherst was way up for the 
game, which attracted a standing- 
room-only crowd of 3200 to tlie 
Pratt Cage. Tlie Jetf.s put the pres- 
sure on tlie Eplimen from the 
start. Williams carried a heavy 
load going into the game, what 
witli an unbeaten string, fighting 
tor a tournament berth, and play- 
ing Amherst on its home floor. The 
Jeffs, on the other hand, were out 
to break Williams' streak and 
squelch any chance for a tourney 
bid.

Sargisson Attacks Administration; 
FTC Head Claims Loss of Trust 



Treasurers Defeat Idea 
Of College Intervention 
In Fraternity Billing 



Monday. Feb. 21 - This after- 
noon the administration came un- 
der severe criticism at a meeting 
of the Fraternity Tieasurers' 
Council. The meetlnt' concerned 
the fact that several fraternities 
have agreed to let the college di- 
rectly handle all their board bills 
and all book-keeping Incidental to 
maintaining a kitchen. 

After a statement by Duane T. 
Sargisson '55, President of the 
Fraternity Treasurers' Council, a 
ballot was taken regarding hou.se 
feeling on college billing. Ten votes 
were cast against allowing the 
college to bill their respective 
houses. Two houses were in favor 
and three houses abstained. Their 
vote will be announced later. 

Expression of Sentiment 

The PTC, however, has no juris- 
diction over the individual fra- 
ternities on this matter. The vote 
is merely an expression of indi- 
vidual house sentiment. Dick 
Swart '56 led the opposition to 
college billing on the grounds that 
it is tire fraternities' responsibility 
to run their books and that no 
house should cede to the college 
any administrative functions. 

Alpha Delta Phi's Steward, 
Charles Robin.son '56, spoke in fa- 
vor of college billing. He felt that 
this system would not only be eas- 
ier but that Ini^smuch as the 
houses were paying $9.50 per mem- 
ber to the fraternity Dining Ser- 
vice they should take advantage 
of the new service offered by tlie 
college. 

.Sargisson's Statement 

Sargisson opened the Council 
meeting with this statement after 
reading the Brush Report: 

"The underlying problem that 
confronts the members of the 'Wil- 
liams community and particularly 
this Council is the loss of all con- 
fidence and trust in the adminis- 
tration and trustees. Based on the 
handling of the recent deterred 
rushing problem, as Mr. Brush 
stated earlier, the Williams fami- 
ly no longer can place any confi- 
dence in the policy-makers who 
seem bent on the leveling of fra- 
ternities to impotence if not in 
the outright abolition. The FTC, 
in the absence of effective opposi- 
tion from other responsible groups 
to the loss of fraternity preroga- 
tives, must be the first to question 
over-all administration policy in

David B. Mathia,s, '26, of Scarsdale, N. Y.. has been named 
chairman of the 1955-56 Williams ahmnii fimd drive which has a

Homecoming weekend. 

A dfsplay of ink and water color sketches, drawn by Steve Gor- 
d(m. ',54. is currently being featured at the Lawrence Art Museum 
through Sunday. Feb. 27. Gordon, an art major, was well known 
throughout the college for his work on iirogram cover posters and 
other items. 



Freshman president Larrv Nilsen told bis class Tuesday that 
a "get tough" jiolicy niav sooii be adopted towards breaking wm- 
dows. UnU'ss this activity stopped, he warned, some disciplinary 
action may be taken. The matter is now in the hands of the Fresh- 
man Discipline Committee and, so far. the Administration has made 
no moves to imposi' punishment. Under the preseiit arrangement 
students breaking windows are chargwl $1.50 for e\crv smashed 
pane. The occniiants of the rooms are billed for damages when 
those who break the windows get awav from the scene of the crime 
without being sixrttcnl. C;urrent statistics show that a total of $242 
has be<'n charged for broken windows in the ()uad with snowballs, 
beer cans anti rocks in that order as the favorite gmded mi.ssile.s. 

Hope for government tax aid to parents of college students 
rose last week when die American Council on Education announc- 
ed that its bill to give tax credit for tuition navmenfs was assured 
of a Congressionaf hearing. Tlie C;ouncirs bill would applv only to 
tuition, not room and board, giving only 30 per cent credit on this 
expense.

mation and election of officers of 
the Williams Sports Car Club.

organizational meeting indicated 
that they would join, and the Club

Many Activities Planned 

The Sports Car Club has set up 
an ambitious program of activi- 
ties and functions. The Club plans 
to show automobile movies, or- 
ganize transportation to outstand- 
ing motor car events such as the 
Hartford Auto Show and the 
Thompson races, and conduct ral- 
lies and gymkhanas among the 
students. 

For those not familiar with 
sports car slang, a gymkhana is 
the equivalent of a gymnastics 
display in an automobile. A rally 
Is an automobile "race" in which 
a driver has to follow a set of 
written directions or decipher sets 
of sand-bag markers along a route, 
maintaining a speed such that he 
will arrive at surprise check points 
and the unknown finish line at 
set predetermined times. 

MG's Head Club Roster 

The Sports Car Club has a fair- 
ly good representation of autos 
among its members. By far the 
most popular car is the MO. of 
which there are six. 

Among the seven other vehicles 
represented on the club roster are 
one each of the following: Cor- 
vette, Thunderbird, Alpine, Ro- 
ver, Ford Special, Chewy Special 
and even a motor cycle.

Wynne's job will be to handle all 
financial affairs of the Council 
and to represent it on the SAC. 

The new officers then proposed 
a slate for the new Rules, Nomin- 
ations, and Elections Committee, 
which organizes and conducts all 
neces.sary campus elections and 
presents committee nominations 
to the CC for approval. The slate, 
which was unanimously approved 
by the Council, will consist of Don 
O'Brien '56, Frank Dengel '57, Dee 
Gardner '57, and Larry Nilsen '58. 
Montgomery, retiring as Presi- 
dent, closed the meeting by men- 
tioning some old business for the 
new Council to consider during its 
tenure. He read a letter from Fort 
Lauderdale, Florida, which cordial- 
ly welcomed all Williams students 
there during the spring holiday 
and expressed the hope that their 
conduct would do nothing to cause 
the city dissatisfaction. In past 
years the behavior of Williams 
students has not been "above re- 
proach."

NCAA Bid Near; 
UCoim Gets NIT 



Director of Athletics 
Airs B'ball Views 



Thursday, Feb. 24 - The Univer- 
sity of Connecticut tonight ac- 
cepted a bid to play in the Na- 
tional Invitational Basketball 
Tournament, leaving the way 
clear for Williams to represent 
New England In the NCAA tour- 
nament. Reliable sources say that 
if the Ephs receive a bid they will 
accept. The decision rests with 
Pres. Baxter, who was unavailable 
for comment this evening. 

As Athletic Director Frank 
Thorns pointed out Wednesday 
evening during a WMS interview. 
President Baxter will make his 
decision only after considering 
the recommendations of the Ath- 
letic Council and the Faculty Com- 
mittee on Athletics. 

Coach Al Shaw was holding bas- 
ketball practice when the news 
was brought to him. His face broke 
into a wide smile and he called the 
team over to read the UP story 
that had come in over the WMS 
wires. The team reacted enthu- 
siastically as they went on with 
their practice. 

The selection committee of New 
England, which is responsible for 
the picking of a New England re- 
presentative, consists of the ath- 
letic directors of the University of 
Connecticut, Holy Cross, Bowdoln, 
The University of Vermont and 
Boston University. Due to the deli- 
cacy of the situation, the director 
at the University of Connecticut 
has resigned and has been replac- 
ed by a Coast Guard Academy 
man.

Editorial 

In Good Faith 



Again the (|ut'stioii of the college's handling the hilling for 
some of the fniteniities lias arisen and oneo again the attacks lor 
this action have been levelled largely against the administration. 
Jn a statement to the Fraternity 'treasurers' Coinieil, Diiaiie Sar- 
gissoii blamed the problem on the "loss of all confidence and trust 
in the administration and the trustees." 

The RECORD board has taken its stand that college billing 
should be avoided if it is at all possible for the fraternities' treas- 
mers to handle the matter themselves. They are gi\ ing up, not only 
a pert)gati\e of the fraternities, but also a duty of their office. It is 
important to em|)hasize again, however, that this action has been 
taken solely at the instigation of the fraternities and not suggested 
by the college administration. 

Unfortimately, the deferred rushing problem has also been 
brought up again. It has been settled despite our wishes and there 
is nothing more that can he done now. We liO|)e that Sargisson, 
Brush, anti all others will let this matter rest in peace for awhile. 
It is unhirtunate that Sargisson and some other students no longer 
have eonlidence in the administration, whose sole aim is to promote 
and protect what is best for Williams. We may disagree with thiur 
decisions, but at least have conficleuee in their good faith. 



Purple Co-captains Moro, Wilson 
Show Mixture of Brains, Baskets 

Bi/ Siindii Hunsell '58 

"Jf the student body keeps backing us now the way they have 
been all year, I'm sine we are going to bounce back as a stronger, 
better unified ball club. ' These words, voiced by Tony Moro, ef- 
fectively e,\i5ress the firm conviction of Williams' high-scoring, sky- 
scraping basketball co-captains, Moro and Ron Wilson. 

With the record books revealing that this campaign will be 
recorded as one of the best, if not the best, seasons of all time in 
Eph cage circles, this |iowerful duo has been a key factor in the 
team's brilliant success. Their irrepressible scoring prowess, deft 
ball handling, strong board work, sterling defensive and all-around 
play and cool, calmly efficient performances under pressure have 
been spearheading the Purple for the past three seasons. 

Anticipate Tounici/ 

Both boys' eyes shown with anticipation at the mention of a 
possible post-season toiu'nanieiit bid although they refused to com- 
ment on Williams' chances of receiving one of the highly coveted 
offers. Tony e.vpressed the feeling of the entire siiiiad when he said, 
"The flexibility and imdorstanding needed to acljust to the team's 
appearing in a tournament would be a credit to the school. This is 
a once-in-a-hnndred years proposition, it certaiidy can't endanger 
the .school's well-ingrained academic reputation and 1 think that, 
if we get a bid, we deserve the chance to go. The students and 
ainmni, as well as the team, deserve it. " 

As far as the Amherst Waterloo was concerned, the boys felt 
that the team did not tighten up, but merely "went cold" in their 
shooting. "We could replay that game lOOO times," Ron muttered 
dryly. They pointed out that now the team could either slump, 
maintain the same level, or roar back as a more powerful unit. "It 
would he a real achievement to bounce back after such a disappoin- 
ting loss, especially to our arch-rivals, but I'm sine we 11 do it, and 
I hope the students stick by us," Tony added. Tonight's tilt at Wes- 
Icyan and the return engagement with Amherst are the big targets. 

The spirit of the students at the Dartmoiitb, Springfield and 
Ainberst games "gave us a big lift" stated Wil.son, who answers to 
the nickname "Birdie. " With a sheepish grin he cagily evaded re- 
vealing just how this iiiiiisual nickname developed. "It's a well- 
guarded secret from my high school days, " is all be would .say, and

no aiiioimt of prying or insisting could make any more headway 
on this point. 

Three Year Hlars 

Both men have been starring with the Williams varsity lor 
three years, Wilson in particular pacing the .sipiad in scoring each 
season. .Moro, however, nii.ssed iniieli of his Innior year with a kid- 
ney injury. Dtili/iiig their 6-7 and (i-5 heights to lull extent, Tony 
and "Birdie" have been towers of strength under the boards all 
during their sparkling careers. 

.\s lar as this year's team is concerned, Wilson cited the all- 
around general improvement, the ball-handling especially, as one 
ol the main differences between this outfit and last year's. "And 
(.'oaeb .\1 Shaw is doing a great job this year.too," Tony echoed. 
.Moro and Wilson are the only two seniors on the first five. 
Exteimivc lia(kfir<iiiii(lii 

The two stars have both had extensive backgrounds and out- 
standing careers to look back upon. Wilson, starting out at West 
Ilartforo ( Clonn. ) High School, averagi'd only about 11 points per 
game there. Ilovvi'ver, his biggest s|)ortiiig thrill came wlii'ii West 
Hartford won an important tournanient game bis senior year. 

Emerging as a high-povveri'd scorer on the Krosh five here, he 
ihovckI np to record 234 points his Sophomore year, leading all var- 
sity .scorers. East year, he pniiiped in 391 markers and has rolled to 
anotlu-r 300 so far this year, an exact 20-))er-game average. 
7'ic() Records 

The (|iiiet, likeable senior curreutiv holds two all-time Williams 
.scoring records. Early this season, he easily surpassed the career 
high total of 711, of ilarry Slieely .51, as of now eclipsing the old 
mark by more than 200 counters with tliri'c regular games remain- 
ing. Ill addition, his blistering 44 points against Wesieyan last sea- 
son is also an all-time high and it s no wonder be is again looking 
forward to tonight's big tilt with the (.'ardinals. At one point last 
year, Wilson accounted for 91 markers in three straight games. 

A Political Science major, he has no definite plans as yet, ex- 
ce))t that he antici])ates wedding bells to be sounding for him right 
after Graduation in June. The lucky gal turns out to be ebarming 
Nancy Cedar, a |niiior at Connecticut College for Women. 
Flaijcd at I'riiuli/ 

The imassuniing Moro, playing his prep school ball at Trinity 
School in New York, led bis team to an 84-12 slate in four years. He 
has bei'ii on the same team with Toin White, currently the number 
six man on the v arsity, since the fifth grade and the pair stood out 
for Trinity. 

Although more of a play-maker in prep school, Tony suddenly 
tnrnetl into a scorer with the freshman team, averaging 20 points 
per tilt until breaking an ankle late in the year. Next season, on the 
varsity, he |)eppered the hoops at a l()-per-outiug clip, ami last year, 
he was doing 17 markers a game until, after six contests, he was 
sidelined for the remainder ol the year with a kidney ailment. Des- 
pite this, be was still awarded an honorable mention bertb on the 
Look Maga/ine All-New England team. He has since received a 
feeler Irom the professional Miiiiiea|)olis Lakers, but he is not in- 
terested. He ])laiis, instead, to spend a vear in Krance after gradua- 
tion on a Fnlbrigbt Scholarship and then enter Harvard Law School. 
His biggest thrill in sjiorts was the Rhode Island game this season. 
Varied llislori/ 

The two men have a contrasting history as far as physical con- 
dition is concerned. On one hand, Ron has started every game since 
he has been at Williams with the exception of his first two as a 
Freshman. His only injury has been a slightly sprained ankle his 
first year. 

On the other hand. .Moro's career has been plagued with a 



series of bad breaks. To add to his troubles, "Amherst has always 
been my nemisis," he moans. 

His freshman year, he was running Amherst plays against the 
varsity to prepare them for their big game when he collided with 
Mike I,a/or and broke his ankle. "I was really hot that day, too, and 
we were cutting the varsity to ribbons" he recalled wistiully. His 
Sophomore year, Tony saw his thumb painlully spraineil the day 
before the Lord |eff tilt, severely handicapping him for both Am- 
herst contests. 

K.arly last season, he collided with Wally Jensen in practice, 
injuring a kidney. X-rays then revealed that liis other kidiu'y, the 
one not hurt in the accident, was in bad shape, probably being that 
way since birth, and thus was out of action lor the rest ol the year. 
Ironically, the first kidney (|nickly lieali'd, but the other one promp- 
ted a doctor to warn Tony that he may be permanently crippled, 

.Moro still wears a special bandage, consisting ol lootball hip 
pads up high, lor protection. And in addition, Tony missed a game 
three days behire the .\iiilierst fray this season because ol lln. "So 
this was the first year I I'ver playeil .Amherst in even near-top phys- 
ical condition and look what happened! They iiui.st be my jinx! " 
he comphiined, 

/Jn.vi/ lioi/s 

Tony and Ron both have a host of other activities along with 
basketball. Tony is a member of the Social Council, Ciargoyle, I'm 
pie Key, Discipline Coinniittei' and has been a junior .Advisor and 
President of Theta Delt I'ralernitv. 

.Also in Gargoyle and I'nrple Key, Ron has served as President 
of tile Social Council, an .Assistant Editor of the News Bureau, a 
member of the .soccer team, the Outing Club and the College (.'onn- 
cil, be was a Junior .Advisor and past President ol Beta Thela I'i. 

And, to complete the action-packed story ol the deserving, 
highly-respected leaders of the inightv U)>l-5.o Williams College 
basketball team, to point out another striking similarity between 
tliesi' two veteran athletes whose bat bands have reinarkably seen 
no change ilespite their outstanding success, and to show that 
"books and baskets'" can mix, it is pointed out that Ron Wilson is 
a steady Dean s I,ist student and Tonv Moro earned I'bi Beta Kappa 
honors his |niii()r vear — just another in the long, sti'adily growing 
list of fine tributes to two of the Purple's all-time cage greats.

against Ajiilierst to take the erown, as the strong Wesleyaii team 
had previously overwhehricd th<' .Sabrinas. 

A first peiiod takedown by Hank Leyden proved to !»• the

most exciting mutch of the meet, 
9-6. TrullinB 9-1 halfway through 
the last period, Wesman Ford 
Frlcke scored a reversal and caught 
Pitts in a pin hold. Holding on 
until the bell, Pitts was able to 
retain his lead and victory.

vies. 7-4, in the 147 pound class. 
and gave the Ephmen a 6-2 ad- 
vantage. Captain Bob Little man- 
aged to retain his undefeated re- 
cord with an escape in the second 
period which was enough to tie his 
strong opponent, Kent Davies, 1-1. 

With Jack Barker's 4-2 victory, 
and Al Reed's 4-2 decision, Wil- 
liams clinched a close meet. Wes-

Varsity Tankmen 
To Face Wesleyan 

Visiting Ephs Rate 
Role of Favorites 



Saturday, Feb. 26 - A strong 
Williams College swimming team, 
boasting a fine 5-1 record, should 
have little trouble in besting Lit- 
tle Three rival Wesleyan at the 
Wesmen's pool this afternoon. 
Eph coach Bob Muir observes that 
"we have them pretty well set". 

Led by their co-captains Bob 
Bretscher, a diver, and Rick Ste- 
vens, a breaststroker, the Cards 
have a 5-4 record this season. A- 
mong teams that have beaten them 
are Springfield, victim of an upset 
Williams win. They were also 
soundly trounced by Amherst. 56- 
28. 

Use First Stringers 

Muir intends to swim his first 
string boys against the weak op- 
ponents in order to keep their 
competitive edge for the Amherst 
meet next week. The Ephs will be 
paced by captain Gene Latham, 
who set a new school record in 
the 150 yard medley relay against 
Bowdoin. Latham swam the dis- 
tance in the fine time of 1:38. 
clipping 1.6 second off the old re- 
cord of 1:39.6. Latham will swim 
in the medley and final 400 yard 
relay. 

Sophomore Pete Dietz is an- 
other Williams point-getter. Dietz 
is entered in three events — the 
220 freestyle, the 440 freestyle, 
and llie 400 relay. Giving tough 
competition to Wes diver Bretsch- 
er. a strong man, w^ill be another 
Williams record-breaker. Buster 
Grossman. Grossman was in good 
form last week when he broke the 
college record for eight dives by 
5:18 points with a score of 107.78. 

The varsity meet which starts at 
two, will be followed by the fresh- 
man meet at four. 



A Campus-to-Career Case History 




He figures for the future 



It's James Kirchhoff's job to look 
ahead. As a Plant Engineer with 
Illinois Bell Telephone Company, he 
helps estimate telephone equipment 
needs years in advance. 

For example . . . when a new real 
estate development is in the planning 
stage, Jim figures how much tele- 
phone equipment it will need when 
it reaches its full growth. His esti- 
mate is based on his knowledge of 



the equipment's potential plus fore- 
casts provided him of the area's rate 
of development. He then makes a 
complete report that becomes the 
basis of plans for the future. 

Jim can take a look at his own 
future, too. In telephone engineering 
he can see a great many opportunities 
opening up in the next five years . . . 
ten years. He can pick the one he 
wants and start working toward it. 



Jim graduated from Norlhweslern University 
as an E.E., class of 1952. His progress since 
then is typical of college men v/ho have chosen 
Iclcplionc careers. If youM he interested in a 
similar opportunity, see your Placement Of- 
ficer for full details. Tliere are also openings 
with oilier Bell telephone companies, with Bell 
Telephone Laboratories, or Western Electric 
and the Sandia Corporation.

Wesleyan Grapplers 



Wednesday, Feb. 23 - The 
Williams freshman wrestling

wrecked a Cardinal frosh win- 
ning skein which had not been 
blemished by a loss. The Pur- 
ple now boast a 3-1 record.

too well balanced for the Wes- 
leyan grapplers. as Jim Hutch- 
inson in the 130 pound class.

vyweight George Vare all walk- 
ed off with pins and the maxi-

Purple Must Win 
To Capture Title 

Hazen Leads Wesleyan 

In Bid for Big Upset 



By Chet Lasell 

Saturday. Feb. 26 - Tlie Wil- 
liams varsity basketball team, in 
its first encounter since last week's 
stunning Amherst defeat stopped 
the Purple streak at fourteen 
games without a loss, journeys to- 
night to Middletown to meet Wes- 
leyan in one of the most crucial 
games of the year. The Purple 
hoopsters must win this one if 
they are to capture the Little 
Three championship. 
Williams cannot afford to drop 
any of its remaining three games 
if it is to realize its dream of post- 
season competition. 

The Wesmen are a much strong- 
er outfit than their five wins and 
seven losses record indicates. 
Coach John Wood has a veteran 
team noted for its great fire and 
scrap and the Cardinals will be 
out to avenge the crushing 91-59 
defeat administered by the Ephs 
earlier in the season. When on its 
home court, Wesleyan has been 
known several times to pull the 
impossible upset. A good example 
is the 62-58 defeat dealt Amherst 
this year by the Wesmen, who 
were expected to be an easy push- 
over for the strong Lord Jeffs. 

Captain Hazen. Nunes Stars 

The Wesleyan five is sparked by 
tw'o veteran performers starting in 
the forward positions. Captain Bob 
Hazen. a senior at six feet, play- 
naker and high scorer of the team 
all year, has averaged over twenty 
points a game with a deadly set 
shot and one-handed push. An- 
other senior, six foot Don Nunes 
has been consistently impressive 
with his scrappy brand of play, 
and has tossed in about fifteen 
points per contest. 

Starting in the center position 
for Coach Wood will be junior Lar- 
ry Tremper. tallest man on the 
squad at six foot four, who is a 
strong rebounder nnd averages 
ten a game. Filling in for Ti-emper 
will be either Andy Milewski at 
six foot two or sophomore Non 
Ocksrider at six foot four. At one 
guard berth will be senior Pete 
Nixon, a six foot veteran who 
averages ten points per game with 
a deadly set shot and is a most 
able defensive player. Sophomore 
Jay Cobbledick will occupy the 
other guard spot. He stands five 
foot eleven and scores around ten 
per contest. 

The Williams team of Coach Al 
Shaw will be at full strength for 
this battle, but it is a question of 
great speculation just how the 
Ephs will come back after losing 
for the first time this season. The 
sternest test of a great basketball 
team is whether it can rise to the 
occasion after a disappointing 
showing such as Williams put on 
at Amherst. However, with every- 
thing depending on a win in to- 
night's game Williams should be 
way up for this one. Wesleyan 
also has enough reason to want 
this game very badly and certain- 
ly has the reputation for the un- 
expected upset. The whole ques- 
tion resolves itself into one idea, 
however; Williams must win this 
game.

Professor A. C. Piper Discusses Capacity Audience 
Distinct Spanish Cultural Pattern "Di*"*"' ^'*' 



Second Faculty Lecture 
Stresses Individuality 
Of Spanish People 



Saturday, Feb. 26 - In the se- 
cond of a series of faculty lectures. 
Anson Conant Piper. Assistant 
Professor of Romantic Languages, 
described Spain's distinct pattern 
of culture, emphasizing tlie Span- 
ish belief of man as totally indi- 
vidualistic and non-conformable. 
Piper spoke on 'Spanish Human- 
ism" last week in the Biology 
Building auditorium. 

Explaining the influence of 
Spain's geographical location as a 
natural barrier in bringing about 
its state of separateness. Profes- 
sor Piper stressed the cultural gap 
between the Iberian Peninsula and 
the rest of Europe. Unlike most 
European lands. Spain has not on- 
ly lacked tourist attraction, but 
has deprecated any build-up, 
which it is felt would slander the 
country. 

Man in Whole Relief 
One must forget material suc- 
cess in dealing with Spain. "Al- 
though rich in all art." said Pi- 
per, "it has never invented a 
comfortable piece of furniture." 
The Spaniard emphasizes man in 
whole relief, as both emotional 
and rational. The Spanish mind 
cannot worship the theoretical ab- 
stract. 

Using slides of masterpieces by 
Velasquez and El Greco, Piper il- 
lustrated the uniting of the real 
and the classical in painting. The 
dwarfs of the Spanish court, so 
often portrayed by Velasquez on 
canvas, were not degraded as a 
class, but elevated to a distin- 
guished position. Piper explained 
that this showed the Spanish feel- 
ing for humanity as far back as 
the seventeenth centuy. 

Windmills To Steam Engines 
The loss of the "I know who I 
am" feeling of Cervantes' roman- 
tic Don Quixote, and the rise of 
over-mechanization led to the fi- 
nal collapse of the world empire 
of Spain in 1898. Piper placed the 
cause on the submission of wind- 
mills to steam engines. 

Prof. Piper related the outcome 
of the installation of traffic 
lights in the South American city 
of Buenos Aires fifteen years ago. 
It was found that the Spanish 
ego could not take orders from 
mechanical devices. This safety 
device led to the defiant game of 
beating the signals at any risk. 

In concluding. Piper described 
the present political dictatorship 
and intellectual conformity as the 
drawbacks of "filthy logic". The 
seeds of salvation are still there 
and Spain will remain the door 
to inexplainable but understood 
humanism.

Snyder to Speak 
At College Chapel 

Chooses Humility Theme 
For Sunday's Sermon 



Saturday, Feb, 26 - The Wil- 
liams College Chapel has announc- 
ed that the speaker for the Cha- 
pel service this Sunday, February 
27, will be Lee Snyder '55. He will 
talk on the general problem of hu- 
mility and will not speak in a de- 
finite personal vein. Snyder, who 
is the President of the Washington 
Gladden Society and a member of 
Phi Beta Kappa, is the student 
speaker for the current semester. 

Snyder has had a great deal of 
experience in the role of preacher, 
as he spoke at the Williamstown 
Methodist Church on many oc- 
casions last fall. He has also spent 
a great deal of time preaching in 
his local church in Dobb's Perry, 
New York. The choir has been a 
major musical activity for Snyder. 
After graduation, he intends to 
enter the ministry. 

Chapel will be held at its cus- 
tomary 7; 30 time rather than in 
the morning as has happened for 
the last two weeks.

He also suggested that the 
Council appoint a member to act 
as a liaison with the Placement 
Bureau in preparation for next 
year's Career Weekend, and that 
the Council consider a plan allow- 
ing Russian students to study in 
the United States. These students 
have been refused this permission i

that sufficient preparation had

regard to fraternities. Only by past 
actions, and particularly by exam- 
ining the handling of the rushing 
problem, can we predict their even- 
tual aim and see the vast power a 
small organized minority wields. 
Its ability to put across its posi- 
tion in the face of overwhelming 
undergraduate and graduate op- 
position makes one fearful of fu- 
ture abuse of the same power in 
regard to any of the forms of 
centralization that could occur. 
It is the function and the duty of 
the members of this Council be- 
cause of the past actions and fu- 
ture aims of the administration 
not to abrogate further their 
rights, responsibilities, and duties 
as officers of their respective fra- 
ternities." 



Mscussion 



Massive Gibbon History 
Gets Praise, Criticism 
At Evening Meeting 



Monday, Feb. 21 - The second 
in the Phi Beta Kappa Society's 
panel discussion series "Ideas, 
Books and Men" was presented 
in Griffin Hall this evening to an 
attentive capacity audience. The 
subject under discussion was Ed- 
ward Gibbon's The Decline and 
Fall of tlie Roman Empire. Mem- 
bers of the panel included Pro- 
fessor Richard A. Newhall, Pro- 
fessor George M. Harper, Lee Sny- 
der '55, and Royce Gruenler '55. 
Malcolm Nelson '55 was moderator. 
A question and answer period fol- 
lowed remarks on the book and its 
author by the various panel mem- 
bers. 

Professor Newhall led off with 
numerous observations on the 
book, which is an epic work in six 
volumes which was fii'st published 
in 1776 and is still considered a 
masterpiece. Mr. Newhall advanc- 
ed the theory that the work is 
effective at least partially because 
the author spent such a great 
part of his life as an historian and 
iherefore had such a wide range 
f.om which to draw his informa- 
tion. Mr. Newhall and the other 
panel members each documented 
paits of their talk with selections 
iioin the massive work and from 
jiner sources. The entire discus- 
sion was concluded in an informal 
«e.n, and occasional injections of 
iiumor Dy ihe panelists created a 
congenial atmosphere in the pro- 
ceeaings. 

Gibbon's Style Impressive 

Professor Harper noted that the 
style of tne work was indeed im- 
pressive, but sometimes too much 
so. He claimed that the work was 
great, but occasionally Gibbon's 
rhetoric got out of hand. Mr. Har- 
per concentrated his remarks on 
the 44th chapter which dealt with 
the Roman laws. He admittedly 
had not reached the end of the 71 
chapters which Professor Newhall 
estimated would take upwards of 
80 hours reading time. 

The student members of the 
panel discussed the life of Gib- 
bon and his attitude towards re- 
ligion. Many of their conclusions 
gave even greater strength to the 
remarks which their fellow panel- 
ists had just made, since the sub- 
ject matter overlapped in numer- 
ous instances. 



Alumnus Presents 
Drama Criticisms 



Oppenheimer Talks 
About Hits, Trends 

Saturday. Feb. 26 - Tuesday 
evening at the Adams Memorial 
Theatre, George S. Oppenheimer 
'20, drama critic for Newsday, de- 
livered a lecture entitled "Broad- 
way '54-'55" before a large crowd. 
Sponsored by the Williams Lec- 
ture Committee, Mr. Oppenheim- 
er discussed various aspects of the 
'54 -'55 play season, among which 
were its successes and its possible 
trends. 

The finest play of the season so 
far in his opinion is The Flower- 
ing Peach, a drama by Clifford 
Odets. Menasha Skulnik plays the 
lead as Noah in the story of the 
struggles of his family. It is an 
allegorical play and symbolizes a 
story of one world which is al- 
ways threatened by flood. Noah 
has success in surmounting his 
troubles by uniting his family. 
The world might follow his ex- 
ample. 

Praises The Desperate Hours 

The best melodrama in Oppen- 
heimer's eyes is Joseph Hayes' 
The Desperate Hours. It is a story 
of how three convicts on the run 
indirectly teach a family to ap- 
preciate the small things usually 
taken for granted. Mr. Oppenheim- 
er criticized Maxwell Anderson's 
popular play, Bad Seed. 

Although it is hard to identify 
definitely trends in the theater 
during the middle of a season, Mr. 
Oppenheimer said that the style 
of acting was the most significant 
change. Underacting is disappear- 
ing while .such personalities as 
Marlon Brando, Mary Martin and 
Eartha Kitt have emerged in ex- 
uberant form.

WILLIAMS COLLEGE 




Trustees Raise Tuition to 
Baxter Imputes Cause to Inflation 



Increased Aid, Jobs, 
Help Students Defray 
Augmented Expenses 



Wednesday, Mar. 2 - President 
James Phinney Baxter announced 
recently that by a vote of the 
Board of Trustees the tuition would 
be Incieased to $800 a year as of 
July 1. 1955. This increase of $100 
Baxter said would set the total 
cost for a year at Williams at 
$1,535 excluding boolcs. clothes, 
and traveling expenses. 

Inflation has been the cause of 
Increased tuitions at Williams. In 
Ills President's Report Baxter said; 
"The chief problem confronting 
American higher education since 
tlie war has been that of paying 
adequate faculty salaries in a peri- 
od when inflation cut the purchas- 
ing power of the dollar in half." 
Pour-fifths of this income receiv- 
ed from the tuition increase will 
l!0 to raise faculty salaries. The 
other fifth of this amount will be 
used in the scholarship fund. 

Scholartihips Increased 
Baxter emphasized that the 
Williams Board has approved a 
raise In each scholarship granted 
by the College and that it has 
voted to increase the number of 
scholaiships for students from 16'l 
to 20'/. He said that it was the de- 
sire of the administration to have 
a larger group of scholarship stu- 
dents in Williams regardless of 
Inflation's effect upon operating 
expenses. 

Under the direction of Henry 
N. Flynt. Jr. '44, Secretary of the 
Student Aid Committee, an ex- 
panding amount of student em- 
ployment has helped to allay de- 
mands for financial aid. During 
1951-52 the office of Student Aid 
had a hand In the assignment of 
almost five hundred semester time 
jobs In fifty different varieties. 
In a four year period Williams stu- 
dents earned a total amount of 
1,428,576 dollars toward their col- 
lege expenses. 

In the President's Report, Bax- 
ter said that American Colleges 
will be faced with Increasing ap 
plications for admission over the 
next generation because of the 
greater birthiate during the war 
years. However, Baxter said: "The 
policy at Williams is to maintain 
our enrollment at its present lev- 
el." The enrollment at Williams 
has been set at about 1,000 stu- 
dents discounting foreign and ex- 
change students.

Professor Barnett Analyzes Commuiiist 
Challenge in Italy Stressing Economic, 
Social, Political Viewpoints of Problem 



Thursday, Feb. 24 - The doctrine 
of competitive coexistence as re- 
ilated to the communist challenge 
' in Italy was discussed by Professor 
(Vincent M. Barnett of the politi- 
cal science department this af ter- 
(noon. Barnett delivered the third 
faculty lecture of the year entitled 
"The Communist Challenge in 
Italy." 

By the doctrine of competitive 
coexistence, Professor Barnett re- 
ferred to the Increase in competi- 
tion for the neutral or weak demo- 

icratic states of the free world. 
This competition is based upon 
the differing attributes of the two 

'Economic and social systems back- 
ed by the power blocks present in 
today's world. The increase is due 
to the basic contention that a 
large scale shooting war is not in 
the foreseeable future, and there- 
fore competition is shifted away 
from physical might to more subtle 
matters concerning the two sys- 
tems. 

Unstable Italy Threatened 

Italy is considered to be one of 
these contested countries. As Pro- 
fessor Barnett said, she is already 
within our orbit but certainly not 
solidly. The problem is to keep her 
there and strengthen her democra- 
tic Institutions. This can only be 
accomplished by an alleviation of 



the disastrously poor economic and 
social conditions prevalent today. 
Principally because of the past 
laxities of the Christian Democra- 
tic post-war governments, these 
conditions have remained poor and 
have tailed to satisfy the needs of 
the people. 

Discontentment reigns high, pro- 
ducing a high rate of scepticism 
toward the country's democratic 
Institutions. Nearly fifty percent 
of the voters cast their ballots for 
non-democratic parties, either on 
the far left or far right. Most of 
these votes, as Professor Barnett 
stated, are not to be considered 
as pro-facist or pro-communist, 
but rather as protest votes against 
the present, passive democratic 
governments. Until the present 
Scelba government, they all had 
failed to alleviate the basic econ- 
omic problems of the economy, 
mainly unemployment. Voters who 
disapproved found no way of show- 
ing discontentment without vot- 
ing against the democratic Insti- 
tutions themselves. Professor Bar- 
nett then added to this the reasons 
of first, party structure, and se- 
cond, the resentment toward the 
interference of the Roman Catho- 
lic Church Into politics, for the 
strong non-democratic vote. 



Friday. Feb. 25 - J. Kenneth 
Qalbraith. Professor of Economics 
at Harvard University, addressed 
a large audience on "The Econo- 
mics of Opulence" tonight in Grif- 
fin Hall. Professor Galbraith, who 
is an outstanding American eco- 
nomist and author, is a native of 
Canada and received his formal 
education at the University of Tor- 
onto. 

During the Second World War, 
Mr. Galbraith served in the posi- 
tion of Deputy Administrator of 
the Office of Price Administra- 
tion. He is a past editor of For- 
tune Magazine and at one time 
headed the Strategic Bombing 
Survey in Germany and Japan. 
The purpose of this organization 
was to study the effects of bomb- 
ing on the economies of both Ger- 
many and Japan. 

More Public Expenditures 

In his talk on opulence, Mr. Gal- 
braith asked for more public ex- 
penditures and a cut in consumer 
spending. He stated. "We are mak- 
ing some formidable mistakes . . . 
in allocation of resources." To 
achieve the goal of proper alloca- 
tion. Galbraith called for a raise 
in taxes with a sales tax and a re- 
bate for lower Income groups. 
This would cut down consumer 
spending. He sees a shortage of 
funds for the most ordinary of 
municipal services including edu- 
cation, sanitation, policemen, fire- 
men, hospitals, and highways. 

Turning to the question of go- 
vernment spending. Professor Gal- 
braith said that the populace 
thinks of the State as a "wolf 
at the dinner table" who, unless 
checked, will "devour the whole

prospects of the Shawmen when he 
stated optimistically "we're going

Ephs Meet Canisius 

This year's edition of the Pur- 
ple cagers has been labeled by the 
Springfield Republican as "the 
team of destiny which may turn 
out to be the pioneer for small 
college fives with big-time aspira- 
tions ". The Ephmen take to the 
big time the unanimous support of 
the small New England colleges. 

Williams will meet a highly re- 
garded Canisius team in the pre- 
liminary round to Eastern Region- 
al quarterfinals in New York City's 
Madison Square Garden on March 
8. The contest will be the opener 
of a collegiate triple header 
which should prove to be one of 
the year's top cage attractions. 
The Williams-Canisius tilt is sche- 
duled to begin at 6 p.m. 
Seats Available 

The other two games in the 
Garden that night will feature two 
perennially powerful Philadelphia 
teams. LaSalle. the third ranked 
team nationally, will meet the 
winner of the Southern Confer- 
ence, in all likelihood, West Vir- 
ginia. Villanova will be pitted a- 
gainst the Atlantic Conference 
representative. The latter will be 
decided in a tournament with 
Maryland. Duke, and North Caro- 
lina eligible for the NCAA berth. 

Regular tickets to Garden bas- 
ketball games vary in price from 
$3 to $6. A special block of seats 
for Williams' rooters will be avail- 
able for $1.50. These seats are in 
the section behind one of the bas- 
kets and sell regularly for three 
dollars. Three hundred tickets are 
being sent up to Williamstown and 
more will be obtained if they are 
needed. 

Canisius Powerful 

Canisius has a 15-4 season mark 
to date with three games remain-

Weekend to Feature 
Blast, Game, Dance 

Wednesday. Mar. 2 - Another of 
the proverbial Williams Frosh- 
Soph Smashes has been slated for 
the coming weekend. At a meeting 
of the Freshman Social Council 
last Thursday, this weekend was 
picked over several later dates, 
as It is supposed to avoid most 
style-cramping hour tests and 
papers. 

The crucial question of whether 
the administration will unbend 
and grant the Freshmen an ex- 
tension of the hour rules for the 
weekend has not yet been settled. 
Both of the Deans Involved, Lam- 
son and Scott, were reported out 
of town for the early part of this 
week by their secretaries. Until 
they return, there will be no final 
word on this problem, 

Jeff Basketball Game 
The auspicious Amherst basket- 
ball game will no doubt be the 
central attraction of the smash. 
The game is billed as a revenge 
match for Williams' drubbing by 
the Jeffs two weeks ago. Many men 
have Invited up the same girls 
they took to that first game, In 
hopes that this time there will be 
a happier outcome. 

Since the Smash was Just sche- 
duled, there will be Just a little 
over a week to get the plans In

tliry go, th(>ir nnisio is compared with that of the "varsity" Stompers, I ments are still a little makeshift.

Phinney's Five, New Frosh Dixielanders,

Wednesday, March 2 - New sounds are rocking the Hathskellar 
three times a week. The creator of this new jazz is the Kre.shman 
grouji, "Phinney's Favored Five". The Stomijers usually use the 
liiithskellar for a practice room, and this new music sounds for all 
the world like the .Stompers playing lumihers they have almost per- 
Iccted - hut not (iiiite. And this is not intended as a slap at the 
Freslunan comho, because the Stompers are in the same musical 
Icaj^iie with the hest professionals. 

The idea for the frosh combo was bom just a few weeks after

Raise for the Faculty 



111 line with the risiii;^ costs of liviii};, the Trustees of Williams 
lui\e decided to riiise the tuition <if students for the coininj; school 
year. Similar increases have been made by other New England 
and I\v League colleges within the past year, and as is the case here, 
most of this added income will be used for salary increases for the 
members ol the laculty. 

Williams is recognized in all educational circles as having one 
of the highest scholastic standings of all colleges in the eountrv. 
This reputation of which everyone connected with the college can 
be justly proud has been gained largely as the result of the small 
classes and the excellent hiciilt)'. With a student-teacher ratio that 
permits a close relationship between the faculty and the under- 
graduate body, Williams has been able to offer an excellent educa- 
tion e(|iialled by few libi'ial arts colleges anywhere. 

Universally reeognizetl as underpaid, teachers play a much 
more important role than their salaries would indicati'. .-\s the edu- 
cators and counselldis of American youths during their intellectii- 
allv formative yc'ars, the faculties of schools and colleges are re- 
s|K)iisihle lor producing leaders ca])able of running businesses and 
tiie government in the years that lie ahead. 

I'arciits send their sons to Williams because here they will 
have a chance to learn and study under an experienced and ex- 
tremely capable faculty. This tuition Increa.se and the salary raises 
and other benefits that it will make ))ossible will enable Williams 
to continue to offer an education of the highest caliber.

MGM has tried its hand at cloak-and-dagger doings in war-

lia.s' much better flix playing this week and the same is true for 
North Adams and Pittsfield, but "Betrayed" is the only one I have 
seen, and this is the reason for the review. Although Clark Gable, 
Lana Turner, Victor Mature and a handful of Briti.sli and Contin- 
ental players are turned loose, they do little to e.xcite interest. Still 
brunette, as when last seen in "Flame and the Flesh", Lana is all 
curves and out of breath a good deal of the time as a suspect Dutch 
widow. Gable runs around in the role of a Dutch Intelligence of- 
ficer and Mature is a patriot embittered into betrayal. Everybody 
in the flicker tries very hard. None of thcin succeeds. 



1)1/ Jim I'allfisoii 

A student walking into the hue and sweat of the basketball 
court does not notice a large double tloor hidden Ijehiiid the rows 
of cluttered stands. Behind it a tall, well-dressed man works cpiiellv 
at a tlesk in a bare brown room. He is Coach .Alex |. Shaw. 

Ill the (weitement caused by his team's bid to the N. C. A. A. 
Tournament, few have stopped to think about this man who.se t(uiet 
efficiency in the many jobs a 
coach has to do, has been an im- 
portant factor in the team's suc- 
cess. The customary restrained 
character of Shaw changes only 
at the opening tap-ofi when he 
joins in competition with oppos- 
ing coaches and graiulstand man- 
agers in screamiiig at the "close " 
calls. The majority of time, how- 
ever, the time between the 
games, "The Prince" is a compa- 
ratively uimoticetl figure, 
/'/r/i/i/ig Ctirccr 
A\ Shaw is a product of the 
Midwest. Born in lyo'r' in Detroit, 
he remained in Michigan as an 
outstanding basketball player 
and coach until his appearance 
on the Williams scene in 1949. .Vs 
a schoolboy, he starred on Det- 
roit s Southeastern High School 
team which won two straight 
state championships in 1925-26. .After working for two years, Al 
then entered .Michigan, receiving his BA in 1932 ami \I.\ in I9'38, 
and starting three years as a center and guard on the basketball 
team. 

Then he playitl pro ball for three years with Detroit, a strong 
team in a niiavvestern league preceding today's NB.\. Meanwhile, 
he took lime out to coach basketball at Dearborn High in Michigan, 
where he marricil in 1934. 'I'lie Sliaws now have an 11 year old son, 
|olni, and a liiu' home on Baxter Road. 

Moves to Ann Arliiir 

In 19'33 he moved to .Ann .Arbor, .Michigan, to begin a twelve 
year teniiri'. interrupted only by three v<'ais in the Navy, coaching 
basketball, football and golf. Ilis basketball teams there compiled 
an outstanding record in a very tough league, winning live league 
championships. 

Oddly enough, he recalls, none of his high school stars made an 
outstanding reputation in college or pro basketball, although many 
|)lavcd regularly. On the contrarv, three made great records as foot- 
ball stars, two. Bob Westfall at Michigan, and Don Dolionv of 
•Michigan State making .All .American, and one. Bill Walterliouse, 
set an e\tra-j)oint record at West Point with Blanchard, Davis, and 
company. .AJ also played tor years with Norm Daniels, Wesleyan 
grid coach. , 

Williaiiix RcronI 

He is now in his sixth year at Williams as basketball coach. 
Ireshman lacrosse coach, and assistant football coach. Overall, his 
(|uiiitets have compiled a creditable record of 74 wins and 39 losses 
and have won one Little Three Championsbip while tying two 
others. 

Included in these wins were a few 'big" ones, such as the vic- 
tories over BC in the 19.50.51 season, who were previous coiKpier- 
ors of C:CNY, later "Cinderella" NIT and NCAA champs. Al also 
remembers the .Army game last year at West Point, which the Ephs 
won 64-57, and a game played at Syracuse against Le Movne a few 
years ago, which Williams also won, although |)re-game estimates 
were concerned only with the point spreaclby which Le Moyne 
would win. 

Discip))oinlnicnl.i 

No team, however, has met with thi' success which this year's 
club has, and over the years he has been attacked by studi-iits for 
failure to win more than he did. In one case in particular, ,A1 arous- 
ed violent opposition from the RECORD, when he did not (ilav 
three key men in a game on housepartv weekend because thev had 
overstepped the Friday night deadline. 

He pointed out other factors troubling the lot of a small-time 
basketball coach. In regard to scheduling, it has proven exceedingly 
difficult to l)lay big" teams, since they do not wish to risk losing, 
and a win will not enhance their reputation. This is evidenced by 
the fact that Dartmouth is discontinuing their series and that all 
past efforts to induce Harvard or ^'ale to play Williams have been 
ill vain. As a result, even an undefeated team has difficultv gaining 
a national reputation. 

S(7i()/rtr.s7ii/).v 

Also, he continued, good athletes are not encouraged to come 
to Williams, unless thev show |)romise .scholastically as well. Shaw 
cited the example of Ed Crawford, 6 foot 7 inch center for the Dart- 
mouth frosh, who dunked in 12 jjoiiits here on February 12. lie had 
contacted Williams, but could receive no support, and went to 
Dartmouth instead. 

His method of coaching, he revealed, is little different from 
many others, but it sheds some light on the various tasks which 
keep him behind that desk in the noisv room off the gym most of 
the day. Each game is mapped out and played over in the coach's 
mind long before and after the actual contest. 
Biiiklinfi a Team 

First in the process of making a winner is to build up a learn 
capable of working together. This involves careful observation of 
the players in practices as well as in the games, and long perusals 
of statistics after the games which might otherwise pa.ss unnoticed 
in the excitement. Thest' include such data as shots taken, where 



taken, percentage made, rebounds, and so forth. 

.Meanwhik' a scout, .sometimes Al himself, busies himself look- 
ing at other teams, anil a very detailed report is made. Someoppon. 
ents, such as Amherst, are scouted two or three times. 
Scoi/Ziiig HcporlH 

For example, not only are the startin)» five and ull their suhs 
noted as to height, weight, number, position and general ability in 
all respects, but exact information is given eoncerning the team's 
offensive and defensive plays and patterns. Typical ((uestions are: 
'Who controlled the tipoff?", "Do they use a pivot man", "If so, 
where':''" "Do they shift or sliile on blocks':',, and "In what area did 
opponents score'P" 

Also the reports deal with the physical aspects of the game. The 
information given here tells .Al how springy the Moor is, the condi- 
tion of the backboards, the sideline distance, the heightli of the 
ceiling, and even the closeness or looseness ol the ollicials. 
/;i/<'r;>;('/(/^'()ii.v 

The next step which ,AI must tak<' is to plan his strategy on the 
lasis of these reports, and to advise his team how to play. For ins- 
tance, in the Dartmouth game here, Wilson was not assigned to 
gu:ird jiidson as originally planned because Judson, as a set shot 
iirtist, would have kept Wilson away from the delensive boardi, 
where he racks up on rebounds. Movies are also shown for Little .3 
contests of the previous year's game. 

CUinic 'I'imc 

Once the game begins, .\l sticks to his team as long as it is do- 
ing well because, as he says, there is no sense making changes while 
you are ahead, and long effort has been made to lind a ((uintit 
which will play as a team. Putting a cold man in a hot game is iii- 
vitiiig disaster. 

Worries beset him, however, when the going is rough, as in the 
Springlield game when (Mullen and Wilson weri' in danger of foul- 
ing out, or as in the Trinity game, when a big lead was narrowed 
to three points late in the contest. He must then rely on experience. 
Finally it is all over, ami he can relax. 
Toitrnaincnts 

Al is looking lorward to Williams' app<'arane<" in Madison 
S(piare CJarden against Canisius. He has already made plans to .see 
the ri'inaining games on the (Griffins' schetlnle. But he will be the 
first to remind Kphmen that Williams has a hit of imfinislied busi- 
ness to tackle belore the (lardeii. In the Lasell Ciymnasium next 
Saturday and at the (Jardeii next Tuesday, the weli-dressed coacli 
ot Williams' basketball will once again heeoine a part of the notice- 
able show that is college basketball. 

But ill the meanwhile. .Al will eoiitinue to sit at the desk in the 
bare room oil the gym reading all the newspapers lor results, peru- 
sing scouting reports, arranging with his manager transportation 
for the players, and all the other things which keep him from llic 
public eye.

Purple Routs VIesleyan, 75 ■ 49, 
To Tie for Little Three Lead; 
Moro, Wilson Set Scoring Pace 



By Stu Auerbach 

Mlddletown, Feb. 26 - Canyhig 
the NCAA bid In their hip pockets, 
the Wilhams College basketball 
team romped over a weak Wesley- 
an five. 75-49. In the Alumni Caae 
here tonight. The Eph's win places 
them in a tie with Amherst in the 
race for the Little Three Crown, 
with the title depending on next 
Saturday's battle at Williams. 

The Cards started out as if they 
were going to make a game of it. 
They stole the tap, and within 
fifteen seconds, their captain and 
high scorer. Bob Hazen. had driven 
in for a layup. In the next 45 se- 
conds he scored two more driving 
shots to put Wesleyan ahead, 6-0. 
After calling time out. the Ephs 
knotted the score on three buckets 
in two minutes. Tony Moro hit on 
a hook shot and a layup. while 
Ron Wilson got a rebound. The 
Cards pulled ahead Just once more, 
gaining a 10-6 margin on a Jump 
shot by center Larry Tremper and 
a layup by Don Nunes. After gain- 
ing back the lead, the game was 
all Williams'. 

Moro at Best 

More important to the Ephs than 
the margin of victory was the su- 
perior play of Moro, who played 
his best game in weeks. He was 
high scorer with 19 points. Be- 
sides his scoring, his passes were 
sharp, and his rebounding, even 
though against much smaller op- 
ponents, was good. Wilson was the 
Eph's second high scorer with 16. 
while Bu.ss had 14, his best ef- 
fort since the Dartmouth game. 

Williams didn't put on any really 
long scoring spurUs, getting their 
points In clumps of five as they 
.slowly and methodically built up 
their lead to its maximum of 28 
points. With about seven minutes 
left. Coach Al Shaw emptied his 
bench giving the substitutes a 
chance to get into the game. 

Hazcn Sharp 

The set shooting of Bob Hazen, 
who was the Wesmen's high scorer 
with 19, kept Wesleyan in the 
game. They were hurt when, early 
in the game. Don Nunes was eject- 
ed for deliberately fouling Tom 
While as he was in the clear driv- 
ing in for a layup. Nunes reached 
out and .shoved White into the 
supporting posts of the basket 
after White had shot the ball. He 
made the basket. Hazen was the 
only man in double figures for 
the Cards, rhe next high scorer 
was Tremper with 6. 

The Ephs played sloppy ball, out 
their ragged edges can be traced to 
the calibre of their opponents. It's 
hard to be sharp all the time a- 
gainst a poor team.

earlier this season. 

McCarthy Sparks Canisius 

Canisius is sparked by junior 
guard John McCartiiy. McCarthy, 
who stands an even six feet, was 
the "sophomore of the year" last 
season in the New York area. He 
has a twenty point per game aver- 
age over a two year period and was 
labeled by Dell's annual basketball 
magazine as one of the east's most 
outstanding players. Some writers 
have compared McCarthy favora- 
bly with Bob Cousy, former Holy 
Cross eager who is now a star 
performer for the NBA Boston 
Celtics. Canisius will probably 
play without the services of Coach i 
Joe Curran. who has been ill the I 
past week. I 

If the Ephmen manage to get I 
by the potent Griffin five, they 
will travel to Philadelphia the i 
weekend of March 11-12 for the' 
Eastern Regional quarter finals. ' 
Two victories in the City of Bro- 
therly Love would take the "team | 
of destiny" to Kansas City and the 
NCAA finals. 



Saturday. Feb. 26 - The Wil- 
liams squa.sh team returned to 
the winning side of the ledger to- 
day by defeating an underdog Wes- 
leyan .squad, 8-1, at the Lasell 
squash courts. The previous day, 
the same team dropped a heart- 
breaking decision to Harvard at 
the latter's courts. Harvard was 
rated first in the nation in inter- 
collegiate circles la.st year, and a 
Williams win would have been an 
up.set. 

Against the Cardinals, the Eph 
racquet-wielders had little diffi- 
culty as they swept through the 
visitoi'.s below the number one 
po.sition. Only George Kesel. the 
Williams first man, ran into trou- 
ble as his opponent exiiibited a 
display of power and guile to de- 
feat him in five close games. Tire 
final game went to deuce before 
Kesel fell in a three out of five 
series by a 3-1 count. 

Harvard Match Close 

The Harvard match was an en- 
tirely different story as the deci- 
sion was in doubt up until the very 
last point. The Eph winners were 
Scott Wood at three, Mark Cluett ITlircc crown 
at four, Ned Heppenstall at six. 
! and Ted Lindsay at eight. Kesel, 
Paul Quinn, John Wierdsma, John 
Barton, and Sam Eells also saw 
action. Tire Harvard star player 
i Ben Heckscher downed Kesel in 
a 3-0 match. 

The frosh squash team had little 
trouble with either Harvard or 
Wesleyan as they won their match- 
es 6-3 and 9-0. The only surprise 
for the Eph yearlings was OUie 
Stafford's loss to the Crimson 
number one player. Ken

Saturday, Feb. 26 - Coach Ed 
Bullock's varsity wrestlers wrap- 
ped up their second Little Three 
championship in succession on the 
mats in the Lasell Gym this after- 
noon. Williams took complete con- 
trol after losing the opening match 
to win by the score of 16-10. Both 
Bob Koster at 147 and Captain 
Bobby Little at 157 remained un- 
defeated in this crucial match, 
Koster by forfeit and Little by 
pinning his opponent. This im- 
pressive victory brought the Pur- 
plr record for the season to five 
wins and two losses. 

In the first match of the day,

With a low scoring; system in the dixiiij;, Buster CJrossman was

M-m-mon,

Saturday, Feb. 26 - The Wil- 
liams varsity hockey team played 
a disappointing tie with Hamilton 
today on home ice. Bob Bethune, 
Mac Fiske, and Bob Leinbach scor- 
ed for Williams. Williams opened 
the scoring at 10:59 of the first 
period when Dick Flood passed to 
Mac Fiske, who countered on a 
back-hand shot into the upper 
left-hand corner. 

Jack Taylor tied up the game 
for Hamilton early in the second 
period. The Blue and White took 
a 2-1 lead at 6:00 on a goal by Joe 
Regan. Williams quickly came 
back when Dick Gallim swung the 
cage and passed to Bethune who 
blasted the puck in for the score. 
Leinbach Ties Game 

Three minutes later, at 10:12. 
J. Burns beat Marr to give Ham- 
ilton a one goal lead for the se- 
cond time. At 15:04 Howie Pat- 
terson passed to Fiske who took 
an unsuccessful shot. Bob Lein- 
bach rapped in the rebound to 
knot the score at 3-3. 

In the final period, the Purple 
outshot Hamilton eleven to eight 
but neither team was able to score. 
One sudden-death overtime period 
was played in which Williams con- 
trolled the puck, but was unable to 
break the tie.

THE WILLIAMS RECORD, WEDNESDAY, MAHClll 2, 1955 



Dixielanders Add to Repertoire 

Dixie in Sloinin'r Sli/lc 
Yet when it cainc to fif;iiriiin out tlu'ir iinangt'iin-iits, etc., it 
is obvious that tlie licsluuaii j^rou)) iliil ape the StoinpiTS to a ci-rtiiiii 
extent. Tliis is because only one of the members of Plu'nney's Five 
had e\ei plavecl in a clixiehuul banil bi'fore, and theri' were few 
fixed ideas about jazz styU\ Even now, inaiiv of their riffs, breaks, 
and choruses are in Stomper style, if not exactly mimickinj^ tlie 
Spring Street j^roup. It is only waduallv that they are developinj; 
their own indiviilual style. The most notable siniihirity to the 
Stompers is that the two combos q- 
have the same instrumentation, 
except that in Phinney's Five, the 
bass instrument Is a Tuba Instead 
of a String Bass. 

In jive circles, a band makes its 
debut by playing for pay. Phinney's 
Five made theirs during the Win- 
ter Carnival when they played for 
a party at the Deke house Friday 
night. According to all reports, 
their opening was very successful. 
The second engagement of their 
professional career came the next 
day when they played two rendi- 
tions at the Stomper-Tigertown 
Five concert. A week later, Phin- 
ney's Five traveled to Amherst and 
played in three houses after the 
basketball game. Amherst, which 
has no group to compare with our 
Stompers, went wild over their 
vigorous dixieland strains. 



It has been said that all a jazz 
band needs is a catchy name and 
an arrangement of "The Saints". 
Until just this week, the Fi'osh 
combo had neither. Their reper- 
toire had contained all the other 
stand-bys such as "Darktown," 
"Muskrat Ramble," "Panama," 
and "Basin Street". But they had 
never gotten around to whipping 
up a version of "The Saints". By 
popular demand, they are now 
working on it, and they may have 
it ready by the coming weekend 
when they are playing in the Rath- 
skellar for the Frosh-Soph Smash 
and in several fraternity parties 
afterwards. 

The band has been without a 
name until just this week also. 
"Phinney's Favored Five" was the 
tag that was finally picked. Pre- 
viously they have called them- 
selves "The Purple Ramblers", 
"The Tailgate Eight", and "The 
Route Two Ramblers". Over house- 
parties, they called themselves the 
"Deans Team", because they had 
induced Dean Lamson, who blows 
a hot clarinet, to sit in at their 
session. 

Band Members 

As with most bands, "Phinney's 
Five" has not five members, but 
seven. And it isn't strictly a Fresh- 
man group either, for Dave Ford, 
a Junior in the Phi Delt house, has 
recently joined the group. Ford is 
the group's banjo player. The 
leader of Phinney's Five is Spense 
Jones, a driving Trombonist. Fred 
Clifford on the comet and Bob 
Kingsbury on the Clarinet com- 
plete the trio of solo Instruments. 
Don Morse on the Drums. Howell 
Pric.;, the Piano player, and Tom 
Jones on the Tuba fill out the ros- 
ter. They even have a booking 
agent — he is Dave Cook '58. 

Only the Cornetist, Pi'ed Clif- 
ford, has played any Dixie before 
coming to Williams — he played 
in a small combo during the sum- 
mer. Yet the real professional of 
the group is Don Morse, the drum- 
mer. He had his own dance band in 
high school, and he has appeared 
on several radio and television 
shows. 




Lecturer Galbraith 



plate of vegetables". This attitude, 
he stated, has deep roots stem- 
ming from the extravagant ten- 
dencies of princes. A resistance 
grew up against state spending, 
and the desire to protect the man 
of enterprise was justified. 
National Defense and Foreign Aid 

Galbraith argued that govern- 
ment expenditures are too small, 
and we should spend more on na- 
tional defense and foreign aid. In 
these times when we have enough 
tobacco, cars, and gasoline and 
"sobriety after 6 o'clock which is 
a mark of eccentricity," we should 
avoid "lowering the boom against 
resources going to the State". 

In recent years and especially 
in the time of the great depression, 
economists have been more con- 
cerned with the question of no use 
of resources than the allocation 
of resources. With unemployment 
at a high level, it was hard to 
find time to worry about alloca- 
tion. Also, the war years diverted 
interest from the problem when 
overuse and inflation were the 
major concerns. 

But the time has come, argued 
Mr. Galbraith, "to re-examine 
this problem and restore to it 
some prestige it had in economics 
50 to 100 years ago".

For the most it will be only a one 
day weekend — the girls will come 
up Saturday and leave Sunday. 
Piist on the agenda will be a beer 
blast in the Rathskellar Satuiday 
afternoon. Either the freshman 
combo "Phinney's Five" or the 
Stompers will keep the place 
jumping witli jazz. 

Following the party in the Rath- 
skellar will be dlimer and the bas- 
ketball game. After the game, a 
dance is scheduled In the Student 
Union. The music will be furnished 
either by the Purple Knights, who 
highlighted the last Frosh-Soph 
Smash, or by a phonograph. This 
latter suggestion of having a re- 
cord hop worked out well at the 
Pieshman dance over houseparties, 
according to many frosh. 



Tankmen . . . 

Dietz easily won the 440 yard free- 
style, with Sandy McComber plac- 
ing third to give the Ephmen a 
46-31 lead and the meet. The Wes-

16-4 lead in points. Captain Bob 
Little kept his undefeated status 
as he quickly pinned Chuck Wells 
of Amherst in 1;39 of the first 
period. Jack Barker ended his 167 
pound match in like manner, pin- 
ning the visitors' Bob Allen with 
only 2:54 gone in the opening 
period. 

The final two matches saw Wil- 
liams on the bottom, but Amherst 
was too far behind to have a math- 
ematical chance to win. In the 
177 pound class Al Reed of the 
Purple was decisioned by Fred Fel- 
lo in a close match by the score 
of 8-5. Powerful Dune Patten of 
Amherst dominated his encounter 
with Bill Fall in the unlimited di- 
vision through two periods until 
he succeeded in pinning the Pur- 
ple wrestler at 4:41 of the third 
period to make the final score 
16-10.

Glee Club to Give 
Concert March 4 



Berkeley Institute Joins 
In Choral Production 



Wednesday, Mar. 2 - The Wil- 
liams College Glee Club will give 
a joint concert with the Berkeley 
Institute in the Brooklyn Academy 
of Music Fiiday, March 4, at 8:30 
p.m. The group will be directed by 
Walter Nollncr, and Mrs. Doris 
Vercoe Solomon, director of choral 
music at Berkeley. The concert 
will be the first joint appearance 
of tiip two groups. A special feature 
concerns selections from the Henry 
Purcell opera "Dido and Aeneas". 
The portions of the opera not per- 
formed will be narrated, enabling 
the audience to grasp the work as 
a whole. 

Five Concerts Remain 

Singing the title role of Dido, 
Queen of Carthage, will be Evelyn 
McGairity, soloist with the Robert 
Shaw Chorale. Belinda, lady in 
wailing to Dido, will be sung by 
Ruth Ann Fleming, soloist on the 
Firestone television program, who 
has loured with Fred Waring's 
group. 

Other concerts scheduled this 
season are with tlie Smith College 
Glee Club in Williamstown, March 
27; the Wellesley College Choir at 
Welle.sley April 16; chapel service 
with the Smith College Glee Club 
in Northampton, April 17; the New 



All Experience 

To further his point. Dr. Craw- 
ford pointed out as a segment of 
his hypothesis that any and every 
part of our experience, any stimu- 
lus at all which impinges on the 
human organism, is stored away In 
the mind. He said that the "nega- 
tive emotions" were a part of these 
stimuli, and were the ones to be 
concerned about. 

Dr. Ciawford maintained that 
the.se emotions could be received 
from contact with another person. 
He went on to point out that our 
society has become so complex that 
there are ever-increasing ways of 
spreading these negative emotions. 

Defies lAigiQ 

When a.sked if an individual 
could not combat this threat by 
exercising his logic, Dr. Ci'awford 
a.s.serted that he believed this was 
not passible. He also said that posi- 
tive emotions, .such as Joy and 
love, also failed to block this haz- 
ard. 

Asked to cite proof for his as- 
sertions. Dr. Crawford replied that 
he had only been presenting his 
own hypotliesis. He proceeded to 
cast dispersion on what he con- 
sidered to be the cumbersome me- 
thods used by today's psycholo- 
gists In gathering proof.

Honor Roll. This percentage is al- 
most identical with past records. 
Thomas Synnot gained the second 
highest average in his class with 
a 10.8. Stuart Crampton and Ro- 
bert Young round out the top five 
with a 10.4. Deerfleld had the 
honor of sending five students to 
the Honor Roll. The Nichols 
School, Exeter, Groton, Scarsdale 
High and St. Albans each had two 
honor students apiece. 

Tlie Sophomore Class was con- 
spicuous for its lack of Dean's 
List students. All In all, 18'f of the 
class, forty-six in numbers, earned 
a position on the coveted Dean's 
t Team. Last year's sophomores 
. placed sixty on the List while the 
number of 1955 sophs with schol- 
astic honors amounted to seventy- 
• iiuee. It l.s an interesting bit of 
irony to note that the class of '57 
hist year was called "one of the 
brightest". 

Dcnison. Gilman Tie 
Sherm Denlson and Dick Gil- 
man were high men on the soph 
totem pole with 10.6 averages. 
Bob Kaplan placed third with a 
10.4 and Dick Fearon earned 10.2. 
Class President. Dick Repp i schol- 
astic leader of the class last year* 
dropped to a 10.17. closely follow- 
ed by Bill Crawford and Marc 
Levensteln who came through with 
10.0's. Dick Shuehan rounded out 
the first eight of the class with 
a 9.8. 

The Class of 1956 is ranked as 
an average junior group In re- 
gards to scholastic ability. 31'/ 
were placed on the Dean's List 
which compares favorable to the 
records achieved by past classes. 
The Class of 1956 started off Its 
college career with forty-eight 
men gaining Honor Roll status. 
The next year, the number was 
boosted to sixty and finally, this 
year, to a peak .seventy-six. 
Becker Leads Class 
Junior Seymour Becker emerged 
on the top of his class with an 
11.2 average. John Crocker and 
Carl Silverman trailed with 11.0's.

Dean Scott Urges 
"Mutual Respect" 
In Joint Meeting 

College, Social Councils 
To Consider Reeves 
Report On Rushing 



Monday, Feb. 28 - In a short 
Joint College Council-Social Coun- 
cil meeting held tonight In Bax- 
ter Hall. Dean Robert C. L. Scott 
emphasized the duties and respon- 
sibilities of the new representatives 
and commented generally on the 
problems of college government. 

Stressing the fact that the two 
councils and the administration 
must maintain "mutual respect" 
for each other to Insure good col- 
lege government, he pointed out 
the fallibility of the "anti-frater- 
nity myth", because the "college 
community is a corporate com- 
munity and, being so. all parts 
must be interdependent". 
Advocates Better Communication 

Finally, he noted the difficulty 
encountered In the past years, 
and strongly recommended some 
means, such as now practiced at 
Amherst and Wesleyan. by which 
better student government-college 
communication might be obtained. 
Such methods, he concluded, might 
take the form of more frequent 
college a.ssemblies of some sort. 

More specifically. Dean Scott 
advised the newly-elected house 
presidents to take their responsi- 
bilities seriously to insure con- 
tinued trust in the fraternities by 
the college. Enumerating such 
rules as the hours in which girls 
are allowed in the houses and re- 
gulations on drinking, driving, and 
parties, he pointed out that the 
new presidents will be expected to 
take appropriate disciplinary ac- 
tion when necessary. 

After the joint meeting, the two 
groups split up. Approved by the 
College Council as new Discipline 
Committee members were Dick 
Repp '57, Larry Nilsen '58. Tom 
Yankus '56. Don Myers '56. Dick 
Fearon '57. and Phil McKean '58. 
The committee is headed by Bill 
Jenks '56. who succeeds automa- 
tically to the chairmanship as 
Vice-President of the College 
Council. 

President Gardner then closed 
the meeting by distributing copies 
of the "Reeves Report" on rush- 
ing, sent on to the new Council for 
consideration by the old Council. 
Gardner urged the members to 
give it careful scrutiny in prepara- 
tion for discussion next Monday. 
Meanwhile the house presidents 
have discussed the proposals with

cies in which chaplains were plac- 
ed in Industry, mainly in the Ak- 
ron-Cleveland rubber plants, with 
their salaries coming both from 
labor and management.

Social Issue Causes 

Comment At Wesleyan 



Saturday, Mar. 5 - As a result 
of a recent College Body's cam- 
paign against discrimination In 
the fraternities at Wesleyan. a 
committee was formed to study 
the problem. On the basis of the 
committee's report, the student 
body is now going to be given a 
chance to vote on a referendum re- 
commending the deletion of dis- 
criminating clauses in fraternity 
constitutions, at least on a nation- 
wide scale. 

Commenting on the referendum. 
Victor L. Butterfield. president of 
the university said that he had 
"doubts as to whether the recom- 
mendations are either wise or 
right". Mr. Butterfield <iuestioned 
"that the committee's proposal 
would help correct such abuses as 
there are", and said that It seemed 
"to be tar less effective education- 
ally than the policy we have been 
following".

Dean Lamson Names Committee 
To Select W Junior Advisers; 
Eight Men To Review Applicants 

Saturday, March 5 - Roy Lamson. Dean of Freshmen, announ- 
ced recently tliat eielit undergraduates ha\e l)een appointed to the 
committee that will select ne.vt year's junior advisors. Tliis ff^ouyi. 
whicli is coniijosed entirely of former JA's, will choose tliirty jimior 
advisors and twenty alternates from sophomore applicants. 

As may he inferred from the name, Junior .Vdvisors are mem- 
bers of the Junior Class who live in the various entries of the fresh- 
man dormitories. Tliey are an ini])ortant hel]! in intcf^rating the 
fresiimeti to collej^e life. This has lieen an especially important facet 
in tiie past two years because- deferred rushinj; has limited the 
freshman's contact with other u]-)perclassmen. 
liiisis for Selection 

According; to Dcaii Laiusoii, the Jumor .\dvisor is ehoseii for 
his "iiofential serx ice", and he nmst have a "genuine interest " in the 
college and college life. The selections aic made on the basis of 
respoiisihility, judgeinent. the ability to work with others, and job 
interest. Though frateiiiifv affiliation is not involved in the selee- 
tioiis, it is an unwritten ride that no house shall have nioie than 
foiir JA's. 

Any member of the cla.ss of '57 inav apply by giving his name to 
his hoiise president or. if he is a non-affiliate, to Dave Sterling. .'Vp- 
plicatioiis may also be made thrtnigh the Dean's office or through 
anv member of the committee. Lamson has designated Maieli 10 
as the deadline for applications, and he hopes to aiuKniiice the se- 
lections before Spring \'acatioii. 

The selection committee is comprised of Bill Jenks. Kirt Gard- 
ner, Jim Edgar, Bill Montgomery, Dave Sterling, Sandy Laitman, 
Gary Leinbach and Mac Fiske. Their first ineeting was held at 
7; 36 Thursday evening, 



Saturday. Mar. 5 - This past 
week was a difficult one for edu- 
cational institutions. Within four 
days three prominent educators 
lashed out at the present condi- 
tions and policies which they 
maintain are rapidly obscuring the 
true purposes of education in the 
United States. 

On February 26 the first blasts 
were sounded when Dean Lawrence 
D. Haskew of the Texas College of 
Education and President of the 
American Association of Colleges 
for Teacher Education, ridiculed 
the increasing emphasis upon 
"mimeographed syllabi, printed 
catalogues, colored sound movies" 
and the like, and maintained that 
the goal of training good teachers 
is "lost In the shuffle of education- 
al trappings and ornaments ". 
Professional "Amateurs" 

Of even greater Interest to Wil- 
liams this winter was a speech by 
Dr. Buell Gallagher, President of 
the City College of New York at 
a conference sponsored by the Na- 
tional Education Association on 
February 28. Drawing a parallel 
between Soviet "amateurs" and 
our college athletes, he declared 
that "the players are hired by the 
highest bidder and play for the 
pay they get 

Continuing, he said that "when- 
ever you have a big time team, you 
have a professional team. The two 
go together. If anyone can chal- 
lenge that, I'll eat my hat." He 
suggested a more realistic ap- 



Saturday, Mar. 5 - Once again 
the ever-gay Billville campus will 
undergo a sensational change 
when an immeasurable amount of 
femininity arrives this afternoon 
for the second Frosh-Soph Slo.sh 
"March weather conditions com- 
pelled the Soph Council to alter 
the original Smash title i. Tliis 
twenty-four hour affair will be 
centered around the return match 
against Amherst in basketball. 
The NCAA-bound Eph five will 
attempt to teach humility to the 
proud Jeffs who spoiled their un- 
beaten record two weeks ago. 

The Slosh provides a virtually 
unbroken string of activities. Dur- 
ing the course of the afternoon, 
six athletic contests will be waged 
against the visiting Jeffs. Starting 
at 2:00 p.m.. the spectators will

Saturday, Mar. 5 - Revenge will 
be the cry in the Lasell Gym to- 
night as the once-beaten Eph five 
tangles with Amherst, the only 
team to beat them in a game which 
will decide the Little Three bas- 
ketball Championship. The Jeffs 
are out to make it two In a row, 
and incidentally make Wilhams a 
team that could possibly win the 
National Championship, but still 
lose the "potted ivy" crown. 

Athletic Director Prank R. 
Thoms predicts a turnaway crowd 
similar to the one at the Dart- 
mouth game in January. He says 
that there will be no advanced 
sale and seats will be taken on a 
"first come, first served basis". 
The doors will be closed and no 
one will be let in after the limit 
of 1200 is admitted. Thoms ad- 
vises all students to get to the 
gym early. The game starts at 
8:15. the freshmen play at 6:30. 
and the doors will be opened at 6. 
Scott Big Threat 

Trimming Amherst has been 
something that the Eph five has 
been thinking about since the 
Jeffs stopped Williams' winning 
oUeak al 14 two Weeks ago by a 
68-60 score. To many players and 
students, beating Amherst is as 
important as going to the NCAA. 
With the pressure of the only un- 
defeated record in the country off 
the Ephs, this game could be a dif- 
ferent story from the last. 

But in order to beat Amherst, 
Williams will have to stop the set 
shooting of little Pete Scott, who 
averaging 15 points a game, scor- 
ed 25 against the Ephs. Most of 
his points come on long set shots, 
of w'hlch he missed few. He set 
a new Amherst scoring record of 
39 points last week as he paced the 
Jeffs to a 79-48 victory over MIT. 

Amherst Defense 

Another thorn in William's side 
will be the Jeffs' defense, rated 
tops among the small colleges of 
the nation. In the last game the 
Ephs had trouble solving their 
tricky zone, but much work has 
been done in the last two weeks. 
Last time the Jeffs concentrated 
on stopping the Ephs' drives up 
the middle, but letting them shoot 
from the outside. But their below 
par 29.4 shooting percentage wasn't 
up to the task. However, if Bill 
Cullen hits on his sets as he

Saturday, Mar. 5 - The world 
famed Trio di Ti-ieste will present 
a concert in Chapin Hall Tuesday 
at 8:15 p.m. Their appearance is 
sponsored without charge by the 
Thompson Concert Committee. 
Formed in 1933 while Its three 
members were still in the Con- 
seivatory of Music, the Trio Is one 
of the oldest chamber music en- 
sembles in the world. This piano, 
violin and 'cello combination were 
brought together while the musi- 
cians were in their teens. 

At every one of its performances, 
the Trio di Tileste plays entirely 
by memory. Its large repertoire is 
completely memorized which adds 
even more excitement to their per- 
formance. A Boston Herald re- 
viewer said. "In all my experi- 
ence I do not recall anything 
which equals la,st night's great 
success by three young musicians 
who comprise the Trio".

Freshman Dorm Hours 

III ;i recent joint iiieetiiii; ol the Oolk'i^e and Social Councils 
Dean Scolt acklressed the two uncUTi;racluate <;oveniini^ bodies and 
stron^llv cnipbasized that there is definitely no "plot" in the admin- 
istration as^ainst tbc Iratcrnitv svstcin. Pointins; out that after the 
war it was Dean Urooks who re\ ivcd and i'ncoinaa;etl a stroni^ anil 
acti\e student a;o\cnniieiit at Williams, he stated, as this K1'XX)R1) 
board has maintained, tliat the aihninistration is workinj; for the 
general welfare of the Williams coinminiity. 

Now the problem of freshman dormitory boms has again arisen 
and Ijoth tbe (X; and SC will probably begin to .seek a workable 
solution which will prow more ailyantageons to the freshmen. Thi' 
present honis whicli are pcran'tted. witb priyileges on special week- 
ends, are considerably more liberal than those of most colleges. 

IJeeanse of the relative isolation of the freshmen from tbe rest 
ol the college. howe\'er. ]5erhaps a system will be worked out which 
will allow special boms on Saturday exenings of bonie football 
games, as well as proyidiiig for late horns on bouso])arty weekends, 
frosb-soph smashes. Homecoming, and some of the most important 
athletic weekends during the winter and spring. 

Dean Scott indicateil that tbe administration is more than vyill- 
iiig to discuss any specific plan which tbe student body draws up. 
It is MOW up to die freshinan council or the CIC or SO to formulate 
a detailed proposal concerning tbe horns and weekeiuls; this ])lan 
should definitely jiroyide for someone, probably the entry repre- 
seiitati\es. to lia\e both the aiithoritv and tbe responsibility for 
conduct ill tbe dorms, liere indeed is an opportunity for the imder- 
giaduates and the adniinistriitioii to work together for the benefit, 
not merely of die freshmen but of Williams C^ollege as a whole. 



650 ON YOR DIAL 



This year, with the most jjotent Williams fixe exer to bit the 
courts in action, the demand for adeipiate eoxeragc lias been great 
on all the news serxices of the College, .-\inong those who have been 
proxiding this better coverage is radio station WMS, xyhich has 
broadcast ex cry bonie and away game of the season. 

■'We hope to be able to continue this service," says Verii Squires 
'56, President of tlie station, "but as of iioxv we are liaviiig our dif- 
ficulties." Probably chief among diese difficulties is tbe financial 
problem. Formerly, WMNB of North Adams tuned in on the WMS 
broadcast, and shared the costs with tbem. However, WMNB sports 
commentator Bucky Ikillot is under contract to cover another ijro- 
gram next Tuesday when the Ephs play in Madison Sfpiare Garden, 
and this leaxes all tbe fiiuiiiciai responsibility up to WMS. .Mtboiigb 
Williams is a member of the NCJ.A.'V, it xvill still cost them a uiini- 
niiim of .'i>;5() to get into the Garden and buy a telephone line to carry 
the plav-bv-jilay deseri])tioii back to tbe studios in the cellar of 
Ba.xter Hall. "Since diis broadcast is being presented by ]iopular 
re(|nest, anyone xvlio xvould like to help finance it is more dian 
xvelconie to do so," commented S<|iiires xvryly. He added that if 
the team ever gets to Kansas Caty, tbe costs of siieb on tbe spot 
coverage xvonld be around $250.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 



,\hucli -2, 1955 

To the Editor of the KECOKD: 

111 view of possible misconceptions that may result bom the 
statement made hy Mr. Jerome \V. Hrush, Cbairinan ol the Sub- 
eonimittee on Fialernity Dining Service of the Cradiiate Committee 
of Williams College Social Units, on the subject of college billing 
tor Irateniity boaril charges, published in voiir issue ol Kebruary 2'}, 
1955, I heliexe the role of the College I'reasurer's Office in this 
matter should l)e madi' clear. 

This idea xyas first suggested by the fraternity alumni repre- 
sentatixes on the Craduate C'onimittee in the establisbnient ol the 
principles of ojieration of Fraternity Dining Serx iee. .As 'I'reasurer 
of the College 1 was asked by that cominittee if I xvould be willing 
to bill for board charges. I said I xvould, if reciuested to lU) so by 
the fraternity. Choice of college billing was left entirely to volun- 
tary decision by each hou.se. 

Bills are issued by my office only after receipt of xvritten state- 
ments from the house treasurers of the names ol tlii' students and 
tlie amounts to he charged. Similarly no disbursement ol moneys 
collected is made except u])on written order of the house treasurer. 
He may expend 502 of available funds for looel or SO*/, as he deter- 
mines. He may expend 20% on xvages or 5()'i, as he determines. :\t 
any time he may xvitlidraxv the entire ainoiint to the credit ol bis 
account. 

College participation in and support of the entire F.D.S. pro- 
ject is for the purpose of giving assistance to the fraternities in O])- 
eratiiifr their dining rooms on tbe most etlicient and econoinical 
basis, it is not a step in tbe process of abolition ol the Irateniity 
system by xveakening it, but rather an effort to continue fraternity 
dining by improving it and making it econoniically sound. 

Sincerely, 

Charles A. Foehl, Jr. 

Treasurer of Williams College 



. . . THANKS! 



To till- fxlitor of thc> RECORD: 

Hiissell C>'ar|H'iiter, Williams "54, a neighbor ol mine, is respon- 
sible for placing in my hands a column from the R1''.(X^HD, xvritten 
by Ted ('raig. concerning iiix' election as President ol the National 
Collegiate .Vtbletic .Association at the .\imiial (ainxt'utioii in Nexy 
York. I le said .some xcry kind things about mi', so kind in fact that 
I am fi'arbil that I shall not he able to lixe up to them. However. 
I shall try. 

1 have been familiar for a long time with the athletic ])olieies 
and practices at Williams College, and I haxc no reason to beliexc 
they are otberxx'ise than as described b\ Ted (aaig. In fact 1 should 
be iniieli disajipointetl and surprised il there exer comes a time 
xvheii 1 shall baxe any substantial indication to the contrary. Mv 
ac(|uaiiitaiice witb and respect for the men xvbo have b<'eii respon- 
sihle for these policii'S has been considerable and leads me to make 
the above statements. Furthermore, my observation has been usual- 
ly confined, so far as actual competition lias been eoncerned, to the 
other side of the field or floor, wbere one is likely to be critical. 

It is not clear in my mind how the NC.X.V, xvith its 414 meinber 
collegers, comes to a realization such as the column suggests, but 1 
may sav that there appears to be more unity in the menibership ol 
the Association for constructive ])i()gress in intercolU'giate athletics 
than at any time since 1 have bei'ii accpiainted xvith its prograin. 
Witb the licdp of Williams College and your able representatives 
to the NCAA I trust diis trend will continue. 

Sincerely yours,

1)1/ Hid filial/ li(iiik\ '5H 

It lakes all kinds to make a xvurld. While most students in a 
heallhv college ccnmnnnitx' like Williams are conleni to collect 
lUidniek's bills and cbapcl cuts, the rumor has recently been circu- 
lated that a ei-rtain aberrated freshman lias bci'ii (|iiietly amassing 
a uiodesi collection ol musical instrmneiits including a pipe organ 
in bis exi'U more niodest cubical in Sage Hall. 

The freshman was finally located mider his bed. xvhere lie was 
attempting to open a coconut with a corkscrexv, and persuaded to 
gix (' tlie lolloxving aieomit ol the |)urehase ol the pipe organ, xvliich 
actually exists, taking ui) a consiili'iable aiuoimt ol room in bis sin 
gle, xvhifh was obviously not hnill for that sort ol thing. 
Eiiiiii Eriicn 

The organ, xvliith stands about sexcn feet high, xvas the first 
instruinenl built bx llemv fahen ol Nexx' ^ork who, nndiscouraged 
bx' the resnll ol his lirst try. went on to become the most famous 
.American organ builder ol the iiinteenth i-entmx . II has 122 xx'ooden 
and metal pipes enclosed in a mahogany ease which are, aside Iroin 
its aniiipiilx', the instrument s most xaluable asset, being ol exceed- 
ingly pure tone. 

Tlie xvhole business xxas purchased shorllx alter (^hrislnias 
\'acation by the ficslnnan (who saxs he bad a bad hangoxcr and 
doesn't remember the transaetiiai at all) lor $100, and a promise 
to get it out ol Mr. Dempsev's shop xxilhin txvenlx-lour hours. 
True to the ideals ol a Williams Freshinan. he reinoxcd the instru- 
ment that alternoon, and it was broiiglil np Main Sticet playing 
"Onward Christian Soldiers . "Wlii'ii the Saints ( loiiie Marching In", 
and other religious pieces. When linallx' installed in the room, all 
the notes still plax'cd; in lad when the xx'arm dry air shrank the 
valxes in some ol the loxx'cr notes, they could not be prex'ented from 
playing, proxiding a cheerlul ilioiie base and a Seoltish llavor that 
can be x'ery interesting in a liacb prelude. 
/((■(// Hiiriiaiii 

Altliougb the prii'c paid liir tbe organ xvas $100, Don Patterson, 
who oxxns an early Ameriean organ himself, estimates its xalne up 
to $1,000. Ml-. Denipsex'. xxho heard Ibis with stoic calm, got his 
rexcuge b\' selling the same beshman ( xxho xvas. by noxv. putty in 
anvbodxs hands) an earix' .Amciiean melodiaii. The inelodian is 
run bx' a xacunni cleaner, and lakes up ex en more spaei' in the room 
than the pipe organ. 

So lar. the Music Deparlnient has ln'cn able to niaintain an air

Monday, Feb. 28 - Sparked by 
the fme shooting of Sophomore 
guard Bill CuUen, and the effec- 
tive passing of Co-Captains Bon 
Wilson and Tony Moro, the Wil- 
liams varsity basketball team scor- 
c-a their sixteenth win of tne sea- 
son over a fighting Middlebury 
live, i2-oi, tonignt in Lasell gym. 
1 ine I'urple neeaed a 13 point spurt 
^aiiV in the second half to clinch 
the victory, wiih the fine rebound- 
ing of Middlebury's Tom Hart, the 
nation s leading rebounder, pre- 
venting the game from being a 
walk-away. 

The first period opened with 
both teams employing a zone de- 
fense, CuUen and Wally Jensen 
playing the ouUside for the Purple. 
Middlebury, obviously up for the 
game, got off to a quick ^-0 lead, 
before CuUen hit on the first of 
his many pops from the outside. 
Anfinbfen hit on a jump shot, but 
CuUen drove for two and sank an- 
other from the corner to close the 
gap to 8-6, With the Purple team- 
ing on Sonny Dennis and Hart, 
Anfinbfen drove for two baskets, 
but CuUen, who could not miss, 
scored again, and the Ephmen 
went ahead 13-10 with Cullen hav- 
ing 11 of the first 13. 

Cullen Hits 

With a little more than six min- 
utes left in the first half, Moro 
passed beautifully to Jensen, Cul- 
len popped again, and the lead 
was five points. The Panthers 
could not work inside, and their 
guards set often, letting Tom Hart 
rebound for the scores. 



The Ephmen, passing well, were 
unable to put in the easy ones, 
and Middlebury fought back to 
gain a momentary 22-21 lead but 
with four minutes left Cullen scor- 
ed on a long shot, and the Middle- 
bury coach sputtered. "I wish that 
little red-haired guy would choke 
right up to here". No sooner had 
beautifully for his nineteenth 
point of the night and a 32-31 
Williams lead. Seconds remaining, 
Moro passed to Wilson who fired 
the ball back and Moro had two 
more, for a 34-31 half-time lead.

THE WILLIAMS RECORD, SATURDAY, MARCH 5, 1955 



Mrs. D. Gifford To Present Course 
Dealing With Basic Art Rudiments 



Non-Credit Study Offers 
Introduction To Painting 
'In Terms Of Doing' 



Saturday, Mar. 5 - A non-credit 
course dealing with ttie basic pro- 
blems connected with the lan- 
guage of painting, conducted en- 
tirely in terms of "doing" rather 
than "talking ', is now being of- 
fered Wednesday afternoons at 
the Lawrence Art Museum by Mrs. 
Donald Gifford, wife of the Eng- 
lish Instructor. 

Open to everyone, tlie studio- 
type course is designed to afford 
an introduction to the basic ru- 
diments of painting, with little 
emphasis placed on theory. "The 
main purpose is to investigate 
througn actual experimentations 
the language of color, line and art 
in fundamental terms, to develop 
familiarity with what color can 
do and to offer an opportunity for 
everyone to leam how to paint," 
Mrs. Gifford stated. 

Bennington Graduate 

The course will run from two to 
four each Wednesday with the last 
half hour set aside for Mrs. Gif- 
ford to criticize any outside work 
of local painters. This entire pro- 
gram is the result of an idea nur- 
tured jointly by Profs. Lane Falson 
of the Art department and Mrs. 
Gifford. 

A graduate of Bennington where 
she majored in Art, Mrs. Gifford 
went to New York and later to 
Mexico to continue her studies. 
Among the many painters she has 
worked with, is Paul Burlin, now 
artist-in-residence at Union Col- 
lege. 

Many exhibitions 

Her gallery in New York City 
is the John Heller Gallery on E. 
57th St., where she has had several 
group exhibits in the past and 
where she will have an exhibit 
either this fall or next spring. 
She has had other displays in the 
past at the Roko Gallery in New 
York, the Mortimer Gallery in 
Leavitt, New York; the Lawrence 
Museum here, at Stockbridge, 
Mass., and at Bennington College. 
She is also currently planning a 
one-artist exhibit at the Behn- 
Moore Gallery in Cambridge, 
Mass., either later this spring or 
early this summer. 

Both the Art Department and 
Mrs. Gifford heavily stressed the 
fact that a course of this kind is 
seldom offered at Williams, and 
strongly encouraged as many stu- 
dents as possible to avail them- 
selves of this opportunity to ex- 
tend their capabilities in art. 

All those interested are urged to 
arrive at the Museum promptly at 
2 p.m. each Wednesday.

their houses in order that in Mon- 
day's joint meeting they can be 
discussed without having to wait 
another week. 

The report, in six sections, gen- 
erally favors the present time 
of rushing, but recommends that 
clianges be made to make fresh- 
man year more profitable. Such 
changes would include "a more 
conscious effort to provide en- 
tertainment for the freshmen; 
such as . . .the Frosh-Soph Smash". 
Also recommended is a "greater 
stress put on intramural sports" 
and a slight reduction in quotas 
to eliminate the concentration of 
rushees in a few houses.

Squires, tied with 10.4 averages. 
Ogden Nutting finished eighth 
with a 10.2 rating. 

In spite of the fact that the 
Seniors led the college in number 
of students on the Dean's List, the 
class is no better than average in 
comparison with the records of 
past graduating classes. James 
Ford led with an 11.0 closely fol- 
lowed by Mac Nelson with a 10.8. 
Rick Smith and Lee Snyder trail- 
ed with 10.75 averages. Carl Ro- 
sen rounds out the high five with 
his 10.67 rating.

Moio and driving in for the score. 
Wilson scored on a tap and Jen- 
sen on a pop to give the Sliawmen 
a nine point lead. Carelessness 
then set in, and with the aid of 
bad passes, tlie Blue and White 
fought their way back to a 44-40 
score. The Purple foul shooting, 
whicli had accounted for the first 
hull lead began to take its toll, 
as Uennis, and Sykes, with four 
louis, haa to play a more re- 
served type of ball. 

With ten minutes left Wilson 
passed to Moro for two and a 13 
point Eph lead. Hurrying their 
allots in Older to close the lead, 
the opponents began to miss con- 
stantly, and with Han s tliird and 
fourth foul tne game was on ice. 
With Hart rebounding effectively, 
the gap was closed to 11 points at 
one time, but the visitors were no 
longer in the contest. Cullen, Buss 
and Wilson scored again. With two 
minutes left, the first team was 
replaced, enjoying a comfortable 
65-51 lead. Jim Symous was able 
to score on a jump shot, and Andy 
Santos counted for a point on a 
foul to make the final score of the 
game 72-55.

game, there will be a dance in the 
Student Union Freshman Lounge, 
which will last until midnight. It 
has finally been decided that the 
Purple Knights will furnish the 
music, as they did for the last 
Frosh-Soph affair. It has also been 
rumored that fraternity parties 
will add some excitement for the 
uppei classmen. 

Extend Frosh Hours 

Dean of Freshmen, Roy Lamson, 
has made several concessions con- 
cerning the ground rules for the 
Slosh. Freshmen and sophomores 
are allowed to drive during the 
weekend, in order to pick up and 
deliver their dates at the various 
near-by women's colleges. Rather 
than issue a blanket permission, 
he specified that potential drivers 
have to check with liim first. 

The hours also have been 
changed so that girls may be in 
the dormitories from noon until 
6:30 p.m. on Saturday, and again 
for two short hours from midnight 
until 2 a.m.

Faculty Athletic Committee Alters 
Membership, Clarifies Operations 



Group To Aid President 
On Matters Of Policy 
Concerning Athletics 



Wednesday, Mar. 9 - The Faculty 
Committee on Athletics, which re- 
cently approved the acceptance of 
an invitation to the NCAA basket- 
ball tournament, has during the 
past year underRone a basic change 
In membership and has clarified 
Its aims, .scope, and operations. 

Formerly the Committee was 
composed of a majority of mem- 
bers of the athletic department 
and the administration. However, 
under the chairmanship of Pro- 
fessor Vincent M. Barnett, the 
membership of this committee has 
been changed to Include among Its 
five members three members of 
the teaching faculty and the Di- 
rector of Health and the Director 
of Athletics. The faculty members 
are ordinarily drawn from each 
of the three broad divisions into 
which the curriculum is divided. 
The present committee consists of 
Prank E. Thorns. Dr. Thomas V. 
Urmy. and Professors Barnett, 
James Curry, and Irwin Shalnman. 
Committee Advises President 

The Faculty Committee on Ath- 
letics together with the Athletic 
Council gives advice to President 
Baxter on matters concerning ath- 
letic policy. The Athletic Council, 
however, is composed of alumni, 
students, and faculty and consults 
with the President on coaching 
DPrsonnpl The Faculty Committee 
has no relationship with the Coun- 
cil and does not share its functions 
with regard to coaches. 

Serving as "a means of regular 
and systematic cooperation and 
consultation between the Office of 
Athletics and the teaching facul- 
ty", the Committee meets fre- 
quently but not regularly and re- 
views athletic scheduling policy to 
hold away games to a minimum, 
to discourage excessively heavy 
schedules, to prevent successive 
classroom cuts in the same course- 
hour cycle, and to .set hours for 
practices and games so as not to 
Interfere with afternoon classes. 

Sudden Athletic Problems 

The Committee must deal with 
sudden athletic problems as they 
come up and decide what course 
of action should be taken in each 
case for the best interests of the 
school. A recent example of the 
Committee's ruling on sudden pro- 
blems Include approval of the ski 
team's participation in the Nor- 
wich Winter Carnival and its 
unanimous decision to allow the 
basketball team to accept the 
NCAA bid. This grant of approval.

Williams Physics Prof. 
Receives Lectureship 
For Univ. of Ceylon 

Wednesday. Mar. 9 - Professor 
David A, Park of the Williams 
faculty will leave at the end of 
the current term to lecture at the 
University of Ceylon in Colombo, 
Ceylon, under the terms of a Ful- 
bright Lectureship which he was 
recently awarded. Mrs. Park and 
his children Katy. Rachel and 
Paul will accompany him on the 
trip. Mr. Park has been granted a 
one-year leave of absence by the 
administration to enable him to 
accept the lectureship. 

Professor Park will lecture on 
theoretical physics at the Univer- 
sity for ten months beginning next 
July. The family hopes to return 
through Europe at the conclusion 
of the period. 

B.A. from Harvard 

Mr. Park received his B.A. from 
Harvard University in 1941. and 
in the fall of 1941 came to Wil- 
liams as a lecturer. In 1944 Mr. 
Park terminated his teaching here 
to assume his duties in the Opera- 
tions Analysis Section of the 8th 
Air Force Headquarters. In 1945 he 
returned to the Pentagon to com- 
plete some other work. 

Mr. Park received his Ph. D. at 
the University of Michigan in 1950. 
Before returning to Williams in 
1951 he spent some tlcpe at the 
Institute of Advanced Studies In 
Princeton. N. J. He teaches Phy- 
sics 1-2 for non-specialists; phy- 
sics 7-8. mechanics for juniors; 
and all graduate physics courses. 

Mr. Park explained that the Ful- 
bright grant was established in 
Ceylon as in other countries to 
make use of local currency, in this 
case the rupee, owed to the United 
States but non-convertible and 
therefore of little use otherwise to 
Americans. 



Doctors Friedman, Talbot Provide 
Psychiatric Care In Weekly Calls 



Without a doubt, one of the 
most important members of the 
Williams community is known to 
merely a handful of students. That 
key. but nonetheless unheralded 
person, is Dr. Cyrus Friedman, con- 
sultant in psychiatry to Williams 
College. Together with Dr. Eugene 
Talbot, he attempts to help those 
Williams students who are In need 
of psychiatric care or just plain 
helpful advice. 

Dr. Friedman visits Williams for 
one day a week, usually Tuesday, 
from his office in the Austen Rlggs 
Center in Stockbrldge, Massachu- 
setts. On these occasional visits. 
the Doctor meets students who 
have made appointments to sec 
him about their own personal pro- 
blems. It is indeed rare that a stu- 
dent is advised to see him by one 
of the Administration, as more 
than 90'( of his visitors come of 
their own volition. 

Cornell Degrrees 

The tall, young Doctor is a soft 
spoken and mild person whom one 
would very rarely associate with 
the field of psychiatry if one met 
him on a purely casual basis. He 
was born in New 'ifork City at an 
unspecified date, and took his A.B. 
and M.D. from Cornell University. 
His Internship was served at Si- 
nai Hospital in Baltimore, Mary- 
land.

Dr. Stenson Gives Fourth Faculty Talk; 
Discusses Necessity of Faith, Knowledge; 
Cites 'The Problem of Believing in God' 

Wcdni'sciay, March 9 - Last Thursday atternoon in the bioloj^v 
auditorium. Dr. Sten H. .Stenson, i^hilosophv professor, reached the 
conchision that the problems of belief in God can he decided only 
by eaeli person indi\khially. The fourth in a series ot weekly faciil- 
tv presiMitatioiis, the lectiue wa.s a chscouise on "The Prol)lem of 
Behevini; in Clod". 

hi his discussion, Dr. Stenson considered the basic obstacles 
of reeoiinitiiHi and disbelief of the existence of a God. As relipion 
cannot l)e handed down from generation to generation, one must 
face such questions, as how one can have a rational belief in God 
if God is to be both good and all-jiowerful concurrently. "The 
Oproblem ot evil." explained Sten- 
son. "has long been a question of 
debate, as well as the attempt to 
provide a reasonable defense of a 
system of explanation." Common 
sense can not be given up by saying 
present evils are somewhat good. 
Stenson also warned of the pitfalls 
of the right of choice and the pro- 
per use of freedom. He emphasized 
that the latter requires a desired 
and constant ability to do right. 
Seven Religious Beliefs 
By the use of a visual "training 
aid". Dr. Stenson listed the seven 
possible religious beliefs, ranging 
from the omnipotent devil theory 
to agnosticism. Other beliefs in- 
cluded those of a limited devil, a 
limited devil and a limited god, a 
limited god, an omnipotent god, 
and naturalism, which consists of 
no demon or god control. In aval- 
uatlng each of these creeds. Sten- 
son analyzed the works of the 
world's outstanding philosophers 
and writers, "Will James", related 
Stenson, "believed in a limited god

Friday, Mar. 4 - "Judaism was 
the first religion to express Love of 
God and Love of Man." This state- 
ment was voiced by Rabbi Harold 
Salzmann of Pittsfleld when he 
conducted the regular Sabbath Eve 
Jewish Services today In Jesup 
Hall. The sermon was called. "The 
Basic Tenets of Judaism". 

Rabbi Salzmann declared that 
the central beliefs of Judaism are 
best depicted by the historic group 
known as the Jewish people and 
by their religious views, literature, 
and moral fiber. These beliefs are 
clearly exemplified by the Torah 
which is the base of the entire re- 
ligion. 

Basic Beliefs 

He then went on to list some of 
the basic beliefs behind Judaism, 
which are; li Judaism has no 
creed: each individual follows his 
own convictions. 2> Judaism today 
is the result of accumulation 
through the years and not a doc- 
trinal beginning. 3) Freedom of 
thought is cherished. 4) Everyone 
has a duty both to himself and 
to God: a good life is rated over 
all else. 5> God is one and not 
many. 6i There is no need for a 
mediator between man and God, 
anyone can conduct a religious 
service. 

In closing. Rabbi Salzmann 
pointed out that Judaism believes 
that there is no Satan, but that 
evil still must be fought. "Right is 
the only key which will open the 
gate of Heaven," (and men need 
only follow the ethical and moral 
teachings of religion to attain sal- 
vation). 

Rabbi Salzmann was the third 
speaker of the spring series spon- 
sored by the Williams College Jew- 
ish A.ssoclation. There are at least 
three more speakers scheduled for 
appearances later this spring, in- 
cluding a tentative arrangement 
with Congressman Emanuel Cellar 
of Brooklyn. 



By Stu Auerbach 

New York. Mar. 8 - An underdog 
Williams team treated the Madison 
St|uare Garden basketball fans to 
a surprising exhibition of skill 
and fighting spirit before they 
bowed to Canisius 73-60 in the 
first round ot the NCAA cham- 
pionships tonight. The Ephmen 
were leading right up until the 
last five minutes, but after losing 
the lead, they tell apart, throwing 
the ball away six times in the clos- 
ing minutes ot the game. 

Moro Spectacular 

Before fouling out in the last 
minute of play. Eph center Tony 
Moro showed the stuff he was 
made of as he displayed remark- 
able talent in shooting, rebounding, 
and floor play. Moro ended up as 
the game's individual high scorer 
with 27 points, ten more than any 
Griff player. He also had 17 re- 
bounds, more than twice the total 
of any Canisius player. 

Coming back from a 30-25 half- 
time deficit, the Ephs woke up and 
took a 46-45 lead with less than 
half the period gone. Moro sunk 
two fouls to give Williams the 
lead. Then Ron Wilson — who 
played a three point first half, 
but came to life in the second — 
made two more tree tosses to give 
Williams a three point bulge. The 
Ephs kept the margin from one 
to three points until John McCar- 
thy sank a layup for the Griffs 
to knot the game at 53-53. Canis- 
ius substitute Fran Corcoran, who 
came into the game late but pump- 
ed in two important baskets for 
the Griffins, put Canisius ahead 
with a tip. Moro tied the game at 
55-55 with six minutes left. 

Canisius Surge 

Canisius scored four quick 
points but Williams stayed in the 
ball game until two and a half 
minutes were left. Bob Buss sank 
two fouls to bring the Ephs within 
striking distance. 59-57. and tem- 
porarily bi-eak up a dribbling 
freeze by John McCarthy. 

But the Canisius freeze contin- 
ued and forced the pressured Ephs 
to foul. Foul they did. Tlie Griffs' 
offense began to roll as they scor- 
ed fourteen points to Williams 
three in the final two and a half 
minutes. 

Ephs Lead in Rebounding 

The game proved that rebound- 
ing isn't all in basketball as Wil- 
liams held a great superiority in 
that department. They brought 
down 52 rebounds to 38 for Can-

A Great Day 

Seldom ill recent years at Williams has one day pro\ecl as sue- 
cesst'id tor college athletic teams as last Saturday did. Facing arch- 
rival Amherst in six events, the Ephs emerged victorions five times 
before crowds of students, dates, faculty and towiiS|)e(>ple. The 
winter term here is generally chcaded by both teachers and nnder- 
grachiates foi' it l)rings dismal weather and very few big weekends 
and results in a general fall in the spirit of the college. Such has not 
been the case this year, however, as the athletic teams, and especial- 
ly the varsity basketball team, have jirovided a stininlons to lift the 
college out of its winter doldrinns. 

Few teams at Williams have ever won such complete support 
from the college as have the varsity cagers. Dartmouth and Rhode 
Island were the tests to see if we leally belonged in the big time, 
but as always, Amherst was the most ini|5ortant game. Turning out 
in such great lunnbers that se\t^ral himdred fans could not be cram- 
med in the small Lasell gym, the Eph sni^jjorters saw the cagers 
rally to win against a fired-iip Amherst five. 

With the best chance of victory that it will ha\e for several 
years, the Amherst swimmers, fa\'ored by many, were crushed again 
by the Kph \arsitv as almost every member of the team came up 
with his best performance of the season. The freshman swimmers 
also won o\er their Jeff rivals. Both hockey teams won handily, but 
the varsity's victory was especially pleasing since the Eph sextet 
had bowed in a startling upset in their first meeting. Though losing, 
the freshman basketball team jjlayed its best game of the season 
and e\'en in defeat appeared to many to be the better team. 

While not of jirimary importance at Williams since scholastics 
do and should receive greatt^r emphasis, athletics, nevertheless, 
have a great value not only for the students playing the s]3ort but 
for the entire college. Uniting the Williams community, this sea- 
son's athletic scpiads, esj^ecially the basketball team, have (jrovided 
the sjjark and enthusiasin that is seldom found at college at this 
time. For students and faculty, alumni and friends, the five victories 
over Amherst on Saturday made it tridy a great day.

moralistic tale about speedsters on motorcycles, the loquacious 
Brando is at his best. The film, which is centered about "hoods ", 
beer brawls, "cycles ', and the long arm of justice, is guaranteed to 
boom the psychiatrist trade. 

Maggie Macnamara and Bill Holden combine to make "THE 
MOON IS BLUE" one of the year's finest. Maggie Macnamara, the 
be.st discovery since Audrey Hepburn, brings a new freshness to 
Hollywood. lier part of a naive secretary is most effectively played. 
Franchot Tone turns in an hilarious performance as an expert on the 
universally popular art of seducing. Verdict: witty, light, and more 
entertaining than an evening with the books.

AS I SAW IT 

by Hill {hiillt'H 



To tlie Editor of the RECORD: 

1 am in receipt of lhi> Umu letter soliciting my sub.scription to 
the RECORD hir the balance of the college yein. It may mterest 
you to know why I am not tearing off the hirni at the bottom ol the 
page and sending it on to yon with the two dollars. 

Thirteen words in the second paragraph of this appeal so ap- 
pall me as to make the thought of reatling more of the same in lut- 
ure issues of the RE(;()RD too dreadful to eoiitemplate. I know on- 
ly too well what Libendism anil Reh)rin (with a ea|)ital H) have 
already done to my beloved ahna mater. Out 1 had not supposeil 
diat namby pamhy Do CJootlers h:id reduced the entire student 
body to kinship with characterless jellyfish! 

How else is one to account for your assumption that an older 
generation of Williams men, to whom yon address this appeal, will 
be intrigued by the fact that we "can even watch the progress ol 
the newly formed Williams Teinijerance Union":' Is it possible you 
never beard of the Noble Experiment, that you tlon't know that the 
18di Amendment was the most \icious piece of legislation ever 
enacted by our Congres.s? As for temperance unions - whether 
W. C. T. U. or this newly h)riiieil W. T. U. - tloii't yon reah/e that 
intemperance is a sine qua mm of nieinbeiship? The only ilitlereuee 
between Carrie Nation and the present crop ol teetotalers is that 
she had guts enough to ex])ress her fanatical iiitoli'ranee with a 
hatchetl 

While I am not gi\eii to emulating the ostrich, blind-folding 
my eyes to unpleasant facts, in this instance it is sufliciently sad- 
dening to know that such an organization has been lonned on the 
campus — without having exultant details of its growth brought to 
my attention. How, ineitientally, do these liigots .s(|uare their intol- 
erance with the Savior's turning water into wine? Surely He would 
be denied inenibership! 

Presumably a slogan of this W. T. U. — iinplietl or explicit — 
is Down with the Demon Rum. They don't know (or If they ilo they 
keep it to themsehcs) diat water - plain water - is a lethal agent. 
Every year in this country deaths from drowning tar exceed latali- 
ties directly attributable to alcoholism. 'I'o be consistent, let Wil- 
liams undergraduates go the whole hog and hirm an organization 
to prohibit bathing! 

Lest you conclude tliat 1 am also intemperate, 1 will oHer only 
one further aniinadveisioii. Suggest to one of these militant teetot- 
alers that he go to his physician - or, perhaps, e\en his hiolog)' 
professor — and ask if tiiere is present in his carcass so much as a 
trace of alcohol. He will doubtless be shocked and pained to learn 
that he is walking around with much more than a trace ot the 
dreadful poison in his system! .-K rudiinenlary knowledge ol the ef- 
fect of the digestive juices on foodstuffs in the stomach sulfiees to 
accpiaint you with the fact that from an ice cream soda or a piece 
of apple pie — from a helping of potatoes or onions — there is ex- 
tracted ])ure alcohol which passes promptlv into the blood stream! 
So — until he can hit on a way to keep alive without eating — your 
teetotaler is, in fact, a boozer! 

.\tauy rate, 1 hope 1 have made clear iiiv reason lor not taking 
advantagt: of your offer. 

■■' ■ Sincerely yours, ' > •. .•

!lie Muirnien this afl<'rnoon. 'I'akiiin '"n ''arly lead, the lOplis vir- 

iiallv elinched the meet when I'ete Lewis set a new record and 

)iive Cunningham .spurted to take^, 

I second In the 200 yard baclc- 

troke. 



The Purple took a quick five 
olnt lead when Dave Cunnlng- 
lam, Dick BeamLsh and John Tay- 
lur easily copped the 200 yard Med- 
.y Relay. Pete Dletz and Bill Jenks 
.'.Idened the Wllllam.s margin to 
13-1 by placing first and second 
espectlvely in the 220 freestyle. 
Neither man encountered trouble 
.ifter the 100 yard mark, and Dletz 
linlshed with the good time of 
.';12.7. 

Latham takes second 

Klrt Gardner added three points 
'0 the Eph score with a second be- 
tiind the Sabrina's star swimmer. 
Hob Keller, who took the 50 yard 
freestyle in 23.2. In an exciting in- 
dividual medley, Eph Captain Gene 
Ijitham overtook Jim HoUister to 
tiike second behind Amher.st's 
liuddy Pray who beat Latham by a 
body length In 1;37.4. 

Buster Grossman kept his fine 
record of only one defeat intact 
l)y taking the diving with a 97.78 
.score. Grassman's diving, which at 
limes was beautiful, enabled him 
to easily defeat his close.sl rival, 
Uave Van Hoesan, and increased 
the Eph lead to 25-16. In the 100 
yard freestyle, the Puiple squad 
once more succumbed to the fine 
swimming of Keiter, who won in 
Uie fine time of 52.6. The Amherst 
star was ahead of Jenks and Gard- 
ner from the start, but by placing 
second and third, the Muirmen 
lost only one point on the race, 
and went into the dccLsive back- 
stroke with an eight point lead. 

Lewis and Cunningham broke 
iven with the Sabrina favorite, 
fray, but at the end of^flfty, Lewis 
led Pray by half a body length, 
with Cunningham clo.se behind. 
At the last turn Lewis had his op- 
ponent by a body length, and the 
crowd was on its feet. Suddenly, 
Cunningham put on an amazing 
sprint, and passed the Amherst 
star to take second behind the 
record-breaking Lewis. Lewis' time 
was 2:20.7, breaking the old pool 
record set by Dave Byerly in 1952, 
by over four seconds. 

Dick Beamish took a .second in 
the breaststroke. and when Dletz 
and Tony Brockleman took first 
and third respectively In the 440 
freestyle the Championship was 
Williams'. The relay. Just a matter 
of custom, was won by the Sa- 
brinas, but the Ephs had already

New York Event 



Eph Anchor Man Behr 
Leads Mates To Win 



Saturday, Mar. 5 - The Wil- 
liams winter track team turned in 
a brilliant performance tonight as 
it copped first place in the New 
England mile relay event at the 
Knights of Columbus meet. Com- 
peting before 15.000 fans at Madi- 
.son Square Garden, the Plansky- 
men finished ahead of Boston 
College, Tufts, and Holy Cross in 
that order. 

The relay team is composed of 
Captain Bob Behr. Tim Hanan. 
George Hagcrman. and Bob Rayns- 
ford. Tonight. Coach Tony Plan.sky 
had Hanan running the first quar- 
ter. Raynsford and Haggerman fol- 
lowed him. and Behr was anchor 
man. 

Just before the running of the 
relay, the main drawing card of 
the meet, Wes Santee. turned in 
a rather disappointing perform- 
ance in winning the mile, and so 
the crowd viewed the relay with 
unusual interest. Although the 
winning time of 3:28 is not es- 
pecially good, the Williams vic- 
tory was the most dramatic of 
the evening. 

Lead-off man Hanan Jumped to 
a quick lead, but in the jamming 
at one of the turns, he was trip- 
ped by the Boston College man 
and barely regained his balance. 
When he passed the baton on to 
Bob Raynsford. he still held first 
by a few feet. Raynsford was also 
badly bumped, and .so he finished 
his iiuarter in last place. Hagger- 
man managed to pass only one 
man, and so Behr began his quar- 
ter in third place. Behr paced 
himself beautifully, and with a 
final burst swept past his oppo- 
nents in the last half lap.

Saturday, Mar, 5 - Coach Ed 
Bullock's varsity wrestlers placed 
third behind Springfield and Wes- 
leyan in the New England cham- 
pionship meet held at Tufts in 
Medford, Ma.ssachusetts, today. 
Two Ephs were crowned New Eng- 
land champs, however, and Cap- 
tain Bob Little won the Coach's 
Trophy awarded to the best Indi- 
vidual wrestler of the eight-team 
meet. 

Little won the 157 pound cham- 
pionship, while Bob Koster. at 147, 
was the other Eph who kept his 
season's record clean. Springfield 
College completely dominated the 
meet for the fifth straight year 
with four individual winners and 
67 points; William.s, with no 130 
pound cla.ss entrant due to the 
illness of both Ed Pitts and Ted 
McKee. was forced to settle for 
39 points, seven behind Wesleyan. 
Little Tops Davies 

Little trounced Wesleyan's Kent 
Davies, last year's New England 
frosh champ, in the 157 pound 
finals by a clear-cut 14-3 margin; 
in a dual meet earlier this year, 
Davies had forced Little to settle 
for a draw. Bob Koster barely 
eeked out a 2-0 decision over John 
Mulligan of Springfield in one of 
the best contests of the entire 
meet. Mulligan had defeated Kos- 
ter la.sl year in the same meet. 

In the 123 class. Hank Lyden 
got to the second round and turned 
in his best performance of the 
year against Amherst captain 
Deane Tank, only to lose by a close 
decision. George Madsen took a 
third m the 137 class, by beating 
Bob Dangle of MIT in the con- 
solation match. Al Reed captured 
a second place in the 177 division, 
losing to Wesleyan's Bill Mason in 
the finals, 5-3. Reed decisioned 
Don Roland of Coast Guard in the 
first round, and went on to reverse 
an 8-5 defeat suffered last weekend 
at the liands of Fred Felton of 
Amherst by topping him 4-3. Bill 
Fall closed out the meet with a 
third in the heavyweight division, 
as he decisioned Bob Keene of 
Tufts in a consolation final.

Satiudav, March .5 ■ The Williams \arsitv liockev team finished 
its season in a Maze ol jjlorv hy deleatint; hij^hlv touted .\orwicli

these teams had previously defeated the Purple, Norwich h\ a

in today's ijame with the Lord |effs, the Ephs scored twice 
in the tilth niiiinle ol play and led the rest of the way. CJeori^e 

Welles opened the scoring when he^ '. 

took a pa.ss from Mac Fiske and 



scored. Thirty seconds later. Bob 
Leinbach scored on a tliree-on- 
two break. 

Gallun Performs Hat Trick 

Later in the period, Jeff Sam 
Davenport scoied on an open net 
to make the score 2-1. In the se- 
cond period. Dick Gallun scored 
two of his three goals. At 5:48 
Bob Bethune fed him from behind 
the net and Gallun blasted it 
home. Four minutes later, Gallun 
took a pass from John Holman, 
skirted a detenseman, and scored. 
The Eph sophomore scored his 
final goal in a very rough third 
period, which was marked by se- 
ven penalties. 

Top strong Norwich 

Thursday, the Purple pulled a 
real upset by defeating Norwich on 
home ice; Norwich had beaten 
Middlebury two days before. The 
Gallun, Bethune, Foehl line was 
the big point-getter in this game 
as Gallun scored twice while his 
line-mates tallied one goal apiece. 

Ick Foehl scored at 3; 13 of the 
first period after a scramble in 
fiont of the net. Bethune made it 
2-0 by scoring on a rebound shot. 
Fern Cloutier scored the first of 
his four goals after 14 seconds in 
the second period. Six minutes 
later Gallun tallied, but Cloutier 
came right back to narrow the 
Williams margin to one goal. Bob 
Leinbach made it 4-2 when Nor- 
wich was a man short. 

After two minutes of the third 
period, Welles skated in from the 
blue line and fired the puck home 
for a tally. Cloutier made the score 
5-3 at 4:52. Bethune set up Gallun 
who tallied to give the Ephs a 
6-3 lead before Cloutier scored 
again to narrow the margin to 6-4. 

With a minute and a half left 
to play. Norwich pulled its goalie 
and put six forwards on the ice, 
but this strategy back-fired when 
Doug Poole fired the puck into the 
open net to make the final score 
7-4.

Saturday, Mar. 5 - Playing Am- 
herst in three sports today, the 
Eph freshmen closed out a suc- 
cessful season by taking Little 
Three titles in swimming and 
hockey and winding up w'ith a 9-5 
record for the season in basketball. 
The Eph frosh dropped a cage 
thriller to the Sabrinas 60-56. but 
decisively whipped the Lord Jeffs 
in hockey. 8-1. and in swimming, 
43-32. 

In defeating tlie Amherst puck- 
sters. Coach Nels Corey's yearlings 
notched an undefeated season. 
This was the second year in a row 
that the freshman hockey team 
has gone undefeated. In compiling 
nine victories witliout a setback, 
the Ephs netted 65 goals against 
eight tallies for the opposition. 
The scoring punch for the Wil- 
liams team was provided by the 
til St line of Captain Dave Cook, 
Bob Keltic and Rick Lombard. On 
the defense. Rick Driscoll and Tom 
Penney helped goalie Denny Doyle 
hold the Williams opponents in 
check throughout the campaign. 
The hockey team gained victories 
over Mount Hermon, Vermont 
Academy. Choate. Lenox, Tatt, 
Hotchkiss, Yale, Deerfield. and 
Amherst. 

Swimmers Win 

Coach Bob Muir's yearlings also 
produced a decisive win over Am- 
herst to take the coveted Little 
Three freshman swimming title. 
The tanksters co-captained by Bob 
Severence and Fred Corns, finished 
the season with a 3-2 record. The 
swimmers' three victories were over 
Albany Academy. Wesleyan and 
Amherst. The two losses on the 
Eph record came at the hands of 
two prep schools. Deerfield and 
Hotchkiss. Several of the yearling 
swimmers are fine varsity pros- 
pects. 

The only loss of the weekend in- 
curred by either freshman or var- 
sity teams was inflicted upon the 
freshman ba.sketball squad when it 
bowed to Amherst in a closely 
contested and hard-fought game. 
The outcome of the game was not 
apparent until the closing mo- 
ments. The Ephs, sparked by 
sharpshooting Marv Weinstein led 
at halftlme, 29-23. The squad was 
unable to keep up the pace in the 
second half, however, and although 
Weinstein's 24 points kept the Ephs 
in the game, they were not quite 
able to defeat the sharpshooting 
Sabrina quintet. The Eph cagers 
wound up with a 9-5 lecoid. with 
lo.sses to Middlebury, Dartmouth, 
Union, Wesleyan and Amherst. 



By Stu Auerbach 

Saturday, Mar. 5 - In one of the 
most exciting games ever to grace 
the floor of the Lasell Gym, the 
Williams College ba.sketball team 
came from behind after playing 
a miserable fnst half to regain 
their prestige in New England and 
avenge their 68-60 loss to Amherst 
two weeks ago Dy defeating the 
Lord Jeffs 53-48 tonight. 

Behind seven points at the half, 
the Ephs tightened up their de- 
fense and out-fought the Sabrinas 
after the intermission to bring an 
undisputed Little Three crown to 
Williams tor the first time since 
1950. It was also the first time 
since 1953 that Williams has beat- 
en Amherst in ba.sketball. 

Seniors Spark Rally 

Tony Moro, Ron WiLson, and 
Herb Smith, all seniors playing 
their last game on the Ephs' home 
court, played their hearts out to 
spark Williams' second half drive. 
It was Moro wlio, with seven and 
a half minutes gone in the half, 
tied the game at 33-33. Amlierst 
went ahead again, taking a 39-33 
lead on two hooks and a pair of 
free throws by Doug Hawkins. 
Then Williams rallied. Smith made 
two sets and Wilson a pair of lay- 
ups to throw the game into a 41-41 
tie, as the overflow crowd of 1200 
went wild. 

With five minutes left, Wilson 
made two free throws to put Wil- 
liams ahead for the first time 
since the opening moments of the 
game. 47-45. Two minutes later he 
scored on a rebound to put the 
Ephs four points ahead. 49-45. 
With 1:35 to go. Amherst's Bud Al- 
len .scored on a layup, quickly fol- 
lowed by Wally Jensen's ten foot 
.lump shot tor Williams. With 44 
seconds left Jensen fouled Jerry 
Bensen who made one of two char- 
ity tosses. Williams took the ball 
out and started a freeze, but with 
20 seconds left Smith missed a 
shot and Amherst recovered the 
ball. Pete Scott missed a layup 
and Jensen cleared the boards. 
The Ephs ran the clock out on the 
dribbling of Bill CuUen. who was 
fouled just at the buzzer. It took 
the officials five minutes to clear 
the foul lane of the cheering fans 
so that Cullen could make his 
shots. 

Fine Williams Defense 

In the second half Williams 
outdefensed Amherst, rated the 
top defensive team among the na- 
tion's small colleges. The Ephs 
clamped on a tight zone that con-

THE WILLIAMS RECORD, WEDNESDAY, MAHCll 9, 1955 



Doctors . . . 

makes his home in Stockbrldge 
also. Doctor Friedman admits that 
he is still single. 

Of the Williams College coin- 
miinity. the Docloi- fiankly says. 
"I like what I've seen". He says 
that eveiyone whom he has come 
into contact with has been friend- 
ly and congenial. Dr. Friedman 
says that the College itself is very 
attractive and the very atmosphere 
about it seems friendly and close. 
"To stun it lip," he said. "I wouldn't 
be at all advei'se to sending any 
.son of mine to Williams". 

Low Williams Percentagre 

In most colleges about the 
country, about 10'. of the student 
body present themselves for psy- 
chiatric care during the course of 
a school year, but at Williams, 
that figui'e is only 5V. Whether 
that is due to emotionally better 
adjusted students at Williams, or 
because of a stigma attached to 
visiting a psychiatrist, the Doctor 
said he didn't know, but he be- 
lieved the former a more plausible 
reason. 

Doctor Friedman remarked that 
the college age gi'oup is a good 
group to work with for treatment, 
and students in this age seem to 
respond better than other young 
people. Much younger or slightly 
older people find it more difficult 
to cooperate witli the psychiatrist 
than people of 18 to 25. 

Doctor's Comments 

The Doctor made these remarks 
when .speaking of the major diffi- 
culties of a student: "The major 
trouble of college students is some 
disturbance in psycho-social de- 
finition. He is concerned over 
whom he is. and how to tie to- 
gether contradictory components 
of himself. He wonders where he 
is going, about his college cai'eer. 
and about his relations with the 
opposite sex." 

Finally, the busy Dr. Friedman 
stressed. "The age at which one 
goes to college is the time when 
one is faced with new problems a- 
lising out of new experiences such 
as the need for energetic compe- 
tition, and the need to make plans 
for the future. These are the pro- 
blems of going into adulthood and 
it is quite normal to have them. 
This is a fact which we must re- 
member. " 




Faculty , . . 

however, was not to be considered 
as a precedent to be followed for 
all similar cases in the future. Bar- 
nett said that the Committee 
"would in the future view every 
case on its own merits". 

There were of course many ar- 
guments both pi-o and con involved 
in this decision, which wei'e weigh- 
ed through thorough and careful 
discussion. The main argument in 
favor of accepting the bid was 
that the members of the team are 
good responsible citizens of school 
life and are good students. Also 
taken into consideration was the 
fact that the last two games of 
the season wei'e at home; thus, 
accepting the bid would not over- 
balance the schedule at the end of 
the season. The basketball sche- 
dule this year was not as a whole 
as long as the schedule of many 
other schools including Amheist. 

There were considerations to be 
studied against accepting the 
NCAA invitation. Time would be 
taken away from the studies of 
not only the members of the team 
but also from members of the stu- 
dent body who would follow the 
team to New York to watch the 
game. Aside from this fact, ac- 
cepting tournament invitations 
tends to give added importance to 
athletics. Some teachers feel that 
such tournaments are becoming 
too professional.

and no devil control and thought 
God emerged in us in our most fer- 
vent religious practices. Santa- 
yana said that religion with Its 
higher and practical themes has 
the same relation to life as poetry." 

In concluding, Stenson stated 
that one needs faith with know- 
ledge and that religious literature 
is evidence that persons have had 
experience witli God. In the words 
of T. S. Eliot, "There is no ceasing 
in exploration, as we go back tx) 
the beginning and know the place 
where we have started." 



Library Shows Fine 
Handprinted Volumes 

Chapin Display Presents 
Rowe Printer's Work 



Wednesday. Mar. 9 - An exhibi- 
tion of hand printed books issued 
by the Cummington Press of Rowe. 
Massachusetts is on display in the 
Chapin Library. This collection of 
books — prose, poetry, and drama 
by famous authors — represents 
the finest printing yet produced 
in the United States. 

These handprinted productions 
offer a sharp contrast to the pre- 
vailing kinds of mechanically pro- 
duced books. Harry Duncan of the 
Cummington Press handsets the 
type, while his partner, Paul Wil. 
Hams, does the illustrations by 
means of woodcuts, linoleum cuts, 
and copper engravings and etch- 
ings. Duncan and Williams to- 
gether do the presswork. 

Accent on Clarity 

The printing on display demon- 
strates that the handpress is not 
recherche or sentimental, but is 
capable of dii'ect and simple beau- 
ty. Though up to three different 
colors of type are used on a single 
page, the page retains its balance, 
and the emphasis is laid on clarity 
rather than ornateness. 

The Cummington Press was 
founded in 1940 as part of the 
activities of the Cummington 
School of the Arts and was affili- 
ated with the school until 1952. 
After a long recess the press was 
reestablished at Rowe in Novem- 
ber of 1954. Evidently relations are 
good between the Cummington 
Press and the townspeople, for the 
press undertook to print the town 
report.

time and metliod of tryouts for 
the proposed freshman debates 
with other freshman teams as 
well as prep-schools was discussed.

tiiiually harried the Jeff players' 
shots. It seemed as if Williams 
players were everywhere us tliey 
double-teamed Scott, u .set shot 
arlust. and Hawkins, Amherst's 
leading scoi'er. Bensen was given 
plenty of room to set, but made 
only two of the many shots he 
tried. 

Smith was the sparkplug of the 
dri\e as lie made his longest ap- 
pearance on the court since dis- 
locating his ankle against Rhode 
Island December 10. Forgetting 
all about his weak ankle. Smith 
was all over the court on both of- 
fense and defense as he molded the 
team's play. He came into the 
game late in llie first half for 
Cullen and played until the last 
minute of the game. 

Moru, Wilson Break Loose 

Both Moro and Wilson were held 
tightly in check by Amherst's de- 
fense during the first half ius they 
scoi'ed only two points apiece. But 
in the .second stanza they both 
broke loose. Moro, playing with 
three personals incurred early in 
the game, started flicking in .soft 
jump shots and one banders from 
the side in the second half, as well 
as out-rebounding Hawkins. 

Wilson started finding the range 
on his laps and worked loose to 
drive in for layups. He aided Moro 
with the rebounding and fought 
and dove for loose balls. It was 
the shooting of Jensen that kept 
Williams in the ball game during 
the first half when the Ephs did 
everything wrong. Wilson was 
Williams' high .scorer with 14 while 
Moro and Jen.scn had 12. 

The crowd started gathering foi- 
the game an hour before the gates 
were .scheduled to be opened. By 
the time they were opened, the 
three abreast line stretched out 
from the ticket booth to Main 
Street, down Main Street to the 
corner, and down Spring Street 
to the Square Deal store. The doors 
were clo.sed at 6:25 as the gym i 
filled up in 40 minutes, |

PHICE 10 (JKNIS 



CC Approves Program To Allow 
Frosh In Upperclass Dormitories 



Fraternity Dining in SU 
Also Receives Council 
Approval In 7 - 2 Vote 

Monday, Mur. 7 - In an attempt 
10 promote (■loser freshmim-upper- 
class coiitiicl, till' CoUeiie CouiU'il 
recommeiidi'cl that each fraternity, 
begiiminK next fall, eat at lea.st 
one meal en masse in the Student 
Union and that fie.shmen be al- 
lowed in uppeiclasN doim.s, on a 
trial ba.sl.s. Both iecommendation.s. 
passed 7-2 and unanimou.sly, will 
be submitted to the Social Council 
next Monday in a joint meeting 
foi' final approval. 

Considerable discussion took 
place on the pioposal to have fra- 
lei'hities eat in the Student Union, 
since the members felt that the 
fraternities, as repiescnted in the 
Social Council, would not support 
such a plan becau.se it emphasized 
the differences between the "weak" 
and "strohB" hou.ses. It was there- 
fore proposed that uppeiclas-smen 
eat in the Student Union alpha- 
betically, rather than as houses, 
.so that freshmen would know up- 
perclassmen by peisonalilies ra- 
thei' than as members of a certain 
hou.se. 

Dilemniu Solved 

Peelini!, however, that this pro- 
posal does nol tjive the fieshman 
a real idea of the character of 
each fraternity, llie Council adopt- 
ed the original pioiiosal. They then 
voted to inform the Social Council 
of theii- decision before the houses 
held mectini4s on the .subject in 
Older that the houses miiiht better 
understand these implications. 

A similnr rnnfli''* with the So- 
cial Council was anticipated on the 
Reeves Report .stipulation to allow 
freshmen in upperclass dorms, 
since the Social Council last week 
voiced strong opposition to such 
A plan as leadini; to "dirty rush- 
ing". Again the CC felt that such 
a plan is essential to belter class 
relations and noted that it need 
be only on a trial basLs. 

ForoiRii Students 
Dick Repp '57 opened the meel- 
ms with a recommendation that 
a permanent committee be eslal- 
lished to insure .sound orientation 
of foreign students, especially in 
the first couple of months when 
they are bewildeicd by American 
customs and lanRuane. Repp was 
unanimously named to head such 
a committee. 

Don O'Brien '56, Chairman of 
the Rules, Nominations and Elec- 
tions Cominittee. then submitted 
the slate for the new Student Uni- 
on Committee. The eight-man 
slate, which was unanimously ap- 
proved, will consist of Chairman 
Phil Palmedo '56, Secretary Si

Barkin Addresses 
Lecture Audience 

Unionist Discusses 
Decline in Textiles 



Rounds Plans Set 
For Approaching 
AMT Production 



Saturday, Mar. 12 - Mr. Solomon 
Barkin. Director of Re.seaich for 
the Textile Wurkei-s' Union of the 
CIO addie.ssed a liioup of Wil- 
liams economists on the topic 
"Recession in the Textile Indus- 
try ' Monday evening in Griffin 
Hall. Mr. Barkin, a prominent la- 
bor leader, has been with the Tex- 
tile Workers' Union for the past 
18 years. 

Accordinn to Barkin. the main 
problem facing textiles is that the 
whole industry is in a period of 
decline. The industry needs "new 
invlKoralion. stimulation, research, 
and higher pay". Althouiih the 
high production level has been 
maintained, there has been a .seri- 
ous liquidation of plants and a 
drop in emiJloyment in lecent 
yeai's. 

Old Industry 

The industry, which is the old- 
est in the world, is now dominated 
by speculatuis and financial tax 
experts. Tax gimmicks have dis- 
couraged entrepreneurs from mak- 
ing improvements in capital and 
in working conditions. There have 
been mergers since the war which 
have cau.sed the industiy to be- 
come dominated by large com- 
bines. Forty coi'porations employ 
75'i of the labor. 

In this dilemma workers have no 
bargaining power. The deinand for 
textiles is not a function of price 
becau.se raw material costs are 
fixed by the government. So al- 
though the United States has the 
most advanced textile indu.stry in 
the world, there is still much to 
be desired. 

One of the major problems, as 
seen by Barkin, is a lack of re- 
search. There is no fundamental 
research institution, consequently 
work in the mills has never be- 
come a science and has lemained 
an art. Research, promotion, new 
products, and new uses aie nol to 
be found. 

Since 1947-49 the number of tex- 
tile workers has fallen by 180,000 
to the present level of 980,000. Al- 
though labor has fallen oft, pro- 
duction has lemained at a steady 
rate of about 12 billion yards a 
year. 

Recent I'eports of some textile 
manufacturers have .shown a loss. 
Consequently serious liquidation 
has taken place in the last few 
years. Mills have been sold and 
the textile equipment removed 
from 207 plants which had em- 
ployed 08,000 people. And finally, 
since the war 640 plants, employ- 
ing about 200,000 workers, have 
been liquidated.

Amherst Axes Move 
To Honor 'Williams' 



Wednesday. March 9 - At a 
town meeting in Amhei'st last 
night, a move to officially name 
the town athletic field, Williams 
Field, in honor of retii-ed ath- 
letic coach George Williams, 
was defeated 97-79. Some oppo- 
nents, membeis of the Amherst 
College staff, said they did not 
want anything in Amlierst 
named "Williams", pointing to 
the traditional Amherst rivalry 
with Williams College. 

Tlie field has been known un- 
officially as Williams field since 
the retirement of Williams who 
coached football, baseball and 
basketball at the high school for 
36 yeais. Pioving no exception 
to the rule, observers take note 
that Amheist once again refuses 
to admit the gieatness of 'Wil- 
liams, but has no acceptable 
alternative.

Editorial 

. . . REPLY 



by ]. A. Donovan 



In the liLSt issue of the RECORD (Wednesday, March 9) a 
letter to the Editor from Haydon Talbot '03 was printed, in which 
the writer tried to express a few reasons why he thouj^ht it would 
be "dreadful to contemplate" reading more issues of the RECORD. 
Mr. Talbot singled out the case that an appeal for a subscription 
mentioned the fact that the college now contained an undergradu- 
ate temperance organization. In regards to such activities, Mr. Tal- 
bot chose to call the whole college a group of "namby pamby Do 
Gooders . . . reduced to the kinship of characterless jellyfish". 

As a clincher argument, Mr. Talbot cited the fact that inore 
people each year are killed through drowning than through alco- 
holism, and that therefore the college should rule out all bathing. 
Although exceedingly clever, such a statement demonstrates a gross 
absurdity. It shows that the author not only completely misses the 
whole idea of such a movement, but in so doing, has forgotten all 
that for which his "beloved alma mater" stands. 

First of all, to refute the argmnent that bathing should be abol- 
ished, let me remind Mr. Talbot that this practice is considered 
most hygenic and civilized. Such a practice was even prominent 
in his day in college, when the public baths on Spring Street did a 
thriving business every Saturday evening. There is no case on rec- 
ord of either a fatality or serious accident occurring in the shower 
rooms of Williams College. As a matter of fact, I might go so far as 
to say that bathing was encouraged by the college because of the 
great number of facilities provided to the students for this purpose. 

A second forcing argument offered by Mr. Talbot is the fact 
that our bodies contain a certain amount of alcohol anyway, and 
that no person with such compounds in his body should suggest 
that other human beings should not liberally replenish this vital 
chemical. No doubt Mr. Talbot, with his broad knowledge of biol- 
ogy, also realizes that our bodies also contain several other com- 
pounds, some of them called poisons and causing death if taken in 
too large a dose. If I were to assume Mr. Talbot's position, it cer- 
tiiinly would be absurd for me to suggest that he go without re- 
plenishing these poisons himself. 

However, the fact that such a letter from an alumnus is com- 
pletely lacking in any forceful arguments is not the most painful 
thing. It is regrettable that he so greatly misunderstands the pur- 
poses of such an organization as the W. C. T. U. and of the Williams 
liberal arts education. Such a movement as the W. C. T. U. is far 
more a part of the Williams tradition than is the "big drinking, big 
talking, big man." 

The WCTU is making an attempt to improve the whole college. 
As is the case with any improvement, there are certain people who 
are reluctant to give up a vice. The members of the WCTU advo- 
cate the substitution of wine for hard liquor, and at the same time 
they recommend its more sparing use. The right of individimls to 
form such organizations with the intention of doing good is, in my 
book, no crime. In fact, it is not the sign of weakness but rather the 
sign of strength. The right of individuals to think and act in the best 
interests of the whole commimity has always been encouraged by 
Williams, and with all regard for Mr. Talbot, let us hope and pray 
that it always will be.

College Council Ends First Year 
Of Work Despite Student Apathy 

by Jim Patterson '57 
On May 4, 1954, a profound change took place at Williams. 
Few realized it then, and fewer now realize the results. On that date 
the old college governing body, the Undergraduate Council, was 
formally replaced by the two most important present organs, the 
College Coimcil anil the Social Council. They have now completed 
their first year. 

Weeks of committee work preceded the change. In the fall of 
1953 the UC, then headed by Guy Veriiey '54, set up the so-called 
Miller Committee to effect a change. Its proijosals failed to obtain 
the necessary % college vote to alter the College Constitution. Don 
Clark '54 then formed another committee whose ideas were finally 
accepted last April by vote of 380-182 and are now in effect. 

Clmuf^cs 

Basically the new constitution has as its purpose "to |)romote 
the ideals of Williams College". To do this, the college officers liave 
the power to pass "binding legislation on all matters concerning the 
student body of Williams College, except as specifically liniitetl by 
this constitution". The two chief organs set up are the CC, "the 
student governing body", composed of the class officers and repre- 
sentatives, and the SC which has the power "to formulate policy 
for social imit matters" and is made up of the house presidents. 

The reasons for the change were mandatory. Due to the system 
of deferred rushing and the defection of the Garfield Club, the old 
UC, which resembled the present Social Council, represented only 
about 602 of tlie college. Its jjower and responsibility were there- 
fore limited. It was hoped that the new CC, based on full and di- 
rect representation, would therefore "foster a spirit of unity" and 
"administrative cooperation". After a year its success can now be 
examined. 

Accotnplishments 

There is little doubt that tlie change has wrought some imjirov- 
ements and accomijlishments. The CC took part in a Little "Three 
student council conference from which it emerged with beneficial 
ideas, such as the Wesleyan "Eating Club" plan and Amherst's stu- 
dent jiarticijiation in athletic policy. It helped promote a very suc- 
cessful Career Weekend. It set up a student guide service, recom- 
mended the construction of a slot in the library to take care of late 
books, and promoted the Student Book Exchange. 

Unfinished business includes the work of a Cut Committee to 
help establish a better cut system, an Hour's Committee, and an 
Athletic Committee "to study the problem of student partici|iation 
in the formation of athletic policy' . Also, such permanent CC com- 
mittees as the Honor System and Discipline Committee, the Stud- 
ent Union Committee, the Rules, Nominations and Elections Com- 
mittee, and the se|iarate SAC, have done considerable work in 
their fields. 

Rushing Problems 

But the most trying and time-consimiing problems have con- 
cerned rushing policies. Last vear two somewhat conflicting aims 
were sought — to provide total opportunity and to maintain 15 fra- 
ternities on the Williams campus. As a result of high (juotas, total 
opportunity was nearly aciiieved, hut onlv at the cost of endanger- 
ing the financial condition of a few "weak " houses. 

Concomitant with this pr()l)leui has lieen the question of chan- 
ges in the present system, either through a change in the time of 
rushing, as proposed by the ad hoc Committee heailed bv Garret 
Schenek '55, or through a liberalization of freshman social condi- 
tions, suggested by the Reeves Report of the Joint Councils. 

No Definite Action 
As yet no definite action has been taki^ii to settle either yiroh- 
lem, although the CC and the SC are now discussing some of the

proposals of the Reeves Report. Were this approveil, freshmen 
would be granted better social opportunities in general, tluough 
more liberal hours and by being allowed in upperclass dorms. Dirty 
rushing would also be redefiru-d to permit Ireer conversation. 

Ouotas would also be dropped slightly, anti to offset the resul- 
tant drop in pledged sophomores, the CC; is considering such plans 
as the Wesleyan "Eating Club". Under this i>lan, sophomores who 
do not receive a bid from any house are invited to the houses for 
nu'als in turn, and througii close contact gradually receive bids. At 
any rate a decision on allthes*' problems will soon be made. 

Criticisms 

These are the accomplishments, completed and eonsidi'red, oi 
the CC and SC after ten months in office. Some of the aims, at 
least, seem to have been gained. The student IxKly is l)etter repre- 
sented, the CC now has real power and scope, and is better able 
to work in cooperation with the administration. The general senti- 
ment of the Councils is, however, that a few .serious problems have 
not been solved by the new system of college government. 

The main criticism, effectively voiced by Bill Montgomery, '55, 
outgoing president of tlie College C'onneil, and by Dick Repp, '57, 
a member for two years under ooth systems, is that the C(; is still 
limited. This limitation docs not come jroni the administration or 
the trustees (wito have the final decision only on lari^c issnes, sncli 
as the proposed change in the lime of rushing lehicli would result 
in a financial problem for the collcj^c). It is a limitation imposid 
ht/ the student hodi/ as a whole. 

Student Apathi/ 
Despite ample publicity in the RECORD, Williams studenK 



remain uninformed and a|)atiietic concerning the plans of their imi 
elected rejireseutatives. "I'liey are aroused only by false or e.vai; 
gerated rumors. This apathv is especially notieealjle in election^ 



when few vote and the same officers are reelected year after vcai 
Even the most responsible olficer can realize that he need only dn 
a passable job to remain in olliee, aiul Constitution stipulations td 
have CC-student discussions have not been followed. 

In an attempt to remedy the situation, the CC lias suggest<'ii 
many alternatives, such as a central bulletin board, college assein 
blies, greater Adviser publicity, and class meetings. In the past 
however, all have nu't witii little success. As one nieml)er pluasi 1 
it, "you can beat your head against the wall, and you still can't ilci 
a damned thing about it". 

So this has proven the most aggravating of all problems unili i 
the new system. The CXI is entrusted with as nineh power as aii\ 
student government. As a result, it has aceoniplislied a good deal. 
With active student support and interest, hoicevir. it could tun i 
done more and done it faster. The profound change of last Mat/ 4 
was important, but it has not been able to overcome the .lileni 
barrier of apathi/.

SCIENCE MADE SIMPLE: NO. 2 

Though this column is intended solely as a vehicle for well- 
tempered drollery, the makers of Philip Morris have agreed to 
let me use this space from time to time for a short lesson in 
science. They are the most decent and obliging of men. the 
makers of Philip Morris, as one would guess from sampling 
their product. Only from bounteous hearts could come such a 
pleasurable cigarette— so felicitously blended, so gratifying to 
the taste, so soothing to the psyche. And, as though bringing 
you the most agreeable cigarette on the market were not enough, 
the makers of Philip Morris have enclosed their wares in the 
Snap-Open Pack, an ingeniously contrived wrapping that yields 
up its treasure without loss of time or cuticle. And, finally, 
this paragon of cigarettes, wrapped in the paragon of packages, 
can be had in king-size or regular, as your taste dictates. Who 
can resist such a winning combination? Not I. 

A few weeks ago in this column we had a brief lesson in chem- 
istry. Today we take up another attractive science -medicine. 

Medicine was invented in 1066 by a Greek named Hippocrates. 
He soon attracted around him a group of devoted disciples whom 
he called "doctors". The reason he called them "doctors" was 
that they sat around a dock all day. Some fished, some ju.st 
dozed in the noonday sun. In truth, there was little else for them 
to do, because disease was not invented until 1492. 

After that doctors became very busy, but, it must be reported, 
their knowledge of medicine was lamentably meagre. The.v 
knew only one treatment— a change of climate. For example, .1 
French doctor would send all his patients to Switzerland; a 
Swiss doctor, on the other hand, would send all his patients to 
France. By 1789 the entire population of France was living in 
Switzerland, and vice versa. This later became known as the 
Black Tom Explosion. 

Not until 1924 did medicine, as we know it, come into beinK- 
In that year in the little Bavarian village of Pago-Pago :ui 
elderly physician named Winko Sigafoos discovered the hot 
water bottle. He was, of course, burned as a witch, but his sun 
Lydia, disguised as a linotype, smuggled the hot water bottle 
out of the country. He called on Florence Nightingale in London 
but was told by her housekeeper, with some asperity, that Mi^s 
Nightingale had died in 1910. Lydia muttered something an I, 
disguised as a feather boa, made his way to America, where he 
invented the blood stream. 

Medicine, as it is taught at your very own collep-" ' -m be divided 
roughly into two classifications. There is ir I medicine, 

which is the treatment of internes, and external i,.i;uicine, which 
is the treatment of externes. 

Diseases also fall into two broad categories— chronic and 
acute. Chronic disease, is of course, inflammation of the chron, 
which can be mighty painful, believe you me ! Last summer my 
cousin Haskell was stricken with a chron attack while out pick- 
ing up tinfoil, and it was months before the wretched boy could 
straighten up. In fact, even after he was cured, Haskell con- 
tinued to walk around bent over double. This went on for some 
weeks before Dr. Caligari, the lovable old country practitioner 
who treats Haskell, discovered that Haskell had his pants but- 
toned to his vest. 

Two years ago Haskell had Addison's disease. (Addison, 
curiously enough, had Haskell's.) Poor Haskell catches every- 
thing that comes along. Lovable old Dr. Caligari once said to 
him, "Son, I guess you are what they call a natural born catcher." 

"The joke is on you. Doc," replied Haskell. "I am a third 
baseman." He thereupon fell into such a fit of giggling that the 
doctor had to put him under sedation, where he is to this day. 

But I digress. We were discussing medicine. I have now told 
you all I can; the rest is up to you. Go over to your medical 
school and poke around. Bring popcorn and watch an operation. 
Fiddle with the X-ray machines. Contribute to the bone bank 
. . . And, remember, medicine can be fun I

Townsend Retires 
To Farming Life 

Coach Brought Williams 
Class A Ski Standing 



Saturday. Mar. 12 - The office 
of the Director of Athletics today 
announced the resignation of ski- 
ing coach, Ralph Townsend. Town- 
send has bought a farm in Con- 
cord. New Hampshire, and will 
leave al the end of the school 
year. Townsend is also the varsity 
lacrosse coach and is on the foot- 
ball coaching staff. 

In this, his fifth season at Wil- 
liams, he has raised skiing from 
a virtually nothing on Sheep Hill 
to ninth in the nation at Lyndon- 
ville, Vermont, two weekends ago. 
Townsend is a graduate of the 
University of New Hampshire and 
holds a Master's degree in Botany. 
Distinguished Career 

The 33-year-old coach has en- 
joyed a distinguished skiing career 
which includes being a member of 
the United States Olympic Team 
in 1948 and a member of the Amer- 
ican FIS team two years later. He 
skied the combined crosscountry 
and Jumping events. 

Although Coach Townsend is re- 
garded as one of the best ski 
coaches in the country, he has 
always dreamed of settling down 
on a farm.

Leading point-getter tor the 
Purple was hustling Bob Bethune. 
Bethune netted 10 goals and 13 
assists for 23 points, three above 
Dick Gallun. who was the high 
scorer for the Ephmen with 13 
goals. The third line of Bethune. 
Oallun and Howie Patterson led 
the offensive attack with 30 out 
of the team's 77 goals, but. never- 
theless, it was the balance of the 
lines which was the most impres- 
sive aspect of the season. 
A Balanced Team 

The three lines played inter- 
changeably, and never was the 
pressure any greater or any less 
to the Eph opponents. Besides the 
much improved record of the 
squad, its youth is one of the more 
encouraging aspects of the season. 
Only three lettermen will be lost 
next year, and the freshman squad 
should be able to fill this gap, as

Ephs Seek to Regain 
Championship Today 

Maroons Defend Title, 

Pose Biggest Threat 



by Charlie Alexander 

Saturday, Mar. 12 - The Wil- 
liams varsity swimming team is 
favored, along with Amherst and 
Springfield, this weekend to win 
the New England Championship 
at Amherst. Although the Purple 
has defeated these teams, they 
both have strong individuals who 
will be big point getters, whereas 
a Williams victory would be the 
result of a team effort. The other 
colleges competing are Wesleyan. 
Brown. Bowdoin, MIT, Tufts, 
U.Conn.. U.Mass., and Trinity. 

The Muirmen are strongest in 
the 300 yard medley relay and in 
the 400 yard medley relay. They 
could take both these events on 
a comparative time basis. Dave 
Cunningham. Dick Beamish. John 
Taylor or Bill Jenks will see service 
in this first event. 

Dietz Strong Contender 

The 220 should be a close duel 
between Bruce Hutchinson of 
Springfield and Pete Dietz. The 
two favorites did not race against 
each other in the dual meet on 
Winter Carnival Weekend. Other 
strong men will be John Thompson 
of the host college. Bill Jenks. if 
he enters this distance and Tony 
Brockelman. 

Kirt Gardner and John Taylor 
will carry the Williams hopes in 
the 50 yard freestyle. The favorites 
will be Bob Keiter of Amherst, 
who came within one tenth of a 
second of Dick Martin's pool rec- 
ord here last weekend. Bruce Max- 
well of UConn, and Walt Shannon 
of Trinity. 

Keiter Favorite 

The 150 yard medley will prob- 
ably see Jack Mayers of Spring- 
field, captain Gene Latham of 
Williams, captain Bud Pray and 
Sonny HoUister of Amherst. Tom 
Lincoln of UConn. and Dick Fogel- 
son of Brown competing in the 
finals. 

The strongest three men in the 
diving will be Jim Farrier of 
Springfield, the defending cham-

Sports Roundup 



bif Kim Burhauk 

With tlie dcjjarture of \ arsitv ski coach Ralph Townsend, Wil- 
liams will suffer the loss of a man, diniinutixc in himself, who has 
raised skiinu; at Williams to the point of national recojjnition. Dur- 
inj; and after the war skiing had languished with the team's actixi- 
ties confined to informal jjracticc on Sheep Hill and occasional tri]5s 
farther north. Now Townsend has organized a tough training pro- 
gram and has ]5artiallv triumphed in his tough fight for (proper 
einiipment. non-existent upon his arrival. This has been accomplish- 
ed only through the de\oted efforts of a man, who gave up jirac- 
tically all the free hours of his day to getting the trails in shape as 
well as his skiers. 

It was the skiing know-how and inspiration which Townsend 
brought to Williams which helped his skiers into the thick of east- 
ern intercollegiate competition. The coach had a long background 
to draw from, starting with his competition at Lebanon High School 
and then at the University of New Hani))shire. In 1948 'Townsend 
was chosen to rejiresent the U. S. at the Olympic Games in the Nor- 
dic combined, and in 19,50 went to the FIS championships. Tlie 
Nordic combined is Townsend's forte, and it is his al)ility to teach 
the Swedish bounce technic)ue and to wax that has given Williams 
one of the top Nordic teams in the east. To]i performance here com- 
bined with a conseryati\e and steady showing in the Alpine events 
is the factor which has allowed Williams to compete against col- 
leges which tlraw the top notch high school and )5rep school racers. 

The rapid rise in Williams' skiing fortunes started in 19,51 im- 
inediateU' after Townsend's arri\al, when the team captured the 
Class B title. It repeated in 19.52, but that season added a Class A 
rating for the first time, which it held the following year with an 
excellent fourth place at the Class A championships. Although the 
Townsendmcn sliiijied last winter, the\' climbetl right back this 
)'ear against toiigli odds with a victory in the Class B's, a sixth at the 
Class .^'s, and a ninth at the National Championships.

THE WILLIAMS RECORD, SATURDAY, MARCH 12, 1955 



Former British Foreign Service 
Official To Speak Here Monday 



Sir Bullard To Discuss 
Middle East; Diplomat 
Speaks 1 1 Languages 



Saturday, Mar. 12 - Sir Reader 
Bullard, former British Foreign 
Service Officer and Ambassador to 
Iran, will deliver a lecture on "The 
Middle East and Democracy" 
Monday night at 8;30 p.m. in Jes- 
sup Hall. This is another in the 
series of discussions sponsored by 
the Williams Lecture Committee. 

Fresh from a tour of Turkey, 
Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, 
Egypt, and Kuwait Sir Bullard ar- 
rived in tlie United States in Feb- 
ruary to carry out a six-week 
country-wide lecture tour under 
the auspices of the British Infor- 
mation Service. 

Varied Career 

Born in 1885, he served 40 years 
in the British Consular and Diplo- 
matic Service, 36 of which were 
spent in or near the Middle East. 
Sir Bullard is quite a linguist, hav- 
ing a knowledge of Latin, Greek, 
French, German, Spanish, Italian, 
Arabic, Turkish, Persian, and Rus- 
sian. 

At 26 he became Acting Consul 
at Trebizond, Turkey, and was ul- 
timately transferred to Basra, 
Iraq. He was serving in Basra when 
Turkey attacked Russia and the 
Indian Expeditionary Force was 
sent to what is now Iraq. Except 
for a few weeks spent in Teheran 
in 1918, Sir Bullard served in Iraq 
until 1921, and the following two 
years in Winston Churchill's Col- 
onial Office. 

Ambassador to Persia 

After four years in Moscow and 
Leningrad in the early 30's he re- 
turned to the Moslem World of 
French Morocco, Saudi Arabia, and 
Persia. He was first Minister and 
then Ambassador in Persia from 
1939-1946, and saw the growing 
danger that Persia might come 
under Axis and later Communist 
influence. 

Sir Bullard witnessed the his- 
toric Teheran Conference attend- 
ed by President Roosevelt, Marshal 
Stalin, and Mr. Churchill. 

Following his retirement in 1946, 
Sir Bullard was honored with ap- 
pointments as chairman of a com- 
mittee to select students for schol- 
arships in Oriental, Slavonic, East 
European and African languages 
and cultures. Chairman of the 
Libyan Currency Commission, and 
a Director of the Institute of Col- 
onial Studies.

meets, and Dave Van Hoesen of 
Amherst. The 100 yard freestyle 
will also see Keiter. Maxwell, 
Jenks, Taylor, Gardner, and Shan- 
non in close contention. 

Close Final Relay 

Defending champion, Mayers of 
Springfield should retain the 200 
yard backstroke title. The next 
five places should be a tight bat- 
tle between Pete Lewis, wlio turned 
in a Williams pool record with 
his fine performance in the Am- 
herst meet, Cunningham, who took 
second place in the same race, and 
Pray and HoUister for the Jeffs. 

Art Semle of Springfield, Paul 
Helmreich of Amherst, and Dick 
Beamish of Williams should go all 
the way to the finals of the breast- 
stroke. In the 440 Dietz should 
make it very difficult for Hutch- 
inson to retain his New England 
title. Thompson of Amherst could 
also cause trouble. 

The 440 yard relay should be an 
extremely close battle between a 
Trinity combination of Campbell, 
Varro. Holstrom and Eberle, the 
speedy Amherst quartet of Keiter, 
Bevan, Thompson, and Savage, 
and the Eph group of Gardner, 
Taylor, Latham and Jenks.

Kerr Announces 
Travel Bureau^s 
Trip to Bermuda 

Williams Men To Enjoy 
Blue Skies, Females, 
Sailing, Sunbathing 



Saturday, Mar. 12 - Bill Kerr 
'56, president of the Williams Tra- 
vel Bureau has again announced 
the bargain trip to Bermuda that 
the Bureau is currently offering to 
sun-starved Williams men. For 
the sum of $155, all able or semi- 
able-bodied Ephs who are interest- 
ed, can spend nine idyllic days on 
a mid-ocean paradise where the 
skies are always blue and the fe- 
males outnumber the men by a 15 
to 1 ratio. 

Flying Pan American from New 
York, takers will arrive on the 
island Sunday, April 3, and stay 
at the recently renovated Ameri- 
can House in Hamilton. There they 
may avail themselves of beds, a 
large brunch, and buy lunch and 
dinner. Pleasure will cease on the 
twelfth, when the plane will re- 
turn. 

Besides the extraordinary low 
prices (As much as $100 lower 
than tliat offered by otlier col- 
leges) Williams men have the add- 
ed advantage of the fact that this 
year's spring vacation coincides 
with that of almost all girls' 
schools. For those with eccentric 
tastes, Bermuda also offers swim- 
ming, tennis, sailing, sunbathing, 
and ample opportunities for start- 
ing a sea-shell collection.

Hockey . . . 

the frosh had a strong first line 
and an undefeated season. 

The defense of the '55 season 
was as balanced as the line play, 
with Captain Bill Irwin, John Hol- 
man, George Welles and Carl Don- 
ner consistently playing a fine 
brand of hockey. Dick Marr play- 
ing fourteen of the squad's fifteen 
games, had an average of four 
goals a game scored against him, 
saving 88'^ of the shots opponents 
tired at him. The sophomore goalie, 
improving as the season pro- 
gressed, allowed only one goal In 
the Amherst victory. Irwin and 
Welles did most of tlie scoring for 
the defense, with Irwin's three 
goals and five assists giving the 
captain the high total of eight 
points. Irwin's bruising defensive 
play, combined with Ills long, ac- 
curate, bullet-like shots, made him 
one of the most valuable members 
of the team. 

Highlights of the Year 

Selecting the best games or the 
highlights of the year is not an 
easy thing to do, but the team's 
opening game against Tufts, its 
upset over a strong Norwich team, 
and its closing victory over Am- 
lierst are certainly among the most 
impressive and memorable feats of 
the season. Playing well for the 
first game of the year, tlie Eph- 
men lost only, 8-6, to a strong 
Tufts aggregation. What is im- 
portant is that this game gave the 
McCormickmen the confidence 
and the assurance that they would 
not be as other Purple hockey 
teams had been in the near past. 

Norwich, having two days earlier 
defeated a very strong Middlebury 
club, was upset by the pucksters, 
4-3, with Doug Poole, Bob Lein- 
bach and Dick Flood impressive 
for tire Purple. Amherst, however, 
was the most memorable game, 
with Mac Fiske, Gary Leinbach. 
and Bill Irwin playing the last 
game of their college career, out- 
standing on offense and defense. 
It was a good season, but we can 
look to next year with increasing 
enthusiasm.

Gifford, English Teacher, Lectures 
On Emily Dickinson's Life, Poetry 



Poems Show Force, 

Very Personal Style 



Wednesday, Mar. 16 - On Thurs- 
day afternoon at 4:30, the Faculty 
Lecture Committee presented a 
lecture by Mr. Donald Olfford on 
the sub.lect "Emily Dickinson", 
The last two lectures In this series 
to be presented In the Thompson 
Biology Laboratory will be a lec- 
ture by Mr. Peter Fay on "English 
Common Law" and "An Earth- 
worm's view of New England" by 
Mr. John A. MacFayden. 

Giffoid pointed out that the 
assumptions which one makes re- 
garding the poetry of Emily Dlck- 
in.son have a tendency to break 
down early in the study of It. To 
define this poetry as "lyric", for 
instance, would seem to be a suf- 
ficiently "simple generality", but 
In tei-ms of the lyric poet's rela- 
tion to the reader, such a classi- 
fication Is difficult. 

Cites Verse 

Citing verses of Thomas Carew 
and Walt Whitman, Olfford show- 
ed that most lyric poetry is public 
expression of a thought or senti- 
ment that may be private, but is 
nonetheless consciou.sly directed 
towards the reader. Poetry for 
Emily Dickinson, however, seems 
more to be the expression of "words 
the silent feel", poetry so highly 
personal that she did not attempt 



Donald Gifford 

to direct her thought towards the 
reader. This fact, Gifford said, 
sometimes gives a suggestion of 
ambiguity to her work. To resolve 
such ambiguities, we must both 
understand the fact that her 
poems were not intended to be 
heard, and something of the poet's 
life itself. "To her". Gifford said, 
"the poem was an explicit state- 
ment, and not in the least ambig- 
uous."

Group To Consider 
Rathskellar Failure 



Wednesday, Mar. 16 - Senor 
deLahiguera, Director of Student 
Union Activities, has announced 
the makeup of the new Student 
Union Committee for 1955. The 
chairman is Phil Palmedo '56, 
and the secretary is Sy Becker '56. 
The other members are; Seymour 
Preston '56, Mel Searls '57, Jim 
Mable '57, Joe Liebowitz '57, Dave 
Phillips '58, and Lou Lustenber- 
ger '58. 

Last year's Committee led by 
chairman Ned Heppenstall '55, 
presented their annual report to 
the Piesldent and Trustees in De- 
cember of 1954. In this report, 
they cited that "Baxter Hall is 
enjoying wider, fuller, and more 
beneficial use by the student body 
and college community than was 
the case at this time last year". 
Particular mention was made of 
the improved situation in the game 
rooms and in the .snack bar. 

Also included in this report was 
mention of present deficiencies in 
the Student Union .setup and me- 
thods of improvement were sug- 
gested. "The chief deficiency in 
the utilization of the building's po- 
tentialities lies in the Rathskellar," 
according to the committee. "The 
main reason for this room's fail- 
uic is that it is not adequate for 
tlic extensive social functions of 
the freshman."

McGinnis, New Haven Railroad President, 
Gives Talk on 'How to Win a Corporation' 



Barbara Ward Jackson Delivers Lecture; 
Author Reviews Challenge of Coexistence' 

Wednesday, .March 9 - This e\eniiig in Jesiip Hall the Williams 
Lecture (Committee presented Mrs. liarhara Ward |ackson. c.\- 
loreign editor ol the IjOndon ICcoiioniisI and author ol such hooks 
as Failh iiiul h'iccdoiii and I'olicij for llic West. Mrs. Jackson dis- 
cussed the "C;liallenge of Coexistence" in today's world. 

.•\pproachinii; the topic from an historical angle, Mrs. |ackson 
analy/.ed the <'ffect of the West upon the rest of the world during 
the past three centuries. This effect is today's threat to the West. 

As the western states developed, tliey ]5rodnced a "dynamism ". 

oThe dynamism had both its good 

effect, cliaracterized by its stress 
on the importance of the indivi- 
dual, and its effects, shown in 
the form of greed and avarice. 



I-Vidav, Maich If - Under the auspices of the Williams Lecture 
(Committee, Patrick H. McCinnis, President of the New 'i'ork. New 
lla\en and Ihirtlord Hailroad, outlined the remedies of the ])reseiit 
unhuorahle situation ol railroads, as well as causes of the indus- 
try's difficulties. The topic of this evening's talk in jesup Mall was 
"How to Win a Corporation". 

McCinnis, who successfully gained control of the .New flaxen 
line last ,\pril, ijointed out that most proxy fights are cau.sed either 
hy poor manageinent, or hy the theory that the stock is more attrac- 
^Otive when someone outside is at- 
tempting to win command. "Such 
an example is Montgomery Ward 
whose president, Sewall Avery, is 
fighting the attack on the com- 
pany's policy of conservative divi- 
dends." He stated that the organi- 
zation of a proxy battle is costly, 
long, and highly regulated, with 
management having the advan- 
tages on all counts. 

Rubber Tire Competition 

In discussing the current situa- 
tion, McGinnis stressed the un- 
fair position of railroads as com- 
pared with other means of trans- 
portation. Most common and pri- 
vate carriers have no regulatory 
laws, while railroads operate under 
the Interstate Commerce Com- 
mission Act of 1887 and are not

yiilliams Debaters 
Conquer Vermont 



Communist China Issue 

Serves as Resolution 



Thursday. Mar. 10 - A freshman 
and an upperclass team from the 
University of Vermont journeyed 
liere today to participate in prac- 
tice debates with the Adelphic 
Union. The debates, which took 
place in Goodrich Hail, were both 
concerned with the topic "Resolv- 
ed: That the United States should 
extend diplomatic recognition to 
Communist China." 

The freshman debate began at 
4:00 p.m. Louis Kiefer and Ada 
Pratt of Vermont were first and 
second affirmative, respectively, 
while Dave Ekholm and Tom Syn- 
not argued the negative for Wil- 
liams. The Vermont judge later 
called Synnot the best debater. 
Both sides agreed that the ques- 
tion was one of expediency rather 
than morality, with the affirma- 
tive averring that this country 
was at a disadvantage caused by 
inability to deal directly with 
China, and the negative pointing 
out that we would inevitably lose 
Formosa, a keystone to western 
defense. 

Phillip!!. Zeuner for WiUiams 

After dinner the debaters re- 
turned for the varsity debate. 
This time the home team had the 
affirmative, put forth by Dave 
Phillips '58 and Bob Zeuner '55. 
Vermont's negative team was com- 
posed of John Gay and Don Karp. 

Much of the discussion was cen- 
tered around the issue of U. S. 
prestige, the affirmative holding 
that prestige in the U, N. would 
be enhanced, and the negative 
stating that we would "lose face" 
in the all Important Orient. 

Friday night Williams varsity 
affirmative and negative teams 
took on further opposition from 
the University of Rochester. 



Greed and avarice, resulting 
from ambition in trading for 
wealth, developed into the colon- 
ial system with all its cruelties 
and injustices. It soon began to 
dominate and subdue the better 
manifestation of dynamism in 
cases where the West dealt with 
other nations. Marxism developed 
In reaction to this. Conceived in 
the West, it substituted strict eco- 
nomic laws in the place of the 
capitalistic system. 

Impact of West upon World 

The present problem of co-exis- 
tence, according to Mrs. Jackson, 
lies with the world co-existing with 
the West, not as is generally 
thought, the West with the East. 
The impact of tire western sys- 
tem upon the undeveloped nations 
was severe and is exemplified by 
the distruction of their societies 
and cultures. World War I saw the 
West dominating the world com- 
pletely. It failed to do much ex- 
cept exploit the other nations. 
The myths of the western system 
did not and still don't hold true 
for the poor countries of the world, 
and where the myths fail, com- 
munism appeals. 




Tomorrow night at 7:15 in the P'reshman Lounge the Camera 
C;luh will pres<'nt an illustrated talk on Kodachrome and Kodacolor. 



The Williams competition in the National Intercollegiato 
Bridge Tournament will he played in the Student Union Rathskel-

whole concept" of cutting and is 
designed to give students "a max- 
imum responsibility and at the 
.same time see that he meets a 
minimum obligation of attend- 
ance. Mr. Pierson called the pro- 
posed system "certainly more le- 
nient". 

Change in Discipline 

One of the objectives of the new 
plan will be to change the present 
rule by which students are penal- 
ized for over-cutting, thus elim- 
inating the concept of "no-cuts". 
The proposed system sees the ques- 
tion of attendance as one of ful- 
filling individual course require- 
ments rather than one of disci- 
pline. The new plan would remove 
the problem completely from the 
discipline area. 

Mr. Pierson was not sure whether 
attendance at chapel or 'P. T. 
would fit into the new plan. He 
did note, however, that there was 
a need to revamp the present ad- 
ministration of both chapel and 
P. T. 

Unlimited Cuts 

In 1937 an unlimited cut sys- 
tem was inaugurated in an at- 
tempt to give students a greater 
responsibility for their own edu- 
cation. The first year only seniors 
were permitted to take advantage 
of the new system. 

The sophomore and junior 
classes followed in the next two 
years. The amount of cutting be- 
came so prodigious that it became 
difficult to conduct classes. Empty 
seats were particularly noticeable 
on Saturday mornings. 

Few Modifications in Rules 

A stringent cut policy was ini- 
tiated at that time and has been 
in effect up to the present. Most

Editorial 

Towards Unity 

111 the l;ist meeting of the College Council, two propo.saLs coii- 
eeniiiig the pie.seiit .social system were passed. The first of these 
recoiiiineuded that some plan be foimded by which the up])erclass 
nieii could i^et to know the freshmen — i.e. let them eat every so of 
ten ill the Student Union. The second considered the altering of the 
present ride which prohibits treshinen from entering the u]5])erclass 
dormitories. 

The first ot these proposals is completely artificial. It puts the 
frt'shman under a more obvious full year rush than is existent at 
the present time. No less than the freshman, each member of a 
house is under the same pressure. Altliough the starry-eyed pro- 
ponents of such a plan are trying to accomplish a closer unity in the 
college, such a method as fraternity dinners at the Student Union 
would be too artificial a means to this end, and would present many 
problems of finance, schedule, and help. Such obvious defects can 
not be circumvented with dinners, teas, or bo.\ lunch picnics. 

Howe\er, tlie fact that the school is divided into two distinct 
and immiscible groups is becoming more and more obvious as the 
systein of deferred rushing progresses. The job of obtaiiring rides 
for freshmen is assuming the rank of a major house office in inany 
of the fraternities. It has almost gotten to the point where there is 
a "Rushing Curtain " between the (|uad and the rest of the campus 
The atteiri])t to ])roniote friendship between members of the fresh- 
man class has completely ignored the possibility that upperclass- 
inen and freshmen coidd also form lasting and profitable acquan- 
tanceships. If the relaxing of the restrictions on iipperclass dorms 
can break down this barrier without further emphasizing the om 
nipresent attitude of rushing, then such a plan will help unify the 
college and at the same time make it stronger. 

J.A.D. Jr. 



LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 



To the Editor of the RECORD; 

1 have just learned of the College Council's latest proposal 
(which, as I understand it, carried the Administration's blessing) 
which would have one fraternity march en masse to the freshman 
dining lounge each week, there to mingle in a pure, non-artificial 
atmosphere with the Innocents. 

May I suggest to the Council, solely in the interests of maiir 
taiiiing this heavenly state, that mints and water constitute the bulk 
of the menu. Perhaps, as a second suggestion, the fraternity mem- 
bers should be carted over to the Palace in a bus provided for just 
such a purpose. This would, of course, eliminate any possibility of 
the Impressionable ones being dazzled by any fraternity's total dis- 
play of auto-ware. 

In closing I would like to state that I am in full agreement with 
the College's unswerving policy of de-emphasis of fraternities and 
of rushing, as well as its jiolicy of making the social life of the 
freshman year as natural as possible. 

Your Servant

Tonight and tomorrow - TlIK LONCJ WAIT starring Anthoiiv 
Qiiiiui with Cene Kvans and Peggie C;astle; and HHAPSODY star- 
ring Klizabeth Taylor with Vittorio CJassinan, John luicson, and 
l.ouis (Jalheni. 

Friday and Saturday - CARMEN JONKS starring Dorthy Dan- 
dridge and Harry Belafonte, Pearl Hailey, Olga James, and |oe Atl- 
ams; and CREST OF THE WAVE starring CJene Kelly. 

Sunday - THE BLACK SHIELD OK FALWOU'IH starring 
Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh. 

Monday and Tuesday - SENSUALITA starring Eleonora Ros- 
si Drago; and CHILDREN OF PARADISE. 



The double bill at the Walden tonight should be interesting 
even if the two flicks can't be given "A" ratings. THE LONC; WAIT 
is another effort to bring Mickey Spillane to the .screen, but some- 
how the work of the greatest novelist of our time loses something 
in tlie transition. The loves and fights of Anthony Quinn (both 
against women) puts this show in the average category for mur- 
der flicks. 

If you plan to go to the local movie tonight, make sure you 
arrive in time for the co-hit, HHAPSODY. The plot is no rose, but 
the viewer manages to ignore this slight defect as Elizabeth Tay- 
lor appears the majority of tin- time. Each appearance of the beau- 
tiful leading lady is accompanied by a change in the actress's cos- 
tmne. Miss Taylor's efforts tiuii a rather poor featine into a very 
fast hour and forty miinites. 

W. T. Q. 



Carmen Jones is one flick that is worth seeing, even if it does 
mean flunking a few hour tests. It consists of Ceorge Bizet's o])era, 
"Carmen", recast in a modern setting. Oscar llaminerstein is the 
man who dubbed the modern lyrics into Bizet's melodies. In this 
contest, Bizet definitely comes off second best — especially when 
his familiar "Toreador' song is sung by a smoothie prizefighter. 
But on the whole, the music comes as a refreshing change from 
the hack sound-tracks of most current musicals. 

In the posters, sexy Dorothy Dandridge is billeil as the star. 
Actiuilly, Harry Belafonte walks off with the acting laurels, in the 
difficult role of a soldier who kills an officer and hides out in a 
dingy apartment in Chicago (with Miss Dandridge, Natch.) The 
ending conies to a tremendous dramatic climax which will keep 
e\en the \eteran flieksters on the edge of their seats. 

J. A. 



Cal King makes a real effort to bring spring in with a bang 
with SENSUALIT.A on Monday and Tuesday. Eleonora Bos- 
si Drago is a new star who shoidd offer Williams men a refreshing 
ciiange from the old standbys. And the French co-hit with Eleonora 
should be a pretty good show in itself, that is. if New York ainl- 
iences are to be considered any judge. CHILDREN OF P.\R.>\- 
DISE has been doing quite well in tfie big city for the last two 
months. This presentation is worth Ephnien s consideration.

UMass Fraternity Brothers Solve 
Dateless Lome's Female Problem 



(Rewritten from infornmlion in The Mtissuehiisetts Collegian) 

Dateless? One of the brothers of .Alpha I'.psilon I'i at the Uiii 
versity ol Massachusetts has thai perennial ijioblem. In fact, Loni , 
Neusner. a jiniior fioni Lawrence, Massaehnsetls, has not had i 
date since he arrived al the .Vuiherst school some three years a>;i) 

But Louie's fralernitv brothers proved that evi'ii today thci. 
is such a thing as haternal brotherly love. 'I'he AEP's started ,i 
"(Jet a Date with Louie" contest. Entry blanks were eireulated on 
the UMass campus in the coed dorms. Saturday, March 5 was tin 
deadline for enterprising females to get their enlrys to .Alpha I'ip 
silon Pi. The contest winner was guaranteed an all-expense-paii 
trip for a distance of 500 yards from the campus to the traternit\ 
house on a Saturday night. 

WhcTi the deadline date was reaeheil, the .AEP's had a grand 
total of o\('r one hundred "I want a dale with Louie" or "l.onir 
should ha\c a date with me because " letters. 'I'he letter .selected 
was a |)oem written by Carolyn Kasanol who described herself in 
the lollowiug manner: 

I'ln all ot live leet and adoiabh' t(M), 
Pick ME, Louie, to haxc a hidlabaloo! 
.So what are you waiting lor'? get on th<' hall; 
Select Carolyn Kasanof. the best of them all. 

As it tinned out, the lucky wimn'r ri'ccived a lot more tlui 
promised. (Carolyn was gi\en a corsage, a complete wardrobe clean 
ing. a /ephyr wool sweater, and flowers. .All the gills were Iron 
Louie's considerate fraternity brothers, who were deterniiiied Ih.,, 
Louie's fiist collegiate date was going to be i|uitc an impressi\( 
one. 

In addition, the attracti\c fi\<' fool bnnietle will have tin 
honor ol being (|ueen ol one ol the country's post-season bowl 
games. Carolyn will reign o\er the "Nose liowi " game between tin 
.AEP's and Thela Ejjsilon Phi on 'I"lnnsda\ evening. Saturday niglii 
the AEP's will hoKl a "Louie Party" to pay homage to ,Mis. Lonii

THE WILLIAMS RECORD, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16, 1955 



Finest Eph Quintet in History 
Recaptures Little Three Title, 
Participates in NCAA Tourney 



By Stu Auerbach 

Wednesduy, Mur. 16 - The most 
successful busketbnll season In 
Williams CoUeife history drew to 
II close last week us the Ephmen 
lost out In the opening round of 
the Eastern NCAA championships 
to Canlslus. WUUums. the smallest 
school In the 24 team tourney, 
was defeated by a 13 point margin 
tlKit did not give a true picture 
of the game, which was very close 
until the closing minutes. 

New records were set both by 
the team and by Individual players 
this year. Ron Wilson, co-captain 
and forward, will be remembered 
for years to come sm the best 
scorer ever to wear a Williams unl- 
foim. He has scored 994 points 
in his three year career, just miss- 
int! being the first Ephman ever 
U) tally 1000 points. Wilson broke 
tlie three year .school scoring mark 
of 711 points set by Harry Sheehy 
in 1951 in the fifth game of the 
year against Hofstra. Last year, 
auainst Wesleyan, he set a new 
single game scoring mark of 44 
points. 

Break Gym scoring mark 

llii' team broke the Lu.sell Gym 
record for the mast points scored 
In one night as they reached 107 
in defeating Rhode Island early 
in the season. ThLs was also the 
first Williams team as well as the 
first team from a Little Tliree 
school, invited to the NCAA tour- 
nament. 

But it did not have the honor of 
being the second basketball team 
in Williams hLstory to go through 
a regular .sea.son undefeated. The 
Eph.s were beatt'n by Amherst. 
68-BD. That loss was later avenged. 
The only undefeated Eph five was 
the t^am of 1910. This year's team 
finished Its regular season with a 



17-1 record and had a total sea- 
son's mark of 17-2. 

Two Easy VViiui 

The Ephs started the season with 
two wins by large margins over 
easy opponents — Union and Ham- 
ilton. They then hit their stride, 
playing their best game of the 
season, as they completely over- 
powered a strong Rhode Island 
club. 107-75. It was this game that 
showed Williams fans that they 
were backing a better than good 
team, as the Ephs gave those pre- 
sent in the Lasell Gym a show of 
precision ba.sketball that will long 
be remembered. 

Prom there. Williams went on 
to conquer Hofstra, a small .school 
just outside of New York, 83-70 
in another game earmarked us 
tough. From then until the Dart- 
mouth contest, every game was a 
snap as the Ephs defeated Trini- 
ty, Bates. Bowdoln. Wesleyan, und 
UMass by scores averaging about 
20 points. 

Dartmouth Kough Foe 

Dartmouth provided the third 
big test for the Ephs. This game 
was labeled "do or die" for Wil- 
liams, which tlien showed a 9-0 
record. And Williams did. turn- 
ing back the Indians 67-49. play- 
ing one of its best games of the 
season. 

The next big test for the Eph- 
men was Springfield. After being 
behind at the half. Willians fi- 
nally came through to beat the 
Maroons. 85-75. Then Vermont 
and RPI fell easy victims of the 
Ephmen's powerful attack. 
Streak Ends 

But all good things must come 
to an end. and the end was Am- 
herst. Playing their best game 
against the Eph's worst, the Jeffs 
stopped Williams' undefeated skein

Bratches Hoops 27 
In 51 - 19 Triumph 

Thursday. Mar. 10 - Phi Gamma 
Delta defeated Delta Upsilon to- 
day in the championship game of 
the intramural basketball league 
by a .score of 51-39. Phi Gam's 
Ronny Bratches was the high scor- 
er of the game, netting 27 points. 
High scorer for the DU's was soph- 
omore John Suddeth with 16. Ear- 
lier the Phi Gams had defeated the 
Chi Psi's and the Hoosacs in 
playing off a three-way tie for 
first place in the Thursday lea- 
gue. They won by .scores of 61-43 
and 61-44. 

In the opening minutes of the 
championship game, the Phi 
Gams took a lead, scoring 14 
points lo the DU's seven. The DU's 
attempted to close the gap in the 
second quarter and at one point 
almost tied it up. but Rupe Lowe, 
Prank Wingate. and Bratches 
quickly widened the lead once 
more. Lowe controlled the boards 
for the Phi Gams, while Wingate 
racked up 13 points during the 
game. 

Increase Lead 

At the half, the Phi Gams were 
leading by five points, 23-18. Sud- 
deth opened up the third quarter 
by scoring eight for the DU's but 
Bratches and Wingate tallied 6 
apiece for the winners. Bam.sey 
played well for the DU's but his 
efforts were to no avail as the 
Phi Gams increased their lead in 
the last two quarters. 

Bratches led the victors through- 
out the .second half, hitting on a 
variety of shots from various an- 
gles. He also converted several 
free throws. The Phi Gams took 
better advantage of their foul 
shots throughout the game, scor- 
ing 14 points on 24 attempts, 
while the DU's connected only 15 
times out of 35 attempts.

Springfield, Lord Jeffs 

Finish First, Second 

By Dave Sims 

Saturday. Mar. 12 - With a tie 
for the New England Intercolle- 
giate swimming championship 
seemingly apparent, an unfortu- 
nate di-squalification in tlie final 
relay nullified a Williams victory 
in that event and gave the Ephs a 
disappointing third place finLsh 
in the meet at Pratt Pool in Am- 
herst today. Pete Dietz was the 
star of the day for Coach Bob 
Mulr's Eplimen, as he copped the 
220 yard freestyle and finished 
•second to Springfield's Bruce Hut- 
chinson in the 440. Springfield 
and Amherst finished first and 
second in the fourteen-team meet. 

Scoring a victory foi- the Purple

Cunningham. Dick Beamish and 
Bill Jenks literally swam away 
from their nearest rivals, Spring- 
field and Connecticut, to take the 
300 yard medley relay in the vei-y 
good time of 2:59.5. The Ephmen 
were six seconds ahead of second 
place Springfield, and had the 
race fiom the very start. 

Dietz Outstanding 

In the first of the two great 
races featuring Dietz and Hutchin- 
son. Dietz retained his undefeated 
record in the 220 yard freestyle, 
taking a lead after 125 yards and 
never relinquishing it. It was a 
close race to the finisli, but Hut- 
chinson couldn't quite catch the 
Williams sophomore. 

John Taylor and Kirt Gardiner 
were able to increase the Eph lead 
witli third and fourth place fin- 
ishes in tlie 60 yard freestyle. But 
with captain Gene Latham plac- 
ing fifth behind two Springfield 
and two Amherst swimmers in 
tlie individual medley, the Epli 
lead was relinquislied for good. 
Buster Grossman took a tliird in 
the dive and the meet was now a 
tliiee team contest, with Spring- 
field and Amherst in first and se- 
cond place, and the Purple a close 
third. 

The Mulrmen closed the gap in 
the 100 yard freestyle with Jenks.

Traditioiuilly tlio time liotwocn sports seasons is tlic period 
sports fans look o\er the past season and come U]) witli an :>11 star 
team. I would like to |)av a small tribute to the stars of a leapie 
that reeeixes too little attention at Williams, the intramural leas;iie. 
It might he goiiinout (ni a limb but here is the 19.5.5 .\ll-lntraniural. 
lion Bratches. Phi Gamma Delta 
Whitev Kaufmann, lloosac 
Jim Biiif^ham, Tlieta Delta Chi 
Whitev Perrott, C;lii Psi 
John Sudduth. Delta Upsilon 
Two of these stars would be well worth Coach Shaw"s obser- 
vation as the \arsitv mentor begins to think of next season. Ron 
Bratches, who had trouble gettinj; his shots to drop last season as 
a reserve, has developed (|uite a jump shot and has easilv been the 
best shot on the floor in the intramural leagues. Hon dunked twentv- 
seven points to lead the Phi Gams to a .51-39 victoiA- o\cr the DU's 
and the intraiiiural title. 

Kreshniaii Whitev Kaufmann is another ball plaver dial eoidd 
easilv catch Sliaws eve. Kaufmann plavs basketball as if he has 
been doing it and nothing else all his life. He can set, he can drive, 
he can (lass. he can rebound, and lie can guard. He does them all 
well and does them with a definite amount of sa\()ir faire. 

Jim Bingham of the Tlieta Delts is the |iersonifieation of the 
s|iirit that it takes to win intramural games, the games where the 
whistle doesn't blow (piite so often. Bingham is an exceptionally 
good rehounder and a real ball hawk on defense, jini is an average 
shot but keejis his total well above a\crage because he is always 
there to rehcnnid the ones he misses. 

Whitev Perrott of the Chi Psis once again sparked his fine 
team. (;lii Psi, last vear's intrannual cage champs, weic runners up 
this vear in the Tlmrsduv league. P<-rrott is die biggest offensive 
threat for Chi Psi. He has a deadlv <|uiek one-handed set shot and 
a nice dri\ iiig one-handi'd jmnp shot. .\nd WTiifev is more than able 
when it conies to setting up his teammates. 

Rounding out die first fi\e of intramural competition is John 
Sudduth of Delta Upsilon. "Suds" is a five foot nine inch guard 
that makes the DU offense and defense click. More often than not 
it is Suddnth that manages to get the ball through to Dl' center 
C;eorge Ranisev for an easv basket. Resides passing abilifv. Sudduth 
has one of the best set shots in school and a (]nick one haiider that 
is effective against the best opposition. ,\nd it is the fast little 
guards, Sudduth and Phil Lundquist, tliat made the DU zcnie so fine 
a defense. Coach Shaw should realh- regret that one of his managers 
John Sudduth, did not come in a bigger package. 



THE WILLIAMS RECORD, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16, 1955 



Fulbright Encourages Humanities 
At Chicago Education Conference 

Wediii'sclay, Marcli 16 - Severe ciiticism ot college uiul univer- 
sity otiieials was the keynote of the national conlerenee of tlie As- 
sociation for Higher Etlueation held two weeks ago in Chicago. 
One tlioiisanti college presidents, deans ami other administrators 
from 460 collegt's and universities in 47 states heard themselves up- 
braidi'tl for today's flaws in higher etlneation. 

In the closing session of tlie conference Senator |. William 
I'ldbright of Arkansas strnck out against too great an emphasis on 
specialization in today's colleges and claimed that Democracy it- 
self was fjeing weakened hy neglect of tlu' humanities. 

Too great an emphasis on thec>~" 

sciences, technical courses and 
specialization In general does not 
produce the kind of education 
which will be of use in the solu- 
tion of the problems facing de- 
mocracy today, said Fulbright, 
former president of the University 
of Arkansas. 



Criticizes Specialization 

While acknowledging the need 
for scientists and technicians, Ful- 
bright pointed out that "Special- 
ization, by definition, focuses on 
only a small part of the human 
battle line. It orients no one to- 
ward the whole Intellectual life 
and tradition of a country." 

"Superficial Rites" 

Speaking the day before Ful- 
bright, Columbia's Dr. Heni-y Da- 
vid likewise warned that the em- 
phasis on science and technology 
must not lead to the neglect of 
the other branches of higher edu- 
cation. David blasted college of- 
ficials as "service station" opera- 
tors rather than education ad- 
ministrators. 

David said that In many col- 
leges the meaning of education 
had been lost in "superficial rites" 
such as extra-cuiTlcular activi- 
ties, internal organization or ad- 
ministrative structures. "Too many 
(colleges) respond so readily to 
the demands made upon them by 
society that they tend to operate 
as educational service stations 
rather than as educational In- 
stitutions." 

Other points on which the ed- 
ucators were reproved came from 
Dean Haskew of the University 
of Texas and President Gallagher 
of C.C.N.Y. Haskew said greater 
emphasis is being placed on "gad- 
gets" than on good teachers, while 
Gallagher called the subsidizing of 
intercollegiate sports by the col- 
leges "immoral". 



Swimming . . . 

second behind the beautiful swim- 
ming of John Mayers of Spring- 
field, who swam the 200 yard back- 
stroke in 2:16.9. 

With two races and the relay 
left, Beamish placed fifth in the 
200 yard breaststroke. In the 440 
freestyle, Dietz and Hutchinson 
had the second of their battles, 
with the latter putting on a last 
minute sprint to defeat the Eph 
star in the impressive time of 
4:44.6. It gave Springfield a six 
point lead going into the final 
freestyle relay, with the Muirmen 
ten points ahead of third place 
Amherst. 

With Keiter swimming first, 
Amherst took a quick lead over 
Gardiner, but Taylor closed the 
gap In the second leg. Captain 
Latham .iwam beautifully, and the 
Ephmen had a lead, with Amherst 
second and Springfield third, Jenks 
pulled away, and apparently Wil- 
liams had a tie for the champion- 
ships, but then the officials an- 
nounced their disqualification. It 
was disheartening news for the 
Muirmen and certainly not an ap- 
propriate ending for a fine Wil- 
liams swimming season. 



McGinnis . 



protected from users or shippers. 
The railroads today are not mon- 
opolies, but at the same time are 
not fully competitive. "The inven- 
tion of the rubber tire," said Mc- 
Ginnis, "has brought about our 
greatest competitor." He suggested 
non-regulation to bring about 
equality, allowing bulk rates and 
the ownership of private enter- 
prises by the railroads. 

McGinnis described the plans he 
has in view for the New England 
line. Besides reducing fares and 
constructing station parking fields, 
he is proposing to run New York 
to Boston expresses in two hours 
at two cents a mile. Following his 
policy of giving what the people 
want, he stated that advances are 
being made by laymen, not the 
specialists and scientists. 

The New York financier won 
the presidency of the $500 mil- 
lion system in a proxy fight last 
spring. His slate of 21 directors 
wrested control from Frederic C. 
Dumaine, Jr.. of Boston by charg- 
ing the management with lack of 
financial success and lack of real 
sales effort to increase passenger 
volume. 



Gifford . 



Life and Language 

The understanding of the life 
of Emily Dickinson, and the times 
she lived in are especially import- 
ant in evaluating the language 
of her poetry, Gifford continued. 
While to the outside world she ap- 
peared extremely shy and intro- 
verted, a popular role for women 
in the middle of the nineteenth 
century, the language and meta- 
phor of her poetry discloses a vio- 
lence and force that is almost re- 
volutionary. To illustrate this 
point, Gifford read a poem In 
which she compares death to an 
auction, with God as the auction- 
eer. In terms of the nineteenth 
century conception of death which 
was regarded more ov less as "sweet 
sorrow", the poem has a hard 
impact. Her poems. Gifford said, 
are "a fusion of thought and word, 
in which the word becomes an 
implement, like a child's epithet 
— to be hurled against an adver 
sary, or to be cherished and saved. 



Jeff Club Fined, 
^Student^ Reveals 



Rushing Code Violation 
Decries Amherst Rule 



Wednesday, Mar. 9 - The Am- 
herst House Management Com- 
mittee I HMO today voted to fine 
the Lord Jeffrey Amherst Club 
$50 for violating the HMC rush- 
ing code 8-d which forbids rush- 
ing by pamphlet, the Amherst Stu- 
dent reports. According to the 
Student, Michael Robbln '55, 
speaking for the organization, ad- 
mitted that the Club violated the 
rule because it considered the 
rule a violation of free speech, 
discriminating and unjust. 

The trouble stemmed from a 
pamphlet which was published re- 
cently by the Club and distributed 
to Freshmen, meeting both appro- 
val and disapproval from that 
and other classes. The HMC tem- 
porary chairman noted that the 
Club could appeal its fine at a 
full meeting of the HMC on April 
16. 

The Student also quoted Rob- 
bins as saying that the rule, adopt- 
ed in 1950, was "a reaction to a 
Jeff Club pamphlet put out that 
year." Robblns claimed that this 
was a discriminating action against 
the Club, which he said was a 
minority organization. 



Cuts . . . 



of the features have remained 
unchanged, although there have 
been a few modifications in at- 
tendance rules before and after 
holidays. 

The Ad Hoc committee was set 
up this fall to study the cut ques- 
tion. Since then a survey of cut 
systems in other colleges has gone 
on under the direction of Qsan 
Williams. After the proposed plan 
has been worked out in committee, 
it will be submitted to the faculty 
for a vote. Then it will go to the 
Trustees for final consideration.

Joe Kctiriu'ij '55: "I believe that opening up npperclass clouiiltorles

at 14, winning 68-60. Williams

by nipping Amherst, 53-48, Ik re. 

In compiling Its regular seu-

to 1103 for its opponents. The Ejilis 
averufc'ed 78 points per game a- 
gainst 61.2 for their opponeius, 
and were ranked as the tenth Iji st 
small college defensive team in 
the nation.

Tliroughoul the 19 games liie 
teum played, the play of co-t;.;). 
tains Wilson and Tony Moro sli.uct 
out. They were one-two in scal- 
ing and rebounding, with Wit m 
lending in scoring and Moro in 
rebounding. It will be a long ti'ie 
before Williams fans will be a ,le 
to see as deadly a duo as tli se 
two playing for the Ephs. Wll- jii 
averaged over 19 points and 11 
rebounds per game, while Moio, 
who ended the season with :86 
points, averaged 16 points and 15

Moro f inislied his college cari er 
in a blaze of glory, as he plajid 
his two greatest games in ilie 
final two contests of the .sea.sun. 
Against Amherst he sparked iiie 
second half drive tliat gave \V,1-

was all over the coui't as he scoud 
27 points and took 17 rebouiiils. 
He was the leading scorer of liie 
triple-header that night. 

Other high scorers for Williams 
were Wally Jensen and Bob Buss 
with 217 points and Bill Cullin 
Willi 178 points. Jensen and Cul- 
leii were the backcourt men lor 
Williams. Both helped the Eph 
attack in many games with their 
clutch set shooting and good driv-

Herb Smith would be counted 
among the Eph scoring leaders 
now except that he dislocated his

Williams Grad Interprets Current 
Government Abuses in New Book 




By Tom DeLong 

Telford Taylor '28 presents the 
fucts. They alone no a long way 
to condemn McCarthy as "the 
skunk hunter who absorbs the 
odor of the animal". Thus Taylor 
finds less than no point in the 

hunt". The re.sult of this be- 
iief is The Grand Inquest, a timely 
nai'rative of the story of Congres- 
sional InvestiBBtlons. Mr. Taylor 
in his latest book has gone behind 
the pages of today's newspapers 
10 interpret a vital part of our 
Kovernment, how it is being abus- 
ed, and what can be done about it. 
Published this month by Simon 
and Schuster, the documentation 
reveals the internal problem which 
faces the American citizenry. As 
iliief counsel for the prosecution 
of war criminals at Nuremberg, 
I'aylor has seen at close range 
an a.spect of his subject. The re- 
sult of that experience was Sword 
And Swastika. The parallel be- 
tween the Nazi goings on and 
McCarthy's Is remarkable. "It 
makes gloomy reading indeed." 
Mr. Taylor .says, "in the aftermath 
of the Oppenheimer and Fort 
Monmouth Incidents." 

In what he calls the "cold civil 
war". Taylor disclo.ses an acute in- 
sight and analysis of the contem- 
porary situation as well as the his- 
torical milestones of American con- 
stitutional law. As a starting 
point in the casebooks, he presents 
the first Congressional investiga- 
tion in the United States. After 
having been effectively stigma- 
tized though never convicted. Ma- 
jor General Arthur St. Clair be- 
came the first of a long "dynasty". 
His unhappy ordeal in 1792 has 
counterparts throughout our so- 
ciety's history, and most strikingly 
.since the arrival of postwar dis- 
illu.slonments and fears. Taylor 
terms those "marred but not des- 
tioyed" by Investigations, the 
"outlawry". His .solution is basic 
— political action ba.sed ui)on the 
corrective pressure of enlightened 
public opinion. 

Long-Simmering Struggle 

'I"he text is constructed upon 
the opinions and written state- 
ments of not .solely legal scholars, 
but of members of the executive, 
legi.slntive and judicial compo- 
nents. Taylor does not fall in 
bringing In the utterances of the 
citizenry. This is one of his finest 
points. To comprehend the full 
impact of the long-simmering 
struggle for power over the separa- 
tion of powers, Taylor draws hea- 
vily upon contemporary examples 
of Dles-McCarran-McCarthy oper- 
ations. They do not .stand alone. 
Taylor has dealt with Madison in 
'The Federalist". Hamilton and 
I he Bill of Rights, Congress and 
the statute of 1857, and so on 
tluough history. Such i.s the broad 
scope that is necessary in order 
to focu.s on today'.s "war".

Tufts Student Council 
Suggests Cut Policy 



Saturday, Mar. 19 - The 
Tufts Student Council has re- 
cently passed five recommen- 
dations conceinlng the cuts pol- 
icy, the Tufts Weekly announc- 
ed this week. The suggestions 
will now be passed on to the 
administration to be formulat- 
ed into a policy similar to the 
one now in practice at Wil- 
liams. This program is the cu- 
mulation of several months of 
study and a number of previous 
recommendations that were re- 
jected by the administration, 
and will replace the present 
lack of a working cut policy at 
Tufts. 

The new program would al- 
low a minimum of three unex- 
plained cuts In each course, not 
Including labs In science courses 
and physical training. The 
Council also recommends that 
» ."iystem of permissive make-up 
exams be inaugurated for which 
the student would pay a fee of 
t3 to cover proctorlng. This 
would go into effect after mid- 
terms.

BuIIard Lectures 
On Middle East; 
Stresses Caution 



Lecturer Cites Chaotic 
Conditions, Instability 
In Eastern States 



Monday, Mar, 14 - In his lec- 
ture on "Democracy and the Mid- 
dle Ea.st" Britain's former Ambas- 
sador to Iran. Sir Reader BuUard, 
told a Je.sup Hall audience to- 
night that the United States and 
Great Britain should proceed with 
"caution, patience and under- 
standing" in their rplittions with 
the states of the Middle East. "In- 
stability is their principle weak- 
ness" pointed out Sir BuUard who 
has served in the British Foreign 
Service for forty years and worked 
in all the important nations of 
the Middle East, e,speclally Tur- 
key and Iran. 

During the course of his lec- 
ture, the Biitish Foreign Expert 
ILsted the reasons causing the; 
continued existence of instabili- 
ty in the Middle East. Primary 
is the fact that there is no tradi- 
tion and experience of self-govern- 
ment in these states. Tlie breakup 
of the Ottoman Empire after the 
conclusion of World War I, brought 
most of the Middle Eastern states 
into being. Tlie chaotic times that 
followed did not permit these na- 
tions to form the foundation nec- 
essary for effective self-govern- 
ment. The peoples of these coun- 
tries are still accustomed to "dic- 
tation from above". 

Competition From Communism 

Sir Reader Bullard emphasized 
the point that, since the end of 
Woiid War II, the world has been 
divided into two main sphei-es: 
namely Soviet Ru.ssia with its re- 
volving .satellite nations and the 
Free World. Both parties have con- 
centrated their efforts on the Mid- 
dle East. Communism offers im- 
mediate results while the United 
States cannot. One of the main 
issues which illustrates this point 
is that of land. The communist 
solution is immediate seizure of 
the lands by the dissatisfied pea- 
sants. For obvious reasons the 
Free World cannot concur with 
this policy. 

In nearing his conclusion. Sir 
Bullard asked if there are any 
remedies to the basic problem con- 
fronting the Middle East. One pos- 
sible solution may be a benevolent 
dictator. But he noted the failures 
of past dictators and warned that 
this is not a cure. Tlie more last- 
ing solution would be to prove to 
the peoples of the Middle East 
that stability "can exist with op- 
position". In an area where com- 
munication is still relatively pri- 
mitive, this task would be difficult 
but not Impo.sslble. 

ALSO important to the peoples of 
the Middle East is the question of 
poverty. The Free World must 
"instill a sense of real hope" in 
both the rich and the poor and 
make them aware of the true 
nature of the problem. 



Saturday, Mar. 19 - The Adams 
Memorial Theatre will produce the 
Dudley Pitts-Robert Fitzgerald 
translation of the Antigone of So- 
phocles on March 24-26. Directed 
by David C. Bryant, Director of 
the AMT, this play is being pro- 
duced here for the second time. 
It was previously played in 1947, 

The Prologue to the plot of 
Antigone tells of two brothers of 
Antigone, Eteocles and Polyneices, 
who because of a curse laid upon 
them by their father, quarrel a- 
bout the royal power of Thebes. 
Polyneices is driven from the 
country, seeks refuge in Argos, 
and marries the daughter of Adras- 
tos. King of Argos. Then as one 
of seven captains led by Adrastos, 
Polyneices returns to Thebes to 
retake control of the country. He 
meets Eteocles at the Seventh 
Gate, and both brothers die in 
the ensuing combat. Creon, uncle 
to the brothers and to Antigone, 
becomes King; and his first offi- 
cial order is a refusal to bury Poly- 
neices. 

Antigone Defies Creon 

Antigone opens the action of the 
play by presenting this dilemma 
to her .sister Ismene. She says; 
"Creon buried our brother Eteo- 
cles with military honours, gave 
him a soldier's funeral", why then 
she continues, "should not Poly- 
neices receive the same noble treat- 
ment?" Therefore, against the 
commands of her uncle and risk- 
ing the danger of death if caught 
in her traitorous action, she at- 
tempts several times to outwit 
the soldiers guarding her brother's 
body to sprinkle some dirt on him. 

This translation is written for 
tire most part in prose but certain 
speeches have been translated in 
blank verse which combines "bed 
rock simplicity and concentrated 
richness in style". 

Starring in the production will 
be Maureen Howard, Tom Ham- 
mond and Patrick B. McGinnis. 
Mrs. Howaid will portray Antig- 
one and Hammond will play Creon, 
King of the Thebes. McGinnis will 
be Haimon, lover of Antigone.

to Yale and obtained a Doctor's 
Degree from his alma mater. 

During the war Mr. Pierson com- 
piled a brilliant record in both 
Atlantic and Pacific Theatres. He 
participated in the invasion of 
Southern France, for which he 
was awarded the Bronze Star. He 
also took part in the invasion and 
capturing of Leyte. Luzon, Iwo 
Jima, and Okinawa, and received 
many commendations for meri- 
torious service in these regions.

ed freshman football, basketball, 
baseball, plays varsity baseball, 
and is in WMS and WCC. 

New Policy 

The Incoming administration 
has several original plans for this 
year and next. The purpose of 
these proposed changes are to en- 
hance the organization's prestige 
on campus and In debating circles 
comparable to that enjoyed by 
similar groups at Yale, Dartmouth, 
and 'Vermont. 

The first of these proposed 
•shifts has to do with discussing a 
few campus topics such as Gar- 
goyle, pro and con for compulsory 
Chapel and the cut system, and 
the merits or disadvantages in to- 
tal rushing. Secondly, issues other 
than national will be debated with 
various women's colleges. A final 
Innovation will be the introduction 
of English style debating. As shown 
by the Oxford debaters during 
their visit to Williams, this is an 
attack on the opponents more 
than merely a straight forward 
I presentation of the facts. 



port advocating allowing fresh- 
men to visit upperclass dormitor- 
ies also gained the disapproval 
of the Social Council. Rod Ward 
'56 led the opposition but com- 
promised by suggesting that li- 
quor parties be prohibited. The 
fear was that alcoholic parties in 
upperclass dorms might lead to 
"dirty rushing". Whether the CO 
will concur with this compromise 
is a matter of speculation. 
Suggests I'enalties 

On the other hand, the Social 
Council found itself in agreement 
with the CC on the issue of keep- 
ing upperclassmen out of fresh- 
man dormitories. This policy has 
been in use for the past year and 
has proven quite successful. The 
SO also adopted the following 
penalties for violations of the rush- 
ing agreement; D Emphasize pub- 
licity in the RECORD of any fra- 
ternity violating the rushing rules. 
2- Two months social probation 
for any fraternity violating rush- 
ing rules. 3 ) Retain same penalties 
for freshmen violating rules. 4) 
Dscontinue monetary penalty on 
fraternities. 

With ten members in favor, 
the Social Council approved of the 
lowering of quotas. However, the 
council did not decide on any spe- 
cific numhfir tiip colle."" Council 
vetoed the Reeves Report recom- 
mendation concerning the quotas 
and favored the continuance of 
the same quota .system that was 
in effect during this past year. 
"If between 269-240 continue 
'through rushing) the quota is 
19; if between 239-230 the quota 
is 18; if between 229-220 the quota 
is 17; if between 219-210 the quota 
is 16; and if between 209-200 the 
quota is 15. 

Equality of Control 

Since the Social Council failed 
to decide on a specific numerical 
figure, a controversy at the joint 
meeting may arise. The sentiment 
of the SC is to pursue a policy 
of "equality of quality". This would 
mean a very low quota ithe low- 
est quota possible still rendering 
the theory of "total opportunity" 
effective i . The purpose of this pol- 
icy would be to spread out, as far 
as possible, the quality of the 
rushing class. 

The SC unanimously proposed to 
accept the financial report of the 
Reeves Report. Tom Yankus '56, 
representing the Junior Class, ask- 
ed for a vote in regard to a Spring 
Houseparty Band. The Council

The CC Future 



The results of tlie votes and discussions in the most recent 
nieetmg of the Social Council indicate that at the next joint ses- 
sion ot the SC and the College Council the present constitution 
ot student j^overnmeut wih be jint to a test. I'lie (|uestioii ot 
whether tresliuien should be allowed in tlie upperclass dormitor- 
ies and the detiiiition ot illej^ai rushing are problems about wliicn 
tlie SC and the CC are in disagreement. 

The house presidents are more conservative and opposed to 
any hasty changes of the jiresent system. The class officers, liow- 
ever, who are not bound by any group when they vote, are more 
liberal and willing to institute ciiaiige. These basic differences 
were apparent when the present system was accepted last spring. 
Botli councils are necessary for effective student government; 
tlie more independent CC can offer greater leadership while the 
SC serves as a stabilizing influence. 

With the two councils apparently in opposition on several 
basic points, the effectiveness of this form of student government 
will be tested. If the CC meekly surrenders the powers of leader- 
ship that its touiiders intended it to have then it will have failed. 
Not only are some important ])roblems about rushing to be decided 
but also the practical success of this two council system is at stake. 



LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 



To the Editor of the RECORD: 

1 was surprised and not a little disturbed by the headline ar- 
ticle in the RECORD of March 16th on the activities of the Ad 
Hoc Committee on the Cut System. The right of the RECORD 
to run feature articles on issues of vital interest to the Williams 
Community is imquestioiiable. But that very right carries with it 
an obligation to report and interjjret the facts accurately. The 
article under question leaves something to be desired in this re- 
spect. Dean Scott, for example, is not a member of the Comiiiittee 
as the RECORD asserts nor has the Committee met witli the Stu- 
dent Committee headed by Larry Frank. As a matter of fact, the 
Committee has yet to report to the faculty to which it owes a pri- 
mary responsibility. Furthermore, the general tone of the article 
gives the impression that the work of the Committee has proceeded 
considerably beyond what has actually been accomplished to 
date. Before any public announcement ot a new plan is made, the 
Committee must present to the faculty for discussion its plans for 
a new attendance system. Tlie Faculty Committee will also discuss 
these same plans with tlie Student C^ommittee. Beyond this no 
prediction can be made. 

The problem of working out a new attendance system is a 
thorny one which can be made many times more difficult by the 
untimely dissemination of erroneous or misleading information. 
There must be coordinated effort on tiie part of everyone to ac- 
complish the aims of the Committee in its work. 

William H. Pierson, Jr. 
Chairman, Ad Hoc 
Committee on Attendance 



To the Editor of the RECORD: 

I should like to acquaint you with a plan for total opportunity 
which is the result of my active contact and constant thinking 
about the so called "fraternity problem" at Williams during my 
four years here. 

Under this |iroposal each house would be called upon to list 
all Sophomores under one of six headings. The primary list would 
contain one hundred names in preferential order. All other Sopho- 
mores would be listed under one of the remaining headings, each 
heading being preferential one to another and e(|ual in number. 

Likewfse, each Sophomore would submit a preferential listing 
of five houses, while indicating also five additional houses he 
would be willing to join. 

No house will be allowed to fill more than seven eighths of 
its (jnota frtim its primary list save as all other houses are able to 
do so. 

The mechanics of this system would be no problem if the 
system itself could be achieved. Experience this past fall has 
shown that with houses seldom extending upwards of one hun- 
dred final bids only some twenty-five Sophomores remained tm- 
bid at the close of the formal rushing period. These twenty-five 
Sophomores would, it is expected, be listed by different houses 
under different headings; and the use of the hoimce and prefer- 
ence system with a refiiiirement that a house accept Sophomores 
listed under the fifth, nut not the last heading, would I believe, 
produce total opportunity. 

I remain, 

Cordially yours, 
Richard Maidm^n

and the lack of anywhere to go. 

A Modest Reply To Intellectual Insinuation 

Occasionally we read or hear of a malicious malcontent — 
sometimes in Shakespeare and sometunes in the Yale Daily. We 
should not really put Mr. Joe Bachelder in tliis category, because 
he frowns on criticism. We must, therefore, discard our appropri- 
ate quotations from Areopagitica. 

His comments afford us more frustrations than lie usually 
assigns to the residents of women's colleges. We may not throw 
rocks, he says, but Yale is more than a stone's throw from here 
anyway, and we refuse to throw ourseKt-s at his merciless feet. 
Hence we take our "stereotyped, predisposed viewpoints" in hand 
and dare DARE to answer. 

Perhaps we are oversensitive (although he didn't mention 
il) but we detect a sneer in Mr. B's mention of "Lovely old New 
London". Perhaps he and his crew-cut cronies have only seen 
Connecticut on a dark, moonless night, for perhaps they would 
not take time out from intellectual insinuating (we admit we 
could not understand some of the big words) to admire the scen- 
ery even if their other basic wants (we wonder what they are) 
were to be supplied. We heartily suggest a guided tour, for there 
are many students who would be willing to make the tour unfor- 
gettable — even though it meant taking time off from "the chal- 
lenge of difficult courses". We wonder if Yale numbers aniimg its 
courses Advanced Women Withering Witticism or if this is a one 
man talent. 

As for Big Sisters, we wonder why this seems a challenge. Af- 
ter all. Big Sisters sometimes find us dates with Big Yalies, and 
isn't that the dream which every jiale, placid, passionate, or par- 
ental college girl clutches to her . . . well, clutches'i' 

We put up with the lack of anywhere to go, Mr. Bachelder 
says. Oddly enough, our sign-out sheets are rather crowded with 
names of people going places. We suggest he consult the Yale 
Going Places at College or any Conn. Oiilege girl if he wants to 
know where they go (nightspots that is). 

While Mr. B. is speaking about weekend scroungers and 
shrieking gulls, let us mention last Friday's stage debut of four 
Yalies who wanted dates to the Freshman Prom that night. If 
G. C. is the poorman's Smith, these were the poor men. 

Well, we haven't thrown rocks; we haven't ground our teeth 
or even our Yale fraternity pins. We would hate to be deemed 
ungrateful for the enlightening comments of Mr. B. but we must 
say - we can see why Mr. Bachelder is a bachelor.

THE WILLIAMS RECORD, SATURDAY, MARCH 19, 1955 



Ephmen Maintain Class A Rating; 
Skiers Finish 9th in NCAA Meet 



By Uick Rigby 

Saturday. Mar. 19 - The varsity 
skiers closed out Coacli Ralph 
lownsend's last season qp-^suc- 
lessful note as they established 
Ihemsdves as the ninth best col- 
IfKe team in the country at the 
second annual NCAA Champion- 
ship meet March 4-6, As further 
indication of how far Coach Town- 
send has brought Williams' skiing 
since his taking over in 1951. the 
seven-man squad brought back 
tlielr strategic Class A rating lost 
last year in a winter hampered by 
poor weather and injuries. 

With only a pre-season meet 
for individuals at Franconla. N.H., 
and some Chilstmas-tlme training 
lit Lebanon. N.H., under their belts, 
the Townsendmen turned in a fine 
team effort at the LyndonviUe, 
Vt, Divisional Championships on 
Feb, 5 and 6 to become the Class 
B winner and thus earned the right 
to compete at the Middlebury Car- 
nival against Class A competition. 
Bill Prime led the way for the 
Purple by capturing the sklmeistei- 
award, while Capt. George Olmsted 
was winner of the Nordic com- 
bined and Pete Clark topped the 
Alpine combined entrants. 
Firth in East 

In place of the called-off Win- 
ter Curnival, the .squad entered 
the Norwich Cainival on Feb. 12 
and 13 and placed a respectable 
sixth out of a field of nine, only 
six points behind Dartmouth in 
the fifth slot. The Purple showed 
best In the cress-country event, 
as Pete Clark copped an eighth, 
Olmsted a 10th, and Pete Elbow 
an 18th, At the "big one" on the 
following weekend, the EISA Class 
A Championships held at Middle- 
bury, the varsity improved on the 
Norwich showing by taking a 
strong fifth in a field of ten. Plac- 
ing 28 points behind the U. of 
Vermont, the fourth place club, 
the team nevertheless tuined in 
their best performance of the year 
and were rewarded by the regain- 
ing of their A rating and qualify- 
ing to compete in the NCAA meet. 




George Olmsted. Ski Captain 



Though a balanced team effort 
wa.s responsible for this showing. 
Bill Prime was the big gun for 
Coacli Townsend at Middlebury; 
his eighth in the slalom race was 
one of the highhghts of the sea- 
son, and he tallied further points 
by a solid 13th in the Alpine 
combined and an 18th in the Nor- 
dic events, Sherm Hoyt came in 
18th in the Nordic combined, while 
OlmsU'd captuied a 20th in the 
Alpine contests. Sophomore Pete 
Elbow's 22nd in the cross country 
grind, and 20th in the jump plac- 
ed him a stiong 14th among the 
Nordic combined entrants. Round- 
ing out the Eph squad, Pete Clark 
contributed a 16th in the Alpine 
combined and a 17th in the cross 
country, while Hugh Clark and 
Reg Plesnar provided strength in 
the slalom and cro,ss country 
events respectively. 

Ninth at NCAA Meet 

Traveling to the Northfield 'Vt, 
home of Norwich University for a 
second time on March 4-6, the 
skiers turned in a team effort 
comparable with the Middlebury 
Carnival meet to place ninth in

Stafford Captures 
Squash Tourney 

Freshman Beats Quinn, 
Kesel, Wood For Title 



Pilday. Mar. 11 - Before a pack- 
ed crowd at Lasell gymnasium to- 
day Ollie Stafford won the 'Wil- 
liams College Squash Tournament 
in a long, tiring match with Co- 
Captain Paul Quinn. It is the first 
time in the history of the college 
that a freshman has gained this 
honor, and to do it Stafford was 
forced to defeat both Quinn and 
Co-Captain George Kesel. The vic- 
tor had previously gained the fi- 
nals in the Invitational Intercol- 
legiate Tournament earlier this 
winter. 

Because of warm weather, the 
court was fast for the final match, 
and consequently the points were 
long and tiring. Stafford, accus- 
tomed to using a change of pace 
game, mixing corner and drop 
shots to full effectiveness, was 
hindered by the hot court as his 
.shots rebounded hard and gave 
Quinn a better chance for return. 
With the Co-Captain's fine speed 
and coui'age, all points were long, 
with both players jockeying for 
the center position, Quinn took 
the first game 15-11, but the fresh- 
man star came back to take the 
next three games and the Tour- 
nament 15-10. 15-10. 15-13. With 
the easy bounces and the enthusi- 
astic play, both players were ex- 
hausted at the end of the hour's 
ordeal. 

Quinn Beats Cluett 
Co-Captain Kesel. seeded num- 
ber one, reached the semi-finals 
before losing to the freshman star. 
Utilizing his fine corner shot, he 
wa.s unable to turn back his oppo- 
nent, losing 3-1. Also reaching the 
.semi-finals was Mark Cluett, seed- 
ed number four. It was the last 
official match for the senior star 
as he lost a close, exciting contest 
to Quinn, 3-2. 

Of those seeded. Tom Jones and 
Scott Wood both reached the quar- 
ter finals, with fifth seeded Jones

Frosh Hoopsters 
Lose to All-Stars 



Yearlings Win Nine 
In Fifteen Attempts 

Tuesday, Mar, 15 - The fresh- 
man basketball team concluded 
its season tonight when it dropped 
a 50-43 decision at Adams to the 
Berkshire County All-Stars, a 
team which was made up of the 
best seniors and captains in north- 
ern Massachusetts, The All-Stars 
scored seven points in the last 
three minutes to break a 43-43 
tie, Fred Lafave of Williamstown 
and Bob Eichorn of Adams, each 
scored a basket while Dale Hume 
of Dalton scored one hoop and a 
foul to ice the game. 

The fieshmen were without the 
services of scoring ace, Co-Cap- 
tain Marv Weinstein, Ed Hughes 
led the scoring parade with 16 
points, while Ira Kowal notched 
eight and Dave Alien and 
Ben Hull had four. The Purple 
trailed 26-17 at half-time and 
tied the game with three minutes 
left in the game. 

Win Nine Games 

The All-Stars used fifteen men 
in the contest, with all but four 
of the squad scoring, John Gen- 
zabella of Pittsfield High led the 
winners with ten points. Bob Eich- 
orn was second with eight and 
Dale Gardner of St. Joseph's High 
of Pittsfield. tallied seven points. 
The game was played in the Adams 
High Gym before 800 spectators. 

This loss brought the freshman 
record to nine wins and six losses 
with seven of these triumphs com- 
ing in succession after a disap- 
pointing opening game loss to 
Union. This victory string was 
broken by the Dartmouth fresh- 
men, who ended the season unde- 
feated. Two more wins followed 
over R,P,I. and Siena before the 
Purple dropped their last three 
scheduled games to Wesleyan. Mid- 
dlebury and Amherst. High points 
of the season were the wins over 
UMass.. Siena twice and R.P.I.,

Frosh Icemen Rout Lord Jeffs 
To Finish Undefeated Season; 
Cook, Lombard Lead Scorers 

tiij Clict Lasell 

Saturday, Mar. 19 - By dowiiiiij; arcli-rival Amherst 8-1 last 
week on home ice, tlie 19.5.5 VVilliuins liesliiiiaii liockey s(|iiad fin- 
i.slied its season iiiideleated with an eij^lit wins and no losses re- 
cord. 'I'liis marks flic second consecutive year in which Purple 
Irosli hockey has j^oiie unbeaten witli a string of eigliteeii wins in 
a row over the two seasons. Mucli of tlie credit for the outstanding 
play of this year's fresliinen must go to Coach Nels Corey, who 
took over for the 1955 season to fill the vacancy left by Bill McCoi- 
niick, coacli of this year's 7-7-1 varsity s(|uad. 

Certainly tlie outstandinj^ factor in the luibeatcii year was tlie 
consistently ^reat phiy of flie first line of (Japtain Dave Cook at 
center, and Itieliie l.oiiiijard and Boh Keltic at the wings, one ot 
the smootliest working units to play Wilhains hockey in a long 
time, .■\loiie this trio accounted lor 43 goals and 3.3 assists in an 
(iver-all team attack which scored .58 goals and 48 assists. Cook 
was high man with 23 goals and 9 assists, while l^omhard netted 
16 pucks with 9 assists and Keltic only 4 goals but set up tlie plays 
well, assisting 15 times. 

Defeiifie, Goaliei, .S/ro/ig 

Also impressive for the Coreyinen was the starting defense of 
Tom l\'niiy and Rick IDriscoll, wliicli not only provided excellent 
protection for goalies Denny Doyle, Dave Seymour and [im Ste- 
vens, but also lieljied out with 8 points between them. So effec- 
tive was the Purple defense that opposing teams were able to score 
only five times during the season. I'be second line of Steve Frost, 
Dave Wood and Dick Storcli played well as did the second de- 

Oiensive team of Jim Bowers and 

Fred Clifford. Also seeing action 
for the frosh were Gerry Putnam. 
Mick Briggs. Ed Dever and Rob 



Racquetmen End 
Successful Year 



Frosh Attain 6-1 Mark; 
Stafford, Jones Lead 



Wednesday. Mar. 13 - This 
year's freshman squash team fin- 
ished the season with the enviable 
record of six wins and only one set- 
back. It was the finest squash 
season In many years of Williams 
freshman competition in the sport. 
Wins over Harvard. Wesleyan and 
Amherst highlighted the season 
along with two wins over Deerfield 
and one over Choate. 

The only loss sustained by the 
Eph frosh came at the hands of 
a deeper and more experienced 
Yale squad. Although the Wil- 
liams team walked off with wins 
in the first three positions, the 
rest of the team was unable to 
come up with one of the necessary 
two wins for victory. The final 
score was 6-3. 

Three Excel 

The frosh were very fortunate in 
having three good, experienced 
players in the first three positions. 
Oliver Stafford, who played the 
number 1 position, dropped only 
one match in a highly difficult 
schedule. Tom Jones and Rogers 
Southall played the numbers 2 
and 3 .spots respectively, and both 
wound up the year with unblem- 
ished records. These three together 
won a total of 20 matches out of 
a possible 21. 

The rest of the team also did 
very well and acquired experience 
which will be useful in future var- 
sity years. Tlie make-up of the po- 
sitions on the rest of the squad 
vaiied, but others who played con- 
sistently were; Crawford Blag- 
den. Tom Shulman. Jud Parmar. 
Don Smith. Wes Heilman and Bill 
Weaver. 



Hall. 

The Purple squad opened its 
season with a crushing 13-1 rout 
of Mt. Hermon at home with 
Cook and Lombard each scoring 4 
goals. A week later on January 12 
Vermont Academy was shut out 
4-0 and three days after this win 
the frosh traveled to Choate for 
a 6-0 conquest. Seymour was out- 
standing at Choate. An 8-0 rout 
of a poor Lenox team followed In 
which Cook and Lombard both 
turned in the hat-trick. On Feb- 
ruary 12 at home the Purple met 
Taft. the strongest team played 
all season, and the squad looked 
its best in an overwhelming 8-2 
triumph with Cook scoring 4 and 
Lombard 3. 

Hotchkiss. Deerfield, Jeffs Fall 

Playing an undermanned Hotch- 
kiss six at home on February 16, 
the team stretched its string to 
6-0 with a 5-0 win. Deerfield came 
to town ten days later and threw 
a scare into the Purple by lead- 
ing 1-0 after one period before 
succumbing under a potent six 
goal attack. The Amherst game 
was one-sided all the way with 
only 48 saves by the Amherst 
goalie preventing the score from 
being a lot higher. Cook had 2 
goals and 3 assists, Lombard 2 
scores and 2 assists and Keltie, 
Driscoll. Frost and 'Wood all tal- 
lied once in a game in which Doyle 
was called on for only 7 stops 
throughout. 

As starting goalie in most of 
the games. Denny Doyle turned in 
consistently fine performances in 
the nets. Although a fine defense 
allowed the opponents few shots 
at him. he was one of the keys to 
this team's success. This strong 
group conbined with the predom- 
inately sophomore varsity bodes 
well for future Eph hockey. 



SPORTS ROUND-UP

AA.T.CO. MODUCTOr 



111 Amherst's Pratt Pool where tlie New England swimming 
championships were ri'ceiiflv held, the Williams stjuad under the 
tutelage of Bob Miiir sa«' a tie for the clianiiiioiishiiJ slip from their 
hands in the final iclav. Underneath the gloom caused bv the de- 
feat which marred a su])erb team )ierformaiiee and the second 
fastest relay time e\er turned in by an Eph (iiiartet. three seconds 
better than second |)lace .\mherst, emerges a more important fac- 
tor which helps make Williams teams under Coach Muir so dis- 
tiiicti\'e. There was natural disappointment for all, but a spirit 
which Muir helps to infuse in his coin))etitors was the dominant 
feature in their loss, \hiir teaches his performers to be men, to 
be real jjcople, rather than meielv out for the sport to win, which 
although iniportaiit. comes secondarv. It is a matter of building 
character for Muir, who savs that if a man does his best, no mat- 
ter the result, he is better for it always. This came out when his 
team let the coveted title escape their grasiv The team gathered 
together and gave the coinijcting teams a clieer tbe moment they 
realized tliev had lost and congratulated those who had beaten 
them. There was no real bitterness. 

The Williams swimming team will harbor this defeat in their 
minds no doubt for a loiii; time to come, liut it will make them 
all the more determined to come back next year and capture tlie 
championship once more. Springfield has won the title for two 
straight vears now, but this heavilv junior team will be at its 
peak next season. With the addition of some depth from the frosh, 
it should be stronger than ever. Captain Gene l.athain. who tuni- 
ed in such a fine performance all seascni will be sorely missed, 
but then Springfield will lose Hutchinson, Senile, and Mayers, 
while .\mherst at their swimming peak this year will be weaker 
after Pray, Mollister, and Helmreich graduate this June. The 
great Boli Keitor, who put on a one man show in the New Eng- 
land's will not be enough to carry the Jeff swimmers in their 
campaign next year. Coach Bob Muir's team will come back and 
win the title they missed bv .such a close margin this year, and 
tested by defeat, they will come back with a greater sense of de- 
dication. 



THE WILLIAMS RECORD, SATURDAY, MARCH 19, 1955 



Fay Delivers Faculty Series Talk 
On Topic ^^English Common tau;" 



History Teacher Traces 
Background, Examines 
Bentham's Criticism 



Thursday, Mm-. 17 - Mr. Peter 
W. Fay. Instructor in History, 
gave the sixth in a series of fac- 
ulty lectures this afternoon in the 
Bioloyy Lab Auditorium. Speaking 
on the topic "The English Com- 
mon Law". Mr. Fay gave a highly 
humorous and informative ac- 
count of its history to the present 
day. 

The roots of common law, he 
asserted, can be traced back to 
Anglo-Saxon England, when jus- 
tice was decided by ordeal or bat- 
tle, God deciding the winner and 
the judge merely interpreting His 
decision. 

Norman Innovations 

After 1066 the Normans estab- 
lished more lasting forms of jus- 
tice, most important of which was 
the King's Court. It gradually be- 
came the most important court of 
the land, and its justice came to 
be known as "common law", or 
"that law which the Norman kings 
made common". 

Illustrating its evolution with 
an examination of the writ of 
habeas corpus, Fay shed consid- 
erable light upon the distinguish- 
ing features of common law. Ori- 
ginating as a royal order to seize 
people, it soon became a court 
tool against the king's wishes. 
When the king tried to stop this 
practice, Parliament, whose mem- 
bers had been seized under it be- 
fore, passed a law legalizing it, 
and it now remains a procedural 
writ enabling a jailed person to 
have a trial. 

Jeremy Bentham 

Mr. Fay showed the differences 
between common law and such 
forms as code law by an examina- 
tion of the criticisms of Jeremy 
Bentham. 

Instead he recommended the 
Continental code law,— cheaper, 
quicKei, and not dependent upon 
vast precedents but upon a sim- 
ple set of rules. Mr. Pay, however, 
upheld common law on the grounds 
that it gives the best justice and 
makes a judge an umpire, not an 
"inquisitor" or a "prosecutor".

result of Senator McCarthy's aC' 
tivities of last year. As early as 
March, 1954, the RECORD com 
mented on a lecture by Taylor in 
Pitt^fleld on "Congressional 111' 
vestigating Committees". At that 
time, he pointed out that he was 
not opposed to the idea of these 
committees and that the purpose 
of investigations is to enable Con- 
gress to legislate in a state of fac- 
tual enlightenment rather than 
ignorance. 

The successful result of the book 
is the unraveling of the essence 
of the "Constitutional crisis of 
1954." It is a narrative for every 
American. The struggle involves 
our total citizenry from Dr. Robert 
Oppenheimer to Annie Lee Moss. 
The question to ponder, according 
to Taylor, may well be the classic 
query, Quis custodiet ipsos eusio- 
des — who shall guard the guards 
themselves? 

One of Williams' most promi- 
nent alumni in the field of law. 
Telford Taylor has already had 
noteworthy careers as writer and 
government administrator. After 
graduating from Williams in 1928, 
he studied at Harvard. During the 
war, he served with distinction in 
the Army intelligence service and 
in 1946 succeeded Justice Robert 
H. Jackson as chief counsel at 
Nuremberg. Between 1935 and 
1939, Taylor was counsel to the 
inquiry into the Congressional in- 
vestigations of railroad finance 
headed by Senators Burton K. 
Wheeler and Harry S. Truman. 
More recently, he has been Small 
Plants Administrator in Washing- 
ton.

Barrow Performs 
Original Sonatina 

Violin, Viola, Cello 
Accompany Organist 

Friday, Mar. 18 - Robert Bar- 
row, Chairman of the Music De- 
partment, tonight gave an organ 
concert in Chapin Hall. A good 
sized ciowd attended to hear Pro- 
fessor Barrow, who was accom- 
panied by members of the Spring- 
field Symphony Orchestra. They 
were Marlyn Crittenden on the vi- 
olin, Martin Fischer on the viola, 
and Corinne Flavin on the cello. 
Miss Crittenden is concert mis- 
tress of the Springfield Orchestra 
and is a well known soloist. Pro- 
fessor Barrow played two of his 
own compositions, an aria and 
scherzo, from a Sonatina for the 
Organ. The program also included 
the works of three classic com- 
posers. Bach, Mozart and Brahms, 
and compositions by two contem- 
porary musicians, Walter Piston, 
Professor of Music at Harvard, and 
Paul Hindemith, German-Ameri- 
can composer and violinist. 

The sole Bach composition play- 
ed was Tocatta in D minor. Three 
sonatas for organ and strings by 
Mozart were presented, as well as 
three Choral-Preludes by Brahms. 
The high point of the evening was 
the performance of the "Sonata 
No. 2" by Hindemith, which came 
immediately preceding the inter- 
mission.

and Rog Southall, the other two 
seeded players were eliminated in 
the third round by Dick Ennis and 
John Barton respectively. With 
three freshmen placed in the top 
eight of the college, the outlook 
for next year's team and those in 
the future is very good.

Saturday. Mar. 19 - The ■Wil- 
liams Plying Club has recently 
elected its officers lor 1955 ac- 
cording to ex-president Herb Mo- 
ser. Dick Wilde, '57, succeeds Mo- 
ser as piesident while Dick Call 
'56, becomes secretary. Don Mor- 
rison '57. will be the new treasurer, 
and Phil Lazier '57, was elected 
chairman of correspondence. 

The Club expects to embark on 
a program of interesting freshmen 
in the activities of the organiza- 
tion in the near future. There are 
presently no freshmen in the club, 
but when the present seniors grad- 
uate, there will be opportunities 
for them to join. 

For flying purposes, tlie club 
owns a Cessna 140 which is a two- 
seater with a cruising speed of 
107 mpli and a range of 400 miles. 
The plane has had a new paint 
job, engine overhaul, and new 
tires, and is like a new plane. It 
is possible through the club to ob- 
tain a solo license for $72.

this means an $80 tax per house

sired house presidents to secure 
sentiment concerning a semi-for- 
mal dance. 

President Bob Bethunc '56 
brought up the problem of local 
children entering fraternity liouses, 
and stealing therein. He al.so an- 
nounced that Bernaid Kelly '57

member. Prior to the conclusion 
of the meeting, the Weslcyan Eat-

passed out and will be discu.ssed 
at a subsequent meeting.

Consistent high scorer Marv 
Weinstein has averaged 17.1 in 
twelve games with several nights 
of twenty points or better as well 
as pulling down the third highest

Hughes has scored just over 10 
a game and leads the team in re- 
bounding with 78. Showing the 
greatest amount of improvement

hustling brand of play. Center 
Ben Hull is second in rebounds 
and currently tossing in 8 a game, 
while Bob Kingsbury tallies 6 per

has played well defensively 
throughout the season. 

Lack of height has plagued the 
team all through the year with 
the lo.ss of certain tall men through 
ineligibility only adding to this 
problem. John Van Hoven, who 
only came out with two weeks to 
go in the season, is the squad's 
tallest man at six four and next 
is Hull at only six one. Thus the 
Purple squad has had to make up 
for what it ha.s lacked in height 
by good shooting and .scrappy 
performance.

What young people are doing at General Electric 



Young engineer 

is responsible for 

design analysis 

of $3,000,000 

turbine-generators 



The average large steam turbine-generator 
costs $3,000,000 and takes two years to build. 
It is one of the biggest pieces of electrical 
equipment made. Yet its thousands of parts 
are ])ut together as carefidly as a fine watch. 
Even a small change in design can affect the 
stresses and vibration of the turbine, and 
the way it performs. At General Electric, 
several men share the responsii)ility of pre- 
dicting those effects before tiie turbine is 
built. One of them is 29-year-old E. E. 
Zwicky, Jr. 

His job: analytical engineer 

Here's what Ted Zwicky does. He takes 
a proposeil mechanical design feature, de- 
scribes it mathematically, breaks it down 
into digestible bits, modifies it, and feeds it 
to electronic computers. (It may take two 
months to set up a problem; the coiii|)uters 
usually solve it in twenty minutes.) Then 
Zwicky takes the answers from the com- 
puters, translates and interprets them so they 
can be followed by design engineers. 

23,000 college graduates at General Electric 

This is a responsible job. Zwicky was readied 
for it in a carehd program of development. 
Like Zwicky, each of our 2.'i.000 college- 
graduate employees is given a chance to find 
the work he does best and to realize his full 
potential. For General Electric believes this: 
When young minds are given freedom to 
make progress, everybody l>cncfits-the in- 
dividual, the company, and the country.

Other parts in tlie play will be 
filled by Charles Hewett '55 as

Mrs. Collier Wright as Eurydice, 
wife of Creon; and John Lang- 
maid '56 and John Mattice '56 as 
members of the Chorus. 

The set for The Antigone which 
was designed by Rounds, repre- 
sents the facade of Creons pal- 
ace. It is colored in different 
shades of grey, and to a certain 
extent indicates the stagnation 
and decay of the end of a Greek 
Era. There are two massive doors 
which lead Into the palace and 
are flanked by large plane col- 
umns.

Designed by Bryant, the cos- 
tumes for this play are .semi- 
traditional of the era and were 
taken from Greek vase forms. 
Marked by rich colors of green, 
yellow, brown, and purple, many 
of the costumes are trimmed with 
Kold or silver.

Wednesday, Mar. 23 - Tliis past 
weekend .something new was add- 
ed to the Williams scene with the 
arrival of eighteen boys and girls 
from the Church of the Master 
Ifouth Club from 122nd Street in 
New York City. Don Clark and 
George Kelsey. both of whom 
graduated last year and are now 
at Union Theological Seminary, 
are working with this youth group 
and initiated the visit. 

KeLsey and Clark worked in 
conjunction with the Williams 
College Chapel in organizing the 
weekend which was primarily to 
give these Harlem students a 
I chance to leave the city, many for 
the first time. Tony Ferguson '57 
and Harry NichoLs '58 headed the 
WCC Committee for the venture. 
The other members were fresh- 
men Pete Frost and Sam Jones. 

I'liinney's Favorite Five 

A few arrived in time Friday 
night for supper in the Chi Psi 
house and the rest pulled in a bit 
later. En masse tliey were treated 
the rest of the evening to the 
.solid dixie of the freshman jazz 
band, otherwise known as Phin- 
ney's Favorite Five in the Con- 
gregational Church. 

After the jazz, the boys headed

Wed. March 23 - The proposed 
Mt. Greylock tramway lias brought 
about a conflict of opinion 
throughout the state of Massa- 
chusetts. At a public hearing held 
last week in Boston, proponents 
and critics presented their views 
to clarify original legislation out- 
lining the powers of the Ti-amway 
authority establtshed to build and 
operate the aerial Uft to the sum- 
mit of the state's highest moun- 
tain. 

The promoters testified at the 
State House that engineers have 
estimated the lift will pay for it- 
.sclf in 16 years and give the Mount 
Greylock Reservation Commission 
a two-billion-dollar surplus to car- 
ry on the project. Among the sup- 
portcis are Robert C. Sprague Jr., 
Chairman of the Authority, and 
Rep. Richard A. Ruether of Wil- 
liamstown. the WiUiamstown 
Board of Trade, and Atty. Robert 
E. Kelley, secretary and counsel 
for the Authority. "It has been 
estimated," said Kelley "that the 
net revenue for the first year of 
operation would be about $208,- 
000." Pa.ssengers would get a mile 
ride from the vicinity of Gould 
Farm. Adams to the .summit, and 
the fare would be about $1.50 a 
round trip. The cable cars would 
carry 50 pa.ssenBers between the 
two towers. According to the pro- 
moters, .ski areas would be develop- 
ed only if there is a substantial 
demand. Winter operations would 
pay off in whatever efficiency and 
stability the Authority might a- 
chieve in maintaining a year-round 
staff. Kelley stated that if there 
is no skiing, there will be no scar 
whatever on the mountain. The 
cable that will be strung between 
the two towers will scale the trees, 
thereby causing no harm to the 
forests and wild life.

Art Professor Reviews 
Evidence about Jesus 



Sunday, Mar. 20 - "What We 
Know About Jesus" was the topic 
of Professor William H. Pierson's 
sermon in chapel this evening. 
Professor Pierson is a member of 
the Art Department, and has been 
affiliated with the Williams Col- 
lege Chapel for a number of years. 

Pierson began his sermon with 
an outline of a story by Anatole 
France concerning a meeting be- 
tween Pontius Pilate and a boy- 
hood compSnion of his. from whom 
he had been separated for many 
years. Pilate, now an embittered 
and elderly man, complained of 
the pressure that had been put on 
him to order the execution of 
men whose guilt was tmcertain. 
His friend asked him if he could 
remember the execution of a 
preacher called Jesus, and he 
could not. Pier.son pointed out that 
just as Pilate was closer to Jesus 
geographically and chronological- 
ly than the Church later founded 
in Rome, but could not even re- 
member the man, so the scope of 
Christianity today is almost uni- 
versal, but facts about Jesus him-

Wednesday, Mar. 23 - Other col- 
leges can boast of having budding 
authors, musicians, and artists 
on their staffs, but Williams is 
unique as the only institution that 
has a playwright hidden in the 
basement of one of its cla.ss build- 
ings. Our playwright is Mrs. Marie 
McNett, who works in the base- 
ment of Hopkins as a faculty sec- 
retary. In this job. .she must put 
down her literary talents and take 
on the prosaic task of typing out 
course syllabi. 

Her best-known play is "Cradle 
of Glory". This fits into the gen- 
eral category of historical drama, 
and the more limited class of 
Plays about Abraham Lincoln. It 
treats Lincoln's boyhood and adol- 
escence, from the time he was se- 
ven years old until he came of 
age at 21. Commenting on the 
Play, authoress McNett said, 
"There is no play concerning this 
particular period in his (Lincoln's* 
life, and no Lincoln cycle is com- 
plete without this period, during 
which his character was estab- 
lished." 

World Premier 

The world premier took place 
'n August of 1948 in a summer 
theater In Mlchlana, Indiana.

Cradle of Glory" has had four- 
teen productions since the pre- 
mier. "The most amazing part of 
It," .says Mrs. McNett. "is that 
of the fourteen, there has been one

I In addition, copies of the play 
have found their way into in- 
numerable libraries all over the 
world. Authoress McNett believes,

Tuesday, Mar. 22 - Mr. Samuel 
Homsey, father of Coleman Hom- 
sey '56, addressed the Art 8 sec- 
tion along with several other in- 
terested persons at the Lawrence 
Museum this morning, discussing 
the whole range of problems in 
"Education in Architecture". 

Well-qualified to speak in this 
field, Mr. Homsey and his wife 
own an architectural firm in Wil- 
mington, Del. He has designed 
several modeiii schools in Wil- 
mington and is currently working 
on a new modern Church there, 
along with a Greek Orthodox 
Church in Boston and a public 
housing development for the Air 
Force in Delaware. Mrs. Homsey is 
presently designing a house for 
Joseph Johnson, former History 
professor here and now President 
of the Carnegie Peace Foundation 
at Princeton.

turing two days a week at MIT

tecture at the Museum of Modern 
Art m New York City.

$5000 to Williams 

Queried on possible Williams 
benefits. President Baxter revealed 
that Westinghou.se had just noti- 
fied him of its intention to give 
the college $5000 in 1956 and again 
in 1958, for u.ses as yet unspecified. 

The Wcstinghouse program 
breaks the $5,000,000 fund into 
three branches, the major por- 
tion is to go towards "school oper- 
ating expenses and building equip- 
ment funds", with lesser appro- 
priations going to scholarships, 
fellowships and professorships and 
for special educational activities. 
Other William.s grants 

Heading the list of recently- 
announced Williams benefits is 
the $25,000 grant from the Gen- 
eral Foods Corporation Fund. 
Williams is one of three colleges 
in the country singled out for the 
award. 

Other recent gifts to the college, 
include $5,000 from the Standard 
Oil Company of New Jersey; 
$2500 from DuPont, and a newly 
announced scholarship from Proc- 
tor and Gamble. The General Mo- 
tors $2,000,000 annual education

Wednesday, Mar. 23 - The 
French Department will present 
Dom Juan, a French comedy by 
Moliere at the Adams Memorial 
Theatre April 18. Directed by 
John K. Savacool. Assistant Pro- 
fessor of Romanic Languages, this 
play is an analysis of the Dom 
Juan character and a study of the 
hypocrisy of human nature. 

Dom Juan, originally a Spanish 
drama, was turned into a bitter 
French comedy of character. The 
plot is concerned with Dom Juan 
the seducer who feels that he 
cannot love any one woman, that 
his heart was made to love the 
whole world. He lures two young 
peasant girls into his web of 
charm, easily convincing both that 
each alone is the object of his love. 
Dom Juan in the last act is play- 
ing the hypocrite: he cannot save 
himself from damnation and is 
thus lost to the devil. 

Redecker as Dom Juan 

The title role of this production, 
will be played by Bret Redecker '55. 
His servant will be played by 
Francis Schell '56, ahd his father 
Dom Louis by John M. Garfield 
'56. Elvire, Dom Juan's last ne- 
glected wife, will be portrayed by 
Denise Sheahan; and her two 
brothers. Dom Carlos and Alonse, 
will be played by Bruno Quinson 
'58, and Rob Wright '57 respec- 
tively. Eric Gustafson '55 will take 
the role of M. Dimanche, the tailor 
and creditor of Dom Juan. 

Pantomime interludes have been 
composed for this production by 
Mrs. Jol Oberly. The costumes 
were designed by Mrs. Rassi Gil- 
ford and contrast both French 
and Italian styles. A musical score 
was composed for this production 
of Dom Juan by Assistant Pro- 
fessor of Music Walter L. NoU- 
ner, and the set was designed by 
Frank A. Ti'app of the Art De- 
partment. 



and calling dirty rushing all talk 
by a fraternity member "discre- 
diting" another house in addition 
to the Reeves proposals. The Reev- 
es Report had favored a more 
open approach. 

SC-CC Disagreement 

As in the past the disagreement 
on these two matters clearly re- 
flected the basic disagreement be- 
tween the Social and College 
Council views, which precludes 
the possibility of a quick solu- 
tion. The College Council mem- 
Ders generally favor a quota re- 
duction of one and an open de- 
finition of rushing whereas the 
house presidents, fearing above all 
else the ruin of one or more weak 
houses, are against all measures 
designed to create this fear. 

The other Issues met with less 
opposition from the members. The 
Councils voted unanimously in fa- 
vor of the proposal calling for a 
financial report to be made out 
by each house and were also un- 
animous in favoring upperclass 
visits to the freshman quad with- 
out previous JA permission. They 
also disapproved by unanimous 
vote of plans to allow frosh in 
the houses. 

Penalties 

On the question of penalties the 
Councils also favored changes in 
the Reeves Report, although sen- 
timent was by no means unani- 
mous. Eleven preferred both pen- 
alties of social probation and a 
$300 fine for violations of the 
dirty rushing provisions; six 
wanted probation only and four 
merely the monetary penalty. The 
probation, as defined by the 
Councils, would be for two aca- 
demic months and restrict ALL 
women guests from the house in- 
volved. 

Finally, the Councils favored 
allowing freshmen in upperclass 
dorms, though once again con- 
siderable disagreement was in evi- 
dence between the Councils. By 
an 18-2 vote, however, it was re- 
solved that if malpractices oc- 
curred, the plan should be stop- 
ped. All these votes merely indi- 
cate sentiments of each individual 
member and do not necessarily de- 
termine the rushing agreement 
for next year.

Ignored Opportunities 



Four year.s of educiitiou at Williams can he .spent in many dif- 
ferent way.s (lepeiulint; on the particular uuderirraduate's interests. 
A few students enter the college library the first day of their fre.sli- 
mau year and seldom reappear until their j^raduation in |une four 
years later. .\t the other e.\treine, a few uiiders^raduates somehow 
manau;e to i;raduati' from college after four years of hard and con- 
centrated partying with a couple of ilavs off for hasty trannuiug at 
the end of each term. 

Fortmiately, neither group is in the majority here at Williams. 
Most students combine e.xtracurricidar activities, athletics, parties, 
and studies into foiu' normal, well-romided years of college. Unfor- 
tunately, liowe\er, even diis majority has [ia.ssed up one facet of a 
Williams education that few are aware of and e\en fewer take ad- 
\imtage ol. l>;vi'ry week throughout the college year, several lec- 
tures are gi\-en and many discussion groups arc lield, and despite 
publicity most .students "stay away in droves". 

Lectures and Exiiihilions 

In addition to the faculty lectures which include topics dis- 
cussed by members of most of the de])artmeuts at Williams, there 
are many guc'st lectm-ers who speak in Griffin or Jesup Halls. The 
economics deiiartment is sponsoring a series of lectures which are 
being given by noted economists and businessmen. Philosophy 
c()llo((Miums pro\e of interest e\en to those who may not be phil 
majors. The lecture committee frec|ueutly brings noted s|)eakers to 
Williams, and this committee has also been responsible for the ex- 
cellent and inforuiati\e discussion groups that take place in the 
lounges of the Student Union. The Lawrence Art Museum regularly 
featines varioirs e.xhibitions as do the library and the Student Union. 

Natinally few if any students have the time or such diversified 
interests that they can attend all or even a majority of the lectures 
and exhibitions that are made available. It is not natural, however, 
when most of the audiences that gathei- for these lectures and dis- 
cu.ssions in Griffin or Jesup are composed almost entirelv of towns- 
people and the facidty and their wives. Undergraduates are almost 
always in the minority, and yet they are the ones h)r whom these 
speakers are imited to Williams. Such lectures and discussions are 
part of die liberal arts education for which Williams is famous and 
for which most of us supposedly came to college here. If indeed, 
one of om- jiiuposes at college is a well-rounded and mature educa- 
tion, it seems a shame to contiiuie to ignore these opijortimities. 



*Peggy Lamson Achieves Fame 
As a Fashion Reporter tor A¥ 

by Fi'le I'lciniiiji .57 

The telephone rang last .August in a little apartment In Paris 
in which Dean anil Mrs. Hoy Lamson w<'r<' \aeationiiig. The \()iee 
on the other end of the wiri' iuijuired, "(.'ouUl vou cover the Paris 
lashion openings starting Sunday for the .Associated Pri'ssr"" Mrs. 
Lamson at first thought tiiat some Williams .\lunums was trying to 
bluH her. This was not true, however, and within three days "Peg- 
gy" Lamson was making front page news In nearly (),()00 papers 
served by the .AP throughout the world. 

Mrs. Lamson came upon fashion writing tpilli' by accident. 
She is a playwright, novelist, and short story writer. Her novel, 
"The t;harm C^ircle", written in 1951, \v;is basi'd upon the fraternltv 
.system of a snuill New England Ca)llege. This hook ereati'd a great 
furor on the Williams campus. l''or a period when her hnsbanil 
was at Har\ard instructing and earning his doctonite, she was a 
Simday feature writer for the Boston Globe and Boston Herald. 
Pdiii liccoinca a Circus 

After tlie war, when SILVPE was set up in Paris under Gen. 
Dwight D. Eisenhower, her husband was asked to heconie olticial 
historian of the operation. .Mr. Lamson took a lea\e ol absence 
from Williams, and the Lainsons lived In the French capital Ironi 
•Vpril 1951 to .\ngust 1953. Whili' In Paris, .Mrs. Lamson madi' 
many actpiaintances among the .Vmi'riean newspaper and inuga/ine 
writers. It was when the Lamsous were back in Paris last .\ugust 
tliat she was asked to cover the fashion openings of fall and winter 
clothes because the regular .\P writer was on leave ol absence. 

Twice a year, August and February, new collections are shown. 
At this time Paris is flooded with buyers and reporters from all 
over the nation. Each buyer must pay $1,000 to get into the "grandes 
maisons" — the fashion iiouses such as Ghristlan Dior and )ac(|ues 
P'atli. Mrs. Lainsons stories on tlii' new Dior "flat look" were the 
first to hit tlie papers last August. 

ToKg/i Schedule 

In the three days she had before the opening show, .Mrs. Lam- 
son went to the American Embassy and bought every fashion mag- 
a/.lne bt'ing sold. From these, she drew up a glo.ssary of "lashion 
lingo" to use in her releases. Things became so liectic, however, 
once the showings started, she resorted to a straight reporting ap- 
proach. This was unheard of in the lashion world. Ca)nimenting 
on her ditterent style, she said, "the hoys in the office really liked 
it, as it was the first time they had ever nnderstoiKl a tasbion story. 

.\gain this February, Mrs. Lam.sou was asked to cover the 
spring and suuuner collections. In order to pay for her fare on till' 
Liberie, the versatile wife of the dean of frcsliinen did an .Vmerican 
version ol a French book for an .\merican magazine. .Mthongh the 
showings last little longer than a week, a fashion writer is constantly 
going to rev ii'vvs ol new styles and meeting copy deatUines. The 
morning cycle of showings begins at 10 and lasts nntil 12::?(). be- 
tween l2:.i() and the next session at 2 P. M., the tlay's first release 
for the afternoon papers must be dashed off. "This process contin- 
ues :dl day and eveiu'ng til vou are about ready to collapse al 
uiidniglit", ((nipped .Mrs. Lamson. The last lew days are spent re- 
viewing the whole hnsini-ss and doing :i buyer's reaction story. 
This includes what the new trends .seem to he and what styles are 
likely to he most ])opular. 

Dior's Pcirli/ 
But there is some fini mi.xed widi all tlie hard work, our new 
fashion writer reminded nu". Dior gives a linge cocktail |)artv in 
his magnificent Paris apartment lor all the press. At his partv tins 
February, attended by about 500 reporters, Mrs. Lamsous fur coat 
disapjieaied. Dior promised to send her a new mink cape it it 
didn't show up in the next coiipli^ of davs. "Unfortunately,' mused 
Mrs. Lamson, "1 received my old ratty coat the next day via a 
special messenger."

life called the student council. Firat of all, what i.s the student 
council? The answer is simple: the student council is a council 
of students. 

Next, what does the student council do? Again the answer Is 
simple: it meets. 

Next, what goes on at the meetings? This question is rather 
more complicated than the others. Perhaps it can best be an- 
swered by reproducing here the minutes of a typical meeting 
of a typical student council.

.oing together, and his record is 
a fine tribute to his determination 
and leadership. 



By Stu Auerbach 

Wednesday. Mar. 23 - The win- 
ter track team, which performs 
before more people each year than 
does any other Williams team and 
receives less public notice, com- 
piled an enviable record this year, 
reaching its peak with a thrilling 
victory in the mile relay at the 
New York Knights of Columbus 
meet in MadLson Square Garden 
on March 5. 



Besides the relay team, indivi- 
duals were entered in various 
events throughout the year. Behr 
took a third in the Pioneer Club 
Handicap 600, fini.shing behind 
Olympic champion Andy Stanfleld. 
Behr had a slight three yard hand- 
icap on Stanfleld who was run- 
ning from scratch. 

Boston Meets 

In the first meet of the season, 
the Boston YMCA affair, the Eph 



Racing in .six of the season's top , relay team won its heat, easily 



indooi' meets at Boston and New 
York, the mile relay team was al- 
ways in contention in its race. 
But it was not until the final 
meet of the season that the run- 
ners were able to win their gold 
medals. 

Weak Second Leg 
The relay team boasted three 
strong men, but was weak in the 
fourth .spot. Three different run^ 



beating Bowdoin. But Boston Col- 
lege, running in another heat, had 
a better time and so was declared 
the overall winner with Williams 
■second. In the Boston K of C 
meet, Williams finished third be- 
hind Northeastern and Boston 
College. A tight three-way race 
between Tufts. Holy Cross, and 
Williams was the feature of the 
Boston Athletic Association meet.

Grossman. Lewis Set Records 

Immediately following Latham's 
record in the Bowdoin meet, Bus- 
ter Grossman followed suit and 
set a new diving mark. He topped 
the previous high of 102.6 points 
for eight dives by amassing a to- 
tal of 107.78. and the junior star 
will have all next season to at- 
tempt to better his impressive 
showing. 

Pete Lewis' lecord came in un- 
doubtedly the most exciting race 
of the year, A thrilled crowd at 
Lasell Gymnasium watched the 
junior backstroker race to a new 
pool record and virtually clinch 
the Amherst meet and the Little 
Three Crown, Lewis' time of 
2:20.7 broke the old pool record of 
Dave Byerly by over four seconds, 
and he is capable of even more 
as he proved in the qualifying 
round of the New Englands, 

Strone Next Season 

With the loss of only two regu 
lars, captain Latham and George 
Montgomery, Williams should 
have one of its most outstanding 
teams next year. Coach Muir was 
more than enthusiastic as he 
spoke of the '56 team, saying that 
the team "should be one of the 
finest I have ever coached".

successful season, it is difficult

THE WILLIAMS RECORD, WEDNESDAY, MAUCM 23, 1955 



Rev, Cole Advises Vpperclassmen 
In *SeXy Love and Marriage' Talk 



Juniors, Seniors Attend 
Seven Meeting Series 
To Solve Problems 



Wednesday. Mar. 23 - For the 
past six years. Reverend Cole, As- 
sistant Professor of Religion, has 
been delivering a series of lec- 
tures on "Sex. Love and Marriage" 
in the Biology Building. The basic 
purpose of the course is to pro- 
duce a healthy attitude in stu- 
dents in regard to problems cen- 
tered about boy-girl relationships. 

In the first lecture. Dr. Cole 
distributed pamphlets dealing with 
questions of sex published by the 
Duke University Family Life Bu- 
reau. This served the purposes of 
finding out how much the stu- 
dents knew. In the following two 
meetings, the questionnaire an- 
swers were thoroughly examined 
and discussed. 

Dating Problems 

The College Chaplain dealt 
with the problems of dating in 
his fourth meeting. He concluded 
that the present system of dating 
is a "phony" in that the boy does 
not seek a date of true quality, 
but merely dates an attractive 
girl in order to boost his own so- 
cial position. 

One of the unfortunate aspects 
of 20th century dating is that a 
boy expects a "reward" after he 
has invested a great sum of mo- 
ney in a date. The girl likewise, 
seems to feel obligated. Dr. Cole 
stressed the need of greater op- 
portunities at Williams for stu- 
dents and their dates to get to- 
gether and spend a social even- 
ing instead of each couple imme- 
diately pairing off and leaving 
the crowd. 







Swimming . . . 

the memorable events, and this 
year's season is no exception. Un- 
doubtedly the 46-38 triumph over 
a previously undefeated Amherst 
team, and the heartbreaking dis- 
qualification in the New Eng- 
lands rank high on the list of 
most memorable events. 

Pete Dietz's undefeated season in 
the 220 coupled with his impres- 
sive showings in the 440 making 
him the leading point-getter on 
the team, and a man that could 
always be counted on. The 300 yard 
medley relay team's outstanding 
record in losing only once, to 
Colgate, and placing first in the 
New Englands. Klrt Gardiner's 
steadiness in the 50 yard free- 
style. John Taylor's third and 
fourth in the Intercollegiates. 
Coach Bob Muir's never ending 
encouragement. These are but a 
few memories of a fine swimming 
season. 



Reverend Cole

lege record for the 600 in this 
meet. 

The big win of the season oc- 
cured in the New York K of C 
meet as Williams won the hearts 
of the large crowd with its come- 
from-behind running. Hanan, run- 
ning his finest 440, passed off to 
second man Raynsford in first 
place, but Raynsford, pushed all 
over the track, fell to fourth place. 
Hagerman, with a perfect pass, 
moved up to third. Behr caught 
the leading runners in the last 
half lap, passing Boston Univer- 
sity, in first place, five yards from 
the finish. 



Tramway . . . 

have told the legislative commit- 
tee on state administration that 
the series of amendments to the 
original law setting up the Au- 
thority in 1953 did little or nothing 
to allay their fears that the lift 
would destroy the natural beauty 
of the mountain and at the same 
time might even restrict public 
access to the peak by permitting 
construction of toll roads. Dr. Jo- 
seph A. Wilk of Cheshire, repre- 
senting the Mt. Greylock Protec- 
tive association, described the vari- 
ous amendments as "nothing more 
than an ironclad insurance again- 
st any and all types of competl 
tion." He believes that the Reser 
vation commission should not be 
hampered by any bill which would 
limit the scope of its own work. 

Heading conservation groups re 
gistering opposition was William 
N. Nourse, professor emeritus of 
Tufts College and chairman of 
Newton Highlands Garden Club. 
He viewed the project as a "des- 
truction of the moimtain" and 
questioned the Authority's right 
to sell part of the area if it wished 
Nourse also said that authorities 
given such wide powers frequently 
have been known to exceed the 
promises made when they were 
established. Also opposed to the 
proposition are the Massachusetts 
Garden club federation and Con- 
servation council, Frank L. Boy 
den. Headmaster of Deerfield Aca- 
demy, and President Charles Cole 
of Amherst.

self are often contradictory and

Pierson showed that although 
the gospels of the New Testament 
are probably our closest view of 
Jesus, most were written long 
after he lived, and are more con- 
cerned with the interpretation of 
his life than his actual personali- 
ty and character. Such evidence 
as has survived, Pierson added, is 
subject to the individual interpre- 
tations of each generation. Pier- 
son illustrated this with a com- 
parison of the portrayals of Christ 
in the Sistine Chapel by Michael- 
angelo. and the painting "The 
Supper At Massa" by Rembrandt.

Pursuing the question of edu- 
cational variations between the 
sexes, the Student, in an infor- 
mal poll, asked several professors 
currently teaching at Smith and 
Mt. Holyoke in addition to their 
Amherst courses to comment on 
the distinctions between their 
male and female students. 

The following general conclu- 
sions were reached: 

— The girls are better looking 
and therefore from that angle 
were "more fun to teach" than 
the men. 

— The girls do their assign- 
ments more conscientiously. 

— The girls like to knit. 
Man's Reasoning Power 

A greater tendency to memorize 
was accredited to the girls while 
on the other hand the men had a 
tendency to try and reason things 
out. One professor at Smith re- 
marked that his classes have a fit 
if he mentions a word like loga- 
rithm. He added that he enjoys 
teaching boys more from an in- 
tellectual standpoint because they 
"follow a line of reasoning bet- 
ter". 

The faculty members felt that 
the gu-ls usually did their assign- 
ments, worked harder and in gen- 
eral did exactly what they were 
told to do. Another professor felt 
that the girls were more prepared 
to get the most out of their 
courses, and they come around for 
help more often. 

Knitting was found to be a 
widespread practice among the 
girls but none of the professors 
minded it. They all believed that 
it didn't detract from the girls' 
performance in class.

however, that a production this 
June at the annual Lincoln fes- 
tival in Salem, Illinois, will be the 
high point in the play's career. 

Mrs. McNett moved to Williams- 
town from Indiana in 1945. "Cra- 
dle of Glory" was written, but not 
polished, when she began her work 
for the College. She has been in- 
terested in Lincoln, and also in 
writing, all her life. She majored 
in economics at the University of 
Wisconsin, but since then has stu- 
died writing under several pro- 
fessionals in the midwest. Her 
first medium was the short story, 
but as of yet. she has not had any 
of her stories published. 

Versatile Authoress 

Ironically, she turned to dra- 
matic writing on the advice of one 
of her teachers, in order to im- 
prove her short story technique. 
Her first attempt in the new field 
was her success In "Cradle of 
Glory ". In all, she has written 
two plays, a novel, and countless 
short-stories. The problem that 
most often interests her is that 
of youth and growth. She flatly

The Lincoln Legend is well 
known to all, asserts Mrs. McNclt. 
Curiously enough, the public reul.

of Lincoln's youth, beside the fact 
that lie split a lot of rails. 

The death of his mother, Mie 
coming of 11 stepmother, and mi

some of the problems he had to

YOU'LL GET A BANG out of the Droodle above. The title is: Daredevil enjoy- 
ing better-tasting Lucky just before being shot from cannon. Luckies are 
going great guns everywhere. The reason for their booming popularity is 
simply this: Luckies give you better taste. They taste better, first of all, 
because Lucky Strike means fine tobacco. Then, that tobacco is toasted 
to taste better. " It's Toasted "— the famous Lucky Strike process— tones up 
Luckies' light, mild, good-tasting tobacco to make it taste even better . . . 
cleaner, fresher, smoother. Enjoy yourself when you smoke. Have a little 
fun. Light up the better-tasting cigarette . . . Lucky Strike.

Weekly 'Gourmet Table in Union 

D — 

Italian Chef Enjoy* Juniors Announce 

ChancetOJse Skill H^^^^p^^y Plans 



By Arne Carlson 

Saturday, Mar. 26 - "Serenely 
full, the epicure would say. Fate 
cannot have me. I have dined to- 
day." This seem.s to be the pre- 
vailing opinion of those who have 
been privileged enough to dine at 
tlie newly established Gourmet 
Table In the upperclass dininn 
lOom of Baxter Hull. Candlelight, 
revealing some of the more ele- 
gantly prepared morsels, makes 
this banquet table the meeting 
place of insatiable appetites. 

Last Wedne.sday night, the 
Italian chef. Ugo Schiappa. sent 
out a meal of Blue Points, French 
Endive Salad. Cauliflower Au Ora- 
tin. Asparagus Spears Vinagrette 
and melting cuts of larded ten- 
derloin of beef. The only feature 
lacking was a three piece string 
orchestra playing : "So This is The 
Kingdom of Heaven". As a per- 
fect climax. Bill Pratt, the baker, 
delivered a most decorous tray of 
Swan-shaped Cream Puffs .serv- 
ed along with Demi-Tasse. Unfor- 
tunately, due to added weight, mast 
gourmets had considerable diffi- 
culty in leaving the table. 

Conference Produces Idea 

A conference with Senor An- 
tonia de Lahiguera. Mr. Sidney 
Chisholm and the upperclass food 
committee resulted in this ban- 
quet-style Gourmet Table. The 
main purpose Is to prepare unique 
food for some of the connoisseur 
upperclassmen. Each week, eight 
students have the opportunity of 
signing up for a meal that will 
long be remembered. The chef, of 
course, is delighted at the oppor- 
tunity of making special u.se of 
liis cooking skills. His specialties 
are French and Italian dishes. 
Foreign delights like. Chicken 
Cacclatore, Julienne Potatoes. An- 
lipasto, Vichy Soisse. Breast of 
Cliicken on Ham, Broiled Sweet 
Breads have all been on past 
menus. 

Posse.sslng no less skill is the 
baker. Bill Pratt. Such rare treats 
as Baked Alaska. Biscuit Torlonl, 
Baba Au Rhum have been des- 
serts that have left the gourmets 
with the most satisfied feeling. 



Two Bands to Furnish 

College Dance Music 



Saturday, Mar. 26 - Plans for 
spring houseparties have been an- 
nounced by Tom Yankus. the gen- 
eral chairman of the junior class 
.social council. The May 6-8 week- 
end. spon.sorcd by the Class of 
1956. will feature an all .school 
semi-formal dance on Friday 
nlBht with two bands, class pic- 
nics on Saturday morning, sport 
events, and parties in the frater- 
nity houses on Saturday night. 

The two band.s have been con- 
tracted by Art Hyde '56. band 
chairman, in an attempt to com- 
promise the many criticLsms of 
the all school dances. Well-known 
Leroy Holmes, whose best hit is 
MGM's "The High and Mighty" 
will play in one room of the Stu- 
dent Union while the other band 
plays in another room. Tlie second 
band is a young west coast band 
led by Johnny Mical, noted as a 
band with "new sounds". Phin- 
ney's Favored Five will fill in 
while each band has ILs inter- 
mission. 

Saturday will start with cla.s.s 
picnics at Cole Field at 10:30 a.m. 
The combined frosh-sophomore 
classes and junior-senior classes 
will give the picnics and supply 
beer for them. The hou.ses and 
Student Union will provide the 
sandwiches. Afternoon cocktail 
parties and beer parties at the 
houses on Saturday will be sup- 
plemented by either a jazz con- 
cert or singing concert in Chapin 
Hall.

45.4 % of Alumni 
Give to Colleges 



Debaters Capture 
Siena Tournament 



Synnott Paces Ephs 
Over Five Teams 



Company Questionnaire 
Says Ties to Schools 
Influence Donations 



Saturday, Mar. 26 - A recent 
survey of college graduates to de- 
termine just how much and how 
often alumni contribute finan- 
cially to their alma maters showed 
that just under half of those poll- 
ed had given money to their for- 
mer colleges. The survey was taken 
by General Electric. 

45.4* of those interviewed gave 
an average of two gifts totaling 
$17.85 over the two year period j 
from 1952 to 1954. The number of 
tho.se giving and the amount that 
they gave rose somewhat from 
1952 to 1954. The most important 
influencing factor in determining 
whether or not contributions were 
made seemed to be the presence 
or absence of Alumni magazines 
and continuous gift campaigns. 
The survey also indicated that a 
large percentage of the gifts were 
.solicited, not volunteered, and that 
most colleges and universities had 
gift programs set up. 

The company reported that out 
of five thousand employes asked. 
less than half a dozen replied 
"none of your business" or ex- 
pressed irritation at being asked. 
The questionnaires stated that 
neither the person replying nor 
the college he attended should be 
identified. Furthermore, General 
Electric has agreed to match any 
employe's donation to his school 
rp to $1,000. 



Pre -Med Students 
Start New Group 



Saturday. Mar. 26 - A new or- 
ganization composed of pre-med- 
ical students attending Williams 
will hold Its first meeting in the 
Rathskellar of the Student Union 
Monday evening. March 28 at 
7:30. The organization has been 
formed to help Williams students 
who are interested in graduate me- 
dical school to understand the re- 
quirements and processes for get- 
ting Into a medical school. 

A panel of four seniors will 
open the first meeting with a dis- 
cussion of varying aspects of ap- 
lilylng to medical schools. They 
will answer any questions from the 
audience that they can. Dr. Mat- 
thews, head of the Biology De- 
partment, and Williams pre-medi- 
ral advisor will act as moderator. 

The new organization, as yet 
unnamed, was founded by Jim 
Colberg 'bb. Herb Kinds '55, and 
John DuBols '55. They have an- 
nounced that the club's meetings 
will be open for any Interested 
students. Since all the speakers 
at the Monday night's meeting 
have toured most of the accredited 
medical schools in the east, the 
meeting will provide an excellent 
opportunity for other pre-meds 
who are not acquainted with the 
fKhools or their requirements to 
Ret a candid, "students-eye" view 
of them. If sufficient interest Is 
shown, the club Is planning to 
present other speakers and films 
ihroughout the year.

nament, sponsored by the Siena 
College Gavel Club. Williams was 
the tournament winner, while in- 
dividual mention went to Fresh- 
men Dave Phillips and Tom Syn- 
nott, both of whom debated in the

tournament. 

In winning the Rev. Vincent De- 
vine Memorial Trophy, Williams 
bested Lemoyne College, Rens- 
salaer Polytechnic Institute, Uni-

The Williams team consisted of 
Ed McCarthy '56, first negative, 
Synnott. second negative, Phil- 
lips, first affirmative, and Bob 
Zeuner '55, second affirmative. The

negative of each college debating 
the other team once. Williams 
won six of its eight debates, with 
Union and Lemoyne winning five. 

At the end of these round robin 
debates, the speakers were rated, 
the best speakers from each cate- 
gory qualifying for the Debate of

The ,\(lains Memorial Tlu-atrc's production of the Aiitinone 
of Sophoclfs im Tluusdav. Marcii 24tli mulcr the direction of David 
{; Brvaiit revived aiiaiii for its audience tlie power of the ancient 
Greek drama. I'sinf;; the playahle. poetic Diidlov Fitts-Robert Fitts- 
iierald translation, the iiroduction achieved, at its climax, a lieiijht 
of eniotioiuil impact that did credit to translators, director, and 
east, not to nieiition the .Attic hard liimsell. 

The story is familiar. .Aiilinone, a Thelian princess, violates the 
dictum of her uncle, the ruler Creoii, and l)uries her l)rother, Poly- 
neiees who, owing to alleged traitorous acti\itv, lias been deemed 
fit only as a "feast foi- carrion birds". When C;reon unfeelinglv sen- 
tences Antigone to die for her act. Haimon, Oeon's .son and Antig- 
one's promised liusband. rebels against his father's harshness and 
determines to die with ,\ntigonc. The errors of Cieon's wav are di- 
vulged tardilv i)v his favorite seer, and CIreon's pardons reach onlv 
the suiciili'-stopped ears of both his son and niece. Miserable. Oeon 
enx'iges as an object lesson that "no iiride on earth is free of the 
curse of heaven. " 

The impact of tlie first act is somewhat lessened bv a modern 
teiidenev to have iiiainlv .sanitary considerations for inibiiri<Hl hu- 
man reinaiiis a little Fast of Thebes. Anv effoit to reprodnce the 
Greek reaction of moral and religious horror would necessarily be 
o'uite artificial. The human relationships, however, on which the 
second act niaiiilv relv are tellingly drawn and presented. 

Sadiv for the production, the first act was played with unre- 
lieved intensity — often sbonled. The second act, however, paid off 
in full anv debt the first had incurred. Suddenlv restraint entered 
the arena and. with it. credihilitv. The chorus seemed to repent its 
previous' <iilatory lendeucies. and the beautifullv played climax 
redeemed the |)artiallv lost beginning. The jirodnetioii was a suc- 
cess. 

See Page 4, Col. 5 



After the last round a banquet 
was held Saturday night for all 
the participants in the tourney. 
Before a large crowd the four top 
debaters, Windhouser, and Phil- 
lips for the afflimative, and Slmeo 
Gallo of Union and Synnott tor 
the negative, argued the same topic 
at eight that evening in the De- 
bate of Champions In which Syn- 
nott was named the outstanding 
debater.

Saturday, Mar. 26 - Sixteen po- 
litical science, economics, and his- 
tory and literature majors are 
traveling to Washington April 4-6 
to see "government in action". 
Expenses for the trip are covered

to be settled, a tentative agenda | 
features a talk with a Supreme 
Court Justice regarding the re- 
cent segregation findings. Faculty 1 
advisor Prof. William Brubeck of 
the Political Science department, 
who will accompany the group, 
also expects to attend a congres- 
sional committee hearing and to 
tour the President's office. 

Congressman John Heselton 
from western Mass. has been help- 
ful In making arrangements to 
meet other high ranking officials: 
as on previous trips. Army Chief 
of Staff Rldgeway. Deputy Secre- 
tary of Defense Anderson, Secre- 
tary of the Treasury Humpherys, 
and Press Secretary Haggerty will 
be Interviewed. If time permits. 
It is planned to visit the Atomic 
Energy Commission and the Jus- 
tice Department. 



1)1/ Joe Hiclidrdsdii '57 
Saturday, .March ,5 - Speaking at aluniui dinners in Boston and 
Pliiladel|)liia on Wednesday and Thursday, President Baxter out- 
lined Williams' position concerning one of the biggest and most 
pressing educational |)roblems of the day; How do the nation's col- 
leges and uiii\ersities plan to meet the drastic increase iu enroll- 
ments expected in the n<'.\t lew vears':* 

Williams, indicated Pres. Baxter, intends to stand pat, as do her 
Little Three partners, .Amherst and Wesleyan. .All three are of such 
^Oa size at the present time that, ac- 
cording to Pres. Baxter, "they can- 
not grow bigger without losing the 
many peculiar advantages which 
they now possess as small col- 
leges". 

Overall College Rise 
"The numbers problem is the 
central problem of education at 
the moment", stated Dr. Bax- 
ter. "Due to the greatly Increased 
birth rate starting with World 
War II the college population will 
go up 50V or more during the 
next ten or eleven years." 

Along with the problem of sim- 
ply providing space for the expect- 
ed influx of students is the acute 
question of teachers. "There is 
a steady attrition of professors," 
the President pointed out, "due to 
age, the shift of teachers to bet- 
ter-paying professions," and other 
factors; and the number of young 
graduates going into teaching is 
already failing to meet the de- 
mand. 

Dr. Baxter revealed that the 
whole question of Increased en- 
rollment was the central theme at 
the meeting of the American 
Council of Education last Octo- 
ber. "The guts of the problem Is 
this", he said: "What effect Is 
the Increase going to have on the 
balance between public and pri- 
vate college education?" 

Graduate Percentage to Shift 
"Roughly half of the college de- 
grees in recent years have been 
conferred by private institutions." 
pointed out Dr. Baxter. "The pro- 
portion can be expected to drop 
to 305 or less in coming years. 

In other words, state and mu- 
nicipal colleges and universities 
can be expected to take up most 
of the slack. They will continue 
to grow rapidly, as may the Ca- 
tholic schools, whereas in the 
opinion of most private admin- 
istrators the independent schools 
will expand much more slowly. 
Financial Squeeze 
One big reason for this. Pres. 
Baxter made clear. Is the tar 
tighter financial setup of the in- 
dependent Institutions. which 
must raise their funds mainly 
throi:gh endowments rather than 
by government or church appro- 
priations. (According to the New 
York Times 40-50'/ of the inde- 
pendent liberal arts institutions 
are currently operating at a de- 
ficit i. 

Further clarifying Williams' 
stand on the problem, he called 
attention to "the big difference 
between the small colleges and 
the larger private institutions 
such as Yale, Princeton and Dart- 
mouth, which have already passed 
the small' limit." These would

William Cole. 

"The Boy with a Cart" by Chris- 
topher Fi-y. featuring a cast of 
faculty members, wives, and stu- 
dents, will be presented at the 
regular time of 7:30. Other than 
the regular organ processional and 
recessional, the entire service will 
consist of the play. Rev. Cole ad- 
vised students to arrive early to 
insure obtaining suitable seats for 
the presentation. 

Diiected by Don Goodyear '56, 
the play will Include in Its cast 
Professor Nelson Bushnell of the 
English department, Mrs. Carl 
Hoar, Mrs. William Martin. Mrs. 
Manly Johnson, and Mrs. Wil- 
liam Cole. Students in the drama

SAC Elects Flynt 
Faculty Delegate 

Council Makes Stompers 
Member Organization 



Monday, Mar. 21 - The first 
meeting of the new Student Ac- 
tivities Council was held this af- 
ternoon In Baxter Hall with Pre- 
sident Chip Mann '56 presiding. 
Director of Student Aid Henry 
Flynt was reelected unanimously 
as the faculty representative to 
the organization. 

The Spring Street Stompers 
were officially accepted under the 
category of profit-distributing 
member. Hereafter 5f of the Stom- 
pers' profits over a specified base 
will be paid equally to the SAC 
and a sinking fund. Previously 
they had been Independent. 

Yacht Club 

Dave Mead '56 noted that the 
Yacht Club feels that it is not 
getting sufficient traveling ex- 
penses while representing the col- 
lege. The matter was sent to the 
SAC Executive Committee for 
consideration. 

At the next meeting of the SAC 
on April 18 action will probably 
be taken to recognize formally 
the merger of the Scout Frater- 
nity and the WOC. 



Boys' Club to Begin 

'55 Rummage Sale 



Saturday. Mar. 26 - The Wil- 
liamstown Boys' Club announc- 
ed this week that it will hold 
a rummage sale soon, and dis- 
tribute boxes around the dor- 
mitories to collect items for the 
sale. Beginning today boxes will 
be placed in the dorms and will 
remain there until the sale, to 
be held at the Boys' Club be- 
ginning at 9:00 a.m. on Satur- 
day, April 23. 

It is hoped that the proceeds 
of the sale will equal the goal 
of $1,000 which is very much 
needed to pay the salary of a 
club counselor this summer, to 
begin a new basketball program, 
and to renovate Boys' Club 
equipment and furnishings in 
general. Student support is es- 
sential to make the program a 
success. Tony Furgueson '57, is 
in charge of the organization 
of the program.

The Quota System 



Un(|uestionab]y tlie most important single question concerning 
the general problem oi formulating rushing procedures and rules is 
how large should the quotas be. Involving both the chances for tot- 
al membership as well as the possibility that some houses on cain- 
pus may have to fold, the quota systein, if hastily and poorly chosen, 
will obviously have very detrimental effects. 

The general idea behind higher quotas is that in this way the 
chances tor total membership become better. Many students. How- 
ever, wish to lower the quotas and thereby decrease the stratifica- 
tion of the fraternities and promote greater equality between the 
fifteen houses on campus. Obviously, if any fraternity is compelled 
to fold, the chances for ever gaining total membership will be great- 
ly reduced. Strengthening all fraternities is, therefore, the neces- 
sary prerequisite of any plan for total membership. 

Last September, WiUiams came closer to having everyone join 
a fraternity than ever before in its history. Now, however, fearing 
that under the present system one or more fraternities may fold, 
many of the leaders on campus want to lower the quotas drastically. 
The lower the quotas get, however, the less chance there will be 
of all sophomores belonging to fraternities. Since total membership 
in principle will never come at Williams until the houses are willing 
to accept it, the only chance that next year all sophs may be pledgecl 
is if the quotas remain high. 

Unfortunately, however, drese two important aims, dependent 
on each other, necessitate entirely different approaches concerning 
the quota system. Being in a time of change at Williams, we must 
move cautiously and not rashly jump to extreme decisions. There 
can be no doubt that the first consideration in setting next year's 
quotas must be to ensure the preservation and equalization of all 
the fraternities. 

To do this, we must lower the quotas from the higii ones that 
were in effect last year; some of the radical suggestions that have 
been proposed should be discarded, however, in light of the fact 
that with each reduction we move further from the voluntary total 
membership that was almost attained last year. If the College Coun- 
cil and the Social Council will get together and sincerely consider 
both aspects, then a compromise solution can be reached. By mov- 
ing carefully, if we reduce the quotas by one we will not be moving 
too far from total membership and yet the fraternities will still be 
somewhat strengthened. By refusing to compromise, some campus 
leaders are working for only half of the dual goal that the new quota 
system should fulfill.

To Seduce Southbound Students 



I)!/ Joe lUclidrdsoii '57 

Florida is Imiciiig for tiie Imrriiaiie; Koit Lauderdale is bat- 
tening down its hatches as once again the thoughts of college stuil- 
ents and the no.scs of myriad automobiles turn with almost one ac- 
cord toward the sunny southlaml. Williams students who feel that 
they are hollow men in a New Kngland Wasteland dream fitfully 
at night of the Pronii.sed Land to wiiicli thev will soon .set out, be- 
lieving as fervently as Ponce de Loon that tlicre they will find the 
fountain of youth. 

As in the last lew years a large and enthusiastic contingent — 
roughly estimated at about a (jnarter of the college population — 
will inigiate south from Billvillc to dissipate Spring Vacation in 
casual style on the beaches and in the bars of America's favorite 
resortland.

Sun, Sirens Lure Students 

Many theories have been advanced as to the mystic spell that 
Florida exerts on the weary college student. Florida means mauv 
things to the average scholar crushed uiulci- the whei'Is of higher 
education. Warm weather, sun, sand and rela.xatioii in an informal 
atmos|5liere are all ])art of the jiicture. Winsome wenches crowding 
the landscape looking for a good time are one of the strongest hues; 
and there are many other attractions. 

Bill Kerr, president of the Travel Bureau, announces that about 
a dozen vacationers arc flying down, at the minimum round-trip 
cost of $95, but the most poijiilar mode of transportation is hv car. 
Besides costing only about $20 per person with several boys chip- 
ping in, a car provides a handy means of bombing around from 
place to ])lace once you get there. It takes about thirty three hours 
of steady driving to reach Fort Lauderdale, usually the center of 
activity, and though you're pretty beat on arriving you can count 
on a (]uick recovery.

turf of fair Williamstown froze like a brick. A recent hint of spnni; 
(now lost in a renewal of wintry blasts) rejuvenated diese frozen 
clods, and the snow nu'lted into calm pools of sliiny muck. Which 
brings ns to the ijoint of this story. 

Perhaps you lia\ i' observed what the relentless slogging of Mar- 
ine boots tio to the little muck-covered grass lelt. At any rate, a few 
nature lovers did, and set about devising subtle remedies. The first 
solution was a sign, saying "lvee|) off the Cliass Please". Then canic 
"Stav the hell off". To no avail — soon the gronnd took on all the 
immediate aspects of a battlefield. 

As a result yon may have also noticed a pint-sized Maginoi 
Line bordering the Hoxsey Street etlge of the ('hi Psi lawn, tin. 
.scene of a chewed-up trail leading to imknown destinations Inrthcr 
up Fraternity How. For about 2.5 varils two long strands of harhcij 
wire are drape<l on well-snnken posts to keep the Marines off the 
Chi Psi lawn. CJleaming unobtrusively in the smoj^, thesis wickcj 
fortifications were a last ri'sort. 

To tiate these precautions ha\i' proven successful, despite 
threats that (.'hi Psi will awake one morning to find their haiuji. 
work .strewn in neat six inch pieces on choice jiortioiis of their law n. 
Not a soul has slashed his leg, or even dared an assault upon the di'. 
lenses. Aa a result, no .sentries have been posted, no trenches dnii, 
and no annnnnition has been purchased. Moreover, the 200 soils 
kept ready in eager anticipation have not vet been necessary. 

This is not to say that complaints by those too lazy to folhiw 
the school paths have not been lodged. Despite the best intentions 
of the nature lovers responsible for this eontributioii, a few die. 
hards have griped that such industrialized iiinovation.s to the |)aiui. 
rama of Fraternity Kow detract from rather than add to the oe.ui- 
ties of nature. Others suggest a path be built through the Chi Psi 
House itseh, the idea being that rugs don't dent. 

,\t any rate, the fortifications seem here to stay. II summer e\ it 
graces the Billvillc tundra, it may well he that this new addition 
inav be removed, and Marine boots inav trod unmolested.

with 1() and 12.5 points, respectively. 



The winning Dekes took firsts 
in the 150 yard medley relay to 
start the meet, as the team of 
John Starkweather, Russ Salmon 
and Tim Hanan splashed to vic- 
tory over the Zetes and Phi Delts 
in the time of 1:28.9. Jim McLamb 
of Chi Psi won the 200 yard free- 
style in 2:30.6 with Jack Barker 
of the Dekes and Alex Mackenzie 
of Sigma Phi in the second and 
third positions. 

Dekes Take Backstroke, 200 Relay 

First in the 50 yard freestyle 
went to Chi Psi Brower Merriam 
in the lime of 26.1 with Eric Dal- 
berg of the Saints and frosh Fred 
Parsons taking second and third. 
AD. Howie Patterson won the div-

Three Winter Teams 
Elect New Captains 



Squads Choose Koster, 
Hanan, Clark Leaders 



Salui-day, Mar. 26 - In recent 
elections, Bob Koster, Pete Clark 
and Tim Hanan were chosen to 
lead the 1955-56 wrestling, ski- 
ing and winter track squads. 

Posting an undefeated wrestl- 
ing season in the 147 pound class, 
Koster also captured first place 
honors in the New Englands. His 
outstanding record was one of the 
foremost reasons for the 5-2 sea- 
.son of Coach Ed Bullock's matmen, 
and his close decision over Joe 
Mulligen in the New Englands was 
one of the highlights of the wrestl- 
ing .season. 

Helping to regain the Class A 
lating of the Williams Ski team, 
Clark proved himself a tine skier 
throughout the season, and should 
be the best the Ephmen have next 
year. Running the first leg for 
the Winter Relay team throughout 
the season, Hanan was always 
good, and his choice for captain 
wa.sn'l .surprising. His fine show- 
ing in the N.Y. Knights of Col- 
umbus meet was one of the main 
reasons for the Williams victory. 



Purple Trackmen 
Prepare for Trip 

Sophs Boost Hopes 
For Good Season 



Saturday, Mar. 26 - Hoping to 
better last year's mediocre record. 
Coach Tony Plansky's varsity 
track team has entered serious 
practice prior to its spring trip. 
Although It is still too early to 
determine the team's overall 
strength, the Ephs would appear 
to be stronger than last year in 
the running events, but may be 
weaker in the field events. 

It seems fairly certain that sev- 
eral sophomores from last year's 
undefeated freshman crew are the 
key to the team's success or fail- 
ure. Last year's varsity squad sore- 
ly lacked depth. If the highly 
touted sophomores live up to their 
expectations, they, along with cap- 
tain Bob Behr and several other 
returning varsitymen, will provide 
not only the outstanding indivi- 
duals but also the depth needed 
for a successful track season. 

Behr Bright Spot 

Behr is, undoubtedly, the bright- 
est spot on the team. He runs the 
100, 200, and the anchor leg of 
the mile relay. Last season he set 
the school record in the 220 with 
21.3 and has indicated that this 
year he will attempt to break the 
Williams 440 record. Behr, along 
with Andy Smith, Dave White, and 
Bill Scoble should be very strong 
in the sprints and will comprise 
an 880 yard relay team which 
could conceivably be one of the 
best in the East. 

In addition to Scoble and Smith, 
other sophomores who are being 
counted on heavily include John 
Moxley, Walter Riley, and John 
Pritchard whose principal events 
are the hurdles, pole vault and

Varsity Lacrosse Squad Awaits 
Swing Through Southern States 

Weather Curtails Outoor Drills; 
Powerful Midfield Paces Ephmen 

b\i Stu Auerbach 
Saturday, March 26 - The strong point of the still unsettled 
' Williams varsity lacrosse team will be the midfield, which has 
enoiij^h dejith to field two strong lines, coach Ralph Townsend said 
today. But Townsend coiddn't go further than to name the six men 
I that will make up the two midtields. It is still too early to tell the 
makeup of the fii'st and second lines. 

Positions on the startin}^ team are so wide open that the coach 
still doesn't know who will make the spring trip. "The only men 
I I'm sure about are the manager and the coach," Townsend said. 
"I'm not even sure about the captain (Dick Siegrist)," he added. 
"If his wife doesn't have her baby before the trip, he won't go." 

The weather has greatly hampered the team's piactieing. Al- 
1 though outdoor workouts were scheduled for this week on the AMT 
l|5arking lot, unseasonable weather has forced the scjuad to work 

out in the gym. The lack of proper 

workouts keeps Townsend

Spring is just aroimd the corner ( despite the inclement weather 
of the past week), and the various Williams spring athletic teams 
have begin) to work out prior to their southern trips. Before the at- 
tention of Ejibnien turns entirely to warm weather sports, however, 
it should be brought to mind once more that this winter has been 
one of the best ever for athletics here at Williams. And as is always

If you've watched them on

Constant practice is the answer, of course, but getting the best 
from your equipment is just as important, too. 

That's where Spalding top-flite' clubs have the edge. 
They have more lo offer in precision balance that gives an 
ahsnliilely uniform swing-feel with every club in the matched set. 

That's the secret of Spalding synch ro-dyned® clubs. 
And, it will pay off for you from the first round. You'll make 
the same shots with new uniformity. The perfect balance of 
these clubs lets you swing through the ball with confidence.

determining the ability of his men 
in order to cut down his choices 
for the trip. 

Midfield Prospects 

This year's midfield will be 
stronger than last years, with the 
competition for the first two lines 
nip and tuck between four veter- 
ans, a sophomore, and speedy Tim 
Hanan from the track team. Lead- 
ing the pack are Jim Edgar, Bob 
Spaeth, Jack Lesher and Don My- 
ers — all experienced men from 
last year's squad. Hanan, captain 
elect of the winter track team, has 
decided to go out for lacross this 
year. His speed and shifty running 
should be a great help to the 
team. Soph Tony Brockleman also 
should see action. 

The attack, a big problem last 
year, should be better this spring, 
but Townsend still doesn't know 
"what the solution is going to be" 
for his front line woes. However, 
he does have a nucleus of four 
lettermen to lead the attackmen. 
Siegrist is one sure starter and 
Bob Koster, Hill Gans, and Al 
Foehl will fight it out with sopho- 
mores for the other berths. 

Goal Problem Spot 

The big hole to be filled is In 
the goal. Rod Stark, who made 
first string all-New England last 
year, has graduated. Fighting for 
his position are veteran Buster 
Smith and sophs Mike Glick and 
Tom Owen. The strength of the 
defense will rest on the play of 
veterans Don O'Brien and Dan 
Berman and several promising so- 
phomores. Junior John Reeves 
who progressed fast last season, 
should also see action. 

The team plays its first game 
in the southern trip on April 4 
against the University of Balti- 
more, one of the powerhouses of 
intercollegiate lacrosse. They then 
continue their swing southward, 
playing North Carolina, Duke and 
Maryland.

By the time Williams bursts 
upon the scene the female situa- 
tion has begun to decline. Most 
of the eastern women's colleges 
have the unfortunate habit of 
scheduling their vacations earlier 
than we do. However, the ratio is 
still very favorable. Many of the 
midwest schools are well repre- 
sented, and Miami University is 
but one of several rewarding 
sources of local talent. 

For those few of us whom sex 
and sunshine are not sufficient 
in themselves, there are other 
sources of entertainment. Water 
skiing and fishing are deservedly 
popular. Dog races near Port Lau- 
derdale and fast-growing jai alai 
provide easy ways to lose your 
shirt I here again it helps to be 21) 
as do the horse races at such fa- 
mous tracks as Gulfstream Park. 
Another, surer way to hit the 
southland with a minimum of ex- 
pense is to be on one of the four 
athletic teams — baseball, ten- 
nis, lacrosse and golf — that are 
planning tours below the Mason- 
Dixon Line, 

For the resort-minded who shun 
Florida there are other possibili- 
ties. Six of seven will take advan- 
tage of the Travel Bureau's $155 
package deal to Bermuda, which 
includes plane, hotel for ten days, 
and brunch. Lower prices will 
help keep extra spending down, 
and the great preponderance of 
girls over boys is the chief of many 
other attractions, most of them 
unable to be found elsewhere. 

A few diehards who are not yet 
thoroughly disgusted with wintry 
weather will head towards various 
ski resorts. Some plan to hit the 
slopes at Mont Tremblant, and 
several fanatics are going all the 
way out to Aspen. Though they 
may argue about what's the best 
place to spend vacation most rest- 
less students will agree that the 
best place not to spend it is Wil- 
Uamstown.

Paterson '55, and Marian Hol- 
brook of Smith. 

Nollner Enthusiastic 

When asked to comment on the 
concert tor the RECORD, Mr, 
Nollner remarked, "An unusually 
interesting program, one of the 
finest women's singing groups in 
the country, one of the most well- 
known visiting conductors. Why 
leave town?" 

The combined glee clubs also 
will perform several selections 
from the opera "Dido and Aeneas" 
by Henry Purcell. England's great- 
est composer. The selections to be 
sung are among the most light- 
hearted in the opera, including 
a sailors' chorus and the chorus of 
a hunting party driven back to 
town by sudden rain. 

Smith's Selections 
The first half of the program 
will be sung primarily by the 
Smith College Glee Club. Among 
their selections are the romantic 
and melodious "To Music" by the 
19th Century French composer 
Emmanuel Chabrier. In addition, 
the Smith group will perform the 
"Short Communion Service" for 
treble voices by the 16th Century 
English composer William Byrd; 
two folksong settings by the 20th 
Century composer Zoltan Kodaly; 
and will open the concert with 
"Awake the Ti'umpet's Lofty 
Sound" by George Frederick Han- 
del. 

Two selections by the Williams 
College Glee Club will conclude 
the first halt of the concert. The 
first is "Two Short Prayers of 
Saint Francis of Assisi," set to 
music by the eminent modern 
French composer Francis Poulenc, 
who has appeared in a conceit In 
Berkshire county. The second is 
the famous "Coronation Scene" 
from the opera "Boris Gudounov" 
by the Russian composer Modest 
Moussorgsky. 

Small groups from the two Glee 
Clubs, specially selected for this 
performance, will combine to of- 
fer "Four Chansons". 



Saturday, Mar. 26 - Williams 
College is one of more than 125 
colleges and Universities through- 
out the United States which have 
entered in the 1955 National In- 
tercollegiate Bridge Tournament. 
All play for the tournament will 
be carried on by mail, and will be 
conducted on the Individual cam- 
puses in a single session. 

The hands played will be re- 
turned to Committee headquarters 
at Texas A. & M. College, where 
they will be scored by Geoffrey 
Mott-Smith, author and contract 
bridge authority, who will deter- 
mine campus, regional, and na- 
tional winners. 

Frizes 

The prizes for the tournament 
will include trophy cups for the 
colleges winning the national 
titles, one cup to the college scor- 
ing the highest on the East- West 
hands, and one cup to the college 
of the pair winning the North- 
South hands. Each of the four in- 
dividual national winners will re- 
ceive a smaller cup for his per- 
manent possession. 

Each college competing in the 
tournament for the first time in 
1955 will be presented with a 
plaque designed to bear the names 
of the four individual campus 
champions. In addition, each of 
these winners will receive a cer- 
tificate suitable for framing. 

Last year, more than 5,000 stu- 
dents in forty-five states partici- 
pated in the tournament. Teams 
representing Dartmouth and Pur- 
due won the national champion- 
ship titles and trophy cups. Head- 
ing the Williams team this year 
will be Frank Rosenbach '55.

have less to lose by expanding 
than the true small colleges. 
Small college expansion 

Williams, by swelling its en- 
rollment, would lose many ol the 
aspects of college life which the 
administration thinks it most 
important to preserve, such as 
small classes, close faculty-stu- 
dent ties, and a tight-knit stu- 
dent body. Speaking for the ad- 
ministration, Dr. Baxter noted, 
"We think we can make a more 
valuable contribution by improv- 
ing the job we do for a thousand 
students than by increasing num- 
bers." 

Some small colleges, such as 
Hamilton and Coe, are going a- 
head with expansion plans. How- 
ever, they are at present smaller 
than Williams and perhaps can 
better afford growth. But many 
administrators of small private 
institutions are taking the same 
stand as President Baxter echo- 
ing the sentiment of President 
White of Haverford that their 
schools "may be of greater ser- 
vice in the long run by not ex- 
panding."

Sam Fortenbaugli and Jim Hcikii 
will run the mile, while Ted < >viau 
and "Hots" Ports will be in tlif 
two mile race. 

This year lor the first timi', a 
Williams track team will make 
a Southern trip. The Plansk.vmen 
are scheduled to oppose the Uni- 
versity of Richmond, V.P.I,, und 
Davidson in informal meets 

As for the prospect of winnine 
the Little Three championship, 
it appears that Wesleyan, last 
year's victor, is again fairly strong 
and presents the main obstacle to 
the Ephmen. Williams, neverthe- 
less, has a good chance to defeat 
them and capture the Little Three 
crown. In this endeavor, however, 
as througliout the entire season, 
much will depend on the perform- 
ance of the sophomores.

WILLIAMS COLLEGE 





WEDNESDAY, MARCH 30, 1955 



PRICE 10 CENTS 



Wednesday, Mar. 30 - The Fac- 
ulty Committee on Admissions Is 
busily processing nearly 1300 ap- 
plications In an attempt to select 
a IiIbIi calibre class for entrance 
next September. The committee, 
headed by Director of Admissions 
Fred Copeland, Includes David M. 
Pynchon. assistant director, Pro- 
fes.sois C. Frederick Rudolph and 
Roy Lamson, Jr. 

During the spring term, the 
committee holds daily review ses- 
sions at which time every can- 
didate Is discussed. Previously the 
members have gone over each ap- 
plication individually. Tire most 
detailed processing, however, is 
done by Copeland and Pynchon 
and their recommendations are 
usually accepted by the rest of 
the group. The main function of 
the committee In the review ses- 
.sions Is to decide on the status of 
the more dubious cases and to set 
up a waiting list. 

Wating Ust Set Up 

It is usually very difficult to 
separate the last ten or fifteen 
that are accepted and those that 
arc put on "reserve". Tlie com- 
mittee notifies these men at the 
proper time as to their standing 
and advises them to malte other 
plans If they have the opportuni- 
ty. In the past several years about 
25 of these on the waiting list 
have eventually been accepted. 

Although the actual size of the 
class is determined by the Board 
of Trustees, the committee uses 
its own discretion on the number 
of acceptances to make In order 
to fill a quota of about 2''5. 

40 Percent Shrinkage 

As a rule of thumb, a 40 per- 
cent shrinkage of final accept- 
iinces is expected. It has become 
increasingly hard on the part of 
the committee to make a very ac- 
curate judgment on an applicant's 
desired destination. This is be- 
cause college preference is no 
longer asked on the college board 
exam. Copeland said, however, that 
after talking with hundreds of 
pre-freshmen he Is able to tell 
the ones that are really eager to 
attend Williams. 

The Faculty Admission Com- 
mittees' prime objective in filling 
its quota is to choose those men 
who have high scholarship ability 
and meet the standards set by the 
faculty. With this requirement in 
mind, their aim is to get a well- 
balanced class, economically, geo- 
Rraphically and socially.

Frosh Council Plans 
Rathskellar Changes 

Gargoyle to Familiarize 
Freshmen on Rushing 



Wednesday, Mar. 30 - Two new 
plaas to improve the deferred 
rushing program were introduced 
and adopted at a meeting of the 
Freshman Council last Wednesday. 
Unlike most ideas on ru.shing, these 
plans came as quite a surprise. 

Tlie first innovation is a Rath- 
skellar Committee, which is com- 
posed of three members of the 
Freshman Council, Jim Bowers 
'58. Tom Connolly '58, and Carl 
Vogt '58. This committee is set up 
to meet the constant complaint 
that the Student Union is not ade- 
quate for social functions. 
Appropriate $25,000 

In January, the Trustees decid- 
ed not to junk deferred rushing 
because they believed that the 
present system can be made to 
work. One of their first steps was 
to appropriate $25,000 to remodel 
the Rathskellar. This $25,000 is 
designed to buy for the frosh en- 
tertainment facilities comparable 
to those of the fraternities. 

While the new committee has 
not come to any conclusions, sev- 
eral schemes are already in the 
wind. One idea is to build booths 
along the walls, on the order of 
some night clubs. Another is to 
construct a bar along one wall. 
Several other thoughts put for- 
ward are covering up the pipes in 
the celUng and indirect lighting.

Chapel Produces 
Fry Miracle Play 

Sowles '57 Enacts 
'Boy With A Cart' 

Wednesday, Mar. 30 - A cast 
of faculty members, wives, and 
students presented the Christo- 
pher Fry drama, 'The Boy With 
A Cart", at the weekly chapel ser- 
vice in Thompson Memorial Cha- 
pel Sunday evening. Other than 
the regular organ processional and 
recessional, the entire service con- 
sisted of the play. 

Written with the conventions of 
the miracle-play, the presentation 
featured Jim Sowles '57 In the title 
role of Cuthman, the "Boy". A 
Chorus, composed of Jurgen Ring- 
er '55, Mrs. Manley Johnson and 
Fred Lippincott '56, interpreted 
the story which taught the lesson 
of faith prevailing over scepticism. 
Mrs. Carl Hoar played Cuthman's 
aged mother, while Mrs. William 
Martin and Mrs. William G. Cole 
portrayed the sceptical neighbors. 
Others in the cast included Prof. 
Nelson Bushnell of the English 
Department, John Wycoff '56 and 
Bill Bushley '58. 

The drama was produced and 
directed by Don Goodyear '56. 
Fry originally wrote the play in 
1937 for the occasion of a village 
festival, and it has since become to 
be described as a kind of poetic 
"tableau vivant" in which the 
meaning and beauty of the drama 
are chiefly discoverable in its dic- 
tion rather than the character and 
plot. 



Prof. MacFadyen Cites Evolution 
Of Williamstown Area in Lecture 



Thursday, Mar. 24 - Before an 
audience composed almost en- 
tirely of faculty members and 
their wives. Instructor John Mac- 
Fadyen gave the last in the series 
of Thursday lectures in the Bi- 
ology lab today. Mr. MacFadyen's 
topic was "A Worm's Eye View of 
New England". 

Projecting himself "into the po- 
sition of a worm", Mr. MacFad- 
yen traced with slides and narra- 
tive the geological evolution of the 
Williamstown area. He noted that 
this area, until quite recently, has 
been the exclusive domain of Wil- 
liams geologists. 

Time Concept 

Mr. MacFadyen stressed as par- 
ticularly Important to the under- 
standing of geology the develop- 
ment of a time concept. "A mil- 
lion years is a very short time to 
geologists," he said. "If the Em- 
pire State building represented 
geologic time, the span of man 
would equal a nickel in thickness, 
and recorded history would equal 
the thickness of a piece of tissue 
paper." 

According to Mr. MacFadyen.j 

geologLsts in Africa have found k 

rock which Is over three billion. 

three-hundred million years old. 

150.000,000 Years 

For the purposes of his lecture. 
Mr. MacFadyen "confined" him- 
self to a "mere 150.000,000 years 
of geological development," name- 
ly the Cambrian and Ordovlclan

periods. The Ordovlclan period 
ended 350.000.000 years ago. 

During the Cambrian period the 
New England area was submerged 
in a shallow sea. Gradually an 
elongated range of mountains 
formed stretching from southern 
Canada to 'Virginia. At that time 
It was possible to "take a boat 
from Williamstown to San Fran- 
cisco". 

By the end of the Ordovlclan 
period, the water had receded and 
the area assumed the beginning of 
its present form. 



As expected, the Reeves Finan- 
cial Report was unanimously ac- 
cepted. Both councils were in un- 
animity in favoring the Bethune 
proposal, "that freshmen be al- 
lowed in upperclass dormitories 
subject to review at any time". The 
issues of having upperclassmen in 
freshman dorms without J.A. per- 
mission received similar approval. 

Debate Over Penalties 

Most of the evening's contro- 
versy was centered around the 
issue of penalties. Both councils 
were unanimously in favor of RE- 
CORD publicity of any rushing 
agreement violation. The College 
Council, by a 12-3 margin, voted 
to approve of both a $300 fine as 
well as Social Probation to any 
house violating the rushing agree- 
ment. After the Social Council 
failed to reach any majority de- 
cision, Tink Campbell '56 and Bill 
Montgomery '55 pressed for a re- 
vote and a rewording of the re- 
solution in order to break the 
deadlock. As a result, the $300 
fine was accepted by an 8-6 vote 
of the SC and social probation re- 
ceived an overwhelming 11-3 ma- 
jority. In the finale, both councils 
adopted a resolution which in ef- 
fect stated that both penalties 
CAN be used but the decision 
would be up to the discretion of 
the rushing arbiter and the SC 
and CC. 

Pelham Quotas Lowered 

Since considerable amounts of 
time had been devoted at previous 
meetings to a debate on quotas, 
the CC and SC moved for a vote 
after a short discussion. With one 
member abstaining, the College 
Council gave a 13-3 majority in 
support of lowering the present 
quotas by one. A close 8-7 vote in 
the Social Council put the pro- 
posal into effect. The proposal of 
having some committee, composed 
of two or three delegates from 
each house which would meet af- 
ter all final bids had been deter- 
mined and see if any members of

Editorial 

Keep Williams Small 



Today collef^es are faced with the problem of what steps they 
should take to provide educational opportiuiities to meet the tre- 
mendous increase in enrollments that is e.\pected within the ne.\t 
few years. Already since the end of World War 11 the number of 
applications has increased each year so that now the small private 
colleges like WilHams must decide whether or not to expand their 
facilities. 

At recent alumni banquets in Boston and in Philadelphia, 
President Baxter announced that Williams, like Amherst and Wes- 
leyan, will not make any drastic changes but will "stand ))at". This 
decision which has also been made by many of the other smaller 
colleges throughout the coinitry will in no way deprive high school 
students of the 0]3portunity of gaining a college education. The 
large state universities can and are planning to expand and will, 
therefore, be able to take care of this general increase in enrollment. 

Any great expansion in the number of undergraduates will 
necessarily be at the expense of many of the princi|)les upon which 
Williams has long operated. Small classes, a high student-teacher 
ratio, close facidty-student relationships, and a closely knit student 
body are some of the aspects of life at Williams which must be 
preserved and for which most of us decided to attend Williams in 
the first place. 

These advantages that Williams offers make it necessary to 
keep the college at its present size. Since the luiiversities can and 
want to grow in enrollment, they will willingly take care of tlie 
surplus. Williams will in the long run be making a greater contri- 
bution by continuing its present educational system and turning 
out a small number of graduates who have had the special benefits 
which Williams offers and which cannot be foimd in larger col- 
leges and universities. 



A Small Step 



The joint meeting of the Social Council and the College Coun- 
cil on Monday, March 21 did not produce any revolution in the 
Williams College rushing policies. But at least the meeting gave 
interested observers a chance to look at the various views and ideas 
that are the confusion of Williams rushing. One minor point of dis- 
cussion has been overlooked by almost everyone and yet that point 
could prove to be an important step towards total opportimity. 

The councils spent some time discussing the advisability of 
a meeting of house presidents and rushing chairmen before th<.' 
issuing of final bids in an effort to secure a fraternity bid for each 
sophomore rushee. Such a meeting would be voluntary and many 
would minimize its value. But at least such a committee would pro- 
vide st)me additional framework in which those who believe in 
total o|)portimity can work. 

And this one small step may contribute to a change in attitude 
that must necessarily take place on the Williams campus before 
total opportunity becomes a reality. Williams men must become 
more concerned about each individual rushee and less concerned 
with their own selfish interests. A feeling must arise that the house 
can do something for the sophomore as well as the sophomore add- 
ing something to the house. The CC and SC have shown by their 
sentiment vote in favor of the projiosed voluntary meeting that 
there is a rising concern for each individual rushee. The step that 
the councils took was a small one, but small steps are necessary in 
the evolutionary movement towards progress.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 



Dear Fellas, 

Y'know, 1 get along pretty well with the people up here, so every 
once in a while tliey K't me come down and see some of my old 
friends, tlunigh most of them were yearlings when 1 was aromid. 
Anyhow, 1 was down in Oklahoma City the other day to see a man 
who had made a pretty good thing out of his Dad's newspa|)er. 1 
always said all I knew was what I read in the i)apers, and 1 always 
loved the business. Well, he showi'd me a copy of your lU'X^ORD 
and he was pretty puzzled over it. Uis son Casper is out there at 
school now and he doesn't get home till Jime on accoimt of the tlis- 
tance, and dad didn't know how to read the darn thing, lie says, 
"Will, I want to read the sports section, 'cause they got a red hot 
basketball team out there, but all 1 can see is, look here, Coreymen', 
'Muirmen', 'Shawmeu', 'Pucksters', 'Crapplers'! i;)annieil if 1 can 
figure it out. 1 don't know these guys. When the kid comes home 
this sinnmer and goes to work for me, if he ever calls the Aggies the 
Ibauien, Hank'll come up here and strangle him. " Well, I'm a sjiorts 
lover too, though I never was much good with anything cept a rope, 
and even wc had heard about the basketball team these guys Iuim' 
— so 1 looked it over too. Cood layout but Holy Moses! Dad allowed 
tliat he's gone over to see Chauncy Astorhorn, who went out to 
Williams in the old clays, but he hadn't been back in thirty years, 
and all the old coaches were long gone, so he didn't ever bother to 
get a subscription any more. Sa)'S that Casjier's interested in flying 
(darn it) and has joined the Club and he figures they call them the 
Spacemen. Well, 1 guess the poor guy will have to wait till this 
summer, but 1 wonder if all the other parents feel the same way, 
and the old alumni too. 

What you fellas ought to do is to put kind of a Key on the back page 
SOS folks can translate this stuff. 1 want to find out what a Ihurier 
is too. Guess I'll ask Webster when 1 get back. Anyhow, it would 
be fun, like those Photcxpiizzes and such they have in magazines. 
Sorry 1 couldn't drop in and talk it all over, hut 1 don't get nnieli 
leave any more - not since the goveniment's been subsidizing corn.

We should like to express thanks to all those who helped in any 
way to make the group of kids from Church of the Master in New 
York feel at home in Williamstown. The kids considered the week- 
end a great experience and we considered it very successful largeK' 
due to the really terrific friendliness and hospitality that these kids 
found all over the campus. Thanks go es|)ecially to those houses 
that entertained members of the group at meals, and to the fresh- 
men who were the hosts for the groui) at Sunday dinner in Baxter 
Hall. ' 

Once again, let us express the ap|)reciation of the kids, the 
Church, and ourselves for the entire weekend.

Williams compiled an impressive record last spring, tieing for 
second with Dartmouth in a 2.5 team field at the New England In- 
tircollegiate championships. Captain Kd Manro. who reached the 
semi-finals ()f the tourney, and Ciehret played a large part in the 
Ihixtermen's success as the University of C'onni'cticut edged the 
I'luple by two strokes for the title. 

Playing behind Mauro, (Jehret had an important role in 

helping the team to sweep nine consecutive matches before bowing 

to .\mherst in an u|>set. C;arey, Chapman, and White were the 

thiril, fourth, and sixth men, respect ivc-ly, on that Williams scpiad.

Gehret defeated Lockhart for 
tlic college diadem in match play 
with three up and two holes to go. 
The lowest qualifying score of the 
tournament was a 156. turned In 
by Gehret. In 1954, Lockhart 
played in the number three slot 
on the freshman club, behind Bill 
Chapman and Bob Cummings. 
with Jakubowski as the fourth

Wednesday, Mar. 30 - The game 
of rugby, due to the efforts of cer- 
tain individuals, is attempting to 
gain the status of a spring sport 
here at Williams, although some- 
what unsuccessfully as yet. This 
Idea was first suggested by a num- 
ber of the student body, includ- 
ing Carl Schoeller and Reg Ples- 
nar, who had played the game 
before In England, and was taken 
to Doug Smith, the English jani- 
tor in Lasell Gym with 22 seasons 
of rugby experience. 

Smith immediately accepted the 
suggestion and under his leader- 
ship the idea began to take defi- 
nite shape. A list of those interest- 
ed was signed by between 60 and 
70 and a committee was formed 
by Smith, made up of Bob Be- 
thune, Hovey Clark, Fred John- 
son and Schoeller, to carry out 
the ideas suggested by a meeting 
of those men who originally sign- 
ed. It was here that the rugby 
idea first encountered major dif- 
ficulties when, after Smith had 
been turned down by Athletic 
Director Frank Thorns in his bid 
to make rugby a spring sport, the 
committee received the same an- 
swer. 

Funds, Playing Field Needed 

Nevertheless all Involved felt 
that the sport should be canied 
on without training or counting 
as a P.T. exemption. It was decided 
that even though there was a de- 
finite lack of money needed for 
the necessary equipment and tra- 
veling expenses for outside con- 
tests, the group would do every- 
thing on its own with the players 
and the coach contributing to get 
things started. Also refused the 
chance to play on a varsity or 
freshman athletic field. Smith and 
his squad moved to an area down 
past the frosh soccer field which 
has since been cleared for prac- 
tice purposes. 

Coach and organizer Smith be- 
came originally interested in the 
idea not only because of his ex- 
perience and love of the game, but 
also because he feels that there is 
a basic lack of sports competition 
in America for those who may not 
be good enough to make a varsity 
or freshman team. He hopes to 
schedule games with the Dart- 
mouth, Harvard and Princeton 
rugby clubs this spring, and is go- 
ing about readying his squad by 
means of practice sessions and 
strategy talks. Most important of 
all however. Smith hopes to firm- 
ly establish rugby at Williams with 
the hope that it may someday be 
recognized as a varsity sport.

Muggrsy Ames, Baseball Captain 



Baseball Team To Meet Eight Opponents; 
Lack of Batting Practice Hampers Ephs 

1)1/ Joe AlhriglU 

Wednesday, March 30 - It is officially spring now, and sports- 
conscious Ephs are beginning to think about baseball, even though 
the weather still favors the skiers. Last year, the varsity nine lost 
twice as many games as it won, but this season Coach Bobby 
(Toombs hopes to turn out a winning club. "All we need is some 
sunshine," said Coombs. 

The varsity team, with four letuining regulars, takes off on its 
southern tri|) next Monday. The spring schedule includes a total 
of eight games with colleges from Virginia, North Carolina, and 
New Jersey. Eighteen men, led by (>aptain Muggsy Ames, will 
make the trip. This includes six pitchers, six infielders, four out- 
fielders, and two catchers, 

Epli.s Meet Eif^ltl Teams 
The team opens with a two-game stand against Elon College 
in North Carolina on Monday and Tuesday, April 4 and 5. The 
Berkshire weather has kept the squad in the cage thus far, so they 
. ^Owill meet Elon without the bene- 
fit of any batting practice. Since 
the team batting average was an 
unimpressive .179 last year, the 
hitting may be weak in these Xirst 
few games. 



Strong, Experienced Tennis Squad 
Faces Tough Twelve Game Slate 



Captain Kesel, Jensen, 
Cullen Spark Netmen 
On Southern Tour 



Saturday. Mar. 26 - The var- 
sity tennis team plays a rugged 
five game schedule on their south- 
ern trip this spring vacation. 
Coach Chaffee's racquet squad will 
open against William and Mary 
at Williamsburg, Virginia on 
April 4. The next day they face 
the University of Virginia who 
beat the Ephs on last year's trip 
at Charlottesville. 

On April 6 they face the usually 
top ranking team. North Carolina, 
winner twice last year over Wil- 
liams on the Southern trip. The 
Purple will spend the following 
day traveling to Durham, North 
Carolina, where they will be en- 
tertained by Duke on Friday. The 
trip will come to a close when the 
Chatfeemen play a team called 
the Country Club of Virginia. 

Yale. Harvard Strong 

With good weather, the team 
will play a twelve game schedule 
beginning April 21 against Bow- 
doin. The team plays Bowdoin. 
Brown, Colgate. North Carolina, 
Harvard, Yale and Wesleyan at 
home, while they will face MIT, 
Springfield, Army, Dartmouth, and 
Amherst on foreign courts. 

North Carolina, Yale and Har- 
vard should be the strongest teams 
on this schedule. North Carolina 
is a perennial power. Yale is on 



the crest of a tennis wave, with 
most of the team that won the 
New England's last year returning. 
Harvard, although not as potent 
as Yale or North Carolina will 
nevertheless be strong. 

Purple Picture Good 

The Williams picture is bright 
also. The team has four return- 
ing lettermen. Captain George Ke- 
sel, Wally Jensen, Lou Bortnlck 
and Mac Fiske. Bill Cullen, Howie 
Patterson and George Leonard who 
played numbers one, two, and three 
on last year's powerful Freshman 
Team will fill important places. 

Once the season gets under way, 
the ladder should be headed by 
Cullen. He was undefeated last 
year as a freshman and is the 
college champion. 

New England's Here 

Captain Kesel, who features a 
very steady game, will be an ex- 
cellent number three man with 
two years of varsity experience be- 
hind him. Numbers four, five and 
six should cause a good deal of 
competition between Patterson, 
undefeated as a freshman, Bort- 
nlck, another steady competitor 
with a great deal of experience, 
and Fiske who did well last year 
at number six. 

The feature of the season will 
be the fact that the New England 
Inter-collegiate Tennis Cham- 
pionships will be held here in the 
middle of May on the 13. 14 and 
15.

The Williams nine runs into 
three more North Carolina oppo- 
nents, Davidson, Gilford, and 
Belmont-Abbey, on Wednesday, 
Thursday, and Fi-iday, April 6-8. 
On Saturday, the team invades 
Virginia to face the University of 
Richmond, and then heads North 
again to meet two New Jersey 
teams. On Monday, the Purple 
will play Upsula, and the trip will 
draw to a close Tuesday in a game 
with Farleigh-Dickinson. 

Veterans in Outfield 

As it stands now, the outfield 
shapes up as the strongest part 
of the team. Captain Ames who 
led last year's team with a not- 
too sparkling .234 batting aver- 
age, will start in center. He will 
be flanked by Charlie Freeman 
and Herbie Ladds, both of whom 
saw some starting action last year. 
Freeman was one of the leading 
long-ball hitters last year. 

The Infield will be headed by 
John Hatch, another of last year's 
starters, who has the second-base 
slot sewed up. Jack Henderson, 
who saw limited action last year, 
will probably start at short stop. 
At first base, Coach Coombs has 
Clark Sperry and Dick Marr to 
chose from, while Dick Fearon 
and Ed Lauben will fight it out 
for the hot corner spot. 

Tom Yankus was an outstand- 
ing hurler last year, pitching 
mostly one, two, and three-hitters. 
If the team is to end up with a 
winning record, Yankus will have 
to do most of the work. The rest 
of the mound crew, led by Char- 
lie Shaw and Ned Heppenstall, 
will also see a lot of action. Gary 
Leinbach, who batted a promis- 
ing .333 in nine trips to the plate, 
will start behind the plate.

THE WILLIAMS RECORD, WKDNESDAY, MARCH 30, 1955 



VMS Achieves Fast Prominence 
Despite Extraordinary Birth Place 



Station Aims to Improve 
College-Wide Reception 
Before Spring Term 



Wednesday, Mar. 30 - Early in 
1942, one of the now prominent 
and successful organizations on 
campus had its beginning in a 
most incongruous way. WMS wa.s 
born — illegally — at this time 
when two freshmen in Sage Hall 
rigged their own transmitter and 
put the first program on the air. 

The freshmen were discovered 
when, one day, present Dean of 
Freshmen Roy Lamson was driving 
by the quad in his car, only to 
discover more static than usual on 
his car radio. After a bit of tuning. 
Dean Lamson received one of the 
first broadcasts of WMS; he has 
been, from that time to the pre- 
sent, station advisor for WMS. 

Sponsors 

From the very beginning WMS 
has realized the necessity of good, 
paying sponsors in order to make 
a success. They have succeeded. 
They have contracts with five na- 
tional organizations at the pre- 
sent time, and receive about $2,000 
per annum as income from their 
sponsors alone. 

Every frustrated college student 
on campus has been on a "Dream 
Date", — sponsored by Old Gold, 
and everyone is also familiar with 
the Get Lucky Show, sponsored by 
Lucky Strike. The station also gives 
advertising to all of the local mer- 
chants — as can be seen on the 
"annual blotter" — not to mention 
the contracts with Columbia, Vic- 
tor, and Capitol. About $1,250 is 
spent each year on records. 

Member of CRC 

Radio Station WMS took one of 
the last steps toward their pre- 
sent prominence in 1953 when they 
joined the CRC, the College Radio 
Corporation. By joining the CRC 
they obtained a large part of their 
present national sponsors, for the 
CRC holds a virtual monopoly on 
this field. 

A note worthy of mention here, 
is that, except for the facilities 
provided for the Station in Bax- 
ter Hall, the Station is not Col- 
lege subsidized. WMS breaks even 
almost every year, and any profit 
obtained is turned back into the 
Station. 

New Transmitter 

Purchasing and installing a new 
transmitter this year. WMS has 
increased its potential transmit- 
ting power from 15 watts to 250 
watts. Reception of the station is 
very good in the Freshman Quad, 
Morgan Hall, the Sophomore Quad, 
and West College; by the end of 
Spring vacation the Station hopes 
to cover the entire College com- 
munity by transmitting signals 
through the main College electri- 
cal system. 

Sponsoring such programs as 
the Inter-Fraternity Quiz, the Fac- 
ulty Student Forum, Questions Are 
Your Clues, the Inter Fraternity 
Sing, and Campus News, WMS 
had become the initiator of a size- 
able amount of College unity. The 
station also tentatively plans to 
start a student Talent Show in 
the near future. 




Vern Squires, WMS President 



Squires '56 Accepts 
Westinghouse Award 

Achievement Grant Gives 
Summer Job Opening 



Wednesday, Mar. 30 - A West- 
inghouse Achievement Scholar- 
ship for the college year '55- '56 
has been awarded to Vernon 
Squires. '56. according to Henry 
N. Flynt. Jr., Director of Student 
Aid. This award is unique among 
scholarships at Williams because 
it carries with it an opportunity 
to work with Westinghouse dur- 
ing the summer of the junior year. 

The grant, which was Initiated 
only last year on the Williams 
campus, is awarded by the Stu- 
dent Aid Committee to a junior on 
scholarship on the basis of a- 
chievement in academic work, ex- 
tra-curricular activities, and other 
responsibilities. This award is for 
a sum of $500; but if the candi- 
date needs a larger scholarship, 
this will be supplemented from the 
regular fund. Last year's recipient 
was Ron Wilson, who was unable 
to take advantage of the summer 
job opportunity because the news 
arrived too late. 

Summer Job 

According to Squires, his op- 
portunity for a summer job is a 
part of the corporation's Student 
Training Activity Program, and 
he will be at the Westinghouse 
Education Center in Wilkensburg, 
Pennsylvania, near Pittsburgh. 

This grant, which carries no ob- 
ligations to work for Westing- 
house, is a part of the recent in- 
terest of big corporations in aid- 
ing private institutions. General 
Motors, Sloan Foundation, and 
Ford Foundation are also grant- 
ing financial assistance to Wil- 
liams' students.

Admissions . . . 

Applications Doubled 

Since Copeland took over as Di- 
rector of Admissions in 1946, pre- 
liminary applications have nearly 
doubled. Tills year Copeland and 
Pynchon have visited over 200 
schools as far west as Seattle and 
Los Angeles. 641 prospective fresh- 
men have travelled to Williams- 
town since September 1 and have 
been interviewed by one of the 
committee members. 

The admissions and scholar- 
ship committees work very closely 
in an attempt to coordinate their 
efforts. Although the admissions 
committee makes suggestions, the 
scholarship board has complete 
jurisdiction over its own activi- 
ties. Formal acceptances are sent 
out by all the "Little Three" on 
April 20. This date is according to 
the rules made by the three 
schools several years ago; how- 
ever, verbal encouragement may 
be given prior to this time. 



Frosh Council . . . 

Freshman Council meeting was a 
new Gargoyle program to acquaint 
the freshman class with the pro- 
blem they will face while going 
through rushing next September. 
Tony Moro '55, gave a short talk 
to the frosh council in which he 
explained the Gargoyle scheme. 

The plan, which the Council 
accepted, is to have two members 
of Gargoyle give speeches to the 
freshmen sometime after vacation 
advising them how to meet the 
problems. The Gargoyle society has 
yet to announce who the speakers 
will be and the dates of these talks. 



CC-SC . . 



this committee might pick up any 
rushees not receiving final bids, 
received complete support from 
both councils. CC President Kirt 
Gardiner '56, announced that a 
joint SC and CC Rushing Com-

Sprague Lashes Out 
At Tramway Critics 

Authority Chairman Says 
Project Not 'Exploited' 



Wednesday, Mar. 30 - Defend- 
ing again his much publicized 
stand, Robert C. Sprague, Jr., 
chairman of the Mount Greylock 
Tramway Committee, stressed that 
the authority has no intention to 
"exploit" the mountain for any- 
one's private gain. 

Speaking before the North 
Adams Kiwanis Club, Sprague 
lashed out against the many cri- 
tics of the proposed one mile 
tramway. He was especially out- 
spoken against tliose who feel 
that the enterprise will be used 
for private financial profit. 

Sprague pointed out that the 
authority is a public organization 
established by legislature. Mem- 
bers appointed by the Governor 
are unpaid and their sole purpose 
is to finance and construct the 
tramway. In addition Sprague 
maintained that the tramway 
would be built on the "logical" 
Adams side of the mountain. 

Chairman Sprague added that 
this choice was made for economy, 
convenience and also because it 
would offer the best view to those 
using the tramway. He said that 
engineers have claimed that the 
project would pay for Itself with- 
in ten years. 



Wish, OuKht, and Need 

Mr. Myers proposed that a per- 
son either wishes to, thinks he 
ought to, or thinks lie needs to 
believe in something. There Is 
nothing mysterious or questiona- 
ble about wishing to believe, for it 
involves only mental desire. To 
feel that one "ouBht" to believe 
is somewhat more complex since 
"ought" can infer a causal, ethi- 
cal or command statement. The 
causal and ethical statements re- 
fer to what could be done to ob- 
tain a certain result or what 
should be done, respectively. The 
idea of "ought" being a command 
to believe is impossible, since be- 
lief can not be forced on a person. 

To need to believe in something 
implies that you either already 
believe in it, or that you do not 
believe in it but you would like 
to believe in it. 

Believe That or In? 

Reverend Cole explained the in- 
tellectual belief and being "1 be- 
lieve that . . ." something is so. In 
this type of belief, science replac- 
ed the religious doctrines that as- 
sured the validity of facts a couple 
of hundred years ago. In contrast, 
today people accept beliefs that 
are tested by scientific experi- 
mentation. 

The other position of belief is 
the indeterminent belief in per- 
sons, ideals, or god. These beliefs 
are based on will and emotions. 
The will and emotions are not 
tested experimentally to determine 
the truth of the hypotheses. 



Porter Discloses 
Decision to Raze 
Nearby Residence 

Songwriter to Enlarge 
Present Guest House 
For Use in Future 



Saturday, Mar. 26 - The Wll- 
liamstown country mansion ot 
Cole Porter, noted song writer, is 
slated to be torn down in the near 
future. The house has been ont o( 
Northern Berkshire's show places 
since its erection in 1914. 

Mr. Porter, however, will reiiiin 
his property on Buxton Hill; )ie 
intends to remodel a present guest 
house into a smaller residence for 
his use on his frequent visits to 
Williamstown. Mrs. Porter be- 
queathed the property to her hus- 
band following her recent death, 
along with her home in Paris 
Former Summer Home 

The large stone structure, ot ma- 
terial brought from Oermanlown, 
Pa., was built by Miss Jean Ail ken 
of New York City. Miss Ailken 
later married Rt. Rev. Robert 
Louis Paddock, retired Episcopal 
bishop of Oregon, and the couple 
made it theli- summer home tor 
many years. During that time they 
entertained extensively, especially 
during the years of the Institute 
of Politics at Williams College 

At the death of Bishop Pad- 
dock following that of his wife, 
the property was left in trust with 
three bishops of the Episcopal 
Church as trustees. It was subse- 
quently sold to Mrs. Porter in 1940. 
Mrs. Portei' made many improve- 
ments. 

I'he house to be demolished 
contains five bedrooms and four 
baths, a reception hall and lari;e 
living room as well as service 
quarters. It also contains three 
servant.s' rooms and bath. The 
disclosure of Mr. Porter's plans 
ended rumors circulated in New 
York City following Mrs. Porter's 
death that the property would be 
given to Williams College.

NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE, you'U get more pleasure from 
your cigarette if it's a Lucky Strike. That's the point of the 
Droodle above, titled: Three deep-sea divers enjoying Luckiee. 
You get deep-down smoking enjoyment from Luckies because 
they taste better. Why do they taste better? That's easy to 
fathom. First of all, Lucky Strike means fine tobacco. Then, 
that tobacco is toasted to taste better. " Ifs Toasted "— the 
famous Lucky Strike process— tones up Luckies' light, mild, 
good-tasting tobacco to make it taste even better . . . cleaner, 
fresher, smoother. So, when it's light-up time, light up the 
better-tasting cigarette . . . Lucky Strike,

Thurman Speaks On 
Protection Of Truths 



Sunday Chapel Speaker 
Analyzes Temptations 



Sunday, April 17 - This evening 
in the Thompson Memorial Cha- 
pel the Reverend Howard Thur- 
man. Dean of the Chapel at Bos- 
ton University spoke on protec- 
tion truth. Reverend Thurman 
discussed the Importance of be- 
lieving in what you personally 
feel is true and clinging to this as 
truth. 

Reverend Thurman analyzed the 
conversation and thoughts that 
went on between Jesus and Satan 
while Jesus was in the wilderness 
after his baptism. Satan's temp- 
tations to Jesus, beginning with 
tile phrase "If you are the son of 
God — ". attack the primary 
truths in which Jesus believes: the 
materialistic bread is not all that 
is needed in the world, the world 
was orderly so that exceptions are 
not made, and the love of God is 
better than all the other treasures 
on the earth. 

Reverend Thurman felt that a 
person must obtain truth and keep 
truth permanently. To gain his 
truth he must be impartial. He 
must be able to tear down with 
his right hand that which his 
left hand builds if he feels that 
that which his left hand construct- 
ed is false. Man should try to gain 
the best truth that is possible and 
should shut his eyes to nothing 
that seems to be the truth. 

The truth which a person is to 
acquire is the full acceptance of a 
prevailing belief in his mind. The

Young Democrats 
Combine to Hear 
Opinions on Yalta 

Political Scientists Join 
In Criticism of Dulles 
At Bennington Panel 



Wednesday. Mar. 30 - A forum 
sponsored by the recently organ- 
ized Young Democrats of Williams 
and Bennington brought together 
tonight Professors Oliver Garceau 
and Max Salvadori of Bennington, 
and Frederick Schuman and 
James Burns of Williams, to dis- 
cuss "Yalta and '56". The panel, 
which was expected to be divided 
over the issue, failed to find any 
basis on which to support Secre- 
tary of State John Foster Dulles, 
for his unprecedented release of 
"restricted" documents. All ex- 
pressed gratitude "that the facts 
were at last out", but were dis- 
pleased over the partisan manner 
in which the Republican Admin- 
istration acted. 

Frederick Schuman launched a 
vigorous attack on Dulles, fre- 
quently using such terms as "in- 
competent" and "senile". He stress- 
ed the disunity in the present ad- 
ministration, pointing out the dif- 
ferences of views between the Re- 
publican Party's top officials: El- 
senhower, Dulles, Nixon and 
Knowland. In 1953 before the Sen- 
ate Foreign Relations Committee 
headed by Republican Senator Wi- 
ley of Wisconsin, Dulles emphasiz- 
ed the need for "collaboration" be- 
tween the Secretary of State and 
Congress. According to Schuman. 
Dulles made a "mockery out of 
this pledge" of a bipartisan for- 
eign policy. 

Mixup On Matsu Policy 

In 1955. Schuman pointed out, 
Dulles slated that the United 
States was not committed to de- 
fend either Matsu or Quemoy. He 
later said that the United Slates 
would intervene if an attack on 
those islands was "interpreted as 
an attack on Formosa". Profes- 
sor Schuman concluded that such 

policy, based on contradiction, 
is incompetent.

Custodian of SU Recreation Room 
Describes 40 Years in Pool Hall 



By Joe Albright 

Wednesday. April 20 - "There 
is no one in the College who can 
play pool or billiards any more." 
declares Bill Danaher. who is cus- 
todian of the game-room in the 
basement of the Student Union. 
Bill says that Williams men were 
much more billiards and pool-con- 
scious thirty or forty years ago, 
even though the seven tables he 
manages now are in almost con- 
stant use. In those days, there 
were 30 tables within 100 yards 
along Spring Street. 

Bill says he knows about half 
the men in College by name today, 
and quite a few of their fathers. 
Thirty years ago. he knew nearly 
everyone. He has been in contact 
with College men since 1915. Al- 
though he has worked for the Col- 
lege lor Just seven years, he has 
worked right on Spring Street for 
the rest of the time. His job was 
then, just as it Is now. to super- 
vise pool-halls. In the 33 years 
before he took the College job. he 
worked for three different ones, 
run by good old Williamstown men.

Editorial 



Congratulations 



With a definite amount of nii.xed emotions, the RECORD 
would like to add its name to the long list of well wishers of Pro- 
fessor Howard R. Bowen who recently accepted an invitation to 
become President of Grimiell College. The invitation is a weil- 
ileservcd opportunity for the young professor of economics. 

But we at Williams camiot allow Mr. Bowen to dep;ut from 
the local scene without sincere regret. Mr. Bowen has been a hard- 
working, de\oted instructor who lias never been too busy to gi\e 
counsel to inc|uiring students. A man of exceptional jiatience, -Mr. 
Bowen's aid and consideration have become an important jjart of 
inany Williams' men's education timing the last three years. 

Mr. Bowen has in his Williams stay earned the label that 
ranks above all degrees. He has been a true educator. Williams 
will miss a gentleman of great ability and bis (luiet, friendly man- 
ner. Congratidations, Mr. I3owen. We know that you will be a suc- 
cess in your new position as you were in your much too brief stay 
at Williams. 



A Hope For Next Year 

In their last meeting before s|iring vacation, the College and 
Social Comicils decided on the rules and (piotas that will govern 
rushing next September for the class of '58. Opening up the fresh- 
man dormitories was an important step in breaking down the "bar- 
riers" that deferred rushing erected between the trosh and the up- 
]5erclassnien. Reducing the ([uotas by one was also a wise mosc. 
for in this way we can still woik foi' the two major aims of the sys- 
tem — to strengthen fraternities and reduce stratification and al.so 
to encomage a condition of voluntary total opportunity and rushing. 

Perhaps more important than all of these decisions, however, 
was one that received little immediate attention — a tentative phu 
for a rejiresentative of each house to meet during the rushing week 
with the hopes of taking into fraternities all rnshees who received 
no final bids. Kirt Gardner, ijresident of the College Comicil, has 
already set up a coinmittee to study this possibility and to formu- 
late plans for such a meeting. 

Almost every student at Williams is in favor of the princi|)le 
of total o|)|)ortimity by which all sophomores will have a chance to 
join soiTie fraternity. Great difficidty and difference of opinion arise, 
however, whenever anyone tries to |)ractically implement this de- 
sired ideal, and the greatest arguments against total o]5portimity 
are that the fraternities shoidd not Ix- forced to take someone who, 
for one reason or another, they do not want and do not feel wtxdd 
be compatible. 

Total opportunity can only work with the voluntary and whole- 
hearted sujjport of the fraternities. Any attempts at compulsory 
total rushing would be disastrims, since life would be miserable 
for both the houses and the "enforced" members. There is little 
likelihood that such attempts will be made, however. 

If this suggested council is adopted and receives the support 
of the fraternities, then the kind of voluntary total rushing that is 
so desirable can he achieved. No house need be under any specific 
obligation when it attends such a meeting though it is hoped that 
the Iraternities will feel some obligation not only to the freshmen 
but to the college and will therehire make a conscious and deter- 
mined effort to take all sophomores desiring to join fraternities. 
Perha|is this relatively conservative jilan will not satisfy the ardent 
leaders of a total rushing leagiu-, but if adopted and then supported 
by a fair trial, such a system will certainly prove to be the best 
way of eveiitimlly achieving total rushing.

Molba, his wife, reads her jiart as though it was written in a 
foreign language, but Ward Bond, Bob's coach, and Ann Doran 
and Howard Pctrie, the hero's parents, all did a good job. Mathias, 
who plays himself in this flicK, should stick to track and forget 
Hollywood. He has kept his amateur standing as an actor clean. 



The first shoot-em-up in VistaVision, "RUN FOR COVER", 
now at the Capital in Pittsfield, mixes action with a lot of conver- 
sation. This Pine-Thomas production offers James Cagni'y's views 
about not getting to feel .sorry for oneself. Instead of running tor 
cox'er at the first set-back, the wise keep going and continue to |iick 
up the ])ieces, according to "Aristotle" Cagney's advice for his 20- 
year old companion, John Derek. 

Cagney, less at ea.se than in "A Lion Is In the Streets ", is un- 
eonviueing as he wades through the Harriett Frank, Jr. - Irsing 
Ravetch storv which Winton .Nliller has turned into a .screenplav. 
|()hn Derek plays the hoy who travels with C^agiiey and \'i\eea 
Lindfors does accei^tahle work as the Swedish farmer's daughtei'. 

The supporting cast includes Jean Hersholt, making one of 
his rare appearances in the flicks, in the role of Viveca's father, 
and Ernest Borknine, subject of a recent "Life" article. CJrant With- 
ers, Ray Teal, Irving Bacon, (Jus Schilling, |ack Lambert, and 
possihlv Leo the Lion (it's hard to identifv everyone), make up the 
rest of the characters who wander around the screen. All of them 
try hard but none succeed. 

Cagney's patience is the most unusual part of "HUN FOR CX)- 
VER" because the star normally has explosive roles in his flicks. 
He, or rather Matt Dow, has spent six years In jail simpiv as a re- 
sult of resembling an actual criminal. He is mistaken lor a bandit 
and shot at by the Madison sheriff and townsfolk when he was onlv 
trying to return a bag of money tossed at him by a nervous railway 
clerk. 

Worst of all, the youth he raises like a son and nurses back to 
health tries to kill him after joining forces with the Gentry gang. 
With all this disillusionment, our hero maintains his integrity and 
sunny disposition. .\s a matter of fact he often seems plain silly 
and so does a good bit of the flicker.

AS I SEE IT 

by Bill Quillen 



On A|)ril 12, 1945, Franklin Delano Hoosevelt died. Last week, 
the eleventh year since the end of the Roo.sevelt era began and the 
debate oyer the late President's ladersliip appeared to he just b< j^iij. 
ning. History will be unable to reiuler a (piick verdict on the IUkw. 
velt Presidency and we shall never he able to sum up the twelve 
years of Hoosc'velt with a plus or minus sign. The years from li)32 
to 1945 were years of coniplicatetl probli'ins and there can Ik im 
simple judgement on the tlecisions taken. 

And yet, there is a (piality about President Hoosevelt that is 
universally respected if not universally adiniretl. Unlike many of 
lis predecessors, he was tridy President of the United States. It is 
true that Franklin Roosevelt was President during times that ran- 
stantly demanded leadership. Hut the ania/ing fact is that Presnlcnt 
Roosexi'lt was consistentlv ahk' to lead. .Vnu'ricans everywlnir, 
many of whom hated FDR, listened to and respectetl the positive 
confident voice in the White House which hir twelve years wa. the 
voice of America. 

Times change and situations change but somehow there s( .nis 
to be a consistency about the people who live in the various times 
and situations. Peojile today as always ilesire to he Iree, serine, 
and to have the riglit to walk with self-respect among flieir nri;ili. 
bors. And today more than ever there is a great opportunit\ ten 
leadership. For today in the United States, in the \Vestern llrmi- 
sphere, in Europe, in Asia, and in the world, there is a demaml lor 
an "arsenal of democracy". 

Our era demands leadership. People todav as in 1932 are look- 
ing for someone or something in which they can place their confi- 
clenee and their faith. D(Mnoeiacv ninst till that gap. There cannot 
be any shirking of leadership. Democracy must oiler lood to llie 
hungry, homes to the homeless, and hope to the hopeless. Dciihk'- 
racy nuist give a permanent faith to the world. 

In 19.56 there will be another Piisidential election. Ther<' will 
be new issues and perhaps new candidates. Hut there will be minv 
in .America who will vote the same as they voted for tlie last six 
Presidential elections. 'I'hev will east their ballots lor Franklin l)cl- 
aiu) Roosevelt through the only means tliev know, the DenuKiMlic 
Party. In the next generation, iininy ol the world's despairing pro. 
pie will make the biggest decision of their lives. How will they Mite 
in 1980?

SCIENCE MADE SIMPLE: NO. 3 

Once again the makers of Philip Morris, men who are dedicated 
to the betteimient of American youth, have consented to let me 
use this space, normally intended for levity, to bring you a brief 
lesson in science. 

It is no new thing, this concern that the makers of Philiii 
Morris feel for American youth. Youth was foremost in their 
minds when they fashioned their cigarette. They were aware 
that the palate of youth is keen and eager, awake to the subtlc.il 
nuances of flavor. And so they made a gentle and clement smoke. 
a suave blending of temperate vintage tobaccos, a summer.v 
amalgam of the most tranquil and emollient leaf that their 
buyers could find in all the world. And then they de.signed their 
cigarette in two sizes, king-size and regular, and wrapped them 
in the convenient Snap-Open pack, and priced them at a figure 
that youth could afford, and made them available at every 
tobacco counter in the land. 

That's what they did, the makers of Philip Morris, and I for 
one am glad. 

The science that we take up today is called astronomy, from the 
Greek words astro meaning "sore" and nomy meaning "back." 
Sore backs were the occupational disease of the early Greek 
astfonomers, and no wonder! They used to spend every blessed 
night lying on the damp ground and looking up at the sky, and 
if there's a better way to get a sore back, I'd like to hear about it. 
Especially in the moist Mediterranean area, where Greece i.'; 
generally considered to be. 

Lumbago and related disorders kept astronomy from becom- 
ing very popular until Galileo, a disbarred flen.ser of Perth, 
fashioned a home made telescope in 1924 out of three Social 
Security cards and an ordinary ice cube. What schoolboy does 
not know that stirring story — how Galileo .stepped up to hi.s 
telescope, how he looked heavenward, how his face filled witli 
wonder, how he stepped back and whispered the words heard 
round the world: "L'e.fat, c'est mot.'" 

Well sir, you can imagine what happened then! William 
Jennings Bryan snatched Nell Gwynne from the shadow of the 
guillotine at Oslo; Chancellor Bismarck brought in four gushers 
in a single afternoon; Hal Newhouser wa.s signed by the 
Hanaeatic League; Crete was declared off limits to Wellington'.s 
entire army ; and William Faulkner won the Davis Cup for his 
immortal Penrod and Sam. 

But after a while things calmed down, and astronomers began 
the staggering task of naming all the heavenly bodies. First 
man to name a star was Sigafoos of Mt. Wilson, and the name 
he chose was Betelgeuse, after his wife Betelgeu.se Sigafoos, 
prom queen at Michigan State College from 1919 to 1931. 

Not to be outdone, Formfig of Yerkes Observatory named a 
whole constellation after his wife, Big Dipper Formfig, the 
famed dirt track racer. This started the custom of astronomers 
natning constellations after their wives - Capricorn, Cygni, 
Orion, Ur.sa Major, Canis Major, and so forth. ( The Major girls, 
Ur.sa and Canis, both married astronomers, though Canis subse- 
quently ran oflf with a drydock broker named Thwaite Daphnis.l 

After naming all the heavenly bodies, the astronomers had a 
good long rest. Then, refreshed and brown as berries, they 
undertook the gigantic project of charting the heavens. Space is 
so vast that it is measured in units called "light-years." These 
are different from ordinary years in that they weigh a good 
deal less. This, of course, is only relative, since space is curved. 
As Einstein laughingly said, "E=:mc2." 

Well, I guess that covers astronomy pretty thoroughly. But 
before we leave this fascinating topic, let us answer one final 
question: Is there life on other planets? 

The answer is a flat, unequivocal no. Recent spectroscopic 
studies have proved beyond a doubt that the atmosphere of the 
other planets is far too harsh to permit the culture of the delicate 
vintage tobaccos that go into Philip Morris Cigarettes . . . And 
who can live without Philip Morris?

eenients anil interviews and features the final triniiipl, of receiviiiir 
the N. C. A. A. hid. ^ 

The recorclin)^ begins with Vern S(|uires' interviews of Presi- 
dent Baxter and Mr. Tlionis alter the niemoiahle lacultv iiieetiiiu'in 
Grillin Hall. At this time it will he reineinherecl Mr. liaxter stated 
that any decision made concerning the hid would have to be an 
administrative- one, but that the faculty certainly had nothhij; 



<;ainst it. 



Shaw Interviewed 
An interview with Coach Shaw is heard next in which it is 
hroiiKht out that Williams would have a toufrh ti,„i. with its remain- 
ing; schedule, but this thouj;lit is niitijiatedliy the fact that Coach 
Shaw's voice sounds so unlhisteicd that to the listener the coinini' 
three victories seem to he assured. 



Undoubtedly the IukIi spots of the recordiiijr are the reporting 
(111 the second Amherst j^anie and the laiuons ^mm' at the Carden 
vMlh C:anisius. During the announcing the crowcl noises are tuned 
(loun at just the right times to allow the listener to catch each word 
ahmit the tense moments.

The last ijortion of the record is designed as a tribute to Coach 
Sh.iw. The four Seniors on the team. Herb Smith, Tom White, Tony 
.\l(iro, and Hon Wilson as well as Phil Siuitli, the manager, all thank 
Mr. Shaw for the experiences of a fine season. 

Po.ssibly the greatest merit of a recording of this type is that 
it iar surpa.sses written statements about past Williams' victories. 
The fact that in Inture years failing memory can he snpplementecl

Critic Lauds Savacool Direction 

Of French Comedy "Dom Juan" 

hi/ John O'Neill, Asxislant Profcinor of English 
In keeping with hi.s h>iig established affinity for the impossible. 
Prof. John Savacool (supported by a dedicated hand of almost .50 
accoinplices) has mounted at the AMT a production of one of the 
most intractable scripts in the classic French repertory - .Moliere's 
Doiii luaii. He has got away with it, too — or as near as makes no 
dilference. It is not unfair to describe this bitter comedy of the em- 
bittered Moliere (whose Turtuffe had just been axed hy the piet- 
ists) as an elegantly written mish-mash. Moliere's prose was never 
purer, his dramaturgy seldom messier. Dom Juan is no play, but 
it is a trenchant and fascinating character-study. Just a series of 
tableaux and dialogues (often interminable), from which, oddly 
enough, emerges a fascinating image of our baser (and truer) 
selves. This Dom Juan is neither the vulgar libertine of Byronic 
tradition nor the Satanic (or Promethean) foe of the gods celebra- 
ted by Mozart, Shaw, and the Spanish tradition. He is a wretch like 
us, with the difference that he tries to be what we all are, in |5art, or 
part of tlie time — great lover, libertine, voluptuary, enemy of men 
and of God, cruel, proud, and corru|5t, and therefore attractive to 
honest men. But be is at bottom a fraud and his whole gaudy car- 
eer (which is only reported, not leijresented in the play) is a ra- 
tionalization of bis own inadetiuacies, his inability to experience 
love, tenderness, and true sexual passion. This is a far cry from the 
spirit of the Dom Juan of the Spanish and Italian tradition behire 
Moliere — Faced with the alternative of defying Him, Moliere's 
Dom chooses to deny, thus removing the prime motivation from 
the grisly end which overtakes the Dom Juan of legend. So Moliere, 
stuck with the old story and committecl to the sensational ending 
where the statue leads I)()ni Juan into hell-fire, turns the Dom into 



PERSONAL SLANT 

b(/ Dave Kleinbunl 
The jolluwina viewn are nvt necessarily those of the rest of the 
RECOHD board out are the personal opinion of tlie writer. 

Few members of the college community will deny Gargoyle 
some credit. The secret honor society has enrolled some excellent 
members and contributed several well-considered jiroposals. 

1. In the meantime Williams has been the victim of a dis- 
astrously weak student government. Constant revisions of the 
constitution have failed to establish an effective governing body. 

A most important reason for this apparently incurable weak- 
ness is plain as can be. 

Faculty and administration look to Gargoyle as their main 
source of student suggestions and proposals, not to the student 
government, despite the fact that the latter organization represents 
student opinion. 

Gargoyle makes few if any really important recommendations 
to the CC, UC, SC, or any predecessors. Instead the organization 
takes its most im|)ortaiit recommendations straight to faculty and 
administration. 

This practice weakens undergraduate government irreparably. 
Surely the faculty and administration feel some obligation to seri- 
ously consider student projiosals. In fulfilling this obligation, they 
seem to rely almost entirely upon the secret honor society and its 
members with httle notice for student opinion expressed in votes 
and through elected government. 

They acce])t or seriously consider Gargoyle recommendations 
and figure their obligation ends at this jjoiiit. 

After all. Gargoyle is sup]5osedly comiiosed of the best men 
on campus. And be.sides, it's easier to keep in line since it has no 
defined responsibility to student opinion and because the dean is 



a religious hypocrite ( byjjocrasy being the cardinal sin against the \ "*'"" ^^'J ^^"''^ *» *'«' individual members. The last resignee from 
comic spirit) and thus justifies the destruction of his hero and Gargoyle charged in this resiject that within the i

(more centrally) striking a blow for freedom and getting in a few 
licks at the phony pietists who had given him such a hard time in 
16.55. Or so it seems to me. 

Happily, Mr. Savacool and company have done everythin 
possible to divert our minds from the maddening ambiguities 
the script. They have imposed a line upon the play, and they have 
decorated it with figurations of music, costume, and pantomime 
to such an extent that when our evening threatens to hog down in 
confusion we are jolted into delight. For me, the chief non-literary 
delights of the production were the witty musical score of Walter 
Nollner, and the costumes of Rassie Gilford. By "preparing" their 
two pianos with a few simple thumb-tacks, Mary Johnson and 



organization mem- 
bers are expected to adhere strictly to the party line, the special set 
of "aims and values". 

The upshot of this situation is that the organs selected for the 
formulation and presentation of undergraduate opinion ha\'e far 
less power, make far less imprint upon the decision-making bodies 
of faculty and administration than 20 men or fewer selected by 20 
men or fewer who more often take their cue from Hopkins tlian 
from the student body. 

2. The manner in which Gargoyle members are chosen in no 
way warrants the authority arrogated to the society. a. Most 
often a ruling clic|ue prepares a successor ruling clique both of 
which find their focus in Gargoyle. This year's delegation with 
its "dean's team " plus the gentlemen who have no o|5inion and say 



Nathan Rudnick produced effects ranging from "harpischord to 'ts dean s team plus the ,,,„., 

barren bouse. Mrs. Gifford's costumes were everywhere strikinir """""« ™,i'«^« >ts prc^decessors and foretells its successors. 

Also, tor this reason a strong man such as the tremendously 
respected President of the senior class or the former President of 
the FTC may be passed over, esjiecially if he doesn't stand in well 



and apt. but especially in the group of Comniedia dell 'arte players 
who swept across the stage in pantomimic previews of the action 
to follov\'. These episodes, arranged by |oI Oherly, were always 
retreshing to the eye, if occasionally obscure to the imdeistanding. 
,\nd they were nicely executed by a troupe whose individual iden- 
tities 1 could not determine, owing to their effective concealment 
under the imaginative masks devised by Regiiar Plesner. Frank 
Trapp's setting provided an arena for the action ( which Moliere 
seems not to have cared about ) but lacked the elan which we have 
come to expect from him. 

Where all have striven so valiantly, acting credits are hard to 
allot. But mention must be made of Francis Schell's livelv and au- 
thentic low-comedy jierformance of Sganarelle; of Bravton Red- 
ecker's Dom Juan (not c]uite hard enough, however); of Betsy 
Stoddard's thoroughly engaging and vital Charlotte; and of [ohii 
CJarfield's Pierrot. In the lesser roles, everybcKly doubled 



with the senior clicpie or if he's not so strong for the ideas of the 
dean and his s(|uad. 

b. Some fraternities receive far more attention on the fence 
than others; at times this practice seems unwarranted by the rela- 
tive calibre of men in the various fraternities, But the 20 or fewer 
Gargoyle members simply know much better far more brothers in 
a certain group of the fraternities and naturally automatically 
choose many more successors from this grou]5. This is ]5articularly 
poisonous in a deferred rushing system and helps to stratify the 
fraternities. 

c. Further, selection from officers of certain organizations 
such as the WCC and RECORD has become automatic. This prac- 
tice sheds an unfair shadow over other organizations as WMS, 
Adelphic Union, AMT, and the Gul which are just as important 



not. In the lesser roles, everybcKly doubled in brass 
and one can only single out those who brought the stage to life j and work just as hard hut have no such automatic entree,

.3. Gargoyle, "bulwark of good values", has become the 
mainstay of a false \'alue system which ]iressures many fundamen- 
tally fine peojile to don some very shoddy garb. 

The organization yearly, as much as any other as]iect of Wil- 
liams life, helps to perpetuate a value system demanding in part 
or in toto, an ever-smiling front, a casual air, little exjDression of any 
controversial or argumentative opinions publicly, a search for 
honors, titles and offices — the Gargoyle candidacy. Perhaps, this 
is the worst indictment that we can bring against the secret honor 
society, the value system's mainstay in recent years.

TherE are good reasons why Spalding's tennis twins are used in more 
major tennis lournameius than all oilier tennis hall.i combined. 

Top players want a tennis ball that can take rough treatment . . . 
and give uniform performance set after set. They pick the Spalding 
and the Spalding-made Wright & Ditson over all others for uniform 
wear and better bounce qualities. 

Put the best ball in play for your best game. The pick of top tennis 
men . . . Spalding's famous tennis twins. 

Your dealer has them now. 



se- 
crecy, a holdover from hocus pocus 
days, paradoxically Gargoyle is 
largely prevented from shedding 
any of its fine Williams "spirit" 
of supposed wisdom on the rest 
of the student body. 

Most students, because of this 
secrecy and lack of regard for 
their opinions, are skeptically un- 
interested or ridiculers and rebels 
against the well-grown, picked 
before-hand ruling clique; favor- 
ed organizations and fraternities 
— the Gargoyle candidacies. 

The Williams spirit Gargoyle 
should foster according to its stat- 
ed purposes, the interest in pro- 
posals of great benefit for the 
school that it should promote re- 
ceive little boost from the secrecy- 
veiled organization. 

And, in large part, the students, 
who hear little about Gargoyle de- 
liberations, ideas, and proposals, 
come to regard the organization 
mainly as an honor for the sake 
of show (at times passed on to 
unworthy persons and refused 
worthy meni and/or an object of 
ridicule iwhat so many think on 
tapping day). 

Hence, Gargoyle's prestige has 
waned among the students in large 
part, and with that prestige the 
admirable ideal of dedication to 
Williams the society was estab- 
lished to epitomize.

Wednesday, April 20'- 'rhoiifi;li it pioducfd only ono \ict()iy, 
the recent swinj^ through the sunny southliuul did tlie i;pli hiiseball 
team loads ol good, Coaeii Bobby Coombs said today. C-oonibs was 
especially pleased with the o\er-all hitting ot the team, wliieli had 
a .274 a\ erage for the si.\ game trip. 

Williams went down south without having had a chance to 
get in any practice outdoors, be-

ing conlined to the cage by the 
weather. When the Ephmen took 
the field for the fiist game, the 
llelders hadn't had a chance to 
catch either fhes or grounders, the 
pitchers hadnt thrown to baiters, 
and no one had had a chance to 
hit a pitched ball. "I would liate 
to have to play my first six games 
looking the way we did down 
south," Coombs said. "The trip 
got us into condition and gave the 
boys a chance to play some ball." 
lie added. 

Defeat Belmont-Abbey 

Williams lost its first two con- 
tests to Elon College in North Car- 
olina on successive days by 11-1 
and 11-2 scores. In the first game, 
Elon got seven runs in the eighth 
inning off relief hurler Ned Hep- 
penstall. Tom Yankus started and 
went five innings before being re- 
placed by Bob Newey. Together 
they gave up only three hits, but 
Yankus was wild in the initial 
frame, giving up two runs. Char- 
lie Shaw started the second game 
and was relieved by Dick Flood. 
Leftfielder Charlie Freeman got a 
double and two singles in five 
trips to the plate. 

The third game with Davidson 
was cancelled. But behind good 
hitting, Williams won its only 
game of the trip by defeating 
Belmont-Abbey 13-10. Don McLean 
pitched and exhibited good con- 
trol. Williams jumped off to a 3-0 
lead in the first and built it up 
to a 10-2 margin in the eighth. 
The Ephs got three more runs in 
the ninth. Freeman had four 
RBI's on two hits, John Hatch 
got three hits, Muggsy Ames got 
3 RBI's on two hits, and Jack 
Henderson got two hits. 
Lose Three 

Giving up 20 walks and com- 
mitting six errors, the Ephs lost 
a heartbreaker to Guilford 14-11, 
even though outhitting the vic- 
tors n-6. Yankus and Newey each 
walked ten. Dick Ennis went five 
for six at the plate. Hatch went 
thi'ee for five, Dick Fearon went 
one for two with a home run, and 
Clarke Sperry went one for two 
with a triple. 

Two Losses 

Richmond swamped the Ephs 
12-3 on 17 hits, getting 12 off 
starter Shaw in five innings. Flood 
completed the game. Hatch went 
two for four to keep his average 
at .500. In their last game the 
Ephs were beaten 12-3 by Upsala 
as they were held hitless for the 
first five innings.

Two Spring Wins 

Trip Through South 
Affords Experience 



Wednesday, April 20 - The var- 
sity golf team compiled a two and 
three record on its practice trip 
through the South this spring va- 
cation. The golfers played four of- 
ficial matches, winning two and 
losing two, one unofficial match 
which was lost, and another match 
which was rained out at the end 
of ten holes. 

The players competed In three 
states. North Carolina, Virginia 
and Delaware on their ten day 
tour. Lack of practice before va- 
cation had not given the team high 
hopes lor an impressive won-lost 
record for the trip which was in- 
tended mainly for experience. The 
team begain playing well only in 
the last few matches. 

Lose Three 

The team lost to Davidson Col- 
lege of Davidson, North Carolina, 
the Hope Valley Country Club of 
Durham, North Carolina, and Har- 
vard University, and defeated Cat- 
awba College of Salisbury, North 
Carolina, and the Quantico Mar- 
ines at Quantico, Virginia. The 
men who made the trip were, in 
order of their ranking, John Geh- 
ret, Randy Carey, Jack Chapman, 
Bill Chapman, Terry White, Gary 
Symington, Jack Jakubowski and 
Bruce Lockhart. Reb Foster, fresh- 
man ace, also made the trip and 
filled in for Carey who played 
only in the Harvard match. 

The team practiced only three 
days before meeting Harvard on 
the Pinehurst, North Carolina, 
Country Club's number two course. 
On Thursday the team travelled 
to the Salisbury Country Club 
where it completely overpowered 
the Catawba College team, 25)3 to 
1!-. Every man won except Jack 
Chapman, who split. 

On Friday the goiters lost to 
Davidson at Salisbury by 17 to 10. 
The Hope Valley team beat the 
golfers by 20 to 7, and on Monday, 
April 11, the Ephmen edged the 
Quantico team, 15 1/2 to 14 1/2.

Basketball Squad Chooses Buss, Jensen 
As Co-captains for 1955-1956 Campaign 



Thursday, March 31 - In a let 
termen's meeting tonight Wally 
Jensen and Bob Buss were chosen 
co-captains of Al Shaw's 1955-56 
basketball team. On the starting 
five of this year's Williams squad 
which won 17 and lost only one 
in the regular season and went on 
to represent New England in the 
NCAA tournament, both boys were 
key factors in the success of the 
best Purple cage team in history. 

Playing guard along with sopho- 
more Bill CuUen, the 5' 11" Jensen 
sparked the Ephmen all through 
the season with his slick ball- 
handling and great competitive 
spirit. Especially outstanding in 
such crucial contests as Dart- 
mouth and Springfield, the Eph 
backcourt ace scored more than 
200 points which placed him third 
in team scoring with a 13 point 
per game average. 

Jensen "Sparkplug" 

Besides scoring consistently with 
his one-hander from the outside 
and deadly jump shot around the 



Q- 



foul circle. Jensen was described 
by Coach Shaw as his "take charge 
player" who took the ball up 
court and set up the potent Eph 
offense. Captain of his freshman 
team and a varsity letterman last 
season, Jensen is also a varsity 
tennis star and is a member of 
Delta Upsilon Fraternity. 

Lanky Bob Buss at six foot tliree 
is also an experienced player who 
showed well consistently in his 
forward position for Coach Shaw. 
Third in the rebounding depart- 
ment, the loose, slender junior 
also accounted for 12 points a 
game with his varied shots on the 
Inside. Coach Shaw rated Buss 
his most improved player refer- 
ring most to his smooth playmak- 
ing and fine outside shot. 

However. Buss' versatility is not 
limited to the basketball floor as 
he maintains a Dean's List aver- 
age and serves as a Junior Advisor. 
He is a member ot Theta Delta 
Chi Fraternity.

Wednesday, April 20 - The Wil- 
liams tennis team opens its sea- 
son officially the day after to- 
morrow, April 22, against Bow- 
doin here on the home courts. The 
Eph racquet wlelders are heavily 
favored to top the Polar Bears 
whom they have never lost to 
over many seasons o£ competition. 

Coach Chaffee will probably 
hand in a starting slate of Bill 
CuUen, Wally Jensen, George Ke- 
sel, Lou Bortnick, Howie Patter- 
son, and Mac Fiske lor the sin- 
gles. Cullen and Patterson were the 
standouts of the freshman team 
last year, and the other four are 
seasoned varsity performers. In 
the doubles, Williams will probably 
send in the three teams of Cul- 
len and Kesel, Bortnick and Jen- 
sen, and Patterson and Ben Ox- 
nard. 

According to Coach Chaffee, the 
squad shapes up as a stronger 
team than last year. The singles 
players are better and there is 
more team depth than on the 
team which did very well in east- 
ern competition a year ago. The 
main difficulty seems to be in the 
doubles. If the doubles combina- 
tions come through the way in 
which they might, the Eph net- 
men will be a real collegiate ten- 
nis power. 



VJhai young people are doing at General Electric 



Young manager 

handles finances 

for building of 

$5,000,000 plant 



In the next ten years, the demand for General 
Electric industrial heating equipment will 
double. To meet this demand, a giant new 
plant (model at right) is being built at 
Shelbyville, Indiana. 

The plant will cost $5,000,000, and the 
man responsible for handling finances for 
the entire job is 32-year-old R. E. Fetter. 

Fetter's job is important, responsible 

Dick Fetter's work as Financial Manager of 
the Department began long before General 
Electric started building the plant. He and 
his group first had to estimate probable op- 
erating costs and predict whether the plant 
would be profitable. 

Now, during construction, Fetter's chief 
concern is keeping track of all the expenses 
on this multimillion-dollar project. When 
the plant is completed, he will set up a 
complete financial section and manage 
everything from tax, cost, and general ac- 
counting to payrolls, budgets and measure- 
ments, and internal auditing. 

25,000 coliege graduates at General Electric 

This is a big job. Fetter was readied for it 
in a careful step-by-stcp program of devel- 
opment. Like Fetter, each of the 25,000 col- 
lege-graduate employees is given his chance 
to grow, to find the work he does best, and 
to realize his full potential. For General 
Electric has long believed this: When young, 
fresh minds are given freedom to make prog- 
ress, everybody benefits — the individual, the 
company, and the country.

Outstanding Career 



Wednesday, April 20 - Tony 
Moro, co-captain of this year's 
outstanding Williams basketball 
team that was the New England 
representative to the NCAA re- 
Kiunal tournament in New York, 
was recently chosen by the Mil- 
waukee Hawks of the National 
Basketball A.ssociatlon as their 
eighth draft choice. The graceful 
Eph .star was one of the three 
players in the New England area 
chosen by the professional league, 
Art Quimby and Jim Ahearn of 
Connecticut being the only other 
players honored. 

Planning to enter law school, 
Moro will not accept the offer of 
the Hawks, but receiving a bid 
from a professional team is an 
indication of the fine caliber 
of his basketball. Outstanding 
throughout his four years, the 
Williams' star climaxed his career 
with superb performances in his 
final two games against Amherst 
and Canisius. In the Little Three 
championship contest with Am- 
herst. Moro sparked the Eph se- 
cond half rally to overtake the 
Lord Jeffs. Against Canisius the 
lanky senior put on a fantastic 
show, tallying 27 points and snag- 
ging 17 rebounds.

Wednesday, April 20 - Coach 
Clarence Chaffee's varsity ten- 
nis team had a reasonably suc- 
cessful spring trip against some 
excellent competition. The team 
compiled an overall mark of two 
wins and four losses. The trip 
settled the singles personnel, but 
left the doubles pairs undecided. 

The trip opened at Williams- 
burg. Virginia on Monday. April 4 
against WiUiam and Mary. The 
Williams team won easily 8-1, al- 
though they had had only one day

Wednesday. April 20 - Seeking 
its ninth win of a .series which be- 
gan in 1883. the Williams baseball 
team opens the season against 
Bowdoin Friday on Weston Field. 
Coach Bobby Coombs had not de- 
cided on a starting lineup at press 
time due to several injuries on the 
squad and close battles for most 
of the positions. Last year, the 
Purple knocked off the Polar 
Bears, 4-1. on a brilliant one-hit- 
ter by Steve Howe. 

The Maine club has won five 
ball games in 13 previous meet- 
ings with Williams. Their most re- 
cent triumph over the Coombsmen 
was in 1953. when Bowdoin slug- 
ged its way to a 13-2 victory. Un- 
like Williams, the visitors did not 
make a southern trip this spring. 
Yankus May Pitch 
Suffering from a sore shoulder 
during the close of the spring trip, 
Tom Yankus will probably get the 
starting pitching assignment it he 
is ready by game time. As a so- 
phomore, he compiled an impres- 
sive 1.30 earned run average and 
fanned 41 batters in 53 1/3 inn- 
ings. Yankus' 3-5 record for the 
1954 campaign does not indicate 
his real effectiveness, for lack of 
hitting cost him several close con- 
tests. 

Charlie Shaw. Ned Heppenstall. 
Dick Flood or Don McLean may 
be on the hill against the Bruns- 
wick, Maine team if Yankus does- 
n't pitch. Either Gary Leinbach or 
sophomore George Welles will be 
behind the plate. Clarke Sperry 
and Dick Marr are fighting for 
the starting first base assignment.

THE WILLIAMS RECORD, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 20, 1955 



Bill Danaher Relates Experiences 



la- 



in billiards and 30 in pool, a feat 
which makes our Student Union 
cue-sharps gasp. 

Thirty years ago, says Bill, pool 
and billiards were the main form 
of recreation for Williams men. 
Instead of congregating at the 
houses or in the Student Union, 
they got together in the pool 
halls. They took the game much 
more seriously then also. There 
was much more interest in bil- 
liards than in pool, because the 
former is considered more a game 
of skill. According to Bill, no pool 
players ever stooped to "slop" or 
"rotation", but stuck to a game 
which is unknown today called 
"Kelly's Pool." 

Gambling Common 

The caliber of play was higher 
then tor still another reason — 
pool and billiards were serious 
gambling games, and any duffer 
who ventured to play had to have 
a fat wallet. Any gambling charges 
were over and above the house 
charge of 60 cents an hour for bil- 
liards and $1.00 an hour for pool. 

Williams men gathered at 
these Spring Street pool parlors 
for other reasons than to play 
pool. One of these hangouts, 
which was run by Clyde Bemis, set 
up a tickertape machine to relay 
a play-by-play of all the away 
football games. Since there were 
not many automobiles then and 
there was no college radio sta- 
tion, nearly the whole College us- 
ed to come down and jam the 
store, says Bill. And that was the 
era when Williams had nation- 
ally ranked teams and ail-Ameri- 
can players, like Charlie Boyn- 
ton, '28. 

Exhibitions of Fool and Billiards 

Every year there used to be a 
series of exhibitions by pool and 
billiards professionals, which drew 
crowds of several hundred. Even 
Willie Hoppe, the recognized all- 
time champion, once gave an ex- 
hibition in Williamstown. The 
same Charles Peterson who gave a 
show in the Student Union ear- 
lier this year gave an exhibition 
30 years ago. Some of the other 
big names which Bill reeled off 
are Sutton the Armless Wonder, 
who played with hooks instead of 
hands, and Ruth McGinnls, the 
Woman's Champion of the World. 

In those days, there were no 
clothing stores in Williamstown, 
and the pool halls filled even this 
need. The big clothing stores from 
out of town, such as J. Press of 
New Haven, and A. Starr Best of 
Chicago, made a practice of send- 
ing up "drummers" to drum up 
college business. They always held 
their sales in the pool parlors. 

When the boys wanted to cash 
a check or buy a package of ci- 
garettes (for 15 cents, then), they 
always came to the pool halls, ex- 



plains Bill. Each pool-hall had its 
own soda fountain too. To make 
it even easier to spend money, all 
the parlors allowed charge ac- 
counts. But, as Bill says, there 
was more money to spend hi those

Meeting Investigates 
Tocqueville's Book 



Tuesday, March 29 - Another 
of a series of great books discus- 
sions was held tonight at Grif- 
fin Hall. Two members of the Phi 
Beta Kappa Society, Jim Colberg 
and Bob Mirak, as well as two re- 
presentatives from the faculty, 
Mr. Simpson and Mr. Burns, talk- 
ed on the merits of a nineteenth 
analysis of American democracy, 
Alexis de Tocqueville's "Democ- 
racy in America". 

The talks were begun by Jim 
Colberg who briefly summarized 
Tocqueville's life as well as going 
into the author's impressions upon 
visiting the United States for the 
first time. 

Tocqueville's Forsight Praised 

Next Mr. Burns spoke, explain- 
ing that, although Tocqueville's 
analysis was at times superficial, 
it redeemed itself by the very rea- 
son of its scope. Bob Mirak next 
took the floor and continued to 
speak on this theme of Tocque- 
ville's forsight. He emphasized the 
fact that the author predicted the 
rise of democracy in other coun- 
tries after he had observed it 
working here. 

Concluding the formal discus- 
sions, Mr. Simpson of the politi- 
cal science department cited 
Tocqueville's virtues as an his- 
torian. 



ton expressed doubt that Yalta 
could be used by either party as 
an "example of incompetence". 
He criticized the way the papers 
were released and failed to see 
how the Republican Party could 
possibly hold it up as an example 
of Democratic blundering. On the 
other hand, he also did not think 
the Democratic Party would be 
able to tell the public that it was 
an example of genius. 

Burns Giad Papers Released 
Professor Burns expressed glad- 
ness over the release of the Yalta 
Papers and hoped that the De- 
mocrats would inject the release 
of the papers into the 1956 elec- 
tion campaign. "We (the Demo- 
crats) should point to It as a mat- 
ter of pride", stated the Williams 
Political Scientist. On the same 
score, he felt that foreign policy 
should be partisan in order not to 
confuse the American People and 
the rest of the world. 

Burns condemned the Demo- 
crats for letting the Republicans 
"pose as the peace party". "We 
should go back to diplomacy and 
conferences with our allies as well 
as enemies" Burns said. In his 
conclusion he went back to the 
days of the war and noted the 
number of American G.I. lives 
that would have been lost in a 
land attack on Japan and stressed 
the need for Russian aid. The Yal- 
ta agreement made for a quick 
end of the war. 

Salvadori — "Circumstances 
Forced Yalta" 
Professor Salvadori of Benning- 
ton and Smith Colleges emphati- 
cally stated that "circumstances 
forced Yalta" and said that the 
agreement "cannot be criticized". 
He also added the danger of try- 
ing to dig up the past and analyze 
in regard to present knowledge. 
This is history by hindsight. 
"When a question of action a- 
rises. we cannot follow a straight 
line." He raised the question of 
"How many people knew when 
the war would end?" "Did Chur- 
chill, Roosevelt or Stalin know?" 
"Perhaps it was a mistake, but 
circumstances forced it," con- 
cluded Professor Salvadori.

Wednesday, April 20 - An ex- 
hibition entitled "The Romantic 
and Victorian Periods in English 
Literature" is being shown in the 
Chapin Library through May 6. 
The exhibition, arranged primari- 
ly for English 20, included many 
first editions of famous works of 
prose and poetry. 

The chief works of the literary 
masters of the 18th and 19th cen- 
turies — Dickens, Gray, Coleridge, 
Wordsworth, Burns, Shelley, Keats, 
Byron — are presented for the 
most part in valuable fu'st edi- 
tions, and in some cases even first 
and second issues. An original 
copy of Robert Burns' Poems 
Chiefly in the Scottish Dialect, for 
instance, now brmgs a price of 
$2700, though the immortal poet 
received only 20 pounds for his 
labors. 

Of particular interest is a copy 
of Chaucer's works printed by the 
Kelmscott Press. William Morris, 
famous Socialist and founder of 
the Press, wished to revive the old 
standards of printing. Though at 
the time many people thought his 
method of printing anachronistic, 
the book is now often referred to 
as "the most splendid book ever 
printed". 

Freshmen . . . 

Larry Nilsen, president of the 
Class of '58, is chairman of the 
dance committee. Assisting him 
are Jerry Putnam, Dave Wood, 
Karl Schoeller, Whitey Kaufman, 
Pete Verstappen, Prank Tokioka, 
Steve Cartwright and Fred Clif- 
ford. "Don't Flick it — Flake it!" 
is the committee's advice. 

Other overall Houseparty plans 
include an all-school dance with 
two orchestras in Baxter Hall Fri- 
day evening May 6. Attire will be 
semi- formal (Cocktail dress for 
women, suit or sport coat and tie 
for men). 



Baseball . . . 

next year's co-captain, Ed Liau- 
ben, and halfback Dick Fearon, 
battle it out for the regular spot 
at the hot corner. 

Captain Mugg.sy Ames, the 
team's leading liitter last season 
is back in center field while Herb 
Ladds, Dick Ennls and Charlie 
Freeman are the top candidates 
for the other two posts. Freeman 
collected two of the Epliraen's ten 
hits against Bowdoln last spring. 

Strong Mound Staff 

With tlie return of seven let- 
termen, the only weakness of 
Coach Dan MacFayden's Polar 
Bear nine is lack of depth. The 
Bowdoin mound corps is loaded 
with fast ball hurlers and even 
boasts a knuckle ball pitcher, a 
rarity among college teams. Mike 
Coster is the number one back- 
stop and lieading the pitching de- 
partment are veterans Hal An- 
thony, this year's captain, Fred 
Coukas, and Lee Dyer. 

The infield has Ron Harris or 
Anthony slated for first base with 
John Libby and Bob Kreider as 
the probable keystone combina- 
tion. Pete Rigby is back on third 
base. The outfield will be made 
up of pitchers not on the hill 
that day.

truths need not be universally ug- 
cepted but can be personal con- 
victions. Truths such as these arc 
identical with the beliefs Jesu.s 
held in God. Jesus did not aban- 
don his beliefs even IhouBli 
tempted by Satan since they were 
to him truth. Truth must nevi'i- 
be deserted. Some people have to 
enKage in actions that attack tlu-u- 
beliefs but the truths will survive. 
Other people consider themselves 
exceptions to the truth when they 
actually are not.

sections still outstanding. 282 un- 
dergraduates have received a total 
of 584 warnings on their work so 
far this spring. The results of the 
totals show a marked Improvement 
over last semester when 403 un-

612 warnings, but are fairly poor 
when compared with last spring 
at which time 346 students re-

Monday. April 18 - The Execu- 
tive Committee of the Student Ac- 
tivities Council met in Baxter 
Hall this afternoon to di.scuss sev- 
eral matters referred to them by 
the SAC and the pressing finan- 
cial condition of the 1954 GUL. 
Chip Mann '56. president of the 
SAC. presided at the meeting. 

John Newhall '55. business man- 
ager of the 1954 GUL. noted that 
the yearbook incurred unexpected 
expenses over and above contiact 
expenditures and that the bill 
for these expenses has not yet 
been paid. He compared the situ- 
ation with the 1953 GUL which 
also was unable to meet expendi- 
tures. The independent nature of 
successive GUL staffs, the present 
and past staff and financial set- 
ups, and .suggestions for improve- 
ment of the situation were con- 
sidered in a discussion which fol- 
lowed. Mr. Bowen. faculty adviser

"The noon day chapel Is spon-

pel to provide a place and time 
for relaxation, rest and worship 
during the busy academic week. 
It is calculated to be a quiet rest-

Tony Fisher when he was asked 
to comment on the Daily Chapel,

fessor of music, presented a solo 
P'iano concert at Chapin Hall. 
Tlie Department of Music spon- 
sored the concert. 

The program featured three of 
the better-known works from the 
standard repertory. The "Con- 
certo in the Italian Style." by 
Johann Sebastian Bach, is a vir- 
tually unique transferral of the 
Baroque Period Concerto to a solo 
'keyboard instrument, and it also 
foreshadows several important as- 
pects of later developments in 
musical form. The Beethoven 
"Sonata in F Minor", commonly 
called the "Appassionata," is one 
of the three or four most famous 
sonatas by this composer and is 
celebrated for its almost con- 
.stant degree of emotional inten- 
sity and for the length and scope 
of its musical thought. 

Mozart's "Sonata in A Major" 
is also one of the three or four 
best known sonatas of the com- 
poser. Its last movement, a ron- 
do in Turkish style, has been 
played extensively as a separate 
piece, and is a highly original 
combination of the Mozartian 
style. Concluding the concert. 
Profes.sor Nollner gave a short 
work by the 20th century com- 
poser. Bela Bartok. the "Sona- 
tina" for piano. 

Mr. Nollner conducts the Wil- 
liams Glee Club, in addition to 
teaching music. He studied piano 
privately in San Francisco with 
Pliyllida Ashley and Benjamin 
j Moore. In the latter part of 1945 
Mr. Nollnpi- took the Fellow's 
I Diploma in Piano at Trinity Col- 
lege of Music in London.

Eating Club System 



In addition to the council plan discu.sscd la.st i.ssuc, there is 
yet another system which iiiij^ht help to facilitate total membership 
here at Williams. .-Mthough it would not be put into effect until 
after the end of the official fall rushinj; period and until after the 
actual start of classes, the Wesleyan Eating Club system mis^ht also 
lead esentually to the time when all who wish to join fraternities 
will be members. 

The greatest weakness with rushing in the freshman year was 
that often hasty judgements were made by the fraternities who 
could not really get to know the rushees. Deferred rushing has 
helped to eliminate this situation but even now as a result of the 
relative se])aration of the freshmen from the rest of the campus, 
judgements still often have to be made concerning rushees who 
are not reallv known by the house members. 

According to the Wesleyan Eating Club system, non-frateniity 
members will be invited to eat meals in the houses, and these 
students will be able to enjov the social facilities of one fraternity 
and then after a while accept the invitation of another for a few 
weeks. A student will be able to go to several houses if extended 
invitations or he inav stay for several months at one house if in- 
N'ited back bv its members. 

The advantages of such a system are obvious. Too often in the 
|)ast judgements have been made on rushees merely according to 
their looks, or the way thev tie their tie, or the kind of shirt they 
wear. This eating club system will give the houses a chance to really 
get to know a student and will also let the student decide intelli- 
gently whether or not he would be happy in a particular house. 

As with the council i^lan, this too will depend upon the willing- 
ness of the fraternities to give it a fair trial. Without their coopera- 
tion neither system will work. Every year there is talk of getting 
the administration or the freshmen to take ste]5s to enforce total 
membership. Here are two opportunities for the houses to gain 
this worthwhile aim easily and volimtarily.

C:liuek went to Sim Valley. Phil enjoved skiing at Aspen. I'ete 
Jack, and inanv others staved with their family at home having 
parties and dates. A few lay sunbathing on the beaches of Bermuda, 
not alone, of course. Several seniors met government oflieials and 
.saw the eherrv blossom in Washington, D. C. — You all had vonr 
spring vacation. Weren't they too short though? 

Why don't vou study in (lermany, at lionii Univi'rsity for in- 
stance? Your sjiring vacation will include the months of March and 
April. Happy, happy days! 

Y'ou mean there are no American students at Bonn University? 
For sure! 1 know these American Knlbriglit scholars very well 
from coinses, chats in the "Erfrischuugsraiim", the snack-bar in 
the university, and common parties. They are all bright people. 

As to their s])ring vacation, they reallv took advantage of their 
tinte. Having bought a second hantl car, Ed and Clhuek went travel- 
ing through Italy, France and Spain. Bill started off lor Athens, 
Greece. Cathleen (Mt. Holyoke '54) divided her vacation in a per- 
iod for studies and travel to Spain and Portugal. 

You see what you can do with your spring vacation in Cer- 
maiiy! My intention, however, is not to cau.se riots hir an extension 
of the spring recess at the Williams cami)ns, nor do 1 pledge mass 
student emigration to Germany. The latter yon may try in your 
summer-time. But 1 thought it might interest you what German 
their sm 
le acade 
as compared to American colleges and nni\frsities 

I should not say "academic year" as relating to CJennaii uni- 
versities since it is the semester that counts for the German students. 
The academic year is only of importance for die oflice period ot the 
elected Bector (the head of the university) and the Deans (heads 
of the departments). As the years go we have winter semesters 
and summer semesters. The winter semester runs from November 
to the end of February. March and April are s]iring vacation. We 
start the summer semester with May and finish with the end of 
[uly. We enjoy the summer from August to the end ot October. 
Thus, we were all the year round. Whether one starts one's study 
with the winter semester or the summer semester does not mak<' any 
difference at imiversities. One always starts with the winter semes- 
ter at an institute of technology. 

To achieve your prospected degree yon study a minimum num- 
ber of semesters and further until you feel enabled to take the ex- 
aminations. The professors do their lecturing and teaching only 
during the semester. But for the students, stuuving should not sto)) 
during the vacations. Therefore it is an illusion to think that one 
just enjoys these long recesses. One may do it, but it may be diffi- 
cult if one intends to finish university some day with any degree. 

Now, what are German students doing during spring vacation? 
About fifty per cent of all students usually ha\e to work to earn 
their tuition and li\ing maintenance. At Bonn University many 
students try to get jobs in the government administration and ad- 



students do during their .sjiring vacation, why we have such long 
breaks, and how the academic year runs at German nni\'ersities

This situation of .so many students working dining all tliri, 
vacations does not correspond with the purpose and l)ulld-u|i ,,1 
the (Jerman academic system. This time is meant h)r further stuclv- 
ing and reseaich. A gooil part of the students do so. 

When you visit the luiiversitv buildings at this time, you v,\\\ 
not find them completely deserleil by the students. There arc slill 
many stiuU'uts aroimd in the libraries and dillerenl institutes. Sonic

their particular field of study. The icadiug .American students dci 
for their a.ssigmnents along with the syllabus is done here mainly 
during vacation, since there are no reijuired readings along \ulli 

the lectm-es. Many regret this siluatl because the students Ijstin 

to lectmes of high academic (|nallly without an midcrstandini; nf 
the material offered. 

This leads to the hict that most law students manage ouK Ut

in a way that gets to the student, lie works outside the univerMh', 
and he knows the keys to pass the lough exams. His courses mn 
also during the vacations. 

Science students keep iiu experimenting In the laboratoui's 
for their studies and on researcli projects. Medical students ni.iy 
help in hospitals (without pay, though) (hiring the recess. 

So hir, 1 often have mentioned study and work. Nevertheless, 
we students also try to enjoy a good share ol our vacation. One may 
just have a short do-nothing-lime at home. It sounds belter, liowi\ - 
er, to travel a little. Thus, many a student may go skiing In the .\l|is.

frosh Nine Practices for RPl Opener; 
Team Possesses Hitting, Pitching Potential 

Satmcliiy, April 2.} - With a week still left bcloiv tlicir onciiiiii' 
HaiiK' against Hl'L tlic Ircshiuaii ha.schall Icaui contiiiiK's to show 
the potential whifli should lead them tlirouuli a very sucti'ssliil 
season. Thirty-two ycarliiij^s repoiled tor practice, and in the past 
two weeks Coaches l.eii Watters and Nels Corey have tried to mold 
the s(piad into a working; nnlt. 

Many players lia\c lieen outstanding in early practice, but 
with the pitchers still holiliiiH hack, it is irnpossihle to jiidjjc jnsl 
how good the hitting really is. First base seems to be die hi)^ prob- 
lem lor the Wattersiner], with liill Taggert weak at the plate, and 
lerry Carney, Joel I'oltcr, and Don Olson all atteniptinji the spot 
liir tlie first time. Carney, originally a catchei, is an excellent bitter, 
and will nndonbtcdlv start soiiicwhere on the scpiad. At second, 
Dick Lombard is lar ahead ol the field. His f;ood hitting and field- 
ing sbonld help tbe IresbuK'n tbronj;hont the y<'ar. 
Ifirstni, I'ditcr I'lai/ Sliorl 

At short is a close battle between Hob Iverson and Kick Power. 
Only outside competition can decide which of these fine ballplayers 
willstart this year. Third also featnics two fjood jiieii in Kd Hughes 
ami .Matt Oonner. Roth arc fine fielders and capable of hittini; the 
long ball, l.cailing tbe cainlidatcs b)r the outfield are center fielder 
W'hitey Kaufman and Jim Stevens. Kaufman can not only field and 
hit well, but has one of tbe best arms on tbe team, winle Stc\cns' 
liilting has been impressive. Potter, an occasional lon^ ball bitter, 
and Fred Parsons and dm llotchbcrf; aic the other potential 
starters. 

The battery will undoiibtedK' be composed of Marv Wein- 
stein behind the plate and Paul Zavorskas on tbe mound. Wein- 
slrin has an c.vcelleut arm, and althonj^h so far unimpressive at the 
plate, is a fine catcher. Zavorskas, altbouf^b still not allowed to 
throw at full speed, is tbe team's best prospect. With nndonhtedlv 
more poise and a better selection of pitches than arjvone on the 
.s(|nad, he will be the v<'arlini;s' leadini; pitcher. Behind bini are 
Crawford lilagden, Tom Livingston, Dick .\lti\'eh, and |ohn Hnek- 

So far control is still lacking from the pitchinj.; staff. Harrinj; 
this should be an excellent Ireshmau team.

Shaw plays its first contest a- 
Hainst outside competition. 

From all Indications, after two 
weeks of practice the squad looks 
as thoUBh It may be stronger than 
the usual freshman lacrosse 
teams at Williams. With experi- 
enced first stringers, sufficient 
depth and hustle. Coach Shaw has 
an able squad to work with. Com- 
peting for the first string goalie 
position are Dave Andrews, who 
also plays attack, and Duke Ber- 
gendahl. Denny Doyle and John 
Ross also may see action in this 
position. 

The attack position looks to be 
one of the strongest on the team 
with both experience and speed. 
Joel Gieeley, an outstanding 
stickhandler, Rog Southall, and 
Bill Weaver have been working 
well together so far as the stall-

Saturday, April 23 - Fresh from 
its trip through the .south the var- 
sity tennis team plays host to 
Brown today at 2 p.m. This is the 
.second match for the Ephs, while 
the Bruins have had three others, 
one of which was a 6-4 loss to 
Amherst. 

Bruin Captain Doc Houk pre- 
sents formidable opposition at 
number one. Houk, who has lost 
but three matches in college com- 
petition, last year defeated Cap- 
tain George Kesel in straight sets. 
However, Williams went on to 
win the match, 6-3. 

New Men for Brown 
On the adjacent court to the 
one on which Houk and sopho- 
more Bill Cullen will battle it out, 
Williams basketball co-captain 
elect, Wally Jensen, will take on 
George Kilpatrick, a junior back 
aftei' four years in the air force. 
Playing number three for the 
visitors is Nat Green, number one 
man for the freshmen two years 
ago. but ineligible last season. He 
may be a bit surprised to learn 
he will face Captain Kesel, the 
first man the previous spring. 
Other matches 
Rounding out the Brown line-up 
will be Joe Simpson, Don and Ian 
Sinclair, Phil Mehler, or Webster 
Ray. Barring any test match re- 
sults that could change the situa- 
tion, Williams will have Lou Bort- 
nick, Howie Patterson, and Mac 
Fiske at four, five, and .six posi- 
tions respectively. The doubles 
combinations are as yet undecid- 
ed. 

Next Wednesday the Chaffee- 
men travel to Boston to meet 
MIT. The Beavers are usually 
relatively weak, but this year 
boast of five returning lettermen 
in Larry Mo.ss, Don Steig, Rene 
Mendes de Leeon, Gil Strang, 
and Captain Al Hahn.

Saturday, April 23 - After a 
successful spring trip, the Wil- 
liams varsity track team opens 
its regular season today at Mid- 
dlebury's Porter Field. The Pur- 
ple have excellent depth in the 
lOO, 220, and broad jump. Com- 
peting in these events will be; 
Captain Bob Behr, who broke the 
college 220 record last year with 
a 21.33 time. Andy Smith and 
Bill Scoble, who both led the 
freshmen last year. Middlebury 
will have Captain Bob Webb and 
Florio Lavin in these dash events. 
Hagerman, Raynsford in 440, 880 

George Hagerman, the winter 
track captain, and Bob Rayns- 
ford. a member of the winter re- 
lay team, will handle the 440 and 
880 along with Behr. In the mile 
and iwo mile events. Williams 
will enter Ted Oviatt, Sam For- 
tenbaugh. Jim Hecker and Hotz 
Ports. Pete Redman and Brooks 
Dodd. two returning lettermen, 
will be the men on whom Mid- 
dlebury will depend in these e- 
vents. 

Berry, Fall in Shot 

Jack Moxley, Jeff Smythe, Jay 
Wilson and Don Tufts will re- 
present Williams in the 100 yard 
and 220 hurdles. Williams should 
do well in the field events. Ding 
Berry and Bill Fall will face Field 
and John Briggs in the shot. Ned 
Reeves should take this event, 
and perhaps the discus as well. 

Pete Riley and Bob Repp will 
do the pole vaulting for Williams. 



By Stu Auerbach 

Saturday, April 23 - In their 
second home game of the season, 
the Williams College baseball 
team faces Union this afternoon 
at 2:30 on Weston Field. The Eph- 
men faced Bowdoin yesterday in 
their .season's opener. 

Coach Bobby Coombs is still 
unsure about his starting pitcher. 
Because of ace Tom Yankus' sore 
arm, Coombs will only pitch him 
if the weather is warm. Depend- 
ing on the weather yesterday and 
today, either Charles Shaw or 
Yankus will start. Don McLean, 
Ned Heppenstall, or Walt O'Hearn 
will be available for relief work. 
Union Prospects 
This is the 44th meeting of the 
two teams since 1896. Williams 
has won 34 and lost ten games 
in the series. The two squads did 
not meet last year. 

Coach Art C. Lawrence lost 
five men from last year's squad 
of 16. The loss of co-captains Bill 
Bloomfield and Dick Henry will 
hurt the Dutchmen most. 
Three Standouts 
Even though Lawrence will 
have lost those key men, he still 
has a few standout players re- 
maining. George Wodarzak, a 
fleet-footed outfielder, leads the 
team in hitting, as well as cover- 
ing a great deal of ground in 
left field. As a freshman two 
years ago, he was the fourth lead- 
ing hitter on the team. Jack Dres- 
cher, also a junior, is a .sure field- 
er anywhere around the keystone 
sack. He played shortstop as a 
freshman and was switched to 
second last year. At short he made 
only two errors in 56 chances. 
The Ephmen will feature a 
speedy offense and a sure defense. 
According to Coombs, the success 
of the team this season depends 
on the pitching staff. It Yankus 
comes through and can get some 
help from the other members of 
the staff, "the team could go 
places," Coombs added. He feels 
that this year's squad has speed 
and he plans to capitalize on that 
advantage. Eph fans can look for- 
ward to seeing the hit and run. 
the double steal, and squeeze 
plays in contests this season. 

Riley, who did well in high school, 
could have an excellent year. 
John Pritchard. who has looked 
very good this Spring will throw 
the javelin.

spring during which the camps 
are made ready for summer op- 
eration. 

Reverend Robinson has travel- 
led widely both in and out of the 
United States. Four years ago he 
took a trip around the world un-

West Africa dui'ing which he ex- 
amined tire rise of Negro nation- 
alism in that territory.

Pleaching at Yale University. One 
outstanding minister is chosen 
each year to deliver this series. 

Reverend Robinson is no stran- 
ger to the Williams community.

Warnings 



ings has risen from 100 to 122 
over last semester. 

The senior class is the only class 
which increased the percentage 
of their class receiving warnings 
this semester over the number re- 
ceiving them last term. The fresh- 
man class increased their total 
receiving four warnings from 2 to 
5 and placed two men in the five 
warnings bracket which had been 
void the first term. 

Unfortunately these figures lie 
short of their actual totals since 
two economics and two English 
sections have not handed their 
warnings to the Registrar. Tlie 
warnings from sections IC and 
2K of economics 6 taught by Mr. 
Despres. section 4M of English 8 
with Mr. Gifford. and Mr. O'- 
Neill's section L of English 10 
will complete the list of mid- 
term warnings.

completed with the transfer of 
the Fraternity's funds to the WOC

ance rates and rental fees for the 
WOC tiuck brought differing sug- 
gestions from the Boaid members. 
Action on the matter was post- 
poned.

A complaint of insufficient re- 
imbursement for traveling ex- 
penses made by the Yacht Club

currently being paid other campus 
orguninations. Several remedies for 
the specific situation wei'c sug- 
gested, and action was tabled 
pending further study. 

Sy Becker '56. treasurer of the 
SAC. noted that the Council 
would soon have to dip into its 
savings fund to meet payable debts 
because of frequent "extraordin- 
ary " expenditures made during the 
past year. A few have not paid 
their SAC tax of $3.50 yet.

Dr. James Robinson Cites Need 
For Christian Crusade in Africa 



Chapel Audience Hears 
Of Comnriunist Threat 
On 'Dark Continent' 



Sunday. April 24 — An unusual- 
ly laiKC conureisation was on hand 
10 hear The Reverend James Rob- 
inson, minister of the Church of 
the Master in Harlem, deliver the 
sermon tonight in Thompson 
Memorial Chapel. Termed by Rev- 
erend Cole "one of the outstand- 
ing ministers in the country to- 
f!ay," Dr. Robinson spoke on the 
itreams and ideas of humanity, 
und associated them with the 
pre.sent world political situation. 

Dr. Eoblnson benan by saying 
that everything worthwhile -- art. 
Ideologies, and the United Nations, 
for instance - has Its origins in 
someone's dream. There are all 
types of dreams, not only theo- 
logical and philasophical. but 
poetic, scientific, and political as 
well. When a dream becomes a 
nightmare, as in the case of Na- 
poleon. Marx, and Engels, the ef- 
fects will be adverse. 

African Situation 

Dr. Robinson then spoke of Afri- 
ca, a topic very familiar to him. 
for he has traveled and worked 
there extensively. He stated that 
Africa, now in the throes of na- 
tionalism, is a wide-open conti- 
nent, in which either Christian 
democracy or communism could 
ultimately triumph. What we in 
the west must do to defeat the 
"nightmare" of communi-sm is to 
present the African people with 
a nobler dream then the commu- 
nists can offer. We must also be 
willing to sacrifice for this dream, 
just as the young, well-trained 
communists are willing to sacri- 
fice for their ends. Dr. Robinson 
ominou.sly added that we must 
certainly "di'cam better than we 
did in Soutli-east Asia." 

In concluding. Dr. Robinson 
stated that immense possibilities 
are open to us if we dream the 
dream of God. for a dream can 
and will multiply Itself. After the 
service, a discussion was held in 
the Student Union. Reverend Rob- 
inson emphasized the need for a 
realization in the west tliat Afri- 
ca is "ready" to govern: other- 
wise the communists will capita- 
lize on African nationalism. He 
also cited the need for diplomacy 
not in the American "rusli rush" 
manner.

Social Council Backs 
Changing Definition 



Sentiment Vote Involves 
Sophs During Rushing 



Monday, April 25 — At a .short 
meeting held tonight in the Stu- 
dent Union. The Social Council 
took a sentiment vote of 7-6 in 
favor of the new redefinition of 
lushing in relation to the Cla.ss 
of 1958 during the actual week 
of rushing. This new redefinition 
had already been approved of by 
the combined SC-CC for the in- 
coming fre.shmen but a def- 
inite policy for next year's sopho- 
mores during rush week had not 
been formulated. A final vote will 
be taken next week. 

Last year the Social Council 
made a "gentleman's agreement" 
not to talk about any matters 
concerning the fraternity. Many 
observers feel that this method 
of limiting conversation is unfair 
to freshmen in that it restricts 
their knowledge of any fraterni- 
ty. At a joint meeting on March 
28. the SC-CC adopted the fol- 
lowing redefinition of rushing for 
the Class of 1959: "that illegal 
rushing be redefined as talk or 
communication relating to any 
freshman's status as a prospec- 
tive pledge as concerns: I-i any 
hou.se to any fre.shman. B-> any 
freshman to any house." 



Council of Librarians Singles Out 
Schumans Article as Outstanding 

Weclnesdny, April 27 - "Tlic Hussian Hkkllc". an article by 
Professor Frederick L. Scliinnan in the lH'l)ruarv issue i,iCum-ut

Uussian foreign policy in an issue devoted cntirelv to a sur\cy ot

ndicvcs Coexistence I'o.isiblc 

Lookinc at Russian history, Dr. Schnman i)oints out that the 
USSR, until recently a weak nation econoniicallv and inilitanlv, has 
l)een invaded by foieiirn* powers more than almost any othci coun- 
try, and has responded to these external thicats bv absolute and 
autocratic government and "frantic attempts to catch ii]) with Wes- 
tern teehnoloKy". Russian leaders believe that then conntrv must 
either become powerful or perish. 

iMirther noting that Russian ajli^ressioii has always been direc- 
ted against local .shateKic frontiers ratlu'r than at the world D 
Schuman maintains that "the grand dosipi of Cominuni/mg the 
world ha.s no timetable" and is little more than sonictbmg to b. 
vaguely aimed at in the future. Realizing that a war at piesent 
would be disastrovis to them, tb<- Russians are willing to settle loi

Phi Bete Society 
Holds Discussion 
Of Marx Writing 

Schuman Stresses Need 
For Marx Teaching 
In U. S. A. Education 



Capital by Karl Marx was the 
subject of a student-faculty dis- 
cussion sponsored by the Phi Beta 
Kappa Society here this evening. 
Representing the faculty were 
Professors Frederick Schuman of 
the Political Science department 
and Emile Despies of the Econom- 
ics Department. The students were 
Locke Anderson. '55. Eric Gus- 
tafson. '55 and Carl Rosen, '55, 
who acted as moderator. 

Leading off the discussion. An- 
derson examined what he termed 
"the contradictions of Marx's lite." 
He pointed out as an example that 
Marx led a "devoted and happy 
family life" while at the same 
time showing much Intolerance in 
his political relationships. He con- 
cluded by terming Marx a "tragic 
figure whose own genius destroy- 
ed him." 

Marx's Economics 
Gustafson followed with a brief 
discussion of Marxian economics 
in which he worked on the thesis 
that Marx inherited much of his 
economic theory from the classi- 
cal economists. He added that 
Marx had also gone beyond this 
to form his final view. 

Amplifying Gustafson 's remarks. 
Professor Despres criticized Marx's 
economics on several points. He 
noted in particular that the classi- 
cal economist idea that human 
behavior Is "natural and innate" 
had been disproved by the work of 
the cultural anthropologists.

TIMES Sees Gain 
In I). S. Debating 

Adelphic Union Receives 
Oxford Team Praises 



Gargoyle Group Releases 
View of Delayed Rushing 



Wednesday. April 27 — Ameri- 
can debating, according to the 
New York Times, is now enjoying 
its greatest popularity since it was 
organized In 1881. It began when 
a New York University team chal- 
lenged Rutgers. The Rutgers team 
won, successfully upholding the 
thesis that voting should be open 
to all citizens, except women and 
children. Today, debating has be- 
come a leading extra-curricular 
activity. 

Last week, the annual intercol- 
legiate debating tournament open- 
ed at 'West Point. Thirty-four de- 
bating teams, representing the 
best in the land, came to West 
Point to vie for the honor of be- 
ing named the champion debating 
college for 1955. 

Williams Has Notable Team 

One reason advanced by educa- 
tors for the current interest is the 
furor caused last fall when the 
national topic for 1954-55 was cho- 
sen. When it was announced that 
colleges would debate the ques- 
tion whether the U.S. should rec- 
ognize Communist China, officials 
of both 'West Point and Annapolis 
withdrew their institutions from 
the debating arena. The only 
statement made was that it was 
contrary to the academics' policy 
to discuss a national Issue on 
which principles had already been 
formulated. 

Increased interest has been 
shown in debating at Williams. 
The membership of the Adelphic 
Union has increased this spring, 
and the organization has com- 
piled an enviable record this year. 
A full house saw a lively debate 
with Oxford opposing Williams. 
On a television interview some 
weeks later, the Oxford team said 
that Williams was the toughest 
opposition that they had met in 
this country.
