Faculty Gets Unprecedented Pay Boost 

Election Petition Deadline Monday; 
CC Desires More Student Interest 

Last week's College Council meeting set Monday, February 11, 
as the final deadline for submitting petitions for candidacy in the 
college elections. Following the recommendation of Chairman 
Frank Dengel's Rules, Nominations, and Elections Committee, the 
date for the actual balloting was set for the following Thursday, 
February 14. 

Dee Gardner, president of the CC, made a special plea that 

interest be encouraged in these Q 

elections. He feels that now is the 
opportunity for the numerous crit- 
ics of student government to ex- 
press themselves. At Williams, too 
often an apathy among the stu- 
dent body has prevented a more 
representative student govern- 

Election Mechanics 

It was pointed out that the first 
necessary step, which is too often 
neglected, is the submitting of a 
petition containing forty signa- 
tures from the electing class. This 
must be done by Monday! The 
RECORD then plans to print 
statements from each of the can- 
didates on controversial Issues In 
the paper of Wednesday, Febru- 
ary 13. 

The following day, in compliance 
with the 1954 CC constitution re- 
quirements, each class shall elect 
a President and Secretary-Trea- 
surer. In addition the freshman 
class shall elect one representative 
to the CC, the sophomore class 
two representatives, and the jun- 
ior, class three. Elections shall be 
by preferential vote for the num- 
ber of offices to be filled in each 
class. The Rules, Nominations, and 

Retiring CC President Dee

Elections Committee expressed 
theii' intention to encourage as 
many students to get out to vote 
as possible. 

The RECORD will run a com- 
plete list of candidates and their 
qualifications in its next issue.

By Ernie Imhoff 
"Our main concern after the turn of events in Hungary was to 
get out fast and so resulted the great joy in my life, that of becom- 
ing free. Everything following the fhght into Austria has been 
wonderful but perhaps entering the Utile tov/n of Endau across 
the border made me most happy." q- 
Talking in a manner free and easy, 
with diversions into French, Ger- 
man and English for his interested 
listeners, was Gabor Teleki, Hun- 
garian refugee who escaped from 
Communist domination last No- 
vember and sailed by the Statue 
of Liberty in New York January 

Through the combined efforts 
of Dave Helprin, Phi Delta Theta 
and the family of Francis Schell, 
Williams '56, Gabor was able to 
arrive in Williamstown this week 
from Camp Kilmer to become en- 
rolled in Williams and be taken 
in by the Phi Delts. As a student 
he will study physics, math and 
French, since he expresses a keen 
desire to prepare for an enginer- 
ing career. 

Early Years and Later Hungary 

Born on September 29, 1932 and 
raised in Budapest, Gabor attend- 
ed the Gymnasium for 8 years, 
which involves a scholastic paral- 
lel relatively higher by age group 
than the American high school. 

"Since 1950," Gabor related, 
"conditions in Himgary have been 
frightful. Various manefestatlons 

In a surprise announcement President James P. Baxter re- 
vealed Thursday that the Trustees have voted the largest single- 
year pay hike for the faculty in Williams history. The raise will go 
into effect July 1. 

Annouced in a scheduled lecture on "College Finances", the 

Onew plan will give increases a- 

mounting to about $100,000 a year 
in straight salary and an addi- 
tional $50,000 in fringe benefits. 

In the three year period prior to 
July 1, teachers' cash salaries at 
Williams have been boosted 20 per 
cent, while fringe benefits have 
risen approximately five per cent, 
Baxter said. 

New Pay Scale 

Top yearly pay for full Pro- 
fessors will be $13,000, but the 
salary grant will be dispersed 
through all four teaching levels. 
According to Baxter, the new plan 
'will place Williams in a much 
stronger competitive position for 
top teachers, especially in the two 
lower grades". 

After the new scale goes into 
effect. Associate Professors will 
get from $7200-$7800, while As- 
sistant Professors will draw $5400- 
$6500. Pay for Instructors will 
range from $4300-$5200. 

The fringe benefits will probab- 
ly take the form of group life, 
group health and accident insur- 
ance, plus a change in the pro- 
portion of contributions to the 
pension system from 7 per cent 
from both the teacher and the 
college, to five per cent from the 
teacher and 10 per cent from the 
college. In addition, each faculty 
member will receive $800 a year 
for each child in college. 

The new pay increases have been 
made possible through a variety of 
sources. Almost a quarter of the 
funds come from the Ford Foun- 
dation grant. The remainder of 
the money has become available 
through an increase in college tui- 
tion, income from endowment in- 
vestments, cun-ent gifts to the col- 
lege, and the alumni fund.

Personal Comment 

Volume LXXI February 9, 1957 Number 1 


Today the RECORD begins its 54th year 
of pubhcation. The new editorial and business 
boards, while aware of the limitations of student 
publications, believe tliat a campus newspaper 
can always make positive contributions to its 
college. The new boards humbly pledge tliem- 
selves to this goal. 

Before all else, the liECORD will be a 
NEWSpaper. The news and sports pages, we 
trust, will be comprehensive, informative and re- 
liable chronicles of daily events at Williams Col- 
lege. News coverage will be accurate and un- 

Secondly, the RECORD will utiUze its ed- 
itorial pages to strive for the advancement of 
the Williams community. While recognizing tlie 
many impressive traditions of long standing here, 
we also realize the need for progress. According- 
ly, the editorial board will take vigorous stands 
on major issues, the pohcy always reflecting the 
opinion of a majority of board members and not 
necessarily tliat of tlie students, faculty, adminis- 
tration or alumni. 

We will not duck controversy. We will at- 
tempt to remain fair and impartial at all times. 
We will praise where we feel praise is due and 
we wall not hesitate to criticize where we believe 
the WiUiams community is lacking. We hope to 
back every criticism with positive suggestions 
of our own. 

These policies will be intended to stimulate 
student thought. Everyone is encouraged to make 
the editorial pages a sounding board of public o- 
pinion. All letters with authors' names attached 
will be printed, although, upon request, the 
publication of the writers' names may be with- 

In addition, the business board has instituted 
a three-level program: 1) to boost circulation 50 
percent from its present 1,200 level; 2) to in- 
crease the amount and effectiveness of local ad- 
vertising; 3) to push the paper into the black 
financially for the first times in many years. 

In sum, it is our hope that the new RECORD 
will prove to be more than a glorified Adviser. 

The New Look 

As must be quite obvious, the RECORD 
has changed its format. It marks the first such 
change in 10 years. 

In keeping with modern journalistic trends, 
the pages have been shortened three inches and 
narrowed from six to five columns. A new head- 
line schedule has been adopted and more pic- 
tures will be used. 

Present plans call for a four-page issue Fri- 
day or Saturdays and sue page editions Wed- 
nesday. The mid-week paper will feature two 
sports pages for complete coverage of weekend 
sporting events and also of freshmen athletics. 

The primary purpose of these bold altera- 
tions is conciseness. With stories and headlines 
considerably shortened and simplified, the REC- 
ORD hopes to eliminate the abundance of ex- 
traneous and uninteresting material which all 
too often has plagued these columns in the past. 

The new business and editorial boards put 
considerable deliberation and effort into estab- 
lishing this new format; quite frankly we hope 
you like it. 

Religion Major? 

By Stephen C. Rose 
In at least one respect interest in religion at 
Williams has doubled in recent years. Chaplain 
William Cole informs us that there are now an 
unprecedented 217 students enrolled in the re- 
ligion department's six course offerings. Rever- 
end Cole gives one explanation of tliis upsurge 
in interest: "the religious revival". The same 
force which has resulted in the modem swell- 
ing church populations has brought students 
throughout the country to the doors of their col- 
lege religion departments. What is this force? Ac- 
cording to Mr. Cole it is a "growing interest in 
religious questions ... in the ultimate meanmg 
of life". 

In the face of increased enrollment and in- 
terest, what can Williams do to meet tire situa- 
tion? It has been suggested that religion become 
a major course, like philosophy, physics, or poli- 
tical science. Mr. Cole cites several arguments 
both for and against such a plan. 

"A major course", says Cole, "serves as an 
integrating device". By learning one discipline 
thoroughly, a student has something to hang his 
"beads of laiowledge" on. "Rehgion serves as well 
as any otiier subject for tliis purpose". Other 
colleges such as Princeton and Yale have excel- 
lent undergraduate religion departments. Sev- 
eral Williams students have expressed an interest 
in majoring in rehgion. Reverend Cole stressed 
that no rehgion major would aim at spreading re- 
ligion, per. se, "You can't give a person a mark 
on the extent to which he's converted. We have 
always made a clear distinction between the tea- 
cher's desk and the pulpit." 

Despite the validity of religion as a major 
subject, there has been no effort to change the 
present setup at Williams. Says Cole: "We have 
always seen ourselves as a service department, 
teaching a limited number of courses to many 
students." This statement is easily proved: there 
are currently 123 students in Religion 2. There 
are numerous bars to making religion a major. 
Reverend Cole expressed fear tliat such a major 
would attract only pre-theological students who 
would "eventually get tlie same thing at semin- 
ary". He questioned whether many other stu- 
dents would be interested in really concentrating 
on rehgion. 

The other negative arguments are purely 
practical. Even though there will be three men 
in the religion department next fall, only one will 
be free to carry a full teaching load. Such a 
change would requue the addition of at least 
one more faculty member. Also a complete re- 
vamping of the college curriculum would have 
to taJce place. 

As Professor Rudolph points out in his re- 
cent book on WiUiams, most important changes 
in the classroom and on the campus have stem- 
med from student movements. If there is a gen- 
uine interest in rehgion as a major course, the 
students involved without hesitation should 
express it strongly. Only through continual ex- 
amination of Williams by students can the pres- 
sure to change, which is the life force of any 
educational institution, be effective. 

The Leadership Question 


LUST FOR LIFE (metro, 122 min.)-Long 
but good. Kirk Douglas, as a passionate Vincent 
Van Cogh, has been awarded the Best Actor 
award by the New York Film Critics for his sen- 
sitive performance. Anthony Quinn is a cred- 
itable Paul Gaugin. In Cinemascope and beauti- 
ful color. Ends tonight at the Walden.

art in motion picture production. Western. Be- 
gins Sunday at the Adams. 

BUNDLE OF JOY (RKO, 100 min.) -Mu-

at the Paramount, North Adams. 

FOUR GIRLS IN TOWN (Universal, 85 
min.)— A vehicle to acquaint the viewing aud- 
ience with some studio unknowns. Elsa Marti- 
nelh, a cuddly Itahan import, is at least worth

dolph Scott squints tlrrough the dust as howling 
Rea Indians encircle the Long Knive's encamp- 
ment. Begins Sunday at the Mohawk, North

Scott, and sings, too. A fairly worthwhile come- 
dy. Sunday at the Adams. 

ISTANBUL (84 min. ) -Intrigue in the my- 
sterious Orient. Tliis film is the real Middle East 
Crisis; Errol Flynn is still around. Until tonight 
at the Mohawk. 

George Aid 

The success of student government at Williams has frequently 
been questioned by undergraduates. It is often alleged that stu- 
dent leaders are elected on the basis of popularity rather than 
demonstrated ability. With class elections slated to take place next 
Tliursday, February 14, the whole problem of student leadership 
at Williams assumes immediate importance. 

The RECORD, in an attempt to ascertain the true nature of 
student leadership at Williams has obtained relevant comments by 
four individuals— Dean Lamson, Professor Robert Scott, Lou Lus- 
tenberger, '58, and Frederick Copeland. Specifically, Lamson 
Copeland, and Lustenberger were asked to submit remarks re- 
lating to tlie following questions: 

1. Do you feel that Williams elections are popularity polls? 

2. Do you feel that the popular candidates are necessarilv 
the best leaders? 

3. What, in your opinion, are the qualities of a good student 

Professor Scott was requested to appraise the success of tlie 
College Council as the main vehicle of student government at 

These questions are valid not simply for a few selected indi- 
viduals. They should be reckoned with by the student body as a 
whole. If, as some have claimed, elections are mere popularity 
polls, it may be time for a good deal of serious thought. Only if 
the voters themselves make up their minds on these questions can 
any responsible changes (if necessary) take place. 

Dean Lamson . . .As far as my experience witli Freshman 
class elections goes, I do not think that the elections have been 
popularity polls alone. Naturally a student must be popular to 
win votes, but the student leaders of freshman classes I have ob- 
served have demonstrated tlieir ability to serve and lead their clas- 
ses. Mere popularity without demonstrated accomphshment will 
not often return a man to office. 

The qualities of a good student leader are a desire to serve 
his class and college, a strong awareness of college problems, a 
gentlemanly tactfulness, a firm sense of fairness, a sound academic 
accomplishment, and imagination. 

• * * 

Professor Robert C. L. Scott ( acting Dean of Williams at the 
time the present form of student govcriunent was instituted) ... 
Generally, student leaders have lived uji to my expectations. The 

{irincipal shortcomings concerning student government at Wil- 
iams are not due to the failings of student leaders but to a lack of 
interest and participation of the student body as a whole. 

The College Council, as a grouji, has re|)resented the college 
as a whole rather than the particular interests of its members. Un- 
fortunately, however, the College Council has operated in a vac- 
uum due to a deficiency in commmiicution between it and the 
student body. Perhaps a feasible solution to this problem would he 
regular, aU-college meetings at wliich student attendence would be 

• * * 

Lou Lustenberger, (President of the Junior Advisers) ... A 
good student leader must, above all, be willing to work long and 
hard, attending to the details others might forget. 

During the first part of the college career at Williams, leaders 
are chosen because they are popular. However, they do not con- 
tinue as leaders unless they keep at the behind-the-scenes work 
which produces tangible results, whetlier these results be a suc- 
cessful dance or a new rushing system. 

• * • 

Frederick Copeland, (Director of Admissions) . . . The im- 
portance and responsibility of the position of student leader should 
be stressed. Students should vote for the candidate whom they feel 
is best equipped to handle the position. Although elections should 
not be a mere popularity contest, popularity, in the sense of socia- 
bihty, must necessarily be a factor in selecting student leaders. In 
this respect, it is essential that student leaders be well known and 
respected by their classmates. Only if this condition is met is the 
leader truly capable of representing tliem. It certainly is a situa- 
tion of grave concern when a boy treats election to office casual- 
ly, not fulfilhng the wishes and expectations of his classmates.

250 Couples Expected 

Two hundred and fifty couples 
are expected to attend the dance. 
The proceeds from the ticket sales 
of the dance will go towards pay- 
ing the initial cost of next year's 
college calendar, published by the 
Purple Key Society. The profits 
will also help defray some of the 
expense of sending questionnaires 
and representatives to various col- 
leges to study their managerial 
systems and help correct some of 
the faults of the present system 
here. The printing of posters for

Further Comments 

"When the revolution first be- 
gan in October there existed no 
thought of flight by the Hun- 
garian people and even with the 
November Russian entrance opti- 
mism was prevalent. Before the 
latter uprising, I was employed in 
a printer's shop in Budapest for 
the cause and when November 4 
appeared, I was working in the 
country. With the Russian spec- 
tre growing, evacuation by the 
mass was necessary resulting in a 
streaming toward the Austrian 
Border. Endau and freedom were 
reached following my family's two 
day flight by train and foot." 

Concerning impressions of the 
free world, Gabor says "It is too 
soon to draw positive conclusions 
and comparisons but I must say 
just about everything seems won- 
derful. On the definite side, I 
should add, however, that I enjoy 
the atmosphere of brotherhood at 
Phi Delt and the town of Wil- 
liamstown because of a friendly 
compactness in an uncrowded 
beautiful setting. I was amazed at 
the crowded confusion of New 
York with its speeding cars and 
skyscrapers and I certainly prefer 
the quietness of this town."

Varsity Hockey Team 
Seeks Eighth Victory 
Against Visiting Jeffs 

The Williams Hockey Team 
should gain their eighth victory of 
the season today as they encounter 
a weak, inexperienced Amherst 
squad. Amherst has defeated Holy 
Cross, while bowing to U.Mass., 
Middlebury, Bowdoin and Colby. 

With the graduation of Harry 
Gotoff, all eastern, independent 
goalie last year, the Sabrinas will 
depend on veterans Bob Biddle and 
Ed Stringer, who lead the team 
as co-captains. Replacing Gotoff, 
will be sophomore Brady Coleman 
who has turned in several good 
performances already this year. 
With only 17 hockey candidates, 
depth has proved to be one of 
Coach Red Richardson's main 

Stringer Leads Scoring Hopes 

Ed Stringer, last year's high 
scorer will lead the Jeff's scoring 
attack, flanked by Pete Van Du- 
sen and Bob McLean. A good stick 
handler, Stringer is probably Am- 
herst's best skater. Bob Biddle will 
team up with Tom Sawyer at the

Lombard and Rick Driscoll will 
compose the Ephs' starting line.

Eph Yearlings Lose 

The Williams College freshman 
basketball team dropped a close 
game to Springfield on Tuesday, 
79-75, at the Springfield courts. 
The Ephmen gained the lead dur- 
ing the second period, but were 
down 35-34 at the half. Williams 
never gained a lead thereafter al- 
though they tied the score at sev- 
eral points. The Maroons held on 
to their advantage until the clos- 
ing minutes of the game when the 
Ephs were forced into numerous 
fouls in their press. 

J. B. Morris led the Williams 
team in scoring with a total of 
twenty-seven points. Teammates 
Chuck Colby and Pete Muhlhausen 
scored sixteen and thirteen respec- 
tively. The other two starting 
players were Win Healy and Dave 
Be van. This loss extended the Eph 
yearling losing streak to three 
games and brought the season's 
record to seven and four.

Bill McCormick. One of the East's 
hockey powers, Harvard constantly 
boasts of powerful freshman 

Center Jim Fischer will be 
flanked by Al Erb and Buzz Morss. 
Dick Alford will handle the goal 
duties while Roger Martin and

and Alford wiU spark the defen- 
sive action. The Fi'osh have de- 
feated a Springfield high school 
and lost to Taft, Kent and Choate. 

Ephmen Score 7th Hockey Victory; 
Cook Scores Two Against U Mass 

Dave Cook scored two goals and assisted on a third to lead 
the Williams sextet to a 4-3 victory over U. Muss, last Wednesday. 
The Ephs dominated the puck the entire game, but inaccurate 
sliooting and fine goal-tending by Gene DeMasselis held the vic- 
tors in check. 

Williams grabbed the lead as Rick Driscoll drove in Cook's 
rcliound. With an Eph in the penalty box, Cook outskated the visi- 
lors to score from 25 feet assisted by defenseman Howie Patter- 
son. At 10:57 Redman Paul Lynch tallied off a defcnsemaii's skate. 
With 40 seconds left in the ]5eriod, Doug Poole pushed a loose puck 
jiast DeMasselis who had dropped on ]3ick Mood's shot. Mike 
Grant also was credited with an assist. 

Ron Pozzo opened the second peiiotl scoring by soloing in for 
the U. Mass. score. Cook tlien scored fiom seven feet on l{ieh Lom- 
bard's set-up pass, while Lundgren retaliated, assisted l)y Uattis.

sport 2-1 Record 

By David Sirm 

Saturday, February 16 will see the start of a new sports col- 
umn in the RECORD. Tlirouj^hout the year there have been many 
questions and complaints concerninjj varied athletic problems and 
policies of the Williams College Athletic department. This col- 
umn will try to answer and elucidate these 'gripes'. I feel, how- 
ever, that the controversies themselves should not orij^inate out of 
the sport pages of the RECORD, hut from the student body, the 
coaches, or any member of the Athletic Department. 

In actuality, the column will he a Letter to the Editors on the 
sports page. It is an opportunity for any one interested in the Wil- 
liams sports situation to express his views in print. In answering 
these letters I will try to be as fair as possiblt; to all concerned, 
though by no means will 1 hedge or take tlie middle of the road. 
The ideas will be mine, and do not necessarily express the REC- 
ORD'S view. All letters should be addressed to Sports Editor of 
the RECORD, or handed to me in person before Tuesday evening 
in order to get into the following Saturday's issue. 

All sports articles will be as objective as possible in the coming 
year, and we will attempt to accompany each with a box score. 
U|i to date statistics and Intramural standing will also appear ap- 
proximately every week. All editorializing will come from Uiis col- 
umn, or one by Karl Hirshman in the Wednesday issue. It is my 
belief sports coverage must be more complete, more factual and 
more critical this year than it has in the past, and this is our aim.

Shawmen Lose Eighth 
To Springfield Cagers 

Bij Chuck Dunkel 

The Williams basketball team kept up with a hustling Spring- 
field College Club for most of the game tonight, but Ed Bilik and 
Tom Karanda finally proved too much for the E]3hmen and die 
Maroons pulled away in the last four minutes to win 89-76. Bilik, 
a deadeye S'lO" guard, rattled the Williams defense for 34 points 
before fouling out late in the fourth quarter, when the 6'3" Kar- 
randa took over and popjDed in three straight baskets to break the 
tight game wide open. Jeff Morton lead the Williams scoring with 
25 points, as the Ephs suffered their eighth loss against six victories. 

Springfield made the most of some deadly shooting to pull 
into an early 16-6 lead against die taller Purple squad, but paced 
by some fine outside shooting by Capt. John Lewis, the Ephs 
quickly cut into the margin and trailed by only fom- at the quarter. 
The second period was a nip-and-tuck battle all the way, with 
Morton's fine rebounding and scoring offsetting Bilik's fine play; 
die score was tied 43-43 at the half. In the third period Springfield 
pulled ahead to lead by 7 points at the ten minute mark, but the 
Shawmen again rallied and trailed by only two jjoints with four 
minutes left, when Karranda suddenly got hot and put the game 
out of reach. 

Hedeman Gets 15 

Bill Hedeman was second high for Williams with 15 ])oints, 
13 of them in the second half, while Lewis got 10 before fouling 
out in the third quarter. For Springfield, Al ]3yrne followed Bilik 
with 18 points, while Wilson got 12 and Karranda 11, as the Ma- 
roons remained imdefeated at home and raised their season record 
to 9-7. 

On Saturday, Feb. 8, Williams will meet a strong Vermont 
team in Lasell Gym, with the E]5limen out to gain that elusive 
7th victory and repeat their win of last year over the Catamounts. 
Vermont is currently leading the Yankee Conference and has 
posted a 9-1 record, including victories over U. Mass. and AIC. 
The Catamounts are led by high-scoring Guard Clyde Lord and 
6'4" center Arnie Branch, both All-New- York-City selections in 
high school.

The Williams College varsity 
wrestling team, after losing a close 
match to Springfield before final 
exams, will attempt to renew its 
winning ways when it meets the 
U.S. Coast Guard Academy in La- 
sell Gym at 2:30 this afternoon. 
Coach Jim Ostendarp's mat- 
men, with a 2-1 season record, are 
heavily favored, as the New Lon- 
don Cadets have lost their only 
two matches this season and are 
reportedly without the services of 
veteran Derham, top New England 
heavyweight wrestler. Williams 
has scored decisive victories over 
Tufts and the University of Mas- 
sachusetts, while the Coast Guard 
has lost to Wesleyan, 16-10, and 
to the Merchant Marine Academy, 

Two-time New England champ 
Bob Koster and Captain Ted Mc- 
Kee will again lead the Ephmen, 
wrestling at 157 and 137 pounds 
respectively. Koster, undefeated in 
four years of regular season com- 
petition, has won two matches by 
pins this year. McKee has a 2-1 
record. He lost a close decision a- 
gainst Springfield. Juniors John 
Evans and Jim Hutchinson remain 
the 123 and 157 class starters, 
while sophs Kuhrt Wieneke and 
Bob Hatcher, both victors against 
Springfield, will handle the 130 
pound and heavyweight assign- 

An inter-squad battle has de- 
veloped for the starting berths in 
both the 167 and 177 pound divi- 
sions. In the former .soph Dave 
Moore has sufficiently recovered 
from a knee in,iury to challenge 
Gene Sullivan. At the same time 
newcomer Ted Sage and vet Pete 
Carney are aiming at unseating 
Ted Baumgardner from his start- 
ing slot at 177 pounds.

Unusual Opportunities for 

Growth Jobs 

in the fields of Advertising and Marketing 

Procter & Gamble has openings for young college men of promise 
and ability in its Advertising Department. While the openings 
are all within the framework of Advertising and Sales Promo- 
tion, the nature of the work is Marketing Management rather 
than "handling advertising" as most people understand it. For 
this reason, specialized training or experience in Advertising or 
Marketing is not required. Good general business potential, a 
high degree of native intelligence, and the ability to work 
smoothly with many types of people will be considered foremost. 
In the last ten years alone, Procter & Gamble sales have 
increased from $336 million to over $1 billion. This rapid expan- 
sion, plus our policies of always filling higher level positions 
by promotion from within and advancing people individually 
and rapidly as soon as they are ready to move up the ladder, 
creates a truly outstanding opportunity. 

A brief description follows of the various careers now open in 
the Procter & Gamble Advertising Department. 

BRAND MANAGEMENT— The marketing problems of each 
of our brands are handled by a separate staff of Marketing 
Management men. Men employed for this work are trained to 
manage and be responsible for the effectiveness of the over-all 
Advertising and Promotion effort on an important, nationally 
advertised brand. These positions involve working with many 
Company departments, including the Research and Develop- 
ment Department on product development, the Sales Depart- 
ment on the development of promotions, and with the Advertis- 
ing Agency on all phases of planning for the brand. 

COPY SUPERVISION— Copy Supervisors manage advertis- 
ing copy operations on our brands principally by (1) representing 
the Company in a close working relationship with our agencies 
on all phases of the development of advertising copy and (2) 
evaluating agency copy proposals in the light of product facts, 
marketing objectives, and background knowledge of effective 
selling techniques. These men do not write copy; this is a 
function of our advertising agencies. However, within our 
Advertising Department, they are responsible for the over-all 
effectiveness of advertising copy operations in radio, television, 
magazines and other media. 

MERCHANDISING— Merchandising men develop store 
promotions involving groups of Company brands, select and 
develop premium articles, manage the country-wide sampling 
and couponing operations, assist the Sales Department in con- 
ducting trade conventions, and operate contests, mail-ins, and 
other forms of promotions. 

MEDIA— Media men guide the Company in the investment 
of advertising appropriations. Working with the advertising 
agencies, ihey develop media plans on each brand using radio, 
television, magazines, newspapers, etc.

AdTertisinc Department, will be at the

Highlight Key Weekend 

Wliat could have proved a very disastrous, snowless Winter- 
Carnival turned into a delightful and highly successful Purple 
Key Weekend. Proclaimed a smashing success by all participants, 
the Ephmen and their dates were presented entertainment of every 
description, from the very private cocktail party to a gala all- 
college dance, from squash to basketball and swimming. 

Evidence of a holiday spirit per- 

vaded the Williams campus early 
Friday morning when many fair 
damsels ma4e their api>earances. 
Unofficially the weekend started 
that night with house cocktail par- 
ties, a squash match and a variety 
of flicks ttu-oughout the area. 

Results of Purple Key Weekend 
Sports Contests appear on pages 
4 and 5 of this issue. 

Officially the weekend swung 
full steam ahead on Saturday and 
the sports-minded couples reveled 
in a wealth of sporting events. 
The freshmen watched their class- 
mates tangle unsuccessfully with 
a strong Harvard team; the RPI 
frosh lost in basketball and Deer- 
field Academy won 5-4 in squash. 
Choice as to what varsity events 
should be watched proved quite 
frustrating Saturday afternoon, as 
the swimmers tied Coimecticut, 
the undefeated grapplers defeated 
Coast Guard and the hockey team 
downed Amherst all at the same 

After the Vermont basketball 
game that evening, the couples re- 
tired to Baxter Hall for the Purple 
Key Dance. With the music of 
Haddad and his Hi Fls, the sing- 
ing of the Freshman octet and the 
Mount Holyoke V-8s, and the con- 
tinual flow of beer, the weekend 
came to an end with a bang. As 
one petite blond was heard to say, 
"Gee, they should have this win- 
ter carnival warm-up every year." 

C. C. Statement 

In reference to the Delta Phi 
situation, the College Council 
Monday passed the following re- 

1 ) Although it is healthy for an 
alumni group to take active inter- 
est In the workings of a fraternity, 
we beUeve it out of order for them 
to seek to Impose their will in an 
unwarranted fashion upon the un- 
dergraduate members in the area 
of selection of pledges and under- 
graduate officers. 2) We whole- 
heartedly support the investiga- 
tion by the committee appointed 
by President Baxter and the Board 
of Trustees into the problem of 
discrimination at Williams. 

3) We recommend that frater- 
nities continue to work within the 
framework of national and alum- 
ni organizations against the dis- 
criminatory practice In the selec- 
tion of members in fraternities on 
the Williams campus. 4) We rec- 
ommend to the incoming CouncU 
a) that it initiate Investigation in- 
to the campus-wide problem of 
discrimination, publicizing the dis- 
criminatory clauses in each fra- 
ternity charter, whether these 
clauses be specifically stated or 
tacitly understood, b) That It 
sponsor a student referendum to 
give a definite picture of student 
feeling on discrimination, c) That 
it carry out any further measures 
it considers pertinent to the eli- 
mination of discrimination on the 
Williams campus.

All Students Encouraged To Vote 
Between 9 And 6:30 Tomorrow 

With forty-four candidates no-gj

to op>en tomorrow morning sharp- ' 
ly at 9:00 a.m. in Baxter Hall for 
the aimual all-college elections. 
Voting wlU continue until 6:30 

Prank Dengel of the CC strong- 
ly urged every student to make the 
effort to vote. Noting the high 
caliber of the candidates from 
each class, he predicted an ef- 
fective election. 

A list of candidates for class of- 
fices appears on page 6, column 3. 

The winners of this election will 
form the 1957-58 College Council. 
With this in mind, Dengel feels 
that students should consider 
candidates for their ability to serve 
on the Coimcll rather than mere 
symbols of popularity. 
No Apathy 

With the exception of the sen- 
ior class, great enthusiasm was 
shown In the first step towards 
election. The large number of 
nominating petitions successfully 
signed reflects a change from the 
usual apathy, especially in the 
lower classes,

On Sunday, Feb. 3, 1957, four 
of the Board of Directors of the 
Alumni of Upsilon Chapter of Del- 
ta Phi Fraternity at WllUams Col- 
lege presented to the members of 
the local chapter of Delta Phi a 
resolution of their Board of Di- 
rectors which in effect moved to 
impose a new constitution and 
slate of six officers of their own 
choosing upon the active chapter 
against the will of a large majority 
of the undergraduate members. 
Twenty-six of the thirty-two un- 
dergraduate members are reject- 
ing this attempt by the Board of 
Directors on the grounds that the 
Board has exceeded the authority 
vested in it by the national and 
local constitutions. 

In regard to the six-man slate 
of officers which the Board seeks 
to install by fiat, the active chap- 
ter maintains that they have not 
been elected in accordance with 
the provisions of the national and 
local constitutions, and therefore, 
such action is null and void. At 
a regular house meeting held on 
Wednesday, Feb. 6, 1957, the an- 
nual election of officers was con- 
ducted in accordance with the 
constitutional provisions. The six 
men nominated by the Board of 
Directors were invited to attend 
but absented themselves from the

tution of the local chapter can 
only be changed or replaced by a 
vote of the undergraduate mem-

Action is expected Friday to de- 
cide the future course of events 
at the divided Delta Phi Frater- 

The Alumni Board of Directors 
has stated that house members 
must accept a new constitution 
and an alumni-selected slate of 
officers by that time. Duane S. 
Yee '57, retiring president of the 
fraternity, denied in a precedent- 
setting two-hour press conference 
Saturday alumni charges of fi- 
nancial instability and breach of 

Well-informed sources that have 
been widely publicized in local and 
national press services claim that 
the core of contention is discrim- 
ination against members of the 
Jewish faith. The six members on 
the alumni slate of officers re- 
fused to comment on any portion 
of any statement, except for one 
vehement denial that the issue was 
based on anti-semitism. 

Lohrlce '49, Refuses Comment 

The president of the Delta Phi 
Alumni Board of Dii-ectors, Theo- 
dore Lohrke '49, would make no 
comment except to refer reporters 
to the alumni resolution when he 
was contacted by phone during the 
unusual press conference. He did 
admit that he would be in Wil- 
liamstown Friday. 

The sources contending that the 
base of the disagreement lies in 
discrimination against members of 
the Jewish faith pointed out that 
during rush week last September 
the Alumni Board presented a list

College Statement 

When asked for a statement on 
the college's position regarding al- 
leged discrimination In fraterni- 
ties, a college authority said: 

"It will be recalled that In 1955 
the Board of Trustees approved 
the following resolution: 'In elec- 
tion to fraternities and to campus 
offices, the Board holds that each 
undergraduate should be accorded 
whatever recognition he merits as 
an individual according to his a- 
bility, achievement, personality 
and character, and further em- 
phasizes its position, that no fra- 
ternity may operate on the Wil- 
liams campus whose Williams 
chapter is not free to elect to 
membership any individual on the 
basis of his merits as a person.' " 

President James P. Baxter 3d of 
Williams, with the approval of the 
Board of Trustees, recently ap- 
pointed a committee composed of 
two Trustees and one member of 
the administration to investigate 
the problem of alleged discrimina- 
tion. The committee consists of 
Jay Angevine '11, A. Stuart Pea- 
body '15, and Frank R. Thoms Jr.

A Step Forward? 

Campus attention is currently focused on the 
bitter and complex Delta Phi struggle, details of 
which are outlined on page one of tliis edition. 
Basically, two major issues are involved. 

First, the surface issue is the extent to which 
an alumni group can conti-ol its fraternity. In this 
case the controversy revolves around the alumni 
Board of Directors' moral, if not legal, right to 
assume complete audiority in the house. Al- 
though the alumni assert diat a financial state 
of emergency motivate their action, we wonder 
if hand-picking an entire new slate of officers, 
writing a new constitution and even changing the 
name of the fraternity is all really necessary to 
help die house balance its books. 

Secondly, it appears that the underlying and 
certainly more significant issue here is anti- 
Semitism. Off-campus speculation is centering 
upon this aspect. Great strides in ridding the 
campus of discrimination have been made re- 
cently and it appears diat this is one tradition, 
long a fixture at Williams College, which is on 
the way out here. We would wish that this were 
not the issue. 

The 26 men at Delta Phi seem to be fighting 
not only a segment of their alumni but on a 
broader scale another vital battle against this 
long-standing tradition of discrimination. The 
Record, applauding these men for standing up 
for their principles in Uiis fashion, reminds them 
that success here would be a great victory for 
WilUams College and the liberal ideals for which 
it stands. Defeat would be tragic. 

It is hoped that the student body will sense 
the issues at stake here and their importance, 
and strongly support the 26 men at Delta Phi. 
Furthermore, assuming the Board of Directors 
represents only a small percentage of Delta Phi 
alumni, it is imperative that the Delta Phi al- 
umni body as a whole assert itself and rally to 
the support of die 26 students. This is the only 
way in which the day can be carried. 

The Delta Phi case must be a step forward 
for Williams College! 


Personal Comment 

Two items of more than passing interest oc- 
cured here over the past weekend, both of which 
merit commendation. 

In one of the most significant developments 
of the year. President Baxter with obvious plea- 
sure announced faculty pay raises amounting to 
over $100,000 plus fringe benefits of nearly $50, 
000 more. It marks salary boosts of more than 
25 per cent over a three-year period for the fac- 

The situation of an underpaid faculty dates 
back to the time when Mark Hopkins was an en- 
terprizing young professor here approximately 
125 years ago. The problem is doubly acute to- 
day when WiUiams is engrossed in a tough strug- 
gle not only to maintain its present capable staff 
but also to recruit qualified young men to com- 
plement the staff. These pay raises more than 
keep this school in line with competing colleges 
of its class. Like the Faculty the Rec»M) ap- 
plauds this action. 

Secondly, the Purple Key Society deserves a 
hearty pat on the back for its highly successful 
weekend. A fine tribute to this revitalized group 
which has done an outstanding job this year, the 
affau- was well organized, well managed and cer- 
tainly well received. 


By Stephen C. Rose 

This is the season of politics. You will note 
that friendly smiles now adorn the faces of the 
numerous candidates on campus. The ItecoRD 
in its usual pubUc-spirited manner, recently con- 
ducted a search for a candidate who would 
SPEAK OUT on the numerous issues of this 
years heated election. We looked and looked. 

One candidate— a member of a well-known 
fraternity— turned us away with a scornful stare. 
"Allow the press to distort my precious individ- 
uahty?" he screeched. "Never. I shall run on my 
spotless record and may God and my country 
support me unto death.' His record was indeed 
spotless, for he had not attended a College Coun- 
cil meeting in a year, except of course the one in 
which eleciions of officers were held. 

We were undaunted however. And our opti- 
mism was more than justified. While traipsing 
through the Berkshire mud we tripped over a 
mossy stone. In dislodging this rock we found 
him, his face couched in die dirt: OUR CAN- 
DIDATE. Here is a man who deserves the 
COMMUNAL VOTE. He is unafraid, fair-mind- 
ed, and persuasive. He even has ability. 

His name is Elvis Everyman and if you don't 
see his name on the ballot, it is only because his 
nomination was supressed by a pressure group on 
campus known as the Metternich Society. This 
reactionary group has a long list of members, 
many of them in prominent positions . . . They 
expouse apathy, boredom, and disdain all ideol- 
ogy. There are many things they JUST DON'T 

Let us turn back to Elvis. We asked him for 
his stand on MAJOR ISSUES. "Fraternities," 
mumbled Elvis, "are potentially a fine institution. 
I stand for dieir COMPLETE INDEPEN- 
DENCE from some types of alumni pressure. I 
have one complaint. The people tliat fraternities 
could really help often fail to get in." Elvis con- 
tinued on in his non-controversial vein: "I think 
Williams has a moral obligation to enlarge its 
student body. Enlargement is inevitable and in 
this time of prosperity such an operation is at 
least possible. When the admissions department 
has to deny entrance to well qualified students, 
serious thought is in order." Elvis also thinks that 
the_l ibrary should be kept open until midnight. 
He admitted that this was simply an election 
pohcy to attract Williams' exceptionally large 

Elvis Everyman has no hard feelings about 
his exclusion from the election. "Such things are 
inevitable," he smiled. "People always have an 
aversion to change. Wait a few years and my pro- 
posals will materiahze." What will Elvis do now? 
"I guess I'll just sit around until the Gargoyle 

Letter To The Editor 

To The Editor: 

This Monday evening the College Council 
has laid the groundwork for eliminating discrim- 
ination in fraternities at Williams. This discrim- 
ination, where it exists, originates mostly at tie 
alumni and national level; and is manifested in 
vwitten or understood agreements with local 
chapters. In the future we hope the C. C. will 
aid in eliminating these agreements. 

However, the immediate question is simply 
whether the Delta Phi alumni can force their 
house out of existence. In connection with tiiis 
threat we feel: 1) That the alumni of any house 
do not have unlimited power to impose discri- 
minatory pohcies on their undergraduates. 2) 
That the Delta Phi alumni's action is a thinly dis- 
guised attempt at racial discrimination. 3) That 
if die Delta Phi alumni succeed in this attempt, 
it will hinder all future steps to eliminate discri- 
mination at Williams. 4) That student and ad- 
ministration pressure could be a strong factor in 
influencing the Delta Phi alumni. Therefore, we 
wish that the students would take definite action 
to halt this advance in discrimination at Williams.

To save you tiresome days of reading, days that can 
be more happily devoted to healthful winter activities 
like skiing, tobogganing, and three card monte, this 
column today presents digests of some classic novels that 
are sure to come up in your lit courses. 

The Scarlet Letter 

This is a heart rending story of a humble Boston lass 
named Hester Prynne who is so poor that she does not 
have enough to eat, nor a roof to cover her head. But 
she is a brave, brawny lass and she never complains and 
by and by her patience is rewarded: in the summer of 
1859 she wins a football scholarship to Alabama. 

Hester works hard and makes the varsity and wins 
her letter. Everybody says she is a shoo-in for All-Con- 
ference honors, but along comes the War Between the 
States, and football, alas, is dropped for the duration. 


Poor Hester goes back to Boston. It is a bitter cold 
winter, and poor Hester, alas, does not have a roof over 
her head, and the only warm clothing she owns is the 
football sweater from Alabama, but that, alas, has a 
big scarlet "A" on the front of it, and she can hardly wear 
such a thing in Boston where Union sentiment runs 
so high. 

Poor Hester, alas, freezes to death. 

Little Women 

The Marches are a very happy family — and for no 
reason whatsoever. They are poor as snakes; they work 
from cockcrow to evensong; their dear old father Philip 
is away with the Union armies; and their mattresses are 

Still, nothing can dampen the spirits of madcap Meg, 
jocular Jo, buoyant Beth, animated Amy, and crazy old 
Marmee, as the merry March girls lovingly call their 
lovable mother. 

Well sir, one Christmas the March girls get an in- 
vitation to a ball. But Beth reminds the sisters that they 
can hardly go traipsing off and leave poor Marmee alone 
at Christmas time. The sisters swear a lot, but they 
finally agree with Beth. 

Marmee, however, will not hear of it. "Land's sake, 
little women!" she cries. "You must go to the ball and 
have some fun. There will be punch and ginger snaps 
and confetti. Best of all, there will be morris dancing. 
Oh, how your father and I used to love that!" 

"I never knew father could dance," cries Meg. 

"Oh, yeah?" cries Marmee. "You should have seen 
Philip morris!" 

"Was Philip a good morriser?" cries Jo. 

"The," cries Marmee. "Philip could morris in 
long size and regular and was full of natural goodness 
and fresh and firm and unfiltered too." 

The girls are cheered to hear this and go to the ball. 
Marmee stays home all alone, but soon gets a wonderful 
surprise: Philip comes back from the war! 

When the girls return from the ball, they find Marmee 
and Philip morrising, and they cry "Huzzah !" and throw 
their bonnets in the air, where they are to this day.

The list was reportedly disre-

Fraternity Is not unprecedented.

It was reported that some a-

Varsity Hockey Six Conquers Amherst Team, 6-1; 
Poole, Leinbach Score Twice To Lead Eph Attack 

Doug Poole and Bob Leinbach 
each netted two goals as the Wil- 
liams hockey team romped to a 
6-1 victory over Amherst last Sat- 
urday. Amherst's lone tally came 
in the final period with a man ad- 
vantage when Chris Crosby soloed 
in from the blue line. 

Poor weather conditions hamp- 
ered play and kept the score down 
according to Williams' Coach Bill 
McConnick. Continual rain on the 
Ephs' uncovered rink hindered 
their superior passing attack. Wil- 
liams' two weakest opponents, 
M.I.T. and Amherst, are the only 
teams on the hockey schedule 
which do not own a covered rink. 
Poole Opens Scoring 

Taking Mike Grant's pass on his 
own blue line, Poole out-skated the 
Amherst back-checkers and scor- 
ed from 50 feet as he shot from 
in front of the defense. At 4:29 
Bob Lowden passed from behind 
the Amherst cage to Dick Gallun 
who drove the puck home from 
ten feet. Williams' third tally 
came at 14:37 as defenseman Tom 
Piper rushed with the puck and 
fed to Leinbach who scored from 
30 feet. Lowden received his sec- 
ond assist of the afternoon on the 

The weather's increased fero- 
city during the second period li- 
mited the victors to one goal as 
Leinbach tallied again, this time 
assisted by Gallun. Co-captain 
George Welles opened the third 
period scoring at 1:15 as he hit 
from the blue line. Following Am- 
herst's tally by Crosby, Poole scor- 
ed Williams' final goal with an op- 
ponent in the box. 

The Ephs out-hustled their op- 
ponents for three periods as they 
completely dominated the puck. 
Amherst's few rushes were con- 
stantly thwarted by the victors' 
excellent back-checking. Several of 
Marr's 21 saves were routine.

Frosh Beat RPI, 62-54; Lose To Redmen 


Having lost to U. Mass., 72-66, 
before mid-term recess, the Wil- 
liams Frosh basketball team drop- 
ped its second road game to 
Springfield, 79-75. Hurt by weak 
play in the early minutes of the 
game, Williams was able to play 
Springfield evenly for the remain- 
der, sparked by the 27 points of 
J. B. Morris. 

The critical point of the game 
when the score stood at 27-12 with 
only ten minutes gone in the first 
half, but due in part to better ball 
handling the Springfield point 
spread was cut to a 35-34 half- 
time score. Credit for the last part 
of the surge goes to the Frosh sec- 
ond team, specially trained in a 
zone press that broke up the fast 
Springfield offense. 

The second half was played bas- 
ket for basket until, with two 
minutes remaining, Springfield 
boosted their lead to eight points 
on two successive fast breaks and 
foul shots. High man for the home 
squad was Bob Weikel with 23, 
while the Williams scoring in ad- 
dition to Morris came from Chuck 
Colby, 16, and Pete Muhlhausen 
with 13 points. 

Purple Key Victory 

Under their newly elected co- 
captains, Pete Muhlhausen and 
Dave Bevan, the Williams Fresh- 
men snapped a losing streak on 
Purple Key weekend by beating 
R.P.I.. 62-54. Although the lead 
never changed hands from the in- 
itial advantage held by the Frosh, 
the point spread rarely exceeded 
ten and a late rally by the visitors

put the decision in doubt. The 
main factor in the Williams win 
was that R.P.I, was unable to take 
advantage of mistakes at critical 
points in the play. 

The slow start, which proved to 
be the deciding factor in the 
Frosli's two previous losses, was 
not a fault tonite as Muhlhausen 
and Bevan found the mark early 
as Williams jumped into a 12 to 4 
lead. The zone defense, however, 
employed for different lengths of 
time by both coaches held the score 
down and the first half found the 
Purple with a comfortable 34-21 

The second half was all Wil- 
liams imtil R.P.I, engineered two 
fast breaks and two foul shots to 
cut the Pi-osh lead to five. Using 
one time out and the freeze, how- 
ever, the team held the visitors at 
54 while adding two more points to 
their score. Jon Morris was again 
high scorer with 17 but was fol- 
lowed closely by co-capt. Bevan 
with 15. 

Freshmen Shut Out 
By Harvard Skaters 

The Freshman hockey team 
went down to a 6-0 defeat today 
on home ice, succumbing to a 
strong Harvard sextet for the 
Eph's fourth loss in five starts. 
Although slowed down by the poor 
ice conditions, the visitors dom- 
inated the play from the opening 
face off, forcing Williams goalie 
Dick Alford to ttu-n away twelve 
shots in the opening period. 

Rient opened the scoring for 
Harvard at 11:25 of the opening 
stanza as he took a pass from his 
center Kalil and scored easily. A 
minute later Morgan came in from 
his right defense post to beat Al- 
ford for the second score. 

Wasting no time in the second 
period. Granny added a freak 
fourth goal as the puck took a 
crazy bounce on the rough ice and 
eluded Alford's pads for a score. 
In the final period, Kalil and Hod- 
der each notched scores, but they 
were far from needed as Williams 
provided no real scoring threat. 
The Frosh meet Hotchkiss on 
home ice today.

tention, they were unable to over- 
take the powerful Vermonters, who 
gained their 10th victory while 
handing the Ephmen their sixth 
straight defeat, 80-73. Williams 
worked the ball well against Ver- 
mont's shifting zone defense 
throughout the game, but the Eph- 
men were off on their shooting. 
Only fine rebounding by Jeff Mor- 
ton and Bill Hedeman kept the 
Catamounts from wirming easily. 
Morton led all scorers with 11 bas- 
kets and 8 foul shots for 30 points. 

The game was a see-saw battle 
throughout the opening minutes, 
with Bill Hedeman scoring three 
baskets on sensational tap-in shots 
to spark Williams. The lead chang- 
ed hands several times in the first 
period. Vermont took a 24-23 lead.

ter, and the Ephmen never caught 

Williams tried hard to cut into 
this margin after intermission, but 
the Catamounts continued to con- 
trol the play until late in the ball- 

Vermont's final bucket raised 
the margin to seven points after 
Ira Kowal had sparkplugged a 
Purple rally which carried the los- 
ers to within five points with only 
30 seconds remaining.

Becket, Elbow, Wright Pace Ephs 
As Williams Skiers Take Sixth Place 
In Snowless Dartmouth Ski Meet 

By John Good 

A noon-time snow on Saturday 
partially saved the Dartmouth 
Winter Carnival from a skier's 
nightmare. It was the first time 
since 1917 that Dartmouth had 
ever been plagued by the sparsity 
of its essential element. 

Again the Big green ski team 
from Dartmouth dominated the 
ski eventJS as they swept all events 
except the cross country. Williams 
returned home with a fairly re- 
spectable sixth place behind such 
ski powers as Dartmouth, Univer- 
sity of New Hampshire, Norwich, 
Vermont, and St. Lawrence. 

Individual honors went to Dart- 
mouth's two Olympic skiers. Chick 
Igaya and Ralph Miller, as they 
dominated the slopes of Suicide 
Six at Woodstick, Vermont in the 
Alpine races. 

Williams skiers were hampered 
by falls in the Saturday events 
which included the downhill and 
jump. Only one Williams man 
made both downhill runs without 
a tumble. Placing eighth overall, 
Jim Becket turned in two times of 
55.6 and 55.0 to be Williams' top 
skier in the event. Co-captain Pete 

Elbow and Chip Wright were Wil- 
liams' other two top participants, 
but falls by each on one of their 
runs ruined their overall times. 

Wright and Elbow were Wil- 
liams' highest scorers in the sla- 
lom with combined times of 106.5 
and 114.9 respectively. In this e- 
vent the Williams skiers took sixth 
place. Despite a poor tenth place 
in the downhill, the Purple aggre- 
gation garnered fifth place in the 
Alpine division. 

Elbow led the purple team in 
both the jump and the cross coun- 
try. His jumps of 119 and 116 com- 
bined to give him a total .score of 
177.8 points. Tony Smith made the 
longest jump of the Ephmen with 
122 foot jump, but a fall reduced 
his point score. The first three 
Ephs In the Cross country finished 
in a group with Elbow leading the 
way while Becket and co-captain 
Clark were not far behind. In the 
nordic events, Williams was sixth. 

Many of the same teams which 
faced Williams at Dartmouth will 
face them on our own slopes at 
the Williams Winter Carnival, 
slated for the last weekend in this 

Wrestlers Win Third; 
Koster Still Unbeaten 

The Williams Wrestling Team 
rolled to an overwhelming 21-3 
win over the Coast Guard Acade- 
my last Saturday. 

In the opening match at 123 
pounds John Evans was never in 
trouble as he shut out Tom Cun- 
ningham of the Coast Guard. With 
one second left in the first period 
the Ephs' Kuhrt Wieneke pinned 
Dick Zins. 

McKee Scores Easy Victory 

Wrestling at 137 poionds, Wil- 
liams' captain Ted McKee took 
charge in the opening seconds and 
went on to defeat Terry Montoyne, 
9-0. In the 147 pound division Jim 
Hutchin,son encountered the Coast 
Guard's star, Bob Imbrie. Imbrie 
scored the only Coast Guard points 
of the afternoon. 

Undefeated Ephman Bob Koster 
scored a take-down in the opening 
minute against Fritz Melsheimer, 
barely missed several pins and 
settled for a 9-0 victory. In the 
167 and 177 pound divisions, the 
Purple matmen scored nari-ow 
victories. Dave Moore came from 
behind to squeek past Jim Carlyle, 
4-2, while Ted Sage defeated Hap 
Weaver by the same score. 

Williams' heavyweight Bob Hat- 
cher built up a 7-0 lead against 
Milt Percival before he finally 
pinned him. 


A Campus-to-Career Case History

"Like having your own >3,000,000 business" 

Joseph S. Manning graduated in 1950 
from Wcsleyan University with a B.A. de- 
gree and a major in Bio-Chcmistry. But 
chemistry, he decided, was not to he his 
career. He became intrigued, instead, l)y

which bill some $250,000 a month. 35 
people work under him. 

"It's like having your own $3,000,000

Swimmers Tie UConiij* 
Reeves Posts Record 

In the most excitinj; meet of the season Coach Bob Muir's 
varsity swimming team came from behind in the final relay to 
tie the University of Connecticut by a 43-43 score. 

The outstanding purfonnance of the afternoon was turned 
ill by Williams sophomore Alex Reeves who broke the Lasell Pool, 
Williams College and New England Intercollegiate ree(jrd with a 
time of 1:01.2. Captain Peter Dictz was once again high point 

man with his wins in the 220 and 
440 yard freestyle and his place 
on the winning, meet-deciding 400 
yard freestyle relay team. This 
meet keeps unbroken his three 
year string of undefeated races. 

Another pool record fell in the 
first event of the day when the 
UConn medley relay team pulled 
ahead to a 4:06.5 win and an in- 
itial point lead. 

Ide Wins 
Sophomore sprinter Chip Ide, 
out of the college infirmary less 
than 24 hours, won the 50 freestyle 
and was on the winning relay 
team. In all, Williams took six of 
the 10 first places in the meet, 
but only one Eph, Nick Frost in 
the 50, took second. 

The Muirmen, who will face 
strong Colgate on Friday and 
Bowdoin on Saturday this week, 
were aided by diver Bob Jones, 
who came from behind to win his 
event by one point, and by Dave 
Ransom in the same event who 
moved from last to third place on 
his last dive. 

Connecticut was led in points 
by Pinney, who won the 200 yard 
orthodox breaststroke, was on the 
winning medley relay team and 
was second in the 100 freestyle

Tigers Defeat Ephs 
In Weekend Squash 

Exhibiting solid strength at the 
bottom of the ladder, the Prince- 
ton varsity squash team defeated 
their Williams counterparts by a 
score of 6-3 last Friday night. 

Ollie Stafford, Williams number 
one man, continued his winning 
ways by downing the Tiger cap- 
tain, TeiTy Evans, in three straight 
games. In the most exciting match 
of the night Rogers Southall edged 
Princeton soph Ramsey Veshlage 
three games to two. Princetonians 
Jim Parrin and Ken VanRiper 
each took three straight from 
Tom Schulman and Dick Ennis 
respectively, before Eph captain 
Sam Eells put the Purple back in 
tlie victory column, edging Dave 
McMullin in three tight games. 
Princeton Sweeps Last Four 

Princeton swept the last four 
matches to give them their vic- 
tory. Steve Mack defeated Bill 
Weaver 15-12, 15-9, 14-17, 17-14; 
Bob O'Conner downed Charley 
Alexander 18-14, 15-6, 15-13; and

nal match Bill Hamilton squeeked 
past Bob Ohmes 15-10, 16-17, Il- 
ls, 18-14.

AMT's February Bill To Include 
All-College Revue, Three Stagings 

Giles Playfalr, director of the 
Adams Memorial Tlieater, an- 
nounced an unusually busy pro- 
gram for the month of February 
last Sunday. 

In addition to the very well pub- 
licized All-College Revue, which 
will take place in the theater on 
the 22nd and 23rd of this month, 
a concert reading of James 
Joyce's play "The Exiles" is to be 
presented on the 14th; "The Pro- 
posal", a brief dramatic skit by 
Chekhov, will be presented on the 
26th, and on the 28th there will 
be an exhibition by a dancing 
troupe from Smith College. 

As in the earlier presentation of 
Gerti-ude Stein's "Yes Is For a 
Very Young Man", the presenta- 
tion of "The Exiles" will be done 
through reading rather than act- 
ing. The major parts will be taken 
by Mrs. Robert Megaw, Mrs. Don- 
ald Rohr, Tim TuUy '58, and Dick 
Lee '59. 

Ibsen Influence 

Very much influenced by the 
works of Hendrik Ibsen, "The Ex- 
iles" expresses "sense of exile from 

New Comment Issue 
"Best Since 1945" 

The Williams literary magazine, 
"Comment", has recently publish- 
ed a 76 page edition which it says 
contains the best material printed 
in the magazine since 1945. 

According to editor OUie Staf- 
ford '58, the issue contains short 
stories, several poems, and an ar- 
ticle on the interpretation of the 
French theater by John K. Sava- 
cool, Assistant Professor of Ro- 
mantic Languages at Williams. 
Stafford termed Mr. Savacool's 
piece "the best faculty article ever 
to appear in 'Comment' ". 
Is.sue Is "Example" 

Editor Stafford stated that one 
of the purposes of the current is- 
sue is to serve as an example of 
the type of material that "Com- 
ment" wants for its spring issue. 
Publication in the spring issue 
will be on a compet basis, and 
Stafford urges anyone with a lit- 
erary flair to watch the "Advi- 
ser" during the next two weeks 
for the announcement of the open- 
ing of competition. 

The issue, which sells at 50 cents 
a copy, is now on sale at the Wil- 
liams Inn, the Bemis Stationery 
Store and the College Book Store.

"The Proposal", a one-act play 
by Anton Chekhov, follows the 
theme of most of his plays, the

sified a character study. 

Completing the AMT's Febru- 
ary program is a modern dancing 
exhibition by a Smith College 
troupe under the direction of Mar- 
tha Myers of the Smith faculty. 
The troupe is making tours to 
various colleges similar to the 
tours which previous Smith 
troupes have done under Miss My-

several years since one of the 
troupes visited Williams. Some en-

be featured.

19th at 8:00 when "Ivan The Ter-

Film series has been open only to 
holders of membership tickets.

Carnival Adds All-College Revue; 
"Four To Go" To Spark Parties, 
Culman '59, Beckwith '60 Direct 


For the first time in several 
years, Williams will entertain 
Houseparty lovelies with an All- 
College Musical, to be held Feb- 
ruary 22 and 23. The musical a 
somewhat spicy affair entitled 
"Four To Go", will feature husky 
Muscovites of the female persua- 
sion, willowy geisha girls, posh 
English matrons with five-o'clock 
shadow, fiery senoritas, and a var- 
iety of other attractions. 

The completed book, authored 
primarily by Tim Tully '58, is un- 
der the direction of Peter Culman 
'59, Bob Leinbach '57, and Steve 
Bullock '57. Six entire changes of 
scenery have been designed by 
Charlie Gilchrist '58, who is also 
director of publicity for the show, 
and Bob Vail '58. As an indication 
of the scope of the production, the 
sets will represent the five coun- 
tries — ^Russia, England, Japan, 
Spain, and the U.S. — to be visited 
in the musical comedy. 

Two freshmen, Pete Beckwith 
and John Costello, teamed to score 
and orchestrate the musical. Beck- 
with is musical du-ector of the 

show. Another freshman, P. Cor- 
son Castle, is the secretary of the 
production. Of the 90-odd original 
tryouts, 45 now form the cast. The 
participants Include Mrs. Peter 
Welanetz, Mrs. H. Lee Hirsche, Di- 
ana Reynolds, and Edna Mae 
Fisher, also show choreographer. 
A stage crew of 20 under Dave 
Helprin '59, will see that the 
lights and sets are in the right 
places at the right times for the 
two-hour show. 

With a locale widespread as a 
Jules Verne epic and a dialogue 
smacking of Mickey SpiUane, the 
show requires intensive I'ehearsal. 
Because of the large size of the 
cast, the temperamental nature of 
the artists, the nimiber of solo 
and chorus parts, and abundance 
of intricate cues, rehearsals will 
become longer and more frequent 
as opening night approaches. A 
full dress rehearsal, complete with 
orchestra, will be held on the night 
preceding the show. After the per- 
formance the company will strike 
the scenery and celebrate the ev- 
ening with a cast party.

Alumni To Consider Discontinuing 
Regular Midwinter Homecoming; 
Hall Cites Decreasing Attendance 

By Bill Edgar 
Tliis weekend, according to Alumni Secretary Charles B. 
Hall 15, may be the last Midwinter Alumni Homecoming at 

Paced with steadily decreasing 
attendance at the February reun- 
ion over the past few years, the a- 
lumni's Executive Committee will 
decide this weekend whether to 
stimulate attendance in the future 
or to abandon this Williams tra- 

Mr. Hall said he "thinks" they 
will vote to discontinue it. 
Lack of Interest 

Although balanced by a consis- 
tent growth of participation in 
June Homecoming and in informal 
class reunions during fall football 
weekends, the lack of interest in 
Midwinter has become acute. Less 
than fifty alumni are expected in 
Williamstown this weekend. 

Mr. Hall attributes this decreas- 
ed attendance to the current prac- 
tice of scheduling fraternity ini- 
tiations in the fall. When fresh- 
men were allowed to join frater- 
nities prior to 1954, initiations 
were held during Midwinter 
Homecoming, and they attracted 
many alumni. 

Although attendance was di- 
minishing before deferred rushing, 
"the real slip-off," according to 
Mr. Hall, came then. The atten- 
dance expected this year is "the 
smallest we've ever had". 

Representatives of regional a- 
lumni associations will meet Sat- 
urday morning with the Executive 
Committee to nominate five can- 
didates for alumni trustee. Pi'om 
these five men, all the alumni will 
choose one man to replace Stuart 
Peabody '15, whose five-year term 
ends this year. 

A stag luncheon, to which alum- 
ni, their sons, and non-alumnl 
fathers with their sons, have been 
invited, will be held in Baxter Hall 
at 12:15 on Saturday in the Fi-esh- 
man Dining Hall. An estimated 100 
people will attend. 

Trophies will be presented to an 
alumnus who has gained distinc- 
tion in his own field of endeavor, 
to the class with best attendance 
at Homecoming, and to the class 
of 1917 for leading the alumni 
fund drive.

Stegall, Jackson, Love, 
Yee Top College Voting 

By Chuck Dunkel 
Eighty-three percent of tlie student body went to the College Council polls in Baxter Hall 
Thursday to elect Duane Yee, Jack Love, Dick Jackson and Ron Stegall presidents of tlieir respec- 
tive classes. 

Fourteen men were chosen to fill positions on tlie 1957-58 College Council. Senior Arne Carl- 
son, juniors Larry Nilsen, Charlie Gilchrist, Charhe Dew and Ted Wynne; sophomores Alex Reeves, 
Len Grey and Herb Varnum and freshmen Al Martin and Don Campbell along with the class presi- 
dents comprise the council. 

The most significant aspect of 
the election was the unusually 
large portion of the student body 
which voted. Last year seventy- 
five per cent turned out while only 
fifty per cent appeared the year 
before. The freshman class again 
set the pace this year with 100 per 
cent participation, while the so- 
phomores had ninety-one per cent, 
the jimiors seventy-five and the 
seniors fifty-foiu:. 

In all the races except for one 
sophomore representative, the 
margins separating the candidates 
were decisive. In the sophomore 
contest. Herb Varnum captm-ed

Tlie complete SC and Delta Plii 
alumni resolutions appear on pace 
Z of this issue. See additional oov- 
erag:e on page 4. 

The unanimous resolution pass- 
ed by the SC members strongly 
suggests that the incoming Socieil 
Council recognize the "duly elect- 
ed" slate of Delta Phi officers 
headed by Nick Pangas '58. Tliey 
also requested the incoming SC 
to prevent any unrecognized group 
from participating in rushing in 
September 1957. 

Social Council president John 
Winnacker '57, noted that it is 
"within (the SC's) power to ex- 
clude any group" from rushing. 
He remarked that his plea for 
support of the resolution was in 
hope of saving the house from 
possible extinction.

The SC received a report from

representatives from the Alumni- 
appointed officers chose to absent 
themselves in what amoimted to

to be assumed from the statements 
in their resolution to the house.

Foehl Announces Several Improvements 
In Facilities For Completion In 1957; 
Music Department To Move To Currier 

Ti-easurer Charles A. Foehl has 
announced several improvements 
in college facilities to be complet- 
ed in time for use next fall. The 
music department will be moved 
from its cramped quarters in the 
Adams Memorial Theatre to the 
basement of Currier Hall. 

A novel "language laboratory" 
will be built for the French, Span- 
ish, and German departments in 
the basement of Chapin Hall in 
June, and additional refurbishing 
will be done in Lawrence.

SC Votes To Raise Tax 
On Houseparty Activities 

Social Council president, John 
Winnacker, announced recently 
that the band tax on fraternity 
members for the coming Winter 
Carnival will be raised from $1.98 
to $2.30. The price of tickets sold 
to freshmen and others will re- 
main at $4.50. 

Winnacker pointed out that this 
rise in cost will not be an armual 
occurrence, and that it was neces- 
sary only because of the high cost 
of supporting the skiing events 
this year. It was also announced 
that certain houses would require 
guest cards for admittance to their 
cocktail parties. 

ous over-crowding in the one lec- 
ture room of the AMT. The main 
room in the basement of Currier 
Hall, which was used for the now 
defunct Garfield Club, will serve 
as the new music lecture hall. 

In the past it has been felt 
that students have been well- 
grounded in the reading of a for- 
eign language, but have not had 
enough practice in speaking it. 
The new "language laboratory" to 
be used as a supplement to class- 
room work, is an effort to correct 
this. Eighteen booths will be built 
with recording apparatus speaking 
phrases correctly and playing back 
the student's own voice imitating 

With these additions the pre- 
sent building program will be com- 
pleted. Over four million dollars 
has been spent in the last five 
years, highlighted by the building 
of Baxter Hall, the library addi-

A Second Thought 

In the furor of the dramatic Delta Phi crisis 
this week, the significance of a hif^hly unusual 
development may have passed by unnoticed. 

Quite commendable, indeed, was the un- 
compromising support the College Council, So- 
cial Council, Gargoyle and student body as a 
whole gave the 26 men at Delta Phi and the lack 
of hesitation in doing so. They backed these men 
fully on the two major issues involved, the un- 
warranted alumni interference into house af- 
fairs and the possible factor of discrimination. 
These bold actions were a credit to the liberal 
ideals for which Williams College stands. 

In ]5articular the Record praises Social 
(Council members for their impressive resolution, 
l^iiuted at the bottom of this column, in which 
they recommend that any group not representa- 
tive of a majority of its students should be prohi- 
bited from rushing. Both the CC and Gargoyle, 
couching their ]5roposals in broader terms of 
campus-wide discrimination, also took firm 
stands on the Delta Phi case. 

Taken in 11th hour meetings just prior to a 
change in administration, the CC and SC actions 
are among the most significant— and most posi- 
tive—both bodies have taken all year. It is hoped 
that newly-elected CC and SC members will 
carry on from this )3oint both in the Delta Phi 
situation and, as outlined in the CC recommend- 
ations, they also may want to look into the dis- 
crimination problem as a whole at this school. 

The present form of student government 
here has incmred a considerable amount of dis- 
satisfaction throughout the campus ever since its 
inception three years ago. Here, finally, is an 
issue which, if properly handled, can do much to 
enhance tlie condition and prestige of student 
government at Williams College. It is impera- 
tive that our new student leaders realize that 
the first item of business they must handle is es- 
sential not only to the Delta Phi's and the frater- 
nity system, but to the status of student govern- 
ment here as well. 

It is ho]5ed that these men will act accord- 

SC Resolution 

The following resolution was passed by in- 
dividual members of the Social Council Tuesday; 

"We, the Social Council of 1956-57, strongly 
support the position of the undergraduate mem- 
bers of Delta Phi as represented by Duane Yea. 
We strongly recommend to the Social Council of 
1957-58 that it recognize Nick Pangas as the 
duly elected representative of Delta Phi and as 
representing the best interests of the undergrad- 
uate organization. 

"Should Nick Pangas be duly recognized by 
the new Council as the representative of the best 
interests of the undergraduate members, we feel 
that the new Council would have no choice but 
to refuse to recognize any other man whom they 
must perforce consider not representative of the 
interests of the majority of the undergraduate 
body. Furthermore we feel that they should do 
everything in their power— and we will do every- 
thing in ours— to prevent any group, save that 
represented by the duly elected officers, from 
participating in rushing in September, 1957." 

Resolution By The 
Delta Phi Alumni 

The Board of Directors of the Upsilon A- 
lumni of Delta Phi Fraternity unanimously adop- 
ted the following resolution proposed by Joseph 
M. Whitehead '37 and seconded by Samuel F. 
Davis '37 on January 28, 1957. The attemjjt on 
the part of the Board of Directors to implement 
this resolution has resulted in the jiresent con- 

"Whereas, the Board of Directors of Upsilon 
Alumni of Delta Phi, Inc. is most concerned a-

"Be it further resolved that in furtherance of 
this, the annexed Constitution of tlie Upsilon 
Cha]Dter of the Delta Phi Fraternity is hereby a-

Ephs^ Amherst Clash 
In Basketball Tonight 

The Williams basketball team 
travels to Amherst today to meet 
a powerful Jeff squad In a crucial 
Little Three contest. 

Amherst beat Williams twice 
last season to win the league title 
with a 4-0 record, and the mighty 
Jeffs are heavy favorites to re- 
peat this season. Coach Rick Wil- 
son's squad has an 11-3 record, 
and swamped Wesleyan 61-39 last 

Amherst center Bill Warren is 
one of the top players in New 
England, and is averaging 23 
points per game. The 6'5" junior is a fine rebounder. Captain 
Dick Anderson, a 6'4" forward, is 
second leading scorer. 

Lindeman at Forward 

Lee Lindeman, 6'5", is the otlier 
forward, with Phil Hastings and 
Dick Schwemm, leading scorer for 
the Prosh last year, at the guards. 


Kiff Knight and 6'4" Pete Jen- 
kins are substitutes. 

Williams Coach Al Shaw feels 
the Eph chances lor victory hinge 
on stopping Warren and breaking 
the Jeffs' pressing backcourt de- Williams has a 7-9 record, 
including a close win over Wes- 

On Tuesday, Williams snapped 
a six game losing streak by out-

Swimmers Face Bowdoin Saturday 

Sporting at present a 2-1-1 rec- has tentatively chosen Tatem 
ord, Coach Bob Muir's swimmers Buckley, Reeves and Memien in 

go into action against Bowdoin in 
Lasell Pool at 2:00 this afternoon. 

Muir feels that the mermen 
have a good chance of putting this 
moot in the win column, since tlie 
Polar Bears have not .shown great 
strength so far this .sea.son. The 
swimmers from New Brunswick, 
Maine, were trounced decisively 
two weeks ago by Amherst, 52-34. 

Purple backstrokers will be fac- 
ing Bowdoin's outstanding .swim- 
mer, Plourde, who holds the New 
England backstroke record at 1:11. 
He broke the old record by 3 sec- 
onds last year. 

Muir Picks Men 

To go against Bowdoin, Muir 

the medley relay, and Hyland, 
Frost, Mermen and Lum in the 
400 yard relay. 

Swimming distance for Williams 
will be Captain Peter Dietz and 
Don Lum. In the sprints, Muir 
has entered Chip Ide and Jack 
Hyland in the 50, and Ide and 
Nick Frost in the 100. 

In the two backstroke slots, 
Hem-y Tatem and Tom Kingsley 
will swim for the purple, while 
Barry Buckley and Fi'ed Corns 
will swim in the 200 yard breast- 
stroke. Diving for Williams will 
be Bob Jones and Dave Ransom. 

Army Defeats Ephs 
In Squash Matches; 
Smith, Eells Victors 

Coach Clarence Chaffee's squash 
team was overwhelmed by a pow- 
erful Army squad at West Point 
Wednesday 7-2. The loss gives the 
team a two win-five loss record. 

Eph Captain Sam Eells and 
number seven man Crosby Smith 
accounted for the Purple victories 
in the match. Eells downed his 
cadet opponent George Huff in 
four games, 18-17, 3-15, 15-12, and 
15-5. Smith overwhelmed his op- 
ponent Chuck Oxreider in a three 
game sweep, 15-12, 16-15, 15-4. 

Army's number one man. Jun- 
ior Gaspard easily beat Roger 
Southall who was playing in the 
first slot in place of Eph ace Ol- 
lie Stafford who was ill, 15-8, 15- 
16, 15-12 and 15-10. Tony Elhson 
has an easy time with Tom Shul- 
man, Eph two man, as he swept 
his match in three games, 15-10, 
15-4, 15-10. 

Weaver Loses 

Dick Ennis was disposed of by 
Don Williams, Aimy three man, 
in another sweep, 15-5, 15-6, 15-11. 
Bill Weaver won the first two 
games from cadet five man Church 
Matthews but Matthews came 
back to win the next three to take 
the match 14-15, 13-15, 15-8, 15-9, 
and 15-8. 

Bill Morrill swept three games 
from Eph six man Charley Alex- 
ander, 15-6, 15-9, 15-11. Bob 
Ohmes carried his opponent Eddie 
Borba. to five games before losing 
the closely-fought match 16-18, 
15-7, 9-15, 15-7, 15-7. Chris Schae- 
fer playing in the number nine 
slot for the Ephs was defeated by 
Army's John Bradley, 6-15, 18-16, 
15-12, 14-17, 18-17 in the closest 
match of the day. 

In an additional match not in- 
cluded in the regular matches Eph 
sophomore Ernie Fleishman swept 
three games from Tom Sybold, 
15-11, 15-9, 15-10. 

Eph Skaters To Meet 
Tougher Colby Squad 

This afternoon the WiUianis Hockey Squad engages a young 
Colby team for the second time this season. Although the Ephs 
won the first encounter during the Hamilton Christmas Tourna- 

Qment, 6-1, Williams' Coach Bill 

McCormick stated that Colby will 
certainly give his team a lot more 
trouble this time. They proved 
their potential and hustle during 
the other tournament games when 
they upset Hamilton and smashed 

Hockey co-captain Joliii IIol- 
man, who leads the Epiis against 

Matmen Face Colgate 

In what Coach Jim Ostendarp 
considers "a ban'ier between us 
and a pretty good season", the 
Williams wrestling team will seek 
its forth victory Saturday against 
Colgate at Hamilton, N.Y. The 
Ephs have lost once. 

Ostendarp pointed out that Col- 
gate, although they have lost to 
Cornell and Penn State, has faced 
top flight competition this year; 
and WiUiams is making a big 
jump out of its league to engage 
them. He hesitated to make an 
outright prediction of the outcome, 
observing that the two teams 
liave met no common opponents. 
See Page 4, Col. 1 

Sophomores Morrison, Church 
and Keltie compose the Blue's first 
line. All good skaters with plenty 
of hustle, they have been con- 
stantly gaining much-needed ex- 
perience with each game. Two 
years ago Keltie skated with Dave 
Cook and Dick Lombard on the 
first line of the Ephs undefeated 
freshman hockey team. The Wil-

<^True Facts' Conflict 
During Delta Phi Split 

By Simeral Bunch 

Numerous unconfirmed reports 
Interspersing fact and fiction have 
traversed the campus grapevine 
during the current Delta Phi con- 
troversy. The following items — 
accurate to the best of our know- 
ledge — are of interest in clarifying 
some matters. 

When asked which slate of of- 
ficers the college would recognize 
In business transactions with Del- 
ta Phi, college treasurer Charles 
A. Poehl was non-committal. He 
had received notice from each side 
that their officers were official. 

Foehl commented that the col- 
lege would continue to recognize 
the usual requests by the house. 

Wrestling . 

The Purple will probably pre- 
sent the same line-up that faced 
the Coast Guard Academy last 
Saturday. At 157 pounds, Bob Kos- 
ter will try to protect his unde- 
feated record against Colgate's 
Norm Cooper. In the 177 pound 
division, Ted Sage will tackle Col- 
gate's Pete Nebell, who has won 13 
straight victories over the past 
three years. 

Other starters will probably be: 
John Evans at 123 pounds; Kuhrt 
Wieneke, 130 pounds; and captain 
Ted McKee, protecting his 3-1 
record at 137 pounds; Jim Hutch- 
inson, will be at 147, with Dave 
Moore in the 167 lb. divi- 
sion and Bob Hatcher at heavy-

further that he wholeheartedly 
supported the SC resolution. It 
"is the fh-st one which takes us 
out of the dark" about the mem-

Rule or Ruin 

Yee also noted that the reso- 
lution, if approved, "would show 
us (the 26 members) if the alum- 
ni are after a 'rule or ruin' course 
for Delta Phi". He assumed that 
an alumni representative would 
be in Williamstown as threatened 
on Pi-iday (the 15th).

house election is headed by Nick

Ski Events, Parties, Dance, Revue 
Highlight Winter Carnival Weekend; 
Dance To Feature Elliot Lawrence 

By John Good 
New England party goers and skiers will conclude their win- 
ter carnival tour this weekend at Williams' gala Winter Carnival. 

The administration has contri- 
buted to the weekend by cancel- 
ling all Saturday classes. 

Ephmen will find two dance 
bands in Baxter Hall on Friday 
night as the all college dance 
touches off the weekend festivi- 
ties. Elliot Lawrence's drifting 
melodies will appeal to those slow- 
er, drifting-type couples, while 
jitterbug artists will find the jazz 
of Arville Shaw perfect for live- 
lier dancing. 

Famed Combos 

Lawrence has earned his fame 
from appearances at the Atlantic 
City Steel Pier. Walden flickers 
will remember Ai-ville Shaw as 
Louis Armstrong's base player in 
"High Society". 

The Saturday agenda calls for 
the crowning of the carnival queen 
and the selection of her court. The 
queen will make her first official 
appearance at the Chaprn Hall 
Jazz Concert, which will feature 
Don Elliot and Phiiuiey's Favorite 
Five, Saturday night at 8:00. 

Running for two sell-out per- 
formances on Pi'iday and Saturday 
night, beginning at 8:30 in the 
AMT, will be an original musical 
revue written, staged, directed and 
acted by Williams students. 

Ski Events 

Saturday morning the weekend- 
ers will find thrills at Mount Grey- 
lock as eight of New England's 
best ski teams will challenge the 
slopes of the Thunderbolt Trail in 
the downhill races. 

Commencing at 1:00, Saturday 
afternoon, the final alpine event, 
the downhill slalom, will be run 
off. On Sunday, the Nordic events 
will take place with the cross 
country race being run in the 
morning and jumping in the af- 

In addition to Williams, Dart- 
mouth, Middlebury, Norwich, Har- 
vard, Yale, and the universities of 
Massachusetts and New Hamp- 
shire will be competing In the ski- 
ing. Buses will be provided for 
transportation to all ski events. 

Numerous other fraternity par- 
ties will also highlight the week- 
end. The freshmen have secured 
a well-known piano team, Briggs 
and Salzman, to play at the frosh 
dance, Saturday night.

cal material. 

Russians Expel 
C. Klensch '48 

The Soviet Foreign Ministry 
expelled INS correspondent 
Charles H. Klensch '48, last 
Pi'iday, accusing him of the dis- 
tribution of anti-Soviet litera- 
ture to students. Mr. Klensch 
is the third U.S. newsman or- 
dered out of Russia within a 

Communist newspaper Kom- 
somol Pravda also has accused 
him of using student contacts 
to uncover Information on rest- 
lessness among Soviet youth. 
Mr. Klensch said he was unable 
to comment on the charges. 

At Williams, Mr. Klensch 
worked on the Purple Cow and 
was managing editor of THE 

Waring To Speak 
On Segregation 

Thomas R. Waring, editor of the 
Charleston (S.C.) News and Cour- 
ier, will speak on "The South's 
Case for Separation of the Races". 
The talk, a Williams Lecture Com- 
mittee presentation, will be Thurs- 
day at 8 p.m. in Chapin Hall. 

Mr. Waring attracted national 
attention last year through an ar- 
ticle in Harper's Magazine entitled 
"The South's Case against Deseg- 
regation". Since then he has been 
interviewed by U.S. News and 
World Report on his opposition to 
inter-racial marriage and has been 
written up in Time. 

Althougli born and educated in 
the South, Mr. Waring has spent 
some time in the North as a re- 
porter for the New York Herald 
Tribune. After leaving there in 
1931, he went to work for the 
News and Courier. He became edi- 
tor in 1951. 

Mr. Waring has been prominent 
throughout South Carolina in 
men's clubs, the South Carolina 
Plantation Association, and in cul- 
tural organizations. 

Later this semester the Lecture 
Committee has several other noted 
people sclieduled to speak. Among 
them are Eric Johnson, important 
in moving picture circles, and 
James Johnson Sweeney.

Abdul Wohabe of the Interna- 
tional Relations Club has an- 
nounced that Krishna Menon, 
head of the Indian delegation at 
the United Nations General As- 
sembly, will not speak here at 
Williams. It has been rumored 
that he would. 

In a letter to Wohabe, R. 
Bhandari, Menon's private secre- 
tary stated that vital United Na- 
tions business prevents him from 
accepting the invitation. 

New College Council 
Elects Nilsen Head 

by Mack Hassler 
Larry Nilsen was elected President of the 1957 College Council 
at its first meeting Monday night.

Brooks Will Lecture 
On Migratory Birds 

On Thursday afternoon, Feb- 
ruary 26, in the Thompson Bi- 
ology Laboratory, Dean Robert 
R. R. Brooks will speak on "Bird 
Migration and Navigation". The 
lecture, which is part of the 
Faculty Lectm'e Series, will be- 
gin at 4:30 p.m. in room 111. 

The main topics he will dis- 
cuss are: where birds migrate, 
main routes of migration, why 
they migrate, how they migrate, 
and orientation. Also, Dean 
Brooks will show 60 colored 
slides and 15 black and white 

Following his election, Nilsen 
stated that of necessity the CC 
will "devote much time toward de- 
vising an effective rushing system 
for next fall". 

He went on to say, "We will try 
to work more closely with the stu- 
dent body; and we sincerely hope 
that we will receive constructive 
criticism from the students, for 
only in this way can the CC be an 
effective organization." 

Retiring Report 

Dee Gardner, the retiring CC 
president, concluded his term of 
office by submitting a detailed re- 
port of 1956 CC activities, ac- 
complishments and failures. He 
stressed especially what he called 
the CC's failure to use "untapped 
reservoirs of student ability and 
genuine interest in college prob- 

The solution according to Gard- 
ner is in "linking the students 
with the CC", which is in accord- 
ance with Nilsen's resolve "to 
work more closely with the stu- 
dent body". Dick Fearon, vice- 
president of the retiring council, 
praised Gardner's report as a 
"representative and complete job". 

Nilsen, a member of Kappa Al- 
pha, had served as president of 
his class during the freshman and 
sophomore years and is now sec- 
retary-treasurer. Love is president 
of Theta Delta Chi, president of 
his class and has formerly been 
secretary- treasurer of his class for 
two years. Both men are now jun- 
ior advisors. 

Alumni Pass D Phi Deadline 

By Bill Edgar 

The situation in the strife-torn 
Williams chapter of Delta Phi re- 
mains shrouded in mystery. 

No action was taken by the fra- 
ternity's alumni last weekend to 
enforce their ultimatum that 26 
house members accept a new con- 
stitution and an alumni-chosen 
slate of officers by February 15. 
Lohrke Interview 

Only these facts are certain: 

In an exclusive RECORD tele- 
phone Interview, Theodore Lohrke 
'49, president of the Williams (Up- 
silon) Chapter's Alumni Board of 
Directors, confirmed late Monday 
night a report that the Board met 
at the WiUlams Club in New York 
that evening. 

"All I can say at this point," 
he stated, "is that the matter is 
under study by the Board of Di- 

Mr. Lohrke would not comment 
on whether the alumni's demands 
would be enforced at a later date. 
Alumni Meet Baxter 

In a three-hour conference on 
Sunday afternoon, Mr. Lohrke, 
Verllng C. Enteman '26 (The Wil- 
liams chapter's representative to 
the national), and the six alum- 
ni-chosen officers met with col-

Thorns. No member of the imder- 
graduate faction was invited. 

They met, according to a state- 
ment issued by President Baxter 
after the meeting, "with the hope 
that a favorable solution of the 
problem could be reached". Nei- 
ther Mr. Lohrke nor Mr. Enteman 
would comment on the meeting as 
they left President Baxter's house. 

Officers Resign 

The treasurer of the alumni- 
chosen officers, Tom Synnott, re- 
signed from his position last Sun- 

day, stating that he was "disgust- 
ed" with the entire situation. A- 
lumnl-chosen vice-president Raul 
Betancourt resigned from his po- 
sition on Saturday. 

According to reliable sources, 
Mr. Thoms, representing the ad- 
ministration, met with the under- 
graduates of Delta Phi to urge the 
two factions to reach some settle- 
ment through compromise. 

Delegations from Delta Phi 
chapters In Trinity and Brown 
were in Williamstown this week- 
end to review the situation. 

In fraternity elections held last 
week, Gordon Reid '58, of Sigma 
Phi and Dave Kane '58, of Delta 
Kappa Epsilon were chosen new 
presidents of their respective 

Reid succeeds Bill Chapman '57, 
as executive head of Sigma Phi. 
In other position changes, Ted 
Wynne '58, and Chet Lasell '58, 
were elected to replace Nick Ed- 
wards '57, and Al Mackenzie '57, 
as vice-president and secretary of 
the new regime. 

The Dekes named Kane to fol- 
low Frank Uible '57, as president. 
Pete Massaniso '58, was elevated 
from his secretarial post of the 
past year to succeed Dick Dlforio 
'57, in the vice-president position. 
John Greer '59, was elected sec- 
retary. Former assistant treasurer 
Russ Pope '58, assumed the role 
of head treasurer and Jed Diem 
'59, was chosen a- sistant treasurer. 

The only fraternities remaining 
to elect new officers are Saint 
Anthony and Kappa Alpha. Re- 
turns are expected this week.

Letters To The Editor 

Voume LXXI, February 20, 1957 Number 4 

The nth Hour ? 

The end of the Delta Phi sti-ujigle may be in 
sight. Three weekend developments lead to this 

1) Altliough Delta Phi Alumni representa- 
tives were in town over the weekend, no attempt 
was made to enforce the February 15tli deadline 
upon the undergraduates. Actually these men 
made no contact at all with the house. This marks 
the first time that either side has backed down. 

2) The administration is bringing pressure 
to bear upon both sides for settlement. President 
Baxter urged reconciliation in his Sunday con- 
ference widi the Alumni representatives while 
Rushing Arbiter Frank Thorns emphasized the 
same hne of thinking in a Monday meeting with 
the 26 undergraduates. Mr. Baxter also has ap- 
pointed two Delta Phi alumni to act as mediators. 

3) Perhaps die most significant develop- 
ment to date is the support being rallied for tlie 
undergraduates by a considerable portion of tiie 
D. Phi Alumni body. Reliable sources indicate 
that this manifestation may have been evident in 
an Alumni Board of Directors meeting Monday 
evening in New York. 

Thus, the stage is set for settlement. The a- 
lumni by now certainly must be painfully aware 
that any further action on their part could ser- 
iously jeopardize the future of Delta Phi on this 
campus. Accordingly, now is the time for the un- 
dergraduates to act wisely— and realistically— to 
bring this matter to a close. 

Settlement is probably wdthin reach if the 
undergraduates would be wilhng to compromise 
their stand somewhat. They can not afford to be 
buU-headedly dogmatic any more than can the 
alumni. To effect the principles upon which they 
waged their bemendous battle, regulation of a- 
lumni interference and the possible presence of 
discrimination, they must be willing to capitulate 
on some relatively minor issues. For example, 
they might agree to elect a new set of officers or 
allow more alumni supervision of the treasurey. 

A settlement— and as soon as possible— is 
the main objective. Reahstic, level-headed ac- 
tion by both sides right now could successfully 
inscribe the Delta Phi case into the books as a 
definite step of progress for Williams College! 

Unexpected Dividend 

One of the major arguments forwarded by 
the Trustees to justify Deferred Rushing was that 
this system would foster a deeper school spirit 
and lessen the intensity of individual fraternity 
enthusiasm. An unusual manifestation of this 
reasoning come to light over the weekend when it 
became apparent that Mid-Winter Homecoming 
here is doomed. 

When Freshman Rushing was in vogue the 
houses held initiations at this time and drew a- 
lumni back by the dozens for the event. Under 
Deferred Rushing, initiations are held earlier 
and, as a result. Mid- Winter Home-coming has 
deteriorated so badly the past four years that 
barely 50 alumni were on campus this past week- 

This means that future Homecomings will be 
centered around Wesleyan or Amherst football 
games in the fall or Commencement in the 
spring. The Record terms this development sig- 
nificant because now these alumni events will 
be focused upon all-school affairs like a football 
game or Commencement rather than individual 
fraternity functions. Whether this will foster 
more "school spirit" among the grads remains to 
be seen, but it is conceivable that this could be 
another important step in a prominent trend at 
William.s College. 

To The Record: 

By this time it is common knowledge tliat 
Friday Night ut Williams means, among other 
things, Ojien House at the Coles'. For the past 
two Fridays, from 8 to midnight, Rev. Cole and 
his good wife have extended warm hospitality to 
a hundred or more students, who in turn have 
thoroughly enjoyed the snacks, the fireside chats 
and the songfests which have spontaneously a- 
risen from the fellowship of the big brown house 
behind the Physics Lab. 

Anyone who chances to stop in after the 
flicks or in search of a study break is likely to 
find a motley assortment of guests from all walks 
of campus life, with or witliout dates, and wear- 
ing khakis or suits, depending on previous or 
following engagements. Then, over a bowl of 
popcorn and a coke, they proceed to enjoy Rev. 
Cole's guitar or hi-fi ( or bass voice ) , or to "solve 
the problems of the world". 

It seems to me tliat these Open Houses are 
unique to Williams, and represent one of the 
longest strides yet toward overcoming the strati- 
fication caused by our fraternity system. I think 
almost everyone who has availed himself of the 
opportunity has found tlie Open House a most 
refreshing change from the humdrum of campus 
life, and an excellent opportunity to meet friends 
seldom seen elsewhere. This coming Friday will 
be particularly hectic, so why not do yourself 
and your date a restful favor and pay a visit to 
the Cole residence. In tlie bargain you are sure 
to snow your date with an excellent display of 
warm Williams hospitality. 

Jerry Rardin, '59 

To The Record: 

With tlie delight of the righteous and clumsy 
vengeance of the mob, die RiicoKD, tlie student 
body and the Eastern press have seized upon tlie 
events at Delta Phi. The silly six and their equal- 
ly inept alumni have provided a magnificent tar- 
get upon which all can direct dieir wrath. But if 
the action of die six is deplorable in the eyes of 
many undergraduates, it is because of the indis- 
creet way the action was carried out— not their 
motives in doing so. 

The charge against them is that they have 
acted "unfraternally". Yet this group had twice 
the strength necessary in most houses to accom- 
plish the same thing and six times that necessary 
in others. To be sure those who act in the same 
spirit each September are usually sufficiently lib- 
erally educated to be more clever in their met- 

Now, these six are the subject of a massive 
self-righteous discharge. There is no single event 
on which all in the College could so easily be 
united. The Gargoyle, CC and SC resolutions are 
not evidence of far-sighted statesmanship or 
"bold action" as the Record implies. There is 
lothing glorious in 994 individuals denouncing 6. 

The resolutions are once more the dog's tail 
being wagged. When the REAL problem in this 
event— that of enforcing real equality of oppor- 
tunity in all houses— was brought before these 
groups last year, they sniveled and shrank and 
compromised and in the end only Theta Delta 
Chi remained true. 

Delta Phi as a house receive the greatest 
praise for having pledged this group last Sep- 
tember and for having but six of this inclination 
in their greater number. In other houses the six 
would have had greater support. 

David Phillips '58 

EDITOR'S NOTE: David PhilUps has hit the 
nail on the head. Gargoyle, The CC, SC and Rec- 
ord have indeed been righteous in their condem- 
nation of undue alumni pressure at Delta Phi, 
as Mr. Philhps suggests. But we feel that these 
groups certainly have been right as well as right- 

The real danger here is that this condem- 
nation may go no further. Unless the student 
body realizes that the same type of discrimin- 
ation exists in other fraternities at Williams, the 
example set by Delta Phi will be useless. The 
student body is certainly not justified in con- 
demning unless it is prepared to take positive 
action to eliminate the same ugly situation in 
other houses here. 

We trust die newly-formed CC and SC vnll 
recognize this basic fact and blend any righteous- 
ness they may have with constructive solutions. 
As Mr. Phillips points out this fight requires less 
bluster and more action.

Whether or not the past Mid- 
winter Reunion will be the final 
one is to be decided in June by the 
alumni society's executive com- 
mittee or by the general meeting 
held as part of commencement 
weekend. Decreased attendance in 
the last few years has put In doubt 
the affali-'s future existence. 

The 1957 edition of homecom- 
ing, which was the 27th at Wil- 
liams, attracted only 50 alumni 
out of the 106 alumni, non-alum- 
nl parents and families of both 
groups which attended. Sports e- 
vents, a student concert by the 
Wellesley Madrigal and Williams 
Singers, cocktail parties and other 
Informal gatherings marked the

26.6% of College Get 8.0 Mark 

By Ken Gillett 

Sandy Fetter '58, and BlU Har- 
ter '58, with 11.4 performances 
topped the Dean's List which In- 
cluded 26.6 per cent of the student 
body. The all-college average for 
the first semester was 6.67, topping 
that of last year. 

The all-college performance Is 
up .15 over last year, a very sig- 
nificant Increase. Heading the

Emile Despres, William Brough 
Professor of Economics, has re- 
turned this semester to his pro- 
fessorial duties after two years 
on sabbatical leave. Most of this 
period Mr. Despres spent as one 
of twelve foreign advisors attach- 
ed to the Pakistan Planning Board. 

Last night Mr. Despres gave a 
talk in the Student Union on his 
"Impressions of Pakistan". In his

In an interview with the REC- 
ORD Mr. Despres elaborated some 
of the progress the Plarming Board 
has made and some of the prob- 
lems it Is faced with. "When the 
country was partitioned in 1947," 
he stated, "there were many rea- 
sons for wondering if it could sur- 
vive as an independent country 
because it was almost completely 
agrarian and shipped Its surpluses 
to the commercial and Industrial 
cities of India". These markets 
were no longer open to it. 

Since then, Mr. Despres feels, 
much progress has been made in 
industries such as cotton textiles 
and in filling certain gaps. Ac- 
cording to him, the problem today 
centers around the government 
being set up "to perform static 
functions like maintaining law and 
order and taxation, but not to per- 
form dynamic, constructive tasks 
of a development sort". In addi- 
tion there continues a "serious

Yearlings Pin Kent 

By virtue of two pins, the Wil- 
liams freshman wrestling team 
gained their third victoi-y against 
no defeats this season, while up- 
setting Kent School's three year 
unblemished record. The score was 

Wrestling at 123 lbs.. Eph co- 
captain Stu Smith pinned his op- 
ponent in 56 seconds of the sec- 
ond period. Hal McCann also co- 
captain scored three reversals 
over Kent's Jack Baiter to win the 
130 lb. class. In the 137 lb. match, 
Jack Pay lost 7-4. Steve Lewis 
squeeked by Bob Hyland 4-3, in 
their contest at 147 lbs. while 
Cotton Pite took the fourth 
match of the afternoon for Wil- 
liams with a 7-2 victory over Dun- 
lap at 157 lbs. 

After Dermy Mitchell was pin- 
ned in the 167 lb. class to give 
Kent their second victory, Pete 
Lisle and Nils Herdlin had to set- 
lie for draws against their 177 lb. 
and unlimited class opp)onents. 

Eph Stickmen Sink Colby With Late Surge, 
Fail To Overtake Middlehury In 4-3 Loss 

By Kearney Hibbard 

The Williams hockey team broke 
even this weekend, bowing to Mid- 
dlebury, 4-3, while subduing Col- 
by by the same score. The Ephs 
now have a 9 and 7 record. 

A second period let-down dur- 
ing which Middlebury scored three 
times cost Williams Friday's con- 
test. Williams' defensive lapses 
gave the victors four different so- 
loes, but goalie Dick Marr thwart- 
ed three of them. 

Middlebury 's final goal came 
from a face-off in the Williams 
zone. Ben Kouri flipped the face- 
off back to Pete Bostwick who 
slammed it in for the hat trick 
and the victors' fourth goal. 

Although the Ephs out-hustled 
and out-skated the Panthers, they 
could not overcome the deficit, 
primarily because of theh- inac- 
curate shooting. 

Ephmen Place Fifth At Middlebury Carnival; 
Dartmouth Cops Title; Igaya Breaks Record 

Dartmouth skiers scored their 
second triumph in a row last week- 
end, overpowering seven other 
teams in the 26th Middlebury 
winter carnival, at Middlebury. 
V/illiams placed fifth in the team 

At the close of Friday's events, 
MiddlebuiT held a small two-point 
lead over Dartmouth. Williams 
was in fourth place, only three 
points behind Norwich. 

On Saturday morning, however, 
Dartmouth outscored Middlebury 

Johnson (C); 2nd, Tatem (W); 
3rd, Bonniol (C). Time: 2:20.2. 

440 yd. freestyle: Won by Dietz

3rd, Corns (W). Time: 2:36.9. 

400 yd. freestyle relay: Won by 
Colgate (Myers, Curtis, Bauer, 
Poote). Time: 3:33.0. 

by 11 points in the slalom, enough 
to insure the victory for the Green, 
despite the Panthers' slight mar- 
gin in the Jumping that afternoon. 
Norwich finished third, followed 
by Vermont and Williams. Behind 
the Purple came Harvard, New 
Hampshire and Amherst. 

Chiharu (Chick) Igaya, Dart- 
mouth's captain and a competitor 
in the 1956 winter Olympics, won 
both the downhill and slalom e- 
vents, to lead the Green to their 
victory. In the downhill Igaya set 
a new Middlebuiy winter carnival 
record, lowering the mark to 1:16.5 
for the mile-and-a-tenth course. 

Williams made its best showing 
in the cross country event on Fri- 
day afternoon. Pete Elbow and 
Jim Becket finished 11th and 12th 
for the Ephmen, with George Fish- 
er 20th. A special course had to be 
set up because of the lack of snow, 
and Middlebury coach Bobo Shee- 

Third period goals by Dick Flood 
and Dick Gallun enabled Williams 
to overtake Colby for a 4-3 win. 
Bob Lowden tallied the victors' 
other two goals. 

Williams forged ahead at 7:49 
when Lowden intercepted Howie 
Patterson's shot from the point 
and scored from 15 feet. Guy Vlg- 
ue later knotted the score for the 
visitors as he put a loose puck into 
the open net. 

Williams' sloppy play through- 
out the second period enabled the 
visitors to score twice and take 
the lead. Dick Morrison evaded 
the Eph defense to score unas- 
sisted. Colby's final goal came at 
15:52 when Morrison passed to 
George Keltic who was uncovered 
in front of the net and scored 
easily. With less than three min- 
utes left to play in the period, 
Lowden netted his second goal of 
the afternoon. 

Dick Gallun evened the count 
at 7:33 of the final frame as he 
scored from a scramble, assisted 
by Dick Flood. For the second 
time in the game, the losers had 
two men in the box, but this was 
the only time that Williams could 
take advantage of the penalties. 

John Boyden passed to Flood for 
the winning goal as Flood beat 
the goalie from about 15 feet.

Sports Scene 

liy Kurl Uirslwuin 

With the comin)^ of the Wilhains Winter Carnival, skiing will 
again move into the college sports seene. Although most of us 
know the rudiments of hurtling down a hill on two pieces of pol- 
ished lumber, the art of scoring a carnival is a lost practice. It is 
little wonder that tliis is so because the scoring of a complete ski 
meet is extremely difficult. 

The scoring of the downhill, slalom, and crosscountry events 
is arrived at by com|)uting the times of the best three individuals 
from each team out of the four which it can enter. The team score 
for these events is computed by multiplying 100 times the sum 
of the times of the best tinee men in the whole event and then 
dividing i)y the sum of the team time. This will yeild a iieicentage 
answer with 100 per cent only going to a team whose men finish 
first, second, and third. 

The Alpine Combined is a iwjier event which is derived from 
tlie times of the downhill and slalom. Each individuals aggragate 
time is found by adding his time in the downhill to a corrected 
slalom time. Tlie corrected slalom time is designed to add more 
weight to the downhill than to the slalom. Team score is arrived at 
in the same way used for tlie individual events. 

The jump is judged both on form and distance. There are 
three judges who give each jumper a style score with a maximum 
of 20 points. A maximum distance jump is also given 20 points 
with each jump less than tlie maximum given a point total from 
1 to 20. The distance score is added to tlie style score of each judge 
so that each jumi^er could receive a maximum of 120 j^oints. The 
best two out of three jumjis are com|iiited for each individual 

Team score for the juinji is calculated by multiplying 100 
times the number of points of the top three men in each event 
and dividing this product by each team's top three men. The Nor- 
dic Combined is then found on paper by using the jumping points 
and an adopted ]3oint total found from the cross-countiy. The over- 
all points for each team is then computed by adding uji the team 
scores for each of these six events. Six hundred is the maximum 
team score. 

Eph Grapplers Beat 
Colgate Team 21-10 

The Williams varsity wrestling 
squad defeated Colgate 21-10 at 
Hamilton, New York, last Satur- 
day for its fourth win against one 

Accumulating points In the 
lightweight divisions by two pins 
and three decisions, Coach Osten- 
darp's matmen were able to ride 
to the victory. John Evans in the 
123 pound class opened the credit 
column for Williams by pinning 
Martin at 8:32, 

Two Eph decisions at the 130 
and 137 pound positions followed. 
Kuhrt Wieneke defeated Bill Skri- 
tak, 2-0 while Captain Ted McKee 
gained his fourth victory with a 
5-0 score over John McCarthy. 
Jim Hutchinson recorded Williams 
second and last pin of the day by 
pres.sing Pete Glynn in the 147 
pound class at 8:05. 

At this point Bob Koster suc- 
cessfully defended his four year 
unbeaten string by decisioning D'- 
Esterre, 3-1. Dave Moore was then 
pinned by Ben Schult of Colgate 
at 1:38 and Pete Nebell won his 
fourteenth straight victory for the 
Maroon by his decision over Ted 
Sage, 6-0. The contest was con- 
cluded with a 4-4 draw between 
Bob Hatcher and Bill Werner in 
the unlimited class. 

A Campus-to-Career Case History 

Ken Boekeloo (center foreground) at the scene of a cable installalion project in Detroit. 

Ten years along in 
his telephone career 

After graduation in 1947 from 
Kalamazoo College with a B.A. in 
Physics and Mathematics, Ken 
Boekeloo joined Michigan Bell Tele- 
phone Company as a trainee. 

Today, ten years later, Ken is a 
Division Plant Superintendent in 
Detroit. Eight district supervisors 
report to him, and they supervise 
some 1700 people. Ken is responsi- 
ble for the installation and mainte- 
nance of plant facilities valued at 
$135,000,000 including more than 
500,000 telephones. 

A big jump in ten years? Here's 

what Ken Boekeloo says about it: 

"The way the telephone business 
is growing, you can advance just as 
fast, and just as far, as you're able. 
. . . And all along the way, from the 
student period through each assign- 
ment, the training and experience 
you get really prepare you for ad- 

"If you like to make contributions 
and take responsibility, and if you 
value the opportunities a growing 
business can offer, then the tele- 
phone company's the place to look 
for a career." 

Ken Boekeloo is one of many young men who 
are finding rewarding careers in Bell Telephone

By Chuck Diuikel 

Amherst took charge in the sec- 
ond half Saturday night to break 
open a tense Little Three battle 
and down Williams 72-57. This 
victory gives Amherst the league 
lead with a 2-0 record, while Wil- 
liams stands 1-1. 

Coach Al Shaw's Purple squad 
played well against the powerful 
home team throughout the first 
half and trailed only 32-27 at in- 
termission. The famous "Amherst 
Press" was ineffective against the 
Eph backcourt combination of Bob 
Parker and Phil Brown, and Wil- 
liams man-to-man defense, often 
forced the Jeffs to shoot from out- 

Amherst quickly pulled Into a 
ten point lead in the second half, 
but the Ephmen fought back to cut 
the score to 41-39 with sixteen 
minutes remaining. However, two 
missed foul shots cost the Ephs a 
chance to tie and the Jeffs bolted 
into a 51-41 lead and coasted to 
their 13th win. 

Warren Scores 22 

Amherst star Bill Warren was 
well guarded by Jeff Morton 
throughout the game, but the agile 
6'5" junior still dumped in 22 
points and grabbed 13 rebounds. 
Morton had 21 points and 8 re- 
bounds for Williams while Bill 
Hedeman grabbed 15 rebounds 
and added 17 points. 

Amherst now stands 13-3 for 
the season and is considered a 
possible choice for the NCAA 
tournament. Coach Rick Wilson's 
squad has four games left, In-

Chutist To Give 
Lecture, Movies 

World reknowned prachutist and 
sky diver Jacques Andre Istel will 
give a short talk and show movies 
on the techniques employed in the 
sport in the Rathskeller Thursday 
at 7:15 in a meeting sponsored by 
the flying club. 

Although sky diving is a rela- 
tively recent parachuting tech- 
nique in this country it has been 
popular in Europe for years. The 
technique consists of maintaining 
perfect control of the body while 
in free fall. Instead of twirling 
around, the jumper holds a stable 
bearing facing the ground with 
arms outstretched like a bird and 
he then performs maneuvers like 
a figure eight. 

The Third World Parachute 
Championship was held in Mos- 
cow last year. Istel captained the 
U.S. team which marked the ini- 
tial entry of this country in com-

Xugo^avs Happy 
With Freedoms 

Although at first confused by 
the unfamiliar surroundings of 
America, two 18 year old Yugo- 
slav refugees have been happy in 
their month's stay in Wllllams- 
town following passage from Eu- 
rope. Branko Giorglevski has been 
staying at the home of Mr. and 
Mrs. John Talbot about six miles 
from the campus while his cousin, 
Vasll Giorglevski resided at the 
Sigma Phi House before leaving 
for relatives in Chicago. 

"As long as we are free our work 
is not hard" commented the pair 
who are sponsored by 3t. John's 
Episcopal Church of Williams- 
town In cormection with the 
Church World Service Program. 
Instrumental in making arrange- 
ments for their coming has been 
Rev. Charles Laing, Assistant Rec- 
tor of the local Episcopal Church. 

The two Yugoslavs left home 
and went to Greece In 1955 be- 
cause of the pressures of Conunu- 
nism. After a year's stay In a de- 
tention camp there, they travel- 
led to Hamburg, Germany, where 
they boarded an Anny transport 
for this country. The cousins ar- 
rived in New York City on Satur- 
day, January 19, and from there 
took a Williamstown bound train.

Delta Phi House Quiet 
Over Winter Carnival 

by Bill Edgar 

Life goes on as usual over Winter Carnival Weekend at Delta 
Phi as the conflict there has reached a temporary standstill. 

The undergraduate faction, awaiting alumni action, still re- 
fuses to accept alumni-chosen officers and a revised constitution. 
Prevailing sentiment among tlie 26 undergraduates there seems to 
favor expulsion of the six-man slate from tlie fraternity. According 

to unofficial reports, such a step^ ■ 

may be taken within a week. F 

narper To Head 
School Committee 

George M. Harper, Jr., profes- 
sor of ancient languages, was elec- 
ted chairman of the Williamstown 
school committee Tuesday. Up for 
election next year, he is ending 
his fourth three-year term on the 

A supporter of the proposed new 
high school, Professor Harper said, 
"I feel that the result of the elec- 
tions (Monday) may indicate im- 
provement in the town's attitude 
toward the school." He noted that 
the opponents of the project had 
been defeated while its supporters 
were re-elected. Action is expected 
at a town meeting, Monday, Feb. 

Professor Harper replaces Mrs. 
Ralph Winch as chairman of the 
school committee. She was re- 
elected to the committee for the 
fourth time in the town elections 
Monday night. An outspoken sup- 
porter of the high school, she ex- 
pects action on the issue Monday. 

The town voted down a motion 
to appropriate $1.6 million to 
build a new high school plant in 
a special election January 7. The 
margin was 1132-981. 




Alumni activity remains behind 
closed doors. High-ranking alum- 
ni officials have steadfastly re- 
fused this week to comment upon 
possible future action. 

Meanwhile, the alumni's six un- 
dergraduate officers appear to be 
weakening, as two have asked the 
college to take their meals else- 
where while two others have re- 
signed as officers. None, however, 
have joined the 26 undergradu- 

The college administration is 
continuing to work actively for a 
settlement among both alumni and 
students with President James P. 
Baxter 3rd and Bushing Arbiter 
Frank Thorns taking active roles. 

The conflict began two weeks 
ago when the Alumni Board of 
Directors, declarmg a state of fi- 
nancial emergency in the house, 
attempted to Impose a new consti- 
tution and a new slate of officers 
upon the 26 undergraduates. Since 
the new constitution establishes a 
one-blackball an-angement, the 
undergraduates charged that dis- 
crimination was a possible moti- 
vatmg factor. 

Gargoyle, the CC and SC 
strongly condemned the unilateral 
alumni action.

With hundreds of attractive young things from near-by and not-so-near-by locales brightening 
the campus, the 1957 Williams Winter Carnival is off to a flying start. 

By far the focal point of the season here. Winter Carnival this year offers skiers, spectators and, 
of course, party hoppers an exceptionally fine fare. 

A double-header is on tap at

Baxter Elected 
Of West Point 


Williams President James P. Baxter III was elected chairman of the Board of Visitors for the

Mr. Baxter was appointed to the Board by President Eisenhower in 1954. The Board current- 
ly consists of members of Congress and important men in the world of education. 

Barnett Brings Proven Capabilities 
To New Position As College Dean 

By John Phillips 

"Fraternities play an essential 
role m college life at Williams," 
observed the newly-appointed 
Dean of the College, Mr. Vincent 
M. Barnett, when confronted with 
alleged administrative anti-frater- 
nity sentiment, in a RECORD in- 
terview last week. 

Speaking "strictly as a private 
citizen," the Political Science de- 
partment chaiiman, who will take 
over as Dean July 1, noted fm'ther 
that "a lot goes out of college life 
in a place like this if fraternities 
are absent, as they were in 1945. 
Every effort must be made to en- 
sure their continued existence by 
bringing fraternal social desires in- 
to line with the educational pur- 
poses of the college. Deferred rush- 
ing seems to be an honest attempt 
to achieve this end." 

Replacing Robert R. R. Brooks 
m the Dean's office for the 1957- 
58 school year, Mr. Barnett brings 
vast educational, administrative 
and policy-making experience to 
the job. Bom in Southern Cali- 
fornia, he took an M.A. from U.C.

Despres Gives Talk 
On Pakistan Travels 

Emile Despres, William Brough 
Professor of Economics, told a 
colloquium last Tuesday that in 
spite of tremendous obstacles he 
expected Pakistan to survive and 
progress. Among its problems, he 
emphasized the negative set-up of 
the government and the geogra- 
phic division of the country. 

His talk, entitled "Impressions 
of Pakistan," was delivered in the 
Student Union lower lounge to a- 
bout forty people. Prof. Despres 
has just returned from his sabba- 
tical leave, most of which was 
spent in Pakistan. 

"That Pakistan still exists as 
an independent country," he stat- 
ed, "demonstrates the enormous

Action, Action - Go! 

Word has it that this is Winter Carnival 
Weekend Irere. If this is true, the Rfxord hearti- 
ly applauds the action. 

Numerous reports from rehable, if unoffi- 
cial, sources from all over the country tend to 
indicate that this assertion is true. Even the Del- 
ta Phi's have stopped calling press conferences 
and issuina; statements long enough to enjoy the 

This is one tradition the Record editorial 
and business boards firmly believe should be 
maintained. We refuse to condemn the action; 
we also do not feel that the CC and SC should 
bring forward a constructive solution. In fact, 
there already is more than enough positive action 
around here this weekend. 

Whether this will be a definite step forward 
for Williams College remains to be seen, but 
ain't reading the Recobd one heck of a way to 
spend your Winter Carnival? 

Froshy Snow Your Dates 

Although it may seem blasijhemous to talk 
of books, grades and things this weekend, the 
story on page six of this issue carrying the Fresh- 
man Dean's List deserves at least passing com- 

The class of 1960 placed 22.5 per cent of its 
members on the Dean's List, the highest figure 
in 10 years at Williams. By comparison, each of 
the other three classes here managed only 16 per 
cent the first term of their freshman years. 

This tremendous advance supports Admis 
sions Director Fred Copeland's claim that the 
class of '60 is the smartest ever to hit Williams 
The average score on the College Boards for 
this group was 600-610 or the 84th percentile, a 
figure which most other schools find unbeliev- 
able. In addition no yearling has flunked out 
yet this year, one of the few times that has ever 
happened here. 

If the gentle reader will pardon shop talk 
at this point, warmest congratulations from the 
entire student body are certainly in order to the 
class of 1960 for this noteworthy achievement. 

Letter ToThe Editor 

To The liKCOHD 

It was with considerable surprise tliat 1 
read youi- editorial ou Llie Delta Phi controversy. 
As an alumnus of Delta Plii, 1 liave some laniili- 
aiity witli its problems. The anti-Seaiitisui you 
charge docs not jibe with my understanding of 
tlie facts, lo be sure, a dispute exists over 
pledging procedure. It is a dispute, liowever, 
in wliicli tlie Jewish issue plays no part. 

Having uo official capacity m tlie Delta Phi 
alumni organization, 1 feel no compulsion to de- 
fend tire measures they have taken. Their recent 
assertion of autliority at Williamstown astonished 
me as much as it did tlie undergraduates. But 
however reprehensible die actions of the aluinui 
leadership might be, 1 am able to find no indica- 
tion tliat anti-acmitisni is among tiieir motives. 

To tlic best of my knowledge. Delta Phi 
has been initiating Jews since it iiist opened a 
chapter at Williams; perhaps before. 1 have yet 
to meet one who considers liiniself a member of 
an anti-Semitic fraternity. 

Yom' accusation was a serious one. It is re- 
grettable tliat you should have been so badly mis- 
informed. Before writing tliis letter, 1 made ra-

Admissions Study 

Amherst College's Special Alumni Committee 
on Admissions has recommended that colleges 
such as Amherst examine their total contribution 
to society and not consider increased enrollment 
as the only answer to pressure for admissions. 

In a recent report, Philip H. Coombs, secre- 
tary of the Fund for the Advancement of Edu- 
cation and chairman of the Amherst committee, 
proposed that Amherst study these directions: 

(1) Reduce the time required for graduation 
for gifted students. The four-year requirement is 
not necessarily best for all. 

(2) Admit gifted students with advanced cre- 
dit. TJnder both these schemes some students will 
spend less than four years on campus, and vnU 
thereby free some space for additional students. 

(3) Lengthen the academic year to make bet- 
ter use of physical facihties which are now idle 
for part of the year. 

(4) Establish a new independent college 
which could draw on the faculties of existing in- 
stitutions and might be sufficiently self-sup- 
porting so as not to require a large endowment. 

(5) Train more secondary scnool teachers. 
The small liberal arts colleges once provided a 
large number of such teachers and steps could 
be taken to increase the number being trained 

(6) Provide a center where teachers already 
in the field could come for summer refresher 

Eph Houseparties Undergo Several 
Innovations Since Their Inception 

By Ernie Imhoff 

Some Williams campus cynics constantly bemoan the fact that 
houseparties are just "not what they used to be". Such reflection 
inevitably looks back to "the good old days" when the flask, Stutz 
Bearcat and wide-open weekend "made Williams famous". Upon 
sober retrospect, however, one will see that it wasn't too long ago 
that the terms lady and gentleman were much more strictly ad- 
hered to. 

Before 1890, fraternization with the opposite sex was as taboo 
as bare ankle. Commencement time at the close of literary pursuits 
provided the big social event of the Williams year. 
Soph Prom Was Forerunner 

In 1895 arrived the nearest Victorian Age affair to a modern 
houseparty wdth the innovation of the Sophomore Prom. Dancing 
at such an event almost ritually consisted of "about 20 alternate 
waltzes and deux temps (modern two step) with at least 30 ]5a- 
tronesses performing chaperon duties. 

With the addition after the turn of the century of fall house- 
party to alleviate football pressure and the maturing of the Soph 
Prom to spring houseparty, Williams had its "big three". The mon- 
astic code, however, was to be practiced for still quite a time. 

Houseparties at this time were exactly that. Dances of this 
variety were given at the houses and admission was limited exclu- 
sively to those who received engraved invitations. At the stroke of 
midnight, the guests were kissed goodnight and ushered back to 
the sack by compulsory chaperons. 

Informality Prevails in the '30's 

The significant turning point in the Williams houseparty 
came with me '30's. Contrary to visions of an Epicurean Flapper 
Age of the '20's here, the Eph houseparty was still starched with 
chaperons, formal dress and curfews. 

However, with the place of women elevated, the "green doors" 
of speakeasies opened, moonshine meant more than lack of inclem- 
ent weather and a new type of houseparty evolved. As another 
campus literary sheet reported after a 1934 weekend, "The floors 
were a mess of broken glass, spilt drinks, crackers and miscellany 
clothes. Every couch, chair and window ledge was full of drinking, 
shouting, happy couples." 

Brooks Cites Prohibition Influence 

Dean Brooks marked the end of Prohibition as contributing 
to much of the difference between houseparty activities and mor- 
als of the '20's and '30's, the latter period of which resembles to- 
day closely. "The end of Prohibition brought obvious and sharp 
increases in student drinking. This may have been due in iDart to 
the fact diat parents who had never drunk before took it up dur- 
ing the late part of the era and established a pattern which tlie 
children carried on." 

Time had brought changes. While an early Record headlined 
a story "Fraternities Welcome Female Guests for Houseparties," 
a more recent head proclaimed, "1034 LEGS INVADE BILL-

Williamstown Besieged By 530 Dates 

Smith, Mt Holyoke, Skidmore Send 
Biggest Delegations To 'SI Carnival 

By John Good 

Although cold weather and snow are expected Williamstown 
will be one of the hottest places in New England for the next 48 
hours. Warming effects will be supplied by liquid anti-frecze and 
abundant feminine radiance. 

At latest count 530 females, including 1957 Dartmouth Carni- 
val Queen Ginger Evans from Holyoke, have invaded the campus. 
They hail from as far south as Florida, as far west as Wisconsin and 
as far north as Maine. At least two foreign countries-England and 
Canada— are also represented. 

Bird-doggers will find the most girls at the Chi Psi house, 
which boasts a grand total of 36 dates. Theta Delta Chi and Delta 
Upsilon are tied for second with 32 each. 

In the freshman quad Sage Hall snowmen have imported 73 
girls to Hillville, outdoing their rivals Williams and Lehman by 
10 and 44 dates respectively. 

Smith again leads the women's colleges as chief sui^plier of 
Eph feminity with 73 delegates. Holyoke and Skidmore are tied for 
second place with 47 lovelies each.

Hockey Squad Loses To Harvard; 
Williams Suffers Eighth Defeat, 7-2 

A powerful Harvard hockey 
team handed Williams Its eighth 
defeat against nine victories Wed- 
nesday, 7-2. Harvard's depth and 
superior play dominated the con- 

Williams held its own for the 
better half of the first period, but 
Harvard's depth began to take Its 
toll upon the Ephs as the Crim- 
son jumped to a 3-1 le&d as the 
period ended. Prom that point on 
the Purple were never in a posi- 
tion to pose a serious threat to the 
Crimson lead. 

Lombard, Gallun Score 

Rich Lombard opened Williams 
scoring in the first period when 
he picked up a loose puck in cen- 
ter ice and soloed to beat Harvard 
goalie Jim Bailey. The only other 
moment of Eph glory came in the 
third period when Dick Gallun 
slapped a loose puck into the nets. 
By this time, however, the game 
was way out of control as the 
Crimson skaters began to domin- 
ate play. 

Harvard's big guns were Bob 

McVey and Bob Cleary who han- 
dled the center duties on the Crim- 
son's first and second lines. Mc- 
Vey accounted for two goals both 
on pass plays from his left wing, 
Vietze. Cleary only netted the puck 
on one occasion but his superior 
skating and stick handling enabled 
the Crimson to wear down the Eph 
defense and his Initiative on of- 
fensive plays helped to set up two 
Harvard scoring thrusts. 

Ephs Face HamUton 

Though the Ephmen were com- 
pletely outclassed, they exhibited 
moments of drive and hustle 
throughout the contest. Lefty Marr 
stopped thirty-eight Hai-vard shots 
for the Pmple while Bailey of 
Harvard made thirty saves. 

The Wilhams sextet faces the 
Hamilton pucksters away next 
Wednesday in a rubber game to 
decide their hard-fought rivalry. 
The Purple were defeated in toui-- 
nament play by the Hamilton 
squad, 6-5, in overtime, but bounc- 
ed back to defeat the Clintonites in 
a later contest, 7-2. 

Purple Faces Cards 
In Carnival Squash 

"In what could be a very close 
match", according to Willianis 
coach Clarence Chaffee, the Eph 
squash team encounters the Car- 
dinals of Wesleyan on the Lasell 
Coui-ts tomorrow afternoon. A 
large Carnival crowd is expected 
to watch the Purple seek then- 
first Little Three squash victory. 

Leading the Williams squad will 
be Ollie Stafford whose sole defeat 
this season came at the hands of 
Ben Heckscher of Harvard, the 
nation's number one collegiate 
player. Stafford, in compiling six 
wins has shown great improvement 
and is not expected to have very 
much trouble with his opponent 
from Wesleyan. 

Behind Stafford will play Roger 
Southall and Tom Shulman in the 
number two and thi-ee positions re- 
spectively. Rounding out the re- 
mainder of the team will be Cap- 
tain Sam Eells, Dick Eimis, Bill 
See Page 6, Col. 1

Harvard Tops Eph Quintet 69-66; 
Shawmen Play Wesleyan Saturday 

A late Williams rally fell short Tuesday nif^ht in the Lasell 
Gym, and Harvard took a 69-66 victory. This game drops Wil- 
liams record to 7-11 and ends any change for a winning season. 


Eph Wrestling Team 
Meets Winless Jeffs 

Beginning their quest for the 
Little Three wrestling champion- 
ship, the Williams coach Jim Os- 
tendarp's varsity wrestlers will put 
their 4-1 record on the line a- 
gamst Amherst tomorrow after- 
noon at 2:30 in the LaseU Gym- 

Amherst will enter the contest 
with an 0-4 record, which includes 
losses to Tufts and Wesleyan. 

Tomorrow will mark the last 
home dual meet api>earance of 
two outstanding Williams seniors; 
Ted McKee and Bob Koster. Cap- 
tain McKee will defend a 4-1 rec- 
ord in the 130 pound class, while 
Koster, undefeated in four years of 
dual meet competition, will at- 
tempt to run this year's string to 
6-0. He wrestles at 157 pounds. 
Sophs, Juniors 

Sophs Kurht Wieneke and Bob 
Hatcher, each with a 4-1 season's 
mark, will wrestle in the 130 
pound and unlimited divisions. 
Wieneke tackles the Sabrinas' 
Dick Danielson, undefeated in 
three matches. 

Bill Lockwood, making his first 
start, and Jim Hutchinson, will 
compete at 123 and 147 pounds. 
Hutchinson wrestles Bob Thomp- 
son, also undefeated for Amherst. 

The veterans, Pete Carney, Ted 
Baumgardner and Gene Sullivan, 
are challenging sophs Dave Moore 
and Ted Sage for the starting po- 
sitions at 167 and 177 pounds. 
Since all four of these man can 
make the 167 pound weight, the 
starters may remain undetermin- 
ed until meet time. 

The Country Pedlar 

State Road - Williamstown 
Phone 1101 

The Ephmen took the lead mid- 
way in the first period and were 
in front most of the half, but 
Harvard fought back to take a 34- 
32 halftime advantage. 

The Cantabs pulled further a- 
way in the third quarter and led 
52-42 at the 10 minute mark, but 
Williams battled back. The Ephs 
several times came within three 
points in the dying minutes but 
never were able to overtake the 
Ivy leaguers. 

Harvard's backcourt press both- 
ered Williams throughout the 
loosely played game, and only poor 
shooting against the Eph zone 
prevented an easy victory. Har- 
vard now has an 8-7 record. 

Wesleyan Next 

Williams journeys to Middle- 
town, Conn., on Saturday to play 
Wesleyan for the second time. The 
Ephmen took an 85-77 victory in 
Williamstown on Jan. 12, but Wes- 
leyan has won 6 of theh- last 7 
games while the Ephs have lost 8 
of 9 since the first meeting. 

Wesleyan will be led by high 
scorer and ace rebounder Pete 
Lund, who ranks 9th among small- 
college rebounders. Cliff Hordlow 
will be at the other forward, with 
John Watson at center. Watson 
scored 23 points against Williams 
in the first game. 

Paul McAIaine and Captain Jay 
Cobbledick will probably be the 
starting guards. Wesleyan lost to 
Amherst 61-39 and stands 0-2 in 
Little Three competition, while 
Williams is 1-1.

Hockey Squad Loses To Harvard; 
Williams Suffers Eighth Defeat, 7-2 


A powerful Harvard hockey 
ii'iun haiidod Williams ils eighth 
(Icfcal against nine victories Wed- 
nesday, 7-2. Harvard's depth and 
superior play dominated the con- 


Williams held its own for the 
Ijitiei' lialf of the first period, but 
Harvard's depth began to take its 
lull upon the Ephs as the Crim- 
suu jumped to a 3-1 lead as the 
period ended. From that pouit on 
llie Pui-ple were never in a jjosi- 
liiin to l)ose a serious threat to the 
Ciiiason lead. 

Lombard, Gallun Score 

Rich Lombard opened Williams 
seiinuK in the first period when 
lie picked up a loose puck in cen- 
lei- ice and .soloed to beat Harvard 
iiuulie Jim Bailey. The only other 
iMoment of Eph glory came in the 
lliird iieriod when Dick Gallun 
.slapped a loose puck into the nets. 
By this time, however, the game 
wa.s way out of control as the 
Crimson .skatei's began to domin- 
ate play. 

Harvai'd's big guns were Bob 

McVey and Bob Cleary who han- 
dled the center duties oa the Crim- 
son's first and second lines. Mc- 
Vey accounted for two Kuals both 
on pass plays from hi,s left wmg, 
Vielze. Cleary only netted the piicl^ 
on one occasion but lii.s superior 
skating and stick handling enabled 
tiie Crim,son to wear down the Eph 
defense and his initiative on of- 
fensive plays helped to set up two 
Harvard scoring thrusts. 

Ivplis I'acc Ilaiiiilton 

Though the Ephmen were com- 
pletely outclassed, they exhibited 
moments of drive and hustle 
throughout the contest. Lefty Marr 
stopped thirty-eight Hai-vard shots 
for the Purple while Bailey of 
Harvard made thirty .saves. 

The Williams .sextet faces the 
Hamilton pucksters away next 
Wednesday in a rubber game to 
decide their hard-fought rivalry. 
The Purple were defeated in tour- 
nament play by the Hamilton 
squad, 6-,'), in overtime, but bounc- 
ed back to defeat the Clintonites in 
a later contest, 7-2. 

Purple Faces Cards 
In Carnival Squash 

"In what could be a very close 
match", according to Williams 
coach Clarence Chaffee, the Eph 
squash team encounters the Car- 
dinals of Wesleyan on the Lasell 
Couri.s tomorrow afternoon. A 
large Carnival crowd is expected 
to watch the Purple seek their 
first Little Three squash victory. 

Leading the Williams squad will 
be Ollie Stafford whose sole defeat 
this season came at the hands of 
Ben Heckscher of Harvard, the 
nation's number one collegiate 
player. Stafford, in compiling six 
wins has .shown great improvement 
and is not expected to have very 
much trouble with his opponent 
from Wesleyan. 

Behind Stafford will play Roger 
Southall and Tom Shulman in the 
number two and three positions re- 
spectively. Rounding out the re- 
mainder of the team will be Cap- 
lain Sam Eells, Dick Ennis, Bill 
See Page 6, Col. 1

aroma of Schaefer beer-fresh as all outdoors. Enjoy the

Harvard Tops Eph Quintet 69-66; 
Shawmen Play Wesleyan Saturday 

A late WillianLS rally fell short Tuesday nit^lit in (lie l.ascli 
Cyiii, and Harvard took a 69-66 victory. Tiiis i^aiiic drops Wil- 
liams ic'coi'd to 7-11 and ends any change lor a vvinnint; season. 

Eph Wrestling Team 
Meets Winless Jeffs 

Beginning their quest for the 
Little Three wrestling champion- 
ship, the Williams coach Jim Os- 
tendarp's varsity wrestlers will put 
their 4-1 record on the line a- 
gainst Amherst tomorrow after- 
noon at 2:30 in the Lasell Gym- 

Amherst will enter the contest 
with an 0-4 record, which includes 
losses to Tufts and Wesleyan. 

Tomorrow will mark the last 
home dual meet appearance of 
two outstanding Williams seniors; 
Ted McKee and Bob Koster. Cap- 
tain McKee will defend a 4-1 rec- 
ord in the 130 pound class, while 
Koster, undefeated in four years of 
dual meet competition, will at- 
tempt to run this year's string to 
6-0. He wrestles at 157 pounds. 
Sophs, Juniors 

Sophs Kurht Wieneke and Bob 
Hatcher, each with a 4-1 season's 
mark, will wrestle in the 130 
pound and unlimited divisions. 
Wieneke tackles the Sabrinas' 
Dick Danielson, undefeated in 
three matches. 

Bill Lockwood, making his first 
start, and Jim Hutohin.son, will 
compete at 123 and 147 pounds. 
Hutchinson wrestles Bob Thomp- 
son, also undefeated for Amherst. 

The veterans, Pete Carney, Ted 
Baumgardner and Gene Sullivan, 
are challenging sophs Dave Moore 
and Ted Sage for the starting po- 
sitions at 167 and 177 pounds. 
Since all four of these man can 
make the 167 pound weight, the 
starters may remain undetermin- 
ed until meet time. 



The Country Pedlar 

State Road - Williamstown 
Phone 1 101 

The Ephmen took the lead mid- 
way in the first period and were 
in front most of the half, but 
Harvard fou.ght back to take a 34- 
32 halflime advantage. 

The Cantabs pulled further a- 
way in the third quarter and led 
52-42 at the 10 minute mark, but 
Williams battled back. The Ephs 
several times came within three 
points in the dying minutes but 
never were able to oveitake the 
Ivy leaguers. 

Harvard's backcourt press both- 
ered Williams throughout the 
loosely played game, and only poor 
shooting against the Eph zone 
prevented an victory. Har- 
vard now has an 8-7 record. 

Wesleyan Next 

Williams journeys to Middle- 
town, Conn., on Saturday to play 
Wesleyan for the second time. The 
Ephmen look an 85-77 victory in 
Williamstown on Jan. 12. but Wes- 
leyan has won 6 of their last 7 
games while the Ephs have lost 8 
of 9 since the first meeting. 

Wesleyan will be led by liiyh 
scorer and ace rebounder Pete 
Lund, who ranks 9th among small- 
college reboundcrs. Cliff Hordlow 
will be at the other forward, with 
John Wal.son at center, Watson 
scored 23 points against Williams 
m the first game, 

Paul McAlaine and Captain Jay 
Cobbledick will probably be tlie 
starting guards. Wesleyan lost to 
Amherst 61-39 and stands 0-2 in 
Little Three competition, while 
Williams is 1-1.

Wesmen Improved 

According to Coach Chaffee, the 
Wesmen have a greatly improved 
squad and will be out to avenge 
last year's 9-0 loss to the Ephs. 
The Red and Black have compiled 
a 7-4 record this season, and in 
their last outing they were edged 
by Amherst, 5-4. The Wesleyan 
squad is a young one with only 
two seniors among the top nine. 

Seeking their third victory In 
five starts, the Williams Freshmen 
will meet the yearlings from Wes- 
leyan following the varsity match. 
Led by Gregory Tobin, the Fresh- 
men have won over Choate and 
Williston while dropping matches 
to Harvard and Deerfield.

War Production Board 

Bamett first came to Williams 
as a Political Science Instructor 
in September, 1939, but his Wil- 
iiamstown residence was cut short 
m January, 1942, when he was 
called to Washington to begin 3 
and one-half years as a war-time 
governmenl adminstrator serving 
as Vice-Cliairman of the War Pro- 
duction Boaid's Requirements 

Ill ihe Fall of 1945, Barnett re- 
lurned to Williams as an Assistant 
Proiessor, having been promoted 
in 1942 to cii'cumvent the college 
luie against leaves of absence for 
Instructors. He became head of 
tiie Political Science department

fessorship two years later. 

ihe new Dean was called away 
in the Summer of 1948, to spend 
two years in Italy as a government 
agent, allocating and admiiaister- 
ing Marshall Plan aid to that 
country. He returned to WiUiams 
briefly in 1950, but took another 
leave of absence to seiTe for two 
more years as Chief of Economic 
Affairs with the American Embas- 
sy ui Rome. In September, 1953, 
Bamett returned to Williams,

until his appointment as Dean. 

Hastings Attends 
Foreign Seminar 

By David Lee 

Phillip K. Hastings, recently ap- 
pointed associate professor of psy- 
chology, has just returned from a 
month's participation In the Salz- 
burg Seminar of American Studies. 
Professor Hastings was one of four 
American professors taking part. 

The seminar was begun by three 
Hai'vard graduate students "to es- 
tablish a means for a group of 
j'oung European people from all 
walks of life to know more than 
they would ordinarily about dif- 
ferent aspects of American life," 
according to Prof. Hastings. In 
the past seminars have been held 
on aspects varying from art and 
literature to the social structure. 

The January seminar was con- 
cerned with American foreign pol- 
icy since 1939. Prof. Hastings pre- 
sented the nature of public opini- 
on and voting behavior in this 
country on foreign policy Issues. 

Prof. Hastings told the RECORD 
that lectures and seminar leaders, 
such as himself, are reimbursed 
only the cost of their transporta- 
tion. The students, who range in 
age from their twenties to late 
thirties and must pass very selec- 
tive examinations to be admitted, 
pay only a token fee. 

Merrill's 10.8 Leads 
Freshman Honor Roll 

Led by Deane Merrill of Deer- 
field Academy with a 10.8 aver- 
age, the Class of 1960 placed an 
extraordinary twenty-two per cent 
of its members on the recently-re- 
leased Dean's List for the Fall 

Although he stands alone at the 
top of his class, Merrill was fol- 
lowed closely by Dennis Mitchell 
and David Rust, both of whom 
compiled healthy 10.6 averages. 
Standing at the 10.2 level are Mi- 
chael Friedberg, Robert Garland, 
John Randolph, and Joseph Whee- 
lock, while Melvyn Gray follows 
with 10.0. 

11 Start Stock Club 

Hoping to learn something about 
the stock market and to pick up 
some loose cash on the side, 11 
freshmen have formed the cam- 
pus' only stock club. 

At a meeting Sunday the Wil- 
liams Investment Club took its 
first plunges: eight shares In a 
leading chemical company and 
one In an Investment trust. The 
group is headed by Sheldon Par- 
ker '60. 

Paul Gal van! is all alone at 9.8, 
and both Keith Griffin and David 
Paresky hold 9.6 marks. Five 
freshmen crowd the 9.4 level; 
Dankmeyer, Fisher, Goodman, Ni- 
metz, and Williams, while Beemer, 
Jones, Schenk, and Thomas White 
hold 9.2 averages. 

Eleven at 8.6 

At the 9.0 level are eight more 
frosh, Ahn, Coplan, KapUnsky, 
Kelm, Landsberg. Perry, Thurow, 
and Alan White; 8.8 is the ac- 
complishment of Harsch, Martin, 
Roberts, Rogers, Sachs and Saun- 
ders. Eleven more compiled 8.6 av- 
erages. Including Beal, Bluett, 
Clements, Coburn, Jackson, Lew- 
is, Pilgrim, Polk, and William Rus- 
sell, as well as Whitman and 

Achieving 8.4 marks were Baird, 
Gallop, Sherwood, Taussig, and ' 
Christopher Smith, while Berkley, 
Levy, Lipp, and Roblin attained 
the 8.2 level. Ten more freshmen 
scraped by with 8.0 averages, in- 
cluding Walter Brown, Hayman, 
Julius, Lapidus, Moore, Nicely and 
Paul, as well as George Russel, 
Stewart Smith, and Harrell Smith.

CC Group Undertakes 
Study Of Discrimination 

In its first meeting, the new College Council Monday unan- 
imously passed a proposal establishing a committee to investigate 
the problem of discrimination within Williams fraternities. 

The ]jroposal provides for the Council to set up a question- 
naire concerning this issue for the entire student body. Council 
members expressed the sentiment that the questionnaire should 
Obe organized and distributed with- 
in two weeks if at all possible.

From out of the blur of Winter Carnival, one 
event in particular clearly stood out from tlie 
passing panorama and merits commendation. 

The All-College Revue, to say the least, 
was a magnificient effort. Desjjite the dual hand- 
icap of a lack of precedent for such an all-college 
show here and a general void of experience 
through the ranks in this type of production, 
"Four to Go" was a definite success. 

This show would have been a credit to any 
college, large or small, with or without an exten- 
sive dramatics department. It was more than that 
to Williams. Beyond this, and of more immediate 
significance to house-hoppers, the Revue turned 
what easily could have been an unusually dull 
Carnival Weekend into one of the better seen 
here in recent years. 

From Director Culman and the incompar- 
able Otto down through the entire staff, the doz- 
ens who originated, propagated and pushed the 
project through on the impetus of their own in- 
itiative deserved the hearty applause tliey re- 
ceived each night. The All-College Revue very 
definitely should become not only an intregal 
part of Winter Carnival in the future, but a Wil- 
liams tradition as well. If this production was any 
example, it certainly would be well worth it. 

Hats off to all who had a hand in "Four to 

Letter To The Editor 

To The Record: 

As a subscriber to the Record I recently 
read your articles dealing with anti-semitism in 
the fraternities and on the campus at Williams. 
Of course this is an old story dating back to my 
freshman year, 1908. 

I blame the college administration for letting 
this go on all these years. There should be rules 
of the college itself outlawing fraternities or ot- 
hers practicing discriminations of all kinds. When 
I entered, Williams had probably about a dozen 
Jewish students none of which belonged to a 
national fraternity there. 

There was an AZA local fraternity to which 
one Jewish student belonged. Of course Wil- 
liams, like other colleges, has increased its stu- 
dent members and no doubt the Jewish percent- 
age of students is much higher today. 

I am not taking the part altogether of the 
Jewish students, however, I think that once a 
boy is admitted to college as a student he should 
receive all the advantages the rest of the body is 
entitled to. 

Sincerely yours, 
Edgar D. Simon, '12 

Science Requirement? 

By Stephen C. Rose 

We are continually reminded of the despe- 
rate need for scientists in America. One wonders 
what Williams and other colleges can do to hel]) 
increase the supply. As sur|)risiiig as it sounds, 
tlie answer seems to be in eliminating the sci- 
ence requirement. At present each incoming stu- 
dent is made to take two science courses. This 
system ))laccs a tremendous strain on the de- 
partments involved. And it must he discourag- 
uig to the scientists on the faculty to pour out 
their efforts in an attempt to teach freshmen 
and sophomori's who are wholly uninterested in 
tlie subject. 

By eliminating the science requirement tlie 
lab campus will be rid of all but those who are 
genuinely interested in chemistry, physics, etc. 
Most students who are forced against tlieii- will 
to take science courses simply repeat material 
wliich they had in secondary school. They get 
nothing out of the requiiement but an overdose 
of repetition and boredom. If this group of stu- 
dents were given freedom, tiie science depart- 
ment could devote its efforts to training the 
truly interested. 

More Time — More Interest 

Under tlie system of free choice the tea- 
chers of science would not have to reckon with 
the deadwood that clutters up die 1-2 courses. 
They would ha\e more time . . . time to whet 
die interest of students who are genuinely con- 
sidering careers in science. 

It can be ai'gued that since this is a hberal 
arts college, everybody ought to have a dose of 
science. 1 agree. But the way to teach die lay- 
man about science is not to force him into an 
introductory course in biology or chemistry 
which is virtually useless unless die student is 
willing to follow it up widi advanced courses in 
the same field. There should be a one-year re- 
quired course in History and Method of Science 
which discusses various scientific theories and 
their imphcations in this modern world. 

General Course 

There used to be a History and Method of 
Science course at Wilhams and the only reason 
why it hasn't been continued is that tiiere is no 
teacher available. The college should find one 
and hire him. In this way die layman would 
learn somediing about science which could truly 
be related to his other courses. At present it's 
rather difficult to relate invertebrates to Shakes- 

It can also be argued that the 1-2 science 
courses will inspire previously uninterested stu- 
dents with a desire to follow a scientific course 
of study. It seems to me that if there were free 
choice in die matter, potentially interested stu- 
dens would— of dieir own free wdl— sample cour- 
ses in diis field. I also diink diat after high-school 
most students know whedier diey are interested 
in science or not. 

Thus, the proposal: eliminate the present re- 
quired science courses and substitute a one year 
required comse in die History and MeUiod of 
Science. The advantages: the science professors 
could devote their efforts more towards training 
and interesting truly sincere students. The other 
students would have— in History and Method 
of Science— a truly useful backgrotuid course. 

PROGRAM NOTE: For tiiose students who 
relish an occasional escape from the mid-winter 
routine of college Ufe, let me recommend a trip 
to Pembroke, N. H. Uiis weekend to die Con- 
necticut Valley Mid-winter Conference. The sub- 
ject: religion. The atmosphere: completely in- 
formal. The company: students from Smith, 
Ilolyoke, Amherst and other local colleges. By 
all means, go. 

Any students who would be interested in 
keeping the library open later at night ( the desk 
and stacks untill 11 and the reading room until 
midnight) should contact their College Council 

A Tear For Poor llgenfritz 

He had no date. He had tried and tried . . . but when the 
fatal day came, there was no one to meet him. llgenfritz was his 
name. If he had been a skier there might have been some excuse 
... he could have devoted his energies to die slopes. "MTiat a 
fate to have no date", sighed llgenfritz watching the Queen and 
her Court drive by. "What a fate to have no date", he mumbled 
as rows of camels '-hair coats marched by . . . holding hands wiUi 
regimental parkas. Friday . . . Saturday . . . Sunday . , . the 
interminable round of singing dancing drinking figures . . , with 
llgenfritz, always sober, . . . always seeing double. It was a relief 
to see them go on Sunday . . . and when Monday evening came 
around, llgenfritz had almost forgotten . . . except for the Queen 
and her court. But when ten o'clock came ( If you had been stand- 
ing at the entrance to the Thompson Biology Building) you might 
have noticed a sorrowful expression on llgenfritz's face ... as 
if he were thinking, as he strode to the S. L. & M. lecture . 
"Somehow, oh, somehow, life for me in this pretty Berkshire val- 
ley is not complete." And you might have felt a jjang of sympathy 
for poor llgenfritz 



(Author of "Barefoot Boy With Cheek," etc.) 


Now in the final months of the school year, one thing 
is certain: you and your roommate are not speaking. 

But it i.s not too late to patch things up. Examine the 
rift calmly. Search your soul with patience. Perhaps 
the fault is yours. Perhaps you are guilty of violating 
some of the basic rules of roommate etiquette. 

For instance, in decorating your room, have you 
forced your proforences on your roommate without re- 
gard to his or her tastes? This is a common cause of 
friction. Iiideod, it once happened to me back in my fresh- 
man year when I was sharing a room with a boy named 
Ilimsky SiRaloos who covered every inch of our wall 
with 850 pictures of James Dean. 

"Rimsky," I said to him in gentle reproof, "please 
don't think mo unduly, but I had hoped to put a picture 
of my fiaiiceo Maiy Beth Thermidor on the wail." 

Rimsky examiued the picture of my fiancee Mary Beth 
Thermidor. "You're kidding, of course," he said and 
dropped the picture in the wastebasket. 

Well, that got my dander up, and I was mad as a wet 
hen till Rimsky gave me a Philip Morris Cigarette. 

As we all know, there is nothing like a mild, natural, 
Philip Morris. Treats a man right. No filter, no foolin' ! 
Anger melts and frowns become smiles with Philip 
Morris, all seems right in the world, and no man's hand 
is turned against you, nor yours against any man. 

So, puffing a pacifying Philip Morris, I forgot all 
about Rimsky's slight to Mary Beth Thermidor. In fact, 
with her picture out of sight, I soon forgot all about 
Mary Beth Thermidor, too, and one night at the Fresh- 
man P'l'olic, spying a round young coed over in a corner, 
I came up to her and said with a fetching leer, "Excuse 
me, miss. We don't know each other, but I would like 
to rectify that sad omission." And she said, "Oh, you 
horrid, horrid youth! I am your fiancee Mary Beth 
Thermidor." With that she stomped furiously away, and 
though I tried to win her back with Philip Morrises, she 
was beyond recall. I, utterly shattered, signed on as a 
cabin boy with the Cunard Line and am today, aged 53, 
the oldest cabin boy on the North Atlantic run. 

But I digress. We were talking about roommate eti- 
quette. Let us turn now to the matter of .share and share 
alike. Have you shared everything equally? Drawer 
space? Closet space? Study space? And here's one that 
often causes trouble — hobby space. 

When, for example, I roomed with Rimsky Sigafoos, 
my hobby was stamp collecting. I did not take up much 
room. All I needed w^as a small corner for my stamps, 
my album, my magnifying glass, and my tongue. Rimsky, 
on the other hand, was by hobby a cat burglar. Hardly 
a night went by when he didn't burgle twenty or thirty 
cats. You can imagine how crowded our little room u.sed 
to get ! Many's the lime I got so exasperated that it took 
two or three rich, natural Philip Morrises to restore my 
native sweetness. ©„„, shuiman. 1967 

ITr, the makers of VhiUft Morris anil sponsors of this ro/iimn, 
know tlial you nnil your roommate are gelling along juti fine, 
Bui if you ever do hare a Utile lifj, don't try a peace pipe.

Thomas Griswold To Present Debut Concert 
In Chapin Hall Friday; Program Wide-Scoped 

Thomas Griswold, pianist, will 
malce his debut before a Williams- 
town audience in Chapin Hall on 
Friday evening at 8:15. 

Mr. Griswold, a member of the 
Williams staff since last fall. Is a 
graduate of Yale University and 
holds both Bachelor's and Mas- 
ter's degrees in Music. During the 
past few years he has played ex- 
tensively in the New Haven area, 
and has given programs in Hart- 
ford and Philadelphia. 

The program Mr. Griswold has 
chosen embraces almost all the 
major areas of the piano reper- 
toire. The Baroque period is repre- 
sented by J. S. Bach's monumental 
"Partita" in E Minor; the Roman- 
tic era by Franz Schubert's lyrical 
"Sonata in A" which is receiving 
its premiere on the Chapin Hall 
concert series. 

Aaron Copland's "Sonata" is the 
contemporary work. Tlie program 
will conclude with a performance 
of Maurice Ravel's well-known and 
demanding "Le Tombeau de Cou- 

Mr. Griswold cultivates many 
other musical interests besides his 
keyboard work. He has toured Eu- 
rope and America as accompanist 
and assistant conductor of the 
Yale Glee Club and last year di- 
rected the Freshman Chorus at 

In his short time at WiUiams 
he has already conducted the or-

''Four To Go'' 

Reviewer Names <^Amateur Spirit' 
Cause For Success Of Musical 

By Bill Edgar 

High spirit was evident through- 
out "Pour To Go"— the all college 
musical produced before overflow- 
ing audiences at the AMT last 
Friday and Saturday evenings. 

The principal source of this 
spirit was the fact that the musi- 
cal was, in the true sense of the 
word, a thoroughly amateur pro- 
duction. All the actors (of whom 
many were on stage for the first 
time) were enjoying themselves, 
and they transmitted this enjoy- 
ment to the Winter Carnival au- 
dience. The audience responded 
to it warmly and uncritically. 

It was this spirit which made 
the show, beset by thin writing 
and inexperienced acting and di- 
rection, the success that it was. 
Music Good 

The music, written largely by 
Peter Beckwith, was on the whole 
bright and catchy. Melodies from 
the show were still oeing whistled 
around Williamstown on Monday. 

Credit goes largely to Otto Pi-o- 
lich, who supplied most of the ar- 
rangements and who organized a 

A Campus-to-Career Case History 

Al Morris (right) discusses a new amplifier system with Howard D. Thomas, one of his joreinen. 

"After training... it's up to you" 

That's what Alfred E. Morris says 
about the Bell System. "And that's the 
way I like it," he adds. "Right now 
I'm in a job I didn't think I'd have for 
ten or fifteen years." 

The job Al thought was more than 
a decade away is Plant Superintendent 
for the Hutchinson district in Kansas 
with Southwestern Bell. "You can sum 
up my work by saying I'm responsible 
for the installation and maintenance of 
all telephone equi])ment in a large part 
of central Kansas," Al says. "In times 
of emergency — a tornado, for instance — 
I have com|)lete charge of maintaining 
and restoring service." 

Here's how Al describes the steps that 
led up to his present job: "I started out 

in Bell's management training program 
in 1951. This gave ine an excellent 
opportunity to learn about all jobs in 
the company — not just the job I'd be 
doing. The |)rogram was well organ- 
ized, and 1 got a lot out of it.

tient baton. 

The fact that the show was pre- 
sented at all is largely due to the 
persistent drive of director Peter 
Culman. Assisted by John Cos- 
tello, he pulled the show through 
three hectic weeks of rehearsals. 


Technically, "Four To Go" was 
quite a professional job. Under 
the guidance of technical director 
David Helprin, the sets by Bob 
Vail and Charlie Gilchrist were 
extraordinarily good; the cos- 
tumes, especially In the Russian 
scene, were colorful and gay; and 

the lighting by Paul Hamilton was 
quite competent. 

The show was highlighted by 
the grace and poise of the acting 
of Diana Reynolds who put across 
such difficult lines as the standard 
'William and Mary' joke with i-e- 
markable success and by the won- 
derfully vaudevillian "House of 
Wax" number by Steve Bullock 
and Bob Leinbach. 

Henry Cole's imitation of Pre- 
sident Baxter was clever. Fi'ank 
Johnson overdid some scenes, but 
was pretty consistently amusing. 
Don Brown, although he has a 
pleasant voice, was too self-con- 
scious an actor.

len Avenge Tournament Defeat 
By Topping Hamilton Icemen 8-3 

by Kearny Hibbard 
With three periods or hustling hockey, Williams avenged their 
previous tournament defeat as they skated Hamilton into the ice 
for an 8-3 victory last Saturday. A Hamilton houseparty crowd 
witnessed the Epns conquer the Continentals for the second time 
this year. 

Wilhams never relinquished the lead which Dave Cook ob- 
tained at 4:37, assisted by Rich 
Lombard. Four minutes later the 
combination reversed as Cook 
flipped the puck through the 
Hamilton defense to Lombard who 

Only during the first period, 
Hamilton lost several scoring 
chances, while Dick Marr added 
several fine saves. The losers' high 
scoi'er Bill Scoones powered the 
puck into the net from 40 feet. 
With three seconds remaining in 
the period. Cook scored again, this 
time on a screen shot from 25 feet. 

After 33 seconds of the second 
frame had elapsed. Captain Bob 
Regan out-maneuvered the Eph 
defense to keep Hamilton in the 
game. However, Williams regained 
her two-goal lead as Bob Leinbach 
drew the goalie from the cage and 
Bob Lowden scored on the open 

Gallun Discourages Hamilton 

Hamilton's late-period goal was 
darkened by Dick Gallun who

puck from the face-off, Dick Flood

Defenseman Howie Patterson 
started Williams' third-period bar- 
rage as he scored from the point at

final frame as two players were 
banished from the game and nine 
penalties were handed out.

Lord Jeffs, U-S 

Winning the last four matches, 
the Williams wrestling team mov- 
ed to within one victory of the 
Little Three championship, over- 
powering Amherst 18-6 last Sat- 
urday at the Liasell Gym. 

Coach Jim Ostendarp's matmen 
came from behind twice in win- 
ning their victory against a single 
setback. They encounter the Wes- 
leyan Cardinals at Middletown 
this Saturday. 

Soph Bill Lockwood, wrestling 
at 123 pounds in his first meet of 
tlie year, gained a tie with the Sa- 
brina's Dennis Jim; while Kurht 
Wieneke was downed by Dick 
Danielson, one of Amherst two un- 
defeated wrestlers. 

Eph captain Ted McKee moved 
ahead of Spencer Bloch immedi- 
ately after the opening whistle and 
stayed on top all the way for an 
8-2 decision. Bobby Thompson, 
Amherst's second undefeated man, 
then won an 8-2 decision over Jim 

At 157 pounds. Bob Koster mov- 
ed to within one victory of a per- 
fect record during four years of 
dual meet competition, as he took 
Amherst's Garrett Tucker to the 
mat and pinned him in less than 
two minutes. 

Gene Sullivan earned four 
points for Williams when his op- 
ponent's shoulder was injured in 
the opening minute. Ted Sage, at 
177 pounds, edged Gerald Morgan 
of Amherst 2-1. 

In the last match of the day, 
Eph Bob Hatcher barely gave the 
large crowd time to get settled be- 
fore he rolled his opponent's 
shoulders to the mat, advancing 
the final Williams margin to 18-6.

Two weeks ago this column was opened in order to give the 
Williams' undergraduates a chance to express tlieir "gripes" on 
different athletic problems. It would appear tliat tlie students 
were entirely content with all matters concerning athletics, for 
there have been no letters submitted. It does not, however, take a 
very discerning eye to realize that athletic problems have not sud-

Another WiUiams Winter Carnival is over, and for many it 
was a fine weekend. But for the members of the basketball, hockey, 
and swimming teams who were scheduled away, the big winter 
weekend was lost. Many people are under the misconception that 
the athletic department is at fault in their scheduling of events for 
the weekend. The simple truth, however, is that the Carnival was 
moved back for skiing. 

Skiing has been the basis for the big winter weekend for 
many years, and it is my contention that it should not be. In say- 
ing this, I believe I am expressing the view of most undergraduates, 
as attendence records for skiing events have always been low. Un- 
doubtedly more people watched the Saturday afternoon events 
this year than ever before, but only because they had no other out- 
door sports to attend, and because they did not reahze how long 
a walk it was, and how little one could see when they got there. 

I am not implying that skiing should not be a part of the win- 
ter houseparties, but only that it should not be the basis for the 
weekend. If the Purple Key weekend had also had the advantage 
of no Saturday classes, there is no doubt in my mind that the 
weekend would have been a more enjoyable, healthier one for 
the majority of Williams undergraduates than the one just com-

WiUiams fans are biased and enthusiastic, and this is good 
when channeled down the rigiit lines. But for some reason this en- 
thusiasm often turns into unsportsmanlike conduct. The booing 
at the end of the Colgate svidmming meet, and the continual yell- 
ing while visiting basketball players are shooting fouls are ex- 
amples of why other schools do not like to compete here. Per- 
haps we can at least show Amherst some normal courtesy this

Continuing their undefeated

Amherst had forfeited at 123 lbs.,

Ephmen Win Initial Little 3 Squash Match; 
Rout Wesleyan 9-0 In Houseparty Feature 

By Jim Bobinaon 

In their first Little Three con- 
test of the season Coach Clarence 
Chaffee's varsity squash men 
routed Wesleyan 9-0 providing one 
of the highlights of the Winter 
Carnival weekend. 

Wesleyan is now ousted f I'om the 
title competition as it has lost to 
both the Amherst and Williams 
squads. Williams with a 4-5 record 
win meet Amherst this Saturday 
for the Little Three championship. 

The outcome of the match was 
never in doubt as only three 
matches exceeded the minimum 
three games, and only one went to 
five. In these matches Rogers 
Southall bested second-seeded 
John Dennis 6-15, 18-13, 7-15, 15- 
13, and 15-10; Capt. Sam Eells 
beat Al Frost 15-13, 15-14, 11-15, 
and 15-13 while Tom Shulman de- 
feated Nick Whltridge 18-13, 15- 
4, 10-16 and 15-8. 

Stafford in Easy Win 

Eph first ranking player OUie 
Stafford had an easy time besting 
John Garbutt in three straight 
games. Stafford had complete con- 
trol of the match all the way. 


The Willlams-Wesleyan swim 
meet scheduled for February 23 
at Wesleyan was dropped by mu- 
tual agreement from the schedule 
with well over half of the Wesley- 
an varsity and freshman teams 
confined to the infiiTnary with the 
grippe. The Little Three crown 
will now be awarded on the results 
of the Williams-Amherst meet 
this weekend. 

Dick Ennis playing in the fourth 
slot also ousted opponent Paul 
Beecher in three games. Ennis' 
left handed game was far superi- 
or to that of his opponent. 

In the other contests Bill Wea- 
ver bested Bill Pratt in three 
games; Crosby Smith swept three 
from Cardinal Captain Ed Porter; 
Charley Alexander bested Bob 
Alexander in three games; and 
sophomore Chris Schaefer won 
three from ninth ranked Warrln

Varsity Cagers Drop Little Three Tilt 74-67; 
Third Period Rally Fails To Catch Wesleyan 

A determined third period rally 
fell short Saturday night, and 
Wesleyan pulled away to hand 
Williams a 74-67 Little Three loss 
at Middletown, Conn. This upset 
drops Williams into a second place 
tie with the Cards. 

Down 35-30 at halftlme, Wil- 
liams used accurate shooting by 
Jeff Morton and Bob Parker to 
hold the lead to 3 points lor most 
of the thli'd quarter. The Ephs 
then pulled to within one point 
late in the period, but a spectacu- 
lar tlp-ln by Capt. Jay Cobbledick 
restored the margin to three and 
Williams never threatened again. 

The Cardinals assumed the lead 
early on their home court and held 
a five point advantage throughout 
most of the first half. High-scorer 
Pete Lund collected 15 points in 
these first two periods, as he rid- 
dled the Williams man-to-man de- 
fense with deadly jump shots from 
the foul circle. 

Williams switched into a press- 
ing defense in the fourth period 
but to no avail, as Wesleyan's 
smooth fast-break Increased the 
Cardinal lead. Only two late bas- 
kets by Bill Hedeman held the fi- 
nal margin to seven. 

Williams now stands 7-12 while 
Wesleyan has a 9-7 record, 1-2 in 
Little Three competition. The 
Cardinals have won 7 of the 8 
games they played since losing to 
Williams on Jan. 12.

Olympic Champion Igaya Stars At Winter Carnival; 
Dartmouth Takes Team Crown, Williams Is Fourth; 
Becket, Smith Lead Ephmen In Top Performance 

by Mack Hassler 

With the distribution of medals and kisses by Queen Maury Ballantyne the Winter Carnival 
Ski Meet was officially closed by a banquet Sunday evening. Chic Igaya of Dartmouth and Bob 
Collins of the University of New Hampshire received the majority of these awards. 

Winning three out of four of the physical events, Japanese Olympic star Igaya fulfilled all ex- 
pectations in his flashy display of speed and coordination. By vianning the remaining event, cross 
country, and competing well in the other three Collins, captain of the UNH team, was awarded the 

coveted skimeister trophy for all- 
around excellence. 

Competing under the handicap 
of having three of their top scorers 
absent Coach Walter Prager's In- 
dians were still able to take first 
place in the team standings a- 
head of second place Middlebury. 
Norwich placed third with Wil- 
liams fourth, while UNH, Yale and 
Harvard finished in that order. 

Ephmen Place Well 

Coach Ralph Townsend was well 
pleased with Williams fourth place 
showing even with the absence of 

, alpine specialist Chip Wright. 

* Turning in their best perform- 
ances of the year, however, junior 
Jim Becket and senior Tony Smith 
were invaluable for Williams. 

Missing third place in the sla- 
lom by one tenth of a second and 
placing seventh in the downhill 
Becket won the third place medal 
in the Alpine combined behind I- 
gaya and Gary Vaughn of Nor- 
wich. Igaya's time in winning the 
downhill was an excellent 1:14.9. 

Smith, who never jumped before 
he came under Townsend's tute- 
lage at Williams, placed secor 1 in 
this event only eight points behind 
Igaya. Due to slow conditions, I- 
gaya's winning jump was just un- 
der thirty meters. 

Also skiing well for Williams was 
sophomore Jeff Fisher whose best 
effort was a tenth in the down- 
hill, co-capt. Pete Elbow who plac- 
ed seventh in the jump and ninth 
in the cross country to get ninth 
in the Nordic combined; Collins 
won this score keeper's event. 

WeU Run Meet 

Saturday's alpine events on the 
Thunderbolt were run under good 
conditions considering the lack of 
snow. The WOC trail crews did 
an admirable job on both days. 

Attendance as predicted was 
greatest on Sunday when about 
250 people journeyed to Goodell 
Hollow to watch the jumping. 
Prankie Toms, speaking at the 
banquet, congratulated Townsend 
on an excellent meet run under 
difficult circumstances.

Williams Glee Club In Review . . . 

By BiU Arend 

Most Williams students are a- 
ware that a Glee Club exists on 
their campus but very few students 
have any knowledge of the nature 
of this group. The Williams College 
Glee Club has been hailed by cri- 
tics as one of the finest college 
musical organizations of its kind 
In the East. The major portion of 
its schedule takes place away from 
Williamstown, which possibly ex- 
plains why so little is known about 
the group on its own campus. 

Professor Nollner, since he took 
over the Glee Club in 1951, has 
tried to maintain the high stan- 
dards of singing serious music. 
About half of its repertoire is for 
mixed-chorus, sung with choruses 
from various women's colleges. 

The other half of its music is 
for male voices alone. The organi- 
zation attempts to develop as wide 
a variety of repertoire as possible, 
ranging from the works of com- 
posers such as Bach, Mozart, 
Brahms, and Haydn, to skillful- 
ly arranged folk-songs from many 
lands. Such appropriate male 
chorus types as drinking songs, 
soldier songs, and especially songs 
with humor are seized upon when 
they are particularly fine exam- 
ples of their type. 

Why Serious Music? 

Professor Nollner cites two ma- 
jor reasons why he chose to de- 
velop the Glee Club into a polish- 
ed singing group, rather than 
making it more informal, which 

Williams CoUege Glee Club with Walter Nollner 

might make it more popular with 
the students. "In the first place, 
my experience has been that it Is 
precisely those works of greatest 
stature that the members find 
growing in their estimation with 
repeated rehearsals. The Glee Club 
becomes impatient with the obvi- 
ous after a while, and yet returns 
with increasing pleasure to the 
music which it finds to have great- 
er depth". 

"In the second place, the Glee 
Club feels that to give its members 
any music but the finest that can 
be found, whatever the type, is to 
do its members a disservice. The 
Glee Club members are quick to 

realize that their experience with 
the present diverse repertoire Is 
infinitely more rewarding than the 
equivalent of, say, a Plash Gordon 
comic book or the latest fifth-rate 
teevee atrocity, savored for the 
moment but forgotten in about the 
same length of time." 

Social Advantages 

The Williams Glee Clubs of the 
20's enjoyed the ultimate in social 
advantages which can be gained 
from a group of this sort. For sev- 
eral summers, a major steamship 
line sponsored the group on a trip 
to Bermuda. 

The Club would perform on the 

ship traveling to and from the 
Island, and give several perform- 
ances at various hotels on the Is- 
land for the then retired or idle 
rich who inhabited Bermuda at 
that time of the year. 

The present Glee Club cannot 
boast of any such opportunities 
but has a varied social program. 
Appearances with women's chor- 
uses from such colleges as Smith, 
Radcliffe, Vassar and Wellesley 
foi-m a large part of the Glee 
Club's annual schedule. These af- 
ford an opportunity to perform 
many of the landmarks of choral 
literature written for mixed voices, 
and offer many non-musical de- 
lights as valuable by-products. 

Varied Repertoire 

This year's Glee Club is sing- 
ing the entire oratorio by Haydn, 
"The Creation", one of the great- 
est choral works in existence. It 
Is also performing selections from 
various works by Bach and Han- 
del for mixed choruses. 

For male voices the selection is 
more varied, including selections 
from comic opera, nineteenth- 
century partsongs (of Dvorak, 
Schumaim and Schubert), a folk- 
song group ranging from the so- 
liloquy of a peddlar to an English 
ballad concerning a Robin-Hood 
like folk figure. 

The cuiTont schedule involves 
five concerts. The first event was 
a program with the Radcliffe 
choral society, Feb. 9. Also includ- 
ed are an Evensong Service in St. 

Thomas Church, Manhattan, on 
March 3; and two concerts with 
the Smith College Choir. 

Planned for the future are ex- 
change concerts with the Welles- 
ley College Choir and continued 
performances with the Smith Col- 
lege Choir. A definite possibility 
for sometime In the near future, is 
the presentation of a large choral 
work with one of the major East- 
ern symphony orchestras and one 
of the Smith singing groups. 

Concerts In Montreal and New 
York City are also planned. The 
appearance this year of the Glee 
Club at St. Thomas Church in 
Manhattan may initiate a chain of 
New York City performances.

Well, Smitty and his squad got in a few good licks, but the weeds were 
full of redskins and they were soon hauled in to see the Top Dog Indian 
. . . Powhatan. 

"Smith," thundered old fuU-of-feathers, "I'm tired of you punctiuring my 
in-laws; we're going to do a disappearing act with your head!" 

"Wild, man," said the good captain. "A little Rock 'n Roll, eh?" 

This humor was lost on the chief, and he was all set to shorten Smith by 
about nine inches when in walked Princess Pocahontas ... a nifty little 
number who'd been out scalping tickets to Cleveland baseball games. 

Pokey sized up the situation, and screamed (in perfect Iroquois) "Man, it 
looks hke my ship came in . . . that beard! That outfit! TTiat build! Oh, 
Daddy-O — spare that cat!" 

"Pokey," said Dad, "How many times have I told you not to come messin' 
around here during initiation! We're playing to a full house, and now I 
have to refund all those beads." But he was pretty sweet on the kid, and 
laid aside the meat cleaver. 

Well, Captain John was so happy about his reprieve he broke out a barrel 
of Budwe'jer . . . and popped for the tribe. 

Wouldn't you? 

MORAL: When you want to treat the tribe {pr, betteryet, doasolo with a squaw), make it Budweiser. . .the chief of beers!

Lustenberger Chosen 
New S.C. President 

Members of the 1957-58 Social 
Council elected Lou Lustenberger 
'58, President and issued a new

the Junior Advisers. His Secretary- 
Treasurer is Gordon Reid '58, who 
talces over the position formerly 
held by Jack Tucker '57. President 
of Sigma Phi, Reld has also served 
on the football, wrestling and la- 
crosse teams. 

Discriinination Issue 

In a statement of future SC 
plans, Lustenberger expressed the 
hope that "we will be able to take 
a far more active part in the cam- 
pus issues which come before us." 
He listed the fraternity discrimi- 
nation issue as the object of 
greatest immediate concern, sche- 
duling a detailed investigation of 
the problem at a closed meeting 
of the SC next Tuesday night. 

In its first official act the new 
SC reaffirmed the resolution of 
its predecessor concerning the im- 
mediate problem at Delta Phi. The

Debaters Finish 
Tournament Tour 

The Williams Debating Team 
finished its February tournament 
tour witli a fair showing at the 
MIT tournament and a high 
standing at the McGill Winter 
Carnival tournament. 

Competing against the best col- 
leges in the East, Adelphic Union 
speakers managed only a middle 
place in the MIT tournament, but 
a more rounded attack at McGlll 
produced better results. 

At MIT Dave Phillips and Kurt 
Rosen out-talked all challengers 
with the exception of a Bates Col- 
lege team as they upheld the nega- 
tive side of a topic concerning di- 
rect foreign aid. Toby Smith and 
Harvey Carter, taking the affir- 
mative stand, defeated only Maine, 
while losing to four other teams. 

The McGill tourney saw Wil- 
liams go undefeated in both the 
affirmative and negative argu- 
ments, but a higher aggregation of 
points raised Pittsburg debaters a-

Campus Telephone Dial System For Administration 
To Initiate Service Soon; Will Speed Operations 

By Warren Clark, Jr. 

An Independent dial telephone 
system for the college adminis- 
tration will be ready for use with- 
in a month, according to Treasurer 
Charles A. Foehl. 

The dial system itself will ser- 
vice about two hundred telephones, 
making the frequent intra-admin- 
istratlon calls more rapid and 

In addition there will be a 
switchboard to take incoming calls. 
This means that there will be a 
single telephone number (1480) for 
the college Instead of the present 
113 separate lines. The switch- 
board will be manned twenty-four 
hours a day by two operators, the 
night watchmen and possibly by 
student labor. The whole system Is 
eventually expected to save the 
college money on local calls. 

No Fraternities 

Dormitories and fraternity hou- 
ses will not be on the new system. 
There had been a plan proposed 
whereby telephones for Incoming 
calls would be placed In each 

Gargoyle Study Cites 
Infirmary Problems 

In the first of a series of four special reports relating to current 
cam|)us ]irobleins, Gargoyle today issued its recommendations for 
iniiiroviiig relations between students and the college Infirmary. 

Gargoyle's two most significant suggestions were that a com- 
mittee of two or three students be appointed as a liaison between 
the student body and the Infirmary and that more satisfactory 
clinic hours be arranged (e.g. 4 to 6 p. m. instead of 1:30 to 3:30 

Dr. Thomas V. Urmy, Dii'ector of Health, when told of the 
report, conunented, "I would be most happy to cooperate in any 

way possible with such a liaison 
committee. I think it would be of 
threat service to both the students 
and the Infirmary." 

Paul Phillips '57, chairman of 
Gargoyle Infirmary committee 

Wright Questions 
Entrance Exams 

In his recent armual report 
Smith College President Benja- 
min F. Wright questioned the a- 
bility of the college board exams 
to predict success in college. 

Although he admitted that the 
tests could not be completely dis- 
carded, he affirmed that the ob- 
jective-type questions are far 
from a perfect indication of how 
effectively the student can make 
use of information. 

The exams, he added, can tell 
very little about seriousness of 
purpose, staying power, and ca- 
pacity for Intellectual and moral 

Williams Director of Admissions 
Frederick Copeland said the col- 
lege board exams "cannot be con- 
sidered the infallible predictor." 
Potential success at college, he 
continued, can be predicted only 
"by success at the school as meas- 
ured by the school's own stan- 

Although he said that the college 
board tests measure aptitude, Mr. 
Copeland agreed with Dr. Wright 
that "what the aptitudes miss is 
the attitudes." 

Basic Causes 

Headed by Paul Phillips, the 
Gargoyle committee cited as the 
problem's basic causes the misun- 
derstood attitude of infirmary em- 
ployees, students' preference for 
their own family doctors, the re- 
sulting lack of confidence in and 
of consideration for the Infirmary 
and too little coordination between 
students and Infii'mary. ,;: 

The report goes on to recom- 
mend that the Infirmary offer 
doctor and X-Ray service on week- 
ends for accidents, that the pre- 
sent "blue slip" system for ath- 
letics be maintained and that the 
Infirmary "increase efforts to 
keep up the morale of its em- 
ployees and impress upon them 
the fact that . . . the student does

Town Settles Land 
Question At Meeting 

At the town meeting Monday re- 
sidents of Williamstown carried by 
voice vote a motion to dismiss the 
controversial question of whether 
the town should take by right of 
Eminent Domain the land be- 
tween Church Street and Stetson 
Road, currently owned by the col- 

Selectman Louis Rudnick '15, 
then introduced a motion to pur- 
chase land on Cole Avenue and 
Stetson Road to be used as a site 
for wells to supplement the town 
water supply. With the approval 
of this motion, came an appropria- 
tion of $7,100 for purchasing and 

Other motions passed were a 
very large 1957 budget of $1,004,

men serve without pay.

If The Shoe Fits 

The letter from the Purple Key Society car 
ried elsewhere on this page touches upon a very 
sore spot with the local athletic department. 

For a considerable period of time the athletic 
department has been receiving complaints from 
visiting teams concerning poor sportsmanship of 
Williams students. One coach even threatened to 
cancel his contest here this year for that very rea- 

The fact that the Purple Key felt the situation 
merited such a letter, despite tlie fact that it thus 
widely publicizes the unfavorable condition, 
proves its seriousness. 

This is not a new problem at Williams; no 
doubt it is old stuff from pre-coUege years to 
most students here. There is no reason why the 
Purple Key should feel compelled to submit such 
a letter. It is hoped that this is the last such ad- 
monition to find its way into these columns.

Letters To The Editor 

To The Editor: 

The time has come to bring to the attention of the student 
body the fact tliat the quality of its sportsmanship displayed to 
opponents has been of an uncharacteristic nature. While we are 
all concerned with preserving the impression of the Williams Col- 
lege "gentleman", we tend to destroy this impression when we are 
spectators at athletic events. This display of poor sportsmanship 
has developed for Williams a poor reputation among New Eng- 
land colleges and especially among athletic coaches and officials. 

Although this problem has not been severe this year as it 
has been in the past, there is room for much improvement. This 
weekend we have tlie opportunity to demonstrate that we can be 
gentlemen in all aspects of college life. An admittedly outstand- 
ing Amherst basketball team vWll play Williams in a traditional 
Little Three contest. While we sincerely urge students from both 
schools to enthusiastically support tlieir teams, we appeal to the 
better judgement of all spectators to think twice before displaying 
unsportsmanlike conduct. 


To The Editor: 

You probably must wonder what impressions a girl from a 
mid-western campus must get (over Winter Carnival Weekend) 
and that's the reason I'm writing this. 

From the stereotype that we midwestei-ners have of the east- 
ern schools, my first and main comment is that WE WERE 
WRONG. When a girl here thinks about an eastern school, she 
pictures a very cultural setting with the coeds similar to the Eng- 
lish debutante in "Four to Go". Proper dress for every occasion; 
few, if any, harsh words or idle chatter; yet a great deal of fun at 
the right time. 

However, I was thoroughly surprised. Not only did the girls 
not fit into our set pattern out they went to opposite extremes. 
The girls from Smith and Slddmore seem to regard Bermuda 
shorts and Knee Sox proper wearing apparel for concerts and plays 
and other such events, whereas we in the midwest feel this sort 
of clothing is appropriate only in the dorm or on the tennis court, 
but certainly never at dinner or on a regular date. 

The other stereotypes, too, were faulty; the many girls I met 
seemed very similar to our coeds. They are certainly no more 
culturally-minded as far as I could tell, tor our students are con- 
stantly attending plays and concerts in this area presented by 
various groups. 

This is not intended to be critical, but merely to point out 
interesting differences between our picture of these students and 
reality. All in all, however, I found no real barriers between the 
different sections of the country. Some students are more casual or 
more sophisticated than others, but they're really pretty "All-

Hockey Statistics 

Sextet Crushes AlC; 
Face Jeffs In Finale 

Bob Leinbach's goal with two seconds left in the game put 
the Williams Hockey Team in double scoring figures for the second 
time this year as they trounced A.I.C, 10-3. Bob Lowden collected 
four assists and one goal to become the team's high scorer 

Leinbach's third-period goal, 

which gave him the hat trick, was 
the Ephs' lone tally in this frame. 
As in previous games, inaccurate 
shooting cost Williams many op- 
portunities during the period. The 
Ephs shelled A. I. C. goalie Bill 
Bennett with 65 shots. 

All of A. I. C.'s goals came on 
soloes. Goalie Denny Doyle stop- 
ped two other soloes as he collected 
15 saves. A. I. C.'s "break-con- 
scious" wings picked up three 
goals, but they definitely put an 
extra burden on their defense as 
Eph wings were left uncovered. 

Rick DriscoU drove in Dave 
Cooic's rebound at 2:49 to open 
the scoring. Lombard also picked 
up an assist on the play. Leinbach 
scored his first goal at 10:03 as

Eph Squashmen 
To Battle Jeffs 

With the 'Little Three' squash 
crown on the line, the Williams 
racquetmen will face the Sabrinas 
of Amherst on the Pratt Field 
House courts Saturday. Having de- 
feated Wesleyan 9-0 last Saturday, 
the Ephs will be the favorites in 
today's match. 

Earlier this season Amherst nos- 
ed out the Cardinals, 5-4. The 
Jeffs' record stands at 4-5. 

Playing in the number one po- 
sition for Williams, OUie Stafford 
will face Amherst's Dillon, who has 
compiled a fine record this year. 
This will be Stafford's final ap- 
pearance prior to the National In- 
ter-coUegiates in March. 

Same Line-up 

Coach Chaffee is expected to 
field the same team as that which 
downed Wesleyan. Behind Staf- 
ford, the Ephs will be led by Roger 
Southall, Tom Shulman, and Cap- 
tain Sam Eells. 

The Williams freshmen will also 
be seeking the 'Little Three' crown 
when they encounter the yearlings 
of Amherst. The Eph squad easily 
beat the Wesleyan frosh 9-0. 

Shawmen, Jeffs Clash 
In Basketball Final 

The Williams basketball team will meet mighty Amherst in 
an important Little Three contest on Saturday in Lasell Gym. Tliis 
will be the last game of the season for the Ephmen. 

Amherst is one of the top teams in New England and has been 
chosen to play in the small college division of the NCAA tourna- 
ment. The Jeffs have a 15-3 record, including a 72-57 victory 
over Williams on Feb. 16. They have already cinched the Little 

Three championship. 

Coach Rick Wilson will probably 
start his regular line-up of Bill 
Warren at center, Capt. Dick An- 
derson and Lee Lindeman at for- 
wards, and Phil Hastings and Kiff 
Knight at the guards. Warren Is 
one of the leading scorers in the 
East with a 22.3 avg. 

Williams coach Al Shaw will 
probably use Jeff Morton at cen- 
ter. Bill Hedeman and Capt. John 
Lewis at forwards, and Bob Par- 
ker and Phil Brown at the guards.

"It could be another Colgate

Saturday's home swimming meet 
with Amherst, in which the Eph-

Since Wesleyan has already been

Jeffs are strong. Keiter, who holds 
the New England 50 yd. freestyle 
record of 22.3 seconds, should find

engage the Cai-dinals from Wes- 

Coach Jim Ostendarp's grap-

contest, while the Cards boast a 
6-2 mark. Both teams defeated 
Amherst; Williams wirming 18-6 
and Wesleyan 19-10. 

Captain Ted McKee and Bob 
Koster, both seniors, will can'y the 
team's most outstanding records 
into the contest. McKee's record is 
5-1; Koster's is 6-0. Koster will 
also defend his perfect record in 
four years of dual meet competi- 

Coach Nathan Osur of Wesleyan 
has singled out Tom Burns and

while Davies must face Koster in 
what will probably be the day's 
most exciting match.

he picked up the puck in the cor- 
ner, skated across the mouth of 
the cage and back handed it into 
the corner. Three minutes later, 
defenseraan Tom Piper rushed 
with the puck and assisted Doug 

After 20 seconds of the second 
period had elapsed, Dick Gallun 
scored from a scramble, and at 
1:13 Howie Patterson scored un- 
assisted. After Poole and Leinbach 
had each scored their second goals, 
Cook hit from 50 feet. Finally 
Lowden scored at 19:19 after tak- 
ing Gallun's pass from the face- 

Lowden collected his third as- 
sist as he drew the goalie aside 
and left the puck for Leinbach to 
slap into the open net. 

Having played together for four 
years now, eight Ephs will play 
their last game as a unit this af- 
ternoon at Amherst. "The only 
way that Amherst can beat us is 
to take their goal off the ice", stat- 
ed George Welles, Williams co- 

Although Williams trounced 
Amherst 6-1 in their last encoun- 
ter, the Sabrinas have been im- 
proving steadily. The Jeffs recently 
upset Hamilton 4-1. Following the 
last Amherst game Coach McCor- 
mick said, "Amherst just did not 
want to play hockey today; no one 
on their team was skating." 
Five Seniors To Start 

The "Red Line" composed of 
Dick Gallun, Bob Lowden, and Bob 
Leinbach, recently the most pro- 
ductive trio, will probably get the 
starting nod. Defensemen George 
Welles and Howie Patterson will 
protect goalie Dick Marr. Of this 
starting line-up, only Lowden will 
be back next season. 

Co-captain John Holman and 
linemen Dick Flood and Doug 
Poole will also end their Williams 
hockey careers today.

AMT Workshop 
Plays Applauded 

By Bill Edgar 

Although admission was free and 
the production was mentioned in 
most Tuesday morning classes, 
only about fifteen undergraduates 
were present at the A. M. T. per- 
formance of "Pour Man Revue" 
and Anton Chekhov's "The Pro- 
posal" on Tuesday. 

The acting was superb, and the 
high standard of AMT productions 
was definitely maintained. 

Tony Distler '59, star of "Pour 
Man Revue" (consisting of him- 
self, sound and lighting techni- 
cians and a curtain-puller) show- 
ed considerable stage presence and 
ease with his lines and gestures. 

His Revue was a pot pourri of 
theatrical tidbits, ranging from a 
song by Louis Armstrong to the 
Porter Scene in Macbeth. Empha- 
sis was on variety and an informal, 
humorous tone and the result was 
quite pleasing. 

"The Proposal" is a delightful 
farce about a shy, nervous neigh- 
bor who asks a landowner for his 
daughter's hand. 

Under the direction of Hal Metz- 
gar, the acting was extraordinarily 
proficient. E. J. Johnson was a 
wonderfully timid, whining suitor; 
Steve Saunders was a very likeable 
landowner; Mrs. William Martin, 
as the daughter, threw wonderful 
tantrums, stamping, waving her 
arms, and biting her apron.

Wesleyan Survey 
Shows Discontent 
Of 35% Students 

In a feature article appearing 
last Tuesday, The Wesleyan Argus 
reported that in two separate polls 
of student opinion about 35 per 
cent of the Wesleyan students 
stated that they probably would 
not choose Wesleyan were they 
given the choice again. 

When questioned about the find- 
ings of the survey. Dr. Victor L. 
Butterfield, Wesleyan's president, 
mentioned an increased awareness 
and concern on the part of the 
administration regarding the prob- 

He attributed the results to a 
complexity of factors; among them 
the process of maturation, and the 
pressures on the students to pro- 
duce a quality of work acceptable 
in an educational institution of the 
calibre of Wesleyan.

"There is no doubt in my mind," 
said Dr. Gummere, "that founda-

At Williams 

At Williams, only three modern 
languages are listed in the curri- 
culum: French, Spanish and Ger- 
man. Russian and Italian are not 
offered. The number of people 
who major in a language Is, com- 
pared to other subjects, very small.

Group Begins Hunt 
For Discrimination 

"The extent to which factors other than individual merit" in- 
fluence house rushing pohcies constitutes the crux of the problem 
currently under investigation by the newly-formed College Coun- 
cil Committee on Discrimination. 

The six-man committee headed by David C. PhiUips '58 re- 
vealed the objectives of the large- 
scale probe at the College Coun- 
cil meeting Monday. 

Pressures of alunmi and na-

Phillips said, with the cooperation 
of the houses themselves In secret 

The committee emphasized that 
its approach and goals will be 
moderate in the hopes of helping — 
not hindering — both the houses 
and the college. The group, ack- 
nowledging the importance of se- 
lectivity, does not intend to abol-

Other Facets 

Other phases of the inquiry will 
concern the history of this prob- 
lem since World War II and cur-

However, the "heart of the inves-

two weeks.

Discrimination: Yes Or No 

The biggest issue on campus today is the 
problem of discrimination within Williams fra- 

A recent dispute at the Delta Phi house 
which received nation-wide pubUcity and which 
reportedly concerned discrimination, brought the 
problem to a head. Although the complex situa- 
tion at Delta Phi has quieted for the present, the 
issue it raised is currentiy being investigated by 
several campus groups. 

As most of you alumni know, this is not by 
any means a new problem at Williams. In fact, 
this school has long suffered from a poor repu- 
tation resulting from this type of activity. Al- 
though great strides have been made recently, 
the problem is still a powerful— if subtle— force 
on this campus. 

Currently, a determined and yet reahstic 
drive is being initiated to abohsh discrimination 
here. President Baxter started the move by ap- 
pointing a three-man Trustee committee to in- 
vestigate the matter. Both Gargoyle and the So- 
cial Council have the situation under study while 
a College Council committee has already begun 
to function ( see page one ) . 

The obstacles mese groups are fighting are 
not constitutional prohibitive clauses, but rather 
tacitly understood "gentlemen's agreements" vwth 
nationals and alumni that are stillso much a part 
of many houses' rushing policies. 

The point here is that these investigatory 
bodies are going about their work in a mature, 
sensible matter. They are not getting carried 
away with all this and planning to change the 
entire fraternity system overnight. And yet they, 
and most of the campus with them, still feel that 
such a situation should never exist on this canv- 
pus. The fact that it does degrades Williams Col- 
lege and the liberal ideals for which it stands. 

While there certainly are those alumni who 
will resent these moves, we trust they vnll rea- 
lize that this is a step of progress: a development 
which, quite frankly, is inevitable— even at Wil- 
liams. If anything should result from these in- 
vestigations, and probably something will, we 
fervently hope that our alumni will step for- 
ward and boldly support these liberal steps. For 
if any action is to materialize, alumni support 
very definitely will be needed. 

Williams is among the nation's leaders in 
practically all fields of American education. Per- 
haps it is about time that our fraternity system, 
too, cleanses itself of an outmoded sense of 

Ad-hoc Faculty Committee 
Studies Five-day Week 

By Jim Rayhill 

The perennial problem of the five day week 
has finally made its appearance on the Williams 
campus. The student body seems to be almost 
unanimous in its support for abolishing Satur- 
day classes and there seems to be wide-spread 
support among the faculty. 

President Baxter has appointed an "Ad-hoc 
Committee for Soheduhng Courses" with Pro- 
fessor Mehlin as its chairman. Prof. Mehlin said 
that "because of the increase in the number of 
courses offered, it is necessary to look over the 
entire problem of course scheduling." On the pro- 
position of the five day week, Prof. Mehlin said 
that "we have talked about the plan but have 
made no decision on this, nor is there any trend 
in this direction. It is a very difficult and com 
plicated problem." 

There are two main motivations in pursuing 
such an investigation. One is the problem of cut- 
ting Saturday classes and the other is the inipor- 
tance of reducing faculty and student conflicts 
in course scheduling. One of the proposals, to 
solve these problems is to have classes end at 
four o'clock on Friday afternoon. 
Five Day Week 

Prof. Mehlin emphasized that "this commit- 
tee was not appointed merely to discuss the five 
day plan, but all proposals for a solution." But, 
the five day plan as proposed would make great- 
er use of seminars. There would be more hour 
and a half classes meeting twice a week. While 
other courses would continue to meet three times 
a week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. 

Anotlier possibihty of alleviating course con- 
flictions would entail the continuance of the six 
day week. There would be two hour and a half 
seminars each day. Some classes would run 
through the noon-hour, causing a staggered 

Prof. Mehlin again emphasized that "it is 
too soon to know how it will come out. We must 
determine which proposal will be most advan- 
tageous to the faculty and to the students. I am 
quite doubtful that any decision will be made 
concerning next year, for the scheduling of 
courses will take place in a few weeks." 
Three Term Plan 

Another alternative would be changing the 
present system of two terms to one comprising 
of three terms. This is a proposal most often 
associated with Professor Gates although he has 
said that "it is not a plan that I want to push, 
but merely a speculation as to what might be 

As the suggestion stands, the first term 
would terminate at Christmas vacation. The 
other two terms would begin after vacations. 
During each term the student would study 
three subjects and have five class meetings a 
week. Thus, the student would take nine sub- 
jects each year, instead of ten which is the pre- 
sent situation. 

Ski-Bunnies Cavort 
At Weekly Inn Frolics 

By Bill Edgar 

The off-weekend during winter months in 
WiUiamstown can be dreary. 

For those who didn't call Smith and Vassar 
until Thursday night, or those who took a 
startled look at a course syllabus to discover un- 
read pages and unstudied fossils, Saturday night 
awakens a restless hunger for social activity— 
seldom satisfied by an Elvis Presley movie at 
the Walden or a few beers at the 1896 House. 

Fortunately, however, the Wilhams Inn pro- 
vides a welcome diversion for those dark, cold 
evenings. This diversion takes the form of that 
proverbial, elusive animal, the ski-bunny. 

This extraordinary collection of young la- 
dies who hold secretarial or clerical jobs in the 
caverns of Wall Street and Madison Avenue 
come to the Berkshires for a weekend of healthy, 
outdoor fim on area ski-slopes. 

Williams men have the opportimity to en- 
joy their company at a Saturday night dance at 
the Inn. To the strains of a red-shirted square- 
dance band, they hope to participate in the in- 
teresting sport of snowing a ski-bunny. 

In reality, however, most of the suave col- 
lege boys spend the evening merely watching 
the frolicking girls with amused— if groggy— in- 

When asked by a Record interviewer what 
he thought of ski-bunnies, a Williams man an- 
swered, "Oh well ..." 

When the same interviewer asked one young 
lass what she thought of Williams men, she said,

Renowned Archeologist To Lecture 
On Research On Dead Sea Scrolls 
In Biology Lab Tomorrow Evening 


By invitation of tlie Williams 
Lecture Committee, William F. Al- 
bright win speak on "The Present 
State of Research on the Dead Sea 
Scrolls" in the Thompson Biology 
Lab at eight o'clock tomorrow ev- 

Mr. Albright, who has been call- 
ed "one of the greatest living Bib- 
lical archeologlsts," Is a professor 
of Semetlc Languages at Johns 
Hopkins University. 

He has followed the research on 
the Dead Sea Scrolls closely since 
they were found in 1947. He has 
written works on archeology and 
language, and has recently return- 
ed from a new expedition to Israel. 
The Scrolls 

The Scrolls, wrapped in linen 

and placed in tall clay Jars, were 
found early in the spring of 1947 
by a Bedouin goatherd in a cave 
on the western shore of the Dead 

After the painfuUy careful ex- 
amination of scholarship, the 
manuscripts revealed a Hebrew 
sect called the Essenes which 
flourished just before the Christ- 
ian era, and whose rites and be- 
liefs were very slmUar to Chris- 

The Dead Sea manuscripts seem 
to show, according to Edmund 
Wilson, "that the characteristic 
doctrines of Christianity must 
have developed naturally out of a 
dissident branch of Judaism."

Ephmen's Second Hall Rally Fails, 
Amherst Downs Williams Quintet 

By Chuck Dunkel 
Trailing by 18 points at halftime, Williams staged a terrific comeback Saturday night to go 
ahead by one; but a strong Amherst team recovered to take a 63-55 decision in Lasell Gym. 

The Williams cause seemed hopeless as the second half started, as Amherst completely out- 
classed the Ephs in the first twenty minutes and held a commanding lead, However, the Shaw- 
men began to find the range on their shots, and with Morton and Hedeman clearing the back- 
boards, the Jeff lead suddenly dis- 
appeared. V^' 

The Ephmen pulled to within 
one point, 44-45, as they outscored 
Amherst 22-5 in the first twelve 
minutes of the half. Amherst scor- 
ed to lead by three, but Parker 
netted a foul shot and Bill Hede- 
man's rebound baslcet at 6:38 tied 
the score at 47-alI. 

Jeff Morton canned a foul shot 
to vault Williams into the lead, but 
Bill Wai'ren dropped two free 
throws and a basket to put the 
Jeffs ahead again, 51-48. Kiff 
Knight then killed the last Eph 
hopes, as the alert guard stole the 

ball and passed to Dick Anderson 

for an easy lay-up. Williams never 
recovered and Amherst coasted 

the remaining five minutes. 
The first half was all Amherst, 

as the Jeffs ran up a 22-6 lead in 

the first ten minutes. Williams was 

continually bothered by their 

pressing defense and the Eph 

shooting was way off. With War- 
ren scoring 15 points, the Jeffs 

breezed to a 40-22 halftime mar- 
gin and appeared on the way to an 

easy victory. 
This win gave Amherst their 

second straight Little Three cham- 
pionship with a perfect 4-0 mark, 

and a 17-3 season record. 
This was the last game for Wil- 

Uams, and dropped the Ephs into 

a second place tie with Wesleyan. 

The Shawmen finished with a 8-13

The Amherst freshmen scored 
on a rebound shot with three sec- 
onds left in the overtime period 
Saturday to down Williams 66-64 
in Lasell Gym. 

The Eph frosh jumped off to 
an early lead and held a 24-10 
margin at one point, before Am- 
herst cut the lead to seven points 
at halftime. The Jeffs continued 
their comeback in the second half 
and tied the score at 46-all with 
10 minutes left. 

The lead changed hands several 
times in the dying minutes, with 
some clutch foul shooting by 
Chuck Colby sparking the Ephs, 
and the score was tied 60-60 at 
the end of regulation time. The 
Ephs twice tied the score in over- 
time, but couldn't pull ahead.

men with 17 points while Colby 
netted 16. George Boynton, play-

Freshman Squash 

The Eph squash squad easily 
downed the Amherst frosh 8-1 to 
end the season with a 3-4 record 
and the Little Three crown. Wil- 
liams first four, Greg Tobin, Pete 
Beckwith, Clyde Buck, and John 
Bowen had little trouble downing 
their opponents in straight games. 

The lower half of the Amherst 
lineup proved harder to subdue 
but only the Lord Jeffs' No. 8 
man, Jerry Welant was able to 

and 100-yard freestyle events. 
John Hales, diving for the first 
time in competition also took a 
first for Williams. The 200 -yard 
freestyle relay team of Dave Zum, 
Dick Eberhard, Bob Jahncke, and 
Jeff Shulman added the Purple's 
remaining first place. 

Freshman Hockey 

The Eph stickmen forced the 
undefeated Amherst frosh skaters 
into overtime before bowing 2-1. 

The Lord Jeffs' star, Bruce 
Hutchinson, opened the scoring at 
1:24 of the second period but Wil- 
liams came back at 5:24 of the 
same period to even the count 
on a goal by Jim Fisher assisted 
by Elliot Morss. Neither team was 
able to find the nets again until 
Hutchinson counted at 8:29 of the 
overtime period to win it. 

The Williams Hockey team end- 
ed its season successfully last Sat- 
urday at Amherst, as It outclassed 
the Jeffs 8-1. By dumping the Sa- 
brinas for the second time this 
year, the squad compiled an im- 
pressive 12-8 record. 

With a man advantage Bob 
Leinbach opened the scoring at 
12:48 as he popped in John Hol- 
man's rebound which was shot 
from the point. Eleven seconds 
later, with Chris Crosby still in the 
penalty box, Holman scored from 
25 feet on a partially screened 
shot. Capitalizing on a three-on- 
two break, Doug Poole flipped a 
pass around the Amherst defense 
to Dick Flood who scored. 

Completely outskated in the in- 
itial period, Amherst could only 
manage a few short rushes as the 
Ephs masterfully kept control of 
the puck. Dick Marr had only to 
stop two shots during this period. 
Excessive passing and lack of 
shooting limited the Ephs to three 
goals for the first frame. 

Williams added three more goals 
in the second period. Defenseman 
Tom Piper fed Poole from the cor- 
ner for the first tally at 5:05. 
Dave Cook then passed to Rick 
DrlscoU who was uncovered in 
front of the cage and beat goalie 
Coleman from five feet. Piper add- 
ed to the rout as he hit the lower 
right hand corner from the point. 

Hecker Makes Debut 

The barrage continued after the 
third period was 25 seconds old. 
Leinbach hit an upper corner with 
a 25 -foot back-handed drive. Dick 
Marr lost his final bid for an in- 
tercollegiate shutout as Bob Mc- 
Lean outscrambled him for a loose 
puck at 5:02. Rich Lombard netted 
the final goal of the season as he 
drove home Cook's rebound from 
five feet. To conclude the season, 
Eph manager Jim Hecker made 
his debut on the ice with three 
minutes remaining in the game.

With Saturday's finale against Amherst, the Williams winter 
sports scene closed except for post-season tournaments in wrestling 
swimming and squash. At this time it is customary for alumni 
students and friends of the Ephmen to bemoan the state of ath- 
letics at Williams College. The familiar cry of "Why can't we beat 
Amiierst?" will be frequently heard after tlie double loss to the 
Lord Jeffs in basketball. 

Anyone who saw the games at Amherst and Williamstown 
will not have to search far to find the answer to tlieir question. 
The Sabrinas were bigger, (^nicker and better than their rivals. The 
only department in which they were outshone was just plain 
"spunk". Coach Al Shaw's boys were all over the court, fighting 
for every loose ball and rebound. With this one virtue alone, the 
Ephmen almost did the impossible here on Saturday. 

Those of us who remember two years ago at Amherst when 
the Lord Jeffs defeated a tournament-bound Wilhams team re- 
gret doubly that the Ephs were unable to turn the tables. An early 
twenty-point lead enabled the visitors to recover from a vahant 
Williams rally. But no one can deny that the five sophomores, who 
along with captain John Lewis starred for WilUams, did a fine job 
on Saturday. It won't be long before these five taste revenge at 
tlie expense of Amherst. 

The rest of tlie winter sports season was quit satisfactory as 
far as the Williams-Amherst rivalry is concerned. The Ephmen 
soundly trounced the Jeffs in swimming, wrestHng, hockey and 
squash. Except for wrestling, the Purple had LitUe Three Cham- 
|)ions in each of these sports. If the men from Amherst don't pro- 
duce better athletes than their freshman teams have shown, in 
about two years time tlie traditional rivalry may be more one- 
sided than it is now. 

Squash Team Retains Little Three Crown; 
Stafford Loses In Eph Win Over Amherst 

The Little Three squash crown 
remained in Williamstown, as the 
Eph squash team, now sporting a 
5-6 seasonal record, downed Am- 
herst Saturday, 7-2. 

The match was not without its 
surprises as junior OUie Stafford, 
ranked third in national intercolle- 
giate competition, met his match 
in Amherst's hustling Bob Dillon. 
Stafford kept his shots too high 
and as a result, the catlike Dillon 
out-retrieved him to a four set 
defeat, 8-15, 15-10, 15-8, 16-15. 

The erratic Dave Hicks of Am- 
herst proved no test for Rogers 
Southall, and was disposed of in 
four games. After losing his first 
game. Captain Sammy Eells came

Dick Ennis, Tom Shulman, Cros-

Severance, Dietz Pace Swiminers 
To 45-41 Victory Over Sabrinas 

Paced by the record-breaking performance of Bob Severance and the dual victory of captain 
Pete Dietz, coach Bob Muir's swimmers defeated Amherst 45-41 for the Little Tliree tide at La- 
sell Pool last Saturday. 

Co-captain-elect Severance smashed Alex Reeves' New England record in the 100 yard but- 
terfly as he turned in a 59.9 clocking. Severance also was the key factor in winning the crucial 

400 yard medley relay. After the Ephs trailed at the half way mark, Severance pulled far ahead in 

his lap to enable the Ephs to 
easily coast to victory. 

Amherst co-captain Bob Keiter 
impressed the capacity crowd as 
he smashed his own New England 
50 yard freestyle record with a 
spectacular 22.2 time; he also won 
tlie 100 yard freestyle and anchor- 
ed the winning Jeff 400 yard free- 
style relay team. 

Dietz Wins 

In his last performance In the 
Lasell Pool Dietz again turned in 
his usual wins. He copped the 220 
yard freestyle with a 2:16.3 clock- 
ing and came home in 5:03.5 to 
win the 440 yard freestyle. 

A great boost toward the Eph 
win came in the diving when Bob 
Jones and Dave Ransom swept the 

Hem-y Tatem easily won the 200 
yard backstroke for Williams 
turning in a 2:26.3 time. Barry 
Buckley, who swam second in the 
winning medley relay team was 
later elected co-captain of the 
swimming team for next year. 

Williams put together six firsts, 
three seconds and four third places 
to account for the winning four 
point margin. 

The summaries:

Cardinals Take Little Three Title 
By Defeating Eph Matmen, 14-10 

Although Eph senior Bob Koster extended his unbeaten streak 
in dual meet competition to four full years, Wesleyan's wrestlers 
managed to nose out die Purple varsity 14-10, at Middletown last 
Friday, to win the Little Three championship. 

In a post-match interview, Williams head coach Jim Ostendarp 
had high praise for every member of his team which finished with 

a 5-2 record. He observed that the 

Williams Track Coach TONY 
PLANSKY was one of eight 
coaches of track and field 
teams in the I. C. 4-A who were 
presented with awards during 
the 1957 indoor games at Madi- 
son Square Garden on March Z. 
Plansky, who has completed 
twenty-five years of service at 
Williams was cited for his "out- 
standing adherence to the prin- 
ciples of good sportsmanship."

Dear Alumnus, 

Since graduation many of you have unintentionally lost contact 
with the daily activities of the Willianns cannpus. We feel that the 
Williams Record affords an opportunity to remain in contact with 
ever changing college life. 

In the hopes of revitalizing this connection with the alumni, the 
new Record boards have instituted several changes. The new paper is 
smaller and has more pages. Other new features include the use of 
more pictures, more complete and accurate news coverage and, of 
prime importance, the use of box scores and summaries in sports 

We welcome questions from alumni on any subject concurrent to 
Williams affairs— on sports or college policies. This participation is 
particularly important as it is really the only way the campus con dis- 
cover alumni sentiment. 

The printing dotes have been advanced to Tuesday and Thursday 
evenings to hasten the mailing process for your convenience. The Cir- 
culation staff has been enlarged and placed in competent hands to 
fill your subscription order more speedily. Consequently, the Record 
will now reach you without delay. 

We offer you the remaining issues for this year as well as a subscrip- 
tion for the coming year for $6.50. However, if payment is made be- 
fore June 1, 1957, the price will be $ 6.00, a 20 per cent reduction of 
the normal $7.50 price for this combination. If you are presently sub- 
scribing, we will be happy to renew your subscription for 1957-58. 

Our paper is, we feel, much improved. Alumnus, we hope you like it. 

Yours Truly, 
Richard B. Lombard, Jr.

Gargoyle Publishes 
Communications Plan 

by John Phillips 

In a written report issued Wednesday Frank Dengel's Gargoyle 
Communications Committee suggested All-College Assemblies 
and an Inter-Dining Broadcasting System as a two-fold solution 
to the over-all problem of communications at Williams. 

President James P. Baxter III expressed approval of the re- 
port and promised to discuss it at the next Faculty meeting. 

According to the text of the re- 
port All-College Assemblies would 
serve two general purposes. First, 
it would allow the free discussion 
of "common problems" to "alle- 
viate many of the misunderstand- 
ings which arise from Indirect 
means of conveying information 
on important affairs." Second, the 
meetings "would help to develop 
a unifying spirit among the stu- 


If put into practice these college 
assemblies would be held at least 
twice a year, with a compulsory 
meeting during the first week of 
each new semester. At each of 
these opening meetings the Col- 
lege Council would issue a report, 
"not only to enlighten the stu- 
dents as to campus problems, but 
to make them aware of the Col- 
lege Council as a body represent- 
ing their interests." 

The assemblies would be con- 
ducted and called by the College 
Council and the administration, 
and failure to attend would entail 
four weeks of no-cuts. 

Campus Intercom 

In order to keep the student 
body informed of day-to-day com- 
munications, an Inter - Dining 
Broadcast System would be install- 
ed on campus with receivers In

a single brief broadcast at 12:25 
p.m. daily, for all announcements 
which affect a large percentage of 
the student body.

Clark Art Exhibit 
Highlights Works 
Of Renoir, Monet 

A collection of 32 Renoirs and 
2 Monets highlight the current 
exhibit at the Sterling and Fran- 
cine Clark Art Institute. 

This exhibit was the subject of 
a recent spread in LIFE maga- 
zine and is one of the largest col- 
lections of its kind in the world. 
Also on display at the moment is 
a Stuart portrait of Washington 
and several paintings by Winslow 

The Lawrence Art Museum is 
displaying a number of etchings 
by the seventeenth century print- 
maker Bosse. The collection, which 
was prepared by Smith College, is 
being shown in the museum and 
Baxter Hall. 

Author Rudyard Kipling, who 
once lived in Vermont, is the sub- 
ject of an exhibition of books re- 
lating to his stay in Brattleboro,

Williams Welcomes NE 
Wrestling Tournament 

by Jack Talmadge 
Williams News Bureau 
The varsity wrestling team will have to puU an upset this weekend to end Springfield's long- 
standing monopoly on the New England Championship Tournament, the 11th version of which 
will be held on the Lasell Gym mats Friday at 1:30 and 7:00 and Saturday at 2:00. 

Springfield, NE team champs since 1951, will be led by undefeated captain Ed Amerantes, 
probably the tournament's outstanding wrestler, currently ranking O 
third in the nation at 115 lbs. On the basis of his ten dual meet 
victories, six of which were by pins, Amerantes is expected to gain 
his third consecutive NE 123 lb. division crown. Hank Bianowicz, 
147 lb. defending champ, and five other probable scorers give 
Springfield the depth necessary for a title defense. 


Koster, McKee 

Williams, led by Capt. Ted Mc- 
Kee, undefeated Bob Koster and 
Heavyweight Bob Hatcher, could 
upset the high-riding Maroons 
with consistent performances and 
the requisite breaks. 

John Evans will have to finish 
next to Amerantes, ahead of un- 
defeated Tom Burns of Wesleyan 
to start the Ephmen on the upset 
trail. UMass' Art Rapoza is fav- 
ored at 130, but Kurht Wieneke 
could reverse his dual meet de- 
feat, giving Jim Ostendarp's 
charges a further boost. 

The base of Williams' hopes lies 
in the 137 lb. class where Capt. 
Ted McKee, recently recovered 
from a neck injury, will have to 
beat Rich Dickey of Springfield, 
3-2, conqueror of McKee In their 
dual meet match. Bianowicz, also 
hampered by injuries, will prob- 
ably retain his 147 lb. title, al- 
though Amherst's Bob Thompson 
could help Williams by upsetting 
Bianowicz, not an impossible feat. 
Williams' Jim Hutchinson has 
only an outside chance of scoring 
in this loaded class. 

Williams is counting heavily on

election meeting last Friday night. 

The New IRC Vice-President is 
Paul Klotz '58, while Bob Pearl 
'59, Bill Comanor '59, and Joe Bor-

ganization has been inactive for 
several years, but the new officers 
hope to inspire greater interest 
through exchange visits with other 
colleges, and movies and lectures 
at Williams.

Pete Paullin '58, was elected 
Commodore of the Williams Yacht 
Club last Monday night, succeed- 
ing Russ Beede '57. Assisting Paul-

Broadway Show 
To Use Williams 

The Williams campus will prob- 
ably provide much of the back- 
ground jolor for a new Broadway 
play, "The Egg Head", which is 
slated to open next fall. 

The authoress, producers, set 
and costume designers and the 
director made an unheralded visit 
to Williamstown last weekend to 
find out Eph dress habits, expres- 
sions of speech and ideas for pos- 
sible set designs. 

"The Egg Head" was written by 
Mrs. Molly Kazan, wife of renown 
Hollywood director Elia ("Baby 
Doll", and "On the Waterfront") 
Kazan, Williams '30. 

In their quest for local color the 
group toured the campus, attended 
several classes and lectures, and 
visited a number of faculty houses. 
They were guided by Mrs. Thomas 
V. Urmy, a friend of Mrs. Kazan. 

The visitors included Hume 
Cronyn, director, Hope Abelson, 
producer, Ann H. Johnston, cos- 
tume designer and Prank Sylbert, 
scene designer. 

Thinking Of Getting Pinned? 

Harper's Deplores ^Going Steady'; 
Cites Effects On Society, Economy 

by Bill Edgar 

In the March issue of HARPER'S Charles W. Cole describes a social phenomenon which is pre- 
sent if not prevalent on the Williams campus: the phenomenon of "going steady." 

Although he admits that the phrase is more widely used in nigh schools than in college 
circles, he observes that "the institution is as strong" in the latter as in the former. He claims, in 
fact, that it is "fully established as 

the standard and persuasive pat- 
tern for the social life of the

can Youth Goes Monogamous" 
Mr. Cole describes the causes for 
this phenomenon and the "pro- 
found effects" which it has on A- 
merican society "and even on our 

Effect on Society 

Throughout the article, he ap- 
proaches the subject with objec- 
tivity and with considerable fa- 
miliarity with the social mores in 
American colleges. He concludes, 
in general, that "going steady" is 
an unfortunate institution. 

He touches only lightly on the 
causes. He suggests that "going 
steady" is "related to the search 
for security." Mr. Cole outlines 
quite thoroughly, however, the ef- 
fects which it has on American so- 
ciety as a whole. 

The average age of marriage, he 
says, "has dropped very rapidly" 
because of the changing social cus- 
toms. Thirty years ago, when

For The Log 

One of the ]3erplexiiig problems inherent in 
attaining a hheral education i.s what to do with 

.\ unique, il unprecendented, solution lies in 
the case ol Alec France '56, who has been se- 
cretly ferryiuf^ lluni;ariaii Refugees across the 
.Austrian border (see details, page four). 

Most VVilliauis graduates choose to utihze 
their hberal backgrounds in less exciting— let 
alone less dangerous— situations such as behind a 
desk at 115M or Yale Law School. France, on the 
other hami, must be commended not only for 
doing the relugecs a favor, but for again proving 
that a liberal education is not always swept a- 
way by liarsh practicality. 

Unlike other VVilliaius men, I'rancc, after 
reading Hegel, Goetlie and the others, chose to 
convert his ideals into action, to make his Wil- 
liams background meaningfid. 

The irony of his ease is that, because of his 
e.xtra-curricular nocturnal activity, France may 
lose his Fulbright Scholarship to the Sorbonne. 
What a shame if now France, too, one of the last 
of the real students on the other end of that log, 
must join the ranks uniformed in gray flannel 
marching down Madison Avenue. 

CC Committee Statement 

F'oUowing is the statement of objectives is- 
sued by the recently-appointed College Coinicil 
Committee on Discrimination. 

"In 1946, and again in 1951, the social system 
of this College was subjected to an extensive re- 
view. In both instances the fraternity system was 
confirmed in its essential role as the center of 
social life. In each report (die Shriver Report 
and the Sterling Report) the jMoblem that this 
committee will study was recognized as inherent, 
but it was never subjected to any detailed in- 

■'Discrimination-selection— is inherent in the 
fraternity system. The intent of this committee 
is not to "abolish" selection but to establish the 
extent to which factors other than individual me- 
rit are present in the selective process. 

"Total opportunity, that is, every under- 
graduate in a house, is not a part of this investi- 
gation except where an individual is denied 
equal opportuniU/ for membership in each fra- 
ternity. This is the heart of our investigation. 
We will explore— as the first step toward allevia- 
tion—the area in which considerations other than 
character and personality are present in the selec- 
tion process. This in no way implies that all 
must— or should— be adniitted. 

"The investigation will be conducted on 
three levels: A history (jf the problem since the 
end of World War II on this campus, a thorough 
investigation of each house to establish problems 
of this nature with national and alumni groups, 
and current student opinion on this problem. Our 
investigation will touch the most sensitive part 
of the fraternity system, and yet it cannot be 
conducted without the sincere cooperation of 
all houses. We believe that it should be a wel- 
comed opportunity for them to help remove a 
stigma on the system." 

Bt/ Joe Bonis 

The recently-instituted honors program, 
which makes it possible for a student to re- 
ceive a degree with honors by either writing a 
thesis or tiiking special seminar courses, has al- 
ready justified its existence and deserves further 
perpetuation as a central feature of the Wil- 
liams curriculum. There should, however, be one 
major change — selective enrollment of non- 
honors students in seminar courses. 

The most significant conse(|iienee of crea- 
ting the alternative of seminar cla.ssi's to the tra- 
ditional writing of a thesis as the method of ob- 
taining an honors degree has been the tremen- 
dous increase of interest and particiiJation in the 
honors program on the iiart of the student body. 
It is fairly safe to predict that the enrollment of 
Sophomores in the honors program will surpass 
the record enrollment of the present junior class. 

It is not difficult to account for this increased 
enthusiasm for the honors program. For many 
(|ualified students who i^reviously rebelled at the 
prospect of doing extensive research in a very 
narrow and specialized area of tlieir major study, 
the ])rospect of entering small discussion groups 
which cover a more general range of study has 
been an attractive and, in most instances, a high- 
ly-rewarding proposition. 

Admit Non-Honors Students 

Despite tlie success of the seminar courses 
in stimulating participation in die honors pro- 
gram, a basic defect remains. Those seminars 
that have an exceedingly small number of stu- 
dents should be made available to a limited num- 
ber of qualified non-honor students as well. 

Limiting the selection to only those students 
who have demonstrated ability and interest in 
tlie particular subject is, of course, essential. 
In addition, a ma.vimum ceiling on the enrollment 
should he established to retain the necessary 
setninar character of classes. 

Would Not Retard Progress 

If non-honor students are carefully screened, 
it is unlikely that they would impede the progress 
of the honors class as a whole. Rather, it is more 
likely that they woidd benefit appreciably from 
contact with honors students and would aspire 
to reach a high level of attainment. 

The establishment of seminar courses was 
a major stride in successfully adapting the Wil- 
liams curricidum to the changing abilities and at- 
titudes of its students. Progress in this regard 
must continue and admittance of non-honors stu- 
dents to seminars, subject to die limitations des- 
cribed above, would be a beneficial develo]3ment.

Junior OUie Stafford represents 
the Eph hope in individual title 
play while Harvard is favored to 
win the team trophy. Last year, 
with Stafford advancing to the

fourth in the team trophy compe- 

Williams will send Rogers 
Southall, captain Sam Eells, Tom 
Shulman and Stafford to compete 
against the fifteen other colleges 
scheduled to be in the matches. 
The Kphs enter with a 4-6 record

Trinity, host M. I. T. and Wesley- 
an. The fourth win came last week 
with a 7-2 victory over Amherst. 
The Purple have lost to Dart- 
mouth, Princeton, Navy, Harvard,

weak and inconsistent all season

outstanding entrant, making pos- 
sible for Dave Moore to score. 

The second Eph who must win 
his class is Bob Hatcher, undefeat- 
ed Heavyweight, who will have to 
get by George Benedict of Spring- 
field to grab the crown he won in 
the frosh division last year. 

Team-wise, upset-minded Wil- 
liams will challenge fairly secure 
Springfield, while Wesleyan and 
Tufts will battle for third place. 
Breaks in the initial seedings and 
the results of the lower weights 
will have a definite effect on the 
ultimate result.

Hungarians In Austria 

Alec France 06, studyiiii^ Political Science in Paris on a Ful- 
bright scholarship, joined tne International Rescue Committee 
last December to sniuj^j^le refugees across the snow-covered Aus- 
tro-Hungarian border, reports the Cleveland Press. 

Working at night, in knee-leng-Q

companion used a rubber boat to 
ferry Hungarians across a border- 
canal to freedom near Andau, Au-

to discover whether France has 
continued rescue operations. In 
January he said, "I'll be here as

Mead Fund To Send 
Group To Washington 

Approximately twelve Williams 
seniors will spend part of spring 
vacation in Washington interview- 
ing administration and congres- 
sional leaders. The group will be 
led by Robert L. Gaudino, Politi- 
cal Science instructor. 

Their trip will be sponsored by 
the Mead Fund, given to Williams 
to "stimulate all students In the 
fields of government, history and 
economics ..." by George J. Mead 
at his death in 1951. The fund al- 
so sponsors loans and a summer 
intern program in Washington for 


rise in the birth rate. Today, stat- 
es Mr. Cole, "the ideal seems to be 
four or five children." 

Another effect, he suggests, is 
a threat to the stability of mar- 
riage itself. A boy "who has dated 
only one girl, or at the most half- 
a-dozen, would be less likely to 
find a permanently compatible 
mate than the one who has gone 
out with fifty or a hundred." 

Effect on Colleges 

Mr. Cole also discusses the im- 
mediate effects which "going 
steady" has on the social life of 
the colleges themselves. One has 
been the discontinuance of formal 
college proms. 

Also the disappearance of the 
stag line has made all dances "a 
little heavy and somber, because 
the excitement of shifting around 
and of cutting in has disappeared, 
and because neither the boys nor 
the girls feel under any special ob- 
ligation to be gay or entertaining."

stated that Stafford should re-

he lost to Bob Dillon of Amherst

Stafford's strongest opponent a- 
side from Hecksher will probably 
not be Amherst's Dillon but Dart- 
mouth's Dick Hoehn. 

Harvard's competition in the 
team trophy will most probably 
come from Yale, Princeton and 
Navy. Coach Chaffee feels thai 
Williams chances are hindered by 
"a lack of balance and good 
depth." The M.I.T. courts are also 
a good deal faster than those in

Renowned Violinist Joseph Fuchs 
To Give Concert In Chapin Friday 

The Thompson Conceit Committee lias eiiKiiffed the talents 
oi renowned violinist, Joseph Fuchs and accompanist Aithur Balsam 
for a concert to be given at 8:15 P. M. in ChajMn Hall, Friday. 

The duo completed a trium- 
phant tour of England last June, 
rendering performances of the 
Beethoven cycle of Sonatas for 
Violin and Piano. They have re- 
ceived the unprecedented honor of 
being engaged to repeat the cycle 
In London this spring. 

The Chapin concert will include

DeBussy, and other worlcs by Mo- 
zart, Bach, Bloch, Paganini, De- 
Palla, and Smetana. 

"Remarkable Execution" 

Fuchs is the principal violin re- 
cording artist for Decca records. 
He graduated from the Institute of 
Musical Art where he studied un- 
der the distinguished teacher, 
Franz Kniesel. He has appeared a.s 
soloist with the foremost sym- 
phony orchestras and has given 
recitals in almost every music ca- 
pital throughout the United States 
and Europe. 

After one of Fuchs' most recent 
concerts in Rome, Virgil Thomp- 
son, music critic of the New York 
Herald Tribune described his per- 
formance as "The most remarkable 
execution yet heard for tone, tech- 
nique, and musical authority . . .

Vincent Improves 
After Fall Injury 

Francis Vincent '60, who suf- 
fered a broken back in a fall from 
the roof of Williams Hall last De- 
cember, is reported in excellent 
condition in Waterbury Hospital 
in Waterbury, Conn. 

Vincent, captain of last fall's 
undefeated freshman football 
team, has made what one doctor 
termed, "the most remarkable re- 
covery from an injury of this kind 
that I've seen in twenty years." 

At the time of his fall, there was 
serious question as to whether he 
would walk again, but his recovery 
has been so complete that he is 
looking forward to returning to 
Williams this fall and to playing 
football again. 

One of his recent visitors re- 
marked, "Pay's mental attitude 
and cheerful spirit have unques- 
tionably made such a complete 
recovery possible."

Five Seniors Awarded 
Graduate Fellowships 

by Bill Edgar 
Five Williams seniors have won fellowships for graduate study, 
announced Student Aid Director Henry N. Flynt, Jr., last Wednes- 
day. The awards are presented an- 
nually on the basis of superior 
academic performance. 

Recipients are: William Brazill, 
Sherman Denison, Peter Elbow, 
Richard Repp, and Peter Rose. 

Repp won the Wilson Fellowship, 
a two-year grant for study at Ox- 
ford. He was president of his class 
for his sophomore and junior 
years, a junior adviser, a member 
of Gargoyle, and president of Be- 
ta Theta Pi. 

Repp has also played varsity 
soccer, and has been active on the 
Gul and WMS and in the WCC 
and woe. 

Other Awards 
The Clark Fellowship was a- 
DICK REPP, who won the Wil- warded to Brazill and Denison. It

collegiate tournament caliber." 

Mr. Peterson, who has in- 
structed millions of college men 
and women in the game of bil- 
liards, will include free personal 
instruction in his shows. 

B&M May Stop 
Service To Troy 

The Boston and Maine Railroad 
announced plans Wednesday to 
eventually discontinue all passen- 
ger service between Ti-oy and Wil- 
liamstown. Operations on this sec- 
tion have not been showing a 
profit for some time. 

A survey to be completed in 
mid-April is being made on all 
sections of the railroad between 
Boston and Ti-oy to determine 
where the losses are occurring. 

George H. Hill, assistant to B & 
M President Patrick M. McGinnis, 
said that on completion of the sur- 
vey the railroad would "probably" 
petition to the Interstate Com- 
merce Commission for authority 
to drop passenger sei-vice between 
Troy and North Adams or Wil- 
liams town. 

The proposed move would not 
only cut off passenger service but 
would probably affect mail and ex- 
press service as well. 

Freshmen Octets Popularity Grows

a repertoire of 30 numbers. The 
Octet sings music ranging from 
barbershop harmony, novelty num- 
bers and old-standard secular 
pieces to special arrangements of 
Broadway show music. 
Tryouts Held 

Paresky organized tryouts for 
parts in October and the best nine 
voices were selected. The group is 
comprised of: first tenors Dune 
Brown and Phil Scaturro; second 
tenors Sandy Smith, Hal McCann

Williams Beats Sage 
In Debate Competition 

Williams Hall emerged victori- 
ous in the final round of the 
Freshman debate tournament. The 
affirmative defeated Sage Hall's 
negative team on the topic. Re- 
solved: "That the public school 
prepares its students better than 
the private school". 

The affirmative team of Billy 
Ahn, Mike Beemer, Larry Carton, 
and John Searles pointed out that 
public schools give the individual 
an opportunity to associate not 
only with the opposite sex but also 
students of different economic and 
cultural backgrounds. 

The negative's Mike Altman, Bob 
Garland, Joe Hayman and Wally 
Matt held that private schools 
were academically far superior to 
public schools.

Rev. Cole's Lectures 

A valuable unofficial complement to the 
Williams curriculum is Chajjlaiu llev. WilUam 
Cole's enlightening series of lectures on "Sex, 
Love and Marriage" (See story, adjoining col- 
umn ) . 

Dealing with age-old material in a new and 
interesting fashion. Rev. Cole covers a wide 
range of pertinent topics from the fundamen- 
tals of sexual behavior to the more complex 
problems of marriage and child-raising. The re- 
sults of Rev. Coles preliminary tests in the 
course indicate what many have thought for 
years: that American college students, witli 
Williams men no exception, are sadly lacking re- 
liable knowledge in this area. 

Rev. Cole, with full rcahzation of tlie seri- 
ousness of this problem, offers this course strict- 
ly on his own as a service to all his juniors and 
seniors. Most of them are not only intensely in- 
terested in the subject but learn more than they 
are willing to admit. Rev. Cole is to be congra- 
tvdated for developing his frank and informal 
iliscussions into a full-fledged— and one of the 
more i)raetical— Williams traditions. 

for All-College Meetings 

The ])roblem of college communications has 
long been severe here. The recent Gargoyle pro- 
jjosals may be tiie first step towards solution. 

In particular, Gargoyle's initial recoiBmen- 
dation, all-college meetings, holds considerable 
merit. Judging by the experience of other New 
England schools, the Williams community seems 
to be lacking an interesting and ]3erhaps even 
valuable ]Dart of college life in this regard. Al- 
tliough the main pur|30se is to discuss campus 
problems, the meetings would better serve to 
develoiJ the sense of all-college unity which is 
so sadly lacking on this campus. 

Gargoyle's second proposal, an Inter-Din- 
ing Broadcasting system which would send daily 
announcements into each dining hall at lunch- 
time, offers stiffer obstacles. Unless handled 
witli extreme intelligence and skill, these daily 
broadcasts may prove not worth the expense and 
effort involvecl. 

The reinstitution of all-college meetings, and 
possibly the addition of a broadcasting system, 
certainly would be more tlian worthwhile.

Sex, Love, Marriage 

By Jim Rat/hill 

As soft dusk settles down around the science 
auad each Monday night, a stranger might be 
snocked at the number of students entering the 
Biology lab. He notices groups of undergraduates 
walking towards the building, laughing and 

The stranger would probably wonder why 
the yoiuig men who enter the building in such a 
jovial mood leave in deep and serious discussion 
about 'the birds and the bees." If her pursues the 
question, he will discover that this horde of stu- 
euts has just come from Chaplain Uev. Wilham 
Cole's unique lecture series on life's most in- 
triguing subjects— Sex, Love and Marriage. 

Ignorance of Sex 

The course is concerned widi bodi the 
physiological and psychological aspects of sex. 
riie Chaplain, when asked how well informed 
the average Williams undergraduate is in respect 
to sex, answered, "not very". 

Cole went on to explain that "people tend to 
think diat today's undergraduate is suave, so 
phisticated and a man of the world. In reality 
ae is quite ignorant of die basic facts of life. 
Sure, students have a good idea of what sex is, 
but mixed vvidi diese general ideas are many 
misconceptions. It is diis area of misconception 
tiiat the course is trying to correct." 

Ill the first lecture each year-, die Chaplain 
gi\c's a test to each student covering die basic 
pliysiological facts of sex. I'rom the answers on 
diese tests, ifev. Cole has found that, in general, 
young men are quite ignorant of biological 
tacts. Out of a possible ]3erfect score of 80, the 
average mark is 56; the liighest has been 70. 

Cuitonis of Dating 

For the first four- weeks die course con- 
ceutiatcs on the johysiological and biological 
facts of male and female reproductive organs, 
in this field the Chaplain described the student's 
knowledge as "veiled in deep mystery." The 
course tlien deals with the mores of dating and 
what is done on dates. 

The subject of premarital sexual relations, 
such as necking, ]oettiiig and so forth, invariably 
comes up. On this subject, the Clia|)laiii stated 
that, "it is not possible to answer these s]jecifie 
questions as does Norman Vincent Peale. Each 
one has to answer die question for himself. I 
merely try to put facts before the students to 
show them the consequences of such acts mo- 
rally, socially and jjliysically. It depends on what 
it means to the two individuals involved. 

The important fact is whether it i.s an T- 
Thou relationship' where such acts are an ex- 
pression of love and feeHiig, or an T-It relation- 
shi])' where one is just a body, exploited for 
selfish reasons. It depends on who is doing it, 
why and what it means." 

The course then deals with the all-impor- 
tant lirobleni of "How does one know if ho is in 
love'?" The meaning of love is discussed along 
with die ]3roblems of engagements. Finally the 
lecture series reaches its climax— marriage. Rev- 
erend Cole explained that one of the biggest 
problems occurs in mixed marriages, that is, 
between Catholic and Protestant or between Jew 
and non-Jew. 

"Every marriage in reality is a mixed one 
and wide divergencies create greater problems. 
By and large, to successfully adjust oneself to 
the small differences, such as education, social 
background, age, personality traits and interests, 
one must have a great deal of love and patience. 
Thus all three religions frown upon mixed mar- 
riages, for these create a large obstacle to the 
happiness of the two partners which is often un- 

Adjustment to Marriage 
On the problem of adjustment to married 
life. Rev. Cole commented, "One of the main 
worries of the male college student is whether 
he will be sexually adjusted. Sex is not something 
that is separate from total ]Dersonality. Sex is 
the most intimate form of personality. Distur- 
bance in sexual relations is a symptom, not a 
cause, of the personality relationship. 

"Nine out of ten sexual disturbances can be 
ironed out. The sexual and personal relationshi]^ 
must grow together. As you grow older the sex- 
ual relationshiii becomes more pleasant, for your 
success and your failures, your iips and your 
downs, are all expressed in this most intimate re-

Science Requirement: 

Are Present Courses Adequate ? 

By Sandy Mitrrm/ 

A shortcoming in the educational worth of the present science 
requirements was supposedly found by Stephen Rose and set 
forth in his column, "Personal Comment', in the Record of Wed- 
nesday, P'eb. 27. 

In endeavoring to determine means by which Williams might 
more satisfactorily meet the demand for scientists and mathe- 
maticians, the liECOKD proposed that "cluttering deadwood" in- 
terested merely in fulfilling die science rei|nirement should be 
ollercd a one-year course in "History and Method of Science." 
This would replace die ]Dreseiit two-year rec|uirenicnt which must 
be fulfilled by taking the biology, chemistry, astronomy, geology, 
physics or madiematics courses. 

The lijiCOKD has since conducted a jjoll of the chairmen of 
the science and mathematics departments on die following 

1. Do you feel that an introductory course in History and 
Method of Science would be of more value to students uninterest- 
ed in science than the number of 1-2 courses which students must 
now choose from? 

Professor Franzo H. Crawford, Physics— "It would he very 
valuable for some people." Professor James R. Curry, Chemistry— 
"No, Mr. Compton and myself have already attempted to give a 
broad course suited to men taking it for a re(|uireinent. We have 
made Chemistry 1-2 a terminal course as are the odier 1-2 cour- 
ses." Professor Samuel H. Matthews, Biology— "Would be a very 
valuable addition as one of the ojjtions but it should not replace 
the present requirements." Professor Theodore G. Melilin, As- 
tronomy— "Hard to answer yes or no as there are good courses and 
bad courses in History and Method of Science. Many of these 
have practically no value scientifically." Professor Elwyn L. Per- 
ry, Geology— "Probably no. It might be all right as one of two 
courses but not as a substitute." Professor Donald E. Richmond, 
Mathematics —"I taught such a course for quite a while but got 
too busy in my field. It might be valuable to introduce for a cer- 
tain type of student if it could be taught properly." 

2. Do you feci that the progress of scicntifically-niinded 
students is hampered by the presence of uninterested (require- 
ment-fulfilling) students in 1-2 science courses? 

Mr. Crawford— "We are ham]}ered to an extent by a general 
ail- of disinterest." Mr. Curiy— "We gear the chemistry 1-2 course 
to the 90 per cent vvlio do not go on. We have la and 2a courses 
for those going on in sciences jiossibly to medicine or engineering." 
Mr. .Matthews— "Not in the beginning course as it is such a low 
level." Mr. Melilin— "No, not here for in most sciences have la and 
2a courses." Mr. Perry— "De])cnds on the subject. In physics it 
might make a difference but not in biology or geology. 'You get 
down to business faster in physics." Mr. Richmond— "I haven't 
noticed anything of the sort. We have honor sections in madi for 
those exceptional students." 

3. Would the teachers in your department have more time 
and enthusiasm to give to interested science students if uninterest- 
ed students toere able to take a course in History and Method of 

Mr. Crawford— "Don't know the answer. A student's inter- 
est may pick up in the course." Mr. Curry— "Yes, but this is too 
ex]3ensive, not feasible." Mr. Matthews— "Pretty hard to judge un- 
til I saw how registration would change." Mr. Melilin— "Well, 
I'm the only one in the department." Mr. Perry— "It wouldn't 
make much difference in our department which is on a jjretty 
broad basis anyway. You need to go far to get down to technical 
level." Mr. Richmond— "No." 

4. Do you feel that a 1-2 science course is of any value to 
a student who does not continue in the field? 

Mr. Crawford-'Very definitely. It is regrettable when you 
are going to spend die rest of your life in a scientifically-minded 
age to know nothing of science." Mr. Curry— "Definitely. Why 
pick on science? You can ask die same in the other fields." Mr. 
Matthews— "Very definitely. Present-day science is so important 
a part of everyday living. This is part of your Uberal arts educa- 
tion." Mr. Mehhn— "Definitely. You do not need to limit this ques- 
tion to science. There are requirements in each division to broad- 
en, to prepare diem in any field." Mr. Perry— "It has a vast value. 
You can't be educated in this day and age unless you get all tlie 
science you can pick up, unless you understand what science is 
about." Mr. Richmond— "I certainly do. We live in a world in- 
fluenced by science." 

5. Do you favor the elimination of the present science re- 
quirements in favor of the following plan: instead of two science 
courses required, there should be only one. In addition to the 
present 1-2 courses there should be a course in the History and 
Method of Science in order to attract students who are uninterest- 
ed in pure biology, chemistry, physics astronomy, physics and 

Mr. Crawford-! prefer to see History and Method of Sci- 
ence available to those with an extreme lack of aptitude for pur- 
er science. We should keep the two-year requirement which is a 
very small fraction of the total number of courses. Each opens up 
a new realm of thought, a new point of view." Mr. Curry— "No. 
Students interested in this seem to want veneer." Mr. Matthews— 
"No. I am quite willing to see this course if it can be staffed proper- 
ly but I don't like to see it or any course reijuired. Tliis small frac- 
tion should remain devoted to sciences." Mr. Mehlin— "Possibly, 
if all requirements are limited to one course in eacli of the three 
divisions. I oppose this but oppose even more the limiting of just 
the science requirement. You might even go to three required 
courses in science with a 3-4 course following a 1-2." Mr. Perry— 
"No, the closer you can get to the real meat of the sciences the 
better off you are. Science is no different from anything else here. 
You might just as well talk of changing the other two divisions. 
There is no such thing as a science requirement at Williams. It 
is rather an area requirement." Mr. Richmond-"I don't agree at all. 
You need some science background in this day and age. History 
and Method of Science might be returned as an option but the 
realities are such diat it is very hard to find a competent instruc- 
tor with the wide range required." 


Travel Bureau Increases Service;

State To Provide 
Loans For Study 

A Higher Education Loan Plan 
has been announced by the Mas- 
sachusetts State Legislature. This 
is the first statewide plan of its 
kind in the United States, where- 
by commercial credit resources are 
made available for student loans. 

The plan is operated by the Mas- 
sachusetts Higher Education Cor- 
poration, organized last year under 
a special charter from the legisla- 
ture. Dean Robert R. R. Brooks is 
a director of the Corporation and 
also a member of the executive 

The program is restricted to 
Mas.sachusetts residents, but the 
loan recipients may go to approved 
colleges outside the state. Only 
Williams students who live in 
Massachusetts are therefore eli- 

Contributed Money 

The Corporation maintains a 
fund of money contributed by 
business corporations, foundations 
and individuals. Loans are made 
through selected banks at lower 
interest rates and longer repay- 
ment periods than are available 
for ordinary personal loans. 

Tlie loans are limited to $500 in 
any one academic year, and a to- 
tal of $1,500 in three years. 


John O'Neil To Talk 
On American Theater 

"On and Off Broadway" to-

Switchboard In Hopkins 

Installation of the new central 
switchboard in Hopkins Hall will 
be completed by March 28, ac- 
cording to Buildings and Grounds 
Superintendent Peter Welanetz. 
All the wiring of the switchboard 
has been completed. 


"Off and On Broadway" will be 
the title of Professor John D. O'- 
Neil's colloquium tomorrow night 
in the Student Union. 

Mr. O'Neil said that his dis- 
cussion might well be entitled "As- 
pects of the Playgoers' Dilemma 
in the Current American Theater". 
He will try to analyze the current 
Broadway season, illustrating with 
recent productions where appro- 

"There are two aspects of the 
theatre: a vehicle for an outstand- 
ing actor or a means of producing 
great and serious drama," Mr. O'- 
Neil said. Currently, both aspects 
are offered on Broadway. 

Shaw, O'Neil 

In Mr. O'Neil's estimation there 
are two plays now on Broadway 
that combine both parts of the 
theater. They are Eugene O'Neil's 
"Long Day's Journey into the 
Night" and George Bernard Shaw's 
"Major Barbara". They are "great 
theater and have all-star casts." 

Off Broadway productions are 
the source of most revivals. In the 
last few years, these theaters have 
appealed to a wider audience and 
have attracted top-notch perfor- 

In conclusion, Mr. O'Neil said 
that "although this year's season 
got off to a very slow start, there 
is still a great deal of life left in 
the American Theater."

Springfield Matmen Win Seventh 
Straight N. E. Title; Williams 2nd 

With five Maroon wrestlers 
winning individual titles, Spring- 
field College won its seventh 
straight New England intereoUe- 
giate championship last week at 
Williams' Lasell Gymnasium. 

Williams finished second amont; 
the ten teams, but only soph Kuhrt 
Wienelce, at 130 pounds, was able 
to win a division championship. 
Ted McKee, Bob Koster and Bob 
Hatcher all lost close decisions in 
the final round to wind up with 

In a decision that came as a 
sui'prise to many of the spectators, 
Harris Hyman of MIT was a- 
warded the Coaches' Trophy as 
the tourney's outstanding wrest- 
ler. Hyman edged Springfield's 
defending champ Hank Bianowicz 
in the 147 pound final. 

Tufts Finishes Third 

Behind Springfield and Williams 
in the team standings came Tufts, 
the Coast Guard Academy, MTT 
and Wesleyan. Dartmouth, Am- 
herst, Boston University and XJ- 
Mass rounded out the order of 

In the 123 pound division, 
Springfield's two year title holder 
Ed Amerantes, easily won again. 
Wesleyan's Tom Burns was sec- 
ond, followed by Johnny Evans of 

One of the big surprises in the 
meet came in the 130 pound class, 
where Wieneke upset first-seeded 
Art Rapoza of UMass. Wieneke 
dropped behind early in the match, 
but recovered strongly and won 
6-3, barely missing a pin in the 
final seconds.

KUHRT WIENEKE in Homeric Struggle with ART RAFOZA of 

matches by time disadvantages. 
At 137 pounds, Ted McKee led 
Dick Dickey of Springfield 3-2 go- 
ing into the last period. However, 
Dickey escaped to tie the match, 
managed to keep away from the 
hard-charging Williams captain 
for the remaining minute, and 
earned the time advantage deci- 
sion by a bare three seconds. 

Bob Hatcher, soph heavyweight 
for the Purple, lost his unlimited 
match in an almost identical situ- 
ation. Again it was a Springfield 
man who turned the trick; this 
time George Benedict in a 2-1 

The tourney's big upset came in 
the 157 pound class. First-seeded 
Ephman Bob Koster, who has ne- 
ver lost a dual meet match In a 
Williams uniform, appeared to 
coast for the first two periods a- 
gainst Burt Burger. When he fi- 
nally came to life, the match was 
beyond his reach, and the Mar- 
oon's Burger won a 3-0 decision. 

Frosh Also Second 

The Williams freshmen, unde- 
feated in regular season competi- 
tion, took an early lead over their 
Springfield counterparts, only to 
fall behind in the final round and 
finish second. 

Sports Slants 

By Dave Sims 

Fred Coombs '60 submitted a question asking why "fresh- 
man managers fail to receive P. T. credit while their varsity count- 
erparts dor. 

There is no logical reason, as far as I can see, for tlie apparent 
slightinj' of freshman managers. Certainly frosh managers are 
required to spend more time on athletics than their fellow class- 
mates who attend P. T. classes three times a week. This rule 
should oijviously be changed, and work is already under way to- 
wards this end. The Freshman Council is on record as favoring the 
grant of P. T. credit to freshman managers, and has asked the 
Purjile Key for their support in this fight. Tlie Purple Key is cur- 
rently studying a revision of tlie entire managerial system and 
has said that tliey would give consideration to the idea of grant- 
ing freshman managers P. T. credit. 

I sincerely hope the Key gives more than consideration to this 
question, for the rule is an obvious oversight on the part of the 
Athletic Department. 

Hats off to Captain Ted McKee of the wrestling team for his 
fine show of sportsmanship after losing in tiie finals of tlie NEIWA 
Tournament on Saturday. McKee aggressive throughout the match, 
could not get through the defensive-minded Dick Dickey of 
Springfield. As the match ended, a few jeers and boos came from 
the Williams crowd, who were not at all pleased with the 4-3 
decision given to Dickey on the basis of 1:03 seconds riding time. 
As Dickey was presented the award, McKee himself started the 
clapping and prevented what could easily have been a real show 
of unsportsmanship. Anyone watching Dickey's face after tlie vic- 
tory would have perceived that the boos were unnecessary for he 
looked a bit squeamish. 

Six of the Purple frosh placed 
in the individual contests. Steve 
Lewis won the 147 pound title, 
scoring two pins In the prelimi- 
nary bouts and a 7-0 decision in 
Saturday's final. Stu Smith and 
Hal McCarm placed second at 123 
and 130 pounds respectively.

Williams Swimmers Victorious At New Englands, 
Edge Amherst, Brown. UComi In Exciting Meet; 
Captain Dietz Leads Squad With Double Victory 

The varsity swimming team 
compiled a total of (32 points at 
the University of Connecticut's 
Brundage Pool, Saturday, to edge 
out its nearest contender, Am- 
herst, for Williams' twelfth New 
England swimming crown in 16 

Led by the expected double vic- 
tory by Captain Peter Dietz, in the 
220 and 440 yard freestyle races, 
the Ephs outdistanced the fourteen 
colleges entered as tliey placed 
eight men in the ten events, two 
in three of them. 

Co-captain-elect, Bob Severance, 
previous record holder in the 100 
yard butterfly, was upset by Brown 
junior, Al Chapman's 59.1 and 
took second in the event, while 
Alex Reeves took an easy third. 

Sophomore Chip Ide placed sec- 
ond behind Amherst's Bob Keiter 
in the 100 yard freestyle, but took 
fourth in the fifty, Keiter again 
being the winner. 

An unexpected third place in 
the 200 yard backstroke by sur- 
prise qualifier, Henry Tatem, gave 
Williams a substantial boost in the 
scoring. Don Lum, after being e- 
liminated in the 220 freestyle tri- 
als, snapped back into form to 
place fourth in the 440 yard free- 
style trials and took an easy third 
in the finals for some unexpected 

Williams placed second in the 
medley and 400 yard freestyle re- 
lays. Though Amherst had to come 
from behind to take the freestyle 
relay, the Eph mermen had gain- 
ed such a substantial margin that 
it was more than sufficient to 
warrant another victory swim for 
manager Simeral Bunch.

Reporter Finds Brubeck's QuartetjPanel Discusses 

n^-irr> J/-11 AJ- Political Parties 

Partial lowards College Audiences 

By J. E. Brash 

The Dave Brubeck quartet, pre- 
sented In a concert at Smith Col- 
lege Saturday, completely capti- 
vated its audience of 2200 colle- 
giate jazz fans. 

Appearing to play directly to his 
jazzically unsophisticated listen- 
ers, Brubeck achieved a marked 
feeling of unity between audience 
and artist. The cohesive quality 
between soloists and rhythm en- 
abled the quartet at times to reach 
the musical heights which have 
made it one of the outstanding 
modern jazz groups in the world. 
Private Interview 

In a private interview after the 
performance, Mr. Brubeck express- 
ed opinions concerning contem- 
porary jazz. 

He showed an affinity towards 
college audiences In general and 
found no appreciable differences 
between East and West. Listing 
those men who influenced him 
most, Mr. Brubeck mentioned 
band-leader-composer Duke Ell- 
ington and classical composer 
Darius Milhaud, with whom he 
studied at Mills College during the 
early '40's. This classical Influence 
is quite noticeable in his playing 
and led him to stress the import- 
ance of classical devices in jazz, 
which he feels have been evident 
in jazz since its conception. 

When questioned, however, a- 
bout such classical pianists as 
Priedrich Gulda, Don Shirley and 
Villegas who have directed their

efforts to jazz, Mr. Brubeck was 
of the opinion that musicians 
should confine themselves to their 
own fields. As his favorite pianists 
he listed Art Tatum, Fats Waller, 
Erroll Garner, Marian McPart- 
land and Teddy Wilson. He named 
Phineas Newborn as one of the 
"outstanding" young jazz pianists. 

His favorite groups included 
those of Chet Baker, George 
Shearing, Gerry Mulligan and the 
Modern Jazz Quartet. He consid- 
ers Mulligan "an individual of 
great importance". 

Freedom Unhindered 

In reaction to the growing trend 
toward composed jazz, the pianist 
expressed a firm hope that jazz 
remain improvised. He felt that 
only through improvisation can an 
artist express his own feelings and

Self-Expression In Jazz 

Phi Beta Kappa sponsored an 
informal discussion on "Contem- 
porary Thought" last Wednesday 
night in the Rathskeller. The dis- 
cussion was based on Arthur Lar- 
son's book "A Republican Looks 
at His Party" and Dean Acheson's 
"A Democrat Looks at His Party". 

Dick Schneider, in analyzing 
Larson's book, asserted that New 
Republicanism is a consensus 
embodied and personified by Pre- 
sident Elsenhower. Ame Carlson 
said he felt that Mr. Acheson had 
concentrated in his book too much 
on civil rights and foreign affairs. 

Professor Bums then comment- 
ed on what Schneider and Carlson 
had said. In his opinion there Is 
very little difference between the 
platforms of the two parties. After 
Professor Bui-ns' comments, the 
audience asked questions.

*^What's it like to he 


Five years ago, college senior Nick Hemmer asked himself this question.. 
Today, as Administrative Assistant to the Quality Control manager, Nick 
reviews his experience at IBM and gives some pointers that may be helpful 
to you in taking the first, most important step in your career as a physicist. 

"I was tremendously impressed,' ' says 
Nick, "by my first plant tour. When 
you go through the facilities— meet 
the men and get an idea of the prob- 
lems they handle— you can't help but 
become interested. Add the friendly, 
informal work atmosphere, and you 
know right oflf the bat these people 
have a story to tell." 

Nick came to IBM in 1951 with a 
B.S. in physics. He started as a Tech- 
nical Engineer— in Test Equipment 
Engineering— working on an analog 
bombing system. When that project 
moved from the Endicott to the 
Poughkeepsie plant, Nick followed it, 
becoming first an Associate Engineer, 
then a Project Engineer. As the lat- 

tion of alloys . . . or oT the properties 
of metals, such as the resistivity of 
germanium. Then, there are the im- 
portant 'analysis of failure' and 
reliability studies, in which you seek 
to determine, for example, the 'life 

Heading up Quality Englnaering 

ter, he worked on IBM's first transis- 
torized electronic computer— the 608. 

By November, '55, Nick was head- 
ing up Quality Engineering in the 
Quality Control Division of the 
Poughkeepsie plant. Recently pro- 
moted to Administrative Assistant to 
the Quality Control manager, Nick 
now concerns himself with the funda- 
mental operations and policies of this 
450-man division. Quality Control is 
responsible for the performance of 
IBM's vast array of business ma- 
chines — from simple sorters and 
punches to the "electronic brains." 

What an IBM physicist does 

"The problems of Quality Control 
in this business are endless," Nick 
reports, "and fascinating to the phys- 
icist. There's process control— of the 
manufacture of components such as 
transistors and cores ... of the con- 
tents of a gas ... of the concentricity 
of an etch solution ... of the difTrac-

time between failures, or perhaps 
which step in a process has the great- 
est efifect on the equipment involved. 
You may be asked to control the 
deposit of glass on X-ray tubes to 
avoid spill-over, or microscopic spot- 
ting. Or y'ou may be dealing with 
arc-suppression, or gaseous electron- 
ics, the grass roots of instrumentation ; 
or in the estimation of tolerances, or 

tration and concentricity of colloidal 
solutions?" "Present a job in terms 
of actual problems," believes Nick, 
"and you'll get the man's interest— 
for it's his career and his future that 
have top priority." 

How about further study? 

Nick has taken full advantage of 
IBM's extensive educational facilities 
to get ahead at IBM. He took at least 
one course each semester on subjects 
within his immediate work area- 
courses on digital and analog com- 
puters and on their components such 
as cores and transistors. He found 
time to take management courses as 
well. "If you want opportunity for 
study," Nick says, "IBM will provide 
all you want." 

Exttntlv* •ducalional facilititt 

in correlation coefficients— that is, 
in physically sound numbers." 

Nick has been instrumental in 
encouraging many college physics 
majors to come to IBM. "I find 
they're interested in questions like 
these," he says: "How would you go 
about determining the 'life' of elec- 
trons in transition from the valence 
to the conduction band?" Or, in the 
manufacture of magnetic inks, "How 
can the grain size of the iron content 
be controlled ... or its viscosity regu- 
lated over wide temperature ranges? 
How would you control the concen- 

Promolien almotl IntvltabI* 

Asked about opportunities for ad- 
vancement at IBM, Nick says, "The 
situation could hardly be better in 
that respect. With sales doubling 
every five years on the average, pro- 
motion is almost inevitable." 

IBM hopes that this message will help to 
give you some idea of what it's like to be 
a ph/sicist at IBM. There are equal op- 
portunities tor E.E.'s, M.E.'s, mathema- 
ticians and Liberal Arts majors in IBM's 
many divi.sions— Research, Manufactur- 
ing Engineering, Sales and Technical 
Services. Why not drop in and discuss 
IBM with your Placement Director? He 
can supply our latest brochure and tell 
you when IBM will next interview on 
your campus. Meanwhile, our Manager 
of Engineering Recruitment, Mr. R. A.

Rumors Spread 
That Spring Is 
Almost Here (?) 

By J. Nogrden Hash 

Spring! Spring! Wlierefore art 
thou spring? 

Today is the Ides of March. So 
what? It may be nice, it may not 
be nice, it doesn't matter. It'll 
probably snow tomorrow. 

But today, ah today, what a 
glorious day. The mid-way mark 
for hour exans, the day before 
Saturday and only eight short 
days before vacation. 

But most important, at least to 
winter-weary Ephs, only a few 
days until Spring. (Wanna bet?) 

Spriner Everywhere Else 

What we mean is that for most 
of the country spring is right a- 
round the corner. Local citizenry 
everywhere can begin to enjoy 
those wonderful, relaxing recrea- 
tions inherent in spring. (See il- 

But this is Williamstown, un- 
comfortably nestled at the foot 
of the Berkshire Mountains. Cour- 
ageous Ephmen nonetheless are al- 
so eagerly looking forward to their 
standard springtime activities (see 

Spring in Billville 

But don't get the idea that 
Williams men can look forward to 
only three more months of snow 
or eventually rain. No. Par from 
it. They can also look forward to 

All is not lost, however. Take 
heart, gentle reader, for the sun 
will soon shine (we hope), the 
roads to Northampton and South 
Hadley will soon thaw (we hope) 
and the parade to Bermington has 
already started . . . 

The Ides Have It..

Five Juniors have been named 
recipients of Mead Summer In-

enables these Juniors to work in 
Washington this summer in the 
office of a Senator or a Represen- 

Dave Phillips will receive a $500 
grant and hopes to work in Con-

students will receive $300 each on 
a long-term loan basis. They are: 
Joe Borus, Don Conklin, Sam 
Jones and Paul Klotz. 

The program was set up under 
money donated by Mr. Mead to 
encourage Williams students to 
consider government as a career. 
The jobs vary greatly but usually 
entail doing research on speeches, 
helping to write a Congressman's 
weekly letter to his constituency 
or other tasks in the Congress- 
man's office. 


Chandler Delivers Faculty Lecture, 
Considers Topic "Heaven On Earth 

Speaking on the topic "Heaven on Earth" in Thursday's fac- 
ulty lecture, John W. Chandler, assistant professor of reUgion, ex- 
amined three examples of "efforts to establish Utopias of recon- 

The three he dealt with were 
the Shakers, the Oneida Perfec- 
tionists and the Amana Inspira- 
tionalists. All of these reached 
their peak in the late nineteenth 
century and are now virtually ex- 

Professor Chandler stated that 
these religious communities were 
dependent upon strong leaders, 
but that often these leaders were 
"cases for a psychiatrist". 

"The communitarians", stated 
Chandler, "saw private property 
and monagamous marriage as the 
two main supports of individual- 
Ism, and thus as the two chief foes 
of common living. Communism 
was their way of getting rid of the 
demon of private property." 

Although the communitarians 
believed that monagamous mar- 
f'age was "an Instrument of the 
devil". Professor Chandler ob- 
served that they "did not agree on 
what should take its place". He 
stated that "celibacy was the most 
Popular substitute". 

The Oneida Perfectionists, how- 
ever, devised a system of "Com- 
plex Marriage". Professor Chand- 
ler explained that "every woman 

Record Circulation 
Reaches New High 

Reading ever faster and live- 
lier, the new Williams RECORD 
passed the 1,500 mark in cir- 
culation Friday for the first 
time since World War II. As 
subscriptions from sub-fresh- 
men and alumni continue to 
pour in, the RECORD liopes to 
reach the 2,000 mark by June 
1. Circulation has hovered a- 
round 1,300 for tlie last 10 years. 

Educator Indicts 
College Students 

A professor of political science 
at the University of Pennsylvania 
presented a blunt indictment of 
the attitudes and beliefs of A- 
merican college students to the 
twelfth National Conference on 
Higher Education in Chicago last 
week, according to "Newsweek". 

His findings were based on sur- 
veys from about 50 colleges and 
universities and on countless re- 
ports about student attitudes of 
the last fifteen years. 

"The college experience barely 
touches a student's standards of 
behavior, sense of social respon- 
sibility, perspicacity of under- 
standing of himself and others, or 
his guiding beliefs and attitudes," 
claimed Dr. Jacob. 

Few of today's college students, 
he found, are worried. "They are 
supremely confident that their 
destinies lie within their own con- 
trol rather than in the grip of ex- 
ternal circumstances . . . They in- 
tend to look out for themselves 
first and expect others to do like- 

Phinney's Favorite Five will 
play at one of Bermuda's best 
hotels over spring vacation. 

Alternating sets with a New 
York dance band, the Williams 
jazzmen will play Dixieland at the 
Elbow Beach Surf Club every night 
from nine to one. On rainy days 
and Mondays they will hold after- 
noon jam sessions. 

100 Songs 

With a repertoire of over 100 
songs, the band has played at 
Jimmy Ryan's and the Hotel 
Statler in New York. During the 
past month they have made ap- 
pearances at Vassar, Wellesley and

that the system did not give "ab- 
solute license", for "a woman who 
simply did not like a man was 
free to avoid him". 

was approved Tuesday by an 11-3 
vote of the Social Council. Ham- 
pered by poor attendance and a 
big time lag between the meet- 
ings and registration, the plan was 
only moderately successful last 

According to Dean Brooks, "the 
reactions to last year's meetings 
varied from enthusiasm to acute 
disappointment." Brooks suggested 
the plan last year after its much- 
hailed success at Dartmouth. 

Whether or not the program will 
be continued next year definitely 
hinges on its reception this year. 
Brooks indicated, as "there is no 
point in having them (meetings) 
unless they are well-attended and 
actually helpful to sophomores."

A Universal Problem 

111 light of the attuiitioii currently focused 
upon the discriiiiiiiatiaii is.sue here, it is interest- 
ing to note that similar |)robleins are also pre- 
sently in the liniehght at other colleges. 

VVesleyaii, The University of Massachusetts 
and Kent State University in Ohio among others 
are also the scene of controversy oxer racial dis- 
crimination within fraternities and sororities. 
The significant fact, by eoinijarison, is that Wil- 
liams is not only much further advanced in solv- 
ing the problem, but, ]3erha|)s of more impor- 
tance, tiiis campus is also handling the entire sit- 
uation in a much more intelligent, mature man- 

For example, all three institutions still per- 
mit discriminatory clauses witliin campus frater- 
nity and sorority constitutions. Such clauses have 
been banned here by the administration for 
some time. 

Among student bodies, the Kent State Stu- 
dent Council recently voted down a proposal to 
eliminate discrimination tliere, while a heated 
controversy over the issue at UMass was cen- 
tered squarely in the Massachusetts State Legis- 
lature this fall. Desjiite warnings from both the 
school administration and the legislators, so far 
the UMass students have done little to remedy 
tlie situation. Finally, the Wesleyan paper, the 
Argus, recently decried editorially the lack of 
progress in their anti-discrimination diive and 
tlie ■complacent" attitude of the students there 
()\('i the situation. 

Thus, the Williams student body on its own 
initiative and led by the College Council and 
Social Council, has, indeed, distinguished it- 
sell by tlie START it has made towards bringing 
the discrimination issue to a head. The creation 
of the Pliilli|)s committee, and the sensible ap- 
proach which tliat group is employing in its 
iinestigalious, are quite commendable. 

Of course, this is just the first— but very es- 
sential—step in what promises to be a prolonged 
effort. Phillips' committee, which is aheady 
(|uietly goiug about its work, will need full co- 
operation from both the fraternities and alumni 
to fulfill expectations held for it. It would be a 
shame if Uiis drive was halted or even slowed by 
students who forget that their first responsibility 
is not to their fraternities but to Williams Col- 

Letter To The Editor 

To the Record; 

I was utterly appalled by the purport of a 
story which passed witiiout comment through 
the front page of your last issue. It seems to me 
that if the Boston and Maine railroad were to 
cancel its service to the Williamstown area, your 
village university would become tantamount to 
complete isolation and elimination from society. 

Witiiout train service, the college would be- 
come inaccessible to all students and visitors 
"without wheels", a group which not only in- 
cludes two-thirds of your student populous, but 
also their bevy of feminine admirers, hand-picked 
from the surrounding (and non-driving) coun- 
tryside institutions. After all, what's a house- 
party v.'itliout the Vet's Cab Company slashing 
the fresh for a half-dollar per trip to the train sta- 
tion? Wliat's a weekend witiiout that last kiss, 
snatched hurriedly amidst the rush of suitcases, 
bodies and rainwater on the wind-swept train 
platform? And more important still, what's a 
Williams weekend without the numerous dates 
who must travel by train for lack of other trans- 

Without rails to convey our talents to the 
smooth hut impatient Ephmen, the quality as 
well as the quantity of female imports may very 
well dwindle into decadent impotence. This is 
an extremely grave problem, and any loyal Wil- 
liams undergraduate who does not beseige tlie B 
and M offices with baleful criticism of their in- 
tended action blandly encourages his own e- 
limination from society.

College Council 

By Simeral Bunch 

The College Council, our student governing 
body, holds an important |3osition on the Wil- 
liams campus. Being important, its actions should 
be followed by tlie entire student body. This 
can be done by reading the accounts of tlie meet- 
ings in the I^ecoiid. But there is another way. 

Although tlie CC meets each Monday even- 
ing at 7:30 in rooms A, B and C of Baxter Hall, 
few, if any, students make use of the su])posed 
freedom to attend these meetings as a sjjcctator. 

Ill its present iiiecthig location, the CC is 
well protected against spectators. Who but the 
most daring woultl so much as open one of these 
meeting room doors and chance die stares of ev- 
ery member of that ominous (and, to some, my- 
sterious) group, our power elite, sitting at the 
long table? And where could he sit once he got 
in? And how could he get out unnoticed if he 
got bored, as is so very possible? To attend a CC 
meeting now is uncomfortable at best. 
C/i«;igc Meeting Room 

It would seem reasonable that the CC should 
be wilhng, if not anxious, to have s])ectators at 
dieir Monday meetings. Therefore, why doesn't 
the CC hold tiiese meetings in a room where 
s]3ectators can come and go witli a minimum of 
confusion and interruption? 

The Rathskeller, or Lower Lounge if you 
prefer, seems to fit tliese specifications. Here 
the CC could meet as a body, perhaps in slight- 
ly more comfortable surroundings, and certain- 
ly ill a location well suited for allowing specta- 
tors to dro|) ill for any or aU of a meeting in or- 
der to see their class leaders in action. 

Moving tlie CC meetings to the Rathskeller 
would not brmg hoards of panting students to 
each meeting, but if the agenda is published 
in advance as the CC constitution requires, tiie 
Council will be able to tell more accurately how 
many ])co|5le really care about student govern- 
ment. Certainly they cannot complain of apathy 
until they give their electors die means for at- 
tending their official gatherings without feeluig 
like a sore thumb.

Time Heals All Wounds 

By Gay's Blade 

I always scrawl my Initials next 
to my name when I find that I 
have an assignment. Once I even 
foimd that I was supposed to cover 
the Fraternity Council meeting 
and I was really surprised because 
1 usually had to write about the 
activities of oiu' Glee Club. The 
F. C. is a meeting held each week 
oi all the heads of the different 
"frats" on om' campus and because 
I'd never been to one before I de- 
cided I was really going to study 
what went on so my copy would 
look like I knew what I was talk- 
ing about. 

Well, I went to the meeting and 
the first thing I foimd out was 
that one house didn't even send 
a member. I asked someone about 
that and they said it was nothing 
to get excited about because that 
house never sent a representative 
anyway. (I wasn't excited, I just 
thought that every house would 
want to have a guy at the meet- 
ing everytime. But I guess not.) I 
sat through the whole meeting and 
then went back to the paper office 
to write my article and thought it 
would be kind of witty if I wrote it 
up like I did my usual copy. The 
boss had told me that I'd develop- 
ed quite a style covering the Glee 
Club, and I figured there's no 
sense throwing a bhd in the hand 
back in the bush. So I wrote that 
the group was well conducted by 
the leader, but that at times there 
was dischord and lack of harmony 
in the group. On several of the is- 
sues (I referred to them as the 
"numbers" in my article) I said 
the group rushed through their 
presentation, not wanting to dwell 
on the finer notes; they seemed 
bored with the concert and wanted 
to get back to their dressing rooms. 
I also had a clever way of saying 
that there were too many people 
who just talked to hear them- 
selves talk — I said "there were 
several down-stage soloists." 

It was a good article and as I 
put it in the late-story basket I 
knew I'd done something that I'd 
be remembered for. But my story 
got lost. The boss told me that 
the janitor who cleans up the 
building must have thrown it a- 
way with the other trash, but if he 
hadn't it was a story that the pa- 
per could sure use. The boss didn't 

give me any assignment this week 
because he said they were giving 
the other compets a chance to 
show their stuff. He told me to 
take the week off, and I didn't 
even have to come to office duty. 
He said that maybe I could brush 
up on my style, or maybe even 
change it. He said I obviously had 
a good sense of humor because of 
the way I inserted clever little 
things in my copy, but that I 
should try a stiffer, formalized, 
mo: e reporterish style like the kind 
everybody on the paper has. Tlie 
boss said that college kids like to 
pick up a paper and have it all 
read the same. It was important, 
he said, that every story read like 
it was written by the same imper- 
sonal, fact-seeking reporter. If 
they were going to inject "Ufe" 
into the paper (which is all I was 
trying to do) they'd do it by 
changing one or two of the facts 
of an article, or by mis-quoting 
someone. My idea was all right for 
a magazine, but on a college paper 
you don't want long, witty sen- 
tences that sometimes even end in 
prepositions. That's just plain bad 
grammar, he said, something they 
had no use for. 

I felt bad, somewhat, about what 
the boss had told me so I bought 
a copy of TIME magazine down 
town and took it back to my room 

to study it.

Chi Psi Wins Intramural Laurels; 
Phi Gam Takes Second, AD Third 

More than forty amateur swim- 
mers took part In the finals of in- 
tramural swimming Wednesday as 
Chi Psi led a field of ten frater- 
nities and one freshman team to 
capture the college crown. The 
Phi Gams held a slim lead going

Kaufman piled up ten points with 
a first place in the 100 yd. free- 
style, third place in the diving and 
anchor man on the winning relay 
team. Schoeller, swimming for the 
three-man A.D. team, swam a 25.1 
to win the 50 yard final, and was 
second to Kaufman's 59.8 in the 

Phi Gam's high scorer was Jim 
Murphy who copped a third in the 
fifty and one-hundred yard free- 
style events. Pre-meet favorite, 
A.D., was knocked out of the run- 
ning when their crack relay team 
was disqualified because of a false 
start but they were able to salvage 
a third place in the standings.

Williams Key Sends 
Three To Conference 

Key associations from eleven 
northeastern colleges sent repre- 
sentatives to the first meeting of 
the Eastern Intercollegiate Key 
Association which was held at 
Princeton University the weekend 
of March 9-11. 

Representatives to the meeting 
from Williams were Gary Short- 
lidge, president of the Williams 
Purple Key, John Buckner, and 
Jack Laeri, The conference began 
with a general meeting on Sat- 
urday, which was followed by dis- 
cussion groups. 

Each representative discussed 
his own Key, its function and fi- 
nancial status. "From these 
groups," stated the Williams dele- 
gates, "we were able to get ideas 
advantageous for us to incorporate 
into our programs." 

Several proposals discussed are 
to be considered at the next con- 
ference. One concerns a loan sys- 
tem whereby all members contri- 
bute and are eligible for low rate 
loans. One idea now in effect is a 
communication system among the 
Conference members. This corres- 
pondence would involve dates of 
big weekends for publicity and any 
questions the organizations might 

A Campus-to-Career Case History 

Leader of an exploration 

Owen Williams leads a team of re- 
search and development specialists at 
Bell Telephone Laboratories. His is one 
of many teams set up at the Labs to ex- 
plore the frontiers of electronics and com- 
munications. In the picture above, Owen 
(right) discusses modulation problems 
in electron tubes with Robert Leopold, 
M.S., Electrical Engineering, University 
of Michigan, 1949. 

Owen himself is thirty-one, and a 
B.E.E. from Rensselaer Polytechnic In- 
stitute, class of '49. He joined the Labs 
upon graduation, and was assigned to 
communications development training — 
the equivalent of a two-year postgraduate 
course in communications. Mixed with 
his classes were various assignments in 

the Chem Lab, the switching and wave 
filter departments, and work on transmis- 
sion systems and coaxial cables. 

In 1954 Owen was promoted to super- 
visor. He works with two electrical en- 
gineers, both systems analysts, and four 
technical assistants. Their current job is 
exploratory development of submarine 
cable systems, looking towards great new 
transoceanic communications links. 

Owen is one of many engineers and 
scientists in the Bell System whose prin- 
cipal responsibilities include those of 
leadership. The work of improving tele- 
phone service in the Bell System is 
guided, and decisions are made, by men 
who understand the problems involved 
at first hand. 

Many young men like Owen WilliamB are finding 
interesting and rewarding careers in the Bell 
System - at Bell Telephone Laboratories, in Bell 
Telephone Companies, Western Electric and 
Sandia Corporation. Your placement officer can

tunities in all Bell System companies. 




Shaw Conducts Saturday Program 
For Young Basketball Enthusiasts 

By Chuck Dunkel 

For the past several weeks, Sat- 
urday morning by-passers may 
have noticed the varsity basketball 
court in Lasell Gym occupied by a 
group of enthusiastic youngsters. 
This spectacle can be credited to 
Williams Coach Al Shaw. 

For the past eight years, Shaw 
has been conducting a basketball 
clinic for boys. The youngsters, all 
between the ages of 9 and 13, meet 
each Saturday morning at the 
early hour of 8:30. The class lasts 
until 10:00, when the court is used 
for the college physical training 

Although primarily restricted to 
children of faculty members, this 
program also includes a few 
youngsters from Williamstown. 
This season Shaw and his assis- 
tant. Tank Wilson of Williams- 
town, worked with a group of 23 
boys. An employee of Sprague E- 
lectric, Wilson sometimes scouts 
Williams basketball opponents. 

Instruction in Fundamentals 

The two coaches work with the 
boys for the first part of each ses- 
sion, teaching them the funda- 
mentals and basic skills of the 
sport. Then the boys split up into 
four teams and play regular games 
for the rest of the period. "We 
spent more time on Instruction 
last year," says Shaw, "but decid- 
ed it would be better to give them 
more actual playing time this 

The program starts each winter 
early in December and runs until 
early March. Twice each season 
the boys play during the halftime 
intermission of a varsity game. 
"These two games are the high- 
points of the program", comments 

Williams' AL SHAW, who runs 
basketball clinic for boys. 

Shaw. "The boys look forward to 
them all year." 

Shaw Originates Idea 

Shaw is the man who is respon- 
sible for originating this program 
at Williams. He introduced it in 
his first year here and it was an 
immediate success. In the eight 
years since then Shaw has helped 
start many young basketball hope- 
fuls on the road to .success, includ- 
ing Williamstown High's 1956 cap- 
tain Andy Nutting. 

In looking back, Shaw sum- 
marizes, "The kids seem to enjoy 
this program and they look for- 
ward to it each Saturday. Many 
are the cold winter mornings that 
I've found the boys lined up at the 
door at 8:00, eager to get started." 
As for next year, Shaw says, "We 
hope to continue the program if 
the demand keeps up."

Ibsen Play To Open 
At AMT This Evening 

Because of an early RECORD deadline, a review of the "Wild 
Duck" cannot be published. This report is based on Monduy niEht's 
dress rehearsal. 

by Bill Edi^ar 
The red curtain will rise on Henrik Ibsen's grim comedy "The 
Wild Duck" tonight at 8:30, beginning a three-night run at the 
Adams Memorial Theater. 

Thanks largely to the directionO 

of Giles Playfair and to some com 

potent acting, the production 
IJiomises to be well worth three 
liours of anyone's time. 

The play, one of Ibsen's most 
.sympathetic and beautiful dra- 
mas, is above all a sensitive study 
of provincial character. Around 
this, Ibsen weaves the ideas that 
morality is relative rather than ab- 
.solute. and that illusion is a ne- 
cessary part of happiness. 
Dramatis I'ersonnae 

Robert Vail '58, gives the out- 
standing performance of tlie show 
with his interpretation of Gregers 
Werle. Immersing himself deep 
into his part, his acting becomes 
realistic and natural. 

The delicate and subtle part of 
Hialmar Ekdal is the most diffi- 
cult in the play. Although his in- 
terpretation may lack the depth 
of Vail's, Benjamin Tully '58, has 
ably met the challenge of playing 
the central character in Ibsen's 

As Gina, Hialmar's warm, hu- 
man and simple wife caught in 
the painful dramatic situation, 
Mrs. William Martin provides su- 
perb acting. 

Minor Characters

Distler '59, is a convincingly "ship- 
wrecked" old man. Playing Hed-

O'Neill Discusses 
Current Theatre 

Five current Broadway plays 
were singled out as highlighting 
the current Broadway Theatrical 
season by Prof, Jack O'Neill 
Thursday in a Rathskeller Collo- 

The best of this season, accord- 
ing to Mr. O'Neill, are: Eugene O'- 
Neill's "Long Day's Journey into 
Night;" Graham Greene's "The 
Patting Shed;" Terrance Ratti- 
gan's "Separate Tables;" Anouilh's 
"Waltz of the Toreadors;" and 
George Bernard Shaw's "Major 

Although the off-broadway the- 
atres haven't "gone shoe" in their 
physical appearance, and they still 
draw their share of "odd balls, 
beards, blue jeans, and pony tails," 
there are, O'Neill said, several 
worthwhile plays to be seen in 
these out-of-the-way theatres. 
"The Threepenny Opera," "Purple 
Dust," "Exiles," "The Lady's Not 
For Burning," and "The Iceman 
Cometh" are the top attractions 
here, he said. 

Outing Cluh Drops Eighteen Hour 
Eligibility Requirement; Dues Suftice 

Under the new WOC constitution there is no longer an 18-hour 
work requirement for membership to the organization. Payment of 
the two-dollar membership fee will be sufficient for membership 
ill the future. 

Modeled after constitution of the Dartmouth Outing Club, the 
new constitution features a broader spread of responsibility and 
a smaller executive board. The new board, headed by President- 
elect Sandy Fetter, is comprised of five voting and three non-voting 
Omembers; last year's board had 

twelve members. 

Edmund Kean Topic 
Of Faculty Lecture 

Giles Playfair, Director of the 
Adams Memorial Theater, will de- 
liver a lecture entitled "Edmund 
Kean" Thursday at 4:30 p.m. in 
the Biology Lab. 

Edmund Kean is considered one 
of the greatest Shakespearean ac- 
tors and tragedians that ever ap- 
peared on the London stage. Des- 
pite his physical defects, Kean 
made memorable his interpreta- 
tions and tragic characters by his 
eloquence and dramatic force. 

This is the last In the series 
of seven faculty lectures that be- 
gan February 7. 

The new constitution provides 
for two men to handle the social 
aspect of Winter Carnival while 
in the past one person had the 
job; it also provides for a vice- 
president, who is a voting board 
member, and a staff under him for 
each of the three WOC divisions: 
Cabin and Trail, Winter Carnival 
and Winter Sports. 

The three non-voting members 
are Nick Smith, Membership; Jay 
Locke, Programs and Bill Edgar,

Gargoyle Suggests Changes 
In Total Opportunity Report 

by Mack Ilassler 

In a report issued this week Gargoyle recommended an entirely new approach to the solution 
of the Total Opportunity ])roblem at WilHams. This solution involves the use of u social member- 
ship system in liateniities for those not receiving final bids during rushing. 

The three jiage rejjort notes first that Gargoyle favors Total Ojiportunity. It goes on to cite 
the |)rublenis of the present system in which "only a small number of .students arc denied the advan- 
tages of fraternity life." 

A short summary of the history 
of consistent failures in agree- 
ments between the fraternities to 
guarantee complete opportunity 
for membership follows. 

The complete text of the Gar- 
goyle Report on Total Opportuni- 
ty appears on pag:e 6. 

New Method 

II is on this point that the 
Gargoyle recommendation at- 
tempts something new. In addi- 
tion to urging houses to give final 
bids to all rushees, this plan offers 
the alternative of extending social 
membership invitations to those 
individuals not receiving final bids. 

"Social membership shall con- 
.sist of dining and social privileges 
for a period of one month." It is 
hoped that at the end of this 
month the individual will either 
be pledged or his social member- 
sliip will be extended. 

A similar system is now operat- 
ing successfully at Wesleyan. The

Southerner Describes 
'Cold Reception^ Here 

An editor of a Southern newspaper who lectured at Williams 
last month recently wrote a bitter description of the "cold recep- 
tion" which he claims he received here. 

Thomas H. Warhig, editor of the Charleston NEWS AND 
GOURlEli, spoke I'^eb. 21 to a sparsely-filled auditorium on "The 
South's case for Separation of the l^aces."

Annual Bowdoin Plan Fund Drive 
Counts On 100% Student Response 

Williams' record of almost 100% student response to the an- 
nual Bowdoin Plan Fund drive is being counted on again this 
year to pay room expenses for Williams' Bowdoin Plan students. 
The fund, which has since 1948 sjionsored students from 15 
countries at Williams on the basis 
of need and scholarship ability, is 
asking $1.50 contributions from 
each undergraduate. 

The college waives tuition fees 
for Bowdoin plan students who ro- 
tate meals between the fraternities 
and Baxter Hall. Textbooks are

Two Cornell co-eds appeared at 
Griffin Hall Friday in a debate 
against a Williams team of John

The topic of debate concerned 
the advantages offered by a .small 
college as compared to those of a 
large university. Centering about 
the overall preparation for life 
after college, each team discussed 
the various advantages of its par- 
ticular institution in terms of stu- 
dent-faculty relationship, number 
of courses available, facilities, en- 
dowment and scholarships.

curriculum will be included in the 
Announcement of Coui'ses for the 
1957-58 college year which will be 
released by the Registrar's office 
immediately after Spring vaca- 

Professor-writer James Mac- 
Gregor Burns will deal with his 
specialty when he teaches the new 
Political Science 15 course entitled 
"American Parties and Politics". 
Contrary to this year's announce- 
ment, Professor Schuman's course 
on the Soviet Union, Poll Scl 18, 
will again be offered in compli- 
ance with popular demand. 

As a parallel course for both art 
and religion majors, the new Art 
10a course entitled "Art and Re- 
ligion In the Middle Ages" will 
combine the teaching abilities of 
Professors Stoddard and Cole. In 
addition, the religion department 

will offer a detailed historical 
study of "American Religious 
Thought" (Religion 13-14) as part 
of the new major course of study. 

The Greek major will also be 
expanded next year with addition 
of a 7-8 course on "Lyric Poetry 
and Thucydides" under the tute- 
lage of Mr. Edwards. In the Ec- 
onomics Department, the 3-4 
course will deal with "Economic 
Growth and Stability" instead of 
"Money and Income", and the 
courses in "Public Finance and 
Fiscal Policy" and "American Ec- 
onomic History" will not be of- 

Professor Root will teach a new 
German 9 course entitled "Goethe 
and Schiller" in 1957, replacing 
the "Modern German Lyric" course 
now being offered. Finally, a new 
See Page 3, Col. 5 


The major presentation on the 
program will be Haydn's oratorio 
"The Creation". As one of the 
highlights of this number the or- 
chestra has sections of "tone 
painting" in which it depicts na- 
tural phenomena as hail, thunder, 
rain and snow. 

The first part of the program 
will be devoted to a mixture of 
sacred and secular selections sung 
by the Smith choir under the di- 
rection of Helen Stott Spencer. 
Included will be the first perfonn- 
ance of a work for .small women's 
chorus by Challoner Spencer, hus- 
band of the director of the Smith 

Soloists Well Known 

Tire first section will be con- 
cluded with a performance of 
Heinrich Schutz's "The Lord's 
Prayer" for double chorus. The 
Williams Small Group will com- 
bine with a similar Smith group 
for the presentation. 

The two soloists for the "Crea- 
tion", Betty Wilson, Charles Bres- 
sler and Mac Morgan, are all well-

A Healthy Start 

Total Opportunity has been kicked around 
here for many years. But the new Gargoyle plan, 
outlined on page one and printed on page six, 
appears to be one of the most ]Dractical and 
realistic solutions forwarded in some time. 

In essense the plan provides that all soph- 
omores who do not receive a final bid or who 
bounce out of the system will be extended SO- 
CIAL membershi]) ( social and eating privileges ) 
in a house. After a month on this basis the 
sophomore will probably have made enough 
friends in the house. Gargoyle theorises, to en- 
sure his initiation as a regular member. 

The key to the Gargoyle Recommeadation 
and the main reason the plan deserves particular 
attention in the fraternities is that it overcome the 
formidable obstacle which in the past has pre- 
vented the realization of Total Opportunity. "This 
finally, is a workable plan which "works toward 
Total Opportunity without infringing on the 
fraternity's rights of selectivity." 

True, this is sort of a compromise measure 
short of full-fledged Total Opportunity. At the 
same time, however, it is a healtliy step along a 
path which probably cannot be travelled over- 
night. It also embodies the practical advantage 
of being able to satisfy diose houses which are 
pressured, from one source or another, to re- 
ject any method of forced pledging. 

At this early stage the Gargoyle plan, far 
from the last to be heard about Total Opportun- 
ity and Rushing in general this spring, appears 
to have considerable merit. It works well at 
other schools— it could do the same here. 

A Trophy-Winner 

One of Williams' least known but more ac- 
tive organizations, the Adelphic Union, distin- 
guished itself over the weekend and brought 
credit to the school in the process. 

The debaters scored a decisive victory over 
16 other colleges to win the Siena Tournament 
and a handsome trophy to boot. In addition, 
two of the Ephs were singled out as the best 
individual speakers at the event. 

The Adelphic Union receives one of every 
five dollars given out by the SAC. The AU cur- 
rently is enjoying one of its most succesful sea- 
sons and appears to be more than earning its 
share of the student body's money. 'The dd)at- 
ers are to be congratulated for this latest triumph 
and it is hoped that they can enjoy similar good 
fortune in Little Three Competition next month. 

To The Recobd: 

I graduated from Williams almost fifty 
years ago. I return to Williamstown at every 
opportunity. Since graduation I do not think diat 
I have missed a year in subscribing to the Rec- 
ord. It is my main means of keeping in touch 
with the college. I read every issue. Every topic 
discussed is of interest except one, and that has 
to do with the fraternities. 

When you young men get out into the world 
you will find that you choose your friends be- 
cause they are congenial. They are your kind. 
You will join social clubs because of the calibre 
of membership. You will look for a congenial 
place to hang your hat. Every man in the street 
cannot become a member. 

The same thing applies to tlie fraternity sys- 
tem at Williams. I agree that fraternities should 
not have rules for admission which in any way 
restricts who they may take in as a member. Wiry 
should any fraternity take any boy who is not 
congenial and ones who do not fit? Who should 
be taken shoud be entirely in the hands of the 
active members of every chapter on the campus. 

Boys have always gone to Williams because 
their friends and relatives went there and be- 
cause they wished to make the fraternity their 
friends and relatives have made. This is what 
I did. My fraternity did more for me than any 
other one thing at WdUams College. What it 
stood for has been my guiding principle through 

It irritates me to have the fraternity sys- 
tem at Williams dragged through the editorial 
board of the Record. Every Record board hash- 
es over the same old stuff. It makes copy to 
carry the advertising but it does WiUiams College 
a great disservice. 

I should like to see the Williams Record 
drop all reference to the fraternity system and 
editorially forget that we have fraternities at 
Williams. If a fraternity house should burn 
dovim the fact should be carried under "fire 
department news." For heavens sake! Stop try- 
ing to ruin a social system, which has been suc- 
cessfully operated for well over a hundred years. 
Yes, long before you boys were born.

The Question 

Letter To The Editor 

To The Record: 

It is a prime objective of both the Fresh- 
man and Sophomore councils to bring our class- 
es in closer contact. The Frosh-Soph smoker 
planned for Friday night has been conceived 
with this objective in mind. Beer, entertainment 
and all the trimmings will add to this first "get 
acquainted" blast. We hope this gathering will 
initiate three years of close cooperation and 
friend,ship between Williams' most outstanding 

See you Friday night!

Next fall there is rushing. Briefly, rushing 
is a five day period of hypocrisy, the aim of 
which is to fill the fifteen fraternities at Wil- 
liams. Presumably to atone for the self-degrada- 
tion which often surrounds this annual occasion, 
the student body spends the rest of the year 
thinking of ways to introduce fairness and sin- 
cerity into the system. This righteousness reaches 
its height in the spring. Gargoyle, the C.C, and 
other reforming organizations each offer their 

The gist of the annual plans is to achieve 
"total opportunity." If this state of bliss were ever 
attained, all sophomores witli desire to join the 
system would get a bid from at least one frater- 
nity. Let us assume that this system existed. What 
would it mean? First it would mean that, unless 
every rushee was genuinely wanted by a house, 
the fraternity's right of selection would be denied. 

Plans for "total opportunity" have usually 
involved lotteries and the like to distribute the 
"undesired" candidates. If "total opportunity" 
were achieved fraternities would not be frater- 
nities any more. They would no longer have 
complete license to choose their potential "bro- 

It is precisely because "total opportunity" 
means an end to complete selectivity— an end to 
fratemities-that no plan has ever been effective. 
The issue of racial discrimination is, of course, 
another cause. Thus the question is not, "Should 
there be 'total opportunity'?" but "Should there 
be fraternities?" "This is the issue involved. 

I hope that the reforming organizations will 
realize this and devote their efforts in the future 
to answering this question: "Is the fraternity 
system valid enough to warrant the rejection of 
'undesired' students each year?"

(Author of "Barefoot Boy With Cheek," etc.) 


Recently I made an extensive tour of American cam- 
puses, interviewing students and selling mechanical dogs, 
and one of the most frequent complaints I heard from 
undergraduates was, "My faculty advisor doesn't really 
care about me." 

Everywhere I went I heard this same cry. (Indeed, 
at one university I found 15,000 students jammed in the 
field house chanting it a cavpcUa.) But I am bound to 
say, dear friend.s, that you are wrong. Your faculty 
advisor rfocs care about you. The trouble is, he doesn't 
kmrw you. And no wonder! How do you expect him to 
know you when you see him once or so a semester? 

Get to be friends with your faculty advisor-like, for 
example, Alpine R. Sigafoos, a sophomore in timothy and 
silage at Texas A. & M. 

Alpine R. Sigafoo.s appeared one night in the living 
quarters of his faculty advi.'-'or (whose name, by a curious 
coincidence, was also Alpine R. Sigal'oos). 

"Good evening, sir," said Student Sigafoos. "I am 
come so that you may get to know me better and thus 
help me solve the vexing problems that trouble me." 

\M ^re tfiose tktee p^cy6es? ^ 

"And what are those three packages you are carry- 
ing?" asked Advisor Sigafoos. 

"This," said Student Sigafoo.s, holding up the first of 
the three packages, "is a carton of Philip Morris Ciga- 
rettes, which come in long size or regular, and without 
which I never stir. It is, sir, a smoke beyond compare- 
full of fresh, natural, unfiltered flavor that delights the 
taste, salves the soul, and turns the whole world into 
one long vista of peace and greenery. Try one, sir." 

"Thank you," said Advisor Sigafoos, lighting a Philip 
Morris Cigarette. He puffed appreciatively for an hour 
or two and then said, "And what is in the other packages 
you are carrying?" 

"I am rather a complex fellow," said Student 
bigafoos, and I don't expect that you will get to know 
me in a hurry. So," he .said, holding up his second pack- 
age, I have brought my bed-roll." 

„ A "\ '^^^'" ^^^^ Advisor Sigafoos, not entirely pleased. 
"And what is this third package?" 

"Well sir, I know that occasionally you will be 
with other matters and will therefore be unable to spend 
time with me So I have brought along my gin rummy 
partner, Walter M. Handzlik." 

In the next two years Advisor Sigafoos, living cheek- 
by-jowl with Student Sigafoos, got to know all of the 
lads personality traits, his hopes, his fears, his drives 
his quirks, his aspirations. At the end of that time' 
arnied with true understanding, Advisor Sigafoos con- 
cluded that Student Sigafoos's basic trouble was that he 
was not really college material. 

fi, M° ^ff cf Sigafocs got Student Sigafoos a job with 
the North Star Hockey Puck Corporation where today he 
IS head of the puck-packing department and a happy man. 
Advisor Sigafoos is happy too. He has time again to 
pur.sue his studie.s of Trichohatrachns rohuMu:^. the hairy 
ti-og At night he plays gin rummy with Walter M.

To Tlie Record: 

The enclosed article is evidence tliat somebody has waked 
up to the fact that athletics at Williams are in not too good condi- 
tion. I have often threatened to write your paper to get a list of the 
games between Amherst and Williams and the scores during the 
last five years. Would not such a list be the best thing to bring it 
to the attention of students and others? 

After having been out of college 45 years and been back to 
Williamstown more than 150 times and been in pretty close con- 
tact with the undergraduates through sous of my friends and 
three of my own boys who graduated, I think I know one of the 
answers to this unfortunate situation. I may be wrong and many 
who believe my answer is right will not admit it for obvious rea- 
sons. I think the general reason that our atliletics have slid is be- 
cause many of the best athletes are not willing to give up their 
women and liquor to do the necessary training. My second reason 
is that those to whom my first reason does not apply are just too 
darned lazy and haven't got the guts to train. An integral part 
of these two reasons is the proximity of Bennington College. 

Why don't you get out the list of games and scores for the 
last five years and then we will know what we are talking about. 

Sincerely yours, 
Hamilton B. Wood '10 

The above letter came as a shock to the editors of the Record. 
We are sorry that we have insufficient room to satisfy Mr. Wood's 
request for a summary of the last five years of the Williams— Am- 
herst athletic rivalry. It would no doubt go a long way towards 
proving that Williams has more than held its own. While it is 
true that Amherst has had an obvious football supremacy, the Eph- 
men have consistently overwhelmed the Jeffs in a number of other 

This problem, however, was handled in this column two 
weeks ago. What is shocking in Mr. Wood's letter is his allega- 
tion of "women and liquor" as the cause of the "downfall" of 
Williams athletics. Even if we grant to Mr. Wood that the Eph- 
men have undergone such a "dovsmfall", his protest will not hold 
water in the context of life as it is in Williamstown. 

There are some athletes who fit Mr. Wood's description. We 
can not tiy to whitewash them, but Amherst has them also; be- 
yond this so do the New York Yankees, the Milwaukee Braves and 
the Boston Bruins. It is not surprising to find those in any group of 
athletes who do not stick to the rules. Sometimes even the great- 
est athletes are those who are the biggest breakers of training reg- 
ulations. John L. Sullivan, Babe Ruth and Hugh Casey were not 
exactly Simon Pures. 

While it is true that Williams has its share of training breakers, 
what is really surprising is how few they really are. Coach Bob 
Muir is one of the most mild-rnannered men on the Williams 
coaching staff. He uses no booming tirades or threats of violence 
to keep his swimmers at the training table. But anyone who sees 
how most of his boys keep as strictly to the rules as they do, might 
well imagine the coach as a booming blustering tryant who keeps 
an eagle eye on tlie training habits of his swimmers. 

What this shows more than anything else is the degree of 
maturity which most Williams athletes have. The swimmers are 
no different from the hockey players or the golfers. Williams is 
geared toward the well-rounded man, not toward the mechanical 
athlete. We are not Russians training for the Olympics. We are 
young men trying to get as much out of college as we can. 

If there are some who do not keep strictly to the code of 
an athlete in training, the responsibility is theirs. It is nonetlieless 
pleasing to note the great number who are willing to sacrifice 
for the good of the team. There are quite a few who do "think a- 
bout the game". i. 

Mr. Wood's remark about Bennington can draw nothing but 
laughter from any Williams man. Certainly there is more of an 
attraction for Amherst in Smith and Holyoke than there is for 
Wilhams in Bennington. Besides, Amherst is closer to Smith and 
Holyoke than we are to Bennington. Most relationships between 
Bennington girls and Wilhams athletes are purely coincidental.

Tournament Decides Basketball Champions 

With their respective division 
championships sewed up, the Chi 
Psis and the A. D.'s will battle 
for the intramural basketball title

Tlie Chi Psis ran through an un- 
defeated season in their league 
while the A. D.'s found the com- 
petition a bit tougher, winding up 
the season with a 7-2 record and 
knotted in a fourway tie for first 

An elimination tournament to 
decide the league champions

Hirshman Leads Inexperienced Chaffeemen; 
Squad To Head South For Spring Practice 

Bolstered by the return of five 
lettermen Coach Clarence Chaf- 
fee will take the tennis team on its 
annual southern tour which in- 
cludes seven matches starting 
March 25. 

"I am proud of this schedule," 
said Coach Chaffee. "For a small 
college it is wonderful," he added 
in commenting about the schedule 
which includes William and Mary, 
university of Virginia, North 
Carolina, Country Club of Vir- 
ginia, Navy and Princeton. 

In beating William and Mary, 
Virginia and Navy in the pre-sea- 
son matches, last year's team did 
the best that has been done In re- 
cent years. 

Although the team will greatly 
feel the loss of last year's captain 
Wally Jensen who was not only 
number one player but also the 
top doubles man, first- ranked Karl 
Hirshman is being counted on to 
fill the gap left by Jensen. On the 
southern swing Hirshman will play 
first doubles with returning letter- 
man Dave Leonard. 

Coach Chaffee said that the 

Movies are your best entertainment 
See the Big Ones at 

prospects for the coming seaaon 
are not as good as last season be- 
cause of the inexperience of the 
squad. Five lettermen are return- 
ing but there is not much support 
from the sophomore contingent. 

Sophomore Joe Turner is the 
only highly-experienced member 
of last year's freshman team and 
will play on one of the doubles 
teams. Captain Sam Eells and 
Tom Shulman will probably com- 
prise another doubles team. 
Practice Matches 
To Alter Rankings 

The ladder at present stands: 
Hirshman, Shulman, Leonard, 
Turner, Eells, Mel Searls, Jeff 
Morton, Ei-nie Fleishman, Tom 
Davidson, and Chris Schaefer but 
these should change after the 
series of practice matches. 

Bob Kingsbury is not making 
the trip because of his engage- 
ment with Phiimey's Favorite Five 
In Bermuda, but Coach Chaffee is 
expecting him to play enough that 
he will eventually team up with 
Hirshman as the first doubles com- 

The first match will be with 
William and Mary March 25. The 
next day the team will play at U. 
Va. before beginning the three day 
series at Chapel Hill with North 
Carolina. Country Club of Vir- 
ginia, Navy and Princeton round 
out the pre-season schedule.

Strong Sophomores 

Although last year's record was 
a dismal 2-6, Coach Ostendarp 
looks for better things this season. 
The entire Williams defense group 
will be returning, led by co-captain 
Joe Perrott. Bill Weaver and Tony 
Brockelman will lead the attack, 
and soph Charles Jankey should be 
in the goal. Besides Jankey, the 
squad will boast a number of sophs 
from last year's strong freshman 

The team opens their season on 
April 23 with an away game a- 
gainst Union. The eight game sea- 
son will close with the Amherst 
contest on May 18.

Baseball Coach Bobby Coombs 

Baseball Team Opens Spring Trip 
Against Elon College Next Monday 

With almost the same starting Une-up as last year's Little 
Three Champions, the Williams baseball team will head south 
March 23, on its annual spring trip. 

Coach Bobby Coombs' eighteen man squad will open the 
Exhibition season against Elon College, Elon, N. C, March 25. 
The Ephmen play Elon again the next day and then move on to 

Messenheimer, N. C, for a game 
with Pfeiffer College March 27. 
Last Spring Williams defeated 
Pfeiffer 16-12, but lost twice to the 
powerful Elon squad. 

The Ephs meet Guilford College 
in Greensboro, N. C, on March 
28 and 29, before traveling to Vir- 
ginia for a game with the Uni- 
versity of Richmond on the 30th. 
On the return trip Williams will 
play Princeton March 1 and Up- 
sala March 2. Last year the Ephs 
beat Guilford twice but lost to 
Upsala while compiling a 4-3 rec- 

Seven Starters Return 
Led by co-captains Dick Ennis 
and Dick Pearon Coach Coombs 
has seven of eight starters back 
from the 1956 team, which com- 
piled an overall 11-4 record. Re- 
turning inf ielders are first base- 
man Dick Marr, second baseman 
Dick Sheehan and shortstop Rich 
Power. However, all will face stiff 
competition for their positions 
from a promising group of sopho- 

Coombs plans to give sophomore 
Bob McAlaine a shot at the third 
base position vacated by Pearon. 
McAlaine was the leading hitter on 
the frosh last year while playing 
shortstop. Sophomore Dick Kagen, 
who can play either second or 
third, will be in reserve. 

The veteran corps of outfielders 
is headed by starters Bob Iverson 
and Dick Ennis. Ennis has led the 
team in hitting for the past two 
seasons, while the speedy Iverson 
is noted for his defensive play. 
Dick Pearon will be in right field, 
with Bill Hedeman and Jim Ste- 
vens battling to break into the 
lineup. Pearon is making the shift 
from third base. 

Marv Weinstein, a regular until 
he injured his knee in mid-season, 
will handle the catching duties 
with sophomore Tom Christopher 
in reserve. The pitching staff is 
headed by three veteran seniors, 
Don McLean, Bob Newey, and Dick 

McLean had the lowest earned 
run average last spring while com- 
piling a 4-1 record. Newey had a 
2-1 record, while the lefthanded 
Plood stood 2-0. 

Golfers Bermuda Bound 

Coach Dick Baxter will lead 
twelve Williams golfers to Ber- 
muda this spring vacation for their 
annual practice sessions in the 
sunny southland. The group plans 
to leave Saturday. 

Baxter will use the trip to se- 
lect his starting group from a- 
mong four lettermen and four 
sophomores. Pour promising fresh- 
men will also make the trip. 

Due to a date shift in the Ber- 
muda open, the team will enter a 
smaller substitution tourney. Af- 
ter this four day contest, the Eph- 
men will tune up their games on 
the beautiful Mid Ocean course, 
until they fly back to New York on 
April second. 

The team opens its season a- 
gainst RPI on April 27.

Gargoyle Total Opportunity Report 

The Gargoyle Society feels that Total Opportunity should be 
brought about on the Williams Campus. Being excluded from 
the college social system may harm the student mentally and emo- 
tionally, and denies him the social opportunities enjoyed by the 
great majority of Williams students. This problem is gready inten- 
sified since under the present system only a small number of stu- 
dents are denied the advantages of fraternity life. 

Inherent in all jMevious attempts to achieve Total Opportu- 
nity were specific plans or agreements by the fraternities that 
would guarantee complete membership, lu 1950, for instance, 
a student vote favored the princii^le of Total Opportunity, but no 
agreement could be reached on a mechanical system. 

Although undergraduate sentiment has been more favorable 
to die idea of Total OpiJortunity, last year tlie fraternities still 
did not agree in advance to e.\tend bids to all sophomores who 
desired fraternity membershi]5. 

The present Gargoyle proposal works toward Total Opportu- 
nity without infringing on the fraternity right of selectivity. The 
Gargoyle Society realizes that the most deskable way for Total 
Oi3|)ortunity to be achieved is by voluntary action by the frater- 
nities. To help achieve Uiis goal, Gargoyle recommends the fol- 

A. that die significance of Total Opportunity be kept cons- 
tandy before die student body. Therefore Gargoyle suggests: 

1. diat two panel discussions be held for the freshmen-the first 
to explain the mechanics of rushing, the history of the present 
system, and tlie responsibility of the fraternity and rushee during 
rushing; the second to deal with Total Opportunity and a descrip- 
tion of fraternity and independent hfe. 

2. diat entry meetings following the second panel discussion be 
led by a member of Gargoyle in which closer, more personal, and 
comprehensive presentation can be made. 

3. diat at die sophomore meeting prior to rushing, a member of 
Gargoyle reiterate, the significance of Total Opportunity and point 
out that if it is not achieved, they, the sophomores, must work 
for it within their future houses. 

4. that Total Opportunity be brought up in house meetings di- 
rectly before or during rushing; that this Gargoyle report be re- 
viewed within tiie houses, and die College and Social Councils 
keep Total Ojiportunity before the student body, perhaps at a 
college meeting. 

B. that die following Social Membership System be adopted 
by die fraternities: 

1. Immediately after the bounce session, a list shall be distributed 
to all fraternities of (a) diose who received no final bids during 
rushing, (b) those who have bounced out without refusing any 
final bid, and (c) those Junior and Senior non-fraternity men who 
wish to be considered for social membership. (Those who refuse 
final bids shall be eligible for social membership as soon as they 
are ehgible for regular membership, i.e., after waiting time pre- 
scribed by die rushing agreement.) 

2. At the subsecjuent post rushing meeting, after it is clear tiiat 
no fraternity is able to extend any additional final bids, the fra- 
ternity representatives shall offer social membership invitations 
to those remaining without bids. Tliese shall be turned into die 

Rushing Arbiter and given out 
with the regular final bids. After 
receiving his social membership 
invitations, the sophomore should 
notify the Rushing Arbiter of his 
acceptance within an hour. 

3. Social Membership shall con- 
sist of dining and social privileges 
for a period of one month. At the 
end of this time the fraternity 
may either pledge the social mem- 
ber, extend the social membership 
or notify the Social Council, one 
week In advance, that the social 
member will be dropped and there- 
fore win be available for other bid.s 
or social membership Invitations. 

4. No fraternity shall have more 
than five social members at one 

Gargoyle . . . 

mendation will not occur until 
their rushing committee has sub- 
mitted Its report, expected some- 
time in April.

Waring . . . 

Mr. Waring noted that one stu- 
dent during the question period 
charged the crowd, "There are 15 
fraternities on this campus. Only 
one admits Negroes. You are a 
bunch of hypocrites." 

"They said it was not moral to 
separate the races," continued Mr. 
Waring. "They were not impressed 
by the reply that white Southern- 
ers thought it was moral to look 
after the upbringing of their child- 
ren among their own kind."

Sterling Fund Guest 
To Lead Discussions 

By Kurt Rosen 

The newly organized Dave Ster- 
ling Fund will bring the eminent 
Harvard theologian, Paul Tillich 
to Williams as Its first annual 
guest this weekend. 

Professor Tillich will lead an In- 
formal discussion Friday in the 
Rathskeller on religion and mod- 
ern art. Friday evening he will be 
at Reverend Cole's weekly open- 
house. Saturday morning he will 
participate in Religion 8 and Re- 
ligion 4 classes. At 4 p.m., Profes- 
sor Tillich will discuss religion and 
contemporary literature in Mather 

Interested students will have an 
opportunity to hear and meet Pro- 
fessor Tillich. They are welcome to 
bring dates to any of these infor- 
mal sessions. 

The fund was started in mem- 
ory of Dave Sterling '55, by his 
friends and classmates. He won 
almost every major honor at Wil- 
liams. For two years he was elect- 
ed president of his class; he was 
a junior advisor. Junior Phi Bete, 
member of Gargoyle and a varsity 
football player. Sterling was sche- 
duled to be the commencement 
student speaker until he was 
stricken with leukemia during final 
exams in June of his senior year. 

Sterling heard the commence- 
ment exercises in a hospital bed 
by telephone. While in the hospi- 
tal he received his diploma and 
the Canby athletic award. Cour- 
ageously fighting his affliction, he 
even returned to see a Williams 
football game after a partial re- 
covery. Shortly afterwards he

Professor Tillich Is 
Theologian, Lecturer 

Professor Tillich was bom and 
raised in Germany. He came to 
the United States in 1933 after 
Hitler dismissed him from his post 
at Frankfort University. Profes- 
sor Tillich first went to Union 
Theological Seminary and then to 
Harvard where he became one of 
the university's four "roving" pro- 
fessors. This position, one of the 
highest honors Harvard can be- 
stow, permits a Professor to lecture 
and travel as he sees fit. 

Professor Tillich is an authority 
in many other fields besides the- 
ology. A respected writer, his most 
recent book is "Dynamics of 
Faith". Last June, "Time" maga- 
zine described him as "the one 
American intellectual regarded by 
all others with something ap- 
proaching awe." 

Two Alumni Die 
In North Adams 
Hospital Recently 

Two persons familiar to many 
Williams alumni died during 
Spring vacation. 

Albert Victor Osterhout '06, for- 
mer graduate manager of athletics 
and assistant alumni secretary, 
died April 3 in the North Adams 
hospital. Willis Isbister Milham 
'94, Field Memorial Professor of 
Astronomy Emeritus whose 47- 
year tenure at Williams is second 
only to that of Williams' famed 
president Mark Hopkins, died 
March 23rd in the North Adams 

Mr. Osterhout, a Phi Gam, join- 
ed the college administration in 
1935 as secretary of the Student 
Aid Committee and adviser of un- 
dergraduate activities. He had al- 
so headed the first organized Stu- 
dent Placement Bureau. He re- 
tired in 1949. He was secretary of 
his class for 55 consecutive years, 
a record at Williams. 

Mr, Milham, a Phi Bete and sa- 
lutatorian of his class, wrote sev- 
eral books including one on mete- 
orology which was at one time the 
only textbook on the subject used 
in American colleges. Also an ex- 
pert on clocks, he collected over 
130 rare timepieces and was vice- 
president of the National Associa- 
tion of Watch and Clock collectors.

The Fund was initiated last year 
as part of the sesquicentennial of 
the Haystack Prayer Meeting to 
bring a foreign student to be edu- 
cated in this country. Sophomore 
Warner Kim of South Korea is 
the first student under the plan. 
Next year the Chapel hopes to 
bring over a Hungarian student. 

As was done last year, the com- 
mittee is seeking a doUar from 
every student. Last year's drive 
netted $900 from 85 per cent of 
the student body. "To be success- 
ful the drive needs the full sup- 
port of the entire student body," 
McKean said. 

CC Committee Selects 
New Junior Advisers 

335 Students Receive 
Midsemester Warnings 

The office of the dean presented 
502 academic warnings to 335 stu- 
dents on their return from spring 

The class of 1960 received the 
most severe reprimand as 127 men. 
compiled a total of 207 warnings, 
this being 45 per cent of the class. 
The freshmen received a total of 
155 D and 45 E warnings. 

The sophomores, with HI D's 
and 36 E's received 152 warnings, 
98 men being warned. Sixty-three 
juniors received 88 warnings, 60 
of them D's and 24 E's. 

The seniors compiled the best 

academic record with 55 warnings 
being distributed among 55 men. 
The class of '57 received 37 D's 
and 11 E's. 

The sophomores made the great- 
est improvement in the percentage 
warned. Only 35.2 per cent were 
warned this spring as opposed to 
47.3 per cent in November. The 
juniors chopped 11.5 percentage 
points off their fall record with 
only 35.2 per cent of the class be- 
ing warned this spring. 

The warnings were reported by 
the faculty to the registrar March

pital is the second such facility 
placed in the area recently. The 
first was in Adams. 

Valued at over $100,000, the sup- 
plies and equipment which were 
received include 200 beds, two 
completely equipped operating 
rooms, one X-ray room, two gen- 
erators capable of producing e- 
nough power to run the entire hos- 
pital, blankets and medical sup- 
pUes. The latter are being stored 
in student union refrigeration 

Mr. Wade W. Rudman, director 
of Civil Defense for Williamstown, 
noted that the Student Union 
would be the hospital while ten- 
tative plans would make the re- 
maining college buildings into fa- 
cilities "probably for housing e- 
vacuees or anything they are 
suited for." Dr. Urmy, college phy- 
sician, as head of the Williams- 
town medical unit of the Civil 
Defense agency, would be in charge 
of the hospital. The staff would 
be made up of all available per- 
sonnel that could be secured. 

Mr. Rudman noted that the 
Williamstown vicinity would prob- 
ably be used by evacuees from 
Boston-Springfield- Worcester ar- 
eas. To help cope with the evacu- 
ees, Williamstown already has a 
first aid field station in storage 
in the public schools and supplies 
and equipment for training first 
aid units. The local unit presently 
has some 250 volunteer members.

A grant of $5200 received re- 
cently by the college from the 
First National City Bank of New 
York will be used for faculty sal-

James P. Baxter 3rd. 

The grant is part of a plan for 
corporate giving inaugurated by 
the Bank In January. A sum of 
$400 is given to a college every 
year for each graduate of that 
college who has been in the 
Bank's employ for five or more

Discussion centered primarily a-

Educational Progress 

The arrival ol Paul Tillicli liort" I'riday, un- 
der the auspices of the Dave SterJiiif; Memorial 
Fund, marks a step forward in the Williams ed- 
ucational system. 

It represents an o|)|K)rtunity for students to 
talk on an informal basis for se\eral clays with a 
fii^ure whose sij^nificance to the modern world 
cannot be measured. This type of arrangement is 
far superior to the usual situation in which a lec- 
turer comes for a single evening, e.\i3ounds for- 
mally, answers a few questions and leaves all too 

If the coming weekend proves successful, the 
Record would make the following suggestions: 
the Lecture Committee should use its substantial 
annual budget to pay fewer lecturers to come to 
Williamstown for longer periods of tinie. l'\)r ex- 
ample it would have been most enlightening had 
E. E. Cummings been contracted to stay for a few 
days rather than one sh(jrt evening. 

Secondly, the College should attempt to 
supplement the pioneer work of the Sterling 
Fund (a wholly independent enterprise) by 
seeking funds to support a "visiting professors" 
]5rogram. Under this system perhaps two pro- 
minent men could be brought to Williams an- 
nually for two-week |5eriods. This would be simi- 
lar to the jDresent arrangement between Amherst 
and Robert Frost. 

Informality is the most productive atmos- 
phere for coinmnnication. If the work of the 
Sterling Fund is supplemented by College and 
Lecture Committee efforts, students would have 
the valuable ojijiortunity to communicate mean- 
ingfully with prominent men in many fields.

A Distinction 

Ever since the Delta Phi case raised the issue 
of discrimination on this campus, the Record 
has received a steady stream of letters on tliis 

These letters, not all of which were for pub- 
lication, indicate that one vital disthiction should 
be made here: the issues e)f "discrimination" and 
"Total Opportunity," while interrelated, are not 
the same thing. Discrimination, as used by the 
Phillips Committee, means when factors other 
than personal qualifications affect a student's 
opportunity for fraternity membership. Total Op- 
portunity is when every student who wants to 
join a house, has the opportunity to do so.

by Dick Daois 

There are two different ajiproaches in the 
selection of Junior Advisers. 

The first method— you might call it tlie 
"idealistic" way is to choose eacli Junior Advi- 
ser excludively on his individual merits and 
qualifications tor die specific job of counseling 
freshmen, without regard for the social system 
of tlie college. 

The second or "practical" method involves 
a recognition of tlie campus- wide effects of J. A 
selections, and aims at a measure of potential 
rushing ec|uality among Uie houses. 

liie junior Adviser Selection Committee, 
it seems, nas tried to effect a compromise be- 
tween diese two ap|3roaches. But it lias failed to 
compromise on tlie issue most demanding of 
compromise, ilic "idealistic" side concedes that 
no fraternity should be allowed more than jour 
J.A.s. Tills, seeing tliat tliere are only tliirty open- 
ings and fifteen liouses, is only fail'. But there is 
obviously no provision for every house having 
at leant one Junior Adviser. 

The at least one requirement, it seems to me, 
is a far more needy concession to tlie "practical" 
approach than die no more than four stipulation. 
It is erroneous to believe diat a sophomore del- 
egation at a Williams College fraternity does not 
have at least one member fit to serve as a Jimior 
Adviser; and in tliis era of deferred rushing and 
increased stratification, the absence of a repre- 
sentative on tiie freshman quad can start the 
reverse snowball" effect tliat leads to a house's 
extinction from the campus. Let us hope next 
year s committee recognizes tliis. 

Letters To The Editor 

The Record reminds its readers tliat, while it 
am withhold publication of a writer's name, it 
cannot print any letter to which the writers 
name is not attached. The Record also must re- 
serve the right to condense any letter to jit 
necessary space requirements. 

To The Recoiu): 

1 think it is too bad tliat the accidents of 
your publishing schedule should have required 
tiiat the recent production of Ibsen's The Wild 
Duck be previewed on the basis of a dress re- 
hearsal (not diat the preview was in any way 
damaging). But I have just come from the Fri- 
day night performance, and I should like to put 
on the record a flat statement that I have never 
seen such a beautiful production on the stage 
of the AMT in my 11 years at Williams. And I 
have seen them all. 

John Drew O'Neill 

To The Record: 

During the four years preceding June, 1951, 
I read with amusement, resentment and disin- 
terest—all in turn— tlie comments made by alum- 
ni of Williams through the "letter to the editor" 
medium. Your March 6 issue, however, prompts 
me to expose my own views to the same reac- 
tion on the ])art of the current student body. 

Your editorial on discrimination lands with 
both feet st|uare on the midriff of the fraternity 
system— but there is considerable more involved 
in this question of brotherhood, e(|uality, et al. 

In the first place, I would strongly <|uestion 
your foundation for the remark, "this school has 
long suffered from a poor reputation resulting 
from this type of activity." To the contrary I 
think the VVilliams College reputation in evenj 
part of the country is excellent, and while we 
nave our difficulties in many respects, the na- 
tion has not yet focused the shadow of a Con- 
gressional Investigating Committee " 'neath the 
shadow of the hills". 

You continue with, "Currently, a determin- 
ed and yet realistic drive is being initiated to a- 
bolish cliscrimination here." I do wonder if the 
undergraduate body can realize that there is 
truly little discrimination on the Williams cam- 
]3us today— within or without the fraternity sys- 
tem? If President Baxter did start the move by 
appointing a three-man Trustee committee, I am 
truly surprised for the impression formed by 
many alumni is tliat there are many, many vital 
]irolilems confronting Williams the solution to 
which are literally prerequisites to the contin- 
uation of the school and its good works. I can- 
not—in whole or in part— buy the reasoning 
which places this question of discrimination in 
the front rank of "vital problems". 

Perhaps there are alumni who "will resent 
these moves", although I have not met many 
who "resent" any attempt to improve Williams. 
I have met many who resent the pounding of 
a few on the collective consciences of many to 
the effect that Williams is being degraded in 
the eyes of all the country because of a system 
which has helped the College exist through the 
years— a system much more fair, much less dis-

Letters To The Editor 

To The Recoiuj: 

1 am profoundly disturbed by the emphasis that is still being 
placed on discrimination. Even "democratic processes" can he 
carried too far. 

If you will consult your Webster, you will find there are 
several meanings of the grossly-abused word "diserimination"; not 
die least of these is "the faculty of nicely distinguishing, acute 
diseernnient". The definition implies the right, the jnivilege, and 
the obligation of the individual to exercise intellij^eiit selection. 
.Most exjieeially is diis true in matters affecting ones personal life 
and therefore intimate friendshijis. The fraternity concept is 
based s(|uarely upon friendship; and if it is true that it takes all 
kinds to make a world, it is also irrefutable tliat birds of a feather 
flock together. Friendshiiis are not to he had by fiat or coercion, 
nor, conversely, can they be denietl. Whatever restrictive steps 
may be taken, natural and unalterable urges will somehow find 

The question dian is not whether fraternities are guilty 
of discrimination, which in the sense expressed above is implicit 
in the very fact of their existence, but instead whether frater- 
nities still fulfill the useful and desirable functions to which they 
were originally dedicated. Do they represent groups of young men 
associated together in friendshiji, in concern for one anothers well- 
being and achievements, and by mutual interests bodi social and 
intellectual? Or have they grown so large through economic nec- 
essity and the dictates of the college administration that they are 
no more than Garfield Clubs garnished with Greek? 

If the former is true, then fraternities still represent a pri- 
mary motivation that will not be denied, and tlicy should be left 
alone. If the latter, tlien they should be abolished as travesties 
upon the ideals diat created diem. With a clear field left by the 
removal of the fraternity system, freedom to discriminateli/ select 
will inevitably bring forth a rededication of the principles of friend 
ship to the honor of Williams and of jiersonal liberties. 

Alexander Beach, 1929 

To The Record: 

I am in receipt of the free copy of the Williams Record of 
March 6, 19.37, which you sent me, an alumnus of Williams. 

I do not mean to look a gift horse in die mouth but I do 
wonder why, after some 40 years as an alumnus, I now merit a 
free copy of the Williams Record. After reading the paper's lead- 
ing article entitled, "Groups Begin Hunt For Discrimination", and 
your editorial, "Discrimination, Yes or No"— this gift horse takes 
on the aspect of a Trojan Horse, loaded witli extreme liberal i- 
deas, with which to overcome alumni resistance to such a philoso- 

As a Williams alumnus, the writer is amazed at statements 
in these two articles, such as "The biggest issue on the campu.s 
is the problem of discrimination within Williams fraternities,"— 
"school has long suffered from this type of activity", "Problem is 
still a powerful is subtle force on the campus", "currently a deter- 
mined yet realistic drive is being initiated to abolish discrimina- 
tion," "investigating bodies," "probes," "secret sessions," "the fact 
that it (discrimination) does (exist) degrades Williams College 
and the liberal views for which it stands.' 

These are strange sounding statements coming out of Wil- 
liams College to this alumnus and he ponders over what great en- 
lightenment these "investigating groups" of the present student 
body have found, that excaped the understanding and vision of 
former Williams students and alumni over the past 100 years. 

What is so vile in Williams College life that causes certain 
members of the present student body to resort to "hunts", "investi- 
gating bodies ', "Probes", "secret sessions" and "determined drives"? 

VVlicn one recalls that during a recent Congressional investi- 
gation of communistie influences in America, certain liberal groups 
raised a great hue and cry about so called witch hunts, investi- 
gations, probes and secret sessions; one wonders just what is 
going on presently at Williams and what persons and groups are 
back of it. 

Could it be that these same groups would even like to exer- 
cise thought control when you state in your editorial, "the obsta- 
cles these groups are fighting are not constitutional prohibitive 
clauses, but rather tacitly-understood gentlemen's agreements 
with nationals and alumni". 

If each student should have "an equal opportunity for mem- 
bership in each fraternity," why not make a clean sweep with 
this philosophy. Why not make every senior a member of Gargoyle 
and also make every student equal in learning by inviting all 
students to be members of Phi Beta Kappa! 

One impression that I had of Williams, in coming out of a 
small community in the middle west, was the galaxy of sons of 
blue-blood New England families, who were students at Williams. 
Such conditions could lead to giving students, coming from small 
out-of-the-way places an inferiority complex. To correct this 
social unbalance, why not have all students, upon entering Wil- 
liams, lay aside their family names, and be designated by symbols. 
For instance, members of the class of 1958 would be W58-1, W58-2; 
class of 19.59, W59-1, W59-2; etc. Perhaps the current professors 
would also prefer to adopt this new liberal elimination of dis- 
crimination while at Williams, and if so, they could be designated 
as WP-1, WP-2, etc. 

Then we come to the Williams College color of Royal Purple. 
Although it has been a part and parcel of Williams College life 
and history, still the Royal Purple derives its name from the fact 
that, at one time, only rulers and imjierialists could wear it. So 
in this hunt for liberalism through investigating and probing for 
discrimination, it might fit in with this liberal scheme to discard 
this insignia of rulers and imperialists for one of the more modern 
colors, which has been adopted by some self-nominated groups 
of real pure liberals. And so, we would arrive at that perfect con- 
dition of liberalism at Williams, where no liberal group need start 
"investigations", "hunts", "probes", "secret sessions" or thought 
control, as all students would be non-discriminatory in name, 
would all belong to all societies and would have a college emblem 
that does not smack of imperialism but rather of so-called pure

criminatory, much less harsh than the chmate into which an un- 
dergraduate moves upon being graduated. 

Why are we attempting to smooth tlie face of Williams as 
one would fresh plaster.-' Why are those who stand tall reduced 
and Uiose who fall short given mounting platforms on which they 
are encouraged to sjieiid their imdergraduate days. After grad- 
uation, you know, the cruel world might just reclaim that borrow- 
ed boost- and those; who stand on artificial ground will be ill- 
equipped to pull themselves up— or anywluuel 

in short, let's stoj) trying to level each undergraduate-the 
world isn't that way and we do the undergraduate a real dis- 
service by implying it to he so. 

Selectivity is part of our lives, and it will remain important 
to us until America gives up the ghost to one or anotlier of the 
"isms". Is that wliat the current Williams undergraduate seeks'-^ 
Does he wish to sign away bis right to be a little better than the 
next fellow? 

As things stand now, I will not be among the alumni you 
"fervently hope . . . will boldly step forward and support these 
liberal steps." 1 will not i)e there l)ceause I'm sick to death of lib- 
eralism per se. When Williams College again represents standards 
of individual freedom instead of a line drawn across society 
on which all of us must stand, I'll be back in the ranks- with 
Wallet, for Mr. Foehl's benefit. 

Discrimination? Obviously not. But neither will I sacrifice 
my right, or my neighbor's right to live, work, play or associate 
as he will. I may not discriminate, but 1 shall always reserve the 
right to do so. 

You cannot legislate human rights nor by decree establish them. 
Let's not just change the rules of the game-let's try and change 
the minds of those playing.

Coach Chaffee Remains In Top Physical Condition 
After 20 Years As Eph Mentor In Three Sports 

By Ben Schenck 

Thirty-four years ago Clarence 
C. Chaffee was a three letterman 
at Brown University. Today, as 
head coach of three sports at 
Williams, the only reason he 
couldn't win three more letters is 
a noticeable lack of vegetation on 
the top of his head. 

Besides keeping in top physical 
condition, Chaffee has compiled a 
fabulous coaching record. Thirty- 
eight times has he taken varsity 
teams into Little Three competi- 
tion, and twenty-one times have 

coach. He took over as frosh soccer 
coach, and led the varsity tennis 
and squash teams. 

In 1942 Chaffee left WiUlams 
temporarily to become a major in 
the special services division (re- 
creation and entertainment) of the 
Air Forces. At the close of the war 
he returned to his old job. Except 
for a brief period as acting basket- 
ball coach, his status was changed 
only by an appointment as varsity 
soccer coach in 1949. 

If all goes as hoped, the tennis 
team will present Chaffee with his 
two hundredth victory in all the 
varsity sports he has coached on 
April 29 against North Carolina. 
Against the best teams in New

142 games and tied 2. 

Although Chaffee has had few 
troubles since he arrived in Wil- 
liamstown, it seems that most of 
them come in soccer. His teams 
have compiled a respectable 28-34 
record in eight years, but they 
have only won one Little Three 
championship. He observes that 
every Amherst-Williams game ex- 
cept one since 1949 has been de- 
cided by either a 2-1 or a 1-0 score. 
Wesleyan scores have been equally 
close, although higher. 

Chaffee fondly remembers three 
soccer all-Americans he has coach- 
ed; Paul Quinn, Jim Davie and 
Tom Lincoln. He called Quinn "the 
finest ball-handler I've ever had". 
He added that all three were "ti-

Chaffee started his athletic ca- 
reer at Evander Childs High School 
in New York City, playing soccer, 
basketball, tennis, baseball and 
swimming. At Brown he decided 
that he should cut down to only 
three sports: football, basketball 
and tennis. Among other honors, 
he served as basketball captain 
during his senior year. 

Athletic Director 

After graduation he went into 
business. But nine years of this 
showed him that his fli'st love was

his position as acting director of 
athletics at Riverdale earned him 
an appointment as a Williams

Coach Clarence Chaffee's ten- 
nis team completed their annual 
spring tour with a successful three 
and three record in spite of limited 
pre-season play. 

The team posted victories over 
William and Mary 5-4, Virginia 6- 
3, and North Carolina 5)5-3)2, wliile 
losing to North Carolina 4-5, 
Country Club of Virginia 4-7 and 
to a highly-touted Navy squad 3-5. 

Coach Chaffee was very pleased 
with tire trip, especially with the 
first three matches but said there 
was a lot of work to be done with 
the doubles teams. He said that the 
return of Bob Kingsbury to the 
team should give added strength. 

Karl Hirshman, Tom Shulman 
and Captain Sam Eells were par- 
ticularly impressive on the tour 
and are counted on to bolster the 
squad during the regular season 
starting April 23. 

Led by the singles play of Tom 
Shulman and Sam EeUs the squad 
pulled an upset victory over North 
Carolina March 27. Both men 
won their matches in two sets, as 
did Mel Searls. Dave Leonard won 
in three sets to round out the sin- 

gles victories. 

In the doubles Joe Turner and 
Ernie Fleishman won in straight 
sets while Hirshman and Leon-

their opponents and were tied at 
six-all in the final set when the

by Sandt/ Murrai/ 

With Bill Tuach tuiuiiijf in the toj) performance, 14 Williams 
jrolfcrs tuned up their games on Bermuda's windswept courses 
diuinj^ Spring Vacation. 

In the 72-hole Bermuda Golf Association Tournament staged 
March 26 and 27 at the Riddles Bay Golf and Country Club and 
March 28 and 29 at the Belmont Manor Golf Club, Tuach number 
three man on last year's freshman ' 

team, turned In a gross score of 314 
to place fifth in the 40-man field. 

The Williams Clubbers also cap-

327; 13. John Boyd and Chuck 
Smith, 333. Jim Fisher finished 
17th with 346 and Bob Guyett took 
19th in 356. 

The Ephmen captured their 
share of trophies as Tuach, with 
a 77, had the low gross for the 
first 18 at Belmont with Julius 
and Johnson shooting 76's for low 
gross on the last day of the tour- 
nament. Freshman Mike Beemer 
had the low gross for 36 holes at 
Belmont, carding a 161.

after 54 holes with 238's but faded 
on the last day. At this point 
freshman Harry Love with an 18- 
hole handicap of 8 strokes had 
the low net score with 220 later 
dropping to 6th with 295. Tuach 
also topped the Ephmen in total 
net score finishing 5th with 294 
for the 72 holes. 

The Ephs finished out their va- 
cation golfing March 31 with a 10- 
8 loss to the Mid-Ocean Golf Club 
on their oceanside course, reput- 
edly the fourth best in the world. 
The Mid-Ocean Club was led by 
George Wardman who also won 
the Bermuda Golf Association 
tournament with a gross score of

lar season on April 27th against

Koster Places 4th 
In NCAA Wrestling 

Bob Koster, undefeated in dual 
meet competition in four years 
here, placed fourth in the 157- 
pound class in the National Col- 
legiate Athletic Association wrest- 
ling championship in Pittsburgh 
over spring vacation. 

In the first and second rounds, 
he beat the Pacific coast champ- 
ion and the Eastern Intercolle- 
giate champion who was seeded 
first. He lost to Oklahoma A & M's 
Ed Blubaugh who finally went on 
to win the championship. Koster

Stickmen Lose 
Southern Games 

The Eph lacrosse team recently 
completed their annual spring 
southern trip. During the course 
of their journey, the Williams team 
lost two games. 

The team first traveled to Lex- 
ington, Virginia March 27, where 
they trained with the Washington 
and Lee team. After two days of 
workouts and scrimmages, they 
lost to the strong W & L team, 12- 
4. Williams goalie Jock Jankey had 
22 saves in the losing effort, and 
Dave Andrew had a goal and sev- 
eral assists for the Ephs. 

The Ephs then traveled to Duke 
University, where they practiced 
for two days. After having had 
morning and afternoon workouts, 
the team played their only game 
with the Blue Devils on the third 
day. Williams lost to Duke 6-2, 
with Bill Weaver standing out in 
the losing effort. 

Successful For Practice 

Co-captain Perrott pointed out 
that the trip was "successful as 
far as getting practice," and that 
Williams' defeat of the University 
of Massachusetts last Saturday by 
an 8-1 score is evidence of trip's 
success. Perrott also said that Jim 
Smith's injury on the first day 
of the trip had definitely affected 
the team's strength. 

Perrott added that the team 
had not expected to do too well 
against the southern teams, who 
have been practicing for a month, 
already, and that "things look 
pretty good right now" for the 

The team has its first game of 
its 8-game schedule on April 23 at 
Union. They will play four games 
at Williams this year, including 
the Tufts, Middlebury, Yale, and 
Amherst games.

By Chuck Dunkel 

Having compiled a 1-5 record 
on the southern trip, Coach Bob- 
by Coombs' baseball team is hard 
at work in preparation for the op- 
ening game of the regular season 
against AIC on April 20. 

After both scheduled games 
with Elon College were rained out, 
the Ephmen opened the exhibi- 
tion season with a doubleheader 
against Pfeiffer College in Messen- 
heimer, N. C, on March 27. 

In the opener, Williams scored 
first, as co-captain Dick Fearon 
blasted the first pitch of the sec- 
ond inning for a long home run. 
The Ephs then exploded with four 
runs in the third inning to take 
a 5-0 lead. 

Pfeiffer Ties Score 

However, Pfeiffer came back 
with five runs in the fifth inning 
to tie the score, after Don McLean 
had pitched hitless ball for four 
irmings. Tlie southerners then 
scored in the seventh to take a 
6-5 decision. Bob McAlaine paced 
the Eph attack with three doubles. 

In the nightcap, Pfeiffer scored 
six runs in the second inning and 
coasted to an 8-4 victory. Fearon 
led the hitters with 2 for 4 while 
Bob Newey and Bob Rediske 
handled the pitching. 

The next day the Ephs met 
Guilford College in Greensboro, 
N. C, and dropped a 7-5 verdict, 
as the Carolinians rallied for five 
runs in the eighth. 

Dick Flood, Ned Dever, and 
Crawford Blagden shared the 
pitching, with Marv Weinstein col- 
lecting two hits. 

Guilford Wins Again 

Guilford again defeated the Pur- 
ple the following day, 4-1, in spite 

of fine pitching by Newey and 
Rediske. Jim Stevens, Dick Shee- 
han, and Weinstein each had two 


The Ephs then joui'neyed to Vir- 
ginia, where they gathered the only 
victory of the trip by blasting Uni- 
versity of Richmond 10-4. Mc- 
Lean and Blagden combined to 
gain credit for the win. 

Williams concluded the trip on 
April 1 by dropping a close 3-1 
game to Princeton at Princeton, 
N. J. Newey and Flood held the Ti- 
gers to six hits, but the Ephmen 
could score only in the seventh, 
when Bob Iverson blasted a triple. 
Fearon collected a double and 
single to boost his trip average to

Freshmen To Support 
Bowdoin Plan By Tax 

The Bowdoin Plan tax will be 
collected from freshmen Thurs- 
day in a series of special meetings, 
College Council Treasurer Don 
Campbell '60, announced today. 

The tax, which has been met in 
full since 1948, helps finance the 
education of foreign students. One 
such student, Tao Ho '60, went to 
high school in Hong Kong. 

There, he states, it is very diffi- 
cult to obtain an advanced edu- 
cation; the only university is /ery 
expensive, and the government 

makes no provisions for scholar- 
ships. A student there planning to 
attend college in the U. S. must 
place a nearly impossible cash 
deposit with the government. 

The Plan helps the carefully se- 
lected student overcome such ob- 
stacles. The 1957 fund drive is 
under the direction of Don Camp- 
bell and Art Sherwood. Other 
freshmen on the committee in- 
clude Harvey Brickley, Kirk White, 
Mike Mead, Ben Schenck, and 
John Woodruff. 

Sterling Fund . . . 

suffered a fatal relapse. 

Friends Start Fund 

Friends and classmates of Dave 
Sterling wanted to remember him 
in a way that he, himself, might 
have wanted. At Williams he had 
enjoyed informal discussions with 
outstanding men. Since he was in- 
terested in religion, philosophy, po- 
litical science, history and psy- 
chology, Dave's friends decided to 
bring a man from one of these 
fields each year. 

A student committee aided by 
several faculty members will in- 
vite an outstanding intellect an- 
nually for a few days. Since he was 
especially admired by Sterling, the 
committee chose Paul TiUich as 
its first guest. 

New College Switchboard Provides More Efficient Phone Service 

The new College switchboard, 
which went into operation March 
28, has given Williams a faster 
and more efficient phone system, 
stated Director of Buildings and 
Grounds Peter Welanetz. 

All campus calls now will be 
filtered through a central switch- 
board operating on a single col- 

lege number, 1480. Dormitories and 
fraternities cannot be reached 
through the college number, as 
their inclusion would have been 
too costly. 

An internal dial system will 
speed up communication between 
college offices, and off-campus 
calls can now be filtered through 

the switchboard. 

Chief operator of the new 
switchboard is Miss Rose Baroni 
who is assisted by Miss Mary 
Thorpe, fiance of a Williams stu- 
dent. These operators will be on 
duty until four In the afternoon, 
when College watchmen and stu- 
dent labor will take over. 

French Play . . . 

guages, this play is an interde- 
partmental production. The music 
is being handled by Tom Griswold 
of the music department and the 
scenery is under the direction of 
art instructor Lee Hii'sche. 

All the scenery has been built 
and designed by Mr. Hirsche, who 
also designed the posters advertis- 
ing the play. An artist, Hirsche 
currently has a collection of his 
paintings on exhibit in Bronx- 
ville, N. Y. 

The theme of the play Itself 
is described by Savacool as "a 
town affected by a disease." 

Mrs. Caroline Murphy, wife of 
History instructor Orville Murphy, 
takes the role of Isabelle, while 
Peter Rose '57, plays the mayor 
and Tom Edson '57, the druggist. 
Bruno Qulnson '58, is the inspec- 
tor, Bernard Lanvln '58, the con-

Once there was a sword with a poet attached named Cyrano (the man, not the 
Bword). Cyrano was equally famous for being handy with the cutlery and having 
a real honker of a nose. This proboscis wsis a real liability . . . not only to Cyrano, 
but to the bumpkins who had the misfortiine to make fun of it. They always 
wound up with an extremely low body temperature. 

In the midst of aU this swashbuckling, Cyrano fell for a chick named Hoxanne, 
whose father ran one of the fancier bistros in town. The clinker in the deck 
was that Roxanne hankered after another cat . . . who made the vmbeUevable 
(and hitherto fatal) error of telling Cyrano "You, sir, have a rather large nosel" 

Well, Cyrano couldn't skewer this chucklehead— Roxanne's old man would cut 
ofiF his Budweiser credit card. So — heeding that old chestnut "If you can't fight 
•em . . . join 'em," Cyrano did a ghost-writing job on some love poems— real 
mushy stuff— enabling Roxanne's beau to win her. Afterward, mothballing his 
king-size steak knife, Cyrano turned his poetic talents to the best use he could 
think of: writing lyrics for "Where There's Life . . . There's Bud."

Will neighboring Petersbuig, N. Y. become America's next

MacPadyen theorized that the

shredded off the drill bits, which 
are made of a tungsten alloy. He 
noted that the drillers are not pro- 
fessional geologists. 

Telephone Interview 

In a telephone interview with 
the Williams RECORD Mrs. Duane 
Jones, wife of the owner of the 
land where the driUing has been 
undertaken, reports that she and 
her husband were "pleased but not 
overexcited" by the discovery. 

"We will wait and see what we

which will be given April 18 at

Scott Selected New SAC President; 
Program Changes To Be Instituted 

In a recent election, Jim Scott '58 was chosen to head next 
year's Student Activities Council. Other newly elected officers 
are Roger Headrick '58, secretary, Dick Lombard '58, treasurer, 
and Jack Talmadge '58, Don Morse '58 and Bill Dudley '58, mem- 
bers of the executive committee. 

Commenting on next year's SAC, Scott said a student-fac- 
ulty committee on SAC problems will present its report in a few 

weeks. Although he declined to 
elaborate on the report, he des- 
cribed the changes it will insti- 
tute as "sweeping". 

Another reform in the program 
is the holding of budget hearings 
by the S. A. C. in the spring. This 
is the result of the delay caused 
by last year's dispute in the Col- 
lege Council over one item in the 
budget. Due to this delay several 
organizations were faced with defi- 
cit financing during the first part 
of the year. 

One innovation already Inau- 
gurated by the new SAC is calling 
for proposed budgets for next year 
from all member organizations to 
be submitted within two weeks. 
This will enable the SAC to inves- 
tigate the recipients of their out- 
lays more thoroughly. 

One of the major problems cur- 
rently facing the SAC is the plight 
of the Williams yearbook, the 
"Gulielmensian". (See page 4 of 
today's RECORD for pertinent in- 
formation regarding the "Gul" 

Scott praised the retiring offi- 
cers, Sandy McOmber '57, presi- 
dent, Dave Connolly '57, secretary, 
and Ted Graham '57, treasurer, as 
"the first to realize that changes 
were necessary." They were re- 
sponsible for the fonnation of the 
student-faculty committee.

UMass Head Seeks 
Full Year Sessions 

In an effort to meet the ever- 
increasing demand for college ad- 
mission. University of Massachu- 
setts President Mather has pro- 
posed a twelve-month session for 
his school in 1958. The new plan 
would facilitate a 25 per cent in- 
crease in freshman enrollment. 


SC Votes To Accept 
Communications Plan 

By a 9 to 5 vote, the Social Council Tuesday okayed the Gar- 
goyle |)lan for the installation of an all-college FM communication 

As a su]jplement to tliis system, tlie SC unanimously approved 
a |)lan to provide mail boxes in Hopkins Hall from which each 

Fraternity would pick up all im- 
portant notices and the adviser 
each day. Although sections re- 
garding the mail boxes and the 
FM communication system have 
been passed, the financing of the 
program must go to the CC for a 
final vote Monday night. 

The system consists of FM re- 
ceivers placed in each dining room 
in the college. Three to five min- 
ute broadcasts from WMS/WCFM 
covering the most important an- 
nouncements of the day would be 
scheduled each day during lunch. 
Tax Included 
SC president Lou Lustenberger 
emphasized that although five 
houses voted against the resolu- 
tion on the PM communication 
system, all five had agreed to in- 
stall the system in their respect- 
ive houses. 

Also included in the resolution 
was a plan for an all-college tax 
to finance the project. The cost 
will be approximately $35 per 
house for installation or a tax of 
$.50 per student. If finally approv- 
ed by the CC, the system will com- 
mence next fall. 

Voting against the resolution 
were Dave Sims, representing the 
A. D. house. Bob Vail from Zeta 
Psi, Brad Thayer representing the 
D. U.'s and Dave Plater represent- 
ing the Phi Delts. President Lus- 
tenberger of Beta Theta Pi also 
expressed disapproval of the re- 
solution. The plan was the result of 
Frank Dengel's earlier Gargoyle 

sident who opposed the Communi- 
cations Resolution.

Six Faculty Members To Publish Books 

by George Aid and Stuart Levy 

Williams College, alfSough not a "publishing college," has not 
fared badly in the realm of authorship. A Record survey finds 
ten per cent of the faculty presently engaged in prose endeavors, 
hicluded are Professor Schuman, Burns, Bastert, Allen, Bushnell, 
and Gaudino. 

Busiest man in the group is Woodrow Wilson Professor of 
(iovernment, and Soviet Union authority, Frederick L. Schuman. 
His latest book, Russia Since 1917, or, Four Decades of Soviet 
I'olitics, is scheduled to appear later this year. Schuman spent much 
of last year in the USSR, and this 500-page volume will use ma- 
terial gathered then to bring up to date and add new interpre- 
tations to its 1946 predecessor. 

For a good part of last year. The Lion and the Fox by Pro- 
fessor of Political Science James MacGregor Burns remained on the 
best-seller list. A second volume has already been begim, since 
the first book had to treat the war years of Roosevelt's life too 
briefly because of government secrecy. 

The first international Conference of American States is the 
subject for A Decade of Inter- Arrwrican Relations by Assistant 
Professor of History Russell H. Bastert. The book covers the period 
1881-1891 and features James G. Blaine, Maine politician. 

Selections from the works of essayists Joseph Addison and 

Richard Steele, which appeared originally in the journals Tathr 

BURNS and Spectator, will be edited by Morris Professor of Rhetoric Robert 

I. Allen. In his introduction, Professor Allen will discuss the part 

of the authors in the development of the essay, and the place of the

Williams Seniors 
Interview Reston, 
Acheson, Larson 

An investigation of problems in 
the Republican and Democratic 
parties was made by twelve Wil- 
liams seniors during spring vaca- 
tion during a three-day trip to 
Washington mider the auspices of 
the Mead Fund. 

Led by Robert L. Gaudino of the 
political science department, the 
visitors interviewed administration 
and congressional leaders. The 
theme of each interview was the 
difference between the two parties 
and the conflicting forces within 
each one. 

The trip centered on interviews 
with former Secretary of State 
Dean Acheson and Arthur Larson, 
who have written recent studies of 
the Democrats and Republicans, 
and on a conversation with "New 
York Times" correspondent James 

Larson, Acheson 

Mr. Ache.son, who argued in his 
book that the Democrats were a 
continuous party dating from the 
time of Jefferson, explained to the 
Williams seniors that the Demo- 
cratic Party of today is not the 
same party which he depicted In 
his book. 

Under the Elsenhower adminis- 
tration it is not a courageous party 
of ideas, because a party out of 
power cannot develop a forceful 
program, he said. Ideas are not

Against Noon Broadcasts 

The College Council will vote Monday night 
on an all-college ta.\ to finance an inter-fraternity 
lunehtinie broadcasting system. 

This system would entail )ilacing table-model 
FM sets in every fraternity dining room. Each day 
during lunch, |)ertinent ainiouncements would be 
broadcast from VVMS-WCFM to all students 
through both these house radios and the present 
public address systems in the Student Union 
freshman and upperelass dining halls (see page 

Now the CC must pass a student tax, expect- 
ed to range about 5()e per student, to institute 
the system ne.\t fall. The levy would be added to 
the SAC tax. Unfortunately, however, it appears 
th -t this plan is impractical for two reasons. 

First, it is asking a lot of house jiresidents 
to see tliat the sets are always in jierfect repair, 
in the |)roper ]5lace (and not on the third floor 
tuned to the ball-game ) , tinned on at noon, tun- 
ed to VVCFM and that everyone is quiet enough, 

let alone interested enough to listen all this 

every day in 1.5 houses over the span of a whole 
year! It is concei\able, but doubtful. Yet all this 
would have to be aeconi|5lished if the system is 
to prove wortli the students' money. 

Secondly, and more important, although .50 
cents is not a staggering amount, it is unreason- 
able to force non-affiliates and freshmen, who 
would receive the announcements anyway, to 
help to buy each fraternity a FM radio set. 

It thus becomes obvious that if noontime FM 
broadcasting is to be inaugurated here, the fra- 
ternities themselves should be made to supply 
their own radios. Not only is this the fairest 
way of financing the plan, but it is likely that 
houses which have a financial stake in the sys- 
tem will make more of an effort to derive bene- 
fit from it. 

Therefore, it would be in the best interests 
of the students if the CC were to vote down the 
all-college tax Monday. 

miliam Yacht Club 
Seeks Fiber Glass Fleet 

By Dave Skaff 

A drive has been instigated to revitalize the 
Williams Yacht Club. Pete Paullin '58, Commo- 
dore of the Club, and Yacht Club members are 
anxious to renew interest in sailing which has 
dwindled in the past few years here. 

The Yachters are currently limited to parti- 
cijDation in intercollegiate meets at other colleges. 
In the jiast the Williams group owned a fleet of 
now-obsolete sailing dinghies that were used on 
Lake Pontoosuc north of Pittsfield. 

Plans to revive interest in intercollegiate 
competition and pleasine sailing among Wil- 
liams students are included in this organization's 
program for the coming year. The present goal 
of the members is a broader program to include 
faculty and interested townspeople in club ac- 

Enlist Local Support 

By making the club a community organiza- 
tion, the club would be able to purchase a new 
fleet of fiberglass sailing diirghies that would 
be available to all local sailing enthusiasts join- 
ing the organization. The present membership 
cannot afford the costly outlay alone for the 

If the group can afford to purchase four 
craft, a student's father has (promised to donate 
a fifth to the fleet. The fiberglass dinghies which 
would be bought would require almost no up- 
keep. Another factor in favor of such craft under 
the present plans is that they might be used in 
the summer by interested local investors. 

Compete in Regattas 

In addition to planning for the future, the 
Yacht Club is slated to participate in several 
s|5ring regattas. At the present time anyone, re- 
gardless of racing experience, is eligible to race 
in dinghies borrowed from the Coast Guard 
Acadeiuy and M. I. T. 

Last Satmday the yachtmen began their 
sirring season with a 5th at Coast Guard in a 
cold, 18-20 mile per hour wind. Skippered by 
Paullin with a crew of three, the Eph boat held 
a safe third-place position in the series until a 
broken mainslieet block caused it to foul tlie 
Yale entry, resulting in a disqualification for

Letter To The Editor 

To The Record; 

Alinnni note from Washington— On March 
26 Seymoiu' Peck, a desk man on the Sunday 
magazine of the "New York Times," was con 
victed of contempt of Congress on each count 
of a five-coimt indictment charging him with 
willful refusal to answer questions of the Senate 
Internal Seciuity Subcommittee concerning the 
identity of persons with whom he had been as- 
sociated while a member of the Commimist 

Williams alumnus Telford Taylor, of New 
York, said that notice of appeal would be filed 
after a sentence had been im)50sed. Previously 
Taylor had been counsel for Harry Bridges, 
West Coast labor leader, who was accused of be- 
ing a Communist. 

Could this be the Williams influence? 

William Loeb 

Ed. Note: We \w\)o so. Not in the sense that 
you meant it, however, Mr. Loeb. The American 
Bar Association states that lawyers, out of a 
sense of duty and despite well-known anti-com- 
munist views, often have taken cases for persons 
accused of Communism. Yet, the Bar Associa- 
tion relates that these men "have been subjected 
to severe personal vilification and abuse" for 
these acts. As an "officer of the court" lawyers 
have professional obligations and even supposed 
communists have moral and legal rights to 
counsel for defense. Tims, Mr. Taylor, who dis- 
tinguished himself as Chief Prosecutor at the 
Nurenburg Nazi War Criminal trials, is helping 
to make American justice a practical reality by 
pleading this cause for an "unpopular" defen- 
dant. Such an act is, indeed, a credit to the "Wil- 
liams influence".

(Author of "Barefoot Boy With Cheek," tte.) 


Let us today turn our eager young minds to the in- 
spiring story of De Witt Clinton, one of the greatest 
figures in American history and — unaccountably — one 
of the most neglected. 

\\e ImM phomticMish lolzMm MmS 

De Witt Clinton (sometimes called Aaron Burr) first 
made himself known to fame in 1756 when Governor 
William Penn commissioned him to survey the forests of 
the Western Reserve. (One is inclined to wonder what in 
the world Governor Penn could have been thinking of, 
for De Witt Clinton was eighteen months old at the time.) 
However, the little chap did remarkably well. He surveyed 
as far west as Spokane, teaching phonetic English to 
more than twelve million Indians along the way, and then, 
tired but happy, he became Johnny Appleseed. 

Later, he became a keelboat and sailed home to enter 
politics. He tried to join the Greenback Party, but hia 
back wasn't green enough, so he joined the Whigs. 

He was offered the Whig nomination for the presi- 
dency, but declined with the celebrated statement: "If 
nominated I will not run; if elected I will not serve." 

But the Whigs only nudged each other and said, "That 
old fox, he's just playing hard to get." So they nominated 
him anyhow, and sure enough he did not run, but he was 
elected anyhow, and sure enough he did not serve. In 
fact, he was elected to a second term, which he also did 
not serve. However, only a few top Whiga knew there 
was nobody in the White House. The rest of the country 
thought that the President was confined to his room with 
a wrenched knee. For a while people sent "Get Well" 
cards, but soon everyone forgot and turned their atten- 
tion to important matters like opening the west, inventing 
the buffalo, and the Black Tom Explosion. 

After two terms as President, De Witt Clinton 
entered Yale and took up smoking. He tried several 
brands of cigarettes until he found the one brand that 
pleased him in every particular— Philip Morris, of corris! 

(You knew I was going to say that, didn't you ? Well, 
of course you did, especially if you are a Philip Morria 
smoker, for if you are, you know what a sweetheart of a 
smoke Philip Morria is - how full of rich, natural flavor, 
how natural and mellow, how long size and regular. And 
if you are not a Philip Morris smoker, you've got a treat 
coming. Light one soon. Light either end.) 

Upon graduation from Yale, De Witt Clinton became 
commissioner of baseball and smoked and loved Philip 
Morris Cigarettes for the of hia long and distin- 
gui.shed life, and when at last he was called to hia reward, 
his friend Old Hickory (Daniel Webster) stood up in the 
Senate and said, "How sad that De Witt Clinton must 
now be forever separated from his beloved Philip Morris !" 

"Nay!" cried Pitt, the Elder (Henry Clay), bounding 
to his feet. "We need not separate De Witt Clinton and 
Philip Morris. I know how to keep them together always !" 

And, sure enough, if you will look at the blue federal 
tax stamp on your pack of Philip Morria, gueaa whose 
picture you'll see. De Witt Clinton's ! That's whose !

Thirty-Fourth Season Opens Under Coach Baxter; 
Cites Outstanding Golf Course Factor In Wins; 
'How To Play' Articles Hold Pitfalls For Reader 

By Toby Smith 

In place of his age. varsity golf 
coach Dick Baxter gave the figure, 
fifty-five years on the links, as a 
yardstick. The colorful Scotchman 
begins his thirty-fourth season on 
the Williams scene looking forward 
to another Little Three crown and 
another good showing in the NCAA 

Coach Baxter was born and rais- 
ed in Melrose, Scotland, where he 
began his golfing and came over to 
Canada, beginning his profession- 
al career in 1914, He was wounded 
while serving as a Sargeant with 
the Canadian Army in the First 
World War and continued to play 
in Montreal and Quebec until 1924 
when he came to Williamstown. 

During the course of the conver- 
sation with Coach Baxter, he em- 
phasized the unique position Wil- 
liams holds in relation to its 
course as opposed to the other col- 
leges and universities of New Eng- 
land. Outside of Williams, only 
Yale and Dartmouth have courses 
directly connected with their plant. 
He rates these two courses below 
the Taconic. Approximately 200 
Williams undergraduates use the 
Taconic Golf Course regularly dur- 
ing the year. At other colleges. 
Coach Baxter cited the fact that, 
where boys have to play on a pri- 
vate course, their time is restricted 
as to the peak periods of traffic, 
particularly weekends. The restric- 
tion here comes only when the 
course is host to a national tour- 
nament. Coach Baxter mentioned 

Amiable Golf Coach DICK BAXTER who leads the Golf team in 
what he hopes will be a fine season. 

that the course had been com- 
mended by the U. S. G. A. and 
the N. C. A. A.'s have been 
scheduled for either 1958 or 1959 
on the Williams course. 

Comments on Masters 

Over his 34 years on the Wil- 
liams scene, Dick Baxter has a- 
massed one of the most impressive 
records of any team in the college. 
When asked to pick the best play- 
er, he chose Dick Chapmen '34. 
Chapman and a classmate advanc- 
ed in time to the finals and semi- 
finals of the Amateurs respectively. 
Commenting on this year he looks 
to Bill Chapman (no relation) and 
Hanse Halligan to lead the Ephs. 
One of the two matches that are 
in doubt is the opening match with 
Yale on the 27th away. In addi- 
tion, Coach Baxter also thinks the 

Stafford To Captain Squash Team; 
May Rank Number One Nationally 

team will be handicapped playing 
away at Harvard. 

While on the subject of current 
golf. Coach Baxter was a.sked his 
opinion on the recent articles by 
Ben Hogan in Sports Illustrated. 
While Hogan, along with Sam 
Snead are his favorites, he said 
about golf articles in general that 
they are often "contradictory and 
exaggerate some points, especially 
the one about keeping your left 
arm stiff". Coach Baxter said he 
looks for a relaxed golfer rather 
than one tensed up with formu- 
las. Mr. Baxter also endorsed the 
recent "cut" made of the Masters 
Golf Tournament because as he 
put it, "there are men playing in 
the tournament who are only out 
there because they won a big tour- 
nament fifteen years ago and con- 
sider it an honor to play", and a- 
bout Hogan and Middlecoff 
"what's fair for one is fair for 
another". He was unable to say 
anything about the television mo- 
tives mentioned in the press. 

Third ranked nationally, Ollie 
Stafford has been elected to lead 
the 1957-58 Eph squash squad. 

Stafford won seven of his ten 
matches this year, including de- 
feats over the number one players 
at Dartmouth, Navy, Princeton, 
Wesleyan, Trinity and Yale. 

The squash captain-elect has 
hopes for an even better season 
next year. With two of the thorns 
in his side removed by graduation 





179 St.ilf Kil. .MO- ^-(nl6 

this June, he hopes to reign su- 
preme in New England squash. 

One of his two losses in dual 
meet competition came at the 
hands of Amherst's Bub Dillon In 
the final match of the year. His 
other defeat was by Ben Hecksher 
of Harvard, ranked number one 
in the nation. The most impressive 
of Stafford's victories was his de- 
feat of M. I. T.'s Juan Hermosilla, 
formerly ranked number two in 
the country. As a sophomore, Staf- 
ford reached the semi-finals of the 
New Englands only to lose to Her- 

With the graduation of both 
Hecksher and Hermosilla, the way 
to a number one ranking looks 
open for Ollie, a junior this year. 
However, prospects may be dim- 
med by Harvard's Cal Place who 
defeated him in the quarter finals 
of the New England's this year.

Gul Brass Outlines Problems 

Ed. Note: Fur iiuimi i/cars the WillUiiiix iiearbook, the GuUelmensiim, has been in poor shape. 
The editorial and hiixiitess staffs of the Gul face viaiu/ problems which inmt be overcome if the 
yearbook is to conlimie here. Below, the editors and business manager outline just what these pro- 
blems are. 

By Tom Kellogg, Co-Editoi- By Paul Watson 

John Miller, Co-Editor Gul Business Manager 

Dick Davis, Managing Editor -j-^e ••Gullelmenslan," the year- 

A student recently remarked, "I book of Williams college for over 
never show my yearbook to anyone one hundred years, should be, by 

at home because if they don't know 
anything about Williams, they 
won't get a very good impression 
of it from the 'Gul'." Here in a 
nutshell is the "Gul's" plight: it 
is not a worthy mirror of the qual- 
ity of Williams College, as a year- 
book should be. 

But can the "Gul", under pre- 
sent student support, adequately 
rep.esent Williams? 

It has long been an interesting 
variation of the chicken-and-egg 
argument to debate "which comes 
first, a good edition or enthusias- 
tic student support?" As a matter 
of hard fact, student support must 
come first. 

Every new "Gul" board assumes 
its duties witli a genuine and 
forceful desire to put out a much 
better book. Colored photography, 
more sports, and more pages have 
been planned in recent years. The 
prospect of only half the student 
body buying the book caused the 
scrapping of these projects. 

But even more disheartening are 
the non-monetary problems. Stu- 
dents and often whole groups fail 
to show up for pictures, or show 
up late; they often come dressed 
beneath the dignity of even a re- 
form school's yearbook. Only a 
handful of seniors can be bothered 
to fill out the senior class poll, and 
some seniors are defiant in their 
non-cooperation regarding senior 
portraits. Fraternities are invari- 
ably late in getting in their ma- 

The over-used word "apathy" 
does not fully account for stu- 
dents' lack of support for the 
"Gulielmensian". There is a feeling 
on the part of many that some- 
how there is something immature 
and "gung-ho" about cooperatmg 
with the "Gul" to the hilt, and 
yet these same people find it ne- 
oes.sary to vociferously criticize 
the publication every spring. 

This year we have made a num- 
ber of Innovations which decidedly seem to me that the "Gul" serves

that the book be put on the col- 
Movies are your best entertainment 
See tlie Big Ones ot 

now, a college institution, but It 
is not. Only 60 per cent of the stu- 
dent body purchase the book, and 
thus, it is a great risk to print 
more books than can be sold to 
this percentage of the students. 

There are reasons for this un- 
willingness to buy. Many feel that 
the price of $6.50 is too high, and 
thus fail to realize that it Is im- 
possible to print a good yearbook 
and print it cheaply. The "Gul" 
costs over eight dollars to print, 
and it is only the money from ad- 
vertising that allows its sale for a 
dollar and a half less. Another 
point which is overlooked is that 
a book sold to a limited public 
must be expensive, since the real 
expense is in the plates used In 
printing. If every student bought 
the "Gul", and the usual amount 
of advertising was obtained, the 
cost would be under five dollars. 

The other and more important 
reason is the general indifference 
to student activities on the Wil- 
liams campus. Since the "Gul" is 
a record of these activities the at- 
titude of "what do I care about 
Williams?" is transposed into "why 
should I care about getting a year- 

Advertising also has been an im- 
portant problem. Prices are higher 
than in other publications, and 
have risen necessarily in the last 
few years. It is hard to get mer- 
chants to pay these prices and es- 
pecially old advertisers who are 
often adamant about paying the 
old prices, which leads at times 
to a variance in the price of ads. 
The great number of college pub- 
lications at Williams makes it very 
competitive business to obtain ad- 
vertising; the idea being to get to 
the merchants first with the best 
sales pitch. The fact that "Gul" 
ads come out once a year and are 
more expensive than other publi- 
cations puts the book at a dis- 

I feel that the main problem, 
however is its circulation. It would 

lege bill of each student. In this

Noted as a writer anil art liistoj Ian, Mr. Sweeney is currently 
president of the American section ol the International association 
(il Art Critics. Ik' is and has been on the editorial boards of several 
periodicals of artistic and literaiy criticism. 

Amoui^ Mr. Sweeney's numerous publications is "Plastic lie- 
directions in Twentieth (xMiturv Paintiuj;" which is usei' 
classes at Williams. A specialisto 

in Irish art, he is also interested 

ill art 

in primitive African sculpture. 

Director of Guggenheim 

Mr. Sweeney is director of the 
Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum 
of Modern Art, now temporarily 
located at 7 Eiust 72nd Street in 
New York. Upon completion of a 
new cylindrical building designed 
for the museum by noted architect 
Prank Lloyd Wright, the Guggen- 
lieim collection will be moved to 
iUs new quarters on 91st Street and 
Fifth Avenue. 

Before he was chosen director 
of the Guggenheim Museum, Mr. 
Sweeney planned several exhibits 
for the New York Museum of Mo- 
dem Art. These included one-man 
shows by the British sculptor Hen- 
ry Moore, and by the Spanish sur- 
realist Juan Miro. Mr. Sweeney did 
the catalogues for both exhibits. 

Born in Brooklyn at the turn of 
the century, Mr. Sweeney was for- 
mally educated at Georgetown 
University in Washington, D. C, 
at Jesus College of Cambridge Uni- 
versity In England, in France at 
the Sorbonne and in Italy at the 
University of Sienna. 

Professor S. Lane Faison, Jr., 
chairman of the Williams Art De- 
partment, has aided Mr. Sweeney 
in the selection of fourteen ex- 
amples of contemporary art from 
the Guggenheim Collection. These 
• are supplementary to Mr. Swee- 
ney's lecture, and are currently on 
exhibit in the upstairs galleries of 
Lawrence Hall. 

Modern Paintings 
On Exhibit Here 

Four'a'en examples of contem- 
porary art are on exhibit at Law- 
rence Hall through April 21. 

According to Professor S. Lane 
Faison, Jr., chairman of the Wil- 
liams Art Department, the 12 oil 
paintings and two ink drawings 
compose "the most modern show 
we've had in some time." Mr. Fai- 
son emphasized that the paintings 
were selected by James Johnson 
Sweeney, noted art critic and writ- 
er, to create interest in a lecture 
which Mr. Sweeney will deliver in 
10 Lawrence Thursday. The paint- 
ings are principally from the Sol- 
omon R. Guggenheim Museum in 
New York of which Mr. Sweeney is 

"Many of the painters are ones 
wliom I admire and try to teach 
in modern painting," Mr. Faison 
stated. He admitted that he is 
most impressed by a Japanese- 
Canadian painting by Yutaka O- 
hashi which depicts in vivid colors 
the artist's impression of a stone 

Tlie Art Department also an- 
nounced the showing begiiming 
May 9 of two local artists, Rassi 
Gifford and Daniel Shapiro. Mrs. 
Gifford is a modern painter who 
teaches a voluntary class in draw- 
ing, painting, and design while 
Mr. Shapiro is a Bennington in- 
structor in the graphic arts. 

Bennington College is preparing

Student Conduct 

Honor System-Discipline Committee 
Judges Cheating, Plagiarism Cases 

By Ernie Imhoff 

Operating in revised form since 
1938, the combined Williams Col- 
lege Honor System-Discipline 
Committee maintains a vital role 
of jurisdiction over student con- 
duct on this campus. 

Technically the organization is 
composed of two separately-func- 
tional groups with different scopes 
of authority. The joint Student- 
Faculty Discipline Committee con- 
sists of ten faculty members and 
eight students to consider misde- 
meanors of extra-academic nature 
and plagiarism. 

The Honor Committee is the 
same student group as above 
which, with the Dean, handles ex- 
clusively cheating on final exams 
and other tests. A subsidiary coun- 
cil, the Faculty Honors System 
Committee informs the faculty as 
a unit on the honors system and 
has no part In reviewing cases of 
alleged cheating.

'61 Acceptances 
Go Out April 20 

The Committee on Admissions 
has announced that it hopes to 
send out their preliminary accep- 
tances Saturday, April 20. 

Since the results of the March 
College Boards arrived only last 
week, Dean of Admission Freder- 
ick Copeland anticipates hectic 
sessions for the next several days. 

The Committee will send more 
acceptances tlian there are places 
in the incoming class. This is a 
common practice among colleges, 
because of a considerable number 
of expected refusals. The class of 
1961 will eventually number about 

R. Brooks, secretai-y. Dr. Urmy, 
Professors Waterman, Lamson, de- 
Lahiguera, Waite, Shainman, Pi- 
per and Power complete the fac- 
ulty board. 

The student counterpart opera- 
tional in both phases of the pro- 
gram has CC Vice President Jack 
Love '58, as chairman and Junior 
Advisor President Lou Lustenber- 
ger '58, acting on behalf of fresh- 
men. Other members include Jun- 
iors Dave Phillips and Charlie 
Gilchrist, sophomores Dick Jack- 
son and Hank Foltz and freshmen 
Ron Stegall and Bob Stegeman.

Dostert Lecture 

"Language in the Modern 
World" will be the topic of a 
talk by L. E. Dostert Tuesday, 
May 7, in the Biology Labora- 
tory. The lecture is co-spon- 
sored by the WiUiams Chapter 
of Pill Beta Kappa and the 
Lecture Committee. Mr. Dostert, 
from Georgetown University, 
was chief of translation services 
at the Nurenburg War Trials. 

The major innovation would be 
tlie elimination of all final bids 
and the utilization of the Roper 
Institute Card Selector machine to 
match preferential lists of houses 
and rushees. In the past, this la- 
borious task was done by hand. 

The new system requires that 
bolli houses and rushees submit 
two preferential lists. As in the 
past the first lists would be used 
to arrange preferential and sub- 
preferential periods. But the new, 
second preferential order lists 
would replace the present final- 
bid system. At no time will the 
sophomores receive any kind of 
bid from the houses until dinner 
invitations are sent. 

One Day Earlier 

Ruslring would start Thursday, 
Sept. 12, instead of Friday as in 
the past. This allows an extra off- 
day, Sunday, for the sorting of 
pref and sub-pref period bids. 

The Gargoyle report favored a 
system of a one-montii suciai 
membership for sophomores re- 
ceiving no final bids or who bounc- 
ed through the system. 

CC President Larry Nilsen '58, 
announced that Ted Wynne '58, 
and Jock Purcell '58, will comprise 
a Liaison committee to the Infir- 

WMS To Record 
Future Lectures 

Harmony again rules the rela- 
tions between WMS/WCFM and 
the Williams Lecture Committee. 

By a vote of 12-2, the Lecture 
Committee decided to allow the 
radio station to continue to record 
lectures sponsored by their com- 
mittee. At an earlier meeting the 
committee had voted to discon- 
tinue recordings by the radio sta- 
tion, which caused some dissatis- 
faction at WMS/WCFM. 

Yates Satterlee mediated be- 
tween the two parties and brought 
about an amicable settlement, sta- 
ting that the purpose of the radio 
station, "like that of the Williams 
Lecture Committee is to benefit 
the College and town by provid- 
ing educational entertainment." 

The dispute began several 
months ago when the radio sta- 
tion taped a visiting lecturer with- 
out authorization from the Lecture 
Committee. The main point of con- 
tention rose from the fact that 
the speaker was under contract 
with a record company and thus 
his lectures could not be recorded. 

There were other similar com- 
plaints offered by the Lecture 
Committee as reasons for such ac- 
tion. The radio station defended 
its side by saying that the error 
occurred during a period of chang- 
ing boards and in switching from 
AM to FM. The station said that 
before recording future lectures it 
would secure permission and make 
sure that technical difficulties 
would not interfere witli lectures. 

First Prep School Debate Held At Williams;

ior from Choate, accepts first- 
place award from JOHN STRU- 
THERS, AU president. 

Choate captured top honors in 
the first annual preparatory school 
debate series held here over the 

The competition sponsored by 
the Adelphic Union included rep- 
resentatives from Taft, Choate, 
Hotchkiss, Kent, Wilbraham, Wor- 
cester, Stratford and Hackley. 
Each school sent two teams with 
two members each, one debating 
the affirmative and one the nega- 
tive side of the question: "Resolv- 
ed: That the Federal Government 
Should Sustain the Prices of Ma- 
jor Agricultural Products at Not 
Less than 90 Per Cent of Parity". 

The final debate, between Choate 
and Stratford, was moderated by 

Adelphic Union President Jolin 
Struthers '59. Three Williams fac- 
ulty members served as judges. 
Three cups were awarded, the ma- 
jor one given to the Choate team, 
which scored the largest overall 
number of victories. The other a- 
wards were given to the best affir- 
mative and negative speakers, Judy 
Levy of Stratford and Dave For- 
ney of Choate. 

Professor of Public Speaking 
George G. Connelly commented 
upon the uniqueness of such a 
tournament, adding that he was 
"highly pleased that it worked out 
so well." The contest, he said will 
definitely take place again next 


Lacrosse Team Faces 
Top Syracuse Squad 

By Sam Parkhill 

The 1957 Williams lacrosse team

sophomores against a powerhouse

At the attack posts Bill Weaver, 
Dave Andrew and Rogers Southall 
will have to provide the needed 
scoring punch which will be badly 
needed against such strong oppo- 
nents as Harvard, Yale and Dart-

Coach Jim Ostendarp stated Wood will attempt to take up the 
that "We're just hoping to keep slack left by graduation, backed by 

the score down, but playing a- 
gainst such greats as Jim Brown 
and Jim Ridlon (of football fame) 
should be good for the boys." 

When quizzed on the team's out- 
look for the rest of their eight- 
game schedule, the coach termed 
the season as a building year. The 
loss of the entire midfield via 
graduation he felt would hurt the 
team until the sophomores could

Ephmen Play Host 
To Golf Tournament 

The New England Intercollegiate 
golf championship will be held In 
WiUiamstown May 10, 11 and 12. 

A year ago the local 6480 yard, 
par 70 layout was nationally her- 
alded following the USGA's Na- 
tional Junior Championships 
which were played at the Taconic 
Golf Club. 

Presentation of the New Eng- 
lands here is a tribute to profes- 
sional Dick Baxter, highly-success- 
ful coach of the Williams golf 
team. He is beginning his 34th 
season as pro at Taconic. 

Williams will again be the de- 
fending champion. Last year the 
Ephmen not only swept the team 
title but saw their captain, Mor- 
gan Coleman, copping the N. E, 
Intercollegiate crown. 

Outstanding Team Predicted 

As for this season, Baxter feels 
he will have a team as good if not 
better than last year's champions. 
Furthermore, the Williams golfers 
will have the advantage of playing 
on their home course in this year's 
New Englands. 

This will be the first time in 
history that the New England In 
tercoUegiate Championships will 
have a Western Massachusetts lo 
cale. A field of some 150 will be 
seen accepting the challenge of- 
fered by the Taconic layout. 

All the N. E. colleges will be rep- 
resented in the team play with the 
exception of Brown, Yale, Harvard 
and Dartmouth. These four are 
annual competitors in the Eastern 
Intercollegiate event to be held the 
same weekend. 

With the Student Union offering 
dining facilities, the Williams Inn 
offering accommodations and a 
well-appointed new clubhouse, it is 
hoped the college golfers will be 
afforded one of the finest setups 
in this tournament's long history. 

Freshmen Begin Spring Practices; 
Lacrosse Season To Start Today 

By Jim Robinson 

In the first intercollegiate 
spring competition the freshman 
lacrosse team takes on the Sienna 
Lacrosse Club of Sienna College to- 
day at Cole Field. Sienna has no 
organized lacrosse as a college 
function but the students organ- 
ized the club. 

Coach Al Shaw said that, "We 
have some of the best stickmen 
we've had in many years." He cited 
the strong attack and midfield po- 
sitions but said that there was still 
a lot of work to be done with the 
defense. Win Healy has shown a 
lot of improvement at that posi- 
tion and should help out the situ- 

The starting lineup for today's 
game will include: Attack, George 
Boynton, Nicholas Ratcliffe and 
Bayard De Mallie; Midfield, Cot- 
ton Fite, Charles Cutler and Ted 
Dankmeyer; Defense, Win Healy, 
Pete Lisle, and Dick Gallop; Har- 
vey Carter or Hal McCann will be 
in the goal. 

Baseball Prospects 

Although the foul weather has 
not given the baseball team much 
chance to practice except for the 
pitchers and catchers who worked 
in the cage, Coach Len Watters 
has been able to spot several pro- 
spective starters already. 

There are over thirty ball play- 
ers out for the squad this year in- 
cluding six pitchers. Among the 
pitchers are Al Miller, Pete Mul- 
hausen, Bill Todt, Don Lischer 
and Dick Eggers. Backstops for 
the mound staff will be starter Al 
Erb with Tom Mares as reserve.

Golf Team Begins Practice 
Poor weather and unfavorable 
ground conditions have proved a 
detriment to the golf team but 
now, with good weather setting in, 
Coach Dick Baxter hopes to gel in 
a few practice rounds in order to 
determine the lineup for the open- 
ing contest with Exeter on April 

Judging from the rounds played 
in the fall and the list of bo.vs 
signed up for the sport the out- 
standing players so far are: Mike 
Beamer. Jim Fisher. Bob Julius, 
Harry Love. Joel Sheperd. Chuck 
Smith and Al Zurn. 

There will only be two matche.s 
played on the Taconic Course, 
which will be the sight of the New

Exeter and Dartmouth matches. 
Away matches will be played with 
the Hotchkiss School. Choate and

Winter Track Team 
Elects Fox Captain 

Anchorman Bill Pox was elected 
captain of next year's winter re- 
lay team at a recent banquet. 

Letters were awarded to Andy 
Smith, Bill Pox, Tom Kellogg. 
Mack Hassler. Tony Harwood and 
George Sudduth. The only one of 
this group not returning next year 
is Andy Smith, captain this year. 

The team's record this year was 
the most impressive in a number 
of years. It included wins at the 
Boston Y. M. C. A. and Knights of 
Columbus meets, second place per- 
formances at the Mlllrose and K. 
of C. games in New York and a 
third at the BAA meet. 

The best time turned in by 
Coach Plansky's team was a 3:24.8 
at the Boston K. of C. Pox was 
consistently the best performer 
breaking 50 seconds three times 
and running a 49.2 in the last 
meet of the season. An extremely 
versatile rurmer, Pox also will serve 
as captain of next year's cross 
country team.

Delta Phi Alumni Present Their Side Of Current Dispute 

The complex situation at the 
Delta Phi house on this campus 
has been the center of consider- 
able controversy the past two 

A bitter dispute within the house 
over pledging four Jewish students 
this fall dramatically broke Into 
the public spotlight In February. 
The Alumni Board of Directors, 
charging a "breach of faith" and 
"financial Irresponsibility," at- 
tempted to Install a new constitu- 
tion and a new set of officers In 
the house. 

The SpUt 

As a result, D. Phi split into two 
groups, with 26 undergraduates, 
counter-charging the alumni with 
"anti-Semitism," fighting the 
move. Six undergraduates sup- 
ported the intervention. No fur- 
ther action of any consequence 
has been taken since by either 

Until now, Alumni representa- 
tives have declined to comment on 
their side of the dispute. Over the 
weekend, however, Alumni Presi- 
dent Theodore Lohrke '49, sub- 
mitted a detailed five-page state- 
ment to the RECORD and a per- 
sonal Interview was held between 
an alumni representative and the 
Editor of the RECORD. 

Accordingly, the RECORD here 
presents a summary of the alumni 
stand. This presentation has been 
approved by D. Phi Alumni offi- 

Alumni Stand 

Prior to World War II, the Del- 
ta Phi Constitution provided a 
one "blackball" arrangement for 
pledging. Since then, three black- 

balls were in vogue and last spring 
the undergraduates increased the 
number to five for pledging. At all 
times, however, one blackball has 
been in effect at initiation for elec- 
tion to full membership, it Is this 
one-blackball proviso which is the 
real basis for the entire dispute. 
The alumni charge that the un- 
dergraduates made the expansion 
to five blackballs for the express 
purpose of overriding four- present 
undergraduates, who had said they 
planned to blackball certain 
pledges prior to initiation this fall. 
The alumni attempted to remain 
clear of the disagreement at this 

The house here split into two 
groups. One group maintained its 
right to blackball prior to initia- 
tion. The other group, to quote the 
Lohrke statement, "led by officers 
of the chapter, felt a principle was 
involved and that this principle 
was more important than the fra- 
ternity itself. Their strong con- 
viction seemed to stem from the 
feeling that a fraternity should be 
a 'democratic' organization with 
majority rule, and not a selective 
society. No recognition was given 
by them that in joining the fra- 
ternity they agreed to abide by its 
constitution including provisions 
for selective membership." 

A Settlement 

At the request of the under- 
graduates, the Alumni here enter- 
ed the picture. An alumni "Pact- 
Finding Committee" after consul- 
tation with administration offi- 
cials and both undergraduate fac- 
tions, set up a compromise in No- 
vember which provided that the 

entire present pledge class be Ini- 
tiated and that in the future one 
blackball would be used for both 
pledging and initiation. The under- 
graduates at the time voted unan- 
imously to accept the compromise. 
The Sophomore pledges at the 
time expressed approval although 
they did not vote because they 
were not yet fraternity members. 
At a house meeting right after 
Initiation, the house voted to turn 
down the compromise. This was 
the "breach of faith" charged by 
the alumni. 

'Financial Irresponsibility' 

The second Alumni charge, "fi- 
nancial irresponsibility," revolved 
around the fact that over a period 
of time the undergraduates had 
allowed numerous house bills to 
accumulate. When the house clos- 
ed last summer, it was discovered 
that various students owed the 
house almost $2,000. Although the 
alumni established a special fi- 
nance committee to look into the 
situation, the house was still some 
$1,100 in debt at the end of the 
first semester. 

At this stage, the Alumni Board 
of Directors voted the action out- 
lined earlier and took over the 
house. The resulting furor follow- 
ed. Later attempts at compromise 

Anti-Semitism Charge 

Relating to the charges of anti- 
Semitism involved, the Lohrke 
statement said: "According to the 
newspapers and the radio, the A- 
lumni acted because of prejudices 
against Jewish pledges. It is true 
that when this year's pledge class 
was announced, some concern was 

expressed by certain Alumni and 
some undergraduates over the fact 
that a number of Jewish boys were 
pledged. However, the record shows 
that the house has always been one 
of the most open-minded on the 
Williams campus. One of its 
Chapter founders was of the Jew- 
ish faith. Over the years men of 
the Jewish faith have been mem- 
bers of the chapter. The charges 
of discrimination were used to 
cloud the issue which essentially 
was the privilege of an undergrad- 
uate to exercise the right to black- 

It is now clear that the one 
blackball proviso is the real heart 
of the controversy. If the local 

chapter does not accept this regu- 
lation, it faces almost certain ex- 
pulsion from the national and 
probable closing of the house by 
the Alumni. 

Just this weekend, the Delta Phi 
National Convention, meeting in 
Charlottesville, Va., voted to a- 
mend the National Constitution to 
provide that each chapter must 
use one blackball at pledging and 
initiation. It is also known that 
heavy alumni sentiment prevails 
favoring closing down the house 
if the one-blackball setup is not 
accepted here. 

The local undergraduates will 
have to make their choice before 
the closing of school this -pring. 

Dartmouth Announces Tri-Semester 
Plan; To Inspire Independent Study 

By Bill Arend 

The recently announced Dart- 
mouth College tri-semester plan 
will have no discernable effects 
on the Williams Community ac- 
cording to Dean Robert R. R. 

The Dartmouth curriculum plan 
is based upon a three-semester 
year with only three courses per 
semester. The semesters will be 
eleven weeks each, with Christ- 
mas lecess following the fu'st se- 
mester, spring vacation the second 
and summer vacation the third. 

Dean Brooks stated that the 
Dartmouth revisions will have "no 
immediate repercussions at Wil- 
liams". Faculty Committees here 

have been studying the feasibility 
of this plan as well as others, for 
some time. 

Student Responsibility 

The primary objective of the 
Dartmouth plan is a determined 
effort to increase the student's 
responsibility for his own educa- 
tion and to shift the emphasis 
from teaching to learning. 

An integral part of the plan is 
the program of general reading for 
all students. Increasing freedom 
from conventional textbook and 
classroom instruction is to be of- 
fered, as well as greater opportuni- 
ty to work with primary sources 
in the Library.

i-f you know where to look. 

A long time ago there was a grade A explorer named V. N. 
Balboa. Like a pogo stick with a hot foot, he hopped from 
place to place, discovering this and that. 

One day, paging through an old copy of the National Geo- 
graphic, he became intrigued with the idea of discovering the 
Pacific Ocean. He set sail for Laguna Beach and landed one 
night in Panama (his navigator was left-handed and a Uttle 
heavy on the stick). 

Next morning our hero found himself out at the inn . . . and 
out plenty. He was in a heavy-stakes poker game. Employ- i 
ing an old gambling custom often used but seldom effective. 




Mr. B. got up and walked around his chair. On the third 
time around, Bal espied in the distance a strange wet undulat- 
ing object. He climbed atop his chair (it was a high chair) 
and lo, below him was the Pacific Ocean. "Man, that ain't 
dew," he cried aloud, "that is an ocean of much magnitude!" 
. . . and instantly spread the news of this discovery to the 
world via the AP, UP and INS. (The rest is history.) 

Now, it's beyond us just why Balboa should receive such 
acclaim for discovering the Pacific Ocean, which every Indian 
in the vicinity worth his scalp-lock knew was there aU the 
time. We only relate this story in a sneaky effort to get 
around to a morsd . . . 

MORAL: When you discover Budweiser, you'll discover that Budweiser 
is to beer as the Pacific is to oceans . . . the most!

needed face lifting. This was ac- 
complished by the local Williams 
chapter of Phi Delta Theta. 

Directors of the project were 
Phi Delts Rich Wagner '58, and 
Dick Lehrbach '58. They organiz- 
ed over 40 brothers and a number 
of their dates into work crews 
which cleaned, replastered and re- 
painted the building. 

Over 100 pounds of plaster and 
several gallons of paint were lib-

Theologian Tillich Meets Students Informally 
During Successful Dave Sterling Fund Visit 

Dr. Paul Tillich, renowned Har- 
vard theologian who was the first 
guest of the Dave Sterling Fund 
this weekend, was greeted by lar- 
ger crowds than anticipated at his 
informal lectures. 

Friday afternoon Dr. Tillich 
spoke on modern art and religion. 
That evening he dined at the Saint 
House before talking with interest- 
ed students who packed Rev. Cole's 
home. Saturday morning the the- 
ologian conducted several religion 
classes. In the afternoon it was 
necessary to transfer Dr. TiUlch's 
discussion on contemporary liter- 
ature and religion from Mather 
House to the Rathskeller to ac- 
commodate the crowd. 

Informal Talks 

The Informal talks permitted the 
students to ask Dr. Tillich ques- 
tions ranging from "What is 
God'?" to contemporary writers 
and their works. Next year the 
Dave Sterling Fund will again 
sponsor the visit of another out- 
standing intellectual. 

Dee Gardner, one of the Fund's 
student chairmen, commented, 
"Everyone on the committee 
thought the discussions were well 
received. Dr. Tillich had a chance 
to answer questions outside of 
meetings". The committee tried to 
enable students to meet Dr. Till- 
ich on a personal basis. 

riculum, the undergraduate will 
spend substantially greater and 
more concentrated time on each 
course, with the emphasis being 
placed on independent work. 

The Dartmouth Dean visualizes 
the new curriculum arrangement 
as reducing discipline troubles. "As 
the major vacations come at the 
end of each term, a lot of the pres- 
sure for early excuses will be taken 
off. If the new curriculum suc- 
ceeds in raising intellectual acti- 
vity, It stands to reason there will 
be less trouble from loose hands."

Reply To Alumni 

At a regular house meeting Wed- 
nesday night, the 26 members of 
Delta Phi voted to issue a state- 
ment in answer to D. Phi Alumni 
assertions printed in the April 17 

No action was taken on the key 
"one black-ball" issue, heart of 
the contention. Final resolution 
will now probably await the Wil-

According to house president 
Nick Pangas '58, a committee has 
been selected to draw up an inter- 
pretation of the issues and events 
as it sees them. The purpose of 
this statement is simply to "avoid 
misunderstanding" and not to es- 
tablish house policy or initiate any 
new action. 

If the local chapter does not ac- 
cept the one-blackball agreement. 
Alumni officials speculate, it faces 
almost certain expulsion from the 
National and probable closing of 
the house by the Alumni. 

houses have the power and the re- 
sponsibility for picking up any and 
all people eligible for social mem- 
bership. Eligibility shall be defined 
as listing pref and sub-pref peri- 
ods, if attended, within a list of 
twelve houses." 

Total Opportunity 

In other words, for a rushee to 
be eligible for social membership 
bids, he must list at least twelve 
houses in his final preferential list. 
In this listing, he must include the 
houses which he visited during his 
pref and sub-pref periods. 

Dee Gardner, representing Gar- 
goyle with Jim Mabie, stated that 
the report is "a compromise pro- 
posal. It is not total opportunity 
exactly, but may lead to achieve- 
ment of this goal," he said. 

As the plan stands, social mem- 
bership "shall consist of dining 
and social privileges for a period 
of one month. At the end of this 
time the fraternity may either 
pledge the social member, extend 
the social membership, or notify 
the Social Council that the social 
member will be dropped and will 
be available for other bids or so- 
cial membership invitations." 

Dave Wood's new rushing report 
of the joint CC-SC committee was 
considered. This report will be 
brought up for approval at a joint 
SC-CC meeting next Tuesday. 

400 Jeffs Fill In Excavation At Midnight; 
Police Saw No Reason To Disperse Mob 

More than 400 Amherst College 
students in a well-organized de- 
monstration Tuesday night, mis- 
taking a soil-sampling project as 
the start of a much-discussed reli- 
gion building, filled the excavation 
with sand, rocks and waste paper, 
the "Springfield Union" reported. 

Amherst students said that the 
proposed building is something the 
student body does not want be- 
cause there already are two cha- 
pels on campus. They feel that 
other facilities, such as social ac- 

commodations for guests, better 
rooming facilities and expanded 
recreational areas are needed more 
than a third chapel. 

When the College undertook to 
sample the soil at the proposed 
location of the new building, stu- 
dents thought construction had be- 
gun. The crowd began filling the 
excavation at 11 p.m. Tuesday. 
The demonstrators were orderly 
and police at the scene found no 
reason to dispel the mob. 

The second in a series of stu- 
dent concerts sponsored by the 
Williams Department of Music 
featuring student and faculty tal- 
ent will be held Friday night in 
the Presliman Lounge of Baxter 

Larry Allen '58, will open the 
program at the piano, playing 
"Prelude and Fugue in E major by 
Bach followed by selections from 
Bartok's "Mikrokosmos Vol. Ill' 
and Beethoven's "Sonata in G ma- 
jor (Opus 79)". 

Works by Bach, Schumann, 
Faure, and Mozart will be perform- 
ed by Walter Nollner of the Mu- 
sic Department at the piano and 
David Nevin '57, tenor. 

Dan Chapman '58, will do Bach's 
"Prelude and fugue in G major" 
and Chopin's "Scherzo in B mi- 

Allen will switch to the clarinet 
for the closing selections and join 
pianist Thomas Griswold of the ' 
Music Department to present Paul 
Hinemith's "Sonata for clarinet 
and piano". 

Admission will be free. 

Freshman Debate 
Topic, Date Set 

The Adelphic Union has an- 
nounced that the annual Freshman 
Debate will be held at 7:30 p.m. 
Monday in Griffin Hall. 

The topic under consideration 
will be; "Resolved that this house 
favors the present system of Jun- 
ior Advisors". Individual speakers 
will take either side of the argu- 
ment and will be allowed eight 
minutes for their constructive 
speech and three for a rebuttal. 
First prize Is a cash award of $20 
and second place takes $10. 

Freshmen Interested should re- 
gister with Professor Connelly by 
April 26th. John Struthers won the 
event last year.

The Rushing System 

The new Rushing system, if accepted, could 
move Williams coiisiclcrably closer to that my- 
thical plienomenoii known as Total Opportunity. 
And it conceivably could do tiiis without in- 
fringing on anyone's right of selectivity. 

First, final bids have been eliminated. Now, 
both rushee and house merely list their selections 
in order of preference. This means that rushees 
and houses can make longer lists, which should 
increase the number of so)3]ionioves landing in 
a house. In the jiast, sophomores were limited to 
listing only houses from which they received bids 
while houses restricted the number of final bids 
issued on tlie theory that too many offers could 
be taken as a sign of weakness. 

Secondly, the method of extending; post- 
rushing bids has been intellijfently altered. Now, 
prior to the Post-llushing Committee meeting, 
each house will be PERSONALLY notified by 
committeemen of those rushees not yet in a 
house. This should allow EVERY house to vote 
on these men before the post-rushing meeting. 

These two innovations should substantially 
reduce the number of rushees left over. Then, 
the ]5roposed Gargoyle Social Membership plan, 
if accepted, would be a worthwhile and practi- 
cal siip])lenient to the system. 

Tlie Gargoyle ])lan, which definitely should 
he a])|)rov'ed jDrovides that so]5homores who do 
not get jjicked up will be extended a SOCIAL 
membershiii on a one-month trial basis. This 
workable ]-)lan, of course, maintains the frater- 
nity's rights of selectivity. 

Thus, thanks to the Wood Committee's first- 
rate jjrodiiction, which inherently holds great 
])0ssibilities. it apjjears that more soiihomores 
will have the privelege of joining fraternities 
here next fall. 

Direct Legs 

One of the few controvertial ideas in the 
Wood Report is the i^rovision that direct legacies 
no longer must get "all or nothing" priority on 
fraternity bid lists. 

The main argument offered by the Wood 
Committee in support of tins change is "Pop- 
ular sentiment appears to view the direct leg- 
acy system witli disfavor." Since the committee 
made no effort to sample campus opinion it real- 
ly isn't in a position to make such an assertion. 

The rushing committee includes Messrs. 
Wood, Sims, Dew, Harter, Fetter, Jackson, Grey. 
Let them hear from you now.

Intermezzo' Hailed 

by S. Lane t'aUson, Jr. 
Amos Lawrence Frofessor of Art 

"Intermezzo", by jean Giiadoux, was pre- 
sented to an cuUiusiastic audience Wednesday 
and lliursday at die AMT. As periormed at the 
dress rehearsal its spell was so pervasive tliat 
it was very appealing even to tliose wlio do not 
number French among Uieir languages. I'or tiiose 
who did, it was a rare treat: words of wit and 
great beauty, ideas to contemplate even as they 
were transformed Uirough the tensions of char- 
acter gesture and expression to suit tlie spoken 
line, movement as harmonious as a well-ordered 
ballet, a special musical score as sprightly us it 
was tactful and sets as fresh and lovely as these 
eyes liave seen in many a day. 

All de|3artnients of this production worked 
in graceful accord. The Jjlay, a serious comedy, 
is eniuicntiy worth doing. Everywhere diere was 
evidence ot understanding, taste, and measure, all 
enlivened by a vivacious pace. The guiding spirit 
made me promise that 1 would not mention liis 
name. There are two ghosts m die evening's pro- 
ceedings, but he is not one of diem. Not believ- 
ing in conductorless orchestras, 1 dierefore sa- 
lute hull, and waiiiily. 

With respect to die dieme, suffice it to say 
diat ordered society is here gently but search- 
mgly si^oofed, and tliat die world of imagination 
and deeper reahty is most eharmmgly proclaim- 
ed. As a result diis reviewer, like the others pre- 
sent, left refreshed and, for die moment at least, 

As the Mayor, Peter Rose was endeaxiagly 
stuffy, and his French, wluch 1 miderstand be- 
gan at Williams college, was superb. Thomas Ed- 
son as the Druggist made him an admirable foil. 
Carolyn Murpliy's Isabelle was animated and 
deft, while the urbane grace of Bernard Lan- 
vin's Controleur eonhasted tellingly witli the 
intensity of Herb Varnuin's ghost and that of 
Henry Cohen's ghost's ghost— a characterization 
so good diat its brevity was tantalizing. 

As the Inspector, Bruno Quinsou almost had 
me believing that I was looking at Raimu; while 
the pair of executioners, Messrs. Scoble and Par- 
sons, put on a tap dance act worthy of Van and 
Schenck (does anybody remember them?) to 
music as good, to my ears, as Cole Porter's 'Too 
Darn Hot." "That pair of zanies, Mesdames 
Hirsclie and Scoble, revived memories of certain 
pixies of Chaillot. 

I have saved for the end a sextette of femini- 
ne moppets. Louise, Katy, Hannah, Mary, AHce, 
and Debby ( diey have last names, but who cares 
about their parentsV) brightened every minute 
diey were on the stage. They gurgled, spoke, 
babbled, danced, giggled and chanted in a man- 
ner we might as well call radiant, because that is 
what it was. 

For die occasion Mr. Griswold invented 
some sparkling music and it was delivered with 
skill by his well-matched group. Mr. Hirsche's 
sets delighted the eye. Among many refinements, 
I might mention what hap])ened to the fence in 
front of the hills when the light changed. An ex- 
traordinary touch was the stove, stovepi]3e and 
curl of smoke in the set for the third act. The 
costuming, too, avoided all suggestions of the 
attic or the rented trunk. 

if the world of reality were less pressing, I 
should like to see all this twice again and be 
around for all those curtain calls that are sure 
to come. 

Personal Comments 

1984 And All That 

by Stephen C. Rose 

If last Monday's CC vote remains final, FM 
receivers will be installed in each fraternity di- 
ning room at a cost of 50c per student. 

Big Brother will pipe useful bits of informa- 
tion each noon, and students will get lazier and 
lazier. Presumably the next big move by the 
communications-conscious CC will be to install 
TV screens in each bedroom so that sack-rats 
will be able to hear the advisor without too much 

This was an arbitrary move by the CC. The 
vodng members of the student body were given 
no say in the matter. This, in itself, is not bad. 
Presumably the CC felt it was acting in the best 
interests of the college. This is where it went 

Each fraternity should be able to muster up 
pledges to obtain and read the Advisor each noon. 
If they do not do this, they obviously don't care 
a great deal about what is going on. The recent 
Orwellian move is an admission of such a lack 
of concern. What the CC is saying is that stu- 
dents have not the energy to pick up and read a 
tiny sheet of paper each day. 

If this is so, students should be kicked rather 
than coddled. Either the CC should change its 
mind or students should boycott. Tlie present 
proposal is no more than an admission of ex- 
treme student apathy. 


To the Record: 

The last production of the season at the Adams Memorial 
Theatre May 9, 10. and 11 represents a break with the practice of 
die past several years. This will be a strictly Cap and Bells pro- 
duction of a ))lay selected by the Cap and Bells Council. 

The play, Elmer Rice's 'Dream Girl," is to be directed at the 
invitation of the Caji and Bells Council by William J. Martin. Bob 
Vail '58, Patrick McGiiinis '57 and Ridgeway Banks '58 are combin- 
ing their talents to design and execute the unusually elaborate sets. 

While "Dream Girl ' will be the first play for some years to be 
sponsored and organized exclusively by Caj) and Bells, it will also 
be, ike every other production at the Adams Memorial Theatre, 
an all-college |iroduction. The majority of the east, that Mr. Mar- 
tin has assembled are not Caj) and Bells nienibers; and it should 
be emphasized that while Cap and Bells membership does not 
carry with it any preferential right to |)artici))ation in jilays which 
are open, eciually, to every member of the student body. 

Elmer Rice is one of the most distinguished of contemporary 
American dramatists. In choosing his 'Dream Girl" to complete 
the season, the Cap and Bells Council had in mind the desirabihty 
of producing a famous American jilay to make a rounded and 
balanced program for the year.

Purple Key is aiming at making 


NEW YORK 2, N. Y. 

the dinner not only an annual af- 
fair and u climax to the year, but 
tlie dinner also has some objective 
goals for the student body. Presi- 
dent Shortlidge was quoted as say- 
ing that one of the purposes of the 
dinner was to "develop a real unity 
in the athletic program of the col- 
lege and by giving the students this 
dinner as a reward instill a greater 
respect for the Williams letter, 
thus encouraging more wearing of 

He also pointed out that tliis 
would take the place of the indi- 
vidual team dinners and in that 
connection the seating of coaches 
and players will be mixed. All the 
athletic awards of the college, 
usually made on Gargoyle Tap Day 
will be made at the dinner. 

Listed in the program will be 
the Alumni Lacrosse Award, Bel-

"Don't be a coach," said lacrosse 
mentor Jim Ostendarp, "You get 
ulcers." Why then does one of the 
most capable and kindly coaclies 
on the Williams campus devote 
his life to working with college 

Coach Ostendarp answered, 
"College years make up the period 
in life when the individual con- 
scientiously tries to develop him- 
self, and I want to play some small 
part I he emphasized small, al- 
though his boys feel he plays a 
very large part) in that develop- 
ment in a few individuals." 

Before graduating from Balti- 
more Polytechnic High School in 
1942, Ostendarp found time to be- 
come all-state quarterback and 
"fool around" in wrestling. He 
also played club lacrosse. 
Armed Services 

Ostendarp then entered the Uni- 
versity of Maryland, but his ath- 
letic career was cut short when the 
call came from Uncle Sam. Os- 
tendarp spent three years in the 
82nd Airborne division, playing di- 
vision football in his last year and 
gaining All-Seventh Army hon- 
ors as a halfback. 

After his stint In the army. Os- 
tendarp retm-ned to Bucknell Uni- 
versity in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania. 
Here he became acquainted with 
football's split-T formation which 
he so ably coaches at Williams, At 
Bucknell he earned honorable 
mention on the Little All-America 
Football team at halfback. He also

spent some time organizing Buck- 
nell's first lacrosse club. He grad- 
uated from Bucknell in 1949. 

Ostendarp then joined the pro 
grid ranks, playing under Steve 
Owen for the New York Giants. Al- 
though he claims that he didn't see 
much action, he says he learned a 
lot about coaching from the 
"smartest defense coach there is." 

Canadian Pro 

Prom the Giants, Ostendarp 
went to the Canadian League and 
played on the Montreal Allouettes 
under coach "Peahead" Walker. He 
reports that Canadian football is 
similar to the U. S. game but fast- 
er. However, Ostendarp still earn- 
ed the award as the outstanding 
player of the Allouettes in 1952. 

The following year, Ostendarp 
went back to Bucknell as backfield 
coach for the football team and as 
head wrestling and lacrosse men- 
tor. Then, in 1955, he came to 
Williams as freshman football 
coach, assistant wrestling coach 
and head lacrosse coach. 

Ostendarp's freshman football 
team compiled an excellent rec- 
ord, going undefeated in five 
games. During that year, his year- 
lings ran up a total of 130 points 
to tlie opponents' 18. Ostendarp Is 
now backfield coach for the Eph 

Williams Wrestling 

Ostendarp's wrestling team has 
also done very well. After coaching 
the freshman grapplers to an un- 
defeated season and a New Eng- 
land championship, he became 
head coach for the '56-'57 season, 
piloting the team to second place 
in the New England Wrestling 
Tournament. His stalwarts suffer-

New Interest Sparks 
Williams Flying Club 

By BiU Edgar 

The Williams Plying Club has 
been rejuvenated by a I'luny of in- 
terest this spring. 

The Club's Cessna 140, which 
had been grounded for some time 
at Harriman Field in North Adams 
because of financial difficulties, is 
currently flown up to ten hours 
every week thanks to growing in- 
terest. The active membership is at 
present 10 students. 

Members have flown those in 
need of quick transportation to 
New York, Boston, Albany and 
girls' colleges over the past two 
months. An intercollegiate air show 
will be scheduled for Sunday of 
houseparty weekend if the Club re- 
ceives an SAC grant. Club pre- 
sident John Greer '59, has been 
approached by several students In- 
terested in joining the club or in 
learning how to fly. 

"We're trying to promote inter- 
est in aviation," said Greer, "but 
the real purpose of the Club is just 
to have a good time."

Placement Bureau Hits 
ISew Interview Record 

A record number of interviews, 
double last year's total, were con- 
ducted by representatives of busi- 
ness firms and schools at Wil- 
liams this Spring, Manton Cope- 
land Jr., Director of the Placemeiil 
Bureau, stated today. 

Asked if a '57 graduate would 
liave more difficulty in securing a 
job than a graduate of last year, 
Mr. Copeland replied that the sit- 
uation was "quite the opposite." 
The field of obtaining employment, 
he emphasized, is still very much 
"a seller's market." The position 
of the Placement Bureau remains 
not one of just getting the gradu- 
ate a job, but "aiding him in find- 
ing the right job," he added. 
106 Interviewers 

A total of ninety-six companies 
and ten schools held recruiting 
sessions here through last month. 
Of these, the highest number of 
interviews, 44, were given by Kai- 
ser Aluminum. Vick Chemical ran 
a close second with 43 intei-views 
while Proctor & Gamble held 40. 

Of the 234 seniors at Williams, 
180 were on the "active" list, the 
rest being slated for graduate 
school. Seventy-seven seniors took 
5 or more interviews, 19 had only 
two interviews, and 22 went 
through only one interview for an 
average of 9.05 Interviews among 
seniors who participated. Approxi- 
mately 22 per cent of the seniors 
on the active list took no inter- 
views at all. 

Steel Bids High 

The minimum monthly salary 
offer was $333, from a bank; the 
highest offer was $450, with a 1.35 
per cent cost of living agreement, 
by a steel corporation. As of April 
1, offers of employment had been 
made by 19 companies and 8 sec- 
ondary schools. It is still much too 
early to determine the full scale 
of offers, however, Copeland said. 

Each company interviewed an 
average of 11.87 students, with 
mid-February as the peak period. 
The largest number of interviews 
for one day was 73 February 14. 
The number of seniors participat- 
ing in the series was equalled by 
interested freshmen, sophomores 
and juniors, 149 of whom had a 
look at what was offered this year.

Sophomores, Dept. Chairman Find 
Inadequacies In Conferences 

By Sandy Murray 

Confronted with the familiar 
problem of helping sophomores 
choose majors, Williams apparent- 
ly has not found the cure-all in 
the major conferences held earlier 
this month. 

The RECORD, fathoming stu- 
dent and faculty opinion on the 
conferences, found that their main 
value was as a supplement, or, in 
many cases, as a preliminary to 
more personal, involved question- 
ing by students registering pro- 

Departmental chairmen felt that 
if students felt the conferences 
were of value they should be con- 
tinued, especially on the Informal 
questlon-and-answer level. There 
was a general expression of appro- 
val in the Increased turnout over 
last year, and, as voiced by Pro- 
fessor Vincent M. Barnett. Chair- 
man of the Political Science De- 
partment, in the greater intelli- 
gence of questions asked. 

Student opinion held that while 
personal discussion with profes- 
sors was preferable not everyone 
could be fully accommodated, 
which Justifies continuation of the 
conferences. As noted by John 
Struthers, the course catalogue 
covered details of the major, but 
there were certain phases needing 
elucidation. For example, accord- 
ing to Ted Oppenhelmer and Ray 
Kline, the question of honors 
needed more explanation. 

In the way of additional help to 
students. Professor Emile Despres, 
Chairman of Economics, felt that 
most could be gained from talking 
to seniors in the major and in fra- 
ternity discussion programs which 
have already been inaugurated in 
some houses. 

Interim Chairman of the De 
partment of History Robert C. L. 
Scott advanced a program enabling 
sophomores to sit In on advanced 
courses during a one or two-week 

English Debaters 
To Oppose Ephs 
Wednesday Night 

Making an annual stop on then- 
American tour, two English deba- 
ters will take on the best of the 
Adelphic Union in Jesup Hall at 
8:00 p.m. Wednesday. 

Dave Phillips '58, and Marc Le- 
venstein '58, will take the affirma- 
tive of the national topic: Re- 
solved: that the U. S. should Dis- 
continue Direct Economic Aid to 
Foreign Countries. 

The English team, a combina- 
tion of Gareth K. Morgan of the 
University Bristol and Meirion L. 
Davies of the College of North 
Wales, is sponsored by the Insti- 
tute of International Education of 
New York. 

Mr. Morgan is at this time read- 
ing for his degree in History which 
he will receive from Bristol in 
June. He has been debating since 
1953 and has represented his col- 
lege in national competition for 
two years. Mr. Morgan has a rank 
of 'trooper' in the 21st Special Air 

Mr. Davies has received his B. A. 
from the college of North Wales 
in Philosophy and is studying for 
his M. A. A leader in his class he 
was President of the Student Rep- 
resentative Council from 1954-55 
and was a semi-finalist in the 
Welsh-speaking Debating Tourna- 
ment under the auspices of the 
B. B. C. 

Both debaters emphasize the 
casual attack backed by an array 
of British-American anecdotes. 
They were very successful at Wes- 
leyan last week. 

Hunt To Present 
Final Colloqumm 

The Student Union Committee 
announced that Professor Clay 
Hunt will give the final colloquium 
of the year at 7:30 p.m. Thursday 
in the SU lower lounge. 

Professor Hunt will talk on the 
"New Science and 17th Century 
Literature". This will be a repeat 
of a physics colloquium given by 
Professor Hunt last week. He will 
deal with the effects of the new 
discoveries of natural phenomina 
on the writing of not only the 17th 
but also succeeding centuries, con- 
cluding with a "man on the street" 
view of what science means today.

Rudnick Announces 
New Town Manager 

John Maynard Austin, 36, now 
town manager of Houlton, Maine 
has been appointed town manager

An original work by assistant 
Professor of Music, Walter NoU- 
ner, will be featured in a con- 
cert at 8:15 p.m. Friday in 
Chapin Hall. 

Pianist NoUner and cellist 
George Finckel, a member of 
the Bennington music faculty, 
will give the first performance 
of Ml'. Noliner's original "slow 
elegy of a highly expressive na- 
ture" for cello and piano. 

Bach's Suite No. 2 in D mi- 
nor for unaccompanied cello, 
played by Mr. Finckel, will also 
highlight the program. The duo 
will also play works by Vivaldi, 
Debussy and Beethoven. 

Mr. Finckel, a well-known 
concert performer, completed a 
tour of the Rocky Mountain and 
Pacific Coast states during 
Bennington's non-resident term. 
He has appeared frequently at 
Town Hall in New York City. 

Sweeney Lectures 
On Modern Painting 

Wlien James Sweeney lectured to 
an overflow crowd on "Painting 
Today" Tliursday night, he 
brought out the pomt that the 
successful pamters of the future 
will be those who play with art. 

Lecturing from slides, Mr. Swee- 
ney said that the Puritan back- 
ground of American art has led to 
too much seriousness in today's 
art. The lecturer stated that the 
centuries of background that the 
Europeans have had has led to a 
much freer art. 

Mr. Sweeney used Paul Klee's 
art as a good example of what 
American art should be like. 

With the ultimate Intentions of 
a more representative student gov- 
ernment at Williams, the motion 

1) That no person may hold 
more than one of the following of- 
fices: president or vice president 
of the College Council, president 
of the Social Council, president of 
the Gargoyle Society, editor-in- 
cliief of the RECORD or class pre- 

2) That members of the Social 
Council may not serve on the 
College Council except the Pre- 
sident of the Social Council. 

As a supplementary recommen- 
dation Gargoyle Included a clause 
for consideration whereby frater- 
nity elections would be held prior 
to the all-college CC elections. In 
this way a fraternity would not be 
deprived of their most competent 
leaders while advantage is taken 
of a wider scope of able men in 
an all-college election than the 
choice granted in each fraternity. 

To pass, the amendment must 
be approved by the College Coun- 
cil and two-thirds of the student 
body. Action is expected within 
two weeks. 

Speaking for Dick Pearon '57, 
and Dave HlUiard '57, other Gar- 
goyle committee members, Arne 
Carlson '57, commented on the 
advantage of such organizations as 
the CC and SC being less overlap- 
ping and more individual. As a re- 
sult one person would not hold 
stakes in different facets of cam- 
pus life which might result in 
split loyalties. A clear delineation 
can be made between a personal 
opinion and the opinion of a rep- 
resented "constituency". 

In conclusion Carlson said, "If 
this were passed, it would strength- 
en both the CC and SC. The 
change would contribute toward 
a more representative and critical 
system of government with more 
thought involved on all sides."

Constitutional Amendment 

Th Garfroyle reconunc'iidatioii to diversify 
office-holding on this camjjus (.sec jiafre one) 
should be approved by the College CJouneil and 
the student body. 

The Cargoyle reeoniinendation to diversify 
member (house president) sliould serve on tlie 
College Council, with the exception of the SC 
President. As a matter of jDracticality, Gargoyle 
suggests that houses select their presidents before 
the all-colk'ge CC elections to ]irevent duplica- 

In addition, a second jDrojiosed amendment 
to the College Council Constitution would |ire- 
vent a man from holding more than one office 
from among president or vice-president of the 
College Council, President of the Social Council, 
Gargoyle president, class ]3resident and Editor- 
in-Chief of the Record. 

These proposals would not only diversify 
responsibility but would also eradicate the pro- 
blem of overly-active individuals trying to recon- 
cile split loyalties. Enactment of these proposals 
would leacl to better-defined student Govern- 
ment here. 

Meeting Tonight 

One of the most important College Council- 
Social Council meetings of the entire year will 
be held tonight (Tuesday) in the Rathskeller. 

Tiie new rushing system, including the con- 
troversial Gargoyle Total 0]D|5ortunity plan, will 
be discussed and possibly decided u|)on. The CC 
and SC hojje for a large turnout tonight, so that 
the new rushing system will more accurately re- 
flect student ojiinion. 

Personal Comment s 
Gargoyle's Total Opportunity 

By Sinieral Bunch 

The Recoiuj recently reported and editorial 
ly approved the Gargoyle Total Op]iortunity Re- 
port, with ])articular emphasis on the social 
membershi]3 aspect of the plan. This ap])roval 
I feel, was an error. 

Like many others, I ajiproved the plan at 
first sight. Rut a little more inspection showed 
some rather definite flaws in the ))lan. What it 
offers is not Total Opportunity, but second-class 
citizenship which could possibly turn out far 
more injurious to the student involved that quick 
denial of house membership. It could offer a slow 
torture at the end of which might lie only magni- 
fied unhappiness. 

Gargoyle failed to ask any non-affiliates 
what they thought of the plan before tliey re- 
leased it. They would have found, as I did, that 
many— if not most— non-affiUates would be un- 
willing to accept the degredation and humiliation 
which is inate in any system which offers such 
second-class citizenship. 

Can the fraternity members on tliis cam- 
pus picture themselves in the shoes of the sopho- 
more who has just been told that he is not good 
enough for any house to offer him membership, 
but that house such-and-such will put him on 
trial for a month, at the end of which it can dump 
him if it wishes? Can very many say that they 
would prefer this social system to the present 
one? I for one would not prefer it. And I am not 

Total opportmiity is a difficult tiling to a- 
chieve. The Gargoyle Report is not the solution. 
The only answer lies in the fraternities thcm- 
selves-its members and its leaders. Only through 
their voluntary action will this problem be satis- 
factorily resolved. It will not be resolved by any 
"social membership." 

Grad Schools Highly

By Dave Skaff 

How well does Williams College prepare 
its pre-niedical candidates for admission to med- 
ical schools? This question and many others di- 
ccted at getting the facts concerning 'premeds" 
at Williams were asked Professor Samuel Mat- 
thews, Advisor to Premedical Students. 

The Rkcoiu), seeking to make an unbiased in- 
vestigation of Williams' ability to ]ilace premed 
students, found the results very encouraging for 
aspirants in this field. 

Williams' premedical course fulfills the re- 
(juirements for admission to any medical school 
in the United States and covers more material 
than is required by many. This is expecially true 
in the field of chemistry. 

96.4% At Williams Accepted 

When Professor Mattliews was asked about 
the common belief among students that medical 
schools in the United States are accepting only 
one out of three applicants, he was quick to point 
out tlic gross error here. Over 50 per cent of all 
ap|)lieants are admitted to medical schools. 

In regards to Williams' record, die results 
were excellent and backed up by impressive 
figmes for the jjast six years. Excluding tlie re- 
sults for this past year which are not yet com- 
plete, Williams has had 96.4 per cent of its pre- 
med applicants admitted to med schools. 

The ]5n ined a|5]Dlicants for 1952, 1953 and 

1954 were all admitted to medical schools. In 

1955 only 3 out of 35 candidates failed to gain 
admission to a nied school. Out of 24 hopefuls 
in 1956, 20 made the grade by graduation and, 
since then, two more have been admitted. A total 
of 22 out of 24 were tlius accepted in the final 
reckoning. Some minor calculations will show a 
100 ]3cr cent average for three years and a 91 
|3er cent average for the other two years. The pre- 
sent class of 'premeds ", with final figures still 
pending, has 28 out of 35 accepted to date. 
Prcmcd Students Do Well On Medical Boards. 

It was asked if Williams follows the ]3olicy 
of some colleges and universities of refusing to 
let candidates who are not "sure bets " ajjply to 
medical school to ]3reserve outstanding and im- 
|)ressive ]5lacement scores. Professor Mattliews 
made it clear that any student desiring admit- 
tance is encouraged to apply. 

The Record also noted that the annual Med- 
ical Roards were the source of much worry and 
complaint for premed students at Williams. Al- 
though the statistics for these exams are of a 
confidential nature. Professor Mattliews revealed 
that Williams men have done very well and that 
the results generally were quite high. The ad- 
missions records would appear to substantiate 
this generality. 

No exact figures were available showing the 
achievements of Williams men in medical 
schools, but Professor Matthews noted that in- 
dividual accomplishments vary a great deal. 
Those who have been accepted have very rarely 
flunked out. 

Professor Matthews summed up the situation 
by referring to comments he often hears during 
his visits to med schools. These lead him to be- 
lieve that "medical schools very much like our

The academic world has made its first tentative steps 
into television. A few lectures, a few seminar.s, but may 
I respectfully suggest that the academic world has not 
yet learned the full potential of television? 

Why don't the colleges use television's vast capacity 
to dramatize, to amuse, to unshackle the imagination? 
Like, for example, this: 

Announcer: Howdy, folks. Well, it's time again for 
that lovable, laughable pair, Emmett Twonkey Magruder, 
Ph.D., and Felicia May Crimscott, M.A., in that rollick- 
ing, roistering fun show, American History 101. . . . And 
here they are, the team that took the "hiss" out of 
"history"— Emmett Twonkey Magruder and Felicia May

Dr. Magruder: Howdy, folks. A funny thing hap- 
pened to me on the way to my doctorate. A mendicant 
approached me and said, " me, sir, will you give 
me 25 cents for a sandwich?" I repUed, "Perhaps I will, 
my good man. Let me see the sandwich." 

Miss Crimscott: Oh, how droll. Dr. Magruder! How 
piquant! How j'e ne miR quoi! . . . But enough of badi- 
nage. Let us get on with our rollicking, roistering fun 
show, American History 101. 

Dr. Magruder: Today we will dramatize the taut and 
tingling story of John Smith and Pocahontas. I will play 
Captain Smith and Miss Crimscott will play Pocahontas. 

Announcer; But first a message from our sponsor. 
. . . Folks, have you tried a Philip Morris lately? Have you 
treated yourself to that good natural tobacco - zestful 
yet mild, hearty yet gentle, rich yet dulcet? Hmmm? 
Have you? . . . If not, light a Philip Morris soon. Light 
either end. . . . And now to our grim and gripping story. 
Picture, if you will, a still summer night. An Indian 
maid stands by a moonlit brook. Suddenly she hears a 
footstep behind her. She turns . . . 

Miss Crimscott: Oh! John Smith! You-um startle-

Dr. Magruder: Hello, Pocahontas. What are you

what-um you-um want-um? 

Dr. Magruder: I came to see the Chief. 

Miss Crimscott: You-um can't-um. Chief is leaving 
for Chicago. 

Dr. Magruder: On what track? 

_ Announcer: And speaking of tracks, stay on the 
right track with Philip Morris - the track that heads 
straight for smoking pleasure, for fun, for frolic, for 
sweet content. . . . And now back to those two cool cats, 
Emmett Twonkey Magruder and Felicia May Crimscott. 

Dr. Magruder: Well, folks, that's all for today. See 
you next week, same time, same station. 

Miss Crimscott : Stay tuned now for "William Cullen

Six men he faced, five hit safely 
and one walked. Andy Quirk came 
in to finally retire the Ephs, but 
not before Dick Ennis had rapped 
a two-run double.

McLean went the distance for 
Williams to gain credit for the 
win. The smooth senior right- 
hander scattered five hits, while 
striking out nine and walking only 

The Ephmen first scored in the 
third inning to overcome a 1-0 
AIC lead. Singles by Dick Pearon 
and Marv Weinstein along with 
two base on balls gave Coach 
Bobby Coombs' squad two runs. 

The Ephs scored twice more in 
the top of the sixth, with Ennis 
driving in one run and Power steal-

narrowed the margin to 4-2 with 
a run in their half of the inning,

Varsity Lacrosse Team Tackles Syracuse; 
Freshmen Stickmen Win Two Scrimmages 

By Ben Schenck 

Tuning up for Its opening game 
against Union Tuesday, the Wil- 
liams lacrosse team Thursday tac- 
kled one of the nation's top teams, 
Syracuse, in a controlled scrim- 
mage at Cole Field. 

The Syracuse sticlcmen, led by 
football star Jim Brown, outscor- 
ed the Ephmen 14-4. Eph captain 
Tony Brockleman attributed the 
high score to Syracuse's strength 
rather than to the Purple's weak- 

Brockleman pointed out that Sy- 
racuse has a "powerful attack" 
and that Brown, everybody's ail- 
American in football last fall, is a 
"sure bet" for national lacrosse 
honors this spring. 

Bill Miller, Bill Weaver, Jim 
Richardson and Pitt Johnson scor- 
ed for Williams. 

The freshman lacrosse team roll- 
ed over two opponents last week in 
preparation for their opener at 
Mount Hermon Wednesday. Siena 
and the Darrow School were the 
yearling's victims, losing by scores 
of 19-0 and 22-4 respectively. 

The frosh attack line of Bayard 
DeMallie, George Boynton and 
Nick Radcliff e has been pacing the 
team so far, backed by a strong 
midf ield group. Of the team, Coach 

Al Shaw commented, "We have 
some of the best stickmen we've 
had In many years."

Little Three Title 
Lost By Williams 

Williams, defending Little Three 
champion, lost the debating title 
to Wesleyan in a triangular debate 
at Wesleyan Saturday. The final 
decision, however, came only af- 
ter two successive ties were broken. 

Topic of the debating was Re- 
solved: That the U. S. Should Dis- 
continue Direct Economic Aid to 
Foreign Countries. All three col- 
leges sent an affirmative and neg- 
ative team. Williams affirmative 
was Tom Synott '58 and Toby 
Smith '60 while the negative team 
consisted of Dave Phillips '58 and 
Marc Levensteln '57. 

The winner of the Uttle Three 
crown was to be decided by won- 
and-lost scores. But Wesleyan and 
Williams tied at 3-1 so speaker 
ranks were added to break the tie. 
A second tie occurred, however, 
when both totals came to 17. The 
decision was finally made by total- 
ing Individual speaker ratings 
where Williams was on the short 
end of a 355-339 score.

Hell Week Practices 

In a recent letter issued by Dean 
Brooks to all fraternity presidents, 
rules governing pre-initiation ac- 
tivities striving to abolish the un- 
necessary, ridiculous and danger- 
ous aspects of pledge training and 
initiation were outlined. 

No attempt is made to prohibit 
practices considered advantageous 
to the individual, fraternity and 
college. Any pre-initiation practice 
which conforms to these standards

English Debaters 
Tie (?) Williams 

Jesup Hall was the scene of an 
under-attended debate between 
two touring English college men 
and two members of the Williams 
student body. 

The Englisli wit and nack for 
comedy was pitted against the or- 
dered American style of argument 
in what many witnesses considered 
one of the year's liveliest debates. 
The two English debaters, or ra- 
ther one English and one Welch, 
Marien Davis of the College of 
Wales, and Gareth Morgan of the 
University of Bristol met Marc 
Levenstein and Dave Phillips on 
the topic of direct foreign aid. 

The touring debaters arrived in 
this country in February at Hali- 
fax, "through the back door" and 
since that time have displayed 
their British humour at almost 
every major college of the East 
and Midwest. 

Even though their style of de- 
bating emphasized the extreme 
casual approach, their arguments 
were presented clearly and con- 
cisely and the audience vote was 

which accompanied the Dean's 
letter, as those which are worth- 
while in themselves — cleaning the 
house and grounds; learning col- 
lege and fraternity songs, rituals, 
etc.; assisting public or welfare, 
agencies ; performing normal house 
duties and maintaining recognized 
standards of personal conduct. 
Forbidden Activity 

Those practices which were 
deemed in the statement as in- 
tending to "exhaust, degrade, ri- 
dicule pledges or cause unneces- 
sary anxiety or result in personal 
injury, public nuisance or demand 
a serious loss of time from aca- 
demic pursuits" were forbidden. 

Dean Brooks recommended "that 
any uncertainties as to the inter- 
pretation of the rule ought to be 
clarified with the Dean of the 
college in advance. In cases of 
differences in opinion the advice 
of a special committee of the so- 
cial council and of the faculty 
student Committee on Discipline 
will be sought before a decision is 
made by the Dean." 

This action is the result of an 
earlier recommendation by the 
Student-Faculty Discipline Com- 
mittee and was approved by the 
CC and SC. 

Joint CC-SC Session 
Rejects Gargoyle Plan 

By Mack Hassler 
111 an un|)reccdonted show of confusion and student concern, a joint CC-SC session Tuesday 
iiii^lit rejected tlie Garj^oyle social inembership proposal. 

The final action was carried by a 9-3 vote of the CC, after the SC had become deadlocked 8-8 
due to a non-affiliate insurgence to obtain a vote in ojjposition to the jiroposal. 

Discussion in favor of rejection 
was led by Jack Love '58, who 
feels that sucli a plan "circum- 
vents and in many cases defeats 
total opportunity." It was also 
pointed out that the "stigma" 
would be much greater on a per- 
son rejected after the 30-day so- 
cial membership period.

JA^s Choose Rardin; 
Burgert Elected f'eep 

Terry Rardin '59 edged John Mangel '59 in a run-off election 
for tlie presidency of the 1957-58 [unior Advisers. Neither Rardin 
nor Mangel had been able to muster a majority on the first ballot 

during the Wednesday evening 

Woody Burgert was chosen as 
vice-president in the Rathskeller 
elections. Burgert's victory came 
on the third ballot, over Henry 
Foltz by a narrow margin. 

"We are well aware that our's 
is a behind-the-scenes job, and 
that we've got to be advisors ra- 
ther than leaders. We are eager 
to do the job, and plan to spend 
a good many hours in the next few 
weeks gleaning advice from our 
experienced predecessors and 
Deans Lamson and Cole," Rardin 

Lou Lustenberger, this year's 
J. A. president, added that the 
J. A.'s "can play a vital role in 
getting freshmen off to a good 
JERRY RARDIN '59 new presi- start. I know the men selected here 
dent of the Junior Advisors. tonight will do an excellent job." 

Proponents of the plan said that 
they felt something must be done 
rather than maintain the "status 
quo" of this year. The ruling con- 
sensus, however, was that this was 
a step in the wrong direction. 

Student Concern 

From the start intense student 
interest could be felt as the joint 
session opened before an audience 
of nearly 60 people. After Lou Lus- 
tenberger had called an 8-7 roll ates had formed a solid bloc to 
call of the SC in favor of the Gar- 
goyle proposal, Joe Leibowitz '57,

77% Of Amherst Students Condemn 
Present Required Chapel System 

The Amherst "Student" has an- 
nounced that 77 per cent of the 
students who participated in the 
recent poll on compulsory chapel 
rejected the present system. 

The poll also included a series 
of other questions on chapel atti- 
tudes, general alternatives and 
specific changes. Coupled with the 
rejection of the existing system 
was an 89 per cent approval of the 
idea that "advance notice be giv- 
en of chapel speakers and their 
topics" and an 85 per cent declara- 
tion that the chapel does not serve 
as a religious force. 

The Amherst administration 
charge that students do not care 
about chapel was refuted by 79 
per cent of those who participated 
in the poll. 82 per cent of the Jeffs 

denied that "the issue of compul- 
sory chapel is unimportant and 
you are indifferent to its fate." 

The poll shows that the Jeffs 
want an alternative to the present 
required chapel system, including 
voluntary attendance, and advance 
notice of the speakers. 

The chapel controversy, over 
30 years old, flared up again this 
spring in demonstrations reported 
in last week's RECORD and which 
the "Student" headlined "Spring 
Riots spark secular surge." 

A $218 fine for the damage com- 
mitted during the demonstrations 
has been added to the student tax 
for next year. Although the dam- 
age totaled $109, the administra- 
tion has doubled the fine as a 
punitive measure. 

affiliates as a social unit have a 
vote on the SC. The vote was 
granted for this one instance with 
an admonition that the non-affili- 
ates seek permanent representation 
on the SC in the future. 

With the SC now deadlocked the 
prolonged discussion over mechan- 
decision lay with the CC. After 
ics, parlimentary procedure and a 
series of proposed amendments 
and suggestions, the CC finally 
took its decisive vote to kill the

Psi, Psi U, Saint A, Deke, D Phi 
and Phi Gam. Against the pro- 
posal were Bete, Sig Phi, DU, Zete.

voted for Total Opportunity per

one or more bids for membership

The Wrap-Vp 

Out of tlie dramatic campus-wide struggle 
over tlie Gargoyle Membership plan, several 
facts emerge as significant both in themselves 
and by possibly mirroring healthy trends. 

1) The strong sentiment prevalent indi- 
cates that this campus is now closer to Total 
Opportunity than ever before. One house en- 
dorsed Total Opportunity as such while eight 
others jjassed the Gargoyle plan. Considerable 
backing for both ideas was heard in many otlier 

While the Gargoyle plan was defeated for a 
variety of reasons, it is significant that eight 
houses were willing to go into a system of this 
kind. While mechanically the status quo has been 
maintained from last fall, perhaps this campus 
is not as far from Total Opportunity as most 
people seem to beheve. 

2) Belying the fabled Williams "compla- 
cency," student interest reached near-record 
highs over this issue. Coupled with surprising 
interest shown last week over the College Com- 
munications system, it becomes apparent that 
Williams students can— and do— take an interest 
in their government, at least when issues strike as 
close to home as these do. 

3) Non- Affiliate concern reached the point 
that they demanded and received their due rep- 
resentation on the Social Council. Although 
doubtful, it is hoped that this signifies a change 
in Non-AffiUate thinking and that they continue 
to utilize their representative rights on the SC. 

A spirited controversy is good for any cam- 
pus. If this latest one leads to tlie realization of 
any of these trends, we will be first to wish for 
many more of them.

Letter To The Editor 

To the Record: _ 

The joint CC-SC meeting Tuesday wit- 
nessed the burial of the last of the Total Oppor- 
tunity "systems". The defeat of the Gargoyle plan 
for social memberships points up an obvious, but 
to my mind, significant observation. 

No system can be devised by a student 
governing body that will force all the fraterni- 
ties to cooperate in an effort to extend invitations 
for membership to all rejected rushees. It is 
wrong for an authority outside the fraternities 
to hand down a system that will compel every- 
one to herald in 100 per cent opportunity im- 

Total Opportunity, to be a success, not only 
entails invitations for membership to tlie reject- 
ed rushees, but also a positive desire on tlie part 
of the house to include tlie recipient of their in- 
vitation in tlieii- pledge class. 

This is not to say that Total Opportunity 
will never be achieved at Williams, but if it is 
to be achieved at all, 1 feel it must be through 
action from the houses tiiemselves. A house can 
still give its president the power to select one of 
the rejected rushees for a trial social membership, 
in the hope that the man can be successfully 
assiinilated in one monUr. Also, a house may still 
extend an outright bid to a rejected rushee in 
the post-ruslring session. 

Eight houses voted in favor of tlie Gargoyle 
plan. It would take only half of those houses to 
absorb next year's rejected rushees. It will take 
a little sacrifice, courage, and above all leader- 
ship, but it can be done. The GC-SC can not 
hand Total Opportunity to you on a silver plat- 
ter. If you want it you can get it. But if "Total 
Opportunity does not seem to justify the sacri- 
fice, or if the idea of leadership is too frighten- 
ing, we should stop kidding ourselves with our 
own high-sounding plu'ases and discard them 
once and for all. 

Larry Nilsen, '58 

To the Record: 

With respect to Tuesday nights SC-CC 
meeting, there are two points which I would 
like to stress. First, altliough the Gargoyle report 
was rejected, the prospect of Total Opportmiity 
in the future was not rejected, and it appears 
that it is closer to realization Uiaii it has ever 
been in the past. The Report was rejected by 
some because the plan itself was felt to be in- 
sufficient. It was rejected by others because tliey 
felt that its adoption would hinder more pro- 
gressive legislation in future years. 

At least two houses that voted against tlie 
proposal have done more to achieve "Total Op- 
portunity than any of the houses tiiat voted for 
the proposal— they have agreed within the house 
to extend bids to at least one individual who 
finds himself with no invitations. Thus, the re- 
jection of the report is misleadmg because cer- 
tain houses have transcended the scope of the 

Secondly, although the non-affiliates have 
not chosen to sit on the Social Council since the 
Garfield Club was disbanded, they were per- 
mitted to cast a vote and thereby voice disap- 
proval of the plan. 

This then brings up the issue of whether 
the Non-affiUates should organize (and I am 
well aware that this is a very delicate issue). 
There was a great deal of interest on their part 
at the meeting, and there wall be interest in the 
future on a vtdde variety of issues. I commend 
and respect their action taken at the meeting, 
and I wdsh they would give serious considera- 
tion to action or inaction in regards to organiza- 
tion and representation on the Social Council. 

Stephen B. Frost, '58 

To the Record: 

The charge is often heard that the non-affil- 
iates are a disinterested group on campus, The 
circumstances surrounding Tuesday's SC-CC 
meeting proved clearly that this is not the case 
and that the non-affiliate group is made up of 
individuals who are keenly interested in cam- 
pus affairs. 

The fact, however, is that they do not wish 
to express their views in a formal, organized 
manner and prefer to remain unorganized as a 
group. It is my hope and the hope of many others 
tnat they will not organize on this campus until 
Total Opportunity is achieved, since it is only 
Total Opportunity and not some unsatisfac- 
tory compromise that will solve the main and 
obvious social ills existing on this campus. 

The example set by Theta Delta Chi as a 
forward-looking institution is one that should be 
followed by Gargoyle, the College Council and 
the Social Council. Until they do, the non-affil- 
iates should not— and will not— organize on this

Living up to pre-season predic- 
tions, the Freshman lacrosse team 
overpowered Mt. Hermon by a 
score of 15-5. Ball control and 
strong defense kept the opponents 
on their own ground and the sev-

standing offensive factors. 

Williams jumped into an early 
4-0 lead and held command of

In the second half Mt. Hermon 
threw up a zone defense which 
slowed the Williams attack down 
to four goals in the half. Main- 
slay of the defense was Win Healy 
and playing his first full game 
Denny Fuller cleared the ball 
well from his goalie position. Also 
scoring for Williams were DeMal- 
lie, 2, Ratcliffe, 2, McCann, 2, Fite, 
2, and Cutler 1, Penalties were low 
but manager Sandy Smith was able 
to help the Williams cause by ne-

Eph Lacrosse Team 
Defeats Union, 13-5 

By Chuck Dunkel 

Scoring in all four periods, the 
Williams lacrosse team dumped 
Union, 13 to 5, In the opening 
game of the 1957 season. 

The Ephmen dominated the 
play from the start, jumping off 
iO a 6-0 lead at the end of the 
first quarter. Williams led 7-2 at 
the halt, and added two more goals 
in the third period before outscor- 
ing the Dutchmen 4-3 in the fi- 
nal stanza. 

Co-captain Tony Brockleman 
paced the well-balanced Purple at- 
tack with three goals and an as- 
sist, Jim Richardson added two 
goals and an assist, and Bill Wea- 
ver had two goals. Nine Ephmen 
took part in the scoring assault. 

Ephs Controlled Ball 

"We controlled the ball most of 
the game," commented Coach Jim 
Ostendarp, "but Union was not 
as strong as in the past." He add- 
ed, "Our midfield functioned 
smoothly and was well co-ordinat- 
ed with the attack, which showed 
improvement as a unit. However, 
we showed apparent weaknesses 
in spots on defense, and we must 
improve in that respect." 

The starting line-up against 
Union was: Attack, Dave Andrew, 
Bill Weaver, and Pit Johnson; 
Midfield, Tony Brockleman, Dick 
Lisle, and Dave HiUiard; Defense, 
Joe Perrott, Tony Fergueson and 
Jim Smith; Goalie, Jock Jankey. 

In looking to the Tufts game 
Saturday, Ostendarp emphasized 
that the Jumbos will have a lot 
of hustle and will be tough. "Their 
scrimmage with Syracuse went a- 
bout the same as ours", he com- 
mented, "and this game should 
be a true test of our strength."

tie Tuesday, and Williams went 
on to a 7-3 victory over RPI on 
Weston Field. On April 24 the 
Ephmen suffered their first loss

Williams came back to tie the 
score on a walk, an error, singles 
by Power and Ennis, and a double 
steal. In the fifth. Power was safe 
on an error and Ennis doubled be- 
fore McAlaine slammed a line 
drive between the left and center 
fielders to clear the bases. 

Coach Bobby Coombs' squad 
added one more in the seventh on 
a single by McAlaine and Fearon's 
triple to left. Bob Newey went the 
distance for the Ephs, scattering 
six hits. 

Against Middlebury, the Ephs 
scored all their runs in the fifth 
inning:, on Kagan's single, Marr's 
double, a triple to left center by 
Flood and Power's sacrifice fly.

7 Dartmouth Houses 
Admit Discrimination 

Seven fraternity houses on the 
Dartmouth campus "admit" hav- 
ing discrimination clauses which 
will force them to disassociate 
from their nationals by 1960 un- 
less corrected before then, the 
college newspaper, the "Dart- 
mouth," reported last week. 

According to the final report of 
an undergraduate Discrimination 
committee, three additional houses 
have practices open to question.

"The seminar program doesn't 
seem to give the same feeling of 
accomplishment to the student 
that the individual and tangible 
thesis does," was the concurrent 
opinion of the first two division 
departmental chainnen interview- 
ed by the RECORD. 

Professor Lawrence W. Beals. 
cliairman of the philosophy de- 
partment, and Professor Robert C. 
L. Scott, acting chairman of the 
history department, both express- 
ed the opinion that the thesis is 
still the best type of honors pro- 
gram in their respective fields. 

Professor Beals 

"I'm not tossing my hat up over 
the new program," said Professor 
Beals. "The seminar, though stim- 

ulating and exciting, doesn't really 
give the honors student the same 
feeling of accomplishment that the 
thesis does when the student ap- 
praises his work. The thesis is more 
tangible evidence of the work a 
student puts into the honors pro- 

Beals stated that it was hard 
for him to comprehend the value 
of the seminars, although he did 
feel that it was too early to judge 
the success of the program fairly. 
"The seminar course doesn't seem 
to have any real distinction over 
a regular course offered at Wil- 
liams, except that the students in 
the course have higher grades. It 
is going to be hard to give the sem- 
inar course the distinction it needs 
to be successful." 

"I may be sticking my neck out," 
said Beals, "but the seminar .seems 
to be a way to induce lazier, gift- 

ed students into the honors pro- 

Professor Scott 

Professor Scott also feels that 
it is too early to judge the suc- 
cess of the seminars, but he at- 
tributes their value to the wider 
range of subjects dealt with ma- 
turely in the course of the pro- 
gram. "The thesis, on the other 
hand," he said, "provides a kind 
of concentration and depth that 
no seminar can approach." 

"The thesis is particularly a- 
daptable to history, for a student 
can delve without limit into his 
chosen topic. Because of tliis and 
the feeling of 'creativity' that the 
student experiences upon writing 
a thesis, I think that the majority 
of honors students in history will 
continue to write theses," Prof. 
Scott declared.

Prof. Rudolph Awarded Fellowship 
For Studies In History Of Education 

Professor Frederick Rudolph, assi,stant professor of history, 
has been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship for a 12-month period 
beginning July 1, 1958. 

The fellowship is for "studies in the history of higher education 
in the United States," and Mr. Rudolph exjiects to spend the year 
in Washington D. C. doing research at the Library of Congress. 

Made by the John Solomon Gug- 
genheim Foundation, the fellow- 
ship is one of 344 awards totaling 
$1,500,000— the largest total of 
grants ever made by the founda- 
tion in one year. The fellowships 
are granted to persons of unusu- 
al capacity for scholarly research, 
demonstrated by the previous pub- 
lication of contributions to know- 
ledge of high merit, and to per- 
sons of unusual and proven crea- 
tive ability in the fine arts. 

Mark Hopkins 

Two years ago Mr. Rudolph's 
book, "Mark Hopkins and the 
Log", was published. It is a case 
study of American higher educa- 
tion of the 1836-72 period which 
grew out of Mr. Rudolph's doc- 
toral dissertation at Yale. 

At that time, 1953, it was se- 
lected for the $500 John Addison 
Porter Prize for literary and schol- 
arly excellence, as well as the 
George Washington Egleston Prize 
in American History for Its con- 
tribution to historical Icnowledge. 

DOLPH, Fellowship Recipient 

Having taught at WiUiams since 
1946, Mr. Rudolph graduated from 
the college in 1942. While here he 
was editor of the RECORD and 
President of the Sigma Phi house. 

CC Rejects Plan 
To End Overlaps 
Between CC, SC 

After a heated 45 minute debate 
the College Council gave only half- 
way acceptance last Monday to the 
Gargoyle proposal aimed at dif- 
fusion of opportunities for leader- 
ship on the Williams campus. 

The CC voiced almost unanimous 
approval of the first clause of the 
Gargoyle plan, which prevents any 
student from holding more than 
one important college office. This 
clause will be voted on as an a- 
mendment to the college consti- 
tution by the student body next 

In a close vote, however, the 
Council killed the second clause of 
the proposal. This would have pre- 
vented any student from serving on 
both the College and Social Coun- 

The Attack 

Charles Gilchrist '58 led the at- 
tack against abolishing .joint CC- 
SC memberships. "Either one or 
the other would by nature become 
a secondary organization," he said. 

Affirming his "faith in democ- 
racy," he pointed out that the 
plan, whicli suggested choosing 
fraternity presidents before CC e- 
lections, would impair a class' 
right to choose whom they please 
for Council membership. "You 
can't legislate what tlie voters 
w'ant," he said. 

Plans Would Convert 
Houses Into Dorms 

Twenty-two students today jiublished a jiroposal for a 
social system to replace fraternities on tliis cam|)us. 

The group, strictly self-appointed and voluntary, stressed 
the new plan would retain all the '|)ositive advantages of pre 
fraternities" but would abolish what the signers call a "tiine- 
suming, unfair and outdated social system." 

The proposal is contained in a 
special pamphlet being distributed " 

throughout the campus and sub- 
mitted as an open letter to Presi- 
dent James P. Baxter III and the 

Retain Advantages 

The signers declare that their 
new plan would retain most of the 
"good qualities" of fraternities, 
such as decentralized eating, intra- 
mural competition, tlie experience - 
of .self-government and the op- 
portunity to form close and lasting

Questionnaire Delayed 

The College Council Commit- 
tee on Discrimination an- 
nounces that the questionnaire 
originally prepared for distri- 
bution to the fraternity mem- 
bers Tuesday will be postponed 
indefinitely. After testing the 
qi estionnaire on a small group 
of students, enough flaws were 
found to advise not using it. 
All other results of the com- 
mittee's work, however, will be 
released in a report to the stu- 
dent body early next month. 

Several criticisms of fraternities 
v.'ere made, which the group feels 
would be eliminated under tlieir 
plan. They include: "1) Fraterni- 
ties misdirect too much time and 
energy; 2) Fraternities lead to un- 
fair standards, cruel to both up- 
perclas,smen and freshmen, and 
a shattering rejection for a small 
minority; 3) Fraternities are tra- 
ditionally undemocratic (referring 
to discrimination); 

"4) Fraternities destroy college 
unity by splitting Williams into 
15 socially-competing units and by 
isolating freshmen; 5) Pi'aterni- 
ties submerge the individual be- 
neath the narrow standards inher- 
ent in such a system; 6) Fraterni- 
ties place severe financial strain 
on many members." 
The Plan 

Basically the plan calls for con- 
verting present fraternity houses 
into college dormitories. Every 
student would then be a member 
of one of 15 social "units," a unit 
being composed of one of the pre- 
sent fraternity houses and two or 
three dormitory entries.

Mardi-Gras Begins Houseparties; 
Dance Features Eberle^ T. Wilson 

By Mack Hassler 

With scarcely forty-eight hours 
remaining before the vanguard of 
lovelies appear over the mountains, 
Williams men are growing rest- 

All eyes are especially pealed for 
the avowed leader of this buxom 
brigade, Paula George, featured 
all-female vocalist with Ray Eb- 
erle's orchestra, who plans to move 
her bulwarks into Baxter Hall for 
Friday night's 9-1 seige. 

She will have to stage a pro- 
vocative campaign, though, to 
hold everyone's attention for the 
dance boasts two other fine per- 
formers. On the same stage will 
be vocalist and bandleader Ray 
Eberle whose band has appeared 
often on television and in promi- 
nent hotels around New York. 

Meanwhile, in the freshman 

lounge downstairs, appealing to 
the primitive rhythms of man will 
be Jazz specialist Teddy Wilson. 

Sugar-Snow Party 

Reviving a tradition which 
dates back to the time when 
Indians populated the Berk- 
shires, Albert J. Ditman of Ob- 
long Road in WlUiamstown will 
give a "sugar on snow" party 
Saturday from 1-5 p.m. 

Maple syrup placed on snow 
will make a substance which 
Mr. Ditman called "the most 
delicious candy that's ever 
been made." Pickles will be 
served to offset the sweet candy, 
along with doughnuts and cof- 
fee. Admission, which goes to 
charity, is 50c for adults. 

Although he has gained his repu- 
tation as a jazz man, Wilson says 
he "gauges the success of a dance 
by the number of people dancing." 
All of which goes to suggest a 
pleasant spring evening in Baxter 
Hall Friday. 

New Saturday Night 

Pi-iday night is just the begin- 
ning, though, for Jack Love's '58, 
committee has done an imagina- 
tive job. Unique this year will be 
the all-college Mardi Gras Sat- 
urday night. 

Curiosity is mounting over what 
will be offered by the various 
booths, and since gambling is al- 
lowed some of them should be more 
than interesting. 

For Ephmen, the daylight hours 
of the weekend present no prob- 
lem. There is a wide variety of 
athletic events featured.

Fraternities Should Stay 

The proposed plan to abolish fraternities 
appears totally unrealistic and impractical. 

First, however, it is important to remember 
that the authors are just 22 individuals, acting 
on their own and with no connection with any 
student organization or the administration. Al- 
though they worked on their plan for over two 
months, the signers themselves admit they do not 
expect any concrete results in the near future. 

Apart from the relative merits of the pro- 
posed system itself, enacting the plan would 
prove almost an impossible task. 1) The college 
could never afford to buy the fraternity houses 
and it is doubtful that tlie fraternities would do- 
nate the houses to the school. 2) The college 
would not be able to offset the almost certain 
reduction in alumni contributions. In too many 
cases fraternities serve as the main tie between 
alumni and college and abolishing fraternities 
would anger thousands of grads. 

On the other hand, however, this report 
also has its advantages. 

First, it proves Williams is still a liberal arts 
institution. Students still have the ambition, cou- 
rage and freedom to criticize intelligently the 
hallowed fraternity system, which on this cam- 
pus is equivalent to cursing Mark Hopkins. 

But the most significant aspect is that the 
creation of such a report suggests there are def- 
inite weaknesses in our fraternity system. If 22 
men, several of them student leaaers, felt strong- 
ly enough about these flaws to go to this extreme, 
what they say should be carefully considered. 
Many of their specific criticisms (see page one) 
are quite valid. 

Although the proposed new social system 
could never become a reahty here, the report 
does indicate that our present fraternity system 
is far from perfect.

Library Survey 

Ed. Note: The librart/ is an intefiral part of Wil- 
liams life. Most Williavis students seem to take it 
for fi^ranted. Like most other t/itn^s on this cam- 
pus, however, it is not perfect. The RECORD 
liere attempts a realistic evaluation of the li- 
brary's umin problems and forwards possible 

By John Phillips 
A library can function smoothly only with 
adequate administrative personnel and full co- 
operation from its reading public: the Williams 
College lacks both. 

Stetson Library is at least as good as any 
small-college establishment in the nation. It has 
a vast collection of manuscripts, periodicals, and 
other reference materials, plus 260,000 volumes 
dealing with practically all imaginable topics. Yet 
Stetson Library fails to furnish its public with 
top service. The failure can be traced directly to 
the serious shortage of administrative manpower. 

A reserve system including the advantages 
of open stacks and overnight loans requires a 
large and efficient library staff. Stetson has a 
well-trained staff, but with only twelve mem- 
bers, some of whom are part-time student work- 
ers, maximum administrative efficiency is unat- 

According to Mr. Donald Cary, acting li- 
brarian during Mr. Wright's sabbatical leave, a 
minimum of six staff members is required at all 
times just to keep the library operating during its 
72 and one half hour week. This means that even 
twelve full-time workers would be insufficient 
because none of the filing and sorting which is 
so vital to library quality would be lifted from 
the shoulders of the regular operating staff. 

Of course, the personnel shortage makes any 
extension of library hours impossible, except per- 
haps an extra hour for the Lower Reading Room. 
Tlie staff is simply too small to cope with the 
problems it faces now, not to mention longer 

The staff could, however, cope with its pro- 
blems far more effectively if it had full coopera- 
tion from its reading public. A basic set of rules 
has been designed to make the system work, but 
college students and the public at large flagrant- 
ly violate those rules. 

Bound periodicals disappear mysteriously 
from Tier III and turn up two weeks later in a 
back carrel of Tier VIII. Students neglect to re- 
turn overnight loans, making them unavailable 
to others who need them. Even more disturbing, 
books disappear from the stacks and turn up 
months later, if at all. 

The public is simply not cooperating to 
make the current library system function smooth- 
ly, and until the reading public becomes more 
responsible, the library can never reach top ef- 
ficiency operation. 

Hence, despite the library's vast material 
assets, personnel shortage and public irrespon- 
sibility are combining to hinder library efficien- 
cy. Both of these things could be easily remedied, 
by increasing the staff and instituting an honor 
system for library users. 

Personal Comments 

rushing. Some houses have small delegations and are unable to j)ut 
on an elaborate rush. Gargoyle should encourage the freshmen to 
consider supposedly "second rate" houses next fall. There is no 
reason why a "good guy" should feel compelled to set his heart 
on one of the supposedly "ton" houses. They should consider the 
contributions which they could make to the "weaker" fraternities. 

In a few cases houses stand to face severe financial danger— 
if not extinction-unless they get full delegations next fall. The 
freshman class-more than any other-has the sjnrit of "Total Op. 
portunity. One way tliey can help to bring it about is to volun- 
tarily even out tlie dishibution of its "good Kuys" among houses. 

Thus Gargoyle can still help gain Total Opportunity. They 
should encourage houses to work out individual "pick up" plan.s. 
And they should encourage freshmen to consider all houses. 


SOME QUESTIONS: Do fraternities take up so much time 
that they seriously ham|5er the educational jnocess? How much 
less expensive would Williams be if there were no fraternities? 
Can the Williams social system exist without fraternities? What 
possible alternative to the fraternity system could work at Wil- 
liams? (See page six)

Two Suggestions 

By Stephen C. Rose 

The recently rejected Gargoyle plan for so- 
cial membership represented a sincere effort to 
gain Total Opportunity. It was defeated precise- 
ly because tne C. .C. did not feel that social 
membership was the true avenue to Total Op- 
portunity. What is Gargoyle to do, now that its 
plan has been rejected? I feel that it can per- 
form two very important functions. 

The Theta Delt house recently made a 
promise to pick up at least one rejected rushee 
next fall. Gargoyle should use its prestige to en- 
courage otlier houses to follow the same course 
of action. In some cases houses are restricted by 
written or unwritten racial clauses. Such houses 
could still help Total Op)Dortunity by pledging to 
pick up rejected rushees provided that, in doing 
so, they would not be placed in a precarious po- 
sition with their nationals. 

The race problem is thorny. Nationals can 
thwart the good intentions of local houses. But 
this does not mean that such houses cannot help 
... if they have the spirit. Gargoyle should at- 
tempt to infuse this spirit in the individual 

The second thing that Gargoyle should 
do is help to eliminate house stratification.

On Canons 


(Author of "Barefoot Boy With Chttk," etc.) 


Today, as everyone knows, is the forty-sixth anni- 
versary of the founding of Gransmire College for Women 
which, as everyone knows, was the first Progressive 
Education college in the United Statos. 

Well do I recollect the tizzy in the academic world 
when Gransmire first opened its portals! What a buzz 
there was, what a brouhaha in faculty common rooms, 
what a rattling of teacups, when Dr. Agnes Thudd Siga- 
foos, first president of Gransmire, lifted her shaggy head 
and announced defiantly, "This here is no .stuffy, old- 
fashioned college. This here, by gum, is Progressive 
Education. We will teach the student, not the course. 
There will be no marks, no exams, no requirements. We 
will break the iron mold of orthodoxy, hey." 

Well sir, forward-looking maidens all over the country 
cast off their fetters and came rushing to New Hampshire 
to enroll at Gransmire. Here they found freedom. They 
broadened their vistas. They lengthened their horizons. 
They unstopped their bottled personalities. They roamed 
the campus in togas, leading ocelots on leashes. 

And, of course, they smoked Philip Morris. (I say 
"of course." Why do I say "of course"? I say "of course" 
because it is a matter of course that anyone in search 
of freedom should naturally turn to Philip Morris, for 
Philip Morris is a natural smoke, with no filter to get 
in the way of its true tobacco taste.) 

But all was not Philip Morris and ocelots. There was 
work and study too — not in the ordinary sense, for there 
were no formal classes. Instead there was a broad 
approach to enlarging each girl's potentials. 

lSKe Ue course cdUed dasic ll^otor ^HiU^ 

Take, for example, the course called B.M.S. (Basic 
Motor Skills). B.M.S. was divided into L.D. (Lying 
Down), S.U. (Standing Up) and W. (Walking). Once 
the student had mastered L.D. and S.U., she was taught 
to W. — but not just to W. any old way! No, sir! She 
was taught to W. with poise, dignity, bearing ! To incul- 
cate a sense of balance in the girl, she began her exercises 
by walking with a suitcase in each hand. (One girl, Mary 
Ellen Dorgenicht, got so good at it that today she is bell 
captain at the Dinkler-Plaza Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia.) 

When the girls had walking under their belts, they 
were allowed to dance. Again no formality was imposed. 
They were simply told to fling themselves about in any 
way their impulses dictated, and believe you me, it was 
quite an impressive sight to see them go bounding into 
the woods with their togas flying. (Several later joined 
the U. S. Forestry Service.) 

There was also a lot of finger painting and gourd 
rattling and sculpture with coat hangers and all like that, 
and soon the fresh wind of Progressivism came whistling 
out of Gransmire to blow the ancient dust of pedantry 
off curricula everywhere, and today, thanks to the pio- 
neers at Gransmire, we are all free, every man-jack of us. 

If you are ever in New Hampshire, be sure to visit 
the Gransmire campus. It is now a tannery. 

CMax Shulman, 1967 

And be lure to Itght a PMHp Morrii when you vi$it Gransmire, 
or anyuhere etie for that matter, becaute Philip Morris is 
alivays a naturally perfect companion and brings you this

"Whether a student takes the 
thesis or the seminar route to the 
honors degree is a matter of in- 
dividual Interest and aptitude. The 
value is therefore individual just 
as the interest is individual." 

This thought was expressed by 
Vincent M. Barnett, A. Barton 
Hepburn, Professor of Government 
and chairman of the political sci- 
ence department. Associate Pro- 
fessor, William Gates, acting 
chairman of the economics de- 
partment shared Professor Har- 
nett's views. 

As have all professors so far in- 
terviewed. Professor Baraett felt 
that it was too early to judge the 
success, but added that "One of 
our troubles in the past was that 
there was a hard and fast rule, 
everyone taking honors had to 
write a thesis. This took the de- 
sire away from those gifted stu- 
dents who did not want to spe- 
cialize early in their career." 

Good Alternative 

Professor Barnett went on to 
say, "We shouldn't eliminate the 
thesis entirely, but this new alter- 
native should fill a need that I 
think has been wanting fulfil- 
ment for quite some time. It is in 
keeping with the liberal arts tra- 

"The seminar provides a real 
intellectual challenge just as the 
thesis does. However, we can't 
have blanket rules for individual 
matters, that is why I feel the 
seminar alternative makes a great 
improvement over the old pro- 
gram," concluded Barnett. 

Professor Gat«s said "We're not 
satisfied yet. We still are in the 
experimental stage. It is even too 
early to know what the weaknesses 

Gates also expressed the hope 
that the seminar won't eliminate 
the thesis entirely. "The thesis is 
best for that individual who is 
'fired up' but for those individuals 
who do not have an exceptional 
grasp of the field and a burning 
desire to delve deeply into a spe- 
cialized area, the seminar is by 

far the best route. It is all a mat- 
ter of the individual." 

"In the past we've had trouble 
with our honors students choosing 
a topic too late just because they 
didn't have the desire or the 
knowledge necessary to get going 
on a thesis. Therefore, the new 
seminar will unquestionably bene- 
fit and attract more men."

Social Plan 

Continued from Page 1, Col. 4 

Incoming freshmen would be ar- 
bitrarily assigned to social units, 
where they would stay for four 
years. They would be allowed only 
one change of unit. All freshmen 
would eat in the Student Union 
but would enjoy social privileges 
in their units. 

All others would eat in the units. 

Members of all four classes would 

live in all dorms, with some juniors 

and seniors living in their units. 

The Signers 

Of the 22 signers, 14 are frater- 
nity men from eight different 
houses. Included are : Dee Gardner 
'57, former CO president; Duane 
Yee '57, senior class president; 
Bill Scoble '57, former JA presi- 
dent; Pete Elbow '57 and Bob 
Leinbach '57, past JAs; Sandy 
Fetter '58, (WOC President), Jim 
Becket '58, Chip Wright '58, and 
Ted Wynne '58, all present JAs; 
WCC Chairman Phil McKean '58; 
Jim Mabie '57, Eric Butler '57, 
Bob Adolph '57, Tony Smith '57, 
Reece Trimmer '57, Bob Beebe '57, 
Nick Wright '57, Hugh Clark '57, 
Skip Cole '57, Dick Ennis '57, Joe 
Leibowitz '57 and Don Morse '58. 

Mabie, Gardner and Yee are 
Gargoyles. Elbow, Adolph and 
Leinbach are Phi Betes. 

The plan represents the pro- 
duct of over two month's concen- 
trated work. Extended research 
and many hours of effort went in- 
to composing the proposal, a group 
spokesman said, who added that 
it resulted from several seniors de- 
ciding that they would like to re- 
place the present social system 
with a better one and who wanted 
to make their feelings known be- 
fore leaving Williams.

Williams Undergrads ' 
And The "Law School" 

Ed. Note: This is the second in the RECORD series considerini^ 
the topic "Williams and the Graduate School", a studif of the suc- 
cess of Williams students in gaining acceptance for post-graduate 
work. The next installment will deal with chances of getting into 
himness school. 

By Dave Skaff 

Every year 40 to 45 Williams underj^raduates seek admission 
to various law schools in the United States. Very few of them fail 
to gat placed in good law schools. 

The Recokd, in interviews with Vincent Barnett, A. Barton 
Hejiburn Professor of Government and ex-prelaw adviser and 
George Connelly, Professor of Public Speaking and present adviser 
to jjre-law students, found Williams very successful in placing 
undergraduate law as]jirants. 

The Educational Testing Service Law School Admission Test 
which all pre-law students are required to take is an important 
step on the road to acceptance to law school. How well does Wilr 
Uains score on these tests'i* While Professor Connelly declined to 
offer any of the highly confidential figures, he did comment tliat 
"over the last ten years Williams has done better than the national 
average by far and has shown a high aptitude." 

Of tlie 40 to 45 that apply each year to various law schools, 
tlie majority apply to Harvard Law School. Most of these are ad- 
mitted. Last year 14 undergraduates were accepted at Harvard. 
One member of the Class of '56 went to Yale which has a small 
law enrollment. Usually, the most sought after law schools are 
Yale, Columbia and lately, the University of Virginia in that order 
after Harvard. Other applicants are scattered widely and often in- 
clude Michigan, Pennsylvania and Cornell. 

Both Professor Barnett and Professor Connelly pointed out 
the availabilty of a $1000 scholarship to the University of Chicago 
Law School especially for Williams men that often goes unused. 
It was last awarded two years ago. Professors Barnett and Con- 
nelly, in view of the large midwestern enrollment at Williams, be- 
lieved that it was unfortunate that prelaw students did not take 
advantage of this scholarship to "a fine school". It is awarded on' 
the basis of scholastic attainment, and every year there are always 
ehgible candidates for the stipend tliat never apply. 

Professor Barnett also pointed out that there are many more 
scholarships now available for law students. This is especially true 
for first year students where a lack of scholarships had been pre- 
valent for many years. 

Currently the trend for law school ho])efuls seems to feature 
a wide variety of majors. In the past law schools had courses in 
the social studies such as Economics, Political Science, and His- 
tory. This stand has been substantially modified and no parti- 
cular majors are now recommended. Also, many law schools, fol- 
lowing a move by Yale, now offers many courses in the liberal 
arts such as psychology in addition to the standard law curricu- 

Speaking from previous experience. Professor Barnett said, 
Williams graduates on the whole have done very well in getting 
admitted and are doing well in law school." He mentioned that a 
solid B average was almost a guarantee of being admitted to law 
school and that he had known students with C or C plus averages 
to get in. However, he added that competition is getting stirrer 
and that admission to a school becomes more difficult each year.

Once upon a time (wliich is the way most stories begin — ^and who's 
to argue with success?) there was an argument about some do-it-yourself 
venison . . . and a nice nobleman became a good Hood. 

Trading charcoal gray for Lincoln Green wasn't easy— Robin had a 
good thing working for him before he started tramping the woods. 
But, with a philosophical sigh, he gathered a crew called the Merry 
Men, and began "exacting tribute' ' from tyrannical King John. Actually, 
he was stealing the old boy blind . . . but King John was pretty much 
of a crumb, and most of the loot went to the poor, so nobody really 
cared. Besides — the Sheriff of Nottingham couldn't catch RobinI 

Well, one day, when things were kind of slow, in pranced Maid Marian 
— alongside of whom Cleopatra would have looked like a Poland China. 

"What's for lunch, Robbie?" inquired Marian. "Cream of Nowhere, 
DoU," replied R. H. "Have a bowl?" 

The rest of the story is history — the Merry Men always served 
Budweiser with their meals, and what girl could resist hospitality like 
that? Marian became Mrs. Hood . . . and Robin? He hung up his bow 
and arrows and is now the Budweiser salesman for Sherwood and 
points north. (Sometimes, he points south.)

Anti-Frat Group Plan 

Excerpts from letter sent today 
to President Baxter and Trustees. 

• * • 

We recognize that fraternities 
were once meinlngful and that 
they had a useful and rightful 
place on the Williams campus, but 
changing conditions and attitudes 
have made it difficult to maintain 
their past heritage and traditional 

The many plans recently pro- 
posed or tested, such as total n;sh- 
Ing, cannot penetrate to the roots 
of the problems unless more sig- 
nificant changes in our present 
social system are made. 

We met for the express purpose 
of replacing fraternities with a so- 
cial plan that will preserve their 
good qualities such as decentraliz- 
ed eating, intra-mural competition, 
the experience of self-government 
and the opportunity to form close 
and lasting friendships.

Every student will be a member 
of one of fifteen social units. 
These will be owned by tlie college, 
but will operate in many respects 
like the present fraternities. Each 
unit will center around one of the 
present fraternity buildings, but 
will also have a permanent tie 
with two or three dormitory en- 
tries. Thus every student in a dor- 
mitory will be affiliated with a so- 
cial unit according to the entry in 
which he lives. 

Freshmen will live in all the col- 
lege's ten dormitories and be con- 
nected to a unit according to en- 
try. However, to establish some 
coherence and unity as a class, 
freshmen will eat in the Student 
Union. They will have only other 
freshmen as roommates, but they 
will no longer be confined to the 
intellectual and social isolation of 
the present freshman quad. 

All upperclassmen will eat In 
the main building, or "house," of 

their social unit just as the upper- 
class members of a fraternity now 
do. Many juniors and all seniors 
who so desire will live in the house 
of their social unit as at present. 

These social units will be auton- 
omous. They will be granted self- 
government by the college to the 
same degree that fraternities are 
now granted it. Yet there will be 
no interference in the internal af- 
fairs of any unit through the ac- 
tion of any national organization. 
Eacli unit will democratically e- 
lect its own officers. 

The incoming freshmen will be 
assigned to a room in one of the 
college dormitories. His preference 
cuncerning price, size of suite and 
possible room-mates will be taken 
into account as it now is. Rooms 
specially designated for freshmen 
will be scattered judiciously so 
that each will have both upper- 
classmen and other freshmen near 
him. He will have social privileges 
at the house of which he is a mem- 
ber, but he will eat with his class 
at the Student Union, where there 
also will be various all-freshman 
social events throughout the year. 
House loyalty will be balanced with 
class loyalty and college loyalty. 

A freshman wil remain a mem- 
ber of his original social unit for 
four years. Yet since incompata- 
bilities ai'e bound to arise occas- 
ionally, he will be allowed to 
change his affiliation once during 
these four years. He can malce 
such a request in May of any year, 
but his choice will be limited by 
available vacancies. 

One could not move to a house 
with a full quota, and inequalities 
due to people leaving college un- 
expectedly will be made up with 
tlie next class of incoming fresh- 
men. There could not, therefore, 
be a mass exodus from or influx 
to any one house; in fact the ac- 
tual number of such changes will 

be small once the plan is put into 
effect. Thus, these social urlts 
will have real unity and spirit. 
At any given time, a house miglit 
well have a definable character to 
it. But each house will always be 
evolving with its annual quota of 
arbitrarily assigned freshmen. A 
house can never become irrevoc- 
ably "typed" or "stratified." 

Each house will conduct Its own 
room-drawing every spring for tlie 
rooms both in its house and in its 
affiliated entries. Priority would 
probably go according to class, so 
seniors and some juniors would 
live at the house, and the rest 
would live in rooms surrounding 
those designated for next year's 
incoming freshmen. A few persons 
might prefer to have room-mates 
who are not in their house. For 
these people, two dormitories 
cWest College and Greylock, high 
and low priced) might be open to 
members of all houses. 

Since the quality of rooms clear- 
ly varies, there will be at least 
two prices for dormitory rooms. 
Each social unit will have an en- 
try of high-priced and an entry 
of low-priced rooms. Costs will 
be slightly higher in the house, 
yet considerably cheaper than the 
sum of room and dues at the pre- 
sent fraternity — not to mention 
initiation fees, etc. The arrange- 
ment will not work against schol- 
arship holders, since these stu- 
dents receive college aid for their 
room costs. 

The college will assume the cost 
ot maintaining the houses. For a 
number of reasons, operating the 
units will be considerably less cost- 
ly than maintaining fraternities. 
1.) In 1957 fraternities paid a to- 
tal of $30,603 in local taxes. As 
college-owned plants, the units 
will not be taxed. 2.) Most of the 
initiation fees and in some cases 
part of dues now do not go to the 
upkeep of fraternities but to the 
national organization. 3.) Expen- 
ses for operation, upkeep and re- 

pairs will be considerably lower 
through the efficiency of central 
buying and the use of the Build- 
ing and Orounds Department. 
Those houses not in outlying areas 
could tap the steam-heating sys- 
tem at tremendous savings. 

Even without these advantages, 
most present fraternities are en- 
tirely self-sufficient for normal op- 
erational costs. The cost of major 
repairs or improvements that has 
been subsidized from time to time 
by fraternity alumni will also be 
lower for the above reasons; but to 
some extent, alumni support that 
is now shown for fraternities will 
have to be shown for Williams Col- 
lege. But oui' plan naturally leads 
to stronger college loyalty. In short 
for the students, for the adminis- 
tration, and for the alumni, our 
plan will cost less. 

Although these savings depend 
partly upon the increased effi- 
ciency of college ownership and 
maintenance, the social units will 
be autonomous. They will not, for 
example, be dormitories with uni- 
form furnishings. Their members 
and officers will have the respon- 
sibility for operation much as they 
now do in a fraternity. 

The transition to our plan will 
take place in the following man- 

First, the college will obtain the 
fraternity buildings and land. The 
total tax assessment of the build- 
ings and land is $527,000, and an 
actual sale price would be higher. 
The college probably could not 
buy the fraternities outright. Ra- 
ther, it is preferable that the fra- 
ternities be relinquished, perhaps 
along with the mortgages they may 
carry. All this depends, in most 
cases, upon .the decisions of the 
fraternity alumni. 

Most of these alumni may well 
see that our plan eliminates the 
disadvantages of fraternities, and 
retains the advantages; therefore 

it is hoped that they will approve 
of it and willingly will relinquish 
their jurisdiction over fraternity 
buildUigs on the undergraduate 
campus. Even though this alumni 
decision is necessary, everyone re- 
alizes that the continued existence 
of fraternities depends upon their 
recognition by the college. Fur- 
thermore, to succeed, our plan 
will not necessarily have to util- 
ize all fifteen houses. But since 
we see quite clearly that fraterni- 
ties have outlived their original 
intention and usefulness on the 
Williams Campus, we desire to a- 
vrrt the bitter and radical revolu- 
tion that will destroy all the ad- 
vantages of fraternities. 

Tne transition to our plan will 
be begun most easily near the end 
of a spring term, with the idea 
of putting the plan into practice 
the following September. After 
the fraternities are obtained, a 
committee will carefully decide 
which dormitory entries will go 
with which social units. Member- 
sliip of the social units will be 
easily decided: all members of a 
present fraternity will remain 
members of the social unit which 
the fraternity becomes. Freshmen 
and returning upperclassmen who 
are not now in fraternities will go 
into social units by drawing lots. 

All social units will end up with 
roughly an equal number of mem- 
bers. At this point, all returning 
students will be members, and now 
each unit will have room-drawing 
for its dormitory and house rooms. 
Incoming freshmen will be as- 
signed to rooms and thus to so- 
cial luiits over the summer. For 
two years, .social units will contain 
students who had lived in them 
when they were fraternities, and 
some units will contain a few .stu- 
dents who had not, during the era 
of fraternities, been invited to 
join. Possible transitional friction 
that may occur will rapidly di- 
minish during the first two years 
and finally disappear.

Afof Yet 

Despite tlie advent of houseparties provoca- 
tive controversy continues over the proposed 
new social system here. 

It is significant to note that almost everyone 
—pro and con— agrees that under existing condi- 
tions the new plan would be virtually impossible 
to institute. The cost, both to inaugurate the 
scheme and in resulting alumni dissatisfaction, 
would be prohibitive. 

As had been expected, this dramatic pre- 
sentation has led to an extensive, campus-wide 
reappraisal of fraternities. Of course our system 
is far from perfect. Such acute problems as Stra- 
tification, Total Opportunity, Freshman Isola- 
tion, Cut-Throat Rushing Competition and All- 
College Loyalty remain. 

By working within the system, however, 
most of these faults can either be eliminated or 
reduced. This is where the value of the new 
plan lies. Aldiough it does not offer enough on 
its own to merit adoption, tlie proposal will 
prove to be a real service to the college if it 
motivates, as it should, a dedicated drive to im- 
prove the present system. But the time has not 
yet come to abolish Williams fraternities. 

Letter To The Editor 

In Defense Of Fraternity 

B(/ Richard M. Davis 

A great deal of obviously honest and sober 
thought has gone into the proposal by twenty- 
two members of the student body concerning the 
abolition of fraternities here. The basic assump- 
tion diese students have made is that the Ira- 
teruity system has outlived its usehdnoss at 
Williams, and can be replaced by a suiDcrior 
system. 1 wish to i)oint out tlic harnifid conse- 
c|uences of the pro]50sed system, and even more 
im|Dortant, challenge the thesis tliat fraternities 
are passe at Williams. 

Human nature does not change. What it 
is denied due to the banishment of selectivity it 
will seek in clit|uishness. Under the projiosecl 
system, this may manifest itself in the organiza- 
tion of numerous extra-college social system 
groups, or jockeying to get a member in (or 
out) of a social unit. Without tlie fraternal tie, 
no one is under any obligation to get along with 
another "different' person in his social unit. 
Unity, spirit and enthusiasm would suffer. 

Fraternities represent an effective channel 
for intercollegiate relations. Williams is already 
|)hysically aloof; abolition of fraternities would 
iinther estrange it from the nation's "community 
of colleges". Fraternities are also a drawing 
card- doing away with them might also do away 
widi a number of bright Williams prospects. Fur- 
thermore, the fraternity gi\'es the alumni a con- 
crete tie with his ahim mater. In an age of in- 
creasing;^ bigness and rootlcssness, alumni as well 
as students want affiliation with an intimate in- 
stitution, j)ossessin^ a name, a histon/ and a 
tradition, and a measure of selectivitij even if 
onli/ in the neffitive sense of the word. In the 
final anali/sis, a fraternity's onlij end is frater- 
nitas; it is one of the few things in life that ex- 
ists for purelii its own sake. 

Let us jjerfect what we have, with pro-To- 
tal Opportunity and anti-stratification measures, 
rather than veering off into a dubious innovation. 

Letter To The Editor 

To the Record: 

In raising anew the problems of the exist- 
ing social system here at Williams, the "anti- 
fraternity committee" (as it has unfortunately 
come to be called) has |}erformed an important 
and worthwhile service to the college communi- 

It has long been felt by many ( both frater- 
! nity members and indei^endents ) that the fra- 
ternity system is basically and inherently evil. 
It has come under attack from undergraduates, 
alumni and educational groups as not being 
worthy of continued existence. Any or all of the 
])ossible advantages that it might tend to offer 
ire overwhelmingly overshadowed by its many 

By urging the abolition of tiiis system, this 
committee has finally arrived at the correct path 
to be taken in constructing a new order to re- 
place the smoldering ruins of the old. Such pro- 
grams as Total Opportunity, social inembershiiJ 
and discrimination "witch-hunts" only serve to 
prolong the existence of a structure which, by 
the very nature of its ideals and principles, is 
incapable of ever being rebuilt to the satisfac- 
tion of anyone.

the president and board of trustees. Tlie plan 
does more than abolish fraternities. It includes 
all advantages which advocates of the old sys- 
tem praise. Among these are small social units, 
self governing groups, etc. However, it does 
eliminate the indiscriminate selectivity and lim- 
ited self-expression that are extolled by frater- 
nities—and for which diere never can be justifi- 

What is needed is not re construction, but 
construction. Construction, to me, implies the 
use of new materials. The only words that now 
must be added are those of the President and the 
Board of Trustees. These we eagerly await. 

David Friedberg '58 


Of all the different sorts of guys 

There are only two that I despise: 
The first I reaUy would like to slam 

Is the one who copies from my exam. 
The other one's the dirty skunk 

Who covers his and lets me flunk!

jrou're old enough to go out with girls. When

Ephs Top Union 10-1 
With Four Home Runs 

By Chuck Dunkel 

Bob McAlalne blasted two home 
runs Wednesday and Dick Ennis 
and Rich Kagan each clouted one 
a.s the Williams nine downed Un- 
ion, 10-1 on Weston Field for the 
Ephs' fourth victory in five games. 

McAlaine, the smooth-swinging 
sophomore third baseman, con- 
nected in both the first and second 
Innings with a man on base each

Poor Shooting 
Williams performance, the worst 
to date, was characterized by an 
inability to hold onto the ball, 
poor shooting and generally slop- 
py play, while the scoring punch 
suffered noticeably from the ab- 
sence of attackman Dave Andrew, 
out with a broken thumb. 

High point of the loser's cause 
was the continued steady perform- 
ance of Joe Perrott, Tony Furgue- 
son and Jim Smith at the defense 
posts and Jock Jankey in the 
crease. Jankey was called upon to 
turn aside eighteen shots during 
the contest. 

Although Coach Ostendarp was

ratings, the Ephmen by a 9-7 

Starting Lineup 
The attack will be Bill Wea- 
ver, Pit Johnson and a replace- 
ment for injured Dave Andrew. 
Dave Hilliard, co-captain Tony 
Brockelman and Dick Lisle will 
start at midfield backed by the 
strong second unit of Jim Richard- 
son, Peter Bradley and Bill Mil- 
ler, while Tony Pergueson, co-cap- 
tain Joe Perrott and Jim Smith 
will be at the defense spots in 
front of Jock Jankey, who will be 
in the nets. 

Following their clash with Mid- 
dlebury the stickmen will enter- 
tain Yale on May 8th and New 
Hampshire on May 15th. After a 
journey to Cambridge to take on 
Harvard the team will wind up Its 
season on home grounds May 18th 
with traditional rival Amherst.

Spring Success 
With Mardi Gras 

The "rage of change" hit Wil- 
liams houseparties. 

Friday afternoon and evening, 
Saturday morning and afternoon 
went pretty much as alway — 
cocktail parties, the dance, hang- 
overs and all that. But Saturday 
niKht, instead of following the time 
honored tradition of get-smashed- 
and-go-to-the-jazz-concert, Wil- 
liams undergraduates and their 
dates had a new tradition to fol- 
low: get-smashed-and-go-to-the- 
Mardi-Gras. Everyone stuck to it 
l)retty clasely. 

The junior class, who were run- 
ning the weekend, felt the jazz 
concert idea was becoming stereo- 
typed and decided upon replacing 
it with a Mardi Gras modeled on 
one at Amherst. 

The featured spot of the Mardi 
Gras, which lasted from nine un- 
til the snow came, was given to a 
bike race around the quad, won by 
Carl Schoeller after his opponents 
failed to finish. 

Freshman entries included a car 
wrecking, cigarette betting, a 
wheel of fortune, throw-the-hat- 
on-your-date and the Cafe Bo- 

Among the fraternities were: 
Chi Psi— dump the man in the 
tank, Zete— dart guns, Deke— lift 
your date's weight. Phi Delt — ■ 
Turtle Downs, DU— wheel of 
chance, Psi U— water balloons. 
Beta — marry your date, and the 
Independent "Turkey Shoot." 

■*3 The idea was originated by Ro 
bert K. Hess, former development 
director, who assumed the same 
post at Franklin and Marshall 
College April 1. He has returned 
for a week to run the affair. 

Invitations were sent to all par- 
ents of students, followed by a news 
bulletin from the president. 

Parents may register Friday and 
Saturday and attend cla.sses on 
either day. A production of Elmer 
Rice's "Dream Girl" will be run- 
niiU'. al the AMT both nights. 

Parents' Program 

A Parents' Day program will be 
held in Chapin Hall at 11:15 a.m. 
Saturday, followed by picnic 
lunch on Weston Field. In the af- 
ternoon the varsity tennis team 
will play Army at 2 and the varsity 
baseball team will oppose Amherst 
at 2:30. Dinner will be served tliat 
night in the fraternities and Bax- 
ter Hall.

Chapin Library 
Offers Exhibition 
Of Early Novels 

An exhibition, "The Emergence 
of the Novel as a Literary Form," 
is currently on display in the Cha- 
pin Library. 

Many of the volumes on view are 
so .scarce that there are only two 
or three other libraries in the Uni- 
ted States where they can be seen. 
The exhibition may be seen Mon- 
days through Fridays from 9 to 12 
and 1 to 5, and Saturdays fi'om 9 
to 12. The exhibition is free and 
open to the public. 

Gifford Prepares 

Prepared in conjunction with 
Donald Gifford, assistant profes- 
sor of English, the display has 
works of many of those authors 
whose writing contributed to the 
development of prose fiction as we 
know it today. Special emphasis 
has been placed on the original 
editions and English translations 
of those, Greek, Latin, French, I- 
talian, Spanish and German stor- 
ies that are today a familiar part 
of the literary scene. 

The Cupid and Psyche and the 
Daphnis and Chloe themes of A- 
puleus and Longus are represented 
by original editions of 1469 and 
1598 and by their English trans- 
lations of 1639 and 1657. The King 
Arthur legend is traced from a 
1486 edition of the "Chronicles of

Delta Phi Alumni Group Overrules 
Step Taken By Board Of Directors 

The alumni body of Delta Piii Saturday "recinded and annuled" the action of its former 
Board of Directors installing a new constitution and a new slate of officers at the local frateinity 
last January. 

At a special 6-hoin' meeting of the full membershi]j of Delta Phi Corporation at the \Villiains 
Chib in New York City, at which more tlian 300 Delta Phi alumni were either i^ersonally ]jresent 
or represented by proxy, the resolution was passed imanimously. This condemns the earlier move 
by the Board of Directors which led to an extensive four-month controversy and nation-wide pub- 
licity for the fraternity. 

Fraternity Abolishment 
Opposed By Trustees 

bt/ Bill Arend 
President James P. Baxter III and the Trustees, in a statement 
issued Saturday unconditionally condemned the auti-fratenn'ty plan 
presented last week by a group of 22 students. 

The statement also confirmed 
the stand of the Trustees taken in 
January 1952, which said "the 
Board is not willing to impose 
upon the fraternities a system 
which would guarantee admittance 
to a fraternity for any man who 
.so desires. 

'Obviously Sincere' 

"This proposal, whicli comes 
from a very small portion of our 
student body, is obviously sincere. 
But it does not, in our opinion, 
present a convincing case. We be- 
lieve that the social units on tlie 
campus are serving a useful pur- 
pose, and we hope that they will 
continue to do so." 

President Baxter added that the 
Board of Trustees saw no reason 
to discuss in detail the proposal 
of the 22 petitioners who advocated 
the creation of 15 social units out 
of existing dormitories and frater- 
nity houses. This proposal seemed 
to him totally unrealistic, he said. 

Remote Groupings 

The President further stated 
that groupings composed of sev- 
eral dormitory entries and a more 
or less remote fraternity house 
seemed to him to lack the physical 
contiguity necessary for the suc- 
cessful operation of a "house 
plan" like the one he had taken 
part in as a Master at Harvard. 

The Trustees declared that "we 
believe the social life of the cam- 
pus has improved in the past five 
years, and trust that it will con- 
tinue to do so. College and class 
spirit seem to us to have steadily 
strengthened, and the level of ac- 
ademic performance has risen." 

England" and Wolfram von Es- 
chenbach's "Parzival" of 1488 down 
to an early edition of Thomas Mal- 
ory's "Morte d'Arthur." Tlie ex- 
hibition ends with first editions of 
such books as Daniel Defoe's 
"Moll Flanders," 1721, and Henry 
Fielding's "Tom Jones," 1749. 

Appearing in the Cap and Bells production of "Dream Girl" 
Thursday, Friday and Saturday are tJie above. Miss Diana Hitt 
in the feature role, Bob Koster '57 and Tony Distler '59. The El- 
mer Rice Broadway success produced by Williams J. Martin will 
be the dramatic Iiighlight of Parents Weekend at the Adams Me- 
morial Theatre. 

The play had a long Broadway run following its debut in 
December of 1945, and has also been quite popular in summer 
stock. The play concerning a girl, Georgianna, and her repertoire 
of various dreams is difficult to handle because of the involved 
plot and twenty scenery changes. 

Also playing with Miss Hitt, Koster and Distler will be Mrs. 
Robert Waite, Donald MacMaster '57, Harold Metzgar '58 and 
Robert Leinbach '57. Scene designers are Patrick McGinnis '57 and 
Robert Vail '58. Capacity crowds are expected each night. 

The crisis has still not been set- 
tled, however, although definite 
action is expected within two 
weeks. The heart of contention re- 
mains the one-blackball male for 
pledging which the local chapter 
has refused to accept but which 
the national now requires. 

Also at the meeting, Arthur L. 
Steven.son Jr., '45, was elected pre- 
sident of the alumni body. Other 
newly-elected officers Include Sec- 
retary Dean K. Webster III '51, 
Treasurer David Kelly Jr. '50, and 
Directors Arthur H. Moss '52, Hen- 
ry Norwood '53, John A. Peterson 
'46, and Henry G. Weaver Jr. '50. 

In a letter to D Phi house Pre- 
sident Nick Pangas '58, and college 
President James P. Baxter III an- 
nouncing these actions, Stevenson 
stated : "It is our sincere hope that 
by working together with the un- 
dergraduate membership that we 
can reach satisfactory solution of 
the problem facing us." 

Scholarship Deadline 

student Aid Director Henry 
N. Plynt announced that the 
deadline for picking up schol- 
arship applications for next 
year is Saturday. 

All Students who received 
scholarships this year, or who 
did not receive aid this year but 
wish to be considered for next 
year, must pick up their appli- 
cations at Mr. Flynt's office by 
this time. 

Rev, Cole Delivers Final Sermon; 
Calls For Aiiirmation, Not Denial 

In his final sermon as college 
chaplain, Rev. William G. Cole 
reminded a large Houseparty crowd 
that "the faitli of your fathers is 
still alive and relevant." 

Citing as his own credo what 
William James called "over-be- 
hef", the chaplain called for af- 
firmation rather than denial, to 
live in respect for truth, in rever- 
ence for life and in constant and 
abiding live. "I say to that strange 
and wondrous Man of Galilee, 
'Thou art the Way and the Truth 
and the Life. To whom else can I 
go? Thou hast the words of eter- 
nal life.' " 

Students Cautious 

The sermon dealt with the cau- 
tious attitude of many students to- 
day, acknowledging no heroes, pro- 
fessing only lukewarm admirations, 
shunning causes and flinching 
from commitments. 

Calling the current religious re- 
vival more sociological than intel- 
lectual or spiritual, the chaplain 
said that the mutltudes who Join 
the church today have no pro- 
found religious convictions. "They 

are pagans with the fringe on top," 
he said. 

riie chaplain noted also that 
"all of you value sincerity and in- 
tegrity . . . your devotion to truth 
is remarkably strong . . . you are 
aware ... of the 'reverence for 
life' . . . you believe in love . . . you 
think competition should be fair

values . . . you can bet your life . . , 
that your values are somehow root- 
ed in the nature of reality Itself

A Good Try 

As expected the Trustees Saturday turned 
down the proposed new social system here (see 
page one). 

This, of course, surprised no one, including 
the creators of the plan. Actually, by focusing 
extreme campus attention on the benefits and 
evils of the fraternity system, these men accom- 
plished as much as they had hoped for. 

Perhaps the most significant part of the 
Trustees' statement was their assertion that the 
administration would never force Total Oppor- 
tunity upon the school. This, of course, is as it 
should be. 

With the commendable spirit shown this 
spring nlong these lines, Williams is now closer 
to Total Opportunity than it has ever been. If 
"sjjring intention" is converted into "autumn ac- 
tion", voluntary activity by the fraternities them- 
selves should be more than enough to accomplish 
Total Opiiortunity here. 

Letter To The Editor 

To The Record: 

A major argument of those who dismiss the 
recent jolan to ado]jt a new social system here as 
illusory and "dehumanizing" is that the plan pro- 
hibits an individual from selecting his personal 
associates. Actually, this system has attempted 
to promote selectivity while eliminating insti- 
tutionalized discrimination. 

It can be seriously questioned whether the 
present rushing system of bids and bounces real- 
ly gives the individual any conscious choice of 
his fraternal associates. The concept of Total 
Opportunity, if ever realized, will deprive the 
fraternities of their "right of selectivity". The 
promotion of Total Opportunity appears to be 
an attempt to democratize fraternities at the 
same time that it is undermining them at the 
very core. 

The plan published last week does not deny 
that social cliques will arise in any group of in- 
dividuals. This new proposal tries to compensate 
for incompatibilities by allowing an individual to 
change his social unit once during his four years. 
Nobody will deny that this new proposal has 
many mechanical difficulties which would have 
to be ironed out. But it should not be forgotten 
that this plan is an attempt to promote selec- 
tivity of associates. 

If a person is a member of a "top" house, 
a "middle" house, a "low" house or no house at 
all, he is always stigmatized in terms of his 
particular group. This proposal is an attempt to 
eliminate this stigma of group association while 
it promotes selectivity. I believe it should be 
considered in those terms. 

Dick Ennis '57 

To The Record; 

I congratulate the 22 students of their well 
thought through plan for the abolition of the 
Fraternities and the development of a new social 
system which would be more democratic, better 
economically for students, the Alumni and the 
College, and free of the present divided loyalty. 

If it is true as the Editorial suggests that 
the Alumni make donations because of Frater- 
nity connections and not because of the College, 
I consider this regrettable. 

I take complete exception to the Editorial 
statement "... the proposed new social sys- 
tem could never become a reality here . . . " 
Why not? Conservatism, nay selfishness, should 
not be allowed to stand in the way of a finer 
Williams College. 

I sincerely wish that the plan could go 
into effect tomorrow. 

A Faculty Wife 

Letters To The Editor 

To The Record: 

Most students undoubtedly remember the 
clever satire on fraternities circulated last fall. 
I would like to extend my congratulations to the 
group that printed the pamphlet, for they have 
(lone it again. Seldom do students on this campus 
view proceedings of our social system with any 
humor, but I don't think that this last contribu- 
tion can be overlooked. 

Having appreciated the farcical Total Op- 
portunity problem and its lack of solution, these 
gentlemen have come up with a witty little 
production that puts the College Council, So- 
cial C^ouncil and Gargoyle to shame, if only for 
pure originality. 

It seems to me, however, that some of their 
humor is unnecessarily caustic and, when this 
is directed at the college itself, it shows bad 
taste. To suggest that the college would be able 
to assume the financial burden of buying (the 
alumni will obviously not 'relinquish' the houses 
once they 'see that our plan eliminates the dis- 
advantages of fraternities') much less supporting 
the houses, is a travesty on the financial situation 
of Williams College. Likewise, the accusation 
that; 'The freshman quad never had had a 
pleasant or even moderately clean atmosphere 
. . . (and) is the scene of one of the most 
shameful conditions on the Williams campus' is 
not even humorous. It only shows a complete 
lack of appreciation for everything the trustees 
have tried to accomplish in the last five years. 

Overlooking these faults, the general con- 
tent of the pamphlet is delightfully satirical. 
Who else has ever so blandly stated the facts 
that fraternities are discriminatory and undemo- 
cratic as well as costing money and tending to 
create individual groups on the campus, and 
then turned the situation around and made these 
qualities represent the greatest evil in our col- 
lege society? An especially clever point in the 
article is that 'Under our plan, the heartbreak, 
annoyance, and artificial standards of "rushing" 
and "hell-week" would disappear.' They cer- 
tainly would; in fact, everything would be elim-

To The Record; 

It is heartening to see such an ambitious 
attempt at critical thought as that of the recent 
proposal for the abolition of fraternities. It is 
disappointing, however, that the plan should be 
so hastily and carelessly thought out. We recom- 
mend that the authors glance at some of the ob- 
vious weaknesses of their scheme. 

1— A person would be allowed only one 
change from his appointed social unit. After 
this, no matter how badly his group thwarted 
the ex]5ression and development of his person- 
ality, he would have no relief. It is important 
to realize here that unlike the large incohesive 
groups of a dormitory system, the social units 
under this system would be small and auto- 
nomous. Consequently, there would be a special 
danger of it tryannizing over the person who 
did not conform. 

2— The proposed plan maintains that al- 
though the college will own the social units, 
they will remain autonomous. The self assurance 
the ]jroposal has over the possibility of sur- 
mounting the economic problems of such a plan 
shows naivete. Finding a workable and desire- 
able system under which the college could set 
rates and foot bills while letting fifteen auto- 
nomous groups without direct financial account- 
ability run things appears all but impossible. The 
experiment of the SAC indicates that even on a 
smaller level the difficulties involved in decen- 
tralized spending and centralized appropria- 
tions are almost insurmountable. The economic 
chaos would make central direction necessary. 
This would be resented and would produce an 
unstable and unhealthy situation which would 
neither give a sense of autonomy nor promote 

3— The plan proposes to promote greater 
unity, yet it actually promotes greater fragmen- 
tation. At present the freshmen and sophomores 
live with their classmates in dormitories not split 
by fraternities. Under the new plan one would 
live for four years with the same individuals in 
the same small groups. 

We recommend that the authors of the 
plan recognise that they too can "misdirect" 
energy and waste "talents". With this in mind 
they should re-examine their hasty conclusions.

Exams loom closer and closer. The sands run out ; the 
chips are down. This, you will agree, is no time for levity. 

Accordingly, I have asked the makers of Philip Morris 
whether I might not dispense with jesting in today's col- 
umn and instead devote it to a cram course in languages. 

Their consent was cheerfully given, for they are fine, 
great-hearted men, the makers of Philip Morris, just as 
full of natural goodness as the cigarettes they turn out, 
just as friendly, just as jolly, just as regular, just as un- 
filtered, just as agreeable. "Why, bless you, child !" cried 
the makers. "Of course!" Then they rumpled my chest- 
nut curls and somebody cried "Not it!" and before you 
could say flip-top box, a game of Squat Tag was on, and 
we played 'til the moon was over the yardarm, and then, 
pink and tousled, we all went inside and had flagons of 
temperance punch and Philip Morris cigarettes and fell 
into our trundle beds and slept the clock around ! 

But I digress. Today let us turn our attention to the 
study of languages. 

Do you realize how important languages are? I must 
confess that, until recently, I did not. "What good will 
Spanish ever do me?" I kept asking. 

Well sir, I found out. Recently I took a trip to Latin 
America, and every day I thanked my lucky stars for 
having learned Spanish in college. While my fellow tour- 
ists stumbled and bumbled, I was perfectly at home.

daughter of his fat sister is called Juanita. She has two 
small books, one gray cat, three black dogs, 24 red 
chickens, one fat pig, eight pewter mugs, and a partridge 
in a pear tree." 

"Wilt thou have a Philip Morris cigarette?" I asked. 

"Gracious," he said thankfully. 

We lit Philip Morrises and smoked contentedly the 
better part of the day. 

"Perhaps by now my footman shall have finished sweep-

Arm in arm we walked to his house, but, alas, hia

it was time for my airplane to take off.

Williams Stickmen Outlast Middlebury, 6-3; 
Six Ephmen Divide Six Goals In Third Win ' 

In a rough, low-scoring game 
Saturday, the Williams Lacrosse 
team managed to outlast Middle- 
bury 6-3, before a large houseparty 
crowd on Cole Field. 

Bill Weaver and Dick Jackson 
started the game for the Ephs with 
two quick goals. Pete Bradley hit in 
the second quarter against one 
Panther tally, and the Purple left 
the field with a 3-1 lead at half- 

At the opening of the second 
half, Middlebury took the offen- 
sive and rammed home two quick 
goals to tie the score. Eplimen 
Bill Miller and Rog Southall re- 

captured the lead for Williams 
with .solo dashes to the goal, and 
Pit Johnson, after racking three 
assists in the opening quarters, 
tallied for the Ephs' sixth goal in 
the last quarter. 

Ostendarp Praises Defense 

Williams Coach Jim Ostendarp 
praised the defensive game of his 
team, but stated, "We still haven't 
found the key we're looking for 
to unlock our offensive potential." 

The Ephmen will put their 3-1 
record on the line against Yale,

5-2 and 6-1 respectively.

two 75's and a 78 for the Ephs, 
with his 75's taking low gross hon-

one department chairmen. 
By John Good 

A slight difference of opinion 
on the value of the seminars 
marked the last interviews with 
department chaiimen. 

Professor Robert J. Allen, chair- 

He added that the complete semi- 
nar program in the English de- 
partment is in its second year. 

Professor Allen feels that the 
seminar and thesis routes to the 
honors degree are equally respect- 
ed, and he shares Professor Bar- 

Professor Faison stressed the im- 
portance of cutting across depart- 
mental lines in doing honors work. 
He feels that the thesis and semi- 
nars should have a certain con- 
centration, but that concentration 
should draw from other depart- 
ments at the same time. "I think 
that It is the heart of the program. 
A student should not limit his stu- 
dies to only one department be- 

important. In fact we require one 
seminar course outside of our de 
partment for our honors students.

man of the EngUsh department nett's view that the seminar pro- cause no one department Is that 
felt that the seminar program has 
worked equally as well as the older 
thesis program while Professor S. 
Lane Paison, chairman of the Art 
department stated that "other 
things being equal, I still reserve 
my greatest respect for the thesis. 
But other things such as parti- 
cipation in school leadership and 
the difficulty of courses outside 
the major are not always equal." 

Professor Allen said that the se- 
minar program has worked ex- 
tremely well in the English de- 
partment. He expressed the opin- 
ion that men taking the complete 
seminar courses profit by getting 
a chance to spread themselves 
more by reading as much as a the- 
sis student on several varied topics. 

"Everyone is fast with his mind, 
and everyone has a chance to ex- 

vldes the needed opportunity for a 
student who does not want to spe- 
cialize to take honors courses. 

Professor Faison also was pleased 
with the outcome of the seminar. 
"I considered it a privilege to work 
with these brighter students. The 
seminar gave an opportunity for 
give and take between the stu- 
dents and the teacher, and we did 
a lot of things we couldn't do with 
slower students and larger classes," 
he said. 

"But I still feel the thesis is the 
biggest challenge and gives the 
student greater satisfaction when 
he takes stock of what he's done," 
declared Faison. "The thesis does- 
n't have to be of graduate calibre, 
and it doesn't necessarily grind you

Changes Proposed

The Williams faculty will be

Fourteen new appointments have 
been made to the faculty, accord-

members will fill positions opened 
by six leaves and three resigna- 
tions, there will be a small gain 
in the size of the faculty as a 

President Baxter, who was "gra- 
tified at the quality of the new 
men", stated that his search for 
new instructors was helped by last

that the change would have little 
or no affect upon student waiters. 
He added that the new lunch houi's 
would be considerably more con- 
venient for freshmen.

As a significant by-product of 
the change, it is expected that the 
new setup will undermine the 
newly enacted inter fraternity

Reconstruction of Fayerweather Hall, (above), part of tire 
Sophomore quad, will be undertaken this summer, according to 
Charles A. Foehl, Jr., college treasurer. 

Other summer construction projects include a Language 
Practice Laboratory in the basement of Chapin Hall, completion 
of work in Chapin and Lawrence Halls, the library of the Chem- 
ical Laboratory and new quarters for the music department in 
the basement of Currier Hall. This work will bring to completion 
the $4,500,000 reconstruction and modernization program pur- 
sued here since 1949. 

David M. Deans of Williamstown has been chosen contractor 
for the $300,000 reconstruction of Fayerweather, which will be 
similar to the East College project he completed last fall. Hoyle, 
Doran & Berry of Boston, formerly Cram & Ferguson, is the archi- 
tectural firm.

No Noontime Broadcasting 

Tilt' ijropo.sed changes in Student Union din- 
ing (.see |)age une) revive month's contro- 
versy o\er the inter-frateniity noontime broad- 
casting system. 

In the face of wide-spread opposition the 
College Coimcil ])assed an all-school tax to buy 
each fraternity an FM radio set to receive per- 
tinent Iinichtime announcements from WMS— 
\V(;FM. Both Student Union dining halls were 
to be connected to the service, which was to be 
instituted next fall. 

Now, however, the situation has changed. 
Freshmen eating will be spread from 11:30 to 
12:30 daily and, thus, very few freshmen will 
be able to hear the 12:25 announcements. It is 
obvious that if over one-fourth of the student 
body does not receive the service, any value the 
system may have once contained now will be 
greatly undermined. 

Therefore, there is now no question that it 
would be a definite mistake to allow noontime 
broadcasting to go into effect here. The CC will 
have one last chance to defeat this measiue Mon- 
day; it should do so. 

CC Statement 

Following is the text of a statement by the 
College Council concerning the recent proposal 
for a new social system here: 

"As the vast majority of the student body is 
oppposed to the recent proposal to abolish fra- 
ternities, the College Council does not endorse 
tlie proposal. Although the CC recognizes the 
existance of the campus problems described by 
the Anti-Fraternity minority, it does not agree 
with that group's proposed solution." 

Amherst, Trinity, BV Face 
Rushing, Tuition Problems 

By Jim Rayhill 
While browsing through newspapers from 
other colleges we were struck by the many 
which are struggling with problems similar to 
those which plague Williams. Editorial after ed- 
itorial discussed Total Opi)ortuuity, discrim- 
ination, rushing, high tuition and similar- topics. 
Following are a sampling of tiie editorial com- 
ment of other college news|3apers: 

O ft 

"Students, faculty and the Administration of 
Amherst College have shown an active aware- 
ness of the inhingement of the rushing period 
upon die well-being of the College community 
in recent years. ... If we are to remain pri- 
marily an educational institution, die problem of 
fraternities and tlieir rushing (which occuis dur- 
ing the second semester while classes are in 
session) vidll have to be remedied. We propose 
that ... the 'formal' rushing period take place 
witliin the week ]5receding the beginning of the 
sophomore year." . . . Amherst Student, Mar. 14. 

o o « « 

"The Tripod suggestion of raising the fra- 
ternity pledging from 67 to 70 met with a 5-5 
\'ote at tlie l.F.C. meeting ... It should be kept 
in mind that 67 is the lowest average a man can 
have to graduate . . . The case against raising 
the scholastic average is unfortunately still mud- 
dled by narrow, selfish thinking. The dissenting 
houses have not taken into account the national 
antl local fraternity jiicture, whereby fraternities 
arc being called u|)on daily to justify their own 
existence." 'IVinity Tripod, April 3 

O 4 « 

"Tht! Student Faculty Assembly recentiy 
discussed the )3roblem of tuition hikes. Needless 
to say there were a few 'moans and groans' but 
$100 is a lot of money. Money comes hard for 
the college student— or any student. But we must 
realize the need for these funds . . . The great- 
I'r percent of the tuition liike will be used to in- 
crease faculty salaries . . . We don't want facul- 
ty members leaving the university because of 
financial jjroblems. Thus we must avoid this pos- 
sibility with a salary raise."

Four common complaints were found in an interview with 30 
of the 45 rosidonts of East Collcirc, I)iit satisfaction was the tone 
of tlic general res|5onsc after one year of occupuncy. 

Amonj^ eif^ht f^encral cata^ories involved, over-compactness 
of triples, irrej^nlar iieatinj; in rooms, erratic temperature of show- 
er and basin water and thinness of walls were most often biouirht 


The size of triple rooms claimed the greatest argumentation 
from those directly concerned, about 17 in number. Several stu- 
dents suggested the |)ossibility of ixutitioning or conversion to 
doubles. Closet space and setup was endorsed by most doubles, but 
triple roonnnates again raised the cramped (|uarters issue on tiie 
huilt-in wardrobes. 

More than half of the 30 interviewed believed strongly that 
the riiinness of walls should in some way be corrected, either by 
thicker material or by iiutting bedrooms back to back and studies 
ill like fashion. It seems that most riotous livers were inadvertantly 
situated b(;side the scholastic set this year with the walls hardly 
any protection. 

Windows raised the eyebrows of about 15 primarily l)eca\ise 
of no shades or ]Dlace to hang drapes. Several commented on 
looseness or stickiness resulting in lack of protection in winter or 
lack of ventilation in the summer. Seven students revealed that 
their doors were hard to ojjeu and close, or had locks eager to 
receive keys but not relin(|uish them

The principle change necessi- 
tated by the expansion lies in the 
method of admitting students to 
MIT. In the past liberal arts 
schools selected the candidates, but 
Thresher stated that, due to the 
probability of an increase in the 
number of candidates, "the MIT 
admissions office now will make 
the decisions."

production of a student revue. 

Added Two 

Since notices were mailed to sub- 
scribers earlier, the theater has 
added "The Time of Your Life" 
and "John Bull's Other Island." 
The academic part of the program 
— the two play productions and the 
two concert readings sponsored by 
the AMT — are closely linked to the 
life and work of Harley Granville

er, director, Shakespearean schol-

a faculty revue has been given in

sented an annual skit for the Al-

ed. It is hoped to make the stu- 
dent revue — which has been given 
for two consecutive years — an an-

Ephs Drop Two In Extra Innings; 
Meet Amherst Saturday On Weston 


By Chuck Dunkel 

Massachusetts pushed across two 
runs in the eleventh imiing Wed- 
nesday to hand the Williams nine 
its second straight extra inning 
defeat, 5-3, in a game played on 
Weston Field. Tuesday the Ephs 
lost to Holy Cross at Worcester, 
8-7, in ten innings. 

Massachusetts bunched foui' 
singles off loser Dick Flood to pro- 
duce the two runs, with two of 
the hits coming with two outs. 
Flood went all the way for the 
Ephs, allowing only nine hits while 
striking out six. However, nine 
walks kept the stylish lefthander 
in trouble, as Mass. left 13 men 
on base. 

Score First 

The visitors scored first in the 
second inning on two singles and 
a walk, and added two more in the 
third to take a 3-0 lead. However, 
the Ephmen came back in the bot- 
tom of the second to score one run 
when Rick Power singled home 
Dick Marr. 

Williams Ties Score 

Williams tied the score in the 
sixth when Fearon was safe on an 
error, Kagan singled and Hedeman 
blasted a two-out single. The Ephs 
threatened again in the seventh, 
but Andy Knowles relieved starter

Yale Stickmen Take 
6-5 Win Over Ephs 

Overcoming a 2-0 first period de- 
ficit, the Yale Lacrosse team went 
on to take a 6-5 decision Wednes- 
day afternoon on sunbathed Cole 
field, thwarting the Ephs deter- 
mined attempt at an upset. 

Bill Miller opened the scoring at 
4:04 of the first frame, followed 
five minutes later by the first of 
two goals by Rog Southall. Yale 
bounced back quickly to erase 
Williams early lead as they pump- 
ed four goals past a lagging de- 
fense, Chris Cushman figuring in 
all four markers, and led 4-2 at 
half time. 

Williams showed tremendous 
spark in the third period, tying 
the score at four-all. Dick Lisle 
made it 4-3 at 4:10 of the period, 
while Dick Jackson, moved up to 
attack from his defense post, 
notched the equalizer at 9:06. 

Yale again took the lead before 
time ran out in the third period 
and added another before the sev- 
en-minute mark of the final frame. 
Southall scored his second goal 
of the contest to bring it to 6-5. 
The game ended before Williams 
could pose another threat.

Led by the scoring of newly- 
elected co-captains George Boyn- 
ton and Nick Ratcliffe, the fresh- 
man lacrosse team trounced the 
Harvard freshmen 26-13 at Har- 
vard Wednesday for their sixlli 
consecutive win by over ten points. 

Harvard took the lead only once, 
In the first period, but the score 
was tied 2-2 at the end of the 
period and Williams began a scor- 
ing drive which boosted their half- 
time lead to five points. Boynton 
and Ratcliffe each scored seven 
points, trailed by Chuck Cutler 
with five points. 

Coach Al Shaw, commenting on 
the season to date, noted "If we 
can win the next two games— and 
I think our chances are good — this 
will be the best Williams Fresh- 
man Lacrosse team ever." The i»ext 
games are against powerful Deer- 
field Wednesday and strong Am- 
herst next Saturday.
