Explorer I Pushed To 
Largest Satellite Orbit 

Bt/ Theodore G. Mehlin 
Professor of Astronomy 

With the successful launching of a satellite from an army 
Jupiter-C rocket at 10:58 pm EST Friday, January 31, the United 
States undoubtedly regained some of the international prestige 
which it lost as a result of the successful Russian Sputniks I and II. 

Unlike the Navy's recent four-foot low altitude rocket record, 
the Jupiter-C rocket developed more than its calculated power 
and drove the Explorer I into a larger orbit than had been antici- 
pated. At the lowest point in its orbit the space vehicle is 200 miles 
above the earth's surface, and half-way aiound its orbit it reaches 
a maxiinum elevation of 1700 miles. At this height tlie earth's 
gravitational pull is only one half the sea level value. Explorer's 
-speed of 18,000 miles an liour enables it to completely circle the 

earth every 113 minutes. 

Different Chapel 
Based On Bible 

Introducing a new twist to Sun- 
day Chapel, the WCC sponsored 
a lecture given by Dr. James 
Mullenburg In place of the usual 
Sunday service. 

Rev. William S. Coffin denied 
that this had any connection with 
the compulsory chapel controversy. 
The purpose of the lecture, Mr. 
Coffin said, was to acquaint the 
students with the Bible, and the 
free chapel credit served only as 
an inducement. 

Finds Emptiness and Loneliness 

Dr. Mullenburg said that a feel- 
ing of emptiness and loneliness is 
not found among the community 
of believers who understand and 
remember history as an unending 
and mysterious stream of events 
that reveal God's relation to his- 

By listening to the stories of 
the Bible the many peoples of the 
world such as the Chinese, Afri- 
cans, and Indians who are becom- 
ing aware of themselves as a peo- 
ple can see how the Israelites, who 
have always been a part of his- 
tory and Involved with other na- 
tions and races, have interpreted 

By Interpreting through poetic 
symbolism, the Israelites, Mullen- 
burg contends, have always known 
which way the world was going 
and could look to the future with 

Gargoyle Urges 
Annual Assembly 

The Gargoyle Society has pre- 
sented a resolution to the Presi- 
dent and Trustees of the college 
suggesting that a formal convoca- 
tion be held annually on the first 
day of classes. They feel it would 
emphasize the "formal Academic 
aspect of the college year" and the 
"dignity of the faculty". 

Professor Samuel A. Matthews, 
chairman pro-tempore of the fac- 
ulty, later commented that a con- 
vocation was already "definitely 
In the works" and will be held 
early next fall. "I think It will 
serve the purpose of the Oargoyle 

Along with the resolutions, 
Dave Phillips, president of Gar- 
goyle, announced that evaluations 
of the Honor System and College 
Public Relations will be released 
shortly. The re-evaluation of the 
sixty-year-old Honor System will 
be the first in twenty years. It is 
expected to suggest at least one 
major change. 

Facts and Figures 

The 200-mlle minimum ap- 
proach distance is the vital figure 
in predicting a long life for the 
satellite. Friction with the earth's 
rarlfied outer atmosphere is pro- 
bably the most important factor In 
slowing the speed of the satellite. 
Calculations, which indicate that 
the density of the earth's atmos- 
phere is one billionth of sea level 
at 170 miles, and one million-mil- 
lionth of sea level at 750 miles, in- 
dicate the importance of having 
the perigee at a good height. Sput- 
nik I came within about 150 miles 
of the earth In its early orbit and 
Sputnik II within about 90 miles. 

As the first of several artificial 
satellites which the United States 
plans to get into orbit during the 
IGY, Explorer I is our first space 
laboratory. It carries two radios 
and sends ba,ck readings of cosmic 
ray intensity, meteoric Impacts, 
and the temperature of the space 
near the satellite as well as the 
temperatures of the satellite it-

By Eric Davis 

Winter Carnival 1958 is upon 
us. With scarcely two and a half 
days remaining before housepar- 
tles, this reporter found the fol- 
lowing letter crumpled under a 
chapel pew. We print it here in 
full in order to broaden our cov- 
erage of history in the making. 

Dear Gwendolyn, 

It is with a spirit strangely rest- 
less that I write to you tonight. It 
Is awfully quiet here in the house; 
It is 10:30 and all the fellows are 
asleep or studying. My head is 
shot with post-examination ten- 
sion and aspirin; I am restless, 

nervous. I find it most difficult to 
write ... (A smeared blotch of per- 
spiration obscures the course of 
the discourse.) 

... I now see why the great Les 
Elgart will preside at a Great 
Dance Friday night, why a red- 
hot jazz concert with Jimmy Mc- 
Partland and The Clovers will 
warm Chapin's sober walls, why a 
Goddess or something will be cor- 
onated then, why the hockey and 
basketball teams will see fierce 
action, why the ski trails will echo 
with cries of sporting spirit, why 
writhing freshmen labor on a sta-

dent. "Whoever it was, he was 
fairly well acquainted with the 
system, for he stole books at a 
time when many other students 
wt-'ie leduliiiig ihcii Used book.:) 
from the first semester," said 
Chief Royal. 

Discriminating Felon 

"A further Indication that he Is 
a student is that he selected only 
those books which would be valu- 
able in exchange," remarked Mr. 

Mr. Cole felt that perhaps the 
larcener had an outlet outside of 
Williamstown for selling the used 
books, but Williamstown book 
dealers Joe Dewey and Ray Wash- 
burn have been notified. "I don't 
know what I would do if I caught 
him," said Mr. Washburn. "Pro- 
bably hold him at gun point and 
call Dean Cole." 

Several clues have brought the 
case nearer solution, and Chief 
Royal feels that the thief has left 
a well marked trail. He asked how 
ever that anyone missing any 
books or anyone with any clues 
that might lead to the apprehen- 
sion of the felon should notify the 
college pohce. 

Royal observed that this wave is 
the first of its kind at Williams. 
Former thefts were of single ex- 
pensive items such as typewriters 
and phonographs, There have been 
cases in the past when an outsider 
has come through and confiscated 
a quantity of clothes and moved 
on, but never a wave, such as this,

President Baxter and contained 
representatives of all phases of 
secondary and higher education. 

Stress Ability and Satisfaction

attended. They were headed by 
Alexander Chapman '22 and James

session, there were question and 
answer periods. 

The panelists covered all as- 
pects of each occupation, analys-

general pay levels and opportuni- 
ties for advancement. The re- 
quirements of businesses and the 
professions were discussed, among 
which ability and satisfaction were 
universally stressed. 

Auer Speaks At 
Career Meeting 

Cites Individuality As 
Essential To Success 

By Ted Castle 

"The corporation never wanted 
my soul — and it doesn't now. And 
it doesn't want yours. It just 
wants the very best work you can 
deliver." Speaking at the opening 
salvo of Williams' Career Week- 
end, Bernhard M. Auer '39, Cir- 
culation Director of Time Maga- 
zine, effectively countered the the- 
sis of Whyte's "Organization 

"Sociologists are concerned that 
. . . a sort of creeping benevolence 
might enslave you (in industry). 
But this Is not industry's objec- 
tive. In fact, your individuality, 
your independant thought, is es- 
sential to your success." 

Auer's speech, which followed 
two rather lengthy offerings on 
similar subjects, dealt nominally 
with the transition "Prom Schol- 
arship to DoUarship." He empha- 
sized that college students are 
"better prepared for this transi- 
tion mentally than (they) have 
been for any other." Auer felt 
that mental flexibility, adventure- 
somness of mind, and self-reli- 
ance are qualities both encouraged 
at Williams and essential for busi- 
ness success. 

Mr. Auer added a list of his own 
to numerous lists of qualities 
needed by executives which the 
speakers recommended. 

"The ability to see the things 
that need to be done.

As alumni were speakinp; at the opening 
foriirn of Career Weekend Friday in the AMT, 
technicians sent the first American satellite- 
carrying rocket into the night sky above Cape 

At Williams the relation between these two 
events became significant at the Saturday af- 
ternoon panel on education. It was the best-at- 
tended panel of the weekend. 

Because the East- West strategic duel will be 
won or lost by our generation in the classroom, 
this high interest in education is encouraging. 

Career Weekend is, and should be, an in- 
creasingly popular Williams institution. It gives 
the student valuable advice and information to 
help him plan his future. 

The forum Friday night, where four alumni 
spoke on the necessary qualifications for suc- 
cess, was too long and repetitive. One can say 
only so much on this subject, and each man 
said much the same thing. This forum— except 
as a somewhat contrived "opening salvo" for 
the weekend— could be dispensed with in the 
future unless a wider and more interesting vari- 
ety of subjects can be discussed. 

The panels on business, government work, 
and the professions— although they varied widely 
in quality— were on the whole valuable. 

Probably the most important part of the 
weekend was the personal contact between the 
students and the invited alumni. It was from this 
that the most was learned. 

Thanks must go to Mr. Copeland, the stu- 
dents, faculty, and especially the alumni who 


Last Satui-day tlie Recoiid received a point- 
less New Year's greeting from Communist Clii- 

Postmarked in Peking, it was sent to us by 
tJie All-China Student I'ederation. Wishing us 
"Best New Yeai' Wishes for Peace, Friendshi]) 
and Happmess," it included a gaily-colored pic- 
tuie of a cat widi a fish in its paws— somewhat 
suggestive of an ad for tiie Chesapeake and Oliio 

The card was a pleasant— though meaning- 

We wish that they could have sent us some 
substantial information. In any newsijajjer we 
can read about development |)rojects in the 
Yangtze River Basin, but a ilirect personal con- 
tact—beyond a mere cat on a New Year's card- 
has great value. 

This lack of dhect contact is unfortunate. 

Widi no such contact tlie people of both na- 
tions can develop quite distorted ideas about 
each odier. A sbiking example of this kind of 
distortion was a woman iii a Central Asian So- 
viet repubhc who asked Arthur Koestler in 
1932 whedier America was run by Negroes. 

Such false knowledge can nurture tear be- 
tween America and Communist China. 

And tliis fear dai-kens the prospect of om- 
living at peace with tlie generation of Chinese 
who wished us "friendship and happiness." 

Letters To The Editor 


To the Recobd: 

Although I no longer Uve in tlie Barracks, 
I diink that it is time that someone said jiublicly 
what many have been saying privately. Cranted 
die couples hving in the Barracks are jjrobably 
some of the happiest. We are all glad to be mar- 
ried and to be able to be togetlier even thougl) 
it means livmg in substandard housing. How- 
ever, the fact remains that they are cold, duty, 
cellarless, and firetraps. You get them comfort- 
ably warm in tlie winter and the first floor a- 
partments overtax the kerosene stoves to an 
extent that always causes the workmen to give 
out warnings but one will try to keep warm 
even if dangers are involved. 

We brought our new baby back to the Bar- 
racks last January when it was an unusual 28 
below, and we wondered which would give out 
first; the baby, the stove, or us. I won't go into 
the difficulties of heating water, cooking on a 
kerosene stove, constant overloading of the elec- 
trical system, the paper thin walls and the lovely 
kerosene odor that permeates the Barracks 
dweller and follows him everywhere. 

It may appear inapjjreciative to attack "tem- 
porary" Barracks after the college has just paint- 
ed them, but it is time that Williams and other 
schools like her realized that the married stu- 
dent is here to stay. Large schools across the 
nation have built permanent married student 
housing, where one third of the student popula- 
tion is married. Here there must be 15 or 20 
married students living hither and yon, and ap- 
parently more every year join the ranks. 

It seems that Williams should jiut some 
thought and planning into providing adequate 
housing for its married students to whom their 
responsibility does not end simply because they 
are married. This could be an opportunity for 
Williams to set an example to others in the Ivy 
League, who have taken an ostrich view of the 
married student and his family.

'Foreign Aid Vital 
To U.S. Future'-Ohly 

By John Phillips 
Manaiijng Editor 

Can America meet the Communist threat? "Not unless the 
United States mutual security jirograni can affect vasUy increased 
living standards, security and military protection lor the under- 
developed nations of the free world." 

These are the words of Career Weekend sjicaker John II. Ohly, 
a 1933 Williams graduate who now serves as Dejjuty Director of 
Program and Planning for the International Cooperation Admin- 
istration in Washington. 

A history major at Williams, Mr. Ohly enjoyed a ]iromising 
law career until 1940, when lie entered the War Department at 
the behest of Secretary of War Patterson. Since then, Mr. Ohly 
has been closely connected with operations in botli Statu and 
Defense departments, serving as Assistant to the Director of the 
Mutual Security Program initil the l.dA.'s organization two years 

The I.e. A., successor to the Federal 0]ierations .\dniinistra- 
tion (F.O.A. ), is currently operating in 80 countries with empha- 
sis on those which are underdevelo'ied. It administers ]iast pro- 
grams including Military Assistance, Truman's Point Four (tech- 
nical assistance), and the Eui()]iean Recovery Program. Tims its 
operations cover military, agricultural, and economic fields. Pre- 
sent plans include such operations as complete elimination of ma- 
laria from the earth within five vears. 

One of the most difficult problems facing the I.C.A. is tlie 
formulation of government jiolicy which can be effective for long- 
range purposes. Mr. Ohly felt that two years of ])lanning might 
lead to a more comjirehensive solution, but the immediacy of the 
need renders this method inijiossible. 

Mr. Ohly views the foreign security program as "hidispen- 
sable to the preservation of our world position". He says simply 
that if these development programs fail, "this country does not 
have a future as a free nation; the pressures apjilied by Com- 
munism and necessitv in underdeveloped countries will steadily 
contract the extent and )iowcr of the free world until the U. S. 
jiosition becomes untenable."

Bi/ Charles II. '58 I 

How can the two lectures recently delivered by Union Theo- 
logical Seminary's Dr. James Muilenburg be appraised? 

Surveys indicate Hiat while they were generally well received 
many undergraduates complained that they were more awed than 

What actually can be exjiected from two one hour lectm-es? 
Under these circumstances Uie most that could be accomplished 
would be a stimulation of tlie audience into pursuing the subject 
further on their own. 

Dr. Muilenburg stated that diis was the basic purpose of his 
lectures and that as long as man is reflective and asks of life "what 
does this mean?" then he is well on his way towards seeking a place 
on which to stand and work out his beliefs. 

Let us turn the question around now and ask how can Uie 
undergraduate audience be appraised. Many comiilain that they 
are religiously uncommitted, or at least confused, empty . . . and 

Maybe we are seeking knowledge in the wrong way. Did we 
expect Dr. Muilenburg to convince us diat we could trust the Bi- 
ble because it was literally true? Can diat "wee small voice in- 
side" really exist on barren literal facts? 

Certainly we must listen to "the community of historical men" 
who have achieved a faith diat diere is a purpose behind history, 
and have received the necessary courage to face the future. Cer- 
tainly we must listen to our own intuitive response evoked by the 
events and words interpreted in die Bible's narrative, symbol and 
poetry. And above all we must respect our feelings of awe and 
consciousness that something has "broken through" to us.

Freshman Hockey Tie; 
Hawkins Drills In Two 

A break in the weather last Saturday allowed the Freshman 
hoekey team to S(|ueeze in its seeoiid j^aiiie of the year as it played 
to a 4-4 overtime draw with the Taft Sehool at Watertowii, Comi- 
ectieut. Handieapped by a lack of game experience, the Eph year- 
lings were out-jiositioned by Taft. 

Williams <)|)eiied the scoring in the first period as Nick Ohly 
took a feed from Larry Hawkins in the center and drilled it home. 
Taft retaliated in the same stanza

he Williams Hockey Team re- 
18 its season against the Uni- 
:lty of Massachusetts today at 
lerst after a three week lay- 

tying the score after a scramble in 
front of the nets. 

score 2-2 Hawkins earned his 
third point of the day by picking 
up a loose puck In his offensive 
zone, beating the defenseman, and 
lighting the lamp from fifteen feet. 
Taft made It three all on a break- 
away In the productive second per- 
iod, but soon after Tony Stout 
sent Williams ahead 4-3 on a drive 
from Inside the blue line. 

Williams Pressed 

The final game-tying goal came 
at about twelve minutes of the 
same period. The third period was 
scoreless as Taft displayed tremen- 
dous hustle and backchecking, 
which kept Williams lied up. In 
the five minute overtime the 
freshmen kept the puck in the 
Taft zone but failed to score. 

U. of Mass. has already lost to 
Amherst 2-0. Consequently, the 
showing against Massachusetts 
should be some indication of the 
outcome of Saturday's game a- 
galnst Amherst here. 

Williams goes into this game 
with a 4-6 record. This will be the 
sixth game since 1953. Williams 
has yet to be beaten by U. of Mass., 
defeating them last year by a 4-3 

Captain Dave Cook, leading goal 
scorer for Williams, was injured 
during a practice session last week 
when a stick cut him just above 
the eye. The chances are pretty 
good, however, that Cook will see 
action today as well as Saturday 
against Amherst.

Siena College will furnish the 
opposition tomorrow night as the 
Williams varsity basketball team 
plays the second of a three game 
home stand. The contest will be at 
the Lasell gym at 8:15 p.m. 

Siena Losses 

The visiting Indians have drop- 
ped their last four games and now 
hold a 4-6 record for the season. 
In the Union College toui-nament 
Siena lost only to their hosts af-

Balanced Teams 

Siena is not a tall team and 
can be expected to play controll- 
ed ball with smooth offensive pat- 
terns and weaves. The visitors 
have no single offensive standout 
but will rely heavily on the re- 
bounding and shooting of Pat 
Martone, who won a berth on the 
Union tournament all-star team. 
Against the balance of Siena Wil- 
liams will use an attack centered 
around junior high-scorer Jeff 
Morton but can be expected to 
show a better fast break and more 
team speed than in their earlier

As alumni were speakinp; at the openinj» 
forimi of Career Weekend Friday in tire AMT, 
technicians sent the first American satellite- 
carryinjr rocket into the night sky above Cape 

At Williams the relation between these two 
events became significant at the Saturday af- 
ternoon panel on education. It was the best-at- 
tended panel of the weekend. 

Because the East- West strategic duel will be 
won or lost by our generation in the classroom, 
this high interest in education is encouraging. 

Career Weekend is, and should be, an in- 
creasingly popular Williams institution. It gives 
the student valuable advice and information to 
help him plan his future. 

The forum Friday night, where four alumni 
spoke on the necessary qualifications for suc- 
cess, was too long and repetitive. One can say 
only so much on this subject, and each man 
said much the same thing. This forum— except 
as a somewhat contrived "opening salvo" for 
the weekend— could be dispensed with in the 
future unless a wider and more interesting vari- 
ety of subjects can be discussed. 

The panels on business, government work, 
and the professions— although they varied widely 
in quality— were on tlie whole valuable. 

Probably the most important part of the 
weekend was the personal contact between the 
students and the invited alumni. It was from this 
that the most was learned. 

Thanks must go to Mr. Copeland, the stu- 
dents, faculty, and especially the alumni who 


Last Satiirday tlie Recoiid received a point- 
less New Year's j^reetiiig from Communist Clii- 

Postmarked iii Peking, it was sent to us by 
the All-China Student t<ederation. Wishing us 
"Best New Year Wishes for Peace, FrieudshiiD 
and Happiness," it included a gaily-colored jjic- 
tuie of a cat with a fish iu its paws— somewhat 
suggestive of an ad for the Chesapeake and Ohio 

The card was a pleasant— though meaning- 

We wish that they could have sent us some 
substantial information. In any newspaper we 
can read about development projects in the 
Yangtze River Basin, but a direct personal con- 
tact—beyond a mere cat on a New Year's card- 
has great value. 

This lack of direct contact is unfortunate. 

Witli no such contact tlie people of both na- 
tions can develop quite distorted ideas about 
each odier. A striking example of this kind of 
distortion was a woman iu a Central Asian So- 
viet republic who asked Aithur Koestler in 
1932 whetlier America was rmi by Negroes. 

Such false knowledge can nm-ture fear be- 
tween America and Communist China. 

And this fear darkens the prospect of our 
Hving at peace witli tire generation of Chinese 
who wished us "friendship and happiness." 

Letters To The Editor 


To the Record: 

Although I 110 longer live in the Barracks, 
I tiiink that it is time that someone said ])ublicly 
what many have been saying privately. Granted 
the couples living in the Barracks are probably 
some of the happiest. We are all glad to be mar- 
ried and to be able to be togetlier even tiiough 
it means living in substandard housing. How- 
ever, the fact remains that they are cold, dirty, 
cellarless, and firetiaps. You get them comfort- 
ably warm in tlie winter and the first floor a- 
partments overtax the kerosene stoves to an 
extent that always causes the workmen to give 
out warnings but one will try to keep warm 
even if dangers are involved. 

We brought our new baby back to the Bar- 
racks last January when it was an unusual 28 
below, and we wondered which would give out 
first; the baby, the stove, or us. I won't go into 
the difficulties of heating water, cooking on a 
kerosene stove, constant overloading of the elec- 
trical system, the paper thin walls and the lovely 
kerosene odor that permeates the Barracks 
dweller and follows him everywhere. 

It may appear inappreciative to attack "tem- 
porary" Barracks after the college has just paint- 
ed them, but it is time that Williams and other 
schools like her realized that the married stu- 
dent is here to stay. Large schools across the 
nation have built permanent married student 
housing, where one third of the student popula- 
tion is married. Here there must be 15 or 20 
married students living hither and yon, and ap- 
parently more every year join the ranks. 

It seems that Williams should put some 
thought and planning into providing adequate 
housing for its married students to whom their 
responsibility does not end simply because they 
are married. This could be an opportunity for 
Williams to set an example to others in the Ivy 
League, who have taken an ostrich view of the 
married student and his family.

'Foreign Aid Vital 
To U.S. Future'-Ohly

Can America meet the Connnimist threat? "Not unless the 
United States mutual security jirograni can affect vastly increased 
living standards, security and military iirotectioii for tiie under- 
developed nations of the free world" 

These are the words of Career Weekend S|)eaker John II. Ohly, 
a 1933 Williams graduate who now serves as Uejjuty Director of 
Program and Planning for the International Cooperation Admin- 
istration in Washington. 

A history major at Williams, Mr. 
law career until 1940, when lie entere 
the behest of Secretary of War Palter 
has been closely connected witli ope 
Defense departments, serving as AssisI 

Mutual Security Program until the I.C./\. .^ o. ;:,<...... ^ 


The I.e. A., successor to the Federal Operations Administra- 
tion (F.O.A.), is currently operating in 80 countries with em|5ha- 
sis on those which are underdevel()|)ed. It administers past pro- 
grams including Military Assistance, Truman's Point Four (tech- 
nical assistance), and the Eiuopean Recovery Program. Tlius its 
operations cover military, agricultural, and economic fields. Pre- 
sent plans include such operations as comjjlete elimination of ma- 
laria from the earth within five years. 

One of the most difficult problems facing the I.C.A. is tire 
formulation of govenuneiit |jolicy wiiich can be effective for long- 
range purposes. Mr. Ohly felt that two years of plainiing might 
lead to a more comprehensive solution, but the immediacy of the 
need renders this method impossible. 

Mr. Ohly views the foreign security program as "indispen- 
sable to the preservation of our world position". He says simply 
that if these development programs fail, "this country does not 
have a future as a free nation; the pressures ai)pliea by Com- 
munism and necessity in underdevelojicd coimtries will steadily 
contract the extent and power of the free world until the U. S. 
position becomes untenable."

Bi/ Charles 11. '58 i 

How can the two lectures recently delivered by Union Theo- 
logical Seminary's Dr. James Muilenburg be appraised? 

Surveys indicate diat while they were generally well received 
many undergraduates complained that they were more awed than 

What actually can be expected from two one hour lectures? 
Under these circumstances the most that could be accomj^lishcd 
would be a stimulation of the audience into pursuing the subject 
further on their own. 

Dr. Nhiilenburg stated that this was the basic purpose of his 
lectures and that as long as man is reflective and asks of life "what 
does this mean'?" then he is well on his way towards seeking a place 
on which to stand and work out his beliefs. 

Let us turn the question around now and ask how can the 
undergraduate audience be appraised. Nhiny complain that they 
are religiously uncommitted, or at least confused, empty . . . and 

Maybe we arc seeking knowledge in the wrong way. Did we 
expect Dr. Muilenburg to convince us that we could trust the Bi- 
ble because it was literally true? Can that "wee small voice in- 
side" really exist on barren literal facts? 

Certainly we must listen to "the comminuty of historical men" 
who have achieved a faith that there is a purpose behind history, 
and have received the necessary coinage to face the future. Cer- 
tainly we must listen to our own intuitive response evoked by the 
events and words interpreted in the Bible's narrative, symbol and 
poetry. And above all we must respect our feelings of awe and 
consciousness that something has "broken through" to us.

Freshman Hockey Tie'^ 
Hawkins Drilh In Two 

A break in the weather hist Saturday allowed the Freshman 
hoekey team to scjueeze in its seeond ^anie of the year as it played 
to a 4-4 overtime draw witli the Taft School at Watertown, Conn- 
ecticut. Handicapped by a lack of game ex])erienee, the Eph year- 
lings were out-positioned by Taft. 

Williams opened the scoring in the first period as Nick Ohly 
took a feeil from Larry Hawkins in the center and drilled it home. 
Taft retaliated in the same stanza 

Icemen To Reopen 

The Williams Hockey Team re- 
opens its season against the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts today at 
Amherst after a three week lay- 

tying the .score after a scramble in 
front of the nets, 

Stout Scores 

In the second period Taft went 
ahead 2-1 before Larry Hawkins 
sank a backhand shot while his 
team was a man down. With the 
score 2-2 Hawkins earned his 
third pKsint of the day by picking 
up a loose puck in his offensive 
zone, beating the defenseman, and 
lighting the lamp from fifteen feet. 
Taft made it three all on a break- 
away in the productive second per- 
iod, but soon after Tony Stout 
sent Williams ahead 4-3 on a drive 
from inside the blue line. 

Williams Pressed 

The final game-tying goal came 
at about twelve minutes of the 
same period. The third period was 
scoreless as Taft displayed tremen- 
dous hustle and backchecking, 
which kept Williams tied up. In 
the five minute overtime the 
freshmen kept the puck in the 
Taft zone but failed to score. 

U. of Mass. has already lost to 
Amherst 2-0. Consequently, the 
showing against Massachusetts 
should be some indication of the 
outcome of Saturday's game a- 
gainst Amherst here. 

Williams goes into this game 
with a 4-6 record. This will be the 
sixth game since 1953. Williams 
has yet to be beaten by U. of Mass., 
defeating them last year by a 4-3 

Captain Dave Cook, leading goal 
scorer for Williams, was injured 
during a practice session last week 
when a stick cut him just above 
the eye, The chances are pretty 
good, however, that Cook will see 
action today as well as Saturday 
against Amherst. 

Quintet mil Face 
Siena In Search 
For Fifth Victory 

Siena College will furnish the 
opposition tomorrow night as the 
Williams varsity basketball team 
play.s the second of a three game 
home stand. The contest will be at 
the Lasell gym at 8:15 p,m, 

Siena Losses 

The visiting Indians have drop- 
ped their last four games and now 
hold a 4-6 record for the season. 
In the Union College tournament 
Siena lost only to their hosts af- 
ter defeating R.P.I, and Hamilton, 
The Eph five holds an early sea- 
son victory over this same Union 

Balanced Teams 

Siena is not a tall team and 
can be expected to play controll- 
ed ball with smooth offensive pat- 
terns and weaves. The visitore 
have no single offensive standout 
but will rely heavily on the re- 
bounding and shooting of Pat 
Martone, who won a berth on the 
Union tournament all-star team. 
Against the balance of Siena Wil- 
liams will use an attack centered 
around junior high-scorer Jeff 
Morton but can be expected to 
show a better fast break and more 
team speed than in their earlier

Ms America's population, pro- 
duction and income continue to 
increase, so does the country's 
need for insurance in all its diverse 
aspects. And v^rith this ever-increasing 
need, there is a corresponding 
need for intelligent young executives 
—men who in turn will become the 
future leaders of the industry. 

More and more young men have 
found that an insurance career offers 
the prestige, the stimulation, and 
the opportunity they want-that it is 
literally an open window on the world. 

From oil wells to ocean liners, insurance plays an Impor- 
tant part in every pliase of commerce and industry . . . 

From tropical jungles to arctic waters, wherever Man's 
activities extend, insurance provides an instrument 
for peace of mind and protection against loss . . . 

From man-made fibres to atomic power plants, insurance 
matches new developments with new coverages, new plans, 
and continuing demand for initiative and imagination. 

One of the world's foremost insurance brokerage firms, Johnson & 
Higgins has provided and will continue to provide rewarding careers for 
young men who are capable of answering this challenge,

Coach Ostendarp To 
Accept Cornell Offer 

By John Philips 
Manag^ing Editor 

Coaching ability rarely escajjes recognition or reward. Coach 
Jim Ostendarp's ability has long hecTi recognized. His reward was 
inevitable, and he informed Ath- 
letic Director Prankie Thorns last 
Saturday that he had accepted a 
coaching position with Cornell 

His new position at Cornell will 
entail duties as a defensive coach 
for varsity football in the fall, and 
as a lacrosse coach in the spring. 
He expects to ssume his new ca- 
pacity on July 1, 1958. 

Experience Here 

Mr. Ostendarp leaves Williams 
after three years of coaching 
which began in September, 1955. 
During his first year in Williams- 
lown, he directed one of the fin- 
ej. freshman football teams in 
Williams history. His squad cul- 
iiiinaled their undefeated season 
with a bone-crushing 52-0 victory 
over the Amherst frosh. 

Promoted to backfield coach of 
the varsity in 1956, Ostendarp's 
work in the past, as well as his 
scouting abilities, made an in- 
valuable contribution to this year's 
undefeated football season. 

Wrestling, I>acrosse 

In addition to his football 
chores, Mr. Ostendarp has served 
for three years as head wrestling 
coach, and this spring he will com- 
plete three seasons as coach of the 
varsity lacrosse team. 

When questioned about his de- 
parture, Mr. Ostendarp expressed 
regret about leaving Williams be- 
cause of the attachment he has 
felt for the school. He had special 
regrets, he said, about "leaving 
the boys; they taught me a lot". 

Coach Ostendarp played pro 
football with the New York Giants 
in 1952 before going to the Cana- 
dian football League. There he was 
voted the Most Valuable Player of 
the Year before coming to Wil- 


North Adams Blaze 
Guts Tenement House; 
Two Children Killed 

By Ernie Imhoft 
Feature Editor 

The most devastating North 
Adams fire in decades completely 
gutted a four-story tenement 
building on River Street early 
Wednesday moi-ning. 

Dead were two young children 
of the Edward P. Grey family 
while 31 other residents were made 
refugees in neighboring liomes. A 
third child, Doris Grey, 11, sister 
of the two killed was reported in 
good condition at the North Ad- 
ams Hospital after jumping from 
the top floor. 

Under Investigation 

The origin of the halocaust be- 
came the object of a full-scale 
probe launched Wednesday after- 
noon by the state Fire Marshall's 
office in Pittsfield and other of- 
ficials. The fire apparently start- 
ed in a second floor couch, quite 
possibly by a cigarette. 

The first alarm was sounded at 

0:30 and fire trucks arrived as 

smoke poured out of the third and 

fourth floor windows. Area Red

Election Change 
Rejected By CC 

From fear that It would "de- 
generate into a political circus" 
which would "corrode some of the 
solid conservatism" which is so 
"highly valued" on the Williams 
campus, the College Council, in 
a Tuesday meeting, rejected an 
imaginative plan submitted by 
Jack Betz and Dick Jackson for 
the revision of CC election proce- 

The plan proposed the use of 
nominating conventions and a 
majority system. The Council 
members felt that the mechanics 
of the plan could not be made 
practicable in the short time be- 
fore this year's election. They vot- 
ed unanimously to refer It back to 

A test on Sandy Hansen's plan 
for the typing of exams was re- 
ported successful, and the plan 
was submitted to the faculty. 

Faculty Lectures Hit 
Education, US Alliance 


What is the place of the busi- 
nessman in higher education? 
Professor Robert L. Gaudino gave 
his answers to this question in his 
lecture "Higher Education And 
The Man of Business," presented 
as part of the faculty lecture ser- 
ies Feb. 6. 

Gaudino said that businessmen 
select the president and other of- 
ficers of an educational institu- 
tion, determine its policy and con- 
trol its funds because of their po- 
sitions as trustees and regents. 

Although their opinion is often 
considered, "faculty and students 
can seldom claim a legal resort 
against these agents." The busi- 
nessmen have this position of pow- 
er because "their property, in 
name, possession and contact is of 
value to higher education." 

Public vs. Private 

Drawing the distinction between 
public and private education, Gau- 
dino said that public education 
produces critical, alert, intelligent 
citizens, while private education 
pursues truth for its own sake and 
for the sake of man's improve- 
ment. In his discussion of public 
education, Gaudino stated his be- 
lief that It is everyone's prefer- 
rential civil right and should be 
supported and protected. 

Continuing his distinction be- 
tween public and private higher 
education, he said that colleges 
give a "public" education because 
of the immaturity of the students, 
whose interest in learning is not 
yet fully developed. 

Universities, on the other hand, 
provide more mature students with 
a "private" education. 

No Compromise 

Gaudino stated that the pur-

That the United States entered 
World War I in order to main- 
tain the balance of power was ef- 
fectively refuted Wednesday night 
by President James P. Baxter III 
in the third of his current series 
of lectures sponsored by the So- 
cial Council. 

Baxter divided the problem of 
American alliances in the two 
world wars into two lectures. Next 
week he plans to contrast the 
causes of our intervention in 1917 
with those surrounding our dec- 
laration of war in 1941. 

Theodore Roosevelt wrote in 
1910 that if England capitulated 
the US would have to step in to 
maintain the balance of power. 
Although this was "extremely 
farsighted" Baxter contended 
there was no evidence to support 
the claim that the balance of pow- 
er was a factor in 1917's declara- 
tion. "We were pretty much kick- 
ed (into the war) by the Germans 
over the submarine controversy," 
he stated. "How far people were

College Police Track 
Book Thief Suspects 

By John Good 

"The Case of the Student Book 
Thief" is now closer to solution. 

Williams Bookstore owner Joe 
Dewey reported to the college 
police that a student had success- 
fully passed four of the allegedly 
stolen books. Dewey did not get 
the student's name at that time, 
but he searched through a number 
of freshman handbooks in order to 
link up the face with a name. 

Dewey selected several pictures, 
and on the basis of further des- 
cription the number of suspects 
was lowered. Since then Dewey 
has been on the alert. Although he 
was unable to make positive iden- 
tification of one of the prime sus- 
pects, the bookstore proprietor 
said that he was "pretty darn 
sure," that the student in question 
had passed the books. 

Other Booi(s Stolen 

Nearly 60 books have been sto- 
len. College Chief of Police George 
Royal reported that several more 
were taken within the last week. 
So far only six of the books have 
been passed in Williamstown. 

Although Dewey's identification 
of the student who sold the books 
here is helpful. Royal emphasized 
that this does not indicate that 
he is the only suspect involved, 
nor that he is definitely connect- 
ed with the thefts. 

It is not expected that the case 
will be closed by the weekend. This 
is the first occurrence of theft on 
so wide a scale at Williams. In the 
past there has been some petty 
thievery, but was believed to be 
mainly from the outside. Thus the 
college police force is especially 
anxious to clear up this case. 

General: Do not let your anxi- 
eties show. Quench .such habits as 
biting nails, playing tune." or voui' 
teeth, continual knuckle cracking 
(never hers), solitaire, juggling. 
Be winning. Be confident. Repeat 
ten times a day: "I am a man." 
Savour that word "man". Believe 
in it. 

2. Party Situations: These oc- 
casions are designed to bring out 
the most pleasing attributes of hu- 
man character. Do not neglect, 
however, to have fun; simple 
games such as yogi are a great 
help. Psychoanalysis of contempo- 
raries can provide exciting and 
stimulating recreation. 

On no occasion be what is call- 
ed "collegiate". Avoid excessive 
libations to Bacchus, not being 
conducive to lucid thought, judge- 
ment, or sight and impairing at- 
tainment of true intellectual 
heights. Immorality is evil, and

"Ah yes, I wrote the Purple Cow, 
I'm sorry now I wrote it. 
But I can tell you anyhow 
I'll kill you if you quote it." 

This rhyme, found among the back pages of 
the Winter Carnival edition of the Purple Cow, 
strikes terror into the heart of any would-be re- 
viewer. At tlie risk, however, of incurring such 
vengeance and stimulated especially by the new 
departure the Cow has taken, a few comments 
are in order. 

First of all, it must be known that the cur- 
rent issue is a hybrid. Combined with the humor 
are twenty some pages of what used to be a 
separately published program for Carnival e- 
vents. The format is attractive, there are clever 
drawings adjacent, and the articles are entitled 
with humorous quips. Despite all this, though, 
and despite the good will of the Cow in provid- 
ing a program for the weekend, it is a disturbing 

Disturbing for the reason that the Cow 
should not have to combine with an object of 
an entirely different function. Williams College 
should be able to support a Humor Magazine, a 
Literary Magazine, a Political Forum, and a 
Newspaper— each for its own merit. But this 
must be continued outside a review— and a very 
favorable one— of the creative section of the Pwr- 
ple Cow. 

The most ambitious efforts are several paro- 
dies of familiar prose styles. E. J. Johnson, writ- 
ing under the pen name of Victoria Youngblood, 
tells the touching story of a slightly mis-guided 
young lady of society— a hi Francoise Sagan. 
For obvious reasons this will be the most ap- 
pealing story, although John Burghardt has per- 
haps a more skillful parody of Joseph Conrad's 

Editor Tony Distler, then, relies on several 
traditions to complete the magazine. The most 
tiresome of these leftovers is "Norman Vincent 
Pile" who apparently forgot many drawers full 
of copy when he left school two years ago. Also 
Distler revives a feature on skiing, the pictures 
of which look awfully familiar. How could any- 
one forget the most photogenic skier at Wil- 
liams, Geoff Swift? 

A delightful cartoon appears on page two in 
which a ladder, leaning against the "climb high, 
climb far . . ." gate, is seen disappearing into the 
sky. Footprints in the snow lead up to it. With 
more of the same talent, and with a supporting 
interest which would allow it to be itself— not 
a hybrid The Purple Cow could approach this 
ladder of excellence. 

Career Weekend Analysis 

Editor's Note: Mr. Coffin viacle some con- 
troversial remarks about career weekend last 
Sundai/. We asked him to develop them into an 
article, which follows: 

by William S. Coffin . 
College Chaplain 

Everyone must have been impressed by the 
organization of Career Weekend, the result of 
much time and effort put in by Manty Copeland, 
Jim Stevens and others. Everyone should also 
have been impressed by the willingness of the 
many panelists to come. Let's face it, I don't 
care where you start, Williams is an awful place 
to get to. 

I take it the Saturday jjanelists were asked to 
speak about the "nuts and bolts" of their jobs 
and professions. The one I heard did just this 
very well. I didn't hear any weaknesses men- 
tioned but I didn't expect to; after all there was 
a certain amount of competitive rec .xiiting going 

The Friday night panel, however, was sup- 
posed to be different. "Climb High, Climb Far: 
Why?" "From Scholarshi]> to Dollarship"— these 
titles called for a broader, more critical approach, 
for an effort to relate a man's work to his life, 
a weighing of values, a balancing of pros and 
cons, a facing up to dilenunas. But not a con, 
not a dilemma was mentioned. Instead we heard 
the usual cliches— "Of course there is some con- 
formity but there is plenty of individualism;" 
individuality is essential to success—" phrases 
without meaning until further defined. 

At first I thought the avoidance of any dis- 
cussion of dilemmas deliberate. But as the dis- 
cussion period wore on, it became apparent, at 
least to me, that the panelists were not talking 
about dilemmas simply because they did not 
consider them live issues. For instance, when 
pressed to analyze the question of conformity, 
the panelists summarily dismissed all literature 
on the subject as "extremist" and kindly counsel- 
ed the questioning student not to worry. 

Every sensitive business and professional 
man knows his job is full of unavoidable dilem- 
mas. To mention just a few moral ones: adver- 
tisers in an economy of abundance have to make 
luxury items into necessities; salesmen have to 
persuade people to buy things they obviously 
don't need, moreover, in downpayments that 
hurt in times, like ours, of recession; journalists 
are called upon to conform to a certain line of 
thinking and writing; lawyers are asked to prove 
people morally wrong, legally right. And many 
members of every profession have the enormous 
psychological problein of self-realization, when 
work becomes only a job to be done instead of a 
vocation in which one can fine intrinsic meaning. 

Mr. Auer, I think, did get at this last dilem- 
ma in a very indirect way. At one point he said, 
"If you are cynical, don't go into business." The 
implication to me was that to question the value 
of an enterprise was to be cynical. And the fur- 
ther implication was that one must read a value 
into a job when it is not intrinsically there. This 
solution was echoed Saturday by an advertising 
man: "Don't go into advertising unless you love 
it with a passion." Isn't it significant that never 
once in the course of the Friday evening speeches 
was it suggested that a man draws satisfaction 
from the value of the product he manufactures 
or sells? This suggests that business must often 
be considered a game, which is exactly how many 
salesmen, for example do think of it. But isnt 
it light-hearted to consider a business a 'game 
when its consequences for all involved are far 
more serious than those of a game? All these 
dilemmas strike me as real and worthy of dis- 

Mr. Auer— and I can pick on him because he 
obviously can strike back very ably— quoted a 
friend as saying that he had 'Tjeat a hasty re- 
treat" from business into teaching. I think I am 
right in thinking that Mr. Auer also would con- 
sider the move a retreat. The "real" world is the 
world of business and I'm inclined to agree with 
him. Most teachers— and preachers— live in a 
slightly tmrcal world because we are rarely ask- 
ed to make the agonizing compromises which the 
vicissihides of other professions necessitate. ( See 
"By Love Possessed.") But any businessman 
who is unaware of the dilemmas of life (unlike 
Arthur Winner) is also "beating a hasty retreat." 
In fact, he has just reached the last line of de- 
fense, which, for any man confronted by dilem- 
mas he cannot face, is always to deny their exist- 
ence. For this reason, the presentation of the real 
world of business struck me as very unreal Fri- 
day evening.

Students majoring in .science, like all other American 
students, have a wild yearniiifr for culture, hut, alas, 
when a student is after a degree in engineering or math 
or like that, he simply does not have time to lake all the 
hberal arts coiusos his heart pines for. 

And what is being done about this unhappy situation? 
I'll tell you what: lOnliglitoned corporations everywhere 
are setting up on-the-jol) liberal arts programs for the 
newly employed scienee graduate — courses designed to 
broaden his cultural base — for the enlightened corpora- 
tion realizes that, tlie truly cultured employee is the truly 
valuable emi)loyop. 

Take, for example, Lamhswool Sigafoos. 

A week after his graduation, Lambswool reported to 
Mr. Femur, tiie personnel director of an enlightened cor- 
poration engaged in the manufacture of cotter pins and 
wing mits. "How do you do?" said Laml)swo(jl. "I'm 
Lambswool Sig.'ifoos ;uid I've come to work." 

"Sit down," said Mr. luMnur, chuckling kindly. "Have 
a Marlboro." 

"Thaids you," said Lambswool. "I like Marlboros. 
I like their filter and their flavor." 

"Me loo," said Mr. I''cnun', blinking humanely. "And I 
like their (lip-top box. When my flip-top box of Marlboros 
is empty, I use it to keep fish hooks in." 

"Know what I do when my flip-top box of Marlboros 
i.-^ empty?" asked Lambswool. 

"What?" said Mr. I''cmur, sniggering graciously. 

"1 buy siinie more Marlboros." said Lambswool. 

".\ sound idea," said Mr. Femur, vibrating fetchingly. 
"But enough chit-chat, ("ome along to the campus." 

"Campus?" said Lambswool, puzzled. "But I've come 
to woik. Take me to my drawing board." 

"This is an eidightencd corporation," said Mr. l''emur, 
yodelling viciously. "First you nuist get your cultural 
base broadened." 

Mr. Fenuu- took Lambswool to Ibc training campus, 
which looked like any other campus. It had ivy-covered 
buildings, dormitories, fraternity and sorority houses, a 
stadium, a deer park, and a moat. Lambswool was given 
a loommate, a beanie, and copies of the company hymn 
and rou.ser, and the enlightened coriwration proceeded to 
fill the gaj) in his culture. 

First he was taught to read, then to print capital letters, 
then capital and small letters. Then there was an attempt 
to teach him script, but it was ultimately abandoned. 

From these fundamentals, Lambswool progressed slowly 
but steadily through the more complex discii)liiies. He 
was diligent, and the corporation was patient, and in the 
end they were rewarded, for when Lambswool finished, 
he could play a clavier, compose a triolet, parse a sentence, 
and identify the hirthsloiie for every month of the year. 

His lengthy .schooling finally over, Lambswool was 
assigned to an important executive position where he 
served with immense distincfion. . . .Not, however, for 
long, because one week later he reached retirement age. 

Today, still spry, he lives in St. Petersburg, Florida, 
where he supplements his pension by parsing sentences 

fur tourists.

It is not expected that the voice 
of human emotion expressed by 
the rockin-and-roUin Clovers will 
bear close resemblance to the mu- 
sical feelings of Mr. MacPart- 
land's trumpet. This discrepancy, 
however, is just one of the factors 
that should make the concert an 
interesting one. 

On a common ground of jazz 
improvisation, against a rhythmic 
framework, each of the groups 
presented will be able to offer 
their own distinctive interpreta- 
tion of the art. 

The Clovers 

Since Rhythm and Blues has 
become so popular over the past 
few years, the Houseparty Com- 
mittee felt that something along 
this line should be offered during 
the weekend. 

Fortunately for Williams The 
Clovers is a very swinging vocal 
six of nation-wide acclaim. With 
Buddy Bailey as head tenor, this 
group insists on teamwork not 
only in their vocal arrangements, 
bjt also in their showmanship. 

It is sometimes difficult to pin 
d wn that attribute which makes 
a gro.ip of this sort stand head- 

j. ;;.oiilders above any other. 

To really appreciate their talent 

one must try to feel it, see it, and 

— most Important of all — hear it. 

Unity and Drive 

After catching their act a few 
months ago, I was quite impress- 
ed by the unity and characteris- 
tic drive expressed by these Ne- 
gro musicians. Their sound vocal 
abilities are further enhanced by 
the clownish sideplay and the bop- 

Electric guitar player Bill Har- 
ris is perhaps the most interesting 
component of the aggregation. A 
fine rock-'n-RoIl guitarist, he is 
definitely the coolest man since 
the Ice Age. 

Anyone who has heard The Clo- 
ver.s sing their popular recordings 
of "Love, Love, Love," "I Got My 

Fluid Expression 

Eyes on You," or "Lovey Dovey," 
knows their vocal vitality. 

Since 1950, when first organized, 
these young singers have been 
widely recognized as the greatest 
Rhythm and Blues group this side 
of the Pecos. 


Jimmy MacPartland's Band, 
featured for the second half of 
the concert, will Include Pee Wee 
Russell on clarinet and Bud Free- 
man on tenor sax. 

These musicians, along with a 
few others, will undoubtedly be 
introduced as a Dixieland band. It 
is evident, however, that this is a 
pick-up group, and will probably 
sound as such. This cannot be 
blamed on the caliber of the mu- 
sicians themselves. They are, after 
all, musical strangers. 

Since Mr. MacPartland last re- 
corded in 1956, and has been re- 
cently involved with the acting 
profession, it is extremely difficult 
to tell how he will be playing on 
Saturday night. If his horn is as 
good now as it has been in the 
past, however, Jimmy should be 

Bix's Protegee 

Although Mr. MacPartland is 
over fifty years old, he still plays 
with the conviction shown by the 
young man he came East to re- 
place in 1925 — Bix Beiderbecke. 
Bix, the finest white Dixie triun- 
peter of all time, has said of his 
protege that, next to himself, 
MacPartland is the greatest. Both 
men play a lilting chorus and have 


Frosh Architects Build 
Gigantic "^"^King Winter 

By Dave Maddox 

A thirty foot monolith of gleaming snow rising from the ashes 
of the Fall's football bonfires stands as a monument to the artistic 
ability and perseverance of the Williams Man, mainly of the '61' 

Responsible for the erection of the first "all-college" snow 
statiie of such monumental stature are Tom Fox, chairman of the 
Snow Committee, and Jack Foster, Publicity Chairman of the W. 
O. C. The original design was a product of the imaginative artistry 
of Larry "Picasso" Nilsen and is entitled, for those who couldnt 
guess, King Winter. 


One member of the Williamstown Street Crew, donator of 
the snow, reported that as he was cleaning up "lichtey-split" on 
Spring Street he scored a near miss on an allegedly "batman-like" 
figure. The college ground crews with their power equipment were 
of inestimable assistance to the mound-builders in their task of 
piling the snow into one massive pyramid. 

Further strategy for the construction was concocted in a 
meeting of the members of the Snow Committee; Tom Fox, Bill 
Reineke, Hugh Brigham, Larry Mahoney, Dick Dodds, and silent 
partners Al Bogatey, and Jim Frick. Armed with ideas pilfered 
from Dartmouth they forged ahead in fabricating the rough out- 
line upon which the final outlines were moulded. 

In pursuit of this task the twenty shovels that had been pur- 
chased were reduced to nineteen, one having been buried in the 
Gargantua's left shoulder. It is hoped that none of the students 
missing since Mid Terms will be unearthed come Spring. 
Etude en Neif^e 

Due to the adversities of warm weather over the Mid Term 
breather a frantic last minute rush was necessitated. At one stage 
in its construction the statue was entitled Etude en Neige. 

The central supporting telephone pole protruding from the 
snowy pile inspired cosmopolitan wit Larry Mahoney to dub the 
constniction "Whisker With Lather". Tlic final moulding of the 
statue began with the stomach, leading one of the workers to quip 
that man always thinks of his belly first. 

a smooth, fluid expression of mu- 
sical ideas. 

Jimmy, happily, Is far from a 
dyed-in-the-wool, two-beat Dixie- 
lander. He swings. This musician 
is not so helplessly bogged down 
in the Dixieland one-step and New 
Orleans Creole that he cannot ac- 
cept a more contemporary ap- 
proach to his music. 

Because he has been willing to 
accept change, MacPartland has 
been a consistently good trumpet 
player over the years. Do not ex- 
pect typical prohibition-era mu- 
sic. This is a man who has grown 
up with his art. 

Bud Fi-eeman, MacPartland's 
most interesting sideman, is re- 
garded the only significant saxo- 
phone man in Dixieland today. He 
has spent many years playing with 
top Dixie groups throughout the 

8 Competitions Build Up Carnival 

This is a story of eight contests and six winners. 

According to calculations by the Class of 1960, sponsors of 
the current festivity, 700 dates have been made by Williams men 
for the weekend, establi.shing a new record. 

Alpha Delta Phi reported 57 of 58 members planning to have 
dates. Runners up in this competition included Chi Psi (46), 
Beta Theta Pi (41) and Phi Gamma Delta (38). Closely following 
this contest is the judging of fraternal snow sculpture in a com- 
jjetition sponsored annually (in the event of snow) by the WiUiams 
Outing Club. 

Goaded by the soijhomores' offer of a free cocktail party for 
the freshman entry with the largest percentage of dates. East Leh- 
man won the high pressure race within the class of '61. Entry B of 
Sage just missed the prize. 

The most usual thing about the weekend, according to the 
statisticians, is tliat more Smithies are around than anyone else. 
Eighty of them. And then there are also lots of Mt. Holyoke girls, 
Skidmore girls, Vassar girls, and Wellesley girls (in that order). 
Due to an ill timed Non Resident Term, Bennington finished a 
poor sixth. 

A competition to see what social unit can sell the largest 
number of advance tickets to Jimmy MacPartland's jazz was un- 
decided at press time. Beta Theta Pi was unofficially in the lead 
to win six bottles of domestic champagne offered.

Tense Win By Capers 
During Final Seconds 

The Williams varsity basketball 
team upset a favored Springfield 
College club 57-56 last Tuesday 
night at Lasell Gymnasium In one 
of the most thrilling games of the 
year. Jeff Morton paced the Ephs 
with 30 points and his usual fine 
all-around performance. It re- 
mained, however, for two sopho- 
mores to come off the bench to 
win the game for Williams. 

In the first half, the play was 
sloppy. Springfield led 25-23. In 
the second half, both the play 
and the excitement picked up 
considerably. Morton began to 
score from every conceivable an- 
gle as the lead changed hands in- 
numerable times. 

As the game began to draw to 
a close, sophomores George Boyn- 
ton and J. B. Morris entered the 
lineup. Springfield took the lead 
54-53 with about two minutes re- 
maining; Boynton was then fouled 
and under extreme pressure, coolly 
walked to the line and sank two 
free throws as the large partisan 
crowd went wild. The score now 
read Williams 55, Springfield 54. 
The Maroons then lost the ball, 
and with a minute and 23 seconds 
left to play, Williams employed a

freeze, waiting for the sure shot. 
A pass, however, went astray, and 
Springfield surged ahead 56-55 on 
a one hander with 14 seconds left. 
Now, it was Morris' turn; J. B., 
bringing the ball up, was fouled by 
Sullivan. He calmly converted his 
two free throws thus giving Wil- 
liams its 57-56 victory. 

Sextet Wins 6-1; 
Burgert Shatters 
First Period Tie 

The varsity hockey team, notch- 
ed their fifth victory Wednesday 
night by a 6-1 score over the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts on Am- 
herst's dimly lit Orr rink. Wil- 
liams dominated the play in the 
first and third period but was 
constantly denied by the sharp 
goaltending of Joe DeMasselis. 

The Redmen were practically 
helpless in the opening minutes 
of the contest and were unable to 
put together a real scoring threat 
until midway in the period. Wil- 
li.^ms failed to capitalize until 
15:55 of the first period when Tom 
Piper stepped in from the point 
and hit the far corner with a low 
slapshot. The equalizer came three 
minutes later on a backhand by 
Pozzo, U. Mass. right wing, and 
the period ended a 1-1 tie. 

Woody Burgert opened the scor- 
ing in the second frame by knock- 
ing in a rebound to give the Eph- 
men the winning margin. At the 
thirteen minute mark Jim PMsher 
netted one to increase the lead 
to 3-2 as Williams showed increas- 
ing poise on their scoring oppor- 

Three goals in the third period 
put the score up to 6-1. Mike

Frosh Suffer Defeat 

Scoring forty-six points in the 
second half, the Springfield fresh- 
man basketball team defeated the 
Eph frosh 82-69 at Lasell gymna- 
sium Tuesday night. 

Driving and fast-breaking well, 
the Maroon yearlings increased a 
slim 36-36 lead at the half to a 
twelve point bulge at the three 
quarter mark. Hitting on shots 
from all over the court, the 
Springfield mai'ksmen posted an 
amazing 62 per cent shooting av- 
erage in the second half. 

Merton of Springfield was high 
scorer with 22. The Williams squad 
was led by Weaver with 18. Guz-

Eph Ski Coach Hurt; 
Brother Takes Team 

Going against the toughest com- 
petition of the season, the Wil- 
liams ski team will be without the 
services of their coach Ralph 
Townsend. Coach Townsend suf- 
fered a torn achilles tendon In an 
accident on the Dartmouth down- 
hill course last Saturday. 

The injury will keep Townsend 
completely inactive for 10 to 14 
days. Complete recovery is pre- 
dicted but coaching activities will 
be greatly curtailed. 

Dartmouth Offers Help 

Tuesday of this week, Mr. Prank 
Thoms, Director of Athletics re- 
ceived a telegram from Rand Doc, 
president of the Dartmouth Out- 
ing club, offering "specialized per- 
sonnel and equipment as aids to 
Its friend Ralph Townsend . . ." 
Mr. Thoms and Mr. Townsend 
both expressed their sincere ap- 
preciation for the gesture. 

During the Carnival, and it Is 
hoped through the Middlebury 
meet. Coach Townsend's older 
brother Paul will take the team. 
Both brothers were on the 1950 
United States World Champion- 
ship Team.

Tomorrow, the East's finest ski- 
ers will be shooting down the fa- 
mous Thunderbolt Trail on Mt. 
Greylock under ideal conditions. 
Packing has been proceeding well 
all week and the trail was in top 
shape as the Ephmen started to 
warm up Thursday. 

The downhill record for the cui'- 
rent Thunderbolt course was set 
at last year's Carnival by Chic 
Igaya of Dartmouth at 01:14.6. 
Better conditions will prevail this 
year and the time may be lowered. 
Three outstanding downhill men 
will take a crack at beating Iga- 
ya's record. They are: Gary 
Vaughn of Norwich, Dave Har- 
wood of Dartmouth, and his class- 
mate Bill Smith. 

This year's Winter Carnival has 
been picked as one of the top ski 
meets of the season. Competing 
in the Williams Carnival will be 
teams from Dartmouth, Harvard, 
Yale, Middlebury, St. Lawrence, 
Un. of Vermont, Un. of New 
Hampshire, and Norwich. Middle- 
bury did not compete in the Dart- 
mouth Carnival and is picked as 
second favorite behind Dartmouth. 
Also contending for top places 
will be Norwich, and Williams. 
Jumping Improved 
Eph scoring hopes rest on the 
shoulders of its co-captains Jim 
Becket and Chip Wright. They 
will head both the downhill and 
slalom teams for Williams backed 
up by sophomore Bill Judson and 
junior George Fisher. Williams is 
weakest in the jumping but the 
steady improvement of Bill 
Booth, the only veteran, and Cliff 
Colwell should give the team a 
better placing than in the Dart- 
mouth meet. 

For interested spectators, the 
most ideal spot for both the down- 
hill and slalom is "Hell Dive", 
halfway up the 1.35 mile Thun- 
derbolt trail. Cross-country will be 
held at Savoy State Forest Sun- 
day morning. Jumping will be at 
Goodell Hollow Sunday afternoon.

Co-Captains Score 

Leading the scoring parade for 
Williams were co-captains Buck 
Robinson, Neil Devaney, and Ter- 
ry Allen, as each set a new fresh- 
man record in his event. Robin- 
son posted a time of 1;10,4 in the 
100-yd. breaststroke, naiTowly 
nipping Bruce Harper of Williams 
at the finish. Devaney shaved a 
full second off the old record in 
winning the 100-yd. butterfly in 
the time of 1:01,4, and Allen 
turned in the record time of 1:39, 
9 in the 150-yd. individual medley. 

Devaney and Robinson teamed 
with Jim Urbach and Sam Bober- 
son in winning the 200-yd. medley 
relay in the record time of 1:40,9. 
The 100-yd. freestyle was one of 
the most exciting events of the 
meet as Mike Dively of Williams 
pushed Hotchkiss' Bob McMaster 
to set a new prep record of 54,4.

Indignation ran high when the 
British declared the entire North 
Sea a battle area because it was 
a restriction of the neutral trade 
of the U. S. As a reprisal for this 
illegal (in international law) ac- 
tion, the Germans declared an 
equally illegal blockade of the Bri- 
tish isles. The US, he said, com- 
mitted legal crimes of equal mag- 
nitude when it had become offi- 
cially a belligerent. He therefore 
held that the "moral" indignation 
in this country was the result of 
the "God given right of neutrals 
to make money from somebody 
else's bloodshed." 

He raised the question, "Can we 
live with a long atomic stale- 
mate?" in the light of the sub- 
marine problem. He called the US 
a "very tempestuous" nation. 
"When we have a problem, we 
want to get it over with." 

Wilson's leadership at Versailles 
was called one of the most un-

Minor Accidents 
Dampen Weekend 

Houseparty Weekend did not go 
without a compliment of accidents 
caused largely by an unexpected 
blizzard. With Williams students 
experiencing a variety of trans- 
portation difficulties, no serious 
accidents had been reported as of 
Monday afternoon. 

The most extensive damage re- 
ported occurred when Bruce J. 
McEldowney '59, hit a lumber 
truck Friday afternoon on Route 
116 near Cheshire. He and the 
six dates with him were released 
from Plunket Memorial Hospital 
in Adams with minor Injuries. 

James K. Snow struck a tele- 
phone pole in Pittsfield Friday 
night with four Simmons girls a- 
board. They were treated for 
bruises and cuts at the Pittsfield 
General Hospital. 

John Searles '60, ran Into a 
parked car by the Colonial Shop- 
ping Center. The parked automo- 
bile was owned by Bob R. Holdren,

"King Winter^^ Accused 
Of Conjuring Blizzard 

By Mack Hassler 
Executive Managing Editor 

King Winter imposed a bitter reign on Winter Carnival 1958. 

With his saucy head raised to the sky, one would almost think 
this jolly giant possessed supernatural powers, for the snow he 
conjured upon Williamstown was the biggest news of last week- 
end's houseparty. When it began sifting down Friday afternoon, 
the skiers were talking of six inches. When Les Elgart still had not 
arrived at midnight, nearly a foot had fallen on and around 
laughing King Winter. 

Timing was perfect, and it was a similar story for everyone 
trying to get into Williamstown. Elgart hitch-hiked from Peters- 
burg after his 1958 station wagon had skidded into a snow laank. 
One freshman, after making the almost five hour trip over to Al- 
bany to meet his girl, who was flying in, found that the plane 
had gone on to Boston. She caught a bus to Williamstown in 
time to say goodbye. 

"But can t/ou get out again" 

The Record reporter who wrote this caption under a snow pic- 
ture in the last issue was prophetic for the smothering conditions 
lasted through leaving time. Not only were couples unable to get 
to the ski events, but one student spent foiu' hours Sunday after- 
noon digging his girls car out of the drifts of West College park- 
ing lot. 

There were warm spots in the weekend, though, such as Ca- 
rol Starke, sophomore at Wheelock College, who was crowned 
Carnival Queen Saturday evening. At least .slie presented a less 
formidable and ominous aspect than King Winter. 

X-Rule' Takes Toll 

32 Men Leave School 
After First Semester 

Dean Barnett has disclosed that 
a total of 32 men, or 3 per cent of 
the college, have dropped out or 
been dismissed from College after 
the first semester. 

In an Interview held on Feb. 4, 
the Dean pointed out that 12 men 
were dismissed specifically for ac- 
ademic deficiency, and of the re- 
maining 20 men, "a large percent- 
age" only avoided this same fate 
by dropping out on their own ac- 
cord before the end of the semes- 

At this time last year while 27 
men had dropped out, only three 
had been dismissed, indicating a 

40 per cent increase for 1957-58. 
Questioned to the possible cause 
of this considerable jump, Dean 
Barnett stated: "A good share of 
this increase is due to a general 
tightening of academic standards, 
of which process the three C rule 
is the most prominent aspect." 

This rule proved to be the un- 
doing of five sophomores alone, 
taking a smaller toll among the 
upper two classes. 

Warning Issued 

This increase in failures is also, 
of course, an indicaiion of unsat- 
isfactory performance on the part

Seniors will choose permanent class officers in a special elec- 
tion meeting to be held in the near future. 

Each class will choose a president and secretary-treasurer; 
while the freshmen will select one College Council representative, 
the sophomores two and the juniors three. All tlie underclass of- 
ficers, plus two seniors, will form the 1958 College Council. 
Preferential Balloting: 

Despite a recent move in the CC 
to change the election procedure, 
the old method of preferential 
voting will be used. 

Nominations were made by pe- 
titions, which were due at mid- 
night Tuesday night. Each candi- 
date is automatically running for 
the presidency, while the "losers" 
with the largest vote totals will 
become the secondary officers. 

College Council Election Com- 
mittee chairman, Ted Wynne '58, 
observed that 100 per cent of last 
year's freshmen cast their votes, 
while around 70 per cent of the 
sophomores and juniors usually 
complete their ballots. He was hes- 
itant to predict this year's turnout. 
Nilsen Comments 

Retiring CC president, Larry 
Nilsen '58, made this statement to 
the RECORD Sunday night. "In 
view of the criticism this past 
term that the College Council is 
not representative, I would urge 
everyone to vote this Thursday. 
Only by having everyone take part 
in the voting can we have a rep- 
resentative College Council." 

Nilsen also stressed that College 
Council members should not be 
selected on a popularity basis. He 
urged everyone to give serious con- 
sideration to all the candidates. 

Results of the election are ex- 
pected to be available by late 
Thursday night. 

Few Petitions 

As of Sunday night, the num- 
ber of circulating nominating pe- 
titions was below that of recent 
years. The number was expected to 
increase considerably by Thm-s- 
day, however. 

Burns Considers 
Seeking Election 

Professor James M. Burns, 
chairman of the Political Science 
Department, will run for Congress 
next fall, according to a Boston 

Professor Burns said that al- 
though he has not finally decided, 
he is "considering" seeking elec- 

Democrat Burns is reported to 
have strong backing from Mas- 
sachusetts Democratic leader's. A- 
mong his past political activity art 
stints as a delegate to the National 
Democratic Conventions in 1952 
and 1956. 

The First Congressional District, 
where Burns will enter the race, 
has not had a Democratic Con- 
gressman for 66 years. If he runs. 
Burns will oppose Republican 
John W. Heselton who has held 
a seat in Congress since 1944 and 
is expected to run for another 

Professor Burns is presently giv- 
ing a series of lectures concerning 
"Russia and the American Fu- 
ture", based on his trip to the 
USSR last year. 

Alumni To Attend 
Winter Reunion 

Midwinter Homecoming, the an- 
nual reunion of Williams alumni, 
will be held this coming weekend. 
Charles B. Hall, Alumni Secretary, 
is directing the activities. 

The agenda includes a discussion 
entitled "American Destiny: Sec- 
ond Rate Power?". The panel will 
be moderated by Alfred E. Dris- 
coU '25. former governor of New 
Jersey, and consists of Vincent 
M. Barnett, Emile Despres, Char- 
les R. Keller, and David A. Park. 

A small Jazz concert, a faculty 
party, fraternity dinners and 
meetings, an alumni-parent and 
son lunch, and the dedication of 
the Charles Caldwell Memorial 
and Ken Reynold's portrait will 
complete the official program. 

Although attendance at the 
Winter Homecoming has seen a 
steady decline during past years, 
Mr. Hall hopes that the 1958 cal- 
endar of events will make this 
weekend a well attended one.

Vol. LXXH February 12, 1958 Number 3 


The outgoing College Council leaves behind 
a record of accoinplisluneiit— rare for student 
goveniment at Williams. 

Under its direction thorough and valuable 
investigations iiave been made of discrimina- 
tion ill fraternities and of tlie financing of extra- 
curricular activities. A ]ilaii was tested for tlie 
typing of final e.xanis and a coininittee was set 
up to study the lirolilein ol compulsory chapel. 
Two Fiascos 

Tliis CC will be remembered, however, for 
two fiascos. 

During the fall term it called a compulsory 
all-college meeting and installed FM radio sets 
in every fraternity dining room for the broad- 
casting of announcements at noon. 

The |5ur|50se of these two moves was "the 
improvement of college communications" which 
Gargoyle had called necessary. Without investi- 
gating the problem of communications at Wil- 
liams the Council j^assed the Gargoyle recom- 
mendations too hastily. 

The all-college meeting, disrupted by a 
bomb scare, made the CC look ridiculous. And 
the FM radios, ]3aid for by an all-student tax, 
fell quickly into disuse. 

These moves were not made because CC 
members were acutely concerned with communi- 
cations. They saw a chance to bring their or- 
ganization before the ]3ublic at a Chaj^in Hall 
meeting and at every lunch table. 
Not Power Hungni 

They were not "power hungry". They had 
read the first articles of their constitution— the 
vague and high-sounding statement of their aims. 

The purpose of the CC, say the articles, is 
"to ]3romote the ideals of the college." It will be 
a "controlling and directing force." It will develop 
among students a "sense of i^ersonal res]jonsibili- 
ty for their own conduct." 

When they acted on the Gargoyle commun- 
ications proposals, the Council members were 
sincerely trying to fulfill the spirit of tliese ideal- 
istic aims. They wanted to evoke respect and in- 
terest among the students for student govern- 

But they acted too self-consciously. Tlie com- 
plications of the communications problem were 

hidden from them, because they were not look- 
ing in that direction. They were looking instead 
at the problem of their own postion on campus. 

As a result theh "solution" of the communi- 
cations problem was wholly inadequate. Instead 
of enliancing their prestige when the FM re- 
ceivers were moved out of the dining rooms and 
when the policeman announced to a laughing 
crowd that he had received a rejiort of a bomb 
planted in Cliapin Hall, Uiey lowered it consid- 

Superb Work 

When the Council has acted witliout tliis 
self-rnnsciousness, it has clone superb work. 

Dave Phillips' report on discrimination was 
called a "masterpiece of sociological research." 
It has led to trustee action aimecl at erasing the 
problem of racial and religious discrimination 
from the Williams social system. 

The report on extra-curricular finances, al- 
though not under direct CC administration, was 
discussed at length by Council members. Pro- 
l^osals from the rejjort were adopted and effected 
by the Council. The result will be less financial 
irresponsibility in college organizations. 

A/o Interest? 

These reports represent the kind of valuable 
work the Council can do. It is true diat students 
interested enough in studtMit government to do 
the amount of work such a report requires are 
rare. Too often Council rej^orts are like the re- 
cent investigation of houseparties: sloppy, su- 
perficial, and of little value. 

Yet interest cannot be generated by clumsy, 
self-conscious efforts to make tire Council more 

We ho|5e that the Council to be elected 
1 lunsdav will see this. If they can produce more 
|)eiietiatiiig studies of |5roblems at Williams, they 
will gain more genuine respect and interest from 
the students. If they worry too much about their 
own |)osition on campus, tliey will take steps 
which will lead to ridicule. 

Not "Controlling Force" 

The place of student government at Wil- 
liams can not be that of a "contiolling force." 
Very few students at Williams wish to feel the 
CC developing a "sense of personal responsibil- 
ity" in their everyday lives. 

The Council will never be "representative." 
At election time ballots are cast for responsible, 
public spirited, conservative men. Tlie students 
do not ask to be reiMesented by the members 
they elect. They ask merely not to be inished 
into going to a meeting or payhig for an unused 
radio so that the Council can increase its prestige. 

The CC can do more for the students by 
thorough investigations of student problems. The 
Council will not become a second Gargoyle. Tlie 
fact that it is poinilarly elected, that its meetings 
are oiien, and that it is empowered to set up or- 
ganization to put its proposals into effect, make 
this impossible. 

We hope that the incoming CC will accom- 
plish more if it concentrates on what it is doing 
and forgets about its own prestige.

Les Elgart, Entertaining Personality 

Bi/ John Pliillips 
Managing Editor 

Success ill the entertainment world is typified by Les Elgarts' 
rise to fame. His "dancing sound" has rocketed him to prominence, 
but his unassuming manner inherited from humble origins has re- 
mained intact. 

Stranded in Williamstown when his car slid into a snowdrift 
near Petersburg, New York, Friday evening, Elgart spent the 
night in one of the fraternity houses on cam|ius, providing as 
thoroughly enjoyable eiitertaimiient with his personality as he had 
earlier accomplished with his musical artistry. 

Faced with a breakfast menu of sausagi- and eggs Saturday 
inoriiing, Elgart refused the eggs. He explained by relating the 
story or his childhood jiet chicken "Peggv ' whose untimely demise 
in the interests of a Sunday dinner had made him unable to sto- 
mach either chicken or eggs evei- since. 

"bubonic trail" 

Elgart said that despite King Winter's efforts at derision his 
reception at Williams was extremely gratifying. Asked about the 
satisfaction he received from iiis business, he said that his greatest 
enjoyment stemmed from jilaying for college dances because 
"young people are more apiireciative of the sounds we try to 
create. ' 

After playing for three months in the Cafe Rouge at New 
York's Statler Hotel, Elgart said he was iiajiiiy to be on the road 
again, although the wintry difficulties of liis lirst road appearance 
in Williamstown (due to the treacherous obstacles of the "bubonic 
trail"), had caused a certain loss of exuberance. 

With the aid of a few Williams' students, Elgart and two of 
his musical cohorts wheeled their car out of its drifted berth Sat- 
urday morning and set out for anoUier dance appearance at Syra- 
cuse that night. Their six-car caravan moved slowly back to Man- 
hattan Sunday, planning one more New England stop before an 
extensive soutliern tour beginning this week in Augusta, Georgia. 

Arriving at his car Saturday morning, Elgart cracked through 
its icy casing and openetl the door. Sticking his head inside, he 
joked characteristically: "You see, honey, 1 told you we'd be back".

Jeffs Consider 
New Honor Code 

After several unsuccessful at- 
tempts the Amherst student body 
is making rapid strides towards 
establishing an honor system. 

The honor code, a 67 year-old 
tradition at Williams, will be sub- 
mitted for approval to the class of 
1962 during freshman orientation 
next fall. If next year's freshman 
class adopts the system, it will 
be subject to essentially the same 
code of honor which exists for the 
Williams student. 

Subsequent Classes to Approve 

The system will then be submit- 
ted to subsequent classes, and, if 
adopted by all, Amherst will be 
totally under the honor system in 
four years. The present freshman, 
sophomore and junior classes may 
also adopt the code if they wish. 

Two systems are currently under 
study. Under the first, any stu- 
dent observing academic dishon- 
esty would warn the offending 
student and after observing a sec- 
ond offense, would either ask the 
offender to turn himself in or re- 
port him to the honor board. 

Under the provisions of the sec- 
ond system, the preliminary warn- 
ing would be eliminated. 

Tlie Amherst honor code will 
refer only to academic matters as 
does the Williams system.

year they haven't given the "un- 
der new management" sign a sec- 
ond glance. 

But the sign, though not en- 
hancing the restaurant's rather 
shabby facade, carries a great sig- 
nificance to any who should no- 
tice and stop in to talk with the 
new management, Harold Raith- 
el. The sign is significant because 
it indicates that not only is the 
manager new, but more important 
he is amiable and personable. Be- 
cause Harold is endowed with 
these two traits essential in at- 
tracting the undergraduate trade 
iD is a sure bet that the College 
Restaurant will rise out of the 
abyss to which it sank last year. 

Though Harold is the manager, 
the College Restaurant is in reali- 
ty a family business. Harold's 
parents were forced to evacuate 
an enterprising restaurant busi- 
ness in North Adams to make way 
for a State highway. They were 
given the opportunity to buy the 
College Re.staurant business short- 
ly thereafter. 

Since the restaurant is too large 
for two elderly people to manage 
alone, they invited Harold to buy 
in with them. Though he was liv- 
ing comfortably in Boston working 
in the Sunbeam appliance service 
center and attending night school 
at MIT, Harold willingly com- 

Armed with no business experi- 
ence and with only a little cook- 
ing know-how gained in the mili- 
tary I he served from 1944 to 1953 
in the marines, army and air 
force) but heavily loaded with af- 
fability, Harold began the up-hill 
battle to put the College Restau- 
rant on its feet. 

Harold, in addition to being an 
investor, is an inventor of sorts. 
A Kraft cheese package, a Gen- 
eral Electric reciprocating turbine 
engine, and a projected General 
Motors free piston engine are all 
in some way products of his Im- 
aginative mind. 

Harold's nack for Innovation has 
carried over into his business. A 
new, efficient catering sei'vice has 
strengthened his position consid- 
erably. When business has finally 
picked up to the extent where he 
can make improvements, Harold 
voiced the desire to make his place 
into a first class restaurant. Ma- 
jor changes will be made, includ- 
ing a replacement of the shabby 
facade of which Harold is asham- 

Even today the College Restau- 
rant is not exactly the same place 
it was when Harold took over. In 
addition to the new catering ser- 
vice the interior has been cleaned 
up and repainted in necessary 
places. But most important, of all, 
the place has a new character, a 
new livliness due to Harold's 
willingness to serve the students 
of Williams College.

Middlebury Wins Title; 
Top Ski Award To Smith 

By Toby Smith 

Top performances in the jump- 
ing and cross-country events. 
Sunday, enabled Mlddlebui-y Col- 
lege to overcome Dartmouth's ear- 
ly carnival lead and replace the 
Indians as team champions of the 
Williams meet. The Panthers fin- 
ished the snow-swept competition 
with a total point score of 578.13. 
Runner-up Dartmouth, leading by 
2.65 points Saturday, ended with 

Dartmouth won only two of the 
six events but their captain. Bill 
Smith was chosen skimeister, be- 
ing the outstanding overall per- 
former of the Carnival. Prank 
Hurt of Middlebury would have 
been the winner of the honor had 
he entered the jumping, as he 
placed 3rd, 4th and third in the 
first three events. 

Williams Fifth 
The Williams ski team, led by 
George Fisher, placed fifth be- 
hind Vermont. Only two points 
separated the two teams and the 
difference was, as before, in the 
jumping. Depth enabled Vermont 
to pick up four points in the Nor- 
dic Combined event even though 
the teams were fairly even up to 
that point. 

Less than one point separated 
the Ephmen from Vermont in all 
fojr main events, but since each 
team puts in skiers specifically 
for scoring in the Alpine and Nor- 
dic Combined totals, Williams 
found the weaker position. 
Vaughn Sets Record 
In the Downhill event, the first 
ten finishers broke Chic Igaya's 
1957 Thunderbolt Trail record. Bob 
Gebhardt of Dartmouth was first 
with 1:11.0 followed closely by 
Gary Vaughn of Norwich with 
1:11.8. Fisher of Williams was al- 
so under the old record of 1:14.6 
with 1:14.4. Co-captain Becket 
tied the record in tenth place.

Williams Takes 5th; 
Downhill Improved 

On the basis of their perform- 
ance in the Dartmouth Winter 
Carnival, Williams remained about 
the same in Eastern team stand- 
ings. At Hanover the Ephmen 
placed fourth behind the host 
team, St. Lawrence and Norwich 
in that order. 

At the close of the two day meet 
in WUliamstown, the Ephmen a- 
gain found Dartmouth and St. 
Lawrence in front of them but al- 
so Middlebury and Vermont. Nor- 
wich dropped to a surprising 
eighth place in the standings 
while Vermont moved up from a 
sixth in the Dartmouth Carnival. 

The Williams total point score 
of 510.30 is down from their pre- 
vious total of 513.40 at Dart- 
mouth. The Indians also are down 
from a 584.6 at their own carnival 
to a 566.16 score at Williams.

Skiers Travel To 
Middlebury Event 

After recovering from the more 
than adequate snow conditions in 
WUliamstown this weekend, the 
Williams ski team will embark on 
their third consecutive Winter 
Carnival excursion. This time the 
scene will be the co-ed paradise 
of Middlebury, Vermont. 

The same approximate ski ag- 
gregation will be present for the 
three day series of events as par- 
ticipated in the Williams compe- 
tition. Particular importance is at- 
tached to this meeting since a 
finish among the top five team.s 
would secure Williams an invita- 
tion to the National intercolle- 
giate championships to be held at 
Dartmouth this year.

Eph Quintet Wins One, Loses One; 
Morton Paces Attack With 11 And 11 

Jeff Morton poured in twenty- 
two points Saturday afternoon, 
before a partisan houseparty 
crowd, to lead the fast-breaking 
Ephmen to a 74-48 victory over a 
poorly-conditioned W. P. I. team. 

Bob Parker stood out defensive- 
ly for the Purple, holding W. P. I.'s 
leading scorer, Dipipio, to two bas- 
kets. Bill Hedeman and Jeff Mor- 
ton also excelled on defense, lead- 
ing both .squads in rebounding. 

The salient feature of the con- 
test was the Williams' fast break, 
which was led very successfully by 
Pete Willmott and J. B. Morris. 

Lose to Siena 

In Thursday's game a strong 
Siena five hit exceptionally well 
against the Williams' zone de- 
fense. But it was not until the 
final ten minutes that Siena ran 
away with a 71-50 victory. The 
Ephmen fell hopeles.sly behind 
when Siena broke through their 
all-couit press. 

Again leading the attack was 
Jeff Morton with seventeen points. 
Morton was the only man in dou- 
ble figures for tlie Ephs, Siena, 
however, had three men with over 
ten points. 

In a pre-llm contest the Eph 
yearlings were paced by Bob 
Montgomery's twenty-two points. 
They beat the visiting Siena 
freshmen soundly by the score of 

Toby Schreiber and Lou Guzzetti 
chipped in with eighteen and ten 
points respectively. 

Middies Take Squash 

After the mid-semester break, 
the Williams squash team lost a 
tough 5-4 match on Saturday to 
Navy at Cambridge. The Ephs now 
have a record of 3-2, having pre- 
viously defeated Trinity, Army, 
and M. I. T. while losing to Har- 
vard and Navy. 

Williams' top man, OUie Staf- 
ford, currently number two in the 
country, lost 18-17, 18-16, 15-7 to 
Navy's Griffiths. The toughest 
match of all for the team to lose 
was the number two singles. Here 
Greg Tobin lost a 5-set match to 
Lowry by one point. Although this 
match was not considered to be 
decisive, the 10-15, 15-12, 15-11, 
5-15, 16-15 Navy win turned out 
to be the crucial one.

Amherst Takes 2-1 
Decision From Sextet 

A large Carnival crowd saw the 
varsity hockey team drop a 2-1 
decision to Amherst on the Wil- 
liams rink Saturday afternoon. 
Play was hampered by the heavy 
snowfall but Williams manged to 
dominate the rough game, keep- 
ing the puck in the Amherst zone 
most of the time. 

Amherst opened the scoring at 
19:28 of the first period when 
sophomore center Bruce Hutchin- 
son beat Denny Doyle with a shot 
angled into the upper right hand 
corner from twenty feet out. 

Williams bounced back on Tom 
Piper's slaiJshot at 7:59 of the sec- 
ond period. Amherst scored the 
winning goal at 14:25 of the same 
period, when David Shactman 
fired past Doyle. 

Throughout the game Williams 
had numerous scoring chances 
which were constantly thwarted 
by the great play of Bob Brown in 
the Amherst nets. 

With about a minute to play, 
Eph Coach Bill McCormick pulled 
Doyle from the cage and skated 
six forwards, but to no avail, as 
the jubilant Jeffs skated off with 
the victoi-y. 

The Jeffs will meet Williams a- 
gain on Amherst's Orr Rink March 


February 12, Williams will face 
Harvard, one of the East's strong- 
est teams at Watson Rink In Cam- 
bridge. Harvard scored 4 goals in 
the last period to beat the Ephs 
7-2 last year in Williamstown. 
The Purple's job will be to contain 
Harvard's high-scoring captain, 
Bob Cleary.

The Williams mile relay team 
was unable to finish its heat in 
the Melrose Games, held in New 
York's Madison Square Garden 
last Saturday, when ace anchor 
man Bill Pox pulled a muscle at 
the start of his quarter. At the 
time, Williams was in third place, 
following George Sudduth's 49.3 
quarter. John Schimmel led off, 
and Tony Harwood ran the sec- 
ond leg.

Winning seven out of eight 
matches, the varsity wrestling 
team scored an impressive 27-3 
win over the Coast Guard Acade- 
my Pi'iday. 

Captain Jim Hutchinson, Wally 
Matt and Stu Smith were out- 
standing for William.s. In perhaps 
ihu best wrestled match of the 
meet, Hutchinson overcame the 
Coast Guard captain. Bob Im- 
brie, in the 147 pound class. Hut- 
chinson scored two points in the 
second period and added one more 
in a final time advantage. 

Matt pinned Ted Leigh in the 
l2:i pound class with a half-nel- 
.'ion in the second period. 130 
liound Stu Smith also triumphed 
with a pin by a half-nelson, his 
pin coming in the first period. 

In the 137 pound class Kuhrt 
Wienecke outfought George Mit- 
chell while Steve Lewis won his 
157 pound match when his oppo- 
nent defaulted. Pete Carney at 
167 was outpointed by a superbly 
conditioned Fritz MaLser. Racking 
up eleven points in the first two 
periods, Dave Moore went on to a 
romping 12-3 victory in his 177 lb. 
match. Denny Fuller outpointed 
his opponent in the unlimited class 

Coach Jim Ostendarp's grap- 
plers now have a 2-1 record, hav- 
ing defeated Tufts and lost to 
Springfield. The one sided vic- 
tory over Coast Guard ranks Wil- 
liams among the top four small 
college wrestling teams.

Frosh Swimmers Risk 
Record Against Green 

This afternoon's freshman swim- 
ming contest in Lasell Pool a- 
gainst powerful Deerfield will 
mark the high point In the team's 
so-far undefeated season. 

This year's squad, termed one of 
the smallest but best frosh aggre- 
gations Coach Bob Mulr has ever 
had at Williams, will have a tough 
battle to keep its record Intact as 
it faces a team which no Eph 
frosh squad has defeated since 

Three captains, all on prep or 
high school All-America listings, 
lead the team. Buck Robinson, 
who holds the college record in 
the 200 breaststroke; Terry Allen, 
who is edging very close to the 
freshman 200 yard freestyle rec- 
ord; and Nell Devaney, who holds 
the freshman 100 butterfly record 
will attempt to exhibit enough 
power to help keep Williams in the 
running today. 

Diver Bob Reeves, much improv- 
ed over earlier performances, will 
try to upset Deerfield's men In his 
event. Sprinters Mike Dlvely and 
Sam Roberson will probably be 
aiming at the Green's crack swim- 

Jim Urbach and Tom Williams 
will have formidable opposition in 
the 100 yard backstroke, while the 
individual medley — not a regular 
frosh event — Is not yet assigned. 

The meet will undoubtedly 
hinge on the final relays where 
both teams excel. 

Three teams have fallen to the 
frosh so far— R. P. I. Frosh, Al- 
bany Academy, and Hotchklss — 
and the two remaining meets a- 
galnst Wesleyan and Amherst 
seem certain wins in the quest for 
another Little Three crown.

John Lawlor, B.S. in E.E., Brown, '52, answers some questions about 

An engineering career witli the Bell Telephone Companies 

John Lawlor is a Transmission Engineer with New 
England Telephone an<l Telegraph Company in 
Boston. His answers reflect his experiences during 
five years in the telephone Inisinesa. 


How did you begin as an engineer 
in the Bell Telephone Companies? 

My first fifteen months were spent in "on-the- 
job" training— changing assignments every three 
months or so. Tliese assignments gave me a 
broad, over-all background in telephone engi- 
neering. And they were accompanied by plenty 
of responsibility. They progressed in importance 
with my ability to handle them. 

What is the attitude of older engineers 
and supervisors toward young men? 

I've found a strong team spirit in the telephone 
company. You're encouraged to contribute your 
ideas, and they're received with an o|)en mind. 
Young men and new ideas are regarded as vital 
to the continuing growth of the company. 

M How about opportunities for advancement? 

I'd say ihcy dejicnd on the man. Opportunities 
to demonstrate your ability come with each new 





job you're given. The size and importance of 
your assigimients grow with your ability to handle 
them. All promotions are made from within, and 
the growth of the business is creating new open- 
ings all the time. One more thing. Most tele- 
phone engineering locations are convenient to 
colleges. You can aid your advancement by keep- 
ing on with your studies. 

How does the telephone company 
stack up where pay is concerned? 

Starting salaries are competitive with those of- 
fered by most large companies. Raises arc based 
on merit, with several increases during your first 
two years with the company. What's more, your 
performance is reviewed regularly to make sure 
that your pay keeps up with your progress. All 
things considered, I think a Bell Telephone career 
is second to none in rewards and opportunities. 

Find out about career opportunities for you 
in the Bell Telephone Companies. Talk with 
the Bell interviewer when he visits your cam- 
pus. And read the Bell Telephone booklet 
on file in your Placement Office, or write for

Ex-Governor Driscoll 
Heads Williams Panel 

Alfred E. Driscoll, moderator of a faculty panel which dis- 
cussed the role of the U. S. as a world power this morning 
as a feature of Midwinter .Munini Ilomeconiing, is a noted law- 
yer, jjoliticiaM, and business executive. 

At 44, lie was elected governor of New Jersey, a post which 
he held until 1954. In his administration, Driscoll was noted for 

scrupulous honesty and the abili- l 

ty to lead his programs through 
the legislature. He was instrumen- 
tal in building the New Jersey 
Turnpike giving his state the lar- 
gest ratio of multi-lane highway 
systems in the country. Under his 
leadership, the state constitution 
was extensively revised and im- 

He is well-known as a propo- 
nent of balanced budgets and 
states' rights. He attacked the late 
Senator McCarthy (R-Wis.) vig- 
orously. As an example of his lead- 
ership, he exercised veto pov/er 54 
times during his first years in of- 
fice, none of which were reversed 
by the .state legislature. 

Driscoll has received 18 honor- 
ary degrees (notably: Princeton 
LL.D 1947; Williams LL.D. 1948) 
in addition to his A.B. here and 
LL.B. at Harvard Law (1928). He 
was chosen Williams Alumnus of 
the Year at Midwinter Homecom- 
ing 1950 and awarded the Roger- 
son Cup for "outstanding merit in 
service and loyalty to the College 
and for distinction in the field of 
endeavor." He was appointed a- 
lumni trustee 1950-55 and became 
a permanent trustee a year ago. 

At the present time, Driscoll is 
president and director of Warner- 
Lambert Pharmaceutical Co. of 
Morris Plains, New Jersey. In 1955, 
he became president of Warner- 
Hudnut Pharmaceutical Co. of 
New York which later merged with 
the Lambert Co. 

Between 1929 and 1947, he was 
a member and eventually a part- 
ner in the Camden law firm of 

New officers were selected this

Discrimination Dispute 
Hits Princeton Campus 

The Princeton Campus is currently in the midst of an anti- 
discrimination dispute. For the first time in nine years, 23 Prince- 
ton students refused to accept bids to a Princeton eating club. 

The seventeen eating clubs at Princeton, not nationally affili- 
ated, serve the same functions as a fraternity on this campus. At 
the end of Bicker week which corresponds to the Williams Rush 
week, 43 students had not receiv- i 

ed bids to clubs. In addition, fif- 
teen Jewish students signed a 
statement saying: "I feel I have 
been discriminated against be- 
cause of race or religion." 

Club officials then divided these 
remainmg sophomores among 
themselves. Of the original 43, all 
but 23 undergraduates accepted 
these later bids. 

"Nothing We Can Do" 

Prospect, one of tlie clubs, ex- 
tended bids to the remaining 23; 
thpy refutied, howver, to aonept 
and thereby denounced Prospect 
as a "catch all" club. Eleven or 
twelve of these students were be- 
lieved to be Jewish. 

The inter-club organization is- 
sued a statement which said that, 
although it did not agree with ra- 
cial or religious discrimination, 
there was nothing it could do to 
force the clubs to accept members. 
The committee's statement rec- 
ognized the individual clubs' right 
to be selective in choosing its 
membership and "selectivity im- 
plies the right to impose a reli- 
gious quota" if the club so desires. 

Last year, Princeton attempted 
to head off this situation by es- 
tablishing an unnamed "facility" 
for those unaccepted by or un- 
willing to join a club. This was met 
with violent student disapproval. 

Collegiate Twins 
Trade Identities 

A new twist was added to the 
old story of identical twins switch- 
ing places last week when Wil- 
liams sophomore Stu Levy ex- 
changed college residence with his 
brother Jay at Wesley an. 

The twins apparently disagreed 
on which of the Little Three col- 
leges was the most friendly, so 
they decided to switch schools for 
a week and draw their own con- 

With approval of the respective 
college deans, Stu departed for 
Middletown In the aftermath of 
Winter Carnival, while Jay re- 
mained in WiUiamstown. Both as- 
sumed the full academic and ex- 
tra-curricular responsibilities of 
the other, and few, if any students 
were aware of the switch. 

The novel operation ended today 
with each brother returning to his 
home campus. The results of their 
experiment? Ask Stu (or Is It 

'58 Elects Final 
Officers Tuesday 

The permanent officers of the 
Senior Class will be elected at a 
special meeting Tuesday night in 
Jesup Hall. 

Six officers will be elected at 
that time; President, Secretary, 
Agent, Speaker, and two Mar- 
shalls. Separate elections will be 
held for each post, nominations 
being made from the floor. 

These permanent officers will 
be in charge of all the class busi- 
ness, such as the Alumni P\ind 
Drive and the class reunion. The 
Speaker will talk at commence- 
ment and the Marshalls will lead 
the class in at Commencement. 

This is the first time that elec- 
tion of permanent class officers 
has been scheduled at this time 
of year. They were formerly held 
at the end of the year with a "pro 
tem" group of officers presiding 
from semesters until the end of 
the year. This new election sys- 
tem is the result of an amendment 
to the Constitution of the College 
Council which was passed by a 
refei'cndum this fall. 

The turnout in the Baxter Hall 
balloting was not exceptional. 
Juniors, as usual, had the least 
enthusiasm for the election, turn- 
ing out a vote of only 54 per cent. 
The freshmen scored high with 97 
per cent. 


Grey was .secretary of the out- 
going CC and vice-president of his 
class in 1957. A junior adviser, he 
is active in the College Chapel, 
the Lecture Committee and a 
member of the board of WMS. He 
has made Dean's List grades 
throughout his college career and 
is taking honors in political sci- 
ence. From New York, he is af- 
filiated with Delta Phi. 

Campbell was treasurer of the 
CC and president of his class last 
year. He played freshman football 
and is active in WMS. A Chi Psi, 
Campbell comes from Illinois. 

Montgomery, from Lansford, 
Pa., plays basketball and was pre- 
sident of the entry representa-

Representatives chosen from the 
Junior Class were Mack Hassler,

The voting was preferential. 
Nominations were made by peti- 
tions, which were circulated last 

A new electoral system which 
would have featured nominating 
conventions and majority voting, 
drawn up by Juniors Jack Betz

tourney produced six winning 
teams. For north-south, it was 

Paul Lazarus and Dave Spence

Govorite po-russki? 

Russian will be jriveii here next year. 

The knowledge ol another |)eo|)le's lanf^uage 
is tlie most eiieetive key to an understanding of 
their culture. Their eoimtrys attitudes can be 
investigated directly. And the knowledge of how 
they put words together is one of the surest ways 
to learn the workings of their minds. 

For Americans at Williams in the Sputnik 
Age, therefore, the ojjportunity to learn Russian 
is an excithig one. 

But will we take advantage of it? 

We doubt it. 

In an article in the last issue of Tlie Nation 
Freshman Dean William Cole calls our genera- 
tion "pastel-colored" and "tepid." Today's stu- 
dent "has no heroes, embraces no causes, jjro- 
fesses no creeds, disjjlays no great |)assion." He 
has "little sense of vocation" and cannot project 
any "consistent adult image" of himself "in vo- 
cational terms." 

And Cole is not the only one to bring tliis 
indictment agauist us. 

Won't this Williams man with "little sense 
of vocation" see a Russian course as a mere nov- 
elty? When it turns out not to be a "gut," won't 
he lose interest? 


This is a critical failure. Concurrent with 
Cole's article last week, a plea for a return to 
diplomacy when the ])ossibility of nuclear an- 
nihilation stands darkly before us was made by 
Professor Frederick Schmnan in pages of the 
New Republic. The only alternative to disaster 
he said is "a resumjition of negotiations to halt 
the arms race and end the cold war." 

How can we negotiate with a people we do 
not know? And how can we know them if we do 
not speak their language? 

We hope we are not being idealistic in urg- 
ing interest in Russian 1-2. 

The need for interest could not be more real. 


By Bill Edgar 

Too much contrast marks the faculty pro- 
duction which ends a three-day run at the AMT 
this evening. 

The three-hour pot-pourri includes hght Sha- 
vian comedy, highly esoteric Stravinsky, and 
clever but blatant topical satire. 

Like beer and fine whiskey, the separate 
parts are enjoyable. But they do not mix. 

The faculty's orif'-nal "The Way the Cookie 
Crumbles" spoofs aliunni, Rejiublicans, tranquil- 
izers, students and the U. S. missile program. 

Director William Martin has given a whirl- 
wind, staccato pace to the satire, which is de- 

It becomes slightly bitter, however, in 
"Nightmare Alley" when philologist Nemo (Don 
Gifford ) is harassed by the McCarthyite mental- 
ity. The script-writers felt strongly about this. 
It adds a bitter taste to what is otherwise very 
good fun. 

The play cannot fail to appeal to a student- 
alumni audience— although it suffers from loose 
construction and a very weak ending. The wit is 
sharp, imaginative, and it drives home. 

Highlights include Gifford's performance 
throughout; Anne Waite as Nemo's suffering and 
nagging wife; Bob Waite as a two-faced foot- 
ball coacli; the madrigal quartet which provides 
an image of faculty dancing on the greens; and 
the takeoffs on commercials. 

The presentation of Stravinsky's "L'Histoire 
du Soldat" is elaborate and exciting, a real Wag- 
nerian synthesis of three arts. 

Lee Hirsche's imaginative set is the most in- 
teresting on the AMT stage. 

Tom Griswold draws a creditable perform- 
ance of the difficult score from a group of hard- 
working amateur musicians. 

David Boulton is outstanding in the part of 
the Devil, Bill Cole effective but sometimes too 
senatorian as the narrator. 

In the Interlude from Shaw's Apple Cart, 
AMT Director Giles Playfair displays his extra- 
ordinarv acting talent as King Magnus. Rassi 
Gifford s Orinthia is at times enchanting, at times 
too forced. 


To the Recohd: 

We tliank Mr. Coffin for the first two para- 
gra(Dhs of his recent letter to the Editor, with the 
remainder we must disagree. We do not feel that 
these three men considered "business a game" 
nor that they refused to mention the "eons" and 
tlie dilemmas. 

On the topic of conformity versus individual- 
ism doesn't Mr. Smith's statement, "A reasoned 
conformity is useful and often necessary as a 
means of advancement and sometimes even of 
survival, but as an end in itself, it is spiritual 
and intellectual dissolution", have both meaning 
and indicate a dilemma? 

This same speaker suggested that each man 
concern himself "not just with the 'hows' but 
also with the 'whats' and tlie 'whys' " of his job. 
He also stated that "home work— some neglect 
of the sports pages—" is necessary to "find your- 
self becoming distinguishable from the group 
and conscious of your individualism". Are not 
these "live issues"? 

Might we say that various aspects of con- 
formity were discussed by these speakers? Was 
not Mr. Stockton touching upon another facet 
of conformity in citing "teamwork"— or "an abili- 
ty to work with people"— as one of the primary 
characteristics sought in a prosjiective employee? 
He said that the absence of this trait "accounts 
for more failures as managers tlian any other 
thing" and that "without this capacity to team 
a man is lost". Is this negative conformity? 

.Mr. Alter suggested a constant re-evaluation 
of one's own position in the business world. He 
never advocated that every man be an "Organi- 
zation Man". Wasn't Mr. Auer being construc- 
tive when he said that any man unhap|3y in the 
cor]3orate structure "turn" (note: not "retreat") 
his talents to teaching or the ministry or some 
other profession"? Is this thought avoiding any 
possible discussion of chlemma or demanding 
the endurance of a conflict which necessitates a 
"surrender of tlie soul" for the sake of conformity? 

To return to Mr. Stockton's remarks, the Cof- 
fin thesis of no mention of dilemmas is not valid. 
This sjieaker clearly suggests that in business we 
"will not have ideal bosses" as "there just aren't 
enough good ones to fill all positions." He dis- 
cusses the "cons" of job rotation and its effect 
on the family and social adjustment. And he cites 
the importance of the liberal arts man's under- 
standing "of the problems and results of science 
and technology and the facts of the nation's in- 
dustiial growth." 

Real Dilemmas? Yes. Cliches? No. 

In conclusion, we believe that the participat- 
ing alumni did state frankly, although the point 
was not luiderscored, that the matter of confor- 
mity versus individualism is a |50ssible jiroblem 
in the business world; that they believed a cer- 
tain amount of conformity is necessary to ac- 
complish the company's objectives— that if this 
fact creates a conflict in the individual, it might 
then be necessary for him to turn elsewhere voca- 
tionally. Tlie problem was stated and a solution 
was given.

To the Record: 

The ski team wishes to congratulate and 
thank all those who worked so hard to make 
the skiing part of carnival such a success. From 
the standpoint of the competitors, the courses 
were in excellent condition, especially consider- 
ing the most adverse weather conditions pos- 
sible. All the competitors certainly appreciated 
the spirit of those who carried out the innumer- 
able jobs necessary to the holding of a good car- 
nival. No witness could call those Williams men 

The Williams Ski Team. 

To the Record: 

The Williams Outing Club would like to take 
this opportunity to express its thanks to all the 
anonymous workers who helped make the week- 
f'nd successful. Although not members of the 
woe ni general, they saw the crisis and were 
wilhng to meet it. Special thanks go to the var- 
sity and freshman ski teams without whose aid 
the events could not have been held. In addition, 
the Purple Key deserves credit as do four hardy 
faculty members.

Plus Gina Lollobrigldio in "Four Ways Out" 



(By the Author of "Rally Rcund the Flag, Boysl" and 
"Barefoot Boy with Cheek.") 


Today let us apply the hot white light of sustained thinking to 
the greatest single problem besetting American colleges. I refer, 
of course, to homesickness. 

It is enough to rend the heart, walking along a campus at 
night and listening to entire dormitories solibing themselves to 
ileep. And in the morning when the poor, lorn students rise 
from their tear-stained pallets and refuse their breakfasts and 
shamble off to class, their lips trembling, their eyelids gritty, 
it is enough to turn the bones to aspic. 

What can be done to overcome homesickness? Well sir, the 
obvious solution is for the student to put his liome on rollers 
and bring it to college with him. This, however, presents three 
serious problems: 

1) It is likely to play hob with your wine cellar; umiiy wines, 
as we all imow, will not travel. 


2) There is the matter of getting your house through the 
Holland Tunnel, which has a clearance of only 14 feet, 8 inches. 
This, of course, is ample for ranch houses, but quite impossible 
for Cape Cods, Georgians, and Saltboxes, and I, for one, think 
It would be a flagrant injustice to deny higher education to 
students from Cape Cod, Georgia, and Saltbox. 

3) There is the question of public utiliti&s. Your house— 
and, of course, all the other houses in your town— has wires 
leading to the municipal power plant, pipes leading to the nui- 
nieipal water supply and gas main. So you will find when you 
start rolling your house to college that you are, willy-nilly, 
dragging all the other houses in town with you. Thi.s will result 
in gross population shifts and will make the Bureau of the 
Census cross as bears. 

No, I'm afraid that taking your house to college is not feasi- 
ble. The thing to do, then, is to make your campus lodgings as 
dose a replica of your home as possible. 

Adorn your quarters with familiar objects, things that will 
constantly remind you of home. Your brother Sam, for instance. 
Or your citizenship papers. Or a carton of ^h^rll)oros. 

There is nothing like Marlboros, dear friends, to make you 
feel completely at home. They're so easy, so friendly, so wel- 
come, so likable. The filter is great. The flavor is marvelous. The 
Flip-Top Box is wonderful. The tattoo is optional. 

Decorating your diggings with familiar objects is an excellent 
remedy for homesickness, but it is not without its hazards. 
Take, for instance, the case of Tignor Sigafoos and Estahrook 
Baunch who were assigned to share a room last fall in the 
freshman dorm. 

Tignor, an ice-skating addict from Minnesota, brought with 
him 44 barrels over which he had jumped the previous winter 
to win the Minnesota Jumping-Over-Barrcis Championship. 
Estabrook, a history major from Massachusetts, brought 
Plymouth Rock. 

Well sh, there was simply not enough room for 44 barrels and 
Plymouth Rock too. Tignor and Estabrook fell into such a vio- 
lent quarrel that the entire dorm was keot awake for twelve 
days and twelve nights. Finally the Dean of Men was called in 
to adjudicate the dispute. He listened carefully to both sides of 
the argument, then took Tignor and Estabrook and pierced their 
ears and sold them to gypsies. ^ ,„,. ,. 

"•"^ ® 1»68 .\(.i8hu]n,«n

And now all is quiet in the dorm, and everyone aits in 
peace and smokes liia Marlboros, whose maliers bring you 
this column throughout the school year. 

Eph Free Throws Sink Middlebury 


The Williams varsity basketball 
team relied on their foul shooting 
ability to overcome Middlebury 
College, 70-61, In an away game 

The Ephs were out-shot from 
the floor 27-23, however they 
managed to sink 24 foul shots to 
7 for Middlebury. Jeff Morton and 
sophomore J. B. Morris were out- 
standing for the victors collecting 
25 and 20 points respectively. Mor- 
ris also contributed 16 rebounds. 
Tight First Half 

The first half of the game was 
very even with the Ephs holding 
a two point lead at the quarter, 
and at half time only one point 
separated the teams with the Ephs 
leading 31-30. The third period 
saw Morris and Morton control- 
ling the boards and scoring fre- 
quently as the Purple racked up 
20 points to gain a 51-40 lead 
which they maintained through 
the final period. 

Frosh Mermen Lose 

Depth made the difference Wed- 
nesday at the Lasell pool as a fine 
Deerfield team vanquished the 
Williams Freshmen 52-34. 

Both teams battled neck and 
neck until Deerfield swept the fi- 
nal two relays and the meet. Pi-osh 
co-captaln Buck Robinson won the 
100 yard orthodox breaststroke e- 
vent in the scintillating time of 
1:10.0, breaking the freshman, 
college, and pool record. 

Robinson also beat out team- 
mate and co-captain Neil Devaney, 
winning the 100 yard butterfly 
event in 1:00.8. Terry Allen, Mike 
Dively, Jim Urbach and Bob 
Reeves also were outstanding. 

Squash Faces Yalies 

The Varsity Squash team meets 
one of its most formidable foes to 
date this Friday. Yale is visiting 
Williamstown, and the Ephs will 
try to keep their record above the 
.500 mark. Currently the squad is 
riding on a 3-2 record, losing only 
to Harvard and Navy. 

The Yalies bring a tough group 
to town including Captain Harvey 
Sloane, Sonny Howe, and Charles 
Kingsley. But Williams counters 
with Tobin, Stafford, and South- 

all, the first three men respec- 
tively. Surprisingly Greg Tobin 
beat Stafford for the number one 

Yale Is probably the second 
strongest squad the team has had 
to face this year. Only Harvard is 
considered better. Coach Chaffee 
expects an interesting match 
from his boys who are tough on 
their home courts. 

The Freshmen also face Yale, 
a strong team as usual. Bruce Bri- 
an and John Leathers head the 
squad which has an 0-2 record. 

Hockey, Wrestling, B-Ball Teams 
Meet Rivals Here This Weekend 


Williams' varsity wrestling team 
will seek its third win of the sea- 
son as it grapples a perennially 
strong Colgate squad in the Lasell 
gym at 2:30 Saturday afternoon. 

Sporting a 2-1 record now, the 
wrestlers are fresh from a 27-3 
drubbing of the Coast Guard Ac- 
ademy last Friday. Undefeated 
captain Jim Hutchinson (147), a- 
long with Wally Matt (123) and 
Stu Smith (130), who pinned their 
opponents in the Coast Guard 
match, will lead the Ephs against 
the Red Raiders-. Also counted on 
are undefeated Kuhrt Wienecke 
(137) and Dave Moore (177) and 
Steve Lewis at 157. Pete Carney, 
Dennis Mitchell, and Denny Pul- 
ler will vie for the 167 pound and 
unlimited classes. 


The freshman grapplers also 
will see action this Saturday. They 
will take a 1-1 record against Kent 
also at the Lasell gym at 2:30. 
Coach Pete DeLisser is counting 
on Skip Chase, Bill Penny, and 
Jack Staples in the 147, 157, and 
167 pound classes. Other starters 
will probably be Hank Riefle (123), 
Prank Gluck (130), Bob Kaplan 
(137), Fred Nowland (177) and 
Art Waltman at unlimited.

To run a General Motors Division with 
its many plants and myriad problems? 

To help plan a finance program involving

employes in 126 plants in 71 cities and 
19 states? 

If you do, you're just the kind of person 
that General Motors' team of inter-

this: Because of its diversification, 
decentralized operation and coordinated 

control, GM gives you all the advantages 
of working with a small firm, together 
with the benefits a large organization

A heavy schedule awaits the 
varsity hockey team this weekend 
as it meets MIT under the lights 
Friday night and Norwich on Sat- 
urday afternoon. Both games will 
be played on home ice before a 
Homecoming Weekend crowd. 

Williams has a season's record 
of 5-8, dropping one to Amherst 
last Saturday by a 2-1 score. 
Starting for the Ephmen in the 
weekend games should be the first 
line of Burgert, Cook, and Lom- 
bard, backed by defensemen Al 
Erb and Rick DriscoU and goalie 
Denny Doyle. 

MIT has not been a very power- 
ful team this season, but Williams 
Coach McCormick warns against 
over-confidence because of the 
comparative records. The Engin- 
eers were beaten by Norwich early 
in the season by a 13-0 score. 

Norwich, on the other hand, will 
go into this game a slight favorite 
over Williams, having already 
handed Amherst a 2-1 defeat. The 
Cadets will rely heavily on goalie 
Bob McLeod and defensemen 
Fred Haynes and Norm Lavigne in 
Saturday's game.

Pete Willmott at guard. Morris, 
the only sophomore in the start- 
ing line-up has really come into 
his own in the last few games. He 
scored 20 in the Middlebury game. 
Sophomore George Boynton and 
Phil Brown will also see plenty 
of action. 

Except for Warren, the Jeffs 
are not particularly strong. Six 
foot, five inch Lee Lindeman will 
definitely be one starting forward.

Blizzard Strikes; 
Area Paralyzed 

Near blizzards have struck Wil- 
liamstown on two consecutive 
weekends, delivering nearly two 
feet of snow within a week. 

In spite of swift action by state 
and local road crews in clearing 
away the snow which muffled 
Carnival weekend, roads remained 
slippery. On top of the 8 to 10 
inches of the Carnival weekend 
snowfall, the Pittsfield weather 
bureau predicted a new fall of 15 
to 20 inches with heavy drifting 
last Sunday. 

Ephmen Stranded 

In Middlebury, Vermont, the 
Williams Purple Knights were 
caught, unable to return for Mon- 
day classes. Williams men, return- 
ing from Smith or Holyoke, re- 
ported three hour ordeals, and at 
least one man was stranded at 
Vassar. Buses had stopped run- 
ning into Williamstown and train 
service was sharply curtailed. 

The Williams swimming team, 
however, successfully battled the 
elements returning from the wilds 
of Maine. 

N. Y. Thruway Closed 

N^w York officials closed New

Streit Proposes 
^'Federal l/nion" 

Clarence Streit, founder of the 
Federal Union, Inc., and editor 
of the magazine "Freedom and 
Union", urged a federal union of 
the Atlantic democracies in a 
sparsely attended Monday night 
lecture In Jesup Hall. 

Streit first discussed the pre- 
sent conflict between the Western 
democracies and the Communist 
world, pointing out that two me- 
thods are available for victory; 
ICBMs and IDEAs. 

World Imagination 

He stated that while we are now 
mainly concerned with the mili- 
tary aspects of the conflict, mili- 
tary aims cannot bring victory. 
"If we want to win," Streit stated, 
"we must do it by an act which 
will capture the imagination of 
all the world". 

This idea has "got to be simple 
and got to be great", Streit ob- 
served, and then pointed to the 
old proverb "In union there is 
strength" as the starting point of 
this master plan. 

NATO Ineffective 

He next observed that the cur- 
rent NATO alliance, while provid- 
ing "a small measure of unity and 
co-operation", can never be com- 
pletely effective because it is bas- 
ed on a diplomatic "yes" which is 
an actual "maybe". 

Since the alliance system can- 
not serve as a means for victory, 
Streit proposed a union of the At- 
lantic democracies into a federal 
system similar to that of the U- 
nited States. 

Inexpensive Union 

This union would be inexpen- 
sive, economically advantageous 
and, a more effective weapon with 
which to fight Communism than 
ICBM's, Streit said. 

He concluded that "Russia has 
already squeezed the last drop of 
utility out of union, while the 
Western democracies have not yet 
begun to tap it." 

Williams College is not the only j 
academic institution in the East 
to run head on into the problem 
of racial or religious discrimina- 
tion with respect to club affilia- 

Within the last week two other 
such institutions, Princeton and 
Wesleyan, have recognized this 
problem as existing on their re- 
spective campuses. In both cases 
steps were taken to abolish the 
effects of discrimination. 

Wesleyan has a fraternity sys- 
tem much like the one at Wil- 
liams. The issue of discrimination 
has been debated sharply for sev- 
eral years, but it was not until 
this year that definite proposals 
have been seriously considered to 
cope with the problem. 

Approves Resolution 

Last week Morton J. Tenzer, 
chairman of the Junior Faculty 
sub committee on discrimination, 
announced that the Junior Fac- 
ulty had "unanimously approved" 
tlie resolution in the Junior Fac- 
ulty Committee Report on Prater- 

5noii; Storm Delays 
Williamstown Voting 

Snow caused the postponement 
of the Williamstown elections, 
planned to take place on Monday, 
Feb. 17. The voting was adjourn- 
ed to Wednesday, Feb. 19. 

As the polls at the Grant School 
opened, the meeting was post- 
poned for 48 hours on a motion by 
Louis Rudnick, chairman of the 
Selectmen. Although most of the 
roads were passable, driveways 
were blocked, and many of the 
roughly 3,200 voters would find 
it difficult to get to the polls. 

Candidates for selectman are 
Louis Rudnick and Henry Nichols. 
Lloyd S. Blair is running for re- 
election as moderator. George M. 
Harper, William B. Atchison, Fil- 
more R. Baker, and Robert R. 
Howard are competing for the two 
positions on the School Commit- 
tee. Prof. Harper is running for 
re-election. Another candidate for 
re-election is Beatrice Moore 
Schryver, library trustee. 

The postponement was the first 
in Williamstown's history. 

nities. The resolution is aimed at 
the elimination of discriminatory 
practices by Wesleyan fraternities. 

In a quote to the Wesleyan Ar- 
gus Mr. Tenzer stated that 'Wes- 
leyan has been subject to an in- 
ordinate degree of pussyfooting 
on the discrimination issue, and 
this issue belongs in the open'. 

Princeton University does not 
have a fraternity system but in- 
stead a number of local eating 
clubs. The problem arose here last 
week when fifteen Jewish students 
signed a statement saying: "I feel

Panel Says U. S. 
Must See Facts 

The annual Alumni panel en- 
titled "American Destiny; A Sec- 
ond Rate Power?" came to the 
conclusion Saturday that the po- 
tential is present, but whether ef- 
fective and realistic steps to avert 
the present crisis will be taken re- 
mains the question. 

Professor Charles Keller, open- 
ing the discussion, concluded that 
government aid was necessary for 
expansion and reorganization of 
our educational system. 

Physics professor David A. Park 
used interesting facts to compare 
the Russian and American scien- 
tific educational programs. He de- 
plored the "one-fiftieth of one per 
cent" of the national budget al- 
located for creative research. 

Russian System 

Park also analyzed the struc- 
ture of the Russian system. He 
noted that in applied research the 
Soviets could produce amazing re- 
sults, but that this meant a sub- 
sequent sacrifice in other scientif- 
ic fields and of badly needed 
teaching talent. The yardstick he 
used in comparing the U. S. and 
Russia in education and research 
was the number of annual Nobel 
Prizes received by each. 

Economics professor, Emile Des- 
pres and Dean Vincent Harnett 
criticized Washington for an un- 
realistic approach both to our for- 
eign policy and the recent domes- 
tic business recession. Barnett ob- 
served that America was Just 
growing out of the post World War 
attitude that it was the only world 

Faculty Obsolete; 
Machines Gaining 

By Eric Davis 

The lengthening shadow of the 
machine age is darkening the sa- 
cred citadel of liberal education. 

First, New York University in- 
troduced a course over television 
in tlie New York area. On the mid- 
term exam, the electronic students 
pulled a B-average. Eighteen nov- 
elists are being discussed over the 
air waves this semester. 

Then, a Schenectady television 
station announced a course to be 
given in basic Russian. 

Now, Prof. Harold W. Bibber of 
Union College in Schenectady is 
fostering a 'pinball machine' edu- 
cation, which features a textbook, 
a testing machine, and 'self-disci- 
pline.' Closed-circuit TV and film- 
ed lectures will also help to broad- 
cast the benefits of knowledge. 

Harvard University, under the 
guidance of Prof. Burrhus Hkni- 
ner, will actually give Natural Sci- 
ences 114 with a machine which 
teaches from a text through con- 
tinual testing and re-testing of 
the student's skill. 

Students will not give up the ad- 
vantages of the personal teacher- 
student relationship without a 
fight. Questions which can be an- 
ticipated are: 'Is tlie machine able 
to instill in us the thirst for know- 
ledge, to impart the full flavor of 
its subject?' 

I The reasons for these changes, 
indicated Professor Gates of tlie 

' Economics Department is to give 
sophomores more choice in a par- 
ticular field of their interest, and 
somewhat more flexibility in their 
study of economics; to concentrate

Purple Key Weekend To Feature 
Athletics, Dance In Student Union 

Wesleyan and Army afford the 
opposition in all sports for the 
coming Purple Key weekend. The 
events will be split between home 
and away contests with the home 
conflicts being basketball, swim- 
ming, and hockey. 

Saturday Dance 

The event which makes this 
weekend different from an ordi- 
nary athletic weekend is the dance 
sponsored by the Purple Key fol- 
lowing the varsity basketball 
game, lasting until 12 o'clock on 
Saturday night. 

It will be held in the freshman 
lounge of Baxter Hall and will 
feature the orchestra of Hugo Bas- 
so from Providence. Free beer will 
be served in the Rathskeller. 

Freshman Hours 

Fieshmen will be allowed hours 
in the dorm following the dance. 

The varsity basketball game a- 
gainst Wesleyan will be the last 
chance for Williams men to see 
their team in action on home 
ground. The following weekend the 
Ephmen round out the season with 
an important game at Amherst. 
Pete Willmott '57, is serving as 
general chainnan for the week- 
end. Ted Oppenheimer is hand- 
ling the publicity for the event.

Ill tlic articli' wliicli iippcai.s in tlii.s issue of

Rc'piil)lic, a Williams junior from li'a(| sup|5orts 
the cause of Arab nationalism. 

'I'bis sup|5ort is tlistiirbin^lv stronjr. 

Tlie unity of tbc .\rabs has c.Nistod for cen- 
turies, he claims. It has rested on cultural, reli- 
f^ious and liiiiruistic unifonnitv. Only now, after 
centuries of "foreij^n intrusion," is this heritage 
receivintr political expression. 

Many real political and economic factors 
which divide the Arab world are ignored in this 
article. TI.e complexity of the problems of Israel, 
American air bases, and loreifrii oil interests is 
unrecognized. And how is the U. .\. H. related to 
the federation of |ordan and Iraq? 

The article is not a dispassionate analysis. 
It is rather a terribly sincere statement of belief, 
the creed of a religion. This is a religion with 
oversim|)lified aims, backed up by tremendous 
emotional force. It has the same intolerance of 
foreign "intrusion" that English Puritans had of 
Papists, that the courts of the Inquisition had of 
heresy. ', 

This extreme nationalist religion cannot be 
forgotten if we aie to act ellecti\elv in the Mid- 
dle East, if we are to understand the imjilications 
of the Bagdhad Pact or the Eisenhower Doetiine. 
if we are to gi\'e well-recei\'ed foreign aid, if we 
are to win the friendshi|i of the "uncommitted' 
nations of the woild. 

Riddle Of Co-existence 

Bti K. Warner Kim 

Editor's Note: Kim. a junior, i.i from Soctil, 
Korea. At Williain.'; he i.s active in the CoUe<!.e 

Professor Frederick L. Schumau, at last 
weekend's conference in Cambridge, presented 
what may well be the most crucial concern of 
modern man, namely "Co-existence or Co-an- 
nihilation?" ()|K'iiiiig the Conference, sponsored 
by the American Friends Service Committee, 
Schuman showed that the general nature of in- 
ternational politics permitted only two |50ssiblc 
alternatives in dealing with modern states: di- 
plomacy or war. 

Following Schumau Dr. Owen Lattimore, 
Professor of Far Eastern History at Johns Ho]> 
kins University, gave his fresh, discerning in- 
sights on the Far Eastern situation today. He 
emphasized the fact that, while the Bolsheviki of 
Russia in 1917 did not have much experience in 
the art of ruling, "Mao & Co." were (|uite old 
hands at their trade. He also speculated that it 
will take less time for Red China to modernize 
herself in terms of industrialization than it did 
for Russia. 

Rupert Emcr.ion 

On the second day of the conference Rupert 
Emerson, Professor of Government at Harvard, 
spoke on Nationalism and the Cold War. Con- 
centrating on the area of /Vsia-African national- 
ism, be stressed the fact that most if not all of 
Africans and Asians think of imperialism only in 
relation to Western capitalism and colonialism, 
and never in relation to Russian communism. Em- 
erson, however, made a cautious warning that 
many "footnotes" are necessary when we talk 
about the Afro-.\sian World, that is, diversity i.s 
crucial to anv adequate understanding of the 
problem. The so-called Afro-Asian World cannot 
be treated as one political entity. 

During the panel discussions Schuman again 
emphasized the fact that we cannot overlook the 
schizophrenic nature of Russian politics, which 
he described as a "paradox" of Messianic uni- 
versalism and secular nationalism. In answering 
Singer of Vassar, who proposed another alterna- 
tive of world government in addition to the 
Schtiman's alternatives of war and diplomacy, 
Schuman declared that he is "a tired world fed- 

"Man w Man" 
Giving the concluding speech of the Confer- 
ence the famous Williams professor. Dr. Schu- 
man, stated his basic a.ssumption that man is 
neither angel nor demon but that man is man. 
When we tell jjcoplc, Mr. Schuman quipped, 
that the world is neither black nor white, they 
see it "red". 

Warning that any solution to the existhig 
problem will beget other jHoblems, he concludecl 
that our job in 1958 is not to escape from this 
"eternal succession of problems" but face them 
and "save time". When the situation gets out of 
human control, much wisdom and much experi- 
ence will no longer save us from total "co-an- 
nihilation". Wc must, Schumau said, negotiate 
for the negotiables. It is a sign of madness to 
attempt to negotiate for the non-negotiable mat- 
ters e.g. die "package deal" unification of Ger- 
many on only one side's terms. We must act be- 
fore we become unable to act. 

Accompanying Schuman were eight other 
undergraduates. We were impressed not only 
with the speakers' brilliance and erudition but 
their courage to s)3cak when most of us dare not 
speak. If someone is tempted to accuse or admire 
the |iarticipaiits in this critical Conference as 
being slightly or quite un-American, i.e. not in- 
nocent enough, then one might answer with 
Kierkegaard that they are at least not ignorant, 
since innocence is ignorance in the crucial sense. 


Bif Ernie Iinhoff 

The Violetta of Maria Callas, jjresented twice 
recently in New York, and Maria Schell's per- 
formance in The Brid<^e at the Walden last 
week call to mind the problem, peculiar in eii- 
tertaininent, of the ]5rima iloima jisyche. 

The term prima donna usually linked with 
opera is that special genre of female giant whose 
lame rests as much on personality as on talent, 
in tlie old days the exalted divas at the Meti'o- 
p,)litan and elsewhere made tliemselves as stormy 
and glamorous olfstage as on, and were both 
lo\eit and hated as a result. 

Today times are changed, and "grandstand- 
ing' has become (juite subdued. Nexcrtheless, 
the comiilete separation of artistic and other con- 
duct of certain o|K'ra singers is still being denied 
by the public mind. Maria Callas affords the 
outstanding example for our purposes. 

True Performer 

Callas in spite of, and probably more because 
of a distinctly personal style of singing is un- 
deniably one of the true ])erformers in opera to- 
day. She is also an actress, rather a rare phe- 
nomenon in her field. On top of all this she is 
an emotional prima donna. 

Thus, the ]5roblein. While most music fol- 
lowers content themselves with the first two 
traits, the general public at the same time finds 
itself terribly concerned with her unprofessional 
activities, either hating or loving her feuds with 
dressmakers, her mother and baritone Sordello or 
tenor Di Stepbano et al. 

Criticism of her art is thereby often colored 
by criticism of her ego. Thus unpenetrating col- 
umnists as Hy Gardner dote on her "tantrums", 
the American Guild of Musical Artists is con- 
sidering banning her temporarily from U. S. 
concerts and operas, and fiery Euroi^ean papers 
condemn her "cold-bloodedness" and "melodra- 


A more subtle and serious problem concerning 
(Dallas arises when, as recently witnessed in 
Rome, the artist allows her temperamental na- 
ture actively to interfere with the presentation 
of her talent. To date she has walked out on 
four scheduled operas precipitating the AGMA's 
l^ossible ouster move and in Italy proposed na- 
tional legislation concerning her professional fu- 
ture in Rome and perhaps even Milan. 

This is a personal question only the prima 
donna herself can answer. It might be noted not 
as a coin]ilcte excuse for her actions but in pass- 
ing that she has had sup)5ort from forces other 
than Elsa Maxwell. Various top flight singers as 
the Met's Licia Albanese, whom we could talk 
with after her Boheme last week, have defended 
Callas on the grounds of the extreme pressure 

Maria Schell 

The other case in jioint is another European 
Maria, Fraulcin Schell. This German actress' 
performances (as The Bridge's Helga) for all 
))ractical purposes are "fabelhaft" (incredible). 
Yet ijroportionately too much attention is drawn 
to her quite undeniable eccentricities, strikingly 
like Mdm. Callas' fanatic awareness of her envi- 
ous professional position, ob,stinacy and frank 
prizing of material wealth and audience's plau- 

The price of genius on stage is often idiosvn- 
erasv off stage. Witness notables in other fields; 
alcoholic Dylan Thomas, expectorating, acidic 
Ted Williams, drug-addicted Dante Rosetti, oft- 
married and irregular Hollywood personages. 

The artist's professional publicity is some- 
times enhanced, sometimes weakened, both, by 
exploiters of the sensational. Tlie dramatic per- 
formance, however, in most cases should be con- 
sidered by itself alone and not with the elements 
of the temperamental prima donna ego. The play 
not the byplay is forever the thing. 

Obviously A Misnomer 

Ihj Bill Arend 

Williams has often been called "the Princeton of the Potted 
Ivy League", much to the disgust of any Williams man within 
hearing distance. Recent devolopmcnts at Princeton tend to throw 
some serious doubts on the validity of this parallel— or stigma. 

A current Life article presents some views written by Prince- 
ton Seniors at the re(|uest of an English Professor. The Life head- 
line describes the Princetonians as "irate, defiant individualists" 
and "Prudent idealists." A more descri|5tive term could be un- 
realistic, isolated idealists and avowed snobs. The article makes no 
|3retenses that the views |5resented are tyjjieal of Princeton but 
it does try to attach these views to the |)reseiit college generation. 
Such an attachment is a direct insult to that generation. 

The views presented are idealistic enough but the attitudes of 
selfishness and sup|)osed superiority are not exactly coin|)limen- 
tary to Princeton. One Senior wrote that he wanted to be better, 
"more competent, more cajjable than the mediocre massi's, whom 
1 despise bi'cause of their a|)atliy and nietlioerity. This is why I 
work as 1 do— to ensure that I will iiexer fall into those masses." 
Another said that he did not want to associate with ))eoi)le not of 
his "tyjie" because "intimate social contact would be pointless and 
])robably boring on both sides. " 

The article does not sto|) at presenting the snobbery of the 
Prhicetoii students but goes on to show the selfishness and per- 
sonal ambition which su|i]3osetlly is characteristic of our genera- 
tion, "The Unsilent Generation". One Senior states that in order 
to prove that he is one of the "fittest" in life he is going to act 
strictly in his own self-interest and on his own behalf. ".My hopes 
for the future are based on the assuin|)tioii that I am going to have 
to take every short-cut, e\ery means at my disjjosal to achieve my 
desired ends." 

Discrimination Issue 

Manifestations of this attitude can be seen in the recent dis- 
crimination issue at Princeton raised by 2.3 So|)homores who re- 
fused bids to join eating clubs. The Undergraduate Council asked: 
"Does the university administration condone the existence of pri- 
vate autonomous groups within the Princeton community which 
assert their right to discriminate religiously?" Willi:ims can be 
justifiably proud of itself for assuring that the discriminaton issue 
on this cam|)us has bt'en met and resoKcd. Princeton should be 
ashamed lor not lollowing sooner the exam|)le ot Williams. 

More important, Williams should be proud that such evidences 
of snobbery and selfishness are not widely prevalent here. Tiie 
traditions of acceptauee of indivitluals of all "types"' and the fruit- 
ful experience of living with all kinds of in(lividuals have long 
been a |)art of the W illiams life. From the Haystack Monument' 
foreign missionary moyement to recent examples of college spirit 
such as Total Oiiportunity, strong support for athletic teams, and 
even the imjiressive Freshman ice sculpture, Williams men have 
proven themselves to be tolerant and unselfish. 

Obviously the designation of Williams as "the Princeton of 
the Potted Ivy League"' is a misnomer and should be greeted with 
indignant defense by the true Williams man. 

Ivy League 

Is it ever Ivy! "Why, Coke is the most 
correct beverage you can possibly 
order on campus. Just look around you. 
"What are the college social leaders 
going for? Coca-Cola! So take a leaf 
out of their Ivy League book and do the 
same! Enjoy the good taste of Coke!

Arab Rendezvous With History 

By Abdul Wohabe 

Editor's Note: A junior at Williiiim

latioits did), Wolud)e lives in 'Zidmir, 
Iniq. 'I'liis (irlicic phwes the forma- 
tion of the V. A. l\. in the context of 
the Arab juttiotud niovenwnt as a 
whole. It does not refh'i-t the tu it ■, 
of the editors. 

At 5:10 one afternoon last week, 
representatives of two Arab States 
— Egypt and Syria — concluded 
their conference in Cairo by sign- 
ing a historic proclamation. 

The proclamation brought into 
being a voluntary reunion of two 
Arab states dismembered, for dif- 
ferent reasons by different foreign 
powers, eight centuries ago. To- 
morrow there will be a plebiscite 
in Egypt and Syria to make the 
Union official and to elect its new 

Arab Nationalism 

The establishment of the United 
Arab Republic is, so far, the high- 
est expression of the Arab nation- 
al movement. It is not an isolated 
event; nor is it a final accom- 
plishment. It is a rendezvous with 
history, one as old as the history 
of man himself. The Union's gen- 
esis must be envisioned within the 
total context of the Arab national 

The motives behind the Union's 
establishment are inseparable 
from the historical and national 
aspirations of the Arab peoples. 
The Union's prospects and poten- 
tialities — whatever its accomplish- 
ments may be — cannot be ab- 
stracted from the totality of ur- 
ges, hopes and determinations 
which inhabit the Arab mind. 

Yet, the apparent differences 
within the Arab society, the dis- 
sension in Arab political circles, 
and the rivalries of the rulers give 
the impression that Arab unity, if 
not wholly unreal, is still very far 

What, then, are the elements of 
reality in this idea which seems 
so difficult to assess? Unity is the 
basic norm in the life of the Arab 
people. Their division into sepai'- 
ate entities is a transient phase of 
foreign intiiision which finally e- 
rupted into the "lava flow" from 
Western volcanic activities that 


spread itself over Palestine. 

Unifying Forces 

The similarity of topographical 
and climatical conditions in the 
Arab countries have formed simi- 
larities in the social structure. The 
continuity of civilization has also 
made for a unity of outlook. In 
towns, villages and cities through- 
out the Arab world, the history of 
man is represented in unbroken 
line from the cave to the Sputnik 
age. Successive covers of dirt load- 
ed with massive indexes of history 
testify to the remote origin and 
continuity of human effort in this 

Beliefs and practices, which can 
be traced to the infinite past, are 
still current among the people. 
Next to this unity of civilization, 
a great unifying force Is provided 
by Islam, if not as a religion, per- 
haps as a culture and a way of life. 
In thiii sense Islam belongs not 
only to those who profess It, but 
is the heritage of those who don't. 

The Arabic language Is one of 
the strongest bonds which hold 
the Arabs together. The modem 
Arab renaissance began with the 
revival of classical Arabic. The 
culture of which Arabic is the 
medium of expression is the com- 
mon heritage of all Arabs. 

The loss of political unity early 
in Arab history did not affect the 
basic unity of Arab culture and 
society. And even this unreal loss 

of unity was healed when the Arab 
countries, from 1516 to 1918, form- 
ed part of one political system un- 
der the Ottoman Empire. 
Past Failures 
The disintegration of the Em- 
pire led to various attempts to re- 
create the Arab nation as a poli- 
tical entity. These attempts failed. 
Partly because the movements 
lacked genuine, native leadership, 
but chiefly because the Western

Varsity Hockey Blasts MIT 10-0; 
Norwich Wins 4-3 As Rally Fails 

By Josevli Wheelock 

In two weekend games the varsity hockey team broke even 
as they dropped a close one to Norwich 4-3 after soundly defeat- 
injr MIT by a 10-0 score. 

Friday night's game saw the Ephmen meet a badly under- 
manned and outclassed MIT team on the liome ice. The first period 
was dominated by Williams as they controlled the puck in the 
visitors' zone. Fierce checking by 

Ephmen Place 5txfA| Purple Swimmers Down Bowdoin; 
In Middlehury SkSng Lum Wins Twice In 51-35 Victory 

the Engineers prevented a score 
until Lowden took a pass from 
Fisher and flipped it into the nets 
at 9:11. Five minutes later Burgert 
duplicated the feat to put the Eph- 
men ahead 2-0. 

Eight More 
In the second period good de- 
fensive play again held Williams 
to two goals. The third period, 
however, was a different story. The 
Ephmen seemed to control the 
game almost at will, netting six 
more goals for a final score of 10- 

Right-wing Bob Lowden execut' 
ed the hat trick, scoring in all 
three periods; while MIT goalie 
Dick Burgle took some of the sting 
out of the Williams attack with 
his 51 saves. 


Saturday afternoon Williams op- 
posed a slightly favored Norwich 
six. PouiTiler opened the scoring 
for Norwich early in the first peri- 
od as he slipped one by goalie 
Denny Doyle. Minutes later Cap- 
tain Dave Cook evened the score 
at 1-1 after taking a pass from 
Rich Lombard. 

Norwich scored three more times 
to surge into a 4-1 lead before 
Williams again tallied on a shot by 
Woody Bmgert at 7:12 of the third 
period. Six minutes later the Eph- 
men scored again to bring the 
score to 4-3. Though Doyle was 
taken out in favor of a 6th skater, 
Williams was unable to tie the 

6-9 Record 

The result of the weekend's ac- 
tivity gave the hockey team a six 
win, nine loss record for the sea- 
son. The next home game will be 
on Friday against Army. 

Zete Wins Ski Title

after a year's layoff last week and

Frosh Rout Vermont; 
Hawkins Scores Two 

Winning their third game of the 
year, the Williams freshman hock- 
ey team defeated Vermont Acad- 
emy 7-2 last Thursday on home 

Second line center "Boots" Cole 
man opened the scoring early in 
the first period on a slap shot that 
found the mark. Williams increas- 
ed its lead later in the same period 
when Larry Hawkins skated a 
round the defense and scored on 
a backhand shot. 

Ephs Increase Lead 

The freshman split the game 
wide open in the second period. 
After defenseman John Whitney 
scored on a screen shot from the 
blue line, the first line of Haw- 
kins, Lowe and Relnaman whip- 
ped in three quick goals within 
two minutes. George Lowe fed a 
pass across the ice to Hawkins who 
added one himself, then set up 
Laurie Relnaman for the sixth 

The third period saw the pace 
slow as each team added one more 
to make the final score 7-2.

College Printers For a Quarter of o Century 

Participating in its third meet 
of the season, the Williams Var- 
sity ski team placed sixth In the 
Eastern Intercollegiate Ski Cham- 
pionships at Middlebury. 

Although individual scores im- 
proved for the Ephmen, a fall by 
Jim Becket in the slalom proved 
to be the one bad break that will 
keep Williams, as a team, from 
competing in the NCAA meet at 
Dartmouth in two weeks. 

The best performance of the 
day was turned in by co-captain 
Becket as he placed 8th in the 
downhill. Sophomore Bill Judson 
ran 9th in the slalom followed by 
Geoff Fisher in tenth place. Beck- 
et also copped an eleventh in the 
cross-country. | 

Dartmouth edged out Middle- 
bury, the host team, to avenge 
their loss at the Williams Carnival. 
Finishing behind the Panthers 
were St. Lawrence, New Hamp- 
shire, Vermont, Williams, Norwich, 
Yale, La Valle and Syracuse. 

The point margin was very 
close between Williams and Ver- 
mont and the jumping once again 
proved to be the real difference. 

Individuals who place In the top 
ten at the Easterns are qualified 
to compete in the NCAA Champ- 
ionships. This will probably mean 
that the best of Williams' skiers 
will compete.

A Campus-to-Career Case History 

Bill Rhode (left) at the site of New Orleans' new Claiborne Street Industrial Canal Bridge. 

"Problems keep life interesting 

for a telephone engineer 

"I've taken part in all kinds of en- 
gineering projects during the five years 
I've been with the telephone com- 
pany," says Bill Rhode, M.E., Tulane, 
'52. "Each project brings special 
problems to solve. 

"Take a couple of recent jobs I did 
as examples. One was to plan and 
oversee the relocation of telephone fa- 
cilities near a new drawbridge. The 
job included designs for attaching tele- 
phone cable to the finished bridge and 
for providing service to the bridge- 
tender's office and the locks. 

"The other job was completely dif- 

ferent. I was asked to make an ex- 
perimental installation of some newly 
developed line concentrator equip- 
ment. After selecting the test location, 
I engineered facilities for the remote 
concentrator unit, and trunk plant to 
the central office. 

"Another thing about these jobs — 
they're a result of the growth of the 
telephone business. Not only do prob- 
lems like these keep life interesting 
for a telephone engineer, but they 
mean that careers are full of oppor- 
tunities to show what you can do and 
get ahead." 

Wilmer J. Rhode is with Southern Bell Telephone 
and Telegraph Company. He is one of many 
young men who are finding interesting and re- 
warding careers with the Bell Telephone Com- 
panies. Ask your placement officer for informa- 
tion about the careers these companies offer. 




Eph Matmen Tied By 
Colgate; Frosh Taken 

Leadiiif^ for most ol the match, the varsity wrestling team 
was finally overcome and tied, 14-14, by Colgate last Saturday in 
the Lasell gym. 

The highlight of the match for Williams was Stu Smith's ( 130) 
pin of Colgate's Maury Eaton. The 
pin came at 3:51 of the second 
period on a half-nelson and 

Moore Successful 

Kuhrt Wienecke, captain Jim 
Hutchinson and Dave Moore also 
turned in successful performances 
for the Ephs. Wienecke, wrestling 
at 137, overpowered Dick Mc- 
Shane, 8-1. Hutchinson scored 
three reversals to outpoint Ted 
Tobias in the 147 pound class. At 
177, Moore led all the way to 
beat Dick Kelly, 8-6. 

Wally Matt, Steve Lewis, Pete 
Carney, and Denny Mitchell were 
the Williams' fatalities. Matt at 
137 was beaten by Paul Martin, 
3-1. Lewis (157) was outpointed 
by Ted Houser, 6-3, while Carney 
lost to Skip Schult at 167, 3-0. 
In the final match, Mitchell was 
pinned by Pete Newell at 5:39 of 
the second period. 

Kent Crushes Frosh 

Winning all but two matches, 
the Kent wrestling team powered 
its way to a 24-6 victory over the 
Williams freshmen at Lasell Gym 
Saturday. Only undefeated Skip 

.Sophomore STEVE LEWIS in 
action against Colgate last Sat- 

Chase and Jack Staples could sal- 
vage wins for the Eph frosh.

Yale Defeats Eph 
Squashmen, 7-2 

The Varsity Squash team di'op- 
ped its third match on Friday to 
Yale 7-2. OUie Stafford, the per- 
ennial strongman on the team, 
and Roger Southall, the number 
three player, were the only ones 
to ring up wins for Williams. 

Stafford defeated Yale's Son- 
ny Howe 15-12, 10-15, 15-11, 15-12 
to run his season's record to 5 vic- 
tories and one defeat. Through- 
out the match OUie mixed deep 
sliots and cross-courts, to keep 
Howe in the backcourt, with sharp 
angles to take the contest. Greg 
Tobin lost in straight games to 
Harvey Sloane, Yale's captain. 
Southall won a good match from 
temperamental Charles Kingsley 
15-13. 9-15, 15-9, 15-8. 

Drop Last Six 

Shulman, Bowen, Beckwith, and 
Weaver lost four games. Beck- 
with's close match was lost in the 
last seconds of an extra-point 
game when he was hit with the 
ball. Bob McCoy beat Ernie 
Fleishman in straight games for 
the number seven match. Chris 
Schaeffer lost a heartbreaker 8-15, 
15-7, 8-15, 15-8, 17-16. 

The team is now on the I'oad un- 
til March 1 when Williams meets 
Amherst here. Princeton, Wesley- 
an, and Dartmouth are the next 
opponents for the Ephs. Wesleyan 
shouldn't prove too tough for 
Chaffee and his troupe.

Williams Tops Jeffs 
In Close 64-55 Contest 

Bif Jan Rozendaal 
Playinf^ steady, controlled hall, the William.s varsity dominat- 
ed play to gain a 64-55 victory over Amherst Saturday in Lasell 
gym. The Ephs gained an early lead which they clung to tena- 
ciously and were never seriously threatened. Sophomore [. B. 

Mori'is led the Williams attack 
with 16 points while Jeff star Bill 
Warren was high for the game 
with 20. 

Early Eph Lead 

The early moments of the game 
saw the purple take the lead to 
stay on two quick baskets by Mor- 
ton and two foul shots by Bill 
Hedeman. A tight man to man de- 
fense and fine defensive rebound- 
ing by Morton, Hedeman and 
Morris combiiied to hamper the 
Amherst attack. 

The fine outside shooting of 
Pete Willmott and the deadly 
scoring of Jeff Morton who col- 
lected 12 points in the first half, 
were the vital factors in breaking 
up the Jeffs' zone and giving the 
Ephs a 35-27 half lead. 

Steady Second Half 

The start of the second half 
saw Amherst resort to a man to 
man defense in an attempt to get 
back into contention. A bad break 
for Williams came early in the 
half when Morton picked up his 
fourth foul and was taken out 
temporarily. With Morton out, the 
slack was taken up by Morris and 
Hedeman. Morris scored well on 
driving shots while Hedeman 
steadied the Eph attack and con- 
verted six out of ten foul shots in 
the second half to end up with a 
total of 13 points for the game. 
Morton returned to the game but 
soon fouled out and only collected 
two points in the second half to 
make his total 14. Williams was 
able to control the ball well in 
the final minutes as they let the 
clock run out and put the wraps 
on the nine point victory. 

Sophomore J. B. MORRIS, who 
led Eph scoring in Amherst vic- 
tory with 16 points. 

Frosh Lose To Yale 

The Williams Freshman squash 
team lost its third match of the 
season Friday to the Yale frosh. 
Only Fred Kasten and Marty Lin- 
sky, the number seven and nine 
players respectively, were able to 
win their matches.

in their present and future, look 
forward to the day when one Arab 
Nation should be united in one 
State . . ." 

Again, (Art. 75), both Presi- 
dent and Representative solemnly 
promise to work for the realiza- 
tion of the unity of the Arab 
countries. Seven years later, a new 
constitution was laid down in Cai- 
ro under the present leadership. 
The Egyptian constitution reiter- 
ates almost to the word the Syri- 
an's solemn promise to work to- 
ward unity. Thursday, this rendez- 
vous with history becomes a reali- 
ty in the form of the United Arab 


It has been shown here that Ar- 
ab unity is not an innovation, a 
borrowed concept, or an alien ide- 
ology. It is not a concern of a cer- 
tain individual or a group of in- 
dividuals alone. Neither is it a 
mere expedient and hastily-packed 
scheme provoked by a temporary 
incident, and lacking in justifica- 
tion and in support. 

On the contrary, the Arabs are 
recreating a social order which 
they knew when their society was 
creative and dynamic. And no na- 
tion can be forced to part with its 
past and its heritage, most of 
all the Arabs, the possessors, if 

Pull and complete unity is by not the sole possessors, of history, 
no means the goal and concern of i Challenge to West 

Egypt and Syria alone. The fight The impact of this development 

Thus, Arab civilization, recreat- 
ed, has a message with something 
distinctive and positive to offer to 
the world community. And as fai- 
as the Western world is concerned, 
the most important single fact is 
that the Arabs are in process of 
growth; they are in 
change. This change 
challenge which the West can ill 
afford to ignore. The Arabs are 
challenging the West to meet 
world problems with responsible 
decisions not motivated by sheer 
self-interest and economic or po- 
litical expediences. Not by ill-con- 
ceived military schemes planted 

The Arabs are demanding from 
the West a just and fair response 
to their world citizenship on the 
basis of justice and equality. They 
demand that they be given the 
same self-governing status and au- 
thority which is claimed by nations 
who wish to deal with them. 

Finally, it is a very delicate 
matter at this early stage to In- 
dicate what direction this Union 
will take. It is not wholly difficult, 
however, to realize that from now 
on it is the Arabs, and the Arab 
process of , P^°P''^ ^'^°^^- who will decide

The west ca:i ill-afford not to 
take notice of this highly crucial 
development in a region which is 
busy rediscovering its values, and 
which has now become conscious 
of its creative forces in a world 
that is so closely interdependent.

Job Interviews Suffer 
In Business Recession 

The recession which has hit the imtioii's economy ciuised four- 
teen recruiting orf^anizatioiis to cancel iiitcMvicvvs with jolj-scekint^ 
VVilhanis students. 

Ahhouffh the withdrawals have hecii halaiiced hy unsolicited 
additions to the Placement Bu 




reau's schedule, Director Manton 
Copeland stated that "almost 
without exception" the 114 organ 
izations which are recruiting here 
between midyears and spring va- 
cation are exercising "greater se- 
lectivity" this year. 

Copeland predicted that fewer 
students would be invited for a 
second interview, and fewer would 
be offered jobs. 

Said Economics Professor Ker 
mit Gordon: "The bloom is off 
the roses." 

Ford, IJSS 
Cancellations included Pord, 
U. S. Steel and three corporations 
which build heavy machinery. 
This, according to Gordon, indi- 
cates a connection with the cur- 
rent American economic situa- 

Tiie recession is just beginning 
to hit the producers of capital 
goods. Ford's sales are off twenty 
per cent of capacity. 

The cause for the nationwide 
setback is the decline in invest- 
ment spending which followed the 
overextended investment boom of 
1956 and 1957. It is not the result 
of mere invenioi^ pilcups, which 
marked the brief, self-correcting 
economic declines of 1948 and 


According to Gordon the forces 
behind the current economic 
downturn resemble those of 1933. 
Yet they can be quickly corrected 
by a tax cut or increased govern- 
ment spending. 

Copeland too is optimistic. The 
cancellations of placement inter- 
views is "quite temporary." All 
recruiting organizations who can- 
celled have reserved a place in 
next year's Placement Bureau

Playfalr's highly successful pro- 
duction of "The Importance of Be- 
ing Earnest" will be revived for a 
tour beginning April 5 when It 
will be sponsored by the Vassar 
Club of Essex (N. J.) County as a 

entitle methods of thought. This 
was achieved by presenting the 
different views on the general sub- 
ject of optics espoused by three 
important scientific thinkers: Ro- 
ger Bacon, Leonardo de Vinci and 
Sir Isaac Newton. 

Changing Attitudes 

The discussion was oriented to 
an historical approach, as the pan- 
elists dealt with the revolution in 
scientific thought which charac- 
terized the 17th Century and noted 
the process of change from medi- 
eval to modern attitudes toward 
the universe, 

Synnott opened the forum with 
a brief exposition of the medieval 
approach to knowledge. He said 
that medieval scientists attempted 
to solve the ultimate "whys" of 
the universe. Their method was 
to reason from authorities using 
logic to expose contradictions and 
arrive at truth. 

Value of Science 

Professor Rohr discussed Roger 
Bacon and his writings on optics. 
Me pointed out Bacon's convic- 
tion that science was valuable not 
lor its own sake, but for its value 
as a weapon to conserve and 
strengthen Chi'istendom against 
the enemy. 

Leonardo de Vinci and Sir Isaac 
Newton were discussed by Profes- 
sors Nauert and Parke respective- 
ly. Nauert stressed de Vinci's fail- 
ure to tie his observations to sci- 
entific generalization, and Parke 
concluded the discussion with a 
summary of Newton's method In 
which mathematics became the 

benefit for their scholarship fund, language of science. 

Harter was also a Junior Advi- 
sor, a member of the Gul Busi- 
ness Board, and a four-year mem- 
ber of the W. C. C. He is currently

The Tunisian Incident 

By MucAlinter Brown 
Professor of Political Science 

The recent hi.story of France and the Arab 
world ha.s witiics.secl oixscure military officers 
spriiiginj^ from the rank of colonel into national 
leader.sliip dmin<^ times of eri.sis. The careers of 
Charles de Gaulle, Col. Abdul Nasser, or Col. H. 
Serraj come to mind. The French Colonel of the 
air force, however, who ordered the rejjrisal raid 
on the Tunisian villaf;;e of Sakiet - Sidi - Youssef, 
will remain obscure and unheralded, even though 
his action visibly affected his nation's history. 

The action of this I'Vench officer in locally 
ordering a res|)onse to hostile actions mounted 
from Tunisian territory was not withont authority 
in the f^eneral jjolicy laid down by the Paris [Gov- 
ernment, even though it greatly stretched that 
authorization of "hot pursuit" retaliation. French 
Premier Gaillard did not disown the action be- 
fore the National Assembly, and he easily evaded 
formal condemnation in the chamber by a count- 
erattack on Tunisia for having aided the Algerian 
rebels. Y'et this classic example of military deci- 
sion-making in the field without proper consider- 
ation of overall political objectives will be per- 
haps more damaging in its conse(|uences for the 
nation than the actions of a far more exalted of- 
ficer of the United States, who was relieved of 
his su|5reme command in Korea for failure to 
respect the political requirements set by the na- 
tional |)ol icy-makers. 

It has been observed that this single raid in 
all its excess of kiUing and destruction irrevo- 
cably iirternationalized the war within France's 
Department of Algeria. Perhaps so, thought the 
present "good offices" arrangement with the 
United States and Great Britain will kee)i the in- 
ternational discussion within the Western family 
for the moment at least. Yet, for the United States, 
the war has been internationalized in a most 
emharassing fashion. American-made bombs and 
planes were largely instrumental in the slaughter 
at Sidi-Youssef. And for Tunisia the departure of 
fifteen thousand French troops remaining there 
as the last vestige of the Protectorate which was 
liquidated in 1954 has now become an unavoid- 
able issue. 

President Bomgniba is even more impelled 
by public opinion in his efforts to exjjel the 
French than is Premier Gaillard restricted by the 
Right Wing in his efforts to conciliate Tunisia by 
paying an indemnity. Under the circumstances, 
United States and British "good offices" are 
just the remedy the doctor ordered. One might 
even hope for a settlement involving NATO tak- 
ing over the naval base of Bizerte, with Tunisia 
eventually joining the alliance. 

The thought of ultimate settlements poses 
the critical question now facing the USA. Should 
we seize the opportunity afforded iis by the im- 
portune colonel to follow Senator Kennedy's ad- 
vice and initiate an "inter-national effort to de- 
rive for Algeria the basis of an orderly achieve- 

ment of independence'"? Or should we adhere to 
the policy of tolerance of French agonies on this 
issue which Washington has hitherto followed, 
and which Dean Acheson has recently reaffirmed 
by chiding Keimedy for his naivete and harmful 
meddling? The French do not appear ready yet 
to enter a discussion of the larger issue, but would 
rather concentrate instead upon obliging Tiniisia, 
to seal off the arms traffic across her border into 
Algeria. Whatever gestures may be extracted on 
this issue from Bourguiba, he will never consent 
to dry up the lifeblood of the Algerian army and 
suffer its extinguishment in the manner of Tito 
and the Greek rebels in 1949. Nor is it likely 
that even 400,000 Frenchmen can suppress the 
Algerian guerilla war long enough to effect a 
graceful jjolitieal withdrawal such as the British 
are fashioning in formerly bl()od-s|iattered Cy- 

The Sidi-Youssef bombing has further di- 
minished the prestige of France and accelerated 
her de])arture from Tunisian bases, but it unfor- 
tunately is not e(|uivalent to Dien Bien Phu. No 
single incident could be short of the loss of a 
major city to the rebels, for the French ijresence 
in Algeria is rootetl far more dee])ly and exjien- 
sively than its interest were in Inclo-Cbina. No 
French ]Dolitieiaii can take over the Premiershi]o 
today with a jjledge to licpiidate the war as did 
Mendes-France with Indo-China. Yet the United 
States can impose guarantees that our military 
e(|uipment not be used for "domestic" defense. 
Bourguiba and Mohammed V of Morocco can 
continue to insist u]5on tht> danger of political 
gra\itatioii of North Africa to the growing orbit 
of President Nasser. Servan-Schreibers can con- 
iuue to expose the brutality and fruitlessness of 
"icneh military operations in Algeria. Weariness 
and despair will bring France to the point of re- 
oncilialion with a fate which most intelligent 
I'renehmen already see ahead of them. The Unit- 
ed States should judiciously encourage this re- 
conciliation but iireachment and harassment by 
us will not hasten the necessary conversion to 
reality of the French public. One can hope that 
our good offices will be conducted with delicacy, 
privacy, and imagination. One might also wish 
that our unofficial good offices extend to the Al- 
'j;erian Liberation Movement in a manner that 
ini<;ht encourage their leaders to meet the French 
half wav in a mutually beneficial compromise. 

Letter To The Editor 

To the Record: 

Once again, the low state of intellectual con- 
cern on the Williams campus was vividly dem- 
onstrated by the sparse attendance at the well- 
publicized lecture of Clarence K. Streit, Monday 
last. The sjieaker, who traveled many miles in 
the face of difficult weather conditions, could 
crtainly expect a larger percentage of the stu- 
dent body to walk the length of "fraternity row" 
to bear his thought provoking message. One no- 
ticed, however, that despite the weather, the 
management of the Walden theatre and Brigitte 
iiardot had no difficulty in drawing a crowd. 

If Williams College expects its Lecture Com- 
mittee to continue presenting high caliber speak- 
ers, and if it wishes to maintain its reputation as 
an outstanding liberal arts college more real 
student interest should be forthcoming.

feel, that tlieij appreciate a realitij so present in

Today's column is directed at those young female underpradu- 
ates who have recently pledged sororities and are worried, poor 
lambs, that they won't make good. Following is a list of simple 
iDstructions which, if faithfully observed, will positively guaran- 
tee that you will be a mad success as a sorority girl. 

First, let us take up the matter of housemothers. The house- 
mother is your friend, your guide, your mentor. You must treat 
her with respect. When you wish to speak to her, address her as 
"Mother Sigafoos" or "Ma'am." In no circumstances must you 
Bay, "Hey, fat lady." 

Second, let us discuss laundry. Never hang your wash on the 
front porch of the sorority house. This is unsightly and shows 
a want of breeding. Use the Chapter Room. 

Third, meals. Always remember that planning and preparing 
meals for a houseful of healthy girls is no simple task. Your cook 
goes to a great deal of trouble to make your menu varied and 
nourishing. The least you can do is show your appreciation. 
Don't just devour your food; it. Exclaim with delight, 
"What delicious pork jowls!" or "What a yummy soupbone!" 
or "What scrumptious fish heads!" or "What clear water!" 

Fourth, clothing. Never forget that your ai)pearance reflects 
not just on yourself but on the whole house. It was well enough 
before you joined a sorority to lounge around campus in your 
old middy blouse and gym bloomers, but now you must take 
great pains to dress in a manner which excites admiring com- 
ments from all who observe you. A few years ago, for example, 
there was a Chi Omega named Camille Ataturk at the Univer- 
sity of Iowa who brought gobs of glory to all her sorors. 

CMilieUioni^eM^^iiioa^ /^//^/^... 

Camille hit on the ingenious notion of suiting her garb to 
the class she was attending. For instance, to English Lit she 
wore a buskin and jerkin. To German she wore lederhosen and 
carried a stein of pilsener. To Econ she wore 120 yards of ticker 
tape. Her shiningest hour came one day when she dressed as a 
white mouse for Psych Lab. Not only her Chi Omega sisters 
but the entire student body went into deep mourning when she 
was killed by the janitor's cat. 

Finally, let us take up the most important topic of all. I 
refer, of course, to dating. 

As we have seen, the way you dress reflects on your sorority, 
but the men you date reflect even more. I3c absolutely certain 
that your date is an acceptable fellow. Don't boat about the 
bush; him point-blank, "Are you an acceptable fellow?" 
Unless he replies, "Yeah, hey," send him packing. 

But don't just take his word that he is acceptable. Inspect 
him closely. Are his fingernails clean? Is his black leather jacket 
freshly oiled? Is his ukulele in tune? Does he carry public 
liability insurance? And, most significant of all, does he smoke 

If he's a Marlboro man, you know he's a lot of man. You 
know he has taste and discernment, wit and wisdom, character 
and sapience, decency and warmth, presence and poise, talent 
and grit, filter and flavor. You will be proud of him, your sorority 
will be proud of him, the makers of Marlboro will be proud of 
him, and I will be paid for this column. c ..«. m.. shui,-.

from Strawbridge and Burns. The 
tally came while the Ephmen were 
a man down. Williams had opened 
the scoring when wing Bob Low- 
den dumped in a shot at 7:23 of 
the second period. 

The regular three periods of the 
game were followed by a 10 min- 
ute sudden-death overtime which 
was characterized by fast breaks 
and several hard shots by both 
clubs. Neither team, however, was 
able to break the deadlock. 

Goalies Denny Doyle of Wil- 
liams and Don Spencer of Ham- 
ilton had 34 and 38 saves respec- 
tively and accounted for the low 
scoring in the game. 

The Purple now have a 6-9-1 
record. The next game will be on 
Friday against Army at home. 

Weekend Hockey Set 

This weekend the varsity hockey 
team has two games scheduled. 
One will be against Army on Fri- 
day and the other with Wesleyan 
on Saturday. 

The Army sextet boasts one of 
the stronger teams in the East 
and should prove to be one of the 
toughest opponents of the season 
for Williams. Last year the Ca- 
dets defeated the Ephs, 8-4, at 
West Point. 

The Wesleyan game will be run 
on an informal basis since the 
Cardinals, not having a varsity 
hockey team, will field a "club 
squad" for this contest. Coach 
McCormick intends to alternate 
the two lines that he has used in 
the past several contests. Matches 
with A. I. C. and Amherst next 
week will conclude the season.

7 "No" answers mean you better get on to Camels 
fast. Fewer than 6 "No's" and it really doesn't

But if you want to enjoy smoking as never before, 
switch to Camels. Nothing else tastes so rich,

New Data Implements 
Roper Center Here 

The American Institute ol Pub-

Gallup Poll, has added 2,500,000 
IBM cards, representing six mil- 
lion dollars worth of original da- 
ta, to the Roper Center at Wil- 
liams College. 

Only six months after its es- 
tablishment the center has receiv- 
ed poll materials from 18 public 
opinion reseaix:h organizations. 
Represented in the collection now 
is 12 to 15 million dollars worth 
of poll data in the form of 7,500, 
000 IBM cards. 

Available to Scholars 

Each year the contributing poll 
group will add new materials, 
forming a cons^c'ntly growing fund 
of research information for serious 
scholarship. Prior to the estab- 
lishment of the Williams Center, 
most of the materials were scat- 
tered, unpublished and not read- 
ily available to scholars in the so- 
cial sciences. 

Now, however, accredited indi- 
viduals and groups may obtain 
summaries of the data in the cen- 
ter. For minor projects, tabula- 
tions will be made on the center's 
own IBM machines. For more 
complex projects the center will 
loan duplicate sets of the materi- 
als. Facilities are also available to 
qualified scholars who wish to 
work there.

Major Change Slated For Class 01 '62 

Keller Discusses 
Pioneer Williams 
Education Course 

The new course in the history of 
American education which will be 
offered next year is the first "ed- 
ucation" course offered at Wil- 

History 17a is being added to 
the curriculum as a result of the 
efforts of Brown Professor of His- 
tory Charles R. Keller, chairman 
of the department, who returned 
last term from two years of duty 
as director of the Advanced 
Placement Program sponsored by 
the College Entrance Examination 
Board. Keller plans to teach the 

It will be designed for prospec 
tive teachers and those who have 
a non-vocational interest In edu 
cation. At least one source has 
given tentaitive approval for 
teacher certification credits. Kel- 
ler calls the course another move 
by Williams to place the stamp of 
approval on the teaching profes- 
sion with emphasis on the devel- 
opment of a supply of well trained 
teachers for the public schools. 

Topics Scheduled 

Tlie course will deal with edu- 
cation as an aspect of American 
culture in relation to the main 
currents of intellectual history. 
Keller plans to include such topics 
as: the Puritans and the founda- 
tion of education; Jefferson's 
contributions to education; the 
public school movement; develop- 
ment of the liberal arts college; 
progressive education; and the 
present crisis in public education. 
A "junior" course, the prerequisite 
will be History 3-4 (American). 

Keller believes there Is a defi- 
nite need for "education" courses 
in a liberal arts college, especially 
"for prospective parents and tax- 
payers who should be well-versed 
in the . . . problems of education." 

Accelerated Program 
Allows 3-Year Degree 

Beginninf^ next fall, freshmen who enter Williams with ad- 
vanced placement credit will be allowed to complete the re((uire- 
nients for the Bachelor of Arts dej^ree in less than four years, Dean

Six Faculty Members 
Preparing Publications 

By Georg^e Reatb 

Pour books by members of the 
Williams faculty will be published 
within the next three months, 
while several other men are in 
the process of preparing publica- 

The official publishing date for 
Professor Whitney S. Stoddard's 
"Adventure in Architecture" is 
March 26. Longman & Greene is 
the publisher. Stoddard's book tells 
the story of the building of St. 
John's, a Benedictine monastery, 
school, and college in CoUegeville, 

The building is designed for pro- 
gressive expansion over a 100 year 
period. Stoddard pays special at- 
tention to the cooperation between 
the architect. Marcel Breuer, and 
the monks. Included in the book 
are 91 pictures, taken mostly by 
the author.

Snow Clearance Work 
Receives High Praise 

Last weekend's snow storm, in 
addition to inconveniencing many 
who were either stranded or snow- 
ed in, cost the college about $2000 
and even caused Dean Vincent M. 
Barnett to consider cancelling 

Barnett said that there was 
some question during the storm 
as to whether students and fac- 
ulty would be able to get to clas- 
ses. After consultation with mem- 
bers of the faculty, however, the 
dean decided that classes could 
80 on. 

The job of digging the college 
out from under the blanket of 
snow which the storm deposited 
fell to the grounds crew. For their 
work, these men received high 
praise from Superintendent of 
Buildings and Grounds Peter Wel- 
anetz. He said, "I am very proud 
of our grounds crew which bore 
the brunt of this thing without 

Long Hours 

In order to dig the college out, 
the grounds crew worked night 
and day. At one point trucks plow- 
ed for 21 consecutive hours. After 
a two-hour nap the men were out 
plowing for another eight hours, 
and after another six hour nap, 
they were ready for another 
twelve hours of snow removal. 

The college has about five miles 
of roads and about the same a- 
mount of sidewalks plus about two 
miles of faculty driveways and 
parking lots which had to be clear- 
ed. A welcome factor in the clear- 
ance job was that there was no 
equipment breakdown. 

The extreme cold which at one 
point reached 22 degrees below 
zero also Increased the load of the 
central heating plant. A new rec- 
ord was set when three quarters 
of a million pounds of steam was 
produced in a 24-hour period. This 
is an increase of about 50 per cent 
over normal output.

the public museums of New Eng- 
land and shows representative se- 
lections from each. 

There are 400 illustrations of 
works of art contained in these 
museums accompanied by short 
critical commentary. Included in 
Faison's book are ten works of art 
to be found in the Lawrence Art 
Museum and eighteen from the 
Clark Art Institute. 

Waite, Compton 

Professor Robert G. L. Waite is 
working on a biography of Hitler 
at present and is planning to take 
a year's leave of absence in 1959 
to interview people who knew him. 
Waite did some work on this topic 
when he was awarded a Guggen- 
heim Fellowship in 1953.

Love Life Study 
Benefits Students 

Sex, Love, and Marriage, the 
series of weekly lectures given by 
Dean William G. Cole, has been 
launched into its annual eight- 
week run. 

Cole first administers a Sex 
Knowledge Inventory, designed to 
get the facts straight, followed by 
sessions on dating and pre-marital 
relations, one on "How Do You 
Know You're In Love?" one on 
engagement, and, finally, two on 
marriage itself and its expecta- 


Cole explained that the pur- 
pose in this course was twofold: 
first, to provide a basic under- 
standing of the physiology of 
sex; and second, to try to foster a 
sound attitude towards love and 

Despite their collegiate exterior. 
Cole feels that students "don't 
know as much as they think" and 
that the course is effective in its 
first, factual aim. 

He finds it difficult to evaluate 
the series itself in effectiveness on 
attitude and individual problems, 
but points out that it stimulates 
individual counseling which Is of 
considerable value. 

Popular Lectures 

Dean Cole's course has proven 
itself extremely popular in the 
past. The first of this year's ses- 
sions was attended by over 150 
juniors and seniors. A few fresh- 
men and sophomores managed to 
sneak into 111 TBL, the scene of 
the lecture series, and preview the 
privilege supposedly reserved for 
the two upper classes. 

qualified students. 

Advanced placement standing 
will be given to those students who 
have, in secondary school, receiv- 
ed credit for college level courses 
by passing either College En- 
trance Examination Board ad- 
vanced placement tests or special 
tests given by the College. 
Faculty Ruling 

According to the faculty ruling, 
those students "may, with the con- 
sent of the Dean, be permitted to 
register for extra courses and to 
accumulate credit from approved 
summer school courses, thereby at- 
taining a B. A. degree in a period 
of time shorter than four years". 

Barnett pointed out that the 
ruling is in direct opposition to 
past College policy. In the past 
students have not been allowed to 
carry more than five courses or to 
receive summer school credit un- 
less they needed to make up de- 

The ruling does not apply to 
students presently enrolled in the 
College, nor to students who enter 
without advanced placement cre- 

A section in the new College 
catalogue, scheduled for April pub- 
lication, will deal entirely with 
"Opportunities for Superior Stu- 
dents at Williams". 

The Williams move follows the 
trend established when more high 
schools and private schools began 
to offer advanced courses. History 
Professor Charles Keller has spent 
the past two years working for the 
College Entrance Examination 
Board as Advanced Placement 
Program director, traveling a- 
round the country persuading sec- 
ondary schools to offer advanced 
courses and colleges to offer credit 
for them.

Letters To The Editor 


.\lr. Arend'.s article, "Obviously a Misnomer, " 
in tbe Febniaiy 19th issue of the Rijcoiid indi- 
cates that the author is unfortunately guilty of 
the sell-same cbarges which be renders against 
the Princetonians featured in the February 17tb 
issue ol Life Magazine. He terms tliem "un- 
realistic, isolated idealists, and avowed snobs." 

lie is, first of all, unrealistic in failing to rec- 
ognize the validity of the Princeton student's 
statement of his unwillingness to associate with 
|5eople otber tban those of bis own type: "inti- 
mate social contact would be pointless and prob- 
ably boring on both sides." 

\ more serious oversigbt occurs when he 
states: "Williams can be justifiably proud of it- 
self for assuring that the discrimination issue on 
this campus has been met and resolved. Princeton 
shoidd bo ashamed for not following sooner the 
example of Williams." 

Mr. Arend is smugly confident that such 
conditions no longer exist at Williams, apparentlv 
basing his attitude on a single successful at- 
tem)^t at total ojiportunity— an attempt marked 
by a certain amount of mass hysteria on tbe part 
of the fraternities. 

We reject Mr. Aiend's attitude as one of iso- 
lated idealism. We should like to point out that 
total opjiortunity has existed on tbe Princeton 
campus for a considerable length of time, ante- 

dating the Williams' achievement by years. Fur- 
thermore, the ty]3e of discrimination described 
by the Princeton undergraduates is certainly very 
much in existence on the Williams campus, where 
many of the fraternities continue to consider 
race and religion as meaningtul factors in tlie fi- 
nal choice of members. (See Phillips' Report) 

In closing his article, Mr. Arend arrives at 
a rather confused and teimous conclusion: "the 
designation of Williams as 'the Princeton of the 
Potted Ivy League' is a misnomer and should 
be greeted with indignant defense by the true 
Williams man." The confusion is com|K)unded by 
phrasing which is false to his real meaning, i.e., 
he means that the "true Williams man" shoidd 
attack this misnomer. This conclusion asserts 
certain beliefs which contradict those of his pre- 
vious argmnents. His ap])licati()n of the adjective 
"true" to the Williams man indicates that Mr. 
Arend has in mind certain criteria which form 
the basis for this value judgemcnit, distinguish- 
ing the "true" from the "untrue". Unfortunately, 
Mr. Arend fails to define or indicate exactly 
what he means by tbe term "true", but h6 seems, 
in any case, to postulate a norm, a set pattern of 
behavior, to which any and all Williams men are 
expected to subscribe. 

We would ask how Mr. Arend reconciles his 
praise of this established norm with his praise of 
die "traditions of the acce))tance of in- 
tlividuals of all types." Not only does he place 
these restrictions on the individual, Iiut he goes 
('\en further in this direction by ex|)ecting and 
demanding a single res|ionse (i.e. "greet with in- 
,li"nant defense") from this "true Williams man," 
! linii^itiDu tbe "individual" would reject. 

We feel that this kind of vacuous idealism, 
mixed with shoddv logic and collegiate chauvin- 
ism, goes too often unheeded by the inadvertc^nt 
Williams man, stee|)ed in the bland thinking 
which Mr. .trend's article illustrates. If tbis think- 
ing represents tbe prevailing climate of ojiinion, 
then little has been gained from tbe "friu'tful ex- 
perience" of college life; if not, it .should be sing- 
led out and rejected as vagaries of thought.

To The R}:conD: 

The editorial comment appended to the let- 
ter in last week's Ri;com) decrying lack of at- 
tendence at a lectiu'e indicates two things: that 
the editor feels so superior to his readers that 
he will not condescend to attack diem in a cleai- 
Iv thought out article and that tbe editor ha,'- 
taken political science 3-4. As a journalistic pol- 
icy the inserting of "clever" comments can onl) 
be described as stupid. U|5 to now the Rkcoiu) 
has been masquerading as a college newspaper, 
not a junior edition of "Time", and aUhough mv 
journalistic experience is not as wide as that of 
our exalted editor's, I would postidate that a 
newspaper might better encourage reader interest 
dian sf|uelchiiig it. In closing let me say that 1 
take no stand on lectiue attendance, world feder- 
alism, or student apathy. I only feel that if the 
editor wishes to attact the thought content (not 
the facts ) of a letter he should do so ojicnly.

To The Rkcohd: 

I write this letter in a state of deejj regret and embarrassment. 
Regret that such a letter must be written; embarrassment that I 
am connected with Williams College atidetics. It is a great disap- 
pointment to me that at a school of Williams' level it becomes nec- 
essary to appeal to the student body to act like gentlemen and 
cease doing their utmost to give Williams the poor reputation it 
is rapidly gaining among its rival schools. 

The subject to whieb I am referring is the intolerable behav- 
vior of die Williams fans at athletic contests. Intolerable not only 
to the opposition but to the Williams team as well. As. a jiartici- 
pant in Williams College athletics, 1 can testify to the fact that it 
is most imcomfortable to feel compelled after a game to apologize 
to your o]i])onents for the action of yoiu' fans. As an excellent ex- 
ample I cite the recent hockey game between West Point and Wil- 
liiuiis, where the actions of the fans drove the players to un])leas- 
antrics which I am sure would nevi-r have occured had we been 
playing on .Vnny ice. 

I say in conclusion, cheering and encouraging yoiir own team 
is commendable and desired; jeering and mocking the opposing 
team is inexcusable,

Social-Residence Quad 
Proposed At Princeton 

The President of Princeton U- 
nlversity, Dr. Robert P. Golieen, 
proposed Saturday a student re- 
sidential plan similar in aim to 
one suggested by a group of Wil- 
liams students last year. 

Ir; a speech before the alumni 
association, Dr. Goheen announc- 
ed the plans for a seven million 
dollar quadrangle with eating and | 
social facilities for 250 students j 
and dormitories for 350 more. Il 
is planned as an alternative to the 
Princeton eating clubs and will al- 
so contain faculty apartments and 
a library. 

Dr. Goheen insisted it was not 
part of a program to supplant the 
present eating clubs. The new 
quadrangle is however, the first 
permanent step the university has 
taken to provide for non-club 
members. The announcement fol- 
lows a recent incident caused when 
twenty-two sophomores were not 
invited to join .sixteen of the clubs 
and refused an invitation from a 
seventeenth on the grounds that 
it was a "catch-all". 

Ted Wynn '58, one of the "Ter- 
rible 22" who proposed that Wil- 
liams fraternities be converted in- 
to "social units" with members 
assigned by lot, commented, 
"while the idea doesn't seem feasi- 
ble here, for financial reasons, it 

does reflect a trend away from 
strong social emphasis towards the 
ideals of real education. Now a 
man can be free from fraterniz- 
ing, constantly."

Alumni Magazine 
Has New Format 

The Williams Alumni Review 
has adopted a new cover design 
which appeared on its first Issue 
of 1958 last Thursday. 

Editor Ralph R. Renzi '43, calls 
the new format "The biggest 
change we have made in the Re- 
view since the size was changed 
six years ago." 

The Review is published quar- 
terly by the Society of Alumni. 
Renzi and Associate Editors Hel- 
en A. McGowan and Charles B. 
Hall '15, send out 12,000 copies of 
each issue to all alumni and many 
friends of the College. 

In an editorial, Renzi states, 
"During the past five years, the 
Review has been edited with the 
basic assumption that a candid 
discussion of campus problems 
will do much to further their 
solution." Toward this goal, the 
magazine includes articles of cur- 
rent events on the campus, re- 
prints of RECORD editorials, and 
a letter column reflecting alumni 

Features of the current issue are 
a picture section devoted to the 
undefeated football season and a 
series called "Ambling For 'Am- 
biente' " concerning summer trips 
of students abroad.

Paul Twigg's Baby 

Paul A. Twigg had been with Mich-

a year when he was assigned to a project 
that was a "dream" for a young archi- 
tectural engineer. He was to supervise 
construction of a 6-story, 175,000- 
squarc-foot addition to the telephone 
building in Grand Rapids. 

"For the next two years," Paul says, 
"I lived with the job as assistant to the 
Project Engineer. 1 interpreted the archi- 
tect's plans and specifications for the 
contractor, inspected construction, made 
on-the-spot revisions where necessary, 
and worked out the many prrblems 
which arise on a project of this size. 

"I kept the Engineering office in De- 
troit informed through daily logs and 
weekly progress reports. My boss pro- 

vided reassuring supervision and advice 
on major ])rol)lems by means of jieriodic 
visits to the job." 

The building was completed last 
August. Understandably. Paul thinks of 
it as his "two-raillion-doilar baby." 

"An assignment like this really gives 
you a feeling of accomplishment," Paul 
says. "It provides invaluable experience

Professor's Biography 
Of Minor Poet Lauded 

By Professor R. J. Allen 
Chairman — Dept. of English 

No event of eighteenth-century 
Scottish history is more romantic- 
ally exciting than the Jacobite ris- 
ing of 1745 under Bonnie Prince 
Charlie, and none is more inter- 
esting to the social historian than 
the emergency of Edinburgh as 
one of the intellectual capitals of 
Europe. Each of these events re- 
ceives its share of attention in 
Williams Professor N. S. Bush- 
nell's "William Hamilton of Ban- 
gour: Poet and Jacobite". 

The subject of Professor Bush- 
nell's literary biography was e- 

Jacobs Defends 
Labor's Demands 

Samuel Jacobs, representative 
for the United Auto Workers in 
Washington, D. C, presented la- 
bor's views on the contemporary 
economic situation in a lecture 
Monday night. 

Jacobs pointed out that as a 
representative of organized labor 
his principle consideration in 
viewing the economic situation was 
to see how the prevailing condi- 
tions affected the employment 

The main point of his lecture 
was that labor's demands for in- 
creased wages have been more 
than compensated by the increase 
of industrial productivity. He also 
pointed out that this increased 
ability to produce must be match- 
ed by a commensurate ability to 
purchase this production. 

Following the lecture there was 
an informal discussion period dur- 
ing which Jacobs was questioned 
in relation to the new contract 
proposed by Walter Reuther, head 
of the U. A. W., in relation to the 
contract negotiations with Gen- 
eral Motors. 

qually at home in the literary and 
in the social world of Edinburgh, 
but it was as a poet that he made 
his permanent reputation. Much 
of his poetry was imitative of clas- 
sical authors or of the vers de so- 
ciete which charmed London dur- 
ing the lifetime of Prior and Gay. 
By allying himself, however, with 
Alan Ramsay and the rising group 
of Scottish poets, Hamilton of 
Bangour also contributed to a 
movement which gave him more 
chance to show his originality, the 
revival of the Scottish popular 

While disclaiming any Intention 
of retelling the tale of the Jacob- 
ite rising of 1745, Professor Bush- 
nell manages, in the chapters en- 
titled "The Campaign and the 
Heather" and "Exiles," to provide 
an engrossing reconstruction of 
the rising and its aftermath as It 
must have looked to Hamilton. Al- 
though the source materials for 
this part of the poet's life are by 
no means rich, his biographer has 
made the most of them. As In 
other parts of the book, there is 
a skillful merging of the man and 
world in which he lived.

match last Saturday. 

W'ally Matt, Kiihrt Wienecke, Captain |ini Ilntchiiison and 
Sti've Lewis all pinned their opjionents to lead the assnlt for Wil- 
liams. Openiiii; the match, Nlatt's (123) |)in eanie oNt-r Henry 
Tansand at (115 in the third jjcriod on u half-nelson and crotch. 

In the 137 pound class Wienecke 

stopped Wesleyan's Huckins after 
3.47 minutes in the second period 
on a cradle. 

Captain Hutchinson needed on- 
ly 2.35 minutes of the first period 
to finish off Mark Levine. The 
pinning combination was a half- 
nelson and crotch. Also using a 
half-nelson and crotch, Lewis 
pinned Lud Probst in 8.07 minutes 
in the third period. 

Stu Smith, Pete Carney and 
Bob Hatcher also turned in vic- 
tories for the Eph matmen. Smith, 
wrestling at 130 pounds, complete 
ly dominated Harlan Crider. On 
top for the entire match, he went 
on to win, 11-1. 177 pound Carney 
.scored on two take-downs and a 
reversal to outpoint Elliot Snow, 
7-4. Ready to wrestle for the first 
time since dislocating his elbow 
two months ago in the first match 
of the season. Hatcher (unlimited) 
won by default over injured Char- 
ley Smith. Denny Mitchell at 167 
suffered Williams only defeat, as 
he was decisioned by Wesleyan's 
Tom Sorenson, 7-3. 

The grapplers now have the 
tougher leg of the Little Three 
Championship, Wesleyan having 
defeated Amherst, whom the Ephs 
play this Saturday. The team rec- 
ord is now 3-1-1, having also 
beaten Tufts and Coast Guard, 
lost to Springfield and tied Col- 
gate. The varsity grapplers cur- 
rently have two undefeated men, 
Captain Jim Hutchinson and 
Kuhrt Wienecke.

Freshman Grapplers 
Overcome Wesleyan 

Behind 11-12, going Into the 
final match, the freshman wrest- 
ling team gained a 14-12 win over 
Wesleyan on Art Waltman's vic- 

Co-captains Skip Chase and Jack 
Staples as well as Dean Howard 
also chalked up wins for the Ephs. 
Howard won on a forfeit when the 
Cardinals did not have anyone to 
wrestle at 123 pounds. Netting five 
points, this forfeit provided the 
margin of victory, since each team 
won four matches and there were 
no pins. 

Waltman beat his opponent in 
the unlimited class by a 6-1 score. 
At 147, Chase, with a takedown 
and an escape decisioned Lou Lar- 
rey, 3-2. Staples outpointed Dave 
Gorden, 6-2, in the 167 pound 

Casualties for Williams were 
Hank Riefle, Bob Kaplan, Bill 
Penny and Walt Noland. Riefle 
lost his 130 pound match, 4-1, 
while Kaplan at 137 was outpoint- 
ed, 5-1, by Al Williams. In a much 
closer match than the score indi- 
cates, Wesleyan's Jack Richards 
stopped Penny (157), 6-1. 

Skaters Split In 
Weekend Hockey 
With Army, Wes 

The Williams varsity hockey 
team .split a pair of Purple Key 
Weekend games at Williamstown, 
losing to Army 8-2 and defeating 
Wesleyan 7-2. 

The Cadets led by Ted Crowley's 
two goals, completely overpowered 
an ineffective and almost helpless 
Williams six on Friday. The Eph- 
men who on numerous occasions 
had a one and sometimes a two 
man advantage were unable to get 
their power play into operation. 

The highlight of the game came 
late in the final period when Pete 
Dawkins, Army detenseman, en- 
gaged in a wild fist fight with 
junior Mike Grant. The brawl cli- 
maxed an afternoon of rough 

Wesleyan Outskated 

A complete reversal occurred 
Saturday as Williams easily rout- 
ed Wesleyan 7-2 in an informal 
game. The Cardinals are not a 
regular college team but a club 
organized at Wesleyan five years 

Dave Cook .scored two goals for 
the winners wliile Woody Burgert 
notched three assists to his credit 
for ti'.e afternoon's point leader. 

Barry Bloom flipped both Wes- 
leyan goals into the cage in the 
third period. 

Williams now has a record of 7- 
10-1 with two games against A. I. 
C. and Amherst remaining.

ed no handicap for the Ephs on 
Saturday as they won all nine 
matches from an inferior foe. Cap- 
tain Ollie Stafford barely worked

The big win for the squash team 
came on Friday night when they

an easy time with McMullin, win- 
ning 15-8, 15-7, 15-2. Bowen and

ant victories to help set the season 
record at 5-3.

Biography . . . 

Edinburgh and its aixihives, shows 
itself in many ways. The canon of 
Hamilton's works is as accurately 
established as It is likely ever to 
be. New light is thrown on a 
number of the literary and social 
figures who played so large a part 
in the gregarious poet's life. 

In addition, one is grateful for 
the discrimination and critical 
tact with which the book is writ- 
ten. Hamilton was a minor poet 
and Professor Bushnell is content 
to present him as a minor poet, 
never apologizing for him and 
never hesitating to disagree with 
critics who have overpraised him 
out of national pride or a fond- 
ness for the literary tradition to 
which he belonged.

sultant for a discussion on how the 
hife'h schools can meet the needs 
of the gifted students through 
programs of college-level quality. 
At Tuesday's meeting, Keller as 
analyst will introduce the discus- 
sion on the responsibility of the 
college or university to these gifted 
students. He will attempt to give 
some answers in a prepared 


Keller points out that the re- 
sponsibility of the college begins 
before the students enter college 
and continues after their gradua- 
tion. The college should work with 
both the secondary schools and 
the graduate .schools for "articula- 
tion", the joining together of these 
levels of education so that the 
"gears mesh." The overall purpose 
of this plan is to prevent duplica- 
tion in the student's education. 

In addition, Keller explains, 
many colleges have duplication in 
their freshman . and sophomore 
years. Williams '^as made strides 
away from this situation. 

Ike's Proposals 

The meeting is sponsored by the 
Association for Higher Education, 
a department of the National Ed- 
ucation Association (NEA). The 
various sessions will discuss Pre- 
sident Eisenhower's recent pro- 
posals to Congress about educa- 
tion. Participants will consider in- 
creased opportun'ties for students, 
innovations in administration, im- 
provement in teaching methods, 
and new developments in curricu-

Volumes On Education 

"We are trying to span a ehasni between the two levels 
too lonjr a time." 

These are the words of Leno,\ (Mass.) school superintendent Hiram Battey in rcfenmce to 
the work of a few Williams faculty members who are pioneerinf^ in the destruction of the^^ieepskiu 
ciutain" which has so long existed between seconLJary anil higher educational institutions. 

I Taking the view that education ougiit to be a continuous, un- 

I broken process, Williams professors ha\e been working with local 
I secondary school educators to (1) promote greater understanding 
i bi'tween the two faculty groups, and (2) achieve greater continuity 
oi curricula between the two levels of education. 

Eight laciilty men have been most active in tiic program, in-

Professor C. Frederick Rudolph, Jr. '42 (M.A. 1949; Ph.D. 
1953 Yale), of the history department, will begin research at the 
Library of Congress next year for a projected, multi-volume historv 
of higher education in the United States. Rudolph was awaided a 
Guggenheim Fellowship last year 
for this purpose. 

For many years, his major in- 
terest has been cultural and social 
history. "Wlien you get to gradu- 
ate school, you have to write a 
dissertation. Nobody really knew 
what the old Mark Hopkins adage 
meant," he says, "and I decided to 
find out." 

The result was a complete ^study 
of Mark Hopkins' influence oiMhe 
development of Williams, a study 
which won two major prizes for 
contribution to historical know- 
ledge in 1953. 

Rudolph condensed the paper 
by half ("It was improved on the 
whole") for publication as "Mark 
Hopkins and the Log" by the Yale 
University Press in 1956. The book 
is now in its second printing. 
Wider Horizons 

His new study, which will re- 
quire several years work, is to be 
of a similar character, but it will 
show the development of all types 
of colleges and universities. "Of 
course, it won't have one man to 
hang everything on. I'm not going 
to do much more with Williams 
history, except with its influence 
on the whole (development of 
higher education)." 

"If you can't have discussion 
teaching and honors programs, 
then there's not much social or 
economic excuse for the small col- 

college instructional methods for I lege. I like teaching small sections 
high schools. I of alert and dedicated students. 


"not in a tree-planting mood" 

My emphasis is on getting the stu- 
dents to think — if they expect to 
be told what to think, then they 
deserve to be disappointed. Teach-

learn them. What happens to the 
student's mind in the presence of 
facts is the main thing."

New CC Members Offer Opinions 
On Council Responsibilities, Issues 

In interviews this week with new 
College Council members and of- 
ficers, the RECORD was able to 
find indications of student gov- 
ernment's position at Williams and 
the direction It plans to take in 
the Immediate future. 

Crucial Year Ahead 

New CC president Jack Hyland, 
Junior Class President Len Grey, 
representative Rich Moe '59, and 
Sophomore Class Secretary Al 
Martin all felt that this was a 
crucial year for the College Coun- 
cil. If the Council runs Into trou- 
ble under Its Increasing responsi- 
bilities, a change In structure 
might result. Grey commented 
that "if we fall on the job of tak- 
ing over the SAC, there may be 
a call for change to which the 
Council win have to respond." 

8ophom%re representative Bob 
Rorke and Junior Moe commented 

that (as Rorke put it), "after all, 
the College Council is only five 
years old." A possible change 
might be a shift in power to the 
Social Council. Most persons an- 
swered favorably to the question 
of respect for Social Council op- 
inions. Taking Issue with the pro- 
position, however, was President 
Hyland who thought that the CC 
was more representative because It 
was composed of college officers. 
Year's Agenda 

The immediate business of the 
CC was outlined by Hyland. In 
addition to the traditional rushing 
work, the Council will attempt to 
recoup losses on the defunct Com- 
munications System, will create a 
new committee for Houseparties, 
will take over SAC duties and will 
study further voting changes in 
class elections. 

Opinions Conflict 

On general topics of college Is- 

sues, the RECORD was able to 
collect some interesting comments. 

Len Grey: "There is perhaps too 
much 'logism' at Williams. The 
college is too wrapped up in the 
idea of Mark Hopkins and his log 
— too much log and no limbs to 
crawl out on." Grey added, "the 
danger to student government 
comes when the Council starts 
creating issues." 

Al Martin: "I feel that in the 
future, the CC should create the 
issues Instead of getting them 
when they're at a crucial point." 

Palmer White: "Many top men 
in the class don't run in class elec- 
tions because they fear the ridi- 
cule or stigma attached to class 

Jack Hyland: "The large turn- 
over In class offices this year is 
not very unusual. Many guys feel 
that they've been In politics and 
want to do something else."

Lead Academic Race 

The Non-affiliates and 
Delta Chi received top academic 
standing among the sixteen social 
groups for the first semester. They 
had composite averages of 7.8 and 
7.6, respectively. 

The all-college average includ- 
ing the freshman grades was 6.5, 
showing an overall drop of .1 from 
last year's college average. 

Theta Delt 

Thotq r>pU "'as fnllowed by the 
Zete and Beta Houses. Theta Delt 
rose from third, Zete from sixth, 
while Beta fell from second place. 
The four leaders were followed by 
Phi Sig, Chi Psi, St. A., Delta Phi, 
and Sig Phi. 

There has been roughly a 14 per 
cent decline since last semester in 
the number of students on Dean's 
List. The freshmen showed the 
greatest decline with a 12 per cent 
drop, only 10.9 per cent of the 
class receiving honors grades. 

The movement began last Oc- 
tober when 45 educators from fif- 
teen local secondary schools con- 
vened with an equal number of 
Williams faculty members. The 
occasion was a visit by Frank

yixHiams Granted 
Gift For Science 

Williams College was awarded 
$41,600 on Feb. 19, by the National 
Science Foundation. The grant 
will enable the college to maintain 
a summer course for college and 
junior-college teachers of biology. 
The course will be supervised by 
Professor of Biology Samuel A. 

The original idea for this course 
came from a committee of the Am- 
erican Society of Zoologists, of 
which committee Matthews is a 
member. The purpose of the 
course, Matthews indicated, is to 
provide continued opportunity for 
advanced study in the fields of 
embryology and cytogenetics. 


Progress in these areas, Mat- 
thews said, is so swift that the 
average college teacher does not 
have a chance to keep up with 
them. This course will enable them 
to catch up in those fields. It will 
be taught by a staff of eleven spe- 
cialists from the American Society 
of Zoologists. 

Altogether, over 400 grants were 
made by the National Science 
Foundation, Including grants of 
$15,000 to Amherst and $8000 to 

Entrance Examination Board. 

Three weeks ago seven Pittsfield 
secondary school officials met with 
a group of college faculty for dis- 
cussion and dinner. They discus- 
sed college and school curricula in 
English, history, science, mathe- 
matics, and foreign languages. 
There have been several other 
meetings on a similar scale. 

A Beginning 

Although the strides taken thus 
far might seem relatively insig- 
nificant in themselves, the par- 
ticipants feel that they have es- 
tablished a firm groundwork for 
future local cooperation, and that 
they have set a precedent in the 
field of education which may even- 
tually become nationwide. 

Said Superintendent Battey; "It 
is most refreshing and extremely 
helpful to find a college that is 
willing to have its faculty devote 
their time to problems of the sec- 
ondary school." 

woe Selects Secor 
President For 1958 

George Secor '59, was elected 
president of the Williams Outing 
Club Wednesday night. Secor re- 
places Sandy Fetter '58. 

Taking over the duties of sec- 
retary-treasurer is Jack Foster '59. 
John Palmer '59, was elected vice- 
president In charge of the winter 
sports division; vice-president 
Nick Smith '59, will head winter 
carnival; Bob Piatt '59, is vice- 
president directing the cabin and 
trails division. 

Ski Exchange 

Ski Coach Ralph Townsend will 
continue to advise the WOC for a 
second year. The new officers 
plan to expand the present PT 
hiking and skiing programs. The 
six trails on the surrounding 
mountains have become increas- 
ingly popular as a result of this 
program. The WOC plans to or- 
ganize camping trips to the cabins 
on Berlin and Greylock moun- 
tains this spring. Maps of nearby 
hunting and fishing areas are now 
available to interested students. 

Next fall the Outing Club plans 
to organize a ski equipment ex-

be able to purchase second-hand

not the most potent in New England, but are 
they as bad as they looked this weekend? No. If 
we are going to try to get athletes to come to

when our opponents are somewhat less formid- 
able. Granted, Williams is our typical small col- 
lege adversary, but this year they happen to be 
tyjiically powerful in everything. 

If we had scheduled the weekend when we 
plaved teams with which we at least had a fair 
chance, the sub-frosh athletes would have seeii 
good games, and maybe a few of them would 
iiave been impressed enough to come back next

By Bill Edgar 

The problem last Monday in the crowded gymnasium of 
Williamstown's Walter G. Mitchell School was one of individual 
vs. eolk'ctive interest. It was solved by an extraordinary political 
process— the New England town meeting, 

The problem arose in two ways. 

Eirst of all, Abraham Standler— a young swimming jiool su- 
|)ervis()r-wanted to build a restamant. He owned land in South 
Willianistown, but if a restaurant were built on it, the land would 
have to be rezoned. Now a residc-nce distiiet, it woidd have to 
become a business and industrial district. 

S|)ot zoning— the transformation of Standler's projierty alone 
into a non-residence district— would have been illegal, The rezon- 
ing then, would have affected his neighbors' ])roperty too. 

"I'm just one httle single man," he said, "who wants to make 
a living and I'd like the town to voti' lor it." He was api^lauded. 

The town planning; board aigued that new business would 
benefit Willianistown. 

Infringement on Right 

Then one of Standler's neighbor's spoke— iMiglish Professor 
Nelson S. Bushnell. He argued that rezoning would be "a direct 
hifringement on the rights of the residents of the area." Ik; had 
mo\ed to South Williainstowii as jiart of "a new progressive move 
toward rural living." Rezoning the area as a hnsinss district would 
"destroy this )K'culiar advantage Willianistown has." 

The problem: individual Standler's interests vs, the colli'ctive 
interests of his ni'ighbors. It was solved, and Standler's restaurant 
was defeated by a vote of the town. 

Votes in a town meeting are usually by acclamation, except 
when contested or when the vote is crucial. In the latter case, the 
citizemy stands and is coimted-first those for a motion, then 
those against. The chance to stretch legs, to talk and mill aiound, 
is welcomed. 

The second case in which the jiroblem aiose was a more con- 
troversial one, for it affected the pocket-books of the whole town. 

The White Oaks section of Williamstown wanted sitlcwalks 
on their sticets, to )irotect the li\es of children going to and fioin 
the Hroad Brook School. 

To ^ave Someone V.rief 

Men and women from White Oaks pleaded support "to help 
protect o\u- children." Tliev were perfectly willing to give a few 
feet ol lawn, a shrub, evt'u a tree "to sa\f someone grief," Yet the 
collecti\'e will was stronger, Eacetl with a tax-rise, citizens from 
othei- sections ot town argued that a new school or an improved 
sewei- system was more ini|)ortant if money was to be spent, .\ 
vote was taken. .Again the interests of the majority were upheld. 

Tln> most important vote of die long evening- affecting the 
whole town— was the ]iassing of dii' largest budget in Williams- 
town history (o\'er .$1 million). Items ranged from the police de- 
]iartment to new e(|ui|)ment for the cemetery, from highway main- 
tenance to Memorial Day Ob.servance and poison ivy control.

Squashmen Beat 
Dartmouth, 6-3; 
Stafford Defeated 

In an extremely well-played 
match, the Williams varsity 
squash team took the measure of 
a rough Dartmouth squad 6-3 at 
Hanover Tuesday. This victory 
gives the squashmen a 6-3 record 
to date with only the Amherst and 
Intercollegiate matches remaining 
to be played. 

The squad came through despite 
the lo.sses of both Gregg Tobin and 
Captain OUie Stafford. Stafford 
dropped his fourth match of the 
year and second straight, losing 
to Dartmouth's number one man, 
Hoehn, in five grueling games, 15- 
10, 15-8. 12-15, 7-15, and 16-15. 

Tobin also went down slugging, 
losing his match in five games Il- 
ls, 15-9, 15-13, 11-15, and 15-13. 
Eph Rog Southall won a five-game 
slugfest from his opponent 17-16, 
17-18, 12-15, 15-12, and 15-10. In 
a four game match, Tom Shulman 
beat the man who had beaten him 
in four games last year. The score 
was 15-10, 15-12, 9-15, and 15-10, 

Pete Beckwith, Bill Weaver, and 
Clnis Shaefer, won four game 
matches, while Junior Ernie 
Pleischman whipped his adversary

Freshman Squash 

The Eph Squash team 
dropped an 8-1 verdict to Deer- 
field on Wednesday. It was an 
improvement over the 9-0 drub- 
bing Deerfield inflicted earlier 
this year. Fred Kasten, number 
seven singles, provided the only 
Williams victory. 

The R. P. I. Engineers overcame 
a two point half time deficit to 
hand the varsity basketball team 
a 55-45 defeat Tuesday in Troy. 
The Ephs were unable to stop a 
second half rally by the Engineers 
who are lieaded for the post-sea- 
■son N. C. A. A. small college bas- 
ketball tournament. Bill Hedeman 
was high scorer in the game with 
19 points while Ellie Hantho led 
R. P. I. with 18. 

Ephs Gain Lead 

The very tight first half saw 
the Purple gain a slight advantage 
which they managed to maintain 
for a 27-25 half time lead. The 
Ephs worked the ball steadily in 
the low-scoring first half. The En- 
gineers came back, however, to 
outscore the visitors by five points 
in the third period, gaining a lead 
which they held throughout the 
final quarter. The game was tight 
all the way, with R. P. I. breaking 
a Williams press in the final min- 
utes to gain their ten point mar- 
gin of victory. 

Williams' high-scoring center 
Geoff Morton was able to collect 
only 9 point.s against the R, P. I. 
defense; Hedeman was the only 
Eph scoring in double figures. The 
Engineers' attack was sparked by 
Hantho's scoring.

Having defeated Wesleyan last 
Saturday, the varsity swimming 
team will compete for the Little 
Three championship against Am-

team this year. 

Freshmen Down RPI 

Scoring 33 points in the third 
quarter, the Williams freshman 
basketball team defeated RPI 91- 
53 Tuesday night at Troy. 

The score was 36-28 at half- 
time as the Engineers managed 
to stay even with the Ephs for 
most of the period. The second 
half was a different story; Wil- 
liams exploded for 13 straight 
points to go into a commanding 

Continuing the torrid pace in 
the last quarter, the Ephs increas- 
ed their lead to 40 points, coasting 
to their third victory in the last 
four outings. Bob Montgomery and 
Sam Weaver led the scoring for 
Williams with 24 and 18 points 

The race of this meet promises 
to be the 100 yard butterfly be- 
tween Bill Jones, who holds the 
Amherst College record, and Bob 
Severance, who holds the same 
record for Williams. 

Captained by Buck Robinson and 
Neil Devaney, the freshmen will 
be gunning for their second 
championship. They too will go 
into the meet boasting a victory 
over Wesleyan. 


Also at Amherst will be the 
closing game between the Jeff and 
Williams basketball teams. Tlie 
two clubs met on the Eph floor 
two weeks ago, a game in which 
Williams won an upset victory 64- 

The Eph frosh, who hold a 5-4 
record, will face the Amherst 
freshmen for the Little Three title 
in a preliminary game. 


In a match at Williamstown, 
Coach Jim Ostendarp's wrestling 
squad will meet the Jeff team. Led 
by captain Jim Hutchiason, the 
Ephs crushed Wesleyan 31-3 last 
Saturday. The best match should 
be the 137 lb. clash between Jeff 
captain Dick Danielson and the 
Ephs' Kuhrt Wienecke. 

Pete DeLisser's freshmen are in 
for a rough contest Saturday. Both 
teams have defeated Wesleyan, but 
the Amherst club turned the trick 
by a more decisive score. 


The varsity squash team will 
attempt to make it three Little 
Three titles in a row on Saturday. 
Playing No. 1, captain Ollie Staf- 
ford of Williams will meet cap- 
tain Dave Hicks of Amherst. Staf- 
ford is favored. 

The Williams-Amherst fresh- 
man match on the same day will 
decide the Frosh Little Three title. 
The Ephmen won last year and 
are favored again this season.

JA Committee Begins 
Sophomore Selections 

Thirty so|)lionioies will soon be clioseii to serve as next year's 
Junior Advisors. Their ap|)()intments will be made known by the 
nine man Selection (Jonnnittee shortly before spring vacation. The 
committee is composed ot Jack Love, chairman, vice-president of 
last year's JAs, Larry Nilsen past president of the CC, Ted Wynne, 
Charles Gilchrist and Sandy Pet 

Rudolph . . . 

ter members at large from the 
senior class, plus Jerry Rardin and 
Woody Burgert, president and 
vice-president of the present JAs, 
and Steve Saunders and Len Grey 
from the junior class. The mem- 
bers-at-large are chosen by the 
president of the Junior Advisors 
and the Dean of Freshmen. The 
Dean, Rev. William G. Cole, serves 
as advisor to the committee. 

Committee Work 

Information forms on candidates 
have been distributed to the house 
presidents. Applicants are usually 
requested to submit a precis of 
their reasons for wanting to serve 
as Junior Advisors. 

The committee meets frequently 
and will eventually go over every 
applicant from the sophomore 
class several times. In addition to 
personal knowledge, they use the 
recommendations of faculty mem- 
bers and house presidents. Also, 
at the end of last year, the Jun- 
ior Advisors were asked, for the 
first time, to rate the freshmen 
in their entries as potential JA 

Jack Love, chairman, pointed 
out in a RECORD interview Wed- 
nesday night that the two most 
important qualifications were pro- 
bably willingness to assume re- 
sponsibility, and academic maturi- 
ty. He added that no concrete 
qualifications could be establish- 
ed due to the broad nature of a 
Junior Advisor's functions. 

He added that the committee, 
on which he has served for two 
years, "is probably the toughest job 
I've had at Williams." 

Wydick To Head SC; 
Cites New Proposals 

Dick Wydick '59, was elected 
president of the Social Council 
Tuesday at a meeting which elev- 
en of the fifteen house presidents 
or their representatives attended. 
Pete Willmott '59, was chosen sec- 
I'etary- treasurer. 

In a statement released after 
the meeting, Wydick, who is pre- 
sident of Beta Theta Pi, said, "We 
hope to make the Social Council 
a positive organization promoting 
the ideals of the academic com- 
munity of which the fraternities 
are a part." 

"In the past," he went on, "the 
social council's main function was 
to defend the fraternities. Our job, 
as I see it, is to make the frater- 
nities the collective sponsors of 
an academic and social atmos- 
phere in keeping with our intellec- 
tual society." 

Concrete Proposals 

As concrete proposals to further 
this aim, Wydick cited the con- 
tinuation of lectures like the Bax- 
ter series and an Initiation week 
oriented more toward "help" ra- 
ther than "hell". 

Wydick also expressed the hope 
that the Social Council would set 
up a housepajrty committee to 
oversee social weekends In con- 
junction with a similar committee 
proposed for the College Council. 

"After all," he remarked, "the 
fraternities are the ones who al- 
ways complain about bad house- 
parties. It should be their respon- 
sibility to see that we have good

Williams Takes Five Little Three Titles 

Ephmen Dominate 
7 Of 10 Contests 

By Sam Farkhlll 

Five Little Three titles were gar- 
nered by Williams winter athletic 
teams last Saturday as Ephmen 
dominated seven of ten contests 
staged with their traditional ri- 
val, Amherst. 

The varsity basketball team was 
unable to repeat its earlier victory 
in Lasell gym but still tied with 
the Jeffs for Little Three honors. 
In addition to varsity baslcetball 
the only other Williams teams to 
.succumb were the freshman squash 
and wrestling squads. Although not 
competing for titles the freshman 
and varsity hockey teams both 
edged their opponents in contests 
on the Orr rink. 

In Williamstown the varsity I 
squash and wrestling teams beat ' 
the Amherst representatives by de- 
cisive scores, losing only one in- ' 
dividual contest in each match. ! 

The varsity swimmers walked 
off with top honors in the Little 
Three by gaining a ten point mar- : 
gin over the Jeffs while the I 
freshmen sunk their opposition 
53-20. Tliree records fell in the 
two meets, one Williams freshman ; 
record and two Amherst pool rec- 

The varsity hockey team check- 
ed the Amherst sextet in a game 
which saw a total of fourteen goals 
registered, to avenge their 2-1 de- 
feat in Williamstown, February 8. 
The Freshmen emulated the var- 
sity win by slipping past the Jeff 
yearlings 4-3. 

The combined total for the past 
two weekends of Little Three com- 
petition gives Williams the out- 
standing record of sixteen vic- 
tories in nineteen events.

Panel Lr^es Federal 
Action For Recession 

"The recession will extend to 
the middle of next year unless the 
government steps in." said Dick 
Attiyeh '58, in the Student Union 
Committee's fourth colloquium 
held Thursday night in the Rath- 

Attiyeh .served as ..part of a 
panel composed of Professors Em- 
ile Despres and Kermit Gordon of 
the economics department and 
Don Conklin '58. The panel had as 
its topic, "What's Happening to

most severe of the three post-war 
recessions. Unemployment is the 
highest since the war. He attri- 

Seniors Have Choice 
In Military Obligation 

By Toby Smith 

Seniors graduating this June 
will have a number of possible 
choices open to them with regard 
to fulfilling their military obliga- 
tion. The recently changed 'six 
month' programs will probably be 
the most popular. 

Henry N. Plynt, Jr., Director of 
Student Aid, outlined in detail the 
present status of the draft and 
enlistment opportunities. As of 
late 1957 the draft quota per 
month was upped from 7.000 to 
the present 13,000. "Actually," 
Plynt commented, "this is still a 
very low number." The present 
average draft age has risen to 22 
and one-half yrs. 

In terms of "who will be called 
next", Flynt noted that local draft 
boards are placing married men 
on the bottom of their priority 
lists and that unless unusual con- 
ditions arise, most Williams grad- 
uates in this category can feel 
fairly secure. 

Term of Service 

The term of service for those 
who are drafted is two years with 
three years or longer for those who 
enlist. There are numerous advan- 
tages, however, connected with en- 
listment. There is also "voluntary 
draft" which means that one asks 
to be called up in the next quota 
of his Draft Board. 

The Military Service Act of 1955 
permits all branches of the armed 
forces to accept six months active 
duty enlistments. Such a program 
means in addition, however, 5 and 
one-half years of active reserve 
duty entailing 48 weekly reserve 
meetings per year plus 2 weeks of 
active duty each summer. 

The Army's program is open for 
enlistment all year round, admit- 
ting approximately 20,000 per year 
currently. Army Reserve Head- 
quarters in Pittsfield, for instance, 
can admit an average of three per 
month. The Boston Marine Re- 
serve District admits two a month. 
For the last half of 1957, the Ar- 
my six month quota was 11,900,

buted most of the fall-off in busi- 
ness to a decline in inventory in- 

Attiyeh expressed concern over 
the lack of technical innovations 
on the horizon, but he believed 
certain built-in stabilizers (e. g. 
unemployment benefits) would 
help to keep consumption up. 

Conklin drew a chuckle from 
the audience with his slightly 
slanted political views concerning 
the government's monetary and 
fiscal policies. He said he expected 
a tax cut and additional spending 
by the government in the near fu- 

Social Problems 

Despres offered the view that 
our society has to face certain 
problems in the near future such 
as discrimination and defense. He 
added to two questions the 
clioice that America has to make 
of the goal toward which we will 
direct our tremendous wealth. 

Further comments by the Ec- 
onomics Department chairman re- 
vealed his belief that the Ameri- 
cane economy had been on the 
downhill ever since 1955 when the 
Administration introduced certain 
tax benefits connected with in- 
vestment in industrial expansion. 
The current problem of overpro- 
duction has resulted. 

Entry-Reps Chosen 

The new Freshman Council 
which met last week to outline 
plans included officers Bob 
Montgomery (president), Keck 
Jones (sec-treas), and Tom Fox 
(CO rep). New entry represen- 
tatives are: E. Widmer, D. 
Bradlet, G. Reath, J. Simons, 
J. Kohn, J. Staples (Sage); D. 
Verville, D. Beckler, W. Floyd. 
T. Allen, B. Zeiders, Mayer 
(Williams); P. Stanton, M. 
Dlvely (Lehman). 

Holyoke Resolves 
Liberal Arts Aid 

The Mount Holyoke chapter of 
the American Association of Uni- 
versity Professors has sent to Mas- 
sachusetts Senators Leverett Sal- 
tonstall and John Kennedy a re- 
solution calling for more liberal 
arts programs in U. S. aid to edu- 

The resolution warned against 
the lack of flexibility of "narrow- 
ly educated specialists ... in an era 
of swift scientific advancement 
and social change." It questions 
the wisdom of an exclusive stress 
on science and mathematics in 
education, and asked for inclusion 
of liberal arts colleges as well as 
technological institutions in the 
federal program for education. 
"Free People Live Freely" 

David J. Holden, associate pro- 
fessor of music at Mt. Holyoke, 
drafted the resolution. Copies have 
been sent to college and university 
chapter presidents of the AAUP, 
and the resolution has been re- 
ferred to the resolutions committee 
of the AAUP. 

It asks that any plans for fed- 
eral aid to education "be widened 
to embrace provisions for these 
and for the study of all other 
liberal subjects which teach a free 
people to live freely in a free so- 

response to three other proposals 
included in a questionnaire which 
had been submitted to the faculty 
in conjunction with the Gargoyle 

Gargoyle evaluated the results 
to proposals concerning: 1) a 
change to place "matters concern- 
ing 'plagarism' under the juris- 
diction of the Honor System," 2) 
"the problem of instructors giv- 
ing identical examinations (or 
parts of examinations) in succes- 
sive years and whether this was 
considered a violation of the spirit 
of the Honor System," 3) the 
question of whether copies of ex- 
aminations and hour tests should 
be collected at the end of an ex- 
amination, and 4> the right of 
teachers in 19-20 courses to give 
hour examinations which were 
one and one-half hours long. 

The report concluded that "its 
major concern" was the possibili- 
ty of extending the Honor Sys- 
tem to include plagiarism, which 
is currently judged by the faculty 
and Dean. The senior society sug- 
gested, regardless of the outcome 
of its plagiarism proposal, that 
teachers carefully explain, at the 
beginning of eacli term, the man- 
ner in which papers should be

Experimental Theater 
To Perform 'Volpone* 

The curtain of the Experimen-

the AMT opened last night for a 
three-day run of the first act of 
Ben Johnson's "Volpone." 

The first act of this 17th cen- 
tury comedy portrays the efforts 
of a lawyer, merchant and an old 
man (all represented as predatory 
birds) to extract money from Vol- 
pone (symbolized as a crafty box) 
and his servant. 

Under the direction of English 
Professor J. Clay Hunt, Tim Tully

Schroeder '58. play the money- 
seeking friends. 

By Ted Castle 

The College Council Monday de- 
feated a proposal that it recom- 
mend to the Junior Adviser Selec- 
tion Committee the choice of one 
J. A. from each fraternity. The 
pi-oposal, originally appearing last 
week in the RECORD, was de- 
feated 7-4, with one abstension. 

The Council instead expressed 
a vote of confidence in the prin- 
ciple of JA selection chiefly by 
the individual merit of candidates. 
The intention in this substitute 
measure was to give notice that the 
members recognize the practical 
functions of the Junior Advisers 
in the fraternity system as well as 
the desirability of allowing the 
committee complete freedom from 
official pressure in making their 
selections. The vote was eight af- 
firmative and five abstensions. 

Accompanying discussion on the 
JA questions was a debate on CC 
expressions of opinion. Dean Vin- 
cent M. Barnett, Jr.. said, "The 
CC can express an attitude on any 
subject that affects the welfare of 
the College as a whole." The mem- 
bers agreed informally. The Dean 
indicated that questioning CC jur- 

isdiction was an attempt to "dodge 
a tough issue."

The Garj^oyle proposal to iiicliiclc" ])laj;;iarisin 
within the jurisdiction ol tlic Honor System is a 
rather frrandiose attempt to make integrity an ob- 
lijratiou rather than a convenienee. 

The very word phigiarism", hke "immoral- 
ity" or "dishonesty", defies definition. 

Gargoyle's suggested inteipretation of the 
word— "to pass off as one's own tlie words, ideas, 
or work of another"— would be virtually inapplic- 
able to practical circiunstance. 

What undergraduate student could honestly 
state that he would not infringe upon "the words, 
ideas, or work of another" wlien tlie essence of his 
liberal education is the correlation of recommend- 
ed words and ideas with his indj\idual intellect? 

On the other hand, those whose intentions 
are dishonest would jDrobably sign the pledge and 
gain protection for their ijlagiarism from the as- 
sumption of imiocence which Gargoyle advances 
as an advantage of its )Dro]Dosal. 

Cheating on an examination is definite. Eith- 
er you do or you don't. The issue is immediate 
and clear-cut. The Honor System works because 
the individual is sure of his ground. 

Plagiarism, however, is indefinite. It admits 
to wide differences of inter]5retation. The Honor 
System would not work because there eoidd be 
no precise standards of judgment. 

The issue of academic integrity will always 
be a matter of personal discretion and, imfor- 
tunately, convenience. 


The very fact that the College Council dis- 
cussed the issue of fA selection at their Mon- 
day meeting was an affii'mativc action. 

Bringing the question of equal JA repre- 
sentation into the open gives even more incen- 
tive to the Selection Committee to chose a JA 
from every house. 

The Record regrets, however, that the Coun- 
cil took such an equivocal stand. 

Their "vote of confidence " on the principle 
of Junior Adviser selection chiefly by the incUvi- 
dual merit of candidates failed to meet the ]5ro- 
blem of an actual and (at present) imfair con- 
nection between Junior Advisers and rushing. 

At first Council members voiced doubt that 
the CC had any "constitutional right" to review 
the problem. 

Ne.xt they turned discussion of a straightfor- 
ward, une(|uivocal nro]50sal into a confused arti- 
culation of the ideals of the JA system. They felt, 
it seemed, that by denying the fact of a JA-rush- 
ing relationship they could make it non-existent. 

Finally they passed a vote of confidence 
which dodged the issue altogether. 

"New faces and new ideas" do not seem to 
destroy the continuity of timid conservatism. 

Obviously A Misconception 

B(/ Bill Areiid 

The letter addressed to the Record by Mr 
Benjamin C. Foster and Mr. Eugene J. Johnson, 
III, in criticism of my article of February 19, 1958 
bases its criticism on misinterpretations and mis- 
conceptions of my article. 

I write this article not to indulge in seman- 
tics with these two men but to clear the air con- 
cerning these misconceptions, and possibly to 
ferret out what these men feel is the real situa- 
tion at Wilhams. 

I was not denying any man's opinion as "va- 
lid" in my article, but termed the views pre- 
sented by the Princeton Seniors in the February 
17th issue of LIFE as "uncomplimentary" to 
Princeton or to any liberal education institution. 
1 recognize the validity of any man's opinion and 
1 hope that Messrs. Foster and Johnson, 111, re- 
cognize the validity of mine. 1 maintain that an 
attitude which considers this Princeton man 
"snobbish" is one which is valid, strong in deino- 
cratic America today, and more typical of the 
Williams undergraduates than some would de- 
sire to admit. 

Nowhere in my article did 1 state that con- 
ditions of discrimination no longer exist on the 
Williams campus. No one even remotely ac- 

quainted witli tlie fraterjiity system ou tliis cam- 
|)us would be foolish euouj^h to state that tlie 
conditions ol traternity selection are entirely 
democratic; 1 stated tliat tlie discrimination is- 
sue liad been "met and resolved '. Webster do- 
luies resolved as meaning "disentangled", "ex- 
plained", "reduced by analysis , or "determined 
upon , which is exactly what tlie Piiillips Report 
and President Baxters resultant letter did to tlic 
discrxiiiiiiatiou issue, and wliicli condition is many 
steps ahead of tlie present situation at Princeton. 
The claim tliat total opportunity has existed 
at Princeton is a tacit acceptance ot tlie "so|)liis- 
try ' so typical at Old Nassau, described by John 
AicNees in an aiticle in the Harvard Criiiisoii oi 
I'i'iday, I'ebruary 21: 

(One club gave bids to everyone, as 
iiiey do every year. ) Tiieretore m etfect 
every so|jlioinore got a bid . . . Therefore 
any Sopnomore wanting to join a club 
could nave . . . Therefore one-liuiidi"ed 
1 reter Messrs. I'oster and Jolmson, HI, to tliis 
article to compare Bicker at Princeton with Rush 
at WiUiains. liie obvious differences and advan- 
tages ill the Williams system as well as tlie dif- 
lerences iii student attitude at tlie two seiiools are 
dieii evident. 

1 postulate a iioriii which 1 believe to be 
characteristic of the largest number of tlie stu- 
dents at Williams College today. Nowhere do 1 
state that all Williams men must comply with 
this norm of behavior, but that a large number 
will indignantly defend then college agauist be- 
ing equated witli Pihiceton. 

1 would like to ask these gentlemen what 
opinions they believe do or should prevail on diis 
campus. Let us not veil our opinions with a fa- 
cade ol criticism ami logic based upon faulty as- 
sunipiiou and misconception. Do discrimination 
auu selectivity jjlay as large a role in fraternity 
membership today as they did tliirty years ago? 
Are Williams students becoming more tolerant 
and unselfish? Was total opportunity at Williams 
a sham, merely an attempt, or was it a stiong, 
concerted drive supported by the majority of tlie 

1 will recognize die validity of tliese gen- 
tlemen's o])inions but 1 cannot recognize die 
validity of their criticism because it is based on 
misconception. Such techniques can be termed 
"red-herring", designed to obscure the general 
meaning of my article. 

State your opinions. 1 would like to believe 
that if my requests were answered, my reward 
would be something more desirable than "smok-

Letters To The Editor 


To the RECoim: 

1 would like to comment briefly on the ar- 
ticle in your iiews]japer by Abdul Wohabe and 
the accompanying editorial. 

Mr. Wohabe's article is, as you say, "not a 
dispassionate analysis" of Arab nationalism. The 
obstacles to unity are real. One might ask Mr. 
Wohabe what he means by the "Arab peo]jle". 
Turks and Iranians do not speak Arabic, although 
they are Muslims; Lebanon is half Christian; 
Egypt looks back to the glories of a civilization 
far older than Islam. 

It would be a mistake, however, to brush a- 
side Mr. Wohabe's comments on the U.A.R. as 
mere cliches of a "nationalist religion", or to 
assume that internal diffrences will keep the 
Middle East conveniently divided. The history of 
the Middle East since 1799-the year Napoleon 
invaded Egypt— bears testimony to the power- 
ful impact of the longing for unity as a determ- 
ining factor in relations with the West. The aims 
may be "oversimplified", but no movement with 
any mass appeal can be expected to deal in the 
subtleties of a political science class at Williams. 

Are we afraid of unity in the Middle East? 
Will a unified Arab nation force us to make an 
"agonizing reappraisal" of our relations with Is- 
rael? These are the real c|uestions, and 1 think 
that our diplomats— and our newspaper editors- 
can spend their time more profitably if they 
stop trying to convince themselves and others 
that "it will never happen". Remember all those 
old British hands who said that Nasser would be 
unable to keep the Suez Canal in operation? Let 
us not repeat their mistake. 

Monroe Hawkins '54 

Editor's Note: Mr. Hawkins' point is well- 
made, hut it re-enforces the RECORD'S editorial. 
It does not eontradict it. 

Hardly "hru.^hinrr aside" Wohabe's comments 
on the U.A.R., we called them "disturbinfihi 
strong." The "nationalist religion" which Woha- 
be's article reflects, we said, "cannot he forgot- 
ten" by U. S. policymakers if they are to take 
effective action in this most dynamic area of tlie

They are the most decent and obliging of men, the makers of 
Marlboro, as anyone can tell from sainijling their product. Only

such flavor, such flip-top box. Thefilter works; the flavor pleases ;

Surely not I. 

JUeJicwe C^ be ^(Lt^ ! 

Today let us take up the science of medicine, which was in- 
vented in lO(if) l)y a Greek named Hippocrates. He .soon gathered 
around him a grou]) of devoted disciples whom he called 
"doctors." The rea.son he called tlieni "doctors" was that they 
spent all tlieir time sitting around the duck and shooting the 
breeze. In truth, there was little else for them to do because 
disease was not invented until 1477. 

.\fter that, doctors I lecame very busy, but it must l)e admitted 
that their knowledge of medicine was lamentably meagre. They 
knew only one tre.'itmont—a change of climate. For example, 
a French doctor would send all his patients to Switzerland. 
A Swiss doctor, on the other hand, would send all his patients 
to l'"ranee. By 1789 the entire population of France was living 
in Switzerland, and vice versa. This later became known as the 
Black Tom Explosion. 

Not until 1924 did medicine, as we know it, come into being. 
In that year in tlie little Bavarian village of Pago-Pago an 
elderly physician named Winko Sigafoos discovered the hot 
water bottle. He was, of course, burned as a witch, but his son 
T,ydia, disguised as a linotype, made his way to America where 
he invented the Mayo Brothers. 

Medicine, as it is taugiit at your very own college, can be 
divided rouglily into two classifications. There is internal medi- 
cine, which is the treatment of interns, and external medicine, 
which is the treatment of externs. 

Diseases also fall into two broad categories— chronic and 
acute. Chronic is, of course, inflammation of the chron, 
whicli can be mighty painful, lielieve you me ! Last summer ray 
cousin Haskell was stricken with a chron attack while he was 
out lacking up tinfoil, and it was months before the wretched 
boy could straighten u]). In fact, even after he was cured, 
Haskell continued to walk around lient over doul)le. This went 
on for several years liel'ore Dr. Caiigari, the lovable old country 
practitioner who treats lliiskell, discovered that Huakell had 
bis trousers buttoned to liis vest. 

Two years ago Ha.skell had Addison's (Addison, curi- 
ously enough, had Haskell's.) Poor Haskell catches everything 
tliat comes along. Lovable old Dr. Caiigari once said to him, 
"Son, I guess you are what they call a natural born catcher." 

"The joke is on you, Doc," replied Haskell. "I am a third 
ba.semen." He thereujion fell into such a fit of giggling that the 
doctor had to put him under sedation, where he is to this day. 

But I digress. We were discussing medicine. I have now told 
you all I can; the rest is up to you. Go over to your med school 
and poke around. Bring popcorn and watch an operation. X-ray 
each other. Contribute to the bone liiuik . . . And remember, 

medicine can be fun!

Meyers To Give 
Lecture On Logic 

Professor Gerald E. Meyers will 
discuss informal and formal logic 
in a lecture, "Logic and Reality", 
which will be given in the Biology 
lab Thursday. 

The lecture is the sixth in a 
series of eight lectures, sponsored 
by the Williams faculty. 

At present Meyers is working on 
a book concerned with aesthetics 
as seen from a philosophical 

Informal vs. Formal 

During his lecture Meyers will 
show that formal or mathematical 
logic cannot justify .statements a- 
bout reality whereas informal lo- 
gic is required. He will also make 
some comments on Professor 
Winch's lecture, "Some Constmcts 
in Physics." 

According to Meyers, "By re- 
freshing an interest in informal 
logic we will resurrect problems 
which formal logicians do not 
think are worth discussion."

Eph Hockey Defeats AlC, Amherst; 
Finish Season With 9-W-l Record 

By Joe Wheelock 

Six goals by the production 
line, Dave Cook, Rich Lombard 
and Dave Wood, led the scoring 
for Williams as the varsity hockey 
team outhustled the Amherst six 
Saturday to gain an 8-6 decision 
on the Orr rink. 

Cook opened the scoring at 0:28 
seconds of the first period on a 
feed from Al Erb and then dupli- 
cated the trick at 2:09, before 
Amherst could organize a rush. 
The Jeffs wasted little time in 
getting back in the game as Mc- 
Lean batted a rebound past goalie 
Denny Doyle. 

At 1:52 of the second period 
Amherst tied the score at 2-2 but 
Richie Lombard's first goal at 
2:59 gave Williams a leaf', it never 

Jim Fisher and Woody Burgert 
each registered to run the lead to 
5-2 before McLean added the sec- 
ond of his three goals. A goal by 
Shoctman made it 5-4 as the 
period ended. 

Two goals by Dave Wood and 
Lombard's second goal put the 
game on ice in the thii'd period 
despite McLean's third goal. 
A. I. C. Defeated 

In a Thursday game at Spring- 
field the Williams varsity hockey 
team emerged victorious over A. 
I. C. by a 5-0 score. 

DAVE WOOD, senior right wine,

with two goals against Amherst. 

DriscoU opened the scoring with 
an unassisted shot at 4:40 of the 
first period. He was followed by 
Lombard and Wood in the same 
stanza to bring the total to 3-0. 

The second period was scoreless. 
At 10:19 of the third period Lom- 
bard scored his second of the 
night. Cook came back eight 
minutes later to score his first 
goal and boost the lead to 5-0.

Last Minute Goal 
To Beat Amherst 

Last week the Freshman Hockey 
squad picked up two more wins to 
run their season's record to an 
impressive 6-1-1. They have one 
game remaining with Williston 

Thursday, Williams took a close 
3-2 decision from the A. I. C. frosh 
on a goal in a sudden death over- 
time by George Lowe with an as- j 
sisl by captain Larry Hawkins, j 
Two early goaLs were scored by 
Hawkins, and wing Larry Reine- 
man, before the AIC attack picked 
up in the second period to tie the 
game at 2-2. 

In their traditional encounter 
with Amherst Saturday the Eph i 
Frosh had to come from behind 
in the last ten minutes to win 4-3. 1 
A long shot from the blue line by 
John Whitney gave Williams an- 
other of their seven athletic wins 
over the weekend. 

After a goal by George Lowe 
early in the game Amherst opened 
up a 3-1 lead. Lowe and Reineman 
combined with a goal apiece to tie 
it up before Whitney's clincher 
with three and a half minutes left 
in the final period. Lowe ended a 
successful week with three goals. 

A win over Williston will com- 
plete the most successful Frosh 
season in recent years.

Bob Severance, and Alex Reeves 
set the pool record for that event. 
Alex Reeves also set an Amherst 
pool record by nipping teammate 
co-captain Bob Severance in the 
100 yard butterfly contest. 

Don Lum performed well for the 
Purple by taking two firsts. Lum 
won both the 220 yard freestyle 
and the 440 yard freestyle races. 
Tatem also tallied five points for 
the Ephs by winning the 200 yard 
backstroke contest. 

Coach Bob Muir's 6-1-1 record 
was marred only by a 45-45 tie 
with the University of Connecti-

Forecasting future promise, the 
Eph frosh swimming squad fin- 
ished a highly successful season 
Saturday by trouncing the Jeff 
freshmen 53-20 at Amherst. This 
win brought the team the Little 
Three championship. 

Once again the names to note 
were co-captains Buck Robinson, 
Neil Devaney, and Terry Allen. 
Breaking his own Williams fresh- 
man record, Robinson won the 100 
yard breaststroke event in 1:09.9. 
Robinson also beat teammate 
Mike Dively to win the 50 yard 
freestyle event. 

Terry Allen won the 200 yard 
freestyle race and Neil Devaney 
scored a first in the 100 yard free- 
style contest. In addition Bob 
Reeves dove superbly, amassing 
57.7 points. Jim Urbach, Dave

A Campus-to-Career Case History 

Roy Vaughn (left) discusses a central office power installation with Switchman R.F. Heider. 

"I like (and get) 'start-to-finish' 
engineering assignments" 

"When it comes to making a job inter- 
esting, I think the assignments a man 
gels are more important than the size 
of the project he's working on," says 
Roy Vaughn of Illinois Bell Telephone 
Com|)any. "I found that out soon after 
I gradualed. My first job was with an 
organization where the projects were big, 
but the individual engineering assign- 
ments lacked variety and scope. 

"After this experience I looked over 
power engineering opportunities in a 
number of companies. I joined Illinois 
Bell because it promised the most inter- 
esting and challenging work. That was 
three years ago. My work with IBT has 
everything that I was looking for. 

"My job is to engineer the power re- 
quirements for telephone central offices. 

The work never gets routine. One job 
may be for a new building, the next for 
expanding existing |)lant. And power 
needs vary tremendously from little rural 
dial ofTices serving a h:w hundred tele- 
phones, to big motroijolilan telephone 
plants serving hundreds of thousands. 

"But what I like best is that I generally 
handle the job from start to finish. I de- 
termine the operational and emergency 
power requirements of the facilities to 
be served, and order the equipment 
needed. And I'm usually on hand during 
installation to see the job through. 

"Not only does this kind of engineer- 
ing assigimicnt keep work interesting, 
but I find it is helping me become a 
better manager. And that improves my 
chances for advancement."

start as Brian, Leathers, Logic, 
and Hodges were defeated, all in 
less than five games. 

Bill Buck, playing at number 
five, lost his first two games, but 
came back to win his match and 
give Williams its first victory. 
Fred Kasten and Ronnie Pish won 
for Williams. The Fi-eshmen end-

Ephs Conquered 
By Sahrina Five; 
Little Three Tied 

By Jan Rozcndaal 

The Williams bid for undisputed 
Little Three basketball supremacy 
fell short Saturday when the Ephs 
dropped a 69-58 decision to Am- 
herst on the winners' court. Su- 
perior rebounding and the scoring 
of Bill Warren with 20 points en- 
abled the Jeffs to avenge their 
earlier loss to the Ephs at Wil- 

Morton Stopped 

The first half saw the Jeffs 
grab a ten point lead which they 
maintained through the second 
iialf of play to gain a tie for the 
Little Three championship. While 
the Amherst defense was holding 
Eph high scorer Jeff Morton to a 
lotal of only two points in the 
lirst half, the driving of Pete Jen- 
kins, the outside scoring of sopho- 
moie Bob Madgic and the fine 
shooting of Warren enabled the 
Sabrinas to break an early 18-18 
tie and gain a 34-24 half time 

Bob Parker, high man for the 
Purple with 15, and Morton, who 
began to score in the second half 
to end up with 12 points, led the 
Eph attack in the second half as 
the Ephs kept pace with Amherst 
but the damage was done. The 
ball handling of Madgic and the 
rebounding of Warren and Lee 
Lindeman never allowed the Pur- 
ple to narrow the gap to less than 
six points. 

Ephs Press 

With three minutes to go Wil- 
liams went into a full court press 
but this has not been an effective 
weapon for the Ephs this year and 
the Jeffs maintained their lead to 
gain the victory. The loss closed 
out the season for both teams and 
gave the Ephs a 9-11 mark for 
the year. Both Williams and Am- 
herst hold 3-1 records in Little 
Three competition.

Educators Meet 
For Conference 

Twenty-seven New England ed- 
ucators from Amherst, Wesleyan, 
Bowdoin, Dartmouth and Wil- 
liams met in Middletown. Conn., 
last week for the fifteenth annual 
Pentagonal Conference. 

Representing Williams at the 
three-day discussion sessions were 
President James P. Baxter III, 
Dean Vincent M. Barnctt, Dean 
of Freshmen William G. Cole, Di- 
rector of Admissions Frederick C. 
Copeland and Treasurer Cliiu'lc,< 
A. Foehl. 

Barnett pointed out that the 
conference discussions ( 1 ) "tend 
to develop the awareness that we 
all have the same problems" and 
(2) "bring to our attention occa- , 
sional new ideas". Resolutions orj 
specific recommendations are ne- 
ver formulated, he emphasized. 

Among the 42 topics proposed 
for discussion, Dartmouth's new 
three semester plan received the 
most consideration. Amherst pro- 
posed the topic "honor systems 
and dishonesty". 

Wesleyan suggested a discussion 
of the status of students not af- 
filiated with fraternities and re- 
cent developments with respect to 
selection practices of fraternities. 
The effectiveness of Chapel and 
Assembly programs and financial 
control of non-athletic student or- 
ganizations were other topics un- 
der the student affairs category. 

Jeffs Finally Achieve 
Liberal Honor System 

The Amherst Honor Code was 
put into effect last week by the 
Student Committee to the Faculty, 

The new system, a compromise 
between the strictly regulated and 
absolutely free plans suggested, 
features disciplinary action on 
clieaters reported by fellow stu- 
dents. Yet, it is the free choice 
of the student to ignore cheating, 
deal with it himself, or report the 
cheater. No honor statement is 

Mitary . . . 

but only 2,600 men over 18 and 
one-half were admitted. 6,300 
came from under the 18 and one- 
half group and 3,000 high school 
seniors who joined the program 
were allowed to complete their 
high school year. 

Other six months enlistments 
are in the Air Force, Coast Guard, 
Na\y and Marines. These pro- 
grams, however, are not open all 
year round and the quotas are 
extremely small. In any case, Mr. 
Flynt recommends that those in- 
terested should inquire now so as 
to insure their chances of getting 
into the programs when they 
want to. 

In adopting this form, the com- 
mittee tried to come as close as 
possible to "the social ideal of a 
community bound together by the 
voluntary cooperation of indivi- 
duals rather than by threat of co- 
ercive force," giving the greatest 
possible freedom to both potential 
cheater and potential informer. 

Amherst has been under the 
proctor-type system for thirty 
years, and wary steps toward hon- 
or had been made earlier hi the 
year. Physics 22 was operated as 
a test class on an honor system 
last semester with inconclusive re- 
sults; 25 per cent of the test stu- 
dents thought there was or would 
be cheating under the system. 

Frosh Wrestling . . . 

point for a minute riding time 

Victorious for Williams were 
Dean Howard, Bill Penny, Jack 
Staples and Fred Noland. Howard 
(123) decisioned Bob Denny, 3-1, 
while Penny (157) outpointed Bob 
Fulton. Staples (167) dominated 
Al Keener and won, 8-2. Noland 
(177) beat Bruce Evans, 3-0. 

The frosh grapplers' season rec- 
ord is now complete at 2-3. They 
will also wrestle in the New Eng- 
land Championships this week.

Benedict Describes 
'Storefront Churches' 

The Reverend Donald Benedict, 
pastor of the Inner City Protes- 
tant Parish of Cleveland, spoke in 
Sunday chapel on "Storefront 
Churches in the Slums." 

Benedict stressed the import- 
ance of finding the "compulsion 
of God" in choosing a vocation. 
He argued that Americans no 
longer seek God's will in choosing 
a job and emphasized the need 
for intelligent and eager doctors, 
lawyers, and ministers to work in 
the slums of the great cities. He [ 
also mentioned the anachronism 1 
of slums in "the most highly pro- 
ductive nation in the world." 

British Art Critic 
To Tdk Tonight 

English art critic Eric Newton 
will speak on "Opposition for the 
Realist" 7:30 tonight in the Law- 
rence Art Museum, 

In the lecture Newton will con- 
duct "an inquiry into the func- 
tions of non-figurative painting 
today." The lecture Is sponsored by 
the Williams Lecture Committee. 

Newton, presently art critic for 
"Time and Tide", a London ma- 
gazine, boasts an impressive cata- 
logue of accomplishments. He is 
presently lecturing at CambridKe 
and was, at one time, art critic for 
both the Manchester Guardian 
and the London Times. 

As a practicing artist Newton 

was commissioned to do the mo- 

' sales in the chapel of the Royal 

Naval School at Suffolk, England. 

Gargoyle . . . 

tee on the Honor System, headed 
by Jack Love '58, decided that 
teachers should have the freedom 
to "examine as they see fit." 

The committee believed that the 
spirit of the Honor System was 
"damaged" by courses which re- 
peated exams or exam questions 
and suggested that exams be made 
available to all students at the 
Stetson Library and/or the prac- 
tice of collecting exams, especially 
of the objective type, be estab- 
lished at Williams.

SC Desires One J. A. 
From Each Fraternity 

In a meeting Tuesdiiy iiit^lit, the Social Comioil ricoiiiiiu'iidod 
to tlif Junior Advisor St'lcctioii Coniniittcc tliat it 'maki' c-vory 
effort "to choose at least one Junior Adviser from each of the fif- 
teen fraternities. 

hi adoptinj^ the resolution, the SC moved closer to endorse- 
ment of last week's Rkcohd proposal than the Colleirc Coinicil, 
which rejected the recominendation Monday nij^ht. 

At least two of the dissenting 
voters, Jerry Packard and John 
Greer, stated that they voted a- 
gainst the measure because they 
favored more unequivocal action. 
There were three negative votes. 

The Social council has since dis- 
patched in a letter to tlie J. A. 
Selection Committee the following 
motion : 

"The Social Council recommends 
that the selection committee con- 
tinue to choose Junior Advisers 
primarily on a merit basis and at 
the same time make every effort 
pcssible to select a Junior Adviser 
from each fraternity." 


In other new bu.sine.s.s the SC 
appointed Pete Willmott as rep- 
resentative to the College Council 
Hou.separty Committee. It also set 
up a Policy Committee composed 
of Bo Kirschen, John Greer, Steve 
Felman, John Palmer, Woody Bur- 
gert and Jim Reynolds plus a 
Rushing Committee including To- 
ny Distler, Ernie Pleischman, Gary

Thaw Won't Halt 
N. A. Construction 

Recent thaws and rains will not 
affect the flood control work pro- 
ceeding near Route 2 In North 
Adams. This was the opinion ex- 
pressed by city engineer Theodore 
Milette In a Thursday RECORD 
interview. The $18,000,000 Feder- 
al Project is slated for partial 
completion at the end of this year, 
and should be fully constructed by 
January I, 1960. 

The project was begun in 1950 
after North Adams had suffered 
two major disasters in 1949 and 
1950. These floods were due to high 
winds and rain, much like the 
coastal hurricane flood of 1955. 

Object of the construction Is to 
give the river running through 
North Adams "a very high velo- 
city" in order to lessen the danger 
of flooding in congested areas of 
the river. This is to be accomplish- 
ed by giving the water a concrete 
bottom as well as "chute" type 
banks to lessen the normal friction 
over the river bed. 

As Milette outlined the plan, 
levees and chutes are to be con- 
structed from Union Street in N. 
A. as far west as the Sprague 
Electric Co. 

Only one of the five major 
floods that North Adams has sus- 
tained in the past thirty years has 
been due to thawing snow and 
rain. Engineer Milette commented. 
That was in 1936, and the present 
program is capable of handling up 
to 50 per cent more water than 
has been sent through the sys 
tern In the past eight years. 

As to how many of the 18 mil- 
lion government dollars are flow- 
tag into depression-riddled North 
Adams, Mr. Milette could only 

Forged Check Found; 
2nd Dishonesty Case 

Forgery has replaced book thiev- 
ery as the most recent unsolved 
crime at Williams. 

College Police Chief George A. 
Royal received a report this week 
that a check was recently forged 
and drawn on a student's bank ac- 
count. "The student had lost a 
set of personalized checks," said 
Royal, "and apparently someone 
thought that he could forge the 
printed name on the checks and 
make a little extra money." 

No definite leads have, 
been uncovered. 

as yet. 

The forgery case follows close 
on the heels of a series of book- 
stealing felonies which netted a- 
bout sixty textbooks from the 
Freshman Quad. In view of these 
occurrences, Chief Royal warned 
undergraduates to be on the alert 
tor crime. "Dishonesty here is 
sporadic," he said, "but it's not 
uncommon. The Students should 
be aware of the problem."

College Support?

willingness to buy the book. "It's 
disappointing," he said, "tliat pro- 
bably less than half of the stu- 
dents will buy the yearbook. In 
order to maintain a yearbook of

Electrolysis Causes 
Broken Service Pipe 

Students sludging down Spring 
Street this past week were avoid- 
ing the gushing, dirty waters flow- 
ing not only from the early snow 
thaw but also from a broken ser- 
vice pipe. 

At a cost of at least $200 the 
Williamstown Water Department 
is replacing this 30-year-old pipe 
which burst open on Monday. It 
services the House of Walsh, Col- 
lege Book Store, doctors' offices 
and the bakery shop. 

Mr. Charles S. Notsley, Water 
Department head, explained that 
the pipe had simply deteriorated 
with age. "We are replacing it with 
a copper one which should with- 
stand the electrolysis effects caus- 
ed by the underground electric 

The fact that this pipe did de- 
teriorate could mean that the 
other pipes might give way soon. 
Notsley said, however, that the de- 
partment would do nothing until 
signs of such breaking should ap- 

The service pipe runs off a cast 
iron main pipe put down in 1890 
"There is little fear of this pipe 
deteriorating," he said, "except if 
the Joints give way." 

"We've had particular trouble 
working at this time of the year 
because of the busy traffic of the 
students and the over-abundant 
snow fall," Notsley commented. 

Colleges To Face 
Population Crisis 

Re-evaluation of educational 
goals is not the only problem 
which faces American colleges. 
Concurrent witli the agonies of 
reappraisal and continuing finan- 
cial worries, U. S. schools must 
somehow provide education for an 
ever-increasing number of college 

Seven million applicants are ex- 
pected by 1970, twice the number 
estimated for 1960 and a figure 
far outdistancing the numbers 
who seek college education today. 


In a recent Newsweek article 
entitled "Who Should Go, Who 
Shouldn't", Education Editor Her- 
man R. Allen said; "educators 
must devise new selection and ad- 
mission methods so that every 
qualified high school graduate has 
a fair chance to earn a college de- 
gree." In short, colleges must ex- 
pand. They must open the door 
to all. 

Admissions Director Frederick 
C. Copeland, in a Wednesday REC- 
ORD interview, said, however, that 
Williams could not be expected to 
grow any larger with its present 
facilities. He recalled that after 
the war Williams added 200 stu- 
dents to its rolls without expan- 
sion of its facilities, and that the 
college has had to absorb great 
expense in order to accommodate 
1000 students satisfactorily. Said 
Copeland, "We have already ex- 


Concerning "new selection and 
admission methods," the Williams 
Admissions Director said that even 
with the vast Increase in appli- 
cants which will come after 1960, 
"we hope to keep a perspective of 
choosing students with a breadth

Tsardom fell in the .sjjriiig. Cae.sar toppled 
in the middle of March. At VVilliains, too, dull 
roots are stirred hy sprinjr rain. 

Snow turns to puddles. Afternoons are longer. 
And grass grows wiiere heating pipes run under 
the ground. 

The college becomes restless. 

Pohtical ferment, radical action, draw at- 
tention away from classes. 

Two years ago the freshman class— dissatis- 
fied with Ba,\ter Hall food— laimched a vocifer- 
ous protest against Student Union administra- 
tors. That same sjjring freshmen signed a peti- 
tion stating that they would not join fraternities 
unless total opportunity were achieved. 

Last spring fraternities were again the head- 
lines. One house split wide open over the issue 
of discrimination. Tlie Phillips Committee. And 
the "Terrible Twenty-two" Plan to abolish fra- 
ternities altogether. 

As the snow melts, we wonder . . . Wliat 
will happen this year? 


Perhaps Williams "logism" is not hopeless. 

Junior Class President Lennie Grey quipped 
last week that "the college is too wrapped up in 
the idea of Mark Ho))kins and his log— too much 
log and no hmbs to crawl out on." 

On Tuesday the SC crawled part way out on 
a limb to face the problem of equal JA represen- 
tation scjuarely. Tlie CC Monday had stayed on 
the log. 

The Social Council injected "make every ef- 
fort" into the original RECORD proposal. Al- 
though their clause had a weakening effect— and 
at least two SC members understood this— their 
proposal was at least a realistic one. 

All comment has been made. 

Now we look to the JA Selection Committee 
for a practical solution of the problem. 


The college camiot, it seems, support a year- 
book. Gul editors foresee a $500 minimum defi- 
cit this year. 

Responsibility for this problem is difficult to 
determine. The editors claim "weak student sup- 
port." Others say that Gul subscription drives 
have been neither energetic nor well-organized. 

Yearbook deficits are, in any case, a continu- 
ing phenomenon. And a good yearbook is neces- 
sary to tlie college. 

Williams should not, however, force every 
student to buy the Gul. We recommend, then, 
a plan: 

Every student who has not stated to the col- 
lege treasurer by October 15 tliat he does not 
want a Gul should receive it automatically. The 
cost should be added to his bill. 

We look to the CC— now guardians of the 
extra-curricular purse— for positive action on an- 
other critical problem. 


By Ernie linhoff 

"The average Williams undergraduate is so 
shell-shocked by the reciuired texts thrown at 
iiim and the diffusion of his social life that he is 
positive he has all the books he needs and inore 
than any mortal should be required to face." 

A recent check with the two Sjiring Street 
bookshops reveals an interesting application of 
this comment by Ray Washburne to tlie extra- 
curricular reading habits on the Williams cam- 

While helping to promote this year's Uterary 
consumption by "By Love Pos.sessed" and es- 
])ecially "Peyton Place", the local student, it 
seems, generally fosters no intimate relationship 
between himself and the best-seller list. 


Book prices ( James Jones' "Some Came Run- 
ning", $7.50 plus reviews; Max Lerner's "Ameri- 
ca as a Civilization", $10.00 plus length) natural- 
ly aid in constructing barriers to contemporary 
works. Perhaps the formidable obstacles, simply 
the lack of time and also interest after the usual 
five course routine are the basic factors involved. 

The local best-seller standings parallel fairly 
consistently the national ratings (such as the 
Times') for tlie first five or six places in both 
the Fiction and General categories. After that 
faculty and students have their own ideas. 

"Bt/ Love Possessed" 

The general clioice for varied buyers during 
this academic year at the College and WilHams 
Bookstores has clearly been Cozzens' "By Love 
Possessed". A more recent favorite is Jean Kerr's 
"Please Don't Eat the Daisies" while the Williams 
student has of late found special pertinence in 
Jack Kerouac's "On the Road" with the Beat 

Shulman's "Rally Round the Flag, Boys!", Tra- 
ver's "Anatomy of a Murder" and Smith's "Wliere 
Did You Go? Etc." are strong runners-up for all 
reading contingents. Books such as Lerner's 
"America", Parkinson's "Parkinson's Law", Cos- 
tain's "Below the Salt" and "Baruch: My Own 
Story" sold well around Christmas but have since 
fallen off. 

College Faculty publications still maintain- 
ing respectable positions at the downtown stores 
are: Professor Schuman's "Russia since 1917". 
Professor Rudolph's "Mark Hopkins and the 
Log", Professor Burns' "The Lion and the Fox", 
and Professor Hunt's "Donne's Poetry". 


A recent boon to the book business suggested 
by both Joe Dewey and Washburne has been the 
pai^er editions which have made everything from 
Nietzsche to Metallious financially and stylistic-

Wrestlers Prepare For Tourney; 
Hutchinson, Wieneke Top Favorites 

Eleven teams will compete for the New EuKland wrestlintr 
cham|MOiishiiM this weekend at the Coast Guard Academy in 
New London, Connecticut. Coaches Jim Ostendarp and Pete De- 
lisser have been priming the team rigorously for the meet. 

Williams hopes at least to retain the position of runner-iii) 
which it won last year. The Ephmen have a 4-1-1 record this year 
tlie only coming at the hands of last year's New England 
Champions, Springfield. 

Senior Captain Jim Hutchinson 
and junior Kuhrt Wieneke are un- 
defeated this season and are fav- 
orites in the 137-lb. and 147-lb. 
classes respectively. Hutchinson 
has defeated 1957 NE champ Rich 
Dickey of Springfield and 1957 
runnerup, Bob Imbrle of Coast 
Guard. Wieneke, two time NE 
champion, has not lost In two 

Three sophomores, Wally Matt 
at 123-lbs., Stew Smith at 130-lbs„ 
and Steve Lewis at 157-lbs. have 
4-1 records this year in New Eng- 
land competition. Matt has lost 
only to Bob Campane, 1957 Champ 
from Springfield. Smith and Lewis 
have also lost only to Springfield. 
Senior Pete Carney will be the 
Ephs' entry in the 167-lb. class. 

Although he missed the Little 
Three meets because of illness, 
junior Dave Moore finished the 
season with a 4-0 record. He is ex- 
pected to finish high in the 177- 
Ib.class. Junior Bob Hatcher, NE 
heavyweight runner-up last sea- 
son, has not wrestled a full match 
this year. He suffered a dislocated 
elbow in his first match and did 
not wrestle until the Little Three, 
in which he won two matches by

Stafford To Lead 
Squash Team In 
Nationals At Yale 

By Toby Smith 

Williams closes out a successful 
7-3 season this weekend with the 
National Intercollegiate Singles 
Championships at Yale. Playing on 
the Eph four man team will be 
Captain Ollie Stafford, Greg To- 
bin, Roger Southall, and Tom 

Coach Clarence Chaffee faces 
stiff competition from eighteen 
colleges and universities from the 
U. S. and Canada. Last year Wil- 
liams placed fifth. 

Smith-Chapman Favored 

Stafford will meet his principle 
competition from John Smith- 
Chapman of Sir George Williams 
College (Montreal), Dick Hoehn of 
Dartmouth, and John Griffiths of 

Shulman and Southall are both 
veterans of last year's Intercolle- 
giates, but Sophomore Greg To- 
bin, second ranked Williams' play- 
er, will be entering his first na- 
tional competition. 

Williams will also be fighting 
for a third place national ranking 
with Princeton. This ranking along 
with the draw for the tournament 
will have been decided Thursday 
by a committee made up of 
coaches from Yale, Princeton, and 
Coach Chaffee.

Swimmers To Face Stiif Opposition 
In Attempt To Retain N. E. Crown 

The Williams varsity swimming team will defend its New 
England Championship aj^ainst powerful Brown and Sjiringfield 
at Amherst this weekend witli every indication of a fight to the 
finish for the coveted winner's j^laque. 

Coach Bob Muir notes that "Browii is the best on paper, but 
it has been very close the last three years and we will make it 
close again this vear, and wc could win." 

Co-captains Barry Buckley and 
Bob Severance will lead the team 
against fourteen teams in the fi- 
nals beginning at 2 p.m. Satur- 
day. Captain-elect Chip Ide is ex- 
pected to lead the team in the 
score column, particularly in his 
specialties, the 50 and 100 yard 
freestyle. Ide has been high scorer 
for the team's regular season. 

Junior Don Lum will try to gar- 
ner points in the distances where 
Williams has previously been a 
power. Severance will oppose 
Brown's record holding Chapman 
in the 100 butterfly while Henry 
Tatem will face New England rec- 
ord holder Plourde of Bowdoin in 
the 200 yard backstroke. 

Both relays are toss-ups between 
Captain-elect CHIP IDE, Wil- Williams and Brown, so Williams 

liams hopes in the 50 & 100 yard

Frosh Hockey Wins 

Closing out a very successful 6- 
1-1 sea.son, the Williams Freshman 
Hockey team whipped a highly 
touted Williston squad 10-1 at 
Williams last Wednesday. 

At tlie end of the first period 
the score was 1-0 for Williams. 
The goal came on a two on two 
when Laurie Hawkins fed a pass 
through to George Lowe. 

In tlie next period Williams 
opened up the game as the first 
line began to click with Hawkins 
and Lowe both scoring on break- 
aways. Second line-wing Nick Oh- 
ly also drilled one, and Defense- 
man Jim White connected for his 
first goal of the season. 


hilarious, .

for adults only 

lack of divers is likely to be a ma- 
jor drawback in the Eph attempt 
to win. Williams had a regular 
season record of 6-1-1, an increase 
of one win over last year. 

Williams' fans should watch for 
Brown to show strength, not only 
in the relays and butterfly, but 
also in the diving, where Coast 
Guard may edge in, and in the 
100 yard freestyle, where they may 
place third. Should Brown fail to 
meet expectations in these events 
and the relays, Williams should 
be able to take the lead though 
Springfield, which Williams has 
once defeated, will be on the Ephs' 
heels in many events.

Student Profile 

Scott '58 Given Grant 
For Ec. Study Abroad 

Economics iiiajoi |iin Scott '58, will leave next fall to spend 
a year of stndy at the University of Rangoon in Burma. He is tlie 
winner of one of tlic 113 Rotary International Fellowships awarded 
to students from 80 countries. 

He plans to take conrscs in economics and Burmese. On tlie 
side he hopes to get permission to i 
work for the American economic i 1 • • 

mission in Burma. 

Burma Study 

Scott is doing his thesis on the 
economic development of Burma 
because he feels that Burma typi- 
fies the underdeveloped countrie.s 
of the world. He contrasted the 
American and Russian approaches 
to development. "The Russians 
sacrifice people and culture to ra- 
pid economic growth," he said, 
"while Americans suggest making 
small and gradual changes which 
don't completely disrupt the cul- 

He pointed out that underdevel- 
oped countries don't care who they 
get economic aid from as long as 
they get it. "To underdeveloped 
countries," he commented, "a steel 
mill is the symbol of industrializa- 

Scott believes that "the develop- 
ing economic situation in Burma 
will call for a strong, semi-social- 
ized government because there 
isn't enough private capital." 

College Record 

At Williams Scott has compiled 
an impre.ssive record as a Phi 
Beta Kappa, member of Gargoyle, 
Junior Adviser and President of 
the Student Activities Council.

of interest as well as top scholars." 

Copeland expressed the hope 
that pressure upon college admis- 
.sions offices might be relieved by 
greater emphasis on high school 
guidance programs. Intelligent 
counselling, could, he said, "help 
to select those students who have 
both a real interest In going to 
college and ability to meet college 

While "inevitably there will be 
more disappointments", Copeland 
concluded, the tenor of education 
might well be improved. Once ad- 
mitted, the college student after 
1960 will find less sympathy for 
"coasting" because faculties will 
realize that "there are others ap- 
plying who are willing to work."

In a weekend, in which the swimminjr team won the New Engl mds iiic

In a field of sixty eompetitois, representing twenty institutions in tlu 
Ollie Stafford upset the third seeded pla " ' 
which he howed to Smith-Chapman, to| 
peting on the Ephs' four man 
squad with Stafford were Greg 
Tobin, Rog Southall, and Tom 
Shulman. Williams will take pos- 
session of the trophy which Navy 
has held for the past year. 

Though last year's winner, Ben 
Heckscher of Harvard, has grad- 
uated and thus could not compete, 
the competition was probably the 
roughest ever assembled. Besides 
Stafford, Chapman, and Griffiths, 
the lower bracket contained such 
names as Jim Parrin of Princeton, 
Don Williams of Army, Gerry Em- 
met of Harvard, and Sonny Howe 
from Yale. The upper bracket was 
well represented by Dick Hoehn, 
squash and tennis star from Dart- 
mouth, Larry Sears of Harvard, 
iind Ram.sey Vehslage of Prince- 
ton. In this bracket Sears upset 
Hoihn to gain the finals. He 
played Chapman at 3:00 Sunday 
afternoon to determine the indi- 
vidual winner In a match in which 
Chapman was heavily favored.

County Industries 
Hit By Recession 

Commenting on the general ec- 
onomic situation in the Northern 
Berkshire County area, the man- 
ager of the North Adams Chamber 
of Commerce stated that "we are 
feeling our share of the general 
recession, the textile industry and 
government contractors being the 
hardest hit." 

The merchants on Spring Street 
declared that they have felt no 
great pinch due to the recession, 
but said that a good deal of their 
business comes from the college 
community and thus is not greatly 
affected. It was also pointed out 
that a large segment of Williams- 
town is not directly affected by 
lay-offs in the mills in the rest 
of the area. 

Employment Down 

Employment in the county has 
reached its lowest point in ten 
years, the number of unemployed 
having risen to a total of 2860 in 
January compared with 729 unem- 
ployed during January of last 

The generally weak economic 
condition of the area is reflected 
in the statistics which showed a 
decrease in retail trade of 2 per 
cent as compared with a general 
nation-wide rise of from 5 per cent 
to 6 per cent in relation to the 
retail trade of the previous year. 
In spite of the large federal flood 
control project, the general con- 
struction trades have been having 
hard times. 

Brigrht Spots 

There are, however, a few bright 
spots in the economic overcast. 
Despite the fact that such large 
concerns as Sprague Electric have 
laid off an unusually large number 
of workers, a general upturn in 
government contract business is 
anticipated due to the increase in 
defense spending. 

Three Leave Houses; 
Raise Selectivity Issue 

"Institutionalized selectivity" in 
the Williams fraternity system 
caused three students to resign 
from their fraternities last week. 

The three, Mac Hassler '59, Don 
Morse '58, and Steve Rose '58, stat- 
ed that selectivity, as manifested 
in "rushing", is harmful both to 
those doing the selecting and to 
those being selected, and that the 
present manifestations of selec- 
tivity in the Williams fraternity 
system "must eventually be abol- 

'61 To Sponsor 
Spring Weekend 

The College Council Monday 
night approved a surprise bid by 
Bob Montgomery, president of '61, 
for the sponsorship of spring 

The offer was made as a result 
of the Council's reluctance to 
sponsor the weekend itself through 
the new Houseparty Committee 
(John Mangel '59, chairman). Un- 
der the provisional CC sponsorship 
established last week by President 
Jack Hyland, Harry Marshard's 
orchestra of Boston has been con- 
tracted for Friday's Baxter Hall 
dance at $1600. Phinney's Favorite 
Five will play in the Freshman 
Lounge for $250. 

The Council accepted recom- 
mendations to establish the CC 
Committee on Finance (CCF) to 
replace the SAC in formulating the 
annual extra-curricular budget 
and college tax. White '59, chair-

ers to decide the amount of profit

cost to be applied to houseparty

Campus opinion on the re- 
signations ranged from com- 
plete sympathy to furious in- 
dignation. Fee page three for 
the complete statement of the 
resignees, and sferal resulting 

Following the announcement of 
the resignations Wednesday night, 
a "hoax" notice in Thursday's Ad- 
visor caused Jared Rardin '59, to 
schedule an informal panel dis- 
cussion for that evening. 

"Congressional Hearing" 

Presenting the viewpoint of the 
three resignees to a crowd of over 
150 in the tense atmosphere of a 
"Congressional hearing" were Has- 
sler and College Chaplain William 

Coffin attributed the existence 
of "unlikeable people" in part to 
"I'ejection" on the part of their 
fellows. He observed that the at- 
titude of fraternities toward these 
men "is apt to be diametrically op- 
posed to the cure indicated". 

Coffin also stated that "unless 
we learn to like a wider variety 
of people, we are not fulfilling our 
potentialities". Selectivity in the 
fraternity system, he said, "leads 
to a more narrow selection of as-

worth $6,000, or $3,000 per year,

between $600 and $1500.

American Chaplain in Moscow 
from 1953 to 1955. concentrated on 
the illusion of change created in 
Russia after Stalin's death. 

Most of the great reforms, such 
as the promise to reorganize the 
Soviet economy in favor of more 
consumers' goods and the decision 
to allow criticism and printing of 
scandal, turned out to be merely 
"window dressing," he said. 

Yet the Soviet leaders, Bisso- 
nette concluded, may have gone 
farther than they thought in pre-

Krushchev's recent advocation of 
regionalized rather than central-

President Baxter's first lecture 
was concerned with the origins of 
the isolationist policy followed by 
the U. S. until World War I. He 
pointed out that today products of 
modern science such as the ICBM 
make this policy impossible. 

His next two lectures dealt with 
expansion and the imperialism of 
our country. He demonstrated to 
those who would be overly proud 
or moralistic that America used 
unscrupulous methods of gaining 
territory in much the same way 
as other countries do today. 

The two most recent lectures 
provided some enlightenment on 
U. S. policies in the two world wars 
when the United States was forced 
to Join the loose coalition of free 
world nations.

When three people left trateniities last week 
discussion erupted throuj^h the campus. 

By Saturday the discussion waned. On Sun- 
day the issue was dead. 

When the three men resigned Thursday as 
a Christian protest aj^ainst selectivity, they pub- 
lished their Apoloj^ia in the College Chapel's 
newsletter, "The Tower " (see jiage 3). 

For each the decision was a difficult and 
lonely one. Each liked his fraternity. Each faced 
a personal strugffle. Whether to commit one- 
self to a principle and to act on it is never easy 
to decide. And by the time they resigned, terms 
had become ill-defined. 

We do not agree that resignation is the most 
realistic way to cure the ills of the fraternity 

Although selectivity is not necessarily wrong, 
tlie criteria upon which men are judged during 
rushhig are often unjustified and unsound. Fra- 
ternities can encourage anti-intellectualism, 
which counteracts the high standards of educa- 
tion handed out in the classroom. And the "fra- 
ternity spirit" is often narrow, a sense of pros- 
perous complacency anachronistic to a world 
surrounded— as a Russian refugee recently put 
it— by a dead dog. 

Yet the best place to combat these ills is 
within the houses, not in Baxter Hall. The fra- 
ternities are a social organization which is dif- 
ficult—without considerable amounts of money— 
to effectively destroy. So one must work within 
them to make them as good as possible. 

We hope, however, that the action of the 
three students last week, will not be forgotten. 

It could produce three welcome results: 

1 ) An attractive alternative to the fraternities— 
the end of total opjiortuiiity which provides no 
alternative. A large, unstigmatized non-affiliate 

2) Plans to revise the present ru.shing system, 
to bring criteria into a twentieth century con- 

3) More acute and untiring criticism of the 
fraternity system from within the houses.

Tlie second issue of "referendum" is a little 
magazine which talks big. 

Only two of the five articles are worth read- 
ing. The others are a combination of pat "lib- 
eralism" and muddled thinking. 

Yet it calls itself a "fearless" journal. On the 
back cover it cries that since no one on campus 
expressed interest in their magazine, Williams 
men must be "insijiid conservatives." The guilty 
party, however, may not be the reader. 

In a lead article the editor protests nuclear 
poisoning of the air. The sentiment is fine, but 
he asserts that the best way to end this U. S.- 
led "Crusade against life" is a sudden "coherent 
demand for cessation" by the population of the 
world. The naivete is disappointing. 

In "Sputnik, Science and the Liberal Arts," 
Ceorge Aid attacks Eisenhower's bill granting a 
billion dollars for increased scientific education. 

This is unnecessary, he says, because the 
"curve of destructive power" has reached the 
point of "total annihilation" and that inore wea- 
pons are unnecessary. Almost 100,000 pages of 
evidence used for the Gaither Report would 
contradict Aid's assertions. 

J. Donald Winston calls the scheduled course 
in the history of American education a "blow at 
liberal education." Sanctifying "liberal arts," he 
calls History 17a a symptom of "the social pre- 
paration mania that has swept American edu- 

This is a narrow-minded attack on a timely 
expansion of the Williams curriculum. 

Besides these sophomoric ideas, however, 
"Referendum" includes two excellent articles. 

J. E. Brash's "Tlie Beat Misconception" is an 
intelligent, well-written insight into the "beat 
generation" myth which has emerged from Ker- 
ouac's "On the Road." He competently demon- 
strates that Kerouac's book goes far deeper 
than Playboy-type sensationalism. 

Finally Professor Schuman, with erudition 
and style, offers challenging proposals for a U. S. 
foreign policy. Nothing new to those who have 
taken Political Science 3-4, yet it is almost 
worth buying the magazine for this one article. 


Exciting Evening 

by Donald Gifford 
Professor of English 

The first of tliis semester's drama workshops 
at the Adams Memorial Theatre last Wednesday 
and Thursday must be scored in the "ringing 
success" column on tlie basis of both performance 
and attendance. The Prologue and Act I of Ben 
Jonson's "Volpone", plus Mosca's soliloquy 
Act HI as epilogue were performed with energy 
and verve and added up to an exciting evening. 
The evening's principal disappointment was its 
brevity: I was prepared and more than ready to 
enjoy the rest of the play. 

Tony Distler's performance of Mosca was 
varied and delightful. Tim Tully's Volpone was 
broad, ojien an forthright, perhaps a less subtle 
counterpoise to Mosca than the play as a whole 
demands, but quite effective within the limits 
of Act I. E. J. Johnson's Prologue was somewhat 
slow and over-forceful in its pace, but his Vol- 
terre, Pete Schroeder's Corvino and John Burg- 
hart's Carbaecio were able and energetic al- 
though somewhat unshaded projections of the 
three "gulls". 

Clay Hunt's direction exploited the intimacy 
of the studio theatre to reflect the "duphcity 
of Jonson's comedy in which the actors counter- 
pointed the illusion of the play as a reahty in 
itself against a direct and jocular contact with 
the audience. This aspect of the performance 
was unusually successful — a happy coincidence 
of historical accuracy and contemporary thea- 
trical interest. 

The )3erformances and the coffee klatches 
which followed were an interesting evidence of 
the motivations behind this year's program of 
experimental dramas at the AMT. The informal 
atmosphere of the studio theati-e encourages 
both audience and actors to "cooperate" in the 
attempt to understand and experience phases of 
drama which the large theatre ujistairs, by its 
very nature, renders formal and distant. At the 
same time the workshop makes room for con- 
tributions from directors other than those on the 
theatrre staff, and it is to be hoped that Cap and 
Bells' intention to use the workshop as a training 
context for new actors may meet with some suc- 
cess in the course of the spring's program. 

Letter To The Editor 


To the RECORD: 

Wilhams fraternities rece(ntly have been 
subjected to criticism on the moral weakness of 
selectivity. Another moral shortcoming inherent 
in the very system itself lies in the encroachment 
upon individualism. 

Our fraternity system generates intense so- 
cial ]5ressures which submerge the individual 
beneath narrow standards. Over 100 years ago 
Tocqueville called it "Tyranny of the Majority;" 
it is a standard feature in our society today. But 
such a condition should never exist in a sup- 
posedly intelligent, self-aware environment. An 
awareness of the problem, however, is the first 
step toward solution. 

These pressures to conform are exerted in 
three areas: 

1) Within the house. In close group living, 
group standards and group morality naturally 
evolve, and many men seem to accept these 
values blindly without thinking them through. 
Another manifestation is the tendency to work 
on quieter men "to bring them out," or "to bring 
them into the house more." The Group frequently 
does not accept a man who is different from its 
members or who does not take an active inter- 
est in the Group. 

2) Outside the house. Our system revolves 
around the brutal fight for self -survival; rushing. 
Anything which any brother does outside the 
house inevitably is judged by its effect on rush- 
ing. Thus, a brother - or even a house — is hesi- 
tant to do anything off the beaten track. Fur- 
thermore, a house cannot afford to get "typed." 
In other words, each house must appear similar 
to other houses for purposes of rushing. 

3) The freshmen. Tremendous pressures of 
conformity to the "typical Williams Man" ideal 
are exerted. If a freshman wants to get into a 
"good" house, he darn well better meet the norm 
and do what everyone else expects him to do. A 
true individualist may have difficulty in rushing. 

All these tendencies have beneficial aspects; 
trouble arises only when they are carried to ex- 
tremes - which is frequently the ease. The bat- 
tle of individualism versus conformity is a moral 
problem. Williams men must continue to recog- 
nize these dangers — and curb them when neces-

{By the Author of "Rally Round the Flag, Boyal "and, 
"Barefoot Boy with Cheek.") 


The first thought tlmt comes into our minds upon entering 
college is, of, miirriiige. But how many of us go about 
seeking mates, as 1 like to call them, in a truly scientific manner? 
Not many, you may be sure. 

So let US today make a scientific survey of the two principal 
causes of marriage— personality need and projjinquity. 

Personality need means that we choose mates because they 
possess certain qualities that complete and fulfill our own per- 
sonalities. Take, for example, the case of Aianson Duck. 

As a frp.sliman Aianson made a fine scholastic record, played 
varsity scral)lil(', and was president of his class. One would 
think that Aianson was a totally fulfilled man. But he was not. 
Tlu're was sonu'tiiing lacking in his life, something vague and 
indefinable tli.'it \riis needed to make his personality complete. 

Then one day Aianson discovered what it was. As he was 
walking out of his class in pottery, a fetching coed 
named (Irace Ek ofTered him a handsome red and white pack 
and said, "Marlboro?" 

"Yes!" he cried, for all at once he knew what he had been 
needing to round out his personality— the hearty fulfilhnent of 
MarUxiro Cigarettes, the soul-repairing mildness of their fine 
tol)a(X'0, tlw enni/ draw of tlieir unpnralkled fdter, the ease and 
convenience of their crushproof flip-top box. "Yes, I will take a 
Marlboro!" cried Aianson. "And I will also take you to wife 
if you will have me I" 

"I^a!" she exclaimed, throwing her apron over her face. But 
after a while she removed it and they were married. Today 
they live happily in Baffin Ijind where Aianson is with an 
otter -glazing firm and Grace is a bookie. 

l'ropin(|uity, the second principal cause of marriage, simply 
means closeness. I'ut a boy and a girl close together for a sus- 
tained iieriod of time and their proximity will certainly ripen 
into love and their love into marriage. A perfect example is 
the case of Fafnir Sigafoos. 

While a freshman at Louisiana State University, Fafnir was 
required to cri'wl through the Big Inch pipeline as part of his 
fraternity initiation. He entered the pipe at Baton Rouge and, 
alone and joyless, he proceeded to crawl north. 

As he passed Lafayette, Indiana, he was agreeably surprised 
to be joined by a comely girl named Mary Alice Isinglass, a 
Purdue freshman, who, oddly enough, had to crawl through 
the liig Inch as part of her sorority initiation. 


Chatting amiably as they crawled through Ohio, Pennsyl- 
vania, and Now York State, Fafnir and Mary Alice discovered 
they bad much in common— like a mutual affection for licorice, 
bobsledding, and the nonsense verse of Arnold Toynljee. When 
they reached the \'ermont border they were going steady, and 
when they emerged from the pii)e at Boothbay Harbor, Maine, 
they were engaged. 

After a good hot bath they were married and today they live 

in Klamath Falls, Oregon, where Fafnir is in the weights and 

measures department and Mary Alice is in the roofing game. 

They have three iliildren, all named Norman. «ig68. M..8haio».

Record Symposium 

To reflect the discussion of 
fraternities wliich hit the cam- 
pus suddenly last week, the 
RECORD presents four differ- 
ent views. 

This symposium is in no way 
an attempt to present all pos- 
sible positions on the questions 
which were raised when three 
men left their houses last 
Thursday. Instead, the conflict 
of views presented here suggests 
the intensity of discussion.

A ^Positive' Selectivity 

By Rev. Charles E. Lange '53 
Ass't. Rector — St. John's Church 
Three Williams students, Messrs. Hassler, Morse, and Rose, 
have made a hard and courageous decision to resign from their 
fraternities, arriving at this decision after seriously wrestling with 
the ethical implications of the Christian faidi. While I salute their 
moral courage, 1 must take issue with them on the validity of 
their ethical judgment and analysis. As one who spent four years

Explain Their Decision To Leave 

Senior Questions 
Ethical Grounds 

By Warren Clark, Jr. 

As a senior I am just now join- 
ing a fraternity. I therefore stand 
in anthesis to my classmates who 
are now leaving. 

Why, I am asked, am I now 
joining? Am I giving up any in- 
tegrity in an effort to "join"? Am 
I giving into the sins of the world 
in order to survive? 

First, I never put my decision to 
join a house on any ethical 
grounds. I did not weigh whether 
they were good or evil, moral, a- 
moral, or immoral. I joinpd be- 
cause I liked the people in the 
house, its atmosphere, and the 
social experience it afforded. 

It is said that selectivity is a 
bad thing, that it is a type of seg- 
regation, and that it is contrary 
to many principles of tolerance 
and Christian love. I am in a goori 
position to know this. As a sopho-

By Donald Hassler '59

Stephen C. Rose '58 

After serious thought we have 
decided that, because of its basic 
principle of selectivity, the frater- 
nity system no longer has grounds 
for continued existence. As a con- 
sequence of this belief, we have re- 
signed from our respective frater- 
nities. This action, however, is not 
due to dissatisfaction with any 
particular fraternity, but with the 
fraternity system as a whole. 

The underlying notion of the 
fraternity system is that man has 
the right to accept those with 
whom he feels to be compatible 
and reject those for whom he has 
a distaste. This is an unrealistic 

assumption because it is impos- 
sible for any man to insulate him- 
self from those whom he does not 
like. And yet selectivity in the 
fraternity system encourages such 
insulation and even incorporates 
it into its rules through the de- 
vices of "chops" and "blackballs". 

Great Harm 

It can be argued that through- 
out one's life a person will be se- 
lective, just by choosing certain 
friends over others. This is true, 
but no man is absolved of the re- 
sponsibility of making a neighbor 
of every man he meets. Man's se- 
lectivity is often the source of 
great harm, and it is, in our opin- 
ion, immoral to make this selec- 

See Page 6, Col. 4 

and a fraternity man, I believe 
these roles can be ethically recon- 

Their basic criticism is that the 
fraternity principle of selectivity 
is an "evil which is present in its 
vei'y structure". Selectivity is seen 
as evil because "no man is absolv- 
ed of the responsibility of making 
a neighbor of every man he meets." 
Morally Neutral 

Selectivity does not, however. In- 
evitably imply rejection, and 
therefore it cannot be maintained 
that selectivity is intrinsically 
evil. True, selectivity is present in 
the very structure of the frater- 
nity system, but the principle of 
selectivity in itself is morally neu- 
tral, and it can be either good or 
evil depending on the motivation 
behind its use, and the results. 

When fraternities first develop- 
ed on the Williams campus, they 
were a small minority of individ- 
uals associating together for the

Matmen Second In New England's; 
Hatcher Wins Heavyweight Division 

Tlie Williams varsity wrestlinK team placed second to Spring- 
field in the New EnKlaud Intercollegiate Wrestling; Association 
Championship Tournament at the U. S. Coast Gnard Academy 
last Friday and Saturday, placing 7 of 8 in the top 4 in each class. 
The cham|)ionship was the eighth in a row for Springfield. Tufts 
was third and M. I. T. fourtli. 

Boh Hatcher, who wrestled his first complete match of the 
season on Friday, became the New England champion in the un- 
limited division as he defeated Ray Fisher of Tufts in a brutal and 
bloody brawl. Fisher was the man 
who dislocated Hatcher's elbow In 
the first meet of the season. Bob 
won the match on the strength of 
two seconds riding time. In the 
semi-finals he had defeated La- 
num of Dartmouth in another ov- 
ertime thriller. 

Stu Smith took second place In 
the 130 pound class, while Steve 
Lewis copped a second in the 157 
pound class, losing to Burger of 
Springfield, who won the out- 
standing wrestler award. 

The most exciting and captivat- 
ing wrestler of the weekend, how- 
ever, was Eph captain Jim Hutch- 
inson. Jim seeded second in the 
147 pound class, met Coast Guard's 
Bob Imbrie in the semi-finals. Im- 
brie shot everything he had In 
the first period and built up an 
early eight point lead; then Jim 
took over. He kept pecking away 
at Imbrie's huge lead but was un- 
able to catch him. 

In the finals of the consolations, 
Hutchinson, wrestling the last 
match of his career, pinned Haney 
of Springfield in 32 seconds of the 
first o/jrtime period. As Jim made! 5-2. 157 - 
h s way to the dressing room, the| (Wil), 7-0. 
fan.s and wrestlers gave him a 
standing ovation. 

In other events, Wally Matt and 
Dave Moore placed third, and 
Kuhrt Wieneke took fourth in 
their respective divisions.

seventh, with Jack Staples taking 
second place in the 167 pound di-

Squash . . . 

the exception of Tobln who need- 
ed five games and an overtime to 
pull it out of the fire. Tom Shul- 
man was defeated in the second 
round by Emmet, who upset Ar- 
my's Don Williams in the third and 
went on to take a game from 
Chapman in the quarters. South- 
all and Stafford were victorious 
in three comparatively easy games, 
while Tobin was pushed to four 
to win. 

In the round of sixteen. South- 
all played well but lost to Hoehn 
in four games. Tobin also extend- 
ed Sears, eventual finalist, to four 
in losing. The left-hander moved 
Tobin about the court in setting 
up winning corner shots. Stafford 
started very slowly against Howe j 
and lost the first game 15-3. 
Howe's soft serve close to the 
wall and his low volleys caused a 
good deal of trouble. After the rest 
period during which Howe led 2- 
1, Stafford came back to take the 
fourth game in overtime and 
swamped his opponent in the fifth, 

The highlight of the quarters 
was Stafford's victoi-y over Grif- 
fiths, one of the three who had 
beaten him this year in inter- 
collegiate competition. Stafford's 
hard down-the-line drives to 
Griffiths' forehand and his fast 
reflexes in returning his over- 
head serves spelled the difference 
in an exciting last game in which 
Griffiths gambled on a one-point 
overtime and lost. 

Chapman was too accurate for 
Stafford in the semis. He could 
return every shot with a high de- 
gree of speed just over the tin. The 
score was 15-9, 15-11, 17-15. The 
squash team has thus concluded

Williams Relay Team Places ird 
In K Of CMeet; Beats Bates, Tufts 

The Williams College winter re- 
lay team finished an estimable 
season Saturday by placing third 
In the Knights of Columbus track 
meet at Madison Square Garden 
In New York City. The Eph 
sprinters were edged out by Holy 
Cross and St. Joseph's but beat 
Bates and Tufts to the wire in 
the one mile event. 

Mack Hassler was the Williams 
representative at the gun. He was 
followed by Tony Harwood, George 
Sudduth, and captain anchorman 
Bill Pox. The team of four ran the 
eleven lap mile course in the near- 
record time of 3;23.8. This time, 
recorded on the often difficult 
banked Garden track, was only 

.8 of a second off the William.s 
College record for that event. 

Win Two of Four 

Over the season, the team, con- 
sisting also of John Schimmel and 
Bill Moomaw, won two of the four 
meets that it qualified for. It 
placed second and third In the 
final two respectively. The squad 
won both the Y. M. C. A, and tlie 
B. A. A. meets in Boston and was 
beaten by Tufts in the Knights of 
Columbus meet, also held in Bos- 
ton, earlier this year. Hampered 
by injuries, the team failed to 
qualify for the I. C. 4A. meet, held

more rejected by thirteen houses 
I was bitter and defiant against 
The System, and this hindered my 
development at college more than 
it helped. 

Now two years later I find I am 
happiest within The System, and 
so I have committed myself to it. 

We all want friends with whom 
we can communicate, goof off 
with, or at least bump into regu- 
larly instead of burying our heads 
in the sand. Sand does not feel 
well, especially in the neck of a 
good white shirt. The majority 
are happy with the system, and 
there are many who have all the 
brotherhood they want outside it. 
Those, like myself, who were un- 
happy outside a fraternity, might 
have trouble at college anyway. 
System or no System. 

If individuals want to attack or 
leave fraternities on ethical 
grounds, I feel that they should 
be given the right to do so without 
undue criticism, for there is much 
to attack. 

Almost everyone will admit that 
the fraternity system is not per- 
fect. Until a better way, however, 
i.s worked out (possibly needing 
huge sums of money and an emo- 
tional strain on nostalgic alumni) 
an individual can only work out 
his own position, given the way of 
a world in which he finds himself 

The question of whether frater- 
nities are obsolete is a complex is- 
sue; insofar as they are an outlet 
for snobism and petty values — yes. 
As far as they are an outlet for 
social living — hardly. 

Williams Swimmers Tie Brown To 
Retain New England Championship 

With only six swimmers quali- 
fied for the finals, underdog Wil- 
liams sped to a first-place tie with 
much favored Brown to keep its 
New England Championship title 
for another year. It was a moral 
victory as well for the third-seed- 
ed Ephs, and a heavy disappoint- 
ment to the highly touted, deeper, 
Brown team. 

Captain-elect Chip Ide was high 
point man for the Ephs with first 
places in the 50 and 100 yard free- 
style events and a place on the 
meet-deciding, winning 400 yard 
freestyle relay team. The success, 
however, was clearly due to the 
almost unbelievable efforts and 
results from each of the six men. 

Co-captain Barry Buckley broke

breaststroke record in the qualifi-

strong field. Buckley and Tatem 
were also members of the 400 yard 
medley relay team which came 
from behind to threaten Brown's 
comfortable lead in the opening 
race of the finals. 

Co-captain Bob Severance plac-

fly by record-holding Chapman 
of Brown in one of the most ex- 
citing races of the day. 

Don Lum turned in his best 
times to date in the 220 and 440 
yard freestyle events to take close 
seconds in each, upsetting favor- 

lay team into a body-length lead I ites in both as he surged to the

"My speared bait-fish hid in a hole, pouring clouds of 
blood around me. Smelling blood, a 7-foot man-eater, 
unable to find the bait, rushed me. I dodged and started 
taking pictures. I kept the camera between us while

constructive purpose of closer and 
more personal fellowship. There 
was no intention or possibility of 
relegating part of the student body 
to a rejected status. The original 
motivation behind selectivity was, 
therefore, of a positive and good 

It is worth pointing out that 
Jesus himself employed the prin- 
ciple of selectivity to the extent 
of choosing twelve men as an in- 
ner core group with whom he 
closely associated himself. He did 
not reject anyone, but he realized 
the necessity of the intimate, per- 
sonal fellowship of the small 
group within the larger commu- 
nal relationships. 


The above illustrations serve to 
demonstrate that selectivity is not 
evil in itself. It is the motivation 
behind the structure, not the 
structure itself, which comes un- 
der judgment. The motivation of 
close association for the purposes 
of fellowship is good, while the 
motivation of pridefuUy belonging 
to an In-group which contemp- 
tuously rejects others is evil. 

Every social institution is an 
admixture of good and evil fac- 
tors, and an increase of power 
tends to corrupt the original 
structure. In the course of little

is brotherhood. 

We contend that the happiness 
derived from fraternity member- 
ship is unimportant when its 
price, selectivity and the luxurious 
power of one human being to re- 
ject another — often on terms that 
can only be described as bigoted — 
is taken into account. In the course 
of our fraternity membership, we 
have determined that no attempt 
to "reform" the fraternity system 
from within will eradicate the

It will be said that we offer no 
practical alternative to the fra-

state emphatically that the issue 
involved is whether selectivity as 
it is employed by the fraternities 
is realistic or morally valid in the 

present world, a world where peace 
depends upon our ability to trans- 
cend our individual differences. 

We caimot help believing that 
If the Williams College communi- 
ty truly rejects the fraternity con- 
cept of selectivity, It will have the 
strength and insight to take prac- 
tical steps to Implement this de- 
cision. We cannot expect the fra-

day. But we believe that it will 
only be eliminated when individ-

entering the teaching profession 
to continue graduate work in their 
fields. This is one of the few 
scholarships that requires that the 
student be nominated by a pro-

Senate and the broad problems of 
relationships between legislative 
and executive powers. Various in- 
terviews have been arranged for 
the three day excursion. Expenses

Barnett Opposed To 
Plagiarism Inclusion 

Should plagiarism be included in 
the Honor System? 

In a Wednesday RECORD in- 
terview, Dean Vincent M. Barnett 
said : "The Honor System is work- 
ins very well; inclusion of a clause 
on plagiarism, such as the one sug- 
gested by Gargoyle, might prove 
dangerous to the system's effec- 

Barnett explaiired that "the pre- 
sent honor code is very clear. Since 
plagiarism is hard to define and 
encompasses so much, it would 
only serve to muddle the system." 

Under the present system, pla- 
giarism cases are referred to the 
Dean's Ofice. Penalties range from 
a zero on the paper to expulsion 
from school and the Dean warned 
students to be careful in writing 
papers, "because the offense is of- 
ten involuntary."

alized the necessity of maintaining 
the balance of power Isecause, un- 
like conditions in 1916, the French 
army was larsely capitulated and 
the British navy was suffering 
heavily. He stated that the fall of 
Prance "laid in ruin every bit of 
isolationist jacka.ssery." 

Roosevelt Credited 

The feeling for neutrality in the 
U. S. had as a basis the "passion- 
ate" belief that everything done in 
World Wsv T wns wrnnR Baxter 
questioned Roosevelt's leadership 
in 1937-41, but felt that after our 
declaration, "he did a job for 
which we all ought to be grateful." 

A "painful decision" made by 
the U. S. previous to our entrance 
into actual combat was that the 
European war should have priority 
over the Pacific theatre because of 
the immense economic power of 
Europe. He credited Roosevelt with 
selling this idea to the public in 
the face of overwhelming hate and 
fear with which Japan was regard- 
ed after Pearl Harbor. 

Baxter called Churchill the 
"most brilliant exponent of faith 
in the free world."

Williams Students Hosts To Group 
Of Berkshire Farms School Boys 

A group of 27 boys from Berkshire Industrial Farm were en- 
tertained by some Williams freshmen and sophomores in Williams- 
town last Saturday. 

This event marked a high i^oint in student efforts to aid these 
unfortunate boys. Activities included a movie, swiinming, basket- 
ball and an evening ban<iuet. 

Berkshire Farm is a home foi' boys ranging in age from eleven 
to fifteen. Products of broken 
these boys have run amiss 


of the law in some way. The courts, 
in considering their home life, 
have decided that returning them 
home would be disadvantageous to 
solution of their problems. 

A deficiency in such institutions, 
with Berkshire Farm no exception, 
is the lack of personal attention 
that each boy can receive from the 

Through weekly visits, corres- 
pondence and inviting some of the 
boys to their homes, this group of 
Williams students, led by freshmen 
Al Bogatay and Bob Adler, have 
attempted to fill this need for per- 
sonal attention. 

The group of boys and the Wil- 
liams undergraduates involved en- 
,1oyed each other immensely. Pro- 
grams such as these are very im- 
portant In promoting imderstand-

Chapel Speaker 

Reverend Julian Hartt, Chair- 
man of the Department of Re- 
ligion at Yale University, will 
speak at Chapel this Sunday 
evening. He will also speak at 
a supper sponsored by the Wil- 
liams College Chapel to be held 
at 5:30 in St. John's Episcopal 

This is one of the events that 
the W. C. C. is sponsoring dur- 
ing the remainder of the spring 
term. Also slated will be an all- 
freshman week in daily Chapel, 
a freshman smoker on sopho- 
more courses, a Boys' Club work 
weekend, special Good Piiday 
and Easter services and a more 
regular publication of the W. C. 
C. publication, "The Tower". 

Georgia-Williams In 
Segregation Debate 

Segregation will be the topic of 
an Adelphic Union debate between 
Williams and Mercer College of 
Macon, Ga., Monday evening in 
Jesup Hall. Speaking for Williams 
will be Jim Scott '58, and John 
Struthers '59. 

The segregation competition re- 
places the traditional annual Adel- 
phic Union debate with a British 
team. It is expected to be spirited 
because Georgia is now the strong- 
hold of segregated schools in the 

Native Georgians 

L. Martell Layfield and Beverly 
Bates will defend segregation. Both 
are pre-law students active in ex- 
tra-curi'icular circles. Bates of At- 
lanta majors in economics while 
Layfield is a history-English ma- 
jor from Columbus, Ga. The two 
are active in student government 

Discussion and Questions 

An informal question period is 
scheduled after the debate In the 
Rathskeller at 8 p.m. The winner 
will be decided by vote of the au- 

Struthers, a member of DKE, Is 
the retiring Union president. Scott, 
former President of the Student 
Activities Council is a member of 
Gargoyle Society, Beta Theta Pi 
and Phi Beta Kappa. He recently 
received a grant to study in Ran- 
goon, Burma next year. 

To prevent any member of this 
committee from having a vested 
interest in a particular organiza- 
tion, the CC decided that only 
those who are not involved in the 
financial dealings of any under- 
graduate organization should be 
members of the finance committee. 

This selection requirement met 
with considerable debate within 
the college this week, Jim Scott, 
former SAC president, commented 
that with the present set-up, the 
CCF is "potentially very danger- 
ous. Five people, selected with the 
present requirement in effect, 
could easily lose sight of statis- 
tical facts and worry too much a- 
bout moral questions. Only ex- 
perience can produce a compre- 
hensive understanding of the prob- 
lems involved, and a committee 
such as this, with no experience, 
will have to be doubly dutiful in

U. S. Asks More 
Education Grants 

A recent "New York Times" story 
emphasized the national need for 
more scholarship aid, a problem 
of which Williams has been In- 
creasingly aware in the past few 

Statistics from the U. S. Office 
of Education show that while the 
average yearly price of education 
in 1332 institutions is $1300, 33 per 
cent of scholarship winners re- 
ceive less than $125. The average 
value of a Williams scholarship is 
$912, a figure which will increase 
with increases in tuition costs. The 
total value of college grants is 
set by the trustees at 20 per cent 
of tuition income. 

The 'Times" article pointed out 
that emphasis on increased stu- 
dent subsidies is a result of the 
realization on the part of educa- 
tors that as college costs increase, 
it becomes less possible for a per- 
son to work his way through 
school. The Elsenhower plan, aim- 
ed at giving students more time 
to study, calls for 10,000 scholar- 
ships annually for four years em- 
phasizing science training. Tlie 
average per capita aid is $750. 

More Grants Here 

Student Aid Director Henry N. 
Flynt, Jr. predicts that present 
trends show a rise in the percen- 
tage of students receiving aid due 
to increased tuition ($200 this 
year) which brings more appli- 
cants within the "needy" classi- 
fication. The percentage has risen 
since last semester from 18.6 to 
20.1, and greater increases are ex- 
pected for the fall term. 

According to the "Times", the 
sponsors of national scholarship 
programs are attempting to en- 
lighten public opinion on the col- 
lege financial problem in order to 
effect further increases in student

Vol. LXXII March 14, 1958 Number 12 


By Ernie Inihofj 

The annual Academy Awards for 1957 will 
be presented Marcii 26 l)y the ,\cadi'my of Mo- 
tion Picture Arts and Sciences at the Pantaj^es 
Theatre in Hollywood. 

Based upon the nominations of five candi- 
dates for each category, the election which is 
now takinff place by secret ballot of the more 
than 2000 members of the Academy, will pro- 
duce approximately 30 Oscar winners. 

Once again Hollywood will flout itself be- 
fore the world on the "Big Night." Once again 
the gaudy sjiectaele will mean cinema notables 
in furs and satins, flashbulbs, teen-age mobs, 
cute emceeing, tear-producing aeeejDtance 
speeches and then, also, prizes, honorable men- 
tions, and special awards for the various divi- 
sions of excellence. 

Things have changed some since the first 
Academy ceremonies in 1929 when only the 
"major aspects" such as leading actor, actress, 
film, director were honored. Since those early 
times, supporting artists, film editing, sound 
recording, original songs, foreign movies and 
other categories have received annual recogni- 
tion as well. 

"Finest Industri/" 

The original presentations were closed af- 
fairs, usually in the form of banquets in Los An- 
geles' Hotel Biltmore "Bowl Boom" for Academy 
members and guests only. Long-winded s|)ecches 
praising "the finest industry in the world" and 
such pyrotechnics as refusing to recognize die 
Academy and thus refusing to accept its awards 
are humorously noted in the records. Critics 
and cynics might well laugh at the obvious pre- 
tentiousness of this greatest of all Hollywood 
comic melodramas. Turning to the business side, 
the Oscars may be appraised as significant only 
in enhancing the recipient's future career and 

Stripping away all excess, the statuettes are 
symbolic of the highest praise within the cinema 
industry toward the actors, actresses, directors 
and technicians which comjDose it. 

This is Hollywood criticizing itself, with 
judgements on last year's films being made by 
those who were closest to them. The Academy 
Awards should be taken for what this is worth. 
And it is certainly worth something. 

Not with omniscience, but with a kind of 
calculated reserve are predictions and choices 
herewith made for the winners of the eight main 
Academy Awards; the contenders for which 
were announced February 17. 

The word commonly used, "best", does not 
serve as a very subtle criterion; but in Holly- 

wood's analysis and in this one, the most feasible 
ilistinction is how closely the final product on 
the screen resembles the effect or mood initially 
desired. Predictions of the Academy choices, 
first; jjersonal choices, second. 

Best Film - "The Bridge on the l\iver Kwai"; 

Best Actor - Alec Guiness in "The Bridge on 
the River Kwai"; Same 

Best Actress - Deborah Kerr in "Heaven 
Knows, Mr. Allison"; Joanne Woodward in "The 
Three Faces of Eve" 

Best Director - David Lean for "The Bridge 
on the River Kwai"; Same 

Best Supporting Actor - Red Buttons in 
"Sayonara"; Sessue Hayakawa in "The Bridge 
on the River Kwai" 

Best Supporting Actress - Carolyn Jones, 
"Bachelor Party"; Miyoshi Umeki in "Sayonara" 

Best Foreign Language Film - "Gates of 
Paris"— France; "Gervaise", though not nom- 

Best Song - "Tammy" from "Tammy and the 
Bachelor"; "AH the Way" from "The Joker is 

General Conclusion: While "Sayonara", Mar- 
lon Brando and Joshua Logan are extremely close 
seconds, they should be no more than that. It 
looks like "The Bridge" all the way. 

Wanted: Conformists 

Hi/ John Good 

Sandy Hansell, in accordance with the pleas 
of countless chapel speakers, has challenged the 
v\'illianis Student to assert his individuality. 

llansell indicts the fraternity system for ex- 
erting pressuri's on its members and on fresh- 
men seeking admittance to these secret soci- 
eties. According to the former editor of the 
RECORD, fraternities may force the individual 
to accept a set of principles antithetical to his 

But individuality may be earned too far. In 
"thinking for lu'mself" the individualist may ne- 
glect to think in terms of his associates. Too 
many of our "non-conformists" exert their indi- 
viduality to such an extent that their actions be- 
come an anathema to the society. 

We must remember that we do not live in 
a world of oiu' own, that our actions affect 
the lives of others. By not conforming to the 
norms of society, the individualist rejects those 
jirinciples designed for harmonious living with 
his associates. For example, one who eats slop- 
pily or dresses shabbily repulses those with whom 
he lives. Good manners and good taste are ob- 
served merely out of consideration for others. 

The great religions of the world jilead for 
this kind of conformist; they plead for men to 
follow a pattern of life that will not injure the 
lives of the other people in society. Christianity's 
greatest principle is consideration for others. 

If the fraternities induce a man to conform 
to a set of values designed to im]Drove the in- 
dividual's social character, they are fulfilling a 
pur]5osc. Most of the fraternities urge a ]ierson 
to conform so that he may live harmoniously 
with his fellow men; this is their prime basis for 
existence. If the fraternities have, or should ever 
lose sight of this main objective, then Mr. Han- 
sell's indictment is well founded. 

Happy news!

Letter To The Editor 

To the RECORD: 

With this in mind I should like to strongly suggest that you 
would do well to rid yourselves of the author of your Cinemascooi) 
column. Anyone who thinks that "lllict Interlude" is, "Well worth 
the viewing if you can stand the ballet in between swims," ( REC- 
ORD, Wed. March 5) is quite obviously lacking in the ability 
to evaluate human emotions and the validity of the vicarious ex- 
l^erience which they are able to communicate. He is certainly en- 
titled to his own opinion, but it is equally certain that his opinion, 
lacking the maturity necessary to avoid the cynical outlook of a 
'mammary-mad' youth, should not he voiced in your paper as the 
opinion of Williams College. It does not speak well for the level 
of education here. 

Tony Stout '61 

To the RECORD: 

It was most gratifying to see that "lleferendum's" small ef- 
forts have already paid off in stimulating discussion on the editor- 
ial pages of tlie RECORD. This re|iresents a big step toward full- 
filling "Referendum's" goal of contributing to provacative discus- 
sion of the issues that surround us. 

Since "Referendum" is still young and unfamiliar to most read- 
ers, we would like to take this op])ortimity to clear up two minor 
misconceptions concerning the magazine which seem prevalent: 

( 1 ) Rather than an "article" in any true sense, the half-page 
of writing on the inside front cover is reserved for brief comment by 
some member of the editorial staff. 

(2) Unlike the "liberal" magazine which it unfortunately has 
been assumed to be, "Referendum" was undertaken, as Mr. Ralph 
Renzi stated in his editorial in the latest "Aliunni Review", in tlie 
hope that "a candid discussion of campus problems will do much 
to further their solution" and that similar discussion of world and 
national affairs may also be of some value in years to come. 

It is this hope that "Referendinn" has, with no reflection in- 
tended upon the fine editorial work of the RECORD, attempted 
to establish a medium for expression of opinion in such forms as 
are ordinarily not suited to the letters column of a newspaper.

Becket, Wright, Fisher To Compete 
In Eastern Amateur Ski Tourney 

Three representatives from Wil- 
liams will participate this weekend 
In the United States' Eastern 
Amateur Ski Association downhill 
and slalom-alpine combined cham- 
pionships at Fi-anconia, New 
Hampshire. Co-captalns Jim Beck- 
et and Chip Wright, both seniors, 
as well as junior George Fisher 
are entered in the meet. 

All three men represented Wil- 
liams In the National Collegiate 
Athletic Association championships 
at Dartmouth two weeks ago 
Since the team as a whole did not 
qualify for the IntercoUegiates, be- 
cause they finished sixth and only 
the first five teams were consid- 
ered eligible, Becket, Fisher, and 
Wright entered as non-affiliated 
individuals. Becket came in seven- 
teenth in the downhill, and Wright 
and he finished around twentieth 
in the combined. 

Team's Record 

The varsity ski team has per- 
formed favorably this year in re- 
spect to the size of the schools 
against which it competed and the 
superior facilities of some of the 
more northern ones. At Dart- 
mouth, the skiers finished fourth 
out of eight teams. Here at Wil- 
liams' Carnival, they came out 
fifth of nine. At Mlddlebury, they 
were sixth of ten, and at the Nor- 
wich Carnival, they ended sixth. 



The Eph co-captain will ski at 
Franconia tliis weekend. 

Of all the various modes, the 
team scored most highly in the sla- 
lom and the downhill. At Norwich, 
the alpine team with the addition 
of sophomore. Bill Judson, was 
very successful. In this meet Becket 
captured second place in the 
downhill. At the Easterns, Wright 
finished tenth in the .slalom. Beck- 
et scored in the first ten in the 
downhill, while Fisher cro.ssed the 
line about fourteenth.

By defeating the Freshman in-

Both A. D. and Greylock had 
identical 8-1 records going into

classmen's speed and experience 
enabled them to win handily 26-

day's game would put them in a 
two way tie with A. D. for the 
overall intramural lead, with Chi 
Psi running a tight second. 

On the hockey rink A. D. has 
gained the undisputed title of both 
leagues by defeating Phi Game 2-1

PT Skiers Get Lessons 

Just completed is the first year 
of PT ski instruction at Williams 
in conjunction with the W. O. C. 
The freshman and sophomores ov- 
er the winter have been able to 
gain their required PT credit while 
at the same time gaining at least 
a fundamental knowledge of ski- 
ing technique. 

Organized by Ski coach Ralph 
Townsend the classes have met 
twice a week both on the golf 
course and later at Sheep Hill. 
with eight student instructors ro- 
tating on the job. Led by John 
Palmer '59, the W. O. C. instruc- 
tors are Sandy Fetter '58, John 
Karol '58, Tom Penney '58, Philip 
Wilcox '58, Stan Lawder '58 and 
John Ross '58. 

Systems of Instruction have been 
attempted at times during the past 
twenty years, but have always met 
with limited success due to the 
lack of instructors.

TIMES Comment 

According to Lewis Funke of 
"The New York Times", the play, 
"as a clinical study of the game 
of sex ... is a devastating part of 
the truth." 

The theme was originally pro- 
duced in Italy as a movie in 1954 
and circulated throughout the 
United States where it was banned 
by many religious groups. The 
students of Harvard and Yale 
staged an uncensored production 
of the play last year at Cam-

"Shall Smithies be provided with

during vacation periods? They may

'Dirty Hands' Begins

"Dirty Hands" is a play of Ideas

Inherited too much of the 18th and 
19th century concepts of ven-

Playfair urged that rehabilita-

criminal, and reform take the 
place of these concepts. 

He said that penologists as a 
group are extremely progressive 
and in favor of such change. 
"What blocks the way," he com- 
mented, "is the binding effect of 
public opinion."

Sartre^s ''Dirty RamW 
To Open Here Tonight 

The paradox, then anguish and nausea 

— Photo by Bradford 

Uirty Hands" — a blood-and- i 
nuts murder play by Jean Paul' 
K:uire — will open tonight for a i 
Urcc-day run at the AMT. It is 
d ;i>ci.ed by Giles Playfair. 

A dissident faction of the Com- 
munist Party of a mythical Cen- 
tral European country sends 
youns, idealistic HuKO Barine 
'Played by Robert Vail '58 > to 
shoot party boss Hoederer iBill 
I'Mgar '59 1 who is negotiating for 
a compromise with the nation's li- 
b:-ial and cunseivaUve parties. 

Inner Struggle 

Hugo, employed as Hoederer's 
secretary, tries again and again to 
carry out his mission. He is frus- 
trated by a bomb explosion, by his 
own inner struggles, and finally by 
Hoederer's persuasiveness. 

Toward the end of the play, 
however, Hugo's wife Jessica 
'Anne Playfair) complicates the 
situation in a rapid-fire climax, 
and the play ends as Hugo affirms 
hi^ ability to become the Sartrian 
homme sngage. 

Sartre's brand of existentialism 
pirmcates the plot. The paradox 
ol a man's attraction toward a 
vaaic-system and his drive to re- 
viiit against it hits Hugo with an- 
.i'iiish and nausea. 

Kathy Martin plays Olga, who 
brings Hugo into the party, edu- 
cates him, and tries to kill him. 

John Phillips '60, plays tha an- 
gry Karsky, the nation's liberal 
party leader. Rennie Clark '58 
plays the suave Prince Paul, the 
son of the Regent. Pete Tacy '59, 
and Bill Baker '60, play Hoederer's 
two strong-arm men. 

Pete Schroeder '58, plays Louis, 
chief of the Party's di,ssident fac- 
tion. Supporting roles are filled by 
Ken Vogt '60, Sandy Saunders '60, 
and Walt Brown '60. 

Rushing Revolt 
Strikes Amherst 

Amherst College, plagued with 
I'lshing problems, has reduced its 
finmal rushing period to four days 
tliis year for the first time, 

Tlie faculty, trustees, and the 
!-':aduate - undergraduate House 
Management Committee have au- 
iliorized a move to concentrate the 
ni.shing period in four days pre- 
'■'ding spring vacation. They aim 
•» rninimize "interference with the 
iicademic program." 

In an attempt to reduce "dirty 
ni.shing", the HMC recently put 
into effect a new rule segregating 
freshmen and upperclass dining 
halls in the central eating facility. 
Valentine Hall. Pz'eshmen and up- 
Pevclassmen are also forbidden to 
sit at the same tables in the snack 

Student reaction to this action 
Friday night caused a large num- 
ber of the freshmen to storm the 
upperclass dining hall and to place 
one man at each table In the snack 
•'ar. ignoring the segregation rule 
in that area. 

Ultimaium Issued 
To Sign Stealers 

Dean 'Vincent M. Barnett has 
approved a recommendation of the 
student-faculty Dtscipline Com- 
mittee to "campus" any student 
found to have stolen signs of any 
type in the future. 

The announcement supplement- 
ed the report of the committee by 
student chairman Hassler '59. at 
the College Council dinner meet- 
ing Monday night at the Dean's 
house. Last week, the committee 
discus.sed the case of three sopho- 
mores who had stolen signs, but 
the campusing rule was not en- 
forced because sign stealing was 
thought to have been "quite wide- 
spread" in the past. 

Otlier Action 

Fox '61, reported that four fresh- 
man committees have been estab- 
lished including a Weekend Co- 
ordination group designed to in- 
stitute original ideas and to give 
the entire weekend a to-be-desig- 
nated theme. 

CCF - RECORD Business Man- 
ager Tom Piper '59, was added to 
the membership of the finance 
committee as a non-voting advi- 
sory member because of his ex- 
perience in extra-curricular fi- 
nance. Chairman White announc- 
ed that the proceeds from the sale 
of FM radios will reduce next 
year's CCF tax by 15 cents a per-

Keller To Present 
Education Report 

American problems of educa- 
tion will be the subject of an 
informal report to be given by 
Professor Charier Keller to the 
Ford Foundation Intern In- 
structors Wednesday in Griffin 
Hall. The meeting will be open 
to the public. 

Keller's report will be based 
on both knowledge and experi- 
ence. His two-year career as 
head of the Advanced Place- 
ment Program of the Colle.gc 
Entrance Examination Board 
has made him familiar with 
many facets of the problems 
facing modern educators. Ho 
has also participated in .several 
education conferences, amon;j 
them the recent 13th National 
Conference on Higher Educa- 
tion. This meeting of national 
educators stre.ssed the problem 
of strengthening higher educa- 
tion in the satellite age. 

As head of the history depart- 
ment, Keller has also been in- 
strumental in adding a course 
in the history of American ed- 
ucation 'History 17a i to the 
Williams curriculum. Wednes- 
day's report is part of the ori- 
entation program for teachers 
under Ford Foundation grants.

Mercer Students Urge 
Southern Liberal View 

By John Good 

Two lanky "Gentlemen from 
Georgia" took the stage in a de- 
bate at Jesup Hall Monday and 
made a proposal for liberal "cre- 
ative realism" in dealing with 
southern segregation of the 

Marty Layfield and Bev Bates 
of Mercer University, debating a- 
gainst Jim Scott and Sam Jones 
of Williams, pointed out that sou- 

' them extremism resulting from 
outside pressures is the major bar- 
rier impeding progress towards 
Integration. Their program of "cre- 

I ative realism" entails the urging 
of integration by southern liberals 
on the theory that a southerner 
will sooner listen to a southerner i 
than a northerner. j 

Liberals Martyred 
"However, the southern liberal ' 
is being martyred," said Bates. 
"Unless northerners stop engen- 
dering fear in the southern heart 
so that southerners will support 
extremists, the liberal cannot be 

I heard." Bates pounted out that 

I the southern liberals, as charac- 
terized in the ministers, teachers, 
and lawyers, are currently being 
"run out of the South" for urging 

ACE Asks Increase 
In Teachers' Salaries 

I According to a statement issued 
March 11 by the American Coun- 
cil on Education, teachers' salaries 
should be "at least doubled." 

The statement was prepared by 
the thirteen-member Problems 
and Policies Committee. 

The Council also proposed that 
while new institutions for higher 

[education should be established. 

I this "should not be ... at the ex- 
pense of existing institutions." Al- 
so, "scholarship programs should 
stress . . . graduate as well as un- 

I dergraduate study, and should be 

j accompanied by a parallel system 

' of grants." 


"The South will never accept in- 
tegration by an imposed law." con- 
tended Layfield. "The people of 
the South must come to accept 
the Negro. They can only accept 
him by being made to understand 
his situation by the southern lib- 
eral through lines of communica- 
tion which are now stifled." 

Scott, speaking for the Williams i 
team, urged a system of "selective i 
integration" for attaining the de- 1 
sired end. "The Negro has gained 
in the past only through pushes," 
he said, "and we must moderately 
push this issue to insure the Ne- 
gro's equality in the South. 

The Williams team contended 
that segregation of the Negro is 
based mainly on economic grounds. 

Coffin came to Williams last fall 
r?i)hicing William G. Cole as chap- 
lain. Since he believes that any 
matter tliat affects a person deep- 
ly is ultimately a religious ques- 
tion, he has taken vigorous stands 
on various campus issues. 

In the controversy over compul- 
sory cliap.^l, Coffin staled in the 
Nove.nber 8 RECORD that he be- 
lieved "a chapel service for the 
believer should be an act of dedi- 
cation, for the non-believer an ed- 
ucational experience." Yale does 
not have compulsory chapel. 

At a recent informal panel dis- 
cu':sion at which three students 
explained their reasons for resign- 
ing from fraternities. Coffin stat- 
ed that selectivity in the fraternity 
system "leads to a more narrow 
selection of associates." The fra- 
ternities foster, in his opinion, an 
anti-intellectual atmosphere. 

After graduating from Andover 
I in 1942. Coffin spent a year at the 
i Yale School of Music and then 
entered the Army. At the time of 
his discharge in 1947 he was a 
captain, having served as an in- 
fantry platoon-leader and a liai- 
son officer with the French and 

Yale '49 

He returned to Yale, graduating 
in 1949. After a year at the Union 
Theological Seminary in New York 
City, he entered the government 
service. There he spent three "se- 
cret" years working for the Cen- 
tral Intelligence Agency on Rus- 
sian affairs. He received his B. D. 
from Yale Divinity School in 1956. 
He was chaplain at Andover last 
', year. 

1 Coffin is married to Eva Rubin- 
stein, daughter of concert pianist 
Arthur Rubinstein. She is a for- 
mer ballet dancer and actress, 
having appeared in the Broadway 
production of "The Diary of Anne 
Frank". The Coffins have one 
child, a two-month old daughter, 

Wellesley Cuts Weekly Class Time; 
Tufts Initiates Gut Course Reform 

Serious scrutiny of curricula has 
resulted in a major class schedule 1 
change at Wellesley and a move- 
ment to reform "gut" courses at 

Wellesley's Academic Council 
has expressed its faith in the in- 
tellectual maturity of the student 
body by initiating a program of 
two periods a week. 
The new schedule will leave Wed- 
nesday and Saturday mornings 
free from classes. 

Liberal Ideal 

In a report to the student body, 
the Wellesley administration cited 
increased emphasis on independent 
study, increased control over the 
use of time by the student, and 
"an island within the week for In- 
dividual study and reflection" as 
three major benefits of the new 

Although it is a radical depar- 
ture from Wellesley tradition, the 
new plan will focus more intense- 
ly on the primary goal of a liberal 
education, according to Wellesley 

College authorities. Prior to the 
change, the Wellesley class sche- 
dule was similar to Williams, 

At Tufts the "gut" course may 
soon pass into history, A special 
committee has been created by the 
Student Council to study easy 
courses and minimum academic 

Weekly Report 

This action came in response to 
a powerful campaign on the part 
of the "Tuft's Weekly" which has 
been instrumental in focusing at- 
tention on this question. The 
"Weekly" has started a series call- 
ed the "Gut of the Week" which 
starts off as a catalogue descrip- 
tion of a course and then proceeds 
to give a brief but devastating pic- 
ture of its simplicity. A personal 
column artfully reinforces the ar- 
ticle by a deliberately cynical view 
of the campaign. 

Much controversy has arisen 
over these developments, and re- 
forms by the student government 
seem to be underway.

emphasis i.s placed upon the research oi' thesis 
side of the Ph. D." and that ■the Ph. D. pioij;ram 
is often too liirid and rea;iniented". 

Ualph Winch, Professor of Plusics, stated that 
he did not think that the I'll. D., as a leseareh 
decree, "should he tampered with", lie sii<j;t;ested 
that an alternate device shonki he established 
lor persons who are |>rimaiil\' inti'restetl in teach-

RECORD Interviews 
Harvard Law Students 

Williams iriadiiates at Harvard Law School 
tijeneralK- have uiideru;oiie a tlramatic chaiii^e in 
intellectual attitudes and stnch' habits aecordint^ 
to a recent UEC01{D snr\e\-. 

Harvard law students seemed to find some 
truth in the law school ailaj^e "They scare you 
to death the first year, work you to death the 
second, and bore you to death the third year. 
First vear law student Charlii' Kirkwood "57, is 
stncKiiin ()\i'r twici' as much as he did at Wil- 
liams, kirkwood, a former political eeononu' ma- 
jor, felt his |)ul)lie speakinti and eonstitntioiial 
law courses at Williams lia\e helped his initial 
adjustment to law school, lie iioti'S that classes 
are iiiueli more business-liki', then' is little ent- 
tiiiij;, and students are alwaxs |)repared. 

Altlioiiii;li the iuformation Kirkwood ac- 
(|uircd at Williams has not helped his law stn- 
clics, he belicNcs the best liberal arts preparalion 
for law school is learninir to read thoront^hly 
and abstract vour ideas. Kirkwood now wishes 
he hatl learned to take better noti's at Williams. 
Despite the increased work, Kirkwood claims 
he still has time lor an ade(|uate social life. 

Tlwsi.s Helpful 

N'ernon Scpiires '56, a second vear law stu- 
dent, beliex'cs his political science thesis was 
especialK' <j;ood iirc'iiaration since much of law 
is research. "I did \c'rv little talkiiiLi; about eour- 
;i's out of class," S(|nires recalls of his iinder- 
;iaduate da\s. "I (liink U'illianis was lor me 
iiu;re ol a recital— 1 ne\er ((uestioned as much 
is I could have." The law student considers a 
lilteen pai^e assignment at Harvard bit; since 
he inav S|5end sevi'ral boms thinkint; his wav 
tlir<iu<j;h it. Sipiires feels that extra-curricular ac- 
tivities at Williams are important, bnt warns 
at;aiiist over-extension "If a person wants to do 
well in i;rad school," be savs, "emphasis should 
be on academic. Too nianv extra-curricular ac- 
tivities can take niuch out of vour courses. I 
feel I overextended them. If a student is not 
t;oinir on to t;raduate school, this inav not applv. ' 

\t> Mid-[jc(ir Exdiii.s 

Duaiie Sari^isson .55, who is in his last vear 
ol law school, recommends a broad education 
especiallv in sciences and math to develop the 
abilitv to deal with abstract ideas. .\lthou<j;h 
there art' no tests, (juizzes, or jiapers until the 
end of the vear, Sari;isson finds that the work 
at law school is much more consistent than the 
crisis to crisis studvinu; at Williams durinir hour 
tests. ".At Williams," he observes, "Hie class 
seems to be tijeared to the averai;e stndi'iit. Here 
the class is t^carcd to the top iiiembers. The 
others mav have to spend time ij;ettinij; it on 
their own. ' 

Dnrinif his spare time Sart!;isson assists the 
Harvard Law School Director of .\dmissioiis. The 
ollicial attitude in tlu' admissions ollice is to 
stress ail applicant's academic record and his 
aptitude tests. Sar<;issoii, however, considers 
extra-curricular activities essential for a broad 
education althouirh they are uiiim|)ortant in 
t!;ainin<j; admittance to Harvard Law School. 

CJontrarv to ireneral opinion law students do 
have time for jobs and social activities if thev 
are efficient in their studv habits. As for jret- 
tint; the proper preparation for law school, one 
law student summarized the i^revailinij attitude, 
"If you've learned to study and think at Wil- 
liams, vou'll have no trouble here. I'd say Wil- 
liams offers a student evervthin^ he needs to be 
a success at jrrad school. Whether he takes ad- 
vantaj^e of this, is up to him."

Chi Psi Drops A. D. 
53-51 At N. Adams 

On the strength of a last second 
jump shot by Chubby Jeffrey Chi 
Psi eD'g:d its way into the Indus- 
trial basketball league playoffs. 53- 
51 last Sunday at the expense of 
the A. D.'s. 

The win enabled Chi Psi, spon- 
sored by Unis Grill to move into 
fourth position in the seven team 
league and thus gain a berth in 
the playoffs to be held after 
Spring Vacation. 

Excelsior Printing Co. wound up 
in first place followed by a two 
way tie for second position be- 
tween Dairyland and Alpha Delta 
wlio are spon.sored by the Dinner 
Bell Restaurant. In all likelyhood 
Chi Psi will meet A. D. again in 
the first round of the playoffs as 
Dairyland backed into the second 
place tie by virtue of the A. D. loss.

"A company that plans far ahead gi.^ 
me the chance to work out my future 

f f 

"Pleasing dcsigii i.s no accident," say.s 32-,vear-old TV 
set designer Richard Moiitmeat. "It takes creative 
planning. At General Electric, we're constantly de- 
veloping new product designs — including some for 
products which won't be on the mai'ket for several 
years. Ever since .joining General Electric. I've had 
the opiiortiinity and challenge of working toward the 
designs of the future. As I .see it, a company which 
plans ahead gives me the chance to work out my own 

future, too." 

• • • 

The creative accomiilishments of Richard Mont- 
meat have already brought him widesin-ead recog- 
nition. He was awarded design patents in 1950 and 
1955; he won the Indu.strial Designers Institute 
Award in 1955; and his design for the 1958 General 
Electric 17-inch portable television receiver was se- 

lected for showing in an international design exposi- 
tion in Milan, Italy. 

Progress in pleasing design — making appliances 
more enjoyable to own and use — is an important 
factor in our nation's growing use of electricity and 
in our constantly rising level of living. Planning now 
to satisfy future customers is important not only to 
the continued growth of the electrical industry, but to 
individual progress as well. Opportunity for long- 
range planning is i)art of the climate for self-develop- 
ment which is provided for General Electric's more 
than 29,000 college-graduate employees.

Critic Lauds AMT's 'Dirty Hands'; 
Vail, Ann Chatin Called Outstanding 

By P. Antonie Distler 

'Throughout, a fine perform- 
ance: at times, brilliant' would 
best characterize the Cap and Bells 
— A. M. T. production of "Dirty 
Hands"— the Jean-Paul Sartre 
play which opened at the A. M. T. 
on Wednesday and which closes 

The play, on the whole, was well 
acted. However, there were, as one 
would expect, definite high and low 
moments. High moments came in 
the performances of Bob Vail, as 
Hugo, and Ann Chatin, as Jessica. 
Hugo, a young intellectual of an 
upperclass family was played by 
Vail as sometimes brittle, some- 
times volatile, but always with a 
sense of complete understanding of 
tremendous rents and warpings of 
the character's moral fibre. Hugo's 
moments of strength, weakness, 
triumph and indecision were all 
there and brilliantly portrayed. 

Miss Ann Chatin took the audi- 
ence througli the youthful foolish- 
ness, the egotistical, animalistic 
sexual slants, and the blunt seri- 
ousness of Jessica with the aplomb 
of the polished actress which she 
has proved herself to be in for- 
mer A. M. T. productions. 

In handing out acting Kudos it 
would be impossible to overlook 
the excellent jobs turned in by 
Cathy Martin, as Olga and Bill 
Edgar, as Hoederer. Both roles are 
extremely difficult^-Olga, the 
typical woman communist, Hoe- 
derer, the party boss who is 
shrewd, open-at-times, and force- 
ful. The only point of contention 

these otherwise fine performances 
would be a lack of the necessary 
force in Hoederer to make it pos- 
.sible for him to emotionally and 
intellectually overpower Hugo, as 
he should do in Acts V and VI. 

As for direction Giles Playfair 
has pieced the show together to 
product the effect of steady, hard, 
powerful sledge-hammer covered- 
with-a-generous-supply-of-felt im- 
pacts which culminate in the death 
of Hugo. 

A drama-melodiama, the play 
takes you within the thoughts and 
emotions of its characters. It is 
good theatre.

Registration To Take Place After 
Vacation; Catalogues Available Nov) 

Registration for the 1958 academic year will take i^lace after 
Spring vacation from April 7-11. At this time, 260 sophomores 
vvill choose their major courses from ainoni? the twenty fields 


The registrar's office announced 
that catalogues for next year 
would be available on March 20. 
Students are urged to pick up these 
catalogues before vacation so they 
can decide on their courses dur- 
ing the recess. 

Instructions for registration will 
be available on Thursday, April 3 
in the registrar's office in Hop- 
kins Hall. 


At the present time, the most 
popular major is English, with 14 
per cent of the junior and senior 
classes registered in that depart- 
ment. Running a close second is 
History, with Political Science, 
Physics, Chemistry, and Economics 
following in that order. 

Those students who have main- 
tained high averages in the pre- 
requisite courses will be allowed 
to enlist as candidates for Honors 
Degrees. Aproxlmately 80 are ex- 
pected to do so. 

Robson Family Gives 
Chemistry Fellowship 

Tlie Lawrence E. Robson Fel- 
lowship for the most outstanding 
and deserving chemistry major will 
be awarded for the first time In 
June, 1959. The funds for the fel- 
lowship were set up by the family 
of the late Lari-y Robson who was 
killed in an automobile accident 
earlier this year. 

"The Lawrence E. Robson Mem- 
orial Prize in Chemistry" will be 
a grant of four hundred dollars, 
the winner to be chosen by a com- 
mittee of three from the chemis- 
try department, including the 
chairman of the department. 

At Williams Robson was a 
chemistry major with future plans 
in the medical profession. He was 
a Dean's List student and served 
as recording secretary of Theta 
Delta Chi. 

Advanced Placement 

Advanced placement credit for 
courses taken in secondary school 
was first given by the college to 
students passing special College 
Board examinations two years ago. 

This year for the first time spe- 
cially qualified sophomores were, 
with the consent of the Dean, al- 
lowed to enroll in honors seminars. 

Qualified freshmen entering 
Williams next fall will be allowed 
to complete the requirements for 
a degree in less than four years. 
This may be accomplished by us- 
ing advanced placements credits, 
tailing more than the usual five 
courses, and eaining credits 
through summer school work. 

Special Courses 

Some departments next year 
will offer special courses for ex- 
ceptional students, and students 
will be allowed to enroll in semi- 
nars outside their major field of 

Students also will be allowed to 
study special subjects not ordin- 
arily offered, with a specially as- 
signed member of the faculty. 

These plans are in conjunction 
with a general movement in Eas- 
tern colleges to give the more ad- 
vanced student an opportunity to 
dig more deeply into subjects that 
he is Interested in, both within 
and outside of his major field. 

Pressure had been put on the 
committee this year to choose at 
least one junior adviser from each 
house. A RECORD editorial fol- 
lowed by a recommendation from 
the Social Council suggested that 
the committee make "every effort 
possible" to choose one man from 
each fraternity. 

Every Effort Made 

In a Wednesday RECORD in- 
terview. Dean Cole .said, "When 
the committee began to draw up 
the list, the members decided that 
they would make every effort pos- 
sible to choose one JA from each 
house, but they didn't want to be 
bound to this by an ironclad rule. 
Every effort was made to choose 
the JA's on this basis, but when 
the list got down to the last 40 
or so, the committee realized that 
it would not be possible this year." 

"The committee members, them- 
selves all former JA's, made every 
effort to choose those men whom 
tliey thought would make the best 
Junior Advisers." he remarked. 
Junior Advisers were chosen from 
all but four 

"The committee did restrict it- 
self to a maximum number of four 
junior advisers from any one," Cole added. 

Last Issue 

With this issue, the RECORD 
ceases publication until after 
Spring Vacation. The next issue 
will be published on Wednesday, 
April 9. The Editorial Board, 
the Business Board, and their 
respective staffs wish all REC- 
ORD readers a pleasant spring 
vacation and a happy Easter. 

Keller Gives Lecture 
On Education Change 

Mr. Charles Keller, Brown Pro- 
fessor of History, discussed the 
various steps which have recently 
been taken to speed up the educa- 
tional process, for the "able and 
ambitious student" in a lecture 
Wednesday afternoon. 

Keller, former Director of the 
College Board Advance Placement 
Program, stressed particularly the 
work done in the advanced place- 
ment and early admissions pro- 
grams. The former program allows 
a student to enter college as a 
sophomore after taking college- 
level courses in high school, while 
the latter plan permits the stu- 
dent to condense four years of high 
school into three and thus enter 
college a year early. 

Williams Leads 

Williams, Keller remarked, has 
pioneered in both the advanced 
placement program and in pro- 
viding special courses for excep- 
tional, students. As examples he 
cited the honors program which he 
called "quite good," and the re- 
cent move to, open seminars to 

There has also been, he stated, 
a greater piercing of the "sheep- 
skin barrier" between grammar 
and high school teachers and col- 
lege teachers concurrent with the 
"speed-up" programs.

It is sad that rushuiK and Junior Adisors are 

The Junior Adviser can-if he has the interest 
and capability-be a very important asset to the 
college. His guidance can be a constructive in- 
fluence on a freshman's whole college career. 

His connection with rushing which is not 
strong, but undeniably exists, can diminish the 
value of this asset. For rushing can be bitterly 
competitive, narrow-minded, and quite out of 
touch with mid-century America. 

The Junior Adviser Selection Committee, by 
its recent choices, has recognized this connection. 
A top limit of four JA's i)erhouse was maintained. 
Yet it was unwilling— and this would merely have 
meant a change of four out of thirty people— to 
make the best of an unfortunate situation by mak- 
ing this connection equitable. 

They did not give every house a JA. 

Letters To The Editor 


To the RECORD: 

To whom it may concern, perhaps Messrs. 
Hassler, Morse, and Rose: 

At the expense of incurring your moral cen- 
sine for "selecting"you as the recipients of my 
unchristian criticism, I beg a few minutes. 

To the chagrin of your patron and Saint, 
Carry Nation, perhaps you have by now recon- 
sidered publishing your impatiently expected 
and more plausible polemic against the admin- 
istration for its continual failure to "select" more 
than a )Daucity of the many qualified Negroes to 
admission to Williams. The national ratio of 

Caucasoid to Negroid is about 10 to 1. What 
about the Williams ratio? I 

Perhaps you are wondering if, in the course 
of your moral and ethical crusade, there will 
be enough liatchets for the necks of every exist- 
ing institution, ])erson, and cellular organism, 
all of which, in the last analysis, operate on a 
selectivity principle? But, John, how could thev? 
History must be wrong, for we are told by the 
dissenters "after] serious thought" that "it is an 
unrealistic assumption . . . that man has the right 
to accept those with whom he feels comiiatible 
and reject those for whom he has a distaste . . . 
because it is impossible for man to insulate him- 
self from those whom he does not like." 

Must we now dissolve the family, drop our 
church affiliations, and discard all qualifications 
for citizenship? Are we now doomed to lose the 
freedom of association in addition to the many 
other riglits that are being curtailed? 

But we all must have causes, mustn't we? Are 
you tliree really so arrogant as to imagine that 
in your livs you have been following your ideal? 
Think! Your recent actions suggest the opposite. 

Do you sincerely believe that men are or 
can be what your Utopian and unnecessary inter- 
pretation of Christianity suggests they be? Was 
your individuality so weak that you had to insu- 
late it from your former "co)iforming" fraternity 
brothers? In your future conferences with God— 
I'm certain the editor of "The Tower" can ar- 
range the next one— will you advise Him to 
jettison His selectivity and let us all through the 

Until the day when you blush embarrassing- 
ly at your zealous immaturity, I can only echo the 
classic weariness of good ole' Charlie Brown: 
"Good Grief"! 

John L. Winnacker, '57 


Why can't the combined talents of the Wil- 
liams Outing Club and the Department of B and 
G get on the stick and remove the remnants of 
their Winter Carnival masterpiece in front of 
Chapin Hall? It was their idea— now let them do 
something about it.

'Williams Campus Writing' 
Spark Of Enthusiasm 

by Mack Hassler 

Writers will be heard, even if they must buy a print shop 
and set the type themselves. 

J_,iterally this almost happened here last Monday when copies 
of "Williams Campus Writing" were distributed to tlie fraternitius 
and Baxter Hall free of charge. If this effort was met with Ihu 
same sophistication and nonchalance which caused "Comment" 
to go into debt last year, we should be ashamed. 

Ashamed that tlie Williams student is willing to support or 
create nothing more imaginative than his own houseparty or a 
rushing committee re]jort.

siasm into the tinderbox. 

Varieti/ of Exj)iTssion 

John Ogilvie, creative writing instructor, whose preface leads 
off this anthology points to tlie "variety of interest and expression 
in the work. 

William F. Fox, in "The Trial", has written tlie story of Jcsiis 
before the Sanhedrin. Caiphas comes ofl as the most interestimj; 
character, but more exciting are the brief snatciies of poetic des- 
cription which he experiments with sucli as, "Dawn . . .had slipi^-d 
in under night and spread pink rays across her belly." 

Peter B. Tacy shows himself a very ambitious poet in tlie 
three selections he has included, the most successful of which, 1 
think, is "The Young Bullfighter." Beginning with a concrete 
metaphor of the bull-ring, he modulates into the more general 
subject of a youth's sceptical, faith-seeking predicament. 

Charles C. Orinsby uses the perspective of a confederate 
soldier and the mother of a Union soldier to retell die story of 
Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. His use of the speech, phrase hv 
phrase with reactions of die characters in between, is dramatic 
and successful. None of the characters come aUve except Abe, but 
he is enough. 

Paul M. Watson contributes four poems each of which seem 
to stand well for themselves. Despite one unfortunate title, "Sprint; 
in the Berkshires", and a much too long Christmas Eve letter, his 
last little poem is the most successful lyric in the anUiology. Eii- 
tided "Gramercy Park" and only twelve lines long its ballad-like 
verse and rhythms create a definite and pleasant mood. 
Vivid, but not Deep 

James D. Bell in a short )Mece reconstructs a jiassing incident 
in the life of about a 14 year old boy. His exiicriment with this 
stream of consciousness writing is vivid but, it does not go as 
deeply into the boy's consciousness as one would like. 

David T. Ilildretli' study in "Orange" is a description of a 
teenage girls drunk. If, as the title suggest, he is intending to 
heighten tlie intensity of the ex)Knieiice with this hot color, he is 
employing a very interesting device; but he does not carry it as 
far as the reader is anticipating. 

Raymond A. Montgomery ca|3tures perhaps a prevalent atti- 
tude of the American tourist in Euro)5e in his story "Taken". The 
time spent in giving an impression of the Spanish )5casaiit Carlos is 
well worthwhile for it provides an excellent backdroii for the Am- 
ericans to come speeding through in their Volkswagen. 






by Sum Parkhill 

One year ago tliis week the RECORD printed a letter from 
an Alumnus, who while well nieaninj» was somewhat misinformed 
as to the relative Athletie standings of Williams and Amherst. In 
the light of the earnage whieh Williams played with the Amhei st 
athletic teams earlier this month, to say nothing of the shutout it 
dished up to Wesleyan a week previous to that, the letter struck 
as somewhat humorous. 

In essence the letter by Hamilton B. Wood 10 disparaged the 
training habits of Williams athletes, implying a lack of intestinal 
fortitude necessary to compete on the same level as the Jeffs. To 
Mr. Wood, one year later, I would say that the record of 16 wins 
in 19 contests over the Amherst and Wesleyan weekends, speaks 
for itself, 

In connection with the matter of intestinal fortitude the ])ei- 
formances of Williams representatives in the New England com- 
petitions in swimming and wrestling as well as the National Col- 
legiate Squash Championships, forceably demonstrate that the i 
Williams man is not getting soft around the belly. 

In swimming and s<|ua,sh particularly Williams emerged from 
the ranks of the also rans to gain one tie and one undisputed 
chamiiionship. In addition and jierhaps most exemplary of the 
finest in athletic tradition was the jjerformance of Boh Hatcher at 
the New England wrestling championship. Having not previously 
wrestled a complete match this year due to an injury. Hatcher went 
on to win the heavyweight division in duee overtime matches, in 
one of which he came from behind in the last seven seconds.

To prove the durability of Chev- 
rolet's radical new Turbo-Thrust 
V8,* the tremendous flexibility of 
the new Turboglide transmission,* 
the incredible smoothness of Full 
Coil suspension, we tacl^led the most 
challenging transcontinental rop' in 
the world ~ the 1,000-mile Gen^. .1 
San Martin Highway. To make it 
harder, the Automobile Club of 
Argentina sealed the hood shut at 
Buenos Aires — no chance to add 
oil or water or adjust carburetors 
for high altitude. 

So the run began — across the 
blazing Argentine pampas, into the 
ramparts of the forbidding Andes. 
Up and up the road climbed, almost 
2i miles in the sky! Drivers 
gasped for oxygen at 12,572 feet — 
but the Turbo-Thrust V8 never 
slackened its torrent of power, the 
Full Coil springs smothered every 
bump, the Turboglide transmission 
made play of grades up to 30 
percent. Then a plunge to the 
Pacific at Valparaiso, Chile, a 
quick turn-around and back again.

Friedman Cites Chief 
Problems Of Students 

College psychiatrist, Dr. Cyrus 
R. Friedman, spoke about the 
"Problems of a College Student" 
at a colloquium sponsored by the 
Student Infirmary Committee, 

Distinguishing the college stu- 
dent as the adolescent, Dr. F^'ied- 
man pointed out that the chief 
emotional problem of the student 
is his search for "identity." "He 
wants to feel at home in his own 
body and have an inner certainty 
of being recognized by those about 

Using two fictitious cases as ex- 
amples, Dr. Friedman explained 
the ways in which background and 
environment of the individual in- 
fluences his psychological devel- 
opment. He noted that it is often 
in relations with a girl that the 
student becomes aware of his emo- 
tional problems, usually a lack of 
self-confidence and belonging. 

As for psychiatric treatment a- 
vailable at Williams, Dr. Pi-iedman 
explained that it consists of per- 
sonal talks with the student in 
hopes of helping him cope with 
his problems.

Gargoyle Sends 
Proposal To CC 

The Gargoyle Society has 
proposed major revisions in the 
administration of the Williams 
foreign exchange program. 

In the )'eport currently before 
the College Council for action. 
Gargoyle suggested that a per- 
manent CC committee be form- 
ed to correct what it feels to be 
major deficiencies in the pre- 
.sent loosely-defined program 
for foreign students, 

The projected committee 
would coordinate the finances 
and public relations of the vari- 
ous plans under which scholar- 
ships are presently provided for 
foreign students. The bookkeep- 
ing for the scholarship funds 
would be centralized and an an- 
nual financial report presented 
to the Council, 

In order to keep students in- 
formed about the exchange 
students, their activities and 
backgrounds would be publiciz- 
ed and a smoker held annually 
to afford wider contact with 
the student body. The commit- 
tee would also handle fund- 
raising for the program. 

Kenyon Supports 
Individual Rights 

Civil liberties and the privacy 
of the home were staunchly de- 
fended as Dorothy Kenyon dis- 
cussed "Wiretapping, Bugging and 
Other Invasions of the Home", on 
Monday, April 7. 

Miss Kenyon, a lawyer and for- 
mer judge of the Municipal Coui't 
of New York City, introduced her 
■subject by speaking of the Fourth 
Amendment, which guarantees the 
liome against unreasonable inva- 
sions of privacy. In 1928, when the 
Supreme Court decided that wire- 
in pping is not a violation of the 
Fourth Amendment, Justice Hol- 
me.s stated in his dissenting opin- 
ion that "this is dirty business", 
'udge Kenyon heartily agrees with 

Wiretapping Horrible 

Wiretapping and bugging, the 
u.'ie of hidden microphones, are a 
"horrible and shocking invasion 
"f a person's privacy", yet they 
are used by criminals, law enforce- 
ment agencies and even business- 
men. Federal and some state laws 
have outlawed wiretapping, but 
'•aw enforcement agencies can still 
use it with a court warrant. These 
agencies maintain that they must 
use wiretapping to catch criminals 
who use the same weapons, even 
though they are not allowed to 
use wiretap evidence in courts. 

Privacy Violated 

Miss Kenyon pointed out that 
wiretapping, by its very nature, 
must violate the privacy of people 
that have no bearing on the case, 
that it is a violation of democratic 
"fair play" and should be out- 
lawed completely.

Tao Ho Exhibit Opens In Baxter; 
Artist Cites Williams Development 

By Ted Castle 

An exhibit of 30 paintings and 
drawings by Tao Ho '60, a Chinese 
Bowdoin exchange student, open- 
ed Saturday in the ABC room of 
Baxter Hall. 

"Essence of Life" 

"The purpose of this show," says 
the artist, "is to see my develop- 
ment in the two years I have been 
at Williams. I started painting in 
1950 and developed my own style. 
When I came here, my work was 
very realistic. Now I'm beginning 
to realize my reasons for drawing 
a thing in the way that I draw 
it — to put something down but to 
think about it first. My idea of the 
purpose of art is to show the in- 
visible essence of the visible ob- 

ject I paint. If I hadn't taken art 
courses here. I probably wouldn't 
have had this development." 

Tao feels that the interesting 
aspect of art is not an artist's 
technique but "what niade him 
have that creative inspiration to 
make him able to draw a certain 
thing in the way that he does. To 
put it down is purely mechanical." 
He cites the example of his "Ca- 
pella," a 3-dimensional design 
made of 500 drinking straws glued 
in various triangular shapes. "Ev- 
erybody can glue straws together, 
but the idea behind the design 
is creativity — what makes it art." 

He objects to much of modern 
art because he feels that this 
creative idea is sometimes mass- 
ing. "People look at something and 
say 'How exciting!' I don't know 
what that word means. Art is not 
just to excite — to shock — you, 
there is a plan, an idea which 
caused It to be created which Is 
important." Tao feels that this 
idea is usually unappreciated by 
people who generally view art as 
a wholly visual experience. "If 
art is visual, them if you close 
your eyes there would be no art. 
I think that the idea would still 
be art even if the painting itself 
were destroyed." 

Tao plans to graduate from Wil-

Yet a committee is not enough. 

The problem can be finally solved only by

Letter To The Editor 


To tlu> RECORD: 

lobn Wiiinacker in the last i.ssue of the REC- 
ORD expres.sed some \erv sharp erificisin of 
Messrs. llassler's, Morse's, and Rose's act of re- 
signing fraternity membership. In snjjport of a 
belief in selectivity Winnaeker iiroposed that 
any objection to selectivity on the |Kirt of the 
dissenters is imrealistic and is the kind of ac- 
tion that threatens the order of society. The 
three dissenters also lay claim to reality when 
tlu'N- insist on a man's inabilit\' to insulate him- 
self from those he docs not like. 

It seems that |ohn has an insup|)ortal)le view 
of seleeti\ itv, and that he gra\flv overestimates 
the dissenteis' threat to all institutions. 

It is efloi tless hut not realistic to identify se 
lectivity with the institutions )ohn mentioned— 
state, family, cbnreli and college. But the reader 
of Winnacker'.s letter can object and draw at- 
tention to the fact that we do not select our 
families or state. In most cases we are born into 
these institntions. Not many )3eoi)le exjiatriate 
themselyes just so they can say they are "se- 

As for ehureh membership, it is recognized 
that inember.ship is limited to a common faith, 
hut docs this re((uirenieut guarantee that one is 
insuhited from i)eo))le he does not like'? Does 
'o!>" fi'id insulation in these institutions? Nei- 
t'u'r is it reasonable to assume that the dissen- 
ters' position ill ri'inaining at Williams, dcsjiite 
selectivity of the student body, is a hypocritical 
l")()siti()u since these three gentlemen have no 
inlhiciict' o\cr admissions )5oliev. It apjiears 
then that "all existing institutions" are not 
threatened 1)\' llassler, Morse, and Rose. 

Vl'.i<irant Conlradietiou 

It seems, moreover, that Winnacker's concern 
is not for moral law but rather for curtailinent 
of freedom. In his (incstion "Are we now doomed 
to lose the freedom of association?" isn't there 
a flagrant contradiction of his love for freedom 
since he taunts the nsi' of indiyidual conscience 
and subse(|iR'nt action. Rather than deprive any- 
one of freedom of association llassler, Morse, 
and Rose were expressing a protest against policy 
for which they were partially resiionsible as 
menibers of houses. 

History is full of the acconnts ol protesting 
men; but the story does not stop there, for there 
are just as many accounts of intolerance. In most 
ethical codes, respect for belief is considered in- 
telligent and fair.

In churches he may pass, 
But be would neyer throw a stone

Medical School 

Harvard Medical School is one of the most difficult schools 
in the coimdy to enter. Each year Williams usually sends a feu 
students there. The RI^CORI) was able to interview two of these 
stiulcnts, who expressed \astlv different ideas about the Ix^st pre 
paration (or Harvard Medical School. 

jiiii C;olhcrg '55 contended that a medical student should lia\( 
a liberal arts to avoid getting in a rut in medicine. "I h:ul 
enough .science courses c\eii though I majored in |)oIitieal ecoiio 
my," he stated. CJolberg advi.sed medical .school candidates to (!<. 
independent honors research which teaches the student how to 
tackle an indiyidual prohleni. Intellectual matiiritx' resulting from 
this type of work is the key to success in medical school, (Jtilbei- 

Dick Eearon '57, who majored in English, stated, "I wish I 
had taken more .science at Williams." Fearon noted his adjiistuuni 
to a new type of concentratetl study has left him without any oiil 
side interests. 

As lor the army and pre-inedieal .school work the situation i

Trustees Against Soph 
Driving Since 1928 

The freshman proposal for 
sophomore driving permission on 
w cekends endorsed by tlie CC last 
weolc becomes another part of the 
past history of driving at Williams. 

Principal action that has been 
I alien previously by the Board of 
Trustees has mainly concerned it- 
self with the problem of college 
i)arking facilities, although there 
;ire three instances of Trustee rul- 
ings or resolutions prior to 1950 
,in student driving. 

In June of 1928 there was a pro- 
posal by a member of the Board to 

uspend driving permission for all 
-I udenls. Apparently it had been 
11! effect for a number of years 
prior to 1928 for juniors and sen- 
iors. The Ti'ustees ruled at that 
lime that, although the Board rec- 

1 nized the abuses present, "no 
iirastic action sliould be taken li- 
miting the personal privileges of 

lie undergraduates." A copy of 
I lie vote was sent to all parents. 

A meeting of February, 1929 con- 
sidered a proposal to extend the 
use of automobiles to all under- 
graduates. The resolution was de- 
feated. Again in 1941, a Trustee 
proposed the extension of driving 
and automobile privileges to 
sophomores who had 2 B's and 3 
C's. The vote of the Board, how- 
ever, was to maintain the current 

Developments since 1950, with 
-he serious curtailment of public 

ransportation in the area has in- 
creased the pressure for more lib- 

ral ruUngs. There have been three 
-successive Freshman Council pe- 
lit:ons since 1955 for sophomore 
driving permission. Two years ago 
the faculty voted in favor of the 
action but the final Trustee vote 
.vas negative. 

In 1956 the Trustees did grant 
sophomores driving privileges on 
Houseparty and special weekends.

Eph Grad Wins 
Critics' Acclaim 

"The Cross of Baron Samedi", 
the first novel of Richard Dohr- 
man '49, has received high acclaim 
by tire critics. Frederic Morton, in 
the New York Times of March 30, 
de.scribed the work as ". . .cryptic, 
hypnotic stews of white and black, 
of civilization and darkest Afri- 
ca . . .," 

A theme of evil, represented by 
the voodoo leader, Baron Samedi 
and the innate darkness of his 
Haitian realm, overcoming the in- 
sufficient moralities of civilized 
man throughout. 

Dohrman's style of writing has 
the intense shadowy, mystic, ropy 
flavour as the Haitian voodoo- 
land itself. Orville Prescott, in the 
New York Times of March 26, 
cited "... a destiny to his lan- 
guage, a deliberate soft thickness 
of texture . . .," a "coiled and 
knotty" feel, rich in background 
and a continuously high pitch of 

New Purple Knights 
Play Modern Jazz 

L. to R. HERTEL, 
Purple Knights. 

A new and fresh sound in col- 
lege jazz is making the rounds in 
the New England college circuit. 
Williams Purple Knights Quintet, 
a versatile jazz and dance band, 
has established itself as a promi- 
nent musical group in less tlian a 
Last May the Quintet was or- 

' ganized when the larger Purple 
Knights Dance Orchestra dis- 
banded. Three members of the 
defunct group, Tom Hertel '59, Al 
White '60, and Bill Paul '60, de- 
cided to carry on the Purple 
Knights name with an entirely 
different type of band. 

Under the leadership of Hertel 
a smaller, more versatile, and eas- 
ily booked aggregation was formed, 
when trumpet player Ed Brash '60, 
and drummer Dick Moore '60, were 
added. With Hertel on piano, Paul 
on bass, and White on alto, tenor, 
and baritone saxophones the small, 
efficient unit they wislied was 

After a limited number of book- 
ings in the spring of 1957 and 

I much greater successes through- 
out last fall and the present year. 


leader Tom Hertel noted, "we've 
I Versatility — the Key 

The Purple Knights have "ar- 
rived" the hard way. Featuring 
modern jazz in colleges accustom- 
ed to the traditional strains of 
dixieland jazz, the band has pleas- 
ed audiences at such places as 
Bryn Mawr, Smith, Middlebury, 
and R. P. I. 

Hertel cites versatility, however, 
as the key to the Knights success. 
"Being able to play a good 'soci- 
ety' dance sound, hard-driving 
jazz at the philharmonic, and mo- 
dern jazz also has enabled us to 
play every type of engagement 
from a Junior Prom al Bryn Mawr 
to casual fraternity affairs on the 
Williams campus," commented 

In the very near future the Pur- 
ple Knights Quintet is scheduled 
to appear at the University of 
Maine, Hamilton, Middlebury, and 
a New Canaan, Connecticut, Can- 
cer Benefit. Other engagements 
later in the spring are expected 
to be followed by an extended sum- 
mer engagement on Cape Cod.

Baseball Team Drops 
Five Southern Games 

Travcllinu; south diiiiiii^ .s|iiiiiif vacation, the \aisitv baseball 
team en^ancd in six contests with three difterent opponents as 
they compiled a 1-5 record. 

The opening contest ai^ainst Elon ('olleij;e in North Carolina 
lonnd tiie Ephs unprepared to lace a strong team already 
untler wav in its rei.^nlar season schedule and dropped 
cision. Following this game on 
Monday the 24th. rain plagued the 
team for the next three days, 
forcing them to play two double 
headers on Friday and Saturday 
with Pheiffer College. On Friday 
the team dropped both seven inn- 
ing games by 6-0 and 6-4 scores 
and repeated the performance on 
Saturday 7-6 and 5-0 in two more 
abbreviated contests. 

The team moved north on Sun- 
day and was rained out in a sche- 
duled game with Rutgers. Tues- 
day a break in the weather allow- 
ed the team to grab their only win 
of the trip over Upsala 2-1. 

Although the record is far from 
impressive, coach Bobby Coombs 
thought "the team made a good 
showing on the trip." The pitch- 
ing started off weak as expected 
but. Coombs felt that the boys 
who were able to pitch on two 
different occasions showed defi- 
nite improvement, the second 
time out. Eight pitchers made the 
trip and from these Coombs de- 
clined to name a top man but 
said his number one pitcher would 
come fi-om a group of five or six 
irc'.uding Bill Tote, Ned LeRoy, 
Don Lischer, J, B. Morris, Bob 
Bucher or Bob Rediske.

On their annual practice trip

Travelling to Lexington, Va. on 
March 23, the team had two days 
of practice before playing W and L 
on the latter's field. The game was 
a hard fought contest between the 
two evenly matched teams. Pull- 
ing ahead by a 4-3 score midway 
through the third period, the Ephs 
began to slack off on the attack, 
as Washington and Lee moved in- 
to a 6-4 lead. The final score read 
8-6 in favor of the opponents.

Tobin, Hirshman Lead Spring Trip 
As Tennis Squad Has 2-2 Record 

By Bob Pyle 

The varsity tennis team won 
two and lost two matches on the 
spring trip. Two matches were 
rained out during the Southern 
practice session. 

After one day's practice, the 
team defeated William and Mary 
8-1 at Williamsburg. Two days of 
rain which cancelled the first of 
two matches with the University 
of North Carolina followed. 

Then the squad suffered a se- 
vere trouncing by the powerful 
Tarheels, 14-0. Last year at home, 
the Ephs had defeated them 5-4. 
At Charlottesville, several closely 
contested matches were lost as 
the team fell 6-3 to U. Va. Tlie

Letter Criticizes Williams Publicity; 
Wants Change In College Viewpoint 

To the Editor: 

A fr('(|M<'iitly disciLSsed and seldom acted ujioii topic at Wil- 
liams over the past lew years lias been that of publicity, specifi- 
cally s|)orts ]iul)licitv. Despite the industrious attempt of a few in- 
tercsteil in(li\ icluals to iui|)rove upon this condition, the jiroblem 
lias reuiainetl a jrra\e one, and in the lif^lit of it-cent administra- 
tion ap|)oiutuu'iits ill other small collej^es, the situation at Wil- ; 
liams will prohablv be e\'eii jrraver in the future. j 

The i)lame lor the jireseiit state of affairs can be traced to; 
two sources: ; 

(1) The administration, whose position and policy on puhli- 1 
city has been poorly thouj.;lit out, disori.iaiii/.ed, and imjiractical 
under its present status, and 

(2) The student body, who, with the exception of the few 
individuals refeired to abo\c, show a (general disinterest toward.s 
this condition. Duriut; the \ydst four years the "News (Sports) Bu- 
reau" was seldom manned by sludi'iits who had the interest of 
the collcfre at heart, the result beint^ that many of the athletic '• 
contest (aside from football) were written up with a very small 
dei^ree of accuracy. 

SufTp-steil ways to eliminate some of the problems are as 

(1) The creation of an office which would deal solely 
with the publicity of the collei^e, headed by an admiiiislrator who 
had no other duties and obligations. This would be a full time job 
for one person. 

(2) A change in the administration's \iewpoiiit from that 
of the status c|uo to one where they would acknowledj^e that an 
elfective publicity pr()<j;ram would raise the prestiife ol the school 
and in the loiif^ rim pay di\idends for the moncN' that the new 
"office " would cost now. 

(3) This |)ublicity office, in order to be siiccesstul, would 
need to be manned by interested and capalile stiulents who are 
not interested solely in i^ettins^ some money Irom the collei^e or in 
huildiii'j; up an im|n('ssi\e list of extracurricular acti\ities. 

The time has come to stop talking about the problem. Some- 
thiiii; should be done iiisteatl. The recent change of the "News Bu- 
reau" to the "Sports Bureau" has not proNcn succi'ssful, e\ce])t in 
the occasional instances of considerable indi\idual effort. lmio\a- 
tions like student-sponsored dinners for pios|)ecti\'e freshmen are 
a step in the ritilit direction. Most Williams men are iirond of their 
colleije and thi'v should take an acti\"(! part in makiiisi; it better

he said were hitting the ball hard, 
but right at the fielders. 

Coombs will go along with the 
veteran infield of Hedeman, Ka- 
gan, McAlaine and Power at least 
for the present, but the outfield 
is a tossup among several candi- 
dates. Selection will be based pri- 
marily on defensive ability since

Moliere Farce To Open Tuesday For 2-Night Rm; 
Quinson, Eva Cofiin To Star In 'Malade Imaginaire 

By Bill Edgar 

Moliere's "Le Malade Imagin- 
aire" will be presented at the AMT 
Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. 

Director John K. Savacool, of 
the Williams French Department, 
calls the 17th century masterpiece 
a study in character with the form 
of farce. 

The hypocondriac Argan— one 
of Moliere's most famous crea- 
tions — seeks attention from others j 
by pretending he is sick: a study 
in loneliness and man's ridiculous 
efforts to escape from it. 


Yet the play takes the form of 
Italian "Comedia dell'arte" i which 
Savacool translates as "horse- 
play") with stock characters, pan- 
tomine interludes, a doggerel "in 
illation" in fake Latin, and satiri- 
cal songs. 

Starring in his fourth appear- 
ance in Williams French plays is 
Bruno Quinson '58, as Argan. Eva 
Coffin, veteran of Broadway and 
wife of Williams College's chap- 
lain, will appear as Argan's wily 
servant Toinette. Also billed are 
Bernard Lanvin '58, (Cleante), 
Hansi van Arlen (Argan's daugh- 
ter Angelique) and Nancy Hirsche 

The plot, though complex, has 

a simple outline; when he discovers 
he can solve life's problems by 
playing sick, Argan tries to marry 
off his daughter to a doctor. He 
is frustrated by Toinette and the 
natural reluctance of Angelique. 

Moliere's last play, "Le Malade 
Imaginaire" acquired a legendary 
character at its third presentation 
in 1673. Moliere himself, playing 
Argan, actually fell sick on stage. 
He struggled through the perform- 
ance, was carried home, and died 
soon afterwards. 

The Williams production isets 

lames \\. liuriis, Professor of Political Science and pri/.e winniiiff author, announced Thurs- 
day that he is a eaiididate for the Democratic nonnnation for Congress in the predominately Re- 
piiblieaii first Coni^ressional District of Ma.ssachiisetts. 

Burns must first win the Democratic nomination in the September jirimary. As yet he knows 
of no primary opposition, "hut it is possil)le that some mi<j;ht develop". Then he will have to face 

incumbent Republican John W. 
Heselton, a 14-year member of 
Congress in a district which has 
not seen a Democratic Congress- 
man since 1898. 

"I don't think the odds are a- 
gainst me," Burns stated. "No dis- 
trict is so safe for the incumbent 
that he can ignore endless unem- 
ployment, acute school problems, 
industrial decline, mounting tax- 

Jobs, Education, Security 

In a prepared statement Burns 
promised a practical campaign 
based on "the most urgent local 
problem" — jobs, "the most import- 
ant long term problem" — educa- 
tion, and "the most serious prob- 
lem, now and always," — national 
security and world peace. 

r Burns observed that "Our pre- 
1 sent Congressman is not a good 
I representative. He has become cold 
and inaccessible ... I promise that 
if elected I will be available every 
day of every week, every week of 
every year to discuss problems 
with my constituents." 

"Exciting Experience" 

Burns noted that "to jump from 
the Ivy Tower into the political 
arena is, of course, an exciting 

"At the very least, I expect to 
get a practical education; at the 
very most, I hope to have the 
chance to put into effect in Wash- 
ington some of the ideals about 
government I have long held. 

"As a teacher at Williams since 
1941, I naturally look forward to 
making the problem of education 
one of my key planks in my cam- 
paign. To improve our schools aird 
attract the best people into teach- 
ing ... we must have real partner- 
ship between the local, state, and 
national governments."

Insurance Officer 
Discusses Outlook 

"Competition and Regulation In 
the Insurance Industry" was the 
subject of the speech given April 
9th in 3 Griffin by Mr. Radford 
Smith, Jr. Mr. Smith, Executive 
vice-president of the Insurance 
Company of North America, was 
introduced by Professor Sheahan 
of the Economics department. 

Mr. Smith mentioned that the 
new look in insurance is dynamic 
and he encouraged young men to 
enter this field. In demonstrating 
the industry's tremendous growth, 
he pointed out that the insurance 
companies now have assets greater 
than the value of all farm land 
and buildings. 

Control Problem 

Most of Mr. Smith's talk was a 
summary of growth and control 
of the industry from pre-Civll War 
to the present. Specially treated 
were anti-trust cases and the pre- 
sent attempts of tariff fcompanies 
to control the rates of those com- 
panies who would let rates be es- 
tablished by competition.

Republican John VV. Heselton, incumbent 
Rc]iresentative from the First Massachusetts Dis- 
trict, will opjjose Burns in this fall's Congres- 
sional election. 

He has been in Congress for 14 years, rep- 
. resenting a constituency which has not sent a 
' Deinocrat to Washington for over 60 years. 

He has never been opposed for the Repub- 
lican nomination for his office, and has piled up 
a great deal of seniority on House Committees. 
In his first term he was appointed to the House 
Committee on the Post ()fficc and Post Roads. 
In the 8()th Congress, Heselton became a mem- 
ber of the House Committee on Interstate and 
Foreign Commerces. 

A subconnnittee of this committee is currently 
investigating "improjicr practices" of the Federal 
Communications Commission in connection with 
a Miami television station. 

Said Burns about the role of Heselton on that 
suheominittee: "1 went to Washington two weeks 
ago to look into the reliability of widespread 
newsjiaper reports that our Congressman had 
been extremely active in trying to stop the in- 
vestigation of the Federal Communications Com- 
mission that has already resulted in the resigna- 
tion of one FCC commissioner. I was told by the 
mf)st reliable persons in position to know that 
these newspaper reports were correct." 

Heselton graduated from Amherst with high 
grades and studied at Harvard Law School. In 
1931 he came to Massachusetts from Maine 
(where he was boni in 1900) to work for the 
law firm of Stoddard, Bull and Bartlett. 

In 1937 he set up his own offices and short- 
ly became district attorney for Franklin and 
Hampshire counties in the northwest part of the 

Letter To The Editor 


To the RECORD: 

The Gargoyle jiroposal mentioned in your 
i.ssue is indeed an interesting one. Mr. Pelhani's 
comments and your short editorial on tlu? jjropo- 
sal both shed some light on the issue. 

In the past, when students from abroad went 
to study outside their own coimtries, they were 
going abroad to study the system which was in 
force at home and to ac(|nire the best and some- 
times the only qualifications for workhig within 
that system. 

.'\t the present time tiiis is no longer the case. 
Many of these countries now have their own in- 
stitutions of learning, some of which command 
world-wide resjiect. Also it is no longer impera- 
tive for students from abroad to accjuire their 
education in foriegn countries in order to be of 
any significance at home. While the value of 
foreign education still commands the highest 
respect and attention at home, it is no longer the 
only key to high positions of res|5onsibility and 

Investigators Role 
The student who comes from abroad to study 
at Williams or at any other American school, or 
the American student who goes abroad lor his 
education, is assuming a role not only of student 
but of an investigator, observer and a full partici- 
jjant in the society and the life he is seeking to 
fintl out more about. He is coming in order to in- 
vestigate a different social, economic and politi- 
cal system, a different cultm-al system, and dif- 
er(-}it iiislitutions and methods of education. He 
lop^'s that com|oaris()H will suggest new ways to 
deal with different |or()bIems of life and society, 
and that a knowledge of the American system and 
of the methods and a|)proach of American educa- 
tion will aid him in solving |)roblems which in- 
volve both. 

Being a foreign student myself, I feel it is 
time tiiat the college community, and the student 
body in ]iarticular, take the initiative in solving 
the problems which exist. 

These jiroblems can be summarized as fol- 

1 ) The problem of admitting, suiijiortiug 
and financing a greater number of foreign stu- 
dents than foiMid at present at Williams. 

2) The problem of maintaining a constant 
and continuous and positive contacts between 
foreign students and the college community at 

3) The contributions must not be one-sid- 
ed. Foreign students Uiemselves must take more 
responsibility in assisting directly and indirectly 
their fellow American students to learn more 
about them. 

The solution to the first problem must come 
from not (july the students who have been the 
main source of assistance in the past, but the Ad- 
ministration itself should provide for more finan- 
cial assistance to allow at least twice the num- 
ber of students to come from abroad as we have 
now. Today we have half as many foreign stu- 
dents as Amherst or Wesleyan. 

The second problem is more difficult and 
complex. The following suggestions arc offered 
for consideration : 

1) Certain interested [uniors should be 
chosen each year to act as "advisers" to foreign 
students. These individiuils are not to be con- 
fused in their position with the present J.A.'s, or 
the faeidty advisers. Their roles would be more 
intimate, personal and more or less on social- 
academic basis. The object and aim of their as- 
sistance is mainly to help the students froin a- 
broad to adjust to his new life and to prevent 
him from turning into an island in the midst of 
a strange land. 

2) Each house on campus could im'tiate 
a ]Dlan through which these students are invited 
to attend either individually or as a grouts on 
various occasions to participate in their social life. 
Freshmen among foreign students must be given 
special attention despite the barrier that exists 
today because of the Rushing System. Faculty 
and members of the college coinmunity, as well 
as alumni of Williams near the campus, .should 
be informed annually of the foreign students 
and encouraged to invite these students to their 
homes as often as possible, especially during va- 

3) Students, various organizations on cam- 
pus and all academic and social units should 
and must allow students from abroad greater 
opijortunity to participate fully and positively in 
the school activities, despite the obstacles which 
should be anticipated in their 

Adinittedly these suggestions are far more 
ambitious than what can be allowed under prc- 
.sent cncumstanccs. It is hoped, however, that 
the CC will find some of them useful and help- 
ful m its present study of this crucial problem.

{By the Author of "Rally Round the Flag, Boytt "and, 
"Barefoot Boy with Cheek") 


Onoe again the makers of Marlboro Cigarettes, bless their tat- 
tooed hearts, have consented to let me use this space, normally 
intended for levity, to bring you a brief lesson in science. 

They are generous, openhanded men, the makers of Marlboro, 
hearty, ruddy, and full of the joy of living, as anyone can tell 
who has sampled their wares. In Marlboro you will find no 
stinting, no stinginess. Marlboro's plea.sures are rich, manifold, 
and bountiful. You get a lot to like with a Marlboro-filter, 
flavor, flip-top box, and, in some models, power steering. 

The science that we take up today is called astronomy, from 
the Greek words astro meaning "sore" and nomy meaning 
"back". Sore back.s were the occupational disease of tlie early 
Greek astronomers, and no wonder! They u.scd to spend every 
blessed niglit lying on the damp ground and looking up at the 
sky, and if there's a better way to get a sore back, I'd like to 
hear about it. Especially in the moist Mediterranean area, 
where Greece is generally considered to be. 

Lumbago and related disorders kept astronomy from be- 
coming very popular until Galileo, an unemployed muleteer of 
Pamplona, fashioned a homemade telescope in 1924 out of 
three Social Security cards and an ordinary ice cube. What 
schoolboy does not know that stirring story-how Galileo 
stepped up to his telescope, how he looked heavenward, how 
his face filled with wonder, how ho stepped back and whispered 
the words heard round the world: "Let them eat cakel" 


Well sir, you can imagine what happened then! William 
Jennings Bryan snatched Nell Gwynne from the shadow of the 
guillotine at Oslo; Chancellor Bismarck brought in four gushers 
in a single afternoon; Enos Slaughter was signed by the Ihm- 
seatio League; Crete was declared off limits to Wellington's 
army; and William Faulkner won the Davis Cup for his im- 
mortal Penrod and Sam. 

But after a while things calmed down and astronomers began 
the staggering task of naming all the heavenly bodies. First 
man to name a star was Sigafoos of Mt. Wilson, and the name 
he chose was Betelgeuse, after his dear wife, Betelgeuse Sigafoos, 
prom queen at Michigan Stat« from 1919 to 1931. 

Then the Major Brothers of Yerkes Observatory named stars 
after their wives, Ursa and Canis, and Witnick of Harvard 
named one after his wife. Big Dipper, and soon all the stars 
were named. 

Astronomers then turned to the question: is there life on 
other planete? The answer was a flat, unequivocal no. Spectro- 
scopic studies proved without a doubt that the atmosphere 
on the other planets was far too harsh to permit the culture of 
the fine tobaccos that go into Marlboro Cigarettes ... And who 
can live without Marlboro?

Sports Corner 

hi/ Sam Parkhill 

In answer to the letter on college jjnblicity submitted by R. T, 
Man- '57, and printed in the April 9 issne ol the RECORD, News 
Bureau president, Chnek Dmikel, '59 had this to say; "Mr. Man- 
deals with an ini|}()rtant iirohleni at Williams and his evaluation of 
the present situation has considerable merit. However, his insinua- 
tions about the attitude of News Bureau members in the past four 
years aijpear both unfounded and erroneous." 

rnblieity Director Raljih Renzi commented on the letter by 
Marr, "the letter makes sense, b\it it is a (|uestion of dollars and 
cents. The administration is fully coj:^niy.ant of the problem but 
aren't ready to take money from other areas to su))port a full time 
sports publicity director. Good coveraj^e of sports," Renzi stated, 
■'is impossible, however until a man is jMit on the job full time." 

While we are on the subject of publicity, it seems apparent 
that the lacrosse team is destined to draw its siiare of recoj^nition 
to Williams, perhaps this year and certainly next, with one if. 
This if concerns the selection of a lacrosse coach to succeed [im 
Ostendarp. Lacrosse is definitely on the ujiswing and with the 
pr()|5er coaching could reach a top standinjr in thi' next year or 
two. Thus it is imperative that the new ment<)r be more than just 
someone to fill die j^ap, but rather a man with an established re- 
putation as a lacrosse coach, who can contimie to l)uild on the 
irood material already here. This is the tmniuff jioint for lacrosse. 

Results of the s]irin^ football intrasqnad panics in the south 
slilj leaves uncertain what coaches plan to do on the |)oints after. 
The new rule allows a team to fj;ain two points by rushinj^ the ball 
on the P.A.T. and the conventional one point for a kick. In four 
practice panics at Duke, North (Carolina, South Carolina and 
Wake Forest twenty touchdowns were scored but the toe method 
(if conversion was used but twice. Wake Forest didn't even have a 
kicking formation, (loaches aujreed however this was no indication 
iif their tactics next lall and most stated it would depend on the 
eireunistances of the ffame.

Eph Tennis Squad Opposes Tigers 
In Season's First Regular Contest 

The varsity tcnni.s team will meet Princeton, tomorrow in the ref^ular match of the .season. The Princetonians, hoasting a 
strong, deep squad, are favored. 

Since the Ephs did not play Princeton last year, their com- 
plete lineup is not known. Among the opposition is likely to he 
an ex-New Jersey junior champ 

from Coral Gables, Florida. 

Coach Chaffee will rely on Cap- 
rain Karl Hirshman, Tom Shul- 
man, Joe Turner, Ernie Fleish- 
man, and Greg Tobin for the Ephs.

Purple Key Banquet 
Slated For May 18 

On May 18, 1958 the Purple Key 
Society will sponsor the second 
annual Block W dinner, in the 
iroshman dining room of the Stu- 
dent Union. 

As guest speaker the Purple Key 
has been able to secure the ser- 
vicos of Otto Graham, former 
quarterback for the Cleveland 
Browns, National Football League 
team. Graham retired from pro- 
fessional football at the end of 
the 1955 campaign after nine years 
with the Browns. 

The purpose of the Block W din- 
ner is to honor all those at Wil- 
liams who have won a letter in a 
varsity sport as well as the mem- 
bers of the Purple Key selected to 
serve next year. Attendance is re- 
stricted to lettermen, coaches and 
special guests only. 

At the Banquet monograms will 
be presented to the letterwinners 
in all sports, certificates having 
been presented at the individual 
sports banquets. 

This is Boots, the Williams Club Cat. He is one 
of the fattest cats in the United States and this is 
why: he dines on a daily diet of vanilla ice cream. 
Now if that is what the Williams Club feeds its 
cat, imagine what you will be able to order . . . 
in the GRILL ROOM. Men only. Pine-panelled. Bar 
in corner. Piled-high steaming plates. Rim-full frosty 
glasses. Efficient waiters. Or in the "girll" room. 
For you and .vour date. Intimate. Flatteringly lit. 
Voluptuously carpeted and upholstered. Sexy. And 
no finer food and drink in NYC. Wait. That is not 
all. Did you know that the Williams Club is one 
of the most reliable, fleetest-footed, theater-ticket 
services in New York? It is. When you come right 
down to it, the WC is an ideal spot for The Big 
F,vening to begin. Come right down to it soon. 
Address: 24 E. 39 Street, just off Madison Av. 





Ernie Fleishman '59, and Chris 
Schaefer '59, were elected co-cap- 
tains of the varsity squash team 
for the 1958-59 season at the an- 
nual squash banquet March 19. 

Fleishman played in the number 
seven slot on the varsity this year, 
compiling a 6-4 record. Next year 
he moves up to four. In addition 
to squash, he plays varsity tennis 
and is president of Phi Gam fra- 
ternity, a Junior Advisor and sub- 
scription manager of the Williams 

Schaefer played number nine, 
finishing the season also with a 
6-4 record. He will move up to five 
next year. Last year he played on 
the varsity tennis team. 

Next Year's Team 

Coach Clarence Chaffee's var- 
sity squash team next year will 
oc bolstered by three sophomores. 
Greg Tobin, who played number 
.,wo this year will move up to one, 
while John Bowen and Pete Beck- 
with go from fifth and sixth to 
the second and third spots, re- 

The racquetmen will be out to 
improve this year's seven and three 
record despite the loss of their 
captain and number one man, Ol- 
lie Stafford. 

Union Ends Spring Drill 

A news release from Union Col- 
lege stated that the Garnets had 
completed their Spring football 
practice. Coach Keith Doyle, who 
views the '58 season with optimism, 
revealed that the scrimmages have 
produced about thirty promising 
candidates for next fall's squad. 

The ten-day practice which 
orought out fifty candidates con- 
centrated on fundamentals. The 
new coach will have to rely heav- 
ily on green ballplayers because of 
Che high graduation losses. Only 
nine lettermen will return next 
September for practice. Doyle 
believes that he will have two 
equally good backfields.

Interest In "Eggheads' 

liicicasiiit,' coiicc-rii ovor Aiuoiicaii educatioii has stimulati'd 
a growing iiiti'ii'st lor iiitt'lli'ctual effort and an improved attitude

certed I'ffort is dexcloping to make tlie American piihhe reahzc 
that the eggliead may l)e a key man in the fight for survival . . . "

Parents' Weekend 

Parents' Weekend will be the 
weekend of May 10. Originally 
scheduled for the weekend of 
April 26, it was postponed in 
hopes of better weather. An- 
nouncements and schedules for 
the weekend have been sent to 

Parents are Invited to attend 
their sons' classes Saturday 
morning and the student musi- 
cal, "Ballyhoo", which will be 
presented Saturday evening. A 
special chapel service will be 
held Sunday morning. 

Improve Teachers' Salaries 

In addition the council asked 
support for several measures which 
it felt necessary to raise the stan- 
dard of education in America. A- 
mong these were the provisions 
that the salaries for teachers and 
scientists be "doubled". It also ad- 
vocated that "Scholarship pro- 
grams stress . . . graduate as well 
as undergraduate work." 

The council recommended in- 
creased amounts of money for 
fundamental research and "other 
forms of scholarly activity". Nev- 
ertheless, it advocated local and 
state aid as opposed to federal 
grants. The latter is to be used 
only as a supplement to the others. 

Another attack on anti-intell- 
ectualism was delivered in a special 
report on education by fourteen 
editors of alumni publications. 
This indicates that society is be- 
ginning to find it necessary to re- 
spect the educated man in order 
to produce him.

This is in no wise undemocratic,

Miss Moore To Read 
Poems At B-Town 

Marianne Moore, the brilliant 
American poetess, will deliver a 
Hading of her own works at the 
Carriage Barn in Bennington 
Thursday evening at 8:00 p.m. 

Since her first volume of poems 
was published in 1921, Miss Moore 
has achieved a position of fame 
:uid prominence in twentieth cen- 
'ury poetic circles. In recognition 
of the quality of her writings she 
has recently been awarded both 
l^he BoUlngen and Pulitzer prizes. 
Among the many notables who 
liave praised her work is modern 
poetry's flag-bearer, T. S. Eliot. 

Impressions and effects of Miss 
Moore's poetry can best be des-

Princeton Report 
Hits Eatiiig Clubs 

The Princeton Interclub Com- 
mittee recently stated that it "dis- 
approves on moral grounds of ra- 
cial and religious discrimination."! 

The Interclub Committee is an 
undergraduate body which coor- 1 
dinates elections to the eating 
clubs. It has been the subject of 
much recent student criticism. 

The controversy flared up in 
February when twenty-three so- 
phomores, about half of whom 
were Jewish, were rejected by all 
but one of the seventeen under- 
graduate eating clubs. 

The committee held that it "has 
a moral responsibility to do every- 
thing within its power to eradicate 
racial and religious discrimination 
wherever it may exist within the 
club system." It suggested no im- 
mediate remedy. 

"Redress the Balance" 

Princeton's president. Dr. Ro- 
bert F. Goheen, stated that he was 
satisfied with the committee's 
statement. He said, "Some have 
assigned a greatly exaggerated 
place to this in the club election 
recently completed, but this state- 
ment should help redress the bal-

CC Hears Gul Report; 
Referendum Proposed 

The editors of next year's Gul- 
ielmensian presented their case for 
inclusion of the Gul price in the 
college bill to the College Council 
Monday night. 

Involved parliamentary convolu- 
tions and heated commentary by 
CC members, Gul editors and the 
audience ensued. (See page two 
for arguments.) 

A proposal was then adopted 
that the Rules and Nominations 
Committee and tlie Council Com- 
mittee on Finance draft a refer- 
endum regarding the Gul. 

After a report by Ron Stegall, 
followed by con.siderable discus- 
sion, the Council approved a mo- 
tion setting up a committee to join 
the National Students Association 
for the college, Dick -Wydick '59, 
and Al Martin '60, voting In op- 

The CC accepted a motion by the 
Rules and Nominations Committee 
proposing membership of the new- 
ly-formed Current Affairs Com- 
mittee. John Phillips '59, was nam- 
ed as chairman. Other members 
include Bill Edgar, Jack Betz and 
Jim Rayhill of the class of 1959, 
to be augmented by two juniors 
and a freshman next fall. This 
group could revive the work of the 
defunct Institute of Politics. 

Phillips read a statement on the 
plans of the committee. Their

Despite police inxestijration, which hv then had eeiiti-red almost entirely on the sliideiit body, 
and scores of rumors, the prankster or would-be fanatic was still iniknowii. 

l"he shot was fired Satmdav niglit some time between 10:30 and 10:4.5 from a distance of 60- 
6.5 feet away directly into Mr. Coffin's .study. Town police chief |ohn D. Courtney |r. reports 

evidence also suggests that a car 
was used. 

Back to Window 

Only Miss Ruth Morgan, the ba- 
bysitter, and Amy. the three month 
old daughter of the Coffin's, were 
home, for the parents had gone to 
the movies. Although they both 
were upstairs at the time of the 
shooting. Miss Morgan said that 
she had been sitting most of the 
evening with her back to the 
window through which the shot 
was fired. 

■When the Coffins returned, they 
discovered that the 400 shotgun 
pellets had spewed bits of glass 
more than twenty feet through 
Mr. Coffin's study and into the 
living room. Miss Morgan said the 
baby had jumped at the sound 
of the gun, but she had thought 
that it was a car backfiring. After 
the Coffins showed her the glass, 
she .said, "I was so nervous I was

■William S. Coffin, who next year 
will become the Chaplain of Yale, 
is the nephew of Henry S. Coffin, 
late president of Union Theologi- 
cal Seminary. In his one year at 
Williams, Mr. Coffin has often 
spoken out boldly on knotty cam- 
pus problems. The most recent of 
these has been a controversy over 
fraternity selectivity in which he 
supported three students who re- 
signed from their houses. 

Asked if he felt that his opin- 
ions on fraternities were the cause 
of the shot, he quickly replied that 
he had no idea. But he added, "If 
so, somebody scares awfully easy." 
"Nothing Ever Happens" 

Eva Coffin, w'ho is currently 
playing a lead role in "Le Malade

daughter of Arthur Rubinstein, 
the concert pianist. She is a for-

The play comes from the age 
of Descarte's mathematics and 
Charpentier's well-wrought music. 
The 'Williams production, however 
— perhaps because of understand- 
ably inexperienced acting in some 
parts, perhaps because of the in- 
fluence of more modern acting 
techniques — had a few loose ends. 

Bruno Quinson's interpretation

sympathetic, at times poignant. 
His lively performance came closer 
than any other to the 17th cen-

Talk Of The Town 

Lust fall the- Stiidont faculty Ui.scipline .Com- 
mittee ruled that the i)f all students con- 
victed of traffic \iolati()ns would he suspended 
by the college for uu ai)pr()priate |x riod of time. 

Last week college pri'sideut, jaines P. Bax- 
ter 3rd was stojiiiedfor driving 65 miles per hour 
on local roads, lie was fined 15 dollars. 


The College Comicil hold an oix-n meeting in 
the Rathskellar Monday iiiglit. Its jiurpose was 
ostensibly to generate interest in student gov- 
ernment. Only three disinterested observers visit- 
ed the scene. 

The sijectacle to whicli they were subjected 
amounted to nothing more than a dog-fight a- 
mong the xarious factions of foinier and ])resent 
Old staff members. Each argimient was rooted in 
firm understanding of yearbook finances, but the 
total effect was nightmarisii conhision. 

Faced with the inemiable task of knifing 
throiigli tliis labyrinth of conflicting opinions, the 
Council did the'only thing it could do. It tabled 
a motion which would ha\'e forced students to 
hiiv the vearbook if diey did not state otherwise 
Ijcfore October 1-a plan originally ijroi^osed by 
the RECORD (Mar. 7) a .scant thirty-five days 

CoMMiiment is a slow and tedious business-

yc arbook iMobk-m now re\erts to the CCF where 
it slioiild have been thrashed out long ago. "O- 
pcM decisions, openly arrived af'might stimulate 
student interest, but without thorough study of 
the issues in committee, no decisions can be 

The original RECORD jilan is, perhaps, im- 
practical, l)ecause it would give the Gul staff 
no greater security for signing its contracts in 
the s]5ring. 

To aid the CCF in its search for an answer, 
the RECORD proposes an alternative: 

Cive the Gul staff greater security by es- 
tablishing a fund for possible subsidization in 
the CJCF. The amount of this reserve cash would 
be decided by the Council financial body, but 
if the yearbook were to finish with a deficit of 
less than the CCF's figure, it would be automati- 
cally covered with CCF funds. 

Yet on the other hand, if the Gul should re- 
port a deficit in e.\cess of this figure, the year- 
book staff wt)uld have to make up the difference. 

Student initiative would remain ]5aramount in 
Gul financial oi^erations. Yet at the same time, 
yearbook editors could sign contracts for a high 
(juality hook in confidence that a small deficit 
could be financed. 

The Arguments 

In die College Council meeting, Monday 
niglit, the discussion dealing with the Cul's nro- 
|)osul that it be fuianced by a general student 
tax was characterized by heatecl debate and a 
wide diversity of o])inion. 
Ari!^ui)wiits for Gul sitbaidt/: 

Tom White, co-editor of the Gul, defended 
die Gul's proposal on the gounds that student 
ajjathy and the rising cost of |)rinting was mak- 
ing it almost impossible for the Gul board to 
turn out a "quality" yearbook. He stressed the 
importance or a good annual in relation to its 
|)restige value for the school and its role as a 
l)ermanent record of the college year. 
Anti-assistance argument: 

Tom Pi])er, former business board member of 
the Gul stated that widi more initiative and in- 
genuity there would be no need for the liscal 
jjlan submitted by the present Gul board. 
Compromise Plan: 

Bill Ilarter, CC member, suggested that the 
students be given the option of either having no 
Gul or having it jiart of their bill. Those violent- 
ly opposed to receiving the college yearbook 
would be able to cancel their subscription by 
calling the Gul office. 

Conciliatory efforts along diis line culminat- 
ed in the adoption of Len Grey's motion that the

'Holiday In The Berkshires 

By Dave Skaff 

Holidav writer Ste]ihen Birmingham in his 
recent article on the Little Three mentioned 
tliat he is subject to a "recurring nightmare" 
based on I'reshinan English at Williams. His ar- 
ticle suggests a pleasant dream. 

His impressions of what we know of Wil- 
liams and the Little Three are largely fantasy 
befitting a large circulation travel magazine. Per- 
ha|)s his article will stir tourists to \enturing to 
Williams to "sjiy a bone-hard core of New Eng- 
land Puritanism as tough and flinty as New 
England soil." Oin- "thriving country town with 
few temptations for dissi|)ation and vice" should 
prove a tourist's Mecca. 

Many Williams students will be suqjrised 
to learn that four or five in a class is "not un- 
usual" and that classes "frequently are held" in 
professors' homes 

With an eye to Williams, Wesleyan, and Am- 
herst's distinctiveness, Birmingham sees a great 
gap bridging these schools and sucb schools as 
Harvard, Princeton, and Yale. In taking issue 
with a Yale man's view of Little Three schools 
as "reasonable facsimiles" of the Big Three, he 
gives a totally false impiession of the smaller 
schools to support his view. There are differences, 
but the similarities are much more in evidence. 

The Little Three man "goes to hear more 
visiting lecturers, subscribes to more concert ser- 
ies, attends more college plays, joins more col- 
lege organizations, becomes more involved with 
student government, goes in for more intiamural 
athletics." We wish this were true. 

A New England sense of morality and em- 
phasis on values with which we are steeped is 
beautiful to read and to make our chests swell. 
Perhaps, it makes Holiday's circulation rise?

Co-existence: Challenge To Society I 

"The logical alternative to co-existence in the therino-nuclrar 
age is co-aunihilation," warni'd Professor FrtKlerick L Schunuib in 
the fifth Student Union ColKxiuium on corcxisteiice with Russia 
last Thursday evening. 

Professor Schmniui, preceding pani'l member Dean ViiKvnt 
M. Baniett and moderator Harry Ashbaugh "58, said the ehoic, js 
one of striving for the good life or universal cK'ath antl p()sm!,|\. 
the extinction of humanity through atomic suicide. The debali is 
not between these alternatives, hut of terms by which co-existduc 
can be made most tolerable, l(!ast dangerous, and most construe live 
for mankind. 

The problem, continued the )-)olitical scientist, is an old mic 
dating back to the October Revolution in 1917. By the suinnui ol 
1918 both sides ))referred non-co-existence. The allied and assoc , .[- 
ed powers wanted to strangle Bolshevism in its na.scent stage; ilu. 
cominuiiists hoi)ed for world revolution. Botli sides failed in (li. n 
goals. Soviet desire for co-existence first became evident in l'i!() 
and has since re-ap|)eared whenever we'steni tlncats on Soviet 
existence has receded. 

"During the past dozen years of tlie cold war, America goid- 
ed to mass fear and hatred by the provocations of Stalinism Ins 
tended to base its policies on a central falsi' assuinptioii tiiat lie 
challenge of Soviet Comniunisin is primarily a military challenu. ," 
observed Mr. Schimian. A corollary false assumption is that su- 
perior military power will contain and e\en through |)ressure nid 
conununist rule. We shoukl realize both these assumptions ic 
false maintained Professor Schuinan since: "Coimnimist rule m 
China is here to stay; communist ruli- in Russia is here to stay." 


The challenge of Soviet power, according to the professor, 
is a scientific, a technological, educational, anil cconoinie cJiallennc 
It is an economic challenge because Russia, altliougli still far Ijc- 
hind us, is expanding at twice the rate of the Amerie;ui econoinw 
Russia lias also shown more interest and imagination in de\'eJo|)- 
ing the underdeveloped countries containing two-thirds of the 
human race. Nor can educational i^rogress in Russia be met liv 

"The challenge facing us is to better otn- science and technoln 
gy, to better our education, to reform our economy in the inter- 
ests of greater stability, and to raise thi' living standards of the 
worlds poor." Mr. Schumaii added that we are also ehallengetl to 
]5ractice what we preach in regard to e(|uality, regardless ol race 
color or national origin. A negotiatetl co-existence is tjie altenia(i\c 
to a cold war stalemate or co-annihilation. The )io]itieal seienli'.l 
contended that America could meel tlie S()\iet cliallenge coii- 
structix'ely. Negotiations ol a iikkIus \i\('ndi would be beneliii.i! 
to both sides and all mankiiul. 

Harrv Ashbaugh presented (ieorge F. Kennan's \ii'ws on in- 
existcnce as ex)iressed in his r<-eent publication, Russia, the .Atom, 
and the West. A solution to the satellite problem, Kcnnan wrolr. 
de)iends on withdrawal of western and Soxiet troojis Irom f'uropi' 
on the basis of a negotiated si'ttlement. Military disengagement 
will aid in eliminating friction and encourage the evolution of in- 
stitutions best suited to their needs. 

Political Conflict 

Kennan contended that the Hussian threat is basically |iolili- 
cal. The best hope for peaceful co-existence is through direct negn 
tiations on political conflicts between Russia and the United Stalt v 
The combination of political and military disengagement wiili 
diplomatic negotiations between the two blocks are Kennans 
hopes for co-exi.stence. 

Dean Barnett agreed with Schuinan and Kennan that it is ini- 
jjcrative to seek some accommodation between the two conflii I- 
ing power grou))s. He felt, however, that militarv disengagenu nt 
would be unwise because, "in the ])resent state of the world aiil 
with mutual distrust, a position of military strength is an iniii^- 
pensable )}re-i"e(]uisite without which negotiations cannot |)i'i- 
fitably proceed." 

In addition to keeping abreast in catastrophic weapons, it 
is also essential to improve om- ]iolitical, economic, and educatii n- 
al strength. American advantages in these s|)lieres can be empli i- 
sized by more effective government leadership, Dean Barii' tt

REMARKS: Progress is ttie order of every day for 

former Army Captain Dante "Bick" Caputo. Entering the 
Army as a Private, he earned his Captain's bars. And 
only one year after joining New York Life on August 1, 1949, he qualified for 
the Company's Top Club — an organization composed of sales leaders throughout 
the United States and Canada. He has qualified for either the Top Club or 
President's Council each succeeding year. His outstanding record made him 
eligible for the industry-wide Million Dollar Round Table in 1955, 1957 and 
1958. Always deeply interested in his chosen field of life insurance, "Bick" 
Caputo studied for and earned the cherished Chartered Life Underwriter designa- 
tion. A sales leader at New York Life, as well as a civic leader in his 
community — "Bick" Caputo seems destined for even greater accomplishments in his 
career as a New York Life representative. 

"Bick" Caputo, after nine years as a New York 
Life representative, is well established in a career 
that can ofTcr security, substantial income, and 
the deep satisfaction of helping others. If you'd

per cent rushing tor the seventh

dissatisfaction with the rushing 
system after the 4 -day rush in 

The principal objection to

Of the freshman group, 52

by the bequest of Mrs. Mary Cum- 
mings Eudy, a former member of 
the Academy. When the contest

was one of ten colleges chosen to 
offer the prine, the others being 
Chicago, Harvard, Princeton, Rol- 
lins, Smith, Stanford, Vassar, Vir- 
ginia, and Yale. 

Previous Winners 
Last year's award went to Pat- 
rick B. McGinnis, '57. Other win- 
ners have been Travis Merritt '55, 
who is carrying on graduate study 
in English at the University of 
Clricago, and J. Wilson '56, who is 
presently teaching at the Grace 
Church School in New York City.

of the English Department, is in 
charge of the contest. 

.solved: That this house approves 
of the principle of athletic schol- 
arships on the college level." Each 
•school sent both an affirmative 
and a negative team. 

Schools participating in the 
tournament were: Choate, Deer- 
field, Gunnery, Portsmouth Priory, 
Stratford (Conn.) High School, 
Wilbraham, and Worcester Acad-

sible for Taft, Hotchkiss, and An- 
dover t^ get to Williamstown. 

In four preliminary rounds of 
debating, Deerfield and Gunnery 
won the chance to participate in 
the finals. These preliminary 
rounds were held Friday night and 
Saturday morning in Griffin Hall 
and the Williamstown High 

The finals took place in Room 
3 of Griffin Hall at 1:30 on Sat-

Scrimmage Wins 

Scoring 41 points in two scrim- 
mages last week the Williams la- 
crosse team downed the Univer- 
ity of Massachusetts and the Wil- 
liums freshmen by 20-1 and 21-4 

Faced by a weak U. of Mass. 
I cam at Amherst Thursday, the 
Ephs opened up their attack be- 
hind George Boynton and Nick 
Ratcliffe. High scorer for the af- 
' moon was Ratcliffe with four 
sioals and one assist. He was fol- 
lowed by Roger Southall (three 
Ksals) and George Boynton with 
i two goals, five assists. 

Freshman Scrimmagre 

At Colo field on Saturday the 
varsity encountered the freshman 
lacrosse team in another informal 
scrimmage. The game was called 
before the end of the third period 
but not before the varsity had tal- 
lied 21 goals. Again Boynton and 
Ratcliffe led the scoring with four 
goals, five assists and four goals, 
one assist respectively. 

This was the first scrimmage 
for the freshmen, who are seeking 
to duplicate last year's undefeated 
freshman record. The varsity, 
however, commanded the game 
completely except for the third 
minute of the second period when 
Eric Widmer, Paul Reyes, and Tim 
Weinland scored back to back. 
Eight minutes later Weinland 
scored again with help from Bill 
Whiteford for the fourth and final 
freshman goal.

abled coach Len Watters to make 
a realistic appraisal of the squad 
as yet. The team will open the 
season with an away contest with 
R. P. I. on Saturday, April 26. 

Although the team has only been 
able to practice as a unit since 
the spring vacation the battery 
candidates held several workouts 
in the cage prior to recess. The 
team's pitching staff will probably 
include Sam Weaver, John Leech, 
Jim Prick, Don JMonroe and John 
Whitney with Tom Condron, Tom 
Fox and Tad Day competing for 
the receiving position. 

With the large number of can- 
didates and the possibility of good 
weather, the two weeks remaining 
before the season begins should 
produce a good freshman squad.

Face MIT, Harvard 

Bad weather since the termina- 
tion of spring vacation h"K forced 
Golf Coach Dick Baxter to go a- 
long with a squad selected pri- 
marily from last year's varsity, for 
next Saturday's triangular match 
with M. I. T. and Harvard. 

Due to the impossibility of play- 
ing qualifying matches during the 
past week, Baxter will field a first 
five men composed of Captain 
John Boyd in the number one po- 
sition followed by Hans Halligan 
in number two position and Rob 
Foster, Sam Davis and Bill Tuach. 

The last three will be placed ac- 
cording to their performances this 
week. Pilling out the squad will 
be the top two men of a threesome 
including Mike Beemer, Bob Juli- 
us, both sophomores and Junior 
Doc Johnson. 

Competition for future matches 
will be held this week as the last 
three positions on the squad are 
still unsettled. As the course is 
still soft the long hitters like John- 
son may have an advantage over 
the boys who are shorter off the 



good record posted by this sen, 

Sudduth ran the third \v of 
the relay and posted an exci WxA, 
quarter mile time of 48.5 sec ads. 
He will also co-captain the c .ss- 
country team next fall.

Princeton Dumps Eph Netmen 7-2; 
Tigers Capture Five Of Six Singles 

Leonard, Turner Score In Doubles Match 


The Williams College varsity 
tennis team went down in defeat 
to a powerful Princeton squad at 
the Tigers' courts on Saturday. 
The Ephmen lost 7-2, but the re- 
sult was much closer than the 
score indicates since they dropped 
4 three set matches while winning 
only one. 

Eastern Intercollegiate singles 
champion Jim Parrin quickly dis- 
posed of captain Karl Hirshman 
in the first singles match by a 
i;-2, 6-1 count. Farrin scored heav- 
ily with his powerful ground 
strokes that had Hirshman con- 
iiintly hitting off balance. 

In the second singles match, 
Tom Shulman scored an upset in 
dumping highly regarded John Mc- 
Lean C-4, 6-3. The Ephman kept 
the pressure on his opponent from 
I lie baseline and scored heavily at 
Jie net. 

Leonard-Turner Win 

Dave Leonard, Joe Turner, and 
lirnic Fleishman were all one set 
up on their opponents only to lose 
iiie next two sets. Turner led his 

man Jeff Arnold, a former high 
ranking junior player, 6-3 and 5-3 
only to drop the match. 

The Williams number six man 
Tom Davidson also lost a close 
one as Williams fell behind by a 
decisive 5-1 score. Leonard and 
Turner turned in a victory in the 
doubles to score the second Eph 

The match was held in overcast 
weather, and the previous day's

By John Good 

Resigning assistant professor of 
music, Walter NoUner made his 
last appearance as glee club di- 
rector at Williams before a small 
audience in Chapin Hall Sunday. 
The occasion was a joint concert 
given by the Wellesley College 
Choir and the Williams College 
Glee Club. 

Except for the small audience 
it could be generally stated that 
NoUner bowed out in style. His 
glee club for the most part sound- 
ed polished and performed cred- 
itably, especially in harmony with 
the 72 voices from Wellesley. 

When the groups .sang separately 
before intermission, Wellesley stole 
the show. Two renditions especially 
stood out; Mozart's "Ave verum 
corpus" and Franck's "Psalm One 
Hundred and Fifty". 

The Williams singers, for their 
part, also did a good job. In Du- 
fay's "Magnificat", however, their 
only separate performance of the 
afternoon, the loud passages were 
better than the soft, giving the ef- 
fect of unevenness. 

Byrd's "Second Service" and 
Bach's "Cantata No. 131" which 
the groups performed together 
were both satisfying renditions, 
the former work being the better 
of the two. Unity of these two well- 
disciplined choral groups in the 
final nimibcrs produced a beauti- 
ful harmony, and concluded a 
highly enjoyable afternoon of mu-

M(l(!nt of next year's Junior Advl- 


In a meeting held Tuesday 

niaht Ben Schenk was also elected

Stegall won a close race for the 
I'lesideiicy. After the election he 
;iid that "If the enthusiasm of 
1; e thirty guys at this meeting is 
i, liicative of the job to be done 
! I xt year, it ought to be a success- 
.ul year." Stegall, experienced in 
lii.'shman affairs, was president of 
lis freshman class. 

Schenk, the vice president, is on 
1 1 16 RECORD editorial staff, the 
tiophomore Council, and was chair- 
man of Winter Houseparty. Both 
Schenk and Stegall recognized the 
"line job" this year's Junior, Ad- 
M.sers have done and are hoping 
;u work closely with them and the 
present freshman class to "work 
(lilt an even more successful pro- for next year." 

Jerry Rardin '58, president of 
this year's Junior Advisers, pre- 
.s.'.;ed over the meeting. He told the 
new Junior Advisers of their du- 
ties and his experiences as a J. A. 
Dsan Cole, also present at the

as a liaison between the adminis- 
tration and the freshman class.

16 In History 

The history department claims 
he highest number of honors stu- 
'lents, 16 men. Eight members of 
I lie class of '58 are doing honors 
\i'ork in Chemistry and English. 
■\t the other end of the ladder, 
'Illy one senior is doing honors 

ork in Economics, while the Psy- 
hology Department boasts only 2. 

In Biology prodigious investiga- 
tion usually precedes the required 
thesis. Di^ve Friedberg '58, for 
I'xample, has been examining the 
'ffect of fat diets on producing 
■symptoms of heart disease In 
thickens. It is said that Friedberg 
lias slain upwards of eighty chick- 
Pn.s in his quest. 

Economics Project 

The sole senior majoring with 
Honors in Economics, Dick Attt- 
veh, has refrained from writing a 
thesis. Instead he is doing inde- 
pendent study of the theory and 
practice of urban redevelopment, 
Retting considerable practical ex- 
perience out of the problems of 
North Adams, where he has done 
much of his field work. 

In the Psychology Department, 
a typical hard-working Honors 
student is senior Ed Snyder who 
is doing a thesis on, "The Rela- 
tion between Occupational Status 
and Attitude." Snyder has done 
much of this work in cooperation 
with the Roper Institute, an aid 
he has found invaluable. 

Questioned as to the merit of 
majoring by the Honors route, 
Snyder said; "It can open up lim- 
itless fields of knowledge to the 
ambitious student with initiative, 
energy, and a real desire to im- 
prove his intellect." 

Groundwork Laid For 
'59 Career Weekend 

Groundwork is being laid for 
next year's Career Weekend. 
Placement Bureau Director Man- 
ton Copeland, Jr. has announced 
that it will be held at the end of 
January, and the undergraduate 
Career Weekend Committee, head- 
ed by Bill Tuach '59, will meet 
next week to discuss preliminary 

Changes in format— particularly 
the Friday night forum which 
drew some sharp criticism this 
year — are being considered. The 
student Committee will also study 
a questionnaire sent to participants 
in this year's weekend. 

Sponsored by the Placement 
Bureau to assist undergraduates in 
choosing a vocation, Career Week- 
end—in existence since 1955— is 
now a recognized college event. 

The undergraduate committee 
works In conjunction with an a- 
lumni committee, to be headed 
next year by Joseph D. Stockton 
'29, vice-president of the Illinois 
Bell Telephone Company and a 
member of the Office of Defense 

ence in New Hayen and Mrs. Cof- 
fin was acting in the AMT's pro- 
duction of "Le Malade Imaginaire." 

Lynn Rice, the baby-sitter em- 
ployed by the Coffins to take care 
of their 3-month old daughter 
Amy, became hysterical when she 
heard the blasts. Next-door neigh- 
bor Howard P. Stabler notified the 
police immediately. 

An investigation by Police Chief 
John Courtney indicated that the 
explosions had been caused by two 
cherrybombs. It -is believed, how- 
ever, that the person who fired 
the shot last Saturday was not 
the person who threw the cherry- 

Mr. Coffin returned from New 
Haven at 6 o'clock Thursday morn- 
ing. At noon Mrs. Coffin was still 
visibly shaken by the Incident. 


Spring Breezes Visit Williamstown;

Two Students Admit 
Coflin Shotgunning 

/;(/ Joliii D. Phillips 
The men res|ionsible for last Saturday's shotgun attack on the 
home of ('haplaiii W'illiaiii S. Coffin have been ai)prehended. 

Williamstown Police Chief John 
D. Courtney, Jr., announced last 
night that two Williams students 
had signed confessions to the 
shooting, and implied that a third 
student might be involved. 

The students were released On 
$50 bail and tried in the Williams- 
town District Court this niorniiig 
on the double charge of malicious 
damage to property and carrying 
a loaded firearm in an automobile. 
They pleaded guilty and were fin- 
ed $125. Whon asked in court why 
they chose Chaplain Coffin's 
house for their action, they refused 
to an.swer. 

This afternoon at 2 o'clock they 
will fnce the Student-Faculty Dis- 
cipline Committee with the possi- 
bility of expulsion from college. 

The case was handled by the 
William.stown police force in co- 
operation with college authorities 
and RECORD staff members. This 
combined effort to track down the 
attackers began early Sunday 
when police pinpointed the time' 
of the shooting and began inves- 
tigating college shotgun registra- 

On the basis of this preliminary 
information, plus fragmentary 
knowledge received from Williams 
students, the pohce were led to be- 
lieve that the attacker was a stu- 
dent. Several suspects were rigor- 
ously interrogated. That was Tues- 
day night. 

On Wednesday, police inquiries 
in the Southworlh Street area un- 
covered evidence of more than o^e 
student involved in the case. Both- 
Mrs. Coffin and her neighbors 
said that they recalled seeing a 
dark bronze car passing slowly in 
front of the Coffin home at least 
three times during the day on 

One man stated to police that 
at 10:30 Saturday night, while 
standing in his driveway, he heard 
a shot and saw a car roaring up 
the street from the direction of 
the Coffin residence. He described 
the vehicle as a dark bronze Pon- 
tiac or Chevrolet of late forties 
or early fifties vintage. Police con- 
cluded from this evidence that at 
least one student besides the gun- 
man was involved. 

Still, authorities lacked evidence 
pointing conclusively to any par- 
ticular students. Hnally, on Thurs- 
day, they uncovr-red Information 
on several students which checked 
with the circumstantial facts of 
the case. 

They were immt-diately question- 
ed by local police, and by late 
yesterday afternoon the confes- 
sions were secured. . 

31 Incoming Juniors 
Select Physics Major 

An unprecedented 31 incoming 
juniors registered- in the physics 
major for next year. 

The jump, including 16 honors 
students, was the largest of the 
year, and thrust Physics Into third 
place of favorite majors. 

New Science Emphasis 

Physics professor Ralph P. Winch 
attributed the increase to "a gen- 
eral trend, placing greater empha- 
sis on the need for scientists, es- 
pecially for military research." 
Winch stated that the physics de- 
partment had noted increases in 
the last three years, but cited this 
jump as "most unusual." 

In other fields, English retained 
its customary place as the most 
favorite major, gaining 41 junior 
applications. History again was 
second, and recruited the greatest 
number of new honors students 
with 21.

Letters To The Editor 


To the RECORD: 

For the \rdi>t two moath.s I have witnessed 
with the rest of the VVilliaiii.s C-olk'i^e body the 
j^rowth of an issiii- to a |)lRii()iiiciial proportion: 
thixt issue is selectivity and aloiii^ with it arose 
what arc to inc uij;ly \iscious offsiiots. 1 do not 
intend to deal with the problem of selectivity 
but to point up certain attitudes and trends 
which, althouj^h they are the minority, are pre- 
sent to wliat 1 consider an alarminf^ degree in 
this supposedly liberal colleu;e. 

I think many Williams Collej^e students have 
forgotten, if they ever knew, how to respect an- 
other persons point of view, csiiecially a highly 
idealistic one. Wiien a man like Mr. Coffin e.\- 
l^ressed his views on seleeti\ity, a lot of Williams 
students stopped to listen and gave his views due 
consideration, even if in the final analysis they 
disagreed with him. Other gronjis, however, on 
CcUnpus reacted differently. "It was not Mr. Cof- 
fin's place as Chaplain to denounce the frater- 
nity system or attempt to win support for a non- 
fraternity type of organization— after all, he knew 
what he was getting into before he came to Wil- 
liams." Some students think our beliefs and ideals 
are |)ackaged commodities to be bought and sold 
onlv as we jilease. If a commodity becomes hard 
to sell and is not the politically expedient thing 
to do, then don't e\en try to sell it, it's not worth 
the effort. 

If a fellow student or a professor holds a 
radically different view or a strongly idealistic 
one, is Williams Colleg;e any place for him to 
express it'P Especially if it in some way threatens 

the existing social structure? Only if he has the 
guts to endure the ridiciding, dumping and lam- 
pooning he will take from the student body. If 
his view is radical enough and threatening e- 
nough to the social order, the man is apt to get 
full covi'rage in the latest issue of our nuid sling- 
ing, good old college humor magazine. Enough 
is enough! 

These are bitter and disillusioned words of 
a bitter and disillusionetl student but there is a 
plea behind it all. If a man e.xjjresses a view you 
disagree witii, don't take a sliotgim and puni|) 
lead through his windows, ilon't throw st()ii(\s at 
him in the local humor magazine, but discuss 
and refute his arguments intelligently and, if you 
can't do this, then sit down ami consider "may- 
be this guy has something on the ball after all." 
And above all, stinuilate an atmospheic in which 
llu'se views can be expressed fri'clv without de- 
rision—let me clarify my last point. Time Mag- 
azine recentlv <|uoted a Harvard man saying, 
"our undisci|ilinables are our ]ir()udest liroduet." 
I wonder if a grt'at ninnber of Williams students 
don't regai'd our eonforniist, our non-thinkers, 
oin- disci)5linables as our proudest products.

Rt/ William G. Cole 
Dean of Freshmen 

In the spring, so 'tis said, a young man's 
fancy lightly tinms to thoughts of things girls 
have been thinking about all winter. The vernal 
sap is a|)parently rising in the veins of the editors 
of the RECORD, for they have asked me to pen 
a few immortal words on the subject of Mar- 
riage in College. 

The Zeitf^eist has gone balmy, for this is the 
fourth set of editors who have re(|uested such an 
article! Why the age-old ways of a man with a 
maid, ways that lead by ancient legerdermain to 
an altar should attract so much attention and in- 
terest is, I confess, something of a puzzlement, 
as Anna's king of Siam would put it. It is a com- 
mentary on the brevity of hmnan memory, on the 
stubborn tendency to regard present practice as 

All the contemporary stir over the growing 
number of married shidents rests ]iartly on the 
illusion that it is somehow imwise for peo]ile to 
enter wedlock before they have arrived at their 
middle twenties. 

Actually, prior to the industrial revolution, 
with its accompanying demands for training and 
education, when an agricultural society regard- 
ed children as economic assets, as hands to work 
rather than as mouths to feed, marriage in the 
late 'teens or early twenties was the rule rather 
than the exception. 

Our own assmnptions about what is "early" 
for marriage arc based upon com|5aratively re- 
cent custom and circumstance. It simply takes 
longer today to arrive at the economic indepen- 
dence which western society regards as the sine 
cfuo non writ large over the portals of mah-imony. 

But economic security, important as it is, is 
no guarantee of a happy or successful marriage. A 
far more essential ingredient is that vague cpuility 
known as emotional maturity, which is not auto- 
matically achieved with the passing of a requi- 
site number of years. Some people never grow up; 
othtrrs mature surprisingly early. And in this re- 
.spect, college sttiaents who marry are not very 
different from their elders. 

Some of the marriages arc excellent, entered 
for all the right reasons and with all of the flex- 
ibility and tmderstanding necessary to grow to- 
gether. Others arc tragic, representing a flight 
from loneliness, parental domination, or a gen- 
eral malaise, filled with false expectations and 

illusions, doomed to failure from the start. The 
decisive question one has to ask about any mar- 
riage is not when but why. 

Obviously, any student who takes that trek 
to the altar is sacrificing some of the freedom 
and the; dalliance of his bright college years. But 
he may have arrived at the point in life where he 
is ready to settle down and enjoy a greater sta- 

Interestingly enough, marriage frequently 
improves a man's academic status markedly. His 
new responsibilities give him a new seriousness of 
puriiose, a new concern about his tasks. And he 
is delivered from the distractions of the social 
whirl. He no longer has to spend those hours on 
the road to and from Northam)5ton, South Had- 
ley, Poughkeensie, etc. He .stays home nights! 
But it is not all beer and skitdes. 

Frecpiently the economic |)rohlems loom large, 
especially if a family is started. Parental op)iosi- 
tion and sometimes parental hovering over the 
infant marriage can be oppresive and stifling. 
Conflicts occasionally arise over the luisi)ancVs 
desire to s|)end an evening now and then at the 
fraternity. But the reefs threatening a student 
marriage are not necessarily any more deadly 
than those which imperil any iminn between a 
man atid wife. No marriage is without its difficid- 
ties, both internal and external, and rlo difficul- 
ties are so great that they can^ibt be worked 
through, given a degree of matltfttyand trnder* 
standing on both sides, , .

{By the Author of "Rally Round the Flag, Boysl "and, 
"Barefoot Boy with Cheek") 


I have recently received sevenil letters from renders which 
have heon so interesting, so j)i(]iiant, so je ne sais qiioi, that I 
feel I must sliare them with all of you. The letters and my 
replies follow: 
SIR: ' 

Maybe you can help me. I came tip to college eislit years 
ago. On my very first day I got into a bridge gume in tlie 
student union. I am still in the same liridge game. I have never 
gone to class, cracked a book, or paid any tuition. All 1 do 
is ])lay bridge. 

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

But all good tilings nnist come to an end. Mine ended when 
I came home for Christmas vacation. I arrived to find that 
Sister (my sister) was in the hospital with an ingrown sjileen. 
Dr. Norbert Wgafoos, the eminent ingrown spleen ^urgeon, Wius 
scheduler to'' operate, but unfortunately lie •w!jfi^:|T]n over by 
a hot-food cart on the way to the scrubbing room. 

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

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

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


-^ „ , Harlow Protein 

Dear Harlow: 

Indeed I do have the solution for you— the 
solution that has never failed me when things 
close in: Light up a Marlboro! Knots untie as 
you puff that fine rich tobacco. Shade becomes 
light as that grand flavor comes freely and friend- 
lily through that splendid filter. Who can stay 
glum when Marlboro gives you such a lot to like? 
Not I. Not you. Not nobody. 

Just off the campus where I go to school there is a lake 
called Lake Widgiwagan. Thirty years ago when my father was 
an undergraduate here he went fishing one day in Lake Widgi- 
wagan and dropped his Deke pin in the water. He dived for 
days but never found it. 

Just yesterday -thirty years later, mark you!-I went fish- 
mg m Widgiwagan. I caught a four-pound bass. I took the 
fisn linmo, cut it open, and what do you think I found insideT 
You guessed itl Two tickets to the Dempsey-Firpo fight.

Rick Power at short will round out 
a solid infield. Tom Christopher 
will open behind the plate. 

Along with McAIaine, Bob Iver-

Officially beginning the 1958 

season, the varsity lacrosse team 

will meet Union on Cole Field 

Prospects for the contest heav- 
ily favor the Ephs, who dumped 
Union last year by a 13-5 score at 
Schenectady. Another pre-game 
factor is last year's freshman score 
over the Dutchmen J. V. — 29-0. 

The starting lineup for Tuesday 
will probably shape up like this: 
attackmen George Boynton, Nick 
Ratcliffe, and Pit Johnson, mid-

Hitler Gave Germans 
Identity With Destiny 

' Speaking to a large audience 
Wednesday night, Prof. Robert G. 
L. Waite dealt with the problems 
of Hitler's rise to power. 

Waite suggested that this sub- 
ject involved several views, in- 
cluding the development of Nazi 
ideology through influential men 
such as Luther, Hegel, and Niet- 
zsche, Hitler's appeals to specific 
sociological groups, and the social- 
psychological tht'ory that modern 
man seeks per.sonal strength in 
identity with a strong dictator as 
an escape from I he overwhelming 
real world. 

The compelliiic; personality of 
Hitler, said Waite, was also in 
strumental in liolding the Nazi 
movement together and giving it 
the necessary fanatical impetus. 
It was easy for "Herr Average" to 
identify himself with this "funny 
little man." More important, at 
a time when the rest of the world 

Meyers To Study 
At The Sorbonne 

Bob Myers '60, will spend his 
junior year at the Sorbonne in 
Paris. He will be there as a par- 
ticipant in the Sweetbriar Junior 
Year in France Program, 

The program is not set up on an 
exchange basis, but it sends ap- 
proximately ninety American stu- 
dents each year to study in French 
Universities. All the students in- 
volved have advisors under the 
program provisions. Myers' advi- 
sor is Professor Secor, chairman 
of the Romance Languages depart- 
ment at Dennison College. 

Myers, who is a history major, 
will receive major and course credit 
for the courses he takes. He plans 
to take a course in art at rEcole 
du Louvre, a French literature 
course, and two history courses at 
L'institute des Etudes Politiques; 
all in Piench. 



BB has finally arrived after a 
long wait. The unexpurgated 
version of "And God Created 
Women" will play for dateless 
undergrads for four days start- 
ing tonight. The story is about 
a cast off lass who seeks true 
love, but who cares about the 


The film version of Dostoev- 
sky's great novel, "The Brothers 
Karamozov", is not as great a 
movie, but Yul Brynner, Maria 
Schell, Claire Bloom, and Ri- 
chard Basehart plus suspense- 
ful drama make this a must. 

You are insured by Lloyd's of 
London if you go to see "Ma- 
cabre" a supposedly frightening 
flick, but two bits you won't 
need the coverage. To add to 
the horror "Hell's Five Hours" 
is also playing. "Gift of Love" 
starts Sunday.

I was vacillating and tentative. Hit-

fallibility of Destiny. The hypno- 
tic effect of his speaking, both on 
himself and his listeners, produc- 
ed a conviction above reason in 
both that he was always superna-

The politics behind Hitler's 
Glorious Revolution was somewhat 
less supernatural. In 1933 all other 
alternatives had failed: Hitler's 
was the only dynamic policy,

class lines to such higher instincts 
as patriotism, morality, selfless-

Harrier Barrier 

IN THE TWENTIES, up-to-date college 
gals wore raccoon coats, danced the 
Charleston and smoked Luckies. 
What's the rage on campus today? 
Raccoon coats. The Charleston. And 
Luckies! The conclusions are obvious. 
1. Luckies were tops for taste in the 
Twenties and still are. 2. Smart smokers 
knew it and still do. So any gal who 
takes Luckies to a Roaring 20's party 
is a Dapper Flapper! And by George, 
the boy friend who sports 'em, too, is 
a Couth Youth! Prediction: In the 
1980's, raccoon coats, the Charleston 
and light, good-tasting tobacco will 
still be in style!

Coffin Incident Closed

The two students who attack-

a shotgun last Saturday night 
have been expelled from the col- 

After a brief review of the 
case, the Student-Faculty Dis- 
-■ipline Committee recommended 
the expulsion to President Bax- 
ter. Baxter followed the com- 
mittee's recomendation and ap- 
proved the expulsion on his re- 
turn to Williamstown Sunday 

Official notification was sent 
to the students Monday. Ap- 
peal against the decision might 
be made to the President, but 
it is unlikely that a reversal 
could be obtained. 

Infirmary Plans 
New Facilities 

Nearly half of the $10,000 grant- 
ed to Williams by the Ford Found- 
ation last year will be expended to 
build a new wing on the college in- 

According to Dr.Thomas Urmy, 
Head Physician, the construction 
will be completed by the beginning 
of the 1958-59 school year. The 
"new wing" actually amounts to 
a remodelling of the sun proches 
on the South side of the building 
to provide increased bed and of- 
fice space. Two-thirds of the space 
thus created will provide room for 
tliree more beds on the second floor 
and increased office facilities on 
the ground floor. The remaining 
one-third of the porch space will 
be made into a fire escape running 
the height of the building.

^Ballyhoo' Production Utilizes Many 
Talents; Cast To Make Recordings 

"Ballyhoo", the all-college musical, is an undertaking which 
extends considcrahly outside the college itself. 

Besides the many Williams students, uhout a dozen Beniiine;- 
ton girls are working in the show, inuliidiiig [udy Cohen, who is 
lieljiing John Co.stello '60, with choreography and the vocal di- 
rector, Kay Reynolds. 

Costumes are being designed by Mrs Olga Sears, veteran 
costumer of AMT productions. She 
is assisted by several faculty wives 
and Mrs. Rick DriscoU. 

Among the principals in the 
show are Linda March, Jennifer 
Rains, both of Bennington, and 
Mrs. Keith Griffin. Ivory Paine, 
who lives with Mr. and Mrs. Giles 
Playfair, Is a member of the cho- 
rus. Playfair, who is director of 
the AMT, and William J. Martin, 
drama lecturer, are acting as ad- 
visors to the production. 


On Sunday. April 27, the cast 
will record the music of the show 
on 12-inch high-fidelity records. 
The recording will be produced by 
Ted Castle '60, and made by the 
Audiosonlc Recording Co. of New 
York. Stan Lawder '58 is design- 
ing the covers. 

Six hundred copies of the album 
will be sold in the foyer of the 
AMT after the performances of 
May 2, 3, and 10. They may also 
be ordered by mall. Explaining the 
recording Castle stated, 'We are 
able to offer this recording of very 
high professional quality at two 
dollars less than Broadway cost 
recordings because, of course, our 
expenses are far fewer than they 
would be In New York". 

Parties^ Ads^ Gul Get 
College Council Action 

htj Ted Ciistle 
In one of the most constructis'c meetings of the College Coun- 
cil to date, ti\e conti'ovcisial issues were discussed and action was 
taken decisively. 

John .Mangel '.59, chairman of the C(> llouseparties Committee 
proposed a iilan to tax e\ery student ap]ir()xiniatelv $10 in the 
fall to co\er the cost of three all-college dances and tliree .Satur- 
day houscpartv activities. The (Jiniiieil opposed the placeiiient of 
this tax on the aminal college hill hut \()ted 9-3 to allow the Social 
Council to a]ipro\c' the tax unaiiimouslv at the first meeting in 
the fall if the frateiiiities would hack the action. A single house in 
opposition would kill the jilaii. Freshmen and non-affiliates would 
he allowed to elect the tax individually. 

Complimentary Ads 
Tom Piper '59. of the Finance 
Committee introduced a measure 
to relieve friction between the col- 
lees publications and the Spring 
Street merchants who contribute 
to these organizations largely or 
purely for public relations. The 
system would solicit advertising 
fiom the merchants who wish to 
join the plan at one time for all 
(10) college-affiliated publications. 
The businessmen would thus be 
exempt from wholesale and unex- 
pected solicitation, of which the 
Williamstown Board of Trade has 
recently complained to the Col- 
lege. Piper stated that all publica- 
tions involved were agreed that the 
proposal should be put into effect. 
It was approved unanimously. 
The Gul 
Palmer White '59, chairman of 
the CCP, recommended that the 
Gulielmensian (college yearbook) 
be given one more year in order 
to justify their contention that the 
book should be placed on each 
student's college bill. The CCP 
proposed to guarantee the Gul edi- 
tors up to $925 to cover a possible 
debt while working with the Busi- 
ness board to find the most effec- 
tive means to avoid a debt. The 
plan was approved 11-1 (Rorke).

Spring Houseparties, with its cen- 
tral theme of 'Carnival', cannot 
help but be a success." These are 
the words of Tom Fox, freshman

Editor Faced By Duel 

The Amherst "Student" be- 
came the center of a controver- 
sy last week when an English 
graduate student challenged one 
of the editors to a duel. 

The graduate student, Keith 
Morris, termed the caption on a 
picture of him as "outrageously 
offensive." The editor, with tra- 
ditional Amherst modesty, "re- 
served comment". 

Class of '61 has engaged Marshard 
for the All-College Dance in the 
Freshman dining room of Baxter 
Hall, and Phinney's Favorite Five 
will play for jazz enthusiasts in 
the Freshman Lounge the same 
night.The decoration committee is

derson '61. 


A carnival will be held In the 
Freshman Quad from 6-8:30 P.M. 
Saturday evening. Wif Floyd '61, 
chairman of the carnival commit- 
tee, plans miniature golf, a rat 
race, and a strength tester among 
others. The featured attraction will 
be a bike race, with two members 
of each class participating. The 
price for most booths will be ten 
cents per ticket. At the AMT the 
carnival spirit will hold forth 
with performances both nights of 

The freshman class also plans a 
dance Saturday evening from 9-12 
in the Rathskeller. The Modern- 
aires will provide the music. 

Student Body To Join 
National Organization 

By virtue of a College Council 
decision last Monday night, the 
student body of Williams College 
will soon become a member of the 
National Student Association.

Philadelphia, has over one million 
members in more than 360 col- 
leges and universities across the 

As the largest and most repre- 
sentative student association in 
the United States, its decisions and 
opinions are considered both in 
the United States and around the 
world as typical of American col- 
lege students. 

Student Officers 

The NSA is headed by a .slate of 
officers elected annually from a- 
mong delegates to a national con- 
vention. The officers leave school 
for a year to direct the organiza- 

The NSA directs a scholarship 
program which annually brings to 
the country over 100 foreign stu- 
dents and sponsors a travel pro- 
gram which sends 500 Americans 
abroad every year. 

A library of information on stu- 
dent government problems, main- 
tained by the NSA, will be avail- 
able to the College. In addition a 
biweekly newspaper and a monthly 
magazine are published. 

The World University Service, 
the American Council on Educa- 
tion and UNESCO are also activi- 
ties in which the NSA is Involved.

upon hcarhig of tlii' hitter's aspirations to write 
a war novel, "You'll get o\ er it. Oiicet 1 wuz gon- 
na write a book e.x])osin' the army after the war 
myself." But it is hard to run away from that 
vviiieh is evident. 

This has not been in tlefensc of or attack of 
anv national sides, (x'rtainly there are relative 
\anies ol guilt and innocence. Rather, the prob- 
k'ln I'xposed has bt'en one ol universal import- 
ance, not provincial in essence. 

Letters To The Editor 


To the RECORD: 

Although we are em|)lo)'ed by a firm in eom- 
IK'tition with Wallace l.aboratories, we feel that 
voiu' misuse and iniss|ielling of the trademaik 
Miltown" in the April 9th issue of the RECOHD 
constitntt'S a grave threat to trademarks in gen- 
eial. We think that this misuse reveals a friv- 
olous attitude and we respectfully re(|uest that, 
in the future, when referring to a maiiufactmer's 
trademark such as 'Miltovvn", you cai^italize it 
and enclose it with ticks as shown above. Use 
of "Miltown with a small case "m" implies that 
it is a generic or common name; the gein'ric 
name for this )iroduct is meprobomatt'. 

Since a tiademark provides to the manulac- 
tm'cr who selects and uses the mark the exclu- 
sive right to that name for his brand of the ]iro- 
duct. this may be a bitter pill to swallow lor those 
in till' college conmiunity who aii' opposed to ex- 
clusivity or selectivity. When em|il()yed, they 
may even resign from cor|)orations Ix'cause ol 
the i^rinciples involved, or they may decline to 
purchase 'Kodak" cameras or 'Blue Ribbon' beer. 
Nev ertheless, trademarks are here to stay in this 
coimtrv, and the system will he difficult to buck.

P. S. One last word: we have discussed this 
matter with one of om- legal colleagues who snl- 
fers imder the onus of being an .'\mherst grad- 
uate. Despite this misfortune, Mr. David heartily 
agrees in regard to trademarks.

Baxter Talks On Atomic Age Policy 

1)1/ Tobi/ Smith 

Tlmrsilay President James P. Baxter 111 gave the seventh (I a 
series of eight lectmcs on .\meriean Diplomacy sponsored hv M,,, 
Social Council. The to|)ic of this last discussion was "Amen m 
Diplomacy in the Atomic Age". 

The first |)art of the analysis was concerned with a I)rief '.i.;. 
tory of the .\tomic Era. Baxter pointed to the complexitv of li,. 
age as tin' roadblock to the efleelivi' outlawing of tlie bomb :'.(■. 
lore tlu- entl of the war we were limited by the amount of ,^. 
sionahle material and only had produced three A-bombs ii or 
to the [apanese surrentler. Since the wai' inaniiim has beci m. 
<|uite abundant. 

In the '5()'s the emphasis has shifted from the bomb il || 
to the vehick' th;it is to bring it lo l;nget. The advent of H\is' m 
long range bomheis necessitated the advancement of our raiir 
sv'stem along with the speeih'd development ol om' own air fdi ,' 
'I'he intercontini'iital missile has almost doubled the sdain on ( in- 

President Ba.xter pointed out that the Russians in aelnalil\ In 
not have an ICBM as the Kremlin wonki have iis believe bu( |l , \ 
are ahead ol us. The present domestic tension has (o do wid, d,,. 
level ol stontiimi 90 in the atmosphere and one's piiiximilv {<• a 
strategic target. Jn one of his light moments Baxter noted tlia' if 
a missile were to land on Weslovei- Aii- Base, Amheist would In in 
the crater. 

Fall out, in President Baxtei's minil does not constitnh a 
tlireat to our life as yet and he commenled Imther that there \', is 
not enough fissionable maleiial in the woild lo blow up the eailli. 

The cm-rent situation in liiissia aceoiding to our best intelli- 
gence reports is that the Soviet (vonomv is feeling the stiain of 
the cold war. Wheieas their gross national |)i-oduet is onlv 'iic

America's present |)oliev ttivvarils Russia and her salellilcs is 
the concept of the deterrent war. Previously the defense svsh m 
backing up the theory has not been in good shape but now is 
working better. It takes a great deal of mouev and constant leaili- 
ni^ss. Baxter went on to comment that it is not enough to just dch r 
because there still is the possibility of an atomic war. The Hns- 
sians are willing to wait nnlil om- economy collapses and llirn 
make their demands. 

The other alternative to this situation is the limited w.n.

for us. Iheir snpeiioritv in ground lorces will give them a 
advantage. .\ deteirenee poliev is fine savs Baxtei'. if il works hut 
it is on the other hand expensive and lheoretie;il. 

Piesident Haxtei' does not advocate the suspension of tests 
at this time. The eontinuance ol tests, however, brings up the 
i|iiestioii ol whether we want clean or dirty bombs. CJlean wai- 
heads may be most nselnl in anti-missile missiles whereas diil\' 
bombs are the onlv practical ollensive weapons. 

Baxter concluded on an optimistic note about the rel;iti\c 
stiengths ol the two gieat poweis and adv iseil the avoiding of aii\' 
summit conferences at this time.

Born in Czechoslovakia, Frolich 
studied at the Vienna Academy of 
Music. Returning to his native 
land, he wrote a ballet which was 
performed extensively there. Be- 
fore World War II, he went to 
Prance and, among other engage- 
ments, was conductor of the Pol- 
lies Bergere for three years. 

Comes To U. S. 

Frolich arrived In the United 
States with his family In 1951. He 
remained in New York for six years 
as director of two subsidiaries of 
Capitol Records. After conducting 
his own orchestra and arranging 
chamber music, Frolich conducted 
the orchestra of the Slavenski- 
Franklin Ballet Co. at the AMT 
in 1953. 

He led the orchestra for Agnes 
DeMaille and her ballet troupe for 
two years as well as conducting op- 
era in St, Louis, light opera in Mil- 
waukee and Denver and the New 
York Philharmonic at Lewisohn 
Stadium. Last year Fi-olich accept- 
ed a position as Professor of Mu- 
sic at the University of Miami in 
Ohio. He also conducted the mus- 
ical comedy, "Four To Go", the

Two infield errors by Bowdoin 
and a single by Todt loaded the

tripled and Bill Hedeman brought 
him home with a sacrifice fly. 

Todt allowed only four Polar 
Bear hits but eight walks and three 
wild pitches kept him in trouble 
through much of the game. The 
Ephmen committed three errors 
and ran off one double play.

Chairman Hassler '59, reported 
that his committee was not iu fa- 
vor of including written work done 
outside of class (research papers) 
under the honor system pledge. He 
stated, however, that the Commit-

constitution of the system to fa- 
cilitate future changes which 
might be desirable. The require- 
ment is at present that "three- 
fourtlis of those present at a mass 
meeting of the College" approve 
the proposed change subject to a 
faculty vote. 


Hassler also reported that the

In protest to restrictions of

Pusey Uses Harvard Radio Show 
To Raise Faculty Salary Question 

In what Time Magazine called 
"an attempt at alumni-lightening," 
Harvard University sponsored an 
hour-long radio show entitled "The 
Case for the College." 

The program was designed to de- 
fine just what a college education 
should be: "A progression from 
cocksure ignorance to — at least — 
thoughtful uncertainty." 
For All 

In spite of the program's pur- 
pose of spurring alumni to aid 
Harvard's $82,500,000 fund drive. 
President Nathan Pusey was 
speaking to the nation as a whole 
when he raised the ever-present 
question of faculty salaries: " . . .

you must care not only about stu- 
dents but also about teachers . . .

New Sound At WMS 

Faculty Salaries Drive 
Education Cost Higher 

Stereophonic Sound 

WMS/WCFM. laclio station ot Williams (JolleKc, acqiiiird a

the icniaikahlc qiialitv ol soundini^ as though the listener were in 
ihc tenth row eenter of a theater. 

The stereophonie effect is achieved by playing back a stereo 
tape, which has two sound tracks recorded by two microphones. 
(i\(r (wo sejiarate systems. \VMS/\\C>FM now has the facilities 
lor playing stereo ta|)es over the air without any future changes

:i.i an FM radio the other side of 
I ho room, a student living in one 
0.' the dorms will find that the ef- 
lic: from the two speakers adds 
depth anu dimension to the music. 

Since WMS is piped to the 
dorms through the college elec- 
trical system, the stereophonic 
.sound is at present only available 
lo students living in the dorms. 
Next year the Main Street frater- 
nity houses will be able to pick 
up the new effect and further ex- 
lension will take place as money 
i.i obtained. 

The Station President Dave 
Stoner commented: "The new 
stereophonic broadcasting is the 
only opportunity to experience this 
type of broadcasting in the West- 
ern Massachusetts - Ea.stern New 
York area." 

The station is presently trans- 
mitting one program per week on 
Thursday nights from 7:30-8:00 
p.m. The number of programs will 
be increased as more stereo tapes 
are added to the station's "Ed- 
ward Talmadge, Jr. Stereophonic 
rape Library." 

The original idea for this Stere- 
ophonic Tape Recorder came from 
the former President of the sta- 
tion, Ted Talmadge, Williams col- 
lege senior who was killed earlier 
this year in a plane crash. 

By John Good i 

In a forlorn letter to her par- 
ents, a freshman girl at the Uni- 
versity of Miami in Ohic wrote, 
" rising costs may prevent 
some of the kids from returning 
next year." 

Although there is not much more 
documentation other than this let- 
ter that today's college generation 
is being "priced out" of education, 
a "New York Times" article reveal- 
ed that rising costs in the past two 
decades have been astonishing. 
Costs More Than Doubled 

Education costs have more than 
doubled since 1940. A student at 
Dartmouth in 1934 could get a 
year's education, including room 
and board, for $860. Today, his 
son pays $1,910. A student entering 
Williams in 1940 paid $400 for 
tuition. If he were to enter next 
year, it would oe $1100. Similar 
increases in cost have occurred all 
over the country. 

The rising costs are mainly at- 
tributable to a long delayed and 
widely advocated increase in fac- 

ulty salaries. Increasing numbers 
of college students have also neces- 
sitated new accommodations to 
handle the influx. 

Situation at Williams 

WiiLams has successfully kept 
pace with these two demands. A 
$1,500,000 building program start- 
ed in 1949 was completed this year. 
Faculty salaries were raised for the 
second time on two years in Feb- 
ruary, placing the average pay for 
Williams professors well above the 
average for the country. 

But what about future needs of 
the college? College Treasurer 
Charles A. Poehl stated, "There 
is still more to be done. The ques-

NoIIner's Appointment At Princeton 
Announced By University Trustees 

An announcement by the trus- 
tees of Princeton University offi- 
cially confirmed the appointment 
of Walter Nollner as Assistant Pro- 
fessor of Music and director of the 
Princeton University Glee Club. 

Nollner came to Williams in 1950 
as instructor of Music. In 1951 he 
took over as director of the Wil- 
liams College Glee Club. He is 
now serving in that capacity and 
as Assistant Professor of Music. 

At Princeton next year, Nollner 
will direct the 70 voice varsity Glee 
Club which is 20 men larger than 
the Williams group he has con- 
ducted these past six years. 

Nollner finished up this year's 
Glee Club concert schedule with a 
concert with Sarah Lawrence in 
Bronxville, New York on Monday. 
His final plans for the group is 
their annual banquet scheduled 
for sometime in May. 

Born in Oakland, California,

Copeland Notes High 
Quality Of Applicants 

Acceptances for the Class of 1962 
are in the mails. 

After receiving approximately 
2400 preliminary applications and 
having 1600 of them completed. Di- 
rector of Admissions Frederick 
Copeland announced that a large 
number of acceptances had been 
sent out. It is expected that 60 
per cent of those accepted will 
come to Williams. As has been the 
i^ractice in the past, the accep- 
tances were divided evenly between 
ijrep and high school students. 

Copeland noted that the task 
of the Admissions Committee was 
extremely difficult this year be- 
cause of the high average quality 
of the students shown by their 
school records and College Board 
Examination results. Also adding 
to the difficulty was the strong 
desire to come to Williams evi- 
denced by a great number of ap- 

Copeland felt that "This fact in- 
dicates that schools, and probably 
parents, are doing more prelimin- 
ary screening than they have done 
in the past, because they recog- 
nize the increased pressure in ad- 
missions in certain selective col- 

Council Suggests 
Firearm Lockup; 
Barnett Neutral 

By a vote of 8-4, the College 
Council Monday night approved a 
recommendation to the adminis- 
tration that all firearms owned 
by students be registered and kept 
locked up by the college police. Un- 
der the proposal, a student would 
be allowed to withdraw a gun from 
the arsenal for a specified purpose 
and length of time "subject to 
disciplinary action" for violations. 

Rich Moe '59, who introduced 
the resolution, stated that Chief 
Royal of the college police was 
willing to administer the plan if 
he is provided with storage space 
for the guns. 

Dean Vincent M. Barnett, Jr. 
stated Wednesday that "the ad- 
ministration will consider care- 
fully any recommendation the Col- 
lege Council makes," but that he 
"personally regrets that the occa- 
sional misuse of firearms by a very 
small minority of the students" 
might occasion a request for this 
type of action. 

Tlie college rule book states that 
all firearms owned by students 
must be registered with the dean 
each year and that they must be 
stored "preferably under lock and 
key" with the firing mechanism 
disengaged. The dean personally 
reads this section of the rules to 
each student who registers a gun. 

Reliable sources contend that 
the college will take no definite 
action other than the appointment 
of a faculty committee to study 
the matter until the recent shoot- 
ing incident can be viewed in its 
proper perspective, probably not 
until next fall. 

Wagner's Music And Significance 
Discussed At Phi Bete Colloquium 

A rescheduled colloquium on 
Wagner and Die Moistersinger was 
presented by Phi Beta Kappa So- 
ciety, Tuesday night in Griffin 
Hall. The participants were Mr. 
Frank E. Kirby, instructor in Mu- 
sic, Mr. William A. Little, instruc- 
tor in German, Jim Becket '58, 
and Bob Leyon '58; Bill Harter '58, 
served as moderator. 

Becket began the discussion with 
a review of Wagner's personal life. 
The fact that he lived in a period 
of revolution and great political 
thinkers was stressed. 

Composer's Style Cited 

Wagner's style was discussed by 
Leyon. He emphasized the inno- 
vations Wagner brought to opera. 
These new ideas were centered a- 
round the playdown of the inde- 

pendent aria and the subsequent 
emphasis on orchestration. 

Little discussed the intellectual 
concerns of Wagner as related to 
his time and contemporaries. In 
general the works of Wagner show 
him looking In retrospect to an 
age of unity in Germany when 
communal activities in the small 
towns expressed the pure spirit of 
the German race. 

Romantic Influence 

The windup to the colloquium 
was delivered by Kirby who spoke 
of Wagner's effect on opera itself 
and his general characteristics. He 
noted that Wagner's purpose was 
a fusion into one separate art of 
the arts of painting, music, lit- 
erature and drama. Thus his work 
has a universal element in it that 
was the goal of all romantics. 

Celebrated Violinist Joseph Szigeti 
Gives 3 Contemporary Concerts 

Jose|ih S/igeti, world renowned violin virtuoso, is giving a 
series of three concerts on Wednesday, Tluirsday and Sahirday 
night at 8:30. The concerts, in Chapiii Hall, arc sponsored by the 
Department of Music, and are free to the public. 

Szigeti, famous for his daring and venturesome programming, 
has been acclaimed for his appearances throughout Euroi^e, in 
North and South America and the East. His concert here reflects 
his inteiest in modern music. He was a close friend of his country- 
man, Bela Bartok, and many of the other modern composers, whose 
works he performs. 

Szigeti is accompanied by Carlo Bussotti, who has appeared in 

Europe and, with Szigeti, in the 
United States. The present tour 
has covered more than twenty 
colleges and universities In the 
U. S., and is Szigeti's last, before

issued weekly over the next two 
months and Burns is asking read-

in other letters to the editor. 

The objective of these letters, he 
said, is two-fold. First, "to lay out 
in coherent fashion before the 
rush and roar of the campaign a 
set of thoughtful and well-consid-

Second, "to arouse comment on 
the part of voters so that I will be

We .strongly hope that the college adminis- 
tratioii will turn clown the (lollei^^e Coiiiicil's 
recommendation that all .stuileiit iirearnis be 
kept by the (College Poliee and srjven on re<|iiest 
to their owners for a limited time only. 

Their a-ssumjitioii seems to bo that all stu- 
dents here could )iotentially misuse firearms as 
two students did last week. 

We bave more faith in sanity of the student 
body, and would not like to see tbem bound by 
rules which belong in a ))re]) school. 

The centralization of Sjjrinj; Street ad soli- 
citation planned by Pipen- of tbe CCF will re- 
duci' town-j^own frictions and enable the ad dc- 
|)artnu'nts of collej^e publications to use their 
iiifreiniity freely off Si^rin^ Street. 

The iMO|)osal introduced by Manj^el to ceu- 
trali/e the house|)arty ta.x, however, was a j^ross 
misuse of the "bijr {rovernnient" idea. We are 
relieved that the Coimeil turned it down. 

llousepaities, we feel, do not come imder per- 
sonal welfare. They are sadly over-institiitiouali/.- 
ed now, and Manj^el's ])lan would have made 
them more so. Whether one wishes to entertain 
a jruest at organized honse|5arty functions should 
always remain an individual ehoiee. 

It is entirely ridiculous to impose a $10 on 
e\ery student at die beginniiijr ot each year for 
student Union Dances and crowded jazz concerts 
wbicli many do not attend. We would come to 
the |)oint where one couldn't be a student at 
Williams without payinj^ a $10 for the "bifr week- 

Last Monday the CC did not carry tlieir 
"socialism" too far. It is good, we feel, when ap- 
plied to the ritrht things. 

We watch warily, wonderinff whether tliey 
will continue to walk this side of the line. 


The College Council— still haunted, it seems, 
by the kind of criticism re])resented by the let- 
ter which ap]5ears on this jiage— has taken some 
quick and clecisive action lately. 

It holds little jiolitical power. Existing in a 
justifiably uTidemocratic academic environment 
which is smoothly run by ]5rofessional educators 
whose business is not houseparty taxes or year- 
book problems but the enlightenment of young 
minds, the (>C still has a small voice in college 

This small voice was (|iiite outspoken at last 
Monday's meeting, and from tbe action taken 
theie we notice a trend. 

It has acted— not to fire up public opinion as 
last year's Council tried so unsuccessfully to do 
—but to consolidate for tbe sake of efficiency 
certain camiDus activities, and to buttress with 
"state aid " activities whicb have been fast fall- 
ing by the wayside. 

We have moved into an era of "big govern- 
ment," thanks largely to the formation of the 
CCF vvliich adds the realities of the purse to CC 

Big government is a good thing when it is 
concerned with real ]Dublic welfare. The college 
needs a yearbook, and the CCF grant of $925 
to back up any losses will make one possible 
next year without compromising the business 
initiative of the Gul editors. 

Letters To The Editor 


I'o the RECORD: 

Messrs. Edgar and Hassler have perhaps 
clean hands" after ha\ing made their judgment 
on the six groups of ])eo|Dle with "dirty hands". 
1 am not, however, concerned with the question 
of their own conscience. It is the ambiguity of 
ihtir language that brings me to this partial 
analvsis of these gentlemen's article, "THE 

Whether the story stinkcd or not, I will not 
ask. Everyone has a different uose. And the whole; 
purpose of communication is to establish a ])os- 
sible region of agreement or disagreement and 
not to settle a i3rol)lem on a couclusi\e and eter- 
nal ground. What is needed is therefore not an 
absolute agreement on the question of whethei' 
the story stinked or not, but it will be sufficient 
for om' ]Durpose if everyone of us can make his 
o|Dinion or jjrejudice intelligible. 

To illustrate the ambiguity of these gentle- 
men's language, I will use only one example out 
of their six verdicts on the guilty ))eo|5le. Messrs. 
Edgar and Hassler declare that "those who laugh- 
ed—faculty included— are guilty". 

F'irst of all, if a person is guilty, he or she is 
guilty "of" what he or she has done or has been. 
It follows then that those who laughed must be 
guilty of their ]3articular act of laughing or their 
being capable of doing so. The latter case, how- 

ever, is hardly plausible, for, if it be true, they must assdt 
that the verdict is logically tantamount to .saying that min 
is guilty of being man. However, profound this thesis ni,i\' 
he, the meaning of guilt hecomi's synonymous with humaiiii\. 
i.e.', ability to laugh in this case. The absindity of this arbitr;ii\ 
"theological" fantasy, if 1 am right, can hi- seen by any "reasoniihl, " 

From the foregoing argmnent it becomes clear that the mejn- 
ing of their verdict is more likely to be that thosi- who langli.d 
are guilty of their act of laughing in this particular case. 15u(, we 
must ask, is all laughter of thi' same kind? Hy no means. 

For our |)iupose, we can distinguish three different kinds ol 
laughter. The first of belongs t() |5urc imioeence. Hy in,,,,. 
fence 1 mean a stag<; of unexamined life in which one's conseidns- remains inarticulate and thus, in Platonic terms, wortliK ,s. 
The laughter of innocence is then inexcapable of all guilt. 

The second kind is of the comical quality. It is an al)snnlii\ 
of a given situation that invites men of articulate couscionsin ^s 
to laugh. If Messrs. Edgar and Hassler would havi' it that lliis 
kind of comic laughter is a guiltv act, I would them to ili- 
elare also all tears of tragedy to be guilty. 

The third kind of laughter can be cla.ssified as the demonic 
laughter of malice and ]H'r\erted desire. 

Which out of these three laughters did Messrs. Edgar ai,il 
Hassler mean when they said that those who laughed are guilu? 
For my own part, I myself laiiglied. The absurdity and ridiculcuis 
nature of the whole .story seemed to give an enough comic (|uiili!\- 
to it. Shot-gunning and throwing eherrybonibs! Woidd you blamr 
me if I feel funny about it? 

As I said at the beginning, it is not my business to refute Hie 
contention of Messrs. Edgar and Hassler. Their meaning is li.) 
thin to be refuted. 1 am merely jjointing out the fact that the la. k 
of precise and articulate language makes their article" a piece nl 
meaningless and, to a ceilain extent, ahsiud reasoning. 

May 1 also add that these gentlemen's serious and "holy" as- 
sumption or )Mesum|5tion made me laugh again?

Varsity Lacrosse Trounces Union: 
Boynton Misses National Record 

Sophomore Figures 
In 15 Of 26 Tallies 

Led by attackman George Boyn- 
lon, the Williams lacrosse team 
overpowered Union last Tuesday 
on Cole Field by a 26-3 score. 
Boynton came within one goal of 
breaking the National Intercolle- 
giate scoring record. 

Williams opened the scoring at 
4 : 18 of the first period when Boyn- 
ton slipped an unassisted shot past 
the Union goalie for the first tally. 
One minute later he repeated the 
action to put Williams into a 2-0 
lead. Boynton's second goal was 
followed closely with scores by 
Cotton Pite, Jim Richardson, Nick 
Ratcliffe, and Hal McCann. After 
Waite put Union into the scoring 
column with a late period shot, 
Boynton again scored unassisted 
to bring the score to 7-1 at the 
end of the first quarter. 
Ten in the Second 

The second period saw Williams 
jontinue the deluge with ten more 
goals. Boynton began the period 
with two more fast goals. After 
Boynton came Rog Dankmeyer, 
Dick Lisle, Richardson, Boynton 
again, Ratcliffe, Boynton, Doodles 
Weaver, and Palmer White. Waite 
tallied a second time for Union 
to make it 17-2. 

The Williams attack slacked off 
a little in the second half though 

NICE TRY! Sophomore Rogrgie Dankemeyer fires one of Williams 
26 goals past the nimble Union defender. 

they still managed to control the 
ball almost completely around the 

Union net. Wheels Miller and Har- 
ry Bowdoin added scores as well 
as repeats by Ratcliffe, McCann, 
Weaver, Fite (2), and Boynton 
(2). Cassidy completed the scor- 
ing for Union with a shot at 7; 32 
of the fourth period. 

Almost Sets Record 
Playing almost the entire game 
for the Ephs, Boynton came with- 
in one goal of setting a new inter- 
collegiate record for scoring in a 
regular lacrosse game. The pres- 

sure on the small Sophomore at- 
tackman mounted rapidly toward 
the end of tlie fourth quarter with 
the record in sight. With the Un- 
ion defense tightly guarding him, 
Boynton took a pass behind the 
crease, dodged a defenseman, and 
whistled a fast shot into the net 
for his final goal at 14:54 to re- 
gister nine goals and six assists 
for the game, one short of break- 
ing the old ten goal, five assist 
record. No time remained for an- 
other attempt.

Educational T. V. 
Given Approval 

United States Commissioner of 
Education Lawrence O. Dertliick 
has signified his approval of edu- 
cational television. 

In a foreword to a report pub- 
lished by the Department of 
Health Education and Welfare Dr. 
Derthick said that educational tel- 
evision "as a means of supplement- 
ing the regular classroom work of 
our schools, possesses a great po- 
tential in thus aiding the teacher 
in her task of instruction." 

Although many educators fear 
that television will encroach where 
personal contact between student 
and teacher is needed, it is be- 
coming increasingly obvious that 
TV has been eminently successful 
in fields far beyond the lecture. 
Some 400 separate college courses 
are being taught by television.

Williams Places fifth 
In Ohio State Regatta 

Last weekend Williams was rep- 
resented at the Ohio State Inter- 
sectional Sailing Regatta at Ohio 
State University in Columbus. The 
Ephmen placed fifth out of ten 
midwestern schools and were the 
sole representatives of the New 
England Intercollegiate Sailing As- 

Sailing in the meet were Toby 
Smith and Bob Stegeman who 
competed in a total of ten races 
over Saturday and Sunday. The 
regatta was held at the O'Shaun- 
essy Dam outside Columbus with 
the winds mostly puffy. The com- 
petition was lield in "Tech" din- 

Williams was prevented from 
higher standing by two unlucky 
withdrawals early in the regatta, 
but managed to take a share of the 
top places. The individual compe- 
tition was heavy as the Big Ten 
schools were represented by na- 
tionally ranked skippers.

CC-SC Okays Majority Of 
Rushing Agreement Changes 

111 a protracted joint session of the College Coinicil and the Social Council, the majority of mi- 
ijor t'liaiif^e.s m the 1957 rushinjj; aj^reemont recommended hv the joint nisiuiiir committee were ap- 
liroved. 1 he legislatiues voting sejiarately, refused to approve any alteration in the agreement rc- 
gardmir the monetary fine and jx'riod of possihle social nrohation lor fraternities convicted hy the 
nislim^ arbiter, Frank R. Thonis, Jr., of having eiiffiKecl in dirty rusliing. 

Approved was an increase in 
the responsibilities of the rushing 
committee members to allow in- 
fractions of the rushing agreement 
to be reported directly to any 
member or the arbiter rather than 
only to the arbiter as in 1957. 

Rushing Report Calls 
For Stiff er Penalties; 
Grey Cites 'Repairs' 

Rushing Committee Chairman 
Len Grey '59, commented this 
week that his group was "not re- 
constructing, just repairing, the 
present system, while forwarding 
certain suggestions for major 
change in the future." 

Consequently, Grey feels, the 
most vital provisions in his fif- 
teen-page committee report are 
those aimed at buttressing the 
present rushing agreement with 
increased penalties and stronger 
enforcement measures. 

A join'. CC-SC session consid- 
ered the proposals Monday night 
< see above i ; the following is a 
summary of the central changes 

First, believing that "a threat 
which pinches the pocketbook a 
little more will also pinch the 
conscience," the Committee pro- 
posed an increase of the maxi- 
mum fine for fraternity violations 
to $500. The report also asks for 
a semester of social probation as 
an alternative or additional pen- 
alty for violation by fraternity 
members. Concurrent with this 
proposal is a broadening of pen- 
alties for violations by the rushee. 

"It is hoped," says Grey, "that 
a wider range of penalties avail-

Crampton '58 Awarded 
Fulbright Scholarship 

Stuart ]. B. Ciam])ton '58, has just been awarded a Fulbris^ht 
ScIiolarshi|5 to study jihysics, his major, for two years at the Uni- 
\ersity of Durham, (King's College) in Newcastle-on-Tync, Eng- 
land. , , 

The Full)rig]it Scholarshi|js are granted eacli year hy the In- 
ternational Educational Exchange 
Program to promote a better un- 
derstanding of the United States 
in other countries, and to increase 
mutual understanding between the 
peoples of the U. S. and of other 
nations. Nine hundred grants 
were awarded this year to com- 
petitors from the 48 states. Tlie 
last Williams' recipient was Dave 
Kleinbard '56. 

Crampton comes from Green- 
wich, Conn., and attended Hotch- 
kiss School for two years. At Wil- 
liams, he was elected to Phi Bete 
at the end of junior year and also 
received Sophomore Honors. 

For the past two years, he has 
served as an undergraduate teach- 
ing assistant in the physics de- 
partment. Recently he was award- 
ed the Carroll A. Wilson fellowship 
for two years' study at Worces- 
ter College at Oxford. 

Extracurricular Interests 

Crampton's primary extracur- 
ricular interest on campus Is mu- 
sic. For three years he has played 
alto sax In the Purple Knights 
dance band of which he was twice 
president. He has participated In 

Fulbright Scholar 

the football band for four years 
and has served two terms on the 
S. A. C. Crampton is a member of 
Sigma Phi. 

Crampton's future plans include 
obtaining a Ph. D. in physics, the 
subject he hopes to teach at the 
university level. 

Chapel Committee 
Completes Report 

Williams students go to more 
than the required number of cha- 
pels and yet they resent being 
compelled to go at all. 

This apparent Paradox is re- 
vealed in the delayed report of 
the College Council's Committee 
on Compulsory Chapel. A ques- 
tionnaire distributed to the stu- 
dent body showed that 65 per cent 
of the students answering the poll 
favored voluntary attendance at 
Chapel or church over compul- 
sory attendance. A check against 
attendance figures revealed that 
the average Williams student at- 
tends 18 chapels a year, four more 
than the required number. 

The report which will be sub- 
mitted to the College Council next 
Monday makes no .specific recom- 
mendation for a change in the 
present system. Rather, it lists a 
set of four proposed changes or 
amendments to the present sys- 
tem, with arguments for and a- 
gainst each. 

Proposed Changes 

One change advocated by the 
committee is to make attendance 
at chapel or church voluntary. 
The committee felt that attitude 
towards religion on the Williams 
campus was such that a truly 
detrimental drop in chapel atten- 
dance would not occur with abo- 
lition of the compulsory rule. Vol- 
untary attendance would also de- 
tract from the various means of 
circumventing the rule, such as 
attendance at the Jewish services 
on Friday. 

Other recommendations enum- 
erate credit for chapels attended 
away from Williamstown if the 
compulsory aspect were retained. 
A third recommendation advocat- 
es a series of "secular" lectures 
dealing with the religious aspects 
of philosophy, history, art, litera- 
ture, psychology, etc. The fourth 
proposal would grant chapel cre- 
dit for any student who took re- 
ligion 1-2. 

The committee was made up 
of Bill Edgar "59, chairman, Mike 
Baring-Gould '59, John Good '60, 
Al Martin '60, Tom Connoley '58, 
and Steve Rose '58. 

Married Students 

A proposal that married sopho- 
mores in rushing be excluded 
from the quota system for houses 
was defeated largely because of 
the feeling that these students 
did not want to be separated as 
a group from the rest of the col- 
lege. Junior or senior transfer 
students will be exempted, how- 

Integrity Pledge 

A large part of the discussion 
centered about the possible ob- 
jectivity of members of the rush- 
ing committee. Tlie members of 
the committee and the arbiter are 
the only persons allowed in the 
sorting center during rusliing 
week. They are all fraternity 
members, t'wo of them house pre- 
sidents. Proposals to hire secre- 
taries to sort the cards and to 
raise the number on the rushing 
committee to 15 (one per house) 
were defeated. The two house pre- 
sidents on the committee volun- 
teered to withdraw from the sort- 
ing process and the meeting rec- 
ommended that the committee 
formulate an honor pledge cover- 
ing the possibility of sorting ex- 
perience affecting a committee- 
man's actions as a fraternity 

Dirty rushing was not defined 
more closely than it is in the pre- 
vious agreement. A long discussion 
of "casual phrases and actions" 
vis-a-vis rushees and fraternity 
members was finally curtailed by 
the scheduling of a Social Coun- 
cil meeting to decide whether the 
houses would abide by the letter 
or the spirit of the dirty rushing 
definition contained in the agree- 

Bell Presents Forum; 
Blasts Aid Program 

"There is no significant foreign 
economic aid program in the U- 
nited States," said former chief 
economist of the World Bank, 
Bernard Bell in an economics for- 
um Monday night. 

Bell stated that nobody in Wash- 
ington was willing to take on the 
responsibility for the development 
of underdeveloped nations. Most 
of our dollars, he said, go into 
strengthening those nations which 
are vital to our national defense, 
but no comprehensive plan for 
developing countries such as In- 

Bell spoke from the point of 
view of one who has no connection 
with the United States Govern- 
ment. He was with the World 
Bank until 1953, and then re- 
signed to form his own bank de- 
signed to aid backward countries, 
his most recent project being the 
development of Israel.

lected by them. 

The ellort demands elevaLlDii abose person- 
al and tratenial biases m oiuei to continuously 
streni^then the system lor tiie yiocl ol all its cit- 

The men who sat in joint ses.sion of the Col- 
lege and bocial Councils .Monday nif^ht failed to 
acnieve this ele\ation. lliey rcjectetl the Rush- 
inj5 Committees propt)sals lor sirenf;;tliening the 
system of crime ann piinisiimeni in the area of 
ttirty rushing. 

Dirty nisliing is a crime, ft has been defined 
as such by this traterinty system, and that same 
fraternity system is obliged to institute every 
possible means toward eradication of the crime. 

The present and now re-abirineii deterrents 
to dirty rusliiug have pro\ ed inade(|uate. The 
threat as well as die fact of dirty rushing remains 
a stigma on the Williams Iraternity system. 

Vet when the oi5iwrtiinily to buttress the 
deterrent to dirty rushing was |5reseiited, the 
fmtcniilic6- thciunvkcs, through their representa- 
ti\ I's in the Social Council, relusccl to act. 

the rushing committee snggi'sted two ways 
in which the deterrents to dirty rushing could be 
strengthened: replaceincnt ot the single .^jOO 
line lor dirtv rushing with a graduated system ol 
lines 11)5 to $.500, and air increase in the maximum 
penalty to a semester's social |)iol)ation. 

ine recommended change in fines was con- 
sitierecl at length. Both boilies voted the commit- 
tees |)r()|5osai down. Yet when an amendment 
was ])roposed to establish a ininimuin ]KMialty 
of .%'M) and a nia.ximum iicualty of %'M) (which 
woiikl have been a severer deterrent to dirty 
rushing lliaii the present pi'iialty, and would have 
retained the idea of graduated fines) the CC 
\()ti'il yes and the SC remained obstinately at- 
tached to the status ([uo and to the presc^nt, weak- 
er penalty. 

When an amendment was iiitroiliieed to e- 
liminate all fines, both legislatures turned it down 
flat, with platitudinous alfiriiiations of the need 
for strong deterrents to dirty rushing. 

Why, if they felt such a need, did the So- 
cial Council turn down the minimum-ma.ximum 
|}lan which would have been a deterrent? 

And the strangest thing was that the SC's 
"beliefs" again conflicted with its actions when 
the increase in social jirobation was proposed. 
This |)lan would luue been e\eii a stronger de- 
terrent than the maxiimim-minimuin |)lan, as so- 
cial pro is a lingering punishment which causes 
considerable amioyance to the house, whereas a 
fine is often |)aid by |5areiits or alumni. 

Yet, although the CC su|)|iorted it, the SC 
rejected the social-pro |)lan by a solid 10-4 vote, 
which killed the i^laii in the joint session. 

Were the fraternities forgetting their res- 
ponsibility to the college? Did they just want to 
kecji the punishineiit for a crime they can com- 
mit mild? Sadly, it looked that way. 

Letters To The Editor 


To the RECORD: 

However laiidal)le or vulnerable the actions 
of Rose, Ilasslcr and Morse may have been hi 
resigning from their res|5i'ctive fraternities, they 
and the others like them should be admired, if 
not envied bv the fraternity members. Rose, Ilas- 
slcr, and Morse acted on their beliefs, and above 
all, are willing to defend them in public. In jus- 
tifying their resignation in the TOWER, they 
charged the fraternities as being unchristian. 

In the past, the fraternities on this campus 
have been charged with being uneconomical, 
anti-intellectual, and racially discriminatory. How 
can the majority of the student body face these 
chiijges without answering them? It was John 
Winnaeker '57, not an tmdergradiiate, who an- 
swered the charge made liy Rose and the others. 
And even Winnaeker misunderstood the issue in- 
volved in that Rose, Ilassler, and Morse left their 
fraternities because of the way in which they 
were selective and not because they were selec- 
tive. When will the fraternity members leave 
their feeble and occasional posture of defense 
(flat on tlieir hacks) to assert that which is 
worth-while in fraternities? 

With the cost of education itself going up, 

with the need for more time to sijend on studies 
becoming greater, with th(^ pressiues for reali- 
zation of moral ideals growing stronger on col- 
lege campuses, when will thi' fraternity members 
stand on their beliefs in face of these develop- 
ments which threaten for existence and the de- 
sirability ol the fraternity? 

Unless fraternity members take the respons- 
ibility fur answermg the charges made against 
theiii, unless they assert tlieir beliels as Rose 
and the oUiers have done, tlie antliurities on this 
camiHis will liave no other choice than to be- 
lieve that tlie charges are true, and eventaully 
act accordinj;ly. The future— the late— of frater- 
nities then will be determini'd by intli\iduals 
outside the fraternity system, tliereby negating 
tne lundaineiital value of fraternal institutions: 
learning to act as responsibk' individuals with 
till' rignt and the power to jnstily theniscKes in 
the eyes ot society. And the neixl lor justification 
is now. I'or all the fraternities are liable under 
the charge ot being unchristian as well as un- 
economical, and anti-intellectual. 

If all fraternities on this campus may c.x|)eet 
eventual change or dissolution from their present 
state (and they may), they should be |)re])ared 
to change or dissohe of tlieir own accord, based 
on their known beliefs. Perhaps then, will indivi- 
duals hke Rosi', Ilassler, and Morse at least re- 
s|3ect fraternity uiembers for their beliefs how- 
e\er \iilnerable or laudable they may be. 
Philip M. Rideout '58 


To the RECORD: 

.\t a time when the financial success or fail- 
ure of the "Cul" is the focal point of strident 
claims, connter-claims and other fellow-travel- 
,'is c 1 any eain|iiis controxersy, no one seems to 
:i()iiee the tolcil uhscncc of anything resembling 
an organized eampns literary magazine. "Coin- 
inent dietl rather nngraeefuliy after its first )iub- 
lieatiou last year; since then, the only organ for 
serious student writing has been the mimeo- 
graphed |iam|ihlet that the Comp Classes jnit 
out. It was a near miracle that even this came 
out at all. 

■'Comment", like the "Cul", found its Wa- 
terloo in financial attrition. 1 have no idea of the 
extent of the '"Gul" staff's res])onsil)ility for its 
dilemma; |H'rhaps it was mismanagement, per- 
haps not. At any rate, "Comment's" death was 
ine\itable. A ]iublication of its kind can never 
he a financial success at Williams College. The 
pr()|)()rtioii of undergraduates who will condes- 
cend to shell out their money for a \olume of ad- 
inittedl\ anuiteiir literature is doomed to remain 

Should this drab ri'alization sound the death 
knell tor a Williams literary magazine? fn any 
institution that calls itself a liberal arts college, 
1 .slioukl hope not. yVrt— and, desjiite some ob- 
jections, this is art— has never and will never be 
a mass media. It almost always has to be subsi- 
dized, |iatronized. It can never be measured or 
jiistilied by a clollars-and-eents yardstick; ironi- 
cally, but inevitably, it depends ujion these dol- 
lars and cents to survive. 

From the tenet of Mark IIo|)kins and his log 
on up, Williams has always |int a heavv stress 
iijioii indixidual creativity. We organize semi- 
nars, discussion groups and conferences for this 
pur|iose. We spend a bnge amount of moiiev on 
labs for our budding scientists. We can even af- 
lord a vcrij slick alumni magazine. How in the 
world can we rationallv allow or condone the 
absence of a literary magazine, which is in it- 
self a "lab" for promising writers? 

The answer is (|uite simple: we cannot. Wil- 
liams has always seemed to produce a number 
of capable authors. A glance at any time, during 
any yeai', at the bookstore windows will confirm 
this, [t seems iiliotic to ignore this excellent re- 
cord; yet we are doing just that. An actor can 
give vent to his creativity and be heard at the 
■'\MT. Rut the writer, who also needs an au- 
dience, has no means to attain one. 

Com]iared to a theatre production or an 
e(|uipped laboratory, the cost of a literary mag- 
azine is almost infinitesemally small. Neverthe- 
less, it has to be paid— and by whom? Since a 
good niiniber of the student body would un- 
doubtedly be not at all interested in such a pub- 
lication (and while this in itself does not speak 
at all well for Williams, it is an undeniable fact), 
it seems lather unfair to tax the entire undergrad- 
uate groii)). This leaves two alternatives; a Col- 
lege subsidy, or siip])()rt by some healthier gronji, 
such as the "Cow' or the "Record". Of the two, 
the former is by far the jireferable; the college 
is a far more stable jiatron than the students. 

Mr. Ogilv ie of the English Department, in 
his prehice to this vear's |iam|ililet entitled "Wil- 
liams (Campus Writing", remarked that, "despite 
the clisa|)pearance of "Comment" from the scene, 
undergiaduales still write, and write interesting- 
ly well, and . . . an audience which will want to 
r(>ad what they write exists as always." 

This is, in reality, a challenge to the admin- 
istration as the upholders of the intellectnal in- 
tegrity of Williams College. 

Can they ignore it?

To the RECORD;

On Campus 


(By ihe Author of "Rally Round the Flag, Boys! "and, 
"Barefoot Boy with Cheek") 


Spring is here— the season of tree-sitting contests. This I ap- 
plaud. Tree-sitting is healthful and jolly and as American as 
apple pie. Also it keeps you off the streets. 

Tree-sitting is not, however, without its hazards. Take, for 
example, the dread and cliilling ciise of Miuuicl .Sif;!ifoos and 
Ed Sweeney, both sophomores at the Nashville College of Folk 
Music and Woodworking, and both iiiiully in love with a t)cau- 
tiful alto named Ursula Thing, who won their hearts sinning 
that fine old folk song, / Stranyled My True Love irith Her Own 
Yellow Braids, and I'll Never Eat Her Sorghum Any More. 

Both Manuel and Ed pressed ITrsula to go steady, but she 
could not between them, and finally it was decided that 
the boys would have a tree-sitting contest, anil Ursula would 
belong to the victor. So Manuel and I'aI clainlx'red uj) adjoin- 
ing aspens, taking with them the following necessaries: food, 
clothing, bedding, reading matter, and— most essential of all— 
plenty of Marlboro Cigarettes. 

We who live on the ground know how much you get to like 
with a Marlboro. Think how much more important tliey must 
be to the lonely tree-dweller— how much more welcome their 
fine, mild tobacco; how much more gratifying their free-drawing 
filters; how much more comforting their sturdy, crushproof 
flip-top box. Climb a tree and see for yourselves. 


Well supplied with Marlboros, our heroes began their tree- 
sitting contest— Manuel with good heart, ImI with evil cunning. 
The shocking fact is that crafty Etl, all unbeknownst to Manuel, 
was one of three identical triplets. Each night while Manuel 
dozed on his bough, one of Ed's brothers— Fred or Jed-would 
sneak up the tree and replace him. "How can I lose?" said Ed 
with a fiendish giggle to his brother Fred or Jed. 

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

After seven or eight years Ed and his brothers wearied of the 
contest and conceded. Ursula Thing came to Manuel's tree 
and cried, "I am yours ! Come down and pin me." 

But Manuel declined. Instead he asked Ursula to join him 
in the tree. This she could not do, being suiiject to mopery 
(a morbid allergy to woodpeckers), so she ended up with Ed 
after all. 

Only .she made a mistake— a very natural mistake. It was

What's an eight-letter word which

the answer's always Coke!

Poll Shows Seniors 
Favor Fraternities 

One hundred and sixty one of 180 Williams seniors answeriiii!; 
a speeial liKCOfiD poll stated that tliey believed that the frater- 
nity .system at Williams is worth |ireservinf^. Sesenteeii answered 
"no", and two had no opinion. 

The poll stemmed from the widespread eritieism of the fra- 
ternity wliieh arose after three Irateniity meiiihers left the system

Second, to alleviate the dual

well as the rushing arbiter, and 
(2) they can also discuss ques-

Believing that current condi-

of total opportunity unfeasible and 
that existent machinery is suffi-

the report reserves more vigorous 
T. O. plans as suggestions for the 

Hitting, Fielding Only Weaknesses 
Of Otherwise Strong Faculty Team 

"This year's edition of the facul- 
ty Softball team has two weaknes- 
ses." ruefully admitted MacAlis- 
ter Brown, "impotence at the 
plate and a defense approximating 
a sieve." Player-manager Brown 
quickly added, though, that the 
team has good potential, and it's 
only a matter of time before they 
round themselves into shape. 

Brown noted the many problems 
hindering the team's progress. He 
cited committee meetings which 
conflict with practice sessions and 
a complete lack of conditioning as 
the knottiest. Timing is way off, 
he complained, after long hours 
at the desk. 

First Team 

The starting lineup at each 
game is usually dependent on who 
shows up. At full strength, 
though, the team would probably 
be as follows; first base - Kermit 

Gordon (He owns a first base- 
man's glove), second base - Vin- 
cent Barnett. third base - former 
Williams varsity great, Pi-ed 
Stocking, and short stop - Gerry 

On the mound is John Chand- 
ler, and behind the plate is a 
flashy rookie up from the mid- 
west, Robert Kozelka. Sharing 
the catching chores is veteran re- 
ceiver Henry Flynt. Patroling the 
pastures is capable ball hawk Pete 
Pelham, assi-sted by Messrs. Rams- 
dell, Hirsche, Rensenbrink, Dick- 
ensoir, Perez, Coffin, Brown, and 
Sachs. (It's a wide outfield.) 

Morale Good 

The team lost its first intra- 
mural game by the rather lopsided 
score 18-5 to Zeta Psi. However, 
spirit remains high, and the boys 
still hope for a winning season. 

Only seniors who are members 
of houses, not including social 
members, were questioned, and of 
those eligible 90 per cent com- 
pleted the questionnaire. 

Social Life Reason 

Of those who maintained that 
the fraternity system is worth 
preserving, the largest number 
listed opportunities for social ac- 
tivity and formation of "close and 
lasting" friendships as their prin- 
ciple reasons. 

Twenty three men thought that 
fraternities should be preserved 
because of selectivity, while only 
ten held that tradition and rep- 
utation made them worthwhile. 

One hundred and seventeen of 
the 161 fraternity supporters 
thought that there were aspects 
of the fraternity system which 
could be improved upon. Twenty 
three held the system to be per- 
fect, while sixteen didn't answer 
this question. 


■ The two improvements which 
were held to be most needed were 
the development of total oppor- 
tunity and the boosting of the 
academic and intellectual capaci- 
ty of the system. Eleven seniors 
tl>ought that the abandonment of 
total opportunity as a goal would 
be an improvement. 

Of the 17 who thought that 
the system was not worth keeping, 
seven listed selectivity and dis- 
crimination as a reason and .seven 
stated that the system "under- 
mines intellectual values and the 
purposes of a liberal education'. 

Only two of the 17 thought the 
fraternity system to be totally bad, 
while eight approved of the 
small-group living aspect of fra- 

House System Advocated 

Six of the 17 men opposing fra- 
ternities advocated a change to a 
house system comparable to that 
at Harvard, with present facilities 
to be utilized.

Wesleyan Succumbs To Thinclads; 
Schweighauser Wins Three Times 

The varsity track team virtually assured itself of a Little Three championship last Friday as 
they ii]3set Wesleyan at Middletown 75 one half - 58 one half, for the first time in ten years. Lead 
by senior Charlie Schweighauser with eighteen points in three evei]|ts. Coach Tony Plansky's squad 
combined in a great team effort to overcome what loomed as the ^inly roadblock on the way to an 

undefeated season. 

Ttie meet was decided in the 
last event, the 220 low hm'dles 
Schweighauser going after his 
third win of the day broke the 
string easily with Bob Hatcher 
taking second to sew up the meet

In addition to his low hurdle vic- 
tory Schweighauser won the high 
hurdles, broad jump, and finish- 
ed second in the high Jump. Sec- 
ond high scorer for the Ephs was 
Hatcher with a win in the discus, 
a second in the shot, and a sec- 
ond in the 220 lows for 11 points.

year Carl Schoeller, holder of the 
school record in the javelin, took

proving his previous best effort

Captain Bill Fox ran well as 
usual and took the 440 in 51.9, as 
well as second in the 220 ahead 
of the ailing Chip Ide. George 
Sudduth improved his previous

Golfers Win Two; B. C. Bows 6-1; 
Ephs Against Strong Colgate Today 

Williams posted its second and 
third wins this week on the Ta- 
conic Golf course over Boston 
College and R.P.I. The win over 
B.C. was somewhat of an upset 
since the eagles had beaten Har- 
vard earlier in the year. 

Hans Halligan led the Ephmen 
with impressive wins in both 
matches. In the 6-1 win over B.C., 
HalUgan beat a highly rated Tom 
Valpone 1 up and came in with a 
74 medal score. Rob Foster and 
Bob Julius came in with identical 
wins of 5 and 4 with Foster tak- 
ing a 76 for the course. Captain 
John Boyd outplayed Mike Pen- 
nell of B.C. to win 1 up. Davis and 
Beemer were also victorious. 

The only loss of the day was a 
close match between Dave Man- 
ning of B.C. and Bill Tuach of 
the home squad. Tuach lost 2 and 
one but was only two strokes off 
the 76 shot by Manning. 
Ephs Crush R. F. I. 

Saturday, Coach Dick Baxter 

saw his strong team overpower a 
weak R.P.I, team, 6)2-;2. Before 
the match began the two teams 
decided to leave all tie scores 
standing and thus Boyd was pre- 
vented from playing his match off 
with Jim Owens of RPI. Halligan 
sewed up his match on the twelfth 
hole and won 8 and 6 as did sev- 
enth man Tim Coburn. The lowest 
medal score for the day that was 
turned in was Julius' 76 but five 
of the matches failed to go the full 

Three Matches This Week 
This week the varsity will play 
seven New England teams in three 
matches. Today the Ephmeh tra- 
vel to Colgate for their toughest 
match so far outside of Harvard. 
Thursday there is a quadrangular 
meet at home against Trinity, 
AIC, and Springfield. Saturday of 
Houseparties, Williams takes on 
Connecticut, Holy Cross, and Mid- 
dlebury which should be a good 

in experience, he commanded 
quite an advantage over his op- 

At the no. 2 position, Tom Shul- 
man came taafck strongly after 
dropping the second set, 7-5, to 
take the final one at love. His tall 
opponent's natural game fell un- 
der Shulman's steady match tac- 
tics. Turner, Leonard, Kingsbury, 
and Davidson all won relatively 
easily in two sets. 

At first doubles, Shulman and 
r'leishman captured a very 
match from Galias and Brukl in 
the final set. Fleishman's power- 
ful serve and volleying together 
with Shulman's strategy paved 
the way to victory. In the second 
doubles match, Davidson and To- 
bin completely crushed the oppo- 
sition with the loss of only one 
game. At third doubles, the team 
of Devereux and Pyle defeated 
McConkey and Judlow in two 
close sets. 

On Monday, rain washed out 
the scheduled home match with 
North Carolina, who are on a one 
week's tour in New England 

This week the varsity has four 
matches scheduled. Today the 
Ephs meet Army at West Point. 

On Thursday, Friday, and Sat- 
urday, Dartmouth, M. I. T., and 
Middlebury, respectively, will be 
played on the home courts.

inning as Wesleyan picked up 
three runs to move ahead for good, 
Vn. v7ith one out Fred Stone 
walked, Carl Ahrens singled to

Williams scored twice in the 
third as Todt came in on Bob I-

Stickmen Topple Tufts; 
Boynton Leads Attack 

Overcoming a 2-0 deficit early in the first quarter, the varsity 
lacrosse team behind the five j^oal attack of George Boynton de- 
feated Tufts by 17-7 at Medford Saturday. 

13oyk()s and l^acos of Tufts scored back to back within three 
minutes of die opening face-off to put the Jumbos into a quick 
lead. Nick liatcliffe of Williams began the scoring for the visitors 
when he slipped one by goalie 
Bournakel on a pass from Rog 

Dankmeyer at 3:28. Ten minutes ; 

later Ratcliffe tallied again with 
Boynton on the assist to tie the 
game at 2-2. 

Ephs Take Lead 

The second period saw Williams 
go into the lead by 7-4. Dankmey- 
er began the scoring at 3:20 witli 
an unassisted shot. He was fol- 
lowed almost immediately by 
Boynton's first of the day at 4:06. 
The sophomore attackman, who 
scored nine times against Union 
last week, tallied three more times 
in the period unassisted to ac- 
count for four of the Ephs' seven 

In the second half Williams 
dominated the game with ten 
more goals. Pit Johnson broke into 
the scoring column for the first 

time with three of the four Purple TONrwhose'fiv'c"goau"and "crghi 
goals m the third period. After assists against Tufts on Saturday 
Boynton and Palmer White tal- r^n h 
lied, Ratcliffe returned with three points. 
more. Jim Richardson and Chuck 
Cutler closed out the game for the 
Ephs with the 16th and 17th goals 

Boynton High Scorer 

Leading the attack for Williams 
again was Boynton with five goals 
and eight assists. Ratcliffe came 
right behind with five' goals and 
two assists. Boynton had totaled 
14 and 14 for the first two games 
this season — a record that sur- 
passes high-scoring Tony Brock- 
elman's ten goals — six assists for 
the 1957 season and amounts to 
roughly one third of the total Eph 
goals so far this year.

"Overweight Eight" Creates Good Will For William; 
Soph Group Hopes To Build A "Singing Tradition" 

The Overweight Eight, Williams' sojihotnore octet, added another to its series of triumphs at 
Skidmore's "Siiigspiration" last Fn'duy niglit. The group was called back for an encore, breaking a 
))reeedent of four years during which no other group was so honored. 

Organized and led hv Dave Paresky, the group has been very successful in building up good will 
for Williams whercNcr they have sung. After a recent concert in Montpelier, Vermont, one family 
was so ini|)ressed with the octet that they sent a letter jiraising them to Williams. 

The group's object, said Sandy 
Smith, one of the singers. Is to 
"establish a singing tradition at 
Williams like the one Ya'e's Whif- 
fenpoofs have built, for example. " 
With two successful season- do- 
hind them, the group will :"u- 'ic 
its aim by cutting a twelve-in?M 
record this summer, representing, 
they hope, a good part of their 
widely varied repertory, which in- 
cludes rock and roll as well as 
ballads and barber shop tunes. 
The octet is composed of Dune 
Brown, Phil Scatturo, Sandy 
Smith. Hal McCann, Bob Kauf- 
mann. Cotton Fite, Ed Eggers, Hal 
Srnith, and Dave Paresky, with 
Dick Gallop as business manager 
and Bob Stern as arranger. 

While the Skidmore appearance 
was probably the most successful 
of the season, the Overweight 
Eight has also given shows In the 
town of Bennington, at Montpe- 
lier, and at Bennett, Wellesley, 
Green Mountain, and Williams.

ces here this year than last be-

Frosh Golfers Lose; 
Exeter Triumphs 4-3 

The Williams yearling golfers 
dropped a close match to a strong 
Exeter team Saturday on a cold, 
windblown, and strange Exeter 
course. Williams was on the short 
end of a 4-3 score. 

Coach Dick Baxter sent out sev 
en men to meet the Exeter crew. 
Of these, Andy MacKechnie, play- 
ing number one, Pete Hager, num- 
ber two, and Dave Campbell, 
number six, won. 

MacKechnie scored a very es- 
timable eighteen hole total of 82 
on the 9 hole, twice-around 
course. The final score of his 
match was 2 and 1. Hager shot a 
sizzling 79 to take a commanding 
4 and 3 victory. And finally Dave 
Campbell, also playing well, shot 
an 84 to take his match 2 up. 
Others who played in a losing

According to onlookers, the 
Ephmen seemed to be hampered 
severely by the strangeness of the 
course, particularly the narrow 
freeways. The Ephs suffered from 
frequently overshooting the out of 
bounds markers. The Exeter squad

Baxter Concludes Lecture Series; 
Discusses 'Most Challenging' World 

President James Phinney Bax- 
ter III drew a picture of Ameri- 
ca facing "a most challenging 
world," in the last of a series of 
lectures before a large audience in 
.Jesup Hall, Monday night. 

The social council, which no 
o'her council had done before, 
sDonsored the lectures which be- 
gan last November. President Bax- 
lir dealt with significant world 
P oblems. 

Stressing the need not only for 
II ilitary power, but for every other 
lj"ssible strength there is in the 
V. !Mld, Baxter pointed out that we 
luust eradicate our weaknesses, 
■■^'ich as racial differences, slums, 
and economic problems. 

Russia Confident 

Russia is confident that In fifty 
years the whole world will be un- 
der communism. Tlie U. S. reces- 
sion, Russian improvements ec- 
onomically and militarily, and 
tlic weakness of free world diplo- 
mats are Russian reasons for be- 
ing confident. "However, the U. S. 
is still enormously superior," Bax- 
ter said. 

Baxter sees no large scale war 
for three years, but a future war 
will probably involve nuclear wea- 
pons on a large .scale. By a policy 
of subversion and ambiguity, Rus- 
sia will carry on a limited war. 

Foreign Policy 

"Once we welch on an alliance 
Policy, anywhere, we will seriously 


significant problems 

damage our foreign relations," 
Baxter pointed out. The foreign 
policy must be continued for 
building strength in our allies, and 
improving relations abroad. 

We need a diplomatic solution 
and a decision by Russia for 
peaceful coexistence. A summit 
conference, however, in 1958 would 
only serve to advance Russia's 
propaganda policy to weaken our

Williamstown Has Bad 
Year With B&M Trains 

The recent announcement by 
the Boston and Maine Railroad 
cancelling three trains servicing 
the Williamstown-North Adams 
area tops off a year that has seen 
the luxury uf frequent and direct 
rail service effectively erased. 

Although no letters have been 
written to Mr. McGinnis, head of 
the B&M. Williams students have 
felt the pinch of the surrounding 
mountains as tlicy close in on the 
campus. The most drastic cut in 
service has been the complete cur- 
tailment of train service between 
Williamstown and the Albany- 
Troy area. In fact, no B&M trains 
proceed further than Williams- 
town. This move, obviously made 
for economy, has greatly increased 
the problem of making connec- 
tions with the main line of the 
New York Central Railroad. 

The college is not the only in- 
stitution in Williamstown to 
mourn the passing of the iron 
horse. The Williams Inn has also

The rites of spring as practiced 
by the Williams College cult 
should begin, if the stars tell true, 
at four o'clock on the afternoon 
of Friday, May 2. Then, it is said, 
the Williams Tennis team will do 
battle with Dartmouth and the 
golf team will meet Trinity, AIC, 
and Springfield. But this is only 
tlie beginning. 

"Ballyhoo", a reincarnation of 
the carnival spirit as well as the 
all-college musical, will begin un- 
der the big tent of the AMT at 
8:00. Another performance of this 
frolic will be given Saturday 

That same night, Harry Mar- 
shard and his orchestra will play 
at the all-college dance in Baxter

an eminent musical figure in high 
social circles in the Boston area 
and has recorded for Unicorn

the main attraction, along with a

other delights. 

Cast Records Music Of ^Ballyhoo'; 
Sunday Session Lasts Until 4 A.M. 

"Ballyhoo: take one!" Beffinniiii;; at 2:30 |).ni. Sunday the cast 
and orchestra of "IJallvhoo", the original imisictd heinn i^rcsented 
this weekend and iie.xf al tlie WW. recorded the 15 musical num- 
bers of the show for a s])eeial 12 inch recording. At 4;()() a.m. Mon- 
day inorniiiu;. they had recorded S5 minutes of music. 

Under the direction of Ted Castle "fiO, the music was tape 
recorded by Bob Guy of Audio- 

sonic Recording Co., Inc., New 
York. Kay Reynolds, of Benning- 
ton, assisted. Immediately after 
the session, Guy drove to New 
York, edited the tapes, cut the 
master recording and delivered 
the master to the pressing com- 
pany by 12 noon Monday. 

The records are being sold in 
the lobby for the audiences and 
are available by mail from the 
Adams Memorial Theatre. "Tliere 
is really no way to gauge the mar- 
ket for this sort of thing at Wil- 
liams," said Castle, "so we have 
ordered a very limited pressing." 
He said that the discs are "very 
high quality and fidelity best ap- 
preciated on high fidelity players." 

Tire recording session included 
detailed rehearsals of the cast 
and orchestra under the direction 
of Otto Frolich plus several re- 
cordings of each number. The best 
sections of various recordings were 
selected for the final edited tape. 

The recordings were delivered 
in New York on Thursday to stu- 
dents who packed them in the 
record jackets on the way back to 
Williamstown so that they could 
be sold at the first performance. 

Ephs Beat Wesleyan 
In Debate Tourney 

Williams won the Turner Debate 
Championship Trophy in a close 
contest with Wesleyan last Sat- 

The debate, conducted in two 
rounds, was a split between Wil- 
hams and Wesleyan, Williams 
winning the first round and Wes- 
leyan winning by a narrow mar- 
gin in the second round. The top- 
ic, the national right to work laws, 
was debated on both the affirma- 
tive and negative sides by Wil- 
liams teams. The affirmative team 
was Dick Contant '59, and Larry 
Carton '60. Seniors Dave Phillips 
and Tom Synnot made up the 
negative team. i 

Amherst, also .supposed to com- 
pete in the contest, wasi unable 
to make the engagements.

The proposal for secretarial help iii the sort 
iuj^ process ot rusliing lypities an old trend, now 
slutting into high gear uii tiie Williams campus 
Students are increasnigiy unvvaiing to accept res- 
ponsibility eitlier tor tiien- |)iiDiic ideals or their 
private actions. 

The Rushuijr Committee's function presup- 
poses an intimate involvement witn all phases of 
tlie rushmg system, 1 liis proposal attacks tire bas- 
is of tlie committee's effectiveness. 

Why should every fraternity member pay for 
outside clerical help when students are capable ot 
handling tlie sorting process themselves r* We have 
ail automatic familiarity witli the "hows" and 
"whys" of tlie system; secretaries would require 
prolonged traiumg. 

The obvious motivation of this plan is a ba- 
sic mistrust of tire committee's integrity. It fhes 
full in the face of the trust placed in die commit- 
tee by tlie student governing bodies. More im- 
portant, it challenges tlie iiushing Committee's 
sincere determination to secure and maintain 
objectivity, as demonstrated in its persistent a- 
wareness of tlie problem and the honor code 
with which tlie committee members will bind 
themselves next fall. 

The system has operated for only one year. 
It developed minor flaws, which tlie committee 
lias worked conscientiously to eradicate. Have 
we given tlie committee a fan hial? 

Earher diis week both rushing arbiter and 
freshnian Dean Cole asked the committee to 
handle permissions for freshmen to enter frater- 
nity houses on special occasions. This action re- 
presents a tiansf er of responsibility to tlie student it not a sad paradox tliat the rush- 
ing arbiter should express faith ui students to 
handle tlieir own affairs, while students them- 
selves reject responsibility witli a plan for sec- 
retarial assistance? 


Enter Houseparty (big weekend). 

Accompanied by familiar format, typed 
bands, Student Union maelstrom, cocktail par- 
ty-dance bedfellows, self-conscious striving to 
have fun. 

Stage diiections: Get dates, win keg; then 
be gregarious and move your date around, dance 
to Marshard, hit the Carnival, etc. but for God's 
sake, have fun. 

It seems that the tri-annual blow-off is los- 
ing favor here. Much of the audience at Wil- 
hams is becoming more and more receptive to 
impromptu off-weekends. Yet we certainly are 

trying hard enough to preserve the half-centuiy 
old tradition surrounding the 72 hour marathon. 
Perhaps too hard. Why not think less in 
terms of a $1600 society band, crowded enter- 
tainment schedules and resultant confusion and 
more along the lines of imaginative informality. 

Eyebrows should be raised to the Freshman 
Council and the Class of '61 for a fine job in 
directing traffic for this Houseparty. Future con- 
gestion, nowever,could be thinned out for a more 
palateable weekend. 

Bennington Police 

By Kurt Rosen 

A lonely symbol of authority at Bennington 

College is their police force. 

Bennington, unlike Williams, has no cut sys- 
tem, no driving restrictions, no compulsory cha- 
pel—but their campus police force is over twice 
the size of that at Williams. The familiar night 
watchman at the entrance of the campus has 
the pleasant task of signing the guls in and out 
between 11 p.m. and 6:30 a.m. He knows the 
names and faces of every one of the 350 girls. 

The other private poHcemaii and three plain 
elothesnien roam the spacious campus enforcing 
the college regulations. Visitors widiout dates 
are not permitted to go on campus after 10 p.m. 
Every evening the police usually stop several 
of these nocturnal visitors trying to sneak past 
the guardliouse after hours. Outside of such in- 
cidents and rare cases of inviting inebriated 
guests to leave, the pohce work is routine. 

George McGuue, the head guard, has been 
on die Bennington College police force since 
its inception witii tiie founding of the college in 
1936. At that time. Officer McGuue claims, only 
two policemen were needed as the post-depres- 
sion students were quieter and more disciplined. 
Students from RPl, Union, Dartinoutli, and Wil- 
liams have always frequented Eennington tlie 
most often. WiUiams students, McGuire states, 
are usually die most numerous— and mischevious. 

Despite the presence of one poUceman for 
every seventy girls, Bennmgton is anything but 
a pohce state. The students attempt to develop 
themselves in the progressive tradition while the 
guards try to remain in the background. Oc- 
casionally the policemen come forward and as- 
sert then power over the girls in a friendly water

Letters To The Editoi 

To the RECORD: 

The joint CC-SC Rushing Committee has recently comiilcted 
a rejiort upon die Rushing System. It is seldo:ii that we witness 
such an intelligtuit combination of idealism and realism. There 
are, however, a few suggestions I would like to offer— suggest jquj. 
in keeping with die aims if not the conchisioiis of the committee 

The committee states "most everybody would vote for total 
O]iportunity as an end, but die votes for an effective means u| a- 
cliieving it would be few if an effective means would equal, is it 
almost surely must someday, a e()in|)ulsoiy plan." Total Opjioitun. 
ity in an achievable form presupposes two conditions: 1. RcMtiilj. 
zation and destigmatization of tlie non-affiliate grou)!; 2. Desl rati- 
fication of the fraternites. Compulsory total op]50itunity olfors 

Tlie RECORD has pointed out diat die effect of last year's i,,tal 
opportunity was further stratification of the non-affiliate giiup. 
The action of Messrs. Hassler, Morse, and Rose uiKloilined the 
need for a respectable non-affiliate grouji. These individuals must 
not be denied the right of a normal and fulfilling life. 

Tlie solution here seems long-range and psychological. We 
must remove the stigma by ceasing to speak of and treat fraternity 
membership as normal and necessary. 

When we turn to stratification we find something more tan- 
gible but basically elusive. Each house has a |K'rsoiiality of its own, 
and the "top" house for an individual is the house whose i^eisdiial- 
ity best meshes with his. 

A vicious circle exists. Student opinion has set up false crilciia 
for judging houses, and student leadership and privilege has tiiid- 
ed to follow and perpetuate this judgment. 

I would suggest the following as partial remedies: 

1. A realization of the non-advisory functions of the 


must be followed by a more divtTsified distribution of these pusts. 

2. Other honorary posts must be better distributed. 

3. Potential and very real advantages to some houses, siieli 
as access to rushiiig list by certain men (luring Uie rushing peridd, 
must be aboli.shed. 


4. Measures such as raising house (jiiotus and stiffe 
nishing period, must be abolished. 

5. CC members in tlie future must subordinate house liival- 
ties to college loyalty. 

If the fraternities are to be preserved under a system of total 
opportunity, it is necessary that the student body by psycholoiiical 
and practical means strike out at these twin evils of stratification 
and stigniatization. If we fail the only possible alternatives are 
heartbreak for some or comjiulsion for all.

Surveying the sports picture this weekend, it becomes an 
paiciit that at least two teams liave the opportunity to show that 
,1„.\' belonj; in the select group of undefeated teams at Williams 
On iM-iday the track team takes on Amherst for the Little Three 
Championship, while on Saturday the lacrosse team plays a high 
l^ rated Dartmouth team. Neither game is the last of the season 
|„i cither (•lub, but we would venture to predict that wins this 
uvckeiid would virtually assure clean slates in both sports 

The showing of the track team against Wesleyan last Friday 
and HPl on Tuesday gives evidence that there is little to worry 
ab.Kit from Amherst. With four men. Hatcher, Ide, Schoeller and 
Scl.weighauser, certain to amass forty points between them and 
Hiil Fox a sure first in the 440 it looks like a tough combination to 

l3artniouth should provide considerable opposition for the 
Stic krnen and no doubt will 'hang' one or two men on Soph Georee 
li,,\nton. ^ 

A win for the lacrosse team over the Indians would not only 
them a victory over the best team on their schedule but 
(■ that dieir defense has jelled enough to take anything else 
ly run into. Desjnte the weak opposition in the first two games 
il was ajiparcnt that the team would have to be able to clear the

sliiic, Harvard and Amherst should allow Coach Ostendarp to go

Lacrosse Team Stays Undefeated 
With 22-4 Victory At Middlebury 

The varsity lacrosse team continued its high-scoring winning 
si leak by trouncing Middlebury Wednesday on the Panther turf by 
a score of 22-4. ^ 

The team's third straight victory was characterized by rough 
plav. Tlie two teams collected a total of 51 penalties. Williams 
niiisiderably improved on ground ball, short pass and defense- 
play, dominated the action, ' ' 

the action, tak 
ill!,' 47 shots to Middlebury's eigh- 
teen. In contrast to the two pre- 
vious contests, there was healthy 
clislribution of scoring for the 
Eplimen. Both attack and mid- 
field scored eleven goals apiece. 

Despite two Middlebury count- 
ers early in the first period, the 
play rapidly became one-sided. 
The second midfield <Rog Dank- 
meyer, Pebble McCann, and Chico 
Cutler) maintained their role as 
hiKh scoring trio with a total of 
sixteen points. The first midfield 
I Jim Richardson, Wheels Miller 
and Palmer White) tallied four. 

In the attack position, despite 
periodic three-man coverage of 
either George Boynton or Nick 
Ratcliffe, the two ace sophomores 
scored fourteen points collective- 
ly. In addition, Pitt Johnson fired 
in two goals and assisted for 
three more. 

Riding a three-game win streak 
into the crucial Dartmouth game, 
Coach Ostendarp says: "We know 
tiiat we have to make the Dart- 
mouth game our best effort this 
.season if we expect to beat them. 
The game Is a test of our true 
strength. We are definitely the 
underdogs and Dartmouth is a 
senior ball club, improved even 
over last year's fine team."

Ephmen Triumph 
Over Union 6-4; 
Nine Get 10 Hits 

J. B. Morris survived a shaky 
three-run first inning Wednesday 
at Schenectady, before he settled 
down to give up only one run the 
rest of the way as Williams down- 
ed Union 6-4. 

After Union scored their first- 
inning runs on two hits, two walks 
and an error, and one in the sec- 
ond with two infield hits, Wil- 
liams hitters got to Union pitcher 
John Pauth for ten hits, all sin- 
gles, and their six runs. 

The Ephs scored twice in the 
second with Bob McAlaine draw- 
ing a base on balls, and Bill 
Hedeman, Jim Briggs and Norm 
Walker singling. They added two 
more in the fifth on a walk, an 
error, and hits by Captain Rick 
Power and Bob Iverson. 

In the eighth Walker drew a

Varsity Track Drops RPl 79-38; 
Aims At Little Three Championship 

Winning their third meet in a 
row by a handy 79-38 margin over 
RPI on Tuesday, the varsity track 
team looked in good shape to drop 
Amherst today and take the Lit- 
tle Three Championship. 

The run away victory was mark- 
ed by the double victories of per- 
ennial winners Chip Ide and Char- 
lie Schweighauser. Despite the 
muddy track Ide captured his spe- 
cialty the 100 yd. dash in 10.1, 
and the 220 in 22.8. Schweighaus- 
er took the low hurdles and the 
high hurdles as well as adding 
three more points with a second 
in the high jump. The lanky sen- 
ior was denied opportunity for ad- 
ditional points when the broad 
jump was cancelled due to the wet 
approach. Despite this Schweig- 
hauser has now averaged over 
fourteen points per meet this

Colgate Golfers Beat 
Williams At Hamilton 

Williams lost their second match 
of the season today to an experi- 
enced Colgate golf team at Ham- 
ilton, N. Y., 5)2 to V,i. Bob Julius 
was the sole winner for the Ephs 
while Bill Tuach tied. 

Coach Dick Baxter was not dis- 
appointed with the team's per- 
formance, however, since most of 
the scores were in the seventies 
and it was a nine hole course. Last 
year Williams trounced the Red 
Raiders 7-0 on the Taconic course. 
The past three matches have 
pointed up the great advantage 
that goes with the home course.

Lack of anything resembling 
depth cost the freshman track 
team a 66-51 loss, Wednesday, to 
the visiting Mt. Hermon squad. 
Williams managed to take eight 
out of thirteen firsts in the meet, 
seven of them by Walt Henrion 
and Bob Judd. 

Obviously the outstanding men 
in the meet, Henrion and Judd 
paraded to victory in one event af- 
ter another with monotonous reg- 
ularity, but woeful support from 
the remainder of the team. The 
only other Williams winner was 
Terry Allen who ran a 2:08.2 half 

Judd won the high jump, the 
shot put and the javelin while 
Henrion confined his talents to 
the track events, winning the 100 
yard dash, the 120 high hurdles, 
the 220 and the 220 low hurdles.

Tennis Team Trounces Vfest Point 
For Second Victory In Succession 

The varsity tenuis team continued its winning streak Wed- 
nesday by defeatinf^ a comparatively weak Army team, 7-2, at 
West Point. Only the first singles and the first doubles matches 

At first singles, Ca]7t. George Huff of Army defeated Hirsh- 
man, 6-1, 6-0. The Williams player could not keej) the ball going, 
hitting long over the baseline or into the net. In the number 2 spot, 
Tom Shuhnan won from Don Williams, Army's intercollegiate 

squash star, 6-3, 6-4. Shulman 

This has worked both for and 
against Williams but against in 
two out of the three most impor- 
tant matches. 

Williams lost to Harvard on a 
strange and short course outside 
Boston. They beat a favored Bos- 
ton College at home after B. C. 
had beaten Harvard. 

Hans Halligan lost a close match 
to George Allen of Colgate 3 and 
2 but shot a 74. Rob Poster and 
Mike Beemer both lost by the 
same score while Sam Davis was 
edged out by one hole.

the hartwarming gospel of jazz 

After its feature role in the com-

will be nearing the end of a dis-

The Five has been preaching the 
gospel of college jazz for the last

sides playing practically every col- 
lege within reach, it has "warmed 
the hearts of the faithful" at the

in Jimmy Ryan's in New York and, 
for the last two spring vacations, 
at the Elbow Beach Surf Club in 
Bermuda. Three members of the 
band played for music-hungry 
crowds throughout Europe last 
summer as part of the College 

The jazz of the group is dy-

Deerfield Beats Ephs 

Deerfield Academy defeated the 
freshman tennis team 6 to 3 Tues- 
day at Deerfield. 

On n day when most tennis 
matches would be called due to 
inclement weather, the team went 
indoors to absorb its second loss 
in as many outings. The match 
was played on auxiliary courts set 
up in the covered hockey rink. 

The red asphalt courts proved 
too fast a surface for the Ephs, 
who once again made a poor 
showing in the singles, winning 
only two matches. John Leathers, 
strong at number three, defeated 
Bob Hethering handily, 0-3, 6-1. 
Row Bankes, playing number six, 
defeated Jon Mendelson, 6-4, 6- 
3. Other singles efforts were not 
so fortunate as Bruce Brian at 
number one, Fred Knsten at num- 
ber two, Steve Thayer at number 
four, and Kevin Morrissey at 
number five fell straight-set vic-

Capacity Audiences Enjoy 'Ballyhoo'; 
Kudos Given To Vail, Rains, Music 

by Owen Hatteras II 

Capacity audiences enjoyed the 
performance of "Ballyhoo", 1958 
edition of the All-College Musi- 
cal, this year entirely under the 
auspices of Cap and Bells, Inc. To 
this reviewer it was the splendid 
music and lyrics of Mike Small 
and Howell Price which, for the 
most part, gave the .show its life. 

Top Kudos must be tossed to 
author-director Robert Vail, Jr., 
whose book, although weak in pla- 
ces, and, unfortunately, written 
beyond the capacity of his actors, 
was far superior to last year's ef- 
fort, exhibiting a real sense of the 
theatre and, above all, good taste. 
Oftimes this reviewer was acutely 
embarrassed by the .show's "dra- 
matic moments." 

We cannot say whether the 
fault lay in the writing, directing, 
or the acting. Dave Kearn's sets 
were in keeping with the colorful 
carnival atmosphere of the show. 

In regards acting, Jennifer Rains 
literally stole the show. Although 
she had difficulty with her 
straight lines, she can belt out a 
song as we have never before 
heard a song belted on the AMT 

Tim Tully, Stan Lawder, Peter 

Schroeder, Dixie Griffin, Barbara 

j Kapp, and Skip Chase all delight- 

ed the audience with distinctive 

Tony Stout and Linda March 
adequately filled the leading roles 
of Ben and Ginny although we felt 
that their performances lacked 
the necessary vigor. 

All in all "Ballyhoo" is a big, 
colorful musical, designed for all- 
around fun, with the added ad- 
vantage over past .years of utiliz- 
ing the talents of a bevy of lovely 
Bennington girls. With music and 
spirit as its most outstanding in- 
gredients, "Ballyhoo" makes a

end festivities. One date suffered 
a fractured leg while participating

Window of a car was also smash- 
ed in during the fun. 

Tlie finishing touch was the 
demolition and incineration of an

Pifshman quad Sunday afternoon. 
Tlie efforts of the Williamstown 
fire Department to douse the blaze 
and water down the pools of gas- 
oline were greeted with cheers 
fi'om the onlooking crowd. 

The rain washed out the Fresh- 
men's plans to have a carnival 

Saturday evening, but chairman 
Whif Floyd said that he hoped to 
be able to hold the carnival this 
Saturday for parent's weekend. 
The minature golf course was the 
sole exhibit to survive the mon- 
soons and will be open to the pub- 
lic during the week. 

The student musical, Ballyhoo, 
played to a standing-room crowd 
over the weekend. The producers 
announced that the hi-fi record-

ings of the musical are still avail- 
able. The production made a hit 
with the student audience. 

Butch Anderson, head of Fri-

that the combination of Harry 
Marchard and Phlnney's Favorite 
Five made the dance successful 
Saturday night was marked by a 
variety of parties ranging from 
square dancing to a Fljji Island 

wer of fear of a Russian invasion 
of the free world, in the unplea- 
sant possibility of helpless people 
being inflicted with an ugly death 
against the desperate compulsion 
arisen in American thought to 
preserve the balance of power at 
all costs. 

The answer to this problem Is 
simple: freeze development of nu- 
clear weapons on both sides. 

Both the United States and 
Russia have made proposals for 
such a program. The crucial point 
lies in policing a ban thoroughly 
enough to satisfy the United 
States without violating Russian 
"national sovereignty." No agree- 
ment seems forthcoming. The tests 
will continue. 

73.5 per cent of the 300 Amherst 
men tested were definitely a- 
gainst "discontinuing atomic test- 
ing in the future, regardless of 
whether or not there are any in- 
ternational agreements on dis- 
armament." A representative fac- 
ulty group showed a "middle of 
the road" disposition. 

Boer, who spoke in chapel Sun- 
day, earned his B. D. at Union 
Theological Seminary of which 
he was made assistant dean last 
year. He is 31 years old. 

The petition for sophomore 
driving was rejected on the 
grounds of administrative diffi- 
culties. The trustees recognized, 
however, the problem of trans- 
portation to and from Williams- 
town which has been aggravated 
by the discontinuation of B&M 
trains to Boston. A committee has 
been formed to find ways to alle- 
viate the problem. 

The grant from U. S. Steel was 
part of a $2 million outlay given 
to New England colleges I Amherst 
and Wesleyan not Included). It 
will be u.sed for faculty salaries. 

Other Appointments 

Appointed to succeed Jalnes Os- 
tendarp as coach of varsity la- 
crosse was William D. McHenry. 
He will also coach freshman foot- 
ball. McHenry played varsity foot- 
ball and lacrosse for four years at 
Washington and Lee. He was foot- 
ball captain in 1953, his senior 

Peter DeLisser of the Athletic 
Department will fill Ostendarp's 
present positions as head coach 
of wrestling and assistant coach 
of football. Ostendarp will be as- 
sistant football coach at Cornell. 

Leaves of absence were granted 
to James M. Burns, who is run- 
ning for Congress, and Samuel 
K. Edwards, who will continue 
graduate work at Princeton. Pro- 
fessors were appointed to fill posts 
in the departments of biology, 
physics, economics, mathematics 
and music.

Kim To Explain Why 
Orientals Hate West 

The International Relations Club 
is sponsoring a colloquium tonight 
by Warner Kim '59 on the topic 
"Why Do The Orientals Hate The 

Kim intends to present evidence 
supporting the fact that hatred 
exists and to give some reasons 
for it. He will open the floor for 
questions, protests and comments. 

Having lived under both the 
Communist and non-Communist 
governments in Korea, Kim has 
observed that the feeling against 
occidentals was the same under 
both regimes. 

Kim was born and brought up In 
North Korea. He attended junior 
high school in Pyongyang. During 
the middle of the Korean conflict, 
he and his family moved to Seoul 
where he attended high school and 
one year of college. 

After passing exams and other 
criteria, Kim came to the U. S. 
and attended a small mldwestern 
college, where he remained for one 
semester before transferring to

All is now c|uiL't oil the Western Massachu- 
setts frontier. 

With house|)arty hiNors jainined into o\er- 
ni<;lit bau;s and "Ballyhoo reeord all)unis under 
arms, hundreds of alt'eeted and/or at'fectioiuite 
females ha\e returned to their res|5ecti\e educa- 
tional aljodes. Each of them, we teel, must be 
impressed with the party flavor of Williams. 

For most, it was a weekend of con\i\ ial hos- 
pitality, lint a small minority, unfortunately, set 
the tone, established the fhnor of the party. 

For them the weekend was uiK|uestioiiably a 

The party fhuor was sustained by enerjijetie 
application of tiie usual social <rraces. Drinkiiig 
was undertaken, naturally, for purposes of get- 
tiiiff plastered. W'liy not? It was liouseparties. 

■Success" was achieved. 

Cash was stolen, jjroperty mutilated or thiev- 
ed. Why not? It was houseparties. 

Filially, a car was flip|X'd and iifuited in the 
i'rtshman Quad. It might ha\e exploded, but 
NvTiv not:" It was housejiarties. 

Sunday broue;ht revi\al from alcoholic stu- 
por; headaches; (|ualms about "tlie nii;;ht before. 
iC brought this crude note from a disenchanted 
feinnic AH she disembarked for Boston at 6:00 
A.M. "Thank you for the weekend. Sorry things 
didn't work." 

Tweiitv volunteer firemen sepielched the gas- 
and-rnbber blaze. As steam rose in the Quad, 
(|uiet returned to the Berksliire frontier. 

We too are impressed with the jiarty flavor 
of Williams. 


Another issue of the "Purple Cow" which 
purports to be the college humor magazine 
came out liouse|)arty weekend. 

Since their is no regular |)ublication lor cre- 
ative writing on the Williams campus, the "Pur- 
ple Cow" has a|)parently decided to cuter into 
this field of writing. 'Jaiiie , an original short 
story by Jhn Becket was well written and color- 
ful—but not hilarious, not even humorous. 

An attempt at humor in a short story "Mur- 
der Is Bloody" by John Burghardt was not hu- 
morous, creative, or destructi\e (as some "Pur- 
ple Cow" cartoons in the past ha\e been). Let 
It not be said, however ,that "Murder is Bloody" 
was a complete failure— it did fill up over two 
pages of sjiace. The "Purple Cow", in keeiiing 
with its standards, has never put out an issue 
with blank pages. 

Ed lleilenstein's cartoon of "our architectural 
heritage" was the best cartoon in the issue. His 
motley building was a composite of the archi- 
tecture on campus. Students with or without an 
art appreciation course could get a chuckle from 
this cartoon satirizing the unorganized architec- 
ture on cam|)us. More of l\eifenstein's clever 
drawings would have enhanced the issue. 

RECORD Satire 

Several other short articles a]j]Dcared in tlie 
spring houseparty magazine— not particularly 
4()0tl or bad articles. If anyone read them, it was 
prooabiy because it was a rainy day or provided 
lu e.vceilent excuse to get away from a bhiid 
-uuc. rliere was one amusing satire— on the 
At,<^.OiiD, no less. 

'I he Williams Wrecker" as s|)ooled in this 
clever article ran such articles as a logical argu- 
ment lor buying more ping pong tables in the 
student union. The article, "Ping Pong means 
JUSTICE" contended that ping pong was being 
discriminated against in favor of ]5ool. A foot- 
iiall picture entitled "Shot of Decisive Play of 
the Came" showed a mere hodge-podge of feet. 
(Jriginal (at least, the BECOUD hopes these arc 
original!) satires like the one of the "Williams 
Wrecker" add imineasurabh' to an otherwise dull 

Immature slapstick himior such as tb.e cover 
of the "Purple Cow" board in a mud-slinging 
fight should be eliminated. While the board was 
discreet enough to sling mud, actions of this 
type may, nevertheless, give the magazine the 
reputation of being dirty. In addition such ac- 
tivities are a waste of time, magazine space, and

Letters To The Editor 


Should rushing be made fair? 

Almost everyone sincerely believes the procedural and admiu- 
istrative asjjeets of rushing should treat all houses ei|ual]y. Today 
a letter has been published— a sincere ellort to support a view as 
to who should tabulate freshman and fraternity |)referential rush- 
ing lists. 

Students who tabulated these lists last year were on their hoii- 
or to keep them confidential— so no fraternity would have the 
unfair advantage of knowing how individual freshmen rank.;] 
them. Members on the committee were placed in a |)ositi()n to n .. 
this confidential information to iiel|3 their own houses or even i 
friend's. Some members of the coinmittee did use their positi' ■, 
inifairly. One campus leader (a member ol (iargoyle who ask< I 
that his name be withheld) admitted: "My lioiisi' last year didi, i 
have any representatives on the tabulating eominittee. A iricii I 
of mine who was on the coininillee told me how sevi'ial of oi i 
|)ros])ects ranked us. Naturally, we arranged our lushing |)ians m 
accordance with this information iiy pmtiiig our bi'tter nun ( i 
those with whom we had a good ehanee. " 

As long as any fraternity is di-prived ot (iiis iulormalion win .• 
tbeir rivals have it, an unfair advantage will e.vist. 

As long as the present tabulating system uses student Jul; , 
fraternities must rely on their rivals' integrity on the tabulatii ,^ 
committee. This is fine— but, it seems almost inconceivable th.,l 
a tabulating committee member coidd go back to his fraleriiHv 
and rush sophomores on an eciual basis with others who don i 
know the rushees secret |)relerences. These fraternity niemlxis 
should not be |3ermitted to rush while they have this advantag' , 
If the houses don't feel stiongly enough about helping the Rush- 
ing Committee, tiiey should not be asked to saciitiee one of tlicii 
members to the tabulating eominittee. 

Outside help, then, must be secured. 

Professional secretaries antl even some laculty wives are avail- 
able and willing to run the preferential rushing lists througii the 
IBM machines at a nominal cost. Does this pr()])osal reallv scon 
like tile inanifestation of a "sour grapes" attitude— or is it an al 
tempt to aeiiieve "fair play" in rushing? 

Sour Grapes Or Fair Play? 

To the RECORD: 

Tiie allegation that the fraternities are themselves iucapahlr 
ot adininisteiing nishing weakens the fiaternily svsteni infiniteK 
more than tiie "eieetiic secretaries" could possibly streugtiien it. II 
is absolutelv ink'asible that a rusiiing committee which lias or- 
ganized anci planned the o|)eration ol the system would not neces- 
sarily have close contact with its operation during rushing. To 
(|uesti()u the motives of the elected representatives adniinislering 
it re(|uires strong sell-exaniination for electing these individuals in 
a representative iashion and tiieii wishing to remove tlieir function 
when it does not coincide with the itleas of a minorltv. 

Tlie inlormation which even a iion-ohjective committee could 
derive for the benefit of membeis" houses is infinitesimal vvlicii 
compared to what a good job of lushing would do. I suspect the 
complaint is something of a '"sour-grapes" search lor a scapegoat

Too Many i'^naities 

In a game marred by sixteen 
penalties, Williams was often 
playing with one or more men in

visitors a chance to stay even 
with the Ephs, but a strong out-

Coach JIM OSTENDAKP and Captain DAVK ANDREW size 
things up prior to the Eph victory over Dartmouth. 

Diclc Baxter called a "survival of 
the fittest" match, sophomore Bob 
Julius raclced up his eleventh win 
of the season to lead the team 
In a triple victory against Holy 
Cross 6-1, Connecticut 7-0 and 
Middlebury 7-0. 

Saturday's weather should liave 
Inflated the medal scores but Ju- 
-lus cam".' in with a 75 while Rob 
Foster posted a 79. Junior Hans 
ialligan brought in a 78 for the 
day. Sam Davis was forced to play 
his tight match out to the last 
put on the eighteenth where he 
was edged by liis Holy Cross op- 

In a .yame in which weather 
played an important role, the Wil- 
liams varsity lacrosse team edged 
out a powerful Dartmouth squad, 

A crowd which varied between 
50 and 200 Williamstown house- 
party spectators, depending on the 
severity of the cold rain and the 
higli winds, saw the Ephmen pull 
into the lead in the third period 
and retain this margin for the re- 
mainder of the contest. The vic- 
tory established the Williams team 
as one of the leading lacrosse pow- 
erhouses in the country, Dart- 
mouth being the first real test to 
the Ephmen's power. 

Tlie Indians pulled into an ear- 
ly lead in the first period as Diclc 
Frische, with assistance from at- 
tacliman Dave Rice, fired one past 
Williams goal-tender Jocli Jan- 
Icey at 3:35. The visitors reinforc- 
ed their lead as captain Rice, 
Dartmouth's major threat, added 
another tally on a sole break. 

The score rose to 3-0 for the 
visitors as PrLsche tallied unassis- 

ted for his second goal early in the 
second period. Ephman midfielder 
Rog Dankmeyer dwindled Dart- 
mouth's lead to 3-1 a minute la- 
ter as he dodged two defensemen 
and fired a shot past goaltender 
Randy Malin. 

The Williams squad caught fire 
in the third stanza, pulling into 
the lead with five goals. Jim Ri- 
chardson shot Williams .second 
goal at 1:35 on an assist from 
sophomore ace Nick Ratcliffe. One 
minute later the game was dead- 
locked as Pebble McCann caught 
a quick pass from George Boyn- 
ton and whistled a shot past Ma- 
tin's feet. Boynton continued his 
prodigious season's scoring as he 
tallied unassisted at 6:53. 

Bee DeiVIallie, flipped in Wil- 
liams' last two goals of the period 
from the crease position, aided 
both times on quick passes from 
Boynton. Indian attackman Hoyt 
Goodrich rounded out the period's 
scoring at 13:50. 

The game tightened up in the 
final frame as DeMallie and Boyn- 
ton, both hitting after flips from 
Ratcliffe, concluded Williams' 
SDoring within nine minutes.

Private Gifts To Higher Education Doubled 
Over 1955; Universities Take Large Bite 




vate contributions to college 
jvel education have shown an in- 
crease of 102 per cent over 1955 
.lecording to a survey quoted in 
Che New York "Times". The total 
contribution to the 910 institutions 
included in the sm'vey was $833, 
000, 000. 

The report stated that similar 
donations are expected to double 
in the next five to six years. Nev- 
ertheless, college and university 
expenses shall increase even more 
in the same period due to rising

Herberg Will Speak 

Will Herberg will address a 
Parents' weekend congregation 
in the Thompson Memorial 
Chapel Sunday. The Jewish 
theologian and sociologist will 
also participate in a discussion 
at Chaplain William Coffin's 

Herberg has written several 
joolcs including one which is 
p.-5rt of the reading list for Re- 
ligion 2, entitled "Protestant. 
C.ithoiic, Jew". 

A former believer in Marx-

berg remained a Jew. 

In the thirties before his con-

cording to Coffin, has made 
quite an impression on his lis- 
teners by his dynamic and con- 
troversial speaking.
